Alarm at the decision to reveal the identity

:00:00.:00:07.

of anonymous whistle blowers, who gave evidence

:00:08.:00:09.

They were given guarantees back in 2014 about how

:00:10.:00:13.

The witnesses say they're angered by the decision

:00:14.:00:33.

of the Department for Education, and are appealing against it.

:00:34.:00:35.

The family of a 55-year-old man from Kidderminster,

:00:36.:00:38.

who's been missing for a month, appeal for help to find him.

:00:39.:00:41.

Steve, if you're out there, we love you.

:00:42.:00:43.

There's nothing we can't cope with, just come back to us.

Singing the praises of Kinver Edge - 100 years after it was donated

:00:47.:00:52.

I'm at home with blind Dave Heeley - he may be sitting down for once -

:00:53.:00:58.

but just wait until you hear what his next incredible

:00:59.:01:01.

And this is the sort of scene you'll be waking up to tomorrow morning.

:01:02.:01:08.

After a relatively mild day ,brace yourselves for a drastic drop

:01:09.:01:10.

Whistle-blowers who gave evidence to an inquiry

:01:11.:01:26.

into the "Trojan Horse" scandal, involving Birmingham schools,

:01:27.:01:28.

after a decision to have their identities revealed.

:01:29.:01:34.

Five teachers accused of being part of a plot to impose an

:01:35.:01:37.

Islamic agenda at non-faith schools, are facing professional tribunals.

:01:38.:01:42.

Their lawyers say they need to be able to question the individuals

:01:43.:01:44.

Our Special Correspondent Peter Wilson has the details.

:01:45.:01:50.

The so called Trojan Horse Saga has never been out of the headlines

:01:51.:01:53.

since it first emerged three years ago.

:01:54.:01:57.

There have been death threats against a Birmingham headteacher,

:01:58.:02:00.

of aggressive Islamist influence behind the school gates.

:02:01.:02:07.

Now today recriminations over the news that the personal details

:02:08.:02:10.

of witnesses who gave evidence anonymously to the Trojan inquiry

:02:11.:02:14.

The witnesses came forward under strict conditions of anonymity and

:02:15.:02:29.

there were guarantees back in 2014 about how their evidence would be

:02:30.:02:34.

used. Those people have now been betrayed and this has implications

:02:35.:02:40.

in whistle-blowing cases past, present and future.

:02:41.:02:45.

Peter Clarke, a former head of counter terrorism carried

:02:46.:02:47.

He says he's appalled at the decision to waive anonymity.

:02:48.:02:50.

Five teachers are facing a professional tribunal

:02:51.:02:52.

The whistle-blowers have been sent letters

:02:53.:02:57.

informing them "that the transcript of your evidence as provided

:02:58.:02:59.

in the Peter Clarke investigation

:03:00.:03:02.

will be disclosed to the respondent teachers."

:03:03.:03:08.

We've spoken to one of the anonymous witnesses and one of the teachers

:03:09.:03:14.

involved in this case, the witness says they fear if their identity is

:03:15.:03:20.

widely published, both they and their family will be targeted by

:03:21.:03:24.

extremists. The teacher told me that the whole Trojan Horse saga was

:03:25.:03:31.

based on an anonymous letter which was likely to have been forged and

:03:32.:03:35.

he claims that the anonymous witnesses were able to say whatever

:03:36.:03:39.

they wanted without anything being corroborated. The association

:03:40.:03:50.

representing nine of the anonymous witnesses acted quickly yesterday to

:03:51.:03:52.

prevent their details being released. We would hope that the

:03:53.:03:57.

assurances Peter Clarke gave would be maintained. We are three years on

:03:58.:04:04.

and it seems like some of those assurances are evaporating quickly

:04:05.:04:10.

and we would ensure that the enquiry is able to account for this.

:04:11.:04:16.

The department of education tonight said that the tribunal hearings

:04:17.:04:19.

into the five teachers cases must be fair and correct -

:04:25.:04:27.

Fears are growing for a Worcestershire man

:04:28.:04:29.

The family of 55-year-old Stephen Woolley

:04:30.:04:34.

have mounted their own searches and appealed online

:04:35.:04:36.

but there's been no sighting of Stephen since early December.

:04:37.:04:42.

Carol Woolley tries to keep busy, but it's hard.

:04:43.:04:48.

Her husband Stephen disappeared 28 days ago -

:04:49.:04:51.

It's just the uncertainty, physically feeling sick and tired

:04:52.:05:02.

not knowing what the day is going to bring, hoping today is the day that

:05:03.:05:09.

we get some news. Whether it be good or bad, at least we would know what

:05:10.:05:11.

we are dealing with. Stephen left

:05:12.:05:14.

the family home in Kidderminster Half an hour later

:05:15.:05:18.

he was at Holt Fleet on the River Severn,

:05:19.:05:21.

north of Worcester, He's a keen walker and his family's

:05:22.:05:23.

organised search parties in the area There is concern though

:05:24.:05:28.

about his state of mind. Last year was a hard one for the

:05:29.:05:37.

family and Stephen who has suffered depression in the past was suffering

:05:38.:05:44.

difficulty trying to cope with the death of his sister. My heart of

:05:45.:05:53.

hearts says that he's not going to come back. I hope he is but the days

:05:54.:05:55.

go on, I feel the less likely it is. Stephen joined Kidderminster

you. There is nothing we can't cope with. We just want to hear from you

:06:27.:06:28.

and we want you home. Police have been

:06:29.:06:31.

out on the river in boats but say without a positive sighting

:06:32.:06:33.

there's little more they can do. For the family the search goes on -

:06:34.:06:36.

and so too the waiting. A jury has heard how a 20-year-old

:06:37.:06:40.

Warwickshire woman became the victim by a former boyfriend

:06:41.:06:43.

and his partner. at a flat in

:06:44.:06:46.

Stratford Upon Avon last year. Jack Williams and

:06:47.:06:50.

Kayleigh Woods deny her murder. Joan Cummins

:06:51.:06:53.

has been in court today. Joan, what have you heard

:06:54.:06:55.

about Bethany today? We were told that Bethany was a

:06:56.:07:09.

troubled girl. She'd dropped out of college, she used to self harm but

:07:10.:07:15.

she was very much loved by her extended family in nearby Bedford on

:07:16.:07:20.

Avon. The jury were told she'd had a very brief relationship with Jack

:07:21.:07:25.

Williams but with tragic consequences, she'd then introduced

:07:26.:07:31.

him to her transgender friend Kaylee Woods with whom she was hoping to

:07:32.:07:37.

have a baby. The prosecution said that the relation between all three

:07:38.:07:42.

was corrugated and often volatile. Did we learn more about the specific

:07:43.:07:46.

circumstances leading up to her death? We were told that Kayleigh

:07:47.:07:58.

made a call to a police last year saying that Bethany had committed

:07:59.:08:04.

suicide however, a postmortem revealed that she'd been bound,

:08:05.:08:10.

gagged and her jugular vein had been severed. The prosecution said that

:08:11.:08:23.

this had been a killing motivated by perverted pleasure. He said that the

:08:24.:08:33.

evidence needed to be considered calmly. The trial is expected to

:08:34.:08:35.

last four weeks. A loaded gun has been found hidden

:08:36.:08:38.

in a toilet roll holder Police removed the weapon

:08:39.:08:41.

after it was discovered in the lavatories at House of Fraser

:08:42.:08:44.

on Monday evening. The gun has been made safe

:08:45.:08:47.

and is being forensically examined. Part of West Bromwich High Street

:08:48.:08:52.

is still closed this evening after a major fire broke out

:08:53.:08:55.

in a Caribbean restaurant. Firefighters used an hydraulic

:08:56.:08:59.

platform to tackle the blaze Flats above the restaurant

:09:00.:09:02.

were evacuated. Officers are continuing to

:09:03.:09:06.

investigate the cause of the fire. It has been a very severe fire

:09:07.:09:08.

affecting the whole of the ground floor and up into the flat above

:09:09.:09:11.

and, also, the structure is unstable now so it's quite dangerous

:09:12.:09:14.

for people to go inside, so we're getting structural advice to make

:09:15.:09:18.

sure we can do that safely. the world's most punctual airport

:09:19.:09:21.

in 2016 by air travel

:09:22.:09:28.

intelligence company OAG. It found that more than 90%

:09:29.:09:32.

of flights from the airport arrived Over the past ten years

:09:33.:09:35.

Birmingham has invested ?350m to improve the airport

:09:36.:09:42.

infrastructure and is working on a further one million pound

development project to improve A trauma surgeon at the Queen

:09:45.:09:46.

Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham is one of the founders

:09:47.:09:53.

of CitizenAID, a new scheme designed

:09:54.:09:56.

to offer advice and training in case they're caught up

:09:57.:09:59.

in a terrorist attack. Professor Sir Keith Porter

:10:00.:10:03.

says learning first aid skills, like how to deal

:10:04.:10:05.

with severe bleeding could save lives

:10:06.:10:07.

before the paramedics arrive. Sir Keith has spent the last few

:10:08.:10:11.

years dealing with soldiers who've suffered terrible and traumatic

:10:12.:10:14.

injuries in Afghanistan and Iraq and joins me now

:10:15.:10:19.

in the studio, Sir Keith - We've created this simple system of

:10:20.:10:34.

actions the public can perform should they be caught up in a

:10:35.:10:37.

shooting, a bomb or similar incident. They can administer care

:10:38.:10:45.

at the same time as remaining safe. Is it overly dramatic to prepare the

:10:46.:10:50.

public for terror attacks? You only have to look at events of the last

:10:51.:10:55.

few months that we are fortunate that the UK has not been involved. A

:10:56.:11:02.

senior commissioner of the Metropolitan Police has said it is

:11:03.:11:07.

not if but when. We are not alarming the public. When an incident

:11:08.:11:12.

happens, people don't know what to do. This provides them with a system

:11:13.:11:18.

so then they can go through a system of examination and treatment. What

:11:19.:11:22.

kind of difference could this training make? We know from military

:11:23.:11:29.

training, it's been responsible for saving many lives. And you've gained

:11:30.:11:35.

the experience in this area from the work you have done at the Queen

:11:36.:11:41.

Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham. That's correct. Myself and partners

:11:42.:11:46.

in the military know that this is an effective way. The most important

:11:47.:11:50.

thing is controlling major external bleeding early on. In the first

:11:51.:11:59.

instance, the emergency services aren't immediately going to be

:12:00.:12:02.

present in a terrorist attack so we are riding on the public to help.

:12:03.:12:06.

I'm absolutely confident that this will help people.

:12:07.:12:09.

If you hit the sales in the past week,

:12:10.:12:12.

then you probably got caught up in a big crowd.

:12:13.:12:14.

And it's pretty frustrating when you end up separated

:12:15.:12:16.

But what's the best way to find them again?

:12:17.:12:20.

Well scientists at the University of Warwick have the answers.

:12:21.:12:26.

Here's Science Correspondent David Gregory-Kumar with the results.

:12:27.:12:28.

First we need to build somewhere to test this theory about crowds.

:12:29.:12:34.

This German market in Birmingham will do nicely.

:12:35.:12:40.

The big question is if A goes off to get beers

:12:41.:12:53.

what's the best way for B to find him in the crowds?

:12:54.:12:57.

To gain a good idea of which Chatterjee is best, I did it 100,000

:12:58.:13:04.

times. -- which strategy. Well, at the University

:13:05.:13:09.

of Warwick this statistician The best way to find them is to

:13:10.:13:19.

actively seek them out and not wait around.

:13:20.:13:22.

Nathan has run 100,000 simulations with lost virtual people

:13:23.:13:24.

trying to find one another in a crowd.

:13:25.:13:26.

So if the best method is for A and B to actively search for the other.

:13:27.:13:30.

How much time could this method save you vesus searches where one

:13:31.:13:33.

It depends on the size of the venue. At larger venues, it can be an extra

:13:34.:13:47.

50% of the time, maybe at a weekend long festival that might be too much

:13:48.:13:49.

time to spend. So if you lose your friends

:13:50.:13:54.

in a crowd start searching You could find each other

:13:55.:13:57.

in half the time it could take if one of you

:13:58.:14:01.

stands still and waits. David Gregory-Kumar

one of the Midlands most popular countryside spots

:14:49.:14:51.

was donated to the National Trust. Kinver Edge on the Staffordshire

:14:52.:14:55.

and Worcestershire border was given to the Trust

:14:56.:14:57.

during the First World War. Now a songwriter who pens hits

:14:58.:15:03.

for stars, including Cliff Richard and Nicole Kidman's husband -

:15:04.:15:06.

singer Keith Urban, has written

:15:07.:15:08.

a tune about Kinver Edge - recalling his happy childhood

:15:09.:15:10.

memories. With neverending views, Kinver Edge

:15:11.:15:11.

in South Staffordshire has been a place to escape and

:15:12.:15:18.

enjoy for generations of families. The National Trust has been looking

:15:19.:15:29.

after this place for one injured years now and a whole series of

:15:30.:15:35.

events are planned to celebrate the centenary. -- for 100 years.

From his home studio on the outskirts of Kinver village

:15:43.:15:44.

famous songwriter Chris Eaton has written On Kinver Edge -

:15:45.:15:47.

Better known for writing the Christmas number one

Saviour's Day and a host of hits for the likes of Cliff Richard,

:15:53.:15:55.

Chris divides his time between America and Kinver -

:15:56.:15:57.

I've got fantastic memories of walking on the edge, it's always

:15:58.:16:10.

meant a lot to me to have a sense of peace and find myself again, if you

:16:11.:16:18.

like. It's a beautiful song. It paints a picture of the gift, really

:16:19.:16:22.

that we've been given with Kinver Edge.

:16:23.:16:26.

Carved into the sandstone, the rock houses

:16:27.:16:28.

on Kinver Edge were occupied until the 1950s.

:16:29.:16:33.

Outside Kidderminster, a woman and four children live in a cave...

:16:34.:16:37.

Today the rock houses are a museum attraction,

:16:38.:16:39.

but in days gone by the people living here would make the most

of tram loads of tourists who'd escaped the city smog for fresh air.

:16:43.:16:50.

They were very entrepreneurial and they used to sell them tea, cake and

The gift was from her wealthy grandfather Oliver Lee -

The handover referred to the fact that this was going to be a dream

and in football transfer news Aston Villa have sold the striker

:17:33.:17:38.

Rudy Gestede to Middlesbrough. The Premier League club

:17:39.:17:41.

have paid around ?6m for the forward who scored ten goals

:17:42.:17:44.

in 55 games for Villa. His replacement at Villa Park

:17:45.:17:48.

could be another Boro striker Jordan Rhodes, who's been linked

:17:49.:17:52.

with a move to the Midlands. Elsewhere, Stoke City have completed

:17:53.:17:57.

the signing of the goalkeeper Lee Grant from Derby today

:17:58.:18:00.

for just over a million pounds. But the Manager Mark Hughes says

:18:01.:18:03.

striker Peter Crouch will not be

:18:04.:18:06.

sold in the January transfer window. Perhaps not such a surprise

:18:07.:18:09.

as the former England striker helped the Potters beat Watford last night

:18:10.:18:12.

with his second goal in two games. On a cold night in the Potteries

:18:13.:18:15.

the Stoke City fans were looking for a performance

:18:16.:18:20.

to warm their bones and hearts. Five matches without a win, ten

:18:21.:18:24.

goals conceded in the last three, above the relegation

:18:25.:18:28.

zone before kick off. And for a while this looked

:18:29.:18:31.

like another frustrating night Then with virtually the final kick

:18:32.:18:34.

of the first half, Ryan Shawcross scoring

:18:35.:18:38.

his first goal for the club in two years to lift

:18:39.:18:42.

the spirits around the stadium. Charlie Adam had created that goal

:18:43.:18:46.

and he was also the provider Peter Crouch had scored his first

:18:47.:18:49.

league goal of the season at Chelsea in their New Year's Eve defeat

:18:50.:18:54.

but this time his intervention would confirm a vital three points

and Crouch's continued worth His attributes and ability to affect

games hasn't changed. He's getting on in years, he's probably coming

:19:09.:19:14.

towards the end of his career, he knows that. I haven't seen any

:19:15.:19:19.

diminishing of his qualities at all. No doubt, he'd be coveted by other

:19:20.:19:25.

teams who can see the qualities he as but he is very valued here so he

:19:26.:19:26.

won't be going anywhere. Jonathan Walters

:19:27.:19:29.

did have a late chance to make it three but this was a satisfying

:19:30.:19:31.

enough night for Stoke and their fans as they moved up to eleventh

in the Premier League table. Now, he's spent a lifetime dedicated

:19:35.:19:37.

to phenomenal fundraising feats, and Blind Dave Heeley is starting

:19:38.:19:41.

2017 with yet another challenge. While many of us are thinking

:19:42.:19:43.

about getting fit - Dave is preparing to take things up

:19:44.:19:46.

a notch by taking He's starting in Edinburgh

:19:47.:19:48.

on Saturday, he'll take part in the Great Birmingham Run

:19:49.:19:53.

in October before finishing with the final race in Addis Ababa

:19:54.:19:56.

in Ethopia in November. Laura May McMullan is with him this

:19:57.:20:00.

evening, so Laura he got a big reception at West Brom on Saturday,

:20:01.:20:04.

and it's going to be quite a year! Yes. What a year this is going to be

:20:05.:20:19.

for Dave. I have to say, this is the first time I've actually seen you

:20:20.:20:24.

sitting down. Usually, you are literally rolling off somewhere. In

fact, he's run an incredible 58,000 miles for charity. Last year, he

:20:33.:20:41.

took part in the escape from outer Best Alcatraz triathlon in San

:20:42.:20:44.

Francisco. The year before, he was running across the Sahara desert and

:20:45.:20:55.

we can't forget his race in seven days across seven continents. How is

:20:56.:21:01.

this going to compere? It's going to be fantastic. It's going to keep us

:21:02.:21:06.

focused for the year. We kick off in Edinburgh on Saturday and we finish

:21:07.:21:11.

in the Ethiopian. It's a combination of runs from five K all the way to

:21:12.:21:19.

fun. There are 25 races in the series and the first is the

:21:20.:21:25.

international Birmingham marathon in October. We will run a marathon in

:21:26.:21:30.

the morning and a half marathon in the afternoon. Along with some

:21:31.:21:34.

Not the interior of an office - but a car.

:22:28.:22:34.

it's a cadillac which was once owned by the President-elect Donald Trump.

It was actually made for Donald Trump. It was made for him. There

fancy from the bottles in the boot. The car was 30 years old and a wreck

:24:02.:24:06.

when it was bored. We have got it together over the last nine years.

:24:07.:24:12.

It wasn't bought for any other reason than he just liked the

:24:13.:24:16.

Cadillac. It has more sentimental value to him than anything else.

:25:12.:25:14.

weather, you'd better look away now. Shefali is here with news

:25:15.:25:19.

of freezing temperatures. Today we had varying degrees of

:25:20.:25:32.

cloud but the general trend was to clearing skies. That is a sign of

:25:33.:25:36.

things to come. Much colder conditions to come in contrast with

:25:37.:25:47.

today's very mild conditions. At Gloucester, 10 Celsius recorded.

This is the current situation. High pressure in charge for to light and

temperatures plummet to about minus five Celsius across the south-west

:26:36.:26:41.

of the region. In the Laurel areas, with a moderate breeze, you could

:26:42.:26:52.

get down to minus eight Celsius. Very little moisture so there should

:26:53.:27:00.

be mainly clear skies so we could see some icy stretches. Tomorrow

:27:01.:27:06.

morning, we start on a frosty note. It's going to be dry and sunny.

:27:07.:27:12.

Frost gradually starting to ease and disappear. Temperatures. All to

2-3 C. Frost forming very quickly. It's not going to be called. A front
