Two police officers have been awarded commendations by the chief constable of the British Transport Police for their part in saving the life of a woman who had taken a heroin overdose at Waterloo Station.
Transport for London's commissioner Mike Brown has conceded that the organisation didn't do enough to ensure bus journeys weren't unduly delayed during the remodelling of the Elephant & Castle junction.
In 1957 Herbert Morrison MP told the House of Commons that the Elephant & Castle area is "not so bad as it looks".
