Words cannot describe the hideous sight (and smell) that greeted Angel as she walked through Gore Lane yesterday morning.

Some horrible, disgusting individual had pooed in a large pot and left it for all to see.

Later that morning some other, equally foul, individual had smeared it up someone’s wall.

Whoever you are, please go away and never come back.

nIt seems to Angel that every public relations and media writer in the country is trying to cash in on the royal baby.

Granted, the Spalding Guardian has printed an eight-page supplement to celebrate, but at least there is some substance to our publication.

Whereas Asda is encouraging Angel to buy her party food to celebrate the royal birth, Break Free Holidays wants her to mark the occasion with a British holiday, babycare specialist NUK wants to sell her Union Jack baby dummies and Matalan wants Angel’s “little prince or princess” to wear their baby range.

nAngel nearly didn't make it back on to her white fluffy cloud above Spalding on Monday night when a member of staff eager to escape the office to the sunshine accidently locked her in. Before she had time to see if her wings would squeeze through a window, she’d set off the alarm and had to fly down the stairs to switch it off. Unfortunately, it was not ringing long enough to be rescued by the fire service and calls to colleagues were in vain, so she sat on the stairs watching the world go down Abbey Path... But thankfully our intrepid photographer Tim came to the rescue and there was just enough sunshine left to see her home safely.

nAngel has been a regular visitor to the Showcase Cinema in Peterborough for many years and feels she has to voice her disgust at the state of the furnishings which haven’t been updates since the early 1990s.

On numerous occasions she has had to move seats to find one that isn’t broken and during her most recent visit the arm cover of her chair was so badly torn she could see the wood beneath. Some of the screens have been refurbished, so come on Showcase, get the rest done!

When you’re paying £9 a person to watch a film, is it too much to ask for a decent seat?

nAngel has been circling over the town centre on Friday nights watching Spalding Street Pastors sweep up broken glass and make sure the town’s late night action passes off safely.
Any fears of a cool response disappeared as clubbers literally opened their arms to welcome the street pastors in their unmistakeable navy blue baseball caps and polo shirts.

Nice to have some Guardian Angels around when you need them.
