 Speeding. Remember ch constable Brunson reputed to have overseen a sheep trailer which had a camera inside it.
  Anyway today to saw an orange coloured tourer van parked alongside a road. With just one small window at the rear. Situated to one side. No markings on vehicle. No visible person in it.
  Not a human being in sight. Virtually no vehicles around. Unlimited vision in both directions.
  Where was it parked. You probable guessed. Alongside the Cayley embankment.

I've come to the conclusion that the DVLA as a debt collecting agency is not fit for purpose.   They know from day one if a car is not road taxed and yet I still see cars being driven on the road that haven't been taxed for nine months or more. 
I have written to the DVLA for information on specific points on their enforcement proceedings under the FOI
 Act and they have refused to answer them and I have just written again for some other details and they haven't even acknowledged the application.
They have a duty and responsibility to the public to collect all outstanding debts but unfortunately are failing in it. I just wish that something or someone would sort out this mess

I've been forwarded some information - anonymously - which I'll print here:

"Adam Williams went on holiday after leaving a contract unsigned for £75k with the BBC for 4 days filming.
This would have netted him approximately £50k profit.  On his return it's alleged he demanded the sum be upped to £90k.  The film company reluctantly agreed.

It's then alleged that on the day the film cmpany trucks arrived, he pushed for another £15,000,  at which point the film company had had enough and arranged Penarth Pier within an hour of his demand.

The BBC were also going to give the four affected kiosk owners £1000 each.  They are distraught now."

What have the BBC got to do with it? They aren't financing it, Sounds like a load of nonsense to me  :-X

Seems some people are so greedy they end up with nothing! How stupid, should have taken the original amount and kept it on good terms then get more filmwork in the future! Or as in this case be greedy and get nothing! 🤔

It's not always straightforward. Insurance is one major issue and film companies in general tend to have a flexible relationship with what they say at the outset and what they tend to do once on location.  Would be interesting to know the precise details.

Very interesting re Crogfryn ME.

Just a couple of things, mains water came to Llanrhos in 1879 when the Llandudno supply from Dulyn arrived.

Beyond the well nearer the old Tower is a field known as Gardd y Mynachdy,  which can be translated as the Monastry Garden.  It is assumed to be a link to the old Aberconwy Abbey.

I noted the comments by the Pier Owner, with regards to the cancellation of filming, and I find his explanation bizarre, to say the least. Film companies are adept at transforming locations and then returning them to their proper state without causing any damage whatsoever. Very mysterious..


Adam Williams, managing director of Tir Prince Leisure Group, which owns the pier, described the situation as a “huge shame”.

He said: “It’s really unfortunate. We were really looking forward to it.

“The safety of the pier and the potential damage that could have been caused meant that we couldn’t proceed due to the safety of the pier.

“At no point has this been a monetary issue. In fact, we were willing to lose money just to hold the filming.

“But coming up to the latter stages of last week when we were chasing the contract, it became apparent that some of the things they wanted to do, which weren’t disclosed at the start, would need to have been managed by us or not done at all.

“It’s a huge shame, but my priority is that the pier is safe for future generations.”
