    Ha, what a load of tripe as usual by the LT. Forever spooning out shite to the citizens of Lancashire.

    "And police have warned anyone caught will be prosecuted "

    Prosecuted with what, exactly?

    You're right it doesn't matter, except for the small-time paper and small-minded people of Rossendale.

    i love a news article thanks for posting

    i like some of the comments on the website aswell


    "Is it anymore disrespectful than turning churches into pubs / nightclubs resturants or even fireplace warehouses. I am not condoning in any way what they did. In recent times burial sites have been cleared of the dead to make way for new build houses & industrial units was that not just as disrespectful."

    "I fail to see how they were 'mocking the dead' because there was no dead people in the disused hospital morgue. Whether they should have been there or not is another point, but this story is pure sensationalism with a few rent-a-quotes thrown in for added measure. Good publicity for the Urban Explorers website, tho."

    "Prosecution for what ? Going into a derelict building owned by people who couldn't even keep the lead on the roof"

    Looks like the Lancashire Telegraph may have shot themselves in the foot after reading the comments online it appears not so shocking after all AND I am going to invoice them for using my picture:thumb

    sorry to any other explorers who wont now get to visit this place because of probable hightened security.

    I'm at work at the moment, but if you pm me an email, I'll send you the defence you can expect from the LT 'legal department'

    Its sad how newspapers blow things out of proportion to make it sound so dramatic to fill pages.At least most of the comments left are quite positive.
    Can't understand the notion of stepping up security to protect the site and then its getting ripped down to build houses on.What a waste of taxpayers money.

    Thanks Dr Howser but it was tongue in cheek and probably wont be asking for payment for my picture:)

    Spoke to Maybenot 1330 before and told him about him being in a Lancashire online paper and that we were called bonged up and unwashed.,,.he is at the download festival and he said that the description is mostly correct :D
