Hello, this is Breakfast, with Louise Minchin and Dan Walker.

:00:00.:00:00.

The British ambassador to the EU resigns and tells his staff

:00:07.:00:12.

to challenge "muddled thinking" and "speak truth to power"

:00:13.:00:15.

after he resigned ahead of Brexit talks.

:00:16.:00:17.

Sir Ivan Rogers strongly criticised the government's preparations

:00:18.:00:19.

for leaving the EU saying senior ministers needed to hear

:00:20.:00:22.

what he called "unvarnished" and "uncomfortable" views.

:00:23.:00:41.

Also this morning: After a Paralympian wet herself on a train

:00:42.:00:49.

because the disabled toilet was out of action,

:00:50.:00:51.

the Government tells Breakfast it will tighten up the rules around

:00:52.:00:54.

A charity warns that a lack of basic care for asthma patients in the UK

:00:55.:01:01.

could "cost lives," as it suggests over three million people

:01:02.:01:03.

The pay gap between men and women in their 20s has narrowed

:01:04.:01:13.

to its lowest level ever, but if you're in your 30s or 40s

:01:14.:01:16.

In sport, a fantastic comeback from Arsenal,

:01:17.:01:25.

who came back from 3-0 down with 20 minutes left to draw

:01:26.:01:28.

The Natural History Museum prepares to dismantle Dippy the diplodocus.

:01:29.:01:36.

After 100 years in the same spot, the dinosaur is going on tour.

:01:37.:01:41.

It is a cloudy start for England and Wales Cricket Board in with some

:01:42.:01:53.

drizzle. It will brighten up, though, particular central and

:01:54.:01:56.

eastern areas. A cold start for Scotland and Northern Ireland with

:01:57.:02:01.

some clear skies. Some sunshine, if you wintry showers but a keen wind

:02:02.:02:03.

down the North Sea coast. More details on the

:02:04.:02:04.

weather in 15 minutes. Britain's outgoing ambassador

:02:05.:02:06.

to the European Union, Sir Ivan Rogers, has strongly

:02:07.:02:10.

criticised the government's In his resignation letter he said

:02:11.:02:12.

he didn't know what ministers' negotiating objectives

:02:13.:02:16.

were and called on his colleagues to challenge what he

:02:17.:02:18.

called muddled thinking. Our diplomatic correspondent,

:02:19.:02:20.

James Landale, reports. Sir Ivan Rogers has been Britain's

:02:21.:02:35.

ambassador to the EU for three years and his criticisms about the

:02:36.:02:38.

government's repressions for Brexit will be hard to ignore. In his

:02:39.:02:43.

resignation e-mail he says there is a short supply of... And he says...

:02:44.:02:55.

He reveals that even he does not know what the government's

:02:56.:02:59.

negotiating objectives for Brexit will be. But it is Sir Ivan implicit

:03:00.:03:06.

and thinly veiled criticism of ministers that is most telling. He

:03:07.:03:10.

urges fellow officials never to be afraid to speak truth to power and

:03:11.:03:14.

to challenge what he calls muddled thinking and ill founded arguments.

:03:15.:03:18.

He says they should support each other in difficult moments when they

:03:19.:03:22.

have to deliver messages that are disagreeable to those who need to

:03:23.:03:26.

hear them. So, Sir Ivan's charge is a serious one, that the government

:03:27.:03:31.

isn't ready for Brexit and it is ignoring the advice of its

:03:32.:03:32.

diplomats. Our political correspondent

:03:33.:03:34.

Iain Watson joins us from How serious is this for the

:03:35.:03:44.

government? He is clearly an incredibly experienced man. He is

:03:45.:03:48.

very experienced. Some people want Britain to leave the EU. They say he

:03:49.:03:53.

is too experienced, he knows Brussels too well and they want to

:03:54.:03:57.

replace him with someone who wants Brexit. Irrespective of your views

:03:58.:04:01.

on the referendum it is a significant departure for the

:04:02.:04:09.

following reasons, part -- in part went the BBC revealed he was

:04:10.:04:13.

suggesting it might take 10 years to get a trade deal. That was based on

:04:14.:04:16.

calls with people from other EU nations. He is therefore saying it

:04:17.:04:23.

is important that people who represent Britain challenge muddled

:04:24.:04:26.

thinking by ministers. For me, the most significant thing in this

:04:27.:04:30.

letter is when he says, I quote, we don't know what the government will

:04:31.:04:35.

set as it is negotiating objectives with the EU. This isn't about the

:04:36.:04:40.

detail, it is the broad brush in or out, partially out of the customs

:04:41.:04:47.

you union and the single market. If we are leaving the EU in a few

:04:48.:04:51.

months, the government will have to answer this criticism. They will be

:04:52.:04:57.

grateful that MPs at Westminster don't return until next week, so

:04:58.:05:03.

they cannot be dragged to the House of Commons to answer questions this

:05:04.:05:07.

week, but it raises questions about how other ministers are handling

:05:08.:05:10.

their negotiations. Thank you for that. Plenty of questions will arise

:05:11.:05:11.

from that. And in half an hour we'll be

:05:12.:05:13.

speaking to the Shadow Secretary Meanwhile, the UK's countryside

:05:14.:05:17.

and wildlife could suffer post Brexit, according to a cross

:05:18.:05:21.

party committee of MPs. Farmers could also face a loss

:05:22.:05:24.

of subsidies according to the report by the Environmental

:05:25.:05:27.

Audit Committee. It calls for new laws to ensure

:05:28.:05:29.

existing protections for farming are not weakened once

:05:30.:05:32.

Britain leaves the EU. The Government says it is committed

:05:33.:05:34.

to safeguarding and improving them. Former drivers for a private

:05:35.:05:38.

ambulance firm that provides emergency cover for the NHS say

they were given just an hour's A company based in Essex called

:05:42.:05:44.

the Private Ambulance Service is contracted to respond

:05:45.:05:53.

to emergencies during busy times. The company says the level

:05:54.:05:55.

of training of its staff exceeds Two thirds of asthma patients

:05:56.:05:58.

in the UK aren't receiving the basic care needed to manage

:05:59.:06:03.

their condition according They say that although the figures

:06:04.:06:04.

are slightly better than a year ago, almost 3.5 million people

:06:05.:06:13.

are still at risk. The charity has warned that this

:06:14.:06:15.

failing could "cost lives," Being on the right medication and

:06:16.:06:27.

knowing how to use it is vital if you have asthma. So too is having

:06:28.:06:32.

regular checkups and getting tailored advice on how to manage

:06:33.:06:38.

your condition. This year's annual asthma care survey shows most people

:06:39.:06:42.

with asthma are not receiving this basic care, that is around 3.6

:06:43.:06:48.

million people in the UK. In 2015 in the UK nearly one and a half

:06:49.:06:52.

thousand people died from asthma attacks. The highest level in a

:06:53.:06:57.

decade. According to Asthma UK, two in every three asthma deaths could

:06:58.:07:04.

be avoided with better care. Most patients think the care they receive

:07:05.:07:10.

is satisfactory or excellent, but few get the full package of basic

:07:11.:07:16.

care. NHS England says every asthma patient should be supported to

:07:17.:07:19.

manage their condition and offered regular reviews. And it is not just

:07:20.:07:26.

medical staff who need to do more, according to Asthma UK, who say

:07:27.:07:29.

people with asthma must take responsibility for their own care

:07:30.:07:30.

too. West Yorkshire Police have carried

:07:31.:07:33.

out further searches overnight after a man was shot

:07:34.:07:35.

and killed by officers Yassar Yaqub died on Monday evening

:07:36.:07:38.

after police in unmarked vehicles stopped a car just off

:07:39.:07:42.

the M62 in Huddersfield. Phil Bodmer is close

:07:43.:07:45.

to where the shooting happened. Phil, what is the latest

:07:46.:07:51.

in this investigation? Good morning, Louise. Yes, the slip

:07:52.:08:06.

road at Junction 24 on the M62 finally reopened before hours after

:08:07.:08:10.

it was closed on Monday night following the fatal shooting. The

:08:11.:08:17.

IPCC are investigating circumstances leading to that event. Yesterday the

:08:18.:08:21.

man who died was named as 28-year-old Yassar Yaqub, a father

:08:22.:08:27.

of two from Huddersfield. That is to the south-east of the town. Last

:08:28.:08:31.

night we understand there were a number of peaceful protest which

:08:32.:08:36.

were held in the Leeds Road and Wakefield Road areas of Bradford.

:08:37.:08:40.

Police were deployed to ensure the proteas were peaceful. Police say

:08:41.:08:44.

they understand tensions in some communities may be heightened as a

:08:45.:08:47.

result of what happened here on Monday night, but they say those

:08:48.:08:52.

protests passed off very peacefully. Meanwhile the Independent Police

:08:53.:08:56.

Complaints Commission commissioner Derek Campbell has issued a

:08:57.:09:00.

statement and he as my thoughts are with Yassar Yaqub's family and those

:09:01.:09:04.

affected at this difficult time. Although it is early stages of the

:09:05.:09:08.

investigation will be complex and they are appealing for patients from

:09:09.:09:13.

people within the local community. Today later we are expecting a

:09:14.:09:17.

postmortem into the victim and also five people still remain in custody

:09:18.:09:22.

in connection with what happened here on Monday night -- appealing

:09:23.:09:25.

for patience. The difference in what a woman

:09:26.:09:26.

in her 30s or 40s will earn compared to a man is still growing,

:09:27.:09:30.

according to new research. The Resolution Foundation study

:09:31.:09:32.

suggests that while the gender gap for people born since the millennium

:09:33.:09:35.

is narrowing, women will still earn significantly less then their male

:09:36.:09:38.

colleagues throughout their careers. It's being reported

:09:39.:09:40.

that the convicted mass murderer, Charles Manson, has

:09:41.:09:43.

been taken to hospital. Media reports say that

:09:44.:09:46.

Manson, who is in his 80s, has been moved to a hospital

:09:47.:09:49.

about an hour away from California's Corcoran State prison

:09:50.:09:52.

where he is being held. He's serving nine life terms

:09:53.:09:54.

for ordering a wave of killings An earthquake was detected 100 miles

:09:55.:09:57.

from Scarborough last night. The British Geological

:09:58.:10:06.

Survey says the tremor, which was in the North Sea,

:10:07.:10:08.

happened just before 7pm yesterday Wondering if anybody felt that.

:10:09.:10:26.

Yeah, if you felt it, let us know. Do.

:10:27.:10:28.

A couple who were forced to spend the night in the Scottish Cairngorms

:10:29.:10:32.

have spoken of their relief at being rescued.

:10:33.:10:34.

Robert and Cathy Elmer were reported missing on Sunday night

:10:35.:10:37.

and sheltered in a bivvy bag before rescuers reached them

:10:38.:10:39.

Yesterday, another man was saved from the mountain range,

:10:40.:10:43.

All right, have a look at this video.

:10:44.:10:51.

Heroes come in all shapes and sizes, including extra small

:10:52.:10:54.

This video captures the moment a chest of drawers falls onto two

:10:55.:10:59.

year old Brock Shoff just as he was playing in the bedroom.

:11:00.:11:02.

What follows is an impressive feat of cool-headed action and impressive

:11:03.:11:05.

strength from his twin brother, Bowdy, who rescues him.

:11:06.:11:08.

The boys parents have released the footage to highlight concerns

:11:09.:11:10.

over the safety of children and tall furniture.

:11:11.:11:14.

Oh my God. It is amazing and horrifying. It is two minutes long

:11:15.:11:21.

and it takes a while to work it out, but he does work out how to get his

:11:22.:11:26.

brother out of there. He tries to figure out how to lift it, and any

:11:27.:11:30.

figures out he can push it back. It is one of those, isn't it? That is

:11:31.:11:34.

why we gave you a warning, but amazing and terrible video at the

:11:35.:11:40.

same time. Look the furniture. -- look after the furniture.

Janet Jackson's given birth to her first child.

:11:44.:11:45.

The younger sister of Michael Jackson, who is 50,

:11:46.:11:47.

She is said to have had a stress-free delivery.

:11:48.:11:51.

The singer stopped a world tour last April, telling her fans

:11:52.:11:54.

she was planning a family with her husband.

:11:55.:11:56.

I wonder if people told her about the "Be careful of furniture" rule.

:11:57.:12:11.

Apparently Arsenal were singing, "This is embarrassing" when they

:12:12.:12:13.

were losing. It all turned around. Arsenal staged a remarkable comeback

:12:14.:12:17.

from 3-0 down to draw 3-3 at Bournemouth in the

:12:18.:12:20.

Premier League last night. Olivier Giroud's stoppage-time goal

:12:21.:12:22.

completed the fightback. A 2-1 win at Crystal Palace moved

:12:23.:12:26.

Swansea City off the bottom of the table on the day

:12:27.:12:31.

they appointed Paul Clement Hull City are now bottom,

:12:32.:12:34.

and last night they parted company The 54-year-old was appointed

:12:35.:12:38.

full time in October. Sir Andy Murray has got his year

:12:39.:12:44.

off to a winning start. The world number one beat

:12:45.:12:47.

France's Jeremy Chardy in straight sets to reach the second

:12:48.:12:50.

round of the Qatar Open. You will notice, did anyone notice

:12:51.:13:00.

anything unusual about what I said at the start? Andy Murray. Not

:13:01.:13:06.

calling him sir. Why, 'cause...? He is... Totally! I am not so sure he

:13:07.:13:13.

is desperate to be called it yet. I think occasionally... If he is

:13:14.:13:20.

wearing a suit. OK, Sire Andy. He spoke about it, he said when at

:13:21.:13:24.

Wimbledon he doesn't want to be known as Sir Andy, because they

:13:25.:13:28.

might have to put on the scoreboard Sir Andy Murray. He is only 29.

:13:29.:13:33.

LAUGHTER I think that's great. Are you done? I am done. I think what I

:13:34.:13:41.

was doing is in the technical term "Filling in". Just walk in, it is

:13:42.:13:48.

fine. Oh, they you go. Very nice this morning, isn't it? What have

:13:49.:13:52.

you got? The front of the Daily Mail, talking about the NHS, they

:13:53.:13:56.

say hospital shouldn't collude with ambulance chasing lawyers and the

:13:57.:14:00.

head of the NHS has warned it yesterday. I rather like this

:14:01.:14:03.

photograph, Sir Paul McCartney... LAUGHTER Mellow on a day with his

:14:04.:14:12.

daughter. He has got out of the sea and put his towel around her. It is

:14:13.:14:17.

just really cute. I love that. Has it got you, that? It has got me this

:14:18.:14:21.

morning. Lots of talk about the Brexit story this morning, the front

:14:22.:14:26.

of the times, quitting over the Brexit, Sir Ivan Rogers, the main

:14:27.:14:30.

story on the Telegraph as well, Theresa May to pick Brexiteer in

:14:31.:14:37.

Brussels. At a first-time writer who spent 10 years putting together a

:14:38.:14:41.

book about her father's struggles with dementia and she has won a

:14:42.:14:45.

literary award. A real mixed bag, the papers today. The main story,

:14:46.:14:53.

lunchtime today they say FTSE bosses rake in ?28,200 each in 2017, so in

:14:54.:14:59.

just, what are we, the fourth day, the same an average worker will earn

:15:00.:15:03.

in a year. The front of the Sun talking about an engineer's dream of

:15:04.:15:07.

buying his ideal home in tatters after developers banned him from

:15:08.:15:13.

parking his work van. And after... Your top interviewed. Yes, all of

:15:14.:15:17.

the quotes inside the paper. I told you that was interesting. You know

:15:18.:15:21.

the main stories. How can I follow that?

:15:22.:15:26.

There is one main story for the business pages. You will note Mexico

:15:27.:15:37.

promised to move manufacturing, $1.6 billion factory in Mexico, it will

:15:38.:15:44.

no longer do that. Tax and regulatory reforms proposed by the

:15:45.:15:47.

President-elect led to its decision to invest instead $700 million in

:15:48.:15:53.

Michigan. If you read further down, you will realise those proposed

:15:54.:15:57.

changes included a 35% tax imposed on any cars that were built in

:15:58.:16:03.

Mexico, but brought back to the US. President-elect Donald Trump

:16:04.:16:06.

claiming that as a victory for his bring jobs home campaign. But

:16:07.:16:11.

nonetheless, not going down too well with some of the manufacturers who

:16:12.:16:14.

said it could cost them more. Very impressive. I am not afraid to ask

:16:15.:16:21.

for help. Help me. I am bringing you a story that is desperately sad. It

:16:22.:16:27.

is about Paul Gascoigne. Once hailed as a national hero, they are now

:16:28.:16:30.

calling his tour around the country, where he gives talks to audiences

:16:31.:16:39.

and it is called Victorian freak show. You can't argue with many of

:16:40.:16:44.

the things they say. It is really brutally honest. It is horrible

:16:45.:16:48.

because he was such a hero. He was such a great footballer. Yet we are

:16:49.:16:52.

sort of obsessed with his downward spiral. People keep putting a camera

:16:53.:16:58.

at him. We want to hear what he has to say, but he obviously does still

:16:59.:17:02.

face a terrible battle with alcoholism that he has spoken about

:17:03.:17:06.

at length. He still struggles with that gets it describes all of the

:17:07.:17:11.

time. On the other side, he needs to earn a living. What will he do? His

:17:12.:17:15.

stories are all he has now. It is sad. Thank you. We have talked about

:17:16.:17:23.

this man. He is an ultra marathon runner, and he ran across the Gobi

:17:24.:17:28.

desert. This little dog was adopted by him. He ran with him for miles

:17:29.:17:33.

and miles. Then he had to leave her behind. He has raised lots of money

:17:34.:17:38.

and she is now back with him in the UK. He just found her in the desert.

:17:39.:17:46.

She is called Gobi. I was distracted by Ben. This is the cutest picture

:17:47.:17:52.

in the papers. The new babies born in Bangkok dressed as chickens, as

:17:53.:17:58.

you can see. It is Chinese year of the Rooster, beginning later this

:17:59.:18:01.

month. I think all babies should be born like that. You definitely win a

:18:02.:18:05.

picture of the day. That is the cutest thing I have seen. After all

:18:06.:18:11.

of the bad news, this story. And Q. Dogs, babies. We were going to have

:18:12.:18:18.

Indiana Jones, but we will have that later. A little tease, Indiana Jones

:18:19.:18:20.

for you later. Aid shall be started the day for

:18:21.:18:30.

most of us but it will turn colder through the day. Fairly cloudy -- a

:18:31.:18:37.

cold start through the day. A fair bit of cloud and some drizzly

:18:38.:18:42.

conditions and patchy rain will stop cold air is feeding in. It will come

:18:43.:18:49.

further south to the course of the day. One or two pockets of frost in

:18:50.:18:55.

the south bursting. There is a bit more cloud around and patchy rain.

:18:56.:18:59.

We have drizzle here and there. Nothing too significant. Not as cold

:19:00.:19:04.

as it was this time yesterday. Six Celsius in London by the time we get

:19:05.:19:09.

to eight o'clock. As we travel further north, behind the weather

:19:10.:19:15.

front, a cold start. Frost around. The odd pocket of fog, but it should

:19:16.:19:19.

not be problematic. A lot of sunshine for the word go. Parts of

:19:20.:19:23.

Northern Ireland Singh sunshine. Where we have the weather front

:19:24.:19:28.

extending into parts of Northern Ireland into England and Wales, more

:19:29.:19:32.

cloud and drizzle. Into the south-west, a cloudy start through

:19:33.:19:37.

the day. The wind is a feature. Gusty winds blowing down the North

:19:38.:19:43.

Sea. Whipping up some big waves. As well, some showers coming onshore,

:19:44.:19:47.

especially in East Anglia. Some could be wintry. No heatwave in

:19:48.:19:53.

prospect. 1-5. If you are under the cloud in the weather front, 7-8. Not

:19:54.:19:58.

as God. As the weather front pushes down towards the south-west, look at

:19:59.:20:02.

the temperature dropping overnight -- cold. -20 -3 in towns, be in the

:20:03.:20:13.

countryside, -4 oh -6, and even lower locally -- -2 or monastery.

:20:14.:20:22.

Should not be too much of a problem. The air is dry. A fine day tomorrow

:20:23.:20:28.

for many areas with sunshine. These are the remnants of the weather

:20:29.:20:32.

front across south-west England and parts of the west of Northern

:20:33.:20:36.

Ireland to producing cloud and spots of rain. Later, another weather

:20:37.:20:40.

front will show its hand. Looking at the progress of that one, it comes

:20:41.:20:44.

in during Thursday into Friday. You can see how it pivots and brings

:20:45.:20:49.

rain southwards. Before it does, boasting on Friday morning, there

:20:50.:20:54.

will be fog around. Also some ice and frost. Here comes the rain

:20:55.:20:58.

during Friday pushing steadily southwards accompanied by gusty

:20:59.:21:02.

winds. Behind it, a return to showers, and ahead of a bright

:21:03.:21:07.

skies. It will not feel as cold unless you are in Norwich.

:21:08.:21:12.

Elsewhere, ten, 11 or the highest single figures. That leads us into a

:21:13.:21:16.

milder weekend as well. We really have some cold on the way. Thank you

:21:17.:21:18.

so much. See you shortly. You might have seen

the Paralypian Anne Wafula when she said she was forced to wet

:21:23.:21:24.

herself in a wheelchair on a train because it didn't have

:21:25.:21:30.

a working disabled toilet. It is a really distressing story and

:21:31.:21:37.

she said two was robbed of her dignity.

:21:38.:21:41.

I was embarrassed, humiliated. I felt they had taken away my dignity.

:21:42.:21:52.

I was a nobody, I felt. I felt as though I did not exist.

:21:53.:21:53.

Well, since then the government has told BBC Breakfast

:21:54.:21:56.

that it is looking for better ways to enforce the Equalities Act.

:21:57.:21:59.

And later today, campaigners will call for more accesible

:22:00.:22:02.

facilIties such as a changing table and a hoist.

:22:03.:22:04.

At least a quarter of a million people in the UK need these,

:22:05.:22:08.

Our disability correspondent Nikki Fox has more.

:22:09.:22:16.

Spending a day at the shops is something so many of us do. But for

:22:17.:22:23.

Maria and Ryan, it is not a pleasurable experience. Ryan is

:22:24.:22:26.

autistic and needs a bathroom with the right amount of space and

:22:27.:22:30.

equipment to allow this man to tension. But there are not that many

:22:31.:22:38.

around. -- to change it. Would you put your mum or your sister on the

:22:39.:22:42.

floor to change them if they were still wearing nappies? Would you

:22:43.:22:46.

walk into a public toilet in your bare feet? Does that give you some

:22:47.:22:53.

sort of idea of what I have to do? It is this kind of problem that

:22:54.:22:57.

affects at least a quarter of a million people in the UK. This woman

:22:58.:23:02.

can look after her son at home because she has all of the kitchen

:23:03.:23:06.

aids. But it is a whole different matter when they leave the house. --

:23:07.:23:12.

kit she needs. It is hard to find a suitable public toilet. How does

:23:13.:23:17.

that impact you? Very hard. We can't go out for a full day. But there is

:23:18.:23:22.

an answer. A fully accessible bathroom like this. The bathroom of

:23:23.:23:27.

James. There are only 900 of these changes places across the UK. It is

:23:28.:23:32.

absolutely huge. It is the creme de la creme of bathrooms. When I came

:23:33.:23:38.

in here with Josh, my son, the first thing would be to bring the ceiling

:23:39.:23:45.

track Hoist over. Before it opened, dawn would have to change Josh on

:23:46.:23:50.

toilet floors. That is disgusting. You don't change people on the

:23:51.:23:54.

floor. My son obviously had been through chemo. He got a massive

:23:55.:23:59.

infection risk. At the end of this life for the last two years, he was

:24:00.:24:03.

severely oxygen dependent. Shortly before he died, Josh open this

:24:04.:24:08.

facility. It meant he could rest, which was really important for us,

:24:09.:24:12.

because it meant he could continue to go out and experience life. It

:24:13.:24:19.

has taken four years for Maria to secure the funding for a changing

:24:20.:24:23.

places toilet in her local shopping centre in Crawley. They are not

:24:24.:24:29.

cheap. Coming in at around ?18,000. There is currently no legal

:24:30.:24:33.

obligation to provide one. Councils say cuts to funding mean they have

:24:34.:24:37.

had to make tough choices about public facilities. But they are

:24:38.:24:41.

working with local businesses to try to tackle the problem. It is not

:24:42.:24:45.

much from outside at the moment, but this is where the changing place

:24:46.:24:50.

will be. They have every right to be able to toilet in the correct way.

:24:51.:24:55.

So to have this facility is giving them their basic humid rights of

:24:56.:24:59.

being able to go to the toilet in public. But safely, securely,

:25:00.:25:04.

hygienically, and dignified -- human rights. Towns and cities are

:25:05.:25:11.

beginning to take the changing places on, but there are still a

:25:12.:25:14.

substantial part of the population who can't do the things so many of

:25:15.:25:16.

us take for granted. Real difficulties the people. We

:30:49.:30:54.

for you this morning. But now a summary of this

:30:55.:30:56.

morning's main news. Britain's outgoing ambassador

:30:57.:30:58.

to the EU, Sir Ivan Rogers, has strongly criticised

:30:59.:31:01.

the government's preparations for In his resignation letter,

:31:02.:31:03.

he urged his colleagues to continue to challenge what he called muddled

:31:04.:31:06.

thinking and ill-founded arguments. He added that ministers need to hear

:31:07.:31:08.

the "unvarnished" views from Europe And in about ten minutes we'll be

:31:09.:31:12.

speaking to the Shadow Secretary A cross party committee of MPs says

:31:13.:31:17.

that Brexit poses a significant threat to the UK environment

:31:18.:31:26.

and they are calling for new laws to ensure existing

:31:27.:31:29.

protections are not weakened. In their report, the Environmental

:31:30.:31:31.

Audit Committee says that farmers are also facing brexit concerns

:31:32.:31:33.

including loss of subsidies Here's our environment

correspondent Matt McGrath. From the cleanliness of Britain's

:31:37.:31:44.

beaches to the protection of birds and habitats, much of the UK's

:31:45.:31:47.

environmental and wildlife legislation is rooted in EU

:31:48.:31:49.

directives and regulations. The government has said it

:31:50.:31:56.

will transfer many of these into UK law when Britain leaves the EU

:31:57.:31:59.

but recognises that about one third of the existing rules will be

:32:00.:32:02.

difficult to incorporate. To ensure there is no

:32:03.:32:08.

weakening of safeguards, the Environmental Audit Committee

:32:09.:32:11.

says a new Environmental Protection Act should be in place

:32:12.:32:13.

before Brexit is complete. European law protects huge amounts

:32:14.:32:19.

of the UK's environment, farming and countryside,

:32:20.:32:22.

and the process of leaving the EU presents a huge risk

:32:23.:32:29.

to all of those protections, which is why,

:32:30.:32:31.

in our report, we are calling for a new Environmental Protection Act

:32:32.:32:34.

so that when we leave the EU, we are no worse off protected

:32:35.:32:37.

than we are at the moment. The MPs say that Brexit also

:32:38.:32:41.

threatens British farmers, with the removal of EU subsidies,

:32:42.:32:43.

the possibility of tariffs on exports and greater competition

:32:44.:32:47.

from other countries. In response to the report,

:32:48.:32:49.

the government says the UK has a long history of wildlife

:32:50.:32:56.

and environmental protections and is committed to safeguarding

:32:57.:32:58.

and protecting these. Former drivers for a private

drawers falls onto a two -year-old child, but the child is OK - it is

:35:13.:35:14.

worth looking at the pictures. This video captures the moment

:35:15.:35:21.

a chest of drawers falls onto two-year-old Brock Shoff just

:35:22.:35:24.

as he was playing in the bedroom. What follows is an impressive feat

:35:25.:35:27.

of cool-headed action and impressive strength from his twin brother,

:35:28.:35:37.

Bowdy, who rescues him. The boys parents have released

OK, it is so watchable and also un- watchable at the same time. The

:35:49.:35:52.

second wobble, when it was about to go back down. They are OK. And it is

:35:53.:35:56.

a serious thing, you need to make short... He was lucky his brother

:35:57.:36:00.

was there. That is why it they give you those things, a little tag at

:36:01.:36:04.

the back with a screw thread, so you can screw it in. To attach it to the

Yeah. Oh, OK. You are a terrible mother. LAUGHTER I don't need you to

from last night if you are an Arsenal fan. It was going well for

Bournemouth, but everything changed. A remarkable comeback from Arsenal

but Arsenal fought back and a stoppage-time header

fourth. When you're 3-0 down you have as

:36:51.:37:02.

well to acknowledge the quality of your team in order to come back to

3-3, but not everybody can do that, so... Mixed feelings tonight, but

:37:09.:37:13.

you have as well to recognise that my team showed great mental

:37:14.:37:14.

strength. A 2-1 win at Crystal Palace moved

right to become captain at the moment. He came to the camps, he has

:39:09.:39:12.

worked hard. A pre- requisite to get to the England side is to be very

:39:13.:39:17.

fit. And not playing games, it means he has got to go and and

:39:18.:39:22.

unbelievably stringent fitness program over the next five or six

:39:23.:39:26.

weeks, and he is doing that, so he is putting himself in the best

:39:27.:39:29.

position to continue as captain. Ready for a little bit of

:39:30.:39:30.

understatement? GB Taekwondo say they have

:39:31.:39:33.

reservations about double Olympic champion Jade Jones taking part

in the Channel 4 programme The Jump. You can understand why, though,

:39:36.:39:40.

can't you? ..following serious injuries to some

competitors on last year's show. Jones, who receives funding from UK

in the programme, which teaches Cyclist Sir Bradley Wiggins

:39:50.:39:52.

and Paralympian Kadeena Cox are among the figures

:39:53.:39:59.

from sport also taking part. It's interesting, isn't it, because

:40:00.:40:07.

over the years more and more sports people seem to be wanting to get

:40:08.:40:11.

involved with the program as well, haven't they? You have to be tough

:40:12.:40:15.

to do that show, because the training is immense. Very, very

:40:16.:40:19.

competitive. And with a massive insurers premium! Yes, yes. 6:40am

:40:20.:40:24.

exactly. The man who was supposed to be a key

:40:25.:40:25.

figure in the negotiations for getting Britain out of Europe

:40:26.:40:29.

has not only resigned from his job, but he's also written a letter,

:40:30.:40:33.

strongly criticising the way the government is

:40:34.:40:36.

preparing for Brexit. The UK's outgoing ambassador

:40:37.:40:37.

to the EU, Sir Ivan Rogers, unexpectedly quit early and has

:40:38.:40:40.

urged his colleagues Joining us now from Westminster

:40:41.:40:42.

is Barry Gardiner, Shadow Secretary Good morning to you, thank you for

:40:43.:40:53.

your time this morning on Breakfast. Now, Sir Ivan has made way, one

:40:54.:40:59.

person in place for the Brexit process, it seems a sensible option,

:41:00.:41:04.

doesn't it? Well, look I think government policy appears to be to

:41:05.:41:08.

shout down anybody who tells some things that they don't want to hear.

:41:09.:41:15.

I regret that. I think often when you shoot the messenger you end up

:41:16.:41:20.

shooting yourself in the foot. I think that the government needs to

:41:21.:41:23.

be careful now in ensuring that we have the experience that is required

:41:24.:41:28.

in order to conduct successful negotiations. One can't simply

:41:29.:41:33.

surround oneself with people who tell you what you want to hear. You

:41:34.:41:39.

have to know what the reality is of the other side of the negotiations,

:41:40.:41:42.

take that on-board and then negotiate the toughest and best deal

:41:43.:41:47.

for the UK. I understand what you're saying, but he has appeared to have

:41:48.:41:53.

criticised the PM's trade position, so don't you need someone who stands

:41:54.:41:57.

with the government on this? It is OK to say, this is the point of

:41:58.:42:02.

view, but it is an important negotiation, but they have to sing

:42:03.:42:06.

from the same sheet? Look, in any negotiation it is important that,

:42:07.:42:12.

you're quite right, people are united in achieving the best result

:42:13.:42:19.

for the country, but Sir Ivan is a man who has been private secretary

:42:20.:42:23.

to the Prime Minister, to the Chancellor, he has been the head of

:42:24.:42:31.

public affairs at Barclays, Citibank, he was head of tax at the

:42:32.:42:37.

Treasury, this is an extremely distinguished civil servant that we

:42:38.:42:42.

are talking about, and somebody who knew the European Union particularly

:42:43.:42:46.

well. He had actually been chef to cabernet to the vice president of

:42:47.:42:51.

the European Union. When he says, look, this is what these people are

:42:52.:42:55.

thinking, this is what these people are trying to do, it you take that

:42:56.:43:02.

as intelligence that you need to factor into your own negotiating

:43:03.:43:08.

position. And it really is, I think, very dangerous for the government

:43:09.:43:12.

simply to rubbish people like that. They should listen carefully, they

:43:13.:43:16.

should take on board. And what we now need is to ensure that whoever

:43:17.:43:22.

it is that replaces Sir Ivan is someone with an equally

:43:23.:43:24.

distinguished record of public service. I hate seeing the civil

:43:25.:43:32.

service either politicised or turned into "Yes people", I think we need

:43:33.:43:38.

someone with a distinguished record, as Sir Ivan had, and someone who

:43:39.:43:45.

really has that fundamental grasp of how our partners in this negotiation

:43:46.:43:49.

from Europe are going to be thinking. We need the best deal for

:43:50.:43:55.

the UK. OK, can I ask you one more because you mentioned the civil

:43:56.:43:59.

service, and the former UKIP Leader, I am sure you know, Nigel Farage,

:44:00.:44:02.

says the Foreign Office needs a clearer because, from his point of

:44:03.:44:06.

view, there are too many Remain supporters making the job more

:44:07.:44:09.

difficult. What would you say to that? Look, civil servants, whatever

their private views might be, act in the best interests of the public and

:44:17.:44:21.

in accordance with government policy. We have for many years in

:44:22.:44:28.

this country had a civil service that operates in -- impartially and

:44:29.:44:35.

irrespective of their own private views. To try and politicised the

:44:36.:44:40.

civil service is really scandalous. It is the sort of refuge of a

:44:41.:44:48.

scoundrel. What we need to do is recognise and respect the experience

:44:49.:44:52.

that our civil servants have, to take note of it and to ensure that

:44:53.:44:56.

we then I able to negotiate a deal that is going to make us more

:44:57.:45:01.

prosperous in this country outside of the EU. There is no point in us

:45:02.:45:05.

ending up going through these negotiations ignoring everybody who

:45:06.:45:10.

says it may be difficult, it may take time, and then finding that,

:45:11.:45:14.

"Oh, well, we might be poorer, we might be out of work, but actually

:45:15.:45:19.

at least we are in charge of our demise," that is not what we want

:45:20.:45:24.

and not what anyone who voted to leave the EU wants. We must be more

:45:25.:45:28.

prosperous at the end of this, not poorer. Thank you for your time on

:45:29.:45:32.

Breakfast is morning. It is good to talk to you.

:45:33.:45:42.

I am getting the time it right this year, that is my new Year's

:45:43.:45:52.

resolution. Let's talk to Carol. It will be sunny today, eventually, and

:45:53.:45:58.

frosty tonight. A widespread frost. We have this weather front sinking

:45:59.:46:01.

southwards and taking more cloud and patchy rain with it. A cold feed is

:46:02.:46:08.

coming in behind. The wind will come from a northerly direction through

:46:09.:46:12.

the day. This front continues to drift south and cold air will follow

:46:13.:46:16.

behind it. First thing this morning, a lot of cloud. Some pockets of

:46:17.:46:22.

frost in Dorset and Hampshire. By no means widespread. The cloud is

:46:23.:46:29.

producing the odd spot of patchy rain or drizzle. Into northern

:46:30.:46:33.

England, cloud around but also clear skies. It is a cold start across

:46:34.:46:41.

parts of Scotland with frost. Wintry showers across Shetland and

:46:42.:46:44.

Aberdeenshire. Across Northern Ireland, the south Seas more cloud.

:46:45.:46:48.

Cold with clearer skies in the north-east. That is where we have

:46:49.:46:51.

the weather front draped across Wales and into the Midlands. A lot

:46:52.:46:56.

of cloud with patchy rain. Into the south-west, a cloudy start for you

:46:57.:47:00.

as well. The other thing you will notice is the keen wind coming down

:47:01.:47:05.

the North Sea coastline. That will whip up big waves and Bush showers

:47:06.:47:11.

in across part of the coastline, especially through North Norfolk.

:47:12.:47:19.

Sunshine will follow behind with temperatures of five at best in the

:47:20.:47:22.

sunshine. Where we have bigger cloud towards the west, seven or eight.

:47:23.:47:26.

Under clear skies by evening, temperatures shootdown, represented

:47:27.:47:30.

by the blues in towns and cities. -2, but in the countryside, even

:47:31.:47:36.

lower. Possibly even minus seven. Widespread frost to start the day

:47:37.:47:41.

tomorrow. Some patchy fog is possible. Tomorrow promises to be a

:47:42.:47:45.

fine day with a fair bit of sunshine. There will be bits of

:47:46.:47:49.

cloud floating around, and the remnants of the weather front

:47:50.:47:52.

affecting parts of south-east England, the west of Northern

:47:53.:47:55.

Ireland, and splashes of rain. Later, we see this next system

:47:56.:47:59.

introducing more wet and windy weather. The weather front coming

:48:00.:48:03.

from the north and pivoting around and pushing southwards. Before that

:48:04.:48:10.

happens, it will be a cult start on Friday morning with frost. We are

:48:11.:48:14.

more likely to see fog patches as well. The front starts to push

:48:15.:48:16.

steadily southwards accompanied by blustery winds. Behind it, still

:48:17.:48:20.

some showers and a wee bit of brightness. But unless you are in

:48:21.:48:25.

Norwich, it will feel much milder then it will in the next couple of

:48:26.:48:30.

days. Thank you. A bitter bid cold on the way. Good to know. We need a

:48:31.:48:36.

bit of information from Carol. Men and women earn roughly the same

:48:37.:48:39.

when they're in their 20s, but men are still earning more

:48:40.:48:42.

in their 30s and 40s. Good morning. Yesterday we spoke

:48:43.:48:54.

about women's products costing more than men when it came to things like

:48:55.:48:56.

toiletries. Today is about pay. The Resolution Foundation has been

:48:57.:49:01.

looking at average pay for men And they say the gender

:49:02.:49:04.

pay gap is closing, For the baby boomers,

:49:05.:49:08.

working in the '60s and '70s, men earned substantially more

:49:09.:49:14.

than women for doing the same job. In the '80s, or Generation X,

:49:15.:49:17.

that gap has narrowed to 9%. those in their 20s will find

:49:18.:49:22.

the pay gap still exists - but it's at its lowest

:49:23.:49:30.

ever level, just 5%. Laura Gardiner is

:49:31.:49:35.

Senior Policy Analyst Good morning. As we highlighted,

:49:36.:49:51.

there has been some progress. That gap is narrowing. We are still not

:49:52.:49:56.

equal pay, though? As you highlighted, the progress in the

:49:57.:50:00.

early stage of careers, when people are in their 20s, it is something we

:50:01.:50:05.

should celebrate. For millennial is, the gender pay gap is mist half

:50:06.:50:09.

compared to the generation who came before. There is still a pay gap and

:50:10.:50:15.

we need to think about why that is, but one thing we might highlight is

:50:16.:50:20.

that although more women are graduating with degrees than men,

:50:21.:50:24.

there is still a significant pay gap between male and female graduates.

:50:25.:50:28.

It has not shifted that much over time. Really good progress in the

:50:29.:50:31.

early stage of careers, but still more to understand and more to do to

:50:32.:50:37.

really eradicate that gap. Is there an element of legacy problems? You

:50:38.:50:41.

can see why people in their 40s up to 60s, they are earning different

:50:42.:50:46.

amounts. But for people sitting out today doing an identical job,

:50:47.:50:50.

whether they are a man or woman, why are they not pay the same? The

:50:51.:50:56.

gender pay gap does not just measure identical jobs. Includes the fact

:50:57.:51:00.

that men and women do different jobs at different stages of careers, a

:51:01.:51:05.

mix between equal pay, different choices and constrain choices. You

:51:06.:51:09.

talk about the 40s, 50s and 60s, but although we are celebrating the

:51:10.:51:14.

closing of the gender pay gap, the generation born since 1980, it

:51:15.:51:26.

suggest the old challenges around when women start to have children

:51:27.:51:30.

really enjoyed the young women today to the extent that they can expect a

:51:31.:51:33.

significant lifetime earnings penalty compared to them our

:51:34.:51:41.

counterparts. Those other problems. But what can businesses do to get

:51:42.:51:45.

rid of the gap? We should recognise the great progress we have made down

:51:46.:51:51.

to changes in government policy on things like maternity pay. The

:51:52.:51:55.

really big challenges remain around when women have children, and that

:51:56.:52:00.

is what will hit hard for the millennial generation. We need to

:52:01.:52:04.

think about the penalties associated with part-time working, which is all

:52:05.:52:08.

too often a choice made by women due to things like high childcare costs.

:52:09.:52:13.

They might start on the salary that is the same as men, but progression

:52:14.:52:18.

and promotion is hard to come by. We need to change that in business. So

:52:19.:52:22.

that business and employee response, is there is social response to this

:52:23.:52:26.

as well, but maybe more men should consider taking the burden of

:52:27.:52:30.

childcare more so it is not just the onus on the women to take time off

:52:31.:52:34.

work and not be working and therefore suffered that gap later in

:52:35.:52:40.

life? Each family makes its own choices and no business or

:52:41.:52:43.

government to get in the way of that. But nearly half of women would

:52:44.:52:48.

be up for sharing their parental leave with their partner, and

:52:49.:52:53.

legislation was brought in last year so that could happen. But the

:52:54.:52:56.

take-up has been small. Obviously it will take time. But there is more

:52:57.:53:00.

appetite among both men and women for a more equal sharing of

:53:01.:53:04.

child-rearing responsibilities. We have some policy change in place,

:53:05.:53:09.

but progress is still to be made to embed that and increase parental

:53:10.:53:14.

leave in particular. Thank you for explaining all of that. That is all

:53:15.:53:18.

from me for now. After seven o'clock, I will have the Christmas

:53:19.:53:24.

figures. Thank you. It is interesting to get the nitty-gritty

:53:25.:53:26.

of that. Dinosaurs haven't roamed the earth

:53:27.:53:27.

for around 65 million years, but one by the name of Dippy

:53:28.:53:30.

is about to embark on something He will travel around

:53:31.:53:33.

museums across the country, but first, there's the small

:53:34.:53:37.

matter of dismantling him. Breakfast's Tim Muffett

:53:38.:53:39.

is with him now. Good morning. I remember this so

:53:40.:53:49.

well from a childhood. If you have ever been to the Natural History

:53:50.:53:53.

Museum in London, and more than 5 million people every year do that,

:53:54.:53:57.

there is a good chance you have stood where I'm standing now and

:53:58.:54:03.

looked up at Dippy the diplodocus. He or she, nobody really knows,

:54:04.:54:08.

arrived in 1905, and has been on display in this, this hall, in the

:54:09.:54:15.

museum since 1979. But today is the last date you will be able to see

:54:16.:54:20.

Dippy in this spot. The dismantling process is about to get under way

:54:21.:54:26.

before a UK tour, which will last for two years. Before we find out

:54:27.:54:30.

how they will take Dippy down, here are a few facts and figures

:54:31.:54:34.

delivered by some visitors to the museum.

:54:35.:54:37.

# everybody everybody walked the dinosaur

:54:38.:54:45.

# Opened the door, get on the floor...

:54:46.:54:56.

# Dippy is made up of 292 bones. Dippy is a plaster cast replica of a

:54:57.:55:00.

skeleton found in Wyoming in the USA in 1988. Dippy has been viewed by

:55:01.:55:07.

more than 90 million visitors. Dippy will be going on a two-year tour

:55:08.:55:11.

around the UK and will be replaced here by the skeleton of a blue

:55:12.:55:15.

while. We are a little sad because Dippy sort of feels like an old

:55:16.:55:21.

friend, part of the family. # I walked a dinosaur #.

:55:22.:55:29.

It gives people an opportunity to see an amazing dinosaur that perhaps

:55:30.:55:33.

they would not be able to see at all. # open the door, get on the

floor # Everybody walked the dinosaur...

taking Dippy around the UK. Where do you begin? We start taking no Mike

all of the rib cage, and some of these plaster of Paris beats weigh a

will photograph is a noted condition, and then we will

carefully label it. The UK tour gets under way and the dates and places

:56:41.:56:44.

of that tour should be on the screen now. Why have you chosen the various

:56:45.:56:50.

places, and how hard will be to put Dippy together again in all of those

:56:51.:56:55.

places. All of those pieces have a compelling story. Dippy will be free

:56:56.:57:00.

at the point of entry and each place is excited to have nomad. We will do

:57:01.:57:04.

a whole series of events reaching millions of people. Schools, adults,

:57:05.:57:08.

different groups. We are really excited about that. We have chosen

:57:09.:57:12.

eight venues and there will really be great in terms of Dippy being an

:57:13.:57:16.

ambassador for nature and natural history. That'll be great. We have a

:57:17.:57:23.

three-year tour essentially starting. It will be a blue while

undertaking, to take that apart. -- blue while. It is like flatpack

circumstances it was diplodocus. Dipladocus?

Britain's outgoing ambassador to the European Union,

:03:25.:03:27.

Sir Ivan Rogers, has strongly criticised the government's

:03:28.:03:30.

In his resignation letter he said he didn't know what ministers'

:03:31.:03:34.

negotiating objectives were and called on his colleagues

:03:35.:03:36.

to challenge what he called muddled thinking.

:03:37.:03:38.

Our diplomatic correspondent, James Landale, reports.

:03:39.:03:43.

Sir Ivan Rogers has been Britain's ambassador to the EU for three

:03:44.:03:47.

years, and his criticisms about the Government's preparations

:03:48.:03:49.

In his resignation e-mail, he says there is a short supply of:

:03:50.:04:02.

He reveals that even he does not know what the Government's

:04:03.:04:10.

negotiating objectives for Brexit will be.

:04:11.:04:13.

But it is Sir Ivan's implicit and thinly veiled criticism

:04:14.:04:16.

He urges fellow officials never to be afraid to speak truth

:04:17.:04:23.

to power, and to challenge what he calls muddled thinking

:04:24.:04:27.

He says they should support each other in difficult moments

:04:28.:04:32.

when they have to deliver messages that are disagreeable to those

:04:33.:04:34.

So, Sir Ivan's charge is a serious one -

:04:35.:04:41.

that the Government isn't ready for Brexit and it is ignoring

:04:42.:04:44.

Our political correspondent Iain Watson joins us from

:04:45.:04:50.

How difficult position does this put the government in? A very difficult

:04:51.:05:06.

one. Diplomats are expected to be diplomatic, that should be a key

:05:07.:05:11.

part of that to -- job description. The resignation letter from Sir Ivan

:05:12.:05:15.

Rogers was far from diplomatic and it gives the government difficulties

:05:16.:05:21.

on several fronts. Firstly, how do they replace him? The process still

:05:22.:05:26.

isn't clear. A timetable for the replacement are still isn't clear at

:05:27.:05:33.

the clock is ticking. To reason they will be pressing that button to

:05:34.:05:38.

start the process of leaving the EU in just a few months' time.

:05:39.:05:45.

Secondly, Sir Ivan was, from the backroom, thrust into the limelight

:05:46.:05:52.

in a way he clearly didn't like. I think anyone else wanted to take

:05:53.:05:57.

that role will be under no illusion that their position will be

:05:58.:06:01.

scrutinised like never before. Let me dissuade some well-qualified

:06:02.:06:06.

candidates. The third in years, the key passage which you mentioned in

:06:07.:06:13.

this resignation letter which is of course the person meant to represent

:06:14.:06:23.

us, this most senior figure, is saying that the big picture, not the

:06:24.:06:26.

detail, the big picture, still hasn't been settled. He doesn't know

:06:27.:06:31.

what the government's strategy will be and his replacement will have to

:06:32.:06:35.

find out pretty quickly and the government will be delighted that

:06:36.:06:38.

this resignation letter if it was going to come at all, at least came

:06:39.:06:43.

when MPs are not here at Westminster and can't call ministers to account.

:06:44.:06:49.

:12:00.:12:03.

in her 30s or 40s will earn, compared to a man is still growing

:12:04.:12:07.

according to new research. The Resolution Foundation study

:12:08.:12:10.

suggests that while the gender gap for people born since

:12:11.:12:12.

the millennium is narrowing, women will still earn significantly

:12:13.:12:15.

less then their male colleagues It's being reported

:12:16.:12:17.

that the convicted mass murderer, Charles Manson, has

:12:18.:12:22.

been taken to hospital. Media reports say that Manson,

:12:23.:12:23.

who is in his eighties, has been moved to a hospital

:12:24.:12:26.

In his resignation letter he urged colleagues from Brussels to

:13:21.:13:26.

challenge muddled thinking and in -- and ill founded arguments. Joining

:13:27.:13:31.

us from Westminster is Anne-Marie Trevelyan who sported Brexit. I am

:13:32.:13:37.

sure you have seen Nick Clegg are saying this is a body blow to the

:13:38.:13:42.

government. How do you see it? I was able to read to the resignation

:13:43.:13:45.

letter overnight. I think he makes it clear that as he was planning to

:13:46.:13:50.

retire in October of this year and his number two Sean Morgan was

:13:51.:13:54.

planning to go to the Welsh government civil service he felt,

:13:55.:13:58.

and I agree with him, that we should have a full team that will take us

:13:59.:14:02.

through the whole two-year Brexit negotiation process and he feels it

:14:03.:14:06.

is right to step off now that the Prime Minister can get a team in

:14:07.:14:10.

place it will take us right through. I understand why you are trying to

:14:11.:14:14.

deflect attention from what he said in a letter because some of it is

:14:15.:14:17.

pretty harsh, talking about model inking, basically saying there is no

:14:18.:14:23.

preparation -- muddled thinking. That is a stark warning, isn't it? I

:14:24.:14:27.

agree with him in part. Someone who was active on the Brexit side right

:14:28.:14:33.

up until June or back in February when Sir Ivan was tried to negotiate

:14:34.:14:36.

a deal with David Cameron so that those of us on the Brexit side might

:14:37.:14:40.

be persuaded that leaving the EU completely wasn't necessary because

:14:41.:14:43.

the EU understood that Britain needed a very different

:14:44.:14:48.

relationship. There was no discussion or success in the

:14:49.:14:51.

negotiation which is why so many people across Britain voted to

:14:52.:14:55.

leave. The reality was that throughout that time there was no

:14:56.:14:58.

activity in Whitehall to really try and prepare for what was bluntly a

:14:59.:15:03.

50-50 chance of the British people voting out. When Theresa May came in

:15:04.:15:07.

as Prime Minister in the summer, there had been very little thinking

:15:08.:15:10.

in Whitehall about Brexit. That is true. He is right. Prime Minister to

:15:11.:15:15.

reason they have spent the summer making sure that Whitehall turned

:15:16.:15:21.

itself around -- Theresa May, and looking at in detail what Brexit

:15:22.:15:25.

means that each new department. She has created three new department

:15:26.:15:29.

ready to go forward as Article 50 is triggered in the next couple of

:15:30.:15:33.

months. Is a Sir Ivan Rogers what he says that the people in government

:15:34.:15:36.

don't like to hear the difficult truths about Brexit? It is not how I

:15:37.:15:44.

would say it. Civil servants have an important play -- part to play to

:15:45.:15:51.

set out their views and experience on how certain policy issues might

:15:52.:15:57.

be driven forward. It is then politicians who need to take that

:15:58.:16:01.

forward. It is what the Prime Minister is doing, she has pulled

:16:02.:16:06.

together some amazing people from externally, the civil service, Sir

:16:07.:16:10.

Ivan had spent time working in a bank so he had external experience.

:16:11.:16:14.

We have people who are going to bring enormous different talents to

:16:15.:16:18.

the table as we move forward into the detailed negotiations after we

:16:19.:16:23.

trigger Article 50. He is a big loss, isn't he? He is an experienced

:16:24.:16:28.

diplomat and knows everybody. He knows the corridors of power. His

:16:29.:16:31.

knowledge and experience will be missed. As with any civil servant

:16:32.:16:36.

who has been working for our great nation for any length of time decide

:16:37.:16:40.

they want to step off the treadmill and take up perhaps private sector

:16:41.:16:46.

or retirement, we don't know but the reality is we have an amazing team.

:16:47.:16:50.

It is world-renowned, our diplomatic corps and those who work within the

:16:51.:16:53.

Treasury and other departments. I have no doubt the Prime Minister has

:16:54.:16:59.

a group of people she can choose from who will be part of the process

:17:00.:17:03.

all the way through the next couple of years as we get to the point of

:17:04.:17:06.

actually reaching Brexit. Thank you for talking to us. It is

:17:07.:17:17.

looking frosty this morning. Especially this coming night, it

:17:18.:17:21.

will be very frosty. Most of us will see a frost away from the coasts.

:17:22.:17:25.

Today it will be signing for most. We have a weather front moving

:17:26.:17:29.

steadily southwards and heading in the direction of the south-west. It

:17:30.:17:34.

is bringing a fair bit of cloud and some patchy rain and drizzle. Behind

:17:35.:17:39.

it, we have colder air feeding in and also quite a strong wind coming

:17:40.:17:45.

from the north. Down the North Sea coastline. Across southern counties

:17:46.:17:52.

this morning, a lot of cloud around. In Dorset, some holes in the cloud.

:17:53.:17:57.

The generally not as cold as it was this time yesterday. You can see the

:17:58.:18:01.

front producing the cloud and odd spot of drizzle. Into northern

:18:02.:18:04.

England and most of Scotland, back under clear skies, it is a cold and

:18:05.:18:09.

frosty start with wintry showers in Shetland and Aberdeenshire. The

:18:10.:18:13.

north-eastern parts of Northern Ireland, some sunshine. But the rest

:18:14.:18:17.

of Northern Ireland heading into Wales and the Midlands, that is

:18:18.:18:21.

where we have the weather front. More cloud and patchy rain or

:18:22.:18:24.

drizzle. South-west England, variable amounts of cloud with

:18:25.:18:30.

brighter skies. As the front pushes towards the south-west, it will

:18:31.:18:34.

brighten behind it and toad caught behind it with patchy rain going

:18:35.:18:41.

without fun. There is a keen wind, so if you're walking along the

:18:42.:18:44.

shore, it will be cold. Some large waves and under the cloud in the

:18:45.:18:50.

south, not as cold. Tonight under clear skies, look at the blue hue in

:18:51.:18:54.

the charts. It will turn cold quickly. There will be a widespread

:18:55.:18:59.

frost. Temperatures in towns and cities offering around freezing or

:19:00.:19:04.

blow away from the coast. In a countryside, much lower, minus six

:19:05.:19:07.

degrees. Locally, minus seven degrees. A widespread frost. There

:19:08.:19:12.

may be isolated pockets of fog, which will be freezing. Tomorrow,

:19:13.:19:18.

not a bad day for most. Breezy Danny North Sea coastline, but nothing

:19:19.:19:23.

like today. A lot of sunshine. Out towards the west, we see the signs

:19:24.:19:27.

of our next weather front coming in and introducing wet and windy

:19:28.:19:31.

weather. That is courtesy of the weather front pushing down towards

:19:32.:19:35.

the south. Before it does, it will be frosty, and we will also see more

:19:36.:19:41.

fog. Here comes the rain. Blustery around it, right behind it, but with

:19:42.:19:47.

a few showers. Unless you are in Norwich, it'll be a mild day, and

:19:48.:19:51.

that will lead us into mild weekend as well. I know you wanted to know

:19:52.:19:57.

about the weekend, and it will be mild. Excellent news. I will remove

:19:58.:20:03.

a layer at the weekend. Before then, the icy blue hue. Thank you.

:20:04.:20:06.

The government has told BBC Breakfast that it's looking

:20:07.:20:09.

at better ways to ensure there are more disabled toilets available.

:20:10.:20:11.

It's after Paralympian Anne Wafula Strike

:20:12.:20:13.

revealed she wet herself in a wheelchair because her train

:20:14.:20:16.

didn't have a working disabled toilet.

:20:17.:20:19.

Later today, campaigners are calling for better changing

:20:20.:20:23.

facililities for the quarter of a million people in the UK

:20:24.:20:26.

Our disability correspondent Nikki Fox has more.

:20:27.:20:28.

Spending a day at the shops is something so many of us do.

:20:29.:20:32.

But for Maria and Ryan, it is not a pleasurable experience.

:20:33.:20:35.

Ryan is autistic, and needs a bathroom with the right amount

:20:36.:20:42.

of space and equipment to allow his mum to change him.

:20:43.:20:45.

Would you be prepared to put your mum or your sister

:20:46.:20:51.

on the floor to change them if they were still wearing nappies?

:20:52.:20:54.

Would you walk into a public toilet in your bare feet?

:20:55.:20:59.

Does that give you some sort of idea of what I have to do?

:21:00.:21:03.

It is this kind of problem that affects at least a quarter

:21:04.:21:07.

This woman can look after her son, Adam, at home, because she has

:21:08.:21:17.

But it is a whole different matter when they leave the house.

:21:18.:21:28.

It is 1.5 hours' round trip to find a suitable public toilet.

:21:29.:21:31.

We can't go out for a full day in Bury.

:21:32.:21:36.

A fully accessible bathroom like this.

:21:37.:21:39.

There are only 900 of these changing places across the UK.

:21:40.:21:44.

It is the creme de la creme of bathrooms.

:21:45.:21:47.

When I came in here with Josh, my son, when he was alive,

:21:48.:21:51.

the first thing would be to bring the ceiling track hoist over.

:21:52.:21:57.

But before it opened, Dawn would have to change Josh

:21:58.:22:00.

You don't change people on the floor.

:22:01.:22:04.

My son obviously had been through chemo.

:22:05.:22:05.

At the end of this life, for the last two years,

:22:06.:22:11.

Shortly before he died, Josh opened this facility.

:22:12.:22:19.

It meant he could rest his spine, which was really important for us,

:22:20.:22:22.

because it meant he could continue to go out and experience life.

:22:23.:22:27.

It has taken four years for Maria to secure the funding for a changing

:22:28.:22:33.

places toilet in her local shopping centre in Crawley.

:22:34.:22:36.

They are not cheap, coming in at around ?18,000.

:22:37.:22:38.

There is currently no legal obligation to provide one.

:22:39.:22:42.

Councils say cuts to funding mean they have had to make tough choices

:22:43.:22:46.

But they are working with local businesses

:22:47.:22:49.

It is not looking much from outside at the moment,

:22:50.:22:58.

but this is where the Crawley changing place will be.

:22:59.:23:01.

They have every right to be able to toilet in the correct way.

:23:02.:23:05.

So to have this facility is giving them their basic human rights

:23:06.:23:08.

of being able to go to the toilet in public, but safely,

:23:09.:23:11.

securely, hygienically, and dignified.

:23:12.:23:18.

There is no easy route to getting a changing places toilet.

:23:19.:23:22.

Towns and cities are beginning to take the changing places on,

:23:23.:23:25.

but there are still a substantial part of the population who can't do

:23:26.:23:29.

the things so many of us take for granted.

:23:30.:23:35.

Joining us now from Glasgow is Dr Lisa Cameron MP,

:23:36.:23:39.

the Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Disability.

:23:40.:23:42.

Thank you for joining us. They recently have been talking about

:23:43.:23:48.

this is because of what happened to this Paralympian, Anne Wafula

:23:49.:23:51.

Strike, who was forced to wet herself in her wheelchair because

:23:52.:23:54.

there was no disabled toilet available. What do you make of what

:23:55.:23:58.

happened to her? Is it acceptable? Of course not. I think it actually

:23:59.:24:03.

shows from her story the real hurdles that face our Paralympian is

:24:04.:24:07.

in people with disabilities right across the United Kingdom every day

:24:08.:24:11.

of the week in accessing public services. It is not acceptable is

:24:12.:24:17.

something we need to herald change for in Parliament and it will form

:24:18.:24:22.

the next focus of our inquiry report in this parliamentary term and the

:24:23.:24:26.

all-party Parliamentary group. We saw the real there from parents

:24:27.:24:31.

having to change their children on the floor in public toilets -- real

:24:32.:24:37.

difficulty. Should that be happening? It should not. It is not

:24:38.:24:41.

hygienic for people. It should be a basic human right to access a

:24:42.:24:47.

toilet. We are marginalising and excluding people with disability

:24:48.:24:51.

from everyday services that other people just expect to be there. That

:24:52.:24:56.

copyright. It can't be right in 2017, and I think we need to ensure

:24:57.:25:02.

this year is the year we deliver it for people with disability -- that

:25:03.:25:06.

can't be right. We heard in that report the real difficulties

:25:07.:25:10.

councils are facing with funding. He should be responsible? Pressure the

:25:11.:25:14.

money come from for the sort of facilities? -- approved. It has to

:25:15.:25:18.

be supported by government. I will be pushing with the UK government in

:25:19.:25:23.

terms of debate in Parliament and also in terms of the independent

:25:24.:25:29.

inquiry report. And the equalities act, it is incumbent upon companies

:25:30.:25:33.

who provide services to make sure they make reasonable adjustments,

:25:34.:25:36.

and do we think it is reasonable for people with disability to be able to

:25:37.:25:40.

access it is reasonable for people with disability to be able to access

:25:41.:25:44.

a taller in 2017? I think it is. We need to work together and make sure

:25:45.:25:48.

across business and the public sector and government that we are

:25:49.:25:51.

singing the same tune and are actually delivering for people with

:25:52.:25:54.

disability. You say companies that provide services. What you mean and

:25:55.:25:59.

how would you enforce that? What we have to do, companies including

:26:00.:26:02.

public transport companies, including companies who employ

:26:03.:26:06.

people with disability. This is another issue that it feeds in as a

:26:07.:26:13.

vicious cycle because people with disability can't access public

:26:14.:26:16.

transport, they can't access buildings where they can go to work,

:26:17.:26:20.

then we are excluding an marginalising them. It does not make

:26:21.:26:24.

economic sense because public transport companies are actually

:26:25.:26:30.

excluding a huge part of the population that could contribute to

:26:31.:26:33.

the economic development of society and of their company. Similarly, we

:26:34.:26:38.

need to have the disability employment gap, which is huge across

:26:39.:26:43.

this country. In terms of the work we are doing, it links together. We

:26:44.:26:48.

can't exclude people with disability. We need to herald change

:26:49.:26:52.

right across the United Kingdom and make sure it is not a postcode

:26:53.:26:55.

lottery. Make sure we support changing places, which is doing

:26:56.:27:00.

fantastic work in ensuring people can have access to basic facilities

:27:01.:27:05.

such as toilets. But we need to be doing much more. Lisa, thank you for

:27:06.:27:08.

your time on BBC Breakfast this morning. Thank you.

:27:09.:27:10.

It has wowed vistors in London for more than a 100 years,

:27:11.:27:16.

but Dippy the dinosaur is set to roam again.

:27:17.:27:20.

Breakfast's Tim Muffett is at the Natural History Museum.

:27:21.:27:25.

It is always such a site when you see it as well. Good morning. Good

:27:26.:27:34.

morning. Dippy has been here since 1905, since 1979 the dinosaur has

:27:35.:27:38.

been in the main entrance hall. But it is about to be dismantled today

:27:39.:27:45.

before a UK tour gets under way. 292 pieces. It is a cast replica of an

:27:46.:27:51.

actual dinosaur skeleton. These are not fossilised bones, however it is

:27:52.:27:55.

probably one of the most famous exhibits in any museum in the UK if

:27:56.:27:59.

not the world. It is featured in films and millions of people, some

:28:00.:28:04.

90 million visitors, it is thought, have stood here and look dead Dippy

:28:05.:28:09.

over the last 100 or so years. Anyway, how do dismantle an object

:28:10.:28:14.

of this size safely -- looked at. We will be finding out later. First,

:28:15.:28:16.

the news, travel and weather way Hello, this is Breakfast,

:28:17.:31:42.

with Louise Minchin and Dan Walker. Britain's outgoing ambassador

:31:43.:31:47.

to the EU, Sir Ivan Rogers, has strongly criticised

:31:48.:31:49.

the government's preparations In his resignation letter,

:31:50.:31:51.

he urged his colleagues to continue to challenge what he called muddled

:31:52.:31:56.

thinking and ill-founded arguments. except to say that "Sir Ivan is free

:31:57.:31:58.

to express his own opinions." Earlier we spoke to Shadow Secretary

:31:59.:32:03.

of State for International Trade - What we now need is to ensure that

:32:04.:32:21.

whoever it is that replaces Sir Ivan is someone with an equally

:32:22.:32:24.

distinguished record of public service. I hate seeing the civil

:32:25.:32:31.

service either politicised or turned into" yes" people. I think we need

:32:32.:32:39.

someone with a stiff the -- distinguish record as Sir Ivan did

:32:40.:32:48.

and has a fundamental grasp of how our partners in Europe will be

:32:49.:32:52.

thinking. We need the best deal for the UK.

:32:53.:32:53.

Meanwhile, the UK's countryside and wildlife could suffer post

:32:54.:32:55.

Brexit, according to a cross party committee of MPs.

:32:56.:32:58.

Farmers could also face a loss of subsidies according

:32:59.:33:00.

to the report by the Environmental Audit Committee.

:33:01.:33:03.

It calls for new laws to ensure existing protections for farming

:33:04.:33:05.

are not weakened once Britain leaves the EU.

:33:06.:33:08.

The government says it is committed to safeguarding and improving them.

:33:09.:33:15.

Former drivers for a private ambulance firm that provides

:33:16.:33:17.

emergency cover for the NHS, say they were given just an hour's

How many times have you heard your other half say,

When many of us have resolved to have a dry

Especially for women with research suggesting men are the instigators.

:39:53.:39:55.

The campaign group Drinkaware say couples are key to supporting each

:39:56.:39:59.

other if one of them wants to cut down on the booze.

:40:00.:40:02.

I think if your wife stops drinking, you have to do the right thing,

:40:03.:40:23.

haven't you? Having to challenge myself rather than, you know, get

:40:24.:40:28.

the other person to manage their own drinking habits.

:40:29.:40:34.

I just usually do it for my own well-being and all the rest of it,

:40:35.:40:43.

just did lose a bit of weight and get healthy. I do try and help you

:40:44.:40:51.

but I do put down as well. 100%, you would completely support me.

:40:52.:40:54.

Definitely cost of a going to tell me to do it? I gave up for seven

:40:55.:40:57.

years and you still drink. I think if one of us was going to do

:40:58.:41:10.

it, we were both have to do it so we were both as in it as each other. In

:41:11.:41:15.

the past, it has helped us a lot doing things together. I would

:41:16.:41:17.

advise anyone else, definitely, do it as a couple. You have got each

:41:18.:41:28.

other's back. It helps. Some tricky conversations. Let's find out if

:41:29.:41:29.

this couple agree. Reverand Kate Bottley

manager of the charity Drinkaware, You might have seen on a certain TV

:41:34.:41:43.

programme. I've never seen before! What was found in this report is

:41:44.:41:48.

that women are pressurised sometimes by their partners, perhaps men, into

:41:49.:41:53.

having another drink. Is that what happens? Look at his face! It's not

:41:54.:42:03.

always tea. What we find in our marriage is it seems to go as a

:42:04.:42:08.

pair. If one of us is having a glass of wine, the other one would have a

:42:09.:42:13.

glass of wine as well. You sort of encouragement it will. You agree?

:42:14.:42:19.

Yes. You started to measure out your drinks in the little thing you

:42:20.:42:22.

bought, just to make sure you're not just a slugging it all in at once.

:42:23.:42:28.

Is that a practical response? This is clearly an issue. It makes us

:42:29.:42:33.

sound like massive drinkers. We are not. Like most people, a lot of us

:42:34.:42:40.

do stressful jobs and a glass of wine is normal. You reach for the

:42:41.:42:45.

wine. What we have in our house is a measure. Instead of just pouring it

:42:46.:42:51.

in and pouring the next one, you can measure it so you can be more aware.

:42:52.:42:59.

What is the research telling us? We did a big survey of people in

:43:00.:43:04.

couples were at least one person was drinking over the guideline. About

:43:05.:43:10.

60%, both people are drinking over and the egg each other on but there

:43:11.:43:15.

it is a big chunk of men who say actually, I am the guy who is

:43:16.:43:19.

saying, do you want another glass? They are the ones pushing the extra

:43:20.:43:22.

drink. There are 30% of women who say that they would drink less if it

:43:23.:43:29.

weren't for their partners. If you, for example, and I imagine lots of

:43:30.:43:33.

us would be attempting a dry January, how helpful is that if you

:43:34.:43:36.

are both dry question mark it helps if you have the mutual support. --

:43:37.:43:45.

if you are both dry? We have an app so you can track how much you are

:43:46.:43:50.

drinking so you can see those days where you lose willpower and that's

:43:51.:43:54.

when you want your partner to step in and say, yes, gifted that you

:43:55.:43:57.

weren't going to be drinking will stop just be that little voice of

:43:58.:44:01.

conscience to keep you on the straight and narrow. -- yes, you did

:44:02.:44:11.

say. We have to support one another because we are as bad as it is each

:44:12.:44:16.

other, you said Simon. Isabel says, if we tell people we don't eat meat

:44:17.:44:20.

there is no issue that if you don't want to drink alcohol people become

:44:21.:44:23.

self entitled bullies and try to shove drinking culture down your

:44:24.:44:26.

throat. What comes from those couples is when -- comments is when

:44:27.:44:31.

couples help each other out, it helps. In any marriage, you should

:44:32.:44:34.

be each other's' biggest encourage a.

:44:35.:44:39.

-- encouragement. When you make the vows, you promise to support each

:44:40.:44:46.

other as much as you can and I would say you are probably my greatest

:44:47.:44:49.

encouragement and also my harshest critic. It is important that you

:44:50.:44:55.

have a drink when you are the one who is there, no secret tipples. It

:44:56.:45:01.

is our kids that are our worst critics sometimes. It can be the

:45:02.:45:06.

whole family that help each other as long as you are open about what you

:45:07.:45:10.

are drinking. That will help you manage it. You make a good point. I

:45:11.:45:16.

suppose everybody can be involved in the described -- discussion. It was

:45:17.:45:23.

definitely a family thing, come on, dad. We had a guy put Sellotape over

:45:24.:45:31.

the lead of the ring pull so every time you went, home, beer, fridge,

:45:32.:45:38.

drink. It was, hang on. They need to think about it and then it stopped.

:45:39.:45:47.

Is there a sticker on your biscuit tin? I'm asking for a friend. Thank

:45:48.:45:53.

you very much. Are you going to try and do dry July? I think total

:45:54.:46:00.

abstinence won't work but we are doing less. Shirt of the year so

:46:01.:46:07.

far, man. Was that a Christmas present? Yes.

:46:08.:46:13.

Let's catch up with the weather. Some icy blue hues, Carol is talking

:46:14.:46:23.

about. For the next 24 hours, some sunshine, but tonight in particular,

:46:24.:46:27.

a widespread frost away from the coast. Today we have a weather front

:46:28.:46:32.

sinking southwards taking a band of cloud with and patchy rain and

:46:33.:46:37.

drizzle. In that northerly flow behind it, it will turn colder. As

:46:38.:46:41.

the front continues to drift towards the south-west, the court Ed Dickson

:46:42.:46:45.

behind it at the skies were clear. The other thing we have behind it is

:46:46.:46:49.

a keen northerly wind coming down the North Sea coastline -- the cold

:46:50.:46:56.

air. We could see some rain showers getting in across Norfolk.

:46:57.:46:59.

Brightening through the course of the day with some sunshine except

:47:00.:47:02.

for where the weather front is in the south-west. The Vodafone will be

:47:03.:47:06.

thick enough to produce the odd spot of light rain or drizzle -- weather

:47:07.:47:12.

front. Some of us will see sunshine when it breaks up. Into East Anglia

:47:13.:47:16.

through London up towards the Midlands, again, some sunshine. It

:47:17.:47:21.

will feel cold and you will need to wrap up warm, especially if you are

:47:22.:47:24.

travelling or walking on the shoreline down the North Sea

:47:25.:47:28.

coastline. Sunshine prevails across much of Scotland apart from Shetland

:47:29.:47:32.

and Aberdeenshire, where we could see wintry showers. Brightening

:47:33.:47:36.

across much of Northern Ireland, albeit the south will be the last to

:47:37.:47:40.

Brighton. As the front continues to drift towards the south-west, it

:47:41.:47:43.

will brighten from north Wales, and he is the weather front producing

:47:44.:47:48.

the cloud and patchy rain across the south-west. As we head into the

:47:49.:47:51.

evening and overnight, the temperature will drop rapidly. There

:47:52.:48:05.

will be a widespread frost. In towns and cities, the temperatures will be

:48:06.:48:09.

pretty low. -2 minus three. Where we have the figure cloud, temperatures

:48:10.:48:12.

holding up a little more. In rural areas, it will feel better.

:48:13.:48:15.

Widespread frost. Maybe a little too much dry air for ice in the morning,

:48:16.:48:19.

but there could be freezing fog patches. We do not expect that to be

:48:20.:48:22.

too problematic either. Tomorrow, a fine day with their sunshine around.

:48:23.:48:26.

Feeling cold with the wind got a strong and is. Late in the day, a

:48:27.:48:29.

weather front from the west accompanied by some rain and also

:48:30.:48:33.

windy conditions. One thing you will notice is as it heads further south

:48:34.:48:36.

on Friday, the weather will turn that bit milder. Thank you very

:48:37.:48:41.

much. See you later. Cold one the way. You like a bit of cold, do you?

:48:42.:48:46.

High street retailer Next says its Christmas wasn't so festive

:48:47.:48:48.

Santa didn't deliver a sales boost for Next.

:48:49.:49:00.

And we watch Next closely because it's seen as an indicator

:49:01.:49:03.

of how well the high street is doing.

:49:04.:49:06.

Figures just out show that sales in the run up to Christmas fell 0.4%

:49:07.:49:09.

It was shop sales that fell the most, but they were propped up

:49:10.:49:15.

Christmas, the firm has warned that inflation could squeeze our income

:49:16.:49:22.

next year, and we'll have less money in our pockets.

:49:23.:49:28.

They've also said they might have to raise prices in stores by up

:49:29.:49:31.

Kirsty McGregor is from Drapers Magazine.

:49:32.:49:42.

Those are the figures from Next, the first one to tell us how they fared

:49:43.:49:51.

over Christmas. What does it tell us about the state of the high street

:49:52.:49:54.

this Christmas? It is a worrying sign from Next this morning. They

:49:55.:49:58.

tend to be a bit of a bellwether for the high street. I think we will see

:49:59.:50:02.

a few more trading statements like this same Christmas was

:50:03.:50:05.

disappointing, and it is not good news. Christmas is the key period

:50:06.:50:09.

for all retailers when they expect to see a boost in sales. What are

:50:10.:50:14.

the interesting things if you delve into their statement? Even be after

:50:15.:50:17.

Christmas sales, normally they would expect to flog things more cheaply

:50:18.:50:23.

and people will buy it. Those sales fell significantly, down by 7%. Does

:50:24.:50:27.

it suggest people bought before Christmas and said, OK, I am not

:50:28.:50:32.

buying any more, and in the New Year it will be tough? Next took a gamble

:50:33.:50:37.

keeping things full price in the run-up to Christmas. That is what

:50:38.:50:40.

they usually do. They usually use the cells to try to get people into

:50:41.:50:44.

the shops afterwards. It does not seem to have paid off that strategy

:50:45.:50:48.

this year. We are seeing an underlying move away from spending

:50:49.:50:51.

so much muggy on clothing and footwear. People seem to be spending

:50:52.:50:56.

more on going out and technology and things like that -- money. They have

:50:57.:51:01.

also one of price rises next year. A lot of firms have said prices could

:51:02.:51:04.

start rising next year as well. There is this double whammy. They

:51:05.:51:08.

touched on inflation. Things are coming through means we have less

:51:09.:51:13.

money in our pockets and wage growth is not keeping up. At the same time

:51:14.:51:17.

prices are rising. We all feel the squeeze in the New Year? I think we

:51:18.:51:21.

will. They initially said 5% price rise would be the worst case

:51:22.:51:25.

scenario this year, but I think it is looking likely now. I suspect we

:51:26.:51:30.

will see with people like Next, who play in the value space, they will

:51:31.:51:35.

try to keep the low end prices down and perhaps just raise prices

:51:36.:51:39.

towards the end of the bracket, the upper end. But it will be a tough

:51:40.:51:43.

year, and I think people will be spending less on clothing. With that

:51:44.:51:47.

in mind, what can retailers do to persuade us to get through the

:51:48.:51:51.

doors? As you said, maybe we are spending less on clothing and maybe

:51:52.:51:55.

more on going out, but even then, if we have less money in our pockets,

:51:56.:51:59.

had do they persuade us to part with that money? It is having a strong

:52:00.:52:03.

multichannel strategy, making sure your website is top notch. We will

:52:04.:52:08.

see with a lot of retailers, if you have a good website, online sales

:52:09.:52:12.

will probably prop things up. A great website and making sure you

:52:13.:52:15.

have the right stories in the right locations. And try to do something a

:52:16.:52:19.

little bit exciting that makes people want to come into the shops

:52:20.:52:23.

rather than to shop online. Yes, a familiar tale. Thank you so much.

:52:24.:52:29.

Remember, next week, another busy week as far as retail figures are

:52:30.:52:31.

concerned. Morrisons, John Lewis,

:52:32.:52:33.

Sainsbury's, M, Tesco, That'll keep me busy next week. All

:52:34.:52:34.

to look forward to. Dinosaurs haven't roamed the earth

:52:35.:52:42.

for quite some time, but one by the name of Dippy

:52:43.:52:45.

is about to embark on something It will travel around

:52:46.:52:48.

museums across the country, but first, there's the small

:52:49.:52:52.

matter of dismantling it. Breakfast's Tim Muffett

:52:53.:52:55.

is with Dippy now. Lots of you will be familiar with

:52:56.:53:06.

this site. Such a stunning entrance to the Natural History Museum. Good

:53:07.:53:08.

morning. A lot of people have been in touch

:53:09.:53:15.

this morning saying see in Dippy has been one of the oldest memories and

:53:16.:53:20.

making them interested in science. They make 's been here since 1905,

:53:21.:53:26.

and in entrance all since 1979. But the dismantling process is about to

:53:27.:53:30.

get under way. Dippy is living here and is going to be going on a UK

:53:31.:53:35.

tour of eight destinations, which will take just over two years. How

:53:36.:53:41.

on earth did you go about dismantling an object is famous, as

:53:42.:53:45.

precious as this? You will find out shortly. Firstly, here are some

:53:46.:53:49.

facts and figures about Dippy delivered by visitors to the museum.

:53:50.:53:51.

Dippy is 21 metres long and made up of 292 bones.

:53:52.:54:06.

Dippy is a plaster cast replica of a skeleton found in Wyoming

:54:07.:54:10.

Dippy has been viewed by more than 90 million visitors.

:54:11.:54:27.

Dippy will be going on a two-year tour around the UK and will be

:54:28.:54:31.

replaced here by the skeleton of a blue whale.

:54:32.:54:33.

We are a little sad because Dippy sort of feels like an old friend,

:54:34.:54:37.

It gives people an opportunity to see an amazing dinosaur that

:54:38.:54:43.

perhaps they would not be able to see at all.

:54:44.:54:46.

Lorraine, you have the somewhat vast task of dismantling Dippy and taking

:54:47.:55:10.

Dippy on a tour. Where'd you begin? I know tomorrow morning, we start by

:55:16.:55:20.

take the title. It is bit like I'm dreading a string of pearls. Each

:55:39.:55:42.

see where the bolts unscripted we are going to very carefully take it

:55:43.:55:47.

apart. We have some pictures, so we think we know what we are doing. But

:55:48.:55:51.

you can never tell. We have 3.5 weeks to take Dippy down. If you

:55:52.:55:55.

look at the neck end, they are cables hanging from the ceiling. We

:55:56.:55:59.

have to disconnect that. There is a lot of big about. Dippy is about to

:56:00.:56:04.

go on a UK tour of eight destinations. They should be coming

:56:05.:56:08.

up on the screen now. How did you choose where Dippy would go on show?

:56:09.:56:12.

A lot of people applied and we looked carefully. The eight venues

:56:13.:56:17.

spread around the UK represent a really good place for them to go.

:56:18.:56:22.

They are going to meet up with local museums and schools, and they will

:56:23.:56:26.

do fantastic events. We will reach millions more people, people who do

:56:27.:56:30.

not necessarily get down to London. And they will explore nature in

:56:31.:56:34.

their own region. The UK has an amazing diversity of natural and we

:56:35.:56:38.

want people to engage with their own region. Dippy is our ambassador for

:56:39.:56:44.

that. Lorraine, from everybody on our team, good at. It is quite a

:56:45.:56:48.

process. It will take several weeks. -- good luck. Then Dippy will say

:56:49.:56:53.

goodbye to the Natural History Museum after 100 years, but a blue

whale will replace them act in this space. It is fantastic. Just like

Hello this is Breakfast, with Louise Minchin and Dan Walker.

:00:57.:00:59.

The British ambassador to the EU tells his staff to challenge

:01:00.:01:02.

"muddled thinking" about Brexit, a day after he quit his job early.

:01:03.:01:06.

Sir Ivan Rogers strongly criticised the government's preparations

:01:07.:01:09.

for leaving the EU saying senior ministers needed to hear what he

:01:10.:01:12.

After a Paralympian wet herself on a train because the disabled

toilet was out of action, the government tells Breakfast it

:01:39.:01:42.

will tighten up the rules around facilities for disabled people.

About to go on a UK tour. How do you take apart a 292 boned skeletons

:02:41.:02:49.

Here is Carol with the weather. For England and Wales it is cloudy start

:02:50.:02:55.

with patchy light rain, except in the north where we have clear skies.

:02:56.:03:00.

Frosty with some sunshine and in Northern Ireland, you have a bit of

:03:01.:03:04.

both, some bright spells and sunshine, but there is a keen wind

:03:05.:03:09.

down the North Sea coastline. I will put all of that together 15 minutes.

:03:10.:03:15.

Britain's outgoing ambassador to the European Union,

:03:16.:03:18.

Sir Ivan Rogers, has strongly criticised the government's

:03:19.:03:20.

In his resignation letter he said he didn't know what ministers'

:03:21.:03:24.

negotiating objectives were and called on his

:03:25.:03:25.

colleagues to challenge what he called muddled thinking.

:03:26.:03:28.

Our Diplomatic Correspondent, James Landale, reports.

:03:29.:03:31.

Sir Ivan Rogers has been Britain's ambassador

:03:32.:03:34.

to the EU for three years, and his criticisms about

:03:35.:03:37.

the Government's preparations for Brexit will be hard to ignore.

:03:38.:03:41.

In his resignation e-mail, he says there is a short supply of...

:03:42.:03:48.

He reveals that even he does not know what the Government's

:03:49.:03:57.

negotiating objectives for Brexit will be.

:03:58.:03:59.

But it is Sir Ivan's implicit and thinly veiled criticism

:04:00.:04:02.

He urges fellow officials never to be afraid to speak truth

:04:03.:04:09.

to power, and to challenge what he calls muddled thinking

:04:10.:04:12.

He says they should support each other in difficult moments

:04:13.:04:18.

when they have to deliver messages that are disagreeable to those

:04:19.:04:22.

So, Sir Ivan's charge is a serious one -

:04:23.:04:27.

that the Government isn't ready for Brexit and it is ignoring

:04:28.:04:30.

Our Political Correspondent Iain Watson joins us from Westminster.

:04:31.:04:44.

How significant and potentially damaging might this be? Very

:04:45.:04:51.

significant for the following reasons. Certainly, you would expect

:04:52.:04:57.

the EU ambassador should be fundamentally diplomatic in his

:04:58.:05:02.

approach. But the resignation letter from Sir Ivan Rodgers was far from

:05:03.:05:05.

diplomatic. He simply could have said I am standing aside and get

:05:06.:05:10.

someone else in place before negotiations begin in earnest. He

:05:11.:05:15.

went, he went much further than that. So far this is serious,

:05:16.:05:19.

because not only is he criticising the government's approach, there is

:05:20.:05:26.

no timetable or process in place to choose his successor, just months

:05:27.:05:28.

before these crucial negotiations begin. What should have been a

:05:29.:05:34.

diplomatic job, a civil service job has now become highly political. We

:05:35.:05:37.

believe campaigners arguing they want someone who believes in Brexit

:05:38.:05:42.

to be in that position. That puts pressure on Theresa May over who

:05:43.:05:48.

that should be. Whoever takes that job will be under scrutiny as well.

:05:49.:05:52.

We have heard what Sir Ivan Rodgers thinks of a lack of experience in

:05:53.:05:58.

negotiating and we might be outmanoeuvred by the European

:05:59.:06:04.

committee. It will be serious if Theresa May cannot get the right

:06:05.:06:08.

candidate for the job. But the most serious thing in that letter is

:06:09.:06:12.

this, after seven months, the person who should be in the know, the

:06:13.:06:16.

ambassador to the EU still isn't clear what the negotiating

:06:17.:06:20.

objectives are for leaving the European Union. Though Theresa May

:06:21.:06:27.

says Brexit means Brexit, the most senior man in Brussels until

:06:28.:06:29.

yesterday, doesn't know what Brexit means. Thank you.

:06:30.:06:35.

Meanwhile, the UK's countryside and wildlife could suffer post

:06:36.:06:37.

Brexit, according to a cross party committee of MPs.

:06:38.:06:39.

Farmers could also face a loss of subsidies according to the report

:06:40.:06:42.

by the Environmental Audit Committee.

:06:43.:06:43.

It calls for new laws to ensure existing protections for farming

:06:44.:06:46.

are not weakened once Britain leaves the EU.

:06:47.:06:48.

The government says it is committed to safeguarding and improving them.

:06:49.:06:52.

Former drivers for a private ambulance firm that provides

:06:53.:06:54.

emergency cover for the NHS, say they were given just an hour's

:06:55.:06:58.

A company based in Essex called the 'Private Ambulance Service'

:06:59.:07:04.

is contracted to respond to emergencies during busy times.

:07:05.:07:06.

The company says the level of training of its staff exceeds

:07:07.:07:09.

There's more on this on the Victoria Derbyshire

:07:10.:07:17.

Two thirds of asthma patients in the UK aren't receiving

:07:18.:07:24.

the basic care needed to manage their condition according

:07:25.:07:26.

to research by charity Asthma UK, They say that although the figures

:07:27.:07:29.

are slightly better than a year ago, almost 3.5 million

:07:30.:07:32.

The charity has warned that this failing could "cost lives"

:07:33.:07:35.

Being on the right medication and knowing how to use

:07:36.:07:40.

So too is having regular check-ups and getting tailored advice on how

:07:41.:07:47.

This year's annual asthma care survey shows most people with asthma

:07:48.:07:53.

aren't receiving this basic care, that's around 3.6 million

:07:54.:07:58.

In 2015 in the UK, nearly 1,500 people died from asthma attacks,

:07:59.:08:07.

According to Asthma UK, two in every three asthma deaths

:08:08.:08:14.

Most patients think the care they receive is satisfactory

:08:15.:08:22.

or excellent, but few get the full package of basic care.

:08:23.:08:27.

NHS England says every asthma patient should be supported

:08:28.:08:31.

to manage their condition and offered regular reviews.

:08:32.:08:35.

And it's not just medical staff who need to do more,

:08:36.:08:39.

according to Asthma UK, who say people with asthma

:08:40.:08:42.

must take responsibility for their own care too.

:08:43.:08:51.

West Yorkshire Police have carried out further searches overnight

:08:52.:08:53.

after a man was shot and killed by officers

:08:54.:08:55.

Yassar Yaqub, died on Monday evening, after police in unmarked

:08:56.:09:00.

vehicles stopped a car just off the M62 in Huddersfield.

:09:01.:09:04.

Phil Bodmer is close to where the shooting happened.

:09:05.:09:10.

Phil what is the latest in this investigation?

:09:11.:09:19.

The M62 Junction 24 westbound finally reopened last night. Just

:09:20.:09:26.

over 24 hours after it was closed following the fatal shooting of

:09:27.:09:33.

28-year-old Yassar Yaqub, a father of two from Huddersfield. The

:09:34.:09:40.

investigation is being handled by the Independent police complaints

:09:41.:09:46.

in. They say they are making good progress but it is a complex

:09:47.:09:49.

investigation and it might take some time. They are appealing for people

:09:50.:09:54.

to be patient. Police officers stopped a number cars on Sunday

:09:55.:10:01.

night, including a white Audi. The investigation is focusing on that

:10:02.:10:04.

and also the shooting of Yassar Yaqub is very much part of that

:10:05.:10:08.

investigation, trying to find out the circumstances leading up to

:10:09.:10:12.

that. What we know is police undertook a number of searches in

:10:13.:10:15.

the Huddersfield area last might. Officers are not being specific

:10:16.:10:25.

about the precise locations. Also, a spontaneous process, one in Leeds

:10:26.:10:31.

last night. Some of them were peaceful protest. Officers were

:10:32.:10:35.

deployed to make sure those protests remained peaceful. We have heard one

:10:36.:10:40.

police van was attacked with stones and some officers were attacked.

:10:41.:10:44.

Although we have to get that officially confirmed. There is a

:10:45.:10:48.

postmortem being carried out today on the victim. We should find out

:10:49.:10:52.

more about that later. Meanwhile, five people remain in custody, being

:10:53.:10:57.

questioned about this incident. Thank you very much.

:10:58.:11:01.

It's being reported that the convicted mass murderer,

:11:02.:11:02.

Charles Manson, has been taken to hospital.

:11:03.:11:05.

Media reports say that Manson, who is in his 80s,

:11:06.:11:07.

has been moved to a hospital about an hour away from the state

:11:08.:11:11.

Manson, who was sentenced to life in prison, directed his followers

:11:12.:11:15.

to murder seven people in August 1969.

:11:16.:11:19.

An earthquake was detected 100 miles from Scarborough last night.

:11:20.:11:21.

The British Geological Survey says the tremor,

:11:22.:11:23.

which was in the North Sea, happened just before

:11:24.:11:27.

7:00pm yesterday evening and had a magnitude of 3.8.

:11:28.:11:40.

Somewhere near there. I need one of those pointers.

:11:41.:11:45.

A couple who were forced to spend the night in the Scottish Cairngorms

:11:46.:11:48.

have spoken of their relief at being rescued.

:11:49.:11:50.

Robert and Cathy Elmer were reported missing on Sunday night

:11:51.:11:52.

and sheltered in a bivvy bag before rescuers reached

:11:53.:11:54.

Yesterday, another man was saved from the mountain range,

:11:55.:11:58.

Janet Jackson's given birth to her first child.

:11:59.:12:03.

The younger sister of Michael Jackson, who is 50,

:12:04.:12:07.

She is said to have had a stress-free delivery.

:12:08.:12:12.

The singer stopped a world tour last April, telling her fans

:12:13.:12:15.

she was planning a family with her husband.

:12:16.:12:21.

2017 should be the year of change for people with disabilities. Rules

:12:22.:12:39.

are looking to be tightened for access. All this is revealed after a

:12:40.:12:45.

Paralympian wet herself in a wheelchair because her train didn't

:12:46.:12:48.

have a working disabled toilet. But Lisa Cameron told us it was

:12:49.:12:54.

unacceptable. It should be a basic human right to be able to access a

:12:55.:12:59.

toilet. We are marginalising and excluding people with disability

:13:00.:13:03.

from everyday services that other people just expect to be there. That

:13:04.:13:08.

cannot be right, it cannot be right in 2017 and I think we need to make

:13:09.:13:13.

sure this year is the year we deliver for people with disability.

:13:14.:13:18.

The government has told as it is looking at better ways to ensure

:13:19.:13:22.

there are more disabled toilets available. Later today, campaigners

:13:23.:13:27.

are talking about having better changing facilities for quarter of a

:13:28.:13:31.

million people in the UK who needs them. Nicky Fox has more on this.

:13:32.:13:36.

Spending a day at the shops is something so many of us do. But for

:13:37.:13:41.

Maria and Ryan, it is not a pleasurable experience. Ryan is

:13:42.:13:46.

autistic and needs a bathroom that has the right amount of space and

:13:47.:13:50.

equipment to allow his mum to change him. But there aren't that many

:13:51.:13:54.

around. Would you be prepared to put your child, your mum or your sister

:13:55.:13:58.

on the floor to change them if they were still wearing nappies?

:13:59.:14:09.

It is this kind of problem that affects at least a quarter

:14:10.:14:12.

This woman can look after her son Adam at home because she has

:14:13.:14:17.

But it is a whole different matter when they leave the house.

:14:18.:14:24.

It is 1.5 hours' round trip to find a suitable public toilet.

:14:25.:14:27.

We can't go out for a full day in Bury.

:14:28.:14:34.

A fully-accessible bathroom like this.

:14:35.:14:41.

There are only 900 of these Changing Places across the UK.

:14:42.:14:47.

It is the creme de la creme of bathrooms.

:14:48.:14:51.

When I came in here with Josh, my son, when he was alive,

:14:52.:14:54.

the first thing would be to bring the ceiling track hoist over.

:14:55.:14:58.

But before it opened, Dawn would have to change

:14:59.:15:02.

You don't change people on the floor.

:15:03.:15:07.

My son obviously had been through chemo.

:15:08.:15:09.

At the end of this life, for the last two years,

:15:10.:15:16.

Shortly before he died, Josh opened this facility.

:15:17.:15:19.

It meant he could rest his spine, which was really important for us,

:15:20.:15:22.

because it meant he could continue to go out and experience life.

:15:23.:15:32.

It has taken four years for Maria to secure the funding

:15:33.:15:34.

for a Changing Places toilet in her local shopping

:15:35.:15:37.

They are not cheap, coming in at around ?18,000.

:15:38.:15:44.

There is currently no legal obligation to provide one.

:15:45.:15:46.

Councils say cuts to funding mean they have had to make tough choices

:15:47.:15:50.

But they are working with local businesses

:15:51.:15:54.

It is not looking much from outside at the moment, but this is where

:15:55.:16:02.

They have every right to be able to toilet in the correct way.

:16:03.:16:08.

So to have this facility is giving them their basic human rights

:16:09.:16:11.

of being able to go to the toilet in public, but safely, securely,

:16:12.:16:14.

There is no easy route to getting a Changing Places toilet.

:16:15.:16:22.

Towns and cities are beginning to take the Changing Places on,

:16:23.:16:24.

but there are still a substantial part of the population

:16:25.:16:27.

who can't do the things so many of us take for granted.

:16:28.:16:35.

Lots of you have been getting in contact with us about this.

:16:36.:16:51.

Donna says, everybody is one step away from being the person who needs

:16:52.:16:56.

to use these toilets, or they may be isolated at home.

:16:57.:16:58.

Neil says, I have complete sympathy, but at a cost of ?18,000, can we

:16:59.:17:03.

expect local authorities or private businesses to supply them, however

:17:04.:17:08.

much we wish for them? Somebody else says, what about a corporate social

:17:09.:17:13.

responsibility? Joanne says, our shopping centre has

:17:14.:17:18.

won awards, the disabled toilet is massive with Wales and a large

:17:19.:17:23.

changing table. Howerd says, he transported two disabled family

:17:24.:17:28.

members around 1200 miles, he says everywhere they went the disabled

:17:29.:17:34.

toilets doubled as a baby changing room, and families used them, a lack

:17:35.:17:43.

of paper, generally pretty grim. As for hoists and adult sized changing

:17:44.:17:46.

tables, they did not seek them at all. He said we live in the Stone

we have cold weather to get through first. It is a cold start today, but

:18:14.:18:19.

this cold night will be even colder, with a widespread frost. The weather

:18:44.:18:48.

coming inland of the North Sea, if you of them in Shetland and

:18:49.:18:53.

Aberdeenshire will be wintry, but they will be rain showers as they

:18:54.:18:56.

push into Norfolk. It brightens up this afternoon. The weather front

:18:57.:19:02.

moves towards the south-west. There will be some holes in the cloud,

some sunshine coming through and patchy rain. The rain is fairly hit

England, blue skies. More cloud towards the coast. Fairly windy. As

:19:17.:19:22.

we move across Scotland and into Northern Ireland, a fair bit of

:19:23.:19:28.

cloud. The cloud will clear the south of Northern Ireland last. And

:19:29.:19:35.

the south of Wales. Into the south-west, we also have the cloud

and patchy light rain and drizzle. As we head through Wednesday evening

countryside, Peter Bridges will be a lot lower than that. There might be

:19:58.:20:06.

some patchy fog forming. If that happens, it will be freezing fog.

:20:07.:20:11.

After the cold start, we are looking at a lot of sunshine and dry

next system is waiting in the wings. Through Thursday into Friday, that

:20:27.:20:29.

will be slowly slipping south. It will be windy around it as well.

:20:30.:20:34.

Before it arrives, we will look at frost, possibly the risk of ice as

:20:35.:20:41.

well, and also fog. The fog forming more readily as we move into Friday.

:20:42.:20:48.

Behind the rain, brighter sky and a cue showers, leading us into a

:20:49.:20:53.

milder weekend. Fairly settled, cloudy, a bit of rain at times, but

:20:54.:20:57.

we will see more coming into the Northwest on Sunday.

A British-Iranian woman who has been in solitary confinement since last

:23:02.:23:03.

March will have her appeal heard later today.

:23:04.:23:05.

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, is accused of plotting to topple

:23:06.:23:07.

Nazinin's husband Richard Ratcliffe joins us now from their

:23:08.:23:14.

We have talked to you before. For people who don't know much about her

:23:15.:23:25.

story, how did she end up being detained? Nazanin went on holiday

:23:26.:23:33.

with our daughter at Easter, and was picked up at the airport on the way

:23:34.:23:38.

back home and was whisked off down south and kept in solitary

:23:39.:23:41.

confinement and later charged with national security related issues and

:23:42.:23:45.

sentenced to five years in September. As we speak the appeal is

:23:46.:23:50.

happening, so hopefully that may be overturned. How optimistic are you

:23:51.:23:58.

that things might change? I am terrified. It is unpredictable, what

:23:59.:24:05.

will happen. It has been fairly arbitrary all the way through. We

:24:06.:24:11.

have to wait until it has happened and the lawyer tells us, we have had

:24:12.:24:18.

limited access to Nazanin at this point. It has been political all the

:24:19.:24:23.

way through. When she was taken, messages say that she will not be

:24:24.:24:26.

released if the British don't negotiate, soap anything could

:24:27.:24:32.

happen, it could be the sentence is reduced or quashed, it could be that

:24:33.:24:36.

it is increased, it could be that we don't know for a few weeks. I am

:24:37.:24:44.

trying to keep calm. Incredibly frustrating and difficult position

:24:45.:24:48.

to be in. How has she been doing? She was very low before Christmas,

:24:49.:24:55.

we have been campaigning hard to bring her back for Christmas, and

:24:56.:24:57.

that did not happen. At some point she confessed to feeling suicidal

:24:58.:25:02.

and she went on hunger strike for a number of days, but brokered

:25:03.:25:06.

following the intervention of her family. Then she was put back into

:25:07.:25:11.

solitary confinement. On Christmas Day she had a family visit, and she

:25:12.:25:17.

was told she is being moved, and she has now been moved to the general

:25:18.:25:21.

cell. It is a long journey back to trust people, but being in company

:25:22.:25:25.

makes a big difference. You cannot go there at the moment, you have not

:25:26.:25:29.

been able to get a Visa? That is right. Trying to get an

:25:30.:25:36.

authorisation number is where I am, it is proving to be quite

:25:37.:25:41.

confiscated, but yes, that is the next step from my side. Your

:25:42.:25:45.

daughter has been staying with her grandparents, how is she doing? She

:25:46.:25:51.

is getting older, and she begins to ask questions, when are we going

:25:52.:25:56.

back to London, where our mummy and daddy? She talks about prison being

:25:57.:26:01.

mummy's bedroom. She does not understand things in the big sense

:26:02.:26:07.

and she is young enough to live in the moment, and she is in a place

:26:08.:26:13.

where she is loved. Nazanin can feel the difference, she is less missing

:26:14.:26:18.

her mum and she is an Iranian girl who speaks Farsi. But she is safe.

:26:19.:26:24.

If it went your way today, but they be able to come back as Mac --? If

:26:25.:26:35.

she was released I would expect that we would be able to get them home

:26:36.:26:38.

very quickly, that is dominant what happens. There is a problem around

:26:39.:26:43.

our daughter's passport, but I am sure there would be ways of sorting

:26:44.:26:49.

it if Nazanin is released. Best of luck.

:26:50.:26:55.

Time now to get the news, travel and weather where you are.

:26:56.:30:23.

Plenty more news travel and weather on our website at the usual

:30:24.:30:26.

Now though it's back to Louise and Dan.

:30:27.:30:29.

Hello this is Breakfast, with Louise Minchin and Dan Walker.

:30:30.:30:35.

It is 8:30am exactly. The latest news.

:30:36.:30:40.

Britain's outgoing ambassador to the EU, Sir Ivan Rogers,

:30:41.:30:42.

has strongly criticised the Government's

:30:43.:30:44.

In his resignation letter, he urged his colleagues to continue

:30:45.:30:48.

to challenge what he called muddled thinking and ill-founded arguments.

:30:49.:30:50.

Except to say that "Sir Ivan is free to express his own opinions."

:30:51.:30:57.

Earlier we spoke to Shadow Secretary of State

:30:58.:30:59.

for International Trade - Barry Gardiner.

:31:00.:31:02.

Civil servants have an important role to play with in the process of

:31:03.:31:12.

government to set out their views on how certain policy issues might be

:31:13.:31:15.

driven forwards. Than it is for politicians to take the advice from

:31:16.:31:19.

a broad range of areas and set the policies they want leading forwards.

:31:20.:31:24.

That is what the Prime Minister is doing.

:31:25.:31:25.

Meanwhile, the UK's countryside and wildlife could suffer post

:31:26.:31:28.

Brexit, according to a cross-party committee of MPs.

:31:29.:31:32.

Farmers could also face a loss of subsidies according to the report

:31:33.:31:35.

by the Environmental Audit Committee.

:31:36.:31:37.

It calls for new laws to ensure existing protections for farming

:31:38.:31:40.

are not weakened once Britain leaves the EU.

:31:41.:31:44.

The Government says it is committed to safeguarding and improving them.

:31:45.:31:48.

Former drivers for a private ambulance firm that provides

:31:49.:31:51.

emergency cover for the NHS, say they were given just an hour's

:31:52.:31:54.

A company based in Essex called the Private Ambulance Service

:31:55.:32:02.

is contracted to respond to emergencies during busy times.

:32:03.:32:04.

The company says the level of training of its staff exceeds

:32:05.:32:06.

There's more on this on the Victoria Derbyshire

:32:07.:32:09.

Over 5 million people in the UK currently receive

:32:10.:32:16.

treatment for asthma, but up to two thirds of them are not

:32:17.:32:19.

being given the care needed to manage their condition.

:32:20.:32:23.

Asthma UK, which commissioned the research, says that in 2015,

:32:24.:32:25.

1,500 people died from the disease, the highest number in a decade.

:32:26.:32:29.

The charity says both the NHS and people with asthma must take

:32:30.:32:35.

joint responsibility for their health.

:32:36.:32:39.

West Yorkshire Police have carried out further searches overnight

:32:40.:32:41.

after a man was shot and killed by officers

:32:42.:32:43.

after police in unmarked vehicles stopped a car just off

:32:44.:32:52.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission is probing the discovery

:32:53.:32:56.

It's being reported that the convicted mass murderer,

:32:57.:33:01.

Charles Manson, has been taken to hospital.

:33:02.:33:04.

Media reports say that Manson, who is in his 80s,

:33:05.:33:07.

has been moved to a hospital about an hour away from the state

:33:08.:33:10.

Manson, who was sentenced to life in prison, directed his followers

:33:11.:33:17.

to murder seven people in August 1969.

:33:18.:33:26.

We have been asking all morning to let us know if you felt this

:33:27.:33:30.

It was detected 100 miles from Scarborough last night.

:33:31.:33:35.

The British Geological Survey says the tremor,

:33:36.:33:37.

which was in the North Sea, happened just before 7pm yesterday

:33:38.:33:40.

Maybe you had to be in the North Sea to be aware of it.

:33:41.:33:45.

Possibly, in a little dinghy. Heroes come in all shapes

:33:46.:33:48.

and sizes, including extra small in this instance -

:33:49.:33:50.

and before we show you these pictures of a chest of drawers

:33:51.:33:55.

falling on to a two-year-old child, Brock Shoff was playing

:33:56.:33:58.

in the bedroom. He is on the left. I know it looks

:33:59.:34:05.

horrible. After the drawers fell on him,

:34:06.:34:10.

his twin brother, Bowdy, showed an impressive amount

:34:11.:34:12.

of strength and cool-headed It took a few minutes but we have

:34:13.:34:22.

shortened it down. He is safe and OK.

:34:23.:34:24.

The parents have released the footage to highlight concerns

:34:25.:34:26.

over the safety of children and tall furniture.

:34:27.:34:29.

That is why with most things like that you get a little tab at the

:34:30.:34:36.

back to screw it to the wall to stop that kind of thing happening.

:34:37.:34:41.

That's why they released it so that people don't suffer that problem.

:34:42.:34:43.

Victoria Derbyshire is on at 9am this morning on BBC Two.

:34:44.:34:47.

Good morning Victoria, what are you covering today?

:34:48.:34:48.

An investigation for our programme found some staff at a private

:34:49.:34:52.

ambulance firm claim they have had as little as one hour's training to

:34:53.:34:55.

drive under blue lights. He didn't really tell me what to do or

:34:56.:35:00.

anything like that, he just gave me everything, said put the blue lights

:35:01.:35:04.

on and off you go sort of thing. These ambulances not only transfer

:35:05.:35:07.

patients between hospitals but respond to emergency calls when the

Later we will clear up the diplodocus, diplodocus debate.

:36:09.:36:15.

The Natural History Museum have put us right on that.

:36:16.:36:21.

Shall we make people wait? Have we been saying it wrong all

:36:22.:36:23.

morning? Most of your life, I would imagine.

:36:24.:36:28.

I can't even remember now, it is too complicated. Good morning.

:36:29.:36:32.

Good morning. We're talking about a good goal

:36:33.:36:36.

celebration from Olivier Giroud. What does it remind you of?

:36:37.:36:39.

Morecambe and Wise. A remarkable comeback from Arsenal

:36:40.:36:41.

last night who scored three goals in the last 20 minutes to earn a 3-3

:36:42.:36:44.

draw at Bournemouth. Eddie Howe's side were in complete

:36:45.:36:47.

control as they led 3-0, Ryan Fraser scoring

their third goal. and a stoppage-time header

from Olivier Giroud completed Do we see his little dance? I hope

:36:52.:37:04.

we do. There we go. Bring me Sunshine!

It is actually a Scorpion kick, much cooler, but we are going with

in history to win 14 consecutive games in one season when they meet

:38:36.:38:38.

Tottenham at White Hart Lane. If they manage it the Blues

:38:39.:38:43.

will become only the fifth team, in any of the divisions

:38:44.:38:46.

to manage the feat. Former England defender,

:38:47.:38:48.

Danny Mills joins us now. Good morning, Danny. We talk about

:38:49.:38:57.

these big games we look forward to sometimes and they are not always

:38:58.:39:01.

brilliant when they happen, they? But tonight cannot fail, surely. I

:39:02.:39:06.

think there is extra spice in this one, what happened at Stamford

:39:07.:39:09.

Bridge at the end of last season with Chelsea ruining Tottenham's

:39:10.:39:13.

chances of winning the Premier League, Chelsea beat them earlier

:39:14.:39:16.

this season, Tottenham will want to spoil the party. It's not often

:39:17.:39:21.

about revenge in football because time moves on quickly and players

:39:22.:39:25.

change but these are basically the same sets of players and Tottenham

:39:26.:39:31.

will be desperate to stop them. They spoil the party last year.

:39:32.:39:35.

Massively. Chelsea captain John Terry said not on my watch,

:39:36.:39:39.

suggesting Spurs might have won the league. There is a huge rivalry and

:39:40.:39:42.

because of that Tottenham will not want them to win 14 in a row.

:39:43.:39:47.

Chelsea are fantastic at the moment, defensively they have been superb

:39:48.:39:51.

and that is why they are top of the league. That's not just because you

:39:52.:39:55.

are a defender? There is a bit of bias but ultimately without a good

:39:56.:39:59.

defence you don't win the title of. This is despite the fact, I think I

:40:00.:40:05.

remember talking to you when they brought in the curly haired

:40:06.:40:13.

Brazilian. David Luiz! My mind went blank for a moment. Has been

:40:14.:40:18.

forgettable at times. Heap was said not to be the best defender but

:40:19.:40:23.

Conte has rearranged things. -- he was said. Very good performances, no

:40:24.:40:26.

one is talking about his extravagant free kicks and extravagant mistakes

:40:27.:40:31.

anymore, it is just Dafydd Lewis playing well and that's the key. The

:40:32.:40:36.

difference is Conte, isn't it? He's made a massive difference. -- David

:40:37.:40:42.

Luiz. He's defensively minded and he has changed the back three and is as

:40:43.:40:46.

worked well for them. He's getting the best out of his players. Not

:40:47.:40:50.

necessarily the greatest players if you look at the wingbacks who have

:40:51.:40:53.

struggled at other Premier League clubs in their careers and suddenly

:40:54.:40:57.

now with his passion and everything he has he gets the best out of them.

:40:58.:41:03.

Including the crowd, we have seen him playing the crowd. Pep Guardiola

:41:04.:41:08.

tried it at Manchester City as well. It sort of worked but then in his

:41:09.:41:13.

interview afterwards maybe he wasn't as happy as he thought he was. We

:41:14.:41:18.

made a big fuss about Mourinho in the Premier League, Jurgen Klopp.

:41:19.:41:25.

And Guardiola. All of that first sand actually Conte slipped under

:41:26.:41:30.

the radar, a bit like Dyfed Luiz but he has been incredibly effective. --

:41:31.:41:34.

David Luiz. He knows what he wants to do and he has a plan and he is

:41:35.:41:38.

getting the best out of his players. Can we say that about Pep Guardiola

:41:39.:41:42.

at the moment? Possibly not. Can I interrupt you? Pasty news. Food

:41:43.:41:50.

giants and with brothers have broad west Cornwall pasty company in a

:41:51.:41:53.

multi-million pound deal three years after the Cornish baker was rescued

:41:54.:41:56.

out of administration by a fund backed by former England footballer

:41:57.:42:00.

Danny Mills. It's nice to be on the front page of the business news

:42:01.:42:04.

rather than the front page of any other paper. It is nice. I've known

:42:05.:42:09.

the guys who have run the parent company, Darren Wilson and Darryl

:42:10.:42:11.

Forshaw, for several years, the founding partners and we set up a

:42:12.:42:17.

small fund did invest in small and medium-size businesses and we took

:42:18.:42:19.

the pasty company out of administration just under three

:42:20.:42:26.

years ago and I've just sold it to the brothers who own the gin stirs

:42:27.:42:29.

group and it's an opportunity for them to take it forward and it is a

:42:30.:42:34.

great deal for us, the investment is five times on and it's been a great

:42:35.:42:37.

start to the year. What does it mean for pasties? More importantly we

:42:38.:42:43.

enhanced the product, Phil Vickerey was involved, Phil won MasterChef

:42:44.:42:51.

and he likes to remind me I was runner-up at the time. I know that

:42:52.:42:57.

feeling! We increased the brand, the diversification of products and

:42:58.:42:59.

we've really taken it to the next level and now it's up to him to take

:43:00.:43:05.

it on and enhance it and increase outlets and production. And again,

:43:06.:43:11.

this time of year, a good story, 230 odd jobs saved and hopefully they

:43:12.:43:16.

will create even more. Who knew! It is good news, isn't it? It is

:43:17.:43:22.

good news. Good news for you! It is not bad for me, a good start to the

:43:23.:43:27.

year. Cell brownies with pasties, chocolate treat with a bit of pastry

:43:28.:43:32.

goes a long way. Coffee and treats, whatever you want, we will provide

:43:33.:43:33.

it for you, Dan. Thank you. How many times have you heard

:43:34.:43:39.

your other half say, When many of us have

resolved to have a dry Especially for women with research

say couples are key to supporting each other if one of them wants

:43:52.:43:53.

to cut down on the booze. I think if your wife stops drinking

:43:54.:44:13.

I think you've got to do the right thing, we would support each other.

:44:14.:44:16.

I would have to challenge myself rather than get the other person to

:44:17.:44:27.

manage their own drinking habits. I just usually do it for my own

:44:45.:44:49.

Are you going to tell me to do it? I gave up for seven years and you

still drank. I just carried on! I think if one of us is going to do

:44:53.:45:02.

it we would both have to do it so we were both as in it as each other. In

:45:03.:45:07.

the past it has helped us a lot doing things together, so I would

:45:08.:45:11.

advise anyone else, definitely, do it as a couple. You've got each

:45:12.:45:15.

other's back then and it really helps.

:45:16.:45:18.

A lot of you have been really supportive about this. It is a

:45:19.:45:25.

popular topic. And says that one person loses their drinking buddy, I

:45:26.:45:29.

stopped two years ago, it was the best decision I ever made. My

:45:30.:45:34.

husband still loves his wine, but while he drinks his wine I drink

:45:35.:45:38.

soft drink and we enjoy ourselves together. Joe and says that her

:45:39.:45:45.

fella drank ten -- bought ten cans over Christmas and still has eight

:45:46.:45:48.

left. Someone else says that they wish that people respected their

:45:49.:45:56.

decisions not to drink. Another says that they gave up drinking due to

:45:57.:46:00.

temporary medication, her boyfriend did the same, it is easier to do it

:46:01.:46:07.

together. Helen says she shocked by how many people have drinking

:46:08.:46:10.

problems these days, some people cannot spend a day without drinking.

:46:11.:46:15.

Simon says you have two support one another.

:46:16.:46:20.

If you are having a dry January, good luck, stay with it! I am

:46:21.:46:26.

trying... Is your other half causing an issue? The trouble is, when the

:46:27.:46:30.

wine is on the table, it is so tempting to have a little sip... Why

:46:31.:46:38.

not put some blackcurrant juice there? For me? That's a good idea!

:46:39.:46:42.

Then you have the sensation and the feeling! It's not the same! I'm

:46:43.:46:46.

trying... Maybe Carol has some ideas!

:46:47.:46:51.

Good morning! Not dry January in terms of the weather, there is some

:46:52.:46:57.

rain in the forecast, patchy, but not here, this beautiful picture

:46:58.:47:00.

from one of our Weather Watchers were sent in this morning. A

:47:01.:47:04.

cracking picture of London, Twickenham with a lovely start to

:47:05.:47:08.

the day, there is card cover around. Over the next 24 hours, some of it

:47:09.:47:14.

will see sunshine but it will be frosty tonight -- cloud cover.

:47:15.:47:19.

Widespread away from the coast. This weather front moves south, bringing

:47:20.:47:25.

in cloud, patchy rain and drizzle. Called across Scotland and northern

:47:26.:47:30.

England, as the weather front pushes down towards the south-west, colder

:47:31.:47:34.

air digs writing behind it, the sun comes out as well. Windy down the

:47:35.:47:40.

coast, in Shetland and Aberdeenshire, it will be wintry.

:47:41.:47:45.

There will be rain in Norfolk, but as the sun comes out, except in

:47:46.:47:50.

southern areas, this weather front produces cloud and the odd spot of

:47:51.:47:55.

rain but even so, here and there, there will be sunshine. Drifting

:47:56.:47:59.

over towards the south-eastern corner into Kent, and East Anglia,

:48:00.:48:04.

some sunshine, a bit of cloud at times, shall was coming in from the

:48:05.:48:09.

North Sea. In the Midlands, heading north across northern England, it is

:48:10.:48:11.

a cracking day. Close to the North Sea, more cloud

:48:12.:48:17.

and a bit windy. In Scotland, dry and sunny weather except in the far

:48:18.:48:20.

north-east where there are some when three showers and the sun comes out

:48:21.:48:25.

in Northern Ireland. The last to come out across the South of

:48:26.:48:30.

Northern Ireland and Wales. In the south-west, back under the influence

:48:31.:48:33.

of this weather front producing cloud and patches of rain and

:48:34.:48:37.

drizzle. Through the evening and overnight, these blues dominate the

:48:38.:48:42.

chart. Temperatures fall like a rock quickly and we have widespread

:48:43.:48:46.

frosts away from the coast, and away from where we have this weather

:48:47.:48:50.

front. In towns and cities it is minus two degrees or minus three

:48:51.:48:55.

degrees, it could get as low as -7 in the countryside tonight.

:48:56.:48:59.

There's a chance that we could see the odd pocket of freezing fog.

:49:00.:49:05.

After the cold start, a lot of dry weather and sunshine around, some

:49:06.:49:09.

cloud here and there. Then we have the remnants of this weather front

:49:10.:49:12.

across south-west England, Pembrokeshire and heading into

:49:13.:49:15.

Northern Ireland. More cloudy here with spots of rain. Then, the next

:49:16.:49:20.

is waiting in the wings which will bring in wet and windy conditions as

:49:21.:49:25.

it pushes steadily southwards through Thursday and into Friday.

:49:26.:49:28.

Before it arrives in the south, we are looking at a cold and frosty

:49:29.:49:32.

start and, more readily, there will be fog on Friday morning. As the

:49:33.:49:38.

rain goes southwards, it will left, windy around it and nothing to

:49:39.:49:42.

substantial. Then a return to brighter spells and some showers.

:49:43.:49:47.

Mild conditions come by on Friday, in Norwich, and as we head to the

:49:48.:49:52.

weekend, the theme continues. It is a relatively mild weekend, settled

:49:53.:49:56.

and at times it will be cloudy but we will have sunshine, some patches

:49:57.:50:00.

of rain at times, but another weather front comes into the

:50:01.:50:03.

north-west, bringing in more organised rain on Sunday.

:50:04.:50:10.

STUDIO: Organised rain, my goodness. Before we let you go, you know, are

:50:11.:50:23.

you "diplo-docus", "di-ploddi-cus", or "dip-lod-i-cus"? The first one!

:50:24.:50:31.

73% of you viewers feel like it is "diplo-docus". But the Natural

:50:32.:50:37.

History Museum have been in contact saying it is "di-ploddi-cus", but I

:50:38.:50:41.

have been used to saying it is "dip-lod-i-cus". They say that

:50:42.:50:46.

struck me speaking it should be "diplo-docus".

:50:47.:50:48.

It is Americans -- "dip-loddi-kus", not

:50:49.:51:08.

"diplo-docus". Dinosaurs haven't roamed the earth

:51:09.:51:11.

for quite some time, but one by the name of Dippy

:51:12.:51:13.

is about to embark It will travel around museums

:51:14.:51:16.

across the country but first, there's the small matter

:51:17.:51:19.

of dismantling it. Breakfast's Tim Muffett

:51:20.:51:21.

is with Dippy now. The latest I've heard is to say it

:51:22.:51:25.

however you want! This exhibit here arrived in 1905, and it has been in

:51:26.:51:28.

the main hall since 1979, and more than 5 million people in year come

:51:29.:51:31.

to the museum, and they stand here in wonder, and admire it. Many

:51:32.:51:37.

people have been inspired by science due to this being their first memory

:51:38.:51:40.

of visiting London. But it is going to be dismantled and will go on a UK

:51:41.:51:45.

tour, but how do you take apart and exhibit is famous and as precious as

:51:46.:51:51.

this? We will be speaking to the person responsible for doing that in

:51:52.:51:55.

just a moment, but here are some facts about Dippy from some visitors

:51:56.:51:58.

# Everybody walk the dinosaur here at the museum...

:51:59.:52:02.

Dippy is 21 metres long and made up of 292 bones.

:52:03.:52:16.

Dippy is a plaster cast replica of a skeleton found

:52:17.:52:18.

Dippy has been viewed by more than 90 million visitors.

:52:19.:52:29.

Dippy will be going on a two-year tour around the UK and will be

:52:30.:52:32.

replaced here by the skeleton of a blue whale.

:52:33.:52:34.

We are a little sad because Dippy sort of feels like an old friend,

:52:35.:52:38.

It gives people an opportunity to see an amazing dinosaur that

:52:39.:52:49.

# Open the door, get on the floor to see at all.

:52:50.:52:57.

The person responsible for taking Dippy apart safely and taking her on

:52:58.:53:16.

tour, or taking him? Lorraine is the head of conservation here, where

:53:17.:53:19.

will you start? We want to start by taking down the glass barrier, then

:53:20.:53:23.

we will build scaffolding, you can see that it is quite high in some

:53:24.:53:28.

areas. Then, we go for the tail, we will take it down, like and

:53:29.:53:33.

threading pearls from a string of pearls, then we move up to the head,

:53:34.:53:39.

to the neck, then we come to the middle area which is more

:53:40.:53:43.

complicated. And then we take each Bonaparte. As you can see, she's a

:53:44.:53:47.

little dusty so we will clean it and have a look at the conditions -- we

:53:48.:53:53.

will take each bone apart. Is there a chance that you can damage it by

:53:54.:53:57.

doing that? You have to be careful and considered, we have had three or

:53:58.:54:03.

four inspections, we think it should be OK. Fingers crossed. You will

:54:04.:54:08.

visit eight destinations across the UK. We will see the names of those

:54:09.:54:13.

places on the screen now, how do you choose which places get to exhibit

:54:14.:54:18.

Dippy? The first thing in size, Dippy is quite big so the venue has

:54:19.:54:25.

to be able to take something of Dippy's side, and the venue has to

:54:26.:54:30.

offer more to visitors in terms of stories about the natural history in

:54:31.:54:34.

their region, so we short listed these eight venues which are

:54:35.:54:39.

partnering with local museums, Natural History Museum -- societies

:54:40.:54:49.

and schools. And when the exhibition comes to an end in 2020, what will

:54:50.:54:55.

happen to Dippy then? It is a registered specimen and part of the

:54:56.:54:58.

natural collection, we want to make sure that Dippy is on show somewhere

:54:59.:55:02.

and accessible, so we are talking to people and will think about what we

:55:03.:55:05.

will do with Dippy, but we would like Dippy to be on show somewhere.

:55:06.:55:10.

A blue whale will be on show somewhere, and you can say that

:55:11.:55:15.

Dippy will never be in this space again? Until six o'clock today, then

:55:16.:55:20.

he will go, then the blue whale will go there. The blue well will have a

:55:21.:55:28.

different impact, it's an iconic specimen, Dippy is a cast, the blue

:55:29.:55:32.

whale is real. It will talk about a lot of the science that we do and we

:55:33.:55:39.

hope it will engage people with the natural world, we hunted whales to

:55:40.:55:42.

extension, we have brought them back. We want to tell stories about

:55:43.:55:47.

our science. Some people have been intact saying they remember coming

:55:48.:55:51.

to the museum as a kid and they are now working in science, it has a wow

:55:52.:55:56.

factor, you are taking it down, it is a big call? It is but we will put

:55:57.:56:03.

it together again and tour the UK, hoping to inspire people from around

:56:04.:56:08.

the UK, that is what we do, we have 80 million objects here, we like to

:56:09.:56:11.

loan them out and get other people to see them.

:56:12.:56:13.

Lorraine, thank you for explaining this task, taking that apart safely

:56:14.:56:20.

and putting it back together in eight different places over the next

:56:21.:56:24.

few years, good luck to Lorraine and everyone from Breakfast. Dippy,

:56:25.:56:28.

goodbye from the Natural History Museum but enjoy your journey around

:56:29.:56:32.

the UK so a lot of people can enjoy this site we are seeing this

:56:33.:56:33.

morning. STUDIO: Thank you.

:56:34.:56:39.

That is one of my first memories. He looks like he was listening... He,

:56:40.:56:44.

or she, Dippy, let's be clear! We will stick with that from now one!

:56:45.:56:50.

From fraudulent crematorium owners to budgie-stealing

:56:51.:56:52.

teenagers crying wolf, the TV show No Offence is crime

:56:53.:56:54.

Set within the Manchester Police force, the series follows a team

:56:55.:56:58.

of detectives who have to crack some unusual cases.

:56:59.:57:02.

We'll be joined by two of the programme's actors

:57:03.:57:04.

in a moment, Joanna Scanlan and Alexandra Roach,

:57:05.:57:06.

We are rain. -- we are in. Get the whole congregation in. Yes,

:57:07.:57:23.

beautiful! Get us a look at the other front

:57:24.:57:43.

row... Relax. Somebody is bound to be videoing... I will send you a

:57:44.:57:47.

copy. Joining us now are Joanna Scanlan

:57:48.:57:52.

and Alexandra Roach who both play It's lovely to see you both. Thank

:57:53.:58:02.

you, and for people who have not seen it, it is a mix of comedy and

:58:03.:58:07.

crime? Is that how you would describe it? It is definitely crime!

:58:08.:58:13.

It takes both the boxes! It is a drama, really, in that you get a

:58:14.:58:17.

fantastic story which is truly involving. But, it has a fantastic

:58:18.:58:22.

spin all the time where things come in, so surprisingly, that they are

:58:23.:58:29.

funny. So, I used to grow about on a place for today, they were dramas

:58:30.:58:32.

but incredibly funny at the same time, but it is in that spirit. What

:58:33.:58:37.

is it like coming back after a 14 month break? Yes, it was quite long,

:58:38.:58:42.

coming up to Manchester to film for five months and get back into the

:58:43.:58:49.

same detective outlets and suits, and hair... -- outfits. I am playing

:58:50.:58:56.

Joy, a serious buttoned up character. We can see her, here. She

:58:57.:59:02.

is fun to play. And you wrote a lot of it? No Offence? No offence... I'd

:59:03.:59:14.

tell you, I've got up to early! I didn't, we definitely didn't, Paul

:59:15.:59:18.

Abbott wrote it. That is the thing, it is so well written that if we

:59:19.:59:22.

meddled, we were talking about improvising with the show and you

:59:23.:59:27.

cannot do it. It does not work. The lines are so fast and beautifully

:59:28.:59:31.

composed, and really funny, that, hands off... And he writes powerful

:59:32.:59:41.

women in a brilliant way? Yes. There are six female characters upfront...

:59:42.:59:44.

There cannot be many productions you work on that like that? To be

:59:45.:59:49.

honest, there isn't. I do not know if it will happen again. We enjoy

:59:50.:59:53.

working together and what I loved it is not mentioned in the show. It's

:59:54.:00:02.

not that vehicle for this, female parts. We are just women doing our

:00:03.:00:06.

job. And we are so used to having female bosses in this world. The

:00:07.:00:11.

truth is, everybody is working to a female boss, so that is why I think

:00:12.:00:15.

one of the reasons the show works is that we are looking at our own

:00:16.:00:19.

lives. It's a mirror to nature. Do you like playing a female boss? I

:00:20.:00:26.

love it! Why particularly? I am modest, quite shy and retiring and

:00:27.:00:31.

would never interpose my views on anybody! This character is the

:00:32.:00:36.

absolute opposite -- impose. She is fast, balls a and is not allow any

:00:37.:00:43.

truck with anything other than what works in terms of getting what she

:00:44.:00:48.

wants. And in terms of storylines, what can you reveal about the second

:00:49.:00:52.

series? People who watched the first would know that there are crazy

:00:53.:00:56.

crimes taking place! And you try to get to the bottom of them? This is

:00:57.:01:01.

very much the same and it is a new story, if you've not seen the first

:01:02.:01:05.

series then you can jumping into the deep end with this. And follow it

:01:06.:01:11.

through. It is fast paced and we think it is establishing gang and

:01:12.:01:15.

turf wars in Manchester, but as you dive into it, in our jobs, it

:01:16.:01:23.

becomes a whole depth of crime and... It is a more complex story

:01:24.:01:29.

than you first think. It is two families, there is ours, the police,

:01:30.:01:33.

and then there is the crime family, and initially we think it is about

:01:34.:01:37.

how the police. That happening. But actually there are a lot of twists

:01:38.:01:42.

and turns, and it goes to some grim places on the way... It will be dark

:01:43.:01:49.

and funny... You came to Manchester to film for five months and being an

:01:50.:01:53.

actor, it is quite a different job, you had to put things on hold a bit?

:01:54.:02:02.

Yes, you live for five or six months which is the nature of the job, I

:02:03.:02:06.

love it, and I got to know Manchester, and all of these

:02:07.:02:09.

different cities, like Leeds and Liverpool... And it helps that you

:02:10.:02:15.

all get on! Argh, look at that! And what have you been doing in the

:02:16.:02:17.

meantime? Inside number nine which is on BBC

:02:18.:02:29.

Two, I did that, and that will be coming out around February time, I

:02:30.:02:33.

think, which is a really dark comedy with Steve Pemberton and Rhys Shear

:02:34.:02:37.

Smith that they wrote. You are doing some writing for an American show,

:02:38.:02:45.

is that right? Puppy love, a show that we did for BBC, we are doing a

:02:46.:02:49.

version for HBO so we have been working on that a lot. It is

:02:50.:02:57.

fascinating. That is exciting. Yes, it is set in America. Americans love

:02:58.:03:01.

their dogs as much as we do. How many changes are you having to make?

:03:02.:03:07.

Surprisingly few. Dog owners are dog owners within our Western world

:03:08.:03:10.

bubble, that way of dealing with animals is exactly the same in the

:03:11.:03:14.

UK and America. Do you have to work in a writers' room? I don't know if

:03:15.:03:24.

that qualifies, we have a writers' room of two. I always imagined you

:03:25.:03:32.

sitting there brainstorming. We are going to be pretty contained, if you

:03:33.:03:36.

have to write 20 episodes you'll have a lot more writers on board.

:03:37.:03:42.

But we worked with HBO on Getting On which was a BBC show they did three

:03:43.:03:48.

series of in the States they only had two writers as well. It can work

:03:49.:03:53.

with a duo. All the best with that. Thank you very much. You can watch

:03:54.:04:00.

No Offence From The Start, Or You Can Dive Into Night it starts at 9pm

:04:01.:04:04.

on Channel 4. hope you can join me then

:04:05.:05:38.

- bye bye. Most of us like to be a little

:05:39.:05:49.

bit nosey when it comes to other people's houses,

:05:50.:05:53.

but this is a new level. These incredible pictures you see

:05:54.:05:57.

behind us were all taken from high-end designed homes

:05:58.:06:00.

in extreme locations. They form part of a new TV series

:06:01.:06:04.

where architect Piers Taylor and actress Caroline Quentin find

:06:05.:06:07.

out more about the properties, We'll speak to Piers

:06:08.:06:09.

in a moment, first, let's take Oh, OK.

:06:10.:06:13.

Hang on. This is actually fabulous

:06:14.:06:17.

looking but quite It's going.

:06:18.:06:22.

That's it. Do you know what I

:06:23.:06:27.

really love about it? You've got the desert and

:06:28.:06:50.

the mountains on either side and yet this house just enhances it

:06:51.:06:53.

and doesn't take away from it. Preserving the natural beauty

:06:54.:06:55.

of these mountains was key to the The owners' desire was

:06:56.:07:02.

to embrace rather than It was just peaceful even looking at

:07:03.:07:25.

that. I want to go. You stayed a night in that, didn't you? We did.

:07:26.:07:33.

With did a real pilgrimage, fragile ecosystem, we let ourselves into

:07:34.:07:39.

this house which was an extraordinary architectural

:07:40.:07:41.

environment, like no other I've been to. They are extraordinary homes and

:07:42.:07:45.

they are all over the place. Is there a favourite for you? They are

:07:46.:07:50.

all favourites but there was some interesting experiences I had as an

:07:51.:07:53.

architect. I'm used to judging things quickly from outside but

:07:54.:08:04.

there was an old barn built into a hillside which you had to go through

:08:05.:08:06.

a tunnel before you are merged into it. Is it this one? Yes, it is in

:08:07.:08:15.

Switzerland. You go into this old farm barn and then go into this

:08:16.:08:18.

extraordinary underground tunnel made out of concrete lid with chinks

:08:19.:08:22.

of light coming from above before you emerge in the hillside looking

:08:23.:08:25.

at this extraordinary Swiss landscape. The theatre of it was

:08:26.:08:31.

something humbling. Imagine waking up to that every morning. You would

:08:32.:08:37.

never leave, would you? There was a hot tub Caroline and I ended our

:08:38.:08:40.

time in the house in, it was fantastic. The theme seems to be

:08:41.:08:45.

they are so much part of their environment. Is this the way we will

:08:46.:08:50.

build houses in the future, or is there a change going on? It is the

:08:51.:08:53.

way we use to build houses, we couldn't do anything other than look

:08:54.:08:57.

at the vernacular, how people build houses locally, the techniques and

:08:58.:09:00.

materials used, but also look at how you can build in a landscape without

:09:01.:09:04.

destroying them. What was great about all of the houses we went to

:09:05.:09:08.

was they were building extraordinary locations but the house is often

:09:09.:09:12.

made the location is better, they didn't make them worse. This one is

:09:13.:09:15.

in a forest, a good indication of what you are talking about. There

:09:16.:09:19.

was not a single tree knocked down here so they looked at how they

:09:20.:09:22.

could weave the house among the trees without disturbing the roots

:09:23.:09:27.

and you end up with a piece of architecture that is very responsive

:09:28.:09:31.

and sensitive to where it is. I was blown away by people's creativity

:09:32.:09:35.

and the way you could see a space command in my small brain I would

:09:36.:09:39.

just build a blockhouse, and yet the design is just really inspirational

:09:40.:09:43.

to look at, it must be to walk around as well. That is

:09:44.:09:48.

architecture, architecture is about making extraordinary things

:09:49.:09:51.

possible. That is what you spent nine years doing, working out how to

:09:52.:09:54.

do something that is extraordinary, that is in some cases quite

:09:55.:09:58.

transformative in terms of the beauty and the possibilities of what

:09:59.:10:03.

you are designing. Tell me about the 747 wings, because this is

:10:04.:10:08.

extraordinary. The 747 house was really California, we went into the

:10:09.:10:11.

Californian mountains and there was an old art collector, she was an old

:10:12.:10:15.

but she had a huge tradition of collecting things and she employed a

:10:16.:10:20.

very Californian architect to make a house of effectively salvaged and

:10:21.:10:23.

consumer waste. But what he did was she bought on his behalf and old 747

:10:24.:10:30.

Anne Begg disassembled it, brought the wings across the desert carried

:10:31.:10:34.

by helicopter before they settled on the top of this extraordinary

:10:35.:10:38.

hillside looking at the Santa Monica Mountains and it was mind blowing.

:10:39.:10:42.

The other thing I like about this programme is the dynamic between you

:10:43.:10:45.

and Caroline Quentin. In some ways it shouldn't work but it does. Was

:10:46.:10:51.

it originally conceived as a single presenter programme? Yes, it was

:10:52.:10:54.

conceived as a single present programme, but we thought that is

:10:55.:10:58.

quite boring, architects telling people about houses is much less

:10:59.:11:00.

interesting than showing people what I like to be in than talking about

:11:01.:11:04.

them with somebody else, travelling with somebody else, arriving with

:11:05.:11:09.

somebody else, mucking around with somebody else, and we developed a

:11:10.:11:12.

good friendship and we went on holiday with my wife and her husband

:11:13.:11:15.

and we carried on doing the same thing, talking about things jumping

:11:16.:11:19.

out and it was great. You seem to have been given the keys to all of

:11:20.:11:24.

these houses. We have the keys to all of them and it was a privilege

:11:25.:11:28.

to do a pilgrimage to these places and for me it was it kind of

:11:29.:11:32.

sabbatical to go to these places I had read about. It is a curious

:11:33.:11:36.

relationship between the homeowners and the architects, always an

:11:37.:11:40.

interesting relationship to see. It is a very symbiotic relationship,

:11:41.:11:44.

isn't it? Very sympathetic and the architect's job is not just to take

:11:45.:11:49.

the brief and make what they want, just to push people to try and give

:11:50.:11:53.

people what they never dreamt possible but somehow in their psyche

:11:54.:11:56.

they thought they could have. They are dream homes, aren't they? They

:11:57.:12:02.

are. You cannot help but be envious because none of these are done on a

:12:03.:12:07.

small budget. This is quite modest, only 100 square metres, but it is on

:12:08.:12:12.

a rocky outcrop 20 miles off the coast of Sweden in the Archipelago

:12:13.:12:16.

and it's a piece of landscape. You can walk over the building. You can

:12:17.:12:20.

inhabit it like you would a rocky outcrop by the sea, by the coast, it

:12:21.:12:24.

is a beautiful experience being in a building that isn't just a box with

:12:25.:12:28.

doors and windows like the one next door. How about the one where you

:12:29.:12:32.

couldn't make a cup of tea? That would be a problem for me. It was

:12:33.:12:36.

extraordinary in terms of architectural ambition, like going

:12:37.:12:40.

into the engine room of a Nasa rocket, but actually the question

:12:41.:12:43.

was how to make a cup of tea and you can't just put the kettle on and

:12:44.:12:47.

fill it up, you have to learn how to make a cup of tea. That was quite

:12:48.:12:51.

fun, you couldn't make a cup of tea. Can I ask what sort of people on the

:12:52.:12:58.

sorts of houses? Are they business types? Other people who have loads

:12:59.:13:01.

of cash? They are people interested in architecture. They are all people

:13:02.:13:04.

really interested in architecture, not doing them to show off, they are

:13:05.:13:09.

doing them to make a lifetime's vision come true. They fall in love

:13:10.:13:12.

with a place, often have a memory of a childhood and they have spent 20

:13:13.:13:17.

or 30 years to get the money together to do it, some of them,

:13:18.:13:20.

then they will have something for the rest of their lives and very few

:13:21.:13:24.

people will see it. It's not about showing off, it's doing something

:13:25.:13:31.

extraordinary for themselves. Piers Taylor, thank you for joining us.

:13:32.:13:34.

And The World's Most Extraordinary Homes is on BBC Two on Friday

:13:35.:13:37.

and you came back with a catalogue of travel disasters.

:13:38.:13:48.

It's a nightmare. Wake me up from it, please.

:13:49.:13:53.

It was just a shambles, that's the best way to say it.

:13:54.:13:59.

ANGELA: So, whether it's a deliberate rip-off,
