Alfie Evans' parents 'welcome baby boy' four months after death of toddler 

Evening Standard
The parents of Alfie Evans are celebrating the birth of a baby boy four months after the death of the toddler, according to reports. Kate James, 20, gave birth to the new arrival last month and named him Thomas after his 21-year-old father, the Sun reported. Alfie died in April aged 23 months following a battle with a degenerative brain condition. His parents endured numerous High Court battles to continue treatment for their son abroad but judges supported doctors' decision to remove Alfie's life support. He died at Liverpool's Alder Hey hospital two days later. Alfie Evans died at Liverpool's Alder Hey hospital in April (Alfies Army Official) A source told the Sun the couple are "overjoyed" with their new arrival. They added that Ms James knew she was pregnant "during Alfie's final few weeks". The source told the newspaper: "They have been left devastated by Alfie's passing, but also vowed that they would carry on living for their son and are determined his death won't break them. "[Kate] and Tom are delighted with their new arrival "It's obviously tinged with sadness though as they know Alfie would have been a fantastic big brother, if only he'd managed to survive." Announcing his son's death in the early hours of April 28, Mr Evan's wrote on Facebook: "My gladiator lay down his shield and gained his wings at 02:30... absolutely heartbroken... I LOVE YOU MY GUY"." Mr Evans said their lives had been "turned upside down" by the "intense focus" his case had received. "Our little family along with Alder Hey has become the centre of attention for many people around the world and it has meant we have not been able to live our lives as we would like," he said. During the couple's high profile legal battle, campaigners dubbed "Alfie's Army" gathered outside the children's hospital. Bosses said they were "shocked" at the "barrage" of abuse that came from some quarters after they found themselves "at the centre of a social media storm". It led Merseyside Police to issue a warning over comments being made about the hospital online. After accepting that their options had been exhausted, Alfie's parents sought to build bridges with medical staff and pledged to work alongside doctors to give him "the dignity and comfort" he needed.... read more

Meghan Markle's Suits co-star Wendell Pierce reveals how much she is missed on set 

Evening Standard
The Duchess of Sussex's former Suits co-star Wendell Pierce has told of how much she is missed on set just days after he leapt to her defence over her father's public outbursts. Mr Pierce played Meghan's father in the legal drama before she quit the show earlier this year ahead of her May wedding to Prince Harry. Speaking at the premiere of his latest TV show, Jack Ryan, Mr Pierce, 54, said: "You work with someone for years and then their journey comes to an end, but she is so fantastically happy and I'm happy for her. "I remember the last moment I had with her on set, I told her no matter what happens know that you have friends that care about you. I can see that you are truly happy and I wish nothing but the best for you. Meghan and Harry at a performance of Hamilton earlier this week (PA) "So while she's missed we are happy for her, because to be a newlywed and have the life that she has is great." It comes just days after he criticised her father Thomas Markle over his public outbursts about Meghan and the Royal Family. Mr Pierce, who stars as Robert Zane in the US TV show, told the Daily Telegraph: "If you care about Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, then that should be first and foremost in your mind before you say anything. "If you love your daughter, just love your daughter. It's not for public consumption." Wendell Pierce attends the premiere of Amazon Prime's "Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan" at the Battleship Iowa on August 31, 2018 (Getty Images) Mr Pierce has played the role of the father of Rachel Zane, Meghan's character in Suits, since 2013. Meghan Markle's father Thomas and the Duchess of Sussex (PA/Reuters) Meghan's estranged sister Samantha Grant hit back at Mr Pierce for criticising their father. She tweeted: "And the Suits actor should stick to fiction, because the reality is, she should love and respect our Dad. Diffusion of responsibility. "People need to 'stop sucking' up without understanding the other side of the story." Meghan Markle's sister Samantha Grant (Inside Edition) Meghan's father did not attend her wedding to Prince Harry in May after it emerged he staged paparazzi photos "in a bid to recast his image as a loving father". He said he did not attend the wedding because he was in poor health following a heart attack. He has since made numerous public outbursts, including one in which he said the Duchess "might be better off if I died". He has also repeatedly criticised the Royal family for freezing him out and stopping him from contacting his daughter. Ms Grant has repeatedly criticised Meghan. She accused her of "humiliating their father" with "childish indignance" and labelled her "inhumane" earlier this month. She also called Prince Harry a "wuss".

Giant head to be constructed on South Bank to raise awareness of mental health 

Evening Standard
A giant head is set to be constructed above the Thames in central London in order to raise awareness of mental health issues. The 9m-high sculpture, called Head Above Water, is being erected on the South Bank as part of the London Design Festival in September. Designed by Brit Steuart Padwick, the installation on Gabriel's pier will be deliberately neutral in terms of gender, ethnicity and age. It is intended to be a symbol of hope and compassion for those who have experienced or are dealing with mental health issues, and the people who support them. It will be lit up in changing colours at night British industrial designer Sir Kenneth Grange said: "At last one of the major issues of our times, so often swept under the carpet, gets to be shouted from the rooftops and that cheers me greatly." TV presenter Kevin McCloud described the work as a "fine emblem" of a "healthy, creative, compassionate mind". Read more Exhibition Road will close to traffic on day of London Design Festival The sculpture will be lit up at night with different colours, designed to reflect changes in mood.

Night Tube: London Underground's 24-hour service celebrates two-year anniversary 

Evening Standard
The London Underground is celebrating two years of the Night Tube. For many revellers tired of using several buses to get home or night-shift workers looking for a shorter commute, the arrival of the night tube was warmly welcomed. It has cut their journey times home by at least 20 minutes. According to TfL, the Night Tube has been a success with 17 million journeys made so far. Passengers disembark a Night Tube at Leyton Underground Station on August 20, 2016 (Getty Images) Plans for the Night Tube were announced in 2014 by TfL and it was hoped that it would begin in September 2015. However it faced difficulties as a series of strikes over pay delayed it by nearly a year. The 24-hour service, running on Friday and Saturday nights, was introduced on the Central and Victoria lines on August 19. Images from the opening night showed bleary-eyed revellers munching on fast food after an enjoyable night out in the capital. Even the Mayor of London decided to take a trip on the Victoria line on its opening night. Following its success, it now runs also runs on the Piccadilly, Jubilee, Overground and Northern (via Bank) lines. It is thought that the Circle line is likely to be the next Night Tube line meaning that the 24-hour service will connect to all mainline train stations. While the DLR is also poised to become 24-hours in the future. Revellers wait for the tube at Oxford Circus station (Getty Images) There are long-term hopes to extend it to the District and Metropolitan lines and on Crossrail between Paddington and Abbey Wood after it opens. Research has predicted that the Night Tube will contribute more than £1.5 billion to London's economy over the next 10 years, which is double the initial projections. Sadiq Khan said: "I am delighted to have delivered London's first-ever Night Tube for Londoners. Its first two years have been an even bigger success than we predicted - allowing more people to get home quickly and safely after a night shift, or night out with friends, but also providing a huge boost to London's night-time economy. "In the past year we have also launched the Night Overground and I look forward to extending the service to more Underground lines to help even more people travel around our city more safely and quickly."... read more
