Weekend Round-Up

Here’s what we’ve learned this weekend whilst you’ve been practising your backhand:

In the weekend’s stabbing round-up:

  • Five youths, including one girl, have now been arrested in connection with the murder of Shakilus Townsend on Friday.
  • A man was stabbed on Putney Heath last night.
  • Two security guards employed by Nike town were stabbed yesterday afternoon as they tried to apprehend shoplifters.
  • Police continue to hold a man in connection with the New Cross murders.
  • And in other news:

  • There’s a right old rumpus about the resignation of deputy mayor Ray Lewis.
  • The police are to offer anti-kerb-crawling courses to offenders. The mind boggles.
  • There were flushed cheeks in every sense of the word when a man had to be cut out of a titanium chastity belt by firemen.
  • Tesco are trying to buy Highams Park.
  • And here’s what we think we will have learned by this time next week:

  • That this year’s summer really does look set to be wetter than last;
  • London may have grown stronger following 7/7, but clearly for some the pain will never go away.
