Weekend Round-Up


Here’s what we’ve learned this weekend whilst you’ve been wondering what the weather’s going to throw at us next:

  • In the weekend crime round-up, a man has been shot in the leg near the Walworth Road, whilst a woman was stabbed in Walthamstow.
  • And a waiter was murdered as he tried to break up a fight at a restaurant in Bethnal Green. This is shocking: who hasn't waited at tables?
  • In music news, Mott the Hoople are to reform…
  • …whilst Brixton’s Fridge is to get a facelift….
  • …and Franz Ferdinand have announced that they will do a free lunchtime gig later this month.
  • London’s academies: the backlash begins.
  • Finally, you gotta pity the poor city solicitors whose pay has been slashed to a mere £1m.
