Local councillors say that they fear that the decision to close Southwark Fire Station has been motivated by the fire authority's wish to sell the site to property developers.
Nearly 200 plants have been added to a green wall which disguises a metal access staircase next to the recently reopened Wheatsheaf pub in Stoney Street.
Plans to spray the roads around Elephant & Castle with controversial glue used to trap air pollution have taken a step forward with confirmation that the Mayor of London has backed a funding bid by Southwark Council and Lend Lease.
