A major review of London security has found that a terrorist `ttack

:00:13.:00:18.

That's why it's recommending the creation of a new super

:00:19.:00:21.

police force for London - merging the Met, City of London

:00:22.:00:25.

The idea has been welcomed by the outgoing Met Commisshoner.

:00:26.:00:30.

Lord Harris, who carried out the review, also wants the dmergency

:00:31.:00:33.

services strengthened to better protect Londoners.

:00:34.:00:35.

Here's our home affairs correspondent Nick Beake.

:00:36.:00:40.

In the shadows, it's home to some of the best spies and policd

:00:41.:00:46.

But terrorists are certain to strike here again.

:00:47.:00:52.

The conclusion of today's rdview into how prepared the capit`l

:00:53.:00:55.

Its most contentious propos`l is to merge the three existhng

:00:56.:01:00.

With the powers of the City of London and British

:01:01.:01:06.

Transport Police forces being transferred to the Met,

:01:07.:01:08.

The Met boss, a man who is leaving his job in a few months said rather

:01:09.:01:17.

We should get improved oper`tional effectiveness and that's wh`t this

:01:18.:01:22.

report is talking about - how to respond to

:01:23.:01:25.

There would also be financial savings.

:01:26.:01:32.

That is a real challenge for public service, how

:01:33.:01:35.

But British Transport Policd insisted that the transport network

:01:36.:01:40.

needs a specialist force, and City police warned any lerger

:01:41.:01:43.

The mayor, who was visiting the control room where the response

:01:44.:01:49.

to any major attack would bd coordinated, wouldn't say

:01:50.:01:52.

if he supported a super police force for London.

:01:53.:01:57.

I welcome any steps to keep us as safe as we possibly can.

:01:58.:02:00.

I will be publishing a response once we have considered the revidw

:02:01.:02:03.

In all, today's review has 027 different recommendations

:02:04.:02:09.

Its main message is that London is now better prepared than ever

:02:10.:02:17.

for a major terrorist attack, and the possibility of one

:02:18.:02:20.

The attacks in Nice, Paris and Brussels in the p`st year

:02:21.:02:27.

The review also looked at the number of firearms officers in London.

:02:28.:02:34.

It concluded that when Scotland Yard completes its recruitment

:02:35.:02:37.

of an extra 600 officers - bringing the total number to 28 0 -

:02:38.:02:42.

If you really wanted to improve the response time and of cotrse

:02:43.:02:48.

in five or six minutes, if this was somebody with attomatic

:02:49.:02:50.

weaponry you could have an `wful lot of casualties, that would rdquire

:02:51.:02:54.

a massive increase and we rdally would notice then how many

:02:55.:02:58.

were armed police there werd around, and having been in cities

:02:59.:03:02.

and countries where it's much more the norm I'm not sure that lakes

:03:03.:03:05.

It actually makes them feel more nervous.

:03:06.:03:09.

Another proposal is to run ` trial of an SMS or text alert system.

:03:10.:03:14.

No matter where you are your phone would automatically receive

:03:15.:03:16.

a message, giving details of a major terrorist attack that was unfolding.

:03:17.:03:21.

Keeping a watchful eye on London is a massive task.

:03:22.:03:24.

This review calls for the use of more CCTV cameras.

:03:25.:03:28.

It also says that beyond the capital, our borders nedd to be

:03:29.:03:30.

more secure to stop weapons being smuggled in.

:03:31.:03:34.

Weapons that could be used in an attack.

:03:35.:03:42.

Health officials in Croydon are planning to stop

:03:43.:03:44.

providing free IVF treatment in the borough's NHS hospit`ls.

:03:45.:03:48.

It would make it the first London borough to do so.

:03:49.:03:50.

With each cycle of treatment costing around ?5,000, Croydon's Clhnical

:03:51.:03:54.

Commissioning Group say they can't afford it,

:03:55.:03:57.

as they look to save millions from their budget.

:03:58.:04:00.

For some, playing in a park with their children is a drdam,

:04:01.:04:07.

but nature won't allow it to be a reality.

:04:08.:04:10.

When couples face a problem conceiving, they can turn

:04:11.:04:13.

Here in Croydon, though, that soon may not be possible.

:04:14.:04:18.

The local health service saxs it needs to save money

:04:19.:04:20.

and it's suggesting scrapping all IVF services.

:04:21.:04:25.

Last week, the Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said plans

:04:26.:04:27.

He said, no budget savings should impact on patient care.

:04:28.:04:34.

If this happens in Croydon, it will be a very

:04:35.:04:37.

We have seen three areas in the East of England

:04:38.:04:41.

decommission their services entirely, with others

:04:42.:04:43.

threatening similar action, and if Croydon takes this step

:04:44.:04:45.

I really worry that others will seek to go down

:04:46.:04:48.

Croydon Clinical Commissionhng Group says it hasn't got a bottomless

:04:49.:04:55.

budget and it has to make difficult decisions.

:04:56.:04:58.

It has said, though, it want to reassure residents

:04:59.:05:01.

here that it hasn't made anx certain decisions and it will

:05:02.:05:03.

I don't think it's very fair to mums - well, not to mums -

:05:04.:05:11.

to women who live in Croydon and try to conceive and they can't do this.

:05:12.:05:15.

I conceived naturally but it can happen to any lady,

:05:16.:05:18.

It's definitely something I would have explored

:05:19.:05:22.

if I couldn't have children, and to know that wouldn't bd

:05:23.:05:26.

available and wouldn't be an option is quite shocking.

:05:27.:05:31.

When it comes to IVF treatment, where you live c`n

:05:32.:05:33.

make all the difference to the care you're given.

:05:34.:05:35.

For example, if you live in Camden you're entitled to three ch`nces

:05:36.:05:38.

But in neighbouring Haringex you can only have one.

:05:39.:05:43.

Croydon's consulting on whether to take away that

:05:44.:05:45.

entitlement altogether, which will make it similar

:05:46.:05:48.

Across all the boroughs, there are different rules.

:05:49.:05:54.

For example, the woman's agd, whether either the man or woman

:05:55.:05:58.

has had a child before, and how long they've been together.

:05:59.:06:03.

Croydon Health Services need to save nearly ?6 million.

:06:04.:06:06.

IVF costs the borough just tnder ?800,000 last year.

:06:07.:06:09.

Now, the debate starts on whether this is a saving worth making.

:06:10.:06:12.

I'll wish you goodnight and a great weekend,

:06:13.:06:24.

and hand you over to Darren Bett with the weather.

:06:25.:06:30.

We have a dirty high over the south-east this weekend. I should

:06:31.:06:36.

explain what that is. It's ` high pressure that's been contamhnated

:06:37.:06:39.

with cloud. You are not going to see much sunshine, but it will be mild.

:06:40.:06:44.

We have cloudy skies overnight. Any breaks could lead to mist or fog

:06:45.:06:49.

patches out of town, probably should be gone by the end of the nhght and

:06:50.:06:53.

those temperatures are not dropping much. 13 degrees the minimul in some

:06:54.:06:57.

areas. Because we have cloud, temperatures will not rise luch

:06:58.:07:08.

during the day. It's still liles. There may be brighter skies in the

:07:09.:07:11.

afternoon tomorrow, a glimpse of sunshine. The winds Vari-Lite.

:07:12.:07:13.

Temperatures up to 15-16, pretty good for this time of the ydar.

:07:14.:07:15.

Miles, cloudy start on Sund`y. A repeat performance, again a glimpse

:07:16.:07:20.

of sunshine if you are luckx, temperatures not changing mtch. A

:07:21.:07:24.

gentle breeze from the East, highs of 15-16. It's a quiet, largely

:07:25.:07:29.

cloudy weekend and more of the same to come into the beginning of next

:07:30.:07:31.

week as well. Now the to come into the beginning of next

:07:32.:07:34.

week as well. Now the national picture.

:07:35.:07:39.

Hello, it's been a pretty good week for getting out and enjoying the

:07:40.:07:45.

autumn colours, especially if you have seen autumn sunshine. What

:07:46.:07:51.

sunshine, if you have been in Manchester or the Wirral, damp in

:07:52.:07:56.

places. Ty Gifford had it better, and Deal in Kent, with sunshine

:07:57.:08:00.

It's high pressure and settled weather but the flow of air may be

:08:01.:08:04.

mild but winning in moisture, not necessarily in the form of rain

:08:05.:08:07.

Many others will be staying dry but in the form of cloud. Some mild

:08:08.:08:13.

made it cloudy this weekend and patchy fog overnight and into the

:08:14.:08:17.

morning. Perhaps misty and murky across western hills of Britain

:08:18.:08:21.

through the night. England and Wales seeing patchy lower-level fog,

:08:22.:08:25.

developing into Northern Ireland as well, once we shift the drizzle

:08:26.:08:29.

some of that in northern England and West of Scotland. Eastern Scotland

:08:30.:08:33.
