Hilda Murrell remembered in Shrewsbury - after a fashion

Readers of a certain age will remember the 1984 murder in Shrewsbury of the rose grower and environmental campaigner Hilda Murrell.

I reviewed A Thorn in Their Side, a book on the case by her nephew Robert Green, here last year.

The Shropshire Star brings the welcome news that a road in the town has now been named after her.

It also brings the less welcome news that they have spelt her name incorrectly.
