London Lite Thursday, 27 August 2009 District line faces closure threat as trains miss lights Tube risks legal action over safety Fast talkAninstant interview with... roni size BRISTOLS 39-year-old drum&bass superstar is playing Get Loaded In The Park on Clapham Common on Sunday, where hell showcase tunes from his new Reprazent album. DJ-ing with vinyl or laptop? I love vinyl because it has a great sound but its so heavy to cart around. With programs like Traktor Scratch I can use turntables to control mixing on my laptop. I embrace all new music technology. Dubstep or hip hop? It has to be dubstep because its fresh and new and Im all about moving forward. Goldie or Grooverider? Ive admired Groove for a long time but Goldie is such an outrageous character -- a true original -- and Im fascinated by him. Critical acclaim or commercial success? Critical acclaim and the respect of my peers means far more to me than selling tons of records. Hard partying or bed early? Ha, first in the club and last out, thats my motto. Lily Allen or La Roux? They both have famous parents [Lilys dad is actor Keith and La Rouxs mum is Trudie Goodwin from The Bill], but Ill go for Lily (left) as Keith made Vindaloo, which I love. Id like to make a drum&bass version.

Underground bosses have been told to dramatically improve safety on the District line after three trains passed red danger signals and key procedures were not followed. Two incidents were on consecutive days. T h e R a i l w a y Inspectorate, which is responsible for safe Tube travel, told managers to come up with a plan to prevent more signals being passed at danger or face legal action. The ulti- mate sanction could be to close the line if they fail to comply with the improvement notice from the regulators. The inspectors also uncovered evidence which appar- ently shows that the official report of one incident differed from automatic voice recordings of drivers and signalling staff at the time. The first incident earlier this year was at West Kensington on 23 February. A train set off an automatic braking system, which means the signal is treated as being passed at red even if it is not. Points were not secured, risking a derailment, and commu- nications were poor. The next day, at Earls Court, a westbound service passed through a signal at red in error. On 17 March a train was ordered to pass a red signal after a points failure without the authorisation of a senior manager. After each signal was passed Tube workers apparently failed to follow strict rules, including secur- ing points. A letter from Quentin Cole, the railway inspector who oversees Transport for London, told senior Tube manager Jill Collis to come up with an improve- ment plan by 15 September. A LITTLE black dress, expensive stiletto heels and huge dark sunglasses -- a perfect outfit for any shopping spree. But only if youre Victoria Beckham, who could not be mistaken as she tottered around designer store Barneys in Los Angeles yesterday in her trademark attire. Beckham, 35, was with her little sister Louise. After about an hour though, the sisters left empty-handed.
