Now on BBC One, it's time

for the news where you are.

0:00:000:00:25

Good evening.

for the news where you are.

0:00:250:00:26

I'm Asad Ahmad.

for the news where you are.

0:00:260:00:27

The ongoing spat between US

President, Donald Trump

0:00:270:00:29

and Mayor of London,

Sadeeq Khan - has taken another turn

0:00:290:00:31

today after the presidential visit

to London next month was cancelled.

0:00:310:00:34

The decision has been

welcomed by Mr Khan -

0:00:340:00:36

who thinks the President has finally

got the message that Londoners

0:00:360:00:39

won't welcome him here.

0:00:390:00:40

Here's our Political

Correspondent, Karl Mercer.

0:00:400:00:44

Please don't touch him, please.

0:00:440:00:45

They didn't in the end

touch the wax one

0:00:450:00:47

and they won't get to touch

the real one either,

0:00:470:00:50

but fake Donald did make

0:00:500:00:51

an appearance this morning.

0:00:510:00:54

Fun for the builders

who queued for selfies,

0:00:540:00:56

slight bemusement for

0:00:560:00:57

the armed police.

0:00:570:00:59

Protecting a waxwork president

but who won't now have

0:00:590:01:02

to protect the real thing.

0:01:020:01:04

The new embassy will instead be

opened by the American

0:01:040:01:06

Secretary of State,

with many blaming

0:01:060:01:08

the change of heart

on the

0:01:080:01:09

threat of mass protest in London.

0:01:090:01:12

The Mayor needs to be careful

because he is not elected to speak

0:01:120:01:15

for the Britain.

0:01:150:01:19

for Britain.

0:01:190:01:20

He is elected to help to run London

and it would be nice if he

0:01:200:01:24

focused on his day job,

fixed the black hole

0:01:240:01:26

in our finances he has created,

build some houses and got on top

0:01:260:01:29

of knife crime epidemic.

0:01:290:01:30

Sadiq Khan and President

Trump have form.

0:01:300:01:32

After being elected,

the Mayor criticised Donald Trump's

0:01:320:01:33

planned ban on some Muslim

immigration to the States.

0:01:330:01:36

My views are simple.

0:01:360:01:46

President Trump, your views

on Islam are ignorant.

0:01:460:01:48

He doesn't know me, I think

they are very rude statements

0:01:480:01:51

and frankly, tell him

I will remember those statements.

0:01:510:01:53

They are very nasty statements.

0:01:530:01:54

In the wake of the London

Bridge attacks last

0:01:540:01:56

year, Donald Trump

tweeted this:

0:01:560:02:00

In fact,

0:02:050:02:11

Sadiq Khan has said there

was

0:02:110:02:13

no need to be alarmed by the extra

police on the streets.

0:02:130:02:16

We will not allow

anybody to divide our

0:02:160:02:18

communities.

0:02:180:02:19

Back to this morning

and the selfies were still

0:02:190:02:21

going strong.

0:02:210:02:24

So were tweets, this time from Boris

0:02:240:02:26

Johnson, who blamed Sadiq Khan

and Jeremy Corbyn for putting the

0:02:260:02:32

UK special relationship at risk,

calling the mayor a pompous popinjay

0:02:320:02:41

in City Hall, a little rich say some

given that Boris Johnson had his own

0:02:410:02:45

spat with Donald Trump

after these comments in 2015.

0:02:450:02:47

We have places that are

so radicalised that police fear for

0:02:470:02:50

their lives.

0:02:500:02:51

Boris Johnson replied

that the only reason he wouldn't

0:02:510:02:56

go to parts of New York

was the real risk of

0:02:560:02:59

meeting Donald Trump.

0:02:590:03:00

Although it seems they have made up.

0:03:000:03:02

I think that the Foreign Secretary,

should, if he has something sensible

0:03:020:03:06

to say, to say it properly but to

insult the American President and

0:03:060:03:11

the current Mayor of London, is

surely beneath the dignitary of

0:03:110:03:14

being the Foreign Secretary.

Donald Trump has been invited to a

0:03:140:03:20

full state visit to the UK but not

date on when it might happen, if it

0:03:200:03:25

ever does.

0:03:250:03:34

A Britain First supporter

who gave a Nazi salute -

0:03:340:03:36

and told a police officer

he was going to "kill a Muslim"

0:03:360:03:39

before driving at his victim

in Harrow - has been found

0:03:390:03:42

guilty of the crime -

yet tonight, he's a free man.

0:03:420:03:45

Before the attack in June,

Mareck Zakrotski admitted

0:03:450:03:47

to also beating his wife.

0:03:470:03:48

He was today sentenced to over

30 weeks in prison -

0:03:480:03:50

but was free to go after the time

spent on remand.

0:03:500:03:53

Protestors in Camden have

taken direct action -

0:03:530:03:56

by chaining themselves to trees

to make their opposition heard

0:03:560:03:58

to the High Speed Rail Link, HS2.

0:03:580:04:01

They say the impact of the line

will be 'devastating'

0:04:010:04:03

although HS2 bosses believe the link

will give Londoners

0:04:030:04:05

a reason to celebrate.

0:04:060:04:07

Here's our Transport

Correspondent, Tom Edwards.

0:04:070:04:11

The Bree Louise, a much-loved

and popular real ale pub in Euston.

0:04:110:04:15

At the end of the month,

though, it'll shut to make

0:04:150:04:17

way for a high-speed

rail link, HS2.

0:04:170:04:20

It's been here for 15 years,

and even now the owners

0:04:200:04:23

still don't know how much

compensation they'll get.

0:04:230:04:27

It's not through choice, you know?

0:04:280:04:30

If we had a choice, we'd be

here until the day we died.

0:04:300:04:33

The impact it's had on us

personally, it's our house,

0:04:330:04:37

our home, our livelihood and has

been for the last nearly 15 years.

0:04:370:04:40

It's totally horrendous.

0:04:400:04:42

It's heartbreaking, it

really is heartbreaking.

0:04:420:04:46

I'm getting to the stage

now where I just carry

0:04:460:04:48

tissues around permanently.

0:04:480:04:50

It's a proper chain,

I'm telling you, it's heavy.

0:04:500:04:52

Today, these protesters symbolically

chained themselves to trees.

0:04:520:04:55

Work is due to start here next week.

0:04:550:04:58

This spring, the trees will go.

0:04:580:05:02

The way this project

is coming into Euston,

0:05:020:05:04

it's having a devastating effect

on local homes and businesses, and

0:05:040:05:07

particularly on our green spaces.

0:05:070:05:13

We've said this at consultation

meetings, at select committees.

0:05:130:05:15

We've signed petitions,

we've given interviews,

0:05:150:05:19

and we just feel that none of it

has been heard.

0:05:190:05:21

The project to build a high-speed

rail link to the north

0:05:210:05:24

will cost £55 billion.

0:05:240:05:26

Hundreds of homes in

Camden will be lost.

0:05:260:05:30

Residents say they will face 17

years of disruption.

0:05:300:05:35

HS2, though, says the scheme

will create jobs, capacity,

0:05:350:05:37

and boost the UK economy.

0:05:370:05:41

The footprint for the site

of the HS2 project

0:05:410:05:44

in Euston is now huge.

0:05:440:05:50

HS2 says it will eventually

mean six new high-speed

0:05:500:05:55

platforms at Euston station.

0:05:550:06:00

And this work will eventually mean

this whole area will be

0:06:000:06:03

able to be redeveloped.

0:06:030:06:07

And any trees that are cut

down will be replaced.

0:06:070:06:12

HS2 says negotiations

are ongoing to work out final

0:06:120:06:14

compensation figures.

0:06:140:06:17

But many in Euston feel crushed

by a huge scheme they never wanted.

0:06:170:06:20

Tom Edwards, BBC London News.

0:06:200:06:26

That's it for now from me,

but lets find out what the weather's

0:06:260:06:29

up to with Chris Fawkes.

0:06:290:06:35

I'm glad you are wearing blue, it

gives colour to the grey behind you!

0:06:350:06:40

I'm glad you are wearing blue, it

gives colour to the grey behind you!

0:06:400:06:42

Yesterday, the cloud was at the top

of the buildings, I said it would be

0:06:420:06:46

higher but there is a lot of cloud

still around. The trend of lifting

0:06:460:06:50

cloud is the case this weekend. The

picture shows how cloudy it has been

0:06:500:06:54

through the day. The cloud is going

nowhere, staying grey. But for the

0:06:540:06:59

vast majority it is a

straightforward night, staying dry.

0:06:590:07:03

Temperatures at four to five

Celsius, with gaps in the cloud.

0:07:030:07:08

Temperatures getting down to one

Celsius in one or two colder spots.

0:07:080:07:13

Saturday and a dry day. Cloudy but

the winds are stronger. That should

0:07:130:07:19

blow a few gaps in the cloud. A few

glimpses of sunshine. The

0:07:190:07:24

temperature similar to today.

Looking ahead, Sunday is a cloudy

0:07:240:07:28

day. Outbreaks of rain for Monday.

And turning
