An event next week will send adventurers on a Jack the Ripper trail in east London and a quest to make new friends.

People turning up will be split into teams (perfect for bonding) before being sent off around the streets to find clues and piece together a photofit.

The free event is being put on by new online community Amvigo which aims to buddy-up people who love to travel.

People on trips, planning trips or looking for a trip to join are invited to the Jack the Ripper event, which takes place on September 24.

The ‘hunt’ sets off from Hoop and Grapes pub in Aldgate at 6pm and is expected to last around 75 minutes.

Afterwards, people will return to the pub for a drink and to discuss where in the world they may want to go next.
