Now on BBC One, it's time
for the news where you are.
Good evening, I'm Asad Ahmad.
Plans to make London the safest city
in the world for women have
come under attack...
from some women.
Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan,
has pledged millions of pounds
to start changing society's
attitudes towards women
and making them feel safer,
but his plan has also
been called "offensive".
Here's Sarah Harris.
Often people are so scared
to actually make a point
and say, you're doing this.
Listening to women from all
ages and backgrounds.
The Mayor determined to make
London a beacon for gender
equality across the world.
For him, that's not just
about tackling violence,
but changing attitudes.
We've got to prevent women
being the victims of violence,
women and girls, and that means
education, changing boys'
attitudes in particular.
Making sure that we
investment in young people.
Making sure there are
safe places to work.
The event was held at
the Royal Central School of Speech
and Drama where they've introduced
a zero-tolerance attitude
to sexual abuse.
Student Milly Wise was able to get
help when she says a man rubbed
himself against her in a bar.
She says a sign on the wall made it
clear where to get support.
I felt very uncomfortable,
it was not nice at all.
I actually felt a little bit
sick because I don't
want that on me at all.
But, like I say, I remembered seeing
the sign and it was definitely a big
reassurance to know that this space
had that system in place.
Across the world this week women
have been marching to celebrate
International Women's Day,
but not everyone is convinced in
London much intervention is needed.
You know, women have fought
for years to be treated as equals
and to be treated as strong,
and I actually find it a little bit
offensive this kind of a message
from the Mayor of London that,
you know, Sadiq Khan is going
to come and save all of us women.
We don't need him to save us,
we're all doing fine.
It's early days for the Mayor's
plans, but there'll be funding
for tackling perpetrators
and victim support.
The aim - to make the capital
the world's safest city for women.

A teenager who was shot and killed
in north London has been named
as 19-year-old Kelvin Odunuyi.
He was shot yesterday outside
a cinema in Wood Green.
Police are looking for two people
who rode off on a moped.
A patient with a serious
lung condition says
she was "horrified" to find that
three "Do Not Attempt Resuscitation"
forms were put on her medical
records against here
and her family's wishes.
Carol Hall was having treatment
at Frimley Park Hospital
when the forms were discovered.
Sophie Seth has been
speaking to Mrs Hall.
Frightening to think they could have
those forms and I didn't know
anything about them.
Carol has a degenerative lung
condition called COPD,
last summer a chest infection meant
she was in and out of
Frimley Park Hospital.
In that time, she had
three do not attempt
resuscitation forms on her file.
Both she and her husband told me
they had no knowledge of them.
All three forms said that Carol
and her family agreed
she shouldn't be resuscitated,
something they dispute.
Resuscitation has risks.
Doctors are advised that a patient's
wishes should always be considered,
but they don't have to give
treatment if they believe it
won't benefit the patient.
However, medical guidelines state
that doctors must provide
"honest and accurate record-keeping"
of the process.
I've contacted Frimley Park
Hospital, but it says it cannot
comment on this particular case.
However, it says it understands
the importance of good communication
when it comes to issues around
do not attempt cardiopulmonary
The hospital also says it's
reviewing its current forms
to ensure they are as clear
as possible for
clinicians and patients.
One charity has told us they have
seen an increase in patients
concerned about resuscitation forms.
We know that doctors are under a lot
of pressure and sometimes
the communication isn't happening,
and sometimes I think they're almost
frightened to have the conversation,
they're worried the patient
is going to be upset.
Carol is now receiving NHS
care packages at home,
she hopes no-one else goes
through what she did.
I'd like to see that they
are treated correctly,
with care and compassion
because some people out
there might not have any family
to stick up for them.
Carol Hall ending that
report by Sophie Seth.
After nearly 70 years
as one of Britain's most
famous music publications,
NME will no longer be available
as a magazine from today.
Its publisher says the decision
to stop the print edition
is due to rising costs.
One of its former writers is author
and journalist Tony Parsons,
who shared his memories.
I think if you were a child
in the '60s, then music
was absolutely at the centre
of your universe, and
the NME was my Bible.
# The Jean Genie
lives on his back #.
I ended up working for the NME
because it was the only job
in the world that I really wanted,
and it was...
I'll tell you what it was like,
it was like stepping
through the back of the wardrobe
It was a completely magical
and transcendent experience.
# The Shareef don't like it #.
We discovered bands
and we championed bands
and we understood what the little
kernel of magic at their heart.
When the NME was great,
and it was great for knocking
on for half a century.
You know, we were standing
on the shoulders of giants.
You know, we had so
much to write about.
It's a period of time,
a magical embarrassment of riches.
A great golden era for music
that's drawing to a close,
and the NME's part of it.
Some great musical memories
there with Tony Parsons.
Let's get the weather now with Stav.

I got caught out in the rain today?
I know. That was... This was the
thing of the past. Early on this
morning it was glorious. Quickly
conditions went down hill and cloud
and rain spread northwards.
be wet tonight it will introduce
milder air. This weekend is looking
much milder than last weekend. There
will be sunshine and showers. The
overnight rain will clear. Through
quite quickly. By dawn there should
be clear spells and mist and fog
around. Temperatures no lower than
10 or 11 degrees to start Saturday.
Early brightness will diminish. A
band of showery rain will spread up
from the south. Some could be heavy
in places. We could see a little bit
of brightness in between. What you
will notice is the temperatures, 14
or 15 degrees maybe 16 degrees. That
is much milder than what we had of
late. That mild theme will remain
for the week ahead. It will be
fairly unsettled at times. Windy as
well as we head through the course
of the week. Stay tuned
