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

:00:00.:00:10.

Welcome to BBC London News, with me, Alice Bhandhukravi.

:00:11.:00:12.

Air passengers were most likely to have been delayed

:00:13.:00:15.

if they flew from Gatwick Airport or with easyJet.

:00:16.:00:19.

Data from the Civil Aviation Authority for the last two summers

:00:20.:00:22.

shows that among the ten biggest airlines, easyJet travellers

:00:23.:00:26.

suffered an average delay of 24 minutes.

:00:27.:00:29.

Gatwick and easyJet say many of the delays

:00:30.:00:32.

were beyond their control, as Emma Simpson reports.

:00:33.:00:37.

Up, up and away, but how often do they take off on time?

:00:38.:00:42.

The BBC has been looking at the data.

:00:43.:00:47.

Gatwick Airport had the longest delays,

:00:48.:00:49.

The summer season can be a pinch point.

:00:50.:00:56.

Gatwick has the single busiest runway in the world,

:00:57.:01:00.

with planes often taking off and landing every minute.

:01:01.:01:04.

Things are going smoothly here today, but if their schedule slips

:01:05.:01:08.

We absolutely recognise the inconvenience caused

:01:09.:01:16.

But most of our flights are ready to go, but simply cannot depart.

:01:17.:01:20.

We are up against the challenge of congested airspace over our head,

:01:21.:01:23.

bad weather across the European region, and European

:01:24.:01:26.

We fly to Europe more than anyone else and as a result we are

:01:27.:01:31.

As for the airlines, easyJet had the longest delays

:01:32.:01:35.

It said having the biggest number of flights was a factor.

:01:36.:01:41.

The shortest delays were at Aer Lingus, with 12 minutes.

:01:42.:01:48.

Airports like Gatwick need to think about building

:01:49.:01:50.

I think airlines like easyJet should have perhaps more resources

:01:51.:01:56.

for the schedule they are hoping to deliver, but ultimately it's us

:01:57.:02:01.

passengers say we want loads of cheap flights, please.

:02:02.:02:04.

The government reckons 30 minute delays could be the norm,

:02:05.:02:10.

unless the airspace above London and Europe is redesigned

:02:11.:02:14.

Emma Simpson reporting from Gatwick Airport.

:02:15.:02:22.

An investigation is under way after a fire on a tube

:02:23.:02:25.

Smoke filled this carriage on a Bakerloo line train.

:02:26.:02:29.

Four people were treated at the scene

:02:30.:02:30.

Transport for London says it was caused by an electrical fault

:02:31.:02:37.

Police looking for a moped robber who knocked a woman to the ground

:02:38.:02:44.

in Lewisham have released video footage of the attack.

:02:45.:02:47.

The victim was standing outside a temple on Clarendon Road

:02:48.:02:50.

He then stole a gold necklace she was wearing, before riding

:02:51.:02:55.

A teenager from Surrey, who's accused of preparing

:02:56.:03:02.

a terror attack in the UK, is to face trial in January.

Haider Ahmed, who's 18 and from Redhill,

:03:07.:03:08.

is also charged with three counts of disseminating

:03:09.:03:11.

Footage has emerged of the moment a double-decker bus ran into a shop

:03:12.:03:19.

These pictures were captured by CCTV cameras inside the kitchen showroom

:03:20.:03:23.

the bus crashed into during the rush hour.

:03:24.:03:25.

Two passengers were rescued by firefighters from the upper deck.

:03:26.:03:35.

The driver was taken to hospital and several passengers were treated for

:03:36.:03:39.

minor injuries. They're one of the most successful

that comes at too high a price. That's it for now from me, but let's

:06:10.:06:16.

find out what the weather's After the week of weather we've had,

:06:17.:06:32.

don't we deserve a mainly fine weekend? Well, that's exactly what

:06:33.:06:35.

we're going to get. Today was a decent day. There was some sunshine

:06:36.:06:39.

around. For the weekend it will be largely dry with some spells of

:06:40.:06:42.

sunshine. At the moment there's a lot of cloud around and some

:06:43.:06:45.

outbreaks of rain. The rain light and patchy for the most part. It

:06:46.:06:49.

will turn misty and murky for some of the hills to the south and west.

:06:50.:06:55.

Temperatures dropping to 15-16. A bit of a slow start to Saturday.

:06:56.:06:57.

Grey skies and sunspot soft drizzle if you are out and about early on.

:06:58.:07:04.

The cloud should break up a bit we will see spells of sunshine.

:07:05.:07:06.

12-macro showers can't be ruled out but you will be lucky to catch one.

:07:07.:07:12.

The majority will stay dry. 21-22d will not feel too bad, if you get

yourself into brightness. It will stay fine on Saturday night and

:07:17.:07:20.

Sunday is looking like a decent day. Some spells of sunshine, and after a

:07:21.:07:25.

fairly cool start, temperatures up to 22 degrees. I'll leave you with

to the the outlook for the next few days. A

:07:31.:07:32.

decent weekend, more unsubtle than to the start of next week. Now Helen

:07:33.:07:38.

Willetts with the National forecast. Good evening. Despite the unsettled

:07:39.:07:43.

and often quite wet weather for some of us this week it looks like we

:07:44.:07:46.

have a window of fairly decent weather and it coincides with the

:07:47.:07:49.

weekend, but it's not plain sailing. We have this amalgamation of weather

:07:50.:07:52.

fronts across the country, so it means there's a lot of cloud, if you

:07:53.:07:56.

are hoping to view the meteor shower tonight, but it looks clearer

:07:57.:07:59.

tomorrow night. Best tonight in the north and west but even here there

:08:00.:08:04.

will be showers around on this weather front here, with splashes
