Alexandra Palace Way CLOSED until further notice

Very sad to report that there was a stabbing incident in the Palace car park last night, with two men killed and one in a 'critical but stable' condition in hospital. The incident spilled out onto the road, and as a consequence not even walkers (nor buses) are allowed there, and quite a large area around the Palace has been cordoned off. The incident was apparently drugs-related, and happened following an event a the Palace, judging by the Palace's News Statement.

Searching for teenagers train enthusiasts!

My son is in year 7 at APS and is really fascinated by trains and is very knowledgeable about them! He thinks he is the only person his age (12) who likes watching trains, but I thought perhaps there is someone else out there of a similar age (and local) who would enjoy trainspotting with him. 

By trainspotting, I don't mean standing with a notebook noting down the number on the same type of train as they pass by. He…
