Annual 'vigil' to be held for cyclists killed in London

Symbolic coffins will be laid outside the Transport for London HQ today to mark the 21 people who died whilst cycling in London, since six were killed in just one month in November 2013.

The vigil will be held by campaign group 'Stop Killing Cyclists' who are calling on TfL to spend 10% of its budget on cycling infrastructure by 2020.

The group are inviting people to attend the 'die-in' outside TfL HQ on Blackfriars Road from 5pm to 6.30pm.


Barnes house that used to belong to Duffy collapses during building work

A multi-million pound house in Barnes collapsed this morning as builders were working on it.

Witnesses said the construction workers rushed away as the building came down. No-one is believed to have been hurt.

The property, in The Terrace, used to be owned by the singer Duffy. Another former resident was Ebenezer Morley who is credited with writing the first laws of football in the 1860s.

Richmond Council said its inspectors had been to the site to ensure it is safe.
