CAMDEN crime fighter Silla Carron could soon be battling yobs across the country after the success of her TV debut.
After transforming her own run-down and crime-ridden Clarence Way estate in Camden Town, "supergran" Ms Carron was asked to do the same for a notorious part of Plymouth for a BBC documentary.
The programme, entitled The Estate We're In, was a huge success when it was broadcast earlier this month - with two million people tuning in.
Now Ms Carron has been inundated with requests to tackle drug dealers and hooligans across the country.
