The News has made headlines in the United Kingdom.
A story about two Welsh backpackers who made the front page after a gum tree almost fell on their campervan has featured in national tabloid newspaper The Daily Mirror.
In the story, Shepparton is described as ‘‘an isolated city’’ and described Peter Ashford and Robert Costley as a ‘‘local media sensation’’.
Mr Ashford and Mr Costley had spent nine days camping under a gum tree at Victoria Lake Holiday Park and moved their van the day before the huge gum fell.
In The Mirror article Mr Ashford said: ‘‘We were really surprised to be honest, we didn’t think it was a big deal, but I guess it is for such a small town.
‘‘We had been walking round the town and were in agony because of the heat. Kind of like Kevin and Perry.
‘‘We had spent nine days in that one spot, but due to the heat wave we moved to find shade. It’s been 40°C plus for a good few days.’’
