"You don't just kill a son, you kill a whole family."
The words of Ricky Hayden's father -
in a machete attack outside his home in Romford.
The 27-year-old confronted a group of teenagers he suspected of trying
Today, one of them was given a 14-year jail sentence
They came to court hoping for justice, wearing orange,
Ricky Hayden was a security guard, and gave close personal
He was at his family home in Romford last September when there
Ricky, his brother and his dad ran out onto this street.
They thought that Ricky's brother's scooter was about to be stolen.
The men that they confronted, Tommy Roome and Tarrell Hinds,
Rick, who had run out into the road in just his boxer shorts,
He was stabbed, and died later in hospital.
They don't just kill the person, they kill the family.
Hinds was acquitted, Roome was found guilty of manslaughter.
At the end of the day, it is a good, good result,
so that's one more person off the streets that we have not got
My son, he died for nothing, just to stop someone
stealing a motorbike, and it's wrong.
We've lost a son, a perfect son, he was perfect
I don't want anyone to go through that.
We're just going to fight for knife crime now.
We need to get these kids off the streets with these knives.
Away from the court, his family and friends met to remember.
Data picked up from the mobile phones used by commuters
on the Tube could be used to help tackle overcrowding.
It follows a four-week trial over the summer.
Wi-fi has become something Londoners use on the Tube everyday.
But now TfL has found a way for us and the wi-fi to work for them, too.
Transport for London used to be able to tell where you were going simply
by looking at where you tapped in and out with your Oyster card.
But now, thanks to wi-fi, it can tell not just where you're going,
Over the summer, Transport for London tracked the phones of two
As people went on their journeys, they created a personal map,
and for a system that's so fixed, the way we use it is
For example, almost a third of everybody going from Waterloo
to King's Cross took the Bakerloo line to Oxford Circus
and then changed onto the Victoria line.
But people used no fewer than 18 different routes just
TfL say it shows pinch points they didn't know
We'd love to be able to give this information to customers
who are at a Tube station, to be able to say, take
this particular path, because it's less busy.
Or to be able to provide information if there's
a disruption on the network, to explain what's happening
But how do people feel about TfL knowing our every move?
Sounds quite scary, I've only just moved to London so I'm getting
If it speeds up the system and creates a more efficient
TfL say the data was double scrambled to keep it all anonymous.
But who knows, one day, checking your e-mails could not just
keep you connected but could keep us all moving, too.
It's a first - driverless buses in the capital.
And for the next fortnight, Londoners will be able
to take a ride one, around the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
Our transport correspondent Tom Edwards explains.
This is an autonomous bus, driven by computer, on trial
on a 12-minute loop around the Olympic Park.
Travelling at 2mph, there is a staff member on board.
You can see now, we're moving incredibly smoothly,
And the technology is there, it's brilliant.
You think computers are better drivers generally than human beings?
From this 5-10 minute journey, then yeah, probably, I'd say!
London is seeing a number of trials of driverless vehicles -
And the Government is trying to make it easier to attract investment
It's all part of a revolution I think that's going to change
the lives of people across the world.
We're going to see vehicles that can provide better transport options
for people with disabilities, provide better public transport
links at odd times of the day, when a vehicle like this can fill
a link which wouldn't otherwise be there.
So, I think we're on the brink of starting a transport revolution.
It uses cameras and lasers to scan the road, but what if someone
Some think autonomous vehicles will reduce
Others fear it will mean fewer jobs for drivers.
These have already been tested in other cities.
It needs to be developed over time, and that's why trials like this
We'll be trialling this alongside pedestrians
We've had other, smaller-scale trials and we're using all that data
These are still early days in this emerging industry.
This bus, which is free to catch, will be running
That's it from me, I'll leave you now with Stav,
Thank you. It looks like the showers will be continuing to ease away
during the night. Lengthy clear spells developing and turning fairly
fresh as well. Into tomorrow, it's a day of sunshine and showers and
feeling again on the cool side. Starting off with one or two showers
around as well as some sunny spells and the showers will be getting
going in the afternoon. The showers die away during Saturday night as
average of high pressure builds in. Before that point, it will be quite
a fresh start in the Home Counties, with some good spells of sunshine
later on. Then the rain will arrive. It remains unsettled into next week
as well. Quite windy on Monday. Hello. There are signs that by this
time next week, our weather will be trying to settle down. Until then,
it is low pressure after low pressure. This one will be coming in
on Sunday, with rain spreading south-east across the UK. Around our
first area of low pressure, the wind will continue to blow in plenty of
showers to western parts of the UK overnight. Watch out for the
northern lights in Scotland - quite a show last night and it could be
again tonight. And maybe in parts of north-east England as well. In the
west it looks 30 wet in the morning in the north-west tomorrow. Some
showers in Scotland but then becoming widespread across England
and Wales in the
