If a meagre one-megaton bomb fell on Westminster in a nuclear war, the Royal Free, Whittington and Royal Northern hospitals would be rendered useless and University College Hospital would be obliterated. The Kentish Town Health Centre in Bartholomew Road, designated a first aid post, would be flattened. The 100 staff at the centre only discovered their role in a nuclear war last November when the war plan was leaked, and it is now on display at the centre.

Two men appear in court accused of criminal damage after they and other gipsies occupied Post Office land in Royal College Street, Camden Town. The Post Office have now blocked off entrances to the site to prevent more gipsies moving in.

Gipsies have been evicted from the Swiss Cottage site and Westcroft Estate, West Hampstead, but the Gipsy Council is now attempting to force Camden Council to provide a permanent caravan site.
