The front page of the Easter edition I absolutely loved, especially while we all need some light in our lives. Continuously attempting to work out who is doing what to each other! BUT, one thing sticks out connecting the images to current idiocies in the area, ie the council worker digging the road up so no-one can get past! Look at the herdsmen giving him a verbal serve! There is so much detail in this picture. Thank you.

Ed Note: John Scrivener’s letter (13 April) incorrectly stated that ‘less than one per cent’ rather than the correct ‘and changed less than 15 per cent’. This was a mistake on behalf of The Echo.
