No pulling power

THE unveiling of a plaque commemorating Henley residents who raised £5,000 to buy a Spitfire almost hit a snag when the Mayor couldn't open the curtains

THE unveiling of a plaque commemorating Henley residents who raised £5,000 to buy a Spitfire almost hit a snag when the Mayor couldn't open the curtains.

Martin Akehurst was joined by historian Mike Willoughby at Henley town hall but when the pair pulled on the drawstrings they simply fell away in their hands. The Mayor was forced to manually remove the curtains instead.

Mr Willoughby told him: "This is the first time you and I have been pulling in the same direction!"
