Those of you who are a little longer in the tooth may be interested to know that ‘Kerby Drill’, the road safety clown, has recently had his autobiography published.
Kerby Drill, otherwise known as Hal Brooks, was very active in road safety during the 1970s, especially in and around London.
The autobiography follows the life of the 88-year-old clown, woodworker and artist who left school at 14. Hal was born in London but later moved to Mumbles in Wales, where he started entertaining in Welsh clubs as a lightning sketch artist.
Hal toured the country as Kerby Drill to promote awareness of road safety and was featured on various television programmes including Blue Peter, Crackerjack, Vision On and BBC Look Stranger.
