The attempted murder of a police officer in Belfast.

:00:16.:00:19.

The Chief Constable describes the gun attack as reckless.

the people who did this did not care whether or who they murdered last

night. Michelle O'Neill is the new Northern

:00:36.:00:35.

leader of Sinn Fein Whenever I was growing up in Tyrone

:00:36.:00:44.

as the teenager, if anyone had ever said to need that some stage in the

:00:45.:00:48.

future I would be leading Sinn Fein in the north I probably would not

:00:49.:00:54.

have believed them. What more do we know about Michelle O'Neill? I have

:00:55.:00:57.

come to her home village in County Tyrone.

:00:58.:00:58.

The biggest local manufacturer of wood pellets here shared

:00:59.:01:00.

information about tariff changes in the RHI scheme before

A man who sexually assaulted young girls in a public swimming pool

Ireland look to some new faces in the Six Nations as Ulster

:01:07.:01:10.

And we've got some rain on the way later tonight,

:01:11.:01:14.

but that should keep the frost away. I'll be back with a full forecast.

:01:15.:01:23.

Last night's gun attack on a police patrol was at a busy petrol

:01:24.:01:26.

One of the officers was wounded in the arm and is said to be

:01:27.:01:31.

The Chief Constable has described the shooting as reckless.

:01:32.:01:35.

In a statement released in the last few minutes,

:01:36.:01:37.

the police say they've recovered several bullets from other cars that

:01:38.:01:40.

Images taken in the immediate aftermath of the shooting. Packed

:01:41.:01:58.

with cars underlines just how busy the garage was at the time.

:01:59.:02:02.

Automatic gunfire was spread across the forecourt, first aid equipment

:02:03.:02:07.

still the ground. This is the security operation afterwords. A

:02:08.:02:11.

police officer with his weapon aimed towards the main road. The policeman

:02:12.:02:15.

was hit twice in the arm, he had an operation this morning and will

:02:16.:02:19.

require further surgery. The Chief Constable spoke to the media shortly

:02:20.:02:24.

after visiting him in hospital. We as police officers are citizens in

:02:25.:02:35.

uniform. This officer was a member of the community. He was attacked

:02:36.:02:37.

but other members of the community were at risk as well. The people who

:02:38.:02:40.

did this did not care who they murdered last night, albeit it was

:02:41.:02:43.

clear that the attack was aimed at the police officers on duty. The

:02:44.:02:47.

shooting happened at around 730 last night. The area was still busy with

:02:48.:02:53.

people, among them this eyewitness. We were coming around the corner and

:02:54.:02:57.

shots were going off. We didn't know it was shot first, we thought it was

:02:58.:03:01.

fireworks. It was consistent and I knew something was wrong. The

:03:02.:03:11.

officer's body armour might have saved him from something more

:03:12.:03:13.

serious. Dissident republican I being blamed. It was also described

:03:14.:03:15.

as reckless. This threat against officers has been severe for some

:03:16.:03:19.

time. We cannot be complacent about the nature of this type of attack

:03:20.:03:22.

but it does concern me that others are trying to take advantage of the

:03:23.:03:28.

political instability taking year at Stormont. A short time ago this

:03:29.:03:32.

image was released of what the police think was the card used in

:03:33.:03:36.

the attack. They are appealing for witnesses. -- car.

:03:37.:03:39.

Our home affairs correspondent Vincent Kearney is with me now.

:03:40.:03:41.

The officers were among customers, including children.

:03:42.:03:43.

How fortunate were all in that station?

:03:44.:03:46.

They were very fortunate indeed. This is a very busy forecourt, lots

:03:47.:03:56.

of cards. These weren't small calibre handguns. High velocity

:03:57.:04:00.

shots fired from an assault rifle. When they hit the target, they do an

:04:01.:04:06.

incredible amount of damage. The police have said the body armour

:04:07.:04:10.

worn by this officer was sent off for forensic investigation and it

:04:11.:04:15.

was said that the bullet hit the armour. He was very fortunate

:04:16.:04:19.

indeed. It does an incredible amount of damage these bullets.

:04:20.:04:20.

The Justice Minister is concerned this attack may be being linked

:04:21.:04:23.

What's the police service's assessment of that?

:04:24.:04:29.

The police have always been concerned dissidents will try to

:04:30.:04:34.

fill the political vacuum. We are not working on the bases this was

:04:35.:04:38.

something organised quickly on the spot due to the collapse of the

:04:39.:04:42.

assembly. We have to remember this is the series of attacks in Belfast

:04:43.:04:47.

in recent years. There have been attacks and attempted attacks using

:04:48.:04:52.

AK-47 rifles, home-made rocket launchers, home-made bombs, it is

:04:53.:04:55.

the latest in a pattern rather than a one-off. The Chief Constable

:04:56.:04:58.

George Hamilton said he does not believe this is opportunistic that

:04:59.:05:02.

something well planned. Those who carried out this attack are likely

:05:03.:05:05.

to have been watching these police officers for some time looking for

:05:06.:05:09.

signs. The properly carried out some kind of dry run to check afterwords.

:05:10.:05:14.

Not the kind of attack planned very quickly in response to what happened

:05:15.:05:19.

in Stormont in the past week or two. Police will be concerned that this

:05:20.:05:23.

has been in the planning for quite some time. Thank you.

:05:24.:05:25.

Sinn Fein's Michelle O'Neill said today she is "following in

:05:26.:05:27.

The current Health Minister is replacing Martin McGuinness

:05:28.:05:30.

as the party's leader north of the border.

:05:31.:05:32.

At a news conference this afternoon she said she had never been afraid

:05:33.:05:35.

of a challenge and never afraid to act.

:05:36.:05:37.

BBC Newsline's Mark Simpson takes at look at the new leader.

:05:38.:05:48.

His report contains flash photography.

:05:49.:05:53.

A new generation and a new era for Sinn Fein. The leadership role of

:05:54.:06:00.

the assembly and to Michelle O'Neill. It is a big day and for me

:06:01.:06:05.

when I was growing up in Tyrone as a teenager, if anyone had ever said to

:06:06.:06:09.

me that at some stage in the future I would be leading Sinn Fein in the

:06:10.:06:12.

north, I would not have believed them. I have worked with Martin

:06:13.:06:17.

throughout all of my adult life. I have no doubt I am following in the

:06:18.:06:20.

footsteps of the political giant. The man is a legend. He said if you

:06:21.:06:29.

words himself. I haven't gone away, you know.

:06:30.:06:37.

CHEERING I am overjoyed she is our leader and

:06:38.:06:45.

overjoyed she is my leader. She will have my fullest wholehearted

:06:46.:06:46.

dedicated and committed support. Michelle O'Neill knows that

:06:47.:06:48.

all eyes are on her now. Her life may never quite

:06:49.:06:50.

be the same again. She worked her way through the ranks

:06:51.:06:55.

of Sinn Fein at Dungannon Council Here she is ten years ago arriving

:06:56.:06:58.

in her new office at Stormont. My two kids are 13 and eight and

:06:59.:07:11.

loving that I'm coming here today. All excited this morning and up

:07:12.:07:15.

early this morning for money's first day at work.

:07:16.:07:17.

She later became Agriculture Minister and clearly impressed

:07:18.:07:19.

So much so that she was given the Health Ministry

:07:20.:07:23.

at the last election, a spot she seemed to relish.

:07:24.:07:26.

I am just delighted. She says she is also very proud to come from County

:07:27.:07:36.

Tyrone and this is her home village. People in the village who know her

:07:37.:07:40.

and let's leave that everyone does say she has three interests, her

:07:41.:07:46.

family, the local GAA club and of course politics. She comes from a

:07:47.:07:50.

strong Republican family in east Tyrone and as popular here. All the

:07:51.:07:57.

best. Sinn Fein councillor runs the local pub. There is no better person

:07:58.:08:05.

for the job. I think Arlene Foster needs to watch yourself. Michelle is

:08:06.:08:13.

very capable. When it comes to crisis management, Michelle O'Neill

:08:14.:08:14.

now faces her biggest challenge. The biggest manufacturer of wood

:08:15.:08:17.

pellets in Northern Ireland has confirmed that it shared information

:08:18.:08:20.

about proposed tariff changes in the RHI scheme two months before

:08:21.:08:24.

they were officially announced. Balcas, based in Ballinamallard,

:08:25.:08:29.

County Fermanagh said there was "nothing

:08:30.:08:33.

sinister" in the move. It said it was not aware at any

:08:34.:08:36.

stage that the information it had Here's our agriculture

:08:37.:08:39.

and environment correspondent, Company-mac is a big player in the

:08:40.:08:55.

wood pellet business and makes and sells 150,000 tonnes of boiler fuel

:08:56.:09:00.

every year. In County Fermanagh and Scotland. It is an industry leader.

:09:01.:09:05.

Now it's emerged in July 2015 it circulated information that had been

:09:06.:09:09.

given about proposed changes to the tariff several months before they

:09:10.:09:13.

were publicly announced. Last week, the permanent Secretary of the

:09:14.:09:16.

Department for the economy doctor Andrew McCormick said e-mails he had

:09:17.:09:20.

been sent anonymously should the industry knew in advance about the

:09:21.:09:31.

changes. He said that information appear to have come from officials

:09:32.:09:33.

in his department. The consequences are very serious because this shows

:09:34.:09:35.

there was premature awareness of the potential for the tariff to be

:09:36.:09:38.

reduced and the message went within the sector quick. The BBC has seen

:09:39.:09:43.

two e-mails apparently circulated within the renewables industry in

:09:44.:09:48.

July 20 15. Today, company-mac confirmed one of them had been

:09:49.:09:50.

written by a member of its management at a time when

:09:51.:09:53.

departmental officials were working on plans to make the scheme less

:09:54.:09:58.

profitable. In the e-mail, the manager passed on information to one

:09:59.:10:01.

renewables company which apparently came from another and were said to

:10:02.:10:04.

have spoken to a senior departmental official. The Balcas manager said...

:10:05.:10:20.

Referring to the possibility of a two tier tariff, the manager

:10:21.:10:21.

added... Following questions from the BBC

:10:22.:10:37.

about the e-mail, Balcas and a statement this morning and said it

:10:38.:10:41.

was passing on information from the department that was responsible in a

:10:42.:10:44.

scheme that had been heavily promoted. The company underlined at

:10:45.:10:50.

no time was that information presented as confidential.

:10:51.:10:53.

Acknowledging that serious error in the scheme led to the potential for

:10:54.:11:04.

abuse, it said... We asked the Department for the economy if any

:11:05.:11:07.

action had been taken in respect of its official named in the e-mail. A

:11:08.:11:11.

spokesperson said as the issue was under investigation it would be

:11:12.:11:12.

inappropriate to comment. Assembly Members have been debating

:11:13.:11:14.

the Economy Minister's plan to cut the projected ?490 million loss

:11:15.:11:17.

to the public purse Our political editor Mark Devenport

:11:18.:11:20.

is at Parliament Buildings. Is there any conclusion

:11:21.:11:27.

yet to the debate about the renewable heat scheme,

:11:28.:11:29.

Mark? No. This was a scheme at the start

:11:30.:11:38.

debating last week when they thought the Secretary of State Michael

:11:39.:11:40.

Stoney assembly quickly. They got extra time and were able to adjourn,

:11:41.:11:46.

come back to the debate. Simon Hamilton's ideas today. They started

:11:47.:11:51.

at half past 12 today. During the course of the day we heard the

:11:52.:11:56.

special adviser came up with the basic idea of cutting the cost of

:11:57.:12:01.

this scheme which is projected to lose ?490 million but will be a lot

:12:02.:12:04.

less of the adopted these regulations. We heard from the

:12:05.:12:08.

former minister Jonathan Bell who was talking about special advisers,

:12:09.:12:14.

he was accusing DUP rises of delaying the closure of the scheme.

:12:15.:12:19.

He said the study about the senior GDP special adviser Timothy

:12:20.:12:23.

Johnston. Members on the DV benchers to my left kept open because Timothy

:12:24.:12:28.

Johnston's brother was installing the boilers. I am not getting into

:12:29.:12:33.

who is what family member was in Stormont. If these members to the

:12:34.:12:37.

left have information they are not going to try and felt it through me,

:12:38.:12:41.

they've got to stand up and tell it like I had to stand up and tell it.

:12:42.:12:46.

We got a complete denial from the DUP that allegation from their

:12:47.:12:50.

former minister. They said Timothy Johnston's brother does not and

:12:51.:12:53.

never has installed boilers, does not reckon the sector and has not

:12:54.:12:58.

been involved in any renewable heat incentives. We challenged Mr Bell to

:12:59.:13:01.

produce a shred of evidence outside the chamber.

:13:02.:13:01.

DUP figures have previously declared interests in the scheme.

:13:02.:13:04.

What's the development this evening with the Ulster Unionists?

:13:05.:13:11.

Over the weekend, Jim Wells said four of his relatives were

:13:12.:13:15.

recipients in the scheme. Tonight the Ulster Unionist Party said the

:13:16.:13:22.

aunt and uncle of the MLA were also recipients in their family business

:13:23.:13:26.

and they said a former Ella -- MLA had a wood pellet boiler in his

:13:27.:13:28.

family business as well. The new Sinn Fein leader,

:13:29.:13:29.

how is her appointment likely to go down with Sinn Fein,

:13:30.:13:32.

their supporters and other It certainly seemed to energise the

:13:33.:13:41.

Sinn Fein supporters gathered in the gallery here at Stormont when the

:13:42.:13:45.

announcement was made. It was presented as a generational change.

:13:46.:13:48.

It will be a challenging time over the next three teams first Michelle

:13:49.:13:52.

O'Neill she will have to go and fight an election campaign and it

:13:53.:13:55.

will be interesting to see how the party divvies up the various demands

:13:56.:13:58.

between manifesto launches and debates between her and other senior

:13:59.:14:05.

members. Tonight another women party leader of the Alliance party

:14:06.:14:07.

congratulated Michelle O'Neill saying she trusts she is willing to

:14:08.:14:12.

work with others and see stability restored in these institutions.

:14:13.:14:15.

Michelle O'Neill answered, thank you, I am committed to making the

:14:16.:14:19.

institution worked on the basis of equality, respect and integrity.

:14:20.:14:23.

You're watching BBC Newsline and still ahead:

A man has appeared in court charged with murdering a woman

:14:39.:14:40.

David Lyness, with an address at Toberhewny Hall in Lurgan,

:15:03.:15:05.

spoke only to confirm his name and that he understood the charge.

:15:06.:15:08.

The solicitor told the court there would be no bail application today.

:15:09.:15:11.

The police were called to a house in Toberhewny Hall

:15:12.:15:13.

in Lurgan in the early hours of Friday morning.

:15:14.:15:15.

There, the body of Anita Downey was found and a murder

No further details were given in court and Mr Lyness

:15:19.:15:21.

He'll appear again by video link in Craigavon next month.

A man died in an overnight car crash on the dual carriageway

:15:30.:15:32.

No other vehicle was involved in the incident near Ballyrobert.

:15:33.:15:37.

A 94-year-old woman has died in a house fire in County Armagh.

:15:38.:15:40.

Fire crews were called to Bay View in Jonesborough at around half

:15:41.:15:44.

The police say it's thought the fire was not started deliberately.

A man who sexually assaulted three young girls in a public swimming

:16:02.:16:03.

pool in Enniskillen has been jailed for seven months.

:16:04.:16:09.

Cristian Diaz, who is 35 years old and originally from Spain,

:16:10.:16:15.

moved to the town two years ago to improve his English.

:16:16.:16:17.

Here's our south-west reporter Julian Fowler.

:16:18.:16:20.

This is the man who abused three young girls while they were

:16:21.:16:24.

swimming, arriving at court accompanied by his sisters.

:16:25.:16:27.

The parents of his victims were also in court to see him sentenced.

:16:28.:16:31.

As one mother told me afterwards, "He came

:16:32.:16:33.

in here as Cristian Diaz, he's going out as a registered sex offender."

:16:34.:16:39.

He touched the children, who were aged nine, ten and 11,

:16:40.:16:42.

in three separate incidents two years ago at the Lakeland

:16:43.:16:44.

The judge said the swimming pool was a place "where children should

:16:45.:16:50.

have been able to feel safe and where parents allow

:16:51.:16:53.

He said the attacks had left the girls "understandably confused,

:16:54.:16:58.

distressed and upset at what had happened to them."

:16:59.:17:03.

A defence lawyer said that Diaz had described what had happened

:17:04.:17:05.

"as the greatest mistake of my life."

:17:06.:17:09.

Diaz was given a 14-month sentence, half to be served in prison,

:17:10.:17:11.

and was put on the sex offenders register for ten years.

:17:12.:17:16.

The parents of the three children watched as Diaz

:17:17.:17:18.

shrugged his shoulders before being led away in handcuffs.

:17:19.:17:24.

They thanked the police and also paid tribute

:17:25.:17:27.

to their young children, saying that they were very brave

:17:28.:17:29.

to come forward and should be very proud of themselves in helping

:17:30.:17:32.

to stop further harm to members of the public.

:17:33.:17:42.

An inquest is being held into the death of an 81-year-old

:17:43.:17:45.

woman who was critically injured in a fire at a care home.

:17:46.:17:55.

She was regularly given cigarettes and a lighter and supervised.

:17:56.:17:58.

here at the home was provided by the Saint John of God Association. The

:18:23.:18:25.

inquest was told on a number of occasions Kathleen Fegan was seen

:18:26.:18:31.

smoking in areas she wasn't meant to be including her bedroom. The

:18:32.:18:35.

inquest also heard that she burnt her underwear and trousers and left

:18:36.:18:39.

cigarette buts burning in her bedroom then. Despite this, she was

:18:40.:18:42.

regularly given more than one cigarette at a time and a lighter.

:18:43.:18:47.

Giving evidence today was brother Michael who was acting manager at

:18:48.:18:53.

Owenvale Court care home between 2010 and January 20 12. The coroner

:18:54.:18:57.

enquired as to the appropriateness of simply having a conversation

:18:58.:19:00.

about the dangers of smoking in a bedroom with a woman who had

:19:01.:19:05.

dementia. Brother told the court he believed all steps were taken to

:19:06.:19:09.

protect Kathleen Fegan. Asked if she fully understood the smoking rules,

:19:10.:19:15.

her brother replied no. -- brother Newman replied, no, she was not able

:19:16.:19:20.

to understand the rules. The inquest continues tomorrow.

The families of three children who suffer from a severe

:19:22.:19:23.

muscle wasting disease want the Belfast Trust to tell them why

:19:24.:19:26.

they're being denied access to a potentially life changing drug.

:19:27.:19:29.

Another child has already started the treatment, which at present

She's one of four children in Northern Ireland who have it.

:19:47.:20:00.

She has a really tough life. If she takes a cold, it could kill her. She

:20:01.:20:11.

did take pneumonia. She was in hospital a couple of weeks ago and

was really bad. She just trips on. After years of trials,
