Belgique is up for sale, according to Wansteadium’s favourite weekend read, Bakeryinfo.co.uk.

It’s just a few weeks since its founder and boss Igor Bekaert won a battle with Redbridge planners over the terrace which he installed at the front of the Cambridge Park branch. He collected more than 1,000 signatures opposing an order that the Â£120,000 terrace be removed, and the decision was overturned by a planning inspector.
