spells so finishing on a positive note. That's all from the BBC News

:00:00.:00:00.

Tonight on BBC London News: at

:00:00.:00:00.

No more money for the Fire Brigade - The Government rejects the Mayor's

:00:00.:00:08.

request for financial help following the Grenfell disaster.

:00:09.:00:12.

Sadiq Khan has been elected the Mayor of London,

:00:13.:00:14.

he fully understands the situation in London.

:00:15.:00:16.

If he's making that call, he's doing it for a reason,

:00:17.:00:19.

The Government says they have the resources they need.

:00:20.:00:24.

Tributes are paid to a sixth form student from Buckinghamshire

:00:25.:00:28.

who died during a school trip to South America.

:00:29.:00:32.

Two trapped passengers are cut free by firefighters after a bus crashes

:00:33.:00:35.

We look at one how one of the cinematic

:00:36.:00:46.

treasures of the 1930s is being given a new lease

:00:47.:00:48.

London Fire Brigade won't receive any more money from the Government

:00:49.:01:05.

to fund life-saving equipment following the Grenfell tragedy -

:01:06.:01:07.

He'd written to the Home Secretary asking for help to buy,

:01:08.:01:13.

among other things, new breathing apparatus for firefighters

:01:14.:01:16.

But Amber Rudd says they have the resources they need

:01:17.:01:20.

and it's up to City Hall to decide how it's spent.

:01:21.:01:23.

Jeremy Corbyn has told this programme he wants

:01:24.:01:26.

Here's our political correspondent Karl Mercer reports.

:01:27.:01:33.

The Grenfell fire led to calls for London's

:01:34.:01:35.

They had to borrow an aerial ladder from Surrey and

:01:36.:01:39.

a drone from Kent to help tackle the blaze.

:01:40.:01:41.

London's Fire Commissioner then drew up a list of new equipment

:01:42.:01:44.

Top of the list, three new aerial platforms,

:01:45.:01:48.

1200 new breathing apparatus sets and

:01:49.:01:50.

two new drones, along with more masks,

:01:51.:01:53.

The mayor has said he will raid savings to pay for now,

:01:54.:02:01.

but wants the Government to cover the cost.

:02:02.:02:03.

I've had, this week, an initial response from the Home Secretary

:02:04.:02:08.

which I regret to say is not encouraging and stresses

:02:09.:02:11.

that it is a matter for the GLA to manage

:02:12.:02:13.

within its existing funding arrangements.

:02:14.:02:15.

This is the letter the Home Secretary sent to the mayor.

:02:16.:02:18.

"Funding of the Fire Brigade is a matter for you,"

:02:19.:02:22.

and says City Hall already gets enough money from Government.

:02:23.:02:24.

She signs off with, "Best wishes, Amber."

:02:25.:02:27.

The message from the Home Secretary to the mayor is a blunt one.

:02:28.:02:30.

She said, in the wake of the Grenfell fire,

:02:31.:02:33.

if London's Fire Brigade wants more kit, City Hall will

:02:34.:02:35.

The worry here at City Hall is that paying for it now will leave a black

:02:36.:02:40.

hole in the finances in years to come.

:02:41.:02:44.

How can we afford all this if the Government doesn't help?

:02:45.:02:52.

I think this will be a serious problem in the future,

:02:53.:02:55.

about balancing the books for the London Fire Brigade.

:02:56.:02:57.

Let's fund our Fire Service properly and recognise how vital

:02:58.:03:00.

I ask the Home Secretary, think again.

:03:01.:03:03.

Sadiq Khan has been elected Mayor of London.

:03:04.:03:05.

He will understand the situation in London.

:03:06.:03:07.

He's making that call, he's doing it for a reason

:03:08.:03:09.

The mayor says paying for the new kit could mean scenes

:03:10.:03:14.

with the potential for fire station closures and the loss of jobs

:03:15.:03:19.

as was seen three years ago, when similar savings had to be made.

:03:20.:03:22.

The Home Secretary's letter says City Hall is getting enough money

:03:23.:03:28.

So, any further response to this from the Government?

:03:29.:03:37.

We were hoping to hear from you the Home Secretary or a Home Office

:03:38.:03:43.

minister. In fact, we hold the Home Office at 745 this morning. They

:03:44.:03:48.

didn't answer but dead at 510 give us a statement which ends by saying

:03:49.:03:54.

that the governor told the mayor will ensure the London Fargo

:03:55.:03:57.

continue to have the resources they need. Interesting, though, isn't it?

:03:58.:04:01.

This is a battle over ?6 million, essentially. Which is small beer in

:04:02.:04:06.

the big GLA budget and minuscule spreads the Government are

:04:07.:04:08.

concerned. So while the fighting over it? Look at the mayor is

:04:09.:04:14.

pushing his luck, perhaps, saying, I need money for them but we have had

:04:15.:04:19.

that before, and we, money for police, and we had the Premier

:04:20.:04:22.

League yesterday asking for more money to help please football

:04:23.:04:27.

ground. The garments at turning around -- the Government turning

:04:28.:04:29.

around and saying, when does it stop? Will be Mayor of London asked

:04:30.:04:34.

for more money when there is a terror attack? But I think City Hall

:04:35.:04:38.

arrayed that there is a potential further down the line, they said in

:04:39.:04:43.

the piece, that it will be paid but there will be ongoing costs. They

:04:44.:04:46.

think and poor use time, they may have a black hole bat in four use

:04:47.:04:53.

time, they may have a buckle in the budget. The last time there was a

:04:54.:04:57.

similar black hole, they had to lay off firefighters and close stations,

:04:58.:04:59.

so something they are keen to avoid. Thanks for your insight.

:05:00.:05:02.

An investigation's under way after a double decker crashed

:05:03.:05:04.

into a shop in south-west London during this morning's rush hour.

:05:05.:05:07.

Two passengers trapped onboard had to be cut free.

:05:08.:05:14.

A nurse who was on the bus claims the driver told her

:05:15.:05:17.

he had blacked out moments before the collision.

:05:18.:05:18.

We can cross to Battersea now - and to our reporter Ayshea Buksh

:05:19.:05:22.

Well, Lavender Hill has now reopened and traffic is flowing freely

:05:23.:05:33.

through this area. But if you look across the road, you might be able

:05:34.:05:37.

to make up the shop. Half of it is boarded up, the other half isn't. As

:05:38.:05:41.

we came on air, just before we came on air, I spoke to someone who was

:05:42.:05:44.

inside, looking at the damage created by the crash.

:05:45.:05:49.

At the start of rush hour in south London, a devastating crash. A

:05:50.:05:56.

passenger on this number 77 bus along Lavender Hill in Clapham

:05:57.:05:59.

described how would you off the road and into a shop. There was a lot of

:06:00.:06:04.

screaming on the bus. There was a lady in different right seat... You

:06:05.:06:10.

could only see the upper half of her body, that was all you could see.

:06:11.:06:13.

She was screaming for help, there was blood. I went to try to help

:06:14.:06:18.

her, my first reaction was to try to pull her out, but it was physically

:06:19.:06:23.

impossible, she was wedged in. It was then up to the London Fargo to

:06:24.:06:28.

save her. She and another woman also on the top deck, were rescued using

:06:29.:06:32.

specialist equipment -- up to the London Fire Brigade. We used a air

:06:33.:06:38.

platform, it high vehicle we use to reach tall buildings, in this case,

:06:39.:06:41.

one we have casualties trapped in the upper deck of a bus, we can use

:06:42.:06:45.

it to provide a stable, safe platform to bring the casualties

:06:46.:06:49.

down. Other passengers on board were treated by paramedics at the scene

:06:50.:06:54.

and the driver was also taken to hospital. It has been claimed he had

:06:55.:06:57.

some sort of seizure while driving the vehicle. I didn't see the bus

:06:58.:07:00.

driver but I have heard from other passengers that a boss Trevor

:07:01.:07:05.

blacked out. Another lady on the bus said that she saw him slack-jawed

:07:06.:07:10.

with his eyes open. Noel was inside the shop as it hasn't yet open. --

:07:11.:07:17.

no one was inside. It said in a statement that bottle with the

:07:18.:07:20.

driver and passengers. As the buses slowly are meticulously taken away,

:07:21.:07:23.

you can see the full extent of the damage and how the front top end of

:07:24.:07:26.

the bus smashed into the side of the shop. Transport for London, along

:07:27.:07:29.

with the Met police, now investigating what happened.

:07:30.:07:37.

Well, the police have said that one of the injuries were

:07:38.:07:39.

life-threatening or the changing. They will soon made an appeal for

:07:40.:07:43.

anybody who may have been travelling in this area at the time, either on

:07:44.:07:48.

the bicycle or in a car, if they had any footage they may have captured

:07:49.:07:52.

do a dash cam or a helmet cam, to get in touch with them as soon as

:07:53.:07:54.

possible. Many thanks for that update.

:07:55.:07:57.

The Hakki treasure that no one even knew was there. We will take a look

:07:58.:08:06.

around the Savoy cinema. Tributes have been paid to a sixth

:08:07.:08:11.

form student from Buckinghamshire who died during a school trip

:08:12.:08:14.

to south America. The 17-year-old was white water

:08:15.:08:17.

rafting in Ecuador on Sunday The company which organised

:08:18.:08:19.

the trip has now launched Yvonne Hall is in High Wycombe

:08:20.:08:29.

with more details Yvonne. Well, it was just a few weeks ago

:08:30.:08:40.

that a very excited group of pupils left the Royal school here in high

:08:41.:08:44.

Wycombe to go on the trip of a lifetime to Ecuador. One of them was

:08:45.:08:49.

a 17-year-old Matthew Richman, who loved to travel. On Sunday, his

:08:50.:08:54.

parents were told he had drowned. Despite a desperate attempt of his

:08:55.:08:59.

friends to try and save him. An investigation is underway, the whole

:09:00.:09:01.

school community here is in deep shock.

:09:02.:09:10.

His friends say he was caring and friendly and he loved travelling.

:09:11.:09:14.

Last month, Matthew joined a world challenge expedition to do voluntary

:09:15.:09:17.

work in Ecuador with fellow pupils and staff from the Royal Grammar

:09:18.:09:20.

Then, on Sunday, Matthew's parents received the devastating news that

:09:21.:09:24.

Today, the expedition organiser said:

:09:25.:09:45.

Despite the tragic news, one body which

:09:46.:10:04.

represents schools says that overseas trips are

:10:05.:10:06.

There is always a risk, particularly after something

:10:07.:10:17.

terrible happens like has happened today, but we kind of default to

:10:18.:10:20.

a position of thinking that we can't send

:10:21.:10:24.

children on any trips, they

:10:25.:10:25.

I think parents would think, everybody would think, that

:10:26.:10:29.

And what we have to do to remind ourselves that

:10:30.:10:37.

all the procedures are in place, both from the school 's point

:10:38.:10:40.

of view, the local authority point of view, and also from the

:10:41.:10:43.

organisation that runs trips like the one we have heard about today.

:10:44.:10:51.

In 2012, another pupil on a world challenge expedition

:10:52.:10:53.

died while trekking in Morocco for stop Samuel's parents said they

:10:54.:10:56.

would never have let him go if they had known in advance

:10:57.:10:59.

about the arrangements for emergency care.

:11:00.:11:00.

World Challenge says changes have been made since Samuel's death.

:11:01.:11:04.

Well timed has pointed out that it organises hundreds of school trips

:11:05.:11:11.

and the usually say. But it has said it will suspend white-water rafting.

:11:12.:11:15.

An investigation is underway and authorities here are desperately

:11:16.:11:18.

trying to get the school party home early so that they can offer them

:11:19.:11:20.

support and counselling as they struggled to come to terms with this

:11:21.:11:25.

horrific and sudden death of a very well loved young man. Back to you.

:11:26.:11:28.

Thank you. Police hunting for a jogger

:11:29.:11:32.

who knocked a woman into the path of a bus on Putney Bridge

:11:33.:11:35.

have arrested a man. Caroline Davies is here

:11:36.:11:37.

with the latest update. Many of us will have seen this

:11:38.:11:48.

footage over the last few days, the CCTV, that is because it seems to

:11:49.:11:51.

show such a shocking incident and many people have shared it on social

:11:52.:11:56.

media. If we take a look now, it shows a man jogging across Putney

:11:57.:11:59.

Bridge and he comes across a woman walking in the opposite direction

:12:00.:12:03.

and that appears to picture into the road aren't all, in Catholic, the

bus here first overture. -- appears to push her into the road into

:12:09.:12:13.

oncoming traffic. She walks away with the managers, thankful. The bus

:12:14.:12:18.

stops, passengers get off to help the women and about 15 minutes

:12:19.:12:21.

later, the job came back out along the road, back across Putney Bridge.

:12:22.:12:25.

The woman tried to stop him and torture but he didn't acknowledge

:12:26.:12:28.

her and continued on his run. So this CCTV has put out by the police.

:12:29.:12:32.

-- the woman tried to stop and talk to him. The boys are trying to find

:12:33.:12:36.

the manifold. And thus happened during a busy rush-hour? It did, it

:12:37.:12:43.

was a Friday morning, plenty of traffic around, commuters walking

:12:44.:12:46.

across the bridge, plenty of people that might have seen something to

:12:47.:12:49.

stop since this footage has been put out there, the blues have said they

:12:50.:12:52.

have had a very strong response and they were able to arrest a man this

:12:53.:12:57.

morning. A 50-year-old man was arrested in an address in Chelsea.

:12:58.:13:02.

This was on suspicion of grievous bodily harm. But we have had an

:13:03.:13:06.

update since then that been released pending further enquiries. So please

:13:07.:13:10.

to appeal for anyone who has any more information to come forward.

a better relationship with the boating community,

I think actively communicating with them, actively seeking our input,

surreal now, I mean... Looking back on what could

be a landmark moment A World Cup triumph in front

cricket has changed. It is doing it has just been

massive, that Sunday back --It has just been massive, that

Sunday back in July was just crazy. So why should this be any different

from England's previous three Well, today, a woman's domestic

at the Oval on Sunday. Yes, it's a big moment,

:17:52.:17:55.

but it's kind of down to us to make sure we keep it exciting,

:17:56.:17:58.

keep it current and, yeah, showcase some good

:17:59.:18:00.

cricket going forward. So how much do these two World Cup

winners know about each other? Now, Tammy was voted World Cup

outside, at immersive events or at one of the new cinemas

in the decades after the cinema boom of the 30s, many theatres

fell to ruin. One in Hackney has recently been

Tonight, we have a meter shower and because we have had dry weather, you

should have a good view. If you're up that late, that early. We have

had lots of wonderful weather watcher pictures sent in today. This

is a little earlier, Walton on Thames, a vastly different day. That

hasn't been dry and plain sailing for everyone, but from us, it has

been a nice enough day. A fine evening for the athletics, a finite

:25:22.:25:24.

as well, quite cool by the time we get to dawn like it was this

:25:25.:25:28.

morning. Could even be some mist and patchy fog around in some areas,

:25:29.:25:36.

perhaps around the M 25. Lots of sunshine to start the day, the

sunniest part of the UK, because we got cloud gathering in from the

in Buckinghamshire. Some sunshine, 22 hour tomorrow. And good news if

:25:53.:25:55.

you're heading to the athletics, though by the evening, there could

:25:56.:25:59.

be some patchy rain, but not like it was yesterday evening. What about

:26:00.:26:05.

further ahead? As we had through Friday night that patchy rain makes

its way across the London region, let's take a few hours after sunrise

to clear, but the weekend looks for the most part pretty decent. There

will be the odd shower coming to on the breeze on Saturday and attention

for a time on Sunday, but temperatures will get to around

average for the time of year, pleasant as well with light winds

:26:25.:26:28.

and a little ridge of high pressure returning as we have had today. Come

:26:29.:26:35.

Sunday, it looks prior silver -- drier still. Doesn't really bad at

all, a better patchy rain which tomorrow. Thank you.
