I was just comfortable sitting with my headphones on, thinking, ah i love the smell of spring bonfires, when it suddenly occurred to me, where can you have a bonfire near tooley street?

So i looked out the window and there's a big green skip on fire. The fire crew is here, it's taking ages to put out, and they've sealed off the jamaica road end of tooley street bus lane and eastbound traffic, so anyone heading this way in the next half an hour will have a few traffic delays.

Just thought you might like to know.

(Lucky you Sophie, sitting comfy in the afternoon. I'm v jealous. Shouldn't you be out selling stories to the national press?? ;-)

...there's plenty more c**** in the cup.
