Scilly Featured In ‘Have I Got News For You’ Picture Round

have i got news 2014Scilly has been featured on this weekend’s edition of the BBC1 topical quiz show, Have I Got News For You.

The panellists had to identify the link between four images, one of which was the St Mary’s community bus.

The theme was speeding restrictions and the odd-one out was the image of an autobhan road sign, as the German motorway has no upper speed limit.

Scilly was included because temporary traffic lights will be set up here for the first time in 150 years, later this summer. They’ll be used to control plant movements during the airport works.

Guest host Jeremy Clarkson joked that he’d take it as a challenge to drive at more than 20mph in Scilly after quoting the Council Chairman Amanda Martin.

She said it would be difficult to go faster than that here.

You can view the entire episode on the BBC iPlayer.

    I agree with Cassie about Countryfile . I am sure that there was more useful tourist exposure than HIGNFY
