There are gypsies on the helipad

I love it when life throws up odd surprises, this morning when we arrived for work we found our helipad (in the centre of this satellite photo) had been colonised by travellers because it give me the once in a lifetime opportunity to use the title of this post!

I believe that the helipad was originally car parking, when this site was a nylon factory, and it has a wide range of interesting uses, not only does the occasional helicopter land on it but also a motorbike stunt guy practices there and the police teach each other how to drive on it.

The gypsies would have got more than they'd bargained for if a helipcopter had come in, but we're more dissapointed that it was the police driving yesterday, I'd've loved to see the faces all round if the travellers had woken to find themselves surrounded by the police driving school .

Don't get me wrong, I'm not against travelling people, I'm just a fan of serendipity.
