The Prime Minister lays out her plans to combat

:00:00.:00:00.

what she calls the hidden injustice of mental illness.

:00:00.:00:10.

It's part of a broader strategy to create what she described

:00:11.:00:13.

as a "shared society" to try to prevent extremists

:00:14.:00:16.

Failure to take this opportunity to show the ability of mainstream

:00:17.:00:30.

centre ground of politics to respond to public concern would further

:00:31.:00:32.

entrench the buried divisions we seek to overcome. -- very divisions.

:00:33.:00:37.

Also on the programme this lunchtime...

:00:38.:00:39.

Chaos in London for millions of commuters as a 24-hour

:00:42.:00:43.

Seventeen people arrested in France after reality TV star Kim Kardashian

was robbed of millions of pounds of jewellery last year.

actresses after she criticises him in a speech at the

And heavy snow in southern Italy - dozens of people die as a cold snap

grips large parts of eastern and central Europe.

:01:04.:01:04.

And coming up in the sport on BBC News...

:01:05.:01:09.

England flanker Chris Robshaw will miss the Six Nations championship as

:01:10.:01:15.

he undergoes shoulder surgery, ruling him out of action for 12

:01:16.:01:17.

weeks. Good afternoon and welcome

:01:18.:01:34.

to the BBC News at One. Theresa May has described mental

:01:35.:01:38.

illness as a "hidden injustice" which had been "dangerously

:01:39.:01:40.

disregarded", and said she is The Prime Minister has been

:01:41.:01:43.

outlining a package of measures, including plans to give extra

:01:44.:01:48.

training for teachers and employers, as part of broader proposals

:01:49.:01:52.

to create what she described Mental health experts, though,

:01:53.:01:54.

say more funding is needed Here's our health

:01:55.:01:58.

correspondent, Elaine Dunkley. There are no words for what it does

:01:59.:02:14.

to a family. Shock is not the word, it is just your whole reality is

:02:15.:02:19.

blown to pieces. In 2014, Doctor Sangeeta Mahajan's son took his own

:02:20.:02:26.

life. He was just 20 years old and had been diagnosed with bipolar

:02:27.:02:29.

disorder. Ten weeks later he was dead. They don't discharge patients

:02:30.:02:35.

with adequate information, the doors were closed for us. We were told to

:02:36.:02:40.

either go to A or your GP and it is the only way we can come back, we

:02:41.:02:45.

had no direct access back to the specialist services. That is wrong.

:02:46.:02:50.

The Prime Minister, Theresa May, has described mental health care as a

:02:51.:02:54.

burning injustice and today a promise of a major overhaul. Left

:02:55.:03:00.

unaddressed it destroys lives, separates people from each other and

:03:01.:03:05.

deepens the divisions within our society. Changing this goes right to

:03:06.:03:09.

the heart of our humanity, to the heart of the kind of country we are,

:03:10.:03:14.

the attitudes we hold and the values we share. The plans include mental

:03:15.:03:19.

health first aid training for secondary schools, employers and

:03:20.:03:23.

organisations will also be given additional guidance in supporting

:03:24.:03:28.

staff who need to take time off. And there will be greater emphasis on

:03:29.:03:32.

community care. The Prime Minister says this is an historical

:03:33.:03:36.

opportunity to right a wrong but for those on the front line of mental

:03:37.:03:41.

health services, funding is a major concern. Mental health is still very

:03:42.:03:45.

underfunded compared to other areas of medicine. It generates probably

:03:46.:03:52.

20 to 25% of the total disease burden of all diseases and yet the

:03:53.:03:56.

funding is ten to 12% in this country. So little people are

:03:57.:04:01.

putting about it. Four years ago, Jake Mills tried to end his life and

:04:02.:04:05.

he now runs a mental health charity to help others and he says in order

:04:06.:04:09.

for there to be to change there needs to be greater awareness and

:04:10.:04:12.

understanding. Education needs to happen. And without being facetious

:04:13.:04:19.

about it, if there was a disease that existed that was killing more

:04:20.:04:27.

men in this country under the age of 49 and it was preventable and

:04:28.:04:30.

treatable, we would all be experts on it, we would know exactly what to

:04:31.:04:35.

look out for, exactly what to do if we had symptoms. Jake says he is

:04:36.:04:41.

living proof that with the right intervention there is hope but many

:04:42.:04:45.

feel in order for mental health to get the same recognition as physical

:04:46.:04:50.

health, additional funding is crucial. Elaine Dunkley, BBC News.

:04:51.:04:52.

Let's speak to our social affairs correspondent, Michael Buchanan.

:04:53.:04:54.

The Prime Minister has outlined a strategy but how much difference

:04:55.:04:57.

That is going to be the key question and a lot of mental health

:04:58.:05:06.

professionals will hope it makes a difference because the need for it

:05:07.:05:10.

to do so as you heard in that report is urgent and intense. One of the

:05:11.:05:14.

ironies in recent years there has been a campaign aimed at reducing

:05:15.:05:20.

the stigma around mental health which Theresa May was talking about

:05:21.:05:23.

this morning and that have been partially successful and has led to

:05:24.:05:26.

people coming forward and talking about mental health services and

:05:27.:05:31.

seeking support but when they have done that, support has often not

:05:32.:05:36.

been there. There is a report out in November from the education policy

:05:37.:05:39.

institution think tank that found one in four young people were being

:05:40.:05:43.

turned away from therapy and two thirds of people aged between 16 and

:05:44.:05:48.

34 who had actually attempted suicide had not received any

:05:49.:05:53.

follow-up care at all. That was all taking place after the government

:05:54.:05:59.

had promised to spend nearly ?2 billion on mental health services in

:06:00.:06:02.

England. The reason the money is not getting through from the Treasury is

:06:03.:06:08.

that NHS in England and local care commissioners are not ring fenced

:06:09.:06:13.

it. It has meant that a lot of the money that was meant to go to mental

:06:14.:06:17.

health has simply got into acute care and physical health care needs.

:06:18.:06:21.

Up till now it has been possible for health care officials to ignore

:06:22.:06:25.

central diktats from Westminster but the keeper will be whether Theresa

:06:26.:06:31.

May's rhetoric cantered into the reality on the front line for mental

:06:32.:06:32.

health patients. Our assistant political editor,

:06:33.:06:34.

Norman Smith, is in Westminster. How much more did we learn about the

:06:35.:06:46.

vision for government? I think what we got was Mrs May's attempt at a

:06:47.:06:51.

big idea beyond Brexit, what she wants her government to be about

:06:52.:06:55.

beyond pulling out of the European Union. She said it is wholesale

:06:56.:07:03.

social reform. At the heart of it is this idea of trying to tackle what

:07:04.:07:08.

she regards as everyday, forgotten injustices around issues like this

:07:09.:07:14.

termination in the criminal justice system, life expectancy for poorer

:07:15.:07:18.

families and also around mental health provision. The second aspect

:07:19.:07:23.

is about recalibrating where government focuses its effort and

:07:24.:07:27.

her view is that for too long successive governments have simply

:07:28.:07:34.

focused on those who are most disadvantaged and most deprived and

:07:35.:07:37.

it has ignored people who are just about managing but are still having

:07:38.:07:42.

a pretty hard time. She has promised a raft of announcements over the

:07:43.:07:47.

coming months, filling in some of the details. Today, beyond mental

:07:48.:07:52.

health, we got no real specific commitments. The difficulty she

:07:53.:07:57.

faces is that Brexit is such a massive undertaking for any

:07:58.:08:03.

government that trying to do almost anything substantial beyond that is

:08:04.:08:08.

going to be incredibly difficult. That, coupled with a lack of

:08:09.:08:13.

resources, means trying to undertake the hugely ambitious sort of reforms

:08:14.:08:18.

in the area of mental health and social care that Mrs May wants to

:08:19.:08:22.

undertake is going to be extraordinarily difficult. The

:08:23.:08:28.

danger that she ends up overpromising and under delivering.

:08:29.:08:28.

Thank you. The value of the pound fell

:08:29.:08:30.

by almost 1% this morning in early trading against the dollar

:08:31.:08:33.

and the euro. The fall came after the Prime

:08:34.:08:35.

Minister, in an interview yesterday, refused to rule out the possibility

:08:36.:08:38.

of the UK leaving the single market Let's speak to our economics

:08:39.:08:41.

editor, Kamal Ahmed. It goes to show how sensitive it all

:08:42.:08:50.

is. Markets are obviously still concerned about what is the root of

:08:51.:08:54.

exit full so yes, Britain is leading the EU but what kind of trading

:08:55.:08:58.

relationship will we have with the rest of Europe, our most important

:08:59.:09:02.

trading partner? It had a weak morning to date but it has been weak

:09:03.:09:07.

really since the referendum, falling by 11% on the referendum night. Why

:09:08.:09:11.

does it matter? Because we import a lot of our food and fuel into the UK

:09:12.:09:16.

so if sterling is weak, that means that prices will go up which effects

:09:17.:09:21.

on consumers. There are some upside to a weaker pound. Our experts

:09:22.:09:28.

become more competitive and exports. And the stock market has had a

:09:29.:09:33.

strong morning because although a lot of big companies are UK based,

:09:34.:09:37.

bit actually earn in dollars and they have become more valuable and

:09:38.:09:41.

that is important for peoples pension funds, a lot of which are

:09:42.:09:44.

invested in the stock market so if it is strong that is good for

:09:45.:09:48.

pensions. The overall judgment of the market at the moment is that,

:09:49.:09:53.

because of uncertainty about the direction of travel of Brexit and

:09:54.:09:58.

how hard it might be, they believe the UK economy will suffer because

:09:59.:10:01.

of that uncertainty and therefore they are saying that the pound, or

:10:02.:10:06.

they are signalling that the pound will be weaker because of it. Thank

:10:07.:10:07.

you. The taxpayer is no longer

:10:08.:10:09.

the largest sharehold in Lloyds banking group after the government

:10:10.:10:11.

has reduced its stake. The government spent

:10:12.:10:13.

?20 billion on a 43% stake in Lloyds at the height

:10:14.:10:15.

of the financial crisis. The government now owns

:10:16.:10:18.

less than 6% of shares. It has already said it wants

:10:19.:10:20.

to return the bank to full private Millions of commuters

:10:21.:10:23.

have had a chaotic start to the week after a strike

:10:24.:10:30.

on the London Underground shut down One of the capital's

:10:31.:10:33.

busiest train stations, Clapham Junction, had to be

:10:34.:10:37.

evacuated because of overcrowding after large numbers of people tried

:10:38.:10:39.

to find an alternative The strike, which is due to end

:10:40.:10:41.

tonight, is over staff numbers Our correspondent Daniel Boettcher

:10:42.:10:46.

is in central London. This strike started yesterday

:10:47.:10:59.

evening but it was only this morning in the rush hour that the full

:11:00.:11:03.

impact became clear. There has been some improvement, a few more

:11:04.:11:06.

stations have opened, although the one behind me is locked and has been

:11:07.:11:11.

a difficult start to do it for many Tube passengers.

:11:12.:11:14.

This is what commuters on the London Underground faced this morning, a

:11:15.:11:19.

third of all stations closed and a limited service on most of the lines

:11:20.:11:25.

that were operating. Around 4 million people use the network, the

:11:26.:11:28.

strike has left travellers frustrated with journeys taking far

:11:29.:11:31.

longer than usual as passengers had to find other ways of getting to

:11:32.:11:36.

work. I gave myself two hours and it looks like I'm going to be late. I

:11:37.:11:42.

almost missed quite a few exams because of all this industrial

:11:43.:11:48.

action going on. It's quite irritating. I did think it is unfair

:11:49.:11:53.

because it puts all others in a situation where we are all late for

:11:54.:11:57.

work. The way I see it, it is what it is. They have got their cause so,

:11:58.:12:03.

yeah, you work around it. Because there are so few Tube trains

:12:04.:12:07.

running, Kenny to traffic on the road has been even heavier than

:12:08.:12:11.

usual and despite an extra 150 buses being laid on, the bus network has

:12:12.:12:15.

been packed with long queues -- commuter traffic. The RMT and the

:12:16.:12:22.

TSSA and is about jobs and staffing levels and the unions say cuts are

:12:23.:12:27.

jeopardising safety. They need to put back in a task force response

:12:28.:12:33.

almost two put this safe. Because we have sympathy for the public and we

:12:34.:12:37.

regret this strike. We're been in weeks of talks between were up

:12:38.:12:40.

against a brick wall. The London Mets Sadiq Khan said he condemned

:12:41.:12:44.

the action and that talks to resolve the issues should be resumed. I know

:12:45.:12:49.

this strike could have been avoided and it is unnecessary and I'm

:12:50.:12:52.

imploring the trade unions to come back and talk to the management team

:12:53.:12:55.

about resolving this so there are not further days of industrial

:12:56.:13:00.

action. London Underground says there is no need for a strike. We

:13:01.:13:05.

will continue our process of recruiting additional people and we

:13:06.:13:09.

also want to work with the trade unions over the next couple of

:13:10.:13:12.

months to identify where we may need to strengthen that. This dispute

:13:13.:13:16.

could only be resolved by the trade unions working with us

:13:17.:13:19.

collaboratively and talking around the table, not through strike

:13:20.:13:24.

action. Some commuters face further disruption this week in an unrelated

:13:25.:13:28.

strike on Southern rail services. Passengers are being told to travel

:13:29.:13:33.

only if essential on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, when train

:13:34.:13:34.

drivers belonging to a Aslef are expected to be on

:13:35.:13:50.

strike over a long-running dispute over the role of guards and the

:13:51.:13:53.

company said there will be no services on strike days with only a

:13:54.:13:56.

limited number of bus links instead. The industrial advection -- the

:13:57.:13:58.

industrial action today is not in both overground rail services but

:13:59.:14:00.

there has been no interchange to be Tube network at Key stations and in

:14:01.:14:03.

places the numbers of passengers trying to use rail services instead

:14:04.:14:04.

has caused problems. Clapham Junction was temporarily evacuated

:14:05.:14:06.

because of overcrowded. There were no trains stopping and passengers

:14:07.:14:09.

had to wait outside the border station reopened.

:14:10.:14:11.

The strike is due to end at 6pm this evening but London Underground is

:14:12.:14:17.

that it has been focusing efforts on trying to provide the best service

:14:18.:14:20.

possible under these circumstances today so there will be further

:14:21.:14:24.

problems this evening even after the strike had ended and things will

:14:25.:14:25.

only get back to normal tomorrow. Seventeen people have been arrested

:14:26.:14:27.

in connection with the robbery of the reality TV star,

:14:28.:14:30.

Kim Kardashian, A gang of masked men burst

:14:31.:14:31.

into her apartment in Paris and held her at gunpoint before

:14:32.:14:38.

making off with millions Let's speak to our correspondent

:14:39.:14:40.

in Paris, Hugh Schofield. What more can you tell us? There was

:14:41.:14:51.

a series of dawn raids this morning in the Paris area, in Normandy and

:14:52.:15:01.

also in the South in Nice and Grasse. 17 people were picked up of

:15:02.:15:05.

all ages and police says that are well known as card and members of

:15:06.:15:11.

the criminal underworld. What led to this was a clue left at the scene at

:15:12.:15:19.

this luxury hotel in October by the perpetrators. -- hardened members.

:15:20.:15:24.

Five men burst in and held her at gunpoint and took away these jewels

:15:25.:15:29.

but I also left behind DNA, one of them had handled the ligatures that

:15:30.:15:34.

she was bound with an another dropped upend and on the road

:15:35.:15:38.

outside. From these bits of DNA they were able to make a match with

:15:39.:15:43.

somebody who was on their books already -- dropped a pendant. They

:15:44.:15:47.

were put under surveillance and they have had this information for a long

:15:48.:15:49.

time and were watching this man and his gang and they were able to make

:15:50.:15:55.

preparations as the gang prepared to dispose of the jewels. It was at the

:15:56.:16:03.

end of a long period of surveillance that they decided to sweep this

:16:04.:16:08.

morning and arrest 17. One question still remaining to be answered is

:16:09.:16:12.

whether this was an inside job because of course one of the key

:16:13.:16:16.

factors was that on that very night, the bodyguard of Kardashian was

:16:17.:16:20.

absent. Did the gang know that? Thank you.

:16:21.:16:22.

The time is 1.15pm. Our top story this lunchtime.

:16:23.:16:25.

The Prime Minister has been laying out her plans to combat

:16:26.:16:28.

what she calls the hidden injustice of mental illness.

:16:29.:16:30.

A British trucker is honoured for raising money for the family

:16:31.:16:34.

of the Polish lorry driver killed in the Berlin

:16:35.:16:36.

And coming up in the sport on BBC News.

:16:37.:16:41.

Johanna Konta warms up for the start of the Australian Open,

:16:42.:16:44.

where she was a semifinalist last year, with a comfortable win

:16:45.:16:46.

The Hollywood musical La La Land looks like the film to beat

:16:47.:17:01.

at this year's Oscars after it swept the board at the Golden Globes,

:17:02.:17:04.

It was also a good night for the Brits.

:17:05.:17:09.

But the evening was also filled with political drama as Meryl Streep

:17:10.:17:13.

took to the stage and criticised the president-elect Donald Trump

:17:14.:17:16.

This morning, Mr Trump hit back, calling her one of the most

:17:17.:17:21.

Los Angeles, California - where stories are spun

:17:22.:17:31.

A place of glitz and glamour, of gowns and gossip.

:17:32.:17:36.

There were a record seven Golden Globes for the musical including

:17:37.:17:48.

acting awards for its stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone.

:17:49.:17:50.

And I think that hope and creativity are two of the most important things

:17:51.:17:58.

in the world, and that's what this movie is about.

:17:59.:18:02.

The television categories included wins for Atlanta,

:18:03.:18:08.

The People Versus OJ Simpson, and for Claire Foy,

:18:09.:18:11.

who played Britain's Queen Elizabeth in The Crown.

:18:12.:18:13.

I really, really, really wouldn't be here if it wasn't for some

:18:14.:18:16.

extraordinary women, I'm going to thank them.

:18:17.:18:17.

She has been at the centre of the world for the past 63 years.

:18:18.:18:24.

And I think the world could do with a few more women

:18:25.:18:28.

at the centre of it, if you ask me.

:18:29.:18:31.

There were three acting awards for BBC co-production The Night Manager.

:18:32.:18:34.

Its star Tom Hiddlestone used his speech to highlight

:18:35.:18:37.

It's a terrible situation happening for children.

:18:38.:18:43.

The Night Manager is about arms dealing and there are far too many

:18:44.:18:46.

Co-star Hugh Laurie's remarks were also political,

:18:47.:18:51.

I suppose made more amazing by the fact I'll be able to say that

:18:52.:18:57.

I won this at the last ever Golden Globes.

:18:58.:19:01.

I don't mean to be gloomy, it's just that it has

:19:02.:19:04.

the words Hollywood, foreign and press in the title.

:19:05.:19:06.

Receiving a lifetime achievement award, Meryl Streep also lambasted

:19:07.:19:13.

Disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence.

:19:14.:19:20.

When the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose.

:19:21.:19:23.

So Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners

:19:24.:19:26.

and if we kick them all out you'll have nothing to watch but football

:19:27.:19:30.

and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts.

:19:31.:19:36.

Elsewhere, Britain's Aaron Taylor-Johnson

:19:37.:19:38.

won for his supporting role in the dark crime

:19:39.:19:40.

Thank you, HFPA, for acknowledging me in this role.

:19:41.:19:49.

Thank you so much for this opportunity.

:19:50.:19:54.

Creating this role and collaborating on this journey was an immense joy.

:19:55.:20:03.

Well, Hollywood can be fun and frivolous but it also prides

:20:04.:20:05.

Many stars here on the red carpet are predicting a surge in political

:20:06.:20:11.

films this year following the most divisive of elections.

:20:12.:20:13.

This morning, Donald Trump responded to those comments

:20:18.:20:19.

with a tweet in which he called Meryl Streep...

:20:20.:20:30.

The Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has held the first meeting

:20:31.:20:33.

between British Government ministers and Donald Trump's top aides.

:20:34.:20:37.

He will meet leading Republicans in Washington later today.

:20:38.:20:40.

Our diplomatic correspondent James Robbins is with me.

:20:41.:20:45.

This is all ahead of the Prime Minister's first trip

:20:46.:20:48.

It could be as soon as next month. That's right, substance and

:20:49.:20:59.

symbolism in this visit. Attempting to get the US and UK relationship

:21:00.:21:03.

back on an even keel because the transatlantic ship was listing quite

:21:04.:21:07.

badly after Nigel Farage was so quick to Trump Tower after the

:21:08.:21:10.

election of the president elect Donald Trump. That sent an entirely

:21:11.:21:15.

negative signal, particularly from a Downing Street point of view, about

:21:16.:21:21.

where the axis of the US and UK relationship really lay. Boris

:21:22.:21:23.

Johnson is in New York and Washington as a bit of a

:21:24.:21:28.

trailblazer. In New York, he saw members of the incoming Trump

:21:29.:21:31.

administration, and that was very important. Apparently they had very

:21:32.:21:37.

frank discussions, including big differences between Washington and

:21:38.:21:40.

London over Russia in particular. Today the Foreign Secretary will be

:21:41.:21:44.

seeing Republican leaders on the hill in Congress, also very

:21:45.:21:48.

important. It's worth underlining that he cannot, for protocol

:21:49.:21:53.

reasons, see the likely next Secretary of State Rex Tillerson,

:21:54.:21:56.

because he is facing congressional confirmation hearings and it

:21:57.:21:58.

wouldn't be per before the Foreign Secretary to see him before he is

:21:59.:22:03.

confirmed in office. -- wouldn't be proper. He is not seeing Donald

:22:04.:22:07.

Trump, that is a murmured reserved for Theresa May.

:22:08.:22:11.

More than a quarter of young people in Britain say they don't feel

:22:12.:22:14.

in control of their lives as a result of political events

:22:15.:22:16.

According to a national study, money worries are top of the list

:22:17.:22:21.

of issues making them feel anxious about their future.

:22:22.:22:23.

For 19-year-old Milly Rawley, getting help was crucial

:22:24.:22:28.

to getting her life back on track after her mum died.

:22:29.:22:31.

I faced a series of relationship breakdowns and different forms

:22:32.:22:35.

of abuse until eventually when I was 16 I became

:22:36.:22:37.

homeless for three months, and this was when mental

:22:38.:22:40.

After receiving treatment in hospital, Milly is living

:22:41.:22:46.

at the YMCA while doing her A-levels, and she's now

:22:47.:22:49.

Compared to years ago, I know where I want to go,

:22:50.:22:55.

what I want to do, and I know how to get there.

:22:56.:22:58.

According to the Prince's Trust, which has supported Milly,

:22:59.:23:01.

more than a quarter of young people don't feel in control

:23:02.:23:04.

The charity says well-being for 16 to 25-year-olds is at its lowest

:23:05.:23:09.

We need to invest in things like cadets, programs in schools

:23:10.:23:17.

that are character-building and encourage teamwork.

:23:18.:23:20.

I think we need to invest much more heavily in vocational training

:23:21.:23:24.

Concerns over body image, recent political events including

:23:25.:23:33.

the Brexit vote and the Syria situation, as well as money worries,

:23:34.:23:36.

were all raised by the survey - issues these young people say

:23:37.:23:39.

Because of recent political events and the economic outlook,

:23:40.:23:43.

there is just a really high level of uncertainty.

:23:44.:23:49.

You have to have a certain income to rent.

:23:50.:23:51.

A lot of employers expect you to have lots of experience

:23:52.:23:54.

just even to find an entry-level job.

:23:55.:23:56.

While life can be difficult for all young people,

:23:57.:23:58.

Milly says it's important to reach out when you know things are really

:23:59.:24:01.

North Korea says it's ready at any time to test a long-range missile.

:24:02.:24:11.

The country's leader, Kim Jong-Un, said in his New Year's address

:24:12.:24:13.

that the missile was in the final stages of development.

:24:14.:24:17.

Washington has made it clear that, if it launched an intercontinental

:24:18.:24:20.

ballistic missile, America would shoot it down.

:24:21.:24:23.

So is the threat real, or just posturing before

:24:24.:24:25.

Here's our correspondent in Seoul, Steven Evans.

:24:26.:24:31.

The big missiles paraded through Pyongyang.

:24:32.:24:37.

Though some experts think they can't actually do

:24:38.:24:40.

what North Korea claims they can, they are more for show.

:24:41.:24:44.

In his New Year's message, Kim Jong-un said his country

:24:45.:24:51.

was in the final stages of developing an intercontinental

:24:52.:24:55.

ballistic missile - a long-range missile

:24:56.:24:58.

A message echoed on the North Korea News.

:24:59.:25:07.

The talking is getting tougher, and the tweeting.

:25:08.:25:16.

Donald Trump tweeted about North Korea getting ICBMs.

:25:17.:25:21.

But Washington's outgoing secretary of defence said that

:25:22.:25:26.

if North Korea did test an ICBM, it might be shot down.

:25:27.:25:29.

Their nuclear weapons and ballistic missile defence programmes

:25:30.:25:31.

We try to stay ahead of that and we are trying,

:25:32.:25:37.

we are staying ahead of that with our missile defences to make

:25:38.:25:40.

sure we've upgraded their number, their type, so that we are sure

:25:41.:25:43.

We have deployed missile defences in South Korea, Japan, Guam.

:25:44.:25:53.

In Pyongyang, it was sports day on Sunday.

:25:54.:25:57.

Workers from different industries competed and chanted

:25:58.:26:00.

that they wanted the two halves of Korea to reunite.

:26:01.:26:07.

Kim Jong-un visited a silk and textile mill.

:26:08.:26:10.

He'll have more on his mind, though, than the design of quilts.

:26:11.:26:14.

His nuclear ambitions are moving up the Washington agenda

:26:15.:26:17.

Stephen Evans, BBC News, South Korea.

:26:18.:26:29.

When the attack against the Berlin Christmas market happened,

:26:30.:26:37.

one of the first who was killed was the Polish driver whose lorry

:26:38.:26:40.

A British lorry driver was so moved by what happened

:26:41.:26:44.

that he launched an appeal to help the Polish man's family.

:26:45.:26:47.

So far, it's raised nearly ?200,000, and today

:26:48.:26:49.

he's being thanked by the Polish ambassador in London.

:26:50.:26:51.

Kasia Madeira is at the Polish embassy.

:26:52.:27:01.

David Duncan had never met Lukasz Urban, he had never had contact with

:27:02.:27:09.

him, but when he heard about what happened to the Polish trucker in

:27:10.:27:12.

Berlin, he felt so moved, so compassionate that he set up this

:27:13.:27:16.

online crowdfunding campaign. Today is about thanking him on behalf of

:27:17.:27:20.

the Polish community in the UK and also the Polish community in Poland.

:27:21.:27:25.

When you first heard about what happened, what did you feel?

:27:26.:27:29.

Obviously I was very moved by the story, like everyone else. It

:27:30.:27:34.

touched me a bit more being a truck driver myself, thinking about his

:27:35.:27:37.

poor family he left behind, his work colleagues, he worked for his

:27:38.:27:41.

cousin, a family firm, and it touched me in that way. When did the

:27:42.:27:46.

idea come to set up this online fund? I had seen things on the news,

:27:47.:27:52.

programmes about funding and things like that, I looked into it and

:27:53.:27:59.

found Go Fund Me and it seemed like a good idea. The results have been

:28:00.:28:05.

fantastic, you have had a lot of support. Overwhelming, incredible

:28:06.:28:08.

support from all over the world. Unbelievable. It is not just people

:28:09.:28:14.

from the driving community, people from Poland, Britain and all over

:28:15.:28:19.

the world. The Polish community in the UK started spreading it around

:28:20.:28:22.

the world, Polish people around the world and that is how it grew. Most

:28:23.:28:26.

of the money has come from Polish people. That tells you everything,

:28:27.:28:32.

really. I know that the family of Lukasz Urban were really touched.

:28:33.:28:36.

His cousin contacted you and invited you to his funeral. In Banie. That's

:28:37.:28:45.

true, we met the family, lovely people, quiet and unassuming,

:28:46.:28:51.

gracious people. Hospitality is second to none, can't thank them

:28:52.:28:54.

enough and can't wait to see them again. Today is about thanking Dave,

:28:55.:28:58.

from the Polish Embassy in London. Dozens of people have died in parts

:28:59.:29:01.

of central and eastern Europe in the past few days

:29:02.:29:04.

because of bitterly cold weather. In Poland, where ten people

:29:05.:29:06.

died, temperatures fell And heavy snow has fallen

:29:07.:29:08.

in parts of Turkey, Italy Let's speak to our correspondent

:29:09.:29:15.

in Budapest, Nick Thorpe. Yes, it's pretty cold here as you

:29:16.:29:26.

can see. I'm standing across from the Hungarian parliament in

:29:27.:29:30.

Budapest, and the Danube, large ice flows floating down the Danube.

:29:31.:29:34.

Relatively mild in Budapest this morning, only -8, temperatures

:29:35.:29:39.

touched 28 Celsius yesterday on the northern border. In neighbouring

:29:40.:29:45.

Romania, the Eastern carpe diem is, a record -67 was recorded on a

:29:46.:29:49.

mountain peak. -- Carpathian Mountains. Disruption, many schools

:29:50.:29:57.

in and Bulgaria closed. The most vulnerable people, the in the

:29:58.:30:08.

cities, migrants and refugees, moving into Turkey and Greece...

:30:09.:30:12.

Remarkable weather conditions. On the Black Sea coast, snow and ice,

:30:13.:30:18.

difficult conditions in large parts of Eastern Europe today. Nick, thank

:30:19.:30:23.

you. The weather now with Louise. Some of that weather heading this

:30:24.:30:24.

way? Cold, but not that cold. Everything

:30:25.:30:34.

but the kitchen sink thrown at us through the course of this week. We

:30:35.:30:39.

started today mild and wet, but if you are taking a walk across

:30:40.:30:43.

Lancashire, a bit muddy underfoot. It is brightening up as the rain

:30:44.:30:47.

spills down into the south-east corner in the next few hours.

:30:48.:30:51.

Following behind, a scattering of showers and windy. Showers in the

:30:52.:30:56.

far north turning increasingly wintry as they fall across the high

:30:57.:31:01.

ground. Jails are likely to pick up, the wind clearing from the

:31:02.:31:03.

south-east through the middle of the afternoon. -- gales are likely to

:31:04.:31:10.

pick up. And improving picture. Not so across London and East Anglia.

:31:11.:31:15.

We'll have to wait for the end of the afternoon for the rain to clear.

:31:16.:31:20.

A breezy afternoon for Northern Ireland and western Scotland.

:31:21.:31:24.

Waiting in the wings, something more organised will arrive after dark. A

:31:25.:31:28.

pretty dismal end to the day. In the far north. It will be windy with

:31:29.:31:34.

gales blowing the rain through at a pace, a wet night air. Breezy on

:31:35.:31:39.

west facing coast. To much of a breeze for forced to be an issue,

:31:40.:31:43.

two or three degrees to greet us in eastern part. Showers out to the

:31:44.:31:51.

west. Through the day, something more organised starts to drift in

:31:52.:31:55.

across the country. A weak affair in terms of rain, a bit of a nuisance.

:31:56.:32:02.

A bit of cloud around, still quite mild on Tuesday. 7-11 degrees. The

:32:03.:32:07.

colder air starts to did in as the wind swings around on Wednesday.

:32:08.:32:11.

England and Wales, a good deal of drier weather. Increasingly wintry

:32:12.:32:18.

at lower levels. It stays mild to the south, 7-9 degrees. 4-5, further

:32:19.:32:27.

north. As you saw in Europe, a miserable start to the year,

:32:28.:32:29.

particularly across Central and Eastern Europe. Westerly winds

:32:30.:32:32.

starting to drive back the cold air out of Germany, Poland and the Czech

:32:33.:32:35.

Republic over the next few days. A glimmer of better news here. For us,

:32:36.:32:41.

the wind direction swinging from westerly to northerly, and the cold

:32:42.:32:45.

air coming from the Arctic, not Europe, but it is going to turn

:32:46.:32:48.

bitterly cold over the next few days towards the end of the week. That

:32:49.:32:53.

means any showers would turn increasingly wintry, even at lower

:32:54.:32:58.

levels. If you are out and about at the end of the week, more details on
