Various tributes are planned to honour those killed - including the singing of French national anthem.

Scotland Yard to examine Paris Metro footage

Scotland Yard says it will examine footage which shows Chelsea fans preventing a black man boarding a Paris Metro train.

We are aware of footage currently on the internet allegedly involving Chelsea fans in Paris. The Metropolitan Police Service takes offences such as this very seriously, no matter where they occur. We will examine the footage with a view to seeing if we can apply for football banning orders, preventing people from travelling from future matches. We will, of course, assist French authorities to identify the people involved and support them in any action they choose to take. At the same time we will be working closely with Chelsea Football Club.

The government made the decision after air pollution levels exceeded safe levels for 5 days in a row in the French capital. French experts say the move - last used in 1997 - does have an impact on improving air quality.

London has been voted the second best city in the world to be a student.

It just missed out to Paris, which took the top spot in the survey by QS Best Student Cities.

It's the second year in a row the French capital has been voted number one.

The top 50 are selected based on their scores in five categories.

The 'student mix' category considers the student community, including the ratio and volume of international students.

The 'employer activity' category looks at which cities are thought by employers to produce the best graduates.

The 'quality of living' category is based on the Mercer Quality of Living Survey and the Global and World Cities index.

The 'affordability' category is based on cost of tuition fees, the Big Mac Index (retail prices), the iPad Index (how much an iPad costs) and the Mercer Cost of Living Index.
