A reader writes: “I just wondered whether you were aware that the drummer of Alt J (Thom Green) who won the Mercury Prize last night was actually from Harrogate?

“He was a student at St Aidans High School and lived in Harrogate until joining Leeds Uni in 2007.

“ With this in mind it makes reading this http://www.harrogateadvertiser.co.uk/lifestyle/harrogate-district/forget-mercury-prize-this-is-a-real-alternative-1-5087600 article (and especially the title) very strange!”

Many thanks to reader Fiona McDermott for getting in touch and setting us straight.

Does anyone else have an ono on ALt-J’s Harrogate links?
