13 December 2013 - Safety Warning
A Ukranian Ironbelly, pictured above during its infamous escape involving Harry Potter, is still on the loose. The dragon in question keeps returning to Gringotts to wreak havoc. The Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures has not yet been able to safely capture the beast. When attending Diagon Alley, and specifically Gringotts, members of the magical community should be especially careful and keep an eye on underage wizards & witches. We apologise for any inconvenience and assure you that your Ministry is working hard to rectify the situation. Merry Christmas.
