Bad news, I couldn’t get to work – Good news, I went fishing on the River Severn

I knew the roads would be busy on Bank Holiday Monday.

It was a nice day and the A5 is the route to the Welsh coast for a substantial population catchment area.

Therefore, I gave myself plenty of time going to work for a press conference interview with Craig Harrison.

However, I didn’t budget for the Shrewsbury steam rally.

When I say traffic wasn’t moving for considerable periods of time, that is not an exaggeration.
