London Lite Monday, 12 October 2009 11 forensic teams prepare for another terrorist attack 1-a-mile to drive in the capitalPlanforlevyontopofC-charge These chilling scenes show the horror of an explosion on the Tube -- as experienced by police forensic teams in a training exercise. More than 200 British Transport Police and Met officers were involved in the rehearsal, which used lifelike latex bodies and other props to create the scene of devastation. The exercise was aimed at preparing the teams for situations such as the 7/7 terror attacks, when lack of integration between criminal investigation and body identification teams led to delays in identifying victims, causing distress to relatives. The father of one 7/7 victim told of his agonising 10-day wait.

Katona, 29, was arrested in August in Warrington, Cheshire, after it was alleged that she attacked her accountant, David McHugh. whose 24-year-old daughter Carrie was killed by the explosion at Aldgate, spoke to the officers to emphasise the importance of speeding up identification process. he said: We were on our own and didnt know who to contact. It was the not knowing, not having the information. Drivers could be forced to pay more than 1 for every mile they drive on the capitals busiest roads under a scheme devised by the Mayor. The levy, which will be charged on top of the congestion charge, is part of Boris Johnsons plan to plug a multi- million-pound hole in the Transport for London budget. if previous government proposals are followed the cost could be up to 1.34 a mile. someone with a 12-mile round trip to work in central London during the day could pay a total of 20. Cars would be tracked by satellite and charged for entering the most congested areas. The plan would raise significant revenue for the Mayor, pictured, and if it works would open up busy areas to cyclists and improve bus journey times. it would also reduce car pollution. The proposals were outlined in the Mayors Transport strategy, released today, which sets out his vision for the future of roads, Tubes and buses. A spokesman said: There are no firm figures in place, but it is something that Boris is looking at a n d t a l k i n g t o [Transport secretary] Lord Adonis about. Local government expert Tony Travers said the road pric- ing costs were likely to be similar to those proposed by Alistair Darling in 2005 when he was transport minister. He said: For this to be effective people have got to feel it and therefore the amount needs to be substantial. The busiest areas in London would be targeted. These include edgware road, Marble Arch, Hyde Park Corner, embankment and busy suburban areas such as Croydon and Greenwich. The news came as the Governments climate change committee recommended UK road pricing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The Government has previously drawn up plans for charging from 2p per mile on uncongested roads to 1.34 on the busiest highways. Mr Johnson plans to abolish the western exten- sion of the congestion zone, which would lose TfL up to 70m a year. The new charges would help plug this gap and contribute towards filling a 2.25bn black hole in TfLs finances.
