Welcome to London Tonight Tonight.

This is the official website of London Tonight, on ITV1 in London and the South East every weeknight at 6pm.



Afternoon all. Matt Teale here with my first London Tonight blog. A quick thanks to everyone in the office for making me feel so welcome and showing me the ropes, as well as where the kettle is. I can't promise I'll be brewing up every day though!

Our top story tonight is that of a Muslim man who claims he was abducted at knifepoint from his home and threatened in Epping Forest, all over a place of worship. Glen Goodman investigates.

Now, what were you doing aged 17? Personally, I was neglecting my studies and trying to get served in pubs. Not so record-breaking Mike Perham, from Potters Bar, who's just sailed 30,000 miles around the world!! Piers Hopkirk went to welcome home the hero from Hertfordshire who battled 50ft waves and gale force winds.

Now, this is astonishing: With the Lib Dems complaining that the Government are demonising young people, our reporter Phil Bayles has discovered a teenage girl whose punishment for drawing on her travel card is breaking rocks?!?! Surely not? Over to Phil.

Next we have stories of teenage success with GCSE pass rates up in the capital and Lucy Cotter's on hand to explain how a dentist from Dorking got caught up in a shootout between police and a french gangster?!

If all that wasn't enough, we have not one, but two sporting greats on the programme as well: Muhammad Ali and Henry Cooper's 1963 heavyweight clash at Wembley remains a sporting classic. Sir 'Enry reflects on their iconic clash for us.

See you at Six.

Matt and Alex
