    Have a guess. I don't think they're in hiding, holed up with Lord Lucan and Robert Maxwell.

    Either the pub's breaking the law, or his lunch was a takeaway (or 'home dining') as it's now called.

    No,they were in North Yorkshire-tier two, so the Scotch-egg hypothesis holds. (I think...)

    Despite Tier 4 restrictions here, a local shop is selling frankincense which I don't think is an 'essential' purchase, unless the customer is dressed like Ali Baba and arrives on a camel. It's burnt like incense in a holder outside the shop and stinks like burning car tyres.

    At least back then they had to make do with a manger as there was no space at the inn. Better than not being actually allowed into the inn.
