Angel was taken aback to see a rough sleeper inside his sleeping bag in the doorway of Lincolnshire Co-op’s travel branch in Spalding over the Bank Holiday weekend.

• Angel thinks Pokemon GO is a good thing – so long as people aren’t walking into busy roads and off cliffs because they are so absorbed in their mobile phones, of course. Angel was interested to see a whole family on the hunt for erm... virtual critters in the churchyard of Spalding’s parish church. Imagine: a whole family enjoying doing something together, out walking instead of crashing in front of the TV and exploring their town!

• Just have a little ‘patience’, no I’m not a massive Take That fan...but I wish some drivers were.

Just the other day when I was driving into Spalding from Donington way – and there was a a rather wide farm-related vehicle (I forget whether it was a tractor and trailer or combine harvester – I’ve seen so many recently they are all paling into one), driving slowly, as you’d expect, and a handful of cars behind.

The car immediately behind said farm vehicle decided they just couldn’t wait for a wider stretch to get past so mounted the footpath on the other side of the road to get by.

I just ‘pray’ the driver doesn’t do anything like it again...

• However, Angel would like to remind farmers to check their load when on the road. I was behind a tractor and trailer which was stacked rather high with hay bales and as it went along a busy main road it managed to hit plenty of the overhanging trees, causing some debris to fly into the path of traffic behind. But then maybe Highways should be contacted to trim back the growth?

• We really need to do something about our drains don’t we? We live in Briatin, so rain should be expected, surely? I know we had a lot over the weekend but I was horrified to see how badly affected some were.
