HIGH COURT

A second inquest into the death of a father-of-three who suffered fatal injuries in a high-speed police pursuit concluded today, with a jury finding the way the chase unfolded contributed to the death.

Sadiq Khan and Transport for London (TfL) have confirmed to the Ham&High that controversial cycling route CS11 "isn't happening".

I refer to Simon Munk's article, "Those who blocked CS11 should 'reflect hard' as more risk future injuries or death", writes Jessica Learmond-Criqui, local campaigner, full address supplied:

A quick look at the terrifying collision map for Swiss Cottage junction shows that, in the last five years, about 60 collisions there have resulted in injuries.

The Court of Appeal have upheld High Court judge Sir Ross Cranston's ruling that the controversial CS11 cycle route is unlawful in its current form and denied TfL permission to appeal further.

Work has begun to demolish the former Swiss Cottage office block 100 Avenue Road, despite a pending bid for a judicial review.

A woman who claimed there was a "satanic child abuse ring" in Hampstead has been jailed for nine years over stalking parents and breaching a restraining order.

The last 12 months have seen heartening tales of community action interspersed with trauma, tragedy and political intrigue. Harry Taylor and Sam Volpe take a look back at the biggest stories we've brought you in 2018 - and a couple of the weirdest, too.

A woman left infertile after bungled tests at the Whittington failed to spot that she had cervical cancer has been awarded the cost of having children by surrogate in the USA.

Transport for London (TfL) has confirmed to the Ham&High it is working on the CS11 traffic modelling at the centre of its High Court defeat in September.

Transport for London is trying to formally appeal the High Court's decision to block CS11 - the controversial cycle route that would have ripped up the Swiss Cottage gyratory.

When the Conservative Liberal Democrat coalition announced plans to introduce Universal Credit back in 2010, they said that merging six existing benefits into one would reduce child poverty, simplify the social security system and ensure work always pays.

I can still remember clearly the first time I heard about Charles Keidan and Rebecca Steinfeld.

High Court judge Sir Ross Cranston, who last week blocked Transport for London's (TfL) plans to begin building the CS11 cycle superhighway in Swiss Cottage, has denied TfL permission to appeal his judicial review ruling.

Letters, contributions and comments sent in from Ham&High readers this week.

Hard on the heels of a successful injunction granted by Judge Holgate against TfL, Judge Sir Ross Cranston gave judgement against TfL in the main judicial review hearing on September 13, 2018.

"Today's ruling [...] focuses on procedure rather than the merits of the scheme."

A cycling campaigner has blamed CS11's legal defeat on Transport for London's "watering down" of the project - and said it is time for London mayor Sadiq Khan to "improve his politics game".

The CS11 cycle route from Swiss Cottage to Regent's Park has been sensationally blocked by a High Court judge in what seems set to be a landmark ruling.

Sitting in the High Court last week took me back to my childhood. No, it wasn't one spent anywhere near a courtroom of any kind. In fact, it was Transport for London's trump argument that took me back.

Contaminated blood scandal victims have slammed the former director of the Royal Free Hospital's haemophilia centre after unearthing a recording which sees her admit to non-consensual blood testing of patients and criticise campaigners.

Transport for London intends to press ahead with CS11 without Westminster Council's consent because Sadiq Khan and the transport authority legally have the final say, a High Court judge has heard.

The High Court is today set to examine whether CS11, the controversial cycle route through Swiss Cottage, can legally be built.

We've all been in situations when someone's mobile has gone off when it shouldn't have.
