Here on BBC One, it's time for the news where you are.

:00:00.:00:11.

A number of businesses, politicians and institutions have

:00:12.:00:16.

joined forces to send a strong message to the Government,

:00:17.:00:19.

calling upon it to protect London's interests during talks over Brexit.

:00:20.:00:24.

They argue London has specific needs and it must have access

:00:25.:00:28.

Our Brexit Reporter, Katharine Carpenter,

:00:29.:00:32.

has been to a business in east London which was today

:00:33.:00:35.

celebrating a very special honour bestowed on it -

:00:36.:00:38.

This family have been smoking salmon in London for over a century.

:00:39.:00:46.

It's now a cultural artefact, protected by European law.

:00:47.:00:54.

It's the same status that champagne has, and Parma ham.

:00:55.:00:58.

It really puts London up there with great foods.

:00:59.:01:02.

So our food can compete with Europe, but can our city

:01:03.:01:05.

32 officials have signed up to an open letter to the Government,

:01:06.:01:14.

asking it to bear in mind London's specific needs when it comes

:01:15.:01:18.

In particular, it wants to see a stable transition period

:01:19.:01:23.

with access to the single market, so businesses can plan.

:01:24.:01:26.

It wants to see a liberal migration policy so there

:01:27.:01:29.

And a deal which will mean it is easy to trade goods

:01:30.:01:34.

I don't think this letter will dramatically change the course

:01:35.:01:39.

of Brexit overnight, no, of course not.

:01:40.:01:41.

But it is just one walkway to keep...

:01:42.:01:46.

To keep the conversation going, to make the voice

:01:47.:01:48.

He says there has been a drop of European students signing up

:01:49.:01:53.

If we don't have a trade deal, many businesses in London will not

:01:54.:02:04.

Accountants won't have their qualifications recognised. Airlines

:02:05.:02:15.

won't be able to travel between the countries.

:02:16.:02:16.

Intellectual property rights may not be recognised in film and TV.

:02:17.:02:18.

Many vital services may not be able to trade if we do not have a good

:02:19.:02:22.

trade deal in place, a good transition.

:02:23.:02:24.

Back in the smokehouse, the Environment Secretary

:02:25.:02:25.

was sampling the fish, while the ambition to get a good

:02:26.:02:28.

He said that Brexit will afford opportunities.

:02:29.:02:37.

I think the object is to resell ourselves and to rebrand

:02:38.:02:41.

There is an irony that you're celebrating an honour given

:02:42.:02:49.

by the European Union, a body you campaigned to leave?

:02:50.:02:55.

And we have been in business since well before the EU came

:02:56.:03:01.

into being, and we were unaware that was going to happen.

:03:02.:03:07.

If Britain had its own award scheme, we would have done that.

:03:08.:03:11.

He doesn't know if he will keep his protected status after Brexit.

:03:12.:03:14.

Like everything else in this process, that has

:03:15.:03:18.

Our reporter Louisa Preston is with me.

:03:19.:03:24.

Calls for the Mayor of London to be allowed to be more involved

:03:25.:03:27.

That's right. We know many prominent figures in London are extremely

:03:28.:03:38.

concerned about the city in these negotiations. They are very

:03:39.:03:43.

concerned about businesses. It could be very damaging, with up to 70,000

:03:44.:03:46.

jobs going just in the financial sector. A report today specifically

:03:47.:03:53.

says that the mayor, Sadiq Khan, should have a prominent input in the

:03:54.:03:56.

negotiations, and he definitely wants a foot under the table. He's

:03:57.:04:02.

said that. But the EU Brexit cheap, Michel Barnier, says he'll only

:04:03.:04:09.

negotiate with the UK Government. But today Jeremy Corbyn met Michel

:04:10.:04:13.

Barnier, giving him an Arsenal shirt today with his name on it. We are

:04:14.:04:17.

told that went down well. And he met the Scottish and Welsh first

:04:18.:04:22.

ministers. But with EU nations relying heavily on the City of

:04:23.:04:25.

London for their financial needs, and Michel Barnier saying in the

:04:26.:04:32.

past, it would seem likely that Sadiq Khan will have some say at

:04:33.:04:33.

some stage. Thank you. A parliamentary vote on plans

:04:34.:04:35.

to expand Heathrow Airport has been delayed further,

:04:36.:04:38.

until at least next year. In a statement, Transport

:04:39.:04:41.

Secretary Chris Grayling said June's general election

:04:42.:04:43.

had led to the postponement. A Commons vote is expected

:04:44.:04:46.

to take place next year. The Queen has opened

the Metropolitan Police's New Scotland Yard is now based

:05:02.:05:04.

a 12-month amnesty for illegal immigrants who'd been living

:05:05.:05:11.

inside the Grenfell Tower Investigators believe 350

:05:12.:05:14.

people were officially living there at the time,

:05:15.:05:20.

but it's not known how many more people may have been staying

:05:21.:05:24.

in the block when the fire started. We may never know how many illegal

:05:25.:05:28.

immigrants lived in Grenfell Tower, She agreed to speak

:05:29.:05:31.

to us on the condition What support have you received

:05:32.:05:38.

since the night of the fire? I'm not paying the rent and I'm not

:05:39.:05:43.

supposed to be in the tower. Investigators believe

:05:44.:05:56.

that around 350 people were living inside the tower,

:05:57.:05:59.

but residents like Rhea were not registered,

:06:00.:06:02.

and it's not known how many other people were in the same situation

:06:03.:06:04.

and whether they are among those Last week, the Home Office granted

:06:05.:06:07.

a 12-month deportation amnesty But with a young son

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

Rhodri Philipps, forced to answer for his threatening

abuse on Facebook. Well, justice will be

and anything that I've done wrong... He targeted Gina Miller,

:08:27.:08:33.

who took the Government to court over Brexit,

:08:34.:08:45.

writing: At first, I sort of read it

:08:46.:09:01.

and re-read it, because it seemed so barbaric, but that was the first

:09:02.:09:04.

time that I felt truly threatened. Lord St Davids was given the chance

:09:05.:09:08.

to speak to the court in person and, in a passionate speech,

:09:09.:09:12.

he said he realised that his comments were very unkind,

:09:13.:09:15.

unnecessary, self-indulgent expletives of anger

:09:16.:09:19.

which he could not contain. He'd claimed he was motivated by his

:09:20.:09:22.

family motto, love of country. The district judge, Emma Arbuthnot,

said it was actually hatred of anyone who disagreed

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

:09:46.:10:12.

today, and that was despite quite a bit of cloud across the capital and

:10:13.:10:16.

surrounding area. This was sent in late in the day, a lovely end to the

:10:17.:10:22.

day. It doesn't have to be sunny, does it? It doesn't look as though

:10:23.:10:25.

it will be quite as cool as last night, certainly comfortable. Just

:10:26.:10:30.

the outside chance of a light, drizzly shower in the north of the

:10:31.:10:33.

region tomorrow morning, but otherwise it looks a decent today.

:10:34.:10:39.

Despite starting on the cool side, the sun comes out and the afternoon

:10:40.:10:44.

looks fine for the men's semifinals. 22, 20 three Celsius, strong

:10:45.:10:49.

sunshine. Friday night and into Saturday, more chance of picking up

:10:50.:10:52.

the odd drizzly shower. A week weather front drapes itself to the

:10:53.:10:57.

north of us, but still lots of dry and bright weather. The outlook, it
