Now on BBC One, it's time
for the news where you are.
Bye for now.
Welcome to BBC London News.
I'm Victoria Hollins.
The husband of a British-Iranian
woman imprisoned in Tehran
is putting pressure
on the Foreign Secretary, Boris
Johnson, over her release.
from West Hampstead is serving
a five-year sentence in Iran
for spying - a charge
which she denies.
Today her supporters gathered
to mark her continuing detention,
including the second
Mother's Day she'll be away from
her young daughter.
Sarah Harris reports.
The children of family and friends
making sure she is not forgotten
this Mother's Day weekend.
It's 707 days since
a dual citizen, was sent to prison,
accused of trying to overthrow
the Iranian regime.
Her husband says it's her daughter
Gabriella she misses most.
It's been a long, long time
and I don't think we ever thought it
would last this long.
And each landmark that comes
is a reminder that she's still away.
And obviously, you strip it
all back, the thing she's most upset
about is that she's been away
from Gabriella and not
watched her grow up.
We will leave absolutely
no stone unturned.
This is what the Foreign Secretary
said about trying to get Nazanin
home ahead of a meeting
with Richard Ratcliffe
and a visit to Iran to meet
President Hassan Rouhani.
A play has been written
about what happened.
Its writer has this
message for Boris Johnson.
He did so much before Christmas
and something was happening.
We got really excited
and I was really excited
about putting an ending
to the story.
And it all came to nothing.
So my message to him would be,
please do something, start again,
try a different way.
Bring her home, bring Nazanin home.
And bring this mother and her baby
back to be with her family.
Children today painted stones
to remind the Foreign
Secretary of his pledge.
It's an especially difficult
time for the family.
This weekend is all about
being a mother, isn't it?
And ever since I've had children,
it's always been a very
special day for me.
For Nazanin, this is the second
Mother's Day she's missing out on.
And it's definitely going to hit
very hard this weekend for her.
All those days out she's missing
out on with Gabriella.
Her husband insists Nazanin
is completely innocent of all
the charges against her,
and it's another milestone with no
sign of a release date.
The Foreign Office says
its continuing to work behind
the scenes to secure her release.
Her family just want to be able
to tell little Gabriella
when her mummy is coming home.
The nephew of the actress Liz Hurley
is recovering in hospital
after being stabbed
repeatedly during an attack
in South West London.
Miles Hurley who's a 21-year-old
model, was attacked
in Ascalon Street in nine Elms
on Thursday night.
The actress said it was an appalling
time for her entire family.
Another man was also hurt.
Stansted Airport staff joined police
officers as they responded
to a mock terror attack
at the airport last night.
The scenario was part of an ongoing
training and exercising programme
which involved Essex Police
and took place from midnight
to 3am this morning.
Stansted is the UK's fourth busiest
airport and more than 26 million
passengers pass through every year.
A section of one of the main roads
into central London could remain
shut for the next six days.
A burst water main and emergency
repairs has forced the closure
of a section of the Marylebone Road
Eastbound, between Marylebone High
Street and Park Crescent.
Thames Water believe it
will need to remain closed
until next Friday evening.
It's causing delays for anyone
trying to head into town
and is likely to cause problems
for the morning rush hour
from Monday onwards.
Let's look at the weather
with Sara Thornton.
Good evening. It has been unsettled
but miles across London today. A
similar story for tomorrow as well.
Scenes like these again. A lot of
cloud. Some breaks here and there.
Showers to come. We're losing the
thread of those showers for the
main. Dry for much of this evening
and overnight. Initially quite
clear. We will see some low cloud
pushing him by first thing tomorrow
morning. A grey and chilly start.
Temperatures down close to freezing.
Mostly dry at first. Maybe the odd
shower. It is in the afternoon we
bring the threat of further showers
from the South. Not a right of a
phone afternoon. Drier interludes
for the West. Highs of 12 Celsius.
Still unsettled from Monday. Tuesday
and Wednesday looking like fine
days. Dry with brighter weather and
still quite mild. Beware, it could
turn colder next
still quite mild. Beware, it could
turn colder next weekend.
We're back tomorrow evening.
There's plenty more on our website
at the usual address.
Have a lovely weekend.
Bye for now.
