snatched from a busy street by two white men in a silver car.


She was found at midday yesterday knocking on doors


of nearby houses and is now


Let's talk to our reporter Brennan Nicholls who's in Oxford for us.


This happened not far from where you are, what do we know? 8:25am


yesterday on the junction of Banbury Road, it's a medieval city on the


River Thames so there are crossings over the river, major routes into


the city, the Banbury Road is one of those. It's extremely busy every


hour of every day as is the next road at the junction and there are


several schools in the area, so to keep time when students were walking


to school this girl, said the police, was snatched from the street


by two man in a silver vehicle at 830. She was found around midday one


mile away at a housing estate, knocking on doors. Please describe


it as a serious and shocking case. They say that they are putting extra


police presence in the area to gather information and alleviate


concerns. -- police describe it as a serious case. Parents and pupils


will be worried. Really busy, broad daylight, the police must be hoping


somebody saw these men. They hope so, they say the investigation is


ongoing, the girl is dealing with specially trained officers. The


recommendation to pupils and parents today is not to walk to school


alone. They must go with other friends bought with their parents.


That's pretty stark, something I haven't heard from the Thames Valley


Police, this is not the type of story of dealt with in my 20 years


reporting. It is unusual, unprecedented, worrying for all


parents. The police say they are committing as much as possible to


read. At the moment that girl is getting specialist care from


officers trained to deal with this kind of situation. If anyone saw


anything at 8:25am yesterday please get in contact with Thames Valley


Police. Thank you. We hope to speak to a representative of Thames Valley


Police this morning. Ben Brown is in the BBC


Newsroom with a summary The inquiry into child sexual abuse


in England and Wales has been thrown into fresh chaos with the suspension


of its most senior lawyer. A spokeswoman said officials had


recently become very concerned about aspects of Ben


Emmerson's leadership. Our home affairs correspondent,


Tom Symonds, reports. Ben Emmerson QC has plenty


of experience of public inquiries. His role in this one was to include


questioning witnesses at hearings But now the inquiry has published


the damaging statement... It has become very concerned


about the leadership of his team. Mr Emmerson has refused to comment,


beyond claiming that he learnt about his suspension


from media reports. The BBC has been told more than one


complaint has been made against him. Emmerson has been a central figure


of what has become an enquiry Last month, Lowell Goddard became


the third chair to resign. Now Professor Alexis Jay,


the academic who revealed child sexual exploitation in Rotherham,


is in charge, but the suspension of her senior lawyer means the sense


of crisis has not gone away. The Italian Prime Minister,


Matteo Renzi, has told the BBC it will be impossible for Brexit


negotiations to result in a deal that gives British people more


rights than others outside Mr Renzi said he thought


that the referendum result was a bad decision,


but he was ready to work with Theresa May to ensure the EU


and Britain remained "best friends". Complaints against the police have


fallen up to 90% in forces A study involving 2,000 officers


in England, Northern Ireland and the United States found


that the cameras had a big impact on the behaviour of officers,


and the people they deal with. Just a switch at the side,


and obviously it clicks quite Wherever the officers


go, their cameras go, Today, the two policemen are sent


to Cambridge Magistrates Court. A man has been sentenced for theft,


but the officers need to question him about another offence,


so they bring him in. The use of body-worn cameras


has become as routine as driving a police car,


and now there is evidence that these devices are having a profound


impact on the culture and conduct of officers


and the public. Cambridge University looked


at seven areas where police Complaints from the public dropped


93%, compared to the year before, even when officers didn't


have cameras attached. The camera has an effect


on the behaviour of officers and people they interact with,


and it seems that it's contagious, because not only did the complaints


go down for the officers that wore the cameras,


it also went down for the officers A body-worn camera in volatile


situations records clearly what's happened, and can


provide crucial evidence. Barnsley football club has


suspended assistant manager Tommy Wright after he was named


in a Daily Telegraph investigation Mr Wright has been filmed apparently


being given an envelope of money in return for allegedly


helping to persuade Barnsley to sign The Championship club says he has


been suspended "pending an internal investigation


into these allegations". Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe is to retire


after five years as the Commissioner He'll remain in his


post until February, when a successor will be appointed


by the Home Secretary His time as head of the Met has


included leading the response to the London riots and policing


during the London Olympics. A new development in the tax credit


story we've been following, the BBC now understands that 150 temporary


staff at the Belfast office of concentrates will be let go


tomorrow. They say the workers were due to finish soon and recruited on


a short term basis. The move is related to the decision by HMRC not


to renew a contract with the company. Commonly prescribed


painkillers are released to the Mac linked to an increase in heart


problems. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs given to


almost 10 million people were analysed but UK experts say that


because most people in the study are older the findings have little


relevance for most people under 65. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge


have stopped off in the Yukon as they toured Canada, they had a


lesson in local history and joint elders at an indigenous language


event for young children, listening to songs and traditional


storytelling. That's a summary of the latest news. More from me at


930. Thank you. We will be talking about whether all police officers


should be is it with one body comes. If you are a police officer and you


have used one we would be very interested to hear about your


experiences. Now the sports News. John Watson is in Salford. Let's


start with more allegations of corruption in football. More


allegations coming out of the Daily Telegraph newspaper, this time


involving QPR manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, who has been pictured


and filmed negotiating a ?55,000 fee to act as a sports ambassador,


essentially, for sports company which then saw them go on and


proposed to him the sale of players to his club. Queens Park Rangers


have said they would investigate this fully. As we heard in the news,


Tommy Wright, Barnsley assistant manager, is alleged to have accepted


a bunch of ?5,000 to assist in the buying and selling players. They


both deny wrongdoing, it's a sorry state of affairs, what three days in


football, it started with those allegations against the now former


England manager Sam Allardyce and also the Daily Telegraph say they


have the details of eight Premier League and former Premier League


managers who accepted bounds. It leaves the FA in a difficult


position to try to source the root of this corrupt behaviour, the


details of which, of course we know at this stage, they are having to


find a new England manager to replace Sam Allardyce. Interesting


that one of the names in the running, Eddie Howe, the Bournemouth


manager, has said that while he is committed to Bournemouth he feels


the England job is one of the biggest jobs in world football, he


called it the ultimate job so it would seem he is potentially putting


himself in the frame for that. In the Champions League a lot of goals


from British sides. Goals galore. We'll start with the standout game


last night, Celtic against Manchester City, a six goal thriller


which finished 3-3, Celtic took the lead through Mousa Dembele, twice


Celtic took the lead but were pegged back. This was his second, which put


them ahead, 3-2 and then City equalised, Nolito equalising


disappointing for the Celtic fans, Pep Guardiola is on an amazing run,


ten matches with his winning run and now it was a draw. Theo Walcott


scored for Arsenal, they beat Basle 2-0 last night, he also had a good


start to the season. They had a draw in their opening group game so four


points on the board for Arsenal and also for Manchester City who got on


opening day win in the Champions League and then to last night. The


Ryder Cup starts tomorrow and already controversy. He would never


need much more motivation to get yourself worked up for the Ryder


Cup, such a fantastic tournament between the United States and team


Europe but some incendiary comments have come from Peter Willett, the


brother of Danny Willett. He called the American Ryder Cup fans a bunch


of imbecile 's. This was in a story that he wrote for a golfing


magazine. This was how he described them, as pudgy basement dwelling


irritants and obnoxious dads with shiny teeth, Lego man hair,


medicated ex-wives and resentful children! It was meant to be tongue


in cheek but I suppose with any joke it goes a bit too far. Danny Willett


has distanced himself from those comments and has apologised


wholeheartedly to Davis Love III, the American captain. Not the sort


of comments that you want to be associated with, and certainly


there's incendiary comments will no doubt fire up the American team even


more so it will be very interesting to see what happens when play starts


tomorrow! Thank you, John. The figures seem to speak of themselves,


when police were body one camera is 90% of complaints of abuse fall.


This comes a study involving 2000 officers in England, Northern


Ireland and the United States. Let's speak to Rozske home affairs


correspondent, Danny Shaw. Let's talk about this research. This was


the biggest study of its kind conducted by the University of


Cambridge. They monitored complaints about 2000 officers over the course


of one year and they completed almost 1.5 million hours of shift


work. So it's a big study. What they found across the board, here and in


America was that complaints went down, 113 complaints in those 12


months compared to more than 1500 in the previous year, that's a fall of


93%. One of the interesting points was that there is a control group of


officers who did not have body one Camara is attached but complaints


also fell amongst those officers. The reason, say researchers, is what


they term contained just accountability. So the new cultures


and practices of policing are becoming embedded across the force,


not just with those officers wearing cameras.


Why did the complaints go down? Police know their behaviour is being


recorded every step of the way so there is some kind of subconscious


decision to act more professionally. That perhaps is having the effect of


cooling down potentially volatile encounters in the same regard as the


public are warned the cameras are switched on, so they know that


anything they do could be used in evidence against them. So it's a


complex interaction that I think both the public and the police are


modifying their behaviour. Talk us through a couple of practical


examples of how they work? Body worn cameras are a familiar piece of kit


across the UK. They have been around for ten years but more and more


officers now have them. We have footage from the West Midlands


showing an incident in which press were called to reports -- police


were called to reports of a stabbing. You can hear the sights


and sounds from this particular incident in the West Midlands and it


can obviously help officers when they are supposed to give an


account, they can say, here is the footage, here is exactly what


happened. Here is the clip. Officer with a Taser! Drop the knife


now! Put the knife down on the floor! Put it down! Get out! Get


down on the floor! Put your arms out where I can see them. Do it now!


That was one clip from West Midlands police. What officers are telling us


is that they're most useful in cases of domestic violence. When they go


to an incident and record what's happened, perhaps a very upset


victim or a perhaps who perhaps has been injured and that evidence can


then be used in court even in cases where the victim, the next day


retracts her evidence or says they don't want to cooperate with police,


and there have been a number of successful convictions. Here is an


example of the body worn footage again from West Midlands police in a


domestic violence case. I just want him to leave my home.


Calm yourself down. Really upsetting but can be crucial


evidence. Yes, very crucial evidence and is really a game-changer in some


domestic violence cases. I want to ask you about Searle


Bernard Hogan-Howe, the country's top police officer and an anonesment


-- and an announcement that he's retiring. He has had a controversial


period in charge? The Met lost Sir Stevenson, there was talk about


divisions and splits and leaks, too cosy a relationship with the press


and Sir Bernard had to steady the ship. Sir Bernard's ran a tight ship


having to oversee cuts. There have been controversies, particularly in


his relations with the press, with the Plebgate affair, but south-east


been seen to be in command of the force in a way that perhaps some of


the previous incumbents of that role haven't been. The surprise is the


announcement because we were told his contract, which was running out


in autumn, would be extended to next autumn. So going a few months ahead


of the start of that contract is a surprise. I wonder if there had been


discussions with Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, and it's become


apparent that the Mayor would want a new person in charge next year and


he's decided to go early because of that. I don't know if that is the


case, but that is a suspicion. Let me introduce you to Che Donald


from the Police Federation Benjamin Read,


his company designs and supplies cameras to 21 police


forces in the UK. a solicitor who works


on police misconduct cases. And in our Leeds Studio,


we have Chief Inspector Ian Williams You've brought some


cameras with you, can Pull the switch down, you can hear a


beep so when an officer wants to record, they get audio confirm


confirmation they are recording because sometimes they won't be able


to check. The screen is displaying the footage in real time so the


person being recorded can see themselves. We are just obviously


recording our camera at the moment and Matt who is behind it. Sure.


This has really a great impact on the behaviour of the person being


recorded. Not only are they aware they are being filmed but there is a


visible demonstration, they can actually see themselves on camera.


You mean the person being recorded can see themselves so that has an


impact on them? . Yes. How do you access what is being recorded? At


the end of the shift, an officer will come back and dock the camera


in a docking station, our software will then automatically pull that


footage off the camera into a secure software which we provide, it's


automatically categorised, everything is password and


user-level protected and there the officer is able to search back all


the footage from the cameras they have been using. They are able to


look at the footage, edit it, share it with whatever needs to see it. ?


Edit it? So if there is a 20-minute clip so they need three minutes of


it, they are able to cut out the three minutes to send to the courts


perhaps to be viewed by a jury. But if the prosecution wanted the whole


20 minutes they could have that? Exactly, yes. The original file is


never altered, it's a new file that's created. OK, so you are


wearing one which clips on to your shirt. I am. If it was a police


officer it would be one of these? That's right. Why does that keep


beeping? I just keep turning it on and now it's recording. Depending on


the mounting method, most will not use a clip, they'll use this which


is a clip stud. It's actually how they secure the radio and all sorts


of bits of kit on. It's the most secure way of mounting and it will


click in like that. It's very difficult to take off so it's a good


mounting solution. Let's bring in the police officer, Chief Inspector


Ian Williams from West Yorkshire Police. Welcome to the programme.


What do you think of the body cameras? Good morning. Yes, they're


excellent. We have rolled out 2,000 of them in West Yorkshire, we are in


the process of doing that. We did that on the back of the study which


we were part of. The learning we got from that wasn't just about reduced


complaints, there were all sorts of benefits that we really need to


emphasise, such as the reduction in time spent at court, the fact that


vulnerable victims no longer need to go in certain cases. The increased


detection rate. Complaints is a small part of it and that's not the


driving force for why we have done it, it's more about accountability


and really sort of supporting victims, that's the driving force


behind it for West Yorkshire Police. Sure but it's had a modifying effect


on police officer's behaviour. What do you think about that - clearly a


good thing - but what do you say about the fact that the cameras are


having this impact? I'm sure it does have an impact on what they are


thinking when they're there, but at the end of the day police officers


are professional people. I draw your attention to some recent examples.


We had a complaint made to the police recently where the officers


were wearing body-worn footage and the allegation was in relation to


the way that this lady had been treated and damage caused and, the


footage was looked at early on in the investigation, and it was found


to be completely at odds with what the complainant had said. She was


phoned back and told this and she withdrew the complaint, so it's not


just about the behaviour of officers but suspects as well that are being


dealt with because they'll change their behaviour when they know they


are on camera. It's about the reduced complaints because people


won't make malicious complaints any more which we get a lot of. It's


about early resolution of people that make genuine complaints too


because it's absolutely right that that shouldn't be dragged out and


take any longer than it needs to. We can get that resolution quickly with


body Armour. Shay McDonald, for your members and officers out and about


doing their job wearing these, are there any disadvantages? No, I don't


think so. When body worn cameras were first introduced, there was a


bit of scepticism. Officers saw the benefits that the cameras provided.


It changed that mindset. From the federation point of view, we'd


recommend that every police officer that's front line has access at


least to body worn video. It's a prerequisite that if you have it,


you are equipped with it. Does the individual officer have


control over when she or he switches the camera on? He or she does. So it


depends entirely on the way that the situations are recorded upon when


that officer switches on the camera itself. In the study that was


produced, the cameras were on all the time.


Most definitely switched on before they arrived. The study also went on


to show that if it was switched on half way through, it changed the


playing field somewhat, so although it's fantastic and the numbers are


great, it's not overall the panacea to resolving police complaints. I


think the study makes reference to that as well. Lawrence Barker, your


firm fights the cases of misconduct. What have you heard about the use of


body cameras? We are cautiously positive about their introduction


generally. Chief Inspector Williams picked up on a single case where a


complaint may not have been warranted but there are thousands of


justified complaints each year. Anything that increases police


accountability is going to be a positive thing. We have seen


concerns expressed over the operation of the devices. Meaning


when they are switched on? Yes and we had a case for instance where the


allegation by a client is that the police engaged in a situation,


turned the camera on and there was an initial period where they dealt


with each other and it was fine. The camera was then turned off and there


is an alleged assault and the camera is turned back on again. And so all


the time officers have control over whether the camera is recording or


not, that is going to be open to that sorted of abuse. Do you accept


that? Yes, without a doubt. It's user-operated. All the time the user


has control of it when switchling the camera on or off, what is


recorded is down to the user. -- switching. The IPCC who investigate


offences against police showed an increase in police complaints year


on year for the last three years. What's also interesting to note is


that although 37,000 complaints were recorded, only 31,000 were


investigated. Of those 31,000 that were investigated, 14% were shown to


be upheld. So we also have to be mindful that a lot of times police


officers in a front-facing role do face complainants. There are serious


concerns over the way in which the police investigate complaints


leading to such low numbers of complaints being upheld. But that is


a separate argument. Again that was the IPCC. Is there any way around


the example that you gave dealing with a client where allegedly an


officer recorded the first bit, switched it off, there is an alleged


assault on the individual and a member of public and then after


that, the cameras go back on. Any procedures you could introduce that


would get around that or not? We'd like to think that in such an


incident there would have been two officers. Were there two? I don't


know, I don't believe so. If there were two officers, they should


have... But if there's just one officer? Then the officer is going


to have to explain their own actions. Any use of force undertaken


by a police officer has to revert back to the justification behind


that. I would say that if you have entered into an incident, why not


leave the camera running all the way through because it would only leave


you with difficult questions to answer later. It also comes back


down to policies and Police Departments. It's important there is


a robust policy in place. We like to help our clients get those in place.


Yes, so education as well of the officers, if they had a good clear


policy as to when they should start recording and stop, if they are


educated correctly, hopefully problems like that can be avoided.


Chief Inspector Williams, there is a serious issue about recording at


events like protests and keeping footage of people without their


knowledge isn't there? There are concerns about that.


Obviously this whole thing that you have been discussing involves the


Human Rights Act. We are very kaifshl about how we train that and


we give comprehensive training in relation to all of that -- careful.


You are right about that and people do have the right to information


access requests to find out if they've been captured on any


footage. We do have imaging departments that can blank out faces


of people who're not involved in an incident, so if we have kept that


footage for an evidential reason, anything that we display in a court


or anywhere else will have all the faces blanked out and it will only


concentrate on the subject matter, so all these things are in our


policy and we have discussed those at length with the IPCC, the College


of Policing, various other bodies and community groups. We have done


quite a lot of work on that to make sure we are taking everyone's views


into account. How much is one of these cameras? ?545, comes with the


licence to use the software, that's the whole package. Body-worn video


is not just about the camera. Is that cost effective, Che? It depends


on how much budgets are available to each individual forces. They have


been subjected to austerity measures and everyone's tightening their


belts. Some forces have ringfenced money for the introduction of the


cameras. But the camera itself is only part of the solution. The rest


is the back office system which is how you store the data, how you


access to data and a big problem with the UK policing is that IT


infrastructure isn't as good as it should be to be dealing with such


modern technology. OK. Thank you very much all of you.


This texter says, I'm a supervisor managing civil enforcement officers


for a local authority. We started using body cameras two years ago. We


have seen a reduction in assaults of over 50%. We also use the cameras


for evidence-gathering in disabled badge misuse cases and fraud. Our


cameras are always seen, never covert. Julie says recording by the


policely make the police behave and the people they are dealing with.


Zoe, why doesn't every force have body cameras and Paul says, as we


have seen in the States, they can be turned off and on and manipulated to


suit the needs of police officers sometimes. Who want to cover things


up. Still to come later in the


programme. Scientists warn that popular

getting a little riled when that first ball is hit tomorrow! We will!


Thank you. There's been a new development in an exclusive story


that we brought you a couple of weeks ago, the tax credit chaos


caused by the US firm Banbury Road and HMRC. Chris is in Belfast. Over


the last few weeks you've heard from benefit claimants who said, from


Concentrix, employed by the government to try to cut down on


benefit fraud in the system, benefit payments had wrongly been cut to


those claimants. Another development today. After the failings


highlighted, HM Revenue and Customs decided that Banbury Road's


contract, which was due to run until May next year would not be extended


beyond that. Today it has emerged that 150 temporary staff at the


Banbury Road offices in Belfast would lose their jobs tomorrow. The


company now say the staff were recruited on a short-term basis and


had been due to finish in August, last month, the firm says they are


working to minimise any impact on those who are going to lose their


jobs. Nonetheless the Northern Ireland Finance Minister says he is


concerned about this and he will contact the Treasury. That's the


latest development. Banbury Road have said that all the way through


their staff have followed guidelines laid down by HM Revenue and Customs.


Chris Page, from Belfast, thank you. The husband of a British-Iranian


woman jailed in Iran after visiting her parents


there on holiday is pleading Nazanin Ratcliffe was arrested


on issues of national security, separated from her two-year


old daughter and sentenced to five years in prison


after a secret trial. Now her husband Richard has turned


to the human rights organisation Let's talk to Nazanin's husband


Richard and Kathy Voss You still don't know, I think, what


your wife has been charged with. That's correct. She had a trial in


August. Sentencing was announced to because cleared. A sentence of five


years but on secrets charges. We've applied for an appeal that it is


secret as to which court will do the appeals are still no clue. She will


be able to appeal? As far as we know, we have filed for an appeal,


we don't know which court will do it.


The last time you spoke to her? She was sentenced on Tuesday, she called


me and clarified she had been given five years, that was two weeks ago,


that was the third call. How was she? Previously she has been sad and


broken, this time she was angry. I took it as a good sign. She says


that this has been going on for months, what are you doing, the


government has been negotiating and Theresa May has raised this with the


President more than a month ago, I am held every day, it is horrendous,


it is more than one fifth of my daughter's life that I have been


away, do you understand what that is like? Your little girl is with her


in Iran, how is she? She is too young to understand. She cannot come


back, they have a passport although we have asked for it. Yesterday her


mother called so she was happy and was saying that she had spoken to


her memory. She was dancing and jumping off the sofa. -- she'd


spoken to her mummy. You seem calm. I go through phases and when bad


news happens I fight it for a couple of days and then feed it afterwards.


At the moment we are in the face of thinking, whatever next. Kathy Voss


from Amnesty, is there a chance of a deal because recently there was a


woman accused of doubling in feminism and she was released. She


was arrested in June, she was released on Monday on humanitarian


grounds because she was extremely sick and had actually been released


into a hospital. The Canadians managed to bring about her release


on Monday. We at Amnesty have been in contact with Richard for months,


working on the campaign and getting our activists to write letters.


Shortly after Nazanin was arrested we wrote to Boris Johnson asking him


to meet with the family and with Nazanin and make a public statement


calling for her release although we haven't had it yet. Have you had a


response from Mr Johnson's office? Liverpool we haven't. We know that


he received our request. We still waiting. What could he do, call


publicly for Iran to release your wife? Liverpool the government has


raised this case at the highest levels, we know, Theresa May spoke


to the president about it and David Cameron did before her, they have


said they know about the case and are working on it although there is


no public stance on calling for her release so until they do that we


don't know if they are making this the priority that they say they are.


Right. Is your thinking that your wife is being held on political


grounds? Honestly, yes. She was sentenced the day after the British


Embassy was attacked. I understand that there is a part of a round that


wants to make friends and apart from that wants to stop that. It is the


part that wants to stop that that is using her as a bargaining chip.


There's a reason why she was taken while relations were improving,


taking a mother and baby is about as provocative as possible. Why have


secrets charges? If it is to say, this is a political situation, we


can solve it through political means, I think that is exactly what


has happened. The statement from the Foreign Office is this.


"We are deeply concerned by reports that Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe has been


sentenced without confirmation of the charges made against her.


The Prime Minister and Foreign Secretary have both raised her case


with their counterparts in Iran and will continue to do so.


Minister for the Middle East,


Tobias Ellwood, has met the family to reassure them


that we will continue to do all we can.


That is all true. We don't know what that is. We have seen that


governments that intervene can secure releases, we did see some


prisoners released from around a couple of years ago after pressure


on the government so we can see that this happens. We want to see the


government doing absolutely everything they can to make sure


that she is released. Thank you, both of you.


Later, after their success in Rio, Welsh athletes will be feted


with a massive carnival party in Cardiff later -


we'll be speaking to four of the medallists going.


Now, if you take the painkiller ibuprofen, you increase the risk


of going into hospital with a heart problem by a fifth.


A huge study that looked at the use of the drug by nearly 10 million


people found that in the fortnight after taking the painkiller,


those with an average age of 77 who took it were 19% more likely


to be admitted to hospital with a heart


If taken regularly this painkiller can cause heart attack or a truck.


Heart failure is the leading cause of hospital admissions for those


over 65. With me is Helen Williams,


she's a Consultant Pharmacist for Cardiovascular Disease with


the Royal Pharmaceutical Society. So what should people watching do if


they take this painkiller regularly? The headlines are a bit alarming


today. Are they accurate? Accurate in relation to this specific study.


The patients were on average aged 77. So young patients buying


ibuprofen for a sports injury or for back pain, this isn't a problem for


them. We need to reassure them. But for older patients we do need to be


cautious. Meaning what? Most older patients are probably not buying the


ibuprofen they are taking for things like arthritis, they are getting it


from prescription from the GP who will help them to calculate the


benefits and the risks of the drug and give them monitoring, we know


these things can affect the kidneys so they need regular kidney


monitoring when they take these things routinely for this sort of


pain. Should we be able to buy this stuff over-the-counter? As I said,


for younger patients aged 20, 30, 40, taking these drugs for short


courses to treat sharp pain, they are not at risk in this way. It's


the older patients who tend to be frailer and have other diseases that


put them at risk of problems like hypertension or diabetes and maybe


already their kidneys are showing strain. They need to be monitored by


a GP and properly supported if they are undergoing this sort of therapy.


Broadly speaking, do we use these painkillers to regularly? You can


get them in the supermarket. Absolutely. These are


anti-inflammatories so suitable for joint or muscle pain, if you have a


headache take paracetamol, you don't need anti-inflammatory drugs for


that. It's about choosing the right drag the right type of pain. I think


what you mean is, if you are around 77 and using please don't


immediately stop. You have to go back to your GP and work it out


together. There will be risks but also benefits, or else he would not


be on it. Absolutely and people, like if


people have rheumatoid arthritis, they need the drugs. Are there


alternatives, antiinflammatories that don't increase risk of heart


failure? The purpose of the study was to look at all the different


types of nonsteroid antiinflammatory and some are much likery to cause


heart problems than others, so ibuprofen, that is in the lower end


of risk so we are already minimising risk. Also using the lowests do to


kill the -- dose to kill the pain and where possible minimising the


duration of treatment. Thank you very much.


We get the latest from Oxford where a teenage girl has been


assaulted after being grabbed off the street in Oxford

So how does it feel to come back to your hometown with gold,


and what message do our athletes hope to bring to their


Let's talk now to four Welsh athletes who all brought back


Hollie Arnold, who won gold in Paralympic javelin.


Hollie was born without a right forearm.


one after winning gold in Paralympic wheelchair table tennis.


Hollie, your throw, an incredible world record throw of 43 metres. How


did you do it? ! I knew I could go out there and


possibly break the world record, just didn't expect to break it by


quite that much just because I had a shoulder injury for two months but I


just went out there and did it with every faith in myself. Can we just


see your medal because it's just below the camera. Oh, it's


beautiful. Very shiny. When you put that on in the morning, what do you


feel like? It feels heavy! But it feels really happy and I look


down at it and realise that this is, all my hard work, all the training,


sacrificing I've done and everybody else around me, yes, I guess it just


is probably the best jewellery any girl can wear!


Even better than diamonds! Even better! Rob, let's have a look at


yours? Beautiful. What a close-up. Love it. That final for you was so


tense, so emotional. Just talk us through that from your point of


view? Yes, it was just amazing when I realised I'd won, it was so


exhilarating. There was a lot of pressure and training that had gone


into it. I let it all out pretty much and yes, just to keep calm in


the last end, you know, dream come true for me really.


Have you come down yet or not? I think it's quite hard, to be


honest. There are a lot of things going on, a lot of media. For me,


it's my first medal of course and my second Paralympics, just enjoying it


at the moment and yes, just enjoying holding this and giving this a


rattle every day. I love that noise, I love that sound!


In terms of being involved in this parade, people are going to come


out, praise and applaud you. I suppose you want to say thank you to


people for supporting you as well don't you? Yeah, for sure, definite.


Huge support back here in Wales and I've got to thank everyone from when


I started playing table-tennis, the Sport Wales guys, to the gays that


put the tables up every day and the people that we don't see, you know,


the fans, thank you very much for being behind us all the way. I think


Victoria's joined us as well, she won silver with Katherine Grainger,


good morning! Hi, good morning. How are you? Good, thank you. Have you


come down yet, what are you thinking several weeks on? Yes, it's


obviously been a bit further away for us than the Paralympics but it's


been nice to come home, the Olympics was an amazing experience and a wa


great silver for Katherine and me. Coming home seeing family and


friends has been lovely, being able to share it with them as well. You


are from a small place called St Asatisfied, is that how you say it


-- St Asaph. When you go home and you have this medal around your


neck, what is the community saying to you? We live near Wrexham, I've


just had lots of letters of congratulations from the Mayor and


everything and it's been really lovely to see that my town back home


have been watching and they've been cheering me on as well.


Hollie, you were injured two months before when you turn up at the


parade with a gold, that's quite an astonishing achievement isn't it?


Yes, I guess. I wasn't going to let that small injury bother me going


out there, I've trained so hard, it's my third Paralympics, I wanted


to go out there and hopefully make it a lucky one. I had so much


support. Everybody helped me and also Loughborough had to go there


for recovery, so just everybody's effort worked and just went out


there and did exactly what I wanted to do. Your third Paralympics did


you say? No, it's my third. Third, yes. And you are still what, 22?


Yes. So what more can we have from you over the next few years?


Hopefully plenty. I'm still just 22, still a built of a young chicken,


but hopefully plenty more to come! What about you Victoria and Tokyo,


what are you thinking? Still taking time to think about it. It's a lot


of commitment and another four years in rowing, so I love the sport, but


I've got to make sure if I go back I'm doing it for absolutely the


right reasons but just some time to speak to a few people and think


about what's best and whether I want to go for another four or not. It's


a big decision isn't it? Yes, it is. You have to put your life on hold in


some ways and you sacrifice a lot to do the training it takes to become


an Olympian, let alone an Olympic champion. It takes a lot of


dedication. It's something to think about seriously, yes.


Rob, what about you and Tokyo? It's quite exciting, the thought of it.


Obviously like the guys said before, it's a big commitment, sacrifice,


the family has to sacrifice a fair bit as well. I'm excited for it,


it's in the back of my mind and there are a lot of young new tall


ens coming up through the ranks in GB at the moment, Tom Matthews,


another Welsh lad. It would be good to go there maybe do something --


new talent. Tokyo will be a great amazing experience, I'm sure.


Thank you very much. Enjoy the parade. Hollie, enjoy it, Rob and


Victoria. Thank you very much. We'll get the latest from Oxford as


a schoolgirl was abducted and sexually assaulted on her way to


school. Police are warning that school children should walk together


in groups. Coming up 2010 o'clock. The news and


sport in a minute but first the weather with Matt. What's happening?


Good morning. The nights are starting to draw in. Some may be


thinking of heading somewhere that bit warmer and sunnier, the southern


hemisphere for example, Australia. If we could afford it, we'd all love


to two to Australia, blimey! This whole mass of cloud looks


picturesque here, but this is a storm with a punch. One of the


deepest storm systems they have had in Australia for decades and it's


had massive impacts, as well as impacts to travel, there's been


flooding around, damage, destruction. The entire state of


south Australia, including the capital Adelaide were without power


yesterday morning. These are big storms in Yes and it's not over yet


with a few days to go. Winds up to 60-70mph, 120mm worth of rain that,


will push on to Tasmania and impact New South Wales as well. Puts into


perspective our winds last night. We have had similar wind strengths this


morning but perhaps not the impact they've had.


But yes, Australia looking down the eye of a spring storm at the moment.


For us, it's an autumn storm across the UK at present.


It's been producing gloomy skies. It's the wind strength that has been


the main concern. Caithness and Sutherland and Orkney, this is where


the wind strength is peaking. Elsewhere over Scotland, winds gust


50, 60mph, which has been impacting the ferries and the bridges as well.


Persistent across the Highlands at the moment.


Better chance of dry weather to the east of Scotland. Winds picking up


in Northern Ireland and northern England, touching gale force at


times throughout the day. Some showers across the north, into


Wales, and a good part of England and Wales dry now with sunshine.


Lots of cloud through the Midlands now clearing. Outbreaks of rain into


the afternoon in parts of East Anglia and the south-east. As that


pushes away, we introduce the fresher air.


It's going to feel fresh out there. A blustery afternoon, lots of


sunshine for England and Wales. More showers for Northern Ireland. Plenty


for western Scotland here too. The good news is, the winds ease


later in the day and tonight there'll be enough of a breeze


around to push the showers into the west. Away from that, in clearer


skies, a chilly night. Eastern areas down to single figures in rural


parts. Northern Scotland could get to around two or three degrees. But


you may get to see the Northern Lights once again, like recent


nights. Friday morning, a fresher start compared with today. Sunshine


around and it will be one of those days, shower clouds pushing in from


the west. You may get lucky and avoid them all together, you may see


one or two showers throughout the day, but the showers clouds will be


there, drier weather in-between them.


We continue with the cool theme into the weekend.


The start of the weekend, low pressure is the name of the game


particularly for England and Wales. Widespread rain to start the day.


Heavy bursts mixed in. Things turn drier and brighter for the west


later on. Further north, lighter winds and for


Scotland and Northern Ireland some will get away with a largely dry


day. A general cool theme for the weekend. Wettest on Saturday,


sunniest on Sunday and indeed most of us will see dry weather on


Sunday. Breezy to the East Coast of England with a few showers, then


cloudy and windy in the west later. Enjoy your day.

The inquiry into child sexual abuse in England and Wales has been thrown


into fresh chaos with the suspension of its most senior lawyer.


A spokeswoman said officials had recently become very


concerned about aspects of Ben Emmerson's leadership.


The inquiry was set up more than two years ago, but has been hit


by delays and the resignation of three chairwomen.


Let's talk to our correspondent Tom Symonds who's at the inquiry


Another problem for this inquiry. Absolutely, Ben. Ben Emmerson is an


important person in this inquiry, one of the senior figures with it


from the beginning, seen as a driving force pushing the inquiry


through although incredibly it has lost three previous chairs and is on


its fourth, Professor Alexis Jay. The inquiry has, I am told, received


complaints about him. There is no more detailed than that, more than


one complaint. An investigation has begun. The inquiry also took time to


dismiss suggestions in the press in the last few days that Ben Emmerson


had been on the point of resigning because of his concerns about the


way in which the inquiry is going, the size of it and the fact that


there was a social worker at the head of it rather than a judge or a


senior lawyer. So the inquiry is saying that they believe he did not


raise those concerns and we understand there were discussions


about his position yesterday, given this investigation going on. All of


which throws the investigation into, if not a crisis, of the feeling of


crisis. I've spoken this morning to several groups involved in


representing survivors of child abuse, some say they will pull out


all together, others say they are deeply frustrated about what is


going on. This inquiry relies on the trust of those involved and they


feel they are not getting it at the moment. Tom, thank you.


The Italian Prime Minister, Matteo Renzi, has told the BBC it

Complaints against the police have fallen by up to 90% in forces


A study involving 2,000 officers in England, Northern Ireland


and the United States found that the cameras had a big impact


on the behaviour of officers, and the people they deal with.


The findings are being published in the journal


Che Donald from the Police Federation told this programme that


body worn cameras shouldn't be considered a magic bullet


The cameras were on all the time, and most definitely switched on


before they arrived at an incident. The study also went on to show that


if it was switched on halfway to the incident it did change the playing


field somewhat. So although it is fantastic and the numbers are great,


it is not over all the panacea to resolving police complaints and I


think the study refers to that as well.


There's been a new development in one of the stories we've been

Now the BBC understands that 150 temporary staff


at the Belfast office of Concentrix are to be let go tomorrow.


The company said the workers involved had been due

The move is related to the decision by HMRC not to renew a call-handling


That's a summary of the latest BBC News, more at 10.30.


Thank you, thanks to David who said that police body cameras were


brilliant innovation but he said he could understand reservations about


an officer having too much control over the camera, could it not be


operated so that it comes on when the sound level is raised to a level


above normal speech? When travelling in the car and using please radio it


wouldn't need to come on but when voices are raised, it could mean


things get heated. Mamadou Sakho C welcomes the cameras, hopes they


will bring them into police stations, he has been wrongly


accused of criminal damage by police officers who used nothing more than


intimidation. Do get in touch with us

latest manager named in the sting into football corruption, the QPR


manager was filmed appearing to negotiate a ?55,000 deal to act as


ambassador to a sports company who then proposed the sale of players to


his club. The club say they will launch a full investigation.


Barnsley assistant manager Tommy Wright has been suspended by the


club after publicly accepting a ?5,000 bank to assist in the buying


and selling of players. Both deny any wrongdoing. More on this story


later in the programme. What a match last night between Celtic and


Manchester City in the Champions League. A six goal thriller. It


finished 3-3. This was after Mousa Dembele had given Celtic the lead.


And he got his second and Celtic's third in the second half. Again City


came back to level the match at 3-3, this was the equaliser after the


shot from Aguero came off the keeper. Manager Pep Guardiola was on


a ten match winning run, his best ever start in his managerial career.


Arsenal also played last night, straightforward 2-0 win over Basle


at the Emirates Stadium, Theo Walcott scored both goals. They


finished joint top of the group along with Paris St Germain. After


the match Arsene Wenger spoke about speculation linking him with the


England manager's job, no vacant after Sam Allardyce left on Monday.


This is what Arsene Wenger said. My priority has always been this club


and until the end of this season, I am here. I am completely focused on


that. Do you know the words of the English national anthem? Yes! I


know! You never know! That could come in handy. Another manager


linked to the vacant England position is Eddie Howe of


Bournemouth. He has described it as the ultimate job and added that he


is very much committed to his club at the moment. Before the Ryder Cup


begins tomorrow the brother of Danny Willett, one of the European cup


team, has come out with some astonishing criticism of American


golf fans, calling them a bunch of imbecile is. He was writing in an


article for a golf magazine. This is what he said. He said that Europe


needed to silence the pudgy, basement dwelling the obnoxious


dads, with their shiny teeth, Lego man hair, medicated ex-wives and


resentful children. As you can imagine, Danny Willett has


apologised for these comments by his brother. I'd just like to apologise


to everyone involved, it is not the thoughts of myself, of the team, or


of Captain Darren Clarke. I said to Peter that I was disappointed in


what was said and written about the American fans. I went to see Davis


and we had a chat about it all. He took it very well. I think he has


drawn a line under it, for himself, and for the team. I think it will


certainly adds spice between the teams when play begins tomorrow.


Brothers, who needs them! Thank you, John.


For several months now, an aid worker in Iraq has been


recording a video diary for you of what life


is like for families who've been left homeless by the conflict


between fighters from the so-called Islamic State


Her footage certainly puts our own challenges into perspective.


In her latest video diary, Dr Bernadita Gaspar


of the International Medical Corp says this.


"In the midst of the most difficult times, you see


the goodness of humanity", and then she cries.


Her footage shows family homes destroyed by fighting,


villages raised to the ground, and images of burning oil fields


with dark smoke filling the usually blue sky.


You'll see Dr Gaspar travelling with her team into areas that have


been newly liberated from IS control.


After nine months of being in Iraq, I would think that I would


understand more and know more about what is happening.


But the opposite seems to be the case.


This is the grab bag in here, so it is full of water in there.


The team is preparing to go for an assessment to Tinah village.


This village is south-west of Erbil, where we have our base office.


This village has been one of the areas that has been liberated


They're saying about 60 families arrived in Tinah.


There's 40 or 50 families have gone to Debaga.


You see there's a lot of destroyed buildings and destroyed houses.


One minute your house is there, the next minute your house is gone.


I mean, it's lucky if it's just a house, but then people will tell


us that there would be family members who would be,


who are hurt and worse, who are killed as well.


Oh, my goodness, just look at their faces!


It's September 24th and it's a very happy day for most of the displaced


families that have been living in this camp for more


than two months now, because today they've managed


to arrange transportation to go back to their villages


We can see a long line of trucks in the background.


These are families that will be going back home today.


It seems that, from their faces, we can see that it doesn't

In the last few days, I've met a lot of interesting people.


I've come to know persons that have stories to tell, and also

Experts believe the next flashpoint in Iraq is Mosul,


it's still under the control of IS militants and just yesterday


the USA and Iraqi government agreed a plan to send an extra 600


American soldiers to Iraq to try to help retake Mosul.


Try and picture yourselves living in a city


controlled by brutal IS, knowing that that a some point


there's going to be a battle to try to liberate it?


Let me introduce you to DR Ahmed Sabani who is from Mosul


Tell us about Mosul, it was a lovely city to grow up in? It was is second


largest city after Baghdad and Iraq, so it's a very big, beautiful city


in the North of Iraq. Life was so normal inside the city before 2014.


You can't separate Mosul from other parts of Iraq. There were some


security situations, bad situations, but, you know, it was normal, you


know, people are living their normal life. You can't separate from other


parts of Mosul, but after 2014, everything is changed. It's been


like a traumatic change in Mosul because Isis suddenly took oaf the


city -- over the city and they were like a big seagull on the city and


people are like hostages, you know. And for your family who're there,


who was there in Mosul? All of my family member. Parents? Brother,


sisters, cousins, I have a lot of cousins. All of them, they are like


hostages in the city now. Isis has started to, from the first they


started to force people to follow the Shari'a rules and make life very


hard and they have tough punishment for everybody who doesn't follow


their Shari'a rule. Can you give us an example of things that your


relatives have to do now because IS are in control that they didn't have


to do before or things they are not allowed to do any more? Yes, to be


honest, there are many challenges. In terms of the situation, it's very


bad because the vast majority of people in Mosul are government


employees. It's impossible to establish any new building within


the city. It's hard to run an existing business in there. An


example of that, men are forced to make like a beard to follow Shari'a


and women must cover their faces. Anybody doesn't follow these things


will be punished by Isis. For your relatives, similar? Similar


thing, yes, horrible stories that we hear about daily. We have extended


family and friends there, colleagues, many fled the city, went


to other parts of Iraq or actually fled the country. It's a very


horrible situation economically financially, socially, so people


can't live there because of the security situation, they leave their


houses, they can't work. I'm trying to imagine getting into their shoes,


if you like, you are living under IS, you don't want to, there is a


big battle coming down the road at some point, you want to be liberated


but the fear of the violence that's going to be perpetrated... It's


definitely enormous. Nobody knows what the results of the military


offensive will be, hopefully with the least civil casualties.


With your defence and security expertise, tell us what we can


expect when Iraqi government soldiers turn up and start fighting?


Mosul has been under occupation for over two years now, so that means


they have had time to prepare, Isis have, building booby traps, setting


up defensive positions in hospitals, schools, mosques, forcing coalition


forces and Iraqi forces deciding whether to target those places or


not. In other important places, small towns, things have been


happening, but Mosul is a big place. Two million people? There are now


1.5 people. Still a lot of people. House-to-house fighting that, even


with success, will cause enormous destruck on of what was a fine,


flourishing city -- enormous destruction. The other challenge is,


there are multiple different groups fighting to take it back. There are


Shia militias commanded by Iran, Kurdish forces who have their own


objectives and ambitions to rule over parts of Mosul and American


forces over 5,000 of them now who're directly flying Apache attacked


helicopters around Mosul. You can imagine how complex an operation is


with that many forces. Which leads us to the looming humanitarian


situation there which is going to be serious? Exactly. We don't know


exactly how this offensive is going to go, but we know it will be a


disaster for children and families still trapped. That's 1.5 million


people. Half of them are children. They are currently trapped because


the checkpoints are all around Mosul, there are landmines, so they


face a terrible decision, whether to stay there, be caught in the


crossfire, to be used as a human shield or to take the journey which


is going to be very risky. Do you want your relatives to get out or


stay? It's quite a hard decision, you know. People inside the city


left with a very hard and difficult options. Unbelievable. People who're


trying to flee the city will be expected to be at extreme risk. But


what do you want your parents, your brother, your sister, your cousins


to do? There is a trade-off, you know. You can escape life there but


you could find yourself in the worst case scenario in a conflict, you


could be a war victim. What do you want your relatives to do? Well, I


want the best for them. It's nearly impossible to leave the city, but I


think if there are opportunities to leave, why not, they should I think


use it. It's better to leave. Interesting dimension of sectarian


politics in Mosul than Iraq, historically there's been a small


Sunni majority in Mosul. The vast majority are Sunnis. But of course,


one of the key forces on the ground that's most effective will most


no-holds barred in the way it fights are the Shia militias, many under


control of the state, some under the control of Iran. That creates


inevitable tensions when a Shia majority force may take over or


detain lots of Sunni individuals with a prior history of sectarian


tensions in some of these areas. So there are fears above the


consequences -- about the consequences of that as well. You


have just come back from Iraq, what did you see there in terms of the


children you were trying to help? So people are already being displaced


from Mosul and from areas that have already been taken. I spoke to


people who had made a journey from Mosul and to a mother in particular


who was fleeing with her three children, including a four-month-old


baby and she was Dodging Bullets while trying to leave. She reached


safety, but there's also this worry for those who are able to leave


afterwards on whether we'll be able to respond to the humanitarian


needs. We estimate this is going to be the biggest humanitarian crisis


by the end of this year. Thank you all of you, very much, for


coming on the programme. Thank you, thank you, nice to see you, thank


you. Jeremy Corbyn urged his party to end

Independent Chairman of the Association of Football


Agents. He only started in the

the role yesterday. Why do we need agents? They play an important role,


not just in the football industry but in many industries. You use an


agent to negotiate your deals, footballers want to concentrate on


playing football, being the best possible player they can be, they


don't have the time or the skills necessarily to negotiate, to


understand rules and regulations, to talk to sponsors, to be up-to-date


with the latest things. Football's got loads of time -- footballers.


They... They've got loads of time? They spend a lot of time in the gym,


they spend time thinking about the game. They don't spend time thinking


about the game! The point is, they need people like agents to help them


out so they can get the best possible deal. We don't want a


return to the good old days when a footballer would walk in, the


manager would say, here's two and six, a contract for another year,


thank you very much and walk away. They deserve to be paid properly as


the entertainers that they are. Sure, but what is allegedly


happening according to the Daily Telegraph in a small minority of


cases is that managers and agents are doing deals together and that is


potentially corrupt? In every industry, walk of life, there are


good people and bad people. There are people who try and bend the


rules, there are people who try to break the rules. What the


Association of football agents are saying is, we need to have proper


regulation within the game to make sure that those temptations aren't


put in people's way. Where will that regulation come from, which


organisation? Originally Fifa regulated this aspect of the game. A


few years ago they decided to deregulate it but the agents thought


was a huge mistake. So it has to involve everyone because it's an


international game, has to involve Fifa, UEFA and the Football


Association. Or agents could just not be corrupt, they could do it


without regulations, they are groundups? In every walk of life,


you need regulation. We have seen what's happened in the City and


other activities. You need proper regulation. Also it's a question of


building and maintaining trust. Again, if n the old days, to become


an agent, you had to pass a test, have insurance, prove that you were


worthy and professional. Anyone who wants to use an agent wants to know


that they'll represent them properly and that they have the skills to be


able to do so. If you have proper regulation, proper code of conduct,


you have trust and you know that you can choose from among aple of people


who know what they are doing and can help you.


There are many, many, many professional agents who do a really


good job for their clients. Many behave impeccably, but I wonder, do


you think it's possible for business of football to become more


transparent which would also potentially lead to more


accountability? We do think it is. Not just possible


but also necessary. Agents want to do the best for their


clients. They also want to play on a level playing field. They don't want


other people to get work at their expense by doing things which are


illegal or immoral which they would not do themselves. So regulation


actually helps everyone. Transparency is very important.


And in terms of some of the kind of staggering fees that some agents


require for high-profile transfers, how do you justify that? Agents do a


lot of good work, it takes a long time to become a proficient agent.


You have to make sure you are up to speed on regulations, rules, be a


good negotiator, I think agents get what they deserve in terms of they


should be paid for doing their work just like anyone else.


Thank you very much. Thank you, you only began the job


yesterday! Thank you. Now the latest news with Ben.

It is not just about the behaviour of officers but about the behaviour


of suspects dealt with because they will change their behaviour when


they know they are on camera. It's about reduced complaints because


people want make malicious complaints any more and we do get a

genuine complaint because it is right that that should not be

that resolution quickly with body worn cameras. This programme wrote a

More details on the abduction of the Oxford schoolgirl yesterday, we will


speak to Elizabeth Wade who is better councillor in the area where


it happened, good morning, how has the community reacted? And is a


close community and we don't have much crime. This is the last thing


we would have expected. The community will be concerned about


this girl and other people in the community, there are a lot of


schools, primary schools and two secondary schools and throughout the


day children are coming and going and it's always been a comfortable


place to be. Now we have every parent's nightmare and every child's


nightmare. I think it's very shocking. This happened in broad


daylight at half past eight in the morning. I am told it is a really


busy area as well. Incredibly busy, a major crossing between two bits of


the time, traffic queues, people the time, traffic queues, people


complain about the traffic all the time, children are around all the


time, it should have been a completely safe place for this go to


be. It does make one realise that one cannot be careful enough and


that children should go around at least in twos and threes. They


should not be alone until whoever perpetrated this terrible thing has


been caught. I know that the police are working very hard on this this


morning. Hopefully, they will have success later in the day.


This schoolgirl was abducted and sexually assaulted at 838 in this


area of Oxford, she was found at midday knocking on nearby doors of

Jeremy Corbyn has ended his party's conference in Liverpool by calling


on Labour MPs to "end the trench warfare" and get behind


He announced plans for a new fund to help areas with a lot


of immigration, asking business to help pay for education


through higher taxes, and promised to lift borrowing


restrictions on councils to let them build more homes.


He also said the party should prepare for a general election,


which could happen as early as next year.


Our job is now two win over the unconvinced of our fission. Only


that we can we secure the Labour government we need. Let's be frank,


no one will be convinced of a vision promoted by a divided party. We all


agree on that. So I ask each and every one of you to accept the


decision of the members, and the trench warfare, and work together to


take on the Tories! - and the trench warfare.


And we can speak now to a Labour member who was very much


on the receiving end of abuse from party membes over the summer.


Johanna Baxter was a member of Labour's ruling NEC.


She's since lost her seat on that powerful committee.


This is Johanna talking to the BBC in July.


A number of us and a number of my colleagues in that room had been


subject to bullying and intimidation prior to the meeting. Certain groups


within the party published my personal contact details online.


One of my colleagues had recently had her stalker sectioned, she was


in tears and begged the leader for a secret ballot to protect her and


other colleagues who had received intimidating behaviour and Boeing.


The thing that upset me about that meeting was that the Labour Party


leader voted against a proposal to have a secret ballot. Let's speak to


Johanna Baxter now. Your first interview since leaving the NEC, the


ruling governing body. I know that you are a little nervous about


speaking now because you think it might lead to another torrent of


abuse which have already experienced and you don't want to again.


Absolutely. During that time on the national executive committee, until


that interview I had never spoken to the press. I only did because I felt


something needed to be said for change to be affected. That seemed


to perpetrate the abuse that was happening. So it intensified after


that, and I don't think any of that is helpful for the party. You will


have heard Jeremy Corbyn as everyone else did insist yesterday but this


kind of intimidation and abuse is absolutely not acceptable. I have


heard him say that so many times yet it seems to me that it still goes


on. That's right, Jeremy has always condemned abuse. I respect that from


him. The problem is that much of it is done in his name. It is all very


well for him to say the words, that he condemns abuse, but he has to be


seen tackling it, clamping down on it. Does that mean sanctions for


people who get involved in that kind of abuse? Absolutely, we have


policies within the party about the conduct of members and how they


should treat each other. Jeremy needs to be seen to enforce that.


Also there is a responsibility on him as leader to say, that is not


done in my name, and to call some of the worst of it out, when it


happens, when it is seen. What about sanctions, are you talking about


being banned from the party? The party has a number of types of


sanctions, disciplinary procedures. Do you know of anyone who has been


through those disciplinary procedures for bullying and


intimidation? In the recent leadership election one of those was


a bad saying that there should be no abuse within the leadership contest


so anyone found to be particularly abusive to other party members or


representatives, would have been dealt with through the processes


that were in place to deal with the leadership election. So some members


would not have had a vote in the leadership election because of that


conduct. Is a practical things are being done? That Haddin process


itself lead to a huge amount of abuse being inflicted on the people


involved in it. I think the problem is that Jeremy himself needs to show


leadership on that issue. Jeremy has a huge mandate to lead, and people


need to respect that, as I do. But his leadership should not be


unquestioning. I have never been an critical of any leader within the


party. -- Shashank. Where there are concerns, they should be heard. So


Jeremy has absolutely condemned abuse yet he see needs to be seen to


be taking action, not just words. Let's look at the speech, some of


the things mentioned sound like they should be in the next Labour


manifesto, whenever that is. Will it be enough to attract those who have


gone to Ukip from Labour, those who have voted Conservative since the


last time they voted Labour? Enough to attract the wider electorate?


Jeremy Purdy us on an election footing yesterday which I think is


probably right because I think Theresa may will hold a general


election earlier than 2020 Dodge Jeremy put us on an election


footing. If we are on an election footing we must begin the backing of


a lot of party members but it is not a detailed manifesto. We must find a


way of compiling that manifesto and we have a process in the party to do


that which is through the National policy Forum. One thing that


concerns me is that the national policy Forum hasn't met in the last


12 months at all. So I think it's incumbent on the leadership to


engage with the democratic process that we have in place in the party


to engage members in constructing the manifesto put to the nation.


Some of the ideas mentioned yesterday, are they appealing enough


to the numbers of voters that Labour will need if they want to win the


next general election? We must put flesh on the bones. It is all very


well for us to say that we will build more council homes, which I do


support but we must explain where the money is coming from all these


things. One question we had at the last election was about economic


competence so we need to demonstrate that we understand that concern and


we have a fully funded manifesto to present to the public. Thank you


very much a coming on the programme, Johanna Baxter.


Let me bring you this breaking news, it is from our health correspondent


Hugh Pym, it appears that young women when it comes to mental health


conditions have become a key high risk group, the gender gap has


widened, the proportion of 16-24 -year-old women reporting these


problems is up to 26% in 2014. Experts note that the growth has


coincided with the growth in social media usage although they are not


saying this is the course. Women between 16 and 24 reporting mental


health disorders, the number has risen by 5% in the last seven years.


Coming up we will talk to the boss of a police officer who used his


vehicle to save a female motorist and her baby after she went into a

A fiasco - that's how the inquiry into child sex abuse in England


and Wales has been described after it's most senior lawyer


It's the biggest public inquiry in British history, set up two years


ago by Theresa May and has already cost more than ?20 million.


And the latest turn, which sees Ben Emmerson QC


temporarily removed from his post has raised questions

the suspension comes after concerns about "aspects of Mr Emmerson's

the inquiry is now "careering out of control".


It's the latest in a line of controversies involving

after it was announced, but stood down a week later.


Dame Fiona Woolf succeeded her, but resigned after less

Now, Ben Emmerson QC, who has served as counsel


to the panel since October 2014, has been suspended from his role.


Yesterday the inquiry said they would investigate concerns over


Mr Emmerson said he was "unable" to comment at this time.


So what does this mean for the future of the Inquiry; let's


talk to Peter Saunders, Member of the Victims


and Survivors' Consultative Panel and founder of NAPAC,


The National Association for People Abused in Childhood.


we also have Micael Pether, Partner at BLM Law who specialises


in child sexual abuse claims and in Edinburgh we're joined


by Ian McFayden, Campaigner and survivor of abuse,


he's applying to be a core participant on the inquiry.


Welcome all of you. Let's start with you Peter, if I may. What do you


make of this latest development? Good morning, Victoria. The inquiry


is, as your introduction says, the biggest inquiry in British history.


I would argue it's probably in a sense the most toxic of issues to be


examined, you know. We are talking about the abuse on an industrial


scale of children over generations. Huge credit to Theresa May for


setting up the inquiry and for amber Rudd to continue to. Does it matter


if a QC has been suspended? I don't agree with Lord McDonald that it's


descending into fiasco. I think the toxicity of the content maybe is


something that's contributing to the difficulties that nobody's going to


deny. But I see a large group of people who're very committed and


working very, very hard to make this all work. I'm not here to speak on


behalf of the inquiry, I'm not even here to speak as a member of the


VSCP... What is that, sorry? The Victims and Consultative Panel,


boldly appointed to advise the work and have been doing a sterling job.


I'm here as the founder of NAPAC and a Suhr rival who wants the truth to


be told. This is our best bet yet -- survivor. It's the nature of the


inquiry, I'm afraid. I'm saddened that so many people continually have


a pop at it before it's even really had a chance to get off the ground.


OK. The nature of these things, it's just a hiccup, Michael Pether, do


you agree? It's been marred by negligent 'til press and


developments, but essentially there is an enormous group of very well


qualified people who're supporting the inquiry.


-- marred by negative press. There are some people working very


efficiently. They need to get some positive developments, progress and


clarity of direction and... They've got the terms of reference, haven't


they? The difficulty with that is that they are so wide. That is the


nature of these inquiries. Which is important. Yes. And without that, it


wouldn't be achieving what it's trying to do. Let me bring in Ian


McFayden, a campaigner and abuse survivor. Do you worry about this,


or is it a hiccup, as Peter says? This is beyond a hiccup, you know.


Within the last month and a half, we've lost our chair, we've now had


the lead counsel suspended. At what stage are people going to


understand, this is not about hiccups and issues that we can


resolve, this is about examining why this inquiry is failing us as a


survivors. We have to engage in this inquiry, it needs to be fit for our


purposes, you know. I've people who've been waiting a lifetime for


this inquiry. It's a one-off opportunity to get this right and


no, I'm not grateful to Theresa May or amber Rudd, neither of them want


to give us this inquiry, they have been pushed into giving us this


inquiry, yes. My question is, is where is the influence that's


destroying the leaders of this inquiry? Just so I'm clear, are you


saying that this QC, Ben Emmerson is essential to it or it can carry on


without him? The lead counsel who's been in place since 2014 who, when


we've had chairpersons step down, has held the inquiry together and


led it and driven it forward and is now suspended, is a real issue for


us, yes, I do. OK, so what should happen?


I think that basically the inquiry, if there are problems within it,


they need to deal with it within and not wash their dirty laundry in


public. For us to engage in this process and for this process to be a


success, you require survivors' trust to step forward and give


testimony and at the moment, it's lacking that sort of trust as far as


I'm concerned. All right. I would have to disagree.


It was never going to be an easy task. The best has been done. But


I... I didn't interrupt you, Ian. Sorry. At NAPAC, we hear every day


from survivors who're encouraged by this inquiry and it's a myth that


nothing's happening. I hope people watching will come forward to the


inquiry to give their testimony. There will be interim reports. The


panel and other members of the inquiry are already doing a great


deal of work. I'm not speaking for the inquiry, but I witness what is


going on and it will never be good enough for some people. But let's


get on with it. Very briefly, Ian, let's get on with


it, crack on with it. Briefly? Whilst we have a chair and a lead


counsel resigning, stepping away, being suspended, how can we allow


this to go on? What is happening with our inquiry? Why are the


leaders of our inquiry either stepping away or being suspended?


These are questions that need to be answered.


Thank you, I'm going to leave it there. Thank you very much for


coming on the programme. Thank you. Now, before we go some incredible


footage of the moment a police officer forced a car to stop


using his own vehicle when the driver fell


into a diabetic coma on the M1. PC Daniel Pattison has received


an award for his act of bravery, which saved the lives of the woman


driving, her young child and potentially


many other motorists. Joining me now is Chief Inspector


Phil Vickers from East Midlands operational support service who PC


Danny Pattison also works for. We can't get hold of Danny so we'll


have you! Thank you very much. Good morning. This was absolutely


astonishing but it also was a bit of a team effort as well, wasn't it?


Yes, absolutely. As well as Dan, there were four other members of the


team, another officer in the vehicle, the control room staff and


inspector managing the operation that morning that have received


commendations. Just talk us through it from the officer's point of view?


The initial report we received from a number of different members of the


public was that the car was weaving from one side of the road to the


other. That's not an uncommon report for us to receive, but when the


officers attended and tried to stop the vehicle, it failed to stop.


Although it wasn't making off at great speed, it was clear to the


officers that were in the car that, not only was the driver in there,


but there was an 18-month-old child as well. Talk us through how they


stopped it? Well, they tried to use the normal way, came up behind the


car and illuminated the blue lights and tried to stop it but


unfortunately because of the medical condition the lady was suffering


from at that point, she wasn't able to stop so, as you saw on the video,


ultimately, the officers needed to push the car into the crash barrier


and bring to it a safe conclusion. It wasn't just the safety of the


driver, obviously, it was other road-users as well. It was a


fantastic piece of work by everybody involved. What kind of training


would your officers get to be able to do that? Dan's an experienced


road policing officer, an advanced driver, trained in pursuit tactics


and he's trained to do this kind of thing. It probably emphasises the


kind of non-crime work we do on a daily basis when policing the roads,


more often when a car fails to stop it's related to criminality but in


this case obviously it was about the welfare of the driver.


It's so good to be reporting a story that has a successful outcome. I


mean, when the come came out of the coma, how did she respond to what


happened? The first thing that happened, as the officers gave her


first-aid by the side of the road, they shared their packed lunch with


her. Oh! They were able to identify that she was having a diabetic


episode and in fact in terms of being able to help her immediate


recovery, being able to share the food with her helped her immensely


by the side of the road. And that little girl will, I mean, when she


grows up, she'll remember nothing about it one would think. Clearly


she's going to watch the footage because it's gone around the world?


The officer said that she was very happy obviously to be speaking to


them, but she came out of it unharmed which is obviously the good


news. Well, really nice to talk to you and


give our regards to Danny and his colleagues, thank you very much Phil


Vickers. Thank you for your company today,


Joanna is here tomorrow.
