Other shoppers at the centre today spoke of their sadness.
Just feel for his family, I really do.
Yeah, our thoughts go out to them really.

Taking place in a shop inside a mall this was an extremely rare incident,

It measures the type of pollution and how much we are

Car drivers are the biggest pollutants, but because of filters
in the engine, they are the least exposed.
It is those of us who get the bus that are exposed to five

But this is the greatest pollutant of them all.

It's emerged that a nine-year-old boy from West London
was investigated by counterterrorism officers - after he stood up
in class and pledged his allegiance to the so-called Islamic state.
Well, Dan Freedman joins me now and this raises all sorts
of questions, what exactly do we know?
Well, these were officers from Prevent and they're the team that
tried to stop people being radicalised before it's too late.
They deal with children, teenagers and adults, they've dealt with more
than 1,000 cases since 2012. This boy was highly intelligent, he
became curious about so-called Islamic State after the Paris
attacks at the end of 2015. Soon he was looking online at some of the
most depraved and violent content of Isis propaganda. His words are
spoken by an actor. The men were walking and then
they were hit and they were told to sit down and that's
when they cut their heads off. So on a weekend like,
because everyone was going outside and playing, so when they all gone
and the house was empty I would go and sit freely
in the living and search up. However, it was when he stood up in
class and declared his sympathy for so-called Islamic State that an
intervention was staged. A Prevent officer spent a year with him
visiting his home regularly, looking at online content with him and
essentially deradicalising him and after a year she believed he was no
longer any kind of threat and his case was closed. It is surprising
there was intervention for someone so young, nine years old.
Absolutely. In a sense Prevent say that's why he was so vulnerable. If
he had gone to a chat room online and met with the wrong people he
could have been even more radicalised than he was having
already watched this violent content and that's the reason they say it
was important to intervene at this stage. Thank you very much.
The death of Anita Szucs, Ben Wales and Karla Roman
all in London, all last week, has brought into sharp
focus the dangers of cycling on our streets.
Today, the husband of Anita Szucs has spoken to this programme
Tamas and his wife Anita on their honeymoon in Japan last year.
The couple met at home in Hungary five years ago.
They moved to London together and were due
to celebrate their first wedding anniversary in just over a week.
She was always cheerful, happy and there was really no one
who wouldn't be affected by her personalitity.
Last Monday, Anita was killed after she was knocked over
on her bike in Edmonton in a suspected hit-and-run.
She had been returning from a late shift at work.
She always cycled because there were no night buses.
I mean, she followed all the rules, everything.
She always had her high-vis vest, lights, helmet,
I was really worried about her safety.
Anita was one of three cyclists killed after collisions
This was the protest on Saturday in Whitehall urging the Government
Tamas says he is speaking out because he wants all road
I just don't want this to remain just a story,
we need to keep this danger in the top of everyone's mind
Two men who were arrested in connection with Anita's death
Tamas says he plans to return to Japan, the place where
he and Anita celebrated their love story to scatter his wife's ashes.
We were going to go back within one or two years anyway and this way
That's it from me. I will hand you over to Wendy for the weather.
Thank you. Not much rain in the forecast over the next few days. The
little that we get might just be for tomorrow. We are going to get a few
showers moving across the London region. Despite that it's going to
be on the mild side once again. A bit of cloud at the moment, that's
been pushing up from the south-west, low cloud, so misty and murky over
higher ground and one or two showers into the early hours of the morning.
It's a mild night, temperatures no lower than seven or eight. You will
feel the benefit of that first thing tomorrow for your commute T will be
on the cloudy side. Through the day we will be watching a few showers
developing. They could be on the heavy side, thunder not out of the
question. Temperatures are in double figures and winds are from the
south-west so not too bad a day and it settles down towards the end of
it. Thursday, a mix of cloud and bright spells, probably a foggy
start. We have to watch that. Temperatures again will be in double
figures. A look at the outlook, there will be plenty more of this
weather into the weekend. A bit of fog around to watch out for.

Hammond with the national forecast now.
Good evening. There is some rain in the forecast but not a lot. Plenty
of dry weather to look forward to as we head to the weekend. Cloud
