Hello, this is Breakfast,

0:00:050:00:11

with Charlie Stayt

and Naga Munchetty.

0:00:110:00:12

Donald Trump abandons

his plans to visit

0:00:120:00:14

Britain next month.

0:00:140:00:15

The US President had been due

to open the new American embassy

0:00:150:00:18

in London, with protests

planned by groups opposed

0:00:180:00:20

to his administration.

0:00:200:00:24

In the past hour, he's tweeted

that he has no intention of cutting

0:00:240:00:27

the ribbon because the building

represents a bad deal

0:00:270:00:29

for the United States.

0:00:290:00:32

Tributes are paid to an 18-year-old

woman who's died after catching

0:00:470:00:53

the flu virus, as figures show

a significant surge in cases.

0:00:530:00:56

The devastation continues

from the California mudslides.

0:00:560:00:59

Officials say four children

are among the 17 people confirmed

0:00:590:01:02

to have been killed.

0:01:020:01:07

The devastation continues

from the California mudslides.

0:01:070:01:09

Officials say four children

are among the 17 people confirmed

0:01:090:01:11

to have been killed.

0:01:110:01:12

The way we bank, borrow

and save is about to change forever

0:01:120:01:16

and it starts tomorrow.

0:01:160:01:17

It's called Open Banking and means

you'll be able to ask your bank

0:01:170:01:20

to share your details with other

companies to get better deals.

0:01:200:01:23

I'll explain all you need to know.

0:01:230:01:25

In sport, it's too late

to make any difference,

0:01:250:01:28

but the referee, who awarded

a controversial penalty

0:01:280:01:30

which eventually cost

Northern Ireland their World Cup

0:01:300:01:32

play-off against Switzerland,

has now admitted, he made a mistake.

0:01:320:01:35

And as the Queen marks 65 years

since her Coronation,

0:01:350:01:37

for the first time Her Majesty lifts

the lid on what life

0:01:370:01:41

is like when you have

to wear a crown.

0:01:410:01:47

You can't look down to read the

speech, you have to take the speech

0:01:470:01:52

up because if you do, your neck

could break.

Today, misty and

0:01:520:02:00

frosty. Details on that in your

weekend forecast a news on even cold

0:02:000:02:06

weather on the way next week. That

is next.

0:02:060:02:19

In the last hour Donald Trump has

confirmed he won't visit

0:02:240:02:27

Britain next month.

0:02:270:02:28

The US President tweeted that he had

cancelled the planned

0:02:280:02:31

visit as he didn't want open

the new American embassy

0:02:310:02:33

commissioned by his

predecessor, Barack Obama.

0:02:330:02:35

Dan Johnson has got the latest.

0:02:350:02:37

After nearly 60 years flying

above London's Grosvenor Square,

0:02:370:02:39

the Stars and Stripes

were lowered this week,

0:02:390:02:41

ready for the opening

of the new US embassy.

0:02:410:02:44

It is a $1 billion building

on the Southbank, and Donald Trump

0:02:440:02:47

was due to officially

open it next month.

0:02:470:02:50

Is it because it would be

embarrassed the Queen and the rest

0:03:300:03:34

of the UK. Theresa May was the first

world leader to reach out to the new

0:03:340:03:38

president and a return trip, a state

visit, was promised soon but then,

0:03:380:03:44

the President strained at the

special relationship by sharing on

0:03:440:03:47

line far right videos from the group

called Britain first. When Theresa

0:03:470:03:51

May command -- condemned, he even

retorted. Just last weekend, she

0:03:510:03:59

confirmed the invite still stands.

He is taking decisions in the best

0:03:590:04:02

interests of the United States.

0:04:020:04:08

interests of the United States. And

she has done over six remarkable

0:04:130:04:17

decades.

0:04:170:04:25

decades.

At opening this place was

never the same as a state visit.

0:04:250:04:30

Meeting the Queen is still on,

expected this year. The President is

0:04:300:04:34

denying this decision was down to

politics but after he offended more

0:04:340:04:39

countries with a foulmouthed remark

last night, the list of places he is

0:04:390:04:43

welcome certainly isn't growing.

0:04:430:04:45

We can talk now to our

North America Corrspondent,

0:04:450:04:48

Peter Bowes who is in our

Los Angeles studio.

0:04:480:04:56

What has Donald Trump been tweeting.

0:04:570:05:04

The tweet came out at about midnight

east coast time. Essentially he is

0:05:040:05:10

saying that he did not want to be

associated with a decision that half

0:05:100:05:16

-- harks back to the Obama

administration, that the decision

0:05:160:05:20

was a bad decision as he put it, a

bad deal and he didn't want to cut

0:05:200:05:25

the ribbon. It is interesting

because I have here a press release

0:05:250:05:28

from the US Embassy which is dated

the second of October 2008. Before

0:05:280:05:34

the President was elected into

office. Announcing this new embassy

0:05:340:05:38

on the Southbank in London. It says

the new embassy will close -- serve

0:05:380:05:46

as a catalyst to the regeneration of

the area. It was a decision made

0:05:460:05:51

before President Obama. There is a

lot more that we will hear about

0:05:510:05:55

this controversy. Another one the

President has been involved in. Some

0:05:550:06:00

very tough language that he has been

using, uncouth language many would

0:06:000:06:05

say in terms of the debate about

immigration. It is caused a huge row

0:06:050:06:12

this year 's. He said Whiley having

these people from these countries?

0:06:120:06:20

He used a crude expression to

describe Katie, El Salvador and

0:06:200:06:25

other countries. What do we want all

these people from Africa here? --

0:06:250:06:31

Haiti. We should have people from

places like Norway. The

0:06:310:06:38

Nigel Farage has clarified remarks

he made yesterday calling

0:06:380:06:40

for a second EU referendum.

0:06:400:06:41

The former UKIP leader has said

although another vote

0:06:410:06:44

was the "last thing" he wanted,

he thought it might be forced

0:06:440:06:47

on the country by parliament.

0:06:470:06:48

Our Political Correspondent

Eleanor Garnier joins us

0:06:480:06:50

now from Westminster.

0:06:500:06:58

no longer an MP, Nigel Bharucha.

But

his words resonate with Amy.

0:06:580:07:08

Certainly, the idea of a second

referendum is not in Nigel Farage's

0:07:080:07:15

gift but it seems like an unlikely

alliance.

Nigel Farage, the man

0:07:150:07:20

instrumental in getting that

referendum, his long fought

0:07:200:07:25

referendum to leave the EU, agreeing

with remain campaigners who believe

0:07:250:07:29

the referendum should be revisited.

We had some Labour MPs, Liberal

0:07:290:07:33

Democrats agreeing with Nigel

Farage. The former leader, Nick

0:07:330:07:37

Clegg, tweeted I agree with Nigel.

His motivations for another vote are

0:07:370:07:44

different from those who want to

keep open the option of staying in

0:07:440:07:48

the EU. He believes that there was

another boat, people would back

0:07:480:07:53

Brexit and it would end the moaning

of the whingeing of some of the

0:07:530:07:57

Remain campaigners.

The Nick Clegg

and Tony Blair types, they will

0:07:570:08:04

never give up. They will go on

whingeing and whining and moaning.

0:08:040:08:09

Maybe, just maybe, we should have a

second referendum on EU membership.

0:08:090:08:19

The whole thing?

Of course. I think

if we had a second referendum, we

0:08:190:08:31

could make it for a generation.

He

said he was clarifying his remarks

0:08:310:08:36

and the second referendum was the

last thing he wanted but Parliament

0:08:360:08:39

might demand one so Brexit

supporters should be prepared for

0:08:390:08:44

one last battle. Whatever the

result, because opinion polls are

0:08:440:08:49

not clear on what it would be, other

Brexit supporters have not agree

0:08:490:08:53

with him. The current Ukip leader

said it would undermine the fabric

0:08:530:09:00

of our democratic intervals. Number

ten has rejected the idea, saying

0:09:000:09:06

the British people had made their

decision.

Thank you for explaining

0:09:060:09:11

all that. We will talk to Nigel

Farage about this. He is on the

0:09:110:09:16

programme at 830.

0:09:160:09:17

An 18-year-old from the Scottish

highlands has died after contracting

0:09:170:09:20

the flu virus.

0:09:200:09:21

Bethany Walker was

airlifted to hospital

0:09:210:09:23

in Inverness from her home

in Wester Ross, but her illness had

0:09:230:09:26

developed into pneumonia and staff

were unable to save her.

0:09:260:09:28

In England, there has been a sharp

rise in the number of flu cases seen

0:09:280:09:33

by GPs - up 78% from last week.

0:09:330:09:36

Police have released

the names of 17 people -

0:09:390:09:42

including four children -

who are confirmed to have died

0:09:420:09:44

in a mudslide which struck a small

town in southern California.

0:09:440:09:47

All of the dead were

residents of Montecito.

0:09:470:09:49

There's confusion about how

many people are missing

0:09:490:09:52

with one official estimate putting

the figure as high as 43.

0:09:520:09:55

Our North America Correspondent

James Cook reports.

0:09:550:10:01

In Montecito, the authorities insist

they are still in rescue mode but

0:10:010:10:05

the chances of finding anyone alive

are now slim. Police have released

0:10:050:10:09

the names of the first victims to be

identified. They include for

0:10:090:10:15

children aged three, six, ten and

12. And the number of people missing

0:10:150:10:20

may be higher than first thought.

We

certainly hope there are going to be

0:10:200:10:25

far fewer than that. We hope there

is not going to be any more but

0:10:250:10:29

realistically we suspect we are

going to continue to have discovery

0:10:290:10:32

of people who were killed.

Questions

are now being asked about whether

0:10:320:10:36

this area should have been

evacuated. Nowell fled with her two

0:10:360:10:42

children just before the storm but

many of my neighbours did not.

This

0:10:420:10:48

is like a warzone here. There are

homes that are just missing and I

0:10:480:10:53

walked down the street and I see

balls and toys and bicycles and

0:10:530:10:56

shoes and socks.

The storm didn't

just strike on the Pacific coast.

0:10:560:11:01

This was a surreal scene in the LA

suburb of Burbank is a mudslide

0:11:010:11:07

swept downhill. But the damage in --

Montecito was far worse. The

0:11:070:11:13

mudslide came roaring down here,

sweeping are before it and if you

0:11:130:11:16

want to know how houses can be swept

from their foundations so easily,

0:11:160:11:22

this is the answer. Just look at the

size of the boulders that were

0:11:220:11:26

pushed down from the mountains. Rain

was not the only cause of this

0:11:260:11:30

carnage. The debris was watched --

washed down of mountains stripped

0:11:300:11:35

bare and baked hard by a huge

wildfire. James Cook, BBC News,

0:11:350:11:40

Montecito.

0:11:400:11:42

The Queen has been talking

about some of the challenges

0:11:420:11:44

she faced at her Coronation,

including the weight

0:11:440:11:47

of the Imperial State Crown.

0:11:470:11:48

Her Majesty doesn't

normally do interviews,

0:11:480:11:50

but she spoke to the royal

commentator Alastair Bruce as part

0:11:500:11:53

of an upcoming BBC programme marking

the 65th anniversary

0:11:530:11:55

of the ceremony.

0:11:550:11:56

Our Royal Correspondent

Nicholas Witchell reports.

0:11:560:12:01

She famously doesn't do interviews.

This is probably as close as she

0:12:010:12:05

will get. A conversation with

questions about the Coronation, the

0:12:050:12:10

Crown jewels and the Imperial State

Crown warned by her and her father,

0:12:100:12:13

King George VI.

Fortunately my

father and I have about the same

0:12:130:12:19

shaped head. Once you put it on, it

stays.

It remains itself. You have

0:12:190:12:25

to keep your head very still.

Yes,

and you can't look down to read the

0:12:250:12:29

speech, you have to take the speech

up because if you did, your neck

0:12:290:12:33

would break, it would fall off. So

there are some disadvantages to

0:12:330:12:38

crowns but otherwise, they are quite

important things.

She wrote her

0:12:380:12:43

coronation in the gold state coach.

It weighs four times. It's not built

0:12:430:12:47

for.

Horrible. It's not meant for

travelling in at all. Certainly

0:12:470:12:56

strung on leather. So it rocks

around a lot?

Not very comfortable.

0:12:560:13:02

Were you in it for a long time? I

wrote around London.

Really? We must

0:13:020:13:08

have gone for five miles. You can

only go at walking pace. The horses

0:13:080:13:13

couldn't possibly go any faster.

It's so heavy. 65 years later, a

0:13:130:13:19

monarch talking about her

coronation. The Crown, the real one.

0:13:190:13:27

You can watch the Coronation on BBC

One at eight o'clock this evening.

0:13:270:13:31

We will talk to Alistair admitted

later. A conversation with

0:13:310:13:36

questions. It wasn't an interview.

What have you got fries this

0:13:360:13:43

morning?

Do you remember a famous

incident last November? Northern

0:13:430:13:49

Ireland felt really hard done by

when a penalty was awarded against

0:13:490:13:53

them when it was judged that Cory

Evans had acted like that?

0:13:530:14:04

I threw a ball at you at the time. A

lot of anger about that. It cost

0:14:040:14:10

Northern Ireland a place in the

World Cup. Now, the referee awarded

0:14:100:14:13

that penalty which cost them so much

has admitted he made a mistake.

0:14:130:14:25

Romanian referee Ovidiu

Hategan, has accepted

0:14:250:14:27

that his handball decision

against Corry Evans was wrong.

0:14:270:14:29

Ricardo Rodriguez's penalty,

was the only goal in the two legs,

0:14:290:14:32

as Switzerland booked

a World Cup spot.

0:14:320:14:38

Tottenham's new stadium will host

an, American football game,

0:14:380:14:41

for the first time,

when the Seattle Seahawks play

0:14:410:14:43

the Oakland Raiders, in October.

0:14:430:14:44

It'll be the first, of three,

N.F.L games staged in London this

0:14:440:14:48

year.

0:14:480:14:48

British bobsleigher Bruce Tasker has

been ruled out of competing at next

0:14:480:14:51

month's Winter Olympics

after suffering a minor

0:14:510:14:53

stroke last week.

0:14:530:14:54

Tasker is expected to make a full

recovery and resume his bobsleigh

0:14:540:14:57

career next season.

0:14:570:15:00

And it's been a good start to 2018,

for Wales' Jamie Donaldson.

0:15:000:15:03

He got this hole-in-one

during his opening round at

0:15:030:15:06

the South Africa Open yesterday.

0:15:060:15:14

That was a good shot, wasn't it?

Just a bit.

Fabulous.

We will take a

0:15:160:15:23

look at the papers.

Sorry about the

rustling noises, we are getting

0:15:230:15:28

sorted out.

Let's take a look at the

front page of the Times, it is

0:15:280:15:34

taking a look at the flu problems,

thousands more patients went to

0:15:340:15:40

hospital with the flu last week.

Cases have risen by half and there

0:15:400:15:44

are renewed calls for compulsory

vaccinations for frontline NHS

0:15:440:15:47

staff. The Queen returning to

Buckingham Palace after her

0:15:470:15:52

coronation, and she has been talking

about the weight of wearing that

0:15:520:15:55

Crown. We will be talking to a royal

commentator who has been talking to

0:15:550:16:02

the Queen.

And on quite a few

papers, this is Bethany Walker, who

0:16:020:16:08

died despite being airlifted to

hospital when she first became ill

0:16:080:16:13

with the flu. We are hearing a lot

more about people who have been

0:16:130:16:18

affected by that.

The Daily Mail

also picturing Bethany Walker. Its

0:16:180:16:23

main story takes a look at Donald

Trump cancelling his visit to

0:16:230:16:30

Britain for an embassy opening, amid

two fears. He will not be made

0:16:300:16:36

welcome, and he has tweeted in the

last hour or so that he wasn't happy

0:16:360:16:40

about the positioning of the US

Embassy which was put out, all was

0:16:400:16:44

constructed under President Obama's

administration.

And on the front

0:16:440:16:51

page of the Mirror, if you are

confused about Nigel Farage's

0:16:510:16:56

comments, initially suggesting he

wanted a second referendum, he has

0:16:560:17:01

clarified to a degree saying he

thinks there is an air of

0:17:010:17:05

inevitability. It is not something

he seeks, a second referendum on the

0:17:050:17:09

EU votes, but we will be speaking to

Nigel Farage so we can hear what he

0:17:090:17:13

says for himself. That is coming up

at about 8:30am this morning.

How

0:17:130:17:17

many times can we talk about Brexit

in a week, do you think?

I dread to

0:17:170:17:23

think what to many!

What is the

issue this week?

Different

0:17:230:17:28

industries are jostling for position

as far as Brexit is concerned, be at

0:17:280:17:33

the car industry, retail. Yesterday

Theresa May had a lot of bank bosses

0:17:330:17:38

to Downing Street to talk about the

future they would have in the new EU

0:17:380:17:43

relationship. In the Financial Times

this morning, Theresa May to

0:17:430:17:46

prioritise City in Brexit talks.

That will anger a low of people, as

0:17:460:17:52

there is anger point that are city

in terms of the financial crisis and

0:17:520:17:56

its role in it. It is one of our

biggest exports, though, and a huge

0:17:560:18:01

employer of staff in the UK. A lot

of people saying these deals are all

0:18:010:18:05

done behind closed doors and if you

look at the front of the Telegraph

0:18:050:18:09

this morning, this big picture tells

you all you need to know, fingers on

0:18:090:18:15

lips, not giving anything away, and

the suggestion that all of these

0:18:150:18:19

deals are too secretive and many

people wanting to know what exactly

0:18:190:18:23

Theresa May has agreed with the bank

losses as far as Brexit talks are

0:18:230:18:27

concerned.

Talking of deals, there

is a lot of talk about the transfer

0:18:270:18:32

from Arsenal of Alexis Sanchez, it

looks like he is going to

0:18:320:18:37

Manchester, we thought Manchester

City but a lot of papers saying

0:18:370:18:41

Manchester United are planning to

hijack that deal, but other papers

0:18:410:18:48

disputing that, saying no way, Jose.

Apparently he has turned down

0:18:480:18:53

Manchester United and has his heart

set on going to Manchester City. Far

0:18:530:18:58

more important is that in Saudi

Arabia tonight women will be able to

0:18:580:19:02

go to a football match for the first

time, which is pretty incredible,

0:19:020:19:07

isn't it? One friend says she has

been waiting since she was ten years

0:19:070:19:12

old and doesn't really know how to

explain how she is feeling today.

0:19:120:19:20

This is the passion of Saudi women

at a foot or game in full when Saudi

0:19:200:19:24

Arabia played Australia, because

they were allowed to go to that

0:19:240:19:27

match in London, but until tonight

they have not been allowed to go

0:19:270:19:31

inside a football stadium. They

could watch it on TV, but that will

0:19:310:19:35

all change.

Are they sitting in the

stand amongst men?

I think there are

0:19:350:19:41

segregated areas for now, at least,

but at least they are in.

0:19:410:19:44

Here is Matt with a look

at this morning's weather.

0:19:440:19:49

Here is Matt with a look

at this morning's weather.

0:19:490:19:50

It was really foggy yesterday, has

that cleared up?

No, same again

0:19:500:19:54

today. If you are fed up with great,

I have news of changes on the way.

0:19:540:20:00

Foremost, a grey start to the day.

Lots of cloud and some fog as well

0:20:000:20:06

across western dense patches of fog.

You may go from good visibility to

0:20:060:20:11

bad visibility in a short space of

time. And frost where the sky is

0:20:110:20:15

clear, in northern fringes of

England and Wales, temperatures

0:20:150:20:21

above freezing, too much cloud to

have dropped overnight, but

0:20:210:20:24

relentless grey skies for the vast

majority. Mist and fog across

0:20:240:20:28

western areas will take awhile to if

it does at all. The cloud thickener

0:20:280:20:33

finny scenarios for patchy light

rain and drizzle. Parts of western

0:20:330:20:37

Wales, north-west England and into

Scotland will clear up, we will see

0:20:370:20:40

sunshine yet again, but sunshine or

cloud, temperatures around where

0:20:400:20:43

they should be this time of year.

Around seven to nine degrees. Always

0:20:430:20:48

feeling better where you have the

sunny conditions. In the tonight,

0:20:480:20:52

some patchy drizzle across eastern

areas. Most places will be driver

0:20:520:20:55

time but through the night,

gradually turning letter from the

0:20:550:20:59

west in Northern Ireland. The same

in the far west of Wales and also

0:20:590:21:02

across Cornwall. Breezy conditions

with it. Temperatures about six or

0:21:020:21:06

seven degrees and the chance of a

touch of frost and some clearer

0:21:060:21:10

spots elsewhere. Northern Scotland

the Best of that into Saturday

0:21:100:21:13

morning. For many, as we go into the

weekend, grey skies for many.

0:21:130:21:17

Northern and eastern parts of

Scotland, maybe eastern parts of

0:21:170:21:22

England, as the breeze picks up, a

damp day. In Northern Ireland, not

0:21:220:21:25

clearing until later on. Turning

letter during the afternoon the part

0:21:250:21:28

of western Scotland, much of western

Wales, Cornwall and then into parts

0:21:280:21:32

of Devon as well. Temperatures

fairly similar to today's values.

0:21:320:21:35

Saturday night our weather front

grinds to a halt. We have wind is

0:21:350:21:40

coming in from either direction. It

just fizzles out to bring a rather

0:21:400:21:43

damp day across parts of Scotland,

western England and Wales. Patchy,

0:21:430:21:48

light rain and drizzle. Further east

a chilly start, but brightening up

0:21:480:21:52

as the breeze starts to pick up

during the day. By the end of the

0:21:520:21:56

day, wet and windy across parts of

western Scotland and Northern

0:21:560:21:59

Ireland. From Saturday night in the

Monday we will see wet and windy

0:21:590:22:03

weather. Gales and severe gales

sweeping its way eastwards. As that

0:22:030:22:07

departs Monday and into the end of

next week, the rest of next week,

0:22:070:22:11

low pressure to the east of Iceland

dominating things. Firing down some

0:22:110:22:14

pretty cold they are all way from

Greenland. So if you are fed up with

0:22:140:22:19

the grey and fog, some colder

conditions to go with it, but

0:22:190:22:24

clearing, may be severe gales for

one or two, and frequent showers,

0:22:240:22:28

heavy with hail and thunder, and

also some sleet and snow as well.

0:22:280:22:32

But at least if you have had it a

bit grey, a change coming.

0:22:320:22:38

Let's return to our main story,

and the news that Donald Trump has

0:22:380:22:41

abandoned his plans to visit

Britain next month.

0:22:410:22:43

Let's discuss this in more detail

now with John Tonge,

0:22:430:22:46

who is a politics professor

at the University of Liverpool.

0:22:460:22:49

It was a day of wavering

in Westminster yesterday.

0:22:490:22:51

First, Nigel Farage suggested

he would like a second referendum

0:22:510:22:54

on leaving the EU.

0:22:540:22:55

Then he said, actually, he didn't.

0:22:550:23:03

He has a way about his tweets,

particularly. This happened in the

0:23:120:23:18

last hour

0:23:180:23:19

particularly. This happened in the

last hour and a quarter, around

0:23:190:23:21

midnight, we are told, he has put

this one on Twitter. What do you

0:23:210:23:25

make of his explanation for not

coming?

He didn't waste any

0:23:250:23:29

opportunity to criticise the

previous administration. He says it

0:23:290:23:33

was an unnecessary sale of the

previous embassy and all Obama's

0:23:330:23:37

fault. That has been a consistent

theme for Donald Trump, he has tried

0:23:370:23:41

to reverse a lot of what Barack

Obama did. It will be a relief to

0:23:410:23:46

many in the UK. Critics will say one

visit is enough to the UK, and let's

0:23:460:23:51

remember the State visit is still

on. It will probably happen sometime

0:23:510:23:55

next autumn. This is the

cancellation of the embassy opening

0:23:550:23:58

visit, which I suppose you could say

in terms of the special relationship

0:23:580:24:02

that might be a bit embarrassing,

but frankly there will be an awful

0:24:020:24:06

lot of relief, I think, in the

British government. The level of

0:24:060:24:09

security which is required for a

presidential visit will be colossal

0:24:090:24:13

and there are bound to be processed,

and frankly you don't want that. You

0:24:130:24:17

might even put off the state visit

had it gone wrong with the opening

0:24:170:24:21

of the embassy.

Should we read much

into it in terms of the

0:24:210:24:25

relationship, or take it that Donald

Trump doesn't want anything to do

0:24:250:24:29

with the old administration, and it

is the politics of the US and not

0:24:290:24:33

internationally?

Welcome offer all

the bluster, I don't think they have

0:24:330:24:37

really developed a relationship.

There has been friction over the

0:24:370:24:43

Britain First retweet, and the

response from the American

0:24:430:24:46

administration was very, very sharp

indeed. So things have been frosty.

0:24:460:24:50

There is no sun on the horizon with

this trade deal which Britain wants

0:24:500:24:56

to complete with the UK fairly

quickly. All the talk of the special

0:24:560:25:01

relationship, I don't think there is

one at the moment with the Trump

0:25:010:25:05

administration.

So are the sort of

vaguely connected, Nigel Farage,

0:25:050:25:08

claiming to be pals with Donald

Trump. We will speak to him later,

0:25:080:25:13

because he has been clarifying some

comments he made. Could there be

0:25:130:25:17

another referendum? Here sort of

saying that he feels there is a

0:25:170:25:21

sense of inevitability about it, if

for no other reason than to shut

0:25:210:25:24

down those voices from elsewhere. Do

you want to talk us through what

0:25:240:25:28

mechanisms they could be for another

referendum?

I think it is

0:25:280:25:32

inconceivable there would be another

referendum of simply remain versus

0:25:320:25:35

leave. The call from Nigel Farage,

although he has backtracked from it

0:25:350:25:40

somewhat, I don't think that is

politically tenable. Both parties

0:25:400:25:45

have ruled that out categorically.

What might happen is that if the EU

0:25:450:25:49

offers us an unacceptable trade deal

the Westminster Parliament could

0:25:490:25:52

vote that down. And then we are not

in the EU land, we are not in the

0:25:520:25:59

single market land, not in the

customs unit land, and then what do

0:25:590:26:03

we do? Do we go back to the European

Union and seek a better deal? And at

0:26:030:26:10

some point, do we put the terms of

that deal to the British people? So

0:26:100:26:14

they could be a second referendum on

the terms of any deal. If the UK

0:26:140:26:19

parliament says the deal that the EU

is offering is not good enough, then

0:26:190:26:23

at some point the people may be

entitled to on whether what the EU

0:26:230:26:29

is offering is good enough. So I

wouldn't rule out a second

0:26:290:26:33

referendum, but it won't be a

straightforward remain versus leave.

0:26:330:26:37

It is not as simple as that. You

simply cannot rerun what happened on

0:26:370:26:42

23 June 20 16.

Always good to have

you on the sofa, thank you

0:26:420:30:04

again, Sunday mostly dry, very windy

by the end of the day. Rain on

0:30:040:30:06

Monday.

0:30:060:30:06

I'm back with the latest

from the BBC London newsroom

0:30:060:30:09

in half an hour.

0:30:090:30:10

Bye for now.

0:30:100:30:18

Hello - this is Breakfast

with Charlie Stayt and Naga

0:30:200:30:23

Munchetty.

0:30:230:30:23

We'll bring you the latest news

and sport in just a moment.

0:30:230:30:26

Here's what's coming

up on Breakfast today.

0:30:260:30:28

The way we manage our money

is getting a shake-up.

0:30:280:30:31

We'll look at whether Open Banking,

will really get you a better deal

0:30:310:30:34

on current accounts and savings.

0:30:340:30:42

Her Majesty's verdict

0:30:440:30:48

on the golden coach that

took her to the Coronation.

0:30:480:30:51

We'll speak to the man who managed

to get the Monarch to break

0:30:510:30:54

the spell of pomp and pageantry

of that day for a new documentary.

0:30:540:30:57

-- From pulpits to parishioners.

0:30:580:31:00

We'll meet the vicars who feature

in a new series that looks

0:31:000:31:03

at the role they have to play

in rural communities

0:31:030:31:06

and how their faith fits

in the modern world.

0:31:060:31:13

In the last hour, Donald Trump has

confirmed he will not visit Britain

0:31:130:31:17

next month. He tweeted that he had

cancelled a planned visit as he did

0:31:170:31:21

not want to open the new American

Embassy commissioned by his

0:31:210:31:24

predecessor, Barack Obama.

0:31:240:31:30

After nearly 60 years flying a love

-- flying above London's Grosvenor

0:31:310:31:37

Square, the Stars and Stripes were

lowered ready to the opening of the

0:31:370:31:40

new US embassy. It's billion-dollar

building on the Southbank and Donald

0:31:400:31:44

Trump was due to open it next month.

Now we know he won't and early this

0:31:440:31:49

morning, he posted his reasons on

Twitter:

0:31:490:31:55

Twitter: but did the prospect of

protests like this also put off?

0:32:150:32:19

This was the response to his ban on

travellers from certain Muslim

0:32:190:32:23

countries. A petition drew 1.8

million signatures with calls to ban

0:32:230:32:28

him.

It shouldn't be a state visit

because it would be embarrassing to

0:32:280:32:33

the Queen and the rest of the UK.

Theresa May was the first world

0:32:330:32:37

leader to reach out to the new

president and a return trip, a state

0:32:370:32:42

visit, was promised soon. But then

the President strain the special

0:32:420:32:47

relationship by sharing on line far

right videos from the group called

0:32:470:32:52

Britain First. When Theresa May

condemned, he then retorted. Just

0:32:520:32:57

last weekend, she confirmed the

invite still stands.

He is taking

0:32:570:33:02

decisions in the best interests of

the United States.

And he is coming

0:33:020:33:06

to this country?

You will be coming

to the country.

The Foreign

0:33:060:33:09

Secretary denied the Queen would be

embarrassed.

I think Her Majesty the

0:33:090:33:13

Queen is capable of taking this

American president or any American

0:33:130:33:18

president in her stride, as she has

done over six remarkable decades.

0:33:180:33:23

Let's be clear. Opening this place

was never the same as a state visit.

0:33:230:33:27

It would have been a shorter, less

formal trip. Meeting the Queen is

0:33:270:33:32

still on, expected this year, but no

date has been set. The President is

0:33:320:33:37

denying this decision is down to

politics but after he offended more

0:33:370:33:42

countries with a foulmouthed remark

last night, the list of places he is

0:33:420:33:46

welcome certainly isn't growing.

0:33:460:33:50

An 18-year-old from the Scottish

highlands has died after contracting

0:33:500:33:53

the flu virus.

0:33:530:33:54

Bethany Walker was

airlifted to hospital

0:33:540:33:56

in Inverness from her home

in Wester Ross, but her illness had

0:33:560:33:59

developed into pneumonia and staff

were unable to save her.

0:33:590:34:02

Elsewhere, in England,

there has been a sharp rise

0:34:020:34:04

in the number of flu

cases seen by GPs -

0:34:040:34:07

up 78 per cent from last week.

0:34:070:34:14

The conduct of the media is expected

to be examined by the independent

0:34:140:34:18

review into the response

to the Manchester Arena bombing.

0:34:180:34:20

22 people were killed when a bomb

was set off after a pop

0:34:200:34:24

concert at the venue in May.

0:34:240:34:25

Several of the bereaved families

have raised concerns

0:34:250:34:28

about the reporting of the attack.

0:34:280:34:29

The review will also look

at the role played by social media.

0:34:290:34:32

The Queen has been talking

about some of the challenges

0:34:320:34:35

she faced

0:34:350:34:36

at her Coronation 65 years ago.

0:34:360:34:37

As part of a BBC programme,

she spoke candidly about her journey

0:34:370:34:41

to the catherdral and the heaviness

of the crown she wore

0:34:410:34:44

when she was coronated.

0:34:440:34:45

What

0:34:450:34:45

'The Coronation' will air

on BBC One at 8pm this Sunday.

0:34:450:34:49

You can't look down to read

the speech, you have to take

0:34:490:34:53

the speech up because

if you do, your neck

0:34:530:34:55

could break.

0:34:550:34:58

So there are some disadvantages

to crowns but otherwise,

0:34:580:35:00

they are quite important things.

0:35:000:35:08

a butcher who got frozen in his own

freezer described how he used black

0:35:140:35:19

pudding. The freeze door blew shut

behind him. He was stranded in

0:35:190:35:26

temperatures less than -20 degrees.

He says he used the sausages are

0:35:260:35:31

battering ram on the door's release

mechanism.

I couldn't work out how

0:35:310:35:35

to do it initially. Then I found the

black pudding stick and tried to get

0:35:350:35:41

an angle on this button.

0:35:410:35:49

an angle on this button. As you can

see, it's not that easy now.

Anyone

0:35:490:35:55

who is trapped in a freezer now,

courtesy of a butcher in Devon.

0:35:550:36:03

Carrying a sausage, very useful.

The

World Championships, they are big

0:36:030:36:10

things, they would be very useful.

There is a black pudding World

0:36:100:36:14

Championships. You don't want to get

hit by one. Not that I have been.

0:36:140:36:19

Very useful to have around.

How big

are the black puddings?

It depends

0:36:190:36:27

on the category you're a competing

in. It's really not complicated.

0:36:270:36:39

Have you finished talking about

black pudding?

Yeah when we make

0:36:390:36:45

mistakes?

0:36:450:36:52

mistakes? When it's a big one that

costs your country a place of the

0:36:520:36:56

World Cup. It hurts now that the

referee has said.

0:36:560:37:02

The referee who awarded that

controversial penalty

0:37:020:37:03

which eventually cost

Northern Ireland their World Cup

0:37:030:37:06

play-off against Switzerland last

year has now admitted,

0:37:060:37:08

he made a mistake.

0:37:080:37:12

Ovidiu Hategan ruled

Northern Ireland's Corry Evans

0:37:120:37:20

blocked a shot, with his arm

during the first leg,

0:37:220:37:25

despite replays showing the ball

struck the player's shoulder.

0:37:250:37:29

Michael O'Neill's side went

on to lose the match 1-nil,

0:37:290:37:32

ending their hopes of reaching

a World Cup for the first time

0:37:320:37:35

in 32 years.

0:37:350:37:43

It was a sad and unpleasant moments

to me. Sad, because I made a

0:37:440:37:48

mistake. Painful, because with my

team of officials we had been

0:37:480:37:52

working well. In my world, the

referees are the same as the

0:37:520:37:56

goalkeepers. Everybody has made a

mistake.

Stephen Craig says two

0:37:560:38:04

months after the event, it is

pathetic.

0:38:040:38:06

With Andy Murray missing

through injury, British attention

0:38:060:38:09

at the Australian Open

will focus on Johanna Konta -

0:38:090:38:11

she's been drawn to face

the unseeded American,

0:38:110:38:13

Madison Brengle in the first round,

which starts on Monday.

0:38:130:38:16

The draw was made yesterday

with Roger Federer,

0:38:160:38:18

among the guests in Melbourne.

0:38:180:38:20

He'll start the defence of his title

against Aliash Bedene,

0:38:200:38:22

the former British number two,

who now represents his native

0:38:220:38:25

Slovenia.

0:38:250:38:27

Maria Sharapova, was also

at the draw, despite receiving

0:38:270:38:30

a drugs ban two years ago,

while competing in this

0:38:300:38:33

competition.

0:38:330:38:36

Espite England's recent Ashes

humiliation, Liam Livingstone says

0:38:360:38:38

he can't wait to start life

as a Test cricketer.

0:38:380:38:40

The 24-year-old batsman,

has been named in England's Test

0:38:400:38:43

side for the first time for March's

tour of New Zealand,

0:38:430:38:46

having impressed with big scores

in the one day game.

0:38:460:38:54

Will ship my stats stats show that

my strength is in Red Bull cricket.

0:39:060:39:10

I've already had a taste of

international experience with the

0:39:100:39:13

2020 this year and it will be nice

to go into the environment this time

0:39:130:39:17

with a lot more confidence in my

game.

0:39:170:39:25

game. The MBA returned to London

last night.

0:39:250:39:36

last night. The league

0:39:360:39:37

The American basketball league

is looking to expand its fanbase

0:39:370:39:40

to expand its fanbase

0:39:400:39:41

here and across Europe,

but they say a full time franchise

0:39:410:39:44

based in the UK is looking

increasingly unlikey.

0:39:440:39:46

This match saw a meeting of two

of the Eastern Conferences most

0:39:460:39:49

exciting teams, with

the Boston Celtics eventually

0:39:490:39:51

beating the Philadelphia 76-ers

by 114 points to 103.

0:39:510:39:54

Staying with American

sports in the capital,

0:39:540:39:55

and Tottenham's hopes

of starting the new season

0:39:550:39:58

in their new White Hart Lane

stadium have been boosted,

0:39:580:40:00

after it was announced Spurs'

refurbished ground will host

0:40:000:40:03

the first match of the NFL

London Series in 2018.

0:40:030:40:06

Seattle Seahawks will play

the Oakland Raiders

0:40:060:40:07

at White Hart Lane in October,

and the new stadium has special

0:40:070:40:11

features so both football

and American football

0:40:110:40:13

will have their own

playing surface,

0:40:130:40:14

apparently.

0:40:140:40:19

it has been my dream for a number of

years to crate something special not

0:40:190:40:23

just for our fans but for an owl fan

-- and it bans local area and I

0:40:230:40:27

believe NFL and Premier League

soccer together, it will be

0:40:270:40:31

something unique in the world.

We

have got to pictures. The NFL

0:40:310:40:34

picture is the lower pitch. The

Premier League One will go under the

0:40:340:40:39

South stand. It will enable the NFL

to have as many games as they want

0:40:390:40:44

during that period.

0:40:440:40:48

England's Trina Gulliver,

still looks like the woman to beat

0:40:480:40:50

at darts,' B.D.O World Championship.

0:40:500:40:52

She's already won this tournament

ten times previously,

0:40:520:40:54

now she's into this year's

semi-finals at Lakeside.

0:40:540:40:56

She beat the Netherland's Aileen de

Graaf, by two sets to nil.

0:40:560:41:01

British bobsleigher Bruce Tasker,

has been ruled out of competing,

0:41:010:41:03

at next month's Winter Olympics,

after suffering a minor

0:41:030:41:06

stroke last week.

0:41:060:41:07

Tasker was due to

compete in his second

0:41:070:41:09

Winter Games in Pyeongchang.

0:41:090:41:10

He was taken to hospital

on the 4th of January,

0:41:100:41:13

after experiencing dizziness

and nausea, but he is expected

0:41:130:41:15

to make a full recovery,

and resume his bobsleigh career

0:41:150:41:18

by next season.

0:41:180:41:26

And how about this for a good way

to start off the golfing year

0:41:290:41:33

for Wales' Jamie Donaldson.

0:41:330:41:34

This was his tee shot,

at the par three 14th hole

0:41:340:41:37

at the South Africa Open in Edevale.

0:41:370:41:39

And it went in for a hole in one.

0:41:390:41:41

Donaldson finished his round at two

under par, five shots off

0:41:410:41:44

the leader.

0:41:440:41:45

I know what it's like to have that

feeling when you see it go all the

0:41:450:41:50

way in.

You have had a hole in one?

At crazy golf.

It all counts. In

0:41:500:41:56

training for the World

Championships.

I'm not going to beat

0:41:560:42:00

that.

0:42:000:42:03

Dozens of senior Accident

and Emergency doctors in England

0:42:030:42:05

and Wales have written a letter

to the Prime Minister warning that

0:42:050:42:08

patients are dying in hospital

corridors and conditions

0:42:080:42:11

are at times 'intolerable'.

0:42:110:42:18

(PRES) It follows a number

of reports of patients waiting hours

0:42:250:42:28

for beds or being left on trollies.

0:42:280:42:30

Health bosses say 'very high' rates

of flu is placing pressure

0:42:300:42:33

on the NHS.

0:42:330:42:33

Stephen Lord is one of the medics

who signed the letter to Theresa

0:42:330:42:37

May.

0:42:370:42:37

He joins us now.

0:42:370:42:38

This is unprecedented. We haven't

seen a group, people like you get

0:42:380:42:42

together and sign this matter. What

is taking you to this point? We

0:42:420:42:48

expect every winter to be tough on

patience. But this winter has proved

0:42:480:42:53

tougher than any of the previous

ones we have worked. We put patient

0:42:530:42:58

care at the centre of our focus.

This winter, we have seen on

0:42:580:43:03

unprecedented levels, but care being

compromised, delays in treatment,

0:43:030:43:05

not being able to see patients in a

timely manner. We decided it was

0:43:050:43:12

time to speak up and raise our

concerns. You are a clinical

0:43:120:43:19

director who oversees a A&E

department. Are you worried about

0:43:190:43:24

people dying in your department when

they potentially shouldn't be?

I

0:43:240:43:31

worry about patients coming to harm.

I have long ambulance queues at

0:43:310:43:38

times. Waiting to get into a cubicle

to be seen by my staff. All the time

0:43:380:43:47

that they are delayed, they are not

getting the care that they need.

You

0:43:470:43:51

speak in very measured terms. You

have signed a public letter asking

0:43:510:43:57

for action from the government, from

the Prime Minister.

Have you had a

0:43:570:44:02

response? Not yet other than the

bits that were in the media

0:44:020:44:07

yesterday. The letter was signed on

Wednesday and went out yesterday,

0:44:070:44:13

which was leaked by the Health

Service Journal.

The stock response

0:44:130:44:19

right now it is what the government

line is. Extra resources have been

0:44:190:44:24

put in place. There is a plan to

deal with what we are dealing with

0:44:240:44:29

now. That is the stock response to

what your saying.

Every winter, we

0:44:290:44:36

have a plan going into winter. Every

plan needs resources in both real

0:44:360:44:42

estate, people but also the finances

to back it. We have seen this

0:44:420:44:47

winter, our hospital sitting at

around 95% occupancy. Efficiency

0:44:470:44:54

relies on about 85% occupancy. It

means we can't get patients through

0:44:540:45:00

the hospital quicken up. There is

not enough social care are out there

0:45:000:45:05

to look after an elderly population.

We often hear about the precipice,

0:45:050:45:10

the edge of something. Can you give

us a picture of what the next stage

0:45:100:45:16

is that it carries on like this?

What is the next stage? What does

0:45:160:45:24

that look like? The next stage will

be large numbers of patients coming

0:45:240:45:30

to a significant harm.

Increasing

mortality across hospitals because

0:45:300:45:33

patients are not getting the

treatment they require in the time

0:45:330:45:36

they require.

0:45:360:45:41

Give me an idea of numbers.

This

year in my department we have seen a

0:45:410:45:47

2% increase in attendances but we

have admitted another five or 6% of

0:45:470:45:52

patients to the hospital. So from my

department that is about another

0:45:520:45:55

five patients per day. On our worst

day we admitted another 20 patients

0:45:550:45:59

over where we would expect to admit

on a normal day. And that is on top

0:45:590:46:05

of all the normal work. And these

patients at times are waiting more

0:46:050:46:08

than 12 hours in my department. You

know, that is three times the length

0:46:080:46:13

of time that people should be

waiting. We should see, and we

0:46:130:46:18

should discharge and had met people

in four hours. But people are

0:46:180:46:24

waiting 20 hours.

What would you say

to someone at this moment in time

0:46:240:46:28

needs to take someone to A&E or send

someone to A&E. People hearing this

0:46:280:46:35

will think I don't want to send a

relative if there is a risk of

0:46:350:46:39

coming to harm.

We always see people

in a priority order. Everyone is

0:46:390:46:43

triage at the front door, so we will

see them at the order of their

0:46:430:46:50

clinical need. We will see everyone

and give them the treatments they

0:46:500:46:53

require, but unless we can sort the

system out, we will make no

0:46:530:46:59

guarantees. In -- even senior

doctors can't make that guarantee.

0:46:590:47:09

And we will be keeping an eye on

that story this morning. We are also

0:47:090:47:15

looking at the weather picture as

well.

0:47:150:47:17

Here is Matt with a look

at this morning's weather.

0:47:170:47:20

Very good morning to you, and no big

changes on the weather front at the

0:47:200:47:25

moment. There will

0:47:250:47:27

changes on the weather front at the

moment. There will be next week, as

0:47:270:47:28

I will show you. Out there today we

have the familiar colour of grey

0:47:280:47:32

overhead for the vast majority. Some

will brighten up a early-morning

0:47:320:47:36

commuters on the roads across

western parts of the UK will have

0:47:360:47:39

some fog around, and these areas are

most likely to see some frost.

0:47:390:47:43

Temperatures dropping down to -3, -4

in northern Scotland, just below

0:47:430:47:47

freezing in the south-west. Either

side of it you are frost free but

0:47:470:47:51

the figures cloud is producing rain

and drizzle around the eastern

0:47:510:47:54

areas, from London all the way

towards the Wash at the moment. The

0:47:540:47:59

odd heavy burst here and they will

come and go all day long across some

0:47:590:48:03

parts of eastern England. For most

it is a dry day and some of the mist

0:48:030:48:07

and fog will clear. Some of you will

see some sunshine. The best chance

0:48:070:48:11

of sunshine in western Wales, parts

of north-west England and the North

0:48:110:48:14

of Scotland and while temperatures

across the border fairly similar,

0:48:140:48:19

that bit sunshine will make him feel

much better. Into the night, the

0:48:190:48:22

wind coming from the south-east. No

push from the Atlantic at the

0:48:220:48:26

moment, this weather front trying to

push its way in. It will bring rain

0:48:260:48:30

by the end of the night in Northern

Ireland and Pembrokeshire and

0:48:300:48:33

Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

Most generally dry. The odd spot of

0:48:330:48:36

light rain and drizzle in the breeze

as we have seen the past few nights

0:48:360:48:41

and lots of cloud into Saturday

morning. So another grey start for

0:48:410:48:44

the start of the weekend. Wet in

Northern Ireland, turning wet in

0:48:440:48:47

western Scotland for a good part of

western Wales, Cornwall and parts of

0:48:470:48:51

Devon. More so across Scotland,

parts of eastern Wales will stay

0:48:510:48:55

dry. The better chance of a few

cloud breaks to the south and east

0:48:550:48:59

tomorrow compared with recent days,

and temperatures similar to today.

0:48:590:49:03

Through Saturday night and into

Sunday, that weather front coming

0:49:030:49:07

off the Atlantic sits in place

across parts of Scotland, Wales,

0:49:070:49:11

towards the south-west. Here we will

see the greatest conditions --

0:49:110:49:14

greatest conditions to begin with. A

few breaks in the South and East

0:49:140:49:19

with early-morning frost and fog.

Temperatures struggling after the

0:49:190:49:21

chilly start by the end of the day

western Scotland and Northern

0:49:210:49:25

Ireland will have heavy rain and

gusty winds spreading its weight in.

0:49:250:49:28

Through Sunday night into Monday,

here comes the change. Gales and

0:49:280:49:33

severe gale force winds. Clear in

the south-east and by the time we

0:49:330:49:36

get to the end of Monday, just

follow the isobars back all the wage

0:49:360:49:40

agreement from North Canada, much

colder air will follow in its wake.

0:49:400:49:44

That will sweep away the grade, the

murkiness, the mist that we have

0:49:440:49:48

seen over this week on introducing

crisper conditions at times, but it

0:49:480:49:52

will feel colder. Pretty windy as

well, widespread gales expected and

0:49:520:49:56

lots of showers around. Heavy with

hail and thunder and increasingly

0:49:560:50:01

sleet and snow across northern and

western areas as well. A big change

0:50:010:50:05

from what we have just now.

I think

you should have stopped that windy.

0:50:050:50:09

Thank you very much.

0:50:090:50:13

This is a new one on me, Ben, the

idea of open banking.

It is a bit

0:50:130:50:21

complicated and it will take awhile

to its presence felt but it is a

0:50:210:50:25

really significant change to the way

we do our banking. The way that we

0:50:250:50:31

bank, borrow and save is about to

change forever. It is called open

0:50:310:50:35

banking and it is the biggest

shakeup in a generation. So why is

0:50:350:50:38

it happening and what does it mean

for us? For years, our High Street

0:50:380:50:43

banks have dominated the market for

savings and current accounts. Most

0:50:430:50:47

of us stay with the same bank for

decades and so the regulator wants

0:50:470:50:51

to make it easier to shop around,

creating more competition. We could

0:50:510:50:55

save nearly £100 a year just by

switching banks and even more if you

0:50:550:51:01

regularly use alone, an overdraft or

a mortgage. At the moment there are

0:51:010:51:06

just too many forms to fill in each

time we want to sign up for

0:51:060:51:10

something new. And so new EU rules

mean big banks will be forced to

0:51:100:51:14

share our information if we ask them

to, so we can signup to new deals,

0:51:140:51:18

switch or get better interest rates,

all at the click of a button.

Number

0:51:180:51:24

one, personal budgeting, the ability

to see where my money comes from

0:51:240:51:27

under categories I am spending it

on. I'm getting better visibility

0:51:270:51:30

with that. The second one is the

ability to bring all my accounts

0:51:300:51:34

into one place, so I might look on a

smartphone or banking out and see

0:51:340:51:38

not just the current account from

the tank, but other products and

0:51:380:51:42

services that I might have, alone

overdraft, for example. And

0:51:420:51:44

services that I might have, alone

overdraft, for example. And the

0:51:440:51:45

third one would be around financial

management, and that would be things

0:51:450:51:49

like overdraft alerts, for example,

so the ability to find better

0:51:490:51:52

products which are more suited to me

and the ability to switch to those

0:51:520:51:56

products as well.

But just how safe

is it? When you sign up a new

0:51:560:52:00

product you will be asked if you

want to share your financial data

0:52:000:52:04

and who you want to share it with.

If you don't agree, it won't be

0:52:040:52:08

shared. But not everyone is made

confident by those changes. A recent

0:52:080:52:12

survey found the majority of

consumers are still sceptical about

0:52:120:52:15

sharing their financial data. One of

the biggest concerns is security.

0:52:150:52:20

People will be sharing sensitive

financial data. Third parties,

0:52:200:52:23

perhaps brands you have never heard

of, will be able to take a real peek

0:52:230:52:28

into your current account and look

at where you spend, your habits and

0:52:280:52:32

your vices, and do you feel

comfortable sharing that? Of course

0:52:320:52:35

there is the risk that that data

could go astray or it could be

0:52:350:52:38

intercepted by fraudsters, and they

would really hold the keys to your

0:52:380:52:42

financial life.

But remember, you

have to give your permission before

0:52:420:52:46

anyone can see that data. In theory

it should make it easier to shop

0:52:460:52:50

around. Remember, it all officially

begins tomorrow. Just a small number

0:52:500:52:56

of banks say they are ready for

these changes, others have been

0:52:560:52:59

given more time to comply. Credit

card companies, mortgage firms and

0:52:590:53:04

insurers will sign up as well. You

might not notice any changes just

0:53:040:53:08

yet but the changes are coming, and

that revolution starts tomorrow.

0:53:080:53:13

Thank you very much.

0:53:130:53:15

If you visit Thirlmere,

in the Lake District,

0:53:150:53:18

the only sounds you will hear

are the chirping of birds

0:53:180:53:21

and the trickle of a nearby stream.

0:53:210:53:22

That could soon change, though.

0:53:220:53:24

A consultation on the construction

of a new zip wire across

0:53:240:53:27

the reservoir ends today.

0:53:270:53:28

Developers say it will bring

new tourists to the area.

0:53:280:53:31

But the proposal hasn't gone down

well with conservationists,

0:53:310:53:33

as Breakfast Graham

Satchell reports.

0:53:330:53:36

Hidden in the trees next to Lake

Windermere, is acquire. -- zip wire.

0:53:360:53:46

Kia and will are about to go down

for the first time.

IBook this was

0:53:480:53:53

his birthday.

Would you normally

come to the Lakes anywhere?

We

0:53:530:53:56

haven't been before, no.

Go!

Bringing new people to the Lakes is

0:53:560:54:03

just one reason. Treetop trek want

to build one more zip wire half an

0:54:030:54:07

hour at the road at Thirlmere. So

you can't really do this story

0:54:070:54:10

without actually having a go. So

here we go. One, two at three! So

0:54:100:54:16

the people behind this new zip wire

say it will create 15 new jobs, and

0:54:160:54:22

should create £600,000 for the

economy, and there should be 50,000

0:54:220:54:26

people a year using it.

It is about

getting outdoors, doing something

0:54:260:54:31

you wouldn't normally do,

challenging yourself. And I think

0:54:310:54:36

the more people we can encourage to

get outdoors and to get up into the

0:54:360:54:40

cells and to get around the lakes,

the better.

The plans would see four

0:54:400:54:44

wires going across the water one way

at Thirlmere, a quick track, and

0:54:440:54:49

then four wires going back to the

other side.

0:54:490:54:57

other side. And this is Thirlmere.

Breathtaking, Majestic, Sareen, and

0:54:570:55:02

surprising. It is surprising

because, actually, most of what you

0:55:020:55:09

can see here is man-made. The trees,

for example, were planted in the

0:55:090:55:15

early 1900s, and the water is not a

lake on it is a reservoir, built in

0:55:150:55:20

the 1890s to supply water to

Manchester, which it still does

0:55:200:55:23

today. There was a huge row when

this reservoir was built between

0:55:230:55:28

industrialists and city folk to the

south and a group of locals,

0:55:280:55:31

including the poet and philosopher

John Ruskin, who many consider to be

0:55:310:55:36

the founding father of modern

conservation is. Rusk and lost the

0:55:360:55:43

first battle of Thirlmere, but the

group he was part of, now called the

0:55:430:55:47

friends of the Lakes district, is

determined not to lose this one.

I

0:55:470:55:50

love getting out, getting away from

it all. And I think having all these

0:55:500:55:54

visitors here will spoil that, will

spoil the landscape.

Zip wires have

0:55:540:56:02

a place, but not in urban landscape,

and certainly not across an expanse

0:56:020:56:06

of open water.

I have been on one,

you do scream, you can't help it. It

0:56:060:56:10

would just be awful to have that

here, when you come here for

0:56:100:56:14

peaceful walks in nature.

What do

you think John Ruskin would have

0:56:140:56:21

made of your zip wires proposal?

I

have absolutely no idea whatsoever.

0:56:210:56:28

But we shouldn't be afraid of words

like thrill and fun. They should go

0:56:280:56:33

hand-in-hand with words like his

ability.

These pictures show what it

0:56:330:56:36

might be like to go the proposed new

zip wire. There is a big question

0:56:360:56:41

here. Should the late district be

opened up to more people who

0:56:410:56:45

wouldn't normally come, or should be

left in peace, it is?

0:56:450:56:53

That makes me want to go to the Lake

District this weekend.

And you can

0:56:530:56:58

understand why sentiments run high,

because it looks so stunning.

0:56:581:00:20

the breeze will pick up a touch, so

mist and fog not too much an issue

1:00:201:00:24

in the tomorrow morning. A few spots

of rain. A low cloud around again.

1:00:241:00:28

Those four or five Celsius. Now,

temperatures will go down a touch

1:00:281:00:31

over the course of the weekend. A

lot of cloud around. Mostly dry,

1:00:311:00:34

some brighter spells that time.

Turning windy by the end of Sunday.

1:00:341:00:38

And then it is a wet start to the

new working week.

1:00:381:00:42

And then it is a wet start to the

Donald Trump abandons

his plans to visit

1:00:461:00:47

The US President had been due

to open the new American embassy

1:00:471:00:50

in London, with protests

planned by groups opposed

1:00:501:00:53

to his administration.

1:00:531:00:53

In the past hour, he's tweeted

that he has no intention of cutting

1:00:531:00:57

the ribbon because the building

represents a bad deal

1:00:571:00:59

for the US.

Tributes are paid to an 18-year-old

He is expected to make a full

1:01:531:01:59

And as the Queen marks 65 years

since her Coronation,

1:01:591:02:02

for the first time Her Majesty lifts

the lid on what life

1:02:021:02:05

is like when you have

to wear a crown.

1:02:051:02:07

You can't look down to read

the speech, you have to take

1:02:071:02:11

the speech up because

if you do, your neck

1:02:111:02:13

could break.

Details on that in your weekend

forecast a news on even cold

1:02:151:02:18

weather on the way next week.

1:02:181:02:20

That is next.

1:02:201:02:27

Good morning.

1:02:281:02:29

First, our main story.

1:02:291:02:32

Donald Trump has

confirmed he won't visit

1:02:321:02:33

Britain next month.

1:02:331:02:34

The US President tweeted that he had

cancelled the planned

1:02:341:02:37

visit as he didn't want open

the new American embassy

1:02:371:02:44

commissioned by his

predecessor, Barack Obama.

1:02:441:02:45

Dan Johnson has got the latest.

1:02:451:02:47

After nearly 60 years flying

above London's Grosvenor Square,

1:02:471:02:49

the Stars and Stripes

were lowered this week,

1:02:491:02:52

ready for the opening

of the new US embassy.

1:02:521:02:56

It is a $1 billion building

on the Southbank, and Donald Trump

1:02:561:02:59

was due to officially

open it next month.

1:02:591:03:06

Now, we know he won't.

1:03:061:03:08

Some sources say the President

did not want to be associated

1:03:081:03:09

Donald Trump has got to go!

1:03:341:03:40

But did the prospect of protests

like this also put off?

1:03:401:03:43

This was the response to his ban

on travellers from certain

1:03:431:03:46

Muslim countries.

1:03:461:03:47

A petition drew 1.8 million

signatures with calls to ban him.

1:03:471:03:50

It shouldn't be a state visit

because it would be embarrassing

1:03:501:03:53

to the Queen and the rest of the UK.

1:03:531:03:55

Theresa May was the first

world leader to reach out

1:03:551:03:58

to the new President and a return

trip, a state visit,

1:03:581:04:01

was promised soon.

1:04:011:04:02

But then the President strained

the special relationship by sharing

1:04:021:04:04

online far-right videos

from the group called Britain First.

1:04:041:04:07

When Theresa May condemned,

he then retorted.

1:04:071:04:14

When Theresa May condemned,

he even retorted.

1:04:141:04:17

But just last weekend, she confirmed

the invite still stands.

1:04:171:04:19

He is taking decisions in the best

interests of the United States.

1:04:191:04:23

And he is coming to this country?

1:04:231:04:25

He will be coming to the country.

1:04:251:04:26

The Foreign Secretary denied

the Queen would be embarrassed.

1:04:261:04:29

I think Her Majesty the Queen

is capable of taking this

1:04:291:04:32

American President or any American

president in her stride,

1:04:321:04:34

as she has done over

six remarkable decades.

1:04:341:04:37

Let's be clear.

1:04:371:04:40

Opening this place was never

the same as a state visit.

1:04:401:04:43

It would have been a shorter,

less formal trip.

1:04:431:04:45

Meeting the Queen is still on,

expected this year, but no date

1:04:451:04:49

has been set.

1:04:491:04:51

The President is denying this

decision is down to politics

1:04:511:04:55

but after he offended more countries

with a foulmouthed remark last

1:04:551:04:57

night, the list of places he is

welcome certainly isn't growing.

1:04:571:05:05

We can talk now to our

North America Corrspondent,

1:05:101:05:14

Eleanor Garnier who is in our

Los Angeles studio.

1:05:141:05:20

How special is this relationship?

Some may say it is a snub. It is not

1:05:201:05:25

a good look to have

1:05:251:05:35

a good look to have another bit of

having said that, is he doing it

1:05:351:05:41

deliberately to annoy the British

government? I don't think so. It is

1:05:411:05:46

a backdrop of a strained

relationship it has been strained at

1:05:461:05:50

times. It was only last week we

heard the Prime Minister was saying

1:05:501:05:54

that the President would be visiting

the UK. The state visit, that's with

1:05:541:05:59

all the pomp and ceremony where

Donald Trump would be seeing the

1:05:591:06:04

Queen, that has been on the

backburner but there is a more

1:06:041:06:08

straightforward visit, a working

visit, and it was due to take place

1:06:081:06:12

next month. We know Donald Trump's

public official reason becoming is

1:06:121:06:17

because he is unhappy with the

building and its relocation, all the

1:06:171:06:21

BBC understands although Donald

Trump is blaming the Obama

1:06:211:06:25

administration, the decision was

taken before President Obama came

1:06:251:06:30

into office. There are other reasons

being suggested for coming? The

1:06:301:06:37

threat of anti-Trump demonstrations.

The Mayor of London has made it

1:06:371:06:43

clear that he doesn't think he is

welcome in this country. Another

1:06:431:06:47

difficulty is that when Theresa May

made that invitation to Donald Trump

1:06:471:06:54

to come to the UK that state visit,

it was very early on. It became a

1:06:541:07:00

very controversial invitation.

Formerly made by the Queen. There's

1:07:001:07:05

a lot of pressure on this visit. It

is ratcheted up the diplomatic

1:07:051:07:09

pressure. I think that is why it

might feel a bit uncomfortable for

1:07:091:07:14

those at Number 10.

1:07:141:07:18

An 18-year-old from the Scottish

highlands has died after contracting

1:07:181:07:21

the flu virus.

1:07:211:07:22

Bethany Walker was

airlifted to hospital

1:07:221:07:26

in Inverness from her home

in Wester Ross, but her illness had

1:07:261:07:31

developed into pneumonia and staff

were unable to save her.

1:07:311:07:35

In England, there has been a sharp

rise in the number of flu cases seen

1:07:351:07:42

Away this winter has proved very

tough. We as doctors put patient

1:07:451:07:50

care is our number one focus. We

seek optimisers in treatment,

1:07:501:07:59

delays, not seeing patients in a

timely manner. Through that, we

1:07:591:08:03

decided it's time to speak up and

raise our concerns.

1:08:031:08:09

The Queen has been talking

about some of the challenges

1:08:091:08:11

she faced at her Coronation,

including the weight

1:08:111:08:14

of the Imperial State Crown.

1:08:141:08:15

Her Majesty doesn't

normally do interviews,

1:08:151:08:17

but she spoke to the royal

commentator Alastair Bruce as part

1:08:171:08:20

of an upcoming BBC programme marking

the 65th anniversary

1:08:201:08:22

of the ceremony.

1:08:221:08:23

Our Royal Correspondent

Nicholas Witchell reports.

1:08:231:08:24

She famously doesn't do interviews.

1:08:241:08:26

This is probably as

close as she will get.

1:08:261:08:28

A conversation with questions

about the Coronation,

1:08:281:08:31

the Crown Jewels and

the Imperial State

1:08:311:08:33

Crown warned by her and her

father, King George VI.

1:08:331:08:36

Fortunately my father

and I have about the same

1:08:361:08:39

sort of shaped head.

1:08:391:08:41

Once you put it on, it stays.

1:08:411:08:44

It just remains itself.

1:08:441:08:46

You have to keep your

head very still.

1:08:461:08:48

Yes, and you can't look

down to read the speech,

1:08:481:08:51

you have to take the speech

up because if you did,

1:08:511:08:54

your neck would break,

it would fall off.

1:08:541:08:57

So there are some disadvantages

to crowns but otherwise,

1:08:571:09:01

they're quite important things.

1:09:011:09:05

She rode her coronation

in the gold state coach.

1:09:051:09:09

It weighs four tonnes.

1:09:091:09:11

It's not built for comfort.

1:09:111:09:12

Horrible.

1:09:121:09:14

It's not meant for

travelling in at all.

1:09:141:09:19

It's only sprung on leather.

1:09:191:09:20

So it rocks around a lot?

1:09:201:09:22

Not very comfortable.

1:09:221:09:22

Were you in it for a long time?

1:09:221:09:25

I rode around London.

1:09:251:09:26

Really?

1:09:261:09:29

We must have gone

four or five miles.

1:09:291:09:31

You can only go at walking pace.

1:09:311:09:33

The horses couldn't

possibly go any faster.

1:09:331:09:37

It's so heavy.

1:09:371:09:41

65 years after the event,

a monarch talking about her

1:09:411:09:44

coronation.

1:09:441:09:44

The Crown, the real one.

1:09:441:09:51

Nicholas Witchell, BBC News.

1:09:511:09:53

You can watch the Coronation

on BBC One at eight

1:09:531:09:56

o'clock this evening.

1:09:561:10:04

You are right up-to-date. Matters

going to bring the weather.

1:10:161:10:29

Flamboyant, confident and a young

man who loved to be the centre

1:10:321:10:35

of attention, Martyn Hett was among

the 22 people killed

1:10:351:10:38

in the attack last May.

1:10:381:10:39

His family found themselves

in the media spotlight,

1:10:391:10:42

almost from the very moment

they heard about the explosion.

1:10:421:10:44

Judith Moritz has this report.

1:10:441:10:47

The Manchester Arena explosion

shattered countless lives. 22 were

1:10:471:10:51

lost, many more were changed

forever. He made international

1:10:511:10:56

headlines and that meant there was

huge media interest in the stories

1:10:561:11:00

of those most closely affected. They

included the family of Martyn Hett,

1:11:001:11:06

one of those killed in the blast. He

had a large social media following

1:11:061:11:11

and had previously been on TV, and

possibly as a result, his family

1:11:111:11:17

found themselves in the spotlight

almost from the very moment they

1:11:171:11:20

heard about their explosion and

before they knew Martyn had died.

It

1:11:201:11:24

seems a bit dissed tasteful, really.

How can anybody be so cool and say

1:11:241:11:31

sorry for your loss? We didn't find

out officially this evening until he

1:11:311:11:37

was dead.

Now an independent panel

will consider the way the media

1:11:371:11:41

covered the stories of the breeds

and injured. The review panel will

1:11:411:11:47

recommend that public organisations

adopt a charter which uses lessons

1:11:471:11:51

learned from the Hillsborough

disaster. It states that the

1:11:511:11:54

bereaved and vulnerable should be

treated with respect and put first

1:11:541:11:58

by those responding to such public

tragedies.

1:11:581:12:09

Joining us as Lord Kerslake, the

chair of the review. And Stuart

1:12:091:12:14

Murray, Martyn Hett's father. How do

you feel now? No one can put a time

1:12:141:12:22

on how long to grieve and how much

you miss. You will always miss

1:12:221:12:27

Martyn. How do you think you are

treated or approached by the media?

1:12:271:12:34

I think, media point of view, if you

imagine that one minute, you are at

1:12:341:12:39

home watching it on the TV and you

go to the arena to get some news and

1:12:391:12:48

if you imagine how it would feel,

you leave your children at home.

1:12:481:12:52

Your teenagers while you are trying

to find out news of what happens,

1:12:521:12:56

and while you are there, you don't

even know what has happened. There

1:12:561:13:00

are people knocking on the door at

home to your children. Saving our

1:13:001:13:07

condolences about your brother,

would you like to talk about it?

1:13:071:13:11

That is nine and ten o'clock in the

morning. We won't even told until

1:13:111:13:16

ten o'clock at night. But was

confirmed. How would you feel is

1:13:161:13:22

apparent that was happening to your

children?

How did you know that had

1:13:221:13:26

happened? The children account of

the stories. They told you about

1:13:261:13:31

that.

It was our children and those

where we lived, the media found the

1:13:311:13:41

address of our children who don't

live at home and some of Martyn's

1:13:411:13:44

friends, his flatmates.

1:13:441:13:50

friends, his flatmates. This is

before we even had news and

1:13:501:13:52

confirmation of what had happened.

Those people it happened to, those

1:13:521:13:57

enquiries by the media? What was the

impact of that?

1:13:571:14:07

impact of that?

I suppose that makes

you, the people involved angry and

1:14:071:14:13

cautious how they would deal with

the media thereafter. If you're

1:14:131:14:17

trying to make an impression that is

not the way to make an impression if

1:14:171:14:21

you want to try were to be involved

with them. It's not a good way to

1:14:211:14:26

start.

We will talk about that

because we've spoken to you before.

1:14:261:14:32

Lord Kerslake, you have spoken to

members of the family, family

1:14:321:14:38

members, survivors, people who are

at the media. What has been your

1:14:381:14:42

impression about how the media has

behaved? How has that been

1:14:421:14:47

inappropriate in terms of media

guidelines?

We really wanted to tell

1:14:471:14:54

the story in terms of the bereaved

and injured. A lot of the media

1:14:541:14:59

handed -- handled things

respectfully but there were

1:14:591:15:02

occasions where they didn't. What

you find here is that with social

1:15:021:15:07

media, the identity of those were

missing becomes known quite quickly.

1:15:071:15:11

Then it is, how does the media

respond to that situation? We have

1:15:111:15:16

heard, I think, of an example where

they did badly. We wanted to look at

1:15:161:15:24

and go through the detail of this,

what can we learn from this? Have

1:15:241:15:28

the lessons of previous events like

this been learned? Its early stages.

1:15:281:15:36

Have you been able to draw any

conclusions about that? There are

1:15:361:15:40

certain realities here which you

have come to deal with. Social media

1:15:401:15:46

exists. Social media is going to

appear. That will not change. What

1:15:461:15:53

can be done?

We want to do a bit

more work, you are quite right,

1:15:531:16:04

before we reach a conclusion. But

most people would think it would be

1:16:041:16:08

quite wrong to go to the door of

somebody's house where the family

1:16:081:16:12

don't yet know the outcome

themselves, as we have heard from

1:16:121:16:16

Stuart, and express condolences for

their loss. We must find a way in

1:16:161:16:20

which that doesn't happen.

There is

a balance, isn't there, Stuart, in

1:16:201:16:25

terms of what people want to know.

You have been on the sofa talking

1:16:251:16:30

about Martin, remembering him, and

people are interested. People want

1:16:301:16:33

to know about the people who are

victims of this atrocity. There is a

1:16:331:16:37

way that the media needs to get that

across to people, when we see

1:16:371:16:41

something like what happened at the

Manchester Arena. Where do you think

1:16:411:16:46

the lines have been blurred, or

perhaps stepped over

1:16:461:16:48

inappropriately?

I think as one of

the victims' families, I think our

1:16:481:16:55

role is to describe what has

happened, and then let all the

1:16:551:17:00

individual organisations decide

whether what they did was right. I

1:17:001:17:06

don't want to be seen to be saying

this is what you must do. There are

1:17:061:17:10

lots of different things happen, and

you have to look at what happens to

1:17:101:17:14

everyone. We feed it back and then

we want all the different

1:17:141:17:17

organisations who have been involved

in looking after us afterwards to

1:17:171:17:21

say what they did, was it right,

could they have improved it?

You

1:17:211:17:29

described the immediate aftermath,

and soul of those hours immediately

1:17:291:17:33

afterwards, when the press were

doing those things. In the longer

1:17:331:17:36

term, do you feel that your family

has been respected more, or is it an

1:17:361:17:41

ongoing issue of respecting your

privacy and giving the family time?

1:17:411:17:47

I think overall I think we have been

looked after fantastically by

1:17:471:17:51

everybody involved. But there is

always going to be lessons to be

1:17:511:17:57

learned. So this isn't about trying

to find blame, but when a big

1:17:571:18:03

disaster happens, you need to look

at it and say is there anything we

1:18:031:18:07

could do even better on?

What do you

think could change, in the outcome

1:18:071:18:12

of this, what could significantly

change, do you think?

I think it is

1:18:121:18:16

all about the way in which people

behave, the respect with which they

1:18:161:18:20

treat those caught up in these

terrible events. And I think we

1:18:201:18:24

learned a lot, actually, in very

different circumstances, the report

1:18:241:18:27

that Bishop Jones did in the

Hillsborough enquiry, and he set out

1:18:271:18:33

some guiding principles for public

agencies in terms of how they should

1:18:331:18:38

approach to read families. And those

applied not just the public

1:18:381:18:41

agencies, but to the media as well.

Thank you very much for your time,

1:18:411:18:46

and thank you for spending time with

us this morning.

1:18:461:18:49

Here is Matt with a look

at this morning's weather.

1:18:491:18:53

And there looks to be some

1:18:531:18:55

And there looks to be some horrible

weather on the way.

It depends how

1:18:551:18:58

you look at it, really. Things will

be changing. For some a welcome

1:18:581:19:03

change from the grey we have seen

through the bulk of the week.

1:19:031:19:07

Certainly cloudy at the moment.

O'Grady, misty start to your Friday

1:19:071:19:11

morning. Some dense fog patches,

especially in the west. The reason

1:19:111:19:15

our weather hasn't been changing

much of late is down to the position

1:19:151:19:19

of the jet stream. It has been

rushing out of USA and making this

1:19:191:19:23

week undulating dip across the

Atlantic, and then not really

1:19:231:19:26

reaching us. So we have no real push

to bring weather systems our way and

1:19:261:19:31

shake up our weather of it. But that

will change into next week. As we

1:19:311:19:35

run into quieter weather, it the

wind will fall light. The

1:19:351:19:38

temperatures drop wet skies have

been clear, that is western areas

1:19:381:19:43

and northern Scotland, below

freezing over the last hour or two.

1:19:431:19:47

Either side of it a frosty start

today but essentially another grey

1:19:471:19:51

one. Misty and foggy over the hills.

Dense patches of fog and lower

1:19:511:19:55

levels of Wales and the south-west

in particular. And the cloud from

1:19:551:19:59

London and the south-east through

Yorkshire, always big enough to

1:19:591:20:02

produce some rain and drizzle. Most

of you will have a dry day and some

1:20:021:20:07

cloud appearing, the best favoured

for it will be parts of west and

1:20:071:20:10

north Wales, parts of western north

of England and parts of Scotland.

1:20:101:20:14

And where you see the sunshine,

similar across-the-board, it will

1:20:141:20:17

feel a little bit better. As we go

through the night, still some patchy

1:20:171:20:22

drizzle in the east but the main

focus is in the west, the Atlantic

1:20:221:20:27

jetstream trying to push this end.

Rain on and off by the end of the

1:20:271:20:32

night, maybe in the Pembrokeshire,

Cornwall and by the time we see

1:20:321:20:35

first light on Saturday into the far

west of Scotland. But that weather

1:20:351:20:38

front going to sit across these

areas all day long on Saturday. In

1:20:381:20:42

the west, some of the areas which

see the sunshine today, probably a

1:20:421:20:46

wet day tomorrow. Much of eastern

England and Wales will stay dry.

1:20:461:20:50

With a bit more breeze around

tomorrow, especially across the

1:20:501:20:53

South and east, a better chance of

some sunshine but it will feel

1:20:531:20:57

rather cool here is cooler air comes

back off the continent. Saturday

1:20:571:21:00

night the chance of some frost in

the south-east corner. That weather

1:21:001:21:03

front just sets across the west of

Scotland, the far west of England

1:21:031:21:07

and Wales to take us into Sunday.

Sunday grey and damp for many

1:21:071:21:12

western areas. Maybe some brightness

breaking through the further east

1:21:121:21:15

you are. Elsewhere the wind will

pick up, that is the sign of the

1:21:151:21:19

jetstream winning through. It brings

this weather front from Scotland and

1:21:191:21:23

Northern Ireland, and as the

jetstream starts to push that

1:21:231:21:25

through, wet and windy for all to

takers from Sunday night into

1:21:251:21:29

Monday, and then a big change on the

way. Following the isobars back all

1:21:291:21:33

the way in towards the likes

agreement, northern Canada, much

1:21:331:21:36

colder air for the start of next

week. That will take us through all

1:21:361:21:40

of next week. That does mean that we

sweep away the grey skies of this

1:21:401:21:44

week Tom but it also means it will

feel colder. It will be much, much

1:21:441:21:48

windier than we have had this week,

and there will be frequent showers

1:21:481:21:52

around. Some of the showers will

contain sleet and snow.

1:21:521:21:59

The future of building contractor

Carillion hangs in the balance,

1:21:591:22:02

amid fears it is close to collapse.

1:22:021:22:06

amid fears it is close to collapse.

1:22:061:22:11

Crisis talks this week, but there

are fears it is close to collapse.

1:22:111:22:15

Another crisis meeting will be held

today, after talks this week ended

1:22:151:22:18

without a deal on its

massive pension deficit.

1:22:181:22:20

Carillion is the UK's second-largest

construction company,

1:22:201:22:22

and employs 43,000 around the world.

1:22:221:22:24

It is involved in all sorts

of government building contracts,

1:22:241:22:26

including the HS2 rail line.

1:22:261:22:33

Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg says

the social media site will reduce

1:22:331:22:36

clutter from the site,

after criticism that there are too

1:22:361:22:39

any adverts and promoted

posts from businesses.

1:22:391:22:41

He says he wants to prioritise

what he calls meaningful social

1:22:411:22:44

interactions, and felt

a responsibility to make sure

1:22:441:22:47

Facebook was good for

people's wellbeing.

1:22:471:22:50

And a British satellite has been

blasted into orbit on an Indian

1:22:501:22:53

rocket to make full-colour,

high-definition videos of earth.

1:22:531:22:56

Rather than still images,

that are currently the norm,

1:22:561:22:58

the satellite will be able to record

moving objects like cars or ships,

1:22:581:23:02

and could be used for everything

from monitoring traffic to helping

1:23:021:23:04

rescuers after natural disasters.

1:23:041:23:12

Some great video of what it could

look like, but that satellite in

1:23:191:23:23

orbit now, so there are a lot of

them have to get up there before it

1:23:231:23:28

works. We will speak to the boss of

the British company behind that

1:23:281:23:32

satellite just after 8:30am this

morning on Breakfast.

That will be

1:23:321:23:37

interesting, looking forward to

that.

1:23:371:23:38

Four injured ex-veterans have been

unveiled as the drivers of a motor

1:23:381:23:41

racing team with a difference.

1:23:411:23:43

They will compete in the GT

Championship, in specially designed

1:23:431:23:46

cars which allow them to compete

against able-bodied drivers.

1:23:461:23:48

Let's talk our reporter,

JJ Chalmers.

1:23:481:23:50

He is a former soldier who served

with some of the team.

1:23:501:23:56

He will be doing the racing, and we

can see, I assume, the car itself.

1:23:561:24:03

Yes, this is the car itself, it is

an incredible beast. This is the

1:24:031:24:12

launch of Invictus Games racing. We

know it as a sporting competition

1:24:121:24:15

for wounded and sick servicemen and

women but it is ranching into the

1:24:151:24:20

world of motorsport. To give you

some context, this was my boss in

1:24:201:24:24

Afghanistan and got blown up a day

after me, believe it or not. How do

1:24:241:24:28

you go from being a Royal Marine to

a racing driver?

I spent two years

1:24:281:24:38

in physical rehabilitation and

during that time I got into

1:24:381:24:42

motorsport, and I was introduced to

my team, and incredibly, I have been

1:24:421:24:48

luckily chosen to now raise four

Invictus Games Racing.

And you have

1:24:481:24:53

journeyed a similar journey to

Steve. What has done for you

1:24:531:24:58

rehabilitation?

It has been amazing

for my it has given me the

1:24:581:25:02

opportunity to be part of a team

again, to re- hone my competitive

1:25:021:25:06

edge, and give me the opportunity to

race in an awesome car.

Speaking of

1:25:061:25:13

awesome cars, can you give us an

insight into what we have here?

So

1:25:131:25:18

it is based on a Jaguar F type, but

it has been seriously modified. It

1:25:181:25:22

is the first factory GT race car to

come out for 50 years from Jaguar.

1:25:221:25:31

It has some modifications, some of

which we can't talk about because we

1:25:311:25:34

don't want to give the game away,

but suffice to say it is an

1:25:341:25:38

incredible piece of kit and we can't

wait to get behind the wheel.

And if

1:25:381:25:42

the car wasn't enough to make you

believe they had taken this very

1:25:421:25:46

seriously, look at this racing truck

Tom Winnebago, as they call it in

1:25:461:25:50

America. It has spared no expense,

this type of Invictus Games

1:25:501:25:57

endeavour. And James, how do you go

from selling clothes to owning a

1:25:571:26:03

race team?

I want to do something

cool for charity for quite awhile,

1:26:031:26:08

and I was lucky enough to be in a

position to do so. I thought if we

1:26:081:26:13

could link up with the Invictus guys

and get Jaguar to build a car within

1:26:131:26:20

a year, it would challenge the guys

and give them a good project. So we

1:26:201:26:24

started this year ago. We have

another two years to run and we are

1:26:241:26:29

looking forward to the first season

of British GT Championships this

1:26:291:26:32

year. And I know from my days in

rehabilitation, you are not here to

1:26:321:26:37

make up numbers, are you?

Definitely

not. We have already spoken and we

1:26:371:26:43

are going to take it from the front.

We are not here to make up the

1:26:431:26:48

numbers, we are here to win this.

31

March is when the first race will

1:26:481:26:52

be, and you will want to keep your

eyes on this one.

And we are back

1:26:521:27:01

with you a little later on.

Quite

with you a little later on.

Quite

1:27:011:27:04

set

1:27:041:30:22

to the new working week.

1:30:221:30:25

I'm back with the latest

from the BBC London newsroom

1:30:251:30:28

in half an hour.

1:30:281:30:29

Plenty more on our website

at the usual address.

1:30:291:30:32

Bye for now.

1:30:321:30:34

Hello - this is Breakfast

with Charlie Stayt and Naga

1:30:341:30:37

Munchetty.

1:30:371:30:37

We'll bring you the latest news

and sport in just a moment.

1:30:371:30:42

Here's what's coming

up on Breakfast today.

1:30:421:30:50

In the last hour, Donald Trump has

confirmed he will not visit Britain

1:30:521:30:56

next month.

1:30:561:30:57

He tweeted that he had cancelled

a planned visit as he did not

1:30:571:31:01

want to open the new American

Embassy commissioned

1:31:011:31:03

by his predecessor, Barack Obama.

1:31:031:31:10

Essentially, he is saying he did not

want to be associated with a

1:31:101:31:14

decision that harks back to the

Obama administration. It was a bad

1:31:141:31:18

decision, as he said, a bad deal. It

is interesting because I have here a

1:31:181:31:23

press release from the US Embassy.

It stated the second of October,

1:31:231:31:29

2008, before President Obama was

elected.

1:31:291:31:35

Announcing this new embassy

on the Southbank in London.

1:31:351:31:38

It says the new embassy will serve

1:31:381:31:40

as a catalyst to the

regeneration of the area.

1:31:401:31:43

It was a decision made

before President Obama.

1:31:431:31:51

The conduct of the media is expected

to be examined by the independent

1:31:521:31:56

review into the response

to the Manchester Arena bombing.

1:31:561:31:58

22 people were killed when a bomb

was set off after a pop

1:31:581:32:02

concert at the venue in May.

1:32:021:32:03

Several of the bereaved families

have raised concerns

1:32:031:32:05

about the reporting of the attack.

1:32:051:32:07

The review will also look

at the role played by social media.

1:32:071:32:10

An 18-year-old from the Scottish

highlands has died after contracting

1:32:101:32:13

the flu virus.

1:32:131:32:14

Bethany Walker was

airlifted to hospital

1:32:141:32:15

in Inverness from her home

in Wester Ross, but her illness had

1:32:151:32:19

developed into pneumonia and staff

were unable to save her.

1:32:191:32:21

Elsewhere, in England,

there has been a sharp rise

1:32:211:32:24

in the number of flu

cases seen by GPs -

1:32:241:32:27

up 78 per cent from last week.

1:32:271:32:34

But this winter has proved tougher

than any of the previous

1:32:371:32:40

ones we have worked.

1:32:401:32:41

We put patient care

at the centre of our focus.

1:32:411:32:43

This winter, we have seen

on unprecedented levels,

1:32:431:32:46

that care being compromised,

delays in treatment,

1:32:461:32:48

not being able to see

patients in a timely manner.

1:32:481:32:51

We decided it was time

to speak up and raise our

1:32:511:32:54

concerns.

1:32:541:33:02

A large fire has broken out in

Nottinghamshire. Nottingham Fire and

1:33:041:33:09

Rescue is dealing with a large

incident. This is what we are

1:33:091:33:15

getting. We understand the station

has been evacuated.

1:33:151:33:23

East Midland Trains say all trains

through the station are cancelled

1:33:231:33:26

and they expect disruptions

for the rest of the morning.

1:33:261:33:29

Because of that fire, very much work

you checking your travel plans.

1:33:291:33:39

The Queen has been talking

about some of the challenges

1:33:391:33:42

she faced

1:33:421:33:43

at her Coronation 65 years ago.

1:33:431:33:44

As part of a BBC programme,

she spoke candidly about her journey

1:33:441:33:48

to the catherdral and the heaviness

of the crown she wore

1:33:481:33:51

when she was crowned.

1:33:511:33:52

You can't look down to read

the speech, you have to take

1:33:521:33:55

the speech up because

if you do, your neck

1:33:551:33:57

could break.

1:33:571:34:02

So there are some disadvantages

to crowns but otherwise,

1:34:021:34:04

they're quite important things.

1:34:041:34:10

A butcher who got frozen

in his own freezer described how

1:34:101:34:16

he used black pudding

to free himself.

1:34:161:34:24

Chris McCabe there.

1:34:261:34:31

The freezer door in Devon

blew shut behind him.

1:34:311:34:33

He was stranded in temperatures

less than -20 degrees.

1:34:331:34:40

He says he used the sausage

as a battering ram on the door's

1:34:401:34:43

release mechanism.

1:34:431:34:44

I couldn't work out how

to do it initially.

1:34:441:34:48

Then I found the black pudding

stick and tried to get

1:34:481:34:56

to get

an angle on this button.

1:34:571:35:01

I did it by hitting it.

1:35:011:35:03

As you can see, it's

not that easy now.

1:35:031:35:09

I will make sure there is black

pudding in my freezer the whole

1:35:091:35:13

time.

I always have one on me. But

in the black pudding World

1:35:131:35:19

Championships, you have to get them

on a plinth. The sliced one? Which

1:35:191:35:26

wouldn't be as useful?

You need a

long, hard one to get yourself out.

1:35:261:35:30

Tell us about the sport.

When is it

too late to say sorry? This was when

1:35:301:35:38

Northern Ireland bought a penalty

had cost them. Now, finally, the

1:35:381:35:43

referee who awarded a controversial

penalty which cost Northern Ireland

1:35:431:35:49

their world player has admitted he

got it wrong.

1:35:491:35:52

Ovidiu Hategan ruled

Northern Ireland's Corry Evans

1:35:521:35:53

blocked a shot, with his arm

during the first leg,

1:35:531:35:56

despite replays showing the ball

struck the player's shoulder.

1:35:561:35:59

Michael O'Neill's side went

on to lose the match 1-nil,

1:35:591:36:01

ending their hopes of reaching

a World Cup for the first time

1:36:011:36:05

in 32 years.

1:36:051:36:06

TRANSLATION:

It was a sad

and unpleasant moment to me.

1:36:061:36:09

Sad, because I made a mistake.

1:36:091:36:10

Painful, because with my team

of officials we had

1:36:101:36:13

been working well.

1:36:131:36:21

In my world, the referees

are the same as the goalkeepers.

1:36:231:36:26

Everybody has made a mistake.

1:36:261:36:28

Stephen Craig says two

months after the event,

1:36:281:36:30

it is pathetic.

1:36:301:36:31

With Andy Murray missing

through injury, British attention

1:36:311:36:33

at the Australian Open

will focus on Johanna Konta -

1:36:331:36:36

she's been drawn to face

the unseeded American,

1:36:361:36:38

Madison Brengle in the first round,

which starts on Monday.

1:36:381:36:41

The draw was made yesterday

with Roger Federer,

1:36:411:36:45

among the guests in Melbourne.

1:36:451:36:47

He'll start the defence of his title

against Aliash Bedene,

1:36:471:36:53

the former British number two,

who now represents his native

1:36:531:36:56

Slovenia.

1:36:561:36:56

Maria Sharapova, was also

at the draw, despite receiving

1:36:561:36:59

a drugs ban two years ago,

while competing in this

1:36:591:37:01

competition.

1:37:011:37:09

London's O2 Arena swapped Beiber

for Basketball as the NBA returned

1:37:091:37:12

to London last night.

1:37:121:37:13

The American basketball

league is looking

1:37:131:37:15

to expand its fanbase

here and across Europe,

1:37:151:37:17

but say a full time

franchise based in the UK

1:37:171:37:20

is looking increasingly unlikey.

1:37:201:37:21

This match saw a meeting of two

of the Eastern Conferences most

1:37:211:37:24

exciting teams, with

the Boston Celtics eventually

1:37:241:37:26

beating the Philadelphia 76-ers

by 114 points to 103.

1:37:261:37:28

Staying with American

sports in the capital,

1:37:281:37:30

and Tottenham's hopes

of starting the new season

1:37:301:37:32

in their new White Hart Lane

stadium have been boosted,

1:37:321:37:39

after it was announced Spurs'

refurbished ground will host

1:37:391:37:41

the first match of the NFL

London Series in 2018.

1:37:411:37:44

Seattle Seahawks will play

the Oakland Raiders

1:37:441:37:47

at White Hart Lane in October,

and the new stadium has special

1:37:471:37:50

features so both football

and American football

1:37:501:37:57

will have their own

playing surface,

1:37:571:37:59

apparently.

1:37:591:37:59

it has been my dream for a number

of years to crate something special

1:37:591:38:03

not just for our fans

but for NRL fans

1:38:031:38:05

and the local area and I believe

NFL and Premier League

1:38:051:38:08

soccer together, it will be

something unique in the world.

1:38:081:38:14

We have got two pitches.

1:38:141:38:17

The NFL pitch is the lower pitch.

1:38:171:38:21

The Premier League One one will go

under the South stand.

1:38:211:38:24

It will enable the NFL to have

as many games as they want

1:38:241:38:27

during that period.

1:38:271:38:29

British bobsleigher Bruce Tasker,

has been ruled out of competing,

1:38:291:38:31

at next month's Winter Olympics,

after suffering a minor

1:38:311:38:34

stroke last week.

1:38:341:38:35

Tasker was due to

compete in his second

1:38:351:38:37

Winter Games in Pyeongchang.

1:38:371:38:38

He was taken to hospital

on the 4th of January,

1:38:381:38:41

after experiencing dizziness

and nausea, but he is expected

1:38:411:38:43

to make a full recovery,

and resume his bobsleigh career

1:38:431:38:46

by next season.

1:38:461:38:53

And how about this for a good way

to start off the golfing year

1:38:531:38:57

for Wales' Jamie Donaldson.

1:38:571:38:58

This was his tee shot,

at the par three 14th hole

1:38:581:39:01

at the South Africa Open in Edevale.

1:39:011:39:03

And it went in for a hole in one.

1:39:031:39:05

Donaldson finished his round at two

under par, five shots off

1:39:051:39:08

the leader.

1:39:081:39:16

Finally, it's long been the stuff

of myths and fairytales,

1:39:161:39:18

but now mermaids and mermen,

swimming with huge tail fins

1:39:181:39:21

and competing in sport

is growing in the UK..

1:39:211:39:24

Until recently, pulling

on a tail, was really

1:39:241:39:26

only

1:39:261:39:26

something, you could experience

on holiday, like i did a few years

1:39:261:39:29

ago, and when done properly it can

make you 33 per-cent faster

1:39:291:39:33

in the water.

1:39:331:39:33

Nnow there are mermaid

and mermen academies in the UK

1:39:331:39:36

and professionals here too..and this

May, the UK will host

1:39:361:39:39

the Mer-lympics for the first time.

1:39:391:39:40

I was way off the pace

1:39:401:39:42

in this race.

1:39:421:39:43

As well as racing there

will be synchro swimming

1:39:431:39:45

and agility races.

1:39:451:39:47

I imagine you need a very strong

core to that.

Once you do put it on,

1:39:471:39:57

it feels like you have a tail,

instead of legs.

Your only good in

1:39:571:40:01

the water. So floundering on the

site? Do you remember that TV series

1:40:011:40:08

and the actor from Dallas? He was

half man, half fish? The man from

1:40:081:40:14

Atlanta's? It was. He could walk and

sometimes he turned into a fish? I

1:40:141:40:19

haven't made it up?

So this is after

your heart as well, this sport?

It

1:40:191:40:26

was Patrick Duffy. Thank you.

1:40:261:40:34

England could be facing its worst

flu season for seven years,

1:40:341:40:37

that's based on the sharp rise

in the number of cases GPs

1:40:371:40:40

have

seen in the past week -

1:40:401:40:42

up 78 per cent from last week.

1:40:421:40:44

There are three main

strains of flu this year -

1:40:441:40:47

H3N2, H1N1, and Flu B.

1:40:471:40:48

The H3N2 strain is also

known as 'Aussie flu',

1:40:481:40:51

while the B strain is also known

as 'Japanese flu' and is not covered

1:40:511:40:54

by some vaccines.

1:40:541:41:01

Let's talk about this now with GP,

Dr Rosemary Leonard.

1:41:011:41:09

These strains, no one cares what

strain they have when they have the

1:41:091:41:13

flu, it's just a rotten, book which

is hurting us the most?

The one that

1:41:131:41:20

is really common is the Japanese

strain, the B strain but we don't

1:41:201:41:24

test that. They are only testing for

it in hospital. The symptoms are

1:41:241:41:29

very similar. What's interesting,

the reason GPs are busy, a lot of

1:41:291:41:34

people know there is no treatment

for flu but they don't realise they

1:41:341:41:37

have the flu because they are

expecting a bunged up nose,

1:41:371:41:40

streaming cold, sore throat. What is

happening is you hurt all over. You

1:41:401:41:46

can't get out of bed in the morning

because your arms and legs won't

1:41:461:41:50

move. Your joints feel as if you

have arthritis. You feel poleaxed

1:41:501:41:55

with tiredness. People are saying

they don't know what is wrong but

1:41:551:42:00

that is the flu, along with a high

fever.

I was in my surgery

1:42:001:42:09

frantically busy. I'm going back

today. If someone Kim is in with

1:42:091:42:15

those symptoms and you diagnose that

you have the flu, there is nothing

1:42:151:42:20

you can do.

The problem is, people

and underlying medical

1:42:201:42:33

and underlying medical digressions,

they have chest infections,

1:42:331:42:35

pneumonia which can have a secondary

bacteria infection. For the vast

1:42:351:42:40

majority, there is nothing we can do

and all GPs have arguments. You must

1:42:401:42:49

be able to do something! We don't,

you just must rest.

Some patients

1:42:491:42:57

are having arguments it is

interesting. You have at some angry

1:42:571:43:02

people in the surgery.

They want

antibiotics? They just don't

1:43:021:43:07

understand there is nothing would

you can do. I had to get a patient

1:43:071:43:15

accompanied out of my room and even

though I said it would be easy for

1:43:151:43:18

me to give you a prescription, you

would be out of here, I can see the

1:43:181:43:22

next patient but it's not going to

make you better.

Can you understand

1:43:221:43:26

the frustration when people say, I

had the flu jab and it's not

1:43:261:43:31

protecting me. It was designed for

Aussie flu?

1:43:311:43:39

Aussie flu? It has As and a B. The

childhood nasal one is protecting

1:43:401:43:44

against the Japanese B strain which

is going around. The main back need

1:43:441:43:49

-- the main vaccine is not

protecting against the Japanese one

1:43:491:43:52

but that said, if you haven't had a

flu jab, the young people with

1:43:521:43:58

asthma, they are not coming up the

jabs as much. Pregnant women need to

1:43:581:44:03

come in and get the jab. You could

get B flu and then get the flu a

1:44:031:44:10

week later. What is the message you

are sending out? Those in the act

1:44:101:44:17

risk groups.

Go and get the vaccine

if you are in an at risk group.

1:44:171:44:24

Though not the surgery and ask. If

you think you have got the blue, he

1:44:241:44:31

can always burn your surgery for

advice. Wash your hands frequently.

1:44:311:44:37

This is really boring but wash your

hands. If you are hot desking at

1:44:371:44:42

work, wiped the keyboard is down.

Use tissues and pin them. Simple

1:44:421:44:48

hygiene stuff. It can make a

difference in stopping giving it to

1:44:481:44:54

somebody else.

It is coming up to

7:45 a.m.. Some breaking news. A

1:44:541:45:02

large fire has broken out at

Nottingham railway station. These

1:45:021:45:09

are the latest pictures. It's still

dark out there. Fire and Rescue are

1:45:091:45:15

saying they are dealing with a large

incident. The station has been

1:45:151:45:19

evacuated. East Midland trains say

all trains are cancelled and are

1:45:191:45:25

expecting disruptions. A large cord

and has been placed around the

1:45:251:45:31

station for safety but obviously

today, if you're planning to travel

1:45:311:45:36

anywhere near or through the railway

station, your plans. -- cordon.

1:45:361:45:43

Here is Matt with a look

at this morning's weather.

1:45:431:45:48

Here is Matt with a look

at this morning's weather.

1:45:481:45:49

Good morning.

Good morning, both of

you. Good morning as well. The

1:45:491:45:53

little is changing with the weather

at the moment. Some will see

1:45:531:45:58

sunshine, for most the grey skies

will remain. Some morning mist and

1:45:581:46:02

fog, even a bit of frost around. As

we go through Sunday night into

1:46:021:46:07

Monday there is a spell of wet and

windy weather set to push across the

1:46:071:46:11

country. That will bring a marked

change in the next week. Blue skies

1:46:111:46:14

back at times but it will feel

colder and there will be a little

1:46:141:46:18

bit of sleet and snow as we see

frequent showers pushing across the

1:46:181:46:22

UK. A few days away for the time

being, but stuck with the grave for

1:46:221:46:26

many. Across parts of Scotland,

western fringes of England and

1:46:261:46:31

Wales, either side of free. That is

because we have had too much cloud

1:46:311:46:35

through the night. Some dense

patches of fog to start the day, and

1:46:351:46:39

that will take awhile to shift. Some

issues on the morning commute.

1:46:391:46:43

Generally misty over the hills and a

cloud in eastern England throughout

1:46:431:46:46

the day quick enough -- thickener

for the odd spot of light rain and

1:46:461:46:50

drizzle. The sunshine will come out

here and there, the best favoured

1:46:501:46:53

for that parts of western Wales,

some in north-west England, and the

1:46:531:46:57

far north of Scotland. Temperatures

in the sunshine fairly similar, but

1:46:571:47:01

the sunshine will make all the

difference. Where you have clear

1:47:011:47:05

skies there could be a touch of

frost around parts of northern

1:47:051:47:08

Scotland best favoured. Patchy rain

and drizzle towards the east by

1:47:081:47:11

turning wet across Northern Ireland

for the night, and by the end of the

1:47:111:47:15

night, maybe into the western

fringes of Scotland, Pembrokeshire,

1:47:151:47:18

and also in the west Cornwall and

the Isles of Scilly. Keeping the

1:47:181:47:21

temperature is up here, cool further

east. Into the weekend forecast,

1:47:211:47:26

expect lots of cloud once again.

Maybe some brighter breaks the east

1:47:261:47:29

of England compared with recent

days. North-east Scotland seeing

1:47:291:47:33

sunshine. Elsewhere cloudy

conditions. Rain on and off

1:47:331:47:37

throughout the day in Northern

Ireland, turning down the far west

1:47:371:47:40

of Scotland, Wales, into Devon, and

for most of the further east you are

1:47:401:47:44

should be fairly dry. The wind

coming back off the continent, could

1:47:441:47:49

be some frost to take us from

Saturday night in the Sunday. In the

1:47:491:47:53

Sunday our weather front just decays

in situ. The Scotland and western

1:47:531:47:57

parts of England and Wales, cloudy,

damp day on Sunday. Some brighter

1:47:571:48:01

conditions towards the east of

England expected but the breeze will

1:48:011:48:05

freshen later on and here comes the

wet and windy weather I mentioned.

1:48:051:48:09

Gales and severe gales could

accompany a band of rain sweeping

1:48:091:48:12

its way southwards Andy Swiss

through Sunday night in the first

1:48:121:48:15

part of Monday. Some particularly

lively bursts of rain on that, gusty

1:48:151:48:19

winds as well, and follow the

isobars all the way back into

1:48:191:48:23

Greenlands, northern parts of

Canada. Much colder air set to push

1:48:231:48:26

in next week. It will sweep away the

greatness of the past few days,

1:48:261:48:30

introducing a little bit of sunshine

at times, but temperatures will drop

1:48:301:48:34

and you will notice the wind chill

more than anything else. Strong to

1:48:341:48:37

gale force winds through a good part

of next week and that will bring in

1:48:371:48:42

frequent showers, heavy hail and

thunder, and as the air gets colder

1:48:421:48:46

we expect some sleet and snow as

well, especially across northern and

1:48:461:48:49

western parts of the UK.

I will make

two observations. For one,

1:48:491:48:54

magnificent handwaving this morning.

But also, getting pretty nippy,

1:48:541:48:59

isn't it?

It is, yes. Still in the

throes of winter. You will notice

1:48:591:49:05

that next week, especially in the

wind.

I thought he would give us an

1:49:051:49:09

extra wave, but he has not risen to

it.

Jazz hands!

Banks are thinking

1:49:091:49:18

about sharing our information, and

supposedly it will be better for us

1:49:181:49:22

and we will get better deals from

them. This

1:49:221:49:24

and we will get better deals from

them. This is what Ben is looking

1:49:241:49:26

at.

A lot of scepticism about the

idea of sharing financial

1:49:261:49:32

information. We should say first of

all you have to agree to Sherratt

1:49:321:49:36

but also it is the idea of not

needing to fill into a form every

1:49:361:49:40

time you going to a different bank

or financial institution. It should

1:49:401:49:43

make it easier to move around and be

more fickle when it comes to things

1:49:431:49:47

like banking apps.

1:49:471:49:48

The way we bank, borrow

and save is about to change forever.

1:49:481:49:52

It is called open banking

and it is the biggest shakeup

1:49:521:49:55

in a generation.

1:49:551:49:55

So why, and what does

it mean for us?

1:49:551:49:58

Well, for years, our high street

banks have dominated the market

1:49:581:50:01

for savings and current accounts.

1:50:011:50:02

Most of us stay with the same bank

for decades, and so the regulator

1:50:021:50:06

wants to make it easier to shop

around, creating more competition.

1:50:061:50:09

We could save nearly £100 a year

just by switching banks,

1:50:091:50:12

and even more if you regularly use

a loan, overdraft or mortgage.

1:50:121:50:15

But, at the moment, there are too

many forms to fill in each time

1:50:151:50:19

we want to sign up to something new.

1:50:191:50:21

So new EU rules mean big

banks will be forced

1:50:211:50:24

to share our information,

if we ask them to, so we can sign up

1:50:241:50:28

to new deals, switch accounts,

or get better interest rates

1:50:281:50:31

at the click of a button.

1:50:311:50:38

But just how safe is it?

1:50:381:50:40

Well, when you sign up

for a new product, you will be asked

1:50:401:50:43

if you want your financial data

to be shared, and who you want

1:50:431:50:47

to share it with.

1:50:471:50:50

The first thing is bringing all our

accounts into one place, so I might

1:50:531:50:57

look on a smartphone or banking app

and see not just the current account

1:50:571:51:01

from that bank at other products and

services that I might have as well,

1:51:011:51:05

a credit card or loan and overdraft,

for example. The third one will be

1:51:051:51:09

around financial management, and

that will be things like overdraft

1:51:091:51:12

alerts, for example. Better products

which are more suited to me, and the

1:51:121:51:16

ability to switch to those products

as well.

But how safe is it?

Well,

1:51:161:51:28

it won't be if you don't agree to

it.

1:51:281:51:30

But not everybody is

convinced by the changes.

1:51:301:51:32

A recent survey found

that the majority of consumers

1:51:321:51:35

are sceptical about sharing

their financial data.

1:51:351:51:36

One of the biggest

concerns is security.

1:51:361:51:42

People will be sharing

sensitive financial data.

1:51:421:51:44

Third parties, perhaps brands

you have never heard

1:51:441:51:46

of, will be able to take a real peek

into your current account and look

1:51:461:51:51

at where you spend,

your habits and your vices,

1:51:511:51:53

and do you feel

comfortable sharing that?

1:51:531:51:55

Of course there is

the risk that that data

1:51:551:51:57

could go astray or it could be

intercepted by fraudsters,

1:51:571:52:00

and they would really

hold the keys to your

1:52:001:52:03

financial life.

1:52:031:52:03

Remember, you have to give your

permission before anyone can

1:52:031:52:06

see your data.

1:52:061:52:07

All this officially begins tomorrow,

but only a small number of the banks

1:52:071:52:10

say they are ready for the changes.

1:52:101:52:12

Others have been given more time.

1:52:121:52:17

Credit card companies,

mortgage firms and insurers

1:52:171:52:19

will all sign up soon, too,

so you might not notice any big

1:52:191:52:22

changes just yet.

1:52:221:52:27

But the changes are coming,

and the revolution starts tomorrow.

1:52:271:52:31

Would you try this behind us?

1:52:311:52:36

If you visit Thirlmere,

in the Lake District,

1:52:361:52:38

you might soon get a chance to.

1:52:381:52:40

A consultation on building a new zip

wire across the reservoir

1:52:401:52:43

there ends today.

1:52:431:52:50

Developers say it will encourage

tourism, but conservationists aren't

1:52:501:52:53

happy, as Breakfast's

Graham Satchell reports.

1:52:531:53:01

Hidden in the trees next

to Lake Windermere, a zip wire.

1:53:031:53:05

Keir and Will are about to go

down for the first time.

1:53:051:53:12

I booked this for his birthday.

1:53:121:53:18

He 20 tomorrow. -- he is 20

tomorrow.

1:53:191:53:30

Would you normally come

to the Lakes, anyway?

1:53:301:53:32

We haven't been before, no.

Go!

1:53:321:53:33

Bringing new people to the Lakes

is just one reason.

1:53:331:53:36

Treetop Trek want to build one more

zip wire half an hour

1:53:361:53:39

at the road, at Thirlmere.

1:53:391:53:41

So you can't really do this story

without actually having a go.

1:53:411:53:44

So here we go.

1:53:441:53:45

One, two, three!

1:53:451:53:47

So the people behind this new zip

wire say it will create 15 new jobs,

1:53:471:53:51

and should create £600,000

for the economy, and there should be

1:53:511:53:54

50,000 people a year using it.

1:53:541:53:55

It is about getting outdoors,

doing something you wouldn't

1:53:551:53:58

normally do, challenging yourself.

1:53:581:53:59

And I think the more people we can

encourage to get outdoors,

1:53:591:54:02

and to get up into the fells

and to get around the Lakes,

1:54:021:54:06

the better.

1:54:061:54:10

The plans would see four wires

going across the water one way,

1:54:101:54:13

at Thirlmere, a quick trek,

and then four wires going back

1:54:131:54:16

to the other side.

1:54:161:54:17

And this is Thirlmere -

breathtaking, majestic,

1:54:171:54:19

serene, and surprising.

1:54:191:54:20

It is surprising because, actually,

most of what you can see

1:54:201:54:23

here is man-made.

1:54:231:54:31

The trees, for example,

were planted in the early 1900s.

1:54:331:54:35

And the water is not a lake,

it is a reservoir, built

1:54:351:54:39

in the 1890s to supply

water to Manchester,

1:54:391:54:41

which it still does today.

1:54:411:54:49

There was a huge row,

when this reservoir was built,

1:54:501:54:53

between industrialists and city folk

to the south and a group of locals,

1:54:531:54:56

including the poet and philosopher

John Ruskin, who many consider to be

1:54:561:55:00

the founding father

of modern conservationists.

1:55:001:55:01

Ruskin lost the first

battle of Thirlmere.

1:55:011:55:03

But the group he was part of,

now called the Friends

1:55:031:55:11

of the Lakes District,

is determined not to lose this one.

1:55:111:55:14

I love getting out,

getting away from it all.

1:55:141:55:16

And I think having all these

visitors here will spoil that,

1:55:161:55:19

will spoil the landscape.

1:55:191:55:22

Zip wires have a place,

but not in this landscape,

1:55:221:55:25

and certainly not across

an expanse of open water.

1:55:251:55:27

I've been on one.

1:55:271:55:28

You do scream, you can't help it.

1:55:281:55:30

It would just be awful to have

that here, when you come

1:55:301:55:34

here for peaceful walks in nature.

1:55:341:55:39

What do you think John Ruskin would

have made of your zip wire proposal?

1:55:391:55:47

I have absolutely no

idea whatsoever.

1:55:481:55:50

But we shouldn't be afraid of words

like "thrill" and "fun."

1:55:501:55:53

They should go hand-in-hand with

words like "peace" and "serenity."

1:55:531:56:01

These pictures show what it might be

like to go on the proposed

1:56:011:56:04

new zip wire.

1:56:041:56:09

There is a big question here.

1:56:091:56:11

Should the Lake District be opened

up to more people who wouldn't

1:56:111:56:14

normally come, or should

it be left in peace,

1:56:141:56:16

as it is?

1:56:161:56:22

One thing is not in question, it is

a stunningly beautiful place.

I

1:56:231:59:48

in half an hour.

1:59:481:59:50

Bye for now.

1:59:501:59:51

Hello, this is Breakfast, with

Charlie Stayt and Naga Munchetty.

2:00:222:00:29

Donald Trump abandons plans to visit

Britain next month. He was planning

2:00:292:00:38

to visit next month despite planned

protests.

2:00:382:00:41

In the past few hours he's tweeted

that he has no intention of cutting

2:00:412:00:44

the ribbon because the building

represents a bad deal

2:00:442:00:46

for the United States.

2:00:462:00:47

This is how the US embassy

looks this morning.

2:00:472:00:52

We will be there with the latest

in the next few minutes.

2:00:522:01:00

It is Friday 12th of January, also

on the programme: firefighters

2:01:132:01:20

working to put out a large fire at

Nottingham train station. It has

2:01:202:01:25

been evacuated and some trains have

been cancelled.

2:01:252:01:31

Tributes are paid to an 18-year-old

woman who's died after catching

2:01:312:01:33

the flu virus, as figures show

a significant surge

2:01:332:01:35

in the number of cases.

2:01:352:01:36

The way we bank, borrow

and save is about to change forever.

2:01:362:01:39

And it starts tomorrow.

2:01:392:01:40

It's called Open Banking and means

you'll be able to ask your bank

2:01:402:01:43

to share your details with other

companies to get better deals.

2:01:432:01:46

I'll explain all you need to know.

2:01:462:01:53

Heartbreak on the eyes for British

bobsled star who is out of the

2:01:532:01:58

Winter Olympics after suffering a

minor stroke. The good news is that

2:01:582:02:02

he is expected to make a full

recovery.

2:02:022:02:06

And: as the Queen marks 65 years

since her Coronation,

2:02:062:02:09

for the first time Her Majesty lifts

the lid on what life

2:02:092:02:12

is like when you have

to wear a heavy crown.

2:02:122:02:15

You cannot look down to read the

speech, you have to take the speech

2:02:152:02:19

up because if you did your neck

would break!

2:02:192:02:22

Foggy and frosty for some but many

will have another great day but

2:02:252:02:28

there is some sunshine on the way, I

will tell you where that is and give

2:02:282:02:33

you the full weekend forecast and

news of colder weather next week in

2:02:332:02:36

the next 15 minutes.

2:02:362:02:38

Donald Trump has confirmed

he won't visit Britain next month.

2:02:412:02:45

In the past couple of hours the US

President tweeted that he had

2:02:452:02:48

cancelled the planned visit

as he didn't want to open

2:02:482:02:50

the new American embassy

commissioned by his predecessor,

2:02:502:02:52

Barack Obama.

2:02:522:02:53

Dan Johnson has the story.

2:02:532:02:57

After nearly 60 years flying

above London's Grosvenor Square,

2:02:572:03:05

the Stars and Stripes were lowered

ready for the opening

2:03:062:03:08

of the new US embassy.

2:03:082:03:09

It's billion-dollar building

on the Southbank and Donald Trump

2:03:092:03:11

was due to open it next month.

2:03:112:03:13

Now we know he won't and early this

morning, he posted his reasons

2:03:132:03:18

on Twitter:

2:03:182:03:25

But did the prospect of protests

like this also put him off?

2:03:452:03:47

This was the response to his ban

on travellers from certain

2:03:472:03:50

Muslim countries.

2:03:502:03:51

A petition drew 1.8 million

signatures with calls to ban him.

2:03:512:03:55

It shouldn't be a state visit

because it would be embarrassing

2:03:552:03:58

to the Queen and the rest of the UK.

2:03:582:04:01

Theresa May was the first

world leader to reach out

2:04:012:04:04

to the new President and a return

trip, a state visit,

2:04:042:04:07

was promised soon.

2:04:072:04:11

But then the President strained

the special relationship by sharing

2:04:112:04:15

online far-right videos

from the group called Britain First.

2:04:152:04:19

When Theresa May condemned,

he then retorted.

2:04:192:04:22

Just last weekend, she confirmed

the invite still stands.

2:04:222:04:25

He is taking decisions in the best

interests of the United States.

2:04:252:04:28

And he is coming to this country?

2:04:282:04:30

He will be coming to the country.

2:04:302:04:32

The Foreign Secretary denied

the Queen would be embarrassed.

2:04:322:04:37

I think Her Majesty the Queen

is capable of taking this

2:04:372:04:40

American President or any American

president in her stride,

2:04:402:04:43

as she has done over

six remarkable decades.

2:04:432:04:47

Let's be clear.

2:04:472:04:49

Opening this place was never

the same as a state visit.

2:04:492:04:52

It would have been a shorter,

less formal trip.

2:04:522:04:57

Meeting the Queen is still on,

expected this year, but no date

2:04:572:05:00

has been set.

2:05:002:05:01

The President is denying this

decision is down to politics

2:05:012:05:05

but after he offended more countries

with a foul-mouthed remark last

2:05:052:05:08

night, the list of places he is

welcome certainly isn't growing.

2:05:082:05:13

Our correspondent, John Donnison

is outside the American Embassy

2:05:132:05:15

for us this morning.

2:05:152:05:21

Good morning, Donald Trump making no

reference to potential protests over

2:05:212:05:25

here, he says it's all about the

rather magnificent building behind

2:05:252:05:28

you.

That's right, this is the "Off"

location as Donald Trump described

2:05:282:05:38

it and this is what $1 billion get

you. One of the workers told me it's

2:05:382:05:43

more like £1 billion, it has come in

over budget. Some of those workers a

2:05:432:05:48

bit bemused by all the attention. We

have heard it was cancelled from

2:05:482:05:54

Donald Trump's perspective. Talking

to a number of sources and several

2:05:542:05:58

told us it was cancelled because of

concerns about possible

2:05:582:06:03

demonstrations. Another source said

it was because the president did not

2:06:032:06:06

want to travel to Europe again so

soon after the Davos summit. Sources

2:06:062:06:13

did say it was not because of those

strained relations we were hearing

2:06:132:06:17

about in the report from Dan

Johnson.

For the moment, thank you

2:06:172:06:21

very much.

2:06:212:06:23

We

2:06:232:06:33

urge

2:06:332:06:34

We are hearing that

a large fire has broken

2:06:342:06:36

a large fire has broken

2:06:362:06:37

out at Nottingham railway station.

2:06:372:06:38

Nottinghamshire Fire and rescue say

they're dealing with a 'large

2:06:382:06:41

incident' with eight

appliances in attendance.

2:06:412:06:42

The station has been evacuated.

2:06:422:06:48

a statement from East Midlands

Trains seeing emergency services

2:06:482:06:52

have been called, no reports of

injuries to customers or staff and

2:06:522:06:56

East Midlands Trains say they will

continue to assist in the emergency

2:06:562:07:00

services however they can. Advice

for any would-be travels is that no

2:07:002:07:04

trains will be stopping at the

station and till further notice and

2:07:042:07:07

the advice to customers is to not

travel to or travel from Nottingham

2:07:072:07:11

station. Passengers advised to check

with East Midlands Trains.

2:07:112:07:20

An 18-year-old from the Scottish

Highlands has died after contracting

2:07:252:07:28

the flu virus. Bethany Walker was

airlifted to hospital in Inverness

2:07:282:07:36

from her home but her illness had

developed into pneumonia and staff

2:07:362:07:38

are unable to save her life. There

has been a sharp rise in the number

2:07:382:07:44

of flu cases seen by GP's, 5000

people admitted to hospital with flu

2:07:442:07:49

in the first week of January.

This

winter has proved tougher than any

2:07:492:07:55

previous. We as doctors put patient

care at the centre of our focus and

2:07:552:07:59

it is our number one priority. This

winter we have seen an unprecedented

2:07:592:08:03

levels that care being compromised,

delays in treatment, not being able

2:08:032:08:08

to see patients in a timely manner.

We decided it was time to speak up

2:08:082:08:13

and raise our concerns.

2:08:132:08:15

The role played by the media

is to be examined by the Manchester

2:08:152:08:18

Arena bombing inquiry.

2:08:182:08:19

22 people were killed at the end of

an Ariana Grande concert last May.

2:08:192:08:22

Some families who used social media

to appeal for information

2:08:222:08:25

about missing relatives found

themselves subjected

2:08:252:08:26

to intrusive attention.

2:08:262:08:27

Judith Moritz reports.

2:08:272:08:35

The Manchester Arena explosion

shattered countless lives. 22 were

2:08:362:08:40

lost. Many more were changed

forever. The attack made

2:08:402:08:45

international headlines and that

meant there was huge media interest

2:08:452:08:49

in the stories of those most closely

affected. They included the family

2:08:492:08:53

of Martin one of those killed in the

blast. Martin had a large social

2:08:532:08:58

media following and had previously

been on TV. Possibly as a result of

2:08:582:09:04

his family found themselves in the

spotlight from almost the very

2:09:042:09:07

moment they heard about the

explosion. And before the new Martin

2:09:072:09:12

did.

It seems a bit distasteful

really. How can anybody be so cruel

2:09:122:09:19

and go and say sorry for your loss?

We did not find a officially until

2:09:192:09:25

that evening he was dead.

Mirror an

independent panel will consider the

2:09:252:09:29

way the media covered the stories of

the bereaved and entered. The

2:09:292:09:34

Kerslake review panel will also

recommend that public organisations

2:09:342:09:37

adopt a charter which uses lessons

learned from the Hillsborough

2:09:372:09:42

disaster. It states that the

bereaved and vulnerable should be

2:09:422:09:45

treated with respect and put first

by those responding to such public

2:09:452:09:49

tragedies.

2:09:492:09:53

Jewellery worth millions of euros

that was stolen from the Ritz hotel

2:09:562:09:59

in Paris have been recovered

after one of the theives dropped his

2:09:592:10:02

bag whilst trying to escape.

2:10:022:10:03

Three men armed with axes

were arrested after being blocked

2:10:032:10:06

inside the building

on Wednesday evening.

2:10:062:10:07

Two accomplices waiting

outside on mopeds escaped -

2:10:072:10:09

but dropped a bag containing

all the jewellery after

2:10:092:10:11

crashing into pedestrians.

2:10:112:10:19

The weather and sports coming up a

little later on.

2:10:232:10:27

The Queen has spoken candidly

about her memories of her coronation

2:10:272:10:30

ahead of her 65th anniversary

on the throne in a rare interview

2:10:302:10:33

to be broadcast by the BBC.

2:10:332:10:34

Speaking to the Royal

commentator Alastair Bruce,

2:10:342:10:36

Her Majesty describes the weight

of the crown and being uncomfortable

2:10:362:10:41

in the carriage she travelled in.

2:10:412:10:42

Alastair will join us in a moment,

but first here's our Royal

2:10:422:10:45

correspondent Nicholas Witchell.

2:10:452:10:46

She famously doesn't do interviews.

2:10:462:10:50

This is probably as

close as she will get.

2:10:502:10:52

A conversation with questions

about the Coronation,

2:10:522:11:00

the Crown Jewels and

the Imperial State Crown worn

2:11:002:11:02

by her and her father,

King George VI.

2:11:022:11:04

Fortunately my father and I have

about the same sort of shaped head.

2:11:042:11:07

Once you put it on, it stays.

2:11:072:11:09

It just remains itself.

2:11:092:11:10

You have to keep your

head very still.

2:11:102:11:12

Yes, and you can't look

down to read the speech,

2:11:122:11:14

you have to take the speech

up because if you did,

2:11:142:11:21

your neck would break,

it would fall off.

2:11:212:11:23

So there are some disadvantages

to crowns but otherwise,

2:11:232:11:25

they're quite important things.

2:11:252:11:27

She rode her coronation

in the gold state coach.

2:11:272:11:30

It weighs four tonnes.

2:11:302:11:31

It's not built for comfort.

2:11:312:11:32

Horrible.

2:11:322:11:35

It's not meant for

travelling in at all.

2:11:352:11:40

It's only sprung on leather.

2:11:402:11:42

So it rocks around a lot?

2:11:422:11:43

Not very comfortable.

2:11:432:11:46

Were you in it for a long time?

2:11:462:11:48

I rode around London.

2:11:482:11:49

Really?

2:11:492:11:51

We must have gone

four or five miles.

2:11:512:11:53

You can only go at walking pace.

2:11:532:11:56

The horses couldn't

possibly go any faster.

2:11:562:11:58

It's so heavy.

2:11:582:12:02

65 years after the event, a monarch

talking about her coronation.

2:12:022:12:05

The Crown, the real one.

2:12:052:12:06

Nicholas Witchell, BBC News.

2:12:062:12:10

Alastair Bruce, who spoke

with the Queen, joins us now

2:12:102:12:13

from our Southampton studio.

2:12:132:12:18

Good morning, thank you for talking

to us, what was it like talking to

2:12:182:12:23

the Queen about these things?

It was

an enormous privilege, such a joy

2:12:232:12:28

after 22 years of planning the

possibility and then getting the

2:12:282:12:32

chance to film the crown jewels for

the first time. They belong to us

2:12:322:12:36

and giving a chance of our

production to tell the story to the

2:12:362:12:40

United Kingdom. Then having the

Queen herself explain the story was

2:12:402:12:43

lovely.

How many years in the

planning?

22 years.

Why did it take

2:12:432:12:52

so long?

As a young lad I made a

complete set of replicas out of the

2:12:522:12:58

clay and has played them at school.

A friend of mine at school have been

2:12:582:13:02

working on this for 22 years and

have been asking and now the Royal

2:13:022:13:07

collection have given permission and

the Queen also, to mark the 65th

2:13:072:13:11

anniversary.

Did it live up to

expectations?

Hugely, it was a huge

2:13:112:13:17

honour to go into the Tower of

London on treating sick of night and

2:13:172:13:21

film with some of the most precise

commitment

equipment in the world.

2:13:212:13:26

Then in October when we went to

Buckingham Palace.

The Queen to talk

2:13:262:13:32

about it, it is very exciting.

What

was she like?

She was unbelievably

2:13:322:13:38

charming to me. She has a delightful

sense of humour without in any way

2:13:382:13:43

undermining the importance and role

of the Crown jewels to her and all

2:13:432:13:46

of us. She made it very accessible

to understand what exactly like to

2:13:462:13:50

wear a crown and what it meant to

her to have this five lbs crown on

2:13:502:13:59

her head. It was made for King

Charles II in 1662, 1661, so long

2:13:592:14:06

time ago.

So doesn't it fit her head

if it was made for a man?

No, it was

2:14:062:14:15

made for a bewigged head of a great

king from the past but a frame was

2:14:152:14:20

made with it. Imagine five lbs in

wait, that is a lot of bags of sugar

2:14:202:14:25

and she was 27 which one must

remember.

We saw the pictures of the

2:14:252:14:32

crime being brought into the room

and a gentleman of white gloves,

2:14:322:14:36

does she touch it or is she

respectfully leaving it be?

Three

2:14:362:14:41

people are allowed to touch, the

Archbishop of Canterbury, the other

2:14:412:14:45

of course is the Queen. And the

crown jewel is the third person. The

2:14:452:14:52

Queen was interested because it was

the first time she had touched that

2:14:522:14:56

crown since she was crowned with it

in 1953 so she did sort of tappet

2:14:562:15:01

and take hold of it.

How long did

you have to talk to her?

An hour and

2:15:012:15:07

a half, it was really special. In

the middle of an afternoon. The team

2:15:072:15:11

worked really hard and I just had

the privilege of spending a peaceful

2:15:112:15:15

time helping the Queen reflect upon

our memories.

You mentioned at the

2:15:152:15:20

beginning of the interview that she

was quite frank and open, funny as

2:15:202:15:23

well. The programme is on on Sunday

evening, what can you give us, give

2:15:232:15:28

us a snippet which tells us the

things you spoke about?

I think what

2:15:282:15:36

is most exciting is that the Crown

's belong to us and they are

2:15:362:15:39

probably the best-known set of

national symbols in the world but

2:15:392:15:41

the least understood and I think

it's because the Queen understands

2:15:412:15:43

how important they are to us all

that she's helped us start the

2:15:432:15:47

process with the Royal collection of

making the Royal collection of Crown

2:15:472:15:52

Jewels better understood to the

whole of the Night King.

2:15:522:16:00

Not many others get to meet the

Queen. Where are you surprised by

2:16:012:16:05

how candid she was?

I think the

Queen had decided what she wanted to

2:16:052:16:10

talk about. I could not ask any

direct questions, so I made comments

2:16:102:16:14

on the Queen picked up on what she

wanted to say. She said it with

2:16:142:16:21

great delight. She was terribly

funny, I think. And very good at

2:16:212:16:26

explaining and remembering things

that had happened a long time ago.

2:16:262:16:30

There is an interesting story behind

the Crown, when it was buried, in

2:16:302:16:37

Windsor, what happened there?

King

George VI, the Queen 's father, was

2:16:372:16:44

worried about what would happen to

the Crown jewels if Britain was

2:16:442:16:47

invaded. In the Second World War,

the danger of that was very great.

2:16:472:16:52

He had them taken to Windsor Castle

from the tower. A library in doubt

2:16:522:16:57

about the principal stones and wrap

them in tissue paper and put them in

2:16:572:17:03

a ten. I remember these biscuit

tins. And they were just easily

2:17:032:17:10

hidden in a way that you could run

away with them. They were placed

2:17:102:17:13

underneath the ground and Windsor

Castle.

2:17:132:17:21

Castle. I don't think anyone would

know where to look.

What was the

2:17:212:17:25

sense you feel as the Queen reflects

on those years?

I think the Queen

2:17:252:17:33

has achieved a most remarkable

reign. And because the United

2:17:332:17:40

Kingdom hasn't had a correlation for

so long, we don't understand the

2:17:402:17:44

significance of the Crown Jewels and

what is lovely about these symbols,

2:17:442:17:46

they're a good guidance to a monarch

but also to anyone in a position of

2:17:462:17:52

leadership, whether running a garage

on a motorway or a shop at the

2:17:522:17:56

corner of the street. If you learn

to hold the sceptre of kingly power

2:17:562:18:02

with a glove, which is a tradition

in this country, started by Ed

2:18:022:18:05

Woodward, the confessor, then

reminds you of power and what more

2:18:052:18:09

beautiful way to remind people to be

gentle in the use of power.

Thank

2:18:092:18:16

you so much for talking to us this

morning.

2:18:162:18:20

'The Coronation' is on BBC One

this Sunday at 8pm.

2:18:202:18:28

Fascinating. Because it is

first-hand and it is what she is

2:18:292:18:31

saying.

2:18:312:18:34

Here's Matt with a look

at this morning's weather.

2:18:342:18:39

Good morning. It should be enough

time to tell you weather is

2:18:392:18:43

changing. Some

2:18:432:18:47

time to tell you weather is

changing. Some mist and fog. There

2:18:472:18:49

will be sunshine. On Sunday night,

expect wet and windy weather.

2:18:492:18:58

expect wet and windy weather. Blue

skies returning more likely. It will

2:18:592:19:00

feel colder. And a change in the jet

stream, it is rushing out of the US

2:19:002:19:09

and Canada and then we have this big

undulating pattern across the

2:19:092:19:14

Atlantic. Never quite reaching us.

But come Sunday night, that jet

2:19:142:19:22

stream rushes towards us and that

will help to engineer a change. For

2:19:222:19:27

many this morning, misty and damp.

Foggy conditions across western

2:19:272:19:32

England and Wales in particular.

Frosty in a few spots in the West.

2:19:322:19:38

Once that is gone, some sunshine for

West Wales, north-west England and

2:19:382:19:44

the North of Scotland. For most,

predominantly cloudy. A chance of

2:19:442:19:50

rain in the East. Temperatures

feeling better.

2:19:502:19:59

feeling better. A southerly air flow

across the country tonight. Some

2:19:592:20:03

frost in northern Scotland. A

weather front trying to bring about

2:20:032:20:09

change. It will be a slow process.

It will trundle eastwards, gradually

2:20:092:20:23

pushing across West Wales. The

heaviest of the rain is on exposed

2:20:232:20:29

hills. The southern portion of the

Brecon Beacons and into the Southern

2:20:292:20:36

Uplands later. The odd spot of

drizzle. A cool night for Saturday

2:20:362:20:45

and Sunday. A touch of frost, maybe,

patchy rain and drizzle, the best of

2:20:452:20:55

any sunny breaks towards the east.

The change comes later. Rather cold

2:20:552:21:00

on Sunday but wet and windy weather.

The jet stream will push that band

2:21:002:21:06

of heavy rain, severe gale force,

right across the country into

2:21:062:21:12

Monday. The isobars go all the way

up into Greenland, originating in

2:21:122:21:19

Canada, so much colder air to come.

Next week, after that wet start to

2:21:192:21:26

Monday, a good deal brighter, strong

to gale force winds will feed

2:21:262:21:31

frequent showers. Some may contain

sleet and snow. If you are fed up

2:21:312:21:38

with these great conditions, like

this picture shows, things are about

2:21:382:21:45

to change.

Thank you very much.

2:21:452:21:52

to change.

Thank you very much. We

have been hearing that a large fire

2:21:522:21:53

has broken out at Nottingham railway

station. Fire

2:21:532:21:57

has broken out at Nottingham railway

station. Fire and rescue say they

2:21:572:21:58

are dealing with a large incident.

Eight appliances are in attendance.

2:21:582:22:03

East Midlands Trains a all trains

through the station cancelled expect

2:22:032:22:06

disruptions for the rest of the

morning. Let's get the latest from

2:22:062:22:10

BBC Radio NottinghamHaley Compton.

What are you seeing?

Good morning. I

2:22:102:22:20

can see at least nine police and

fire engines at the moment on one

2:22:202:22:25

side of the train station. That is

on Queen Street. All of the roads

2:22:252:22:29

around the train station have been

blocked. There are passengers

2:22:292:22:33

thinking they're going to get their

trains and then are completely

2:22:332:22:37

bemused by the fact that the street

is just a scene of blue flashing

2:22:372:22:46

lights at the moment. There are lots

of fire fighters, picking up

2:22:462:22:49

helmets, speaking to each other,

changing shifts, and lots of people

2:22:492:22:54

from East Midlands Trains, they're

turning people away and directing

2:22:542:22:58

them to a coach service on the other

side of the street. At the moment, I

2:22:582:23:04

have been told there is most sign

anyone has been injured and no

2:23:042:23:09

fatalities to report at this moment.

I have spoken to people living

2:23:092:23:15

across the road from the train

station and apparently at 6:30am,

2:23:152:23:21

there were thick plumes of black

smoke coming out of the train

2:23:212:23:26

station because of unconfirmed

reports of a fire in one of the

2:23:262:23:30

toilets on the platform.

Maybe we

can return to the pictures, we were

2:23:302:23:38

showing these earlier, it is hard to

get a sense of the scale of the

2:23:382:23:42

blaze but from this camera angle, it

clearly a significant fire?

Well,

2:23:422:23:49

yes, at the moment, from the side of

the train station I am at,

2:23:492:23:55

apparently the plumes were very high

in the air, people could see it, it

2:23:552:24:00

is being masked at the moment by...

INAUDIBLE

2:24:002:24:09

INAUDIBLE

No indication so far

because the Fire Service is still in

2:24:142:24:18

control of this incident.

I hope to speak to the incident

2:24:182:24:21

commander in charge of what is going

on at the moment but clearly there

2:24:212:24:26

will be no one coming in or out of

the train station for a long time

2:24:262:24:29

today.

We believe that there. If

you're planning on travelling in

2:24:292:24:36

Nottingham, please check locally

about how it affect you. Apparently,

2:24:362:24:43

banks want to share our details and

that is supposed to be good for us?

2:24:432:24:57

Yes, rather than fill in a form, if

you share information, they can fill

2:24:572:25:02

out these forms automatically. The

way that we bank, borrow and save is

2:25:022:25:08

about to change forever. The

Revolution starts tomorrow, we're

2:25:082:25:13

told, you can ask your bank to share

your details with other companies.

2:25:132:25:17

It is designed to give you a better

deal and make it easier to switch

2:25:172:25:21

accounts and move money without

having to fill in long and laborious

2:25:212:25:25

forms. We should be clear, banks

will only do that if you agree to it

2:25:252:25:30

and you can stipulate how long you

want to share that information.

2:25:302:25:38

Elsewhere, the future

of building contractor,

2:25:462:25:48

Carillion hangs in the balance

amid fears it's close to collapse.

2:25:482:25:50

Another crisis meeting will be held

today after talks this week

2:25:502:25:53

ended without a deal

on its massive pension deficit.

2:25:532:25:55

Carillion is the UK's second largest

construction company and employs

2:25:552:26:00

43,000 around the world.

2:26:002:26:01

It's involved in all sorts

of Government building contracts

2:26:012:26:03

including the HS2 rail line.

2:26:032:26:04

Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg says

the social media site will reduce

2:26:042:26:07

clutter from the site -

after criticism that there are too

2:26:072:26:10

many adverts and promoted

posts from businesses.

2:26:102:26:11

He says he wants to prioritise

what he calls 'meaningful social

2:26:112:26:14

interactions' and felt

a responsibility to make

2:26:142:26:16

sure Facebook was good

for people's wellbeing.

2:26:162:26:17

And a British satellite has been

blasted into orbit on an Indian

2:26:172:26:23

rocket to make full-colour,

high-definition videos of Earth.

2:26:232:26:25

Rather than still images that

are currently the norm,

2:26:252:26:27

the satellite will be able to record

moving objects like cars or ships

2:26:272:26:30

and could be used for everything

from monitoring traffic to helping

2:26:302:26:33

rescuers after natural disasters.

2:26:332:26:34

We'll speak to the boss

of the British company behind

2:26:342:26:36

the satellite just after 8:30am.

2:26:362:26:37

We will be speaking to the Chief

Executive later. It is about the

2:26:372:26:40

detail you can see.

It is the idea

that it is high-definition and a

2:26:402:26:44

video rather than still images.

Natural disasters, it will help

2:26:442:26:49

rescuers, traffic monitoring,

fascinating.

And business

2:26:492:26:53

opportunities as well. Thanks very

much. We will

2:26:532:26:56

also be speaking to Nigel Farage

shortly.

2:26:562:27:01

Time for the news, travel

and weather where you are.

2:27:012:30:21

Bye for now.

2:30:212:30:27

Hello, this is Breakfast with

Charlie Stayt and Naga Munchetty.

2:30:272:30:33

Here's a summary of this morning's

main stories from BBC News.

2:30:332:30:39

Donald Trump has confirmed that he

has abandoned plans to visit Britain

2:30:392:30:42

next month. He was expected to open

the new American Embassy in London

2:30:422:30:46

at the end of February. Earlier this

morning, the president tweeted that

2:30:462:30:50

he has cancelled the visit because

he doesn't agree with the location

2:30:502:30:53

and cost of the building. Let's get

to our correspondent outside the

2:30:532:31:00

American Embassy. There was always a

row over any visit by Donald Trump.

2:31:002:31:07

He has given his reasons, and it is

about the remarkable building behind

2:31:072:31:12

you. Tell us more?

It is a

remarkable building. And this is the

2:31:122:31:19

oft location, as Donald Trump calls

it, in Vauxhall, just south of the

2:31:192:31:24

River Thames. The building itself

cost more than $1 billion. This is

2:31:242:31:28

what you get. It is due to open the

process visas as early as next week,

2:31:282:31:34

but now Donald Trump is not coming,

it seems like his Secretary of

2:31:342:31:39

State, Rex Tillerson, will come. One

of the things that was interesting

2:31:392:31:42

in the tweet that Donald Trump put

out was that he said he didn't want

2:31:422:31:46

to back a decision of the Obama

administration, who he blamed for

2:31:462:31:51

selling the Grosvenor Square site

and moving here. But that decision

2:31:512:31:55

was made in 2008 under George W

Bush, before President Obama was in

2:31:552:32:01

office.

Jon, thank you.

2:32:012:32:11

Some breaking news, and we're

hearing that a large fire has broken

2:32:112:32:14

out at Nottingham railway station.

2:32:142:32:15

Nottinghamshire Fire and rescue say

they're dealing with a "large

2:32:152:32:18

incident", with ten

appliances in attendance.

2:32:182:32:19

The station has been evacuated.

2:32:192:32:23

East Midland Trains say all trains

through the station are cancelled

2:32:232:32:25

and they expect disruptions

for the rest of the morning.

2:32:252:32:33

An 18-year-old from the Scottish

Highlands has died after

2:32:352:32:37

contracting the flu virus.

2:32:372:32:38

Bethany Walker was airlifted

to hospital in Inverness

2:32:382:32:41

from her home in Wester Ross,

but her illness had developed

2:32:412:32:44

into pneumonia and staff

were unable to save her.

2:32:442:32:48

Elsewhere, in England,

there has been a sharp rise

2:32:482:32:50

in the number of flu cases

seen by GPs.

2:32:502:32:52

5,000 people were admitted

to hospital with flu

2:32:522:32:54

in the first week of January.

2:32:542:33:01

The next stages will be large

numbers of patients coming to

2:33:012:33:05

significant harm and an increase in

mortality across all of our

2:33:052:33:09

hospitals because patients are not

getting the treatment they require

2:33:092:33:12

in the time that they require.

2:33:122:33:17

It is time to talk to Mike.

We are

looking back to something that

2:33:192:33:24

happened in November, a sense of

injustice for Northern Ireland fans,

2:33:242:33:27

who believed their referee cost them

a place in the World Cup.

2:33:272:33:34

"Pathetic" - that's how one former

Northern Ireland star,

2:33:342:33:36

Stephen Craigan, has described

the admission by the referee

2:33:362:33:40

that he got a controversial penalty

decision in November wrong.

2:33:402:33:43

The referee Ovidiu Hategan ruled

that Northern Ireland's Corry Evans

2:33:432:33:47

blocked a shot with his arm

during the first leg

2:33:472:33:49

of their World Cup play-off

against Switzerland -

2:33:492:33:51

despite replays showing the ball

struck the player's shoulder.

2:33:512:33:54

Michael O'Neill's side went

on to lose the match 1-0,

2:33:542:33:56

ending their hopes of reaching

a World Cup for the first

2:33:562:33:59

time in 32 years.

2:33:592:34:00

Now the ref says he made a mistake.

2:34:002:34:02

TRANSLATION:

It was a sad

and unpleasant moment to me.

2:34:022:34:06

Sad, because I made a mistake.

2:34:062:34:10

Painful, because with my team of

officials, we had been working well.

2:34:102:34:15

In our world, the referees

are the same as the goalkeepers.

2:34:152:34:20

Everyone sees the mistake.

2:34:202:34:23

With Andy Murray missing

through injury, British attention

2:34:232:34:25

at the Australian Open will focus

on Johanna Konta.

2:34:252:34:32

Brengel in the first

2:34:322:34:33

round, which starts on Monday.

2:34:332:34:34

The draw was made yesterday

with Roger Federer, among

2:34:342:34:36

the guests in Melbourne.

2:34:362:34:40

He'll start the defence of his title

against Aljaz Bedene,

2:34:402:34:42

the former British number two,

who now represents

2:34:422:34:44

his native Slovenia.

2:34:442:34:45

Maria Sharapova was also at the draw

despite receiving a drugs ban two

2:34:452:34:48

years ago while competing

in this competition.

2:34:482:34:50

British bobsleigher Bruce Tasker has

been ruled out of competing at next

2:34:502:34:53

month's Winter Olympics

after suffering a minor

2:34:532:34:55

stroke last week.

2:34:552:34:56

Our thoughts are with him.

2:34:562:34:58

Tasker was due to compete in his

second Winter Games in PyeongChang.

2:34:582:35:04

He was taken to hospital on 4th

of January after experiencing

2:35:042:35:06

dizziness and nausea,

but he is expected to make a full

2:35:062:35:09

recovery and resume his bobsleigh

career by next season.

2:35:092:35:13

And how about this for a good way

to start off the golfing year

2:35:132:35:16

for Wales' Jamie Donaldson?

2:35:162:35:20

This was his tee shot,

at the par three 14th hole at

2:35:202:35:23

the South Africa Open in Edenvale.

2:35:232:35:24

And it went in for a hole in one.

2:35:242:35:27

Donaldson finished his

round at two under par,

2:35:272:35:29

five shots off the leader.

2:35:292:35:37

More sport tomorrow, including that

in-depth report on mermaids and

2:35:372:35:40

mermen competing in this country!

2:35:402:35:46

We can talk now to the fire

commander regarding that fire at

2:35:522:35:56

Nottingham station. I know you are

busy at the scene. Tell us what is

2:35:562:36:02

going on?

The fire this morning was

at Nottingham train station, not

2:36:022:36:07

Nottingham fire station. Crews

arrived at 6.30 this morning to a

2:36:072:36:10

significant fire in the new section

of Nottingham train station. The

2:36:102:36:17

fire was in the concourse area and

crews reported a severe fire in the

2:36:172:36:22

blocks. Unfortunately, the fire

spreading to the roof of the new

2:36:222:36:26

section of Nottingham train station

and is now travelling across the

2:36:262:36:30

concourse area and across the main

lines into Nottingham train station.

2:36:302:36:36

We have in the region of 60

firefighters currently at the scene,

2:36:362:36:39

and we are fighting the fire from

inside the building using hose reels

2:36:392:36:45

and jets. But it is a significant

incident.

As you say, it is at the

2:36:452:36:51

rail station. Thanks for clarifying

that. There is a cordon around the

2:36:512:36:55

area and we understand there are no

trains running to and from the

2:36:552:36:58

station. Any idea how long the

situation will continue?

From a

2:36:582:37:04

firefighting point of view, it will

be a considerable amount of time. In

2:37:042:37:07

terms of the impact to rail traffic,

that will be an issue for Network

2:37:072:37:12

Rail. But our crews are working in

arduous conditions to bring the fire

2:37:122:37:17

under control. That is the focus of

our attention at this time.

Thank

2:37:172:37:23

you for talking to us. That was Bryn

Coleman, the incident commander for

2:37:232:37:29

Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue

Service.

2:37:292:37:44

The former Ukip leader Nigel Farage

made it his political mission

2:37:452:37:47

for the UK to have a vote

to leave the EU.

2:37:472:37:52

Mr Farage joins us now. We will talk

about a possible second referendum

2:37:522:37:57

in a moment. But our lead story

today is about Donald Trump, who you

2:37:572:38:01

have connections with. He has

tweeted this morning that he will

2:38:012:38:03

not be coming to the UK next month,

his reasons being about

2:38:032:38:08

decision-making over the embassy.

What do you make of what he said?

I

2:38:082:38:12

can't comment on the real estate

value of the American Embassy. I am

2:38:122:38:16

not a real estate guy. I guess he

is, and he sees Obama as being

2:38:162:38:21

profligate with money. But there is

another issue here. This guy has

2:38:212:38:25

been all over the world. He has been

to France, Italy, Belgium, Poland,

2:38:252:38:29

China. He has been on big visits all

over the world, and yet here in this

2:38:292:38:36

country, we have a Labour Party who

effectively want to ban him and say

2:38:362:38:40

that if he comes, there will be mass

street protests. I just wonder

2:38:402:38:46

whether he thinks, given the huge

respect he has for this country,

2:38:462:38:50

whether he thinks that would give a

bad image.

It's interesting that you

2:38:502:38:54

phrase it in that way. A lot of

people who know him possibly better

2:38:542:38:58

than you do say that is the kind of

thing he would take no notice of,

2:38:582:39:02

the idea that people might object a

bit. He would come anyway. But you

2:39:022:39:06

are suggesting that some of the

noises made here from certain

2:39:062:39:11

parties might have had an impact.

Even in France, with someone like

2:39:112:39:17

President Macron, who has completely

different politics to Trump, he was

2:39:172:39:22

taken there on Bastille Day and was

treated with respect, as he has been

2:39:222:39:26

all over the world, Saudi Arabia,

China. I just think the idea that

2:39:262:39:31

the left in this country would stir

up 100,000 people on the streets of

2:39:312:39:38

London, maybe they are thinking, we

will hang back a bit. And I am

2:39:382:39:41

sorry, because whether you like

Trump or not, he is the most

2:39:412:39:46

pro-British president we have had

for a long time.

We understand the

2:39:462:39:51

state visit is still on for an

undefined time in the future. You

2:39:512:39:57

don't think that is affected?

He

will come at some point, but he is

2:39:572:40:02

busy at the moment. They also have

big mid-term elections coming up in

2:40:022:40:07

November and he has just decided

this is not the right trip for the

2:40:072:40:10

moment. But as I say, given the

trade and defence relationship we

2:40:102:40:16

have with America, it's a shame he

hasn't been already.

Have you spoken

2:40:162:40:21

to him lately?

Not for a little bit.

But I know his team. He is just busy

2:40:212:40:27

putting into place the manifesto

upon which he was elected. The UK

2:40:272:40:33

economy is doing well and he is

fine.

OK, clarification time. This

2:40:332:40:38

is your first broadcast interview

since you were on Channel 5

2:40:382:40:41

yesterday morning. The quote and

then, I will just read it out. This

2:40:412:40:46

is about the chance of a second

referendum. You said maybe I am

2:40:462:40:50

reaching the point of thinking we

should have a second referendum on

2:40:502:40:53

EU membership. What are you saying?

I have now accepted that like most

2:40:532:41:01

levers, I have been in denial. I

have been saying, we had a

2:41:012:41:06

referendum, that was the end of it.

Parliament was my job is simply to

2:41:062:41:10

get on with it. I can now see that

we face a very real danger of any

2:41:102:41:14

deal that is done, and don't forget,

I went to meet Mr Barnier on Monday,

2:41:142:41:18

I can see any deal that this done

before the end of this year being

2:41:182:41:24

rejected by the House of Commons and

the House of Lords, and I fear that

2:41:242:41:28

Parliament will attempt to impose a

second referendum upon us. So rather

2:41:282:41:33

than being in denial, I may as well

accept that possibility and say that

2:41:332:41:38

all Leave voters, this is a big

wake-up call. This happened in

2:41:382:41:41

Denmark. It has happened in Ireland.

All over Europe, rejection

2:41:412:41:45

referendums have been rerun and we

on the Leave side need to be

2:41:452:41:49

prepared.

You say you fear it, but

the implication is that you fear you

2:41:492:41:55

might lose it.

No, I think we would

win it and I think the arrogance of

2:41:552:41:59

the EU negotiators has upset the

British people. Also, Mr Juncker,

2:41:592:42:05

the European Commission president

said that in future, all members of

2:42:052:42:08

the European Union must join the

euro and the European army. I think

2:42:082:42:11

if we had a second referendum, the

Leave side would win by a bigger

2:42:112:42:16

majority and that would probably end

the argument for all time. I would

2:42:162:42:20

much rather we weren't even having

this debate, but I do think the

2:42:202:42:24

Leave side needs to get ready

because I do not trust our members

2:42:242:42:27

of Parliament to stick to their

election manifestos. This could be

2:42:272:42:31

forced upon us and I want to be

ready.

This is complicated, because

2:42:312:42:38

this scenario is, in the event of a

no deal, there would be a vacuum, as

2:42:382:42:47

some have described it. So you would

have been to Parliament, they have

2:42:472:42:52

rejected the deal and Theresa May

says, let's ask the question again.

2:42:522:42:56

That is the only way this could

happen. But equally, there could be

2:42:562:43:00

a vote in the House of Commons post

the rejection of a deal and believe

2:43:002:43:04

me, having met Mr Barnier on Monday,

he is not going to offer us an

2:43:042:43:08

attractive deal, which is what many

of the Remainers in this country

2:43:082:43:12

want. They want the deal to be as

bad as possible because they want to

2:43:122:43:15

force a second vote. And Parliament

does not have a Brexit majority. We

2:43:152:43:21

have to be alert to the fact that

there could be a second referendum

2:43:212:43:25

forced upon us. I pray that it is

not, but if it is, I want to be

2:43:252:43:30

ready.

Thank you for your time.

2:43:302:43:37

Let's talk to Matt. I understand it

is going to get more miserable?

Not

2:43:372:43:45

miserable cold, rain, wind? But a

bit more sunshine, though

2:43:452:43:49

miserable cold, rain, wind? But a

bit more sunshine, though. OK, the

2:43:492:43:50

next few days do stay great, but

there are changes on the way.

2:43:502:43:57

Things will turn wet on Sunday night

into Monday. But once that clears

2:43:572:44:01

through, sunnier skies will return

but there will be showers around and

2:44:012:44:06

it will feel chilly, windy and some

of the showers will be wintry. The

2:44:062:44:11

jet stream is what fires weather

systems. At the moment, it is coming

2:44:112:44:14

out of US and Canada and doing a

meandering pattern across the

2:44:142:44:20

Atlantic, never really pushing

anything towards us. It is driving

2:44:202:44:24

things north and south of the UK.

That is why we have been sat with

2:44:242:44:28

misty and foggy conditions over the

last few days. There will be a

2:44:282:44:30

change by Sunday, driving right our

way and introducing the change I

2:44:302:44:36

talked about. But at the moment, it

is misty and grey, with fog towards

2:44:362:44:42

the south-west. Where you have

frost, you will probably see some

2:44:422:44:47

sunshine. The odd bright brick

elsewhere, but foremost, it is a

2:44:472:44:54

cloudy day. The club will be thick

enough across the east of England

2:44:542:44:57

for spots of rain and drizzle.

Temperatures are where they should

2:44:572:45:00

be for the time of year, but feeling

better where you the sunshine.

2:45:002:45:06

Tonight, the breeze will pick up in

the West. That. The fog, but with it

2:45:062:45:11

comes some rain into Northern

Ireland. Further east, we will see

2:45:112:45:17

the odd spots of rain and drizzle

and a few clear spells. The biggest

2:45:172:45:21

gaps in the cloud will be to the

north of Scotland. Over the weekend,

2:45:212:45:26

get ready for lots of cloud once

again. Maybe a few brighter breaks

2:45:262:45:33

in eastern England compared with

recent days. But the wettest weather

2:45:332:45:36

will be on and off in Northern

Ireland, turning light and patchy

2:45:362:45:40

through the day. The heaviest rain

will be on the hills facing that

2:45:402:45:45

southerly direction. Temperatures

may be down on today's values.

2:45:452:45:51

Through Saturday night into Sunday,

the referendum there -- the weather

2:45:512:45:57

front stays where it is. But the big

change comes later in the day west

2:45:572:46:05

of Scotland and Northern Ireland,

turning wetter and windier. The

2:46:052:46:10

weather front will gradually work is

way southeastwards. A spell of

2:46:102:46:14

severe gales to go with the heavy

rain and then we follow the isobars

2:46:142:46:19

back into colder air to take us into

next week. Not just colder, but we

2:46:192:46:23

will see widespread gales at times

and with it, we will see some wintry

2:46:232:46:28

showers. So all change next week

after the great conditions we have

2:46:282:46:31

at the moment.

2:46:312:46:37

No alarm call tomorrow morning. What

time did it go off tomorrow?

3am. I

2:46:372:46:44

think I have a 9am start tomorrow.

What were you doing at 3:58am?

I

2:46:442:46:50

think I was going here.

There was an important lodge this

2:46:502:46:54

morning.

2:46:542:46:57

Just before four o'clock this

morning, the Indian space

2:46:572:46:59

agency launched a British

satelite into space.

2:46:592:47:00

From 300 miles above the Earth,

it can zoom its cameras

2:47:002:47:03

on to an area the size of a bin lid

and send back HD video.

2:47:032:47:09

We can talk to the head of the

company behind the launch, Earth-i.

2:47:102:47:14

You hope to send another five

satellites into space this year,

2:47:142:47:19

Richard Bain, chief executive of

Earth-i?

2:47:192:47:23

We have recently signed a contract

with the UK manufacturer, a global

2:47:232:47:30

leader in the manufacture of small

satellites. We did that back in

2:47:302:47:33

November to provide our next five

satellites, which we anticipate

2:47:332:47:37

launching towards the end of 2019.

You have brought in a model. This is

2:47:372:47:43

what has gone up into space today,

but how much bigger than this is the

2:47:432:47:49

real thing?

It weighs about 100

kilos, it is about the size of a

2:47:492:47:54

washing machine. In terms of

satellites it is relatively small,

2:47:542:47:57

but what is happening in the

satellite industry is that the

2:47:572:48:01

technology and the costs are

shrinking down, we have far more

2:48:012:48:05

capability packed into a much

smaller package. We get that into

2:48:052:48:09

space more cheaply.

What is it

capable of?

The interesting thing

2:48:092:48:16

about this satellites, British

technology with a global first, the

2:48:162:48:18

first commercially available colour

video in high definition from space

2:48:182:48:24

with a fleet of satellites. This is

the Pathfinder, this was launched

2:48:242:48:28

from India at 3:58am, as you said,

it separated from the rocket at

2:48:282:48:33

4:17am. We had our hearts and our

mouths as we waited to see that was

2:48:332:48:41

successful, then later we establish

successful contact with the

2:48:412:48:45

satellite.

This is the launch. You established

2:48:452:48:49

contact when?

At about 6:52am, I

think it was.

And what does that

2:48:492:48:57

mean? What did you get from it?

Confirmation that not only has the

2:48:572:49:03

satellite been successfully deployed

from the rocket, but that it is

2:49:032:49:07

turned on and communicating with the

grounds. So we are getting what we

2:49:072:49:12

called telemetry data, which tells

us about the health of the satellite

2:49:122:49:16

and tells us about the operator, it

helps is to stabilise the satellite.

2:49:162:49:24

When it comes off the rocket it is

tumbling a little, so one of the

2:49:242:49:28

first jobs is to get appointing in

the right direction.

2:49:282:49:31

It is miles above the Earth, I have

got my barbecue in the back garden,

2:49:312:49:39

can you film matter? -- it is 300

miles above the Earth.

2:49:392:49:43

How close can you go on earth?

We

can take a video clip of up to two

2:49:432:49:49

minutes long, of an area of the

Earth 25 square kilometres, about

2:49:492:49:53

five kilometres by five kilometres.

As we are doing that, if we were to

2:49:532:49:58

zoom in on those pictures we could

see things in there which are about

2:49:582:50:03

a metre, we could discern objects

about a metre size.

How detailed are

2:50:032:50:07

they? If I took a picture of you

now, I could see the Czechs in your

2:50:072:50:13

shirt, what would you see in terms

of if it was you?

It is very

2:50:132:50:18

difficult to see individuals with

the satellite...

We are not at Big

2:50:182:50:24

Brother stagette? You could see

vehicles?

We could tell the

2:50:242:50:31

difference between a car, barn,

truck and bus, we can measure sizes

2:50:312:50:35

to within 70 or 80 centimetres of an

object.

This is a commercial

2:50:352:50:40

venture, so how will businesses use

the data and information these

2:50:402:50:44

uprights are getting?

The

interesting thing from data and

2:50:442:50:50

spaces, there are many uses not only

in business and commerce but in

2:50:502:50:55

security, agriculture, disaster

relief. There are many applications.

2:50:552:50:59

This sort of data is of interest to

all sorts of people all over the

2:50:592:51:02

world. Some commercial examples may

be something like monitoring the

2:51:022:51:07

development of a large

infrastructure projects in a

2:51:072:51:12

location on Earth which is very

difficult to reach by road or

2:51:122:51:17

transports.

What evidence do you

make to make sure you are not... The

2:51:172:51:21

Word spying, doing something you

shouldn't be, possibly unwittingly?

2:51:212:51:25

If somebody says I would like you to

film this thing, do you just do it?

2:51:252:51:31

What checks do you have that you are

not looking at something you

2:51:312:51:34

shouldn't be looking at?

There are guidelines and regulations

2:51:342:51:37

in terms of the way you can take

satellite imagery, who you can sell

2:51:372:51:43

it to. We ensure we abides carefully

by all of those processors and

2:51:432:51:47

checks and balances.

Who's guidelines are those?

2:51:472:51:52

Generally by the individual space

agency, which grants the space

2:51:522:51:55

license. In this case it is granted

by the UK space agency, which is

2:51:552:52:00

very active in the UK. Space in the

UK is a huge industry, you may not

2:52:002:52:06

know this. By 2030 it is the

objective of the UK space agency

2:52:062:52:11

under the government innovation

growth strategy to capture around

2:52:112:52:13

10% of the global space markets,

representing around £40 billion a

2:52:132:52:19

year for the UK economy.

But within

the rules?

2:52:192:52:24

Absolutely.

Richard Bain, Chief

Executive of Earth-i, thank you. And

2:52:242:52:27

congratulations.

2:52:272:52:32

It's time to talk about a motor

racing team with a difference.

2:52:322:52:35

Four former British soldiers,

all injured in combat,

2:52:352:52:37

will compete in the GT Championship

in specially designed cars

2:52:372:52:39

which allow them to compete

against able-bodied drivers.

2:52:392:52:47

He's with a former soldier

who served with some of the team.

2:52:512:52:55

And a rather impressive vehicle.

I

am at auto sport International, on

2:52:552:53:00

all weekend at the Birmingham NEC.

The Invictus racing team has been

2:53:002:53:05

launched. The Invictus Games was a

sporting competition for wounded,

2:53:052:53:10

injured and sick service personnel,

now it is entering the world of Mort

2:53:102:53:14

-- of motorsport. One of the

competitors then was myself, and I

2:53:142:53:18

competed against Paul. We took on

cycling, how have you moved from

2:53:182:53:24

cycling to motorsport?

About cycling is an active sport, as

2:53:242:53:26

you get a bit older and rounding you

want to slowdown in life and then I

2:53:262:53:33

thought, let's go faster. Got into

motorsport and then Invictus Games

2:53:332:53:36

racing, and the vehicle can be

adapted to anything I want, for my

2:53:362:53:41

physical disabilities. We were

toying with the ideas of maybe a

2:53:412:53:43

hand controlled clutch to save

weight, if I need to ditch my legs

2:53:432:53:48

are the extra four kilos, the

prostatic scanner that is how

2:53:482:53:52

seriously we are taking it. And with

James at the helm, running the

2:53:522:53:58

development stage, we will get in

front.

Basil, this is so much more

2:53:582:54:02

than just the drivers, it comes

under the Invictus umbrella, it is

2:54:022:54:06

about spreading the love to as many

people as possible?

I need to

2:54:062:54:11

mention Ben Northwick, who is not

here today. And fortunately he had

2:54:112:54:15

to go to work, he has a real job. It

is about spreading it to as many

2:54:152:54:21

people as possible. The Invictus

Games is an excellent foundation and

2:54:212:54:25

gives people the opportunity to get

out and do something and be active

2:54:252:54:31

and compete and be part of a team

again and be part of a greater

2:54:312:54:35

military family.

We cannot wait to

see you in action. If the card does

2:54:352:54:39

not give you an idea of how serious

they are taking it, you can see this

2:54:392:54:45

massive race truck. It is a

Winnebago, outrageously big, it is

2:54:452:54:50

the sort of thing Lewis Hamilton

has. Sparing no expense, trying to

2:54:502:54:53

give them the real experience of

being part of a race team. The

2:54:532:54:57

brainchild, the man his brainchild

was, is James Holden. Why is this

2:54:572:55:03

underneath the Invictus umbrella?

We

needed a partner organisation, I

2:55:032:55:08

wanted to do something cool for

charity for quite awhile. Invictus

2:55:082:55:12

was perfect, everything it stands

for resonate with me. We thought we

2:55:122:55:15

would the excitement of motorsport,

bringing these war he runs into

2:55:152:55:20

action, give them an amazing

challenge for the year, open the

2:55:202:55:25

project to not only the drivers but

engineers, pit crews, etc, and in

2:55:252:55:30

the summer open it to the entire

Invictus community with VIP events

2:55:302:55:33

where we throw these guys around and

race cars.

2:55:332:55:37

It is a very wide initiative and

Invictus are the perfect ice to

2:55:372:55:41

partner with.

Steve is one of the drivers who will

2:55:412:55:44

be starting the season, and I served

in Afghanistan with this man,

2:55:442:55:47

believe it or not. You have been

motor racing for a while, how does

2:55:472:55:52

this car and competition compared to

what you have done?

2:55:522:55:57

About a massive step up, I will not

deny. The four years I have had has

2:55:572:56:01

put me in great stead,

I have

learned a lot about race and ship.

2:56:012:56:04

It be a lot more exciting. I can't

wait to get into car.

We cannot wait

2:56:042:56:11

to follow the action and see how you

get on, you are not here to make up

2:56:112:56:16

the numbers?

No, we are taking it

seriously, doing simulated training.

2:56:162:56:21

Please come along, follow us, watch

at the track, followers Patrick

2:56:212:56:27

Racing

2:56:272:56:32

Racing Invictus -- follow us as

Racing Invictus.

They are not making

2:56:332:56:40

up the numbers, they are military

fellas, competition is what they do.

2:56:402:56:43

Make sure you follow them, you

really want to see this.

2:56:432:56:48

STUDIO: Thank you, JJ. The machinery

is so impressive. We will keep an

2:56:482:56:52

eye on them.

To a rather more sedate form of

2:56:522:56:57

transport. Modern Railways.

2:56:572:57:02

-- model railways. There is

something magical about them. I have

2:57:032:57:07

control of the railway.

This is

always a mistake!

We have a scenario

2:57:072:57:14

unfolding, there is a hazard on the

line.

Help me, help me!

Disaster

2:57:142:57:22

averted, it is OK.

Oh!

Nice to see

you are taking it seriously.

2:57:222:57:29

Charlie, that was so bad of you.

2:57:292:57:32

Last summer, a team of 50 volunteer

model rail enthusiasts attempted

2:57:322:57:35

to conquer a challenge that had

defeated the greatest engineers

2:57:352:57:37

of the Victorian era -

building a railway 71 miles

2:57:372:57:40

across the Scottish highlands.

2:57:402:57:41

We'll talk to two of the people

behind the project in a moment

2:57:412:57:44

but first, here's a look

at their work in action.

2:57:442:57:47

Oh, whoa, steady.

2:57:472:57:48

We're going!

2:57:482:57:49

We're five days into

this epic project.

2:57:492:57:50

That is our track, boys and girls.

2:57:502:57:53

And we're already discovering...

2:57:532:57:55

I don't run!

2:57:552:57:56

I'm too old for this.

2:57:562:57:57

..Why the mighty

Victorians gave up...

2:57:572:58:00

On a trans-Caledonian railway.

2:58:002:58:03

This is actually a whole pile

of engineering work.

2:58:032:58:11

But keeping The Biggest Little

Railway running on schedule...

2:58:122:58:14

Our train's not going up the hill.

2:58:142:58:16

Is about to get...

2:58:162:58:17

Much harder.

2:58:172:58:18

I can't.

2:58:182:58:19

My left arm is going.

2:58:192:58:21

The rail is definitely

getting lower.

2:58:212:58:23

How are you feeling?

2:58:232:58:25

I think "wet" is quite understated.

2:58:252:58:26

Work faster,

work harder, sleep less.

2:58:262:58:29

This is a bit tricky.

2:58:292:58:30

None of them tell me

that they're nervous,

2:58:302:58:32

but it's quite obvious

that they are.

2:58:322:58:34

The train is not

travelling fast enough.

2:58:342:58:42

Claire Barratt was tasked

with working out the engineering

2:58:442:58:46

to make the giant little railway run

and Lawrence Robbins

2:58:462:58:48

was one of the volunteers

working on the project.

2:58:482:58:55

What an extraordinary idea. The

scalar bit is so fascinating. Silver

2:58:552:59:02

Lady, the locomotive which attempts

to do that journey, we will be

2:59:022:59:05

careful about what we say, is with

us. What a fantastic task.

2:59:052:59:11

Completely and utterly bonkers.

71

miles across all sorts of two rain.

2:59:112:59:16

We were not allowed to touch the

Touraine at all. The Nazis used open

2:59:162:59:20

of the two reigns of the railway

could go through, we were not

2:59:202:59:24

allowed to touch it. -- and navvies

used to open up the Touraine of the

2:59:242:59:32

railway. 56 volunteers were

involved.

How long did it take?

12

2:59:322:59:38

days.

We will not spoil it and say

how you did. What were the biggest

2:59:382:59:42

challenges apart from not being able

to touch the terrain?

I came from

2:59:422:59:50

the engineering side. The Silver

Lady is huge and model engineering

2:59:502:59:54

terms, but when you get into the

landscape, it is tiny. We built a

2:59:542:59:59

viaduct that in real life was 60

metres long, if you scale but it

2:59:593:00:03

becomes a mile. If you put a full

size engine on it would be a mile,

3:00:033:00:09

it is an epic task to ask a toy to

travel across the landscape like

3:00:093:00:13

that.

A train of this size, model

train, can't deal with slopes?

3:00:133:00:21

A train this site can't deal with

celebs.

It shouldn't.

3:00:213:00:29

-- it can't deal with celebs. -- my

team had to get the track down and

3:00:323:00:41

get that loco up for, and we had to

find ways and means of doing it.

3:00:413:00:49

What power is that locomotive?

That

is a real steam locomotive. It takes

3:00:493:00:54

Calor gas, water, boils it up, makes

real steam.

This morning, I was

3:00:543:00:58

joking with you that there was a

little person in their shovelling

3:00:583:01:01

cult Eksteen. I didn't know there

was real steam!

It was important to

3:01:013:01:07

have it as a steam engine, because

you get the warmth and that

3:01:073:01:11

heartbeat as it is moving along. And

when people see it, it just makes

3:01:113:01:16

people smile.

And it makes the

noise.

You can hear the chuffing

3:01:163:01:22

noise and the piston is going. It

sounds right, it smells right and

3:01:223:01:26

it's made in Britain.

Silver Lady is

the name of the engine itself. Why

3:01:263:01:32

choose this reticular route?

3:01:323:01:38

choose this reticular route?

The UK

had a fantastic network of railways.

3:01:383:01:42

It reached within 12 miles of pretty

much where anyone lived. But this

3:01:423:01:48

particular stretch never got built.

They tried to build it, but the

3:01:483:01:52

politics between rival railway

companies stopped it. So finally,

3:01:523:01:56

Dick Strawbridge had his dream and

decided we were going to complete

3:01:563:02:00

that little gap.

Great name. Also in

this programme, it brings about the

3:02:003:02:06

enthusiasm for this, but also

engineering. This is something we

3:02:063:02:11

talk about a lot on the sofa,

children perhaps not being inspired

3:02:113:02:15

by engineering at the moment or

seeing it as a career, particularly

3:02:153:02:19

women or girls.

I don't get that at

all. Engineering has been talking

3:02:193:02:25

about women in engineering for at

least 20 years. We are so ahead of

3:02:253:02:29

the game when other industries are

just waking up to it. And

3:02:293:02:32

engineering is such a broad field.

If you like skyscrapers, there is a

3:02:323:02:36

job for you. If you like tiny

models, the micro processing world

3:02:363:02:41

needs you. There is a place for you.

You have just got to find it.

So if

3:02:413:02:47

you are not a railway enthusiast,

and I hold my hand up, I am not...

I

3:02:473:02:53

came for the challenge, but I fell

in love with the train.

What would a

3:02:533:02:57

non-rail enthusiast get on this?

Firstly, the landscape in Scotland

3:02:573:03:03

is beautiful and the Loch Ness area

is stunning. Secondly, seeing people

3:03:033:03:07

come together from all walks of

life, men, women, the range was from

3:03:073:03:16

19 80. We didn't know each other

until we got together for the health

3:03:163:03:19

and safety briefing on the first

morning. By the end, we had the

3:03:193:03:24

teams bonded and working together.

At the end of the day, we were not

3:03:243:03:27

challenging each other. The only

challenge was to get the train

3:03:273:03:31

through and to get to Inverness.

Following the earlier the Roman on

3:03:313:03:36

the table here, it has ground to a

halt! There are no trains running

3:03:363:03:40

currently. Is it because the second

carriage has gone off the rails? I

3:03:403:03:45

think your loco is often very

slightly. This is a problem with

3:03:453:03:49

electricity. There we go.

3:03:493:03:56

electricity. There we go.

Are you

happy now?

Yes!

3:03:563:04:04

happy now?

Yes! I stopped it just in

time. As soon as you start playing

3:04:043:04:10

with these things... How heavy is

Silver Lady?

It is quite heavy and

3:04:103:04:17

be careful, because she is a working

model.

3:04:173:04:23

model.

It is quite heavy. It is a

proper piece of machinery.

It is

3:04:233:04:29

embarrassing how battered she is,

but she did it. You will see in

3:04:293:04:33

episode two, she really did

experience all the conditions.

Well,

3:04:333:04:37

we love your enthusiasm for the

project and thank you for bringing

3:04:373:04:40

everything in for us.

3:04:403:04:43

Episode two of The Biggest Little

Railway in the World

3:04:433:04:45

is on Channel 4 at 8pm this Sunday.

3:04:453:04:52

In a moment, we'll be speaking

to two vicars who are the subject

3:04:523:04:55

in a new documentary series.

3:04:553:04:56

But first, a last, brief

look at the headlines

3:04:563:04:58

where you are this morning.

3:04:583:06:32

Bye for now.

3:06:323:06:40

Welcome back. We are just keeping

you up-to-date with news of the fire

3:06:433:06:47

that has broken out at Nottingham

railway station. Reports from the

3:06:473:06:51

Nottinghamshire fire rescue say they

are dealing with what they describe

3:06:513:06:56

as a large incident, ten engines and

60 firefighters tackling displays.

3:06:563:06:59

These were the early stages at 6.30.

You can see the scale of the fire.

3:06:593:07:09

East Midlands Trains say all

services through the station are

3:07:093:07:13

cancelled. Disruptions are expected

throughout the day. Fire officers

3:07:133:07:16

have described this as a fully

developed fire and it has spread to

3:07:163:07:20

the roof of the building. We

understand there is a danger that it

3:07:203:07:25

has spread across the tracks. The

area has been cordoned off. If you

3:07:253:07:30

are playing is travelled to, from or

through Nottingham via rail, you

3:07:303:07:34

need to be on the East Midlands rail

website. It is not expected that any

3:07:343:07:41

trains will be coupling to or from

that station today. More news on the

3:07:413:07:44

News Channel.

3:07:443:07:46

From presiding over everything

from hatches, matches and despatches

3:07:463:07:49

vicars have for a long time been

an integral part of life

3:07:493:07:52

in countryside parishes.

3:07:523:07:57

With congregations in decline,

the men and women of the cloth have

3:07:573:08:00

had to adapt their Christian message

for the modern age.

3:08:003:08:02

Now a new documentary series focuses

on the challenges they face.

3:08:023:08:05

Let's take a look.

3:08:053:08:09

There is a competition within family

and friends over who can find me the

3:08:093:08:14

most religious tat. I have the

cheese grater, and this is classic,

3:08:143:08:23

this is an inflatable Jesus. A solar

panelled Pope Benedict and a solar

3:08:233:08:29

panel Jesus. I hope it doesn't cause

any offence to anyone, but they

3:08:293:08:33

jiggle and dance.

Member kids laugh

at you.

Matthew's wife Julie and

3:08:333:08:41

their two teenage sons are used to

his eccentricities.

He's become more

3:08:413:08:47

normal. Being with a Scouser for 20

years, it kind of rubs off. He is

3:08:473:08:54

approachable, compassionate and

passionate about his job.

3:08:543:08:56

Reverend Matthew Stafford joins us

with Reverend Ruth Hulse,

3:08:563:08:58

who also features in the series.

3:08:583:09:04

Are you in the business of

dispelling some myths here about

3:09:043:09:07

what you do?

I hope so. I hope we

are here to just portray vicars as

3:09:073:09:15

ordinary people. We have families,

lives and incredibly challenging and

3:09:153:09:21

privilege roles in the community.

But we are ordinary people. We are

3:09:213:09:25

not stuck inside the churches. We

want to be part of people's lives.

3:09:253:09:30

Do you think your role is as welcome

in society today as it once was?

3:09:303:09:34

Before, it was considered that the

Vicar of a parish was almost the

3:09:343:09:39

centrepoint, the person who drew the

community together. Now we have lots

3:09:393:09:43

of different religions, and we have

societies that don't interact as

3:09:433:09:46

closely with the church. It

3:09:463:09:52

closely with the church. It is not

second nature to congregate at the

3:09:573:09:59

church every week.

I think the place

of the priest is definitely

3:09:593:10:01

changing, but one of the great

privileges of our role is the fact

3:10:013:10:04

that we are there for people who,

regardless of whether they are

3:10:043:10:06

people of faith or people of none,

the church is there for them. And I

3:10:063:10:10

feel that I am trying to ensure that

I am there for people in all times

3:10:103:10:16

and all places.

It's a brave thing

to invite the cameras to follow you.

3:10:163:10:28

I am not sure what the access was

here, but it is a brave thing to do.

3:10:283:10:35

It's very brave.

Were there times

when you felt least comfortable

3:10:353:10:39

about your work being followed?

I

think it was the times when you have

3:10:393:10:43

to go into those deeply personal

places with people and you think,

3:10:433:10:47

how is this for them? We had agreed

to this, but it was for those people

3:10:473:10:53

that we were journeying alongside

and you think, how is this impacting

3:10:533:10:57

them?

Presumably, they were told as

well. You're going to say no, but

3:10:573:11:04

did it change the way you worked,

knowing you were being observed?

I

3:11:043:11:11

think it must have changed the

way... I think we can all say that

3:11:113:11:17

what we did, we did with integrity

and we would not have done those

3:11:173:11:20

things just for the cameras. We did

what we would do usually. But of

3:11:203:11:25

course, you are always aware of the

cameras. Especially at the

3:11:253:11:27

beginning.

In the series am one

thing that comes across is how you

3:11:273:11:34

are trying to be at the centre of

communities and you are being relied

upon by people going through

difficult times. We have a clip here

3:11:383:11:41

of you visiting Barbara in her final

days.

3:11:413:11:50

I have planned the funeral music,

3:11:533:12:01

the hymns. Hopefully, they are not

dreary ones.

Barbara has been at the

3:12:013:12:07

hospice for six months, and Ruth

spends time with her every week.

3:12:073:12:16

spends time with her every week.

Hi,

Barbara.

Hi, Ruth.

Today, she is

3:12:163:12:21

joined by Cheney Clark -- trainee

Clark.

He is your bag carrier!

3:12:213:12:37

Clark.

He is your bag carrier!

That

was joyous, you could see that Ruth

3:12:373:12:39

was enjoying her final days, but how

do you deal with something like

3:12:393:12:42

that? You are providing support for

those families and hopefully

3:12:423:12:45

bringing some piece. But how do you

personally deal with it?

It is hard

3:12:453:12:52

and it is something we have to be

careful of. Barbara was a part of

3:12:523:12:59

the church and she was very precious

to us. And to see a decline like

3:12:593:13:03

that was hard. So like them, we talk

to other people and get support. We

3:13:033:13:07

also hold on to the hope that her

faith gave her in those last days

3:13:073:13:14

and we try to hold onto that

ourselves.

Thank you both very much.
