From weird polling stations to VE Day anniversaries

The past few weeks have been hectic and eclectic.

I’ve had the privilege of recounting the extraordinary story of a Hurricane pilot who first use a parachute when he was on fire during the Battle of Britain, pondering the ways in which the Second World War changed the countryside and taking a glance at the most peculiar polling stations in England.

The latter was ‘reversioned’ into both Thai and Chinese for the BBC’s audiences there.

On a more ‘hard news’ front, I’ve been looking at ‘never events’ in hospitals and – linked to the polling stations – the issue of schools no longer wanting to be polling stations.

Now, I’ve noticed how during particularly busy periods of work (which the elections are for all people in news or features), I tend to seek out tranquillity through my photography. Enter the white clematis.
