Calling all wall climbers

Harrow's climbers are chalking their hands in anticipation ahead of the opening of a national climbing centre in February.
Lakeland Climbing Centre (LCC) leased out a 3,530sq m warehouse on Neptune Road in Harrow, following its successful VauxWall centre in central London.
LCC centre and project manager, Tom Hull, said: “Finding the right location in London is incredibly difficult and we have kissed many frogs before settling on Harrow.
"We now have the opportunity to create an exceptional facility of national importance given the size and open feel of the space.
"It will be about eight times larger than VauxWall, within a warehouse that is twice the height".
Previously serving as a cash and carry, commercial property agent Chamberlain Commercial acted with Knight Frank as the letting agency for the warehouse, following approval for a change of purpose application.
Situated within a five-minute walk from Harrow-on-the-Hill station, the centre will be served by National Rail and the Metropolitan Line.
