The justice system is shrinking away from press scrutiny as the years go by.

Some of Extinction Rebellion's actions this weekend won't be popular - but all of them have the Hackney Gazette's full support.

A bus driver is in hospital after a collision between a 73 bus and a minicab in Stoke Newington Church Street.

Nine members of the same Hackney family have launched a project for neighbours to get their voices heard on the issue of knife crime.

Hackney South and Shoreditch MP Meg Hillier told Parliament this afternoon she was "very disturbed" by Hackney New School losing its fourth headteacher in a little over two years.

If you think you're having a bad week, spare a thought for Hackney New School.

It is easy for me to sit at a desk and say that anyone who has information about Elyon Poku's death should come forward.

The point of redesigning Silicon Roundabout (no longer a roundabout) and Highbury Corner (quite frankly not a corner) wasn't to make them easier to drive around.

Last week I had the honour of opening the Q&A at a town hall community event to launch UK Black Pride in Hackney.

The young men who rescued their neighbours from a fire were so modest it ended up being quite hard to do our jobs.

The sight of so many dead fish in the River Lea is heartbreaking.

Hot Chip's colourful catalogue of bratty but lovable synth-pop clearly keeps the rain at bay, because the moment the quintet leave the All Points East stage the heavens open, and Victoria Park becomes a swamp of rave kids and panic.

Victoria line services through Islington were ground to a halt this evening when an errant dog escaped onto the tracks.

Notoriously, Iran doesn't recognise dual nationality - so it won't make a lot of difference to officials there that Crouch End woman Aras Amiri, unlike Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, has no British passport.

The row about road closures in Stoke Newington has been gaining pace for nearly 18 months.

As I write this, Extinction Rebellion's protests in central London have entered their second week. More than 1,000 people have been arrested and a few dozen have been charged with low-level crimes.

A number of people have contacted us this week - mainly but not entirely through social media - to complain about Haggerston Park hosting a black pride event over the summer.

Cllr Sharon Patrick's report into contractors playing the system to squeeze extra cash out of Hackney Council gives the lie to the notion that outsourcing represents good value for the public.

Journalism isn't diverse enough.

Like many, I watched footage of the collapsing building in Stoke Newington High Street in horror.

I can understand the indignation from some Labour members about the national party being accused of institutional racism: certainly, it is gruelling to be labelled racist by parts of the media that have condoned and perpetuated some of the most vile and offensive anti-immigration rhetoric, and by politicians whose own record on equality is appalling.

The row over allegations of racist and sexist bullying at Hackney Council's Hillman Street call centre isn't going away.

I admire Jon Burke's optimism when faced with a near-empty room.

The video of Keith Charles storming a burning building to rescue an 80-year-old woman is as heartening as it is terrifying.
