Anyone trying to get some sleep in West London on Friday night can hardly have missed the noise of the Police helicopters circling overhead.
According to BBC news, "seven police officers were injured after police tried to break up an unlicensed music event in west London."

The Corona virus hasn't brought us many benefits (less traffic?) but it has brought some communities closer together.
In Macfarlane Rd, the indefatigable Belinda Mitchell-Innes organised leaflets, a Facebook Group, and a WhatsApp Group to help keep an eye on the most vulnerable and make sure local people stayed safe. This weekend, she is inviting neighbours to a "Street Meet and Greet" at 5pm on Sunday 5th July.
