Theresa May at the White House for talks with Donald Trump.

It's a great honour to have Winston Churchill back. Thank you, Mr

to the BBC News at Six. Within the last hour, Theresa May

:01:43.:01:45.

has arrived at the White House, the first foreign leader to meet

:01:46.:01:50.

President Trump since Top of the agenda, securing a trade

:01:51.:01:52.

deal for Britain and renewing the "special relationship"

:01:53.:01:56.

between the UK and the US. Mr Trump has previously said

:01:57.:01:59.

he's open to a "fair" and speedy deal with the UK,

:02:00.:02:01.

but has also warned he'll "terminate" agreements with 30 days'

:02:02.:02:04.

notice if he doesn't like them. The two leaders are about to

:02:05.:02:06.

give a news conference. But first, here's Laura

:02:07.:02:12.

Kuenssberg on today's visit. The Prime Minister knows that

:02:13.:02:16.

everyone is paying attention. The first foreign leader

that risk and that opportunity. Respect, that's what

good friendships need. The Prime Minister showing Britain's

between Britain and the US, both, so changed by politics in just

a few short months. But will America respect her

:03:00.:03:05.

as she urges the new President not As you renew your nation,

:03:06.:03:08.

just as we renew ours, we have the opportunity,

:03:09.:03:14.

indeed the responsibility, to renew the special

:03:15.:03:18.

relationship for this new age. We have the opportunity

:03:19.:03:24.

to lead together again. She warned against repeating

:03:25.:03:29.

the mistakes of British and American Ministers insist it doesn't mean

:03:30.:03:32.

she'd never send in the troops. She's said now that in future

:03:33.:03:37.

we will only intervene where the threat is real,

:03:38.:03:40.

a threat of terrorism to our own streets, for example,

:03:41.:03:44.

where there is a British interest at stake, or where our Allies

:03:45.:03:47.

call on us to help. So there aren't going to be any

:03:48.:03:50.

more foreign adventures. But do her suggestions

:03:51.:03:54.

weaken the force of It is all about America first,

:03:55.:03:56.

which of course is the 1930s movement to separate America

:03:57.:04:03.

from the rest of the world. The last thing we want to do

:04:04.:04:05.

is to encourage him What we should be doing

:04:06.:04:08.

is encouraging him to support Nato, to say he will defend

:04:09.:04:11.

all the countries of I think if she could

:04:12.:04:13.

do that in her visit, The Prime Minister's

:04:14.:04:17.

offering friendship, too, in the hope, in part, of doing

:04:18.:04:21.

a trade deal and doing one fast. How seriously, though,

:04:22.:04:24.

does the wheeling, dealing President We want to deal with the ones that

:04:25.:04:26.

treat us well and if they don't treat us well, we terminate

:04:27.:04:33.

or we give them a 30-day notice of termination and then they come

:04:34.:04:37.

back and they want to renegotiate during that 30 days

:04:38.:04:39.

and we get a better deal. This visit to the Trump White House

:04:40.:04:43.

is more about trade It is about how the President

:04:44.:04:45.

and the Prime Minister can work together as individuals,

:04:46.:04:52.

as politicians and how Theresa May can handle the most unorthodox

:04:53.:04:56.

President in decades. These first conversations,

:04:57.:05:03.

these first historic moments. It is a great honour to have

:05:04.:05:07.

Winston Churchill back. A relationship that matters not just

:05:08.:05:14.

to her success, but to us all. Laura Kuenssberg,

:05:15.:05:18.

BBC News, Washington. As we've heard, one of the main

:05:19.:05:25.

reasons for the Prime Minister's visit to the White House is trade,

:05:26.:05:28.

sounding out President Trump on the possibility of a deal to help

:05:29.:05:30.

soften the impact of leaving It is Britain's largest export

:05:31.:05:49.

market outside the EU. We send America everything from whiskey to

:05:50.:05:54.

airport engines, pharmaceuticals to banking services. And unlike our

:05:55.:05:57.

trading relationships with other countries, we sell more to the US

:05:58.:06:02.

than they do to us, creating an economically positive trade surplus.

:06:03.:06:07.

So, let's look at some of the numbers. In 2015, Britain exported

:06:08.:06:13.

goods and services worth ?100 billion to the US. That is 20% of

:06:14.:06:20.

Britain's total exports. That is substantial, but still under half

:06:21.:06:24.

the goods and services we sold to the European Union. They are valued

:06:25.:06:32.

at ?222 billion. And that is over 40% of our total exports. America

:06:33.:06:37.

might be smaller, but it is still vital, and many companies are

:06:38.:06:40.

relishing the prospect of doing more business across the Atlantic. Lance

:06:41.:06:46.

Foreman's family have run this smoked salmon business in east

:06:47.:06:50.

London form or than a century, and trading with America for 50-year is.

:06:51.:06:55.

Demand from the US is increasing, and a new trade deal could boost

:06:56.:07:01.

sales. If we don't have too pay the 5% tariff on importing smoked salmon

:07:02.:07:06.

to the USA, that makes us more competitive. Secondly, there are

:07:07.:07:10.

regulations. We can't produce smoked salmon in the same way when we

:07:11.:07:14.

export to the USA as we do when we sell it in the UK. If we can

:07:15.:07:18.

harmonise that, it will make it more efficient and a better product for

:07:19.:07:23.

American consumers. Despite the political will, there are hurdles.

:07:24.:07:27.

The EU says Britain cannot the gauche eight new trade deals until

:07:28.:07:31.

it has officially completed Brexit, which could take at least two years.

:07:32.:07:36.

There are likely to be clashes with America over issues like safety

:07:37.:07:40.

regulations for cars and food. America is a much bigger economy.

:07:41.:07:44.

Could UK industries like farming be overwhelmed by new, cheap imports?

:07:45.:07:51.

Trump is looking to improve the lot of American workers, increase

:07:52.:07:57.

American jobs and wages. So the increase in American exports is the

:07:58.:08:01.

only thing he is interested in, not increases in British exports. The

:08:02.:08:06.

Brits will have to work hard to get those improvements, especially if

:08:07.:08:09.

they want to do the agreement quickly. It's going to be only

:08:10.:08:18.

America first. America first. The new man in the White House has made

:08:19.:08:23.

clear he wants to rip up the present trade rule book, create his own

:08:24.:08:27.

rules, and then play by them. Both sides agree they want a deal, but

:08:28.:08:32.

Theresa May could well be in for a bumpy free-trade ride. Kamal Ahmed,

:08:33.:08:33.

BBC News. Let's go to the White House and Jon

:08:34.:08:43.

Sopel. How important is this meeting for Mrs May and Mr Trump? It's very

:08:44.:08:50.

important for postal -- both of them. The journalists have gathered,

:08:51.:08:53.

waiting for the news conference, where we will hear more of the

:08:54.:08:57.

discussions they had. It is important for Theresa May on two

:08:58.:09:03.

levels. We heard the importance of a trade deal favourable for Britain.

:09:04.:09:07.

If Britain is to be a sovereign nation, trading in the world, a deal

:09:08.:09:12.

with America is vital. To get off to good start and have a good

:09:13.:09:15.

relationship with Donald Trump, a deal-maker by nature, that is a

:09:16.:09:23.

hugely important thing, to build a good rap with him. It is also

:09:24.:09:26.

important on a wider level. One cannot exaggerate the extent to

:09:27.:09:29.

which, as the first foreign leader to meet the new President of

:09:30.:09:32.

America, who has very little experience in foreign affairs, this

:09:33.:09:37.

is a chance may to affect his thinking, the way he sees the world

:09:38.:09:42.

globally. Yesterday, she set out various issues where there were

:09:43.:09:46.

differences, on Russia, on the Iran nuclear deal, on free trade, on

:09:47.:09:51.

Nato. If she can have an influence on some of his thinking and leave

:09:52.:09:54.

Washington having done that, she will think it is a job well done.

:09:55.:10:00.

Donald Trump also wants to show that you can do bilateral trade deals. It

:10:01.:10:06.

is not about the big deals, which he doesn't like. He wants to do one-off

:10:07.:10:11.

deals and a good relationship with Britain will help him achieve that.

:10:12.:10:15.

The boss of a haulage firm and a mechanic

:10:16.:10:18.

have been sent to prison for the manslaughter of four people

:10:19.:10:20.

who were killed when a tipper truck with faulty brakes ran out

:10:21.:10:23.

of control and crashed in Bath last year.

:10:24.:10:25.

Matthew Gordon was jailed for seven years and Peter Wood for five years.

:10:26.:10:28.

The families of their victims, who included a four-year-old girl,

:10:29.:10:31.

told the court about the impact the crash had had on their lives,

:10:32.:10:34.

They lost their lives in a matter of seconds.

:10:35.:10:37.

Four-year-old Mitzi Steady, chauffeur, Stephen Vaughn

:10:38.:10:40.

and businessmen Philip Allen and Robert Parker, killed

:10:41.:10:44.

Its brakes had failed while coming down a steep hill

:10:45.:10:50.

After seeing these pictures of the rusty brakes,

:10:51.:10:55.

the judge said today that the vehicle was in

:10:56.:10:57.

"an appallingly bad state and should not have been on the road."

:10:58.:11:01.

Matthew Gordon, on the left, who ran Grittenhan Haulage,

:11:02.:11:03.

Mechanic, Peter Wood, was jailed for five years.

:11:04.:11:09.

The judge said they had a "cavalier attitude to safety."

:11:10.:11:13.

Every element of this company was rotten to its core.

:11:14.:11:15.

Potentially there are other companies out there at the moment

:11:16.:11:18.

that perhaps ought to be looking looking at the way they maintain

:11:19.:11:21.

service and run their companies, of a similar vein.

:11:22.:11:23.

Grieving relatives told the judge about the impact on their lives.

:11:24.:11:25.

Emmajade Steady said the death of her four-year-old daughter,

:11:26.:11:29.

Mitzi, had left her bereft and struggling to go on.

:11:30.:11:34.

The little girl's grandmother, who was also hit by the truck,

:11:35.:11:36.

needed to have both her legs amputated.

:11:37.:11:39.

She described the physical and emotional pain she

:11:40.:11:41.

Sian Vaughn, in the grey coat here, wept in court as she talked

:11:42.:11:48.

about having to identify her husband's body.

:11:49.:11:52.

She said as she held his hand, she'd played songs that they'd only

:11:53.:11:55.

had at their wedding six months earlier.

:11:56.:11:59.

Having to spend your first wedding anniversary alone was just so far

:12:00.:12:02.

It's just been absolutely horrendous.

:12:03.:12:11.

The judge said Matthew Gordon had put lives at risk

:12:12.:12:14.

He said the failures of the company boss

:12:15.:12:19.

As the two men were taken to prison, the judge said this had devastated

:12:20.:12:25.

the families not just of the four victims but had devastated

:12:26.:12:28.

Jon Kay BBC News, Bristol Crown Court.

:12:29.:12:45.

While we have been on air, President Trump and Mrs May have been holding

:12:46.:12:53.

a news conference. The elation chip has never been stronger. Both

:12:54.:12:57.

America and Britain understand that governments must be responsive to

:12:58.:13:03.

everyday working people, that governments must represent their own

:13:04.:13:10.

citizens. Madam Prime Minister, we look forward to working closely with

:13:11.:13:17.

you as Weise trike -- strengthen our mutual ties in commerce, business

:13:18.:13:23.

and foreign affairs. Great days lie ahead for our two peoples and our

:13:24.:13:27.

countries. Under half of our nation, I thank you for joining us here

:13:28.:13:34.

today. It's a really great honour. Thank you very much. Well, thank you

:13:35.:13:39.

very much, Mr President, and can I start by saying I am so pleased that

:13:40.:13:44.

I have been able to be here today, and thank you for inviting me so

:13:45.:13:48.

soon after your inauguration. I am delighted to be able to congratulate

:13:49.:13:51.

you on what was a stunning election victory. And as you say, the

:13:52.:13:57.

indication is an indication of the strength and importance of the

:13:58.:14:01.

special relationship that exists between our countries, a

:14:02.:14:04.

relationship based on the bonds of history, family, kinship and common

:14:05.:14:09.

interests. Enough -- in a further sign of the importance of that

:14:10.:14:13.

relationship, I have been able to convey Her Majesty The Queen's hope

:14:14.:14:16.

that President Trump and the first Lady would pay a state visit to the

:14:17.:14:21.

United Kingdom later this year, and I'm delighted that the President has

:14:22.:14:25.

accepted that invitation. Today, we were discussing a number of topics

:14:26.:14:29.

and there is much on which we agree. The President mentioned foreign

:14:30.:14:33.

policy. We are discussing how we can work even more closely together to

:14:34.:14:39.

take on and defeat Ayyash and the ideology of Islamic extremism

:14:40.:14:42.

wherever it is found. Our macro -- our two nations are already making

:14:43.:14:49.

progress, but we need to redouble our efforts. We are discussing how

:14:50.:14:53.

we can do this by deepening intelligence and security

:14:54.:14:55.

cooperation, and critically by stepping up our efforts in

:14:56.:15:00.

cyberspace. Because we know we will not eradicate this threat until we

:15:01.:15:03.

defeat the idea, the ideology that lies behind it. Our talks will be

:15:04.:15:09.

continuing later and I'm sure we will discuss other topics, Syria and

:15:10.:15:14.

Russia. On defence and security cooperation, we are united in our

:15:15.:15:18.

recognition of Nato as the ball walk of our collective defence and we

:15:19.:15:22.

have reaffirmed our unshakeable commitment to this alliance. You

:15:23.:15:27.

confirmed you are 100% behind Nato. But we are also discussing the

:15:28.:15:31.

importance of Nato continuing to ensure it is as equipped to fight --

:15:32.:15:36.

to fight terrorism and cyber warfare as conventional forms of war. I have

:15:37.:15:41.

agreed to continue my efforts to encourage fellow European leaders to

:15:42.:15:45.

deliver on their commitments to spend 2% of their GDP on defence so

:15:46.:15:50.

the burden is more fairly shared. It is only by investing properly in our

:15:51.:15:54.

defence that we ensure we are properly equipped to face our shared

:15:55.:15:59.

challengers. Finally, the President and I have mentioned future economic

:16:00.:16:03.

Corporation and trade. Trade between our countries is already worth over

:16:04.:16:09.

?150 billion per year. The US is the single biggest source of inward

:16:10.:16:13.

investment to the UK and together we have around $1 trillion invested in

:16:14.:16:18.

each other's economies. And our defence relationship is the

:16:19.:16:22.

broadest, deepest and most advanced of any two countries sharing

:16:23.:16:26.

military hardware and expertise. We are ambitious to build on this

:16:27.:16:30.

relationship in order to grow our respective economies, provide high

:16:31.:16:34.

skilled, high-paid jobs of the future for working people across

:16:35.:16:38.

America and the UK. And so we are discussing how we can establish

:16:39.:16:44.

trade negotiation agreement, take forward immediate high-level talks,

:16:45.:16:48.

lay groundwork for a US- UK trade agreement and identify practical

:16:49.:16:52.

steps to take now to enable companies in both countries to trade

:16:53.:16:55.

and do business with one another more easily. I am convinced a trade

:16:56.:17:01.

deal between the US and UK... That is Theresa May at the White House

:17:02.:17:06.

after her meeting with President Trump. They have been talking trade,

:17:07.:17:11.

which was top of the agenda. She just said there are no details about

:17:12.:17:15.

a deal but they have discussed economic Corporation and laying the

:17:16.:17:16.

groundwork for a future deal. Our top story: As you have heard,

:17:17.:17:28.

Theresa May is holding a press conference with Donald Trump at the

:17:29.:17:31.

White House. We will bring you more on that later in the programme.

After three years of discussions, an influential report

:17:48.:18:03.

from within the Church of England has concluded it should continue

:18:04.:18:05.

It has also suggested all potential clergy - straight or gay -

:18:06.:18:12.

be asked about their sexual conduct and their lifestyle.

:18:13.:18:14.

It acknowledged the report could cause "serious

:18:15.:18:16.

Here's our Religious Affairs Correspondent Martin Bashir.

:18:17.:18:28.

Two men are married in an Anglican Church.

:18:29.:18:30.

But it's in the United States and won't be happening here.

:18:31.:18:33.

After three years of so-called shared conversations,

:18:34.:18:36.

the Church of England has asserted that marriage can only be

:18:37.:18:39.

The Bishop behind today's report says that while the doctrine

:18:40.:18:48.

of marriage remains the same, the Church must change its tone.

:18:49.:18:55.

Our test is to uphold the Gospel and the scriptures

:18:56.:18:57.

and the tradition as we have received it

:18:58.:19:00.

but also to make sure that this is a Church

:19:01.:19:03.

in which all lesbian and gay people, who are made in the image

:19:04.:19:08.

and likeness of God, like everyone else, are welcome

:19:09.:19:10.

But lesbian and gay members of the Church have reacted

:19:11.:19:16.

accusing the bishops of doing nothing to acknowledge the goodness

:19:17.:19:21.

or sanctity of lesbian, gay, bisexual and

:19:22.:19:25.

and the gay community did so over a three-year period and we were told

:19:26.:19:35.

in that process, privately, if we did this, then we would see

:19:36.:19:37.

change and none of that has been honoured.

:19:38.:19:39.

I think that's a failure of leadership and a failure of duty.

:19:40.:19:44.

Conservative evangelicals, however, have expressed relief

:19:45.:19:49.

that the bishops have uphold the authority of scripture, against

:19:50.:19:52.

I want the Church to stand with the teaching of Jesus

:19:53.:20:03.

and my understanding is Jesus taught very clearly that sex

:20:04.:20:05.

is for marriage and marriage is between a man and a woman.

:20:06.:20:08.

So, I want the Church to continue to teach what Jesus

:20:09.:20:11.

taught on that issue, to try and find ways

:20:12.:20:13.

of commending that lovingly to the world around us.

:20:14.:20:15.

The publication of today's report, while unequivocal on the subject

:20:16.:20:19.

In just over two weeks' time, General Synod will convene

:20:20.:20:27.

and while the bishops have called for a more respectful

:20:28.:20:29.

and considerate tone, the debate is likely to be

:20:30.:20:31.

Plans to cut knee and hip replacement operations

:20:32.:20:48.

in Worcestershire have been described as alarming

:20:49.:20:50.

Three commissioning groups in the county say very obese

:20:51.:20:54.

patients, and those who are in only moderate pain, will not

:20:55.:20:57.

They say the plan will save ?2 million a year, but is it fair?

:20:58.:21:01.

He's due to have a hip operation which would make his job

:21:02.:21:06.

as a tour guide much easier, but Gordon has been waiting more

:21:07.:21:09.

than six months with no sign of an appointment yet.

:21:10.:21:11.

His experience shows how debilitating a long wait

:21:12.:21:15.

Occasionally, I will wake up and you try to move and it's

:21:16.:21:21.

It's one way of getting relief on it.

:21:22.:21:30.

It's certainly affecting my daily life.

:21:31.:21:33.

In Gordon's local area in Worcestershire, the NHS will be

:21:34.:21:35.

tightening the criteria, making it even more difficult

:21:36.:21:37.

A scoring system based on a questionnaire by patients

:21:38.:21:43.

will be used to assess who needs surgery.

:21:44.:21:45.

In effect, they have to be in more pain, or less

:21:46.:21:48.

mobile than they currently would, to qualify.

:21:49.:21:52.

But senior doctors say the policy is unfair on patients.

:21:53.:21:54.

The decision to operate should be done by the surgeon and the GP,

:21:55.:21:58.

because they are the person who is best for the patient,

:21:59.:22:05.

not a bureaucratic system, which is designed purely to limit

:22:06.:22:07.

the expenditure on the health service.

:22:08.:22:13.

It is not the first time local commissioning groups in England have

:22:14.:22:16.

The three groups in Worcestershire have followed one in Shropshire

:22:17.:22:19.

Vale of York and Harrogate have announced restrictions

:22:20.:22:25.

on all surgery for some, unless they lose weight,

:22:26.:22:30.

and another trend that's been seen is cuts in IVF treatment, including

:22:31.:22:33.

in mid and North East Essex and South East Norfolk.

:22:34.:22:36.

The finances in the NHS are constrained and demand is rising.

:22:37.:22:40.

And so in that environment we have to make some difficult decisions

:22:41.:22:43.

We have to prioritise services where patients

:22:44.:22:49.

will get the most benefit, and we have to make

:22:50.:22:52.

sure we get the best for the NHS pound in our area.

:22:53.:22:56.

This comes at a time when there have been calls for a cross-party

:22:57.:23:00.

and public debate on the future of the NHS in England.

:23:01.:23:02.

The key question is, should the NHS continue

:23:03.:23:05.

with the funding already allocated, even if it means possible

:23:06.:23:08.

cuts to some services, or does it need new funding to bring

:23:09.:23:11.

it in line with health spending in some other

:23:12.:23:13.

The Welsh government said there were no financial

:23:14.:23:19.

Scotland is investing more in specialist centres,

:23:20.:23:24.

but around the UK, the debate on the best use of resources

:23:25.:23:27.

Last summer he became the first Northern Irish boxer to win world

:23:28.:23:40.

championships in two different weight classes.

:23:41.:23:41.

And this weekend Carl Frampton defends his WBA featherweight

:23:42.:23:43.

Sport can sometimes increase divisions in Northern Ireland,

:23:44.:23:46.

but Frampton has made his name by uniting his fans.

:23:47.:23:49.

And thousands have made the journey to Vegas to see the fight,

:23:50.:23:52.

The man they call the Jackal made history by becoming

:23:53.:23:58.

Northern Ireland's first two-weight World Champion.

:23:59.:24:15.

Thousands have made the journey to see Carl Frampton fight

:24:16.:24:21.

in Las Vegas this weekend and it's on both sides of the Atlantic that

:24:22.:24:24.

he's building a reputation of one of boxing's best.

:24:25.:24:32.

There's not too many guys from the UK can top

:24:33.:24:35.

I have the crowd that watch me back home but to come half

:24:36.:24:39.

way across the world, this is special.

:24:40.:24:41.

This is absolutely special for me and I'm very,

:24:42.:24:43.

Tomorrow night's bout is a rematch against Leo Santa Cruz.

:24:44.:24:46.

Frampton won the WBA featherweight title in the first encounter -

:24:47.:24:49.

a close battle that was seen by many as one of last year's best fights.

:24:50.:24:52.

The sequel is being heavily-promoted in the US.

:24:53.:24:58.

But thousands of miles away in Belfast, Carl Frampton's face

:24:59.:25:02.

has been on the walls for a very long time.

:25:03.:25:06.

This is where it all began, the Midland Boxing Club

:25:07.:25:10.

and there are feet here looking to follow in Frampton's steps.

:25:11.:25:14.

He's been the inspiration since I started boxing.

:25:15.:25:17.

It's just everything he does, I just love the way he boxes.

:25:18.:25:25.

Carl Frampton's from here in Tiger's Bay, a working class,

:25:26.:25:29.

However, he receives a huge amount of cross-community support

:25:30.:25:34.

and boxing is a sport that has a history of uniting here.

:25:35.:25:42.

Barry McGuigan made his name ignoring Northern Ireland's politics

:25:43.:25:44.

He now manages Carl Frampton, a protestant, who's

:25:45.:25:50.

He is similar to me, a mixed marriage and all of that.

:25:51.:25:55.

We don't play national anthems, we don't need it.

:25:56.:25:59.

And it is Frampton's attitude outside of the ring,

:26:00.:26:04.

as well as his ability inside it, that's helping to inspire people

:26:05.:26:07.

Let's have a look at the weather with Helen Willets.

:26:08.:26:26.

It is getting milder. We still have a little bit of frost. That's been

:26:27.:26:29.

the story for a couple of weeks. Dry, cold, frosty weather. There is

:26:30.:26:36.

still some pockets of frost around. This is Sheffield. Some icicals in

:26:37.:26:44.

the Highlands. But some sunshine but late in the day the sunshine is in

:26:45.:26:48.

short supply. We are picking up milder Atlantic air and with it

:26:49.:26:51.

comes cloud. We have had rain moving up from the south. Rain moving in

:26:52.:26:55.

from the west. Now, it will still be of a wintry nature across the

:26:56.:26:59.

northern half of the country, falling on to frozen surfaces. So

:27:00.:27:03.

although it is not as frosty for Northern Ireland, perhaps Scotland,

:27:04.:27:05.

even northern England there is a risk of ice and hill fog tomorrow

:27:06.:27:09.

morning. Not a great start to our Saturday, it has to be said but an

:27:10.:27:14.

improving picture brightness-wise from the west and a few showers to

:27:15.:27:18.

come but in the east it could stay grey for much of the day. Even with

:27:19.:27:22.

brighter skies, it is not that warm, 7s and 8s but doing better than we

:27:23.:27:26.

have done. The showers could be heavy initially in western areas,

:27:27.:27:30.

petering out further east but notice still an element of snow over the

:27:31.:27:33.

hills even in the brighter regime towards the west, still cold. It is

:27:34.:27:37.

January, afterall, for some snow. That weather system and showers move

:27:38.:27:40.

out of the way. There is a question mark over the second half of the

:27:41.:27:44.

weekend. How far north is this rain going to come? At the moment, and

:27:45.:27:50.

consistently it looks as if Scotland will get away with a dry and bright

:27:51.:27:55.

Sunday. Northern Ireland it looks and northern England, the Midlands,

:27:56.:27:58.

East Anglia, they are sun certain for rain but in the balance they are

:27:59.:28:03.

getting rain at the moment and south of the M4 it'll be wet and windy.

:28:04.:28:07.

Our first spell of wet and windy weather for sometime. So there is a

:28:08.:28:11.

bit of sun certainty, so if you have plans, stay tuned.

:28:12.:28:15.

A reminder of the main story now. While we have been on air, Theresa

:28:16.:28:19.

May and Donald Trump have been holding a live news conference. You

:28:20.:28:22.

can see the pictures now. They have been talking about the special

:28:23.:28:25.

relationship, trade, security and defence and Mrs May has extended an

:28:26.:28:28.

invitation from the Queen to Donald Trump to come to the UK on a state

:28:29.:28:32.

visit later this year, which he has accepted.

:28:33.:28:37.

There is continuing coverages of the May-Trump press conference on the

:28:38.:28:44.

BBC News Channel.

:28:45.:28:45.
