This is what's coming up tonight on BBC London.

:00:00.:00:00.

Under investigation in Shoreditch, for exam fixing -

:00:07.:00:09.

one of highest-paid teachers in the country is suspended.

:00:10.:00:13.

I am worried, specifically because I've got my kids coming to

:00:14.:00:16.

I think it's going to affect a lot of families, a lot of concerns.

:00:17.:00:20.

Other senior members of staff are also under investigation.

:00:21.:00:24.

Five extremists from Luton who tried to radicalise children in a church

:00:25.:00:30.

by supporting IS militants are jailed.

investigate how renting your home for a night, a week or longer could

be worsening the housing crisis. The headteacher at one of London's

:00:45.:01:14.

top performing academies is under investigation for possibly fixing a

:01:15.:01:19.

cat exam results. He has been suspended along with senior members

:01:20.:01:25.

of staff. Allegations were linked to GCSE results over the past two

:01:26.:01:27.

years. And the it's one of the top

:01:28.:01:27.

performing schools in the country. BBC London understands a wide

:01:28.:01:30.

investigation has been underway for some time into allegations some

:01:31.:01:34.

examinations, this year and last On a salary of around

:01:35.:01:38.

?220,000 a year, he is the We were tipped off about this last

:01:39.:01:53.

night and this morning the trust which runs this academy confirmed

:01:54.:01:57.

a number of members of staff including Mark Keary

:01:58.:02:00.

have been suspended. They say it follows

:02:01.:02:02.

an investigation into alleged misconduct

:02:03.:02:11.

into examinations, which It has caused obvious

:02:12.:02:12.

concern for parents. I am worried, specifically covers

of families, a lot of Really I am disappointed about it

:02:18.:02:21.

because my children go to With this these kind

:02:22.:02:25.

of things you can't trust the education

:02:26.:02:28.

in this kind of system. The Department for Education it told

:02:29.:02:34.

us there is no place for cheating in our schools,

:02:35.:02:37.

and while XML practice is extremely rare it

:02:38.:02:39.

is right any allegations

:02:40.:02:40.

are thoroughly investigated. Following an investigation,

:02:41.:02:42.

exam malpractice has Resulting in disciplinary

:02:43.:02:43.

action being taken. But some say a ruthless

:02:44.:02:46.

results-based system has created unbearable

:02:47.:02:47.

pressure on heads. We are aware that there seemed

:02:48.:02:49.

to be a growing number of cases where either teachers

:02:50.:02:52.

or schools are accused or found And we can't condone

:02:53.:02:55.

that but we think it's a sign of the pressure

:02:56.:03:02.

that schools are under. So that means that if you get a year

:03:03.:03:05.

group with some children who find it hard to learn, they

:03:06.:03:11.

might have special needs, it doesn't take many of those children

:03:12.:03:14.

to completely distort your results. And on the basis of

:03:15.:03:17.

those results school leaders and teachers can

:03:18.:03:21.

and do lose their jobs. Green Spring used to be

:03:22.:03:25.

Bethnal Green Academy - in 2015 three teenage pupils fled to Syria

:03:26.:03:29.

to join so-called Islamic Mark Keary was praised

:03:30.:03:31.

for his handling of the incident. The school retained its

:03:32.:03:35.

outstanding Ofsted rating. But now it is under the spotlight

:03:36.:03:37.

again, over what the Trust admits are serious allegations

:03:38.:03:40.

of possible exam fixing. This is what's still

:03:41.:03:49.

to come on the programme. A plumbing firm loses a key legal

:03:50.:03:53.

battle over the employment rights of its workers,

:03:54.:03:56.

with far-reaching consequences. There is a demand for quick action

:03:57.:04:12.

to be taken to improve safety for cyclists in

:04:13.:04:16.

London. There's a demand for quick action

:04:17.:04:17.

to be taken to improve safety for cyclists in London,

:04:18.:04:20.

after three deaths were recorded Mayor of London, Sadeeq Khan agrees

:04:21.:04:22.

something has to be done, saying millions of pounds will be

:04:23.:04:27.

invested - to do exactly that. Here's our Transport

:04:28.:04:29.

Correspondent Tom Edwards. There are flowers by the side of the

:04:30.:04:35.

road close to where a cyclist died yesterday. The words say a great

:04:36.:04:40.

father and husband, sadly missed. Ben was one of three cyclist who

:04:41.:04:47.

died over four days. Carla Morgan and Anita also died in collisions

:04:48.:04:52.

with vehicles. Again it has raised questions about is enough being done

:04:53.:04:57.

to protect cyclists. In two of these deaths there are similarities. Both

:04:58.:05:04.

involved large to vehicles, a coach and an HGV. These in particular have

:05:05.:05:09.

blindspots where they cannot see the cyclist. One eyewitness has told me

:05:10.:05:13.

that what happened here was the cyclist came off his bike when he

:05:14.:05:19.

slipped in the mud. Last year nine cyclists died in London. Millions

:05:20.:05:26.

have gone into safe or segregated infrastructure, bike tracks, not

:05:27.:05:29.

everyone likes it though. Campaigners say the mayor must now

:05:30.:05:34.

speed up plans for safer lorries with better vision and more bike

:05:35.:05:41.

lanes. On paper's the Maer commitments make sense. He wants to

:05:42.:05:45.

increase the space for cyclists, you want to make lorries safer. But we

:05:46.:05:50.

need the delivery to be accelerated. We need things to move off and that

:05:51.:05:54.

is what is important to prevent more deaths. The mayor has a scheme where

:05:55.:05:58.

only more lorries with better vision will be allowed on London roads. But

:05:59.:06:04.

it won't start until 2020. He says he will also invest ?770 million in

:06:05.:06:10.

cycling, and that includes more segregated lanes.

:06:11.:06:11.

If you have been a victim of a road accident, if you're

:06:12.:06:16.

a bereaved family member, then clearly it isn't.

:06:17.:06:18.

The reality is we have to make it far, far easier and safer to cycle.

:06:19.:06:25.

The good news is the number of people seek cycling is going up.

:06:26.:06:32.

There is an appetite for cyclists to cycle. We have to make it as safe

:06:33.:06:36.

and easy as possible. It's important. We recognise that with a

:06:37.:06:43.

growing population we have to find other ways of getting people around

:06:44.:06:46.

the city, and walking and cycling are two ways to do this. There will

:06:47.:06:50.

be a demonstration by cyclists tomorrow. They cycling and walking

:06:51.:06:53.

commission will start next week. Friends of those who died, tonight

:06:54.:06:59.

say there is time for action. -- it is time for action.

:07:00.:07:01.

Tolu Adeoye is in Edmonton, where one of the victims died

:07:02.:07:04.

earlier in the week and tributes are continuing to be paid.

:07:05.:07:10.

There are flowers here at the junction where Anita was knocked off

:07:11.:07:15.

her bike as she made her way home from work at the nearby warehouse in

:07:16.:07:20.

the early hours of Monday. She was just 30 years old row. Only recently

:07:21.:07:24.

married. Originally from Hungary. One of her colleagues has set up a

:07:25.:07:32.

just giving page which has raised over ?7,000 for funeral costs back

:07:33.:07:38.

home in Hungary. He describes her as an angel, friendly, per litre, and

:07:39.:07:43.

will be dearly missed. Her death came as the result of a suspected

:07:44.:07:48.

hit and run. Two men have been released on bail. Her colleagues

:07:49.:07:56.

said many of her fellow workers feel too scared to cycle. They want

:07:57.:08:00.

assurances from the Maer that there will be done to make roads safer to

:08:01.:08:01.

cycle. Five men have been jailed

:08:02.:08:10.

for spreading propoganda in support Undercover police recorded them

:08:11.:08:12.

praising terror attacks Children were amongst those

:08:13.:08:15.

attending their meetings held in a local church,

:08:16.:08:20.

as Ayshea Buksh reports. In the back garden of a house in

:08:21.:08:32.

Bedfordshire a group of men celebrate an unusual anniversary.

:08:33.:08:35.

Around 80 people including children gathered inside a marquee a year on

:08:36.:08:42.

from the declaration from so-called Islamic State. It was man of many

:08:43.:08:47.

meetings held by a local Islamists group in Luton and captured on

:08:48.:08:50.

camera by an undercover police officer. The five men who organised

:08:51.:08:56.

the meetings have now been jailed for encouraging support of a banned

:08:57.:09:01.

terrorist organisation. In his summing up the judge spoke of the

:09:02.:09:04.

need to punish the men and deter others. He said although they did

:09:05.:09:09.

not pose a significant risk of harm to the public, they had close

:09:10.:09:12.

associates who were involved in acts of terror and the speeches they made

:09:13.:09:17.

and meetings they held were highly influential on young minds. While

:09:18.:09:21.

listening to the judge, one of the men held his head in his hand while

:09:22.:09:28.

others at times smiled, one even laughed. That man was the group

:09:29.:09:32.

leader, Mohammed Alamgir, who was sentenced to 60 is. He was described

:09:33.:09:38.

by the judge as dangerous and deeply committed to a jihadi mindset. His

:09:39.:09:42.

deputy was said to be highly intelligent and also committed to

:09:43.:09:48.

extreme Islamists leafs. The men led the Luton chapter. He is currently

:09:49.:09:56.

in Belmarsh prison, the man who started it,. Their spiritual leader

:09:57.:10:05.

is in prison in Lebanon on terrorism charges. Meetings were also attended

:10:06.:10:10.

by two men jailed last year for plotting to kill an American

:10:11.:10:14.

soldier. The judge praised the undercover policeman who infiltrated

:10:15.:10:18.

the group and both the Met and Bedfordshire forces who led the

:10:19.:10:22.

investigation. But though for those working in Luton's Muslim community

:10:23.:10:26.

this decision highlights the need for more grassroots work. The

:10:27.:10:33.

community is looking for guidance, looking for reassurance, and looking

:10:34.:10:39.

for support from institutions. And those institutions will be local,

:10:40.:10:44.

local council, local councillors. As these men start their present time,

:10:45.:10:50.

counterterrorism unit say they will continue to target anyone with

:10:51.:10:52.

extreme views. A plumber from Dartford

:10:53.:10:54.

has had his victory against London's Pimlico Plumbers

:10:55.:10:56.

upheld by the Court of Appeal - which means he's entitled

:10:57.:10:58.

to basic workers' rights - even though he's employed

:10:59.:11:01.

as a freelance plumber. Gary Smith had already won

:11:02.:11:03.

a tribunal hearing into his case, but today's decision at the Court

:11:04.:11:06.

of Appeal - could have far reaching consequences for others too,

:11:07.:11:09.

as John Moylan explains. Pimlico Plumbers is one

:11:10.:11:13.

of London's best-known firms. It is claimed that plumbers

:11:14.:11:16.

here can earn more than But they are also employed,

:11:17.:11:19.

so they don't have the But when Gary Smith

:11:20.:11:24.

took the firm to an employment tribunal it found that

:11:25.:11:32.

his employment status amounted to that of a worker, legally entitling

:11:33.:11:35.

him to basic rights including The tribunal found that he

:11:36.:11:37.

was a worker because he provided a personal service

:11:38.:11:42.

to Pimlico Plumbers. They control him, he had

:11:43.:11:45.

to wear the uniform, he had to drive their van, and he was

:11:46.:11:48.

tightly controlled by Pimlico Self-employment has soared in recent

:11:49.:11:51.

years, with many people juggling several insecure jobs,

:11:52.:12:04.

what some call the gig economy. And tribunals have ruled

:12:05.:12:08.

against high-profile businesses, including Uber and CitySprint,

:12:09.:12:16.

saying their business models which rely

:12:17.:12:17.

on the self-employed are denying The Government has

:12:18.:12:20.

launched a review of The founder of Pimlico Plumbers says

:12:21.:12:23.

that Mr Smith wanted to have his This is a contract that we had

:12:24.:12:27.

with Gary six years ago on a self-employed basis,

:12:28.:12:32.

that was up to their word approved by the Inland Revenue,

:12:33.:12:35.

approved by accountants and Gary was getting all the benefits

:12:36.:12:36.

from being self-employed. Six years down the line he

:12:37.:12:40.

unfortunately had a heart attack and then wanted the benefits

:12:41.:12:42.

of being an employee. This is the highest court yet

:12:43.:12:44.

to tackle the controversial issue of employment status,

:12:45.:12:48.

but it will not be the last. There are a number of

:12:49.:12:54.

legal cases pending, and more about to be launched, which

:12:55.:12:56.

looks set to challenge firms over how they treat people

:12:57.:12:59.

in the so-called gig economy. A military historian has been jailed

:13:00.:13:14.

for two years for the theft of a Second World War logbook belonging

:13:15.:13:22.

to a late dambusters airmen. The logbook which belonged to an RAF

:13:23.:13:28.

Sergeant was led by his widow for research. It has not been recovered.

:13:29.:13:30.

London Fire Brigade London Fire Brigade has warned

:13:31.:13:37.

the public NOT to walk on ice after a woman was pictured crawling

:13:38.:13:44.

towards her dog over frozen water. It happened on Connaught

:13:45.:13:47.

Water in Chingford. London Fire and Rescue said

:13:48.:13:49.

it was "incredibly risky", adding that the woman

:13:50.:13:51.

could have died of hypothermia Scientists at the National Physical

:13:52.:13:53.

Laboratory in Teddington have been awarded a huge grant

:13:54.:13:57.

by Cancer Research UK to work on a project

:13:58.:13:59.

which delivers a "map" of cancers. It'll allow researchers to visualise

:14:00.:14:02.

tumours in unprecedented detail - giving them further clues

:14:03.:14:05.

about the disease. Sarah Harris has been to the Lab

:14:06.:14:07.

to see how it works. cancer free. Marie from West London

:14:08.:14:23.

are so grateful to the research that led to her treatment for a breast

:14:24.:14:27.

tumour that she has been running to raise money for the charity ever

:14:28.:14:34.

sense. I just make the most of being here, and how lucky I am, and I

:14:35.:14:37.

honestly think it is because of the trials, the new drugs, and

:14:38.:14:42.

everything else. And the scanners as well. They are amazing. And this is

:14:43.:14:47.

where some of the money raised by Marie and thousands of others goes.

:14:48.:14:50.

Invented by London scientists, the only one of its kind

:14:51.:14:55.

anywhere in the world. And with ?16 million worth

:14:56.:14:59.

of the National Physical Laboratory in Teddington, researchers believe

:15:00.:15:01.

they are making big steps forward in the march

:15:02.:15:03.

against cancer. responded to the challenge that

:15:04.:15:05.

Cancer Research UK set out. They needed a

:15:06.:15:08.

way of mapping in molecular So we have developed

:15:09.:15:10.

methods and instruments This tumour image is seen

:15:11.:15:24.

in the kind of detail not previously They say it is a pivotal

:15:25.:15:30.

time to be working We are certainly at an exciting

:15:31.:15:34.

point in cancer research today and it is because of research

:15:35.:15:39.

that two in four people survive However we want to accelerate

:15:40.:15:42.

that progress and see three in four people surviving

:15:43.:15:47.

the disease by 2034. this really will help

:15:48.:15:51.

us beat cancer sooner. Marie says she will keep running to

:15:52.:16:05.

raise money for cancer Research. Much of the Pioneer will work on

:16:06.:16:11.

tumour scanning is carried out by London scientists, leading the way

:16:12.:16:15.

in making such a devastating disease treatable.

:16:16.:16:16.

Hollywood star Kiana Reeves on his new film and his links to OS X.

:16:17.:16:31.

It's called "homesharing", and it allows a spare room

:16:32.:16:33.

or your whole property to be let out for a night, a week or longer.

:16:34.:16:38.

And it's become so common in London that it's led to fears of it

:16:39.:16:42.

worsening the housing crisis by taking away entire homes

:16:43.:16:46.

Now there are calls for tougher laws, as Guy Lynn

:16:47.:16:51.

Peter is welcoming tourists to stay overnight in his King's Cross flat.

:16:52.:17:00.

He is chocker with bookings from Airbnb,

:17:01.:17:04.

which lets travellers book people's homes rather than

:17:05.:17:08.

When you are taking on short-term tenants you are probably getting

:17:09.:17:13.

something like double the rental that you would have done from a

:17:14.:17:16.

Great for him and his guests but what about the

:17:17.:17:19.

New figures obtained from an independent website, which are not

:17:20.:17:34.

always recognised, show the spread and scale. For homes on a B on

:17:35.:17:44.

just one day in January. Increases in places like Brent and Lewisham to

:17:45.:17:48.

nearly 6000 and thousands and thousands closer to London's tourist

:17:49.:17:53.

attractions, Hackney, Camden, Westminster. More than 27,000 on

:17:54.:18:01.

just one day alone. Overall a small percentage but affecting some areas

:18:02.:18:05.

disproportionately like Kensington and Chelsea where

:18:06.:18:07.

Daniel is struggling to find somewhere to rent

:18:08.:18:09.

All the properties are overpriced - can't really afford it.

:18:10.:18:12.

I'm pretty outraged about that because young people here are

:18:13.:18:14.

looking for properties for the first time, they are going to the tourists

:18:15.:18:17.

The population rising, more than 1 million people

:18:18.:18:23.

added in London in the last ten years, and only 20,000 built so we

:18:24.:18:32.

It used to be illegal to short-let without

:18:33.:18:36.

planning permission, but the

:18:37.:18:39.

government changed the law to allow Londoners

:18:40.:18:40.

to do, so but only up to a

:18:41.:18:42.

But the new 90-day rule was being widely ignored

:18:43.:18:50.

and Siddique Khan put pressure on websites to crack down on offenders.

:18:51.:18:58.

So Mohammed Alamgir made a dramatic announcement. -- Airbnb maiden at a

:18:59.:19:07.

dramatic announcement. From this spring, home lets

:19:08.:19:12.

that total more than 90 We asked five of

:19:13.:19:15.

Airbnb's competitors like HomeAway and TripAdvisor

:19:16.:19:17.

if they would automatically crack We were told no, it was

:19:18.:19:19.

down to the landlord. Some landlords said they just ignore

:19:20.:19:23.

the rules altogether and We asked all of London's

:19:24.:19:26.

councils about Seven said it was not enough

:19:27.:19:29.

and more still needs to be done to tackle

:19:30.:19:32.

the growth of short-term lets. It's simply not enough, we need

:19:33.:19:34.

the government to act on this point, we need legislation

:19:35.:19:38.

which bans short-term letting, we need to follow the example

:19:39.:19:42.

of New York and Berlin, who have effectively

:19:43.:19:44.

banned short-term lets. But further lets would be

:19:45.:19:47.

unpopular here even in a city grappling with an acute

:19:48.:19:53.

affordable housing shortage. And you can see more on that story

:19:54.:19:57.

on Inside Out London. That's on Monday

:19:58.:20:04.

at 7:30pm on BBC One. Football, and these

:20:05.:20:08.

are worrying times Despite a change of manager

:20:09.:20:09.

there still hasn't been And with the team currently

:20:10.:20:12.

in the relegation zone, Emma Jones has been finding

:20:13.:20:16.

out if there's time A chirpy Sam Allardyce

:20:17.:20:19.

at his press conference today. But it hasn't been a happy start

:20:20.:20:26.

to life as Palace manager - just one league win since he took

:20:27.:20:29.

over at the end of last year means the team are in

:20:30.:20:32.

the relegation zone. At the moment there's a lot

:20:33.:20:35.

of negativity around about us so you got to keep yourself focused

:20:36.:20:38.

on here and what we are doing here. That will help you

:20:39.:20:44.

to turn the corner. My disappointment is

:20:45.:20:46.

the fact that I haven't been able to give others

:20:47.:20:54.

many good results as I expected when I walked in here.

:20:55.:20:57.

One of Palace's biggest problems is the struggle to

:20:58.:20:59.

On Saturday they were losing 4-0 by half-time against Sunderland.

:21:00.:21:06.

One fan tried to confront a player on

:21:07.:21:08.

Others expressed their views from the stands.

:21:09.:21:12.

COMMENTATOR: "You're not fit to wear the shirt" reverberates around

:21:13.:21:15.

Could the fan speed using patients not just with their

:21:16.:21:19.

It's taking a little time for the Palace fans to warm to Sam

:21:20.:21:25.

Other managers have come in, they've had their names

:21:26.:21:28.

But Sam's been a bit slow on the uptake and of course

:21:29.:21:41.

But they are a fickle bunch, a couple of wins or

:21:42.:21:45.

But after another disappointing result

:21:46.:21:47.

on Saturday, co-chairman Steve Parrish went into the dressing room

:21:48.:21:50.

And he had every right to go and tell the players what he thought.

:21:51.:21:57.

We know that so much in the Premier League.

:21:58.:22:01.

And for me it was the right thing to do - go in,

:22:02.:22:04.

tell the players what he thought - they've got to buck their ideas up.

:22:05.:22:07.

Perhaps one of their new players can make a difference.

:22:08.:22:10.

The club spent an estimated ?40 million on four new signings in

:22:11.:22:13.

It has worked for big Sam before, he's never been relegated.

:22:14.:22:16.

But when will we see that victory dance again?

:22:17.:22:21.

Hollywood heart-throb, Keanu Reeves is in town for the UK

:22:22.:22:24.

Premiere of his latest film 'John Wick, Chapter 2'.

:22:25.:22:28.

It's on the big screen in Leicester Square tonight -

:22:29.:22:31.

a place where Reeves is very at home, because of his

:22:32.:22:35.

A few minutes ago, Wendy Hurrell spoke to him, but first let's take

:22:36.:22:39.

If you don't do this, you know the consequences.

:22:40.:22:55.

So you are reunited with Laurence Fishburne, your old Matrix buddy? It

:22:56.:23:17.

was incredible to get the chance to work with him again. It was really

:23:18.:23:22.

cool to hear that he likes the film, the first one, so I met with him, he

:23:23.:23:26.

asked if there was anything he could do. The director sent him the script

:23:27.:23:34.

and it was really great to work with him. And great to see you together

:23:35.:23:39.

again. And the other link with the matrix was the director used to be

:23:40.:23:48.

your stunt double! Yes! He was the double in the matrix trilogy. Then

:23:49.:23:55.

he went on to stunt choreography and action design and John Wick was his

:23:56.:23:58.

first film. Chapter two is his second film. As a result, all the

:23:59.:24:06.

action looks exhausting. He works you hide! Well he likes to beat up

:24:07.:24:11.

John Wick and that gives me the opportunity to bounce back. John

:24:12.:24:15.

Wick is fighting for his life and the action in the film is pretty

:24:16.:24:20.

extraordinary and it is very great to have the opportunity to try to do

:24:21.:24:25.

as much as I can and connect the drama and the action of the

:24:26.:24:29.

character and be there to communicate it to the audience. And

:24:30.:24:35.

you are half English I believe? My mother is English. So is a little

:24:36.:24:38.

bit of you coming home when you come here? It does. I always like to come

:24:39.:24:44.

to London. I have some friends here so that makes it even more special.

:24:45.:24:49.

It's really exciting to have the Premier here this evening. It's a

:24:50.:24:55.

good day. I am grateful. It has been lovely to talk to you.

:24:56.:24:57.

We saw some snow earlier. We've even had its settling over the Chilterns.

:24:58.:25:17.

Reports of settling slow in places like high Wycombe. That is going to

:25:18.:25:23.

be the theme for the week ahead. This wonderful picture behind me is

:25:24.:25:27.

how the skies have been the last few days. No sunshine and it will rain

:25:28.:25:31.

like this into the weekend. This evening and overnight we will

:25:32.:25:35.

continue to see wintry showers. We could see dusting of snow over the

:25:36.:25:40.

South Downs. There are yellow warning is in force for Kent and

:25:41.:25:45.

into Sussex. But it will be London and into the Chilterns where we will

:25:46.:25:50.

see snow. Tomorrow it will remain cold with further wintry showers.

:25:51.:25:54.

They may even be down to lower levels in the morning and through

:25:55.:25:59.

the afternoon it looks like it will be rain at lower levels with snow to

:26:00.:26:04.

the higher ground. So probably just reserved for the South Towers and

:26:05.:26:09.

the Chilterns. The wind is getting even stronger as we head into

:26:10.:26:13.

Sunday. That feature brings heavy snow showers to central northern

:26:14.:26:18.

parts of the UK. But for asked it is a mixture of rain, sleet and snow

:26:19.:26:24.

showers, with the hills across the South and the Chilterns seeing the

:26:25.:26:27.

worst of that sleet and snow with rain down to lower levels. Sorry

:26:28.:26:32.

about the graphics, we're having some issues. The temperatures will

:26:33.:26:39.

be five or 6 degrees. Adding in the strong easterly wind it will not

:26:40.:26:44.

feel like that. Monday will be dry with some sunshine and the wind will

:26:45.:26:49.

come from the east or South easterly direction. As we head into the rest

:26:50.:26:54.

of the week we will start to pick up southerly winds so the temperature

:26:55.:26:57.

slowly creeping up around the middle of the week.

:26:58.:26:59.

Now for a reminder of Friday's main BBC news headlines:

:27:00.:27:02.

The Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, says it's "completely

:27:03.:27:04.

unacceptable" that some patients in England are waiting

:27:05.:27:06.

Figures show that waiting times are worse than at any time

:27:07.:27:11.

A ?60 million Government investigation

:27:12.:27:16.

into allegations of abuse by Iraq war veterans is to be shut down.

:27:17.:27:21.

It follows a report by MPs which called the work of

:27:22.:27:24.

the Iraq Historic Allegations Team an "unmitigated failure".

:27:25.:27:31.

If you can, join me again at 10:30pm this evening

:27:32.:27:34.

If you can't - join me tomorrow for the weekend

:27:35.:27:39.
