It's been a slow news period here too. I have a feeling some junk food staved local journo (who can't be bothered to get off his a*** and find an actual story) is craving chicken.

Could Billericay be set for a Nando's?
article states:
"A spokesperson for the eatery said: "We're thrilled at the interest in Nando's, however we don't currently have plans to open in Wickford or Billericay."

On the day about 16 years ago, when I moved house from Wandsworth to the Oxfordshire village of Fringford, a local paper came through the letterbox. I sat on a packing case and read the front page headline. "A barn was broken into and candy floss machine was slightly damaged in Weston on The Green.
