Tributes have been paid to a 15-year-old boy,

:00:15.:00:26.

who was stabbed to death outside his school

:00:27.:00:30.

yesterday afternoon in front of his classmates.

:00:31.:00:35.

The head teacher said Quamari Barnes was a pupil with a bright

:00:36.:00:39.

future who'll be missed by the entire school community.

:00:40.:00:43.

Our home affairs correspondent, Nick Beake, reports from Kensal Green.

:00:44.:00:47.

At the school gates, just metres from where their loved

:00:48.:00:52.

one was killed, a family grieved, surrounded by friends who only

:00:53.:00:56.

and jokes with the latest teenager to be murdered in London.

:00:57.:01:03.

15-year-old Quamari Barnes was heard to shout, "He's going to stab me",

:01:04.:01:09.

One boy, who didn't want to show his face,

:01:10.:01:17.

told us he could only watch as his friend slipped away.

:01:18.:01:21.

He was the most nice person in the whole of our school,

:01:22.:01:25.

It was emotional because I gave him a hug and said, "get home safely"

:01:26.:01:28.

and I come out of school and see that's he's stabbed.

:01:29.:01:31.

All these teenagers running about out here with knives

:01:32.:01:38.

As the police looked for evidence near the school,

:01:39.:01:53.

it's emerged they'd arrested another 15-year-old boy, not a pupil here.

:01:54.:01:58.

Detectives say the motive for the killing is not clear,

:01:59.:02:02.

a killing which has clearly hit this community hard.

:02:03.:02:06.

We're all deeply saddened by this death.

:02:07.:02:10.

It's undoubtedly a tragic loss of life and our thoughts and prayers

:02:11.:02:15.

are with the boy's family and those who knew and loved him.

:02:16.:02:20.

Had a very bright future and he'll be greatly missed by his many

:02:21.:02:28.

friends in school and in fact by the entire school community.

:02:29.:02:31.

And for Rebecca who went to this school and knew the family well,

:02:32.:02:35.

I just saw a picture of him with RIP and I was just like - oh my gosh.

:02:36.:02:42.

Quamari Barnes is the second teenager to be stabbed

:02:43.:03:01.

The number of young people being injured with knives has gone

:03:02.:03:08.

Well, tonight, the Metropolitan Police are appealing directly to any

:03:09.:03:15.

Detectives insist their information could be vital.

:03:16.:03:21.

There's still disruption tonight on rail services

:03:22.:03:25.

in the South East, after a train derailed

:03:26.:03:29.

Thousands of commuters were affected by delays and cancellations.

:03:30.:03:36.

Network Rail says it's working round the clock

:03:37.:03:40.

to try to get services back to normal for passengers.

:03:41.:03:44.

Just before 6am, when this freight train derailed in Lewisham,

:03:45.:04:03.

Network Rail, which is investigating the cause of the derailment,

:04:04.:04:07.

Both Network Rail and Southeastern expect disruption to

:04:08.:04:25.

We spoke to some commuters during the rush-hour on how they planned on

:04:26.:04:36.

getting home. You can see from the board there's

:04:37.:04:39.

three trains going out. General frustration

:04:40.:04:49.

all round really. Trying to get home,

:04:50.:04:54.

looking on the website, Now it's just saying they have

:04:55.:04:58.

technical difficulties. I don't know how I'm

:04:59.:05:04.

going to get home. Yeah, the South-Eastearnrailway.

:05:05.:05:09.

:05:10.:05:19.

the crowd to be less and then I might take the DLR

:05:20.:05:32.

or something like that. No, because there is too many

:05:33.:05:35.

people so I don't like it. No, I'm just going to wait

:05:36.:05:42.

and probably going to go For the full picture tomorrow, tune

:06:06.:06:07.

An explosion at a block of flats in hornchurch may have been caused by

:06:08.:06:11.

the preparation of drugs according to the Metropolitan Police. Two men

:06:12.:06:15.

have been arrested, following the blast, which caused part of the

:06:16.:06:17.

building to partially collapse. Four people were taken to hospital and 25

:06:18.:06:22.

had to be rescued. The cause of the explosion is not yet known.

:06:23.:06:44.

April 2000, when London historian David Irving faced a humiliating

:06:45.:06:47.

Having sued Penguin books and their American author,

:06:48.:06:50.

Deborah Lipstadt, who had accused him of denying

:06:51.:06:52.

I've been defending it against someone who wanted to abuse it.

:06:53.:06:58.

Rachel Weisz now portrays Deborah in the film Denial,

:06:59.:07:00.

with Timothy Spall as her infamous adversary, Irving.

:07:01.:07:02.

Let me reveal something to you, Professor.

:07:03.:07:03.

I am that David Irving about whom you have been so rude.

:07:04.:07:06.

And it puzzles me that you think yourself qualified to attack me,

:07:07.:07:10.

given that I have 30 years' experience in the archive.

:07:11.:07:13.

And was this your most challenging role to date?

:07:14.:07:15.

I would say it always felt like it was going to be a challenge,

:07:16.:07:18.

because I know he's a controversial character, and he's alive,

:07:19.:07:21.

So my job as a human being, I have a responsibility

:07:22.:07:25.

I have to conclude that the reason you don't engage with people

:07:26.:07:29.

you disagree with is because you can't!

:07:30.:07:31.

Denial was shot predominantly in the capital, where

:07:32.:07:33.

With Deborah Lipstadt closely involved from the time her book

:07:34.:07:37.

Can you put into words what it was like taking

:07:38.:07:41.

on this very abrasive, London historian?

:07:42.:07:46.

Well, it was frightening at the beginning, because I didn't

:07:47.:07:48.

know how I would do it, what I would do, and calling

:07:49.:07:51.

the historian because as we proved he lies and he manipulates

:07:52.:07:57.

There were moments that were really scary.

:07:58.:08:03.

This case is happening to you, but it's not about you.

:08:04.:08:06.

This man hates me, he's coming for me.

:08:07.:08:08.

And when someone comes after you, you take him on.

:08:09.:08:10.

Why do you think he specifically targeted Deborah?

:08:11.:08:13.

I think one of the motivations, as I see it from his point of view,

:08:14.:08:17.

Was that he was protecting his professional reputation,

:08:18.:08:21.

his existence, because I presume he made the assumption that

:08:22.:08:26.

being called a Holocaust denier would affect sales of his books.

:08:27.:08:31.

All involved can see that Denial is a timely film,

:08:32.:08:34.

considering the current talk in politics of alternative truths,

:08:35.:08:36.

Promotional posters have already been defaced across London.

:08:37.:08:41.

They wait until the Tube stop is empty and no one's there,

:08:42.:08:49.

and then they take out a black magic marker and they write something.

:08:50.:08:52.

Why they write on Timothy Spall's face, he's playing

:08:53.:08:54.

That's it from me, so I'll say goodnight and leave you with Wendy

:08:55.:09:08.

It seemed milder today. Well observed.

:09:09.:09:25.

Well, observed. Temperatures in High Wycombe and elsewhere in London and

:09:26.:09:33.

the Home Counties got to 10. Double figures.

:09:34.:09:34.

Wycombe and elsewhere in London and the Home Counties

:09:35.:09:34.

figures. We finish with beautiful clear skies

:09:35.:09:38.

as you can see and the temperature out there is falling, so the Met

:09:39.:09:45.

Office is warning of more fog patches forming throughout the

:09:46.:09:49.

night. Dense in places, freezing in places. Lots of moisture in the air

:09:50.:09:54.

and where the temperature falls below freezing, all that will stick

:09:55.:09:59.

to everything. There could be difficult driving continues on

:10:00.:10:02.

untreated roads tomorrow morning. This is the picture throughout the

:10:03.:10:06.

night. Fog forming here and there and temperatures falling underneath

:10:07.:10:09.

clear skies. But towards the end of the night temperatures in the

:10:10.:10:12.

south-east hovering just above freezing, because there a little

:10:13.:10:16.

cloud creeping in. That will mix up with the fog, lift up into the cloud

:10:17.:10:22.

but it'll trap cold air. We won't have the benefit of the sunshine to.

:10:23.:10:27.

It'll feel chilly throughout the afternoon with highs of three to

:10:28.:10:32.

six. I don't think you'll see double figures tomorrow. For Thursday, a

:10:33.:10:35.

slow movement towards something brighter. That is because we have

:10:36.:10:39.

south-easterly wind and very dry air starting to come in. On Wednesday

:10:40.:10:43.

and Thursday we could see some snow grains in the air. Feeling more like

:10:44.:10:51.

minus-4 than 4 with the strength of the wind and dryness in the air,

:10:52.:10:55.

despite the sunshine we'll have on Thursday. On the outlook you can see

:10:56.:10:58.

something a little milder: For all of us, it'll get colder and

:10:59.:11:18.

then milder again come the weekend. This shot taken earlier by a weather

:11:19.:11:24.

watcher in East Anglia. The fog becoming extensive over the next few

:11:25.:11:29.

hours in many south-eastern parts of England.

:11:30.:11:32.

Much, much milder, further north and west. Let's

:11:33.:11:33.
