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.
