The ever excellent West Hampstead Life points us to this story of ultimate pottering in NW6. After enduring weeks of banging, clattering, sawing and drilling, the residents of a block in Holmdale Road, West Hampstead called in the housing association to discover what the hell was happening in a second-floor flat. Its occupant had certainly been busy:
Neighbours say the man has built a microlight aeroplane, complete with cockpit, in the flat and is now putting the finishing touches to a 12ft by 10ft motor boat.
How the unnamed resident hoped to disgorge his creations is not discussed, but he's since been warned not to use his flat as a workshop. The Ham & High has more.
