Adult winner

Norma-Ann Coleman

Nicholas Gamp had 700 umbrellas hanging like bats from rails in his flat. They'd all passed gale simulation tests for robustness and reliability.

Nicholas lived for umbrellas and ironically died for one. A dramatic wind gust wheeched Nicholas heavenwards; the humungous golf umbrella his first and last test failure.
