Tonight: Criticism of the UK government for giving up with enough

want to make things better, not worse. That is a given. Let's talk

:00:20.:00:28.

more. Let's not give up on it. We do not want a situation where large

numbers of parents in Africa decide to send their children off to Europe

like it, they should move. Good evening - it's one

of the enduring rugby rivalries - Wales welcome England in the 6

Nations. But will George North

:01:13.:01:16.

be fit in time? The UK government has given up

:01:17.:01:20.

on a scheme which was set up to protect the most vulnerable child

:01:21.:01:31.

refugees - without That's according to the leader

:01:32.:01:34.

of Torfaen Council. Labour's Anthony Hunt has told this

:01:35.:01:40.

programme that he and other council leaders would work

:01:41.:01:42.

with the Home Office - Ministers say 350 children

:01:43.:01:45.

would have arrived under the scheme So far 32 children have

:01:46.:01:51.

been resettled in Wales. By lights up the sky above Calais in

:01:52.:02:02.

France last year, as the makeshift refugee camp there was cleared.

:02:03.:02:07.

Samina from Newport was part of a volunteer group which took supplies

:02:08.:02:11.

to those living there. Those are children, sleeping and are not those

:02:12.:02:14.

blankets. We had to go to get more blankets. She claims in several

:02:15.:02:18.

short visits over 18 months, she met more than 150 children who had no

:02:19.:02:25.

one at all to look after them. You go there and there are children and

:02:26.:02:29.

they are ten coming 11, 12, male, female, and they are sleeping in

:02:30.:02:34.

tents in minus four Celsius. They are alone and all they have known to

:02:35.:02:38.

do is keep walking, keep walking, keep walking, and then they get to

:02:39.:02:42.

Calais, which is the end of the road, and they don't know where to

:02:43.:02:45.

walk now because all they know is that they lost their parents

:02:46.:02:48.

somewhere along this road and it is the end of the road. From places

:02:49.:02:53.

like Syria, the UK accepted 8000 child refugees in total last year,

:02:54.:02:57.

many believe war zones make their own way to Europe. Many end up alone

:02:58.:03:02.

in camps like this. Some hoped as many as 3000 might be re-settled

:03:03.:03:06.

here who don't have any family or other links to the UK. The

:03:07.:03:10.

Government has confirmed the figure will be far lower than that. Many

:03:11.:03:15.

councils in Wales say that announcement was premature. We have

:03:16.:03:19.

not reached a definite position of what the capacity is yet. This is

:03:20.:03:23.

why this is disappointing that we find out this news, really, that the

:03:24.:03:27.

Government seem to have given up on the situation. Your message to the

:03:28.:03:30.

Home Secretary then as the leader of the Council in Wales? Let's work

:03:31.:03:32.

together and have been stuck in talks. Given the funding and the

:03:33.:03:37.

technicalities, because we want to make things better and not worse,

:03:38.:03:42.

but let's talk more. Owen Smith claimed last night there was more

:03:43.:03:47.

capacity in his area as well. I rang my council leader tonight, assuming

:03:48.:03:50.

we might be asked about this, and asked the council in South Wales how

:03:51.:03:54.

many of these children they have been asked to take. They have taken

:03:55.:03:58.

four. They could take four or five times that. It is a mixed picture

:03:59.:04:03.

across Wales. Some councils say they do have capacity. Others, none at

:04:04.:04:08.

all. Conservative MP David Davis says the UK Government has struck

:04:09.:04:12.

the right balance. The Government are absolutely right to do this. It

:04:13.:04:16.

had to be in place for a short period of time only because

:04:17.:04:19.

otherwise what happens is that parents in countries with much lower

:04:20.:04:23.

living standards will simply try to send their children over by

:04:24.:04:26.

themselves in order to get them into Western Europe and then follow them

:04:27.:04:29.

afterwards. So the Government are right to do this because they are

:04:30.:04:35.

going to create a human catastrophe if you encourage people to send

:04:36.:04:39.

their children off alone. Judges are now considering whether the UK

:04:40.:04:42.

Government's decision was arrived at in the correct way. Home Office

:04:43.:04:46.

maintains it is not giving up on vulnerable children, citing other

:04:47.:04:51.

schemes it operates which also be settled hundreds of child refugees

:04:52.:04:52.

across the UK. It's a disease that

:04:53.:04:58.

affects more than 42,000 people in Wales -

:04:59.:05:03.

and today a campaign is being launched, aimed at reducing

:05:04.:05:05.

people's risk of dementia. It's based on detailed research that

:05:06.:05:07.

found those who adopt a healthy lifestyle,

:05:08.:05:10.

are 60% less likely Since her daughter started

:05:32.:05:33.

and makes me feel better. My dad, who is now 95,

beats most of us, and yet it is He was ever so kind and gentle,

really. Broadcaster Betty George, talking about her husband, David

:06:47.:06:52.

Jones, in an upcoming BBC Wales documentary. He is one of more than

:06:53.:06:55.

42,000 people in Wales suffering from the disease. Nobody would

:06:56.:07:00.

object to a campaign that advises people to eat -- to lead healthy

:07:01.:07:06.

lives, for all sorts of reasons. It won't guarantee, of course, that you

:07:07.:07:10.

would get dementia, because I know of several people who have led very,

:07:11.:07:15.

very happy lives, who now live with dementia. But what concerns me is

:07:16.:07:21.

that it doesn't solve the problems of the here and now. People are

:07:22.:07:26.

already living with dementia and their carers. There is a serious

:07:27.:07:32.

lack of support. If the trajectory continues as it is predicted at the

:07:33.:07:39.

moment, I think the latest districts are from the Alzheimer's Society was

:07:40.:07:43.

that the numbers will double by 2050. Then we have a big problem.

:07:44.:07:49.

It's really a time bomb we are sitting on. In an attempt to stop it

:07:50.:07:54.

from detonating, today's campaign message is simple. But down the pint

from the Welsh Government, and Economy Secretary Ken Skates

:08:10.:08:13.

said it was "great news for Wales." Opponents of the proposed takeover

:08:14.:08:16.

of Wrexham-based Dee Valley Water have been granted leave

:08:17.:08:18.

to appeal the move. The High Court approved

:08:19.:08:24.

an ?84 million takeover by utilities giant

Severn Trent on Wednesday - but shareholders, who called it

:08:26.:08:28.

a "David versus Goliath" The case will be heard

:08:29.:08:30.

by 22 February. The new Shadow Secretary of State

:08:31.:08:37.

for Wales has told this programme that her fellow in peas need to

:08:38.:08:40.

rally behind their leader, Jeremy Corbyn. The Labour MP says she will

:08:41.:08:45.

meet Carwyn Jones next week to discuss their priorities, but says

:08:46.:08:49.

the party's UK leader must take them into the next election in 2020.

:08:50.:08:54.

He is our leader. I form part of his Shadow Cabinet now, which is a

:08:55.:09:00.

tremendous honour, and I shall be working for unity in the party and

:09:01.:09:03.

we have been united since the summer. We have been working so hard

:09:04.:09:04.

We have been working so hard to make it work.

:09:05.:09:08.

A group of AM's are trying to ban under 18's from having

:09:09.:09:11.

so-called intimate piercings because of serious concerns

:09:12.:09:14.

The chair of the Assembly Health Committee, Dai Lloyd,

:09:15.:09:17.

who's also a GP, says such practice could be viewed as

:09:18.:09:20.

Some parlours already set a higher age limit than the law requires

:09:21.:09:23.

and say they'd have no problem if new legislation was introduced.

:09:24.:09:26.

First of all, I'm going to clamp the area. I will then check to see that

:09:27.:09:39.

there is no veins are anything. They keep reforms dozens piercings per

:09:40.:09:42.

week at this parlour in Cardiff. Ashley is having her tongue pierced.

:09:43.:09:46.

Some customers have piercings were intimate parts of their body. Now an

:09:47.:09:49.

assembly committee wants to limit tongue and intimate procedures to

:09:50.:09:53.

the over 18 's, and not 16 which is the recommendation a new public

:09:54.:09:57.

health bill going through the assembly states. There is a large

:09:58.:10:00.

body of opinion that seems to go but this could be exploited to in

:10:01.:10:04.

nature. Actually, nobody wants to curtail people putt-mac freedom of

:10:05.:10:07.

expression. Some of the evidence we took suggested that this could be

:10:08.:10:11.

seen as a form of female genital mutilations, and so we can't ignore

:10:12.:10:15.

that sort of evidence and basically this is why we are going with the a

:10:16.:10:19.

teenage consent. That is perfectly fine. If you are happy to go ahead

:10:20.:10:23.

with that. At this piercing parlour in Cardiff, they have already

:10:24.:10:26.

voluntarily raise the age limit and say they welcome a law change. I

:10:27.:10:35.

think it will give more protection to customers. It is very difficult

:10:36.:10:38.

for us sometimes when we are confronted with a 70-year-old girl

:10:39.:10:42.

who wants to get an internet piercing and we say no and we know

:10:43.:10:46.

that they are going to go to another shot. -- 17-year-old girl who wants

:10:47.:10:53.

to get an internet piercing. I have quite a few body piercings. 23. Do

:10:54.:10:58.

you think it is right that you have to be over 18 to get the more

:10:59.:11:02.

intimate once? Yes, 100%. A spokesman bank 's committee for

:11:03.:11:07.

their consideration and said they would consider their

:11:08.:11:10.

recommendations. I love it. It looks you. -- it looks amazing. Thank you.

:11:11.:11:17.

Still to come in the programme tonight: The roof's open,

:11:18.:11:20.

the fireworks are ready - soon it'll time for

:11:21.:11:22.

We'll look ahead to the big 6 Nations game.

:11:23.:11:28.

Its a row that has split opinion in a small Carmarthenshire village -

:11:29.:11:31.

which language should the children at the local primary be taught in?

:11:32.:11:35.

The decision made by the council was that Ysgol Llangennech

:11:36.:11:37.

would drop its English teaching from September.

:11:38.:11:39.

Its a move welcomed by groups who want more Welsh medium education

:11:40.:11:42.

with one prominent campaigner saying those who don't like hearing

:11:43.:11:44.

It has been a controversial issue in Carmarthenshire. One that has split

:11:45.:12:06.

opinion and lead to fiery exchanges. This is segregation. And at its

:12:07.:12:10.

worst, we are looking at our apartheid. That is how it started.

:12:11.:12:16.

Don't care. But three weeks ago, Carmarthenshire Council voted to end

:12:17.:12:20.

the English stream at Ysgol Llangennech, turning it into a Welsh

:12:21.:12:23.

medium school by September. A leading campaigner for Wilson and

:12:24.:12:26.

which education has suggested people who do not like hearing the line

:12:27.:12:30.

which should move. If people couldn't bear to hear Welsh being

:12:31.:12:33.

spoken they should consider going somewhere where they wouldn't have

:12:34.:12:39.

to speak or hear it being spoken, which obviously suggests they should

:12:40.:12:45.

go to England. He has been a leading member of the campaign group, which

:12:46.:12:49.

has distanced itself from his comments. It says its aim is for

:12:50.:12:54.

Welsh medium education to be available to all who wish their

:12:55.:12:57.

children to be fully bilingual. Meanwhile, parents like this woman

:12:58.:13:03.

who did not wish the school to lose its English stream says it is not

:13:04.:13:07.

about one language being more important than another. What we are

:13:08.:13:11.

fighting for is that the Welsh stream remains and the English

:13:12.:13:15.

stream remains. If they were removing the Welsh team, we would be

:13:16.:13:18.

fighting just as hard. Our school is two languages, English and Welsh

:13:19.:13:23.

tarte side-by-side for the last 60 years. The changes at the school

:13:24.:13:27.

have been controversial, but they do feed into Carmarthenshire was my

:13:28.:13:32.

counsels plans. They are so feed into the Welsh Government's

:13:33.:13:35.

objectives of having a million Welsh speakers by the year 2050. The

:13:36.:13:40.

changes will begin at Ysgol Llangennech in September. The

:13:41.:13:44.

division the row has caused in the community may take much longer to

:13:45.:13:45.

heal. Not too long till

:13:46.:13:56.

the 6 Nations. Big news - major doubts over

:13:57.:13:59.

winger George North. Wales management conceding

:14:00.:14:03.

tonight his fitness is a close call, and they'll leave it late to see

:14:04.:14:08.

whether he's fit enough. All week the headlines dominated

:14:09.:14:11.

by England's record here, coach Eddie Jones saying past

:14:12.:14:14.

players have been petrified when playing here, their record

:14:15.:14:19.

in horrendous, should It depends which

:14:20.:14:21.

figures you look at. Looking at the entire record -

:14:22.:14:31.

135 years of England coming here, first game back in 1882,

:14:32.:14:36.

Wales are on top winning 36, 21 defeats and 4 draws, Wales

:14:37.:14:41.

winning 59% of the games at home. But if you look at more recent

:14:42.:14:51.

record since the game has turned professional,

:14:52.:14:53.

England have won five of the nine Whatever happens, this

:14:54.:14:56.

fixture rarely disappoints, Present at training today, but with

:14:57.:15:15.

the media only allowed to observe for five minutes, there was not long

:15:16.:15:22.

to it is the fitness of fly-half Dan Biggar and George North. Wales say

:15:23.:15:26.

they could wait until an hour before kick-off to decide if the players

:15:27.:15:30.

are worth risking. Dan Biggar, who suffered bruised ribs in Rome, is

:15:31.:15:35.

believed to be making good progress. George North is a major doubt. All I

:15:36.:15:39.

can do is reliable and the medics are telling me. We have done

:15:40.:15:43.

everything they have asked us to up until now and it is always a close

:15:44.:15:46.

call. We have contingency plans in place. We are playing against

:15:47.:15:54.

England, the second-best team in the world. So we have to be ready for it

:15:55.:15:59.

and I think both of them will take the opportunity if it comes their

:16:00.:16:03.

way. Wales- England is always a passionate affair. Over the years,

:16:04.:16:06.

there has been plenty of pre-match psychology. The last time England

:16:07.:16:10.

came to play there was a stand-off. The visitors refused to go out

:16:11.:16:13.

before their Welsh opponents. Tomorrow, some of the faces may be

:16:14.:16:17.

different, but the intensity will be just the same. When both teams run

:16:18.:16:20.

out of the saddle tomorrow afternoon, there will be that

:16:21.:16:24.

familiar more, but there will not be that cauldron atmosphere that Wales

:16:25.:16:29.

love to play in. Because, as England requested, the roof is already open.

:16:30.:16:34.

There has been plenty of pre-match banter between the camps, and with

:16:35.:16:37.

England getting their way over the roof, Robin Wright was in jovial

:16:38.:16:41.

mood today on insinuating Eddie Jones was bringing to changes mind.

:16:42.:16:50.

It is? -- Eddie? No, sorry, mate. In the middle of a press conference.

:16:51.:16:56.

England are unbeaten since the 2050 World Cup. Victory over Wales

:16:57.:16:59.

tomorrow would make it 16 wins in a row, but England start without many

:17:00.:17:07.

of their key ball-mac carriers. We are without quite a few players.

:17:08.:17:12.

They are far from a fall is to rent team and Dylan Hartley is not

:17:13.:17:16.

playing his best game, so Wales have an outside chance. What could make a

:17:17.:17:22.

big difference is the Welsh bench. Two players in particular could make

:17:23.:17:25.

a massive impact, including Sam Davies. When the place arts to break

:17:26.:17:32.

up, you can play that heads up game and put players into holes and make

:17:33.:17:36.

a difference. In the habit in Wells twice since Eddie Jones took charge,

:17:37.:17:40.

but he has not experienced Wales at home is in the six Nations as the --

:17:41.:17:44.

and does not understand the fear factor. And I will think he will get

:17:45.:17:47.

a taster for the first time tomorrow. And if you want to watch

:17:48.:17:51.

all of the matches between Wales and England...

:17:52.:17:56.

It starts tonight with the Under 20s over on BBC Two Wales at 7.

:17:57.:17:59.

Tomorrow, same channel - Wales' women, 11:20 in the morning.

Head Coach Paul Clement, named January's manager of the month,

will consider giving Jordan Ayew his debut

:18:56.:18:57.

The two teams are on level points. And we will not play each other

:18:58.:19:14.

again this season. So it does add a little bit of extra spice to the

:19:15.:19:20.

fixture. Even though we didn't get anything out of our last game, we go

:19:21.:19:24.

into this game is still with a lot of confidence and belief that we are

:20:05.:20:07.

The outdoor facility at Wrexham's Glyndwr University

:20:08.:20:09.

uses animal carcasses, to help students understand

:20:10.:20:11.

Matthew Richards' report contains images which you

:20:12.:20:14.

Well, hidden at a secret location, you're more likely to smell the body

:20:15.:20:26.

Forensic science students assess the effect of the natural

:20:27.:20:30.

environment on decaying bodies - in this case ethically sourced

:20:31.:20:32.

animal carcasses stand in for the human variety.

:20:33.:20:36.

We want to try and make this scenario as realistic to every

:20:37.:20:38.

We want the normal etymology, we want the normal weather

:20:39.:20:44.

and we want it to be as close to the types of scenarios

:20:45.:20:47.

we will be looking at, because the problem we have

:20:48.:20:49.

is if we do things just in the lab, then everything's

:20:50.:20:52.

The subjects are placed in different locations to find out how long

:20:53.:20:56.

All the data could help investigators identify human bodies,

:20:57.:20:59.

establish when they died and even find hidden corpses.

:21:00.:21:05.

There's certain nutrients released when a body decays,

:21:06.:21:07.

which are also beneficial to plants, so hopefully I should see

:21:08.:21:14.

an increase in these nutrients, which hopefully may affect how

:21:15.:21:17.

Forensic science isn't for the squeamish.

:21:18.:21:21.

Three tubs of dead rats in various types of water make

:21:22.:21:24.

Well, I bet you're glad that I get to experience this rather than you,

:21:25.:21:29.

but we've just opened the last box which contains the rats

:21:30.:21:32.

They've been there for some nine weeks and, boy,

:21:33.:21:35.

the smell is certainly testament to that -

:21:36.:21:37.

The body farm could expand to incorporate more experiments,

:21:38.:21:46.

I am not squeamish at all but the smell is definitely something that

:21:47.:21:50.

The body farm could expand to incorporate more experiments,

:21:51.:21:54.

which might be the key element in solving a mystery

:21:55.:21:56.

Well, let's see how the weather is looking for the weekend now. What is

:21:57.:22:03.

It's going to stay on the cold side over the weekend.

:22:04.:22:08.

Some dry weather but also a few wintry showers.

:22:09.:22:11.

And watch out for stronger winds on Sunday.

:22:12.:22:19.

Now the cloud broke today with some sunshine in Bala.

:22:20.:22:22.

And how about these icicles in Blaenavon.

:22:23.:22:31.

The temperature there didn't get much above freezing!

:22:32.:22:35.

Tonight the odd snow flurry in the south and east.

:22:36.:22:40.

Breaks in the cloud with a widespread frost.

:22:41.:22:46.

Temperatures in most places dropping to freezing or below.

:22:47.:22:49.

Here's the picture for 8 in the morning.

:22:50.:22:56.

Cloudy in the north and east and Powys.

:22:57.:22:59.

Parts of the south and west dry and brighter.

:23:00.:23:05.

Some sunshine and frost with a brisk wind on Anglesey.

:23:06.:23:08.

More showers will spread from the NE.

:23:09.:23:14.

A little snow on higher ground, the hills and mountains.

:23:15.:23:28.

Parts of the west and southwest dry and brighter with a little sunshine.

:23:29.:23:31.

Top temperatures 2 and 6 Celsius but feeling colder in the NE breeze.

:23:32.:23:34.

The temperature rising to 4C but feeling more

:23:35.:23:38.

Very cold and cloudy on the Heads of the Valleys tomorrow.

:23:39.:23:42.

Temperature around freezing or just above with icy

:23:43.:24:04.

Sunday's chart shows high pressure over Scandinavia.

:24:05.:24:07.

Low pressure near Portugal and that means stronger winds

:24:08.:24:09.

Parts of the south and west dry and brighter with a little sunshine.

:24:10.:24:15.

Highest temperatures 3 to 6 Celsius but add on the wind it

:24:16.:24:18.

Monday dry, cold and windy but sunnier.

:24:19.:24:34.

A few wintry showers and stronger winds on Sunday.

:24:35.:25:13.

And we return to the stadium before we go. It has been a week of

:25:14.:25:19.

mysterious build-up, hasn't it? But tomorrow things will get serious.

:25:20.:25:23.

Yes, serious, and some decisions possibly for the Wales coaching team

:25:24.:25:28.

with questions over George North, who was entered in the one over

:25:29.:25:34.

Italy last weekend. The team arrived back in the early hours of Monday

:25:35.:25:38.

and went straight into their cryotherapy chambers to help them

:25:39.:25:42.

recover more quickly. They have only had six days to prepare for this

:25:43.:25:46.

England match and there have been questions over the fitness of George

:25:47.:25:51.

North and Dan Biggar. And today, we are given a first sites of George

:25:52.:25:57.

North training. Normally, are cameras are given around 50 minutes

:25:58.:26:01.

to film the players. A bit restricted aid. Just five minutes.

:26:02.:26:06.

-- 15 minutes. The Welsh Rugby controlling what we could and could

:26:07.:26:10.

not film. So we had five minutes of him and he did not move much during

:26:11.:26:13.

training. We will have to wait and see. The Wales management will give

:26:14.:26:17.

him as much time as possible to prove his fitness and could leave it

:26:18.:26:22.

as late as an hour before kick off. So we will have to wait until

:26:23.:26:25.

tomorrow to see whether George North plays against England. We heard the

:26:26.:26:32.

England coach saying that the team can be a little bit intimidated by

:26:33.:26:36.

the atmosphere at the stadium. Just reminded of England's record there.

:26:37.:26:41.

It is looking spectacular they are behind you tonight. Yes, everything

:26:42.:26:47.

is ready for tomorrow's match. Fireworks, pyrotechnics, it is all

:26:48.:26:51.

set for the big showdown between Wales and England. A lot of talk

:26:52.:26:57.

about the record between Wales and England during Cardiff. The overall

:26:58.:27:02.

record that stretches back 135 years is in Wales favour. A look at more

:27:03.:27:06.

recent times, England just edit. They have claimed five victories in

:27:07.:27:10.

nine championship matches here in Cardiff. I just wonder, could

:27:11.:27:14.

experience be the key tomorrow night? Just looking at the foreign

:27:15.:27:20.

words, England have 20 caps between them. Wales on the back row we have

:27:21.:27:25.

140 caps. All of the match live tomorrow on BBC Wales. And you very

:27:26.:27:31.

much. It is going to be quite an occasion. Thank you so much. A

:27:32.:27:36.

reminder of our main story. The UK Government has given up on a scheme

:27:37.:27:39.

set up to protect the most vulnerable child refugees without

:27:40.:27:40.

enough discussion. Our next update is after

:27:41.:27:41.

the BBC Ten o'clock news. For now from all of

:27:42.:27:44.

us on the programme,
