Prepare to be upset, the last choo-choo between the UK and the continent has run its course. Ferry ports now also appear to be closed. In another update all passengers from Harwich to the Hoek of Holland were all hauled off the last Stena Lines ferry and shot on the quayside (okay, okay, maybe not that last bit).

The reason I chose Manchester Victoria was because the outside of station still has glass bunting for destinations over the North Sea. They date from Victorian times, and I always assumed still valid.
 
I believe there used to be, train to Hull, ship over the North Sea, train to Brussels. Long time ago mind....

Oh, right. I was thinking of the more recent Eurostar/Channel Tunnel. I thought a direct service from Manchester to "the Continent" was close to starting but never did. I might have got it all wrong, of course!

Shocking statistics for Stavanger

(Summary from Rogalands Avis 25/12-20


Both national and local papers are reporting that Stavanger's infection stats are currently a real mess.



A new record was made on Christmas eve. 35 new cases diagnosed. In Sandnes a further 10. 14 of the cases in Stavanger have been infected by unknown sources meaning that there are people who are walking around infecting others without knowing it.



Last week there were 18 new cases in Stavanger. This week 66.



The infectious diseases specialist in Stavanger muni says the problem is also that people (diagnosed on Christmas eve) are waiting far too long to get tested. Some of them had been sick for days. That makes tracking very difficult.



Stavanger crisis team will meet today and discuss the situation.

As she cleaned the hospital in April, Karen was scared not for herself, but for her family. She and her husband, Mal, had moved into a caravan in Mal's parents' garden, while his mother was ill with cancer - and they stayed on after she died, to support Mal's 80-year-old father, Malcolm. Mal, a hospital porter, was shielding because he has chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and Malcolm senior was clearly vulnerable because of his age.

So why did you not go home, was his house worth a few quid?
