    Forest Gate Maternity Hospital - same place as Idris Elba, so that's my claim to fame. I was therefore fated/doomed/sentenced/condemned to follow West Ham, although I'm not sure if Leyton Orient wasn't closer - too late now. :biggrin:
    Present whereabouts - I'd rather not say (I'm just reading 1984 :biggrin: )

    Not at all Ham. I mean, why would you want to leave? Gatwick Airport. You've got a Toby Carvery. The A23.

    Nowhere else can claim this.
