Ordinary Londoners - No 1 in a series
Welcome to "Ordinary Londoners", a new series of portraits and stories.
Meet Len. An ordinary Londoner, born nearly seventy years ago in Kings Cross, he's been a shoe repairer ever since he started work at 15. For the last thirty years he has had a shop in Woodford. He also told me the story of the man and the woman who came into his shop with the handcuffs that wouldn't undo, but I can't repeat that story here.
It's worth knowing he's here if you need your shoes repaired properly - there are very few left as talented as Len any more.
