    Ugly spectacle outside the Ritzy just now. A woman hit the security guard with a plank. After she was cuffed she spat at someone, so the police used the full panoply of restraint techniques. She had to lie on the ground for a good few minutes waiting for a van. The police were quite gentle. I doubt she'll have a bruise on her in the morning.

    Brixton Windmill beer and bread festival was great. Sunny weather brought out loads of people. Well organised. Went on tour of the windmill. Which was milling flower.

    The machinery.

    There was a fire engine and ambulances at the junction of electric ave/Brixton Rd when I walked through an hour or two ago. Assumed it was a RTA but maybe it was this.

    The reports are so confused. It was a ‘fight’ she may have been on a bus etc. Awful

    So people are carrying acid on the bus in case they have an opportunity for a fight? That's Mexico-level savagery.

    Ok I know it's not Brixton. But, it's only up the road.....

    From Saturday 26 May until mid-September, Bank branch trains will not stop at Kennington Tube station and there will be no step-free interchange between the branches at the station. This is while we carry out essential work to build new passageways between the platforms at Kennington Tube station, in preparation for the Northern Line Extension.

    More frequent, direct trains will run between Morden and the Charing Cross branch. For step-free access, please ensure you board a direct train to your destination.

    There will be a slightly reduced service on the Bank branch and the Northern and Victoria lines and some stations are likely to be busier. Please avoid the busiest times, if you are able to, allow extra time for your journey or use alternative routes.

    "Officers continue to investigate after a woman was targeted in a suspected noxious substance attack in Lambeth.

    Police were called to Brixton Road, SW9 by The London Ambulance Service (LAS) at 13:45hrs on Tuesday, 8 May, following reports of a woman being the victim of a suspected noxious substance attack whilst on a bus.

    Officers and the LAS attended.

    The 18-year-old woman was treated at the scene as she got off the bus. She was then taken to a central London hospital for treatment.

    Her condition is not life-changing or life-threatening. She has no major burns.

    Enquiries continue to trace the single suspect involved, who is now believed to be female.

    This incident appears to be targeted and not a random attack.

    The bus - which is believed to be the scene of the attack - continues to be examined.

    A crime scene remains in place and temporary road closures are in effect.

    At this stage, this attack is being treated as GBH.

    Detectives from the Roads and Transport Policing Command are investigating.

    Anyone with information is requested to call police on 101 quoting CAD 4258/8May or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. You can also tweet police via @MetCC."

    I suspect that we will not be hearing too much more about this incident.​

    Is that your comment or the Daily Mail?
    Will we not hear much more because
    1. it is now "sub judice" and further comment would prejudice a trial
    2. it is a mental health incident rather than an acid attack
    3. the whole thing is now copyright by the Daily Mail®

    What is the point of this post?

    The website is truly obnoxious.

    How can a Labour Council do this?

    Surely a Labour Council should be regenerating area for ordinary people. Not encouraging developments for the rich?

    The Labour party was set up to defend Labour. Not to work with property developers to build homes for the rich.

    That's one picture I wouldn't take. Why are you posting it here? What do you hope to achieve? Why is it necessary?

    Yes - my immediate reaction was to hear the voice of Neil Kinnock "They are then pickled into a rigid dogma, a code, and you go through the years sticking to that, out-dated, misplaced, irrelevant to the real needs, and you end in the grotesque chaos of a Labour council—a Labour council" in our case providing over-priced housing for people whom would be be happier in Shoreditch (or should I say we would be happier if they stayed in Shoreditch).
