The good and the bad

This week's news snippets!Submitted: 28 Jun 2001

As drinkers enjoyed their pints at The George, Wanstead, a crack suddenly appeared in a pillar. All customers were evacuated immediately. The damage is not serious and has been repaired and is now declared safe.
  • Mystery man found dead in the underpass between High Road, Ilford and Station Road. Death not being treated as suspicious.
  • Man robbed of his laptop while he conducted markey research in Stoneycroft Road, Woodford Bridge.
  • Posters for a concert in aid of Whipps Cross Hospital were taken down by a hospital administrator just after they were put up! They were unhygenic and and was violating the anti-litter policy, he/she said. As a result not many people turned up.
  • Looks like a 30ft BT Cellnet mobile phone mast will be going up in the corner of Clayhall Avenue and Tiptree Estate. A council spokesperson said "The council can only reject the application on siting and design, not on health grounds or any other reason." If that's correct, haven't we got a serious problem here??? I bet I'd be put in prison if I decided to place a 30ft tower of my own, however nice it looked! - Ed
