You beat me to it Oldjim as I'd just copied the link  Smiley
Bet they thought they'd get away with it but hadn't allowed for the tenacity of the parking enforcers.

Probably more inconvenient to those who were actually tasked with the job of getting them released, as you can bet on it that it wasn't the owners. Other modes of transport being rapidly found no doubt.
I wonder how long they stayed clamped for...
PS. Harrods used to run their own fleet of RR's for "important customers" do they still do that?
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
