A sat nav has directed an African Zulu Warrior tribe 200 miles out of their way following a wrong input.

They had the correct address on their paperwork, but the incorrect postcode.

A nine-strong dance troupe arrived at a school to give a cultural performance, but realised they should have been at St Anne's in London, not St Anne's, a special needs school, in Yorkshire.

After a few phone calls, they managed to secure an impromptu booking. They put on two much appreciated, if unexpected, performances for the children, aged between 2 and 19.

A spokesman for the dancers said: "The school in London were absolutely fine about it. They were very gracious about the whole thing. They were disappointed obviously, but we'll definitely reschedule with them if not this year, then next."

"children, aged between 2 and 19" I bet they went down well with the 19 year old children Laughing

Note it was a special needs school and ages 2 to 19 will refer to physical age, they could be of any mental age.
I have a special needs grandson of 15 (he's taller than me) but mental age of about 5 and a Zulu dance or song he would find facinating.
