independent child sexual abuse inquiry. Join me now on BBC Two

:00:00.:00:13.

Good evening and welcome to BBC London News.

:00:14.:00:15.

Three men have been charged by police after trouble broke out

:00:16.:00:19.

at last night's match between West Ham - who were playing

:00:20.:00:22.

Despite the heavy security presence, stewards struggled to

:00:23.:00:26.

contain the violence, prompting more questions

:00:27.:00:30.

about whether their new homd ground is even suitable for football.

:00:31.:00:33.

West Ham says its identified 20 people who will receive

:00:34.:00:36.

Many believed English footb`ll had consigned such scenes to its past,

:00:37.:00:47.

but last night West Ham and Chelsea fans surged towards one another

:00:48.:00:50.

inside the former Olympic Stadium, and were held apart only

:00:51.:00:53.

Seats were ripped up and thrown as tensions between supportdrs

:00:54.:00:59.

boiled over in the closing minutes of the game.

:01:00.:01:04.

1,000 stewards and a heavy police presence ensured minimal trouble

:01:05.:01:07.

outside the stadium before and after the match.

:01:08.:01:11.

But the ugly scenes left many fans, including children,

:01:12.:01:14.

We were watching the game in the front row,

:01:15.:01:20.

Suddenly there were coins coming over and my daughter Victorha

:01:21.:01:25.

got hit by seven coins all over her body.

:01:26.:01:31.

The stewards did not seem to do too much at all and let it carrx on

:01:32.:01:35.

Other kids were hit, in the disabled section.

:01:36.:01:37.

I am lucky that I have got out and now it is finished.

:01:38.:01:40.

In a statement, the club said:

:01:41.:02:00.

we are totally against it, as a club and as a team.

:02:01.:02:06.

For those kinds of things to happen, especially

:02:07.:02:08.

West Ham became tenants at the London Stadium in August

:02:09.:02:15.

and the control of stewarding and security is the responshbility

:02:16.:02:17.

It has made changes to how fans are segregated,

:02:18.:02:23.

following isolated outbreaks of trouble earlier this season,

:02:24.:02:26.

but in the wake of last night's incidents, many feel further

:02:27.:02:29.

amendments to the stadium are now needed.

:02:30.:02:34.

I'd like to see West Ham putting forward a plan to the FA

:02:35.:02:38.

and the Premier League about what they are looking to do

:02:39.:02:41.

and it might well be that l`rge areas of the ground will have

:02:42.:02:44.

to be segregated fans, but we need to get this right.

:02:45.:02:47.

The Football Association has launched an investigation.

:02:48.:02:49.

Both clubs will be asked to give their comments on events,

:02:50.:02:53.

but with a string of high-profile fixtures still to come this season,

:02:54.:02:55.

the pressure on West Ham to achieve a secure stadium is set to hncrease.

:02:56.:02:59.

Now, with concern in the City over Brexit, some analysts believe

:03:00.:03:10.

that the massive deregulation which took place 30 years ago -

:03:11.:03:13.

the so-called "Big Bang" - could in fact protect

:03:14.:03:15.

Trading used take place facd to face between certain

:03:16.:03:20.

controlled trading companies - but afterwards, anyone could trade

:03:21.:03:23.

Here's Tolu Adeoye with a short history of that

:03:24.:03:29.

It was the day that would change the City for ever.

:03:30.:03:37.

Before the Big Bang, trading on the London Stock Exchange

:03:38.:03:39.

was done on the floor, with face-to-face dealings.

:03:40.:03:41.

It was divided between stockbrokers, who acted for clients,

:03:42.:03:45.

and stock jobbers, who held pots of shares to trade with thel.

:03:46.:03:50.

After the Big Bang, everyond could trade with each other

:03:51.:03:52.

and the deals would be done on computers and by phone.

:03:53.:03:56.

Alisdair Haynes was a stock jobber during the Big Bang.

:03:57.:03:59.

The previous day, you had thousands of people walking

:04:00.:04:05.

across the market floor, huge noise, and you walk

:04:06.:04:08.

in on the Monday morning and the traded options markdt

:04:09.:04:10.

was just on its own, and the rest of the stock exchange

:04:11.:04:14.

Multinational banks flooded into London after the Big B`ng,

:04:15.:04:19.

bringing trillions of dollars of funds from around the world.

:04:20.:04:23.

They developed new and argu`bly more risky ways to trade,

:04:24.:04:26.

Justin Urquhart Stewart was working as a stockbroker.

:04:27.:04:35.

There is a direct line of c`usation from Big Bang in 1986,

:04:36.:04:39.

because pre-Big Bang, we took the risk ourselves

:04:40.:04:41.

Post-Big Bang, we were now taking risks with somebody else's loney,

:04:42.:04:47.

and so the risk could be buhlt up, somebody else was going to be

:04:48.:04:50.

However the Big Bang has helped make London the financial

:04:51.:04:53.

The question now is whether it will stay as strong

:04:54.:04:57.

if Britain loses access to the European single markdt.

:04:58.:05:03.

Tolu Adeoye joins us now in Central London.

:05:04.:05:07.

The question everyone is asking - how can London make

:05:08.:05:10.

Sadiq Khan has made his views clear tonight. Another night and `nother

:05:11.:05:22.

big speech on Brexit. The m`yor has been speaking to business ldaders at

:05:23.:05:25.

the City of London Corporathon dinner and he's not feeling of

:05:26.:05:29.

confidence as the Lord Matt Jeffrey Mountevans was last night when he

:05:30.:05:33.

gave a speech about deliverhng a successful Brexit. In fact, he

:05:34.:05:36.

accused the government of bding blase to the impact it might have on

:05:37.:05:41.

the city. He said if the government continues with a reckless,

:05:42.:05:45.

hard-headed, hard-nosed hard Nexit approach and we end up out of the

:05:46.:05:49.

single market the impact wotld have a ripple effect far and widd and he

:05:50.:05:53.

urged business leaders to join him and impress arising the govdrnment

:05:54.:05:57.

to deliver a unique deal th`t would benefit London, Britain and Europe

:05:58.:05:58.

as a whole. Thank you. The BBC has gained access to secret

:05:59.:06:04.

files, which contain new cltes as to how four people were wrongly

:06:05.:06:07.

convicted of the Guildford pub Gerry Conlon, along with his

:06:08.:06:10.

co-defendants, served fiftedn years in jail before the convictions

:06:11.:06:14.

were finally quashed. Emma Vardy has this

:06:15.:06:17.

exclusive report. In October 1974, bombs rippdd

:06:18.:06:22.

through two Guildford pubs. Five people were killed

:06:23.:06:26.

and many more injured. Police were under huge pressure

:06:27.:06:31.

to apprehend the IRA bombers responsible

:06:32.:06:33.

for these Surrey attacks. The police and the army camd

:06:34.:06:37.

in and kicked the door in. Ann McKernan was 14 when her brother

:06:38.:06:43.

Gerry Conlon was We were an ordinary Catholic family,

:06:44.:06:46.

growing up on the Falls Road You know, my family were not

:06:47.:06:52.

Republicans. There was no way that Gerry Conlon

:06:53.:07:01.

was involved in any bombs, because Gerry Conlon wasn't

:07:02.:07:06.

in the IRA. The accused were brought to court

:07:07.:07:08.

from the police stations But the Guildford Four were found

:07:09.:07:10.

guilty and sentenced Charged as a result

:07:11.:07:14.

of a Surrey Police investig`tion. In 1989, their moment

:07:15.:07:18.

of redemption came. The Court of Appeal overturned

:07:19.:07:24.

their convictions, For something I didn't

:07:25.:07:26.

know anything about! The case shattered confidence

:07:27.:07:35.

in the British legal system. The Guildford Four claimed they had

:07:36.:07:39.

been set up by corrupt police. An inquiry into the wrongful

:07:40.:07:41.

convictions was carried out by a High Court judge,

:07:42.:07:45.

Sir John May. But more than 700 files

:07:46.:07:48.

from Sir John May's findings remained private, embargoed

:07:49.:07:51.

by the Government. Now a freedom of information request

:07:52.:07:56.

by the BBC has succeeded in securing For the first time, they show some

:07:57.:08:00.

members of the inquiry refused to accept that Gerry Conlon had not

:08:01.:08:06.

been a member of the IRA, The papers referred to police

intelligence from the time of the arrests which was

never tested in court. They give us an indication that some

:08:15.:08:18.

of the problems that we had in the course of the case over many

:08:19.:08:22.

years, the persistent attempt to try and re-convict the Guildford Four,

:08:23.:08:26.

was still going on. I would like to see everythhng

:08:27.:08:29.

that Sir John May saw, all the evidence that was ghven

:08:30.:08:34.

to him, all the documents that were produced to him, so th`t we can

:08:35.:08:38.

see what it was that he was able to find out about the case `nd why

:08:39.:08:42.

it went so badly wrong. Why four young people were convicted

:08:43.:08:45.

of terrible offences and served an enormous

:08:46.:08:52.

period of time in prison. I am very sorry that they wdre

:08:53.:08:57.

subject to such an ordeal In 2005, the then Prime Minhster

:08:58.:09:00.

Tony Blair issued an apologx to the Guildford Four

:09:01.:09:07.

for the miscarriage of justhce. It was almost like a millstone had

:09:08.:09:10.

been taken from around my ndck. Gerry Conlon died two years

:09:11.:09:18.

ago, aged 60. Richard O'Rawe, a former

:09:19.:09:21.

spokesperson for the IRA, and biographer and friend

:09:22.:09:24.

of Gerry Conlon, says there are now renewed calls for all 700 fhles

:09:25.:09:28.

to be placed into the public domain. It has to matter, because if it does

:09:29.:09:32.

not matter, we live in a society You know, what the British

:09:33.:09:39.

Government has done, 42 years later, I'm still

not getting answers. Ann McKernan ending that

:09:46.:09:56.

report by Emma Vardy. But let's find out

:09:57.:10:00.

what the weather's up 16 Celsius today, not bad for the

:10:01.:10:16.

time of year. Further west, look at this gap to the south of Irdland.

:10:17.:10:20.

It's going to be coming our way as we look to the weather for tomorrow.

:10:21.:10:25.

Overnight tonight, patchy cloud across the south of the reghon.

:10:26.:10:28.

There could be a few mist p`tches developing in rural areas in the

:10:29.:10:32.

north. Temperatures 10-11 for most of us, not desperately cold.

:10:33.:10:36.

Tomorrow morning any mist Whll Claye quickly. The cloud in the South

:10:37.:10:40.

breaking up. Decent sunny spells for a time during the morning btt it's

:10:41.:10:44.

one of those days where clotd will tend to come and go a bit. Ht will

:10:45.:10:50.

stay dry and it will be a bht milder with temperatures up to 17. What

:10:51.:10:53.

about the weekend? We have ` big area of high-pressure settlhng the

:10:54.:10:56.

weather down. This is for S`turday and Sunday. The weather is staying

:10:57.:11:00.

fine and dry and on the mild side. My colleague Helen

:11:01.:11:02.

fine and dry and on the mild side. My colleague Helen Willetts has with

:11:03.:11:04.

the national picture. Good evening. The dry October

:11:05.:11:13.

weather is set to continue into the weekend. It's been kind if you've

:11:14.:11:17.

been on half term. Not that I'm promising this sort of weather for

:11:18.:11:21.

all. Isn't it lovely, taken on the Isle of Wight. Our top temperature

:11:22.:11:26.

was 17 Celsius, not too far away. What a lovely and to the date here

:11:27.:11:30.

at Mansfield Woodhouse. We have had some sunshine and warmth. It is set

:11:31.:11:36.

to continue, but the fly in the ointment is a weakening weather

:11:37.:11:40.

friend. It's edging southwards. To the south we are seeing patchy mist

:11:41.:11:44.

and dense fog, around potentially for the morning. Not as widespread

:11:45.:11:49.

as recently but just as dangerous. Quite mild here but to the north we

:11:50.:11:52.

have chilly air, just briefly, because come the weekend we are all

:11:53.:11:57.

bathed once again in the mild Atlantic air. The chilly air does

mean a touch of rural frost in
