That's all from the BBC News at One,
so it's goodbye from me,
Good afternoon, I'm Asad Ahmad.
So the Chancellor has been
delivering his Budget -
his first since the General
Election - with more eyes
upon him than usual.
In London, people are wondering
what he's going to do
about the pressing issue of building
more homes, and of course, the NHS.
He'll be looking to
revive the Government's
fortunes in London,
where they faired badly in June.
Our political editor,
Tim Donovan, is in Westminster
following what's been said.
In the last few minutes I am hearing
that Grenfell Tower has been
Yeah, it would have been
hard for the Chancellor to ignore
such an event this year. He has said
he is making available £28 million
to deal with some of the mental
health issues that have arisen after
what happened at Grenfell and to
provide community space. No more
detail. It may emerge later. He was
also clear he would not be ruling
out helping local authorities with
safety work on tower blocks,
although as we know, at the moment
very little money has gone out the
door. It has been stressed that is
for essential work. The only other
major announcement is quite
technical but could be important.
London is being allowed to pilot a
way of keeping all the business
rates, all the money levied on
businesses in this capital each
year, keep any increase on that this
year and are divided between the
mayor and the boroughs. That could
go into infrastructure. There was a
brief mention of the infrastructure
project, Crossrail two, but not
quite as much as the mayor would

100% business rates retention in
London next year and continuing to
work with TEFL on the funding and
financing of Crossrail.
The mayor was hoping for action on
Is he going to be happy
today? He has already introduced a
zone here. He will be developing the
idea of tackling high polluting
diesel vehicles. Not much from the
Chancellor is specific to London.
There will be a £220 million
clean-air font that London will be
competing for against other cities.
Taken as a whole so far, I would say
the Budget seems to have suggested
an emphasis on the Midlands, Tyne &
Wear on the north, infrastructure
projects there, rather than the
I know you will spend this afternoon
analysing what has been said. We
will hear from you later. Thanks.
Scientists at the University
of London may have found a drink,
which effectively fights deadly
infections like MRSA and Ecoli -
without the need for antibiotics.
It was discovered by
a farmer in Surrey,
who used the mixture for his cows.
But now the human version
of the drink may become
an alternative for those resistant
to traditional antibiotics.
Helen Mulroy has more.

be when antibiotics don't work. --
My immune system was very
low over 20 weeks last year. I said
to the doctor, I can't do this, not
for another year.
The inefficacy of
antibiotics is an all too common
occurrence which we are being warned
could get worse. With scientists
around the globe looking for
alternatives, one potential option
may have been discovered in an
unlikely place in Surrey.

British Transport Police have
released footage of two
teenagers from East London,
who've been convicted of endangering
the safety of a person,
after they filmed themselves train
surfing at 80 miles an hour.
They stood between carriages
on the train between Brentwood
and Manor Park, and uploaded
the footage to YouTube,
which alerted police.

will be unveiled by the Mayor
of London in a few hours' time.
It charts the history of Muslims
in London, and has documents
going back a hundred years,
showing how not only Whitechapel,
but the rest of London has changed.
Tolu Adeoye is there.

Tottenham Hotspur striker
Harry Kane says his team have
proved the doubters wrong,
by finishing top of one
of the toughest groups
in this season's Champions League.
Spurs beat Borussia Dortmund
in Germany, after already
beating European giants Real Madrid.
The win comes after their
disappointment at the weekend,
when they lost to North
London rivals Arsenal in
the Premier League.
Now let's check on the
weather with Kate.
Good afternoon. We have still got
some mild air for this afternoon.
But a strengthening wind. It may not
feel as mild as the numbers suggest.
The wind is breaking up the cloud.
We have had some lovely sunshine.
This afternoon that is likely to
stay in the South and east. That
strengthening wind, the Met Office
has a yellow weather warning in
force. It is for today and
overnight. The strongest winds
likely to arrive towards the end of
the afternoon and into the evening,
just in time for a rush hour. The
maximum temperature likely to reach
14 Celsius. The breeze may make it
feel cooler. The wind continues to
strengthen this evening. Strong and
gusty. 30 to 40 mph. Potentially
stronger. The rain clearing away as
we head towards dawn. Still mild
despite the wind and rain. It is
still going to be breezy tomorrow
but not as strong. That would chase
away the showers first thing.
Temperatures still reaching 14
Celsius but he will start to notice
it will feel a little bit cooler.
That cooling trend continues into
Friday. Much colder. A chilly start
