  • One of the great Standard headlines of the year so far: Ravers seize £5 million house. Apparently David Walliams is cowering in his kitchen, afraid to leave the house.
  • 16 and 17-year-olds in full-time education will be able to travel free on London buses and trams from tomorrow.
  • Ken has outlined his vision for the West End: trams on Oxford Street, scrapping the Marble Arch roundabout and transforming the "tacky buildings" at the other end into a convention centre. Wow, a convention centre!
  • Excited about the Nintendo Wii? Then get your diary out. Apparently there's going to be a Nintendo media event somewhere in London on 15 September.
  • Times journalist just can't stand the way footballers and their WAGS have changed the vibe in Cobham so writes frankly patronising article about his woes.
