Crowds of tourists at Buckingham Palace today got more than they'd bargained for when a man wielding a knife in each hand was tasered by officers outside the gates of the royal residence. Pictures that have been uploaded to YouTube show a man holding a knife to his own throat before police surround him. As two officers approach with taser guns, the man appears to swipe one knife erratically before he falls to the ground. As far as we know, no-one was injured and witnesses say the police handled the situation well. We'll have the full story from the palace on the programme this evening.
Double Olympic gold medallist Mo Farah and his wife Tania have criticised the Government over school sport funding cuts and called on the coalition to protect the legacy of the London Olympic Games. Mrs Farah, who is helping her husband set up the Mo Farah Foundation, told The Observer that the cuts were a "huge shame" and "counterproductive". They are particularly concerned about cuts to sport at grassroots levels, and said more should be done for sport in state schools, particularly at primary level. Mo's amazing talent was famously spotted by his PE teacher Alan Watkinson at Feltham Community College in Hounslow.
When I was driving into work early this morning I passed a huge queue of traffic near Chiswick at about 5:45am - cars with boots crammed full of goodies. Sundays are well known for being the day of car boot sales, although I didn't realise people would be getting ready quite so early! Anyway, should you have been browsing through the bric-a-brac and bargains at a car boot sale in Pimlico today, you may have had a bit of a gory surprise. Items from London Dungeon were being sold off after the famous attraction closed its doors on its London Bridge home. Horror fans needn't worry though as the London Dungeon will be welcoming victims to its new home on the South Bank from March 1st.
We'll have the latest on all of those stories and more at 5:55pm.
Hope to see you then, Faye
