dead and gone? In 1962 Chuck Berry was sent to

prison for having sexual relations with a 14-year-old girl. When he was

which represents health For the first time, NHS Providers

and patient demand on the increase. The budget earlier this

month included new funding for social care and

investment in A units in England. NHS Providers representing hospitals

:04:41.:04:44.

and other trusts says that may ease some of the pressure

:04:45.:04:50.

but there will still be a yawning gap in the resources needed just

:04:51.:04:53.

to keep services ticking over. This is the first time

about whether more economic pressure would force North Korea

to renounce nuclear weapons. And it's suspicious of American

suspect was the children's father and he worked in a nearby hotel.

:09:46.:09:50.

Neighbours say they have been left shocked and saddened by the events

:09:51.:09:54.

that took place last night. They described the kids as sweet and

:09:55.:09:56.

belonging to a quiet family. It was in this top floor flat in

:09:57.:10:03.

Finsbury Park where a one-year-old boy was killed and his twin sister

:10:04.:10:08.

was left critically injured in what neighbours have described as a

:10:09.:10:12.

brutal attack. This morning police officers and forensic teams

:10:13.:10:17.

continued to search the property on Wilberforce Road, collecting

:10:18.:10:21.

evidence and conducting door-to-door inquiries. It was just after 11pm

:10:22.:10:26.

last night the police were called by neighbours who had heard the

:10:27.:10:30.

children's mother screaming that her babies had been hurt. I asked her,

:10:31.:10:35.

can I help you? Do you want me to call the police or the ambulance for

:10:36.:10:39.

you? She didn't say anything and I asked her, what's wrong? What's

:10:40.:10:45.

happened? She just said, my kids, and she was crying. Officers are

:10:46.:10:49.

searching for this man. It's understood he was the children's

:10:50.:10:53.

father. The police say the 33-year-old was at the flat just

:10:54.:10:57.

before the twins were found and left before the police arrived. I would

:10:58.:11:02.

like to urge the public's health in this matter -- help. A man who is

:11:03.:11:11.

resident at that address in Wilberforce Road disappeared shortly

:11:12.:11:14.

after the incident was discovered. We would like the public's help in

The Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron has accused Theresa May

:11:35.:11:40.

of pursuing nationalist and protectionist policies

:11:41.:11:42.

that would find favour with Donald Trump and

:11:43.:11:44.

Addressing his party's spring conference he said Mrs May's

:11:45.:11:47.

decision to seek a hard Brexit would badly damage the British

:11:48.:11:49.

economy and went against the Conservatives' traditional

:11:50.:11:51.

If I was a business person who'd given money to today's Conservative

:11:52.:11:59.

You were sold a free-market internationalist pro-business party.

:12:00.:12:03.

What you got is protectionism, nationalism, economic vandalism.

The RAC is warning that most drivers buying new cars will face increased

:12:08.:12:16.

Among the worst hit will be those purchasing more environmentally

:12:17.:12:20.

friendly hybrid vehicles - some of which will attract road

:12:21.:12:22.

Our business correspondent Joe Lynam explains.

:12:23.:12:43.

And pay less tax but from next month that's set to change with road tax

:12:44.:12:51.

or Vehicle Excise Duty increasing for newer, greener cars and some

:12:52.:12:55.

customers are snapping up hybrid cars before the taxes go up. Already

:12:56.:12:59.

we're hearing that dealerships have been very, very busy in the build-up

:13:00.:13:03.

to this change. People are trying to get in there before they are hit

:13:04.:13:07.

with the extra cost. What we are expecting anecdotally afterwards is

:13:08.:13:12.

will be a lull, particularly hitting hybrid vehicle sales, because one of

:13:13.:13:15.

the incentives for buying them will have been taken away.

:13:16.:13:18.

From April the 1st most cars will pay an initial charge depending on

:13:19.:13:24.

their emissions, and then ?140 a year after that. Hybrid cars will

:13:25.:13:29.

get a ?10 rebate but still pay ?130 compared with nothing at the moment

:13:30.:13:32.

and cars costing ?40,000 or more will face an additional premium. The

:13:33.:13:38.

new duties will have no affect on cars already on UK roads. The

:13:39.:13:44.

Government insists that the new Vehicle Excise Duty will be fair to

:13:45.:13:48.

motorists and improve air quality by encouraging the take-up of cleaner

:13:49.:13:53.

vehicles. But will the new charges deter drivers are already on cars

:13:54.:13:58.

with low CO2 emissions? I think it's probably a good idea to try and

:13:59.:14:02.

encourage people to buy environmentally friendly vehicles if

:14:03.:14:04.

at all possible so I would suggest it is better to charge lower road

:14:05.:14:09.

tax. What's the point in having low emission vehicles if you are going

:14:10.:14:13.

to charge more tax? Ridiculous. It would be the environment I would be

:14:14.:14:17.

worried about. This is a plug-in hybrid vehicle meaning when it is

:14:18.:14:20.

running on its battery it doesn't emit any noxious gases at all but if

:14:21.:14:24.

you buy this vehicle from April you'll be paying ?440 a year more

:14:25.:14:30.

than if you bought it today. Some believe that that will dis-

:14:31.:14:35.

incentivise people from buying green cars. Jo Lynam, BBC News.

Now it's been three years since Vladimir Putin sent special

:14:39.:14:40.

forces into Crimea in Ukraine, leading to its annexation by Russia.

:14:41.:14:45.

It was a move that sparked sanctions from the West and a revival

:14:46.:14:48.

Our correspondent Steve Rosenberg has been back to the Crimean

:14:49.:14:53.

capital, Simferopol, to see if attitudes

:14:54.:14:57.

Blessed by nature, beset with contention.

:14:58.:15:00.

It's three years since Russia annexed the

:15:01.:15:09.

peninsula from Ukraine pushing East and West into a new Cold War.

:15:10.:15:12.

Today Moscow is cementing its presence

:15:13.:15:17.

with a bridge that will bind Crimea to the Russian mainland.

:15:18.:15:21.

With its military too, Russia's moved its

:15:22.:15:23.

And wherever you go in Crimea you're left in no doubt who's in charge.

:15:24.:15:35.

She chides Western leaders who disagree.

:15:36.:15:41.

We don't understand them because we are already for three

:15:42.:15:44.

We changed our rules, documents, everything, and our soul

:15:45.:15:51.

And I even have the T-shirt with Putin and the words

:15:52.:16:04.

are "In Putin we trust" like "In God we trust".

:16:05.:16:07.

Moscow admits its takeover of Crimea was a military operation.

:16:08.:16:10.

Days later after a referendum, not recognised internationally, Crimea

:16:11.:16:17.

Svitlana Gavrilenko had opposed the annexation but three

:16:18.:16:23.

years on her perspective on Russia has changed.

:16:24.:16:29.

They think everyone here is a traitor, even if you were ever

:16:30.:16:41.

pro-Ukrainian, or you are now pro-Ukrainian, you are still a

:16:42.:16:44.

The White House says it expects Moscow to return Crimea.

:16:45.:16:51.

It's almost inconceivable that Vladimir Putin

:16:52.:16:53.

and hand this peninsula back to Ukraine.

:16:54.:17:08.

For one thing, the Kremlin doesn't do U-turns and reclaiming

:17:09.:17:10.

this land for Russia, well, President Putin

:17:11.:17:12.

would regard that as

:17:13.:17:13.

part of his legacy, and Moscow insists that most of the people who

:17:14.:17:16.

Since annexation Crimean Tatars, an ethnic

:17:17.:17:23.

minority that makes up 12% of the population here,

:17:24.:17:25.

Their governing body has been banned, human rights groups accuse

:17:26.:17:30.

Moscow of creating a climate of repression.

:17:31.:17:40.

This man is desperate for information about his son.

:17:41.:17:43.

A Tartar activist, he was abducted ten

:17:44.:17:45.

he was seized by men in uniform.

:17:46.:17:57.

Not knowing where his son is is driving him to despair.

:17:58.:18:01.

His heart, he told me, isn't made of steel.

:18:02.:18:03.

And yet this Crimean spring feels calmer

:18:04.:18:14.

Most people here don't think about sovereignty

:18:15.:18:19.

They can't predict the future so navigating the present

:18:20.:18:26.

Football and Celtic are within one win of their sixth successive

:18:27.:18:38.

A 2-1 win over Dundee gives them a 25-point lead

:18:39.:18:43.

at the top of the table, with just nine games remaining.

:18:44.:18:46.

They will be champions if they beat Hearts in a fortnight.

In the Premier League, four of the teams battling it out

:18:52.:18:54.

for a Champions League place are in action today.

:18:55.:18:59.

Liverpool are currently playing Manchester City and have taken a 1-0

:19:34.:19:38.

Mauricio Pochettino's men held on, their place in the top four now

looking secure. Among the chasing pack are Manchester United and they

went ahead at Middlesbrough through Marouane Fellaini's head. Jesse

Lingard doubled the lead, and how. Lingard has an eye for the
