Arsonists struck four times in a single street, forcing the evacuation of guests from a hotel yesterday.

The first fire, reported at 2.50am, caused around £50,000 worth of damage to the hotel, and a parked car. Two further fires were set in porches and a fourth was discovered at an estate agents.

As usual, we awoke on Tuesday morning to the sound of bleating, although it was not the "where is my rugby shirt/history homework?" kind of bleating to which we are so accustomed in the tumultuous hour between 6.30am and 7.30am. No, this was definitely ovine bleating, which was not in itself a surprise – not with the perimeter of a 1,000-acre sheep farm all of 30 yards from the marital bed. But this bleating seemed more insistent than usual, and sure enough, there were half a dozen lambs trapped on our side of the fence in what we grandly call the ha-ha, all going ballistic, in their woolly way. It was what you might call, although not after too much Herefordshire cider, a ha-ha hoo-hah. Indeed, a baa-baa ha-ha hoo-hah.

In Saturday's draw with Fulham, Martinez's men dominated, playing a fluent passing game that would grace the top flight. "Sometimes you don't get the results your performances deserve and today was one of those days," said the Spaniard. More of this and their day will come. Soon.
