Mayor of London Boris Johnson has agreed to provide Lambeth and Southwark councils with an extra £200,000 to help the boroughs cope with the extra visitors expected to come to the South Bank, Bankside and London Bridge during the Olympics and Paralympics.
One of the councillors who voted to refuse permission for the controversial Eileen House skyscraper near Elephant & Castle has spoken out after the Mayor of London 'took over' the planning application from Southwark Council.
Simon Hughes MP and the Bishop of Southwark joined 200 people who slept out in the churchyard of Southwark Cathedral last Friday night to raise money for the Robes Project, a local homelessness charity.
