Sorry, Mr Foot, it’s coming home!

PAUL Foot, the Daily Mirror and Private Eye writer, who sadly passed away in 2004, is known as one of the industry’s investigators, walking his own way to help innocent men overturn wrongful convictions.

A football fan but fatigued by facepaint crowds, Mr Foot also had a rebellious spirit during World Cups which would see him, without fail, place a bet on England scoring no points in the group stages. Bookmakers would look at him as if he had committed treason when he asked for the odds.

The family tradition is now dutifully carried on by son Tom, assistant editor at the Camden New Journal. He won’t be striking it rich this summer after Harry Kane and co’s goal heroics in Russia.
