At least 13 people are dead

and the death toll is expected

0:00:060:00:09

to rise after mudslides slam

into homes in California.

0:00:090:00:14

The torrent of mud swept

through communities

0:00:140:00:16

near Santa Barbara -

one man heard a baby buried

0:00:160:00:18

in the mud and managed to pull

it out alive.

0:00:180:00:23

We dug down, we found a little baby.

0:00:230:00:25

We got it out, got

the mud out of its mouth.

0:00:250:00:30

Houses have been crushed by boulders

the size of small cars -

0:00:300:00:33

which rolled down the hillside

after heavy rain -

0:00:330:00:35

the first for months.

0:00:350:00:37

We'll have the latest

from California where rescuers

0:00:370:00:39

are hoping to find more survivors.

0:00:390:00:40

Also this lunchtime.

0:00:400:00:50

Cancer patients face possible delays

to their treatment at an Oxford

0:00:500:00:52

hospital because of a shortage

of staff, claims a leading doctor.

0:00:520:00:55

British manufacturing

is riding high.

0:00:550:00:56

Figures show output has reached

its highest level in ten years.

0:00:560:00:59

Thousands of people are trapped

in the Swiss resort of Zermatt

0:00:590:01:02

after heavy snowfall -

one British skier waiting

0:01:020:01:04

to be airlifted out

says its been worrying.

0:01:040:01:06

We just tried to stay

as safe as possible,

0:01:060:01:08

and eliminate any risk rather

than taking any risks

0:01:080:01:10

and going out walking.

0:01:100:01:15

And Billy the Whizz.

0:01:150:01:16

The teenage racing driver is back

behind the wheel nine months

0:01:160:01:19

0:01:280:01:30

Three days after Arsenal

were dumped out of the FA Cup -

0:01:300:01:33

they face Chelsea in

the League Cup later.

0:01:330:01:43

Good afternoon and welcome

to the BBC News at One.

0:01:550:01:57

At least 13 people have been killed

in southern California

0:01:570:02:00

after mudslides and flash floods.

0:02:000:02:02

The death toll is expected to rise.

0:02:020:02:06

Witnesses say boulders the size

of small cars rolled down

0:02:060:02:09

the hillside after the first rain

for several months in

0:02:090:02:11

the Santa Barbara county.

0:02:110:02:13

More than 30 miles of the main

coastal road have been closed

0:02:130:02:16

and rescuers are trying to reach

a group of 300 people thought to be

0:02:160:02:20

trapped in one neighbourhood,

east of Santa Barbara,

0:02:200:02:22

James Cook reports from Los Angeles.

0:02:220:02:30

The rains came suddenly,

just before dawn.

0:02:300:02:31

Torrential and terrifying.

0:02:310:02:34

They coursed over the slick scorched

earth, gathering speed until mud

0:02:340:02:37

was roaring down to the sea

like an express train.

0:02:370:02:39

The deluge smashed into the very

homes which had just survived

0:02:390:02:42

California's biggest

recorded wild fire.

0:02:420:02:48

The result, utter devastation.

0:02:480:02:49

We had a very difficult

time assessing the area,

0:02:490:02:55

and responding to many of those

areas, to assist those people.

0:02:550:02:59

The only words I can really

think of to describe

0:02:590:03:02

what it looked like,

it looked like a World

0:03:020:03:03

War I battlefield.

0:03:030:03:05

A good friend of mine,

whose name I won't mention,

0:03:050:03:07

lost a father-in-law.

0:03:070:03:08

I still have two friends

missing right now.

0:03:080:03:13

So it's devastating.

0:03:130:03:17

The fire created a situation where

the dirt was able to wash down.

0:03:170:03:20

Had we still had all

of the vegetation on the hill,

0:03:200:03:23

it would not have been as much

of an issue.

0:03:230:03:25

Despite dangerous conditions,

helicopters took to the sky,

0:03:250:03:29

winching to safety dozens of people

who were stranded amidst the rubble.

0:03:290:03:36

The stories of survival

are almost unbelievable.

0:03:360:03:40

I heard the rumble of the rocks,

and I looked over at the rear

0:03:400:03:45

and trees were coming down.

0:03:450:03:47

We ran into the house,

and right then, the boulders

0:03:470:03:51

busted through our house,

and we got upstairs,

0:03:510:03:53

and it got up to about eight feet,

nine feet up the stairs.

0:03:530:03:58

We were able to crawl

from the window to the roof.

0:03:580:04:04

The house is wiped out,

just took everything out.

0:04:040:04:07

Later we were worried

about a neighbour's house,

0:04:070:04:11

we went over to see if they were OK,

and we heard a little baby crying.

0:04:110:04:17

And a fireman came, dug down,

we found a little baby.

0:04:170:04:27

We got it out, got

the mud out of its mouth.

0:04:270:04:30

I'm hoping it's OK.

0:04:300:04:31

They took it to the hospital.

0:04:310:04:33

But it was just a baby,

four feet down in the mud,

0:04:330:04:35

and nowhere, under the rocks.

0:04:350:04:37

I'm glad we got him.

0:04:370:04:39

Who knows what else is down there.

0:04:390:04:42

The communities hardest hit

were Montecito and Carpinteria

0:04:420:04:44

on the Pacific coast,

north of Los Angeles.

0:04:440:04:49

These are some of the most exclusive

neighbourhoods in the United States.

0:04:490:04:52

Home to stars like Oprah Winfrey.

0:04:520:04:58

This is how deep the mud is.

0:04:580:04:59

And...

0:04:590:05:07

House in the back is gone.

0:05:070:05:15

Ellen Degeneres posted

this photo online.

0:05:150:05:22

The damage isn't

confined to the coast.

0:05:220:05:26

This is the Los Angeles

suburb of Burbank.

0:05:260:05:28

The mud roared down here

with terrifying speed,

0:05:280:05:30

sweeping everything in its path.

0:05:300:05:33

The firefighters won't let us go

up there any further.

0:05:330:05:39

They say the situation could change

in the blink of an eye,

0:05:390:05:42

and as you can see, this is how

dangerous it is.

0:05:420:05:45

Rescue workers are still scouring

scores of damaged and demolished

0:05:450:05:47

homes, searching for survivors.

0:05:470:05:48

Police say the number of dead

here is certain to rise.

0:05:480:05:51

James Cook, BBC News,

southern California.

0:05:510:06:01

A senior doctor has warned that

cancer care at an NHS specialist

0:06:020:06:05

hospital is becoming "unsustainable"

because of staff shortages.

0:06:050:06:07

A memo to staff at Oxford's

Churchill Hospital, which was leaked

0:06:070:06:10

to The Times newspaper,

said patients are facing

0:06:100:06:11

delays to the start times

of their chemotherapy treatment,

0:06:110:06:14

as nurse numbers are

down by about 40 %.

0:06:140:06:16

as nurse numbers are

down by about 40%.

0:06:160:06:24

Our health editor

Hugh Pym is in Oxford.

0:06:240:06:28

What is happening there, explain the

back ground to this?

Well, the

0:06:280:06:33

background Sophie is this leaked

e-mail is from a very senior doctor

0:06:330:06:38

here at the Churchill hospital, a

leading cancer care centre in this

0:06:380:06:43

part of England. It follows a

meeting with clinical leads, that is

0:06:430:06:47

other leading clinicians in the

hospital. Where it is said that

0:06:470:06:50

because of staffing shortages for

cancer nurses, they are beginning to

0:06:500:06:57

delay the start of chemotherapy for

some cancer patients, to four week,

0:06:570:07:02

the national target is four weeks

for the start of the treatment, so

0:07:020:07:05

they will remain within their

target, but clearly implied in this

0:07:050:07:09

is there will be some patients who

might have started chemo therapy

0:07:090:07:14

within a couple of week, that is

moved out to four. Four. For your

0:07:140:07:20

gent cases keep their pip will

continue as usual but there will be

0:07:200:07:25

possible changes for others maybe in

a terminal stage of cancer, the

0:07:250:07:29

amount of chemotherapy they get. The

trust here, which covers the

0:07:290:07:33

Churchill hospital is adamant there

are no formal plans to change

0:07:330:07:36

anything, they say they are meeting

their targets but they do

0:07:360:07:41

acknowledge that is a staffing

shortage, finding nurse information

0:07:410:07:44

the south-east of England generally,

with the cost of living and so on.

0:07:440:07:48

That is really exposed a major issue

across the NHS.

Thank you.

0:07:480:07:53

Thank you.

0:07:530:07:55

The NHS dominated the first Prime

Minister's Questions of this year.

0:07:550:07:58

The Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn

said the health service

0:07:580:08:02

was "sinking" under Jeremy Hunt,

but Theresa May insisted it's

0:08:020:08:05

"better prepared than ever before".

0:08:050:08:06

Our assistant political editor,

Norman Smith, is in Westminster.

0:08:060:08:10

A New Year by the Prime Minister

still under huge pressure over the

0:08:100:08:14

state of the NHS.

Mrs May has

freakily said that she wants to be

0:08:140:08:18

able to talk about non-Brexit

issues, about a domestic agenda like

0:08:180:08:23

the Health Service, she got her

opportunity today, but perhaps not

0:08:230:08:26

in the way she wanted, with angry,

angry exchanges with the Labour

0:08:260:08:30

leader, as he sought to crank up the

pressure on Mrs May over the state

0:08:300:08:35

of the NHS this winter, saying under

Jeremy Hunt's leadership it was

0:08:350:08:41

Sinning and attacking her for

remotes Mr Hunt, giving him control

0:08:410:08:47

of social care where Jeremy Corbyn

said he should have been sacked,

0:08:470:08:51

pointing to the cancelled non-urgent

operation, the hours people were

0:08:510:08:56

having to wait in ambulances and Mrs

May prompted a degree of inCree duty

0:08:560:09:01

when she said the NHS was pet better

prepared this winter than ever

0:09:010:09:06

before, pointing to the fact there

was more money, more acute beds,

0:09:060:09:11

more people were taking out flu

jabs, more were open over the

0:09:110:09:15

holiday eperiod. Have a listen to ho

heated some of the exchanges were.

0:09:150:09:21

She told the house the NHS was

better prepared for winter, than

0:09:210:09:26

ever before. So what words of

comfort does the Prime Minister have

0:09:260:09:33

to the 17,000 patients waiting in

the back of ambulances, in the last

0:09:330:09:38

week of December? Is it that nothing

is perfect by any chance?

I fully

0:09:380:09:45

accept that the NHS is under

pressure over winter, it is

0:09:450:09:50

regularly under pressure at winter

time, I have been very clear, I

0:09:500:09:55

apologise to those people who have

had operations delayed.

I think what

0:09:550:09:59

we learn is that for all the time we

at Westminster spend talking about

0:09:590:10:05

Brexit, Mr Corbyn and probably Mrs

May know for many voters, the issue

0:10:050:10:10

that matters above all others is

still the NHS.

0:10:100:10:17

We are are going to go back to our

main story, the mudslides in

0:10:170:10:22

California. There are warnings that

the death toll could rise. Rescuers

0:10:220:10:31

are searching for survivors.

Extraordinary scenes there, and this

0:10:310:10:34

is the area that was hit not so long

ago by the fire?

Yes, and that made

0:10:340:10:41

it worse, Sophie, because the fire

scorched the hill sides and burned

0:10:410:10:45

the vegetation away, then the rain

did that, and well you get

0:10:450:10:49

mudslides, I want to explain, a lot

people think the mudslides is a

0:10:490:10:52

couple of feet of soupy mud. That is

no not the case. That is what is in

0:10:520:10:56

the mud. It is dynamic, rushing down

hill very fast. Imagine it is 4am,

0:10:560:11:02

you are sound asleep and that comes

blasting through your home. This is

0:11:020:11:07

one of the home, it ripped the front

wall right off the home there. You

0:11:070:11:11

can see the devastation that this

causes, and this home, out of all of

0:11:110:11:15

these that were damaged, is actually

in pretty good shape right now.

Are

0:11:150:11:19

they hoping to find more survives?

They are hoping to find more

0:11:190:11:25

survivors. They are going to

continue looking again today. So

0:11:250:11:29

here is the problem right now. I

mean you have all this debris, you

0:11:290:11:34

have homes covered and in some cases

they have got to dig through this,

0:11:340:11:38

so the rescue effort will continue

today, and they do expect to find

0:11:380:11:42

more people, survivors, we are not

so sure.

0:11:420:11:49

UK manufacturing output

has reached its highest

0:11:490:11:51

level in nearly a decade,

after recording its seventh

0:11:510:11:53

consecutive month of

growth in November.

0:11:530:11:57

Renewable energy projects,

boats, aeroplanes and cars

0:11:570:11:59

for export helped grow output

by three-point-nine %

0:11:590:12:01

between September and November -

compared with the same

0:12:010:12:03

period in 2016.

0:12:030:12:05

Our economics correspondent

Andy Verity has the details.

0:12:050:12:13

This Birmingham company makes

precision metal components

0:12:130:12:16

for everything from surgical

implants to rear-view mirrors.

0:12:160:12:19

And business is booming.

0:12:190:12:21

It has been winning business

from customers around the world,

0:12:210:12:24

from pharmaceutical

manufacturers to toolmakers.

0:12:240:12:27

And it is now looking forward

to its strongest year for a decade.

0:12:270:12:32

We have always exported a huge

percentage of what we make.

0:12:320:12:35

Currently that is around 70, 75%.

0:12:350:12:39

Global growth of our customers

and the manufacturing supply chain

0:12:390:12:42

means growth for us.

0:12:420:12:45

So it has been vital in terms

of our success in the last 12 months

0:12:450:12:49

and will remain to be going forward.

0:12:490:12:50

This is how well

manufacturing has done.

0:12:500:12:54

In the three months to the end

of November, the biggest

0:12:540:12:57

rise in seven years.

0:12:570:12:58

And there is more manufacturing

going on now than there

0:12:580:13:00

has been for ten years.

0:13:000:13:02

That has had its effect

on the deficit, the trade deficit,

0:13:020:13:06

the difference between what we sell

abroad and what we buy

0:13:060:13:09

in from abroad.

0:13:090:13:10

That shrank to 6.2 billion,

that is down by £2.1 billion.

0:13:100:13:12

That improving trade position

was helped by the car industry.

0:13:120:13:15

While we are buying fewer of them

at home, we are selling

0:13:150:13:18

more of them abroad.

0:13:180:13:24

And British companies that make

machines that do the manufacturing,

0:13:240:13:26

so-called capital goods,

are tapping into growing demand

0:13:260:13:28

for their products around the world.

0:13:280:13:33

The UK transport sector has

performed particularly strongly

0:13:330:13:35

over the last decade.

0:13:350:13:36

There has been a huge focus

on improving efficiency in the car

0:13:360:13:38

industry in particular

and an enormous amount

0:13:380:13:40

of innovation, looking

at new models, fuel

0:13:400:13:42

efficiency, new materials.

0:13:420:13:51

And that really has tapped

into a customer base

0:13:510:13:53

which is looking to buy those

kinds of products.

0:13:530:13:55

So we have been very much in tune

with the customers that

0:13:550:13:58

are out there globally.

0:13:580:14:03

The sale of works of art to foreign

customers also helped to lift

0:14:030:14:06

the UK export numbers.

0:14:060:14:07

The weak pound means that foreign

buyers with dollars,

0:14:070:14:15

Euros or yen to spend can buy more

British art for their money.

0:14:150:14:18

But construction has been

shrinking now for six months.

0:14:180:14:20

In the three months to November

the amount of work being

0:14:200:14:23

done was down by 2%.

0:14:230:14:24

This once booming sector is now

struggling to extract

0:14:240:14:26

itself from a slump.

0:14:260:14:27

Andy Verity, BBC News.

0:14:270:14:31

A 16-year-old boy has

appeared in court, charged

0:14:310:14:33

with the murder of a shop worker

in London on Saturday.

0:14:330:14:35

49-year-old Vijay Patel was attacked

0:14:350:14:37

after he refused to sell cigarette

papers to a group

0:14:370:14:39

of three teenagers.

0:14:390:14:41

An online crowdfunding page has been

set up by the nearby

0:14:410:14:44

Mill Hill Synagogue to help

Mr Patel's family.

0:14:440:14:46

It has already raised

more than £12,000.

0:14:460:14:55

A man whose body was found buried

in a garden was allegedly killed

0:14:550:14:58

by his daughter several years ago,

the BBC understands.

0:14:580:15:00

Police say that the woman went

into a police station in Stockport

0:15:000:15:03

at the weekend and told detectives

what she had done.

0:15:030:15:05

Judith Moritz is in Stockport now.

0:15:050:15:10

What more do we know?

Well, Sophie

the police say that the woman who is

0:15:100:15:16

63 turned up at a police station on

Sunday, and they say she told them

0:15:160:15:21

she had killed a man, some years

ago, and that she had buried him in

0:15:210:15:24

the garden of a property in this

road. That sparked a forensic

0:15:240:15:30

search, and last night, detectives

confirmed they have found human

0:15:300:15:34

remains here, it is believed that

this is the body of a man named

0:15:340:15:40

Kenneth Coombes. We know neighbours

have been asked if they remember a

0:15:400:15:43

man by that name, that he was in his

late 80s in 2005. The BBC

0:15:430:15:49

understands that the woman, who is

now being questioned on suspicion of

0:15:490:15:54

murder is Kenneth Coombe's daughter.

Greater Manchester Police say the

0:15:540:15:57

investigation is in the early stages

and many questions which still have

0:15:570:16:01

answers.

0:16:010:16:03

The President of South Korea says

Donald Trump deserves credit

0:16:030:16:06

for helping to foster their first

talks with the North in two years.

0:16:060:16:09

Moon Jae-in said pressure

from America and sanctions may well

0:16:090:16:11

have made the meeting possible.

0:16:110:16:12

The talks took place yesterday

in the demilitarised zone which has

0:16:120:16:15

divided the two Koreas since 1953.

0:16:150:16:16

Sophie Long reports from

the South Korean capital, Seoul.

0:16:160:16:25

Communication between the North

and South Korean governments has now

0:16:250:16:28

been re-established.

0:16:280:16:31

A North Korean delegation will be

present at the Winter Olympics

0:16:310:16:34

being hosted by the South.

0:16:340:16:37

And a direct military hotline

connecting to the two Koreas

0:16:370:16:39

has been reactivated.

0:16:390:16:43

But there was barely a mention,

and certainly no movement

0:16:430:16:45

on the fundamental issue

of North Korea's nuclear

0:16:450:16:47

and missile programme.

0:16:470:16:51

Today, the South Korean President

said resolving that was

0:16:510:16:53

the only pathway to peace.

0:16:530:16:59

TRANSLATION:

The denuclearisation

of the Korean peninsula

0:16:590:17:02

is the fundamental pathway

we need to follow.

0:17:020:17:05

This cannot be compromised.

0:17:050:17:07

This is the only way for us

to achieve full peace

0:17:070:17:10

in the Korean peninsula.

0:17:100:17:14

Not everyone was in

favour of the talks.

0:17:140:17:21

Some believe that the North Korean

leaders sudden willingness to engage

0:17:210:17:24

with its neighbour is motivated

by the desire to drive a wedge

0:17:240:17:27

between those allied against him,

as the latest round of UN sanctions

0:17:270:17:29

imposed on his regime

really start to bite.

0:17:290:17:31

But Moon Jae-in was adamant

today that he would not

0:17:310:17:34

allow that to happen.

0:17:340:17:37

TRANSLATION:

In terms

of security and defence,

0:17:370:17:40

South Korea and the United States

are the closest of allies.

0:17:400:17:46

We also share the same

view of the significance

0:17:460:17:48

of the threat from North Korea.

0:17:480:17:51

So South Korea and the United States

have been working closely together

0:17:510:17:55

against North Korea's nuclear

threat.

0:17:550:18:00

Moon Jae-in vowed to make

2018 the turning point

0:18:000:18:03

in inter-Korean relations.

0:18:030:18:06

He hopes the Pyeongchang games

could mark the beginning

0:18:060:18:10

of a process that would create

a life for people here free

0:18:100:18:13

from concerns about war.

0:18:130:18:22

But given the year started

with the North Korean and US leaders

0:18:220:18:24

exchanging threats and boasts

about whose nuclear button

0:18:240:18:26

was biggest, he has

much ground to cover.

Our top story this lunchtime.

0:18:290:18:31

At least 13 people are dead

and the death toll is expected

0:18:310:18:33

to rise after mudslides slam

into homes in California.

0:18:330:18:41

There are warnings that the death

toll could rise.

0:18:410:18:44

And coming up -

supportive or too soft?

0:18:440:18:46

A new Army recruitment

campaign divides opinion.

0:18:460:18:48

Coming up in sport.

0:18:480:18:49

Former Liverpool goalkeeper Tommy

Lawrence has died at the age of 77.

0:18:490:18:52

He was Bill Shankly's first-choice

keeper during the 1960s.

0:18:520:19:02

Thousands of tourists have been left

stranded after heavy snow

0:19:050:19:09

in the Alps cut off towns

and villages across Switzerland,

0:19:090:19:11

France and Italy.

0:19:110:19:13

Visitors are being airlifted out

of Zermatt, one of Switzerland's

0:19:130:19:21

most popular ski resorts,

where around 13000

0:19:210:19:22

people are trapped.

0:19:220:19:23

The avalanche risk in the area

is the highest it's been

0:19:230:19:26

for almost ten years.

0:19:260:19:27

In France, a 39-year-old British

skier is still missing after bad

0:19:270:19:29

weather hampered rescue

efforts in Tignes.

0:19:290:19:31

Tom Burridge has the latest.

0:19:310:19:38

This is the only way out of Zermatt

this morning. The luggage of

0:19:380:19:46

tourists stuck here airlifted out.

Heavy snow has closed all the roads.

0:19:460:19:53

So those who can catch this shuttle

service to a nearby town. Waiting on

0:19:530:19:59

that helipad this lunchtime, Rebecca

Smith.

These are people waiting for

0:19:590:20:04

the next helicopter out.

We spoke as

she began the first leg of a long

0:20:040:20:11

journey back to Manchester.

A lot of

people will say you are stuck in

0:20:110:20:17

some were beautiful, you can go

skiing but that is not the case, you

0:20:170:20:21

are stuck in a hotel room because of

the risk of avalanche.

So this

0:20:210:20:26

morning helicopters were also busy

clearing avalanches. Blowing huge

0:20:260:20:31

quantities of snow off the

mountains, which has fallen in

0:20:310:20:35

recent days. In remote areas one

metre of snow fell in just 24 hours.

0:20:350:20:41

And although conditions in Zermatt

have improved this morning, the risk

0:20:410:20:46

of avalanche in the area remains

high. A Swiss company captured this

0:20:460:20:54

avalanche just outside the town last

week. The deadly force abundantly

0:20:540:20:59

clear. And this was the scene after

a recent avalanche in a French town.

0:20:590:21:10

Further south in the resort of

Tignes, cafes hidden by the snow. It

0:21:100:21:16

was here that John Bromell from

Lincolnshire was snowboarding in

0:21:160:21:20

poor weather on Sunday. He is still

missing. In Zermatt the operation to

0:21:200:21:25

get tourists out on helicopters

continues.

Looking forward to

0:21:250:21:31

getting back down the mountain.

We

live in Australia and we will miss

0:21:310:21:35

the flight from Zurich so we're

happy to leave now.

Heavy snow this

0:21:350:21:39

winter has made many peoples skiing

holidays but with some slopes here

0:21:390:21:44

now closed, too much is causing

problems and treacherous conditions.

0:21:440:21:49

The Chancellor, Philip Hammond,

and the Brexit Secretary,

0:21:490:21:51

David Davis, are making separate

visits to Germany, to try to build

0:21:510:21:54

support for a trade deal

between the UK and the EU

0:21:540:21:57

which includes financial services.

0:21:570:21:59

In a joint article for a German

newspaper, they say it makes "no

0:21:590:22:02

sense" to put in place

what they call "unnecessary

0:22:020:22:05

barriers" to trade

in services or goods.

0:22:050:22:10

First to our Political Correspondent

Ben Wright in Westminster.

0:22:100:22:15

Will they be listened to? Well just

before Christmas we had high fives

0:22:150:22:22

around Westminster most government

ministers when the broad terms of

0:22:220:22:24

the divorce deal between the UK and

the EU was agreed including the

0:22:240:22:29

financial settlement that Britain

will have to pay. That was just a

0:22:290:22:32

first step, the first hurdle to be

cleared. Now we are seeing the

0:22:320:22:35

beginning of the second phase of

Brexit negotiations and it is all

0:22:350:22:39

about the future relationship

between the EU and UK and in

0:22:390:22:43

particular the trade relationship.

So we're seeing key ministers, the

0:22:430:22:47

Chancellor and the Brexit secretary,

who

0:22:470:22:59

wear on a referendum, showing a

united front by going to Germany on

0:23:140:23:16

a charm offensive, putting an arm

around German businesses and saying

0:23:160:23:19

even though we're leaving the single

market and Customs union there can

0:23:190:23:21

still be a really close and good

trade deal between the EU and the UK

0:23:210:23:24

that works in both sides interest.

The UK wants a bespoke deal

0:23:240:23:27

including goods and services because

it is concerned about the future of

0:23:270:23:29

the City of London. So that is the

case they're making Germany. The EU

0:23:290:23:32

for their part has said they will

not countenance is bespoke deal with

0:23:320:23:34

UK and the UK cannot cherry pick the

best bits of the single market and

0:23:340:23:37

there can be no special arrangement

about the City of London. So while

0:23:370:23:40

the UK is in Germany trying to woo

German business and politicians, the

0:23:400:23:42

EU has so far shown it is very solid

as a negotiating block.

0:23:420:23:46

A man who claims he was sexually

abused as a child by the former

0:23:460:23:49

football coach, Barry Bennell,

has hold the court that he didn't

0:23:490:23:52

report the abuse he suffered,

because he didn't want to "spoil any

0:23:520:23:55

chances" of succeeding

as a footballer.

0:23:550:23:56

Barry Bennell, who's now known

as Richard Jones, denies 48 charges

0:23:560:23:59

of child sexual abuse.

0:23:590:24:00

David Ornstein is at

Liverpool Crown Court.

0:24:000:24:10

Yesterday the prosecution laid out

their case against Barry Bennell

0:24:100:24:13

describing him as a predatory and

devious paedophile. Today we heard

0:24:130:24:18

from the first witness, it was

harrowing evidence, it must be said.

0:24:180:24:22

This witness said he met Barry

Bennell when he was playing for

0:24:220:24:26

youth team in the north-west of

England in the early 1980s, aged

0:24:260:24:31

between 11 and 13. And to quote him

he said he used to flash his eyes

0:24:310:24:35

that you, made you feel special. It

was then said that Barry Bennell

0:24:350:24:39

would hand-pick the best

0:24:390:24:51

players and invite them to stay at

his flat above a video shop. Once a

0:25:040:25:07

week and sometimes three or four

times a week in holiday times. They

0:25:070:25:09

would play fight, watch movies and

when the lights went out music would

0:25:090:25:12

come on loudly and the abuse would

begin. Allegedly taking place for

0:25:120:25:14

this individual in you said the tens

of ten is it not hundreds of times.

0:25:140:25:17

It was emotional evidence and the

cross-examination has now begun and

0:25:170:25:19

will continue after the break. Barry

Bennell faces 48 charges and the

0:25:190:25:22

trial is expected to last for eight

weeks.

0:25:220:25:24

The Army has defended

a new recruitment campaign,

0:25:240:25:26

which focuses on the emotional

and physical support

0:25:260:25:27

given to soldiers.

0:25:270:25:28

Advertisements on television, radio

and online will try to reassure

0:25:280:25:31

applicants that their sexuality

or religion will not stand

0:25:310:25:33

in the way of becoming a soldier.

0:25:330:25:35

Critics of the campaign say it

shows the army has bowed

0:25:350:25:37

to political correctness.

0:25:370:25:38

Here's our Defence

Correspondent Jonathan Beale.

0:25:380:25:40

It is all right to cry and show a

motion in the army, a recruitment

0:25:400:25:47

campaign very different to those of

the past. Part of what is called,

0:25:470:25:51

Army belonging. Voiced by shoulders

to say there is a motion and

0:25:510:25:55

physical support for new recruits.

-- by soldiers. The adverts answer

0:25:550:26:00

questions such as can might be gay

and still join the army whilst a

0:26:000:26:05

Muslim soldier explains how he can

still practice his faith. All aimed

0:26:050:26:09

at groups not seen as the

traditional target audience. But

0:26:090:26:13

minorities who may have been

reluctant to sign up.

Our

0:26:130:26:18

traditional cohort would have been

white milk occasions, 16 to 25 rolls

0:26:180:26:22

and there is not as many of those

around as once aware of. Society is

0:26:220:26:27

changing and so it is appropriate

for us to reach out to a broader

0:26:270:26:31

base.

The Army has been struggling

to recruit, made all the more

0:26:310:26:34

difficult by a lack of a major

campaign like Afghanistan or Iraq.

0:26:340:26:39

War is often the best recruiting

sergeant. It is also competing in an

0:26:390:26:44

era of relatively high employment.

The regular strength of the Army

0:26:440:26:48

should be 80 2000. But it is

currently just over 77,000 strong. A

0:26:480:26:54

shortfall of more than 4000. But

some former soldiers question

0:26:540:26:58

whether the Army is trying to be too

politically correct with these

0:26:580:27:02

adverts.

They are aiming the

recruiting campaign at specific

0:27:020:27:06

minorities and they should be aiming

at more broadly at the kind of

0:27:060:27:09

people who will want to join the

army, people who are looking for a

0:27:090:27:12

fight, looking for action and

adventure.

This older advertisement

0:27:120:27:17

is what people might expect from the

Army, a recent plan to drop its Be

0:27:170:27:21

The Best motto because it was seen

as elitist, was blocked by the

0:27:210:27:26

Defence Secretary. It is still an

organisation whose job is to be

0:27:260:27:30

ready for combat. But the head of

the army says it must broaden its

0:27:300:27:34

appeal and reflect modern Britain.

0:27:340:27:42

This time last year he was being

tipped as the next Lewis Hamilton.

0:27:420:27:45

Billy Monger was 17,

and a star of Formula 4 racing.

0:27:450:27:47

Then he had a horrific crash last

April and had to have both legs

0:27:470:27:51

amputated below the knee.

0:27:510:27:52

But his recovery and determination

have astounded doctors,

0:27:520:27:54

and this week, Billy will be driving

in front of crowds for the first

0:27:540:27:57

time since his accident.

0:27:570:27:58

Tim Muffett has been to meet him.

0:27:580:28:00

'Billy Whizz', a nickname

he was determined to keep.

0:28:000:28:06

It's just nine months

since Billy Monger had

0:28:060:28:08

both his lower legs amputated

after a car crash.

0:28:080:28:13

This is a final practice before

driving with a stunt team

0:28:130:28:15

at Birmingham's NEC.

0:28:150:28:20

The aim is to put on a good show.

0:28:200:28:23

I think we've got a great team,

we've got a great bunch

0:28:230:28:26

of lads doing the show,

I'm just hoping everything goes

0:28:260:28:28

smoothly and we have a good time

and do ourselves proud.

0:28:280:28:32

Dunnington Park, last April.

0:28:320:28:34

When Billy's Formula 4 car hit

a stationary vehicle.

0:28:340:28:39

COMMENTATOR: That is horrendous!

0:28:390:28:43

All I wanted to do was to get

through it and be alive.

0:28:430:28:47

There was a slight moment, when I

thought I wouldn't drive again.

0:28:470:28:52

It still hasn't changed the dream.

0:28:520:28:53

The dream stays the same,

that I want to be an F1 driver.

0:28:530:28:58

You've got your prosthetics

here and you're still able

0:28:580:29:00

to control the car and the pedals.

0:29:000:29:02

Many people would find that

really extraordinary.

0:29:020:29:06

When you control the pedal normally

you do it all through your ankle,

0:29:060:29:09

that is how you control how much

input you're putting

0:29:090:29:12

into the pedals.

0:29:120:29:13

But with me, because I haven't got

ankles, the way I simply control

0:29:130:29:16

it is just through my leg like this.

0:29:160:29:21

Rather than going like that,

just doing a push motion instead,

0:29:210:29:24

to control the car.

0:29:240:29:27

Terry Grant has been training Billy

ahead of the Autosport

0:29:270:29:29

international event.

0:29:290:29:32

He's one of the world's

top stunt drivers.

0:29:320:29:37

Drive out, drive out!

0:29:370:29:38

Bang on.

0:29:380:29:41

Billy is a very

special lad, for sure.

0:29:410:29:45

Regardless of his injuries.

0:29:450:29:49

At the moment you are rehearsing

on an airfield, there's

0:29:490:29:51

going to be concrete pillars

where the cones are.

0:29:510:29:53

The level of control he has

got now, for prosthetic

0:29:530:29:56

legs, it is phenomenal.

0:29:560:29:58

Although Billy can use

the accelerator, his car

0:29:580:30:01

is adapted so that this lever

controls the brake.

0:30:010:30:05

He has been backed

by Mission Motorsport,

0:30:050:30:07

a charity which typically helps

wounded servicemen

0:30:070:30:10

and women drive again,

often in specially adapted cars.

0:30:100:30:14

Their freedom of mobility

is a phenomenal thing.

0:30:140:30:17

If that's taken away

from you as an adult,

0:30:170:30:23

it has a dramatic effect

on your life, on your

0:30:230:30:26

own personal freedoms.

0:30:260:30:27

And also, I think, a lot

about your sense of self

0:30:270:30:29

and your independence.

0:30:290:30:31

And to be able to give that back

to somebody is an extraordinary

0:30:310:30:34

thing to be able to do.

0:30:340:30:35

What do your family

think about you getting

0:30:350:30:37

back behind the wheel?

0:30:370:30:38

My mum was very nervous!

0:30:380:30:39

But if I don't do it what else am

I going to do with my life?

0:30:390:30:43

I need to make my life

into something positive.

0:30:430:30:45

Tim Muffett, BBC News.

0:30:450:30:51

Time for a look at the weather.

0:30:510:30:52

Here's Helen Willetts.

0:30:520:30:57

We were talking

0:30:570:30:59

We were talking about the mudslides

in California all triggered by heavy

0:30:590:31:02

rain.

After an incredibly dry period of

0:31:020:31:05

course. But look at this, intense

rain about two or three inches

0:31:050:31:09

falling in just a few hours. But the

good news is that it's clearing away

0:31:090:31:14

and for the coming for five days,

high pressure is building in which

0:31:140:31:18

will ensure some dry weather. Good

news at least for the clean-up but

0:31:180:31:23

it might also produced some rain

across the Caribbean. As for Europe,

0:31:230:31:28

another storm coming through the Bay

of Biscay today which will head

0:31:280:31:31

across the Pyrenees towards the Alps

tomorrow. So we could have further

0:31:310:31:35

snowfall and windy weather as well.

In contrast in UK, a very quiet

0:31:350:31:40

spell of weather and also brighter.

Much brighter for many parts. But

0:31:400:31:48

not all, we've had some rather

stubborn fog and this was Belfast

0:31:480:31:52

just a couple of hours ago. That

will not clear Northern Ireland

0:31:520:31:58

completely before darkness falls. We

still have leaden skies further

0:31:580:32:02

east, grey and damp and the rain has

been quite persistent. Overnight the

0:32:020:32:08

main hazard is the fog. It could

turn out to be freezing fog with

0:32:080:32:13

some icy patches as well.

Particularly across the Severn

0:32:130:32:20

Valley, parts of Wales, north-west

England and again Northern Ireland.

0:32:200:32:24

As for the rest of Scotland, we hope

the rain will clear away from the

0:32:240:32:29

mainland. But it will be a very

chilly start in the morning. Then

0:32:290:32:34

further south are not as helpful for

some sunshine tomorrow as the fog

0:32:340:32:38

will be more widespread. Affecting

some major motorway networks.

0:32:380:32:44

Further east we still have the

remnants of a weather front, Hill

0:32:440:32:48

fog here. Not as breakfast today but

some persistent drizzle around. We

0:32:480:32:55

will see some sunshine further west.

Five or 6 degrees. But again the

0:32:550:33:07

sunshine will compensate.

Temperatures around seven or 8

0:33:070:33:10

degrees. Feeling colder weather fog

lingers. Another repeat performance

0:33:100:33:14

tomorrow night, some icy patches and

fog around. And we have to wait

0:33:140:33:20

until next week to clear that out of

the way. Looking promising, and the

0:33:200:33:28

weekend looking drive for most if a

little bit grey. And just again a

0:33:280:33:33

reminder for tomorrow morning of

some dense fog around.
