Good news if you fancy a sausage roll or a pasty while sat at your desk: Greggs will soon be launching a trial delivery service in London, following an earlier successful trial in Newcastle.According to the Standard, two branches of the so-called "Newcastle Embassy" in the City of London have been picked for the trial - and will deliver to anywhere within a 0.4 mile radius of the Cheapside or Eastcheap branches.By our reckoning, this means that approximately this area is covered:To qualify for delivery you need to spend £20 and - annoyingly - you have to order by 5pm the previous day in order to get your delivery between 10am and 12pm.Presumably if the trial goes well, the service will be extended.So hey, 2017 might not be all bad.

First we had the top-notch Honor 8, complete with flagship-busting looks, and then the Honor 6X arrived just after New Year with an impressive spec for your cash.It only launched there a few weeks ago, which usually means we ve got months to wait until it gets relaunched in the US and Europe.Based on what I ve seen so far, though, that can t can t come soon enough.They fold in at the sides, just like Samsung's Galaxy S7 Edge, making an already thin phone look even thinner.The rose gold metal frame around the edges won t be to everyone s tastes, but I was surprised how subtle it looks in the flesh.The fingerprint sensor has been moved to the front of the phone - an unusual move for Honor, as most of its other phones have the sensor on the back.
