Lib Dems' joy after by-election
Liberal Democrats were celebrating after winning a keenly fought by-election.
Linda Chung will now represent the Hampstead Town ward in Camden after romping home with 1,242 with the Conservatives coming second with 1,114 votes and Labour third with 289.
The Green Party came fourth while controversial right wing political group the British National Party trailed in last with a pitiful 29 votes.
Teenager robbed by gang
A gang of thugs grabbed a teenager by the throat before snatching his mobile phone.
The 16-year-old and his friend were walking on Acklam Road, Westbourne Park, on September 28 at 8pm when he was robbed by a gang of youths on bicycles.
Three of the thieves are described as black, and the fourth is described as a short, white boy.
All were wearing hoodies.
Information to the police focus unit on 020 8246 0173 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Thousands of pounds is being splashed on activities to ensure older people to stay social. More than £40,000 is being spent on two 'seniors on line' sessions where elder residents in Regent's Park ward, Westminster, can keep an active body and mind.
The scheme begins at St John's Wood Library in Circus Road, St John's Wood on October 1. For more information go to www.westminster.gov.uk
