Weekend Round-Up

Here’s what we’ve learned this weekend whilst you’ve all been off at summer weddings:

  • Digger-uppers of roads are to be fined for tardy completion of their work.
  • A man has been arrested following the fatal stabbing of a Croydon teenager on Saturday.
  • Could it be all change for London’s airports? It looks as if BAA is to be cut down to size.
  • Get a preview of this year’s Notting Hill Carnival costumes: they are on show at Ally Pally.
  • Watch out, watch out – there’s a fuel thief about: petrol thefts are on the increase. The unthinking think tank boss now takes a pot at London: let’s face it – the guy just loathes the UK.

    And here’s what we think we might have learned by this time next week:

  • That the Notting Hill Carnival is going to be better and bigger than ever before;
  • That the Notting Hill Carnival is going to be marshalled by more police than ever before;
  • That the baggage handlers at Gatwick and Stansted are not going on strike after all because Londonist will be really, really pissed off if they are.
  • Hare’s last stand from Rooney’s Londonist flickr stream.
