Tributes have been paid to a 15-year-old boy,
who was stabbed to death outside his school
yesterday afternoon in front of his classmates.
The head teacher said Quamari Barnes was a pupil with a bright
future who'll be missed by the entire school community.
Our home affairs correspondent, Nick Beake, reports from Kensal Green.
At the school gates, just metres from where their loved
one was killed, a family grieved, surrounded by friends who only
and jokes with the latest teenager to be murdered in London.
15-year-old Quamari Barnes was heard to shout, "He's going to stab me",
One boy, who didn't want to show his face,
told us he could only watch as his friend slipped away.
He was the most nice person in the whole of our school,
It was emotional because I gave him a hug and said, "get home safely"
and I come out of school and see that's he's stabbed.
All these teenagers running about out here with knives
As the police looked for evidence near the school,
it's emerged they'd arrested another 15-year-old boy, not a pupil here.
Detectives say the motive for the killing is not clear,
a killing which has clearly hit this community hard.
We're all deeply saddened by this death.
It's undoubtedly a tragic loss of life and our thoughts and prayers
are with the boy's family and those who knew and loved him.
Had a very bright future and he'll be greatly missed by his many
friends in school and in fact by the entire school community.
And for Rebecca who went to this school and knew the family well,
I just saw a picture of him with RIP and I was just like - oh my gosh.

I've been defending it against someone who wanted to abuse it.
Rachel Weisz now portrays Deborah in the film Denial,
with Timothy Spall as her infamous adversary, Irving.
Let me reveal something to you, Professor.
I am that David Irving about whom you have been so rude.
And it puzzles me that you think yourself qualified to attack me,
given that I have 30 years' experience in the archive.
And was this your most challenging role to date?
I would say it always felt like it was going to be a challenge,
because I know he's a controversial character, and he's alive,
So my job as a human being, I have a responsibility
I have to conclude that the reason you don't engage with people
you disagree with is because you can't!
Denial was shot predominantly in the capital, where

Can you put into words what it was like taking
on this very abrasive, London historian?
Well, it was frightening at the beginning, because I didn't
know how I would do it, what I would do, and calling
the historian because as we proved he lies and he manipulates
There were moments that were really scary.
This case is happening to you, but it's not about you.
This man hates me, he's coming for me.
And when someone comes after you, you take him on.
Why do you think he specifically targeted Deborah?
I think one of the motivations, as I see it from his point of view,
Was that he was protecting his professional reputation,
his existence, because I presume he made the assumption that
being called a Holocaust denier would affect sales of his books.
All involved can see that Denial is a timely film,
considering the current talk in politics of alternative truths,
Promotional posters have already been defaced across London.
They wait until the Tube stop is empty and no one's there,
and then they take out a black magic marker and they write something.

It seemed milder today. Well observed.
Well, observed. Temperatures in High Wycombe and elsewhere in London and

figures. We finish with beautiful clear skies
as you can see and the temperature out there is falling, so the Met
Office is warning of more fog patches forming throughout the
night. Dense in places, freezing in places. Lots of moisture in the air
and where the temperature falls below freezing, all that will stick
to everything. There could be difficult driving continues on
untreated roads tomorrow morning. This is the picture throughout the
night. Fog forming here and there and temperatures falling underneath
clear skies. But towards the end of the night temperatures in the
south-east hovering just above freezing, because there a little
cloud creeping in. That will mix up with the fog, lift up into the cloud
but it'll trap cold air. We won't have the benefit of the sunshine to.
It'll feel chilly throughout the afternoon with highs of three to
six. I don't think you'll see double figures tomorrow. For Thursday, a
slow movement towards something brighter. That is because we have
south-easterly wind and very dry air starting to come in. On Wednesday
and Thursday we could see some snow grains in the air. Feeling more like
minus-4 than 4 with the strength of the wind and dryness in the air,
despite the sunshine we'll have on Thursday. On the outlook you can see
something a little milder: For all of us, it'll get colder and
then milder again come the weekend. This shot taken earlier by a weather
watcher in East Anglia. The fog becoming extensive over the next few
hours in many south-eastern parts of England.
Much, much milder, further north and west. Let's
