Today we heard all about the unfortunate woman who got her arm stuck down her toilet bowl.
Poor Gracie Henderson had just moved into her new house near Houston in Texas and needed to unblock her toilet.
But because she didn’t have a plunger, she unwisely decided to carry out the task manually using her hands.
Unfortunately she forgot to remove her watch which got stuck in the bend trapping her in situ.
Somehow she managed to raise the alarm and fire crews arrived to help free her. But their initial efforts to release her also failed so they were left with no choice other than to remove the toilet, carry it – with Gracie still attached – into her back garden where finally flushed with success the porcelain bowl was smashed much to the amusement of Gracie’s new neighbours.
Now that’s how to make an entrance to a new neighbourhood.
In the second hour of today’s show I was pleased to welcome back Margaret Mills who took us back to the village of Great Bardfield on the Essex-Suffolk border. Not looking at artists this time, but the unusual flora unique to this area.

See you again next week,
