I didn't see it in the What's On listing, but there seems to be a Festival of Street Drinking going on.
In a short(ish) walk around the Southwark Bridge Road
, Borough Road
, London Road
, Westminster Bridge Road
, Lower Marsh
neighbourhood at lunchtime, I saw more than a dozen street drinkers or vagrants, lying slovenly and ill dressed across various pavements, on their own or in groups of three or four.
I've never seen so many in such a short period of time. Does anyone know if there's any particular reason for this concentration today?
