Latest course is The Trees of London, whence I now know what imbricate bud scales are (only had physics and chemistry at school) and have observed numerous trees and dogs in Lincoln’s Inn Fields.

    • There is an authentic boxing poster in the Globe in Morning Lane advertising a bout between the Krays – the boys, nothing to do with mum.

      A relative did something at the same school as Mr Emwazi too, and it seemed to calm him down.
