O’Shea’s weekend in Dublin.



Sheila Campbell, Banks Hoggins’ creative secretary, had booked the

flights and everyone was to meet at Heathrow to catch their planes. The

fire meant this was no longer possible because all domestic and European

flights were cancelled.



Campbell managed to rebook all the flights to Dublin from City airport

and was feeling very proud of herself - until Cityjet called to say that

none of the flights could depart due to technical problems.



She finally managed to book everyone on other flights - apart from a

motley crew of five who were taken by bus to Stanstead to catch

rescheduled flights.



Tootling down the motorway they noticed a figure on the hard

shoulder.



It was the creative director, Chris O’Shea, who had opted to drive to

the airport and had broken down on the way. The kindly lot took him on

board and finally got to Dublin. Phew.
