Cruise control

Hollywood superstar Tom Cruise’s latest blockbuster movie scuppered the plans of Leighton Buzzard’s walking group.

The original idea was for the group to walk around a large disused quarry in the neighbouring village of Heath and Reach. But it’s where Tom Cruise was filming scenes for Mission: Impossible 7 at the same time, and the area was fenced off to the public and patrolled by security men.

Walk leader Fran Mallord has had to come up with a Plan B which is a walk along the Grand Union canal and around the Tiddenfoot country park – the site of a former sandpit.
