Moriarty Suspected of causing landslide near Bwlch-Y-Cibau

From Baker Street Bugle correspondent Ian Corke:-

Deerstalker member and caricaturist Mark Bardsley was driving home when his car was hit by a rock which was part of a landslide. Although unhurt he was shaken by the incident.

Inspector Lestrade said police suspected that the landslide was set off deliberately and not caused by heavy rain as was first thought.

The motive is thought to be revenge because Mr Bardsley, who had  produced a drawing of Sherlock Holmes for the Deerstalkers of Welshpool, had refused to do one commissioned by the notorious Moriarty.

The drawing of Sherlock Holmes, by Mr Bardsley, is used as the Deerstalker’s trade mark and features in the Welsh translation of The Speckled Band (Y Cylch Brith)

If you would like a drawing or caracature by Mark please visit for further details.
