That's all from the BBC News at One
- so it's goodbye from me -
Good afternoon, I'm Asad Ahmad.
A man has died after two vehicles
crashed on the runway at Heathrow.
Another man has been treated
for what was described
as "non-life-threatening" injuries.
A number of flights
have been cancelled,
but the airfield remains open.
For the latest, let's speak
to Chris Rogers who's there.
The details have only just emerged
in the West are also. What we know
from the London Ambulance Service
and the Metropolitan Police is just
after six o'clock this morning, they
were called to the taxiway near
Terminal 5 weather had been a
collision between two airport cars.
One man, a driver, suffered a broken
soldier and was token the hospital
-- broken shoulder. Another man
suffered a cardiac arrest.
Paramedics battled for two hours to
save his life and that continued in
the ambulance but he was pronounced
dead on arrival at the hospital. All
of this witnessed by hundreds of
stranded passengers who had boarded
planes but could not take off. Many
taking social media to explain what
they could see. Bluelight,
ambulances and are medics battling
to save the man's life. Most
passengers, around 25 flights, were
affected and they had to head back
into Terminal 5. Incidents like this
rare. The Metropolitan Police
Commissioner -- collision unit is
investigating and flights are
returning to normal. Sadly, a lot of
colleagues of that man here at work
today are trying to cope with the
loss of their colleague who just
came to work today like any other
Indeed. Thanks very much.
The National Childbirth Trust has
found a quarter of new and expectant
mums who reported mental health
problems didn't get any help,
leading to calls for urgent
action to be taken.
The findings focussed
on an area in Surrey,
where Amanda Akass has been speaking
to a mother, who considered
taking her own life.
Lisa adored her baby son Dylan
when he was born three years ago,
but after the first few months,
she became crippled by anxiety
and believed she wasn't given
the medication she needed.
I was so anxious and so low
that the only way that I felt that
I couldn't be in that pain any more
was to not be here.
I wasn't planning a suicide,
but it felt like it could get
to that point if I wasn't helped.
Emma also feels missed opportunities
led to her developing
I was getting more
and more paranoid.
I was thinking that everyone
was talking about me.
Emma says she was told she'd have
to wait five months for counselling.
When you are really in need
and have to ask for help
and you're not getting
it, it is awful.
At least one in ten women
will experience a mental health
problem during pregnancy
or their baby's first year.
But the East Surrey survey found
more than a quarter of new mums
who told NHS staff they had mental
health problems didn't get any help.
And only 38% said they were asked
about their mental health
by their GPs, despite NHS guidelines
telling family doctors to do so.
The survey was set up by local
campaigner Sally Hogg.
We know that the biggest cause
of death for women in the latter
part of the year after having
a baby is suicide.
Mental health is a killer of women
in the UK, that is how
seriously it needs to be taken.
Local MP Sam Gyimah has now set up
a working group of different NHS
organisations to try
and tackle the issue.
There are lots of mothers
suffering in silence.
Suffering in silence because some
of them don't even know it's
a mental health problem.
They have just had their baby,
they don't know why they don't
love their baby, why
they are having panic attacks.
And these are harrowing tales.
East Surrey Hospitals Trust say
that since the report
was published last May,
there is now much more
A teacher from North London has been
named as one of the top-ten
teachers in the world.
Andria Zafirakou, who teaches Art
at the Alperton Community School
in Wembley, could win a million
dollars and competed
against thousands of hopefuls
from over 150 countries to make it
to the top ten.
She says many children in Brent have
to study while living in overcrowded
and difficult conditions,
but teachers are doing
their best to help.
I feel it's so important to ensure
that when students come
to the school, and their families,
that they feel comfortable
and they feel welcomed.
And when you have a community...
I mean, we have got 35 different
languages in our school.
It is beautifully diverse.
And they are able to feel connected
and they are able to feel
that they want to be there.
It's a very safe place for them.
At the end of the day, it is all
about our children, and every school
teacher will say that. We don't
worry about what is happening, it is
what is happening in the classroom,
how we can support our kids.
Teachers know what is best for their
students and at the end of the day,
it doesn't matter. Policies come and
go and our role is just to make sure
that every child has a great
that every child has
a great experience.
Good luck to Ms Zafirakou.
The winner will be
announced next month.
A new exhibition has
opened at the Fashion
and Textile Museum, in Bermondsey,
and it's all about T-shirts.
The exhibition charts
the history and creativity
of the T-shirt over the years,
which often tell us
something about the wearer too.
Here's Ayshea Buksh.
Often just a simple piece
of clothing, the T-shirt can also be
a canvas for high art
or radical politics.
This new exhibition at the Fashion
and Textile Museum, in Bermondsey,
charts its history.
And as one of the world's
the curator believes London
is the best place to show them off.
London is a creative city,
and many of the T-shirts
that we actually have on display
originated in London.
And I think the London scene -
in terms of graphics,
music, fashion design -
have all had their impact
on the T-shirt, and I think
that's represented here.
More than 200 T-shirts
are on display.
Some are from the personal
collections of fashion designers
Vivienne Westwood and Katharine
Others were donated by collectors
from around the world.
American artist and photographer
Susan Barnett has spent nine years
documenting the T-shirt-wearing
public on both sides
of the Atlantic.
She started her study shortly
after Barack Obama was elected.
Over the years, the message
has changed, and it's
become a lot darker.
There's more anger.
There's more anger at
the Government, anger at each other.
Messages of hate, sadly.
And one of the things that
interests me is to see what happens.
These are time capsules.
So whether you want to show
support for social activism
or your favourite band,
wear your T-shirt with pride.
It may well be a collector's
item in the future.
And that was our correspondent
modelling at the end.
Finally, the half-tonne
World War Two bomb which closed
City Airport this week

Now the weather, with Georgina.
Some brightness and cloud today as
reflected in our pictures. This was
taken into can. This morning. Thank
you for that. And beautiful Sunrise
captured in Cobham, in Surrey, said
thank you for our pictures today.
The next few hours sees wet weather
and the wind strengthening further.
Rain comment from the West, cloud
building. Fairly fragmented for the
most part and it will be persistent
at at times. Temperatures up to
seven, possibly eight Celsius with
the southerly wind. This evening,
the rain does push to the East. We
are left with fairly clear skies for
much of the night. Warm air is
dragged in behind the rain and
temperatures down to four, five
Celsius so much milder than it has
been recently. Saint cloud first
thing and some rain. Otherwise, a
mainly dry and bright day tomorrow
with sunny spells. Less breeze from
the West tomorrow and milder, with
highs of 11 Celsius. We hold onto
the Mall to weather for a number of
days and we will see double figures.
Riz will be here with our early
evening and late news
tonight on BBC One.
Until then, whatever you're
doing this afternoon,
have a very good afternoon.
