Londoners will have the chance to grill Boris Johnson tonight as he descends on Walthamstow for 'People's Question Time'. The twice yearly event allows members of the public to put the Mayor, and London Assembly members, on the spot over the capital's big issues. Topics up for discussion this evening include the economy, housing and transport.
Much of the capital will fall silent later this morning as Londoners come together to mark Armistice Day. The focus for many will be the field of ceramic poppies at the Tower of London, where the final poppy will be planted just before 11 o'clock.
Elsewhere a service of Remembrance will be held at the Cenotaph in Whitehall, while crowds are expected to flock to Trafalgar Square for a special event to honour the fallen soldiers of the First and Second World Wars. Hosted by the Royal British Legion, 'Silence in the Square' will feature musical performances and readings.
The Royal Historic Palaces has released amazing new footage of previously unseen views of the poppies at the Tower of London, using an aerial drone.

Penalty fines paid by banks over the Libor rate rigging scandal will be used to fund a tour of the Tower of London poppies across the UK until 2018.
From next week many of the ceramic poppies will be dismantled before being sent to buyers who have paid £25 each for them.
But part of the installation, the Weeping Willow and the Wave, will remain until the end of the month before being sent on tour.
Chancellor George Osborne said £500,000 of Libor fines would be used "to ensure that people across the country will be able to see this moving tribute over the next four years".
He added: "It's only right that fines from those who have demonstrated the very worse of values should go to support those who have shown the best of British values."
Two key parts of the poppy display at the Tower of London will stay in place until the end of November, giving more people the chance to catch the popular installation.
Historic Royal Palaces said the Weeping Window and Wave sculptures will remain in place for a few weeks after the rest of the poppies start to be taken away on November 12th. It comes as the government announced it will help fund a tour of the two sculptures around the UK, until they reach a final home at the Imperial War Museum in 2018.
The remainder of the 888, 246 poppies which have been bought by members of the public will start to be sent off next week.
A petition to keep the poppies at the Tower of London for another year has so far gained over 25,000 signatures, while public figures including Boris Johnson have also spoken out in favour of keeping the display.
