On the programme tonight, domestic violence against men is soaring.

:00:07.:00:12.

Official figures show reported attacks are up by 80%. It escalated

:00:13.:00:19.

into a full-scale bashing. There was nobody I could approach. I felt

:00:20.:00:23.

trapped. What I needed was a safe space but because I'm a man, there

:00:24.:00:29.

was nothing on offer. London doesn't have a single safe house for male

:00:30.:00:34.

victims. The new cycling chief sets out his

:00:35.:00:39.

plans to make our roads safer. What will happen when we leave the

:00:40.:00:43.

European stage post Brexit? We assess a possible impact on the

:00:44.:00:47.

arts. And prove that kindness exists in

:00:48.:00:52.

the world. The Londoner reunited with a stranger who came to his

:00:53.:00:57.

rescue at a train station. I don't think Tabitha realised how

:00:58.:01:01.

much she did help me. She said anyone would have done the same.

:01:02.:01:05.

People were trying to help but not in the way that she did.

:01:06.:01:11.

Domestic violence is soaring in London, where men find

:01:12.:01:17.

Official figures show an 80% rise in reported attacks,

:01:18.:01:23.

with London being described as the worst place in the country

:01:24.:01:27.

That's partly because there isn't a single safe house in the city

:01:28.:01:33.

so you'd have to go to the Midlands or the south coast

:01:34.:01:36.

It started with a slap and then escalated into a full-scale bashing.

:01:37.:01:51.

This is sadly a familiar story but when we don't often hear from men.

:01:52.:01:55.

Dan was just 25 when the violent abuse started from his partner.

:01:56.:02:00.

There was nobody I could approach, even when my friends or people at

:02:01.:02:04.

work would see my black eyes or my broken collarbone. Nobody felt

:02:05.:02:07.

comfortable addressing it. What I needed was a space for a few days

:02:08.:02:13.

but because I'm a man there was nothing on offer except advice. At

:02:14.:02:17.

the very least there needs to be safe spaces for men in central

:02:18.:02:22.

London. If councils provide full support, men will step forward to

:02:23.:02:27.

take it. Dan is one of hundreds of men to suffer domestic abuse in

:02:28.:02:35.

London. Last year, the UK's leading domestic violence charity received

:02:36.:02:40.

over 3000 calls from men, a fifth of all its calls nationally. They

:02:41.:02:44.

believe what is lacking our council run refuges for men in need. Men

:02:45.:02:50.

have nowhere to go in London. Their options are to face homelessness or

:02:51.:02:53.

carry on living with their abusive partner. BBC London has learned that

:02:54.:03:00.

in 2012, the Met Police handled over 9000 reports from male victims of

:03:01.:03:06.

domestic abuse. In 2015 this had risen to over 16,000. With the

:03:07.:03:10.

number of male victims rising, we contacted all London borough is to

:03:11.:03:14.

explore what they were doing to address the problem and see what

:03:15.:03:17.

victim support services they provided. We found that 18 areas in

:03:18.:03:22.

England and is to provide refuges for men. However, for the games in

:03:23.:03:27.

London, we discovered there is not one single refuge available for male

:03:28.:03:37.

victims of domestic abuse. Men are not always willing to go and get

:03:38.:03:39.

help and sometimes that is part of the problem in tackling this issue.

:03:40.:03:42.

The issue for men, when they are a victim, is that they feel a sense of

:03:43.:03:46.

damaged pride, a fear of not being believed. Where do they go? How do

:03:47.:03:51.

they get help? London is the worst place in the country to be a male

:03:52.:03:57.

victim of domestic abuse. Men, just like women, need places to go if

:03:58.:04:00.

they are victims of domestic violence. We view those spaces as an

:04:01.:04:09.

automatic right for women. Why aren't they are right for men?

:04:10.:04:16.

Domestic abuse catches people by surprise. That's why councils need

:04:17.:04:19.

to make sure they have services available if men do suddenly need

:04:20.:04:24.

them. Survivors such as Dan hope there experiences will influence

:04:25.:04:28.

policymakers and refuges and safe spaces for men will be created

:04:29.:04:30.

across the capital. If you've been affected

:04:31.:04:32.

by any of these issues, you can speak to the Men's advice

:04:33.:04:35.

line on 0808 801 0327. Getting London known

:04:36.:04:49.

around the world for safe cycling was a pledge made

:04:50.:04:52.

by Mayor Sadeeq Khan, which is why events over the past 10

:04:53.:04:55.

days have come as such a blow. Three cyclists have been killed,

:04:56.:04:58.

leading to campaigners Responsibility falls

:04:59.:05:01.

heavily on the new Walking and Cycling Commissioner for London,

:05:02.:05:05.

who Karl Mercer It s day four of Will Norman's

:05:06.:05:08.

new job as London's Walking It won't be the last time he's

:05:09.:05:13.

pictured on his bike. Ten months after Sadiq Khan came

:05:14.:05:17.

to power, this is the man he wants If we can get more people walking,

:05:18.:05:20.

more people cycling over the next few years, I see that

:05:21.:05:27.

as a huge success. But he starts work the week

:05:28.:05:30.

after three cyclists and two pedestrians were killed

:05:31.:05:32.

on London's streets. At the weekend there were more

:05:33.:05:35.

protests by campaigners. More demands that the Mayor

:05:36.:05:37.

and City Hall do more. What happened last week

:05:38.:05:40.

was an absolute tragedy. One cyclist getting injured,

:05:41.:05:43.

one pedestrian getting injured is one too many but to have three

:05:44.:05:46.

killed in one week and two pedestrians killed in the same week

:05:47.:05:50.

is tragic and that's why my role We've got challenges and I'm

:05:51.:05:53.

determined to make that happen. Cycling campaigners have welcomed

:05:54.:06:00.

the appointment but say City Hall We are really excited

:06:01.:06:03.

to have him here. We've seen a lot of fine

:06:04.:06:08.

words from the new Mayor, and we have seen some

:06:09.:06:13.

of the big changes coming in, but what we have not seen

:06:14.:06:18.

is schemes come forward. The man who used to do Will Norman's

:06:19.:06:21.

job when Boris Johnson was Mayor is sceptical about the Mayor's

:06:22.:06:24.

promises of ?770 million All the talk of extra money means

:06:25.:06:27.

nothing without the political will to actually spend it

:06:28.:06:32.

on something meaningful. We have not seen any new schemes

:06:33.:06:35.

at all proposed since Sadiq came to office and we've seen most

:06:36.:06:38.

of our schemes have been inherited This roundabout in Westminster is

:06:39.:06:42.

the most dangerous in the capital. It s being changed at

:06:43.:06:48.

the moment to make it safer. And the new Cycling Commissioner

:06:49.:06:51.

says more will follow. One of my jobs coming in,

:06:52.:06:54.

it is day four at the moment, but it's looking at where

:06:55.:06:57.

are the potential new schemes, We are ambitious, the budget

:06:58.:06:59.

is there, a record-breaking budget for this agenda because Sadiq

:07:00.:07:03.

recognises the importance of it. Ones he and the Mayor

:07:04.:07:08.

will be judged on. Police and the Health

:07:09.:07:14.

and Safety Executive have launched separate investigations in the death

:07:15.:07:17.

of a tree surgeon who was killed 31 year-old Gregory Bulbuc was left

:07:18.:07:20.

dangling from a rope Mr Bulbuc had a young

:07:21.:07:26.

son and was a week away Hope turned to despair today

:07:27.:07:31.

for hundreds of thousands The Aslef Union had agreed

:07:32.:07:42.

a deal to end the dispute It's been a long term saga

:07:43.:07:46.

and Marc Ashdown has been looking at the deals or no deals that

:07:47.:07:50.

have been on the table. It is a simple enough question, who

:07:51.:08:01.

should operate the doors on a train, the driver or the conductor? But

:08:02.:08:05.

it's led to nearly a year of industrial strife. The first talks

:08:06.:08:11.

between the RMT union and Southern took place just after the first

:08:12.:08:15.

strike in April with confidence high it could be ended quickly but there

:08:16.:08:19.

was no deal. More strikes followed in May and June. I think they really

:08:20.:08:24.

need to sort it out. July brought some respite but by August another

:08:25.:08:29.

five-day strike was underway. Back around the negotiating table, could

:08:30.:08:34.

there be an end in sight? Southern put forward an 8-point plan with

:08:35.:08:36.

certain sweetness and job guarantees. I understand. The RMT

:08:37.:08:46.

claim the government intervened to block any agreement. Again hope

:08:47.:08:52.

collapsed. No deal. Remember, remember the 7th of September.

:08:53.:08:58.

Another strike, this time 48 hours. And in October relations soured

:08:59.:09:02.

further. Southern changed tack. Managers put a take it or leave it

:09:03.:09:07.

deal on the table for conductors. Accept a one-off payment and new

:09:08.:09:11.

terms or face the sack. Would they agree? It wasn't to be. A three-day

:09:12.:09:19.

strike followed. A second union now joined in. Aslef, representing train

:09:20.:09:23.

drivers. Christmas promised some cheer. Aslef said it was hopeful a

:09:24.:09:29.

deal could be reached. The RMT claimed it was banned from talks.

:09:30.:09:36.

Negotiations quickly collapsed. No deal and the first all-out strike.

:09:37.:09:41.

Drivers and conductors. For three days no trains ran on any of the

:09:42.:09:47.

2242 Southern services, affecting thousands of passengers. I just want

:09:48.:09:55.

it resolved. It led to protests and in January a six-day strike split

:09:56.:10:02.

into two three-day walk outs. BBC London got all sides around the

:10:03.:10:07.

table with podiums to try and thrash it out in a public debate. They are

:10:08.:10:13.

refusing to come to a compromise. IMDb sorry for the inconvenience. At

:10:14.:10:20.

the start of this month, Aslef struck a deal with Southern. Relief

:10:21.:10:26.

all round. Great news. All the union had to do was get its members to

:10:27.:10:35.

accept. Oh dear. At 1pm today, it was rejected. Yet again, no deal.

:10:36.:10:42.

Aslef says it respects the decision and will keep working towards a

:10:43.:10:47.

solution. Southern says it is saddened and hugely disappointed.

:10:48.:10:50.

For passengers, this long-running dispute continues.

:10:51.:10:52.

It's Thursday the 16th of February and you're watching BBC One.

:10:53.:10:55.

This is what's still to come before seven o clock.

:10:56.:11:02.

The British Museum as you probably haven't seen it before. The press

:11:03.:11:08.

and fans waiting for Robert Paterson.

:11:09.:11:13.

And we are on the road following wide Londoners are campaigning to

:11:14.:11:17.

find the good Samaritan who helped him in his time of need.

:11:18.:11:27.

The head of the Barbican arts Centre has warned the arts in London will

:11:28.:11:34.

suffer unless teams are allowed to move freely around Europe after

:11:35.:11:39.

Brexit. He says the sector depends on that freedom of movement,

:11:40.:11:41.

although not everyone is convinced. Shakespeare's Richard III as you've

:11:42.:11:51.

probably never seen it or heard it before. A German touring Theatre

:11:52.:11:57.

company, whose artistic director has one big worry about the UK leaving

:11:58.:12:02.

the European stage. I hope it is not a sign of, OK, this is the island,

:12:03.:12:11.

we do our own culture and we have our own cultural identity, which has

:12:12.:12:14.

got nothing to do with continental Europe. I hope this will not be a

:12:15.:12:22.

result of Brexit. In the past year, the Barbican has played host to

:12:23.:12:27.

artists and performances from nearly 40 countries. An international

:12:28.:12:31.

outlook they accept has not been harmed by any short-term Brexit

:12:32.:12:35.

impact like the falling pound. With the change in the currency, it is

:12:36.:12:39.

more expensive for us to employ foreign actors and companies, on the

:12:40.:12:43.

other hand it is an immense boost to the tourist trade in London because

:12:44.:12:47.

it is cheaper for people to come here. We are seeing audiences are

:12:48.:12:52.

very strong at the moment. But there is a big worry about talent. The

:12:53.:12:57.

important thing from our point of view is that there is free movement

:12:58.:13:03.

and free exchange between artists, musicians, actors, if a system was

:13:04.:13:09.

put in place that was Labour intensive, time-consuming and

:13:10.:13:13.

expensive, whereby people had to apply for visas to come and work

:13:14.:13:19.

here, that would be a severe impediment to the possibility of

:13:20.:13:24.

that cultural exchange. One thing of particular concern is whether any

:13:25.:13:28.

new immigration arrangements for EU workers are going to include a

:13:29.:13:31.

minimum salary requirement. As of April that is going to ?30,000 a

:13:32.:13:38.

year for many non-EU workers. It is quite beyond the reach of many

:13:39.:13:42.

people in the arts. Those who backed leave said they should not be any

:13:43.:13:45.

harmful impact either culturally or practically. My party believed in a

:13:46.:13:53.

points system and people therefore coming for the arts would be part of

:13:54.:13:57.

the points system. They have a particular skill and they would come

:13:58.:14:03.

here with that particular skill. Presumably in the end things work

:14:04.:14:06.

out. Is there too much doom mongering? I think you have to allow

:14:07.:14:12.

people to worry about the level of uncertainty that there is at the

:14:13.:14:18.

moment. But, yes, I am confident it can be resolved. Our interest is

:14:19.:14:22.

just making sure it is resolved in the right sort of way. In other

:14:23.:14:27.

words, a call for clarity in a language all can understand as soon

:14:28.:14:28.

as possible. European football's longest serving

:14:29.:14:37.

manager, Arsen Wenger, is under increasing pressure to step down

:14:38.:14:44.

after his side's 5-1 thrashing by Bayern Munich last night. Calls for

:14:45.:14:48.

him to leave the club have been growing. But will he go? Is he

:14:49.:14:53.

waiting to be pushed? A humiliating night for Arsenal,

:14:54.:14:59.

beaten 5-1 by Bayern Munich. The Champions League run looks to be

:15:00.:15:03.

over early again. Arsenal have been knocked out at the last 16 stage

:15:04.:15:10.

plenty of times. Wenger always makes sure they get through the group but

:15:11.:15:14.

then they failed to make an impression. Barring a huge comeback

:15:15.:15:18.

in the second leg, it will be the same old story. It feels like we

:15:19.:15:21.

have been standing here doing the same report for season after season

:15:22.:15:26.

but Arsen Wenger always survives. The BBC understands there is no

:15:27.:15:30.

prospect of him leaving the club before this summer at the earliest.

:15:31.:15:34.

He has already been offered a new contract and that remains on the

:15:35.:15:39.

table but the nature of last night's collapse means that even some of

:15:40.:15:46.

those who have long defended him are now openly questioning whether it is

:15:47.:15:49.

time for him to go. I wouldn't be at all surprised that with the amount

:15:50.:15:53.

of headlines that are coming his way, that he will look at that and

:15:54.:15:58.

say, two decades, which has been extraordinary growth at the club in

:15:59.:16:02.

all sorts of ways, that he might just say, enough is enough. This

:16:03.:16:08.

stadium wasn't even built when Wenger took over at Arsenal and most

:16:09.:16:12.

of us didn't even have a basic mobile phone, let alone one where

:16:13.:16:16.

every single football fan can record their opinions and broadcast them to

:16:17.:16:21.

the rest of the world. Arsenal fan TV gives a voice to the fans who

:16:22.:16:25.

have been at the games. Recently they've not had to search hard for

:16:26.:16:31.

anti-man-macro sentiment. At the moment, it is probably about 80% of

:16:32.:16:36.

fans who say they want him to leave. But if you turn that around and say,

:16:37.:16:40.

do you want it to go now, should he be sacked, I think that would drop

:16:41.:16:49.

down to about 30%. Most Arsenal fans don't want him sacked. They respect

:16:50.:16:54.

what he has done. That did seem to sum up the mood in London today. Who

:16:55.:17:01.

would we bring in? And which players would stay? Thank you for the

:17:02.:17:08.

memories. You have done a great job. The first nine years were amazing.

:17:09.:17:12.

But it's time for change now. He's been there a long time now. He's had

:17:13.:17:19.

his good days. Last night felt like a defining defeat, one that perhaps

:17:20.:17:23.

even Arsen Wenger card comeback from.

:17:24.:17:30.

Chris, does this genuinely feel like we're approaching the end of an era?

:17:31.:17:34.

It does feel like a shift in the debate. Even those close to him now,

:17:35.:17:43.

people who have defended him, suggesting for his own good before

:17:44.:17:48.

he tarnishes his legacy, it is time to step aside. Iain Wright who

:17:49.:17:52.

played under Wenger in the early years said he spoke to Wenger

:17:53.:17:55.

recently and he said he is approaching the end of his time at

:17:56.:17:59.

Arsenal. Iain Wright took that to mean he is leaving in the summer.

:18:00.:18:04.

Wenger has since said he was not intimating any of his future plans

:18:05.:18:08.

but it has been a long time since Arsenal won a major prize. The 2004

:18:09.:18:15.

Premier League title. Many now feel Arsenal need a new manager.

:18:16.:18:20.

The newest member of what's being called the Brit Pack,

:18:21.:18:24.

a group of young British actors who've made the move to Hollywood,

:18:25.:18:26.

is at home in London for a special Night at the British Museum.

:18:27.:18:30.

It's for the premiere of The Lost City of Z with the BAFTA

:18:31.:18:33.

winner from Kingston-upon-Thames, Tom Holland.

:18:34.:18:34.

Wendy Hurrell is on the red carpet, but first let's see

:18:35.:18:37.

You are the Explorer? Give me your hand. I wish to find the lost city.

:18:38.:18:55.

I will not know you when you return. I know this is a sacrifice for all

:18:56.:19:02.

of us. We melt write a whole new chapter in history. It is there. And

:19:03.:19:08.

we must find it. It is actually a true story set in

:19:09.:19:21.

the turn of the 20th century about Percy Fawcett, a British explorer

:19:22.:19:26.

who was obsessed with trying to find an ancient city deep in the Amazon

:19:27.:19:30.

rainforest. One of the stars from the film is with me. Siena Miller,

:19:31.:19:37.

how are you? You have done a few of these premiers in your time. I have

:19:38.:19:43.

been doing it for a while now. Quite a venue. The British Museum. It is

:19:44.:19:49.

one of my favourite places in London. I want to go and have a

:19:50.:19:56.

snoop around. Have a little Google of the marbles and the Rosetta

:19:57.:20:01.

Stone. The boys got to run around in the Amazon jungle. A blessing in

:20:02.:20:06.

disguise or did you miss out on that adventure? I think it would have

:20:07.:20:10.

been great but I also love the part I played in this. By all accounts,

:20:11.:20:16.

it was not the easiest experience. Think of the mosquito bites. Charlie

:20:17.:20:22.

got a spider in his ear that ate his eardrum or something. I read about

:20:23.:20:28.

that. But she is not a stay at home wife, she is a feisty character. A

:20:29.:20:35.

very strong, very contemporary, very brave woman. I think I love this

:20:36.:20:39.

character more than anyone I've ever played. She was really struggling

:20:40.:20:43.

against the confines of society that did not allow women to be women and

:20:44.:20:47.

such a major compensation for all of us today but she was a suffragette,

:20:48.:20:52.

a real pioneer. It was a treat to play her. Isn't that important to

:20:53.:20:59.

you, that strong female character? Yes, it is. Of course. You play

:21:00.:21:07.

Babel and you find qualities you are inspired by. We are distracted

:21:08.:21:12.

because the man is here. How are you? We heard you coming. How was

:21:13.:21:19.

filming in the Amazon? That must have been pretty hostile

:21:20.:21:25.

environment. It was beautiful. You are not getting any of these

:21:26.:21:28.

questions. You are missing all the jungle. It was beautiful. It was a

:21:29.:21:36.

completely unique experience. Never going to happen again. I loved it.

:21:37.:21:42.

Are you an intrepid type or a creature comforts type? Was it

:21:43.:21:49.

difficult? A bit of both. I like to be interested with a few creature

:21:50.:21:53.

comforts on me at all times. It was nice. It is such beautiful

:21:54.:21:59.

countryside. It is inhospitable but also very beautiful and a fun place

to be. And what a place to have your premiere. The British Museum. Siena

:22:06.:22:10.

said she is going to run away and have a look around. Maybe you could

:22:11.:22:17.

go with her. Have a little snoop? I haven't been here since a sleepover

:22:18.:22:22.

in school. That shows how cultured I am. It is a trip down memory lane

:22:23.:22:29.

then. Thank you for joining us. It is out on the 24th of March.

:22:30.:22:33.

What a great place for a premiere. If you get fed up with news always

:22:34.:22:36.

being bad news then here's It all started last Friday

:22:37.:22:39.

when Londoner Joe Tye was travelling But as he boarded his train,

:22:40.:22:45.

he fell, breaking his ankle. Luckily, there was a good Samaritan

:22:46.:22:48.

who came to his aid, but once Joe was in hospital

:22:49.:22:51.

he realised he didn't know anything A week ago, Joe slipped getting onto

:22:52.:23:09.

a chain -- train to London Waterloo. I am on the floor in agony and with

:23:10.:23:16.

a twisted ankle. Didn't know what I broken but I heard a massive crunch.

:23:17.:23:23.

I thought, oh dear, I'm in trouble. The 28-year-old had broken a number

:23:24.:23:26.

of bones in his ankle. Then everybody standing over me and a

:23:27.:23:32.

lovely young lady come up, very calm, very smiley, and she said,

:23:33.:23:40.

hello, I can see you are in a lot of pain, can I offer you some

:23:41.:23:45.

ibuprofen. He was taken to hospital where he received treatment but

:23:46.:23:48.

after coming out he realised he had lost the woman who helped him's

:23:49.:23:53.

contact details. He started an online campaign to track her down.

:23:54.:23:57.

His post was shed thousands of times by the public trying to help. I

:23:58.:24:02.

would just like to say thank you to everybody that has shared the post.

:24:03.:24:07.

It meant he can travel today to meet her and say thank you in person for

:24:08.:24:09.

the first time. So, Joe, how are you feeling? We are

:24:10.:24:23.

going to go and meet Tabitha now. I feel excited. I feel a bit anxious.

:24:24.:24:28.

The woman who helped him is Tabitha Roberts who lives in Surrey.

:24:29.:24:38.

Somebody is there, strangers aren't scary, and it was something I

:24:39.:24:42.

thought was very normal and ordinary. Tabitha is a hero, where

:24:43.:24:50.

is her cape? I am really pleased. The pair now say they will be

:24:51.:24:56.

staying in touch. Joe's ankle will take some time to heal.

:24:57.:25:03.

More good Samaritan stories, that's what we want.

:25:04.:25:06.

Now, let s check on the weather with Stav Danaos.

:25:07.:25:12.

It was a bit of a chilly start a baguette it shipped to be a pleasant

:25:13.:25:20.

day. Sunny spells, a little bit of cloud and it ended up being quite

:25:21.:25:24.

mild. I will show you the radar picture because as we went through

:25:25.:25:28.

the day clouds did bubble in the afternoon. We had a little bit of

:25:29.:25:35.

light rain and drizzle pushing down from the north-west. That's how it

:25:36.:25:41.

is looking overnight. Rather cloudy. There will be outbreaks of rain.

:25:42.:25:45.

Quite a damp and murky night but at least pretty mild. Temperatures

:25:46.:25:51.

around eight Celsius. We start tomorrow on a rather damp note, a

:25:52.:25:55.

lot of cloud around. But tomorrow shaping up to be a cloudy day with

:25:56.:26:00.

glimmers of brightness. It will be merry -- very mild for the time of

:26:01.:26:05.

year. Through the afternoon we could see a few holes appearing in the

:26:06.:26:09.

cloud but because we've got light winds it is not going to mix the

:26:10.:26:12.

Iraq enough to make good holes in the cloud. We should be looking

:26:13.:26:18.

around eight Celsius so above average. High pressure is dominating

:26:19.:26:21.

the scene into the weekend across the south-east corner of the UK. Wet

:26:22.:26:30.

and windy. But our patch will remain dry. Rather cloudy on Saturday.

:26:31.:26:39.

Another mild one. Temperatures ten, 11, maybe 12 Celsius in the

:26:40.:26:43.

brightest spots. A similar picture on Sunday. More in the way of cloud

:26:44.:26:47.

to start off with and then sunny spells through the course of the

:26:48.:26:53.

afternoon. Ten or 11 degrees. The outlook is for that mild weather to

:26:54.:26:58.

continue into next week. Monday could be the warmest day of the next

:26:59.:26:59.

few days. Just before we go this evening,

:27:00.:27:03.

a brief reminder of the day's Hopes for an end to the long

:27:04.:27:06.

running dispute on Southern Train drivers from the Aslef union

:27:07.:27:10.

voted against a proposed deal which had been agreed between union

:27:11.:27:14.

leaders and the rail company. Domestic violence is soaring in

:27:15.:27:31.

London, where men are the victims. Official figures show an 80% rise

:27:32.:27:34.

in reported attacks, with London described as the worst

:27:35.:27:36.

place in the country That's the news from

:27:37.:27:39.

BBC London for now. I'm back at 10.30pm with our

:27:40.:27:42.
