Neighbours of a care home in Hertfordshire have praised
the bravery of firefighters who rescued more than 30 elderly
residents after a fire ripped through the building,
Locals have rallied round to help survivors who've lost everything.
It was a fierce fire which spread rapidly.
A neighbour managed to capture the blaze at its peak.
Over 60 firefighters fought for a day to put it out.
When they arrived they were also faced with the challenge of rescuing
more than 30 elderly people who, because of disability
or age, were trapped inside the burning building.
Today firefighters were praised for their work that night.
The firefighters themselves say they just doing their job.
Our firefighters undertook a systematic search of the building,
sometimes having to physically lift and carry the residents
from the building, or get them to walk assisted down a ladder
pitched to the outside face of the building.
That is quite a challenge given the roof was ablaze.
The crews worked extremely hard in difficult circumstances
This fire broke out in the early hours of Saturday morning
and as neighbours awoke, they brought out clothes
and blankets to help those who were rescued from this building.

An investigation into the cause of the fire is still under way,

When it comes to work-life balance, working fewer hours is probably
an unaffordable dream for many Londoners.
But in other European capitals, it has increased productivity
Well, one group campaigning to make a shorter working
London is still, by and large, a 9-5 city with most commuters
travelling to their 40 hour a week jobs at roughly the same

He volunteered at the Grasshopper's Nursery in Hackney,
which qualifies his boys for reduced childcare costs.
This was the only way to make it work financially but he says
I think there's a big psychological barrier to going flexible
or part-time here in London and I know a lot of my friends
who work full-time and couldn't conceive of going part-time.
And I made that transition about five years ago,
But, ultimately, I think having a bit less but having more time
for the kids and the children is actually much,
In Iceland's capital, a new timetable is being established

It's a system which some economists are championing here.
They've started giving their public sector employees a 35 hour week
And they are seeing increases in productivity and reduced stress
levels and people staying on in the workforce for longer.
Then you've got countries like the Netherlands,

people, people who are passionate about an interest, be
that the novel they're writing, or the sports they love
or the volunteering they do, and a five-day week really limits
the amount you can give and develop those passions and talents.
Building a new routine around shorter hours is a risk,

But the message from cities where thousands of workers have
cut their hours is that quality of life and productivity

Good evening, the weather for the week ahead in London might not be
too much like yesterday but if you got outdoor plant it's not too bad.
Mostly dry conditions with some sunny spells and temperatures will
be average. This was yesterday, perfect blue skies and it looked
very similar this morning. I hope you were not fooled into thinking we
would have a rerun because there was a drop in temperature, 25 degrees
yesterday, 14 today but that is exceptional and this is average. We
also had a north-westerly wind blowing in behind and it is still
going tonight, not too strong but bringing in that cold air. We also
have clear skies so gardeners, be aware, if you are in a spot prone to

to 16 or 17 degrees in central London and it will be dry. That goes
for the week ahead, we will have largely cloudy conditions, some
sunny spells but dry conditions and a bit breezy, especially on
Wednesday. The outlook for Easter weekend, more of the same, some rain
on Saturday morning but otherwise mostly dry with some sunny spells
and feeling cool at times. If you have plans going out of London, you
will have to keep an eye on the National forecast with Matt Taylor.
Good evening. Let's cut to the chase the first big holiday weekend of the
year is on the horizon and if you consider last weekend as a taster
for the summer, this weekend is not looking too bad. It will be a bit
cooler, temperatures this week and closer to where they should be at
this time of the year thanks to the north-west breed and the reason for
that, if we look at the jet stream, coming across the
