Italian?

With that name, I always thought it was a Mexican restaurant.

Never been in, like, and obviously, never will do now.

"Baffi" means moustache in Italian (and that was the logo)

Was a decent place, good food, but I guess just not enough footfall around there to sustain it. It was being converted into a care home, so not sure where that leaves the plan.

The fourth empty pub fire in Preston in 12 months and only weeks after the Garrison went up in smoke.

They don't even try to hide these days!

For a few months there were 2 skips blocking the entrance to the car park. They were removed a couple of weeks ago, which I assumed was the start of the redevelopment and would see workmen on site, and perhaps they might secure it with fencing, or patrols. It seems not...

That's what Harold Shipman said.
You prompted me to go back and read about Shipman again.

"In 2003, David Spiegelhalter et al. suggested that "statistical monitoring could have led to an alarm being raised at the end of 1996, when there were 67 excess deaths in females aged over 65 years, compared with 119 by 1998."

That's the same David Spiegelhalter, Cambridge professor, who we see talking about statistical modelling of covid all over the tellybox.

Small world.
