Two victims of the black cab rapist

John Worboys have won a landmark

0:00:060:00:09

case against the police.

0:00:090:00:11

The women, who were raped

by Worboys years before

0:00:110:00:15

he was brought to justice,

were not believed by officers

0:00:150:00:17

They had all the information there.

0:00:170:00:20

They should have caught him,

they could have stopped him the very

0:00:200:00:23

next day, but they didn't.

They chose to not believe me.

0:00:230:00:26

The ruling means the police

could face legal action from anyone

0:00:260:00:29

who's a victim of serious crime

that they feel is not

0:00:290:00:32

properly investigated.

0:00:320:00:33

Also this lunchtime...

0:00:330:00:39

The United Nations says

the bombardment of Ghouta in Syria

0:00:390:00:41

is "beyond imagination" -

hundreds of people have died

0:00:410:00:43

after days of attack.

0:00:430:00:46

Donald Trump indicates he's willing

to ban devices which turn

0:00:460:00:48

rifles into machine guns,

following pressure after last week's

0:00:480:00:51

school shooting in Florida.

0:00:510:00:59

We're going to talk to these

politicians tomorrow. We are going

0:00:590:01:03

to talk to them the day after that.

We are going to keep talking, we are

0:01:030:01:07

going to keep pushing until

something is done, because people

0:01:070:01:11

are dying and this can't happen any

more.

0:01:110:01:13

The economy sees the strongest six

months of growth in productivity

0:01:130:01:15

since the recession of 2008,

say new figures.

0:01:150:01:21

Jumping for joy - Great Britain's

women reached Friday's

0:01:210:01:25

curling semi-finals,

with a 6-5 win over Canada.

0:01:250:01:30

Also in the sport on BBC News...

0:01:300:01:32

Can Mica Moore and Mica McNeill put

their funding ordeal behind them,

0:01:320:01:35

to take a shock medal in the

women's bobsleigh in Pyeongchang?

0:01:350:01:41

Good afternoon and welcome

to the BBC News at One.

0:02:000:02:03

Two victims of the black cab rapist,

John Worboys, have won

0:02:030:02:07

a landmark legal case

against the Metropolitan Police,

0:02:070:02:11

after officers failed to take action

when they reported him.

0:02:110:02:14

The women were sexually assaulted

by Worboys in 2003 and 2007,

0:02:140:02:18

and said their treatment by police,

who didn't believe them,

0:02:180:02:21

caused them mental harm.

0:02:210:02:22

The ruling by the Supreme Court

means police may now face legal

0:02:220:02:26

action if they fail to properly

investigate serious cases.

0:02:260:02:29

Here's our legal correspondent,

Clive Coleman.

0:02:290:02:34

For years, John Worboys cruised

the streets of London in his black

0:02:340:02:38

cab, looking for women to dupe,

drug and sexually assault.

0:02:380:02:45

This woman, known for legal

reasons as DSD, was

0:02:450:02:47

attacked by Worboys

in 2003, was the first

0:02:470:02:49

to report him to police.

0:02:490:02:51

I put my trust in the police.

0:02:510:02:55

I went to them for them

to sort this out.

0:02:550:02:58

I knew who had attacked me.

0:02:580:03:00

I didn't know his name,

but I knew who was responsible

0:03:000:03:03

for this.

They had all the information there.

0:03:030:03:04

They should have caught him,

they could have stopped him the very

0:03:040:03:07

next day but they didn't.

They chose to not believe me.

0:03:070:03:15

If they had done their job in 2003,

there would be one victim. I can

0:03:150:03:22

deal with one victim. What I can't

deal with is 105 victims because I

0:03:220:03:27

wasn't believed.

0:03:270:03:28

Worboys was able to continue

0:03:280:03:31

to attack women until he was finally

0:03:310:03:32

brought to justice in 2009.

0:03:320:03:33

DSD and another of

Worboys' victims brought

0:03:330:03:35

a legal challenge, claiming

the police failures breached

0:03:350:03:38

their human rights and amounted

to inhuman and degrading treatment.

0:03:380:03:42

The Metropolitan Police fought them

to the Supreme Court.

0:03:420:03:45

Today, the court ruled

in the women's favour.

0:03:450:03:51

We have held that failures

in the investigation of the crimes,

0:03:510:03:54

provided they are sufficiently

serious, will give rise to liability

0:03:540:03:56

on the part of the police.

0:03:560:04:00

And we further found

that there were such

0:04:000:04:04

serious deficiencies in this case.

0:04:040:04:06

Today's landmark ruling has huge

implications for both the victims

0:04:060:04:10

of violent crime and the police

who investigate it.

0:04:100:04:16

If they seriously fail

in an investigation, they can face

0:04:160:04:19

human rights actions by the victim,

and have to pay out compensation.

0:04:190:04:23

This is the highest court

in the land telling the police that

0:04:230:04:26

in the most serious of cases,

they have to do their job properly.

0:04:260:04:31

It's looking at things

where perhaps Article 3

0:04:310:04:33

isn't engaged.

0:04:330:04:38

Do we have to move resources

from those sort of investigations to

0:04:380:04:41

things like fraud, into supporting

more work around serious crime?

0:04:410:04:45

CROWD CHANTS: Domestic

violence is a crime!

0:04:450:04:47

Today's judgment can't make up

for the police errors

0:04:470:04:50

in investigating John Worboys.

0:04:500:04:53

But it will put real pressure

on them to ensure such

0:04:530:04:56

mistakes don't happen again.

0:04:560:05:00

Clive is outside the Supreme Court.

0:05:000:05:08

This is a significant ruling. Tell

us more about the wider

0:05:080:05:11

implications?

0:05:110:05:20

They claimed they had negligently

carried out an investigation. The

0:05:230:05:27

really significant aspect of today's

ruling is that this is a novel route

0:05:270:05:32

using the Human Rights Act, whereby

victims of serious violent crime can

0:05:320:05:37

now hold the police to account, they

can take them to court and they can

0:05:370:05:43

win compensation. This is one big

legal battle by John Worboys'

0:05:430:05:48

victims that is now over and over

successfully. But they face another

0:05:480:05:53

very significant battle because the

two women who were at the centre of

0:05:530:05:56

this case are also the two women

seeking to you dished -- judicially

0:05:560:06:00

review the decision of the parole

board to release John Worboys. A

0:06:000:06:05

fourth hearing in that Judicial

Review will take place at the High

0:06:050:06:09

Court next month. The battle is not

over for the victims but today is a

0:06:090:06:12

very good day for them.

Clive Coleman.

0:06:120:06:14

The United Nations has said

the situation in a rebel-held suburb

0:06:140:06:18

of Damascus in Syria,

which has endured intense government

0:06:180:06:20

air strikes for the past three days,

is "beyond imagination".

0:06:200:06:25

It has called on global leaders

to demand that Syrian government

0:06:250:06:28

forces immediately stop

bombing Eastern Ghouta.

0:06:280:06:30

Activists say at least 250

people have been killed

0:06:300:06:33

there since Sunday night.

0:06:330:06:34

There are some disturbing images

in Tom Burridge's report.

0:06:340:06:42

This is the intensity

of the bombing of Eastern Ghouta,

0:06:420:06:47

by Syrian forces who have Russia's

and Iran's support.

0:06:470:06:53

EXPLOSIONS.

0:06:530:06:57

CRYING.

0:06:570:07:01

The result is hard to watch.

0:07:010:07:04

And hear.

0:07:040:07:08

But those who survive

the air strikes note

0:07:080:07:09

that the nightmare is not over.

0:07:090:07:13

The UN has again called

on the Syrian regime

0:07:130:07:15

to stop its assault.

0:07:150:07:16

But while we spoke to one woman,

the missiles were still falling.

0:07:160:07:22

Assad has brought his forces

to destroy Ghouta and its families,

0:07:220:07:26

adults and children.

0:07:260:07:30

So that's 48 hours, hundreds

of attacks by warplanes, rockets.

0:07:300:07:37

Oh, my God.

0:07:370:07:41

Oh, my God.

0:07:410:07:44

Warplanes, attacks.

0:07:440:07:50

After years of siege,

the rebels have in this

0:07:500:07:54

sprawling suburb of Damascus,

a network of underground hospitals.

0:07:540:07:58

But basic commodities are scarce

and there is only rudimentary care.

0:07:580:08:05

The suffering of civilians

left there is clear.

0:08:050:08:08

One UN official described

it as unimaginable.

0:08:080:08:12

But missing from the videos filmed

by activists are the rebel soldiers.

0:08:120:08:16

A complicated alliance of Islamist

groups, labelled as terrorists

0:08:160:08:19

by the Assad regime.

0:08:190:08:24

Washington's influence in Syria has

over the years waned.

0:08:240:08:27

The State Department says only

the Syrian regime and its backers

0:08:270:08:30

can de-escalate the violence.

0:08:300:08:35

The horrors of eastern Aleppo

are being repeated in East Ghouta

0:08:350:08:37

with the ongoing slaughter

of trapped civilians

0:08:370:08:41

and woefully inadequate access

for humanitarian actors.

0:08:410:08:43

Russia must end its support

of the Assad regime and its allies.

0:08:430:08:47

They are responsible

for the attacks, for the dire

0:08:470:08:50

humanitarian situation

in East Ghouta, and for

0:08:500:08:53

the horrendous civilian death toll.

0:08:530:08:56

Outside actors, and there are many,

have turned Syria into the theatre

0:08:560:08:59

for regional power struggles.

0:08:590:09:03

Eastern Ghouta now in

a deadly phase, is just

0:09:030:09:06

the latest tragic chapter.

0:09:060:09:09

Tom Burridge, BBC News.

0:09:090:09:12

Our diplomatic correspondent,

James Robbins, is here.

0:09:120:09:16

Very distressing scenes from Ghouta.

0:09:160:09:17

Is there anything the international

community can do?

0:09:170:09:24

So far the international community

is relying on strong language. You

0:09:240:09:28

heard from the State Department. In

the last hour Theresa May has been

0:09:280:09:32

telling MPs about her deep concern.

She said deliberately targeting

0:09:320:09:39

civilians blatantly violates

international humanitarian law. She

0:09:390:09:45

specifically called out the

Russians, not just the Syrian

0:09:450:09:47

regime. She said the Russians as

backers of the Syrian regime were

0:09:470:09:53

deeply implicated in all of this.

The Kremlin has denied these claims.

0:09:530:09:58

It is hard to see how the Syrian

regime could be bombing Gutor

0:09:580:10:02

without at least Russian consent. --

Eastern Ghouta. The problem for

0:10:020:10:09

Theresa May and the United States is

they have largely abdicated, left

0:10:090:10:13

the battlefield in recent years.

Russia has moved into that vacuum

0:10:130:10:18

and established its order and

military dominance in Syria. The

0:10:180:10:21

West is in a very weak position. But

it still hopes it can persuade

0:10:210:10:27

Russia in the next phase of peace

negotiations, to try to recognise

0:10:270:10:30

there has to be an end to this awful

slaughter. I don't think there will

0:10:300:10:34

be much of an end, frankly, before

the Syrian regime is convinced it

0:10:340:10:40

has destroyed not just rebel forces

but civilians who are accused of

0:10:400:10:43

being supporters of anti-Assad

factions.

0:10:430:10:44

James, thank you.

0:10:440:10:46

Survivors of the Florida school

shooting that left 17 people dead

0:10:460:10:49

last week, have gathered

in the state capital

0:10:490:10:51

to press politicians to take

more action on gun control.

0:10:510:10:54

President Trump has backed a move

to ban the accessory devices known

0:10:540:10:57

as bump stocks that turn rifles

into machine guns.

0:10:570:11:00

It was used by a gunman in Las Vegas

to kill 58 concert-goers last year.

0:11:000:11:03

David Willis reports

0:11:030:11:08

Does he know where to shoot on him?

0:11:080:11:11

The scenes are nothing new here,

but last week's high school shooting

0:11:110:11:15

in Florida has galvanised the debate

on gun control in America

0:11:150:11:17

in a way few here can remember.

0:11:170:11:24

Students who survived an attack

which killed 17 of their teachers

0:11:240:11:27

and classmates are speaking out,

fluently and forcefully.

0:11:270:11:31

Do not let people try

to get under your skin!

0:11:310:11:35

Their youthful voices

resonating where those of long

0:11:350:11:39

serving politicians have

largely fallen flat.

0:11:390:11:43

We're what is bringing

the change, OK?

0:11:430:11:46

We're going to talk to these

politicians tomorrow,

0:11:460:11:48

we're going to talk to them

the day after that.

0:11:480:11:51

We are going to keep talking.

0:11:510:11:53

We're going to keep pushing

until something is done.

0:11:530:11:55

Because people are dying,

and this can't happen any more.

0:11:550:12:00

Reflecting the national mood

of grief and anger in the wake

0:12:000:12:02

of last week's shooting,

President Trump -

0:12:020:12:04

who supports gun ownership-

offered a concession.

0:12:040:12:07

A ban on bump stocks,

a device used to devastating effect

0:12:070:12:11

in the Las Vegas massacre last year.

0:12:110:12:16

I signed a memorandum directing

the Attorney General to propose

0:12:160:12:21

regulations to ban all

devices that turn legal

0:12:210:12:23

weapons into machine guns.

0:12:230:12:27

I expect that these critical

regulations will be

0:12:270:12:32

finalised, Jeff, very soon.

0:12:320:12:35

Students arriving for a rally later

today in the Florida state capital,

0:12:350:12:38

Tallahassee, say that is not enough.

0:12:380:12:40

They're heading to Washington

at the invitation of the White House

0:12:400:12:42

to press the case for

comprehensive gun reform.

0:12:420:12:50

Some here are hailing it a turning

point in the acrimonious debate

0:12:530:12:57

about guns.

0:12:570:12:58

But America has been

here so many times before.

0:12:580:13:00

David Willis, BBC News, Washington.

0:13:000:13:03

Barbara Plett Usher

is in the Florida state

0:13:030:13:05

capital of Tallahassee,

where protestors

0:13:050:13:06

have been gathering.

0:13:060:13:09

What have the students been saying?

0:13:090:13:16

They have been saying they certainly

were not expecting to be sure this

0:13:160:13:19

time last week. They have suddenly

been turned into political activists

0:13:190:13:23

and they are learning as they go.

They say they are speaking from the

0:13:230:13:27

heart and they are speaking from

experience. Their message is simple.

0:13:270:13:31

We don't want to be afraid to go to

school. They are not anti-gun. They

0:13:310:13:36

just want a reform of gun laws so

when 19-year-old mentally unstable

0:13:360:13:40

person cannot buy a semiautomatic

rifle legally and come into school

0:13:400:13:45

and kill them. This is the first

generation that has grown up with

0:13:450:13:50

mass shootings. They practice safety

drills in school, which did not work

0:13:500:13:54

in this case. They have also grown

up with social media, so they know

0:13:540:13:58

how to use it to their cause and

they are doing that. They have

0:13:580:14:03

managed to break into the polarised

debate about gun violence and gun

0:14:030:14:07

control. At the same time they are

against a powerful gun lobby and an

0:14:070:14:11

entrenched gun culture.

Barbara Plett-Usher.

0:14:110:14:14

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has

announced a review of how patient

0:14:140:14:17

problems caused by NHS

treatments are handled.

0:14:170:14:20

The review follows high profile

campaigns over the hormone

0:14:200:14:23

pregnancy test Primodos,

the anti-epilepsy medication

0:14:230:14:27

Sodium Valproate and

the use of vaginal mesh.

0:14:270:14:30

He told MPs the review will consider

whether there needs to be public

0:14:300:14:33

enquiries in each case.

0:14:330:14:35

Mr Hunt also said that the response

from the NHS to the patient campaign

0:14:350:14:38

groups was "not good enough".

0:14:380:14:46

A leaked document has set out the

common strategy post Brexit.

0:14:520:15:01

Eleanor Garnier reports.

0:15:010:15:05

As the Brexit Secretary tours the EU

capitals meeting Greek politicians

0:15:050:15:09

today, stumbling blocks remain.

Brussels and the UK both agree the

0:15:090:15:16

need for temporary transition period

after we leave the EU, to allow

0:15:160:15:19

governments and businesses to get

used to the new rules. But a leaked

0:15:190:15:23

version of the government's latest

position leaves some questions

0:15:230:15:27

unanswered, including over the right

of EU citizens.

Our starting point

0:15:270:15:32

has been as the Prime Minister has

set out, that we would allow people

0:15:320:15:35

to, grand goal, live out their lives

in the UK on the same basis as

0:15:350:15:41

before. But we will need a

conversation about how they will

0:15:410:15:44

continue on after.

The challenge for

the Prime Minister, not just in

0:15:440:15:51

Brussels, but in her own party. More

than 60 Eurosceptic Tory MPs have

0:15:510:15:58

written to Theresa May urging her to

stand firm in the negotiations.

0:15:580:16:02

Laying down their red lines on

Brexit.

0:16:020:16:06

They are issues that need to be

clarified because there are some

0:16:060:16:09

people in the government and around

the government who seem to contest

0:16:090:16:13

these things. For example, that we

might be in a customs union or that

0:16:130:16:20

we might be ruled takers from the

European Union after we have left.

0:16:200:16:25

But colleagues in the Conservative

Party are certainly not going in the

0:16:250:16:28

same direction.

They think they are

helping the Prime Minister. The

0:16:280:16:33

Prime Minister has said she wants to

deliver this deep partnership. She

0:16:330:16:37

said she wants to keep frictionless

borders, orderly transition is. Give

0:16:370:16:42

the Flex ability to do that.

It is

the timing of the intervention that

0:16:420:16:47

is significant. This pressure from a

faction of Tory MPs who are key to

0:16:470:16:51

the survival of Theresa May and her

government, comes just as the Prime

0:16:510:16:55

Minister prepares for tomorrow's

crunch meeting of most senior

0:16:550:17:00

ministers to thrash out an agreed

position on what the government from

0:17:000:17:02

Brexit. The road to Brexit is not

always straightforward. Tricky time

0:17:020:17:10

is not just for this campaign boss

Mike but for the Prime Minister,

0:17:100:17:14

too. It tough task to keep both

sides of party onside. Some will end

0:17:140:17:19

of the disappointed.

0:17:190:17:22

Our assistant political editor,

Norman Smith, is in Westminster.

0:17:220:17:28

Let's talk about the leaked document

on the transition period. Not the

0:17:280:17:33

news the Prime Minister might have

wanted before the big meeting

0:17:330:17:36

tomorrow.

Absolutely not, four weeks

Tory Brexiteers have been on a

0:17:360:17:41

behaviour. Even Boris Johnson has

stayed resolutely on script. But now

0:17:410:17:47

you know that the nerves jangling

over whether Theresa May could

0:17:470:17:53

backslide on the kind of Brexit that

they want. All the more so when they

0:17:530:17:57

look at this leaked document because

it suggests the government is not

0:17:570:18:01

going to push back against EU

demands to allow freedom of movement

0:18:010:18:06

to continue unchanged during the

transition period. There is

0:18:060:18:10

ambiguity over the length of the

transition period. It says it should

0:18:100:18:13

be two years but will take as long

as it takes. Also no suggestion of a

0:18:130:18:19

veto to block new EU rules we do not

like, instead a joint committee to

0:18:190:18:27

monitor and try to sort out any

disagreements. And crucially if we

0:18:270:18:29

want to sign new trade deals during

the transition period we will have

0:18:290:18:34

to go along to the EU and say can we

do this. When you put all that

0:18:340:18:40

together, I suspect by the close of

play today there will be quite a few

0:18:400:18:44

Brexiteers getting out their

fountain pens and blotting paper and

0:18:440:18:48

firing off a few more letters to

Theresa May with so-called helpful

0:18:480:18:53

suggestions.

Norman, thank you.

We take a look at the runners

tonight's Brit Awards.

Average wages went up

slightly in the final three

0:19:310:19:33

months of last year,

rising by 2.5 per cent.

0:19:330:19:37

That's according to the latest

figures from the Office

0:19:370:19:39

for National Statistics,

which also show that the amount

0:19:390:19:42

each worker produces -

known as productivity

0:19:420:19:44

- has increased.

0:19:440:19:46

But there was also a slight rise

in unemployment from a record low.

0:19:460:19:49

Here's our economics

correspondent Andy Verity.

0:19:490:19:57

This maker of upmarket switches and

sockets has been growing its

0:19:580:20:07

business and so should the exporting

to China. But it has its

0:20:070:20:11

manufacturing plant near Hastings

and workers here have at last won a

0:20:110:20:17

pay rise that matches inflation,

without a fight.

Staff have been on

0:20:170:20:21

the same salary effectively for the

past three or four years. They have

0:20:210:20:24

been working hard, the company doing

well, so we felt it was time to

0:20:240:20:29

reward them accordingly.

The firm

can afford to pay more because it

0:20:290:20:34

has invested £200,000 in a robot

enabling each worker to produce more

0:20:340:20:39

top-quality switches and sockets

each hour. Exactly the kind of boost

0:20:390:20:44

to productivity that the economy has

been crying out for.

The robot will

0:20:440:20:51

polish components to a much greater

accuracy than a human. And the spin

0:20:510:20:57

off is it does it in half the time.

Not every worker has done as well as

0:20:570:21:00

these employees. Unemployment has

risen to 4.4%, the average pay rise

0:21:000:21:10

was 2.5%, still less than inflation

but between October and December

0:21:100:21:15

demand that we produce per hour rose

by 1.8%. If that keeps improving,

0:21:150:21:19

and that is and is, inflation

beating pay rises should become more

0:21:190:21:23

affordable.

There will come a moment

when people realise they have more

0:21:230:21:28

power in the labour market than they

used to because we're losing a lot

0:21:280:21:32

of immigrant labour in key sectors

so wages are likely to go up in

0:21:320:21:36

those sectors.

The figures show a

change in who was joining the

0:21:360:21:40

workforce. In 2017 the number of UK

nationals working in the UK went up

0:21:400:21:46

by 300,000. The number of EU

nationals working here went up by

0:21:460:21:51

around 100,000. But the number of

non-EU nationals, people from the

0:21:510:21:55

rest of the world, went down by 60

8000. The squeeze on living

0:21:550:22:01

standards has loosened its grip. But

it is still uncomfortably tight.

0:22:010:22:05

Only further improvements in pay and

productivity can bring that to an

0:22:050:22:10

end. Andy Verity, BBC News.

0:22:100:22:12

Scotland Yard are trying

to establish whether there's a link

0:22:120:22:14

between two fatal stabbings in north

London,

0:22:140:22:16

which happened within a mile of each

other over a two-hour period.

0:22:160:22:19

The victims are believed to be

a boy in his late teens

0:22:190:22:22

and a man aged around 20.

0:22:220:22:24

At least fifteen people have been

killed by knife crime

0:22:240:22:25

in London this year.

0:22:250:22:29

The High Court has ruled that

government plans to tackle air

0:22:290:22:31

pollution are unlawful.

0:22:310:22:34

It's the third time environmental

campaigners have won on the issue -

0:22:340:22:36

arguing that levels of harmful

nitrogen dioxide are still too high

0:22:360:22:39

across most of the UK.

0:22:390:22:40

Roger Harrabin is here.

0:22:400:22:47

Tell us more about this ruling. The

government is supposed to have

0:22:470:22:51

cleaned up the air by the year 2000

so already it is eight years too

0:22:510:22:56

late. The legal group, Client Earth,

has been taking legal action against

0:22:560:23:01

the government to push them to go

faster. The law says that they have

0:23:010:23:05

is to deliver clean air as quickly

as possible for the each time they

0:23:050:23:09

go for a court action the judge

agrees with Client Earth that the

0:23:090:23:12

government is not delivering clean

air as quickly as possible. So

0:23:120:23:15

previously the government has been

asked to sort out 28 areas where

0:23:150:23:20

pollution is especially bad and tell

local councils to address the

0:23:200:23:23

problem. It has been asked to do

another 33 areas now where pollution

0:23:230:23:28

is bad and councils again will be

asked to address the problem.

0:23:280:23:33

Perhaps by keeping out diesel

vehicles or trying to control

0:23:330:23:36

traffic at busy times. So Client

Earth obviously have to keep going

0:23:360:23:40

to court, they said this should not

happen and the government should

0:23:400:23:43

just have done what it was meant to.

The government says it accepts the

0:23:430:23:47

rulings and is now going to really

clean up the air as quickly as it

0:23:470:23:50

can.

Roger, thank you.

0:23:500:23:53

Team GB's women's curling team have

beaten the reigning champions Canada

0:23:530:23:55

to reach the semi-finals.

0:23:550:23:58

It means the Canadian women have

failed to win a medal for the first

0:23:580:24:01

time in Olympic history.

0:24:010:24:03

The British captain, Eve Muirhead,

says the team is back on track.

0:24:030:24:06

The men's team face a playoff

as they seek a place

0:24:060:24:09

in the medal rounds.

0:24:090:24:10

Our sports correspondent

Andy Swiss is in Pyeongchang.

0:24:100:24:18

Welcome to Pyeongchang where as you

say it has been such a big day for

0:24:200:24:25

British curlers, both the men and

the women took medals in Sochi four

0:24:250:24:29

years ago, both hoping to reach the

semifinals today and while the men

0:24:290:24:32

still have some work to do, the

women are safely there thanks to

0:24:320:24:36

their captain.

0:24:360:24:38

Sport so often turns

on a moment of genius.

0:24:380:24:40

And this was Eve Muirhead's.

0:24:400:24:42

With the scores tied against Canada,

the British captain conjured

0:24:420:24:44

a mathematical miracle.

0:24:440:24:48

One, two, hits that one.

0:24:480:24:50

Hits that one, it's a great

shot from Eve Muirhead.

0:24:500:24:52

It's a cracker.

0:24:520:24:56

In curling, the simple aim is to get

closest to the target.

0:24:560:24:59

But how Eve Muirhead

took the scenic route.

0:24:590:25:01

Her geometric genius took Britain

into the semifinals,

0:25:010:25:03

even if her reaction...

0:25:030:25:04

A jump in the air for joy!

0:25:040:25:06

..Left her slightly embarrassed.

0:25:060:25:09

I can't actually remember it!

0:25:090:25:10

When you're up there,

when you're in that zone,

0:25:100:25:12

you forget about the small things.

0:25:120:25:14

But yes, I'm glad I landed

safely on my feet!

0:25:140:25:19

So Eve Muirhead's team

are through but could there

0:25:190:25:21

now be another Muirhead

into the semifinals?

0:25:210:25:24

Brother Thomas is hoping to help

the men's team into the last four

0:25:240:25:27

of their competition.

0:25:270:25:28

But there was to be no

family celebration.

0:25:280:25:31

The men's team thrashed by the USA.

0:25:310:25:33

They will now have to beat

Switzerland in a play-off

0:25:330:25:35

to reach the semifinals.

0:25:350:25:43

Today's most dazzling

display on the ice though

0:25:440:25:45

came from a 15-year-old.

0:25:450:25:47

The extraordinary Alina Zagitova.

0:25:470:25:50

Absolutely glorious!

0:25:500:25:57

The Olympic Athletes from Russia

are still yet to win a gold here.

0:25:570:26:00

But her new world record

suggests that could change.

0:26:000:26:02

Slightly less graceful,

the ski cross which delivered

0:26:020:26:07

its usual brand of chaos.

0:26:070:26:08

Oh, it's gone!

0:26:080:26:13

An early crash left only two men

standing in the final

0:26:130:26:16

with Canada's Brady Leman

edging the gold.

0:26:160:26:17

But in the last few hours,

British hopes in the Bobsleigh

0:26:170:26:20

have taken a bump.

0:26:200:26:21

Mica McNeil and Mica Moore,

who relied on crowdfunding

0:26:210:26:26

to help their preparations,

were sixth overnight

0:26:260:26:27

but after a poor third run,

their medal prospects

0:26:270:26:29

seemed to be over.

0:26:290:26:34

The third run dropped them down to

eighth place going into their final

0:26:340:26:40

run. So it seems Britain will not

add to their medal tally today but

0:26:400:26:44

will able be hoping the coders can

do so over the next few days. In the

0:26:440:26:52

last few minutes it has denounced

the American evangelist Billy Graham

0:26:520:26:54

has died. He was 99 and had been

suffering from Parkinson's disease

0:26:540:26:59

for several years. We look back at

his life.

There are problems that

0:26:590:27:04

face us tonight that will never be

solved unless we bring them to the

0:27:040:27:08

Lord Jesus Christ.

I gave my son to

die for you. Charismatic in every

0:27:080:27:14

sense, Lou Graham, his message was

simple. People should turn to Jesus.

0:27:140:27:21

Come through that door! He had a

remarkable effect on a sometimes

0:27:210:27:26

disinterested public.

God loves you.

And if there's one thing you get out

0:27:260:27:32

of these days it is this, God loves

you.

In 1954 London first

0:27:320:27:39

experienced the force of the Billy

Graham brand of evangelism.

We come

0:27:390:27:45

here at the invitation of these

churches to help you in a crusade to

0:27:450:27:50

win people to Jesus Christ.

As his

reputation grew so did the crowd.

0:27:500:27:55

From New York to Nigeria.

He was

God, he was also man. I want you to

0:27:550:28:03

get out of your seat right now and

say I want my sin to be forgiven.

It

0:28:030:28:07

was at a Billy Graham rally in

Earl's Court in 1966 that Cliff

0:28:070:28:12

Richard publicly declared his

Christianity. The pair joined up

0:28:120:28:22

with the Billy Graham television

ministry. In that into churches and

0:28:220:28:25

homes. And reaching hundreds of

millions.

0:28:250:28:34

millions. And he was courted by

American presidents. From Nixon to

0:28:340:28:38

Clinton, though he never took sides.

I'm looking forward to death, I want

0:28:380:28:43

to go into that glorious New World

that everyone who believes in Jesus

0:28:430:28:49

Christ is going to go. I will have

all the actors that I would like to

0:28:490:28:54

have answers to now.

0:28:540:29:01

have answers to now.

He said, I'm

just a preacher, that is it. Despite

0:29:010:29:06

cancer and Parkinson's disease,

Billy Graham was just that. A

0:29:060:29:10

preacher. Into old age. And

thousands still flocked to hear him.

0:29:100:29:16

Billy Graham who has died at the age

of 99.

0:29:160:29:22

It's the Brit Awards tonight.

0:29:220:29:24

And it's 22-year-old Londoner,

Dua Lipa, who's leading

0:29:240:29:26

the way with five nominations.

0:29:260:29:28

The comedian Jack Whitehall

will host the ceremony

0:29:280:29:30

for the first time.

His report contains some flash

photography.

0:29:380:29:41

Her global hit New Rules has been

viewed on you tube more

0:29:410:29:44

than a billion times.

0:29:440:29:45

The youngest female artist ever

to achieve that goal.

0:29:450:29:49

The popularity of the 22-year-old

Londoner has helped her to lead

0:29:490:29:52

the way with five nominations.

0:29:520:29:56

For the moment at least

she is bigger than Beyonce,

0:29:560:29:59

Taylor Swift, Rhianna.

0:29:590:30:00

And she has what all of those huge

American artists have.

0:30:000:30:04

She's not work-shy, she will turn

up, she will do the interview,

0:30:040:30:07

she would do the promo.

0:30:070:30:09

She will spend 24 hours doing

the video and extreme focus, 24/7.

0:30:090:30:15

She faces strong competition in Best

video and the prestigious Best album

0:30:150:30:18

award from Ed Sheeran.

0:30:180:30:21

The most successful male artist

of the last 12 months.

0:30:210:30:27

He dominated the singles charts

for much of the year.

0:30:270:30:31

And his album Divide spent

months at number one,

0:30:310:30:36

although huge commercial success

doesn't always necessarily lead

0:30:360:30:38

to winning at the Brits.

0:30:380:30:46

He won half a dozen awards

with Oasis, this year Liam Gallagher

0:30:470:30:50

gets his first solo nomination

for best male.

0:30:500:30:53

But in typical fashion has fallen

out with the Brits accusing them

0:30:530:30:56

of being too scared to ask him

to perform at the show.

0:30:560:31:04

Unlike last weekend at the Baftas

where actors were asked to wear

0:31:040:31:07

black, people attending tonight's

awards are being asked to wear

0:31:070:31:10

a white rose pin to show support

for the anti-harassment movement.

0:31:100:31:16

Time for a look at the weather.

0:31:160:31:18

Here's Susan Powell.

0:31:180:31:19

Here's Susan Powell.

0:31:190:31:23

Some settled weather on the way in

the coming days but not to say

0:31:230:31:28

nothing will change was not quite a

big change especially for the start

0:31:280:31:31

of next week as it is going to feel

much colder. But this is the reason

0:31:310:31:37

for the settled weather at the

moment. An area of high pressure. At

0:31:370:31:41

the moment it is meaning a lot of

fine weather for the afternoon with

0:31:410:31:47

some patchy cloud still across

central areas of England. But from

0:31:470:31:53

any some bright sunny spells and

temperatures already just a shade

0:31:530:31:57

down on yesterday with highs of

around 9 degrees. Tonight the cloud

0:31:570:32:02

thins out and breaks allowing for

quite a widespread frost to develop.

0:32:020:32:12

Down to around -3 in rural areas.

Thursday gets off to a cold but

0:32:130:32:17

bright start from any. If anything

we tend to see the cloud building

0:32:170:32:21

through the course of the day so

perhaps some hazy sunshine in the

0:32:210:32:25

afternoon. Even some drizzle in the

far north-west. And temperatures

0:32:250:32:31

falling a couple of degrees. Then

the easterly wind really starts to

0:32:310:32:35

build going through Friday and that

will have the biggest impact on the

0:32:350:32:39

way that things feel. Even by Friday

it is going to be colder than we

0:32:390:32:46

have been used to. For the weekend

high pressure is still with us,

0:32:460:32:52

parking both weather friends out in

the Atlantic. High pressure ring a

0:32:520:32:56

lot of dry and fight -- fine weather

for the weekend. But by Sunday

0:32:560:33:02

temperatures just 4 degrees but

factor in that wind as well. Feeling

0:33:020:33:05

colder than that. Now high pressure

still with us next week, shifting

0:33:050:33:13

its orientation slightly.

0:33:130:33:19

its orientation slightly. Feeding in

error coming from Siberia. And there

0:33:190:33:22

is the risk of some snow on into

next week. The uncertainty in the

0:33:220:33:26

forecast will be just exactly which

direction the cold air tracks in. It

0:33:260:33:35
