"Cows crash through weaver's ceiling smashing tables and chairs after climbing onto the roof of her converted barn"

Another excellent headline, spotted by James Higham and View From The Solent in The Daily Mail:

* Cattle had climbed onto Sue Marshall's sloped roof to reach grass

Well, that's what happens if you get involved in this pretentious growing-grass-on-roofs nonsense, it's not natural and nature has a way of thinking up its own punishments.

They were n't her cows that came through the roof but strayed from somebody else's field via a hole in the fence.
And critics of the Guardian are always going on about "metropolitan bias" !!

DBC, yes, I know, what's the relevance of that?

James Higham said...

Flying cows?

Graeme said...

but but...what is the value of the barn...we need to know!

Mark Wadsworth said...

JH, no, low roof covered in grass. We get one or two of these "cow through roy" stories every year.

G, that's a good point. The Mail has been taking its eye off the ball lately, not every article mentions the house price any more.
