into London's biggest ever mega basement.

And on the hunt for the elusive urban hedgehog, the wildlife cameras

:01:04.:01:05.

Good evening and a very warm welcome to the programme.

:01:06.:01:20.

It was four weeks ago today that one man died and ten people

:01:21.:01:23.

were injured in a terrorist attack near Finsbury Park mosque,

:01:24.:01:27.

in what the head of the Met Police said "was quite clearly

:01:28.:01:30.

Today, the mosque's chairman has called for stronger

:01:31.:01:34.

He says that since the attack they've received a surge

:01:35.:01:39.

All this, as the community there tries to heal and recover

:01:40.:01:44.

Katharine Carpenter is there this evening.

:01:45.:01:56.

This area was extremely busy on that night for weeks ago, it was Ramadan

:01:57.:02:03.

and Muslims had spilled out onto the streets from the welfare centre down

:02:04.:02:06.

the road and be mosque around the corner following evening prayers and

:02:07.:02:10.

it was here on this quiet side street that a van careered into a

:02:11.:02:16.

group of people and one man died. A man, 47-year-old Darren Osborne, has

:02:17.:02:21.

been charged on terrorism related murder and attempted murder, but

:02:22.:02:24.

there is still a great deal of healing to be done here. Our

:02:25.:02:30.

colleague has spoken to two of those who were caught up in the events of

:02:31.:02:31.

This man was among the worshippers leaving the mosque that night.

:02:32.:02:35.

One of his friends had collapsed and they were treating him

:02:36.:02:38.

When I found myself on the ground, I thought, I'm OK.

:02:39.:02:43.

So I see one of the guys bleeding on his head,

:02:44.:02:46.

the other one was lying down there, the people were making noise

:02:47.:02:49.

I realised I hit, but I thought, I'm OK.

:02:50.:02:58.

So as I was trying to stand up, I fell down, my legs

:02:59.:03:03.

There was a lot of chaos, a lot of worry and a lot

:03:04.:03:14.

Everybody was so scared at what happened.

:03:15.:03:21.

Crazy, it was loud, it was unorganised, it was...

:03:22.:03:25.

Everyone was emotional and it was tough for people,

:03:26.:03:29.

Sadiq Yusuf saw it happen and did his best to help.

:03:30.:03:35.

The late Makram Ali was literally on the floor.

:03:36.:03:42.

There was a guy still underneath the van.

:03:43.:03:45.

Luckily, there was a lot of people who came out the restaurants,

:03:46.:03:49.

the houses nearby and lifted the van up so we could get one

:03:50.:03:52.

Some people were conscious, some people were unconscious.

:03:53.:03:58.

This tiny culdasac, just round the corner from the mosque,

:03:59.:04:00.

And in the immediate aftermath, this whole area was closed down

:04:01.:04:04.

as the emergency services tried to bring things under control.

:04:05.:04:07.

It feels like life is kind of back to normal, but under the surface

:04:08.:04:11.

this is still a community trying to come to terms with what happened.

:04:12.:04:15.

This is one council at least which has risen to the challenge.

:04:16.:04:19.

Islington council have done an amazing job for the victims,

:04:20.:04:21.

from housing to counselling to mental health, to travel to social,

:04:22.:04:26.

Our community, my advice to them, my message to them is - be united.

:04:27.:04:38.

Because we've all got one beautiful thing, which is peace.

:04:39.:04:42.

Powerful testimonies. Victim support workers are going to go into the

:04:43.:05:00.

mosque for the first time next week. As well as the physical and mental

:05:01.:05:04.

scars of this attack, the chairman of the mosque told me earlier today

:05:05.:05:09.

he is also having to deal with the huge increase in Islamophobic hate

:05:10.:05:13.

crime. According to official Met figures in the weeks before the

:05:14.:05:18.

attack on Manchester there were 17 on average Islamophobic hate crimes

:05:19.:05:21.

reported across London, but there was a spike following the London

:05:22.:05:31.

Bridge attack, with 117 hate crimes reported that week alone. And

:05:32.:05:34.

perhaps the most surprising thing is that figure has not decreased

:05:35.:05:36.

dramatically, so in the weeks following the attack here, there

:05:37.:05:39.

were an average 81 hate crimes reported. Earlier, the chairman of

:05:40.:05:42.

the mosque told me enough is enough and he wants action taken.

:05:43.:05:46.

It's a quite large file, yeah. Unfortunately it's not the only one.

:05:47.:05:49.

A file full of poisonous words, vitriol against muslims

:05:50.:05:51.

The chairman of Finsbury Park mosque says at least one a week

:05:52.:05:55.

When people send us a letter saying that this is the beginning,

:05:56.:06:00.

what's happening in Finsbury Park is the beginning,

:06:01.:06:04.

you will have a river of blood, for example, and we'll make

:06:05.:06:08.

sure you will get hurt and your community get hurt.

:06:09.:06:13.

Expect bombs and other things in your centres, which is very

:06:14.:06:17.

Out in the community, Miriam feels it, too.

:06:18.:06:23.

Well, there's been incidents of people having their headscarves

:06:24.:06:25.

They're having abuse shouted at them and all sorts of nasty things.

:06:26.:06:32.

Do you think there's anything that can be done

:06:33.:06:37.

to reassure people round here? Definitely.

:06:38.:06:39.

I mean, I think there definitely has to be a stronger police presence,

:06:40.:06:42.

The community has been so fantastic already anyway,

:06:43.:06:46.

in terms of solidarity and just helping everyone come together.

:06:47.:06:50.

She says there need to be stronger deterrants, too.

:06:51.:06:53.

A subject the chairman of the mosque says he discussed

:06:54.:06:55.

with the Prime Minister when she visited on the day of the attack.

:06:56.:06:59.

His priorities are tougher penalties for those found guilty of hate crime

:07:00.:07:03.

and more vigorous investigations by the police.

:07:04.:07:06.

We are not asking to catch every perpetrator who sends a letter

:07:07.:07:10.

or something like that, because we know it is impossible,

:07:11.:07:13.

but we expect something to be done about some of these letters

:07:14.:07:17.

and to get to the bottom of it and find out who is behind it.

:07:18.:07:21.

We take Islamaphobic hate crime and all kinds of hate

:07:22.:07:23.

We allocate cases to experienced detectives and they do

:07:24.:07:29.

whatever they can, in terms of their investigative abilities,

:07:30.:07:34.

to support the victim, to chase the suspect, and, again,

:07:35.:07:38.

But amid the sadness during these last four weeks,

:07:39.:07:43.

The small handprints of children offering messages of comfort

:07:44.:07:49.

In the last few minutes, we have had a statement from the Home Office

:07:50.:08:05.

will told us they have given ?1 million to help mosques improve

:08:06.:08:08.

their security, that was two weeks ago. It sounds like they are moving

:08:09.:08:14.

towards greater penalties for these hate crimes. They have asked her to

:08:15.:08:20.

assess the police response, to make sure it is dealt with effectively

:08:21.:08:24.

and efficiently and we are working with the CPS and the courts to

:08:25.:08:29.

ensure all those who commit hate crimes receive heavier sentences. I

:08:30.:08:35.

think tonight is going to be about reflection and remembrance here.

:08:36.:08:39.

Indeed, for weeks on from that Finsbury Park terror attack,

:08:40.:08:40.

Catherine, many thanks indeed. You're watching BBC London News,

:08:41.:08:42.

coming up later in the programme: He's one of London's most famous

:08:43.:08:45.

black entrepreneurs, We talk to Levi Roots about food,

:08:46.:08:47.

music and inspiring others. And two fine days and

:08:48.:08:55.

a thunderstorm, so the saying goes. Today's been fine, tomorrow will be

:08:56.:08:58.

fine, so does that mean There are fears that stress

:08:59.:09:00.

and exhaustion among bus drivers in the capital

:09:01.:09:14.

is contributing to a rise in the number of crashes on our roads.

:09:15.:09:16.

That's according to a new report. 25 people have been

:09:17.:09:21.

killed either on or by Now there are calls

:09:22.:09:24.

for new safety targets. Just to warn you, you might find

:09:25.:09:30.

the pictures at the beginning Here's our Transport

:09:31.:09:33.

Correspondent Tom Edwards. This man is just moments

:09:34.:09:37.

away from the impact. The bus, in Beckton,

:09:38.:09:40.

severely injured the pedestrian. Here, a bus mounted a pavement.

:09:41.:09:45.

Again, people were injured. Today, reports said the capital's

:09:46.:09:50.

buses could be made much safer. Ten years ago, Sarah Hope's mother

:09:51.:09:54.

died after being hit by a bus. Her daughter lost her leg

:09:55.:09:58.

in the same incident. She wants operators to reduce

:09:59.:10:01.

the stress on drivers. We had a terrible incident

:10:02.:10:06.

in our family and it was caused by a bus driver having road rage,

:10:07.:10:09.

which is unforgivable and it must But since that happened

:10:10.:10:13.

and since I've been working on my campaign to help bus drivers,

:10:14.:10:18.

I have learnt quite a lot about the stresses

:10:19.:10:23.

and strains they're under. And I think we need to really think

:10:24.:10:27.

about them and what they actually physically do every day,

:10:28.:10:31.

which is more than driving a bus. 25 people have been killed

:10:32.:10:34.

on or by buses in the last two Today, a report found an emphasis

:10:35.:10:37.

on punctuality over safety, with drivers facing long hours

:10:38.:10:43.

which compromises their ability. One thing is making sure

:10:44.:10:49.

that the contracts incentivise safety as well as punctuality,

:10:50.:10:52.

but also we need to make sure Transport for London's

:10:53.:10:56.

own management have in their bonus But we need to make sure the life

:10:57.:10:59.

of drivers is better and that means making sure they can

:11:00.:11:04.

have their meal breaks, it means making sure they don't

:11:05.:11:06.

drive for 16 hours at a time, because if they're tired,

:11:07.:11:09.

they may make mistakes. In extreme cases, this incident

:11:10.:11:11.

shows the behaviour from passengers drivers also sometimes

:11:12.:11:18.

have to deal with. And bus driving is one

:11:19.:11:21.

of the most stressful transport Joanne Harris has been

:11:22.:11:24.

a driver for ten years. Most drivers are doing 12 hour days

:11:25.:11:29.

and then getting forced overtime You've got 13 and a half

:11:30.:11:34.

hours of all that stress, It's not a good combination

:11:35.:11:39.

for road safety. TFL welcomes the recommendations

:11:40.:11:44.

and says it is taking It's aiming for no deaths

:11:45.:11:47.

involving a bus by 2030. But campaigners are calling

:11:48.:11:54.

for much quicker action. A zero-tolerance approach

:11:55.:12:00.

to acid attacks. That's what the Mayor

:12:01.:12:03.

of London is calling for after the recent

:12:04.:12:05.

spate of assaults. The number in the capital has

:12:06.:12:07.

doubled in the last two years. One victim, who had acid

:12:08.:12:11.

squirted in face and eyes, has been speaking to BBC London

:12:12.:12:14.

about his ordeal and what can be There are some flashing images in

:12:15.:12:17.

this report. They started pushing me about and

:12:18.:12:37.

giving the racial abuse. This father of five was attacked with acid in

:12:38.:12:41.

November last year while in his car. Minutes after he thought he had

:12:42.:12:44.

avoided a fight here with a large group of young men and boys. Minutes

:12:45.:12:50.

later he ran into two of them again. I try to beat my window up but they

:12:51.:12:54.

got to my car. One of them had a bottle of Lucozade on him. As I have

:12:55.:13:02.

looked, he has literally just threw it onto my face, I could not see

:13:03.:13:07.

anything straightaway. I was in pain. It was burning. This is how he

:13:08.:13:17.

looked at the time, but he says his excellent physical recovery is

:13:18.:13:20.

deceptive. It's not physical, it is mental. I can't get it out my head,

:13:21.:13:28.

even now, it is still there. I get flashbacks, nightmares. Following

:13:29.:13:31.

five acid attacks in less than an hour and a half last week, Sadiq

:13:32.:13:36.

Khan called for a zero tolerance approach. We should be talking about

:13:37.:13:41.

life sentences in appropriate circumstances. We should be looking

:13:42.:13:45.

at sentences were people have used acid as a life threatening weapon.

:13:46.:13:50.

But has not happened in this man's case. He says his attacker is still

:13:51.:13:58.

on the streets. Staring at me, smiling at me. Simply, he is

:13:59.:14:03.

laughing at me. Why is the laughing at me? Because he got away with it,

:14:04.:14:08.

simple. I could have done something myself, but I've got kids. That's

:14:09.:14:12.

the only thing that stops me. It should be classed as attempted

:14:13.:14:17.

murder instead of GBH or GBH with intent. Sadly, an agonised increase

:14:18.:14:23.

in cases like his means that debate is now taking place.

:14:24.:14:28.

On that note, tonight MPs are going to debate exactly how to crack down

:14:29.:14:34.

on those who carry out acid attacks. Victoria has more on this and joins

:14:35.:14:40.

us. This debate has been called by the London MP Stephen Timms. Last

:14:41.:14:44.

week balls attacks took place in his constituency of East Ham. There has

:14:45.:14:48.

been significant movement on this over the weekend, we heard from the

:14:49.:14:51.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd saying there would be a review into the

:14:52.:14:54.

issue of acid attacks overall. It will look at things whether judges

:14:55.:14:58.

have significant sentencing powers to deal with this sort of crime. New

:14:59.:15:03.

guidance for police officers so they can better deal with potential

:15:04.:15:05.

perpetrators and prevent this kind of thing happening. Stephen Timms

:15:06.:15:11.

has tabled this for 10pm. There are several things he believes can be

:15:12.:15:16.

done to stem the tide. Legislation is key. He wants to see somebody who

:15:17.:15:21.

is card-carrying acid treated in the same way as somebody caught carrying

:15:22.:15:24.

a knife. It is automatically regard as a crime, at the moment it has to

:15:25.:15:28.

be with intent if you're card-carrying acid. At the moment,

:15:29.:15:34.

somebody who is an acid attacker can be given a life sentence under GBH

:15:35.:15:40.

with intent, but there is a huge variation in highly these sentences

:15:41.:15:43.

handed down and Stephen Timms thinks that needs to change.

:15:44.:15:44.

The Home Secretary, over the weekend, said

:15:45.:15:46.

that she was going to review the sentences where people

:15:47.:15:48.

I think we need tougher sentences and I think we need more

:15:49.:15:53.

consistent sentencing, because although sometimes life

:15:54.:15:56.

sentences have been used, other times really very small

:15:57.:16:00.

I think we need some consistency and the guidelines

:16:01.:16:04.

He also says there are other things that can be done to try and reduce

:16:05.:16:18.

the number of attacks? This is very much a new supply side. Seals on the

:16:19.:16:25.

most concentrated sulphuric acid would need a license to buy that.

:16:26.:16:30.

Age restrictions for those wanting to buy sulphuric acid or products

:16:31.:16:35.

with sulphuric acid in. This has the support of the British Retail

:16:36.:16:38.

Consortium who said they would back licences for people. But one key

:16:39.:16:42.

thing is there is not enough research at the moment into why

:16:43.:16:45.

these attacks are being carried out, is it for robberies, is it a hate

:16:46.:16:49.

crime? Who is carrying it out and white? And all that evidence comes

:16:50.:16:52.

and it is hard to have a targeted approach to dealing with this

:16:53.:16:53.

problem. Victoria, many thanks. People living near the Grenfell

:16:54.:16:57.

Tower in North Kensington are to receive assurances

:16:58.:16:59.

about the safety and stability Letters have been sent out today,

:17:00.:17:01.

after a range of experts Scaffolding, including netting,

:17:02.:17:05.

may go up around the tower in the future, but only

:17:06.:17:10.

after consultations with survivors. Next: Could this be the mega

:17:11.:17:19.

basement to end all mega basements? Developers are promising

:17:20.:17:22.

a new public park next to Heathrow, if they're allowed to dig out

:17:23.:17:24.

three million tonnes It promises to create a subterranean

:17:25.:17:27.

space the size of two Let's find out more

:17:28.:17:31.

from Gareth Furby, It sounds very bold. Yes, at the

:17:32.:17:49.

moment this is a cornfield, but soon if things go according to plan this

:17:50.:17:53.

could be the site of perhaps the biggest ever mega basement. We are

:17:54.:17:58.

familiar with basement development across London but the ice more, even

:17:59.:18:02.

though the cost millions of pounds. With this, we are talking about a

:18:03.:18:06.

site of 40 football pitches and above ground while a new park,

:18:07.:18:11.

that's going to be the size of Green Park combined with St James's Park.

:18:12.:18:15.

Joining me now is the architect behind this. What are you planning

:18:16.:18:22.

to put down there? Warehousing and distribution but also long-term

:18:23.:18:25.

storage for art, museums, we have been talking to the local academy

:18:26.:18:32.

about gymnasiums and swimming pools. Why so big? It is the consequence of

:18:33.:18:38.

the mining strategy, we are secretly and silently removing the gravels

:18:39.:18:41.

underneath the park. Instead of beating landfill back we're getting

:18:42.:18:47.

basement is back. Could this set a precedent for other green belt

:18:48.:18:50.

areas? Is this an idea to develop green belt land? The current

:18:51.:18:54.

pressures on London are housing and many of the industrial site are now

:18:55.:18:57.

been freed up for housing. There will be a point when the

:18:58.:19:00.

infrastructure and the industrial site me to go somewhere and maybe

:19:01.:19:04.

this is a precedent. What do local people think about this? We have

:19:05.:19:06.

talked to some today. Parking is good,

:19:07.:19:07.

warehouses are not good. At the moment, it's just

:19:08.:19:09.

used to dump rubbish in. So I'd be glad if they done

:19:10.:19:14.

something with it. It's good that it'll

:19:15.:19:17.

come to some use. If you're going to park up there,

:19:18.:19:19.

warehouse downstairs, Not the best things,

:19:20.:19:21.

anyway, you know? Some people are unhappy about a

:19:22.:19:41.

possible clash between lorries using the warehouse space and people using

:19:42.:19:47.

the park. This is an enormous part, almost 1.2 kilometres from end to

:19:48.:19:53.

end. It is combining recreation, ecology and connecting communities.

:19:54.:19:56.

Those key infrastructural roots go into the basement underground,

:19:57.:20:02.

making those key connections between committees. You want the gravel for

:20:03.:20:09.

runway three, you want the warehouse for a bigger airport? This project

:20:10.:20:12.

has been a revolution for almost eight years and are really be for

:20:13.:20:17.

the top of runway three even made the recent press headlines. I think

:20:18.:20:21.

we are talking about a long-term vision for London. Thank you. Will

:20:22.:20:26.

it happen? It is all going to be planners and it will take about 15

:20:27.:20:30.

years to complete. Gareth, thanks very much.

:20:31.:20:31.

They're becoming more and more elusive in London.

:20:32.:20:33.

Now, wildlife experts are trying to record their numbers.

:20:34.:20:36.

So, you may have spotted something rather unusual in our parks -

:20:37.:20:40.

secret camera-traps, hidden in the trees designed

:20:41.:20:42.

And as Victoria Cook reports, it didn't turn out quite as planned!

:20:43.:20:50.

In the depths of Highgate Woods, scientists from the Zoological

:20:51.:20:53.

I've come out with them today to see what their hidden cameras have

:20:54.:20:59.

Looking to see what sort of wildlife is living

:21:00.:21:04.

These cameras are designed to photograph anything that

:21:05.:21:09.

The scientists are really hoping to find hedgehogs here.

:21:10.:21:14.

But, as we soon discover, it seems London's other animals have

:21:15.:21:19.

Lots of squirrels and birds, no hedgehogs so far, sadly.

:21:20.:21:33.

Maybe this one's captured the elusive hedgehog.

:21:34.:21:38.

I'm not going to be disappointed yet.

:21:39.:21:42.

I'm optimistic that we'll find some hedgehogs here.

:21:43.:21:46.

If hedgehogs are really rare in the area, then you're not

:21:47.:21:56.

Sadly, whilst I was filming, Chris and his team didn't find one

:21:57.:22:01.

A real disappointment and very telling of their declining numbers.

:22:02.:22:07.

But later that afternoon, a change in luck, and this -

:22:08.:22:11.

The scientists say they're going to replicate their experiment

:22:12.:22:16.

They say if you see a camera, feel free to join the wildlife

:22:17.:22:21.

His face may be familiar, as the man from Brixton who charmed

:22:22.:22:30.

Dragons Den with his singing and spicy Reggae Reggae sauce.

:22:31.:22:34.

A decade on, Levi Roots is now worth worth millions.

:22:35.:22:41.

Alice Bhandhukravi has been to meet him.

:22:42.:22:44.

That's all I'm good for nowadays, making the sauce.

:22:45.:22:49.

So this is where I would normally be, creating the sauces.

:22:50.:22:58.

If you ask Levi Roots which came first, he will tell you his love of

:22:59.:23:04.

food and music are one in the same. In the kitchen in his east London

:23:05.:23:07.

restaurant he is making me his famous source.

:23:08.:23:10.

It was me doing it in my kitchen in Brixton with my children

:23:11.:23:13.

It would be me and the children, and I would be there,

:23:14.:23:17.

Since that life changing appearance on Dragons Den, the reggae singer

:23:18.:23:29.

has sought to share his success story with young people in schools.

:23:30.:23:35.

I do believe young people, especially kids that have suffered

:23:36.:23:38.

in their backgrounds, like I did when I was growing up, you tend to

:23:39.:23:42.

think you are not going to make it and there are things against you and

:23:43.:23:46.

do is closing that you cannot break down. I go in and I say to them,

:23:47.:23:55.

look at me, I had all the doors locked in my face, but still I

:23:56.:23:57.

believed in me. He hasn't forgotten his music either, creating a

:23:58.:24:01.

compilation of reggae hits, including inspiration Bob Marley.

:24:02.:24:07.

Whenever I hear Bob Marley, Sun Is Shining, it reminds me

:24:08.:24:11.

of the man who has inspired me, that changed my life to be a Rasta

:24:12.:24:14.

man and I think that's helped me to be the person I am.

:24:15.:24:17.

Bringing Caribbean cookery to the masses. Voila, respect.

:24:18.:24:29.

Lovely start to the week, how's it looking for the rest of the week?

:24:30.:24:33.

The sun is shining for now, if you like it make the most of it. Things

:24:34.:24:45.

through this week are going to change. There was blue sky around

:24:46.:24:50.

today, sunshine beating down and temperatures heading up words, we

:24:51.:24:54.

got to 27 degrees across parts of west London, widely into the mid-20s

but we saw McLeod in the afternoon. That cloud was fairly high, quite

:25:02.:25:05.

innocuous but a sign of what's to come. Tomorrow there will be a south

:25:06.:25:10.

easterly winds bringing warm air from any continent. The increasing

:25:11.:25:14.

risk of thunderstorms late in the day. All quiet out there tonight,

:25:15.:25:19.

dry with clear spells. We will see more of that high clade streaming

:25:20.:25:23.

its way in from the south, maybe the odd Mr patch, minimum temperatures

:25:24.:25:31.

of 15 to 17. Increasingly maguey. Muddy and humid tomorrow, spells of

:25:32.:25:35.

hazy sunshine, a little bit of cloud in the sky at times, but it should

:25:36.:25:40.

stay dry for the vast majority of the day. We will have a fairly

:25:41.:25:44.

keenly easterly breeze, close to the coast of Essex and Kent. Further

:25:51.:25:54.

office has issued a Yellow warning for rent in the form of some

:25:55.:25:58.

thunderstorms which are likely to push up from the side. They look

:25:59.:26:03.

quite dramatic and in places they could be, giving a lot of rain in

:26:08.:26:10.

Other spots may miss out completely and it will be very muddy. Those hit

:26:11.:26:17.

and miss thunderstorms will tend to clear away during Wednesday, a lot

:26:18.:26:21.

of dry weather but we cannot rule out the idea of some further storms

:26:22.:26:25.

cropping up as the day goes on. It could be heavy if you do catch one,

:26:26.:26:30.

even hail and gusty winds. Still warm and humid but as we head

:26:31.:26:33.

towards the end of the week things will turn cooler and fresher. Some

:26:34.:26:37.

changes are on the way, if you like the warmth and sunshine make the

:26:38.:26:38.

most of tomorrow. The Government's confirmed
