Hello,

Today's main story is of a family's concern for their son, missing on asailing trip in the South Pacific.

Matthew Wootton, who's from Orpington, set sail from New Zealand on a 70ft schooner with six Americans at theend of May - but nothing's been heard from them in the last three weeks. The are fears the boat ran into difficulties during a storm. We speak toMatthew's father at this very worrying time. Ruth Banks reports.

Next, if you were in Southwark this morning you might just have noticed the600-strong military parade taking place to celebrate Armed Forces day. Thoughtto be the largest of its kind in the borough since the end of the Second WorldWar, the parade will feature four military bands and also honour units or regimentswith close ties to Southwark. Following that, a ceremony of Recognition andCommitment at the Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park with interfaith leaders - allthe more poignant after the recent tragedy in Woolwich. Ria Chatterjeewas there and will have more a local community pulling together.

Sport and after Laura Robson's dramatic turnaround at Wimbledon yesterday,Londoners will be hoping for similar success for Mo Farah and Lewis Hamilton,both competing today. Mo's running in the 5,000 metre race at the DiamondLeague in Birmingham, while Lewis takes pole position at Silverstone for theBritish Grand Prix. If he wins there, it'll be the first time since 2008.

And…It was a mix of culture and sporting fun in Docklands today at TheLondon Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival - the second largest Chinese culturaleven in in the UK. On the river, there was a race - up to 40 teamscompeting. On the riverside, a music festival featuring Chinese and localBritish pop acts and cuisines from across the globe.

All that, and more, at 6:30pm.

Hope you can join us.
