A boat which had last year sailed from North Africa to Italy crammed with migrants made a special journey up the Thames on Wednesday to mark International Migrants Day.
Two electric buses are to be trialled on routes 507 and 521 for the next two years.
Visitors to Shad Thames on Wednesday found the street covered in gold 'cobbles'.
Bermondsey and Old Southwark Liberal Democrat MP Simon Hughes has been appointed to the Government as minister of state at the Department for Justice.
