    Don’t know but the premises is huge, I was shocked at how far it goes back, so plenty of room for eat in and take away.

    I passed it now - they look like they're almost ready to open and there was four delivery scooters parked outside earlier.

    I have to say the interior does look rather contemporary and fresh and there is a large inside 'dining' area at the back.

    Is it linked to next door or is that a different new shop?

    Saw in the Bugle this morning the shop is up for rent, for £60,000! Huge amount for those premises

    Moreover what sort of applicant will be able to get prior approval to submit a planning application for change of use? The Goodsirs advert in the Bugle pulls no punches in plugging it as a "Prime bar/restaurant pitch"

    I hadn't noticed this Evening Standard article about the new use for the Kid's Company premises before - I only Googled it because the address at 7 Kenbury Street rang bells:
    Animal hospital opens at former Kids Company base
    It explains the rather fetching double sided colour A4 leaflets going out in the area aimed at people who love their pets with utter devotion (I'll spare you the photos and promotional voucher)

    There's been some sort of crash on Coldharbour Lane by Valencia Place. A car seems to have gone into a wall and there's been at least one injury. Firemen were there to cut someone out of the vehicle (or maybe in front of the vehicle). There was quite a crowd gathered around the car with some shouty drunk people heading off down the road before the emergency services arrived. No idea if they were linked but it was a bit of an odd scene. All taped off now with police in attendance.

    Here's one from earlier. It happened in Southwell Road.

    The car is still there from last night. It must have hit the wall at one hell of a speed.

    the wall has a massive crack along the wall and vertically with half of it moving about 3 inches towards the garden. The crash also moved the pillar twisting the gate hinges and pushing it into the opposite pillar, we is trapped :eek:

    I can't work out how the car managed to get into that position at enough speed to cause that kind of damage. I hope it was the driver and not a bystander who got taken away in the ambulance.

    update on the crash. Apparently the driver was speeding, took swerved and lost control when avoiding a dog/fox. crashed into the the wall narrowly missing a group of pissed up people and was rendered temporarily unconscious. while the crowd was trying to get at the driver who was on the floor someone else robbed the car, they moved on when the emergency services turned up
    we are still trapped send beer

    House of Bottles is up at the licensing committee on 19th June. The report is 100 pages long, which seems a bit ominous (haven't downloaded it yet though).

    Hope you don't mind if I repost this on the speeding / dangerous driving in Brixton thread where people seem eager to find reasons that this isn't an example of why speeding and unenforced limits aren't a very real danger to pedestrians and others.

    Bloody hell. I saw a load of people around the car after it had crashed and I heard the pissed up people shouting as they left the scene. Can't muster a lot of sympathy for the driver.

    There's loads of twats racing up and down Coldharbour Lane at ridiculous speeds.

    The car is still there, although it looks like a few people have enquired within for any 'spare' luggage.

    I overheard the guy working there discussing with another chap, who from what I gather works in another licensed shop nearby, getting caught out, or maybe it was nearly caught out (didn't quite catch the whole conversation) by underage test purchasers recently. Don't know whether that is linked to the lengthy committee report or not, but that shop is my go to for a can of Polish lager in central Brixton so I hope it's not in the shit.

    I guess the licensing people only want people buying nice craft beer from expensive outlets. :(

    Just passed by and noticed the 'for sale' sign right on the wall next to the mashed car. Will appeal to those seeking max vibrancy.
    It must be something to do with the police linking it to that other incident else why is it still there with people having to push prams into the road to get round it?

    Or maybe they don't want underage people buying alcohol.

    other incident?

    Quite - there was a double non-fatal shooting in Somerleyton Road and then there was an apparent stabbing outside the minicab office on Atlantic Road (opp. Dogtar).
    But neither of those nearby incidents were at the same time as the car crash.

    I think when initially reported the police thought that Southwell road stabbing was connected to the car but might be that was a mistake I can’t remember where I saw it now.
    Why the cars still there blocking whole pavement with tape round it for days seems odd for a simple crash though .

    The day after I exchanged contracts on my house I saw it on the news on a report about a stabbing. When I took my mother to see the house there was a huge yellow "Police. MURDER. Did you See Anything?" sign chained to the front gate.

    I think the victim was a Canadian? barman from the the Duke of Edinburgh who intervened in an attack and was literally hunted down afterwards.

    the car is only 3 months old! my feeling (no proof and the police won't tell) is that because it's not obstructing the road it's being left for the insurance company to sort out, we haven't seen the police around it doing any investigations. My only surprise is that it hasn't got a parking ticket yet
