The Prime Minister gives her clearest indication yet that leaving

:00:00.:00:07.

the EU is likely to mean leaving the single market.

:00:08.:00:11.

In her first television interview of the year,

:00:12.:00:14.

Theresa May says a new relationship is not about retaining

:00:15.:00:17.

Often people talk in terms as if somehow leaving the EU but somehow

:00:18.:00:31.

keeping bits of the EU. As Britain looks to relationships

:00:32.:00:34.

beyond Europe, Boris Johnson has been meeting members

:00:35.:00:37.

of Donald Trump's team in New York. Also on the programme: Four Israeli

:00:38.:00:39.

soldiers are killed after a lorry is driven into them in Jerusalem -

:00:40.:00:43.

the Palestinian driver is shot dead. Snow and sub-zero temperatures lead

:00:44.:00:49.

to deaths across Europe - from Poland to Italy

:00:50.:00:52.

and the Greek Islands. The Queen attends church

:00:53.:00:57.

at Sandringham - her first public appearance since recovering

:00:58.:01:00.

from a heavy cold. And who'll waltz away with

:01:01.:01:07.

the awards at the Golden Globes - and will it be any clue

:01:08.:01:11.

to Oscar success? The Prime Minister has said

:01:12.:01:33.

the Government will take back control of Britain's borders

:01:34.:01:36.

when we leave the EU and appeared to acknowledge that

:01:37.:01:39.

a new relationship is likely to mean In her first interview

:01:40.:01:42.

of the New Year, Theresa May said we won't be keeping "bits" of our EU

:01:43.:01:47.

membership and that she doesn't see trade and immigration

:01:48.:01:51.

as a binary - either/or issue. Mrs May said she'd be setting out

:01:52.:01:55.

details of her Brexit strategy Here's our Political

:01:56.:01:58.

Correspondent, Carole Walker. After six months in power, the Prime

:01:59.:02:12.

Minister has begun to signal what she wants from the Brexit

:02:13.:02:18.

negotiations. Brexit means Brexit. She knows that no longer satisfies

:02:19.:02:24.

anyone. She denied muddled thinking, said Britain would take back control

:02:25.:02:28.

of its borders and appeared to him that would mean leaving the single

:02:29.:02:34.

market. People talk in terms of somehow leaving the EU but keeping

:02:35.:02:40.

bits of the EU. We are leaving, coming out so the question is, what

:02:41.:02:46.

is the right relationship for the UK to have with the European Union when

:02:47.:02:50.

we are outside. The campaigners on both side of the argument took that

:02:51.:02:56.

as a clear signal we will leave the single market. Labour are not

:02:57.:03:00.

satisfied. She had one question put to her three times and still not

:03:01.:03:07.

answered it which was RU prioritising immigration over access

:03:08.:03:12.

to the single market. I think now from the triggering of Article 50

:03:13.:03:17.

and the most important negotiations for a generation, we need more

:03:18.:03:22.

clarity. But Nicola Sturgeon want any move to take Scotland out of the

:03:23.:03:27.

single market could trigger a second referendum on independence. They

:03:28.:03:33.

will be making a big mistake if they think I am nothing. We have to ask

:03:34.:03:40.

ourselves if we are happy with the kind of country we want to be

:03:41.:03:46.

determined by a right-wing power. Theresa May does not want her time

:03:47.:03:51.

in Downing Street to be defined by Brexit and she stressed that

:03:52.:03:54.

referendum vote was a demand for wider change to the way the country

:03:55.:04:00.

is run, so she is promising a programme of social reform which she

:04:01.:04:03.

says will help not just the poorest but every level of society. It is

:04:04.:04:10.

about us recognising our obligations as citizens within the communities

:04:11.:04:16.

we have here in the UK. It is about recognising that there is a role for

:04:17.:04:21.

government but it needs to ensure it is acting effectively in those areas

:04:22.:04:26.

it should be taking action. She says her government will tackle the

:04:27.:04:31.

housing crisis, fix a broken markets and change attitudes to mental

:04:32.:04:35.

health. Her language is ambitious, she will be judged on whether her

:04:36.:04:39.

policies deliver the changes she is promising.

:04:40.:04:45.

Mrs May was asked about Donald Trump and we are told the Foreign

:04:46.:04:51.

Secretary has been there with his team. The government is stepping up

:04:52.:04:56.

the efforts to build a relationship with the President-elect and his

:04:57.:05:03.

team. Tonight Donald Trump, Boris Johnson had three hours of talks

:05:04.:05:07.

with key members of Donald Trump's team in Trump Tower. They included

:05:08.:05:14.

the President-elect's son-in-law and his chief strategic and I am told

:05:15.:05:18.

these discussions were frank but positive with both sides stressing

:05:19.:05:23.

the importance of the special relationship, laying the groundwork

:05:24.:05:26.

for the Prime Minister to go visit the new president later this month.

:05:27.:05:33.

Theresa May herself was talking about the importance of the special

:05:34.:05:38.

relationship today. She said she had good conversations on the phone with

:05:39.:05:41.

Donald Trump but she said she still found some of his comments about

:05:42.:05:46.

women in the past and acceptable. You do get the sense the government

:05:47.:05:51.

is having to work hard to make up the ground here and there is no

:05:52.:05:56.

suggestion Boris Johnson will meet Donald himself, whereas Michael

:05:57.:06:01.

Fallon arch, the former Ukip leader has had three meetings and got his

:06:02.:06:04.

seat booked for the inauguration ceremony.

:06:05.:06:05.

Four Israeli soldiers were killed in Jerusalem today

:06:06.:06:07.

after a Palestinian man drove a lorry into a group

:06:08.:06:09.

The driver, said by Prime Minister Netanyahu to be a supporter

:06:10.:06:15.

of so-called Islamic State, was shot dead at the scene.

:06:16.:06:18.

In the last 16 months there have been a series of attacks

:06:19.:06:21.

by Palestinians on Israelis - this was the deadliest

:06:22.:06:23.

Our correspondent Yolande Knell reports from Jerusalem.

:06:24.:06:35.

A hazy view of Jerusalem. This is what soldiers on a training course

:06:36.:06:44.

had come to see. Security camera footage shows two groups. The one in

:06:45.:06:49.

the background has just got off a coach when this happens. Look at the

:06:50.:06:53.

top left of the screen. The lorry drives that the soldiers at high

:06:54.:07:00.

speed and hits them. Then it backs up, apparently trying to crush more

:07:01.:07:04.

people before the driver is shot dead. Of all the soldiers of died

:07:05.:07:13.

were in their early 20s. More than a dozen were wounded. Witnesses who

:07:14.:07:16.

saw the aftermath spoke of their shock. I just saw the truck going

:07:17.:07:23.

from the road onto the sidewalk and just hitting the soldiers. It took

:07:24.:07:28.

me some time to understand it was a terror attack. The attacker was a

:07:29.:07:35.

Palestinian age 28 from a nearby area of east Jerusalem. You can

:07:36.:07:39.

still see the skid marks in the dirt here. This is the very spot where do

:07:40.:07:44.

soldiers were killed. There has been an upsurge in Palestinian attacks

:07:45.:07:51.

but this has been one of the deadliest scene. Visiting the scene

:07:52.:07:58.

the Prime Minister said this was similar to recent attacks in Europe

:07:59.:08:02.

and that it could have been inspired by the so-called Islamic State.

:08:03.:08:07.

TRANSLATION: We know the identity of the

:08:08.:08:13.

attacker. He was a supporter of the Islamic State. We know there has

:08:14.:08:17.

been a series of terror attacks. There could be a connection between

:08:18.:08:20.

them from France to Berlin and now Jerusalem. Israel has blamed

:08:21.:08:29.

previous attacks on incitement by Palestinian officials and social

:08:30.:08:33.

media. Palestinian leaders say they have been driven by anger after more

:08:34.:08:38.

than 20 years of on and off peace talks have failed to deliver an

:08:39.:08:40.

independent Palestinian state. And Yolande is live

:08:41.:08:42.

for us now in Jerusalem. The Israeli cabinet met

:08:43.:08:44.

in response to this attack. The Israeli cabinet has been meeting

:08:45.:08:55.

and we understand that they have decided in a controversial form of

:08:56.:08:59.

deterrent to demolish the house of this lorry driver. Israeli police

:09:00.:09:05.

have moved into the man's neighbourhood. They have made a

:09:06.:09:09.

number of arrests including members of the man's family. The Israeli

:09:10.:09:14.

cabinet is saying it for now detained without trial those who it

:09:15.:09:20.

finds to be sympathising with Islamic State although it has to be

:09:21.:09:28.

said that actions inspired by Islamic State have been rare. What

:09:29.:09:34.

we have seen over the past 16 months in these Palestinian attacks, most

:09:35.:09:39.

have been nice attacks. There have been some shootings as well. About

:09:40.:09:44.

40 Israelis have been killed during that period and more than 230

:09:45.:09:49.

Palestinians have been shot dead. Israel says most of them were

:09:50.:09:54.

carrying out attacks, some were killed in clashes and in protest as

:09:55.:10:00.

well, but in the past few weeks, it had seemed there had been a big lull

:10:01.:10:04.

in these attacks and what will concern people now is any idea that

:10:05.:10:05.

that could be changing. Here, Israel's ambassador to Britain

:10:06.:10:09.

has apologised after a member of his staff was secretly recorded

:10:10.:10:11.

saying he wanted to "take Shai Masot, a political advisor,

of politics. But there is relief from the subjects with a simple

story harking back to the golden age of film. Which will prevail, we will

find out soon. That is all from me. Time for the news wherever you are.
