It was Bob49.

He had necked a few Jamesons behind his net curtains, had a barney with the Mrs who had just come in from a hard day at the Town Hall and he decided he would try the Surf Reef for himself while it was dark and nobody could see.

Next week, I reckon they will find him climbing over the Tardis at 3am, trying to get back to the time when Bournemouth had a bus station in the town centre.
