Political turmoil in Northern Ireland, it is heading for a snap

election after Martin McGuinness quits. He's gone in protest,

accusing his power-sharing partner, unionist Arlene Foster, of refusing

to resign over an energy scandal. We in Sinn Fein will not

tolerate the arrogance A crisis triggered by the so-called

cash for ash scheme - hundreds of millions

:00:44.:00:47.

of taxpayers' money wasted. We'll be asking if there is any way

:00:48.:00:49.

out of the current crisis. It is clear we need

:00:50.:00:52.

to have an honest discussion with the public about the purpose

:01:35.:01:36.

Good evening and welcome to the BBC News at Six.

:01:37.:02:06.

Northern Ireland is in political crisis tonight after the shock

:02:07.:02:09.

resignation of Martin McGuinness, Sinn Fein's Deputy First Minister.

:02:10.:02:13.

Under the power-sharing agreement, this automatically means that

:02:14.:02:16.

the First Minister Arlene Foster - of the Democratic Unionist Party -

:02:17.:02:19.

The resignation comes after Ms Foster rejected Sinn Fein

:02:20.:02:26.

calls on her to step aside while an investigation

:02:27.:02:28.

into her handling of a controversial energy saving scheme ran its course.

:02:29.:02:31.

As our correspondent Chris Page reports, Northern Ireland now faces

:02:32.:02:33.

Martin McGuinness has been Deputy First Minister for a decade. He is

:02:34.:02:43.

evidently suffering from ill health but says he's decided to stand down

:02:44.:02:48.

because of bad relations with Sinn Fein's partners in Government, the

:02:49.:02:54.

Democratic Unionist Party. I have tendered my resignation, effective

:02:55.:02:58.

from five o'clock today. So I believe today is the right time to

:02:59.:03:09.

call a halt to the DUP. This is the culmination of a seemingly

:03:10.:03:12.

insurmountable rift that is developed between himself and Arlene

:03:13.:03:17.

Foster. The crisis stems from a green energy scheme which has run

:03:18.:03:22.

over half ?1 million over budget. Over generous subsidies were paid

:03:23.:03:26.

and it didn't have payment caps. Mrs Foster was in charge of the project

:03:27.:03:30.

when it was set up but she's repeatedly refused calls to

:03:31.:03:34.

temporarily stepped down as First Minister. I'm not stepping aside.

:03:35.:03:39.

I'm the First Minister, I'm the party leader of the DUP, I have a

:03:40.:03:43.

job to do, I'm committed to doing it. The announcement could mean the

:03:44.:03:46.

end of the career of one of the most significant figures in the peace

:03:47.:03:52.

process. He was a paramilitary who became a political leader. In nearly

:03:53.:04:00.

1970s, Martin McGuinness was the IRA's second-in-command in

:04:01.:04:03.

Londonderry. As Sinn fans made electoral gains, his public profile

:04:04.:04:08.

grow. We don't believe winning elections will bring freedom in

:04:09.:04:13.

Ireland, at the end of the day will be... In the 1990s the IRA called a

:04:14.:04:21.

ceasefire. After many years of talks, Martin McGuinness became the

:04:22.:04:25.

joint head of the devolved government, along with the hardline

:04:26.:04:29.

unionist leader Ian Paisley. They got on so well they were nicknamed

:04:30.:04:35.

the Chuckle Brothers. But the partnership between the parties has

:04:36.:04:40.

been tens. Mr McGuinness's decision to go means the Government at

:04:41.:04:43.

Stormont is set to fall. Under the power-sharing system, the first and

:04:44.:04:49.

Deputy First Minister 's work together. When one of them resigned,

:04:50.:04:53.

the other cannot go on in isolation so in effect the devolved government

:04:54.:04:57.

has now collapsed. The likely outcome is a fresh election, though

:04:58.:05:00.

it is possible the Westminster government could bring the parties

:05:01.:05:05.

together for talks. The leader of Stormont's biggest opposition party

:05:06.:05:09.

says it's the end of a field administration. Ten years

:05:10.:05:14.

characterised by disappointments, the bar calls and scandals, I don't

:05:15.:05:17.

think the electorate need any more proof of the fact the DUP and Sinn

:05:18.:05:22.

Fein are incapable of governing this country. The uneasy coalition

:05:23.:05:28.

between the DUP and Sinn Fein has often been unstable. Several times

:05:29.:05:33.

the downfall of devolution has looked likely. The text in Northern

:05:34.:05:44.

Ireland has an uncertain future. -- politics in Northern Ireland has an

:05:45.:05:45.

uncertain future. Our Northern Ireland Political

:05:46.:05:46.

Editor Mark Devenport Politics in Northern Ireland always

:05:47.:05:54.

presents a challenge, where would you put this on the scale of one to

:05:55.:06:00.

ten? It is right up there as ten, a threat to the stability of the

:06:01.:06:06.

institutions here in the decade since devolution was restored with

:06:07.:06:10.

the dominant parties being DUP and Sinn Fein. It is an unlikely quarter

:06:11.:06:14.

this has come from, a green energy scheme, but the row is very deep,

:06:15.:06:18.

covering a number of other issues, and it is hard to see how they will

:06:19.:06:22.

resolve their differences on the other side of what looks like being

:06:23.:06:27.

a very polarising election campaign. All right, Mark, thank you very

much. Being attended to within four hours

:06:34.:06:36.

about the purpose of A Hers's our health

:06:43.:06:49.

correspondent Elaine Dunkley. A departments struggling to cope

:06:50.:07:00.

is a familiar story at this time of year. The NHS is under unprecedented

:07:01.:07:07.

pressure. Today the Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said hospitals on the

:07:08.:07:11.

whole are coping, but warned that high numbers of people using A

:07:12.:07:17.

unnecessarily was putting four our waiting times in jeopardy. It is

:07:18.:07:20.

clear we need to have an honest discussion with the public about the

:07:21.:07:26.

purpose of A departments. There is nowhere outside the UK that permits

:07:27.:07:32.

to all patients that we will sort out any health need within four

:07:33.:07:37.

hours. Since the targets were introduced in 2000, there were

:07:38.:07:42.

nearly 9 million more visits to A departments. NHS England says that

:07:43.:07:47.

this -- 30% of those attending shouldn't be there. If we are going

:07:48.:07:53.

to protect our standard, we need to be clear it is to sort out urgent

:07:54.:07:59.

problems within four hours, but not all health problems however minor.

:08:00.:08:02.

Whilst the Government warned nonemergency cases from going into

:08:03.:08:07.

hospital, Labour Place the problem at the door of Number Ten. This

:08:08.:08:12.

crisis could have been averted. Hospital bosses, council leaders,

:08:13.:08:17.

patient groups, MPs from across the house urge the Chancellor to give

:08:18.:08:21.

the NHS and social care extra money in the Autumn Statement. Those

:08:22.:08:27.

requests fell on deaf ears and we are now seeing the consequences. The

:08:28.:08:30.

Government says it is committed to maintaining that patients are seen

:08:31.:08:33.

within the four-hour waiting time but they must be urgent cases.

:08:34.:08:38.

Theresa May has used her first policy speech of the year to say

:08:39.:08:42.

she wants to make government a force for good, and use the opportunity

:08:43.:08:45.

of Brexit to fundamentally change Britain and create,

:08:46.:08:47.

The Prime Minister also set out a series of measures on mental

:08:48.:08:51.

health in England as the first part of what she called real reform

:08:52.:08:54.

Our political editor Laura Kuenssberg has more.

:08:55.:09:04.

Six months since she walked into the famous street, six months she has

:09:05.:09:11.

been your Prime Minister but piecing together what Theresa May really

:09:12.:09:15.

stands for isn't always easy. But today she made clear she believes

:09:16.:09:21.

for millions live doesn't feel fair and her government can be part of

:09:22.:09:25.

the answer. When you see others prospering while you are not, while

:09:26.:09:29.

you try to raise concerns but they fall on deaf ears, when you feel

:09:30.:09:33.

you're very identity and all that you hold dear is under threat,

:09:34.:09:38.

resentment grows so our responsibility is great. It is to

:09:39.:09:43.

show that mainstream centre ground politics can deliver the change

:09:44.:09:47.

people need. A plain attempt to appeal to middle England. She has

:09:48.:09:57.

that ambition in common with her predecessor, but David Cameron's

:09:58.:09:59.

dream of a big society is gone, the new slogan - is it a vision - in its

:10:00.:10:07.

place. The shared society focuses on the responsibilities we have to one

:10:08.:10:13.

another. It's a society that respects the bombs we share as a

:10:14.:10:19.

union of people and nations. The bonds of family, community,

:10:20.:10:23.

citizenship and strong institutions. And government will step up to

:10:24.:10:27.

support, and where necessary, enforce the responsibilities we have

:10:28.:10:31.

to each other as citizens. But although there were promises of more

:10:32.:10:35.

help for housing in weeks to come, controversial plans for schools, the

:10:36.:10:39.

only new commitments today were the mental health in England. Made with

:10:40.:10:49.

passion, but no extra taxpayers' cash. For too long, mental illness

:10:50.:10:54.

has been something of a hidden injustice in our country, shrouded

:10:55.:10:58.

by a completely unacceptable stigma and dangerously disregarded as a

:10:59.:11:04.

secondary issue to physical health. Left unaddressed, it destroys lives,

:11:05.:11:08.

separates people from each other, and deepens the divisions within our

:11:09.:11:12.

society. But as with all prime ministers, whatever they say on the

:11:13.:11:17.

steps here or anywhere else quickly rubs up with reality. But Theresa

:11:18.:11:21.

May has an extra dilemma, as she starts to manage the most obligated

:11:22.:11:25.

project any leader has faced in decades, there is a risk her

:11:26.:11:30.

government becomes simply consumed with how we leave the European Union

:11:31.:11:34.

and her political enemies say her words ring hollow. If only we could

:11:35.:11:38.

believe she actually meant it. She's been part of the Government now for

:11:39.:11:41.

the last six years which has cut back on public expenditure, savaged

:11:42.:11:49.

the NHS, and she's making these speeches with the backdrop of people

:11:50.:11:53.

literally dying on trolleys while waiting for care in our hospitals so

:11:54.:11:57.

I think there is a credibility gap here. It's only six months but those

:11:58.:12:02.

days of summer already seen long ago. Few prime ministers in the end

:12:03.:12:09.

choose how they are remembered. Laura Kuenssberg, BBC News,

:12:10.:12:10.

Westminster. Well, as we've just heard,

:12:11.:12:12.

Theresa May has signalled a new approach on tackling mental

:12:13.:12:14.

health in England. Ministers say three children

:12:15.:12:17.

in every classroom are likely to be living with a mental health

:12:18.:12:19.

condition and they have plans As part of a series of reports

:12:20.:12:21.

looking at mental health for this programme,

:12:22.:12:26.

our Health Editor Hugh Pym has been taking a closer look

:12:27.:12:28.

at the Prime Minister's plans. It has been nearly two years since

:12:29.:12:41.

Steve... Son took his own life after a short and severe episode of

:12:42.:12:46.

depression. Today visiting his grave he could reflect on a personal

:12:47.:12:50.

campaign to get politicians to take mental health more seriously. A

:12:51.:12:54.

coroner ruled that Edward Mullen was let down by the system. I stood next

:12:55.:13:00.

to my son in this church and made him a promise that I would

:13:01.:13:05.

investigate his tragic end, and at the same time investigate the whole

:13:06.:13:07.

mental health sector in this country. Like many people, I didn't

:13:08.:13:11.

know a great deal about mental health prior to this appalling

:13:12.:13:15.

tragedy, and when you look at the current state of affairs it is an

:13:16.:13:21.

indictment on our system. To see the primaries to come forward is very

:13:22.:13:25.

welcome. One of the key messages from the Prime Minister is that

:13:26.:13:28.

mental health is a challenge for the whole of society and not just the

:13:29.:13:33.

NHS, that's why one of the key initiative focuses on schools and

:13:34.:13:37.

what more they can be doing to spot problems in pupils before they reach

:13:38.:13:44.

crisis point. Schools like this one in Hertfordshire already employ a

:13:45.:13:51.

therapist and train sixth formers as mental health mentors looking out

:13:52.:13:57.

the students who may be struggling. It's about relationships but also

:13:58.:14:01.

schoolwork... The school has welcomed the announcement, but says

:14:02.:14:05.

more resources are needed. In order for other schools to do something

:14:06.:14:11.

similar to us and have in-house therapists, there needs to be

:14:12.:14:14.

funding, especially if councillors are expected to identify vulnerable

:14:15.:14:18.

students. The question is what you do with them once you have

:14:19.:14:22.

identified them. You need to do something with them immediately. The

:14:23.:14:26.

reality is that mental health trusts in England are under severe

:14:27.:14:30.

financial pressure. Analysis by the fund think tank said 40% have

:14:31.:14:42.

budgets cut last year, six were cut three years in a row. It is very

:14:43.:14:47.

worrying because we have had a number of commitments in the past

:14:48.:14:51.

around increasing spend on mental health but that doesn't seem to be

:14:52.:14:55.

translated into extra spending on the ground and it is great having

:14:56.:14:59.

ministers make commitments to mental health but if it's not translated

:15:00.:15:04.

into extra spend, to be frank they are worthless. For this family

:15:05.:15:09.

today, it is an important step on a journey leading towards high-quality

:15:10.:15:13.

mental healthcare and fewer tragic losses of life, but Steve says his

:15:14.:15:19.

campaign is far from over and there is still much more work to be done.

Political turmoil in Northern Ireland as it is heading for a snap

misled about the risks. Nikki and Andy Duffield booked

:17:02.:17:06.

question, are we going to be safe? We were told there would be

:17:07.:17:09.

increased security. But British holiday-makers say

:17:10.:17:19.

security wasn't increased. Alyson Kane and her husband

but he didn't plan the attack alone. Panorama has discovered

he worked closely with the IS cell that planned

:21:39.:21:40.

At the start of the day around a third of Tube stations were

:21:41.:21:45.

closed, gates locked, ticket halls empty.

:21:46.:21:48.

And although almost all lines were running, there was a limited

:21:49.:21:51.

So busy, all the roads are blocked, the buses have come past

:21:52.:21:55.

I've tried to get on three buses this morning so far

:21:56.:21:59.

The way I see it, it kind of is what it is really.

:22:00.:22:05.

The strike involves two unions, the RMT and the TSSA, and is part of

:22:06.:22:12.

a continuing row over jobs and staffing levels which the unions

:22:13.:22:15.

We would much rather have avoided this but we

:22:16.:22:19.

were left with no other alternative because the offer we have been given

:22:20.:22:23.

was wholly unacceptable and wholly unsafe.

:22:24.:22:29.

The London Underground has described this strike as unnecessary

:22:30.:22:32.

although it says that it accepts that more staff are needed.

:22:33.:22:35.

While London's Mayor, Sadiq Khan, says he

:22:36.:22:37.

is taking action to address the unions' concerns.

:22:38.:22:40.

I know that this strike could have been avoided, I

:22:41.:22:43.

know this strike is unnecessary and I'm imploring the trade unions to

:22:44.:22:45.

come back and talk to the management team about resolving this so there

:22:46.:22:49.

aren't further days of industrial action.

:22:50.:22:50.

But for some this will be the start of a week of strikes.

:22:51.:22:53.

Tomorrow 2500 British Airways cabin crew belonging to the Unite union

:22:54.:22:56.

will start a two-day strike over pay although the airline insists all

:22:57.:22:59.

passengers will be able to fly to their destinations.

:23:00.:23:01.

At the same time, commuters in the south-east

:23:02.:23:03.

will face three more days of strikes on the troubled Southern franchise.

:23:04.:23:06.

Today's industrial action has not involved Overground services though

:23:07.:23:08.

some trains were struggling to cope with the extra demand from Tube

:23:09.:23:11.

Clapham Junction, one of the country's busiest stations,

:23:12.:23:20.

was evacuated for a short time because of overcrowding.

:23:21.:23:23.

And many roads have seen extra congestion as

:23:24.:23:25.

commuters tried to find other ways to get to and from work.

:23:26.:23:31.

London Underground warns things will not

:23:32.:23:36.

get back to normal until tomorrow morning.

:23:37.:23:38.

British talent may have triumphed at this year's Golden Globes

:23:39.:23:44.

but once again Donald Trump appears to have stolen the headlines.

:23:45.:23:48.

He's called Meryl Streep "overrated" - that's despite her holding

:23:49.:23:50.

the record for the most Academy Award nominations, ever.

:23:51.:23:52.

The actress had accused Mr Trump of "divisive rhetoric" at last

:23:53.:23:55.

night's awards in California, from where James Cook reports.

:23:56.:24:01.

Yet again Hollywood has been invaded by British acting royalty.

:24:02.:24:04.

In film and in television, stars from the UK

:24:05.:24:06.

are wowing audiences and impressing critics.

:24:07.:24:07.

And what could be more British than the Queen?

:24:08.:24:10.

She has been at the centre of the world for the

:24:11.:24:12.

past 63 years and I think the world could do with a few more women at

:24:13.:24:16.

There were three awards for the cast of the BBC co-production, The Night

:24:17.:24:28.

It's star, Tom Hiddleston, told us he couldn't believe it.

:24:29.:24:43.

I did not expect to win a Golden Globe tonight and I was sat

:24:44.:24:46.

next to Hugh Laurie when he won and I

:24:47.:24:48.

And then when it came to my category, I

:24:49.:24:52.

Another British winner was absent, Olivia Colman is preparing to start

:24:53.:24:57.

But Hugh Laurie was there to pick up his award from

:24:58.:25:07.

the Hollywood Foreign Press Association with a dig at Donald

:25:08.:25:09.

I suppose made more amazing by the fact that I will be able to

:25:10.:25:14.

say that I won this at the last ever Golden Globes.

:25:15.:25:16.

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

:25:17.:25:19.

words Hollywood, foreign and press in the title,

:25:20.:25:21.

Receiving a lifetime achievement award, Meryl Streep also lambasted

:25:22.:25:24.

Disrespect invites disrespect, violence

:25:25.:25:33.

When the powerful use their position to bully others,

:25:34.:25:37.

In the most predictable plot twists, Donald Trump responded

:25:38.:25:40.

Meryl Streep was one of the most overrated actresses in

:25:41.:25:46.

Hollywood, he said, calling the three-time

:25:47.:25:48.

Oscar winner a Hillary flunky who lost big.

:25:49.:25:50.

On the night, though, it was not politics which

:25:51.:25:52.

There were a record seven Golden Globes for the

:25:53.:26:02.

old-fashioned musical La La Land, including acting awards for its

:26:03.:26:04.

And I think that hope and creativity are

:26:05.:26:13.

two of the most important things in the world and that is what this

:26:14.:26:16.

Hollywood can be fun and frivolous but it also prides

:26:17.:26:23.

itself on tackling serious subjects and many stars here on the red

:26:24.:26:25.

carpet are predicting a surge in political

:26:26.:26:29.

year following the most divisive of elections.

:26:30.:26:32.

James Cook, BBC News, at the Golden Globes

:26:33.:26:34.

From California to Britain, let's look at the weather.

:26:35.:26:44.

This is what we had earlier, a low pressure system driving this cold

:26:45.:26:51.

front South with some pretty wet and blustery weather but behind it a

:26:52.:26:55.

good scattering of showers coming in on the wind at its strongest in the

:26:56.:26:59.

north and west of Scotland. That is where it will be wettest as well and

:27:00.:27:04.

it will be quite chilly, three or 4 degrees in towns and cities and

:27:05.:27:07.

lower than that in the countryside so a definite chill in the first

:27:08.:27:12.

thing Tuesday. It should be a bright start for many central and eastern

:27:13.:27:15.

areas, at least in the morning, some more clout the afternoon as patchy

:27:16.:27:21.

rain drifts from west to east. In the afternoon, most of us stay in

:27:22.:27:25.

single figures but in the far south and west, maybe ten or 11 degrees.

:27:26.:27:30.

In the evening, some wetter weather for a time in East Anglia and the

:27:31.:27:33.

south-east and more rain in the north-west and that is in

:27:34.:27:37.

association with a weather front which will bring some rain in

:27:38.:27:41.

northern and western part and this cold front sweeps south. It will be

:27:42.:27:45.

a blustery day on Wednesday, strong winds coming in from the north-west,

:27:46.:27:50.

always fairly chilly. That will bring some showers, mainly in the

:27:51.:27:53.

north and west and not just rain showers, some snow as well, mainly

:27:54.:27:58.

over higher ground. It will be told as well in the wind. The further

:27:59.:28:06.

south and east you go, it should State dry and mild. It will stay

:28:07.:28:10.

cold in the south in the next few days, parts of Germany and Poland

:28:11.:28:13.

are becoming less cold but for us on Thursday, the winds are still coming

:28:14.:28:17.

from the north or north-west, the air coming from Greenland or I stand

:28:18.:28:21.

so really cold later this week and with that the risk of some snow

:28:22.:28:25.

showers, northern and eastern and western part or at risk of some snow

:28:26.:28:28.

and Met Office warnings have already been issued.

:28:29.:28:32.

There is political turmoil in Northern Ireland which is heading

:28:33.:28:40.

for a snap election after Martin McGuinness resigned.

:28:41.:28:40.

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

:28:41.:28:43.

and on BBC One we now join the BBC's news teams where you are.

:28:44.:28:45.
