like the winter weather for now is a bit of a thing of the

:00:00.:00:00.

Our top stories: Concerns about a Pembrokeshire boy who died

:00:07.:00:11.

of scurvy were raised more than a year before his death,

:00:12.:00:12.

Who is asking the questions? The answer seems to be, nobody is.

:00:13.:00:45.

A revolution in your rubbish - but we're still paying ?47 million

:00:46.:00:48.

One Council has become the latest to say enough is enough and they will

:00:49.:01:02.

no longer be sending any household waste to places like this.

:01:03.:01:05.

The copyright battle in an Irish court -

:01:06.:01:13.

It looks like something from Harry Potter -

:01:14.:01:16.

this is where Aberystwyth University began.

:01:17.:01:18.

Tonight its future is to be mapped out.

:01:19.:01:20.

They're practicing mindfulness - should we be teaching it

:01:21.:01:22.

Dylan Seabridge was eight years old when he died of scurvy in 2011

:01:23.:01:36.

and yet his inquest heard he saw no doctors, dentists or teachers

:01:37.:01:40.

from when he was just 13 months old until his death.

:01:41.:01:46.

Now a BBC Wales investigation has found that concerns were raised

:01:47.:01:49.

to the authorities more than a year before he died.

:01:50.:01:51.

And now more than four years on, nothing has been published

:01:52.:01:54.

about whether more could have been done to prevent it.

:01:55.:01:57.

India Pollock has this special report.

:01:58.:02:05.

Dylan sea bridge was invisible to local councils. According to a

:02:06.:02:14.

serious case review leaked to BBC Wales. The report's author knew so

:02:15.:02:19.

little about him that it was impossible to draw a richer, she

:02:20.:02:24.

said. The inquest heard that he did not see a doctor or dentist from the

:02:25.:02:29.

age of 13 months until he died of scurvy at the age of eight. Scurvy

:02:30.:02:34.

is caused by a lack of vitamins C. The inquest took place in January

:02:35.:02:38.

last year heard it was an easily preventable, treatable disease.

:02:39.:02:44.

Some of the clinical features described by the Amazon -- ambulance

:02:45.:02:54.

crew were very typical of scurvy, swelling in the lower limbs, a rash

:02:55.:02:59.

on the legs, and discolouration and bruising, all characteristic

:03:00.:03:03.

features of scurvy. His parents however do not believe that he died

:03:04.:03:08.

of scurvy, or that he was invisible to the outside world. They were

:03:09.:03:12.

charged with neglect but the charges were dropped in 2014. Dylan lived

:03:13.:03:19.

here in Pembrokeshire, but his mother worked as a teacher in

:03:20.:03:25.

neighbouring Ceredigion. It was during an employment tribunal by the

:03:26.:03:30.

council that professionals became aware she was suffering severe

:03:31.:03:33.

mental ill-health, they contacted home services who told them that

:03:34.:03:40.

Dylan was home educated. He died a few years later in 2011. The

:03:41.:03:45.

safeguarding children board looked at the involvement of any agencies

:03:46.:03:48.

and should have completed the report quickly so that any lessons can be

:03:49.:03:53.

learnt and shared. The draft review we have seen has never been

:03:54.:03:57.

published. Four years after the death nothing else has been

:03:58.:04:02.

published. Mark Dyson is a former solicitor for the Council and was

:04:03.:04:05.

one of those contacted social services. He also told senior

:04:06.:04:10.

officials that he was anxious the investigation there carrying out

:04:11.:04:18.

after the death -- anxious about the investigation they were carrying

:04:19.:04:22.

out. He also says the delay in publication is worrying.

:04:23.:04:27.

The whole purpose of serious case reviews is to learn lessons. They

:04:28.:04:31.

need to be approached with a sense of urgency. If lessons are not

:04:32.:04:36.

learned with a sense of urgency, these things will have again. It has

:04:37.:04:43.

been wholly inadequate. They're just does not seem to have been any fully

:04:44.:04:48.

coordinated response, no sense of urgency, now focus on the child and

:04:49.:04:57.

the fact that the child is dead. -- no focus.

:04:58.:05:02.

The council denies those claims and says they are not responsible for

:05:03.:05:06.

safeguarding Dylan, who lived in temperature. They had to wait until

:05:07.:05:11.

the criminal investigation was completed, and then the inquest

:05:12.:05:15.

which took place in January last year. They also said the process was

:05:16.:05:20.

very complex because of a change in government guidance and the

:05:21.:05:23.

structure of the safeguarding board. They say a new review will be

:05:24.:05:30.

published soon. Dylan was home educated, as are around 1500

:05:31.:05:33.

children in Wales, though we don't have exact numbers because there is

:05:34.:05:37.

no legal obligation to register the fact you teach a child at home. The

:05:38.:05:41.

Childrens Commissioner for Wales says that needs to change.

:05:42.:05:45.

This is rare but probably not the only child under the radar in

:05:46.:05:50.

Britain. So we should be learning what we can, very clearly, from this

:05:51.:05:55.

case, and, of course, as quickly as possible.

:05:56.:05:58.

The Welsh Government did not want to be interviewed but we asked them a

:05:59.:06:01.

number of questions. They said they would not comment on an individual

:06:02.:06:05.

case but that you'd non-statutory guidance on home education would be

:06:06.:06:10.

published soon. Mark Dyson has now retired, giving up his career after

:06:11.:06:14.

20 years in public service, he says that the fight for a rule and robust

:06:15.:06:18.

investigation had a profound impact on him. -- full.

:06:19.:06:28.

You feel that even the threat of reason is broken, or there's

:06:29.:06:31.

something so profoundly wrong that you cannot put it right. -- the

:06:32.:06:42.

thread of reason has broken. It exhausts you. It goes on and on and

:06:43.:06:47.

on. You are just trying to find somebody who can listen fairly to

:06:48.:06:51.

what you are saying. Not necessarily agree with you, just listen fairly

:06:52.:06:55.

to what you are saying. And all that I'm saying is, a child is dead,

:06:56.:06:59.

where are we in terms of learning the lessons? Who is asking questions

:07:00.:07:08.

as to Mark shining -- asking questions? The answer seems to be,

:07:09.:07:17.

nobody is. For years on we still don't know

:07:18.:07:21.

what has happened. That is right. They had to wait for

:07:22.:07:25.

the criminal charges to end, charges of neglect were dropped against the

:07:26.:07:30.

parents in 2014. The inquest was just about a year ago. The other

:07:31.:07:35.

things that had been in play are changes to safeguarding board in

:07:36.:07:38.

Wales and a change in guidance from the Welsh Government around this

:07:39.:07:42.

kind of investigation. However, as you can imagine, there is still

:07:43.:07:46.

criticism of how long this is taken. A new review should be out soon.

:07:47.:07:53.

And that this has prompted calls for a register of home educated

:07:54.:07:56.

children. That is right, the Childrens

:07:57.:07:59.

Commissioner once a register of when children are being -- wants a

:08:00.:08:09.

commission of when children are being registered at home. It is not

:08:10.:08:12.

just about home education but loving relationships with doctors,

:08:13.:08:20.

dentists, other relationships -- but building relationships. I spoke to

:08:21.:08:23.

an education consultant who said the moment you try to police this

:08:24.:08:27.

barriers will go up and it will be harder to cooperate with families

:08:28.:08:31.

who want to home educate their children. She also said the cases

:08:32.:08:35.

naked inevitable to talk about this register again but at the end of the

:08:36.:08:38.

day, had cases should not make that laws. -- hard cases should not make

:08:39.:08:52.

bad laws. The amount spent by councils

:08:53.:08:56.

in Wales on landfill has fallen by nearly a quarter

:08:57.:08:58.

in the last four years- according to figures

:08:59.:09:00.

obtained by BBC Wales. The annual cost has dropped

:09:01.:09:02.

from more than $62 million to more But that's still a bill

:09:03.:09:05.

of ?130,000 every day, and the ongoing cost of landfill has

:09:06.:09:08.

driven one local authority, Rhondda Cynon Taff, to become

:09:09.:09:11.

the latest to commit to stop All of the stuff we did not want,

:09:12.:09:18.

did not recycle, and threw away. Crushed up. 3500 tonnes of it

:09:19.:09:23.

processed every week. Enough room for another 20 years worth. It has

:09:24.:09:30.

become so expensive to get rid of what we don't want in big holes in

:09:31.:09:38.

the ground like this, between the UK Government landfill tax and Welsh

:09:39.:09:42.

Government fines for not meeting recycling targets, so the council

:09:43.:09:46.

has become the latest authority in Wales to say, enough is enough, no

:09:47.:09:51.

more landfill for household waste, no more of what we don't want ending

:09:52.:09:54.

up in places like this. From April, lack an waste from the

:09:55.:10:00.

area will be burned to generate electricity instead. The ash remade

:10:01.:10:04.

into something else. It cost us in tax alone, to bury

:10:05.:10:13.

this rubbish, so it makes sense, there is lots of reasons why now is

:10:14.:10:17.

a time to change. Most authorities have cut landfill

:10:18.:10:22.

costs in recent years, the biggest fall slashing a bill by 89%. Other

:10:23.:10:26.

councils have seen costs remain flat. Anglesey, pretty much zero.

:10:27.:10:34.

The biggest increase spending, 26% more than four years ago. The

:10:35.:10:39.

council says it is down to the increase in landfill tax, not

:10:40.:10:42.

because it is putting more in the ground. They say that improving

:10:43.:10:49.

recycling rates has helped reduce costs.

:10:50.:10:53.

This is not recyclable. This is crisp bags or bread wrappers.

:10:54.:11:01.

Material like this go through heat treatment here, but it does not come

:11:02.:11:05.

cheap. So budgets are still as tight as ever.

:11:06.:11:09.

We don't make money on recycling. That is a misconception. The money

:11:10.:11:13.

we earn goes into running the service.

:11:14.:11:20.

?130,000 a day is still spent in Wales online full charges.

:11:21.:11:29.

We have estimated that our current disposal costs could save the

:11:30.:11:33.

council about ?500,000 per year if that last little bit of recycling

:11:34.:11:36.

could be put in the right containers.

:11:37.:11:41.

But of course, changes to recycling do not always go down well. Protests

:11:42.:11:47.

in Cardiff over new wheelie bins some felt were unnecessary. Anger

:11:48.:11:55.

over new recycling boxes, some find them difficult to use and

:11:56.:11:59.

impractical. Welsh Government want a zero waste Wales in 2050. The

:12:00.:12:06.

methods used to get there in parts of the country are still leaving

:12:07.:12:07.

some deeply sceptical. Two men from Wiltshire

:12:08.:12:09.

have appeared in court, to face charges of death

:12:10.:12:11.

by dangerous driving, after the tipper truck

:12:12.:12:13.

they were in killed four people, including three men

:12:14.:12:15.

warned that Wales would "lose out", if more welfare

transferring responsibility for Attendance Allowance,

which is paid to over-65s with a physical

of Lords committee earlier, he opposed this, and that

:13:11.:13:13.

the benefits system should "remain Your income tax has been back

:13:14.:13:15.

on the political agenda. The Conservative assembly member,

:13:16.:13:22.

Nick Ramsay, has called on his party to look again at its policy

:13:23.:13:25.

to devolve some income tax powers His comments follow a meeting

:13:26.:13:30.

yesterday, in which a number of Welsh Tory MPs raised concerns

:13:31.:13:35.

on the matter with the Chancellor, Mr Ramsay, who's the Welsh Tories'

:13:36.:13:39.

shadow finance minister, said it was a "big move"

:13:40.:13:43.

to drop the referendum. This is a completely new area, new

:13:44.:13:58.

territory for the assembly to be going into. It is understandable

:13:59.:14:03.

that some people are concerned. One thing is clear, tax devolution will

:14:04.:14:07.

happen, but in such a constitutional issue do we really want to press a

:14:08.:14:13.

head without a referendum? I fully understand the concerns of MPs and

:14:14.:14:15.

think we need to look again at this and I am pleased we have the debate

:14:16.:14:20.

going on. Our political editor joins me, how

:14:21.:14:25.

serious is this for the party? It is a big policy for the

:14:26.:14:29.

Conservatives ever since George Osborne set it out in the spending

:14:30.:14:33.

review last year, they think it is a fundamental way of introducing

:14:34.:14:35.

financial accountability to this place. The Welsh Conservatives want

:14:36.:14:40.

to reduce income tax quite significant if they are in power.

:14:41.:14:44.

Yet there are clear divisions within the party. We know the Welsh Tory

:14:45.:14:50.

MPs are split down the middle. Some of the concern at Westminster is

:14:51.:14:54.

reflected here at the assembly. The Welsh Conservatives are saying that

:14:55.:14:59.

the group is united, the policy is not going to change. The problem is

:15:00.:15:05.

that Nick Ramsay speaks on finance matters for them, obviously he does

:15:06.:15:08.

not see I too high with the party leadership on what to do with the

:15:09.:15:14.

biggest tax of a lot, income tax. And a row in Ukip tonight over the

:15:15.:15:17.

candidate selection for the assembly.

:15:18.:15:23.

Yes, a long-awaited decision from Ukip about who will be nominated as

:15:24.:15:29.

their candidates on the regional list for the assembly election, the

:15:30.:15:32.

point being that these people have a very good chance of becoming you

:15:33.:15:37.

could's first elected members at the assembly. -- Ukip's first. The

:15:38.:15:43.

party's national executive Midi meets tomorrow. In the meantime

:15:44.:15:49.

Kevin Amani, a prominent member of the party, has said that if Neil

:15:50.:15:56.

Hamilton and Mark wrecked less are selected, he will resign. He is

:15:57.:15:59.

reflecting a wider concern in the party that politicians with no

:16:00.:16:04.

connections on Wales will be imposed on Ukip for the assembly election.

:16:05.:16:11.

-- Mark Reckless. This row has been brewing for a few months and appears

:16:12.:16:12.

to be reaching a head. They're practising mindfulness,

:16:13.:16:15.

should we be teaching it in every If you're Dylan Thomas -

:16:16.:16:20.

that's a complicated question. A court in Ireland has dismissed

:16:21.:16:29.

a copyright claim brought against the Welsh government,

:16:30.:16:32.

over its use of these two photographs of the poet

:16:33.:16:34.

and his wife Caitlin. The case was brought

:16:35.:16:38.

by a company called Pablo Star, which has accused

:16:39.:16:41.

the Welsh Government of using the images

:16:42.:16:43.

without permission. Live to Dublin and our Arts

:16:44.:16:46.

and Media Correspondent Huw Thomas. Two fairly innocent looking photos

:16:47.:16:58.

of Dylan taken many years ago, but which have been the subject

:16:59.:17:04.

of intense legal arguments The photos show Dylan Thomas

:17:05.:17:06.

at the happiest time of his life, just married to Caitlin Macnamara

:17:07.:17:10.

and playing croquet The pictures were bought five years

:17:11.:17:12.

ago by a company called Pablo Star In Dublin today the managing

:17:13.:17:17.

director of Pablo Star Media, Haydn Price, came to court to pursue

:17:18.:17:23.

claims for damages from six parties he claimed had used the images

:17:24.:17:26.

without permission - one of which was

:17:27.:17:28.

the Welsh Government. In court the government's solicitor

:17:29.:17:30.

argued that the images had been used in tourism information campaigns

:17:31.:17:35.

as part of government activity, and any copyright breach would be

:17:36.:17:43.

covered by sovereign immunity Pablo Star's solicitor put

:17:44.:17:47.

to the judge that the Government's use of the image had been

:17:48.:17:51.

commercial, and that it should be treated as a straightforward breach

:17:52.:17:56.

of copyright that could be heard In the end the judge disagreed,

:17:57.:18:00.

saying a court in Wales or England would be better suited

:18:01.:18:05.

to hear the case. He also dismissed four other claims

:18:06.:18:10.

made by Pablo Star for breach of copyright against publishers

:18:11.:18:14.

from America and New Zealand, a sixth claim against a Welsh man

:18:15.:18:22.

called Richard Bowen was adjourned - that matter will be heard

:18:23.:18:25.

again in a month's time. Plans for a ?19.5 million pound

:18:26.:18:30.

renovation of one of Aberystwyth's most iconic buildings

:18:31.:18:32.

are being discussed at a public Aberystwyth University hopes

:18:33.:18:34.

to transform the Old College into a centre for heritage,

:18:35.:18:39.

learning and enterprise. It's looking to secure

:18:40.:18:42.

half the money it needs It is an imposing structure with its

:18:43.:19:04.

towers, smiles, and gargoyles -- spires. It is part not just of the

:19:05.:19:11.

history of Aberystwyth but of Wales. So the university believe it is

:19:12.:19:14.

important it remains part of the future.

:19:15.:19:17.

Ambitious plans to restore and revitalise the college is a vibrant

:19:18.:19:21.

centre for heritage, culture, learning, and enterprise.

:19:22.:19:26.

It was originally an market hotel which opened for business in June

:19:27.:19:32.

1865 to attract wealthy Victorian holiday-makers, but unfinished, it

:19:33.:19:36.

closed one year later. It was then bought for a fraction of the price

:19:37.:19:41.

by the Welsh university committee. The first students arrived in

:19:42.:19:45.

October 18 72. The old College is the birthplace of university

:19:46.:19:49.

scholarship in the Wales and its style has been compared to a French

:19:50.:19:54.

Renaissance chateau. Even though imposing, the university wanted to

:19:55.:19:57.

be a central hub for the community with redevelopment including a

:19:58.:20:01.

museum, art gallery, cafe, and shop. But it has a hefty price tag of

:20:02.:20:06.

?19.5 million. We think it will be extremely

:20:07.:20:10.

attractive to people, not just in the area, but attracting people from

:20:11.:20:14.

Bjorn. But the university already has an

:20:15.:20:21.

arts centre and museum in the town which has recently benefited from a

:20:22.:20:25.

?1 million grant. Is there really demand for another cultural quarter?

:20:26.:20:30.

It is a fantastic piece of architecture, to say the least, and

:20:31.:20:35.

it has been there for some time now. To only have it used as a university

:20:36.:20:39.

building does deprive the public. It needs something to bring people

:20:40.:20:44.

in to Aberystwyth. Half the money would need to come

:20:45.:20:48.

from a heritage lottery grant but the vision is for a multi-million

:20:49.:20:52.

pound face-lift to be complete by 2022, B with hundred and 50th

:21:45.:21:48.

he was one of the finest tennis commentators of our time.

:21:49.:21:51.

Its been described by some as a way to stop thinking so why do some

:21:52.:21:55.

people want it brought into our schools?

:21:56.:21:58.

Well, mindfulness is an idea that's gaining ground in Wales

:21:59.:22:01.

with supporters believing it could help children cope with stress

:22:02.:22:04.

and tackle long term mental health issues.

:22:05.:22:06.

Here at this school they are conducting a unique experiment.

:22:07.:22:24.

But there are sensors, we have to squeeze...

:22:25.:22:30.

Scientists are testing the children for the effects of something known

:22:31.:22:34.

as mindfulness. It can be described as a form of

:22:35.:22:39.

mind training. Mental training, that enables us to notice what is

:22:40.:22:43.

happening in our minds and our body. It also teaches us to relate our

:22:44.:22:48.

experience in a more gentle, non-way.

:22:49.:22:52.

Already popular in the world of sport and music there is now growing

:22:53.:22:56.

support for the idea it should be on the school curriculum.

:22:57.:23:02.

The best way to help children flourish, to bring them different

:23:03.:23:06.

techniques they can use to cope not only with stress, anxiety, and

:23:07.:23:10.

depression, but also to perform well, to train their attention, to

:23:11.:23:15.

be able to concentrate better, to be able to regulate their emotions, to

:23:16.:23:19.

have some control over their happiness, their health, and that

:23:20.:23:22.

their well-being. They have been practising it here

:23:23.:23:26.

for two years. Backwards and forwards, just

:23:27.:23:30.

feeling... To with the scientists that they

:23:31.:23:34.

have developed a teaching programme aimed specifically at children.

:23:35.:23:38.

It has made a huge difference, in fact, on occasions when we have it

:23:39.:23:44.

after playtime or physical education, we are able to practice

:23:45.:23:48.

this, and it calms the whole situation down.

:23:49.:23:51.

There is little evidence currently that it makes any long-term

:23:52.:23:56.

difference to children's thinking. That is what scientists here are

:23:57.:24:00.

hoping to find. We are hoping to see this training

:24:01.:24:03.

will help children focus better. Whether they can stay on the task

:24:04.:24:10.

they are asked to do, whether they can let go of the information that

:24:11.:24:14.

is relevant to a task. But in Westminster that some MPs

:24:15.:24:20.

practice it themselves. The chair of the parliamentary group which wrote

:24:21.:24:24.

this report, she supports the idea of rolling it out widely.

:24:25.:24:30.

It is just logical. If there are small, simple techniques you can

:24:31.:24:35.

teach people to help them calm down, during different periods of their

:24:36.:24:39.

life, then, what is the harm in that?

:24:40.:24:43.

It is not without its critics. Some parents believe the time could be

:24:44.:24:47.

better spent learning. But the idea is spreading. This school near

:24:48.:24:51.

Newport regularly practices it and is now encouraging heads across the

:24:52.:24:57.

county to train their staff. Meanwhile the research from the

:24:58.:24:59.

University is expected to be published shortly.

:25:00.:25:02.

We've seen the last of the frost for a while.

:25:03.:25:06.

The next few days much milder and changeable.

:25:07.:25:08.

Wet and windy at times but some dry spells and sunshine as well.

:25:09.:25:13.

10 Celsius in Milford Haven and tomorrow will be milder everywhere.

:25:14.:25:19.

Now in north Wales a few people were lucky and saw a glimpse

:25:20.:25:25.

This photo taken by Aaron Crowe from the Denbigh Moors.

:25:26.:25:30.

No chance of seeing them tonight or the five planets.

:25:31.:25:33.

Mercury, Venus, Mars, Saturn and Jupiter are all visible

:25:34.:25:37.

before dawn for the first time in more than a decade.

:25:38.:25:40.

The spectacle is visible until mid February.

:25:41.:25:45.

This evening, cloudy and damp in places.

:25:46.:25:47.

Overnight some heavier rain and stronger winds will

:25:48.:25:50.

Lowest temperature around 4 or 5 Celsius and rising.

:25:51.:25:54.

Here's the picture for 8 in the morning.

:25:55.:25:56.

Some heavy rain for the morning rush hour.

:25:57.:26:00.

Poor driving conditions and gusty winds.

:26:01.:26:03.

But by this time, the worst of the rain should have cleared

:26:04.:26:10.

from Pembrokeshire and elsewhere the rain will clear

:26:11.:26:12.

Dry with sunny spells and feeling milder too.

:26:13.:26:20.

Temperatures in double figures with a south-westerly breeze.

:26:21.:26:25.

Tomorrow evening one or showers about otherwise a dry night.

:26:26.:26:33.

Tomorrow evening one or two showers about,

:26:34.:26:38.

Temperatures in Welshpool falling as low as 5 Celsius.

:26:39.:26:45.

Some bright spells and sunshine but it won't stay dry all day

:26:46.:26:51.

with more rain and stronger winds during the evening and night.

:26:52.:26:53.

A little rain and drizzle but some dry spells as well.

:26:54.:26:58.

Temperatures well above average with south to south-westerly winds.

:26:59.:27:02.

So we've seen the last of the frost for a while.

:27:03.:27:04.

No sign yet of another cold spell or snow this month or early

:27:05.:27:12.

The headlines: a BBC Wales investigation has discovered

:27:13.:27:28.

concerns about an eight-year-old boy who died in scurvy were raised more

:27:29.:27:30.

than a year before his death. I'll have an update for you here

:27:31.:27:33.

at 8pm and after the BBC News at 10. That's Wales Today,

:27:34.:27:37.

thank you for watching, from all of us on the

:27:38.:27:39.

programme, good evening. 500 Words is back - the Radio 2

:27:40.:27:47.

writing competition for kids with our new judge,

:27:48.:27:49.

the Duchess of Cornwall! And the final will be held

:27:50.:27:52.

at Shakespeare's Globe. So, what story are you

:27:53.:27:54.

going to write?
