The 'Mumbling Armpit' Ralph Gilbey with 'Oscar Ripple' Howard Spinks? Reporting an accident involving Ringo Starr's Mercedes May 1980
Ringo Starr with then Girl Friend Barbara Bach (Star of 007's
The Spy Who Loved, me amongst others) were driving on the A3 when the car
went out of control at the Robin Hood Roundabout. It somersaulted a number of times before coming to rest on the London bound carriageway.
Ringo later said this accident changed his live and was the
reason why he proposed to Barbara.
The car was crushed and today serves as a coffee table in the couple's Ascot home.
