An early contender for the ‘Whitstable custard shortage’ award for non-story of the year has emerged in the shape of this strange tale from the South Wales Evening Post.
The one-line brief reveals that Llwchwr Town Council “has decided to stack its new Welfare Hall tables differently to see whether it would prevent them being damaged.”
But irrespective of its news value or otherwise, it seems to us that the main problem with the story is that it is rather short on facts. What is the current mode of stacking the tables, for instance? And what sort of damage has been caused to them as a result?
I think we should be told.
