v1 is the Comptessa looking chilled and relaxed

v2 are her two daughters Pat & Ina

v3 is a friend also called Pat. You've got to hand it to her, she used to be a copper in the Met Police but got brassed off with it all so she took a job as an actress and was last seen doing the 'pocket tap' adverts for Asda.

You may recognize the statues, all draped around a fountain in Butler's Wharf, just off the South end of Tower Bridge in London. The water wasn't running at this time of the morning. In marked contrast to the water running from the sky at the moment!!

Don't recognize them though BlushBlush, because I don't live in London.

Seriously good. I remember visiting this fountain years ago - it's quite bizarre, these beautiful nymphs emerging from the water into an ugly, unloved modern precinct. You can see their puzzlement - 'Did we take a wrong turning somewhere?'
