The Harrogate Briefing - Tue, April 17

editorial image

STOLEN jewellery, a stolen hot air balloon and a video about a flat, in our fair-to-middling guide to the day in Harrogate.

Plus: a white tiger, conference nostalgia, diesel locomotive nostalgia, a teen tech wizard and a bit where we impertinently refer you to as “Grandad”. Yes, you. Grandad.

Sorry today’s Briefing is a bit late, we’ve been busy.

THINGS WE FOUND ON THE INTERNET

We wrote about this teen tech wizard from Harrogate here and now the Guardian’s at it too.

“From 1978 to 1981 they were gradually relegated to semi-fast or newspaper–parcel–sleeper services along the ECML (destinations including Cleethorpes, Harrogate...” – it says “Harrogate”! Quick, put it in the Briefing, it was supposed to be online 20 minutes ago! A thing about diesel locomotives.

Exhibition skidaddles to Wetherby. Bye now.

A video about converting a Harrogate basement into a flat. Quite a white-tiger-y vibe going on here.
