Philip Devonald—town clerk at St. Neots, Cambridgeshire—blames the precariousness of gravestones in his town on stonemasons and their flimsy writing utensils.
"A lot of the falls we've had have been down to the stonemason, and they should be responsible for repairing the problem. Modern workmanship is a lot worse than in times gone by."
He added: "Stonemasons are supposed to put a metal spike into the grave to stop it falling over but sometimes we've found Biro pens being used instead of the metal rods." [Link]
