  • A whole heap of Nelson memorabilia is being auctioned off at Bonhams, including a box made of bits of wood from his original ‘coffin’.
  • As Ramadan is a time of hunger, young Muslims in London have been empathising with the homeless and helping to feed them.
  • Not sure if opera rocks your boat or not? From 5th October onwards you can watch whole operas on the ROH’s funky, upgraded website.
  • The credit crunch isn’t just affecting the already-hard-up: Holland Park has just witnessed the UK’s biggest ever repossession, as an £11m mansion is seized. Ouch.
  • Aww! Cliff was reunited with his Summer Holiday co-stars this weekend, who turned up in a London bus to surprise him at a plaque unveiling ceremony in Elstree.
  • One third of Lambeth’s traffic wardens mysteriously stopped working after immigration and visa checks were instigated in the borough’s traffic department. Hmm. We foresee a ticket refund free-for-all.
  • A young woman receptionist has been knifed to death at an East London college, apparently by her ex-boyfriend.
  • Tooting Bec lido from Ronald Hackston's Londonist flickr stream.
