Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

"We're very pleased to have proved that Mynydd Graig Goch is a mountain and not a hill. The Ordnance Survey has agreed to update its maps on the internet straight away."

Paper maps will be corrected on the next print run, in a real-life rerun of the 1995 film The Englishman Who Went Up A Hill But Came Down A Mountain. Set in 1917 and starring Hugh Grant as a government cartographer, the comedy describes how Welsh villagers ingeniously challenge a proposed downgrading of their local landmark from a mountain to a hill.
