Fight Against Maturity

Give that GPS a sharp rap, Sargeant.


A tiny Shropshire village is being invaded by Army tanks – because of a sat nav blunder.

Soldiers looking for barracks at Donnington, near Telford, are being sent to a picturesque hamlet with the same name 15 miles away.

Residents of little Donnington say as many as seven tanks sometimes line up on a tiny lane in the hamlet, and it can happen as often as seven times a week.


Hard to mistake Donnington for an army base…there are only six houses there according to one local.
