7 of the best places to stay to see the Northern Lights

Seeing the Northern Lights, one of nature's greatest displays, is on most people's travel bucket list.

There is no guaranteed time to see the lights, but you're best bet is between late September and early April, with February and March being the optimum months.

Myron Yarde stabbing: Three teens jailed for killing south London student in stolen bike row 

Evening Standard logo
Three teenagers who killed a student in a south London turf war which was sparked by a stolen bicycle have been jailed for 37 years today. Myron Yarde, 17, was chased and stabbed to death as he tried to retrieve his orange and black bicycle. Myron - known by his rap moniker Mdot - had loaned it to a friend so he could go and buy a pizza, but the pal strayed onto a rival gang's territory in New Cross and the bike was stolen from outside Dominos. Myron, who armed himself with a samurai sword, went with friends to get the bike back, but became embroiled in a running battle with teenagers from the rival Monson area. Following a chase through the streets Myron was cornered in Camplin Street and ultimately stabbed to death, on April 3 last year. Killer: Fauz Richards (Met Police) At the Old Bailey this afternoon, Judge Nicholas Cooke QC fired a warning to knife carrying teenagers in the Capital as he passed lengthy sentences on the killers, Fauz Richards, 19, Junior Lukelo-Mami and Lucus Risch, both 16. He also lifted restrictions to allow Lukelo-Mami and Risch to be named for the first time. "Deterrence is so necessary in relation to knife crime in London, it's perhaps best served by reporting who these people are", said the judge. He ruled Risch had disarmed Myron before Lukelo-Mami inflicted the fatal stab wound to the chest. Richards, one of the gang "elders", then stabbed Myron repeatedly as he lay dying in the ground. Stabbed to death: Myron Isaac Yarde () "That was in its own right a dreadful thing the judge told Richards. Judge Cooke also added that the case had an "odd" blend of military terms, referring to bystanders as "civilians", and childishness. "It was a cross between war and child games - child like lying, saying things that no adult would ever believe." The three teenagers had been cleared of murder at trial but convicted of manslaughter, having all denied involvement in Myron's death Richards was sentenced to 13 years in youth detention while Lukelo-Mami and Risch were both sentenced to 12 years. Jamie Kennedy, 31, and Charlotte Edmonds, 32, were both found guilty of perverting the course of justice and were sentenced to two years and three months each. They, with Risch, had successful got rid of the weapon that Myron was carrying that day. "The events in Camplin Street were the brutal culmination of matters that had begun a couple of hours earlier that day, and arose partly from the theft of a bicycle", prosecutor Lisa Wilding QC told the trial. "However, that itself reflected an ongoing tension between groups of youths who lived in different but neighbouring parts of New Cross." Myron's friend, Leoandro Osemeke - known to friends as Showkey - was the one who crossed the divide when he went to Dominos to order a pizza. He was due to be a key witness in the case, but was himself stabbed to death at a house party in Peckham a few months later. After the bike was taken by the Monson gang, Showkey was followed to a nearby block of flats where he took refuge. But the court heard he posted a series of taunts on social media site Snapchat from inside the flats, which was seen as a "violation" of Monson territory. In the clashes that followed later, Myron was stabbed five times in his legs and died two hours later in hospital. The court heard today that Lukelo-Mami's father strangled his mother to death while they were living in France. Richards, of Camplin Street, New Cross, Lukelo-Mami, of Bexley Road, Erith, and Risch, of Daubeney Tower, Lewisham, denied murder and the manslaughter alternative. Kennedy and Edmonds, of Daubeney Tower, Bowditch, and Reich denied perverting the course of justice.... read more
