Six years have passed. Jo and Bill are still at their heavily fortified commune with their friends,Susan and their own son David but the triffids' attacks are increasing,despite an electric fence. Jack Coker arrives by helicopter from the Isle of Wight,where triffids have been exterminated and invites Bill and his group to join him there. However next day they are visited by a para-military group calling itself the Emergency Council for the South East,who want to requisition the compound and move in more people. That night Bill gets all the visitors drunk and,after they have passed out,escapes with his friends and family to head for the Isle of Wight. Written by don @ minifie-1
