MORE than £100,000 damage was caused when fire raged through a unit of an industrial estate at Stoke Row. Exhibition stands, other display equipment and gaming machines were reduced to ashes. Flames were 100 ft high and the smoke was visible six miles away from Henley. Firemen managed to prevent the fire from spreading. Mr Robinson had told the Standard that he believed the fire was due to an electrical fault.

An angry motorist is taking on the town, the district councils, local police and Henley’s traffic wardens in a battle for the right to legally park his own car outside his house in New Street, Henley. He argued that there was “no consistency in the attitude of police or traffic wardens”. Mr Chalkley has the support of many New Street residents, some have decided to join him in a crusading bid to deduct 8.3 per cent from their rates.

A Saudi Arabian princess tried to buy a £200,000 house near the Thames in Cape Farewell in Wargrave. But Miss Cooper and her family who owned the property, claimed that the princess’s solicitor, Mr HB Reynish, had agreed the sale without their authority. The result is a legal battle between solicitors and the seller. The contract for sale was withdrawn and the princess’s money was returned.
