:00:13.:00:17.

But Donald Trump's latest comments on supporting torture,

:00:18.:00:20.

in his first interview as President, are likely to complicate the visit.

As far as I'm concerned, we have to fight fire with fire.

Good afternoon and welcome to the BBC News at One.

:01:35.:01:36.

Theresa May is expected to become the first world leader to meet

:01:37.:01:40.

America's new President this evening when she addresses Republican

:01:41.:01:43.

Tomorrow, she will travel to the White House for formal talks.

:01:44.:01:49.

The Prime Minister is expected to tell her audience

:01:50.:01:52.

tonight that a "sovereign, global" Britain wants to enhance

:01:53.:01:55.

But some politicians here have reacted to the meeting

:01:56.:02:01.

with misgivings, after Mr Trump said he supported the use

:02:02.:02:04.

Here's our political correspondent, Carole Walker.

:02:05.:02:11.

Theresa May says her meeting with President Trump will be an

:02:12.:02:17.

opportunity to renew the special relationship, to discuss a future

:02:18.:02:22.

trade deal and the importance of strengthening defence and security

:02:23.:02:25.

cooperation. But how will she respond to the new President's

:02:26.:02:29.

latest remarks? Some of his advisers do not agree with him but Donald

:02:30.:02:34.

Trump says he would consider methods such as waterboarding to tackle

:02:35.:02:37.

international terrorism. When they are chopping off the heads of people

:02:38.:02:41.

because they happen to be a Christian in the Middle East, when

:02:42.:02:45.

Isis is doing things nobody has heard of since medieval times, but I

:02:46.:02:49.

feel strongly about waterboarding? As far as I am concerned, we have to

:02:50.:02:54.

fight fire with fire. I want to do everything in the bounds of what we

:02:55.:02:58.

can do legally but do I feel it works? Absolutely, I feel it works.

:02:59.:03:03.

The Foreign Secretary says the Government's stance is clear. The

:03:04.:03:06.

Prime Minister did answer that question in the House of Commons

:03:07.:03:09.

yesterday and she was very clear that our principled position and our

:03:10.:03:14.

objection to torture remains unchanged. The Prime Minister has

:03:15.:03:18.

said she will not be afraid to stand up to the American President on

:03:19.:03:23.

issues where they disagree. Yesterday, a senior Tory and the

:03:24.:03:28.

raised his concerns. President Trump has repeatedly said that he will

:03:29.:03:30.

bring back torture as an instrument of policy. When she sees him on

:03:31.:03:37.

Friday, will the Prime Minister make clear that in no circumstances will

:03:38.:03:41.

she permit Britain to be dragged into facilitating that torture, as

:03:42.:03:47.

we were after September 11? I can assure my honourable friend that we

:03:48.:03:51.

have a very clear position on torture, we do not sanction torture,

:03:52.:03:55.

we do not get involved with that and that will continue to be our

:03:56.:03:59.

President. As the Prime Minister continues to negotiate Britain's the

:04:00.:04:04.

from the EU, she has spoken about the importance of loping -- of new

:04:05.:04:08.

global ties, the EU is our biggest trading market, with more than ?500

:04:09.:04:13.

billion annually but Theresa May knows the progress of a future US

:04:14.:04:17.

trade deal would send an important signal. It is very important for

:04:18.:04:21.

Britain and the United States we have better trade agreements, they

:04:22.:04:24.

could be even better with the right kind of deal and it is good that we

:04:25.:04:27.

work together on the main issues around the world. And the British

:04:28.:04:31.

Government has been very clear in its stance. The Prime Minister will

:04:32.:04:34.

speak in glowing terms about the importance of the special

:04:35.:04:38.

relationship when she addresses senior Republicans later. She will

:04:39.:04:42.

say the US and UK working together to defeat evil have fulfilled the

:04:43.:04:46.

promise of freedom, liberty and the rights of man, but is under pressure

:04:47.:04:50.

to confront the American President over remarks which many believe fly

:04:51.:04:55.

in the face of those ideals. Theresa May knows that establishing a strong

:04:56.:05:00.

personal rapport will be hugely important. Downing Street said there

:05:01.:05:05.

may be frank exchanges, but it is clear that renewing the special

:05:06.:05:07.

relationship will be the priority. Theresa May will address congressmen

:05:08.:05:20.

later today and President Trump is expected to attend, a big moment for

:05:21.:05:21.

expected to attend, a big moment for the Prime Minister.

:05:22.:05:24.

What sort of reception is the Prime Minister likely to get?

:05:25.:05:27.

I think she will get a warm reception, the chemistry when she

:05:28.:05:32.

meets Donald Trump tomorrow will be fascinating, you could not really

:05:33.:05:36.

imagine two different characters in terms of their personal style. The

:05:37.:05:41.

torture issue is difficult because she will be under a lot of pressure

:05:42.:05:45.

to raise that. But what she needs to do when she comes here is the

:05:46.:05:49.

persuade Congress to Republicans when she speaks to them behind me

:05:50.:05:55.

and the President himself that Britain can negotiate a good

:05:56.:05:59.

bilateral trade deal once it is out of the European Union. The

:06:00.:06:02.

difficulty for her is that Donald Trump is in favour of bilateral

:06:03.:06:08.

trade deals, he really likes them, he hates multilateral deals, but he

:06:09.:06:12.

likes bilateral deals because he believes America can always get the

:06:13.:06:15.

upper hand, the better deal. They can effectively get the best out of

:06:16.:06:20.

those bilateral deals because it is the more powerful country. She will

:06:21.:06:23.

have to come away from Washington tomorrow with something to show,

:06:24.:06:28.

some positive words to give some sense of enthusiasm and some bite to

:06:29.:06:33.

her and her government's view that Britain can exist properly in trade

:06:34.:06:35.

terms outside the EU. Thank you. Our assistant political editor,

:06:36.:06:37.

Norman Smith, is in Westminster. Her meeting with President Trump

:06:38.:06:40.

is certainly going to Well, this was always a meeting

:06:41.:06:48.

which some people in Westminster were queasy about given the views of

:06:49.:06:55.

Mr Trump on various issues, but his comments about torture have made it

:06:56.:06:59.

a lot more problematic. Because this morning, there has been quite a

:07:00.:07:04.

backlash following his remarks, not just from Labour politicians, senior

:07:05.:07:07.

Conservatives also unhappy about his remarks on using waterboarding,

:07:08.:07:14.

saying that is morally indefensible, legally unacceptable. But there are

:07:15.:07:18.

also security implications because the secured -- the concern is

:07:19.:07:22.

British spies cannot take advantage of American intelligence because we

:07:23.:07:26.

do not know if it is screened from using torture. So for Theresa May,

:07:27.:07:33.

her people will wonder how to manage this, we want the best possible

:07:34.:07:37.

relations and yet we know Mrs May has said she is quite prepared to be

:07:38.:07:43.

frank with Mr Dashwood Mr Trump. We will find out in the next couple of

:07:44.:07:48.

hours exactly how Frank Mrs May is prepared to be.

:07:49.:07:51.

And an important milestone reached in Parliament

:07:52.:07:53.

Yes, we have here the Brexit bill to begin the process of taking us out

:07:54.:08:02.

of the EU. A pared down, stripped down, fast-track bill to be pushed

:08:03.:08:07.

through the Commons, starting next Tuesday, done and dusted by the

:08:08.:08:11.

following Wednesday. A number of Labour MPs have said this is not

:08:12.:08:15.

acceptable, it is an attempt to muzzle MPs and gag parliaments, not

:08:16.:08:19.

enough time. One of the key developments this lunchtime is

:08:20.:08:24.

Jeremy Corbyn is to order his MPs to back this bill. A lot of anger among

:08:25.:08:29.

some Labour MPs over this, with suggestions it could prompt more

:08:30.:08:35.

resignations from Jeremy Corbyn's team, including from the Shadow

:08:36.:08:38.

Cabinet, so there is the potential that this bill could lead to another

:08:39.:08:43.

Jeremy Corbyn leadership crisis. From Westminster, thank you.

:08:44.:08:47.

Those comments were in the new President's first major interview

:08:48.:08:49.

Speaking to the American broadcaster ABC, he said protecting the US

:08:50.:08:56.

Our world affairs correspondent, Paul Adams, reports.

:08:57.:09:02.

Donald Trump is getting used to his new home, following his

:09:03.:09:10.

hallowed and not so hallowed footsteps.

:09:11.:09:17.

Five days after his inauguration, does the 45th

:09:18.:09:19.

I want to make this a great success for the

:09:20.:09:27.

American people and for the people that put me in this position, so I

:09:28.:09:30.

So I can be the most presidential person

:09:31.:09:34.

ever, other than possibly the great Abe Lincoln, all right?

:09:35.:09:36.

But I can be the most presidential person, but I

:09:37.:09:38.

may not be able to do the job nearly as well if I do that.

:09:39.:09:43.

National security has loomed large in this first week.

:09:44.:09:45.

President Trump promising once again to suspend

:09:46.:09:46.

the flow of refugees from several Arab countries.

:09:47.:09:50.

You're looking at people that come in, in many cases,

:09:51.:09:53.

They're coming in under false pretences, I don't want that.

:09:54.:10:07.

I'm going to be the President of a safe

:10:08.:10:09.

You think this is going to cause a little more

:10:10.:10:16.

Donald Trump says American interests will always come first.

:10:17.:10:20.

Listen to what he says he would have done in Iraq.

:10:21.:10:22.

Well, we should have kept the oil when we got out.

:10:23.:10:25.

And you know, it's very interesting, had

:10:26.:10:27.

we taken the oil, you wouldn't have Isis.

:10:28.:10:29.

Because they fuelled themselves with the oil, that's

:10:30.:10:30.

So you believe we can go in and take the

:10:31.:10:34.

These are some of the pictures that were taken.

:10:35.:10:39.

Last weekend, the White House was furious at the suggestion that

:10:40.:10:44.

Donald Trump's inauguration had not attracted record crowds.

:10:45.:10:46.

When you look at this tremendous sea of love, I call

:10:47.:10:52.

it a sea of love, it's really something special.

:10:53.:10:54.

That all these people travelled here from all parts

:10:55.:10:56.

of the country, maybe the world, but all parts

:10:57.:11:05.

Many of these people were the forgotten men and

:11:06.:11:09.

But more importantly, they're going to love

:11:10.:11:13.

Mr Trump says it was only massive voter fraud that

:11:14.:11:17.

prevented him from winning the popular vote in November.

:11:18.:11:19.

Most experts say there is simply no evidence.

:11:20.:11:23.

You've got people who are registered who are dead, who are

:11:24.:11:37.

illegals, who are in two states, and I will say this.

:11:38.:11:40.

Of those votes cast, none of them come

:11:41.:11:43.

Donald Trump has been the most powerful man

:11:44.:11:47.

A week of decisions and recriminations, able to

:11:48.:11:58.

start for his legions of fans, an unnerving guns

:11:59.:12:00.

The Chancellor, Philip Hammond, says the UK's economy

:12:01.:12:04.

is robust and resilient, but he's warned there may

:12:05.:12:07.

be uncertainty ahead, as Britain adjusts to

:12:08.:12:08.

His comments come as official figures show that the economy defied

:12:09.:12:12.

the expectations of some economists and grew by 0.6% in the final

:12:13.:12:15.

three months of last year and by 2.0% over 2016.

:12:16.:12:17.

Our economics editor, Kamal Ahmed, is at the Microsoft

:12:18.:12:20.

headquarters in Reading, where the Chancellor has been

:12:21.:12:22.

Yes, famously and rather sarcastically, it was Napoleon that

:12:23.:12:32.

called Britain a nation of shopkeepers. And frankly, Philip

:12:33.:12:37.

Hammond is probably pretty glad that we are a nation of consumers. It has

:12:38.:12:42.

been the services sector of the UK economy, 80% of the UK economy, that

:12:43.:12:45.

has really lifted those growth figures. Retail, restaurants and

:12:46.:12:52.

travel agents have all been contributing to those growth

:12:53.:12:55.

figures. As you say, there were lots of gloomy forecasts about what would

:12:56.:13:01.

happen to the economy if we voted to leave the European Union, which of

:13:02.:13:04.

course we did. I kicked off by asking the Chancellor here in

:13:05.:13:11.

Reading whether this was a pain cancelled or delayed.

:13:12.:13:16.

Of course, we recognise that as we go into this period of negotiation

:13:17.:13:20.

with the European Union and as we absorb the impacts of the

:13:21.:13:23.

depreciation of Stirling last year, there will be more uncertainty ahead

:13:24.:13:27.

during the course of this year. But the fact the economy is so robust

:13:28.:13:32.

and resilient going in should give us great cause for optimism about

:13:33.:13:37.

Britain's future. Of course, Brexit and our

:13:38.:13:40.

negotiations for leaving the European Union are at least one of

:13:41.:13:46.

the big unknowns the UK economy, the Chancellor told me there were some

:13:47.:13:49.

concerns about business investment being delayed because of worries

:13:50.:13:56.

about that uncertainty. But I asked him whether that period of

:13:57.:14:00.

uncertainty was now seeming a little shorter than it had initially.

:14:01.:14:06.

I sense that the period in which our European partners were wanting to

:14:07.:14:13.

chastise us has passed, has moved on, and actually what people are

:14:14.:14:17.

looking to do now is look for a practical solution that works for

:14:18.:14:21.

us, that works for the European Union and that will make all our

:14:22.:14:23.

people more prosperous in the future.

:14:24.:14:29.

I think now of course Philip Hammond will be looking towards his next big

:14:30.:14:34.

event and that is the budget in March. But growth figures for 2016

:14:35.:14:38.

mean that the Government will have a bit more money to play with because

:14:39.:14:45.

the Government and its receipts will have increased from taxes, does not

:14:46.:14:49.

mean we are out of the woods, the Bank of England saying growth for

:14:50.:14:54.

next year will be lower than forecast for this year, but for the

:14:55.:14:58.

moment, the UK economy is certainly continuing with that strong, robust

:14:59.:15:03.

growth that we have seen today. Thank you.

:15:04.:15:05.

The number of prisoners who committed suicide in jails

:15:06.:15:07.

in England and Wales last year has reached record levels.

:15:08.:15:10.

The Ministry of Justice says there were 119 suicides -

:15:11.:15:12.

the highest number since records began in 1978.

:15:13.:15:14.

Our home affairs correspondent, Tom Symonds, reports.

:15:15.:15:20.

Last year, the BBC was given rare access to one Britain's

:15:21.:15:23.

It didn't take long for our team to come across the mental health

:15:24.:15:27.

problems driving today's rise in prisoners killing

:15:28.:15:29.

Another inmate had smashed up his cell, painted its walls.

:15:30.:15:44.

He said his conditions had been diagnosed,

:15:45.:15:50.

He said his conditions had been diagnosed, but not well treated.

:15:51.:15:52.

I am asking for help, but the service seems to be so slow.

:15:53.:15:56.

From this picture of life behind bars to the figures

:15:57.:15:58.

354 deaths were recorded in 2015-16, up more

:15:59.:16:01.

119 were self-inflicted, another record.

:16:02.:16:06.

And there were more than 25,000 assaults, yet again a record.

:16:07.:16:13.

The Government's focus has been on restoring

:16:14.:16:16.

numbers of prison officers, which had previously been cut.

:16:17.:16:21.

We are investing an extra ?100 million, 2,500 extra prison

:16:22.:16:27.

officers across the estate, so that we are able

:16:28.:16:29.

to have a caseload of one prison officer for every six prisoners

:16:30.:16:34.

enabling us to give support and challenge to help them

:16:35.:16:39.

turn their lives around, but also making sure

:16:40.:16:41.

that they are kept safe while they are in prison.

:16:42.:16:44.

It's a very serious situation and I've acknowledged that.

:16:45.:16:51.

If she's going to be serious about saving lives and making

:16:52.:16:54.

prisons safer, and making prisons work better to serve

:16:55.:16:56.

putting in more staff is only one thing.

:16:57.:17:01.

She has in the end to reduce the number of people in them.

:17:02.:17:05.

Prisons are overflowing, they're rat infested,

:17:06.:17:09.

cockroach infested, and they're festering with crime.

:17:10.:17:11.

Getting tough with prisoners is easy politics for the Government.

:17:12.:17:13.

Increasing officer numbers is achievable, yet brings

:17:14.:17:15.

But cutting the number of people in prison, well,

:17:16.:17:20.

The Prime Minister heads to the United States to become

:17:21.:17:44.

the first world leader to meet the new president.

Coming up in sport at 1:30pm: Will England captain Eoin Morgan be

:17:51.:17:55.

made to rue putting India into bat in Kanpur?

We'll have the latest from the first Twenty20 international,

:17:59.:18:00.

as England look to take the early advantage.

:18:01.:18:10.

He spent 186 days in space on board the International Space Station -

:18:11.:18:14.

and the British astronaut Tim Peake says he's going back for more.

:18:15.:18:18.

The 44-year-old says he's excited about returning,

:18:19.:18:21.

and looking forward to seeing the spectacular view

:18:22.:18:23.

He's been talking about his plans at London's Science Museum,

:18:24.:18:28.

where the Soyuz spacecraft that launched him into orbit

:18:29.:18:31.

and returned him to Earth went on public display today.

:18:32.:18:34.

Our science correspondent Pallab Ghosh is there.

:18:35.:18:41.

So here it is, the space capsule that took Tim Peake into space. And

:18:42.:18:51.

as you said, it's now on permanent display here at the Science Museum.

:18:52.:18:56.

Early today, Tim and his capsule were reunited for the first time

:18:57.:18:58.

since he returned to Earth. It's been to the Space Station

:18:59.:19:02.

and back, and now the final leg The capsule that sent

:19:03.:19:05.

Tim Peake into orbit The Soyuz has landed -

:19:06.:19:10.

at the Science Museum in London. It's like unwrapping a Christmas

:19:11.:19:19.

present for the staff here, revealing a singed, scorched piece

:19:20.:19:21.

of Britain's scientific history. He was inside when he first

:19:22.:19:27.

experienced the wonders of space. And he was looking through this

:19:28.:19:37.

very window when he saw what it was like to re-enter

:19:38.:19:39.

the Earth's atmosphere. And now he's been told he'll be

:19:40.:19:43.

given another mission to the Space Station,

:19:44.:19:46.

in a few years' time. It's great news for myself

:19:47.:19:51.

and my colleagues that we're going to get the opportunity

:19:52.:19:55.

for a second mission back It's wonderful news for the future

:19:56.:19:57.

of European space travel. The Science Museum want the display

:19:58.:20:01.

to be an inspiration Well, just knowing

:20:02.:20:04.

it's been in space. You can actually really

:20:05.:20:15.

smell the capsule. It's smaller than

:20:16.:20:17.

I expected as well. Tim came back to Earth

:20:18.:20:23.

in his capsule last year. It is now a celebration of Britain's

:20:24.:20:27.

exciting ride of all time in space. You feel the G build-up and you can

:20:31.:20:38.

see the outside surface bubbling away as you come

:20:39.:20:41.

through the atmosphere. The parachutes open up

:20:42.:20:45.

and you bump down on the ground. Many of the children

:20:46.:20:49.

here want to follow in Tim and Helen's footsteps,

:20:50.:20:51.

but not all of them. Everyone here is really excited,

:20:52.:21:12.

especially at the news that Tim is going to get another mission to the

:21:13.:21:15.

space station. We don't know exactly when, but it will be some time,

:21:16.:21:24.

probably, between 1919 -- between 2019, and 2024, so not long to wait

:21:25.:21:28.

before we can relive all that excitement of last year, all over

again. The number of cars being built in

the UK has reached a 17-year high - because of continued economic

car-maker. We had a fantastic December. Sales in January remains

:22:17.:22:20.

strong as well. In fact even in markets like China, we have the best

:22:21.:22:24.

sales month in our history in December. In 2016 UK plants produced

:22:25.:22:32.

more than 1.7 million cars, a 17 year high. And we exported record

:22:33.:22:36.

numbers. 1.35 million, more than half of that went to the EU. But

:22:37.:22:43.

investment fell to ?1.6 billion, down around one third on the

:22:44.:22:48.

previous year. That's falling investment would appear to be the

:22:49.:22:52.

clearest sign yet that -- the clearest sign yet that Brexit is

:22:53.:22:54.

having an impact and that the uncertainties surrounding our future

:22:55.:23:01.

trading arrangements has caused some investment to be put on hold.

:23:02.:23:05.

Anecdotally we are getting comments from an array of our members that

:23:06.:23:09.

effectively left -- they are sitting on their hands, waiting to see what

:23:10.:23:14.

the future will hold and waiting for the greater certainty about future

relationships with Europe. Despite the vote to leave the EU last year

:23:18.:23:21.

Nissan said it would build two new models here, after receiving support

:23:22.:23:26.

and assurances from the government. Aston Martin and McLaren also

:23:27.:23:30.

announced major investment funds. But Brexit means the UK now has to

:23:31.:23:35.

negotiate a new trade deal with the EU and some fear the prolonged

:23:36.:23:39.

negotiations could prove highly damaging. So we want to see

:23:40.:23:48.

preferably as much access to the single market. If that is not

:23:49.:23:50.

maintained, then there is the question about investment in the UK

:23:51.:23:52.

in the car industry and how many plants will remain here in the long

term. The industry wants tariff free trade with the EU to keep our car

exports growing. Production is set to hit an all-time high by the end

of the decade. The big unknown is what will happen after that. John

:24:05.:24:06.

Moylan, BBC News. The mystery of a body found a year

:24:07.:24:10.

ago on Saddleworth Moor in Greater Manchester has

:24:11.:24:13.

finally been solved. Police made numerous public appeals

:24:14.:24:14.

for information after he was found lying on the hillside with no

:24:15.:24:17.

identification or phone. Now a DNA match has

:24:18.:24:19.

uncovered his identity. Judith Moritz is at Dovestone

:24:20.:24:21.

reservoir, on the moors. Yes, it was at this beauty spot on

:24:22.:24:40.

the edge of Saddleworth Moor, at around 12 o'clock, the middle of the

:24:41.:24:46.

day, on the 15th of December in 2015, passing cyclist discovered the

:24:47.:24:49.

body of a man. Now at first it was thought that he had had a heart

:24:50.:24:52.

attack, had been out walking and suffered a heart attack or something

:24:53.:24:55.

similar, but then the police, who were called by the Mountain rescue

:24:56.:24:59.

here, came and said that their belief was that he had deliberately

:25:00.:25:06.

chosen come here to die. The problem for the police was they had no idea

:25:07.:25:11.

who he -- who the man was. On his body when they found him there were

:25:12.:25:15.

no documents, no wallet, no mobile phone, nothing like that. The pieces

:25:16.:25:20.

of the jigsaw have taken more than a year to establish who he was. What

:25:21.:25:23.

they did find on the man's body were tickets. That took them to Ealing

:25:24.:25:29.

Broadway station in London. He was captured there on CCTV. They were

:25:30.:25:33.

able, through looking at that footage, to create an e-fit drawing

:25:34.:25:38.

of the man and to follow lots of different lines of enquiry. Both in

:25:39.:25:43.

the UK and also over in Pakistan, because the other thing found with

:25:44.:25:49.

the man's body was a small pot of strychnine poisoning, which was

:25:50.:25:52.

traced to Pakistan, along with a medical implants in the man's lead.

:25:53.:25:57.

It's taken more than a year and they've been combing flight records,

:25:58.:26:01.

but the police today have said through the coroner's court that the

:26:02.:26:05.

man was David Lytton, 67 years old, from London. They discovered he flew

:26:06.:26:11.

to the UK two days before he died from Lahore in Pakistan and they've

:26:12.:26:15.

been able to make a DNA match with one of his relatives. There will be

:26:16.:26:20.

a full inquest heard in due course, when more information will emerge.

:26:21.:26:22.

We are told that Mr Lipton's family have been told about all of this and

:26:23.:26:27.

are being comforted -- David Lytton's family have been told and

:26:28.:26:28.

are being comforted. Poverty is blighting the lives

:26:29.:26:32.

of nearly one in five children in the UK -

:26:33.:26:34.

and those from the most deprived backgrounds are experiencing much

:26:35.:26:36.

worse health compared That's according to the Royal

:26:37.:26:38.

College of Paediatrics and Child Health, which says the UK

:26:39.:26:41.

as infant mortality rates, Our health correspondent

Dominic Hughes reports. Hi, I'm Sophie, and I'm

an emotional wreck. Anxiety, depression

and the need to be listened to. These are the themes of a short play

on mental health performed by students in Liverpool,

and echoed in today's report on the health of young

people and children. It paints a picture of the UK

:27:07.:27:16.

struggling to match other countries and even fallen behind. Evidence has

:27:17.:27:21.

been developing that all is not well with our children's health. It's the

:27:22.:27:25.

first time we've pulled together a proper picture across all four

:27:26.:27:29.

countries and the news is not good. Some of the issues that raise

:27:30.:27:32.

concerns over the state of child health include just 34% of babies

:27:33.:27:37.

breast-fed to six months, less than half the rate in Norway.

:27:38.:27:43.

40% of children in England's most deprived areas

:27:44.:27:45.

And half of adult mental health problems start before the age of 14.

:27:46.:27:49.

For the drama group in Liverpool, mental health issues are a priority.

:27:50.:27:59.

Mental health is not seen physically but it doesn't mean it's not there.

:28:00.:28:03.

Our production will mainly be to get rid of that stigma about mental

:28:04.:28:09.

health and just educate our audience a bit more about mental health.

It challenges all four governments of the UK to consider

:28:18.:28:19.

the impact their policies will have on children.

:28:20.:28:21.

They've responded by restating commitments

:28:22.:28:22.

The last surviving member of the famous Dambusters raid -

:28:23.:28:28.

George Johnson - was in his early 20s when he and the rest

:28:29.:28:31.

of Bomber Command Squadron 617 embarked on the perilous mission

:28:32.:28:34.

Last year he was passed over for a knighthood,

:28:35.:28:38.

after being nominated for his charity work

:28:39.:28:39.

Today, his friend Carol Vorderman is going to Parliament -

:28:40.:28:43.

along with Gulf War veteran John Nichol - in a campaign to get

:28:44.:28:46.

The mile long march from Bomber Command memorial to Downing Street,

:28:47.:29:01.

with the hope of finally honouring a hero. George Johnson, known as

Johnny, seen here on the far left. One of the 133 men who flew over

:29:11.:29:15.

Germany to bomb downs. More than a third of them never going home.

:29:16.:29:20.

People to say to me, were you frightened? I said well, I think

:29:21.:29:26.

anybody who saw that for the first time must have been at least a bit

:29:27.:29:33.

apprehensive. If not, they were either devoid of emotion or

:29:34.:29:38.

strangers to the truth. But Johnny has never been recognised for the

:29:39.:29:43.

party played on the 16th of May, 1943. Despite being nominated, he

:29:44.:29:47.

didn't appear on the new Year's honours list. I hadn't realised he

:29:48.:29:53.

had been nominated, but then realised he'd been snubbed in the

:29:54.:29:56.

New years Honours list, it was an insult not only to him but also to

:29:57.:30:01.

those he fought with and those who adore him, and I'm one of them. And

:30:02.:30:06.

she's not alone. Hundreds of thousands, up and down the country,

:30:07.:30:11.

agree. And so today, Carol Vorderman, along with RAF veteran

:30:12.:30:15.

John Nichol, took their message to the Prime Minister. I'm not saying

:30:16.:30:22.

Johnny is more worthy than a fashion designer or a celebrity or a sports

:30:23.:30:26.

man or a TV personality, but it's those people are worthy of awards,

:30:27.:30:33.

then Johnny is worth one, 100 fold. In just three weeks, over 200,000

:30:34.:30:37.

people have signed the petition. But whether Johnny Johnson, our last

:30:38.:30:43.

surviving dambuster, appears on the Queen's list next time remains to be

seen. Vienna Landing, BBC News. The weather now with Sarah Keith-Lucas.

:30:53.:31:00.

We have some contrast across the UK, you can see the beautiful blue skies

:31:01.:31:05.

in Scotland. The satellite image shows there's a lot of cloud around

:31:06.:31:09.

the rest of the UK. This picture comes from Dorset, where a fairly

:31:10.:31:13.

different scene is there. There's a lot of grey cloud, some drizzly

:31:14.:31:17.

outbreaks of rain. We've even had some snow grains around across parts

:31:18.:31:21.

of the country. Where you have the cloud it's feeling pretty chilly.

:31:22.:31:25.

Add on the wind-chill as well. There should be some sunshine be appearing

:31:26.:31:28.

along the south coast, as we had through the afternoon. This is 3pm,

:31:29.:31:33.

also some brightness across more western parts of Wales. For the East

:31:34.:31:37.

of Wales, through the Midlands, North East England, it's feeling

:31:38.:31:49.

cold out there. Scotland should see most of the sunshine. Temperatures

:31:50.:31:53.

just above freezing for many others, but feeling below zero when you want

:31:54.:31:56.

on the effect of the wind-chill. This evening and overnight, dry for

:31:57.:32:00.

most parts. A sharp frost. A cold night ahead from any of us. We'll

:32:01.:32:05.

see more cloud filtering in from the south, bringing some bright spots of

:32:06.:32:09.

rain or even some snow. There's the risk tomorrow morning we could have

:32:10.:32:12.

some icy stretches, particularly towards the south-east. A cold start

:32:13.:32:16.

a Friday morning. Through the day we have a front trying to move in from

:32:17.:32:21.

the West, but it's bumping into high-pressure, in charge across

:32:22.:32:25.

continental parts of Europe. Through the day of high pressure keeps

:32:26.:32:27.

things mostly dry. It will turn milder and cloudier from the south

:32:28.:32:32.

and the West, with a few spots of rain. Temperatures seven or 8

:32:33.:32:36.

degrees, typically around two towards the north-east. On Saturday

:32:37.:32:40.

the area of rain pushes away towards the east. We are back into sunshine

:32:41.:32:44.

and showers, blustery feel, but we should just about push into double

:32:45.:32:48.

figures. A change in the story as things turned that bit milder. Onto

:32:49.:32:52.

the second half of the weekend, we see a front towards the south

:32:53.:32:55.

bringing some wet and windy weather. Some uncertainty about how far north

:32:56.:32:58.

that front gets during the course of Sunday. It looks like we should have

:32:59.:33:04.

the clearest conditions across northern areas, 5-6 here, further

:33:05.:33:08.

south milder as we had through the course of the weekend. There's a

:33:09.:33:11.

change on the cards, certainly over the next couple of days we'll start

:33:12.:33:15.

to lose the chilly feel. While the period of weather. Tonight, watch
