Pay and display parking machines disappearing in Croydon pilot scheme

A pilot scheme to cut the number of thefts from pay and display parking machines is to start on Monday in Croydon.

Fifteen roads around the Addiscombe and Park Hill area will see all but one machine in each road covered and taken out of use.

Instead, drivers can use RingGo which was introduced last September.

It allows motorists to pay with a credit or debit card using their phone.

The Council is keen to increase the use of cashless payment and reduce the incidence of damage and thefts from the machines.

School in Fulham's admissions policy under criticism
It’s been revealed a top Catholic state school based in Fulham ranked the timelines of baby’s baptisms as part of its admissions policy.

The Office of School Adjudicator found the London Oratory School wanted proof a child of six months had been baptised.

The school’s been told aspects of its policy don’t conform, and need to be revised within two months.

But the school’s hit back, saying it no longer uses that policy to deal with over-subscription, calling the OSA ‘not fit for purpose’.

A former vicar’s been jailed for 7 years and two months for indecent assaults on three boys under 14 years old - nearly 50 years ago.

He worked for the Church of England in West London for many years, but retired to the Isle of Wight more than 15 years ago.

Two other male victims were assaulted at St Martin’s Church in West Drayton.

Police say other boys may have been abused and would ask any victims to contact them by calling 101.

Thames Water team still in New Malden this morning

UPDATE: The High Street has re-opened as of 9.20am



Thames Water engineers were at the scene in New Malden overnight after a water main burst outside the station last night.

London Fire Brigade was also there for seven hours.

Deputy Assistant Commissioner Tom George said:

As water levels were rising, firefighters worked tirelessly to reduce the impact on the community by positioning sandbags and assisting residents and business owners.

Working in partnership with other agencies and utility companies we were able to deal well with the burst main and return to normality as quickly as possible.

The Brigade was called at 6.49 and the incident was over for us at 3am. Fire crews from New Malden and surrounding stations attended the scene.


At its worst, water was waist deep under the bridge.



A spokesman said the team will be able to answer customers’ questions.

Kingston's new MP James Berry has been helping with the clear up. It's thought 10 properties were flooded.



Jackie's Lucy Mayer is also there.

A millionaire from Fulham has taken his son to court after he claims money he lent him for home renovations wasn’t paid back.

George Staussi says he lent his son Arthur £272,000 to carry out an extension at his home in Chessington.

He says he hasn’t received anything back.

But his son’s defence is not yet available from the court, and the contents of the writ have yet to be tested in evidence before a judge.

Vets in Croydon will be helping a roly-poly Pug to battle the bulge in a national pet slimming competition, Pet Fit Club.


3 year old Rolo Panolo was adopted in December weighing 2st 5lb, but he needs to lose an entire stone to reach his ideal size.

Rolo’s new owner, Lydia Ernstsons, from Epsom, immediately put him on a diet. She says When we first got him he couldn’t run and could only walk for a few minutes before he got too tired, then he’d just collapse on the floor and I would have to carry him home.

Rolo also needs to have an operation on his eye, but until he loses weight the risk of going under the anaesthetic is too high.

He will be fighting the flab with 16 other supersized pets, including Hooch the Rottweiler, who at nearly 13 stone (82kg) is the heaviest pet ever to take part in the annual competition.

Also taking on the six month weight loss challenge are curvy cat Guy who weighs almost 2 stone (10.8kg) and is one of the fattest cats ever to take part, plus a flabby rat named Spider.

A Kingston Police Officer has saved the life of a man who was preparing to jump off a bridge onto the A3 at Malden Junction


Newly recruited PC Aimee Cobb was on routine patrol last week when she received a call from the control room stating there was a man standing on the top of a bridge over the A3 and it looked like he was going to jump.

When she arrived on scene she noticed a man on the wrong side of the barriers, around 30 meters above the busy dual carriageway.

Recognising that if he did jump, he would be unlikely to survive, PC Cobb approached the man, clearly agitated and distressed. He told the officer stay away.

PC Cobb remained calm and engaged him in conversation and started to slowly build up a rapport.

While this was happening other officers from Kingston Police stopped the traffic on the A3 and declared the situation as a critical incident.

Over an hour and a half passed and PC Cobb continued to speak with the man on her own, she has received no specific training for this role and was acting far beyond what is expected of her.

In building his trust, PC Cobb was finally able to persuade the man to come off the ledge of the bridge and he then joined PC Cobb on the pavement.

He is now receiving appropriate medical care.

Speaking to us this afternoon, Aimee explains how it felt to save a man's life.

Every bin is a win according to the Dogs Trust
The charity has once again teamed up with Keep Britain Tidy to promote this year’s Big Scoop.

The aim of the campaign is to get dog walkers to make sure they bin their pet’s waste.

There are 8 million dogs in the UK, and over 1,000 tonnes of dog mess is produced a day.

Some walkers on Wimbledon Common have complained in the past about the lack of bins, meaning some dog waste is bagged and left hanging on trees.

But, Lee Paris with the trust, says a responsible dog owner will do the right thing.



Unsuspecting walkers were caught out on Wimbledon Common by a flash mob.

800 years on - Runnymede celebrates
Celebrations are taking place in Runnymede today - the place where the charter was sealed 800 years ago tomorrow.
Scientists say they've discovered who wrote two of the remaining four original copies of Magna Carta.
They've likened identifying scribes from Lincoln and Salisbury as being like finding 'needles in very large haystacks.'
Dr Claire Breay from the British Library says people from 1215 would be amazed at what's going on.
And if you are planning to attend the Runnymede celebrations – the road to Sunbury – that’s the A 308 is out of action all day.
