return to snow showers as we head

into Friday. That's it for now. Many

0:00:000:00:03

Tonight on BBC London News.

0:00:030:00:06

The 90-year-old stabbed in the neck

by her husband's carer -

0:00:060:00:09

who had a previous conviction

for assault that wasn't

0:00:090:00:11

revealed in criminal checks.

0:00:110:00:18

It is not even one thing she has

done, she has done several things,

0:00:180:00:24

ABH, stealing, and it seems like it

is always the vulnerable she has

0:00:240:00:27

picked on.

0:00:270:00:29

Her son calls for an urgent review.

0:00:290:00:36

On the day the first electric

blackcap goes into service we are

0:00:360:00:40

with the mayor in India.

I am in

India, Delhi, one of the most

0:00:400:00:47

polluted cities in the world.

0:00:470:00:50

And is the only way rebranding?

0:00:500:00:52

As a think tank is set up improve

perceptions of an Essex town.

0:00:520:00:58

Any improvement is a good

improvement. We could be more like

0:00:580:01:03

Southend, which has a better

atmosphere. This really has not got

0:01:030:01:06

an atmosphere.

0:01:060:01:13

Good evening and welcome

to the programme.

0:01:130:01:23

After a 90-year-old woman was

stabbed by a carer with a previous

0:01:230:01:27

conviction for assault there are

calls for an urgent review on how

0:01:270:01:32

criminal record checks are carried

out. The company who employed the

0:01:320:01:38

woman's assailant said they carried

out checks but it did not flag up

0:01:380:01:42

all convictions and it has prompted

serious questions as to how this

0:01:420:01:47

could have happened. The Home Office

is refusing to comment. We have this

0:01:470:01:51

exclusive report.

0:01:510:01:53

Guilty of assault, burglary,

stealing from an employer and fraud,

0:01:530:01:55

but Abosede Adeyinka was given a job

as a carer, sent into the homes

0:01:550:02:01

of vulnerable elderly

people to look after them.

0:02:010:02:07

This was the result - 90-year-old

Pamela Batten nearly died

0:02:070:02:10

when Adeyinka tried

to kill her for cash

0:02:100:02:15

at Pamela's home near West Drayton.

0:02:150:02:16

This is where the attack happened.

0:02:160:02:18

Amazingly, the frail

grandmother managed to pull

0:02:180:02:20

the knife out of her neck

and scare her attacker off.

0:02:200:02:24

Adeyinka has been jailed for 21

years for attempted murder.

0:02:240:02:28

My mum had two injuries

on the head from the hammer -

0:02:280:02:33

one to the front

and one to the back.

0:02:330:02:37

And she had a knife wound

on the right-hand side,

0:02:370:02:41

and the knife went

in five centimetres,

0:02:410:02:45

just missing her spinal cord.

0:02:450:02:46

I cannot believe...

0:02:460:02:48

I really can't believe that

someone with that amount of

0:02:480:02:53

convictions can be still working

with vulnerable people.

0:02:530:02:58

Without a doubt, the law,

it's not just what I

0:02:580:03:00

want, the law should be changed.

0:03:000:03:02

It's got to be changed.

0:03:020:03:03

This is Pamela now, left disabled

and very frightened of strangers.

0:03:030:03:06

Her son has filmed her for us.

0:03:060:03:11

Adeyinka, also a Sunday-school

teacher, had been employed

0:03:110:03:14

by Avant Healthcare to help look

after Pamela's sick husband.

0:03:140:03:19

Avant Healthcare Services are based

in this office block in Hounslow.

0:03:190:03:22

Nobody wants to be interviewed,

but in a statement, the company said

0:03:220:03:27

it had thoroughly vetted Adeyinka,

including criminal records checks

0:03:270:03:30

through the Government's

Disclosure and Barring Service,

0:03:300:03:32

and it said her convictions

for assault and burglary

0:03:320:03:35

were not revealed.

0:03:350:03:37

It added, if Avant Healthcare

had been aware of the assault

0:03:370:03:40

conviction, Abosede Adeyinka

would not have been employed.

0:03:400:03:46

So how did the safety

checks fail Pamela?

0:03:460:03:49

The Home Office is in

charge of the system

0:03:490:03:51

to check criminal records.

0:03:510:03:52

It's called the Disclosure

and Barring Service, or DBS.

0:03:520:03:58

We've repeatedly asked officials

here how Adeyinka's convictions

0:03:580:04:01

appear not to have been included

in a DBS check.

0:04:010:04:06

But nobody here will tell us how it

happened, or what is being done

0:04:060:04:09

to stop it happening again.

0:04:090:04:12

A charity campaigning for new laws

to protect older people is now

0:04:120:04:15

demanding to know how many other

carers have convictions

0:04:150:04:17

for violence too.

0:04:170:04:20

It's a huge concern,

because where else is it happening?

0:04:200:04:22

There is blame somewhere, we need

to establish where the blame is.

0:04:220:04:25

Thinking about your own parents,

would you be happy with the idea

0:04:250:04:28

that somebody with those sorts

of serious convictions

0:04:280:04:31

are coming into somebody's home?

0:04:310:04:32

Pamela wants answers too.

0:04:320:04:36

Well, I'm shocked as well,

it surprised me,

0:04:360:04:40

because it makes you wonder now

just what is going on.

0:04:400:04:42

Yvonne Hall, BBC London News.

0:04:420:04:47

Plenty more ahead including:

0:04:470:04:50

One of our first black MPs

is honoured with a portrait

0:04:500:04:53

in Parliament 17 years

after his death.

0:04:530:04:57

We'll reveal who later

in the programme.

0:04:570:05:05

The Mayor of London has announced

that City Hall will spearhead

0:05:050:05:07

a global partnership of up to 20

other cities to tackle

0:05:070:05:10

global air pollution.

0:05:100:05:15

The capital is also set to get

a new air monitoring system.

0:05:150:05:18

Sadiq Khan made the announcement

in Delhi - on the third day

0:05:180:05:21

of his trade visit to India.

0:05:210:05:22

From where our political

correspondent Karl Mercer

0:05:220:05:24

sent this report.

0:05:240:05:29

Take a look at Delhi if you thought

London traffic was banned. And take

0:05:290:05:36

a look at Delhi if you thought

London had a bad pollution problem.

0:05:360:05:42

Here the state of the atmosphere is

front-page news and in the next ten

0:05:420:05:47

days all 6000 traffic police here

will be tested for lung disease and

0:05:470:05:53

a couple of months ago the Test

match between India and Sri Lanka

0:05:530:05:59

saw the scenes, players wearing

masks and some being sick. In London

0:05:590:06:05

the mayor Sadiq Khan has made

pollution a key issue but the scale

0:06:050:06:09

of it here in Delhi is nothing like

London has seen. Experts say it is

0:06:090:06:14

one of the most polluted cities, but

spending a day in smog and traffic

0:06:140:06:20

here is like smoking 50 cigarettes.

The mayor thinks the city 's convert

0:06:200:06:24

from each other. Make new friends,

if you like. Today he announced

0:06:240:06:33

£750,000 will be spent on air

monitoring stations in London.

We

0:06:330:06:38

can have them outside schools,

social care centres, and take

0:06:380:06:43

action. It is not a one size fits

all approach. We are going to use

0:06:430:06:49

this as a way of cleaning up sooner

rather than later.

The school that

0:06:490:06:57

welcomed the mayor to Delhi is doing

a lot of work on pollution. It is a

0:06:570:07:03

growing problem according to the

headteacher. Initially it was not

0:07:030:07:10

that bad, since three years it has

really gone bad and we are worried

0:07:100:07:15

about it, before it it was not that

bad.

We hope that within a year or

0:07:150:07:25

two we are able to manage it.

The

business on this trip is done in

0:07:250:07:32

grand rooms not classrooms, the man

beating the Finance Minister and

0:07:320:07:37

commerce minister, once he had

finished his last-minute paperwork.

0:07:370:07:42

The Chancellor, the second most

powerful politician in India, was

0:07:420:07:47

keen to reassure me he recognises

London is open and he is pleased to

0:07:470:07:55

hear that notwithstanding Brexit,

London is open.

Business side it is

0:07:550:08:01

a trip about symbolism. London's

Muslim mayor at this giant temple

0:08:010:08:06

today. Among the greeting party, a

swami who started life in London.

I

0:08:060:08:22

studied at Woolwich College and I

lived in Eltham. You do not lose it

0:08:220:08:26

back quickly.

Whatever the there

says about shared city problems this

0:08:260:08:32

at least is one London does not

have.

0:08:320:08:35

So as Karl mentioned, tackling

London's air pollution is one

0:08:350:08:38

of the Mayor's key policies.

0:08:380:08:39

And today the first fully electric

black cab hit the capital's streets.

0:08:390:08:45

From the new year every

new cab will have to be

0:08:450:08:47

electric - and it's hoped there'll

be more than 9,000 of them

0:08:470:08:50

on our roads within two years -

that's roughly half

0:08:500:08:53

the current fleet.

0:08:530:08:56

It could cut London pollution,

like nitrogen oxides by 3.5%.

0:08:560:08:59

Here's our transport

Correspondent Tom Edwards.

0:08:590:09:04

This is the T X E city, London's

Electric cab, picking up fares today

0:09:040:09:12

for the first time. John Dowd has

been a cabbie for nine years and has

0:09:120:09:18

trialled this one for seven weeks

and loves it. Really impressive.

How

0:09:180:09:23

have you found it? It is like

nothing else I have driven as a cab

0:09:230:09:28

driver. It is incredible, no

comparison to any thing in the trade

0:09:280:09:33

before.

What has the reaction been

from passengers?

Superb. Everything

0:09:330:09:39

about it, the space and luxury, the

suspension. Everything. And it is

0:09:390:09:47

quiet. It is a new experience for

passengers and drivers.

What is

0:09:470:09:53

striking is the roof, completely

see-through and you can see

0:09:530:09:57

everything. It has a range on the

battery of 70 miles, but that can be

0:09:570:10:03

extended with the petrol generator

to about 370. Built in Coventry, the

0:10:030:10:09

technology has been tested in the

harsh environment of the Arctic.

0:10:090:10:15

£55,000, it is not cheap, but the

manufacturer says there are savings.

0:10:150:10:28

The average cabbie will save £100 a

week in fuel. There are concerns

0:10:280:10:30

about the lack of rapid charging

points in London. Transport for

0:10:300:10:33

London and the borrowers cannot

between them get is more than two

0:10:330:10:36

charge points in central London, two

within six miles of Charrington

0:10:360:10:40

cross. We have nowhere to charge it.

A disgrace. TfL said there will be

0:10:400:10:49

150 rapid charges by the end of next

year and the on-board generator

0:10:490:10:54

means taxes will not end up

stranded. Why are there not more

0:10:540:10:59

rapid Charger is ready?

You cannot

have a city full of rapid charges

0:10:590:11:04

and no vehicles to use them. This is

a progressive thing. From the 1st of

0:11:040:11:12

January, only zero emission taxes

like this can be licensed for the

0:11:120:11:16

first time that we will see an

increase of charging points.

So far,

0:11:160:11:22

a few hundred electric camps have

been pre-ordered. All new camps must

0:11:220:11:27

be zero emissions from the New Year

so you can expect to see more of

0:11:270:11:31

these on the streets of London.

0:11:310:11:34

Detectives are trying to piece

together the last known movements

0:11:340:11:37

of a father and daughter found dead

at a home in Deptford.

0:11:370:11:40

The bodies of Noel Brown,

who was 69, and his 41-year-old

0:11:400:11:44

daughter, Marie, were

discovered in the early hours

0:11:440:11:46

of yesterday morning.

0:11:460:11:47

Detectives say someone

had forced entry into

0:11:470:11:49

the house on New Butt Lane.

0:11:490:11:51

There are increased police

patrols in the local area.

0:11:510:11:53

So far no-one's been arrested.

0:11:530:11:59

The McDonald's security guard who's

accused of telling a Muslim woman

0:11:590:12:01

to remove her headscarf

has been suspended.

0:12:010:12:03

In this video posted on social

media, the 19-year-old student

0:12:030:12:05

is heard asking the guard why

she cannot come in.

0:12:050:12:08

He responds:

0:12:080:12:09

"It's just

a matter of taking it off."

0:12:090:12:11

The incident took place

last Thursday night

0:12:110:12:13

at the Seven Sisters Road

branch in Holloway.

0:12:130:12:15

McDonald's has apologised

and says it has launched

0:12:150:12:17

an internal investigation.

0:12:170:12:22

Three prisoners have been found not

guilty of killing a fellow inmate

0:12:220:12:24

at Pentonville Prison.

0:12:250:12:26

Jamal Mahmoud was fatally

stabbed after a row over

0:12:260:12:29

smuggled contraband.

0:12:290:12:32

The jury at the Old Bailey heard how

the 21-year-old has taken a senior

0:12:320:12:35

role in a gang linked to drugs

and violence before his

0:12:350:12:38

death in October 2016.

0:12:380:12:39

The three men accused

of killing him were ALL cleared

0:12:390:12:41

of murder and manslaughter.

0:12:420:12:50

More on the findings of a major

terror review ordered by the

0:12:500:12:54

government. The report highlights

how the leader of the London Bridge

0:12:540:12:59

attack and the man who targeted

Westminster Bridge had both been on

0:12:590:13:04

MI5's radar previously.

What more

have we learned? We have learned the

0:13:040:13:10

security service was actively

investigating the ringleader of the

0:13:100:13:13

London Bridge attack when it

happens. From mid-2015 Khuram Butt

0:13:130:13:19

was being investigated in operation

hawthorn because they had

0:13:190:13:26

information that suggested he wanted

to carry out an attack on the UK. In

0:13:260:13:32

September 2015 and assessment

concluded he represented a medium

0:13:320:13:35

risk and they said he had strong

content but weak capability. Early

0:13:350:13:40

the following year the operation was

suspended because of resourcing

0:13:400:13:46

problems after the Paris attacks and

it was downgraded. Two weeks before

0:13:460:13:52

the attack, Hawthorn was reopened

after new material was received but

0:13:520:13:56

it did not indicate the atrocities

the man would go on to commit.

What

0:13:560:14:03

about the man responsible for the

attack on Westminster Bridge?

Khalid

0:14:030:14:09

Masood was known to MI5 and had been

under observation for associating

0:14:090:14:15

with extremists, but he was not

being investigated at the time of

0:14:150:14:19

that atrocity. The report said his

attack could not have been

0:14:190:14:24

anticipated but it reveals before

the attack he did reconnaissance

0:14:240:14:28

work at Westminster Bridge and had

been looking on YouTube for videos

0:14:280:14:34

relating to terrorism. There is no

suggestion in the review the attacks

0:14:340:14:38

could be prevented by the security

services but the Metropolitan Police

0:14:380:14:44

Commissioner said she needs more

resources to fight the growing

0:14:440:14:49

problem and said there are

significant challenges in an

0:14:490:14:52

environment that is more intense

than ever for those fighting terror.

0:14:520:14:57

Thank you.

0:14:570:15:00

Still to come this Tuesday evening:

0:15:000:15:05

Challenging stereotypes. Why an

Essex town is spending thousands on

0:15:050:15:10

rebranding. Plus. I will have your

weather forecast from the Tate

0:15:100:15:17

Britain later.

0:15:170:15:28

The Labour leader has accused the

government of damaging London's

0:15:300:15:38

global reputation far higher

education and research after the

0:15:380:15:43

American academic was refused

indefinite leave to remain.

0:15:430:15:46

Jennifer Wexler is married

to a Londoner and has lived

0:15:460:15:48

and worked here for years,

including as an archaeologist

0:15:480:15:51

at a London University

and the British Museum

0:15:510:15:52

for the last four years.

0:15:530:15:54

Our education reporter,

Marc Ashdown, has the story.

0:15:540:15:56

So this paper will focus on our work

in connection with the Bronze

0:15:560:15:59

collections at the Age British

Museum.

0:15:590:16:00

Expert archeologist Jennifer Wexler,

presenting a talk recently

0:16:000:16:02

on the Bronze Age.

0:16:020:16:03

An American who's lived and worked

here for ten years, the Home Office

0:16:030:16:06

has refused her right to remain

in the UK.

0:16:060:16:08

To be honest, I was completely

shocked and appalled

0:16:080:16:11

that the Home Office had given me

permission to undertake

0:16:110:16:13

a certain type of work,

connected to also my specialised

0:16:130:16:15

training and then were

telling me that essentially

0:16:150:16:17

that work wasn't valid.

0:16:170:16:19

The trouble is that Jennifer

sometimes travels abroad

0:16:190:16:22

representing the British Museum,

the Government says she's been out

0:16:220:16:26

of the country too many days,

even though they originally approved

0:16:260:16:28

all the travel.

0:16:280:16:29

Husband Sam, a leading

archeologist, born and bred

0:16:290:16:31

in the UK, also had a shock.

0:16:310:16:34

He was told he could just go

and live in the US too.

0:16:340:16:37

I just couldn't understand how it

could be so casually said

0:16:370:16:39

within such a letter.

0:16:390:16:42

Somebody who is born

in the United Kingdom and has

0:16:420:16:44

been here for 40 years,

contributing to the UK,

0:16:440:16:49

and then suddenly just to be said -

you know, well, you can just

0:16:490:16:52

go somewhere else.

0:16:520:16:53

I was completely shocked with this

and, fundamentally, it kind of...

0:16:530:16:56

It just really suddenly

challenges your idea

0:16:560:16:57

of what it is to be

a British citizen.

0:16:570:17:00

What status that means.

0:17:000:17:01

Their local MP, a certain

Jeremy Corbyn, has taken up

0:17:010:17:04

the case, describing Jennifer

in a letter to the Home Office

0:17:040:17:06

as an obvious asset to the UK.

0:17:070:17:09

Some say all this is symptomatic

of wider issues for all

0:17:090:17:11

sorts of applicants.

0:17:110:17:15

Only apply for something

in which you think you're

0:17:150:17:17

going to qualify for.

0:17:180:17:21

Don't expect the Home Office

to exercise any discretion

0:17:210:17:25

because the current state of affairs

and the current political climate

0:17:250:17:27

is that they're not all going to be

friendly towards people

0:17:270:17:30

who want to settle here

because the whole purpose of this

0:17:300:17:33

Government is to reduce the amount

of people settling here.

0:17:330:17:38

I'm not the only one

who's been through this,

0:17:380:17:40

I know a number of colleagues who've

had similar responses

0:17:400:17:42

from the Home Office.

0:17:420:17:43

I mean, I think it sends a very

clear message that the UK is not

0:17:430:17:49

that interested in supporting

international academics

0:17:490:17:52

and, not only

that, is that they actually

0:17:520:17:55

are targeting them as people

that they think they can easily

0:17:550:17:59

get rid of and easily

reject for settlement.

0:17:590:18:01

The Home Office says it can't

comment on an active case.

0:18:010:18:03

Jennifer is nervously waiting

for news of her appeal.

0:18:030:18:06

Mark Ashdown, BBC London News.

0:18:060:18:07

He was one of Britain's first black

MP's who went from a rail clerk

0:18:070:18:10

to the corridors of power.

0:18:100:18:19

Bernie Grant was outspoken,

controversial, allegedly saying

0:18:190:18:21

of the race riots in the '80s

that the police received

0:18:210:18:24

a "good hiding."

0:18:240:18:25

To others he was a uncompromising

civil rights campaigner.

0:18:250:18:27

Now, 17 years after his death,

the Tottenham MP is to be

0:18:270:18:30

immortalised with his own

portrait in Parliament.

0:18:300:18:31

Wendy Hurrell was at the unveiling.

0:18:320:18:33

During the Broadwater Farm riots

in 1985, Bernie Grant stood

0:18:330:18:35

beside the people of Tottenham,

it was the defining

0:18:350:18:37

moment in his career.

0:18:380:18:43

In terms of the damage

to the community, well

0:18:430:18:45

that's incalculable.

0:18:450:18:50

It was not without controversy,

some branded him anti-police,

0:18:500:18:52

but to many Bernie Grant was a hero.

0:18:520:19:02

It's hugely important

for generations after this to be

0:19:020:19:04

able to look back and recognise

the huge contribution that Bernie

0:19:040:19:07

made to a multi-cultural London

and a multi-cultural Britain.

0:19:070:19:09

I do solemnly, sincerely and truly

declare and affirm...

0:19:090:19:12

From the moment he was elected

as a Labour MP, in 1987,

0:19:120:19:14

and attended the State Opening

of Parliament in traditional

0:19:140:19:21

Ghanaian dress, to his death in

2000, Bernie Grant was a charismatic

0:19:210:19:24

and outspoken figure.

0:19:240:19:25

I think that we need to channel

the energies of the young people

0:19:250:19:28

into political action.

0:19:280:19:37

The job of immortalising him

in an artwork fell to this Tottenham

0:19:370:19:39

artist, who had to find ways to get

to know his subject

0:19:390:19:42

without ever having met him.

0:19:420:19:44

Sometimes you have to like ruffle

the feathers in order to have

0:19:440:19:46

change, and he wasn't afraid to do

that, which is kind of were my

0:19:460:19:50

inspiration for him kind of led him.

0:19:500:19:51

Knowing that regardless

of the resistance and the barriers

0:19:510:19:54

that people try to perturb you,

he was passionate and he wanted

0:19:540:19:59

to get his word across, you know

pioneering for change and equality.

0:19:590:20:02

I had audio, I heard his voice.

0:20:020:20:03

Countless photographs.

0:20:030:20:04

The work is entirely in pencil.

0:20:040:20:06

The first in this medium that

will hang in Parliament.

0:20:060:20:08

It took 180 hours.

0:20:080:20:09

The portrait is now here

at Portcullis House and will hang

0:20:090:20:12

alongside former colleagues

of Bernie Grant, Diane Abbott

0:20:120:20:22

and Paul Boateng who were elected

to Parliament that same year, 1987.

0:20:220:20:25

It feels like I could

reach out and touch him.

0:20:250:20:27

Bernie Grant's widow has

complimented the artist

0:20:270:20:29

on the likeness he has captured.

0:20:290:20:36

I think the portrait is important,

not just from the point of view

0:20:360:20:39

of him, his acceptance

and his family, I think it's

0:20:390:20:41

probably an honour too

0:20:410:20:49

for a whole generation who felt

that he reflected their experience

0:20:490:20:51

and they will feel that perhaps

somewhere in the House of Commons

0:20:510:20:54

there's somebody that is listening

to them and what their

0:20:540:20:57

generation experienced.

0:20:570:20:58

When you think of Basildon,

what do you think of?

0:20:580:21:03

Well, hopefully, it isn't white vans

and stiletto heals as the Essex town

0:21:030:21:06

has just set up its own think-tank

to try and rebrand its image.

0:21:060:21:09

We sent Tolu Adeoyay to find

out what people think

0:21:090:21:12

of their neighbourhood.

0:21:120:21:13

Welcome to... Basildon. Home to

180,000 people and 7,000 businesses

0:21:130:21:18

and just 35 minutes from central

London by rail, Basildon has a lot

0:21:180:21:21

going for it, but it has suffered

from a bit of a reputation.

0:21:210:21:26

Basically, a mess, to what it was.

Definitely needs a lot doing to it.

0:21:260:21:31

If you mention Basildon it's like

--ing oh, no. God, tutting. The

0:21:310:21:37

council wants to turn things around

it has set up and independent

0:21:370:21:41

commission to give this town a

rebirth.

People don't always see

0:21:410:21:44

what a place is really like. They

know the cliche, the stereotype.

0:21:440:21:48

Actually, part of this is about

really identifying and communicating

0:21:480:21:53

what Basildon really is, both the

good and the bad. What is great

0:21:530:21:56

about it, what is not so great and

how can we improve it?

This isn't

0:21:560:21:59

the first time there has been talk

of boosting Basildon. Back in 1948 a

0:21:590:22:05

Government minister came to Basildon

and said - Basildon will become a

0:22:050:22:10

city that people from all over the

world will want to visit. It will be

0:22:100:22:14

a place where all classes of

community can meet together on equal

0:22:140:22:19

terms. How far has it come? Trip

advisers lists this theatre as one

0:22:190:22:25

of the town's Big Draws. It's Panto

star say there is is a lot going for

0:22:250:22:29

it. Across there from the theatre, I

walk my dog in between shows. It's

0:22:290:22:35

like just trees and everything for

miles. It's really nice.

It's full

0:22:350:22:40

of really salt of the earth people.

It's a good humoured place. I'm a

0:22:400:22:45

northerner. It's similar, great

people.

At this pie and mash shop

0:22:450:22:51

locals told me what could improve

the town?

Tidy up, more cleaner.

0:22:510:22:55

Less pound shops.

More like

Southend. Southend has a Bert

0:22:550:23:00

atmosphere. This hasn't really got

an October moose fear. I don't think

0:23:000:23:05

so anyway.

Any improvement is a good

improvement, aren't they.

The

0:23:050:23:12

Commission will work to boost the

town and their recommendations could

0:23:120:23:14

become real policies so maybe one

day basil Don could rival that other

0:23:140:23:19

place with a famous sign.

0:23:190:23:28

Now, if you're out and about it is

of course the time of the year

0:23:280:23:31

for twinkling lights marking

the festive season, these

0:23:310:23:33

are the ones on Regent Street.

0:23:330:23:35

Some of London's landmarks are also

getting in on the act,

0:23:350:23:39

including Tate Britain,

and that's where we can

0:23:390:23:41

join Elizabeth Rizzini.

0:23:410:23:44

Hi.

Hello. Thank you.

0:23:440:23:47

Hi.

Hello. Thank you.

It's feeling

like Christmas by the river at the

0:23:470:23:52

Tate Britain. These are not just

Christmas lights. No, this is

0:23:520:23:56

actually high end art. Yes, it is.

It's the latest installation here

0:23:560:24:02

it's done by an rtist who mixes high

end cull with something more

0:24:020:24:09

grounded and accessible. All of

these Christmas lights can be found

0:24:090:24:13

off the shelves. I will look out for

the reindeer and the Christmas

0:24:130:24:18

pudding later. If you want culture

down here at Tate Britain this is

0:24:180:24:23

available to see every early morning

and evening right up until the 6th

0:24:230:24:26

January. What sort of weather

conditions will we view it all in

0:24:260:24:29

this week? Actually, we've got a

mixed bag, as we like to see. There

0:24:290:24:34

will be a little bit of absolutely

everything, I have to say. It's

0:24:340:24:40

going to be turning milder. It will

turn colder. We will talk about

0:24:400:24:45

sunshine and also rain. It will get

very windy indeed on Thursday

0:24:450:24:49

morning. There could be a little bit

of snow, perhaps snowflakes by the

0:24:490:24:54

end of the working week. Overnight

tonight it will stay dry and it will

0:24:540:24:59

stay reasonably mild for this time

of year. You won't need all you have

0:24:590:25:03

of your layers on. You won't need

your hat and gloves tonight. We will

0:25:030:25:08

end the night at six or seven

degrees Celsius. A dry start to the

0:25:080:25:13

day tomorrow morning. There might be

spits and spots of drizzle around,

0:25:130:25:16

but it will look dry. It will feel

windier tomorrow. We have a brisk

0:25:160:25:21

south-westerly wind that will drag

in milder air. Temperatures will be

0:25:210:25:25

slightly higher by the time we get

to the end of the day, maybe 12 or

0:25:250:25:30

13 degrees Celsius. The wind will

mix the air up a touch. We could see

0:25:300:25:34

something brighter going on through

tomorrow afternoon. Brighter than it

0:25:340:25:37

was earlier on today. It will kick

off on Wednesday night. That is when

0:25:370:25:42

we will start to see the big change.

It will turn windy indeed. Wednesday

0:25:420:25:48

night right through to Thursday

morning. This is Storm Caroline we

0:25:480:25:52

have been talking about on the

national forecast of course. It's a

0:25:520:25:56

cold front coming through, windy

conditions indeed. When you wake up

0:25:560:25:58

on Thursday morning you will be

surprised just how mild it is, it

0:25:580:26:03

will be wet and windy too. We could

look at gusts on Thursday morning of

0:26:030:26:08

up to 40 to 50 miles an hour.

Nothing to be alarmed about, not

0:26:080:26:12

particularly unusual for this time

of year. It will be a very windy

0:26:120:26:14

start to the day. By the time you

get home in the evening on Thursday

0:26:140:26:18

it will be colder. There will be

sunshine just before the sun goes

0:26:180:26:22

down as well. A big dip in

temperature by the time we get to

0:26:220:26:26

the end of the week. I will not rule

out wintry showers on Thursday night

0:26:260:26:30

into the start of the day on Friday.

Widespread frost around as well.

0:26:300:26:36

Feeling colder, perhaps more like

Christmas, not as Christmassy as

0:26:360:26:39

these lights. , sparkling away

there. Thank you.

0:26:390:26:49

Recapping the day's headlines:

0:26:490:26:50

A BBC investigation into three live

streaming apps has found evidence

0:26:500:26:52

of men trying to groom children

by asking them to carry-out sexual

0:26:520:26:55

acts and exposing them

to obscene material.

0:26:550:27:00

The terror attack on

the Manchester Arena,

0:27:000:27:03

in which 22 people were killed

in May, might have been prevented.

0:27:030:27:07

A report says the bomber had been

a "subject of interest"

0:27:070:27:09

and opportunities to stop

him were missed.

0:27:090:27:16

The Democratic Unionist Party says

the Irish government and the EU

0:27:160:27:21

are to blame for a failure in Brexit

talks, that's despite the DUP's

0:27:210:27:24

rejection of the latest proposals

for resolving border

0:27:240:27:26

issues in Ireland.

0:27:260:27:31

More from us during

the Ten O'Clock News.

0:27:310:27:33

But that's it for now.

0:27:330:27:34

You're always welcome

of course to get in touch

0:27:340:27:36

on our Facebook Page.

0:27:360:27:37

From us here though,

thanks for watching

0:27:370:27:39

and have a lovely evening.

0:27:390:27:43

Bye bye.

0:27:430:27:48
