Watch the background

This story covers a very serious issue, and I'm glad, of course, that it has been resolved in a sensible and pragmatic way following the intervention of our local Tory AM.

If I can draw a lighter note out of the issue, however, it illustrates how careful all politicians need to be to check what's behind us when we have our picture taken. In this case, the key line in the report is "Cars should now park on the road-side of the pavement, leaving a safe walkway between the vehicles and the buildings." Well, yes, and the picture clearly shows the white line concerned. It also, however, shows a car behind the people, parked very carefully and precisely - on the wrong side of the line. D'oh!
