Local citizens, hired and then
dismissed by Segovia Television's production company as extras for
the filming of 'Taxi to Kensington,' chartered a bus to Upper
Puckering to demand their chance at stardom. Meeting with an
unsympathetic film crew, the group grew surly. Unkind words
were exchanged on both sides before a hail of over-ripe tomatoes
were loosed on the crew, the set, and the crowd of
Puckering Village Elder Arthur 'Red'
Covers, expected to support this labour action, was unfortunately
away from the village, and unable to arbitrate the dispute. Several
citizens of both West Bean and East Imbiben spent the night in the
local nick before being released pending further action.
