After a “full security review” following recent attacks, the Metropolitan Police also revealed there will be a higher police presence than on previous years and said people attending would be subjected to extra checks and searches.

    Residents evacuated from Grenfell Tower are set to move into a £2 billion luxury complex in the heart of Kensington, the Standard can reveal. Plans are pressing ahead for some of the families made homeless from the devastating fire to be housed in one of London’s most desirable addresses. New flats in a Kensington High Street development — where penthouses go for up to £13 million — will be used to provide accommodation for families following the huge blaze that destroyed the tower block last week. Sixty-eight flats in the Kensington Row scheme have been acquired to permanently house families...

    Protestors took to the streets of London purportedly in response to the tragic fire at Grenfell Towers; but the reality is that this is nothing but the Militant Left using undemocratic means to force another election. Politicians are to blame for this directly; it is no coincidence that Labour Shadow Chancellor, John McDonald, several days ago called for a million people to take to the streets and force an early election…and then people take to the streets?!?!?! This is not a Grassroots movement of spontaneous uprising; it is a well-organised and well-funded protest with the aim of removing a democratically...

    A total of 58 people are dead or missing, presumed dead following the devastating fire at Grenfell Tower in west London, police have said. Commander Stuart Cundy said that number "may increase". The BBC understands it could be around 70 people in total. The recovery operation at the burnt-out block of flats has resumed and could take weeks, he said. Meanwhile, PM Theresa May admitted support for families in the "initial hours" was "not good enough". The statement came after Mrs May met some of the people made homeless by the fire and volunteer helpers in Downing Street.

    London’s Mayor Sadiq Khan has been slammed by members of the capital’s Jewish community over his refusal to ban Sunday’s anti-Israel al-Quds Day march and its traditional display of flags supporting the Hezbollah terrorist organization. Raphi Bloom, chairman of North West Friends of Israel group, told Breitbart News that despite repeated lobbying of Mr. Khan and a petition supported by almost 20,000 signatures calling for the event to be cancelled, the city’s leader has remained steadfast in his refusal to intervene. “Hezbollah is a proscribed terrorist organisation. It makes NO distinction between its armed and political wing, yet its supporters...

    CNN has responded to claims that a leaked video shows them fabricating a Muslim-led anti-terror protest after the London attacks, calling the allegations “nonsense.” The video has been circulating around social media and shows CNN reporter Becky Anderson standing by while her crew organizes and directs a group of Muslim protesters holding anti-terror signs. The crew tightly packs the approximately two dozen protesters together with signs facing the camera, while Anderson monologues about the “beautiful” anti-terror protest. CNN International responded to the claims that they staged the protest, writing, “This is nonsense. Police let demonstrators through the cordon to show...
