The Prime Minister says Britain
and China are enjoying a golden era
in their relationship,
after meeting the country's
President Xi Jinping in Beijing.
On the second day of her trip
to try to boost trade
between the two countries,
Theresa May said she hoped her visit
would strengthen the "global
between the UK and China.
Robin Brant reports from China.
There is some flash photography in
this report, from Shanghai.
Day two of her trip,
it was time to see the sights.
With her husband, Philip,
at her side, the Prime Minister
toured the Forbidden City
but there was no stopping talk
of Brexit following her.
In Beijing, with one eye
on Brussels, the Prime Minister
signalled she will fight proposals
to give UK residency rights
to EU citizens who come
during the post-Brexit transitionary
There's a pushback aimed
at critics on her own side.
A Tory MP has accused Mrs May
of governing like a tortoise
when what is needed is a lion.
A Cabinet minister with her on her
trip says the doubters need to see
things more like her hosts do.
They are looking at performance,
they are looking to see what the UK
is doing and they look
at the Prime Minister in a different
way than some of the internal
tearoom discussions in the UK do.
The problem for Dr Fox is that
sometimes the discussions
in the tearooms of Westminster
are similar to what is being
talked by the leaders
in the teahouses of China.
In both cases they see
a Prime Minister on the road beating
the drum for trade but they also see
a leader weakened by that general
election result with a cloud
of uncertainty from Brexit
hanging over her.
Sowing the seeds for the UK-China
relationship after Brexit is part
of the focus of this trip.
That includes science collaboration
as China tries to rely
less on importing food.

Speaking while in China,
Theresa May has signalled
that she will fight a demand
by the European Union that EU
citizens who move to the UK
during the transition period,
after March 2019, will be given
full residency rights.
The Prime Minister said that
in the EU referendum people had not
voted for "nothing to change".
Our political correspondent
Iain Watson reports.
Oh, smite -- all smiles, in December
the EU gave the green light for
talks and trade and transition
period of about two years after
Brexit, but now there's a snag. The
government thought it was agreed
that full EU citizens' rights to
work here would end after Brexit in
March 20 19. Now the EU says those
rights should be extended until the
end of any transition. In their
view, December 20 20. To many
Brexiteers, that's unacceptable.
This is an issue that we can't come
from eyes on. We do need to make it
absolutely sure that any EU citizens
who come here during the
transitional period will not begin
in the permanent right to reside in
this country. We'll have left the
European Union and they can't expect
the same provisions to prevail after
And the pressure from
those pro-Brexit backbenchers,
Theresa May told reporters on her
trip to China that innocence Brexit
means Brexit. People coming to
Britain after March 20 19th in the
full knowledge that we've left the
EU should be treated differently. A
point repeated by her ministers in
The citizens' rights
agreement reached in December does
give certainty about the rights of
EU citizens already here going
forward but this agreement does not
cover those arriving after we leave
So what would this mean in
practice? Well, the only change that
EU citizens would see if they come
here during a transition period is
they'd have to register. But if they
wanted to stay on beyond that
transition period, the government
says new rules could be applied
depending on the negotiations that
might mean the need for a work
permit or Visa. Government sources
say EU citizens wouldn't be thrown
out, but pro-EU campaigners are more
worried that they might not come in
the first place.
A message to EU
migrants is absolutely unequivocal.
If you want to come here you will
have less rights than the people you
are working alongside, less rights
than the people you are living
alongside, and that you will have no
security in this country.
Speculation about Theresa May's
future continues at Westminster and
she's been offered apparently
helpful advice by the man she sacked
as Chancellor and who campaigned
against leaving the EU.
Conservative Party, which I have
worked very hard over my lifetime to
put back in a position where it
could be the government, must offer
to the country a big plan for the
future, big ideas, big vision, a
plan to engage with the rest of the
world like China, or indeed a form
of Frexit which is not as economic
as damaging as some of the forms
being produced -- waveform of
Brexit. I would humbly suggest
that's what's required.
increasingly apparent the Prime
Minister doesn't simply have to
negotiate with the EU, but with
members of her own party as well.
Iain Watson, BBC News, Westminster.
In a moment we'll get the picture
from Adam Fleming in Brussels,
but first our assistant political
editor Norman Smith
is in Westminster.
What reaction to what Theresa May
By and large Mrs May's
critics have been pretty pleased
because it suggests that the next
round of transition talks are going
to be a bit of a rough house. I
think many people thought there were
going to be a walk in the park. Now
it looks like there will be some
serious rows, and for Mrs May it
enables her to turn to her critics
say, look, I'm not a pushover, I'm
not going to be rolled over, I'm
going to stand my ground, we're not
going to be a vassal state. So she
makes a stand over freedom of
movement. She's also reassured her
critics this transition period is
only going to be around two years.
This morning David Davis has said
there is also going to be a bust up
over our right to negotiate our own
trade agreements during this
transition period. All of which has
been welcomed by her critics,
evidence that Team made are flexing
their muscles. The difficulty of
this misleads may have to backpedal,
if she has to compromise and that's
been the story of the Brexit
negotiations so far. You will give a
bit and then we'll give a bit. But
at the end of the day if we end up
with some sort of bunch over the
issue of freedom of movement, with
maybe new EU rivals having to
register, but may still enjoying
residency rights, then the backlash
from Mrs May's critics is likely to
be all the more ferocious. It seems
to me she's won herself some
applause, some temporary breathing
space, but if she backs down on her
position could be even more
Norman, thank you. Adam
Fleming in Brussels, what awaits her
there, given everything at Norman
was just saying?
Well, I Harrald
Verhofstadt, the member of the
European Parliament who coordinates
the parliament's Brexit work is off
work sick today but he tweeted from
his sick bed saying these rights are
absolutely non-negotiable -- Guy
Verhofstadt. He says the EU will not
accept a situation where European
citizens who moved to the UK before
Brexit day have one set of rights,
but EU citizens who moved to the UK
after Brexit date have a different
set of rights during the transition
period. That's what he feels about
it when he's under the weather, not
very happy. As for the European
Commission, which runs the Brexit
talks, their vice president said he
didn't want to comment on comments
made by the British Prime Minister
while she was on the other side of
the world. He said he would rather
wait to see the official British
position put forward in the
negotiations. By complete
coincidence the campaign groups that
represent the citizens affected, EU
nationals in the UK, British people
in the EU, they are in Brussels for
an event and they are dismayed about
all of this. We'll only know for
sure what happens when the talks get
under way about the transition
period and there are no dates for
them in the diary as yet.

The average age of people
who have a stroke for the first time
in England has fallen
in the past decade.
Figures from Public Health England
show that while the majority
of strokes occur in people over
the age of 70, more than a third
of first time strokes hit
adults between 40 and 69.
Here's our health correspondent,
I had a stroke.

He says his stroke has changed his
life, that he used to walk 50 miles
a week, now he struggles
over short distances.

and when I twisted and
tried to stand up I immediately fell
over and I couldn't feel, I had no
sensation on my left side at all.
So, I didn't know what had happened,
The older you are the
greater your chance of
having a stroke, but the average age
for men having a stroke has
fallen from 71 to 68.
For women, it's gone from 75 to 73.
Figures from Public Health
England show almost
60% of first-time stroke
patients were 70 or over.
But there's been an increase
in middle-aged people
In 2007, about 15% of people
having a first stroke were
aged between 40 and 59.
By 2016, it had gone up to 20%.
I think the first thing is awareness
that stroke can happen.
Awareness how awful stroke can be,
and therefore it really is worth
making an effort right
from the beginning of your life,
or as soon as you become an adult,
thinking about the longer term,
not to think that stroke is just a
disease for older people.
If someone is having
a stroke it's vital to get

Lifetime doping bans given to 28
Russian Olympic athletes have been
overturned by the Court
of Arbitration for Sport.
The court said the evidence provided
by the International Olympic
Committee wasn't sufficient
to punish the athletes -
and their results from the 2014
Sochi Games will now be reinstated.
Our sports correspondent
Alex Capstick is here.
How has this come about? What is the

convex system which protected drug
cheat. An IOC investigation found
more than 40 Russian athletes had
benefited from the system and handed
them lifetime bans. All but one
appeal to the Court of Arbitration
for Sport and they were held in
Geneva last week. What will be a
shock to anti-doping campaigners,
the Court of Arbitration for Sport
said there wasn't enough evidence to
prove that 28 of these athletes had
in fact cheated at those Games so
they are now free to compete.
They've been cleared completely. A
others have been found to have
committed doping violations but
whilst their lifetime bans have been
reduced most won't be allowed to
compete in Pyeongchang -- 11 others
have been found. What happens to the
28? It is unclear. The IOC have said
they are very disappointed by the
decision but they say it doesn't
mean these athletes are innocent or
that they will be invited to South
Korea to compete as part of the
neutral team, 169 athletes have been
invited from Russia. As for Russia,

welcomed the decision. One leading

The economic gap between the north
and south of England
will continue to grow,
unless the government prioritises
education and skills -
that's the warning from
the Northern Powerhouse Partnership,
a body set up to try
to re-balance the UK economy.
It says pupils in the north
are on average one GCSE grade
behind those in the south
and that the region
is being held back by a lack
of investment in education.
Nina Warhurst reports.
If your child is born in the
north-east their chances of going to
an underperforming school are three
times higher than if they were born

George Osborne wants businesses
to follow Barclays' lead.
They have more than 500
apprentices across the north.
They say they want northern
talent to stay here.
I think it was an opportunity that
I was quite surprised to find that I
didn't have to move away for.
Because I think my kind
of preconception was, you would
probably have to move
to have a really good career.
But now, you know, my
view's completely changed
on that now that I've found
the degree programme because you can
do it from anywhere.
The authors of the report focused
on northern employers
who consistently pointed to poor
skills and inadequate training.
They also said they
worry about the brain
drain of northern talent
disappearing south, and all of that
feeds into a gap in productivity
that's getting wider.
The Government says
it is stepping up after being
accused of neglecting the north
from the day George Osborne
left Downing Street.
One of the real unsung bits
about our Northern Powerhouse is
the £70 million we've
put into our Northern
Powerhouse school strategy,

good as it can be to

that we have set up.
We're going to do
some more division.
It's a complicated equation,
more government money plus
more business investment
could equal 850,000 new jobs
in the north by 2050.
But can the maths add up?

It is a terribly sad
situation, the court have said
today, the judge and barristers and
everyone here, is agreed over how
difficult this is. The situation is
that Alfie Evans, whose father has
just left court for the lunch break,
has been suffering from a brain
condition since he was born in May
2016. Alder Hey Hospital say that
they believe that now the life

should be withdrawn and have made an
application for him to be taken to a
hospice. But Alfie Potter my parents
Kate and Tom fundamentally disagree.
They want instead for Alfie to be
taken to Rome to a hospital there
they've been in touch with and they
believe the hospital can give a
different kind of care that's what
they want to happen. It's all ended
up in court, it's down to a judge to
decide. They have been moments of
high emotion today because Tom
Evans, who is just 21, Alfie's
father, has been representing
himself and he broke down in tears
as he heard the hospital's barrister
described his son as a normal lovely
looking boy. The court adjourned for
a short time because of the high
emotion and when everyone came back
the judge, Mr Justice Hayden, said
to Mr Evans that he knew how
difficult this must be and that he
had noticed, in fact, people in
court wearing T-shirts that say
Alfie's army on them, there to
support Alfie and the judge said we
are all in Alfie's army and all want
the best ultimately for Alfie but it
will be up to the judge to decide

Facebook has reported a big jump
in profits despite users spending
significantly less time on the site.
It comes after the social network
announced changes designed
to prioritise posts from friends,
at the expense of content
from businesses and media companies.
Our business correspondent
Theo Leggett is with me.
Fiola, you'd better explain what the
changes are and why there has been
all of this change on Facebook.
you log onto Facebook what you see
is chosen for you by Facebook's
computers based on what the company
thinks you will find most
interesting. The change is designed
to encourage more interactions with
your friends and family, so, for
example, a photo of their cats, or a
selfie, or whatever, and so you will
see more of that kind of stuff and
less material published by news
organisations and so on, so less
news and fewer videos. The idea,
Facebook says, is to encourage more
meaningful social interaction
because that's what it says makes
people happier, and encourage less
of the sort of sensational
polarising news stuff we all see on
our feeds every day.
spending less time on it as a result
and get profits are still up, how
does that work?
Facebook has 1.4
billion users and they spend on
average 40 minutes a day on the site
so if they spend a couple of minutes
lest it is not a huge problem. At
the same time what Facebook is doing
is trying to make sure people see
the adverts that are relevant to
them. If you have 1.4 billion users
and just broadcast an advert it's
not going to necessarily get to the
people who want to see it. So it is
targeting more. For example, if you
look for a hotel in a particular
city on a website and don't book you
might find an advert for hotels in
that area appearing on your feet,
targeting adverts, you're more
likely to respond to it, advertisers
pay a premium to have the most
receptive people see their adverts
and therefore it will make more

The Chief Inspector of Schools
in England has warned that religious

to narrow children's horizons

respect for all faiths and none and

we have to look for is signs that

West Ham have suspended
their director of player

In a statement, the club said

West Ham official and an agent and
in the e-mail it is alleged Tony
Henry said they didn't want to sign
any more African players. When
confronted about this Tony Henry
admitted that that was indeed the
case, they wanted to limit the
number of African players because
"They have a bad attitude and cause
mayhem when they are not in the
team." Tony Henry, it is claimed,
also suggested it was club policy

The end of January is a milestone
for all those people who pledged
to go the whole month
without drinking alcohol.
Organisers of the Dry January
campaign say thousands of people
signed up to take part.
Another campaign - Veganuary -
has also reported thousands pledging
to avoid eating animal-derived
products for the month,
with more people questioning
where their food comes
from and the ethics
behind its production.
Danny Savage has been to meet people
taking part in Leeds.
A vegan cafe in Leeds.
There's no meat or dairy
products in any of the
food here, and for the last month
non-vegans have been encouraged to
give it a go.
And those behind Veganuary say
it's a lot easier today
than it was a few years ago.
When I went vegan seven
years ago there was
none of the chain restaurants doing
vegan options - now nearly all of
them either have vegan options
on the menu or they've got
a vegan menu itself.
A lot of the supermarkets now,
the range of products that are
available to people going vegan
is a lot better than it was six
or seven years ago, so it's moving
in the right direction.
And what's the one thing you miss?
Tabatha went vegan for
January, despite some
cravings she's stuck
to it and will continue.
The thing that got me in the first
place was actually the
environmental impact of veganism
and vegetarianism, but yeah,
health, ethics, there's
just so many reasons,
I think, to go vegan.
And it's going OK?
You haven't struggled?
No, I haven't actually struggled.
You've completed it?
You haven't fallen off
the wagon as such?
No, I haven't.
At a nearby bakery,
Ellie has built up a
business making vegan cakes.
Production has grown
rapidly because veganism
is no longer a niche,
it's becoming mainstream.
It's been crazy busy.
Lots of cafes have started
doing it, they want to
accommodate everybody so they're
wanting to offer a really good range
and just the general public as well,
you'll notice, if you go to a market
or even just going to the big vegan
fairs there's much, much
And the growth in trade is reflected
by a growing change in
Veganism as a lifestyle choice has
definitely boomed in the last
But for a lot of other people
they're choosing a more flexible
approach, even part-time.
Perhaps reducing their
meat intake to once
or twice a week, taking a more
vegetable-centric approach the other
days, and for these people Veganuary
is a brilliant introduction and a
way to test the waters.
The organisers say
about 78,000 people
in the UK tried going
vegan in January.
They think even more
will have a go next year.

they are distantly related, close

they be talking about? As royals
they don't do politics but there is
a strong political context to do
with anything concerning Britain and

area looking over the London city
skyline. Today we are going to keep
largely clear skies, for a number of
people some sunshine but showers
will continue to affect northern and
western areas and we have a clump of
showers working down from the North
York Moors where they could be sleet
and a bit of snow over the tops, the
club of showers working at East
Anglia through the afternoon. It
feels colder this afternoon on
account of the brisk and gusty north
and north westerly winds, continuing
to blow around coastal counties over
night to night. We could see one or
two icy patches developing overnight
as the road temperatures dipped
below freezing. But in the towns and
cities we are looking at lows of
2-4d. Tomorrow the winds will be a
bit lighter but there will be plenty
of sunshine around so it went the US
chilly. They will be showers in the
morning through the afternoon across
eastern Scotland and eastern areas
of England but they will thin out as
the day goes by and one or two
showers for parts of western Wales
and Cornwall. Otherwise it is
largely dry, temperatures between
five and 8 degrees. Looking ahead to
the weekend weather prospects, we
have a band of rain, perhaps some
snow to contend with on Saturday,
often cloudy this weekend, and there
will be some cold winds developing,
particularly across south-east
England. Here is the weather charts
for Saturday, this band of rain will
become slow-moving on Saturday and
will turn to snow across the high
ground in Scotland, across Wales and
the Pennines too. It's possible some
of the rain will turn to sleet, or a
bit of snow developing through the
afternoon, perhaps lower down across
parts of the Midlands and southern
England, although I think amounts of
snow will be very small if that
happened. By Sunday we have quite a
bit of dry weather, but a lot of
cloud for England and Wales, the
best of the Sunshine for the north
and west for Scotland and Northern
Ireland. The wind is picking up in
the south-east will make it feel
pretty chilly. Now I'm going to skip
ahead to development is through
Monday night into Tuesday because a
band of snow could be on its way
moving across the country, the main
uncertainty is how far eastwards it
will push across but it could bring
a significant spell of snow, Monday
night into Tuesday, and it's
something we are watching very
something we are watching very
carefully. Jane. Thank you very
