Brexit so soft, Research by the BBC shows that
around half the people in the UK convicted of terrorism offences
relating to Syria and Iraq are from Among them is a pensioner
who was convicted of handing out leaflets deemed to be
of an extremist nature. And the convictions have led
to a warning that would-be foreign fighters who don't manage to travel
abroad could instead target Britain. The face of jihad in the UK -
over 100 people jailed for offences linked to so-called Islamic State
and 51 of them are from London Among them, Tarik Hassane
from West London, a medical student and the son of an ambassador,
found guilty of being part of a plot to shoot police
and soldiers, and Nadir Syed, an unemployed Londoner convicted
of planning an attack The terror attack on London Bridge,
one of the Islamist-inspired atrocities in recent months,
two of the men responsible is said to have wanted to go to Syria
to join Islamic State, They are amongst the rising ranks
of thwarted foreign fighters. The Director of Public Prosecutions
told me that could increase We need to be acutely aware that
if people can't go to Syria - and we have certainly seen this
in some of the cases that we have prosecuted -
they may plan an attack here instead or they may do more to radicalise
other people to attack. At this youth centre in East London,
they use activities like boxing to try to engage young people
and fight the extremist ideology, Here they have years of experience
in tackling radicalisation head-on and there is concern
that the Government attempts to clamp down on extremism could end
up alienating Muslim communities. Going into communities,
penetrating the wall of silence, having the credibility and trust,
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
involvement, according to ministers. We have to work with the community
to deliver counterterrorism, that's where we get information
from, that's where we get diversions for young people
if they are being groomed, and so we are incredibly
alert to those issues. We do make sure to remind people
it's really about safeguarding Some of those convicted here have
served their sentences and are now On the battlefields of Syria
and Iraq, Islamic State may be in retreat, but support
for its ideology shows no Thousands of commuters are suffering
tonight as there are no trains It's the second successive
day of disruption. We can get the latest now
from Claudia-Liza Armah. Claudia-Lisa, I heard earlier this
evening that trains would be running Yes, that was the promise, wasn't
it, and I can say that some trains are now back up and running, but a
very limited service, far from being back to normal. The earlier issue,
the signal problem between Paddington and Slough, has been
fixed. As you can imagine, there's a huge backlog. Earlier I was here for
the evening programme and there were frantic, chaotic scenes. Hundreds of
passengers, many of them angry, demanding to know exactly why they
were experiencing a second day of major disruption. I spoke to a few
of them. Some of them were saying if they were lucky they were hoping to
get home around now. If I get home for 10pm then that will be a
victory. My season ticket costs me ?10,000 a year. My last to train
journeys this morning and last night were both delayed, by 40 minutes.
Now everything is cancelled. That's what I get for ten grand a year.
Relative to the amount of tax I pay the cost of the ticket, it's clearly
a very disappointing situation. The guy in the middle says it all
really, ten grand a year spent on a season ticket to face long delays
and cancellations. Let me bring you up-to-date on the situation tonight.
Heathrow express is running and back to normal. Trains are running every
30 minutes instead of the usual 15 minutes. The great Western Railway
train line is also up and running, very limited service though. Some
trains remain cancelled. The Heathrow connect service, no trains
running at the line. The advice to all passengers is to make sure you
check before you travel. Claudia-Liza Armah thank you.
In her first interview in office, the new leader of Kensington
and Chelsea Council has told BBC London that she doesn't think
the council "got it all wrong" after the Grenfell Tower fire -
but there will be a review of its actions.
Elizabeth Campbell also complimented the way the community
responded to the tragedy - although she accepted it
probably felt "disconnected" from the council.
She spoke to our political rditor, Tim Donovan.
It may prove a long, hard task to restore trust
and confidence in this community, but the new leader,
the new face of the council, says she's listening.
I think they do feel, some of them, that they have been
Others have said that we have always had great funding,
great education, sent loads of children to university.
Do you think there has been an unfair characterisation?
I think it's a deeply unfair characterisation and I don't think
I think it's a bit politically pathetic to start saying
that there are rich people who don't care.
While the main focus is forward, she accepts she also needs to look
review of what went wrong in the early days.
A lot of family and children's services, social workers,
were there from 5am onwards so they didn't get it
all wrong, but obviously we were tried and found wanting.
Were your civil emergency procedures up to date and robust?
I don't know, that's what I'm about to find out.
My instincts are that they probably weren't.
What was the taskforce announced yet going to amount to?
Is the task force going to be ten people?
They haven't given me any indication yet.
So it doesn't have much meaning as a task force.
She said housing was the priority and survivors needed much more time
to consider what was right for them, but the area would recover.
What you saw in the aftermath of the fire was an incredibly
strong community coming together, binding together.
At the moment, there's a disconnect between them and the council
and that is a chasm that we're going to have to bridge,
but the community is very, very strong, and I absolutely have

The world's first scan - which gives parents and doctors
a much clearer idea of how twins are developing in the womb -
has gone into service at St George's Hospital in Tooting.
Victoria Hollins explains how it's expected to make pregnancies safer.
It's good news for this expectant mum, but she had more
When we found that we had twins it was a big shock,
But thanks to a world first - a scan using twin growth charts -
she knows her baby boys are developing well.
Everything is going fine, the babies are growing beautifully.
Until now, twins in the womb were measured against charts
meant for single babies, so doctors were left
to their own judgment to estimate size and growth,
and that meant sometimes it was hard to work out if there was a problem.
That's because twins are often smaller than single babies,
The new charts will reduce what is currently
There is evidence that using using twin-specific charts
reduces the risks of stillbirths in pregnancy and we are hoping that
once we use this chart we will see a reduction in the number of early
delivery because of presumed growth problems in the twins.
The new charts are based on data from 10,000 scans.
Research was funded by existing parents of twins through the Twins
The charts at St George's Hospital in Tooting are a world first,
but they will be available for parents across the country.
A really warm day today. Let's see if it's going to last this week.
It was a scorcher of a day, London was the warmest place in the UK, a
number of places got to 32 Celsius. No rain for the gardens, it's going
to stay warm and muggy overnight, temperatures no lower than 17-18.
Tomorrow will be another warm day, not quite as much sunshine as today.
There will be some sunshine around. Through the afternoon it looks like
the cloud will thicken up, so a few sunny spells here and there, is that
of wall-to-wall, like today. 27 degrees, it will be present at
Wimbledon for the spectators and players. -- pleasant. This front
across the UK will introduce thicker cloud and showers to the region,
perhaps more to the north of the region. Through the afternoon they
should tempt disallowed. It will turn dry with some sunny spells. A
fairly warm day, 23-24. In the Sunday it looks like it might turn
warmer but on into Monday, increasing chance of showers.
warmer but on into Monday, increasing chance of showers. Here's
the National weather. Hello, we managed to cram in a lot
of weather today, 32 degrees at Heathrow, nothing like it away to
the north-west of Scotland, where it was as dull as that and wet at
times. It was absolutely glorious across some parts of southern
Britain, but there has to be a fly in the ointment and it came in the
form of some thunderstorms. A wise woman had the sense to take this
particular picture as these thunderstorms rolled across the
south-east and in the East Anglia and later this afternoon it was
North Yorkshire that really got a pounding in places, around the A64,
around Malton, I saw 35 millimetres and a couple of hours and virtually
as we speak, 10:45pm, it's the turn of Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire
the season quite violent thunderstorms. They will take time,
probably around midnight or one a four cars 1am before they get away
