A DEL OF A FIGHT.

Byline: JAMES TAIT

TOFFEE-NOSED residents are well on the way to seeing the back of Del Boy.

Householders in Trotter Haugh, in Edinburgh's posh Morningside, are mortified by gags about the Only Fools and Horses TV sitcom character.

They also claim "haugh", the Scots word for a riverside meadow, is hard to pronounce.

Yesterday city planning chiefs agreed to advertise a proposed name change for the terrace of 10 modern houses to Glenisla Terrace and objectors have 28 days to air their views.

Residents of nearby Glenisla Gardens say it will be confusing.

And planning boss Bob Cairns thinks the change could spark a trend to "anglicise" names.

He said: "The Scottish connection is very important. I am concerned it might create a precedent."
