The Astoria, now bulldozed to make way for Crossrail... hopefully it wasn't for nothing. By roll the dice

  • Transport secretary Phillip Hammond commits to full Crossrail service. Welcome news, but the fact it took him so long is a concern
  • Boris Johnson is to scrap the LDA and transfer its functions to his own office and the GLA
  • Speaking of Boris, he's off to the World Cup to needle Sepp Blatter — but he's left a lot of unhappy football fans back home
  • Latest in the Chelsea Barracks saga: deleted emails and dodgy claims
  • Scuffles break out between Muslim extremists and English Defence League racists in Barking
