    Yeah it's definitely £48 as I had my hair done there the other week. They did a cracking job and they'll also do free fringe trims if you're a customer, which means I'll be able to see in about a month when mine has grown!

    There's a lost oldish black labrador dog wandering around the West Norwood Triangle bit by the church. It was crossing the traffic about 10 mins ago.

    No collar and looking a little bit confused - can any one share in case they know who it might belong to?

    The BBC are reporting that Vale Street in W Norwood is closed due to an unlicensed music event last night. Does anyone know about that?

    It's all over twitter and Facebook. I'm just round the corner but somehow slept through it all. Seems like a party that got massively out of hand. Teenagers running riot, a 322 got stormed and reports of a stabbing and acid attack :( The stabbing seems to be confirmed by BBC reporting but don't know about the rest. From what I've read the neighbours were calling police/council etc from late afternoon but seems nothing happened to sort it out till well after midnight by which point it was well out of hand.

    All open now. I went through there with the dog a little while ago and no evidence of police anywhere, but there's a lot of litter and broken glass all over the place.

    The naked lady with the prosthetic boobs (can't remember her name) was outside Iceland causing quite a stir on the sunny streets. She had the boobs full out today and the usual shorter than short skirt on. She might as well not have worn anything tbf. Iceland security said she wouldn't be allowed in like that.

    21 year old Pascoe Petgrave of Thornton Road, Thorton Heath, has been jailed for two-and-a-half years for causing serious injury by dangerous driving after a hit and run in West Norwood left one victim paralysed from the chest down.

    Petgrave, mounted the pavement with his BMW at speed before colliding into two young women, Chanelle Higgins and Nikisha Cox, walking along Norwood High Street, after a night out.just after 4.30am on 29 May 2016.

    Chanelle, a mother of two children, broke her neck and was left with devastating spinal injuries and spent six months in hospital recovering. She is now confined to a wheelchair with limited upper-body movement, needing round the clock care.

    Petgrave failed to stop at the scene and told jurors he had mounted the pavement fearing for his life after being chased by two men armed with weapons.

    His car, which had a smashed window screen as a result of the collision, was later seen in the forecourt of a local petrol station and once the footage of this was circulated among police officers, it was spotted by an officer patrolling in south London. The car was seized and Petrgrave was arrested after reporting his car stolen to police.

    Following a three-day trial at Inner London Crown Court, Petgrave was convicted of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and sentenced to two years and six months in prison on Thursday, 9 November 2017. He was also disqualified from driving for two years upon release and required to take an extended driving test at the end of the disqualification period.

    Claudette Hamilton, CPS London South reviewing lawyer, said: "We used CCTV footage to demonstrate to the jury the total disregard Petgrave took for his actions. This callous individual, who was uninsured at the time, drove into both women from behind and fled the scene. He did not report the collision to police, forcing the victim to take part in media appeals to identify him.

    "This incident has had profound consequences for one victim. Her life has changed dramatically and she will now require round-the-clock care as a result of Petgrave’s actions.

    "Dangerous driving can shatter lives and I hope this successful prosecution goes someway in bringing comfort to the victims and their families."

    PC Laura Travers, who led the investigation for Lambeth CID, said: "This was a shocking incident.

    "These two women were simply on a night out to see friends and now their lives have changed completely."

    In 2008, as a 12 year-old, Petgrave made national news headlines when arrested by than 50 police officers when he was accused stealing a £10 note which was hanging out of a cashpoint machine at the now disappeared HSBC bank machine in Thornton Heath

    Does anyone know of a local vacuum repair person or shop? According to google the nearest one is Fulham.

    What’s wrong with it?

    I don’t know a lot about vacuums, but I’m sure anything fixable could be done at home.

    It’s something to do with the spinny thing that picks up the dirt. You can tell by my terminology I’m not a very technical person. Anyway, I’ve found a local repairer now ta.

    Smick Strictly Second Class

    You can usually take those out easily. They get crap wound around them. That stuff they wrap Christmas trees in clogged mine up recently. Clean it off and it might be fine. I would help you if you wanted. And then if it is properly knackered, get the repair man in.

    Ah, thanks. I usually get the scissors out and cut any crap I can see out...the spinny thing looks lose and may possibly be broken (looks like there’s a piece missing). I’ll have another butchers and I’ll f I can’t fix it I’ll let you know. Cheers.

    Smick Strictly Second Class

    I don’t want you to think I’m in any way proficient at this sort of thing but it’s usually easily sorted. There’s ordinarily someone on the internet who has had the same issue and you can see how they fixed it.

    On 1 December 2017, Mark Morris was jailed for life with a minimum term of 21 years for the murder of Emma Day, with a 30-month sentence for possession of the knife to run concurrently.

    The Late Emma Day

    Sentencing Morris, the Recorder of London, Judge Nicholas Hilliard QC, said 'He (Morris) must know the children are nearby. And having seen the children, he must know that he is leaving them without a mother.'

    'You must have been mindful of them (the children) when you did this in a public street because you had only just seen them, although thankfully they did not see their mother’s murder.'

    [​IMG]

    The judge said he was satisfied he did intend to kill Ms Day, referring in a text message to her on the morning of the murder to 'the grand finale'.

    It will be tomorrow or Thursday that I could have a look. I’ll reiterate, I’m not a repairman, but I installed a ceiling light and changed some electrical sockets during the week so I am keen to tinker. It’s VAT that annoys me most about getting someone in to do something. If someone fixes your vacuum and charges you £50, £10 of it goes in tax immediately. Getting stung for £10 by the exchequer just for having a broken vacuum is insult to injury.
