Spare A Thought For Corona Road In SE London

Our thoughts go out to the good citizens of Corona Road, Lee, SE12. As well as facing the same challenges as the rest of us, they also have to put up with an unfortunate street name. Perhaps the council will consider changing it.

Residents might find further sympathy from the inhabitants of Isis Street, Earlsfield. They, too, had to grapple with a once-benign street name suddenly gaining unhappy associations, thanks to the rise of Islamic State.

But we'd recommend they don't take the mile's walk to the north-east where they might encounter Ha-Ha Road, one of London's oddest street names, with a mocking tone.

With thanks to Helen Ilus for the tip-off.
