Let's hear it for someone called Roger Dudding:
having amassed 9,500 lockup garages during the past 30 years, he is going to make a fortune converting them to mews homes for key workers, according to the Sunday Times . 'Under his masterplan, teachers and nurses will move in while petty crooks and chancers, immortalised in Minder , look elsewhere to cram their merchandise.' These garages, by the way, were largely developed in the 1920s and '30s because cars in those days were more prone to rusting. It says something about current standards if they can now accommodate humans.
