Lane closure on Areley Common 2

The lane closure had vanished by the afternoon, which is annoying as that's when I got the return call from Worcester Highways regarding it. Turns out they had no knowledge of it at all. Yep, someone just turned up and cordoned off a section of the public highway without any permission.

Despite what I said I couldn't 100% identify them as Severn Trent Water so they'll be looking at what was dug up and trying to trace it back to whoever would be working on it. Why the bother isn't this as petty as I thought it seemed? Well what they did was illegal and if you let one group get away with it what's to stop them doing it again; say next Saturday when the carnival tries to roll through town?
