As I wandered home from the Royal Oak, Grange Road is surrounded by police keep clear tape.

Half way down the road is an Astra-type car which has driven into one of the shop fronts.

So, why is the whole of Grange Road closed off - for a seemingly fairly ordinary accident?


Tally Ho! Saw a fox up at the north end of Grange Road.

I believe the accident was in some way connected with one of the two very absurd concrete islands in the middle of Grange Road at this point near former Esso garage site. These islands are poorly lit and appear without warning to cause mayhem without any useful function as far as I can tell. I believe they are "left over" from earlier road planning and now have no purpose. For once I believe speed bumps would be more useful if speed management is the function. Please TFL or Southwark remove them before there are any more accidents. Oh and do something about Great Dover Street-Long Lane -Borough High St junction. I wonder if accident rate there has increased since the change in one way system.

Those nice foxes chewed the aerial off my car! Still like seeing them though.
