    Just watched BBC 6 oclock news item on the situation at Calais. Included an interview with a couple in a motorhome. I think I saw a funster sticker on the top left of the windscreen.

    Anybody want to own up?????????

    Hope they sounded sensible...

    Representing Fun on national television,
    what a responsibility!

    I saw it and got excited as I shouted "look, people in a motorhome our age" so would love to know who they were

    Maybe the sticker was stolen in a gas robbery

    The motorhome interview is about 20 minutes into the News at 6 yesterday evening on the iplayer. No sign of a Fun sticker on the one van shown though.

    Having watched/read several BBC stories as a result of this thread I am struck by the fact that those crying out for respect of their human rights are all prepared to abrogate their responsibilities to act lawfully - i.e. they are perfectly prepared to abuse the human rights of everyone else by breaking any law they wish to get what they want. Interesting.

    Difficult to see with the low resolution iPlayer feed and a small computer screen with poor contrast but at the shot at about 20:27 minutes in there was clearly (on my TV) a yellow sticker on the windscreen. It was to the right and slightly above the passenger's head as he leant forward to speak. Just shows up as a bit of a grey smudge on the iPlayer, which I suspect is more the writing on the sticker, with the yellow being washed out by the background.

    Anybody recognise the couple in the clip?

    I see what you mean now Peter. Don't know the couple.

    I didn't say they were young, just younger than most funsters. They are two entirely different concepts. :D

    As I have said the lower quality iplayer feed and the smaller computer screen with less contrast makes it very difficult to see. I clearly saw a bright yellow sticker on my TV where your arrow points but could not make out the writing on it.
