Drive – 29th – April 2nd

Drive – 29th – April 2nd
During this week we had a look at the local news around through the week. Among the stories we looked at were the latest on the future of the Dartford Crossing with drivers urged to honk as they drove over, amid concerns a private company that might own the bridge in the future might put up fees quite a lot.
We also featured the former Brentwood schoolboy who was knocked out of the semi-final of Masterchef. BIG FLAVOURS!! Ahem. (This is what it’s all about! I really like puddings….and so on.) Matt Edwards who’s 37 admitted the nerves of the occasion got the better of him as he went out – despite cooking pan-fried duck breast on a bed of buttered beet tops with wild mushroom tortellini. Sounds good to me.
We also heard about the driver who drove the wrong way causing traffic chaos up the A12 from Brook Street for 5 miles (without accident thankfully).
Among the best headline hits we had this week were (I think I recall) the best of the lot – the mighty Billy Joel and “All About Soul” for the latest on Ashley Cole’s broken ankle (or should that have been sole).
Tenuous I know! But in the best tradition of our headline hits – tune in for more headline hits on a big (-ish) story of the day and local news and guests between 3 and 7 on Drive.
