Now on BBC1, it's time

for the news where you are.Have

0:00:000:00:00

Good evening, I'm Asad Ahmad.

0:00:120:00:15

Tonight, train passengers have

risked their lives after taking

0:00:150:00:17

matters into their own hands

when they became stranded

0:00:170:00:20

on a train in Lewisham.

0:00:200:00:25

Passengers on the Southeastern

service fed-up with being stuck

0:00:250:00:27

on the train started to jump off

and onto live tracks.

0:00:270:00:30

Police were called and the power

was urgently turned off.

0:00:300:00:33

Here's Ayshea Buksh.

0:00:330:00:37

A packed Southeast train out

of London is stranded.

0:00:370:00:39

Passengers wait for three hours

just outside Lewisham

0:00:390:00:45

station but, for some,

it's too much.

0:00:450:00:47

They manage to open a door and walk

out onto the tracks.

0:00:470:00:50

The power lines are turned

off and, as a result,

0:00:500:00:52

more trains are held up.

0:00:520:00:54

# Happy birthday to you!

0:00:540:00:57

Spirits inside this train

to Orpington are kept up

0:00:570:01:00

by chocolate and singing.

0:01:000:01:04

So we got on the train at about

6:30pm from London, Charing Cross.

0:01:040:01:08

Going ahead as normal and I think

we're just outside New Cross now.

0:01:080:01:11

We've been here for about

two and half hours.

0:01:110:01:13

Elsewhere on the train network,

passengers struggled to leave

0:01:130:01:15

the centre of London.

0:01:150:01:16

Southwest Trains said they'd

stopped running trains

0:01:160:01:18

out of Waterloo by 8pm.

0:01:180:01:22

Well, it's nearly half-past eight

at Waterloo station.

0:01:220:01:24

The station is now officially closed

but there are still quite a lot

0:01:240:01:27

of passengers on the concourse

wanting to travel and there are

0:01:270:01:30

still a few trains about to depart.

0:01:300:01:35

I also find Abdul, who's

on his own and can't get home.

0:01:350:01:39

Did you know about

the trains stopping?

0:01:390:01:42

I don't suppose you're

on social media?

0:01:420:01:45

Yeah, I checked it.

0:01:450:01:47

Abdul finally got his train back...

0:01:470:01:49

Thank you very much.

0:01:490:01:53

Others may not be so lucky

and are forced to stay

0:01:530:01:55

in London overnight.

0:01:550:02:04

Big problems at Waterloo station.

The train operators said they would

0:02:040:02:09

not be running trains beyond a

certain time. The message did not

0:02:090:02:14

get through to everyone. I spoke to

people who had come back from

0:02:140:02:18

holiday or had to take people to

hospital. They may have been on

0:02:180:02:22

business trips are struggling to get

back. As for that gentleman, he did

0:02:220:02:27

get help. There were station staff

out in force on platforms.

With

0:02:270:02:33

regards to Lewisham and people

jumping off the trains, that was

0:02:330:02:37

really dangerous, wasn't it?

They

were walking on live tracks, the

0:02:370:02:42

operator points out. If you follow

the south-east train Twitter feed,

0:02:420:02:48

there was a list of warning. Stay

inside the train to do not leave and

0:02:480:02:53

do not move. Power has been

restored. All the trapped trains

0:02:530:02:58

have been moved on through to

Lewisham, Orpington Way. If people

0:02:580:03:04

are on trains they will be moving

and they should be getting home.

0:03:040:03:07

Some people may not have made the

last train home. Very limited trains

0:03:070:03:12

out to Kent and Sussex this evening.

Tomorrow, there are planned

0:03:120:03:17

engineering works across the

network. South Eastern trains told

0:03:170:03:20

me if there is bad weather against

some of the rail replacement buses

0:03:200:03:25

will not be working tomorrow.

The

advice is to check before people

0:03:250:03:29

leave home.

0:03:290:03:36

Black and ethnic minority staff

working for London's authorities

0:03:360:03:38

are paid on average 17% less

than their white counterparts.

0:03:380:03:40

The Mayor of London published

the first ever ethnicity pay audit

0:03:400:03:43

of the Greater London Authority,

which includes the police

0:03:430:03:45

and Fire Service.

0:03:450:03:46

Sadiq Khan said he was determined

to confront the inequality.

0:03:460:03:53

An unqualified religious teacher

who attempted to groom children

0:03:530:03:55

in East London faces jail tonight

after being convicted

0:03:550:03:57

of preparing acts of terror.

0:03:570:03:59

Umar Haque had boys aged as young

as 11 act out roles involving

0:03:590:04:02

weapons and a car bomb,

while he planned attacks on dozens

0:04:020:04:08

of targets across London.

0:04:080:04:09

Here's Karl Mercer.

0:04:090:04:11

Now facing jail for plotting terror

attacks, Umar Haque is accused

0:04:110:04:14

of radicalising more than 100

youngsters in East London.

0:04:140:04:16

They were to be his so-called "army

of children", trained

0:04:160:04:18

and prepared to kill.

0:04:180:04:22

Inspired by the attack

on Westminster Bridge,

0:04:220:04:23

Haque is said to have plotted

attacks of his own on high-profile

0:04:230:04:28

London targets including Big Ben,

Westfield shopping centre,

0:04:280:04:30

Transport for London

and the Houses of Parliament.

0:04:300:04:34

When he was arrested,

police found this knife

0:04:340:04:36

in his Ford Focus car.

0:04:360:04:38

He was in the very early stages

of research, so he had researched

0:04:380:04:42

various iconic sites across London,

he had researched terrorist

0:04:420:04:45

propaganda and attacks that had

taken place elsewhere in the world.

0:04:450:04:51

Although not a trained teacher,

the court heard Haque had taken

0:04:510:04:53

classes at a private Islamic school

in Waltham Forest and at a mosque

0:04:530:04:56

in Barking, where he showed

terrorist material to young boys

0:04:560:04:58

in this marquee.

0:04:580:05:03

He would teach young boys in secret.

0:05:030:05:05

He had them physically training,

but also role-playing

0:05:050:05:08

for a terror attack or how

to kill police officers.

0:05:080:05:10

He warned them that if they revealed

what he'd told them,

0:05:100:05:13

they would die or go to hell.

0:05:130:05:17

We believe that he radicalised

about 110 children, 35

0:05:170:05:19

of which are now receiving

long-term safeguarding support.

0:05:190:05:26

Today the Charity

Commission revealed

0:05:260:05:27

it was investigating the mosque.

0:05:270:05:28

It also opened an investigation

into a school where Haque taught,

0:05:280:05:32

where it was alleged he tried

to radicalise boys.

0:05:320:05:35

For a year from September 2015,

Umar Haque worked here

0:05:350:05:37

at the Lantern of Knowledge School

in Waltham Forest.

0:05:370:05:41

He was employed as an administrator

but actually ended up teaching

0:05:410:05:44

so-called Islamic studies.

0:05:440:05:46

In fact, during those

lessons to young boys

0:05:460:05:48

aged between 11 and 16,

he was showing them videos.

0:05:480:05:52

The jury were unable to reach

a verdict on this charge,

0:05:520:05:55

but did find Haque guilty

of a number of other

0:05:550:05:58

terror-related charges.

0:05:580:06:00

The Lantern of Knowledge Trust said

today it treated the safety

0:06:000:06:03

and welfare of its pupils

with the utmost importance.

0:06:030:06:05

Also found guilty of preparing

acts of terrorism was

0:06:050:06:08

19-year-old Abuthaler Mamun.

0:06:080:06:11

27-year-old Muhammed

Abid, from East Ham.

0:06:110:06:14

The alleged armourer, Nadeem Patel,

pleaded guilty to possessing

0:06:140:06:17

a handgun but was cleared

of plotting a terror attack.

0:06:170:06:21

Haque will be sentenced

at the end of the month.

0:06:210:06:25

That's it from me.

0:06:250:06:32

I'll be back tomorrow

at 6.20am on BBC One,

0:06:320:06:34

but now the weather with Darren.

0:06:340:06:35

We have seen the back of the snow

but it is treacherous across many

0:06:390:06:44

parts of the region. As we head into

to it should not be as cold. It is

0:06:440:06:50

getting milder but we may get rain

later in the day. Not much falling

0:06:500:06:56

out of the sky. There will be a few

breaks in the cloud and the wind is

0:06:560:07:01

falling lighter. Attention turns to

icy conditions rather than the snow.

0:07:010:07:08

Temperatures down to -2 or minus

three. Still a cold start to the

0:07:080:07:13

weekend. It would be dry and

brighter and we may see sunshine

0:07:130:07:18

coming through after early mist and

fog. More of a southerly breeze,

0:07:180:07:23

lifting temperatures to around five,

6 degrees or so. Rain arriving later

0:07:230:07:29

in the evening. A wet start to

Sunday. The outlook shows

0:07:290:07:34

temperatures on the rise,
