Believe that the tarmacers have finished in Lings, they have now moved to Eastfield. 
They will probably gone tomorrow but not sure where to next, don't miss out whilst they are in the area!

Or is it the six fingered advance party from up the road?

I have been following their progress on the Chron website. It really is a joke.

I see they have today removed the ability to comment on all articles, I wonder what that is about. Frankly I find the comments more interesting than the articles.

Agreed - often more informative, up to date and better researched too. Or moronic, but still more entertaining than the preceding prose either way.
I'd assumed that the comments facility was just broken as the Johnston Press websites are technically poor and often faulty, but if they have intentionally removed it altogether then they will see their hit rates and subsequent advertising revenue drop through the floor.

When those comments go up they are usually slanted 95% against our travelling community neighbours, there's always going to be the odd person who sticks up for them and then hits shot down and called all the names under the sun! So Johnston Press don't want the confrontation, complaints, or to be accused of doing nothing about bullying or racism, so it's easier for them to remove the button rather than moderate the comments.
The same thing happened with the weekly Sentencing reports from the courts, when people pointed out that the majority of James were 'foreign' the same sort of infighting happened so they removed the facility to comment on that too.

That's not what's happened here though - the comments facility has disappeared from ALL stories.
