Ilford Recorder and Romford Recorder reporters Ralph Blackburn and Niall Joyce joined Time 107.5 FM’s Steve Allen for this week’s East London News Review.

The trio discussed the fatal stabbing in The Brewery in Romford last night.

A 20-year-old died and four teens have been arrested on suspicion of murder.

Ralph, Niall and Steve talked about the fears that come with someone being killed in such a public and commonly used place.

Next up was the fantastic story where a pharmacy delivery driver saved the life of 85-year-old Roger Rose.

Roger had fallen asleep with the gas on, and Laura Bell kept banging on the door until he woke up.

Steve also let the listeners in on a fascinating fact about how gas gets its smell.

Finally the three talked about the cyber attack on NHS trusts in the area.

Remember you can listen to the show live each week on Time 107.5 FM on a Friday at 2.15pm.
