You’d never lose your phone again: big is best, says Homerton man

THE TV COMIC Dom Joly would be envious of this giant phone. He’d have to go to Urswick Road, Homerton in north Hackney to see it: the dial-up giant is sitting in a front garden.

Pictured is Dennis Murphy, who has had enough of it taking up most of his plot. So it’s for sale at £500, or for hire, negotiable. Tel: 07984 540268 or 020 8985 0149.

The glass-fibre phone was commissoned as a publicity device by the NSPCC, for which Murphy and his brother David have occasionally worked.

It would certainly end that dilemma “Now where did I leave my phone?”
