  • 29 year old Muhaydin Mire has appeared in court charged with attempted murder after Saturday's knife attack at Leytonstone tube station.
  • A Ripper-style 'mutilated' effigy of the Jack the Ripper Museum's owner was dumped outside the building in a protest on Sunday.
  • A 23 year old man died after being found stabbed in Leadenhall Street on Sunday morning.
  • Over half a million quid's worth of fake goods have been seized from shops in and around the Trocadero.
  • Someone's died after being hit by a train at Raynes Park station.
  • London's suburbs are increasingly just dormitory towns.
  • Monday rush hour wasn't kind to the new road layout at Elephant and Castle.
  • The mayoral election's five months away but spats are flying. Sadiq Khan's team has accused Zac Goldsmith's campaign of a 'coded racist attack' in a leaflet, and Khan himself is accused of exaggerating his contribution to Crossrail.
  • And it looks like the government's putting off a decision about airport expansion until after the mayoral election. Given the Conservative candidate is passionately anti-Heathrow expansion, that's... convenient.
  • Well, that's killed #YouAintNoMuslimBruv.

Goldsmith & Khan
What a pair - I've no real time for either of them, though it does look as if Khan is lying about Crossrail.
