  3. 'Ordnance' detonated in Solent

    A controlled explosion involving suspected ordnance found by a fishing boat has been carried out in the Solent.

    The object was discovered in the sea between Gosport and Fishbourne, Isle of Wight, yesterday morning, coastguards said.

    Royal Navy bomb disposal teams carried out the detonation at the scene this afternoon.

  4. South Western Railway strike 'rock solid'

    Rail workers on strike

    The start of a three-day strike by workers on South Western Railway (SWR) has been "rock solid", their union has claimed.

    The RMT (the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers) began a walkout at midnight, which will last until the end of the weekend.

    The dispute is over the future role of guards.

    SWR said the network was "running well" and it had succeeded in delivering two-thirds of normal services.

  5. Derelict building collapses into street

    Part of the wall of a derelict building has collapsed into a street in the centre of Southampton.

    Firefighters were called to St Mary's Street at about 14:30 BST and spent two hours making the building safe.

    Local Democracy Reporting Service

    Commuters in Southampton are set to face disruption as work is carried out on one of the city's major routes in a bid to ease congestion.

    New traffic signals, which civic chiefs say the £700,000 scheme will improve traffic flow, will be installed on Stoneham Way, with work set to be completed just in time for Christmas.

    Full, 24-hour closures of the road will start in late October and last for eight weeks. But the road, which is a major city entrance from the M27, will also be partially-closed overnights from September 17.

  8. Analysis: Crossrail loses some of its lustre

    Crossrail

    I have lost count of the times that Crossrail executives said to me the project would be delivered "on time and on budget".

    Today, with the news the £15bn project will be delayed by nine months, that disappeared in a puff of smoke, and there is no doubt this is a blow for Crossrail.

    I'm told it wasn't one specific problem. There were issues with three different signalling systems and also delays to the station fit outs.

    They simply ran out of time. This will also hit TfL's finances who were relying on Crossrail to increase their fare take.

    This flagship project - the biggest construction project in Europe - just lost some of its lustre.
