Office won't tell us or his solicitors or anybody else for that

:00:02.:00:06.

matter, is when he was put on this list and why he's on the list in

:00:06.:00:14.

the first place. A hospital where five women have

:00:14.:00:17.

died in the maternity unit in the last 18 months is to be

:00:17.:00:20.

investigated by the health watchdog. Most recently a woman and her

:00:20.:00:22.

unborn child died at Queen's Hospital in Romford after the

:00:22.:00:25.

mother's womb ruptured and staff tried to revive her with a

:00:25.:00:28.

disconnected oxygen mask. And soon, the hospital will become a major

:00:28.:00:30.

centre for thousands more patients, as our political correspondent Karl

:00:30.:00:39.

Mercer reports. On the outside, it looks like the sort of hospital you

:00:40.:00:45.

would want to go to but Queens in Romford isn't a picture of health

:00:45.:00:51.

on the inside, criticised by health inspectors by poor care in its

:00:51.:00:57.

maternity unit, care that left this man a widower last year. He lost

:00:57.:01:01.

his wife Serena during complications during the birth. The

:01:01.:01:05.

hospital has since apologised, admits mistakes were made. We were

:01:05.:01:09.

very happy when we were going there. We were like, OK. We're going to

:01:09.:01:14.

bring our baby back home, and I came all alone home. Today the Care

:01:14.:01:17.

Quality Commission has announced it's sending in a team of

:01:17.:01:21.

inspectors to check the A&E maternity units and others at

:01:21.:01:25.

Queens, a last chance for the hospital to improve standards.

:01:25.:01:30.

have been monitoring this Trust closely over the recent months. We

:01:30.:01:33.

have been doing many unannounced inspections. We have been talking

:01:33.:01:37.

to staff. We have been talking to patients, and we keep finding

:01:37.:01:42.

things that are wrong. Under NHS plans, Queens is set to be the main

:01:42.:01:46.

centre for maternity and A&E in outer London, a plan heavily

:01:46.:01:49.

criticised by MPs from all sides. They welcome today's investigation.

:01:49.:01:53.

Because they have had no money. They have cut services, and that's

:01:53.:01:57.

put extra pressure on those existing services at a time when

:01:57.:02:00.

the population is growing and demand is growing. This is the

:02:00.:02:04.

woman who will have to sort out the problems at Queens. The Chief

:02:04.:02:09.

Executive here is new and knows there are tough times ahead. Nobody

:02:10.:02:13.

when they're ill and vulnerable want to be worried about going to

:02:13.:02:16.

their local hospital, so I want this hospital to be a place that

:02:16.:02:20.

the public feel confident, feel safe that they can use. The staff

:02:20.:02:25.

are committed to delivering that, and I see the CQC report as a way

:02:26.:02:31.

of demonstrating to the public that those early steps are in place.

:02:31.:02:34.

inspection team move in on Monday. They report back in September.

:02:35.:02:38.

The death of a crane driver at the Olympic Park was from natural

:02:38.:02:40.

causes according to the police. The post-mortem examination results

:02:40.:02:43.

found it was not a work-related death, so no further investigation

:02:43.:02:48.

will be taken. The man believed to be in his 60s was found slumped in

:02:48.:02:53.

the stairwell of his crane yesterday afternoon.

:02:53.:02:56.

Two social workers sacked after the Baby P scandal will be able to

:02:56.:02:58.

appeal against an employment tribunal ruling they were not

:02:58.:03:01.

unfairly dismissed by Haringey Council. The former head of

:03:01.:03:03.

Haringey Children's Service Sharon Shoesmith has defended Gillie

:03:03.:03:06.

Christou and Maria Ward. She says the pair should never have lost

:03:06.:03:15.

their jobs. Tottenham is refusing to give up in

:03:15.:03:22.

its bid to move into the Olympic Stadium. The club is continuing its

:03:22.:03:25.

legal challenge over the decision to award the 2012 venue to West Ham.

:03:25.:03:28.

A judge rejected the bid for a judicial review last week, but

:03:28.:03:32.

Spurs say they now intend to make their case in a hearing at the High

:03:32.:03:42.

With millions of Olympic tickets already sold, people visiting the

:03:42.:03:44.

capital for next summer's Games will be looking for somewhere to

:03:44.:03:47.

stay. Whether you're thinking of letting out your own home or

:03:47.:03:50.

hunting for somewhere to stay, the Met Police is warning people to be

:03:50.:03:53.

on the look-out for fake websites. Our Olympic correspondent Adrian

:03:53.:03:55.

Warner reports. This South London flat has been at

:03:55.:03:59.

the heart of an accommodations scam. It was advertised on a website for

:03:59.:04:02.

short-term rent, but the person offering the flat didn't actually

:04:02.:04:07.

own it. He just borrowed pictures of it from another accommodation

:04:07.:04:09.

website. Alison Stevenson, who lives in the United States, saw

:04:09.:04:15.

them on this website and paid out a deposit of �600 before realising

:04:16.:04:22.

she'd been conned. It looked official. We had photos of it. We

:04:22.:04:27.

had the address. This Roger, as he calls himself, sent a very long e-

:04:27.:04:34.

mail telling us details of what was around the area. It all seemed very

:04:34.:04:38.

legitimate. With millions of visitors coming for the Olympics,

:04:39.:04:42.

there is a danger of more and more scams like this. The flat is

:04:42.:04:46.

actually managed by a genuine property rentals business in London

:04:46.:04:51.

run by Julie Maddison. She says as well as one fraudster using her

:04:51.:04:55.

photographs, now another site has just hijacked her company identity.

:04:55.:05:00.

It's a new website, which I have up here, and if you go to the home

:05:00.:05:04.

page, you'll see that there is a ridiculously low price on a three-

:05:04.:05:11.

bedroom apartment which is on Green Street in Mayfair. Click on to the

:05:11.:05:18.

main page, you'll see Holiday Rentals London are running it.

:05:18.:05:21.

That's not true. UnderNeath is our address. The Metropolitan Police

:05:21.:05:26.

has set up a dedicated unit to fight organised crime related to

:05:26.:05:33.

the Olympics. They made their first arrest related to internet ticket

:05:33.:05:38.

touting. If you're seeking to find a premises, there will be the

:05:38.:05:40.

genuine, legitimate companies who are doing that, but at the same

:05:40.:05:45.

time, you're going to get the fraudsters there who look to make a

:05:45.:05:50.

quick buck. Unfortunately, we're not going to know until July, next

:05:50.:05:54.

year, whether you have been a victim or not. A tip as well is,

:05:54.:06:00.

don't ever pass cash. If someone is asking you to use a money transfer

:06:00.:06:04.

agent to pay cash for a purchase or to rent a property, no. With

:06:04.:06:08.

millions of tickets sold, the rush for accommodation has already

:06:08.:06:11.

started, and London doesn't want to be remembered by the world as the

:06:11.:06:17.

Olympic city where visitors got ripped off.

:06:17.:06:20.

BBC London has learnt about half of London's schools are expected to

:06:20.:06:23.

close tomorrow as teachers go on strike in a dispute over changes to

:06:23.:06:29.

their pensions. Thousands of union members are to walk out as part of

:06:29.:06:34.

a national day of action by public sector workers. Figures collated by

:06:34.:06:36.

BBC London suggest about 1,000 primary, secondary and nursury

:06:36.:06:39.

schools in London will be shut, although precise closure numbers

:06:39.:06:41.

will not be available until Thursday. Alice Bhanhukravi has

:06:41.:06:47.

more. Quite a few of the 1,000 pupils at this school in Croydon

:06:47.:06:51.

were hoping for a day off tomorrow, but they won't get one because,

:06:51.:06:56.

despite the teachers' strike, the archbishop Lanfrane School will be

:06:56.:06:59.

open. The whole of year 11 has already finished lessons for the

:06:59.:07:04.

year, meaning it will be business as usual. It means that the number

:07:04.:07:08.

of lessons that'll need different arrangements for supervision is

:07:08.:07:12.

comparatively small, so even though we've got something like 18 members

:07:12.:07:15.

of staff joining the action, it's not sufficient to cause us to close.

:07:15.:07:20.

But at the primary down the road, the reverse is true. 80% of

:07:20.:07:23.

teachers will be on strike here. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

:07:23.:07:28.

And for the head teacher, the near united front means she's been

:07:28.:07:31.

spared the tough choice about whether or not to open. Some heads

:07:31.:07:36.

are taxed with one or two teachers out and then having to close

:07:36.:07:41.

schools for just one or two classes, and I think that must be incredibly

:07:41.:07:45.

difficult for families who have one sibling coming to school and

:07:45.:07:48.

another not. Teachers feel really aggrieved about the proposals the

:07:49.:07:52.

Government is putting forward, which they think is very bad for

:07:52.:07:56.

the profession and which they think are completely unjustified, so 92%

:07:56.:08:02.

of our union members voted for industrial action. The ATL, which

:08:02.:08:05.

has never taken industrial action before, has also voted

:08:05.:08:09.

overwhelmingly. Now even the head teachers' union, the National Union

:08:09.:08:13.

of Teachers, has voted it's going to ballot for strike action as well,

:08:13.:08:15.

so the Government really needs to understand it's lost the confidence

:08:15.:08:20.

of the teaching profession almost completely. But in a letter to head

:08:20.:08:23.

teachers in the capital, the Mayor of London reiterated the

:08:23.:08:29.

Government's position. "I do not believe industrial action in our

:08:29.:08:33.

schools, which will inevitably create considerable disruption to

:08:33.:08:37.

the lives of children in the capital and working parents can be

:08:37.:08:40.

justified". Some London councils followed suit, also urging schools

:08:40.:08:44.

to stay open. The impact of such correspondence will be clear first

:08:44.:08:49.

thing tomorrow morning. Football now, and Andres Villas

:08:49.:08:51.

Boas has taken his first press conference since being installed as

:08:51.:08:56.

Chelsea's new manager. The 33-year- old from Portugal admits he doesn't

:08:56.:08:59.

expect to last long if he fails to bring trophies to Stamford Bridge.

:08:59.:09:09.

Chris Slegg reports. This contains flash photography.

:09:09.:09:14.

Chelsea's seventh manager in eight years may be the same nationality

:09:14.:09:19.

as his predecessor, but Andres Villas-Boas says he's not another

:09:19.:09:23.

"Special One." This is not a one- man show. Maybe I should be called

:09:23.:09:29.

a group one. Want the group together to be successful. That's

:09:29.:09:34.

my objective. As usual, the e-mail begins with a press conference, and

:09:34.:09:39.

we know where it usually ends at Chelsea, the sack - regardless of

:09:39.:09:45.

how many trophies you might manage to bring here, so what are Aunese

:09:45.:09:51.

expectations of life in SW6? What you expect from this club is to be

:09:51.:09:57.

successful straight away - to win, and Hope to be successful on a

:09:57.:10:00.

weekly basis. There's no running away from that. I would be

:10:00.:10:04.

surprised to be kept on the job if I don't win. It's as straightward

:10:04.:10:10.

as that. He knows he won't get much time. The man chosen as his

:10:10.:10:16.

assistant famously didn't need much as he scored this goal.

:10:16.:10:21.

We had - the first thing that I told him when I called him was that

:10:21.:10:25.

I had a feeling inside me that he was the right man for the job, not

:10:25.:10:29.

only because of what he represents for the club, but also because of

:10:29.:10:33.

the quality of West Brom and the quality of his work. When he's not

:10:33.:10:37.

dealing with the players, he'll be dealing with the press, so what

:10:37.:10:41.

first impressions did the 33-year- old in the Chelsea hot seat leave

:10:41.:10:47.

on them? He breezed into a room of Fleet Street hacks and broadcasting

:10:47.:10:53.

gurus, and he's charmed everybody. It's quite clear that Andres

:10:53.:10:56.

Villas-Boas is intelligent, persuasive, cogent. He ticks all of

:10:56.:10:59.

those boxes. Now the big question is whether he can actually do it,

:10:59.:11:06.

whether he can deliver. questions the man known as "mini-

:11:06.:11:10.

Mourinho" hopes to answer. Its exterior has been compared to a

:11:10.:11:13.

large garden shed. But it's what's on the inside of the new Serpentine

:11:13.:11:15.

Pavilion in Kensington Gardens that's getting the world of

:11:15.:11:22.

architecture talking. Here's our arts correspondent Brenda Emmanus

:11:22.:11:30.

reports. Its monastic frame hides a hidden

:11:30.:11:35.

beauty that slowly reveals itself to its visitors. This is the latest

:11:35.:11:42.

Serpentine Pavilion, for which its creator has placed a specific

:11:42.:11:48.

purpose. To bring gardens back into architecture like they used to be

:11:48.:11:54.

in architecture in ancient times in the east, in the medieval times, so

:11:54.:11:58.

the garden in architecture has a little bit of a poor existence

:11:58.:12:01.

around the house, but I think it should be the other way around, so

:12:01.:12:05.

here you have the idea - the garden in the middle and the house around.

:12:05.:12:09.

This annual commission allows the chosen architect to create their

:12:09.:12:12.

ultimate summer hang-out to be enjoyed by the public. This is

:12:12.:12:16.

Peter's first completed building in the UK, but he shares the glory

:12:16.:12:22.

with Dutch designer Udof, who created his special garden so what

:12:22.:12:26.

impact is our kairkristically unpredictable summer likely to have

:12:26.:12:30.

on this project? The most beautiful impact, because, as we all know,

:12:30.:12:36.

nature always looks beautiful also in bad weather.

:12:36.:12:42.

The covered walkways and seating are to allow visitors the

:12:42.:12:46.

opportunity to contemplate the beauty of this garden, which will

:12:46.:12:50.

transform over time. The colours will change. It will grow

:12:50.:12:54.

considerably. Some grasses start to die, so you'll also see the decay

:12:54.:13:01.

of certain plants while others blossom. I think - I will - too bad

:13:01.:13:04.

I don't live here. I would like to be here every week. The pavilion

:13:04.:13:14.
:13:14.:13:15.

There were a few showers around today, but fortunately, they

:13:15.:13:19.

managed to avoid Wimbledon. It looks like a half decent day again

:13:19.:13:24.

tomorrow for most of us. Tonight, ahead of that quite cool as skies

:13:24.:13:28.

clear. Winds stay light. Temperatures dip away, but it means

:13:28.:13:32.

after the recent heatwave another comfortable night for sleeping. The

:13:32.:13:36.

odd shower to the south and east of town. Most of the cloud melting

:13:36.:13:40.

away too, so we end up with pretty clear skies by the end of the night.

:13:40.:13:44.

Temperatures dipping away eventually to 11-12C. Not

:13:44.:13:46.

particularly chilly, but quite comfortable. Tomorrow morning, lots

:13:46.:13:51.

of sunshine to start with, but as the morning goes on, temperatures

:13:51.:13:55.

rise. We'll see cloud building up. Eventually we'll produce one or two

:13:56.:13:59.

showers from lunch time onwards. They will be hit and miss. There is

:13:59.:14:04.

a chance of interuptions at Wimbledon or the odd shower at

:14:04.:14:14.
:14:14.:14:17.

Henley. The weekend at the moment That's it for this evening. We're

:14:17.:14:27.
:14:27.:14:33.

Good evening. We have waved goodbye to the intense humidity and high

:14:33.:14:38.

heat. But that's not to say there won't be pleasant summer sunshine.

:14:38.:14:42.

It will be more comfortable. Cast your mind back to Sunday night

:14:42.:14:45.

where temperatures were stuck in the mid teens. Tonight for quite a

:14:45.:14:49.

few of us, it will drop down to single figures, a much fresher

:14:49.:14:52.

night. The reason is we're behind this cold front. That was the run

:14:52.:14:54.

that brought in the thunderstorms yesterday. We now have high

:14:55.:14:59.

pressure settling things down, but we've still got a bit of a north-

:14:59.:15:01.

westerly air flow bringing still a scattering of showers around at the

:15:01.:15:05.

moment. There will still be a few to come tomorrow. They tend to die

:15:05.:15:10.

out in many areas tonight. Under the clear skies, the it was fall

:15:10.:15:14.

away nicely. Still some showers in the morning across the north-west.

:15:14.:15:17.

They become more widespread tomorrow. There will be quite a bit

:15:17.:15:20.

of sunshine around. It will be a fresh start with those temperatures

:15:20.:15:24.

down at single figures first thing in the morning. The showers start

:15:24.:15:29.

off in the north-west but become more widespread. We'll see intense

:15:29.:15:31.

ones developing across north- eastern England by afternoon. Late

:15:31.:15:36.

in the day the showers tend to ease in Wales and south-east England -

:15:36.:15:39.

not too many across the Midlands. Sunshine here, but across

:15:39.:15:41.

Lincolnshire all the way up across north-east England into Eastern

:15:41.:15:45.

Scotland some heavy showers are likely with a risk of hail and

:15:45.:15:48.

thunder. A sprinkling of showers across north-west Scotland. For

:15:49.:15:52.

south-west Scotland, a few showers early on, but they should tend to

:15:52.:15:56.

die out. The showers may well be dying out for the laifrpbt and

:15:56.:15:58.

early evening for Northern Ireland. Good spells of sunshine here. It's

:15:58.:16:01.

a similar story for Wales. A few showers around the middle part of

:16:01.:16:05.

the day, but by the middle part of the day, most places dry and bright

:16:05.:16:09.

with sunshine. 19, the high in Cardiff. The south-west by and

:16:09.:16:13.

large having a fine end to the day. Sprinkling of showers, though,

:16:13.:16:18.

further east. The chance there for a shower or two for Wimbledon and

:16:18.:16:21.

ladies' semi-finals' day, but for the men's semi-finals, a fine day,

:16:21.:16:25.

as is much of the UK. Another chilly stpwaut, then temperatures

:16:25.:16:33.

up to 21-22C in the south-east, 18- 19C elsewhere. The vast majority

:16:33.:16:37.

look like having a dry weekend, not wall-to-wall sunshine. Cloud

:16:37.:16:41.

develops. Temperatures in the low teens, early 20s, much cooler than

:16:41.:16:44.
