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.

But today the spoof plans were ruined when a recovery lorry picked up the white van and took it to a scrapyard.

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