A first look at tomorrow's papers coming up on the BBC News Channel.

0:00:010:00:02

That's all from me, stay with us on BBC One -

0:00:020:00:05

it's time for the news where you are.

0:00:050:00:07

Good evening.

0:00:130:00:14

Welcome to BBC London News.

0:00:140:00:15

I'm Sonja Jessup.

0:00:150:00:19

Friends and family of the murdered teenager Quamari Barnes

0:00:190:00:22

have made an emotional appeal today for parents across London to take

0:00:220:00:25

action to try to stop any more young lives being lost.

0:00:250:00:29

They'd gathered outside the 15-year-old's

0:00:290:00:31

school in Kensal Green, where he was stabbed on Monday.

0:00:310:00:35

Helen Mulroy has this report.

0:00:350:00:36

Laying flowers, lighting candles, and with balloons, they came

0:00:360:00:39

to remember Quamari Barnes, the 15-year-old schoolboy fatally

0:00:390:00:41

stabbed as he made his way home from school on Monday.

0:00:410:00:48

Hundreds attended the memorial held in Kensal Green,

0:00:480:00:50

outside the Capital City Academy.

0:00:500:00:56

They paid tribute to a much loved son, grandson, friend and cousin.

0:00:560:00:58

Quamari was a special kid.

0:00:590:01:00

There was more to him.

0:01:000:01:01

He touched a lot of people.

0:01:010:01:07

He was a good boy and he was humble and he loved everybody

0:01:070:01:10

in his family, like me and my aunties.

0:01:100:01:12

It is just so sad for anybody to lose their child like that.

0:01:120:01:15

You send your children to school and you expect them to come home.

0:01:150:01:18

You do not expect them to come home in a body bag.

0:01:180:01:22

The mood was one of sadness and disbelief, however,

0:01:220:01:24

there was also a positive message, a call for action, for a more united

0:01:240:01:28

community and for an end to violence on the streets.

0:01:280:01:32

The community is missing.

0:01:320:01:33

That is what I find.

0:01:330:01:34

We need to build back our community again, no matter where we live.

0:01:340:01:38

We have got to do our part, as parents, as community leaders,

0:01:380:01:41

we have got to start doing more.

0:01:410:01:43

Who is ready to make a change?

0:01:430:01:45

Yes.

0:01:450:01:46

Who wants to make a change?

0:01:460:01:47

Yes.

0:01:470:01:50

Hands up, who is going to make the change for our kids?

0:01:500:01:54

A change Quamari's family hope will become his legacy.

0:01:540:01:57

Helen Mulroy, BBC London News.

0:01:570:02:02

A statue of Princess Diana will be built at Kensington Palace by

0:02:020:02:05

her sons, Prince Harry and the Duke of Cambridge.

0:02:050:02:07

They said,

0:02:070:02:08

20 years after her death, the time was right to recognise

0:02:080:02:11

their mother's positive impact around the world.

0:02:110:02:15

It's expected to be unveiled later this year.

0:02:150:02:16

People living under City Airport's flightpath

0:02:160:02:18

in South and East London say new air traffic control

0:02:180:02:20

technology is making their lives a misery.

0:02:200:02:23

The airport says it was required by law to introduce

0:02:230:02:25

the new navigation system,

0:02:260:02:26

and that it's aimed at reducing the amount of time planes are flying

0:02:260:02:30

above residents' homes.

0:02:300:02:31

But residents say the noise as become unbearable.

0:02:310:02:33

Ayshea Buksh has more.

0:02:330:02:34

At a distance of 16 miles from Heathrow, aircraft noise

0:02:340:02:37

dominates the local environment, registering over 60 decibels.

0:02:370:02:39

This video made by campaigners shows just how noisy living under

0:02:390:02:42

London's flightpath can be.

0:02:420:02:43

Last year, London City Airport introduced new air traffic

0:02:430:02:45

control technology.

0:02:450:02:46

It forced aircraft to follow concentrated routes in order to burn

0:02:460:02:49

less fuel while flying over the capital.

0:02:490:02:51

But in trying to reduce carbon emissions, noise

0:02:510:02:53

pollution over parts of South and East London intensified.

0:02:530:02:59

The airport have made these changes because concentrated flightpaths,

0:02:590:03:02

they argue, possibly correctly, do enable them to fly planes more

0:03:020:03:05

effectively and efficiently.

0:03:050:03:12

We are not against that but we do say that residents'

0:03:120:03:14

concerns have to be taken into consideration as well.

0:03:140:03:19

One area affected by the increase was Leytonstone.

0:03:190:03:21

Author Saci Lloyd has lived in the area for over 12 years.

0:03:210:03:26

On some days, there is an aircraft flying over every 50 seconds.

0:03:260:03:29

I have friends installing triple glazing.

0:03:290:03:37

I know quite a number of people who are considering

0:03:370:03:39

moving out of the area.

0:03:390:03:41

City Airport have said that its aircraft now use a more

0:03:410:03:46

accurate form of navigation, and a new arrival system should mean

0:03:460:03:50

that planes spend less time flying over residential areas such as this.

0:03:500:03:54

The Civil Aviation Authority says it will carry out a review,

0:03:540:03:57

assessing whether the impact and benefits of the airspace change

0:03:570:03:59

are as originally anticipated.

0:03:590:04:04

And with a further expansion of the airport planned,

0:04:040:04:06

and thousands more flights, just how and where they will

0:04:060:04:09

fly is likely to be in many residents' minds.

Time for the weather now, here's Wendy Hurrell.

0:04:170:04:20

Good evening.

0:04:200:04:23

This afternoon's rain will soon clear out of the way.

0:04:230:04:25

It did not start like that, did it?

0:04:250:04:27

Beautiful clear skies over the Thames this morning,

0:04:270:04:30

but the reflection will mostly be of cloudy ones this week,

0:04:300:04:33

although it is going to be milder.

0:04:330:04:34

London starting with a temperature of eight degrees tomorrow,

0:04:340:04:37

but it will be under a lot of mist and murk and low cloud,

0:04:370:04:40

which will stay with us into the afternoon with a patch

0:04:400:04:43

or two of drizzle.

0:04:430:04:44

Some places will get into double figures tomorrow and that will be

0:04:440:04:46

the figure we will get for the rest of the week under fairly

0:04:460:04:50

cloudy skies, though, with spells of rain.

0:04:500:04:51

That's it from us.

0:04:510:04:53

Asad Ahmad will be here tomorrow morning, keeping you updated

0:04:530:04:56

during BBC Breakfast.

0:04:560:04:59

Good
