      You know something has gone wrong in the ghetto when 'Iron' Mike Tyson joins
      the queue in Marks & Spencer to buy sandwiches at lunchtime. In
      Peterborough.

      There was a time when Tyson was a human wrecking-machine, a physical

      away. It was a shock. But he was a very quiet, humble person."

      When Tyson left the restaurant, the Peterborough paparazzi pounced. 'The
      Baddest Man on The Planet', had been spotted again.
