Second Man Arrested Over London Train Attack

LONDON — A second man has been arrested over Friday’s bomb attack on a London underground train that injured 30 people, police said.

The 21-year-old man was arrested in the west London suburb of Hounslow just before midnight on Saturday, the Metropolitan Police force said in a statement.

He was detained under Britain’s Terrorism Act and taken to a south London police station, the force added.

Earlier on Saturday, British police arrested an 18-year-old man in the port of Dover and raided a property in Sunbury, a small town outside London, as they hunted for whoever planted the device.

Hounslow is about four miles from Sunbury where police raided and searched a building on Saturday in connection with the bombing.

The home-made bomb shot flames through a packed train carriage at west London’s Parsons Green train station but apparently failed to detonate fully.

Spin Cycle comes to Hounslow High Street on Saturday 21 September 3pm free outdoor performance

Musical on the move called SPIN CYCLE comes to Hounslow on Saturday 21 September.
One of London's most ambitious and outrageous outdoor performances is on its way to Hounslow High Street as part of a free London tour.

Featuring a cast of circus aerialists, dancers, singers, poets and local young performers, Spin Cycle is a daring musical on the move. Charting the story of a game show and its panel of competitors each trying to win the 'ultimate luxury lifestyle', this spectacular outdoor street show will be performed outside Holy Trinity Church, Hounslow High Street at 3pm.

The performance takes the form of a journey from market stall bargain hunting to a dangerous game of extreme shopping that ends with a challenge to everyone to come together to make a change to the way we live. It is a fable about waste and recovery.

Spin Cycle has been commissioned by Circulate; a consortium of six Arts Centre's aiming to develop an outdoor arts network in Outer London, building on the success of the outdoor arts programme within the London 2012 Cultural Festival.

The consortium is backed by The Mayor of London Boris Johnson who said:
"Culture has a critical role to play in the success of our city, helping to breathe new life into local high streets and I am delighted to support this exciting new initiative bringing cultural activity to outer London. The London 2012 Festival was extraordinarily successful, involving millions of people across the capital. It wasn't just the big events that captured people's imaginations; it was also smaller local events in high streets, town centres and parks that added to the magic. Circulate builds on that momentum and, as well as entertaining audiences, I hope it will inspire other arts organisations and boroughs to look at how they can create work to enhance our high streets."

This fantasy fable fuses physical performance with street theatre in a playful show created by acclaimed UK Company Emergency Exit Arts. It's packed full of humour and wit combining physical clowning with stand-up comedy from the top of a moving 30-foot tower.

Jan Lennox, Director, Watermans said: "Spin Cycle is building on the huge popularity of our outdoor events produced as part of the West London 2012 Festival, a series of free outdoor events enjoyed by over 60,000 people. Watermans has an active outdoor arts programme and we want to continue to provide arts for people in Hounslow and support the regeneration of the town centre."

As part of the London 2012 cultural programme the six venues in the consortium held a season of outdoor work and are now working together with the Greater London Authority and the Audience Agency for the next three years - creating a legacy from London 2012 and increasing outdoor arts provision in the city's outer boroughs.

Joyce Wilson, Area Director, London, Arts Council England, said: "Circulate is a really important project that continues the work undertaken during the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad. Through collaborative working and a variety of activity strands, the six partner organisations will bring a wealth of outdoor performance art to areas of London with relatively limited access to arts and culture. We are delighted to see the first commission, Spin Cycle, from this three year programme of work come to fruition and look forward to seeing future developments. Arts and culture have an important role in making life better for all and we are very pleased to be supporting this project."

Spin Cycle is free to attend, and suitable for the whole family, taking place on 21st September on Hounslow High Street at 3pm

Directed by Lillete Dubey

Matinee Sat 28 September. 4pm & Sun 29 Sept.7.30pm

Watermans is delighted to present the UK Premiere of, Where Did I leave my Purdah, a new show, by Primetime Theatre Company, one of India's best known companies working in English language theatre, and a regular at the venue.

Written by Mahesh Dattani, this comic drama is set against the backdrop of the famed company theatres that toured India from the 1940s performing classical and epic drama.
The play explores the life of a famous stage diva, Nazia Sahiba, and her complex relationships with those closest to her. Against the backdrop of the Indian Partition the story moves between the past and the present, revealing hidden resentments, passions, and long suppressed rivalries, as Nazia decides to direct the classic story of Kalidas's Shakuntala.
The Primetime Theatre Company and writer, Mahesh Dattani's earlier collaboration was Dance Like a Man, is India's longest running Indian English play (still running) about two Bharatnatyam dancers past their prime. Here, they return to the same theme looking at what happens to artistes as they get older, and you can't get big parts anymore!
Featuring a cast of five and among the hottest talent from stage and screen --
Lillete Dubey (Monsoon Wedding; The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) Soni Razdan
(Such a long Journey; 36 Chowringhee Lane) Neha Dubey (Monsoon Wedding; Twelfth Night, Albery Theatre), Sid Makker (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel; Zangoora) Selina (East is East; Bride & Prejudice) Where Did I Leave My Purdah "presents a fascinating account of the world of drama and theatre." Hindustan Times

Bette & Joan meets Bhumika in this story tinged with love, passion and humour.
Where Did I leave My Purdah celebrates the indomitable spirit of the doyennes of Indian theatre, such as Zohra Segal, Uzra Butt and Lalita Pawar.

"Purdah is a polished act, delivered by some of the finest names in theatre today. Even as the curtains came down, the audience were left wanting more." Times Of India

Police issue warning after crooks target elderly man

POLICE have urged people to be alert after an attempted burglary, in which two men pretended to be from the water board.

The crooks knocked at the door of an elderly man in Isleworth on March 3, at about 7pm.

They claimed they were from the water board and needed to come inside to turn his water off as there was a problem.

But their intended victim was wise to the danger and demanded ID, which they could not produce.

The men are both white and believed to be aged 25-30.

One is about 6ft, heavily built, with short dark hair and was wearing all black clothing. He had a heavy lisp.

The other is of medium build, about 5ft8. He was wearing jeans and a dark top.

A police spokesman urged members of the public to follow the elderly man's example and always ask for ID before granting strangers entry to their house.

Anyone who is concerned should call the police on 101, or 999 in an emergency.

Anyone with information about the attempted burglary is asked to call Hounslow CID on 020 8247 6160 or Crimestoppers, free and anonymously, on 0800 555 111.

"Fight to the finish," say Hounslow Lib Dems

In a campaign that has seen the Liberal Democrats overtake Labour in this constituency at the bookies - and receive endorsement from local resident, actor and campaigner Colin Firth - it is now clear that the local contest on Thursday 6th May will go right to the wire. Cllr Andrew Dakers, Liberal Democrat prospective MP for Brentford & Isleworth Constituency, the main challenger to both Labour and Conservatives, says every vote for the Liberal Democrats will count more than ever this time.

Cllr Andrew Dakers, Liberal Democrat prospective MP, said:

"Ann Keen has been losing support for over a decade. She is a deeply unpopular MP. With a swing of 9% again from Labour to the Lib Dems we can provide people with a new approach and more accessible representation in Parliament.

"Over the past few weeks we have experienced a phenomenal ground swell of support with financial donations, new volunteers and poster sites flowing in thick and fast. This election is now going right to the wire.

"Brentford and Isleworth needs real change. I have been rooted in the community my entire life, people know me as a hard-working local councillor and a committed environmentalist.

"If elected as your new MP, I will work with Nick Clegg and the Liberal Democrats to ensure that change comes about. A fairer tax system. A fair chance for every child. A fair future: creating jobs by making Britain greener. A fairer voting system where you have the right to sack your MP.

"It is time for a fundamental change in British politics. Labour promised electoral reform in 1997 but failed to deliver it. The Conservatives are opposed to it. Both Labour and Conservative supported the de-regulation of the financial sector that led to the economic crisis. Only the Lib Dems warned against it.

"Don't let the old parties scare you with their negative attacks. Don't let the old parties tell you that things can't be different. They can be.

"With your support on tomorrow Britain can have real change with the Liberal Democrats."


1. Andrew Dakers' campaign can be followed at www.andrewdakers.com and he will be 'Tweeting' throughout Election Day.

Undecided voters swing to Lib Dems following final Leaders Debate

Nick Clegg MPLast night was the final of the three televised Leaders' debates. Leader of the Liberal Democrats, Nick Clegg, debated with Gordon Brown and David Cameron about the economy. Subjects discussed included breaking up the banks, creating more jobs and reinvigorating the British economy.

Most post-debate polls scored this final debate to David Cameron, but again put Nick Clegg clearly ahead of Gordon Brown. An analysis by pollsters Angus Reid of previously undecided voters who watched the debate gave Nick Clegg 37%, David Cameron 25%, Gordon Brown 22% and Not sure 16%. Angus Reid found that 32% of undecided voters say they are now more likely to vote for the Liberal Democrats after watching the final debate, with just 18% Conservative and 15% Labour.

In his closing statement at the final leaders' debate, Liberal Democrat Leader Nick Clegg said:

"Everything I've said during these three television debates is driven by my simple belief that if we do things differently this time, we can create a fairer, better Britain.

"As you decide how to cast your vote, of course you'll be told by these two, that real change is dangerous, that it can't be done.

"Don't let anyone scare you from following your instincts. Together next week we can change Britain for good.

"Just think how many times you've been given lots of promises by these two old parties - only to discover when they get into Government that nothing really changes.

"We can do so much better than that this time.

"Of course I can't guarantee that every problem you face will be solved overnight. But I can guarantee that I will work tirelessly to deliver greater fairness for you.

"Fairer taxes, so that you pay less but people at the top pay their fair share.

"A fair start, smaller class sizes, for your children.

"A different approach to the economy.

"And open, decent politics which you can trust once again.

"I believe all this can happen. This is your election. This is your country.

"When you go to vote next week, choose the future you really want. If you believe like I do that we can do things differently this time, then together we will really change Britain.

"Don't let anyone tell you it can't happen. It can. This time, you can make the difference."
