On BBC One we now join the BBC's

news teams where you are.

0:00:000:00:00

Welcome to BBC London News.

0:00:130:00:14

I'm Alex Bushill.

0:00:140:00:17

The Mayor has promised he'll

find millions of pounds

0:00:170:00:19

to give to London's youth services

to help tackle growing knife crime.

0:00:190:00:27

Speaking to BBC London this morning,

he said the money would be on top

0:00:270:00:30

of the £15 million extra

he is already giving to the police.

0:00:300:00:33

He also said there would be more use

of the controversial

0:00:330:00:35

tactic - stop and search.

0:00:350:00:37

Here's our political

correspondent, Karl Mercer.

0:00:370:00:38

Expect to see plenty more of this.

0:00:380:00:41

High-visibility policing,

with a highly visible Mayor.

0:00:410:00:43

Both with a knife crime

problem on their hands.

0:00:430:00:48

It's risen more than 20% in London.

0:00:480:00:56

You said when you came

into office that your

0:00:560:00:58

number one priority

was the safety of Londoners.

0:00:580:01:05

Cressida Dick, in her first week

as commissioner, said

0:01:050:01:07

tackling violent crime

was what she would be judged on.

0:01:070:01:10

Do you accept that both

of you at the moment are

0:01:100:01:13

failing?

0:01:130:01:13

I accept knife crime is too high.

0:01:130:01:15

I accept knife crime has been

going up too much across the country

0:01:150:01:18

for the last three years.

0:01:180:01:19

I accept we have got

to do much more.

0:01:190:01:22

How are you?

0:01:220:01:23

How's it going?

0:01:230:01:24

He's handed the Met £15 million more

to tackle the issue.

0:01:240:01:26

What you're going to see is more

police operations across

0:01:260:01:29

London.

0:01:290:01:30

More weapons swoops,

like we are seeing this morning.

0:01:300:01:32

More disruption of people who may be

carrying knives, targeting known

0:01:320:01:35

knife offenders.

0:01:350:01:36

But, yes, an increase

of intelligence led,

0:01:360:01:38

targeted stop and search.

0:01:380:01:39

You know that that is going to be

controversial, don't you?

0:01:390:01:42

And it has been already.

0:01:420:01:43

You have had criticism saying, look,

members of the black

0:01:430:01:46

community, young black men

will say, here we go again.

0:01:460:01:48

We have seen this before.

0:01:490:01:50

We are going to be targeted

and it is going to increase

0:01:500:01:53

community tensions.

0:01:530:01:54

None of us should pretend

that the increased

0:01:540:01:56

use of targeted stop and search

will, by itself, reduce knife crime.

0:01:560:02:02

What I do know is that we have

a comprehensive package.

0:02:020:02:05

When I speak to the

victims of knife crime,

0:02:050:02:08

bereaved families,

communities, they remind me

0:02:080:02:09

that the largest number

of

0:02:090:02:11

victims of knife crimes are black,

Asian, multiethnic Londoners.

0:02:110:02:16

The mayor has blamed Government cuts

for falling police numbers

0:02:160:02:18

but says in the coming weeks

he expects to announce city hall

0:02:180:02:21

money to boost youth

services across the capital.

0:02:210:02:23

What are we talking

about, 20, £30 million?

0:02:230:02:25

Is that the sort of

figure we're looking at?

0:02:250:02:27

I won't speculate what

the figure could be but I am

0:02:270:02:30

hoping to find in the Budget

in the next few weeks

0:02:300:02:33

around £20 million,

which I would like to use for young

0:02:330:02:36

people in London.

0:02:360:02:37

These sort of searches are very

much for the cameras.

0:02:370:02:42

They do, though, highlight

the concern at City Hall

0:02:460:02:48

and Scotland Yard

0:02:490:02:50

of one of their highest

profile problems.

0:02:500:02:52

A man has been charged over

a double murder that

0:02:520:02:54

took place a decade ago.

0:02:540:02:55

Two Colombian nationals were found

with stab wounds at a block

0:02:550:02:58

of flats in Muller Road,

Clapham in June 2007.

0:02:580:03:00

35-year-old Gonzalo Remolina has

been charged with their murders

0:03:000:03:02

and is due to appear before

Westminster magistrates later.

0:03:020:03:06

Police on a raid in Essex have

found a 4ft-long Caiman

0:03:060:03:10

crocodile and 16 snakes

at a house in Westcliff.

0:03:100:03:12

A scorpion was also

discovered at the premises.

0:03:120:03:15

The operation was in connection

with a cannabis factory found

0:03:150:03:17

in Basildon two years ago.

0:03:170:03:18

Lots of reptiles

were also found there.

0:03:180:03:28

Now, robot skies and surveillance

drones all across the city?

0:03:290:03:31

That's just one vision

of the capital that's

0:03:310:03:33

outlined in a new exhibition

at the Museum of London.

0:03:330:03:35

Wendy Hurrell took a look

at what the future might hold.

0:03:350:03:38

At the Museum of London,

after delving into the capital's

0:03:380:03:48

past, the present is a nice sit

down and a cup of tea.

0:03:480:03:51

Over year, this is what London might

be like just a few decades from now.

0:03:510:03:54

Fantastical futures

by artists, designers,

0:03:540:03:56

architects and film-makers.

0:03:560:04:01

In The Robot Skies creates a world

controlled by surveillance drones.

0:04:010:04:05

The film itself was shot using them.

0:04:050:04:11

The first film, as far as we know,

to be entirely shot using

0:04:110:04:15

autonomous drone systems.

0:04:150:04:15

And that was important for us

because it was really about trying

0:04:150:04:20

to see the city through the eyes

of a drone network, which is

0:04:200:04:23

monitoring and controlling it.

0:04:230:04:28

Two young people are confined

in opposite towers and fall in love,

0:04:280:04:33

communicating by a drone

that they hack.

0:04:330:04:35

It was filmed on the Somerset

estate in Battersea.

0:04:350:04:40

It is brutalist, a lot of hard

surfaces, very confronting

0:04:400:04:43

and uncompromising and particularly

we chose this one because there

0:04:430:04:47

are two extraordinary,

imposing towers that became

0:04:470:04:48

the perfect setting

for our narrative.

0:04:480:04:50

And we had one of our characters

in one tower and another

0:04:500:04:53

in the other tower.

0:04:530:04:58

As we were able to get our drone

to sort of dance back

0:04:580:05:01

and forth between them.

0:05:010:05:03

So, a familiar setting and story.

0:05:030:05:06

And this exhibition

takes what we now know,

0:05:060:05:07

what we know from history,

and uses them to explore

0:05:070:05:10

what happens next.

0:05:100:05:12

No-one can predict the future,

so the best way to do

0:05:120:05:20

that is to exaggerate the reality

that we live in now.

0:05:200:05:23

Stretch it and then

project it in the future.

0:05:230:05:25

So, this way, we can take

a hypothetical scenario and we can

0:05:250:05:28

look into these issues.

0:05:280:05:29

It is a future that

doesn't seem so far away.

0:05:290:05:31

A lot of the technology

is already here.

0:05:310:05:33

They are going to be a really

important part of our lives.

0:05:330:05:36

They are soon going to be

as ubiquitous as pigeons

0:05:360:05:38

in a city like this one.

0:05:380:05:40

And that is something that we need

to be talking about.

0:05:400:05:42

London Visions, at the Museum

of London, is on until April.

0:05:420:05:47

It suggests that the future's not

us all moving to Mars,

0:05:470:05:49

it is a much more grounded

reflection on life.

0:05:490:05:55

Now to football, and lots

of our teams are in FA Cup

0:05:550:05:58

action this weekend.

0:05:580:05:59

Tottenham travel to Newport,

who are in League Two.

0:05:590:06:02

So, could Spurs go all the way

this season and win?

0:06:020:06:05

Emma Jones asked one

of the players at a project

0:06:050:06:07

which encourages people to get fit.

0:06:070:06:11

An exercise class

with a special guest.

0:06:110:06:14

This is tournament fielder

Erik Lamela visiting a Shape Up For

0:06:140:06:17

Spurs class.

0:06:170:06:22

It's a programme set up by the club

to help local people

0:06:220:06:24

learn about being fit and healthy.

0:06:250:06:29

Fashion designer Jackie Dublin says

it hasn't just changed her

0:06:290:06:31

appearance but whole lifestyle.

0:06:320:06:33

I feel great.

0:06:330:06:35

And what is happening now is that

everybody's looking at

0:06:350:06:38

me and they can see the difference.

0:06:380:06:40

They are saying,

Jackie, you look great.

0:06:400:06:41

And I am saying, and I feel great!

0:06:410:06:43

And, you know, the feeling,

you can't pay for that.

0:06:430:06:46

It is such an amazing

feeling, to feel healthy

0:06:460:06:48

and strong.

0:06:480:06:49

And if Erik appears a little

reluctant to take part, it

0:06:490:06:51

might be because he only recently

returned from a hip injury.

0:06:510:06:55

An injury which meant he didn't

play for over a year.

0:06:550:06:59

It was so hard to be out,

but it is football.

0:06:590:07:03

That happens.

0:07:030:07:07

I got the injury and I need

to respect the times after the

0:07:070:07:10

surgery.

0:07:100:07:13

And now, I am back

again and I'm enjoying.

0:07:130:07:16

Next up for Spurs, a trip

to Newport in the FA Cup.

0:07:160:07:20

The League Two side have even added

a temporary stand for the extra

0:07:200:07:23

supporters.

0:07:230:07:28

Excitement for them but also perhaps

for a Tottenham team who

0:07:280:07:30

might believe they can win

the cup this season.

0:07:300:07:36

We need to go forward

in all the competitions and try to

0:07:360:07:38

win one trophy this season.

0:07:380:07:40

Because I think we

have a very good squad

0:07:400:07:44

and I believe in this team, that

we're going to achieve something.

0:07:440:07:47

Tottenham are currently using

Wembley as their temporary home.

0:07:470:07:51

Could they be there in May

to celebrate FA Cup success?

0:07:510:07:59

Now the weather,

with Elizabeth Ritzini.

0:07:590:08:01

Good afternoon. It was a very chilly

start of the day with some early

0:08:050:08:09

mist patches around and some light

showers as well. Plenty of cloud. It

0:08:090:08:14

is starting to thin and break and we

should see more bright and sunny

0:08:140:08:18

patches emerging through the

afternoon. Temperature is not quite

0:08:180:08:21

as high as yesterday but still quite

decent. We might see eight or nine

0:08:210:08:26

Celsius later in central London.

Overnight tonight, it will stay dry.

0:08:260:08:31

Lots of clear skies around and maybe

some mist and fog forming as we head

0:08:310:08:35

into tomorrow morning as the

temperature drops away. Temperatures

0:08:350:08:38

could be low enough for a touch of

rural frost, otherwise holding to

0:08:380:08:44

between five and six Celsius into

tomorrow morning. That mist and fog

0:08:440:08:47

will lift into low cloud gradually.

It is predominantly cloudy tomorrow.

0:08:470:08:52

The weather front coming through

will be mostly patchy drizzle. The

0:08:520:09:00

wind will pick up and it will be 10

Celsius by the time we get to the

0:09:000:09:02

end of the day. Very mild night on

Saturday into Sunday. On Sunday,

0:09:020:09:07

still quite windy and grey but it

should we try our mostly dry. We

0:09:070:09:11

will see brighter spells perhaps

form into the afternoon.

0:09:110:09:13

Temperatures all the way up to 13

Celsius. Possibly some rain around

0:09:130:09:19

on Monday, staying mild but cooler

and more settled for much of the

0:09:190:09:22

rest of the week.

0:09:220:09:23

That's about it from me.

0:09:230:09:24

Riz will be here with our

6.30 evening programme.

0:09:240:09:28

But for now, from us all,

a very good afternoon.
