10 key London seats: Holborn & St Pancras

In the second of our series of 10 constituencies to watch we went to Holborn & St Pancras, where Labour's large lead from 2010 looks unbeatable. But, the battle there brings together two key characters on the capital's political scene.

Half a million litres of water pumped from train tunnel

A spokesman for train operator Thameslink says more than half a million litres of water have been pumped from a rail tunnel between Farringdon and St Pancras stations.

Travellers faced severe disruption this morning cased by flooding in the tunnel after a watermain burst on Friday.

A normal service is expected to run tomorrow.

Stuart Cheshire, Passenger Service Director for Thameslink, said: "After four days of disruption we're pleased to confirm that we will be able to operate to our normal timetable tomorrow.

"This has been incredibly frustrating for everyone and I would like to thank our passengers for their patience as well as railway staff for all their hard work."

Recognise these London landmarks?

Famous London landmarks have have been recreated in minature for a new exhibition - and they are all made entirely out of lego.

Creator Warren Elsmore made St Pancras station piece by piece out of 180,000 bricks. It even includes lego commuters (along with a ghost) and the inside of the Eurostar platform with people queuing up to take the train across the Channel Tunnel.

His minature model of the London 2012 Olympic Park comes with its very own version of Anish Kapoor's famous Orbit statue, along with a lego Aquatics Centre and Water Polo Arena.

The models feature as part of the Brick City exhibition at Newcastle's Centre for Life.
