News is coming in that a homeless virgin has given birth to a baby boy in the car park of the Royal Hull Hotel after being told that there was no room at the inn.

The woman, believed to be from Nazareth in the West Midlands, was due to stay at the Brittania Hotel for a few days in a stay organised by the Raise the Roof Homeless Project but was turned away on the doorstep for looking a bit poor.

Several shepherds who happened to be watchng their flocks yesterday evening on Oak Roads Playing Fields were alerted to the fact that a woman was giving birth by a bright light in the sky.

“Of course we headed straight down to the Royal Hull Hotel to check that everything was alright and sure enough there was a woman in the car park with a donkey and a baby in a litter bin.”

“That’s not particularly weird for Hull, I was surprised by the three blokes with camels if I’m honest but, you know, Hull.”

A spokesman for Brittania Hotels told The Rochdale Herald “nothing says Christmas like a hotel turning away the poor, it’s just a shame that the woman wasn’t a foreign refugee too.”

The hotel is yet to offer the woman a refund.
