Church Street is also blocked due to a burst water main
I usually pop up to Church Street on a Sunday , will swerve it today .
Yes, I know. I got on the 476 bus yesterday in Stamford Hill, must have just happened as the driver was told to divert, only wanted to go down the road so I got off
They'd only just finished working on that bit of road as well - maybe they didn't put something back properly
Here's a pic of the damage.
I'd never heard of the Stokey Vintage Cafe before. I have now
Could easily have killed anyone walking past.
Bloody hell. CCTV footage of it happening. The guy who walked past just before was incredibly lucky.

that's not on Church St, it's opposite Sainsbury's on the High St.
that Pizza place sells cheap and good pizza (used to b 3.50 or thereabouts for a Margarita)
Blimey! He was seconds from being under it
Oops, sorry about that
Town Hall sanctions rent caps in Hackney Wick to 'protect its creative heart' - Hackney Citizen
Perhaps they should have had rent controls on their flats instead of upping the rent each year in the quest for 80% of "market rent"
Anyone else noticed Stokey is getting a Jamie's Italian
In the block of shops just past Amhurst Road as you're going towards Dalston, by a bus stop. Used to be a Turkish restaurant, Maydan?
Not open yet but the sign's up.
...and a Brewdog in what was Birthdays...
doesn't surprise me in the slightest tbh.
Oh yes, I read about that!
I went to Birthdays a couple of times , wasn't that impressed tbh.
Inspired the smiths song unhappy birthday
i think Bar-a-Bar opposite that Jamie thing i still a good spot, one of the last on the High St (if not Stokey)
This is interesting. Wonder if it'll actually happen.
Old Street and Clerkenwell Road could be shut to through traffic as Islington plans improvements to notoriously unsafe corridor
It's party time in Stamford Hill and Upper Clapton today is Purim!
I love to see the kids in their fancy dress
The music has started now too!
Oh! I'm at a loose end this afternoon -- might wander up and have a look...
It's party time in Stamford Hill and Upper Clapton
And I'm stuck at work
I've not always been at home on the day
Go on, have a drink for me
I always like it when there are slightly naughty nods to non-orthodox culture at Purim - saw a teenager dressed as superhero Deadpool last night on the way home.
Had a walk out this afternoon, there was a couple of little girls in Mini Mouse costumes, a post box boy, clowns, tigers - lots of different things
One young man was walking down the middle of the main road carrying a mop while talking on his phone and there was a man with a hat and matching tie decorated with smiley faces - made me smile too
Track bodies 'fell from freight train'
Very sad , 2 young blokes electrocuted near Hackney Wick , may have hit the overhead wires whilst on top of a freight train .
