The Prime Minister gives her clearest indication yet that leaving


the EU is likely to mean leaving the single market.


In her first television interview of the year,


Theresa May says a new relationship is not about retaining


Often people talk in terms as if somehow leaving the EU but somehow


keeping bits of the EU. As Britain looks to relationships


beyond Europe, Boris Johnson has been meeting members


of Donald Trump's team in New York. Also on the programme: Four Israeli


soldiers are killed after a lorry is driven into them in Jerusalem -


the Palestinian driver is shot dead. Snow and sub-zero temperatures lead


to deaths across Europe - from Poland to Italy


and the Greek Islands. The Queen attends church


at Sandringham - her first public appearance since recovering


from a heavy cold. And who'll waltz away with


the awards at the Golden Globes - and will it be any clue


to Oscar success? The Prime Minister has said


the Government will take back control of Britain's borders


when we leave the EU and appeared to acknowledge that


a new relationship is likely to mean In her first interview


of the New Year, Theresa May said we won't be keeping "bits" of our EU


membership and that she doesn't see trade and immigration


as a binary - either/or issue. Mrs May said she'd be setting out


details of her Brexit strategy Here's our Political


Correspondent, Carole Walker. After six months in power, the Prime


Minister has begun to signal what she wants from the Brexit


negotiations. Brexit means Brexit. She knows that no longer satisfies


anyone. She denied muddled thinking, said Britain would take back control


of its borders and appeared to him that would mean leaving the single


market. People talk in terms of somehow leaving the EU but keeping


bits of the EU. We are leaving, coming out so the question is, what


is the right relationship for the UK to have with the European Union when


we are outside. The campaigners on both side of the argument took that


as a clear signal we will leave the single market. Labour are not


satisfied. She had one question put to her three times and still not


answered it which was RU prioritising immigration over access


to the single market. I think now from the triggering of Article 50


and the most important negotiations for a generation, we need more


clarity. But Nicola Sturgeon want any move to take Scotland out of the


single market could trigger a second referendum on independence. They


will be making a big mistake if they think I am nothing. We have to ask


ourselves if we are happy with the kind of country we want to be


determined by a right-wing power. Theresa May does not want her time


in Downing Street to be defined by Brexit and she stressed that


referendum vote was a demand for wider change to the way the country


is run, so she is promising a programme of social reform which she


says will help not just the poorest but every level of society. It is


about us recognising our obligations as citizens within the communities


we have here in the UK. It is about recognising that there is a role for


government but it needs to ensure it is acting effectively in those areas


it should be taking action. She says her government will tackle the


housing crisis, fix a broken markets and change attitudes to mental


health. Her language is ambitious, she will be judged on whether her


policies deliver the changes she is promising.


Mrs May was asked about Donald Trump and we are told the Foreign


Secretary has been there with his team. The government is stepping up


the efforts to build a relationship with the President-elect and his


team. Tonight Donald Trump, Boris Johnson had three hours of talks


with key members of Donald Trump's team in Trump Tower. They included


the President-elect's son-in-law and his chief strategic and I am told


these discussions were frank but positive with both sides stressing


the importance of the special relationship, laying the groundwork


for the Prime Minister to go visit the new president later this month.


Theresa May herself was talking about the importance of the special


relationship today. She said she had good conversations on the phone with


Donald Trump but she said she still found some of his comments about


women in the past and acceptable. You do get the sense the government


is having to work hard to make up the ground here and there is no


suggestion Boris Johnson will meet Donald himself, whereas Michael


Fallon arch, the former Ukip leader has had three meetings and got his


seat booked for the inauguration ceremony.


Four Israeli soldiers were killed in Jerusalem today


after a Palestinian man drove a lorry into a group


The driver, said by Prime Minister Netanyahu to be a supporter


of so-called Islamic State, was shot dead at the scene.


In the last 16 months there have been a series of attacks


by Palestinians on Israelis - this was the deadliest


Our correspondent Yolande Knell reports from Jerusalem.


A hazy view of Jerusalem. This is what soldiers on a training course


had come to see. Security camera footage shows two groups. The one in


the background has just got off a coach when this happens. Look at the


top left of the screen. The lorry drives that the soldiers at high


speed and hits them. Then it backs up, apparently trying to crush more


people before the driver is shot dead. Of all the soldiers of died


were in their early 20s. More than a dozen were wounded. Witnesses who


saw the aftermath spoke of their shock. I just saw the truck going


from the road onto the sidewalk and just hitting the soldiers. It took


me some time to understand it was a terror attack. The attacker was a


Palestinian age 28 from a nearby area of east Jerusalem. You can


still see the skid marks in the dirt here. This is the very spot where do


soldiers were killed. There has been an upsurge in Palestinian attacks


but this has been one of the deadliest scene. Visiting the scene


the Prime Minister said this was similar to recent attacks in Europe


and that it could have been inspired by the so-called Islamic State.


TRANSLATION: We know the identity of the


attacker. He was a supporter of the Islamic State. We know there has


been a series of terror attacks. There could be a connection between


them from France to Berlin and now Jerusalem. Israel has blamed


previous attacks on incitement by Palestinian officials and social


media. Palestinian leaders say they have been driven by anger after more


than 20 years of on and off peace talks have failed to deliver an


independent Palestinian state. And Yolande is live


for us now in Jerusalem. The Israeli cabinet met


in response to this attack. The Israeli cabinet has been meeting


and we understand that they have decided in a controversial form of


deterrent to demolish the house of this lorry driver. Israeli police


have moved into the man's neighbourhood. They have made a


number of arrests including members of the man's family. The Israeli


cabinet is saying it for now detained without trial those who it


finds to be sympathising with Islamic State although it has to be


said that actions inspired by Islamic State have been rare. What


we have seen over the past 16 months in these Palestinian attacks, most


have been nice attacks. There have been some shootings as well. About


40 Israelis have been killed during that period and more than 230


Palestinians have been shot dead. Israel says most of them were


carrying out attacks, some were killed in clashes and in protest as


well, but in the past few weeks, it had seemed there had been a big lull


in these attacks and what will concern people now is any idea that


that could be changing. Here, Israel's ambassador to Britain


has apologised after a member of his staff was secretly recorded


saying he wanted to "take Shai Masot, a political advisor,


was filmed by a reporter The Minister he's referring


to is Sir Alan Duncan, who he claimed was creating


"problems" for Israel. Sir Alan has previously


criticised Israeli settlement The authorities in Florida have


charged a 26-year old Iraq veteran with the shooting at Fort Lauderdale


airport which killed five people There are questions


about why Esteban Santiago - who'd told the FBI he heard voices


and was being controlled by the US Government -


was allowed to keep his weapon The former Iranian president Akbar


Hashemi Rafsanjani has died. He was a central figure in the reform


movement that was trying to move towards a more moderate Iran. He


died from a heart attack. Transport for London is warning


of severe travel problems in the capital in the morning


because of a 24 hour strike by Underground workers


which began this evening. Our reporter Andy Moore


is at King's Cross Station now. This is a strike by cheap station


staff and it is likely to lead to the closure of many stations.


Transport for London Seo services will be restricted. E-mail for


London says it will cause misery for millions but it is not just


Londoners who will be affected. Tourists will be hit, tens of


thousands of people that pour into the main London stations will be


hit. This station will be closed so too will be Paddington, Waterloo and


Victoria. The strike is about staffing levels at stations. There


were last-ditch talks today. Transport for London said they would


employ more staff. The union said it was too little too late.


More than twenty people have now died as a result of bitterly cold


weather in much of central and eastern Europe over


Temperatures have plunged as low as minus 30 celsius with snow


covering the continent as far south as Turkey and the Greek Islands.


Rarely does the icy grip of the Arctic Circle reach as deep into


Europe as it has this weekend. The snow has even fallen on the


Mediterranean beaches of the Greek islands. In the Dolomites, the


temperatures plunged to -23 Celsius overnight. This is central Italy.


The hilltop town that was worst hit by this summer's earthquake. In


Rome, the Pope prayed for the city's homeless. It was so cold the waters


had frozen in the Fountains of Saint Peter's Square. In Istanbul Bay have


had three straight days of snowfall. Turkish airlines said they had


grounded over 600 flights this weekend. Wins have come down from


the Arctic. Real icy chill to them. Sub zero temperatures and plenty of


snow as well. At risk of the thousands of refugees still crossing


Europe on foot. Three died in the mountain in Bulgaria. In Belgrade as


several hundred took Celta in this customs warehouse. This weekend


Russia celebrated Orthodox Christmas the coldest in 120 years. -30 in


Moscow last night but then they are used to it. Around 500 people,


perhaps with just one extra layer, set off for a five mile bike ride


along the Moscow River. So far the UK has escaped but forecasters say


the cold weather is heading our way. There will not be as much snow as in


Europe but the Arctic winds could send temperatures below those of


Iceland and Sweden. Credit card and personal loan debt


is at record levels according It says unsecured debt -


that is money that's not borrowed against property -


has reached ?13,000 Unions are warning a slowdown


in wage growth and increasing inflation could make the debt more


difficult to repay for Here's our Business


Correspondent Joe Lynam. With the Christmas sales


winding down, our finances We appear to be taking on increasing


amounts of unsecured debt, that includes student loans


and overdrafts, but especially credit cards


as well as personal loans. Celine Jordan ran up credit card


debts and overdrafts of ?23,000. Her finances are in order now,


but she said getting ?23,000, 12 and a half on this card,


more on the other one. Britain has a record total


of ?349 billion in unsecured debt. For the average household,


the figure has doubled since 2000 to almost ?13,000,


which means we spent almost 28% of our disposable income,


are earnings after tax, That doesn't even


include the mortgage. There is too much across the board


because that is what people are dying and we did it about two


thirds of the debt is from We think these figures are cause


for concern and we think these are issues we need to be thinking


about going into the worrying year for people when you're


expecting to see another While some types of debt might be


rising, the Bank of England says mortgage arrears and loan defaults


have been steadily declining. Andy Haldane and from the banks


of the regulator wasn't worried yet. Although the household debt ratio


is high by historical comparison, it has come down in a fairly


sizeable away, but about With interest rates set to remain


low, regulators are worried that we may be taking on too many


debts, which becomes an issue The Queen has recovered


from her heavy cold and was well enough to attend church


at Sandringham this morning - her first public appearance


since the beginning of December. Our Royal Correspondent


Daniela Relph was there - her report contains flash


photography. It had been a much


anticipated arrival. Driven in a state Bentley,


it was the first time the Queen was seen in public since arriving


on the Sandringham Cheered as she emerged from the car,


she arrived just before 11 o'clock for the church service accompanied


by the Duke of Edinburgh. She had missed church on Christmas


and New Year's Day due to Those who waited were


pleased to see her. We saw her very close up


and she looked a little bit frail, When you see her you


get a little buzz. The Queen's Speech, recorded


before Christmas Day, was one of the last time


the monarch had been seen. She also carried out


an investiture in early December. Over the past three weeks


she has been laid low. As a precaution, she was advised


to stay inside and rest, The Queen's attendance


at church is a sign Her appearance today will ease


the inevitable concern and speculation that arose


during her absence from church After church, the Queen


was driven back to the main She will remain in Norfiolk


until next month. The singer songwriter Peter Sarstedt

a few British contenders. Our correspondent James Cook


is in Los Angeles - his report contains


some flash photography. Hours before the first big award


ceremony of 2017 and tinsel town is abuzz with excitement.


Hollywood likes nothing better than talking about itself.


This year it has gone a step further, singing and dancing.


You've never seen it? I've never seen it.


You know it is playing at the Rialto?


Really? Yes.


The next contender for Golden Globes glory could hardly


He usually can take care of hisself. He good that way.


Moonlight, with six nominations, is a coming-of-age story.


Naomie Harris plays a drug-addicted mother, and she thinks the industry


is getting better at telling stories about people of colour.


I think there is a fantastic level of diversity this year,


and I think it's something that is so to be celebrated.


It almost seems so regressive to have these conversations


about race, in 2017 now, that we are still fixated about that.


Manchester by the sea is another contender for success. What the hell


do you care where you live? The globe also on American television


which maintains a fascination for the British Royal family.


Claire Foy has been showered with praise for her portrayal


Do you know what the Royals think of it?


I wish they would reach out, but we don't know anything, really.


In TV, the BBC coproduction The Night Manager has


I enjoyed Manchester by the sea, moonlight. All part of the richness


of modern-day film-making. This year in Hollywood there is plenty of talk


of politics. But there is relief from the subjects with a simple


story harking back to the golden age of film. Which will prevail, we will


find out soon. That is all from me. Time for the news wherever you are.
