Yes indeed!

London Beer Flood

Spurs' Court Road = Tottenham (Tottenham Spurs FC) Court Road

Parliament lived = Rookery (Parliament is a flock of rooks, a rookery is also slang for a slum)

Eight people died from drowning in beer or injuries when buildings collapsed

Judge & jury ruled the accident an Act of God
