Pranksters have commemorated the seventh anniversary of George Michael being found slumped in his car in Cricklewood by erecting a fake ‘blue plaque’ at the scene.
The 50-year-old singer was arrested in Cricklewood Lane, after he was discovered passed out at traffic lights on October 1, 2006.
Yesterday, a plaque purporting to be an official emblem from Barnet Council was placed on railings at the scene.
The joke emblem says ‘George Michael slept here at 3.20am on October 1, 2006’.
A resident, who asked not to be named, told the Times: “I laughed to myself when I saw it. At least it puts Cricklewood on the map and that can’t be a bad thing.”
