I'm Martine Croxall.

0:00:090:00:11

The headlines at 10:

0:00:110:00:12

Brendan Cox has stepped down

from two charities set up

0:00:120:00:14

in memory of his wife,

the late MP Jo Cox,

0:00:140:00:16

after allegations of sexual assault

were made public.

0:00:160:00:21

I think the right thing to do

is to resign, and to look

0:00:210:00:24

at his behaviour in the past and try

and make a change in the future.

0:00:240:00:26

Could the cost of university courses

vary, depending on their content?

0:00:260:00:29

The Government prepares

to launch a a review

0:00:290:00:31

of tuition fees in England.

0:00:310:00:34

Ministers reject pleas to issue

a medical cannabis licence

0:00:350:00:38

for a six-year-old boy whose rare

form of epilepsy improves

0:00:380:00:40

after taking the drug.

0:00:400:00:45

The best of film-making

talent has been honoured

0:00:470:00:49

in the BAFTA awards this evening

at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

0:00:490:00:53

The film Three Billboards Outside

Ebbing, Missouri was the biggest

0:00:530:00:59

success of the night,

taking a total five awards -

0:00:590:01:01

including Best Film,

Best Supporting Actor

0:01:010:01:03

and Best Leading Actress.

0:01:030:01:05

Gary Oldman won the award for his

betrayal of Winston Churchill in the

0:01:050:01:14

Darkest Hour and the director won

The Shape Of Water. We round up the

0:01:140:01:20

day's sports news, highlights of the

FA Cup and from the Winter Olympics.

0:01:200:01:27

Good evening and

welcome to BBC News.

0:01:410:01:43

The family of the murdered Labour MP

Jo Cox, have pledged

0:01:440:01:48

to support her husband,

after he resigned from charity roles

0:01:480:01:51

following allegations

of sexual misconduct.

0:01:510:01:55

Brendan Cox denies assaulting a

woman in the United States in 2015,

0:01:550:01:58

but admits to "inappropriate"

behaviour while working

0:01:580:02:00

for Save the Children.

0:02:000:02:01

The charity has confirmed

that he was suspended

0:02:010:02:03

from his role there,

and says he resigned

0:02:030:02:05

before a disciplinary

process was completed.

0:02:050:02:07

Robert Hall reports.

0:02:070:02:09

Jo Cox, Labour MP and mother of two,

was murdered in her constituency

0:02:100:02:14

during the run-up to the 2016 EU

referendum, shot and stabbed

0:02:140:02:19

by a far right extremist.

0:02:190:02:22

In the months after her death,

the public rallied in support

0:02:220:02:26

of her family and in particular,

her husband, Brendan,

0:02:260:02:30

who set up two charities,

the Jo Cox Foundation

0:02:300:02:32

and More in Common.

0:02:320:02:34

Today he announced his

resignation from both of them,

0:02:340:02:37

following allegations

of inappropriate behaviour a year

0:02:370:02:38

before his wife's murder.

0:02:380:02:41

The claims are reported

in a Sunday paper.

0:02:420:02:44

They're linked to alleged incidents

at Harvard University

0:02:440:02:46

in Massachusetts, and whilst Mr Cox

was working for Save the Children.

0:02:460:02:51

In this case, he's said to have

pinned a staff member to a wall

0:02:510:02:54

while making sexual comments.

0:02:540:02:56

Mr Cox says the claims

are a massive exaggeration.

0:02:560:02:58

His statement continues...

0:02:580:03:01

Labour backbencher Jess Phillips,

a friend of Jo Cox, said her widower

0:03:300:03:32

was right to stand back

from the charities.

0:03:320:03:34

I'm not defending his actions,

I am trying to think

0:03:340:03:37

about this person who I know,

and my friend, who isn't here,

0:03:370:03:40

and make sure that there

is a change in the future.

0:03:400:03:42

I don't defend any

of this behaviour.

0:03:420:03:44

Jo Cox's sister, Kim Leadbeater,

stood with Brendan Cox at the end

0:03:440:03:47

of the murder trial.

0:03:470:03:48

Today she said it had been another

very difficult day for the family

0:03:480:03:51

but they would support Brendan Cox

and they respected him

0:03:510:03:53

for admitting past mistakes.

0:03:530:03:55

No one from Save the Children

was available to speak to us today,

0:03:550:03:59

but in a statement the charity said

staff safety and welfare

0:03:590:04:01

were priorities and that

all complaints were dealt

0:04:010:04:03

with in accordance with its

internal procedures.

0:04:030:04:08

That was what had happened in 2015,

when Mr Cox was suspended

0:04:080:04:11

and the disciplinary process began.

0:04:110:04:14

He had resigned before that

process was complete.

0:04:140:04:17

Another senior Labour figure linked

Brendan Cox's decision to wider

0:04:170:04:20

changes in attitude.

0:04:200:04:22

Hopefully we are seeing a change now

in the climate and the culture,

0:04:220:04:25

where people are recognising

that those in positions of power

0:04:250:04:28

should not abuse positions of power,

those who end up becoming victims

0:04:280:04:31

of harassment should have

support to speak out.

0:04:310:04:37

Tonight, Jo Cox's family say

they are supporting each

0:04:380:04:40

other and are unwavering

in their determination that nothing

0:04:400:04:44

will cloud her legacy.

0:04:440:04:45

Robert Hall, BBC News.

0:04:450:04:48

The Education Secretary Damian Hinds

has said there should be more

0:04:500:04:55

variation in the cost of university

courses, with each degree

0:04:550:04:57

reflecting their value

to "society as a whole".

0:04:570:05:00

He was speaking as the Prime

Minister prepares to outline a wide

0:05:000:05:03

ranging review into higher education

funding in England.

0:05:030:05:07

Labour, who have pledged to scrap

tuition fees, say another

0:05:070:05:09

review isn't the solution.

0:05:090:05:11

Here's our education

editor Branwen Jeffreys.

0:05:110:05:14

This is one of two jobs

Myra Kesh is holding down.

0:05:150:05:18

She's in her first

year of university.

0:05:180:05:24

The loan for living

costs isn't enough.

0:05:240:05:26

Throughout the process of applying

to uni I was thinking this

0:05:260:05:28

is so unfair, I'm getting a lower

maintenance allowance and I'm

0:05:280:05:31

going to have to work several

jobs in order to live.

0:05:310:05:34

Sheffield Hallam has lots

of students from ordinary families.

0:05:340:05:37

For Alice, that means she worries

less about tuition fees and more

0:05:370:05:40

about just getting by.

0:05:400:05:45

Last year, I budgeted for about £50

a week and that was still too much

0:05:450:05:53

to live on, so I had to bring that

down to about £30 and that

0:05:530:05:56

is still not enough.

0:05:560:05:57

Every so often I might have

to ask my parents for help.

0:05:570:06:00

If they can just give me £20

for food, for basic food.

0:06:000:06:03

Up to 6.1% interest

is charged on student debt.

0:06:030:06:10

An average £5,800 of interest

charges before leaving university.

0:06:100:06:14

In total, it's about £57,000 of

borrowing for the poorest students.

0:06:140:06:17

After 30 years, any unpaid

loan is written off.

0:06:170:06:22

But by 2021, there could be £160

billion of outstanding student debt.

0:06:220:06:28

It's the poorest students in England

who end up borrowing the most.

0:06:310:06:38

Because they can't rely on the Bank

of Mum and Dad for living costs.

0:06:380:06:42

So altering the system isn't simple.

0:06:420:06:44

If you just lower tuition fees,

you help the richest,

0:06:440:06:47

unless you also put more money

into maintenance support.

0:06:470:06:51

In his first interview,

the new Education Secretary

0:06:510:06:53

gave little away.

0:06:530:06:57

Only one thing is certain.

0:06:570:06:58

They expect graduates to help

pay for universities.

0:06:580:07:02

We think it is right that

if you benefit from a university

0:07:020:07:06

degree, you should make

a contribution and that is what this

0:07:060:07:09

current system does.

0:07:090:07:10

What we're doing in the review

is looking at how that

0:07:100:07:12

system works, making sure there

are alternatives, more variety.

0:07:120:07:19

The Government wants more short

degrees, more part-time study.

0:07:190:07:22

There's been little

appetite for either so far.

0:07:220:07:26

Universities say making studying

affordable is the key.

0:07:260:07:30

You need to reintroduce maintenance

grants at a level which genuinely

0:07:300:07:33

offers students a basic

level of subsistence.

0:07:330:07:36

Universities want a secure future.

0:07:360:07:38

Students, a fairer deal.

0:07:380:07:43

But with economic uncertainty ahead,

the Government's review has

0:07:430:07:45

little wriggle room.

0:07:450:07:46

Branwen Jeffreys,

BBC News, Sheffield.

0:07:460:07:49

Our Political Correspondent

Alex Forsyth has been

0:07:490:07:51

explaining why the Government

is launching its review

0:07:510:07:53

into higher education.

0:07:530:07:55

I think the Government has been

feeling pressure on this

0:07:550:07:58

front for some time.

0:07:580:07:59

That is in part because of that

Labour pledge made during last

0:07:590:08:02

year's election to scrap tuition

fees entirely for all

0:08:020:08:04

students in England.

0:08:040:08:06

That was largely credited

for Labour's popularity

0:08:060:08:07

with younger voters.

0:08:070:08:10

The Conservatives, I think,

are conscious that on this front

0:08:100:08:12

they need to gain some ground,

hence this review

0:08:120:08:14

of higher education.

0:08:140:08:17

The real question is,

what can they do on this

0:08:170:08:21

issue of fees, because,

as you heard there, they remain

0:08:210:08:23

committed to the principle that it's

those who go to university,

0:08:230:08:26

who benefit for a degree,

who should pay for it,

0:08:260:08:28

rather than everybody.

0:08:280:08:29

So they're not going

to match Labour's offer

0:08:290:08:31

and scrap fees altogether.

0:08:310:08:35

The risk is that whatever they do

in place, whether that is trying

0:08:350:08:38

to encourage different fees

for different courses or shorter

0:08:380:08:40

courses, that could be seen as just

tinkering around the edges.

0:08:400:08:45

In fact today Justin Greening,

who was the former

0:08:450:08:47

Education Secretary,

who's only very recently

0:08:470:08:49

left the Government,

she said the issue of student

0:08:490:08:52

finance should not be kicked around

like a political football.

0:08:520:08:55

And we'll find out how this story -

and many others - are covered

0:08:550:08:58

in tomorrow's front pages at 10:30

and 11:30pm this evening

0:08:580:09:01

evening in The Papers.

0:09:010:09:04

Our guests joining me

tonight are he former

0:09:040:09:06

Conservative Adviser,

Giles Kenningham and Torcuil

0:09:060:09:07

Crichton, Political Editor

at The Daily Record.

0:09:070:09:10

More than 60 people are feared

dead after a passenger

0:09:100:09:12

plane crashed in Iran.

0:09:120:09:14

The flight, which took off

from the capital, Tehran,

0:09:140:09:17

came down in the Zagros mountains,

in the south-west of the country,

0:09:170:09:19

on its way to the city of Yasuj.

0:09:190:09:21

It was operated by Aseman Airlines.

0:09:210:09:24

Families have been gathering

at a mosque close to an airport

0:09:240:09:27

in Tehran to get information

about their loved ones.

0:09:270:09:29

Bad weather, including fog and heavy

snow, has hampered rescue efforts

0:09:290:09:31

and the search has been called off

for the night.

0:09:310:09:34

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin

Netanyahu has launched

0:09:350:09:41

a scathing attack on Iran,

calling it the "greatest

0:09:410:09:43

threat to our world".

0:09:430:09:44

He was speaking at the international

security conference in Munich.

0:09:440:09:47

Mr Netanyahu also held up

what he said was a piece

0:09:470:09:51

of an Iranian drone shot down over

Israel.

0:09:510:09:54

He warned Iran not to "test

Israel's resolve".

0:09:540:09:58

Here's a piece of that Iranian

drone, or what's left of it after we

0:09:580:10:02

shot it down.

0:10:020:10:05

I brought it here so you could

see it for yourself.

0:10:050:10:10

Mr Zarif, do you recognise this?

0:10:100:10:14

You should - it's yours.

0:10:140:10:18

You can take back with

you a message to the

0:10:180:10:22

tyrants of Tehran -

do not test Israel's resolve.

0:10:220:10:26

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad

Javad Zarif said Mr Netanyahu's

0:10:290:10:33

speech was an attempt to undermine

the international nuclear deal.

0:10:330:10:37

I can assure you that

if Iran's interests are not

0:10:380:10:42

secured, Iran will respond.

0:10:420:10:46

We'll respond seriously

and I believe it would be a response

0:10:460:10:49

that people will be sorry for taking

the erroneous actions they did.

0:10:490:10:55

We will not be the first ones

to violate an agreement

0:10:550:10:58

for which all of us tried,

in spite of Netanyahu's

0:10:580:11:02

attempts, to achieve.

0:11:020:11:07

We achieved it in spite of him,

we implemented it in spite of him,

0:11:070:11:11

and the world will maintain that

agreement, in spite of his

0:11:110:11:14

delusional attempts.

0:11:140:11:18

Kasra Naji from BBC Persian

is in Munich and he explained more

0:11:180:11:21

about the tensions between Israel

and Iran.

0:11:210:11:25

It's very real, actually.

0:11:250:11:27

And what we've seen in the last

three days in this conference,

0:11:270:11:30

in this hotel behind me...

0:11:300:11:32

In fact, a lot of people who did

speak, some of the leaders

0:11:320:11:35

of the countries, top officials,

strategists who spoke,

0:11:350:11:40

they spoke about the real danger

of a conflict breaking out in that

0:11:400:11:45

region, particularly

because of the worrying

0:11:450:11:50

developments in Syria.

0:11:500:11:52

There are people here who believe

Syria today poses the greatest

0:11:520:11:58

threat to world peace,

in effect, and what has happened

0:11:580:12:03

eight days ago between Iran

and Israel lends itself to that.

0:12:030:12:10

A group of American teenagers

who survived a school shooting

0:12:130:12:17

in Florida earlier this week have

announced a national march

0:12:170:12:19

on Washington to demand political

action on gun control.

0:12:190:12:22

They say they're determined

that the mass shooting,

0:12:220:12:26

in which fourteen pupils and three

staff members were killed,

0:12:260:12:28

will be a turning point

in the national debate on guns.

0:12:280:12:34

We can speak to our Washington

Correspondent, David Willis.

0:12:340:12:39

When is this March due to take

place?

It is interesting. Next month

0:12:390:12:46

is the simple answer to your

question. It seemed for a while

0:12:460:12:51

after the Florida shooting last week

that the response might be pretty

0:12:510:12:54

typical. Outrage, calls for some

sort of action, followed by complete

0:12:540:13:02

inertia that there are signs that

this might be different this time

0:13:020:13:05

around. For example, the Columbine

massacre, going back nearly two

0:13:050:13:11

decades, there was a lot of sadness,

a lot of outrage but no activism

0:13:110:13:17

that stemmed from it. Now we CPAP

signs that there might be some sort

0:13:170:13:24

of activism, that young people are

keen to take up this issue. In many

0:13:240:13:28

cases, these are people who weren't

even born when the Columbine

0:13:280:13:32

massacre took place, yet they've

grown up quite used to so-called

0:13:320:13:36

active shooter drills in their

schools. Now it seems they are

0:13:360:13:42

starting to mobilise, to speak out

against the National Rifle

0:13:420:13:46

Association and to speak out against

politicians who take contributions

0:13:460:13:50

from them. So we have this national,

this rally in the capital here next

0:13:500:13:57

month. We've also got a school walk

out which is planned for the 20th of

0:13:570:14:03

April, the 19th anniversary of the

Columbine massacre and there is also

0:14:030:14:07

a big rally planned this week in the

Florida capital, Tallahassee. So

0:14:070:14:12

some are saying this could be a

turning point, but of course there

0:14:120:14:16

is a long way to go.

Briefly,

President Obama tried to tackle the

0:14:160:14:22

issue of gun control and didn't

succeed. Any sign that the political

0:14:220:14:27

landscape is any different now?

Not

really, I have do so. Donald Trump

0:14:270:14:35

accepted about $30 million from the

National Rifle Association when he

0:14:350:14:38

ran for president and he has said he

has no plans to tinker with the

0:14:380:14:41

right to bear arms. But I have to

say today the Ohio Governor, John

0:14:410:14:51

sick, called for the president to

take the call lead on this issue

0:14:510:14:55

with small incremental reforms of

the gun-control laws here and there

0:14:550:15:01

is interesting to note that this

week the president is due to sit

0:15:010:15:05

down in the White House for what is

called a listening session with some

0:15:050:15:10

high school students. We will be

watching to see what comes out of

0:15:100:15:14

that, of course.

David Willey since

Washington, thank you very much.

0:15:140:15:19

Police in Leeds have been called

to one of Yorkshire's busiest

0:15:190:15:21

shopping streets after an attempted

ram raid took place.

0:15:210:15:24

As you can see, men in two cars

drove onto a pedestrianised street

0:15:270:15:30

in the centre of Leeds and attempted

to rob a high end watch shop.

0:15:300:15:33

The men in balaclavas didn't succeed

in gaining entry and escaped before

0:15:330:15:36

the police arrived.

0:15:360:15:42

The Home Office has said it can't

issue a medical cannabis licence

0:15:420:15:49

for a six-year-old epileptic chid,

despite calls from a group

0:15:490:15:51

of MPs and his family.

0:15:520:15:53

Alfie Dingley, who's

from Warwickshire, regularly

0:15:530:15:54

suffers violent seizures.

0:15:540:15:55

A cannabis based treatment

he received in the Netherlands

0:15:550:15:57

improved his condition,

but it's illegal in the UK.

0:15:570:15:59

Charlotte Gallagher has the story.

0:16:000:16:02

Six-year-old Alfie Dingley has

a rare form of epilepsy and suffers

0:16:020:16:05

up to 30 violent seizures every day.

0:16:050:16:11

To go through that once

would be traumatising,

0:16:110:16:14

but we're going through it sometimes

every 7-10 days, and it's just

0:16:140:16:17

absolutely horrendous.

0:16:170:16:21

Last September, the family moved

to the Netherlands so Alfie could be

0:16:210:16:24

prescribed medical cannabis oil.

0:16:240:16:26

His parents say he went 24 days

without having a seizure.

0:16:260:16:33

They've now moved back to the UK,

but cannabis oil is illegal

0:16:330:16:35

in Britain, so they want

the Home Secretary Amber Rudd

0:16:350:16:38

to give Alfie a license to use it.

0:16:380:16:42

It is thought this drug works with

nerve receptors in the brain to help

0:16:420:16:47

control the seizures.

0:16:470:16:49

But the Home Office

has ruled it out.

0:16:490:16:51

They say...

0:16:510:16:52

A group of MPs want

the Home Secretary to make

0:17:060:17:09

an exception for Alfie.

0:17:090:17:13

If we can find a way for her around

the regulations that exist,

0:17:130:17:17

and we believe that we can,

she can issue a license to make sure

0:17:170:17:20

that Alfie can get this medicine.

0:17:200:17:22

Alfie's family have vowed

to continue their battle,

0:17:220:17:26

saying you've got to fight,

"for your kids and we want to know

0:17:260:17:30

that we've done everything we can".

0:17:300:17:35

0:17:350:17:41

The family of murdered MP Jo Cox

have pledged to support her widow

0:17:410:17:48

after he admitted behaving

inappropriately to women in 2015.

0:17:480:17:59

The Education Secretary says

university tuition fees should

0:17:590:18:02

reflect the economic benefit

graduates will have two the country

0:18:020:18:05

ahead of a review of higher

education funding in England.

0:18:050:18:11

Sport now, and time for a full

round up, from the BBC Sport Centre.

0:18:150:18:18

Good evening.

0:18:180:18:19

There was a shock in

today's only FA cup tie.

0:18:190:18:21

League One's bottom team Rochdale

came from behind to earn

0:18:210:18:24

a replay with Tottenham.

0:18:240:18:27

Harry Kane had given

the Premier League side a 2-1 lead

0:18:270:18:31

from the penalty spot in the last

two minutes but Rochdale conjured

0:18:310:18:34

a dramatic equaliser deep

into injury time at Spotland.

0:18:340:18:36

Steve Davis was their hero

and they will face each other again

0:18:360:18:39

at Wembley for a place

in the quarter-finals.

0:18:390:18:41

It was an amazing game, an amazing

event for us. It was a real

0:18:410:18:47

pleasure. We took the opponents on.

We know how good they are, but we

0:18:470:18:54

tried to take them on. Sacrificial

behaviour at times from the players,

0:18:540:18:59

but every one of the players I

thought were magnificent. We knew

0:18:590:19:02

having gone 1-0 up in the first

half, we almost slipped the bomb, if

0:19:020:19:07

you like. We knew what was going to

come in the second half was that I

0:19:070:19:11

thought the players, they responded

superbly, their heads could have

0:19:110:19:14

gone down but they didn't after the

penalty. I feel as though we got a

0:19:140:19:18

deserved equaliser.

0:19:180:19:20

Rangers are up to second

in the Scottish Premiership on goal

0:19:200:19:24

difference after an eight goal

thriller at Hamilton.

0:19:240:19:25

Accies actually took the lead

after only five minutes

0:19:250:19:27

at New Douglas Park, but Rangers

equalised and then went ahead

0:19:270:19:30

after a Josh Windass shot

was spilled by Hamilton keeper

0:19:300:19:33

Gary Woods.

0:19:330:19:36

The home side made it 2-2,

but Rangers scored two

0:19:360:19:38

quick-fire goals and then Windass

scored his third to make it 5-2.

0:19:380:19:42

Hamilton pulled one back

in the closing minutes, but the 5-3

0:19:420:19:45

win means Rangers move

above Aberdeen.

0:19:450:19:48

Celtic drew 0-0 at home

to St Johnstone in the day's

0:19:480:19:51

other fixture, but have

still increased their lead

0:19:510:19:53

at the top to nine points.

0:19:530:19:54

British slope-style skier

James Woods desribed his fourth

0:19:540:20:00

place finish as "minging"

as he narrowly missed

0:20:000:20:02

out on a bronze medal.

0:20:020:20:05

Britain needed just one more

to make it a record five

0:20:050:20:08

at a Winter Olympics but failed

to add to their tally today.

0:20:080:20:11

At least Lizzie Yarnold

and Laura Deas received their medals

0:20:110:20:13

after yesterday's sliding success,

but Great Britains women have lost

0:20:130:20:15

again in the curling.

0:20:150:20:18

From Pyeongchang, here's our sports

correspondent, Andy Swiss.

0:20:180:20:20

From a dry ski slope in Sheffield

to an Olympic final.

0:20:210:20:26

James Woods has long made

the extraordinary seem effortless,

0:20:260:20:30

and once again how he rose

to the occasion, as he tricked,

0:20:300:20:33

flipped and leapt his way

right into contention.

0:20:330:20:35

COMMENTATOR:

What's he got for us?

0:20:350:20:36

CHEERING.

0:20:380:20:41

You can hear what the

crowd think of that.

0:20:410:20:44

What a run by James Woods!

0:20:440:20:45

He came here with such

high hopes for a medal,

0:20:450:20:48

will that be enough?

0:20:480:20:51

Well, it seemed it might be.

0:20:510:20:52

Second place for Woodsy...

0:20:520:20:53

And with just a few left to go

he was still in bronze,

0:20:530:20:57

before America's Nick Goepper

snatched away his medal.

0:20:570:20:59

So close.

0:20:590:21:02

It's a game of perfection,

and it's not just that,

0:21:020:21:05

you've got to go above

and beyond technical difficulty.

0:21:050:21:07

That was insane.

0:21:070:21:09

Controversy meanwhile

at the curling.

0:21:090:21:18

The woman's captain

Eve Muirhead penalised for not

0:21:180:21:19

releasing her stone in time.

0:21:190:21:21

Muirhead felt she had

let go before the line,

0:21:210:21:23

but curling does not

use video technology.

0:21:230:21:24

The incident handed victory

to opponents Sweden.

0:21:240:21:27

Meanwhile, it's emerged speed skater

Elise Christie suffered soft tissue

0:21:270:21:29

damage in her crash yesterday.

0:21:290:21:31

Her boyfriend posted this...

0:21:310:21:33

With her next event on Tuesday,

it's a race against time.

0:21:330:21:36

But for others,

there was celebration.

0:21:370:21:40

Lizzy Yarnold receiving her

skeleton gold medal.

0:21:400:21:43

Her historic success, she told me,

was still sinking in.

0:21:430:21:47

It was a big goal four years ago

to try and be the first

0:21:470:21:50

British Winter Olympian

to retain my title.

0:21:500:21:52

It was scary to say it,

but now it's rolling off

0:21:520:21:54

the tongue a bit more.

0:21:540:21:55

I'm just so proud that it

all came together.

0:21:550:21:59

And with team-mate Laura Deas

collecting her bronze,

0:21:590:22:01

a picture-perfect podium

for British sport.

0:22:010:22:06

Andy Swiss, BBC News, Pyeongchang.

0:22:060:22:12

That's all the sport for now.

0:22:120:22:13

More sport on the BBC News Channel

throughout the evening.

0:22:130:22:16

Thank you very much.

0:22:160:22:19

A committee of MPs has warned that

a hard Brexit could mean higher food

0:22:190:22:22

prices for consumers.

0:22:220:22:26

A report by the Commons Environment,

Food and Rural Affairs Committee

0:22:260:22:28

also said failure to get

a free-trade deal with the EU

0:22:280:22:31

could be devastating for farmers.

0:22:310:22:32

Our business correspondent

Joe Lynam reports.

0:22:320:22:35

The peace and bucolic splendour

of UK farmlands could be

0:22:360:22:41

dramatically upset if Britain fails

to get a comments

0:22:410:22:43

of free post Brexit.

0:22:430:22:47

A key group of MPs says consumers

might also end up paying more

0:22:470:22:54

for food if the UK reverts

to World Trade Organisation rules.

0:22:540:23:05

The Environment Food and Rural

Affairs committee of MPs says

0:23:080:23:11

a so-called hard Brexit

would have a devastating effect

0:23:110:23:13

on rural communities.

0:23:130:23:14

That's because 60% of UK food

exports go to the EU,

0:23:140:23:16

and they could face

much higher tariffs.

0:23:160:23:20

The committee also said that Britain

should not dilute its own high food

0:23:200:23:23

standards in order to sign

new global trade deals,

0:23:230:23:25

such as one with the US.

0:23:250:23:27

If we go into a sort of WTO

situation where there

0:23:270:23:30

are tariffs on imported food,

that will actually

0:23:300:23:31

drive food prices up.

0:23:310:23:32

Now, for some commodities,

that will actually suit farming,

0:23:320:23:35

but perhaps not the consumer,

if they have to pay

0:23:350:23:37

more for their food.

0:23:370:23:41

The Government has sought

to soothe those concerns.

0:23:410:23:46

It said that leaving the EU gave

the UK a golden opportunity

0:23:460:23:49

to secure ambitious free-trade deals

while supporting our

0:23:490:23:51

farmers and producers.

0:23:510:23:52

It said it would not compromise

on the UK's high environmental

0:23:520:23:55

or welfare standards.

0:23:550:23:56

Joe Lynam, BBC News.

0:23:560:23:57

The stars have been out

for this year's BAFTAS.

0:23:570:23:59

And there was celebrations

all round for Three Billboards

0:23:590:24:01

Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

0:24:010:24:06

The dark-comedy drama

scooped the Best Film prize

0:24:060:24:15

as well as a host of other awards.

0:24:150:24:23

And the film's star,

Frances McDormond, won best Actress

0:24:230:24:25

for her performance of a mother

seeking justice for her

0:24:250:24:28

daughter's murder.

0:24:280:24:32

It was Gary Oldman's portrayal

of Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour

0:24:320:24:34

which landed him the BAFTA for Best

Actor.

0:24:340:24:36

He said the awards was a "tremendous

honour", and used his acceptance

0:24:360:24:39

speech to pay tribute to his ex-wife

Lesley Manville, who was nominated

0:24:390:24:42

for best supporting actress.

0:24:420:24:43

London-born Daniel Kaluuya scooped

the Rising Star Award

0:24:430:24:45

for his leading role in the thriller

Get Out.

0:24:450:24:47

Accepting the award,

the 28-year-old paid

0:24:470:24:48

tribute to his family

0:24:480:24:50

And I'd like to thank my mum.

0:24:510:24:53

My mum is the reason...

0:24:530:24:54

Levels...

0:24:540:24:55

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:24:550:25:05

Mum, mum,

you're the reason why I started,

0:25:110:25:12

the reason why I'm here and you're

the reason why

0:25:120:25:15

I keep going.

0:25:150:25:16

Do you understand?

0:25:160:25:17

Thank you for everything,

and I'd like to

0:25:170:25:19

thank this award...

0:25:190:25:20

This is yours.

0:25:200:25:21

Love, peace, let's get it.

0:25:210:25:24

We have been racking our brains and

we can't remember a time where this

0:25:240:25:28

same film wins those two categories,

a big winner.

Very unusual. They

0:25:280:25:33

invented that format so the British

film didn't miss out and they had

0:25:330:25:37

their own category. Sky fall has won

best British... The main film goes

0:25:370:25:48

to a more Hollywood film, if you

like. Unusually today, a film that

0:25:480:25:53

is about small-time America,

produced here by British producers

0:25:530:25:55

and by an Irish director has taken

best film. I think it is extremely

0:25:550:26:04

unusual. I'm slightly surprised

because I thought it was a film that

0:26:040:26:08

divided people but it united the

BAFTAs. It is a film that is very

0:26:080:26:13

divisive and away, deliberately so,

controversial, but not controversial

0:26:130:26:16

enough to put off the BAFTA voters.

One of the edgiest films they have

0:26:160:26:19

ever voted as their best picture.

We

said we were surprised if Francis

0:26:190:26:24

McDonald hadn't come away with that

prize, the same with Gary Oldman.

He

0:26:240:26:31

did, for Winston Churchill in

Darkest Hour. He ended up thanking

0:26:310:26:35

Sir Winston Churchill in his

acceptance speech but the standard

0:26:350:26:38

he took -- stand he took, this stand

against the march of Hitler and the

0:26:380:26:46

speeches he gave in that movie have

been so well received by everyone. I

0:26:460:26:50

hear he has been getting a standing

ovation is up and down the land for

0:26:500:26:54

those speeches. I suppose it really

struck a chord this year. There's a

0:26:540:27:00

freedom there, a unity that those

speeches are brought together. Let's

0:27:000:27:04

face it, it's a fantastic

performance from Gary Oldman. I

0:27:040:27:07

always think doing Churchill is a

bit of a turn. Brian Cox had a go,

0:27:070:27:12

Hardy, everyone has their favourite

Churchill and the casting of Gary

0:27:120:27:15

Oldman when it was announced a few

years ago, people were

0:27:150:27:18

flabbergasted. How could this guy

who has been Dracula, the guy in

0:27:180:27:23

Lyon and was a punk in Sid vicious,

how could he played Winston

0:27:230:27:28

Churchill? He prays him with the

same spirit he put towards all

0:27:280:27:32

those, a maverick defiant spirit. I

think of all the actors in the last

0:27:320:27:37

30 years from that generation that

came up from the 80s, he is flying

0:27:370:27:40

the flag for working-class actors in

Britain and always has done. I think

0:27:400:27:43

he is a very inspirational winner.

His first BAFTA.

0:27:430:27:55

The weather now.

0:27:550:27:57

The weather now.

0:27:570:28:00

The sunshine was more limited today.

A lot of cloud spinning in from the

0:28:000:28:04

west, bringing some rain and

drizzle. Upstream, we do see if you

0:28:040:28:08

breaks in the cloud. Those could

emerge across and western parts of

0:28:080:28:12

the UK tomorrow. A change of

fortunes, perhaps. In those breaks

0:28:120:28:16

in the cloud, we have this milder

air and those temperatures could

0:28:160:28:20

push up towards 13 degrees or so. A

mild night tonight. Still one or two

0:28:200:28:25

breaks towards East Anglia, but this

cloud is continuing to push slowly

0:28:250:28:29

eastwards. Still some more rain and

drizzle. There becomes lighter and

0:28:290:28:33

more patchy.

0:28:330:28:43

Quite a bit of mist and hill fog in

that rain and typical temperatures,

0:28:500:28:53

5-7d. No frost by Monday morning.

Instead, two weather fronts getting

0:28:530:28:55

close to the UK. Most of the rain

coming on the first one. It is

0:28:550:28:58

between those two weather fronts we

will get the breaks in the cloud and

0:28:580:29:01

a milder air. A change of fortunes

because eastern Scotland and eastern

0:29:010:29:03

England likely to be dull and rap

with some rain and drizzle. Further

0:29:030:29:06

west, a little sunshine possible,

particularly around coastal areas

0:29:060:29:08

and perhaps in Northern Ireland

ahead of the next weather front

0:29:080:29:10

bringing the next band of rain later

on. But a mild day. 10-13d, cooler

0:29:100:29:13

in the east where we have that rain

and drizzle. That will still be

0:29:130:29:16

around overnight tomorrow night. You

see the two main areas of rain

0:29:160:29:20

converging, the cloud breaks later

in Northern Ireland and across

0:29:200:29:25

western Scotland, perhaps North

Wales in north-west England. Turning

0:29:250:29:28

a little chilly, not too cold

because there will be a breeze.

0:29:280:29:31

Milder underneath the cloud as we

head into Tuesday. Probably a chilly

0:29:310:29:37

wind blowing across the Midlands and

East Anglia. Some outbreaks of rain

0:29:370:29:42

Tuesday afternoon, that tends to

slowly Peter out. In the West, more

0:29:420:29:47

likely to see some sunshine at

times. Still some decent

0:29:470:29:52

temperatures, 10-11d, but colder in

eastern England. Things will be

0:29:520:29:56

drying up because high pressure is

building in across the UK. It will

0:29:560:29:59

keep these weather fronts at bay.

This is quite a change of type. We

0:29:590:30:03

haven't seen much high pressure over

the past few weeks. It does mean

0:30:030:30:07

after a mild start to the week,

it'll gradually turn a little

0:30:070:30:11

colder, but with the high building

on it should become dry in most

0:30:110:30:15

areas. Goodbye.
