Now on BBC One, it's time
for the news where you are.
I'm Victoria Hollins.
Jeremy Corbyn and the Mayor Sadiq
Khan came together today,
to pledge local residents should be
given more power when housing
estates are being regenerated.
If they don't like the plans,
they could then be scrapped.
Our political correspondent
Karl Mercer joined the Labour leader
and Mayor in Barnet.
At the expense of the working-class
community that's been here forever.
They may be three months away
but the campaign trail
for May's local elections
is already being trod.
I'm looking forward to us winning
for the people of this area.
Expect to see plenty more of this
pair across the capital.
In Barnet this morning,
one of Labour's key targets.
We were trying to work out
which famous double act
you would most resemble.
Ant and Dec?
Jekyll and Hyde?
I thought Starsky and Hutch!
Or Cagney and Lacey, we don't mind.
Laurel and Hardy.
They've clearly worked
on working together.
They've not always been
on the same page politically.
Today though, they were.
The Mayor unveiling plans for people
living on estates to have the final
say in any regeneration
of their area, if the developers
want City Hall money.
The expectation is you will consult
with and engage with residents
and then there will be a ballot
of those residents.
Unless the residents are in favour,
you will get no funding from me.
It's a plan backed by his party
leader, and comes in the middle
of the ongoing row in neighbouring
Haringey over the Labour council's
regeneration plans there.
It's leader Claire
Kober quit this week.
In a bitter row, local Labour Party
opponents had challenged her plans
to build 6,500 homes in partnership
with a private developer.
She says she stood down
because of sexism,
bullying and intimidation
by Labour Party colleagues.
Any sexism, any bullying,
is totally wrong in any
circumstances by anybody and any
complaints when received
will of course be investigated.
He now wants locals in Haringey
consulted over what happens next.
That is the key point.
Local residents should
have their say in what happens.
I definitely agree with that
because then it's you're taking
consideration about how people feel
before doing anything.
I believe it's important
local people get a vote,
because I think there's too much
underhandedness going on.
When you redevelop an area a lot
of the time people can't afford
to live in the area.
I think you definitely
need to have a say.
In Barnet, new homes continue to go
up and the issue will be a key one
in the coming elections.
We have built things, he hasn't,
the mayor hasn't built anything.
It's the boroughs that do it.
You can see in neighbouring
Haringey, Momentum Labour
interfering in the way things
are done and the result
is nothing will be built.
It is a great tragedy for the people
who urgently need homes.
The Mayor's plans could affect up
to 25 estate regeneration plans
across the capital each year.
Karl Mercer, BBC London News.
A legal challenge against
the planned release of the serial
sex attacker John Worboys
will start next week.
Judges will consider
whether to allow the Mayor of London
and two of his victims to apply
for a judicial review.
The Parole Board provoked anger last
month after announcing Worboys
would be released from prison.
It's a week on from when three boys
were killed in a car crash
in Hayes, west London.
Teenagers Harry Rice,
George Wilkinson and Josh McGuinness
were hit by a motorist on their way
to a birthday party.
Tonight a vigil has been held
in their memory, close
to where they lived in Harefield.
Chris Rogers reports.
Five, four, three, two, one.
At exactly 8:40pm one week ago the
village of Harefield lost three much
loved teenagers. Josh McGuinness and
George Wilkinson, aged 16, and Harry
Lewis Rice, aged 17, didn't make it
home from football practice. A car
ploughed into a bus stop and ended
their short lives. How do you feel
about the turnout tonight for your
brother and his friends?
incredible. I didn't really expect
less than this because they were
incredible boys and they had so many
friends, and this is obviously a
small village, so everyone knows
everyone here and they went to
school here. It's just amazing and
it really brings us joy in this sad
The loss of the three boys has
hit the community so badly.
It's devastating to me
and everybody who knew him
and the families as well,
they must be really, really hurt.
I feel for them, I really do.
Dave Gentry is struggling to
comprehensive three students that
will never return to his kick boxing
This is a little bit of a
video of George doing kick boxing.
It's a treasured moment of his most
regular and perhaps talented club
He was a great
martial artist, very good. I'm sure
he'd have made a black belt. It
tells you about is cheeky way, his
lovable way, his fun way.
alleged driver has been charged with
three counts of death
by dangerous but many say it was a
tragedy waiting to happen.
Pedestrians have been hit on this
road before. This is a community not
only united in grief but in anger.
There's a feeling here that three
lives were lost unnecessarily.
West Ham have sacked their director
of player recruitment, Tony Henry.
It followed an investigation
into claims he told agents
that the Premier League club didn't
want to sign any more
In a statement West Ham said it
would not tolerate any
type of discrimination.
That's it for now from me.
Let's find out what the weather's up
to with Matt Taylor.
Thank you, good evening. I hate to
say it, tomorrow you are not going
to see much of this, but a bit of
sunshine to finish the day across
the capital. Temperatures dropping,
could see a touch of frost around in
places. By the time we get towards
dawn the cloud will be thickening
towards the north and west.
Temperatures hovering around
freezing to start Saturday. A chilly
start or stop slow and sluggish to
lift, because cloud will be spilling
in, making for a great, dull day, a
cold day as well. Patchy light rain
or drizzle. On the tops of the
Chilterns you could see flake of
snow mixed in. In the afternoon,
temperatures 4-6, like winds. The
winds will pick up from Sunday, from
an north-easterly direction bringing
more sunshine and a scattering of
showers. Mainly of rain but some
sleet and snow could be mixed in.
Whilst the thermometers may show
4-6, is going to feel much colder,
closer to freezing thanks to the raw
wind. One thing to watch as we go
into Monday is the risk of a few
slow flurries to start the day but
the real story next week is keep
your winter clothes handy. It's
going to be
