from Westminster and Brussels.

Also this lunchtime.

0:00:390:00:40

Stroke patients are getting younger

0:00:430:00:48

Lifetime bans for doping given to 28

0:01:140:01:20

Good afternoon and welcome

to the BBC News at One.

0:01:330:01:36

The Prime Minister says Britain

and China are enjoying a golden era

0:01:360:01:39

in their relationship,

after meeting the country's

0:01:390:01:42

President Xi Jinping in Beijing.

0:01:420:01:44

On the second day of her trip

to try to boost trade

0:01:440:01:47

between the two countries,

Theresa May said she hoped her visit

0:01:470:01:49

would strengthen the "global

strategic partnership"

0:01:490:01:51

between the UK and China.

0:01:510:01:52

Robin Brant reports from China.

0:01:520:02:00

There is some flash photography in

this report, from Shanghai.

0:02:030:02:08

Day two of her trip,

it was time to see the sights.

0:02:080:02:11

With her husband, Philip,

at her side, the Prime Minister

0:02:110:02:13

toured the Forbidden City

but there was no stopping talk

0:02:130:02:16

of Brexit following her.

0:02:160:02:17

In Beijing, with one eye

on Brussels, the Prime Minister

0:02:170:02:19

signalled she will fight proposals

to give UK residency rights

0:02:190:02:22

to EU citizens who come

during the post-Brexit transitionary

0:02:220:02:25

period.

0:02:250:02:29

There's a pushback aimed

at critics on her own side.

0:02:290:02:33

A Tory MP has accused Mrs May

of governing like a tortoise

0:02:330:02:36

when what is needed is a lion.

0:02:360:02:40

A Cabinet minister with her on her

trip says the doubters need to see

0:02:400:02:43

things more like her hosts do.

0:02:430:02:47

They are looking at performance,

they are looking to see what the UK

0:02:470:02:51

is doing and they look

at the Prime Minister in a different

0:02:510:02:53

way than some of the internal

tearoom discussions in the UK do.

0:02:530:03:01

The problem for Dr Fox is that

sometimes the discussions

0:03:020:03:04

in the tearooms of Westminster

are similar to what is being

0:03:040:03:07

talked by the leaders

in the teahouses of China.

0:03:070:03:09

In both cases they see

a Prime Minister on the road beating

0:03:090:03:12

the drum for trade but they also see

a leader weakened by that general

0:03:120:03:15

election result with a cloud

of uncertainty from Brexit

0:03:150:03:17

hanging over her.

0:03:170:03:23

Sowing the seeds for the UK-China

relationship after Brexit is part

0:03:230:03:26

of the focus of this trip.

0:03:260:03:27

That includes science collaboration

as China tries to rely

0:03:270:03:30

less on importing food.

0:03:300:03:33

Then there is Britain's

cultural export.

0:03:330:03:37

We know that Dr Who and

Downton Abbey are great

0:03:370:03:39

successes here in China.

0:03:390:03:41

I've just been meeting the company

responsible for something that

0:03:410:03:44

I have to confess I haven't seen.

0:03:440:03:49

I have seen Downton

Abbey and Dr Who.

0:03:490:03:52

I have not watched Octonauts.

0:03:520:03:54

It is a UK children's cartoon

which is apparently being enjoyed

0:03:540:03:57

by millions of children

here in China.

0:03:570:04:03

Away from entertainment

and back to business,

0:04:030:04:05

this was the most important meeting

of the day with China's President.

0:04:050:04:10

The Prime Minister wants to deepen

what she called the global

0:04:100:04:13

strategic partnership.

0:04:130:04:16

It was almost certainly one

conversation over tea that didn't

0:04:160:04:18

touch on her leadership problems.

0:04:180:04:21

We drink Lapsang.

0:04:210:04:29

Robin Brant, BBC News, Shanghai.

0:04:300:04:34

Speaking while in China,

Theresa May has signalled

0:04:340:04:36

that she will fight a demand

by the European Union that EU

0:04:360:04:39

citizens who move to the UK

during the transition period,

0:04:390:04:41

after March 2019, will be given

full residency rights.

0:04:410:04:43

The Prime Minister said that

in the EU referendum people had not

0:04:430:04:46

voted for "nothing to change".

0:04:460:04:47

Our political correspondent

Iain Watson reports.

0:04:470:04:54

Oh, smite -- all smiles, in December

the EU gave the green light for

0:04:570:05:02

talks and trade and transition

period of about two years after

0:05:020:05:08

Brexit, but now there's a snag. The

government thought it was agreed

0:05:080:05:10

that full EU citizens' rights to

work here would end after Brexit in

0:05:100:05:16

March 20 19. Now the EU says those

rights should be extended until the

0:05:160:05:20

end of any transition. In their

view, December 20 20. To many

0:05:200:05:25

Brexiteers, that's unacceptable.

This is an issue that we can't come

0:05:250:05:29

from eyes on. We do need to make it

absolutely sure that any EU citizens

0:05:290:05:35

who come here during the

transitional period will not begin

0:05:350:05:37

in the permanent right to reside in

this country. We'll have left the

0:05:370:05:43

European Union and they can't expect

the same provisions to prevail after

0:05:430:05:46

we've gone.

And the pressure from

those pro-Brexit backbenchers,

0:05:460:05:52

Theresa May told reporters on her

trip to China that innocence Brexit

0:05:520:05:55

means Brexit. People coming to

Britain after March 20 19th in the

0:05:550:05:59

full knowledge that we've left the

EU should be treated differently. A

0:05:590:06:04

point repeated by her ministers in

the Commons.

The citizens' rights

0:06:040:06:09

agreement reached in December does

give certainty about the rights of

0:06:090:06:13

EU citizens already here going

forward but this agreement does not

0:06:130:06:17

cover those arriving after we leave

the EU.

So what would this mean in

0:06:170:06:22

practice? Well, the only change that

EU citizens would see if they come

0:06:220:06:26

here during a transition period is

they'd have to register. But if they

0:06:260:06:30

wanted to stay on beyond that

transition period, the government

0:06:300:06:34

says new rules could be applied

depending on the negotiations that

0:06:340:06:38

might mean the need for a work

permit or Visa. Government sources

0:06:380:06:43

say EU citizens wouldn't be thrown

out, but pro-EU campaigners are more

0:06:430:06:47

worried that they might not come in

the first place.

A message to EU

0:06:470:06:53

migrants is absolutely unequivocal.

If you want to come here you will

0:06:530:06:56

have less rights than the people you

are working alongside, less rights

0:06:560:06:59

than the people you are living

alongside, and that you will have no

0:06:590:07:02

security in this country.

Speculation about Theresa May's

0:07:020:07:07

future continues at Westminster and

she's been offered apparently

0:07:070:07:11

helpful advice by the man she sacked

as Chancellor and who campaigned

0:07:110:07:13

against leaving the EU.

The

Conservative Party, which I have

0:07:130:07:17

worked very hard over my lifetime to

put back in a position where it

0:07:170:07:21

could be the government, must offer

to the country a big plan for the

0:07:210:07:27

future, big ideas, big vision, a

plan to engage with the rest of the

0:07:270:07:31

world like China, or indeed a form

of Frexit which is not as economic

0:07:310:07:34

as damaging as some of the forms

being produced -- waveform of

0:07:340:07:39

Brexit. I would humbly suggest

that's what's required.

It's

0:07:390:07:43

increasingly apparent the Prime

Minister doesn't simply have to

0:07:430:07:46

negotiate with the EU, but with

members of her own party as well.

0:07:460:07:49

Iain Watson, BBC News, Westminster.

0:07:490:07:55

In a moment we'll get the picture

from Adam Fleming in Brussels,

0:07:550:07:57

but first our assistant political

editor Norman Smith

0:07:570:07:59

is in Westminster.

0:07:590:08:02

What reaction to what Theresa May

was saying?

By and large Mrs May's

0:08:020:08:07

critics have been pretty pleased

because it suggests that the next

0:08:070:08:10

round of transition talks are going

to be a bit of a rough house. I

0:08:100:08:14

think many people thought there were

going to be a walk in the park. Now

0:08:140:08:18

it looks like there will be some

serious rows, and for Mrs May it

0:08:180:08:22

enables her to turn to her critics

say, look, I'm not a pushover, I'm

0:08:220:08:26

not going to be rolled over, I'm

going to stand my ground, we're not

0:08:260:08:29

going to be a vassal state. So she

makes a stand over freedom of

0:08:290:08:32

movement. She's also reassured her

critics this transition period is

0:08:320:08:36

only going to be around two years.

This morning David Davis has said

0:08:360:08:40

there is also going to be a bust up

over our right to negotiate our own

0:08:400:08:48

trade agreements during this

transition period. All of which has

0:08:480:08:50

been welcomed by her critics,

evidence that Team made are flexing

0:08:500:08:54

their muscles. The difficulty of

this misleads may have to backpedal,

0:08:540:08:58

if she has to compromise and that's

been the story of the Brexit

0:08:580:09:02

negotiations so far. You will give a

bit and then we'll give a bit. But

0:09:020:09:07

at the end of the day if we end up

with some sort of bunch over the

0:09:070:09:11

issue of freedom of movement, with

maybe new EU rivals having to

0:09:110:09:14

register, but may still enjoying

residency rights, then the backlash

0:09:140:09:19

from Mrs May's critics is likely to

be all the more ferocious. It seems

0:09:190:09:23

to me she's won herself some

applause, some temporary breathing

0:09:230:09:30

space, but if she backs down on her

position could be even more

0:09:300:09:33

precarious.

Norman, thank you. Adam

Fleming in Brussels, what awaits her

0:09:330:09:40

there, given everything at Norman

was just saying?

Well, I Harrald

0:09:400:09:46

Verhofstadt, the member of the

European Parliament who coordinates

0:09:460:09:48

the parliament's Brexit work is off

work sick today but he tweeted from

0:09:480:09:53

his sick bed saying these rights are

absolutely non-negotiable -- Guy

0:09:530:09:59

Verhofstadt. He says the EU will not

accept a situation where European

0:09:590:10:03

citizens who moved to the UK before

Brexit day have one set of rights,

0:10:030:10:08

but EU citizens who moved to the UK

after Brexit date have a different

0:10:080:10:13

set of rights during the transition

period. That's what he feels about

0:10:130:10:16

it when he's under the weather, not

very happy. As for the European

0:10:160:10:20

Commission, which runs the Brexit

talks, their vice president said he

0:10:200:10:23

didn't want to comment on comments

made by the British Prime Minister

0:10:230:10:27

while she was on the other side of

the world. He said he would rather

0:10:270:10:30

wait to see the official British

position put forward in the

0:10:300:10:34

negotiations. By complete

coincidence the campaign groups that

0:10:340:10:37

represent the citizens affected, EU

nationals in the UK, British people

0:10:370:10:43

in the EU, they are in Brussels for

an event and they are dismayed about

0:10:430:10:49

all of this. We'll only know for

sure what happens when the talks get

0:10:490:10:54

under way about the transition

period and there are no dates for

0:10:540:10:56

them in the diary as yet.

Adam

Fleming in Brussels and Norman Smith

0:10:560:11:01

in Westminster, thank you.

0:11:010:11:03

The average age of people

who have a stroke for the first time

0:11:030:11:07

in England has fallen

in the past decade.

0:11:070:11:09

Figures from Public Health England

show that while the majority

0:11:090:11:11

of strokes occur in people over

the age of 70, more than a third

0:11:110:11:14

of first time strokes hit

adults between 40 and 69.

0:11:140:11:17

Here's our health correspondent,

Catherine Burns.

0:11:170:11:22

I had a stroke.

0:11:220:11:23

I had a stroke.

0:11:230:11:29

I had a stroke.

I had a stroke.

0:11:290:11:34

Adrian Jones was just 53

when he happened to him.

0:11:340:11:36

He says his stroke has changed his

life, that he used to walk 50 miles

0:11:360:11:40

a week, now he struggles

over short distances.

0:11:400:11:42

I didn't feel too great straightaway

and when I twisted and

0:11:420:11:44

tried to stand up I immediately fell

over and I couldn't feel, I had no

0:11:440:11:49

sensation on my left side at all.

0:11:490:11:51

So, I didn't know what had happened,

obviously panicking.

0:11:510:11:57

The older you are the

greater your chance of

0:11:570:12:05

having a stroke, but the average age

for men having a stroke has

0:12:060:12:09

fallen from 71 to 68.

0:12:090:12:11

For women, it's gone from 75 to 73.

0:12:110:12:13

Figures from Public Health

England show almost

0:12:130:12:14

60% of first-time stroke

patients were 70 or over.

0:12:140:12:16

But there's been an increase

in middle-aged people

0:12:160:12:19

being affected.

0:12:190:12:21

In 2007, about 15% of people

having a first stroke were

0:12:210:12:24

aged between 40 and 59.

0:12:240:12:27

By 2016, it had gone up to 20%.

0:12:270:12:31

I think the first thing is awareness

that stroke can happen.

0:12:310:12:35

Awareness how awful stroke can be,

and therefore it really is worth

0:12:350:12:40

making an effort right

from the beginning of your life,

0:12:400:12:45

or as soon as you become an adult,

to be

0:12:450:12:47

thinking about the longer term,

not to think that stroke is just a

0:12:470:12:50

disease for older people.

0:12:500:12:52

If someone is having

a stroke it's vital to get

0:12:520:12:55

help quickly.

0:12:550:12:56

So a campaign's been launched

to help people recognise

0:12:560:12:58

the symptoms.

0:12:580:13:00

If people can get

a hospital quickly, get the

0:13:000:13:04

life-saving treatment

that they need within

0:13:040:13:05

three hours, it means

that

0:13:050:13:13

not only is their life going to be

saved but also they're likely to

0:13:130:13:16

live a life with reduced disability

and burden associated with stroke,

0:13:160:13:19

so please do act fast.

0:13:190:13:20

Face - has it fallen on one side?

0:13:200:13:22

Arms, can they raise them?

0:13:220:13:23

Speech, is it slurred?

0:13:230:13:27

It's worth saying too,

40 to 74-year-olds in England are

0:13:270:13:30

eligible for health checks to help

spot the early signs of various

0:13:300:13:33

conditions including strokes.

0:13:330:13:35

Catherine Burns, BBC News.

0:13:350:13:43

Lifetime doping bans given to 28

Russian Olympic athletes have been

0:13:450:13:47

overturned by the Court

of Arbitration for Sport.

0:13:470:13:49

The court said the evidence provided

by the International Olympic

0:13:490:13:52

Committee wasn't sufficient

to punish the athletes -

0:13:520:13:53

and their results from the 2014

Sochi Games will now be reinstated.

0:13:530:13:57

Our sports correspondent

Alex Capstick is here.

0:13:570:14:04

How has this come about? What is the

court's ruling?

This stretches back

0:14:040:14:10

to the Winter games in Sochi, where

Russia was accused of enacting a

0:14:100:14:15

convex system which protected drug

cheat. An IOC investigation found

0:14:150:14:21

more than 40 Russian athletes had

benefited from the system and handed

0:14:210:14:25

them lifetime bans. All but one

appeal to the Court of Arbitration

0:14:250:14:28

for Sport and they were held in

Geneva last week. What will be a

0:14:280:14:32

shock to anti-doping campaigners,

the Court of Arbitration for Sport

0:14:320:14:36

said there wasn't enough evidence to

prove that 28 of these athletes had

0:14:360:14:40

in fact cheated at those Games so

they are now free to compete.

0:14:400:14:44

They've been cleared completely. A

others have been found to have

0:14:440:14:48

committed doping violations but

whilst their lifetime bans have been

0:14:480:14:52

reduced most won't be allowed to

compete in Pyeongchang -- 11 others

0:14:520:14:57

have been found. What happens to the

28? It is unclear. The IOC have said

0:14:570:15:02

they are very disappointed by the

decision but they say it doesn't

0:15:020:15:05

mean these athletes are innocent or

that they will be invited to South

0:15:050:15:09

Korea to compete as part of the

neutral team, 169 athletes have been

0:15:090:15:15

invited from Russia. As for Russia,

as you would expect, they've

0:15:150:15:18

welcomed the decision. One leading

official from the Kremlin has said

0:15:180:15:21

it's a victory for justice, but with

just

0:15:210:15:34

Our top story this lunchtime.

0:15:340:15:35

over a week to go before the start

of the Games it's fair to say it's

0:15:350:15:39

all a bit of a mess.

Alex Capstick,

thank you.

Alex Capstick, thank you.

0:15:420:15:42

Theresa May says Britain and China

are enjoying a golden era

0:15:420:15:44

in their relationship.

0:15:440:15:45

And still to come -

0:15:450:15:46

Why Facebook's profits are up

despite users spending less time

0:15:460:15:49

on the social network.

0:15:490:15:51

Coming up in sport -

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho

0:15:510:15:54

slams his side's "ridiculous" start,

conceding just 11 seconds

0:15:540:15:56

into their 2-0 defeat to Spurs

in the Premier League last night.

0:15:560:16:04

I do apologise - we will get there

eventually. I do hope the story is

0:16:200:16:28

worth waiting for!

0:16:280:16:30

The economic gap between the north

and south of England

0:16:300:16:32

will continue to grow,

unless the government prioritises

0:16:320:16:34

education and skills -

that's the warning from

0:16:340:16:36

the Northern Powerhouse Partnership,

a body set up to try

0:16:360:16:39

to re-balance the UK economy.

0:16:390:16:40

It says pupils in the north

are on average one GCSE grade

0:16:400:16:43

behind those in the south

and that the region

0:16:430:16:45

is being held back by a lack

of investment in education.

0:16:450:16:47

Nina Warhurst reports.

0:16:470:16:52

If your child is born in the

north-east their chances of going to

0:16:520:16:55

an underperforming school are three

times higher than if they were born

0:16:550:16:58

in London.

0:16:580:16:59

Today's report asks for £300 million

of new money for the

0:16:590:17:03

north for early years and asks every

northern business to play its part

0:17:030:17:06

by mentoring the young.

0:17:060:17:14

We've got to put education

at the heart of the

0:17:140:17:16

Northern Powerhouse

and this is a call to

0:17:160:17:18

arms to say it doesn't

have

0:17:180:17:20

to be the case that

schools in the north

0:17:200:17:22

underperform schools

in the

0:17:220:17:23

south, so we've got a big plan

working across the parties with

0:17:230:17:26

businesses to bring reform,

investment and business involvement

0:17:260:17:28

into our schools.

0:17:280:17:33

How are you finding the

communications time on a Wednesday?

0:17:330:17:36

George Osborne wants businesses

to follow Barclays' lead.

0:17:360:17:38

They have more than 500

apprentices across the north.

0:17:380:17:40

They say they want northern

talent to stay here.

0:17:400:17:42

I think it was an opportunity that

I was quite surprised to find that I

0:17:420:17:45

didn't have to move away for.

0:17:450:17:47

Because I think my kind

of preconception was, you would

0:17:470:17:49

probably have to move

to have a really good career.

0:17:490:17:52

But now, you know, my

view's completely changed

0:17:520:17:54

on that now that I've found

the degree programme because you can

0:17:540:17:57

do it from anywhere.

0:17:570:17:58

The authors of the report focused

on northern employers

0:17:580:18:04

who consistently pointed to poor

skills and inadequate training.

0:18:040:18:06

They also said they

worry about the brain

0:18:060:18:11

drain of northern talent

disappearing south, and all of that

0:18:110:18:14

feeds into a gap in productivity

that's getting wider.

0:18:140:18:16

The Government says

it is stepping up after being

0:18:160:18:20

accused of neglecting the north

from the day George Osborne

0:18:200:18:23

left Downing Street.

0:18:230:18:25

One of the real unsung bits

about our Northern Powerhouse is

0:18:250:18:28

the £70 million we've

put into our Northern

0:18:280:18:36

Powerhouse school strategy,

which

0:18:370:18:38

goes all the way from

early years provision

0:18:380:18:40

and making sure that's

as

0:18:400:18:41

good as it can be to

the maths and English hubs

0:18:410:18:44

that we have set up.

0:18:440:18:45

We're going to do

some more division.

0:18:450:18:47

It's a complicated equation,

more government money plus

0:18:470:18:49

more business investment

could equal 850,000 new jobs

0:18:490:18:51

in the north by 2050.

0:18:510:18:52

But can the maths add up?

0:18:520:18:53

Nina Warhurst, BBC

News in Darlington.

0:18:530:18:59

The father of a seriously ill

20-month-old boy is in court

0:18:590:19:02

to argue that his son should

continue to receive

0:19:020:19:04

life-support treatment.

0:19:040:19:05

Tom Evans from Liverpool,

wants to take his son Alfie

0:19:050:19:10

abroad for treatment -

but doctors say continuing

0:19:100:19:12

life-support treatment is not

in the child's best interests.

0:19:120:19:14

Judith Moritz is at

the court in Liverpool.

0:19:140:19:22

She can explain a bit more about

this.

It is a terribly sad

0:19:220:19:30

situation, the court have said

today, the judge and barristers and

0:19:300:19:34

everyone here, is agreed over how

difficult this is. The situation is

0:19:340:19:39

that Alfie Evans, whose father has

just left court for the lunch break,

0:19:390:19:43

has been suffering from a brain

condition since he was born in May

0:19:430:19:48

2016. Alder Hey Hospital say that

they believe that now the life

0:19:480:19:56

support, mechanical breathing,

should be withdrawn and have made an

0:19:560:19:59

application for him to be taken to a

hospice. But Alfie Potter my parents

0:19:590:20:04

Kate and Tom fundamentally disagree.

They want instead for Alfie to be

0:20:040:20:09

taken to Rome to a hospital there

they've been in touch with and they

0:20:090:20:14

believe the hospital can give a

different kind of care that's what

0:20:140:20:17

they want to happen. It's all ended

up in court, it's down to a judge to

0:20:170:20:22

decide. They have been moments of

high emotion today because Tom

0:20:220:20:27

Evans, who is just 21, Alfie's

father, has been representing

0:20:270:20:31

himself and he broke down in tears

as he heard the hospital's barrister

0:20:310:20:36

described his son as a normal lovely

looking boy. The court adjourned for

0:20:360:20:39

a short time because of the high

emotion and when everyone came back

0:20:390:20:44

the judge, Mr Justice Hayden, said

to Mr Evans that he knew how

0:20:440:20:48

difficult this must be and that he

had noticed, in fact, people in

0:20:480:20:53

court wearing T-shirts that say

Alfie's army on them, there to

0:20:530:20:57

support Alfie and the judge said we

are all in Alfie's army and all want

0:20:570:21:01

the best ultimately for Alfie but it

will be up to the judge to decide

0:21:010:21:04

what happens.

Thank you, Judith

Moritz.

Facebook has reported a big jump

in profits despite users spending

0:21:080:21:11

significantly less time on the site.

0:21:110:21:12

It comes after the social network

announced changes designed

0:21:120:21:14

to prioritise posts from friends,

at the expense of content

0:21:140:21:17

from businesses and media companies.

0:21:170:21:19

Our business correspondent

Theo Leggett is with me.

0:21:190:21:26

Fiola, you'd better explain what the

changes are and why there has been

0:21:260:21:29

all of this change on Facebook.

When

you log onto Facebook what you see

0:21:290:21:33

is chosen for you by Facebook's

computers based on what the company

0:21:330:21:37

thinks you will find most

interesting. The change is designed

0:21:370:21:40

to encourage more interactions with

your friends and family, so, for

0:21:400:21:45

example, a photo of their cats, or a

selfie, or whatever, and so you will

0:21:450:21:49

see more of that kind of stuff and

less material published by news

0:21:490:21:53

organisations and so on, so less

news and fewer videos. The idea,

0:21:530:21:58

Facebook says, is to encourage more

meaningful social interaction

0:21:580:22:01

because that's what it says makes

people happier, and encourage less

0:22:010:22:05

of the sort of sensational

polarising news stuff we all see on

0:22:050:22:08

our feeds every day.

So, people

spending less time on it as a result

0:22:080:22:14

and get profits are still up, how

does that work?

Facebook has 1.4

0:22:140:22:18

billion users and they spend on

average 40 minutes a day on the site

0:22:180:22:21

so if they spend a couple of minutes

lest it is not a huge problem. At

0:22:210:22:25

the same time what Facebook is doing

is trying to make sure people see

0:22:250:22:28

the adverts that are relevant to

them. If you have 1.4 billion users

0:22:280:22:33

and just broadcast an advert it's

not

0:22:330:22:41

not going to necessarily get to the

people who want to see it. So it is

0:22:410:22:44

targeting more. For example, if you

look for a hotel in a particular

0:22:440:22:47

city on a website and don't book you

might find an advert for hotels in

0:22:470:22:50

that area appearing on your feet,

targeting adverts, you're more

0:22:500:22:52

likely to respond to it, advertisers

pay a premium to have the most

0:22:520:22:55

receptive people see their adverts

and therefore it will make more

0:22:550:22:57

money.

Leggett, thank you.

0:22:570:23:02

The Chief Inspector of Schools

in England has warned that religious

0:23:040:23:07

extremists are using schools

to narrow children's horizons

0:23:070:23:09

and pervert their education.

0:23:090:23:10

Speaking at a school in east London,

Amanda Spielman called on head

0:23:100:23:13

teachers to tackle people

who undermine fundamental British

0:23:130:23:15

values - critics say the educational

authorities need to engage more

0:23:150:23:17

with Muslim communities.

0:23:170:23:18

Frankie McCamley reports.

0:23:180:23:23

How finally got through it?

Since

being appointed a year ago the head

0:23:230:23:27

of Ofsted Amanda Spielman has made

tackling extremism in school is one

0:23:270:23:32

of her main objectives and today she

used her speech at the Church of

0:23:320:23:36

England conference to directly

address that issue.

One of those

0:23:360:23:38

British values is tolerance and

respect for all faiths and none and

0:23:380:23:43

we are looking... One of the things

we have to look for is signs that

0:23:430:23:49

that value is breaking down and by

being tolerant you can end up

0:23:490:23:55

importing intolerance and we have to

make sure that we help schools find

0:23:550:23:57

that balance and that we report

where we find that balance is at

0:23:570:24:02

risk.

The Ofsted chief also through

her weight behind the headteacher of

0:24:020:24:06

this east London School, which is

one of the top performing schools in

0:24:060:24:09

the country. She tried to ban girls

under the age of eight from wearing

0:24:090:24:14

the hijab to school and stop

youngsters from fasting during

0:24:140:24:18

Ramadan. However, following a big

campaign from parents and community

0:24:180:24:22

leaders, her roles were reversed.

But some don't believe schools

0:24:220:24:26

should be setting rules like this.

There is pressure for young girls

0:24:260:24:34

and it is for women alone to decide

what that is and to save this is

0:24:340:24:40

what is acceptable and what is not

acceptable.

The government believes

0:24:400:24:44

it up to individual schools to set

their own clothing policy and

0:24:440:24:48

states, if there are any allegations

of schools promoting ideologies in

0:24:480:24:52

the classroom, we will not hesitate

to act. This is clearly an issue

0:24:520:25:00

which many schools across the

country will be considering in order

0:25:000:25:03

to strike the right balance.

0:25:030:25:08

West Ham have suspended

their director of player

0:25:080:25:10

recruitment Tony Henry,

following claims that he said

0:25:100:25:11

the club wouldn't sign any

more African players.

0:25:110:25:13

In a statement, the club said

they won't tolerate any

0:25:130:25:16

type of discrimination.

0:25:160:25:22

Let's find out more from our sports

news correspondent, Richard Conway.

0:25:220:25:26

What is the alleged or appeared to

have said?

0:25:260:25:30

The Daily Mail obtained an e-mail

sent from Tony Henry to a senior

0:25:300:25:33

West Ham official and an agent and

in the e-mail it is alleged Tony

0:25:330:25:37

Henry said they didn't want to sign

any more African players. When

0:25:370:25:41

confronted about this Tony Henry

admitted that that was indeed the

0:25:410:25:43

case, they wanted to limit the

number of African players because

0:25:430:25:46

"They have a bad attitude and cause

mayhem when they are not in the

0:25:460:25:50

team." Tony Henry, it is claimed,

also suggested it was club policy

0:25:500:25:56

supported by senior management, but

West Ham have said they do not

0:25:560:26:00

tolerate any kind of discrimination,

they have suspended him today, and

0:26:000:26:03

save they have acted swiftly due to

the serious nature of the claims.

0:26:030:26:08

The FA themselves are investigating,

we understand the PFA, the players

0:26:080:26:12

union, say they are shocked by the

views and sake there is no place for

0:26:120:26:15

them in football and there has also

been a reaction from some of the

0:26:150:26:18

West Ham players, Cheikh Kouyate,

one of their players taking the

0:26:180:26:21

social media this morning, posting a

picture of himself saying "African

0:26:210:26:27

and private, proud. "

0:26:270:26:34

and private, proud. " -- African and

proud.

Thank you, Richard Conway.

0:26:340:26:39

The end of January is a milestone

for all those people who pledged

0:26:390:26:42

to go the whole month

without drinking alcohol.

0:26:420:26:44

Organisers of the Dry January

campaign say thousands of people

0:26:440:26:46

signed up to take part.

0:26:460:26:48

Another campaign - Veganuary -

has also reported thousands pledging

0:26:480:26:50

to avoid eating animal-derived

products for the month,

0:26:500:26:52

with more people questioning

where their food comes

0:26:520:26:54

from and the ethics

behind its production.

0:26:540:26:56

Danny Savage has been to meet people

taking part in Leeds.

0:26:560:26:58

A vegan cafe in Leeds.

0:26:580:26:59

There's no meat or dairy

products in any of the

0:26:590:27:02

food here, and for the last month

non-vegans have been encouraged to

0:27:020:27:05

give it a go.

0:27:050:27:06

And those behind Veganuary say

it's a lot easier today

0:27:060:27:08

than it was a few years ago.

0:27:080:27:10

When I went vegan seven

years ago there was

0:27:100:27:15

none of the chain restaurants doing

vegan options - now nearly all of

0:27:150:27:18

them either have vegan options

on the menu or they've got

0:27:180:27:21

a vegan menu itself.

0:27:210:27:22

A lot of the supermarkets now,

the range of products that are

0:27:220:27:25

available to people going vegan

is a lot better than it was six

0:27:250:27:28

or seven years ago, so it's moving

in the right direction.

0:27:280:27:30

And what's the one thing you miss?

Cheese.

0:27:300:27:32

That's your...

Yeah.

0:27:320:27:33

Cheese.

0:27:330:27:34

Tabatha went vegan for

January, despite some

0:27:340:27:38

cravings she's stuck

to it and will continue.

0:27:380:27:40

The thing that got me in the first

place was actually the

0:27:400:27:44

environmental impact of veganism

and vegetarianism, but yeah,

0:27:440:27:47

health, ethics, there's

just so many reasons,

0:27:470:27:49

I think, to go vegan.

0:27:490:27:50

And it's going OK?

Yeah.

0:27:500:27:52

You haven't struggled?

No, I haven't actually struggled.

0:27:520:27:53

You've completed it?

0:27:530:27:54

You haven't fallen off

the wagon as such?

0:27:540:27:56

No, I haven't.

0:27:560:27:57

At a nearby bakery,

Ellie has built up a

0:27:570:28:00

business making vegan cakes.

0:28:000:28:01

Production has grown

rapidly because veganism

0:28:010:28:02

is no longer a niche,

it's becoming mainstream.

0:28:020:28:05

It's been crazy busy.

0:28:050:28:08

Lots of cafes have started

doing it, they want to

0:28:080:28:11

accommodate everybody so they're

wanting to offer a really good range

0:28:110:28:17

and just the general public as well,

you'll notice, if you go to a market

0:28:170:28:25

or even just going to the big vegan

fairs there's much, much

0:28:280:28:31

bigger crowds.

0:28:310:28:32

And the growth in trade is reflected

by a growing change in

0:28:320:28:35

people's attitudes.

0:28:350:28:36

Veganism as a lifestyle choice has

definitely boomed in the last

0:28:360:28:39

few years.

0:28:390:28:40

But for a lot of other people

they're choosing a more flexible

0:28:400:28:43

approach, even part-time.

0:28:430:28:44

Perhaps reducing their

meat intake to once

0:28:440:28:47

or twice a week, taking a more

vegetable-centric approach the other

0:28:470:28:49

days, and for these people Veganuary

is a brilliant introduction and a

0:28:490:28:52

way to test the waters.

0:28:520:28:54

The organisers say

about 78,000 people

0:28:540:28:55

in the UK tried going

vegan in January.

0:28:550:28:57

They think even more

will have a go next year.

Witchell is in Oslo.

0:29:240:29:26

What's on the agenda?

Welcome to a

very snowbound Oslo and you'd think

0:29:260:29:32

they would be used to the sort of

thing here and indeed they are but

0:29:320:29:35

rather more snow in recent days than

is customary which caused a few

0:29:350:29:37

complications this morning but the

0:29:370:29:43

continues travelling this morning

from Stockholm in Sweden to Oslo,

greeted Oslo airport by the Crown

0:29:460:29:53

come on now to the royal palace in

the centre of Oslo where they have

met King Harald and having lunch

with him, quite a family occasion,

0:29:580:30:01

they are distantly related, close

ties between the Norwegian and

0:30:010:30:05

British royal family is. What will

they be talking about? As royals

0:30:050:30:08

they don't do politics but there is

a strong political context to do

0:30:080:30:13

with anything concerning Britain and

Europe. We shouldn't forget that all

0:30:130:30:18

of these visits are commissioned by

the British Foreign Office, lots of

0:30:180:30:21

visits by the British royal family

to European countries in recent

0:30:210:30:25

years. The purpose is to emphasise

the depth and breadth of the

0:30:250:30:28

relationship with Britain, William

talking about that in Stockholm last

0:30:280:30:32

night. Norway, of course,

interesting, not part of the EU but

0:30:320:30:35

part of the Single Market, a very

rich country, one of the richest per

0:30:350:30:39

capita in Europe, indeed in the

world, so a country with which the

0:30:390:30:43

United Kingdom will want to have

even stronger links in the future.

0:30:430:30:48

Interesting, thanks very much,

Nicholas Witchell, in a very chilly

0:30:480:30:53

looking Oslo. Let's look at our own

weather prospects.

0:30:530:30:58

I thought we'd

0:30:580:30:58

weather prospects.

I thought we'd start with a quick

0:30:580:31:00

look at yesterday's super blue moon,

this picture taken from the Richmond

0:31:000:31:02

area looking over

0:31:020:31:08

area looking over the London city

skyline. Today we are going to keep

0:31:080:31:10

largely clear skies, for a number of

people some sunshine but showers

0:31:100:31:13

will continue to affect northern and

western areas and we have a clump of

0:31:130:31:17

showers working down from the North

York Moors where they could be sleet

0:31:170:31:21

and a bit of snow over the tops, the

club of showers working at East

0:31:210:31:24

Anglia through the afternoon. It

feels colder this afternoon on

0:31:240:31:28

account of the brisk and gusty north

and north westerly winds, continuing

0:31:280:31:31

to blow around coastal counties over

night to night. We could see one or

0:31:310:31:36

two icy patches developing overnight

as the road temperatures dipped

0:31:360:31:39

below freezing. But in the towns and

cities we are looking at lows of

0:31:390:31:45

2-4d. Tomorrow the winds will be a

bit lighter but there will be plenty

0:31:450:31:49

of sunshine around so it went the US

chilly. They will be showers in the

0:31:490:31:53

morning through the afternoon across

eastern Scotland and eastern areas

0:31:530:31:56

of England but they will thin out as

the day goes by and one or two

0:31:560:32:00

showers for parts of western Wales

and Cornwall. Otherwise it is

0:32:000:32:03

largely dry, temperatures between

five and 8 degrees. Looking ahead to

0:32:030:32:08

the weekend weather prospects, we

have a band of rain, perhaps some

0:32:080:32:12

snow to contend with on Saturday,

often cloudy this weekend, and there

0:32:120:32:15

will be some cold winds developing,

particularly across south-east

0:32:150:32:18

England. Here is the weather charts

for Saturday, this band of rain will

0:32:180:32:23

become slow-moving on Saturday and

will turn to snow across the high

0:32:230:32:26

ground in Scotland, across Wales and

the Pennines too. It's possible some

0:32:260:32:31

of the rain will turn to sleet, or a

bit of snow developing through the

0:32:310:32:35

afternoon, perhaps lower down across

parts of the Midlands and southern

0:32:350:32:39

England, although I think amounts of

snow will be very small if that

0:32:390:32:42

happened. By Sunday we have quite a

bit of dry weather, but a lot of

0:32:420:32:46

cloud for England and Wales, the

best of the Sunshine for the north

0:32:460:32:49

and west for Scotland and Northern

Ireland. The wind is picking up in

0:32:490:32:52

the south-east will make it feel

pretty chilly.

0:32:520:33:00

pretty chilly. Now I'm going to skip

ahead to development is through

0:33:000:33:02

Monday night into Tuesday because a

band of snow could be on its way

0:33:020:33:05

moving across the country, the main

uncertainty is how far eastwards it

0:33:050:33:07

will push across but it could bring

a significant spell of snow, Monday

0:33:070:33:10

night into Tuesday, and it's

something we are watching very

0:33:100:33:12

carefully. Jane.

0:33:120:33:13

something we are watching very

carefully. Jane. Thank you very

0:33:130:33:15

much, Chris.

0:33:150:33:17

A reminder of our main

story this lunchtime:

0:33:170:33:19

Theresa May says Britain and China

are enjoying a golden era

0:33:190:33:22

in their relationship

on a visit to Beijing.
