Local Man, and Seasonal Hayfever Sufferer, Seaton Carew Today Nearly Became the victim of a potentially day-changing health scare.
Carew, 41 and currently on holiday in Egypt, woke in his hotel bed to the sounds of fake lawn mowers cutting the fake grass that is in abundance in the Sharm-el-Sheik resort.
The imitation grass, which is constantly green despite the lack of rain for the past four hundred years in the region, was said, by some, to have required the pretend trim after the resort manager (nameless as it is unpronounceable) falsely decided it had grown.
Carew, from England, feared that his annual bout of hay fever may spoil one of his days holiday and said, "I awoke in abject terror of itchy eyes and streaming nose."
It wasn't until he was assured that no real grass could be so green in such searing temperatures that the hapless holidaymaker relaxed and enjoyed another day by the pool.
The grass cutting exercise was completed in secret and everyone went home happy.
A spokesman for the "Save the Kamel Trust" had no explanation to offer.
