A gang leader involved in the supply of drugs and gun violence has been sent back to Jamaica after the Met Police proved he posed a danger to the public. 30-year-old Andre O'Neil Grant from Walthamstow had 10 convictions in the UK.
O'Neill Grant was successfully removed from the UK today after police showed he was taking part in gang related criminal activity.
The mastermind behind the 'liquid bomb plot' - one of the largest terrorist plots ever discovered in Britain - is making a bid to have his conviction overturned on human rights grounds.
Abdulla Ahmed Ali developed a home-made hydrogen peroxide bomb that could be disguised as a soft drink through airport security and assembled on board.
The discovery of his suicide plan in 2006 led to urgent international restrictions on carrying fluids on aircraft.
Ali is taking his case to the European Court of Human Rights to claim his human rights were infringed by publicity, saying the jury would have been prejudiced by coverage of a previous trial.
Justice Secretary Chris Grayling told The Sunday Telegraph: "It is unacceptable to have a situation in which claims to the European Court of Human Rights are actually being used to undermine our justice system."
For the people of Walthamstow L Manze eel, pie and mash shop has always been an institution.
Well now it's officially been recognised as a place of national cultural importance. Established in 1929, the shop has been given Grade 2 listed status because of its beautifully preserved interior. Dan Hewitt went to have a look around.
The shop was given listed status because of its historical interest. The Heritage Minister, Ed Vaizey, says it embodies the standard features of the London eel, pie and mash shop, from the gilt lettering on the shop-front to the white-tiled interior with mirrors, seating booths and marble counters.
A Pie and Mash shop in London's East End has been given official Grade II listed status by the government.
L Manze Eel, Pie and Mash Shop on Walthamstow High Street was originally bought in 1929 when Luigi Manze employed architect Herbert Wright to design it. The Manze family then continued to run the shop until 1970.
A Taoist temple in east London had a surprise visitor during prayers this week when a corn snake slid under the door to join them. The reptile, thought to be an escaped exotic pet, was first seen at the Walthamstow Temple on Wednesday. He was caught and the RSPCA was called.
Animal Collection officer Greg Hagen said: "It was one of the more unusual places I have been to rescue an animal - but snakes can make their way into all kinds of nooks and crannies and obviously saw the gap beneath the door and decided to go for it.
"It is likely that this is an escaped pet and I urge anyone who thinks they may know who the owner is to give us a call. Corn snakes are excellent escape artists.
"It's lucky this one was found as snakes need special environment with a heat gradient in order to survive and so it would not have lasted long in this cold weather. Anyone with any information about this snake should call 0300 123 8018."
