London Tonight Tonight

Hi there,

First tonight, more than three hundred people were forced to flee their homes after a huge fire broke out on a housing estate in Peckham this morning. One eye-witness told us the area looked "like a war zone". At its peak, nearly two hundred fire fighters were tackling multiple fires, but the estate has been left almost completely destroyed. Thankfully, no one was seriously injured, but today's events have not only left hundreds sleeping in temporary accommodation, but were also a stark reminder of the tragedy at Lakanal House in nearby Camberwell in July. Then, six people died after a fire ripped through a block of flats and serious questions were asked then about the design of high-rise buildings. Southwark Council were ordered to improve fire safety standards in three other blocks of flats by London Fire Brigade and now, more questions are being asked about fire safety in the borough. We'll put those concerns to Kim Humphreys, the deputy leader of Southwark Council later.

Also tonight, London's Olympic Stadium has been included in London's bid to host 2018 World Cup football matches if England's seemingly faltering bid is successful. Despite initial plans to reduce its capacity and turn it into an athletics venue post 2012, the Olympic Stadium joins Arsenal's Emirates, Spurs' proposed new ground and Wembley as London's preferred choices. If approved - and that's far from a certainty, even if England win the bid - it'll mean something of a legacy revamp for the Olympic centrepiece. Who shouted 'white elephant'? Come on...own up!

More People's Millions as well as Glen Goodman struggles with yet another giant cheque before highlighting two more hopefuls.

See you at six.

Matt and Nina.
