    "Rene Bennett" in text and tags should read Renee Bennett. Indeed in all, 11 changes from Rene to Renee need making.

    "L/S of Rene walking down street" - the street is Pragel Street in Newham, London. Renee walks past the former D. W. Comber hair salon there.

    "her husband Howard has already finished" - this is Renee's husband, Howard Powell.
