Welcome to BBC London News.

0:00:110:00:14

I'm Sara Orchard.

0:00:140:00:18

London's economy will suffer

from Brexit for at least a decade,

0:00:190:00:22

that's according to research

published today by

0:00:220:00:23

the Mayor of London.

0:00:230:00:25

The analysis suggests the worst

impact will be from a hard Brexit,

0:00:250:00:28

and leaving the single market

and customs union without a deal

0:00:280:00:31

will make the capital

£11 billion poorer by 2030.

0:00:310:00:33

Here's our Political

Editor Tim Donovan.

0:00:330:00:41

This is an expert independent

analysis done by economists,

0:00:410:00:45

not by me, about the impacts

of the various scenarios

0:00:450:00:48

the Government is negotiating.

0:00:480:00:52

And what's clear, in summary,

is the harder the Brexit deal,

0:00:520:00:55

the worse it is for jobs,

the worse it is for investment,

0:00:550:00:58

and the worse it is

for economic output.

0:00:580:01:02

The good news for London, actually,

is because we have a high

0:01:020:01:06

concentration of high-value sectors,

who are able to be resilient

0:01:060:01:09

but also able to bounce back.

0:01:090:01:12

The impact on London

isn't as bad as it is for

0:01:120:01:14

the rest of the country.

0:01:140:01:20

The consequence of

that is, I'm afraid,

0:01:200:01:22

is the inequalities between London

0:01:220:01:23

and the south-east and the rest

of the country widen

0:01:230:01:25

rather than narrow.

0:01:250:01:26

But are you accepting

this is irreversible,

0:01:260:01:28

or are their circumstances

where we could stay in the EU?

0:01:280:01:34

The whole point of democracy

is you can always change your mind.

0:01:340:01:37

There's a scenario hypothetically

speaking that it's possible

0:01:370:01:39

for there to be a second referendum.

0:01:390:01:41

I accept that, of course I do,

but the reality where we are now

0:01:410:01:44

is the Government is negotiating

with the EU.

0:01:440:01:51

What I'm seeking to do

as the Mayor is to get

0:01:510:01:54

the best deal for London,

bearing in mind we are where we are

0:01:540:01:57

- I wish we weren't where we are,

but we are where we are.

0:01:570:02:00

And personally you think that

would be to stay where we are.

0:02:000:02:03

So ultimately in your heart,

you hope we could reverse

0:02:030:02:06

this decision still?

0:02:060:02:07

The report I'm publishing

today is not my report,

0:02:070:02:09

or it's not written by me.

0:02:090:02:10

It's a report I'm publishing

which I have commissioned,

0:02:100:02:12

done by independent experts.

0:02:120:02:13

What I'm seeking to do

is for a lawyer who has relied

0:02:130:02:16

on expert evidence saying

to the Government, "This

0:02:160:02:18

is expert evidence and this

is what I would like you to consider

0:02:180:02:21

when it comes to doing

deal with the EU."

0:02:210:02:24

Because if you get it completely

wrong, if we have an extreme hard

0:02:240:02:27

Brexit, the experts say that has

an impact on jobs, it has an impact

0:02:270:02:30

on investment, it has

an impact on economic output.

0:02:300:02:32

And by the way, we've considered

all the key sectors in London

0:02:320:02:35

and the country from finance

professional services

0:02:350:02:37

to construction, from food

and drink manufacturing

0:02:370:02:39

to science and technology.

0:02:390:02:40

All the key sectors are considered

by this detailed report.

0:02:400:02:49

Our political editor Tim Donovan

there.

0:02:490:02:52

A health care company

which employed a woman

0:02:520:02:54

with a violent past who went

on to nearly kill a 90-year-old

0:02:540:02:57

pensioner in her West London home

says she was given the job

0:02:570:03:00

because of an administrative error.

0:03:000:03:01

Pamela Batten was hit over the head

with a hammer and stabbed

0:03:010:03:04

in the neck for cash by carer

Abosede Adeyinka, who's

0:03:040:03:06

been jailed for 21 years

for attempted murder.

0:03:060:03:08

Her employers, Avant Health Care,

says it had failed to note

0:03:080:03:11

Adeyinka's previous conviction

for assault on her personnel file.

0:03:110:03:13

Mrs Batten's family

are considering legal action.

0:03:130:03:16

A serial sex attacker,

serving seven life sentences,

0:03:160:03:18

is being considered for parole.

0:03:180:03:20

Antoni Imiela became

known as the M25 rapist

0:03:200:03:22

for a string of attacks in Surrey

and around the southeast.

0:03:220:03:26

It's understood any hearing

to decide parole is unlikely to take

0:03:260:03:29

place in the next six months.

0:03:290:03:32

The case follows a parole board

decision last week to free another

0:03:320:03:34

sex attacker, John Warboys.

0:03:350:03:41

International

students generate more

0:03:410:03:43

than four billion pounds

0:03:430:03:44

for London's economy every year,

according to a major new report.

0:03:440:03:47

The Higher Education Policy

Institute found every Londoner

0:03:470:03:48

benefits by around £500

from the financial

0:03:480:03:50

contribution of the students

who come to study in

0:03:500:03:52

the capital every year.

0:03:520:03:53

Marc Ashdown explains.

0:03:530:04:03

For years, the rhetoric surrounding

international students has been

0:04:030:04:09

confusing. They are students who

come to study from the EU or further

0:04:090:04:14

afield, like China, but we're never

quite sure how much they contribute

0:04:140:04:19

to the economy. This is the first

major report of its kind and it

0:04:190:04:23

suggests that every year about

230,000 international students come

0:04:230:04:28

to the UK to study and generate a

net benefit of £20 million a year.

0:04:280:04:35

-- £20 billion. In London we get

55,000 international students coming

0:04:350:04:41

to the capital, they generate for

points at billion pounds every year

0:04:410:04:43

for London's economy -- £4.6

billion.

They spend a lot of money

0:04:430:04:50

on the local economy, if it is on

rent, if it's on food, if it's on

0:04:500:04:57

transport, then there's the knock-on

effect. The university spends the

0:04:570:05:01

income they are getting to employ

people so economies benefit

0:05:010:05:07

incredibly highly from the presence

of international students.

This

0:05:070:05:11

research break things down even

further by constituency and says

0:05:110:05:15

each international student

contributes up to £102,000 per year,

0:05:150:05:20

putting in effect £542 in the pocket

of every single Londoner. The think

0:05:200:05:25

tank behind the research says even

so we are still not doing enough to

0:05:250:05:29

show around the world we are open

for business and says the Government

0:05:290:05:33

has an opportunity in the

forthcoming immigration bill to

0:05:330:05:36

improve things, otherwise there's a

danger they start hampering what is

0:05:360:05:40

clearly a very valuable industry.

0:05:400:05:43

London Luton Airport has submitted

a planning application

0:05:430:05:45

aimed at bringing 3,200

jobs to the area.

0:05:450:05:48

The company says New Century Park,

to the east of the airport, will

0:05:480:05:51

form part of a new enterprise zone.

0:05:510:05:55

A public exhibition of the plans

will be held later this month.

0:05:550:05:58

A new way of helping

adolescents deal with anxiety,

0:05:580:06:00

low mood and depression

is having positive results.

0:06:000:06:04

The University of Reading has

been running a pilot,

0:06:040:06:06

with psychologists giving secondary

school pupils practical therapy

0:06:060:06:08

and coping-strategies to help them

deal with the challenges they face.

0:06:080:06:11

James Ingham reports.

0:06:110:06:21

These sixth form students have all

suffered from low mood, depression

0:06:210:06:26

or anxiety. They found it hard to

cope with pressure at school and in

0:06:260:06:30

their social lives.

Welcome back...

They are receiving therapy on a

0:06:300:06:36

pilot study run by the University of

Redding.

What particular things for

0:06:360:06:41

example in behaviours are good to

break those cycles?

Exercise.

Having

0:06:410:06:48

a good diet.

The idea is that simple

and brief intervention can stop

0:06:480:06:53

mental health problems from

worsening, making these children

0:06:530:06:55

more resilient and better able to

help themselves.

I was always so

0:06:550:07:00

worried about my workload and

worried I wasn't doing well enough,

0:07:000:07:04

I got point where I didn't know why

I was still coming into school. Then

0:07:040:07:09

we were offered these workshops and

they taught us how to deal with

0:07:090:07:14

those feelings and how to deal with

those thoughts and that has really

0:07:140:07:18

helped.

Adolescents face

0:07:180:07:29

increasing pressure in their lives,

exams, social media, bullying, all

0:07:300:07:32

huge issues. But they increasingly

want to talk about them.

We

0:07:320:07:35

specifically want to deal with

anxiety, worry, fear, depression and

0:07:350:07:39

low mood, which are common problems

amongst teenagers.

This pilot is

0:07:390:07:45

running in only a few schools. The

university is hoping to engage the

0:07:450:07:49

Government to ensure it can be

rolled out to more.

0:07:490:07:52

That was

James Ingham reporting.

0:07:520:07:54

Now the weather with

Elizabeth Rizzini.

0:07:540:07:59

Good afternoon, it is staying grey

and drab for the rest of the day.

0:08:030:08:07

This is what we saw yesterday,

plenty of blue sky and sunshine

0:08:070:08:10

around where is today it was a misty

start and we are going to be keeping

0:08:100:08:15

that low cloud too. Possibly some

spots of drizzle, a damp feel to

0:08:150:08:20

things but many places will stay

dry. We are looking at top

0:08:200:08:25

temperatures between six and eight

Celsius. Through this evening and

0:08:250:08:30

overnight some clear spells at times

with fog patches forming. There will

0:08:300:08:36

be missed and murk around, hill fog

over the higher ground, and always

0:08:360:08:41

some spots of rain possible. Not

feeling too chilly tomorrow morning.

0:08:410:08:47

Tomorrow should be a slightly better

day, yes it will be very grey but we

0:08:470:08:53

may see some brighter spells forming

as we head into the afternoon. The

0:08:530:08:58

southerly wind will pick up the

torch. Top temperatures tomorrow of

0:08:580:09:04

around 8 degrees and it's looking

fairly similar over the course of

0:09:040:09:07

the weekend. Probably the greatest

chance for any brightness will be on

0:09:070:09:11

Sunday but watch out for odd

showers. It will be cooler and

0:09:110:09:14

Brighton next week. -- brighter.

0:09:140:09:19

That's about it from me.

0:09:190:09:21

Riz Lateef will be here

with our 6:30 evening programme.

0:09:210:09:23

But for now, from all

the lunch team, we hope

0:09:230:09:25

you have a very good afternoon.

0:09:250:09:27
