The editor of the Somerset Echo was forced to cancel his family holiday and fly back to Somerset after rumours of a stamp collection broke on social media.
A full emergency meeting of Somerset County Council and police constabulary has been called to see if the collection contains a Penny Black, although anonymous sources say this is highly unlikely.
It is the most controversial news headline to hit Somerset in more than 200 years of shit reporting, eclipsing the great ‘I Have a Bellybutton That Looks a Bit Like Napoleon’ headline that broke in 1798.
Guild of Hats
Members of the Royal Guild of Hats, who are based in the County, reacted with fury after the Stamp Collecting controversy denied them a front page scoop. The Echo had planned to run an exclusive on local hats.
