Simon Hughes MP has accused Southwark's Labour administration of punishing parts of the borough which elected Liberal Democrat councillors with its plan to reduce the number of community councils and strip them of some of their powers.
Bermondsey councillor Mark Gettleson has called on Southwark Council to show "political bravery, responsibility and vision" to prevent more cyclists being killed in collisions on local roads.
Sixth-form students from the City of London Academy in Lynton Road took a deputation to Southwark's environment-themed Council Assembly meeting last week to ask the authority what it is doing to help schools in the borough become more energy efficient.
