Comment received from Randolph (Randy) Bamford 03/01/13
What I have not mentioned before, the police at Attercliffe decided to prosecute us for holding up the traffic and causing unnecessary congestion.
The Magistrates after hearing the circumstances and the case as presented by the police they appreciated the local residents enthusiasm in seeing Elsie and Dennis wanted to dismiss the case but decided to avoid upsetting the police by fining us Fifteen Shillings.
