A room called Barry

Companies often give names to their meeting rooms – for example, the names of iconic cities, such as Paris, New York or LA. You soon learn that a meeting in Milan doesn't guarantee great coffee.

An energy company I'm working with has a meeting room called Barry. Their meeting rooms aren't named after famous gas fitters, as you might suppose, but power stations.

It's just unfortunate for such a safety-critical industry that one of them is Killingholme.
