Now on BBC One, it's time

for the news where you are.

0:00:000:00:02

Bye for now.

0:00:020:00:02

Welcome to BBC London News.

I'm Victoria Hollins.

0:00:110:00:14

The husband of a British-Iranian

woman imprisoned in Tehran

0:00:140:00:17

is putting pressure

on the Foreign Secretary, Boris

0:00:170:00:19

Johnson, over her release.

0:00:190:00:23

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe

from West Hampstead is serving

0:00:230:00:25

a five-year sentence in Iran

for spying - a charge

0:00:250:00:28

which she denies.

0:00:290:00:30

Today her supporters gathered

to mark her continuing detention,

0:00:300:00:34

including the second

Mother's Day she'll be away from

0:00:340:00:36

her young daughter.

Sarah Harris reports.

0:00:360:00:38

Free Nazanin!

0:00:380:00:39

The children of family and friends

making sure she is not forgotten

0:00:390:00:42

this Mother's Day weekend.

0:00:420:00:46

It's 707 days since

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe,

0:00:460:00:48

a dual citizen, was sent to prison,

accused of trying to overthrow

0:00:480:00:51

the Iranian regime.

0:00:510:00:53

Her husband says it's her daughter

Gabriella she misses most.

0:00:530:00:57

It's been a long, long time

and I don't think we ever thought it

0:00:570:01:00

would last this long.

0:01:000:01:01

And each landmark that comes

is a reminder that she's still away.

0:01:010:01:04

And obviously, you strip it

all back, the thing she's most upset

0:01:040:01:07

about is that she's been away

from Gabriella and not

0:01:070:01:09

watched her grow up.

0:01:090:01:10

We will leave absolutely

no stone unturned.

0:01:100:01:14

This is what the Foreign Secretary

said about trying to get Nazanin

0:01:140:01:18

home ahead of a meeting

with Richard Ratcliffe

0:01:180:01:20

and a visit to Iran to meet

President Hassan Rouhani.

0:01:200:01:24

A play has been written

about what happened.

0:01:240:01:26

Its writer has this

message for Boris Johnson.

0:01:260:01:29

He did so much before Christmas

and something was happening.

0:01:290:01:32

We got really excited

and I was really excited

0:01:320:01:34

about putting an ending

to the story.

0:01:340:01:36

And it all came to nothing.

0:01:360:01:39

So my message to him would be,

please do something, start again,

0:01:390:01:42

try a different way.

Bring her home, bring Nazanin home.

0:01:420:01:46

And bring this mother and her baby

back to be with her family.

0:01:460:01:49

Children today painted stones

to remind the Foreign

0:01:490:01:51

Secretary of his pledge.

0:01:510:01:55

It's an especially difficult

time for the family.

0:01:550:01:57

This weekend is all about

being a mother, isn't it?

0:01:570:02:00

And ever since I've had children,

it's always been a very

0:02:000:02:02

special day for me.

0:02:020:02:05

For Nazanin, this is the second

Mother's Day she's missing out on.

0:02:050:02:08

And it's definitely going to hit

very hard this weekend for her.

0:02:080:02:11

All those days out she's missing

out on with Gabriella.

0:02:110:02:14

Her husband insists Nazanin

is completely innocent of all

0:02:140:02:20

the charges against her,

and it's another milestone with no

0:02:200:02:23

sign of a release date.

0:02:230:02:25

The Foreign Office says

its continuing to work behind

0:02:250:02:27

the scenes to secure her release.

0:02:270:02:28

Her family just want to be able

to tell little Gabriella

0:02:280:02:31

when her mummy is coming home.

0:02:310:02:34

The nephew of the actress Liz Hurley

is recovering in hospital

0:02:380:02:40

after being stabbed

repeatedly during an attack

0:02:400:02:43

in South West London.

0:02:430:02:44

Miles Hurley who's a 21-year-old

model, was attacked

0:02:440:02:46

in Ascalon Street in nine Elms

on Thursday night.

0:02:460:02:51

The actress said it was an appalling

time for her entire family.

0:02:510:02:55

Another man was also hurt.

0:02:550:02:58

Stansted Airport staff joined police

officers as they responded

0:02:580:03:01

to a mock terror attack

at the airport last night.

0:03:010:03:04

The scenario was part of an ongoing

training and exercising programme

0:03:040:03:08

which involved Essex Police

and took place from midnight

0:03:080:03:10

to 3am this morning.

0:03:110:03:12

Stansted is the UK's fourth busiest

airport and more than 26 million

0:03:120:03:14

passengers pass through every year.

0:03:140:03:19

A section of one of the main roads

into central London could remain

0:03:190:03:22

shut for the next six days.

0:03:220:03:24

A burst water main and emergency

repairs has forced the closure

0:03:240:03:27

of a section of the Marylebone Road

Eastbound, between Marylebone High

0:03:270:03:30

Street and Park Crescent.

0:03:300:03:33

Thames Water believe it

will need to remain closed

0:03:330:03:35

until next Friday evening.

0:03:350:03:37

It's causing delays for anyone

trying to head into town

0:03:370:03:40

and is likely to cause problems

for the morning rush hour

0:03:400:03:42

from Monday onwards.

0:03:420:03:46

Let's look at the weather

with Sara Thornton.

0:03:460:03:48

Good evening. It has been unsettled

but miles across London today. A

0:03:530:03:57

similar story for tomorrow as well.

Scenes like these again. A lot of

0:03:570:04:02

cloud. Some breaks here and there.

Showers to come. We're losing the

0:04:020:04:09

thread of those showers for the

main. Dry for much of this evening

0:04:090:04:13

and overnight. Initially quite

clear. We will see some low cloud

0:04:130:04:16

pushing him by first thing tomorrow

morning. A grey and chilly start.

0:04:160:04:23

Temperatures down close to freezing.

Mostly dry at first. Maybe the odd

0:04:230:04:27

shower. It is in the afternoon we

bring the threat of further showers

0:04:270:04:33

from the South. Not a right of a

phone afternoon. Drier interludes

0:04:330:04:39

for the West. Highs of 12 Celsius.

Still unsettled from Monday. Tuesday

0:04:390:04:45

and Wednesday looking like fine

days. Dry with brighter weather and

0:04:450:04:49

still quite mild. Beware, it could

turn colder next

0:04:490:04:53

still quite mild. Beware, it could

turn colder next weekend.

0:04:530:04:53

That's it.

0:04:530:04:54

We're back tomorrow evening.

0:04:540:04:55

There's plenty more on our website

at the usual address.

0:04:550:04:58

Have a lovely weekend.

0:04:580:04:59

Bye for now.
