A ‘mass of’ priests were espied kneeling beside the A4411, West of Poppleton, for most of the day yesterday.
However, it would be wrong to conclude that the men of God were performing an act of worship. They were digging. During the day they managed to excavate a number of wildlife tunnels under the carriageway.
Members of Poppleton Council held an emergency meeting to discuss the situation earlier this morning. They eventually decided however, that the customary warning to motorists – …. ……. – was not needed, since the work had already been completed.
