An American woman has been left with a British accent after having a stroke.

This is despite the fact that Tiffany Roberts, 61, has never been to Britain. Her accent is a mixture of English cockney and West Country.

Doctors say Mrs Roberts, who was born and bred in Indiana, has a condition called foreign accent syndrome.

Now I’d be really impressed if she could speak in Cockney Rhyming Slang!

OK — if you read the article to the end it isn’t so exciting. Seems the stroke just altered her speech so it sounds like she has an accent…
