Some Examples: S6 5HF Liverpool, L6 4RT London, SW1P 6YU FY3 6TF, England BS16 5TY I need to be able to extract the postcode out of that (preferably without the space). The postcode can be in any of the following formats LN NLL, LNN NLL, LLN NLL, LLNN NLL, LLNL NLL where L is a capital letter and N is an integer. If it helps, the last block of 3 characters is always Number, Letter, Letter and that format is never used in the first half.

  • Car Insurance Renewal - cooling off period?

    My insurers have renewed my car insurance policy because I mistakenly thought the previous policy ended 5 days after it did. Their policy was considerably higher than I could get elsewhere. I have had 5 days cover - can I cancel without penalty?

  • Can a solicitor say this?

    I am involved in a court claim. I have just received an email from the other partys solicitor in which she expresses a personal opinion about me. I find this offensive - it is not an opinion about the case or about a point of law - I am described as reprehensible. Is she allowed to say that? If not, who do I complain to?

    I need to write an essay about Class, Gender & Citizenship in 1950s Britain as depicted by documentaries. Unfortunately, the British Government had taken big steps forward in the previous decade by creating the NHS, the Welfare State & winning a war so they were no longer 'newsworthy' - most of the documentaries I can find are about how lovely Power Stations are! I would appreciate suggestions of appropriate documentaries (especially if there is plenty of info/analysis online for them). If anyone has specific knowledge, I can be contacted via my profile.

  • How do I find out what I did?

    Many years ago, I was convicted for a minor crime - now covered by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act. Obviously, I know what I did, but I don't think I was ever actually told what the crime was - ie how it is recorded. If I was told, I've forgotten. How can I find out what is shown on my record?
