What were you doing when you heard the news that Elizabeth II had died? I was fishing

Today’s angling plan was to have a session up to dark on a pool.

I loaded the car and made my way to the venue in question, where I caught a few small roach on legered sweetcorn.

From lunchtime today, I was aware of the situation regarding the Queen.

You know that a situation is serious when the family members are summoned.

I can recall my own father-in-law being in hospital, when my wife, her mom and I went in response to a message that he was dying.
