Headline of the Day

The Shropshire Star wins for its:

Telford tyre-burst driver in pothole cash wait

This headline makes good use of the Unit Headline Language identified by Michael Frayn in his novel The Tin Men. (it is worth reading the late Christopher Hitchens on this too.)

The judges also liked the same newspaper's

Call to turn Wem signal box into tearoom

for its evocation of Shropshire life.
