Extra, Extra
  • A leaked memo from Thames Water would seem to suggest that they're going to cut their workforce by 25% over the next four years.
  • In London last year 6.16 million Penalty Charge Notices were handed out for illegal parking, improper use of bus lanes, moving traffic offences and contraventions under the London Lorry Control Scheme.
  • Looks like the planned 200mph North-South rail link might be abandoned as it will be too expensive.
  • London Lite launched today. Anyone seen it yet? Is it as crap as we expect it to be?
  • Jay-Z is to make 'musical history' by being the first hip-hop act to play the Royal Albert Hall (on September 27).
  • And, no, this isn't a mistake. We've moved Extra, Extra to the afternoons so we can cover any of the stories we missed throughout the day (and also so we can compete directly with Sharon Osbourne and Richard & Judy).
