Mystery plot for Archers' 60th

INTRIGUED fans of the UK's longest-running broadcast serial, The Archers, will be on tenterhooks this weekend as the show marks its 60th birthday with a plot twist which will reverberate around Ambridge for some time to come.

Radio bosses are keeping the surprise storyline tightly under wraps, but say it will shock the village "to the core".

The programme's actual birthday is today, but it will celebrate its milestone with a double episode to be aired tomorrow evening.

The surprise turn of events will have a "profound impact" on the fictional rural village, say producers.
