A first look at tomorrow's papers coming up on the BBC News Channel.
That's all from me, stay with us on BBC One -
it's time for the news where you are.
Welcome to BBC London News.
I'm Sonja Jessup.
Friends and family of the murdered teenager Quamari Barnes
have made an emotional appeal today for parents across London to take
action to try to stop any more young lives being lost.
They'd gathered outside the 15-year-old's
school in Kensal Green, where he was stabbed on Monday.
Helen Mulroy has this report.
Laying flowers, lighting candles, and with balloons, they came
to remember Quamari Barnes, the 15-year-old schoolboy fatally
stabbed as he made his way home from school on Monday.
Hundreds attended the memorial held in Kensal Green,
outside the Capital City Academy.
They paid tribute to a much loved son, grandson, friend and cousin.
Quamari was a special kid.
There was more to him.
He touched a lot of people.
He was a good boy and he was humble and he loved everybody
in his family, like me and my aunties.
It is just so sad for anybody to lose their child like that.
You send your children to school and you expect them to come home.
You do not expect them to come home in a body bag.
The mood was one of sadness and disbelief, however,
there was also a positive message, a call for action, for a more united
community and for an end to violence on the streets.
The community is missing.
That is what I find.
We need to build back our community again, no matter where we live.
We have got to do our part, as parents, as community leaders,
we have got to start doing more.
Who is ready to make a change?
Who wants to make a change?
Hands up, who is going to make the change for our kids?
A change Quamari's family hope will become his legacy.

A statue of Princess Diana will be built at Kensington Palace by
her sons, Prince Harry and the Duke of Cambridge.
20 years after her death, the time was right to recognise
their mother's positive impact around the world.
It's expected to be unveiled later this year.
People living under City Airport's flightpath
in South and East London say new air traffic control
technology is making their lives a misery.
The airport says it was required by law to introduce
the new navigation system,
and that it's aimed at reducing the amount of time planes are flying
above residents' homes.
But residents say the noise as become unbearable.
Ayshea Buksh has more.
At a distance of 16 miles from Heathrow, aircraft noise
dominates the local environment, registering over 60 decibels.
This video made by campaigners shows just how noisy living under
London's flightpath can be.
Last year, London City Airport introduced new air traffic
It forced aircraft to follow concentrated routes in order to burn
less fuel while flying over the capital.
But in trying to reduce carbon emissions, noise
pollution over parts of South and East London intensified.
The airport have made these changes because concentrated flightpaths,
they argue, possibly correctly, do enable them to fly planes more
effectively and efficiently.
We are not against that but we do say that residents'
concerns have to be taken into consideration as well.
One area affected by the increase was Leytonstone.
Author Saci Lloyd has lived in the area for over 12 years.
On some days, there is an aircraft flying over every 50 seconds.
I have friends installing triple glazing.
I know quite a number of people who are considering
moving out of the area.
City Airport have said that its aircraft now use a more
accurate form of navigation, and a new arrival system should mean
that planes spend less time flying over residential areas such as this.
The Civil Aviation Authority says it will carry out a review,
assessing whether the impact and benefits of the airspace change
are as originally anticipated.
And with a further expansion of the airport planned,
and thousands more flights, just how and where they will
fly is likely to be in many residents' minds.

Time for the weather now, here's Wendy Hurrell.
This afternoon's rain will soon clear out of the way.
It did not start like that, did it?
Beautiful clear skies over the Thames this morning,
but the reflection will mostly be of cloudy ones this week,
although it is going to be milder.
London starting with a temperature of eight degrees tomorrow,
but it will be under a lot of mist and murk and low cloud,
which will stay with us into the afternoon with a patch
or two of drizzle.
Some places will get into double figures tomorrow and that will be
the figure we will get for the rest of the week under fairly
cloudy skies, though, with spells of rain.
That's it from us.
Asad Ahmad will be here tomorrow morning, keeping you updated
during BBC Breakfast.
