Plus reaction to and analysis of the Chancellor's Autumn Statement, after George Osborne reveals his budgetary measures to find extra savings and revive the UK economy; the hospital treating the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge offers its regrets after Australian DJ pranksters are put through in a hoax phone call; and West Ham are named as preferred bidders in their attempt to take over London's Olympic Stadium.
