The 50 most polluted roads in the UK are all in London. Even number 50 on the list is two and a half times the legal EU level.
This is not a place designed for big nights out. It is a research laboratory created by psychologists at London South Bank University.
Depending which part of London you live in, you may find this hard to stomach.
A two-year-old boy who died of a brain tumour may have been cured if doctors had spotted it, a coroner has ruled.
Max Earley died after a series of blunders meant his brain tumour went undiagnosed for several weeks and ultimately killed him.
An inquest at Westminster Coroner's Court heard that his mother "watched him die" as doctors struggled to diagnose his condition, despite it showing up on a CT scan.
The inquest heard that one doctor incorrectly read the scan, missing the tumour, while other doctors thought the scan had been reviewed by experts at Great Ormond Street Hospital when in fact they never looked at it.
The Care Quality Commission says it's inspectors felt concerned that staff members didn't feel they could safely report concerns without fear of reprisals.
Heatherwood and Wexham Park Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has told the CQC that improvements will be made after the hospital failed to meet eight of the nine standards when reviewed.
– Adrian Hughes, Regional Director of Care Quality Commission in the South
We found there was a clear emphasis on responding to national and local clinical targets but less emphasis on ensuring that overall patient experiences were positive.
Most worrying perhaps is that staff did not always feel they could raise concerns or make suggestions, and that some were reluctant to be identified as having raised concerns for fear of reprisals.
The trust has told us that it will take action to make the improvements required. We will monitor this closely, and we will be returning to inspect the trust.
The Care Quality Commission is calling for an urgent review of care at Wexham Park Hospital in Slough. It's told the Heatherwood and Wexham Park Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust that urgent improvements need to be made to protect patients.
CQC has issued six formal warning notices to the trust following an unannounced inspection at which it failed to meet eight of the nine national standards which were reviewed.
Inspectors found that:
- On the Acute Medical Ward care given to patients was below standard on a number of occasions
- Patient's dignity and privacy was not always respected
- There were poor standards of cleanliness and inadequate infection control in some parts of the hospital.
In London and across Europe, air pollution is killing more than ten times the number of people dying from road traffic accidents.
The known health effects of air pollution have rocketed in recent years with the World Health Organisation classifying outdoor air pollution as carcinogenic to humans in October 2013 as it did smoking in February 1985.
– Simon Birkett, Founder and Director of Clean Air in London
At its simplest, in public health terms, 'invisible' air pollution is where smoking was thirty years ago in terms of the scale and certainty of the risks and the lack of public understanding of them.
The huge variation in death rates for different death categories across boroughs may raise serious questions about inequalities and the competence and culpability of London authorities.
Health campaigners are urging the government to do more to tackle air pollution in the capital as new figures show it is a factor in thousands of deaths.
Clean Air London claims that air pollution is killing more then ten times the number of people who die from road traffic accidents.
Thankfully there is no-one involved in the #Dagenham fire. The warehouse is on an industrial estate so no homes have had to be evacuated.
A woman who is celebrating 25 years of living with a heart and lung transplant has been reunited with some of the staff who looked after her as a teenager.
Tineke Dixon, 41, underwent surgery at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London in November 1988 when she was just 16.
Doctors did not expect her Ms Dixon to live beyond her teenage years after two holes in her heart developed into a rare condition known as Eisenmenger syndrome which caused her lungs to start failing.
At the time of Tineke's operation, just a third of children receiving a lung or heart-lung transport were able to survive up to five years after the operation.
However, Dixon defied the odds and survived the double transplant before going on to study medical physics at the university.
Dr Dixon said she still vividly remembers the "emotional time" and recalled meeting Princess Diana at the specialist hospital in 1988.
