Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is understood to be under the microscope of British intelligence due to his relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin

Mr Abramovich, who was previously delayed in receiving a visa for the UK, gained Israeli citizenship earlier this year.

Along with several other Russian Oligarchs the multi billionaire has faced new measures including probes by UK authorities into his assets, property portfolio and travel activities.

The reasons according to sources within Whitehall for these measures brought against the Oligarchs are their intimate professional and financial association with the Kremlin.

It is thought that Roman Abramovich is an important key to the Russian governments bidding on several fronts and a major backer and supporter of Vladimir Putin.

The probing by the intelligence services has been approved at the highest level with Theresa May signing off the list of suspects.

The list is to be disseminated throughout Whitehall departments and NATO allies in an attempt to reduce the movement of those listed and the ability to conduct their business empires.

Oleg Deripaska, who is associated various British MPs and Evgeny Fokin, (a former senior officer with Russia’s SVR foreign intelligence service, held the position pf director with Mr Deripaska’s London-based energy company EN+) are also known to have joined Mr Abramovich on the list.

Another name on the list is Alisher Usmanov who recently had a stake in Arsenal Football Club and whose company has ties with Everton.

In spite of reports linking Roman Abramovich to the Russian GRU intelligence services the blues owner refused to comment on the investigation and has denied being a member of Putin’s inner circle.

A council approach to pub protection is paying off in Wandsworth

New figures from The Office for National Statistics show only 15 have been lost in the borough since 2001.

However, neighbouring boroughs like Merton have lost double that in the same time period.

Wandsworth council has taken direct action to prevent pubs being lost.

In 2016 it became the first authority in the UK to bring in protection measures called ‘Article 4 Directions.’

So changes to pubs have to go through the planning process, rather than being automatically allowed under ‘permitted development’ rules.

This means they can no longer be converted into other venues, such as mini-supermarkets, without the need for planning permission.

St George’s Hospital in Tooting “requires improvement.”

That’s according to the latest Care Quality Commission report published today.

Although Critical Care was rated “good” by inspectors, Outpatients and Diagnostic Imaging was found to be “inadequate.”

Surgery and End of Life Care also “requires improvement.”

The hospital says “significant progress has been made since the CQC’s visit in August.”

Meanwhile, St George’s cardiac surgery service is safe, but further improvements are needed also.

The CQC carried out a focussed inspection of the cardiac surgery service at St George’s Hospital in Tooting in August and September this year, and has confirmed in its inspection report today that the service provided for patients is safe.

Since the CQC’s inspection, and in response to the external, independent report completed by Professor Mike Bewick in July, the Trust says it has taken a number of steps to stabilise and improve the service for the benefit of patients and staff.

This includes the appointment of Mr Steven Livesey, "an experienced cardiac surgeon from outside the organisation," to provide leadership for the service.

Mr Livesey has now started in post.

Jacqueline Totterdell, Chief Executive of St George’s, said:

“I am pleased the CQC has confirmed the cardiac surgery service we provide is safe, following their visit in the summer.

“The service experienced significant challenges earlier this year, and it will be reassuring to the communities we serve that the CQC has confirmed it is safe.

“Of course, this does not change the fact that significant improvements are required and significant progress has been made since the CQC’s visit back in August.

“I am grateful to many of our cardiac surgery staff for the commitment and dedication they have shown; they deserve a huge amount of praise during what was a difficult period for the service.”

A £20,000 reward for information is being re-offered two years on from the murder of a man in Wallington



55 year old Carl O’Brien was attacked in December 2016 in a communal stairwell outside his flat in Vanguard Way.

It’s believed he answered the door to his attackers in the early hours after they buzzed a number of flats to try and gain access to the block.

The grandfather, an avid Chelsea fan, died from a blunt force trauma to the head.

DI Jo Sidaway of the Homicide and Major Crime Command, leading the investigation, said:

"The investigation into the circumstances around Carl's death continues, and we will do everything we can to deliver justice for his family and loved ones.

He was a beloved family man with a young granddaughter he doted on, and he is sorely missed.

On the night of the assault, we know that there had been a party on the Roundshaw estate where Carl lived earlier that evening.

Although Carl did not attend that party, anyone who went to that party is a potential witness.

While we have taken statements from a number of people as part of this enquiry, we believe that there are people who have not yet come forward and told police what they know.

I would urge them to do so now, and I hope the substantial reward being offered will further encourage those people to do the right thing and call police.

I am sure that there are people who know who did this to Carl, and that someone, most likely in the Sutton or wider South London and Surrey areas, has the information to help us solve this case."

Anyone with information about Carl's death can contact the Incident Room on 020 8721 4005, or via the police non-emergency number 101.

Carshalton's MP backs BHF's calls for better understanding of heart attack symptoms in women

Women must have equal heart attack care to men.

That's according to Lib Dem MP Tom Brake who is calling for more awareness of the symptoms in women.

A recent British Heart Foundation report shows that 8,000 women die each year as a result of unequal heart attack care.

The charity says heart attack symptoms in women can differ from those seen in men, and it is a failure to recognise these symptoms that can lead to unnecessary deaths.

Alison from New Malden suffered a heart attack last year.

She says her symptoms were not what you might expect.



Carshalton & Wallington MP Tom Brake:

"It is time to stop considering heart attacks a male-only problem. The failure to recognise the widespread nature of this medical emergency and misdiagnosis of its symptoms have contributed to the tragic deaths of women throughout the UK.”

"We must work for a greater understanding of the symptoms of heart attacks in women so that those affected can seek help quickly, and those treating them can provide optimal care."

AFC Wimbledon has named Wally Downes as its new manager

He takes over from Neal Ardley who was sacked last month.

The club says it was aware of comments made on social media by Downes that are not consistent with its values.

But it says it has accepted assurances they do not represent his views.

Downes made 207 appearances for Wimbledon during his playing career.

The club has issued this statement.

"We are delighted to announce Wally Downes as the new AFC Wimbledon first team manager.

His assistant manager is Glyn Hodges.

We conducted an exhaustive and rigorous process which started with over 80 applications for the role.

Wally Downes had the highest calibre coaching CV of any of the applicants and through two interviews outlined his strategy to increase the levels of performance required to ensure our key task of maintaining League One survival this season, whilst also continuing the legacy of our club on and off the pitch.

Wally previously spent a two year stint managing Brentford and has coached extensively in the Championship and Premier League at Reading, Crystal Palace and West Ham.

Glyn Hodges has also coached in the Premier League for Fulham as well as holding senior roles in player development at a number of clubs, including Queens Park Rangers, Stoke City and Manchester City.

Simon Bassey will step back from his role as interim manager and continue as first team coach while Stephen Reid, who has been supporting Simon in his role, will step down.

Simon and Stephen took on the responsibility for seeing us through the transition to a new manager.

We are very grateful to them for taking on their respective roles, breaking the run of league defeats and seeing us into the third round of the FA Cup.

The current backroom staff will also retain their roles.

We will be holding a ‘meet the manager’ session as soon as practical for fans to meet, or reacquaint themselves, with Wally and Glyn."
