THE story about Hampstead Heath-style public bathing ponds being constructed in King’s Cross is not a wind-up. Planning permission was granted last week. People thought it might have been some leg-pulling because Argent’s man behind the application is called Ian Freshwater. No doubt, he must be fatigued of being reminded that he is Mr Freshwater working on the freshwater ponds, ahaa, but it reminds us of the time the water mains were bust in Hampstead and Thames Water sent an engineer called Lee King to the scene. Clearly, both are the right men for their respective jobs.
