Deeply in thought about his impending interclub match, Clifton King unfortunately forgot about that 'handbrake thing' recently ...

Members watched the car 'leave', initially presuming that Clifton had been dropped off. That is until it continued off on to the grass bank and straight in to the water!

It's not clear whether this unfortunate incident 'drove' Clifton on to a good performance. Anyway.. best we park it there.
