THE authors of the article concerning Presiley Lamorna Baxendale, who questions witnesses at the Scott inquiry ('Star inquisitor who giggles before the kill', 3 October), express puzzlement at the origin of her first name.

Perhaps they would like to know thatit is probably a variant spelling of (Mynydd) Preseli, a range of hills in the north of Pembrokeshire; that area has the distinction that some authorities have held it to be the source of the so-called 'blue sarsen' stones at Stonehenge.
