Emotional tributes to the two

brothers aged just six and two,

0:00:040:00:08

killed in a hit and run.

0:00:080:00:10

Casper and Corey Platt-May

were struck by a car

0:00:100:00:12

yesterday afternoon.

0:00:120:00:14

Their aunt says they

will be so missed.

0:00:140:00:17

They were the most loving boys.

0:00:170:00:19

They did nothing wrong.

0:00:190:00:21

They were loved by so many people.

0:00:210:00:26

Two people have been

arrested and are being held

0:00:260:00:28

by the police for questioning.

0:00:280:00:29

Also tonight:

0:00:290:00:30

A review finds not just girls

but also vulnerable women

0:00:300:00:33

are being sexually abused

by grooming gangs in

0:00:330:00:35

the north-east of England.

0:00:350:00:38

Were you the mastermind that

cheated the Olympics?

0:00:380:00:40

Yes.

0:00:400:00:48

The man who revealed Russian doping,

now in fear for his life, says

0:00:490:00:53

Russia should not be allowed at the

closing of the Winter Olympics.

0:00:530:00:55

The errors in prescribing

medicines in England

0:00:550:00:57

causing around 700 deaths a year.

0:00:570:01:03

And British hopes of Olympic gold

swept away in the curling.

0:01:030:01:09

Coming up later on BBC News,

Six Nations Sportsday.

0:01:090:01:17

The first Russian gold of the games

in figure skating.

0:01:170:01:25

Good evening and welcome

to the BBC News at Six.

0:01:360:01:39

The family of two young brothers

killed in a hit-and-run collision

0:01:390:01:42

have paid tribute to them as "jolly,

happy, lovely boys".

0:01:420:01:46

Corey and Casper Platt-May, aged six

and two, were struck by a car

0:01:460:01:50

yesterday afternoon in Coventry.

0:01:500:01:51

Their grandfather said he sobbed

at the scene of the crash

0:01:510:01:54

where the boys' pushchair,

baby walker and other possessions

0:01:540:01:57

were strewn over the road.

0:01:570:01:59

Their mother, who was

uninjured in the crash,

0:01:590:02:01

said her boys would be so missed.

0:02:010:02:04

A 53-year-old man and a 41-year-old

woman have been arrested.

0:02:040:02:08

Sima Kotecha reports.

0:02:080:02:11

Casper and Corey.

0:02:110:02:14

One brother loved maths

and football, the other enjoyed

0:02:140:02:16

splashing in puddles.

0:02:160:02:18

Yesterday, on this road in Coventry,

they were hit by a car.

0:02:180:02:22

Today, bewilderment,

confusion and shock.

0:02:220:02:26

They were the most loving boys.

0:02:260:02:29

They did nothing wrong.

0:02:290:02:32

They were loved by so many people,

and so cheeky and...

0:02:320:02:36

Corey was cheeky,

artistic, mischievous.

0:02:360:02:40

A right wrestler.

0:02:400:02:43

Casper followed his brother,

being a wrestler, being

0:02:430:02:46

mischievous and being cocky.

0:02:460:02:50

Just a normal little toddler.

0:02:500:02:53

They didn't deserve this.

0:02:530:02:57

It was around 2pm and the boys

were on their way to the park

0:02:570:03:01

with their mother when they were hit

by a black Ford Focus.

0:03:010:03:04

They were taken to hospital

with severe injuries

0:03:040:03:06

but neither of them survived.

0:03:060:03:09

I feel really heartbroken,

to be honest.

0:03:090:03:12

I've known the dad

almost all my life.

0:03:120:03:15

And such a lovely family.

0:03:150:03:18

Why do bad things happen?

0:03:180:03:20

My little one, she knows the older

one, because she's six.

0:03:200:03:24

He was really friendly.

0:03:240:03:27

And kind.

0:03:270:03:31

A 53-year-old man and a 41-year-old

woman have been arrested

0:03:310:03:34

on suspicion of drink-driving

and causing death

0:03:340:03:35

by dangerous driving.

0:03:350:03:40

Casper and Corey's mother paid

tribute to her sons on social media,

0:03:400:03:43

calling them amazing,

cheeky and fun.

0:03:430:03:47

Their grandfather had this to say.

0:03:470:03:51

The boys were lovely.

0:03:510:03:52

They'd do anything.

0:03:520:03:53

Just very happy, jolly, lovely boys.

0:03:530:03:58

And their lives have been

taken away so young.

0:03:580:04:00

It's unbelievable.

0:04:000:04:02

I just don't know

what to say, you know.

0:04:020:04:05

It's just crazy.

0:04:050:04:13

Well, the mood here this evening is

sombre indeed. The pile of flowers

0:04:160:04:20

behind me has been steadily growing

throughout the day, and people have

0:04:200:04:24

been standing in silence, trying to

process what happened to those two

0:04:240:04:29

boys yesterday in Coventry. We are

hearing from police this evening

0:04:290:04:33

that the two people arrested

yesterday, 853 or old man and a

0:04:330:04:38

41-year-old woman are still being

questioned. -- 53-year old man.

0:04:380:04:46

A review into sexual exploitation

in the north-east of England has

0:04:460:04:48

concluded it is likely that not just

girls but also vulnerable women

0:04:480:04:51

are being "extensively" abused

across the UK.

0:04:510:04:53

It follows Operation Sanctuary

in August last year which saw these

0:04:530:04:56

18 people jailed for the sexual

abuse of young women and girls

0:04:560:04:58

groomed in Newcastle.

0:04:580:04:59

A review of that case has concluded

a number of gangs have abused

0:04:590:05:03

more than 700 victims

across the Northumberland region.

0:05:030:05:06

From Newcastle, Fiona Trott reports.

0:05:060:05:10

A city under scrutiny.

0:05:100:05:12

On these streets, as many as 700

vulnerable girls and women

0:05:120:05:15

were sexually exploited.

0:05:150:05:17

Some were trafficked

from one house to another

0:05:170:05:19

and abused by several men.

0:05:190:05:21

Vanessa, not her real name,

was a victim of sexual exploitation.

0:05:210:05:27

To protect her identity,

we have used an actor's voice.

0:05:270:05:29

At first, nothing was expected.

0:05:290:05:32

I would just meet them

and sit and have a drink.

0:05:320:05:35

As time went on, I would have

to have sex with them.

0:05:350:05:43

When you are in care,

they say you need education

0:05:430:05:45

but what they seem to forget is that

you can have the mental

0:05:450:05:48

intelligence, but if you are not

emotionally educated,

0:05:480:05:50

it is pointless.

0:05:500:05:51

That is why schools

like this are teaching

0:05:510:05:53

children about grooming.

0:05:530:05:54

Operation Sanctuary

happened on their doorstep.

0:05:540:05:56

In Newcastle, we have seen

people being arrested.

0:05:560:05:59

Generally, it tends to be men.

0:05:590:06:03

It makes you afraid to go

out in case it happens

0:06:030:06:06

to you or your friend.

0:06:060:06:07

You get worried?

0:06:070:06:08

Yes.

0:06:080:06:11

Scared in case it happens

and you don't know who to turn

0:06:110:06:14

to and who you could trust.

0:06:140:06:16

Both people in a relationship need

to be comfortable and you need to be

0:06:160:06:19

in a situation where you can

open up and listen.

0:06:190:06:22

Today's report says

it is not just children.

0:06:220:06:25

For the first time, a focus

on vulnerable adults and a warning

0:06:250:06:28

to other towns and cities

across the UK.

0:06:280:06:31

It was a specific feature

of the Newcastle experience that it

0:06:310:06:34

What I'd like the government to do

is to have a really good look

0:06:360:06:40

at the learning that is now

available about abuse of adults

0:06:400:06:42

with vulnerabilities,

check the legislation,

0:06:420:06:44

make sure the legislation

that is in place is fit for purpose.

0:06:440:06:51

In the meantime, this is how police

are tackling the problem now.

0:06:510:06:54

Takeaway staff across Newcastle

are being trained on how

0:06:540:06:56

to spot adult victims.

0:06:560:06:59

They know the exploitation

still exists in this city.

0:06:590:07:03

I think it would be naive and wrong

for me to suggest that

0:07:030:07:09

because of Sanctuary

and at the point that this

0:07:090:07:11

report is published,

that this has stopped.

0:07:110:07:15

That we have solved the problem.

0:07:150:07:16

We haven't.

0:07:160:07:17

It continues.

0:07:170:07:19

It carries on, I would suggest,

in most, if not all towns

0:07:190:07:22

and cities in the UK.

0:07:220:07:25

Most of the perpetrators who cruised

the streets were from Pakistani,

0:07:250:07:28

Bangladeshi and Indian backgrounds.

0:07:280:07:31

The report is calling

for research into their cultures

0:07:310:07:34

to understand their motivation

and what it calls an

0:07:340:07:36

arrogant persistence.

0:07:360:07:44

The hundreds of victims in Newcastle

received a public apology from the

0:07:440:07:48

review team today. This is what the

team says about how other towns and

0:07:480:07:54

cities can learn from Newcastle.

They say there should be an

0:07:540:07:58

automatic assumption that sexual

exploitation is happening on their

0:07:580:08:01

doorstep. Only then can it be

identified and dealt with as soon as

0:08:010:08:05

possible.

0:08:050:08:06

The man who exposed

the Russian Olympic doping scandal

0:08:060:08:09

says his country's athletes should

not be allowed to parade

0:08:090:08:11

under their national flag

at the closing ceremony

0:08:110:08:13

of the Winter Games this weekend.

0:08:130:08:14

Two Russian athletes have tested

positive for banned drugs.

0:08:140:08:17

Dr Grigory Rodchenkov's revelations

of state-sponsored doping

0:08:170:08:20

saw the country banned

from the Olympics,

0:08:200:08:23

its athletes forced

to compete as neutrals.

0:08:230:08:25

In fear of his life,

Dr Rodchenkov went into hiding.

0:08:250:08:27

Now in the United States,

our sports editor Dan Roan travelled

0:08:270:08:30

to interview him

at a secret location.

0:08:300:08:35

It's one of sport's

greatest scandals.

0:08:350:08:38

Russian cheating reached its height

at the last Winter Games in Sochi.

0:08:380:08:42

The mastermind, Doctor

Grigory Rodchenkov.

0:08:420:08:45

In 2015, the former head

of Moscow's anti-doping lab

0:08:450:08:47

turned whistle-blower,

fleeing to the West.

0:08:470:08:50

Ever since, he's been

in FBI witness protection.

0:08:500:08:52

And we are on the way to meet him.

0:08:520:08:56

For more than two years now,

the man at the very heart

0:08:560:08:59

of Russia's doping scandal has been

living in hiding, here somewhere

0:08:590:09:02

in the United States.

0:09:020:09:04

Finally, he's agreed to speak to us,

but such are the security

0:09:040:09:07

concerns surrounding him,

we've not even been told

0:09:070:09:08

where we have to go.

0:09:080:09:11

After hours on the road,

we are taken to a location

0:09:110:09:14

that we are told has to remain

a secret, along

0:09:140:09:16

with his new identity.

0:09:160:09:19

If you had not left Russia,

where would you be now?

0:09:190:09:22

You'd be dead?

0:09:250:09:28

Rodchenkov's role in Russia's

remarkable doping programme

0:09:310:09:33

became the subject of

an Oscar-nominated film.

0:09:330:09:35

Were you the mastermind that

cheated the Olympics?

0:09:350:09:38

He said the conspiracy

went right to the top,

0:09:430:09:45

and that London 2012

was also targeted.

0:09:450:09:47

So what does he say to British

athletes whose Games were tainted?

0:09:470:09:50

The Russian government

says you are lying.

0:10:060:10:08

You were cheating.

0:10:080:10:09

It wasn't them, it was you.

0:10:090:10:12

Does British sport have a problem

with cheating, do you think?

0:10:240:10:27

Rodchenkov says he may soon be

prepared to name names, and has

0:10:410:10:44

vowed to reveal more information.

0:10:440:10:47

Despite Russian claims he is part

of a Western conspiracy,

0:10:470:10:50

his information led to a ban

from the Winter Olympics.

0:10:500:10:54

168 of the country's athletes

competed as neutrals,

0:10:540:10:56

but they may now be allowed to march

under their national flag

0:10:560:10:59

at the closing ceremony.

0:10:590:11:02

The Olympic athletes

of the Russian team...

0:11:160:11:17

Only clean Russians were meant

to be in Pyeongchang,

0:11:170:11:20

but today a second of its athletes

at these games, Nadezhda Sergeeva,

0:11:200:11:23

failed a drugs test.

0:11:230:11:25

Moving forward from sport's biggest

crisis is proving no easy task.

0:11:250:11:28

Dan Roan, BBC News.

0:11:280:11:32

The United Nations Security Council

has been meeting to discuss

0:11:320:11:34

a resolution calling for a 30-day

humanitarian ceasefire in Syria.

0:11:340:11:39

There were more air strikes today

targeting the rebel-held

0:11:390:11:41

area of eastern Ghouta,

near Damascus, which has been under

0:11:410:11:43

heavy bombardment since Sunday.

0:11:430:11:46

More than 400 people are reported

to have been killed this week.

0:11:460:11:51

Nick Bryant is at the UN.

0:11:510:11:53

So far it appears to be Russia

that's holding up a ceasefire.

0:11:530:11:56

Any sign of a breakthrough?

0:11:560:12:03

Yes, that's right. We were supposed

to have a vote on this ceasefire

0:12:030:12:06

resolution mid-morning which was

postponed. Then it was supposed to

0:12:060:12:11

be at noon, that got postponed.

Western diplomats are saying the

0:12:110:12:15

Russians are using delaying tactics

to allow the Assad regime to

0:12:150:12:19

continue its military campaign in

Eastern Ghouta. They are saying

0:12:190:12:23

sometimes the Russians are doing

over semantics rather than

0:12:230:12:27

substance, just changing a word here

or there. And while this diplomatic

0:12:270:12:32

haggling continues, so does the

bombardment of Eastern Ghouta, that

0:12:320:12:36

enclave to the east of the capital,

Damascus. This morning saw the most

0:12:360:12:41

intense bombardment so far. This

building behind me is packed with UN

0:12:410:12:48

staff, humanitarian professionals,

desperate to get humanitarian aid

0:12:480:12:51

into Eastern Ghouta and to carry out

medical evacuations. What they are

0:12:510:12:56

waiting for is a green light from

the Security Council, for Russia to

0:12:560:13:00

allow this draft resolution to go

through. While we have been on air,

0:13:000:13:05

one of the ambassadors in the heart

of the negotiations says, we are

0:13:050:13:09

almost there. We will see, because

that ceasefire resolution can't come

0:13:090:13:14

soon enough for the civilians in

besieged Eastern Ghouta.

Nick Bryant

0:13:140:13:20

in New York, thank you.

0:13:200:13:22

A company that makes ejector seats

has been fined £1.1 million

0:13:220:13:25

over the death of an RAF Red Arrows

pilot in 2011.

0:13:250:13:27

Flight Lieutenant Sean Cunningham

died when the main parachute

0:13:270:13:30

on his seat failed to deploy.

0:13:300:13:32

Martin-Baker Aircraft Limited

had already admitted

0:13:320:13:35

breaking safety laws.

0:13:350:13:36

The judge at Lincoln Crown Court

described it as having been

0:13:360:13:38

"an entirely preventable tragedy".

0:13:380:13:42

The head of Royal Bank of Scotland

says its return to profit,

0:13:420:13:45

for the first time since

it was bailed out by

0:13:450:13:48

the government in 2008,

is a "really symbolic moment".

0:13:480:13:50

RBS, a majority of which is still

owned by the taxpayer,

0:13:500:13:53

made an annual profit

of £752 million in 2017 compared

0:13:530:13:56

with a loss of nearly

£7 billion the year before.

0:13:560:14:00

Our economics editor

Kamal Ahmed reports.

0:14:000:14:08

Faced with one of the biggest crises

since the Second World War...

0:14:090:14:12

A coordinated response

to the financial crisis...

0:14:120:14:13

For RBS, the government will take...

0:14:130:14:15

It was an astonishing time,

a global risky bank on the verge

0:14:150:14:18

of collapse, customers unsure

if they could withdraw their own

0:14:180:14:21

money, a rescue plan funded

by the taxpayer to save the economy.

0:14:210:14:26

A decade on, after years of losses,

the man at the helm of a partially

0:14:260:14:30

revived RBS said he believed

the worst was behind them.

0:14:300:14:33

This is actually very symbolic.

0:14:330:14:36

I think not just for our colleagues

at work but also for the UK,

0:14:360:14:40

who did put a lot of

money into this bank.

0:14:400:14:42

And we've been restructuring it,

taking losses through conduct

0:14:420:14:50

and litigation issues.

0:14:500:14:51

From the out of control

RBS to the new, a focus

0:14:510:14:54

on the simpler NatWest,

which RBS owns, and selling off

0:14:540:14:56

the riskier bits of that old bad

bank after past bad behaviour.

0:14:560:14:59

A better day, a symbolic day

for this bank, but it's a bank

0:14:590:15:02

that is not out of the woods.

0:15:020:15:04

Ahead is a huge fine

from the American authorities over

0:15:040:15:09

this bank's involvement

in the mortgage crisis over there.

0:15:090:15:13

Here, there's the continuing fallout

from the terrible treatment

0:15:130:15:17

of many small businesses.

0:15:170:15:20

Yes, this year a profit,

but the accumulated losses

0:15:200:15:24

by this bank over the last

decade, £58 billion.

0:15:240:15:31

RBS knows it is facing a tough 2018.

0:15:310:15:34

It has set aside £3.2 billion to pay

fines expected from America.

0:15:340:15:39

And it will need to compensate those

small firms it has mistreated.

0:15:390:15:42

That could cost £400 million.

0:15:420:15:45

That's why the share price

went down today by 4%,

0:15:450:15:48

despite the profits.

0:15:480:15:50

Will the taxpayer get their money

back for bailing you out

0:15:500:15:53

in the financial crisis?

0:15:530:15:56

It will take a number

of years to come through.

0:15:560:15:58

The government has said

they want to start that process

0:15:580:16:01

in the fiscal year 18-19,

and it will take probably

0:16:010:16:04

about three to five years for them

to get down to a much smaller

0:16:040:16:08

percentage of their ownership.

0:16:080:16:11

Mr McEwan said costs still had

to be controlled and gave

0:16:110:16:14

no guarantees on jobs,

or that bank branches

0:16:140:16:15

would not be closed.

0:16:150:16:22

The British public have invested

in RBS and supported it supported it

0:16:220:16:25

for the last ten years.

0:16:250:16:26

We would like to see that support

invested back into the local

0:16:260:16:29

communities RBS serves.

0:16:290:16:30

That starts with the bank

branch closure programme,

0:16:300:16:32

which should be slowed

down and stopped.

0:16:320:16:33

A more positive time for RBS,

but challenges ahead

0:16:330:16:36

and a clear message -

the taxpayer will not be getting his

0:16:360:16:38

or her money back any time soon.

Emotional tributes to the two

brothers, aged just six

0:16:480:16:51

and two, killed in a hit

and run yesterday afternoon.

0:16:510:16:55

And still to come.

0:16:550:16:56

The 15-year-old sensation who's

taken the first gold for the Olympic

0:16:560:17:00

athletes from Russia

in the women's figure skating.

0:17:000:17:04

Coming up on Sportsday on BBC News.

0:17:040:17:08

The 15-year-old skater

Alina Zagitova wins the Olympic

0:17:080:17:10

athletes from Russia

team their first gold

0:17:100:17:12

of the Games in figure skating.

0:17:120:17:15

Errors in prescribing drugs

in England are causing hundreds

0:17:230:17:25

of deaths every year.

0:17:250:17:27

The Health Secretary,

Jeremy Hunt, says the errors

0:17:270:17:30

are causing "appalling levels

of harm and death".

0:17:300:17:33

A government study found as many

as 237 million mistakes are possibly

0:17:330:17:37

being made each year.

0:17:370:17:40

Many cause no harm to

patients but some errors

0:17:400:17:43

are believed to cause

around 700 deaths per year

0:17:430:17:45

and could contribute

to thousands more.

0:17:450:17:48

The cost to the NHS in compensation

and additional care costs is over

0:17:480:17:51

one and a half billion pounds.

0:17:510:17:54

Mr Hunt said staffing issues

are a factor and the system

0:17:540:17:56

must be modernised,

Here's our Health Editor Hugh Pym.

0:17:560:18:01

Shirley has her husband Harry

to thank for spotting a medication

0:18:010:18:04

error which could have

made her very seriously ill.

0:18:040:18:08

She was admitted to hospital

with pneumonia but was mistakenly

0:18:080:18:11

given double dose of

the usual epilepsy medicine.

0:18:110:18:15

It was only put right after Harry

saw her condition had got worse

0:18:150:18:18

realised something was wrong.

0:18:180:18:21

Thinking back on it now,

her granddaughter and the rest

0:18:210:18:23

of the family are angry

about Shirley's ordeal.

0:18:230:18:28

I was personally really quite

horrified that something like that

0:18:280:18:30

could happen whilst in the care

of a hospital.

0:18:300:18:33

You know, you don't expect to go

into hospital and receive

0:18:330:18:36

the wrong medication,

especially something

0:18:360:18:38

you're already prescribed

and you have a prescription for.

0:18:380:18:42

You shouldn't then

receive the wrong dosage.

0:18:420:18:46

I think it was quite scary to think

that that error could be made.

0:18:460:18:49

I was shouting and hollering

and didn't know where

0:18:490:18:52

I was, what I was doing.

0:18:520:18:55

And that's not me at all.

0:18:550:18:59

It can happen right

across the system and not just

0:18:590:19:02

in hospitals and care homes

where medication is

0:19:020:19:04

being administered.

0:19:040:19:06

Pharmacists can make errors

when they are dispensing medicines.

0:19:060:19:10

They say they sometimes have

to correct mistakes made by GPs

0:19:100:19:14

when they are issuing descriptions.

0:19:140:19:17

The government says medication

errors are made in every

0:19:170:19:20

health system but even so,

action is needed including greater

0:19:200:19:23

use of online prescribing.

0:19:230:19:29

This is not about blaming doctors,

nurses, pharmacists,

0:19:290:19:31

who work under a huge

amount of pressure.

0:19:310:19:33

It's about putting the checks

and balances in place

0:19:330:19:35

with e-prescribing systems

and making sure the culture is right

0:19:350:19:37

so if someone does make a mistake

they are not criminalised for it.

0:19:370:19:42

We can learn from that mistake

and stop it being repeated.

0:19:420:19:46

Health unions agree that more needs

to be done but they argue underlying

0:19:460:19:50

issues like staffing

should be tackled.

0:19:500:19:53

There aren't enough staff always

to keep patients as safe

0:19:530:19:56

as they should be because errors

are so much easier made

0:19:560:20:00

when you don't know the patient,

you don't know the area.

0:20:000:20:03

You may not know the drugs.

0:20:030:20:06

It may be an area you're not

familiar working in.

0:20:060:20:08

It could even be

a different specialty.

0:20:080:20:10

Staff are moved around areas

to cover the gaps in the service

0:20:100:20:13

that we have at the moment.

0:20:130:20:14

Shirley and her family

are waiting for a full

0:20:140:20:16

explanation of what happened.

0:20:160:20:18

Whatever the reasons

for the mistake over the medicine,

0:20:180:20:21

they simply want someone

to take responsibility.

0:20:210:20:24

Hugh Pym, BBC News.

0:20:240:20:27

President Trump has criticised

an armed officer who stood outside

0:20:270:20:30

the Florida school where a gunman

killed 17 people last week.

0:20:300:20:34

Deputy Scot Peterson resigned

after an investigation found

0:20:340:20:37

he waited outside while shots

were being fired and failed

0:20:370:20:40

to confront the suspect.

0:20:400:20:42

The President, who has suggested

arming teachers as one way

0:20:420:20:44

of reducing the risk to students,

said the officer hadn't

0:20:440:20:47

shown enough courage.

0:20:470:20:50

He was there for five

minutes, for five minutes,

0:20:500:20:52

that was during the entire shooting.

0:20:520:20:54

He heard it right at the beginning

so he certainly did a poor job

0:20:540:20:58

but that's a case where somebody

was outside, they are trained,

0:20:580:21:00

they didn't react properly under

pressure or they were a coward.

0:21:000:21:08

European Union leaders

are meeting in Brussels

0:21:090:21:11

without Theresa May to discuss

the EU's future after Brexit.

0:21:110:21:15

Theresa May will give more details

on how close a relationship Britain

0:21:150:21:19

should eventually have with the EU

in a speech next Friday.

0:21:190:21:22

Our Europe Correspondent Damian

Grammaticas is at the EU

0:21:220:21:25

summit in Brussels.

0:21:250:21:26

What have the leaders

been discussing today?

0:21:260:21:33

Fiona where getting more details of

the outcome of that press conference

0:21:330:21:37

happening right now. On the table

were difficult issues they will be

0:21:370:21:41

facing, number one, the hole in the

budget left when the UK leaves,

0:21:410:21:47

about 10% of the EU's budget and

there are divisions. Countries who

0:21:470:21:51

put money in, many said they don't

want to put mooring but the

0:21:510:21:55

countries who want to receive money,

don't want to receive less. Donald

0:21:550:21:58

Tusk is said a number of countries

have indicated a willingness to

0:21:580:22:02

spend more and on priorities like

stemming illegal migration and

0:22:020:22:08

defence and security, so perhaps

some progress there. Is also said

0:22:080:22:11

there is an agreement on the UK's

MEPs, those seats will disappear and

0:22:110:22:17

be carved up amongst other

countries. On the crucial issue of

0:22:170:22:21

the Brexit negotiation, the leaders

here are all waiting to hear the

0:22:210:22:26

outcome of the Cabinet discussions

at Chequers. Indications are that

0:22:260:22:31

the UK will try to ask for a trade

deal with added extras, special

0:22:310:22:37

access for some businesses like

automobiles, and the Irish prime

0:22:370:22:41

ministers today said he poured cold

water on the idea saying you can't

0:22:410:22:46

have special access in some areas

and the EU has already made it is

0:22:460:22:49

not keen on that idea but Donald

Tusk is that he's going to London on

0:22:490:22:54

Thursday next week ahead of Theresa

May's big speech and needs details

0:22:540:22:56

and says he will press ahead with

EU's plan whether the UK is ready or

0:22:560:23:02

not.

Damian, in Brussels, thank you.

0:23:020:23:07

Reality TV star Kylie Jenner showed

the power of social media

0:23:070:23:10

when she tweeted a post that wiped

a billion pounds off

0:23:100:23:13

Snapchat's stock market value.

0:23:130:23:14

She posted about the SnapChat app's

redesign to her 24-and-a-half

0:23:140:23:16

million Twitter followers,

saying:

0:23:160:23:18

"So does anyone else not

open Snapchat anymore?

0:23:180:23:20

"Or is it just me?"

0:23:200:23:22

Just ten minutes later she wrote,

0:23:220:23:24

"Still love you tho snap...my first

love" but by then it was too late.

0:23:240:23:30

The comedian, broadcaster and author

Stephen Fry has revealed he's been

0:23:300:23:32

suffering from prostate cancer.

0:23:320:23:34

The 60-year-old had an operation

to remove tumours last month

0:23:340:23:37

and said things had gone pretty well

and he's now on the

0:23:370:23:40

road to recovery.

0:23:400:23:44

I thought, well, before the gossip

gets silly and ill-informed I might

0:23:440:23:47

as well come clean so there you are.

0:23:470:23:49

Stephen Fry, my fight with cancer.

0:23:490:23:52

Of course it wasn't a fight.

0:23:520:23:53

I just submitted and

let the surgeon...

0:23:530:23:56

Ben was wonderful and Roger,

the urologist was wonderful

0:23:560:23:58

and Tony my doctor, wonderful.

0:23:580:23:59

I generally felt my life was saved

by this early intervention

0:23:590:24:03

so I would urge any of you men

of a certain age to think

0:24:030:24:06

about getting your PSA

levels checked and then,

0:24:060:24:09

of course, it's all about discussing

what the outcome, what the plan

0:24:090:24:11

should be with your specialist

and your doctor.

0:24:110:24:18

At the Winter Olympics,

Britain lost to Sweden

0:24:180:24:20

in the semifinal of the women's

curling although there is still

0:24:200:24:23

the chance of a bronze medal.

0:24:230:24:24

Elsewhere, a Russian girl,

aged just 15, won gold

0:24:240:24:26

in the ladies figure skating.

0:24:260:24:29

Our Sports Correspondent,

Andy Swiss, reports.

0:24:290:24:33

So would it be another step

towards the Olympic title?

0:24:330:24:37

The British team walked out to a mix

of noise and nerves.

0:24:370:24:41

The captain's face betraying just

how much was at stake.

0:24:410:24:45

Four years ago in Sochi, the British

women lost in the semifinals.

0:24:450:24:49

So for Eve Muirhead and her team

this is a chance to put that

0:24:490:24:52

disappointment behind them

and to guarantee themselves

0:24:520:24:54

an Olympic medal.

0:24:540:24:57

What followed proved

predictably tense.

0:24:570:24:59

Sweden went ahead early

but Britain fought back.

0:24:590:25:03

COMMENTATOR:

Has Eve Muirhead

played a cracker here?

0:25:030:25:08

A spot of Muirhead magic

to level things up.

0:25:080:25:10

Well done, Eve Muirhead.

0:25:100:25:11

But their hopes

suddenly slipped away.

0:25:110:25:12

An error by the captain giving

the Swedes three shots.

0:25:120:25:17

The expression said it all.

0:25:170:25:19

From there there was no way back.

0:25:190:25:21

Sweden wrapped up an emphatic win.

0:25:210:25:24

Britain will now play off

for bronze, but their

0:25:240:25:26

golden hopes have gone.

0:25:260:25:28

Absolutely gutted.

0:25:280:25:30

Absolutely gutted.

0:25:300:25:31

I guess we've trained hard

for the last three or four years

0:25:310:25:34

to be in that position

and unfortunately today

0:25:340:25:36

we were just outplayed.

0:25:360:25:38

But if that was one-sided,

the other semifinal

0:25:380:25:40

delivered astonishing drama.

0:25:400:25:43

In extra time, South Korea

had the final stone

0:25:430:25:45

and a nation willing it on.

0:25:450:25:49

COMMENTATOR:

They

are going to get it.

0:25:490:25:53

They have.

0:25:530:25:54

What a fantastic shot!

0:25:540:25:55

Victory over Japan sparking

wild celebrations.

0:25:550:25:56

The hosts in the final

and in utter jubilation.

0:25:560:25:59

They are into the gold medal match.

0:25:590:26:01

But perhaps the day's

greatest achievement

0:26:010:26:03

belonged to a 15-year-old,

the remarkable Alina Zagitova

0:26:030:26:08

winning a first gold

medal for the Olympic

0:26:080:26:10

athletes from Russia.

0:26:100:26:13

Her country is banned

from these Games so,

0:26:130:26:15

come the presentation,

no national flag

0:26:150:26:19

and a neutral anthem.

0:26:190:26:24

An unusual ceremony

for an extraordinary teenage talent.

0:26:240:26:29

Andy Swiss, BBC News, PyeongChang.

0:26:290:26:35

Amazing. It's going to be chilly

here.

0:26:350:26:37

Time for a look at the weather.

0:26:370:26:39

Here's Alina Jenkins.

0:26:390:26:42

Cold as Pyeongchang but certainly

turning colder. Some sparkling

0:26:420:26:44

sunshine around and we keep that

through the weekend. This was taken

0:26:440:26:50

in early on this afternoon but

despite a good deed of sunshine

0:26:500:26:52

around through Saturday and Sunday,

it will feel bitterly cold as the

0:26:520:26:57

south-easterly winds start to

strengthen and as we go into next

0:26:570:27:01

week, a chance for some of us to see

some significant snow. This evening

0:27:010:27:06

and it's cloudy stretching down

through East Anglia. Summit could

0:27:060:27:10

push into the Midlands may be

northern parts of Wales, but for

0:27:100:27:13

much of the country, fairly clear

skies and under those clear skies

0:27:130:27:16

temperature is taking a tumble.

Minus three Celsius widely. A few

0:27:160:27:21

rural spots down to -5 so cold

frosty start to the day tomorrow. A

0:27:210:27:27

good deal of sunshine. Much of the

overnight cloud melting away but

0:27:270:27:30

some exceptions Northern Ireland,

the far south-west of England and

0:27:300:27:34

later in the day north of Scotland

seeing a bit more cloud.

0:27:340:27:36

Temperatures getting up between 4-7

on the strength of the wind and it

0:27:360:27:42

will feel colder and we do it all

again in Sunday. A cold frosty start

0:27:420:27:46

with sunshine. More sunshine for

Northern Ireland on Sunday. Cloud

0:27:460:27:52

creeping into Scotland, North

England could see a few wintry

0:27:520:27:56

flurries. Temperatures 4-7. Ad on

the strength of brisk south-easterly

0:27:560:28:02

wind and in places it will feel more

like -3 especially through the

0:28:020:28:06

Midlands and East Anglia so a cold

day on Sunday. It turns even colder.

0:28:060:28:11

The wind coming all the way down

from the Arctic pushing their way

0:28:110:28:14

across UK and in that airflow some

wintry showers developing across the

0:28:140:28:19

North Sea so Monday and Tuesday, a

greater chance for eastern parts of

0:28:190:28:24

the country to see some snow fall

and so that could push further

0:28:240:28:27

westwards through the rest of the

week. Fiona. Thanks very much.

0:28:270:28:33

A reminder of our main

Thanks very much.
