We should have somebody leading for the UK who clearly believes

:00:17.:00:22.

that the outcome can be beneficial to the UK.

:00:23.:00:25.

I think that makes us all believe what we already suspected,

:00:26.:00:27.

which is the Government does not have a plan.

We'll have more on this growing Brexit spat.

:01:22.:01:45.

Good afternoon, and welcome to the BBC News at One.

:01:46.:01:48.

The UK's outgoing ambassador to the European Union,

:01:49.:01:50.

Sir Ivan Rogers, has attacked the Government for 'muddled

:01:51.:01:52.

thinking' and ill-founded arguments in its approach to Brexit.

:01:53.:01:57.

Sir Ivan, who resigned yesterday, said he didn't know what ministers'

:01:58.:01:59.

In his resignation letter - seen by the BBC - he urged

:02:00.:02:05.

colleagues in Brussels not to be afraid to speak the truth

:02:06.:02:08.

Our political correspondent, Ian Watson, reports.

:02:09.:02:13.

Camera shy in public, outspoken in private.

:02:14.:02:16.

Sir Ivan Rogers has exited his role as Britain's EU ambassador.

:02:17.:02:21.

When the BBC revealed his private advice that a trade deal with the EU

:02:22.:02:24.

could take ten years, he was attacked by some Leave

:02:25.:02:27.

Diplomats are supposed to be, well, diplomatic.

:02:28.:02:33.

But in his resignation e-mail, he is anything but.

:02:34.:02:38.

He tells his staff, I hope you will continue to challenge ill

:02:39.:02:41.

founded arguments and muddled thinking, and that you will

:02:42.:02:43.

never be afraid to speak the truth to those in power.

:02:44.:02:55.

So until a recently faceless bureaucrat in Brussels resigns,

:02:56.:02:57.

why should that matter here in Britain?

:02:58.:02:59.

Well, the clock is ticking on the UK's departure from the EU.

:03:00.:03:02.

The process has to get underway by the end of March.

:03:03.:03:04.

Now, it was Sir Ivan Rogers' job to find out and then report back

:03:05.:03:07.

the thinking of other EU member states before these crucial

:03:08.:03:10.

The Government can't yet tell us a timescale and some

:03:11.:03:17.

former Whitehall mandarins say his experience

:03:18.:03:19.

Ivan Rogers leaving at this time so shortly before

:03:20.:03:25.

the triggering of Article 50, is a loss to the Government

:03:26.:03:27.

because he is a man of great experience and expertise in European

:03:28.:03:30.

And we need that sort of experience to take forward the negotiations.

:03:31.:03:36.

You know her catchphrase by now, 'Brexit means Brexit'.

:03:37.:03:42.

But the most damaging accusation in Ivan Rogers' resignation letter

:03:43.:03:44.

is that perhaps she isn't so sure what it means after all.

:03:45.:03:53.

He says, 'We do not yet know what the government will set

:03:54.:03:56.

as negotiating objectives for the UK's relationship

:03:57.:03:57.

I think that makes us all believe what we already suspected,

:03:58.:04:01.

which is the government does not have a plan.

:04:02.:04:03.

It does not have clear objectives for these negotiations.

:04:04.:04:06.

That's quite different from not revealing your hand,

:04:07.:04:07.

It means you don't actually know what you want.

:04:08.:04:11.

David Cameron tried to negotiate a new deal with the EU

:04:12.:04:13.

Many Leave campaigners blamed Sir Ivan Rogers, their man

:04:14.:04:16.

in Brussels at the time, for not pushing the other EU states

:04:17.:04:19.

So they say his early departure as our EU

:04:20.:04:24.

It makes sense that as we go into what is an incredibly

:04:25.:04:33.

important negotiation, we should have somebody leading

:04:34.:04:34.

for the UK who clearly believes that the outcome can be beneficial

:04:35.:04:37.

I think it is fairly apparent that that was not Sir Ivan Rogers's view.

:04:38.:04:41.

Sir Ivan Rogers is likely to be replaced by another senior civil

:04:42.:04:44.

servant to negotiate our departure from the EU.

:04:45.:04:46.

But this diplomatic appointment has now become highly political.

:04:47.:04:50.

In a moment, we'll be speaking to our diplomatic

:04:51.:04:54.

But first, to Brussels, and our Europe correspondent,

:04:55.:04:57.

What do we make of this row there? Well, it is interesting. The

:04:58.:05:08.

resignation of an Ambassador is an unusual event in any town,

:05:09.:05:12.

particularly this town. They don't often comment. We have heard today

:05:13.:05:17.

from the Commission here, who have described Sir Ivan as a

:05:18.:05:22.

professional, knowledgeable person, they regret his loss. Interestingly,

:05:23.:05:28.

they say he always loyally defended the interests of his government and

:05:29.:05:34.

was not an easy interlocutor. In diplomatic speak, that is Saint Sir

:05:35.:05:38.

Ivan was not someone who would roll over easily, defending the UK with

:05:39.:05:46.

negotiations with the EU. He handles David Cameron's negotiations, so

:05:47.:05:49.

that is a clear signal what they think here. But you have to remember

:05:50.:05:55.

in his letter, he says British diplomats here do not yet know what

:05:56.:06:00.

the negotiating objectives will be, the structure of the team, and

:06:01.:06:05.

meanwhile, in this building, in the Commission, the EU side already have

:06:06.:06:09.

their negotiator and their team in place working out their strategy. Is

:06:10.:06:15.

Sir Ivan said in his letter, the opportunities to flow from Brexit

:06:16.:06:19.

will come from what sort of deal can be negotiated here.

:06:20.:06:24.

What does this tell us about the Government's state of readiness for

:06:25.:06:29.

the forthcoming negotiations? It is not ready, it lacks the chief

:06:30.:06:31.

negotiator who will be representing Britain as the Ambassador, so it

:06:32.:06:37.

needs a replacement for Sir Ivan as quickly as possible. There are a lot

:06:38.:06:41.

of candidates but it will be part hard to find somebody matches the

:06:42.:06:46.

scale of his experiences and his key relationships. The other point is

:06:47.:06:50.

the letter makes it very clear that in the view of Sir Ivan, that are

:06:51.:06:54.

not enough negotiators in Whitehall, they are in short supply, his

:06:55.:06:59.

negotiating team is not ready. He reveals the tensions within

:07:00.:07:02.

government over the vision for what Britain's future trade relationships

:07:03.:07:08.

may be, making it clear in his view, getting free trade is more than

:07:09.:07:15.

removing some authority, the EU. It requires future deals. What Sir Ivan

:07:16.:07:19.

is making clear is this is not just him whingeing about feeling ignored,

:07:20.:07:24.

in his view, substantial preparations need to be made so

:07:25.:07:29.

Britain can be ready in a couple of weeks when negotiations begin. The

:07:30.:07:31.

Prime Minister has said they will begin before the end of March.

:07:32.:07:35.

From Westminster and from Brussels, thank you both.

:07:36.:07:39.

The High Street chain Next is warning that uncertainty over

:07:40.:07:41.

Brexit will mean an "even tougher" year ahead, after a

:07:42.:07:44.

Shares dipped 14% at the start of trading, as the firm announced

:07:45.:07:49.

a drop in sales of 0.4% in the two months up to Christmas.

:07:50.:07:53.

Here's our business correspondent, Emma Simpson.

:07:54.:07:58.

Next, it is one of our biggest clothing chains, often seen as a

:07:59.:08:04.

bellwether of the High Street. And it has had a difficult winter, sales

:08:05.:08:09.

have fallen. Not a great start as retailers reveal how they fared over

:08:10.:08:15.

the all-important Christmas season. Undoubtedly, it is a big

:08:16.:08:17.

disappointment that Next has reported such weak figures as the

:08:18.:08:21.

first retailers report, it is one of the best on the High Street. So you

:08:22.:08:26.

would think overall, results will not be that great. Having said that,

:08:27.:08:32.

all retailers are not doing the same things, some are trading different

:08:33.:08:36.

strategies and there will be ups and downs. But it is difficult to avoid

:08:37.:08:39.

the conclusion that Christmas was pretty disappointing. 2016 was tough

:08:40.:08:46.

for many fashion retailers. Although consumer spending has been resilient

:08:47.:08:51.

since the Brexit vote, people are spending less on what they were and

:08:52.:08:55.

more on what they do, like eating out. The sales run, but there have

:08:56.:09:00.

been discounts all year, competition is cut-throat and we have been

:09:01.:09:07.

changing our shopping habits by spending more online. Next warns

:09:08.:09:10.

today things are going to get even tougher this year, a view shared by

:09:11.:09:15.

many in this industry. We have got all sorts of headwinds, we have got

:09:16.:09:19.

a year of national living wage, costs will be a lot higher. But the

:09:20.:09:25.

real, real challenge is going to be dealing with a sterling exchange

:09:26.:09:29.

rate that is 15% also lower than before the referendum. Next is

:09:30.:09:36.

warning its prices will go up by 5% this year as a result. Profits will

:09:37.:09:42.

take a hit. And inflation may mean consumers have less spare money to

:09:43.:09:46.

spend on clothes. In Manchester, some shoppers say they are cutting

:09:47.:09:51.

back. We will be raining it in in the New Year. Definitely spend the

:09:52.:09:55.

normal amount this Christmas, I didn't have to go crazy. Probably

:09:56.:09:58.

pull back on certain things and see what it is like. As ever in retail,

:09:59.:10:03.

there are winners and losers. The signs are John Lewis had a decent

:10:04.:10:09.

Christmas with a rise in sales in the final weeks. Before Christmas

:10:10.:10:12.

story will unfold in the coming days.

:10:13.:10:13.

An Israeli soldier has been found guilty of killing a Palestinian man

:10:14.:10:16.

It happened in Hebron last year, after the Palestinian,

:10:17.:10:20.

Abdul Fatah al-Sharif, had attacked an Israeli soldier.

:10:21.:10:22.

He was shot and wounded, but then shot again at close range

:10:23.:10:25.

by Sergeant Elor Azaria, who said he believed the wounded man

:10:26.:10:28.

Prosecutors said his motive was revenge.

:10:29.:10:32.

Let's cross to Tel Aviv and our correspondent, Yolande Knell.

:10:33.:10:41.

Well, just behind me is the Israeli Defence Ministry headquarters, that

:10:42.:10:47.

is where these legal proceedings took place, in a small courtroom,

:10:48.:10:53.

amid tight security. The key evidence in this trial was a

:10:54.:10:56.

shocking video filmed by a Palestinian activist.

:10:57.:11:00.

Caught on camera in Hebron last March, a chilling moment.

:11:01.:11:04.

A young Israeli Sergeant cocks his gun and then this.

:11:05.:11:06.

A single bullet to the head killed a wounded Palestinian,

:11:07.:11:11.

Sgt Azaria, a medic, has helped treat a wounded soldier,

:11:12.:11:19.

one of those attacked by the Palestinian and his friend.

:11:20.:11:23.

Today, the Sergeant was in court, smiling to see

:11:24.:11:25.

Soon afterwards, he was found guilty of manslaughter.

:11:26.:11:34.

The military judges in the court here said that Abdul Fatah al-Sharif

:11:35.:11:39.

They rejected the defence argument that he posed a threat.

:11:40.:11:47.

During the trial, the prosecution said Sgt Azaria acted out of revenge

:11:48.:11:50.

But the 20 year old does have loyal backers, in a country where most

:11:51.:11:57.

They accused the Army of abandoning one of its own.

:11:58.:12:01.

This soldier came to protect about little children,

:12:02.:12:03.

The Military Chief of Staff and the Minister

:12:04.:12:17.

On the Palestinian side, a different view.

:12:18.:12:27.

Ahead of the verdict, Id met the parents of Abdul Fatah

:12:28.:12:30.

al-Sharif, who accused the IDF of using excessive force.

:12:31.:12:34.

TRANSLATION: I feel like any father would feel.

:12:35.:12:36.

I've seen my son executed on TV, murdered.

:12:37.:12:46.

It's so hard to see that, no-one can endure this.

:12:47.:12:48.

It's still hard for me every time I remember what happened.

:12:49.:12:51.

If he died instantly, it would have been much easier

:12:52.:12:53.

than to see your son executed like that.

:12:54.:12:55.

Such a public trial of a soldier for killing a Palestinian

:12:56.:12:58.

The shooting happened during a wave of Palestinian attacks,

:12:59.:13:03.

when there was a national debate about how to respond.

:13:04.:13:07.

And this case has proved highly divisive, even

:13:08.:13:10.

setting top politicians against the Army's top brass.

:13:11.:13:16.

To underline those tensions, the Israeli -- and Israeli politician

:13:17.:13:24.

spoke strongly in support of Sgt Azaria soon after his arrest. He is

:13:25.:13:28.

now the Defence Minister and he has put out a statement urging people to

:13:29.:13:32.

show restraint about what he said was a difficult verdict. Sentencing

:13:33.:13:37.

in this case is expected at a later date.

:13:38.:13:37.

Thank you very much. When people call 999,

:13:38.:13:40.

there's an expectation that the ambulance crew which turns

:13:41.:13:42.

up are fully-trained paramedics. But the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire

:13:43.:13:44.

programme has discovered that some staff at a private ambulance

:13:45.:13:47.

company, based in Essex, have had as little as an hour's training

:13:48.:13:49.

on how to respond to emergencies. James Melley has

:13:50.:13:53.

this special report. When we dial 999 for a medical

:13:54.:13:58.

emergency, most people expect NHS ambulances and their highly trained

:13:59.:14:05.

crews to respond. But increasingly, NHS trusts

:14:06.:14:08.

are having to use private One of these companies

:14:09.:14:10.

is the Private Ambulance Service, It carries out work like taking

:14:11.:14:18.

patients to hospital appointments, transferring sick people

:14:19.:14:22.

between hospitals, and also provides cover for 999 calls for the East

:14:23.:14:27.

of England NHS Ambulance Trust. But whistle-blowers have told us

:14:28.:14:29.

staff are not properly trained, and the equipment they use is not

:14:30.:14:32.

up to scratch. The Private Ambulance Service

:14:33.:14:35.

was in the news last year after the Essex Coroner criticised

:14:36.:14:41.

it over the death of One of the company's crews

:14:42.:14:43.

responded to a call, They ran tests and said

:14:44.:14:46.

Mr Paige had got indigestion or had a hurt muscle,

:14:47.:14:50.

and didn't take him to hospital. He later died, having

:14:51.:14:53.

suffered a heart attack. We've spoken to several people

:14:54.:14:57.

that work or have worked Paul would only speak to us

:14:58.:15:00.

if we disguised his identity. He worked for PAS as a medic,

:15:01.:15:11.

but lost his job last year. I never had any

:15:12.:15:14.

induction or training. Pretty much just sent

:15:15.:15:15.

out and that was it. So you had no induction,

:15:16.:15:18.

no training? It was quite clear that

:15:19.:15:19.

I was working with people that, not through their own fault,

:15:20.:15:23.

were not trained. They were not competent

:15:24.:15:25.

in the job and they certainly were not confident in

:15:26.:15:27.

dealing with situations. Didn't know how to take simple

:15:28.:15:29.

things like blood sugars, ECGs. Didn't know how to do

:15:30.:15:32.

manual blood pressures. We started to hear more disturbing

:15:33.:15:33.

stories about the lack of basic training for staff at

:15:34.:15:41.

the Private Ambulance Service. Dan Duke worked at the company

:15:42.:15:44.

in patient transport The job could require him to drive

:15:45.:15:47.

under blue lights when taking an emergency patient

:15:48.:15:53.

between different hospitals. What training where you actually

:15:54.:15:55.

given in order to drive One hour's training

:15:56.:15:57.

on blue lights, that's it. So what is an acceptable level of

:15:58.:16:06.

training to drive under blue lights? Our whole course is four weeks

:16:07.:16:17.

long and the first two weeks are the foundation,

powered speed boat, Bluebird, catapulted into the air,

:18:31.:18:33.

hit the water and broke into pieces. Today a number of commemorations

were held to mark his death - and our correspondent,

mascot. And then, flowers to mark the spot where the record-breaker

lost his life. Campbell was one of a rare breed, a true patriot, flying

:19:48.:19:52.

just this one time it went wrong. Half a century on and Donald

Campbell? Name is celebrated by enthusiasts who also gathered in

:19:58.:20:00.

Coniston Water today to pay tribute to him. He's a very popular man, his

:20:01.:20:07.

is tremendous. He had a tough act to follow in his father Sir Malcolm and

:20:08.:20:12.

in his own mind he was setting himself against his father and his

:20:13.:20:17.

record. And to us he surpassed that. 50 years ago today he was trying to

:20:18.:20:23.

do 300 miles an hour and the record today is 317. It is a really tough

:20:24.:20:27.

record as tragically proved here. There is no innovation, no progress,

:20:28.:20:34.

without risk. Gena Campbell said it was years before she grasp the

:20:35.:20:38.

magnitude of her father? Achievements and that he will be

:20:39.:20:42.

talked about forever evermore and remembered as a hero. The conditions

:20:43.:20:49.

here today are almost identical to what it was like half a century ago.

:20:50.:20:55.

Crystal clear, absolutely beautiful on Coniston Water and of course

:20:56.:20:59.

although those memories remain vivid and enthusiasts come here to the

:21:00.:21:02.

spot where Donald Campbell died, it is not just about the past. There

:21:03.:21:06.

are also looking forward to the future because they tell me that

:21:07.:21:12.

they have hopes of being able to see a restored Bluebird back out on the

:21:13.:21:15.

water, there is work underway at the moment to make it happen and it is

:21:16.:21:18.

hoped that either this year or next year you may yet see Bluebird coming

:21:19.:21:24.

back to Coniston Water where it was last here so fatefully 50 years ago.

:21:25.:21:27.

Police in Bangalore have arrested at least six people,

:21:28.:21:29.

after reports that gangs of men carried out a number of sexual

:21:30.:21:32.

assaults against women during the city's New Year celebrations.

:21:33.:21:35.

Several women claim they were assaulted by mobs,

:21:36.:21:37.

and CCTV pictures have emerged of one woman being attacked.

:21:38.:21:39.

Crowds flocked to the centre of Bangalore to see in the New Year.

:21:40.:21:56.

But as midnight approached, the mood became darker.

:21:57.:21:59.

A series of women were groped and assaulted, witnesses said

:22:00.:22:02.

I think as Bangalorians we should be ashamed,

:22:03.:22:10.

hang our heads in shame that the community and the society,

:22:11.:22:14.

the onlookers, did not take any action.

:22:15.:22:17.

One politician blamed victims for wearing western clothes.

:22:18.:22:24.

It has also raised wider questions, in a country where only 1% of women

:22:25.:22:27.

Under pressure, the police have now made arrests.

:22:28.:22:35.

We did not waste time, we did not wait to look

:22:36.:22:40.

for the complainant, we have registered the case.

:22:41.:22:47.

The investigation has started, the whole team is investigating.

:22:48.:22:50.

And we will make all efforts to catch the culprits.

:22:51.:22:55.

CCTV has now emerged of another assault on the same night.

:22:56.:22:59.

Look, at the top of the screen, a woman walking home.

:23:00.:23:06.

She fights back and manages to escape.

:23:07.:23:10.

One night in Bangalore has highlighted an unpleasant truth

:23:11.:23:16.

Police in Turkey have arrested five people over the New Year terror

:23:17.:23:27.

They were detained in the Western coastal city of Izmir.

:23:28.:23:31.

The Turkish foreign minister says the chief suspect in the attack has

:23:32.:23:34.

now been identified, though he hasn't

:23:35.:23:35.

It's being reported that the convicted mass murderer,

:23:36.:23:41.

Charles Manson, has been taken to hospital.

:23:42.:23:43.

Media reports say that Manson, who is in his eighties,

:23:44.:23:46.

has been moved to a medical centre about an hour away from

:23:47.:23:48.

California's Corcoran State prison where he is being held.

:23:49.:23:51.

Prison officials have confirmed that he is still alive.

:23:52.:23:56.

With the current threat level in the UK at 'severe' we're

:23:57.:23:59.

all being urged to think how we would cope in the event

:24:00.:24:01.

Military and civilian medics have launched a website and smartphone

:24:02.:24:05.

app called CitizenAid, which teaches people how to treat

:24:06.:24:07.

casualties in the vital moments before paramedics arrive

:24:08.:24:09.

A warning - what you see next is a reconstruction.

:24:10.:24:18.

This isn't real, but security officials say the terror

:24:19.:24:30.

threat in the UK is high and despite their best

:24:31.:24:32.

Many people could be hurt in the chaos.

:24:33.:24:41.

The problem is, it may take some time for help to arrive.

:24:42.:24:45.

Police and security forces have to deal with terrorists first,

:24:46.:24:48.

making sure it's safe, before paramedics can come in.

:24:49.:24:52.

And in that time, lives could be lost.

:24:53.:24:57.

The first responders to that incident from a police perspective

:24:58.:25:01.

will inevitably be trying to deal with the people causing the threat.

:25:02.:25:04.

They won't have time to help people who may have been injured.

:25:05.:25:08.

And we know that that gap is vital for saving people's lives.

:25:09.:25:12.

So we're really, really interested in the work of CitizenAid.

:25:13.:25:18.

There's a gunman in the street, three people have been shot.

:25:19.:25:24.

The experts behind CitizenAid say the app and pocketbook give simple,

:25:25.:25:26.

step-by-step instructions to save others.

:25:27.:25:31.

But the public should only attempt first aid once

:25:32.:25:33.

The app says that you need to pack the wound.

:25:34.:25:45.

We know from recent military experience that if we give simple

:25:46.:25:52.

skills to individual soldiers, then they can save lives

:25:53.:25:55.

when there are very serious injuries as a result of combat style injury.

:25:56.:26:00.

And what we are really keen to do is to ensure that we transfer that

:26:01.:26:07.

learning from the military to the benefit of the wider public.

:26:08.:26:16.

If someone is bleeding severely, you can use anything you have

:26:17.:26:19.

Don't be afraid to use a tourniquet made out

:26:20.:26:25.

Attempting first aid may not be for everyone,

:26:26.:26:31.

but military medics say it is better to have a plan, in case

:26:32.:26:35.

this worst-case scenario turns into reality.

:26:36.:26:36.

Train drivers with Southern Railway are cutting their six-day strike -

:26:37.:26:51.

planned for next week - to three days.

:26:52.:26:53.

But their union, ASLEF, says it will strike again

:26:54.:26:55.

for another three days later in the month.

:26:56.:26:57.

The drivers are striking over the increasing use

:26:58.:26:59.

Now, to the dinosaur who's about to go on tour.

:27:00.:27:10.

Dippy the Diplodocus has been the centre piece

:27:11.:27:12.

at London's Natural History Museum since 1905, and has appeared in two

:27:13.:27:15.

But today he's being dismantled, ready to be cleaned up,

:27:16.:27:24.

and then sent round the UK on a two year long tour.

:27:25.:27:26.

He's being replaced by the skeleton of a blue whale.

:27:27.:27:29.

Our correspondent, Daniela Relph, is at the museum now.

:27:30.:27:31.

I'm in the busy main entrance hall, which has been done to Dippy for

:27:32.:27:41.

along and he is such a familiar sight to all who visit the Natural

:27:42.:27:47.

Museum. Just on the issue of pronunciation, he is a Diplocodus

:27:48.:27:52.

and today will be his very last day here inside the museum.

:27:53.:27:59.

It is busy here most days. But for those queueing today there was a

:28:00.:28:03.

good bit to be had. The first sight of Dippy has been a lasting memory

:28:04.:28:07.

for so many children. It is the first thing that you see when you

:28:08.:28:11.

arrive. The Natural History Museum estimates around 90 million people

:28:12.:28:16.

have stood here and looked Dippy. It is not known if the Diplocodus is a

:28:17.:28:21.

he or she, but today is the last chance to see Dippy at the museum.

:28:22.:28:28.

Because it is the last day, people might not have seen it before and

:28:29.:28:31.

they will want to come over and that is why we have the crowds. What you

:28:32.:28:38.

think of Dippy? He roars. It is amazing to think it lived a long

:28:39.:28:43.

time ago and was actually walking around. A bit sad he's going but

:28:44.:28:47.

maybe I can see other dinosaurs. Dippy first came to the museum more

:28:48.:28:53.

than 100 years ago, made up of 292 bones, the dinosaur arrived in 36

:28:54.:28:57.

cases. During the Second World War the skeleton was taken to the

:28:58.:29:01.

basement to protect it. The Diplocodus is a plaster cast replica

:29:02.:29:07.

of the real thing, it would have weighed 13 tonnes when alive. It has

:29:08.:29:09.

been cleaned up and cared for here in the main entrance hall since 1979

:29:10.:29:14.

when it took up its current position. Pulling it apart and

:29:15.:29:17.

moving the dinosaur will be detailed and delicate work. In the morning we

:29:18.:29:24.

will start to take Dippy down, taking the glass barrier away and

:29:25.:29:27.

then we start to work from the tail back up to the body and then the

:29:28.:29:31.

neck and over the next month we will take each bone down, each of the 292

:29:32.:29:36.

bones, we will clean and inspect them and pack them up. Once cleaned

:29:37.:29:43.

up and we assembled, Dippy goes on tour for two years. It begins

:29:44.:29:47.

appropriately on the Dorset Jurassic Coast before moving to Birmingham,

:29:48.:29:52.

Glasgow, Newcastle, Cardiff and other locations. And this is what

:29:53.:29:57.

will replace Dippy, the skeleton of a blue whale, hung from the ceiling

:29:58.:30:01.

to give the impression of it diving. Being a living species that needs

:30:02.:30:06.

protecting. But today it is all about Dippy. For those feeling a

:30:07.:30:11.

little bit sad at his departure, there are tentative plans to recast

:30:12.:30:15.

the Diplocodus in bronze and place it in the museum grounds. But for

:30:16.:30:23.

now, it is goodbye. Now taking Dippy apart is going to be a month --

:30:24.:30:28.

months of work as labelling all the bones and training them and then

:30:29.:30:32.

putting them back together again ready for the tour, that will go on

:30:33.:30:35.

over the next couple of years or so. In terms of his replacement, the as

:30:36.:30:40.

yet unnamed blue whale should be in position and hanging from the

:30:41.:30:41.

ceiling by the summer. No bones about it, it is going to be

:30:42.:30:52.

pretty chilly over the next 24 hours. In fact we are in something

:30:53.:30:56.

of a temperature battle ground with cold air to the east but mild air

:30:57.:31:02.

never far away out to the west. But for the time being today the cold

:31:03.:31:06.

front is the story bringing in that cold air and pushing mild air away

:31:07.:31:11.

to the west. It also brings some outbreaks of rain across

:31:12.:31:15.

south-western areas and up to the north-east we have showers coming

:31:16.:31:20.

in. They are blowing in on a pretty blustery north-west wind making it

:31:21.:31:27.

feel quite cold and raw. Inland especially over the high ground we

:31:28.:31:31.

have some sleet and snow and showers running right the way down to the

:31:32.:31:36.

coast of East Anglia where again it will feel cold in the strong wind.

:31:37.:31:41.

Further west we have sunshine but also extra cloud across the far

:31:42.:31:45.

south-west producing the spot of rain and temperatures on chilly side

:31:46.:31:51.

wherever you are. Then as soon as it gets dark this evening and tonight,

:31:52.:31:55.

the temperature is are going to plunge. You can see the blue shading

:31:56.:31:59.

spreading right across the map and where we keep the shower going

:32:00.:32:03.

across eastern areas, there could be some icy stretches on the untreated

:32:04.:32:08.

roads. Towns and cities widely getting down to freezing but in the

:32:09.:32:13.

countryside we could reach minus seven degrees. So certainly a cold

:32:14.:32:17.

start to tomorrow morning but a beautiful day with blue skies and

:32:18.:32:21.

crisp sunshine. The showers tending to die away from eastern areas. The

:32:22.:32:32.

temperature is really struggling. Through Thursday night we hold onto

:32:33.:32:36.

high pressure towards the south-east and underneath the high-pressure, we

:32:37.:32:41.

could have some dense fog patches forming butt out west we have a

:32:42.:32:44.

change with these frontal systems pushing in. The mild air lying in

:32:45.:32:50.

wait out west. We have some rain but behind that things turn milder. 11

:32:51.:32:56.

degrees in Belfast on Friday afternoon and that sets us up nicely

:32:57.:32:59.

for the weekend. It will feel considerably milder and we have some

:33:00.:33:05.

rather cloudy conditions for most of the time. From that the odd spot of

:33:06.:33:10.

patchy rain and drizzle at times. So cloudy into the weekend, maybe some

:33:11.:33:14.

rain at times but before we get there prepared to feel the chill.

:33:15.:33:18.

Some very cold weather through the next 24 hours.

:33:19.:33:22.

A reminder of our main story this lunchtime.

:33:23.:33:23.

Britain's outgoing EU Ambassador has attacked the government for "muddled

:33:24.:33:28.

That's all from the BBC News at One - so it's goodbye from me -
