she wanted a stronger Britain, in charge of its own laws

:00:00.:00:00.

A childhood friend of George Michael tells the BBC he believes

:00:00.:00:07.

the star's death may have been linked to hard drugs.

:00:08.:00:13.

He had stopped all the hard drugs, you know.

:00:14.:00:15.

He was trying to lead a normal life again.

:00:16.:00:17.

I just believe he was dragged back in,

:00:18.:00:19.

In an exclusive interview he speaks for the first time

:00:20.:00:27.

Also this evening: What could the Prime Minister's Brexit plan

:00:28.:00:31.

We get reaction from two London markets.

:00:32.:00:42.

People need to grow up and get on with it and then we would still be

:00:43.:00:50.

trading with each other. There was nothing in this for finance. If we

:00:51.:00:53.

can't sell those products to those people, we take an economic hit and

:00:54.:00:55.

potentially it is a big hit. Calls for the Mayor to take urgent

:00:56.:00:57.

action after fresh questions are raised over the safety

:00:58.:01:00.

of the Notting Hill carnival. And, the West End's celebrity

:01:01.:01:02.

hotspot, as The Ivy Restaurant celebrates a centenary

:01:03.:01:05.

of serving the stars. Good evening. Welcome to the

:01:06.:01:23.

programme. First tonight, in an exclusive

:01:24.:01:27.

interview with the BBC, a childhood friend of George Michael

:01:28.:01:30.

says he believes a cocktail of hard drugs and anti-depressants may

:01:31.:01:33.

have been responsible for the singer-songwriter's

:01:34.:01:35.

death on Christmas Day. Andros Georgiou, who grew up

:01:36.:01:38.

with the star, was in the process of reconciling with him

:01:39.:01:41.

after a falling-out. He says he still can't comprehend

:01:42.:01:43.

what's happened as George was one It has been more than three weeks

:01:44.:02:03.

since George Michael passed away. Leaving his friends, family and fans

:02:04.:02:08.

bereft. Now, a close friend, Andros Georgiou, has spoken for the first

:02:09.:02:14.

time. The George I know was a very private person, and incredibly

:02:15.:02:23.

generous person, and one of the nicest people you could ever meet.

:02:24.:02:28.

The singer's death came as a shock. First of all I did not believe it, I

:02:29.:02:33.

still needed confirmation, so I was trying to call people and

:02:34.:02:37.

everything. I could not get hold of anybody until late that night, 11pm.

:02:38.:02:42.

And then, you know, it was all confirmed to me and everything.

:02:43.:02:47.

George Michael was found dead at his home on Christmas Day. On the 29th

:02:48.:02:53.

of December, a postmortem examination proved inconclusive.

:02:54.:03:00.

Further tests are being carried out. But, Andros Georgiou believes drugs

:03:01.:03:06.

played a part in George Michael's death. I just think that he took too

:03:07.:03:16.

much of something, mixed with the antidepressants and other drugs he

:03:17.:03:25.

was on with alcohol. I think his heart just stopped beating. The

:03:26.:03:31.

former music producer says this is despite the singer being in rehab.

:03:32.:03:35.

He was actually in a Swiss clinic for three years. Before he came out.

:03:36.:03:44.

But he had stopped all the hard drugs, you know, he was trying to

:03:45.:03:49.

lead a normal life again. I just believe he was dragged back in.

:03:50.:03:52.

This interview raises more questions than answers, and here, at George

:03:53.:03:54.

Michael's home in Highgate, fans have continued to pay their respects

:03:55.:03:57.

But, more than three weeks after his death,

:03:58.:04:03.

Now to news that a three-day strike on Southern rail,

:04:04.:04:19.

scheduled for next week, has been suspended.

:04:20.:04:21.

Both sides in the ongoing bitter dispute over "driver only operated"

:04:22.:04:24.

Our Transport Correspondent Tom Edwards is here.

:04:25.:04:27.

Some relief for commuters, but what do you make of this?

:04:28.:04:30.

I think in the short term it is very good news for Southern commuters,

:04:31.:04:36.

and I have not said that for a very long time, over a year this has been

:04:37.:04:41.

going on. The train drivers union has suspended the strikes next week,

:04:42.:04:46.

Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. They would have brought the Southern

:04:47.:04:50.

network to a standstill. Tomorrow, Southern and Aslef are going to

:04:51.:04:53.

attend talks which will be jointly hosted by the TUC and the train

:04:54.:04:59.

operator. They have issued a statement. They say they are

:05:00.:05:04.

committed to finding a fair solution to the dispute and they are pleased

:05:05.:05:08.

the parties have agreed to meet for meaningful talks. As you would

:05:09.:05:15.

expect it is not straightforward. The RMT union represent guards and

:05:16.:05:18.

they are still going to go out on strike on Monday. They are still

:05:19.:05:22.

trying to get into tomorrow's talks and I have just been told in the

:05:23.:05:27.

last five minutes by the TUC that is not going to happen, the talks are

:05:28.:05:30.

only going to be between Aslef and Southern. It seems Aslef, the

:05:31.:05:35.

drivers union, are going on there own, but there is definitely a

:05:36.:05:40.

thawing here in this dispute. It has been a long time since you said

:05:41.:05:41.

that, thank you. Serious questions have been raised

:05:42.:05:47.

once again over the safety of the Notting Hill Carnival

:05:48.:05:49.

after a report today claims the event is becoming increasingly

:05:50.:05:52.

violent and dangerously overcrowded, and wants the Mayor

:05:53.:05:54.

to take urgent action. Others argue though that

:05:55.:05:56.

Europe's largest street festival is still much safer

:05:57.:05:57.

than other big events. After 50 years, a new report says

:05:58.:06:00.

it is at tipping point. Carnival might seem a long way away

:06:01.:06:16.

on a cold January day, but it is already in the forefront

:06:17.:06:19.

of some people's minds. A report out today says

:06:20.:06:23.

they are worried about overcrowding, a rise in violent incidents,

:06:24.:06:28.

and they say the trust that runs it One person who has experienced

:06:29.:06:31.

the violence first-hand is Joe. He was stabbed in

:06:32.:06:41.

the arm last Carnival. Initially I thought,

:06:42.:06:44.

why did I get punched in the arm? As I looked at my arm,

:06:45.:06:52.

there was blood spurting I just held on to the wound

:06:53.:06:55.

and started to run. It could have happened to anybody,

:06:56.:07:01.

so it can definitely be safer. I would like it to be so no-one else

:07:02.:07:06.

experiences what I experienced. Crowd surges like this last year

:07:07.:07:10.

made those who policed The Met say each year

:07:11.:07:22.

they come close to major Overcrowding, yes it is dreadful

:07:23.:07:25.

around Ladbroke Tube Station and further up all Saints

:07:26.:07:35.

Road and so on. If there was an incident,

:07:36.:07:37.

goodness knows how any help would be Violent crime is not

:07:38.:07:40.

particular to Carnival, and there is some suggestion that

:07:41.:07:43.

out of 1 million visitors, the 151 violent incidents means it

:07:44.:07:48.

affects relatively few. We want it going on

:07:49.:07:50.

for another 50 years. Another point out of the report

:07:51.:07:55.

is that the festival is run by some great people,

:07:56.:07:58.

some volunteers, but by their own admission,

:07:59.:07:59.

the trust needs more support. Although it is easy to say it needs

:08:00.:08:02.

to be safer, how do you do it? His team say they have

:08:03.:08:06.

already commissioned It is still good and I enjoy it,

:08:07.:08:09.

the music is great. But, I mean, there is

:08:10.:08:15.

also a downside to it. This report builds pressure to make

:08:16.:08:19.

this year's Carnival Let's pick up on this with our Home

:08:20.:08:22.

Affairs Correspondent Nick Beake. We've heard some concerns

:08:23.:08:31.

over Carnival before. How likely do you think

:08:32.:08:33.

it is that we could see any changes? I think there is quite a strong

:08:34.:08:45.

chance we will. Yes, these are not new concerns, but it is clear that

:08:46.:08:49.

the Met is worried about this recent escalation in violence over the last

:08:50.:08:53.

few years. Scotland Yard had previously threatened to scale back

:08:54.:08:56.

the policing of the event because it is expensive for them, but the

:08:57.:09:00.

reality is, in this climate, the way we have seen crowds targeted in

:09:01.:09:04.

places like Berlin before Christmas, and also in Nice, they are not going

:09:05.:09:08.

to want to do that. The question is, what would change its mark as

:09:09.:09:12.

mentioned in the report, there is this review commissioned by Sadiq

:09:13.:09:17.

Khan. It will try to come up with some solutions to some of the

:09:18.:09:20.

problems that have been highlighted today. We know that under this mayor

:09:21.:09:24.

the route will not be changed, and he has said that the whole event

:09:25.:09:28.

will not be scrapped. They do want to reduce the numbers of people

:09:29.:09:31.

going to it, so one thing they could do is introduce ticketing goes on --

:09:32.:09:38.

said people had to pay to go to Carnival, a bit like we had to pay

:09:39.:09:42.

if we want to see the New Year's Eve fireworks on the Thames. Carnival

:09:43.:09:45.

purists may think that destroys the whole essence of the event, but

:09:46.:09:49.

other people may think that this is a way of ensuring that it does have

:09:50.:09:51.

a bright future. Thank you. I am at one of London's most famous

:09:52.:10:05.

celebrity haunts, celebrating its 100th anniversary.

:10:06.:10:10.

And, after a beautiful day across London, how cold will it get under

:10:11.:10:14.

clear skies tonight? I will have the forecast later.

:10:15.:10:26.

Next: Apparently we're ditching frothy pints of beer

:10:27.:10:28.

That's according to new research about how our high streets have

:10:29.:10:32.

It shows that traditional venues like pubs and clubs are making way

:10:33.:10:37.

for more restaurants and coffee shops.

:10:38.:10:38.

With more details, here's Marc Ashdown, and his report

:10:39.:10:40.

Could I have a skinny dirty chai with honey

:10:41.:10:43.

If you tried to order one of those five years ago,

:10:44.:10:47.

Across London, coffee shops and trendy pop-ups are gradually

:10:48.:10:52.

replacing more traditional entertainment venues like pubs,

:10:53.:10:54.

Food, it seems, is now more central than ever to our social habits,

:10:55.:11:01.

I give you the roast dinner burger with all the trimmings.

:11:02.:11:06.

People are looking for something different,

:11:07.:11:09.

and it also give them inspiration for what they are doing at home.

:11:10.:11:12.

They eat out and they cook at home for their friends.

:11:13.:11:15.

It's no surprise that as our love of food shows like the rate

:11:16.:11:30.

Great British Bakeoff has grown, our leisure

:11:31.:11:32.

But, while the UK is seeing overall growth in the number

:11:33.:11:35.

of leisure businesses growing, London is the only region

:11:36.:11:38.

This new research found overall there are now 71 fewer

:11:39.:11:41.

leisure venues in London, compared to five years ago.

:11:42.:11:43.

Traditional venues like pubs, bingo halls and comedy clubs have

:11:44.:11:46.

seen the biggest decline, by 658, newly 40% of the drop

:11:47.:11:48.

But cake makers, juice bars and party venues have grown

:11:49.:11:52.

Professor Jonathan Morris studies how consumption habits change.

:11:53.:12:03.

At the end of the day, we would go to the pub.

:12:04.:12:06.

But we don't tend to at lunchtimes as we feel we shouldn't be drinking

:12:07.:12:09.

That's why coffee shops have been successful,

:12:10.:12:12.

because they have brought in all those customers who felt

:12:13.:12:15.

in some way excluded from the kinds of things going on in

:12:16.:12:18.

There is still an appetite for pastimes like bingo.

:12:19.:12:24.

Venues just have to jazz things up a bit.

:12:25.:12:27.

Here, bingo mixes with, well, dance music.

:12:28.:12:30.

It began life in Liverpool but is to hit London next month.

:12:31.:12:37.

It is essentially bingo but in between it is a rave,

:12:38.:12:39.

there are dance-offs and things like that.

:12:40.:12:41.

Why go to a pub when you can come here?

:12:42.:12:51.

But traditional venues haven't quite had their day.

:12:52.:12:54.

There are still more pubs across London than any other

:12:55.:12:59.

So we haven't lost our love of a cold drink, it's just these

:13:00.:13:03.

days we expect something a little bit different.

:13:04.:13:11.

And if you want to find out a bit more about where you live

:13:12.:13:14.

and how it's changed, head to the BBC London website

:13:15.:13:17.

The athlete known as the weirwolf , six-time Paralympic

:13:18.:13:25.

champion David Weir, has announced his

:13:26.:13:27.

immediate retirement from international athletics.

:13:28.:13:30.

The 37-year-old from Sutton posted a message on Twitter today

:13:31.:13:32.

in which he said he had made the decision after being "let down

:13:33.:13:35.

He added he will race at this year's London marathon but will never

:13:36.:13:40.

Wimbledon and Sutton United are two names intrinsically linked

:13:41.:13:52.

Tonight they face each other in the competition

:13:53.:13:56.

The winners will be through to the fourth round and also land

:13:57.:14:00.

Chris Slegg is pitchside at Kingsmeadow.

:14:01.:14:10.

Wimbledon try to make the fourth round for the first time since they

:14:11.:14:17.

were founded in 2002 after the original Wimbledon defected to

:14:18.:14:20.

Milton Keynes. Sutton United of the National League are trying to get to

:14:21.:14:23.

the fourth round since the first time since 1999 when they beat

:14:24.:14:28.

Coventry. ?70,000 in prize money is at stake tonight, and ?144,000 TV

:14:29.:14:35.

money, because whoever wins at home to Leeds will be live on BT Sport.

:14:36.:14:43.

Neal, what would it mean to be the first manager to take AFC bundled

:14:44.:14:47.

into the FA Cup fourth round? Massive, there have been a lot of

:14:48.:14:51.

firsts in my time at Wimbledon because we are such a new club. Of

:14:52.:14:56.

course it would be great to take them to the fourth round, and it

:14:57.:14:59.

keeps this season alive and it keeps a good buzz around the place. The

:15:00.:15:05.

original bumbled and eat Liverpool in the 1988 final. How much

:15:06.:15:09.

inspiration do you draw from that? They managed to beat one of the

:15:10.:15:14.

greatest teams. I remember watching it, watching the build-up to it. It

:15:15.:15:20.

is a big competition and we will be giving it our all. Good luck, I will

:15:21.:15:28.

let you prepare the team. For one of Saturn's fans, they have even

:15:29.:15:29.

released a song. Dash-macro Saturn. The man behind the microphone, Jeff

:15:30.:15:58.

Martin, joins me now. What does it mean for fans to get to this stage?

:15:59.:16:02.

It is brilliant to be here, what an incredible night for an FA Cup game.

:16:03.:16:06.

You can smell the tension in the FO. We are not here to make up the

:16:07.:16:10.

numbers. If you get through to play Leeds, that will bring back memories

:16:11.:16:19.

for fans of your generation? Yes, Lily 50,000 people squeezed in and

:16:20.:16:22.

it would be lovely to get to that again. We are focused, we will be

:16:23.:16:30.

100% behind the boys today. What is your prediction? You are the

:16:31.:16:34.

underdog. I am not making a prediction. This for us is going to

:16:35.:16:38.

be an extra great atmosphere, and extort make experience. If we play

:16:39.:16:42.

well we know we can wind this. Good luck. Kick-off here as at 7pm.

:16:43.:16:51.

Dash-macro 7:45pm. Chris, thank you.

:16:52.:16:55.

Following the referendum, the prime minster said

:16:56.:16:59.

"Brexit means Brexit", and today Theresa May revealed

:17:00.:17:01.

more on how she intends to make that happen.

:17:02.:17:03.

So, what could that mean for the capital?

:17:04.:17:05.

Tim Donovan has been looking at the detail

:17:06.:17:07.

Londoners, as we know, were in favour over all of staying in the

:17:08.:17:25.

EU, so it is more tricky than most areas for the Prime Minister,

:17:26.:17:31.

Theresa May, to convince, when 60% were unhappy with the decision, too

:17:32.:17:35.

convinced that this is not going to cause harm. Three main areas of

:17:36.:17:39.

three main questions, the single market, those for killers, that

:17:40.:17:45.

freedom of movement, of Labour, up goods and services, and capital,

:17:46.:17:48.

coming out of the single market what would it do to that? What will the

:17:49.:17:53.

cost be? The question of immigration, the issue of control on

:17:54.:17:58.

EU workers. So important when we are up to 1 million from the EU

:17:59.:18:02.

currently working here. And this question of transition, how long

:18:03.:18:06.

will that be? She talked today of phased in the mentation, rather than

:18:07.:18:12.

a cliff edge decision. I took the tension out in east London today.

:18:13.:18:21.

Dash-macro temperature. So, should become out of the single market?

:18:22.:18:25.

Word had reached many about the Prime Minister's speech. What you

:18:26.:18:30.

think about coming out of the single market? It is about people growing

:18:31.:18:33.

up and getting on with it and we will still be all trading with one

:18:34.:18:39.

another. You are happy to come out? Yes, because I see the world is a

:18:40.:18:42.

bigger place than just that, but I don't want to come out and not be

:18:43.:18:45.

able to trade with Europe any more. But neither do they not want to be

:18:46.:18:50.

able to trade with us. What do you think about coming out of the single

:18:51.:18:54.

market, what could that do to the economy? The interest rates might go

:18:55.:19:05.

up. Pension, cost of living, it is uncomfortable. Theresa May is saying

:19:06.:19:10.

she thinks trade will be given a great boost because the opportunity

:19:11.:19:17.

is now noble. How? I can't see that. This Turkish man voted to come out,

:19:18.:19:21.

but now he thinks that will harm us economic. You voted to come out but

:19:22.:19:26.

you have changed your mind? I changed my mind. If we voted again,

:19:27.:19:31.

I would stay. The Prime Minister says the economy is getting better,

:19:32.:19:34.

or has not been as bad as people says. We have not come out yet. In

:19:35.:19:41.

the future it might be more difficult. Down the road in Canary

:19:42.:19:47.

Wharf, you was one gloomy outlook. London makes and sells financial

:19:48.:19:51.

products to the world. At least 20% of those go to people in Europe. If

:19:52.:19:56.

we can't sell those products to those people, we take an economic

:19:57.:20:00.

hit and potentially it is a big hit. But the Prime Minister said she

:20:01.:20:03.

would get a good deal for the financial sector. The Prime Minister

:20:04.:20:08.

can say what she likes, but what matters is the governments of the

:20:09.:20:12.

country where our customers are. If they are not prepared to play ball,

:20:13.:20:17.

there will be no deal. He was an overview in the city today. Now what

:20:18.:20:21.

the negotiation stance of the government is going to be. That

:20:22.:20:25.

gives the opportunity to people to have more certainty over the next

:20:26.:20:28.

couple of years, and they can start to plan for the future. I think

:20:29.:20:31.

there is going to be much more sense of optimism that the opportunities

:20:32.:20:37.

are clearer and the downside is now limited. Back at the market, that

:20:38.:20:43.

other issue,. The average person like myself once control of our

:20:44.:20:50.

borders. Have a listen will stop Brexit must mean control of the

:20:51.:20:56.

number of people who come to Britain from Europe. That is what we will

:20:57.:21:01.

deliver. What did you think of that? To the ordinary, average person in

:21:02.:21:04.

the street, that is the most important thing to us. If people are

:21:05.:21:11.

coming and we have not got the jobs for them, what will they do question

:21:12.:21:14.

up we have to have some control, no matter what. But aren't they coming

:21:15.:21:21.

because there are jobs here? Where? It is what the EU has done for us,

:21:22.:21:25.

or not done for us, which continues to divide opinion.

:21:26.:21:34.

I think these two big issues this evening, the financial sector so

:21:35.:21:37.

important to the capital, tens of thousands of jobs could be on the

:21:38.:21:41.

line. And that question of immigration, maybe up to 60,000 new

:21:42.:21:47.

EU workers coming here every year, 930,000 working here now. They are

:21:48.:21:50.

putting pressure, some people say, on a range of Applix services, but

:21:51.:21:55.

they are also fulfilling those jobs, in the health service and on

building sites. Overall, Theresa May will say this is just fulfilling the

:21:59.:22:03.

voice of the people, how they voted, what they wanted. Thank you.

It's the celebrity haunt tucked away in a corner of the West End that

:22:10.:22:13.

for 100 years has hosted the stars of stage and screen,

:22:14.:22:15.

from the golden age of glamour to the A-listers of today.

:22:16.:22:18.

Well, The Ivy's now been recognised with a green plaque

:22:19.:22:20.

Frankie McCamley has been behind the scenes of the world famous venue

:22:21.:22:25.

that started life as a small Italian cafe.

:22:26.:22:34.

A familiar sight outside one of London's most popular wants for the

:22:35.:22:41.

rich and famous. But today, they are not here just to catch a glimpse of

:22:42.:22:47.

the celebrity a listed on the guest list. The Ivy is celebrating its

:22:48.:22:50.

100th anniversary with a commemorative main plaque from

Westminster City Council. And, behind the iconic stained-glass

:23:01.:23:05.

tell. Coming in here with some friends who will remain nameless, on

:23:06.:23:08.

the same evening that Princess Margaret arrived, and my friend,

:23:09.:23:14.

disappearing from the table at some point, and coming back extremely

:23:15.:23:20.

giddily, said, I have just worn Princess Margaret's code. This is

:23:21.:23:26.

one of the most sought-after tables in the restaurant, where the likes

:23:27.:23:29.

of Kate Moss and Tom Cruise has sat. It is a million miles away from when

:23:30.:23:37.

it first started. We are surrounded by famous artwork and dishes made by

:23:38.:23:40.

some of the top chefs in the capital. The venue has had different

:23:41.:23:46.

owners give beginners, and a major refurbishment in 2015, as it has

:23:47.:23:49.

tried to adapt and keep up with accommodation in the city. It is

:23:50.:23:53.

very difficult to stay at the top in an incredibly and increasingly

:23:54.:23:59.

competitive restaurant world. People like new, people want to go to the

:24:00.:24:04.

next hottest place, so for restaurants like The Ivy, which have

:24:05.:24:08.

been around for 100 years, it is a job to stay relevant. And that it

:24:09.:24:13.

has, with a host of celebrities caught on camera here over the

:24:14.:24:16.

years, including the supermodel Kate Moss, and Vogue editor Anna Wintour,

:24:17.:24:22.

posh and Becks, and the American film star Jack Black. One of the

:24:23.:24:27.

people capturing those moments was Max. The IV was always important

:24:28.:24:32.

because you get a good calibre of celebrity. It is just seeing the

:24:33.:24:36.

lifestyles of the rich and famous, and in their more candid situations

:24:37.:24:39.

sometimes, not always, just at official events. Along with its

:24:40.:24:45.

infamous shepherds pie, this venue has been part of the city's

:24:46.:24:50.

theatrical history. The hope is it will remain that way in the years to

:24:51.:24:51.

come. Let's get a check on the weather

:24:52.:24:55.

now with Wendy Hurrell. Hello, it was absolutely beautiful

:24:56.:25:10.

today. The weather watchers have been out in force, inspired by the

:25:11.:25:19.

beautiful blue skies. That goes for you as well, where we will have ten

which is quite low tonight. Down 2-4 is a possibility, but we could see

:25:27.:25:30.

minus seven in a feud places tonight. It is cold out there this

:25:31.:25:35.

evening because of the Lear skies, and that has been almost exclusively

:25:36.:25:39.

for us today. We have been the sunny corner of the UK, as you can see. As

:25:40.:25:45.

we zoom in, you can see the edge of this cloud, which could creep

:25:46.:25:48.

further towards us through tomorrow, but certainly out there at the

:25:49.:25:52.

moment it is staying at bay. As we go through the night, we will have

:25:53.:25:57.

less guys continuing, and you can see the blue tinge on the map as the

:25:58.:26:02.

temperatures falling and the frost forming because the wind is light.

:26:03.:26:07.

It will get pretty cold, even in central London will reach freezing

:26:08.:26:13.

or just below, and there will be another frost tomorrow morning. Wrap

:26:14.:26:19.

up warm when you head off to work in the morning. There should be some

:26:20.:26:25.

sunshine in the south-east. This cloud could creep a little bit

:26:26.:26:29.

further in, and then temper just out of the sunshine under the cloud will

:26:30.:26:36.

feel a good deal colder. More cloud as the week goes on. This is

:26:37.:26:42.

Thursday's picture. Bright spells, settled and dry, but more cloud as

:26:43.:26:50.

the week goes on. This could be a bit pessimistic, there could be a

:26:51.:26:54.

bit of sunshine, but it remained settled and dry and cold.

:26:55.:26:56.

Thank you. The day's headlines:

:26:57.:26:58.

The Prime Minister has confirmed Britain will be leaving

:27:03.:27:05.

and British courts must have the final say in
