Apr 07, 2017, 03:17 PM

On this week’s East London News Review podcast editor Lindsay Jones and reporter Matt Clemenson join Time FM’s Steve Allen to talk otters, housing and the Grand National. First on the agenda was the news that otters were to be reintroduced to the River Roding in Wanstead as part of an ambitious improvement scheme. Then, the trio discussed the Recorder’s four-page housing special, which takes a look at the good, the bad and the ugly sides of the housing situation in Redbridge. And finally, they talked about Danny Cook - the jockey from Collier Row who is set to ride Definitly Red, one of the favourites, in tomorrow’s Grand National. The next East London News Review podcast will be available in two weeks’ time due to the Good Friday bank holiday.
