Cumbria, England - The townies of Cumbria are sick of tourists driving up their living costs and have vowed to fight back. Police are investigating a series of incidents of graffiti vandalism on summer homes owned by people who live elsewhere. The initials ALL have been painted on a number of buildings and is thought to stand for "Affordable Local Living." A similar group called Meibion Glyndwrin burned down vacation homes in Wales in the 1980s.
