Just a personal observation, and not that of BBP

Ramming a camera in Gina's face all day whilst she pays her respects to her father, surely in itself is disrespectful ?

Makes a circus of whole thing surely ?

For all and any activity organised by the Speed Record Club which GIna kindly agreed to attend, there had been consultation regarding press, media and cameras and I hope the Club was seen to have met her wishes. In any case we had some 'very well proportioned' club members available had there been any gross intrusion.

The memorial saw unprecedented numbers and, without barriers, the VIP party and K7 members and indeed the Clergy were hemmed into a very small space. The newly fitted refurbished seating took the loading, when there was 'standing room' only.

Sorry I'm not the scooter guy lol
I was in the cafe across the road.
Trying my best not to be disrespectful, I bumped into the vicar in the cafe, does anyone else think the has a resemblance to Albert Steptoe??
Cheers
