  • Chaos in the city: Brown and bank chiefs hold crisis talks, while sandwich board men get "End Is Nigh" placards out of mothballs
  • 2012 Games to be "cosier", says the Mayor: cosier presumably being a euphemism for "cheaper"
  • In other Olympic news: row rumbles on over anti-doping agency funding, while the main stadium won't be converted to a football ground post-2012. Can anybody spell 'white elephant'?
  • Oyster hack unveiled.
  • Rough sleepers in Westminster at lowest level recorded.
  • Much maligned Staples Corner section of the North Circular to get a multi-million pound spruce-up
  • Concerns about swimming accessibility as map reveals 3 million Londoners live a mile or more from their nearest pool: can't they just walk?
