A London Firefighter Raps to Recruit
A rapping firefighter is using his lyrical talent to encourage people from all walks of life to join the fire service...

“Follow me my people this is the way, sign your name for fire brigade open days. Oh what a rush, no job can touch, the job that I got this job is too much. We need more brothers and sisters lets go, don’t matter if you’re x or y chromosome”.

This is just one of the lines from London Firefighter, a hip-hop track penned by Stephen-Remell Coleman from Streatham.

Stephen or 'Controversy' as he’s known in the hip hop world - hopes his music will inspire young people and women to consider the career.

He wants youngsters from ethnic minority backgrounds to put something back into their communities and consider joining the London Fire Service:

"As a black man I don’t fit the usual stereotype of a firefighter. I really hope with this new track I can show people there is no stereotype to conform to"

Troops march on Hounslow












More than 500 soldiers home for Christmas from Afghanistan took to the streets today.

The parade was organised to welcome back the Second battalion of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers after their tour as well as to commemorate the seven soldiers who lost their lives.

Before the parade, the regiment was given the freedom of the borough which allowed them to march through the town with fixed bayonets and with colours flying.

The parade began at 11 from London Road and continued along High Street, onto Lampton Road and arriving in Lampton Park.

Darren Graham captured these shots for us.

Wandsworth PCT issues a warning
Funding shortfalls in the NHS in London have forced health bosses in Wandsworth to issue a warning.

The Primary Care Trust says it is likely to reduce the number of planned new clinical centres from ten to six.

The original proposals were developed partly in response to the closure of the Bolingbroke Hospital and would have seen the creation of ten new fully modernised health centres.

The PCT has also confirmed that it is abandoning its plans for a primary care centre at the vacant Putney Hospital - a decade after the hospital closed.

War over troops home coming

Troops returning from war this Christmas won’t be allowed to march on Epsom because they’re ‘not local enough.’

That’s according to Tory Councillor Sean Sullivan.

He’s asked the council to grant The Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment Freedom of the Borough.

It means when they return home they’ll be allowed to march through the streets.

However the Council says it would not be appropriate as the regiment is not based locally.

A decision will be made at a meeting on December 15th.

What are your views on the subject? Please email [email protected] and she'll pass on your thoughts. They might make a difference.

Police hunt dangerous woman
A woman sentenced to life in prison for murdering her lover in Fulham is tonight on the run.

The Duchess of York’s former aide Jane Andrews was convicted of the murder of Tom Cressman in 2001.

She beat the 39 year old over the head with a cricket bat and stabbed him as he slept at their 400 thousand pound home.

Andrews lawyers had claimed he had been about to rape her and she’d committed the crime in self defence.

However she was found guilty by a jury at the Old Bailey by an 11 to 1 majority verdict.

Prosecutors won the case claiming she killed him after he refused to marry her.

Andrews absconded late last night after an outing from East Sutton Park Prison in Kent – an open prison.

New year's resolution of Surrey boys to help vital charity

Two Surrey lads have made their New Year resolution already – ‘to do something positive for Surrey’. The 22 year olds from Walton and Wadebridge will climb Mount Kilimanjaro, in Eastern Africa, the tallest free-standing mountain in the world and raise £2,000 – enough money to help the Surrey Air Ambulance carry out a life saving mission.

Luke Rendell and Dave Smith, both musicians, will leave the UK on January 8th to start their 19,340 feet climb two days later. They’re scheduled to reach the summit on 14th January.

The pair, who have been best friends since primary school, started their training for the epic challenge in late August and have been running, swimming and walking to build stamina and strengthen their leg muscles. Some walks have included carrying a 10kg bag of cement in their backpacks over Boxhill on the North Downs for resistance training.
