  • Update on that fire in Colindale. No reports of any casualties.
  • Super Ken! Looks like our Mayor may soon become more powerful than ever before. Ruth Kelly is set to announce the enhanced package of powers today.
  • And sticking with Ken, he wants to charge drivers of the most gas guzzling cars a whopping 25 pounds a day to drive in the congestion zone.
  • A real gondola in Little Venice? Yep, complete with "gondoliers, garbed in the traditional straw boater and striped shirt". Win a free trip here.
  • A first edition of Ulysses goes under the hammer in London today. Expectations are it will fetch £50,000.
  • And the Animals' War exhibition at the Imperial War Museum, opens tomorrow. Among those celebrated include "Brian, the alsatian, who jumped with the 13 Bn, Parachute Regt, on D-Day and helped them through to the crossing of the Rhine."
