Contributor

Ellie Broughton is a features journalist who has lived in East London since 2009.

She loves books set in London, staying up late in coffee shops and supporting the noble work of London's craft breweries.

She hates Dalston tourists, people who bicker during the morning commute, and the extortionate price of chips in the BFI Bar.
