We've strayed into a zone with a high magical index

Terry Pratchett was on hand to unveil a Discworld inspired housing development. Sadly, inspiration was limited to street names but slow and steady wins the race.

Wincanton was officially twinned in 2002 with the fictional city of Ankh-Morpork from the novels, becoming the first UK town to link with a fictional place. George Wimpey asked local residents to vote for their favourite road name from a shortlist of 14 suggested by Sir Terry.

Sir Terry said: 'I think it's a lovely idea, even though it makes my head spin to think of the books becoming a little closer to reality.And they are nice names, even though I say it myself. Personally, I'd pay good money to live somewhere called Treacle Mine Road.'

Agreed. Though I would prefer to live on Diagon Alley.
