A 'quick' one for John.

John, assuming I am on a IFR flight from EGPF to EGLL.

Only one controller on line at, say, London centre.

Q. on reaching abeam Trent VOR, do I start my descent from F350 WITHOUT 
contacting the London controller? (As I am out with his controlled 
airspace at that point).

I am thinking that it is not too good to leave the descent too late.

Unlike the real world, at this point I would be under the control of 
Manchester, who in turn would hand over to London control.

Thanks, again.
