Wimbledon Visitors Use Graveyard As Car Park

Seems that fans travelling to watch the action at Wimbledon are being allowed to park their cars on the graves of British tennis players' careers deceased folk at a nearby cemetery. St Mary's Church in Wimbledon Village regularly charges punters £20 a day during the Championships to stick their motor on the graves of people whose descendants cannot be traced, but this year a few errors meant that cars were accidentally parked in "inappropriate" locations. The practice has now been stopped, which is a blow for the three charities benefiting from the munificent church's car charge scheme, but a blessing for the grieving family surprised to find a Volvo parked on top of Great Uncle Victor's headstone.
