Londoners have been paying tribute to the victims

:00:11.:00:19.

The mayor, Sadiq Khan, has sent a message of solidarity

:00:20.:00:23.

and there have been messages of condolence from traders

:00:24.:00:27.

at Borough Market, some of whom were caught up in a very

:00:28.:00:31.

City Hall, London, stands united with Spain.

:00:32.:00:43.

The images are a stark reminder - panicked faces, armed police.

:00:44.:00:45.

As yesterday's horrific attack played out, the Orfeo Catala choir

:00:46.:00:55.

was performing here at Southwark Cathedral.

:00:56.:00:59.

Founded in 1891, it is a Catalan institution.

:01:00.:01:06.

Today, as news continues to filter in of the full extent of the attack,

:01:07.:01:10.

the choir are trying to come to terms with what's

:01:11.:01:14.

There where people in the choir that were telling me yesterday,

:01:15.:01:19.

when we came, we said, it is peculiar that we still

:01:20.:01:23.

haven't had any terrorist attacks in Barcelona.

:01:24.:01:27.

I knew that it would happen because I work near Sagrada Familia

:01:28.:01:33.

and there were always Mossos d'Esquadra, which is

:01:34.:01:36.

Of course, the terrorist attacks in Spain are remarkably

:01:37.:01:43.

similar to what happened here at London Bridge in June.

:01:44.:01:46.

Three terrorists drove a van at pedestrians

:01:47.:01:48.

and then ran through here, stabbing people randomly.

:01:49.:01:51.

Eight people were killed and around 50 were injured.

:01:52.:01:55.

For many in Borough Market, the emotions of that

:01:56.:01:57.

Staff at this Spanish shop knew some of those who were killed

:01:58.:02:02.

in the attack and today face an anxious wait for news of friends

:02:03.:02:06.

Luckily, it looks like none of our close colleagues or friends

:02:07.:02:11.

Obviously, coming so soon after the London terror attacks,

:02:12.:02:17.

The images from the London Bridge attack are still so vivid.

:02:18.:02:24.

Now, our European neighbours are coming to terms

:02:25.:02:28.

Michael Barrymore has won his legal battle with Essex Police.

:02:29.:02:33.

A judge has decided he is entitled to compensation, which could run

:02:34.:02:39.

The TV personality claims his career was ruined, when officers

:02:40.:02:44.

arrested him on suspicion of rape and murder.

:02:45.:02:46.

The trouble is, this lot over here are laughing three seconds

:02:47.:02:53.

Michael Barrymore, at the height of his fame.

:02:54.:02:57.

But in 2001, the body of 31-year-old Stuart Lubbock was found

:02:58.:03:02.

in the swimming pool following a drug fuelled party

:03:03.:03:04.

at the entertainer's former home at Roydon, near Harlow.

:03:05.:03:06.

Tests showed he had suffered severe internal injuries,

:03:07.:03:10.

It was six years later that Mr Barrymore was arrested,

:03:11.:03:16.

only for the case against him to be dropped three months later.

:03:17.:03:20.

I was really confused about a lot of it to be quite honest.

:03:21.:03:23.

When he attended the High Court in May, his counsel made it clear

:03:24.:03:27.

he did not kill or assault Mr Lubbock.

:03:28.:03:29.

The court heard he was seeking substantial damages,

:03:30.:03:33.

claiming his arrest and the worldwide publicity it

:03:34.:03:36.

Giving judgment in the case against the Chief Constable

:03:37.:03:41.

of Essex, Mr Justice Stewart Smith said the police accepted the arrest

:03:42.:03:44.

The designated arresting officer sufficiently briefed to arrest him

:03:45.:03:50.

The officer who did arresting did not have the grounds

:03:51.:03:56.

for suspecting he had committed the offences alleged.

:03:57.:03:59.

The judge ruled that Mr Barrymore was entitled to more

:04:00.:04:01.

The 65-year-old was suing for ?2.5 million.

:04:02.:04:08.

The police have talked about a nominal sum of ?1.

:04:09.:04:13.

Using Mr Barrymore's real name, Michael Parker, Essex Police said...

:04:14.:04:39.

The force said Mr Lubbock's family and friends still need to know

:04:40.:04:43.

The sum to be awarded to Mr Barrymore will be decided

:04:44.:04:48.

The number of Londoners falling victim to "cyber-flashing"

:04:49.:04:56.

could be going unreported, because women are not

:04:57.:04:59.

The crime occurs when strangers send illicit images to a victim's mobile

:05:00.:05:04.

Jim Wheble is here with more, and this is a problem on the tube?

:05:05.:05:13.

Well, anecdotally it seems to be. This could happen anywhere, where

:05:14.:05:19.

there's public WiFi. It's down it a fiction called air drop on one of

:05:20.:05:23.

these, iPhone, the idea is really you're out with a friend. The take a

:05:24.:05:27.

nice picture and you can just send that phone to phone. The problem is

:05:28.:05:33.

that if you haven't paid attention to your settings, anyone within 30

:05:34.:05:38.

feet can send you an image. You innocently open it and find it might

:05:39.:05:42.

be something unpleasant. This happened to the latest victim. She

:05:43.:05:46.

was a journalist, wrote about it and found lots of people got in touch

:05:47.:05:48.

and said they'd had the same thing. I was sent a request to receive

:05:49.:05:52.

120 explicit images. There is no sense of expectation

:05:53.:05:55.

for something like that to happen, so I was a little bit confused

:05:56.:05:57.

and also very aware there To be honest, I felt

:05:58.:06:01.

embarrassed more than anything. You know, then it

:06:02.:06:06.

transitioned into anger. There are things you can do. It's

:06:07.:06:15.

all down to your settings. Can you either have it set to everyone,

:06:16.:06:18.

which is the one you don't want or you can have it set to just your

:06:19.:06:23.

contacts. If you do that, then you won't have a problem.

:06:24.:06:25.

Thanks. That's it for now, but let's find

:06:26.:06:26.

out what the weather's up It's been a day of sunshine and

:06:27.:06:36.

showers. But we've been monitoring this clump of rain as it's raced

:06:37.:06:39.

across Wales and the south Midlands. That's coming into our area in the

:06:40.:06:43.

next couple of hours. Rain for London, but the rain is going to be

:06:44.:06:46.

heaviest towards the northern Home Counties. The rain will clear up and

:06:47.:06:50.

during the second half the night it becomes dry. Staying breezy.

:06:51.:06:54.

Temperatures looking at lows between 10 and 13 degrees. Over the weekend,

:06:55.:06:58.

I can't completely promise you it will stay dry all the time. There is

:06:59.:07:01.

a small chance of a shower on Saturday. But by and large, there's

:07:02.:07:04.

going to be a lot of dry weather with sunny spells around. The winds

:07:05.:07:07.

turning lighter as the weekend goes by. Here's Saturday's forecast:

:07:08.:07:11.

Starting with a dry note and sunshine. Cloud bubbling up. It

:07:12.:07:14.

could bring passing showers. For many of us, it will be a dry day. In

:07:15.:07:19.

the sunshine, temperatures into the low 20s, which should feel pleasant

:07:20.:07:23.

enough. Then, some reasonable weather on Sunday. Then what do you

:07:24.:07:27.

know? I think I might have found summer. Look at temperatures on

:07:28.:07:29.

Tuesday. summer. Look at temperatures on

:07:30.:07:31.

Tuesday. Hello there. Lots of showers around

:07:32.:07:39.

today. But it looks more promising as we head into the weekend both

:07:40.:07:43.

Saturday and Sunday we're going to have spells of sunshine and showers

:07:44.:07:47.

tomorrow, fewer than we've seen today. Maybe a chance of rain into

:07:48.:07:51.

the south-west later on Sunday. This was today's rain, though. We had

:07:52.:07:54.

quite a few thunder storms dancing away with those showers. Those have

:07:55.:07:59.

moved through. Recently we've seen heavier rain across Wales and into

:08:00.:08:01.

the
