London News Roundup: Would You Eat In A Zero Star Hygiene Restaurant?
The Campaign for Wool did this at Savile Row today for Wool Week.
  • A female cyclist has lost a leg after being hit by a lorry on Old Street.
  • Staff on the DLR are voting on whether or not to take industrial action over changes to working practices.
  • 358 London eateries have been given a zero star hygiene rating by inspectors. Ew.
  • In today's unsurprising news: the government may delay a decision on expanding London's airports.
  • Is Uber's app a taxi meter? The High Court is deciding. Though Boris Johnson thinks banning Uber's tech would be "nuts".
  • Zac Goldsmith acknowledges the scale of London's housing crisis. Dave Hill has analysed what he's said about housing so far.
  • City Hall won't toughen up future rules on diesel cars (£).
  • Speaking of diesel fumes, eight out of nine London areas recently surveyed broke EU limits for levels of nitrogen dioxide.
  • Londoners apparently couldn't give a toss about paying 5p for carrier bags. (We feel this may be a central London, self selecting crowd.)
