Hmm, Incorrect reporting anyone? I walked passed this incident and was pretty certain I was in North Street and near Carshalton Station. Nowhere near Banstead Road or Carshalton Beeches Station if you like. Ooops!

Oh, well done!
Would you like a list of all the other articles this journalist has written with glaring errors and sloppy research so they can be changed, too?
It's a very long list...

Steady on now Car99, we musn't expect too much. At least we got a photo of a lorry by a bridge and not another opportunity to look at a photo of police incident tape as a shortcut.

Credit the photographer who would have been there but does this reporter ever leave his desk?
He relies on rumour and gossip for most of his stories.
