Oxfam's deputy chief

executive has resigned,

0:00:060:00:08

over the scandal surrounding aid

workers using prostitutes in Haiti.

0:00:080:00:14

Penny Lawrence stepped down

following allegations the charity

0:00:140:00:16

failed to reveal the full details

of what happened seven years ago.

0:00:160:00:23

One former Oxfam aid worker in Haiti

says claims of sexual

0:00:230:00:25

misconduct were well known.

0:00:250:00:29

There was a lot of rumours

on the ground, about management

0:00:290:00:31

and leaders exploiting the locals,

sexually and in ways.

0:00:310:00:35

and leaders exploiting the locals,

sexually and in other ways.

0:00:350:00:43

Charity's bosses have been meeting

the International Development

0:00:460:00:50

Secretary

0:00:500:00:55

Secretary today, amid fears the

Government funding may be cut

0:00:550:00:58

because of the scandal.

Also on the programme:

0:01:000:01:02

Three Britons killed

in a helicopter crash

0:01:020:01:03

in the Grand Canyon have been named.

0:01:030:01:05

They were Stuart Hill,

Becky Dobson, and Jason Hill.

0:01:050:01:07

Three other Britons

and the pilot were also injured.

0:01:070:01:09

It's not known what

caused the crash.

0:01:090:01:11

Theresa May is in Northern Ireland,

amid hopes of a new power sharing

0:01:110:01:14

agreement at Stormont.

0:01:140:01:15

We report from Tunisia, where UK

tourist flights will resume,

0:01:150:01:18

after the terror attack in 2015 that

killed 30 Britons.

0:01:180:01:25

And there's more weather trouble

at the Winter Olympics.

0:01:250:01:27

This time it's high

winds causing the chaos.

0:01:270:01:32

And coming up in Sportsday, seven

golds awarded in

0:01:320:01:46

golds awarded in Pyeongchang, but

the hopeful only manages to get a

bronze...

0:01:500:01:52

-- but the third female skater

to complete a triple

0:02:070:02:09

axel in Games history only

manages to get a bronze.

0:02:090:02:12

Good evening, and welcome

to the BBC News at Six.

0:02:120:02:14

The deputy chief executive

of Oxfam has resigned,

0:02:140:02:16

following allegations the charity

tried to cover up the full details

0:02:160:02:18

of a sex scandal in Haiti,

involving its aid workers.

0:02:180:02:21

Senior figures in the organisation,

have been meeting the International

0:02:210:02:23

Development Secretary,

after the Government threatened

0:02:230:02:25

to cut millions of pounds of funding

over the controversy.

0:02:250:02:27

The charity has been asked

to produce all its evidence relating

0:02:270:02:35

to what happened with some aid

workers after the Haitian

0:02:440:02:46

earthquake in 2010.

0:02:460:02:48

Our special correspondent

Lucy Manning has the details.

0:02:480:02:49

The allegations that the team knew,

about prostitutes being used not

0:02:490:02:53

just in Haiti, but in Chad, with

nothing done. She worked in human

0:02:530:03:01

resources in Haiti for Oxfam for two

and a half years, says she flagged

0:03:010:03:06

concerns and was ignored.

There was

a lot of rumours on the ground about

0:03:060:03:12

management and leaders exploiting

the locals, sexually and in other

0:03:120:03:18

ways, to get jobs, and to have good

standing. These were ongoing rumours

0:03:180:03:27

that would come to me through the

drivers and others. On many

0:03:270:03:34

occasions I would share those

rumours with my boss.

Now Oxfam's

0:03:340:03:41

Deputy Chief Executive has resigned.

Penny Lawrence was programme

0:03:410:03:46

director whether prostitution

allegations were made and ignored.

0:03:460:03:49

She said, "I am ashamed that

happened on my watch and I take the

0:03:490:03:53

responsibility." The

0:03:530:03:59

responsibility." The actions of

their director in Chad and arrow-mac

0:04:000:04:06

were never properly dealt with.

Bringing Oxfam into disrepute, Enda

0:04:060:04:11

Kenny wait abusing people who may

have been beneficiaries... There was

0:04:110:04:17

a discussion of how the organisation

should respond, but we didn't act on

0:04:170:04:23

it, and more significantly, because

there were not formal complaints, we

0:04:230:04:26

allowed him to move on to another

post, and that was our failing.

0:04:260:04:32

Oxfam's bosses were called in to

meet ministers this morning with

0:04:320:04:36

questions over the £32 million the

charity receives from the

0:04:360:04:40

Government. Ministers here at the

Department for International

0:04:400:04:43

Development no British charities do

good work overseas, but with Oxfam

0:04:430:04:48

half the story of what happened with

its staff in Haiti it has now put

0:04:480:04:53

pressure on the entire charity

sector. Oxfam says it investigated

0:04:530:04:59

87 allegations of sexual abuse or

exploitation last year, and Save the

0:04:590:05:06

Children looked into 31 cases of

misconduct. Christian Aide said it

0:05:060:05:12

had two cases, one of which was

reported to the Charity commission.

0:05:120:05:15

I don't think anyone can see in good

faith operating in an environment

0:05:150:05:19

like ours, that we can eliminate all

risk as a matter of 100% certainty.

0:05:190:05:25

What we can do is put on 100% best

effort to keep these people out of

0:05:250:05:30

our organisation.

The Charity

commission says it receives reports

0:05:300:05:37

of about 1000 incidents involving

safeguarding from charities each

0:05:370:05:41

year, but a culture of cover-up, not

the image charities want.

0:05:410:05:49

the image charities want. Lucy, how

damaging is this whole affair, not

0:05:490:05:52

just a Oxfam but the aid sector in

general?

Starting with Oxfam the

0:05:520:05:57

resignations following this really

don't look good. Allegations of

0:05:570:06:00

staff using prostitutes in Chad,

nothing done, then those staff

0:06:000:06:04

members are allowed to go and work

in Haiti, more allegations, some of

0:06:040:06:08

them allowed to just resign and get

other jobs, and the full details not

0:06:080:06:12

passed on either to the authorities

in Haiti or in the UK, and the chief

0:06:120:06:18

executive of Oxfam admitting

0:06:180:06:28

today that the disclosures you heard

from that woman in my report, who

0:06:310:06:32

said she raised them, they should

have been listened to, and what we

0:06:320:06:35

have had from him is an acceptance

that although we have at this

0:06:350:06:38

resignation from the Deputy Chief

Executive, that he will also go

0:06:380:06:40

Oxfam think he can't deal with this

issue. In the last few minutes from

0:06:400:06:43

the Government we have had details

of the meeting they had with Oxfam

0:06:430:06:45

today. A new unit is being set up

that charities will have to do

0:06:450:06:48

better, and also the Secretary of

State Penny Mordaunt has written to

0:06:480:06:50

all the charities telling them they

must refer all these allegations to

0:06:500:06:53

the relevant authorities.

Lucy

Manning, many thanks.

0:06:530:06:57

Three British tourists killed

in a helicopter crash

0:06:570:06:59

in the Grand Canyon,

have been named

0:06:590:07:01

by police in America.

0:07:010:07:04

Becky Dobson, Jason Hill

and Stuart Hill, died

0:07:040:07:06

on Saturday evening.

0:07:060:07:07

Three other Britons,

and the pilot, were injured.

0:07:070:07:09

Our North America correspondent

James Cook reports.

0:07:090:07:16

This is the moment a dream holiday

for three British couples turned

0:07:160:07:20

into a nightmare. The helicopter

came down just before sunset in

0:07:200:07:26

rugged terrain near the West rim of

the Grand Canyon. Explosions and

0:07:260:07:30

fire followed with three passengers

apparently trapped inside. They were

0:07:300:07:36

Stuart Hill, celebrating his 30th

birthday, and his girlfriend, Becky

0:07:360:07:41

Dobson, a receptionist from Worthing

in West Sussex. She was 27. His

0:07:410:07:46

brother Jason Hill who was a lawyer

in Milton Keynes also died. He was

0:07:460:07:50

32 years old. His girlfriend,

Jennifer Barham, survived. Also on

0:07:500:07:54

board were newlyweds Jonathan Udall

and Ellie Milward, seen here on the

0:07:540:08:00

left at their wedding with Becky and

Stuart. They had been saving up for

0:08:000:08:06

their holiday for a year and three

who died had been attending Worthing

0:08:060:08:12

College.

They had gone with their

passions to enjoy their young lives,

0:08:120:08:16

going through their careers as they

had wanted, to get to this stage in

0:08:160:08:20

their live and die so young, it is

just devastating.

In the minutes

0:08:200:08:24

after the crash passengers and crew

from other helicopters in the area

0:08:240:08:27

rushed to help. They included a

nurse.

When we finally got some

0:08:270:08:33

medical equipment down there I

started helping with putting in IV

0:08:330:08:38

lines, then another crew came with

medication, so I started

0:08:380:08:41

administering that, give them fluids

to help prevent them from going into

0:08:410:08:44

shock, kept a really close eye on

them and did what I could do.

A dust

0:08:440:08:49

storm meant rescue teams had to walk

to the site using night vision

0:08:490:08:56

goggles. It was more than eight

hours before they could be taken to

0:08:560:09:00

hospital.

We could not extract

everybody from the crash site until

0:09:000:09:03

two o'clock this morning. High

winds, rugged terrain, and as you

0:09:030:09:08

know, when you fly in treacherous

conditions like this, you have to

0:09:080:09:11

have special training and special

people.

The Grand Canyon is

0:09:110:09:16

attractive because it is untamed,

drawing visitors from all over the

0:09:160:09:20

world. The tour

0:09:200:09:25

world. The tour company Papillon,

Airways, flight every year and this

0:09:260:09:30

crash is the firm's second fatal

accident here. The three British

0:09:300:09:35

survivors and the pilot are being

treated at this hospital in Las

0:09:350:09:38

Vegas. All four are said to be in

critical condition. The cause of the

0:09:380:09:43

crash in the canyon, and the deadly

fire, is not yet known.

0:09:430:09:47

And we can speak to James

Cook in Las Vegas now.

0:09:470:09:50

More details are emerging about the

victims?

Yes, that's right. Some

0:09:500:09:56

pretty heartbreaking tributes being

paid to these victims. Becky

0:09:560:10:01

Dobson's Father Peter for example

said his daughter was full of life

0:10:010:10:04

and always happy. Her friends speak

about our beautiful person who loved

0:10:040:10:09

animals and had a dream of becoming

a veterinary nurse. Friends of the

0:10:090:10:12

two brothers who died, Stuart and

Jason Hill have also been paying

0:10:120:10:18

tribute, describing them as popular

and great fun. As for here, the

0:10:180:10:22

survivors are still being treated in

this hospital for these very serious

0:10:220:10:27

injuries, but the focus at the crash

site, which is very remote, is on

0:10:270:10:32

what exactly happened, why this

helicopter crashed. It appears the

0:10:320:10:36

impact was survivable, so why did

the fire followed? Why were those

0:10:360:10:40

trapped unable to get out of that

helicopter? Questions for the tour

0:10:400:10:46

company, for the local authorities

which regulate that

0:10:460:10:53

which regulate that company as well,

and also perhaps questions for the

0:10:560:10:57

manufacturer of this helicopter.

OK,

James, many thanks. James Cook, live

0:10:570:11:00

in Las Vegas.

0:11:000:11:02

Theresa May and the Irish Prime

Minister have been meeting

0:11:020:11:04

Northern Ireland's political

leaders, amid speculation that

0:11:040:11:06

a deal to restore the devolved

government at Stormont

0:11:060:11:08

could be close.

0:11:080:11:09

But negotiations between

the Democratic Unionists

0:11:090:11:12

and Sinn Fein have stalled several

times in recent months

0:11:120:11:14

since the power sharing executive

collapsed more than a year ago.

0:11:140:11:17

Here's our Ireland

correspondent Chris Page.

0:11:170:11:23

His report contains some flash

photography.

0:11:230:11:30

The Prime Minister began her visit

to Belfast at a place

0:11:300:11:32

which was recently the scene

of an unexpected victory,

0:11:320:11:35

hundreds of jobs had been under

threat at the aircraft manufacturer

0:11:350:11:37

Bombardier.

0:11:370:11:39

They are safe now after the firm

won a trade dispute

0:11:390:11:42

against Boeing in the US.

0:11:420:11:43

But Mrs May came here looking

to help find another breakthrough.

0:11:430:11:45

Northern Ireland has

been without a devolved

0:11:450:11:47

government for 13 months.

0:11:470:11:48

Several rounds of negotiations have

failed to break the deadlock between

0:11:480:11:51

the Democratic Unionist Party

and Sinn Fein.

0:11:510:11:59

Mrs May and the Irish prime

minister Leo Varadkar told

0:11:590:12:02

the parties they were committed

to bringing back devolution.

0:12:020:12:04

After the meetings, Stormont

politicians struck a positive note.

0:12:040:12:08

Good progress has been made,

we will continue to work

0:12:080:12:10

to look for more progress.

0:12:100:12:12

And it's about finding

an accommodation that

0:12:120:12:15

recognises the need to respect

all languages and all cultures

0:12:150:12:17

in Northern Ireland.

0:12:170:12:19

We don't believe that there

is anything now that is

0:12:190:12:25

insurmountable left to resolve.

0:12:250:12:27

There are matters of

clarity and some detail.

0:12:270:12:32

The main sticking point has been

whether there should be a new law

0:12:320:12:35

to protect and promote

the Irish language.

0:12:350:12:38

For speakers of the tongue,

Irish is about identity,

0:12:380:12:42

culture and history,

and they believe it

0:12:420:12:43

needs legal recognition.

0:12:430:12:51

It needs equality and it needs to be

on the same level as Gaelic

0:12:510:12:54

in Scotland and Welsh in Wales.

0:12:540:12:57

And obviously English here as well.

0:12:570:12:59

It needs to be on an equal

footing with the rest

0:12:590:13:03

and that's all we're asking.

0:13:030:13:04

But in Unionist areas

there is suspicion and even

0:13:040:13:06

hostility towards the idea.

0:13:060:13:08

Here in Shankill Road

in West Belfast people

0:13:080:13:10

are strongly opposed

to an Irish language law.

0:13:100:13:16

Wouldn't have my children going down

schools, you know, learning it,

0:13:160:13:19

letting the kids learn it.

0:13:190:13:20

This is British, it isn't Irish.

0:13:200:13:25

Always stick to British...

0:13:250:13:27

This is a British country,

not an Irish country.

0:13:270:13:29

I think it's terrible.

0:13:290:13:30

I think our crew's letting us down.

0:13:300:13:32

That strength of feeling shows how

sensitive and symbolic the issue

0:13:320:13:35

of the Irish language has become

during this long and deep political

0:13:350:13:43

crisis but there are other

disagreements separating the parties

0:13:460:13:48

including whether same-sex

marriage should be allowed

0:13:480:13:50

in Northern Ireland and how

the hundreds of unsolved

0:13:500:13:52

killings from the Troubles

should be dealt with.

0:13:520:13:55

The power-sharing executive has been

in the deep freeze as the issue

0:13:550:13:57

of the Irish border has become one

of the most significant

0:13:570:14:00

in the Brexit negotiations.

0:14:000:14:01

The Stormont stalemate isn't over,

but there are signs

0:14:010:14:03

relations are warming.

0:14:030:14:04

Chris Page, BBC News, Belfast.

0:14:040:14:06

The

0:14:060:14:11

London City Airport remains closed

after an unexploded bomb

0:14:110:14:13

from World War Two was

found in the Thames, not

0:14:130:14:16

far from the runway.

0:14:160:14:17

It was discovered in the early

hours of Sunday morning,

0:14:170:14:19

forcing the evacuation

of neighbouring buildings.

0:14:190:14:20

Work to dispose of the device should

be completed by tomorrow.

0:14:200:14:23

The Serious Fraud Office

is to prosecute Barclays Bank

0:14:230:14:26

over a loan of more than £2 billion

it gave to the Gulf state of

0:14:260:14:29

Qatar during the financial crisis.

0:14:290:14:34

Investigators claim the money

was used to buy shares

0:14:340:14:36

in the bank, which amounts

to unlawful financial assistance.

0:14:360:14:40

Barclays' parent company was charged

with the same offence

0:14:400:14:43

last year and both firms

will contest the allegations.

0:14:430:14:48

In South Africa, leaders

of the governing ANC party

0:14:480:14:53

are meeting to decide the fate

of President Jacob Zuma.

0:14:530:14:55

Mr Zuma has been resisting

calls to stand down,

0:14:550:15:00

but over the weekend the party's

new leader Cyril Ramaphosa

0:15:000:15:02

said the question of his position

would be finalised today.

0:15:020:15:05

Our Africa Editor Fergal Keane

is in Johannseburg.

0:15:050:15:10

We've been here quite a few times in

the last few weeks but is there any

0:15:100:15:14

sign of a final decision as to

President Zuma's fate?

Not yet but

0:15:140:15:21

there will be. I wish I could tell

you when. They've been talking for

0:15:210:15:25

over six hours. That's not unusual

with the ANC and especially the

0:15:250:15:31

National Executive Committee, which

has 90 members and everyone is

0:15:310:15:34

entitled to their say. They should

reach a consensus and avoid a

0:15:340:15:39

divisive vote. The scenario that has

been sketched out is that they will

0:15:390:15:46

agree to recall President Zuma, in

other words ask for his resignation

0:15:460:15:51

and in a carefully choreographed

move he will agreed to resign. It

0:15:510:15:54

isn't confirmed or guaranteed. The

doubt is moving onto the floor of

0:15:540:16:01

Parliament where you may have a vote

of no-confidence or impeachment

0:16:010:16:05

which would see ANC members voting

against their own leader. Cyril

0:16:050:16:09

Ramaphosa once to have leadership

and avoid a gift to the opposition.

0:16:090:16:15

It is hoped they will reach a

decision that will see President

0:16:150:16:21

Zuma, perhaps tomorrow morning,

agreeing to resign.

Britain's Aimee Fuller can only

0:16:460:16:48

finish 17th after being one

of the snowboarders to struggle on a

0:16:480:16:51

windswept day at

the Winter Olympics.

0:16:510:16:57

Tourist flights to Tunisia

will resume tomorrow,

0:17:000:17:03

two and half years after 30 British

holidaymakers were killed

0:17:030:17:06

in a terror attack at a beach

resort in the coastal

0:17:060:17:08

city of Sousse.

0:17:080:17:11

A travel ban later imposed by the UK

was lifted last summer

0:17:110:17:14

and now Thomas Cook will operate

flights from Manchester

0:17:140:17:16

and Birmingham.

0:17:160:17:18

Our Security Correspondent Frank

Gardner has travelled to Tunisia

0:17:180:17:20

to assess what security

measures have been taken

0:17:200:17:22

to reassure visitors.

0:17:220:17:28

Tunis by night, and a National Guard

unit prepares to raid

0:17:280:17:31

a suspected terrorist hideout.

0:17:310:17:39

Their commander tells us they know

of 500 Islamist extremists

0:17:390:17:42

living in just three

square kilometres here.

0:17:420:17:46

Well, they've just gone

into a house here.

0:17:460:17:49

We can hear some shouts.

0:17:490:17:52

We're in a tiny little backstreet,

and they're looking for members

0:17:520:17:58

of an Isis cell that has been

in Libya, they suspect, so the whole

0:17:580:18:02

street is flooded with these armed

National Guard soldiers.

0:18:020:18:07

Three years ago on this beach

near Sousse, an Isis gunman

0:18:070:18:10

shot dead 38 people,

30 of them British.

0:18:100:18:16

Now, Tunisia is getting training

from Royal Navy instructors

0:18:160:18:22

in maritime security,

while Met police detectives have

0:18:220:18:24

been training up hotel staff.

0:18:240:18:25

At four key airports,

British aviation experts have

0:18:250:18:29

installed new screening equipment,

so I asked Britain's ambassador,

0:18:290:18:31

how safe is it now?

0:18:310:18:32

Well, no country is 100% safe,

as we saw with the tragic attacks

0:18:320:18:36

in London and Manchester last year,

but it is safer here than it was in

0:18:360:18:40

2015 because the Tunisians'

capability has improved.

0:18:400:18:48

In the resort town of Hammamet,

where Thomas Cook is taking

0:18:480:18:52

the first returning British

tourists, I asked the hotel manager

0:18:520:18:54

what precautions he's taking.

0:18:540:18:58

We have around 60 cameras

all around the hotel.

0:18:580:19:02

The exterior cameras

are all monitored 24 hours

0:19:020:19:04

by people behind the screens.

0:19:040:19:11

But Tunisia sits in

a dangerous neighbourhood.

0:19:110:19:15

Across this border, Libya

is in chaos, and Isis has bases.

0:19:150:19:18

The Manchester bomber trained in

Libya, and so did the Sousse gunman.

0:19:180:19:25

Back in the capital, Tunis,

the night raid yields results.

0:19:250:19:31

Suspects were arrested

and will now face trial.

0:19:310:19:35

Tunisia has made huge

progress against terrorism,

0:19:350:19:38

but if its tourist industry

is to recover fully,

0:19:380:19:41

it will need to stay vigilant.

0:19:410:19:42

Frank Gardner, BBC News, Tunisia.

0:19:420:19:50

Friends and family are searching

for a Scottish man who's

0:19:500:19:51

gone missing in Hamburg

after a stag party.

0:19:510:19:54

Liam Colgan was last

seen in the early hours

0:19:540:19:56

of Saturday morning,

in a bar in the city.

0:19:560:19:59

He'd organised the trip

for family and friends,

0:19:590:20:01

ahead of his brother's

wedding next month.

0:20:010:20:02

Catrina Renton has the details.

0:20:020:20:08

Liam Colgan, on the right,

doing what he loves,

0:20:080:20:10

music with his band.

0:20:100:20:18

On Friday, he and 17

friends were out in Hamburg

0:20:210:20:24

celebrating his brother

Eamonn's stag weekend.

0:20:240:20:25

Liam is the best man

and had organised it all.

0:20:250:20:28

His friends last saw him at 1:30am

in the Reeperbahn area of the city.

0:20:280:20:33

We knew that his phone battery had

died on Friday evening

0:20:330:20:35

so we might not have just heard

of him overnight.

0:20:350:20:40

But it was really strange

when he didn't turn up the next

0:20:400:20:43

morning and we became increasingly

concerned when he didn't turn up

0:20:430:20:47

for the 5-a-side football match

that we had planned for one o'clock

0:20:470:20:50

on Saturday afternoon.

0:20:500:20:51

That's when we really knew

something wasn't right.

0:20:510:20:56

Some of Liam's family and friends

have stayed in the city

0:20:560:20:58

hoping to help trace him.

0:20:580:21:01

German police say they are

planning to launch a public

0:21:010:21:09

appeal for information.

0:21:090:21:10

Back in Scotland, Liam's friends

are doing everything they can,

0:21:100:21:15

they want as many people as possible

to share this page on social

0:21:150:21:18

media, hoping someone,

somewhere knows something.

0:21:180:21:20

It's totally out of character and

that's why we need people's help.

0:21:200:21:24

Don't assume that this is just a guy

on a night out that's not come back

0:21:240:21:28

because he's on some kind

of mad night out.

0:21:280:21:31

That's not him.

0:21:310:21:33

The wedding is in three weeks' time.

0:21:330:21:36

Liam's family and friends

just want him home.

0:21:360:21:39

Catrina Renton, BBC News.

0:21:390:21:44

Kensington Palace has released more

details of Prince Harry

0:21:440:21:47

and Meghan Markle's wedding plans.

0:21:470:21:49

The ceremony will take place

at Windsor Castle on May 19th.

0:21:490:21:52

Our Royal Correspondent

Nicholas Witchell reports.

0:21:520:21:57

Three months to go,

and so much to do, but Harry

0:21:570:22:04

and Megan are said to be

involving themselves closely

0:22:040:22:06

in details of the

wedding arrangements.

0:22:060:22:08

The venue we know will

be the magnificent

0:22:080:22:11

setting of St George's Chapel

inside Windsor Castle.

0:22:110:22:13

Dating from the 15th century

and rich in history, it's

0:22:130:22:15

here that the banners of the Knights

of the Garter are displayed above

0:22:150:22:18

the choir stalls.

0:22:180:22:19

It will be the setting

for a ceremony which will be

0:22:190:22:22

very much more a family wedding

than a state occasion.

0:22:220:22:24

We now know the timetable

for the day.

0:22:240:22:31

At noon, the wedding

ceremony will begin,

0:22:310:22:32

well-timed for American

breakfast television.

0:22:320:22:34

At 1pm, the carriage

procession will begin.

0:22:340:22:35

At around 2pm, there

will be a wedding

0:22:350:22:37

reception inside the castle.

0:22:370:22:39

Then in the evening,

there will be a private

0:22:390:22:41

dinner and reception for the couple,

their families, and close friends.

0:22:410:22:44

In terms of the carriage procession,

this is the route they will take.

0:22:440:22:48

At 1pm, from Windsor

Castle, they will

0:22:480:22:49

go down Castle Hill

and Windsor High Street,

0:22:490:22:51

and then out to the south

of Windsor along King's

0:22:510:22:54

Road, before returning

to the castle along

0:22:540:22:59

the Long Walk.

0:22:590:23:00

A processional route

which Kensington Palace hopes

0:23:000:23:01

will give people a chance

to feel part of what

0:23:010:23:04

they call, "This special

day."

0:23:040:23:05

One problem which hasn't been

resolved is whether Prince William,

0:23:050:23:09

the president of the

Football Association,

0:23:090:23:11

will be able to get to the FA

Cup final, which is due

0:23:110:23:16

to kick off at Wembley

late that afternoon.

0:23:160:23:18

It could be tricky.

0:23:180:23:19

The problem would be

getting William back

0:23:190:23:21

to the castle in time for that

family dinner in the evening.

0:23:210:23:24

If the cup final went

into extra time, he'd

0:23:240:23:26

have a problem.

0:23:260:23:29

So Windsor may well win

the day over Wembley.

0:23:290:23:33

And at the centre of things

at the big match in

0:23:330:23:37

Windsor will be these two, a bride

and groom becoming, well, not

0:23:370:23:40

exactly a Mr and Mrs,

more probably a Duke and Duchess.

0:23:400:23:45

Nicholas Witchell, BBC News,

Windsor.

0:23:450:23:49

The minister responsible

for maternity and paternity leave,

0:23:490:23:52

Andrew Griffiths, who has been

promoting shared parental

0:23:520:23:55

leave for new parents,

has told the BBC that he's not

0:23:550:23:58

actually eligible for the leave.

0:23:580:23:59

He and his wife are expecting

their first child in April,

0:23:590:24:02

but he said that as a minister it's

against the rules for him to take

0:24:020:24:05

advantage of the policy.

0:24:050:24:11

The legendary singer Vic Damone had

died at the age of 89.

0:24:110:24:18

# I hear music when I look at you.

#

0:24:200:24:27

Best known for the hits

"You're Breaking My Heart"

0:24:270:24:29

and "On the Street Where You Live,"

he was part of the golden

0:24:290:24:32

age of lounge singers,

who came to fame after World War II,

0:24:320:24:35

including Frank Sinatra,

Tony Bennett and Dean Martin.

0:24:350:24:37

Strong winds have disrupted

the Winter Olympics in South Korea.

0:24:370:24:39

The final of the women's giant

slalom had to be postponed.

0:24:390:24:42

But the final of the women's

snowboard slopestyle did go

0:24:420:24:45

ahead in conditions some

described as "dangerous".

0:24:450:24:47

From Pyeongchang, our

Sports Correspondent Andy

0:24:470:24:48

Swiss has the details.

0:24:480:24:54

Just getting to the

start was a struggle.

0:24:540:24:58

Howling winds for the women's

snowboarders and soon

0:24:580:25:00

a blizzard of controversy.

0:25:000:25:03

Instead of postponing, they went

ahead, with calamitous results.

0:25:030:25:05

COMMENTATOR:

Goodness me!

0:25:050:25:10

Quite how no one was injured,

especially Slovakia's Klaudia

0:25:100:25:14

Medlova, almost defied belief.

0:25:140:25:16

As one after another,

their hopes crash landed.

0:25:160:25:19

All of the 25 riders fell

at some point, including

0:25:190:25:22

Britain's Aimee Fuller.

0:25:220:25:27

The wind forced her to pull out

of a jump on her first run,

0:25:270:25:30

which meant on the second

it was all or nothing,

0:25:300:25:32

and agonisingly it was the latter.

0:25:320:25:34

Fuller finished 17th,

but more importantly, intact.

0:25:340:25:36

The conditions, she said,

where simply brutal.

0:25:360:25:41

It felt like I had

a sailboat under my board.

0:25:410:25:45

The wind ripped me sideways.

0:25:450:25:47

There wasn't a chance

I was going to land.

0:25:470:25:49

So, yeah, devastated.

0:25:490:25:54

Amidst the chaos, America's Jamie

Anderson kept her balance

0:25:540:25:57

and her Olympic title.

0:25:570:25:59

Organisers felt it had been safe

to start the final, but was it?

0:25:590:26:03

The coaches and judges,

they all have a chat together

0:26:030:26:06

and make a decision at the top

of the slope.

0:26:060:26:08

I wonder what went on in that

conversation, why somebody didn't

0:26:080:26:11

say, let's postpone this.

0:26:110:26:19

These biting winds have already

blown the schedule of course.

0:26:190:26:21

Today's women's giant slalom

had to be postponed,

0:26:210:26:23

and with more high winds forecast

tomorrow there could

0:26:230:26:25

be more disruption.

0:26:250:26:28

For now though, there will be relief

no-one was badly hurt,

0:26:280:26:30

on a day when extreme sport

certainly lived up to its name.

0:26:300:26:34

Andy Swiss, BBC News, Pyeongchang.

0:26:340:26:40

Looks pretty bad in South Korea,

what about here?

0:26:400:26:43

Here's Chris Fawkes.

0:26:430:26:45

Here's Chris Fawkes.

0:26:450:26:46

For some of us it is the winter that

keeps giving in terms of snow, some

0:26:460:26:51

having more than their fair share.

This was taken in the Peak District.

0:26:510:26:58

Looking at the satellite picture you

can see the next weather system that

0:26:580:27:02

is racing across the Atlantic and

this will cause problems overnight

0:27:020:27:06

and into tomorrow for some of us in

terms of heavies know. Before that,

0:27:060:27:11

very windy over England and Wales,

gusts around 70 mph around coastal

0:27:110:27:16

areas and that's enough to cause

issues. You can't help but notice

0:27:160:27:20

the blue turning into white further

north. Rain turning to snow in

0:27:200:27:25

higher parts of Northern Ireland,

Scotland and northern England. How

0:27:250:27:29

much, 5-10 centimetres. It could be

riding towards morning rush-hour in

0:27:290:27:37

Scotland, coming down heavily, so

difficult conditions, a risk of

0:27:370:27:40

disruption and even lower down there

will be a few centimetres. The snow

0:27:400:27:44

moving away from Northern Ireland

but leaving thick cover over the

0:27:440:27:49

higher ground. Through the rest of

the Davie Provan that nation is

0:27:490:27:52

slowly moving over East Anglia and

south-east England so it will feel

0:27:520:27:57

particularly cold. Sunny spells for

the rest of us but it will be cold,

0:27:570:28:01

temperatures struggling, four, 5

degrees. On Tuesday night, icy

0:28:010:28:09

stretches and then a weather system

racing from the Atlantic and it will

0:28:090:28:12

do more of the same, strong wind,

then a band of rain, turning to snow

0:28:120:28:17

over the higher ground, leading to

further significant accumulations.

0:28:170:28:23

Some snow at lower levels in eastern

Scotland but things will turn milder

0:28:230:28:27

from the West with temperatures up

to double figures late in the day.

0:28:270:28:31

We could see some problems overnight

and tomorrow, with heavy snow in the

0:28:310:28:35

North.

0:28:350:28:39

A reminder of our main story.

0:28:390:28:44

Oxfam's deputy Chief Executive has

resigned over the sex scandal

0:28:440:28:46

involving aid workers in Haiti.

0:28:460:28:49

That's it.

0:28:490:28:50

So it's goodbye from me.

0:28:500:28:51
