The Kensington MP Felicity Buchan has been criticised for a recent visit to the sight of the Grenfell Tower Fire.

 The Kensington MP Felicity Buchan has been criticised for a recent visit to the sight of the Grenfell Tower Fire. 

Matt Wrack, leader of the Norbiton based Fire Brigades Union accused the Tory MP of hunting for photo opportunities when he said she should focus on holding the government to account. 

Ms Buchan has said she believed she was right last year to vote against a Labour amendment to the Fire Safety Bill.

The amendment called for some measures to be implemented straight away, but the MP said she thought the effect would have been to delay the overall inquiry into the fire, which claimed the lives of 72 people.

The Wimbledon winner’s cash prize might look desirable, but players this year might want to practice their selfies as well as their serves.

 For the first time since Wimbledon offered prize money in 1968, the winners will receive less than the person whose name was etched on the cup before them.

The top prize of £1.7m is worth less than it was in 2014.

But players with strong Instagram followings can expect to make up to £128,000 for a single sponsored post.

Popular Instragrammer Serena Williams could make more money from three sponsored posts, than if she were to depart in the quarter finals with a prize of £300,000.

Detectives investigating the fatal shooting of Matthias Poleon in Balham are appealing for information.



The investigation team has issued an image of a grey coloured Volkswagen Golf seen in the area around the time of the incident and are keen to hear from anyone who has footage or information relating to the vehicle.

Detective Chief Inspector Katherine Goodwin is leading the investigation. She said: "I implore anyone who saw this vehicle in the area around the time of the incident to contact us, no matter how insignificant your information may seem, please get in touch, it could be vital to our investigation.

“Matthias was at his front door when he was shot. Friends and members of the public rushed to help him, as his killers fled the scene in a VW Golf that we believe to be the vehicle pictured.

"Matthias's family are at the beginning of an incredible ordeal. Think of their grieving, think of their suffering, and please do the right thing and tell police what you know.

"Anyone who has information but is reluctant to share it with police should consider that the people who committed this murder are violent criminals who have ended a man’s life and devastated a family. It is vital that they are apprehended.

"If you don’t want to speak directly to us, Crimestoppers is 100% anonymous and you won’t even be asked for your name – it doesn’t matter how you do it, but please do make the call.”

Police were called at approximately 22:50pm last Thursday to reports of a man suffering gunshot injuries in Bedford Hill.

Officers and London Ambulance Service attended and 27-year-old Matthias was taken to hospital for treatment, where he died a while later. 

Enquiries into the circumstances remain ongoing and there have been no arrests.

Anyone with information should call the incident room on 0208 785 8244 or tweet @MetCC quoting 8915/17June.

Alternatively, you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or visit crimestoppers-uk.org.

Firefighters are sharing battery safety advice after a house fire in Croydon.

Part of the ground floor of a semi-detached house in Coleridge Road was damaged by the blaze.

A man and a child left the building before the Brigade arrived and were taken to hospital by London Ambulance Service crews.

The Brigade’s Fire Investigators believe the fire was accidental and caused by the failure of a lithium-ion battery in the kitchen.

A London Fire Brigade spokesperson said: “Batteries can present a fire risk if they’re over-charged, short circuited, submerged in water or damaged, so it’s really important to protect them against being damaged and charge them safely.

"Unplug devices once they have finished charging and make sure you use the right charger for your device.

“This is also a timely reminder to test your smoke alarms. There were no working smoke alarms fitted inside the property. 

“Having working smoke alarms is so important in helping to detect fires and save lives. They can provide time to escape.”

A man from Ashford has been jailed after being convicted of a number of terrorism offences.

38 year old Michael Nugent ran and was active on a number of extreme right wing chat groups on the Telegram app.

He used different personas to express his racist views and hatred of ethnic minorities and shared terrorist-related documents with others.

But he was arrested after Met Counter Terrorism officers linked the various online accounts to Nugent’s real-world identity.

He was sentenced earlier to three-and-a-half years imprisonment at Kingston Crown Court.

Commander Richard Smith, who leads the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command, said: "Nugent freely shared his abhorrent extremist views with others over a messaging app, and he passed on manuals detailing how to produce deadly weapons and explosive devices.

"However, he was stopped when he was arrested by counter terrorism officers.

"This is another case which shows how harmful online extremism is. That is why it is important that anyone who believes that they have a friend or loved one who they think has been radicalised, or is vulnerable, seeks help.

"The Counter Terrorism Command, with the national Counter Terrorism Policing network and other partners, work around the clock to bring the likes of Nugent to justice, root out harmful extremism online, and keep the public safe."

Nugent shared manuals on how to make explosives and homemade firearms, and published an edited video of the Christchurch Mosque terror attack. One of his offences relates to Nugent sending an edited version of the manifesto written by the Christchurch attacker.

Nugent was arrested in August 2020.

He was interviewed over seven days following his arrest, but gave no comment.

Nugent was initially charged with 12 Terrorism Act offences; a further six charges were subsequently added.
