In Tropical YorkshireIt is not normally my experience up here that it is too hot for comfort, but we are almost there.
The trip up involved a side trip to Heathrow, where a significant security presence was visible (including arrests of three people, now released). But cars driving in to the terminals were under significant scrutiny and we saw some being searched.
Everyone is a little more attentive now - central Birmingham was evacuated on the weekend for a night.
And we nearly leapt out of our seats when a car backfired last night near the hotel.
