at Heathrow Airport on suspicion of

preparing terrorist acts. More on

that

0:00:000:00:01

Welcome to BBC London News.

0:00:130:00:14

I'm Victoria Hollins.

0:00:140:00:16

I'm Victoria Hollins.

0:00:160:00:17

As we've been hearing,

the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has

0:00:170:00:20

welcomed Donald Trump's decision NOT

to come to London next month to open

0:00:200:00:23

the new US embassy here.

0:00:230:00:28

In a statement, he said,

it appeared the American President

0:00:280:00:31

"got the message" from Londoners

who "find his policies

0:00:310:00:33

and actions the polar opposite

of our city's values".

0:00:330:00:38

Meanwhile the former London mayor,

now Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson,

0:00:380:00:41

has himself criticised Sadiq Khan.

0:00:410:00:42

Let's get more on this

from our Political

0:00:420:00:44

Correspondent, Karl Mercer.

0:00:440:00:51

Lots of people have lots to say on

this, particularly Boris Johnson.

0:00:510:00:56

This is the top diplomat with some

undiplomatic language. He says we

0:00:560:01:07

will not allow US- UK relations to

be endangered by some puffed up,

0:01:070:01:13

pompous popinjay in City Hall. A

popinjay for the uninitiated are

0:01:130:01:20

some in vain and conceited. No

response to that. Worth remembering

0:01:200:01:25

that Boris Johnson does have four of

his own when dealing with Donald

0:01:250:01:28

Trump. In 2015, Donald Trump said

there were no go areas in London.

0:01:280:01:34

Boris Johnson said the only reason

he would not go to some parts of New

0:01:340:01:39

York was the real risk of meeting

Donald Trump. How times change.

We

0:01:390:01:44

also know that Sadiq Khan has his

own history with Donald Trump.

He

0:01:440:01:51

talks about the ban on some Muslims

going to the United States was he

0:01:510:01:55

called Donald Trump ignorant. He

said that Sadiq Khan was thrown rude

0:01:550:02:00

and he would remember those

statements that feel so went to war

0:02:000:02:03

over the attack on the London Bridge

attacks last year. Sadiq Khan

0:02:030:02:07

welcoming the fact that Donald Trump

is not coming, saying the

0:02:070:02:12

cancellation reinforced London's

values of inclusion and diversity.

0:02:120:02:18

A woman has been arrested

at Heathrow Airport on suspicion

0:02:180:02:20

of preparing terrorist acts.

0:02:200:02:26

Scotland Yard said the 27-year-old

British national had arrived

0:02:260:02:28

on a flight from Ethiopia.

0:02:280:02:29

She was taken to a south

London police station,

0:02:290:02:32

where she remains in police custody.

0:02:320:02:33

For almost a hundred years,

the old Marylebone Town Hall has

0:02:330:02:36

been chosen by some of the biggest

celebrities of the day as the place

0:02:360:02:40

to say their wedding vows.

0:02:400:02:44

But, for the last four years,

the doors have been closed for

0:02:440:02:47

a multi million pound renovation.

0:02:470:02:48

This weekend, Londoners can see

for themselves the transformation

0:02:480:02:50

of one of the most iconic buildings

in the capital.

0:02:500:02:56

It has been the place to get

married for decades.

0:02:560:02:59

But the old Marylebone town hall

is now dressed in its wedding best

0:02:590:03:03

after a £60 million renovation

by Westminster City Council.

0:03:030:03:07

For the head registrar,

it's a moving time for the historic

0:03:070:03:10

building to be back to its best.

0:03:100:03:14

The building was in a desperate

need of a refurbish.

0:03:140:03:20

We always knew that.

0:03:200:03:23

We did the best we could with it.

0:03:230:03:25

Now that I've come back and it's

been done, I came here just before

0:03:250:03:30

Christmas on my own early one

morning, and I just sat

0:03:300:03:32

in one of the rooms.

0:03:330:03:34

I was just so proud

of the transformation.

0:03:340:03:37

NEWSREEL: Trapeze artist

Tony Birelli is getting married

0:03:370:03:40

today to trapeze artist Mimi Eyles

at the town hall.

0:03:400:03:42

Even in the 1930s, the celebrities

of the day wanted their wedding

0:03:420:03:45

photos on the famous steps.

0:03:450:03:53

It ain't half a bit of all right.

0:03:530:03:59

Paul McCartney liked the venue

so much he got hitched here twice -

0:03:590:04:02

once to his first wife,

Linda, and then to his

0:04:020:04:04

present wife, Nancy.

0:04:040:04:06

The designers have kept

all the old features that have made

0:04:060:04:08

the place popular but added

some modern twists.

0:04:080:04:11

The idea is that all

the chandeliers, all the themes

0:04:110:04:13

to the rooms, are supposed

to reflect precious metals

0:04:130:04:15

used in wedding rings.

0:04:150:04:16

So, we have gold,

silver, and rose gold.

0:04:160:04:20

The idea is you can see

the circle shape of it,

0:04:200:04:23

again trying to pull

that theme through.

0:04:230:04:25

The building is full

of the moments that have

0:04:250:04:27

made its history so special.

0:04:270:04:28

Many of them are of

course celebrities.

0:04:280:04:30

But the staff say a wedding day

is a great leveller.

0:04:300:04:33

They are no different

to anybody getting married.

0:04:330:04:36

They are just as nervous.

0:04:360:04:37

They have their family

there, etc, etc.

0:04:370:04:40

So, it is quite gratifying to see

them in that situation actually

0:04:400:04:43

because they aren't any different

than you are doing something really

0:04:430:04:47

special for them, just

as you are for any other couple.

0:04:470:04:54

The old Marylebone town Hall will

open its doors for the first time in

0:04:540:05:00

four years this weekend.

0:05:000:05:03

Addiction treatment centres

are seeing a sharp rise in demand,

0:05:030:05:05

as many drug addicts and alcoholics

try to get back on track

0:05:050:05:08

after the stresses and temptations

of the festive period.

0:05:080:05:10

After decades of drug addiction,

Alan Horton from Reading has been

0:05:100:05:13

clean for five months now.

0:05:130:05:14

But he says he stills needs

the help of support groups,

0:05:140:05:17

experts and mentors.

0:05:170:05:18

And he's taking one day at a time.

0:05:180:05:24

There are other addictions like

chocolate you can do on your own.

0:05:240:05:28

But really strong stuff like alcohol

and drugs, they do actually have to

0:05:280:05:36

have support.

0:05:360:05:38

A lack of football referees

in Surrey has seen some

0:05:380:05:40

Youth Leagues go without officials

in nearly 50% of their fixtures.

0:05:400:05:43

It's prompted the Surrey football

association to appeal for more

0:05:430:05:45

people to sign up and train

as referees before the season ends.

0:05:450:05:48

Sara Orchard has more.

0:05:480:05:58

Welcome to West Hamble Football

Club, where we're here to watch

0:05:580:06:08

Dorking Wanderers FC

Academy in training.

0:06:080:06:09

However, were also keeping

a very close eye on Chloe.

0:06:090:06:14

She is a brand-new referee,

recently trained.

0:06:140:06:17

This

is what we're here to talk

0:06:170:06:18

about because the Surrey FA want

0:06:180:06:20

more referees but they got a bit

of a lack of them at the moment,

0:06:200:06:24

particularly at grassroots

level for that lets speak

0:06:240:06:25

to Tim Lawrence from the Surrey FA.

0:06:250:06:27

Thank you for joining as.

0:06:270:06:28

We're here to watch a session.

0:06:280:06:30

You currently have around 1250

referees but you need more.

0:06:300:06:32

How many more?

0:06:320:06:33

Approximately 400 more every season

for simply because about 250 every

0:06:330:06:36

season just don't register for one

reason or another.

0:06:360:06:38

Now, how hard is it

to become a referee?

0:06:380:06:40

What do you have to do?

0:06:400:06:42

It's fairly easy.

0:06:420:06:43

You contact us, send

us your details.

0:06:430:06:44

We invite you to a free welcome

to referee and evening,

0:06:440:06:47

which is great, where everybody

meets each other.

0:06:470:06:49

We run four different

types of referee courses.

0:06:490:06:56

A lot of people are refereeing,

and think the date you get a lot

0:06:560:06:59

of abuse from the sidelines?

0:06:590:07:01

The FA are doing a lot about that

with respect and various other

0:07:010:07:04

initiatives they have got.

0:07:040:07:05

Refereeing is so enjoyable.

0:07:050:07:06

You can get more out

of it, learn life skills,

0:07:060:07:08

confidence build-up,

various aspects which

0:07:080:07:09

help you for life.

0:07:090:07:13

Thank you so much your time -

we'll be hearing a bit more

0:07:130:07:16

about what is going on with referee

recruitment in Surrey.

0:07:160:07:19

Interestingly, at the moment anyone

who applies to be referee,

0:07:190:07:21

they tend to be aged between 14

and 15 years old.

0:07:210:07:24

That's around 70% of

applicants right now.

0:07:240:07:25

Don't let that put you off.

0:07:250:07:27

All ages are very welcome.

0:07:270:07:28

Now it may be cold outside,

but more than 50 varieties

0:07:280:07:31

of tropical butterflies are to go

on display this weekend

0:07:310:07:33

at RHS Wisley in Surrey.

0:07:330:07:34

They'll be inside a glasshouse

of course, and the different species

0:07:340:07:37

are from places like Central

and South America

0:07:370:07:39

and Southeast Asia.

0:07:390:07:40

Organisers hope the event

will inspire visitors to encourage

0:07:400:07:45

butterflies into their gardens -

as the UK butterfly

0:07:450:07:47

population is in decline.

0:07:470:07:48

Now the weather with

Elizabeth Rizzini.

0:07:480:07:50

Hello.

0:07:500:07:51

Good afternoon.

0:07:510:07:53

A very misty, murky

start to the day.

0:07:530:07:54

Once more, a few spots of drizzle.

0:07:540:08:00

A damp feel to things.

0:08:000:08:01

We're looking at largely similar

conditions, I think,

0:08:010:08:03

as we head through the rest

of the afternoon, particularly

0:08:030:08:06

for central and western areas.

0:08:060:08:07

Still a few spots of rain possible.

0:08:070:08:09

Further east, it could

brighten up somewhat.

0:08:090:08:13

The cloud will tend to thin.

0:08:130:08:14

So, we may well get some

brighter spells here.

0:08:140:08:17

Top temperatures between

six and nine Celsius.

0:08:170:08:18

Through this evening and overnight,

the breeze will pick up.

0:08:180:08:21

It is a southerly wind

and will help to mix

0:08:210:08:23

the air at the touch.

0:08:230:08:27

I don't think we'll be looking

at any mist or fog into tomorrow

0:08:270:08:31

morning but there will be

lots of low cloud around.

0:08:310:08:33

A few spots of rain but many places

staying driver stuck overnight lows,

0:08:330:08:36

a fairly mild five or six Celsius.

0:08:360:08:39

This is tomorrow -

again it is looking pretty similar.

0:08:390:08:41

There will be a few subtle changes.

0:08:410:08:46

We'll probably see some bright

spells form anywhere as we head

0:08:460:08:48

through the afternoon

for is the cloud will tend to them.

0:08:480:08:51

It could even break up.

0:08:510:08:54

Highs between seven and eight

Celsius, temperatures just that

0:08:540:08:56

little bit cooler tomorrow,

as they will be on Sunday.

0:08:560:08:58

Again, some bright,

even sunny spells.

0:08:580:09:00

Always a lot of cloud,

and the wind will pick up again

0:09:000:09:02

as we head into Sunday evening.

0:09:020:09:04

That's because we've got

an approaching weather front

0:09:040:09:06

from the north-west.

0:09:060:09:07

That will be with us on Monday.

0:09:070:09:09

A very wet start to

the new working week.

0:09:090:09:12

It will leave in its wake

some blustery showers,

0:09:120:09:13

showers but also some sunny spells

and some cooler.

0:09:130:09:22

-- cooler air.

0:09:230:09:26

Highs of 7, 8 degrees.

0:09:260:09:27

That's about it from me.

0:09:270:09:28

Asad Ahmad will be here

with our 6:30pm evening programme.

0:09:280:09:31

But for now, from us all,

a very good afternoon.

0:09:310:09:33
