Good evening, welcome to BBC
London News, I'm Claudia-Liza Armah.
More details now of the woman found
dead in a north London park.
Police say she was
22-year-old Iuliana Tudos.
She'd been missing since
Christmas Eve when she was last seen
heading for a bus home from Camden.
Tolu Adeoye reports
from Finsbury Park.
Flowers and cards have been left
here outside Finsbury Park
for 22-year-old Iuliana Tudos,
whose body was discovered
here yesterday afternoon.
Iuliana was reported missing
on the 24th of December,
but it was only yesterday at around
4:30 that a member of the public
found her body inside
next to the sports pitch
here in Finsbury Park.
Officers and the London
Ambulance Service were called,
but she was pronounced dead
at the scene.
Now, the park has been open
for much of the day,
but a significant area
was cordoned off.
We've seen forensic teams working,
and the police tent
is still up this evening.
We don't know how
Iuliana was killed,
but this is being
treated as a murder investigation.
A postmortem was due to take place
today at Haringey mortuary.
Police are keen to speak to anyone
who may have seen anything
suspicious over the holiday period.
They say they are trying to piece
together a timeline of events
and work out a motive
for this attack.
So they are appealing for anyone
who's seen anything to come forward.
Tolu Adeoye reporting there.
A great-grandmother says she's been
unable to leave her flat for seven
months after the lift
in her block broke down.
Bernice Grant and her daughter say
they have been offered a new place
but they may have to pay
for it to be made suitable
for the 81-year-old, who's disabled.
Emma North reports.
For seven months, Bernice Grant
hasn't left her flat.
I miss going out.
To see people and talk to people.
I want to go places.
Go to the day centre, to service.
But now I can't go anywhere.
The lift in her block in Penge
broke down at the end of May.
It is still broken.
Arthritis stops Mrs Grant
from moving very far,
and the four flights up to her flat
are well beyond her.
She relies entirely on her daughter.
Thank you very much.
My daughter, she has done her best.
She sees that I have something
to eat and drink
in the days while she is away.
She keep in touch
with me all the time.
And she comes home in the evening,
I am so glad to see her.
The housing association which
owns the block said
replacing the lifts takes time
and isn't straightforward.
It also says two other
properties have been offered
to Mrs Grant and her daughter.
Mrs Grant needs a wheelchair
and says they had to turn one down
because it was on a steep slope.
The other, her daughter says,
A spokesman for Affinity Sutton
said, "Whenever we make
an offer to a tenant,
we ensure we are satisfied
the property meets the whole
household's needs in terms
of accessibility and location."
Mrs Grant and her daughter
have been offered
and have said yes to a new flat,
but they have been told it is not
suitable for someone who is disabled
and there is no money to pay for any
changes - they may
have to foot the bill.
I am blessed, she's my mum.
She done a lot for us
when we were young and growing up.
It's payback time.
Just take our time,
being together is the main thing.
The main thing is, once we have
somewhere to call our home again,
that it what we want,
that is what we need.
Both Mrs Grant and her daughter say
they can't wait for next year,
they want things to get better
whatever the cost.

A woman has been left
with life-changing injuries
after she was sprayed
with acid in East London.
The 36-year-old had been walking
alone on Westferry Road
near South Quay station
at around seven o'clock last night
when she was attacked.
She was taken to hospital with burns
to her face and leg.
A new crowdfunding website
has been launched
to try and help
the capital's homeless.
It's called Beam, and the idea
is that people donate money online
to individuals who are homeless
to help them get training
and qualifications to do
the job they want to do.
People can simply go to the website,
which is wearebeam.org.
They can meet homeless people,
read their stories,
individuals who are referred
by homelessness charities.
They can read their career
aspirations and contribute
to the funding of those campaigns.
It might be an individual becoming
a plumber, electrician or teacher.
These are all different
Alex Bushill will be here tomorrow
morning with Breakfast.
I'll leave you with
the weather from Phil Avery.
Hello, I'm afraid
it's going be one of those starts
to the day on Friday,
quite a bit of rain with us,
and on the cold side as well.
quite a bit of rain with us,
The rain clears away and then it's
a mix of sunny spells and showers.
The early rain through the night
will be falling onto pretty cold
surfaces, so just watch out for ice
if you are on the move
first thing on Friday,
and for a time we might just be
on the southern fringe of all
the snow that you will have heard
about through the bulletins of late.
Once that rain has gone,
a mix of sunny spells and showers,
the showers urged along
by a noticeable westerly breeze,
temperatures never better
than about eight or nine
in the centre of town.
And it's a wet start
to Saturday as well,
though thankfully that moves away
on quite a noticeable
and then we get a wee bit
of brightness following
on through the afternoon
and look at those temperatures,
12 or 13 degrees or so,
and we keep a similar sort of thing
going as we get on through Sunday,
a fraction cooler on Monday.
