I cannot get over how ridiculous a situation this is! It’s possible to live in a house where your next-door neighbour on the same street has the same house number as you!

See these two houses? They’re both number 443 Manchester Road!

The one on the left is in Bolton, and the one on the right is in Manchester. They’re literally next door to each other!
