A 15-year-old boy stabbed to death outside the gates of his school has
He was attacked as he waited at a bus stop, then fled
towards Capital City Academy in Kensal Green before collapsing
Nick, what more can you tell us about this attack?
This happened at about 3.30 yesterday afternoon, a time when
hundreds of pupils at the school behind me were streaming out about
200 metres down the road, we know that a 15-year-old pupil, Quamari
Barnes, was about key test for a distant and was reportedly heard to
say, he's going to stab me. We know he was then attacked and despite the
efforts of paramedics who got here quickly, he could not be saved.
Today, pupils have been leaving tributes to him. You can see there
are some 50 bouquets of flowers that have been left. There are
photographs and messages. One note said
simply, you stood up for me when no one else did. We also spoke to
another close friend of his earlier today, and he gave us a sense of his
shock and disbelief at what had happened.
He was the most loved person in the whole of our school, like.
It's just emotional, because every day...
Just today, we were all around the tables, having fun.
Today I gave him a hug and said, get home safely.
And today out of all days, I come out of school and see
All these teenagers out here are running around with knives
That's why we need to change our perception of everyone thinking
teenagers are bad and all this and all that.
What have police said about the attack? There have been police
officers here at the score all morning and some are still
patrolling the premises as we speak. Murder squad detectives are
obviously leading this investigation, and they are
appealing directly to pupils of this school and also to their parents,
asking them for any information, because they believe that can be
vital in solving this case. We know they have been carrying out
door-to-door inquiries and trying to piece together as much information
as possible. In terms of the school year, the headteacher has been paid
tribute to his 15-year-old pupil who died. We know that the majority of
the pupils here have left for the day now. Some have been picked up,
others have made their way home. And counselling is available to them.
The boy who died yesterday is in fact the second teenager to be
stabbed to death in London this year. The first was attacked and
killed last Friday. There have been no arrests in this case, but the
police are, as I say, appealing for witnesses.
London's four largest sexual health clinics saw a 40% reduction
in new HIV diagnoses last year - the largest seen in London
since the beginning of the HIV and Aids epidemic.
Experts say the decline could be due to the drug called PrEP, as BBC
Every day, Jason takes these pills. But they haven't been prescribed by
the doctor. These are called PrEP and were bought on the internet. He
says they are saving his life. It was quite tricky to find, and I
wasn't sure about how genuine the product was that I was purchasing.
But I had to go to extremes to protect myself. Last year, four of
London's leading sexual health to lick saw the greatest reduction in
new HIV diagnoses they have seen since the beginning of the epidemic
in the 1980s. Experts are advising that it may be due to this drug. So
how does the drug worked? Well, trials have shown that the drug
prevents HIV from being passed from one person to another, and that is
why some experts say that this drug is a game changer against the
disease. PrEP is a very effective prevention strategy. I wouldn't say
it is a wonder drug, because nothing in isolation is the answer when it
comes to preventing HIV transmission. PrEP has given us an
effective additional tool to combine with the other tools we had which
were not working. It is currently not available on the NHS. Until that
happens, thousands of the capital's gay men are turning to the web to
buy the drug. About 35,000 Londoners have visited our site in the last 12
months. We have effectively created a community health care system that
sits outside our national health care system. At the end of last
year, the NHS lost a high-profile court case, meaning the drug will be
made available on the NHS in the future. In a statement, NHS England
said: until PrEP is available on the NHS,
Jason and many other gay men will continue to access the drug from
sites selling it on the internet. There was major disruption
for commuters in south London this morning after a freight train
derailed, causing massive delays. Two carriages came off
a Southeastern track in Lewisham, causing services to be suspended,
cancelled or diverted. Passengers faced tough journeys
into work, while thousands continue to face disruption,
with warnings that all Plans for a new home for the Museum
of London in West Smithfield's disused market have received
a multi-million pound boost today. The City of London Corporation
pledged to give ?110 million, while the the Mayor of London's
office will give 70 million. It puts plans to open the new museum
by 2022 back on track, From a forgotten part of Farringdon
to London's first 24 hour museum. the people behind the Museum
of London have grand ambitions. We'll be able to put on more
exhibitions, more collections, bring more things out of our stores,
have great programmes, and I want us
to be a 24 hour museum. The old market at West Smithfield
will become home to the 6 million items currently down the road
at the old Museum of London. With a ?70 million slice
coming from City Hall, this is the largest cultural
investment made by a London mayor. It's a project designed
to build legacies. I campaigned saying I wanted to make
sure culture was a top priority. I think culture is in the DNA
of our city, it's the glue We will have this museum,
not just the best of the last we'll go back 400,000 years.
It's going to be fantastic. Three years ago, a project to turn
the site into shops was blocked despite being backed by the very
people who today dipped their hands into their pockets
to the tune of ?10 million. It was called in by
the Secretary of State, We have to accept that decision
and we've now made the best of it by buying the building
for the museum. There's been a market
here for a thousand years. and that all-important
planning application, that this building could last
a thousand years more. It was another cold and frosty
start this morning, with all that fog as well,
freezing fog across the board. You could barely see
anything, as you can see It's still a bit misty here and
there, but blue sky and sunshine. It really has turned
into a lovely day. Yes, it's still cold,
but we have plenty of sunshine. There are still one or two
spots where the mist and fog is still lingering,
but most of it is gradually starting to lift for a bright afternoon,
but temperatures are struggling. The Met Office has a yellow weather
warning, the first one for fog This is overnight tonight
and through to tomorrow morning. Again, it's a bit of
a repeat performance The sun sets and the temperature
drops down below zero in some spots, And with temperatures as low
as they are, that fog could freeze. There are some tricky driving
conditions overnight The fog is likely to lift quicker
through the course of tomorrow, It looks like a predominantly
grey day on the whole. Temperatures are again
going to struggle. We're looking at low single
figures as a maximum. As we head further through the week,
we hang on to a little bit of this cold air,
so another cold night Wednesday into Thursday,
and a cold day. The breeze starts to pick up
as we head through Thursday, Riz will be here with our
6:30 evening programme. But for now, from us all,
a very good afternoon. TV: He's not your father.
WOMAN GASPS so why not pay your TV licence in

that history is just a record
