And on BBC One, we now join the BBC's news teams where you are.

:00:00.:00:12.

Welcome to BBC London News. I'm Victoria Hollins.

:00:13.:00:15.

Traders say they've lost everything in the fire at Camden Lock Market.

:00:16.:00:23.

As we've been hearing, it took 70 firefighters to get

:00:24.:00:25.

the blaze under control in the early hours of this morning.

:00:26.:00:28.

Sarah Harris is there for us this lunchtime.

:00:29.:00:35.

Millions of visitors come to Camden market every year. This is what some

:00:36.:00:41.

of them would have seen just after midnight last night. The central

:00:42.:00:47.

market Hall, four stories, three of them on fire. That was last night.

:00:48.:00:57.

This is a hub, the centre also of hundreds of small businesses, 30

:00:58.:00:59.

stallholders were based in this market Hall. I spoke to one do stay

:01:00.:01:05.

few minutes after she was taken to what was left of her school by

:01:06.:01:06.

firefighters. They called me at 12

:01:07.:01:09.

o'clock and I was sleeping. I thought it was an emergency call

:01:10.:01:11.

so I took the phone up And she said, "Camden

:01:12.:01:16.

Lock is on fire". How long have you had it?

:01:17.:01:19.

It's a silver jewellery stall. Probably 15 years.

:01:20.:01:22.

15 years. Will you be able

:01:23.:01:26.

to retrieve anything? Everything gone,

:01:27.:01:29.

that is what I saw now. London Fire Brigade reasonably happy

:01:30.:01:45.

with how they have managed to tackle this fire. They were here just after

:01:46.:01:50.

12 o'clock, within two hours, they contained it. Behind me, they are

:01:51.:01:57.

trying to save what stock they can to stallholders. Obviously, there is

:01:58.:02:00.

a lot of flammable material, which is why so many people have lost so

:02:01.:02:06.

much. Most of the market remains open, and an investigation is

:02:07.:02:09.

underway into what caused the fire. Sarah, thank you very much.

:02:10.:02:13.

Zane Gbangbola was just seven when he died in his home.

:02:14.:02:15.

It was during the Chertsey floods, three years ago.

:02:16.:02:18.

An inquest said it was because of petrol pumps

:02:19.:02:20.

being used in the basement to remove floodwater.

:02:21.:02:23.

His parents have always disagreed blaming a landfill site

:02:24.:02:27.

by their home for releasing toxic fumes when it flooded.

:02:28.:02:30.

Now, this programme has seen letters from the council offering

:02:31.:02:33.

to pay others nearby, to protect their homes

:02:34.:02:35.

from the landfill. Alex Bushill reports.

:02:36.:02:39.

As you can see from Zane's pictures, a very beautiful boy.

:02:40.:02:42.

He was always smiling, always having fun.

:02:43.:02:51.

Our life is destroyed as you would expect,

:02:52.:02:53.

For Zane's family, there are still so many questions.

:02:54.:03:04.

It may not look it, but this is a historic landfill site.

:03:05.:03:14.

Now, Zane's parents have always maintained that there their son died

:03:15.:03:16.

as a result of toxic gases released from there when the family home

:03:17.:03:20.

and other properties here in Chertsey were flooded in 2014.

:03:21.:03:22.

But that theory was rejected by an inquest last year,

:03:23.:03:29.

which ruled instead that Zane died from carbon monoxide poisoning

:03:30.:03:32.

from a petrol pump his parents were using in the basement

:03:33.:03:34.

Surrey County Council has written to nearby properties.

:03:35.:03:45.

Specifically replacing any sealed air bricks that might prevent any

:03:46.:03:50.

The letter raises concerns for any properties in proximity to landfill,

:03:51.:03:53.

advising them that there will be migrating landfill gases.

:03:54.:03:55.

That will build up beneath properties.

:03:56.:03:59.

This is essentially what we've been saying all along.

:04:00.:04:03.

The letter came after Zane's inquest.

:04:04.:04:10.

And of course, now it's quite clear that what we've been saying has been

:04:11.:04:14.

In response, Surrey County Council released a statement.

:04:15.:04:23.

And the local District Council also underlined how this

:04:24.:04:36.

was merely a precaution, relating to potential risks

:04:37.:04:40.

from landfill in general, and not specifically this site.

:04:41.:04:43.

It is of no comfort to Zane's father who is now calling

:04:44.:04:46.

for an independent public inquiry for the answers he still seeks.

:04:47.:04:53.

Police investigating an acid attack in Beckton last month

:04:54.:04:56.

Resham Khan and her cousin Jameel Muhktar suffered face

:04:57.:05:03.

and neck injuries when the acid was thrown through their car window

:05:04.:05:06.

24-year-old John Tomlin handed himself in to an East London

:05:07.:05:12.

He's been looking after 2,500 acres for over

:05:13.:05:15.

30 years, but now the Richmond Park gamekeeper is retiring.

:05:16.:05:18.

He's written a book about his time there,

:05:19.:05:22.

calling it the best job in the world.

:05:23.:05:26.

Gareth Furby's been to meet him, and be warned,

:05:27.:05:28.

you may find a few of the images in this report upsetting.

:05:29.:05:33.

After 30 years, John Bartram is saying goodbye to

:05:34.:05:36.

Best job in the world. It's a job that everybody wanted.

:05:37.:05:43.

John Bartram has spent most of his life as gamekeeper in Richmond Park.

:05:44.:05:47.

All 2500 acres of it. And no one knows the place better.

:05:48.:05:50.

Every day, he's checked on the 600 deer and every year searched

:05:51.:06:00.

I have done it sometimes and the baby thinks I'm mum.

:06:01.:06:04.

And I've gone to walk away and he's running behind me.

:06:05.:06:10.

But as well as new life, John has had to deal

:06:11.:06:13.

While we were filming, another call came in.

:06:14.:06:19.

What's that? A dead deer.

:06:20.:06:22.

If you find the sight of dead animals upsetting

:06:23.:06:24.

But for John, this is just part of the job.

:06:25.:06:29.

I don't know what's happened here. Could have been hit by a car.

:06:30.:06:33.

I mean, there's been times when it's been hit by a car

:06:34.:06:37.

still alive but it's in serious trouble.

:06:38.:06:42.

And it needs dealing with. So you might have to shoot it.

:06:43.:06:45.

And as gamekeeper, John was also tasked with the annual cull

:06:46.:06:48.

where for three months of the year selected deer are shot to keep

:06:49.:06:51.

You're going for the worst animal every time.

:06:52.:07:01.

You're looking for one that, you think, in the natural world,

:07:02.:07:03.

And until the policy change, John would prepare venison

:07:04.:07:07.

meat from the cull, for Buckingham Palace

:07:08.:07:09.

They would all get a free haunch, which was a back

:07:10.:07:16.

leg to the first rib. No one gets a free haunch now.

:07:17.:07:19.

Tony Blair stopped it, and the Labour Party.

:07:20.:07:21.

Not even the Queen? No.

:07:22.:07:24.

Some things may have changed, but in many ways, Richmond Park

:07:25.:07:27.

is still the place it was when first established in 1637.

:07:28.:07:32.

And now it's saying farewell to a gamekeeper who gave it

:07:33.:07:34.

the best years of his life. Gareth Furby, BBC London News.

:07:35.:07:40.

Now the weather with Wendy Hurrell at Wimbledon.

:07:41.:07:45.

We are on cloud what at the moment, because today, we have seen

:07:46.:07:57.

thunderstorms path up across Hertfordshire and Essex. It is not

:07:58.:08:00.

out of the question that we will get one here as well. For the rest of

:08:01.:08:05.

this afternoon, for most of us, it will be warm sunshine. As the heat

:08:06.:08:09.

rises, there is the chance of a shower building up. The Met office

:08:10.:08:16.

has a weather warning in place for Kent and Sussex, and Essex

:08:17.:08:19.

especially today, because the showers are developing. Through the

:08:20.:08:24.

Ming, the first part of tonight, one or two heavy thundery showers

:08:25.:08:31.

around. Not quite as muggy as previous night, but temperatures

:08:32.:08:36.

around 15 at the lowest. Tomorrow will have a different feel, not much

:08:37.:08:40.

sunshine, quite leaden skies with outbreaks of rain, it might be stop

:08:41.:08:47.

and start here, and in the afternoon, a huge area of rain is

:08:48.:08:50.

moving in towards the end of the day, and it will be fresher as well.

:08:51.:08:56.

Temperature is 20 or 21. Rain will continue overnight into Wednesday.

:08:57.:09:00.

Big puddles by then. Wednesday afternoon will brighten up and dry

:09:01.:09:03.

out, temperatures around normal for the time of year. The outlook is for

:09:04.:09:10.

a fine day on Thursday, perhaps with a outbreak of rain through the

:09:11.:09:13.

evening, and Friday will be mostly dry as well. Rain for the gardens

:09:14.:09:16.

throughout tomorrow afternoon, that is the shore.

:09:17.:09:21.

Riz Lateef will be here with our 630 evening programme.

:09:22.:09:25.

But for now, from us all, a very good afternoon.

:09:26.:09:42.
