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

:00:00.:00:00.

Hello, and welcome to Look East, with Stewart and me.

:00:00.:00:00.

The headlines tonight, from Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk.

:00:00.:00:10.

The Labour leader comes to this region with the party's message

:00:11.:00:12.

We find out what it means for workers and employers here.

:00:13.:00:24.

Can we, and should we wean our agriculture industry off subsidies

:00:25.:00:26.

Cabbies protest in Essex as Uber drivers with a criminal

:00:27.:00:31.

And Reginald James Watson, an old soldier with no

:00:32.:00:36.

surviving relatives, gets a fitting sendoff

:00:37.:00:37.

The Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn came to this region today

:00:38.:00:56.

to make his most important speech of the New Year.

:00:57.:01:00.

He told supporters in Peterborough that, under Labour, EU

:01:01.:01:03.

migrants who are already here would have their

:01:04.:01:05.

And he said he would not bow to pressure to support

:01:06.:01:08.

Mr Corbyn's defence of migrant workers will have gone down well

:01:09.:01:15.

in many areas of multicultural Peterborough.

:01:16.:01:17.

But he also reassured Brexit-supporting parts of this

:01:18.:01:19.

region that he will lobby for schemes to prevent

:01:20.:01:21.

cheap migrant labour from undercutting local workers.

:01:22.:01:22.

Let's get more now from our political

:01:23.:01:24.

More than 55% of our region voted to leave the EU last year in the

:01:25.:01:43.

referendum. 61% of them here in Peterborough. Jeremy Corbyn and most

:01:44.:01:48.

of labour were on the Remainer side, in a region by labour has always

:01:49.:01:53.

struggled. A lot of interest in the speech from the Labour leader, one

:01:54.:01:57.

which will play a large part in determining the fortunes of labour

:01:58.:02:00.

in this region for some time to come.

:02:01.:02:05.

Labour are under growing a New Year beer brand, the speech was billed as

:02:06.:02:12.

Jeremy Corbyn's big response to Brexit.

:02:13.:02:15.

Labour accepts those challenges that the voters have given.

:02:16.:02:19.

Among his ideas, more money for the NHS, a crackdown on high levels of

:02:20.:02:24.

pay, and a new policy on immigration. The advance briefing

:02:25.:02:28.

was he would back a restriction on the numbers coming to Britain but he

:02:29.:02:33.

did not say that. He spoke about the importance of migrants to our

:02:34.:02:36.

economy and said improving local services was the answer.

:02:37.:02:41.

The question of underfunding of services is crucial in this city,

:02:42.:02:46.

Peterborough for example, this council seems more interested in

:02:47.:02:50.

selling council housing to private sector rather than housing the

:02:51.:02:53.

people who are homeless. You say if there was more funding,

:02:54.:02:59.

people would be so concerned about immigration?

:03:00.:03:02.

Sometimes there are issues surrounding shortages of services

:03:03.:03:06.

where people are unfairly blamed. It is generally accepted theories

:03:07.:03:10.

about the pressures caused by immigration were the reason for the

:03:11.:03:14.

large Brexit boat. The Leave campaign say the solution is to

:03:15.:03:19.

limit numbers, Jeremy Corbyn believes more support for local

:03:20.:03:24.

councils is the answer. It is reassuring voters we are

:03:25.:03:28.

listening. There was a vote in June and people have had their say.

:03:29.:03:32.

We need to make sure we as a party of the people are listening to what

:03:33.:03:36.

they are saying. The thoughts of people in

:03:37.:03:39.

Peterborough? I think we should put a cap on it.

:03:40.:03:44.

But some are hard workers. There are a lot of jobs that perhaps

:03:45.:03:53.

we don't want to do that people do. You will have two cap numbers, there

:03:54.:03:57.

is no other way. Why come to a probe Brexit meeting

:03:58.:04:03.

to deliver an anti-Brexit message. Jeremy Corbyn is hoping to win new

:04:04.:04:04.

supporters. Of course, the other big issue

:04:05.:04:07.

for this region as far as Brexit And there's a lot of uncertainty

:04:08.:04:10.

about what will happen Our environment reporter

:04:11.:04:13.

Richard Daniel says many farmers May last year, the then Environment

:04:14.:04:28.

Secretary is handed a pig. By her side supporting the remaining

:04:29.:04:33.

campaign, the Suffolk pig farmer Jimmy Butler. Seven months on the

:04:34.:04:37.

now supports Brexit. The weaker pound has boosted sales of his free

:04:38.:04:42.

range pork. He doesn't qualify for EU subsidies but he thinks they

:04:43.:04:46.

should be phased out. Subsidies don't do us any favour

:04:47.:04:50.

with the public, they see us as a protected species. All it it is

:04:51.:04:54.

saving on the cost of production. The money comes from the taxpayer to

:04:55.:05:00.

be handed back to the farmer. British farmers receive ?3 billion a

:05:01.:05:06.

year in subsidy, 55% of total UK farm income. Scrapping the payments

:05:07.:05:11.

would have a huge impact on the way our countryside is managed. The

:05:12.:05:16.

current system of subsidies has plenty of critics. Conservationists

:05:17.:05:21.

say it has failed to protect biodiversity. Others say the

:05:22.:05:24.

wealthiest land owners take the lions share of payment.

:05:25.:05:31.

Johnson's 1800 acres near Cambridge. Last year his business received

:05:32.:05:37.

?155,000 in subsidies. The uncertainty of the future is

:05:38.:05:40.

worrying. We received ?90 an acre on our cat

:05:41.:05:46.

payments. As far as income or profitability,

:05:47.:05:53.

without that support, we wouldn't make a profit. We read quite a lot

:05:54.:05:58.

of land as well. We will have to look carefully to see how we can

:05:59.:06:03.

structure the farm so they can remain viable in this new climate.

:06:04.:06:09.

His uncertainty hitting confidence? This magazine in Ipswich has

:06:10.:06:13.

reported farm machinery sales are holding up but there is no denying

:06:14.:06:16.

the challenge. The Government has admitted they

:06:17.:06:20.

were not prepared for Brexit. They are coming from behind, needing to

:06:21.:06:26.

get the best trade deals. They are trying. But we are hopelessly

:06:27.:06:30.

unprepared. As Jimmy's optimism shows, there are

:06:31.:06:36.

others who see the current situation as an opportunity.

:06:37.:06:38.

We touched on farming and immigration, the major issues come

:06:39.:06:50.

Brexit? Ten days into January and these

:06:51.:06:54.

issues are being talked about not just by us but in a lot of

:06:55.:06:58.

conversations taking place around office tables and businesses. Not

:06:59.:07:05.

surprising, farming and fishing, very important industries in the

:07:06.:07:09.

region. Immigration the main driver for the leave vote last year. A

:07:10.:07:14.

third important issue, the future of education, science and research post

:07:15.:07:18.

Brexit which will be addressed tomorrow by a House Of Commons

:07:19.:07:24.

committee looking into the impact of Brexit on that sector.

:07:25.:07:27.

How significant was it Jeremy Corbyn came to Peterborough today?

:07:28.:07:32.

The first reason is he was coming to a major city in a major area where

:07:33.:07:40.

many voted leave. The other is, to form a Government, Labour needs to

:07:41.:07:46.

win sites -- Needs to win seats in places like Harlow, Basildon,

:07:47.:07:50.

Charmouth, to win over Labour supporters again.

:07:51.:07:51.

An inquest has been told that police charged a mentally ill man

:07:52.:07:54.

with attempted murder so that he could be remanded

:07:55.:07:56.

Weeks later, Dean Saunders was found dead in his cell

:07:57.:08:00.

One police officer said they felt they were being

:08:01.:08:03.

pushed into the decision because a psychiatrist refused

:08:04.:08:05.

Robby West is outside the Coroner's Court in Chelmsford now.

:08:06.:08:19.

Yesterday we heard how this father and brother were injured when they

:08:20.:08:26.

stopped him cutting his own throat. Today focused on the event after he

:08:27.:08:29.

was taken to Basildon police station. These suicide events had

:08:30.:08:39.

been recorded on the police system. There was also read out on his

:08:40.:08:43.

throat from an attempt to take his own life according to the Sergeant.

:08:44.:08:48.

When a psychiatrist from the mental health partnership trust assessed

:08:49.:08:51.

him, she was not aware of his intention to kill himself. The

:08:52.:08:57.

doctor said she had not seen the police log or risk assessments, she

:08:58.:09:00.

had not seen any red marks on his throat either. She did not section

:09:01.:09:05.

Dean said he could be placed in a secure hospital unit because he had

:09:06.:09:11.

not been charged. The court heard he was charged later with attempted

:09:12.:09:14.

murder in order to get him remanded to protect him.

:09:15.:09:19.

A man from Norwich has been charged with murdering

:09:20.:09:21.

32-year-old Kerri McAuley was found dead at a flat

:09:22.:09:25.

A post mortem examination was inconclusive but police believe

:09:26.:09:28.

Joe Storey, who's 26, will appear at Norwich

:09:29.:09:31.

A crowdfunding page has been set up to pay for her funeral.

:09:32.:09:35.

It's already exceeded its ?5,000 target and currently

:09:36.:09:37.

Several bunches of flowers have been left close to the block

:09:38.:09:41.

This region has lost out to Lincolnshire in the battle

:09:42.:09:45.

to get the headquarters of a major new windfarm.

:09:46.:09:47.

The Racebank field is a just a short distance from the port

:09:48.:09:50.

But the company behind it has opted to base its operations in Grimsby

:09:51.:09:54.

The race is on to build a string of wind farms off our coast.

:09:55.:09:59.

This is work underway to lay cables for the Galloper field off Suffolk.

:10:00.:10:02.

Once they are completed, each wind farm needs a port

:10:03.:10:07.

where its operations can be based for the long-term.

:10:08.:10:09.

These operations and maintenance bases as they are called are highly

:10:10.:10:12.

prized because they offer jobs to engineers and maintenance

:10:13.:10:14.

The Racebank field off north Norfolk considered Grimsby,

:10:15.:10:22.

It has come down in favour of Grimsby.

:10:23.:10:26.

Wells felt it was in a good position to win the work as the closest

:10:27.:10:45.

We'd like to have seen some benefits to the north Norfolk coast.

:10:46.:10:59.

Racebank is only 14 miles from here, 40 miles from Grimsby.

:11:00.:11:01.

I'm a little bit surprised but I'm sure they did their business plan.

:11:02.:11:04.

They already have a base in Grimsby, I'm guessing

:11:05.:11:07.

Wells is already the operations base for the Sheringham Shell field.

:11:08.:11:11.

Having Racebank would have helped diversify its economy

:11:12.:11:13.

There are currently seven operations bases on our coast either working

:11:14.:11:17.

or waiting for their wind farms to be built.

:11:18.:11:23.

Racebank's decision has also disappointed Yarmouth.

:11:24.:11:29.

Though it has a strong chance of being chosen as the base

:11:30.:11:32.

for future wind farms which are still at

:11:33.:11:34.

There's been more news from the energy sector today.

:11:35.:11:39.

The Government has started the process for approving

:11:40.:11:41.

a Chinese nuclear reactor at Bradwell in Essex.

:11:42.:11:46.

The Chinese want to build this reactor based on their own design.

:11:47.:11:52.

It would be close to the old Bridewell station. To do this they

:11:53.:11:57.

need the approval of UK regulators which is the process which kicked

:11:58.:12:03.

off today, which typically takes four years, to establish the design

:12:04.:12:07.

is safe and secure. If the UK regulators were to approve

:12:08.:12:13.

this Chinese design, then it would be the first foothold of Chinese

:12:14.:12:17.

nuclear technology in a major western economy, a very important

:12:18.:12:18.

issue. Cabbies in Southend say drivers

:12:19.:12:20.

stripped of their licences because they broke the law are back

:12:21.:12:22.

on the streets. The resort's taxi drivers'

:12:23.:12:24.

association claim the drivers are being used by the phone-app service

:12:25.:12:26.

Uber. Mark Jennings is chairman of the

:12:27.:12:39.

taxi drivers' association here, he said members were angry when another

:12:40.:12:42.

to drivers who committed motoring offences and banned from operating

:12:43.:12:46.

by the council was spotted back on the streets picking up fares.

:12:47.:12:52.

For this to happen, you can imagine the level of frustration and anger

:12:53.:12:55.

not just by the drivers but by residents, customers, people wonder

:12:56.:13:03.

how this has happened. Drivers need a private hire vehicle

:13:04.:13:07.

licence issued by the local authority.

:13:08.:13:10.

The band drivers got around it by applying for another license from

:13:11.:13:14.

Transport for London. They are now driving for Uber even

:13:15.:13:19.

though the company has no devices to operate in Southend. Southend

:13:20.:13:23.

Council told me how unhappy they are with the situation.

:13:24.:13:29.

Two individuals who we know about have had their licences revoked in

:13:30.:13:33.

Southend and have been licensed by TfL and are working for Uber.

:13:34.:13:38.

What do you think about that? It is a scandal of epidemic

:13:39.:13:43.

proportions, it cannot be right back one licensing authority finds them

:13:44.:13:49.

not fit to hold a licence, yet TfL have seen fit to give them a

:13:50.:13:52.

license. TfL told us these were serious

:13:53.:13:56.

issues which were under investigation. A spokesperson for

:13:57.:14:01.

Uber said they would welcome more transparent data sharing between

:14:02.:14:02.

licensing authorities. What they are doing, there is no

:14:03.:14:15.

point having a local licensing you might as well go to the cheapest

:14:16.:14:19.

area then drive you like. The cabbies here say they are

:14:20.:14:24.

worried the fact drivers previously banned are now back in the resort

:14:25.:14:28.

could put passengers in danger and are calling on the London Mayor to

:14:29.:14:29.

take action. You're watching Look East,

:14:30.:14:37.

with Stewart and me. Stay with us for action

:14:38.:14:40.

from last night's Cup tie Alex will tell us about

:14:41.:14:42.

a freezing end to the week. Local people make sure a war veteran

:14:43.:14:46.

gets a fitting sendoff. The Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates

:14:47.:14:57.

is giving $9 million to a medical company in Cambridge which is trying

:14:58.:15:01.

to find cures for The grant is coming from the Bill

:15:02.:15:04.

and Melinda Gates Foundation. The cash is going to a Cambridge lab

:15:05.:15:11.

called Kymab which is researching vaccines for diseases such

:15:12.:15:14.

as HIV and malaria. The Gates' involvement will ensure

:15:15.:15:16.

that any treatments are shared among Scientists working in this Cambridge

:15:17.:15:18.

laboratory are taking the first steps to create vaccines that

:15:19.:15:28.

could prevent some of the world's Work is expensive and can take years

:15:29.:15:31.

which is why bosses at Kymab are overwhelmed after being awarded

:15:32.:15:35.

$9 million by Bill I think it is very special

:15:36.:15:37.

because the foundation doesn't It wants to know it is going to get

:15:38.:15:50.

high-quality science. So it is an indictment

:15:51.:15:53.

how good the quality And how what we do at Kymab can

:15:54.:15:55.

really contribute to the mission of the Bill and Melinda Gates

:15:56.:16:02.

Foundation. The company has developed

:16:03.:16:04.

its own way of producing and testing antibodies,

:16:05.:16:06.

the proteins that help ward off infections, by creating

:16:07.:16:08.

genetically-engineered mice. The mice mimic the production

:16:09.:16:10.

of antibodies in humans which helps Vaccine that could cure

:16:11.:16:12.

whooping cough normally It's now being seen

:16:13.:16:15.

in adults and experts say that is because current

:16:16.:16:23.

cures aren't working. We think that is because the vaccine

:16:24.:16:26.

received as a child is waning. What we are trying to do is generate

:16:27.:16:29.

some antibodies that can be given as a therapy,

:16:30.:16:32.

but also as a way of looking at vaccine design against the bacteria

:16:33.:16:35.

that causes whooping cough. There is a certain cachet and allure

:16:36.:16:46.

about attracting big-dollar The billionaire philanthropist is

:16:47.:16:49.

widely considered to be the world's Money from the Microsoft founder has

:16:50.:16:55.

enabled Kymab to grow rapidly. An initial $20 million investment

:16:56.:17:02.

has seen the company grow from a handful

:17:03.:17:05.

of scientists to more than 120 employees using state-of-the-art

:17:06.:17:07.

lab equipment. Researchers here say that money

:17:08.:17:10.

will enable them to be the first to discover vaccines,

:17:11.:17:13.

and be the best. Mousumi Bakshi, BBC

:17:14.:17:15.

Look East, Cambridge. Let's get the thoughts

:17:16.:17:26.

of Martyn Postle who runs a biotech This deal is about philanthropy but

:17:27.:17:40.

also business because the company will be able to commercialise those

:17:41.:17:45.

axioms in developed countries? That is true. It doesn't matter how

:17:46.:17:50.

philanthropic the founder is, the people who invest are generally not

:17:51.:17:53.

philanthropic but financial investors.

:17:54.:17:59.

All investment in our biotech sector is to be welcomed. How worried are

:18:00.:18:04.

cos it might be harder to attract because of Brexit?

:18:05.:18:08.

For companies like this, at least in the medium term, it probably won't

:18:09.:18:12.

have any affect. Cambridge is still the Centre for European biotech and

:18:13.:18:17.

still very successful in attracting overseas investment. But there are

:18:18.:18:23.

risks, probably the most is the retention of scientists, about 40%

:18:24.:18:28.

of the science base in Cambridge are non-UK nationals, not all from the

:18:29.:18:33.

EU. I have heard stories about difficulties in attracting

:18:34.:18:37.

scientists from overseas to work in Cambridge because of the uncertainty

:18:38.:18:40.

as to whether their spouse will be able to get a job.

:18:41.:18:45.

On the other side of the coin, what about the weakness of the pound? Is

:18:46.:18:51.

that having any effect on the sector?

:18:52.:18:54.

It is, it is good news for me, the service companies like consultancies

:18:55.:18:59.

and contract research, we find we are even more connected than before.

:19:00.:19:04.

Good news for the service sector. Like so many industries we hear

:19:05.:19:10.

about post Brexit, you are suffering from the Institute of not knowing

:19:11.:19:14.

when and what is going to happen. What would help the sector, what

:19:15.:19:18.

would you like to hear from the Government?

:19:19.:19:23.

First, exactly what the Government position will be in terms of

:19:24.:19:27.

overseas scientists not having to jump through hoops to get visas.

:19:28.:19:36.

Secondly, when it comes to start up companies, the spin offs from

:19:37.:19:39.

university, who until now have relied on investment from the EU

:19:40.:19:43.

investment fund, how exactly the Government will make up the money

:19:44.:19:46.

they can no longer access. And our two teams left in the FA

:19:47.:19:48.

Cup this year now know Norwich will be at home

:19:49.:19:53.

to Arsenal if they can beat Ipswich will be at home to Brighton

:19:54.:19:57.

if they can beat Lincoln. Last night, Cambridge

:19:58.:20:01.

United threatened But ultimately the League Two

:20:02.:20:02.

side came up just short. For fans of Cambridge United, a game

:20:03.:20:05.

they would not miss for the world. For some top clubs, the FA Cup has

:20:06.:20:21.

lost a little of its magic. But at this level, it

:20:22.:20:28.

still means everything. Fingers crossed, we have

:20:29.:20:31.

good league form. Hold to half-time, get ten minutes

:20:32.:20:33.

then, bang, start again. League Two side to knock out

:20:34.:20:40.

the Championship side? Leeds made eight changes

:20:41.:20:42.

to their starting line-up, Possibly not if the first half

:20:43.:20:50.

was anything to go by. Cambridge United looked more

:20:51.:20:54.

determined, in truth, they dominated and thoroughly

:20:55.:20:55.

deserved to go in front. A goal neither nor

:20:56.:21:02.

the fans will ever forget. But if the first period

:21:03.:21:09.

was one-sided so was the second. They drew level and the winning goal

:21:10.:21:12.

followed shortly after. A rousing Cup tie for half

:21:13.:21:20.

the game, it looked Leeds showed their Championship

:21:21.:21:22.

class in the second half The first 20, 30 minutes it was all

:21:23.:21:28.

Cambridge, it was brilliant. We did well for ages and then

:21:29.:21:34.

there were lots of gaps. Two years ago, Cambridge made more
