  • The Met released confusing and contradictory advice to photographers
  • TfL talked refunds to Oyster pre-pay users affected by strikes
  • A report burst the long-standing myth about immigrants taking council homes
  • Sydenham showed that it had talent An improbable re-design for London Bridge was unveiled Could kitty cats return to theatres? Speaking of the boards, Arcola Theatre's A Lament For Medea came highly recommended
