When police were searching the house they failed to spot a human thigh bone propping up a bird table in the garden.
Until now, we at El Reg have assumed that Google's Street View spymobiles are as fearless as they are all-seeing, but it appears this may not be entirely true. We direct readers to strange and somewhat spooky goings-on at 10 Rillington Place - the infamous west London house where between 1943 and 1953 John Reginald Halliday …

Clearly our Google overlords find Gloucester serial killers less scary than the London ones!

Loved that film clip. Oh for the days when a flat cap afforded protection from flying masonry. I suppose builders in caps have gone the same way as those red and white-striped tents you used to see at road works, where you would probably find the workers drinking tea.
And how soul-destroying must it have been for that reporter that he was still working on the newsreels in 1970, when all his more savvy journo friends had gone over to the new-fangled tele-vision.
