Dozens of new sites have appeared in the heatwave, prompting this excited response by The Searcher detecting magazine: “Time to dust off that drone!” But by their nature, newly discovered sites are yet to be scheduled so when The Searcher encourages readers to detect on them surely it is voicing a new variant of the oikish mantra “hurry, it might be damaging, but for now it’s legal, innit!”

Maybe that’s all that can be expected of The Searcher but shouldn’t Historic England et al be shocked at this protection gap? And shouldn’t PAS (which has an article every month in The Searcher despite the fact the front of the magazine carries a clarion call for oikism) now consider whether it has been persistent enough in stressing to the Government that the current laissez faire detecting law all too often means laissez faire la destruction?

., given its readership.
