Four fire engines and more than 20 firefighters tackled a flat fire after a blaze broke out in a Wallington home on Sunday afternoon (March 4). Crews from Croydon, Purley and Wallington fire stations rushed to the flat, on Brackley Close, after receiving a 999 call shortly after 2pm. It took the 21 firefighters almost an hour to bring the flames, which damaged part of a split-level flat on the first and second floor, under control.
The team behind a new mural which has been under construction in New Addington since last October has finally announced a date for it to be unveiled. The street art, which has been called "heroes walk", has been created to celebrate residents who have "done a service to their community". It was set to be completed by the end of 2017, but the unveiling date for the artwork has been pushed back due to the recent heavy snow and icy weather.
Meat lovers might be excited to know that they'll be able to pick up lunch from as little as a penny at Croydon's Boxpark this week. The newest vendor at the food mall has decided to sell its signature dish for a penny a piece on Friday (March 9) to celebrate its opening. For four hours only, hungry customers will be able to buy Chicago Rib Shack's signature ribs for a penny a piece. Diners will be able to buy a maximum of three ribs each and can choose between baby back ribs and beef ribs.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
