Tonight on BBC London News: so it's goodbye from me,

:00:00.:00:09.

The looming crisis facing the capital's schools -

:00:10.:00:10.

as 70% face cuts under a new funding formula.

:00:11.:00:13.

Head teachers fear more jobs will go.

:00:14.:00:14.

And that means that we're looking at further reductions in staffing.

:00:15.:00:17.

I have already cut four staff post through natural

:00:18.:00:19.

Unfortunately, I may have to do a lot more of that sort of work.

:00:20.:00:25.

From the Far East to the East End -

:00:26.:00:28.

the first China-to-Britain freight train arrives in Barking.

:00:29.:00:37.

We look at what it means for London businesses.

:00:38.:00:43.

I'll explain how one London council is using drones to help repair

:00:44.:00:46.

It says it should save tens of thousands of pounds a year.

:00:47.:00:54.

And why neighbouring councils are going to court in a row

:00:55.:00:56.

about this festival on Clapham Common.

:00:57.:01:10.

Welcome to the programme with me, Riz Lateef.

:01:11.:01:15.

are we heading for a crisis in the capital's schools?

:01:16.:01:18.

The Government's proposing a change to the way in which the amount

:01:19.:01:21.

The new funding formula would mean 70% of schools

:01:22.:01:25.

But the Government insists that inner-city schools here will be

:01:26.:01:30.

allocated more money per pupil than the national average.

:01:31.:01:34.

With more details, here's our political editor Tim Donovan.

:01:35.:01:45.

In the heart of Hackney, this secondary school has been benefiting

:01:46.:01:50.

from funds which recognise extra needs and low incomes in the area.

:01:51.:01:55.

head teachers here, if the head teachers here, if the

:01:56.:01:59.

Government to reallocate resources under a new formula. He faces a

:02:00.:02:04.

choice, cut staff could go for a bigger class sizes? Inner London has

:02:05.:02:10.

led the world in recent times for student outcomes in terms of busting

:02:11.:02:14.

that issue around deprivation. We have done that because we have been

:02:15.:02:17.

given more money than other schools. Those outcomes will be compromised.

:02:18.:02:22.

You do not remedy issues around poverty and deprivation

:02:23.:02:24.

spending money. That will be money spending money. That will be money

:02:25.:02:28.

that in the future we will not have to spend. Had the Government now

:02:29.:02:32.

wanted to work? Broccoli, by spreading the money more evenly

:02:33.:02:37.

across the country. London councils which represents the school says 20

:02:38.:02:46.

million less or be available in funding. That is taken from the

:02:47.:02:51.

recent audit about funding not keeping up with inflation and it

:02:52.:02:54.

will add up to a shortfall of ?360 million in two years' time. 19 out

:02:55.:03:01.

of 32 boroughs impacted, 70% of London schools will have to find

:03:02.:03:04.

savings as a consequence of these savings. That is why we are calling

:03:05.:03:08.

on the Government to change, level up and make sure that no school

:03:09.:03:12.

loses as a result of the national funding reforms. The launch of a new

:03:13.:03:17.

parents campaign group in Muswell Hill. Is that they were not just

:03:18.:03:22.

from the area, where it has picked quickly to other parts of London,

:03:23.:03:27.

too. It shows, claims one of the organisers, the rapidly growing

:03:28.:03:31.

concern. We are seeing the effect in the classroom. That is really

:03:32.:03:34.

upsetting parents. The Government is upsetting parents. The Government is

:03:35.:03:38.

saying education spending is protected and we as parents are

:03:39.:03:41.

seeing the effect of the funding squeeze in the schools that we are

:03:42.:03:44.

using. There is disparity there. Doesn't hang you against your

:03:45.:03:49.

skills, because you don't feel they are making a decision you don't want

:03:50.:03:54.

to see the cuts? This campaign is not about criticising any individual

:03:55.:03:59.

schools. We are supported of the headteachers Anneka Nitties having

:04:00.:04:03.

to make very difficult decisions in a difficult situation. The

:04:04.:04:08.

Government insists the existing way of funding schools doesn't work very

:04:09.:04:13.

fairly. From now on it will be according to actual needs, not

:04:14.:04:16.

postcode. That is why it will remain the highest fund is part of the

:04:17.:04:20.

country under our proposals, with inner London schools being allocated

:04:21.:04:25.

30% more funding per pupil than the national average. Many parents,

:04:26.:04:27.

teachers and pupils in London may teachers and pupils in London may

:04:28.:04:30.

Well, our education correspondent Tim Donovan joins me now.

:04:31.:04:33.

Well, we heard in your report that for many years now London has had

:04:34.:04:36.

the best performing schools in the country.

:04:37.:04:38.

Might the change in the amount of money given to schools

:04:39.:04:40.

It is a key thing. After years of underperformance, the last decade

:04:41.:04:51.

and a half under what is called London challenge, the performance of

:04:52.:04:55.

schools with the improved. Places like Hackney, Suffolk, really

:04:56.:04:59.

restored confidence in many schools in inner-city areas. What you're

:05:00.:05:03.

seeing here today, over the last couple of weeks, just beginning to

:05:04.:05:06.

creep through a sense of concern about that of this funding formula.

:05:07.:05:11.

We are told by the politicians and parents that we have fun in that

:05:12.:05:16.

piece have been told and understands that the education budget has been

:05:17.:05:19.

protected and in fact be Government will say in response that it is

:05:20.:05:24.

protecting it and this year, there will be the greatest amount of money

:05:25.:05:27.

going into education has ever been in a budget of ?40 billion and they

:05:28.:05:32.

are saying this is a much fairer way, feel really reflecting real

:05:33.:05:37.

needs. Not just in London, up and down the country. Once people see

:05:38.:05:41.

the details of this formula, they will see that for more pupils, it is

:05:42.:05:47.

a fairer way of doing it. Thank you, Tim.

:05:48.:05:49.

Why people living on this road next to the M4

:05:50.:05:53.

are having sleepless nights about Heathrow expansion.

:05:54.:05:57.

I'll speaking to BAFTA nominated Andrew Garfield about his new film

:05:58.:06:02.

Hacksaw Ridge, about him growing up in Surrey and living in London.

:06:03.:06:19.

Next - from east China to east London.

:06:20.:06:21.

This is the first freight train to travel directly to the UK

:06:22.:06:24.

from China and arrived in Barking this morning.

:06:25.:06:26.

It's taken a fortnight, but that's around half

:06:27.:06:29.

As Sarah Harris reports, it could be a huge boost

:06:30.:06:32.

It had made its way through Kazakhstan, Russia and Belarus.

:06:33.:06:40.

34 conainers packed with high street goods made in a city in eastern

:06:41.:06:45.

China, heading for Barking, east London.

:06:46.:06:50.

The first direct freight train service between China

:06:51.:06:53.

and the UK and something London business leaders have been fighting

:06:54.:06:56.

It brings goods in a much faster route and across the sea.

:06:57.:07:16.

Its slower still than air freight, but it's much cheaper than the air

:07:17.:07:19.

freight costs and it's a sign that China is

:07:20.:07:21.

expanding its networks, trading networks,

:07:22.:07:22.

beyond its borders in an

:07:23.:07:24.

effective way to connect China's market with the global economy.

:07:25.:07:26.

And it's the return journey back to China

:07:27.:07:28.

which will benefit exporters from London.

:07:29.:07:32.

The service is cheaper than air freight and faster than sending

:07:33.:07:36.

There's a big demand in China at the moment, particularly for

:07:37.:07:42.

products like baby foods or mother and baby cosmetics.

:07:43.:07:44.

Or actually anything with a Royal warrant on.

:07:45.:07:46.

But the cost of exporting it by air can make the prices of these

:07:47.:07:53.

Here in Finchley, boxes are being packed to

:07:54.:08:01.

ready to make the return trip by train.

:08:02.:08:08.

It's a market many insiders as say is relatively untouched.

:08:09.:08:11.

Leaving the single market makes it even while

:08:12.:08:13.

If you go out to China, you see the cities are flooded with

:08:14.:08:22.

things like Spanish wines and French cheeses, but yet there is a real

:08:23.:08:25.

lack of British products, despite the demand in China.

:08:26.:08:29.

This train route I think is just one step forward

:08:30.:08:31.

between British China relationships and certainly in terms of trade.

:08:32.:08:34.

With Brexit coming up, companies like us are actually quite excited

:08:35.:08:36.

about the possibilities of more trade agreements between the UK and

:08:37.:08:39.

The silk Road trading routes to the west were created more than

:08:40.:08:43.

2,000 years ago, but it is hoped the renewal will lead to an increase

:08:44.:08:46.

in trade between east London and east China for

:08:47.:08:48.

The Mayor of London will tell the World Economic Forum

:08:49.:09:01.

in Davos tonight that a hard Brexit, as outlined

:09:02.:09:03.

by the Prime Minister yesterday, would be a lose-lose situation.

:09:04.:09:06.

In a speech to business and political leaders,

:09:07.:09:08.

Sadiq Khan will say privileged access

:09:09.:09:09.

to the single market is critical for London.

:09:10.:09:11.

Well, the BBC's economics editor Kamal Ahmed is there

:09:12.:09:13.

Yes. Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, it is his first visit to

:09:14.:09:29.

Davos and he is making a speech tonight all the business leaders

:09:30.:09:34.

here. Many of them big, global banks operating out of London. The

:09:35.:09:38.

leaders, chief executives are here in Davos in the Swiss Alps. A big

:09:39.:09:43.

message about hard Brexit and what the Government likes to call clean

:09:44.:09:47.

Brexit. Sadiq Khan says it would be bad for the City of London. But the

:09:48.:09:52.

City of London will still need privileged access into the EU and

:09:53.:10:00.

also the second point, maybe more slightly controversial, he says

:10:01.:10:02.

globalisation needs to be dealt with by the European Union and if many

:10:03.:10:07.

member states had a vote on being in the European Union, they would have

:10:08.:10:11.

the same outcome as Britain, they might vote to leave a massive issue

:10:12.:10:17.

of globalisation is tackled. How do you think his speech will be

:10:18.:10:20.

received the same day that two banks have confirmed they will transfer

:10:21.:10:23.

jobs from London to Europe as a result of Theresa May's Brexit

:10:24.:10:33.

plans? HSBC, the big British Chinese bank and UPS the Swiss bank have

:10:34.:10:38.

both said they are going to move some jobs, relatively limited, onto

:10:39.:10:44.

because of the changes in because of the changes in

:10:45.:10:47.

regulations between London and the European Union and the relationship

:10:48.:10:51.

with the single market. That bit of the speech about privileged access,

:10:52.:10:56.

that will go down well, but I think his second point about people being

:10:57.:10:59.

negative about the European Union, other referendums could force other

:11:00.:11:07.

countries to leave the European countries to leave the European

:11:08.:11:10.

Union. Many people think that Britain is a unique case and other

:11:11.:11:13.

countries would never think about you leaving the European Union.

:11:14.:11:17.

Disputes between neighbours are all too common in London,

:11:18.:11:19.

but it's quite unusual for two councils to have a row about noise.

:11:20.:11:22.

Wandsworth is taking Lambeth to court over plans for festivals

:11:23.:11:24.

on Clapham Common, which cuts through both boroughs.

:11:25.:11:26.

A snippet from the South-west 4 festival over the August bank

:11:27.:11:37.

It's a three-day event and this this year it is expected to

:11:38.:11:44.

attract 30,000 people to Clapham Common.

:11:45.:11:46.

Music festivals have been helf for many years here,

:11:47.:11:48.

but for the first time last summer, the noise level allowed was

:11:49.:11:51.

The complaints about the event also increased.

:11:52.:11:55.

CHEERING And here's the problem, Clapham Common

:11:56.:12:06.

sits between Wandsworth and Lambeth Councils.

:12:07.:12:10.

Which has given permission to the outdoor concerts.

:12:11.:12:18.

Anticipating the summer ahead, Wandsworth want the noise

:12:19.:12:22.

levels returned to what they were in 2015.

:12:23.:12:25.

In their fight to do so, they are taking their

:12:26.:12:28.

We are absolutely not against the event, people having

:12:29.:12:32.

That's been happening for years and we are perfectly happy

:12:33.:12:36.

What we are very unhappy about and our residents are unhappy

:12:37.:12:42.

about is the huge increase in the noise and particularly the thumping

:12:43.:12:45.

Some of the complaints were coming from a mile away.

:12:46.:12:48.

People who are not just immediately around the

:12:49.:12:50.

common, but several streets back who were having

:12:51.:12:52.

If you're sat in your garden, you can

:12:53.:12:55.

definitely hear the noise, but I don't think it's too bad, to be

:12:56.:12:58.

It denies a significant chunk of the Common to other users.

:12:59.:13:02.

Of course, there will be a lot of people attending the concert and no

:13:03.:13:05.

doubt enjoying themselves, but they won't be locals.

:13:06.:13:07.

I think if I was an adult with a kid, it might bother me.

:13:08.:13:14.

For its part, Lambeth Council gave us a statement

:13:15.:13:16.

saying, legally we are unable to comment

:13:17.:13:19.

on the specific issue, but

:13:20.:13:20.

all events go through a rigorous process involving police, health and

:13:21.:13:23.

other partners, including neighbouring boroughs.

:13:24.:13:35.

Residents of a street in west London are furious after finding

:13:36.:13:37.

out their road has been identified for possible clearance

:13:38.:13:40.

in a Government report looking at the impact

:13:41.:13:42.

Despite living several miles from the airport in Heston,

:13:43.:13:45.

they fear their homes could be demolished if the M4 is widened

:13:46.:13:48.

to cater for more people travelling to an expanded Heathrow.

:13:49.:13:50.

But the airport maintains widening the motorway isn't necessary.

:13:51.:13:52.

If planes are to take off and land on a new runway,

:13:53.:14:07.

then residents of nearby Harmondsworth know that their homes

:14:08.:14:09.

But what about the street several miles from the airport?

:14:10.:14:13.

Rob Barnstone, who campaigns against Heathrow expansion thinks so.

:14:14.:14:18.

I've certainly read all the small print in each of the documents.

:14:19.:14:22.

He says he has spent months reading background reports

:14:23.:14:26.

published by the Government on the possible impact of the airport

:14:27.:14:29.

commission's recommendation for a Heathrow expansion.

:14:30.:14:30.

"Substantial land acquisition of residential and

:14:31.:14:36.

commercial properties in the vicinity of Winchester Avenue."

:14:37.:14:42.

Winchester Avenue is right next to the M4,

:14:43.:14:44.

which this one page in the

:14:45.:14:48.

report suggests could be widened to feed more traffic to a

:14:49.:14:50.

But if it ever is, then Winchester Avenue may have to go.

:14:51.:14:54.

The Department for Transport or the Government or

:14:55.:14:58.

Heathrow Airport have not told people about this.

:14:59.:15:00.

BBC London spoke to many residents here and it seems

:15:01.:15:03.

no-one may have seen this document before.

:15:04.:15:05.

"Substantial land acquisition of residential and

:15:06.:15:06.

Christopher Allen has lived in his house for 31 years.

:15:07.:15:12.

Not just for myself, but the whole street and the

:15:13.:15:19.

neighbouring streets, because we were not informed at all.

:15:20.:15:21.

This is the first time I'm hearing about this.

:15:22.:15:30.

Ravita only bought his home in November for ?430,000.

:15:31.:15:32.

If you had been told this was possible, would you have bought

:15:33.:15:37.

The Department for Transport has details about the

:15:38.:15:43.

plans for a new runway which will be published shortly and be subject

:15:44.:15:48.

But another resident of Winchester Avenue,

:15:49.:15:53.

who has lived here nearly 40 years, wants to know what his plan

:15:54.:15:56.

What would you like the Government to do?

:15:57.:15:59.

A local MP has now tabled parliamentary questions,

:16:00.:16:08.

asking the Government for more details.

:16:09.:16:11.

I'm absolutely furious that the suggestion has

:16:12.:16:18.

The Government should at least be coming out with

:16:19.:16:30.

its detailed road network proposals and that is indeed what I have

:16:31.:16:33.

Heathrow Airport is not calling for the M4 to be widened.

:16:34.:16:37.

But until the final plans are known, there may be little peace

:16:38.:16:40.

And I gather there have been some further developments on the story

:16:41.:16:44.

tonight? Yes, the Department for Transport seems to have changed its

:16:45.:16:48.

tune on this. Back on Friday when we first started looking at the story,

:16:49.:16:52.

it said it did not give a statement, but the full plans relating to

:16:53.:16:56.

runway three expansion would be published shortly. Suddenly, at 4pm

:16:57.:17:02.

this afternoon after our report went out, calls started coming in and we

:17:03.:17:06.

were accused of scaremongering for talking to the residents and now the

:17:07.:17:17.

Department is categorically stating there are no plans at all to widen

:17:18.:17:20.

the M4. This Government report names Winchester Avenue but to little

:17:21.:17:22.

purpose. It will me a discussion of an option. It will not happen. The

:17:23.:17:27.

homes will not be demolished. Campaigners against Heathrow

:17:28.:17:28.

expansion are saying it is still the expansion are saying it is still the

:17:29.:17:31.

case that the Government did not engage properly with residents in

:17:32.:17:35.

the street and the local MP is saying the Government has been

:17:36.:17:39.

completely unclear on this. I welcome the statement that there are

:17:40.:17:43.

no plans to wait in the M4 onto the street and I want confirmation that

:17:44.:17:46.

They can capture amazing footage from a bird's-eye view,

:17:47.:17:50.

but there have also been concerns over the potential dangers of flying

:17:51.:17:53.

Well, now drones are being used in one part of London to survey

:17:54.:17:57.

buildings and repairs, instead of using scaffolding.

:17:58.:17:59.

A worrying outside the window, a drone hovering over your home. This

:18:00.:18:15.

is her council housing repairs will be carried out in Hammersmith and

:18:16.:18:20.

Fulham from now on. Spotting potential problems, with no

:18:21.:18:24.

scaffolding inside. A drone is more flexible and keen reach higher

:18:25.:18:29.

levels in a much safer way. We keep people on the ground and we

:18:30.:18:32.

controlled the drawn up there. Look make it seem somehow fitting that

:18:33.:18:36.

today's inspection is on Batman close. The council says the dirty

:18:37.:18:43.

drone, inspections can be costly and complex. We would have to do it

:18:44.:18:46.

scaffolding up just go up and sent on body to inspect, which then could

:18:47.:18:50.

come back down again and then go back up again when we do get to do

:18:51.:18:54.

the repair, which could be several months later. It's not just routine

:18:55.:19:00.

repairs. After this devastating tower block blaze in Shepherd's Bush

:19:01.:19:04.

last year, a drone was used to get a closer look at the damage. This is

:19:05.:19:14.

in the first army council has used drones. In the past, there been

:19:15.:19:16.

concerns about whether they could be used to spy on residents. Privacy

:19:17.:19:19.

campaigners say it is vital that the council explain what they are doing

:19:20.:19:23.

and why. Hammersmith and Fulham Council say it has this and all the

:19:24.:19:26.

residents here and has had to stick to strict rules seeking permission

:19:27.:19:34.

from the aviation authority. The use experienced pilots and must be in

:19:35.:19:38.

control of the area. A team on the ground keep an eye out for

:19:39.:19:43.

passers-by. Modern technology, things moving forward. It might be a

:19:44.:19:47.

good thing. It stops all the scaffolding. It saves money, because

:19:48.:19:52.

we say it cost money to put it up and when it is up, you don't know

:19:53.:19:57.

how long it will be there. There were a few break-ins. I think it

:19:58.:20:02.

would be safer. Council hopes to save around ?150,000 next year, so

:20:03.:20:07.

this new technology could become a much more familiar sight.

:20:08.:20:16.

Some good news for non-league Sutton United the Bogside, they are said to

Because if you're not, then chances are the NHS won't be able to
