Whole Street For Sale

Following on from yesterdays little attack on BBC’s reporting, here is another. The BBC reports that an entire street is for sale in Cirencester. (The Daily Mail also covers this.)

Barton Court is sort of behind Gloucester Street, which the photo shows. The right hand side of the photo really are the buildings that are on sale, but they only form a small amount of one side of Gloucester Street. So the headline is really not right! The body of the article is fine though.

The easiest way to see exactly what is going on is to have a look on Google Streetview at the area and then compare it the site map provided by the sellers.

The boxed properties are for sale, but they only form a very small part of one side of the street.

So a better headline would probably be “Set of houses go on sale in Cirencester”.
