I see no ships: Reg Docel, a steeplejack, who cleaned bird droppings from Nelson's Column yesterday on the 188th anniversary of Nelson's victory at Cape Trafalgar and the 150th anniversary of its erection, indulges in some high-level filming. Gel is to be sprayed on to the 170-ft column to stop birds landing and reduce Trafalgar Square's pounds 150,000 annual cleaning bill
