Snow, ice, strong winds and now

the threat of floods -

0:00:050:00:08

widespread disruption continues

across the UK.

0:00:080:00:11

The Army helped hundreds of people

stranded in their cars overnight,

0:00:110:00:15

and some passengers were stuck

on trains which were

0:00:150:00:17

unable to move for hours.

0:00:170:00:21

We had no heating and things

like the buffet car has run out

0:00:210:00:24

of food and drink earlier

on in the evening,

0:00:240:00:27

so it was a pretty cold night.

0:00:270:00:35

I'll be reporting live from Alnwick

in Northumberland, where people say

0:00:370:00:40

they are suffering the worst winter

weather conditions for almost a

0:00:400:00:43

decade.

0:00:430:00:44

We'll bring you the very latest from

our correspondents across the UK.

0:00:440:00:47

Also this lunchtime...

0:00:470:00:48

The Prime Minister prepares

to deliver a major

0:00:480:00:50

speech about Brexit -

she'll say a deal must pass five

0:00:500:00:53

tests and will bring the country

and Cabinet together.

0:00:530:01:01

We are not clones, many of us fought

on different sides of the referendum

0:01:050:01:09

campaign. It has been a discussion

about what is right for Britain.

0:01:090:01:13

A 21-year-old man is convicted

of trying to murder a woman

0:01:130:01:15

by running her over -

Paul Moore targeted Zaynab Hussein

0:01:150:01:18

because she was wearing a hijab.

0:01:180:01:19

Daily exposure to pollution -

including from light,

0:01:190:01:21

noise and air - is having an impact

on people's health, warns

0:01:210:01:24

the Chief Medical Officer.

0:01:240:01:28

Thousands of members of the public

will be invited into the grounds

0:01:280:01:31

of Windsor Castle for Prince Harry

and Meghan Markle's wedding in May.

0:01:310:01:37

And coming up in the sport,

Phil Neville's managerial career

0:01:370:01:39

gets off to a cracking start

as England's Lionesses

0:01:390:01:41

thrash France in Ohio.

0:01:410:01:48

Good afternoon and welcome

to the BBC News at One.

0:02:060:02:09

Snow, ice and powerful winds

are continuing to cause major

0:02:090:02:12

disruption over large parts

of the UK.

0:02:120:02:15

The army has been called out

in a number of areas to help

0:02:150:02:19

hundreds of drivers who were trapped

in their vehicles overnight.

0:02:190:02:22

Elsewhere, passengers

were trapped on trains,

0:02:220:02:25

without heating or lighting

in some cases.

0:02:250:02:29

All but one of the UK's rail

operators are running

0:02:290:02:32

a reduced service.

0:02:320:02:40

In the last few minutes

south-eastern Railway have told

0:02:420:02:45

passengers not to travel until

further notice.

0:02:450:02:47

There has also been major disruption

at airports across the country.

0:02:470:02:50

The bad weather is expected

to continue, with more snow showers

0:02:500:02:52

and windy conditions.

0:02:520:02:53

There are also eight flood warnings

in place in the south-west

0:02:530:02:56

and north-east of England.

0:02:560:02:57

This is the latest picture -

0:02:570:02:58

This is the latest picture -

0:02:580:02:59

there are now no red

or amber alerts in place,

0:02:590:03:01

but yellow warnings remain

across much of the country

0:03:010:03:04

and the cold weather could last well

into next week.

0:03:040:03:08

Let's go to Ben Brown,

who is in Alnwick in Northumberland.

0:03:080:03:18

Alnwick is snowbound, as you can

see. So are many of the nearby

0:03:190:03:24

villages, completely cut off by the

snow. Northumberland county council

0:03:240:03:28

is very worried about vulnerable

people, especially the elderly. In

0:03:280:03:32

Alnwick they have set up a makeshift

rescue centre in a sports hall for

0:03:320:03:37

drivers who were stranded for hours

overnight on the A1, which is

0:03:370:03:41

blocked between here and Beric

further north. That is just one

0:03:410:03:46

example of travel disruption we have

seen right around the UK. Because of

0:03:460:03:51

the winter weather crisis.

We will get reports from our

0:03:510:03:58

correspondents around the UK, first

Robert Hall who was stranded

0:03:580:04:00

overnight for many hours with

drivers on the A303 in Wiltshire.

0:04:000:04:08

Intense and unrelenting, Storm Emma

colliding with the Siberian blast

0:04:080:04:11

and shutting down the transport

network on a road by road. On the

0:04:110:04:16

A31 in Dorset, Hampshire Police

called in the army to help evacuate

0:04:160:04:20

trapped drivers.

Further north, our journey down the

0:04:200:04:24

A303 came to an abrupt halt in the

Wiltshire village of Chicklade.

0:04:240:04:28

Hundreds of vehicles defeated by a

series of steep hills. Drivers are

0:04:280:04:33

awaiting rescue in blinding snow.

Travelling tonight from east to west

0:04:330:04:38

is absolutely horrendous. If I put

the window down, hopefully you can

0:04:380:04:42

see it is driving snow. We have

probably got six or seven inches

0:04:420:04:47

here.

With lorries blocking hard... Half

0:04:470:04:52

the road, snowploughs struggled to

clear a path. Nobody was going

0:04:520:04:57

anywhere.

I hope to get to Taunton,

but at the moment it is not looking

0:04:570:05:02

promising and we could be stuck.

Trying to get to an old peoples home

0:05:020:05:07

to get the heating on, I have been

stuck here since three o'clock this

0:05:070:05:11

afternoon.

The manager of the village garage

0:05:110:05:14

had walked a mile to open up.

I walked from across the.

What was

0:05:140:05:21

it like?

Really horrendous.

Do you

think you will get out?

Of course we

0:05:210:05:26

will. There is worse trouble at sea,

granny would say.

0:05:260:05:32

At the foot of the next hill, a

delivery driver, Mark Brown, became

0:05:320:05:37

a traffic marshal.

You seem to have taken charge?

0:05:370:05:42

Somebody has to.

Finally after six

hours the traffic crawled forward.

0:05:420:05:46

But the next jam was only two miles

away.

0:05:460:05:51

As the skies lightened, still no

police presence.

0:05:510:05:54

In some vehicles, patients wore

thin. What do you think of the

0:05:540:05:59

emergency services response

overnight?

Has there been one? I

0:05:590:06:03

have not seen anything.

The misery on the A303 was mirrored

0:06:030:06:08

through the south-west and into

Wales.

0:06:080:06:11

On the outskirts of Cardiff, vehicle

after vehicle came to a halt.

0:06:110:06:17

Within the past hour, snow has begun

falling again. Our journey and those

0:06:170:06:23

of hundreds of others has no end in

sight.

0:06:230:06:26

Robert Hall, BBC News, Wiltshire.

There has been chaos overnight on

0:06:260:06:36

the railways. A train, a South

Western Railway train to Weymouth,

0:06:360:06:41

it set off last night and the

passengers were stranded on that

0:06:410:06:46

overnight because it broke down.

They were still on the train in

0:06:460:06:51

frozen carriages this morning. Let's

get this report from Duncan Kennedy.

0:06:510:06:58

How to sleep on a train when your

train is not a sleeper. This was one

0:06:580:07:02

passenger who spent last night

without heat or food.

0:07:020:07:06

This pair ended up camping on the

same train. Stationary for a total

0:07:060:07:12

of 15 hours.

It was so cold on board but some

0:07:120:07:15

people ended up in space blankets

and winter hats.

0:07:150:07:18

Philip Brown from Bournemouth was

among them. He left Waterloo just

0:07:180:07:24

after five o'clock yesterday

afternoon and did not get off until

0:07:240:07:27

seven o'clock this morning.

We lost power as well. They managed

0:07:270:07:35

to restore power so we had lights

but we had no heating, and things

0:07:350:07:39

like the birthday card had run out

of food and drink earlier in the

0:07:390:07:42

evening, so it was a pretty cold

night -- things like the birthday

0:07:420:07:47

card. I was on the train for 14, 15

hours, something that region.

0:07:470:07:51

The train spends most of the night

in the new Forest. Passengers said

0:07:510:07:56

the guard tried to help did not have

enough information. They all had to

0:07:560:08:03

wait until another train pulled up

alongside and had to walk across a

0:08:030:08:06

gangplank to get off.

South-west Trains issued a statement

0:08:060:08:10

apologising to all those involved,

saying it battled through the night

0:08:100:08:14

to try to keep trains moving in what

it called very challenging

0:08:140:08:18

conditions.

What should have been a three-hour

0:08:180:08:20

journey turned into more than half a

very uncomfortable day.

0:08:200:08:26

Duncan Kennedy, BBC News, The New

Forest. The weather is deteriorating

0:08:260:08:33

in Northumberland. In Scotland it

has been improving slightly. The red

0:08:330:08:37

warning that we saw which means a

threat to life has now been lifted.

0:08:370:08:43

Conditions beginning to improve and

a clear up operation and recovery

0:08:430:08:47

operation under way in many parts of

Scotland. This from Catriona Renton.

0:08:470:08:56

This terrifying footage shot on a

dash camp shows the quick reactions

0:08:560:09:01

of Edinburgh bus driver Charmaine

Laurie, who avoided hitting a car on

0:09:010:09:04

the wrong side of the road. 20

people were on her bus.

0:09:040:09:08

To me, it looks worse on the video

than I felt at the time. I got a

0:09:080:09:13

fright but I managed to avoid it,

luckily. And I really got on with my

0:09:130:09:18

job at about and forgot all about it

until I got home and my husband

0:09:180:09:22

asked me if I saw the video. He did

not know it was me driving. When I

0:09:220:09:29

looked at the video I was like, that

is me. He went your joking. I went

0:09:290:09:33

no, that was me.

This morning soldiers continued to

0:09:330:09:38

help drive doctors and nurses to and

from the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary

0:09:380:09:42

to carry on their crucial work.

For the vital, key members of staff

0:09:420:09:49

it will be absolutely vital. They

are really needed in such a busy

0:09:490:09:52

hospital, to keep the place going.

Our soldiers are part of the

0:09:520:09:56

community, we live in this local

area. My eldest son was born in the

0:09:560:10:02

Edinburgh infirmary so it is

important for us to support the

0:10:020:10:05

local community.

Edinburgh and Glasgow airports have

0:10:050:10:09

reopened, but these pictures from

Glasgow airport show what staff were

0:10:090:10:12

up against on the runway.

Conditions are still treacherous in

0:10:120:10:16

many

0:10:160:10:26

parts of the country, like here in

Fife.

0:10:290:10:30

In this cut-off village near

Kinross, farmers cleared the road so

0:10:300:10:32

medics could get to Ashley, who had

gone into labour. Her baby boy was

0:10:320:10:35

born safe and well. This is one of

the busiest parts of Glasgow city

0:10:350:10:39

centre, and over the last couple of

days it has been virtually shuts

0:10:390:10:41

down. With the weather warnings

downgraded you can see that things

0:10:410:10:43

are starting to slowly get back to

normal.

0:10:430:10:45

And there is no doubt it has taken

the efforts of many to get through

0:10:450:10:50

this difficult week.

Catriona Renton, BBC News.

0:10:500:10:57

Around the UK several thousand homes

are without power and electricity

0:10:580:11:01

and thousands of schools have

remained closed. I have been looking

0:11:010:11:04

at how other parts of the country

have been affected.

0:11:040:11:09

It was carnage on the M62 near

Rochdale. Vehicles colliding with

0:11:090:11:14

each other in heavy snow and

blizzard conditions. Drivers trapped

0:11:140:11:19

in cars and lorries for as long as

11 hours overnight.

0:11:190:11:25

In Worcestershire, teams have been

trying to clear roads and shovelling

0:11:250:11:30

snow off pavements, laying down as

much salt and Grits as fast as they

0:11:300:11:35

can. Few people are daring to

venture out, streets are empty.

0:11:350:11:41

In Shropshire, there are huge

snowdrifts, as there are in many

0:11:410:11:45

parts of the country, with

snowploughs doing their worst to

0:11:450:11:49

clear a way. In the West Midlands

alone 1500 schools are closed and

0:11:490:11:54

thousands more across the UK. Here

in Alnwick in Northumberland they

0:11:540:12:01

have been pulling cars out of the

snow. Northumberland county council

0:12:010:12:06

says these are the worst conditions

for eight years but the community is

0:12:060:12:10

pulling together.

Farmers and local, rural community

0:12:100:12:14

members are able to get out with

snowploughs have played their vital

0:12:140:12:19

part in clearing some of the rural

roads, ensuring communities that

0:12:190:12:22

would otherwise be stranded I able

to get onto the main roads, which

0:12:220:12:28

the council are focusing on.

Authorities in Northumberland say

0:12:280:12:33

they are especially worried about

vulnerable people in these snowy

0:12:330:12:37

conditions, particularly the

elderly, as the brutal winter

0:12:370:12:41

weather continues to bite.

I have to say the temperatures here

0:12:410:12:47

are really very, very cold. I think

the fields like temperature at the

0:12:470:12:51

moment in the north-east of England

is about minus eight.

0:12:510:12:55

Let's go to Sian Lloyd, who is at St

Athan in the Vale of Glamorgan. What

0:12:550:13:00

is the picture where you are?

It is a snowy picture at the moment.

0:13:000:13:09

Overnight, 51 centimetres of snow

was recorded as falling here,

0:13:090:13:13

believed to be the highest figure

anywhere in the UK. This road are

0:13:130:13:18

just about passable. We got here in

a four by four and saw huge drifts

0:13:180:13:24

along the way. Most people in this

village getting around on foot at

0:13:240:13:28

the moment. In the early hours of

this morning about three people were

0:13:280:13:34

rescued from a car. They have been

stranded in a snow drift not far

0:13:340:13:38

from here for more than 12 hours and

an SOS was effectively put out to

0:13:380:13:44

local people who could get to them.

They have since been taken to

0:13:440:13:49

hospital for a checkup. We are

currently on a yellow warning in

0:13:490:13:53

Wales after the red warning subsided

in the early hours. The danger is

0:13:530:13:58

ice, of course it is now snowing

again. Many, many roads in Wales are

0:13:580:14:04

treacherous, including many main

routes. 14 roads closed, not

0:14:040:14:10

including the country lanes.

Many of those are not possible.

0:14:100:14:13

Virtually all the schools in Wales

are closed under the threat of more

0:14:130:14:18

disruption to come.

Thank you very much, Sian Lloyd.

0:14:180:14:22

We have talked about the troubled

situation, the chaos around the UK

0:14:220:14:25

on the roads, the railways and the

airports.

0:14:250:14:30

Let's go to other transport

correspondent Victoria Fritz at

0:14:300:14:32

Heathrow.

What is the situation?

All UK

0:14:320:14:36

airports are now open that every

single one is operating severely

0:14:360:14:43

reduced schedules. This is expected

to be the worst day for flight

0:14:430:14:48

cancellations of the week. Take

Edinburgh airport, all Ryanair and

0:14:480:14:52

easyJet flights have been cancelled

today out of that output. Other

0:14:520:14:57

airports outside of the UK are

closed, making the situation worst.

0:14:570:15:03

Dublin, Geneva is another because of

poor weather. Around 50,000 Brits

0:15:030:15:08

are expected to be stranded, unable

to get back into the UK. Airports

0:15:080:15:13

like Heathrow have done all they can

to try to get as many planes in here

0:15:130:15:17

as possible in a safe fashion. They

have been de-icing the runways and

0:15:170:15:22

all airlines have been de-icing

their planes as well. Over 1000

0:15:220:15:26

lorry loads of snow was carted off

this runway yesterday alone. They

0:15:260:15:30

are combining flights to get as many

people to where they need to go, but

0:15:300:15:37

saying just check with your airline

before you make that journey, to

0:15:370:15:39

make sure it is not a wasted one.

Good advice, Victoria. Thank you.

0:15:390:15:45

Phil Mackie is in Worcester.

Just on the outskirts of wisdom. You

0:15:450:15:54

can see really how much snow was

drifting in the strong winds last

0:15:540:15:59

night. -- just on the outskirts of

Worcester. This is just outside the

0:15:590:16:06

city centre, there are six or ten

feet high snowdrifts. We expect snow

0:16:060:16:10

to fall from now until 6pm. But is

impacting travel, mostly on buses

0:16:100:16:16

and trains. You can get about but

once you leave the main roads, they

0:16:160:16:20

have not been gritted macro, they

are not clear. That is the

0:16:200:16:24

difficulty. With school staff on

businesses and shops closed, many

0:16:240:16:28

people have chosen to spend the day

at home, probably wisely, perhaps

0:16:280:16:32

fearing more is to come. Look at the

picture, I have not seen snowdrifts

0:16:320:16:38

this deep in my lifetime. Certainly

there is no sign of things improving

0:16:380:16:42

very quickly.

0:16:420:16:49

Thank you very much indeed. That is

it from us in Northumberland.

0:16:490:16:52

That is it from us

in Northumberland.

0:16:520:16:55

0:17:150:17:17

Ben Brown, many thanks.

0:17:170:17:18

Ben Brown, many thanks.

0:17:180:17:20

The Prime Minister is about to

deliver a major speech

0:17:200:17:23

on the government's plans

for the UK's relationship

0:17:230:17:25

with the EU after Brexit.

0:17:250:17:28

Theresa May will say that any deal

with the EU must pass five tests,

0:17:280:17:31

including respecting the result

of the referendum,

0:17:310:17:34

and protecting jobs and security.

0:17:340:17:37

And she will pledge to bring

the country together.

0:17:370:17:40

Our Political Correspondent

Eleanor Garnier reports.

0:17:400:17:47

The chill between Britain and

Brussels reached new lows this week,

0:17:470:17:51

with both sides hardening up their

positions. As she lays the ground

0:17:510:17:55

for the next phase of negotiations,

the challenge for Theresa May is to

0:17:550:18:00

smooth out the disagreements abroad

and at home as well as ministers

0:18:000:18:05

have not always agreed.

We are not

clones. We were on different sides

0:18:050:18:11

of the referendum campaign. Of

course this has been a discussion

0:18:110:18:16

about the different views on the

country, that is what the government

0:18:160:18:19

has been working to do and when

people see the speech today they

0:18:190:18:22

will think this is a very sensible

approach.

We are being promised more

0:18:220:18:29

detail, not just on what the Prime

Minister wants from the deal, but

0:18:290:18:33

also the compromises she is willing

to take. And she will spell out how

0:18:330:18:38

after Brexit the UK will seek to

merit EU rules in some areas but

0:18:380:18:43

diverged in others. With months of

disagreement inside Cabinet

0:18:430:18:48

ministers are now signed up to the

principles behind the speech, but

0:18:480:18:52

will the fragile truce endure?

I

imagine the speech will have aspects

0:18:520:18:56

of it that I find I'm comfortable as

a lever supporter and vice versa.

0:18:560:19:02

But I think trying to bring the two

sides together will be something we

0:19:020:19:08

take from this speech.

Labour

detailed more of its demands for

0:19:080:19:11

Brexit earlier this week. Now it has

questioned for the government.

How

0:19:110:19:16

are you going to protect services in

this country and what is your actual

0:19:160:19:22

answer to the question of avoiding a

hard border in Northern Ireland?

0:19:220:19:26

These are the questions that we have

had for 21 months now and the Prime

0:19:260:19:32

Minister needs to answer them today.

Don't expect the solutions to all be

0:19:320:19:37

spelt out today. The critical test

of this speech is whether it can win

0:19:370:19:42

over negotiators in Brussels and

convince them to move onto the next

0:19:420:19:46

stage, talks about trade.

0:19:460:19:47

stage, talks about trade.

0:19:470:19:50

In a moment we'll speak

to Damian Grammaticas

0:19:500:19:52

who is in Brussels,

but first to Norman Smith

0:19:520:19:54

who is in Downing Street.

0:19:540:19:57

You will be listening to all of

this. What does the Prime Minister

0:19:570:20:02

have to achieve? What sort of

reception will she get?

This is not

0:20:020:20:07

going to be a speech which answers

all the many questions about Brexit,

0:20:070:20:11

it will not fill in all the details,

it will not end the Tories' civil

0:20:110:20:18

war over Europe, Boris Johnson and

Philip Hammond will not be best

0:20:180:20:22

buddies after it. The task is to get

the EU to sit down and to begin

0:20:220:20:27

talking trade seriously. To do that

Theresa May will in effect say to EU

0:20:270:20:32

leaders, look, I know the era of

cake eating is over, at least in

0:20:320:20:37

terms of negotiations. I know we

cannot have our cake and eat it, so

0:20:370:20:43

she will put to one side that big

slab of Brexit Battenberg and say to

0:20:430:20:47

the EU leaders, I'd take on board

your concerns, I know your red

0:20:470:20:51

lines, I get why you are worried

about the integrity of the single

0:20:510:20:55

market being undermined, and she

will couple that with a template for

0:20:550:21:00

trade with a whole package of

proposals, including those areas

0:21:000:21:05

where bits of the British economy

might continue to have to meet EU

0:21:050:21:09

standards. Other areas where we

might carry on and be supervised by

0:21:090:21:15

EU regulators. The hope is that EU

leaders listening to that one thing,

0:21:150:21:20

now they are taking this seriously,

now we can really begin to talk

0:21:200:21:24

about trade. The danger is EU

leaders take a look at this and

0:21:240:21:31

think this looks a bit like Theresa

May is trying to pick and choose

0:21:310:21:34

which bits of the single market she

takes advantage of and which bits

0:21:340:21:39

she ignores. In other words, you

have not quite given up the cake.

0:21:390:21:44

Norman, thank you.

0:21:440:21:52

Damian, in Brussels, a lot of people

near you would love to stop that

0:21:520:21:56

phrase have your cake and eat it.

Just a few minutes ago walking past

0:21:560:22:02

me here was one of the EU

commissioners who sits in

0:22:020:22:05

Jean-Claude Juncker's Cabinet. I

asked him and what he said was they

0:22:050:22:10

are all waiting and they will be

listening to see what Theresa May

0:22:100:22:13

says, to see what detail there is.

Will there be concrete proposals

0:22:130:22:17

that can move things forward? That

is what we want he said. The EU side

0:22:170:22:24

is waiting for that. Michel Barnier

has made clear that he needs to

0:22:240:22:28

know. The UK has said it does not

want a border between Northern

0:22:280:22:33

Ireland and the Republic and Theresa

May has said she does not want that

0:22:330:22:37

to be moved to between the UK and

Ireland of Ireland. If Mrs May

0:22:370:22:46

starts to say today that she was to

have special access for some parts

0:22:460:22:51

of the UK economy to the EU, I think

that will not go down very well. The

0:22:510:22:57

EU is saying there are difficult

choices the Great Britain has to

0:22:570:23:04

face up to, it could bring barriers

to trade with the EU. How much

0:23:040:23:10

control does it want over rules and

regulations, the same thing. The EU

0:23:100:23:14

wants the detail and they will

respond.

Not long to wait. Damian

0:23:140:23:20

Grammaticas and Norman Smith.

0:23:200:23:21

Damian Grammaticas and Norman Smith.

0:23:210:23:23

And you can watch that speech live

on the BBC News Channel -

0:23:230:23:26

it's due to begin at half past one.

0:23:260:23:29

As soon as that gets under way we

will carry it on the BBC News

0:23:290:23:32

Channel.

0:23:320:23:33

Channel.

0:23:330:23:34

Our top story this lunchtime:

0:23:340:23:38

Snow, ice and strong winds and now

the threat of floods. Widespread

0:23:380:23:42

disruption continues across the UK.

0:23:420:23:46

And still to come...

0:23:460:23:49

The orchestra stranded

in the snow who made sure

0:23:490:23:50

it was a special white wedding.

0:23:500:23:54

Coming up in Sport: Great Britain's

Katarina Johnson Thompson has

0:23:540:23:56

started her bid for gold

at the World Indoor Athletics

0:23:560:24:00

Championships in Birmingham.

0:24:000:24:08

People are being exposed on a daily

basis to a cocktail of pollution,

0:24:120:24:15

including light and noise pollution,

which is having a significant

0:24:150:24:17

impact on their health.

0:24:170:24:20

That's the warning from England's

chief medical officer.

0:24:200:24:24

Dame Sally Davies says a lot

is known about the impact

0:24:240:24:28

on the environment, but isn't

properly understood when it

0:24:280:24:30

comes to human sickness.

0:24:300:24:31

Our health correspondent

Dominic Hughes reports.

0:24:310:24:34

The impact of serious air

pollution on a condition such

0:24:340:24:38

as asthma is well understood,

but what is less clear is the wider

0:24:380:24:41

effect on our health

of all the other pollutants

0:24:410:24:43

we experience every day.

0:24:430:24:46

For example, the way light

from phones and tablets might

0:24:460:24:49

disrupt our sleep patterns and how

that might play out over

0:24:490:24:51

a long period of time.

0:24:510:24:55

Now England's Chief Medical Officer

says more research is needed,

0:24:550:24:58

not just into today's threats,

but also those in the future.

0:24:580:25:03

I am most concerned about air

at this moment but we must not

0:25:030:25:06

forget to measure the impact

on health of other types

0:25:060:25:09

of pollution or we could find in 10,

20, 30 years there is a real problem

0:25:090:25:13

that we didn't see

coming early enough.

0:25:130:25:17

Today's report says

the NHS could lead the way

0:25:170:25:19

on reducing pollution levels.

0:25:190:25:22

with more than a million staff,

the health service is one

0:25:220:25:25

of the biggest employers

in the country and is responsible

0:25:250:25:28

for around one in every 20 road

journeys, so the NHS

0:25:280:25:32

could for example cut down

on consumption of single use

0:25:320:25:35

plastics and emissions

from vehicles and buildings.

0:25:350:25:39

And health campaigners say this

report adds weight to calls

0:25:390:25:42

for new legislation on air quality.

0:25:420:25:46

Air pollution is having a very real

impact on all of our health.

0:25:460:25:50

It can cause lung disease and heart

disease and it has been linked to up

0:25:500:25:53

to 40,000 early deaths every year.

0:25:530:25:56

If nothing is done,

there are warnings that consistent,

0:25:560:25:59

long-term exposure to a range

of pollutants, air, light,

0:25:590:26:02

noise and chemical, could undermine

efforts to improve public health.

0:26:020:26:09

A better understanding

of the threat will help

0:26:090:26:12

identify possible solutions.

0:26:120:26:15

Dominic Hughes, BBC News.

0:26:150:26:18

A 21-year-old man has been found

guilty at Nottingham Crown Court

0:26:180:26:21

of attempting to murder a Muslim

woman by running her over.

0:26:210:26:24

Paul Moore, from Leicester,

targeted Zaynab Hussein

0:26:240:26:27

because she was wearing a hijab.

0:26:270:26:30

He was also convicted

of seriously injuring

0:26:300:26:33

a 12-year-old Muslim schoolgirl.

0:26:330:26:34

Dominic Casciani reports.

0:26:340:26:38

Paul Moore, convicted

today of a racially

0:26:380:26:40

motivated attempted murder.

0:26:400:26:42

His victim, a Somali mother

from Leicester, Zaynab Hussein.

0:26:420:26:45

He didn't know her,

he picked her out at random.

0:26:450:26:48

Last September after a night

of heavy drinking he told friends

0:26:480:26:52

he wanted to run someone over

and in the early morning as parents

0:26:520:26:54

took their children to school,

he drove around Leicester looking

0:26:540:26:57

for a target.

0:26:570:27:00

And it was here that

Paul Moore found his victim.

0:27:000:27:04

Zaynab Hussein was walking home

after dropping her two

0:27:040:27:06

youngest children at school

and as she reached this spot,

0:27:060:27:11

Moore came round this corner,

at speed and slammed into her.

0:27:110:27:15

She smashed into this

wall and when she hit

0:27:150:27:17

the ground her head was bleeding

and her limbs were broken.

0:27:170:27:20

As she struggled to cry for help,

Moore drove off, did a U-turn

0:27:200:27:25

and came back and this time he went

over her with all four wheels.

0:27:250:27:30

Paul Moore drove off and minutes

later tried to hit a 12-year-old

0:27:300:27:33

Muslim schoolgirl identifiable

by her headscarf.

0:27:330:27:38

He clipped her side and sent

her school bag flying.

0:27:380:27:41

Today he has been found guilty

of that second attack as well.

0:27:410:27:44

The jury at Nottingham Crown Court

heard that Mrs Hussein,

0:27:440:27:47

a mother of nine, has been left

with life-changing injuries.

0:27:470:27:54

She is confined to bed

and needs yet more surgery.

0:27:540:27:57

After the attack Moore

told a relative he had

0:27:570:27:59

deliberately run the woman over

because of terrorism in London.

0:27:590:28:01

He had done it for his

country and he was proud.

0:28:010:28:04

Dominic Casciani, BBC News

at Nottingham Crown Court.

0:28:040:28:11

More than 2,000 members

of the public will be

0:28:110:28:13

invited into the grounds

0:28:130:28:16

of Windsor Castle for Prince Harry

and Meghan Markle's wedding in May.

0:28:160:28:22

Our Royal Correspondent Nicholas

Witchell is with me.

0:28:220:28:27

Explain a little bit more about who

might be invited.

The first thing to

0:28:270:28:31

say is you cannot be applying for a

place. They will be invited into the

0:28:310:28:38

grounds of Windsor Castle, not the

chapel. They will be members of the

0:28:380:28:43

public from across the United

Kingdom and they will be nominated

0:28:430:28:46

by the Queen's representatives

across the country. The couple hope

0:28:460:28:49

they will be a broad range of

backgrounds and ages and they have

0:28:490:28:53

asked they should be young people

who have shown leadership and those

0:28:530:28:57

who have served their communities.

There will be 200 people from the

0:28:570:29:03

charities and organisations that

Harry and Meghan support, 600 people

0:29:030:29:06

from the Windsor Castle community,

other people live within the castle,

0:29:060:29:12

and slightly more than 500 people

from the Royal household. The

0:29:120:29:16

purpose is it should share in a

moment of fun and joy on a day that

0:29:160:29:21

will reflect the character and the

values of the bride and groom.

Nick,

0:29:210:29:26

thank you very much.

0:29:260:29:34

Now, the weather has caused huge

problems for many people,

0:29:340:29:36

but for some, has proved

an unexpected bonus.

0:29:360:29:38

The BBC Concert Orchestra

was due to be taking part

0:29:380:29:40

in a school project,

which was cancelled

0:29:400:29:42

because of the weather,

but the hotel they were stuck

0:29:420:29:44

in was hosting a wedding

so the musicians decided

0:29:440:29:47

to put their talents to good use.

0:29:470:29:48

Charlotte Gallagher has the story.

0:29:480:29:52

One couple's special day

made even more magical,

0:29:520:29:55

all because of the famous BBC

Concert Orchestra.

0:29:550:30:00

The bride and groom

were going to play a recording

0:30:000:30:03

of Pachelbel's Canon,

but ended up with the real thing.

0:30:030:30:07

I think it was just

the impact that it had,

0:30:070:30:11

like, when they started,

like, it sort of took

0:30:110:30:13

your breath away.

0:30:130:30:14

Oh, yeah.

0:30:140:30:15

Yeah.

0:30:150:30:17

Very unexpected.

0:30:170:30:19

It was a nice surprise.

0:30:190:30:21

Some of the guests couldn't get

there because of the snow.

0:30:210:30:25

Because a lot of people had

to cancel, it was a bit

0:30:250:30:28

of an upset on the day.

0:30:280:30:30

But then it just sort of made it...

0:30:300:30:32

Made it special again.

0:30:320:30:35

The orchestra usually plays

for huge audiences in venues

0:30:350:30:38

like the Royal Albert Hall.

0:30:380:30:41

But their show in snowy Skegness

is one they'll never forget.

0:30:410:30:44

Charlotte Gallagher, BBC News.

0:30:440:30:48

Time for a look at the weather,

here's Phil Avery.

0:30:480:30:50

Time for a look at the weather,

here's Phil Avery.

0:30:500:30:53

Just what you need, someone selling

you more aware there. I am going to

0:30:530:30:59

show you the totals with regards to

lying snow depths. 52 centimetres of

0:30:590:31:05

snow just outside Cardiff. Not 1

million miles behind is Bishop time.

0:31:050:31:11

No great surprise, still this brutal

easterly dominating the scene. This

0:31:110:31:16

low pressure in the South West is

beginning to become a real player

0:31:160:31:20

because it is throwing up quite a

significant band of snow into the

0:31:200:31:24

southern half of the British Isles.

Further north you have more snow

0:31:240:31:29

showers in northern and eastern

areas. These

0:31:290:31:37

areas. These thermometer

temperatures are academic. We are

0:31:370:31:39

still well down below zero. There

has been an incursion of relatively

0:31:390:31:44

mild air in the far south and that

causes a problem with freezing rain.

0:31:440:31:51

10-15 centimetres over the high

ground of Wales as that of snow

0:31:510:31:54

eases further north. By roundabout

late evening and overnight it will

0:31:540:32:01

be pushing into the North Midlands

and the North East of England.

0:32:010:32:05

Further north there are more snow

showers on another cold night. How

0:32:050:32:11

are we shaping up for the weekend?

It is still cold in the north,

0:32:110:32:17

milder in the south, and there is

still a further risk of snow. We

0:32:170:32:21

have been looking for Scandinavia

for that high pressure, but it is

0:32:210:32:26

into the South West and with this

low pressure that will be the major

0:32:260:32:30

player this weekend. Pretty leaden

skies. Watch out for eyes across

0:32:300:32:36

southern pies as we start the new

day. That rainfall will be falling

0:32:360:32:40

onto cold surfaces and there will be

fog as well. Further north you are

0:32:400:32:45

still stuck in a pretty cold regime.

There will be showers here. This is

0:32:450:32:51

Sunday, so watch out for eyes first

thing. A bit of snow perhaps moving

0:32:510:32:57

into the eastern side of England up

into Scotland. Further south there

0:32:570:33:02

is rainfall by day, but watch out

for this process of freezing and

0:33:020:33:07

thawing. We are getting the

temperatures into the heart of next

0:33:070:33:12

week that closely to where they

should be at this time of the year.

0:33:120:33:16

But in the short term you still have

to be thinking about winter and what

0:33:160:33:20

we have had rather than what is to

come.

0:33:200:33:23

we have had rather

than what is to come.

0:33:230:33:26

That's all from the BBC News at One,

so it's goodbye from me
