Some bright spark decided it

Some bright spark decided it would be terribly amusing to spill the contents of six litter bins across the cathedral green during the night. This morning, as I walked across the green on my way to the station, one of the cathedral staff stood surveying the scene with a clutch of bin bags in his hand and a look of some resignation on his face. Several times in recent years, the cathedral authorities have threatened to fence off the green and lock it every evening, and if this sort of idiotic behaviour becomes a regular occurence, then that is more likely to happen. And that would be a loss to the city, I think.
