Extracts from this document...


Newspaper Report I am going to write a newspaper article about my town, it is called Luton. It is thirty miles north of London. And has a population of around 187000 people. Its main features are the airport, which is currently being extended and the Vauxhall factory. The area, which I live in, is called Wigmore. It is on the very edge of the town and backs onto the countryside. There are a number of small villages beyond Wigmore, Tea Green, which has a small golf course, and Cockernhoe, which has a small junior school. They both have very few houses, as well as a church and of course a pub. All of the houses down my road are either four or three bed-roomed houses. ...read more.

There is also a Newspaper Report number of offices and factories that have been there for a very long time, they are referred to as the twilight zone. There are also a number of nightclubs and popular pubs for those in need of a little bit more mature fun. On a Saturday night the town centre would be swarming with young clubbers up for a good night, trouble quite often occurs though as a lot of the younger people take advantage of their alcoholic rights. Last of all Luton has its own football club, once of the premiership, but now they are in division two. Their ground is in the town centre and there are a number of jobs made by the football ground, from catering staff and the ticket office to coaching and kit sponsers.
