Covering the announcement of KieranTimberlake’s competition-winning embassy design last week, Channel 4 News presenter Jon Snow said: ‘We’ve just had an email in. It says that area in Nine Elms currently hosts the largest psy-trance raves in London.’ Good show!

Garner says: ‘For the view you published to be accurate, the Thames would have to be at least half a mile wide.’
