Little Lucy is off to join her family for a long holiday in Milan.

We arrived in very windy Calais this morning but, as Lucy has travelled down from Dundee, she is used to blustery, wet weather. However, she’s looking forward to spending the winter in milder climes.

“So, what route are we taking,” she asked courier M, chatting to him in the front of the van during a break. “We’re going down the Rhine,” he said. “So how about a riverside walk at lunchtime?”
