Longbow4u has been causing other problems with these edits as well. In 
Kent the boundaries of Ashford and Shepway districts have been emptied 
of ways. The addition of wikipedia links is continuing apace, sometimes 
in English, sometimes in German.

This changeset seems particularly problematic:

I have sent him/her a message requesting them to repair the damage to 
these boundary relations and have suggested rolling back that whole 
changeset might be a good place to start.
