DANIEL Day-Lewis, who grew up in Greenwich, has made Oscar history by winning the best actor gong for the third time last night.

The star, who grew up in Croom's Hill and went to Sherington Primary School in Charlton, picked up the prize for his performance in Steven Spielberg's Lincoln.

He has previously won the top prize for There Will Be Blood and My Left Foot.

Accepting the Oscar from Meryl Streep, he said: "I really don't know how any of this happened. I do know I've received more than my fair share of good fortune in my life."

Les Miserables, which was partly filmed at the Old Royal Naval College, saw Anne Hathaway pick up best supporting actress, along with a prize for make-up and hairstyling.

My old friend Kath Shepherd who died several years ago used to say that she had 'babysat' Daniel Day-Lewis when she was young. As she had also lived in Crooms Hill for many years I'm sure her story was true. Anyone here remember Kath?
