Wales risks missing out on being a world leader in Tidal power.

:00:00.:00:10.

The warning tonight from the company behind the billion pound

:00:11.:00:12.

We need to develop the supply chain, deliver the jobs, deliver the value

:00:13.:00:26.

across the supply chain throughout Wales and the UK. If we move out

:00:27.:00:30.

other countries will follow. Not lead. Questions over the

:00:31.:00:37.

multi-million pound race track planned in Ebbw Vale.

:00:38.:00:38.

15-year-old Megan is recovering from a liver transplant

:00:39.:00:42.

Her family want England to follow Wales on organ donation to presume

:00:43.:00:46.

One person can donate several organs. Presumed consent can help so

:00:47.:00:58.

much more than just opting in. Not enough people

:00:59.:00:58.

Presumed consent can help so much more than just opting in.

:00:59.:01:01.

We'll hear from some of the 28 couples who face losing

:01:02.:01:06.

thousands of pounds, after their wedding venue

:01:07.:01:07.

Find out why pedometers are being fitted to a herd of cows in Gwynedd.

Coach Rob Howley says he hopes big games won't be decided by red cards

:01:15.:01:21.

Wales risks missing out on the chance to lead

:01:22.:01:41.

the world in the development of new tidal power stations.

:01:42.:01:44.

That's the warning from the company behind

:01:45.:01:46.

Tidal Lagoon Power is waiting for the green light from the UK

:01:47.:01:55.

government, on the ?1.3 billion project, but say other countries

:01:56.:01:58.

It comes as the former energy minister, Charles Hendry,

:01:59.:02:04.

who led an independent review into the lagoon urged the government

:02:05.:02:07.

to give their backing "sooner rather than later".

:02:08.:02:09.

With the details, here's our Environment correspondent,

:02:10.:02:10.

It is the Swansea Bay tidal lagoon ever going to be more than a

:02:11.:02:25.

computer-generated artist 's impression? The company behind plan

:02:26.:02:29.

say they are ready to go. That building work has been held up due

:02:30.:02:32.

to negotiations with the UK Government over the price they will

:02:33.:02:36.

guarantee to pay for the electricity from the scheme to be fed into the

:02:37.:02:40.

National Grid. In the meantime other countries like India, they claim,

:02:41.:02:44.

are lying at the technology. We need to be a first mover. We need

:02:45.:02:53.

to develop the supply chain. If we are a first mover other countries

:02:54.:02:57.

will follow, not greed. It's been two weeks since its former

:02:58.:03:01.

energy minister gave that visually big vote of confidence. Today

:03:02.:03:07.

Charles Hendry was in Wales to meet politicians and business leaders who

:03:08.:03:10.

gave evidence to the review about the viability of tidal lagoons. He

:03:11.:03:15.

concluded they provide affordable green energy, and building one as a

:03:16.:03:19.

test would be in the national interests.

:03:20.:03:21.

We have to make decisions now for how we generate the power we know we

:03:22.:03:27.

will need in 2020. We have 100 billion to invest in new energy and

:03:28.:03:30.

infrastructure. If we don't do that we are going to have a real crisis.

:03:31.:03:35.

We want the supply chain to invest in new jobs and we need to give them

:03:36.:03:38.

signals to go forward. Charles Hendry said that what he

:03:39.:03:41.

found striking was the level of enthusiasm shown by locals for what

:03:42.:03:48.

is, in essence, a new power station on their doorstep. He'd never seen

:03:49.:03:52.

anything like it, he said. He urged people to write to the Government

:03:53.:03:56.

and Theresa May to make their views known.

:03:57.:03:59.

This Welsh Tory MP also called on his own government to get a move on.

:04:00.:04:04.

I can assure you that my colleagues in government of the expectation.

:04:05.:04:08.

They've heard enough of it from me. I know my other colleagues,

:04:09.:04:12.

cross-party, are doing the same thing. We will continue to that and

:04:13.:04:22.

an announcement is made. The price tag is ?1.3 billion, the

:04:23.:04:25.

company promises to spend half of that in Wales. They will also be

:04:26.:04:31.

construction and manufacturing jobs. This Saville engineering firm hopes

:04:32.:04:34.

they'll get a share of the work developing a turbine Assembly plant.

:04:35.:04:39.

They've spent ?100,000 on the tendering project.

:04:40.:04:43.

We've been frustrated waiting for a decision to be made, but we are

:04:44.:04:48.

excited as well. This is a brilliant project for the region. We've got

:04:49.:04:52.

skills that are drizzly transferable, to the tidal lagoon

:04:53.:04:57.

project, and skills that, were in Tata as well.

:04:58.:05:00.

Ministers say they are considering the findings of the review carefully

:05:01.:05:03.

and will make a decision on whether to give the scheme backing in due

:05:04.:05:08.

course. There are outstanding environmental concerns though, the

:05:09.:05:11.

developers are yet to be granted a Marine license from natural

:05:12.:05:15.

resources Wales. But the pressure is certainly mounting on all involved

:05:16.:05:21.

to make clear where they stand. As the tidal lagoon which is to be

:05:22.:05:25.

given the go-ahead there are serious questions tonight over the future of

:05:26.:05:29.

the multi-million pound race track planned near Ebbw Vale. Those behind

:05:30.:05:34.

the circuit of Wales have been given a two-week deadline by the Welsh

:05:35.:05:37.

government to show they have enough financial backing for the scheme to

:05:38.:05:42.

go ahead. Our business correspondent is with us.

:05:43.:05:46.

How significant is this? It is a very significant move, ultimately,

:05:47.:05:50.

it is the latest in signs of growing frustration from the Welsh

:05:51.:05:53.

government about how this company has been approaching this project.

:05:54.:05:57.

Initially the company came to the Welsh government and said it wanted

:05:58.:06:04.

100% of the project. Now over ?400 million, and written by taxpayers.

:06:05.:06:08.

The Government said Galway, look at that again and look at and writing

:06:09.:06:13.

half of it. They still haven't heard anything concrete from the company

:06:14.:06:17.

about who they are and whether they have the money. We've tried to speak

:06:18.:06:23.

to the company to make but haven't heard anything from them. They have

:06:24.:06:27.

been trying to get that extra funding.

:06:28.:06:31.

They brought in people to find the extra investment, but it's now very

:06:32.:06:34.

firmly back in their court. It has to be said there are many

:06:35.:06:38.

people in the business community including investors who said they

:06:39.:06:41.

are not sure about the strength of the business case for this project.

:06:42.:06:44.

A mother from Cheltenham has told this programme she's launched

:06:45.:06:48.

a campaign calling for England to follow Wales' lead on organ

:06:49.:06:50.

donation, after her teenage daughter needed a liver transplant.

:06:51.:06:53.

It's been just over a year since the law was changed here,

:06:54.:06:56.

to introduce a "deemed consent" system, where people who have

:06:57.:06:59.

neither opted in, or out, are considered to be willing donors

:07:00.:07:01.

Organs from Wales have been used to save lives right across the UK,

:07:02.:07:08.

but if England followed suit, supporters say, many

:07:09.:07:10.

For 15-year-old Megan Carson from Cheltenham just a simple pleasure of

:07:11.:07:25.

going for a walk with her mum and her dog is something she's been too

:07:26.:07:29.

weak to do for months. She is recovering from transplant

:07:30.:07:33.

surgery. She became ill on a school trip last summer and medical

:07:34.:07:37.

investigations revealed she had autoimmune hepatitis and needed a

:07:38.:07:41.

donor liver. He match was found within a couple of months, but it

:07:42.:07:45.

was an anxious time for Megan and her mum, Carey who is from North

:07:46.:07:50.

Wales. The experience made them realise the shortage of organs could

:07:51.:07:54.

be helped if England adopted the same system of presumed consent

:07:55.:07:58.

already introduced in Wales. The more organs that are available

:07:59.:08:03.

the more lives are saved. My daughter, Megan, had to wait just

:08:04.:08:06.

less than two months and we were lucky to be able to get a donor that

:08:07.:08:09.

quickly. I think presumed consent, there

:08:10.:08:17.

aren't enough people donating in England. One person can donate

:08:18.:08:22.

several organs. Presumed consent can help so much more than just opting

:08:23.:08:24.

in. Not enough people opt in. The

:08:25.:08:30.

problem is particularly acute for children's organs. Those aged under

:08:31.:08:34.

20 make up just 4% of those on the donor register. Megan's mam, Carey,

:08:35.:08:39.

is so convinced that England should adopt the system she's started a

:08:40.:08:44.

campaign. It would enable people to make their

:08:45.:08:49.

wishes known. I still believe they should have the choice, they can opt

:08:50.:08:53.

out of a need to. It would ease the decisions that the upset relatives

:08:54.:08:59.

need to make a bad time. One Welsh MP is already calling for

:09:00.:09:02.

that change, Paul Flynn introducing Members Bill, that would see

:09:03.:09:08.

presumed consent adopted UK wide. Every day that goes by, those in the

:09:09.:09:14.

west of the United Kingdom had to suffer the anxiety of waiting for an

:09:15.:09:19.

organ and the possibility that it will be delayed. In many cases,

:09:20.:09:22.

tragically, they died before they get the organ. We should get the

:09:23.:09:28.

advantages enjoyed by Wales to be enjoyed by the rest of the UK as

:09:29.:09:32.

soon as possible. The Department of Health in England

:09:33.:09:35.

said they had no plans to introduce an opt out system, but were waiting

:09:36.:09:39.

to see how changes in legislation Wales impact on donations. They

:09:40.:09:43.

added that they continue to work closely with the Welsh government to

:09:44.:09:47.

identify ways to build on the significant increase of organ

:09:48.:09:49.

donations already achieved since 2008.

:09:50.:09:55.

Megan was one of the lucky ones. She got the liver transplant that saved

:09:56.:09:58.

her life. She believes if England follow

:09:59.:10:01.

Wales's lead many more lives could be saved.

:10:02.:10:01.

Our Health Correspondent Owain Clarke joins me.

:10:02.:10:04.

Owain, the Health Secretary in England says he's

:10:05.:10:06.

keeping an eye on Wales, what has the impact been

:10:07.:10:08.

The Welsh government has said that the change might lead to a 25%

:10:09.:10:17.

increase in donors. These are the latest statistics we have, and they

:10:18.:10:22.

show in the nine months between April and December last year they

:10:23.:10:27.

were 39 deceased donors in Wales, in the 12 month period before which

:10:28.:10:33.

straddled the change, they were 64. 60 deceased donors in the financial

:10:34.:10:38.

year before that, what does that tell us? This certainly hasn't been

:10:39.:10:43.

a dramatic increase. We might find out that the figures have dropped a

:10:44.:10:54.

little bit after the change. Is that a failure? Not necessarily. The

:10:55.:10:56.

figures vary from year to year due to be smaller numbers involved.

:10:57.:10:59.

Maybe fewer people died in the right circumstances. Doctors and nurses

:11:00.:11:02.

say that families in Wales are now far more aware of their loved one's

:11:03.:11:09.

wishes, which means approaching the subject of organ donation is far

:11:10.:11:14.

easier. Could a PR campaign have achieved that, who knows? France is

:11:15.:11:18.

the latest company to go for an opt out system and many believes it

:11:19.:11:20.

out system and many believes it saves lives.

:11:21.:11:22.

The tainted blood scandal, which led to the deaths

:11:23.:11:25.

of 70 people in Wales, should be made the subject

:11:26.:11:27.

of a public inquiry according to a group of Assembly Members.

:11:28.:11:30.

Thousands of people developed Hepatitis C and HIV,

:11:31.:11:32.

after being given infected blood in the late 1970s and 80s.

:11:33.:11:34.

Campaigners met politicians discussing the matter,

:11:35.:11:36.

We are looking to have a public enquiry in the hope that we can get

:11:37.:11:51.

parity with Scotland, a better offer than is being suggested, and that

:11:52.:11:55.

the widows and the dependents get far better support in the future

:11:56.:11:59.

than they have from the trust in the last, oh, ten or 12 years or more.

:12:00.:12:05.

It's a real battle for some of these people to survive.

:12:06.:12:08.

Emergency response times to the most critical calls fell in December

:12:09.:12:11.

75.8 % of responses to red calls, arrived within eight minutes.

:12:12.:12:15.

That's down from November but above the 65% target.

:12:16.:12:19.

The Welsh Ambulance Service also received the highest average

:12:20.:12:22.

daily number of calls on record, at 1,344.

:12:23.:12:26.

Police searching for a missing man in Swansea have found a body.

:12:27.:12:29.

18-year-old Marcin Porczyk was last seen in the Wind Street area

:12:30.:12:32.

of the city in the early hours of Sunday.

:12:33.:12:36.

The body has not been identified, but his family has been informed.

:12:37.:12:53.

28 engaged couples who'd paid to get married at a popular Swansea hotel,

:12:54.:12:56.

have been told the company has gone into liquidation, leaving them

:12:57.:12:59.

The Gower Hotel in Bishopston closed unexpectedly on New Year's Eve.

:13:00.:13:03.

The owners say it's because of ill health.

:13:04.:13:05.

But for some of the couples, there will still be wedding bells,

:13:06.:13:08.

It's the day many couples dream of. Walking down the aisle to marry the

:13:09.:13:18.

perfect partner in the perfect location. After months of

:13:19.:13:22.

preparation ritual and Jonathan from Swansea were planning to tie the

:13:23.:13:26.

knot next month. What plans were in place to get married here at the

:13:27.:13:31.

Gower Hotel in Bishopston. But six weeks before the big day, having

:13:32.:13:36.

already paid ?1500 from the venue, they were told it was closing down.

:13:37.:13:41.

It's pretty horrible news. We were intending that evening to pay final

:13:42.:13:53.

balance. I was disappointed.

:13:54.:13:55.

It was my father who had put the money down, and was paying for the

:13:56.:13:58.

wedding. They feared they would have to cancel but managed to secure a

:13:59.:14:01.

new venue. They will say I do on their planned date next month. 28

:14:02.:14:04.

couples were left with their wedding plans in tatters. Today at a meeting

:14:05.:14:08.

in Cardiff couples were told they are unlikely to get their money

:14:09.:14:13.

back. Claire and Simon from Swansea have been together for eight years,

:14:14.:14:18.

and have four young boys together. He proposed last year while they

:14:19.:14:22.

were abseiling. He popped the question why we were

:14:23.:14:26.

hanging from the ropes. The boys were excited. They were telling

:14:27.:14:30.

everyone we'd got married. They thought that was the marriage.

:14:31.:14:34.

They have managed to book another venue next year. But they paid a

:14:35.:14:39.

deposit of ?500 to the Gower hotel, part of their wedding budget they

:14:40.:14:44.

likely won't see again. Obviously we are upset over it,

:14:45.:14:48.

because even though we know we are lucky, we didn't part with as much

:14:49.:14:54.

as some, obviously, money we can ill afford to just lost. It's put a

:14:55.:15:01.

little bit of a commie you know, a tarnish. It's made me, or less, more

:15:02.:15:08.

paranoid to put interest about suppliers and venues.

:15:09.:15:14.

The hotel is in liquidation with close to ?1 million in debt. They

:15:15.:15:19.

say that after losing staff and suffering ill-health, the owners

:15:20.:15:22.

were no longer able to run the venue. They are deeply sorry to the

:15:23.:15:26.

couples who have lost out. The advice for engaged couples is to

:15:27.:15:30.

take out wedding insurance, and pay on a credit card where possible to

:15:31.:15:34.

make sure they, too, get their happily ever after.

:15:35.:15:37.

It was one of last year's most popular presence, a wristwatch to

:15:38.:15:47.

tell you how far you walk. Now they have pedometers foci was.

:15:48.:15:51.

Now they have pedometers foci was.

:15:52.:15:53.

although the new captain, Alun Wyn Jones, said he'd rather be

:15:54.:15:57.

BBC Wales understands the chief executive of the patients' watchdog

:15:58.:16:01.

has been suspended on full pay since February last year.

:16:02.:16:04.

The Board of Community Health Councils is refusing to say why

:16:05.:16:06.

The organisation is funded by the Welsh government and has

:16:07.:16:10.

a budget of around ?4 million to represent NHS

:16:11.:16:12.

Our political reporter Paul Martin is in Cardiff Bay.

:16:13.:16:18.

He was appointed chief executive of the board back in July 20 15. He

:16:19.:16:36.

told BBC Wales at the time he'd been put in place to make things happen.

:16:37.:16:41.

If you translate the Government appointed a new chairman of the

:16:42.:16:50.

organisation, Mr Merrill, after that Tony was suspended. No one is saying

:16:51.:16:55.

why but said the resources they bear was tension between the two

:16:56.:16:59.

individuals. Before he was suspended concerns had been raised that he had

:17:00.:17:05.

been stopped doing media interviews and said she may have been

:17:06.:17:08.

influenced in doing this by a meeting with a government minister.

:17:09.:17:12.

The Welsh government isn't commenting on mad but Mr Merrill

:17:13.:17:16.

says she doesn't accept the allegations in the males are

:17:17.:17:19.

factually correct and says she can't comment further while the internal

:17:20.:17:24.

processes going on. Which on ski says he's been instructed not to

:17:25.:17:30.

comment. The publicly funded patient watchdog is without a permanent

:17:31.:17:34.

chief executive and big questions remain over when the situation will

:17:35.:17:35.

be resolved. Banking. Around 9,000 women a year in Wales

:17:36.:17:38.

are diagnosed with cancer. Now, a wrist-worn tracker to measure

:17:39.:17:43.

activity was one of last year's most popular presents,

:17:44.:17:45.

but how about a pedometer for cows?! Well they've been attached to stock

:17:46.:17:48.

at a Welsh farming college, to see if fitter cows

:17:49.:17:51.

produce fitter calves. Quite possibly the latest innovation

:17:52.:17:52.

in Welsh agriculture, The latest must have for the

:17:53.:18:04.

high-fashion heifer, the cows may not know it but this is

:18:05.:18:06.

high-tech stuff which could help make Welsh agriculture more

:18:07.:18:14.

competitive. At this college they want to compare cows which spent the

:18:15.:18:17.

winter indoors to those stay outside. Grid is predominantly a

:18:18.:18:23.

college farm, so we only training centre for the new farmers of the

:18:24.:18:30.

future. Rhodri Owen is the file manager. The ones outside will be

:18:31.:18:36.

moving three, 400 metres a day. The ones in doors will only move may be

:18:37.:18:41.

ten or 20 metres a day. We want to see the impact on the carving

:18:42.:18:49.

process. -- carving process. So I wrote down cows fitter? -- saw

:18:50.:19:02.

our outdoor cows fitter? In truth agriculture has always had to change

:19:03.:19:08.

to adapt to new conditions. And all sorts of technology is coming

:19:09.:19:13.

online, but Harper Adams University is researching the use of drones in

:19:14.:19:18.

farm settings. We use them to do particular work for us, spraying,

:19:19.:19:22.

the area we are researching here. And they are going to be used for

:19:23.:19:28.

delivering parcels and other things. Within the agricultural environment.

:19:29.:19:34.

This is something an organisation AMs to bring innovation to the

:19:35.:19:39.

countryside is keen on promoting. It's also backing the cow pedometer

:19:40.:19:42.

research. We don't usually associate digital

:19:43.:19:47.

technology with the agricultural world. Digital technology affects

:19:48.:19:50.

all our lives at the moment, and will do much more in the future.

:19:51.:19:55.

I took a research to cut the cost of production. In that, farming is no

:19:56.:19:57.

different to any other industry. In that, farming is no different

:19:58.:19:58.

to any other industry. One man who's always steps ahead,

:19:59.:20:01.

here's Tomos with tonight's Sport. Rugby, and Wales' interim

:20:02.:20:03.

Head Coach says he hopes games in the Six Nations won't be decided

:20:04.:20:06.

by red cards. Speaking at the launch

:20:07.:20:08.

of the Championship, Rob Howley revealed he'll

:20:09.:20:11.

have a briefing from referee Nigel Owens after stricter sanctions

:20:12.:20:13.

were brought-in around high tackles. They won't be quite so jovial next
