Da Vinci Code fails attract visitors to Rosslyn chapel

Following an almost universal panning by Hollywood film critics, The Da Vinci Code movie may have received the most telling condemnation of its quality so far. Rosslyn Chapel has reported that the hordes of visitors expected after the film's release have failed to show up.
