Weekend Round-Up, special 'avoiding the obvious' edition
  • Monuments around Britain, including many in London, which commemorate the abolition of slavery are to be given protected status.
  • A man has died in police custody in Brixton.
  • Still in Brixton – police found a man suffering from stab wounds early this morning.
  • And another teenager has died by the knife, this time in Walthamstow.
  • Charlton Athletic are getting involved in the fight against gun and knife crime.
  • An Epping company has been fined £200,000 for operating a really nasty little premium telephone number scam.
  • The mother of a very sick little boy has appealed for Asians to register as bone marrow donors at the carnival this weekend. Carnival? What Carnival?

    Have a good Bank Holiday. Whatever you end up doing.
