Hello,

The issue of urban foxes is back on the agenda as news emerges of an attack on a four-week old baby in South-East London. The boy from Bromley was apparently dragged from his cot by the animal who came into his bedroom. The baby was rescued by his mother, but not before damage was done to her son's hand - for which he received treatment at St Thomas's Hospital. It's a shocking incident that has reignited the debate over what should be done to tackle what Mayor Boris Johnson calls 'the growing problem of foxes' in our city. He says it's a 'wake-up call' for borough leaders responsible for pest control. The official line from the RSPCA is that a fox will only attack because they are afraid.

More on what happened and what should be done, Ronke Phillips reports.

Got your hols planned? This week expect to hear more about a multibillion pound investment plan for Heathrow but it's feared passengers could still end up paying more. As well as the investment, bosses are also likely to announce plans to increase what they charge airlines to use the west London airport and that could mean a hike in ticket prices.

Finally, it's the biggest night in British cinema - but will Tottenham singer Adele be walking off with yet ANOTHER award?

Hosted by Stephen Fry, the BAFTAs take place at the Royal Opera House this evening. Bond movie Skyfall's bagged 8 nominations, including Outstanding British Film and Original Music - Adele, of course, provided the theme tune of the same name. Seeing as so much of Skyfall was filmed in the capital, we'd love it to do well! Also, in the running, the big-screen version of the West End's (and the world's!) longest-running musical, 'Les Miserables'. London director Tom Hooper surprisingly didn't get a nod, but his film got 9 including Best Film and Leading Actor for Hugh Jackman. And this year will see special honours go to Islington-born director Sir Alan Parker who gets a British Academy Fellowship.

The likes of George Clooney are expected at the ceremony, so our Sangeeta Kandola is heading down to see just how the stars glam up for a big night out. Not to be missed!

Hope to see you later at 5:55pm.
