TOSSED OFF THE GROVE: You've got to love Beatles Fans. They raised the money for an elaborate plaque to commemorate George Harrison - and not one of your simple blue circles, an expensive thing; they carried out a massive worldwide poll to decide where it should go, picking Arnold Grove in Liverpool's declining Wavertree neighbourhood as an apt site - that being his birth place. They even organised a small ceremony to unveil the new landmark. The only thing they forgot to do, in fact, was ask the person who lives in the house now if they could stick their gaudy memorial on her wall. The outcome? The small bunch of fans got sent away with a flea in their collective ears, and are now thinking of another place to slap their plaque. Maybe they should ask before they go round with drills next time?
