    "car backs in to water" - the car is a Triumph 2000.

    The shots list says that you have a brochure on file about this caravan. Does the brochure say it's called the "Creighton Gull"?

    Ah...

    The shot descriptions for our clips often say that we have things "on file".

    What that unfortunately means is that, if it hasn't been lost between the time the description was written (possibly decades ago) and now, then it is stored in a warehouse somewhere that none of us can get to very easily!

    Do you think the caravan is a Creighton Gull? We'll have to go on your instinct.

    I'm as sure as I can be that it's a Creighton Gull, just a very small element of doubt!
