New Populus polling released by Heathrow today shows support for the airport’s expansion plan remains strong in local communities. The polling results come as Heathrow confirms its second phase of consultation will start in the New Year. Building upon its first consultation in early 2018, Heathrow will hold two further consultations in January and June 2019, where local people will be able to have their say on the airport’s plans for expansion.
The Populus results released today are taken from the first local poll conducted since June’s landmark parliamentary vote on the Airports National Policy Statement, where a majority of local MPs voted in favour of expanding Heathrow. The latest polling confirms what regular polling has shown since 2015 – that more local people support Heathrow’s expansion than oppose it.

TATE BRITAIN - LONDON

One of the most prestigious London cultural institutions, Tate Britain is ideal for drying off and taking in some of the most stunning and thought-provoking art anywhere in the UK. The permanent collection is home to David Hockney’s A Bigger Splash, JMW Turner’s The Angel Standing in the Sun and Sir John Everett Millais’s Ophelia to name just a few, while sculptures from the likes of Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth are big draws too. There are few better spaces to while away an afternoon in the #city.

Tower of London is running out of ravens as Historic Palaces say shortage risks 'prophecy coming true'

It is said that the Kingdom of England will fall if less than six ravens are kept in the Tower of London.

According to King Charles II’s infamous decree, if the birds leave the site, then its White Tower will crumble and the country will be plunged into chaos.

Now, in order to make sure "the prophecy will never come to pass" , the tower will build its own breeding aviary to ensure that the current ravens survive.

There are fears surrounding the seven ravens who live at the tower - Jubilee, Harris, Gripp, Rocky, Erin, Poppy and Merlina- as the animals breeding prospects have been cast into doubt.

Historic Royal Palaces has been granted planning permission by Tower Hamlets Council for the aviary in an effort to avert the “raven crisis” which has seen the birds numbers steadily decline in the UK.

Camera attached to eagle's head captures views of east London

Scottish company Elite Falconry brought two eagles, both more used to wheeling over the Scottish Highlands than Stratford, to the 26-acre site close to Pudding Mill Lane station.

The eagles spent several days acclimatising before animal welfare experts fitted them with telemetry devices to track them and prevent them getting lost.

How London can become the HQ of the world

The Shard would be turned into low-cost housing. The Gherkin would be converted into a massive Kentucky Fried Chicken while half of Canary Wharf would be grassed over and the rest turned into a roller-skating park.
To listen to some of the diehard Remainers over the last two years, big companies were about to evacuate London en masse as we left the European Union leaving only a few small, local businesses behind in what was once of the world's great business centres.

Kellenberger-White: ‘Alphabet’ part of London Design Festival

Move, muddle and clamber over this 26-strong collection of chairs created by design studio Kellenberger-White just for the LDF. Each letter of the alphabet has been constructed using folded metal and licked with a different colour of paint to form a typographic rainbow. One of the influences for this metallic alphabet soup was Bruno Munari’s photo series ‘Seeking Comfort in an Uncomfortable Chair’. Park your arse on the ‘R’ and you’ll find out why.
Broadgate. Tube: Liverpool St. Sat Sep 15-Sep 23. Free.
