Man Impales Himself On Gates

Published by on Friday, 6 March 2009One Comment

Oh, the blood-thirsty amongst you will like this one. A man – I know nothing more about him than that – managed to impale his leg on the gates of Brighton Station. How did he manage this feat? By trying – and subsequently failing disastrously – to climb the locked gates of the closed station at 3am. Paramedics were on hand providing oxygen to him whilst the fire brigade cut him free. Idiot.

    The Bandstand.
    Having been a Brightonian since 1938, I was pleased to see that the Bandstand on the seafront has been restored and that music once again will be heard. No doubt dech chairs will be provide a sthey used to be on Satirday and sunday lunchtimes/afternoons. One failing I seem to remember that there wre glass shields affixed to the west and southern sides so that music, players, was not blown about and dampened by the prevailing southwest winds.
    onec again thanks to all who have been involved with the restoration.
