Police launch a murder inquiry

into the death of another

0:00:000:00:02

Russian exile in London.

0:00:020:00:05

Nikolai Glushkov, a Russian

businessman, was found dead

0:00:050:00:07

in his home on Monday.

0:00:070:00:08

It appears he was strangled.

0:00:080:00:11

Police are guarding his house.

0:00:110:00:12

They say there is nothing

to link his death to the poisoning

0:00:120:00:15

of the Russian spy Sergei Skripal.

0:00:150:00:18

With Mr Skripal and his daughter

still critical in hospital,

0:00:180:00:21

the Foreign Secretary blames

Vladimir Putin for the attack.

0:00:210:00:25

Our quarrel is with Putin's Kremlin,

and with his decision.

0:00:250:00:29

And we think it overwhelmingly

likely that it was his decision.

0:00:290:00:34

The Kremlin calls Mr Johnson's

comments shocking and unforgivable.

0:00:340:00:36

We'll bring you the latest

on this developing story.

0:00:360:00:38

Also tonight:

0:00:380:00:42

The Iraqi teenager found guilty

of the Parsons Green Tube bombing,

0:00:420:00:44

who was on the government's

counter-terror

0:00:440:00:46

programme at the time.

0:00:460:00:49

At least six people have been killed

in Miami after the collapse

0:00:490:00:52

of a bridge built in just six hours

less than a week ago.

0:00:520:01:00

And the women animators winning

awards and trying to encourage

0:01:000:01:03

other women to join them.

0:01:030:01:06

Coming up on Sportsday on BBC News,

Liverpool and Manchester City

0:01:070:01:10

will meet in the last eight

of the Champions League,

0:01:100:01:12

the first all-English

quarterfinal since 2011.

0:01:120:01:13

It is Liverpool

versus Manchester City.

0:01:130:01:20

Good evening and welcome

to the BBC News at Six.

0:01:360:01:39

A murder inquiry has been launched

into the death of a Russian

0:01:390:01:42

businessman in London on Monday.

0:01:420:01:43

A postmortem has concluded

Nikolai Glushkov died

0:01:430:01:46

from compression to the neck,

suggesting he was strangled.

0:01:460:01:49

Detectives say there's nothing

at this stage to link the murder

0:01:490:01:51

with the nerve agent attacks

in Salisbury of Sergei Skripal

0:01:510:01:54

and his daughter.

0:01:540:01:56

Boris Johnson says he believes it's

"overwhelmingly likely" that

0:01:560:01:58

President Putin was personally

responsible for ordering

0:01:580:02:01

the death of Mr Skripal.

0:02:010:02:04

The Kremlin has called his comments

shocking and unforgivable.

0:02:040:02:07

Our diplomatic correspondent

James Landale has more.

0:02:070:02:15

Boris Johnson brought the Polish

Foreign Minister to a Battle of

0:02:170:02:22

Britain Museum today, a memorial to

a war fought in the air.

Every

0:02:220:02:28

single plane that Britain had was up

in the sky.

The Foreign Secretary

0:02:280:02:34

used the opportunity to push forward

Britain's current battle with

0:02:340:02:37

Russia, fought this time over the

airwaves, blaming Vladimir Putin

0:02:370:02:41

personally for the nerve agent

attack in Salisbury.

Our quarrel is

0:02:410:02:46

with Putin's Kremlin, and with his

decision. And we think it

0:02:460:02:51

overwhelmingly likely that it was

his decision to direct the use of a

0:02:510:02:55

nerve agent on the streets of the

UK, the streets of Europe, for the

0:02:550:03:00

first time since the Second World

War. That is why we are at odds with

0:03:000:03:04

Russia.

The Kremlin spokesmen issued

an angry statement, saying that

0:03:040:03:10

mentioning President Putin's name in

connection with the attack was

0:03:100:03:13

shocking and unpardonable dramatic

misconduct. The Kremlin also

0:03:130:03:18

confirmed that some British

diplomats based at the embassy in

0:03:180:03:21

Moscow would be expelled, and that

an announcement could come at any

0:03:210:03:24

moment. It is retaliation for the

UK's decision to expel 23 Russian

0:03:240:03:33

intelligence officers who will leave

London next Tuesday. Again, Russia's

0:03:330:03:37

Foreign Minister denied any

involvement in the Salisbury attack.

0:03:370:03:42

TRANSLATION:

I don't want to comment

on the current situation. Let it

0:03:420:03:46

stay on the conscience of those who

have started this shameless,

0:03:460:03:53

groundless business.

And as for the

language of the Defence Secretary?

0:03:530:03:58

TRANSLATION:

He says Russia should

go away and shut up. Maybe he lacks

0:03:580:04:03

education. I don't know.

Officials

at the Foreign Office believe the

0:04:030:04:08

robustness of written's response and

the unity of the Western allies has

0:04:080:04:12

surprised Russia, and they say they

are ready for any retaliation coming

0:04:120:04:16

from Moscow. As one source said, we

have more stuff in the locker. But

0:04:160:04:21

amid the diplomatic war of words,

the Metropolitan Police announced

0:04:210:04:25

that a Russian businessman who had

been found dead at his South West

0:04:250:04:28

London home on Monday, had been

murdered. The 68 it rolled Nikolai

0:04:280:04:34

Glushkov was a former associate of

known opponents of President Putin.

0:04:340:04:39

Detectives said they were keeping an

open mind but there was nothing to

0:04:390:04:42

link his death to the nerve agent

attack. In Salisbury, two weeks on,

0:04:420:04:47

police were still in protective gear

in investigating the attempted

0:04:470:04:51

murder of the former Russian

intelligence officer Sergei Skripal

0:04:510:04:55

and his daughter, Yulia, still

making the streets safe.

0:04:550:04:57

Our security correspondent

Gordon Corera is with me now.

0:04:570:04:59

Nikolai Glushkov, an exiled Russian

businessman in London

0:04:590:05:01

with an intriguing past in Moscow.

0:05:010:05:03

What more can you tell us about him?

0:05:030:05:08

Nikolai Glushkov was found at his

home on Monday night, dead. The

0:05:080:05:12

initial thought was that he may have

taken his own life. But the police,

0:05:120:05:20

given his background, put the

Counterterrorism Command on the

0:05:200:05:25

investigation and there was a

special postmortem yesterday which

0:05:250:05:27

today brought back details of the

cause of death as compression of the

0:05:270:05:31

neck, suggesting another person may

have been involved. The context is

0:05:310:05:36

that Nikolai Glushkov was a

controversial businessman who had

0:05:360:05:39

been put on trial in Russia in his

absence for large-scale embezzlement

0:05:390:05:42

and fraud. In the UK, he was linked

to Boris Berezovsky, another

0:05:420:05:47

businessman who had come to the UK,

a critic of Vladimir Putin, and

0:05:470:05:52

himself died in 2013. Nikolai

Glushkov have thought that death was

0:05:520:05:58

suspicious. Those circumstances have

put Counterterrorism Command in

0:05:580:06:02

charge of the investigation, but

they are stressing that there is no

0:06:020:06:04

link that they have found to the

events in Salisbury, and no

0:06:040:06:09

suggestion of any kind of poisoning

in this context and this

0:06:090:06:12

investigation. But clearly they will

be taking it seriously because of

0:06:120:06:18

the wider context of concerns about

threats to Russians in the UK at the

0:06:180:06:21

moment.

0:06:210:06:23

Steve Rosenberg is in Moscow.

0:06:230:06:24

What's the latest reaction

there to the developments here?

0:06:240:06:32

Well, here, we are still waiting for

Russia's retaliation to UK

0:06:320:06:39

sanctions. The Kremlin spokesmen

this morning suggested that an

0:06:390:06:41

announcement could come at any

moment, but he said that hours ago,

0:06:410:06:46

and there is still nothing. It feels

as if Moscow is in no hurry to

0:06:460:06:51

reveal its response. What we have

been hearing today are Russian

0:06:510:06:55

officials criticising British

government ministers. The Kremlin

0:06:550:06:59

slammed Boris Johnson. The Russian

Foreign Minister said Gavin

0:06:590:07:04

Williamson, the Defence Secretary,

was a nice young man who lacked

0:07:040:07:07

education. Meanwhile, Moscow

continues to pump out all kinds of

0:07:070:07:11

conspiracy theories about the attack

in Salisbury, which appear designed

0:07:110:07:17

to spread confusion and to sow

doubt. On Russian TV today, one

0:07:170:07:22

Russian official claimed the nerve

agent used in Salisbury have been

0:07:220:07:26

produced not in Russia but in

Britain or America. We have heard

0:07:260:07:30

other Russian officials suggest that

this whole drama has been dreamt up

0:07:300:07:33

by the British government to

distract attention from the problems

0:07:330:07:37

of Brexit.

Thank you.

0:07:370:07:39

Police say that 46 people have been

to Salisbury District Hospital

0:07:390:07:42

expressing concerns since

the attack, but none have been

0:07:420:07:44

admitted to hospital.

0:07:440:07:45

Investigators say they've identified

131 people who've potentially been

0:07:450:07:47

in contact with the nerve agent.

0:07:470:07:50

It's now 12 days since

the poisoning, and our correspondent

0:07:500:07:54

Duncan Kennedy is in Salisbury.

0:07:540:07:55

This will have had a sizeable

impact on the community

0:07:550:07:57

and local businesses.

0:07:570:08:05

Very much so, Fiona. Those numbers

showed just how many people have

0:08:060:08:13

been caught up in this incident over

the past two weeks. Yet again

0:08:130:08:17

tonight there is police activity all

over Salisbury. All of that activity

0:08:170:08:22

has led to a drop in the numbers

coming into Salisbury and is having

0:08:220:08:25

a negative affect on some of the

businesses here, although the city

0:08:250:08:29

says it is open and safe.

0:08:290:08:32

It has been an extraordinary two

weeks for the 50,000 people of

0:08:320:08:35

Salisbury, a city that attracts

4 million visitors to its medieval

0:08:350:08:39

riches, but a city now redefined

by its connection with espionage and

0:08:390:08:42

poison.

0:08:420:08:47

The unwanted attention

is harming local businesses,

0:08:470:08:49

like this fudge shop.

0:08:490:08:53

It is half a mile from the scene

of the nerve agent attack.

0:08:530:08:56

Even here, customers

have disappeared.

0:08:560:08:59

We're at least two thirds

down in terms of taking.

0:08:590:09:01

The street are pretty much empty.

0:09:010:09:07

Charity shops are also suffering.

0:09:070:09:10

This one helps children

with life-threatening illnesses.

0:09:100:09:14

Sales are down 70%.

Just how bad is business?

0:09:140:09:19

These little children rely

on our little shops to actually make

0:09:190:09:21

a difference to them.

0:09:210:09:27

So I really need to try and get

all the customers back in.

0:09:270:09:31

Even the homeless are feeling

helpless because of

0:09:310:09:33

the drop in numbers.

0:09:330:09:35

How much fewer people

do think are coming?

0:09:350:09:38

50%.

0:09:380:09:39

50%, yes, definitely.

0:09:390:09:42

What does that mean

for what you earn?

0:09:420:09:44

I don't earn much at all.

Not much at all.

0:09:440:09:48

Last night, local

councillors agreed a

0:09:480:09:51

package of measures to help

the city, including

0:09:510:09:53

free park-and-ride.

0:09:530:09:58

Most here say the police presence

doesn't bother them.

0:09:580:10:06

Seeing all this police activity

wouldn't stop you coming?

0:10:090:10:11

No, not at all.

0:10:110:10:12

I hope it doesn't put

people off using the

0:10:120:10:14

local businesses.

0:10:140:10:15

You don't have any worries

walking around the city?

0:10:150:10:18

No, none at all.

I'm fine with it.

0:10:180:10:20

This city may be at the centre

of an unprecedented investigation.

0:10:200:10:23

But the message it wants

to give is that it

0:10:230:10:25

is safe and open.

0:10:250:10:26

An Iraqi teenager, who sought asylum

in the UK as a child,

0:10:260:10:28

has been found guilty

of the London Tube bombing

0:10:280:10:31

at Parson's Green.

0:10:310:10:32

18-year-old Ahmed Hassan

left his bomb on a packed

0:10:320:10:34

Underground train during rush hour.

0:10:340:10:35

The device only partially detonated,

but injured 50 people.

0:10:350:10:37

It's emerged that Hassan

was on the government's

0:10:370:10:39

de-radicalisation programme,

Prevent, while he was

0:10:390:10:42

plotting the attack.

0:10:420:10:44

The government says

there are lessons to be

0:10:440:10:46

learned from the case.

0:10:460:10:47

June Kelly reports.

0:10:470:10:50

Ahmed Hassan buying batteries

and screwdrivers in Asda -

0:10:500:10:54

everyday items but, for a violent

extremist, part

0:10:540:10:57

of his bomb-making kit.

0:10:570:10:59

He's asked for ID.

0:10:590:11:01

He may have looked young but Hassan

is said to be mature, highly

0:11:010:11:04

intelligent and calculating.

0:11:040:11:08

CCTV cameras captured

his journey as the

0:11:080:11:10

following morning he left home early

with his bomb in a bag and a

0:11:100:11:14

murderous plan in his head.

0:11:140:11:19

He was setting off to cause carnage

on the London Underground system.

0:11:190:11:25

He made for a train and then,

a few stops down the District Line,

0:11:250:11:28

he got off, empty-handed,

his bomb on a timer left behind.

0:11:280:11:32

Just after the train pulled

into Parsons Green station,

0:11:320:11:35

the bomb detonated, creating

a massive fireball which rolled

0:11:350:11:37

down the carriage.

0:11:370:11:44

Passengers were left burning

and screaming in pain.

0:11:440:11:46

A gassy flare ran up

above my head, singed my hair.

0:11:460:11:50

There was panic all

around me on the train.

0:11:500:11:53

People were diving off the train.

0:11:530:11:58

Fortunately the doors

were open so I managed to

0:11:580:12:00

get off the train.

0:12:000:12:01

My initial reaction

was that there was a fault

0:12:010:12:03

on the train rather than a device.

0:12:030:12:05

Hassan had strapped

shrapnel to the device -

0:12:050:12:07

nuts, bolts, screws and knives

to cause maximum death and injury.

0:12:070:12:13

It was said to be pure luck that his

bomb only partially exploded.

0:12:130:12:16

This computer-generated graphic

shows the scene in the

0:12:160:12:18

carriage after the attack.

0:12:180:12:21

He had used the explosive TATP,

known as Mother of Satan.

0:12:210:12:27

At Parsons Green a major emergency

operation got under way.

0:12:270:12:32

Terrified passengers

were taken off the train,

0:12:320:12:34

injured commuters carried out

of the station.

0:12:340:12:36

Meanwhile, the teenage bomber left

London and went on the run.

0:12:360:12:41

The year before he declared

it was his duty to hate Britain

0:12:410:12:44

because his father had been killed

by coalition forces in Iraq.

0:12:440:12:48

At the time of his attack

he was on the government's

0:12:480:12:51

de-radicalisation programme,

Prevent, aimed at turning people

0:12:510:12:52

away from terrorism.

0:12:520:12:59

He was very cunning and devious and,

on the face of it, Hassan

0:12:590:13:02

was engaged on the programme

but coming back to his devious

0:13:020:13:05

nature, he kept it very secretive

in relation to what he was doing,

0:13:050:13:08

what he was planning,

and nobody around him actually

0:13:080:13:10

knew what his plot was.

0:13:100:13:13

24 hours on from the attack,

firearms officers were surrounding

0:13:130:13:16

Hassan's house in Sunbury in Surrey.

0:13:160:13:21

Inside were his petrified

elderly foster parents,

0:13:210:13:23

Penny and Ron Jones.

0:13:230:13:24

This was a couple who had received

MBEs from the Queen for fostering

0:13:240:13:27

hundreds of children.

0:13:270:13:30

Ahmed Hassan repaid them

for giving him a home by secretly

0:13:300:13:32

building a bomb in their kitchen.

0:13:320:13:36

And it came out in court that

the teenager staying in their spare

0:13:360:13:39

bedroom had told immigration

officials he had been kidnapped and

0:13:390:13:42

trained to kill by the

Islamic State group.

0:13:420:13:46

It is understood the Joneses

were not given his full story.

0:13:460:13:50

After the bombing,

Hassan headed for Dover.

0:13:500:13:54

He was arrested as he tried to flee

the country which had given

0:13:540:13:57

him a home and an education

but for which he felt only hatred.

0:13:570:14:01

He will be sentenced next week.

0:14:010:14:09

How was it that a programmme

designed to prevent him taking part

0:14:090:14:11

in terror activity failed to spot

that he was planning a terror

0:14:110:14:14

attack at that very time?

0:14:140:14:20

It is extraordinary. From his first

immigration interview alarm bells

0:14:200:14:24

were ringing over Hassan. He said he

had been trained to kill by Islamic

0:14:240:14:28

State fighters. He was caught

looking at IS propaganda on his

0:14:280:14:33

phone, and was understood to have

sent money to them, and he told his

0:14:330:14:36

tutor it was his duty to hate

Britain. He was then under the

0:14:360:14:42

control of Surrey County Council,

who were looking after his welfare,

0:14:420:14:45

and they decided he was a candidate

for the government de-radicalisation

0:14:450:14:50

programme, Prevent. But we are told

he did not have a specialist

0:14:500:14:53

mentors. So at the same time as he

was seemingly engaged on the

0:14:530:14:58

programme, he was building a bomb.

Surrey County Council have

0:14:580:15:02

apologised for shortcomings, saying

lessons have been learned and

0:15:020:15:05

improvements made. They have also

apologised to the foster couple.

0:15:050:15:09

They say they were told about his

background. We have been told they

0:15:090:15:13

were not given the full picture.

0:15:130:15:15

South Africa's former president

Jacob Zuma is to face prosecution

0:15:150:15:17

for 16 charges of corruption

relating to a multi-billion dollar

0:15:170:15:20

arms deal before he took office.

0:15:200:15:23

The charges, which Mr Zuma denies,

include counts of fraud,

0:15:230:15:25

racketeering and money laundering.

0:15:250:15:27

Mr Zuma was forced

to resign last month.

0:15:270:15:34

Syria's government is urging people

to leave the last rebel-held

0:15:340:15:37

areas of Eastern Ghouta,

as thousands flee for their lives.

0:15:370:15:43

Dozens have died in renewed

shelling, and the Syrian army says

0:15:430:15:46

it has retaken 70% of

the territory from the rebels.

0:15:460:15:49

Some 20,000 people have been

forced from their homes.

0:15:490:15:55

In Florida, at least six people have

been killed after a newly built

0:15:550:15:58

bridge collapsed onto a busy

road in Miami.

0:15:580:16:00

The bridge had been put up in six

hours just six days ago

0:16:000:16:03

using a method called "accelerated

construction" to avoid

0:16:030:16:05

traffic disruption.

0:16:050:16:11

Ten people have been taken

to hospital, and the emergency

0:16:110:16:13

services have been working

at the scene since last night.

0:16:130:16:15

Here's how the disaster unfolded.

0:16:150:16:18

The bridge at FIU just

collapsed out of nowhere.

0:16:200:16:22

There's cars stuck under there.

0:16:220:16:29

We tried to get people

out but we couldn't.

0:16:380:16:40

They were all stuck.

0:16:400:16:43

Two construction workers also

fell from the crane.

0:16:430:16:45

I mean, it was horrible,

it was a disaster.

0:16:450:16:48

What I saw was it slowly coming

down, and the dust and the cement

0:16:480:16:52

just shattering on top of the cars.

0:16:520:16:58

We exhausted last night

all of our search and rescue

0:17:070:17:11

capabilities in the hopes

of finding additional survivors.

0:17:110:17:15

We used auditory, we used visual,

we used our canines,

0:17:150:17:20

and we determined that there is no

longer any survivors.

0:17:200:17:22

That's why we transitioned

into this recovery mode.

0:17:220:17:28

The time is just after a quarter

past six.

0:17:350:17:38

Our top story this evening...

0:17:380:17:40

Police have launched a murder

inquiry into the death

0:17:400:17:42

of a Russian businessman,

apparently strangled

0:17:420:17:43

in his London home.

0:17:430:17:44

And still to come...

0:17:440:17:48

The three-mile duel that

saw Native River win

0:17:480:17:50

the Gold Cup at Cheltenham.

0:17:500:17:53

Coming up in Six Nations Sports

Direct later we look at the final

0:17:560:18:01

weekend in this year's tournament

with Ireland the champions but can

0:18:010:18:06

they do the grand slam -- sports

day.

0:18:060:18:11

It's an industry that's estimated

to generate more than £300 million

0:18:140:18:16

a year and it's growing fast.

0:18:160:18:18

And last night, the best

in the animation industry were

0:18:180:18:21

celebrated at their annual awards.

0:18:210:18:23

A record number of women

were nominated this year.

0:18:230:18:27

One of the winners, Paloma Baeza,

believes more needs to be done

0:18:270:18:30

to encourage young women

to be animators.

0:18:300:18:32

Chi Chi Izundu went to meet her.

0:18:320:18:36

Hiya!

0:18:360:18:39

It's an enemies to friends story.

0:18:390:18:41

So nice to finally

have some company.

0:18:410:18:44

A polar bear and a grizzly bear

forced into survival together

0:18:440:18:47

because of their changing

environments.

0:18:470:18:48

We could team up!

0:18:480:18:49

Four paws better than two, right?

0:18:490:18:53

But this year's winner

for the favourite film

0:18:530:18:55

at the British Animation Awards says

it's important more women

0:18:550:18:58

in the industry are given

opportunity to create.

0:18:580:19:01

Young women coming up,

even little girls coming up feel

0:19:010:19:05

that this is something

that is achievable.

0:19:050:19:09

So it is important,

it is important because it puts it

0:19:090:19:13

there as a possibility as opposed

to feeling swamped in a world

0:19:130:19:18

where it feels unattainable.

0:19:180:19:21

According to 2017 figures,

the animation industry

0:19:210:19:24

employs around 7750 people.

0:19:240:19:26

Out of that number, just

over 2300 are women.

0:19:260:19:31

But look at the percentage

of creators in comparison to back

0:19:310:19:34

office roles for women -

only 21% are animators.

0:19:340:19:37

The rest work in distribution,

sales and marketing.

0:19:370:19:42

Demand for animation is increasing

with the growing popularity

0:19:420:19:45

of streaming and immersive

experiences like augmented reality

0:19:450:19:47

and virtual reality.

0:19:470:19:51

And Paloma says that should create

more chances for female-led stories.

0:19:510:19:58

What we all want in the industry

is for equality so it's not

0:19:580:20:01

a situation where a woman

is being hired

0:20:010:20:03

because she's a woman.

0:20:030:20:05

Really, parity and equality

comes from opportunity

0:20:050:20:09

and equal opportunity and it

being an even playing field.

0:20:090:20:11

The last of the dried supplies.

0:20:110:20:15

Chi Chi Izundu, BBC News.

0:20:150:20:18

The clothing chain Topman

has apologised for any

0:20:220:20:25

offence that was caused,

after criticism that

0:20:250:20:27

a T-shirt it had been selling

could be seen to refer

0:20:270:20:30

to the Hillsborough disaster.

0:20:300:20:31

The red top, which has now been

withdrawn from sale,

0:20:310:20:34

has a large 96 on the back

and is being interpreted by some

0:20:340:20:37

Liverpool fans as a reference

to the number of people who died

0:20:370:20:40

in the 1989 disaster.

0:20:400:20:42

Topman say the design was inspired

by a Bob Marley song.

0:20:420:20:47

The Royal College of Nursing says

hundreds of nursing students at nine

0:20:470:20:50

universities have been hit

with errors in their

0:20:500:20:52

student loan payments.

0:20:520:20:57

The students were told they'd been

overpaid between £600 and £5,000

0:20:570:21:00

by the Student Loans Company

and to expect no more

0:21:000:21:02

payments this year.

0:21:020:21:04

Some students say they've been left

struggling to pay bills and rent.

0:21:040:21:08

The father of a female engineering

student allegedly attacked

0:21:080:21:11

by a group of women in Nottingham

has called for "justice"

0:21:110:21:14

for his daughter.

0:21:140:21:15

18-year-old Mariam Moustafa died

on Wednesday, nearly a month

0:21:150:21:18

after she was assaulted on a bus

in the city centre.

0:21:180:21:21

Nottinghamshire Police says

there is nothing to suggest

0:21:210:21:23

it was a hate crime,

although they are

0:21:230:21:25

"keeping an open mind".

0:21:250:21:26

Sima Kotecha sent us

the latest from Nottingham.

0:21:260:21:32

18-year-old Mariam Moustafa, an

engineering student in Nottingham.

0:21:320:21:35

Her family are from Egypt and came

here for a better life.

0:21:350:21:41

Her sister and father

described her as loving,

0:21:410:21:43

cheerful and intelligent.

0:21:430:21:47

Mariam was always looking

up, looking forward

0:21:470:21:48

for being in engineering.

0:21:480:21:50

She was a hard worker.

0:21:500:21:53

She always put all her effort

to being in engineering.

0:21:530:21:58

In February, as the teenager

was making her way to see her mother

0:21:580:22:01

and sister, she was attacked.

0:22:010:22:03

She caught a bus on this street

to try to get away from the girls.

0:22:030:22:07

However, they followed her.

0:22:070:22:08

Police say she was

punched several times.

0:22:080:22:10

She died on Wednesday.

0:22:100:22:16

This footage on social media shows

what happened on the bus.

0:22:160:22:19

You move out of my way,

you move out of my way.

0:22:190:22:26

Yesterday police said there was no

information at this stage

0:22:260:22:28

to suggest it was a hate crime

but that they were

0:22:280:22:31

keeping an open mind.

0:22:310:22:36

She was discharged from hospital

after the attack but then she fell

0:22:360:22:39

ill and was readmitted.

0:22:390:22:40

That's when she went into a coma.

0:22:400:22:43

The family gave us these pictures.

0:22:430:22:49

For me to now think that she's gone,

I still feel like she's around me,

0:22:490:22:53

I feel like she's going to come

knocking on the door.

0:22:530:22:56

But that's not happening.

0:22:560:23:03

The Egyptian government,

as well as her family,

0:23:050:23:08

have called on the UK authorities

to bring those who did

0:23:080:23:11

this to justice quickly.

0:23:110:23:13

A 17-year-old girl was arrested

on suspicion of assault but has been

0:23:130:23:16

released on conditional bail.

0:23:160:23:19

In a tweet this afternoon,

the Foreign Secretary,

0:23:190:23:24

Boris Johnson, assured the Egyptian

authorities that Nottinghamshire

0:23:240:23:26

Police was investigating the case.

0:23:260:23:29

Sima Kotecha, BBC News, Nottingham.

0:23:290:23:35

The first polar bear cub born

in Britain for a quarter

0:23:350:23:38

of a century has been filmed

for the first time after

0:23:380:23:41

being born in December

in the Scottish Highlands.

0:23:410:23:43

As you can see, mum

and cub are doing well.

0:23:430:23:48

The footage was captured by remote

cameras for a Channel 4 documentary.

0:23:480:23:50

Highland Wildlife Park is yet

to find out if the cub is a boy

0:23:500:23:54

or a girl, but it's already proving

to be a confident and

0:23:540:23:57

curious little character.

0:23:570:24:00

In a thrilling two-horse race

finale, Native River,

0:24:000:24:03

ridden by champion jockey

Richard Johnson, has beaten

0:24:030:24:05

the favourite, Might Bite,

to win the Gold Cup at Cheltenham.

0:24:050:24:08

It's Johnson's second Gold Cup win

and comes nearly two

0:24:080:24:10

decades after his first.

0:24:100:24:12

Our Sports Correspondent,

Andy Swiss, was there

0:24:120:24:14

to see all the action.

0:24:140:24:15

Andy.

0:24:150:24:19

It was an incredible battle from

start to finish.

0:24:190:24:22

Cheltenham has seen some

extraordinary battles over the years

0:24:260:24:28

but this was right up there, two

forces leading from start to finish

0:24:280:24:32

but in the end the day and the Gold

Cup belongs to Native River.

0:24:320:24:40

In racing you need that bit

of optimism and with what seemed

0:24:400:24:43

like the most open of Gold Cups...

0:24:430:24:45

Any more bets?

0:24:450:24:47

Punters certainly required it.

0:24:470:24:49

So many factors,

not least the soggy,

0:24:490:24:51

stamina-sapping conditions.

0:24:510:24:54

But while there were 15

runners, this proved

0:24:540:24:56

the ultimate two-horse race.

0:24:560:24:59

In the white nose band Native River,

and next to him Might Bite.

0:24:590:25:03

The rest mere observers

as fence after fence,

0:25:030:25:05

furlong after furlong,

they slugged it out.

0:25:050:25:09

Going into the last,

seemingly inseparable...

0:25:090:25:11

Who will prevail on

the Cheltenham hill?

0:25:110:25:13

Native River and Might Bite...

0:25:130:25:16

But on that final, gruelling

gradient it was Native River

0:25:160:25:19

who edged ahead, a remarkable duel

and a remarkable victory.

0:25:190:25:22

He wins the Gold Cup!

0:25:220:25:28

For jockey Richard Johnson,

a second Gold Cup win some 18

0:25:280:25:30

years after his first.

0:25:300:25:32

This was even sweeter.

0:25:320:25:38

I'm still a bit speechless now.

0:25:380:25:40

The first time I don't think

I realised how amazing

0:25:400:25:43

it was and how hard it is.

0:25:430:25:45

18 years later, you realise just

to get one of these horse to ride,

0:25:450:25:48

let alone to win the race,

is very difficult.

0:25:480:25:50

And delight too for Dorset

trainer Colin Tizzard -

0:25:500:25:53

once a dairy farmer and now part

of a Gold Cup winning team on a day

0:25:530:25:57

when leading from the start

produced the perfect finish.

0:25:570:25:59

Andy Swiss, BBC News, Cheltenham.

0:25:590:26:03

Time for a look at the weather.

0:26:030:26:05

Here's Sarah Keith-Lucas.

0:26:050:26:09

It has been like a spring day in

London but snow is on the way?

0:26:090:26:15

What a contrast tomorrow is going to

be, there has been some spring

0:26:150:26:19

sunshine for some, but some snow in

the north but in the south it has

0:26:190:26:22

felt pleasant. This was the sunset

in Kent. This is set to be the calm

0:26:220:26:30

before the snow because things will

turn more wintry over the weekend, a

0:26:300:26:35

dip in temperature with snow and ice

with the Met Office issuing amber

0:26:350:26:39

warnings and disruption is likely

because of it. We have some snow

0:26:390:26:43

showers already in Scotland, rain

further south in north-east England

0:26:430:26:48

but moving through tonight 's those

snow showers fall too low levels and

0:26:480:26:52

push further south west. For many it

will be a subzero start of the

0:26:520:26:57

weekend, some snow showers from the

word go and we will continue to is

0:26:570:27:01

it the cold air coming in. High

pressure in Scandinavia and the

0:27:010:27:06

easterly winds rolling around. On

Saturday, snow showers from the word

0:27:060:27:12

go across southern England, south

Wales as well and with the easterly

0:27:120:27:15

wind a mix of Sunnis above and

scattered snow showers almost

0:27:150:27:20

anywhere. Tempered is struggling to

get much above freezing and with the

0:27:200:27:24

wind chill it can feel as -8. The

driest weather probably in Northern

0:27:240:27:32

Ireland and western Scotland but

elsewhere we could have some heavy

0:27:320:27:36

and disrupted snow. These are the

amber warnings for ice and snow,

0:27:360:27:41

particularly these three regions,

but you could see some disruptive

0:27:410:27:46

snow almost anywhere. Moving into

Sunday, still be easterly wind

0:27:460:27:50

bringing further snow showers, some

brighter weather coming in from the

0:27:500:27:54

East later. Another very cold day,

particularly when you are exposed to

0:27:540:27:59

the biting easterly wind.

0:27:590:28:02

A reminder of our main story...

0:28:020:28:03

A reminder of our main story...

0:28:030:28:04

Police have launched a murder

inquiry into the death

0:28:040:28:06

of a Russian businessman,

apparently strangled

0:28:060:28:08

in his London home.

0:28:080:28:10

That's all from the BBC News at Six

so it's goodbye from me

0:28:100:28:13

and on BBC One we now join the BBC's

news teams where you are.

0:28:130:28:22
