Tonight at Six: Suicides, assaults and self-harm -

:00:00.:00:00.

the human cost of the prisons crisis.

:00:00.:00:11.

Suicides have reached record levels in England and Wales

:00:12.:00:13.

and attacks on prison staff number in the thousands.

:00:14.:00:18.

It's like a soldier on a battlefield.

:00:19.:00:20.

You don't know what you're going to be faced with and,

:00:21.:00:23.

"Am I going to make it home tonight?"

:00:24.:00:29.

Ministers say they're investing more in the system,

:00:30.:00:30.

Theresa May is on her way to meet President Trump.

:00:31.:00:36.

She's under pressure to say that she disagrees

:00:37.:00:38.

And he's stepping into another row - the Mexican President calls

:00:39.:00:54.

off his meeting with Mr Trump in a stand-off over that wall.

:00:55.:00:58.

A bleak future - one in five children in the UK now live

:00:59.:01:01.

And washed up on a Welsh beach and close to death -

:01:02.:01:08.

And coming up in the sport on BBC News:

:01:09.:01:15.

Roger Federer's into the Australian Open men's final,

:01:16.:01:19.

with Serena Williams up against sister Venus.

:01:20.:01:44.

Good evening and welcome to the BBC News at Six.

:01:45.:01:46.

There's been a record rise in suicides, assaults and self-harm

:01:47.:01:49.

inside prisons in England and Wales, and the latest figures are a stark

:01:50.:01:53.

reminder of the crisis in the penal system.

:01:54.:01:56.

There were 354 deaths in prison custody last year.

:01:57.:02:00.

Nearly 6,500 staff were assaulted in the year to last September -

:02:01.:02:07.

And incidents of self-harm are up by nearly a quarter.

:02:08.:02:13.

Our Home Affairs Correspondent, June Kelly, has been speaking to one

:02:14.:02:16.

prison officer about what these figures mean once you walk

:02:17.:02:19.

The rise in assaults, suicides and self harming is relentless.

:02:20.:02:40.

The sense of crisis in the system was underlined by a riot

:02:41.:02:43.

in Birmingham prison, where inmates posed

:02:44.:02:45.

Just one of a string of jail disturbances in recent months.

:02:46.:02:52.

Amid the volatile atmosphere, today's figures show that

:02:53.:02:54.

in the past year a record number of prisoners have

:02:55.:02:58.

It's very hard when you've got members of your family who...

:02:59.:03:03.

Sarah is a long serving prison officer whose

:03:04.:03:05.

She describes having to deal with a teenage suicide.

:03:06.:03:11.

A self-inflicted death is a horrific experience.

:03:12.:03:14.

You feel, is there something more I could have done?

:03:15.:03:17.

I came on duty, and I went to perform a roll check.

:03:18.:03:22.

I lifted the flap, and this young man was suspended in his cell.

:03:23.:03:25.

We lay him on the bed, and I saw a note to his sister on the side,

:03:26.:03:32.

and I saw it was his birthday, and I thought, what a waste.

:03:33.:03:35.

Just describe the thoughts in your head as you're going into work.

:03:36.:03:42.

When you open a door, you don't know what you're

:03:43.:03:50.

I've had everything from urine, faeces, televisions thrown at me.

:03:51.:03:56.

Prisons are awash with drugs and psychoactive substances that

:03:57.:04:02.

All adding to the underlying problems of staff shortages

:04:03.:04:07.

Vulnerable prisoners are suffering in the increasingly threatening

:04:08.:04:12.

I am very clear that the levels of violence in our prisons are too

:04:13.:04:18.

high, and the levels of self harm are too high.

:04:19.:04:21.

Since I became Justice Secretary, I have focused on dealing

:04:22.:04:24.

That's why we are investing an extra ?100 million.

:04:25.:04:28.

2500 extra prison officers across the estate, so that we are able

:04:29.:04:34.

to have a caseload of one prison officer for every six prisoners.

:04:35.:04:39.

But Sarah says the challenge is not recruiting staff,

:04:40.:04:42.

It's like a soldier on a battlefield.

:04:43.:04:47.

You don't know what you are going to be faced with.

:04:48.:04:49.

And on top of that, you've got the fear.

:04:50.:04:52.

I've never been in fear of my life until now,

:04:53.:04:58.

and we just don't get paid enough to have that fear everyday.

:04:59.:05:03.

Our Home Editor, Mark Easton, is with me here.

:05:04.:05:14.

We have seen those figures. How bad is it? Very serious, totally

:05:15.:05:21.

unacceptable, not my words but the words of Liz Truss, the Justice

:05:22.:05:27.

Secretary, describing prisons in England Wales. Though very few weeks

:05:28.:05:30.

at the end of last year, we had all those rights in Bedford, Birmingham,

:05:31.:05:35.

the Isle of Sheppey, Hull. We know that assaults on staff and suicides

:05:36.:05:40.

are at record levels. Post a half of prisoners reoffend within a year of

:05:41.:05:45.

leaving jail, two thirds among juvenile offenders, so the Ministry

:05:46.:05:48.

of Justice has an enormous challenge. Its annual budget has

:05:49.:05:53.

been cut by 15% and some of those savings come from prisons. They

:05:54.:05:58.

somehow got to reduce running costs at the same time as reducing

:05:59.:06:01.

violence and self harm and reoffending. There are more promises

:06:02.:06:05.

of officers, more right teams and new legislation to cut reoffending,

:06:06.:06:12.

but many offenders would argue that -- campaigners would argue that the

:06:13.:06:15.

only sustainable solution is to either spend a lot more money or

:06:16.:06:17.

lock up a lot fewer people. And there's a lot more detail

:06:18.:06:20.

about the pressures on the prison That will take you to

the latest news and analysis Theresa May is flying

:06:23.:06:27.

to America today, on her way to becoming the first

:06:28.:06:33.

foreign leader to meet But, as she left, President Trump

:06:34.:06:36.

sparked off a new controversy, saying that he thought torture

should be used when There's been widespread condemnation

:06:41.:06:42.

of his remarks and MPs here are demanding that Mrs May

:06:43.:06:48.

reaffirm Britain's In the last half an hour, Mrs May

:06:49.:06:59.

has made her position clear, saying that there would be a question over

:07:00.:07:05.

huge areas of security cooperation if America permitted torture again.

:07:06.:07:10.

Theresa May setting out for Washington to collect what is

:07:11.:07:16.

arguably a great prize, as the first foreign leader invited to sit down

:07:17.:07:19.

with President Trump. But there are big risks as well. Of getting too

East, when Isis are doing things nobody has heard of since medieval

:07:33.:07:37.

times, would I feel strongly about waterboarding? As far as I'm

:07:38.:07:41.

concerned, we have to fight fire with fire. The president has not yet

:07:42.:07:47.

decided to return to waterboarding of terror suspects, a technique

:07:48.:07:49.

designed to simulate drowning in the hope of extracting information but

:07:50.:07:54.

if he allows it, the Prime Minister suggested to journalists she could

:07:55.:07:59.

withdraw some sharing of British intelligence, a significant threat.

:08:00.:08:02.

Back home, the opposition had demanded clarity. I want to be very

:08:03.:08:07.

blunt that you cannot approach the problems of the world on the basis

:08:08.:08:11.

that you will bring back torture, bring back waterboarding, you will

:08:12.:08:18.

build a wall against your nearest neighbour. Britain has long opposed

:08:19.:08:22.

the use of torture, although previous governments stand accused

:08:23.:08:26.

of complicity in torture by others in the post-9/11 word. -- world.

:08:27.:08:35.

Today, the Foreign Secretary we stated the official position. The

:08:36.:08:38.

Prime Minister answered that in the House of Commons yesterday and she

:08:39.:08:41.

was clear that our principal position and our objection to

:08:42.:08:47.

torture remains unchanged. When Theresa May meets Donald Trump, she

:08:48.:08:52.

must balance her desire to renew and to strengthen the special

:08:53.:08:54.

relationship with a political requirement to confront the special

:08:55.:08:59.

challenges which he poses. As well as torture, the two leaders disagree

:09:00.:09:03.

on the threat from Russia and the usefulness of Nato. They disagree on

:09:04.:09:07.

climate change, and yet both say they want a strong post-Brexit trade

:09:08.:09:11.

deal, although Britain favours free trade and Mr Trump -- Mr Trump's

:09:12.:09:17.

America does not. In America, Mrs May will first meet leading

:09:18.:09:22.

republicans, many of whom do not support the president on torture and

:09:23.:09:26.

do want a deal with Britain. The fact that she is coming to meet us

:09:27.:09:31.

is testament to this being a very important relationship. In

:09:32.:09:34.

Philadelphia, the security is in place and already it's clear that

:09:35.:09:38.

her face-to-face talks with President Trump will be far from

:09:39.:09:40.

straightforward. In the last hour, the President

:09:41.:09:40.

of Mexico has cancelled his plans It follows Mr Trump's latest remarks

:09:41.:09:43.

on Twitter about his controversial plan to build a border wall

:09:44.:09:47.

between the two countries. Whether it's on social media

:09:48.:09:49.

or his first TV interview since entering the White House,

:09:50.:09:52.

Donald Trump has demonstrated once again that he is unlike any

:09:53.:09:54.

previous president. Donald Trump's new executive toy,

:09:55.:10:12.

his first ride today an Air Force One, one of the most potent symbols

:10:13.:10:18.

of US presidential power. In prime time last night, America's new

:10:19.:10:23.

reality show, the former property tycoon giving a tour of the

:10:24.:10:27.

country's most prized piece of real estate. It is a picture of the

:10:28.:10:31.

crowd. The audience was the biggest ever. And stopping repeatedly to

:10:32.:10:37.

point out the new pictures, showing the crowd size at his inauguration.

:10:38.:10:43.

I see it the sea of love, is something special. This was the

:10:44.:10:46.

letter given to me by President Obama. He showed off the hand

:10:47.:10:51.

written note given by his predecessor and was asked whether

:10:52.:10:54.

taking over his office and wielding such awesome power had changed him.

:10:55.:11:00.

I don't want to change much. I can be the most presidential person ever

:11:01.:11:03.

apart from possibly the great Abraham Lincoln, but I can be the

:11:04.:11:06.

most presidential person. He also stood by his widely dismissed claim

:11:07.:11:11.

that millions of people voted illegally in the presidential

:11:12.:11:16.

election, the reason he thinks Hillary Clinton won more votes

:11:17.:11:19.

nationwide. Do you think that talking about millions of illegal

:11:20.:11:23.

votes is dangerous to this country? Not at all because many people feel

:11:24.:11:28.

the same. He is expected to sign an executive order later calling for an

:11:29.:11:31.

investigation to vote fraud, and we are also expecting an order

:11:32.:11:36.

temporarily banning immigrants from seven mainly Muslim countries from

:11:37.:11:39.

entering the United States. Would that cause a Muslim backlash around

:11:40.:11:45.

the world? The world is a mess, as angry as it gets. You think this is

:11:46.:11:50.

going to cause a bit more anger? The world is an angry place. The world

:11:51.:11:54.

is total mess. But there were more angry words this morning over the

:11:55.:11:58.

wall along the Mexican border, with the Mexican president refusing to

:11:59.:12:01.

pay for it and cancelling a planned visit to Washington next week after

:12:02.:12:06.

Donald Trump suggested in a tweet that he should rethink his travel

:12:07.:12:12.

plans. Almost a week into his term in office, it's already becoming

:12:13.:12:14.

clear that Donald Trump is changing the presidency more than the

:12:15.:12:20.

presidency is changing him. Mick Bryant, BBC News, Washington.

:12:21.:12:22.

Let's get the view from our North America Editor, Jon Sopel.

:12:23.:12:24.

Mexico - US stand-off, arguments about torture, quite a female

:12:25.:12:37.

atmosphere for Theresa May to be walking into. Yes, and Theresa May

:12:38.:12:44.

and Donald Trump could could not be more different in terms of

:12:45.:12:48.

personality and character. Theresa May was asked about this on her

:12:49.:12:52.

flight to Philadelphia. She said that sometimes opposites attract.

:12:53.:12:58.

She will want the purpose of this to be an Brexit, trade, Nato, on the

:12:59.:13:02.

potential of the special relationship but, in America and

:13:03.:13:06.

Washington in particular, they talk about stray voltage. Just look at

:13:07.:13:11.

the stray voltage there has been today. We have learned that the

:13:12.:13:16.

senior management team at the State Department has resigned en masse. We

:13:17.:13:20.

have heard that the Mexican president isn't coming any more

:13:21.:13:24.

because of their Twitter spat. We have heard there has been a major

:13:25.:13:29.

row in the Republican Party over torture and that Donald Trump is

:13:30.:13:34.

going to sign this executive order on voter fraud, some of which,

:13:35.:13:39.

according to the New York Times, the evidence for is based on a

:13:40.:13:43.

conversation he is supposed to have had with the German golfer Bernhard

:13:44.:13:48.

Langer. Apart from that, it's been a quiet morning in Washington.

:13:49.:13:52.

Unions at Tata have recommended steel workers at its UK

:13:53.:13:54.

plants accept a deal which includes pension reform.

:13:55.:13:56.

The three unions said the offer was the "only credible and viable

:13:57.:13:59.

Agreements on changes to pensions have been seen as essential

:14:00.:14:02.

to future investment, including ?1 billion

:14:03.:14:04.

at the Port Talbot plant in Wales over ten years.

:14:05.:14:06.

A ballot on the offer is expected to go ahead on Monday.

:14:07.:14:10.

There was some good news on the economy today.

:14:11.:14:12.

New figures for the final three months of last year show the economy

:14:13.:14:16.

It's quite a contrast from the gloomy predictions before

:14:17.:14:19.

last year's referendum, suggesting that a vote to leave

:14:20.:14:22.

But, as our Economics Editor, Kamal Ahmed, reports,

:14:23.:14:28.

there could still be pain on the way.

:14:29.:14:36.

It was Napoleon who famously and sarcastically called us a nation of

:14:37.:14:41.

shopkeepers, and the government will be pleased today that the UK economy

:14:42.:14:47.

is still one based on consumers and the high street. Britain's services

:14:48.:14:53.

sector, 80% of the economy, was the reason for the positive figures for

:14:54.:14:57.

shoppers in Reading, it was good business as usual. A lot of people

:14:58.:15:01.

thought that the referendum and the vote to leave would mean consumers

:15:02.:15:05.

might be nervous, what is the future, and would stop spending. Did

:15:06.:15:09.

you find that was true? I haven't seen any difference personally. I

:15:10.:15:13.

think consumer spending will maintain itself and, long-term, I

:15:14.:15:21.

think we are in for a good ride. I think we are in an unstable

:15:22.:15:25.

situation, I really do. We have got nothing that is filling us with

:15:26.:15:30.

confidence. Instability, lack of confidence, they drove a myriad of

:15:31.:15:34.

warnings before the referendum. There would be a hit to the value of

:15:35.:15:39.

peoples homes, at least 10% and to 18%. Material slowdown in growth,

:15:40.:15:46.

increase in inflation. Higher prices, less growth means less jobs,

:15:47.:15:51.

so higher unemployment. We are indeed a nation of shoppers and,

:15:52.:15:54.

frankly, those gloomy predictions before the referendum haven't come

:15:55.:16:00.

to pass. Consumer confidence is still strong, business confidence is

:16:01.:16:03.

still strong but, with inflation rising and Britain actually still to

:16:04.:16:09.

start the process of leaving the EU, which of course we haven't done yet,

:16:10.:16:11.

will that confidence remain? - The Chancellor meeting apprentices

:16:12.:16:21.

at Microsoft, a company that is investing in the UK. I asked him

:16:22.:16:26.

about the Bank of England forecast that said growth could slow next

:16:27.:16:31.

year. This is economic pain cancelled or it delayed? What the

:16:32.:16:37.

figures show is that the UK economy continues to be resilient and

:16:38.:16:42.

continues to confound the sceptics. Of course, we recognise that as we

:16:43.:16:46.

go into this period of negotiation with the European Union and we

:16:47.:16:52.

absorb the impacts of deappreciation of sterling, there will be more

:16:53.:16:57.

uncertainty ahead during this year. British built cars off to the

:16:58.:17:06.

continent today as production reached a 17-year high. But there is

:17:07.:17:11.

still that breb ever Brexit shadow. We are getting comments from our

:17:12.:17:15.

members saying they're waiting to see what the future's going to hold

:17:16.:17:21.

and for that greater certainty about the future relationship with Europe.

:17:22.:17:25.

The nation of shoppers forges on. Britain's growth last year was the

:17:26.:17:30.

highest of any of the major western economies. Are we still waiting for

:17:31.:17:34.

the full Brexit effect? There's been a record rise

:17:35.:17:37.

in suicides, assaults and self-harm And still to come:

to a new study by the Royal College of Paediatrics

and Child Health. Britain is ranked 15th out

:18:28.:18:29.

of 19 Western European countries on infant deaths

:18:30.:18:32.

health problems start Our health correspondent,

:18:37.:18:41.

Dominic Hughes has more details: What happens in the early years of

:18:42.:19:00.

childhood is crucial to our health in later life. But today's report

:19:01.:19:04.

into the state of children's health in the UK shows many children are at

:19:05.:19:08.

risk of missing out on the best start in life. And as these parents

:19:09.:19:14.

in Oldham know, it is not always easy. I think it is like the money

:19:15.:19:20.

side, there is so many single parents and it is children bringing

:19:21.:19:25.

up children. A lot of people who are unemployed don't seem to know about

:19:26.:19:31.

anything to do with child health. There is a lot of young mums that

:19:32.:19:35.

haven't got the support from their mum or haven't got a partner. That

:19:36.:19:41.

that situation and they don't know where to go for advice. Oldham is

:19:42.:19:48.

one of the most deprived towns in the UK and it is in such places that

:19:49.:19:53.

the health of children tr poorer families is at risk. The report

:19:54.:19:56.

shows when it comes to children's health the UK is falling behind

:19:57.:20:04.

other European nations. And it lays bare the impact that poverty can

:20:05.:20:08.

have. But the picture within the UK is extremely mixed. In Scotland, 19%

:20:09.:20:14.

of mothers smoke during pregnancy. The highest rate in the UK. 40% of

:20:15.:20:21.

children in England's most deprived areas are overweight or obese.

:20:22.:20:26.

Northern Ireland has the highest infant mortality rate. And in Wales,

:20:27.:20:32.

13% of 15-year-olds are reported to consume alcohol once a week. But

:20:33.:20:37.

poverty is the common factor. It blights in a number of ways, whether

:20:38.:20:42.

it is access to services, education, whether it is ability to live a

:20:43.:20:49.

healthier life. All of these things are much more manifest when you're

:20:50.:20:53.

poor. For those who work with families to improve children's

:20:54.:20:56.

health, part of the solution at least is simple. There is a role for

:20:57.:21:00.

education with young people before their pregnant, perhaps in schools,

:21:01.:21:06.

with teenagers. I don't think we have perhaps do enough there around

:21:07.:21:10.

preparation for parenthood and what it will be like to be a parent and

:21:11.:21:13.

what sort of parent they would like to be. All four Governments in the

:21:14.:21:18.

UK have welcomed the report and pledged to improve the prospects of

:21:19.:21:21.

next generation. The Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn,

Pienaar is in Westminster for us. So this Brexit bill, will it get

:21:36.:21:49.

through? Well, this, the Government's plan has had to change.

:21:50.:21:54.

Theresa May hope's to start the EU divorce without having to get the

:21:55.:21:59.

nod from Parliament. But she lost the fight in the courts and we have

:22:00.:22:03.

this, which gives Theresa May the right to start negotiations at a

:22:04.:22:08.

time of her choosing. Will it get through? Very comfortably. Most MPs

:22:09.:22:16.

don't feel they can defy the referendum and Jeremy Corbyn has

:22:17.:22:21.

been telling his MPs they have to vote with the Government. They have

:22:22.:22:24.

got to go with the referendum result. So it does look as if

:22:25.:22:27.

Theresa May at this stage will get her way. That is causing Labour some

:22:28.:22:34.

big problems isn't it? Yes, we always used to see the Conservative

:22:35.:22:40.

Party as the party with the fault line on Europe. And Labour has the

:22:41.:22:48.

fault line as big. Labour MPs represent areas where people want to

:22:49.:22:52.

leave and Jeremy Corbyn has asked his MPs to vote in favour of the

:22:53.:22:57.

talks, but one has resigned and others will again vote against the

:22:58.:23:01.

bill and he will have to decide whether to sack them. It is a

:23:02.:23:06.

dilemma. A choice between tolerance and accepting the differences in the

party or enforcing discipline. But ministers can be confident or at

Anglesey. But this is Norfolk. Look at this grey picture and it was

bitterly cold. The sunshine shone not just in north-west Wales, but in

Scotland. Minus two in East Anglia under that continental cloud and

:27:06.:27:13.

that cloud is moving north-west, tending to diminish and allowing the

:27:14.:27:17.

frost to form. There will be some hill fog across the Pennines, the

:27:18.:27:23.

Peak District and the Welsh mountains. These are the city

:27:24.:27:29.

temperatures. And there will be some drizzle and even some snow,

:27:30.:27:33.

particularly in central and eastern areas and that means it will be icy.

:27:34.:27:40.

You can see the change in Northern Ireland, a weather front, yes, a

cold and frosty morning, not so much in Northern Ireland and the South

West. But there could be some slippery conditions tomorrow morning
