Being by herself for most of that time, my mum needed their help to look after me while she was at work. Sadly, they’ve both now passed on. My nan was a nurse at the London Hospital in Whitechapel.

They had both been born in Jamaica and come over as part of the Windrush generation, but they didn’t talk about those early days much. I grew up my very close to them in Carr Street, near Mile End Park and the hospital where I was born and just a little north of the River Thames at Limehouse.
