Sometjhing made me choke on my mid morning coffee today, and boy was I upset! Contrary to news reports on this website, Capital Gold radio this morning (10:30 to be pedantic) reported that southwark council, and therefore the local residents via council tax, were footing the bill for the potters field repairs.

The news reporter urged local residents to get onto Southwark for answers, after all, they said that Sky One and Blaines camp were taking care of the regeneration costs.

I have e mailed Southwark, but wondered what anyone else had heard or what other views are.
Am I getting over excited about nothing, or is Blaine hating a vindicated stance to take?

Oooo I thought this topic was long wrong could one girl be?

bye for now

Hmm. Sounds like Capital Gold were getting muddled between the police costs (which will be half paid by Sky) and the council's extra expenditure which is supposed to be totally covered by Sky.

Certainly I haven't seen Capital Gold's claims reported anywhere else, any they're not the first place I'd turn to for news.

Are you sure what you heard wasn't a mangled version of this Evening Standard story?
