Three men have been charged by police after trouble broke out


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


Despite the heavy security presence, stewards struggled to


contain the violence, prompting more questions


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


West Ham says its identified 20 people who will receive


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


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


inside the former Olympic Stadium, and were held apart only


Seats were ripped up and thrown as tensions between supportdrs


boiled over in the closing minutes of the game.


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


outside the stadium before and after the match.


But the ugly scenes left many fans, including children,


We were watching the game in the front row,


Suddenly there were coins coming over and my daughter Victorha


got hit by seven coins all over her body.


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


Other kids were hit, in the disabled section.


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


In a statement, the club said:


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


For those kinds of things to happen, especially


West Ham became tenants at the London Stadium in August


and the control of stewarding and security is the responshbility


It has made changes to how fans are segregated,


following isolated outbreaks of trouble earlier this season,


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


amendments to the stadium are now needed.


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


and the Premier League about what they are looking to do


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


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


The Football Association has launched an investigation.


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


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


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


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


that the massive deregulation which took place 30 years ago -


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


Trading used take place facd to face between certain


controlled trading companies - but afterwards, anyone could trade


Here's Tolu Adeoye with a short history of that


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


Before the Big Bang, trading on the London Stock Exchange


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


It was divided between stockbrokers, who acted for clients,


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


After the Big Bang, everyond could trade with each other


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


Alisdair Haynes was a stock jobber during the Big Bang.


The previous day, you had thousands of people walking


across the market floor, huge noise, and you walk


in on the Monday morning and the traded options markdt


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


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


bringing trillions of dollars of funds from around the world.


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


Justin Urquhart Stewart was working as a stockbroker.


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


because pre-Big Bang, we took the risk ourselves


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


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

if Britain loses access to the European single markdt.

The question everyone is asking - how can London make


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


urged business leaders to join him and impress arising the govdrnment


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


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


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


convicted of the Guildford pub Gerry Conlon, along with his


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


were finally quashed. Emma Vardy has this


exclusive report. In October 1974, bombs rippdd


through two Guildford pubs. Five people were killed


and many more injured. Police were under huge pressure


to apprehend the IRA bombers responsible


for these Surrey attacks. The police and the army camd


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


Gerry Conlon was We were an ordinary Catholic family,


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


Republicans. There was no way that Gerry Conlon


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


in the IRA. The accused were brought to court


from the police stations But the Guildford Four were found


guilty and sentenced Charged as a result


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


of redemption came. The Court of Appeal overturned


their convictions, For something I didn't


know anything about! The case shattered confidence


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


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


convictions was carried out by a High Court judge,


Sir John May. But more than 700 files


from Sir John May's findings remained private, embargoed


by the Government. Now a freedom of information request


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


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


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


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


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


was still going on. I would like to see everythhng


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


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


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


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


of terrible offences and served an enormous


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


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


Tony Blair issued an apologx to the Guildford Four


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


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


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


spokesperson for the IRA, and biographer and friend


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


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


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


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


not getting answers. Ann McKernan ending that


report by Emma Vardy. But let's find out


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

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


the national picture. Good evening. The dry October


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


mean a touch of rural frost in
