Naked prankster

Speaking of Jeremy Vine (we were, weren’t we?) I spotted this tweet he put out yesterday. Really funny.


Jeremy Vine broadcasts his BBC Radio 2 show from Cafe Society, Byram Street, Huddersfield.

It’s a hilarious letter of complaint from the Post Office to a CUSTOMER who plays pranks on postpersons delivering his mail. It’s brilliant.



Don’t think the customer is from Huddersfield. Unless you know different.


The answer's NO, Jeremy!

Jeremy Vine got more than he bargained for when he posed this simple question on Twitter this morning.

He asked if Huddersfield’s Wimpy restaurant was the last one in the UK. No, there’s about 80! And loads of people put him right.



We’ve spoken to Phil Barden who runs Huddersfield’s Wimpey and we’ll have a story online later.

Huddersfield’s Wimpey celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. I think I need to pay a visit soon. It has REAL crockery. Shock.

Fire

The house fire in Luck Lane, Paddock, is very close to Huddersfield Grammar School.

Headteacher Tim Hoyle said: “We were warned about the smoke coming across the playing fields so we took the children inside. It seems there was no-one inside the houses.”

Pro-EU propaganda?

Steve Lingy has posted this comment on Facebook.

Listening to Radio 2 Jeremy vine is now a bbc propaganda puppet for the remain camp.this is completely out of order .scrap the bbc

Alleged bias at the BBC is another debate altogether...

Fire

More on the fire in Luck Lane, Paddock.

One house directly opposite the entrance to Huddersfield Grammar School has been very badly damaged and it’s possible the ones either side to it have also been damaged.
Former Huddersfield Grammar School pupil Michael Watson, 17, said: “At 12.30pm I was on my way down from Huddersfield New College and as I got near I saw big plumes of black smoke and thought ‘that doesn’t look good.’
“I phoned 999 and went round the back to see what was happening and several of us were trying to find out if anyone was inside the house. One lad kicked in the front door to rescue a small dog.”
