  • Nelson gets a facelift, including the removal of a generation's-worth of pigeon shit.
  • Channel Tunnel train to be named after Dame Kelly Holmes. Apparently, 'The route's other trains will also be named after Britons famous for speed'. [Insert predictable celebrity drug-taking gag here.]
  • Bidding for the rights to distribute a free afternoon newspaper on the Tube has begun.
  • Fire at former Dickens home.
  • And finally, a rather upsetting story about gravestone health and safety regulations.
