it's time for the news where you are.

:00:00.:00:14.

Two boys are being treated for life-threatening injuries

:00:15.:00:23.

They were rescued from a home on Beambridge Road in Pitsea

:00:24.:00:27.

Our reporter Robby West has been speaking to one of the local

:00:28.:00:31.

residents who helped rescue the children trapped inside.

:00:32.:00:33.

At around 3:15pm today, Essex Fire Rescue were called

:00:34.:00:36.

to the scene of a house fire in Basildon.

:00:37.:00:38.

Two children were rescued from a single-storey

:00:39.:00:39.

A 13-year-old was flown by air ambulance to the Royal London

:00:40.:00:46.

Hospital, while a ten-year-old was taken to Basildon

:00:47.:00:48.

Straightaway, I seen smoke piling out the house.

:00:49.:00:56.

She said there was a baby trapped around the other side, so I

:00:57.:01:02.

ran round the front, smashed the windows at the front.

:01:03.:01:05.

As I know, smoke rises, and I was trying to get

:01:06.:01:07.

end of the building, saying the baby's trapped in the bathroom.

:01:08.:01:18.

So I came round, but the smoke was far

:01:19.:01:20.

too thick to gain access deep enough into the house to get

:01:21.:01:23.

There was another guy behind me, holding onto my foot in

:01:24.:01:27.

case I passed out or couldn't get back out myself,

:01:28.:01:29.

the door, so by this point, after about 12 minutes,

:01:30.:01:34.

the Fire Brigade turned up, from the time I first got there.

:01:35.:01:37.

And I stayed at the back of the house and guided them through

:01:38.:01:41.

with their torches, because it was that thick.

:01:42.:01:43.

Tonight, the teenage boy is said to be in a serious but stable

:01:44.:01:49.

The ten-year-old's condition is said to be

:01:50.:01:52.

The fire was extinguished late this afternoon.

:01:53.:01:56.

Anyone with information is being asked to contact the police on 101.

:01:57.:02:01.

Detectives investigating a fatal stabbing on a bus in central London

:02:02.:02:12.

have charged a 38-year-old man with murder.

:02:13.:02:14.

Archie Sheppard, who was 48, was found dead on the top deck

:02:15.:02:17.

of a 189 bus in Marylebone on Thursday night.

:02:18.:02:19.

John Doherty, who's from Fulham, has been charged with

:02:20.:02:21.

murder and possession of an offensive weapon.

:02:22.:02:24.

Police believe both men got on the bus at Brent Cross.

:02:25.:02:29.

Labour has said it would introduce tougher standards for rented housing

:02:30.:02:31.

in London and "call time on bad landlords"- that's if it wins

:02:32.:02:34.

Councils would be given powers to license landlords

:02:35.:02:41.

and to fine those who fail to meet the requirements.

:02:42.:02:44.

The plans follow a scheme introduced in one London borough last year.

:02:45.:02:47.

An early surprise and a snap inspection.

:02:48.:02:52.

These sorts of raids happen twice a week in Newham.

:02:53.:03:01.

It's been singled out as the council that's

:03:02.:03:03.

toughest in London on

:03:04.:03:04.

There's quite a serious gas leak in this property.

:03:05.:03:08.

We think it's coming from the cooker.

:03:09.:03:11.

You need a licence to rent out a house or a

:03:12.:03:17.

flat here and the council's prosecuted more than 1,000 people

:03:18.:03:20.

they think aren't keeping their properties in good enough condition.

:03:21.:03:22.

It's this example that Labour wants to build on

:03:23.:03:27.

They say you have more rights buying a fridge than

:03:28.:03:32.

In London, you see some of the worst of anywhere in

:03:33.:03:35.

Faulty wiring, serious damp and vermin and our plan to put

:03:36.:03:39.

proper consumer rights in place for those renters will start

:03:40.:03:42.

The Conservatives have dismissed Labour's plan as

:03:43.:03:48.

They argue that the tenants would bear

:03:49.:03:53.

the cost of any new regulation in the form of higher rent.

:03:54.:03:56.

Instead, they argue that the way you deal with

:03:57.:03:58.

the problem of rogue landlords is to deal with them one by one.

:03:59.:04:01.

Good morning. Hi, sorry to disturb you.

:04:02.:04:03.

Last week, London's Mayor announced he will set up

:04:04.:04:12.

an online database to name and shame dodgy landlords.

:04:13.:04:14.

But with private tenants now outnumbering homeowners

:04:15.:04:16.

in London, and rents rising faster here than anywhere

:04:17.:04:18.

else in the country, some argue regulating

:04:19.:04:20.

The Liberal Democrats are absolutely committed

:04:21.:04:25.

to the nine million people in this country

:04:26.:04:27.

who rent, to make sure that

:04:28.:04:28.

it is not seen as a second-class option, to protect them and give

:04:29.:04:31.

Because the reality is, we need to build more

:04:32.:04:35.

And that's a problem that no major party has

:04:36.:04:38.

Before we go, look at this. They cat had to be rescued after taking an

:04:39.:04:56.

unexpected dip this week. An unknown man came to the cat's rescue,
