  • Record breaker Michael Phelps is to participate in the Olympic hand over ceremony.
  • North London is to get a shiny new recycling machine. The Self Build Agency has been working with Havering Council. The result? A bunch of youngsters have actually built their own homes. Which is mighty impressive, actually.
  • Is Harrods secretly feeling the pinch? They’ve signed up a load of musical stars to sing to shoppers….
  • Er, just as Visit London is doing its (albeit strange) thing at London House, central government are busy slashing the budget of its sister agency, VisitBritain. You work it out.
  • The Mayor has backed plans for a permanent memorial in Hyde Park to the millions affected by the slave trade.
  • Action from Tyla'75's Londonist flickr stream. Of course Londonist does this before breakfast every morning.
