Controversial comic author Tim Moore will be ruffling the feathers of Forth residents again shortly as the book they felt insulted their home is reissued in paperback.

Locals were up in arms when it first appeared, in February last year.

London-based Tim (48) described Forth as “a town laid out without love and built without care”, and the high street as “a long, grey straggle of grimness, all grubby second-hand car dealerships and takeways”.
