A 15-year-old boy stabbed to death outside the gates of his school has

:00:12.:00:18.

He was attacked as he waited at a bus stop, then fled

:00:19.:00:27.

towards Capital City Academy in Kensal Green before collapsing

:00:28.:00:29.

Nick, what more can you tell us about this attack?

:00:30.:00:40.

This happened at about 3.30 yesterday afternoon, a time when

:00:41.:00:45.

hundreds of pupils at the school behind me were streaming out about

:00:46.:00:52.

200 metres down the road, we know that a 15-year-old pupil, Quamari

:00:53.:00:54.

Barnes, was about key test for a distant and was reportedly heard to

:00:55.:00:59.

say, he's going to stab me. We know he was then attacked and despite the

:01:00.:01:02.

efforts of paramedics who got here quickly, he could not be saved.

:01:03.:01:07.

Today, pupils have been leaving tributes to him. You can see there

:01:08.:01:10.

are some 50 bouquets of flowers that have been left. There are

:01:11.:01:14.

photographs and messages. One note said

:01:15.:01:25.

simply, you stood up for me when no one else did. We also spoke to

:01:26.:01:29.

another close friend of his earlier today, and he gave us a sense of his

:01:30.:01:32.

shock and disbelief at what had happened.

:01:33.:01:33.

He was the most loved person in the whole of our school, like.

:01:34.:01:37.

It's just emotional, because every day...

:01:38.:01:38.

Just today, we were all around the tables, having fun.

:01:39.:01:41.

Today I gave him a hug and said, get home safely.

:01:42.:01:43.

And today out of all days, I come out of school and see

:01:44.:01:47.

All these teenagers out here are running around with knives

:01:48.:01:51.

That's why we need to change our perception of everyone thinking

:01:52.:01:58.

teenagers are bad and all this and all that.

:01:59.:02:01.

What have police said about the attack? There have been police

:02:02.:02:12.

officers here at the score all morning and some are still

:02:13.:02:15.

patrolling the premises as we speak. Murder squad detectives are

:02:16.:02:19.

obviously leading this investigation, and they are

:02:20.:02:23.

appealing directly to pupils of this school and also to their parents,

:02:24.:02:27.

asking them for any information, because they believe that can be

:02:28.:02:31.

vital in solving this case. We know they have been carrying out

:02:32.:02:34.

door-to-door inquiries and trying to piece together as much information

:02:35.:02:38.

as possible. In terms of the school year, the headteacher has been paid

:02:39.:02:42.

tribute to his 15-year-old pupil who died. We know that the majority of

:02:43.:02:47.

the pupils here have left for the day now. Some have been picked up,

:02:48.:02:51.

others have made their way home. And counselling is available to them.

:02:52.:02:55.

The boy who died yesterday is in fact the second teenager to be

:02:56.:02:58.

stabbed to death in London this year. The first was attacked and

:02:59.:03:02.

killed last Friday. There have been no arrests in this case, but the

:03:03.:03:06.

police are, as I say, appealing for witnesses.

:03:07.:03:07.

London's four largest sexual health clinics saw a 40% reduction

:03:08.:03:12.

in new HIV diagnoses last year - the largest seen in London

:03:13.:03:15.

since the beginning of the HIV and Aids epidemic.

:03:16.:03:17.

Experts say the decline could be due to the drug called PrEP, as BBC

:03:18.:03:21.

Every day, Jason takes these pills. But they haven't been prescribed by

:03:22.:03:33.

the doctor. These are called PrEP and were bought on the internet. He

:03:34.:03:39.

says they are saving his life. It was quite tricky to find, and I

:03:40.:03:43.

wasn't sure about how genuine the product was that I was purchasing.

:03:44.:03:48.

But I had to go to extremes to protect myself. Last year, four of

:03:49.:03:52.

London's leading sexual health to lick saw the greatest reduction in

:03:53.:03:56.

new HIV diagnoses they have seen since the beginning of the epidemic

:03:57.:03:59.

in the 1980s. Experts are advising that it may be due to this drug. So

:04:00.:04:04.

how does the drug worked? Well, trials have shown that the drug

:04:05.:04:09.

prevents HIV from being passed from one person to another, and that is

:04:10.:04:12.

why some experts say that this drug is a game changer against the

:04:13.:04:19.

disease. PrEP is a very effective prevention strategy. I wouldn't say

:04:20.:04:23.

it is a wonder drug, because nothing in isolation is the answer when it

:04:24.:04:26.

comes to preventing HIV transmission. PrEP has given us an

:04:27.:04:30.

effective additional tool to combine with the other tools we had which

:04:31.:04:34.

were not working. It is currently not available on the NHS. Until that

:04:35.:04:39.

happens, thousands of the capital's gay men are turning to the web to

:04:40.:04:45.

buy the drug. About 35,000 Londoners have visited our site in the last 12

:04:46.:04:50.

months. We have effectively created a community health care system that

:04:51.:04:54.

sits outside our national health care system. At the end of last

:04:55.:04:58.

year, the NHS lost a high-profile court case, meaning the drug will be

:04:59.:05:01.

made available on the NHS in the future. In a statement, NHS England

:05:02.:05:04.

said: until PrEP is available on the NHS,

:05:05.:05:22.

Jason and many other gay men will continue to access the drug from

:05:23.:05:24.

sites selling it on the internet. There was major disruption

:05:25.:05:27.

for commuters in south London this morning after a freight train

:05:28.:05:29.

derailed, causing massive delays. Two carriages came off

:05:30.:05:32.

a Southeastern track in Lewisham, causing services to be suspended,

:05:33.:05:34.

cancelled or diverted. Passengers faced tough journeys

:05:35.:05:40.

into work, while thousands continue to face disruption,

:05:41.:05:43.

with warnings that all Plans for a new home for the Museum

:05:44.:05:45.

of London in West Smithfield's disused market have received

:05:46.:05:50.

a multi-million pound boost today. The City of London Corporation

:05:51.:05:53.

pledged to give ?110 million, while the the Mayor of London's

:05:54.:05:57.

office will give 70 million. It puts plans to open the new museum

:05:58.:06:02.

by 2022 back on track, From a forgotten part of Farringdon

:06:03.:06:05.

to London's first 24 hour museum. the people behind the Museum

:06:06.:06:09.

of London have grand ambitions. We'll be able to put on more

:06:10.:06:15.

exhibitions, more collections, bring more things out of our stores,

:06:16.:06:20.

have great programmes, and I want us

:06:21.:06:24.

to be a 24 hour museum. The old market at West Smithfield

:06:25.:06:27.

will become home to the 6 million items currently down the road

:06:28.:06:30.

at the old Museum of London. With a ?70 million slice

:06:31.:06:34.

coming from City Hall, this is the largest cultural

:06:35.:06:37.

investment made by a London mayor. It's a project designed

:06:38.:06:41.

to build legacies. I campaigned saying I wanted to make

:06:42.:06:44.

sure culture was a top priority. I think culture is in the DNA

:06:45.:06:48.

of our city, it's the glue We will have this museum,

:06:49.:06:52.

not just the best of the last we'll go back 400,000 years.

:06:53.:06:57.

It's going to be fantastic. Three years ago, a project to turn

:06:58.:07:01.

the site into shops was blocked despite being backed by the very

:07:02.:07:08.

people who today dipped their hands into their pockets

:07:09.:07:10.

to the tune of ?10 million. It was called in by

:07:11.:07:17.

the Secretary of State, We have to accept that decision

:07:18.:07:19.

and we've now made the best of it by buying the building

:07:20.:07:24.

for the museum. There's been a market

:07:25.:07:25.

here for a thousand years. and that all-important

:07:26.:07:28.

planning application, that this building could last

:07:29.:07:30.

a thousand years more. It was another cold and frosty

:07:31.:07:39.

start this morning, with all that fog as well,

:07:40.:07:46.

freezing fog across the board. You could barely see

:07:47.:07:50.

anything, as you can see It's still a bit misty here and

:07:51.:07:52.

there, but blue sky and sunshine. It really has turned

:07:53.:08:00.

into a lovely day. Yes, it's still cold,

:08:01.:08:02.

but we have plenty of sunshine. There are still one or two

:08:03.:08:04.

spots where the mist and fog is still lingering,

:08:05.:08:09.

but most of it is gradually starting to lift for a bright afternoon,

:08:10.:08:18.

but temperatures are struggling. The Met Office has a yellow weather

:08:19.:08:20.

warning, the first one for fog This is overnight tonight

:08:21.:08:24.

and through to tomorrow morning. Again, it's a bit of

:08:25.:08:27.

a repeat performance The sun sets and the temperature

:08:28.:08:29.

drops down below zero in some spots, And with temperatures as low

:08:30.:08:33.

as they are, that fog could freeze. There are some tricky driving

:08:34.:08:42.

conditions overnight The fog is likely to lift quicker

:08:43.:08:45.

through the course of tomorrow, It looks like a predominantly

:08:46.:08:52.

grey day on the whole. Temperatures are again

:08:53.:08:56.

going to struggle. We're looking at low single

:08:57.:08:58.

figures as a maximum. As we head further through the week,

:08:59.:09:00.

we hang on to a little bit of this cold air,

:09:01.:09:07.

so another cold night Wednesday into Thursday,

:09:08.:09:14.

and a cold day. The breeze starts to pick up

:09:15.:09:16.

as we head through Thursday, Riz will be here with our

:09:17.:09:17.

6:30 evening programme. But for now, from us all,

:09:18.:09:22.

a very good afternoon. TV: He's not your father.

:09:23.:09:44.

WOMAN GASPS so why not pay your TV licence in

:09:45.:09:57.

weekly instalments, too? You might get the impression

:09:58.:10:15.

that history is just a record

:10:16.:10:19.
