Story one

Further concerns over the debt-ridden health trust serving Redbridge have been expressed, after it emerged that the number of children's beds at King George Hospital were reduced in 2010.

Story two

Area committees have been scrapped by Redbridge council.

The Labour group, which took power at last month's election, vowed to end the meetings, which provide an opportunity for people to raise concerns with councillors and have some decision-making powers, to save money.

Story three

Tesco has launched an investigation after out-of-date baby milk was sold at a supermarket months after a carton from the same store made a toddler ill.

Story four

The health trusts running the two main hospitals serving the area have by far the biggest debts in London, raising fears for patient safety, jobs and services.

NHS figures show Barts Health, which runs Whipps Cross Hospital in Leytonstone, and Barking Havering and Redbridge Hospitals Trust (BHRUT), in charge of King George Hospital in Goodmayes, are both about £39million in the red.

Story five

The owners of a nightclub closed due to crime and anti-social behaviour are facing a winding up order over £127,000 owed in fees incurred during a long-running legal battle.

Redbridge council has announced it will seek the order against Funky Mojoe in High Road, South Woodford, at a court hearing on Monday.
