Lesley's Fuel is Brand X. Motorists who buy petrol at pretty Lesley Fers'

Lesley's Fuel is Brand X. Motorists who buy petrol at pretty Lesley Fers pump get an unusual extra - a high octane kiss to zoom them on their way. Drivers who don't want to be kissed can have a beer instead. "The older ones usually go for the kiss, "Lesley said, "but quite a few of the younger ones prefer the wallop. I don't know why." Lesley, 19, is one of four bikini-clad girls employed at a filling station in Portsmouth, Hampshire. But the local vicar doesn't approve. As motorists queued for a gallon and a smacker, Canon Jeffrey Maples said: "It's degrading. A kiss is a genuine expression of love and affection. When distributed freely as a publicity gimmick it loses its meaning." And the fact that the garage is offering cut-price contraceptives as well has upset quite a few of the more conservative-minded of the local populace. June 1972 P018788

Jeff Lynne on his wedding day, 11th April 1972.
Jeff Lynne, (aged 24) singer and songwriter with the Birmingham group, The Move, marries Miss Rosemary Adams (aged 19 and a trainee teacher), at Holy Trinity Church, Link Top, Malvern, Worcestershire. Both bride and groom are mad Birmingham City fans and Rosemary came out of the church waving a rattle with the word blues on it, showing her support for Birmingham City.
Some of the Birmingham City squad took time off from training to enjoy the wedding.
Pictured are Jeff Lynne and his bride, Rosemary Adams.
The happy couple postponed their honeymoon so that they can watch Birmingham City play Leeds United at Hillsborough on Saturday in the FA Cup semi final. Sadly Birmingham City lost that match 3-0 and Leeds went on to beat Arsenal in the final by one goal to nil.
Jeff Lynne formed the Electric Light Orchestra (known as ELO) in 1970, taking over sole leadership in 1972, after Roy Wood left. He enjoyed hit songs such as Mr Blue Sky, Wild West Hero, Turn to Stone and Don't Bring Me Down. In the 1980s, Jeff Lynne found further success as a producer and helped form the supergroup The Traveling Wilburys with George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison and Tom Petty. They enjoyed hits such as Handle With Care and End of the Line. He was also a member of The Move in the 1960s.
