A great time had by all at my local coffee morning, today. Pleasure to invite local residents to share a cuppa and hear about their local issues. Thanks to local organisations and the police for coming along and listening to residents.
Today, I brought together officials from Wandsworth Council and Wandsworth Police to discuss what we can do to make Tooting Broadway a safer, cleaner and more vibrant place to live and work.
Tonight I joined Andrew Marr on LBC to talk about the appalling hospital conditions doctors face in Palestinian hospitals.
The Tories have scrapped the Mental Health Act - failing thousands of patients.
Labour must seize the opportunity to modernise mental health legislation, with the Joint Committee's recommendations in mind.

Tonight, I joined with representatives of all faiths and none at the BATCA annual peace ceremony in Tooting.
Thank you to everyone for their prayers of peace. They are needed now more than ever and I am so proud to represent such a wonderful, caring community.
Today, I read out the names of the fallen and laid a wreath at St Nicholas Church in Tooting with local councillors, Rex Osborn, Kate Forbes and Kemi Akinola and members of our emergency services.
Since the horrific terrorist attacks on Israel in October, more than 1,000 incidents of antisemitic hate crimes have been reported to Community Secure Trust.
Today, I visited their headquarters in London to see the work they are doing to tackle antisemitism. It is a stain on our society. It must be combatted and those who perpetrate it must face the full force of the law.
Today, the Government have scrapped their pledge to reform the Mental Health Act.
More than six years of reports, campaigning and hard work has gone down the drain.
Last year, I sat on the Joint Committee on the Draft Mental Health Bill.
There was overwhelming cross-party support for reforming the Act.
To this day, the Government has failed to respond to the committee's recommendations.
Earlier this year, the Conservatives scrapped their own 10-year mental health plan.
Dither, delay and failure is on form with the Tories' approach to tackling the crisis in mental health services.
Black people are five times more likely to be detained under the Mental Health Act.
The Tories have scrapped a once in a generation opportunity to tackle this burning injustice.
Last month, I challenged the Health Minister to commit to reforming the Mental Health Act, her response was less than insightful.
It is disappointing that the Tories continue to bury their heads in the sand and neglect mental health services. They are out of ideas and it's costing patients their lives.
Only Labour can provide the transformation needed to improve services.
