Hartlepool, Forever Blighted
Hartlepool, that most un-lovely of a whole bunch of hideous North Eastern towns, seems to be cursed three times over.
It is infamous as the place where they thought a monkey that survived a ship-wreck was a French spy and drowned the poor creature by tying it to the pier at low tide.
Then it "enjoyed" Voldemort as MP and is forever blighted by his enoblement.
And now, it gains still more notoriety as the place where they painted a yellow line over a dead hedgehog.
