Touching

Deputy production editor Rob Parr walked on the wild side last week after associate editor Clare Bettelley’s leaving do.

Separated from Mortgage Strategy’s workforce, the dazed and confused Welshman wandered lonely streets only to attract the attention of one of Soho’s ladyboys.

An innocent query about the whereabouts of Berwick Street led to Parr being cupped by the hairy-handed hooker. He was left open-mouthed, which Mole thinks was a mistake given the circumstances.

“Buy me dinner first,” equipped the production man before walking home to Tooting like Caine in Kung Fu.
