  • The trial of the City lawyer who was stabbed outside Kensal Green underground starts today and already we've learned his attackers used his phone to call their girlfriends.
  • Also on trial today: Three 17-year-olds and a 15-year-old, accused of murdering Zainab Kalokoh during a christening in Peckham. The 33-year-old was shot dead while cradling a baby.
  • Network Rail have pleaded guilty to charges related to the 1999 Ladbroke Grove crash. They now face an unlimited fine.
  • The press are up in arms today over the revelation that the son of Islamic cleric Abu Hamza got a job on London Underground.
  • Durex have had to place warnings in the national press after a batch of counterfeit "extra safe" condoms were sold in the UK. So far they've only been found in London. They can be identified because "have a fruity smell, appear dry, or have dots on".
