Full-time score from the Twickenham Stoop
It was always going to be a close game at the Twickenham Stoop between Harlequins and London Irish.

They entered half-time leading 10 - 6.

The Quins opened the scoring in the second half with a penalty, but London Irish earned another 3 points themselves with a superb penalty from the half-way line.

The momentum went the way of London Irish and they drove for the try-line, being held up twice. It was, however, third time lucky and they finally took the lead 16-19.

The Quins, however, showed great determination. A penalty leveled the score and in the dying minutes, they crossed the try line and converted.

Final score Harlequins 26 - London Irish 19.

Sleepy Londoners..
The days are getting shorter and darker, and, it seems already in the capital we're a region in hibernation - who'll stop at nothing to get an extra few zzzzs.

New research highlights the extent to which the onset of winter is already beginning to have a lethargic effect.

Seven out of ten people in London claim they are now finding it difficult to get out of bed in the mornings.

When it comes to getting up women are far worse, with two thirds of women in the Capital admitting they find it hard to get out of bed.

That compares to half of men who admit they find it a struggle.

Grit giveaway in Sutton attracts over 1,600 in its first weekend

More than 1,600 Sutton residents prepared for the predicted cold snap by collecting free grit supplies from Sutton Council last weekend.

Despite temperatures hitting 29 degrees just a week before, the icy temperatures predicted for later this month were clearly on resident’s minds as they headed to three sites across the borough to collect their supplies.

It follows the success of the pioneering scheme last year when more than 10,000 homes were issued with grit – and comes after forecasters predicted that snow could fall in the coming weeks.

Last year, around one bag of grit for every 10 households in the borough was distributed - an average of a bag of grit for every 50m of road. So far 1,671 10kg bags have been handed out – about double the amount claimed during the first week last year.

Residents can collect the free grit over the next two weekends from B&Q in Carshalton Road, Sutton; Woodcote Green Garden Centre and Nurseries, in Woodmansterne Lane and Kimpton Park Way Reuse and Recycling Centre.

People will be able to get 10 per cent off a snow shovel when they collect their grit from B&Q.

Residents are being invited to help their elderly friends and neighbours or people without cars by collecting the free grit on their behalf.

It is available from:

* B&Q in Carshalton Road, Sutton (underground car park) – 10am to 5pm
* Woodcote Green Garden Centre & Nurseries in Woodmansterne Lane – 8.30pm to 5pm on Saturdays, 10am to 5pm on Sundays
* Kimpton Park Way Reuse and Recycling Centre – 10am to 5pm on Saturdays, 10am to 2pm on Sundays (check the webcam to avoid busy times – www.sutton.gov.uk/kimptonwebcam)

Please bring your own bag or sack to collect the grit at Kimpton Park Way. Grit at the other two locations will be ready bagged.

Proof of residency in the London Borough of Sutton is required so people are requested to bring along a council tax bill or a current utility bill.

If you are elderly or disabled and currently receive an assisted bin collection you can arrange for the grit to be delivered to you. Please call 020 8770 5070.

For details on how to use the grit go to www.sutton.gov.uk/gritting
