Just Say No to AV
Sitting over the New Line Learning Academy today, watching the Prime Minister, David Cameron arrive with his entourage, I could follow his progress through the centre of the town with the two flanking back Range Rovers as they approached the school.
A bit of a panic at first as I managed to knock over one of the poles that supports the line I scoop on the pickup - you can see this in the photo - and I had to land again and reset the whole thing before scrambling over to Maidstone just in time to be overhead on the precise minute. I'm quite sure he noticed his 'No to AV' banner! In fact I was specifically instructed to leave the scene at 15:30 on the dot, in case the engine drowned out his speech.
