Good evening and welcome to BBC London News.
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

The question now is whether it will stay as strong
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
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
