David Gilmour’s wife Polly Samson saved a drowning man down in Brighton where she lives (minus her bike shed) after pulling him out of the sea. The man apparently did not want to be saved and insisted on dying by trying to get back into the freezing winter sea.
Polly was in a conversation with a friend on Twitter and said to them, “could have done with your manly chest just now as pulled drowning man from sea who didn’t want to be saved.”
Polly Samson added that she had found the man’s “prone body washing to and fro through the shingle” but that after he was rescued and revived, he leapt back into the sea.
The incident was reported in The Daily Telegraph newspaper. The paper also went on to dredge up Polly’s son’s incident where Charlie Gilmour was thrown in prison for crimes against shop windows and other such anarchy!
Well done Polly who was brave to intervene. Many people these days like to keep themselves to themselves so is reassuring that there are still good people about ready to jump in and do a good deed, even if the person wanted to die.
There is more trouble for the Gilmour family in Hove, Sussex as the local council are on their case about a beach hut they have erected on their property in which they store their bicycles.
The authorities are not content with putting their son Charlie Gilmour in prison for 16 months and want more blood, this time threatening to prosecute the family if they do not remove the hut!
The council say that the hut at the £3m property is not fitting with the local area which is a “conservation area”. It has been decided that this offending hut must be gone!
David’s wife – mother of jailed Charlie – appealed against the authorities but lost and now has to remove the bright yellow hut that the council have deemed to be an “eyesore”. It would seem if you look at this hut for too long it will cause eye pain that local ophthalmologists would not be able to cope with!
A Brighton and Hove City Council spokeswoman said in a statement: ‘We have had a complaint from a member of the public and are legally obliged to act.
‘As the planning appeal has failed, we have told the owners that the hut must be gone by October 1.
‘If that doesn’t happen, we would have no option but to issue an enforcement notice.
‘Failure to comply with that means either prosecution or the council may remove the hut and charge the householder.’
Perhaps the colourful beach hut was inspired by the one on Brighton Promenade which Polly Tweeted her own picture of with David Gilmour stood in front of with one of their dogs.
It is madness that this beach hut story is currently the most read news story on the BBC News website!!
Personally I think the governent should be abolished and keep out of our lives and gardens!
