Hair-brained plan to bring Magnum back

Magnum P.I. star Tom Selleck is more likely to be seen on the beaches of Hawaii than the canals of Wiltshire, though visitors this weekend may think otherwise, thanks to a scheme by a group of council workers.
Eight Wiltshire Council employees will tackle the Dash for the ‘tache on Saturday, when they will walk 32 miles from Bradford on Avon to Marlborough, along the Kennet and Avon Canal dressed as the moustachioed 80s TV star.
The challenge was the brainchild of John Vooght, who lost his mother to cancer last month and recruited seven co-workers from Chippenham’s Olympiad Leisure Centre to join him.
Colleague Rachel Farr said: “Our initial target was £500, but we have already passed £1,000, and it’s still going strong.”
