Does anyone know what happened outside Chestnut Grove School in Balham on Wednesday? The shop keeper said there was a young man being treated by the paramedics.
I saw 3/4 police coming out of there earlier in the week but it didn't look like anyone was being arrested. There seem to be some pretty dodgy kids at that school, from what I've seen over the years. Hope he is ok.
A lovely school that continues to get better and better. I enjoy walking past the site and seeing the pupils being pupils. When I see an ambulance outside somewhere my first thought is not whether the incident involves dodgy people but rather wondering ... [ more ]

What has happened in Streatham? Mitchum Lane is blocked off for traffic and pedestrians at the junction with Streatham High Road. Lots of police activity. Needles to say the traffic is awful all around that region.
Somehow I don't think anyone would've cared if they had lol. Can't believe the police cordoned off the road!!!
The incident I referred to had a bloke actually on the roof. These two are only a few feet off the ground though. Still I bet it caused chaos for Friday prayers at the mosque next door........
