The Telegraph's Shane Richmond decided to get his new iPhone in Lewisham:
I didn't know what to expect when I arrived at Lewisham shopping centre, in south east London, at 6.15 in the morning, but it certainly wasn’t to find the centre deserted, barred and locked. I started wondering how embarrassing it would be to be the only person in the queue.
See, here's where local knowledge is useful – that's exactly what I'd expect in the middle of Lewisham at 6.15am – well, that and some generic fried chicken boxes fluttering in the breeze. I am rather disappointed that a pre-order queue did indeed form shortly afterwards, though. For shame.
