Angell Town estate in Brixton has been in the news this week following a series of essays written by Evening Standard writer David Cohen.

Mitchell, who moved to Angell Town as a kid, from very cramped accommodation in Battersea, gives an entirely different perspective. He loved the place, and still does.
