Only in Essex....

From the Daily Mirror via Flying Chair

24 May 2005
TWO Star Wars fans are in a critical condition in hospital after duelling with lightsabres made by filling fluorescent light tubes with petrol.

The pair - a man aged 20 and a girl of 17 - are believed to have been filming a mock fight when one of the devices exploded in woodland on Sunday.

They were rushed to West Herts Hospital before being transferred to the specialist burns unit at Broomfield Hospital, Chelmsford, in Essex.

Police say a third person present at the incident was questioned

Also from Flying Chair a few jokes to give those non-Brits an idea of the charms of Essex girls (and by default the boys!)...and from the Guardian an article by Germaine Greer.
