No Saxon find for archaeologists
Archaeologists who started excavations to uncover the remains of an ancient Saxon rotunda have been disappointed.

A radar scan of Grange Court, in Leominster, showed what the team believed to be a 1,000-year-old round church and a dig began in August.

At the time the area, which is used as a council car park, was hailed as a site of international importance.

Bruce Watson said the radar machine had produced a freak and misleading round image, leaving the experts embarrassed.
