THE vinda-looney cricket fans from Buntingford have suffered a setback after Australian officials turned their dreams to ashes.

As reported in The Crow last week, Jason Morrin, 38, of Vicarage Road, and nine colleagues ordered an Indian take-away to be delivered to their doorstep Down Under, after watching England's dismal start to the 72nd Ashes series.

Raj Miah, the owner of their favourite Indian restaurant, had been prepared to cook, chill and specially pack lamb dishes such as tikka masala, dhansak and biriani, before flying them out in time for the Third Test.

But their plans were shattered when Australian quarantine officials warned that the food would have to be dumped at the airport upon arrival.

However, determined to feed his hungry customers, Mr Miah, who used to manage a restaurant in Buntingford, set off on the 8,000 mile trip on Tuesday, accompanied by his secret recipes and finest spices - to cook their order fresh when he arrives in Oz.

An employee at Mr Miah's restaurant said: "Raj is on the plane as we speak and he certainly didn't forget his special spices.
