Bid to get abandoned van World Heritage status ruined

The Facebook campaign site Credit: Facebook

A Facebook campaign to get an overturned van awarded World Heritage status has been scuppered.

The vehicle had been in a ditch by the A30 at Ludgvan for so long, locals launched the bid to get it the same status as the City of Bath or the Pyramids.

It could be argued that this was the ultimate aim of the campaigners anyway!
