Sheep to Mow Wembley Stadium -- April Fool's Day, 2005
The Mirror announced that sheep were going to be used to mow the lawn at Wembley Stadium:

"Their grazing will toughen the turf's roots when it is not being regularly used… Players have had less allergic reactions because the natural fertiliser of droppings has reduced the need for chemicals… Wembley National Stadium Ltd said: 'It's based on methods going back centuries. We are not being taken for fools.'"
