A bid to open a controversial payday loan shop in Tower Bridge Road has been halted by Bermondsey Community Council.
The Mayor of London has launched a search for artists, companies and community groups to perform at 'PICTURE: Potters Fields', the free festival to be held in the park next to Tower Bridge during the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The Elephant & Castle Leisure Centre will close in June in preparation for the demolition of the building and redevelopment of the site, a senior Southwark Council officer has said.
Three and a half months after a man was violently assaulted in Roupell Street in the early hours of New Year's Day, police have appealed for witnesses to come forward.
