THIS IS A STORY/ A VERY SPECIAL STORY/ IT'S ABOUT BRIAN JONES/ THE ONE IN THE ROLLING STONES: Trouble in Cheltenham, where residents of a snooty new Bryant Homes housing estate have objected to their street being named after Brian Jones, what with his drug use and bad end and general hell-raising (presumably they think that it'll have a negative effect on house values, although the attractiveness to Rolling Stones fan of a standard, thrown-up semi on a street named after Jones would suggest a premium effect to us). The developer is now attempting to get the street name changed to glorify John Moore. The local writer, not the musician, although we do hope it'll end up called John Moore Expressway.
