Weekend Round-Up

Weekend Round-Up

Here's what we've learned whilst you've been watching the cricket (tennis/Pride/whatever: delete as applicable):

  • Celebratory: Armed Forces Day is being observed with style in Southwark today.
  • Loo-dicrous (if you'll forgive the tabloid style pun): the £100,000 cost of refurbishing two lavatories in the House of Lords.
  • Pesky: EDL leaders arrested on ill-advised march to Woolwich barracks.
  • Vicious: man critically injured in late night assault on Greenwich High Road.
  • Targeted: man fatally stabbed in Islington on Friday night.
  • Rumoured: John Travolta heading for the West End.
  • Historic: speedy 75 year old locomotive Bittern races from Kings Cross to York.
