'Terror alert: don't panic'

It's official then - residents of sleepy ol' mid Wales can rest easy in their beds and fields. The Powys County Times, in a front page EXCLUSIVE, reassures us that the likelihood of being hit by falling debris from an exploding aircraft is, in the words of Lembit Opik MP, 'vanishingly small'.

Mr Opik adds: 'The flight path above Mid Wales is incredibly busy - it's like a motorway in the air but there is nothing to suggest that any terrorist would purposefully detonate a bomb while flying over Powys. There is nothing they could conceivably consider to be a target." Thank goodness for that.
