    I can't seem to watch it on my PC but I had a look on my phone. There's not much to go on but some of the houses and the view across the valley (at a couple of points) look a bit like Forestdale to me. I may be totally wrong though!

    I was out working in New Addington today, and apart from all the canvassers, I saw both Gavin Barwell and Sarah jones out campaigning. I shouted good luck to Sarah Jones and she thanked me. :)

    Also I think I persuaded my colleague, who lives in Croydon, to vote Labour.

    Yeah, and then he's appointed as a key aide. Chief of staff or something? I assume he's replacing one of those people who resigned.

    Wallace was due to stand trial at the Old Bailey on 17 July 2017 but the Crown Prosecution Service offered no evidence during a short hearing on 12 July 2017 and he was formally found not guilty.

    The court heard a key witness, Wallace's former partner, Florence Roche, had retracted her statement claiming that Wallace had confessed to his involvement in the murder and asked her to wash his tracksuit because 'there was a boy's brains on it'.

    Prosecutor Duncan Atkinson also said that while CCTV and phone evidence placed Wallace “in the vicinity” of Eastney Road at the time of the killing, but there were other suspects who could not be eliminated.


    He added: “The Crown has concluded that that combination of factors means there is no longer a realistic prospect of conviction.'

    Prosecutors had claimed that Wallace attacked Mr Moore and the other man after they “slighted” him during a violent altercation three days earlier.
    Mr Moore’s aunt Yvette Hinchley, 51, told a regional newspaper “We as a family are devastated and we don’t know what to do now. We are desperate to find the killer and get him behind bars.

    “Akeem’s children are still very young. They don’t understand what happened and keep asking questions about him.

    “They think their father is playing football up in heaven and all they want to do is go and play with him up there too.
    “We need to get answers for them.”

    If the council spent a bit less time worrying about stuff like this then maybe they wouldn't get absolutely fucking hammered in their Ofsted report and have Govt Commissioners coming in to support Children's Services

    At one point the Cherry Orchard Road development was going to have Europe's tallest tower block. It's already a wind tunnel with the new ones they have built. Thankfully, it looks like that's on hold. I'm guessing the shopping centre redevelopment won't be happening for a while, too.
