Annoyingly Google doesn't allow deep linking of images they host, so it's just a broken image.

Thanks, I hadn't realised that, even though I set the file in drive as public it seems to want you to use their image viewer thing instead of just the image.
Which is rubbish.

I know, tried the very same thing myself, and of course, i could see it fine but no one else could, which was very puzzling at first before I worked out they actively blocked deep linking images. Shame, because all of my photos are on Google Photos having to download them, and then upload them to another service is deeply unsatisfying!

Wonder if one of the producers is a Triumph fan? There's been a Stag and a FWD as well I think

I did try referring to such vehicles as 'Project Ajax and derivative shaped motor vehicle' but decided it was a bit of a mouthful. So, back to the point, what's it doing on Eastenders?!
