the President achieved six months on? Join me now on BBC Two.

:00:00.:00:12.

BBC London has been shown footage of one of the London Bridge

:00:13.:00:17.

attackers, Khuram Butt, who, with his accomplices,

:00:18.:00:20.

killed eight people last month near Borough Market.

:00:21.:00:24.

The pictures show Butt arguing with another man

:00:25.:00:26.

The man he was arguing with, who gave BBC London the footage,

:00:27.:00:32.

He claims Butt told him he should be killed for leaving the faith.

:00:33.:00:38.

not telling the police about what happened.

:00:39.:00:42.

Gareth Furby has this exclusive reports.

:00:43.:00:47.

This is the ringleader of the London Bridge terror attack,

:00:48.:00:51.

Khuram Butt, wearing a Superman sweatshirt and arguing with other

:00:52.:00:55.

people at Hyde Park Corner just months before he organised

:00:56.:00:58.

We know it's him because it has been confirmed to us today by a relative.

:00:59.:01:07.

And compare his face pictured at Hyde Park with the image

:01:08.:01:10.

issued after the London Bridge attack in June.

:01:11.:01:16.

Butt is seen smiling, but just moments before

:01:17.:01:18.

the mobile-phone camera had been turned on to capture him arguing,

:01:19.:01:22.

he told a former Muslim he should be killed for leaving the religion.

:01:23.:01:27.

The man that was threatened is called Aftal.

:01:28.:01:31.

He comes from north-west London and has asked us

:01:32.:01:33.

to withhold his identity, so we've used a producer

:01:34.:01:36.

Were also going to show you some of the things Khuram Butt said at the

:01:37.:01:46.

time. He came up and said I want

:01:47.:01:48.

to have a discussion. He turned suddenly and got personal

:01:49.:01:50.

and started threatening that He was just threatening and very

:01:51.:01:53.

aggressive but when the people started to come, he just got

:01:54.:01:57.

a bit calmer. He said, "If you don't obey my

:01:58.:02:02.

religion, you should be killed." I knew it, you know,

:02:03.:02:07.

this guy was going to do I just regret, why didn't

:02:08.:02:10.

I inform this to the police? Because if I did, I could

:02:11.:02:21.

have saved many lives. Maybe the police

:02:22.:02:23.

would have listened. This mobile-phone footage,

:02:24.:02:25.

filmed we were told, last August, was given to us at the weekend

:02:26.:02:29.

after we visited a London address It's the headquarters of a group

:02:30.:02:32.

who called themselves the They claim a growing membership

:02:33.:02:39.

and say in London some people Sadia Hamid says she left

:02:40.:02:44.

the religion when she was 19. Because of the inequality

:02:45.:02:51.

between men and women. Now she claims people

:02:52.:02:55.

who work here faced threats. Threats of being shot,

:02:56.:02:58.

threats of being bombed. Another ex-Muslim says

:02:59.:03:03.

he's been threatened in London The threats, I went on a bus,

:03:04.:03:07.

for example, one day, and two people recognised me,

:03:08.:03:12.

and they said, This weekend, the group organised

:03:13.:03:14.

a conference at a London address that wasn't revealed

:03:15.:03:18.

to anyone except those involved, We can fight for the right to leave

:03:19.:03:22.

and criticise religion, and especially Islam,

:03:23.:03:28.

without fear, without threats, A leading London imam says no true

:03:29.:03:33.

Muslim would threaten anyone Islam does not promote

:03:34.:03:38.

hatred, homophobia or Islam promotes equality,

:03:39.:03:46.

dignity and honour of all people. But some ex-Muslims disagree,

:03:47.:03:50.

and it was at this conference that Aftal gave us this mobile-phone

:03:51.:03:53.

footage of his encounter with the leader of the London Bridge

:03:54.:03:56.

attack, Khuram Butt. I felt really bad

:03:57.:04:04.

when the attacks happened. I could have reported him

:04:05.:04:06.

to the police. And tonight the Met Police said

:04:07.:04:08.

that they'd encourage the public So you've probably heard the news

:04:09.:04:11.

that new diesel and petrol cars But what kind of an impact

:04:12.:04:23.

will that have in London? but can the city cope with having

:04:24.:04:27.

to charge all those batteries? This new superfast charger

:04:28.:04:31.

for electric cars It cuts charging time

:04:32.:04:38.

from 3-4 hours to half an hour. 100 more are planned in the borough,

:04:39.:04:45.

but we're going to need a lot more like this if the whole of London

:04:46.:04:48.

is going to be driving According to TfL,

:04:49.:04:51.

there are already 1600 electric cars here in the capital,

:04:52.:04:57.

and around 8000 charging points. But right now there are 2.6 million

:04:58.:05:02.

cars on our roads, so what's the priority in preparing

:05:03.:05:06.

for that many electric cars? I think it's just a question

:05:07.:05:10.

of getting charging points in place. If you're installing

:05:11.:05:15.

charging points from scratch, it's a tricky process with planning

:05:16.:05:18.

applications and all that stuff, but if you're just installing

:05:19.:05:20.

a socket on the side of a lamp post, But many in the capital say

:05:21.:05:24.

the focus on electric cars and a date 23 years away is a red

:05:25.:05:30.

herring and that today's cleaner strategy from the Government

:05:31.:05:35.

won't help our immediate The Environment Secretary has

:05:36.:05:37.

pledged ?225 million for local authorities to tackle their worst

roads, but City Hall has repeated its claim for a diesel scrappage

:05:44.:05:47.

scheme in the capital, We think targeting, you know,

:05:48.:05:50.

a couple of roads here and there If you look around London,

:05:51.:05:59.

we have multiple roads breaching the pollution limits,

:06:00.:06:02.

so you need an area approach and the funding to be

:06:03.:06:05.

able to tackle that. Finding a solution and fast

:06:06.:06:07.

is pressing. Air pollution contributes

:06:08.:06:09.

to 9000 premature deaths A businessman from north London

:06:10.:06:11.

has been found guilty of being part of a conspiracy to pass off

:06:12.:06:23.

horsemeat as beef. Inner London Crown Court

:06:24.:06:28.

heard how Andronicos Sideras, one of the owners of Dinos Sons

:06:29.:06:30.

in Tottenham, mixed the meats Two other men had already pleaded

:06:31.:06:34.

guilty to their part in the plot. Rail passengers are being warned

:06:35.:06:40.

they could have to wait up to 45 minutes at rush hour while major

:06:41.:06:43.

improvement work is carried out Around half of it will close

:06:44.:06:46.

for most of August, which wll also have an impact on Clapham Junction,

:06:47.:06:53.

Vauxhall, Wimbledon, and other stations used

:06:54.:06:55.

by South West Trains. More than one in ten women

:06:56.:07:04.

who die within a year Yet the mental health of pregnant

:07:05.:07:06.

women and new mothers is something which isn't often talked about,

:07:07.:07:11.

which is why a hospital in Paddington is trying

:07:12.:07:14.

to change things. When Pippa fell pregnant, she says

:07:15.:07:17.

she shouldn't have been happier. Her daughter was wanted,

:07:18.:07:29.

she was in a happy, stable relationship,

:07:30.:07:35.

so she couldn't understand I always thought being depressed

:07:36.:07:36.

was being sad and tired, and I was really angry and did have

:07:37.:07:40.

thoughts of not wanting to be here, not because I didn't want

:07:41.:07:43.

to be here and be alive, just because I didn't feel like

:07:44.:07:46.

I could cope with all of it. There was one moment

:07:47.:07:49.

when I came driving home, and I wondered what it would

:07:50.:07:51.

be like if I crashed my car. While postnatal depression

:07:52.:07:54.

is widely recognised, having mental-health problems

:07:55.:07:56.

when you are pregnant One in five women

:07:57.:08:02.

in the UK who have a baby It is the most common side effect

:08:03.:08:06.

of pregnancy and it is dangerous. One in seven women who die

:08:07.:08:10.

in the first year of their baby's life will have killed themselves,

:08:11.:08:14.

so why does no-one talk about it? It makes you feel like you're

:08:15.:08:17.

failing, it makes you feel like you're not being the mother

:08:18.:08:20.

that your child deserves. And telling someone

:08:21.:08:25.

that, that is hard. This woman leads a team

:08:26.:08:34.

at St Mary's Hospital who treat pregnant women and new mothers

:08:35.:08:37.

who have mental-health problems. I'm finding it hard to get out

of bed in the morning. A ?3 million grant means

the centre can offer help Abuse victims, new mums who can't

:08:45.:08:46.

bond with their baby. Society doesn't give women

:08:47.:08:52.

permission to become unwell or to be honest

:08:53.:09:02.

about how unwell they can feel. Many women have fear of childbirth,

:09:03.:09:05.

or they might feel very strange with their babies and these feelings

:09:06.:09:08.

are very difficult to disclose. Are they normal?

:09:09.:09:15.

They are absolutely normal. 11 weeks old and baby

:09:16.:09:19.

early to secure a happy future. Finally, cars parked in private

:09:22.:09:28.

driveways on a road in Gants Hill have been regularly getting fines

:09:29.:09:31.

because the ends of their cars Residents are furious,

:09:32.:09:36.

saying there's nothing they can do about it,

:09:37.:09:41.

as the driveways were constructed as early as the 1920s

:09:42.:09:44.

when cars were smaller. Redbridge Council says

:09:45.:09:48.

they'll work with residents to Ben has the weather for us,

:09:49.:09:50.

and quite wet at times today, Ben. It certainly was, some outbreaks of

:09:51.:10:09.

rain in places, but that was not the whole story. Things started pretty

:10:10.:10:14.

bright for the Weather Watchers, but things clouded over, and cloud

:10:15.:10:18.

brought outbreaks of rain, and tomorrow will see heavy showers and

:10:19.:10:24.

some sunshine, particularly during the afternoon. It is fine at the

:10:25.:10:28.

moment, and it stays dry through tonight, although more in the way of

:10:29.:10:32.

cloud creeping in from the west later in the night, 12-14d. Tomorrow

:10:33.:10:38.

gets off to a largely dry start, if a cloudy one. The cloud will be

:10:39.:10:42.

thin, I suspect it will be bright but not desperately sunny. Into the

:10:43.:10:47.

afternoon, the sun will break through, more brightness, but the

:10:48.:10:50.

showers will turn quite heavy, and there could be thundered mixed in as

:10:51.:10:54.

well, highs of 18-21, quite a blustery wind. On Friday, rain from

the west, then sunshine and showers at the weekend. If you are heading

If it is staycation for you at the moment, there is an unwelcome guest

at Hotel UK, the jet stream to the south of the UK, quite important,

:11:22.:11:26.

because it is bringing weather systems, and it forms on the

boundary between warm air to the south and cooler to the north, and

:11:30.:11:32.

we are on the wrong side of the jet stream at the moment, we have got

cooler and low pressure in charge. It will be with us through the week

and a weekend, and this weather front has cleared, but we have some
