The company behind the operation, which has said in a statement that it delved too greedily and too deep, has apologised for unleashing the fearsome Maiar of shadow and flame on the world, but has said that it is fully prepared to comply with a government investigation into how to stop any future monsters being unleashed.
The Balrog, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has descended on the town of Tunbridge Wells in an orgy of death and destruction, and is now recruiting followers to act as henchmen as it begins construction of a vast underground lair. It has said that it is an equal-opportunity employer, and will consider applicants from any ethnic or religious background, though a complete lack of morals and being proficient with a scimitar would be considered a bonus.
The government is planning to pass a motion that would hopefully allow the Balrog to be deported to Europe as part of a hard Brexit, probably to somewhere in Holland.
Speaking on behalf of the EU, the President of the European Parliament has allegedly said that this shall not pass.
