I can't tell you how excited we are at that news.

No, literally, I cannot tell you.

Our local rag is currently moaning about free car parking.

The highlight of that report, for me, was:
Quote
Helen Hayward, 60, of Tintern, said she prefers to travel to Cribbs Causeway in Bristol where parking is free

So, lets get this straight; Ms Hayward would rather pay £6 to cross the Severn Bridge and get free parking, than pay £1 for three hours parking?  :facepalm:

He's actually a male version of the wailing Mariah Carey, who has mastered one song but does everything else in the same OTT style.  And he has the inevitable sob story.

If you had been shopping in Newport you'd probably want to be paid to go there again.  ;D

If I had been shopping in Newport I'd cross the bridge for free on my way home. But then I do anyway. Crossed that bridge many times but never paid.  :D

Live by-the-minute coverage;

I'm still none the wiser.  But who is that with him?  Looks like a slightly more feminine Michael Jackson (if such a thing were possible)...

Not sure, but the Isle of Man is easy to see from there.

It's...er...pretty close.  Is it normally foggy, or something?

I've got a feeling that isn't Anglesey, but the Isle of Man. It looks too hilly to be Anglesey.

I can't claim much expertise here, never having been to Walney Island, but I did photograph Anglesey a few years ago from St. Bees.

Edit: cross post with COG.



That's the Isle of Man taken at the start of our Coast to Coast 4 years ago.

Anglesey is so close to the mainland that it would be indistingushable from that distance.



The island to the left is the Calf of Man, I'm pretty sure.

It's all happening in Warwick...

Wow, that's almost as exciting as the teatowel on fire reported in the York Press a couple of years ago.

(The teatowel was left on a hob and caught fire. The owner extinguished it by putting it in the sink before the Brigade arrived. The teatowel was slightly damaged)

The original inspiration for this, either FHM or Loaded (I forget which) once had a story in which an entire kettle burnt to the ground.
