Brow field building land created by youths

Led away in handcuffs: Suspected young HPC's arrested yards from just one of the new brown field sites across the UK

As towering flames rip through tinder-dry bracken, a suspected HPCer is handcuffed and led away in this extraordinary picture. This blaze, which ravaged more than two acres of clifftop at a seaside beauty spot, is one of thousands of wildfires which have spread across Britain in the last few days. Firemen say many were started deliberately to create more space for desperately needed housing. The forest and heathland a traditional NIMBY breeding ground has been cleared with fires across the countryside.This has been aided by one of the driest springs in decades.

    Yep, burn the lot and hopefully Barratt or Wimpy will be able to house young activists such as these.
    If we all work together we will beat nature

  • Not really funny. Britain has the lowest level of wood cover of any European country except Ireland. Instead, we have loads and loads of subsidised pesticide-soaked farmland. In ecological terms, the former is incredibly valuable and the latter a complete desert. We should be protecting woodland as much as possible and letting more ‘green fields’ be developed.

  • There’s not so much of a housing shortage in Wales though, is there? Not to mention plenty of ex-industrial and ex-mining land. Shame there are no jobs any more.

  • Brown or burnt, this is no longer green space. I guess this is what happens when you leave vast areas of space unused, nature takes over.
