The delay which almost caused us to miss our connection was caused by a crane dropping an object on to the railway overhead supply cable, therefore causing trains to be diverted to other routes.

You may be asking yourselves why didn't we do the same as the Frenchman- well, Mike was asleep and by the time he woke it was too dark to do it safely, especially as there is a 6" drop off the edge of the Tarmac.
