Straying a little further from Cardiff pubs but still on the seasonal binge-drinking path, here’s Kim Willsher in The Observer today on London’s “booze bus”: an ambulance which heads out at weekends solely to deal with the capital’s most ‘tired and emotional’ residents. This takes pressure off 999 teams and helps protect vulnerable women in particular from being robbed or assaulted while they’re comatose.

Typing ‘booze bus Cardiff’ into Google gets you a very different type of vehicle, namely the stretch limos which take rowdy hen parties round the block a bit before dropping them off at Flares. You can even rent an old red Routemaster for the purpose, like the one I spotted off-duty on Corbett Road earlier. Next stop Marble Arch (or the Heath).
