MANY English families told by a Welsh terrorist group to leave their homes by today or face being burnt out are ignoring the threat, writes Andrew Gliniecki.

The Sons of Glendower, a militant Welsh nationalist organisation, last year sent letters to English families living in Wales accusing them of being 'colonialist' and 'racist'.

The group threatened to firebomb their targets' homes unless they moved by today - St David's Day.

Professor Matthew Seaman, 84, who lives in Nefyn, on the Lleyn Peninsula, said yesterday: 'I'm staying put.' Professor Seaman, whose family has been connected with the area for 60 years, was a founder of the local sailing club and has been involved in projects to save local heritage. He said three other families on the hit-list in his area were also staying put.
