London Tonight Tonight

Afternoon all. The bank holiday weekend starts here!!! There's something about knowing that the weekend is followed by Monday off as well that adds a spring to the step. My tip? Avoid motorways, DIY and any attempts to be persuaded to 'nip to the shops' at all costs and you'll be fine. Bank holidays are for doing as little as possible in my opinion (other than watching or playing copious amounts of sport).

Before all that though, best get Friday out of the way first! It's Notting Hill carnival this weekend with over a million revellers expected to descend on West London for the event's 50th anniversary. Marcus Powell reports on how the police are preparing for Europe's biggest street party.

Now, Remember the row over over the US Embassy's unpaid congestion fines? Well now the Americans want to move their embassy from Grosvenor Square to Battersea to increase security. If they do, they'll be landed with a 50 million pound tax bill that they insist they shouldn't have to pay....discuss. We will!

A massive football match in the offing this weekend with Arsenal travelling to Old Trafford to take on Premier League Champions, Manchester United. We catch up with Gunners legend, Charlie George (he of 1971 FA Cup Final goal glory) about how his beloved Arsenal will do against the Red Devils and indeed, this season as a whole.

To finish the week, we turn our attention to entertainment. Lucy Cotter's getting 'loaded in the park'. Don't panic, that's the name of one of London's coolest dance music festival's (like I know?). She's chatting to 'Orbital' (who even I've heard of!). Get your glow-sticks and whistles at the ready!

Finally, James King's in the studio to talk us through the latest movie releases. As an aside...movie going is allowed on Bank Holiday weekend's (just), but remember what I said about DIY and shopping!

(Alex here - DIY for me this weekend - will have to give Matt my shopping list! Enjoy)
