    Shannon and Sonny Forte had been driving along the M20 on their way to work when they heard a clicking noise from behind the steering wheel. Mrs Forte, 25, said: “Sonny was trying to open the bonnet to see if he could see where the smoke was coming from, and if he could extinguish the flames.

  • The UK is living off borrowed time - and money

    This kind of thing has long been common enough in central London, but not in the wilds of Brent for heaven’s sake. I cite this story not to criticise foreigners for buying up London property - that’s their affair - but to point out that it is precisely this sort of thing which is underpinning Britain’s economic recovery.
