    Smugglers Way won't take vans in the normal part. You would get away with a large car though.

    They've got a lovely Thatchers cider in a box. 4.9%. Bit warm though- I told them to put it in the fridge.

    They've got two others too but one of them is some poncey berry flavoured one.

    There's a young lad lying on the ground outside superdrug with blood pouring out of his neck. Police herre, no ambulance yet. Doesn't look good.

    Ambulance arrived and he looks to be in good hands now. He was breathing and conscious, but motionless. Hope he's ok. Looked about 18. Not sure whether it was a stabbing (as I first thought) or possibly he'd been hit by a car which didn't stop. He was lying right by the side of the road and they'd put a neck brace on, indicating suspected neck/spinal injury. Massive crowd had gathered.

    I'm a bit shitted up after seeing that, I need a drink.

    There was a lady on the street saying her shop had caught everything on CCTV, so hopefully they'll be able to find out what happened.

    I could have got a photo but I didn't think it was appropriate.

    Wondered what had happened there when I saw it all taped off. :(

    I was wondering why it was taped off. I don't know if a photo is inappropriate if it could help (directly after whatever occurred). Hope he's ok. Maybe it was another ninja bus whacking

    Unrelated, but does anyone know where to sell a watch? I got a new battery for it from Mr. Watch Guy Whats His Face even. Only place I could find was across from San Marino, locally, and I doubt they'll give me anything much. I just don't want it and need the extra cash, but it's nice enough

    Further unrelated: why must the creepy ice cream van blast its music at full volume? The wind carries, sir, and you give me goosebumps.

    Never heard of any ninja bus whacking on that side of the road. Outside The Beehive seems to be the most dangerous place for that

    There's a new place in Streatham. It's not called Cash Converters but I can't remember the name, and I'm afraid I didn't take much notice of what they were selling other than games consoles, mobile phones and cameras

    One of the local shopkeepers didn't witness the attack, but heard from by-standers that a group of youths just ran up and whacked him around the head with a wooden baton. Little bastards. She wondered if it might be a gang initiation thing. I hope they got every one of them on CCTV.

    boohoo No.

    I had a bit of a fright the other day when car whacked into another car pushing it up onto the pavement missing me and the buggie by about 3 metre. Thank god we weren't walking any slower.

    :(

    I hope he is okay. I have been in the brace before as a 'precaution' only so hopefully it is not too bad. Still horrid though, what a shame for a kid :(

    Turned out that vans were only allowed in till 1pm :mad: so we got sent to the Battersea one. Was a bit of a faff but job done.

    Where to get a BBQ in Brixton? Not wanting to spend much but don't want a 'wobbly' one.

    Shit, I must have just missed this. Got on the 322 on Atlantic Rd at about 3.20. Hope he's alright.

    I just got one from Argos mate! They've got a sale on until Tuesday, check their website.

    Also, the shop next door to the cage off-licence near you has been selling barbeques - those massive drum bbqs, but they have some smaller ones too.
     
  29. Badgers

    Badgers Mr Big Shrimp!

    It seems Argos is the best bet. Did chat to the chaps selling the drum bbqs but they are a bit too much for us to spend.

    Lot of camera's round Brixton.
