Theresa May says she has 'absolute faith' in Britain's nuclear

:00:08.:00:09.

deterrent, despite claims of a test firing going wrong.

:00:10.:00:17.

A Trident missile, like this, apparently veered off course last

:00:18.:00:20.

June, just weeks before a crucial vote on the defence system, by MPs.

:00:21.:00:24.

The Prime Minster will hold talks with Donald Trump

:00:25.:00:26.

at the White House this week, the first foreign leader

:00:27.:00:29.

Andy Murray crashes out of the Australian Open,

:00:30.:00:32.

Choose life, choose Facebook, Twente, Instagram, and hope that

:00:33.:00:45.

someone, somewhere cares. It helped define the 1990s,

:00:46.:00:48.

now Trainspotting returns Theresa May says she has 'absolute

:00:49.:00:53.

faith' in the UK's Trident nuclear deterrent system,

:00:54.:01:14.

despite claims an unarmed missile veered off course during

:01:15.:01:19.

a test last summer. today, the Prime Minister declined

:01:20.:01:21.

to say whether she knew of the incident, before a crucial

:01:22.:01:25.

vote on the future of Trident, Our Defence Correspondent

:01:26.:01:28.

Jonathan Beale reports. This is what the launch of a Trident

:01:29.:01:42.

missile looks like. Last June, the Royal Navy carried out what it calls

:01:43.:01:48.

a routine on armed test launch from HMS Vengeance. But it now appears

:01:49.:01:51.

something went wrong. HMS Cowan vengeance was about 200 miles off

:01:52.:01:58.

the Florida coast. It was going to fire the missile around 500 miles

:01:59.:02:01.

across the Atlantic but a malfunction occurred during its

:02:02.:02:05.

flight. Yet just weeks later, Theresa May was asking MPs to vote

:02:06.:02:11.

on spending ?40 billion to renew the weapons system. Mr Speaker, we have

:02:12.:02:16.

waited long enough, it is time to get on with building the next

:02:17.:02:21.

generation of our nuclear deterrent. Today she was asked four times if

:02:22.:02:26.

she knew then if they had been a problem. The issue we were talking

:02:27.:02:30.

about in the House of Commons was a very serious issue, whether or not

:02:31.:02:33.

we should renew Trident, whether we should look to the future and have a

:02:34.:02:36.

replacement Trident. That is what we are talking about in the House of

:02:37.:02:39.

Commons, that's what the House of Commons voted for. I believe in

:02:40.:02:43.

defending our country, Jeremy Corbyn voted against it. Prime Minister,

:02:44.:02:51.

did you know? There are tests that take place all the time regularly

:02:52.:02:54.

for our nuclear deterrence. What we were talking about in that debate

:02:55.:03:00.

that took place... Not going to get an answer to this. We understand the

:03:01.:03:05.

Prime Minister chose not to inform Parliament about this, and it has

:03:06.:03:09.

come out through the media some months later. It is a pretty

:03:10.:03:12.

catastrophic error when a missile goes on the wrong direction. While

:03:13.:03:16.

the Ministry of Defence has publicised past successful test

:03:17.:03:20.

launches of the Trident missile, in this instance is they say they will

:03:21.:03:25.

give no further details of the incident in June because of national

:03:26.:03:29.

security reasons. In a statement, they would only say that HMS

:03:30.:03:35.

Vengeance and her crew were successfully tested and verified,

:03:36.:03:39.

but significantly officials do not deny that there was a problem with

:03:40.:03:43.

the missile or that it might have veered off course. The former head

:03:44.:03:46.

of the Navy says ministers should have come clean. The missiles have

:03:47.:03:51.

been fired now since 1990 regularly, and they work overtime. This clearly

:03:52.:03:55.

was a problem, that's why you have tests, to jacket. If there were some

:03:56.:04:00.

minor problem I don't think it would have made any difference at all, but

:04:01.:04:04.

by not publicising it, it immediately makes you think are they

:04:05.:04:07.

hiding something, is there something wrong? It was a stupid thing to do.

:04:08.:04:12.

The government still says it has absolute confidence in Britain's

:04:13.:04:16.

nuclear weapons system. But this incident does raise questions about

:04:17.:04:17.

its reliability. The Prime Minister has also

:04:18.:04:22.

confirmed today that she'll visit Washington for talks

:04:23.:04:24.

with President Trump on Friday, the first world leader to meet him

:04:25.:04:26.

since his inauguration. Mrs May said she would build

:04:27.:04:32.

on the special relationship between Britain and America,

:04:33.:04:34.

but would challenge any opinions Here's our Political

:04:35.:04:37.

Correspondent Iain Watson. On the surface, the special

:04:38.:04:46.

relationship appears almost intimate. Britain's Prime Minister

:04:47.:04:49.

will be the first foreign leader to meet the new president. At that

:04:50.:04:54.

relationship with Donald Trump may have to become extra special after

:04:55.:04:57.

Brexit, as Britain searches for new global trade deals. The special

:04:58.:05:02.

relationship between the UK and the US has been strong for many years.

:05:03.:05:06.

We will have opportunity to talk about our future trading

:05:07.:05:08.

relationship but also some of the world challenges that we all face.

:05:09.:05:12.

He and people around him are also spoken about the importance of a

:05:13.:05:15.

trade arrangement with the United Kingdom, and that that is something

:05:16.:05:19.

they are looking to talk to us about at an early stage. It all sounds

:05:20.:05:23.

positive, but the two leaders will have to square this circle. I want

:05:24.:05:30.

this to be a truly global Britain. America first! America first! The

:05:31.:05:34.

President's critics say that his emphasis on protecting American

:05:35.:05:38.

drops might make things difficult with the UK -- jobs. Recent figures

:05:39.:05:43.

show that we sell more to America than we buy. We saw them ?88 billion

:05:44.:05:47.

worth of goods and services and brought in just ?52 billion worth of

:05:48.:05:51.

imports. The reverse is true with the EU, we buy more goods from them

:05:52.:05:56.

the missile of ours. But you can see our business with EU partners is

:05:57.:06:00.

worth far more than our trade with the United States. No trade

:06:01.:06:04.

agreement with America, however ambitious, can replace or match what

:06:05.:06:08.

we are potentially going to lose on our own doorstep in Europe. It is

:06:09.:06:12.

well known here in Downing Street that the team around Theresa May

:06:13.:06:15.

were not necessarily Donald Trump's biggest fans when he was a

:06:16.:06:20.

candidate, but as soon as he was elected, the officials were

:06:21.:06:23.

dispatched to the States to try to mend bridges quicker than

:06:24.:06:27.

construction workers on overtime. But now the Prime Minister insisted

:06:28.:06:32.

that she still isn't afraid to raise really difficult issues with the new

:06:33.:06:37.

leader of the free world. Yesterday, millions of women across the world

:06:38.:06:41.

and thousands here in London marched against a president they see as

:06:42.:06:45.

disrespect for. Theresa May was a little coy of what she would say

:06:46.:06:49.

face-to-face with Donald Trump, but she argued her own presence in

:06:50.:06:52.

Washington made something of a statement in itself. I think the

:06:53.:06:55.

bigger statement that will be made about the role of women is the fact

:06:56.:07:00.

that I will be there as a female Prime Minister, Prime Minister of

:07:01.:07:03.

the United Kingdom, talking to him directly about the interest that we

:07:04.:07:07.

share. In the 80s, Mrs Thatcher and Ronald Reagan had a close and candid

:07:08.:07:12.

relationship, while Donald Trump reportedly calls Theresa May his

:07:13.:07:17.

Maggie, it is likely to take a lot of diplomacy and good grace to form

:07:18.:07:18.

a similar partnership. Let's speak to our Deputy Political

:07:19.:07:20.

Editor, John Pienaar, John, Theresa May, she will have

:07:21.:07:29.

preferred the headlines to be about her meeting Donald Trump later this

:07:30.:07:32.

week, rather than this controversy over Trident. Yes, she would. This

:07:33.:07:37.

story on Trident isn't just awkward, it's embarrassing. Ministers can

:07:38.:07:41.

argue there is no realistic chance of the Navy launching a nuclear

:07:42.:07:45.

strike against Moscow, or for that matter Disneyland, by accident. They

:07:46.:07:49.

can point out that MPs, most of them, support the nuclear deterrent,

:07:50.:07:53.

that is true, but the way that MPs were kept in the dark head of such a

:07:54.:07:57.

crucial vote on Trident, it would be hard for the opposition tomorrow to

:07:58.:08:00.

make the government look and feel uncomfortable, and even looked

:08:01.:08:02.

rather evasive when they would rather be talking about the coming

:08:03.:08:06.

American trip. As far as that trip is concerned, we don't know how the

:08:07.:08:09.

Trump presidency will play out but we do know something of his

:08:10.:08:12.

character and style, and given that it is hard to see Theresa May

:08:13.:08:16.

exercising the same sort of influence over Donald Trump that

:08:17.:08:19.

Margaret Thatcher did over Ronald Reagan back in the 1980s. Some will

:08:20.:08:23.

worry in the party that the party could be a barrister, the government

:08:24.:08:26.

could be a barrister by this relationship. But then

:08:27.:08:30.

predictability, that was a fixture of politics, and now that seems a

:08:31.:08:34.

long time ago. Thank you for that, John.

:08:35.:08:36.

The White House has vowed to fight the news media "tooth and nail,"

:08:37.:08:39.

over what officials see as unfair attacks on President Trump.

:08:40.:08:42.

The new President has taken issue with estimates

:08:43.:08:44.

of the size of the crowd at his inauguration on Friday.

:08:45.:08:48.

He claims at least a million people attended; aerial photographs appear

:08:49.:08:51.

As our North America Editor Jon Sopel reports,

:08:52.:08:57.

The weightiest issues on the planet were discussed at Donald Trump's

:08:58.:09:07.

inaugural address, but what the president is in a white rage about

:09:08.:09:10.

suggestions that the crowds for him were not as big as they were for

:09:11.:09:15.

Barack Obama eight years ago, even though the evidence is

:09:16.:09:19.

incontrovertible, as these two photos, each taken 45 minutes before

:09:20.:09:22.

the all migration started, make plain. -- the inauguration started.

:09:23.:09:27.

Last night, journalists were summoned to the most extraordinary

:09:28.:09:31.

White House briefing to be told they were lying. This was the largest

:09:32.:09:36.

audience to ever witness and inauguration, period. This kind of

:09:37.:09:43.

dishonesty in the media, there has been a lot of talk in the media

:09:44.:09:45.

about the response bulleted the whole Donald Trump accountable, and

:09:46.:09:49.

I'm here to tell you that it goes to waste. We are going to the press

:09:50.:09:52.

accountable as well. No questions were allowed. Earlier in the day

:09:53.:10:01.

from Donald Trump, on a visit to CIA headquarters, a similar attack,

:10:02.:10:04.

though this time the target different. As you know, I have a

:10:05.:10:09.

running war with the media. They are among the most dishonest human

:10:10.:10:13.

beings on earth. They sort of made it sound like I had a feud with the

:10:14.:10:20.

intelligence community. But, hang on a minute, how do you reconcile the

:10:21.:10:24.

suggestion that it is all got up by the journalists when he treated this

:10:25.:10:29.

11 days ago? He accused the intelligence services of leaking

:10:30.:10:32.

material against him, and suggested their behaviour made it seem as

:10:33.:10:34.

though we were living in Nazi Germany. And today, key lieutenants

:10:35.:10:40.

were intensifying their attacks. There is an obsession by the media

:10:41.:10:45.

to delegitimise this president, and we are not going to sit around and

:10:46.:10:50.

let it happen. Our press secretary gave alternative acts to that.

:10:51.:10:54.

Alternative facts are not facts, they are. Is. Part of this can be

:10:55.:10:59.

put down the Donald Trump's and session with the size of his crowd,

:11:00.:11:05.

but there is deliberate strategy here too. It seems the White House

:11:06.:11:08.

wants to undermine the conventional media so that Donald Trump is able

:11:09.:11:12.

to present his own version of reality through Twitter and Facebook

:11:13.:11:16.

without any mediation, and said to the public, who do you believe, me

:11:17.:11:23.

or the establishment media? And while this battle plays itself out,

:11:24.:11:29.

the satirists are making hay. This is their take on what Vladimir Putin

:11:30.:11:34.

makes of it all. I am glad to see so many people showed up to your

:11:35.:11:39.

inauguration. Oh, wait, that's the women's March. Here is the

:11:40.:11:44.

inauguration. Jon Sopel, BBC News, Washington.

:11:45.:11:47.

The authorities in Israel have approved the construction of more

:11:48.:11:50.

than 500 homes for settlers in occupied East Jerusalem.

:11:51.:11:53.

The decision was delayed until Donald Trump took

:11:54.:11:55.

power in Washington, with the new President promising

:11:56.:11:56.

He's due to speak to the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

:11:57.:12:02.

At least 39 people have been killed, and many more injured,

:12:03.:12:08.

after a train derailed in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh.

:12:09.:12:12.

Police are investigating claims the track may

:12:13.:12:14.

It's thought a number of people remain trapped in the wreckage.

:12:15.:12:25.

Here, many councils in England are taking too long to determine

:12:26.:12:32.

patients's need, a consumer group which monitors health services says

:12:33.:12:35.

several local authorities take far longer than the recommended six

:12:36.:12:36.

weeks. Smitha Mundasad is at St Thomas'

:12:37.:12:39.

Hosiptal for us this evening. In recent weeks we have heard of

:12:40.:12:48.

Accident Emergency departments buckling under when the pressure,

:12:49.:12:52.

with hospitals unable to admit patients because sometimes on their

:12:53.:12:54.

wards are people who could have gone home, if only they had got the

:12:55.:12:58.

social care they needed. Now, health watch England says there is another

:12:59.:13:03.

side to this problem. It says that local councils are taking too long

:13:04.:13:07.

to assess whether people are eligible for extra support at home.

:13:08.:13:12.

Its own investigation found the data is patchy, but people on average

:13:13.:13:17.

weighted between two and 52 days, and in one case, someone waited two

:13:18.:13:21.

years. They say that isn't good enough. Now, the local government

:13:22.:13:25.

ombudsman says that actually between four and six weeks is reasonable,

:13:26.:13:30.

but that's not mandatory, and the local government Association says it

:13:31.:13:33.

needs more money. The Department of Health says it has put in 900

:13:34.:13:37.

million extra pounds over the next two years for adult social care, and

:13:38.:13:40.

will challenge local authorities if they don't do their job in a timely

:13:41.:13:42.

fashion. Thank you for that. With all the sport,

:13:43.:13:46.

here's Hugh Woozencroft Andy Murray is out of

:13:47.:13:48.

the Australian Open. The number one seed was beaten

:13:49.:13:57.

by the world number 50 - Germany's Mischa Zverev

:13:58.:14:00.

in the fourth round in Melbourne, Andy Murray's leaves Melbourne,

:14:01.:14:08.

having missed an opportunity. With Novak Djokovic outcome of the draw

:14:09.:14:12.

had opened up for him. His path had been blocked by an unexpected

:14:13.:14:16.

obstacle. He played extremely well, especially at the end of the match.

:14:17.:14:20.

He came up with some great stuff. He deserved to win. Tough one to lose.

:14:21.:14:25.

Mischa Zverev is not even the best player in his family. His younger

:14:26.:14:28.

brother, Alex, is said to be the one to watch and saw this coming. After

:14:29.:14:32.

losing the first set against a player ranked almost 50 places below

:14:33.:14:36.

him, Murray tried to repair the damage will stop he levelled the

:14:37.:14:39.

match but the German was proving an awkward opponent. His game plan was

:14:40.:14:44.

to serve and volley, an old-fashioned approach. Here, it was

:14:45.:14:47.

brilliantly effective. Eventually Murray ran out of ideas and games.

:14:48.:14:52.

Five times he has been a runner-up in Melbourne but this year's open

:14:53.:14:56.

has been anything but predictable. One British player who has defied

:14:57.:14:59.

expectations is Dan Evans. Playing in the fourth round of grand slam

:15:00.:15:04.

for the first time, he made a promising start against Jo-Wilfried

:15:05.:15:07.

Tsonga, but the 12th seed's heavy hitting took a toll, and Evans was

:15:08.:15:11.

eventually overpowered in four sets. He may have lost here, but Evans has

:15:12.:15:15.

won something important in Australia: respect.

:15:16.:15:17.

In the Premier League, ten-man Arsenal needed an injury

:15:18.:15:19.

time penalty to beat Burnley 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium.

:15:20.:15:21.

The visitors drew level with 93 minutes on the clock,

:15:22.:15:24.

A frustrated Arsene Wenger was sent to the stands for his reaction.

:15:25.:15:31.

time, his team were awarded their own spot-kick.

:15:32.:15:35.

And Alexis Sanchez stayed calm to secure all three

:15:36.:15:37.

In the early kick-off, Southampton beat Champions,

:15:38.:15:47.

Leicester, 3-0, and the match between Chelsea and Hull

:15:48.:15:50.

No Premiership football this weekend in Scotland

:15:51.:15:57.

Scott Sinclair helped Celtic reach the fifth round with a 3-0

:15:58.:16:04.

Earlier, Hearts were held to a draw by Championship side Raith Rovers.

:16:05.:16:10.

Britain's Dave Ryding has finished in second place

:16:11.:16:12.

in the World Cup slalom race in Kitzbuhl in Austria.

:16:13.:16:16.

He was quickest after the first run but eventually beaten into second

:16:17.:16:19.

place by home favourite Marcel Heerscher.

:16:20.:16:26.

No Brit has won an Alpine World Cup Ski Race in the 50

:16:27.:16:29.

The last on the podium was Konrad Bartelski, back in 1981.

:16:30.:16:32.

That is all the sport for now. Back to you.

:16:33.:16:36.

Now to a film that defined a generation.

:16:37.:16:38.

'Trainspotting,' made stars of the original cast

:16:39.:16:40.

including Ewan McGregor, and now, more than 20 years on,

:16:41.:16:43.

they're back, and Colin Paterson is at the world premiere,

:16:44.:16:45.

It is a sequel that has been talked about for more than 15 years, but

:16:46.:17:01.

T2: Trainspotting is finally here. There is the director, Danny Boyle.

:17:02.:17:05.

The cast have been working on the orange carpets here, Robert Carlyle,

:17:06.:17:10.

Jonny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremner and Ewan McGregor, who told me earlier

:17:11.:17:13.

today that until the first day of filming last summer, before of them

:17:14.:17:16.

had not been in the same room for more than 20 years. -- the four of

:17:17.:17:22.

them had not been in the same room. Choose life, choose a job, choose a

:17:23.:17:28.

career... Trainspotting was the defining film of mid-90s cool

:17:29.:17:31.

Britannia than stop the movie poster was on students's walls, the

:17:32.:17:35.

soundtrack in their CD players. It dealt with addiction, headedness and

:17:36.:17:39.

friendship, and more than 20 years later, the gang is back together. So

:17:40.:17:45.

what you are looking at is that. We met the director Danny Boyle where

:17:46.:17:49.

it all began. We implied they rushed straight from Princes Street where

:17:50.:17:52.

they wheel being chased by store detectives, onto this road and then

:17:53.:17:56.

rent and gets hit by a car. So what have you been up to the 20 years?

:17:57.:18:02.

Since Trainspotting, Danny Boyle has dominated the Oscars with slum dog

:18:03.:18:06.

millionaire and trampled the 2012 Olympic opening ceremony, so why now

:18:07.:18:10.

for a sequel to the film which made his name? Since we made the first

:18:11.:18:15.

movie, people constantly come up to me and talk about the characters

:18:16.:18:18.

like they know them, and that made us think that we had, not an

:18:19.:18:22.

obligation, but kind of a duty to turn to it again. Trainspotting was

:18:23.:18:26.

about the cutting edge. Here are more than 20 years later. How do you

:18:27.:18:32.

make sure this is not the film equivalent of dad dancing? The truth

:18:33.:18:36.

is, you can't. Part of the responsible to what you are doing is

:18:37.:18:39.

embracing the fact that we were making a sequel to a story that

:18:40.:18:43.

people knew intimately, and how we would go into grown up with that

:18:44.:18:47.

story, really. What really captured the zeitgeist in the original was

:18:48.:18:51.

the famous choose live speech. Choose leisurewear and matching

:18:52.:18:56.

luggage. And it is back in an updated version. Choose Facebook,

:18:57.:19:00.

Twitter, Instagram, and hope someone, somewhere cares. Delivered

:19:01.:19:04.

once again by Ewan McGregor returning in the role of Renton.

:19:05.:19:09.
