Headlines you never thought you'd see…
"THE WOLF OF SHENFIELD," is the headline on page five of today's Sun, as well as several other papers. It refers to the shooting in the leg of City broker Robin Clark at Shenfield station car park yesterday morning. He was attacked by a balaclava-wearing hit man. Referring to the hit film The Wolf of Wall Street, a friend of Clark's told the Sun that, "Robin is like The Wolf of Shenfield, he is a high-octane City boy who gives it large in whatever he does." It all seems sadly out of place in Shenfield, more the sort of thing that happens in US films. Let's hope that Clark makes a quick recovery and that the villains responsible are rapidly apprehended.
