A Derby road has opened named after computer game action hero Lara Croft. The road was given its name after a public vote backed the gun-toting adventurer, who was designed by a software firm in the city.

i doubt anyone stupid would vandalise that sign. least they want to pay a lot of money to clean it up

and how is it tacky. care to explain

Hurray! I'm glad to see Lara Croft getting some more recognition, and I'm especially glad to see her original creators getting some recognition for her, too. :D

It would have been far more classy to choose something representative of Tomb Raider than blatantly naming it 'Lara Croft Way' - this is of course all my opinion. I would have preffered something subtle like, I dont know, even just 'Croft Way' *shrug*

As for the vandalism, what shiny happy planet do you live on?

?????????? What are you on about. Seriously

Why on earth did you edit your post hours after you posted it?

I think its fairly obvious what I was saying. Vandalism happens all the time. Teenage thugs dont look at things and think 'oh, thats too pretty' or 'that's too cultural' to destroy it. They take pleasure in ruining things, so its only a matter of time really.
