Weekend Round-Up

Here's what we learned this weekend whilst you were enjoying the last of the summer wine:

  • A bunch of nice Serpentine ladies are swimming the Channel to raise money to build a maternity hospital in Afghanistan. ‘Cept they’ve been delayed.
  • It seems rather an obvious finding, but apparently black cab drivers have brains like sat navs.
  • The unions are up in arms, or rather fingers – Westminster Council want to go biometric.
  • A pub landlady has saved a youth from a baying mob. Actually, we don’t know if they were baying – just reads better.
  • A North London tour company has collapsed leaving around 150 holiday makers stranded in Turkey.
  • Piccie from daejn's Londonist flickr stream.
