Will Self on Scotland Yard 'move'

The Metropolitan Police have confirmed that they are moving to a new headquarters. It will be the Curtis Green Building on the banks of the River Thames. But the Met Police has never actually been based in Scotland Yard.

Will Self, Professor of Contemporary Thought at Brunel University, has been reflecting on this peculiarity.

First broadcast on the Today programme on Saturday 25 May.
