WORLD affairs editor John Simpson wowed a full house at Ely's Lady Chapel with anecdotes from his successful career with the BBC.
Mr Simpson was in the city last Wednesday to promote his new book, Not Quite World's End, which is a departure from his previous volumes of memories.
Not Quite World's End concentrates on a optimistic outlook for the world, and considers wider issues of global warming and the Middle East.
Simpson fans will not be disappointed with the wealth of anecdotes about world leaders.

Robert Topping, of Topping's Booksellers, said the event was a sell-out success.
