I get to the location. Mr Choos is being restored, the road ahead is deserted except for a lone dog walker, my phone rings. I’m behind you Moff says in a heavy Glaswegian accent, he flashes his headlights and I park next to him at St.Andrew’s Quay. He grabs his costume followed by his young daughter.

Moff McEwan is a big friendly Scott who you wouldn’t mess with which is great news as there are a number of very dodgy individuals hanging around, Moff says don’t worry I’ve clocked them, I don’t, he’s Hull’s Captain America.

Lyla his daughter hates shopping and helps him on with his costume, the zip up jacket is stiff, she fumbles but zips him in.
I take this picture.
