I have raced against him in a couple of BHPC criteriums. If they were using the Glasgow city centre course today, he might not be as comfortable/ fast through tight corners as he'd like to be.

She took photos of flooding on Queens Drive twice in July 2010 showing cars stuck in water.

Mr Currie is one of only five people who has eaten an entire Pepper X.

"I was feeling the heat for three and a half hours. Then the cramps came," Mr Currie told the Associated Press.

"Those cramps are horrible. I was laid out flat on a marble wall for approximately an hour in the rain, groaning in pain."

There's a Sunk Island - just East of Hull, as it happens, on the way out to Spurn - which is neither an Island, nor Sunk.

But the wrong combination of high tide and high wind may well make it one or the other...
