Hello, and welcome to Midlands Today.

:00:00.:00:00.

Concerns over the finances of a company paid to protect

:00:00.:00:11.

It sounds like somebody hasn't been watching this, and the company

:00:12.:00:16.

has got into trouble, and a lot of schools have ended up

:00:17.:00:19.

paying out of their budgets for a service they won't now get.

:00:20.:00:23.

The Big Community provides services to a third

:00:24.:00:25.

A father meets the daughter he never knew he had.

:00:26.:00:34.

And I'm so happy he wants me in his life.

:00:35.:00:40.

A lorry carrying 28 tonnes of grain crashes into a house next to a level

:00:41.:00:46.

We are live courtside as the Worcester wolves look to maintain

:00:47.:00:59.

their great form at the start of 2017.

:01:00.:01:00.

And we begin the weekend with some wintry showers,

:01:01.:01:02.

but signs of something a little brighter for next week.

:01:03.:01:05.

Some of Birmingham's most vulnerable children could be left

:01:06.:01:17.

Questions are being asked as to whether a company providing

:01:18.:01:22.

support to children may have run into financial difficulty.

:01:23.:01:27.

Around a third of the city's 300 primary schools have paid thousands

:01:28.:01:30.

Much of the money has been paid upfront for therapists

:01:31.:01:35.

The Big Community helps monitor truancy, they also support

:01:36.:01:40.

children with emotional and behavioural problems.

:01:41.:01:41.

Sarah Bishop has this exclusive report.

:01:42.:01:45.

We filmed her for a documentary about safeguarding

:01:46.:01:56.

We look at children's emotional resilience, how they cope

:01:57.:02:04.

with day-to-day life, experience they have had that has

:02:05.:02:06.

Primarily we look at how the service can assist and work with schools

:02:07.:02:11.

to break down the barriers to learning and ensure

:02:12.:02:14.

For the past seven years, the Big Community has sent social

:02:15.:02:19.

workers into dozens of Birmingham schools to do in part what the local

:02:20.:02:22.

authority used to do, to monitor children's attendance

:02:23.:02:24.

It also sends in therapists to support children, dealing

:02:25.:02:30.

with everything from divorce to domestic violence.

:02:31.:02:32.

This city centre primary school is one of around 100 in Birmingham

:02:33.:02:35.

A source has told me how practitioners from the company came

:02:36.:02:45.

in, in almost a state of shock last week.

:02:46.:02:47.

They said they had e-mails telling them the company had run

:02:48.:02:50.

into financial difficulty, and their jobs were no more.

:02:51.:02:53.

A source from the school tells us they tried to contact the company

:02:54.:02:58.

but as yet there has been no formal communication that

:02:59.:03:01.

We tried to contact Big Community but the phone number is dead,

:03:02.:03:06.

there is no sign up at its registered address

:03:07.:03:13.

and there is no one in Miss Selvey's home in North Worcestershire.

:03:14.:03:16.

Companies House records show the Big Community

:03:17.:03:18.

In August last year, it received notice of a compulsory strike-off.

:03:19.:03:27.

The Big Community would have been handling big money in addition

:03:28.:03:35.

to the thousands academies being paid in directly,

:03:36.:03:39.

Birmingham City Council confirmed in 2015 it paid in over ?140,000

:03:40.:03:44.

schools which did not have checking accounts.

:03:45.:03:48.

It has now written to schools advising them

:03:49.:03:50.

Who is going to be monitoring the children?

:03:51.:04:07.

Anything that helps towards safeguarding needs to be there.

:04:08.:04:21.

There are fears what may have happened is down

:04:22.:04:23.

to the fragmentation of public education.

:04:24.:04:24.

I have no objection to that providing it is properly

:04:25.:04:27.

monitored and supervised and there are proper

:04:28.:04:28.

It sounds like somebody hasn't been watching this and the company

:04:29.:04:32.

has got into trouble, and a lot of schools

:04:33.:04:34.

have ended up paying out for a service they won't now get.

:04:35.:04:41.

Tonight, Birmingham City Council says it will be working with schools

:04:42.:04:44.

to give support and advice, and help them recoup any money owed.

:04:45.:04:47.

Sarah Bishop, BBC Midlands Today, Birmingham.

:04:48.:04:57.

"We're so happy we've found each other."

:04:58.:04:58.

It's a moment 30 years in the making.

:04:59.:05:00.

A Staffordshire father has met the daughter he never knew he had.

:05:01.:05:03.

Fifi Giannitto managed to track down her dad John Duncan

:05:04.:05:06.

and, after a DNA test, their incredible story

:05:07.:05:08.

And it's not just genes they have in common.

:05:09.:05:12.

Incredibly they've spent years going to the same pub.

:05:13.:05:14.

Many an extraordinary story has been told in pubs.

:05:15.:05:22.

A 52-year-old psychological coach from Stone, happy married,

:05:23.:05:33.

This is Fifi who, approaching her 30th birthday last year,

:05:34.:05:38.

decided now is the time to find her father, a man

:05:39.:05:41.

Two strangers who were frequenting the same pub.

:05:42.:05:48.

I went on holiday to a very beautiful place, sat on the edge

:05:49.:05:51.

of a loch with some writing paper and decided to go for it and do it.

:05:52.:05:57.

Fifi Giannitto wrote this letter to the man

:05:58.:05:59.

she believed to be her father, a man who hadn't seen her

:06:00.:06:02.

grow up because he was unaware she even existed.

:06:03.:06:04.

And I hope you want to be in touch with me.

:06:05.:06:14.

Fifi had done her own detective work, finding her father's address.

:06:15.:06:17.

John Duncan received the letter and struggled to believe

:06:18.:06:19.

I turned up to kind of explain that I wasn't her dad.

:06:20.:06:27.

But John did agree to have a DNA test.

:06:28.:06:34.

The number came up as 99.99% positive, so there is

:06:35.:06:38.

And I just sat there, I don't know how long I sat

:06:39.:06:44.

I can't tell you, I just sat looking at that screen.

:06:45.:06:49.

You have waves of emotion of anger, happiness.

:06:50.:06:51.

John had a relationship with Fifi's mother in the 1980s,

:06:52.:06:53.

Why, after 30 years, were you not aware that John was your dad?

:06:54.:07:06.

She had her reasons, we don't really want to focus on that part.

:07:07.:07:14.

We are just happy that we've found each other now and we've

:07:15.:07:17.

I am so happy he wants me in his life.

:07:18.:07:24.

She is kind, she's intelligent, she's beautiful.

:07:25.:07:26.

She is everything you could want in a daughter.

:07:27.:07:31.

As if this story couldn't be any more extraordinary,

:07:32.:07:33.

Fifi and John's paths have probably crossed before.

:07:34.:07:35.

So, we could have been standing at the bar next to each other,

:07:36.:07:45.

Proving that some surprises are worth the wait.

:07:46.:07:48.

Ben Godfrey, BBC Midlands Today, Stone.

:07:49.:07:57.

A lorry full with grain ploughed into a house near a railway

:07:58.:08:02.

line in Herefordshire early this morning.

:08:03.:08:03.

Miraculously, no-one was injured, but the accident near Leominster

:08:04.:08:06.

caused chaos for train services, and the road was closed

:08:07.:08:08.

The lorry crashed into the house next to a level crossing

:08:09.:08:18.

in Leominster in freezing conditions just before 6am.

:08:19.:08:22.

It was stuck on its side, embedded into the brickwork

:08:23.:08:25.

The man who lives there, who does not want to be named,

:08:26.:08:30.

spoke to BBC Hereford and Worcester earlier.

:08:31.:08:31.

I guessed something had gone into the house.

:08:32.:08:37.

I knew it wouldn't be a train because it wouldn't be

:08:38.:08:39.

I jumped out of bed, put on some trainers and came

:08:40.:08:43.

As you can see, the lorry won't go anywhere.

:08:44.:08:48.

The lorry was carrying 28 tonnes of grain.

:08:49.:08:51.

The recovery operation took all morning as a structural engineer

:08:52.:08:53.

advised crews on the ground, and power lines were taken down.

:08:54.:08:59.

We first wanted to make sure everyone was all right and not

:09:00.:09:02.

injured which I am happy to confirm is the case.

:09:03.:09:06.

Next, it was about how do we recover the situation as safely as possible.

:09:07.:09:10.

Unfortunately it has had a big effect on the railway network

:09:11.:09:12.

and roads, inconveniencing people quite a bit.

:09:13.:09:14.

Slowly, steadily, the lorry was winched away revealing damaged

:09:15.:09:19.

A friend of the owner gave his reaction.

:09:20.:09:26.

I was delighted to see it was standing.

:09:27.:09:30.

It doesn't seem to be too badly damaged.

:09:31.:09:32.

You must be worried about your friend?

:09:33.:09:36.

Oh, yes, very worried, quite a shock.

:09:37.:09:41.

As you can see, after several hours, the lorry has now been moved,

:09:42.:09:44.

the clear-up operation is going on, and the bricks that were damaged

:09:45.:09:47.

Trains between Shrewsbury and Hereford were

:09:48.:09:51.

By early afternoon, things were getting back to normal.

:09:52.:09:57.

Joanne Writtle, BBC Midlands Today, Leominster.

:09:58.:10:03.

Police investigating the death of a teenager shot dead

:10:04.:10:06.

in Birmingham last year have charged a 24-year-old woman

:10:07.:10:08.

Shaeleana Samuels from Dudley will appear in court next month.

:10:09.:10:11.

Kenichi Phillips died after being shot

:10:12.:10:13.

Disham Downie is currently serving life in prison for his murder.

:10:14.:10:21.

A motorist from Stoke-on-Trent has alleged the police stopped

:10:22.:10:23.

and searched his car 17 times last year for no legitimate reason.

:10:24.:10:26.

Adeel Rehman was last stopped just after Christmas by armed officers

:10:27.:10:28.

The police watchdog, the IPCC, is now beginning an investigation,

:10:29.:10:32.

after being told that nothing was found and no action taken

:10:33.:10:34.

A 75-year-old man has died following a serious

:10:35.:10:45.

house fire in Edgbaston, Birmingham, just after

:10:46.:10:47.

Police say nothing could be done to save the man.

:10:48.:10:51.

His death is not being treated as suspicious.

:10:52.:10:56.

A society has been set up in memory of Bert Bissell,

:10:57.:10:59.

Mr Bissell led regular trips to Ben Nevis, after he first climbed

:11:00.:11:04.

He constructed a Peace Cairn at the summit, and raised thousands

:11:05.:11:11.

The society is calling for a blue plaque to be put up in Buffery Park

:11:12.:11:15.

Since December, poultry farmers have been forced by the Government

:11:16.:11:23.

to keep all their animals inside because of an

:11:24.:11:25.

After such a long period, it meant many were becoming

:11:26.:11:29.

concerned about losing their free-range status.

:11:30.:11:30.

But now the Government has said it's prepared to make some exceptions.

:11:31.:11:33.

Our rural affairs correspondent David Gregory-Kumar

:11:34.:11:35.

So, David, is there any risk to people from this

:11:36.:11:41.

There's no risk to us from either the virus or from meat or eggs.

:11:42.:11:50.

But, as you can see, this form of bird flu is very bad news

:11:51.:11:54.

80% of the turkeys on this Lincolnshire farm were killed

:11:55.:11:58.

Stopping this spreading is why the Government says birds

:11:59.:12:03.

And that's a problem for farmers with free-range flocks.

:12:04.:12:09.

Normally, because they are free-range eggs,

:12:10.:12:11.

you would be seeing these birds out in the fields.

:12:12.:12:14.

Since the beginning of December, because of the risk of bird flu,

:12:15.:12:17.

we have been told by the Government to keep them inside.

:12:18.:12:26.

Now the Government is updating its rules

:12:27.:12:27.

This is the area covering Staffordshire and Mr

:12:28.:12:32.

So now he will be able to release his birds.

:12:33.:12:40.

But inside these blue zones, there's a higher risk of bird flu

:12:41.:12:42.

Zoom out, and you can see how many farmers might be affected.

:12:43.:12:47.

Keeping their birds inside, losing their free range status

:12:48.:12:49.

They will not any more be able to label their eggs as free-range.

:12:50.:12:57.

The Government won't be able to give them any help.

:12:58.:12:59.

But I am hopeful people will recognise that these

:13:00.:13:01.

are free-range flocks, they are being housed for good

:13:02.:13:04.

reason for disease control, and understand that these

:13:05.:13:05.

are still eggs produced from flocks intended to be free range.

:13:06.:13:16.

This is Mr Warrington disinfecting our

:13:17.:13:17.

Typical of the precautions farmers are taking to keep bird flu

:13:18.:13:21.

But even here in a low-risk zone there's still some risk.

:13:22.:13:29.

One day we may have to accept that even free-range chickens

:13:30.:13:32.

could sometimes have to be kept in barns to protect them

:13:33.:13:35.

Thanks for joining us on Midlands Today.

:13:36.:13:40.

Concerns over the finances of a company paid to protect

:13:41.:13:51.

Your detailed weekend weather forecast to come shortly.

:13:52.:13:54.

The night the super troupers came to Birmingham Odeon.

:13:55.:13:59.

40 years on from Abba's first UK gig.

:14:00.:14:06.

And forget the Six Nations, playing rugby the Hartpury way.

:14:07.:14:08.

The Gloucestershre club with 21 wins out of 21.

:14:09.:14:21.

They've shown no compassion or grace towards our community.

:14:22.:14:23.

The words of a resident from one of Herefordshire's

:14:24.:14:25.

most remote towns where the last bank shut

:14:26.:14:27.

Kington has had a bank for more than two centuries

:14:28.:14:34.

and customers say they'll now be forced to travel at least 14 miles

:14:35.:14:37.

Robert Jones' farming family has been coming

:14:38.:14:43.

to Kington to do their banking for two centuries.

:14:44.:14:47.

To make that point, he chose to ride his horse

:14:48.:14:51.

to deposit his last cheque as the last bank closed.

:14:52.:14:57.

My great grandfathers came here to bank on horseback.

:14:58.:15:01.

And I thought to mark this occasion, I would come down as my

:15:02.:15:04.

I wasn't brought up in the computer age, and I don't do computers,

:15:05.:15:09.

As farmer to farmer, we have always dealt with a cheque book.

:15:10.:15:24.

Barclays closed in Kington in September.

:15:25.:15:25.

With HSBC shutting too, the post office is now the only

:15:26.:15:28.

They'll take longer to reach accounts.

:15:29.:15:32.

At the end of the street in Wales, they are coming over

:15:33.:15:35.

This traditional market town is steeped in rural tradition.

:15:36.:15:38.

But it's not just the farming community that'll lose out.

:15:39.:15:41.

John Richardson bought the local hotel 30 years ago with a loan

:15:42.:15:44.

How can dreams becomes realities now with no banks in the town?

:15:45.:15:55.

and ask for a half-a- million-pound loan

:15:56.:16:01.

HSBC is advising customers it has an alternative branch 17

:16:02.:16:05.

The bank says that 93% of client contact at this branch is now done

:16:06.:16:12.

But this customer is so angry, he came to close his account today.

:16:13.:16:24.

The people living in glass houses in London and raking in a lot of money.

:16:25.:16:30.

But the one thing they forget, money is associated with people

:16:31.:16:38.

and I'm afraid they are not thinking of the people's side of it.

:16:39.:16:41.

HSBC, soon to have its HQ in Birmingham, is closing

:16:42.:16:45.

Bob Hockenhull BBC Midlands Today, Herefordshire

:16:46.:16:47.

A busy weekend of sport to look forward to.

:16:48.:16:49.

And in Worcester, the action gets underway shortly,

:16:50.:16:51.

with top-flight basketball being played in front

:16:52.:16:53.

And Dan Pallett's there right now, likely to attract

:16:54.:16:56.

They have had a great start to 2017, welcome, top-flight basketball. We

:16:57.:17:15.

will speak to the coach Paul James. First, Rugby Union.

:17:16.:17:18.

This weekend has the second round of matches in the Six Nations,

:17:19.:17:21.

But any team would be envious of the record

:17:22.:17:25.

They've played 21 won 21 and are 28 points clear at the top

:17:26.:17:29.

Promotion to the Championship is a certainty.

:17:30.:17:32.

So this morning, I went along to see them train.

:17:33.:17:35.

It's 8am, freezing cold and training has started.

:17:36.:17:40.

They've won every game this season and are heading for the second

:17:41.:17:50.

We finished second last year which was a great achievement.

:17:51.:17:55.

We knew we'd be near the top flight again, we had hoped that.

:17:56.:17:59.

I didn't expect to be so many points clear at this stage of the season.

:18:00.:18:03.

Hartpury is very different from a traditional rugby club.

:18:04.:18:09.

The heart of the team is made up from their university students.

:18:10.:18:12.

Take winger Jonas Milkalcius from Lithuania.

:18:13.:18:15.

The early start allows him and many players to then attend lectures.

:18:16.:18:19.

He's studying for a degree in strength and conditioning.

:18:20.:18:25.

Last summer, he was signed by Premiership Harlequins and loaned

:18:26.:18:29.

back so he can complete his degree and play a final season at Hartpury

:18:30.:18:32.

I can confirm it is brilliant for your future career,

:18:33.:18:36.

As these shirts show, they have an excellent record

:18:37.:18:51.

COMMENTATOR: Glorious from England, from Brown to Jonny May,

:18:52.:18:57.

They include the England and Gloucester winger Jonny May

:18:58.:19:01.

Hartpury have dominated National One this season.

:19:02.:19:07.

But can they make the step up to The Championship where the top

:19:08.:19:11.

Next year I think it will be a huge challenge,

:19:12.:19:14.

a different challenge, certainly with a semi-professional

:19:15.:19:16.

I think, we will see how we cope, with the development

:19:17.:19:24.

To consolidate in that league, and test ourselves

:19:25.:19:27.

For now, though, Hartpury are enjoying the ride

:19:28.:19:31.

It's a matter of when, not if, they gain promotion.

:19:32.:19:37.

Dan Pallett, BBC Midlands Today, Hartpury.

:19:38.:19:39.

Victory for Hartpury would be another big step towards promotion.

:19:40.:19:46.

Now, someone who knows all about growing a club

:19:47.:19:48.

through the divisions is Paul James, the coach of the Worcester Wolves.

:19:49.:19:51.

It does sound good, I wish I had it sooner in the season. We had a tough

:19:52.:20:03.

start but we are getting things together. We had a great January,

:20:04.:20:07.

the guys have worked hard in practice, we are looking to continue

:20:08.:20:11.

the wings for the next of the season.

:20:12.:20:12.

Tonight, you're hosting the bottom side, Manchester.

:20:13.:20:13.

We can't be complacent. Last time, we were up by seven with a minute to

:20:14.:20:25.

go and we threw it away. We don't want a repeat.

:20:26.:20:26.

What can you achieve this season now?

:20:27.:20:34.

There is still plenty to play for, the play-offs is a great finale, we

:20:35.:20:40.

still need to win enough to ensure we are in the play-offs. We have a

:20:41.:20:45.

chance to get through in the trophy for the final.

:20:46.:20:49.

We have to give it the best we can. Plenty to play for, let's hope there

:20:50.:20:51.

is a big crowd tonight. If you can't make it here tonight

:20:52.:20:52.

the game is on the BBC's red button. The weekend football gets

:20:53.:20:59.

underway tonight too. And a real test for Gianfranco

:21:00.:21:01.

Zola's Birmimngham City. Last weekend, their first win,

:21:02.:21:10.

beating Fulham in the championship. Yes, they're away

:21:11.:21:14.

to promotion-chasing Sheffield Wednesday

:21:15.:21:15.

in the Championship. Zola finally won his first game last

:21:16.:21:16.
