    Helen, not sure what's happened here, but following the above url took me to an article on an
    arsonist, which I presume isn't anything to do with the 'hit & run' of your subject line. Such is
    the power of the 'net. Dave.

    Ummm...the article I got when following that link is:

    ---------------
    ENGINEERS KILLED IN FUEL TANK
    Two engineers who died after becoming trapped in a fuel tank in Suffolk have been identified as stepfather and son.

    Police have identified the victims as Brian Dove, 55, from Burgh Castle, near Great Yarmouth, and his stepson Charles Buckenham, 52, from Lowestoft, Suffolk.

    Emergency crews recovered the bodies in a seven-hour operation. It is believed the pair were overcome by fumes.
    ---------------

    A car did this?

    cheers!

    Not for me. I get:-

    NEWS STORY

    REWARD FOR CAPTURE OF ARSONISTS A £100 reward has been offered for information leading to the arrest
    and conviction of arsonists in a village in Northamptonshire.

    The reward has been offered by Weedon Parish Council following a spate of fires in litter bins and
    bus shelters.

    The village's community beat officer, Pc Scott Bennett, said: "These are mindless acts of
    vandalism."

    And now it's talking about a trailer manufacturer laying folk off.

    But if you click on the link at the bottom (East Anglia news index) you come to a page with a
    further link to the hit and run story.

    Apparently a 28 year-old Peterborough woman has now been arrested for failing to stop, and bailed.

    6 points and £200?

    This is obviously a plot to get us interested in East Anglia. Some hope! Strange how Helen seems to
    have disappeared?

    There's a rather more profound reason than which offence it is. I once saw an American woman with a
    T shirt saying. 'Women Have Balls.' But they haven't, you know. I've looked.

    Or did I flunk geography badly . . . .

    My wife and I went on holiday to East Anglia once, after 4 days we were so homesick that we headed
    north looking for some hills ( We weren't cyclists then, we barely are now)
