Oh dear

Bungling council bosses in Dover posted a beautiful picture of the iconic White Cliffs on their site.

The only problem was it was the wrong cliffs!

Dover Town Council has now been forced to admit the cliffs pictured on its website weren’t Dover’s.

You really couldn’t make it up. Loving the comments below the story, by the way.

Here’s how I would go about researching a suitable photo for this project. Go to Flickr.com, type “white cliffs of dover” in the search field, find a photo that fits the bill and contact the photographer about whether it can be used or not. Or do the same with almost any stock photography web site.

What sort of amateurs did Dover Town Council engage for their web site?
