This week Royal Baby mania swept the capital and a Chadwell Heath mum became the unlikely focus of media attention as she waited with her son for a glimpse of the newborn Prince George.
Joanna Ahmed and her son Isaaq were on national and international television as they turned up outside St Mary’s Hospital while wearing cardboard crowns in celebration of the new future king.
In other news, Ford workers marked the closure of the Dagenham stamping and tooling plant while billboard signs on the back of vans encouraged illegal immigrants living in Barking and Dagenham to leave the UK voluntarily.
