Local character, Billy Gibbons, who has been known to cause a stir in the past, has featured in a national newspaper today by selling a cup of tea for £12.50 on eBay. The article in The Guardian explains that Billy was taught how to make a proper cup of tea by his mother, and goes on to say that he had up to 30 potential buyers bidding for his "nice cup of tea". His only problem now is how to deliver it — and in admitting this, he said, "By the time it arrives it might not be as nice as it was. But I will be sending a mug or cup with it, so someone might be just as satisfied with my mum's recipe for a nice cup of tea."

Both are foraging for the best on offer, regardless of risk, within limited familiar confines, ignoring the audacity of any law that paints yellow lines on many of its most desirable food collecting areas.The yellow lines outside the Coop are a beacon...
