Millwall 1-0 council as a huge redevelopment scheme

:00:00.:00:00.

Its sports fans generally, this is sport's fight.

:00:07.:00:22.

We're live in Bermondsey with reaction.

:00:23.:00:29.

I'm in Dagenham were two women have died at a fire in these maisonettes.

:00:30.:00:34.

An investigation has been launched into how it started.

:00:35.:00:35.

Also tonight: combating the cost of childcare -

:00:36.:00:36.

plans to help parents in the capital find money for nursery.

:00:37.:00:39.

And a look round the London Tudor palace -

:00:40.:00:41.

Good evening, welcome to the programme with me Riz Lateef.

:00:42.:01:06.

The future of one Millwall FC looks safe after plans to buy the land

:01:07.:01:13.

around the ground have been abandoned.

:01:14.:01:17.

It comes after BBC London learned that the council would hold

:01:18.:01:20.

an independent review into controversial plans

:01:21.:01:21.

Millwall had suggested it could force them to leave the area.

:01:22.:01:25.

Millwall Football Club might not be in the Premier League but that

:01:26.:01:33.

doesn't make it any less loved by its fans and that is because of work

:01:34.:01:38.

like this, community work, young, talented footballers being given a

:01:39.:01:41.

step up through sport but the coaches he believed up until today

:01:42.:01:44.

that they would have to move it out of this building, next door to the

:01:45.:01:50.

Den. They thought it was over. Children

:01:51.:01:59.

are caught you run by the Millwall Football Club trust. -- children are

:02:00.:02:12.

taught here. Today, the plans were scrapped. We've only reach this

:02:13.:02:15.

public pressure through online pressure against the council.

:02:16.:02:22.

Millwall fans but also other sports fans generally, it is sport's fight

:02:23.:02:29.

itself. It was not just the trust that was under threat, a compulsory

:02:30.:02:32.

purchase order meant local businesses would have to move, all

:02:33.:02:36.

in the name of a regeneration that would bring thousands of new homes

:02:37.:02:39.

to the area. Many couldn't understand why the two could live

:02:40.:02:45.

together. Hopefully is the end, weedy little bit sceptical about

:02:46.:02:47.

news from Lewisham Council but it has been a complete nightmare for

:02:48.:02:55.

three or four years, uncertainty in terms of playing and businesses. We

:02:56.:03:03.

got the fish unit next to, one of London's leading wholesale fish

:03:04.:03:06.

businesses, and we have plans to upgrade our own unit which have been

:03:07.:03:14.

made difficult. the euphoria of the recent FA Cup win has been matched

:03:15.:03:19.

by today's News for some fans. In a statement, the council said it is

:03:20.:03:23.

not proceeding with any compulsory purchase order on the new pregnancy

:03:24.:03:27.

development. -- Bermondsey. They believe it means an improved

:03:28.:03:41.

regeneration can begin. We can say with certainty they can stay in

:03:42.:03:46.

south-east London. It means the community can continue to operate in

:03:47.:03:49.

the local area and it will mean that they give the Academy is saved. It

:03:50.:03:55.

also means we can re-evaluate this development, get more affordable

:03:56.:04:00.

social housing, which Londoners really need. Is great news for

:04:01.:04:05.

Millwall, great news for fans and I'm grateful to the community

:04:06.:04:10.

support. There are plenty of hope to jump through before any regeneration

:04:11.:04:13.

starts but the club and its community organisation to leave now

:04:14.:04:19.

they can survive the bulldozers. -- believe now. The next big meeting

:04:20.:04:26.

will be on February eight for Lewisham Council. No statement yet

:04:27.:04:31.

from the developers but the smiles on the faces of these young football

:04:32.:04:33.

tonight tell their own story. Two women have died after a house

:04:34.:04:40.

fire in east London. Five people have been taken to

:04:41.:04:47.

hospital. Firefighters rescued

:04:48.:04:48.

a child and three adults It happened first thing this

:04:49.:04:50.

morning in Dagenham. Flames and thick smoke,

:04:51.:04:53.

flashing sirens, this is what awoke neighbours

:04:54.:04:55.

on Bradwell Avenue this morning. One woman stands seemingly

:04:56.:04:58.

trapped on a balcony. Eyewitnesses say she was

:04:59.:04:59.

rescued by firefighters. There was a woman out

:05:00.:05:07.

there on the balcony with a baby trying to get down and five minutes

:05:08.:05:11.

later the fire brigade turned up, smashed the window to try

:05:12.:05:17.

and get her out and the people running around with no tops on,

:05:18.:05:20.

so a very worrying time. People were banging,

:05:21.:05:25.

shouting, screaming, then I went out to the balcony

:05:26.:05:31.

to see it was a fire and when the firefighters came

:05:32.:05:34.

I managed to get out. When firefighters came,

:05:35.:05:38.

they found that five people, including two children,

:05:39.:05:41.

had escaped by themselves, but it was too late

:05:42.:05:44.

to save two other women. They were confirmed

:05:45.:05:46.

dead at the scene. The women who died here have not yet

:05:47.:05:49.

been officially identified. Police say they are still trying

:05:50.:05:57.

to trace their next of kin. Five people, including two children,

:05:58.:06:01.

had been taken to hospital. It's not known how serious

:06:02.:06:04.

their injuries are. That side of the block

:06:05.:06:06.

are a tight community, Forensic teams have been

:06:07.:06:11.

examining the scene, trying to work out how

:06:12.:06:14.

the fire started. At the moment, it's being

:06:15.:06:17.

treated as unexplained. Some neighbours have been moved out

:06:18.:06:19.

into temporary accommodation And it's also emerged that three

:06:20.:06:22.

people, including a child, have died in a separate

:06:23.:06:34.

fire in Reigate. They were found in a bed together

:06:35.:06:36.

by police, who were called yesterday The fire's cause is not yet known,

:06:37.:06:39.

but it is believed to have Still to come tonight: We hear

:06:40.:06:46.

from the mother of the 20 year old accused of attempting

:06:47.:06:54.

to assassinate Donald Trump And I'm at a hidden gem in London, a

:06:55.:07:08.

historic site where football's offside rule was born and which

:07:09.:07:11.

opens to the public for the first time in over 600 years.

:07:12.:07:17.

London Underground is warning passengers who use the Central

:07:18.:07:19.

and Waterloo and City line to expect disruption later

:07:20.:07:22.

Let's get the details from our Transport Correspondent Tom Edwards

:07:23.:07:28.

who's at Bank station in the city for us tonight, when

:07:29.:07:30.

If you use the Central line and the Waterloo and Central line,

:07:31.:07:42.

destruction is on the way. The Central line at shut early tonight

:07:43.:07:49.

at about 11pm. Also tomorrow, they will be more serious disruption in

:07:50.:07:57.

Leytonstone and there will be a reduced service on the rest of the

:07:58.:08:02.

line. Also, they will be no service at all on the Waterloo City line

:08:03.:08:07.

so city workers that use that service are going to have to find

:08:08.:08:11.

other ways to work I'm afraid. What is the dispute about? It's a local

:08:12.:08:17.

issue about three depots in Essex and their eight tube drivers who

:08:18.:08:23.

have been told it will have to work as of else caught by London

:08:24.:08:27.

Underground. That has not gone down well at all with the unions, as you

:08:28.:08:32.

can imagine. Hence, we are in this situation we have this straight.

:08:33.:08:37.

London Underground say this strike is completely unnecessary. We need

:08:38.:08:40.

to move staff from locations where they are underutilised. The RMT have

:08:41.:08:47.

said, there is no doubt if London Underground get away with this, they

:08:48.:08:51.

will start shunting around drivers regardless. This is a local dispute

:08:52.:08:55.

at the moment but in the current climate, you just don't know where

:08:56.:08:56.

it's going to end up. A man's been arrested

:08:57.:09:01.

on suspicion of threatening the Brexit court campaigner,

:09:02.:09:03.

Gina Miller. Her legal challenge forced

:09:04.:09:04.

the government to give MPs a vote The 50-year-old was arrested this

:09:05.:09:07.

morning in Knightsbridge. Passengers were evacuated

:09:08.:09:16.

from a train in South East London London fire brigade were called

:09:17.:09:18.

to Kidbrooke station to a train Southeastern are investigating

:09:19.:09:24.

the fire under the drivers cab. A North Korean diplomat who defected

:09:25.:09:34.

from the London embassy last year has given his first TV interview

:09:35.:09:37.

since his defection. He's told the BBC he believes

:09:38.:09:39.

the regime will collapse one day Now living in South Korea,

:09:40.:09:42.

Thae Yong-Ho has been talking about how much

:09:43.:09:46.

he misses his old life in London. The North Korean Embassy just off

:09:47.:09:49.

the north circular in Ealing. For about ten years,

:09:50.:09:56.

this was home of the former deputy ambassador, Thae Yong-ho,

:09:57.:10:03.

then in August he defected In his first interview since

:10:04.:10:04.

defecting, he says his relatives in North Korea will have been sent

:10:05.:10:08.

to prison camps as punishment I am sure that my relatives,

:10:09.:10:13.

brothers, sisters, families right now are all sent to remote,

:10:14.:10:25.

closed areas or prison camps. I'm very much now determined to do

:10:26.:10:27.

everything possible to pull down the North Korean regime

:10:28.:10:48.

and to save not only my family, but the whole North Korean

:10:49.:10:50.

people from slavery. On the North Korean leader,

:10:51.:10:53.

Kim Jong-un, he says he believes the dictator is prepared to fire

:10:54.:10:56.

nuclear weapons at America Kim Jong-un will press the button

:10:57.:10:59.

of this dangerous weapon. He thinks that his

:11:00.:11:11.

rule and his dynasty Remembering his life in London,

:11:12.:11:18.

the former diplomat said I really miss that life,

:11:19.:11:28.

especially in Ealing. Even now, I'm really sorry for not

:11:29.:11:34.

saying goodbye to my tennis club. I still miss the English spring

:11:35.:11:38.

and autumn so now I really want to say goodbye and thank

:11:39.:11:41.

you to all my club members. Next this evening: Women MPs say

:11:42.:12:06.

they're experiencing unprecedented Around two thirds of those

:12:07.:12:08.

questioned by the BBC said they felt "less safe" following the murder

:12:09.:12:13.

of Labour MP Jo Cox last summer. Let's get more details

:12:14.:12:16.

from Louisa Preston, As we know, it took women a long

:12:17.:12:27.

time to get into the building behind me, the first female MP was elected

:12:28.:12:32.

98 years ago after many years of struggles and it seems that female

:12:33.:12:35.

MPs are facing struggles of their own today. After the death of Jo

:12:36.:12:41.

Cox, many MPs feel unsafe after receiving abuse verbally and

:12:42.:12:45.

physically. A BBC survey has found that eight out of ten female MPs

:12:46.:12:50.

have received some sort of verbal abuse and half have received

:12:51.:12:55.

physical abuse. In London, we see many female MPs, one of the standard

:12:56.:13:01.

ones Labour MP Stella Creasy spoken out a lot about it and faced years

:13:02.:13:07.

of abuse. The MP for Kilburn joins me now, Tulip Sadik, tell me about

:13:08.:13:14.

the abuse you faced. In ranges from abuse about my gender, my name, my

:13:15.:13:26.

religion to more dishes in terms of threats of physical violence when

:13:27.:13:29.

they said they wanted to butcher me and my family, and you can imagine

:13:30.:13:32.

how horrible it is when the attack your family as well. At the end of

:13:33.:13:37.

the day, you're just doing your job. Yes, and I'm just a public servant,

:13:38.:13:41.

I was elected and I'm happy to engage with people if they want to

:13:42.:13:43.

have a constructive political discussion with me, about policy or

:13:44.:13:48.

my views, but to actually just direct abuse at me, dressed up as

:13:49.:13:53.

political discourse, is unacceptable. You think social media

:13:54.:14:01.

and Twitter is to blame? Ten years ago I worked for an MP who received

:14:02.:14:04.

a lot of hate mail but it would be in written form with the stamp on

:14:05.:14:07.

it, posted to the House of Commons on the winners now you don't really

:14:08.:14:10.

need to do that any more, you have Twitter and Facebook on your

:14:11.:14:13.

smartphone, you can access MPs and celebrities very quickly and hurl

:14:14.:14:17.

abuse at them all from the privacy of your bedroom, hiding behind a

:14:18.:14:21.

computer screen, which is really sad. It's interesting. Five out of

:14:22.:14:31.

six of the female MPs when actually asked if they were sure they would

:14:32.:14:34.

want to become an MP if they were starting their careers all over

:14:35.:14:39.

again, they said yes, they would, so difficult for female MPs but it

:14:40.:14:42.

obviously doesn't put them off doing their actual job.

:14:43.:14:46.

The mother of a man from Surrey accused of trying to assassinate

:14:47.:14:49.

Donald Trump says she's looking forward to him coming

:14:50.:14:51.

home, so he can get help for Asperger's syndrome.

:14:52.:14:54.

20-year-old Michael Sandford was arrested at a Trump rally

:14:55.:14:56.

He was sentenced to 12 months in prison, and is due

:14:57.:15:00.

Our reporter David Allard has been speaking to his mother Lynne.

:15:01.:15:08.

I love Las Vegas! June last year. This footage shows the moment

:15:09.:15:16.

Michael Sandford try to snatch a gun from a police officer to shoot

:15:17.:15:23.

Donald Trump. Absolutely horrified, my heart just beating and I burst

:15:24.:15:32.

into tears, I could not believe it. He's a very gentle, a very quiet,

:15:33.:15:37.

very loving lad. He's struggled greatly throughout his life with a

:15:38.:15:40.

variety of physical and mental health problems. But she says

:15:41.:15:45.

Michael was in a better state of mind when he travelled to the USA

:15:46.:15:49.

for a gap year when he didn't make contact for weeks, she recorded them

:15:50.:15:57.

-- him missing. He is vulnerable, he does go on the Internet, who has

:15:58.:16:04.

either had been mixing with? We now know he developed more medical

:16:05.:16:07.

problems than we realised and she has been diagnosed as having a

:16:08.:16:14.

psychotic episode at the time. A BBC documentary followed Lynn and

:16:15.:16:17.

Michael's Father Paul as they attended his sentencing in the

:16:18.:16:22.

states. He pleaded guilty to being an illegal alien in possession of a

:16:23.:16:25.

firearm and disrupting Government business. He got 12 months. The

:16:26.:16:30.

judge could clearly see he was in troubled, misguided young lad but he

:16:31.:16:36.

deserves a second chance. -- a troubled lad. From his maximum

:16:37.:16:44.

security prison, Michael is allowed 115 minute phone call PDA.

:16:45.:16:54.

-- once per day. What do you hope will happen when Michael is

:16:55.:17:05.

eventually released in May? I hope he gets to come home to his loving

:17:06.:17:09.

family. He will have a lot of clear that he still needs and medication

:17:10.:17:10.

and support and restart his life. And the documentary,

:17:11.:17:14.

The Brit Who Tried To Kill Trump is available now on the BBC iPlayer

:17:15.:17:17.

and also on BBC One Ask any working parent

:17:18.:17:21.

in the capital about the cost of childcare and they'll probably

:17:22.:17:30.

tell you how expensive it is. Now City Hall has come up

:17:31.:17:33.

with a scheme to help parents borrow a lump sum to cover

:17:34.:17:36.

a nursery deposit. It works like a season

:17:37.:17:38.

ticket loan coming out of monthly salaries,

:17:39.:17:40.

but tax free. Here's our political

:17:41.:17:42.

correspondent Karl Mercer. When you're this old, bunny ears and

:17:43.:17:52.

bubbles on a bit more important than to bank balances. But it's what

:17:53.:17:59.

happens when patrons to say to go back to work that the mayor has

:18:00.:18:03.

addressed today -- parents. He says parents need help finding a deposit

:18:04.:18:09.

for a nursery place. So he is offering loans to all workers under

:18:10.:18:12.

his control to do just that and encouraging other firms to follow

:18:13.:18:18.

suit. We know many parents face a barrier, darting a new job or

:18:19.:18:27.

returning to work. A lot of childminders charge fees and

:18:28.:18:29.

deposits in advance which can be a real barrier. any financial help,

:18:30.:18:41.

especially with twins, is amazing. It would mean that a lot of people

:18:42.:18:45.

would be struggling because you've spent all your pay and you might be

:18:46.:18:53.

able to go back to work. One of the reasons it's difficult to go back to

:18:54.:18:56.

work if you don't have the cash to pay for the deposit upfront. There's

:18:57.:19:00.

enough silly that is offering half-price discount but that's just

:19:01.:19:09.

to reserve a place. Is not doable for most families. A lot of my

:19:10.:19:12.

friends are freelancers as well and can't get the work for the ugly and

:19:13.:19:24.

then they don't have the work guaranteed -- the outlay. Deposits

:19:25.:19:40.

can be up to ?1500 but that the issue -- issue is to allow parents

:19:41.:19:55.

to stay in work. Those representing smaller firms warn about putting too

:19:56.:19:59.

much burden on the businesses themselves. Small businesses can

:20:00.:20:02.

about the cost of living in London for their staff but they also cared

:20:03.:20:05.

about the cost of doing business and even though they would get their

:20:06.:20:08.

money back eventually, the problem is finding the money up front

:20:09.:20:12.

because for many smaller businesses on tight margins, they just don't

:20:13.:20:15.

have a spear however many thousands of pounds that it would be to take

:20:16.:20:23.

part in this -- spare. the mayor hopes bigger firms will follow the

:20:24.:20:25.

lead. Next, it's one of London's

:20:26.:20:29.

most historic buildings, but you've probably never

:20:30.:20:31.

heard of it. The Charterhouse will open

:20:32.:20:33.

to the public for the first Our arts correspondent Brenda

:20:34.:20:35.

Emmanus has been taking a look. London is blessed with some hidden

:20:36.:20:51.

treasures, places and buildings tucked away from the hubbub of urban

:20:52.:20:55.

life that still make up the fabric of our history. The Charterhouse

:20:56.:20:59.

year on the east side of Smithfield is a true gem. This is the complex

:21:00.:21:06.

has been many things, a monastery, he chewed or mansion, a school and

:21:07.:21:16.

an alms house -- Tudor and it opens for the first time in several

:21:17.:21:22.

hundred years. It tells the story of London from the Black death in 1348

:21:23.:21:28.

to the present day. It was bought by a man called Walter Mani who used

:21:29.:21:34.

the ground as a pet for victims of the Black death and he then founded

:21:35.:21:38.

a monastery on the site which host 24 monks. Today the Charterhouse is

:21:39.:21:49.

home to community of milk -- male pensioners known as Brothers. Thomas

:21:50.:21:56.

Sutton was the man who founded the charity in 1611 and it's because of

:21:57.:21:59.

him the school and alms house were founded. At the time of his death,

:22:00.:22:02.

he was known as the Richard Commoner in the whole country and had started

:22:03.:22:08.

his life as a servant to the Howard and Dudley families, both wealthy

:22:09.:22:11.

Tudor dynasty is, then he made money through his coalmines in Durham and

:22:12.:22:16.

we see many remainders of his wealth and his crest around the site. --

:22:17.:22:27.

reminders. This is also used as a location for films from Downton

:22:28.:22:40.

Abbey through to Taboo starring Tom Hardy. This cloister was named after

:22:41.:22:49.

the joke of Norfolk, who built the ceiling to get to his real tennis

:22:50.:22:53.

court at the end. It was converted into a school and the boys from the

:22:54.:22:58.

Charterhouse School would play football at year. Interesting fact,

:22:59.:23:01.

it was on this spot that the offside rule as we know it was born. The

:23:02.:23:08.

principal historic buildings of the Charterhouse were damaged during the

:23:09.:23:12.

Blitz. They were restored between 1950 and 1959. The site now enters a

:23:13.:23:18.

new chapter with part of the building open to visitors. It's a

:23:19.:23:24.

really exciting phase in our history and in partnership with the Museum

:23:25.:23:27.

of London we have opened this new museum which the public can visit

:23:28.:23:30.

from Friday onwards. It tells the story of the site through the people

:23:31.:23:33.

who have lived, worked can be associated with it and it is full of

:23:34.:23:39.

institutions. Guided tours can be booked in advance and provide an

:23:45.:23:47.

insight into the role that the Charterhouse played in key moments

:23:48.:23:48.

in British history. Let's get a check on the weather

:23:49.:23:50.

and Chris Fawkes has joined us. We've had three days of faulty

:23:51.:24:07.

weather which has coast delays at airports. The fog has moved up. We

:24:08.:24:18.

have got a lot of cloud. The cloud and murkiness, there's a lot more of

:24:19.:24:25.

it to come overnight tonight from Europe and into tomorrow so don't

:24:26.:24:30.

expect to see any sunshine. There's a lot of cloud through the night

:24:31.:24:34.

which is thick enough to give us drizzle and the odd snowflake. No

:24:35.:24:38.

accumulation but it will be a cold night. Even in the centre of town,

:24:39.:24:47.

things will get quite icy tomorrow morning. A miserable day all in all.

:24:48.:24:52.

A lot of low cloud and visibility won't be too bad on account of the

:24:53.:24:55.

brisk winds but it is the winds you will most notice if you're out and

:24:56.:25:00.

about, dragging in continental air. The skydive to Brighton later but it

:25:01.:25:07.

will stay cold, temperatures just above freezing. But it will feel

:25:08.:25:11.

like it is below freezing because of the wind. A subtle change with the

:25:12.:25:15.

weather for the end of the week and on Friday, air is still coming from

:25:16.:25:19.

the south but more from the way of Biscay so things should turn milder.

:25:20.:25:23.

We are looking at showers moving from the south, still some fairly

:25:24.:25:26.

strong winds around but it won't be as cold. Nine Celsius by the end of

:25:27.:25:34.

the day and it is just showers so not heavy rain. Into the weekend, we

:25:35.:25:40.

are looking at some rain, a change to our weather pattern and we start

:25:41.:25:43.

to see the Atlantic exerting its influence. Breezy conditions for

:25:44.:25:48.

Saturday and a band of rain will be pushing its way through, followed by

:25:49.:25:52.

brighter skies in the afternoon, temperature is around 10 Celsius and

:25:53.:25:55.

it should be dry on Sunday, turning cooler and fresher. That's how the

:25:56.:25:56.

weather is shaping up. That's it for now,

:25:57.:26:00.

thanks for joining us. Plenty more on our

:26:01.:26:02.

website and on Facebook. From me and all the team here,

whatever you're up to, RADIO: 'The UK has voted to leave

:26:05.:26:07.

the European Union by 52% to 48. 'Ukip leader Nigel Farage celebrated

:26:08.:26:44.

the result, declaring that 'dawn was breaking on an

:26:45.:26:48.

independent nation.' Ugh!
