New Book Includes EJ Anecdotes

Monday 14 March 2005 @ 1:00 - GMT

On March 13, 2005, The Times reviewed a book about Benjamin Pell.

Although he's now an expert on media law, Benjamin once went through rubbish outside lawyers' offices, earning up to 250,000 pounds. His finds included documents about Elton.

In fact, Benjamin, a fan of the singer's, was once called into court to divulge the source of his papers. He brought along an umbrella once owned by Elton, claiming he felt ''safer'' with it.

The book is called Fleet Street Sewer Rat, and the author is Mark Watts.
