On a separate issue, does anyone know what happened at the NatWest bank in the high street on Saturday afternoon? There were two police cars and an ambulance car parked outside, and a crowd of people milling around the entrance.
Someone was taken ill in the bank and sadly passed away.

Seemingly Ubers are discriminated against in central London as they are subject to the congestion charge which black cabs are exempt from.

Uber are not being discriminated personally, it's all non-black cabs. So it affects all Mini cabs, Addison, Uber and all the others too.

Re: Chaos at Crystal Palace funfair

That must have been terrifying, not just for your poor children but for you too as a parent. I agree with all your questions. They should have called the police at the first sign of trouble not "chased them off".. I'd have one further questions... I wonder what the parents of those youths would thin...

Re: Robbery at newsagent

A guy (black with a beard and wearing a hood with a baseball cap underneath it), who claimed to have a knife, grabbed money from the till and ran off. Yes, this is true, the owner told me this morning...
