Trip down memory lane.
A grand welcome ‘a l’anglaise awaited insolvency experts who came to the sixth world congress of INSOL International to be greeted by a real taste of British culture – and weather.
Delegates arrived in torrential rain to be met by sodden Morris dancers hopping away in the downpour.
