'Taxi Has Bumpy Ride' (excerpted from the West Bean Times)

Local citizens, hired and then dismissed by Segovia Television's production company as extras for the filming of 'Taxi to Kensington,' chartered a bus to Upper Puckering to demand their chance at stardom.  Meeting with an unsympathetic film crew, the group grew surly.  Unkind words were exchanged on both sides before a hail of over-ripe tomatoes were loosed on the crew, the set, and the crowd of onlookers.  

Puckering Village Elder Arthur 'Red' Covers, expected to support this labour action, was unfortunately away from the village, and unable to arbitrate the dispute. Several citizens of both West Bean and East Imbiben spent the night in the local nick before being released pending further action.
