A-Z blunder sees River Thames running through Stourport

Kidderminster Shuttle: The clue's in the name: Stourport-on-Severn on the banks of the River Thames. The clue's in the name: Stourport-on-Severn on the banks of the River Thames.

AN eagle-eyed Shuttle reader has spotted that Stourport-on-Severn has become Stourport-on- Thames in the latest edition of an A-Z map .

Richard Pitman, of Ombersley, spotted that the River Thames was running through Stourport in a Redditch and Kidderminster edition of the map, produced by Street Ezee town plans .

The same blunder can be seen in the latest edition of the Redditch and Kidderminster Street A-Z Atlas by the Geographers’ A-Z Map Company .

Mr Pitman, formerly of Stourport, said: “When I saw the River Severn was the River Thames, it was incredible.

"I have been a right old grump about the lack of investment – we never got a ring road.

"Just imagine the investment we would have if this was the case .”

A spokeswoman for Geographers’ A-Z Map Company said: “Corrective work has been carried out for the next edition.”

You obviously care Kunuty, otherwise you wouldn't be interupting your Jeremy Kyle viewing to both read, and then comment on the article.

I'll give you twenty minutes to try and work out the irony, then I'll come back and read your petulant, error-ridden response.

While on my my high horse - correct me if I'm wrong, but should it not read 'formerly' rather than 'formally'? Two completely different things.
