Southport was a coastal town in England.
When Clara was nine years old, her father, Dave, took her on a trip to a tower block near Southport with a restaurant at the top. The restaurant had a solid clear glass floor, but Dave assured her it was "safe as houses". Two lads inside the restaurant started jumping up and down on the glass, shouting they were going to break it in "language Dad later said did not suit young ladies". Since then, Clara was not very keen on heights, or indeed glass floors. (PROSE: Normality)
