    BBC London News

    On air tonight: Two stories, very different in nature but both raising the question: how tolerant should London be of extreme views and is a city which prides itself on tolerance in danger of losing that reputation? 

    BBC London's Alex Bushill reports on two men convicted of handing out leaflets promoting the so-called Islamic State group outside Topshop on Oxford Street.

    And our reporter Helen Drew will look at the protesters storming an Israel Society meeting at King's College London, branded "neo-Nazis" by former communities secretary Eric Pickles.
