who was convicted of handing out leaflets deemed to be

to a warning that would-be foreign fighters who don't manage to travel

in tackling radicalisation head-on and there is concern

without the community trust and engagement,

we can't have conversations, But, especially since the attacks

in London and Manchester, there is a premium on community

from, that's where we get diversions for young people

alert to those issues. We do make sure to remind people

it's really about safeguarding Some of those convicted here have

:02:58.:03:01.

tonight as there are no trains It's the second successive

:03:02.:03:13.

day of disruption. We can get the latest now

:03:14.:03:16.

from Claudia-Liza Armah. Claudia-Lisa, I heard earlier this

:03:17.:03:19.

evening that trains would be running Yes, that was the promise, wasn't

:03:20.:03:34.

it, and I can say that some trains are now back up and running, but a

:03:35.:03:38.

very limited service, far from being back to normal. The earlier issue,

:03:39.:03:42.

the signal problem between Paddington and Slough, has been

:03:43.:03:45.

fixed. As you can imagine, there's a huge backlog. Earlier I was here for

:03:46.:03:51.

the evening programme and there were frantic, chaotic scenes. Hundreds of

:03:52.:03:54.

passengers, many of them angry, demanding to know exactly why they

:03:55.:04:03.

were experiencing a second day of major disruption. I spoke to a few

:04:04.:04:06.

of them. Some of them were saying if they were lucky they were hoping to

:04:07.:04:10.

get home around now. If I get home for 10pm then that will be a

:04:11.:04:13.

victory. My season ticket costs me ?10,000 a year. My last to train

:04:14.:04:16.

journeys this morning and last night were both delayed, by 40 minutes.

:04:17.:04:21.

Now everything is cancelled. That's what I get for ten grand a year.

:04:22.:04:25.

Relative to the amount of tax I pay the cost of the ticket, it's clearly

:04:26.:04:28.

a very disappointing situation. The guy in the middle says it all

:04:29.:04:38.

really, ten grand a year spent on a season ticket to face long delays

:04:39.:04:43.

and cancellations. Let me bring you up-to-date on the situation tonight.

:04:44.:04:46.

Heathrow express is running and back to normal. Trains are running every

:04:47.:04:50.

30 minutes instead of the usual 15 minutes. The great Western Railway

:04:51.:04:55.

train line is also up and running, very limited service though. Some

:04:56.:04:58.

trains remain cancelled. The Heathrow connect service, no trains

:04:59.:05:04.

running at the line. The advice to all passengers is to make sure you

:05:05.:05:07.

check before you travel. Claudia-Liza Armah thank you.

:05:08.:05:10.

In her first interview in office, the new leader of Kensington

:05:11.:05:13.

and Chelsea Council has told BBC London that she doesn't think

:05:14.:05:15.

the council "got it all wrong" after the Grenfell Tower fire -

:05:16.:05:18.

but there will be a review of its actions.

:05:19.:05:21.

Elizabeth Campbell also complimented the way the community

:05:22.:05:22.

responded to the tragedy - although she accepted it

:05:23.:05:25.

probably felt "disconnected" from the council.

:05:26.:05:27.

She spoke to our political rditor, Tim Donovan.

:05:28.:05:32.

It may prove a long, hard task to restore trust

:05:33.:05:35.

and confidence in this community, but the new leader,

:05:36.:05:37.

the new face of the council, says she's listening.

:05:38.:05:41.

I think they do feel, some of them, that they have been

:05:42.:05:44.

Others have said that we have always had great funding,

:05:45.:05:50.

great education, sent loads of children to university.

:05:51.:05:56.

Do you think there has been an unfair characterisation?

:05:57.:05:58.

I think it's a deeply unfair characterisation and I don't think

:05:59.:06:01.

I think it's a bit politically pathetic to start saying

:06:02.:06:10.

that there are rich people who don't care.

:06:11.:06:13.

While the main focus is forward, she accepts she also needs to look

:06:14.:06:22.

review of what went wrong in the early days.

:06:23.:06:25.

A lot of family and children's services, social workers,

:06:26.:06:27.

were there from 5am onwards so they didn't get it

:06:28.:06:30.

all wrong, but obviously we were tried and found wanting.

:06:31.:06:37.

Were your civil emergency procedures up to date and robust?

:06:38.:06:39.

I don't know, that's what I'm about to find out.

:06:40.:06:42.

My instincts are that they probably weren't.

:06:43.:06:52.

What was the taskforce announced yet going to amount to?

:06:53.:07:00.

Is the task force going to be ten people?

:07:01.:07:06.

They haven't given me any indication yet.

:07:07.:07:08.

So it doesn't have much meaning as a task force.

:07:09.:07:11.

She said housing was the priority and survivors needed much more time

:07:12.:07:15.

to consider what was right for them, but the area would recover.

:07:16.:07:18.

What you saw in the aftermath of the fire was an incredibly

:07:19.:07:22.

strong community coming together, binding together.

:07:23.:07:27.

At the moment, there's a disconnect between them and the council

:07:28.:07:30.

and that is a chasm that we're going to have to bridge,

:07:31.:07:33.

but the community is very, very strong, and I absolutely have

:07:34.:07:37.

The leader of Kensington and Chelsea Council,

:07:38.:07:47.

speaking to our political editor, Tim Donovan.

:07:48.:07:49.

Controversial spit hoods will be in every Metropolitan

:07:50.:07:51.

Police custody suite - after Scotland Yard said

:07:52.:07:53.

trails in east London had been successful .

:07:54.:07:55.

They re designed to protect officers from suspects

:07:56.:07:57.

who bite or spit at them - and the force claims

:07:58.:07:59.

the hoods are effective, as long as they're used correctly.

:08:00.:08:02.

But several human rights groups describe them

:08:03.:08:04.

The world's first scan - which gives parents and doctors

:08:05.:08:10.

a much clearer idea of how twins are developing in the womb -

:08:11.:08:13.

has gone into service at St George's Hospital in Tooting.

:08:14.:08:18.

Victoria Hollins explains how it's expected to make pregnancies safer.

:08:19.:08:23.

It's good news for this expectant mum, but she had more

:08:24.:08:33.

When we found that we had twins it was a big shock,

:08:34.:08:38.

But thanks to a world first - a scan using twin growth charts -

:08:39.:08:44.

she knows her baby boys are developing well.

:08:45.:08:47.

Everything is going fine, the babies are growing beautifully.

:08:48.:08:51.

Until now, twins in the womb were measured against charts

:08:52.:08:53.

meant for single babies, so doctors were left

:08:54.:08:56.

to their own judgment to estimate size and growth,

:08:57.:09:00.

and that meant sometimes it was hard to work out if there was a problem.

:09:01.:09:05.

That's because twins are often smaller than single babies,

:09:06.:09:08.

The new charts will reduce what is currently

:09:09.:09:12.

There is evidence that using using twin-specific charts

:09:13.:09:17.

reduces the risks of stillbirths in pregnancy and we are hoping that

:09:18.:09:22.

once we use this chart we will see a reduction in the number of early

:09:23.:09:27.

delivery because of presumed growth problems in the twins.

:09:28.:09:33.

The new charts are based on data from 10,000 scans.

:09:34.:09:36.

Research was funded by existing parents of twins through the Twins

:09:37.:09:40.

The charts at St George's Hospital in Tooting are a world first,

:09:41.:09:45.

but they will be available for parents across the country.

:09:46.:09:58.

A really warm day today. Let's see if it's going to last this week.

:09:59.:10:06.

It was a scorcher of a day, London was the warmest place in the UK, a

:10:07.:10:13.

number of places got to 32 Celsius. No rain for the gardens, it's going

:10:14.:10:18.

to stay warm and muggy overnight, temperatures no lower than 17-18.

:10:19.:10:22.

Tomorrow will be another warm day, not quite as much sunshine as today.

:10:23.:10:26.

There will be some sunshine around. Through the afternoon it looks like

:10:27.:10:30.

the cloud will thicken up, so a few sunny spells here and there, is that

:10:31.:10:35.

of wall-to-wall, like today. 27 degrees, it will be present at

:10:36.:10:37.

Wimbledon for the spectators and players. -- pleasant. This front

:10:38.:10:45.

across the UK will introduce thicker cloud and showers to the region,

:10:46.:10:48.

perhaps more to the north of the region. Through the afternoon they

:10:49.:10:51.

should tempt disallowed. It will turn dry with some sunny spells. A

:10:52.:10:57.

fairly warm day, 23-24. In the Sunday it looks like it might turn

:10:58.:11:01.

warmer but on into Monday, increasing chance of showers.

:11:02.:11:02.

warmer but on into Monday, increasing chance of showers. Here's

:11:03.:11:09.

the National weather. Hello, we managed to cram in a lot

:11:10.:11:12.

of weather today, 32 degrees at Heathrow, nothing like it away to

:11:13.:11:16.

the north-west of Scotland, where it was as dull as that and wet at

:11:17.:11:20.

times. It was absolutely glorious across some parts of southern

:11:21.:11:24.

Britain, but there has to be a fly in the ointment and it came in the

:11:25.:11:28.

form of some thunderstorms. A wise woman had the sense to take this

:11:29.:11:31.

particular picture as these thunderstorms rolled across the

:11:32.:11:35.

south-east and in the East Anglia and later this afternoon it was

:11:36.:11:39.

North Yorkshire that really got a pounding in places, around the A64,

:11:40.:11:43.

around Malton, I saw 35 millimetres and a couple of hours and virtually

:11:44.:11:49.

as we speak, 10:45pm, it's the turn of Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire

:11:50.:11:52.

the season quite violent thunderstorms. They will take time,

:11:53.:11:57.

probably around midnight or one a four cars 1am before they get away

:11:58.:11:59.

from eastern
