I'm now at home recovering.
By a strange twist of fate, around 3am the wind changed and my anti Bernie Clifton banner blew back within grabbing distance.
By this time I'd given up all hope of rescue aa the emergency services were obviously treating my ever desperate phone calls as a hoax.
I managed to fashion the banner into an unorthodox hang glider and set sail to the high winds which took me about 500 ft above the Bear Pit and onwards, via Merseyway towards Portwood where after an uncomfortable landing on the roundabout I managed to stagger home.
All this would have made great publicity if only it hadn't been dark.
