The building of a new FA football facility and multi-screen cinema complex showing the latest English language and Bollywood blockbusters were among the most read stories this week.
Elsewhere, our stories on the tragedy in Stockley Road, West Drayton , also attracted a lot of interest, as did a guilty manslaughter plea following an attack in Hayes, and Harrow house of horrors, which saw up to 40 people crammed into a three-bedroom home with just the one toilet.
Take a look at the top five stories this week.
Stockley Road crash
A driver died on the a serious collision (see video above) close to the M4 in West Drayton on Friday (April 28).
The incident happened in the busy Stockley Road, near to Cherry Lane Roundabout and Stockley Road bypass, at 5.24am.
The road was closed for several hours with Transport for London (TfL) advising motorists to stay clear of the area.
A schizophrenic teenager charged with the murder of an 18-year-old boy in Hayes pleaded guilty to manslaughter.
Idris Hassan admitted attacking Lance Scott Walker at the hostel where they were both staying in Gledwood Gardens on August 15 2016.
Hassan, also 18, entered a guilty plea to manslaughter by diminished responsibility at the Old Bailey on Monday (April 24).
The plea was accepted by the Crown in light of three psychiatric reports.
Hassan was handed a hospital order with a restriction order without limit of time for the public’s protection by Judge Topolski.
New football pitches and facilities
Work on a multi-million pound sport facility at Rectory Park in Northolt has begun.
The facility, which will become the new home of Middlesex FA, comes after Ealing Council secured £4.88 million from the FA, Middlesex FA, London Marathon Charitable Trust and Sport England.
It is part of the FA’s Parklife grassroots football scheme, which aims to boost sporting opportunities in communities.
Harrow house of horror
Up to 40 people were found crammed into a squalid three-bedroom house , with just one toilet.
Harrow Council made the grim discovery when housing enforcement officers searched the home in Edgware in March, and found 17 people sleeping on back to back mattresses.
The council believes that up to 40 people, mostly Eastern Europeans, were living inside the property, before they carried out the dawn raid.
A Harrow-based letting agent could now face prosecution after the home was searched on suspicion of overcrowding and being let without a HMO (House of Multiple Occupancy) licence.
Cineworld Arla site
Cineworld is preparing to open its new cinema at the contentious Arla site development later this year.
The big screen giants will open at the former Express Dairies site in July as part of a £100 million scheme to revamp the area.
The South Ruislip will feature 11 screens showing the latest Hollywood and Bollywood releases, a Starbucks and a Baskin Robbins ice cream counter.
The Arla site development includes a new Asda store and petrol station, five restaurants, as well as a total of 163 one, two, or three-bedroom homes.
More than 500 jobs will be created from the scheme with Cineworld recruiting 59 jobs alone.
