@markg and @zardoz I'm camping in France next to some people from Preston. What's a good thing to say to people from Preston?

This is a road sign which has appeared on the corner of the crescent in question. Every time I drove past it, I was sure something was off.

This is the sign on the other side of the crescent. Of course, it should only have one L.

So these signs must be quite far apart for no one to have noticed when it was being installed, right?

When we visited my mother last I noticed they’d put a new road sign up about 2m from her front door and spelled it wrong, but she hadn’t noticed.

What feels like about 10 military jets just flew towards Exeter from Plymouth!

I was inside for the first few, and thought "once you've heard it, you've probably missed it" But the noises just kept coming, I went outside, and managed to catch 2 of them in the distance, before getting my camera out and recording the last one.

They were not going super fast, but they were quite low.

There was an F-15 rumbling over my house a few hours ago, according to flightradar24. Cloud too low to see it though.

I take it that that's not usual on your street. We get them every week on our estate, around 5 days out of 7, often after midnight. Even if they're quite distant one of the dogs will be barking as he really hates them.

It happens from time to time, but not usually after midnight in the middle of September. I think from where they were coming from, it was the family that have 4 or 5 off-roaders in various states of repair in their drive/parked up on the road.

I don't think any of them are abandoned, I don't know if they buy them knackered and then do them up, but apart from two or three they seem to change quite frequently. I think they are just really into off roading and doing up cars. (and possibly letting off late night fireworks once in a blue moon)
