    A similar article to the one featured in The Citizen also appeared in the Gloucestershire Echo, a sister paper that is distributed in Cheltenham instead of Gloucester. I'm assuming the article appears again in the Stroud paper.

    It's virtually the same as the Citizen article - it just cuts out the bit about Cashes Green Hospital and instead talks about the Odeon in Cheltenham and the NCB Coal Research Establishment at Stoke Orchard, with a different layout and some different images, which, once again, they have stolen. :mad:

    It also has some new text, such as "Thrillseekers defying the law..." I also get a nice enlarged quote at the end. :eek:

    Also, in the "Opinion" section of the paper, this popped up - including my name. They're acting like I'm worse than Hitler...

    You scum George. Have you no consideration whatsoever? If I had known you were up to these insane stunts, I would never have gone to West Park with you.

    They're so quick to jump on the same gay old bandwagon that they always overlook the great stories they could run alongside the pictures.

    My parents arn't happy either. After the Coal Reaserch they think you got me into it and think you decieved me. Oh well.

    I can't believe they didn't use my name, they steal my photos but don't give me any of the credit, bloody echo this is what you get for being a paperboy for them and delivering the paper to old people for a year and a half.

    They seem very concerned for our safety more than the property, why dont they just come out with it and say "please please please don't sue us! it upsets our accounts dept." :rolleyes: love their use of words like 'targeted' and 'break in' i've never broken in to any of my explores, just found weaknesses :rolleyes: lock me up contstable :p

    I never broke into Stoke Orchard.Bubblehead and I used the same route as the folks who work on site.But i suppose it sounds more dramatic to say broke in than entered via the main gate.
