The large mural has attracted much attention by those Croydon’s' residents or those travelling in and out of Croydon. But what is it all about? The mural of Joshua Buatsi on Holmesdale road is a beacon of hope to those living in the area. Buatsi was born in Ghana before his family moved to the UK and resided in Croydon. He learnt how to fight in the South Norwood and Victory gym. The painting has relevance to the announcement of The Nike Training Camp Croydon which launches in January 2019. https://twitter.com/boxingbuatsi/status/1067480301050519552 The painting states ‘The gym doesn't tell you to get work in before school, you do’ this optimises motivation and strife which in a town affected by the knife crime epidemic.

Restaurant review: L’Arpège, Paris

Restaurant review: L’Arpège, Paris

The house of faith for vegetables. Probably the most divisive restaurant, L’Arpège is a place where you’d either love or hate, no in-between. As a loyal fan of the popular series Chef’s Table I came across chef Alain Passard’s 3 Michelin-star restaurant for the first time.

Police received a further £150,000 in government funding last week to aid their search. The investigation was taken up by The Metropolitan Police in 2011 after the Portuguese police had few successes in their search. BBC News reported that detectives have been applying to the Home Office every six months for a grant to continue their work.

According to Billboard, during the video debut, over 516,000 messages were sent on the Premier version of the platform.

YouTube released a statement on their official twitter: Grande knocked K-Pop group BTS 'Idol' from the top spot with 'Thank U, Next', amassing an outstanding 47 million views and counting:
