Good evening.

0:00:210:00:22

Police have identified

more than 200 witnesses,

0:00:220:00:24

and are examining around 240 pieces

of evidence, in the investigation

0:00:240:00:28

into the attempted murder,

of a former Russian spy

0:00:280:00:31

and his daughter.

0:00:310:00:34

The Home Secretary, Amber Rudd,

chaired a meeting of

0:00:340:00:36

the Government's emergency committee

Cobra today, and says

0:00:360:00:39

investigators are being given

all the resources they need.

0:00:390:00:42

Sergei Skripal and his daughter

Yulia are still in a critical

0:00:420:00:45

condition, and the officer who tried

to help them after the nerve

0:00:450:00:48

agent attack, Nick Bailey,

remains in hospital.

0:00:480:00:50

Dominic Casciani reports.

0:00:500:00:57

A vehicle designed to save lives,

now posing a grave risk to the

0:00:570:01:01

public. This was the scene at

Salisbury and blends station this

0:01:010:01:05

evening as chemical warfare

specialists began the latest phase

0:01:050:01:09

of this investigation. More than 180

military personnel now helping at

0:01:090:01:14

counter-terrorism investigation that

already includes more than 250

0:01:140:01:17

detectives. This is the second major

military operation in Salisbury in

0:01:170:01:21

24 hours. Last night we saw them

take away a police car from the

0:01:210:01:25

hospital. Today they have taken away

ambulances which were potentially

0:01:250:01:30

contaminated last Sunday. Everybody

is watching and waiting to see when

0:01:300:01:33

this emergency will end. The nation

is watching and waiting to find out

0:01:330:01:37

who is behind this crime. Today, the

second meeting any week for the

0:01:370:01:42

government's emergency committee,

Cobra.

This investigation is focused

0:01:420:01:48

on making sure we keep people safe

as a priority. That is what the

0:01:480:01:52

Cobra meeting was about. And also

making sure that we collect all the

0:01:520:01:56

evidence, so when it comes to

attribution we will be absolutely

0:01:560:02:00

clear where it Lee.

The pizzeria

where Sergei and Yulia Skripal dined

0:02:000:02:12

is now quarantined. Today, the

city's main cemetery was also closed

0:02:120:02:16

to the public as officers examined

the graves of Mr Skripal's wife and

0:02:160:02:20

son. Today there was no change in

his condition or that of his

0:02:200:02:23

daughter. Still critical, still in

intensive care. Wiltshire police

0:02:230:02:30

released a statement on behalf of

the third victim of the nerve agent,

0:02:300:02:33

Detective Sergeant Nick Bailey. He

said he and his family are hugely

0:02:330:02:38

grateful for all the messages of

support from the public, and

0:02:380:02:40

colleagues from the police family.

He was part of a group of officers

0:02:400:02:45

and other emergency service

colleagues who dealt with the

0:02:450:02:47

initial incident. He doesn't

consider himself a hero, he was

0:02:470:02:50

really doing his job, a job he loves

and is immensely proud of. Salisbury

0:02:500:02:55

is a proud city. And trying to get

on with normal life. Shoppers in the

0:02:550:03:02

market and officials drawing up plan

to help businesses affected by the

0:03:020:03:05

police operation. But with more

barriers going up tonight at the

0:03:050:03:08

park with the emergency began, it

may be weeks yet before it is all

0:03:080:03:12

over.

Those barriers I talked about have

0:03:120:03:17

gone away again. It looks like

police found it a bit of a struggle

0:03:170:03:21

to fit them tonight. Let's see what

happens. That shows how intensive

0:03:210:03:26

this operation is. An awful lot of

activity, a lot of painstaking work.

0:03:260:03:30

At some point this city will be free

of this investigation. At that point

0:03:300:03:34

it will go behind the scenes as

counterterrorism specialists pick up

0:03:340:03:40

this evidential thread. Ultimately

they will have two provide some

0:03:400:03:43

answers as to who was behind this

crime.

0:03:430:03:47

Dominic, thank you.

Dominic Oceania.

0:03:470:03:48

The Education Secretary says

he wants to resolve a recruitment

0:03:480:03:51

crisis in England's schools,

by cutting the work

0:03:510:03:53

load of teachers.

0:03:530:03:55

Damian Hinds told a conference

of head teachers that the government

0:03:550:03:58

would "strip away" pointless tasks,

so their staff can "focus

0:03:580:04:01

on what actually matters".

0:04:010:04:02

Here's Elaine Dunkley.

0:04:020:04:07

This is Passmores Academy in Essex.

0:04:070:04:10

Like so many schools,

it's struggling to recruit teachers.

0:04:100:04:13

Classrooms around the country

are now relying

0:04:130:04:16

on agency supply teachers

to cover permanent vacancies.

0:04:160:04:20

The government keeps missing targets

about recruitment into the

0:04:200:04:26

possession -- profession. We have

4000 less teachers than we need,

0:04:260:04:30

especially in the key subjects,

English, maths, science.

The issue

0:04:300:04:35

is not just about recruiting new

staff but stopping existing teachers

0:04:350:04:38

from leaving the profession. In the

next five years, pupil numbers are

0:04:380:04:42

expected to increase in England,

along with pressures and demands on

0:04:420:04:44

teachers.

0:04:440:04:54

Planning, marking, assessments. The

actual teaching part of it took of

0:04:550:05:00

the least time. That was one major

factor. I got out of the education

0:05:000:05:06

system thinking and feeling the

whole thing needed to be turned on

0:05:060:05:08

its head.

Today at a conference for

headteachers, the government

0:05:080:05:11

promised to address these issues.

For the rest of this parliament they

0:05:110:05:17

will be no new additional statutory

tests for assessment for primary

0:05:170:05:20

schools, no further changes to the

national curriculum. And no more

0:05:200:05:25

reform of GCSEs and A-levels.

Stability in schools was the

0:05:250:05:31

message. The government accepting it

needed to work harder to relieve

0:05:310:05:35

pressures in the classroom.

0:05:350:05:39

Monitoring groups in Syria say more

than a thousand people have been

0:05:390:05:42

killed since government forces

stepped up their bombardment

0:05:420:05:44

of Eastern Ghouta three weeks ago.

0:05:440:05:45

Soldiers loyal to President Assad

are reported to have made

0:05:450:05:48

significant advances,

and are believed to have cut off

0:05:480:05:50

the biggest town in the area, Douma,

as well as isolating another.

0:05:500:05:58

Talks have been taking place

in Brussels between European Union

0:05:580:06:01

and US trade representatives,

over President Trump's plans

0:06:010:06:02

to impose higher tariffs on steel

and aluminium imports.

0:06:020:06:05

The EU described the discussions

as "frank", but said it wasn't clear

0:06:050:06:07

whether Europe would be exempt

from the proposals.

0:06:070:06:10

Further talks are

planned next week.

0:06:100:06:18

With news of Ireland being crowned

Six Nations champions,

0:06:180:06:21

and all the sport, here's

Olly Foster at the BBC Sport Centre.

0:06:210:06:26

Many things, Clive.

0:06:260:06:27

Ireland have won the Six Nations

Championship with a game to spare.

0:06:270:06:30

That's after their bonus point win

against Scotland that England failed

0:06:300:06:33

to match, despite beating France

in the last few minutes.

0:06:330:06:39

They lost 22-16 to France.

0:06:390:06:42

From Dublin, here's our sports

correspondent, Joe Wilson.

0:06:420:06:45

This afternoon we didn't know how it

would stop, only where it would

0:06:450:06:48

start. The Aviva Stadium, Dublin.

Scotland waiting. This way.

0:06:480:06:56

Scotland's style fast and loose.

When it fails, it can and tries to

0:06:560:07:01

the opposition. Jacob Stockdale for

Ireland. They give to safely

0:07:010:07:03

delivered. Then came his sixth of

this Six Nations. Earlier in the

0:07:030:07:12

second have a Scotland move finally

worked, Blair Kinghorn scoring. But

0:07:120:07:18

Sean Cronin's dive over the line for

Ireland was more significant, their

0:07:180:07:22

fourth try, which not only ensured

victory, Ireland had a bonus point

0:07:220:07:28

as well. 28, eight in Dublin. After

Paris. Elliot Daly's monster penalty

0:07:280:07:33

was impressive but England needed

more. They needed to match Ireland's

0:07:330:07:36

result. They needed for tries.

England were defending desperately.

0:07:360:07:41

A high tackle from Anthony Watson,

sin bin for him, France awarded a

0:07:410:07:44

penalty try. Things were not going

to plan. Understatement. A try came.

0:07:440:07:51

A good one. Not enough. France won,

sordid Ireland.

0:07:510:08:01

Just to confirm, England can't

catcher Ireland. Nobody can catch

0:08:010:08:06

Ireland. There is intense

satisfaction in Dublin this evening.

0:08:060:08:12

But also anticipation because next

weekend they could win the grand

0:08:120:08:16

slam by beating England at

Twickenham. I think some hasty

0:08:160:08:19

travel plans are being made all

around me right now.

0:08:190:08:22

I'd imagine there will be.

Joe Wilson, many thanks. West Ham

0:08:220:08:29

are investigating the pitch

invasions and crowd disturbances

0:08:290:08:31

that marred their defeat to Burnley.

Elsewhere in the Premier League,

0:08:310:08:36

Marcus Rashford scored both

Manchester United goals as they beat

0:08:360:08:40

Liverpool at Old Trafford. They

remain second, 13 points behind

0:08:400:08:44

Manchester City, who don't play

until Monday night.

0:08:440:08:46

Patrick Geary reports. From the age

of industry to the age of the

0:08:460:08:50

selfie, Manchester and Liverpool

have quarrelled. The row started

0:08:500:08:54

about trade. These days these teams

rely on imports. Jose Mourinho opted

0:08:540:08:59

for some local produce. Marcus

Rashford of Wythenshawe. Look what

0:08:590:09:04

it meant for him to score. Rashford

is England's great hope but hadn't

0:09:040:09:08

started a league game for his club

this year. He can consider this a

0:09:080:09:12

chance taken. After the break,

Liverpool started to fight back and

0:09:120:09:16

felt they should have been given a

hand. No penalty though. They did

0:09:160:09:20

get some luck. An own goal macro. A

mix-up to set off a big finish. The

0:09:200:09:27

pressure mounted. Liverpool corner.

Mo Salah over the bar. United know

0:09:270:09:36

the title is heading across town to

Manchester City. This was a day for

0:09:360:09:40

their bit of Manchester.

Patrick Geary, BBC News.

0:09:400:09:43

Great Britain have their first medal

at the Winter Paralympics in

0:09:430:09:46

South Korea.

0:09:460:09:47

Teenager Millie Knight

with her guide, Brett Wild, took

0:09:470:09:49

silver on the opening day

of competition in the visually

0:09:490:09:51

impaired downhill

skiing in Pyeongchang.

0:09:510:09:52

Slovakia won gold, but Knight

described their second place

0:09:520:09:55

as "the best feeling in the world".

0:09:550:09:56

Lots more on the BBC sport website,

including all the Winter Paralympic

0:09:560:10:00

results, and also details of the one

0:10:000:10:02

day series win for England's

cricketers against New Zealand.

0:10:020:10:07

That's all for now. Clive. Ollie

Foster there.

0:10:070:10:09

That's it.

0:10:090:10:10

There's more throughout the evening

on the BBC News Channel,

0:10:100:10:13

and I'll be back with the late

News at Ten.
