Beryl, NW1

WHILE I was away, a text came through on Friday that Dame Beryl Bainbridge had died. I’d seen her only a few days previously shopping in Camden Town. She was one of a kind, perfectly at  home with the bohemian nature of NW1. Dan Carrier recounts her life in tomorrow’s New Journal. In the meantime, it’s still: a ‘Cor! Look at Beryl’ moment, when you see her in a blurry old episode of Coronation Street.
