This is Bexhill. It was very wet in Bexhill. It was so wet that a group of European students who had walked along the seafront were taking refuge in the De La Warr Pavilion and using the dryers in the toilets in a forlorn attempt to return their clothes to wearable. At least they seemed to be enjoying themselves. What with jokes about the weather and then forming an orderly queue they’re well on their way to passing any current or future British citizenship test.
