Hundreds of families in Southwark have spent the night in makeshift shelters after yesterday's discovery of a second world war bomb in Bermondsey.
Two schools were shut down, shelters were set up at a library and leisure centre for people not allowed back to their homes.
Southwark Police has launched a murder investigation following the death of an 18-year-old man.
Officers responded to reports of a stabbing in Pilgrimage Street, SE1 yesterday afternoon. The teenager was pronounced dead at the scene.
The body has yet to be formally identified. However, the next of kin have been informed.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police via 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
A 18 year old has died after being stabbed in the street in Southwark this afternoon.
Emergency services were called to Pilgrimage Street around 2.30pm, but the man died at the scene shortly after.
So sorry to hear of fatal stabbing on Pilgrimage Street this afternoon - knife and violent crime has no place in Southwark #SE1
Police say they are still investigating the incident and no arrests have been made so far.
Southwark Police responded to calls from the public about a 'suspicious object' left next to a Tube station this afternoon, fearing it could be a homemade bomb... only to discover it was a cushion.
The force said on Twitter:
Units have responded to a report of a suspicious object in #SE1. Happily turned out to be an abandoned cushion.
They went on to encourage the public to keep reporting things of this nature, as real bombs might not be easy to spot:
A terrorist wouldn't leave an IED in plain sight with a useful red LED countdown. It'd be disguised as something you wouldn't look twice at
So a cushion abandoned next to a tube station? I'd say this was a good call from the member of the public. If you suspect it: report it
And also left a small warning for anyone taking the matter too lightly...
Re last about cushion. Appreciate there is an amusing side to this, but there is a very serious undertone
Southwark Council is to approve a 20 mph speed limit on nearly every road in the borough, despite objections from the Metropolitan Police.Read the full story ›
The Met objects to a 20mph limit on 33 Southwark roads where the average speed is above 24mph. @itvlondon
Met: introducing speed limits where traffic speeds are too high places an unrealistic expectation to enforce. @itvlondon
Southwark to become the next London borough to impose a 20mph speed limit, despite police objections. @itvlondon
Council workers were left red-faced after misspelling the word 'vehicle' in an electric car parking space. The space, 100 yards from the Transport for London office on Blackfriars Road in Southwark, have been especially marked out for green cars so they can be charged.
Unfortunately, they have been marked out as "electric vechichles only". The error was spotted by Tim Clark who told the Metro: "It was only when I spotted this eye-catching Renault Twizy using it that I noticed the awful typo".
It's the most unlikely place to unwind to have a nice relaxing cup of tea. But despite the hundreds of tourists and relentless flow of traffic, two women dressed up and casually had a brew in the middle of London Bridge on Monday. No one's quite sure why they chose such a unique location.
