This may sound crass but it can be quite unusual for journalists to be deeply shocked by a story. However I think it's fair to say, many in the profession - and certainly in our newsroom - were taken aback and moved by the death of nurse Jacintha Saldanha. The mum-of-two took the hoax call about the Duchess of Cambridge to the King Edward VII Hospital from Australian radio DJs posing as the Queen and Prince Charles - a prank that has gone tragically wrong with Ms Saldanha's apparent suicide. We'll have the latest reaction from the central London hospital on the programme and there will be much more on this on the ITV News following London Tonight.

Our cameras have been backstage today at Earls Court for The British Military Tournament (formerly known as The Royal Tournament). This year the show celebrates the life and times of the Queen to celebrate her Diamond Jubilee with members of all three armed forces taking part to raise money for military charities. We'll be getting a behind the scenes glimpse of the performing horses, motorbike stunts and military bands.

In case you're not feeling that Christmassy yet, we also have something to get you in the festive mood. The fabulous games makers from the Olympics are being honoured today at a special carol concert in Trafalgar Square. The Mayor has described the eight thousand-strong army of volunteers as "the beating heart of the games" and it's good to see them being recognised for their work.

So, all that plus the latest developments and the sports news coming up at 6pm -hope to see you then!
