    Hi Tracy, Ahh, could be that then. I didn't actually see anyone wiping the lens, but maybe you can't in time-lapse, or maybe they squirted it. It looks difficult to access by hand. Thanks for the info!

    Phil, I saw a facebook post (can't remember where) that they were making sure the camera was kept clean so people could view the funeral cars passing. Maybe that was the reason?

    Also interesting how the camera cleared instantly during 00:47 on the playback of 17th Nov. when there appeared to be no rain. I'm thinking it's clean rainwater condensation on the lens sometimes, rather than salt. That would clear as the temperature or wind changes. I noticed as I was watching due to KeithYork's message below. Thanks Keith.

    Very busy tonight up around Bispham. Seems a great many are grabbing this sudden "last chance" to catch the illuminations. All cafes, restaurants and takeaways are busy... as are the hairdressing salons. To think in 48 hours time, all will be silent and dark again. Utterly upsetting and depressing.

    Thanks MarkS. I also heard on TV tonight that the Tower will remain lit, and all the illuminations will be on again if restrictions are lifted 'sufficiently' in December. They will then be on until 3rd Jan 2021. That's also what it says on the visitblackpool website.

    Make the most of the illuminations folks, they are being switched off at midnight on the 4th.

    Skyline is going from bad to worse !!! Please don't ruin the few pleasures around at the moment. Put the sponser back to the right hand side NOT on the view.
