Oops

Spare a thought for Zottegem, a small town in East Flanders where a number of public-spirited residents decided to set up a horror trail — a six kilometre walk along which walkers can find horror stories from the local history.

Unfortunately, they forgot to mention it to anyone. So when someone saw a couple of pairs of legs poking out of a pond, the emergency services were called and the police, the fire brigade and an ambulance all converged on the banks of the pond to rescue… Two pairs of fake legs.

Now that people know about it, the horror trail is staying up until Christmas and I think the residents behind it deserve full marks for public spiritedness and thinking creatively about things to do during lockdown. They do lose a few points, however, for causing a panic.
