A gunman is in police custody

in Florida after killing at least 17

0:00:060:00:09

students and teachers

at his former school.

0:00:090:00:14

Panic as pupils tried

to flee to safety -

0:00:140:00:17

some in the building hid under

desks, and barricaded doors

0:00:170:00:19

as loud shots rang out.

0:00:190:00:24

Then all of a sudden we hear one

of our student Government teachers

0:00:240:00:28

say "Run as fast as you can",

and we hear a gunshot.

0:00:280:00:30

The gunman, 19-year-old

Nikolas Cruz, is charged with 17

0:00:300:00:33

counts of premeditated murder.

0:00:330:00:37

You come to the conclusion that this

is absolutely pure evil.

0:00:370:00:44

We'll have all the latest -

and asking what it will take for any

0:00:440:00:47

change in America's gun laws.

0:00:470:00:53

Cyril Ramaphosa has been elected

President of South Africa -

0:00:530:00:56

he replaces Jacob Zuma,

who resigned last night.

0:00:560:01:03

A rip-off - MPs are scathing

about financial advisers mis-selling

0:01:070:01:10

new products to members

of British Steel's pension scheme.

0:01:100:01:12

It it may highlight the fact

for other pension schemes

0:01:120:01:14

in the future, and this may not

happen on this scale again,

0:01:140:01:17

hopefully it doesn't,

but that's little comfort to people

0:01:170:01:19

like myself, you know.

0:01:190:01:25

And a strong start for Dom Parsons

in the skeleton.

0:01:250:01:28

And a strong start for

Dom Parsons in the skeleton.

0:01:280:01:31

And coming up in the

sport on BBC News.

0:01:310:01:33

All the latest from Pyeongchang,

as Britian's curlers

0:01:330:01:36

continue their campaign on the ice

hoping for more

0:01:360:01:37

round robin victories.

0:01:370:01:45

Good afternoon and welcome

to the BBC News at One.

0:02:000:02:03

Police in Florida have charged a

19-year-old man with 17 counts

0:02:030:02:05

of premeditated murder,

after a mass shooting

0:02:050:02:08

at a high school.

0:02:080:02:12

The gunman, Nikolas Cruz,

was a former pupil at the school

0:02:120:02:14

who'd been expelled.

0:02:140:02:15

Witnesses said Cruz set off a fire

alarm, and shot at people

0:02:150:02:18

as they left the building.

0:02:180:02:20

It was the eighteenth

shooting incident in a US

0:02:200:02:23

school so far this year.

0:02:230:02:24

A warning - you may find some

of the images in Neda Tawfik's

0:02:240:02:27

report distressing.

0:02:270:02:34

Running for their lives these panics

students fled as fast as they could.

0:02:340:02:38

Others sheltered inside. These were

the terrifying sounds from one of

0:02:380:02:45

America's classroom, the gunman

struck moments at the end of the

0:02:450:02:48

school day. Police have identified

him as Nicholas Cruz, he arrived

0:02:480:02:54

heavily armed with a semi automatic

rifle and ammunition.

0:02:540:03:00

It is now understood that this was a

well planned plot to maximise the

0:03:000:03:04

loss of life. The shooter set off

the fire alarm to draw the children

0:03:040:03:10

out of their classrooms. As the

attack unfolded children hid in

0:03:100:03:16

cupboards and barricaded doors

He

went up a down the hallway, he shot

0:03:160:03:22

through my door and broke the

window.

As soon as the fire alarm

0:03:220:03:28

got pulled I heard five pops.

We

hear one of our student Government

0:03:280:03:33

teachers say, run as fast as you

can, we hear a gunshot.

0:03:330:03:38

17 children and teachers were

killed. More than a dozen were

0:03:380:03:41

injured and are being treated in

local hospitals.

0:03:410:03:47

We are furious, how cold this happen

in this country, in this state? This

0:03:470:03:51

is a state that is focussed on

keeping our children safe, you come

0:03:510:03:56

to to conclusion this is just

absolutely pure evil.

0:03:560:04:02

This state is not tolerate violence,

we have law enforcement that will

0:04:020:04:06

show up to defend our safety.

Cruz tried to escape by blending in

0:04:060:04:12

with students fleeing the school.

But he was later arrested without

0:04:120:04:16

incident in a nearby town.

Authorities are beginning to piece

0:04:160:04:21

together his possible motives. He

was expelled last year and students

0:04:210:04:26

described him as troubled.

He carried gun, he showed me them. I

0:04:260:04:32

saw what guns he has, he showed me

personally, the kids wouldn't pick

0:04:320:04:39

on him because they were scared.

This is one of the safest cities in

0:04:390:04:43

the country but that didn't stop it

from becoming the 18th school

0:04:430:04:46

shooting this year, the question

that seemingly everyone in the

0:04:460:04:50

nation is now asking, is whether

this is the new normal? In

0:04:500:04:55

Washington, there was them passioned

plea on the floor of the Senate from

0:04:550:05:00

a Senator whose state includes the

Sane hook elementary school where

0:05:000:05:05

childrens were shot and killed just

over five years ago.

This happens

0:05:050:05:10

nowhere else, other than in the

United States. This epidemic of mass

0:05:100:05:20

slaughter, this scourge of school

shooting after school shooting. It

0:05:200:05:26

only happens here not because of

coincidence, not because of bad

0:05:260:05:33

luck, but as a consequence of our

inaction. We are responsible.

0:05:330:05:41

Tales of heroism are emerging from

the tragedy. Tragedy. A football

0:05:410:05:45

coach is said to have shielded

children as the gunman fired.

0:05:450:05:49

He did not survive his injuries.

With each new shooting there is the

0:05:490:05:58

inevitable debate on gun ownership

in America. Yet this country is more

0:05:580:06:02

divided than ever on how to stop

this problem.

0:06:020:06:07

this problem.

0:06:070:06:09

David Willis is in Washington.

0:06:090:06:12

Let us consider the weapon used by

this former pupil of the school, a

0:06:120:06:18

semi automatic gun.

Absolutely, the

weapon in question, very much the

0:06:180:06:24

weapon of choice for mass shootings

here in the United States. And this

0:06:240:06:31

weapon, the AR15, easier to obtain

in Florida, a state with very

0:06:310:06:35

liberal gun control laws, than a

handgun, but, as much as the weapon

0:06:350:06:41

itself, it seems that the gunman's

knowledge of the lie of land as a

0:06:410:06:45

former pupil at this school, that

seems to have been crucial as well

0:06:450:06:49

here, not only did he know where to

find his victim, he knew how the

0:06:490:06:55

fire alarm system operated, and it

has been reported that he actually

0:06:550:07:00

activated it in order to lure pupils

out and into his path, and of course

0:07:000:07:04

he knew as well, how to blend into

the crowd, and make his escape.

0:07:040:07:10

And David, is there any sign that

this latest incident. The 18th

0:07:100:07:14

shooting in a school this year, is

this any sign that is going to

0:07:140:07:18

change the debate on gun laws?

Well,

one indication of that perhaps lies

0:07:180:07:25

with President Trump's tweet in the

last hour, and he said so many signs

0:07:250:07:30

that the Florida shooter was

mentally disturbed, everyone

0:07:300:07:34

expelled from school for bad

behaviour, neighbours and classmates

0:07:340:07:37

knew he was a big problem, must

always report incidents to the

0:07:370:07:43

authorities again and again, no

mention of the need for tougher gun

0:07:430:07:48

control laws here, it is interesting

to note that President Trump

0:07:480:07:52

received the early endorsement in

his run for President from the

0:07:520:07:55

national rifle association, which is

of course one of the most powerful

0:07:550:07:59

lobby gruers here in the US. Last

night just after news of this

0:07:590:08:07

shooting started to emerge, one

Congressman said simply America is

0:08:070:08:12

in thrall to the NRA as he put it.

Don't expect any changes in this

0:08:120:08:17

country's gun control laws any time

soon.

0:08:170:08:22

David, many thanks.

0:08:220:08:23

David, many thanks.

0:08:230:08:25

Cyril Ramaphosa has been elected

President of South Africa.

0:08:250:08:27

This is the moment in the last hour

when the former anti-apartheid

0:08:270:08:30

activist was confirmed in the role.

0:08:300:08:31

Mr Ramaphosa replaces Jacob Zuma,

who resigned last night

0:08:310:08:33

following pressure from his party

over numerous

0:08:330:08:35

corruption allegations.

0:08:350:08:43

I declare Cyril Ramaphosa is dually

elected President of the republic of

0:08:430:08:47

South Africa.

0:08:470:08:50

Mr Ramaphosa replaces Jacob Zuma,

who resigned last night

0:08:500:08:52

following pressure from his party

over numerous

0:08:520:08:54

corruption allegations.

0:08:540:08:55

Our correspondent Pumza Filhani

is in Johannesburg.

0:08:550:09:01

Cyril Ramaphosa elected unopposed.

Describe the atmosphere as South

0:09:010:09:05

Africa entering this new phase.

I

think if will is one word for it it

0:09:050:09:12

would be expectancy, there is a

sense something good is about to

0:09:120:09:16

happen in South Africa again. Listen

to opposition parties congratulating

0:09:160:09:20

the President there on his election,

they congratulated him but also

0:09:200:09:23

reminded him on the side of that

that while he does have their

0:09:230:09:27

support, this isn't a blank cheque.

There is much work to be done, but a

0:09:270:09:31

big sense that the right man is in

the right seat, finally, and that he

0:09:310:09:35

is somebody that will be able to

drive growth here in South Africa,

0:09:350:09:39

that will be able to return jobs in

South Africa, that will also just be

0:09:390:09:47

able to put finally stomp out

corruption or create a culture where

0:09:470:09:52

it seems corruption will be dealt

with.

OK. Thank you very much

0:09:520:09:56

indeed.

0:09:560:10:01

Thank you very much indeed.

0:10:010:10:03

The jury has returned more verdicts

in the trial of the former

0:10:030:10:06

football coach Barry Bennell

at Liverpool Crown Court.

0:10:060:10:08

Danny Savage is there.

0:10:080:10:12

Danny, tell us what has happened.

Yes, in the last few minutes many

0:10:120:10:20

case may sound familiar, the juries

have been going through the

0:10:200:10:25

deliberations in this trial, they

came back with 36 verdicts of guilty

0:10:250:10:28

a couple of days ago, they were sent

away by the judge to consider a

0:10:280:10:31

majority verdict on the rest of the

challenges, seven of them, and this

0:10:310:10:36

morning and this afternoon, within

the last few minutes they have come

0:10:360:10:39

back with the rest, saying that

Barry Bennell is guilty of those

0:10:390:10:44

crimes, this trial centred on 11 men

who were boys backs in the late 70s

0:10:440:10:50

and 80 when they were abused by

Barry Bennell and this case has

0:10:500:10:55

finished with the jury returning all

the verdicts.

0:10:550:11:01

A charismatic and talented coach who

held the keys to the footballing

0:11:010:11:04

world.

0:11:040:11:08

Barry Bennell surrounded himself

with young boys.

He was allowed

0:11:140:11:20

unfettered access to a large number

of boys who we was coaching, they

0:11:200:11:25

were staying with him at weekends,

over school holiday, going abroad on

0:11:250:11:31

football coaching trips.

These were

little boys who wanted to play

0:11:310:11:36

football and when you hear them

giving their evidence at court, they

0:11:360:11:40

are little boys again and they are

waiting for him to say sorry.

0:11:400:11:46

Burnell has been convicted of child

sex offences when in November 2016

0:11:460:11:50

fresh allegations emerged.

In interviews on this programme two

0:11:500:11:55

more former footballer...

This

programme eventually ended up as

0:11:550:11:59

evidence in court.

By youth coach

Barry Bennell.

0:11:590:12:04

As more claims were made, Ben Nel

moved out of his home, was found

0:12:040:12:10

unconscious as a hotel and then

detailed and charged by police. He

0:12:100:12:17

was interviewed 30 time, on one

occasion described how the sickening

0:12:170:12:21

abuse would begin.

0:12:210:12:28

He has presented throughout the

interviews as somebody that is

0:12:460:12:49

completely different to the

suffering he has caused and not once

0:12:490:12:52

has he shown one bit of empathy or

remorse to these victims and to what

0:12:520:12:56

he has put them through.

What sort

of man is he?

Cruel. And selfish.

0:12:560:13:02

The only person that matters to

Barry Bennell is Barry Bennell.

0:13:020:13:07

With dreams of becoming a

professional footballer, and

0:13:070:13:11

promises of the newest and best kit,

Barry Bennell lured his victims to

0:13:110:13:17

his homes here in Derbyshire and

elsewhere. Described as an alland's

0:13:170:13:24

cave for young boys, they provided a

haven for the predatory and

0:13:240:13:29

devolution views Barry Bennell to

abuse. He never told his side of the

0:13:290:13:32

story in court. Neither did he face

his accusers, appearing by videolink

0:13:320:13:37

because of poor health. He watched

on, smirking according to one of the

0:13:370:13:42

victim, as they recounted their

horrific story, of what he did to

0:13:420:13:46

them. Another said he knew of four

players coached by Barry Bennell who

0:13:460:13:51

had taken their own live, including

the former Wales manager Gary Speed.

0:13:510:13:56

Barry Bennell's lawyer questioned

the accusers' motives, suggesting

0:13:560:14:01

they were out for financial gain but

now more than 20 years after his

0:14:010:14:06

first conviction Barry Bennell has

been found guilty for a fourth time

0:14:060:14:10

of abusing young boys. A serial

child abuser who exploited a system,

0:14:100:14:17

his position, and young footballers'

dreams.

0:14:170:14:25

This trial heard that Barry Bennell

was a child molest the on an

0:14:250:14:29

industrial scale. The BBC

understands as well as the victims

0:14:290:14:32

in this trial, that this case

centred on a total of 98 people have

0:14:320:14:37

now come forward, to say they were

abused by Barry Bennell, his victims

0:14:370:14:42

were mainly young footballers in the

youth set up of Manchester City and

0:14:420:14:46

Crewe as this trial heard. What

about the wider implications for

0:14:460:14:49

football and sport? Sport? From

althose events years ago, our Sports

0:14:490:14:54

Editor has been looking at the

background to this.

0:14:540:15:01

Barry Bennell worked with some of

the top clubs in the north-west of

0:15:050:15:10

England, identifying and developing

the most promising young players.

We

0:15:100:15:14

do a lot of talking to them, showing

them skills and explaining the game.

0:15:140:15:18

There is more to it than just coming

here for an hour a week. We give

0:15:180:15:24

them homework.

But Barry Bennell was

also a serial paedophile. Gary Cliff

0:15:240:15:30

was one victim, abused by his former

coach when playing for junior teams

0:15:300:15:35

linked to Manchester city.

Every

school holiday, Christmas time, and

0:15:350:15:39

this is over a four to five year

period. He ruined our lives,

0:15:390:15:44

numerous lives. I know because I was

there. Hundreds of boys lives. They

0:15:440:15:49

are mothers -- he should never see

the light of day again.

Manchester

0:15:490:15:56

City say they are investigating but

Gary co clip insists some people at

0:15:560:16:01

the club would have known about the

behaviour.

They knew who he was but

0:16:010:16:05

they allowed it to continue.

Barry

Bennell's relationship with

0:16:050:16:11

Manchester City remains unclear but

we've obtained what is believed to

0:16:110:16:15

be a business card the coach handed

to young players and their parents,

0:16:150:16:19

describing himself as a club

representative. If this is what it

0:16:190:16:23

appears to be, it may show how

Manchester City -- Barry Bannan used

0:16:230:16:27

Manchester City's name. Simon

Cousins was a board director at

0:16:270:16:33

Manchester city at the time. Could

more have been done, do you think,

0:16:330:16:37

to pay more attention to the young

players and how they were being

0:16:370:16:43

treated?

With hindsight, the answer

is yes, but... Did anybody read it

0:16:430:16:50

at the time? Or know about it? No.

Simon Cousins died last year before

0:16:500:16:59

Manchester City spoke to him as part

of their enquiry. Barry Bennell was

0:16:590:17:02

most closely linked with Corel

Alexander Hamilton Smith was the

0:17:020:17:08

managing director at the time and he

says that, after being made aware of

0:17:080:17:13

concerns and rumours about Barry

Bennell's behaviour, he raised the

0:17:130:17:16

issue in a board meeting but the

coach was allowed to stay for three

0:17:160:17:19

more years.

I find it difficult to

believe that, with all of the banter

0:17:190:17:25

that was going on, all that was

happening, the special board meeting

0:17:250:17:29

we have, and they are still saying

they didn't know something was going

0:17:290:17:33

on. I went to the FA to talk to them

about my concerns and ended up

0:17:330:17:39

getting a dear John letter. Which

said, they'd investigated and found

0:17:390:17:47

nothing to be answered. Everybody

involved could have done, and should

0:17:470:17:55

have done a lot more.

The then

manager, Dario Roddy, was one of

0:17:550:18:02

those who Smith says was aware of

general concerns about Barry

0:18:020:18:06

Bennell's behaviour. Now director of

football, he denies having had any

0:18:060:18:10

knowledge of Barry Bennell's crimes,

but he was suspended by the FA in

0:18:100:18:14

2016. Crewe also say they were

unaware of Barry Bennell's behaviour

0:18:140:18:21

before his first conviction in 1994,

when he was jailed in Florida. It

0:18:210:18:25

may seem hard to believe now but, in

the 1990s when Barry Bennell was

0:18:250:18:30

convicted, the story seems to have

made little impression, either on

0:18:300:18:34

football or wider society, but in

late 2016 another former victim at

0:18:340:18:40

Crewe started arguably the biggest

crisis the British game has ever

0:18:400:18:44

seen. First, former Crewe player

Andy Woodward spoke out about the

0:18:440:18:48

abuse he suffered at the hands of

Barry Bennell, insisting he wasn't

0:18:480:18:52

alone.

It's huge. The ripple effect

through football, I hope people are

0:18:520:18:59

listening.

Former international Paul

Stewart revealed the extent of the

0:18:590:19:03

abuse he'd been subject to buy a

different paedophile

horrific.

How

0:19:030:19:09

long did it go on for?

For years,

almost every day.

The FA chairman

0:19:090:19:17

has launched a review.

We believe we

are doing everything we can to step

0:19:170:19:22

up to the mark.

Police forces

investigating, the trust was set up

0:19:220:19:28

for the victims, 285 potential

suspects have been identified and

0:19:280:19:33

331 clubs now involved. The

barrister who prosecuted Barry

0:19:330:19:37

Bennell in 1998 told me that

football must share the blame.

Ryan

0:19:370:19:40

Sutton that at the time there was

institutional failure -- I am

0:19:400:19:45

certain that at the time there was

institutional failure and I am very

0:19:450:19:49

disappointed that it appears, as a

result of the validity of that case,

0:19:490:19:53

other boys had been abused because

this danger was not drawn to the

0:19:530:19:58

attention of the public. -- as a

result of wider publicity of that

0:19:580:20:02

case.

The youth football system now

seems a lot safer than then, but

0:20:020:20:08

years on, the game's most notorious

paedophile continues to haunt the

0:20:080:20:12

sport. Now that this trial has

finished, it moves on to sentencing,

0:20:120:20:19

and we understand that Barry Bennell

will be sentenced here at Liverpool

0:20:190:20:22

Crown Court at midday on Monday.

He's appeared throughout this trial

0:20:220:20:29

on video link, but we also

understand he will be brought here

0:20:290:20:32

in person to hear his sentence. That

will be the next stage, after the

0:20:320:20:35

verdict returned today. We will no

doubt have more reaction throughout

0:20:350:20:41

the afternoon on BBC News.

0:20:410:20:44

Our top story this lunchtime:

0:20:440:20:48

A gunman is in police custody

in Florida after killing at least 17

0:20:480:20:51

students and teachers

at his former school.

0:20:510:20:56

And still to come -

Arsenal fly to the Arctic to take

0:20:560:20:59

on the only English manager

in Europe's elite competitions.

0:20:590:21:04

Coming up in sport:

0:21:040:21:05

We'll bring you all the gold

medals won so far today

0:21:050:21:08

at the Winter Olympics,

including the oldest man to take

0:21:080:21:10

an alpine skiing title.

0:21:100:21:13

Members of British Steel's pension

scheme were the victims of a "major

0:21:240:21:27

mis-selling scandal",

according to MPs.

0:21:270:21:30

The Work and Pensions Committee say

the scheme's members were targeted

0:21:300:21:32

by "vulture" financial advisers,

who encouraged them to transfer

0:21:320:21:35

their savings to "unsuitable funds".

0:21:350:21:38

It happened when the pension fund

was hived off in order

0:21:380:21:41

to keep the UK company,

owned by the Indian

0:21:410:21:44

firm Tata, afloat.

0:21:440:21:46

Sian Lloyd reports.

0:21:460:21:49

Last year, members of

the old British Steel Pension Scheme

0:21:490:21:52

faced a big decision

about their retirement savings,

0:21:520:21:53

after Tata which had taken over

the liabilities said

0:21:530:21:55

it was no longer viable.

0:21:550:21:57

Workers could choose to transfer

their benefit out of the scheme.

0:21:570:22:01

A report by a committee

of MPs said some of those

0:22:010:22:03

who did were exploited,

shamelessly bamboozled

0:22:030:22:07

by dubious financial advisers.

0:22:070:22:10

There have been people who probably

have been fleeced of the most

0:22:100:22:14

valuable asset they will have ever

had, which has been built up as part

0:22:140:22:19

of their pension scheme,

for which the financial vultures

0:22:190:22:27

have been after and,

in too many cases, been successful

0:22:310:22:36

in getting their claws on.

0:22:360:22:37

We uncovered the case

of Richard Bevan, who had

0:22:370:22:39

transferred his savings

into a private scheme.

0:22:390:22:41

He believes the financial advice

he was given was unsuitable,

0:22:410:22:43

which resulted in him losing

out on £200,000.

0:22:430:22:45

We passed evidence of his complaint

to the Financial Conduct Authority,

0:22:450:22:49

which regulates the industry.

0:22:490:22:51

It is criticised in the report

for not acting quickly enough.

0:22:510:22:55

Richard welcomes the scrutiny

by MPs, but says it

0:22:550:22:58

is too late for him.

0:22:580:23:03

The parliamentary report is spot on,

but where that leaves people

0:23:030:23:06

like myself, I need to know.

0:23:060:23:12

--

I really don't know.

0:23:130:23:14

It may highlight the fact for other

pension schemes in the future,

0:23:140:23:17

and this may not happen

on this scale again.

0:23:170:23:19

Hopefully, it doesn't.

0:23:190:23:20

But, that is little comfort

to people like myself, you know.

0:23:200:23:23

What happened to still

workers has been described

0:23:230:23:25

as a mis-selling scandal.

0:23:250:23:26

The report makes recommendations

to show that similar

0:23:260:23:28

mistakes are not repeated.

0:23:280:23:32

Including a ban on contingent fees,

where financial advisers only

0:23:320:23:34

get paid if the client

transfers their pension.

0:23:340:23:36

The Financial Conduct Authority

is saying it is reviewing its rules

0:23:360:23:40

on pension transfers,

as experts say the case should

0:23:400:23:44

be taken as a wake-up

call to the industry.

0:23:440:23:47

This is not uncommon,

and we have seen BHS,

0:23:470:23:51

and Carillion are similar examples

of this, so the individual details

0:23:510:23:53

will vary, but these

situations will arise again,

0:23:530:23:56

so it is important that lessons

are learned from this case.

0:23:560:24:00

Pension freedom reforms have led

to a boom in similar

0:24:000:24:03

transfers over recent years.

0:24:030:24:05

This report highlights that workers

like Richard need more protection.

0:24:050:24:12

Team GB could be set

to win its first medal of the 2018

0:24:150:24:18

Winter Olympics after Dom Parsons

put himself in contention

0:24:180:24:21

in the men's skeleton competition.

0:24:210:24:22

The 30-year-old is in fourth place

at the halfway stage -

0:24:220:24:24

ahead of the final runs tomorrow.

0:24:240:24:26

In the curling, Britain's men

earned their second win with a tense

0:24:260:24:30

victory over Japan -

while the women's team

0:24:300:24:32

lost their second match.

0:24:320:24:39

Look closely while everyone else is

at the second skin on the skeleton.

0:24:400:24:45

The British speed suits are under

scrutiny and, whether they give an

0:24:450:24:49

advantage or not, it's a good fit on

Dom Parsons. At the halfway mark he

0:24:490:24:54

is within touching distance of a

podium after two impressive

0:24:540:24:59

performances in Pyeongchang.

I hope

I can sleep tonight! The last four

0:24:590:25:03

years has been aiming for this one

most and -- moment, so I've got to

0:25:030:25:09

make the worst of it.

He'd do well

to catch this South Korean, his

0:25:090:25:15

effort seeing him lead on a track

which looks tailor-made for the

0:25:150:25:19

Koreans. The show 's piece on the

slopes, the men's downhill, the

0:25:190:25:23

winter equivalent of the 100 metres

final, although nothing. Aksel Lund

0:25:230:25:28

Svindal had nothing to show from

Sochi, but he takes a gold medal.

0:25:280:25:33

Magnificent, the Vikings are

celebrating.

Mikaela Shiffrin will

0:25:330:25:40

not be satisfied just yet. She

delivered in the giant slalom, a

0:25:400:25:44

second Olympic gold at just 22.

Favourite for the win missed her

0:25:440:25:49

slot, and Britain's Alex Tilley let

her Olympic debut slip by. Crashes

0:25:490:25:57

are common in the snowboard cross.

Wacky races on snow. Defending

0:25:570:26:04

champion Pierre Vaultier avoided the

ghastly antics behind him, so nobody

0:26:040:26:07

could catch him. -- Dass Diddley. No

less tensely curling, which has been

0:26:070:26:16

attracting the most unlikely fans,

including American actor Mr T, who

0:26:160:26:21

has been providing his own

commentary on social media. He might

0:26:210:26:25

have enjoyed the performance from

the British men as their campaign

0:26:250:26:29

continued with a narrow win over

Japan. The women suffered their

0:26:290:26:33

first defeat in Pyeongchang, edged

out by the USA, and the round robin

0:26:330:26:37

stages are not getting easier, as

they go in search of victory over

0:26:370:26:40

China.

0:26:400:26:42

The consumption of what's

being called ultra-processed foods

0:26:420:26:44

could be linked to an increased risk

of cancer, according

0:26:440:26:46

to new research.

0:26:460:26:54

Avoiding highly processed foods is a

tough task for most families,

0:26:550:27:01

including the Saxtons from

Doncaster.

I think it's very

0:27:010:27:05

difficult for a busy family on a

typical week not to eat anything

0:27:050:27:10

that's in front of us.

The serial,

definitely, sort of thing, and I

0:27:100:27:15

understand bread is made, but you

wouldn't understand its

0:27:150:27:18

ultra-processed. They were the two

surprising things for me.

Most of us

0:27:180:27:25

know that highly processed foods

like chocolate, cakes and pizza need

0:27:250:27:29

to be eaten in moderation. And now a

new study has revealed just how

0:27:290:27:33

risky they can be. It followed

105,000 French people over five

0:27:330:27:37

years. And it found that, by

increasing the amount of

0:27:370:27:44

ultra-processed food by 10% in their

diet, there was a 12% rise in the

0:27:440:27:49

risk of cancer. What we eat is

already known to affect our chances

0:27:490:27:54

of getting cancer, but researchers

say more work is needed to find out

0:27:540:27:58

why there is a greater risk with

highly processed foods.

If we get

0:27:580:28:03

too many ultra-processed foods, we

pile on the pounds, and although the

0:28:030:28:10

study didn't look closely at weight,

we know are links to cancer, so it's

0:28:100:28:15

a warning sign to have a healthy

diet and be aware of the links

0:28:150:28:18

between diet and cancer.

The family

are split about how easy it will be

0:28:180:28:24

to change their eating patterns.

I

still think we will end up eating

0:28:240:28:28

breakfast cereal and bread, because

in terms of everyday for breakfast,

0:28:280:28:33

we have smoothies and fruit, but

every single day, I think we'd

0:28:330:28:38

struggle to completely wipe out the

breakfast cereal and bread.

If I'm

0:28:380:28:45

having a snack I might have

something healthier, like an apple

0:28:450:28:48

or something, instead of having a

chocolate roll.

There are many

0:28:480:28:55

different ultra-processed foods, but

it's clear that snacks like these,

0:28:550:28:58

tempting as they may be, too many of

them can be bad for us. But the new

0:28:580:29:04

study doesn't mean that all highly

processed foods are linked to

0:29:040:29:08

cancer. It simply offers insights

rather than concrete proof.

0:29:080:29:15

You may never have heard

of the Swedish team Ostersund,

0:29:150:29:18

but tonight is their moment

in the spotlight, as they take

0:29:180:29:20

on Arsenal in the Europa League.

0:29:200:29:22

The team, whose home town

is in the Arctic Circle,

0:29:220:29:25

has to contend with training under

ten feet of snow.

0:29:250:29:27

It's led by an English manager -

Graham Potter - whose only previous

0:29:270:29:31

experience was coaching

a university side.

0:29:310:29:32

Patrick Gearey has been to meet him.

0:29:320:29:34

Ostersund calls itself

Vinterstaden, the winter city.

0:29:340:29:36

It's at home in ice -

ideal for some sports,

0:29:360:29:39

just not particularly football.

0:29:390:29:40

It makes the sudden growth

of Ostersunds FK from wintry

0:29:400:29:43

obscurity to playing Arsenal

in Europe all the more remarkable,

0:29:430:29:45

and stranger still they've been led

there by an English manager

0:29:450:29:48

who mixes coaching with a degree

in emotional intelligence.

0:29:480:29:51

It's not just about how you control

or pass a ball or shoot.

0:29:510:29:54

It's about how we interact

with each other.

0:29:540:29:56

If you are a footballer for two

hours a day and then you have

0:29:560:30:00

to live in Ostersund,

you have to be somebody's husband,

0:30:000:30:03

somebody's friend, somebody's

brother, so I think it's important

0:30:030:30:05

we have a responsibility to help

develop the person as well.

0:30:050:30:09

It's brought amazing results.

0:30:090:30:11

Ostersund have gone from the fourth

tier of Swedish football to beating

0:30:110:30:14

much bigger European clubs.

0:30:140:30:17

They are based in the remote centre

of Sweden, nearly 300

0:30:170:30:20

miles from Stockholm.

0:30:200:30:21

The current club was founded around

a month after Arsene Wenger

0:30:210:30:24

took charge of Arsenal.

0:30:240:30:26

The whole population of the town

could fit inside the Gunners'

0:30:260:30:29

Emirates Stadium with loads

of room to spare.

0:30:290:30:33

So they've found another way,

using not just tactics

0:30:330:30:35

but amateur dramatics.

0:30:350:30:38

This is them performing

for the locals.

0:30:380:30:40

It builds character,

says the chairman, a former officer

0:30:400:30:43

in the Swedish army.

0:30:430:30:45

For us, competing in

Sweden and in Europe,

0:30:450:30:47

it's about beating the system.

0:30:470:30:50

Beating the system for us is to

develop very different methods.

0:30:500:30:53

The players become stars,

not stars that have a lot of gold

0:30:530:30:59

around their neck and fancy cars,

but stars who are warm,

0:30:590:31:04

loving, caring.

0:31:040:31:07

The football season is just

starting in Sweden.

0:31:070:31:09

Ostersunds have only played

one cup match so far,

0:31:090:31:11

but you learn to warm up

quickly around here.

0:31:110:31:14

So Arsenal will be next

into the chiller, and they will,

0:31:140:31:17

of course, be big favourites,

but they wouldn't be the first side

0:31:170:31:20

to come to this remote little town

and find that they suddenly freeze.

0:31:200:31:24

Patrick Gearey, BBC News, Ostersund.

0:31:240:31:31

Time for a look at the weather.

0:31:310:31:33

Here's Stav Danaos.

0:31:330:31:36

I'll start with the rain and snow

radar, because I want to draw your

0:31:390:31:45

attention to where the snow is

falling, north and west Scotland,

0:31:450:31:48

very heavy in places. The blue

showing where the rain is. Slightly

0:31:480:31:51

milder air moving in, but it is a

north-south divide. Cold across the

0:31:510:31:58

northern half of the country, and we

have that snow. Pretty heavy in

0:31:580:32:04

north and west Scotland, with

accumulations of snow even down to

0:32:040:32:06

lower levels 15 centimetres plus

over the higher ground was with a

0:32:060:32:14

strong west, south-westerly wind,

gale forced, they could be drifting,

0:32:140:32:19

conditions. Driving conditions

across parts of Scotland and

0:32:190:32:20

Northern Ireland as well as further

south, much milder than of late, ten

0:32:200:32:27

or 11 degrees, but cold furthermore.

This evening and overnight, showers

0:32:270:32:32

continuing across Scotland, Northern

Ireland and the far north of

0:32:320:32:34

England. Most of the country will be

dry, clear and very cold. A

0:32:340:32:39

widespread frost, and watch out for

ice over the northern half of the

0:32:390:32:42

UK. Into Friday, the best of the

weather further south closer to an

0:32:420:32:50

area of high pressure near the near

continent. Lots of sunshine. Western

0:32:500:32:56

parts of Scotland, particularly the

north-west, further wintry showers.

0:32:560:33:00

Breezy in Northern Ireland. Cold in

the north, not quite as cold as

0:33:000:33:04

recently. For the weekend, things

look pretty good. High pressure

0:33:040:33:10

across the south, so plenty of sunny

spells. More cloud in the north and

0:33:100:33:14

west, with a fuel showers, and you

can see temperatures range from

0:33:140:33:19

between eight to 11 degrees, so a

bit milder across the board. This

0:33:190:33:21

feature will spoil our weather

heading into Sunday. It will bring

0:33:210:33:27

cloud, outbreaks of light rain and

drizzle, mainly to western areas.

0:33:270:33:33

The best of the sunshine in central,

southern and eastern areas. Quite

0:33:330:33:37

mild across the board. A

disappointing day in northern and

0:33:370:33:41

western areas, because of the cloud

and drizzle.

0:33:410:33:43

A reminder of our main

story this lunchtime:

0:33:430:33:49

The former football coach Barry

Bennell has been convicted of a

0:33:500:33:53

total of 43 counts of child sex

abuse against 11 victims.
