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.
She said: "I have had requests to go to Manchester, Bristol, Birmingham, Leeds and even Ireland.
"I have spoken to the production team and they have said they are looking at doing another one - but from a slightly different angle."
