First tonight, a stinging criticism from the Mayor who's called

:00:14.:00:19.

the Prime Minister "the most anti-London party leader"

:00:20.:00:21.

But Theresa May ignored the criticism as she met

:00:22.:00:29.

Conservative candidates in north-west London.

:00:30.:00:31.

However, the issue of immigration - and its role in the city's economy -

:00:32.:00:34.

has emerged as one deep difference between them.

:00:35.:00:36.

Our Political Editor, Tim Donovan, reports.

:00:37.:00:40.

In her approach to business and to the capital's rail services,

:00:41.:00:45.

from our funding for schools to her policy on air quality,

:00:46.:00:48.

today the Prime Minister was under fire from the Mayor.

:00:49.:00:52.

I think Theresa May has shown by her actions since she became

:00:53.:00:54.

Prime Minister she is an anti-London Prime Minister.

:00:55.:00:56.

She's taking money away from our schools, our policing,

:00:57.:01:00.

not helping businesses in London with the business rates hike.

:01:01.:01:02.

I've never seen such an anti-London leader of a mainstream

:01:03.:01:05.

But a war of words there was not - because appearing this morning

:01:06.:01:13.

with her candidates lined up for London's seats, she ignored both

:01:14.:01:16.

In their choice is, do they want to get the best possible

:01:17.:01:22.

deal out of the Brexit negotiations, the best deal for Britain,

:01:23.:01:25.

To do that, we need a strong hand in those negotiations,

:01:26.:01:30.

and that is a strong hand from me and from my team, and that can be

:01:31.:01:33.

gained by supporting my local candidates here in London.

:01:34.:01:37.

The alternative is a coalition of chaos, led by Jeremy Corbyn.

:01:38.:01:41.

Limiting that to 100,000 a year across the UK would mean,

:01:42.:01:51.

on current proportions, a limit of approximately

:01:52.:01:53.

Hello, Jason from CFS, how can I help?

:01:54.:01:59.

This company recruiting EU nurses to hospitals here says they have

:02:00.:02:02.

become integral to the NHS, but for how much longer?

:02:03.:02:07.

We are highly dependent on EU nurses, and we have seen the number

:02:08.:02:11.

of them entering the system decreasing by 92%, and the number

:02:12.:02:15.

of nurses leaving the NHS at the moment has increased by 68%

:02:16.:02:18.

And that's happening already, we haven't even had Brexit?

:02:19.:02:21.

Along with the Mayor, business groups have argued

:02:22.:02:25.

for special London visas or permits after Brexit.

:02:26.:02:27.

We have recognised the need to ensure that where there

:02:28.:02:33.

are skills shortages, those can be met, that the brightest

:02:34.:02:36.

and best are welcomed here in the UK, and we will continue

:02:37.:02:39.

What will be different once we leave the EU is we will also be able

:02:40.:02:46.

to set our own rules for people coming from inside the EU

:02:47.:02:49.

into the UK, but we will continue to recognise the need to ensure

:02:50.:02:52.

the brightest and the best are welcome and able to come to the UK.

:02:53.:02:56.

You're not going to give special arrangements to London, then?

:02:57.:02:58.

We will ensure that we have the rules on immigration that

:02:59.:03:01.

will provide for the economy, and that is the economy in London

:03:02.:03:03.

We want to be able to continue to attract talent,

:03:04.:03:10.

that is one of the reasons why we are the greatest

:03:11.:03:13.

When I speak to chief executives across London,

:03:14.:03:16.

when I speak to innovators, when I speak to investors,

:03:17.:03:18.

when I speak to those in construction, when I speak

:03:19.:03:20.

to those in the NHS, when I speak to those in teaching,

:03:21.:03:23.

all of them are telling me the importance of attracting

:03:24.:03:26.

The Mayor may think he speaks for the capital, but she has

:03:27.:03:30.

a mandate for Brexit across the UK and could have a further mandate

:03:31.:03:33.

A mother who believes her son took his own life after getting

:03:34.:03:40.

into debt says more needs to be done to regulate the industry

:03:41.:03:43.

The 20-year-old was given two driving fines which quickly

:03:44.:03:50.

This is the last footage there is of Jerome Rogers.

:03:51.:03:57.

It is from a body camera worn by a bailiff who had come to collect

:03:58.:04:01.

It started because of two fines of ?65 each.

:04:02.:04:08.

After the bailiff clamped Jerome's bike, he then sat in his car

:04:09.:04:11.

While he was there, that's when Jerome left the house and went

:04:12.:04:16.

Jerome had already paid ?800 but was told on this day

:04:17.:04:21.

The bike he needed to work as a courier was clamped and a request

:04:22.:04:28.

I said to you about setting up a payment scheme

:04:29.:04:32.

At the end of the day, you now have a balance of ?1019.

:04:33.:04:44.

As the bailiff waited outside, Jerome was applying for payday loans

:04:45.:04:47.

He was found dead by his brother the next day.

:04:48.:04:54.

The only time it actually does feel real to me is when I go

:04:55.:04:57.

up to my son's grave and I see his name there.

:04:58.:05:00.

At an inquest into Jerome's death, a coroner expressed concerns

:05:01.:05:11.

about some of the practices of Newlands debt collection agency,

:05:12.:05:15.

although she said the bailiff himself had been reasonable.

:05:16.:05:17.

But several charities are calling on tougher

:05:18.:05:19.

We have found that, despite the new regulations in 2013,

:05:20.:05:25.

we are still experiencing the same problems when it comes to bailiffs,

:05:26.:05:31.

Newlands did not respond to our request for a comment,

:05:32.:05:33.

but the Civil Enforcement Association say that it is important

:05:34.:05:35.

that members protect the vulnerable when collecting debts.

:05:36.:05:39.

Figures out today from charity Christians Against Poverty say that

:05:40.:05:42.

of the 1200 clients they saw last year, three quarters

:05:43.:05:46.

sought medical attention while facing financial problems.

:05:47.:05:51.

38% have thought about suicide while just over one in ten

:05:52.:05:54.

had actually attempted to take their own life.

:05:55.:05:58.

That is twice as many as the year before.

:05:59.:06:02.

Jerome's friends raised thousands for his funeral and everyone that

:06:03.:06:05.

loved him wishes he had asked them for help.

:06:06.:06:07.

And if you or anyone you know needs advice on debt,

City of London Corporation has dismissed concerns that Emmanuel

:06:33.:06:38.

Macron, a former banker, will tempt significant business away from our

:06:39.:06:39.

capital to Paris. When they met in Paris recently,

:06:40.:06:40.

London's mayor was left in no doubt that Emmanuel Macron hoped

:06:41.:06:47.

to capitalise on Brexit nerves. His ambition - to make the French

economy and that won't change as a result of Brexit and it

:07:58.:08:01.

won't change as a result of Macron. A month ago the European Union

:08:02.:08:06.

looked to be in a parlous state. With this emphatic win

:08:07.:08:10.

by President Macron, and the alignment with Germany,

:08:11.:08:12.

it makes the European Union look pretty strong now

:08:13.:08:15.

and they are probably in their best negotiating position they have been

:08:16.:08:18.

for a very long time but the idea that London will lose its prowess

:08:19.:08:21.

as a leading world financial The election result has led

:08:22.:08:24.

to fighting talk from the man behind the project to try to steal away

to try to encourage banks But is the uneasiness

:08:43.:08:45.

here in the city justified? I think there's always a bit

:08:46.:08:53.

of a panic when things are new, It probably will happen but it's

:08:54.:08:56.

going to be the junior people that go and that's what people

:08:57.:09:07.

need to realise. Not necessarily the senior people

:09:08.:09:09.

who will want to stay in London. So yes, it might happen,

:09:10.:09:12.

there are probably quite a few million people in this country

:09:13.:09:14.

who might be happy For now then, London

:09:15.:09:17.

is talking a confident game, but these commuters could be

BBC London News. I'll say goodnight now and let's see

:09:24.:09:30.

how the weather's shaping May feels like it's

:09:31.:09:32.

struggling a bit? It feels more like March! There is a

:09:33.:09:43.

chained under way in the middle part of the week and we will get some

:09:44.:09:47.

sunshine. It will start feeling warm as well but it will come at a cost

:09:48.:09:52.

and we will lose the settled weather but has an heavy showers but we

:09:53.:09:55.

could do with the rain. High pressure has been in charge for ages

:09:56.:10:00.

and it is now in a pincer movement by two low-pressure systems and it

:10:01.:10:05.

is this on to the south that moves up on Friday and will introduce some

:10:06.:10:09.

heavy rain now and then. We will keep on it, but no such problems

:10:10.:10:13.

tonight because once again it will be dry, Saint-Cloud around but

:10:14.:10:18.

enough clear sky for temperatures to fall back, already into single

:10:19.:10:23.

figures -- some cloud around. The south of London in particular with a

:10:24.:10:28.

touch of frost, but nothing severe. A chilly start tomorrow, the wind

:10:29.:10:33.

from the north-east, still a fair amount of cloud around but some

:10:34.:10:35.

bright and sunny spells and it might be feeling a touch warmer tomorrow

:10:36.:10:41.

with temperatures reaching 16 in central London. A sunny day on

:10:42.:10:45.

Wednesday and temperatures should be at the average for May of 17 degrees

:10:46.:10:49.

and then left settled as the week goes on and we could get a shower on

:10:50.:10:53.

Thursday, it will be warming up and feel quite humid, and heavy showers

:10:54.:10:59.

on Friday. At the weekend, we start with some sunshine and showers, it

:11:00.:11:03.

will become drier and feel warm. Now the National forecast.

:11:04.:11:08.

Good evening. A quiet day on the weather front but we still managed

:11:09.:11:17.

to have some huge contrasts in the weather. This was a beautiful
