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

:00:07.:00:08.

President Obama says farewell to the American people.

:00:09.:00:11.

In his final speech as President, he warned of threats to democracy

:00:12.:00:14.

from inequality and racism - but after eight years in charge,

:00:15.:00:17.

says he's leaving the United Stated "better and stronger".

:00:18.:00:24.

Good morning, it's Wednesday, the 11th of January.

:00:25.:00:52.

A 15-year-old girl is charged with the murder of 7-year-old

:00:53.:00:56.

A warning from the Royal College of Physicians that lives

:00:57.:01:00.

are being put at risk by NHS underfunding -

:01:01.:01:02.

while experts in health and social care say MPs from all parties need

:01:03.:01:06.

A quarter of workers say money worries are stopping them

:01:07.:01:10.

doing their job properly because of sleepless nights

:01:11.:01:12.

And it's not just affecting those on lower incomes.

:01:13.:01:16.

In sport, it's one step closer to a cup final for Manchester

:01:17.:01:19.

They beat Hull City 2-0 in the first leg of the League Cup semi-final.

:01:20.:01:26.

And this is the incredible trick shot which has caused a sensation

:01:27.:01:29.

It's two minutes long and you really don't want to miss it.

:01:30.:01:39.

We are starting off with a very windy day. Windy for all day for

:01:40.:01:52.

most of us. Storms locally and severe gales for some. Sunshine

:01:53.:02:02.

further south but tomorrow, parts of the South will also have sleet and

:02:03.:02:03.

snow. Barack Obama has delivered his

:02:04.:02:06.

farewell address as US President, telling the American people

:02:07.:02:10.

he believes the country is in a better, stronger place

:02:11.:02:12.

than when he was first elected In an emotional speech in Chicago,

:02:13.:02:15.

he thanked his wife Michelle as well as his family

:02:16.:02:19.

and staff and said he still believed in the ability of people

:02:20.:02:23.

to deliver change. However, he admitted progress

:02:24.:02:25.

had not gone far enough as our US correspondent

:02:26.:02:27.

Laura Trevelyan now reports. Barack Obama returned to Chicago,

:02:28.:02:41.

the place where his political career began, to deliver his long planned

:02:42.:02:46.

farewell address. The president used his platform to underline what he

:02:47.:02:49.

sees as his achievements. If I told you wait years ago that America

:02:50.:02:56.

would reverse a great recession, reboot our auto industry, and

:02:57.:03:01.

unleash the longest stretch of job creation in our history. CHEERING

:03:02.:03:11.

AND APPLAUSE. If I told you we would open up a new chapter with the Cuban

:03:12.:03:16.

people, shutdown Iran's nuclear weapons programme without firing a

:03:17.:03:23.

shot, take out the mastermind of 911, if I had told you we would win

:03:24.:03:29.

marriage equality and secure the right to health insurance for

:03:30.:03:34.

another 20 million of our fellow citizens... CHEERING AND APPLAUSE.

:03:35.:03:46.

If I told you all that, you might have said our sites were set a

:03:47.:03:50.

little too high. Turning to his theme of what could undermine

:03:51.:03:56.

America's democracy. The American's first black president was frank

:03:57.:04:01.

about race relations. After my election, there was talk of a post-

:04:02.:04:05.

racial America. Subdivision, however well in tenanted, was never

:04:06.:04:11.

realistic. -- intended. Race remains a potent and often divisive force in

:04:12.:04:21.

our society. Paying tribute to his wife Michelle and daughters, the

:04:22.:04:24.

president became emotional. For those who had lined up for hours to

:04:25.:04:28.

hear him speak in person, the effort was worthwhile.

:04:29.:04:31.

Laura, what has the reaction been to the President's speech?

:04:32.:04:36.

There was no direct reference to Donald Trump but there have been

:04:37.:04:39.

some developments involving the President-elect, haven't there?

:04:40.:04:44.

How has the speech gone down? Supporters are still here, having a

:04:45.:04:50.

dream, mulling over it. They are depressed after the election of

:04:51.:04:55.

Donald Trump and felt that Barack Obama chartered a way forward for

:04:56.:05:00.

them -- like having a drink. But they need to defend American

:05:01.:05:03.

democracy against political apathy, fake news, corrosive political

:05:04.:05:08.

culture. This speech was not just aimed at Barack Obama's supporters

:05:09.:05:12.

but all Americans and also the President-elect Donald Trump and the

:05:13.:05:15.

President said very clearly that progress has been made but we must

:05:16.:05:19.

protect our rights as Americans. You mentioned Donald Trump that resident

:05:20.:05:26.

Obama did not mention him by name. The President elect is in the news

:05:27.:05:30.

again or is he would term, the fake news again -- President Obama. US

:05:31.:05:38.

media are reporting that Russian spy agencies have embarrassing

:05:39.:05:39.

information about the President-elect Donald Trump that is

:05:40.:05:45.

personally compromising. US media is reporting this quoting unnamed

:05:46.:05:49.

sources. They are also reporting that US intelligence agencies that

:05:50.:05:53.

done with Mr Trump privately and told them about this allegation is

:05:54.:05:58.

that apparently Russian spy agencies have. Mr Trump has responded in his

:05:59.:06:02.

signature way, on Twitter, he said fake news and it's a political

:06:03.:06:05.

witch-hunt. Remember that Donald Trump is in hot water in Washington

:06:06.:06:11.

for disparaging US Russian agencies that intelligence agencies that

:06:12.:06:18.

Russian officials attempted to affect the outcome of the election.

:06:19.:06:21.

We'll be speaking to US political analyst Eric Ham

:06:22.:06:24.

A 15-year-old girl has been charged with the murder

:06:25.:06:31.

Katie Rough died in hospital on Monday

:06:32.:06:35.

after being found with serious injuries near a playing field

:06:36.:06:37.

The teenager is due to appear before magistrates later this morning.

:06:38.:06:46.

Senior doctors are warning that a shortage of resources may leave

:06:47.:06:49.

the NHS in England unable to cope with this winter's demand.

:06:50.:06:52.

In a letter to Theresa May, the Royal College of Physicians said

:06:53.:06:56.

the quality of patient care is under threat.

:06:57.:06:58.

Charities working with elderly and disabled people

:06:59.:07:00.

have also written to the Prime Minister -

:07:01.:07:02.

calling for a long-term solution to funding for health

:07:03.:07:04.

Here's our Health correspondent Robert Pigott.

:07:05.:07:11.

The Royal College of Physicians said ambulances queueing outside

:07:12.:07:14.

hospitals were visual testament to the crisis in the NHS.

:07:15.:07:18.

The Royal College, which represents 33,000 specialist hospital doctors,

:07:19.:07:21.

said patients based lengthening waits on lists, on trolleys,

:07:22.:07:30.

in accident and emergency departments and at home.

:07:31.:07:37.

It blamed a shortage of qualified staff, stretched too thin lead

:07:38.:07:41.

Our members fear that people's lives are at risk because they can't get

:07:42.:07:46.

round to see the patients that aren't yet in the emergency

:07:47.:07:48.

department or indeed are waiting for results to come back.

:07:49.:07:54.

Members and fellows have been writing in and our council members

:07:55.:07:57.

specifically have said to me this is the worst they have ever seen.

:07:58.:08:00.

Most urgent, said the doctors, is investment in social care

:08:01.:08:03.

to prevent medically fit patients being trapped in hospitals.

:08:04.:08:06.

In their own letter to the Prime Minister,

:08:07.:08:08.

75 charities and individuals working in health and social care said

:08:09.:08:11.

there must be a long-term cross-party solution

:08:12.:08:13.

to what they called the crisis in funding.

:08:14.:08:15.

Led by the charity Independent Age, they said:

:08:16.:08:29.

The Department of Health said it had invested ?10 billion

:08:30.:08:32.

to develop health services and relieve pressure on hospitals.

:08:33.:08:35.

And, since last year, had recruited 3,000 extra nurses

:08:36.:08:38.

Meanwhile, plans to extend access to GPs in England are in "complete

:08:39.:08:50.

disarray" according to the British Medical Association.

:08:51.:08:52.

The comment follows a report by the National Audit Office

:08:53.:08:55.

which urges ministers to reconsider plans to increase

:08:56.:08:57.

weekend and evening access to family doctors in England.

:08:58.:08:59.

It says many GPs are already struggling to provide existing

:09:00.:09:02.

The Department of Health says it's promised additional funding

:09:03.:09:06.

A white supremacist, Dylann Roof, has been sentenced to death

:09:07.:09:16.

for the racist killing of nine black men and women at a church

:09:17.:09:20.

The 22-year-old opened fire during a bible studies class.

:09:21.:09:24.

He rejected a final chance to plead for his life,

:09:25.:09:27.

telling the jury he felt he "had to carry it out".

:09:28.:09:34.

A pedestrian has died in Brighton after being knocked down by a car

:09:35.:09:37.

It happened last night when police say a Vauxhall Astra

:09:38.:09:43.

failed to stop and was pursued by officers.

:09:44.:09:45.

The car hit a person on St James's Street -

:09:46.:09:48.

the force is still trying to trace the driver.

:09:49.:09:51.

A 29-year old British woman has been killed and two others are seriously

:09:52.:09:55.

injured after a light aircraft crashed in Australia.

:09:56.:09:57.

The plane came down on a remote beach in

:09:58.:10:00.

The pilot, a man in his sixties, was taken to hospital in a serious

:10:01.:10:05.

condition and a 13-year-old boy has been treated for minor injuries.

:10:06.:10:12.

For the first time, the Attorney General will set out

:10:13.:10:14.

the legal factors that need to be considered before military action

:10:15.:10:17.

is taken against terror suspects abroad.

:10:18.:10:19.

In a speech, Jeremy Wright QC will say the UK must have the right

:10:20.:10:23.

to use lethal force in self-defence in order

:10:24.:10:25.

Technology. In many ways it makes life easier for us but also easier

:10:26.:10:41.

for those who want to make -- do us harm to stop that is the warning

:10:42.:10:45.

from the government's top legal advice. Spies like those at GCHQ can

:10:46.:10:49.

gather intelligence and worn if an attack is likely. The law all of the

:10:50.:10:54.

UK to use force and self defence if it is attacked but also to prevent

:10:55.:10:59.

an attack before it happens. On that basis, the UK used one of these, and

:11:00.:11:05.

unmanned drone, to kill a British jihadist in Syria in September 20

:11:06.:11:11.

15. Riyadh Khan from Cardiff was the target and the second UK National,

:11:12.:11:19.

also died. They said it was lawful because Khan was involved in a plot

:11:20.:11:22.

to carry out a high-profile attack in the summer. There were demands of

:11:23.:11:27.

the government to clarify the legal basis for carrying out pre-emptive

:11:28.:11:30.

strikes against Islamic State militants. The attorney general,

:11:31.:11:34.

Jeremy Wright QC, will now explain for the first time how such

:11:35.:11:38.

decisions are made. The considerations include how certain

:11:39.:11:42.

it is that an attack will happen, how soon it will be and on what

:11:43.:11:45.

scale. Whether anything else could be done to prevent the attack and

:11:46.:11:49.

whether it is the last clear opportunity to do so. Undoubtedly,

:11:50.:11:54.

the UK government has the technology to carry out effective and deadly

:11:55.:11:58.

strikes that it must justify doing so within the limits of the law. Ben

:11:59.:12:01.

Bland, BBC News. The latest strike by Southern train

:12:02.:12:04.

drivers has entered a second day The walk-out is due to finish

:12:05.:12:07.

at midnight but four further strike Yesterday only 16 of over 2,000

:12:08.:12:12.

scheduled services ran. The dispute which has been

:12:13.:12:16.

going on for nearly ten months This next bit of footage

:12:17.:12:19.

is pretty extraordinary. The pictures come from a camera

:12:20.:12:28.

attached to the neck of a female polar bear and shows two bears

:12:29.:12:31.

breaking through ice sheets The US Geological Survey hopes it'll

:12:32.:12:35.

help researchers better understand how the animals are responding

:12:36.:12:42.

to declining sea ice levels. You can kind of workout what is

:12:43.:12:56.

happening there. Did you never polar bears only come together to make and

:12:57.:13:05.

it? And that's it? Lonely life. Not much you can say about that, is

:13:06.:13:12.

there? Anyway, moving on. Before you speak.

:13:13.:13:14.

Could this be the best trick shot of all time?

:13:15.:13:19.

A bar in Bristol has pulled off an incredible feat involving

:13:20.:13:25.

a golf club, two flights of stairs and ten pool tables.

:13:26.:13:28.

It's around 500ft long, took 11 hours to set up

:13:29.:13:35.

After travelling down the stairs, the ball is perfectly aimed to hit

:13:36.:13:40.

a succession of pool balls that cross between different tables

:13:41.:13:43.

Over a million people have watched the clip online.

:13:44.:13:52.

We will have the man who created it on the programme later

:13:53.:13:55.

on so you will have to wait until then to find out

:13:56.:13:58.

The best news is, we have them and who created it. There is a table set

:13:59.:14:08.

up over there. Which I would like to keep forever. No, I would like to

:14:09.:14:13.

keep it forever. And we have our own trick shot coming up. There is six

:14:14.:14:18.

balls to pot in each pocket and I have had one go, too goes and so

:14:19.:14:23.

far, I have got five out of six. Improvement required, is the answer.

:14:24.:14:25.

Anyway, we are excited about that. It's looking like a pub in the

:14:26.:14:33.

corner. Low-level lighting and a pool table. Very cosy and very nice

:14:34.:14:34.

indeed. Mariana Fellini having a late start,

:14:35.:14:48.

but doing his bit. It is coming to the business and now. They are on a

:14:49.:14:53.

bit of a run, finally. Things coming good for Jose Mourinho.

:14:54.:14:54.

Manchester United are a step closer to the League Cup Final.

:14:55.:14:57.

They beat Hull City 2-0 in the first leg of the semi-final

:14:58.:15:00.

but Wayne Rooney missed the chance to become

:15:01.:15:02.

Fifa president Gianni Infantino has told the BBC he thinks the quality

:15:03.:15:08.

of an expanded World Cup will improve as smaller nations get

:15:09.:15:12.

48 teams will contest the tournament from 2026.

:15:13.:15:16.

He said decision was not financially motivated.

:15:17.:15:24.

Lord Coe, the president of athletics world governing body the IAAF,

:15:25.:15:27.

will be asked to give more evidence to MP's as part of their inquiry

:15:28.:15:30.

It's after a former athlete told a committee he had called

:15:31.:15:35.

and e-mailed Coe to warn him about the scandal.

:15:36.:15:37.

And after almost 150 years of horse-racing,

:15:38.:15:39.

Kempton Park is set to be closed to make way for around

:15:40.:15:42.

It's part of a plan to raise 500 million for British racing over

:15:43.:15:49.

And Jehanabad want to make -- Jehanabad on -- Johanna Konta is

:15:50.:16:09.

playing at the moment in Sydney. We will keep you up-to-date.

:16:10.:16:15.

You are the master! That have a look at the front pages

:16:16.:16:19.

of the papers this morning. The Times, Number 10 blames NHS chief as

:16:20.:16:24.

chaos grows in hospitals. We will have a look at that later today as

:16:25.:16:29.

we speak to a doctor. The picture is of the head of a gallery in

:16:30.:16:33.

Manchester, who is to become the Tate's first female director.

:16:34.:16:37.

The front page of the Telegraph. They talk about Jeremy Corbyn.

:16:38.:16:42.

Labour's migration policy in chaos. He reversed his position on free

:16:43.:16:47.

movement just after saying his party would oppose uncontrolled migration

:16:48.:16:51.

to the UK. Lots of things he said yesterday and the papers going

:16:52.:16:57.

through it. This is a rather lovely photograph. The Daily Telegraph

:16:58.:17:00.

reporter who broke the news, what an incredible thing to do, of Hitler's

:17:01.:17:06.

1939 invasion of Poland. She has died at the age of 105. An amazing

:17:07.:17:12.

picture, an amazing journalist. Inspirational. One more. The Daily

:17:13.:17:26.

Express has a picture of -10 at their main story, snow alert. Army

:17:27.:17:30.

on standby as Met Office worn extreme weather on the way.

:17:31.:17:37.

They love the Arctic blast! There is cold weather on the way.

:17:38.:17:44.

Can I show you this? This is my favourite story. Keeping with the

:17:45.:17:49.

call him. If you go down to Eastbourne to the shopping centre

:17:50.:17:53.

you will find it is still in full Christmas swing because they can't

:17:54.:17:56.

turn off the Christmas lights. The company that has installed them has

:17:57.:18:00.

gone bust. They plugged them into the mains, so if they want to turn

:18:01.:18:06.

off the Christmas lights they have to turn off all of the other lights

:18:07.:18:10.

in a shopping centre as well, so it means basically they are stuck with

:18:11.:18:13.

this Christmas lights unless everyone will shop in the dark.

:18:14.:18:20.

What an extraordinary story! Isn't it bad luck to have the lights on

:18:21.:18:26.

after the 12th? I probably wouldn't want to go down there in!

:18:27.:18:30.

I have Maria Sharapova in a lot of the papers. More accusations that

:18:31.:18:34.

the world of tennis is giving her special treatment. You will remember

:18:35.:18:37.

she was banned for 15 months for taking a banned substance. That ban

:18:38.:18:44.

runs out on the 26th of April, which is midway through the tournament,

:18:45.:18:48.

she has been given a wild card. They say as Belletti doesn't come to the

:18:49.:18:53.

site before April the 26th she can play her first match midway through

:18:54.:18:58.

the tournament. -- as long as she doesn't. So the schedule will be

:18:59.:19:01.

rearranged around her. That never goes down well. No, so a

:19:02.:19:07.

lot of complaints about how she did take a banned substance. She says

:19:08.:19:11.

she didn't know it was banned and she didn't need to do it and she has

:19:12.:19:15.

been banned for drugs cheating for 15 months. But there does seem to be

:19:16.:19:22.

a lot of... The organiser of this tournament has called it a fabulous

:19:23.:19:28.

present and a lot of the high profile sponsors have stood by her

:19:29.:19:34.

during the ban. I've lost my wedding ring on a beach

:19:35.:19:39.

and found it in a puddle, amazingly. Horrorstruck husband found himself

:19:40.:19:44.

facing real-life needle in a haystack. He lost his wedding ring

:19:45.:19:53.

in a barn full of straw and spent two weeks looking for it.

:19:54.:19:55.

And he found it! He used a metal detector. Mine comes

:19:56.:20:04.

off on my issue a lot. You know, when you take it. I think I've lost

:20:05.:20:09.

weight on my fingers for some reason.

:20:10.:20:12.

All of that dancing! That is some vigorous arm action.

:20:13.:20:18.

Quite a sight. This we need to see.

:20:19.:20:23.

There is so much interesting stuff to talk about in the weather.

:20:24.:20:27.

What's going on? For starters it is very windy. The highest gust we have

:20:28.:20:39.

seen overnight is 120 -- 129 mph. Today it is gales we are looking at.

:20:40.:20:43.

A very windy day, which could lead to some travel disruption. You can

:20:44.:20:47.

find out what's happening where you are on your BBC local radio station

:20:48.:20:51.

forced to there are some restrictions in places. We've got

:20:52.:20:57.

some wintry showers and sleet and slow across the moor of Scotland,

:20:58.:21:01.

towards the Central Lowlands. Some of that getting down to low levels.

:21:02.:21:06.

Blizzards in the hills. Hill snow in the Pennines and very windy. Windy

:21:07.:21:12.

across Northern Ireland, and Wales. Also windy in the Midlands and into

:21:13.:21:17.

east Anglia. Further south also windy, especially along the coast,

:21:18.:21:21.

but not as windy as further north. In the far north we have storm force

:21:22.:21:26.

winds. Elsewhere, severe gales or gales, to take extra care. The

:21:27.:21:33.

current drizzle we have will die out and we have sunshine coming through

:21:34.:21:36.

in England and Wales, but we hang onto the wintry showers are ignored.

:21:37.:21:40.

Overnight we get down to lower levels. Some getting to lower levels

:21:41.:21:45.

in northern England and Northern Ireland. Remember those showers. Too

:21:46.:21:50.

much wind for frost, but there will be ice to watch out for. Then we

:21:51.:21:55.

have the next system coming in from the west. This will be causing us a

:21:56.:21:59.

lot of headache, as to the positioning. Also pulling in strong

:22:00.:22:06.

winds from a cold direction, the north and north-west, so straight

:22:07.:22:10.

down from the Arctic. Where the cold air and rain in gauge is where we

:22:11.:22:14.

have snow. Initially tomorrow you can see it coming through Wales, the

:22:15.:22:19.

Moors, towards Salisbury Plains, and towards the south-east. Then

:22:20.:22:23.

eventually in evening it will push through the rest of east Anglia and

:22:24.:22:28.

into Kent. Then clearing into the near continent. Not all of us will

:22:29.:22:33.

necessarily see this. Some of us could have up to two centimetres of

:22:34.:22:38.

snow, some of us locally up to ten centimetres. That's the south. In

:22:39.:22:43.

the north, if we go back in time a little bit, we continue with wintry

:22:44.:22:46.

showers again, sleet and snow, some to lower levels, under and lightning

:22:47.:22:52.

as well. We were talking about thunder and snow yesterday. Entry

:22:53.:22:56.

showers across northern England and Northern Ireland. You will see some

:22:57.:23:00.

of those wintry showers also at lower levels as we mentioned. You

:23:01.:23:06.

will notice tomorrow in the wind it will feel cold. Despite the fact

:23:07.:23:11.

that temperatures are above freezing for most of us it will feel below

:23:12.:23:15.

freezing. So that's what tomorrow is like. You can see the back edge of

:23:16.:23:19.

this low pressure taking the snow with it. We then moved to a

:23:20.:23:23.

northerly wind. A cold direction for us. Still bringing in wintry

:23:24.:23:27.

showers. The other thing you will notice it will be very windy, with

:23:28.:23:33.

gales down the east coast. Any showers are likely to be wintry in

:23:34.:23:38.

nature again. But they are showers, so not all of us will see them. A

:23:39.:23:43.

mixture of rain, sleet and snow, but we have large waves and there is the

:23:44.:23:46.

risk of some minor coastal flooding. Something else to watch out for. A

:23:47.:23:51.

lot going on with the weather in the next couple of days.

:23:52.:23:54.

Thank you for that. Very windy this morning on my way to work.

:23:55.:23:59.

I do if you treat down on the roads as well. And we have some news about

:24:00.:24:03.

homes in Newcastle. 2300 homes without power due to high winds.

:24:04.:24:11.

They won't be able to hear that because we won't have their

:24:12.:24:13.

televisions on. We will keep you up-to-date. Thanks

:24:14.:24:17.

for being with us on this Wednesday morning.

:24:18.:24:18.

More needs to be done to help families living with dementia

:24:19.:24:21.

That's the finding of the first academic study looking at how

:24:22.:24:25.

the condition affects those in the countryside.

:24:26.:24:27.

It's called for more support services and training

:24:28.:24:30.

and help from the local community itself, as John Maguire has

:24:31.:24:33.

The bucolic duty of our rural landscapes and communities often

:24:34.:24:42.

mask some of the challenges of living here. The isolation, the lack

:24:43.:24:48.

of services and the scarcity of support. In the first report of its

:24:49.:24:52.

kind, limit university has studied the impact of dementia in the

:24:53.:24:56.

countryside and what should be done to help. -- Plymouth University.

:24:57.:25:01.

Things like support networks with other families who are going through

:25:02.:25:04.

a similar situation would be enormously helpful. Some of our

:25:05.:25:09.

family said, to help them cope. Perhaps not in the local area,

:25:10.:25:13.

perhaps somebody else upcountry so you don't have that public sort of

:25:14.:25:21.

-- that confidential allergies maintained. It isn't your

:25:22.:25:24.

neighbours. It affects the whole family. We are meeting this farmer

:25:25.:25:30.

and his mother. Her husband Eric had dementia for the last ten years of

:25:31.:25:34.

his life. The old adage is that farmers never retire, they keep

:25:35.:25:39.

going, and he certainly wanted... He still wanted to do what he could,

:25:40.:25:47.

but still had quite an impact on us, particularly from the carer side of

:25:48.:25:51.

it, because you are providing the care, mum. It started about 15 years

:25:52.:26:04.

ago and when Eric was diagnosed at least he went to daycare two days a

:26:05.:26:14.

week and that was a great help. The university report has several key

:26:15.:26:18.

recommendations, among them, where possible, farmers should plan ahead

:26:19.:26:23.

for serious illness. Councils, health and other agencies should

:26:24.:26:28.

co-ordinate to offer support and there should be more dementia

:26:29.:26:33.

awareness training. This memory cafe in the town of Ashburton is run by

:26:34.:26:39.

volunteers from the Rotary club. It offers in relation for patients and

:26:40.:26:42.

respite for carers and, elsewhere, there is a specialist -- specialist

:26:43.:26:49.

help available. Form filling, or farm inspections, just to make sure

:26:50.:26:53.

they aren't missing out financially as well, and we can also offer

:26:54.:26:57.

practical help on arms if they are struggling maybe to do tasks like TB

:26:58.:27:01.

testing. Our volunteers can make sure we can go on the farm and do

:27:02.:27:06.

practical things as well to help in the short term. Ian chairs the rule

:27:07.:27:10.

dementia group. It is simple solutions. Sometimes as a community

:27:11.:27:16.

or culture you go from radical strategies. Strategies went change

:27:17.:27:22.

this world, prime ministers won't, we will in our rural community and

:27:23.:27:26.

we will have to do it ourselves. Dementia can be cruel and

:27:27.:27:30.

devastating, this report says it doesn't have to be suffered in

:27:31.:27:31.

silence. Time now to get the news,

:27:32.:27:39.

travel and weather where you are. I'm back with the latest

:27:40.:27:42.

from the BBC London newsroom Hello, this is Breakfast

:27:43.:31:03.

with Dan Walker and Louise Minchin. We'll bring you all the latest news

The incredibly moving moment when the actor Jason Watkins

:31:33.:31:35.

dedicated his BAFTA to the memory of his daughter.

:31:36.:31:38.

We'll be speaking to Jason about bereavement and how he wants

And, over a million people have now watched this epic trick shot.

:31:49.:31:52.

The man who set it up will be here, complete with pool table,

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

The key thing is, they tried every single bit of that shot 120 times.

:32:04.:32:15.

We have tried powers... Twice. -- ours.

:32:16.:32:16.

Barack Obama has delivered his farewell address as US President.

:32:17.:32:18.

In an emotional speech in Chicago, he said he believed the country

:32:19.:32:22.

was in a better, stronger place than when he was first elected

:32:23.:32:25.

The President admitted progress had not gone far enough but called

:32:26.:32:29.

on the American people to put aside their differences and help

:32:30.:32:32.

I am asking you to hold fast to that faith written into our founding

:32:33.:32:45.

documents, the whisper by slaves and abolitionists, the song sung by

:32:46.:32:51.

Homestead is and those who marched for Justice, the creed reaffirmed by

those who planted flags from foreign battlefields to the surface of the

written. Yes, we can. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE. Killam yes we. -- yes, we

:33:09.:33:16.

can, yes, we did. We'll be speaking to US political

:33:17.:33:18.

analyst Eric Ham from Washington Overnight, another tweak happened.

:33:19.:33:45.

It was Donald Trump tweeting about fake news.

:33:46.:33:48.

Donald Trump says he is the victim of a "political

:33:49.:33:51.

witch hunt" after allegations against him were published

:33:52.:33:53.

Unconfirmed reports have emerged in the American media that Russian

:33:54.:33:57.

intelligence agencies have gathered compromising information

:33:58.:33:58.

In a Tweet, Mr Trump did not refer directly to the stories

:33:59.:34:03.

but complained fake news had been published.

:34:04.:34:07.

A 15-year-old girl has been charged with the murder

:34:08.:34:09.

Katie Rough died in hospital on Monday after being found

:34:10.:34:13.

with serious injuries near a playing field in the Woodthorpe area.

:34:14.:34:16.

The teenager is due to appear before magistrates later this morning.

:34:17.:34:24.

Senior doctors are warning that the crisis in the NHS

:34:25.:34:28.

and social care is putting people's lives at risk.

:34:29.:34:30.

In a letter to Theresa May, the Royal College of Physicians said

:34:31.:34:34.

a shortage of resources means the quality of patient care

:34:35.:34:36.

Charities working with elderly and disabled people have also

:34:37.:34:41.

written to the Prime Minister - calling for a long-term solution

He rejected a final chance to plead for his life,

telling the jury he felt he "had to carry it out".

A 29-year old British woman has been killed and two others are seriously

This next bit of footage is pretty extraordinary.

:35:50.:36:03.

Would you like to see what a polar bear Seve? -- sees.

:36:04.:36:10.

The pictures come from a camera attached to the neck of a female

:36:11.:36:14.

polar bear and shows two bears breaking through ice sheets

:36:15.:36:17.

The US Geological Survey hopes it'll help researchers better understand

:36:18.:36:21.

how the animals are responding to declining sea ice levels.

:36:22.:36:27.

Amazing. Do you want a polar bear facts? It is about their jaw

to bring back his big players As long as you are involved, it is

:37:40.:37:50.

the most important cup, as you can imagine. That is how we see it and

:37:51.:37:54.

so, it is Southampton, for example if you want to talk about intensity,

:37:55.:37:58.

they had a more intense time than we had so there is no advantage for one

:37:59.:38:03.

side. You have to find a way of playing.

:38:04.:38:03.

The Fifa President says expanding the World Cup will improve

:38:04.:38:06.

After a vote yesterday, an extra 16 teams will take part

:38:07.:38:11.

in 2026, making 48 in total, and Gianni Infantino believes bigger

:38:12.:38:14.

It is time to open to the world competition for the world. A

:38:15.:38:31.

celebration like the World Cup. It makes the world stand still and

:38:32.:38:36.

focus on an event. If we look at how football has developed in the last

:38:37.:38:40.

decade, the last years as well in particular, we can see that the

:38:41.:38:44.

quality of football has become higher and higher all over the

:38:45.:38:46.

world. 14-time Paralympic gold-medallist

:38:47.:38:50.

Dame Sarah Storey says paracycling's governing body WAS warned

:38:51.:38:52.

that seven weeks notice for the Track World

the event would take place in Los Angeles from March the second

:39:00.:39:03.

for a decision for a number of weeks and that athletes deserve

:39:04.:39:05.

records of one of his highest profile riders -

Sir Bradley Wiggins. It's regrettable, I think, but

:39:28.:39:40.

equally I think over the test of time, we will continue to perform at

the highest level in the right way and get people a reason to get

about the extent of Russian doping but former athlete Dave Bedford told

Barack Obama used his farewell address to set out what he regards

:41:33.:41:35.

as his major achievements during his eight years in office.

:41:36.:41:38.

We will cross over to Washington to assess his legacy in a moment,

:41:39.:41:41.

but first let's take a look at one of the key moments

:41:42.:41:44.

After my election, there was talk of a post- racial America and such a

:41:45.:42:00.

vision, however well intended, was never realistic. Race remains a

:42:01.:42:07.

potent and often divisive force in our society. Now, I have lived long

:42:08.:42:14.

enough to know that race relations are better than they were ten or 20

:42:15.:42:20.

or 30 years ago, no matter what some folks say. CHEERING AND APPLAUSE.

:42:21.:42:25.

You can see it not just in statistics, you see it in the

:42:26.:42:29.

attitudes of young Americans across the political spectrum.

:42:30.:42:30.

Joining us from Washington now is US political analyst Eric Ham.

:42:31.:42:35.

Good morning. Good to speak to you. I know you will have watched this

:42:36.:42:42.

closely. What do you think? Very interesting speech. He touched on so

:42:43.:42:46.

many areas. What will be his long-lasting legacy? It has to be

:42:47.:42:52.

that he was a trailblazer. I mean, we cannot deny the fact that he was

:42:53.:42:57.

the first African-American elected to the highest office in the land.

:42:58.:43:01.

You have two also remember that when he came into office, we were going

:43:02.:43:07.

through the greatest, I think, economic term that this country has

:43:08.:43:09.

ever seen since the Great Depression. We were haemorrhaging

:43:10.:43:14.

over 800,000 jobs per month. Barack Obama came in and single-handedly

:43:15.:43:18.

saved the automobile industry. He actually took us from a major job

:43:19.:43:24.

loss to now where we are actually bringing in new jobs into this

:43:25.:43:31.

country. He actually tried to be a unifier but he did didn't get the

:43:32.:43:39.

support from Congress. I think it will be seen as a trailblazer and

:43:40.:43:42.

make no mistake, history will be very kind to this president. He was

:43:43.:43:48.

also, in some ways, a call to arms. I have done this work and now it is

:43:49.:43:54.

over to you. It was. And also, too, one thing about Barack Obama, he

:43:55.:44:00.

has, I think, an amazing understanding and he believes in

:44:01.:44:03.

people. One thing about the speech today that came out very clear was

:44:04.:44:08.

that he believed democracy is on the brink and it needs to be pulled

:44:09.:44:12.

back. I believe that many of the statements he made were directed at

:44:13.:44:17.

Donald Trump and I do believe he wants to see an America reach its

:44:18.:44:22.

highest ideals, reach its full potential. I believe he thinks that

:44:23.:44:27.

with Donald Trump at the helm, that might be a problem. I think that

:44:28.:44:32.

this was not only a farewell speech at a rallying of the troops to say,

:44:33.:44:36.

look, there is much more work to be done. Let's also talk about the

:44:37.:44:42.

President elect. There is a breaking news, really, overnight, from

:44:43.:44:46.

America. It is about information that media reports have that the

:44:47.:44:49.

Russians may have on him. Can you explain to us what the latest

:44:50.:44:55.

revelation is? There is an intelligence briefing that he had

:44:56.:45:00.

last week with intelligence agencies and part of this briefing was a

:45:01.:45:07.

2-page dossier memo that suggested that maybe not Donald Trump directly

:45:08.:45:12.

but surrogates and aides of Donald Trump have been working and had

:45:13.:45:16.

maybe provided information to these aids and that some of them

:45:17.:45:23.

interacting with Russian embassies said they had damaging information

:45:24.:45:27.

on Donald Trump. None of this has been confirmed that it is something

:45:28.:45:35.

that is out there and I believe that given the fact the various

:45:36.:45:41.

intelligence agencies are long with the FBI are saying that Russia

:45:42.:45:46.

played a role in our election process, these latest allegations

:45:47.:45:51.

are something you will begin to see more senators, more congressmen,

:45:52.:45:55.

from both the Right and left, looking for and focusing more

:45:56.:46:02.

attention on and looking to investigate in a more in-depth and

:46:03.:46:05.

detailed way. Thank you for explaining it. Also Donald Trump,

:46:06.:46:11.

first thing Donald Trump tweets about is fake news.

:46:12.:46:16.

Fellini yes and this is something you have to understand about Trump

:46:17.:46:22.

and his team. Any time we bring up Russian hacking they see this as an

:46:23.:46:29.

opportunity to somehow dispute the notion that he's president or

:46:30.:46:33.

somehow that his is tainted. But many people accept that Donald Trump

:46:34.:46:37.

is the President-elect, but recognise that there are issues,

:46:38.:46:41.

there are problems, especially with Russia that need to be addressed. So

:46:42.:46:45.

I think that something that lawmakers are looking... And I think

:46:46.:46:50.

the intelligence community would like to see Donald Trump take a more

:46:51.:46:54.

proactive approach to addressing and I think only time will tell if he

:46:55.:46:58.

will do that. Thanks for your time, as always. You bet. Fascinating. I

:46:59.:47:06.

love the way American guests finish their interviews with "you bet".

:47:07.:47:08.

Here's Carol with a look at this morning's weather.

:47:09.:47:11.

It is one of those mornings where I could hear the weather before I saw

:47:12.:47:20.

it. Yes, and over the next few days some

:47:21.:47:24.

of us will have sleek and snow. We could have some icy roads to look

:47:25.:47:28.

out for. Gales is the story of the day. Very strong winds through the

:47:29.:47:33.

night. We still have them and will carry on with them. These are the

:47:34.:47:41.

latest bus. So if you are travelling this morning, do take extra care.

:47:42.:47:46.

There is likely to be some disruption. There is already in

:47:47.:47:50.

places. You could find branches down, et cetera. Across Scotland it

:47:51.:47:55.

is windy. Storm force in the north, severe gales. The black circles

:47:56.:48:01.

indicate the gust of wind come up plus wintry showers. We've got a

:48:02.:48:06.

rain showers and windy across Northern Ireland. Some snow showers

:48:07.:48:09.

and fairly windy across northern England. India -- windy along the

:48:10.:48:15.

coastal approaches. Still windy in the south of England, are not as

:48:16.:48:19.

windy as everywhere else. Through the day as well as the wind the

:48:20.:48:23.

cloud will break up and we will have sunshine. As it turned colder

:48:24.:48:27.

through the day we will have wintry showers, even getting down to lower

:48:28.:48:31.

levels. The highest temperatures are coming down as we go through the

:48:32.:48:36.

day. In the evening and overnight there will be the risk of ice on

:48:37.:48:39.

untreated surfaces. Wintry showers more prolific in Scotland. Then

:48:40.:48:43.

another batch comes in across Northern Ireland. A lot of this in

:48:44.:48:47.

the hills. Sleet and snow at lower levels as well. Then we've got the

:48:48.:48:52.

next system coming in across the south-west. This is problematic. The

:48:53.:48:58.

exact positioning is important because as it engages with the cold,

:48:59.:49:02.

Arctic air that's where we are likely to see snow. This is what we

:49:03.:49:06.

think at the moment, as it could drift further south. Tomorrow a lot

:49:07.:49:09.

of rain, the risk of flooding locally. It comes in across Wales,

:49:10.:49:15.

the Moors, towards the Home Counties, across London, the

:49:16.:49:20.

south-east and towards Kent. But it could be a little bit further south.

:49:21.:49:24.

Some of us see up to two centimetres of snow. Locally, ten centimetres.

:49:25.:49:32.

Variable. In the north we've got snow showers packing in across

:49:33.:49:34.

Scotland, northern England and Northern Ireland. Some of them at

:49:35.:49:37.

lower levels. Blizzards in the mountains. But showers, so not all

:49:38.:49:43.

of us will see them. In between there will be sunshine, but it will

:49:44.:49:48.

feel cold. Wherever you are, although temperatures are the

:49:49.:49:51.

freezing, for most of us it will feel more like low freezing. As we

:49:52.:49:56.

head on through the rest of Thursday and into Friday there goes the low

:49:57.:50:00.

pressure, taking the snow away from it. The wind moves to a northerly

:50:01.:50:05.

and with a north-westerly component. In the Friday a lot of dry weather

:50:06.:50:10.

around. Any showers are likely to be wintry in nature. The thing up large

:50:11.:50:14.

waves in the wind. Some parts of eastern England could see some

:50:15.:50:19.

localised coastal flooding. So a lot going on. There really is. Thank

:50:20.:50:25.

you. It is affecting things out and about as well. There was a lorry

:50:26.:50:32.

crash on a bridge. High winds reported in the area. Drivers being

:50:33.:50:37.

asked to take alternative routes this morning. It will cause

:50:38.:50:41.

difficulty and traffic issues this morning. We will keep you

:50:42.:50:47.

up-to-date. Also, many of you may have been kept awake last night

:50:48.:50:52.

worrying about money. I went straight to sleep, actually,

:50:53.:50:58.

but it is on many people's minds. I do concern myself with it on other

:50:59.:51:01.

occasions. Straight, sound asleep. I was kept

:51:02.:51:06.

awake by the wind last night. Yes, it is in the wind are good sleep

:51:07.:51:11.

that is worrying many people. It is money and it's a study from nearly

:51:12.:51:16.

2000 staff showing it isn't just people on the waiting comes that are

:51:17.:51:18.

worried about money. Charles Cotton's team did this

:51:19.:51:23.

research and he's with me. You've done this study, looking at

:51:24.:51:30.

the fact that people have been kept awake last night, worry -- worrying

:51:31.:51:34.

about what they are earning. Let's take a look at some

:51:35.:51:36.

of the main points coming out A fifth of those worried

:51:37.:51:39.

about their money It has got to that stage? Yes, in

:51:40.:51:50.

total about one in four employees said that money concerns was

:51:51.:51:54.

impacting their ability to do their job, by the lack of sleep or just

:51:55.:51:59.

not able to focus at work or taking time out of the office to deal with

:52:00.:52:03.

money concerns. To be clear, these are people who are already working,

:52:04.:52:07.

so not someone worried about getting a job. People who are in work,

:52:08.:52:12.

worried about being paid enough? Yes, being paid enough to kind of

:52:13.:52:18.

meet basic living standards and whether they are being awarded

:52:19.:52:22.

fairly, in comparison to their work colleagues or whether they have the

:52:23.:52:25.

opportunity to save for their futures. It had a look -- have a

:52:26.:52:29.

look at who is affected. A third of 18-24-year-olds

:52:30.:52:35.

are reporting cash-flow concerns. They are worried they aren't being

:52:36.:52:45.

paid enough. Yes, it might be young people, some might be students so

:52:46.:52:48.

they are worried about student debts, also getting onto the

:52:49.:52:51.

property ladder or saving for a deposit, or saving for their future

:52:52.:52:57.

pension. And it isn't people who are just on low incomes that are most

:52:58.:53:02.

concerned, it is everybody and especially those who are earning a

:53:03.:53:07.

substantial amount of money are still worrying whether it's enough.

:53:08.:53:11.

Even high earners have money problems, but there is a case of not

:53:12.:53:15.

so much the amount of money but finding time to manage their

:53:16.:53:19.

finances, finding time to get the best deals and understanding how it

:53:20.:53:26.

has been used. We've seen a lot of initiatives, like the national

:53:27.:53:29.

minimum wage, all that sort of thing, to address people at the

:53:30.:53:33.

bottom of the scale. What can firms be doing? It isn't just a case of

:53:34.:53:36.

paying people more. Obviously, especially at this time of economic

:53:37.:53:42.

uncertainty, any firms perhaps don't have the money anyway to increase

:53:43.:53:45.

salaries, but there are steps they can take. One is to look at training

:53:46.:53:49.

and development opportunities for employees, to have skills to

:53:50.:53:53.

progress up the career ladder. It is looking at how they can make their

:53:54.:53:58.

employees be more financially sound by giving them access to financial

:53:59.:54:02.

advice and information and guidance and finally it is perhaps going

:54:03.:54:06.

around and doing local deals with firms in your area, yet discounts

:54:07.:54:12.

for your staff from hairdressers, from local clinics, the gym, things

:54:13.:54:17.

like that, the -- to help spread the money better. Very interesting.

:54:18.:54:23.

Rank you. More from me after 7am when we will get the results from

:54:24.:54:28.

Sainsbury's. I will have the details in about minutes.

:54:29.:54:33.

Thank you. Later this morning we have a treat. At about 7:50am...

:54:34.:54:44.

Pool cues in honour of what has been dubbed the best trick show ever.

:54:45.:54:49.

It has been watched online by the 1 million people and involves a golf

:54:50.:54:54.

club, two flights of stairs, ten tables and a roll along a bar.

:54:55.:54:58.

Before you get to see us attempt out predict pretty full effort, here is

:54:59.:54:59.

a quick. -- pretty pitiful effort. Did it go in?

:55:00.:56:20.

You will have to watch later. Do you think they would be playing

:56:21.:56:25.

it if it didn't? The good news is that we are never

:56:26.:56:30.

short of ambition here on BBC Breakfast. We will try the same.

:56:31.:56:35.

Slightly more limited. We've got six balls and the white on the table. We

:56:36.:56:40.

will try to pot all of those later, but their effort was incredible.

:56:41.:56:46.

Powers to set up, 120 times they tried each one of those and in the

:56:47.:56:49.

end they produced something that's been watched by millions of people.

:56:50.:56:53.

We will have one of the creators in later. I was hoping it might roll

:56:54.:56:55.

around the sofa. Time now to get the news,

had not gone far enough as our US correspondent

Laura Trevelyan now reports. Barack Obama returned to Chicago,

the effort was worthwhile. I thought it was very uplifting and

it gave up a message of hope -- that gave us a message. It was what we

:04:46.:04:49.

needed to hear right now. Leigh we had a tough election and we just

:04:50.:04:53.

need to keep fighting for the courses. Barack Obama's supporters

were hardened by his uplifting message to night and he leaves

I thought it was very uplifting and it gave us a message of hope --

has been made but we must project does not protect our rights.

agencies have embarrassing information about the

:06:09.:06:10.

President-elect Donald Trump that is personally compromising.

:06:11.:06:12.

US media is reporting this quoting unnamed

They are also reporting that US intelligence agencies that done

with Mr Trump privately and told them about this allegation is that

:06:22.:06:24.

apparently Russian spy agencies have.

:06:25.:06:28.

Mr Trump has responded in his signature way,

:06:29.:06:30.

on Twitter, he said fake news and it's a political

:06:31.:06:33.

Remember that Donald Trump is in hot water in Washington

:06:34.:06:36.

Senior doctors are warning that a shortage of resources may leave

:07:23.:07:25.

the NHS in England unable to cope with this winter's demand.

:07:26.:07:30.

In a letter to Theresa May, the Royal College of Physicians said

:07:31.:07:33.

the quality of patient care is under threat.

:07:34.:07:35.

Charities working with elderly and disabled people

:07:36.:07:37.

have also written to the Prime Minister -

:07:38.:07:39.

calling for a long-term solution to funding for health

:07:40.:07:42.

Here's our Health correspondent Robert Pigott.

:07:43.:07:44.

The Royal College of Physicians said ambulances queueing outside

:07:45.:07:46.

hospitals were visual testament to the crisis in the NHS.

:07:47.:07:52.

The Royal College, which represents 33,000 specialist hospital doctors,

:07:53.:07:55.

said patients faced lengthening waits on lists, on trolleys,

:07:56.:08:00.

in accident and emergency departments and at home.

:08:01.:08:02.

It blamed a shortage of qualified staff, stretched too thin lead

:08:03.:08:05.

Our members fear that people's lives are at risk because they can't get

round to see the patients that aren't yet in the emergency

:08:13.:08:15.

department or indeed are waiting for results to come back.

:08:16.:08:18.

Members and fellows have been writing in and our council members

:08:19.:08:21.

specifically have said to me this is the worst they have ever seen.

:08:22.:08:26.

Most urgent, said the doctors, is investment in social care

:08:27.:08:29.

to prevent medically fit patients being trapped in hospitals.

:08:30.:08:32.

In their own letter to the Prime Minister,

:08:33.:08:35.

75 charities and individuals working in health and social care said

:08:36.:08:39.

there must be a long-term cross-party solution

:08:40.:08:41.

to what they called the crisis in funding.

:08:42.:08:47.

Led by the charity Independent Age, they said:

:08:48.:08:56.

The Department of Health said it had invested ?10 billion

:08:57.:08:59.

to develop health services and relieve pressure on hospitals.

:09:00.:09:01.

And, since last year, had recruited 3,000 extra nurses

:09:02.:09:04.

Meanwhile, plans to extend access to GPs in England are in "complete

:09:05.:09:25.

disarray" according to the British Medical Association.

:09:26.:09:27.

The comment follows a report by the National Audit Office

:09:28.:09:29.

which urges ministers to reconsider plans to increase

:09:30.:09:32.

weekend and evening access to family doctors in England.

:09:33.:09:34.

It says many GPs are already struggling to provide existing

:09:35.:09:37.

The Department of Health says it's promised additional funding

:09:38.:09:39.

A white supremacist, Dylann Roof, has been sentenced to death

:09:40.:09:47.

for the racist killing of nine black men and women at a church

:09:48.:09:51.

The 22-year-old opened fire during a bible studies class.

:09:52.:09:54.

He rejected a final chance to plead for his life,

:09:55.:09:57.

telling the jury he felt he "had to carry it out".

:09:58.:10:13.

In the last moments, we heard about how supermarkets have done. Today,

:10:14.:10:22.

Sainsbury's. We heard about how they did over the important Christmas

:10:23.:10:26.

period. Bainbridge told us that sales were up by 0.1%. Compare that

:10:27.:10:31.

to the 2.90 suggested they. You start to get a picture of it. Same

:10:32.:10:36.

breeze, to be clear, up 0.1% over the Christmas period. It also is at

:10:37.:10:46.

Argus, they did very well. They did well at things like Black Friday and

:10:47.:10:51.

all the discounts before the Christmas period. Good news for

:10:52.:10:55.

them. If you look at Sainsbury's, sales of clothing did well. It was

:10:56.:11:01.

up by 10%. They have talked already a about the warning, a similar

:11:02.:11:05.

warning we got yesterday from Morrisons and we have had it also

:11:06.:11:09.

from Next, prices going up in the New Year. They are worried about the

:11:10.:11:14.

devaluation in the pound and what it means for stuff we buy overseas.

:11:15.:11:17.

They say the market is very competitive and the devaluation of

:11:18.:11:27.

the pound. Sales up 0.1% and up 4% at Argus. More during the week as

:11:28.:11:37.

for us but also easier That is the warning

Jeremy Wright QC, will now explain for the first time how

such decisions are made. The considerations include how

certain it is that an attack will happen, how soon it

will be and on what scale. Whether anything else could be done

:12:49.:12:51.

to prevent the attack and whether it is the last clear

Jeremy Hunt suggested that target may have to be relaxed -

have disputed claims from the Red Cross that there

there were "huge pressures" on the health service

Medicine. morning. Thank you so much for your

:15:23.:15:35.

time. You work in this industry. Tell us what emergency is like at

:15:36.:15:38.

the moment for you and your staff. It is very pressured. We have

:15:39.:15:45.

reports from all around the country, that people can't offload people

:15:46.:15:48.

from ambulances. People are working under huge pressure. They aren't

:15:49.:15:53.

able to give the care they want to. People are being treated in

:15:54.:15:56.

corridors and even when people are being assessed they have a long way

:15:57.:16:00.

to get into the hospital. How does it make you feel when you hear

:16:01.:16:03.

stories about people waiting on trolleys for 12 hours? When we hear

:16:04.:16:07.

them we think, how can that happen? When you as a doctor here that, how

:16:08.:16:14.

does that make you feel? It is demoralising. People want to be able

:16:15.:16:17.

to go to work and do the best possible job they can. That means

:16:18.:16:21.

treating them in an environment that is dignified and supportive. If you

:16:22.:16:26.

are looking after someone in a trolley it is actually really

:16:27.:16:29.

demoralising if they are waiting there and you walk past them and

:16:30.:16:32.

they are still there all the time. It has a very corrosive effect on

:16:33.:16:36.

morale and resilience. Giving the Red -- given what you have said, do

:16:37.:16:44.

you think what the Red Cross have said is an over exaggeration? It is

:16:45.:16:48.

certainly a crisis and this has been building for a number of years. It

:16:49.:16:52.

is particularly acute at this time of year when we have had

:16:53.:16:58.

accommodation of a cold snap, possibly some flu going around and

:16:59.:17:01.

all the pressures of the winter break. But this isn't something that

:17:02.:17:05.

has come out of the blue. We spoke to Jeremy Hunt on Monday and later

:17:06.:17:10.

on that day he spoke about the four-hour waiting time at emergency.

:17:11.:17:14.

Would you be in favour of the changes he has suggested? The thing

:17:15.:17:17.

that is a good way forward? Absolutely not. We are generally

:17:18.:17:26.

very behind the four-hour target. Just because you don't like the

:17:27.:17:29.

result doesn't mean you can't change the rules of the game. It isn't a

:17:30.:17:34.

perfect standard by any means, but it's a useful standard. Trying to

:17:35.:17:41.

say you will only apply it to selected people wouldn't work. If

:17:42.:17:45.

you actually applied it to the people who need it most, the people

:17:46.:17:48.

coming to hospital, the sick, very ill and people with conflicts needs,

:17:49.:17:52.

the performance would drop very much. -- complex needs. People who

:17:53.:17:59.

shouldn't be there are actually treated very quickly and easily. We

:18:00.:18:04.

think they are a bit less than 30% of the workflow, but not 30% of the

:18:05.:18:08.

total work we have to give those people. It is more like 5%. What

:18:09.:18:13.

changes would you make if you could, especially to emergency? We need to

:18:14.:18:19.

create an environment where it makes it better for people to go to work

:18:20.:18:23.

and give good care. We need urgently to have more beds within the

:18:24.:18:27.

hospitals and within social care systems, so we don't... We can

:18:28.:18:31.

actually get patients promptly from an emergency department into

:18:32.:18:35.

hospital. Where do those beds come from? Is that extra funding, a

:18:36.:18:39.

change to the system? Absolutely extra funding. With that letter

:18:40.:18:46.

today about the problems we are seeing in hospitals, they are spot

:18:47.:18:50.

on. We need more funding and also for social care. Actually getting

:18:51.:18:56.

patients out of hospital, safely and properly into the right sort of

:18:57.:19:00.

care, will have huge benefits. We appreciate your time this morning.

:19:01.:19:06.

Lots of you will have noticed it was pretty windy last night.

:19:07.:19:09.

Here's Carol with a look at this morning's weather.

:19:10.:19:12.

Good morning. In the next 24 hours what we are looking at is sleet and

:19:13.:19:22.

snow for some of us. Some of us have this already. Icy roads and also

:19:23.:19:27.

gables. Gail is what we have today. It could lead to travel disruption.

:19:28.:19:31.

It has already. Some temperatures have restrictions. Watch out for

:19:32.:19:36.

some branches of trees careering down the road. The black circles

:19:37.:19:42.

indicate the wind gusts. Across Scotland, storm force in the north,

:19:43.:19:47.

severe gales. Blizzards in the hills. Across Northern Ireland it is

:19:48.:19:53.

rain showers. Very windy. Northern England, especially the Pennines.

:19:54.:19:59.

Watch out on the M62 for example. Windy around the coasts, with

:20:00.:20:03.

showers. Windy in the Midlands and into east Anglia. Southern England

:20:04.:20:07.

isn't as windy as it is further north. It will remain windy as we go

:20:08.:20:11.

through the day. The snow showers continue across Scotland. Sleet and

:20:12.:20:17.

snow, some in the lower levels. But they are showers, so not all of us

:20:18.:20:21.

will see them. Maximum temperatures going down. Through the evening and

:20:22.:20:26.

overnight there is the risk of some ice on untreated surfaces. If

:20:27.:20:31.

anything the snow showers become more prolific in Northern Ireland,

:20:32.:20:37.

more than England and Wales. Then the next troublemaker comes in. The

:20:38.:20:41.

low pressure is moving from the west towards this. There is still an

:20:42.:20:45.

element of doubt as to how far north it grows and that's important

:20:46.:20:49.

because as the rain engages with the cold, Arctic air that's when we are

:20:50.:20:52.

likely to see snow. Before that happens a lot of rain will push

:20:53.:20:56.

across the south, which could lead to surface water, and then here

:20:57.:21:00.

comes the snow across South Wales, the Moors, heading eastwards across

:21:01.:21:04.

southern counties into the Midlands, through London, east Anglia and

:21:05.:21:08.

taught the south coast. Later that will push away through Kent. The

:21:09.:21:13.

snow might be further south. So don't make this the last weather

:21:14.:21:17.

forecast you watch. Some could get two centimetres, some ten

:21:18.:21:22.

centimetres. At the other end of the country, for Scotland, Northern

:21:23.:21:26.

Ireland and England, mostly showers. I'm getting into north Wales as

:21:27.:21:32.

well. We will see the showers at lower levels. Again, winds starting

:21:33.:21:36.

to ease, what atrocious conditions on the hills and mountains. In

:21:37.:21:39.

between that dry and relatively bright. Wherever you are it will

:21:40.:21:45.

feel cold. The wind will accentuate that chilly feel, so for many it

:21:46.:21:49.

will feel freezing. Then pushes into near continent on Thursday. The wind

:21:50.:21:59.

moves to a northerly and then we have gales coming down and the risk

:22:00.:22:02.

of some localised coastal flooding. Lots going on. A busy time. Thank

:22:03.:22:09.

you. Like you say, don't make that the last weather report you watch

:22:10.:22:12.

because it is changing all the time. We will have another one in half an

:22:13.:22:15.

hour. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

:22:16.:22:15.

will today visit a centre run by a charity which supports

:22:16.:22:18.

bereaved parents. Prince William is Royal patron

:22:19.:22:22.

of Child Bereavement UK, which also offers help to children

:22:23.:22:24.

who have experienced the death Graham Satchell has

:22:25.:22:27.

been to meet a family You may find some of the details

:22:28.:22:30.

in this report upsetting. She was kind of like my lifeline. If

:22:31.:22:50.

I got moody with her dad, she would be like, come on, ma'am, snap out of

:22:51.:22:57.

it. She was headstrong. -- mum. She was full of life, full of smiles.

:22:58.:23:06.

She knew me better than any myself. Olivia died six years ago after an

:23:07.:23:10.

asthma attack at school. She was just eight. We both didn't know what

:23:11.:23:19.

to do or what to say to one another. It was just thinking why? Why did it

:23:20.:23:28.

happen? I didn't want to cry in front of the wife and kids. I had to

:23:29.:23:33.

be strong for the rest of the family. Such a cheeky smile. Very

:23:34.:23:40.

cheeky smile. How do you cope with the death of a child, a daughter,

:23:41.:23:48.

sister? We were what I would call a normal family and the biggest thing,

:23:49.:23:54.

it will always stick in my mind, is the fact that Darren turns around to

:23:55.:24:01.

Kayley and says it is OK to cry for your sister.

:24:02.:24:09.

And she says, no, it's OK for you to cry. It is very hard. For years you

:24:10.:24:29.

were two peas in a pod. The family has struggled. Struggled to talk to

:24:30.:24:33.

each other, struggled with friends who didn't know what to say and then

:24:34.:24:36.

drifted away. But they have had hoped, counselling from the charity

:24:37.:24:41.

Child Bereavement UK. Many of the families that we see at Child

:24:42.:24:45.

Bereavement UK do talk about the sense of loneliness and isolation

:24:46.:24:48.

that comes from grief and I think we have to chip away at this taboo and

:24:49.:24:54.

try and help decrease the isolation that bereaved families so often

:24:55.:24:58.

feel. I'm not one that likes to show my feelings, but coming here was a

:24:59.:25:05.

bit awkward at first. At the time my sister died I was going through at

:25:06.:25:08.

that stage myself, with getting bullied and self harming, invite

:25:09.:25:13.

that. -- things like that. Me self harming was my way of coping, to

:25:14.:25:19.

take it out on me, not anyone else. I am slowly getting there, just

:25:20.:25:24.

trying to get my life back on track. When I think back to how everything

:25:25.:25:31.

was, even on the day of Olivia's death we weren't actually there for

:25:32.:25:34.

each other. When we started having sessions together, I mean, to be

:25:35.:25:40.

honest that was the only time we actually spoke to each other or

:25:41.:25:45.

actually knew how each other felt. Counselling has helped but their

:25:46.:25:51.

lives will never be the same. I still think I haven't really grieved

:25:52.:25:56.

properly. There's always song, there's always a film, or there's

:25:57.:26:02.

always something that said that you never forget.

:26:03.:26:09.

Thank you very much to the family for sharing their story with us.

:26:10.:26:13.

That was Graham Satchell reporting there.

:26:14.:26:17.

And later in the programme the actor Jason Watkins will be here to talk

:26:18.:26:20.

about the challenges he and his family faced

:26:21.:26:22.

when they lost their daughter six years ago.

:26:23.:26:25.

Clearly tough to talk about, but important to talk about.

:26:26.:26:30.

What beds have you got? The minute we have bed problems, usually due to

:26:31.:26:42.

people not being able to leave the hospital at the other end, then we

:26:43.:26:44.

end up in this state. At a time

:26:45.:26:46.

of unprecedented pressure for the NHS, the BBC has spent six

:26:47.:26:48.

weeks filming inside one We will be there throughout the

:30:20.:30:28.

and sport in a moment, Barack Obama has delivered his

:30:29.:30:32.

farewell speech. In an emotional speech in Chicago,

:30:33.:30:46.

he said he believed the country was in a better, stronger place

:30:47.:30:49.

than when he was first elected The President admitted progress had

:30:50.:30:52.

not gone far enough but called on the American people to put

:30:53.:30:56.

aside their differences and help I am asking you to hold fast to that

:30:57.:30:59.

faith written into our founding documents, that ideal whisper

:31:00.:31:04.

by slaves and abolitionists, that spirit sung by immigrants

:31:05.:31:06.

homesteaders and those who marched for justice, that creed reaffirmed

:31:07.:31:09.

by those who planted flags from foreign battlefields

legacy with a panel of experts on US Meanwhile, Donald Trump says

:31:19.:31:36.

he is the victim of a "political witch hunt" after allegations

:31:37.:31:47.

against him were published Unconfirmed reports have emerged

:31:48.:31:50.

in the American media that Russian intelligence agencies have

:31:51.:31:53.

gathered compromising information In a Tweet, Mr Trump did not refer

:31:54.:31:55.

directly to the stories but complained fake news

:31:56.:31:59.

had been published. These latest allegations are

:32:00.:32:09.

something that I think you will begin to see more senators, more

:32:10.:32:13.

congressmen, from both the right and left, looking for and focusing more

:32:14.:32:20.

attention on and looking to investigate in a more in-depth and

:32:21.:32:22.

detailed way. A 15-year-old girl has been

:32:23.:32:24.

charged with the murder Katie Rough died in hospital

:32:25.:32:26.

on Monday after being found with serious injuries near a playing

:32:27.:32:30.

field in the Woodthorpe area. The teenager is due to appear before

:32:31.:32:33.

magistrates later this morning. Senior doctors are warning

:32:34.:32:39.

that the crisis in the NHS and social care is putting

:32:40.:32:41.

people's lives at risk. In a letter to Theresa May,

:32:42.:32:44.

the Royal College of Physicians said a shortage of resources means

:32:45.:32:47.

the quality of patient care Charities working with elderly

:32:48.:32:50.

and disabled people have also written to the Prime Minister -

:32:51.:32:53.

calling for a long-term solution to funding for health

:32:54.:32:56.

and social care. The Department of Health says it's

:32:57.:32:58.

investing ?10-billion Same breeze is the latest

:32:59.:33:11.

supermarket trip which is Christmas results.

:33:12.:33:16.

-- Sainsbury's. They reported growth in clothing but down in food.

:33:17.:33:35.

Tesco's is publishing best tomorrow. -- theirs.

:33:36.:33:41.

The pictures come from a camera attached to the neck of a female

:33:42.:33:44.

polar bear and shows two bears breaking through ice sheets

:33:45.:33:47.

The US Geological Survey hopes it'll help researchers better understand

:33:48.:33:51.

how the animals are responding to declining sea ice levels.

:33:52.:33:54.

Fantastic pictures. I then have any more polar bear facts. I don't think

:33:55.:34:02.

you are very impressed with my last one. That's not true! I was going to

:34:03.:34:09.

say the one at about them being left-handed but that has been proved

:34:10.:34:14.

untrue. They use both hands. Beattie Goad! I loved that! I did not know

:34:15.:34:23.

that. -- is there you go. This is amazing.

:34:24.:34:29.

Could this be the best trick shot of all time?

:34:30.:34:32.

A bar in Bristol has pulled off an incredible feat involving

:34:33.:34:35.

a golf club, two flights of stairs and ten pool tables.

:34:36.:34:38.

It's around 500ft long, took 11 hours to set up

:34:39.:34:41.

After travelling down the stairs, the ball is perfectly aimed to hit

:34:42.:34:45.

a succession of pool balls that cross between different tables

:34:46.:34:48.

Millions of people have watched the clip online.

:34:49.:34:53.

We will have the man who created it on the programme later

:34:54.:34:57.

on so you will have to wait until then to find out

:34:58.:35:00.

We will be doing our own trick later on. It is most likely to go wrong. I

:35:01.:35:21.

will hand it to you. This is my moment.

:35:22.:35:28.

In the meantime, cat. I think you should step up. There is the

:35:29.:35:42.

challenge. BBC breakfast presenters trying to pull trick shots.

:35:43.:35:46.

Manchester United will take a 2-0 advantage into the second leg

:35:47.:35:49.

of their EFL Cup Semi-Final against Hull City.

:35:50.:35:51.

Wayne Rooney couldn't find the goal which would have made him

:35:52.:35:54.

United's all time top scorer but Juan Mata put them ahead

:35:55.:35:57.

The second came late on when Marouane Fellaini headed

:35:58.:36:00.

Liverpool go to Southampton for the first leg of

:36:01.:36:16.

Jurgen Klopp was criticised for the young team he fielded

:36:17.:36:20.

in the FA Cup but is expected to bring back his big players

:36:21.:36:24.

As long as you are involved, it is the most important Cup,

:36:25.:36:28.

That is how we see it and so, Southampton, for example,

:36:29.:36:32.

if you want to talk about intensity, they had a more intense time

:36:33.:36:35.

than we had so there is no advantage for one side.

:36:36.:36:38.

The Fifa President says expanding the World Cup will improve

:36:39.:36:46.

After a vote yesterday, an extra 16 teams will take part

:36:47.:36:51.

in 2026, making 48 in total, and Gianni Infantino believes bigger

:36:52.:36:54.

It's time to open to the world a competition like the World Cup,

:36:55.:37:04.

a celebration of football like the World Cup.

:37:05.:37:06.

The competition that makes the world stand still and focus on an event.

:37:07.:37:10.

If we look at how football has developed in the last decades,

:37:11.:37:13.

the last years as well in particular, we can see

:37:14.:37:16.

that the quality of football has become higher and higher

:37:17.:37:19.

England's cricketers will support Alastair Cook whether he decides

:37:20.:37:25.

to continue as Captain of the test team or not.

:37:26.:37:28.

That's according to Haseeb Hameed who opened alongside Cook

:37:29.:37:36.

14-time Paralympic gold-medallist Dame Sarah Storey says paracycling's

:37:37.:37:38.

governing body WAS warned that seven weeks notice

:37:39.:37:40.

for the Track World Championships was not enough.

:37:41.:37:42.

The UCI announced yesterday the event would take place

:37:43.:37:45.

Sir Dave Brailsford has been criticised for some of his answers

to those investigating wrongdoing in the sport,

including questions over the medical records of one of his highest

profile riders - Sir Bradley Wiggins.

:38:13.:38:14.

It's regrettable, I think, but equally I think,

:38:15.:38:17.

over the test of time, we will continue to perform

:38:18.:38:19.

at the highest level in the right way and get people a reason to get

:38:20.:38:23.

behind us and feel proud of our achievements and give them

a team they can believe in and support.

Lord Coe, the president of athletics world governing body the IAAF,

:38:33.:38:35.

will be asked to give more evidence to MP's as part of their inquiry

:38:36.:38:38.

Coe told a Select Committee in December 2015 that he was unaware

:38:39.:38:43.

of any specific allegations about the extent of Russian doping

:38:44.:38:45.

but former athlete Dave Bedford told the same committee yesterday,

:38:46.:38:48.

that he'd called and e-mailed Coe to warn him about the scandal.

inspection. But, we need more houses. On such a historical piece

:40:13.:40:19.

of sporting landscape, isn't it? We both took a breath at the same

:40:20.:40:27.

time then. We've heard a lot about

:40:28.:40:30.

the pressures the NHS is facing this winter and the strain

:40:31.:40:33.

that doctors and nurses BBC cameras were allowed to film

:40:34.:40:53.

inside and to see the pressures they are under. She has had two lines of

times. Seven men with guns have gone into a building and someone is not

:41:10.:41:14.

leaving. What beds have you got from it? The minute we have bad problems

:41:15.:41:20.

might usually due to patients not being able to leave the hospital at

:41:21.:41:25.

the other end, we end up in this state. Oh. What have we got that can

:41:26.:41:31.

come out? So much. Tim Muffett is live this morning

:41:32.:41:38.

from St Mary's hospital in Paddington which

:41:39.:41:41.

features in the series. This offers so so much insight. This

:41:42.:42:01.

is St Mary 's in Paddington. Vascular surgeon, Richard, weighty

:42:02.:42:07.

"A good idea to allow cameras inside? -- why did you think it was

:42:08.:42:15.

a good idea? It was good to give people an idea of how difficult

:42:16.:42:20.

decisions are made. We are working and challenging circumstances at the

:42:21.:42:24.

moment, throughout the NHS, it's fair to say. It hopefully offers

:42:25.:42:29.

people an idea that people take very considered, very careful decisions

:42:30.:42:34.

about how to make hospitals run when they are under a lot of pressure. We

:42:35.:42:38.

will look at another clip. In this clip with EU and another surgeon

:42:39.:42:44.

effectively competing to provide a bed to different patients. -- we see

:42:45.:42:53.

you. I think the thing is, we haven't got a lot of choice because

:42:54.:43:02.

we don't do it then,... OK. This case has trumped a patient with

:43:03.:43:07.

cancer we were going to do in the other theatre echoes that she has

:43:08.:43:11.

got a condition that will kill her -- because, sometime in the next

:43:12.:43:19.

three, four, five, six hours. If we don't do it now, there is going to

:43:20.:43:26.

be no five hours time for her. Incredibly tense situation. How

:43:27.:43:32.

common are situations like that? They are more common than people

:43:33.:43:39.

might think. I think that they are becoming more common. Recently, we

:43:40.:43:45.

are running into these issues more and more. The head of emergency says

:43:46.:43:52.

you are fire fighting to keep it afloat. She says the whole system

:43:53.:43:57.

Countrywide has ground to a halt. Can't speak to the rest of the

:43:58.:44:02.

country but from listening to colleagues, it sounds similar. There

:44:03.:44:13.

are robust plans to tackle the problems with supply but I'm not

:44:14.:44:16.

going to lie, it's very difficult at the moment. Are you glad that people

:44:17.:44:20.

will have an insight into what you do? It's important that people do

:44:21.:44:26.

the how decisions are made, the kind of dishes that are brought to bear

:44:27.:44:30.

on clinical staff, doctors, nurses, and I hope it is very reassuring for

:44:31.:44:35.

them to show that every decision is thought about. And Q4 -- thank you

:44:36.:44:46.

so much. The night, we get that insight. It is unprecedented. It

:44:47.:44:54.

gives us insight into how decisions are made in our hospitals.

:44:55.:44:56.

Here's Carol with a look at this morning's weather.

:44:57.:45:04.

We said don't make the earlier weather forecast the last one you

:45:05.:45:09.

watch today because things are changing all the time. There's lots

:45:10.:45:13.

to keep hold of as people go to school and work today.

:45:14.:45:16.

Yes, and especially with tomorrow's weather forecast. In the next few

:45:17.:45:21.

days we have sleet and snow for some, icy roads and gales. Today we

:45:22.:45:26.

have gales. If you are travelling, bear that in mind. Travel disruption

:45:27.:45:32.

is possible. Storm force winds in the final of Scotland, severe gales

:45:33.:45:35.

or gales in the rest of Scotland, parts of northern England and

:45:36.:45:39.

Northern Ireland. Adding that a mixture of snow. Atrocious

:45:40.:45:42.

conditions on the mountains and hills, with blizzards. Further south

:45:43.:45:46.

will be wintriness in the Pennines. Largely dry on higher ground. Take

:45:47.:45:53.

extra care if you are travelling, especially the M62. Windy around the

:45:54.:45:59.

coast of the south-west of England. As we come across other southern

:46:00.:46:03.

counties it is still windy, just not as windy as it is across other parts

:46:04.:46:10.

of the UK. Showers becoming more prolific across Scotland. Even at

:46:11.:46:13.

lower levels we will have sleet and snow. We will have sunshine in parts

:46:14.:46:19.

of Northern Ireland, England and Wales. There is the risk of some ice

:46:20.:46:25.

on untreated surfaces. We are not looking at the risk of frost so much

:46:26.:46:29.

because it is windy. Winds coming down a little bit. Snow showers

:46:30.:46:32.

becoming more widespread and heavier across Scotland, northern England,

:46:33.:46:36.

Northern Ireland and a few across the hills of Wales. This is what my

:46:37.:46:43.

change tomorrow. We have rain coming in, associated with low pressure,

:46:44.:46:47.

moving towards west to east. There is the risk of surface water

:46:48.:46:53.

flooding. As it engages with the cold, Arctic air that's when we will

:46:54.:46:56.

have snow. First thing in the morning we are likely to have snow

:46:57.:47:00.

on the hills and mountains of Wales. Through the day the snow will travel

:47:01.:47:04.

towards the south-east, even at lower levels we could have up to two

:47:05.:47:09.

centimetres of snow, locally up to ten centimetres, so very variable.

:47:10.:47:13.

Not all of us will see it. This could push further south. The south

:47:14.:47:17.

Midlands might not see it, but that's very much in the forecast at

:47:18.:47:23.

the moment. At the other end of the country we are looking at snow

:47:24.:47:26.

showers. Again, prolific. Some of them heavy. Gusty winds. Lizards on

:47:27.:47:32.

the hills. The wind continuing to come down. -- blizzards. In between

:47:33.:47:39.

all of that we are looking at some dry weather, but wherever you are in

:47:40.:47:43.

this still cold. Although temperatures are above freezing it

:47:44.:47:47.

will feel like it isn't for many of us.

:47:48.:47:52.

Thank you so much. We will be watching closely.

:47:53.:47:54.

From today, if you take a short haul BA flight you won't get any free

:47:55.:47:58.

Instead they've teamed up with a well known retailer to sell

:47:59.:48:04.

This morning Ben is looking at the last of the frills coming off

:48:05.:48:09.

Cheesy bites, is that what you look forward to?

:48:10.:48:18.

The ones that are shaped like fish. I don't think they are cheesy. At as

:48:19.:48:25.

people are pointing out that aren't free, you pay for it in your ticket

:48:26.:48:27.

price. It is a long time since air

:48:28.:48:27.

travel felt glamorous, but today is certainly

:48:28.:48:30.

the end of a era. Not so long ago you

:48:31.:48:33.

could have expected to check in at an airport,

:48:34.:48:36.

get a complimentary snack, You have to print your own boarding

:48:37.:48:41.

pass for many carriers. The cutlery is gone

:48:42.:48:50.

and increasingly airlines are offering services to watch films

:48:51.:48:56.

on your own devices, phone or tablet,

:48:57.:48:59.

rather than installing their own. And from today if you take a short

:49:00.:49:03.

haul British Airways flight from Heathrow or Gatwick

:49:04.:49:06.

you won't get any free Instead you'll have to pay

:49:07.:49:08.

or something provided by M Emma Coulthurst from the website

:49:09.:49:12.

TravelSupermarket joins us. Good morning. The end of an era.

:49:13.:49:18.

When does no frills become no-frills? Isn't it interesting that

:49:19.:49:27.

BA have come out and done this? They are the -- they aren't one of the

:49:28.:49:32.

main cost airlines, like easyJet, but there is little between them. At

:49:33.:49:40.

the moment from today that gin and tonic, that sandwich that you get,

:49:41.:49:46.

it is all gone. You will have to pay for it. It is interesting. The costs

:49:47.:49:50.

are about one third more than you would pay on the high street at M

:49:51.:49:55.

But the best thing to do, take your own. Take your own snacks. Another

:49:56.:50:02.

tip, you water bottle, take it through security empty, then go to

:50:03.:50:07.

one of the bars and ask them to fill it up for free. There are so many

:50:08.:50:12.

extras and I think it is the case of making sure you understand the

:50:13.:50:15.

rules. If you understand the rules then you can get around some of

:50:16.:50:18.

those extras. But there is nowhere on the plane now which hasn't got

:50:19.:50:22.

some sort of potential charge attached to it. That's the point.

:50:23.:50:28.

The airline wants to save money. Of course they are trying to increase

:50:29.:50:31.

the profit margin. So with the competition from the no-frills

:50:32.:50:35.

carriers will stop but will we see our ticket prices go down? I can't

:50:36.:50:38.

imagine it will get cheaper just because we don't get a free meal.

:50:39.:50:43.

Funnily enough, the new BA chairman said last year that they are doing

:50:44.:50:49.

this because the customers want more choice. He kind of suggested that

:50:50.:50:54.

their products warrant premium. But I can't imagine you would find many

:50:55.:51:00.

BA customers saying they wanted to pay ?2 34 cup of tea. Really

:51:01.:51:08.

interesting. A lot of you getting in touch this morning on social media,

:51:09.:51:14.

saying it was one thing that gave BA the edge. Another says, this is the

:51:15.:51:19.

reality. Think of it with a flying bus and you won't be disappointed.

:51:20.:51:22.

Another says, it's a bonus! More for me after 8am.

:51:23.:51:24.

Thank you. In a moment, we'll trade our autocue

:51:25.:51:29.

for a couple of pool cues to try our hand at potting a few

:51:30.:51:33.

balls with the man behind what's been dubbed the best

:51:34.:51:37.

trick shot ever. Millions of people have now watched

:51:38.:51:39.

the video of the stunt which involves a golf club,

:51:40.:51:42.

two flights of stairs, Trick shot enthusiast

:51:43.:51:44.

Shane O'Hara joins us now. Thank you very much. You set that up

:51:45.:53:13.

and it took an extraordinary long time, didn't it? It did, quite

:53:14.:53:19.

sadly. It took an entire night of my life. How many sections were there?

:53:20.:53:26.

20. And he practised every single section how many times? It failed

:53:27.:53:31.

multiple times as we went along. Probably 100 plus takes. Lots of

:53:32.:53:37.

people say they think it is either fake or that it was done on

:53:38.:53:41.

different cameras, but it was one continuous shot. Was it you who took

:53:42.:53:47.

the shot at the start? No, that was someone else rolling in my 15

:53:48.:53:50.

minutes of fame. Even though he had the most limited input in it. I am

:53:51.:53:56.

sure he wouldn't say that! Yes, it is amazing. We were just really

:53:57.:54:03.

persistent. I understand you started from the last shot and then work

:54:04.:54:07.

backwards? Yes, you work backwards. Part of the artistry is that you

:54:08.:54:14.

paint it as it goes. You just go with the flow. There is no still

:54:15.:54:20.

image that you see before you start. Is it true that as frustration

:54:21.:54:26.

kicked in for the last two hours no one spoke to each other? That's

:54:27.:54:31.

true. We all just wanted to go to bed. We were bashing our heads off

:54:32.:54:35.

each other. But it has worked and has been watched by millions. What

:54:36.:54:39.

would you do next? Something more elaborate?

:54:40.:54:42.

You are going to do on here! You have set one up for us? This has a

:54:43.:54:49.

fairly high success rate. Depends on your sporting pedigree. We don't

:54:50.:54:53.

know who will play this. Let's toss the coin.

:54:54.:55:00.

I will go heads. Heads I will do it. Tails, it's you!

:55:01.:55:05.

OK... Can you talk me through it a bit? Do

:55:06.:55:16.

it at medium speed. The plan is that all of the balls will go in. In

:55:17.:55:25.

between the two reds? What will happen if it is successful? If it is

:55:26.:55:30.

successful then you are much braver than I am to do something on live TV

:55:31.:55:36.

like this. And what will happen? Supposedly on ball Bilbo in each

:55:37.:55:38.

pocket. That is officially the worst trick

:55:39.:55:56.

shot ever. I don't want to critique you... I will take some of the

:55:57.:56:02.

liability. Can I have a go in on our? Yes, I will set it up. -- in

today. Incredible stuff. Carol has it for us. Good morning, it is a

:02:02.:02:05.

windy day. The further north you travel, the stronger the gusts of

:02:06.:02:10.

wind will be. There is some wintry showers in the north so blizzards on

:02:11.:02:14.

the hills. Further south, the drizzle will clear and we will see

:02:15.:02:17.

sunshine, but tomorrow it won't just be the north seeing snow. Some parts

:02:18.:02:21.

of the south will as well. But I'll have more on that in 15 minutes.

:02:22.:02:28.

Barack Obama has delivered his farewell address as US President,

:02:29.:02:33.

telling the American people he believes the country

:02:34.:02:35.

is in a better, stronger place than when he was first elected

:02:36.:02:38.

In an emotional speech in Chicago, he thanked his wife Michelle

:02:39.:02:42.

as well as his family and staff and said he still believed

:02:43.:02:45.

in the ability of people to deliver change.

:02:46.:02:47.

However, he admitted progress had not gone

:02:48.:02:48.

far enough as our US Correspondent Laura

:02:49.:02:50.

Barack Obama returned to Chicago, the place where his political career

:02:51.:03:02.

began to deliver his long planned farewell address.

:03:03.:03:05.

The President used his platform to underline what he sees

:03:06.:03:08.

If I had told you that we would win marriage equality and secure

:03:09.:03:16.

the right to health insurance for another 20 million

:03:17.:03:18.

If I told you all that, you might have said our sights

:03:19.:03:32.

Turning to his theme of what could undermine

:03:33.:03:37.

America's democracy, the nation's first black

:03:38.:03:40.

president was frank about the state of race relations.

:03:41.:03:44.

After my election, there was talk of a post-racial America.

:03:45.:03:49.

Such a vision, however well intended, was never realistic.

:03:50.:03:58.

Race remains a potent and often divisive force in our society.

:03:59.:04:02.

Paying tribute to his wife Michelle and his daughters,

:04:03.:04:05.

For those who had lined up for hours to hear him speak in person,

:04:06.:04:14.

I thought it was very uplifting and it gave us a message

:04:15.:04:19.

of hope and encouragement and it was what we needed

:04:20.:04:21.

We had a tough election and we just need to keep fighting

:04:22.:04:29.

Barack Obama's supporters were heartened by his uplifting

:04:30.:04:32.

message tonight and he leaves office with his personal

:04:33.:04:36.

But that didn't stop the American voters from choosing Donald Trump

:04:37.:04:43.

to replace him and now Barack Obama must watch as Republicans tried

:04:44.:04:50.

A little earlier Laura Trevelyan told us how Obama's supporters had

:04:51.:04:56.

It was uplifting. They're depressed after the election of Donald Trump.

:04:57.:05:04.

They feel that Barack Obama chartered a way forward for them and

:05:05.:05:09.

told them that they need to defend American democracy against political

:05:10.:05:14.

apathy, against fake news, against a corrosive political culture, but

:05:15.:05:18.

this speech wasn't just aimed at Barack Obama's supporters, it was

:05:19.:05:23.

for all Americans and also, I think for the president-elect Donald Trump

:05:24.:05:26.

and the president saying clearly progress has been made, but we must

:05:27.:05:31.

protect our rights as Americans. You mentioned Donald Trump, but

:05:32.:05:33.

President Obama didn't mention Donald Trump by name, although the

:05:34.:05:37.

president-elect is in the news again as he would term the fake news

:05:38.:05:44.

again? Well, that's right. US media are reporting that Russian spy

:05:45.:05:50.

agencies have embarrassing information about the

:05:51.:05:54.

president-elect Donald Trump that is personally compromising. They are

:05:55.:05:59.

also reporting that US intelligence agencies sat down with Mr Trump

:06:00.:06:04.

privately and told him about the allegations that apparently Russian

:06:05.:06:07.

spy agencies have. Now, Donald Trump responded as you mentioned in his

:06:08.:06:11.

signature way. He has taken to Twitter and he said fake news, this

:06:12.:06:14.

is a political witch-hunt. Donald Trump is in hot water in Washington

:06:15.:06:20.

for disparaging US intelligence agencies, for their claim that

:06:21.:06:25.

Russia interfered in the recent election to help Mr Trump. Mr Trump

:06:26.:06:29.

is supposed to hold a press conference today. If he does, you

:06:30.:06:30.

can be sure this will come up. We'll be assessing President Obama's

:06:31.:06:36.

legacy with a panel of experts on US politics and society

magistrates' later this morning. Senior doctors are warning that

:06:52.:06:56.

a shortage of resources may leave the NHS in England unable to cope

:06:57.:06:59.

with this winter's demand. In a letter to Theresa May,

:07:00.:07:02.

the Royal College of Physicians said the quality of patient care

:07:03.:07:06.

is under threat. Charities working with elderly

:07:07.:07:09.

and disabled people have also written to the Prime Minister

:07:10.:07:12.

calling for a long-term solution to funding

:07:13.:07:14.

for health and social care. Here's our Health

:07:15.:07:16.

Correspondent Robert Pigott. The Royal College of Physicians said

:07:17.:07:19.

ambulances queuing outside hospitals were visual testament to the crisis

:07:20.:07:25.

in the NHS. The Royal College, which represents

:07:26.:07:27.

33,000 specialist hospital doctors, said patients faced lengthening

:07:28.:07:34.

waits on lists, on trolleys, in accident and emergency

:07:35.:07:36.

departments and at home. It blamed a shortage of qualified

:07:37.:07:39.

staff, stretched too thin lead Our members fear that people's lives

:07:40.:07:41.

are at risk because they can't get round to see the patients that

:07:42.:07:52.

aren't yet in the emergency department or indeed are waiting

:07:53.:07:54.

for results to come back. Members and fellows have been

:07:55.:07:59.

writing in and our council members specifically have said to me this

:08:00.:08:01.

is the worst they have ever seen. Most urgent, said the doctors,

:08:02.:08:06.

is investment in social care to prevent medically fit patients

:08:07.:08:09.

being trapped in hospitals. In their own letter

:08:10.:08:12.

to the Prime Minister, 75 charities and individuals working

:08:13.:08:15.

in health and social care said there must be a long-term

:08:16.:08:17.

cross-party solution to what they called

:08:18.:08:19.

the crisis in funding. Led by the charity Independent Age,

:08:20.:08:29.

they said: The Department of Health

:08:30.:08:37.

said it had invested ?10 billion to develop health services

:08:38.:08:42.

and relieve pressure on hospitals. And, since last year,

during a bible study meeting. He rejected a final chance

:09:02.:09:06.

to plead for his life, telling the jury he felt he "had

:09:07.:09:09.

to carry it out". For the first time,

:09:10.:09:16.

the Attorney-General will set out the legal factors that would be

considered before military action is taken against

terror suspects abroad. In a speech, Jeremy Wright QC,

:09:23.:09:27.

:09:38.:09:55.

lorry overturned on the Forth Road Bridge in the early hours of this

morning. Recovery cranes are at the scene, but drivers are used to use

:10:01.:10:05.

alternative routes. Carol will have a full forecast in seven minutes

:10:06.:10:09.

:10:10.:10:15.

In the last hour we've heard from another one of the big

:10:16.:10:18.

supermarkets about how they did over Christmas.

:10:19.:10:21.

Sainsbury's reporting a sales increase of 0.1%. So they have been

:10:22.:10:32.

really struggling with the turn around plan. You will know they got

:10:33.:10:37.

rid of discounts and buy one and get one free, all that sort of thing.

:10:38.:10:42.

They said it was to simplify what they offer, but it proved it didn't

:10:43.:10:47.

get the customers through the doors. They bought Argos last year and they

:10:48.:10:50.

have had a better time. Their sales are up 4%. They did well from Black

:10:51.:10:57.

Friday and Cyber Monday. So they have done particularly well, but as

:10:58.:11:00.

always, we've had the warnings that prices could rise over the coming

:11:01.:11:04.

year because of inflation and that could affect the price we pay for

:11:05.:11:07.

food in the supermarket. Something we also talk about house prices and

:11:08.:11:15.

not good news from Foxtons? This company is in London, but it deals

:11:16.:11:21.

with a lot of high-end property, but flat rentals, damning figures in

:11:22.:11:24.

their statement and I've done calculations. Revenues down by 26%,

:11:25.:11:27.

that's just in the last quarter. They have said their full year

:11:28.:11:32.

earnings will be down by 46%. And that's because of what they call a

:11:33.:11:37.

significant fall in sales volumes, now we're looking at that closely.

:11:38.:11:41.

There has been a clampdown on the fees that the agencies can charge to

:11:42.:11:45.

people who are renting. Things like renewing contracts and moving to a

:11:46.:11:49.

new house. But also, of course, after Brexit, whether there has been

:11:50.:11:54.

an impact on people buying high-end property, so it's something we'll

:11:55.:11:57.

watch closely, but the early signs for a company like Foxton's isn't

:11:58.:12:12.

good. A plane has come down in Australia.

:12:13.:12:17.

A 13-year-old boy has been treated for minor injuries.

:12:18.:12:22.

The latest strike by southern train drivers entered a second day with no

:12:23.:12:25.

sign of a breakthrough. The walk-out is due to finish at midnight. Four

:12:26.:12:30.

further strike days are planned for later this month. Yesterday, only 16

:12:31.:12:36.

of over 2,000 scheduled services ran. The dispute is about staffing

:12:37.:12:39.

duties on trains. A new species of gibbon has been

:12:40.:12:43.

identified in China. These black and cream

:12:44.:12:50.

gibbons live high up A full comparison has confirmed it's

:12:51.:12:52.

unlike any other in Asia. It's been named the Skywalker

:12:53.:12:56.

Hoolock gibbon, partly because the Chinese translation

:12:57.:12:58.

of its name means heaven's movement but also because the scientists

:12:59.:13:00.

are fans of Star Wars. Barack Obama left the world stage

:13:01.:13:06.

with the same words he first used in the run-up to his election

:13:07.:13:21.

as President,"Yes, we can." Joining us on the sofa

:13:22.:13:23.

now are Scott Lucas, Professor of American Studies

:13:24.:13:27.

at the University of Birmingham, and Elizabeth Linder,

:13:28.:13:29.

the former Politics and government

:13:30.:13:31.

specialist at Facebook. Thank you for your time. Overall the

:13:32.:13:36.

speech, Scott, we'll start with you first. How do you think it went

:13:37.:13:40.

down? I've got really mixed feelings about it. He is always a raet or ra

:13:41.:13:48.

for. There is two things. One, I think the setting wasn't right. It

:13:49.:13:55.

felt like a pepper alley. I would rather that - he just addressed

:13:56.:13:59.

directly the American public and said we're in a tricky time.

:14:00.:14:05.

Secondly, I think he did too much. I wish he had challenged the fact that

:14:06.:14:08.

this is a very divided country right now. It has been polarized in part,

:14:09.:14:13.

by media and in part by the campaign over the past year. He is a

:14:14.:14:17.

naturally cautious man and I think he was too cautious last night in

:14:18.:14:21.

saying folks, we might be great, but we have really got to tackle this

:14:22.:14:25.

head-on right now. Elizabeth. At the start, you know, it was the kind of

:14:26.:14:30.

the American dream, they were the golden family, the stakes were

:14:31.:14:34.

really high, but this many years later, have things changed,

:14:35.:14:38.

particularly to race relations. Are they better or worse, do you think?

:14:39.:14:41.

I thought it was interesting that President Obama directly addressed

:14:42.:14:45.

race relations in America which was a surprising move given that's one

:14:46.:14:49.

of the presiding questions we have today. A professor at a university

:14:50.:14:55.

in America who focuses on race relations has really questioned why

:14:56.:14:59.

it is that Barack Obama did not actually deliver on helping our

:15:00.:15:02.

country to progress further in that space, but what he did actually talk

:15:03.:15:06.

about, which was interesting, was the role of mill lendials in

:15:07.:15:10.

charting out our future which I think was interesting because after

:15:11.:15:13.

this election the country has been a bit hard on the younger people for

:15:14.:15:17.

not voting, for not being as politically active. So the fact that

:15:18.:15:20.

President Obama actually went back to those people that helped get him

:15:21.:15:24.

in office eight years ago and pin his hopes for the future on them

:15:25.:15:29.

really meant, I thought, that he sees potentially more prosperous

:15:30.:15:32.

future for our country than he sees in the short-term. Saying if you S

:15:33.:15:38.

want to moan, go and get a billboard and run for office. He didn't

:15:39.:15:42.

mention President Donald Trump, but there were a few silent digs and one

:15:43.:15:49.

of them you'll hear now. Isil will try to kill innocent people. But

:15:50.:15:57.

they cannot defeat America unless we portray our constitution and our

:15:58.:16:04.

principles in the fight. Rivals like Russia or China cannot match our

:16:05.:16:09.

influence around the world unless we give up what we stand for. And turn

:16:10.:16:14.

ourselves into just another big country that bullies smaller

:16:15.:16:26.

He did not mention Donald Trump by name. There were some silent digs.

:16:27.:16:34.

He only mentioned his name once, in the peaceful transition of power.

:16:35.:16:38.

This was a vintage farewell address from a president. Facts and figures,

:16:39.:16:43.

looking back, they were not the point, the key was looking ahead,

:16:44.:16:47.

and saying where do we need to go, what are the challenges ahead?

:16:48.:16:52.

Viewpoint around Russia and the Chinese, reminded America we are in

:16:53.:16:58.

a fine balance between rugged individualism, which Americans love,

:16:59.:17:02.

the entrepreneur, the kid with the idea, also the common set of values.

:17:03.:17:07.

America is one of the most patriotic countries in the world, that is our

:17:08.:17:13.

strength. Obama has been criticised for not waving the flag. In this

:17:14.:17:18.

speech, he went further planting a flag in the ground, saying believing

:17:19.:17:24.

everything we stand for. Again, I wish she had gone farther. I'm not

:17:25.:17:30.

sure he should have repeatedly said the name Trump declared war with

:17:31.:17:34.

Russia. We are in a middle of an episode where Russia interfered in

:17:35.:17:38.

the US election, a direct challenge to the US democracy. It has to be

:17:39.:17:44.

acknowledged. Obama is a very cautious man. We have a unique

:17:45.:17:48.

president coming in with a unique challenge. That needs to be

:17:49.:17:56.

recognised for fright. You mention technology, the threat from Russia.

:17:57.:18:00.

Overnight has been one of the stories of Donald Trump talking

:18:01.:18:04.

about fake stories, with allegations of the Russians having a dossier

:18:05.:18:09.

with his financial and personal back story. How is that going to play

:18:10.:18:15.

out. That has bemoaned the bigger stories overnight? Every reference

:18:16.:18:20.

to technology in his speech was a cautionary tale. Really interesting.

:18:21.:18:28.

The first online president. President Obama, on Google,

:18:29.:18:33.

Facebook, YouTube, he's the president of social media,

:18:34.:18:37.

21st-century technology, the viral video. He has dominated that space.

:18:38.:18:44.

The fact that every reference of social media was a reminder to get

:18:45.:18:47.

out of the bubble, meet people in real life, really telling where he

:18:48.:18:55.

is taking us. One other thing we talked about was Obama care. That

:18:56.:19:00.

was really important to him. He admitted it did not go far enough,

:19:01.:19:04.

and could be reversed. It definitely could be repealed. What is more

:19:05.:19:09.

important, there is no sign of what it would be replaced with. This was

:19:10.:19:14.

an achievement. 20 million Americans were covered. Sloth the increase in

:19:15.:19:20.

health care costs. Republicans are alleging all those games are fake,

:19:21.:19:27.

and Obama care is some sort of socialism. When we talk about

:19:28.:19:32.

technology and social media, we get overwhelmed by what is real and what

:19:33.:19:37.

is fake. We have health care reform, it should not be ripped up. A lot of

:19:38.:19:41.

stories save his greatest achievement was getting to the White

:19:42.:19:45.

House in the first place. Is that harsh, forgetting what he has done?

:19:46.:19:50.

That is an achievement we need to recognise in the United States. We

:19:51.:19:56.

had to go back to that speech by Michelle Obama, saying the White

:19:57.:19:59.

House was built by slaves. It is an achievement. Ending with the change

:20:00.:20:06.

narrative is interesting. I thought the speech was going to be about

:20:07.:20:12.

hope, but it was about change, but not Barack Obama's change, but how

:20:13.:20:17.

America needs to change to take ourselves forward. Slightly less

:20:18.:20:21.

optimistic than they farewell address should have been from this

:20:22.:20:27.

president. We have to move on. Thank you very much. We could go on for

:20:28.:20:28.

hours, fascinating. Here's Carol with a look

:20:29.:20:36.

at this morning's weather. The mixture of sleet and snow in the

:20:37.:20:46.

next few days, icy roads, and today gales. If you are travelling take

:20:47.:20:52.

extra care. The further north you travel, the stronger the winds is

:20:53.:20:59.

likely to be, and actually are. Wintry showers across Scotland,

:21:00.:21:02.

across Scotland, Northern Ireland and England we are looking at severe

:21:03.:21:08.

gales, with exposure. Blizzards on the hills. Treacherous conditions

:21:09.:21:13.

over the tops of the Pennines. Watch out on the M6 the to in high sided

:21:14.:21:20.

vehicles. Coastal gales as well. Wind pushing into East Anglia, not

:21:21.:21:26.

as windy as it is further north. The drizzle in the south, that will

:21:27.:21:31.

fade, some sunshine coming through. Wintry showers increasing across

:21:32.:21:35.

Scotland, some of those at lower levels. Some of us will see them.

:21:36.:21:45.

Could see one or two overnight. If anything they will become more

:21:46.:21:49.

prolific in these areas. The risk of some ice on untreated surfaces. The

:21:50.:21:55.

wind will be too strong for Frost. Although that wind will start to

:21:56.:21:59.

come down. This next area comes in, this one is problematic. Rain coming

:22:00.:22:05.

in from the West, moving east. Engaging with the cold arctic air.

:22:06.:22:09.

Where we have backlash we will see some snow. Across the South, snow

:22:10.:22:14.

across the moors, into the south-east. In the north, wintry

:22:15.:22:20.

showers across Scotland, Northern Ireland and northern England, even

:22:21.:22:24.

at lower levels. The wind is easing, but still some blizzards. Tomorrow

:22:25.:22:29.

will feel cold. Where we have the snow, this area could change, coming

:22:30.:22:34.

further south. Keep in touch with the weather forecast tomorrow. In

:22:35.:22:38.

between, drier conditions. Wherever you are, it will feel cold. In the

:22:39.:22:42.

wind, more like this, temperatures below freezing. The added hazard is

:22:43.:22:48.

also ice. Not out of the woods at the end of Thursday. Losing

:22:49.:22:53.

low-pressure into the continent. The wind is veering to a

:22:54.:22:58.

Northerly. Along the east coast we're looking at gales, wintry

:22:59.:23:09.

showers again. Also some big waves. There is the risk that locally down

:23:10.:23:13.

the East Coast we could well see some coastal flooding. A luck in the

:23:14.:23:18.

weather forecast, today wind, tomorrow snow, then back to the wind

:23:19.:23:26.

again on Friday. More in half an hour's time.

:23:27.:23:29.

More needs to be done to help families living with dementia

:23:30.:23:31.

That's the finding of the first academic study looking at how

:23:32.:23:35.

the condition affects those in the countryside.

:23:36.:23:37.

It's called for an increase in support services and training -

:23:38.:23:39.

and help from the local community itself, as John Maguire

:23:40.:23:42.

The bucolic beauty of our rural landscapes and communities often

:23:43.:23:48.

mask some of the challenges of living here.

:23:49.:23:53.

The isolation, the lack of services and the scarcity of support.

:23:54.:23:58.

In the first report of its kind, Plymouth University has studied

:23:59.:24:00.

the impact of dementia in the countryside and what

:24:01.:24:02.

Things like support networks with other families who are going

:24:03.:24:11.

through a similar situation would be enormously helpful,

:24:12.:24:13.

some of our families said, to help them cope.

:24:14.:24:17.

Perhaps not in the local area, perhaps somebody else upcountry

:24:18.:24:20.

so you don't have that public sort of...

:24:21.:24:24.

We're meeting this farmer and his mother.

:24:25.:24:38.

Her husband Eric had dementia for the last ten years of his life.

:24:39.:24:43.

The old adage is that farmers never retire, they keep going,

:24:44.:24:47.

He still wanted to do what he could, but it still had quite an impact

:24:48.:24:57.

on us, particularly from the carer side of it, because, Mum,

:24:58.:25:00.

It started about 15 years ago and when Eric was diagnosed at least

:25:01.:25:18.

he went to day care two days a week and that was a great help.

:25:19.:25:22.

The Plymouth University report has several key recommendations,

:25:23.:25:25.

among them, where possible, farmers should plan ahead

:25:26.:25:34.

Councils, health and other agencies should co-ordinate to offer support

:25:35.:25:37.

and there should be more dementia awareness training.

:25:38.:25:42.

This memory cafe in the town of Ashburton is run by volunteers

:25:43.:25:45.

It offers memory stimulation for patients and respite

:25:46.:25:49.

for carers and, elsewhere, there is specialist help available.

:25:50.:25:52.

Form filling, or farm inspections, just to make sure they aren't

:25:53.:26:02.

missing out financially as well, and we can also offer practical help

:26:03.:26:07.

on farms if they are struggling maybe to do tasks like TB testing.

:26:08.:26:10.

Our volunteers can make sure we can go on the farm and do practical

:26:11.:26:13.

things as well to help in the short term.

:26:14.:26:15.

Ian Sheriff chairs the Rural Dementia Group.

:26:16.:26:19.

Sometimes as a community or culture you go for radical strategies.

:26:20.:26:34.

Strategies won't change this world, Prime Ministers won't,

:26:35.:26:36.

we will in our rural community and we will have to do it ourselves.

:26:37.:26:40.

Dementia can be cruel and devastating, but this report

:26:41.:26:42.

says it doesn't have to be suffered in silence.

:26:43.:26:54.

Later you are going to try your hand at the snooker skills. I will try

:26:55.:27:02.

the trick shot. Did you pot one or two? Two.

:27:03.:30:22.

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

:30:23.:30:34.

It is exactly 8:30am. Thank you for being with us on this Wednesday

:30:35.:30:39.

morning. Let's bring you up-to-date with some of the main stories out

:30:40.:30:40.

there today. Barack Obama has delivered his

:30:41.:30:42.

farewell address as US President. In an emotional speech in Chicago,

charged with the murder of a seven-year-old,

Katie Rough, in York. Fiona Trott is outside the court

:32:24.:32:27.

where the girl is due to appear later this morning,

:32:28.:32:30.

Fiona, what do we know so far? It was around an hour and a half

:32:31.:32:35.

after Katie had finished school. We believe she was found on a rear

:32:36.:32:40.

playing field in the Woodthorpe area. Neighbours tell us that a

:32:41.:32:44.

woman who they believe to be her mother was seen crying in the street

:32:45.:32:48.

and asking people to phone for an ambulance. Katie was taken to

hospital, but died a short time later. Overnight, North Yorkshire

:32:54.:32:57.

Police say that a 15-year-old girl has been charged with murder.

:32:58.:33:01.

Because of her age, we can't name her for legal reasons. She has also

:33:02.:33:05.

been charged with having an offensive weapon. She is due to

:33:06.:33:12.

appear at court later this morning. Meanwhile, North Yorkshire Police

:33:13.:33:20.

are appealing for girls who may have been seen in the area.

:33:21.:33:24.

There's major traffic disruption after a lorry overturned

:33:25.:33:26.

on the Forth Road Bridge in the early hours of the morning.

:33:27.:33:29.

The HGV was blown from the northbound lane

:33:30.:33:31.

onto the southbound carriageway in gale-force winds.

Senior doctors are warning that the crisis in the NHS

:33:37.:33:41.

and social care is putting people's lives at risk.

:33:42.:33:44.

In a letter to the Prime Minister, the Royal College of Physicians say

:33:45.:33:48.

a shortage of resources means the quality of patient

:33:49.:33:50.

Charities working with elderly and disabled people are also calling

:33:51.:33:58.

for a long-term solution to funding for health and social care.

Sainsbury's is the latest supermarket to publish

:34:06.:34:11.

its Christmas results, with sales up just 0.1%

:34:12.:34:13.

Whilst the food business remained almost flat, Argos,

:34:14.:34:22.

which the supermarket bought last year, did better,

:34:23.:34:24.

The other big supermarkets publish their results tomorrow.

Back by your request, polar Bear news.

:34:33.:34:38.

These pictures come from a camera attached to the neck of a female

:34:39.:34:41.

polar bear and shows two bears breaking through ice sheets

:34:42.:34:43.

The US Geological Survey hopes it'll help researchers better understand

:34:44.:34:47.

how the animals are responding to declining sea ice levels.

:34:48.:34:53.

Our lovely viewers have been sending in their polar bear facts. They have

:34:54.:35:04.

black skin, did you know that? Their hair is actually a hollow tube. They

:35:05.:35:09.

have bred with grizzly bears, and they call them either pizzly bears

:35:10.:35:20.

for grolar bears. Victoria Derbyshire is on at nine

:35:21.:35:22.

o'clock this morning on BBC Two. Let's see what's coming

:35:23.:35:26.

up on the programme. Good morning, which topped British

:35:27.:35:31.

pop artist tickets are being sent directly on the retail ticketing

:35:32.:35:39.

website at higher prices? Not only guided by legality but morality, and

:35:40.:35:42.

if there is no problem doing that, why do we know who the artists are?

:35:43.:35:47.

We will reveal who the artist is this morning. Join us. Victoria,

:35:48.:35:53.

thank you. Still to come to you on breakfast this morning. If there is

:35:54.:36:01.

a reason why I'm standing here, thank you, BAFTA.

:36:02.:36:03.

The incredibly moving moment when the actor Jason Watkins

:36:04.:36:06.

dedicated his Bafta to the memory of his daughter.

:36:07.:36:08.

We'll be speaking to Jason about bereavement and how he wants

:36:09.:36:10.

more support for families in the same situation.

:36:11.:36:13.

Also this morning, the sailor who was born profoundly deaf and has

:36:14.:36:16.

just beaten his heroes to become Yachtsman of the Year.

:36:17.:36:22.

He will be here to tell us about his extraordinary story.

:36:23.:36:27.

And we'll also speak to the financial journalist

:36:28.:36:29.

who challenged herself to stop spending money for a whole year.

:36:30.:36:36.

She did buy foods and things, but added extras. And rent. Cat is here

:36:37.:36:46.

with a last look at the sport. Manchester United continue to win.

:36:47.:36:52.

Nine in a row now and they play Liverpool on Sunday. Liverpool play

:36:53.:36:55.

their League Cup semifinal tonight, and it is a big fixture in the

:36:56.:36:58.

Premier League, Manchester United against football. Always has been.

:36:59.:37:03.

Jose Mourinho said after last night's match that his players

:37:04.:37:06.

weren't good enough, he wasn't good enough and the fans were not good

:37:07.:37:10.

enough, that the atmosphere at Old Trafford was not good enough and

:37:11.:37:12.

they must do better on Sunday, so come on Manchester United fans, a

:37:13.:37:17.

battle from Jose Mourinho ahead that Liverpool match.

:37:18.:37:20.

Manchester United will take a 2-0 advantage into the second leg

:37:21.:37:23.

of their League Cup semifinal against Hull City.

:37:24.:37:25.

Wayne Rooney couldn't find the goal which would have made him United's

:37:26.:37:28.

all-time top scorer but Juan Mata put them ahead after the break.

:37:29.:37:31.

The second came late on when Marouane Fellaini headed

:37:32.:37:33.

Liverpool go to Southampton for the first leg of

:37:34.:37:40.

Jurgen Klopp was criticised for the young team he fielded

:37:41.:37:43.

in the FA Cup but is expected to bring back his big

:37:44.:37:46.

As long as you are involved, it is the most important Cup,

:37:47.:37:50.

That is how we see it and so, Southampton, for example,

:37:51.:37:54.

if you want to talk about intensity, they had a more intense time

:37:55.:37:57.

than we had so there is no advantage for one side.

:37:58.:38:00.

The Fifa President says expanding the World Cup will improve

:38:01.:38:07.

After a vote yesterday, an extra 16 teams will take part

:38:08.:38:14.

in 2026, making 48 in total, and Gianni Infantino believes

:38:15.:38:17.

It's time to open to the world a competition like the World Cup,

:38:18.:38:27.

a celebration of football, like the World Cup.

:38:28.:38:30.

The competition that makes the world stand still and focus on an event.

:38:31.:38:34.

If we look at how football has developed in the last decades,

:38:35.:38:37.

the last years as well in particular, we can see

:38:38.:38:39.

that the quality of football has become higher and higher

:38:40.:38:42.

14-time Paralympic gold medallist Dame Sarah Storey says athletes

:38:43.:38:52.

deserve a lot more time to prepare for the Para-cycling Track

:38:53.:38:55.

The UCI announced yesterday the event would take place

:38:56.:39:01.

in Los Angeles from March 2nd - just seven weeks away.

:39:02.:39:03.

Storey says she's been pressing for a date to be named

:39:04.:39:06.

UCI President Brian Cookson has defended the decision saying that

:39:07.:39:09.

holding the championships for the first time in

:39:10.:39:11.

a post-Paralympic season signifies "notable progress".

:39:12.:39:19.

Johanna Konta is through to the semi-finals of

:39:20.:39:21.

the Sydney International after beating Daria Kasatkina

:39:22.:39:22.

The British number one had to come from behind in the second set

:39:23.:39:27.

Konta will play former Wimbledon finalist Eugenie

:39:28.:39:30.

Bouchard billed as one of the rising stars of tennis but I would not bet

:39:31.:39:43.

against Johanna Konta. Thank you very much.

:39:44.:39:51.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will today visit

:39:52.:39:53.

a centre run by a charity which supports bereaved parents.

:39:54.:39:56.

Prince William is royal patron of Child Bereavement UK,

:39:57.:39:58.

which also offers help to children who have experienced

:39:59.:40:00.

Graham Satchell has been to meet a family

:40:01.:40:03.

You may find some of the details in this report upsetting.

:40:04.:40:08.

If I got moody with her dad, she would be like, come on,

:40:09.:40:15.

She was full of life, full of smiles.

:40:16.:40:25.

She knew me better than I knew myself.

:40:26.:40:28.

Olivia Chandler died six years ago after an asthma attack at school.

:40:29.:40:32.

We both didn't know what to do or what to say to one another.

:40:33.:40:47.

I wanted to cry, but I didn't want to cry in front

:40:48.:40:57.

I had to be strong for the rest of the family.

:40:58.:41:03.

How do you cope with the death of a child, a daughter, sister?

:41:04.:41:19.

We aren't what I would call a normal family anymore,

:41:20.:41:21.

it will always stick in my mind, is the fact that Darren turns

:41:22.:41:25.

around to Kayley and says, "It's OK to cry for your sister".

:41:26.:41:36.

And the fact that she turned around and said...

:41:37.:41:38.

For years, you were two peas in a pod.

:41:39.:41:57.

Struggled to talk to each other, struggled with friends

:41:58.:42:01.

who didn't know what to say and then drifted away.

:42:02.:42:03.

But they have had hope, counselling from the charity

:42:04.:42:05.

Many of the families that we see at Child Bereavement UK do talk

:42:06.:42:09.

about the sense of loneliness and isolation that comes from grief

:42:10.:42:12.

and I think we have to chip away at this taboo and try and help

:42:13.:42:16.

decrease the isolation that bereaved families so often feel.

:42:17.:42:23.

I'm not one that likes to show my feelings,

:42:24.:42:26.

so coming here was a bit awkward at first.

:42:27.:42:33.

At the time my sister died, I was going through a bad stage

:42:34.:42:37.

myself, with me getting bullied and self harming, things like that.

:42:38.:42:40.

Me self harming was my way of coping, to take it out

:42:41.:42:45.

I am slowly getting there, just trying to get my life back on track.

:42:46.:42:50.

When I think back to how everything was, even on the day of Olivia's

:42:51.:42:53.

death, we weren't actually there for each other.

:42:54.:42:58.

When we started having sessions together, I mean,

:42:59.:43:02.

to be honest, that was the only time we actually spoke to each

:43:03.:43:06.

other or actually knew how each other felt.

:43:07.:43:08.

Counselling has helped the Chandlers, but their lives

:43:09.:43:10.

I still think I haven't really grieved properly.

:43:11.:43:23.

There's always a song, or there's always a film,

:43:24.:43:29.

or there's always something that's there, and you never forget.

:43:30.:43:35.

It is a really tough subject to talk about, a huge thank you to the

:43:36.:43:44.

Chandler family for talking us about that, and it is a really emotional

:43:45.:43:45.

story. We're joined now by the Bafta

:43:46.:43:46.

Award-winning actor Jason Watkins, who's two-year-old daughter

:43:47.:43:49.

Maude died in 2011. Thank you so much for coming to talk

:43:50.:43:55.

to us and I know it is something that is really important to you as

:43:56.:44:02.

well. Shall we start with Maude, and what happened, and obviously the

:44:03.:44:05.

immediate effects on your family were enormous. Maude, leading up to

:44:06.:44:13.

Christmas 2010, our daughter Maude became ill with a cough and cold,

:44:14.:44:16.

and seem to get worse, heading towards flu, so I took it to a GP,

:44:17.:44:23.

who suggested she go to a drop in a any, a children as my place in the

:44:24.:44:31.

local hospital -- a children A She then was at the same sentence

:44:32.:44:36.

the next day, and she was having breathing difficulties and we all

:44:37.:44:39.

got very worried, displaying all those signs that was sepsis. That

:44:40.:44:46.

was because of it. People are much more aware it now. So we went back

:44:47.:44:52.

to the hospital, my wife and I took her and I stayed. She was monitored

:44:53.:44:59.

for a couple of hours, and then given more medication and then sent

:45:00.:45:04.

home, that was New Year's Eve, we put her to bed, did all the things

:45:05.:45:08.

we were told to do by the medical professionals, and I went in in the

:45:09.:45:13.

morning, firstly, our daughter, our older daughter had been trying to

:45:14.:45:19.

play with her in the bedroom, and she had come in, and then a couple

:45:20.:45:28.

of minutes later I went in, and she had clearly died. So there was this

:45:29.:45:32.

traumatic and terribly painful event for all of us. Obviously

:45:33.:45:38.

particularly my wife, Clara, and our daughter. I tried to revive her and

:45:39.:45:42.

do all those things in another room. Oh, so sorry. I apologise for being

:45:43.:45:48.

slightly graphic about it, but it is an extremely traumatic, and of

:45:49.:45:55.

parents have post-traumatic stress disorder as a result. It is

:45:56.:45:59.

appalling, it is the worst thing you could ever imagine, but I'm only

:46:00.:46:02.

saying it really because we will talk about it a little bit more

:46:03.:46:07.

later, but that trauma does pass. It is important for anybody who are

:46:08.:46:12.

suffering at the moment, in that acute phase of trauma, it does pass,

:46:13.:46:14.

and you do come through that. You wrote a diary entry a couple of

:46:15.:46:26.

weeks after Maude died. I suppose this shows what you are going

:46:27.:46:33.

through. I can't... I've printed it out. I have the resolve this morning

:46:34.:46:40.

after it yesterday's everybody's got a hungry heart, which was playing on

:46:41.:46:45.

the radio and obliterate it me. The thought I had... I will not be seen

:46:46.:46:49.

as the man who lost his daughter and that define me. I've got to be

:46:50.:46:52.

defined as the man who has learned to cope with the tragedy of losing

:46:53.:46:57.

his daughter, and in this way I will carry my family with me. Clara is

:46:58.:47:02.

inconsolable, she has itchy hands and she managed to walk, I carried

:47:03.:47:09.

her into bed. Bess was misbehaving, she was being a bit naughty. Simple

:47:10.:47:14.

domestic things were going on around us. I tried not to show Clara I was

:47:15.:47:22.

crying. You've got your grief, you've got your wife's and your

:47:23.:47:26.

daughter as well. Incredibly devastating for her. What did help?

:47:27.:47:40.

Slow Is an organisation run by parents. After a while we were able

:47:41.:47:48.

to talk to them. That is a group you can contact. What helps is, those

:47:49.:47:54.

friends... You think you are going to reply on your family. My in-laws

:47:55.:47:58.

really helped but of course they were going through trauma as well.

:47:59.:48:01.

It's really those friends who come forward, particularly one or two

:48:02.:48:06.

come to mind, who are not only present. You'd can't get out of bed,

:48:07.:48:13.

you spend days in bed. It's like when you've had an operation and you

:48:14.:48:17.

feel completely obliterated and have no energy. You feel like you're

:48:18.:48:23.

trying to get out of a dark pit, and your heart aches. You feel your

:48:24.:48:27.

heart is broken, you can feel this pain. So people who are there, able

:48:28.:48:36.

just to listen but also do practical things, funeral arrangements, things

:48:37.:48:39.

like that. We had an inquest as well that we had to tackle. Simply by

:48:40.:48:48.

doing very simple things, providing food, you know, you can't say, how

:48:49.:48:53.

are you feeling today, when you're in that state. It's hard for people

:48:54.:48:57.

to find the right words at times, isn't it? It is almost impossible.

:48:58.:49:01.

Some people are very good at it, some people find it difficult.

:49:02.:49:06.

Hopefully I'm better at it now. What about helping Bessie threw it has

:49:07.:49:15.

well, helping a child through enormous pain? I asked her the other

:49:16.:49:19.

day, just to write down what she thought about it. She wrote she was

:49:20.:49:24.

lucky in that she went to see a wonderful man. Extraordinary people

:49:25.:49:31.

come out of the woodwork. Parts of our society and people doing

:49:32.:49:34.

incredible things everyday that you don't necessarily see. Health care

:49:35.:49:38.

professionals, they like guardian angels. One person called Tony who

:49:39.:49:42.

worked for the trust helped our daughter through. She says one

:49:43.:49:50.

entry... She used to go and see Tony and now she doesn't need to any

:49:51.:49:56.

more. She says, when Maude died, I was three. I didn't know what death

:49:57.:50:00.

was. I was in shock for a long time that I would never see her again.

:50:01.:50:05.

Maude will never come back but she will always be in our heart. That's

:50:06.:50:09.

what she wrote the other day. You do learn to accommodate the loss in

:50:10.:50:15.

your life as you go forward. For anyone watching who is struggling

:50:16.:50:18.

with the same issues, I know it never gets better but who should

:50:19.:50:24.

they contact? Child Bereavement UK are a charity I wasn't familiar

:50:25.:50:29.

with. It's a wonderful thing, to be able... Even if a friend of

:50:30.:50:33.

somebody, because you are incapable of doing anything. Even a close

:50:34.:50:37.

friend of somebody who is suffering bereavement of a child or family

:50:38.:50:42.

member contacts but group, they can act as a resource to point you in

:50:43.:50:46.

the right direction. Thank you for coming to talk to us. It is Slow

:50:47.:50:57.

Group and Child Bereavement UK which are the organisations you are

:50:58.:50:58.

involved in. Thank you. Here's Carol with a look

:50:59.:51:02.

at this morning's weather. Good morning, it's windy start to

:51:03.:51:13.

the day. If you are setting out take extra care. We've got strong winds,

:51:14.:51:17.

the further north you travelled the stronger the wind become. Some

:51:18.:51:25.

travel disruption is likely, things like bridges being closed,

:51:26.:51:29.

debridement the roads. Find out more on your BBC local radio station.

:51:30.:51:36.

Blizzards in the hills and mountains of Scotland and across northern

:51:37.:51:41.

England, very windy. The same across Northern Ireland, with some wintry

:51:42.:51:45.

miss on the hills. Around the coasts it is windy. Inland, looking at

:51:46.:51:53.

gusts of 60 mph. In Southern counties it's not a windy as it is

:51:54.:51:58.

further north. The wind will be strong as we go through the course

:51:59.:52:01.

of the day. Still those wintry showers piling in, a mixture of

:52:02.:52:07.

rain, sleet and snow. Further south we will see some sunshine coming

:52:08.:52:12.

through. We'll see that in between the showers and also the showers in

:52:13.:52:16.

Northern Ireland. Overnight the showers become more prolific and

:52:17.:52:21.

heavy. We'll see them across Scotland, northern England and

:52:22.:52:28.

Northern Ireland. Some of those down to sea level as well. The neck

:52:29.:52:33.

system coming in from the south-west is bringing problems. It's just

:52:34.:52:36.

deciding how far north it's going to travel. This is what we think at the

:52:37.:52:40.

moment. As it engages with the Arctic air coming our way, we'll

:52:41.:52:45.

start to see snow. By the end of the night will have snow in the

:52:46.:52:49.

mountains and hills in Wales, and a lot of rain moving across southern

:52:50.:52:52.

areas. That could lead to localised problems with surface water

:52:53.:52:57.

flooding. Meanwhile the slow falling across the moors, heading towards

:52:58.:53:01.

the Midlands, getting over towards Kent, coming through the Home

:53:02.:53:05.

Counties and into East Anglia. All it takes is for the weather front

:53:06.:53:09.

not to come as far north and to be a bit further south, and that will

:53:10.:53:13.

change the whole area where the snow falls. Keep in touch with the

:53:14.:53:18.

weather forecast. Some places could have won - two centimetres, locally

:53:19.:53:22.

we could see ten centimetres. Across Scotland, Northern Ireland and

:53:23.:53:27.

northern England, there will be a plethora of snow showers at low

:53:28.:53:31.

levels as well. Not all of us will see them because there will be

:53:32.:53:33.

showers and bright spells in between. The winds will continue to

:53:34.:53:37.

ease. In between those two areas, dry and bright. Wherever you are it

:53:38.:53:48.

will feel cold. The wind will make the temperatures feel colder than

:53:49.:53:52.

they suggest. Thursday and Friday, below clearing. Gales and wintry

:53:53.:54:00.

showers down the east coast and the risk of some localised, coastal

:54:01.:54:04.

flooding as well. A lot going on with the weather forecast.

:54:05.:54:11.

Two separate letters have been written to the Prime Minister today

:54:12.:54:15.

warning that patients are being let down and lives are being put

:54:16.:54:18.

In the run up to Christmas, BBC cameras were allowed to film

:54:19.:54:22.

the reality of everyday life on the front line in one

:54:23.:54:25.

of England's busiest trusts and the pressure that

:54:26.:54:27.

There's another trauma coming in now. Is this shooting coming to us?

:54:28.:54:43.

Two lines of cocaine, unknown quantities of vodka and beer. A

:54:44.:54:47.

28-year-old male stabbed three times. Seven men with guns have gone

:54:48.:54:52.

into a building, someone isn't moving. What about trauma beds? What

:54:53.:55:01.

beds have you got for me? The minute we have bed problems, usually due to

:55:02.:55:06.

patients not being able to leave the hospital at the other end, we end up

:55:07.:55:10.

in this state. This man needs to go to ITU.

:55:11.:55:15.

Tim Muffett is live this morning from St Mary's hospital

:55:16.:55:17.

in Paddington which features in the series.

:55:18.:55:19.

We talk every day virtually about situations facing those who work and

:55:20.:55:28.

use the NHS, what have you got for us today? This is one of the

:55:29.:55:31.

hospitals featured in that documentary series. It is a busy

:55:32.:55:36.

trauma centre. There's been a 10% increase in A patients over the

:55:37.:55:42.

past 12 months. That means there's 150 new cases every day, in addition

:55:43.:55:46.

to the number of cases they would expect before. This documentary

:55:47.:55:50.

provides a real insight. Leslie Powell is the site manager. Why was

:55:51.:55:54.

it important to allow the cameras in? We wanted to showcase that

:55:55.:56:00.

despite the challenges we face, our staff do incredible work, and our

:56:01.:56:04.

patients get amazing care. Let's have a look at another clip. In this

:56:05.:56:08.

one there is a morning meeting taking place, we have to take these

:56:09.:56:12.

difficult decisions as to where resources can be allocated. There's

:56:13.:56:18.

currently no cubicles anywhere in A for any new patients. OK, not a

:56:19.:56:23.

great start to a Monday morning you guys, then. We are in a very similar

:56:24.:56:29.

position to charring Cross this morning, very full and busy. Let's

:56:30.:56:33.

have a look at the beds. It's probably easier for me to say what

:56:34.:56:37.

we've got which is nothing at the moment. Priorities for us is to sort

:56:38.:56:43.

out the unplaced patients in the emergency department. We'll pick up

:56:44.:56:47.

surgical electives in ten minutes. I think we will go out on read this

:56:48.:56:52.

morning, then. Thank you very much, everybody. Will speak again at

:56:53.:56:57.

lunchtime. In that situation we saw you talking about a code red

:56:58.:57:02.

situation, what is that? A code red happens usually once a week, often

:57:03.:57:06.

more frequently. It is the hospital's way of letting ourselves

:57:07.:57:10.

that we need everybody to help us because we are starting to have not

:57:11.:57:14.

enough beds we need to treat the patients we've got coming through

:57:15.:57:18.

our emergency department or our elective patients. The head of

:57:19.:57:22.

emergency medicine say you are firefighting every day, do you go

:57:23.:57:26.

along with that and how bad does it get? It's a very challenged

:57:27.:57:30.

environment, the modern NHS is very challenged. I wouldn't say we

:57:31.:57:34.

firefight, I would say we have a lot of skilled staff who work incredibly

:57:35.:57:37.

hard every day to do the best we can for our patients. Tim Orchard is the

:57:38.:57:43.

divisional director of medicine and integrated care. Why did you want to

:57:44.:57:48.

allow TV cameras in? We wanted to allow people to see the decisions

:57:49.:57:51.

that were made that allow people to get the care they need. Very often

:57:52.:57:54.

you just see the headlines and there's a lot of thought that goes

:57:55.:57:59.

into trying to make sure that the patients get the treatment they need

:58:00.:58:02.

and a lot of effort. You see it throughout the programme that people

:58:03.:58:06.

are trying hard to make sure patients get into hospital and get

:58:07.:58:11.

the treatment they need. There's almost eight competition between

:58:12.:58:13.

elective surgery and emergency surgery, you've got to make very

:58:14.:58:17.

difficult decisions, how hard is that? I think it's the inevitable

:58:18.:58:21.

consequence of having an Acute Hospital where you're both elective

:58:22.:58:28.

work and emergency work. At any time emergencies can disrupt your

:58:29.:58:31.

original pattern of work. You always have to make the best decisions for

:58:32.:58:35.

the patients in front of you. For some patients it's a matter of

:58:36.:58:39.

minutes and hours, for others it's a matter of hours and days. You can

:58:40.:58:43.

see that nicely illustrated, you have to make these decisions based

:58:44.:58:47.

upon whose care in the immediate future will make the most

:58:48.:58:50.

difference, it's pretty tough sometimes. There's another bit in

:58:51.:58:54.

the documentary talking about if there was a major incident it would

:58:55.:58:58.

be very hard to cope. We knew if there was an outbreak of something

:58:59.:59:02.

like the flu, the way it was looking at the end of October and November,

:59:03.:59:07.

it was going to be tough. As a result of that we've planned so that

:59:08.:59:11.

when we got into the difficult period that everyone in the NHS has

:59:12.:59:14.

experienced in the last week or two, those plans came to fruition, and

:59:15.:59:18.

that allowed us to keep our patients safe.

:59:19.:59:23.

Forgiven much indeed. It is -- thank you very much indeed. It is an

:59:24.:59:34.

insight into the decisions that take place in a busy hospital like this.

:59:35.:59:37.

And you can see Hospital tonight on BBC Two at nine o'clock.

:59:38.:59:40.

The heroic actions of a sailor who was born profoundly deaf has

:59:41.:59:42.

seen him beat Olympic medallists and world record holders to one

:59:43.:59:45.

Gavin Reid, who's from Edinburgh, won Yachtsman of the Year

:59:46.:59:50.

for leading a massive rescue during the Clipper

:59:51.:59:52.

What's even more remarkable is that he had zero sailing

:59:53.:59:58.

experience before taking up the challenge.

:59:59.:59:59.

With the trophy on the server as well. What was it like to receive

:00:00.:00:11.

this, ahead of Olympic heroes and some of the greats in the game?

:00:12.:00:16.

Well, I went into the day with no expectations, so to come away with

:00:17.:00:23.

such a prodigious award, previous winners like Dame Ellen McArthur, it

:00:24.:00:26.

was just an unbelievable honour and I'm only pleased with it. And very

:00:27.:00:30.

well-deserved. Take us through what happened. You are on a round the

:00:31.:00:35.

world race, another yacht gets into trouble, what did you do? We were on

:00:36.:00:40.

the clip around the world yacht race when we had a distress call about

:00:41.:00:43.

midnight off the coast of Australia. A man had been stranded, so we

:00:44.:00:48.

stopped our racing and proceeded to make haste to their boat. Then I

:00:49.:00:54.

jumped into the water, because the conditions were really, really

:00:55.:00:58.

rough, and then I went up to help and handle him. You make it sound

:00:59.:01:02.

really simple there, but the water was so rough that you couldn't get

:01:03.:01:06.

the votes together, so you had to jump in. We consider guy on the top

:01:07.:01:10.

of the mast stuck there. When you say it unravelled him, it took two

:01:11.:01:16.

hours. Yes, he had been up there for seven hours already, so he was

:01:17.:01:27.

getting a bit panicky. I was up there for about two hours, getting

:01:28.:01:29.

battered about myself, and just constantly trying to unravel it, it

:01:30.:01:32.

required a lot of patience. A lot of patience and bravery as well. Did

:01:33.:01:34.

you think about that at the time, or was there too much adrenaline? Yes,

:01:35.:01:38.

there was a lot of adrenaline, I had never sell before so it was all very

:01:39.:01:42.

new to me. Thankfully did gets in training from Clipper, who were very

:01:43.:01:46.

helpful and safety minded. It was just kind of off-the-cuff. Why you?

:01:47.:01:54.

Why were you the person who went in? Well, madly I volunteered. Thinking

:01:55.:01:57.

back to it maybe should not have done. It was just one in the

:01:58.:02:02.

morning, and I said I would do it, because I had been up masts before

:02:03.:02:06.

and I had to do the job. Was happening with the crew of the other

:02:07.:02:10.

boat, they were incapacitated in some way? You had to do this

:02:11.:02:14.

otherwise they would have been stranded. Unfortunately there were

:02:15.:02:21.

only five other crew members on the vote, one already had a broken man,

:02:22.:02:27.

one had all the attempted a rescue and had fallen seasick, and there

:02:28.:02:30.

were only two other people on the boat. Things could have turned out

:02:31.:02:35.

considerably worse for them. About 12 hours later, we got hit by 100

:02:36.:02:41.

knots of wind, and we were blown quite far, but they actually got

:02:42.:02:46.

beat later on so it could have been a lot worse. Tell us about the

:02:47.:02:49.

future, because you are new to sailing, you have won this

:02:50.:02:55.

incredibly award, what next? Sailing around the world has ignited a real

:02:56.:02:58.

passion to continue doing it. Next up for me is to try and go

:02:59.:03:04.

professional, try and maybe do some training, certainly gets on

:03:05.:03:08.

qualifications and just really take advantage of this opportunity. I

:03:09.:03:12.

would have you about any day, if I had one. My dad is almost deaf, and

:03:13.:03:17.

he has two lip-read a lot, so the idea of being out on the sea,

:03:18.:03:21.

dealing with all that and the background noise is remarkable,

:03:22.:03:25.

congratulations. Thank you. And it is one of the best rookies I think I

:03:26.:03:30.

have ever seen. It is lovely. Thank you to coming in.

:03:31.:03:33.

In a moment, we shall be taking to the pool table so Dan can

:03:34.:03:36.

try his hand at potting a few balls with the man behind what's been

:03:37.:03:39.

Can't get much worse, really, can we? Thanks!

:03:40.:03:43.

Millions of people have now watched the video of the stunt

:03:44.:03:45.

which involves a golf club, two flights of stairs,

:03:46.:03:48.

that is the epic put on by this man, Shane O'Hara. You have brought into

:03:49.:04:46.

the studio for us, this is slightly less dramatic but should be possible

:04:47.:04:54.

to do. In theory, it should be easier, but my credibility is in

:04:55.:04:59.

tatters. From early on. That was down to Louisa's effort, letters --

:05:00.:05:08.

let's chez Watts happened earlier. He we go, Minchin, this is the big

:05:09.:05:14.

test. You need to hit it a little harder than that. That is officially

:05:15.:05:23.

the worst trick shot ever. I have put pressure on myself, because

:05:24.:05:27.

Louisa said I have to have a go. Theoretically all the boys should --

:05:28.:05:31.

or the ball should go one in each pocket. In theory. You are worried

:05:32.:05:36.

about this, aren't you. Ready, come on, Walker, time to deliver the

:05:37.:05:46.

goods. Come on! Yes! Right, I am retiring, goodbye everybody. I have

:05:47.:05:52.

to say massive respect to you, Dan. Anyway, I'm going to go and try and

:05:53.:05:54.

practice later. Coming up, we'll be hearing

:05:55.:05:56.

how to live for a year First a last, brief look

:05:57.:05:58.

at the headlines where I'll be back with the lunchtime

:05:59.:06:01.

news at 1.30 on BBC One. You are still smiling, aren't you.

:06:02.:07:50.

Let's never mention it again. I know you will! Until after the programme!

:07:51.:07:53.

If you've ever regretted blowing a few quid on something frivolous,

:07:54.:07:55.

then you might want to take some pointers from our next guest.

:07:56.:07:58.

Financial journalist Michelle McGagh was so sick of wasting cash,

:07:59.:08:00.

she challenged herself not to spend her money on anything

:08:01.:08:03.

but the absolute essentials for an entire year.

:08:04.:08:05.

She has done it. You managed to achieve it, you have written a book

:08:06.:08:17.

about it as well. What kicked this thought off in your mind? Were you

:08:18.:08:21.

worried about frivolously spinning your cash? Yes, it was a little bit

:08:22.:08:26.

to do with cash, I am a financial journalists I spent ten years

:08:27.:08:29.

telling other people what to do their money and not taking my own

:08:30.:08:33.

advice. A couple of years ago, I bought a new house, me and my

:08:34.:08:36.

husband, put all our stuff in the storage unit, living with the very

:08:37.:08:40.

basics. Back to the storage unit now and again and every time I went back

:08:41.:08:45.

foot why have I got all this stuff? The day came and I looked in the

:08:46.:08:50.

storage, and there was a box that said not needed, and I thought why

:08:51.:08:54.

have I got it. We got rid of about 80% of our possessions. How? Did you

:08:55.:09:00.

sell them? Sought a lot, gave a lot of friends and family, donated to

:09:01.:09:03.

charity, and then I heard about buy nothing day. I thought I bet I could

:09:04.:09:09.

do that for a yet, so I did. So you usually have to spend money on some

:09:10.:09:13.

things, so what did you choose is the essentials? I had to pay my

:09:14.:09:18.

mortgage, my utilities, like council tax, also my broadband and phone so

:09:19.:09:22.

I could work. So the things that you sort of have two spent to keep a

:09:23.:09:25.

roof over your head. But there was no impulse buying, you did not

:09:26.:09:30.

budget for holidays. Obviously food was in there, but anything else, you

:09:31.:09:34.

when walking down the high street thinking that is a nice pair of

:09:35.:09:37.

shoes or whatever. Definitely not. They were completely out of the

:09:38.:09:41.

question. I had a food budget as well, and I was about it. After the

:09:42.:09:46.

direct debits go out like they do at the beginning of the month for

:09:47.:09:48.

everybody, then I just had my food budget and that was it. What did you

:09:49.:09:54.

miss most, that would be the question? Lots of things I missed, a

:09:55.:10:03.

girls's holidayed to Ibiza, which was hard, everyone had a great time

:10:04.:10:06.

without me. Those easy thing like going to the pub with your mates are

:10:07.:10:11.

going out to dinner with your family, I had to find new ways

:10:12.:10:14.

around all of that. One thing I really did miss was moisturiser

:10:15.:10:17.

because it did not go on the essentials list. You should have put

:10:18.:10:23.

it on! I really regretted it, after the first winter, I did not have a

:10:24.:10:26.

transport winter, so every bit of travelling was on my bike or by

:10:27.:10:30.

foot, so I looked pretty weatherworn by the end of the year. Speaking to

:10:31.:10:35.

Peter Davidson yesterday he went on this sugar free farm, he came off

:10:36.:10:39.

sugar like everyone else did, but then eventually he saw the benefits

:10:40.:10:43.

of not being on it. Did it become a positive experience by the end?

:10:44.:10:48.

Definitely. Financially obviously it is a good idea not just a waste

:10:49.:10:52.

money, to put money towards longer-term goals. That is always a

:10:53.:10:57.

good plan, but there is also lots of, almost like a lifestyle benefit

:10:58.:11:02.

of realising I didn't actually need to buy things to make me happy. I

:11:03.:11:06.

think a lot of people get sucked into that, we buy something because

:11:07.:11:10.

we are happy or we are sad all we are treating ourselves or just

:11:11.:11:12.

because we are bored, and maybe spending without thinking. I think

:11:13.:11:17.

if you have got disposable income and you have got money that you

:11:18.:11:20.

could possibly put to something bigger, a longer term goal, maybe we

:11:21.:11:24.

should be doing that, rather than just frittering it away. Some people

:11:25.:11:29.

will be working on incredibly tight budgets and doing exactly what you

:11:30.:11:32.

had to do because they have two as well. That's true, exactly true, and

:11:33.:11:38.

there is a very distinct line between poverty and frugality.

:11:39.:11:41.

Nobody chooses to live in poverty but we can choose to be frugal if we

:11:42.:11:46.

do have the disposable money. We have to bear in mind that people are

:11:47.:11:48.

budgeting to the absolute pounding this country, but if you do have the

:11:49.:11:53.

disposable money I think we have the responsibility to make the right

:11:54.:11:56.

decisions with it. Do you feel guilty when you pop into

:11:57.:11:59.

supermarkets for one thing and you end up spending ten or ?15, has

:12:00.:12:04.

changed the way you think about that? Yes, I definitely don't do

:12:05.:12:07.

that any more. I was one of those people, come home from work, you pop

:12:08.:12:11.

to the mini Metro supermarket and think I will just get some pasta and

:12:12.:12:15.

sauce, and you end up spending 15 quid and you're not sure where that

:12:16.:12:19.

money has even gone. I definitely don't do that any more, everything

:12:20.:12:23.

is organised, planned, budgeted for. You mentioned about social life,

:12:24.:12:26.

missing out on the girls holiday, going to the pub, you just

:12:27.:12:31.

presumably could not do that, so how did you see your friends? I did not

:12:32.:12:36.

live like a hermit for a year, and I was a bit worried about that. And

:12:37.:12:42.

you're not asking them to pay for you either? No, definitely not. The

:12:43.:12:47.

first few months was quite difficult, because I was trying

:12:48.:12:50.

almost to live my old life but the free and that did not work, and it

:12:51.:12:54.

made me a bit unhappy and a bit isolated. As the weather changed and

:12:55.:12:58.

spring came round, I thought OK, you can actually get out and about now,

:12:59.:13:03.

and even just going for a walk with a friend, rather than going to the

:13:04.:13:07.

pictures, go out for a walk, I lived in London, so I've got a wealth of

:13:08.:13:11.

museums and galleries and free events on my doorstep. To be honest,

:13:12.:13:15.

I was maybe just a bit too lazy to take advantage of them before. It

:13:16.:13:18.

was easier to go to the pub. What has changed the most? Probably my

:13:19.:13:25.

attitude, I am a lot more outgoing, adventurous, just willing to say yes

:13:26.:13:29.

now to a lot more things. Thank you. Thank you for saying yes to coming

:13:30.:13:30.

on. Lovely to speak to you. "The No Spend Year: How I spent less

:13:31.:13:32.

and lived more", is out tomorrow. That's all from

:13:33.:13:36.

Breakfast this morning. We'll be back tomorrow

:13:37.:13:37.

morning from six. We asked you who's left you feeling

:13:38.:13:40.

ripped off when it comes to your holidays and you came back with

:13:41.:13:43.

a catalogue of travel disasters. It's a nightmare.

:13:44.:13:50.

Wake me up from it, please.

:13:51.:13:53.
