New farming experiment in London: underground growing story image
LONDON (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Property in London is some of the most expensive there is, so some farmers are going far underground to grow.

In the damp, dark, rusty tunnels of London, more than 100 feet below the ground, an innovative farming experiment is raising eyebrows.

The tunnels have a constant temperature of around 60 degrees, and the farmers can grow from 7 to 21 days.

Right now, they have one tunnel with 2 1/2 acres of space.

They are growing garlic shelves, pea shoots, and other products, with the potential to expand.

NBC FIRES DONALD TRUMP

NEW YORK (AP) -- You're fired! That's NBC's message for The Donald. The network is cutting all business ties to Donald Trump. NBC is pulling the plug on the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants. The move follows Trump's comments about Mexican immigrants made during his announcement that he's running for the GOP presidential nomination. NBC and producer Mark Burnett are exploring ways to continue "Celebrity Apprentice" with a new host. Trump counters that NBC is "is weak, and like everybody else is trying to be politically correct." Trump says he might sue the network. During his presidential kickoff speech, Trump said Mexican immigrants are "bringing drugs, they're bringing crime, they're rapists and some, I assume, are good people."

EMILIA CLARKE-CLOSET VALLEY GIRL

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Fans of "Game of Thrones" know Emilia Clarke as the Mother of Dragons. But she's also a closest Valley Girl. The British actress told Jimmy Kimmel last night she put on a cap and adopted a Valley Girl persona to shop at Home Depot. Clarke demonstrated her American accent for Kimmel, who says it's "actually very good." Clarke is walking with a limp as she recovers from a fractured hip. She jokes she broke her hip by break dancing with her "Terminator Genisys" co-star, Arnold Schwarzenegger. The fifth Terminator movie opens this week.

EL JAMES TAKES FIFTY SHADES OF HEAT ON TWITTER

NEW YORK (AP) -- Twitter had a bit of fun yesterday at the expense of EL James. The hashtag "AskELJames" trended nationwide as the "Fifty Shades of Grey" writer took questions. As you might expect some of the questions can't be repeated on-the air. But here are some queries that make the cut:

-- "Is it true that you're actually just a burlap sack full of bad ideas and spiders?"

-- "When do you think your writer's block will kick in? Signed Ev R Hopeful"
