Hi, I've had to alter the amends you've made again on the Stafford Heginbotham page, please don't just dump lots of text in the header and you must put citations with the information you place. (RedJulianG40 (talk) 14:36, 21 April 2015 (UTC))

Please cite the Wikipedia policy or guidance for your assertions about what is in the lede, and how info there and in the main body is referenced. My text would have to be rubbish for it to be dumped in the lede. I think my edit, which you have taken it upon yourself to remove without discussion on the talk page, gives the main reason for subjects notability. Namely, he is not notable merely for claiming insurance on the fire at the stand that bunt down killing 56 people, but the that prior to this occurrence he was widely reputed among denizens of Bradford to be a serial arsonist and insurance fraudster according to newspaper articles (and a published book). This isn't a BLP, but I am open to changing the wording to make clear where the allegations are coming from by phrasing it as "according to author Martin Fletcher" where this is appropriate. Also I have no problem with having refs for each sentence, rather that the ref covering a few preceding sentences. Finally, you should say point by point what is in deleted text, but not in the cited sources; and please discuss in the proper place, which is the talk page for the article, before you delete any more paragraphs. _Overagainst (talk) 16:05, 21 April 2015 (UTC)
