Fairies stop developers’ bulldozers in their tracks

`Villagers who protested that a new housing estate would “harm the fairies” living in their midst have forced a property company to scrap its building plans and start again.

Marcus Salter, head of Genesis Properties, estimates that the small colony of fairies believed to live beneath a rock in St Fillans, Perthshire, has cost him £15,000. [..]

He said: “A neighbour came over shouting, ‘Don’t move that rock. You’ll kill the fairies’.” [..]

“Then we got a series of phone calls, saying we were disturbing the fairies. I thought they were joking. It didn’t go down very well,” Mr Salter said.’
