Elephant escapes

By Joyce Dunne

In mid 1979, we came to view a house in Flag Lane North. The current owner was a police officer and he told us the story of the elephant which had escaped some time earlier. He had been on night duty and when he phoned into the station to report the elephant running down Flag Lane North they asked him had he had a heavy night on the 'pop' and was it a pink one!!
