    Hi Bill,

    If you’re being redirected to a page at shef.ac.uk/hri/locatinglondon with a message ‘the page cannot be displayed’, it’s apparently a caching issue – you need to clear your browser cache and try again. The site seems to be OK, but if you continue to have a technical problem you can email hri@sheffield.ac.uk

    I’ll pass on the URL!
