Good afternoon and welcome to BBC London News.
The capital's night tube service is to be extended to part
of the London Overground, with trains running
From December, there'll be a 24 hour service on Fridays and Saturdays
between Dalston Junction and New Cross Gate - via Hoxton,
Here's our Transport Correspondent Tom Edwards.
Shoreditch, one of the areas that will benefit from 24-hour train
One of the things that's kind of grown the south-east and east,
has been the arts community and stuff like that,
and anything that helps that grow is just a good thing.
From December, on Fridays and Saturday nights,
there will be four trains an hour right through the night
The service will extend to Highbury next year.
We have been experiencing traffic jams in the middle of the night.
There is huge traffic congestion in the evenings
It's very important that where possible we do shift people
from car traffic into cleaner public transport services.
I think if you look around the world, many world cities
London, too, has its own night tube service now of course.
They are very important for the night-time economy,
for people who live in London and people who work in London.
According to the mayor, the night tube has already boosted
Now there are also calls for licensing restrictions to be eased.
We still have a climate where we don't have
In some areas people are nervous about granting licences to bars
Rashid has had a stall here for two years.
He thinks better transport will benefit the area.
It makes it more attractive and busier, for sure.
And this will not be the last service to run through the night.
Transport for London says it's already looking to introduce
More than 160 people who witnessed last month's terror attack
on London Bridge and Borough Market, have turned to a support
Eight people died, and dozens of others were injured,
when three men drove a van into pedestrians and then
Mark Castle is the Chief Executive of Victim Support and joins me now.
More than 160 people turning to you for help.
Some people might be quite surprised at how high that number is.
I know it sounds like a large number, but looking at it in the
context of Borough Market, London Bridge, in and around the area that
evening, we believe there will be far more people who might have been
affected in some way by those tragic events, either they witnessed
something or they know somebody involved. Maybe they feel guilt
because they didn't do something they feel they should have done at
the time, so we are trying to encourage them to contact us now.
What sort of support can you offer? We will be able to provide them
either with psychological trauma support, our staff are trained in
that. Give them a sense that what they are experiencing is maybe
normal behaviour. We can also sign post them to specialist support
services. We can also help them understand what support services are
available to them and help them navigate through the system. And
maybe more practical things, if that is what is required. What we will
say this, don't suffer in silence, don't keep it to yourself. Sharing
it really does make a big difference. This sort of early
intervention can help. Do you find people are sometimes reluctant to
seek support if they know others have died or been injured, they
might feel they are not the real victims. But we know how seriously
they can be effected. We know from experience of supporting people from
Tunisia and the Bataclan, it can take time for people to think, I
need to talk to somebody. They might experience sleeplessness,
hypervigilance, flashbacks. We want to tell them that's normal, and we
can also give them a sense through our support if they are going to
require anything that is more in depth. Thank you for joining us.
A woman's died following a fire at a maisonette in east London.
Eyewitnesses reported she had been trying to escape by jumping
from a window at the home in Mile End early this morning.
Three other people were taken to hospital, and around 50

Four EasyJet flights and one BA service were diverted
Now, coffee is one of the world's favourite drinks-
but scientists are warning that- because of climate change-
we could be paying more in future- and it may not taste so good.
So could researchers at Kew Gardens help find a solution?
55 million cups of it are drunk every day in the UK,
but could coffee be under threat because of climate change?
Ethiopian is the birthplace of coffee, but farmers have noticed
If temperatures continue to rise, the amount of coffee produce
But there might be a solution, and it's come from London.
Researchers at Kew Gardens have been mapping the conditions
When they combine that with predictions about climate
change they can find the best places to plant it.
Our studies show if we don't do something about it,
Actually, the potential for the environment
in Ethiopia is almost fourfold for what it presently is.
They could, with enough investment, make four times more
The herbarium at Kew Gardens has over 7 million plant specimens.
This was one of the projects that got us started
Kew have been researching coffee for decades.
Coffee is an immensely important global commodity.
But I think more than that, worldwide, 100 million people
gain their livelihoods from growing coffee - just in the
In a country like Ethiopia it's probably 12 to 15 million people
With so many people relying on it, perhaps this research could be one
less thing keeping the coffee industry awake at night.
Now it's time for the weather- and we can join Wendy Hurrell
Looking rather nice with lots of short sleeves and people enjoying
their picnic. I'm here among the beautiful purple
and green flowers with Henman Hill, or Murray Mount behind me. Also one
or two dark looking clouds, but we haven't had to worry about them too
much. For the rest of this afternoon, it looks like it will be
largely dry across London and the Home Counties. Quite a lot of
moisture in the atmosphere, so it could be one or two showers set off
north of London across Hertfordshire and Essex, but mostly dry today with
sunny spells and feeling increasingly warm and humid in those
sunny spells with temperatures reaching 25 degrees in some parts of
London today. Into the evening and overnight, a mixture of cloud and
clear sky breaking through from time to time. Much less breeze than over
the weekend, temperatures settling at 14 or 15 later in the night. It
will be a bit muggy later in the night. Tomorrow we start with a fair
amount of cloud again but it will break through the afternoon for
sunny spells coming through. Again, not much of a breeze, and
increasingly humid with temperatures reaching 25 or 26 throughout
tomorrow afternoon. That trend for rising temperatures continues into
the middle part of the week so by Wednesday with a fine day of
sunshine we could hit 28 degrees, perhaps even above that. Then there
is the risk we could see heavy showers. That's for the outlook
though, because on Thursday it looks like it could go pot with heavy
showers and I think the Centre Court roof will be on. It looks like it
will freshen up towards the weekend. It's glorious to be back at
Wimbledon. Join us later for the evening
programme at 6:30pm. Have a lovely afternoon and goodbye.
