Welcome to BBC London News.

The Deputy Chief Constable
of Essex Police has been found
guilty of misconduct and bullying.
A five-day hearing was told
Matthew Horne threw a stress
ball at a colleague
and was verbally abusive.
Our reporter Ayshea
Buksh is with me now.
Ayshea, what happened
at the tribunal?
Well, this is news just in from
Chelmsford Civic Centre. Mr Horne
worked on police operations
including the Leveson Inquiry and
the royal wedding between Prince
William and the Duchess of Cambridge
but this refers to his time at Essex
police when he was deputy chief of.
There were three allegations
levelled against him, one of them
refers to an incident back in June
2015 when he visited the control
room at Essex police and was
apparently disappointed and
frustrated at the work that was
being done, he is said to have
walked out, sworn at a colleague who
was in charge of the control room,
and another time he was found to
have pushed and thrown a stress ball
at a different colleague, one-time
causing the opposite of fall
backwards onto a desk, and the
stress ball but he referred to that
he threw left a red mark on that
colleague. His behaviour was found
to have breached the standards of
professional behaviour in the areas
of authority, respect and courtesy.
Mr Horne did say during the hearing
that he regarded some of those
conversations as not significant and
he was more focused on what's needed
to be done to help the public rather
than the way he was behaving towards
the other members of staff. Essex
police gave the statement and they
said, we note the findings of the
panel and a further hearing will be
held in public in due course in
order that the appropriate authority
can decide on what sanction will be
Thank you very much for the update.

A family's bid for a fresh inquest
into the death of their son,

Eight years ago, gymnast
Reiss Beckford was one of the stars
of the England Commonwealth Games
He won three silver medals.
Well, fast-forward to 2018
and the athlete from Essex is hoping
to make history by going to this
year's Commonwealth Games
but this time representing Jamaica.
Jonathan Park has the story.
What time do you start work today?
In this household they're
ticking off the breakfasts
until the Commonwealth games.
Reiss is blazing a trail
for Jamaica and his loved ones
will watch his every move.
Hopefully my girlfriend
Olivia and mum and dad
are going to come out to watch.
Welcome to Reiss Beckford's second
home, this athletics
club in Basildon.
First up, a morning run,
a challenge for Reiss and co.
He was just seven when he joined
the club, going on to
for Great Britain and England.
But now he's Jamaican gymnast who's
going the extra mile.
On a fast day, we do it
in about seven minutes,
lads, would you say?
About seven minutes on a fast day.
Around seven, eight minutes
is our average but, yeah,
we've found that this really does
help us and it's our little secret
that we do that most
other gyms don't do.
OK, guys, right, so, as we know,
tomorrow means routines
for everybody, all right?
Although not officially announced
yet, you're looking at Jamaica's
gymnastics team for the Commonwealth
Just Reiss, who will
become the first male
to compete for the country
at the so-called friendly games.
How many times have
you done that routine?
Quite a few times, we practice,
like I say, everything in big
repetitions so that when it comes
to the big day you're confident
in what you're doing.
And Reiss has always
had bags of ability.
Here he is eight years ago in Delhi
at the Commonwealth Games.
He returned home with
three silver medals.
But this time he's doing
it all by himself,
without any Lottery funding.
It shows how serious
he is and how committed he is.
The club are helping him,
we've given him a role in the club,
he's actually coaching the women,
so he's developing as a young
coach while representing
Jamaica as a gymnast.
It's doubtful there'll be
a harder-working athlete
in Jamaica's team come
the Commonwealth Games in April.
Good luck to him.
Now, in the largest study
of it's kind, children
across the UK have been asked
what they would like to
do when they grow up.
These are just some of their work.
Tim Muffett has been
to one school in Wembley
to speak to children there.
Drawing their future.
These pupils at Barham Primary
School in Wembley were amongst
13,000 in the UK who took part
in a remarkable survey.
We wanted kids to draw
their future aspirations.
Who they want to become.
We wanted to understand what's
going on in their heads,
their ideas about the future.
A Royal Navy police officer.
Because I like books.
Across the UK, the most popular
dream job amongst 7-11-year-olds
was a sports man or woman.
More than a fifth of children drew
them, followed by teacher,
then a vet, then a job in social
media or gaming.
I want to be a game designer
because it seems like fun and I play
a lot of games and I want to see
how they're made.
Some might say this is very
young to be thinking
about a future career.
What do you think?
I think they're never too young,
it's never too early.
Primary school is the right
time for children to be
forming good habits.
They need a game plan.
They need to be able to select the
Rhianne's picture really
stands out to me, simply
because if there were 100
professions that you would say
that Rhianne would pick,
you would never think
she would select being in the navy.
There are going to do jobs that we
haven't even thought about, not even
in our knowledge now. I want them to
have the skills, knowledge, the
can-do attitude so they will be able
to apply themselves to the new
professions that will be coming
Good advice there.
Let's take a look at the weather -
here's Georgina Burnett.
If you have been entering sunshine
today, it will be their best on
offer for the next few days, a lot
of the blue stuff turning up in our
Weather Watcher pictures, this was
taken by Carrie in Wembley, thank
you for that, and to all our Weather
Watchers for your pictures from
today, keep them coming in. There
will be sunny spells this afternoon,
a bit of stopping cloud around,
though, one or two showers but many
others having a dry end of the day,
a bit on the breezy side, westerly
wind and chilly with highs of five
or six Celsius at best. Those
showers fizzle out through this
evening, and largely dry and clear
period but cloud quickly builds
ahead of the frontal system bringing
in some rain in the West,
temperatures down to one or two
degrees Celsius. That is how we
start the weekend, the rain
gradually clearing as we had through
the morning so there should be a
drier end to the day but whether we
will see brightness remains to be
seen, I think the cloud will stay
put for many. Temperatures get into
about four Celsius is still pretty
chilly. There is change on the way,
wet and windy weather on Sunday,
bringing with it some milder air, so
we are seeing single figures for a
couple of days but although the
weather is staying quite unsettled
for the start of the week, we start
to see some double figures as well.
So, wet and windy weather for a good
few days but by the end of the week
the high pressure is starting to
build and that is one thing should
start to settle down.
That's about it from me.
But for now, from us all,
a very good afternoon.
