The view of a civil liberties charity over the Met's plan to use

:00:23.:00:25.

face recognition technology to find suspected criminals during this

:00:26.:00:27.

450 arrests were made during the carnival last year

:00:28.:00:32.

and City Hall has said it must be made safer.

:00:33.:00:34.

Campaigners have now written to the police,

:00:35.:00:36.

calling for the intelligence trial to be abandoned during the event.

recognition technology to try top hunt down known criminals. The

:01:05.:01:09.

technology involves using overt cameras to scan the faces of people

:01:10.:01:14.

at carnivals, any matches which includes images of people wanted by

:01:15.:01:20.

police will be flagged up. Officers can speak to individuals to confirm

:01:21.:01:24.

their identity and potentially make arrests. In the UK we have policing

:01:25.:01:28.

by consent but there is no public consent to the use of this

:01:52.:02:07.

One security expert told BBC London, the public needn't be alarmed.

:02:08.:02:15.

People's data is being captured everywhere, when they walk about the

:02:16.:02:18.

shops, public areas, hotels, bars, so they are already being recorded.

:02:19.:02:25.

The only difference here is that the police are looking at the faces

:02:26.:02:34.

captured and it's being run through a soft algorithim, which only makes

:02:35.:02:41.

the crowd safer. Those I spoke were split I understand why they want to

:02:42.:02:47.

do it but it'll make everyone feel uncomfortable. I think it is a good

:02:48.:02:53.

idea. If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to worry about I

:02:54.:02:59.

don't think it is really needed, to be honest. What do you think they

:03:00.:03:04.

should be doing instead? Managing the community better. No arrests

:03:05.:03:07.

were made using the technology last year. Police say once the trial is

:03:08.:03:12.

complete there will be a public consultation. For campaigners,

:03:13.:03:15.

though, it is a gross violation of Carnival-goers privacy.

:03:16.:03:15.

A South London hospital trust has apologised

:03:16.:03:17.

after inspectors issued a damning report into its patient care -

:03:18.:03:19.

The hospital watchdog found that staff working at Greenwich

:03:20.:03:26.

and Lewisham NHS Trust weren't meeting basic cleanliness

:03:27.:03:30.

standards, with some staff not washing their hands before

:03:31.:03:32.

treatments and patients with infectious diseases

:03:33.:03:33.

Our political correspondent Karl Mercer has this report.

:03:34.:03:42.

Florence is one of the first patients to try out this new unit

:03:43.:03:46.

at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Woolwich.

:03:47.:03:47.

And bosses here hope it will be part of the answer to turning

:03:48.:03:54.

It's had three inspections from the health watchdog

:03:55.:03:58.

The general culture, you know, the way staff

:03:59.:04:03.

are talking to patients, is not what we'd expect to see.

:04:04.:04:05.

We pulled the trust up on it certainly last year,

:04:06.:04:08.

when we inspected medical services in the emergency department.

:04:09.:04:10.

And it's disappointing we're still seeing those failings happening.

:04:11.:04:13.

Staff had not washed their hands between patients.

:04:14.:04:19.

Doctors were seen taking outdoor bags into anaesthetic

:04:20.:04:21.

Some TB patients weren't properly isolated from other patients.

:04:22.:04:27.

And there was dirty and poor standard equipment.

:04:28.:04:30.

No, it doesn't make happy reading, and we want to apologise

:04:31.:04:33.

to all those patients who actually haven't got the level of care

:04:34.:04:35.

And all those many individual patients who have had that

:04:36.:04:41.

The hospital, like others, has had trouble moving people out

:04:42.:04:47.

into the community and at the same time, has seen more people coming

:04:48.:04:50.

The staff work very, very hard under very

:04:51.:04:54.

There is evidence of extreme pressure, increased numbers

:04:55.:04:58.

of patients that we're seeing in the hospitals.

:04:59.:05:02.

And that does create their own pressures.

:05:03.:05:06.

We've had problems as well with discharging patients

:05:07.:05:08.

out of the hospital, which obviously then gives

:05:09.:05:10.

But you're right, we have to get those basics right.

:05:11.:05:16.

The fact they haven't been getting those basics right meant

:05:17.:05:19.

that the Care Quality Commission considered putting them

:05:20.:05:21.

I think the whole health system are watching Lewisham

:05:22.:05:24.

and Greenwich very closely, it certainly has a history.

:05:25.:05:30.

The ratings are such that actually, as a trust that requires improvement

:05:31.:05:34.

with some inadequate services, we certainly had discussions

:05:35.:05:35.

about special measures, but considered they weren't

:05:36.:05:37.

As I say, we will keep them under close observation.

:05:38.:05:45.

The CQC will be back for unannounced inspections soon.

:05:46.:05:49.

The trust says it hopes it has turned a corner and will soon be

:05:50.:05:53.

delivery better care for its patients.

:05:54.:06:02.

Jim joins us in the studio, and Lewisham isn't alone in getting

:06:03.:06:05.

No it certainly isn't. Let's look at the numbers. The CQC looked at 18

:06:06.:06:15.

trusts across London. Six of those were rated as "good." Just

:06:16.:06:21.

one-third. Ten were marked down as "requiring improvement", like

:06:22.:06:23.

Greenwich and Lewisham which we heard about in Karl's package and

:06:24.:06:30.

finally, two, were classed as "inadequate" in other words, put in

:06:31.:06:34.

special measures. They are Bart's trust, one of the biggest in London

:06:35.:06:39.

and St George's in Tooting. It seems a lot of these problems come up time

:06:40.:06:44.

and time again That's right. Look at the reports and there are themes,

:06:45.:06:50.

financial constraints, basically not enough money. Growing demand, more

:06:51.:06:53.

people coming through the front door and then the other end of the

:06:54.:06:58.

problem is - people not being able to get home. This age-old problem of

:06:59.:07:02.

bedblocking. And another thing that is constantly repeated is vacancies,

:07:03.:07:04.

staff vacancies and executives for NHS Trusts, they point to these

:07:05.:07:08.

things and say - these are structural problems it is not just

:07:09.:07:13.

down to mismanagement in individual trusts. Thank you.

:07:14.:07:14.

The wait for students - and their parents -

:07:15.:07:16.

While many will now be making the move to university,

:07:17.:07:20.

there's concern that students are overlooking another

:07:21.:07:22.

It comes at the same time as demand for the young trainees has rocketed.

:07:23.:07:28.

Our Education reporter Marc Ashdown has more.

:07:29.:07:31.

The nervous faces, the shuffle through, and finally,

:07:32.:07:33.

Attention now turns to their next step.

:07:34.:07:50.

The Government wants more young people to swap university

:07:51.:07:52.

The trouble is, in London, that's not going so well.

:07:53.:08:02.

Other parts of the country have seen the numbers double, the capital

:08:03.:08:05.

It's harder to attract high performing students to ditch

:08:06.:08:11.

I got four As and I'm going to Oxford University

:08:12.:08:14.

But demand for apprentices is growing, especially

:08:15.:08:26.

At this cyber lab they are training in online security.

:08:27.:08:37.

The red team are trying to hack in, while the blues are defending.

:08:38.:08:40.

For these four apprentices, the upside are clear.

:08:41.:08:48.

The top thing is earning a salary, a really good salary.

:08:49.:08:51.

All my friends are huge amount of debt and I have none.

:08:52.:08:55.

I managed to buy a house when I was 20 years old,

:08:56.:08:58.

I beat my friends who went to university.

:08:59.:09:03.

I can work there and see where my work is being tailored to.

:09:04.:09:06.

I am definitely working and learning.

:09:07.:09:10.

I dropped out of university after two years.

:09:11.:09:12.

It was one of the best choices I made.

:09:13.:09:15.

I am earning, I am learning and I don't have any debt.

:09:16.:09:30.

I think will see a lot more in the next three

:09:31.:09:36.

the apprenticeship programme fits London's economy much better.

:09:37.:09:38.

It just takes a bit of time for it to catch up.

:09:39.:09:51.

These parents wanted their children to go down the traditional route.

:09:52.:09:54.

He has broken out of the mould, but I'm glad that he has succeeded.

:09:55.:09:59.

I realise that now, he has the responsibility,

:10:00.:10:01.

he is not a boy any more, here's a man.

:10:02.:10:03.

For these students, it has been a long and winding

:10:04.:10:07.

That's it for now from me, but let's find out what the weather's

:10:08.:10:12.

Thank you very much. A warm and humid day. Top temperatures 25. A

:10:13.:10:21.

fine evening and night, largely dry and warm. Temperatures is a or 16.

:10:22.:10:25.

Tomorrow looking pretty good. Sunny spells, a few showers around. A

:10:26.:10:29.

different feel to the air. We have lost the humidity. Although it will

:10:30.:10:37.

be sunny there could be the odd shower through the afternoon

:10:38.:10:40.

passing. Temperatures-buys. 21 or 22. You will notice the difference.

:10:41.:10:44.

It will be breezy as well. Now this area of low pressure

:10:45.:10:48.

hurtling towards us in the Atlantic, will contain the recommend nabs of

:10:49.:10:52.

what was hurricane Gert will bring rain to our shores on Monday. For

:10:53.:10:59.

Saturday, looking dry, sunshine around, temperatures 22. A fine

:11:00.:11:01.

start to the around, temperatures 22. A fine

:11:02.:11:05.

start to the weekend. Maybe some rain on Sunday, some shooun and
