URGENT- film editor needed, London

I am a freelance documentary marker and I have a broadcaster expressing interest in a short I made in India this year. My editor has inconveniently gone AWOL and I’m looking for someone with their own facilities who will be able to cut together a 22min doc as soon as possible. Leave me a message on Lightstalkers and I’ll get back to you with more details.
