We've seen another twist in the Jimmy Savile saga today. Former pop star Gary Glitter was led away from his central London home this morning by police investigating allegations of sex abuse by Savile. The glam rock singer, whose real name is Paul Gadd, was arrested on suspicion of sexual offences. The 68 year old has spent most of the day being questioned. We'll have the latest from Scotland Yard on this evening's programme.

A major crackdown on ticket touts has got underway at Stamford Bridge today, with the UK's first match day exclusion zone around a football ground. Anyone suspected of touting within half a mile of Chelsea's home will be ordered to leave and not return for 24 hours. Any tout who returns before that deadline, or is caught selling a ticket, will be arrested. The exclusion zone was introduced following complaints from both residents and fans so we've been finding out how the plan has worked out today.

It's impossible not to admire the courage of Margaret Mizen and Grace Idowu - two mothers united in grief following the murders of their sons, Jimmy Mizen and David Idowu. Since July the pair have been touring the capital to educate young people about avoiding violent confrontations. Tonight a concert will take place, staring X Factor's Shane Ward, to mark the end of their 100 day peace campaign. The event also marks the start of Release the Peace - a movement that aims to build a legacy of peace in memory of their sons.

Hope you can join the team and I at 6:35pm for all of the above and more.
