Cameras will be allowed into a forthcoming Banksy Exhibition at the Sotheby's gallery today. The unauthorised collection of over 70 works has been put together by the street artist's former agent.

The exhibition opens to the public next Wednesday. A previous show in Bristol attracted over 100,000 people.

Police patrol canal to stop Canalival festival

Hackney Police are to patrol the area's canals to prevent revellers from taking to the water this weekend.

Last year the unlicensed Canalival event saw hundreds of people fill the local canals with inflatable boats and travel from Gainsborough studios in Hoxton to the Broadway Market in Hackney.

Local residents say the event caused significant damage to the environment, as party goers abandoned their boats and glass bottles into the canal.

This year's event has been officially cancelled but many residents fear this won't stop the festivities.

George Michael has suffered a series of medical problems since 2011.

The singer, 50, has been out of the spotlight since last year, when he fell out of a car on the M1 motorway and was airlifted to hospital with a head injury.

In 2011 he suffered severe pneumonia which left him temporarily in a coma and meant he needed to undergo a tracheotomy in order to breathe.

He has also battled depression and drug addiction.
