  6. Charity: 'It does not finish here'

    At the High Court Lord Justice Sullivan refused to order a fresh appeal saying: "There was a certain amount of puffing in which credit was claimed on behalf of Mr Johnson for a decision he did not take. That may be indiscreet, it may be reprehensible to a degree but it was certainly not unlawful."

    Andrea Williams, chief executive of the Christian Legal Centre, said: "It does not finish here. It is all a whitewash."

    In July 2014, the High Court dismissed a charity's claim the London mayor was responsible for banning their bus advert which suggested people could "get over" homosexuality.

  7. Group loses latest gay bus advert challenge

    Bus advert

    The Core Issues Trust produced posters for the sides of London buses in 2012 which read "Not Gay! Ex-Gay, Post-Gay and Proud. Get over it!" The advert was a response to a bus poster campaign by gay rights group Stonewall, which carried the message: "Some people are gay. Get over it!"

  13. Haunted hotel?

    Sitala Peek

    BBC News

    Over the years, the Langham has played host to many notable guests, including the exiled French emperor Louis-Napoleon III, Charles Dickens, one of the "Cambridge Five" spies Guy Burgess and his wartime employer, the BBC.

    The Langham, London

    More recently, the hotel has played host to the England cricket team, with bowler Stuart Broad claiming the building was haunted.

  14. 150 years of London's 'Grand Hotel'

    Sitala Peek

    BBC News

    Billed as London's first "Grand Hotel", it is exactly 150 years since the Langham began serving the whims of the rich and famous.

    The Langham Hotel

    The hotel, which claims to have invented the tradition of the Afternoon Tea, was opened by the Prince of Wales - later Edward VII - on 10 June 1865.

  15. Heathrow or Gatwick?

    Tim Donovan

    Political Editor, BBC London

    The timescales around any aviation expansion make it possible that not just Goldsmith's but several subsequent mayoral careers may have come and gone before any meaningful progress is made, de-toxifying the issue.

    A slightly different scenario emerges if the Davies Commission recommends both more Heathrow and more Gatwick.

    Plane preparing to land at Heathrow

    Some say the government could then prioritise Gatwick, but prevaricate further on Heathrow and agree to take a rain-check, which could accommodate not just Goldsmith, but other cabinet figures who don't want any more air traffic out west.

    Many think a Davies decision in favour of Gatwick could be the least politically problematic. But the Tory MPs in surrounding constituencies are beginning to mobilise. And what they may lack in cabinet rank they could make up for in attitude. Tell us what you think.

  16. Goldsmith 'vowed to stand down' over Heathrow expansion

    Tim Donovan

    Political Editor, BBC London

    According to the FT, the government is likely to delay its response to the Davies Commission recommendations until Christmas.

    We are about to have a Tory mayoral selection process running concurrently with deep airport wounds being re-opened.

    If Davies recommends a third runway at Heathrow, and the government proceeds, Goldsmith has already said that he will stand down from his Richmond Park seat and trigger a by-election. As mayor, he says, he would plan to stand down from his seat anyway.

  17. Mayoral race's impact on airport expansion

    Tim Donovan

    Political Editor, BBC London

    There's much speculation about what impact Zac Goldsmith's entry to the London mayoral race could have on the country's future decisions on aviation.

    Zac Goldsmith

    Could an expanded Heathrow be politically deliverable with Goldsmith in City Hall? Is his decision to stand his own most effective strategy to block a third runway?

    Could the potential best interests of a nation become secondary to the desire to see another Conservative succeed Boris Johnson to the mayoral prize?

  18. Police appeal in murder inquiry

    The Met Police have appealed for anyone who was in contact with a 33-year-old woman before she was murdered to get in touch. Vanessa Santillan was killed at her home in Romily Court, Fulham on 28 March.

    Vanessa Santillan

    Det Ch Insp Rebecca Reeves, leading the investigation, said: "I know that there were a number of people who visited Vanessa at her flat in the week leading to her murder. I need to speak with those people.

    ""If you knew Vanessa in any capacity, please do come forward, no matter how unimportant it may seem, please make the call."

    David Cameron at Prime Minister's Questions

    David Cameron responded: "Well we benefit hugely from having Boris's wisdom now back in this House.

    "The baton that I'm interested in seeing is the moment at which Boris passes the baton to another Conservative mayor of London."

    Mr Johnson, the newly elected Conservative MP for Uxbridge and South Ruislip, has been widely tipped to lead the Conservative Party.

    "It is imperative that specialist firearms officers act professionally at all times, and that they only take the extreme step of opening fire in a public street when absolutely necessary," Max Hill QC, prosecuting, said.

    He added: "We say that Azelle Rodney and the other men in the Golf were embarked on criminal activity that day, and they deserved to be stopped, to be arrested, and to be dealt with for any crimes they had committed.

    "They did not deserve to be shot and killed, and it was not necessary that this should happen to Azelle Rodney."

    Dominic Casciani

    Home affairs correspondent

    On the evening of 30 April 2005, specialist armed officers were authorised to use special tactics to stop and apprehend Azelle Rodney and other two suspects he was travelling with, the Old Bailey has heard.

    Max Hill QC, prosecuting, told the jury Anthony Long, a former police officer, fired eight shots from short range and six of them hit Mr Rodney.

    Anthony Long

    He said: "The prosecution say that it was not necessary for Mr Long to open fire upon the Golf and Azelle Rodney."

    "Therefore, we say, Mr Long was not acting lawfully when he opened fire. That being so, Mr Long's actions in deliberately killing Azelle Rodney, when it was not necessary to do so, make Mr Long guilty of murder."

  39. Ex-police marksman on trial for murder

  40. Law 'fails to hold officers to account'

    Hugh Southey QC, representing Jean Charles de Menezes' family, told the European Court of Human Rights he would argue that previous investigations into the death did not satisfy the requirements of Article 2 of the European Convention on Human Rights, which covers the right to life.

    Jean Charles de Menezes was shot at Stockwell Tube station after being mistaken for a terror suspect.

    Relatives of Jean Charles de Menezes at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg

    "We submit that the legal test does not correspond to Article 2 and fails to hold the officers to account. The investigation did not satisfy Article 2, it does not justify that the shooting was lawful," said Mr Southey.
