Calls for the Mayor of London to be allowed to be more involved
That's right. We know many prominent figures in London are extremely
concerned about the city in these negotiations. They are very
concerned about businesses. It could be very damaging, with up to 70,000
jobs going just in the financial sector. A report today specifically
says that the mayor, Sadiq Khan, should have a prominent input in the
negotiations, and he definitely wants a foot under the table. He's
said that. But the EU Brexit cheap, Michel Barnier, says he'll only
negotiate with the UK Government. But today Jeremy Corbyn met Michel
Barnier, giving him an Arsenal shirt today with his name on it. We are
told that went down well. And he met the Scottish and Welsh first
ministers. But with EU nations relying heavily on the City of
London for their financial needs, and Michel Barnier saying in the
past, it would seem likely that Sadiq Khan will have some say at
some stage. Thank you. A parliamentary vote on plans
to expand Heathrow Airport has been delayed further,
until at least next year. In a statement, Transport
Secretary Chris Grayling said June's general election
had led to the postponement. A Commons vote is expected
to take place next year. The Queen has opened

a 12-month amnesty for illegal immigrants who'd been living
inside the Grenfell Tower Investigators believe 350
people were officially living there at the time,
but it's not known how many more people may have been staying
in the block when the fire started. We may never know how many illegal
immigrants lived in Grenfell Tower, She agreed to speak
to us on the condition What support have you received
since the night of the fire? I'm not paying the rent and I'm not
supposed to be in the tower. Investigators believe
that around 350 people were living inside the tower,
but residents like Rhea were not registered,
and it's not known how many other people were in the same situation
and whether they are among those Last week, the Home Office granted
a 12-month deportation amnesty But with a young son
in the UK and a family to support in the Philippines,
she still has fears Her friend and her daughter

discharged from hospital. But the ordeal has
deeply affected Rhea. How have you coped with the trauma
of surviving something as horrific That was an illegal immigrant
speaking to our reporter. An aristocrat has been sentenced
to 12 weeks in prison after being found guilty of making
menacing communications towards the businesswoman and
anti-Brexit campaigner Gina Miller. Rhodri Philipps - the 4th
Viscount St Davids - wrote a post on Facebook offering
?5,000 to anyone who ran her over. The 4th Viscount St Davids,
Rhodri Philipps, forced to answer for his threatening
abuse on Facebook. Well, justice will be
served, without question. I have belief in the British courts,
and anything that I've done wrong... He targeted Gina Miller,
who took the Government to court over Brexit,
writing: At first, I sort of read it
and re-read it, because it seemed so barbaric, but that was the first
time that I felt truly threatened. Lord St Davids was given the chance
to speak to the court in person and, in a passionate speech,
he said he realised that his comments were very unkind,
unnecessary, self-indulgent expletives of anger
which he could not contain. He'd claimed he was motivated by his
family motto, love of country. The district judge, Emma Arbuthnot,
said it was actually hatred of anyone who disagreed
with his views and of those Privileged, entitled

find out what the weather's up It's not too bad, is it? 23 degrees

surrounding area. This was sent in late in the day, a lovely end to the
day. It doesn't have to be sunny, does it? It doesn't look as though
it will be quite as cool as last night, certainly comfortable. Just
the outside chance of a light, drizzly shower in the north of the
region tomorrow morning, but otherwise it looks a decent today.
Despite starting on the cool side, the sun comes out and the afternoon
looks fine for the men's semifinals. 22, 20 three Celsius, strong
sunshine. Friday night and into Saturday, more chance of picking up
the odd drizzly shower. A week weather front drapes itself to the
north of us, but still lots of dry and bright weather. The outlook, it
has been very hot in Spain, as and bright weather. The outlook, it
