Horror stories

Tearing up cobbles
Tearing up cobbles
Have your say

H stands for heritage and also for horror.

What a horror story, worthy of Hammer House of Horror, the Star reveals with its picture of the ripped-up cobbles of Cornish Street.

I’m reminded of the episode from One Foot In The Grave when Victor Meldrew runs amok on a grass cutter, scalping a carpet and demolishing a conservatory seemingly built by Sir Joseph Paxton.

Seems like the Amey juggernaut has been unleashed again.

It’s not the first time that issues around the removal of cobbles has occurred, only this time it’s not in the vicinity of conservation areas – it’s smack bang in one.

As Victor would say – ’I don’t believe it’
