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

:00:00.:00:00.

Fears over Brexit, concerns from one leading supporter

:00:00.:00:08.

The rise of sleeping tuberculosis, doctors in Peterborough say they're

:00:09.:00:12.

And there's a warning for ice for tonight and tomorrow morning.

:00:13.:00:17.

I'll tell you more in the forecast coming up.

:00:18.:00:32.

A leading supporter of the Leave campaign in last year's EU

:00:33.:00:36.

referendum has told Look East he's worried Brexit may never happen.

:00:37.:00:40.

Peter Bone, the MP for Wellingborough, says members

:00:41.:00:44.

of the establishment are hoping to indefinitely delay the process

:00:45.:00:49.

and he'll be pushing the Prime Minister to proceed

:00:50.:00:53.

with the plans as quickly as possible.

:00:54.:00:58.

A long-standing Eurosceptic, Peter Bone played a leading

:00:59.:01:00.

His grassroots Out movement, with its focus on door-to-door

:01:01.:01:03.

campaigning, brought together politicians from across

:01:04.:01:06.

But more than six months on, he believes that parts

:01:07.:01:10.

of the civil service, the media and even some

:01:11.:01:12.

of his own colleagues are trying to scupper Brexit.

:01:13.:01:16.

We're up against the establishment, we know there are certain people

:01:17.:01:20.

in Parliament who have made it clear that they don't accept the result

:01:21.:01:23.

The longer before the exit from the EU, there's more chance

:01:24.:01:28.

of some event occurring which would stop it or put it off.

:01:29.:01:31.

You sound as if you're still worried that this may never happen.

:01:32.:01:34.

He says if anyone can force through Brexit,

:01:35.:01:41.

She has said she wants Article 50, which will start the process,

:01:42.:01:48.

But many MPs say they may hold up the process,

:01:49.:01:54.

like the Labour MP for Cambridge, Daniel Zeichner, and

:01:55.:01:56.

We've got to respect and accept the judgment of the British people,

:01:57.:02:02.

and I think there are very many people, increasing numbers

:02:03.:02:08.

of people, who recognise the need for us to negotiate a deal

:02:09.:02:11.

which protects our economic interests.

:02:12.:02:12.

Supporters of the Leave campaign point to comments like that

:02:13.:02:15.

and today's row over the resignation of our ambassador in Brussels

:02:16.:02:19.

as proof of an establishment campaign to stop Brexit.

:02:20.:02:22.

Something that Mr Bone is determined to resist.

:02:23.:02:29.

A man has been arrested after two people died in an apparent hit

:02:30.:02:32.

It happened between Yaxley and Farcet near Peterborough just

:02:33.:02:39.

Officers searching for the driver of a BMW arrested a man

:02:40.:02:43.

in Chelmsford later that night on suspicion of causing death

:02:44.:02:46.

by dangerous driving and actual bodily harm.

:02:47.:02:48.

The two men who died have not yet been named.

:02:49.:02:54.

Within the next couple of hours the government is expected

:02:55.:02:59.

to announce an extension to restrictions on our poultry

:03:00.:03:01.

producers following outbreaks of bird flu.

:03:02.:03:06.

The first confirmed case in the UK was in Lincolnshire

:03:07.:03:09.

Yesterday H5N8 was found in chickens and ducks in Wales.

:03:10.:03:13.

Farmers here say the measures are necessary to stop

:03:14.:03:15.

Our advice has been to extend it for a period of time, we have got farms

:03:16.:03:28.

across the whole of East Anglia, there is a huge amount of migration,

:03:29.:03:33.

coming into this part of the world. And it is a real worry.

:03:34.:03:36.

Doctors in Peterborough say they're seeing a growing number of patients

:03:37.:03:39.

Unlike active tuberculosis, there are no symptoms,

:03:40.:03:42.

But health bosses are keen to ensure the bug doesn't

:03:43.:03:46.

A screening programme rolled out last May has seen the highest number

:03:47.:03:51.

of samples being processed in the UK.

:03:52.:03:55.

It's an airborne infection that affects the lungs.

:03:56.:03:58.

Tuberculosis was a big killer in this country

:03:59.:04:01.

Fast forward to the 21st century, and so-called sleeping tuberculosis

:04:02.:04:10.

As long as we pick it up early, it shouldn't cause

:04:11.:04:14.

In this clinic in Peterborough, patients deemed to be at risk

:04:15.:04:18.

from the latent infection are being invited in for screening.

:04:19.:04:21.

There is a lot of different groups coming to Peterborough,

:04:22.:04:23.

so obviously, as their doctors, we really want to protect them

:04:24.:04:26.

and we also want to protect our other patients as well.

:04:27.:04:28.

So I think finding a disease like latent TB early, treating it,

:04:29.:04:31.

helps protect both the patients but also the rest of

:04:32.:04:34.

The vaccine for TB was phased out a decade ago, but rising levels

:04:35.:04:38.

of migration from high-risk countries has seen health bosses

:04:39.:04:41.

in Cambridgeshire introduce a pilot screening programme.

:04:42.:04:43.

We've got about 12 practices involved across Peterborough,

:04:44.:04:47.

and the pilot has been running since May, and we've had a fantastic

:04:48.:04:50.

They have screened over 250 people, and we've now got 30 people

:04:51.:04:55.

in treatment for the latent form of the disease that

:04:56.:04:58.

otherwise wouldn't have known that they had it.

:04:59.:05:02.

One of 60 programmes in the country, it's sent in the highest

:05:03.:05:05.

Data from the region's clinical commissioning groups show that

:05:06.:05:11.

between 2013 and 2015, there were on average 26 cases of TB

:05:12.:05:15.

detected in Milton Keynes, 42 across Northamptonshire,

:05:16.:05:20.

63 in Luton, and 85 in Cambridgeshire, the highest

:05:21.:05:24.

It's estimated that a third of the world's population

:05:25.:05:29.

is infected with latent TB, but one in ten goes

:05:30.:05:33.

A century ago, TB was a big problem in this country,

:05:34.:05:39.

but improved housing and sanitation has seen a stark drop in figures.

:05:40.:05:43.

Scientists in this Cambridge laboratory have sequenced the TB

:05:44.:05:52.

genome, looking at drug resistant bugs, in order to find drug

:05:53.:05:55.

In the United Kingdom, the rates of tuberculous have

:05:56.:05:58.

declined over the last few years, and I think last year

:05:59.:06:02.

there were about 6000 cases which was down from about 8000

:06:03.:06:05.

But tuberculosis has never disappeared from the UK

:06:06.:06:08.

and is unlikely to do so in the foreseeable future.

:06:09.:06:10.

While latent TB is not contagious, doctors are urging people who've

:06:11.:06:13.

settled in this country in the past five years to be tested in order

:06:14.:06:16.

to help eradicate this once widespread illness.

:06:17.:06:26.

Tonight on Look East we'll be at Africa Alive as it's the time

:06:27.:06:31.

of year zoo keepers count all the animals they look after.

:06:32.:06:35.

The annual count is also being done at Banham Zoo.

:06:36.:06:38.

The information is used to ensure the animals are being looked

:06:39.:06:40.

after properly and provide valuable data to the coordinators of managed

:06:41.:06:43.

We have to make sure everybody is present and correct and then

:06:44.:06:47.

all that information is logged on our record-keeping system,

:06:48.:06:49.

and that information is shared between other collections

:06:50.:06:52.

So our captive populations are all recorded and in check.

:06:53.:06:59.

Let's get a look at the weather now, Georgina Burnett

:07:00.:07:01.

We are looking at the bit of sunshine this afternoon after a grey

:07:02.:07:14.

start of the day, some of us enjoying that already, this was a

:07:15.:07:20.

gloomy picture taken this morning in Southend. A really beautiful scene.

:07:21.:07:26.

The cloud is trying to steal away, there are a few showers left, and

:07:27.:07:33.

even spilling slightly in Essex. Temperatures getting up to five or 6

:07:34.:07:41.

degrees. Still very chilly. Tonight it is turning icy so some of the

:07:42.:07:44.

showers continuing, and with low temperatures there is potential for

:07:45.:07:55.

icy conditions. There is an ice warning until 10am. In some parts of

:07:56.:08:00.

the region. You will need to take care everywhere, because we are

:08:01.:08:02.

seeing temperatures plummet below freezing. Continuing over Norfolk,

:08:03.:08:10.

Suffolk and Essex, elsewhere and marginally dry night, widespread

:08:11.:08:13.

frost, some fog patches and freezing fog. Where the rain is, it is going

:08:14.:08:21.

to be slightly milder. An icy start to the day for many of us, certainly

:08:22.:08:27.

frosty, so if you're going to be travelling, and you want to be

:08:28.:08:31.

leading a little bit earlier, but a beautiful day of sunshine if you are

:08:32.:08:34.

wrapped up warm. Although there is plenty of sunshine around tomorrow,

:08:35.:08:40.

temperatures are at four or 5 degrees. In some spots you could not

:08:41.:08:51.

make it above two. I frosty start on Friday but pockets of frost, bog in

:08:52.:08:58.

places, -- there is some fog in places. The rain band will be coming

:08:59.:09:02.

through later on in the day on Friday, clearing Saturday morning.

:09:03.:09:07.

Leaving us with a largely dry weekend, cloud at times, and some

:09:08.:09:14.

sunny intervals. Some brightness expected over the weekend. And

:09:15.:09:17.

milder temperatures. We'll be back with Look East

:09:18.:09:20.

on BBC One at 6.30pm. Panorama investigates

:09:21.:09:24.

the deadly terrorist attack

:09:25.:09:49.
