Ladders and a yellow warning sign are set up in Wilko's for six months. A workman appears to be adjusting something in the void space between the tiles and the ceiling. The ladder and workman occasionally wobble precariously. On closer inspection, there is no top half to the workman. The innards of the building and the mechanism wobbling the ladder can be seen through the removed ceiling tile.
