Drivers soon to pay more in Kensington and Chelsea
Motorists in Kensington and Chelsea could soon have to pay more for parking.

Council bosses claim they need to make up a cash shortfall after the western extension of the congestion charging zone was scrapped at the end of last year.

At the time London Mayor Boris Johnson said the abolition was his gift to Londoners.

But officials say 4 million pounds needs to be made up in lost revenue.

This will be done by increasing pay and display charges by around a pound an hour.

The council has already suffered a 15 million pound cut from its grant this year – and was relying on the extra cash a congestion charge extension would bring.

22 million pounds is already generated by motorists in the borough annually.

Virgin Atlantic refuses to cough up for Heathrow snow debacle
Snippets of the letter Virgin Atlantic sent to BAA Heathrow in which they say they will withhold landing fees following the snow debacle.

"Heathrow's handling of the snow fell well short of what is expected of an international airport. We believe there were numerous shortcomings in the way in which HAL (Heathrow Airport Limited) delt with the disruption.

1. HAL's failure to have a proper contingency - insufficient capacity of equipment, staff and quantity of available materials.

2. HALs failure to communicate information to the airlines and passengers

That mistakes were made by HAL is evident from the fact that the other London airports coped far better.

The failings by HAL had a profound effect on airlines.

We are still quantifying our exact losses, but we estimate them at this stage to be in the region of GBP10m. If HAL had acted properly, the damage and disruption to VAA could have been significantly reduced or avoided altogether.

We understand that BAA has announced an 'independent external inquiry. VAA does have reservations about the approproprianess of the proposed process given that we understand for instance that it will be chaired by one of BAA's own non-executive directors."

Jo Yeates detectives draw on methods used in hunt for Sally Anne Bowman's killer
The Bristol East MP Kerry McCarthy says she supports calls for detectives to carry out DNA testing of all men in the city in a bid to track down Joanna Yeates' killer.

Avon and Somerset Police have used mass screenings in the past - but they haven't indicated if they are considering it in this case.

Ms McCarthy thinks most men would understand and cooperate.

The murder of 18 year old Sally Anne Bowman in Croydon in September 2005, prompted police to ask for all men in the area to provide a DNA sample after bite marks were found on the teenager's body.

Over 3,000 men were screened voluntarily, and after nine months, her killer Mark Dixie was brought to justice.

He was jailed for life with a minimum term of 34 years - one of the longest minimum terms imposed on a single murderer.

Sally's mother Linda has since called for a National DNA register, and says without the DNA samples, Dixie may never have been caught.
