The Ken Loach film, I, Daniel Blake, set in Newcastle

:00:09.:00:12.

and filmed on Tyneside, has taken one of the top

:00:13.:00:14.

awards at tonight's BAFTA ceremony in London.

:00:15.:00:18.

It was named the Outstanding British Film.

:00:19.:00:20.

Our arts reporter Sharuna Sagar is in the capital and has

:00:21.:00:23.

The 70th British Academy Film Awards has drawn to a close and it's

:00:24.:00:31.

been a wonderful night, particularly for the film that has

:00:32.:00:36.

put Newcastle and its people back on the cinematic map.

:00:37.:00:39.

Ken Loach's powerful drama won the first award of the night,

:00:40.:00:46.

Incredibly, this is the first BAFTA that Ken Loach has one for a film

:00:47.:00:56.

in his 50-year career and, earlier on, when I spoke

:00:57.:00:58.

to him on the red carpet, he didn't even expect to win.

:00:59.:01:01.

Have you perfected your reaction face, when they

:01:02.:01:04.

It won't happen, so just don't think about it.

:01:05.:01:11.

Something's going to happen tonight, Ken, I'm sure of it.

:01:12.:01:13.

It's Theresa May's face I want to see, if we do win,

:01:14.:01:16.

That'll be the face to watch, wouldn't it?

:01:17.:01:19.

Ah, to be a fly on the wall at Number 10 tonight.

:01:20.:01:23.

Meanwhile here at the Royal Albert Hall, there's a mass exodus

:01:24.:01:26.

as the winners make their way to an exclusive party

:01:27.:01:28.

and among them will be the cast and crew of I,

:01:29.:01:31.

Daniel Blake, who are sure to be partying long into the night.

:01:32.:01:40.

An underwater search has taken place after a man went missing

:01:41.:01:45.

51-year-old Andrew Roy failed to show up for work on Friday morning.

:01:46.:01:51.

Today a police search was joined by the RNLI,

:01:52.:01:54.

Mr Roy's family, who live in Cornwall, are being kept informed.

:01:55.:01:59.

The candidates competing to be Copeland's next MP have

:02:00.:02:04.

clashed over the future of the local health service.

:02:05.:02:06.

A review of services at Whitehaven's West Cumberland Hospital

:02:07.:02:09.

could see more patients, including expectant

:02:10.:02:12.

mothers, travelling to Carlisle for treatment.

:02:13.:02:15.

It's become a key issue in the forthcoming by-election

:02:16.:02:18.

as our political editor Richard Moss reports.

:02:19.:02:19.

A decision on whether to move consultant-led maternity

:02:20.:02:21.

and other services out of the West Cumberland

:02:22.:02:23.

Some place the blame for the downgrade plans

:02:24.:02:27.

NHS England has come up with a report saying it is safe

:02:28.:02:31.

to travel up to four hours in labour in order to push through

:02:32.:02:34.

the closure of the services in Whitehaven hospital.

:02:35.:02:37.

It is an appalling report, it doesn't make logical sense,

:02:38.:02:40.

But the Conservative candidate says she is taking action

:02:41.:02:46.

What I have been doing is speaking with the minister.

:02:47.:02:49.

The Health Minister Philip Dunn and what we have agreed in writing

:02:50.:02:53.

is that there will be a professional, Government-backed

:02:54.:03:00.

And also, let me be clear, that the issue here is not money.

:03:01.:03:04.

Other candidates though disagree on the solution

:03:05.:03:07.

We have heard of consultants being told not to bother replying

:03:08.:03:14.

because they are being told there won't be a job here.

:03:15.:03:16.

We're not going to get recruitment under those circumstances.

:03:17.:03:19.

Whilst the Tories are taking money out of the NHS,

:03:20.:03:23.

both nationally and locally, we're not going to get people here.

:03:24.:03:26.

In Ukip policy, we have said we will waive the tuition fees.

:03:27.:03:29.

So we get sufficient staffing for the future.

:03:30.:03:31.

If we had implement our policy a few years ago,

:03:32.:03:37.

The Green Party says the problems are down to the way

:03:38.:03:42.

the Government's running the NHS, while Independent candidates

:03:43.:03:44.

say it's time to change the way the local hospital

:03:45.:03:46.

And you can see the whole of that Sunday Politics debate,

:03:47.:03:59.

including all seven by-election candidates, on the BBC iPlayer.

:04:00.:04:03.

The region's weather forecast for the start of the new week, now,

:04:04.:04:07.

Any rain, sleet or snow starting to really fragment and just cluster

:04:08.:04:15.

over the highest of ground, around the Pennines,

:04:16.:04:19.

this is where we could still see a couple of droplets of snow

:04:20.:04:22.

This cloud prevents these temperatures dropping to low.

:04:23.:04:26.

Just a cold, windy, cloudy start to the day tomorrow.

:04:27.:04:31.

If we do factor in this easterly breeze, which is going to be quite

:04:32.:04:34.

strong, particularly on the coast and exposed hills, it's

:04:35.:04:36.

going to really take the edge off those temperatures.

:04:37.:04:38.

On paper, yes, it is slowly turning less cold but it's

:04:39.:04:41.

still going to feel better out there tomorrow.

:04:42.:04:43.

And Colin Briggs is here with news and weather updates first

:04:44.:04:46.

From the late team, I'll wish you a warm night.

:04:47.:04:49.

I'm sure most of us are glad to see the back of this weekend. It's been

:04:50.:05:15.

cold, bleak and at times wintry. It provided some beautiful weather

:05:16.:05:18.

Watchers photos, like Sheffield earlier today. I suspect some of the

:05:19.:05:22.

lying snow will be blown around by strong winds starting to develop.

:05:23.:05:28.

The odd spot of drizzle into the far north-east. The wind strengthening

:05:29.:05:35.

here. Already signs of something a little bit miles, temperatures

:05:36.:05:38.

climbing up. However it's not going to feel that warm straightaway.

:05:39.:05:44.

Because of the strength of the wind. The wind however will break up the

:05:45.:05:48.

cloud, so some sunshine into central

:05:49.:05:49.
