Hey, please don’t delete this message! My name is Ava Bell. I live in London, and last night I went out with some friends for drinks. When I woke up, I found myself inside this room! It’s locked! I got your name and number off a piece of paper posted on the wall. It was written in red ink, circled, with the word “HELP” scratched into the wall. I can’t call you; I can only write to you. I don’t know who you are-but can you help me, please?!

Was really interesting, think there were a few mistakes though! 1. On the second clue there are two dates 1897 and 1898 and it isn't clear which one is right. 2. On the street number clue, if you type in both numbers it's wrong 3. There are actually only 8 ants on the car (one on building) 4. On the maths questions, it should be subtract 30, not add 5. The story itself was a little confusing!
