Advert for flatBrixton’s housing market is inspiring property marketeers to new heights of craziness.

In an online advert, a flat shown on a map in Clapham South, is described as being “in central Brixton”.

Where once a Brixton flat was marketed as being in “Clapham borders”, now Brixton is expanding all over south London.

At £550 a week for three bedrooms, at least the rent is not as crazy as some being sought.
