    Talk English boy - surely you mean the fire covered an area almost seven and a half acres in size!

    It is English now - it is metric measure. Farmers still use the Imperial system converting to Metric for official purposes when required.

    Never mind the hectare/acre argument: doesn't it have something to do with adopting Greenwich Mean Time or something.

    Grange Road is not in Formby. It is on Altcar Training Camp. It is Hightown.
