A pensioner from Huntingdon has been fighting to rid the streets of metric measurements by changing road signs to only show imperial measurements
Derek Norman who's 82, is the chairman of the Active Resistance to Metrification group and has spent the past 16 years removing and altering almost 2,000 road signs across the country
"It's part of our culture and heritage, why should we abandon that? That was our idea that we wanted to preserve our history and it would just be wiped out if everything went metric... I still prefer, and I think most people prefer to use imperial measurements especially with weight height or distance and as I say I think the majority of people still prefer that."
At its height the group had a hundred members, targeting high profile places including the Tower of London and the Houses of Parliament.
However Derek concedes he's now fighting a losing battle and that in 20 years time he predicts all measurements will be metric.
