News reaches Astragal of a bit of a misunderstanding.

In AJ 30.03.06, the newsdesk ran a story about the Historic Buildings Liberation Front, which was then followed up in the Guardian two days later - 1 April. Apparently a large swathe of our glorious readership read the piece and concluded that it was an April Fool's article. It was not a joke - it was serious. There really is a nutter running round the towns of Bedfordshire and north Hertfordshire attacking new developments. It's unlikely, verging on the stupid, but it is not made up. You can phone the ever-helpful folk at Bedfordshire Constabulary if you don't believe us.
