The 2 unsavoury characters in the photo above are myself Eddie Hinds and Phil Durtnall, my character was called "Dinky Nine Eighths" whilst Phil's was "The Police Sergeant", you'll be glad to know that I am actually in costume as can be seen from the photo below. I'm afraid that in the photo below padding is not used !!!!
