HAS Russell Brand been visiting Crayford this week?

News Shopper reader and budding photographer Richard Short snapped this photograph of who he believes to be the comedian at Hall Place on Wednesday.

It appears to show Mr Brand with his mother, Barbara, taking a stroll through the gardens at Hall Place, in Bourne Road.

The star was also seen to post a photograph on his Twitter account, which shows Barbara posing barefoot outside the glasshouse.

He captioned it: "My Mum. She's going in there to throw stones. Should she?"
