Weekend Round-Up

Here's what we've learned this weekend whilst you've been in festival mode:

  • Springsteen, McCartney, get switched off in Hyde Park after playing for too long.
  • Heathrow immigration official expresses grave concerns over security vetting.
  • New community venue, the Hackney Wick Fish Island Cultural Centre, opens next to the Olympic park.
  • City Airport gets a whacking great sculpture, the Athena Tower, in its back garden.
  • The post-Olympic East End will apparently be prostitute free: police plan to form a new vice squad.
