Hello, this is Breakfast, with Dan walker and Louise Minchin.

:00:00.:00:09.

An overhaul of mental healthcare in England.

:00:10.:00:12.

The Prime Minister offers extra support to schools and companies

:00:13.:00:15.

saying she'll transform the way people with mental

:00:16.:00:17.

Opponents say more funds are still needed.

:00:18.:00:36.

Also this morning: A strike by tube staff closes much

:00:37.:00:42.

of the London Underground for rush hour commuters.

:00:43.:00:50.

It could cost the UK economy ?50 million in lost trade and staff who

:00:51.:00:58.

can't get to work. Unions say the walk out is vital to protect jobs. I

:00:59.:01:02.

will have the details live from London.

:01:03.:01:04.

A fantastic night for the Brits at the Golden Globes.

:01:05.:01:06.

Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Laurie and Olivia Coleman pick up awards

:01:07.:01:09.

for their roles in the BBC's Night Manager.

:01:10.:01:11.

The film La La Land breaks records by winning seven.

from the fourth tier of English football, earn an FA Cup

replay after drawing with Liverpool at Anfield.

:01:27.:01:27.

An icy blast hits large parts of Eastern Europe.

:01:28.:01:30.

These are the conditions on the beaches of Greece.

:01:31.:01:32.

Carol has the details of what it will be like here.

:01:33.:01:35.

By the end of the week some of us could well see some snow. Not all of

:01:36.:01:42.

us, though. Today we have a grey and stamps start with rain moving south

:01:43.:01:46.

eastwards. Behind it we return to some sunshine and blustery showers.

:01:47.:01:49.

And very windy in the more west. I'll have more details

:01:50.:01:53.

on all of that in 15 minutes. Theresa May will outline plans

:01:54.:01:57.

which she says will transform mental In her first major speech on health

:01:58.:02:01.

since becoming Prime Minister, Mrs May will announce a review

:02:02.:02:06.

of services for children and teenagers as well as extra

:02:07.:02:08.

support for schools and businesses. Labour says people are being let

:02:09.:02:11.

down by a lack of funding. Our correspondent

:02:12.:02:15.

Elaine Dunkley reports. There are no words for what it does

:02:16.:02:28.

to a family. Shock is not the word. It is just your whole reality is

:02:29.:02:37.

blown to pieces. In 2014 this woman's son took his own life. He

:02:38.:02:43.

was just 20 years old. He had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. 10

:02:44.:02:46.

weeks later he was dead. Don't discharge patients with inadequate

:02:47.:02:51.

information. The doors were closed for us. We were told to either go to

:02:52.:02:56.

A Amat or the GP and that is the only way to come back. We had no

:02:57.:03:00.

direct access back to the special services. That is wrong. Today the

:03:01.:03:05.

Prime Minister Theresa May is expected to announce plans to reduce

:03:06.:03:08.

the waiting times for patients needing mental health services. The

:03:09.:03:13.

details also include more help from employers when staff need time off

:03:14.:03:17.

work and schools will also be expected to play a bigger role in

:03:18.:03:21.

identifying mentally vulnerable pupils. One of the key concerns is

:03:22.:03:26.

funding. Mental health is still very underfunded compared to other areas

:03:27.:03:34.

of medicine. It generates up to 25% of the total disease burden and yet

:03:35.:03:40.

the funding is 10% - 4%. He was just always making faces. She says

:03:41.:03:49.

talking about her son's life is so important but today she wants the

:03:50.:03:52.

government to take action that will lead to change in mental health

:03:53.:03:54.

services. Our political correspondent Chris

:03:55.:03:55.

Mason is in Westminster for us. There has been a lot of criticism

:03:56.:04:06.

making headlines of the NHS over the weekend. Will it make a difference?

:04:07.:04:12.

Yes, good morning. I think the Prime Minister and Downing Street are

:04:13.:04:15.

aware of the headlines at the moment about the health service. We saw the

:04:16.:04:21.

remarks in the -- from the Red Cross talking about a humanitarian crisis

:04:22.:04:24.

in the health service in England. This speech has been in the diary

:04:25.:04:29.

for the Prime Minister. Time. Part of the bigger picture of what she

:04:30.:04:33.

will talk about will be to create a shared society -- for the Prime

:04:34.:04:37.

will talk about will be to create a Minister for sometime. Be specific

:04:38.:04:40.

mental health, it has been a Cinderella service in the NHS for

:04:41.:04:45.

too long, and it has been associated with too many stigmas and the

:04:46.:04:48.

unwillingness to talk frankly about it. At the same time she will know

:04:49.:04:53.

that in giving this speech she will face lots of questions about the

:04:54.:04:58.

broader health service and questions too about whether funding that is

:04:59.:05:02.

parcelled up for use within mental health services could be spent

:05:03.:05:05.

elsewhere because of pressures on the services elsewhere. What we are

:05:06.:05:09.

also seeing today from the government, not just from the Prime

:05:10.:05:13.

Minister but also from the Foreign Secretary is about a desire to talk

:05:14.:05:16.

about stuff other than Brexit, which will dominate the working life of

:05:17.:05:20.

this government, but the Prime Minister is keen to talk about the

:05:21.:05:24.

health service and the Foreign Secretary is in Washington meeting

:05:25.:05:28.

senior figures of what will soon be the Trump Administration. Yes,

:05:29.:05:32.

Brexit is beat but the business of government rolls on. OK, Chris,

:05:33.:05:36.

thank you very much. We will speak to you later.

:05:37.:05:37.

We'll be speaking to the Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt

:05:38.:05:39.

Severe delays are expected in London during this morning's rush hour

:05:40.:05:49.

because of a strike across the entire tube network.

:05:50.:05:51.

Workers from the RMT and the Transport Salaried Staffs'

:05:52.:05:54.

Association are walking out for 24 hours in a dispute over job losses

:05:55.:05:57.

Ben is at Piccadilly tube station for us this morning.

:05:58.:06:04.

Good morning. A damp and miserable start for many trying to make their

:06:05.:06:13.

way into central London. We are here at Piccadilly Circus. You can see

:06:14.:06:17.

the station is deserted at this point. Normally a thriving heart of

:06:18.:06:23.

London's west end. And as you said, the walkout began last night. Let me

:06:24.:06:28.

run you through the details that we know so far. About 4000 ticket

:06:29.:06:32.

office staff went on strike last night, that began at 6pm, they

:06:33.:06:38.

walking out, objecting to closures of ticket offices and the removal of

:06:39.:06:42.

front-line staff on the tube network, and that means in central

:06:43.:06:47.

London most of the stations are closed, including vital transport

:06:48.:06:53.

hubs, like Euston, Victoria, Kings Cross, the train stations you might

:06:54.:06:56.

pass through if coming into London from elsewhere in the country. This

:06:57.:07:01.

is not a story just about London and certainly not central London, it is

:07:02.:07:05.

about the UK economy too, with estimates suggesting this could cost

:07:06.:07:09.

tens of millions of pounds. One estimates suggest ?50 million

:07:10.:07:17.

impacting the UA -- UK economy and people not getting to work. And of

:07:18.:07:22.

course the reputational damage too. Thousands of tourists pass through

:07:23.:07:25.

stations like this everyday. They are not able to so because of the

:07:26.:07:30.

strike. There is concern about what it could mean for London on the

:07:31.:07:33.

international stage. All morning we will hear from both sides of the

:07:34.:07:37.

debate and find out exactly what has caused it and whether there is hope

:07:38.:07:41.

of a resolution. The London Underground network hope they will

:07:42.:07:44.

try to get a normal service up and running tomorrow morning but of

:07:45.:07:48.

course as always with transport strikes would you often find is that

:07:49.:07:52.

trains are in the wrong place at the wrong time and it might take some

:07:53.:07:56.

time before the full service is up and running. More from me a little

:07:57.:07:59.

later. And we will cover that through the morning as well. And in

:08:00.:08:03.

one hour we will speak to the president of the RMT union, that is

:08:04.:08:07.

around 7:10am. Thousands of British drivers hit

:08:08.:08:09.

by the Volkswagen diesel emissions scandal are taking legal action

:08:10.:08:11.

against the carmaker. VW admitted using software that

:08:12.:08:13.

would cheat emissions tests, A compensation scheme was approved

:08:14.:08:19.

in the United States last year, and lawyers want British customers

:08:20.:08:21.

to be offered a similar settlement. Thousands of police officers

:08:22.:08:26.

in London are to be asked if they want to be routinely armed

:08:27.:08:29.

with a gun or Taser. A survey by the Metropolitan Police

:08:30.:08:32.

Federation will consult its members A spokesman for the force said

:08:33.:08:35.

the number of officers carrying Tasers has increased twice in recent

:08:36.:08:39.

years and that its weapons policy More than a quarter of young people

:08:40.:08:42.

don't feel in control of their lives according to a survey

:08:43.:08:54.

by the Prince's Trust. Worries about money and recent

:08:55.:09:00.

political events are some of the issues making them feel

:09:01.:09:02.

anxious about their future and it found well-being at its

:09:03.:09:05.

lowest in eight years. For 19-year-old merely worldly

:09:06.:09:16.

getting help was crucial to getting her life back on track after her mum

:09:17.:09:23.

died -- Millie Rawley. I faced a series of relationship breakdowns

:09:24.:09:26.

and different forms of abuse until eventually when I was 16 I became

:09:27.:09:30.

homeless for three months and this was when mental health really

:09:31.:09:34.

declined. After receiving treatment in hospital, Milly is living at the

:09:35.:09:37.

YMCA while doing her A-levels and she is now feeling much happier.

:09:38.:09:41.

Compared to years ago I know that where I want to go, what I want to

:09:42.:09:48.

do and I know how to get there. According to the Prince's Trust,

:09:49.:09:51.

which has supported Milly, more than a quarter of young people don't feel

:09:52.:09:55.

in control of their lives. The charity says well-being for 16 to 25

:09:56.:09:59.

-year-olds is at its lowest level in eight years of research. We need to

:10:00.:10:03.

invest in things like programs in schools that are character building

:10:04.:10:09.

and encourage teamwork. I think we need to invest much more heavily in

:10:10.:10:13.

vocational training and further education sector. Concerns over body

:10:14.:10:17.

image, recent political events including the Brexit vote and the

:10:18.:10:21.

serious situation, as well as money worries, were all raised by the

:10:22.:10:24.

survey, issues these young people say are a concern. Of recent

:10:25.:10:29.

political events and the economic outlook, there is just a really high

:10:30.:10:33.

level of uncertainty. You have to have a certain income... A lot of

:10:34.:10:39.

employers expect you to have lots of experience just even to find an

:10:40.:10:44.

entry level job. While life can be difficult for all young people,

:10:45.:10:47.

Milly says it is important to reach out when you know things are really

:10:48.:10:49.

spiralling out of control. More than 20 people have died

:10:50.:10:51.

as a result of freezing temperatures across much of central

:10:52.:10:54.

and eastern Europe. The cold weather has caused major

:10:55.:10:56.

disruption to utility and transport networks while snow has been

:10:57.:10:59.

recorded as far south Our Central Europe correspondent

:11:00.:11:02.

Nick Thorpe joins us from the banks It looks seriously cold, what is

:11:03.:11:22.

going on? Yes, good morning. It is a very cold morning indeed. Not as

:11:23.:11:26.

cold as yesterday. As you can see behind me, the Danube isn't frozen

:11:27.:11:33.

but huge ice flows floating down. They Appiah couple of days ago.

:11:34.:11:37.

Temperatures in Hungary reaching -28 on the northern border with

:11:38.:11:45.

Slovakia, so very cold in Hungary, with huge disruptions, less so in

:11:46.:11:50.

Hungary, down through the Balkans, Romania, Bulgaria, central Europe,

:11:51.:11:54.

Germany and Austria as well. Quite extraordinary pictures. Thank you

:11:55.:12:03.

very much indeed. We will have more on that. The cold weather will be

:12:04.:12:07.

here by the end of the week. Not quite -28, fear not.

:12:08.:12:09.

It was a big night for the British television spy drama

:12:10.:12:16.

The Night Manager, which stormed to success at the 74th Golden Globe

:12:17.:12:19.

I am not really allowed to say that on the BBC. I think you would have

:12:20.:12:24.

given it all of the awards. I would! Tom Hiddleston, Olivia Colman

:12:25.:12:27.

and Hugh Laurie all collected prizes Claire Foy was named best actress

:12:28.:12:30.

in a TV drama as the Queen The night belonged to the Hollywood

:12:31.:12:36.

musical La La Land, which took home Our Los Angeles correspondent

:12:37.:12:40.

James Cook reports. Los Angeles, California, where

:12:41.:12:51.

stories are spun and stars are born, a place of glitz and glamour, of

:12:52.:12:55.

counts and gossip, the place they called... La La Land. La La Land.

:12:56.:13:04.

This is a film for dreamers and I think that hope and creativity are

:13:05.:13:08.

two of the most important things in the world and that is what this

:13:09.:13:11.

movie is about. In the television categories it was a British

:13:12.:13:15.

invasion. Claire Foy was named Best Actress in a TV drama for playing

:13:16.:13:21.

the Queen in the crown, and three awards in the BBC production the

:13:22.:13:25.

night manager allowing Hugh Laurie to have a go at Donald Trump. More

:13:26.:13:30.

amazing to say I want is that the last ever Golden Globes. I don't

:13:31.:13:34.

mean to be gloomy, it is just that it has the word Hollywood, foreign

:13:35.:13:39.

and press in the title. Receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award, Meryl

:13:40.:13:43.

Streep also lambasted the president elect and his plan to deport

:13:44.:13:48.

millions of immigrants. So, Hollywood is crawling with outsiders

:13:49.:13:52.

and foreigners, and if we keep them all out you will have nothing to

:13:53.:13:56.

watch button football and mixed martial arts, which are not the

:13:57.:14:01.

arts. Well, Hollywood can be fun and frivolous but it also prides itself

:14:02.:14:05.

on tackling serious subjects. And many stars here on the red carpet

:14:06.:14:10.

are predicting a surge in political films this year following the most

:14:11.:14:12.

divisive of elections. Well, we'd love to speak to anyone

:14:13.:14:21.

from the Night Manager who would like to call us this morning

:14:22.:14:25.

although I suspect they would be busy. Tom Hiddleston, especially.

:14:26.:14:30.

For editorial reasons, of course. Yes. And it was a big FA Cup

:14:31.:14:35.

weekend. No awards for Liverpool yesterday. I am going to shoehorn

:14:36.:14:40.

from the Golden Globes to the FA Cup. Jurgen Klopp fielded

:14:41.:14:45.

Liverpool's youngest ever starting 11 and today he has to defend that

:14:46.:14:49.

choice after failing to beat Plymouth Argyle in the fourth tier

:14:50.:14:55.

of English football, so, leagues below them, and they couldn't beat

:14:56.:14:59.

them at Anfield, soap or old Jurgen Klopp is coming in for some stick.

:15:00.:15:03.

-- so, poor old Jurgen Klopp. Plymouth Argyle caused a shock

:15:04.:15:09.

in the third round of the FA Cup. The League Two side held Liverpool -

:15:10.:15:13.

the team second in the Premier League - to a goalless draw

:15:14.:15:16.

at Anfield, forcing a replay Premier League leaders Chelsea swept

:15:17.:15:19.

past League One Peterborough 4-1. Despite nine changes to their team,

:15:20.:15:23.

two goals from Pedro helped Chelsea There were also wins for Tottenham,

:15:24.:15:26.

Middlesbrough and Fulham. Wasps returned to the top

:15:27.:15:30.

of rugby union's Premiership with a hard-fought victory

:15:31.:15:32.

over Leicester Tigers. It was their 19th straight home win

:15:33.:15:34.

but James Haskell left the field less than a minute into his comeback

:15:35.:15:38.

game, because of a head injury. Johanna Konta ease into the second

:15:39.:15:49.

round of the Sydney International after winning in straight sets.

:15:50.:15:52.

So, yeah, Johanna Konta enjoying the sunshine in Australia, she reached

:15:53.:16:00.

the semifinals last year, so fingers crossed she can do this will this

:16:01.:16:02.

time. Some of the front pages. On the

:16:03.:16:12.

times this morning is our front to make main story as well. A

:16:13.:16:15.

revolution in child mental healthcare. We will be discussing

:16:16.:16:20.

that later on with the Health Secretary. And the main photo is of

:16:21.:16:23.

the Queen who has had a heavy cold for a few weeks. She went to church

:16:24.:16:27.

yesterday in Sandringham, her first public appearance in a month. She

:16:28.:16:33.

has not been well. I think many people have suffered a horrible

:16:34.:16:38.

cold. The Financial Times are talking about the blizzards in

:16:39.:16:42.

Europe and about the North Sea oil platform saying that UK taxpayers

:16:43.:16:48.

are facing a huge bill for the decommissioning of those oil drills.

:16:49.:16:53.

On the Daily Telegraph, many people on the red carpet at the Golden

:16:54.:16:57.

Globes. This is Meryl Streep who was awarded a lifetime achievement at

:16:58.:17:00.

the Golden Globes and the main story is about Waris -- Boris Johnson

:17:01.:17:09.

the Golden Globes and the main story meeting a member of Donald Trump's

:17:10.:17:17.

team. Class-action on volts wagon. That could cost Fozzard and billions

:17:18.:17:27.

of pounds. -- could cost VW billions of pounds. I noticed on Twitter over

:17:28.:17:34.

the weekend you were getting quite a lot of stick from various football

:17:35.:17:37.

fans about why the BBC had chosen to show only Premier League ties. My

:17:38.:17:47.

life is not dictated by this. It does happen a lot. A lot of people

:17:48.:17:53.

getting in touch saying that it is just the Premier League ties? If

:17:54.:18:00.

none of the managers from low league teams say, they ended up with a

:18:01.:18:04.

goalless draw and they will have a replay and they say, look, why was

:18:05.:18:07.

our match not televise? That is what replay and they say, look, why was

:18:08.:18:11.

the FA Cup is about. Lower league teams getting a chance to be on

:18:12.:18:16.

television. In another manager has come out and said that TV money

:18:17.:18:20.

could build new changing room at the clubs. It would be worth about

:18:21.:18:24.

?75,000 of which is about 25% of its budget for a year. So a really big

:18:25.:18:29.

payday for the lower league clubs but, instead, it was, you know, West

:18:30.:18:34.

Ham and Manchester City on Friday night. Save they say that it's a

:18:35.:18:39.

myth for the low clubs and they hope that when they have their replay it

:18:40.:18:43.

will be the lower league clubs to get their moment in the spotlight

:18:44.:18:46.

because, after all, they say that is what the FA Cup is all about. It was

:18:47.:18:52.

a proper nonleague club and it was lovely. That is what the club is

:18:53.:18:57.

about isn't it? I love this story. Part of being in the office is

:18:58.:19:02.

buying tea and taking part in secret Santa... Anyway, they have done a

:19:03.:19:09.

little thing in the Telegraph, eight Santa... Anyway, they have done a

:19:10.:19:14.

working out of how much it costs you for those added extras. They say

:19:15.:19:22.

that it costs ?40,000 over a typical lifetime of being at work to stay in

:19:23.:19:29.

people's good books. It goes towards cups of tea is, secret Santa is,

:19:30.:19:33.

people leaving... That sort of thing. Collections for new babies.

:19:34.:19:44.

The list is fantastic, obviously. Secret Santa, apparently, the

:19:45.:19:50.

average secret Santa gift is ?42. ?! White! Ounces between five and ?10.

:19:51.:20:02.

Christmas parties and dinners cost the average employee Lee ?96. -- the

:20:03.:20:11.

average employee ?96. If you spend that sort of money on secret Santa,

:20:12.:20:15.

let us know. You need to budget better. 40 grand! Incredible. Over

:20:16.:20:24.

your working lifetime. What did you get for your secret Santa, Carol? I

:20:25.:20:31.

think I got a catfish for my cat and many lovely things to wear outdoors

:20:32.:20:39.

on cold broadcasts. Look at this picture this morning in Wales. This

:20:40.:20:42.

is a Weather Watcher picture from yesterday. It is quite murky and

:20:43.:20:46.

that is what is like across many areas at a harbour has also been

:20:47.:20:48.

reined Reding south-east was as we areas at a harbour has also been

:20:49.:20:52.

go through the course of the day. Courtesy of this weather front. Some

:20:53.:20:55.

rain is heavy and it will eventually reach the south-east. If you look at

:20:56.:20:59.

the squeeze on the ice above that will tell you that it will be very

:21:19.:21:21.

Scotland and northern England, stretching across Wales and entered

:21:22.:21:25.

down into south-west England. Ahead of it, Vista will be a lot of cloud

:21:26.:21:31.

and dampness in the air but as this rain comes it will lift the cloud

:21:32.:21:35.

and the rain will arrive in the south-east through the afternoon.

:21:36.:21:38.

There it goes. Blustery around this band of rain. And behind it, bright

:21:39.:21:43.

skies and sunshine. A lot of showers, wintry on the hill but with

:21:44.:21:48.

exposure on the north and west we are looking at Gales sewed gusts at

:21:49.:21:54.

60, 65 MPh. We are still in mild conditions especially as we pushed

:21:55.:21:57.

down towards the south and the south-east. As we had an through the

:21:58.:22:02.

evening and overnight we need you lose that band of rain. There will

:22:03.:22:07.

also be a touch of frost in some central and eastern areas but

:22:08.:22:11.

already we will have a plethora of showers, some emerging across the

:22:12.:22:14.

north-west. It will still be windy for a time but the wind will either

:22:15.:22:19.

touch in the west as we go through the course of the night. Tomorrow

:22:20.:22:22.

morning we start with the combination. Again, a breezy day, a

:22:23.:22:28.

blustery day, we lose the rain from the south-east and then brighter

:22:29.:22:31.

skies coming across central and eastern areas with sunshine but he

:22:32.:22:34.

comes in next weather front, introducing some more rain and

:22:35.:22:37.

moving from the west towards the east with cloud ahead of it and

:22:38.:22:42.

brighter skies behind. Again, hanging onto this mild air by the

:22:43.:22:47.

skin of our teeth in the south. And then as we move into Wednesday, we

:22:48.:22:52.

continue with the blustery theme. There will be a dry weather around

:22:53.:22:57.

the you may even see the sun. You can see a couple of showers dotted

:22:58.:23:01.

around and some of those could be wintry across the far north of

:23:02.:23:06.

Scotland. The average why is that we are into the cooler air, depending

:23:07.:23:10.

on which end of the country you are in. As we head into the latter part

:23:11.:23:14.

of the week the wind evens out and it will have across the whole of the

:23:15.:23:19.

UK. By the end of the week, there will be a novel north-westerly wind

:23:20.:23:22.

that we look at that is going to turn much colder. Not as cold as it

:23:23.:23:26.

is this morning. Look at southern Europe. Miners 30 in Moscow, -12 in

:23:27.:23:34.

Belgrade, minus three in Athens. These are a good ten to 15 degrees

:23:35.:23:38.

lower than they should be at this stage of the year. The reason for

:23:39.:23:45.

this is because normally we have a Siberian high which is anchored

:23:46.:23:49.

across Russia. How hard you can see it as more of a sausage shape at the

:23:50.:23:52.

moment and what happens with high-pressure is that the echoes

:23:53.:23:56.

around it in a clockwise direction so it is moving up towards the

:23:57.:23:59.

Arctic and pulling this cold air down. Exacerbated by the fact that

:24:00.:24:03.

we also have low pressure off the screen here. That puts it in an

:24:04.:24:06.

anticlockwise direction so it is doing the same thing, pulling the

:24:07.:24:10.

air down towards the Mediterranean. I must say, I am glad I am not there

:24:11.:24:15.

today. So am I. It sounds like we may get a little taste of by the end

:24:16.:24:20.

of this week. We will but it is not connected to what is happening here.

:24:21.:24:23.

We will have a blast of north north-westerly wind. I was watching

:24:24.:24:25.

carefully. See you later. Pets can offer companionship

:24:26.:24:27.

particularly for older people But for elderly animal owners,

a change in circumstances can A leading pet charity has told us

:24:30.:24:35.

they're helping more and more people decide what to do if they can't

:24:36.:24:45.

take their pet into a care home Two years ago, this man's wife died.

:24:46.:25:03.

While grieving, in the bond has deepened. He has been everything to

:25:04.:25:10.

me, that dog. Everything. Here's my life, you know. Home for Bob,

:25:11.:25:14.

Margaret and their pet schnauzer was this of time and village near

:25:15.:25:19.

Lockerbie where he still lives. But the owners have told him that his

:25:20.:25:23.

dog can no longer stay. We met at a nearby hotel. They don't like the

:25:24.:25:29.

dog. I want to kick the dog out and I will have to shift. I will have to

:25:30.:25:35.

be on my way. He is my life. Here's my comfort. My chief companion

:25:36.:25:45.

that's what that little dog means to me. I just love that little dog. The

:25:46.:25:53.

owners of the retirement village did not wish to be interviewed but they

:25:54.:25:57.

said they made a difficult decision because the dog had barked and run

:25:58.:26:02.

and visitors, had fouled in all ways and was sometimes left unsupervised.

:26:03.:26:05.

They said they bought in a social worker to set for Bob and others had

:26:06.:26:11.

offered to look after his beloved pet so Bob could still see him.

:26:12.:26:14.

Ultimately they had to take the views of staff and other residents

:26:15.:26:19.

into account. He does bark but it soon dies off. I admit that he has

:26:20.:26:25.

made a mess because I have cleaned it up. But I don't think he has ever

:26:26.:26:31.

annoyed visitors to any great extent. He loves company. When

:26:32.:26:37.

elderly people going to care the prospect of saying goodbye to a much

:26:38.:26:41.

loved pet can be devastating. According to one piece of research,

:26:42.:26:45.

40% of UK care homes describe themselves as pet friendly. But that

:26:46.:26:52.

expression is open to interpretation and there are calls for greater

:26:53.:26:57.

clarity and consistency. An online petition backing Bob now has around

:26:58.:27:01.

80,000 signatures. The owners of his retirement village say they've

:27:02.:27:07.

received threatening e-mail 's. A sign of how difficult and emotive

:27:08.:27:14.

situations like Bobs can be. He's not leaving me. He very loyal to me.

:27:15.:27:16.

I would like to pay him back. Are you already sending your

:27:17.:27:29.

comments about that? It is hard to watch. MSN -- and that says that she

:27:30.:27:38.

believes the dogs can be helpful but about staff with allergies? Another

:27:39.:27:43.

person suggests that it should be looked at on a case-by-case basis.

:27:44.:27:47.

We will be talking about some of those issues later in the programme.

From dirty door handles to bacteria on the bedspread.

I have read some of that report and, honestly, it really makes me think

:28:04.:28:20.

about going to hotel rooms at all, really. They are not all bad. Just

:28:21.:28:25.

to reiterate. Though not change the channel. Time now to get the news,

warns that cyber security is rising in prominence as a reason for small

businesses not to do more online. Now let's get the Breakfast

:30:26.:30:31.

time weather outlook A very good morning to you. What we

:30:32.:30:43.

can further lies ahead. Come the middle of the week, it does turn

:30:44.:30:47.

distinctively colder and indeed more wintry. But this morning it's a wet

:30:48.:30:52.

and windy and indeed mild start to the day. This weather front pulling

:30:53.:30:56.

that rain away fairly quickly and actually it does clear away. Behind

:30:57.:31:00.

it it does turn colder but a lot brighter. We will see showers across

:31:01.:31:05.

western areas initially as the winds veers into the West. Will see those

:31:06.:31:09.

showers becoming more frequent in western part but a lot of dry

:31:10.:31:12.

weather for the south of the East during daylight hours with spells of

:31:13.:31:16.

sunshine. Much brighter to. Gales develop a crossed the north-west

:31:20.:31:25.

eventually falling to 6-8. Into this evening, the showers becoming more

Hello, this is Breakfast with Dan Walker and Louise Minchin.

:31:53.:31:55.

It's 6:30am, on Monday, the ninth of January.

:31:56.:31:59.

We'll bring you all the latest news and sport in a moment,

:32:00.:32:03.

but also on Breakfast this morning: The NHS has been hitting

:32:04.:32:06.

the headlines with claims it faces a humanitarian crisis.

:32:07.:32:09.

We'll ask Jeremy Hunt about the state of the health

:32:10.:32:12.

service and the government's plans to tackle mental illness.

:32:13.:32:16.

A study of young people reveals they don't feel in control

:32:17.:32:19.

We'll ask what can be done to raise their self esteem.

America's best loved soprano joins us after 9am.

:32:41.:32:45.

But now a summary of this morning's main news.

:32:46.:32:50.

Theresa May will outline plans that she says will transform mental

:32:51.:32:53.

In her first major speech on health since becoming Prime Minister,

:32:54.:32:56.

Mrs May will announce a review of services for children

:32:57.:32:59.

and teenagers as well as extra support for schools and businesses.

:33:00.:33:02.

Labour says people are being let down by a lack of funding.

:33:03.:33:05.

Our correspondent Elaine Dunkley reports.

:33:06.:33:11.

There are no words for what it does to a family.

:33:12.:33:14.

It's just your whole reality is blown to pieces.

:33:15.:33:31.

In 2014, Dr Sanghita Mahajan's son took his own life.

:33:32.:33:34.

He had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

:33:35.:33:38.

Don't discharge patients with adequate information.

:33:39.:33:46.

We were told to either go to A or the GP and that is the only way

:33:47.:33:52.

We had no direct access back to the special services.

:33:53.:33:56.

Today, the Prime Minister, Theresa May, is expected to announce

:33:57.:34:00.

plans to reduce the waiting times for patients needing

:34:01.:34:02.

The details also include more help from employers when staff need time

:34:03.:34:06.

off work, and schools will also be expected to play a bigger role

:34:07.:34:10.

in identifying mentally vulnerable pupils.

:34:11.:34:11.

Mental health is still very underfunded compared to where other

:34:12.:34:17.

It generates probably 20%-25% of the total disease burden and yet

:34:18.:34:29.

the funding is 10%-12% in this country.

:34:30.:34:31.

Sangeeta says talking about her son's life is so important

:34:32.:34:39.

but today she wants the government to take

:34:40.:34:41.

action that will lead to change in mental health services.

:34:42.:34:46.

We'll be speaking to the Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt

:34:47.:34:51.

at 7:50am this morning here on Breakfast.

:34:52.:34:56.

About that and other matters as well.

:34:57.:34:58.

Boris Johnson has held talks with some of Donald Trump's key

:34:59.:35:01.

The Foreign Secretary has become the first British minister to hold

:35:02.:35:07.

face-to-face meetings with members of the

:35:08.:35:08.

President-elect's incoming administration.

:35:09.:35:09.

The exchanges were described by officials as positive but frank.

:35:10.:35:13.

Severe delays are expected in London during this morning's rush hour

:35:14.:35:16.

because of a strike across the entire tube network.

:35:17.:35:18.

Workers from the RMT and the Transport Salaried Staffs'

:35:19.:35:21.

Assocition are walking out for 24 hours in a dispute over job losses

:35:22.:35:24.

The first tube stations began closing

:35:25.:35:36.

soon after the strike began last night.

:35:37.:35:38.

Many more are expected to follow today,

:35:39.:35:40.

There will be no underground services from any of the big London

:35:41.:35:46.

rail stations, such as King's Cross, Waterloo and Paddington.

:35:47.:35:48.

The dispute is over job losses and ticket office closures.

:35:49.:35:53.

At last-ditch talks yesterday, Transport for London said it had

:35:54.:35:58.

offered to employ new staff, but the TSSA Union said

:35:59.:36:01.

The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said the strike would cause misery

:36:02.:36:06.

He said there was a good deal sitting on the table

:36:07.:36:10.

The last time there was a major tube strike was in the summer of 2015.

:36:11.:36:16.

As on that occasion, there will be extra bus services

:36:17.:36:20.

laid on, but it's expected they will struggle to cope

:36:21.:36:23.

If tube stations open at all, it will probably be later

:36:24.:36:31.

than normal, and many will close at 7:00pm in the evening,

:36:32.:36:34.

even though the strike will have finished by then.

:36:35.:36:37.

Transport for London says it expects the tube service

:36:38.:36:39.

Thousands of British drivers affected by the Volkswagen diesel

:36:40.:36:43.

emissions scandal are taking legal action against the carmaker.

:36:44.:36:45.

VW admitted using software that would cheat emissions tests,

:36:46.:36:48.

leading to a recall of millions of cars worldwide.

:36:49.:36:50.

A compensation scheme was approved in the United States last year,

Police in Tyne and Wear have to be offered a similar settlement.

hostages at a bookmakers in an armed seige.

:37:07.:37:08.

Northumbria Police were called to a branch of Coral bookmakers

:37:09.:37:11.

in Jarrow on Sunday evening following a report of a man

:37:12.:37:14.

Four people were thought to have been held in the incident,

:37:15.:37:18.

with three being released before police ended the standoff

:37:19.:37:21.

and a 39-year-old man was taken into custody.

It was a big night for the British television spy drama

The Night Manager, which stormed to success at the 74th

:37:44.:37:46.

It was a big night for the British television spy drama

:37:47.:37:53.

The night belonged to the Hollywood musical La La Land, which took home

:37:54.:37:56.

Claire Foy, star of Netflix's The Crown,

:37:57.:37:59.

I really, really, really wouldn't be here if it wasn't for some

:38:00.:38:06.

extraordinary women. I am going to thank them. One of them is Queen

:38:07.:38:11.

Elizabeth II. She has been at the centre of the world for the past 63

:38:12.:38:16.

years and I think the world could do with a few more women at the centre

:38:17.:38:18.

of it, if you ask me. And we'll speak to the creative

:38:19.:38:23.

minds behind the success There has been some great drama

:38:24.:38:40.

going on. The FA Cup third round, when the draw was made, there were

:38:41.:38:45.

complaints that they were not those beautiful ties, but they have kept

:38:46.:38:49.

us entertained. Did you hear in the award are talking about Fulham

:38:50.:38:59.

versus Cardiff, he was supposed to sell it to the game, and he said,

:39:00.:39:03.

well, it isn't going to grab the headlines, is it, and for those who

:39:04.:39:07.

turn up it won't be exciting. Sell it! Liverpool and Plymouth Argyle

:39:08.:39:15.

provided a shock. It is the kind of game we look out for. I think what I

:39:16.:39:21.

liked most about results like that is the confidence it gives smaller

:39:22.:39:28.

teams. So exciting. Derek Adams, the manager, said his team's performance

:39:29.:39:32.

was one of the best defensive displays that Anfield has ever seen.

:39:33.:39:36.

You cannot knock confidence like that. He has thrown it out there! He

:39:37.:39:41.

has. League Two Plymouth Argyle have

:39:42.:39:42.

earned a replay with Liverpool in the third round of the FA Cup

:39:43.:39:45.

after a goalless draw at Anfield. It was the youngest starting line-up

:39:46.:39:49.

in Liverpool history and manager Jurgen Klopp was forced

:39:50.:39:51.

to send for the likes of England striker Daniel Sturridge

:39:52.:39:55.

from the bench. Even he couldn't find a way

:39:56.:39:56.

through the stubborn Plymouth They will now welcome

:39:57.:40:01.

the Premier League giants home. It causes us an extra headache, as

:40:02.:40:08.

it does for Liverpool. It is great for the city. We are still in the

:40:09.:40:11.

next round of the FA Cup as well. Frustrated by the percentages. I

:40:12.:40:18.

knew before the game, actually, with the other line up it could have been

:40:19.:40:22.

exactly the same. We could have encountered the same problem. It is

:40:23.:40:26.

not really likely, but possible. That is a very important experience

:40:27.:40:30.

for the boys. I am happy for this. Obviously they want another game,

:40:31.:40:35.

they deserved it. And now we will go there and try to do that.

:40:36.:40:38.

Premier League leaders Chelsea had no such problems

:40:39.:40:40.

against League One Peterborough United. Chelsea registered 35 shots

:40:41.:40:43.

on goal in their 4-1 victory at Stamford Bridge,

:40:44.:40:45.

Spanish striker Pedro scoring twice.

:40:46.:40:46.

Tottenham overcame a stubborn Aston Villa.

:40:47.:40:48.

After a dreadful first half, they ground out at 2-0 win.

:40:49.:40:51.

Ben Davies scoring his first goal for Spurs.

:40:52.:40:58.

Wasps are confident that England flanker James Haskell will make

:40:59.:41:00.

a quick recovery from the head injury he suffered during his

:41:01.:41:03.

After a seven-month absence, Haskell lasted just 35 seconds

:41:04.:41:07.

in their win over Leicester, which took Wasps back to the top

:41:08.:41:10.

He appeared to be knocked out after a tackle but he was able

:41:11.:41:15.

Three British tennis players have been in action overnight,

:41:16.:41:26.

in the run-up to the Australian Open.

:41:27.:41:28.

Dan Evans won his match in Sydney, but Kyle Edmund was knocked out.

:41:29.:41:31.

And Johanna Konta beat Arina Rodionova in straight sets.

:41:32.:41:34.

Konta reached the semi-finals at the Australian Open last year

:41:35.:41:37.

and she's had a pretty good start to the season.

:41:38.:41:41.

In the BDO World Darts Championships, three-time champion

Martin "Wolfie" Adams came from behind to beat fellow

:41:44.:41:45.

Englishman Ryan Joyce 3-2, and reach the second round.

:41:46.:41:48.

There was no dividing the pair so the fifth set went to sudden

:41:49.:41:51.

death and Adams finished with a double nine to take

:41:52.:41:54.

England's Lisa Ashton beat Sharon Prins of the Netherlands

:41:55.:42:06.

to reach the second round in the women's draw.

:42:07.:42:08.

Ashton has won this title twice, and she looked comfortable

:42:09.:42:11.

And you know when we were talking about secret Santas and clubbing

:42:12.:42:20.

together? Oh, yeah. There's often talk about football

:42:21.:42:23.

clubs giving back to supporters but here's an example of fans

:42:24.:42:25.

literally giving back to their club. Morecambe manager Jim Bentley

:42:26.:42:28.

was recently fined ?1,000 after being sent from the touchline

:42:29.:42:31.

against Cheltenham. But with the League Two side

:42:32.:42:33.

struggling financially, supporters have clubbed together

:42:34.:42:35.

and given Bentley the cash He was moved to tears

:42:36.:42:38.

by the gesture. He was really quite emotional,

:42:39.:42:46.

wasn't he? , there he is. Oh, bless him. He is gonna go. You have a tear

:42:47.:42:59.

in your eye... Oh, bless him. He did the thing that blokes do, just

:43:00.:43:04.

shrugged his shoulders. I don't care! Oh, that is lovely, that,

:43:05.:43:12.

isn't it? Another nice lower league team story. I can't imagine

:43:13.:43:16.

Manchester United players helping Jose Mourinho. Well, they are fined

:43:17.:43:21.

about 100 grand, aren't they? It's the beginning of a difficult

:43:22.:43:23.

week for commuters with drivers on Southern Rail expected to walk

:43:24.:43:26.

out for three days from tomorrow, and last night station and ticket

:43:27.:43:30.

staff on the London Underground Several rounds of emergency talks

:43:31.:43:33.

had failed to break the deadlock between Transport for

:43:34.:43:37.

London and the Unions. Ben is at Piccadilly tube station

:43:38.:43:39.

for us this morning. Normally it would be incredibly

:43:40.:43:52.

busy, but a no go today. Yes, good morning to you, welcome to the start

:43:53.:43:56.

of a difficult week for commuters, especially in London, the gates at

:43:57.:44:01.

Piccadilly Circus firmly shut, normally of course at this time of

:44:02.:44:05.

day one of the busiest stations on the network right in the heart of

:44:06.:44:09.

London and if you don't know where I am, this would give you a clue, the

:44:10.:44:13.

centre of the West End in London, and it is coming to a halt. There is

:44:14.:44:18.

all sorts of entrances and exits for the tube station here but it is

:44:19.:44:23.

buses and cars and roads that will bear the brunt of this. And remember

:44:24.:44:27.

it is not just about getting around in central London, it is coming into

:44:28.:44:34.

London, network stations like Euston, Paddington, Victoria likely

:44:35.:44:38.

to face problems because those stations are shut. Why is the

:44:39.:44:44.

walkout under way? Here is an industrial relations adviser. Good

:44:45.:44:47.

morning. Why are we in this situation, why is the network not

:44:48.:44:53.

running? This strike is about closures to ticket offices,

:44:54.:44:56.

reductions in staff that have already happened, introduced by the

:44:57.:44:58.

previous mayor. (INAUDIBLE).

:44:59.:45:04.

Owed, the blue screen. Apologies for that. We will speak to the union

:45:05.:45:14.

later on and, of course, if you are affected by it, feel free to get in

:45:15.:45:18.

touch with us. Lots of people I imagine we'll have to walk to work.

:45:19.:45:23.

Yes, in and around London it will be busy on the roads, and nothing on

:45:24.:45:27.

the tubes. We will keep you right up to date.

:45:28.:45:40.

Up to 4 million commuters face significant disruption this morning

:45:41.:45:44.

because of the strike across the entire London Underground network.

:45:45.:45:48.

It is about jobs and ticket office closures. We may not be able to

:45:49.:45:57.

speak to Ben but we can talk to Carol and there is plenty to talk

:45:58.:46:03.

about. It is murky, isn't it? Perfect. Murky is a good way and I'm

:46:04.:46:14.

glad you use it. Take your umbrella out later on because it is murky and

:46:15.:46:17.

London. Rain spreading south-east and it is what across Ireland and

:46:18.:46:23.

Scotland courtesy of this weather front which is continuing south

:46:24.:46:28.

eastwards through the day. Right behind it, look at that squeeze. It

:46:29.:46:33.

will be windy in the north-west with gales. A lot of rain as we have gone

:46:34.:46:38.

through the night so there will be a lot of spray on the roads and

:46:39.:46:42.

surface water this morning. Take care. By the time we reach eight

:46:43.:46:46.

o'clock the rain will be across southern Scotland with showers

:46:47.:46:50.

coming behind and turning colder. A mild start to the day and the rain

:46:51.:46:55.

will come in across the north of England, Wales and also south-west

:46:56.:47:01.

England. Ahead of it there is a lot of low cloud. Murky and damp. A few

:47:02.:47:05.

in the south may see a little bit of brightness but it will not last for

:47:06.:47:10.

long because as we go through the day the rain will continue to sink

:47:11.:47:13.

south. Blustery wind around as a pushes to the south and behind that,

:47:14.:47:20.

right skies with sunshine. Wintry in nature and then we are looking at

:47:21.:47:31.

gusts around 65 MPh. As we had an through the evening and overnight

:47:32.:47:36.

period we lose that rain quickly from the south-east. There will be

:47:37.:47:41.

clearance in the sky. Some frost across parts of central and eastern

:47:42.:47:44.

areas and then a platter of showers coming in. Some merging for longer

:47:45.:47:49.

spells of rain. It will still be windy in the north and that

:47:50.:47:52.

transfers to the north-east and the wind will start to drop a bit in the

:47:53.:47:56.

north-west. As we go into tomorrow's still a cloudy start where we have

:47:57.:48:02.

frost we have clear skies. It will not last because everything will

:48:03.:48:05.

move from the west towards the east so the rain will eventually reach

:48:06.:48:10.

the east over the course of the day. Blustery winds with it. If you step

:48:11.:48:14.

out, it is still mild in the south but colder in the north and you will

:48:15.:48:19.

start to feel let especially if you are exposed to the wind. On

:48:20.:48:23.

Wednesday a lot of dry weather around. There will be sunshine and a

:48:24.:48:28.

lot of cloud at times. Phil showers but as the cool air comes in from

:48:29.:48:32.

the north we will see some showers turning a bit more wintry in nature.

:48:33.:48:42.

The cold air seeps across as all as we had three Thursday and into

:48:43.:48:46.

Friday. The wind will come from the north and it will come down from the

:48:47.:48:50.

Arctic so that means as we head towards the latter part of this

:48:51.:48:55.

week, especially on Friday, we are looking at drifts off snow and that

:48:56.:48:59.

snow could be almost anywhere. But I know means will we all see it. I

:49:00.:49:05.

don't want to build up your expectations but someone will be

:49:06.:49:10.

seeing the all I heard was no almost anywhere. And I'm excited. I know

:49:11.:49:16.

causes big issues but it looks lovely. Thank you, Carol. We will

:49:17.:49:23.

try to reconnect the cup with a very long piece of string down to

:49:24.:49:29.

Picadilly Station. Ben, are you there? I am. Good morning. It is the

:49:30.:49:34.

dampeners that Carol was talking about that is finally reached the

:49:35.:49:38.

camera. 24-hour strike that has crippled the tube network this

:49:39.:49:43.

morning. With me is anti-. We were speaking earlier about why we in

:49:44.:49:48.

this position. What has gone on and why is the tube not running this

:49:49.:49:52.

morning? It is about changes that have already happened, changes to

:49:53.:49:58.

ticket offices and changes to staff. Under Boris Johnson those changes

:49:59.:50:02.

were made and the union is now putting pressure on the new mayor to

:50:03.:50:07.

get that changed. Why are we striking about something that has

:50:08.:50:12.

already happened? The union says we need this stuff on the frontline yet

:50:13.:50:16.

TFL say they can take the staff from the ticket office. Many of the

:50:17.:50:21.

agreements were made 30, 40, 50 years ago when they do not reflect

:50:22.:50:25.

the changes to technology and the way the passengers these days

:50:26.:50:29.

conduct their journeys. What we're seeing here is the employer, TFL, we

:50:30.:50:33.

are trying to make efficiencies and use of staff in a different way to

:50:34.:50:37.

reflect the way that technology has changed the way their journeys take

:50:38.:50:41.

place. The strike is due to end at six o'clock this evening. Is there

:50:42.:50:45.

any hope of an agreement in this long-running dispute? I hope so. I

:50:46.:50:52.

think it will be difficult to see because the unions are trying to

:50:53.:50:56.

project jobs on the Roald agreements. It is difficult to see

:50:57.:51:02.

how they will compromise was unless the employer agrees. Good to talk to

:51:03.:51:10.

you. Thank you for hanging with us while we thought about the technical

:51:11.:51:14.

problems. You heard it there. The strike is under way due went at six

:51:15.:51:18.

o'clock tonight but crucial if you are trying to get around London will

:51:19.:51:22.

be difficult and if you are coming into London, the network train

:51:23.:51:26.

stations will also be affected as far as the underground is concerned.

:51:27.:51:30.

Paddington, Victoria, they are expected to be busy. More from me a

:51:31.:51:34.

little later. Thank you very much and we will speak to the unions at

:51:35.:51:39.

ten past seven. A few posh hotels around that part of London as well.

:51:40.:51:43.

Staying in a 5-star hotel is supposed to be one of the

:51:44.:51:45.

indulgences of life. A rare treat in which

:51:46.:51:55.

the levels of comfort and service justifies the hefty

:51:56.:51:58.

bill that comes with it. But an investigation by the BBC's

:51:59.:52:00.

Rip Off Britain: Holidays programme found that a room in one luxury

:52:01.:52:03.

hotel was teeming with hidden bacteria while a two-star option

:52:04.:52:07.

was almost spotless. It was the last set of samples that

:52:08.:52:13.

were received and they definitely stood out but not in a good way. The

:52:14.:52:18.

last hotel, from all the hotels that we sampled is the dirtiest

:52:19.:52:21.

across-the-board. Almost all of the samples he had high or very high

:52:22.:52:25.

levels of bacteria. Two of them in particular, with the first to spot

:52:26.:52:30.

no guest is likely to be able to avoid. The bathroom door handle, the

:52:31.:52:37.

levels were high and it stands out. Door handles are important to clean.

:52:38.:52:41.

As you leave the toilet the handle is the area everybody has touched

:52:42.:52:47.

and not everybody has a robust handwashing technique and therefore

:52:48.:52:51.

the chances of contamination from the door handle are high. That has

:52:52.:53:00.

not fade as feel great this morning. -- not made us feel great this

:53:01.:53:02.

morning. Liz Smith-Mills is from

:53:03.:53:02.

the British Institute of Cleaning. You would assume that a 5-star hotel

:53:03.:53:13.

would be as clean, at least, as any other hotel. The majority of hotels

:53:14.:53:18.

are spotlessly clean however there are differences in standards.

:53:19.:53:22.

Sometimes you can get higher standards in lower star hotels. It

:53:23.:53:25.

is all down to the level of cleaning and the regimes that are put into

:53:26.:53:29.

place. As well is the training of the staff and how they put

:53:30.:53:33.

procedures in practice into place. It is not surprising that sometimes

:53:34.:53:38.

they are not always what you expect. It could have been one of us in that

:53:39.:53:42.

hotel but there are things to watch out for. Those things are, like you

:53:43.:53:49.

showed, the remote-controls, often has the highest level of

:53:50.:53:53.

contamination, door handles, switches, anything that is a contact

:53:54.:53:57.

point that many people touch a lot of the time. And there are other

:53:58.:54:00.

things you would recommend that people would do. What do you

:54:01.:54:05.

recommend? This is the firing of the skull but you know people who take

:54:06.:54:11.

this with them into hotels. That is really the extreme where people are

:54:12.:54:15.

taking their own sanitiser with them because they are worried that they

:54:16.:54:21.

will pick up and affection. Lots of people carry them these days because

:54:22.:54:24.

there is no water facility sometimes. I was in a hotel recently

:54:25.:54:28.

where the water was cut off because they had an issue. I was latter had

:54:29.:54:33.

hand sanitiser with me. Again, these are extreme measures. I have

:54:34.:54:37.

actually come during the course of an inspection stayed in a hotel

:54:38.:54:40.

where the carpet has made vacuumed well. I have found old nail

:54:41.:54:43.

clippings. Hence the carpet slippers. Everybody, enjoy your

:54:44.:54:52.

cornflakes. Again, you cannot tell about farming. You may assume, for

:54:53.:54:56.

example, that door handles may not be clean but one of the things that

:54:57.:55:01.

really made me not feel very good is about bed covers. Yes. I must admit

:55:02.:55:07.

that the sheets and the pillowcases are changed daily but it is the

:55:08.:55:11.

throw when the cushion, sometimes they are thrown on the floor,

:55:12.:55:16.

sometimes the staff may inadvertently put them on the floor

:55:17.:55:19.

when they change the beds. So, yes... What can you do about that?

:55:20.:55:26.

We recommend that there is regular periodic cleaning of the duvet

:55:27.:55:40.

cover. That has all got to be plan. How long do stuff normally get to

:55:41.:55:45.

clean a room? The industry standard used to be 30 minutes, two rooms an

:55:46.:55:53.

hour. Some companies have cut back and staff are under a lot of

:55:54.:55:57.

pressure and they do not have time to do things like high-level

:55:58.:56:00.

cleaning and attention to detail and that is how things get mist. These

:56:01.:56:06.

are things that you always do,? I like to keep my toothbrush covered

:56:07.:56:09.

because one never knows what is coming out of the toilet when you

:56:10.:56:13.

flush. Also on the bathroom surfaces you never really know what has been

:56:14.:56:17.

put down on the bathroom surfaces. The go. It goes over the head. And

:56:18.:56:23.

you have a shower cap sometimes? Yes. And an come -- I sometimes use

:56:24.:56:35.

a shower cap straight out of the packet and cling to cover my

:56:36.:56:44.

toothbrush. How about the TV remote control? What should I do? There are

:56:45.:56:48.

antibacterial wipes you can use but again it is all down to correct

:56:49.:56:52.

training of staff to carry out these functions. Thank you very much in

:56:53.:57:03.

the meantime. Rip-off British holidays is an immediately after

:57:04.:57:06.

breakfast this morning. Get in touch with us as well. Have you been

:57:07.:57:13.

concerned? Any questions as well. Bring your sanitiser with you.

:57:14.:57:21.

A report out today says we could get more low-carbon power for less money

:57:22.:57:27.

by devolving control over Scottish customers' electricity bills.

:57:28.:57:31.

All UK consumers are set to pay for the government's new nuclear

:57:32.:57:33.

But the study for the Scottish Greens by Aberdeen University

:57:34.:57:39.

suggests Scots could fund almost twice as much power from onshore

:57:40.:57:42.

To achieve this, the Scottish Greens are calling for control over energy

:57:43.:57:49.

Scotland's police watchdog is to examine the way

:57:50.:57:54.

The exercise comes ahead of the proposed transfer

:57:55.:57:59.

Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabularies in Scotland

:58:00.:58:03.

will conduct the study with its English and

:58:04.:58:05.

They'll be looking at various aspects of operation within

:58:06.:58:11.

the force which is responsible for policing the UK's railways.

:58:12.:58:15.

They'll also examine how BTP in Scotland can be integrated

:58:16.:58:21.

into the main force and how it would deal with

:58:22.:58:23.

Reforms are needed to Scotland's skills system to meet the challenges

:58:24.:58:27.

facing the country's economy, according to a think tank.

:58:28.:58:31.

The Institute for Public Policy Research in Scotland says

:58:32.:58:33.

technological changes will alter traditional low and mid-skilled

:58:34.:58:35.

roles and as a result people will need to be better supported

:58:36.:58:38.

The think tank says that will mean changes to apprenticeships,

:58:39.:58:46.

Breakfast time weather now and it's over to Judith with the outlook

:58:47.:58:53.

Good morning. Is very good morning to you at home as well. A very

:58:54.:59:04.

interesting week is whether. It's going to turn progressively wintry

:59:05.:59:09.

from mid week onwards. This morning it's mild, wet and windy. This cold

:59:10.:59:14.

front sweeping across the country quickly taking the rain with it so

:59:15.:59:18.

it will be clear fairly quickly this morning and then brighter conditions

:59:19.:59:22.

from the West with spells of sunshine. Dry weather for the south

:59:23.:59:26.

and east as we had through the morning. The afternoon, showers

:59:27.:59:29.

developing. Frequent showers in the West. Strong south-westerly wind

:59:30.:59:35.

will ease and then they will via to the west and pick up a game. Gales

:59:36.:59:41.

for the Western Isles into the severe category at times towards

:59:42.:59:46.

evening. Temperatures falling after a mild start. 7-8. Showers becoming

:59:47.:59:50.

more frequent in the evening, more widespread. They will pick up in the

:59:51.:59:56.

north and then ease and then the showers will become more confined to

:59:57.:59:59.

Western areas with temperatures falling to 3-4 C.

:00:00.:00:02.

There are wind warnings for a few of the bridges this morning -

:00:03.:00:07.

the Kessock, Dornoch, Erskine and Forth Road bridges.

:00:08.:00:08.

There's also a speed restriction on the Tay Road Bridge

:00:09.:00:11.

On the ferries, CalMac has cancelled its Barra

:00:12.:00:14.

and South Uist services today because of forecasted high winds.

:00:15.:00:18.

There are warnings for a few others so do check ahead.

:00:19.:00:21.

The trains are largely fine, but the 08:02 Wick to Inverness

:00:22.:00:24.

It's hoped buses will be deployed instead.

:00:25.:00:30.

I will be back with the latest travel in half an hour. The

Also this morning: A strike by tube staff closes much

:01:13.:01:20.

of the London Underground for rush hour commuters.

:01:21.:01:26.

The walkout might cost the UK economy up to ?50 million in lost

:01:27.:01:33.

business and staff who cannot get to work. Unions say the walkout is

:01:34.:01:38.

vital to protect jobs. I will have the details live from London.

The film La La Land breaks records by winning seven.

:01:49.:01:51.

And Meryl Streep has a swipe at Mr Trump. Hollywood is full of

:01:52.:01:59.

outsiders and foreigners and if you keep them all out there will be

:02:00.:02:02.

nothing to watch button football and mixed martial arts.

:02:03.:02:03.

In sport, an excellent result for Plymouth Argyle,

:02:04.:02:06.

from the fourth tier of English football,

These are the conditions on the beaches of Greece.

:02:16.:02:17.

Carol has the details of what it will be like here.

:02:18.:02:21.

By the end of the week some of us could well see some snow.

:02:22.:02:27.

Today we have a grey and damp start with rain

:02:28.:02:34.

Behind it we return to some sunshine and blustery showers.

:02:35.:02:39.

I'll have more details on all of that in 15 minutes.

:02:40.:02:44.

Theresa May will outline plans which she says will transform mental

:02:45.:02:49.

In her first major speech on health since becoming Prime Minister,

:02:50.:02:53.

Mrs May will announce a review of services for children

:02:54.:02:56.

and teenagers as well as extra support for schools and businesses.

Our correspondent Elaine Dunkley reports.

:03:03.:03:07.

There are no words for what it does to a family.

:03:08.:03:11.

It's just your whole reality is blown to pieces.

:03:12.:03:16.

In 2014, Dr Sangeeta Mahajan's son took his own life.

:03:17.:03:25.

He had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

:03:26.:03:28.

Don't discharge patients with adequate information.

:03:29.:03:37.

We were told to either go to A or your GP and that's the only way

:03:38.:03:49.

We had no direct access back to the special services.

:03:50.:03:53.

Today, the Prime Minister, Theresa May, is expected to announce

:03:54.:03:57.

plans to reduce the waiting times for patients needing

:03:58.:04:00.

The details also include more help from employers when staff need time

:04:01.:04:03.

off work, and schools will also be expected to play a bigger role

:04:04.:04:06.

in identifying mentally vulnerable pupils.

:04:07.:04:08.

Mental health is still very underfunded compared to other

:04:09.:04:12.

It generates probably 20%-25% of the total disease burden

:04:13.:04:27.

of all diseases and yet the funding is 10%-12% in this country.

:04:28.:04:30.

Sangeeta says talking about her son's life is so important

:04:31.:04:34.

but today she wants the government to take

:04:35.:04:37.

action that will lead to change in mental health services.

:04:38.:04:44.

Our political correspondent Chris Mason is in Westminster for us.

:04:45.:04:51.

Lots of criticism of the NHS. We saw what the Red Cross said, a

:04:52.:04:59.

humanitarian crisis. This will bring more attention to mental health

:05:00.:05:05.

services. Yes, good morning. Real focus from the Prime Minister on

:05:06.:05:08.

mental health services. She will make a speech in the context of

:05:09.:05:16.

headline after headline on the broader state of the health

:05:17.:05:19.

services. The remarks from the Red Cross repeated by the chief

:05:20.:05:22.

executive of the organisation in an article in the Times this morning,

:05:23.:05:26.

which says those who criticised him for completing the situation in the

:05:27.:05:31.

NHS with war zones around the world are mistaken and that he has looked

:05:32.:05:36.

at the definition as he sees it of a humanitarian crisis and he thinks it

:05:37.:05:40.

is an accurate label for the health service at the moment. The Prime

:05:41.:05:43.

Minister today will say what she will say in a broad context, talking

:05:44.:05:47.

about her philosophy for being Prime Minister. We have heard umpteen

:05:48.:05:55.

amounts of speeches and words about Brexit and she is conscious she

:05:56.:05:58.

doesn't want to be defined by that. She will talk about the shared

:05:59.:06:03.

society. That is her big picture philosophy. It isn't just are

:06:04.:06:06.

setting out an agenda that is more than just Brexit today. The Foreign

:06:07.:06:12.

Secretary Boris Johnson is meeting senior figures in the

:06:13.:06:15.

Secretary Boris Johnson is meeting administration and leading

:06:16.:06:17.

Republicans as well. I think the government is conscious that, love

:06:18.:06:21.

it or hate it, Brexit will dominate the coming months so we have to talk

:06:22.:06:25.

about other stuff as well. Always good to talk to you. Thank you.

:06:26.:06:30.

-- Severe delays are expected in London during this morning's rush

:06:31.:06:43.

hour because of a strike across the entire tube network.

:06:44.:06:46.

Workers from the RMT and the Transport Salaried Staffs'

:06:47.:06:49.

Association are walking out for 24 hours in a dispute over job losses

:06:50.:06:52.

Ben is at Piccadilly tube station for us this morning.

:06:53.:06:56.

It is really strange and quiet. Yes, good morning. Welcome to a cold,

:06:57.:07:01.

damp and frustrating start to the week for many here in London. You

:07:02.:07:05.

will know this is the heart of the West End, normally very busy here,

:07:06.:07:08.

four entrances and exits to Piccadilly Circus alone, but all are

:07:09.:07:11.

closed this morning as the tube strike yet under way. Let me run you

:07:12.:07:17.

through the details. The strike began at 6pm last night when 4000

:07:18.:07:22.

ticket office staff went on strike. They are objecting to job losses and

:07:23.:07:27.

the closure of a number of ticket offices closed by the former Mayor

:07:28.:07:31.

Boris Johnson. That means that here in central London and number of

:07:32.:07:35.

stations are closed. In fact, all of them within the central area. That

:07:36.:07:40.

includes stations you might use if coming into London, that includes

:07:41.:07:44.

Euston, Paddington, Victoria, mainline stations. The tube

:07:45.:07:49.

connections are shut. This isn't just about London or the capital or

:07:50.:07:55.

the south-east, it is about the UK a economy, because estimates suggest

:07:56.:08:00.

this could cost the UK economy ?50 million, and that has a big impact

:08:01.:08:05.

on the wider economy but also on the UK reputation. Thousands of tourists

:08:06.:08:10.

would have passed through this spot trying to get around London, so they

:08:11.:08:15.

won't be able to do so. The strike is getting under way at 6pm, but as

:08:16.:08:20.

we often find out, the trains could be in the wrong place at the wrong

:08:21.:08:24.

time, so it might take much longer to get the services up and running.

:08:25.:08:28.

The unions for their part say the walkout is necessary to protect

:08:29.:08:32.

jobs. We will hear from both sides of the debate over the course of the

:08:33.:08:34.

morning. More from me a later. Thousands of British drivers hit

:08:35.:08:38.

by the Volkswagen diesel emissions scandal are taking legal action

:08:39.:08:40.

against the carmaker. VW admitted using software that

:08:41.:08:42.

would cheat emissions tests, leading to a recall

:08:43.:08:44.

of millions of cars worldwide. A compensation scheme was approved

:08:45.:08:47.

in the United States last year, and lawyers want British customers

:08:48.:08:50.

to be offered a similar settlement. Thousands of police officers

:08:51.:08:59.

in London are to be asked if they want to be routinely armed

:09:00.:09:02.

with a gun or Taser. A survey by the Metropolitan Police

:09:03.:09:05.

Federation will consult its members A spokesman for the force said

:09:06.:09:08.

the number of officers carrying Tasers has increased twice in recent

:09:09.:09:12.

years and that its weapons policy More than 20 people have died

:09:13.:09:15.

as a result of freezing temperatures across much of central

:09:16.:09:30.

and eastern Europe. The cold weather has caused major

:09:31.:09:32.

disruption to utility and transport networks while snow has been

:09:33.:09:35.

recorded as far south We will have more on that later on.

:09:36.:09:53.

Yes, snow on the beaches. Amazing. Not the ideal holiday destination.

:09:54.:09:58.

It was a big night for the British television spy drama

:09:59.:10:01.

The Night Manager, which stormed to success at the 74th Golden Globe

:10:02.:10:05.

Tom Hiddleston, Olivia Colman and Hugh Laurie all collected prizes

:10:06.:10:08.

Claire Foy was named best actress in a TV drama as the Queen

:10:09.:10:12.

The night belonged to the Hollywood musical La La Land, which took home

:10:13.:10:17.

Our Los Angeles correspondent James Cook reports.

:10:18.:10:20.

Los Angeles, California, where stories are spun and stars

:10:21.:10:22.

are born, a place of glitz and glamour, of gowns and gossip,

:10:23.:10:25.

This is a film for dreamers, and I think that hope and creativity

:10:26.:10:43.

are two of the most important things in the world,

:10:44.:10:46.

In the television categories, it was a British invasion.

:10:47.:10:51.

Claire Foy was named Best Actress in a TV Drama for playing the Queen

:10:52.:10:59.

in the Crown, while there were three acting awards in the BBC production

:11:00.:11:03.

the Night Manager, allowing Hugh Laurie to have a go at Donald

:11:04.:11:06.

More amazing to be able say I won the last ever Golden Globes.

:11:07.:11:13.

I don't mean to be gloomy, it's just that it has the word

:11:14.:11:18.

Hollywood, foreign and press in the title, I just

:11:19.:11:21.

Receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award, Meryl Streep also lambasted

:11:22.:11:24.

the President-elect and his plan to deport millions of immigrants.

:11:25.:11:27.

So, Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners,

:11:28.:11:29.

and if we keep them all out you'll have nothing to watch but football

:11:30.:11:33.

and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts.

:11:34.:11:35.

Well, Hollywood can be fun and frivolous, but it also prides

:11:36.:11:38.

And many stars here on the red carpet are predicting a surge

:11:39.:11:43.

in political films this year following the most

:11:44.:11:45.

And we'll speak to the creative minds behind the success

:11:46.:12:03.

That is your favourite TV series, isn't it? I absolutely loved it. I

:12:04.:12:13.

think there is another one. We will ask.

:12:14.:12:13.

Widespread disruption is expected in central London during this

:12:14.:12:16.

morning's rush hour because of a 24 hour tube strike that started

:12:17.:12:19.

Staff have walked out in a row over ticket office closures,

:12:20.:12:23.

John Leach is the President of the RMT Union.

:12:24.:12:27.

Thank you for joining us. If you could just give us a picture of this

:12:28.:12:42.

morning. Are their trains running at all? Basically most of the London

:12:43.:12:48.

Underground has been closed this morning as a consequence of this

:12:49.:12:53.

strike. Just a slight correction. I am the RMT regional organiser, not

:12:54.:12:57.

the President. This strike has been called today because we are dealing

:12:58.:13:02.

with a hugely important safety issue across the London Underground

:13:03.:13:06.

involving the removal of 834 frontline uniformed staff and the

:13:07.:13:12.

closure of a number of station control rooms. Your introductory

:13:13.:13:16.

report was inaccurate on that. This has had a devastating impact on the

:13:17.:13:21.

safe running an operation of the London Underground on a daily basis

:13:22.:13:25.

and commuters will be aware of this. Everyday stations are closing, short

:13:26.:13:29.

staffing is a problem and it has impacted my members. The staff who

:13:30.:13:35.

are working there. OK, Steve Griffith, chief operating officer,

:13:36.:13:39.

says, you know this, there is no need to strike, we always intended

:13:40.:13:44.

to review staffing levels and had discussions with the unions. We

:13:45.:13:48.

agree we need more staff in the stations and have started to recruit

:13:49.:13:54.

200 extra staff, so work has already started, so why strike? They just

:13:55.:14:01.

don't get it. The problem is, this is like putting a Band-Aid on a

:14:02.:14:05.

gaping wound. I am not making it as some kind of cheap shot. The London

:14:06.:14:08.

Underground carries 4 million people every day. These passengers are

:14:09.:14:15.

entitled to a safe underground. 200 jobs by next summer is inadequate.

:14:16.:14:21.

We have a crisis here. And it is an emergency that needs attending to.

:14:22.:14:24.

That is a woeful response. It isn't good enough. Thousands of tube staff

:14:25.:14:30.

are under immense pressure to deliver this service every day. They

:14:31.:14:35.

walk out, we will be back tomorrow and we can get around the table.

:14:36.:14:41.

This is a safety issue, safety strike and it is about a safety

:14:42.:14:46.

issue. They are entitled to travel as well. There will be thousands of

:14:47.:14:50.

people affected by the strike. Do you have sympathy with them and will

:14:51.:14:54.

you try to get back to talking for them? Absolutely. They are the heart

:14:55.:15:00.

of this dispute. The running of the safe underground. You need staff to

:15:01.:15:06.

run a railway. It is the oldest part of running railways. You have to

:15:07.:15:11.

have people in place to have a safe system. It cannot be self-service.

:15:12.:15:16.

They need to put back in a task force response to putting this say.

:15:17.:15:21.

And of course we have sympathy with the travelling public and we regret

:15:22.:15:25.

the strike. We have been in weeks of talks but we are up against a brick

:15:26.:15:31.

wall. Let's talk about timing. We know there are strikes planned later

:15:32.:15:36.

on this week. Just a question about timing, why do it now, why in a week

:15:37.:15:42.

when you know commuters will be badly affected? The timing for the

:15:43.:15:47.

strike, the announcement of it, was before Christmas, that was sometime

:15:48.:15:51.

ago, and the reason we did that, we give time between now and when we

:15:52.:15:57.

have the ballot result. It was to enable everyone to get around the

:15:58.:16:02.

table. Weeks, if need be, that was the reason for the timing, nothing

:16:03.:16:06.

else. This next part of the story must be that we get back around the

:16:07.:16:10.

table and the tube management, who privately agree with us on safety,

:16:11.:16:14.

are empowered and resourced to make the London Underground safe. What

:16:15.:16:19.

are you suggesting, more staff, presumably costing more money, which

:16:20.:16:25.

means a rise in ticket prices, so what kind of rise would you think is

:16:26.:16:30.

acceptable? I don't think it should result in a rising ticket prices,

:16:31.:16:34.

they are high and. The resources need be realised by the Mayor and

:16:35.:16:39.

the powers that be. The passengers shouldn't have to suffer this. They

:16:40.:16:43.

are at the heart of this dispute. Their safety is a major concern.

:16:44.:16:49.

That is not a solution we would want to see at all. Thank you for your

:16:50.:16:55.

time this morning. And I should of course correct myself that he is not

:16:56.:16:56.

the President. Correct, yes. You're watching

:16:57.:16:59.

Breakfast from BBC News. Theresa May will use a major speech

:17:00.:17:01.

today to encourage schools and employers to do more to help

:17:02.:17:05.

those with mental health problems. Up to four million commuters face

:17:06.:17:09.

significant disruption this morning because of a strike

:17:10.:17:11.

across the entire London Underground network over jobs and

:17:12.:17:14.

ticket office closures. Let's get some weather with Carol.

:17:15.:17:35.

It is looking a little grim out there, Carol. Murk sums it up

:17:36.:17:42.

beautifully. It is a murky start and a wet start for some. A lot of cloud

:17:43.:17:49.

around and rain spreading across parts of Scotland and Northern

:17:50.:17:53.

Ireland. That is courtesy of this weather front continuing its journey

:17:54.:17:58.

moving south-east at. Behind it you can see that it will be windy in the

:17:59.:18:03.

north-west. A little rain already this morning coming in from Scotland

:18:04.:18:08.

and Northern Ireland heading into the west of England and Wales. Watch

:18:09.:18:13.

out for surface water and spray on the road. Behind that, showers. The

:18:14.:18:23.

same full Ireland. They will return to showers and brighter skies. Down

:18:24.:18:30.

into the south-west, the rain. Low cloud ahead of it with dampness in

:18:31.:18:35.

the air. Brightness across Southern counties but it will not last

:18:36.:18:39.

because here is the weather front heading south-east was as we go

:18:40.:18:47.

through the day. Behind each we see a return to bright skies, sunshine,

:18:48.:18:54.

showers coming in wintry above 500 metres in the hills in Scotland and

:18:55.:19:01.

increasing wind strength. 65 MPh. The rain will clear Kent in the

:19:02.:19:09.

evening with clear skies behind it. Here we could see a touch of frost

:19:10.:19:14.

but showers gathering in from the west. Some merging for lovely spells

:19:15.:19:19.

of rain. Very slowly what you will find is you see the wind start to

:19:20.:19:26.

ease in the north-west. Through tomorrow, still a blustery day.

:19:27.:19:30.

Where there is frost we will begin with clear skies so some sunshine

:19:31.:19:34.

but out towards the west another weather front will introduce more

:19:35.:19:38.

cloud and rain and that band is moving from west to east through the

:19:39.:19:43.

day. Again brighter skies behind it. Still mild in the south Hull as we

:19:44.:19:49.

push south with the colder conditions come in. A lot of dry

:19:50.:19:57.

weather around for Wednesday. With colder coming in again across the

:19:58.:20:01.

north the showers will increasingly turn in the north and west and it

:20:02.:20:08.

will feel cold. Temperature is in Edinburgh five degrees Celsius. As

:20:09.:20:11.

we push towards the south it turns into eight and nine. Then the cold

:20:12.:20:16.

blast coming from the Arctic. What that will do by the end of the week

:20:17.:20:21.

is introduce some snow. At the moment we think, and it could

:20:22.:20:25.

is introduce some snow. At the change, that will be across north

:20:26.:20:28.

Scotland, north-west England, Wales and the Moors in the south-west. A

:20:29.:20:34.

huge dash of doubt with that because it could change through the course

:20:35.:20:39.

of the week. Thank you very much, Carol and we will see you later. And

:20:40.:20:45.

Arctic blast later in the week. Prepare yourself.

:20:46.:20:46.

Last July, on the day Theresa May became Prime Minister she addressed

:20:47.:20:50.

the problem of mental health provision, pledging to make sure

:20:51.:20:52.

there was more help for those in need.

:20:53.:20:54.

Today, she intends to make good on that promise by announcing a set

:20:55.:20:58.

of reforms she says will "transform" those services.

:20:59.:21:00.

Labour's Shadow Health Secretary Jon Ashworth joins us

:21:01.:21:02.

Good morning to you and thank you for your time this morning. When you

:21:03.:21:11.

look at some of the measures she will announce today, support for

:21:12.:21:17.

schools, a partnership with employer, alternatives to hospital

:21:18.:21:20.

care, it is hard for you to argue that any of those do not need to be

:21:21.:21:24.

changed. Are they not good measures? Yes. That is why we announced that

:21:25.:21:29.

they would be our policies a few months ago. Yes, we welcome but what

:21:30.:21:35.

I would say it is good that Theresa May has woken up to the crisis but

:21:36.:21:42.

her government has presided over a situation where we have 6000 plus

:21:43.:21:47.

fewer nurses working in mental health, fewer mental health beds and

:21:48.:21:52.

in deed, budgets have been raided in this country and the money shifted

:21:53.:21:57.

to trying to fill gaps in the wider NHS. So, yes. We welcome the

:21:58.:22:01.

initiative. We have been calling for them. The reality is that mental

:22:02.:22:06.

health provision in this country has been severely cut back over the last

:22:07.:22:10.

six years. Is it a question of funding then? How much it would

:22:11.:22:16.

Labour spend on mental health and where does the money come from? What

:22:17.:22:22.

we say is that the NHS as a whole is going through the biggest financial

:22:23.:22:25.

squeeze in its history. By next year, money per head will be cut

:22:26.:22:32.

across the entire country for the NHS. Huge cuts to social care

:22:33.:22:37.

budgets as well and mental health provision has been cut back

:22:38.:22:41.

severely. That is why we are now seeing a big crisis facing the NHS

:22:42.:22:45.

this winter. I as to where the money would come from. Where you would

:22:46.:22:53.

spend it. A priority we have made is that the reason the NHS is in a

:22:54.:22:57.

crisis this winter is because of cuts to social care. For example,

:22:58.:23:03.

pounds that will come in, we are asking the government to put that

:23:04.:23:07.

into social care today. On mental health provision more generally,

:23:08.:23:10.

when we get closer to the next general election we will come

:23:11.:23:13.

forward with our balance for mental health provision. What we shouldn't

:23:14.:23:18.

forward with our balance for mental have is what we currently have at

:23:19.:23:22.

the moment, children's mental health budgets being cut and that money

:23:23.:23:25.

being allocated to the wider NHS because of the wider underfunding in

:23:26.:23:32.

the NHS. That is not acceptable. It is a disgrace and is Theresa May

:23:33.:23:36.

wants to shine a light on mental health provision in this country she

:23:37.:23:41.

should shine a light on her own budget decisions and ask the

:23:42.:23:44.

Chancellor to bring forward money so that these budgets do not have to be

:23:45.:23:52.

cut. The money is a massive issue across the NHS, not just in mental

:23:53.:23:56.

health. Do you feel that these issues and changing money, putting

:23:57.:24:00.

some he ran some but, essentially all you can do is move cutlery

:24:01.:24:04.

around a broken table. There are fundamental issues with the health

:24:05.:24:10.

service. One big issue is that we have an ageing population who live

:24:11.:24:15.

longer. As we live longer we have more complex needs. That is a good

:24:16.:24:20.

thing but it means you have to put the money into community health and

:24:21.:24:24.

social care to deal and support elderly and vulnerable people. The

:24:25.:24:28.

government have cut back social care sector by 4.5 billion which is why

:24:29.:24:34.

we have a situation today in the NHS where increasing numbers of very

:24:35.:24:38.

elderly and vulnerable people are trapped in hospital with nowhere

:24:39.:24:42.

suitable for them to go in the wider community. That is why we see these

:24:43.:24:46.

huge pressures now. It is why we see people on trolleys for over 24 hours

in hospital corridors. It is why we see ambulances backed up. It is why

:24:54.:24:58.

we see accident and emergency is turning people away. It is why we

:24:59.:25:03.

see several hospitals say that they cannot provide comprehensive care.

:25:04.:25:07.

Unless you deal with the social care crisis in this country, you will not

:25:08.:25:11.

deal with the wider pressure on the NHS. We will put some of those

:25:12.:25:15.

points to Jeremy Hunt in the next half-hour or so. And for people

:25:16.:25:19.

watching this morning who agree that the NHS is in trouble. If you were

:25:20.:25:24.

in power tomorrow, what is one concrete plan you have to make a

:25:25.:25:31.

change? We would not go ahead with a corporation tax cut. We would stop

:25:32.:25:35.

that tax cut and we would reallocate some of that money to the pagers so

:25:36.:25:39.

there would be an immediate cash injection which will relieve some of

:25:40.:25:43.

these pressures. Thank you for your time. We will speak to Jeremy Hunt

:25:44.:25:52.

later on this morning. 25 past seven at the moment. You watching

:25:53.:25:55.

Breakfast and still to come this morning...

:25:56.:25:58.

What should happen to your pet if you go into a care home?

:25:59.:26:01.

We'll speak to the charity calling for a clear policy on older people

:26:02.:26:05.

taking their dogs and cats with them.

:26:06.:26:07.

Many of you getting in touch about that. We will speak about that

:26:08.:26:12.

little bit later. Right now let us get news travel and weather from

:26:13.:26:16.

A report out today says we could get more low-carbon power for less money

:26:17.:26:23.

by devolving control over Scottish customers' electricity bills.

:26:24.:26:26.

All UK consumers are set to pay for the government's new nuclear

:26:27.:26:29.

But the study for the Scottish Greens by Aberdeen University

:26:30.:26:35.

suggests Scots could fund almost twice as much power from onshore

:26:36.:26:38.

To achieve this, the Scottish Greens are calling for control over energy

:26:39.:26:44.

Scotland's police watchdog is to examine the way

:26:45.:26:49.

The exercise comes ahead of the proposed transfer

:26:50.:26:54.

Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabularies in Scotland

:26:55.:26:58.

will conduct the study with its English and

They'll be looking at various aspects of operation within

:27:01.:27:06.

the force which is responsible for policing the UK's railways.

:27:07.:27:10.

They'll also examine how BTP in Scotland can be integrated

:27:11.:27:12.

into the main force and how it would deal with

Technology entrepreneur Peter Jones is backing Connect-In.

:27:38.:27:38.

It's developed a wireless tracking sensor that helps

find misplaced items, such as keys and phones.

:27:41.:27:42.

The firm was started by Strathclyde University graduates,

:27:43.:27:43.

Breakfast time weather now and it's over to Judith with the outlook

:27:44.:27:49.

An interesting busy week of whether. It's turning progressively colder

:27:50.:27:59.

and wintry. This morning, it's mild with a band of rain sweeping across

:28:00.:28:03.

the country as we speak. It will clear away, it brightens up, spells

:28:04.:28:08.

of sunshine for Southern and eastern Scotland in particular. We will see

:28:09.:28:15.

showers pushing across western Scotland. Very few getting to the

:28:16.:28:18.

Easter during daylight hours. The winds pick up against across the

:28:19.:28:23.

Northwest with gales developing. After a mild start, temperatures

:28:24.:28:27.

fall to around about 7-8. As we head into the evening, the showers

:28:28.:28:32.

becoming more heavy across western Scotland. Spreading across the

:28:33.:28:35.

country through the evening but then they will ease overnight. Gales

:28:36.:28:39.

across the North touching severe gale force for a time and they will

start to ease during the overnight period and temperatures eventually

:28:46.:28:48.

settling at 3-4. That is your forecast.

:28:49.:28:49.

There's a wind warning for a few of the bridges this morning -

:28:50.:28:53.

the Kessock Bridge, Erskine and Forth Road Bridges.

:28:54.:28:55.

There's also a speed restriction on the Tay Road Bridge

:28:56.:28:57.

In Lanarkshire, there's slow traffic on the M74 northbound

:28:58.:29:01.

between Hamilton and the Raith Interchange.

:29:02.:29:03.

In the Blairlogie area of Stirling, the northbound A91 is closed

:29:04.:29:05.

at Manor Powis roundabout because of an accident.

:29:06.:29:09.

On the ferries, CalMac has cancelled its Barra

:29:10.:29:11.

and South Uist services because of forecasted high winds.

:29:12.:29:14.

There are warnings for a few others so do check ahead.

In her first major speech on health since becoming Prime Minister,

:29:55.:29:58.

Mrs May will announce a review of services for children

Boris Johnson has held talks with some of Donald Trump's key

:30:14.:30:16.

The Foreign Secretary has become the first British minister to hold

:30:17.:30:21.

face-to-face meetings with members of the President-elect's incoming

The exchanges were described by officials as positive but frank.

:30:24.:30:39.

Up to 4 million commuters face significant disruption this morning

:30:40.:30:42.

because of a strike. Workers from the RMT

:30:43.:30:43.

and the Transport Salaried Staffs' Assocition are walking out for 24

:30:44.:30:45.

hours in a dispute over job losses The strike is due to finish at 6pm

:30:46.:30:49.

tonight. Thousands of British drivers

:30:50.:30:54.

affected by the Volkswagen diesel emissions scandal are taking legal

:30:55.:30:57.

action against the carmaker. VW admitted using software that

:30:58.:30:59.

would cheat emissions tests, leading to a recall

:31:00.:31:02.

of millions of cars worldwide. A compensation scheme was approved

:31:03.:31:04.

in the United States last year, and lawyers want British customers

:31:05.:31:07.

to be offered a similar settlement. Police in Tyne and Wear have

:31:08.:31:13.

arrested a man suspected of taking hostages at a bookmakers

been held in the incident, with three being released before

:31:25.:31:28.

police ended the standoff and a 39-year-old man

:31:29.:31:31.

was taken into custody. It was a big night for the British

feisty. League Two Plymouth Argyle have

:33:19.:33:18.

earned a replay with Liverpool in the third round of the FA Cup

:33:19.:33:21.

after a goalless draw at Anfield. It was the youngest starting line-up

experience for the boys. Obviously they want another

:34:03.:34:04.

game, they deserved it. And now we will go there

:34:05.:34:08.

and try to do that. Premier League leaders Chelsea

:34:09.:34:14.

had no such problems against League One

:34:15.:34:16.

Peterborough United. Chelsea registered 35 shots on goal

they ground out at 2-0 win. Ben Davies scoring his

and reach the second round. There was no dividing the pair

literally giving back to their club. Morecambe manager Jim Bentley

little dog means to me. The owners of the

:37:39.:38:00.

retirement village did not wish to be interviewed

:38:01.:38:11.

but they said they made a difficult decision because the dog

:38:12.:38:14.

had barked and run and visitors, had fouled in hallways

:38:15.:38:16.

and was sometimes left unsupervised. They said they bought in a social

routine, so the change is huge. Talk us through the discussion you had a

:40:19.:40:23.

bout allowing pets into care homes? The first thing to say it is it is

:40:24.:40:27.

important care home providers have a pet friendly policy. Because we have

:40:28.:40:35.

a pet friendly policy in place, that discussion would usually look at

:40:36.:40:37.

different things. So, the first discussion would usually look at

:40:38.:40:44.

different things. So, the first one would be the characteristics and

:40:45.:40:49.

behaviours of the pet. So, how does the pet behave? And the second would

:40:50.:40:58.

be looking at potential for infections. So, are they immunised,

:40:59.:41:03.

well groomed, looked after? The third is, does it have the potential

:41:04.:41:11.

for impact on anyone else in the home's so, for example, if someone

:41:12.:41:17.

has an allergy or a fear of attack. If someone is going to one of your

:41:18.:41:22.

care homes, it is not a given they will be allowed in? I think that is

:41:23.:41:31.

why it is important to have clear policy guidelines in place. It is

:41:32.:41:37.

important to make the right decision each time. It is really important to

:41:38.:41:47.

write to these people to explain why we would go and accept or reject a

:41:48.:41:52.

pet in a home. A pet for one person is a friend for life and for others

:41:53.:41:56.

it would be a real nuisance. We understand that and we know that not

:41:57.:42:00.

all pets would be suitable, that is why we want a pet policy introduced

:42:01.:42:05.

so everyone knows the responsibility. What are the options

:42:06.:42:10.

for those who cannot take their pets into the care home? The charity Blue

:42:11.:42:15.

Cross has a couple of options, pets into care scheme, free to register,

:42:16.:42:19.

but you need to register before going into care. If the pet outlives

:42:20.:42:27.

you, we can free -- free home it. Looking at the numbers, there are

:42:28.:42:32.

big numbers of pets having to be rehomed. Yes. As a charity we have

:42:33.:42:37.

found that with the ageing population there is an increase in

:42:38.:42:41.

the call line from distressed people and other lines about the need to

:42:42.:42:45.

take pets into care. In your care homes, where are the pets, are they

:42:46.:42:50.

running free, what are they doing? It is a case-by-case basis. In some

:42:51.:42:54.

cases where appropriate they are kept in rooms. Advanced planning is

:42:55.:43:01.

put in place to make decisions about where they can go. More often than

:43:02.:43:06.

not it is -- there are good examples where pets become part of the whole

:43:07.:43:10.

home. They are widely accepted by everyone and everyone sees the

:43:11.:43:13.

benefit of the pet. They are allowed into the lounge areas. Going back to

:43:14.:43:21.

making sure that prior to admission, robust plans are made and that we

:43:22.:43:26.

consider the needs of the other residents as well. And the wishes of

:43:27.:43:28.

the other residents and the decisions made. Looking at the

:43:29.:43:32.

comments we have been getting today, there have been loads, one says,

:43:33.:43:34.

each case has to be considered on there have been loads, one says,

:43:35.:43:38.

the merit, I would never leave mine behind. Ken says, no, they shouldn't

:43:39.:43:42.

be allowed, most cannot look after them, leaving the staff to look

:43:43.:43:46.

after them. This could be a difficult subject to approach will

:43:47.:43:50.

stop some pets don't take to living in a home with other people and

:43:51.:43:54.

become territorial. And some of those things are very true and that

:43:55.:43:58.

is why we have a pet policy. The responsibility is on people to look

:43:59.:44:03.

after the pets, walk them, and if the person is ill, a member of

:44:04.:44:06.

family can take care, that registration, lots of things. We

:44:07.:44:11.

work with Blue Cross and RSPCA and various other charities and we take

:44:12.:44:16.

advice from them when we have these situations. Of course they will at

:44:17.:44:21.

times be troubled with settling new environments. I think it is being

:44:22.:44:27.

aware of that. What is the most interesting? We have ducks,

:44:28.:44:33.

chickens, we have a parrot in one home, yes. So, we have a huge

:44:34.:44:41.

variety. Absolutely. Oh, OK. There you go. It was good to talk to you.

:44:42.:44:50.

It is coming up to 7:45am. Theresa May will use a major speech to

commuters face significant disruption this morning because of a

strike across the entire London Underground network over jobs and

:45:03.:45:04.

the closure of some ticket offices. There is a lot going on with the

:45:05.:45:13.

weather but luckily Carol can tell is all about it. Good morning to you

:45:14.:45:18.

both. If it is not raining where you are neither has rained or it is

:45:19.:45:22.

going to rain. There is a band of rain heading south eastwards. That

:45:23.:45:26.

will cross the whole of the UK. That is courtesy of this weather front

:45:27.:45:31.

that is crossing Scotland. It is getting in across northern England

:45:32.:45:34.

and also west Wales and the south-west. It is accompanied by

:45:35.:45:40.

dusting winds. You can see what we have already had. If you are

:45:41.:45:44.

travelling, watch out for XS surface water. As we go through the rest of

:45:45.:45:48.

the morning this will continue to sink, lifting the low cloud that we

:45:49.:45:52.

currently have. We will see transient rain is in the south-east

:45:53.:45:56.

big we have all this rain coming our way. Bright skies behind it but

:45:57.:46:03.

still some showers. A special across parts of Scotland and Northern

:46:04.:46:07.

Ireland. We are also looking at strengthening winds across the

:46:08.:46:12.

north-west touching gales forth with -- touching dour force with

the rain continuing to push down towards the south-east leaving a

:46:23.:46:26.

legacy of cloud in its wake. Generally speaking, for most it will

:46:27.:46:30.

be a mild day but cold air feeding in. That will clear by teatime

:46:31.:46:35.

allowing some clear spells to develop. Here tonight there could be

:46:36.:46:40.

a touch of frost and we will see a lot of showers, some of them merging

:46:41.:46:43.

and coming in across the north-west. By then the strongest winds will

tomorrow. Another blustery day we showers. In the east where we have

the frost we also have clear skies first thing so we look at some

:46:56.:46:59.

sunshine. But another weather front coming in from the west will

:47:00.:47:03.

introduce some rain as it pushes from the west towards the east. The

cloud building ahead of that rain and an arena will rise. Behind it

bright skies with sunshine and a few showers. For most of us are still it

is mild but especially in the south. Temperatures are starting to change

:47:17.:47:20.

across the far north. That will happen even more so on Wednesday.

:47:21.:47:23.

Again we have some showers and some will be wintry across the northern

:47:24.:47:27.

western Scotland. For most of the UK it will be a dry day. Some sunshine,

:47:28.:47:32.

a little bit of cloud at times and it will also be breezy. Looking at

:47:46.:47:52.

away by colder blues seeping all the way across the UK. It is going to

:47:53.:47:59.

turn much colder. And for those of you asking if we will see snow, the

:48:00.:48:03.

answer is yes. Possibly later on Thursday in the north stopped during

:48:04.:48:09.

the course of Friday and Saturday further south. Not everyone will see

:48:10.:48:12.

it, by any stretch but we think at the moment and this could change,

:48:13.:48:18.

the most likely areas will be the north and west. North-west England,

:48:19.:48:23.

north Scotland, north-west Wales and the moors in the south-west. So

:48:24.:48:27.

watch this space. What is interesting about our possible snow.

:48:28.:48:34.

If it is not connected to what is going on in southern Europe, is it?

:48:35.:48:38.

That is right. Temperatures of this morning in Moscow are -30 and in

:48:39.:48:42.

Athens, minus three. That is 10- 15 degrees lower than it should be this

down from the east. I will tell you more about later on in the

:48:51.:48:52.

programme. A lot of Golden Globes talk from

:48:53.:48:59.

last night. One of those desperate moments were you cannot get the

:49:00.:49:02.

winners because you don't know who they are when you go to print. The

:49:03.:49:06.

front page of the Telegraph as Meryl Streep who received a lifetime

:49:07.:49:11.

achievement award. She had a bit of a poke at Donald Trump as well. She

:49:12.:49:14.

has more Oscar nominations than any other actress. On the Guardian,

:49:15.:49:20.

their main story is about Boris Johnson and this flight to New York

well. This 30 years... They all won Best actors, best supporting back

to. A fantastic night. Later on we will speak to the executive producer

:49:46.:49:51.

of the programme. I know it is your favourite programme of the year. I

:49:52.:49:55.

want to know if there is going to be a second series. I just hope areas.

:49:56.:50:01.

We will can clear that up later. And the Queen is on the front page of

:50:02.:50:05.

many papers as well. A front page of the Times newspaper getting better.

:50:06.:50:09.

The Queen ventured out in the public are the first time in a month a

:50:10.:50:14.

heavy cold kept indoors. There is one little story on the inside pages

:50:15.:50:18.

here. I would like to mention it. A little golfing gadget that has been

:50:19.:50:25.

made. Patterns in all areas. For years we have known about brainwaves

:50:26.:50:28.

and things that can disrupt the way of thinking and the smoothness and

:50:29.:50:34.

calmness. Scientists have tested a number of golfers and what they have

:50:35.:50:39.

done is put a programme ahead that plays a bass tone when you are

:50:40.:50:48.

concerned about taking a putt and/or putt improves by 42%. Isn't there? A

big night for the night manager, storming to success at the Golden

portrayal of the Queen In off The Crown. Our correspondent reports.

:51:13.:51:20.

Los Angeles, California, where stories are spun and stars

:51:21.:51:22.

are born, a place of glitz and glamour, of gowns and gossip,

:51:23.:51:26.

This is a film for dreamers, and I think that hope and creativity

:51:27.:51:37.

are two of the most important things in the world,

:51:38.:51:41.

In the television categories, it was a British invasion.

:51:42.:51:47.

Claire Foy was named Best Actress in a TV Drama for playing the Queen

in the Crown, while there were three acting awards in the BBC production

The Night Manager, allowing Hugh Laurie to have a dig at Donald

:51:56.:51:58.

More amazing to be able say I won this at the last ever Golden Globes.

:51:59.:52:03.

I don't mean to be gloomy, it's just that it has the word

:52:04.:52:06.

Hollywood, foreign and press in the title, I just

:52:07.:52:08.

Receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award, Meryl Streep also lambasted

:52:09.:52:12.

the President-elect and his plan to deport millions of immigrants.

:52:13.:52:17.

So, Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners,

:52:18.:52:20.

and if we keep them all out you'll have nothing to watch but football

:52:21.:52:24.

and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts.

:52:25.:52:30.

Well, Hollywood can be fun and frivolous, but it also prides

:52:31.:52:33.

And many stars here on the red carpet are predicting a surge

:52:34.:52:42.

in political films this year following the most

:52:43.:52:44.

The good news is we will be talking about that little later. We have not

:52:45.:53:00.

yet had a call from Hugh Laurie, we were hoping to hear from him. You

:53:01.:53:05.

were desperate, won't you? We will be speaking to Jeremy Hunt shortly.

:53:06.:53:10.

Earlier we were discussing the high price of working in an office. You

:53:11.:53:17.

know the whip around, getting tea or cake. Christmas presents, alcohol.

:53:18.:53:21.

Over your working life time it is likely that a typical worker can

:53:22.:53:26.

expect to spend ?40,000 to purchase all those extra things. But,

:53:27.:53:35.

December is the coolest months. December costs the average employee

:53:36.:53:43.

?96. And this is what amazes us. ?42 goes to secret Santa. Not in our

:53:44.:53:49.

office. We only say it because we set a limit, don't we? That is the

:53:50.:53:56.

whole point. You would spend that on a family member. It is an awful lot

:53:57.:54:02.

of muggy. Talking cash, would you ever ask for a discount? I think you

:54:03.:54:11.

would. A survey suggests that nearly two thirds of us who tried to get a

:54:12.:54:19.

bargain have managed it. Do you try? I tried. But when they go silent I

:54:20.:54:23.

get worried. We have been asking customers where they have tried

:54:24.:54:27.

haggling and, most importantly, work for them? A furniture store. Buying

:54:28.:54:36.

a car. Anywhere like that, yeah. Recently I have. I got ?100 from

:54:37.:54:43.

haggling. Most prices are fixed. You wouldn't haggle with them. I don't

:54:44.:54:52.

try and department stores but places like this. I have had good here and

:54:53.:54:59.

it has paid off. Maybe with a carbon would not hear. It is all home made.

:55:00.:55:03.

I feel like that would be taking their muggy a little bit. I think I

:55:04.:55:08.

would have to be feeling quite brave. Other than that, probably

:55:09.:55:16.

not, no. I've tried for a bargain. The best haggle I have ever had...

:55:17.:55:24.

Coconuts. Coconuts. I got comprised half down. I took 12 coconuts home

:55:25.:55:34.

to my family. So, yeah. Halfprice coconuts. ?800 off a car. So, would

:55:35.:55:42.

you ask? I might. I might ask if there was any chance of a discount.

:55:43.:55:47.

Even in a high-street shop. Sometimes, you do get a discount. It

:55:48.:55:52.

is worth a try. Let us know. Are you a haggle as to not e-mail us at our

:01:46.:01:47.

So Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners.

:01:48.:01:51.

And if we kick them all out, you'll have

:01:52.:01:53.

nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which are not

Good morning, later this week some of us will see snow but today across

:02:22.:02:28.

England and Wales it is a cloudy and murky start with rain in the north

:02:29.:02:34.

and west crossing all areas. In Scotland and Northern Ireland we

have the rain moving away leaving a mixture of sunshine and showers that

:02:42.:02:42.

minutes. Good morning. In her first major speech on health,

:02:43.:03:00.

Theresa May will announce a review of services for children and

:03:01.:03:04.

teenagers as well as extra support for schools and businesses.

:03:05.:03:07.

Neighbours say people are let down by lack of funding. Our

:03:08.:03:10.

correspondent reports. Shock is not the word, your whole

:03:11.:03:27.

reality is blown to pieces. In 2014, this 20-year-old took his life.

:03:28.:03:34.

He had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

:03:35.:03:35.

They don't discharge patients with adequate information.

:03:36.:03:39.

We were told to either go to A or your GP and that's the only way

:03:40.:03:44.

We had no direct access back to the special services.

:03:45.:03:48.

Today, the Prime Minister, Theresa May, is expected to announce

:03:49.:03:52.

plans to reduce the waiting times for patients needing

:03:53.:03:54.

The details also include more help from employers

:03:55.:04:01.

when staff need time off work, and schools will also be expected

:04:02.:04:05.

to play a bigger role in identifying mentally vulnerable pupils.

:04:06.:04:08.

Mental health is still very underfunded compared

:04:09.:04:14.

It generates probably 20%-25% of the total disease burden

:04:15.:04:22.

of all diseases and yet the funding is 10%-12% in this country.

:04:23.:04:26.

Sangeeta says talking about her son's life is so important

:04:27.:04:34.

but today she wants the government to take action that will lead

:04:35.:04:38.

We can get more now from Chris Mason in Westminster. There is criticism

:04:39.:04:56.

and concern about the NHS voiced over the weekend, how significant is

:04:57.:05:01.

this speech? It is significant, because of the specifics the Prime

:05:02.:05:04.

Minister is talking around mental health but also the bigger picture.

:05:05.:05:09.

She will be aware of the headlines about the NHS and a suggestion from

:05:10.:05:14.

the Red Cross there is a humanitarian crisis. A claim

:05:15.:05:20.

repeated in an article by its chief executive in the Times this morning.

:05:21.:05:25.

Theresa May wants to paint on a broader canvas. She is aware there

:05:26.:05:30.

will be plenty of talk about Brexit in the coming months and she does

:05:31.:05:34.

not want the government talking of nothing else but Brexit, simply

:05:35.:05:40.

defined by that. Today we will get a sense of her philosophy for

:05:41.:05:45.

government. She will talk about the importance of the shared society and

:05:46.:05:49.

dealing with the burning injustices as she sees them that undermine

:05:50.:05:53.

society and she says mental health provision is one of those. Not just

:05:54.:05:59.

talking about Brexit today. Boris Johnson in the United States has met

Hunt shortly. He has been delayed, I think. In the next half an hour.

:06:24.:06:29.

Up to four million commuters in London face significant

:06:30.:06:31.

disruption this morning because of a strike across the entire

:06:32.:06:34.

Members of the RMT and TSSA unions walked out last

:06:35.:06:37.

night in a row about jobs and ticket office closures.

:06:38.:06:40.

The 24-hour strike is due to finish at six o'clock tonight.

:06:41.:06:49.

We have been speaking to commuters. It takes me 20 minutes but it has

:06:50.:06:57.

taken an hour and 15 already. The buses are mental, so I would rather

:06:58.:07:02.

walk. It is what it is. They have their cause. You work around it. A

:07:03.:07:08.

lot of people having to work around it.

Thousands of British drivers affected by the Volkswagen diesel

:07:11.:07:12.

emissions scandal are taking legal action against the carmaker.

:07:13.:07:14.

VW admitted using software that would cheat emissions tests,

:07:15.:07:17.

leading to a recall of millions of cars worldwide.

:07:18.:07:21.

A compensation scheme was approved in the United States last year,

:07:22.:07:24.

and lawyers want British customers to be offered a similar settlement.

:07:25.:07:29.

Thousands of police officers in London are to be asked

if they want to be routinely armed with a gun or Taser.

More than 20 people have died as a result of freezing temperatures

:08:16.:08:18.

across much of central and eastern Europe.

:08:19.:08:20.

The cold weather caused major disruption to utility and transport

:08:21.:08:23.

while snow has been recorded as far south as the Greek islands.

:08:24.:08:26.

Our Central Europe correspondent Nick Thorpe joins us from the banks

:08:27.:08:29.

Good morning. We can see the situation behind you with 20 of ice

:08:30.:08:41.

on the River Danube. How bad has it been? It has been very cold indeed,

:08:42.:08:50.

-28 registered in the north of Hungary, yesterday, the weather has

:08:51.:08:57.

grown milder this morning which means more snow is threatened in

:08:58.:09:02.

different parts, not only in Hungary but Romania, Bulgaria and the

:09:03.:09:07.

Balkans. Schools closed in Romania and Bulgaria today because of these

:09:08.:09:14.

extreme conditions. Thanks. You can see the ice flowing down the river.

:09:15.:09:20.

Extraordinary pictures. The weather will get colder here but nothing to

:09:21.:09:24.

do with the weather currently in Central Europe. We have an arctic

:09:25.:09:28.

blast coming south. You have been listening. I have been

:09:29.:09:33.

listening to Carol. It was a big night.

:09:34.:09:36.

It was a big night for the British television spy drama

:09:37.:09:38.

'The Night Manager' which stormed to success at the 74th

:09:39.:09:41.

Tom Hiddleston, Olivia Colman and Hugh Laurie all collected

:09:42.:09:45.

The night belonged to the Hollywood musical La La Land, which took home

:09:46.:09:51.

Claire Foy, star of Netflix's The Crown,

:09:52.:09:56.

We will be speaking to one of the people behind The Night Manager. I

:09:57.:10:10.

think the actors are probably celebrating still.

:10:11.:10:13.

Enjoying themselves, the official term. We will speak to them later.

:10:14.:10:19.

Commuters in the south of England face a difficult week ahead,

:10:20.:10:22.

there's the current 24-hour tube strike, which ends at six o'clock

:10:23.:10:25.

tonight, and then tomorrow drivers at Southern Rail are set to walk out

:10:26.:10:28.

Today's industrial action on the London Underground

:10:29.:10:31.

is because of a dispute over job losses and ticket office closures.

:10:32.:10:35.

Ben is at Piccadilly tube station for us this morning.

:10:36.:10:37.

The doors remaining closed. Good morning, these are very firmly

:10:38.:10:47.

closed with no one going anywhere fast in central London. The 24-hour

:10:48.:10:52.

walk-out well under way which began at 6pm last night and it means

:10:53.:10:57.

places like this in the heart of the West End theatre land, we are at

:10:58.:11:01.

Piccadilly Circus Tube station and you will recognise it from scenes

:11:02.:11:06.

like that. It means people cannot get around. 4000 staff walked out in

:11:07.:11:12.

around over the closure of ticket offices and where these staff will

:11:13.:11:17.

be placed in the stations. Are there enough staff to

:11:18.:11:19.

be placed in the stations. Are there enough staff to protect front line

:11:20.:11:22.

services? The union said not and they called the strike due to end at

:11:23.:11:29.

six o'clock but more pressure on the bus network and the roads. It is

:11:30.:11:32.

thought it could cost the economy up to ?50 million because people cannot

:11:33.:11:39.

get to work. And tourists cannot get around. Why are they on strike?

:11:40.:11:46.

Earlier we spoke to the RMT union. It cannot be a self-service

:11:47.:11:50.

underground, they need to put back in a task for response almost to put

:11:51.:11:55.

this safe and we have sympathy with the travelling public and regret the

:11:56.:11:59.

strike stop it had been avoidable, we were in weeks of talks put up

:12:00.:12:04.

against a brick wall. That is the view of the unions. What about the

:12:05.:12:09.

cost to London and the rest of the country? Colin is from the London

:12:10.:12:13.

chamber of commerce. We talk about putting a figure on strike action,

:12:14.:12:18.

it is difficult. What will it cost London and the UK? Tens of millions

:12:19.:12:25.

of pounds. It is difficult to know whether if you are coming on a

:12:26.:12:28.

shopping trip to London, when you come later in the week or not at all

:12:29.:12:32.

but what deal you might lose because you cannot get there. What is more

:12:33.:12:38.

important in some ways is the message it sends around the world.

:12:39.:12:43.

We are dealing with Brexit. London voted to stay in the EU and we are

:12:44.:12:48.

coming to terms of making a success of being out of the EU. We cannot

:12:49.:12:54.

have this message going around the world at this time that London

:12:55.:12:58.

somehow is closed, it is difficult to do business in London, or it is

:12:59.:13:03.

difficult as a tourist. London is the engine of the economy and the

:13:04.:13:09.

first destination for tourist visits going to Scotland, northern England,

:13:10.:13:13.

first destination for tourist visits Wales, wherever, so it is a big deal

:13:14.:13:17.

for London and Ms. To the week stop the unions say it is vital to

:13:18.:13:21.

protect the network and they want staff to be on trains and platforms

:13:22.:13:27.

to help passengers, be them tourist, shoppers and workers. Is there

:13:28.:13:30.

sympathy in the business community for the London Underground staff? We

:13:31.:13:37.

sympathy in the business community want to make the underground as safe

:13:38.:13:40.

as possible and London Underground said they will bring in more staff,

:13:41.:13:45.

they are recruiting 200 extra staff. There was a report by Travel Watch

:13:46.:13:51.

which talked about problems understaffing might be causing. They

:13:52.:13:55.

were not talking about safety but access to ticket machines. What we

:13:56.:14:02.

cannot do is penalise Londoners in the way we are penalising them at

:14:03.:14:07.

the moment. As the Mayor of London said, it is misery for Londoners and

:14:08.:14:12.

London business and the UK economy. You are used to talking to business

:14:13.:14:18.

and dealing with changing times, modernisation comes with challenges

:14:19.:14:22.

the business and London Underground is no exception. Fewer of us

:14:23.:14:27.

queueing at the ticket office, cards, is it an element of needing

:14:28.:14:32.

to change with the times and London Underground leads to improve its

:14:33.:14:39.

system? We need to change the. Many do not use a ticket machine any

:14:40.:14:42.

more. We need to see staff if we feel we are in danger or need help.

:14:43.:14:47.

I use the tube every day and at my station I feel safer because I can

:14:48.:14:51.

see the staff, they are not behind a glass window. My wife recently had a

:14:52.:14:57.

problem late at night with a fight she saw and could not find anybody

:14:58.:15:01.

to come out of their office to deal with that and she had to deal with

:15:02.:15:05.

it. Now there are people open to people coming up to them and saying,

:15:06.:15:11.

you have to do something about whatever is happening. That is the

:15:12.:15:16.

current situation. The strike due to end at 6pm today. It will be the

:15:17.:15:22.

roads and the trains and all the other support services on public

:15:23.:15:25.

transport that will bear the brunt until the system is up and running

:15:26.:15:29.

because it is not guaranteed the trains will be in the right places

:15:30.:15:32.

to suddenly begin again at six o'clock.

:15:33.:15:37.

You're watching Breakfast. The main stories this morning:

:15:38.:15:44.

Theresa May will use a major speech today to encourage schools

:15:45.:15:47.

and employers to do more to help those with mental health problems.

:15:48.:15:49.

Up to four million commuters face significant disruption this

:15:50.:15:53.

morning because of a strike across the entire London Underground

:15:54.:15:54.

I was told off earlier for trying to ticket office closures.

:15:55.:16:08.

I was told off earlier for trying to do amateurish weather forecasts.

:16:09.:16:13.

Told off? I got the impression that was not good enough. Thankfully we

:16:14.:16:17.

have got a professional in the house. Carol is here with a

:16:18.:16:24.

beautiful picture. This morning we have a murky start. There is a lot

:16:25.:16:28.

of low cloud and dampness around, but that will be replaced in the

:16:29.:16:31.

south by rain which is spreading south-east wards. It is courtesy of

:16:32.:16:35.

this weather front. Now, as it moves south-east wards, look at that

:16:36.:16:42.

squeeze on those isobars. Later on, it will be windy across the

:16:43.:16:44.

north-west with gusts up to gale force. A cloudy, damp start. A

:16:45.:16:47.

little bit of brightness, but that won't last because as this weather

:16:48.:16:50.

front approaches, the cloud will proceed it and the rain will move

:16:51.:16:55.

in. Behind it, the skies brighten and the sun comes out. However,

:16:56.:16:58.

there are still showers in the forecast especially across northern

:16:59.:17:00.

and Western Scotland, some rain coming in through the course of the

:17:01.:17:04.

afternoon and here is where we are likely to see gusts to gale force.

:17:05.:17:07.

For Northern Ireland, you have got a mixture of bright spells, sunshine

:17:08.:17:10.

and showers and it is the same across Northern England and North

:17:11.:17:12.

Wales, but there will be a lot of dry weather around and sunny skies.

:17:13.:17:16.

Now, as the rain pushes into the South East, it will leave a legacy

:17:17.:17:20.

of cloud, there goes the rain, but not the temperatures. Still mild. It

:17:21.:17:23.

is a mild start to the day. As we head on through the evening and

:17:24.:17:27.

overnight, there goes the rain. Clearing Kent around about tea-time.

:17:28.:17:32.

Some clear skies in central and eastern areas mean in sheltered

:17:33.:17:34.

parts there will be a touch of frost. Meanwhile the rain continues

:17:35.:17:39.

to come in across Scotland and Northern Ireland and parts of

:17:40.:17:41.

north-west England and showers across West Wales and the

:17:42.:17:44.

south-west. So that's how we start the day tomorrow. Where we've got

:17:45.:17:47.

the clear skies and the frost, we will start with sunshine. There will

:17:48.:17:52.

be a few showers dotted around, but it will brighten up before the next

:17:53.:17:56.

weather front comes in across from the west, crossing Northern Ireland,

:17:57.:18:02.

the cloud building ahead. The rain gets into the east. Behind it,

:18:03.:18:05.

brighter skies and some sunshine. gets into the east. Behind it,

:18:06.:18:09.

And then for Wednesday, well a drier day, a blustery day, some bright

:18:10.:18:13.

spells, just a few showers, and also some sunshine, but the showers

:18:14.:18:18.

turning wintry across the far north of the country and temperature wise,

:18:19.:18:22.

well, again, feeling cold. The temperatures coming down across the

:18:23.:18:25.

land. So as we head on through the latter part of the week, for us, we

:18:26.:18:31.

start to pull in northerly or north-westerly winds across our

:18:32.:18:33.

shores meaning it will turn colderment for some of us, we will

:18:34.:18:37.

see snow. At the moment we could see the snow almost anywhere. However,

:18:38.:18:41.

the most likely areas are going to be across parts of the north and the

:18:42.:18:46.

west of the UK. But I'll keep you posted as we go through this week.

:18:47.:18:49.

The conditions are nothing like they are in Europe. We have seen the

:18:50.:18:52.

pictures in the news. This morning, we are looking at temperatures minus

:18:53.:18:56.

30 Celsius to start the day in Moscow. As we come further south,

:18:57.:19:02.

minus three in Athens is minus three Celsius in Belgrade. We are looking

:19:03.:19:06.

almost tropical with our seven Celsius in London. The reason is we

:19:07.:19:13.

have got what would be a Siberian high aning orred across Siberia. The

:19:14.:19:20.

air around a high moves in a clockwise direction. It is moving

:19:21.:19:23.

around, sucking up the cold air and coming back down from the

:19:24.:19:26.

north-east, a different direction to us. There is a low pressure just out

:19:27.:19:31.

to the east here and the opposite happens with low pressure. The air

:19:32.:19:35.

moves in an anticlockwise direction so it is doing the same moving

:19:36.:19:39.

around and sucking in the cold air down towards the Mediterranean. I

:19:40.:19:42.

love it when the weather is like there, Dan and Lou. I probably

:19:43.:19:47.

shouldn't because it has adverse effects, but it is so exciting. You

:19:48.:19:51.

have made me shiver even though it is not with us yet.

:19:52.:20:02.

It was a big night for the British television spy drama

:20:03.:20:08.

The Night Manager which stormed to success at the 74th

:20:09.:20:11.

Tom Hiddleston, Olivia Colman and Hugh Laurie all collected

:20:12.:20:13.

Claire Foy was named best actress in a TV drama

:20:14.:20:17.

The night belonged to the Hollywood musical La La Land which took home

:20:18.:20:24.

Our Los Angeles Correspondent, James Cook reports.

:20:25.:20:28.

Los Angeles, California, where stories are spun and stars

:20:29.:20:33.

are born, a place of glitz and glamour, of gowns and gossip,

:20:34.:20:36.

There were seven Golden Globes for the film.

:20:37.:20:53.

This is a film for dreamers, and I think that hope and creativity

:20:54.:20:56.

are two of the most important things in the world, and that's

:20:57.:20:59.

In the television categories, it was a British invasion.

:21:00.:21:04.

Claire Foy was named Best Actress in a TV Drama for playing

:21:05.:21:09.

I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for some extraordinary women. I'm going

:21:10.:21:19.

to thank them. One of them is Queen Elizabeth II. She has been at the

:21:20.:21:23.

centre of the world for the past 63 years and I think the world could do

:21:24.:21:27.

with a few more women at the centre of it if you ask me!

:21:28.:21:35.

There were three acting awards in the BBC

:21:36.:21:40.

The Night Manager is about arms dealing.

:21:41.:21:56.

Hugh Laurie's arms were also digging.

:21:57.:22:07.

Receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award, Meryl Streep lambasted the

:22:08.:22:16.

president-elect. Violence insights violence. When the powerful lose

:22:17.:22:21.

their position to bully others, we all lose. Hollywood is crawling with

:22:22.:22:26.

outsiders and foreigners and if we kick them all, you will have nothing

:22:27.:22:31.

to watch, but football and mixed martial arts which are not the arts!

:22:32.:22:42.

What an honour, thank you thank you for acknowledging me in this way.

:22:43.:22:50.

Tom Ford thank you for this opportunity. Creating this role and

:22:51.:22:55.

collaborating on this journey was an immense joy. Moonlight. Complex

:22:56.:23:03.

coming of age movie Moonlight had been tipped to bring diversity to an

:23:04.:23:06.

industry criticised as too white, but it won just one award, Best

:23:07.:23:19.

Drama. To my mum, mum you gave me my life.

:23:20.:23:29.

Elle picked up an award. Thank you for making me win in a French film

:23:30.:23:36.

directed by a Dutch director here in America. Oh my god! Thank you.

:23:37.:23:43.

Well, Hollywood can be fun and frivolous, but it prides itself on

:23:44.:23:46.

tackling serious subjects and many stars here on the red carpet are

:23:47.:23:51.

predicting a surge in political films this year following the most

:23:52.:23:53.

divisive of elections. After an evening of success

:23:54.:24:03.

for The Night Manager, we're joined by two of the creative

:24:04.:24:06.

minds behind the hit series. Executive producer Stephen Garrett

:24:07.:24:08.

and director Susanne Bier are speaking to us live from Los

:24:09.:24:10.

Angeles. How are you feeling today? Thank

:24:11.:24:11.

you. No, it was a thrilling night. I How are you feeling today? Thank

:24:12.:24:18.

apologise from the strange surroundings. I'm in an underground

:24:19.:24:27.

hotel where there was a party. This was the only place I could find that

:24:28.:24:32.

I wouldn't get drenched and provide unwarranted entertainment for your

:24:33.:24:37.

viewers. I would rather you were in the party. Thank you very much for

:24:38.:24:40.

joining us. Well, I can show you bits of it. Go on then! Why do you

:24:41.:24:45.

think The Night Manager was a success around the world? I think it

:24:46.:24:57.

was, it just touched so many buttons really. At one level there was this

:24:58.:25:02.

fantastic travel log. You were in the company of these exotic

:25:03.:25:07.

brilliant entertaining people and there was a hope that Richard Roper

:25:08.:25:12.

would be someone what everyone would want to not just have dinner, but

:25:13.:25:20.

sit next to and there is something heady and intoxicating however

:25:21.:25:21.

despicable his lifestyle and ambitions about the world he lives

:25:22.:25:24.

in. So there was something aspirational about that, but I think

:25:25.:25:28.

it was also to your correspondent's point earlier, it touched something

:25:29.:25:33.

about the world. It touched a kind of moral ambiguity that crept into

:25:34.:25:38.

politics and to everyone's lives and it deals with a world where our

:25:39.:25:44.

governments, the governments of friends of ours, sanction arms

:25:45.:25:47.

deals, the consequences of which are hideous and we have seen in the

:25:48.:25:51.

Middle East as we speak. Tell us about the actors, Tom Hiddleston,

:25:52.:25:58.

Olivia Coleman and Hugh Laurie won awards which is fabulous news. What

:25:59.:26:07.

made them stand out as well? I think... Go on. Try one more time.

:26:08.:26:16.

PROBLEM WITH SOUND I think they were all excellent.

:26:17.:26:22.

Apologies for that. We saw glimpses from that party. Are we able to show

:26:23.:26:30.

the pictures of the awkward hug? This was an eventful ceremony and

:26:31.:26:36.

this is Emma Stone. This is when the screenwriter won the award. Can we

:26:37.:26:43.

see it again? It is worth watching again. This has been described by

:26:44.:26:47.

many as the most awkward moment. She goes in. He is already hugging his

:26:48.:26:52.

girlfriend. That's painful. This has happened to all of us, hasn't it? I

:26:53.:26:55.

once went to kiss somebody happened to all of us, hasn't it? I

:26:56.:26:59.

cheek and their nose went in my eye. I'm still embarrassed about it now.

:27:00.:27:02.

Time for the news, the weather and the travel where you are

:27:03.:27:05.

A report out today says we could get more low-carbon power for less money

:27:06.:27:10.

by devolving control over Scottish customers' electricity bills.

:27:11.:27:16.

All UK consumers are set to pay for the government's new nuclear

:27:17.:27:19.

But the study for the Scottish Greens by Aberdeen University

:27:20.:27:23.

suggests Scots could fund almost twice as much power from onshore

:27:24.:27:26.

To achieve this, the Scottish Greens are calling for control over energy

:27:27.:27:31.

Scotland's police watchdog is to examine the way

:27:32.:27:37.

The exercise comes ahead of the proposed transfer

:27:38.:27:43.

Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabularies in Scotland

:27:44.:27:47.

will conduct the study with its English and

:27:48.:27:48.

They'll be looking at various aspects of operation within

:27:49.:27:54.

the force which is responsible for policing the UK's railways.

:27:55.:27:56.

They'll also examine how BTP in Scotland can be integrated

:27:57.:28:00.

into the main force and how it would deal with

:28:01.:28:01.

Reforms are needed to Scotland's skills system to meet the challenges

:28:02.:28:07.

facing the country's economy, according to a think tank.

:28:08.:28:11.

The Institute for Public Policy Research in Scotland says

:28:12.:28:13.

technological changes will alter traditional low and mid-skilled

:28:14.:28:16.

roles and as a result people will need to be better supported

:28:17.:28:19.

Small businesses in Scotland are leading the way on digital

:28:20.:28:28.

skills compared to other parts of Britain.

:28:29.:28:30.

According to a report by the Bank of Scotland,

:28:31.:28:32.

fewer than a third of small businesses north of the border lack

:28:33.:28:37.

basic online skills, compared to the UK average of 38%.

:28:38.:28:38.

Only London rivals Scotland in terms of digital skills.

:28:39.:28:40.

The report, however, warns that cyber security is rising

:28:41.:28:45.

in prominence as a reason for small businesses not to do more online.

:28:46.:28:49.

Breakfast time weather now and it's over to Judith with the outlook

:28:50.:28:52.

It's turning progressively colder and wintry.

:28:53.:28:58.

This morning, it's mild with a band of rain sweeping

:28:59.:29:01.

It will clear away, it brightens up, spells of sunshine for Southern

:29:02.:29:08.

We will see showers pushing across western Scotland.

:29:09.:29:16.

Very few getting to the East during daylight hours.

:29:17.:29:23.

The winds pick up against across the Northwest with gales developing.

:29:24.:29:26.

After a mild start, temperatures fall to around about 7-8.

:29:27.:29:29.

As we head into the evening, the showers becoming more heavy

:29:30.:29:31.

Spreading across the country through the evening but then

:29:32.:29:36.

Gales across the North touching severe gale force for a time

:29:37.:29:43.

and they will start to ease during the overnight

:29:44.:29:45.

period and temperatures eventually settling at 3-4.

:29:46.:29:49.

Now, it's over to Kaye Adams to find out what's happening

:29:50.:29:55.

Two years after reducing the drink drive limit,

:29:56.:29:59.

more people than ever were caught over the festive period.

:30:00.:30:03.

Was there any point in making the change?

:30:04.:30:04.

Also this morning, the woman who wants your help to see

:30:05.:30:09.

How did you get back to a good place?

:30:10.:30:15.

I'll be back with the headlines around nine o'clock.

:30:16.:30:19.

Hello, this is Breakfast with Dan Walker and Louise Minchin.

:30:20.:30:33.

Theresa May will outline plans which she says will transform mental

:30:34.:30:36.

In her first major speech on health since becoming Prime Minister,

:30:37.:30:41.

Mrs May will announce a review of services for children

:30:42.:30:44.

and teenagers as well as extra support for schools and businesses.

:30:45.:30:47.

Labour says people are being let down by a lack of funding.

:30:48.:30:49.

Let's talk now to the Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt.

:30:50.:30:55.

Good morning. Thank you for your time. It's nice to see you because

:30:56.:31:00.

there's been lots of questions about where you've been this weekend, with

:31:01.:31:05.

the Red Cross saying the health service is involved in a

:31:06.:31:11.

humanitarian crisis. Were you hiding this weekend? I'm here talking to

:31:12.:31:15.

you now, and I was willing to go on to the BBC yesterday, but you wanted

:31:16.:31:21.

to have Justine Greening instead. There is a very serious situation. A

:31:22.:31:28.

number of hospitals are finding it very, very challenging. This is the

:31:29.:31:31.

most difficult time of year and the first thing I want to do is thank

:31:32.:31:35.

NHS staff who are working unbelievably hard. We had medical

:31:36.:31:41.

professionals working on Christmas Day and New Year's Day. The Tuesday

:31:42.:31:45.

after Christmas was the busiest day in the history of the NHS. Before we

:31:46.:31:49.

have any other discussions I think it's worth putting on the table that

:31:50.:31:53.

people on the front line are working really, really hard for all of our

:31:54.:31:58.

sakes. I'm sure they will appreciate that, but they will also say, is the

:31:59.:32:04.

service they are working in in a humanitarian crisis? The Red Cross

:32:05.:32:07.

not telling the truth? There is a big difference between what you just

:32:08.:32:13.

said, and a humanitarian crisis, so which is true? You should listen to

:32:14.:32:18.

what independent people are saying. People like Chris Hobson who

:32:19.:32:21.

represents all but hospitals. No friend of the government when it

:32:22.:32:25.

comes to NHS policy. He rejected that description because he says the

:32:26.:32:31.

vast majority of hospitals are coping slightly better than one year

:32:32.:32:35.

ago. But you have some very severe problems in a few hospitals, which

:32:36.:32:40.

no one wants to play down. They are serious and we are doing everything

:32:41.:32:44.

we can to support them. Sarah will stun the chairman of the health

:32:45.:32:49.

select committee also, often at critic of

:32:50.:32:49.

select committee also, often at critic of the government, has also

:32:50.:32:56.

rejected that phrase -- Sarah Woolaston. We are doing everything

:32:57.:32:59.

we can to sort out the problems, this is the most challenging time of

:33:00.:33:03.

year for the NHS, but in the vast majority of cases people can be

:33:04.:33:08.

confident that their services are managing to cope, despite extreme

:33:09.:33:12.

pressure. People watching this programme will know that there are

:33:13.:33:16.

huge funding issues right across the NHS. Today the Prime Minister is

:33:17.:33:20.

going to talk about mental health measures. Where is that money going

:33:21.:33:31.

to come from? We putting an extra ?10 billion into the NHS... I've

:33:32.:33:38.

heard you say that a lot. A number of people, including people from

:33:39.:33:41.

your own party, including the Conservative chair of the Commons

:33:42.:33:45.

health select committee says that figure is incorrect and it's nearer

:33:46.:33:49.

to ?6 billion. If that is the case you're upping that by 40%. That is

:33:50.:33:55.

wrong. The people we should listen to other people in the NHS who put

:33:56.:34:00.

together their plan and said they needed the NHS budget to go up by

:34:01.:34:04.

?10 billion. The reason why other people have criticised that number,

:34:05.:34:10.

is that in order to do that we made savings from other parts of the

:34:11.:34:13.

Department of Health's budget. You've asked whether funding was

:34:14.:34:17.

coming from. What no one is disagreeing about is that extra

:34:18.:34:22.

funding is going into the NHS. This year it is ?3.8 billion. What the

:34:23.:34:25.

Prime Minister is saying today is that one of her big priorities, if

:34:26.:34:30.

we are going to have a country that works for everyone, is to

:34:31.:34:34.

improvement of health provision. We are accepting the report which says

:34:35.:34:40.

we should spend around ?1 billion a year more on mental health provision

:34:41.:34:44.

by the end of this Parliament. A particular focus is on young people,

:34:45.:34:48.

that's the area where I think we do least well off all in terms of

:34:49.:34:53.

provision of all NHS services. We know that about three children in

:34:54.:35:01.

every classroom have a diagnosable mental health problem. The pressures

:35:02.:35:07.

of peer pressure, cyber bullying and increases in her self harming we are

:35:08.:35:12.

sadly seen. Theresa May said this is a big priority, we want to sort this

:35:13.:35:16.

out. It's not acceptable some people don't get the help they need. She's

:35:17.:35:20.

making this a big priority of her premiership. In a survey of NHS

:35:21.:35:26.

providers last year the majority of trusts said they thought mental

:35:27.:35:28.

health funding wasn't reaching them in their jobs, on the front line.

:35:29.:35:36.

Are you going to ring fence that money to make sure it makes a

:35:37.:35:38.

difference? How can you guarantee that money will get there and won't

:35:39.:35:43.

get swallowed up by other parts of the NHS? I think it has been a bit

:35:44.:35:49.

patchy across the NHS. Now, we are seeing quite big increases in

:35:50.:35:54.

funding. We are on track to spend about ?1 billion more on mental

:35:55.:35:58.

health provision and we spent just two years ago. Which is a

:35:59.:36:03.

significant increase. The clinical commissioning groups who hold the

:36:04.:36:07.

budgets at the local level are increasing proportion of their spend

:36:08.:36:11.

that goes into mental health. The climate is changing but there's

:36:12.:36:13.

definitely more that needs to be done. I think today's speech by the

:36:14.:36:18.

Prime Minister will give that a big boost. When will that funding

:36:19.:36:21.

actually reach them? If they're watching this morning and preparing

:36:22.:36:25.

to go for a shift today, when will that money make a difference to the

:36:26.:36:29.

jobs they are doing? It is already happening. This year we on track to

:36:30.:36:35.

spend about ?1 billion more than two years ago. This is starting to

:36:36.:36:38.

happen but what the Prime Minister is announcing today is that we will

:36:39.:36:44.

go even further. We are accepting an independent report that says we

:36:45.:36:50.

need, if we are going to deal with this issue, people having to wait

:36:51.:36:52.

too long for mental health care, we need to be treating around 1 million

:36:53.:36:56.

more people every year by 2020. For people who have teenage daughters,

:36:57.:37:02.

for example, which is one of the areas we are most worried about in

:37:03.:37:06.

terms of the pressures created by things like social media, I think

:37:07.:37:12.

that will be welcome. Every time we speak to you on this programme, and

:37:13.:37:15.

in the vast majority of interviews, you are doing your best to defend

:37:16.:37:19.

the NHS. There's questions about funding and how much money is

:37:20.:37:24.

required. You always saying there is money here and money there and

:37:25.:37:27.

people accuse you of not doing the right job. If the NHS favourable or

:37:28.:37:35.

is it on life support? I think I'm the only Health Secretary ever who

:37:36.:37:39.

is it on life support? I think I'm has asked two Prime ministers in a

:37:40.:37:41.

row if I can remain in the job. That is because I'm totally passionate

:37:42.:37:45.

about what the NHS does. I think it's one of the best things we have

:37:46.:37:47.

in this country. I want to offer the it's one of the best things we have

:37:48.:37:52.

safest, best health care of anywhere in the world. I believe we can do

:37:53.:37:56.

that. I don't want to pretend it's not a very difficult period now.

:37:57.:38:00.

Funding is an issue but I think we miss a trick if we say it's just

:38:01.:38:07.

about money. It's also about standards and the quality of care.

:38:08.:38:09.

We have some of the best care anywhere in the world in this

:38:10.:38:13.

country, but it's not consistent. I want every NHS patient to be

:38:14.:38:17.

confident that they, their mum or their dad or their grandparents, can

:38:18.:38:21.

be confident of getting that high-quality care. There's a lot of

:38:22.:38:25.

work to be done but I think we have incredible commitment from NHS staff

:38:26.:38:29.

work to be done but I think we have and I'm determined to get there.

:38:30.:38:29.

Thank you. Up to 4 million commuters in London

:38:30.:38:36.

face significant disruption this morning because of a strike across

:38:37.:38:39.

the entire Underground network. Members of the RMT and TSSA

:38:40.:38:42.

unions walked out last night in a row about jobs

:38:43.:38:46.

and ticket office closures. The 24-hour strike is due

:38:47.:38:50.

to finish at 6:00pm tonight. Thousands of British drivers

:38:51.:39:00.

affected by the Volkswagen diesel emissions scandal are taking legal

:39:01.:39:03.

action against the car-maker. VW admitted using software that

:39:04.:39:05.

would cheat emissions tests, leading to a recall of millions

:39:06.:39:07.

of cars worldwide. A compensation scheme was approved

:39:08.:39:09.

in the United States last year, and lawyers want British customers

:39:10.:39:12.

to be offered a similar settlement. It's thought up to 15 people have

One of the presenters of that programme is Angela Rippon,

:45:13.:45:15.

And Liz Smith-Mills is from the British Institute

:45:16.:45:18.

Good morning to you, Angela Rippon. We will all grimacing while we were

:45:19.:45:25.

watching that. Were you horrified by what you found? I think the whole

:45:26.:45:29.

team were horrified. When we sent our findings to the doctor, clinical

:45:30.:45:35.

microbiologist, and some of our viewers will remember that she

:45:36.:45:38.

caused a stir when we did a similar test looking for bacteria in fast

:45:39.:45:42.

food outlets. She is going to cause a stir when the film comes up at

:45:43.:45:47.

9:15am immediately after you guys on BBC One, because you just saw some

:45:48.:45:52.

9:15am immediately after you guys on of the findings that we came up

:45:53.:45:54.

with. We looked at a whole range of hotels from five star down to two

:45:55.:46:01.

start, anything from ?35 to ?140 a night. And you expect high levels of

:46:02.:46:05.

cleanliness in the 5-star hotel. We are not saying that all five star

:46:06.:46:09.

hotels do not have high levels of cleanliness and all to star hotels

:46:10.:46:15.

are paragons of virtue. What we discovered in our test will really

:46:16.:46:19.

make people sit up and Bing. In the 5-star hotel, as you mentioned, off

:46:20.:46:25.

the scale was the material we found on the bed covers, the door handles,

:46:26.:46:31.

and the television remote control. And the four star hotel we found

:46:32.:46:34.

similarly high levels door handles and the remote control and in the

:46:35.:46:38.

three star hotel, this is really worrying, because one of the areas

:46:39.:46:42.

we looked at with a glass tumbler is that you get in the bathroom, and

:46:43.:46:46.

that they were so far of the scale we could not record them. One of the

:46:47.:46:51.

light switches had so much bacteria on it that the petri dish was

:46:52.:46:57.

actually foaming. It is a wake-up call for people who are guests in

:46:58.:47:01.

hotels. Whatever the rating they have got, you have got to aware

:47:02.:47:10.

that... Sometimes we see housekeeping trolleys in the

:47:11.:47:13.

corridors and they go in and they change the sheets and towels and

:47:14.:47:15.

pillow slips, but in some hotels I change the sheets and towels and

:47:16.:47:19.

think the staff are under such pressure to get as many rooms done

:47:20.:47:22.

as possible that they go in and change the obvious things like

:47:23.:47:25.

sheets and towels, and they go around with the vacuum cleaner and a

:47:26.:47:32.

damp cloth, and that is it. But as our tests show, there are so many

:47:33.:47:36.

areas where there could be bacteria that we are going to be picking up.

:47:37.:47:41.

Particularly throughout control. Every single one of that goes into a

:47:42.:47:47.

hotel, we use a mode control to switch on the radio or television,

:47:48.:47:53.

whatever, and who knows? The person using it before you might have had a

:47:54.:47:56.

terrible cold and the bacteria are still there. It is creepy when you

:47:57.:48:01.

think about it! Don't change channels is the answer! Angela is

:48:02.:48:06.

talking about people that clean the rooms but there are things that you

:48:07.:48:09.

can do yourself, including covering your toothbrush to stop bacteria

:48:10.:48:14.

getting on that. There are normal hand sanitisers that people use.

:48:15.:48:18.

Taking your own flannel. And for some people, they even take their

:48:19.:48:24.

own BBC branded surface cleaner in and clean the room themselves to get

:48:25.:48:29.

rid of some of the bacteria. That is correct but it is only in extreme

:48:30.:48:33.

circumstances. The majority of hotel rooms are spotlessly clean. Angela

:48:34.:48:37.

has picked up on the fact that a proper practices are not adhered to,

:48:38.:48:41.

there will be a shortfall in standards that are expected. I am

:48:42.:48:47.

representing the British Institute of Cleaning Science but I work with

:48:48.:48:51.

the housekeepers association and the Institute of Hospitality to make

:48:52.:48:54.

sure training is carried out and standards adhered to. Colour coding

:48:55.:48:59.

prevents cross contamination, for example, so they are not using the

:49:00.:49:02.

same cleaning cloth on the toilet that they are sanitising the glasses

:49:03.:49:07.

with. And making sure that correct cleaning practices are adhered to.

:49:08.:49:16.

It is getting worse! The top tip is anything that you drink out of that

:49:17.:49:19.

you have got to clean yourself? It has got to be sanitised. The best

:49:20.:49:23.

practices to make sure the sync is thoroughly cleaned first or take

:49:24.:49:29.

them to a dishwasher. You can't do that in a hotel. What about the

:49:30.:49:36.

hotels, surely they should be doing something about it? I think this is

:49:37.:49:41.

a huge wake-up call for the hotels, perhaps the larger chains in

:49:42.:49:43.

particular. The fact that the bedspreads have got such a very high

:49:44.:49:48.

bacterial count on them suggests that there is no routine within the

:49:49.:49:53.

hotel management to say that every three months, six months, whatever,

:49:54.:49:57.

perhaps less than that, those bed covers should be either dry-cleaned

:49:58.:50:01.

or put in a very high level wash. On the trolleys, you see the cleaning

:50:02.:50:06.

staff taking the sheets and the towels and those things, but they

:50:07.:50:12.

are not carrying bedspreads. In just about every case except in our two

:50:13.:50:18.

star hotel, in just about every case, the bed covers had off the

:50:19.:50:23.

scale results so it is a wake-up call hotel management as well, I

:50:24.:50:26.

think. But I totally endorse what your expert in the studio says. Over

:50:27.:50:30.

the last couple of weeks when I have been travelling and working, I have

:50:31.:50:33.

been taking those little bottles of hand sanitiser with me that we

:50:34.:50:37.

normally take to third world countries! I have been using them

all the time. Angela Rippon, so many lovely thoughts! And lives, thank

:50:43.:50:48.

you. Are you holding on to that? I'm going to get a space suit! And if

:50:49.:50:50.

you can bear it... Rip Off Britain - Holidays

:50:51.:50:55.

is on BBC One immediately after us Here's Carol with a look

:50:56.:50:57.

at this morning's weather. And there are lots of interesting

:50:58.:51:06.

things going on. Certainly. First of all we had this beautiful picture

:51:07.:51:09.

from Guernsey taken earlier this morning. Lovely sunrise but rain is

:51:10.:51:14.

on the weight which we have already got careening out of Northern

:51:15.:51:17.

Ireland and Ireland and Scotland and moving across England and Wales

:51:18.:51:21.

throughout the day and some of us already have it in western England

:51:22.:51:25.

and Wales courtesy of this weather front. Look at the squeeze in the

:51:26.:51:27.

isobars behind it. It will turn very windy with gusts up to gale force in

:51:28.:51:32.

the North West. This morning brighter skies in the far south.

:51:33.:51:34.

They will be transit because the brighter skies in the far south.

:51:35.:51:37.

cloud will build up ahead of the rain and then the rain moves in.

:51:38.:51:43.

Behind that, an improvement. Dry conditions and showers. Some of the

:51:44.:51:48.

showers will be wintery in Scotland above 500 metres. The next band of

:51:49.:51:52.

rain waiting in the winds and gusting to gale force with exposure

:51:53.:51:59.

in the North West. Then Northern Ireland and northern England, a

:52:00.:52:02.

mixture of bright stars and sunshine but dry weather elsewhere. Then this

:52:03.:52:06.

weather front pushes into the South East but as it moves away, in its

:52:07.:52:10.

wake we are looking at quite a bit of cloud left behind. That rain

:52:11.:52:15.

should clear Kent as we had around the tea-time power. Behind it lots

:52:16.:52:18.

of showers and the rain coming in from the west, moving east. The rain

:52:19.:52:28.

will move from the North West to the North East and will slowly abate a

:52:29.:52:34.

little bit in the North West. Tomorrow is another blustery day. We

:52:35.:52:37.

start off with clear skies and it will be cold and frosty. Some

:52:38.:52:42.

sunshine. Note how the cloud builds ahead of this weather front

:52:43.:52:45.

introducing rain, moving from the west to the east through the day.

:52:46.:52:49.

Not especially heavy. Behind it we see a return to brighter skies and

:52:50.:52:54.

showers. Hanging on to the milder conditions further south. Something

:52:55.:52:58.

cooler showing at hand in the north. We will certainly have that through

:52:59.:52:59.

the course of Wednesday with showers We will certainly have that through

:53:00.:53:04.

increasingly turning wintery. For most of us on Wednesday it will be

:53:05.:53:08.

fine, dry, with just a couple of showers in the west. We will see a

:53:09.:53:12.

bit of sunshine as well but you will notice that it will feel much colder

:53:13.:53:17.

than it has done. Four the maximum in Aberdeen and a high temperature

:53:18.:53:22.

of eight or nine in Plymouth. As we head to the latter part of the week,

:53:23.:53:25.

the milder yellow colouring is replaced by the cold blue. We start

:53:26.:53:31.

to pull in the air from the north and the North West, which is the

:53:32.:53:35.

wind direction we will have. It will feel cold and some of us will see

:53:36.:53:41.

some snow. We start of the week with some rain, windy, sunshine, but by

:53:42.:53:44.

the end of it we could see snow almost anywhere, but not absolutely

:53:45.:53:50.

the end of it we could see snow everywhere. The likely places are

:53:51.:53:53.

northern England, northern Scotland, parts of Wales and the South West

:53:54.:53:56.

but that could change. Keep in touch with the weather forecast. Thank

:53:57.:54:01.

you. We will always keep in touch with you. It looks very pretty but I

:54:02.:54:03.

know it can I know! I was looking at you! OK,

:54:04.:54:05.

some live shots from our helicopter I know! I was looking at you! OK,

:54:06.:54:18.

over London this morning as commuters face disruption with a 24

:54:19.:54:25.

hour strike by the RMT union and the Transport Salaried Staffs

:54:26.:54:30.

Association. Then was talking about so many cars on the roads and are we

:54:31.:54:36.

using the word chaos? So many people making different ways to work. One

:54:37.:54:41.

young lady whose journey takes 15 minutes taking over an hour. Lots of

:54:42.:54:44.

people making alternative arrangements today. The strike

:54:45.:54:47.

started last night and it will continue until six o'clock tonight

:54:48.:54:52.

but then the trains will not be in the right places further disruption

:54:53.:54:56.

is likely to continue. More coverage of the strike throughout the day on

:54:57.:54:58.

the BBC News Channel for you. Shifts in the political landscape

:54:59.:55:02.

and the rising cost of living, just two of the issues that

:55:03.:55:05.

many of us worry about, but perhaps not something you'd expect young

:55:06.:55:08.

people to be concerned with. But a survey by the Prince's Trust

:55:09.:55:15.

of 16 to 25-year-olds found that those

:55:16.:55:19.

are exactly the issues that leave are trapped and with no

:55:20.:55:20.

control of their lives. You have done the research. What is

:55:21.:55:36.

the most striking thing you have found? People are feeling less

:55:37.:55:40.

confident and less happy about their lives over the period of the survey.

:55:41.:55:44.

A number of people don't feel like they have got control of their

:55:45.:55:47.

lives, they are trapped by circumstances, and a whole series of

:55:48.:55:53.

factors are influencing that feeling that their prospects are not as good

:55:54.:55:56.

factors are influencing that feeling as they might be. Do we not all feel

:55:57.:55:59.

a little bit like that? I'm not trying to reduce the importance of

:56:00.:56:01.

the research but is that not something that is broadly seen

:56:02.:56:07.

across society? I suspect that we do but it is important to take note of

:56:08.:56:11.

a survey like this. We are asking the generation of 16-25 -year-olds

:56:12.:56:14.

who you hope would be naturally optimistic about their prospects,

:56:15.:56:18.

and as you said, there are series of optimistic about their prospects,

:56:19.:56:21.

long-term issues affecting young people. Being out of work, not being

:56:22.:56:24.

in meaningful education, and then also the issues around economic and

:56:25.:56:28.

political uncertainty, those wider issues. We should be concerned about

:56:29.:56:33.

it. Yes, we all have challenges from day to day, but one in ten young

:56:34.:56:36.

people said they didn't think they had anybody who cared for them and

:56:37.:56:40.

just short of 20% thought their lives would amount to nothing. All

:56:41.:56:48.

of us have that moment occasionally we are going but we don't get to the

:56:49.:56:51.

point where we think what is this all about? Half of them are stressed

:56:52.:56:56.

about body image. Is that the new thing, do you think? This is

:56:57.:57:01.

relative, I always think. We are celebrating ten years of the iPhone

:57:02.:57:07.

and what it has brought to us, that social media, and I think that body

:57:08.:57:11.

image thing, it puts more and more pressure on us, the images online

:57:12.:57:15.

these days, the desire to look as good as you can. It is probably a

:57:16.:57:19.

new thing. These things change from time to time but it is really

:57:20.:57:23.

concerning for young people. That, as well as a number of other

:57:24.:57:28.

factors. We have just been to Theresa May, -- to Jeremy Hunt about

:57:29.:57:40.

Theresa May's focus on mental health issues. Will that help? I work with

:57:41.:57:45.

the Prince's Trust and we are seeing more and more young people with

:57:46.:57:47.

mental health challenges coming to us that it is a really important

:57:48.:57:51.

issue. The announcement that Theresa May is making today is really

:57:52.:57:54.

important. We look to work with government to help tackle those

:57:55.:57:57.

things and in fact we are about to launch the Prince's Trust strategy

:57:58.:58:00.

that will embed mental health issues in every programme that we run. Some

:58:01.:58:05.

of the issues that have come out of the survey today to talk about young

:58:06.:58:09.

people's anxiety, issues about how confident they feel, and those are

:58:10.:58:14.

mental health challenges. We look forward to working with the

:58:15.:58:17.

government on it and we hope the survey can inform some of that.

:58:18.:58:20.

Jonathan, from the Prince's Trust, thank you.

:58:21.:58:24.

Ballroom, ballet and bhangra, just three types of dance on show

:58:25.:58:26.

in a new BBC Two series that aims to get Yorkshire's residents

:58:27.:58:29.

It's the brain child of West End choreographer, Steve Elias,

:58:30.:58:32.

who wants to showcase the history and heritage of three

:58:33.:58:36.

In a moment, we'll speak to Steve and northern soul fan Dianne.

:58:37.:58:43.

But first, let's take a look at Steve persuading the people

:58:44.:58:46.

The only time I dance is when I'm drunk!

:58:47.:58:57.

I'm going to take you into a back bend.

:58:58.:59:13.

He does ballet already, show him your ballet.

:59:14.:59:23.

Watching that were Steve Elias and Dianne France.

:59:24.:59:38.

Steve, the idea. Talk to me about this. There's a meeting and you say,

:59:39.:59:44.

I want to get three northern towns dancing. It came from the

:59:45.:59:50.

inspiration of the London Olympics. Where you saw ordinary people

:59:51.:59:54.

celebrate where they come from, celebrate the UK. So I wanted to

:59:55.:00:00.

take a little bit of that and rediscover three communities and the

:00:01.:00:04.

people who live and work there. So we went up to Yorkshire and I worked

:00:05.:00:10.

in Barnsley, Skipton, Huddersfield. Then we came together in a grand

:00:11.:00:17.

finale in the city of York. Dianne, you're not afraid to dance, are you?

:00:18.:00:21.

No. Where did you start dancing and how much do you love it? I first

:00:22.:00:27.

went on the scene at ten years old. We had it at a youth club which is

:00:28.:00:32.

when I first heard Motown. When I was 14 I started going to the youth

:00:33.:00:36.

clubs. It has just stayed with me, all my life. You've just got to

:00:37.:00:39.

clubs. It has just stayed with me, the passion for the music.

:00:40.:00:46.

Let's take a look at you showing Steve how it's done.

:00:47.:00:49.

Are they signature steps, are they steps you call by name?

:00:50.:01:09.

Nobody can teach you Northern Soul dancing, regardless

:01:10.:01:11.

They just can't, because it comes from here.

:01:12.:01:16.

If you feel like freaking out, freak out.

:01:17.:01:20.

It's great advice! Honestly, I envy you. Dianne and her friends love

:01:21.:01:44.

dancing but some people went so keen, where they? You can imagine. I

:01:45.:01:51.

don't look like a dancer, I've got a Welsh accent, going around with my

:01:52.:01:55.

flyers asking them to join a dance. I'm known in the industry of working

:01:56.:02:00.

with people who aren't dancers. It was a case of gaining their

:02:01.:02:06.

confidence. In my mind, anyone can dance. Let's start with the basics,

:02:07.:02:11.

two steps forward, two steps back. That's dance. It was just kind of

:02:12.:02:23.

gaining their trust. And what this programme is about, is telling their

:02:24.:02:28.

stories. Through dance. So I went into each town with nothing

:02:29.:02:32.

prepared, no choreography, nothing. So that's all I had, a sound.

:02:33.:02:41.

Dianne, what was it like getting together at the end of all this and

:02:42.:02:45.

dancing with people in York in the whole jamboree at the end? It was

:02:46.:02:52.

absolutely fantastic. When we first met Steve we thought he was

:02:53.:02:56.

crackers! LAUGHTER I thought, no way! It's amazing, he pulled it off.

:02:57.:03:05.

He's a genius. There is something powerful. We are watching bits of it

:03:06.:03:10.

now. They're something powerful about lots of people doing the same

:03:11.:03:19.

thing in a joint endeavour. Yeah. These people couldn't dance. They go

:03:20.:03:22.

on a journey and there something about when you're in a dance studio

:03:23.:03:26.

or whatever, and you laugh together, sweat together, and fail together.

:03:27.:03:32.

You work towards the end product on the same level. People are helping

:03:33.:03:37.

each other to get to that point. If you times that by 350 in Barnsley

:03:38.:03:42.

and 500 people in the finale at York. The idea is Dancing in the

:03:43.:03:54.

Streets, plus some. Yes. It was taking the heritage of each town.

:03:55.:04:00.

Also there was no editing. It was a one track camera shot. You see warts

:04:01.:04:06.

and all. It wasn't to turn people into professional dancers because

:04:07.:04:09.

that would have become something different. It was about a

:04:10.:04:14.

celebration of a community and a cow. Sounds like the sort of thing

:04:15.:04:18.

you want to roll out in other parts of the country. -- celebration of a

:04:19.:04:26.

community and a town. The secrets, to let go and...? Listen to the

:04:27.:04:33.

music, listen to the lyrics and let your feet interpret what you're

:04:34.:04:37.

listening to. Freestyle! Thank you both.

:04:38.:04:41.

Our Dancing Town starts tomorrow on BBC Two at 9:00pm.

:04:42.:04:43.

We'll be speaking to Renee Fleming in a moment, but first a last,

:04:44.:04:46.

brief look at the headlines where you are this morning.

:04:47.:04:53.

A report out today says we could get more low-carbon power for less money

:04:54.:04:58.

by devolving control over Scottish customers electricity bills.

:04:59.:05:03.

All UK consumers are set to pay for the government's new nuclear

:05:04.:05:05.

But the study, for the Scottish Greens, by Aberdeen University,

:05:06.:05:11.

suggests Scots could fund almost twice as much power from onshore

:05:12.:05:15.

and offshore wind farms energy payments to be devolved to Holyrood.

:05:16.:05:23.

Scotland's police watchdog is to look at the way

:05:24.:05:23.

The exercise comes ahead of the proposed transfer

:05:24.:05:27.

Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabularies in Scotland

:05:28.:05:35.

including how it can be integrated into the main force.

:05:36.:05:39.

Reforms are needed to Scotland's skills system to meet the challenges

:05:40.:05:42.

facing the country's economy, according to a think tank.

:05:43.:05:44.

The Institute for Public Policy Research in Scotland says

:05:45.:05:47.

technological changes will alter traditional low and mid-skilled

:05:48.:05:50.

roles and as a result people will need to be better supported

:05:51.:05:54.

A windy day with strong southwesterly winds veering

:05:55.:06:00.

into the west eventually and bringing frequent, blustery

:06:01.:06:03.

showers across the northwest highlands and western Scotland.

:06:04.:06:10.

The winds reaching gale force in the north and northwest by dusk.

:06:11.:06:13.

After a mild start temperatures will fall a few degrees settling

:06:14.:06:16.

Goodbye. BBC radio London.

:06:17.:06:36.

Often dismissed as being elitist, opera for a long time has

:06:37.:06:38.

But the soprano Renee Fleming is doing more than her fair share

:06:39.:06:42.

to bring it to the attention of the masses.

:06:43.:06:44.

She's performed at a Super Bowl final, an Olympics opening ceremony,

:06:45.:06:48.

President Obama's inauguration, as well as the Queen's

:06:49.:06:49.

With her new album, she's enlisted the help of Icelandic singer Bjork,

:06:50.:06:53.

Before we speak to Renee, let's have a look at one of those songs.

:06:54.:07:01.

The soprano Renee Fleming joins us now.

:07:02.:07:53.

Thank you for coming in. The linkup with Bjork, how did that come about?

:07:54.:08:02.

I just had this idea. She's a household name, I admire her

:08:03.:08:08.

creativity. She was doing things before with costumes and The Swan.

:08:09.:08:14.

All of her arrangements are extraordinary, she's an artist. She

:08:15.:08:19.

is also a Sopranos. I thought, let me just try it and see how it works

:08:20.:08:26.

with the. Did you phone her up and say, can we do something? It was

:08:27.:08:33.

through friends, eventually they said, just of it. It's got a

:08:34.:08:40.

particular sound. That song in particular, the words are so

:08:41.:08:45.

beautiful. I wondered if I should try to copy her vocally because she

:08:46.:08:49.

has an enigmatic way of singing, so I sang it with my voice. It's the

:08:50.:08:56.

first album of yours in three years. Aside from Bjork, what was your

:08:57.:09:02.

other inspiration? I had a holiday last year. It was the first

:09:03.:09:08.

orchestral piece in three years. It was a relationship with the

:09:09.:09:13.

Stockholm Philharmonic. We performed these long, serious works for

:09:14.:09:17.

soprano and orchestra which I love. They are beautiful. Then the Bjork

:09:18.:09:24.

was rounding out the Scandinavian picture, I think. You've performed

:09:25.:09:30.

at the Super Bowl, for President Obama. Also the Queen's Jubilee!

:09:31.:09:36.

That was unforgettable for us. You were on the balcony. Describe what

:09:37.:09:40.

that was like. I didn't realise what a big deal that was. Evidently we

:09:41.:09:44.

were the first people who weren't part of the Royal family to even

:09:45.:09:48.

appear on the balcony so that was exciting. Performing at Barack

:09:49.:09:53.

Obama's inauguration, I'm sure there's a lot of talk about who will

:09:54.:09:57.

sing at Donald Trump's inauguration, would you do that if asked? I think

:09:58.:10:03.

another thing is doing it, a lovely young singer, I love her talent. I

:10:04.:10:08.

think she's a perfect choice. She comes from TV, she is a huge star.

:10:09.:10:16.

She'll be great. Right at the beginning we talked about opera

:10:17.:10:19.

being elitist. You try to change that, how important is it for you? I

:10:20.:10:24.

don't think of opera as elitist at all. Opera employs so many people.

:10:25.:10:29.

There are so many young singers all over the world trying to do what we

:10:30.:10:34.

do. Its historic, it tells stories that are incredibly epic. I'd just

:10:35.:10:39.

like to open barriers. I want to be able to sing anything I want to

:10:40.:10:44.

sing, I've sung jazz, rock, now Bjork. I wanted to be available to

:10:45.:10:49.

everybody. Which is why when were watching the previous piece about

:10:50.:10:55.

dancing in the street, you were engaged in that because it's taking

:10:56.:11:00.

something outside the normal areas. Yes, I keep thinking about the joy

:11:01.:11:04.

of dancing. It's all about being inspired by music. We should be

:11:05.:11:08.

doing it more. I wish there was more dance. Where you performing last

:11:09.:11:13.

night in the Royal Opera House? I was. It's such a gorgeous opera. I

:11:14.:11:18.

love Strauss, he's my desert island composer. This role is my favourite.

:11:19.:11:24.

Two more performances. You're currently performing

:11:25.:11:27.

in Der Rosenkavalier Let's see you in it,

:11:28.:11:28.

this was a couple of That wasn't the one you've been

:11:29.:12:10.

doing over the past couple of days? This is a new production by Robert

:12:11.:12:15.

Carson but we are taking this to the Met in the spring. It's a more

:12:16.:12:20.

modern production. Its 20th century. We just saw the woman playing the

:12:21.:12:24.

man who then dresses up as the woman, it's gender fluid, it's quite

:12:25.:12:28.

modern. Obviously more work to comfort the neck rest of the year

:12:29.:12:34.

but what else are you planning? I'm touring, I'm going to Budapest, I'm

:12:35.:12:40.

in Asia. This production as the Met, always travelling, always doing new

:12:41.:12:46.

things. You were up late last night, here this morning. How do you

:12:47.:12:50.

protect the voice? The voice is the most precious thing. You wouldn't

:12:51.:12:56.

want to hear me sing today! By Wednesday I'll be great. What's your

:12:57.:13:02.

message to young children who are thinking, gosh, what an incredible

:13:03.:13:06.

career to have. It is an incredible career. Being an artist, being a

:13:07.:13:12.

musician, being a singer. We belong to a tapestry that is historic and I

:13:13.:13:16.

feel that the tradition of classical music and singing in general, I'm so

:13:17.:13:21.

passionate about that. It's an exciting field. There's much talent.

:13:22.:13:26.

You celebrate all kinds of vocal talent on television in the UK.

:13:27.:13:33.

Banks are spreading the word! -- thank you for spreading the word.

:13:34.:13:36.

Renee's new album is called Distant Light.

:13:37.:13:38.

That's all from Breakfast this morning.

:13:39.:13:45.

and you came back with a catalogue of travel disasters.

:13:46.:13:50.
