Our headlines tonight: It was like a scene out of a horror

film, the inquest hears - repeat offender Matthew Williams

:00:09.:00:10.

Sport Wales,and the controversy over how it hands out tens of thousands

:00:11.:00:29.

Why are parents having to pay out for signing lessons to communicate

:00:30.:00:37.

It's not just infuriating, it's upsetting to think, I come as a

:00:38.:00:52.

parent, and failing my child. The system is failing my child. Failing

:00:53.:00:57.

in providing people the opportunity to communicate with my child. I

who's been doing rather well. That's how the owner

:01:24.:01:30.

of a Bed and Breakfast, where a 22-year-old woman

:01:31.:01:34.

was killed, has described the moment Mandy Miles told an inquest

:01:35.:01:36.

there was blood everywhere when prison leaver Matthew Williams

:01:37.:01:41.

was found attacking Cerys Yemm at the Sirhowy Arms Hotel in Argoed

:01:42.:01:44.

near Blackwood, in 2014. Williams was tasered

:01:45.:01:48.

by police and later died. You may find some of the details in

:01:49.:01:51.

Caroline Evans' report distressing. It was that this bed and breakfast

:01:52.:02:07.

in November 20 14th that 22-year-old Cerys Yemm was killed by Matthew

:02:08.:02:13.

Williams. This morning the Julie was played on a 999 call made by Iona,

:02:14.:02:19.

Mandy Miles, telling police Matthew Williams was attacking Cerys Yemm

:02:20.:02:22.

with a screwdriver and it looked to her as if he was eating her. She

:02:23.:02:27.

said she's been told that was not the case. Breaking down she told the

:02:28.:02:32.

court how, for the last two years, she's tried to forget what she saw

:02:33.:02:37.

that night. She says she's been told that the reality of the situation

:02:38.:02:41.

was not as she had thought, but the image in her head remains the same.

:02:42.:02:48.

She told how she opened the door and spoke to Matthew Williams, asked

:02:49.:02:52.

him, do you know what you're doing? Her son had shouted to him, that's a

:02:53.:02:57.

girl. He said Matthew Williams looked up and said, that's no girl,

:02:58.:03:03.

and carried on the attack. Cerys Yemm, she believes, was already dead

:03:04.:03:08.

when she opened the door. The Julie heard from a friend of Matthew

:03:09.:03:11.

Williams about, how in the days leading up to the deaths he and

:03:12.:03:16.

Matthew Williams had been partying. Matthew Williams taking drugs, on

:03:17.:03:21.

the night it happened, Cerys Yemm and Matthew had been at his house,

:03:22.:03:25.

and they fail to get Cerys Yemm a taxi home, she left with Matthew

:03:26.:03:30.

Williams. He knew that Matthew Williams had mental health problems,

:03:31.:03:34.

he'd told him that he had loosely did. On that night, he said, Matthew

:03:35.:03:41.

Williams was not right, but not aggressive. The owner of the hotel

:03:42.:03:45.

so she knew nothing of any mental health issues, Sherwood not have

:03:46.:03:49.

agreed to house him if she had. She's at Caerphilly Council, whose

:03:50.:03:55.

she says failed to inform her. In her statement Cerys Yemm's mother,

:03:56.:04:00.

Paula, said two weeks after her death she learned about Cerys Yemm

:04:01.:04:03.

had been warned to stay away from Matthew Williams.

:04:04.:04:06.

Sport Wales, the body that looks after grassroots and elite sport,

:04:07.:04:09.

risked damaging its reputation in the way it awarded contracts.

:04:10.:04:11.

That's according to an internal audit report leaked to BBC Wales.

:04:12.:04:14.

It found that one consultant was given the details of a tender

:04:15.:04:17.

Our political editor Nick Servini reports.

:04:18.:04:26.

Wales former world champion sprinter Jamie Baulch says he's

:04:27.:04:28.

concerned at the current turmoil at sport Wales, the body that funds

:04:29.:04:32.

grass-roots and elite sport, could have an impact on the next

:04:33.:04:35.

The crisis at the top of the organisation that develops

:04:36.:04:45.

grass-roots and elite sport in Wales has intensified tonight.

:04:46.:04:48.

Sport Wales has not been far from the headlines

:04:49.:04:50.

Mainly because of this month, the chair, Paul Thomas, seen

:04:51.:04:54.

here in a BBC Wales programme as a business troubleshooter.

:04:55.:04:59.

In February his activities, as well as those of

:05:00.:05:02.

the entire board were suspended over concerns from the Welsh government

:05:03.:05:05.

The board has since been reinstated, but Mr Thomas B vice-chair remain

:05:06.:05:12.

Now the focus has shifted to the day today running of the

:05:13.:05:18.

The internal audit report found that the

:05:19.:05:23.

Chief Executive, Sara Powell, gave the tender details for a surge

:05:24.:05:26.

contract mentoring staff to a consultant called Sam Wail.

:05:27.:05:31.

The managing director of a business called Unforgiving Minutes.

:05:32.:05:37.

This happened two days before rival bidders received information.

:05:38.:05:42.

The report said this meant there may be

:05:43.:05:44.

a perception of some bidders being given

:05:45.:05:48.

tender process, which may be perceived as undermining the spirit

:05:49.:05:53.

of transparency for public procurement.

:05:54.:05:56.

I've also seen a copy of an e-mail Trail, between Sarah

:05:57.:05:59.

In which they discuss things like where Sam Wail

:06:00.:06:04.

will be based for work, the terms of reference

:06:05.:06:06.

and even payments of up to

:06:07.:06:07.

And this exchange took place a full month before other companies were

:06:08.:06:27.

invited to bid for the work. Then, two days before, Sarah Powell sent

:06:28.:06:34.

an e-mail to Mr whale. I'm not sure how we're going to finalise

:06:35.:06:49.

In the end there was only one tender from Unforgiving Minute the report

:06:50.:06:58.

says know whether companies were unable to respond in the time frame.

:06:59.:07:07.

Sam whale has not responded to an attempt to contact him.

:07:08.:07:08.

Nick Servini is at Sport Wales' headquarters in Cardiff tonight.

:07:09.:07:10.

Nick, what, if anything have they said tonight?

:07:11.:07:18.

Well, Wail Sport Wales saying there is no attempt and have responded to

:07:19.:07:26.

the report with a series of recommendations. It says these have

:07:27.:07:32.

been accepted and, crucially, by the committee here at Sport Wales last

:07:33.:07:36.

week. I think it sends from Sport Wales that any fallout from the

:07:37.:07:40.

report can be contained. An interesting question is what the

:07:41.:07:43.

Welsh government think about it. A short statement from them today

:07:44.:07:48.

saying it is a matter for Sport Wales. Behind-the-scenes some raised

:07:49.:07:52.

eyebrows about the contents of the e-mail that I reported. That,

:07:53.:07:59.

despite that, I don't detect an appetite to get involved here. And,

:08:00.:08:04.

you know, let's not forget. They are already investigating the chair and

:08:05.:08:09.

vice-chair will remain suspended, so I'm sure, unless they can really

:08:10.:08:13.

help it, they don't want to cause any other activities to further

:08:14.:08:19.

unsettle his organisation. As for Sport Wales itself, I suspect it

:08:20.:08:23.

would likely quiet life for the next few months, the question is whether

:08:24.:08:26.

it will be allowed to do that. Mind you.

:08:27.:08:27.

There are calls to improve support and sign language provision

:08:28.:08:29.

Around 90% of children that are deaf have hearing parents.

:08:30.:08:34.

And families are paying hundreds of pounds for British Sign Language

:08:35.:08:38.

lessons which many are unable to afford.

:08:39.:08:41.

The Welsh Government says policies and programmes

:08:42.:08:43.

are in place which recognise the importance of communication.

:08:44.:08:46.

Oliver is a happy-go-lucky three-year-old from Cardiff who

:08:47.:09:00.

loves to play with toy trucks. He is also profoundly deaf. It had a

:09:01.:09:06.

massive impact on myself and our family. We struggled to come to

:09:07.:09:12.

terms with Oliver's hearing loss. Oliver's cochlear implants help him

:09:13.:09:18.

to hear and speak. Without them he can't. His mother has recently

:09:19.:09:22.

completed a beginner 's British sign language course. But that the cost

:09:23.:09:27.

of more than ?350 they can't afford to pay for Oliver's father and

:09:28.:09:33.

sister to have the same lessons. It's upsetting. It feels like my

:09:34.:09:38.

child is being failed. I'm failing my child. The system is failing my

:09:39.:09:44.

child. And really we are ostracising deaf children on a daily basis,

:09:45.:09:48.

because we are not allowing people to communicate with them.

:09:49.:09:52.

The children's Commissioner for Wales says children who are deaf

:09:53.:09:55.

have the same right of anyone else to communicate in their own

:09:56.:09:58.

language. They are only between two and 3000

:09:59.:10:03.

deaf children up to the age of 19 in Wales, we are not talking enormous

:10:04.:10:08.

numbers here. I don't think they are getting help they need and we should

:10:09.:10:12.

be providing more. At Cardiff's deaf club they've

:10:13.:10:15.

started a programme which brings hearing and deaf families together

:10:16.:10:18.

and provides opportunity to learn BSL for free.

:10:19.:10:25.

One of the difficulties is that that key moment BSL was recognised by the

:10:26.:10:32.

Welsh government, back in 2007. But it's not an official language, which

:10:33.:10:38.

means there is no legislation actually linked to the BSL act.

:10:39.:10:44.

Really, it is the third language in Wales. It's difficult for parents to

:10:45.:10:49.

access the correct teaching, the support linked to BSL.

:10:50.:10:54.

The Welsh government has increased the number of qualified interpreters

:10:55.:10:58.

and says it spent ?20 million improving support for those with

:10:59.:11:02.

additional learning needs. Oliver hasn't started school yet, but his

:11:03.:11:06.

family hope you'll get the right support to ensure he has every

:11:07.:11:07.

opportunity to flourish. Police in South Africa investigating

:11:08.:11:09.

the murder of a couple originally from the Cynon Valley are searching

:11:10.:11:12.

for a second man. Roger and Christine Solik were found

:11:13.:11:14.

dead in a river last month. Xolani Brian Ndlovu is wanted

:11:22.:11:28.

to get a majority of AMs to back a bill that would protect the names

:11:29.:11:34.

of houses, farms, fields, The Welsh Government said

:11:35.:11:37.

the proposals were not feasible. The director of BBC Cymru Wales has

:11:38.:11:44.

warned that the Welsh representative on the UK's new BBC board will need

:11:45.:11:47.

to be appointed quickly if they're to influence the way

:11:48.:11:50.

the organisation works. Rhodri Talfan Davies' comments come

:11:51.:11:54.

after the Welsh government vetoed the UK government's choice

:11:55.:11:56.

for the position. The recruitment process

:11:57.:12:00.

will be reopened. The investigation into allegations

:12:01.:12:04.

of child sexual abuse against the former Speaker

of the House of Commons, Viscount Tonypandy has

endedwith no further action. South Wales Police say

:12:10.:12:11.

the complainants have been told. George Thomas, a former

that he inappropriately touched someone on a train from London

50,000 EU migrants working here earning an average salary

:14:33.:14:36.

than UK born workers. In the latest in our series

Paul Martin has been to meet one business owner

reliant on EU workers. Loosening up ahead of the new

:14:50.:15:02.

cricket season. It's not just on the pitch at the Morgan's stage where

:15:03.:15:08.

work is going on. A quality service has had the contract to clean the

:15:09.:15:15.

stadium for the last six years. Robin's company employs nearly 300

:15:16.:15:23.

staff, more than 100 from the EU. The people I work for a kind with

us. Everything is good for us here. It's a good job for us. I can hear

:15:31.:15:37.

for work and I want to apply for university. This job offers me the

:15:38.:15:42.

opportunity to go there. It's a good thing for me, you know. I want to

:15:43.:15:47.

stay here because I love everything here. Robbins says recruitment used

:15:48.:15:52.

to be difficult until the upsurge in EU immigration midway through the

:15:53.:15:56.

last decade. So how will his business cope after Brexit with days

:15:57.:16:00.

of free movement of labour from the EU almost certainly coming to an

:16:01.:16:05.

end? Ukip Assembly Member Dave Rowlands has come to listen to

:16:06.:16:10.

Robin's concerns. When we recruit we advertise for

:16:11.:16:15.

cleaners. In whatever form they are. We don't get the amount of local

:16:16.:16:20.

people apply for those jobs that we want. Why is that? What can be done?

:16:21.:16:27.

You're going to take away that was all three have now. We must make it

:16:28.:16:31.

worthwhile for people... In what respect? From an income point of

:16:32.:16:37.

view. Not that you have to pay them more. Perhaps it is better to remain

:16:38.:16:41.

unemployed with all the benefits available.

:16:42.:16:48.

What can I do about that? That's out of our. Absolutely

:16:49.:16:52.

nothing. But the ethos of what's going on has to change. Dave

:16:53.:16:56.

Rowlands says he doesn't want to pull up the drawbridge on foreign

:16:57.:16:59.

labour. This was done and a Visa system.

:17:00.:17:05.

People came in and visas. But Robin could also apply for those people to

:17:06.:17:10.

stay because he could prove that they were necessary for the

:17:11.:17:13.

expansion of his work. He thinks the emphasis should be on

:17:14.:17:17.

getting more unemployed locals into work.

:17:18.:17:22.

Robin pays good salaries and good wages. Why wouldn't Welsh people, or

:17:23.:17:26.

Welsh youngsters, want to take up those jobs?

:17:27.:17:34.

Is he right, Robin? I hope so. We have expansion plans. We are

:17:35.:17:38.

probably one of the fastest-growing businesses in South Wales. We hope,

:17:39.:17:43.

but as David said, they will make sure businesses like ours are looked

:17:44.:17:48.

after and we will have the resources we need within south Wales and the

:17:49.:17:52.

West to expand as our plans want us to.

:17:53.:17:55.

There is currently a work permit system in place for non-EU citizens,

:17:56.:18:00.

limiting entry to skilled workers in professions where there are

:18:01.:18:04.

shortages. But we don't yet know if that is Theresa May's preferred

:18:05.:18:08.

option, nor the impact that would have on a business like Robin's.

:18:09.:18:15.

Downing Street says a letter sent by the secretary of state/ in his

:18:16.:18:19.

delight that the sacked government adviser Lord Heseltine was advising

:18:20.:18:23.

ministers was a clerical error. Alun Cairns rushed to all Welsh MPs

:18:24.:18:27.

yesterday saying with the expertise of Lord has the time they would soon

:18:28.:18:31.

be in a position to come to an agreement on the Swansea -based city

:18:32.:18:35.

deal. Lord Heseltine was sacked last week after rebelling in the House of

:18:36.:18:37.

What's stopping more Welsh teenagers getting

:18:38.:18:41.

It's a question that has been asked for years,

:18:42.:18:45.

today some of the brightest and best A level students in Wales gathered

:18:46.:18:48.

in Newtown alongside representatives from some of those colleges.

:18:49.:18:50.

Our Education correspondent Colette Hume joined them.

:18:51.:18:59.

Oxford, the University of choice for 27 British Prime ministers. And a

:19:00.:19:06.

byword for academic excellence. But latest figures show that less than

:19:07.:19:12.

2% of first-year undergraduates and at Cambridge University come from

:19:13.:19:18.

Wales. Rafael is one of the success stories. The 18-year-old from fringe

:19:19.:19:23.

has a place at Harvard University in America.

:19:24.:19:26.

Even if you think you can't make it, give it a go. I never thought I

:19:27.:19:31.

would get into Harvard, but they did.

:19:32.:19:35.

The network was set up by the Welsh government two years ago following

:19:36.:19:38.

concerns that too few Welsh teenagers were replying to the

:19:39.:19:42.

world's best universities. At this conference today some of the

:19:43.:19:45.

country's brightest and best are talking to those universities. In

:19:46.:19:50.

August Oxford University will hold its first ever summer school

:19:51.:19:55.

specifically for Welsh students. We want to demystify Oxford and we want

:19:56.:19:59.

them to realise we encourage applications from all people, we are

:20:00.:20:03.

looking for the brightest comet doesn't matter where you from.

:20:04.:20:07.

Oxford is a place they can see as part of their futures.

:20:08.:20:10.

Ministers have admitted they need to do more to push the most able

:20:11.:20:12.

pupils. What this is about is providing the

:20:13.:20:16.

brightest and most able students with a platform that enables them to

:20:17.:20:20.

achieve and fulfil their potential in the best universities in the UK,

:20:21.:20:24.

Wales and across the world. This was Jacob Lew was getting his

:20:25.:20:27.

A-level results in Nantgarw last summer.

:20:28.:20:35.

For a start of! He's now in his first year and Cambridge and is the

:20:36.:20:38.

first member of his family to go to university. Today his advice was

:20:39.:20:45.

simple, aim high. Honestly, you have absolutely nothing to lose, and

:20:46.:20:49.

potentially a place at the best university in the UK to gain.

:20:50.:20:55.

So do it? Do it! These students are some of the brightest and best in

:20:56.:20:59.

the country. It's helped even more of them will apply to the best

:21:00.:21:01.

:21:02.:21:05.

consecutive game when they play France in the Six Nations

The horse is owned by a syndicate of seventeen people who drink

Aled Scourfield went to meet them as they prepare for To be

This is normally a quiet corner of South premature. Cresswell key is

who follow him all the way to Cheltenham. It's been such a

:22:07.:22:12.

roller-coaster ride. I've never, ever expected him to win a race. I

keep saying he can't win, then he does it again and again. He loves

racing. He comes from the back, you can see he enjoys it. When he goes

:22:24.:22:28.

around the paddock his head is bouncing. What do you think the

:22:29.:22:33.

party would be like if he winds? See that roof? It will be raised about

:22:34.:22:38.

five foot in the year I think. The Cheltenham Festival is the highlight

I'd like to think he'll have a good race. I still think if he can come

normally the meeting place for the local hunt, but horse racing has

captured the hearts of the locals. We've won already. We are at

Cheltenham. Let's hope the horse and jockey come around safely. Members
