The Knackered Chef chats with Saray restaurant

Where oh where do I start, you may have noticed that I’ve not written anything for a couple of months, that’ll be mainly due to a short stay in Kings College just up the road. It’s a story I’ll save for later but it really is a cracker, needless to say life changing events promote life changing decisions.

I had promised the new restaurant Saray just opposite the park that I would come and have a chat with them only I ended up chatting to a doctor over the finer points of how they were going to repair my face, I digress.

Cyclist sought re 'motiveless' serious assault


Police have issued an image of a man they wish to speak with in connection with a serious assault in south London.

A woman was walking near Costcutters in Norwood Road, Herne Hill, SE24, at around 22:50hrs on Wednesday 29 February.

The 34-year-old was walking home alone when a man cycling along the road suddenly cycled onto the pavement and came up behind her. He punched her repeatedly in the head, causing her to lose consciousness and causing head injuries.

She remains in a serious but stable condition at a south London hospital.

The suspect continued cycling along the pavement before punching a 46-year-old man, also walking on the pavement, and cycling off. That victim did not require hospital treatment.

Both attacks appear to have no motive.
