No Fanny for street.

PLANS to name a street Fanny Close in honour of Admiral Nelson's wife have been sunk, because of its other, ruder meaning.

Developer JT Mossman wanted to pay the tribute for the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar.

The tiny village has strong links with Nelson as his best friend Alexander Davison lived there.

One resident said: "It appears innocent on the face of it but we couldn't get away with calling a road Fanny Close. Who would want to live there?"

The new road, in Swarland, Northumberland, will now be called Admiral Close instead.
