■ Sunday is usually a day of rest, of reflection and, annoyingly, of never making it to the shops when they’re open. It seems the team at Canary Wharf’s Boots were bent on shirking the tradition when a local spotted their weekly opening hours. You would normally expect stores to open from midday on a Sunday and close early in the evening. According to a typo in the store’s window, Boots is open from 12:30am-6:00pm. After Twitter users pointed out how shattered Canary Wharf staff must be, Boots said it is looking into the situation.
