Carl Eddleston, TfL’s Head of Asset Operations, said: “Safety is our top priority and we regularly monitor our road infrastructure to ensure that it is safe for people to use. A recent inspection of this section of the A3 found that parts of the crash barrier needed replacement due to damage from collisions and corrosion. For safety reasons, until we can replace the barrier we have had to restrict access to the near side lane. We’d like to thank road users in the area for their patience and we’re working closely with our suppliers to manufacture a replacement barrier as quickly as possible, which we will install in the coming weeks.”

Environmental health officers have taken part in raids with police investigating activities at two shisha bars in Wandsworth.

The first operation led to the seizure of 104 kilos of shisha tobacco that had evaded customs duty worth around £500,000.

Charcoal burners used inside the business were producing toxic carbon monoxide gases nearly 60 times higher than levels considered safe.

An internal Audit of a department at Surrey County Council has found a new IT system responsible for a number of issues

The report into the Children’s Services found an absence of clear procedures, resulting in inconsistent practices.

It also says the poor system “almost certainly led to data errors and overpayments”.

The department says while the system is “modern” and “fit for purpose”, the way they implemented it “has not been smart”.

They say they “played around with it”, and have ordered a “top to bottom review of the ITS system”.

The Children’s Services had to bring in help from other authorities last year after consistent low results.

Statement from Tudor Williams regarding closure of New Malden department store



People across New Malden are expressing their sadness following the news Tudor Williams is to close after 100 years of trading.

The department store in the high street started life as a haberdashery in 1913, but it will shut at the end of June.

Supporters have taken to social media calling it “the end of the high street” and “the worst news for New Malden.”

Others are calling for it to be saved and “not turned into housing;” at the moment there is no word on what will happen to the site.

The company has released this statement this morning.

“Despite the tremendous effort by our New Malden management and staff and the extensive refurbishment, the store has unfortunately not seen the necessary improvement in sales.”

John Morris, Group Managing Director, says “with ongoing rising costs, and the tough retail climate, it is with the greatest of reluctance we have concluded that we are unable to continue trading at the store”.

Neither our Dorking store nor our sister store, Elphicks of Farnham, which has recently undergone a major refurbishment, are not affected by this decision and will continue to trade as normal.”

The New Malden Store will be selling out all stock and any special orders taken will be administered through the Elphicks of Farnham Store.
