Barton Grange in the news following jet fuel tank discovery


Barton Grange made headline news this week after a Tornado fighter jet fuel tank was reportedly found in the garden centre’s car park.


According to the BBC News website, the component, which was assessed by the military to be more than 30 years old, was found at Barton Grange on 22 December.


The BBC reported the tank was being temporarily stored at the site. It is expected to be removed next week.


GTN Xtra was unable to get the inside story on the discovery. But we wondered if it was a secret weapon to be used in the annual battle between the Pansies (garden centres) and Cabbages (suppliers) at the GCA Conference later this month.
