Hello, it's Thursday, nine o'clock. I'm Victoria Derbyshire.

:00:00.:00:07.

Theresa May paves the way for more grammar schools,

:00:08.:00:12.

despite fierce opposition from many, including her chief

:00:13.:00:15.

He says the idea poor pupils will benefit is "tosh".

:00:16.:00:20.

Also, female students Telus sexual harassment at university is out of

:00:21.:00:34.

control, with more than half of them experiencing it. -- tell us. And

:00:35.:00:40.

Britain's Paralympians are hoping to beat their medal haul from London

:00:41.:00:48.

2012 as the Rio get under way. Sorry, that was my phone. It is on

:00:49.:00:53.

silent now! We will be previewing the action.

:00:54.:00:57.

Welcome to the programme, we're live until 11 this morning.

:00:58.:01:03.

We're also talking about the new iPhone 7.

:01:04.:01:05.

Lots of people are unhappy because Apple has ditched

:01:06.:01:07.

You have to buy some really expensive, daft looking headphones

:01:08.:01:19.

for it to work. We will find out how it affects its success.

:01:20.:01:22.

We'll also be talking to the headteacher who's sent more

:01:23.:01:24.

than 50 children home this week for flouting his school's

:01:25.:01:27.

This guy is straight. We will also talk to one of the girls he sent

:01:28.:01:37.

home and her dad. She is not in school again today. We will talk to

:01:38.:01:41.

them after ten o'clock. Do get in touch on all the stories

:01:42.:01:42.

we're talking about this morning - use the hashtag Victoria LIVE

:01:43.:01:45.

and if you text, you will be charged Theresa May has defended

:01:46.:01:49.

plans for new or expanded More Than This from Norman Smith.

:01:50.:02:02.

What has Theresa May said? This is Theresa May's big non-Brexit idea,

:02:03.:02:11.

reintroducing grammar schools, which she hopes will boost social mobility

:02:12.:02:15.

and give poorer families a better chance in life. You may see a

:02:16.:02:18.

kerfuffle behind me in a minute because the president of the

:02:19.:02:22.

European Council, Donald Tusk, is arriving for crucial Brexit talks

:02:23.:02:28.

with Theresa May. There he is now just going in. That is what is going

:02:29.:02:35.

on now. But the big moment now is really Theresa May deciding she

:02:36.:02:38.

wants to reintroduce grammar schools. Hugely controversial. There

:02:39.:02:46.

is Mrs May. Let's have a look. Mrs May, do you want to reintroduce

:02:47.:02:50.

grammar schools? RU in favour grammar schools? -- are you in

:02:51.:02:59.

favour? She has got other things to talk about. Let me just recap. It is

:03:00.:03:06.

a massive moment because grammar schools are hugely divisive. Many

:03:07.:03:09.

people view them as socially divisive. If you are thinking of

:03:10.:03:14.

really controversial policies, grammar schools are right up there

:03:15.:03:18.

with fox hunting and inheritance tax. It is a big move by Mrs May.

:03:19.:03:25.

What do Labour say about the possibility of more grammar schools

:03:26.:03:29.

are being introduced or current one is expanding? Not just Labour. There

:03:30.:03:36.

is massive opposition to the idea across the political spectrum, even

:03:37.:03:42.

in our own party, where there are a number of MPs and local council

:03:43.:03:46.

leaders who are deeply wary of the -- reintroducing grammar schools. It

:03:47.:03:50.

is not a given, actually, that Theresa May can do this. Many people

:03:51.:03:57.

will argue she does not have a mandate as it was not in the

:03:58.:04:02.

Conservative Party manifesto. Her officials are uncertain they can get

:04:03.:04:05.

this through the House of Lords. This really is a dramatic move by

:04:06.:04:11.

Mrs May. It is a high risk strategy. Although she thinks it plays to

:04:12.:04:18.

ambitions of encouraging social mobility, many people will take the

:04:19.:04:22.

view this is deeply conservative, harping back to the 50s and 60s. The

:04:23.:04:29.

danger is it is undermining the central pitch of her premiership.

:04:30.:04:33.

Thank you, Norman. We will talk more about grammar schools later. Really

:04:34.:04:37.

interesting to get a feeling of where you stand. Whatever your

:04:38.:04:41.

background, whether you consider yourself working class or

:04:42.:04:43.

middle-class, tell us what you think. We will talk about it later.

:04:44.:04:47.

Annita McVeigh's in the BBC newsroom with a summary

:04:48.:04:50.

A review into England's flood defences will be published today.

:04:51.:04:56.

It was commissioned by the government after record

:04:57.:05:00.

rainfall last winter caused flooding, resulting in more

:05:01.:05:02.

than ?1 billion worth of insurance claims.

:05:03.:05:04.

Wave after wave of huge storms rolled in last winter.

:05:05.:05:13.

The nightmare began in early December.

:05:14.:05:15.

Cumbria was hit with a month's rain in the space of a single day.

:05:16.:05:19.

The centre of Carlisle and homes around it quickly went under.

:05:20.:05:24.

From the air, I saw for myself the vast reach of the waters.

:05:25.:05:29.

Downstream in Cockermouth, the town's Christmas tree stood

:05:30.:05:32.

Over Christmas and then into the New Year, further deluges

:05:33.:05:40.

In York, military helicopters had to be deployed to help fix

:05:41.:05:46.

Rescue teams were praised for their bravery, in getting people

:05:47.:05:51.

to safety, but critics raised questions about the government's

:05:52.:05:55.

handling of the crisis - did you spend enough on defences?

:05:56.:06:01.

Were the computer models used to make forecasts up for the job?

:06:02.:06:08.

Would the government had done more if the same floods had hit southern

:06:09.:06:13.

Today there will be a look at how ministers will prepare the country

:06:14.:06:17.

for the next big storm as winter approaches.

:06:18.:06:21.

And we'll be bringing you more on that story

:06:22.:06:24.

on the Victoria Derbyshire programme once that report's published

:06:25.:06:26.

A leading member of a group representing hundreds of people

:06:27.:06:32.

who suffered abuse in children's homes run by Lambeth Council

:06:33.:06:35.

in south London, says he's lost faith in the independent inquiry

:06:36.:06:37.

Raymond Stevenson represents those who attended the Shirley Oaks home

:06:38.:06:44.

He says he no longer has confidence that the inquiry

:06:45.:06:50.

The Home Secretary has rejected a claim by the former chair

:06:51.:06:56.

of the inquiry that she'd been prevented from choosing

:06:57.:06:58.

The number of children seeking counselling

:06:59.:07:05.

because they are considering suicide has more than doubled in five years,

:07:06.:07:09.

Turbulent home lives, pressure at school and mental health

:07:10.:07:13.

conditions were all major triggers for suicidal thoughts,

:07:14.:07:16.

with children as young as 10 contacting the charity for help.

:07:17.:07:20.

Liam was very, very funny. He liked playing jokes on people.

:07:21.:07:26.

Six years ago, Aaron's younger brother Liam took his own life.

:07:27.:07:28.

I noticed he was acting differently, he was very quiet.

:07:29.:07:36.

You know, some of the things he was saying, he was asking me

:07:37.:07:40.

There was obviously something with him that he didn't feel

:07:41.:07:43.

comfortable speaking about, especially to someone like myself,

:07:44.:07:47.

we spoke about everything, but obviously on this occasion

:07:48.:07:49.

ChildLine says a child with suicidal thoughts is contacting their charity

:07:50.:07:55.

every 30 minutes and, although some children may call

:07:56.:07:58.

a number of times, that's nearly 20,000 calls in the past year.

:07:59.:08:02.

10% more than the previous year and more than double the figure

:08:03.:08:05.

This is one of 12 ChildLine call centres around the UK.

:08:06.:08:11.

Children calling in here, some as young as ten,

:08:12.:08:14.

say pressures at school, problems at home, bullying and abuse

:08:15.:08:17.

The Children's Commissioner for England recently highlighted

:08:18.:08:23.

a lack of adequate mental health services for children,

:08:24.:08:26.

and ChildLine believe this may be behind the increase

:08:27.:08:28.

What's very important, and the NSPCC is campaigning

:08:29.:08:35.

on this, is that the government invests resources into providing

:08:36.:08:39.

mental health support for children at a much earlier stage.

:08:40.:08:44.

The Government says it's investing a record ?1.4 billion to help young

:08:45.:08:48.

people before they reach crisis point.

:08:49.:08:52.

ChildLine said winter is a particularly difficult time

:08:53.:08:55.

for many of the children who contact them, but that the increasing calls

:08:56.:09:00.

could also mean that children are now more willing ask for help.

:09:01.:09:06.

Britain is to send another 100 soldiers to join a UN peacekeeping

:09:07.:09:10.

The country gained independence five years ago but has

:09:11.:09:14.

Three hundred British troops are already in the process

:09:15.:09:19.

of being deployed and the defence secretary, Michael Fallon,

:09:20.:09:22.

says the move will help to keep the UK safe.

:09:23.:09:26.

Eighty countries are taking part in a conference in London to discuss

:09:27.:09:28.

Three weeks before their first head-to-head TV debate,

:09:29.:09:33.

the two main American presidential candidates have taken part

:09:34.:09:36.

in question and answer sessions with military veterans.

:09:37.:09:41.

The Democrats' Hillary Clinton was forced to defend her judgement

:09:42.:09:43.

after being quizzed about the controversy

:09:44.:09:49.

over her deleted emails, while Republican candidate

:09:50.:09:51.

Donald Trump complimented Russia's President Putin and refused

:09:52.:09:52.

to disclose details of his heralded plan to defeat so-called

:09:53.:09:55.

Our Washington correspondent, Laura Bicker, reports.

:09:56.:10:01.

Hillary Clinton is dogged by one key question -

:10:02.:10:05.

She was repeatedly asked about her use

:10:06.:10:09.

of a private e-mail server while she was Secretary of State

:10:10.:10:13.

and whether that compromised classified material.

:10:14.:10:18.

It was a mistake to have a personal account.

:10:19.:10:21.

I would certainly not do it again. I make no excuses for it.

:10:22.:10:24.

Her years of experience are both a blessing and a curse.

:10:25.:10:28.

She has supported military action in the past, including

:10:29.:10:30.

She now says this was a mistake and her

:10:31.:10:36.

strategy to fight the Islamic State does not involve troops

:10:37.:10:39.

We need to wage this war against Isis in the air,

:10:40.:10:45.

on the ground and online in cyberspace.

:10:46.:10:48.

For Donald Trump there was no political

:10:49.:10:50.

record to question, just his own words.

:10:51.:10:53.

He once said he knew more than the generals when it came

:10:54.:10:56.

I think under the leadership of Barack Obama and

:10:57.:11:03.

Hillary Clinton the generals have been reduced to rubble.

:11:04.:11:05.

They have been reduced to a point where it's

:11:06.:11:07.

of Russia's President Vladimir Putin.

:11:08.:11:12.

I think when he calls me brilliant I'll take the compliment.

:11:13.:11:16.

This was the first chance for both candidates to form lines of attack

:11:17.:11:19.

The head-to-head debate is in just two weeks' time.

:11:20.:11:33.

Some news just coming in. Two men have been arrested in London today

:11:34.:11:40.

on suspicion of being involved in terrorism. The men, aged 19 and 20,

:11:41.:11:47.

were in bed -- arrested in west London as part of a preplanned

:11:48.:11:51.

intelligence operation by the Met police counterterrorist command.

:11:52.:11:53.

A parliamentary committee is to recommend that all MPs

:11:54.:11:55.

and Peers vacate both Houses of Parliament for six years

:11:56.:11:57.

Parts of the Palace of Westminster are so riddled with asbestos

:11:58.:12:03.

and ageing electrics, it's been said the building will be

:12:04.:12:06.

The report will suggest relocating to nearby offices, as early as 2020.

:12:07.:12:14.

The tech giant Apple unveiled its latest version of the iPhone

:12:15.:12:18.

The new device has attracted controversy for not having

:12:19.:12:21.

The launch of the iPhone 7, which is also water-resistant

:12:22.:12:26.

and has a two-lens camera, comes after a year of falling iPhone

:12:27.:12:31.

sales and a decline in Apple's share of the phone market.

:12:32.:12:35.

Madonna and Guy Ritchie have settled a court dispute over the custody

:12:36.:12:39.

A spokesman for the New York State court system said the pair had

:12:40.:12:46.

reached an agreement, but did not release any details.

:12:47.:12:48.

Guy Ritchie's lawyer said Rocco would continue to live

:12:49.:12:50.

Madonna and Ritchie married in 2000 and divorced eight years later.

:12:51.:12:59.

That's a summary of the latest BBC News - more at 9.30.

:13:00.:13:04.

In a moment, sexual harassment at university.

:13:05.:13:08.

If you've suffered, especially during freshers' week,

:13:09.:13:10.

Use the hashtag Victoria LIVE and If you text,

:13:11.:13:14.

you will be charged at the standard network rate. Let's get some sport.

:13:15.:13:17.

And the Paralympics is underway, what can we expect over

:13:18.:13:21.

Good morning. There were more superb scenes from Rio yesterday. The

:13:22.:13:31.

Paralympic Games was lost in brilliant fashion last night. We

:13:32.:13:36.

should expect a raft of success stories. 121 medals is the target

:13:37.:13:42.

for Britain. One more than they did in London. It was a vibrant and

:13:43.:13:46.

colourful scene at the Maracana Stadium. We should expect a party

:13:47.:13:52.

atmosphere over the next ten days. There was music, there was singing,

:13:53.:13:56.

there was dancing. Exactly what you would expect from Brazil. But the

:13:57.:14:03.

Brazilian Prime Minister was booed. Neither that nor a bit of rain

:14:04.:14:10.

spoiled the party. Lee Pearson, the equestrian rider, led the British

:14:11.:14:15.

team out. Amy Purdie, the American athlete, dancing. The doors once

:14:16.:14:21.

again open on what I'm sure will be a brilliant celebrant is not scored

:14:22.:14:25.

in Real. They won a competition sees the cyclist, Dame Sarah Storey,

:14:26.:14:30.

attempting to become the most successful female Paralympian. She

:14:31.:14:35.

will be out on the track just after nine o'clock tonight.

:14:36.:14:37.

Andy Murray's been knocked out of the US Open.

:14:38.:14:42.

Partly because of some really annoying sound system that kept

:14:43.:14:49.

making a noise in one set when he was on crucial points? Yes, and

:14:50.:14:55.

crucial points. A bit of a boy was coming out of the malfunctioning

:14:56.:15:00.

audio system. Andy said it distracted him. He did not blame it

:15:01.:15:03.

for his defeat. We know he is easily distracted. In Rio he was distracted

:15:04.:15:11.

by an overhead camera. Like most major sports, you find you are most

:15:12.:15:14.

distracted when you are not playing well. After the match it was the

:15:15.:15:19.

least upset we have seen him after an exit from a Grand Slam. Beaten by

:15:20.:15:24.

Kei Nishikori in a five set match. It took almost four hours. Murray

:15:25.:15:30.

was not at his best. He lost the second set from a break up.

:15:31.:15:35.

Nishikori forced the match into a decider. He took the final set 7-5.

:15:36.:15:41.

He plays Stan Wawrinka next. For Murray, it is the Davis cup against

:15:42.:15:46.

Argentina next weekend in Glasgow. I have not let anybody down. I tried

:15:47.:15:50.

my best. I fought as hard as I could with what I had. I didn't let

:15:51.:15:55.

anybody down. Certainly not myself. I pushed myself as hard as I could

:15:56.:15:59.

and I'm very proud of what I have done. If someone had offered me the

:16:00.:16:06.

summer that I have had, before Wimbledon, I probably would have

:16:07.:16:12.

signed for that. Not the happiest day for Andy Murray. What a

:16:13.:16:16.

spectacular 12 months. The odd Britain win their first Davis cup

:16:17.:16:20.

from 80 years, success at Wimbledon and the Olympics. And England's

:16:21.:16:24.

cricketers trashed in the Twenty20 game. How come?

:16:25.:16:36.

And how were England thrashed it really is a different format.

:16:37.:16:49.

Pakistan cruised home in the end. It was a disappointing end to the

:16:50.:16:53.

series, but for England in general it was a positive summer.

:16:54.:16:58.

Behind all the hype and excitement associated with going to university,

:16:59.:17:03.

More than half of all female students report being sexually

:17:04.:17:08.

harassed, with alcohol-fuelled freshers' parties, initiation

:17:09.:17:10.

ceremonies and fancy dress pub crawls at the beginning of term,

:17:11.:17:15.

In a moment we'll be talking to a group of students

:17:16.:17:20.

about the scale of the problem and what universities

:17:21.:17:22.

First, this report from Catryn Nye, who's been speaking

:17:23.:17:25.

I've been to some clubs where they say you have to show me

:17:26.:17:45.

what you're wearing before you go in.

:17:46.:17:49.

Ie, open up your coat so I can see what

:17:50.:17:52.

You went to a club and that was the dress code?

:17:53.:17:58.

code for men, for the girls it was you have to dress sexy and once

:17:59.:18:04.

you're inside it was worse because you're already

:18:05.:18:06.

there as a sexualised object, therefore once you're in

:18:07.:18:15.

men are probably more likely to try and take advantage of you.

:18:16.:18:18.

I've been on a night out with the lads.

:18:19.:18:20.

It turns into a game, kind of, like, before

:18:21.:18:27.

you go to a club it's like, a strategy is devised for the night.

:18:28.:18:30.

Lads, what are we going to do tonight?

:18:31.:18:33.

How are we going to get the girls and who can get the most kind of

:18:34.:18:37.

I guess the most common type is when you're

:18:38.:18:54.

dancing and you get approached by a boy,

:18:55.:18:56.

usually from behind, which speaks

:18:57.:18:58.

for itself in the fact that I think the boys say

:18:59.:19:01.

and is meant to be, I think you're beautiful and want to speak to you.

:19:02.:19:06.

behind, it is quite an oppressive and weird situation anyway.

:19:07.:19:14.

One-time when I was at a phone party during

:19:15.:19:17.

freshers, quite early on, and was separated from my friends,

:19:18.:19:19.

we were in quite a big group, but because it's

:19:20.:19:25.

a phone party you can't see anything clearly and at one point

:19:26.:19:28.

I was all on my own and I was like, this is

:19:29.:19:33.

Your friend helped you out, or was there, I've had

:19:34.:19:36.

Yes, I'm kind of a big man that has to

:19:37.:19:46.

stand there and give eyes, leading on to fights

:19:47.:19:53.

because of the guys been really weird about my

:19:54.:19:55.

So this union guy went to a club, there was, I think it

:19:56.:20:01.

was a freshers night, so their tag line for the night

:20:02.:20:04.

I don't know if any of you guys remember that?

:20:05.:20:07.

past this point and we are liberated and we know it is tongue

:20:08.:20:12.

Rape happens at universities all the time

:20:13.:20:15.

and I'm so conscious of being considered

:20:16.:20:17.

the point where it's just not funny and boys need to realise it's not.

:20:18.:20:22.

The statistics show that only one in seven girls were surprised

:20:23.:20:25.

by being sexually harassed, is that what you

:20:26.:20:27.

I don't think I've ever been on a night out when not one

:20:28.:20:33.

person has had some form of sexual harassment.

:20:34.:20:36.

People almost want to hear these really traumatising

:20:37.:20:39.

stories of just like almost sexual assault,

:20:40.:20:41.

but it's not that, it's the

:20:42.:20:44.

kind of everyday grating feeling of knowing

:20:45.:20:46.

that it is a given that if you

:20:47.:20:49.

go you will get unwarranted attention or you will

:20:50.:20:51.

get someone coming up to

:20:52.:20:54.

you after you giving no signal that you're interested.

:20:55.:20:59.

On the night bus after a

:21:00.:21:01.

You always like end up just discussing who was the creepy

:21:02.:21:07.

In light of all of these cases that have come

:21:08.:21:11.

out recently with girls making accusations of rape and boys saying

:21:12.:21:14.

they've been given these signals, I think it is only beneficial

:21:15.:21:16.

to boys and girls to re-establish consensual,

:21:17.:21:19.

I don't want to say sex, but consensual anything.

:21:20.:21:22.

I think clubs have a responsibility to look out

:21:23.:21:26.

for girls and boys, because obviously it

:21:27.:21:28.

What do you do about the culture? Here are some students to try to

:21:29.:21:48.

answer that. Welcome, all of you. Step, you change your clothes and

:21:49.:21:52.

you think about carefully what you are going to wear when you go on a

:21:53.:21:57.

night out? Why? Definitely because it is so now. What would you not

:21:58.:22:04.

where and why? When I am getting dressed I put on an outfit and look

:22:05.:22:09.

in the mirror and think, is this shirt too low or is this skirt too

:22:10.:22:14.

short? It is not for me because I feel comfortable in it, but I do not

:22:15.:22:19.

feel comfortable with the fact that I will get groped or cat called in

:22:20.:22:23.

it, so I will change my clothes and I will not wear what I want to wear

:22:24.:22:27.

on a night out, especially in clubs in town. Am I right in saying that

:22:28.:22:34.

the sexual harassment you have experienced is in part responsible

:22:35.:22:40.

for sometimes you thinking I am not going out because it is too much?

:22:41.:22:46.

Sometimes because it has become an inevitability and it is no longer

:22:47.:22:49.

something we question or get angry about, it is something we expect,

:22:50.:22:54.

sometimes when you are getting ready or planning a night out evening, I

:22:55.:22:58.

cannot be bothered to deal with that and I am not in the mood to push

:22:59.:23:02.

someone of meat or say no several times. Yes, sometimes it does put me

:23:03.:23:09.

off going out and I know it puts off a lot of friends going out. You have

:23:10.:23:14.

experienced it on night out at uni and also on degree courses. Can you

:23:15.:23:19.

give us some examples? Courses that I put on where the male was to

:23:20.:23:29.

dominate the classroom and they want to have patronising shut up, little

:23:30.:23:34.

girl type rhetoric. It is not sexual harassment. It highlights the

:23:35.:23:40.

domineering culture that does not let women speak up. On some courses

:23:41.:23:44.

girls do not tend to participate that much academically because it is

:23:45.:23:48.

curtailed either fact that there is a lot of lad culture with sexual

:23:49.:23:55.

harassment at its gravity, but the pervading theme is misogyny. Give me

:23:56.:24:03.

some examples of the courses? Maths courses, engineering courses,

:24:04.:24:13.

particularly the dense courses. Their academic well-being is not as

:24:14.:24:17.

valued as much as the other students or their input is not as valued that

:24:18.:24:21.

much, so that feed into the rhetoric. These figures that so many

:24:22.:24:32.

e-mails students say they have experienced sexual harassment at

:24:33.:24:38.

university. Joss and Nick, it is not your responsibility, but why do so

:24:39.:24:42.

many young men think it is OK to pinch a woman's backside? We have

:24:43.:24:49.

seen in running our campaigns in Oxford a lot of men come to

:24:50.:24:52.

university and they have no concept of the idea of sexual consent and

:24:53.:24:57.

most of them have not heard the phrase sexual consent and have not

:24:58.:25:01.

thought about what it means to respect body autonomy. Most people

:25:02.:25:06.

do not necessarily go out and think I want to harm someone and make

:25:07.:25:10.

someone feel afraid, they just do not know it is not appropriate. It

:25:11.:25:14.

is not an appropriate way to treat anyone, woman or man. For people who

:25:15.:25:23.

go about doing it they think it is a laugh and the normalised, acceptable

:25:24.:25:27.

way of behaving. It is a game and they do not realise the impact it

:25:28.:25:32.

has on people's lives. Where do you think that normalisation attitude

:25:33.:25:38.

has come from? Lad culture. What does that mean? It is this huge kind

:25:39.:25:45.

of brother Shep. The closest thing we have is fraternities in America.

:25:46.:25:55.

It is nowhere near as bad in the UK. It is this brotherhood that they

:25:56.:26:00.

form and it is solidarity and companionship with each other, so it

:26:01.:26:05.

becomes a group activity to engage in sexual harassment. You said

:26:06.:26:10.

especially with thinking involved. As soon as alcohol is involved,

:26:11.:26:15.

whether the person who is being harassed is trying or the person

:26:16.:26:21.

harassing is drunk, it is perceived as OK because, oh, well, we are

:26:22.:26:26.

drunk, it is fine, the rules go out the window. You have to accept it

:26:27.:26:31.

because you chose to come out tonight. It is just not the case, it

:26:32.:26:36.

is ridiculous you cannot have a drink or you cannot comfortably get

:26:37.:26:40.

drunk in a safe environment any more, especially in clubs. It is

:26:41.:26:47.

almost a pack mentality as well. A lot of men know they would not

:26:48.:26:53.

behave like that on their own, or they would not behave like that when

:26:54.:26:56.

they were sober. They are assuming when they are in a group that it

:26:57.:27:00.

becomes acceptable because you are protected by the fact it is a group

:27:01.:27:05.

activity. It is obviously wrong when people sit down and think about it,

:27:06.:27:09.

but it is normalised in male culture. People often do not sit

:27:10.:27:17.

down and think about it. Matt on Facebook says Wenders chatting up a

:27:18.:27:20.

woman in a club become sexual harassment. Everybody wants to

:27:21.:27:29.

become a victim these days. No. Know what? It is not necessarily that

:27:30.:27:33.

everyone wants to become a victim and become sexually harassed. If

:27:34.:27:38.

that is the case, 15% of rapes are reported and 85% are not. One in

:27:39.:27:44.

five go to court. This is all within the university domain. What would

:27:45.:27:50.

you say to that Facebook from Matt? I would say it is about being

:27:51.:27:54.

respectful to someone. If you talk to someone and they say, I am not

:27:55.:28:00.

interested... The thing I have noticed is guys repeatedly go after

:28:01.:28:05.

girls and they do not realise it. A big issue that is part of this is we

:28:06.:28:10.

do not talk about this in sexual education at schools. That is how

:28:11.:28:14.

you tackle it, you go to the core of it. When I was having sexual

:28:15.:28:19.

education as Gould people would say things like girls should think about

:28:20.:28:24.

what they are wearing, which almost puts the blame on women themselves.

:28:25.:28:28.

There is no excuse for sexually assaulting someone. Somebody has

:28:29.:28:34.

tried to grope me in a club and I would turn around and say, I am not

:28:35.:28:38.

interested, and he would continue to talk to me. It was preaching on

:28:39.:28:46.

verbal abuse and I said, now I have a boy thing, I am not interested.

:28:47.:28:51.

That was not enough. He asks me to prove I had a boyfriend. He said, I

:28:52.:28:57.

do not believe you, as if that is a reason for it being OK. He asked me

:28:58.:29:01.

to point him out in the club, to prove thy I was under the row of a

:29:02.:29:09.

boyfriend. To directly answer Matt's question, it becomes sexual

:29:10.:29:13.

harassment when you start doing something in someone's physical

:29:14.:29:17.

space without their consent. Talking to somebody can become harassment if

:29:18.:29:21.

it is verbally abusive, but it is when you start to cross that

:29:22.:29:24.

boundary and most people know what the boundary is. You should know

:29:25.:29:30.

what the boundary is. Even without sex education lessons, they should

:29:31.:29:34.

know that. It is not OK to touch someone without their permission.

:29:35.:29:39.

What is it like to be sexually harassed by a woman? It is not as

:29:40.:29:45.

common practice, it is a different experience for men because it is not

:29:46.:29:51.

the same in terms of physical fear. I know a lot of women can feel

:29:52.:29:55.

physically intimidated and fearful for their safety when a man is

:29:56.:30:00.

looming over them in a club. One of the girls said they came from behind

:30:01.:30:06.

and that could be fear inducing. For a woman it is a different thing in

:30:07.:30:12.

that most men are taught not to physically react to women. If a man

:30:13.:30:17.

came up to you and did that, you would shove them away. A man would

:30:18.:30:21.

not feel comfortable doing that, so you are stuck in a situation where

:30:22.:30:24.

you do not know what to do because you cannot have a verbal

:30:25.:30:28.

communication. What sexual harassment did you experience? If

:30:29.:30:34.

anyone has got children who have not gone to school or very young

:30:35.:30:36.

children, turn the volume down now. It doesn't happen every time I go

:30:37.:30:46.

out. A woman, especially sometimes older women, make me feel because I

:30:47.:30:56.

am a younger guy, especially groups of women. It is coming up and

:30:57.:30:59.

touching you from behind. Running their hands down your body. It is

:31:00.:31:04.

minor stuff that can make you feel uncomfortable. What do you say?

:31:05.:31:10.

Somebody has come up to me and tried to dance with me. Almost going down

:31:11.:31:18.

to the floor. I have had to stand there really rigidly and shake my

:31:19.:31:23.

head and say, no, go away please. It is a fine line between... It will

:31:24.:31:30.

resonate with a lot of men. They don't know what to do in that

:31:31.:31:35.

situation. A quick final thought. It is a huge question. If you do not

:31:36.:31:39.

have an answer, that is fine. What do we do to get rid of low-level

:31:40.:31:47.

sexual harassment? Education. There needs to be a societal movement.

:31:48.:31:56.

From sexual education to freshers at University to the second years and

:31:57.:31:59.

be 30 years having the social responsibility to instil that kind

:32:00.:32:04.

of environment. I completely agree. It has to be in secondary schools

:32:05.:32:10.

where we have to talk about it. Universities have to be harsher on

:32:11.:32:14.

it. People think they can ruin other people's studies by doing this to

:32:15.:32:18.

people and they have no consequences. I would say just

:32:19.:32:22.

opening up the discussion for everyone to be able to participate

:32:23.:32:27.

in, regardless of your gender or your sexuality, that it is OK, it is

:32:28.:32:33.

something that is going to be taken seriously by people. You are not

:32:34.:32:36.

going to be seen as just complaining or making it up. It will be taking

:32:37.:32:43.

it as Makabu be taken seriously. Education from an early age. And

:32:44.:32:47.

universities taking it seriously as opposed to looking at the Rome

:32:48.:32:52.

public relations are keeping people out of prosecution.

:32:53.:32:56.

Thank you very much. We will talk to Universities UK after ten o'clock.

:32:57.:33:00.

They are the organisation responsible for universities across

:33:01.:33:04.

England and Wales. We will ask how seriously they are taking it.

:33:05.:33:07.

Still to come, a memorial to the 96 who died.

:33:08.:33:10.

We'll examine calls for a Hillsborough Law,

:33:11.:33:11.

which would make it illegal for police officers and other public

:33:12.:33:14.

servants to give misleading evidence.

:33:15.:33:15.

And we'll talk to family and friends of some of Britain's Paralympians,

:33:16.:33:19.

as the Rio Games get under way with a spectacular opening ceremony.

:33:20.:33:23.

Can Para GB do even better than in London 2012?

:33:24.:33:35.

A couple of e-mails about grammar schools, which we are going to talk

:33:36.:33:43.

about. Vic says, all of life is selective. University entries, job

:33:44.:33:51.

applications, even the Olympics. Labour, as usual, is promising a

:33:52.:33:55.

race to the bottom. The rain is horrified by the grammar school

:33:56.:33:58.

proposals which would merely select wealthy children and cause further

:33:59.:34:03.

social divide. Weigl says he is from a working class background who went

:34:04.:34:08.

to teach. -- Michael. He thinks grammar schools are an excellent

:34:09.:34:13.

idea for academically minded students as trade schools are for

:34:14.:34:15.

other students. Now the news. Theresa May has defended plans for a

:34:16.:34:25.

new expanded grammar schools in England.

:34:26.:34:25.

At a meeting of Conservative MPs, the Prime Minister said she wanted

:34:26.:34:28.

an "element of selection" in the education system -

:34:29.:34:30.

though new grammar schools would not be forced on areas that

:34:31.:34:33.

The comments were made after a document outlining proposals

:34:34.:34:36.

was caught by a photographer outside Downing Street on Tuesday.

:34:37.:34:39.

A review into England's flood defences will be published today.

:34:40.:34:42.

It was commissioned by the government after record

:34:43.:34:44.

rainfall last winter caused flooding, resulting in more

:34:45.:34:47.

than ?1 billion worth of insurance claims.

:34:48.:34:55.

We will have more in the next few minutes.

:34:56.:34:57.

Two men have been arrested in London on suspicion

:34:58.:35:00.

The men, aged 19 and 20, were arrested at an address

:35:01.:35:04.

Officers are searching a number of addresses

:35:05.:35:06.

and vehicles in the west, south east London and Thames Valley areas.

:35:07.:35:19.

A leading member of a group representing hundreds of people

:35:20.:35:21.

who suffered abuse in children's homes run by Lambeth Council

:35:22.:35:23.

in south London, says he's lost faith in the independent inquiry

:35:24.:35:26.

Raymond Stevenson represents those who attended the Shirley Oaks home

:35:27.:35:30.

He says he no longer has confidence that the inquiry

:35:31.:35:34.

The Home Secretary has rejected a claim by the former chair

:35:35.:35:37.

of the inquiry that she'd been prevented from choosing

:35:38.:35:39.

The number of children seeking counselling

:35:40.:35:43.

because they are considering suicide has more than doubled in five years,

:35:44.:35:46.

Turbulent home lives, pressure at school and mental health

:35:47.:35:53.

conditions were all major triggers for suicidal thoughts,

:35:54.:35:56.

with children as young as 10 contacting the charity for help.

:35:57.:36:03.

The tech giant Apple unveiled its latest version of the iPhone

:36:04.:36:06.

The new device has attracted controversy for not having

:36:07.:36:09.

The launch of the iPhone 7, which is also water-resistant

:36:10.:36:15.

and has a two-lens camera, comes after a year of falling iPhone

:36:16.:36:18.

sales and a decline in Apple's share of the phone market.

:36:19.:36:27.

More from me at ten. Now the latest sport. Good morning.

:36:28.:36:35.

The start of the Paralympics is upon us. Lee Pearson, the ten time

:36:36.:36:40.

Olympic champion from equestrianism, was Great Britain's flag bearer.

:36:41.:36:43.

There was blowing towards the Brazilian Prime Minister. A packed

:36:44.:36:49.

Maracana Stadium saw another entertaining start. Lott is expected

:36:50.:36:53.

in the next ten days, including Sarah Storey today. Andy Murray says

:36:54.:36:57.

it will be hard for him to be fully fit and ready for next week's Davis

:36:58.:37:02.

Cup tie against Argentina. He was not dead in the US open quarterfinal

:37:03.:37:07.

by Japan's Kei Nishikori in five sets. -- knocked out. England's

:37:08.:37:12.

cricketers suffered one of the biggest ever defeats in Twenty20

:37:13.:37:17.

cricket last night, Pakistan beating them by nine wickets at Old Trafford

:37:18.:37:24.

is with more than five of their overs remaining. Liberty Media has

:37:25.:37:30.

bought the rights to Formula one. Bernie Ecclestone will stay as chief

:37:31.:37:35.

executive. That is all the sport for now. I am back after ten.

:37:36.:37:38.

Families of some of the victims of the Hillsborough tragedy

:37:39.:37:40.

are calling for a new law which would make it illegal

:37:41.:37:43.

for police officers and others in public service to give misleading

:37:44.:37:45.

They say the so-called Hillsborough Law, which includes

:37:46.:37:49.

penalties and fines, would address a "culture of denial"

:37:50.:37:53.

She lost her 18-year-old son, James, in the disaster and is chairman

:37:54.:37:59.

of the Hillsborough Family Support Group.

:38:00.:38:02.

And Elkan Abrahamson, a lawyer who represented 20

:38:03.:38:04.

of the families at the new inquests and helped draft this bill.

:38:05.:38:11.

Welcome to both of you. Margaret, tell me why this is so important to

:38:12.:38:21.

you and the other families? It is important because when you look back

:38:22.:38:25.

over the past 27 years of what the families have gone through, we have

:38:26.:38:28.

got to make sure this can never happen again. I think anybody of any

:38:29.:38:38.

institution, especially of public office, who have protection, should

:38:39.:38:48.

be allowed to... It is important that Hillsborough can never happen

:38:49.:38:51.

again. And that they hand all documentation, everything,

:38:52.:38:55.

statements, correspondence, it should be handed over immediately to

:38:56.:39:01.

the victims of any kind of disaster for the good of the public. Things

:39:02.:39:09.

have got to change. We have got this it James Jones, who has been

:39:10.:39:15.

commissioned by the previous Home Secretary, to look into what lessons

:39:16.:39:18.

can be learned. -- Bishop James Jones. So many lessons have got to

:39:19.:39:26.

be learned. I think we have got to go deeper than what the families

:39:27.:39:32.

agreed to. We have to go deeper than that. It is also about funding. You

:39:33.:39:37.

have to bring funding into it. It has got to be a level playing field

:39:38.:39:44.

on every level. Families did not have funding. They had to raise

:39:45.:39:49.

funds. It has got to be a lot deeper. A draft law that would make

:39:50.:40:02.

it illegal for people to lie. All sorts of things are illegal, from

:40:03.:40:05.

the most serious crimes to Leicester on the spectrum. It does not stop

:40:06.:40:09.

people from committing them. Why would this make a difference? It is

:40:10.:40:16.

not just about lying, it is about not fully disclosing. It is also

:40:17.:40:21.

intended not to put sanctions on people, but to help people who want

:40:22.:40:24.

to tell the truth. If we take the argument away from Hillsborough and

:40:25.:40:29.

think about an operating theatre where something has gone badly wrong

:40:30.:40:32.

and there is pressure on the junior staff in the theatre to support the

:40:33.:40:36.

consultant, they can rely on this law and say, I have to tell the

:40:37.:40:39.

truth because if I don't I will be committing a criminal offence. That

:40:40.:40:45.

really does make sense. We have heard Andy Burnham talking about a

:40:46.:40:50.

Hillsborough law. This is different, isn't it? Yes, Andy put forward a

:40:51.:40:56.

Hillsborough law in the last session of Parliament. Parliament rose

:40:57.:41:00.

before anything could be done. The point he wanted to block -- to

:41:01.:41:03.

promote was parity funding. This address is another problem.

:41:04.:41:09.

Margaret, another thought from you. Had this law been in place when

:41:10.:41:12.

Hillsborough happened, I just wonder what difference it would have made

:41:13.:41:18.

to you and the other families? It would have made a big difference.

:41:19.:41:22.

What was just said, I totally agree with. It would've made a big

:41:23.:41:26.

difference. Families would had more information. We learned an awful

:41:27.:41:33.

lot. It is not just about Hillsborough. This is hopefully to

:41:34.:41:36.

try to change things for the better, for the good of the ordinary people.

:41:37.:41:42.

We saw things in the court, we saw things for the very first time, and

:41:43.:41:46.

we thought we knew everything. That was all there for 20 odd years. That

:41:47.:41:51.

is a disgrace. It has got to change. We should never have had to sit in

:41:52.:41:56.

another inquest to find that this information that was already there

:41:57.:42:00.

are 27 years ago. It is an absolute disgrace. Can you describe for our

:42:01.:42:08.

audience the toll on you of being at those inquests over two years each

:42:09.:42:14.

day? It is not just the toll on me, it was the toll on all of the

:42:15.:42:18.

families. Every one of them. They have had 27 years of torture. 27

:42:19.:42:23.

years knowing there was a lot of evidence that was not handed over.

:42:24.:42:28.

And to me, also the toll on the ordinary people to fund raise for

:42:29.:42:31.

the families. Without their help we could not have got where they are --

:42:32.:42:37.

we are. A lot of things have got to be changed for the good of the

:42:38.:42:41.

ordinary people. Thank you very much for your time. Margaret Aspinall,

:42:42.:42:47.

who lost her son, James, at Hillsborough, he was 18. And Elton

:42:48.:42:48.

Abrahamson. Within the last few minutes

:42:49.:42:50.

the official report into England's flood defences has been published

:42:51.:42:52.

following severe The government's promised to take

:42:53.:42:54.

a "hard look at how our cities, towns and villages stand up

:42:55.:43:02.

to severe flooding". Our correspondent Dan Johnson

:43:03.:43:05.

is at the Dalton Barracks near Abingdon, where a new flood

barrier is being unveiled. Tell us more about the report, this

:43:08.:43:21.

barrier and whether it will work? Yes, that is the key question. That

:43:22.:43:25.

is what everybody is wondering. This is what we are talking about. The

:43:26.:43:29.

sort of thing the government is announcing more of. Mobile steel

:43:30.:43:34.

barriers is at locations like this airfield in Oxfordshire but can be

:43:35.:43:39.

taken around the country. Miles and miles of this barrier has been

:43:40.:43:42.

announced as part of this review into last winter's flooding. This is

:43:43.:43:48.

the sort of kit that will be put out around the country, ready to react

:43:49.:43:50.

if we do see those levels of rainfall again, that kind of

:43:51.:43:56.

flooding risk. You can see that the team here can very quickly assemble

:43:57.:44:00.

and disassembled this sort of barrier to provide protection to

:44:01.:44:04.

communities awaiting more prominent flood defences. That is what the

:44:05.:44:08.

government is saying. They had committed billions of pounds two

:44:09.:44:12.

extra flood protection. But in the meantime, this temporary defence

:44:13.:44:18.

will be ready if we do see a repeat of the flooding of last winter. What

:44:19.:44:22.

they also say is that one key finding from last winter's floods

:44:23.:44:26.

was that the key bits of infrastructure work at too great a

:44:27.:44:32.

risk from floods. Power stations, electricity substations, the water,

:44:33.:44:35.

sewage supplies and key railway lines were all The headlines: in

:44:36.:44:39.

different parts of the country, especially in the north of England.

:44:40.:44:43.

The government says it will work with the utility companies to

:44:44.:44:46.

provide protection for those key bits of infrastructure. They are

:44:47.:44:52.

also today announcing better forecasting of what the rainfall

:44:53.:44:55.

will be like in future. They think they can get a more precise idea of

:44:56.:44:59.

where the heavy rain will be. Where the flood risk is. And where they

:45:00.:45:03.

can deploy protection like this to try to stop community is getting

:45:04.:45:07.

flooded. They are also offering help those who were hit by the floods.

:45:08.:45:11.

Still people having to clear up the mess. Thank you for your messages on

:45:12.:45:24.

sexual harassment of university students, predominately women, but

:45:25.:45:28.

some men as well. David said, I have run large clubs for many years and

:45:29.:45:32.

if any woman complained to security about harassment, action would be

:45:33.:45:36.

taken. Someone says heavy drinking

:45:37.:45:42.

epitomises our universities today. A 21-year-old in London said, I have

:45:43.:45:50.

never expected this, harassment between other students, instead it

:45:51.:45:55.

is older men lurking around our buyers and making us feel uneasy.

:45:56.:46:01.

Another one said clubs will change their policies if male and female

:46:02.:46:08.

members decline. Another one says there is ignorance about where

:46:09.:46:12.

consent level ends. These are degree level students, but they feel they

:46:13.:46:16.

can get away with it because it is so normalised.

:46:17.:46:20.

How many pupils will Kent headteacher Matthew Tate send home

:46:21.:46:23.

today for not wearing the absolutely correct uniform?

:46:24.:46:25.

Since Tuesday, he's sent 70 away. We'll talk to him to live and ask

:46:26.:46:28.

if he's the strictest head in England?

:46:29.:46:30.

Plus, we'll hear from one of the pupils he's turned away.

:46:31.:46:33.

The Paralympics kicked off in Rio last night with a spectacular

:46:34.:46:35.

opening ceremony that featured blind dancers, fireworks and a spectacular

:46:36.:46:40.

performance by the wheelchair jumper, Aaron Wheelz,

:46:41.:46:43.

who backflipped into the stadium down a giant ramp.

:46:44.:46:48.

More than 260 British athletes will take part in 19 sports

:46:49.:46:52.

The organisers say they're confident that Rio is ready despite the

:46:53.:46:58.

build-up that's been marred by poor ticket sales and funding problems -

:46:59.:47:03.

but will it end in sporting triumph for Paralympics GB?

:47:04.:47:08.

Let's talk now to friends and family of Paralympic medal hopefuls

:47:09.:47:11.

We've got Ruth Taylor, friend of cyclist Dame Sarah Storey.

:47:12.:47:17.

Nyree Kindred, wife of swimmer Sascha Kindred.

:47:18.:47:20.

Annie Giglia, sister of cyclist Megan Giglia.

:47:21.:47:24.

And Charles Johnston from Sport England.

:47:25.:47:32.

Welcome, all of you. Ruth, can I start with you? Dame Sarah could

:47:33.:47:42.

become Britain's most decorated Paralympian if she wins gold tonight

:47:43.:47:46.

overtaking Tanni Grey-Thompson. That would be amazing. It would be

:47:47.:47:53.

amazing. I am hopeful it is going to happen. Tell us how you know Sarah

:47:54.:47:59.

and what she is like. I know Sarah because I ride on her cycling team.

:48:00.:48:05.

She has got two cycling teams, a professional cycling team and the

:48:06.:48:10.

team I am on, which is a scholarship programme. I met her through cycling

:48:11.:48:16.

and she is actually really normal. She is this incredible, amazing

:48:17.:48:20.

athlete, but when you get to know her she is really lovely. She is

:48:21.:48:25.

meant mental to you. Yes, she looks after us and I do not know how she

:48:26.:48:31.

has enough hours in the day. She does her own training, she looks

:48:32.:48:34.

after the team and she has got a daughter, I do not know how she does

:48:35.:48:39.

it. Annie, your sister had a stroke less than three years ago. I think

:48:40.:48:43.

you and the family knew something was wrong. Tell us about what

:48:44.:48:52.

happened. She came home to stay with us after she split up with a

:48:53.:48:57.

girlfriend. The doctors said she might have epilepsy. She was acting

:48:58.:49:06.

erratic, but she still seem to sell, but she was on edge all the time and

:49:07.:49:10.

she kept changing her mind. That was like anyway, but it was a bit more.

:49:11.:49:15.

Then she moved up to Warwickshire and we got a phone call saying she

:49:16.:49:19.

had fainted and was in hospital and she had had a brain aneurysm. So

:49:20.:49:24.

that is what it was. But it was really serious. Yes, and it was hard

:49:25.:49:30.

for us because we were in Folkestone and my mum had to keep travelling up

:49:31.:49:35.

to see her in hospital and we were waiting to hear the news all the

:49:36.:49:39.

time. She had to have an operation, but it went wrong. They could not do

:49:40.:49:44.

what it was they needed to do, so they had to wake her up to get

:49:45.:49:49.

permission to do another one and it was a 50-50 operation and they run

:49:50.:49:53.

us up and they said at midnight there were drinkers up to tell us if

:49:54.:50:01.

it had gone well. I was at my friend's trying not to think about

:50:02.:50:05.

it, waiting for the phone call. I kept looking at the clock and the

:50:06.:50:09.

room went a bit quiet to me and that was all I could see and I thought in

:50:10.:50:15.

ten minutes everyone's world was going to explode. I am not as

:50:16.:50:22.

positive as Megan. She is a very positive person? A very positive

:50:23.:50:28.

person. That is why she is here now. I would have curled up in a ball and

:50:29.:50:34.

cried and thought, this is not fair. She is the sort of person who goes,

:50:35.:50:39.

that is life, I'm getting on with it now. Why she always into cycling?

:50:40.:50:46.

She always cycled, she has always been sporty. That is her life. But

:50:47.:50:53.

from what I know she was mainly into contacts was like rugby and hockey.

:50:54.:50:58.

She was a sports coach. That is what upset me the most. These things

:50:59.:51:03.

happen to the people where it is going to affect the one thing that

:51:04.:51:08.

keeps them going in life. But she is in the Paralympics, so she kept

:51:09.:51:14.

going. She found away. Welcome to the programme, you are a former

:51:15.:51:21.

Paralympic swimmer and you have 110 medals M yes, ten medals over the

:51:22.:51:24.

four Paralympic games I competed that. You and your husband both have

:51:25.:51:30.

cerebral Wolsey, Sasha stars competing tomorrow, how do you

:51:31.:51:38.

expect him to do? I am optimistic, he has had great training sessions

:51:39.:51:41.

in the last few years and he has gone in there with a positive

:51:42.:51:46.

attitude to perform as fast as he can. You cannot control what the

:51:47.:51:51.

rest of the world is going to do, so he is going to focus on doing his

:51:52.:51:55.

best because he has done everything he possibly can. I will be proud of

:51:56.:52:02.

him. Mentally, how prepared is he? He is mentally prepared. This is his

:52:03.:52:09.

sixth Paralympics. He has left me and his daughter at home. But he is

:52:10.:52:13.

very upbeat and is enjoying himself and is ready to race tomorrow.

:52:14.:52:20.

Finally it has started, it was an amazing opening ceremony. Does that

:52:21.:52:25.

mean we can forget the poor ticket sales, the lack of funding and the

:52:26.:52:32.

build-up and the rest of it? We have worked really hard since London 2012

:52:33.:52:37.

to make sure they have had all the support and facilities they need and

:52:38.:52:41.

all the technology. Can you give as examples of what you have spent

:52:42.:52:46.

money on to prepare? At the last won the wheelchair rugby guys caught the

:52:47.:52:51.

imagination and we have got a system where we have GPS trackers on their

:52:52.:52:55.

wheelchairs, so the analysis as to how much energy they use and where

:52:56.:53:02.

they go and that's the thing is used for our wheelchair bowling teams.

:53:03.:53:09.

The surface is a horrible green colour, which is different to what

:53:10.:53:13.

they normally train on. What colour do they normally train on?

:53:14.:53:23.

Everything from wood to a red mat, so we bought a replica Rio surfers.

:53:24.:53:30.

That is what the training teams do, they make sure they are as well

:53:31.:53:34.

prepared as they can be, so when they walk into the environment in

:53:35.:53:39.

Rio, they are as well prepared as they can be. They have green in Rio

:53:40.:53:44.

and we practice on red, but it is much quicker on green. Very much so.

:53:45.:53:50.

We bought particular table tennis bats and balls and they have used

:53:51.:53:56.

over 12,000 balls in training to get ready for Rio. When they go there

:53:57.:54:00.

they can concentrate on their game and they can get straight in to

:54:01.:54:05.

perform they can do. We have got world-class facilities and

:54:06.:54:10.

world-class support here from centres in Manchester where Megan

:54:11.:54:14.

trains, right down to Bath. There is a huge amount of expertise that is

:54:15.:54:18.

supporting them and they are as well prepared as they can be and I am

:54:19.:54:22.

sure they will be very successful. Will they be 120 medals from four

:54:23.:54:29.

years ago? I lost a lot of money betting on the Olympics, so I would

:54:30.:54:33.

not buy to Hazzard. They are as well prepared as they can be and the

:54:34.:54:37.

messages we are getting back is they are raring to go. If Sarah launches

:54:38.:54:42.

us with a gold medal, that will inspire a lot of people to perform.

:54:43.:54:48.

That is true, Ruth, the first time a British Paralympian wins a gold

:54:49.:54:52.

medal, it sets the tone for the others. Yes, it will get everybody

:54:53.:54:59.

off to an amazing start and there will be a lot of positive energy and

:55:00.:55:03.

it will be a good way to kick the games. It really would, talk about

:55:04.:55:10.

inspiring. Is that true from your own experience and your husband's?

:55:11.:55:14.

Your team-mates are winning things and you think, I need to match this.

:55:15.:55:20.

Definitely, seeing your team-mates winning the medals gives you a bus

:55:21.:55:24.

to go out there to try and equal them and perform your best and walk

:55:25.:55:29.

away with a medal yourself. In London I felt so immensely ready to

:55:30.:55:33.

get on that block and race and seeing other people when I was one

:55:34.:55:38.

of the first swimmer end, but to see Johnny Fox win a gold medal on day

:55:39.:55:42.

one, it was something you wanted to do yourself. Thank you for telling

:55:43.:55:47.

us about your husbands, mentors, etc. Thank you for coming on the

:55:48.:55:59.

programme. Do you support the Kent head who has turned away around 70

:56:00.:56:06.

pupils so far this week? The kids went back on Tuesday. He has sent 70

:56:07.:56:10.

away for breaking school uniform rules. We will be talking to Matthew

:56:11.:56:18.

Tait after ten. We are going to talk to one of the girls he has turned

:56:19.:56:24.

away and her dad. Sharon says, get your kids back into school with the

:56:25.:56:28.

correct uniform. Every pupil will look the same. Patrick tweeted,

:56:29.:56:36.

uniforms are not optional. Parents agree to their children wearing them

:56:37.:56:39.

when they accept the offer of education. Peter says, what sort of

:56:40.:56:45.

a message is this teacher giving a child? Would he go to a job in the

:56:46.:56:51.

real world and try to change what was required in the workplace? He

:56:52.:56:56.

would get sacked. People complain about a lack of respect and no

:56:57.:57:00.

boundaries being set. It has to start somewhere, so why do we not

:57:01.:57:05.

support this headteacher? Another one, the headteacher is right about

:57:06.:57:12.

wearing the correct uniform. You may change your mind possibly when you

:57:13.:57:17.

hear the dad and the little girl after the break. Now, the weather.

:57:18.:57:26.

For some of us it has been a beautiful started the day, for

:57:27.:57:35.

others so good. This picture was taken in Glasgow. You can see the

:57:36.:57:41.

rain we have had, streaming in from the West, moving eastwards. It will

:57:42.:57:51.

eventually clear. It is courtesy of this weather front, which is a cold

:57:52.:57:55.

front, so behind it are fresher conditions coming our way. Blustery

:57:56.:58:00.

showers will follow on behind the rain. Some of the rain will be heavy

:58:01.:58:07.

in North East Scotland. Behind it, it is clearing. The blustery showers

:58:08.:58:15.

will continue across Scotland through the afternoon. It is

:58:16.:58:19.

particularly windy in the north and west. For Northern Ireland after a

:58:20.:58:26.

wet start it dries up with some brightness. For Wales and south-west

:58:27.:58:30.

England we are looking at bright or sunny spells with temperatures up to

:58:31.:58:35.

19. Drifting across southern counties and into the Midlands, East

:58:36.:58:40.

Anglia and the south-eastern corner is largely dry. Places in East

:58:41.:58:51.

Anglia could hit 26 Celsius today. There will be bright spells here,

:58:52.:58:56.

with the odd shower. Through the evening and overnight there will be

:58:57.:59:00.

clear skies, but we have got a plethora of showers coming in from

:59:01.:59:04.

the West. It will be quite a breezy night. As a result, it will not be a

:59:05.:59:11.

cold night. We are looking at temperatures of 12 in the north to

:59:12.:59:17.

about 15 in the south. I'll start to the day tomorrow. The showers

:59:18.:59:22.

continued to drift from west to east. But it will be breezy. This

:59:23.:59:29.

next area of low pressure sweeps in across Northern Ireland and western

:59:30.:59:32.

Scotland and it will bring heavy rain and stronger winds. Inland it

:59:33.:59:38.

could be pretty gusty. We are looking at possibly severe gales.

:59:39.:59:45.

Temperatures tomorrow, 17 in Glasgow to highs of 23 in Norwich. A level

:59:46.:59:52.

of uncertainty as to the timing and position of this rain on Saturday.

:59:53.:59:55.

It is crossing from the West into the south-east. The position of it

:59:56.:00:02.

has changed in the last few days and it could change again. Do not take

:00:03.:00:08.

this as your final look at the forecast. Behind it there are

:00:09.:00:09.

brighter skies. Hello, it's 10 o'clock on Tuesday,

:00:10.:00:12.

I'm Victoria Derbyshire, welcome to the programme if you've

:00:13.:00:15.

just joined us. Do you back the expansion

:00:16.:00:19.

of grammar schools? The Prime Minister Theresa May wants

:00:20.:00:21.

to allow more in England - Or is it - as Labour say

:00:22.:00:24.

- social segregation? Also on the programme,

sexual harassment at universities is "out of control",

:00:28.:00:29.

with more than half of female students saying

:00:30.:00:31.

they've experienced it. I would look in Lima ranting, is

:00:32.:00:46.

:00:47.:00:49.

concerned I would get groped called. And is this the toughest

from school for not We'll talk to the defiant head

:00:56.:00:58.

teacher who's not backing Here's Anita in the BBC Newsroom

:00:59.:01:01.

with a summary of today's news. Theresa May has defended

:01:02.:01:17.

Government proposals to open new grammar schools in England

:01:18.:01:20.

or expand existing ones. At a meeting of Conservative MPs

:01:21.:01:22.

last night, the Prime Minister said she wanted an "element of selection"

:01:23.:01:25.

in the education system but that new grammar schools would not be

:01:26.:01:28.

forced on areas that Let's talk to Norman Smith in

:01:29.:01:44.

Downing Street. Good morning. Theresa May says Grammar schools

:01:45.:01:47.

help social mobility and increase choice. Critics question those

:01:48.:01:54.

premises. The subject is hugely controversial? It is very emotive,

:01:55.:01:59.

very divisive and highly politically charged. But Mrs May's view is we

:02:00.:02:05.

already have a diverse school system, private schools, academies,

:02:06.:02:07.

free schools, why not Grammar schools? She also believes it will

:02:08.:02:13.

be popular and, above all, that it will boost the prospects of poorer

:02:14.:02:18.

children. And last night she told her MPs that we are all guilty of

:02:19.:02:23.

hypocrisy when it comes to schools because, in terms of selection, she

:02:24.:02:28.

argues we already have selection. House price selection, in that

:02:29.:02:32.

better off parents can buy their way into the catchment of successful

:02:33.:02:37.

state schools. But be in no doubt, this is very risky. All of the

:02:38.:02:43.

indications are the move will face significant opposition, not just

:02:44.:02:48.

from Labour and the SNP, but from the educational establishment, some

:02:49.:02:53.

factions within her own party. And there is doubt over whether she can

:02:54.:02:56.

get this through Parliament over likely opposition in the House of

:02:57.:03:00.

Lords. It is a very big move by Theresa May. I understand that

:03:01.:03:06.

Michael Fallon has been talking about this this morning? Well, Mr

:03:07.:03:13.

Fallon has Grammar schools in his own constituency and he believes

:03:14.:03:18.

that by creating more of them, that will broaden choice for parents. The

:03:19.:03:24.

aim is very clear. To have more choice for parents in every part of

:03:25.:03:29.

the country. We are fortunate in Kent that we have a grammar school

:03:30.:03:33.

system. They have it in Buckinghamshire as well. Parents

:03:34.:03:36.

have a choice. I want parents everywhere to have the same kind of

:03:37.:03:39.

choice between a range of different schools. The risk also for Theresa

:03:40.:03:45.

May is that she has made much of her desire to help those who cannot get

:03:46.:03:52.

on and she believes grammar schools will do that. They will encourage

:03:53.:03:56.

social mobility. The danger is that critics will paint her as returning

:03:57.:04:01.

to the 50s and 60s. In other words, it looks exactly the opposite. It

:04:02.:04:08.

looks as if Theresa May is a social conservative and seeking to go back

:04:09.:04:09.

to a previous era. Thank you. Two men have been arrested

Thank you for tuning in. I have got some comments about sexual

:06:04.:06:09.

harassment. This text does not leave his name. To say that lads do not

:06:10.:06:12.

know when they're harassing is rubbish. We all know difference

:06:13.:06:17.

between right and wrong. Another, nobody is complaining that a boy

:06:18.:06:20.

cannot approach a girl, it is when the boy does not understand no are

:06:21.:06:25.

not interested yet continues to persist. Saying you have a boyfriend

:06:26.:06:28.

is usually the best way to stop being harassed. They respect the man

:06:29.:06:33.

they cannot see more than the woman they can see. Now the sport with

:06:34.:06:34.

Hugh. There were more spectacular scenes

:06:35.:06:43.

in Rio as the Paralympic Games were launched last night. We should

:06:44.:06:48.

expect a raft of success stories. 121 medals will be the target for

:06:49.:06:53.

Great Britain. It was a vibrant and colourful scene at the Maracana

:06:54.:06:57.

Stadium. The music and dancing highlighting the party atmosphere we

:06:58.:07:00.

should be expecting to see over the next ten days. No party in Brazil

:07:01.:07:04.

without -- is complete without a beach. Team GB was led out by Lee

:07:05.:07:13.

Pearson. The American para athlete, Amy Purdie, danced on her prosthetic

:07:14.:07:18.

legs with a giant robot. The doors once again opening on another

:07:19.:07:26.

celebration of sport. Andy Murray performed so spectacularly in Rio,

:07:27.:07:30.

but after his quarterfinal defeat at the US Open, he was in a more

:07:31.:07:33.

positive frame of mind than we are used to. The Wimbledon and Olympic

:07:34.:07:38.

champion was beaten by Kei Nishikori in five sets. But he was not at his

:07:39.:07:41.

best after losing the second set from a break-up. Nishikori forced

:07:42.:07:46.

the match into a decider before wrapping up the final set 7-5. He

:07:47.:07:52.

plays Stan Wawrinka. For Murray, it is the Davis cup for GB against

:07:53.:07:59.

Argentina. I have not let anybody down. I tried my best. I fought as

:08:00.:08:03.

hard as I could with what I had. I didn't let anyone down. Certainly

:08:04.:08:08.

not myself. I pushed myself as hard as I could over the last few months.

:08:09.:08:14.

I am very proud of what I have done. If someone had offered me the summer

:08:15.:08:19.

that I have had befallen them, I probably would have signed for that.

:08:20.:08:26.

England's cricketers lost heavily in the one-off Twenty20 match against

:08:27.:08:31.

Pakistan. Eoin Morgan's side struggled to 135 from their 20

:08:32.:08:37.

overs. Pakistan cruised home in the end. They reached their target with

:08:38.:08:40.

nine wickets and more than five overs to spare. A disappointing end

:08:41.:08:45.

to the International summer for England. Next up is the winter tour

:08:46.:08:51.

of Bangladesh and India. I still believe we are on and broad curve in

:08:52.:08:56.

our progression as a side in 50 over and T20 cricket. If we do, up

:08:57.:09:01.

against conditions like that again, it will be difficult to force a win

:09:02.:09:08.

unless we get off -- you have to get off to an absolute flyer. Liberty

Bernie Ecclestone will be staying on as F-1 Chief Executive. That is all

:09:27.:09:29.

the sport for now. I am back with more later.

:09:30.:09:37.

Thank you. Around 70 pupils have been sent home from a school in Kent

:09:38.:09:41.

because they were not wearing the correct uniform. It has led to angry

:09:42.:09:47.

scenes. The police were called after some parents criticised the school's

:09:48.:09:52.

new head for being overzealous. This girl's father said it would be the

:09:53.:09:57.

last day she would attend the school.

:09:58.:11:13.

That was parent Dave Hopper you saw in the video.

:11:14.:11:17.

He joins me now with his daughter Kim who was refused entry twice

:11:18.:11:20.

to school because the head teacher wasn't happy with her uniform.

:11:21.:11:23.

Hello both of you. Hi, Kim. How are you? Good, thank you. Why are you

:11:24.:11:37.

not in school today? Because of my shoes. I am not allowed in because

:11:38.:11:42.

they are swayed. Can I see them? Here. We can see them. They are

:11:43.:11:49.

really smart but they are not leather. Dave, the headteacher,

:11:50.:11:55.

Mathew Tait, says you have to buy some leather ones. Yes. The problem

:11:56.:12:01.

is unfortunately the school policy has left so much in the way of

:12:02.:12:07.

interpretation and ambiguity in their policy. We have ended up with

:12:08.:12:16.

a situation where we have gone out and bought a pair of shoes that are

:12:17.:12:22.

fit for purpose. They are smart. They will not affect her education

:12:23.:12:27.

in any way, shape or form. Can I just say that I wholly support a

:12:28.:12:32.

uniform policy. But I think if you're going to make exceptions for

:12:33.:12:36.

one, if you are going to bend the rules here and there, you have to

:12:37.:12:41.

make it for all our might not at all. Kim, did you know it was good

:12:42.:12:46.

to be really strict when you went back this term? We got told by Mr

:12:47.:12:50.

Summers before he left and before we left, that it was going to be strict

:12:51.:12:57.

on uniform. But we didn't realise how strict he was going to be. Dave,

:12:58.:13:03.

is this really worth Kim missing school over? I would have to bounce

:13:04.:13:11.

the question back, to be fair. It could be argued both ways. If the

:13:12.:13:16.

policy was completely fair and completely clear, unbiased towards

:13:17.:13:21.

some people and not others, then, no. It would not be worth 100%. The

:13:22.:13:29.

thing is, you care mostly about your own daughter, irrespective of what

:13:30.:13:32.

you say is happening with other pupils. I will put that to the

:13:33.:13:36.

headteacher when we talk to him. He has clearly said, you need to get

:13:37.:13:40.

some leather shoes, yes, please. He is the head. You can say that. No,

:13:41.:13:48.

of course. I support a uniform policy but I will support a uniform

:13:49.:13:53.

policy that everybody adheres to. And not one that everybody gets an

:13:54.:13:58.

interpretation of and he gets to decide when and where he wants to

:13:59.:14:02.

enforce it. A girl that was refused on the Tuesday went in on the next

:14:03.:14:08.

day wearing exactly the same and she was allowed in. By the head? She was

:14:09.:14:17.

allowed in by the head on the next day, or was it someone else? She was

:14:18.:14:23.

indeed, yes. And there have been several exceptions made now, where

:14:24.:14:27.

the parents have been allowed to let their parents -- children in with

:14:28.:14:32.

trainers and other things. As much as I say I supported, it is the way

:14:33.:14:40.

they have gone about it for me. A lot of people watching you are

:14:41.:14:43.

sending messages saying, what sort of message are you giving to Kim?

:14:44.:14:54.

That she is breaking rules. I am not breaking any rules. I have, caught

:14:55.:14:58.

against a lot of criticism for this. I am steadfast that if you make an

:14:59.:15:03.

exception for one, you make an exception for all. If Michael Brad

:15:04.:15:06.

turned up in a pair of trainers, not dressed appropriately, and not

:15:07.:15:10.

looking fit for purpose, I would understand. But she has come to

:15:11.:15:14.

school wearing a pair of shoes that are 100% respectable. She deserves

:15:15.:15:22.

an education. You obviously went this morning. Digi Klok are many

:15:23.:15:24.

other people were turned away today? You see how many people were turned

:15:25.:15:43.

away today? No. One message says, it is ridiculous to send people home

:15:44.:15:52.

for wrong bits of uniform. School is about education, not clothing. Sarah

:15:53.:15:56.

says if parents do not send the kids to school wearing the wrong uniform,

:15:57.:16:07.

fine them for nonattenders. These children are students, education is

:16:08.:16:13.

more important. There is some support their beer. Kim, would you

:16:14.:16:23.

not rather be at? I would, but I keep getting sent home. Do you not

:16:24.:16:29.

think your dad should just get you some leather shoes? I am not too

:16:30.:16:35.

sure really because my shoes right now are sensible and smart. What is

:16:36.:16:40.

the point of buying another peer? Only because the headteacher has

:16:41.:16:47.

asked you to. Again, it is a conversation I have tried to keep

:16:48.:16:51.

open, I have left every line of communication open and the school

:16:52.:16:56.

have failed to contact me to resolve it. Other parents have been offered

:16:57.:17:02.

free school uniform. We have not had that extended to us. I would love

:17:03.:17:07.

for it to be put to him as to why. I think genuinely we have become the

:17:08.:17:17.

hated couple out of everyone. I am interested to know how this will be

:17:18.:17:21.

resolved. Thank you very much for your time. I appreciate it. Kim,

:17:22.:17:26.

thank you. Dave Hopper, thank you for coming on the programme. We will

:17:27.:17:31.

keep trying to get through to the headteacher. He has agreed to talk

:17:32.:17:36.

to us, but we cannot sort out the technicals at the moment. Apple

:17:37.:17:41.

wants to push consumers into a wireless world and its tactic is to

:17:42.:17:45.

get rid of the headphone socket in this newest iPhones and market tiny,

:17:46.:17:55.

wireless earbuds. We will talk about how the iPhone has been received.

:17:56.:17:59.

Some people are not happy. Thank you for your comments on sexual

:18:00.:18:01.

harassment. More than half of students talk

:18:02.:18:14.

about being sexually harassed in freshers week. First, we sent our

:18:15.:18:21.

correspondence out to talk to some students last night.

:18:22.:18:30.

I've been to some clubs where they say you have to show me

:18:31.:18:33.

what you're wearing before you go in.

:18:34.:18:35.

Ie, open up your coat so I can see what you're wearing is sexy enough?

:18:36.:18:39.

You went to a club and that was the dress code?

:18:40.:18:44.

The dress code was, there was no dress code for men,

:18:45.:18:48.

for the girls it was you have to dress sexy and once you're

:18:49.:18:51.

inside it was worse because you're already there as a sexualised

:18:52.:18:55.

object, therefore once you're in then they are probably more

:18:56.:19:01.

likely to try and take advantage of you.

:19:02.:19:03.

I've been on a night out with the lads.

:19:04.:19:06.

It turns into a game, kind of, like, before you go to a club it's like,

:19:07.:19:15.

Lads, what are we going to do tonight?

:19:16.:19:20.

How are we going to get the girls and who can get

:19:21.:19:23.

I guess the most common type is when you're dancing and you get

:19:24.:19:33.

approached by a boy, usually from behind,

:19:34.:19:35.

which speaks for itself in the fact that I think the boys say that

:19:36.:19:39.

it's a compliment and it's meant to be, I think you're beautiful

:19:40.:19:42.

But if someone comes up from behind, it is quite an oppressive

:19:43.:19:48.

One-time when I was at a foam party during freshers, quite early on,

:19:49.:19:55.

I was separated from my friends, we were in quite a big group,

:19:56.:19:59.

but because it's a foam party you can't see anything

:20:00.:20:02.

I was surrounded literally on all four sides by guys.

:20:03.:20:09.

I was all on my own and I was like, this is not OK.

:20:10.:20:15.

Your friend helped you out, or was there, I've had to do that

:20:16.:20:18.

so many times for my friends on nights out.

:20:19.:20:21.

Yes, I'm kind of a big man that has to stand there and give eyes,

:20:22.:20:32.

nearly getting into fights if the guy's been really

:20:33.:20:35.

So this union guy went to a club, there was,

:20:36.:20:41.

I think it was a freshers night, so their tag line for the night

:20:42.:20:45.

I don't know if any of you guys remember that?

:20:46.:20:50.

We might might like to think we're past this point and we are liberated

:20:51.:20:53.

and we know it is tongue in cheek, but rape isn't funny!

:20:54.:20:57.

Rape happens at universities all the time and I'm so conscious

:20:58.:21:01.

of being considered a killjoy, but it's got to the point where it's

:21:02.:21:05.

just not funny and boys need to realise it's not.

:21:06.:21:10.

The statistics show that only one in seven girls were surprised

:21:11.:21:13.

by being sexually harassed, is that what you would expect?

:21:14.:21:17.

I don't think I've ever been on a night out when not one

:21:18.:21:20.

person has had some form of sexual harassment.

:21:21.:21:24.

People almost want to hear these really traumatising stories of just

:21:25.:21:28.

like almost sexual assault, but it's not that, it's the kind

:21:29.:21:31.

of everyday grating feeling of knowing that it is a given that

:21:32.:21:34.

if you go, you will get unwarranted attention or you will get someone

:21:35.:21:39.

coming up to you after you giving no signal that you're interested.

:21:40.:21:42.

You always like end up just discussing who was the creepy

:21:43.:21:49.

In light of all of these cases that have come out recently with girls

:21:50.:21:58.

making accusations of rape and boys saying they've been given these

:21:59.:22:02.

signals, I think it is only beneficial to boys and girls

:22:03.:22:12.

to really establish consensual, I don't want to say sex,

:22:13.:22:15.

I think clubs have a responsibility to look out for girls and boys,

:22:16.:22:19.

because obviously it happens to boys as well,

:22:20.:22:21.

Let's talk to a women's officer for the National Union of Students.

:22:22.:22:36.

Nicola Dandridge, chief Executive of universities UK, and Jason who runs

:22:37.:22:40.

a student led group tackling lad culture. That is at Durham

:22:41.:22:45.

University. How is it going? It is going pretty well. Our group is not

:22:46.:22:52.

specifically only targeting lad culture, it is talking to men who

:22:53.:22:57.

want to make a difference about all aspects of masculinity and sexism.

:22:58.:23:03.

How popular is your group? So far it has just been a small group of us

:23:04.:23:08.

because Durham is quite a small university and at the minute things

:23:09.:23:11.

like this are still kind of considered a niche interest. I think

:23:12.:23:17.

we have had more of an online presence than a physical one, but we

:23:18.:23:23.

are hoping to get a lot more people in the following year, because we

:23:24.:23:25.

have only been going for a year anyway. It is interesting it is

:23:26.:23:31.

considered a niche interest because when you look at the figures today

:23:32.:23:36.

more than half of female students say they have been sexually

:23:37.:23:40.

harassed. That is not niche interest either from their women or the men's

:23:41.:23:45.

point of view. Let me ask you, Nicola Dandridge, if universities

:23:46.:23:51.

take this seriously? Of course we take this seriously. This is an

:23:52.:23:56.

extraordinarily important issue. Why is it so prevalent then? The

:23:57.:24:01.

overwhelming majority, a large number of people, men and women,

:24:02.:24:06.

have a very happy and secure time in university. Having said that, there

:24:07.:24:12.

is strong evidence of harassment and violence against women. Give me some

:24:13.:24:18.

examples of how universities are taking it seriously? There are all

:24:19.:24:24.

sorts of different ways that universities are tackling it, but

:24:25.:24:28.

universities make it very clear this is not acceptable conduct. There is

:24:29.:24:32.

no space for this harassment and behaviour and that has to be

:24:33.:24:36.

explicit right at the beginning in freshers week. That is not happening

:24:37.:24:43.

now? It is, but we need to do more. So they are making it explicit and

:24:44.:24:47.

it is still happening? There is more we need to do in terms of reaching

:24:48.:24:52.

out into schools and engaging with schools to make sure that the

:24:53.:24:56.

expectation of behaviours students have when they arrived at University

:24:57.:25:01.

on the birthday fits with the expectation is that universities

:25:02.:25:04.

have. The other thing that is important is a lot of this

:25:05.:25:07.

harassment and violence against women takes place off campus in

:25:08.:25:11.

clubs and bars in the local communities. Universities do a lot

:25:12.:25:16.

of work and training and engagement with the managers of bars and clubs

:25:17.:25:21.

in their area to make sure they shared the same standards. A lot of

:25:22.:25:26.

work is going on and it is expensive and it has to happen in partnership

:25:27.:25:32.

with communities and schools. Our universities doing enough? Certain

:25:33.:25:39.

universities are doing quite a bit, however there is a promotional

:25:40.:25:43.

issue. Even though there are universities that have taken steps

:25:44.:25:47.

to evaluate harassment procedures and make sure it does not trickle

:25:48.:25:54.

down to students, whilst there is progress at the top, down at the

:25:55.:26:00.

ground people are not aware. You were raped university and you have

:26:01.:26:04.

waived your right to anonymity, but I wonder how that experience affects

:26:05.:26:07.

the campaigning you do against sexual harassment. My experience has

:26:08.:26:16.

led to be to share about it in the community. A number of people have

:26:17.:26:20.

come to me and talked about their experiences. What is most striking

:26:21.:26:26.

is hearing the stories and in many stories it is how normal these rates

:26:27.:26:30.

look. We are not talking about the kind of thing you see in the media,

:26:31.:26:35.

someone being attacked in an alleyway by a stranger. We are

:26:36.:26:40.

talking about day-to-day relations which are in fact sexual violence.

:26:41.:26:48.

We need to look at the broad cultural shift when you think about

:26:49.:26:53.

our sexual practices in society. It links very well when you say it is

:26:54.:26:58.

great to have these consent workshops, but by the time students

:26:59.:27:02.

have got to university they have already been embedded in a society

:27:03.:27:06.

where they have been taught to think about sex in a specific way. When

:27:07.:27:12.

you say embedded in society, bits of society are watching you this

:27:13.:27:16.

morning, parents, students, kids and they do not condone this. I do not

:27:17.:27:23.

bring up my boys to invade the woman's sexual space and harass

:27:24.:27:27.

them. When you say society, what do you mean? It is all over the place.

:27:28.:27:33.

All the stuff we have going on in the media, the social media,

:27:34.:27:39.

sexualisation of women anyway which is still very prevalent. Does that

:27:40.:27:47.

become embedded in some young man's brains, women are sexualised objects

:27:48.:27:51.

and you can treat them like that? Absolutely. And with a lack of

:27:52.:27:56.

decent sex relationship education in schools in the UK, which there is a

:27:57.:28:01.

dearth of, kids are learning about sex and relationships from

:28:02.:28:06.

pornography and it does not take much to realise that is deeply

:28:07.:28:10.

problematic. Is this something that is out of control on university

:28:11.:28:17.

campuses? I do. But there is a lot of work with regards to what the NUS

:28:18.:28:25.

has been doing for years. 50% or more experience unwanted attention

:28:26.:28:31.

or inappropriate touching. This research was conducted by the NUS

:28:32.:28:34.

and we have been talking about this for years. This is what interests

:28:35.:28:40.

me. I know you have and it has not had any effect. I'm not sure I would

:28:41.:28:48.

agree with that. But how can it be out of control still? We are dealing

:28:49.:28:53.

with something that is deeply rooted and I would not expect it to change

:28:54.:28:58.

in five years. When I was raped, the first thing I did was to try to find

:28:59.:29:02.

contact services on the University website and I could not find

:29:03.:29:07.

anything. Now you can go onto the website and that information is

:29:08.:29:11.

there. We are making progress, but what we have got underlying this is

:29:12.:29:14.

a much broader social problem. We need to have conversations about the

:29:15.:29:20.

way people drink and approach the pub culture. Let me bring in Jason.

:29:21.:29:27.

Drinking is a massive part of this. Is that something you tackle in your

:29:28.:29:33.

group? Is that impossible to tackle? You are at university and you will

:29:34.:29:38.

drink. To be honest, our goal is not something we talk about that much

:29:39.:29:45.

because from our point of view, and I guess the point of view of the

:29:46.:29:51.

feminism society which we work under, alcohol is frequently used as

:29:52.:29:55.

an excuse for why people have behaved the way that they have. I

:29:56.:30:02.

think in the majority of cases people may be drinking, but people

:30:03.:30:07.

have still made that choice to assault somebody and I think they

:30:08.:30:11.

would do it regardless of whether they were drunk or not. The majority

:30:12.:30:20.

of these crimes that are outside of universities still happen when

:30:21.:30:24.

people are not drunk, so I'll call cannot be the thing that is causing

:30:25.:30:26.

these things do happen. Yes, you can talk about perpetrators

:30:27.:30:36.

drinking and the role that place. We don't want that to be an excuse. And

:30:37.:30:41.

it isn't an excuse. I am concerned about the culture we have, where it

:30:42.:30:45.

is normal for people to go out and get really drunk and to be taken

:30:46.:30:50.

home and have sex with. No blame whatsoever. Women should be able to

:30:51.:30:55.

drink as they like. But we are in a hookup culture where men are willing

:30:56.:31:00.

to take the risk of taking someone home who is intoxicated, and there

:31:01.:31:04.

is a high risk they will not be able to consent. Yet, that is ordinary

:31:05.:31:08.

hookup culture. That is how people have sex in our generation. This is

:31:09.:31:12.

a massive problem and we need to talk about it. Thank you very much

:31:13.:31:14.

for coming in. Thank you. Still to come, do you back

:31:15.:31:21.

the expansion of grammar schools? In a moment we're expecting an

:31:22.:31:28.

urgent question in the House of Commons about grammar schools from

:31:29.:31:31.

the Shadow Education Minister good to the. Angela Rayner. -- from the

:31:32.:31:40.

Shadow Education Minister Abott grammar schools.

:31:41.:31:46.

Loads of comments from you this morning. Also, we will talk to be

:31:47.:31:53.

proud parents of one of Britain's's Paralympians.

:31:54.:32:00.

Now over to Anita for a summary of the news.

:32:01.:32:03.

Theresa May has defended Government proposals to open

:32:04.:32:07.

new grammar schools in England or expand existing ones.

:32:08.:32:09.

At a meeting of Conservative MPs last night, the Prime Minister said

:32:10.:32:12.

she wanted an "element of selection" in the education system but that

:32:13.:32:15.

new grammar schools would not be forced on areas that

:32:16.:32:17.

She said the existing systems already includes selection because

:32:18.:32:29.

only wealthy people can afford properties near good schools.

:32:30.:32:31.

Millions of pounds are to be spent on new flood defences in England.

:32:32.:32:34.

The government has made the announcement after reviewing

:32:35.:32:36.

England's defences in the wake of flooding which forced thousands

:32:37.:32:38.

of people out of their homes over Christmas.

:32:39.:32:40.

Its long-awaited report promises that more than 12 million pounds

:32:41.:32:42.

will be spent on new barriers and high-volume pumps.

:32:43.:32:45.

Two men have been arrested in London on suspicion

:32:46.:32:48.

The men, aged 19 and 20, were arrested at an address

:32:49.:32:52.

Officers are searching a number of addresses and vehicles

:32:53.:32:56.

in the west, south east London and Thames Valley areas.

:32:57.:33:01.

The number of workers on zero hours contracts has increased

:33:02.:33:03.

by a fifth over the past year, according to official figures that

:33:04.:33:06.

The controversial contracts mean workers do not know how many hours

:33:07.:33:09.

they will work from one week to the next.

:33:10.:33:12.

Research by a think tank, the Resolution Foundation,

:33:13.:33:14.

suggests more than two out of three adult contract workers have been

:33:15.:33:17.

A leading member of a group representing hundreds of people

:33:18.:33:24.

who suffered abuse in children's homes run by Lambeth Council

:33:25.:33:28.

in south London, says he's lost faith in the independent inquiry

:33:29.:33:31.

Raymond Stevenson represents those who attended the Shirley Oaks home

:33:32.:33:36.

He says he no longer has confidence that the inquiry

:33:37.:33:41.

A parliamentary committee is to recommend that all MPs

:33:42.:33:47.

and Peers move out of the Houses of Parliament for six years

:33:48.:33:50.

to allow for major repairs to the whole building.

:33:51.:33:53.

Parts of the Palace of Westminster are so riddled with asbestos

:33:54.:33:57.

and ageing electrics, it's been said the building will be

:33:58.:34:01.

The report will suggest relocating to nearby offices, as early as 2020.

:34:02.:34:11.

That is a summary of the latest news. Join me for BBC newsroom live

:34:12.:34:19.

at 11. Lots of you want to talk about the uniform issue at the

:34:20.:34:26.

Academy in Kent. We spoke to Dave, dad, Kim, his daughter, who is at

:34:27.:34:30.

home. The third day back into the new school term. She has been sent

:34:31.:34:36.

home three times. For not wearing the correct shoes today. Yesterday

:34:37.:34:40.

it was to do with the blazer. Gary says the dad may be right but just

:34:41.:34:43.

bite the bullet and buy some leather shoes for the sake of your

:34:44.:34:47.

daughter's education. Your daughter is more important than any

principle. Another says the head needs to educate, not dictate. Sarah

:34:54.:34:59.

from Twitter, sent home from school for wearing suede shoes. That is

:35:00.:35:02.

pathetic. It is not like they are flip-flops. Another says it seems

:35:03.:35:07.

insane that kids wear expensive uniforms for school when they are

:35:08.:35:10.

outgrowing them all the time. Another says, why did he choose not

:35:11.:35:15.

dressed uniformly Jim McGrath another had the same problem at

:35:16.:35:17.

their daughter's School of Doctor Martin boots. Hard-working parents

:35:18.:35:25.

are not made of money. Michelle 100% agrees with the head teacher. Rules

:35:26.:35:29.

are there for a reason. Read the policy and buy your uniform. It is

:35:30.:35:34.

not rocket science. I have two children and I made sure I knew the

:35:35.:35:38.

policies. We are still trying to talk to the headteacher. We will try

:35:39.:35:41.

very hard. Before that, the sport. The start of the Paralympics is upon

American company Liberty Media has confirmed it is buying Formula one

:36:46.:36:49.

executive. That is all the sport for today. Back throughout the day.

:36:50.:36:51.

Thank you. It's one of the most divisive issues

:36:52.:36:56.

in our children's education. Grammar schools are seen

:36:57.:36:58.

by supporters as a way of helping bright kids get on,

:36:59.:37:01.

but by opponents as condemning children who don't get

:37:02.:37:04.

in to the scrap heap. Theresa May wants to pave the way

:37:05.:37:07.

for more of them, despite fierce opposition from many,

:37:08.:37:10.

including her Chief Grammar schools are state

there are 67 grammar schools. In Scotland and Wales,

:37:29.:37:32.

schools are non-selective Grammar schools in England

:37:33.:37:34.

were phased out from the 1960s, and in 1998, Labour banned

:37:35.:37:42.

the creation of new ones in England. Now the Prime Minister wants to

:37:43.:37:54.

bring back an element of selection to education. We are expecting a

:37:55.:38:00.

question in the House of Commons from the shadow Education Secretary

:38:01.:38:05.

on this. That was due at half past ten. If that happens we will cross

:38:06.:38:07.

to it live. Sean Worth is a former

:38:08.:38:08.

Special Advisor to David Cameron and previously, head

:38:09.:38:11.

of the Conservative Chris McGovern is a retired

:38:12.:38:12.

head teacher and chair of the Campaign for Real Education.

:38:13.:38:17.

He joins us from Tunbridge Wells. Lucy Powell is a Labour MP

:38:18.:38:25.

and the former Shadow Education Secretary.

:38:26.:38:27.

She's in our Salford studio. Sean Worth, what do you think of

:38:28.:38:43.

this plan? The debate is whether grammar schools do or don't work.

:38:44.:38:47.

The evidence is clear. They do work. But the big problem is access for

:38:48.:38:53.

the poorest kids. They have had a divisive effect in the past. If we

:38:54.:38:57.

do see an expansion of grammar schools, we've very clearly want to

:38:58.:39:01.

see them targeted in the poorest areas and for the benefit of the

:39:02.:39:07.

poorest children. Critics say they could be targeted in the poorest

:39:08.:39:10.

areas and wealthy middle class parents will move into the area,

:39:11.:39:15.

house prices will shoot up and the very children who are supposed to

:39:16.:39:17.

get into those grammar schools from poor backgrounds will be priced out?

:39:18.:39:26.

You cannot ever stop parents from trying to get a good school for

:39:27.:39:30.

their kids. The key point about getting really good bright kids from

:39:31.:39:34.

poor backgrounds into decent school, because let's face it, the school

:39:35.:39:38.

system has failed the poorest families for many years, that is why

:39:39.:39:43.

there should be more attention on policy-making... The key point is to

:39:44.:39:46.

look at is the selection process. The test at age 11 is totally

:39:47.:39:51.

unfair. It has always been. If you want to reform the grammar system,

:39:52.:39:54.

look at that. Don't think grammars are the answer to improving schools

:39:55.:40:00.

generally. Do not take your foot off the gas in terms of improving all

:40:01.:40:04.

schools through the pupil premium, better teaching, higher paid

:40:05.:40:07.

teachers, more challenging schools. There are a host of policy levers

:40:08.:40:11.

you can pull off which grammar schools are one. Chris McGovern, can

:40:12.:40:17.

you make an 11 plus that is tutor proof, so that you genuinely -- you

:40:18.:40:21.

are genuinely testing the brightest kids? 11 is a very young age. I am

:40:22.:40:29.

an 11 plus failure. I did pass at 30. There needs to be flexibility

:40:30.:40:33.

within the system. We have that combines of schools for 50 years. In

:40:34.:40:38.

the international league tables we are bottom for social mobility but

:40:39.:40:42.

top for illiteracy and in numerous Eve. The comprehensive system is not

:40:43.:40:46.

working. We need to teach children in line with their ability. We

:40:47.:40:49.

totally support grammar schools as long as they are put alongside

:40:50.:40:54.

higher standard vocational schools. We need bright academic children to

:40:55.:40:57.

be taught in an academic environment. We need children with

:40:58.:41:01.

nonacademic skills to have a vocational education. We should be

:41:02.:41:05.

debated when that happens, had aged 13 or 14 in most countries. It is

:41:06.:41:09.

nonsense to suggest that grammar schools will be an impediment to

:41:10.:41:13.

social mobility. It is the comprehensive system which is an

:41:14.:41:17.

impediment to social mobility because parents buy into the

:41:18.:41:20.

catchment area of good schools if they have money. Let me bring in

:41:21.:41:25.

Lucy Powell, former shadow Education Secretary. There are plenty of

:41:26.:41:28.

working class parents who really would like the opportunity to get

:41:29.:41:32.

their child into a grammar school because their child is bright

:41:33.:41:36.

enough. They will welcome this expansion, while they? No. When they

:41:37.:41:42.

look at the evidence they realise their kids have got very little

:41:43.:41:44.

chance of getting into these schools. If you look at today's

:41:45.:41:49.

grammar schools, the 163 you talked about, you are than 3% are on free

:41:50.:41:56.

school meals in these schools. What if there is a proportion of kids

:41:57.:42:00.

that had to be on free school meals in the new grammar schools? Why not

:42:01.:42:04.

start with the existing grammar schools and forced the existing

:42:05.:42:09.

grammar schools to reform how they operate, so they can prove the model

:42:10.:42:13.

first. The Conservative government have done nothing to address that

:42:14.:42:18.

over the last six days. That is why David Willetts, the former Tory

:42:19.:42:21.

education minister, one of the brains of the Conservative Party,

:42:22.:42:27.

has been saying over the past couple of days that grammar schools are the

:42:28.:42:30.

domain or the preserve, if you like, of the privately tutored rich

:42:31.:42:36.

families. They do nothing at all for social mobility. In fact, they

:42:37.:42:40.

entrench advantage because they put poorer people at a disadvantage.

:42:41.:42:45.

That is why the evidence is so incredibly clear. If you look at a

:42:46.:42:48.

place like Kent, that still has grammar schools and most of its

:42:49.:42:55.

schools are grammar schools... When you create grammar schools, you

:42:56.:43:00.

create secondary modern is. The poorest children perform far worse

:43:01.:43:03.

in Kent than they do in nearby London, which is a comprehensive

:43:04.:43:06.

system, where they perform much better, because we have put a huge

:43:07.:43:12.

amount of heavy-duty -- into creating outstanding combines of

:43:13.:43:17.

schools right across London. Chris McGovern, do you accept that? Not at

:43:18.:43:22.

all. It is nonsense. Northern Ireland has had the best result in

:43:23.:43:27.

the UK forever. London is a particular case. There are a lot of

:43:28.:43:34.

highly motivated immigrant children. The immigrant population raises the

:43:35.:43:37.

standards. We are the only country in the developed world where the

:43:38.:43:41.

grandparents outperform grandchildren in literacy and

:43:42.:43:46.

numeracy. I'm going to interrupt to cross to the House of Commons so we

:43:47.:43:49.

can hear the urgent question from the shadow Education Secretary.

:43:50.:43:59.

Thank you, Mr Speaker. As the Prime Minister has said, this government

:44:00.:44:02.

is committed to building a country that works for everyone. Not just

:44:03.:44:07.

the privileged few. We believe every person should have the opportunity

:44:08.:44:11.

to fulfil their potential. No matter what their background or where

:44:12.:44:14.

they're from. Education is at the heart of this ambition. We inherited

:44:15.:44:18.

a system from the last Labour government, however, where far too

:44:19.:44:23.

many children left school without the qualifications or the skills

:44:24.:44:27.

they needed to be successful in life. And our far-reaching reforms

:44:28.:44:33.

over the last six years have changed this. Strengthening school

:44:34.:44:37.

leadership, improving standards of behaviour in our classrooms and

:44:38.:44:43.

ensuring children are taught to read more effectively. Improving maths

:44:44.:44:47.

teaching in primary schools. As a result there are now 1.4 million

:44:48.:44:51.

more pupils in schools rated as good a right standing, than in 2010. This

:44:52.:44:56.

means more young people are being given the opportunity to access

:44:57.:44:59.

better teaching and to maximise their potential. This is what we

:45:00.:45:04.

want for all children and where we are continuing our reforms so every

:45:05.:45:09.

child can have the best possible start in life. It is why we are

:45:10.:45:13.

doubling free childcare to 30 hours for working parents of three and

:45:14.:45:17.

four-year-olds. As I said in July, on the issue of academic selection,

:45:18.:45:21.

I am open-minded because we cannot rule out anything out of that could

:45:22.:45:25.

help us grow opportunity for all and give more people the chance to do

:45:26.:45:29.

well in life. The landscape for schools has changed hugely in the

:45:30.:45:41.

last ten, 20, 30 years. We now have a whole variety of educational

:45:42.:45:43.

offers available. There will be no return to the simplistic binary

:45:44.:45:46.

choice of the past were schools separate children into winners and

:45:47.:45:52.

losers. We want to build on our success and create a truly 21st

:45:53.:45:53.

century School system. We need a truly diverse range of

:45:54.:46:09.

schools and specialisms. We need more good schools in more areas of

:46:10.:46:12.

the country responding to the needs of every child, regardless of their

:46:13.:46:17.

background. We are looking at a range of options. We want to help

:46:18.:46:27.

everybody go as far as they can with the individual talent that they

:46:28.:46:37.

have. Angela Rayner. Thank you, Mr Speaker, despite that wobble, the

:46:38.:46:42.

cat is out of the bag. The government has revealed their plans

:46:43.:46:45.

for grammar schools in England, but not in this house. But through leaks

:46:46.:46:52.

to the press and at a private meeting of the members opposite. So

:46:53.:46:55.

much for the one nation government we were promised. Will the Secretary

:46:56.:47:00.

of State promised today that future such announcements will be made here

:47:01.:47:04.

so that we can give the policy the scrutiny it so badly needs? Perhaps

:47:05.:47:10.

she can tell us the evidence base for it today. As she read the ISS

:47:11.:47:15.

report into grammar schools in England? If so, perhaps she

:47:16.:47:20.

remembers the conclusion that among high achievers, those who were

:47:21.:47:24.

eligible for free school meals or live in poorer neighbourhoods are

:47:25.:47:27.

significantly less likely to go to grammar school. The OECD, the Sutton

:47:28.:47:37.

trust and even the government's own social mobility czar and their chief

:47:38.:47:42.

inspector of schools have all cited evidence against this policy. In

:47:43.:47:45.

Kent where we have grammar schools in the attainment gap is far wider

:47:46.:47:51.

than elsewhere. Can she tell us what evidence she has to support her

:47:52.:47:56.

belief that grammar schools would help disadvantaged children and

:47:57.:48:01.

close the attainment gap? Mr Speaker, at a time when our schools

:48:02.:48:07.

are facing a crisis in teacher recruitment and retention with

:48:08.:48:11.

thousands taught in super-sized classes and schools facing real term

:48:12.:48:15.

cuts to their budget for the first time in nearly two decades, pushing

:48:16.:48:21.

ahead with grammar schools shows a dangerous misunderstanding of the

:48:22.:48:26.

real issues facing our schools. Can the Secretary of State tell us what

:48:27.:48:30.

she will be doing to address the real problems that are facing our

:48:31.:48:34.

schools today? The Prime Minister has said this policy is justified

:48:35.:48:39.

because we already have social selection. Quite how making things

:48:40.:48:43.

worse by bringing back grammar schools is a solution remains a

:48:44.:48:48.

mystery. Perhaps the Secretary of State can tell us why she is not

:48:49.:48:54.

ensuring all children get a decent education. This policy will not help

:48:55.:49:02.

social policy, but it will be the lucky few who can afford the tuition

:49:03.:49:08.

who will get ahead and the disadvantage will be left behind. A

:49:09.:49:12.

policy for the few at the expense of the many. I was told the Tories know

:49:13.:49:16.

the cost of everything and the value of nothing. I do not think they even

:49:17.:49:22.

know that any more. The Prime Minister promised to lead a one

:49:23.:49:25.

nation government. She said her policy would be led by the evidence

:49:26.:49:31.

and she claimed she would govern for the disadvantaged and not the

:49:32.:49:35.

privileged few, yet this policy fails on every single parent. Angela

one is a better camera and better camera technology

:50:39.:50:41.

and stabilisers which it to notice is that it's

:50:42.:50:43.

first time there is no This has made it easier

:50:44.:50:51.

for them to make it more water resistant,

:50:52.:50:55.

but of course, there's no headphones,

:50:56.:50:57.

so instead there's one is to have headphones that go

:50:58.:51:00.

into the lightning port that you might use to charge your phone,

:51:01.:51:06.

you will now be able to buy headphones that directly go into

:51:07.:51:10.

there, or there is little adapter that can change normal headphones

:51:11.:51:12.

to go in there as well. It is a little bit ugly,

:51:13.:51:15.

and I think that the reason why it doesn't look great

:51:16.:51:18.

is Apple also wants you to buy These are their new

:51:19.:51:21.

wireless headphones. They look very much like

:51:22.:51:25.

the old earphones but without the What they do is pop into your ears

:51:26.:51:27.

and they connect directly to your phone in a way they promise is much

:51:28.:51:34.

simpler than using Bluetooth. I don't know about you but I find

:51:35.:51:36.

Bluetooth difficult. These will be $159,

:51:37.:51:39.

which I think puts it a bit of a risk of someone coming up

:51:40.:51:43.

to you and pinching them straight out of your ear,

:51:44.:51:45.

but we'll see if that happens. This is Apple's big development

:51:46.:51:48.

in this new iPhone seven. Our technology reporter

:51:49.:51:56.

Chris Foxx is with me now - what kind of reaction has the iphone

:51:57.:51:58.

7 been getting? Are people going to go for these

:51:59.:52:09.

expensive headphones? $159 is really expensive. But some Apple fans will

:52:10.:52:14.

pay any amount of money for its staff. But you need to charge your

:52:15.:52:17.

headphones with the bog-standard pair like in the olden days. You can

:52:18.:52:25.

listen to music while your phone is plugged in and charging, but you

:52:26.:52:28.

cannot do it with these lightning port ones. But there are some

:52:29.:52:33.

advanced features in these headphones, they can do voice

:52:34.:52:37.

control, which you could do with an old-fashioned Bluetooth headset. But

:52:38.:52:42.

Apple has its fans that will throw money at whatever they come up with.

:52:43.:52:47.

The phone itself will be ?100 more to people in Britain than in the

:52:48.:52:53.

States. Why? They have put up the prize of some of the iPad is

:52:54.:52:56.

quietly, even though they were given a price cut in the US. That could be

:52:57.:53:02.

due to fluctuations with the pound. But Apple says prices in the US do

:53:03.:53:06.

not include tax. In Britain the prices include VAT. Other features

:53:07.:53:12.

of the iPhone seven and how different it is not to the previous

:53:13.:53:19.

one, it has got two cameras. The screen is 25% brighter and it is

:53:20.:53:24.

water resistant. Water resistant, yes, but not waterproof. Water

:53:25.:53:30.

resistant means you can wash it. If it falls out into the loo, it still

:53:31.:53:35.

might be damaged. It might be fine, but I would not recommend going

:53:36.:53:40.

swimming with it. Samsung and other rivals have been water resistant for

:53:41.:53:47.

a long time. The point of the dual camera is so you can make the

:53:48.:53:50.

background in your photos blurry and make them look more professional. It

:53:51.:53:55.

also has won wide angle lens, so you can fit all your friends in around

:53:56.:54:00.

the dinner table and one of the other lenses is more of a zoom lens,

:54:01.:54:04.

so you can get close up to things that are further away. But rival

:54:05.:54:06.

phones have had that as well. The Paralympics kicked

:54:07.:54:15.

off in Rio last night More than 260 British athletes

:54:16.:54:17.

will take part in 19 sports The organisers say they're confident

:54:18.:54:21.

that Rio is ready despite poor So, will the Games end in sporting

:54:22.:54:25.

triumph for ParalympicsGB? Let's talk now to two very

:54:26.:54:31.

proud parents in Rio, Helen and Darrell, Mum and Dad

:54:32.:54:33.

of Paralympic Swimmer Ollie Hynd. We cannot see you, but we can hear

:54:34.:54:44.

you, which is good enough for me having spent 20 years in radio.

:54:45.:54:46.

Helen and Darell, Ollie was born with a condition called

:54:47.:54:50.

Neuro Muscular Myopathy, tell us how that affects him.

:54:51.:54:54.

Good morning, Victoria. Thank you for having us on. Yes, it is a type

:54:55.:55:06.

of muscular dystrophy and basically it weakens the muscles and it is a

:55:07.:55:11.

progressive condition. How does that affect him when it comes to training

:55:12.:55:18.

for example? It affect him in his daily life, let alone training. He

:55:19.:55:26.

gets weakness right throughout his body from his hips down, basically.

:55:27.:55:31.

His legs are the worst affected part of his body. Your legs and your hips

:55:32.:55:37.

are a vital part of your swimming technique. Basically he uses 60% of

:55:38.:55:47.

his upper body to swim. Darryl, are you with us? I am, yes, good

:55:48.:55:53.

morning. I love people in the early hours of the morning sounding as

:55:54.:55:58.

bright as you are. It is perhaps an illustration of how excited you are

:55:59.:56:03.

to be there supporting your son. Yes, absolutely. It is a long way,

:56:04.:56:11.

Rio, from the UK, but we are here and we are already to go now and we

:56:12.:56:16.

are about to leave by the Olympic Park and this morning's racing. When

:56:17.:56:22.

Ollie was 13 he went to the Beijing Paralympics to watch his brother win

:56:23.:56:25.

a gold medal. That inspired him clearly. He wanted to swim faster.

:56:26.:56:34.

Yes, indeed. It was a time when his body was changing very much and it

:56:35.:56:38.

was deteriorating very rapidly. He has always swum and done able-bodied

:56:39.:56:44.

swimming, but it was during that time when he went to Beijing and he

:56:45.:56:51.

was not sure at all what the future was going to hold for him. His body

:56:52.:56:57.

was changing very quickly, but it inspired him seeing his brother win

:56:58.:57:01.

that gold medal, just as it inspired a lot of us. What are your

:57:02.:57:04.

expectations for him at the Olympics? I am so proud he has

:57:05.:57:10.

actually made it and he has been training really hard. I know that

:57:11.:57:17.

boy will go out and give 110% if there is such a thing. He will give

:57:18.:57:21.

his absolute best and what ever that brings, he will be super proud of

:57:22.:57:27.

it. Thank you for talking to us live from rear. Good luck to Ollie and

:57:28.:57:33.

hopefully we will speak to you again soon. Thank you very much. Goodbye.

:57:34.:57:38.

The reason we can only show still pictures of the Paralympics and of

:57:39.:57:44.

other athletes is because Channel 4 have the rights and not the BBC. We

:57:45.:57:49.

are only allowed to show a very small amount of moving pictures over

:57:50.:57:54.

the next week and a half, to explain that for you. Lots of comments about

:57:55.:57:59.

school uniform and this school in Kent. Dave says it is ridiculous to

:58:00.:58:03.

expect students to wear uniforms when teachers are wearing casual

:58:04.:58:11.

wear. Loads of people supporting the headteacher. U is uniform and it is

:58:12.:58:14.

cheaper than buying your own clothes. We are back tomorrow at

:58:15.:58:21.

nine o'clock and Joanna is here. Thank you for watching and have a

:58:22.:58:22.

good day.

:58:23.:58:27.

Theresa May is paving the way for new grammar schools and Victoria Derbyshire looks at the details.

Female students tell us that sexual harassment at university is out of control, especially on boozy nights out in freshers' week.

And, we speak to the father of a schoolgirl who has been sent home twice over having the wrong school uniform.
