Hello - this is Breakfast,

with Naga Munchetty and Charlie

0:00:080:00:11

Stayt.

0:00:110:00:11

17 people are killed

in a mass shooting at a high

0:00:110:00:14

school in Florida.

0:00:140:00:17

Children ran from their

classrooms as the gunman

0:00:170:00:19

attacked - police have arrested

a 19-year-old former student

0:00:190:00:21

who'd been expelled.

0:00:210:00:29

It's just terrifying. Terrifying to

the parents, terrifying to the kids.

0:00:290:00:34

Very emotional.

0:00:340:00:39

Good morning - it's Thursday

the 15th of February.

0:00:400:00:43

Also this morning:

0:00:430:00:49

South Africa's President,

Jacob Zuma, resigns after his ANC

0:00:490:00:52

party threatend to force

a no-confidence vote over corruption

0:00:520:00:54

allegations - his successor

could be sworn in tomorrow.

0:00:540:01:02

A fresh warning about the dangers

of ultra-processed food -

0:01:030:01:06

researchers say the more people eat,

the higher their cancer risk.

0:01:060:01:09

What are children spending

their pocket money on?

0:01:090:01:11

New figures suggest it's

makeup and computer games.

0:01:110:01:13

But are they facing more

pressure than ever to spend?

0:01:130:01:16

I'll look at the numbers.

0:01:160:01:21

It is nearly there. Our first medal

from Britain is within touching

0:01:220:01:26

distance. Don Parsons is a split

second outside the medals in fourth

0:01:260:01:32

in the halfway stage of the men's

skeleton that we will have to wait

0:01:320:01:36

till tonight.

0:01:360:01:39

Mat with the weather. A few showers

around again producing snow across

0:01:390:01:43

the north and the West of the UK.

Details on that and a full run-up in

0:01:430:01:48

15 minutes.

0:01:480:01:54

Good morning.

0:01:540:01:55

First, our main story.

0:01:550:01:56

At least 17 people including

children and adults have been killed

0:01:560:01:59

after a gun attack at

a high school in Florida.

0:01:590:02:02

Several other people

are being treated in hospital.

0:02:020:02:04

Shortly after the shootings,

Police arrested a 19-year-old

0:02:040:02:06

former pupil who'd been

expelled from the school

0:02:060:02:08

in Parkland, around 50

miles north of Miami.

0:02:080:02:10

From there, Nada Tawfik reports.

0:02:100:02:16

This was supposed to be one of the

safest communities in the country.

0:02:160:02:20

In an instant, these students became

helpless targets, sheltering in

0:02:200:02:25

place and fearing for their lives.

Officials now suggest this was a

0:02:250:02:30

well-planned pot -- plot to maximise

the loss of life. Just moments

0:02:300:02:34

before the end of the school day, a

former student reportedly pulled the

0:02:340:02:39

fire alarm at Marjory Stoneman

Douglas hi Scholl to draw out his

0:02:390:02:43

unsuspecting victims. There had been

a deal earlier in the day but

0:02:430:02:49

confused teachers began to exit the

building.

Kids were evacuating. I

0:02:490:02:53

was like, that's not a drill. We

never get a drill like that. He

0:02:530:02:59

started to back away towards the

middle school and I knew it was more

0:02:590:03:04

than a drill because we've never

done that.

Armed with an 15

0:03:040:03:08

semiautomatic rifle, he began firing

outside then continued inside the

0:03:080:03:13

school as panic and chaos erupted.

Police were warning the shooter was

0:03:130:03:18

still at large, even as emergency

workers rushed to treat those

0:03:180:03:22

wounded. SWAT teams evacuated

distressed students. In a row,

0:03:220:03:27

someone hands in the hour, others

clinging to each other for support,

0:03:270:03:31

they frantically rushed to safety. I

see you! Parents sick with worry

0:03:310:03:37

waited for news. The suspect was

arrested without incident an hour

0:03:370:03:42

later in the neighbouring city.

Police identified him as Nikolas

0:03:420:03:46

Cruz, who had been expelled.

He was

taken into custody I believe about

0:03:460:03:51

an hour after he left Marjory

Stoneman Douglas, after he committed

0:03:510:03:55

this horrific homicidal detestable

act.

This is the 18th school

0:03:550:04:00

shooting in the United States this

year. It's a uniquely American

0:04:000:04:03

epidemic that has only gotten worse.

Yet this country is more divided

0:04:030:04:08

than ever on how to solve the

problem.

0:04:080:04:16

I can only imagine this is a

community in absolute shock.

0:04:160:04:22

Absolutely. I think as the news of

this spread around the nation, many

0:04:220:04:27

asked, how is this happening again?

For people here in Parkland,

0:04:270:04:35

Florida, so many thought this would

not happen. This is a safe and gated

0:04:350:04:42

community with palm trees. Everyone

spoke about how loving the community

0:04:420:04:46

is. There was shocked that something

like this, which is so prevalent

0:04:460:04:50

around the rest of the country,

still shocked it could happen here.

0:04:500:04:54

In a press conference by several of

the officials as they gave an update

0:04:540:04:59

on the status of the 17 victims, and

try to identify each one, they

0:04:590:05:04

really said that this will take time

as a community to heal but they are

0:05:040:05:09

dedicated to making sure that they

have those who are coming to this

0:05:090:05:13

high school and in the rest of the

school system confident that they

0:05:130:05:17

can be safe when they go to school

but still, that is a question that

0:05:170:05:21

the rest of the United States will

have to grapple with and one that

0:05:210:05:25

President Trump mentioned briefly

because he said no child, no teacher

0:05:250:05:28

or anyone else should feel unsafe in

an American school and it is the

0:05:280:05:33

reality in America now that that is

something that politicians are going

0:05:330:05:37

to have to get a grip on.

Thank you

very much for reporting price

0:05:370:05:42

outside that school in Parkland,

Florida. -- reporting for us.

0:05:420:05:48

Jacob Zuma has resigned as President

of South Africa after nine

0:05:480:05:51

years in power.

0:05:510:05:52

His time in office has been marred

by allegations of corruption

0:05:520:05:55

and his own party, the ANC had

threatened to force him out

0:05:550:05:58

with a vote of no confidence.

0:05:580:05:59

Our reporter Pumza Fihlani

is in Johannesburg.

0:05:590:06:05

Pumza, take us through where we are

this morning. We will know that

0:06:050:06:10

President Jacob Zuma bowed out at

the last minute last night,

0:06:100:06:14

eventually giving in that

resignation that the ANC had been

0:06:140:06:17

calling for. The process in

Parliament begins. The African

0:06:170:06:21

National Congress want to elect a

new president, somebody who would be

0:06:210:06:25

sworn in today and becomes the

country's next president until

0:06:250:06:30

elections in 2019. The name they

want to put forward is the new ANC

0:06:300:06:36

leader Cyril Ramaphosa, the man

responsible for those negotiations

0:06:360:06:39

to get him out of office.

Pumza

Fihlani, thank you very much.

0:06:390:06:44

There could be a link between a diet

of ultra processed foods and cancer,

0:06:440:06:48

that's according to

researchers in France.

0:06:480:06:50

The study of more than

100,000 people suggests

0:06:500:06:52

that those who ate more of products

such as fizzy drinks,

0:06:520:06:55

mass-produced bread and processed

meats, had the highest

0:06:550:06:57

rates of cancer.

0:06:570:06:58

Here's our Health and Science

correspondent James Gallagher.

0:06:580:07:04

Ultra- processed foods include

cakes, chocolate, mass-produced

0:07:040:07:08

bread, crisps and pizza. It's

delicious temptation and too much is

0:07:080:07:13

bad for the waistline. We know being

overweight increases the risk of

0:07:130:07:18

cancer but is there something else

about these foods that raises the

0:07:180:07:22

risk even further? The study

followed 105,000 French people for

0:07:220:07:27

five years. It suggests increasingly

an ounce of our diet that our ultra-

0:07:270:07:34

processed by 10% is linked to a 12%

increase in the risk of cancer but

0:07:340:07:39

even the researchers say more work

is needed to establish why such

0:07:390:07:42

foods may increase cancer risk. So

what should we do?

A balanced diet

0:07:420:07:48

is actually even more importantly is

maintaining a healthy weight and if

0:07:480:07:52

we each to many ultra- processed

foods than we do pylon the powers

0:07:520:07:55

and although this study didn't look

closely at way and we know very

0:07:550:07:59

clearly what the links are with that

and cancer so I think it's

0:07:590:08:07

and cancer so I think it's a warning

to us to have a healthy diet and be

0:08:120:08:16

aware of the links between our diet

and cancer.

Other experts said the

0:08:160:08:19

term of the processed food was so

broad, it's hard to know what's

0:08:190:08:23

really going on and to that other

unhealthy habits could be muddying

0:08:230:08:26

the waters. It is why the study is

being described as an initial

0:08:260:08:29

insight rather than definitive proof

on the role of ultra- processed

0:08:290:08:32

foods and cancer.

0:08:320:08:34

The government has publicly blamed

Russian military intelligence

0:08:340:08:36

for a cyber attack last year,

which affected businesses

0:08:360:08:38

around the world.

0:08:380:08:39

The Defence Secretary,

Gavin Williamson, said Russia

0:08:390:08:41

was "ripping up the rule book

by undermining democracy

0:08:410:08:43

and weaponising information".

0:08:430:08:44

Russia has denied

responsibility for the attack.

0:08:440:08:48

Dubious financial advisors exploited

former steel workers in a pensions

0:08:480:08:51

mis-selling scandal

according to MPs.

0:08:510:08:52

The Work and Pensions Select

Committee says it cost

0:08:520:08:54

the people involved thousands

and the Financial Conduct Authority

0:08:540:08:57

did too little to protect

them after the closure

0:08:570:08:59

of the British Steel Pension Scheme.

0:08:590:09:05

Differences in life expectancy

between the richest and poorest

0:09:050:09:07

neighbourhoods have widened

according to a new report.

0:09:070:09:14

The Longevity Science Panel found

that, a boy born in one

0:09:140:09:17

of the most affluent areas

will outlive one born in one

0:09:170:09:20

of the poorest by nearly

eight and a half years.

0:09:200:09:22

Some of the least affluent areas

are in the North West of England,

0:09:220:09:26

including Blackpool and Knowsley.

0:09:260:09:27

Some of the wealthiest

are in the South East.

0:09:270:09:34

Now, have you ever seen a baby

and said, "Oh they're so cute,

0:09:340:09:37

"I could eat them up."

0:09:370:09:39

Me neither.

0:09:390:09:42

Well, here are some that

you could actually eat.

0:09:420:09:49

That's needed a freaky alerts. --

alert.

0:09:490:09:56

An amateur baker has created

life-size cake versions

0:09:560:09:59

of her twin daughters

to celebrate their first birthday.

0:09:590:10:07

Can we see some more about? I am we

can. -- some more of that?

0:10:070:10:14

Lara Mason spent more than 100 hours

crafting the edible version

0:10:140:10:17

of her daughters Lily and Lyla.

0:10:170:10:19

What I'm worried about is what

happens when you cut them open.

A

0:10:190:10:28

lot of people like myself feel bad

enough about biting the head of the

0:10:280:10:33

gingerbread man.

That kind of thing

doesn't trouble me in the least. If

0:10:330:10:38

the cake is nice, the cake is nice.

Good morning to you. What have you

0:10:380:10:46

got Rose?

We are going to be waiting

to this first medal.

Don Parsons is

0:10:460:10:56

within touching distance. We've got

to wait until tonight to see whether

0:10:560:11:00

he can complete the job.

0:11:000:11:03

Dom Parsons has put himself

in a touching distance of Britain's

0:11:030:11:06

first medal at the Winter Olympics

in the men's Skelton.

0:11:060:11:08

At the half way stage

of the competition in PyeongChang

0:11:080:11:11

the Brit lies in fourth place.

0:11:110:11:17

0.03 of a second outside the medals.

0:11:170:11:18

Teammate Jerry Rice

is back in 12th place.

0:11:180:11:26

There has been disappointment for

the curlers, who lost to the United

0:11:270:11:31

States. It is China up next to Great

Britain later this morning.

0:11:310:11:37

Away from PyeongChang,

it was another night to remember

0:11:370:11:43

in the Champions League

for English football.

0:11:430:11:44

A hat-trick from Sadio Marney,

helped Liverpool thrash Portuguese

0:11:440:11:47

side Porto 5-0.

0:11:470:11:48

And British number one

Johanna Konta is into the last 16

0:11:480:11:53

of the Qatar Open, thanks to victory

over Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro

0:11:530:11:56

in Doha.

0:11:560:12:00

I will stick around for the papers

but we have got some weather.

Yes,

0:12:000:12:05

we have. You do it.

You never get to

talk to matter.

Good morning, Matt.

0:12:050:12:12

We often see each other out and

about on trains.

We have spent many

0:12:120:12:18

times together.

We know each other

well. This is nice.

They have bonded

0:12:180:12:22

already.

Cut out the middle people.

Don't go too far, what about the

0:12:220:12:29

weather, Matt?

0:12:290:12:30

Still a few showers are no showers

wintry and places. Over the hills of

0:12:360:12:40

Scotland and Northern Ireland. The

show you where the showers have

0:12:400:12:45

been. The bulk of the showers

further north, easing a bit in

0:12:450:12:50

north-east England over the next few

hours. Show does this -- -- snow

0:12:500:12:57

showers across western Scotland. In

between, lots of sunshine,

0:12:570:13:03

particularly the further south and

east you are. Many may just get away

0:13:030:13:08

with a dry day. One or two showers,

by and large. Still a few rain

0:13:080:13:12

showers towards the south-west. One

or two mixed in with the rain

0:13:120:13:17

showers. Still, a few snow flurries.

It is to the west of Northern

0:13:170:13:22

Ireland and the Highlands of

Scotland where we like to see most

0:13:220:13:26

of the showers and as I said, up to

ten centimetres, maybe even a bit

0:13:260:13:29

more possible over the higher

ground. Strong winds as well. Quite

0:13:290:13:32

a blustery day. Still sub only the

mountains. With some sunshine in the

0:13:320:13:41

south, ten, 11 degrees is certainly

possible. To take us into tonight,

0:13:410:13:46

we will see the showers continue

across the north and west of the

0:13:460:13:50

country, becoming fewer in number

further south you are. The chance of

0:13:500:13:53

some frost and ice to take us into

Friday morning. For many, it will be

0:13:530:13:58

a bright enough start. Still a lot

of snow continuing to fall. Prudden

0:13:580:14:03

eyed, if you have clear skies in

Scotland, you could see the all. The

0:14:030:14:09

green, slimmer chance. But still

possible across some parts of

0:14:090:14:15

Scotland and Northern Ireland. We

have the showers continuing across

0:14:150:14:18

the north and west of the country.

Much of England and Wales, a dry

0:14:180:14:26

day. Cladding over a little bit from

the West during the afternoon. Up to

0:14:260:14:31

ten or 11 degrees. Into the weekend,

a quick look at what we've got. A

0:14:310:14:37

touch of frost around Saturday

morning. Brightening up after a

0:14:370:14:41

cloudy start in Scotland. Northern

Ireland, southern Scotland and

0:14:410:14:45

England, generally fairly cloudy.

Not as much in the way of wintry

0:14:450:14:50

weather as temperatures continue to

rise. Into Sunday, just a bit of

0:14:500:14:57

caution. This weather system coming

in with a bit of uncertainty. At the

0:14:570:15:02

moment, it looks like there will be

a spell of cloud and outbreaks of

0:15:020:15:07

rain. Dry of the Scotland and

Northern Ireland. That will keep you

0:15:070:15:12

updated. Temperatures up on what we

have seen through this week.

0:15:120:15:22

Let's have a look through the papers

with Ben and Mike. Front pages first

0:15:220:15:27

and a story about...

The front page

of the Metro son, saying that

0:15:270:15:34

Corbyn... Saying Jerry, Jeremy

Corbyn met a commonest spy at the

0:15:340:15:40

height of the war and warned him

about clampdown is on British

0:15:400:15:44

intelligence. A spokesman has said

he was an agent, asset or informant

0:15:440:15:49

for any intelligence agency is false

and a ridiculous smear. It goes on

0:15:490:15:53

to say he met diplomats from many

other countries.

The Daily Mail

0:15:530:15:59

story here, processed foods driving

up rates of cancer, this is what

0:15:590:16:03

they are calling ultra- processed

foods. Any project, product

0:16:030:16:08

involving an industrial process is

making up half of our diet that any

0:16:080:16:15

product. A variety of stories on the

front pages this morning.

-- any

0:16:150:16:20

product. It has revealed 4700 people

have died in England in the last ten

0:16:200:16:26

years while waiting for an organ

donor. This four-year-old girl

0:16:260:16:30

pictured in here is one of those who

died waiting. It says this could be

0:16:300:16:37

avoided, the Mirror is campaigning

to persuade MPs to change the law to

0:16:370:16:41

save hundreds.

Ben, we're often told

to get youngsters involved in money

0:16:410:16:46

issues earlier, aren't we?

It's a

real obsession of mine, financial

0:16:460:16:50

education for young people because

we spend a lot of time doing

0:16:500:16:55

decisions in school but the biggest

decisions in your life are your

0:16:550:16:59

mortgage, savings, job, where to put

your money so there's a story in the

0:16:590:17:03

paper saying children as young as

six should get a bank card, this is

0:17:030:17:07

a prepaid debit card, not a credit

card, number of companies have

0:17:070:17:11

launched them and the idea is

parents can put their pocket money

0:17:110:17:14

on these cards and children learn

how to spend it.

They can do it on

0:17:140:17:20

the Internet or in shops. It's part

of the idea kids can learn to save,

0:17:200:17:24

know when to spend and learn the

value of money but some suggesting

0:17:240:17:27

that maybe six is a little early

because there might be limited

0:17:270:17:30

opportunities for them to spend it.

Six years old, can you imagine what

0:17:300:17:34

they would spend their money on?

The

picture I have got is a six-year-old

0:17:340:17:38

walking around with a bank card...

They would, wouldn't be? They would

0:17:380:17:44

hold it up and that makes them a

target.

No more so than having cash.

0:17:440:17:49

It does.

It isn't like you can rack

up thousands on it, it's all about

0:17:490:17:56

what you put on it, but the parents

through an app can block the card if

0:17:560:18:02

they want if it goes missing or

something.

What do you think, Mike?

0:18:020:18:07

When kids were younger they had the

plastic toy cards they could play

0:18:070:18:10

with.

They're just taking it a step

further.

They are. It is probably

0:18:100:18:16

easier to carry around than a piggy

bank. Lots of coins in a pig! At the

0:18:160:18:22

Winter Olympics, if they wanted to

make a sequel to Cool Runnings,

0:18:220:18:26

about the Jamaican bobsled team,

they they have the plot happening

0:18:260:18:32

the next few days. The women are

competing over the next few days,

0:18:320:18:36

their coach, a German competitor,

she has quit and the trouble is,

0:18:360:18:42

this is over a disagreement with the

rest of the team over her role, she

0:18:420:18:46

owns the sled and suggestion is she

might take it home with her. It's my

0:18:460:18:50

ball!

You can't play with my ball.

I

don't know whether she will because

0:18:500:18:56

she is close to the team. But she

might take the sled away but

0:18:560:19:00

hopefully there will be a happy

ending on that. Final word on the

0:19:000:19:06

suits, the British sliders' suits,

the aerodynamic lycra, it has been

0:19:060:19:13

announced completely legitimate by

the governing body but the rivals

0:19:130:19:16

and opponents are still moaning. It

could be a clever move by the

0:19:160:19:21

British team, getting the other

teams focusing on the kit rather

0:19:210:19:24

than being fastest.

It happened with

the rugby when they wore the tight

0:19:240:19:29

T-shirts and everyone moaned.

If you

can get inside the mind of your

0:19:290:19:33

opponents, district them then it can

work.

We will hear from Amy Williams

0:19:330:19:39

and sherry Alcott later in the

programme -- distract.

This is about

0:19:390:19:44

money again but how much do you

think you need to earn on average to

0:19:440:19:49

be happy? This is a study that

suggests £43,000 a year as a joint

0:19:490:19:57

income will make you are emotionally

happen but if you start earning more

0:19:570:20:02

than £68,000 it isn't good news. The

debate is how much do you need to

0:20:020:20:06

earn to be happy and content and

live where? That's the debate.

If

0:20:060:20:13

you had a joint income like that in

many cities, to try to get on the

0:20:130:20:18

property ladder, you won't be able

to.

What is the average wage,

0:20:180:20:24

£26,000?

£27,000, it has just gone

up. There's room to grow but

0:20:240:20:29

interesting, win you talk about

this, average wages finally starting

0:20:290:20:33

to go up -- when you talk. Employers

haven't felt the pressure to put

0:20:330:20:39

wages up, given the inflation rate

is high, wages starting to go up

0:20:390:20:45

with the employment market doing

well. Some way to go before £43,000

0:20:450:20:50

but anyway. I think my button just

came under an!

Flashing very early!

0:20:500:20:55

Thanks, Mike!

0:20:550:20:58

An inquest is to be opened

into the death of a young woman

0:20:580:21:02

with learning disabilities after BBC

Breakfast raised concerns

0:21:020:21:04

about her care.

0:21:040:21:05

Laura Booth died four weeks

after going in to hospital

0:21:050:21:07

for a routine operation.

0:21:070:21:10

The news comes as Mencap

and the Royal College of Nursing

0:21:100:21:13

call for compulsory learning

disability training for all NHS

0:21:130:21:16

staff in England.

0:21:160:21:16

Breakfast's Jayne McCubbin reports.

0:21:160:21:23

The house is the same as the day

Laura left. Her Tories aren't

0:21:230:21:29

touched.

We can't move them. We just

can't.

-- her Tories.

We do miss her

0:21:290:21:37

because she was our sunshine always

-- her Tories.

We went into the

0:21:370:21:43

hospital with our daughter for an

eye operation and and we came out

0:21:430:21:50

with a death certificate.

In

September, 2016 their daughter went

0:21:500:21:53

to the Royal Hallamshire hospital in

Sheffield for a routine operation.

0:21:530:21:57

She was 21. Over the following four

weeks Laura's health deteriorated.

0:21:570:22:02

She wasn't eating and was taking

only fluids. The family say they

0:22:020:22:06

repeatedly asked the hospital to the

Vlore intravenously with what is

0:22:060:22:11

called a TPN.

We kept saying to

them, when you going to sort

0:22:110:22:15

something, when are you going to do

something? This is not right, she

0:22:150:22:19

can't stay like this.

On the day

Laura died at the TPN came but it

0:22:190:22:25

was too late.

Her death was put down

to natural causes, but we've spoken

0:22:250:22:30

to an independent expert who has

concerns. He believes in

0:22:300:22:34

malnutrition may have contributed to

Laura's death, concerns we've shared

0:22:340:22:38

with the coroner, who has come in

the last 24 hours, ordered an

0:22:380:22:43

inquest. The hospital say that we

are so very sorry that some aspects

0:22:430:22:48

of Laura's care were not of the

standard we would normally expect,

0:22:480:22:51

and they say that Laura was being

given nutrients in liquid form and

0:22:510:22:57

that was constantly being reviewed,

that Laura's condition was so

0:22:570:23:00

complex it did have an impact on the

way in which she was fed. In a

0:23:000:23:05

letter to the family after Laura's

death, the hospital said services

0:23:050:23:11

are not primarily design for these

kinds of patients.

0:23:110:23:19

kinds of patients.

We're not dealing

with people like Laura, we're not

0:23:190:23:22

used to them sort of people coming

over here. When they said that, I

0:23:220:23:26

felt horrible. This is not right.

Today, the hospital told us they had

0:23:260:23:35

already made changes. More

specialist nurses, better trained

0:23:350:23:41

staff, but Mencap, backed by the

Royal College of Nursing is calling

0:23:410:23:44

for mandate to read learning

disability training for all NHS

0:23:440:23:47

staff. Training like this taking

place in guys hospital with the help

0:23:470:23:53

of Lloyd to better meet the needs of

this community, to cut the number of

0:23:530:23:59

premature avoidable deaths.

We also

want to have the right equal

0:23:590:24:02

healthcare treatment that we've

thoroughly deserve and there should

0:24:020:24:10

be no discrimination or sidelining

at all.

Neither NHS England or the

0:24:100:24:13

Department of Health would respond

to these specific call for mandatory

0:24:130:24:18

training, both had said they made

learning disability is a national

0:24:180:24:22

priority and would continue to

improve training. Laura's parents

0:24:220:24:26

felt their girl's life wasn't valued

equally.

What they see is the person

0:24:260:24:31

that's in that bed with all the

disabilities, she can't talk, she

0:24:310:24:35

can't walk, this that and the

other... What they didn't see at the

0:24:350:24:39

back was that lovely girl that we

knew what was so happy, like going

0:24:390:24:44

out shopping, loved going and

getting handbags. That's what they

0:24:440:24:50

didn't see, they just saw her

disability.

0:24:500:24:53

Jayne is with us.

0:24:530:24:58

So hearing from Patricia and ten

asking the questions you would ask

0:24:580:25:01

in those circumstances -- and Ken.

There's been news that there will be

0:25:010:25:07

an inquest?

There will be. We share

these concerns that were raised with

0:25:070:25:11

the coroner yesterday about noon and

within two hours his office

0:25:110:25:15

contacted the family to say there

will be an inquest and it will take

0:25:150:25:19

place on Tuesday -- we shared. The

family are delighted... That's the

0:25:190:25:23

wrong word, but they want scrutiny,

this is absolutely what they want.

0:25:230:25:27

Why wasn't there scrutiny in the

first place? Because the coroner was

0:25:270:25:31

told Laura's death was down to

natural causes. It would be wrong

0:25:310:25:35

for us to pre-empt, we can't

possibly pre-empt the inquest that

0:25:350:25:38

is about to come, but we know too

many learning disability deaths are

0:25:380:25:42

put down to natural causes. We do

know that in one hospital trust

0:25:420:25:47

because of the Southern health

review that 1% of learning

0:25:470:25:52

disability deaths were properly

investigated. This is a problem.

0:25:520:25:54

This is why in a couple of hours in

London, Mencap, together with the

0:25:540:25:59

Royal College of Nursing are going

to be making this three-year call

0:25:590:26:03

for action. Nobody should work in

the NHS if they haven't had this

0:26:030:26:08

mandate to read training, very basic

training in learning disability

0:26:080:26:13

people and the healthcare they need.

We will leave it there for now,

0:26:130:26:17

Jayne, thank you.

0:26:170:26:20

You're watching Breakfast.

0:26:200:26:21

Still to come:

0:26:210:26:22

Once branded

a totem and a piece

0:26:220:26:24

of bad engineering,

0:26:240:26:25

the Angel of the North has been

0:26:250:26:27

watching over Gateshead for 20

years.

0:26:270:26:28

We'll look at how the sculpture

has gone on to become

0:26:280:26:31

one of Britain's best loved and most

recognised pieces of art.

0:26:310:26:38

Time now to get the news,

travel and weather where you are.

0:26:380:26:39

with perhaps some outbreaks of light

rain and drizzle, so milder

0:29:580:30:00

temperatures as we move through the

next few days and into the weekend.

0:30:000:30:04

I'm back with the latest

from the BBC London newsroom

0:30:040:30:07

in half an hour.

0:30:070:30:08

Now, though, it's back

to Charlie and Naga.

0:30:080:30:10

Bye for now.

0:30:100:30:16

Hello - this is Breakfast

with Naga Munchetty and Charlie

0:30:160:30:18

Stayt.

0:30:180:30:19

Coming up this morning.

0:30:190:30:21

As the Oxfam aid worker

sex scandal continues,

0:30:210:30:23

we'll ask whether it will shake

public confidence in giving

0:30:230:30:25

money to charity.

0:30:250:30:33

Antimo Magnotta

0:30:330:30:34

was the pianist on board

the Costa Concordia cruise ship

0:30:340:30:36

which sank six years ago.

0:30:360:30:38

He'll tell us how that tragic night

shaped the sound of his music.

0:30:380:30:45

What do your kids spend

their pocket money?

0:30:450:30:47

From tech to trainers,

they spend more than 1 thousand

0:30:470:30:53

-- £1,000 a year each.

0:30:530:30:55

We'll get some top tips

on how they can be savvy

0:30:550:30:58

with their savings.

0:30:580:30:58

Here's a summary of today's main

stories from BBC News.

0:30:580:31:04

At least 17 people including

children and teachers have been

0:31:040:31:07

killed after a gun attack

at a high school in Florida.

0:31:070:31:10

Several other people

are being treated in hospital.

0:31:100:31:12

Shortly after the shootings,

police arrested a 19-year-old

0:31:120:31:14

former pupil who'd been

expelled from the school

0:31:140:31:16

in Parkland, around 50

miles north of Miami.

0:31:160:31:22

Jacob Zuma has resigned as president

of South Africa after nine years in

0:31:220:31:27

power. His timing of this has been

marked by allegations of corruption

0:31:270:31:31

and his own party, the ANC, had

threatened to ball falls in vote of

0:31:310:31:36

no-confidence. In a statement he

said he was quitting with immediate

0:31:360:31:40

effect and he disagreed with his ANC

party party's decision.

0:31:400:31:45

The consumption of highly-processed

foods, including cakes,

0:31:450:31:48

chicken nuggets and mass-produced

bread is linked to the risk

0:31:480:31:51

of cancer, according

to researchers in France.

0:31:510:31:53

The study of more than 100,000

people is published

0:31:530:31:56

in the British Medical Journal.

0:31:560:31:57

Experts have expressed caution,

but continue to advise eating

0:31:570:32:00

a health balanced diet.

0:32:000:32:01

-- healthy.

0:32:010:32:03

The government has publicly blamed

Russian military intelligence

0:32:030:32:05

for a cyber attack last year,

which affected businesses

0:32:050:32:07

around the world.

0:32:070:32:08

The Defence Secretary,

Gavin Williamson, said Russia

0:32:080:32:10

was "ripping up the rule book

by undermining democracy

0:32:100:32:13

and weaponising information".

0:32:130:32:13

Russia has denied

responsibility for the attack.

0:32:130:32:21

Financial advisers exploited

steelworkers, according to impaired

0:32:280:32:30

Financial advisers exploited

steelworkers, according to impaired

0:32:300:32:30

-- MPs. It cost the people involved

thousands of pounds and Financial

0:32:300:32:36

Conduct Authority did too little

little to break -- to protect after

0:32:360:32:40

the closure of the British steel

pension scheme.

0:32:400:32:44

Differences in life expectancy

between the richest and poorest

0:32:440:32:46

neighbourhoods have widened

according to a new report.

0:32:460:32:49

The Longevity Science Panel found

that a boy born in one

0:32:490:32:52

of the most affluent areas such

as St Albans will outlive one born

0:32:520:32:55

in one of the poorest places

which include Knowlsey and Blackpool

0:32:550:32:58

by nearly 8.5 years.

0:32:580:33:04

The consumers Association says

faulty household appliances are

0:33:040:33:08

causing 60 fires a week in the UK

and says a third of the blazes are

0:33:080:33:13

started by washing machines and

tumble dryers. It is written to

0:33:130:33:17

ministers to give them 90 days to

address the issue.

0:33:170:33:24

Mike has got the support. So many

are asking me, when will the first

0:33:240:33:28

medal come for us? We won't have to

wait too much longer. The Dan slalom

0:33:280:33:34

tomorrow but Don Parsons, he is

within touching distance in the

0:33:340:33:39

skeleton. -- the downhill slalom. He

is so close to getting a medal. That

0:33:390:33:47

is look at how he slid his way into

medal contention.

0:33:470:33:55

Look closely. Everybody else is. At

the second skin on a suburban --

0:33:550:34:00

skeleton. The suits have come under

scrutiny. Whether they give an

0:34:000:34:04

advantage not, worn by Don Parsons,

it is a good fit. The halfway mark

0:34:040:34:09

in lies within touching distance

after two impressive performances.

0:34:090:34:13

Hopefully I can sleep tonight. The

last four years has just been

0:34:130:34:19

working to this one moments I'm

going to make the most of it.

He

0:34:190:34:24

would do well to catch the South

Korean ironman, Yun. He is doing

0:34:240:34:31

well on a track that looks

tailor-made for the Koreans. The

0:34:310:34:34

showpiece is the men's downhill on

the slopes, the equivalent of the

0:34:340:34:38

100m final. All or nothing. The

Norwegian Syndal will take home a

0:34:380:34:46

shiny gold medal this time.

Magnificent, and the Vikings are

0:34:460:34:52

celebrating. He has flown a fighter

jet and given a jet car. His need

0:34:520:34:57

for speed has been quenched the now.

Michaela Schiffrin delivered, with a

0:34:570:35:07

second gold at the age of 22.

Britain's Alex Tilley also letter of

0:35:070:35:15

the big debut slip by. Crashes are

common in the snowboard cross wacky

0:35:150:35:19

races on snow. Defending champion PA

Voltier avoided the dust of the

0:35:190:35:30

antics and nobody could catch on.

Slightly more sedate at the curling.

0:35:300:35:34

No less tense. As Britain lost for

the first time in PyeongChang to the

0:35:340:35:41

USA.

0:35:410:35:46

USA. Curling, the men leading Japan

at the moment.

0:35:460:35:49

Away from Pyeongchang,

there was another hugely impressive

0:35:490:35:51

performance from an English side

in the Champions League.

0:35:510:35:53

It was Liverpool's first game

in the knock-out stages for nine

0:35:530:35:56

years and they marked

the occasion in style.

0:35:560:35:59

A hat-trick from Sadio Mane helped

them to a 5-0 away win

0:35:590:36:02

against Portuguese side Porto.

0:36:020:36:10

That is a very good one. Exactly as

good as necessary so at the end, it

0:36:130:36:19

was a high result but I think

everybody saw in the game and all

0:36:190:36:24

the moments where we weren't as

compact. They had their moments, we

0:36:240:36:29

scored in the right moment.

0:36:290:36:35

And Joanna Konta has made it through

to the last 16 in Qatar. She had a

0:36:350:36:42

good win, getting past the world

number 29 and she now faces

0:36:420:36:47

Angelique Kerber for a place in the

quarterfinals.

0:36:470:36:54

Budding sports photographers, take

note. It can be quite hazardous.

0:36:590:37:07

note. It can be quite hazardous. As

Switzerland's Lara Gut, wiped out,

0:37:070:37:11

so she sends the photographers

flying for cover. Another guy in the

0:37:110:37:15

middle, he is very agile. No one was

injured.

We saw that a couple of

0:37:150:37:23

days ago.

They have to be alert

which is quite hard when you are

0:37:230:37:27

looking down the lens.

The one guy

there had tactics. The kind of

0:37:270:37:33

leptin front.

He could be an ice

dancer.

Interesting knowing that

0:37:330:37:39

they know how to crash and how to

fall. The skiers. As they are

0:37:390:37:45

sliding down, they are looking to

see whether they are going.

It's a

0:37:450:37:49

very important part of all those

winter sports, learning how to fall

0:37:490:37:54

properly. Look at the snowboarders.

The other one that gets me is the

0:37:540:38:00

double luge when they are lying on

each other. Incredible.

0:38:000:38:05

Talks aimed at restoring power

sharing to Northern Ireland's

0:38:050:38:07

devolved government have

broken down according

0:38:070:38:09

to the Democratic Unionist Party

leader, Arlene Foster.

0:38:090:38:11

to the Democratic

Unionist Party leader,

0:38:110:38:13

She says the key sticking

point is the demand to give

0:38:130:38:16

the Irish language official status.

0:38:160:38:17

Sinn Fein have accused the DUP

of collapsing the process.

0:38:170:38:20

This is what people from all sides

of the political spectrum in Belfast

0:38:200:38:23

made of the news.

0:38:230:38:29

I think it's a big disappointment

and I'd just wish she could get over

0:38:290:38:38

the line and get things up and

running.

Sometimes you'll have to

0:38:380:38:41

think if we vote to someone they

don't get on each other and think of

0:38:410:38:46

different parties. Certainly I'm

looking at different parties to make

0:38:460:38:49

a right choice but unfortunately we

will send a future that something

0:38:490:38:52

has to change.

I think she is just

right. We don't even know what the

0:38:520:38:57

Irish Act means. On the cards, no

way. When two prime ministers come

0:38:570:39:04

together.

I hope that they would

find some kind of solution. When I

0:39:040:39:08

first heard about it over a year

ago. But the longer it goes on, I

0:39:080:39:14

believe the worse the situation we

may find ourselves in.

I just think

0:39:140:39:18

both sides at the moment are being,

obviously they have problems with

0:39:180:39:24

either sides arguments and things

but they are trying to put their

0:39:240:39:28

differences aside and sort out the

country. Which is falling apart

0:39:280:39:33

slightly.

0:39:330:39:34

Let's speak to our correspondent,

Keith Doyle who is in Belfast for us

0:39:340:39:38

this morning.

0:39:380:39:43

People there just want some

stability.

What can be done? You can

0:39:430:39:48

sense the exasperation here in

Northern Ireland, the fact these

0:39:480:39:51

talks have broken down, but you

can't underestimate the importance

0:39:510:39:56

and the polarising impact of the

Irish language here. It is a real

0:39:560:40:01

issue. Sinn Fein and the Democratic

Unionists, they were in power and

0:40:010:40:05

the only way the sharing executive

works if there are two parties from

0:40:050:40:09

opposite sides working together.

When Sinn Fein pulled out last

0:40:090:40:14

January, that brought the executive

down and the only way to get back is

0:40:140:40:20

if they can make some agreement and

get back into power. Sinn Fein said

0:40:200:40:25

it will not go back into power

unless there is a stand-alone Irish

0:40:250:40:28

Language Act, putting the Irish

language on some sort of official

0:40:280:40:32

status. The DUP are deeply worried

about that. We thought there was

0:40:320:40:37

some sort of agreement. We had

Theresa May here on Monday. We

0:40:370:40:43

thought there would be some sort of

agreement but the DUP can't sell

0:40:430:40:47

that issue of Irish Language Act to

its grassroots. There is a section

0:40:470:40:51

of society worried about seeing

signs in the Irish language, Irish

0:40:510:40:55

language quotas in civil servant

jobs, that sort of thing.

Explained

0:40:550:41:02

the practical things. There are

decisions involving hundreds of

0:41:020:41:05

thousands of pounds that need to be

made. Who can make these decisions

0:41:050:41:10

in the absence of an executive?

There is no government here. The

0:41:100:41:15

decisions for the last 13 months are

the day-to-day running being done by

0:41:150:41:20

civil servants here. Any big

decisions, on Hospital, roads, the

0:41:200:41:27

just simply haven't been made and

that is the exasperation. All sides

0:41:270:41:33

say they want devolved government

back. Without the executive back in

0:41:330:41:38

power, those decisions aren't being

made and they are being made by

0:41:380:41:43

London. London has issued a Budget

for Northern Ireland and it's likely

0:41:430:41:48

to do that again and between the

lines of the DUP statement, they

0:41:480:41:54

definitely want London to issue a

Budget but the look there between

0:41:540:41:58

the lines is for direct rule again.

The Irish and British governments

0:41:580:42:02

definitely do not want that. The

Northern Ireland Secretary Karen

0:42:020:42:07

Bradley said there are some

challenging dishes and is ahead and

0:42:070:42:11

there really are. What we are likely

to see is Westminster issuing a

0:42:110:42:18

Budget in the near future and those

decisions could be direct rule or

0:42:180:42:22

more elections for Northern Ireland

but it is unlikely that will solve

0:42:220:42:26

the problem.

' to situation. Always

good to talk to you.

0:42:260:42:34

Time format's weather forecast. --

Time for the weather forecast.

0:42:340:42:42

Time format's weather forecast. --

Time for the weather forecast. We

0:42:420:42:45

have some showers falling at the

moment and some of those will be

0:42:450:42:49

sleet and snow as we have seen for a

good while. The blue colours, the

0:42:490:42:55

rain showers, fairly well scattered.

The snow showers are packing in. But

0:42:550:43:04

they're covering of snow over the

high ground. We'll see some snow at

0:43:040:43:08

times. Further south, it would look

into closer detail after lunch, you

0:43:080:43:15

will notice there are still some big

gaps in Macau -- cloud. A few

0:43:150:43:22

showers drifting across Southern

counties. While there will be rain

0:43:220:43:25

showers, a touch of snow possible.

North and west of Northern Ireland,

0:43:250:43:34

particularly across the Highlands of

Scotland, because the upto 20

0:43:340:43:37

centimetres of snow. Of course, on

the hills, you can see by the blue

0:43:370:43:45

colours, it is going to say -- stay

sub zero throughout. It will feel

0:43:450:43:53

quite pleasant. Quite a bit of cloud

at times. Reducing further snow

0:43:530:44:03

flurries and a few showers across

the West of England and Wales. The

0:44:030:44:09

other thing to look out for tonight,

clear skies across the north and

0:44:090:44:14

north-east of Scotland. This is our

Aurora chart. The reds, more likely,

0:44:140:44:18

the Green, a smaller chance. You

could catch the aurora with clear

0:44:180:44:24

skies across parts of Scotland and

Northern Ireland in particular.

0:44:240:44:29

Cloud will begin in western areas. A

little bit of hill snow. After a

0:44:290:44:36

frosty and at places cloudy start

and a dry and reasonably sunny day

0:44:360:44:42

ahead. Clear skies across England

and Wales, a chilly start. Through

0:44:420:44:50

Saturday, some areas will brighten

up. In between, southern Scotland

0:44:500:44:56

and Northern Ireland, some or cloud.

A weak weather front. We'll see some

0:44:560:45:02

patches of rain in drizzle. This

weather system on Sunday, giving us

0:45:020:45:09

a bit of a headache. At the moment,

it does look like it will be England

0:45:090:45:15

and Wales. Outbreaks of Wayne and

the rest -- in the West. Further

0:45:150:45:20

north, more likely to stay dry but

there is a chance the rain -- there

0:45:200:45:25

is a chance the rain band could

intensify. Most places, ten or 11

0:45:250:45:30

degrees. The milder theme will

continue this weekend but next week

0:45:300:45:35

it looks like temperatures could

drop.

0:45:350:45:40

Using to say that ahead of every

weekend. I'm going to enjoy the

0:45:400:45:46

yellow numbers on Sunday -- you seem

to say. The are is tonight in the

0:45:460:45:51

far north of Scotland?

A small

chance tonight in the far north of

0:45:510:45:54

Scotland and Northern Ireland -- the

are. Clear skies are needed, though.

0:45:540:46:03

Later on can we have a scientific

explanation for it, please?

Yes,

0:46:030:46:07

after 9am.

OK, Matt, see you later!

0:46:070:46:17

All the business coming up in a few

minutes.

0:46:170:46:24

Children some Asiana Air as 12 are

being banned from driving before

0:46:240:46:28

they even legal of two drive --

children some as young as. The

0:46:280:46:33

number has risen by almost 50% over

the last four years. Phil Bodmer has

0:46:330:46:38

been to meet the sisters of a young

boy killed by a teenager driving

0:46:380:46:42

illegally.

0:46:420:46:46

The killed him and we didn't get to

see him... Well, we saw him but we

0:46:460:46:51

had to look through a window.

A

window, we couldn't touch him.

We

0:46:510:46:56

couldn't touch him, we couldn't see

him, it was a rural thing.

0:46:560:47:00

Distraught sister is describing the

agony of losing their 15-year-old

0:47:000:47:04

brother in a fatal car crash.

Darnell Harte was killed alongside

0:47:040:47:08

two other children and two men. They

were passengers in a stolen car

0:47:080:47:12

which hit a tree at high speed in

Leeds last November. A 15-year-old

0:47:120:47:16

boy was jailed for 4.5 years for

dangerous driving but he's far from

0:47:160:47:21

alone in being an underage driver.

I

was putting people in danger and

0:47:210:47:28

their lives matter to other people's

families.

Mike started driving on

0:47:280:47:32

the streets of Bradford and 16, he

and his friends used to hire a car

0:47:320:47:36

to take out onto the roads.

If there

a group of us, we will all chip in

0:47:360:47:41

and we'll let an older person know

we want a car and they will get a

0:47:410:47:45

car from someone is and bring it to

us. I do get a rush when I want to

0:47:450:47:50

put my foot down and go crazy.

In

2014 almost 700 children

0:47:500:48:03

2014 almost 700 children aged 16 and

under were disqualified from

0:48:040:48:06

driving, however last year that

number had risen to more than 1000,

0:48:060:48:09

an increase of 47%.

This is the tip

of the iceberg because of course

0:48:090:48:13

they have to be caught breaking the

law in this way and inevitably many

0:48:130:48:16

won't be, they will get away

scot-free.

Elyse and Natasha are now

0:48:160:48:20

cutting, calling for tougher jail

terms. The Minister of Justice said

0:48:200:48:23

it will bring forward changes to the

law as soon as an entry time allows.

0:48:230:48:27

Phil Bodmer, BBC News.

0:48:270:48:28

We will be talking about that issue

later. One of the things that is odd

0:48:280:48:32

about the banning of children, a 12

or 13-year-old if they get a

0:48:320:48:36

two-year ban, they serve that ban at

that age and then by the time they

0:48:360:48:40

are 17 they can drive, the ban has

been used up even though they

0:48:400:48:43

weren't old enough to drive.

We will

explain all of that later.

0:48:430:48:51

Ben is taking a look

at what children are spending

0:48:510:48:54

their pocket money on.

0:48:540:48:55

Nearly £1000 each? That is a lot of

money.

It all racks up and for big

0:48:550:49:00

business, they want a slice of that,

we're talking about whether there's

0:49:000:49:04

too much pressure on young people

from advertisers and peer pressure

0:49:040:49:07

to spend that money rather than

perhaps saving it. We've been

0:49:070:49:12

looking at some of the numbers.

0:49:120:49:13

It might be a few pounds

here and there, but for the firms

0:49:130:49:17

vying for that money

it's big business.

0:49:170:49:19

We're talking about young people and

their pocket money.

0:49:190:49:21

And we have a glimpse

of what children are spending

0:49:210:49:24

on with new figures this morning.

0:49:240:49:26

The ONS says the average

15-year-old gets through

0:49:260:49:28

£1,300 a year.

0:49:280:49:32

A typical 13 to 15-year-old girl

spends £1.70 a week on cosmetics

0:49:320:49:38

and toiletries, that's

about £88 a year.

0:49:380:49:43

For boys that

figure was nearer £5.

0:49:430:49:46

But one of the biggest expenses

for boys was computer games.

0:49:460:49:49

That came in at around

£57.20 a year.

0:49:490:49:51

As advertisers target that

spending, is the pressure

0:49:510:49:53

on young people increasing?

0:49:530:50:01

Michael Mercheka is chief

executive of Young Money,

0:50:030:50:05

a charity that teaches young people

to manage their finances.

0:50:050:50:08

He joins us from our

London newsroom.

0:50:080:50:11

Michael, good morning. Are you

surprised by any of these figures?

0:50:110:50:16

£1300 sounds quite a lot for pocket

money.

I'm not too surprised.

0:50:160:50:20

I think it's an average from five

-year-olds to 15 -year-olds and at

0:50:200:50:24

the lower end of five to seven

-year-olds in their spending £5 or

0:50:240:50:28

£6 a week and at the high end it is

closer to £12 a week. It includes

0:50:280:50:34

gifts and work people do so I'm not

hugely surprised by the amount,

0:50:340:50:38

note.

One of the big issues here is

financial education of course,

0:50:380:50:42

teaching people how to manage that

money and spend it wisely but also

0:50:420:50:47

perhaps save some of it. Let's talk

about spending it first of all. Is

0:50:470:50:51

there

0:50:510:50:57

there too much pressure on young

people because business says we want

0:50:570:51:00

a slice of this money, spend it with

us, is there too much pressure on

0:51:000:51:04

them to spend it?

There's always

been advertising pressure on people

0:51:040:51:07

to spend but with social media and

really targeted advertising at young

0:51:070:51:10

people, I think there is huge

pressure to spend. I think the focus

0:51:100:51:14

on the Facebook and Twitter type

being out there seeing your having a

0:51:140:51:21

good time and looking good, that's

hugely increased pressure on young

0:51:210:51:25

people, yes.

Let's talk about saving

because saving and getting their

0:51:250:51:29

idea of putting money away for a

rainy day to be instilled in young

0:51:290:51:34

people at an early age?

I totally

agree. I think it's really important

0:51:340:51:38

to start at a young age, and by that

we mean primary school, because we

0:51:380:51:43

do have a huge debt problem in the

UK. With the second most indebted

0:51:430:51:47

nation in the G8. -- we're the

second. There are basic principles

0:51:470:51:54

you can teach in school and it's not

on the curriculum in primary

0:51:540:51:59

schools, it's on the secondary state

curriculum, but there are basic

0:51:590:52:02

messages about saving and spending

and risk and reward. I think it's

0:52:020:52:07

really important that those lessons

are taught in an interesting way to

0:52:070:52:11

young people, and that can be done.

Some of the biggest decision in our

0:52:110:52:15

lives involve money, be that your

mortgage, your job, your pension.

0:52:150:52:19

Why isn't there more education for

young people about issues like that?

0:52:190:52:23

I think at the moment in the UK you

have quite a narrow focus on the

0:52:230:52:28

academic subjects, so what Young

Money does as a charity is to

0:52:280:52:34

support teachers to build financial

education into the existing

0:52:340:52:37

curriculum subjects, and you can

make geography field trips quite

0:52:370:52:40

interesting in a financial way. It's

just that teachers do what they have

0:52:400:52:46

to do, which is delivered the grades

on the curriculum, so until we widen

0:52:460:52:51

that to include things like

financial education and skills

0:52:510:52:54

education, it's going to be a

pressure on teachers.

Michael, good

0:52:540:52:59

to talk to you, thanks very much.

Interesting when you look at these

0:52:590:53:03

figures, another one to tell you,

girls between seven and 15 spend

0:53:030:53:06

twice as much as boys on books, £15

a year. Boys spend ten times as much

0:53:060:53:12

a girls on computer games. More from

me after 7am.

Thanks very much, Ben.

0:53:120:53:21

Set up on the site of a colliery,

Antony Gormley's the Angel

0:53:210:53:25

of the North celebrates its 20th

anniversary this week.

0:53:250:53:27

It initially divided opinion

with the late art critic

0:53:270:53:30

Brian Sewell describing

it as a monstrosity.

0:53:300:53:32

Fiona Trott examines how

the 200-tonne steel sculpture has

0:53:320:53:35

gone onto become one of Britain's

most popular landmarks.

0:53:350:53:43

The unmistakable Angel of the North,

towering over the A1 in Gateshead.

0:53:480:53:53

It's one of the most photographed

landmarks in Britain and viewed by

0:53:530:53:57

31 million people every year.

I've

grown to love it. I think people do

0:53:570:54:03

have a very warm feeling about it.

It's an artwork that doesn't stand

0:54:030:54:07

on its own as an artwork in a

gallery but it's very much part of

0:54:070:54:12

everyday life and in Gateshead in

this region.

In the middle of the

0:54:120:54:19

night 20 years ago, the Angel of the

North made its slow journey up the

0:54:190:54:23

A1. It was built in Hartlepool. Its

body, as long as four double-decker

0:54:230:54:29

buses. Its wings, wider than a

Boeing 757. People gathered at the

0:54:290:54:34

former colliery site in Gateshead to

watch it put in place. An historic

0:54:340:54:38

moment. And first people were

sceptical, why an angel? Why so

0:54:380:54:44

monumental? But soon they claimed it

as their own, and that's exactly

0:54:440:54:47

what the sculptor wanted.

The fact

is it's not my angel, it is the

0:54:470:54:52

Angel of the North and that means a

lot to me. I had an idea, but it was

0:54:520:55:02

realised, it was made by the people

of the north-east and it comes from

0:55:020:55:06

that extraordinary story of the

relationship between coalmining,

0:55:060:55:11

Ryan, engineering and that history

of the Industrial Revolution.

For

0:55:110:55:18

many it's a special place. There

have even been marriage proposals

0:55:180:55:22

here. Local people say it's put the

north-east on the map.

0:55:220:55:26

Northumberland is fabulous and the

angel I think the pics just how good

0:55:260:55:30

we are up here.

Well, I'm up from

London and I just wanted to see it

0:55:300:55:35

for myself. I've heard about it

before and, yeah, it's pretty

0:55:350:55:40

impressive if you ask me.

I think I

didn't like it in the beginning, I

0:55:400:55:44

think a lot of people would say that

but it's really grown on me and now

0:55:440:55:52

I love it.

The popularity of the

Angel has brought more money to the

0:55:520:55:56

area too. Since it arrived here

overnight visitor numbers have

0:55:560:55:59

increased by 14%. This has led to a

revenue increase of 48%. Newcastle

0:55:590:56:03

and Gateshead make around £1.5

billion a year through tourism and

0:56:030:56:07

they say the Angel is a major

contributor to that. On its 20th

0:56:070:56:15

birthday, the Angel is preparing for

1:00:161:00:16

17 people are killed

in a mass shooting at a high

1:00:161:00:19

school in Florida.

1:00:191:00:20

Children ran from their

classrooms as the gunman

1:00:201:00:22

attacked - police have arrested

a 19-year-old former student

1:00:221:00:24

who'd been expelled.

1:00:241:00:27

My best and was actually lost --

locked in a closet for a while. Ira

answering me at first.

1:00:321:00:42

Good morning - it's Thursday

the 15th of February.

1:00:501:00:52

Also this morning:

1:00:521:00:53

South Africa's President,

Jacob Zuma, resigns after his ANC

1:00:531:00:56

party threatend to force

a no-confidence vote over corruption

1:00:561:00:58

allegations - his successor

could be sworn in tomorrow.

1:00:581:01:06

A fresh warning about the dangers

of ultra-processed food -

1:01:061:01:09

researchers say the more people eat,

the higher their cancer risk.

1:01:091:01:17

British Steel workers have been

ripped off by advisers. We will look

1:01:241:01:29

at why and what is being done to

advise them.

Is it all down to the

1:01:291:01:37

new skeleton suits that they are

doing so well? We will chat to Amy

1:01:371:01:41

While it was high fives

for Liverpool in the Champions

1:01:501:01:56

League, they all but booked a place

in the quarter-finals,

1:01:561:01:58

winning the away leg

in Porto 5-0.

1:02:001:02:02

Mat with the weather.

1:02:021:02:03

A few showers around again producing

snow across the north and the West

1:02:031:02:06

of the UK.

1:02:061:02:08

First, our main story.

1:02:081:02:09

At least 17 people including

children and adults have been killed

1:02:091:02:12

after a gun attack at

a high school in Florida.

1:02:121:02:15

Several other people

are being treated in hospital.

1:02:151:02:17

Shortly after the shootings,

Police arrested a 19-year-old

1:02:171:02:19

former pupil who'd been

expelled from the school

1:02:191:02:25

in Parkland, around 50

miles north of Miami.

1:02:251:02:29

This was supposed to be one

of the safest communities

1:02:291:02:32

in the country.

1:02:321:02:33

In an instant, these students

became helpless targets,

1:02:331:02:35

sheltering in place

and fearing for their lives.

1:02:351:02:41

Officials now suggest this

was a well-planned plot to maximise

1:02:411:02:44

the loss of life.

1:02:441:02:45

Just moments before the end

of the school day, a former student

1:02:451:02:48

reportedly pulled the fire alarm at

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School

1:02:481:02:51

to draw out his

unsuspecting victims.

1:02:511:02:53

There had already been a drill

earlier in the day but confused

1:02:531:02:56

teachers followed procedure

and began to exit the building.

1:02:561:03:00

As soon the fire alarm got hold,

and kids were evacuating,

1:03:001:03:06

I heard five pops.

1:03:061:03:10

I was like, "That's not a drill."

1:03:101:03:12

We never did a drill like that.

1:03:121:03:14

When we started evacuating back

away towards the back,

1:03:141:03:17

towards the the middle school,

I knew it was more than a drill

1:03:171:03:20

because we've never done that.

1:03:201:03:22

Armed with an AR-15 semiautomatic

rifle, he began firing outside

1:03:221:03:24

and then continued inside the school

as panic and chaos erupted.

1:03:241:03:29

Police were warning the shooter

was still at large, even

1:03:291:03:32

as emergency workers rushed

to treat those wounded.

1:03:321:03:38

SWAT teams evacuated

distressed students.

1:03:381:03:42

In a row, some with hands

in the air, others clinging to each

1:03:421:03:46

other for support,

they frantically rushed to safety.

1:03:461:03:52

I see you, I see you, I see you!

1:03:521:03:55

Parents, sick with,

worry waited for news.

1:03:551:03:57

The suspect was arrested

without incident an hour later

1:03:571:04:01

Police identified him as Nikolas

Cruz, who had been expelled.

1:04:011:04:04

He was taken into custody,

I believe, about an hour

1:04:041:04:07

after he left Stoneman Douglas,

after he committed this horrific,

1:04:071:04:09

homicidal, detestable act.

1:04:091:04:11

This is the 18th school shooting

in the United States this year.

1:04:111:04:14

It's a uniquely American epidemic

that has only gotten worse.

1:04:141:04:19

Yet this country is more

divided than ever on how

1:04:191:04:25

to solve the problem.

1:04:251:04:33

You will be speaking to a local

journalist soon to bring you

1:04:361:04:40

up-to-date. -- we will be.

1:04:401:04:42

Jacob Zuma has resigned as President

of South Africa after nine

1:04:421:04:45

years in power.

1:04:451:04:46

His time in office has been marred

by allegations of corruption

1:04:461:04:49

and his own party, the ANC had

threatened to force him out

1:04:491:04:52

with a vote of no confidence.

1:04:521:04:54

Our reporter Pumza Fihlani

is in Johannesburg.

1:04:541:04:57

Pumza, good to see you. What are the

reactions like in terms of this

1:04:571:05:03

resignation? Was it expected to come

so smoothly?

Good morning. A mixed

1:05:031:05:08

reaction. It's been a long time

coming for a lot of people. A lot of

1:05:081:05:18

institutions have been involved in

getting Jacobson out from civil

1:05:181:05:22

society to opposition parties just

students staging the Rome protests.

1:05:221:05:30

How the President was running

things. It wasn't expected, I must

1:05:301:05:34

say, that it would go that smoothly.

Some are saying this says a lot

1:05:341:05:39

about the strength of South African

democracy and the strength of its

1:05:391:05:42

institutions, this was able to

happen peacefully and South Africans

1:05:421:05:47

are just waiting now for the new

president to be sworn in in

1:05:471:05:51

Parliament which could be later

today.

Pumza, much of the papers

1:05:511:05:57

reacting to these are looking

forward to how smooth the transition

1:05:571:06:00

will be in terms of leadership of

the ANC and the presidency.

Correct.

1:06:001:06:10

The man poised to take over, Cyril

Ramaphosa, was the current deputy

1:06:101:06:15

president and head of the African

National Congress. He was filmed

1:06:151:06:20

this morning going for a jog along

the beach. No expectation of any

1:06:201:06:27

interruptions. He is expected to be

sworn in later today. His name will

1:06:271:06:33

officially be presented in

Parliament before Chambers for them

1:06:331:06:36

to vote and he will be sworn in on

Friday in his first call of business

1:06:361:06:40

will be to present state of the

nation address. The first time that

1:06:401:06:46

he speaks, all things being equal,

as the president of South Africa.

1:06:461:06:53

There could be a link between a diet

of ultra-processed foods and cancer,

1:06:531:06:56

that's according to

researchers in France.

1:06:561:06:58

The study of more than

100,000 people suggests

1:06:581:07:00

that those who ate more of products

such as fizzy drinks,

1:07:001:07:03

mass-produced bread and processed

meats, had the highest

1:07:031:07:05

rates of cancer.

1:07:051:07:06

Here's our Health and Science

correspondent James Gallagher.

1:07:061:07:08

Ultra-processed foods include cakes,

chocolate, mass-produced bread,

1:07:081:07:11

crisps and pizza.

1:07:111:07:14

It's delicious temptation and too

much is bad for the waistline.

1:07:141:07:17

We know being overweight

increases the risk of cancer

1:07:171:07:20

but is there something else

about these foods that raises

1:07:201:07:22

the risk even further?

1:07:221:07:27

The study followed 105,000 French

people for five years.

1:07:271:07:31

It suggests increasing amounts

of our diet that are ultra-processed

1:07:311:07:34

by 10% is linked to a 12% increase

in the risk of cancer but even

1:07:341:07:41

the researchers say more work

is needed to establish why such

1:07:411:07:45

foods may increase cancer risk.

1:07:451:07:48

So what should we do?

1:07:481:07:52

A balanced diet, but actually even

more importantly is maintaining

1:07:521:07:58

a healthy weight and if we eat too

many ultra-processed foods,

1:07:581:08:01

then we do pile on the pounds

and although this study didn't look

1:08:011:08:04

closely at weight, we know very

clearly what the links

1:08:041:08:07

are

1:08:071:08:09

and cancer, so I think it's

a warning to us to have a healthy

1:08:091:08:13

diet and be

1:08:131:08:14

aware of the links

between our diet and cancer.

1:08:141:08:16

Other experts said the term

"ultra-processed food" was so broad,

1:08:161:08:19

it's hard to know what's really

going on, and that other unhealthy

1:08:191:08:22

habits could be muddying the waters.

1:08:221:08:24

It's why the study is being

described as an initial insight

1:08:241:08:27

rather than definitive proof

on the role of ultra-processed

1:08:271:08:29

foods and cancer.

1:08:291:08:37

The government has publicly blamed

Russian military intelligence

1:08:371:08:40

for a cyber attack last year

which affected businesses

1:08:401:08:42

around the world.

1:08:421:08:43

The Defence Secretary,

Gavin Williamson, said Russia

1:08:431:08:45

was "ripping up the rule book

by undermining democracy

1:08:451:08:47

and weaponising information".

1:08:471:08:49

Russia has denied

responsibility for the attack.

1:08:491:08:53

Dubious financial advisors exploited

former steel workers in a pensions

1:08:531:08:56

mis-selling scandal

according to MPs.

1:08:561:08:59

The Work and Pensions Select

Committee says it cost

1:08:591:09:02

the people involved

thousands of pounds,

1:09:021:09:04

and that the Financial Conduct

Authority did too little to protect

1:09:041:09:07

them after the closure

of the British Steel Pension Scheme.

1:09:071:09:15

Last year, members of the old

British Steel pension scheme based

1:09:151:09:20

decision of their savings.

1:09:201:09:22

British Steel pension scheme based

decision of their savings. Workers

1:09:221:09:24

could choose to transfer their

benefits out of the scheme. A report

1:09:241:09:28

by a committee of MPs says some of

those who did were exploited,

1:09:281:09:32

shamelessly bamboozled by dubious

financial advisers.

There have been

1:09:321:09:39

people who probably had been fleeced

of the most valuable asset they will

1:09:391:09:44

have ever had, which they built up

as part of their pension scheme of

1:09:441:09:49

which these financial vultures have

been after and in too many cases

1:09:491:09:56

been successful in getting their

claws on.

We uncovered the case of

1:09:561:10:01

Richard Bevan, who had transferred

his benefit into a private scheme

1:10:011:10:05

after seeking independent financial

advice. He estimates the decision

1:10:051:10:09

has cost him around £200,000.

Another greedy sort of person that

1:10:091:10:14

of obviously been led into something

that wasn't right for me by a

1:10:141:10:19

financial adviser. -- gullible. It

is not a nice place to be at the

1:10:191:10:25

moment.

The Financial Conduct

Authority is criticised in this

1:10:251:10:29

report are not acting quickly enough

after concerns were raised. It says

1:10:291:10:33

it is reviewing its rules on pension

transfers but for steelworkers like

1:10:331:10:38

Richard, any changes will be too

late.

1:10:381:10:44

A lack of training to help

professionals could be contributing

1:10:461:10:49

to an avoidable deaths were people

with learning disabilities. The are

1:10:491:10:55

seeing says there has been a

catastrophic decline in the number

1:10:551:11:00

of disability learning nurses since

2010. The Department of Health and

1:11:001:11:04

NHS England say they have made

learning disabilities a national

1:11:041:11:07

priority and will continue to

improve training.

I've never been

1:11:071:11:10

more concerned than I am right now

about the needs of people with

1:11:101:11:14

learning disabilities not getting

essential services, that they have

1:11:141:11:18

the right to access, and they are

being shortchanged and we need to

1:11:181:11:21

stand together with our partners and

say this is not acceptable. The

1:11:211:11:25

consequences of not doing that are

not paying attention to that are we

1:11:251:11:28

will see more debts, premature

deaths of people, and that is

1:11:281:11:34

totally unacceptable as a society.

1:11:341:11:40

More than 1000 driving bans were

issued to children who are not

1:11:401:11:43

legally old enough to be behind the

wheel of a car. The figure has risen

1:11:431:11:47

over 50% four years. Statistics were

given to the BBC under the Freedom

1:11:471:11:53

of Information Act. The RAC

described the numbers as the tip of

1:11:531:11:58

the iceberg.

1:11:581:12:02

Matt will have the weather and the

sport at half past.

1:12:021:12:07

Let's return to our main story this

morning and the news that at least

1:12:071:12:11

17 people, including

children and adults,

1:12:111:12:13

have been killed in a mass shooting

at a school in Florida.

1:12:131:12:16

Let's speak to journalist

James La Porta who lives nearby

1:12:161:12:19

and has spent the day with worried

parents at the scene.

1:12:191:12:22

Thank you very much for your time

this morning. Understand you have

1:12:221:12:26

had the opportunity to speak some of

the youngsters who were directly

1:12:261:12:29

involved in the shooting to take us

through what they have told you.

I

1:12:291:12:37

got here, I've been on the scene

since about three o'clock yesterday

1:12:371:12:42

evening. I live three miles away

from where the shooting occurred. I

1:12:421:12:54

report for the Daily Beast in New

York city. As soon as I got up here,

1:12:561:13:00

it was kind of a chaotic scene.

Parents were desperately trying to

1:13:001:13:04

reach their children and

unfortunately, so many people were

1:13:041:13:12

on their cellphones at the same

time, it clogged up phone lines and

1:13:121:13:17

accessing the Internet so getting

information from inside the school

1:13:171:13:21

was problematic. Some parents were

able to eventually reach their

1:13:211:13:26

children on the inside and some were

not. The ones who were not, they

1:13:261:13:32

really didn't know what to do. Many

of the parents gathered in prayer

1:13:321:13:37

circles and they just started

praying because they didn't know

1:13:371:13:40

what else to do.

Have you had the

opportunity to speak to any of those

1:13:401:13:46

who were in the school and were

evacuated safely?

I have. One

1:13:461:13:51

individual I spoke to yesterday, he

was outside the school when the

1:13:511:13:56

shooting occurred. The sequence of

events that happened was, the

1:13:561:14:02

shooter has allegedly pulled the

fire alarm and by pulling the fire

1:14:021:14:06

alarm, throughout the students and

the students started to come out of

1:14:061:14:11

classrooms and that's when the

GUNFIRE

1:14:111:14:12

started. This student was outside

the building when that occurred.

1:14:121:14:17

Initially, he heard five shots and

he said he heard something that

1:14:171:14:22

sounded like an AK-47. While it

wasn't an AK-47, the shots he heard

1:14:221:14:29

are in line with what officers

recovered. They did

1:14:291:14:37

recovered. They did recover an AR-15

type of weapon that the shooter was

1:14:371:14:41

using. He eventually link up with

his parents but his twin sister was

1:14:411:14:45

still inside so it took a bit of

time before those parents could be

1:14:451:14:50

reunited and speaking to his

father,, he essentially told me that

1:14:501:14:57

it's become a standard line. We

never think it will happen here and

1:14:571:15:03

it does. Unfortunately, this

shooting is the 18th shooting as a

1:15:031:15:09

just this year and that's

unfortunately the line we keep

1:15:091:15:13

hearing, we never thought it would

happen here, and it has.

1:15:131:15:21

James, it's the early hours of the

morning and there will be press

1:15:211:15:26

conferences later in the day, but in

terms of the timeline, how long was

1:15:261:15:30

the shooter in the school between

the time it began and he arrested?

1:15:301:15:35

What I can gather based on reporting

from multiple sources and multiple

1:15:351:15:42

publications is the shooting

occurred sometime between 2:30pm and

1:15:421:15:48

3pm yesterday, maybe leading up

towards 3:30pm yesterday. Multiple

1:15:481:15:53

shots were fired. 17 people are dead

right now. I've heard at least 14

1:15:531:15:59

people are injured and they've been

taken to local area hospitals. Some

1:15:591:16:04

of those people right now are

fighting for their lives.

1:16:041:16:09

Specifically one... There's a

football coach who works at the high

1:16:091:16:12

school who was also hired as a

security guard. Reports indicate he

1:16:121:16:18

took multiple gunshots as he was

shielding students from the gunfire.

1:16:181:16:23

Initial reports reported that he was

dead, he's actually not dead but as

1:16:231:16:27

of right now he's fighting for his

life. In terms of apprehension, the

1:16:271:16:32

gunman himself from what I've been

told... The gunman took off running

1:16:321:16:39

towards his place of residence and

at some point in time he was

1:16:391:16:45

captured within that timeframe. From

about 3:30pm to around... And this

1:16:451:16:54

is an estimation... Around 5:30

p.m., possibly 6pm. But that's just

1:16:541:16:59

an estimate at this point.

James,

thank you for your time this

1:16:591:17:03

morning, James LaPorta speaking to

us from Florida with the very latest

1:17:031:17:06

information about that shooting. As

he was saying, it's been confirmed

1:17:061:17:11

17 are dead following that shooting

in Parkland in Florida.

1:17:111:17:18

Time to talk to Matt to find out

what's going on with the weather.

1:17:181:17:22

It's that rocky road of mild, wet or

cold and a bit brighter?

1:17:221:17:28

It is. Over the next few days things

are turning milder than we've been

1:17:281:17:33

used to over the past week, but a

wintry theme out there today,

1:17:331:17:37

especially north and west. More

sunshine than yesterday but wintry

1:17:371:17:41

showers and snow over the hills of

Scotland again. As we're seeing this

1:17:411:17:45

morning, this is the latest rain and

snow radar chart. You see the snow

1:17:451:17:50

showers packing into northern and

western Scotland and Northern

1:17:501:17:53

Ireland. A few showers in England

and Wales, mainly rain, a bit of

1:17:531:17:57

sleet and snow in the tops of the

Pennines, most will clear. Eased in

1:17:571:18:01

areas will see showers through the

day but in the west the showers will

1:18:011:18:04

be everywhere -- Eastern. A breeze

coming, not as strong as yesterday,

1:18:041:18:08

but may be gale force wind winds

around the coast. Around 50-6

1:18:081:18:15

themph. A few showers, wintry over

the tops of the Welsh hills. The

1:18:151:18:20

chance of further snow flurries in

the Cumbrian fells and the north

1:18:201:18:24

Pennines. Most to the north and west

of Northern Ireland and mainly

1:18:241:18:28

across the Highlands and Islands of

Scotland. In the Highlands we could

1:18:281:18:31

see as much as 20 centimetres

falling, that could cause problems

1:18:311:18:35

on the roads. You can see the blue

colours in the Upland areas, subzero

1:18:351:18:40

throughout. But further south, quite

a mild day, ten or 11, certainly

1:18:401:18:46

compared to what we've been used to.

Temperatures drop away overnight and

1:18:461:18:50

as the showers fade, a touch of

frost, but some showers in the

1:18:501:18:53

forecast in the west of Scotland and

Northern Ireland and the risk of ice

1:18:531:18:57

for Friday morning. Could be icy

first thing. The other thing to

1:18:571:19:01

watch out for tonight in Scotland

and Northern Ireland, this shows

1:19:011:19:04

where it is possible see the Aurora,

the chance of the lighter green

1:19:041:19:10

colours pushing across Scotland and

Northern Ireland, the best chance of

1:19:101:19:13

seeing it with clear skies at times.

Always more cloud... More cloud

1:19:131:19:17

coming and going in Northern Ireland

and Scotland through the day.

1:19:171:19:24

Outbreaks of rain Wilson of but not

as much as today. Much of England

1:19:241:19:28

and Wales, any showers in the east

will disappear. -- with snow. That

1:19:281:19:35

takes us into a mild weekend. A

touch of frost around on Saturday in

1:19:351:19:41

the south. A weak weather front

pushing southwards. Southern

1:19:411:19:44

Scotland, northern England, north

Wales and Northern Ireland staying

1:19:441:19:48

cloudy on Saturday. Occasional rain

and drizzle. The top of Scotland

1:19:481:19:52

will see sunshine, the bottom of

England and Wales, sunny spells and

1:19:521:19:57

double-figure temperatures.

Uncertainty into Sunday if you've

1:19:571:19:59

got plans. Check the forecast. This

weather front will push in. The rain

1:19:591:20:05

will be on the southern flank in

parts of England and Wales, pushing

1:20:051:20:09

through on the breeze during the

day. While at the moment it looks

1:20:091:20:12

try and sunny in Northern Ireland,

the rain could go north. Check the

1:20:121:20:19

forecast. Look at the temperatures,

above where they should be for the

1:20:191:20:22

time of year, peaking around ten or

12. That's how it's looking, Naga

1:20:221:20:27

and Charlie.

Thanks, Matt, see you

later.

1:20:271:20:33

The Charity commission

1:20:331:20:34

The Charity commission will today

set out the scope of its enquiry

1:20:341:20:37

into allegations of sexual

misconduct by Oxfam workers

1:20:371:20:41

overseas.

1:20:411:20:42

Penny Mordaunt will meet

with the National Crime Agency

1:20:421:20:45

to discuss if action needs to be

taken to tackle exploitation

1:20:451:20:48

and abuse in the industry.

1:20:481:20:49

Oxfam says public confidence

in the charity may

1:20:491:20:51

have been damaged.

1:20:511:20:52

1,270 direct debit donations

were stopped in the first three days

1:20:521:20:55

following the allegations being

published in the Times newspaper.

1:20:551:20:58

The average cancellation rate

is around 600 per month.

1:20:581:21:03

That brings with it a potential

annual loss of more

1:21:031:21:09

than £144,000.

1:21:091:21:11

Kate Kirkland is a former Oxfam

trustee and is now a lecturer

1:21:111:21:15

in charity management

at St Mary's University.

1:21:151:21:17

She joins us now.

1:21:171:21:19

Good morning, thanks for talking to

us. You were a trustee?

I was a

1:21:191:21:25

trustee from the late 80s to the

mid-19 nineties.

A fair time ago but

1:21:251:21:30

you're still a donor?

I am.

A donor

for Oxfam. You're obviously aware of

1:21:301:21:36

how Oxfam has been run and the

systems in place to make sure that a

1:21:361:21:41

certain level of transparency of

behaviour is maintained. Can you

1:21:411:21:45

give us some insight into what the

role of the trustees would have been

1:21:451:21:52

and how holes have occurred?

It's

always difficult in any charity

1:21:521:21:59

because you're vulnerable to your

worst employee. You know, the number

1:21:591:22:07

of people working in the charity

sector who abuse the trust that is

1:22:071:22:11

placed in them is very, very small

but inevitably there is always the

1:22:111:22:16

rotten egg and Oxfam took the

allegations in Haiti seriously,

1:22:161:22:23

people were dismissed, people were

forced to resign. New safeguarding

1:22:231:22:27

procedures were put in place.

Obviously from what we're learning

1:22:271:22:32

now, they haven't been sufficient.

I've every confidence the trustees

1:22:321:22:38

and the management staff will

tighten up on those procedures. No

1:22:381:22:43

charity wants this to happen. It's

totally against the values that

1:22:431:22:47

Oxfam stands for.

I tell you what

some people will be confused about,

1:22:471:22:51

and we're seeing it in evidence now

as donations are being withdrawn to

1:22:511:22:54

the charity at a really exponential

rate, people will be confused

1:22:541:22:59

because what they're hearing is yes,

people were forced to resign but

1:22:591:23:02

they were also then given references

to work at other charities and

1:23:021:23:07

things weren't nipped in the bud

quickly enough. People are

1:23:071:23:11

wondering, how are these charities

governed? Who is keeping an eye on

1:23:111:23:15

these charities?

Well, as you

probably know, most charities have a

1:23:151:23:20

board of trustees, that's the group

of people who govern the charity.

1:23:201:23:25

They are all non-executive people.

What does that mean, does that mean

1:23:251:23:29

you don't have a hands-on approach

or you're observing from the

1:23:291:23:32

sideline?

The trustees are

volunteers themselves, they give a

1:23:321:23:38

lot of time and effort to help

govern the charity. But for example

1:23:381:23:43

in any large charity in the UK, the

trustees are only likely to meet

1:23:431:23:48

between, say, four and 12 times a

year. It's one of our problems with

1:23:481:23:53

our models of Charity governance,

how can trustees effectively be in

1:23:531:24:00

control of the management and

administration of the charity?

1:24:001:24:03

What's emerging clearly from the

situation at Oxfam, other people

1:24:031:24:06

have said it's not only them that

has some of these problems, things

1:24:061:24:10

happening on the ground, everyone

seems to know about them, as they

1:24:101:24:14

emerge, they say it's well known

this kind of thing was going on.

1:24:141:24:18

There's a disconnect between what a

lot of people know on the ground and

1:24:181:24:22

what the management, who are sitting

elsewhere, possibly in this country,

1:24:221:24:26

possibly elsewhere, they don't seem

to have a clue about it. That is not

1:24:261:24:31

acceptable, is it?

It's certainly

not acceptable.

Let me pose that as

1:24:311:24:36

a question. You can say it is a

rogue person in a case, that's not

1:24:361:24:41

the picture emerging, it's a picture

emerging of a lot of people who knew

1:24:411:24:45

a lot of things in the place where

there are vulnerable people, and

1:24:451:24:48

thousands of miles away a group of

people who should be managing it

1:24:481:24:52

have no idea. That can't be

accessible?

Of course it's not

1:24:521:24:57

acceptable. I can't speak on behalf

of Oxfam, though, and I don't know

1:24:571:25:01

the full facts of the case. But for

all charities, they put a lot of

1:25:011:25:11

effort into managing the risks that

faced the organisation.

Do you think

1:25:111:25:14

it's going to impose... I know this

is what you teach now, are they

1:25:141:25:19

going to have to say what we will do

is have much more direct input from

1:25:191:25:24

senior management into what's

happening on the ground? How do you

1:25:241:25:27

address what is clearly a gap that

is urged?

In a very large

1:25:271:25:32

organisation the way you control

things that are happening on the

1:25:321:25:37

ground is through having effective

policies in place -- that's emerged.

1:25:371:25:42

Oxfam has these policies around

recruitment. Other charities working

1:25:421:25:50

with vulnerable people. We've had

scandals involving charities working

1:25:501:25:55

with disabilities.

You're not here

to answer for them but we're in the

1:25:551:25:59

position now where it's not enough

to say there's policies in place

1:25:591:26:02

because this has happened. It's not

a fallback position they can take

1:26:021:26:06

saying we have policies.

I'm saying

how the trustees control it is

1:26:061:26:10

through setting the policies of the

organisation. What has obviously

1:26:101:26:14

gone wrong is that policies haven't

been sufficiently pursued in also

1:26:141:26:20

Constanta is.

As Charlie said, you

lecture in charity management -- in

1:26:201:26:29

all circumstances. One of the things

we mentioned was the withdrawal of

1:26:291:26:32

direct damp

1:26:321:26:39

direct damp donations for Oxfam --

direct debit. This is a tragedy, it

1:26:391:26:43

is an awful point in its existence.

How does Oxfam recover from that?

1:26:431:26:51

What message can it now send out to

people who have put faith in this

1:26:511:26:56

charity and feel wholly let down by

the behaviour of some of its

1:26:561:27:00

workers?

What I would teach my

students in terms of crisis

1:27:001:27:04

management is the first thing you do

is you own up to what's happened.

1:27:041:27:08

You're completely honest.

Do you

think Oxfam have done that?

I think

1:27:081:27:12

Oxfam have done that. It seems to be

sending out regular communications

1:27:121:27:18

to all its supporters explaining

what's happening, apologising for

1:27:181:27:22

what's happening. People have taken

responsibility. Penny Lawrence has

1:27:221:27:27

resigned. That's a woman of great

integrity who has spent the whole of

1:27:271:27:33

her professional life supporting the

most vulnerable people in this

1:27:331:27:37

world. She worked for VSO for a long

time before she worked for Oxfam.

1:27:371:27:44

It's a personal charity for her.

She's admitted that problems arose

1:27:441:27:48

on her watch and has taken

responsibility and resigned.

Kate

1:27:481:27:52

Kirkland, thanks for your time this

morning. Kate Kirkland is a lecturer

1:27:521:27:57

in charity management at St Mary's

university. Thank you.

Thank you.

1:27:571:28:01

Time now to get the news,

travel and weather where you are.

1:28:011:28:04

in half an hour.

1:31:251:31:26

Plenty more on our website

at the usual address.

1:31:261:31:29

Now, though, it's back

to Charlie and Naga.

1:31:291:31:31

Bye for now.

1:31:311:31:31

Hello - this is Breakfast

with Naga Munchetty

1:31:371:31:39

and Charlie Stayt.

1:31:391:31:40

Here's a summary of this morning's

main stories from BBC News.

1:31:401:31:43

At least 17 people including

children and teachers have been

1:31:431:31:46

killed after a gun attack

at a high school in Florida.

1:31:461:31:49

Several other people

are being treated in hospital.

1:31:491:31:51

Shortly after the shootings,

police arrested a 19-year-old

1:31:511:31:53

former pupil who'd been

expelled from the school

1:31:531:31:57

in Parkland, around 50

miles north of Miami.

1:31:571:32:05

I think is the news of this spread

around the nation, many asked, how

1:32:071:32:12

is this happening again but really,

for people here in Parkland,

1:32:121:32:16

Florida, what you heard from so many

was that they never thought this

1:32:161:32:20

would happen here. This is a very

safe community -- community, a gated

1:32:201:32:25

community with palm trees. Everyone

spoke about how loving the community

1:32:251:32:29

is. So there was shock that

something like this, that is so

1:32:291:32:34

prevalent around the country, still

shocked that it could happen here

1:32:341:32:37

and in a press conference by several

of the officials as they gave an

1:32:371:32:41

update on the status of the 17

victims, as they try to identify

1:32:411:32:45

each one and that by the families,

they really said that this will take

1:32:451:32:49

time as a community to heal but that

they are dedicated to making sure

1:32:491:32:53

that they have those who are coming

to this high school and in the rest

1:32:531:32:58

of the school system confident that

they can be safe when they go to

1:32:581:33:02

school but still, that is a question

that the rest of the United States

1:33:021:33:05

will have to grapple with and one

that President Trump mentioned

1:33:051:33:09

briefly in his tweet because he said

no child, no teacher or anyone else

1:33:091:33:12

should be one save in an American

school and it's the reality in

1:33:121:33:16

America now that that is something

that politicians are going to have

1:33:161:33:20

to get a grip on.

1:33:201:33:21

Jacob Zuma has resigned as President

of South Africa after nine

1:33:211:33:24

years in power.

1:33:241:33:25

His time in office has been marred

by allegations of corruption,

1:33:251:33:28

and his own party, the ANC had

threatened to force him out

1:33:281:33:32

with a vote of no-confidence.

1:33:321:33:33

In a televised statement he said

he was quitting with immediate

1:33:331:33:36

effect but said he disagreed

with his ANC party's decision.

1:33:361:33:44

The consumption of highly-processed

foods, including cakes,

1:33:461:33:48

chicken nuggets and mass-produced

bread is linked to the risk

1:33:481:33:51

of cancer, according

to researchers in France.

1:33:511:33:59

The study of more than 100,000

people is published

1:34:091:34:11

in the British Medical Journal.

1:34:111:34:13

Experts have expressed caution,

but continue to advise eating

1:34:131:34:15

a healthy balanced diet.

1:34:151:34:16

The government has publicly blamed

Russian military intelligence

1:34:161:34:18

for a cyber attack last year,

which affected businesses

1:34:181:34:21

around the world.

1:34:211:34:22

The Defence Secretary,

Gavin Williamson, said Russia

1:34:221:34:24

was "ripping up the rule book

by undermining democracy

1:34:241:34:26

and weaponising information".

1:34:261:34:27

Russia has denied

responsibility for the attack.

1:34:271:34:29

Dubious financial advisors exploited

former steel workers in a pensions

1:34:291:34:31

mis-selling scandal

according to MPs.

1:34:311:34:33

The Work and Pensions Select

Committee says it cost

1:34:331:34:35

the people involved

thousands of pounds,

1:34:351:34:37

and that the Financial Conduct

Authority did too little to protect

1:34:371:34:40

Last year, members of

the old British Steel pension scheme

1:34:401:34:43

based decision of their savings.

1:34:431:34:44

Now, have you ever seen a baby

and said, "Oh they're so cute,

1:34:441:34:47

"I could eat them up."

1:34:471:34:49

Well, here are some that

you could actually eat.

1:34:491:34:51

An amateur baker has created

life-size cake versions of her twin

1:34:511:34:55

daughters to celebrate

their first birthday.

1:34:551:35:03

Lara Mason spent more than 100 hours

crafting the edible version

1:35:041:35:07

of her daughters Lily and Lyla.

1:35:071:35:15

She used 44 eggs, two kilos of

flour, four kilos of butter cream.

I

1:35:311:35:40

love the fact that Lyla on the right

was taking no interest.

How did you

1:35:401:35:47

know? The way it was read. I

presumed it was left and right.

Does

1:35:471:35:54

it matter? I do like biting the head

of the gingerbread man.

Here is the

1:35:541:36:00

thing, when you slice that cake...

Stop it, it's...

1:36:001:36:06

But it has to be eaten. Do you go

for an ear?

1:36:061:36:10

Do you slice down or up?

Take as a

way to the Winter Olympics.

1:36:101:36:22

way to the Winter Olympics.

Don

Parsons says he will read a book,

1:36:221:36:25

switch off ahead of the two biggest

runs of his life in the early hours

1:36:251:36:30

of tomorrow morning. Is it a wonder

those new suits with those special

1:36:301:36:37

ridges that cut down resistance.

Let's speak to and downs in

1:36:371:36:42

PyeongChang. Is it the suits which

are helping?

1:36:421:36:49

-- Catherine downs. Nobody knows if

it is the suits, it's been part of

1:36:491:36:56

skeleton of the last few years but

skeleton has been rich pickings for

1:36:561:37:00

British athletes over the past

couple of Olympics. Of course,

1:37:001:37:07

Lizzie Yarnold gets the competition

under way. Laura D is doing well.

1:37:071:37:12

And of course in 2010, Amy Williams

one the girls in Vancouver and she

1:37:121:37:17

is standing right next to me on the

balcony. We are talking about Don

1:37:171:37:23

Parsons and the suits. I will get

onto that in a minute. Here's 31

1:37:231:37:28

hundredths of a second off the

bronze medal positions is going to

1:37:281:37:32

be a massive night for him. He is

within touching distance of a medal.

1:37:321:37:39

He is so, so close and just has to

hold it together. He has got on well

1:37:391:37:44

in the training runs. Every thing is

coming together. He's peaking at the

1:37:441:37:49

right time, he is in a happy place.

He is so close. His cot -- he has

1:37:491:37:56

got to go back to his place, relax,

recover. Have a good night 's sleep

1:37:561:38:01

and wake up and try to forget what

has happened today. Forget it, start

1:38:011:38:06

again. Two more runs, anything can

happen.

Two runs from an Olympic

1:38:061:38:12

medal, that would be incredible.

Jerry Rice is in 12th as well. We

1:38:121:38:17

have the chance of two top-10

finishes. And the women looking

1:38:171:38:23

incredibly strong. Lizzie Yarnold,

not a great season.

1:38:231:38:31

not a great season. And Laura Dees.

They are both in a really good

1:38:331:38:37

place. Peaking every four years the

Olympic Games, we are good at that.

1:38:371:38:43

Nor has some unbelievable start

times which is what you need on this

1:38:431:38:47

track. You have to get certain parts

of it right because you are never

1:38:471:38:54

going to make up the speed. The

girls have been doing well and it

1:38:541:38:58

looks like they could get a medal.

If everything comes together, keep

1:38:581:39:01

it together in the head,

psychologically, they got to stay

1:39:011:39:05

calm. You got to focus on your

performance. That is what we are

1:39:051:39:10

hoping Don will do tomorrow.

Is it

all down to the suits? It's down to

1:39:101:39:17

these errors is to ridges. But they

are the seats you always had.

1:39:171:39:23

Speaking to the team, they said

there is nothing different. Yes, we

1:39:231:39:27

do a lot of stuff in wind tunnels

but so does every other sport.

1:39:271:39:33

Whether they are tied to

psychologically met with everyone's

1:39:331:39:37

head, but every piece of equipment

gets tested. It all gets tested.

1:39:371:39:44

Great Britain are using nothing that

is illegal or two dodgy. Everyone in

1:39:441:39:50

the team, the athletes are calm and

though they are not doing anything

1:39:501:39:54

wrong and if other nations want to

kick up a fuss and nudge us off our

1:39:541:39:58

good place, they can go ahead but

they are not going to stop the

1:39:581:40:03

performance of Great Britain.

1:40:031:40:08

performance of Great Britain.

It's

all very, no witchcraft. Thank you

1:40:091:40:13

for bringing us up-to-date.

Hopefully we are talking to you

1:40:131:40:16

about some GB medals. The weather

has calmed down so we've had a full

1:40:161:40:23

schedule of events and picking up

some of the ones that were postponed

1:40:231:40:28

over the last few days, including

the women's giant slalom which was

1:40:281:40:39

won by Mikaela Shiffrin of the USA.

She won gold in Sochi at just 18

1:40:391:40:45

years old and she is the Olympic

champion once again. Alex Tilly the

1:40:451:40:49

Great Britain crashed out after 55

seconds but has other events coming

1:40:491:40:53

up. She has more to come. And

Switzerland's Lara Gut crashed in

1:40:531:41:03

spectacular tile -- style, taking

out photographers. I don't think

1:41:031:41:07

many of them will forget in a hurry.

We have the oldest champion ever

1:41:071:41:12

when it comes to alpine skiing.

1:41:121:41:22

when it comes to alpine skiing. It

was Aksil Lund Svindal, enormous

1:41:221:41:25

oppressions but he was a bit sad and

disappointed by the lack of

1:41:251:41:29

spectators to see and claim that the

big title. And the curling

1:41:291:41:33

continues. Great Britain's women who

won bronze last time around, they

1:41:331:41:38

lost their second match of the Games

for- seven to the USA. They were

1:41:381:41:45

making their Olympic debut survey

shock loss to Eve Muirhead and her

1:41:451:41:54

team. They play China survey can

redeem themselves. They beat Russia

1:41:541:41:57

yesterday. And the men still in

action against Japan, a very tight

1:41:571:42:01

match for them at the moment. It was

five ends all. In the ninth end as

1:42:011:42:07

well. Going to that decisive final

tense end. A very tight match the

1:42:071:42:12

British men against Japan. They lost

to the defending champions. This is

1:42:121:42:20

a match they really need to win. As

well is watching you, we are glued

1:42:201:42:28

to the TV screen. Great Britain have

just taken that last stone. I think

1:42:281:42:41

Great Britain have just secured a

very important stone. We will get

1:42:411:42:46

confirmation. They seem in good

spirits. It was a good final stone

1:42:461:42:50

that they just delivered. I think it

was 6-5 to Great Britain against

1:42:501:42:55

Japan. I think they are getting back

on form now. Finished with a flurry,

1:42:551:43:04

by the way. It finished almost bang

in the middle.

1:43:041:43:14

in the middle. It was Liverpool's

first game in a knockout stages. And

1:43:141:43:18

how they marked the occasion in

style. Helping to a 5- nil away win

1:43:181:43:24

against the Portuguese side. The

headline of the day, clockwork

1:43:241:43:28

Orange. A very good one.

1:43:281:43:35

That is a very good one.

1:43:351:43:37

Exactly as good as necessary

so at the end, it was a high result

1:43:371:43:41

but I think everybody saw

in the game and all the moments

1:43:411:43:44

where we weren't as compact.

1:43:441:43:45

They had their moments,

we scored in the right moment.

1:43:451:43:48

British tennis number

One Johanna Konta has made it

1:43:481:43:51

through to the last

16 at the Qatar Open.

1:43:511:43:53

Konta is looking to

kickstart her season again,

1:43:531:43:55

after a disappointing

Australian Open and had a good win,

1:43:551:43:58

getting past World Number 29

Carla Suarez Navarro.

1:43:581:44:00

She now faces Angelique Kerber,

for a place in the quarterfinals.

1:44:001:44:08

Confirmation that Great Britain did

win that final stone against Japan

1:44:091:44:16

6-5. Later, some fantastic guests on

the sofa as well is in PyeongChang.

1:44:161:44:26

Minnie Knight, who I had the

pleasure of skiing with. She gave me

1:44:271:44:31

her goggles which cuts outside. She

can go down the slope without being

1:44:311:44:37

able to see at 80 miles an hour.

The

athletes we are seeing here have a

1:44:371:44:43

nerve but talking about fearless.

Winter Paralympics, coming soon.

1:44:431:44:47

Just on the sofa after nine o'clock.

Good morning. Let's find out what is

1:44:471:44:54

happening with the weather. Good

morning.

1:44:541:44:56

happening with the weather. Good

morning. I've got most of the

1:44:561:45:01

answers are the least. Out there

today, at least the good sunshine

1:45:011:45:06

across the country than yesterday.

It will be punctuated by some

1:45:061:45:10

further wintry showers across

northern western parts. We have had

1:45:101:45:14

some showers clearing up, one of two

isolated showers, some pushing in

1:45:141:45:22

towards the Bristol Channel but

across the West of Scotland,

1:45:221:45:25

Northern Ireland, lots of snow

flurries. The win is not quite as

1:45:251:45:32

strong as yesterday. They will keep

on going. Eastern areas will have a

1:45:321:45:37

largely dry day. Certainly across

the south-east, it could stay dry.

1:45:371:45:43

Still pushing into was the

south-west as we the afternoon. A

1:45:431:45:47

little of snow, some snow on the

tops of the Pennines. Some further

1:45:471:45:56

showers and across the Highlands of

Scotland. Blown around by a strong

1:45:561:46:03

winds. Temperatures stay below

freezing. Temperatures up in recent

1:46:031:46:10

days. The sun gaining a bit more

strength. Shouldn't feel too bad at

1:46:101:46:16

all. Showers in southern areas will

fade. Especially western Scotland,

1:46:161:46:23

Northern Ireland temperatures close

to if not below freezing, and ice

1:46:231:46:27

risk to watch out for on Friday

morning. Tonight, this chart shows

1:46:271:46:31

where there is a chance where the

Aurora is. Notice how this chance

1:46:311:46:37

increases during the early part of

the night. It gets clear skies here,

1:46:371:46:41

you may get a bit of display

overhead. Into Friday, another

1:46:411:46:46

story. Sunshine and showers to

Scotland and Northern Ireland.

1:46:461:46:50

Cladding over a bit more in the day

but the showers will mainly rain.

1:46:501:46:54

Snow limited to the hills. Across

England and Wales, one of the early

1:46:541:46:59

showers. A dry day with gaps in the

cloud. Temperatures again in double

1:46:591:47:07

figures. With windfall in a bit the

south to the later stage of Friday,

1:47:071:47:11

we could see some foster round. The

weekend, some mist and fog patches,

1:47:111:47:19

sunny spells but a weather front

travelling across Northern Ireland

1:47:191:47:21

and southern Scotland. That will

bring some Scott spots of light

1:47:211:47:26

rain. To be? Comes the Sunday. At

the moment, it looks like primarily

1:47:261:47:39

across parts of England and Wales.

Some breaks in the round -- in the

1:47:391:47:46

cloud that just the chance of rain

band. Keep an eye on your forecast

1:47:461:47:51

if you got any plans this weekend.

As far as rainfall is concerned,

1:47:511:47:56

throughout this weekend,

temperatures up on what they've

1:47:561:47:58

been. Many bases close to double

figures.

1:47:581:48:06

And we get the chance to CD-R

borealis?

Some might see it tonight

1:48:061:48:10

in parts of Scotland and Northern

Ireland, you will need clear skies

1:48:101:48:14

but there will be a few showers

around -- chance to see the horror

1:48:141:48:19

borealis?

1:48:191:48:20

MPs are calling it the latest

pension scandal to hit the UK.

1:48:201:48:23

Ben can explain.

1:48:231:48:24

A damning verdict on some of the

advice given for some people in the

1:48:241:48:28

former British steel pension-fund.

1:48:281:48:30

You might remember Tata Steel took

over operations of British Steel,

1:48:301:48:33

but got into trouble

a few years ago.

1:48:331:48:36

So, as part of plans

to save the business its pension

1:48:361:48:39

scheme was closed and members

told they would have

1:48:391:48:41

to move their pension into a new,

less generous scheme.

1:48:411:48:44

But many chose instead

to take their money out and invest

1:48:441:48:47

it elsewhere and that's cost

them a lot of money.

1:48:471:48:55

MPs say those workers have been

"shamelessly bamboozled" by advisers

1:48:581:49:01

and have described the whole affair

1:49:011:49:02

as an "erupting" mis-selling

scandal.

1:49:021:49:04

Tom McPhail is with me,

he's a pensions expert

1:49:041:49:06

from Hargreaves Lansdown.

1:49:061:49:10

Tom, good morning.

Good morning.

Been described as a new scandal,

1:49:101:49:14

let's start with how much money,

it's a lot?

Absolutely. These

1:49:141:49:20

individuals had pension pot worth

hundreds of thousands, in a few

1:49:201:49:23

cases over £1 million. This is their

retirement savings, their life

1:49:231:49:28

savings, and across the thousands of

people who have been involved in

1:49:281:49:32

this scandal, we are therefore

talking about hundreds of millions

1:49:321:49:34

of pounds. In some cases these guys

have lost tens of thousands from

1:49:341:49:39

their retirement.

The point was they

were never respected you have to

1:49:391:49:43

make tough decisions about it, they

invested in the scheme and they

1:49:431:49:46

expected it to continue but we know

the problems with Tata Steel, they

1:49:461:49:50

say you've got to move it and this

is where the problem crept in?

1:49:501:49:53

Absolutely, the members were faced

with suddenly having to make a

1:49:531:49:57

pretty convex decision about staying

in scheme A or B, either of which

1:49:571:50:02

would have involved the loss of some

of their pension rights -- complex.

1:50:021:50:08

That created issues around the trust

towards pension scheme

1:50:081:50:10

administrators. They weren't in a

good situation to start with and

1:50:101:50:13

then advises knocked on the door and

said there's a third option, if you

1:50:131:50:17

want we can take your rights out of

the scheme altogether and turn it

1:50:171:50:21

into a big bag of money into a

private pension and you can have

1:50:211:50:25

control. It's hardly surprises of

the scheme members were seduced by

1:50:251:50:28

that sales pitch.

If someone said I

will give you access to your

1:50:281:50:33

pension, here's half £1 million, you

would think that's a good thing, but

1:50:331:50:37

the issue it has cost a lot of

money, they have taken a lot of

1:50:371:50:44

these and some of the investment

advice was terrible.

Absolutely, for

1:50:441:50:46

most people in most cases it is a

bad idea. -- sees. People

1:50:461:50:50

underestimate the guaranteed value

of the pension they have. It's a

1:50:501:50:54

guaranteed pension for life and

worth hundreds of thousands. They

1:50:541:50:57

look at the big bag of money and

they don't appreciate it's not

1:50:571:51:01

necessarily a fair deal in terms of

what they are giving up. Then you

1:51:011:51:05

get onto the fact that what they put

into had high charges, the advisers

1:51:051:51:09

were taking up high transaction

costs, altogether money was getting

1:51:091:51:12

sliced out of their pension pots as

they went through the process.

What

1:51:121:51:16

helpful people who might have fallen

victim to this?

Ideally we would

1:51:161:51:20

have seen the trustees act on this

situation earlier and quicker and

1:51:201:51:24

pre-empt some of these problems and

give better information. The

1:51:241:51:28

Financial Conduct Authority is now

looking at what's gone on with the

1:51:281:51:31

advice. Hopefully those members who

have been mis- advised will get

1:51:311:51:36

recompense and restitution for that,

but that's going to be quite a long,

1:51:361:51:40

slow process. I think my advice to

anyone in this kind of situation if

1:51:401:51:45

it ever comes up is in principle

generally it's not a good idea to

1:51:451:51:49

transfer out of a final salary

steam, that's where the problem

1:51:491:51:51

started.

A lot of people have been

facing that dilemma, not just former

1:51:511:51:56

British Steel workers, we have these

new pension freedoms to move money,

1:51:561:52:00

take a bit out and invest elsewhere,

is there a danger with those

1:52:001:52:03

freedoms come a lot of risk?

Absolutely, we have heard of BHS,

1:52:031:52:09

Carillion and British Steel and that

undermines people's confidence in

1:52:091:52:12

final salary pension schemes but

most of the time in reality they are

1:52:121:52:16

good deal so if you have one, hang

onto it. If you don't have one of

1:52:161:52:21

those, if you have a personal

pension, a pot of savings money,

1:52:211:52:24

then pension freedoms are a good

thing, they give you control of your

1:52:241:52:28

money and they are very popular.

Given the choice you're better

1:52:281:52:31

staying with a guaranteed pension of

a final salary steam but most people

1:52:311:52:35

don't have that choice any more.

Such a difficult area, thanks for

1:52:351:52:39

explaining, Tom McPhail from

Hargreaves Lansdowne. Later I will

1:52:391:52:44

be back to talk about however one

might be getting a pay rise, workers

1:52:441:52:48

getting an uplift in salaries --

however it one. -- how everyone.

1:52:481:52:55

Set up on the site of a colliery,

Antony Gormley's The Angel

1:52:551:52:59

of the North celebrates its 20

anniversary this week.

1:52:591:53:01

It initially divided opinion

with the late art critic,

1:53:011:53:03

Brian Sewell describing

it as a monstrosity.

1:53:031:53:05

Fiona Trott examines how

the 200-tonne steel sculpture has

1:53:051:53:08

gone onto become one of Britain's

most popular landmarks.

1:53:081:53:10

The unmistakable Angel of the North,

towering over the A1 in Gateshead.

1:53:101:53:13

It's one of the most photographed

landmarks in Britain and viewed

1:53:131:53:16

by 31 million people every year.

1:53:161:53:24

I've grown to love it.

1:53:321:53:33

I think people do have a very

warm feeling about it.

1:53:331:53:36

It's an artwork that doesn't stand

on its own as an artwork

1:53:361:53:40

in a gallery but it's very much

part of everyday life,

1:53:401:53:43

in Gateshead in this region.

1:53:431:53:44

In the middle of the night 20 years

ago, the Angel of the North

1:53:441:53:48

made its slow journey up the A1.

1:53:481:53:50

It was built in Hartlepool.

1:53:501:53:53

Its body, as long as four

double-decker buses.

1:53:531:53:57

Its wings, wider than a Boeing 757.

1:53:571:53:59

People gathered at the former

colliery site in Gateshead to watch

1:53:591:54:02

it put in place.

1:54:021:54:03

An historic moment.

1:54:031:54:11

And first people were

sceptical, why an Angel?

1:54:131:54:15

Why so monumental?

1:54:151:54:16

But soon they claimed it

as their own, and that's exactly

1:54:161:54:19

what the sculptor wanted.

1:54:191:54:20

The fact is it's not my Angel,

it is the Angel of the North

1:54:201:54:23

and that means a lot to me.

1:54:231:54:25

I had an idea, but it was realised,

it was made by the people

1:54:251:54:29

of the north-east and it comes

from that extraordinary story

1:54:291:54:32

of the relationship

between coalmining, iron,

1:54:321:54:34

engineering and that history

of the Industrial Revolution.

1:54:341:54:41

For many it's a special place.

1:54:461:54:47

There have even been

marriage proposals here.

1:54:471:54:51

Local people say it's put

the north-east on the map.

1:54:511:54:53

Northumberland is fabulous

and the Angel I think depicts just

1:54:531:54:56

how good we are up here.

1:54:561:54:58

Well, I'm up from London and I just

wanted to see it for myself.

1:54:581:55:02

I've heard about it before and,

yeah, it's pretty impressive

1:55:021:55:04

if you ask me.

1:55:041:55:05

I think I didn't like it

in the beginning, I think a lot

1:55:051:55:09

of people would say that but it's

really grown on me and now

1:55:091:55:12

I love it.

1:55:121:55:13

Aurora

1:55:131:55:18

The popularity of the Angel has

brought more money to the area too.

1:55:181:55:22

Since it arrived here overnight

visitor numbers have

1:55:221:55:24

increased by 14%.

1:55:241:55:25

This has led to a revenue

increase of 48%.

1:55:251:55:30

Newcastle and Gateshead make around

£1.5 billion a year through tourism

1:55:301:55:33

and they say the Angel is a major

contributor to that.

1:55:331:55:36

On its 20th birthday,

the Angel is preparing

1:55:361:55:38

for a medical.

1:55:381:55:46

Like all structures,

its joints need to be checked

1:55:481:55:51

so it can stand proud

for future generations.

Fiona Trott, BBC News, Gateshead.

1:55:531:56:01

looked absolutely stunning there,

but whatever the weather, I think

1:56:051:56:08

it's a really impressive piece of

art. Always makes you go, ah, there

1:56:081:56:13

it is!

1:56:131:56:14

Time now to get the news,

travel and weather where you are.

1:56:141:59:33

I'm back with the latest

from the BBC London newsroom

1:59:331:59:36

in half an hour.

1:59:361:59:37

Plenty more on our website

at the usual address.

1:59:371:59:39

Hello, this is Breakfast, with

Naga Munchetty and Charlie Stayt.

1:59:582:00:01

17 people are killed

in a mass shooting at

2:00:012:00:03

a high school in Florida.

2:00:032:00:04

Some pupils ran from the building

as the gunman opened fire -

2:00:042:00:07

others were forced to

hide in classrooms.

2:00:072:00:13

My best friend was locked in a

closet for a while. I was nervous

2:00:132:00:18

because she wasn't answering me as

first.

2:00:182:00:20

first.

2:00:202:00:21

Police have arrested

the suspected gunman -

2:00:212:00:22

he's a 19-year-old former student

who'd been expelled from the school.

2:00:222:00:30

Good morning. Jacob Zuma resigns

after his ANC party threaten add no

2:00:442:00:52

confidence vote of corruption, his

successor could be sworn in

2:00:522:00:54

tomorrow.

A fresh morning about the dangers of

2:00:542:00:58

ultra processed food. Researchers

say the more people eat the higher

2:00:582:01:04

their risk of cancer.

2:01:042:01:06

Workers are in line for their best

pay rise in ten years.

2:01:062:01:09

That's according to the Bank

of England who predict wages

2:01:092:01:11

will increase above inflation.

2:01:112:01:16

Good morning from the winter

Olympics where Dom Parsons is just

2:01:162:01:21

off the bronze medal position at the

2:01:212:01:25

half way stage of the men's

2:01:252:01:35

Liverpool wonning their way leg in

Porto 5-0. Matt has the weather for

2:01:362:01:40

us.

Good morning. Sunshine is back in

2:01:402:01:45

Pyeongchang and more sunshine for us

today, compared with yesterday.

2:01:452:01:48

There will be showers round and a

bit of snow too, especially in parts

2:01:482:01:52

of Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Your full forecast is coming up in

2:01:522:01:55

15 minutes.

2:01:552:01:58

Good morning.

2:01:582:01:59

First, our main story.

2:01:592:02:00

At least 17 people including

children and teachers have been

2:02:002:02:02

killed after a gun attack at a high

school in Florida.

2:02:022:02:05

Several other people

are being treated in hospital.

2:02:052:02:07

Shortly after the shootings,

Police arrested a 19-year-old

2:02:072:02:09

former pupil who'd been expelled

from the school in Parkland,

2:02:092:02:11

around 50 miles north of Miami.

2:02:112:02:13

From there, Nada Tawfik reports.

2:02:132:02:21

This was supposed to be one

of the safest communities

2:02:222:02:24

in the country.

2:02:242:02:25

In an instant, these students

became helpless targets,

2:02:252:02:27

sheltering in place

and fearing for their lives.

2:02:272:02:29

Officials now suggest this

was a well-planned plot to maximise

2:02:292:02:31

the loss of life.

2:02:312:02:39

Just moments before the end

of the school day, a former student

2:02:412:02:44

reportedly pulled the fire alarm at

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School

2:02:442:02:47

to draw out his

unsuspecting victims.

2:02:472:02:49

There had already been a drill

earlier in the day but confused

2:02:492:02:52

teachers followed procedure

and began to exit the building.

2:02:522:02:54

As soon the fire alarm got hold,

and kids were evacuating,

2:02:542:02:59

I heard five pops.

2:02:592:03:00

I was like, "That's not a drill."

2:03:002:03:02

We never did a drill like that.

2:03:022:03:04

When we started evacuating back

away towards the back,

2:03:042:03:06

towards the the middle school,

I knew it was more than a drill

2:03:062:03:09

because we've never done that.

2:03:092:03:13

Armed with an AR-15 semiautomatic

rifle, he began firing outside

2:03:132:03:16

and then continued inside the school

as panic and chaos erupted.

2:03:162:03:18

Police were warning the shooter

was still at large, even

2:03:182:03:21

as emergency workers rushed

to treat those wounded.

2:03:212:03:27

SWAT teams evacuated

distressed students.

2:03:272:03:30

In a row, some with hands

in the air, others clinging to each

2:03:302:03:36

other for support,

they frantically rushed to safety.

2:03:362:03:38

I see you, I see you, I see you!

2:03:382:03:40

Parents, sick with,

worry, waited for news.

2:03:402:03:42

The suspect was arrested

without incident an hour later

2:03:422:03:44

in a neighbouring city.

2:03:442:03:50

Police identified him as Nikolas

Cruz, who had been expelled.

2:03:502:03:53

He was taken into custody,

I believe, about an hour

2:03:532:03:55

after he left Stoneman Douglas,

after he committed this horrific,

2:03:552:04:02

homicidal, detestable act.

2:04:022:04:03

This is the 18th school shooting

in the United States this year.

2:04:032:04:06

It's a uniquely American epidemic

that has only gotten worse.

2:04:062:04:08

Yet this country is more

divided than ever on how

2:04:082:04:11

to solve the problem.

2:04:112:04:19

Jacob Zuma has resigned

as President of South Africa

2:04:202:04:22

after nine years in power.

2:04:222:04:23

His time in office has been

marred by allegations

2:04:232:04:25

of corruption and his own party,

the ANC had threatened to force him

2:04:252:04:28

out with a vote of no confidence.

2:04:282:04:31

Our reporter Pumza Fihlani

is in Johannesburg.

2:04:312:04:34

Morning. Sunshine is back in

Pyeongchang and more sunshine for us

2:04:342:04:37

today, compared with yesterday.

There will be showers round and a

2:04:372:04:39

bit of snow too, especially in parts

of Scotland and Northern Ireland.

2:04:392:04:42

Your full forecast is coming up in

15 minutes.

2:04:422:04:43

He she has been following events.

This was on the cards but we were

2:04:432:04:47

never sure how smoothly this would

happen or when it would exactly

2:04:472:04:48

happen?

That is right. Right up

until the last moment it seemed that

2:04:482:04:54

the President was staying until he

then eventually decided to announce

2:04:542:04:58

that he has decided to leave office,

that even though he does knots agree

2:04:582:05:03

with what the ANC wants him to do,

he is is a loyal member of party

2:05:032:05:07

Eden Hazard decided to go. To give

you a quick flavour of how that has

2:05:072:05:11

been received here in South Africa,

I have the newspaper which has, you

2:05:112:05:18

can see there finally Zuma falls.

That is a paper that has been

2:05:182:05:25

popular for years, it has been round

for many years and one of the

2:05:252:05:29

biggest business papers here, Zuma

resigns, Yonny Hernandez if you can

2:05:292:05:32

see that, bold headline with a photo

of that raid at the compound of the

2:05:322:05:40

friends of Jacob Zuma. The last one

here, the star newspaper saying

2:05:402:05:45

going going, gone, that kind of

gives a sense of how drawn out the

2:05:452:05:50

process was, but finally, that it

has come to an end.

2:05:502:05:54

Thank you very lunch for your time.

2:05:542:05:55

Thank you very lunch for your time.

2:05:552:05:57

There could be a link between a diet

of ultra-processed foods

2:05:572:06:00

and cancer, that's according

to researchers in France.

2:06:002:06:02

The study of more than 100-thousand

people suggests that those who ate

2:06:022:06:05

more products such as fizzy drinks,

mass produced bread

2:06:052:06:07

and processed meats,

had the highest rates of cancer.

2:06:072:06:09

Here's our Health and science

correspondent James Gallagher.

2:06:092:06:15

Ultra-processed foods include cakes,

chocolate, mass-produced bread,

2:06:152:06:16

crisps and pizza.

2:06:162:06:24

It's delicious temptation and too

much is bad for the waistline.

2:06:282:06:30

We know being overweight

increases the risk of cancer

2:06:302:06:33

but is there something else

about these foods that raises

2:06:332:06:35

the risk even further?

2:06:352:06:38

The study followed 105,000 French

people for five years.

2:06:382:06:40

It suggests increasing amounts

of our diet that are ultra-processed

2:06:402:06:48

by 10% is linked to a 12% increase

in the risk of cancer but even

2:06:482:06:52

the researchers say more work

is needed to establish why such

2:06:522:06:54

foods may increase cancer risk.

2:06:542:06:55

So what should we do?

2:06:552:06:58

A balanced diet, but actually even

more importantly is maintaining

2:06:582:07:01

a healthy weight and if we eat too

many ultra-processed foods,

2:07:012:07:03

then we do pile on the pounds

and although this study didn't look

2:07:032:07:06

closely at weight, we know very

clearly what the links with that

2:07:062:07:09

are and cancer, so I think it's

a warning to us to have a healthy

2:07:092:07:13

diet and be aware of the links

between our diet and cancer.

2:07:132:07:21

Other experts said the term

"ultra-processed food" was so broad,

2:07:212:07:24

it's hard to know what's really

going on, and that other unhealthy

2:07:242:07:27

habits could be muddying the waters.

2:07:272:07:30

It's why the study is being

described as an initial insight

2:07:302:07:32

rather than definitive proof

on the role of ultra-processed

2:07:322:07:35

foods and cancer.

2:07:352:07:41

The government has publicly blamed

Russian military intelligence

2:07:412:07:43

for a cyber attack last

year, which affected

2:07:432:07:45

businesses around the world.

2:07:452:07:46

The Defence Secretary,

Gavin Williamson, said Russia

2:07:462:07:48

was "ripping up the rule book

by undermining democracy

2:07:482:07:50

and weaponising information".

2:07:502:07:51

Russia has denied

responsibility for the attack.

2:07:512:07:59

Don't know if you can see that, bold

headline with a photo of that raid

2:08:012:08:04

at the compound of the friends of

Jacob Zuma. The last one here, the

2:08:042:08:07

star newspaper saying going going,

gone, that kind of gives a sense of

2:08:072:08:09

how drawn out the process was, but

finally, that it has come to an end.

2:08:092:08:12

Thank you very lunch for your time.

Which says faulty household 57

2:08:122:08:15

Palestines are calling 60 fires

every a week in the UK. A third of

2:08:152:08:17

fires are started by washing

machines and tumble driers. It has

2:08:172:08:20

written to ministers to address the

issues.

2:08:202:08:21

issues.

2:08:212:08:23

Dubious financial advisors exploited

former steel workers

2:08:232:08:24

in a pensions mis-selling scandal

according to MPs.

2:08:242:08:28

The Work and Pensions Select

Committee says it cost

2:08:282:08:30

the people involved thousands

and the Financial Conduct Authority

2:08:302:08:33

did too little to protect them.

2:08:332:08:41

Those are the main stories are.

2:08:442:08:48

An inquest is to be opened

into the death of a young woman

2:08:482:08:51

with learning disabilities after BBC

Breakfast highlighted

2:08:512:08:53

concerns about her care.

2:08:532:08:54

Laura Booth died four weeks

after going in to hospital

2:08:542:08:56

for a routine operation.

2:08:562:08:57

The news comes as Mencap,

and the Royal College of Nursing,

2:08:572:09:00

call for compulsory learning

disability training for all

2:09:002:09:02

NHS staff in England.

2:09:022:09:03

Breakfast's Jayne McCubbin reports.

2:09:032:09:10

The house is the same

as the day Laura left.

2:09:102:09:13

Her toys aren't touched.

2:09:132:09:16

We can't move them.

2:09:162:09:17

We just can't.

2:09:172:09:23

We do miss her because she

was our sunshine always.

2:09:232:09:27

We went into the hospital

with our daughter for an eye

2:09:272:09:34

operation and we came out

with a death certificate.

2:09:342:09:38

In September, 2016 their daughter

went to the Royal Hallamshire

2:09:382:09:41

Hospital in Sheffield

for a routine operation.

2:09:412:09:42

She was 21.

2:09:422:09:44

Over the following four weeks

Laura's health deteriorated.

2:09:442:09:50

She wasn't eating and

was taking only fluids.

2:09:502:09:52

The family say they repeatedly asked

the hospital to feed Laura

2:09:522:09:54

intravenously with

what is called a TPN.

2:09:542:09:59

We kept saying to them,

when you going to sort something,

2:09:592:10:01

when are you going to do something?

2:10:012:10:03

This is not right,

she can't stay like this.

2:10:032:10:10

On the day Laura died at the TPN

came but it was too late.

2:10:102:10:13

Her death was put down to natural

causes, but we've spoken

2:10:132:10:16

to an independent expert

who has concerns.

2:10:162:10:18

He believes in malnutrition may have

contributed to Laura's death,

2:10:182:10:21

concerns we've shared

with the coroner, who has come

2:10:212:10:23

in the last 24 hours,

ordered an inquest.

2:10:232:10:30

The hospital say that we are so very

sorry that some aspects of Laura's

2:10:302:10:34

care were not of the standard

we would normally expect,

2:10:342:10:36

and they say that Laura

was being given nutrients in liquid

2:10:362:10:39

form and that was constantly

being reviewed, that Laura's

2:10:392:10:41

condition was so complex it

did have an impact on the way

2:10:412:10:44

in which she was fed.

2:10:442:10:50

In a letter to the family

after Laura's death,

2:10:502:10:53

the hospital said services are not

primarily designed for these

2:10:532:10:56

kinds of patients.

2:10:562:11:04

"We're not dealing with people

like Laura, we're not used to them

2:11:072:11:10

sort of people coming over here."

2:11:102:11:12

When they said that,

I felt horrible.

2:11:122:11:14

This is not right.

2:11:142:11:19

Today, the hospital told us they had

already made changes.

2:11:192:11:22

More specialist nurses,

better trained staff,

2:11:222:11:23

but Mencap, backed by

the Royal College of Nursing

2:11:232:11:26

is calling for mandatory

learning disability training

2:11:262:11:27

for all NHS staff.

2:11:272:11:35

Training like this taking place

in guys hospital with the help

2:11:362:11:39

of Lloyd to better meet

the needs of this community,

2:11:392:11:43

to cut the number of

premature avoidable deaths.

2:11:432:11:46

We also want to have the right equal

health care treatment that we've

2:11:462:11:49

thoroughly deserve and there should

be no discrimination

2:11:492:11:54

or sidelining at all.

2:11:542:11:58

Neither NHS England

or the Department of Health

2:11:582:12:03

would respond to these specific call

for mandatory training,

2:12:032:12:05

both had said they made learning

disability is a national priority

2:12:052:12:08

and would continue

to improve training.

2:12:082:12:11

Laura's parents felt their girl's

life wasn't valued equally.

2:12:112:12:15

What they see is the person that's

in that bed with all

2:12:152:12:18

the disabilities, she can't talk,

she can't walk, this that

2:12:182:12:21

and the other...

2:12:212:12:23

What they didn't see at the back

was that lovely girl that we knew

2:12:232:12:26

what was so happy,

like going out shopping,

2:12:262:12:28

loved going and getting handbags.

2:12:282:12:29

That's what they didn't see,

they just saw her disability.

2:12:292:12:37

Jayne is with us.

2:12:402:12:46

Appliances are calling 60 fires

every a week in the UK. A third of

2:12:462:12:49

fires are started by washing

machines and tumble driers. It has

2:12:492:12:52

written to ministers to address the

issues.

Those are the main stories

2:12:522:12:54

are. They want questions answers. .

They want people to add dress the

2:12:542:12:56

things they saw happen.

Absolutely,

at the start of the year, we pledged

2:12:562:12:59

that we would shine a light on

learning disability issue, menical

2:12:592:13:02

have been looking after that family,

that is why they got in touch with

2:13:022:13:07

us and said, there are concerns

here, we want scrutiny. We took

2:13:072:13:11

those concerns to the coroner

yesterday, at noon, by 2pm the

2:13:112:13:16

Coroner's Office had been back in

touch with Laura's family to say we

2:13:162:13:20

are opening an inquest, it will

start next Tuesday, the family are

2:13:202:13:25

pleased is the wrong word but they

are pleased. They are bereft but

2:13:252:13:30

pleased they want the scrutiny. Why

wasn't it there from the word go?

2:13:302:13:35

The death was attributed to natural

causeser, we don't know what is

2:13:352:13:39

going to happen in the inquest. It

would be wrong to call it. We know

2:13:392:13:46

too many learning disability deaths

are attributed to natural causes,

2:13:462:13:48

this is one of the reasons why today

at a big conference in London Mencap

2:13:482:13:54

will launch this big campaign, three

year campaign so nobody sets foot in

2:13:542:13:58

a hospital to work there without

learning disability training.

2:13:582:14:01

To be clear, Jane, when you are

looking at cases like this, you are

2:14:012:14:05

not criticising, we are not there to

criticise those who are working hard

2:14:052:14:09

to keep people well, to care for

people.

So much brilliant work going

2:14:092:14:12

on.

There are issues to look at in

terms of funding and training

2:14:122:14:16

available to allow these people,

nurses, doctors do the jobs they

2:14:162:14:20

want to do

NHS England and the

department for health say they are

2:14:202:14:26

investing in training, but there are

very real concerns about a

2:14:262:14:30

significant catastrophic decline in

specialist learning disability

2:14:302:14:33

nurses.

For the moment, thank you

very much. #36

2:14:332:14:42

Here's Matt with a look

at this morning's weather.

2:14:422:14:46

It is warming up a little bit?

2:14:462:14:52

Warm is probably too kind a word.

Shower clouds clearing a short while

2:14:522:14:59

ago and the sunshine coming out and

more sunshine around today but we

2:14:592:15:03

have already seen some showers.

Showers at the moment fairly

2:15:032:15:07

isolated, more pushing in towards

the Bristol Channel, lots of showers

2:15:072:15:13

to Northern Ireland and Scotland.

Primarily of snow, giving a further

2:15:132:15:16

covering in places, being blown

around by the gusty winds, pushing

2:15:162:15:23

showers to the East, have already

seen a few earlier ones in

2:15:232:15:29

north-east England, not too many

showers in the south-east and East

2:15:292:15:32

Anglia. Rain showers across parts of

south Wales and south-west England.

2:15:322:15:36

Snow flurries in the Pennines and

Cumbrian Fells. The greater chance

2:15:362:15:42

for snow will be to the north of

Glasgow and Northern Ireland. In the

2:15:422:15:47

Highlands, as much as 10-20

centimetres of snow. Rain showers on

2:15:472:15:52

the coast. Temperature profile, the

blue colour is staying below

2:15:522:15:57

freezing weather mountains. For

many, a milder day than of late.

2:15:572:16:03

With the Sun gaining strength, it

should not feel too bad at all.

2:16:032:16:07

Tonight, clear skies, showers in the

West, leading to an ice risk as

2:16:072:16:11

temperatures dropped close to if not

below freezing tomorrow morning.

2:16:112:16:16

Tonight, you might be lucky,

Scotland, Northern Ireland, the

2:16:162:16:22

chance potentially of seeing the old

Laura

2:16:222:16:27

chance potentially of seeing the old

Laura, and a small chance of seeing

2:16:272:16:29

it with clear skies -- seeing the

northern lights. But the cloud will

2:16:292:16:36

come and go, as it will do tomorrow,

and the showers merging into longer

2:16:362:16:41

spells of rain, not as much snow

tomorrow because temperatures will

2:16:412:16:46

be lifting. The bulk of the country,

a dry day on Friday, showers in the

2:16:462:16:52

West to begin with, best of the

brightness in eastern areas.

2:16:522:16:56

Temperatures of around 7-10d. Cool

start of the weekend on Saturday

2:16:562:17:01

with mist and fog patches in the

south. A weak weather in Scotland on

2:17:012:17:10

Saturday, from Northern Ireland and

North Wales potentially as well. It

2:17:102:17:14

could be damp, drizzly and murky in

places. To the north, and to the

2:17:142:17:19

south, sunshine. Staying mild on

Sunday. The big question Mark is how

2:17:192:17:25

active the next weather system is.

As it looks at the moment, England

2:17:252:17:32

and Wales could see cloud. Much of

Scotland and Northern Ireland

2:17:322:17:35

looking dry, the rain band may be

further north, but even if it isn't,

2:17:352:17:43

temperatures on Sunday around 9-12d,

warmer than it has been of late.

2:17:432:17:51

What was the scientific explanation?

The sun is not... Fluctuations,

2:17:512:18:01

solar flares, highly charged

particles through the atmosphere

2:18:012:18:06

towards us, and as it reaches our

atmosphere, it interrupts with

2:18:062:18:10

oxygen and nitrogen molecules and

that causes the colours. They get

2:18:102:18:16

them excited, gives them a tickle,

they shine different colours of

2:18:162:18:20

light, green, yellow, when it is

oxygen, red and purple when it is

2:18:202:18:24

nitrogen.

I will put that on my phone and

2:18:242:18:27

record it and play it to myself

whenever I want to smile!

2:18:272:18:31

Marvellous.

2:18:312:18:35

Marvellous. Some explaining to do.

This is very close to people's

2:18:362:18:40

hearts, what you might expect to get

in your wage packet. Good news for

2:18:402:18:44

the change as far as pay is

concerned. I have been saying for so

2:18:442:18:48

long we're not getting pay rises,

news from the Bank of England,

2:18:482:18:53

spoken to employers and look at

minimum wage data and it has taken

2:18:532:18:57

together and it is in line for on

average the best pay rise in ten

2:18:572:19:01

years.

We all know pay has been

pretty static of late and that is

2:19:012:19:05

because employers have not felt the

need to offer more to hang onto good

2:19:052:19:09

staff or attract them, but now the

minimum wage is going up so they

2:19:092:19:13

will get an increase and also for

everyone else in the private sector,

2:19:132:19:17

we will come onto that in the

second, they are saying employees

2:19:172:19:21

are now in a position where they

need to keep the people they have

2:19:212:19:24

got because they can move elsewhere

so finally they are having to pay

2:19:242:19:27

more to keep them happy. That

average pay rise could be 3%, that

2:19:272:19:32

would mean it is in line or

exceeding inflation and for so long

2:19:322:19:36

prices have going up and wages by

less, so in real terms, we have felt

2:19:362:19:43

much worse off. Now it might get to

balance will we might feel better.

2:19:432:19:47

The caveat of course is public

sector, still pay cap, anyone

2:19:472:19:51

working in the public sector, most

apartments facing the 1% pay cut, so

2:19:512:19:56

we are just talking about the

private sector. But nonetheless,

2:19:562:19:59

some good news.

There is still a lot

in terms of when you see inflation

2:19:592:20:06

go up and people say cost of living

is going up, can we have a pay rise?

2:20:062:20:12

It usually takes at least a year, 18

months to feedback.

This plays into

2:20:122:20:16

interest rates as well. If wages

start going up, inflation is still

2:20:162:20:21

pretty high, the Bank of England

says, I will raise interest rates,

2:20:212:20:27

cooling the economy, making it more

attractive to save, potentially one

2:20:272:20:35

or two rate rises this year. This

suggests the economy is on the mend

2:20:352:20:39

but it is about getting everything

in balance.

Thank you very much.

2:20:392:20:45

Children, some as young as 12,

are being banned from driving before

2:20:452:20:48

they are legally old enough to get

behind the wheel of a car.

2:20:482:20:51

The BBC has discovered the number

of children aged 16 and under

2:20:512:20:54

who have been disqualified

from driving has risen by almost

2:20:542:20:58

50% over the past four years.

2:20:582:20:59

Phil Bodmer has been to meet

the sisters of a young boy

2:20:592:21:02

who was killed by a teenager

who was driving illegally.

2:21:022:21:07

The killed him and we

didn't get to see him...

2:21:072:21:13

Well, we saw him, but we had

to look through a window.

2:21:132:21:16

A window, we couldn't touch him.

2:21:162:21:18

We couldn't touch him,

we couldn't see him,

2:21:182:21:24

it was a horror movie.

2:21:242:21:26

Distraught sisters describing

the agony of losing their

2:21:262:21:28

15-year-old brother

in a fatal car crash.

2:21:282:21:29

Darnell Harte was killed alongside

two other children and two men.

2:21:292:21:32

They were passengers in a stolen car

which hit a tree at high speed

2:21:322:21:36

in Leeds last November.

2:21:362:21:37

A 15-year-old boy was jailed for 4.5

years for dangerous driving,

2:21:372:21:39

but he's far from alone

in being an underage driver.

2:21:392:21:44

I was putting people in danger.

2:21:442:21:47

I know that's other people's life,

you know, it matters

2:21:472:21:49

to another family.

2:21:492:21:56

Mikey started driving on the streets

of Bradford aged 16,

2:21:562:21:59

he and his friends used to hire

a car to take out onto the roads.

2:21:592:22:02

If there a group of us, you know,

we'll all chip in and we'll let

2:22:022:22:06

an older person know we want a car

and they will get a car from someone

2:22:062:22:10

else and bring it to us.

2:22:102:22:11

I do get a rush, you know,

when I want to put my foot down

2:22:112:22:15

and go crazy.

2:22:152:22:16

In 2014, almost 700

children aged 16 and under

2:22:162:22:18

were disqualified from driving.

2:22:182:22:20

However, last year, that number had

risen to more than 1,000,

2:22:202:22:22

an increase of 47%.

2:22:222:22:26

This is the tip of the iceberg

because of course they have to be

2:22:262:22:30

caught breaking the law in this way

and inevitably many won't be,

2:22:302:22:33

they will get away scot-free.

2:22:332:22:35

Elyse and Natasha are now calling

for tougher jail terms.

2:22:352:22:38

The Minister of Justice said it

will bring forward changes

2:22:382:22:46

to the law as soon as

an parliamentary time allows.

2:22:482:22:50

Phil Bodmer, BBC News.

2:22:502:22:51

Tim Shalcross is from

the charity, IAM RoadSmart.

2:22:512:22:53

He joins us now.

2:22:532:22:54

It is harrowing joining from the

families -- hearing from the

2:22:542:22:59

families. The story has thrown up

odd, to put it mildly, situations.

2:22:592:23:04

Major major offence, 13-year-old is

banned from driving but they serve

2:23:042:23:14

it at a time when they cannot drive

in a way because they are under 17.

2:23:142:23:19

That is correct. People say, what is

the deterrent of that? If you switch

2:23:192:23:25

around and look at it from the other

point of view, OK, let us make the

2:23:252:23:29

band take effect from when they are

entitled to get a licence, from 17,

2:23:292:23:34

that is suspending implementation of

the sentence that the number of

2:23:342:23:38

years which is something that is

alien to UK law -- the ban take

2:23:382:23:43

effect. Even if you did that, there

in mind these are people who already

2:23:432:23:50

have little or no respect for the

law otherwise they would not be

2:23:502:23:54

breaking it and all you do at the

age of 17, OK, I will carry on

2:23:542:23:58

driving without a license, I will

carry on doing it now I did it

2:23:582:24:03

before. You create a body of people

who were flouting the law at 17 as

2:24:032:24:07

well as 30.

If a ban when they are

not legally allowed to drive on the

2:24:072:24:15

weight is inappropriate or

ineffective, shall we say, there is

2:24:152:24:17

an assumption that could be, what is

the answer?

You must think about how

2:24:172:24:24

these people are caught. Some

tragically as a result of crashing

2:24:242:24:28

the car because they have not had

training but also the police will

2:24:282:24:31

have had to have noticed some kind

of abnormal behaviour, driving

2:24:312:24:37

erratically, not surprising, not

trained to drive a car, going

2:24:372:24:41

through red lights, speeding

commonly, something will bring them

2:24:412:24:44

to the attention of police, and

there is often another crime

2:24:442:24:47

involved, it might be drugs,

alcohol, even though they are

2:24:472:24:52

underage, theft, stealing the

2:24:522:24:59

underage, theft, stealing the car to

drive it. There will be another

2:24:592:25:00

punishment as well. But the biggest

deterrent to committing a crime for

2:25:002:25:03

all of us, frankly, is the fear of

getting caught and there was no

2:25:032:25:06

doubt the cut in police numbers,

visible police on the road, it makes

2:25:062:25:09

it more likely people think, might

as well do it, no police around.

You

2:25:092:25:14

are touching an adult rationale to

things. The figures show in 2017, 33

2:25:142:25:23

disqualifications for children aged

13. At the age of 13, you are

2:25:232:25:26

unlikely to be doing the kind of

rational you are talking about.

2:25:262:25:31

Well, you know, there are lots of

places where people can get driving

2:25:312:25:38

experience in a safe environment

perfectly legally off the road under

2:25:382:25:40

the age of 17.

That would take the

excitement out of it?

That is the

2:25:402:25:46

problem. These people are thrill

seekers. There are lots of places

2:25:462:25:50

across the nation where you can book

lessons, quite exciting lessons in

2:25:502:25:55

some cases, there is an under 17s

car club, not just driving a car

2:25:552:26:01

around a car park, they take you to

off-road places...

Those are

2:26:012:26:06

expensive, let us be honest.

There

is a price attached to them and it

2:26:062:26:10

will not appeal to the kind of

people that take a car or indulged

2:26:102:26:15

in illegal behaviour.

There is also

the issue, people think, I will not

2:26:152:26:19

reward someone for breaking the law,

why should these kids be rewarded

2:26:192:26:23

with exciting driving schools?

I am

not suggesting we do that. If people

2:26:232:26:29

are really keen on driving, which is

a great thing, keen on learning to

2:26:292:26:35

drive and getting experience at an

early age, that is good because it

2:26:352:26:40

ingrained is driving into you, but

sadly, they do have cost attached

2:26:402:26:46

and it will not be the kind of

thrill like this really are seeking,

2:26:462:26:51

but there is no doubt, going back to

it, the presence of highly visible

2:26:512:26:55

police on the streets is a powerful

deterrent to all of us for

2:26:552:26:59

committing any kind of offence and

that will be good.

Thank you very

2:26:592:27:04

much for speaking to us.

2:27:042:30:24

Plenty more on our website

at the usual address.

2:30:242:30:26

Now though it's back

to Charlie and Naga.

2:30:262:30:29

Hello, this is Breakfast with

Naga Munchetty and Charlie Stayt.

2:30:322:30:38

At least 17 people including

children and teachers have been

2:30:382:30:42

killed after a gun attack

at a high school in Florida.

2:30:422:30:44

Several other people

are being treated in hospital.

2:30:442:30:47

Shortly after the shootings,

police arrested a 19-year-old former

2:30:472:30:49

pupil who'd been expelled

from the school in Parkland,

2:30:492:30:51

around 50 miles north of Miami.

2:30:512:30:55

Earlier on Breakfast,

we heard from a local journalist

2:30:552:30:57

who was at the scene and spoke

to a student who had

2:30:572:31:00

fled from the school

when he heard shots being fired.

2:31:002:31:05

He eventually got to

2:31:062:31:07

He eventually got to safety and

linked up with his parents, however

2:31:072:31:09

his twin sister was still inside so

it took a little bit of time before

2:31:092:31:15

those parents could be reunited with

her. Speaking to his father,

2:31:152:31:20

speaking to the father of those

children, he essentially told me

2:31:202:31:24

that it has become a standard line,

people tend to say now, we never

2:31:242:31:28

think it will happen here, and then

it does.

2:31:282:31:37

The ANC leader Cyril Romeu poser

will be sworn in as South Africa's

2:31:372:31:41

new president later today following

the resignation of Jacob Zuma, who

2:31:412:31:45

stepped down last night. Jacob Zuma

resigned as president of South

2:31:452:31:49

Africa after nine years in power.

Following pressure from his party.

2:31:492:31:54

He had been facing a vote of no

confidence in Parliament if he did

2:31:542:31:58

not agree to quit.

2:31:582:32:00

The consumption of highly-processed

foods, including cakes,

2:32:002:32:01

chicken nuggets and mass-produced

bread is linked to the risk

2:32:012:32:04

of cancer, according

to researchers in France.

2:32:042:32:06

The study of more than 100,000

people is published

2:32:062:32:08

in the British Medical Journal.

2:32:082:32:09

Experts have expressed caution,

but continue to advise eating

2:32:092:32:13

a healthy, balanced diet.

2:32:132:32:17

The Government has publicly blamed

Russian military intelligence

2:32:172:32:21

for a cyber attack last year

which affected

2:32:212:32:23

businesses around the world.

2:32:232:32:24

The Defence Secretary,

Gavin Williamson, said Russia

2:32:242:32:26

was "ripping up the rule book

by undermining democracy

2:32:262:32:28

and weaponising information".

2:32:282:32:32

Russia has denied

responsibility for the attack.

2:32:322:32:34

Dubious financial advisors exploited

former steel workers

2:32:342:32:38

in a pensions mis-selling

scandal, according to MPs.

2:32:382:32:42

The Work and Pensions Select

Committee says it cost the people

2:32:422:32:45

involved thousands of pounds,

and that the Financial Conduct

2:32:452:32:47

Authority did too little to protect

them after the closure

2:32:472:32:49

of the British Steel

Pension Scheme.

2:32:492:32:56

If you have ever seen a baby and

said, so cute, I could eat you up!

2:32:562:33:02

Well, here is what you could eat and

not get into trouble for!

2:33:022:33:06

The Cape babies are the ones in the

middle and the ones either side are

2:33:062:33:10

the real children, if you have not

gathered battle ready! Lara Mason is

2:33:102:33:15

the cake maker and spent more than

100 hours crafting versions of her

2:33:152:33:19

own daughters, Lily and Lila. 44

eggs, apparently, in total, two

2:33:192:33:28

killers of flour, four kilos of

buttercream.

2:33:282:33:32

Extraordinary. All I will say is,

how do you cut that cake? It is a

2:33:322:33:37

tricky one.

I am amazed they stayed intact with

2:33:372:33:41

the children near them because you

would think the first thing they

2:33:412:33:44

would do would eat something. Unless

they thought they were not Kate.

2:33:442:33:52

Just grabbing an arm and chewing on

it! Matt will have the weather in

2:33:522:33:57

ten minutes, first, let's see what

else is coming up...

2:33:572:34:03

She wowed Simon Cowell

on Britain's Got Talent -

2:34:032:34:06

young magician Issy Simpson

will tell us why she needs a head

2:34:062:34:09

for heights for her latest illusion.

2:34:092:34:17

Antimo Magnotta was the pianist

on board the Costa Concordia cruise

2:34:182:34:21

ship which sank six years ago.

2:34:212:34:23

He'll tell us how that tragic

night changed shaped

2:34:232:34:25

the sound of his music.

2:34:252:34:30

Visually impaired skier

Millie Knight will tell us

2:34:302:34:32

why it is all downhill

from here if she wants

2:34:322:34:37

to realise her dream

as she prepares to go for gold

2:34:372:34:40

at next month's Winter

Paralympics in Pyeongchang.

2:34:402:34:43

We will have a bit more on that in a

few minutes.

2:34:432:34:48

You have experienced it first hand?

Yes, with her guide, listening to

2:34:482:34:53

the instructions and the sound of

the ice and the snow.

2:34:532:34:57

Word you actually skiing? Yes, but

not going as fast as she would! It

2:34:572:35:02

is surreal, you don't know if you

were moving or not, not with the

2:35:022:35:05

speed I was at! But it is all

happening at the moment, the latest

2:35:052:35:10

British interest is Amanda Lightfoot

in the biathlon.

2:35:102:35:12

Great name!

You have to go down, came at a

2:35:122:35:18

target as small as the inside of a

toilet roll, and it comes off your

2:35:182:35:21

time if you miss.

Say that again? 50 metres...

2:35:212:35:25

Cross-country skiing, then lie down,

fire at a target 50 metres away the

2:35:252:35:32

size of the inside of a toilet roll.

So, good luck to Amanda. But we all

2:35:322:35:37

talking about Dom Parsons who could

get Britain's first medal in the

2:35:372:35:40

games in the early hours of tomorrow

morning after a great competition

2:35:402:35:44

performance in the first runs.

2:35:442:35:45

Let's cross live to Katherine Downes

who's live in Pyeongchang

2:35:452:35:47

for us this morning.

2:35:472:35:53

Dana is the Phoenix snow park where

the sliding Centre is, where the

2:35:532:35:56

focus will be in the early hours, I

2:30am we should know if Dom Parsons

2:35:562:36:00

has got a medal for Great Britain,

the margins are so fine committee is

2:36:002:36:04

in fourth at the moment, just having

to make up three hundredths of a

2:36:042:36:09

second, incredible how tense that

will be. I was just reading his

2:36:092:36:16

Twitter account, saying he will be

watching TV, reading books, but how

2:36:162:36:19

on earth will he not be able to

think all night long of what will

2:36:192:36:22

happen tomorrow?!

I know, he has put himself into a

2:36:222:36:26

fantastic position, laying down the

runs of his career. In the Olympic

2:36:262:36:30

Games as well, what a time to

produce them from Dom Parsons, GB's

2:36:302:36:35

skeleton slider, the lead skeleton

slider because we have another in

2:36:352:36:39

the heats as well in 12th position

at the moment so we could have two

2:36:392:36:43

finishing in the top ten at the

sliding centre which is just over my

2:36:432:36:46

right shoulder. You can see the top

of it at the top of the hill, the

2:36:462:36:54

Quorn turning and twisting down the

side of the mountain over there to

2:36:542:36:56

the right-hand side, but three

hundredths of a second of a bronze

2:36:562:36:59

medal position, Dom Parsons, after

the first two heats. Brilliant runs

2:36:592:37:04

from him so now he has to stay calm,

stay focused overnight with runs

2:37:042:37:08

three and four to come tomorrow as

he goes for what would be great

2:37:082:37:12

Britain's first medal of these

games. No pressure, then!

2:37:122:37:19

A few mistakes on the first one,

probably a bit of race tension,

2:37:192:37:23

ended up over driving a couple of

bits, ended up of lime, it is what

2:37:232:37:27

it is. I am still in the mix, so I

will take that.

2:37:272:37:33

So, Dom Parsons needs to hold his

nerve. In the same way that the

2:37:332:37:41

men's curling team needed to hold

their nerve against Japan, they took

2:37:412:37:47

it 6-5. They beat Switzerland in the

opening match then lost to the

2:37:472:37:51

defending champions Canada yesterday

so back on track for Kyle Smith, the

2:37:512:37:54

skipper of the team, and his men, as

they chase another Olympic medal,

2:37:542:38:00

big shoes to fill after Great

Britain's men won silver in Sochi

2:38:002:38:03

last time around. Great Britain's

women won bronze last time around

2:38:032:38:10

but they have lost their match to

the USA, a shock loss for Great

2:38:102:38:16

Britain's women. They take on China

later today so they could make up

2:38:162:38:21

some ground there. They beat the

Olympic athletes from Russia

2:38:212:38:27

yesterday, so they are back in

action against China this morning at

2:38:272:38:31

about 11:05am. The wind has dropped,

the temperature with it, the

2:38:312:38:34

sunshine is out and that means the

Alpine ski can probably get going

2:38:342:38:40

today and Norway's athlete became

the oldest Olympic champion that

2:38:402:38:47

Alpine skiing have ever seen, he

just missed out on the medals in

2:38:472:38:50

Sochi so he had a point to prove

coming into the games, he won the

2:38:502:38:55

men's downhill, one of the blue with

and events of the Olympic Games, a

2:38:552:38:58

bit like the men's 100 metres in the

summer games.

2:38:582:39:05

summer games. No surprises at all

that Mikaela Shiffrin won her first

2:39:072:39:13

Olympic medal in such a happy age of

just 18 and could be on 44 macro

2:39:132:39:18

gold medals in these games, she won

the women's giant slalom and if she

2:39:182:39:22

does with those four medals then it

would be the most of any Alpine

2:39:222:39:26

skier at any games in history so the

USA superstars, we saw Shaun Wright

2:39:262:39:32

in the half pipe, Claire Whee Kim in

the half pipe, they really are

2:39:322:39:35

delivering in these games, turning

out to be a very good few weeks but

2:39:352:39:38

the USA.

Indeed, thank you very much indeed.

2:39:382:39:44

Away from Pyeongchang,

there was another hugely impressive

2:39:442:39:47

performance from an English side

in the Champions League.

2:39:472:39:49

It was Liverpools first

game in the knock-out

2:39:492:39:51

stages for nine years,

and they marked

2:39:512:39:53

the occasion in style.

2:39:532:39:55

A hat-trick from Sadio Mane helped

them to a 5-0 away win

2:39:552:39:58

against Portuguese side Porto.

2:39:582:40:06

Let's get back to the Winter

Olympics, and if anyone knows what

2:40:072:40:10

will be going to Dom Parsons' my

definite, it is Chemmy Alcott. He

2:40:102:40:16

says he will watch TV and read a

book but how will he be able to take

2:40:162:40:20

his mind of those runs in the early

hours of tomorrow morning?

2:40:202:40:24

He's incredible, he went under the

radar because we talked about was

2:40:242:40:28

Lizzie, Laura started doing well, so

he could just slide in there and

2:40:282:40:32

have these times, and I think he's

right, distraction. We have seen the

2:40:322:40:37

distractions in the Olympic Village,

Massad chairs, so many games for

2:40:372:40:39

them to play and that is what he

2:40:392:40:50

needs to do.

If he starts thinking

about how big and life changing this

2:41:002:41:03

could be then the pressure will

start to sink in so I think he is

2:41:032:41:07

right, it has been amazing how he

has been sliding. Forget all the

2:41:072:41:08

talk about the suits, although could

that have been a distraction member

2:41:082:41:11

by the British team to get the other

teams focusing on the suits rather

2:41:112:41:14

than their own performance?

I think

it was the other athletes playing

2:41:142:41:16

mind games, we would never break

boundaries with that, we are at the

2:41:162:41:19

forefront of science in the sport,

UK Sport money is going into the

2:41:192:41:21

research and I think they wanted to

rattle our athletes because they

2:41:212:41:24

were performing so well on the

training runs. It has not worked

2:41:242:41:26

because Dom is still out there doing

so well and I think it was a bit of

2:41:262:41:29

a dirty tactic.

Has it always been

that cut-throat?

This is the

2:41:292:41:32

Olympics, everyone wants to win and

you have to be mentally the

2:41:322:41:34

strongest, physically the strongest,

and the best on the day.

You are

2:41:342:41:37

friends, though, with other teams?

You do get on? I was out there on my

2:41:372:41:43

own so I talked to everyone, I

wanted everyone to be my friend, so

2:41:432:41:47

I was slightly different! But I did

have a girl tried to put me off my

2:41:472:41:50

game, I crashed on a jump and the

next time we went to that job she

2:41:502:41:54

said, that looks scary, how are you

feeling? Thanks for bringing that

2:41:542:42:01

up! But that is part of the

strength, Alpine winter sports are

2:42:012:42:03

scary, dangerous, you have to have a

few screws loose anyway.

Alex

2:42:032:42:07

Dilley, I know we are building up to

tomorrow, but she tried to be

2:42:072:42:14

ambitious and brave but in the end

it cost her?

She is on the cusp of

2:42:142:42:18

making it and being big-time and she

is so strong, she laid the skis

2:42:182:42:23

over, just a bit too much pressure

on the end of the turn, spoke out

2:42:232:42:26

and you can see how I see it is by

how long she falls but she had to go

2:42:262:42:31

forward and take risks and

unfortunately today they did not pay

2:42:312:42:34

off. She is in the slalom as well

with Charlie, but it is brutal.

The

2:42:342:42:42

pictures are amazing, UCB 's crashes

but I don't think it comes across

2:42:422:42:45

how steep it is, it is hard on the

TV cameras, it is incredibly steep.

2:42:452:42:49

You do not ball that long and that

fussed if it is that, if it is that

2:42:492:42:53

you stop. 65% is the steepest part

of the downhill. We love it, though,

2:42:532:42:59

the difference in the Touraine. The

downhill has got tunnels underneath

2:42:592:43:02

it which is how the terrain is built

in so they built the tunnel so that

2:43:022:43:07

you get the man-made terrain roles.

Amazing. You are going out there?

2:43:072:43:17

Going out next week, really excited

to have the atmosphere here where I

2:43:172:43:21

have got into every Olympic sport

and to go out there and specialise

2:43:212:43:24

in the Alpine and support my friend

Dave.

Big, big days ahead.

2:43:242:43:31

Fingers crossed.

2:43:312:43:38

You will be pleased to know it is

not as chilly as it is in

2:43:382:43:41

Pyeongchang at the moment!

And it warms up a little bit more

2:43:412:43:45

over the next few days. A big

difference of yesterday, a bit more

2:43:452:43:49

sunshine around but we have still

got some wintry showers and they

2:43:492:43:51

will give a covering of snow in

Scotland

2:43:512:43:54

will give a covering of snow in

Scotland and Northern Ireland in

2:43:542:43:54

particular. Looking at whether

showers have been so far, the early

2:43:542:44:00

ones in the North of England have

pushed into the sea, but you will

2:44:002:44:05

notice western Scotland and Northern

Ireland continued to push in and

2:44:052:44:09

with it we could see a covering of

snow in places blown around by gusty

2:44:092:44:14

wind. A blustery day across the

board and it will take a few showers

2:44:142:44:17

eastwards through the day but most

will be tried. A bit more detail for

2:44:172:44:22

the start of the afternoon, we will

see one or two showers around

2:44:222:44:28

southern coastal counties, the odd

heavy one but most places will avoid

2:44:282:44:31

them, isolated wintry showers across

the hills of Wales, the tops of the

2:44:312:44:37

Pennines, the Cumbrian fells, parts

of Northern Ireland and the

2:44:372:44:41

Highlands might see some snow as

well, the Highlands could see as

2:44:412:44:44

much as 20 centimetres of snow

through the day. As you can see on

2:44:442:44:48

the temperatures, the blue colours

shows that it stays subzero on the

2:44:482:44:52

mountains, and if you add the wind

as well it is a cold day but for

2:44:522:44:56

many it is ten and 11 across the

south of the country. Tonight in the

2:44:562:44:59

south the wind will fall, a few

showers in the West, more likely to

2:44:592:45:03

see a frost tonight than last night,

because of those showers around so

2:45:032:45:07

be prepared because it could be icy

tomorrow morning. There is a chance,

2:45:072:45:13

only a chance, but tonight in

Scotland and Northern Ireland you

2:45:132:45:16

might see the aurora borealis. This

shows where the greatest chance of

2:45:162:45:19

seeing it is, the red colour is the

greatest chance. So if the skies are

2:45:192:45:27

clear for long enough there is a

possibility of seeing some of the

2:45:272:45:30

aurora borealis. But the cloud will

come and go through the night as it

2:45:302:45:34

will on Friday across western

Scotland and Northern Ireland.

2:45:342:45:36

Outbreaks of rain here and there,

snow on the top of the hills but not

2:45:362:45:40

as much as recent days, the wind

listing battle-macro lifting the

2:45:402:45:44

temperatures in Scotland and

Northern Ireland. A dry day for many

2:45:442:45:48

tomorrow but into the weekend after

some early showers across western

2:45:482:45:53

areas, watching a zone of cloud push

into Northern Ireland, southern

2:45:532:45:56

Scotland, northern England, we will

see damp and drizzly conditions on

2:45:562:46:01

Saturday, nothing overly wet, to the

North some sunshine, to the south

2:46:012:46:04

some sunshine, but for Sunday

overall cloudier and for England and

2:46:042:46:08

Wales a greater chance of some rain.

More on that tomorrow morning from

2:46:082:46:11

6am.

We see you tomorrow as well?

2:46:112:46:15

Excellent.

Had he got a magic trick for us now?

2:46:152:46:20

A magic trick?!

The disappearing forecaster!

2:46:202:46:26

Brilliant.

2:46:262:46:32

She managed to cast

a spell on the judges

2:46:322:46:34

of Britain's Got Talent last year,

including the hard to impress

2:46:342:46:37

Simon Cowell, with her seemingly

impossible magic abilities.

2:46:372:46:40

Now, Nine year-old Issy Simpson,

is going to be the youngest ever

2:46:402:46:43

headline act at the world's biggest

magic convention in

2:46:432:46:45

Blackpool tomorrow.

2:46:452:46:50

She is with us. Shall we show

everyone your tricks. Let's go...

2:46:502:47:04

The vanishing statue of liberty

illusion. Remember, no camera

2:47:042:47:07

tricks. Watch.

2:47:072:47:14

Here is a magic trick using this

bottle of water, and this bag.

2:47:162:47:21

Watch.

2:47:212:47:26

You probably think there is another

bottle inside this bag. Well, you're

2:47:322:47:36

right.

2:47:362:47:46

Inside this bag of got two coins. A

5p and a £2. Think of one. Got one?

2:47:502:47:59

Watch.

2:47:592:48:02

Where did that bottle go?

A magician

never tells their secrets. I always

2:48:052:48:15

stick to the rules.

Is there a hole

in the table?

No.

A lot of people

2:48:152:48:22

don't realise, when you were

training to be in this -- training

2:48:222:48:27

to be a magician it's a lot.

Practice makes perfect, yes.

How

2:48:272:48:32

much time do you spent practising?

I

spent quite a lot of time.

As well

2:48:322:48:38

as your schoolwork and everything.

He managed to impress Simon Cowell.

2:48:382:48:44

Yes, it was... I thought it was

going to be quite hard, but it

2:48:442:48:48

actually wasn't!

How come you are so

good at magic? Your grandad has come

2:48:482:48:53

with you today, hasn't he?

Yes.

He

does some, doesn't he?

He does lots.

2:48:532:49:01

He taught me everything. He inspired

me to do the magic and also Harry

2:49:012:49:06

Potter inspired me, as well.

You

have a link with Harry Potter, or

2:49:062:49:09

Daniel Radcliffe, haven't you?

His

manager is my manager.

How did that

2:49:092:49:15

happen?

Well, I don't... Well, we

went to a few meetings with her and

2:49:152:49:24

she decided to sign me up.

Let's

hope it leads to big things. Already

2:49:242:49:28

you are on the sofa, and it doesn't

get much bigger.

2:49:282:49:31

You are going to do the magic for us

now, are you?

Yes.

What's going to

2:49:312:49:35

happen?

You have a pack of cards.

I'm going

2:49:352:49:39

to show you a card trick. It is a

card trick like no other. Charlie,

2:49:392:49:46

wait, I'm going to turn them face

down, and I would like you to touch

2:49:462:49:49

the back of any card.

Any card that

all?

Yes.

Do it that way so everyone

2:49:492:49:54

can see.

I'll go with this one

there. That one?

Yes, what's

2:49:542:50:01

happening now?

I would like you to

look at the card, remember it, and

2:50:012:50:06

what ever you do, do not show me.

Can I show Naga?

Yes.

Can I show the

2:50:062:50:15

camera? You will have to look that

way.

Done?

Yes. What do I do with it

2:50:152:50:26

now?

Keep it. Would you be impressed

if I told you that that card was

2:50:262:50:33

printed on my T-shirt.

That would be

extraordinary. Well, it's got to be

2:50:332:50:37

one of these.

CHUCKLES

2:50:372:50:41

Do you know how that one was done?

For the first time, Charlie, what

2:50:412:50:47

was the card?

Do I tell you now?

Yes.

It's the four of diamonds.

The

2:50:472:50:54

four of diamonds...

And there it is.

Simon Cowell is involved in this

2:50:542:51:04

trick and he is holding the card.

Yes.

Have we ever had Simon Cowell

2:51:042:51:10

on the sofa?

Not that I can remember.

2:51:102:51:12

There you go, now we have. How long

did it take you to learn that one?

I

2:51:122:51:18

did it on

2:51:182:51:23

did it on Britain's Got Talent. That

was in the audition. It took two

2:51:232:51:27

weeks.

If you were somebody like me,

straightaway I want to know how that

2:51:272:51:32

worked, I'm trying to work it out,

I'm looking at your jacket, trying

2:51:322:51:36

to work it out.

A magician never

tells their secrets.

You are sworn

2:51:362:51:41

to secrecy.

Also, we like the idea of magic.

2:51:412:51:46

It's nice to have secrets.

Well done. Thanks very much. I will

2:51:462:51:52

give you the card back.

Thank you.

Thank you.

2:51:522:51:59

Antimo Magnotta was the pianist

on board the Costa Concordia cruise

2:51:592:52:02

ship when it sank six years ago.

2:52:022:52:03

Unlike some of his fellow

musicians, he survived

2:52:032:52:05

but lost his possessions,

career and ultimately his marriage.

2:52:052:52:08

Now, he is back behind the piano

and has written songs

2:52:082:52:11

dedicated to the victims.

2:52:112:52:14

We'll speak to Antimo in a moment,

but first, let's remind

2:52:142:52:16

ourselves of what happened.

2:52:162:52:19

Antimo joins us now...

2:53:212:53:23

Good morning. For everyone listening

to that piece of music it is called

2:53:232:53:31

32, the number 32 represented the

number of people who died on the

2:53:312:53:35

Costa Concordia. How have you

translated that into music?

Very

2:53:352:53:39

nice question. Basically, 32 is a

tribute to the memory of the 32

2:53:392:53:46

victims. Among them, two friends of

mine, two fellow musicians. The main

2:53:462:53:54

melody consists of 32 notes. The

main melody played by the Right hon.

2:53:542:54:00

And each and every note is a tribute

to a victim. -- by the right hand.

2:54:002:54:06

That must have been an emotional

piece to compose.

It is still

2:54:062:54:10

emotional to play because I need to

keep control. It moves me, it still

2:54:102:54:14

moves me after some years now.

Take

us through, if you would, because

2:54:142:54:20

seeing those pictures again, for

you, it must take you back to that

2:54:202:54:25

moment. You were playing your piano,

just explain, you were playing in a

2:54:252:54:29

ballroom area, you were playing the

piano, and what was the first sign

2:54:292:54:33

you had something was going wrong?

I

was on the back of the ship.

2:54:332:54:39

Performing my piano show for a

handful of very well-dressed people.

2:54:392:54:48

I was fully immersed into my routine

as I had been doing for nearly 17

2:54:482:54:52

years. All of a sudden, at 9:42pm,

the Costa Concordia took a sudden

2:54:522:54:59

swerve to the left and I fell off my

bench. I was playing my piano. A

2:54:592:55:06

very cinematic vision, actually. And

that was the beginning of chaos,

2:55:062:55:11

actually. I started going along the

corridors of the ship, expecting

2:55:112:55:19

some instructions. But nothing.

Very

quickly, you described it as an

2:55:192:55:30

acute angle.

It was about 85

degrees. The most difficult thing

2:55:302:55:33

was walking because the floor became

the war.

How did you get off the

2:55:332:55:37

ship?

It took six hours. After the

general emergency signal on board

2:55:372:55:44

was founded by reached my master

station, because I was a crew

2:55:442:55:48

member, so I had to face my duties

as a crew member, right? I was in

2:55:482:55:54

charge of a roll call for 25 people.

Some of them were missing. At that

2:55:542:56:02

moment I would expect an officer to

take myself and my people to our

2:56:022:56:07

designated liferaft. Nobody showed

up to me. So we were pretty much

2:56:072:56:15

abandoned. My designated liferaft

was already underwater. Because of

2:56:152:56:22

the tilting. It was tilted upwards.

Clearly a hugely involved story.

2:56:222:56:34

Finish it off for us, how did you

make your way to safety?

I managed

2:56:342:56:39

to escape through a broken

embarkation gate. I found myself on

2:56:392:56:45

the external site, on the flank of

the ship.

On the side of the ship?

2:56:452:56:50

Yes. Because on the other side might

liferaft, my rescue boat, was

2:56:502:56:57

submerged. I found myself clinging

onto a loose cable hanging from a

2:56:572:57:03

crane expecting some rescue.

Eventually you were. One of the joys

2:57:032:57:12

of having you on today is that not

only are you thinking about people

2:57:122:57:16

who have been lost, and expressing

that through your music, but your

2:57:162:57:20

life has completely changed in terms

of you went one year playing piano

2:57:202:57:26

for wealthy people, as you say a

cruise ship, to not playing at all

2:57:262:57:31

for a while, and being a waiter, and

it was almost happenstance that got

2:57:312:57:36

you to the point play again.

I

realised that my best expression was

2:57:362:57:44

music, still music. I didn't have

anything to say in the aftermath,

2:57:442:57:48

because if I had to tell you

something I would have preferred to

2:57:482:57:52

play you something. I was like a

desert. I was dry. But I was alive.

2:57:522:58:02

The part that triggered the fire was

this piano at the place where I was

2:58:022:58:08

working at a -- as a waiter. I had

my second life started.

People will

2:58:082:58:18

understand that in your album.

2:58:182:58:19

Antimo's album is called

Inner Landscape.

2:58:192:58:21

Becky so much for coming in.

Thank

you for having me.

Thank you so much

2:58:212:58:28

for coming in.

2:58:282:58:29

Carrying out complex surgery

is never an easy task,

2:58:292:58:31

but the volunteer medics

in a new documentary series

2:58:312:58:34

sometimes had to do it

without running water

2:58:342:58:36

and occasionally no electricity.

'Critical Surgery: Changing Lives'

2:58:362:58:37

follows 24 specialists from the UK

who travel to Ethiopia to perform

2:58:372:58:40

life saving facial surgery.

2:58:402:58:42

One story in the programme

is about a girl with a severe

2:58:422:58:45

tumour on her face.

2:58:452:58:46

Let's take a look.

2:58:462:58:54

This is a 3-D scan of her head. The

tumour has spread outwards away from

2:58:542:58:59

her neck. The first thing the

surgical team will do is remove the

2:58:592:59:03

tumour so they can get access to the

blood vessels in her neck which they

2:59:032:59:07

will use to recreate her new jaw

that the tumour has currently

2:59:072:59:14

destroyed.

She has both legs.

Probably vitamin D deficiency. We

2:59:142:59:18

don't often see this in the West,

which complicates our reconstructed.

2:59:182:59:22

The left leg is more bent on the

right. We will remove the fibula

2:59:222:59:27

which will be from about here to

here, then we will use that we

2:59:272:59:31

construct. We will not need all of

that. We will probably need about

2:59:312:59:35

this much.

This is a normal leg

bone. The smaller backbone, the

2:59:352:59:40

superior, will be removed, leaving

her ankle bone intact so she can

2:59:402:59:44

still walk normally. Calvin will use

this bone and tissue to create her

2:59:442:59:51

new jaw. It's a precise job using

high-tech computer scans he will

2:59:512:59:55

measure and bend it fitted exactly

into place. -- Kelvin will use this

2:59:553:00:02

bone. -- and bend it to fit it

exactly into place.

3:00:023:00:09

Kelvin Mizen and Hiroshi Nishikawa

are specialist surgeons

3:00:093:00:11

in the programme.

3:00:113:00:17

People possibly have got a flavour

of the work you do. It is an

3:00:173:00:21

extraordinary film and you are

dealing with people who are in

3:00:213:00:26

desperate circumstances. Just

explain a little bit, possibly it

3:00:263:00:30

helps to talk about Zinash first of

all who have this awful tumour which

3:00:303:00:33

when you first see it, it is the

weight of six bags of sugar and it

3:00:333:00:39

is just a desperate situation she is

in.

It was, yes. We had seen her

3:00:393:00:44

about four years ago but were not in

a situation to help her so we

3:00:443:00:48

developed the service so that we

could help her later on. The problem

3:00:483:00:53

was she was not able to eat, she was

bleeding, she was in pain, and the

3:00:533:00:57

weight on her neck was tremendous as

she was suffering tremendously.

This

3:00:573:01:02

is an operation even in the best of

circumstances which would be very

3:01:023:01:07

difficult, but you are working in

very challenging surroundings.

I

3:01:073:01:13

think the wonderful thing about the

charity is that it allows

3:01:133:01:16

multidisciplinary teams to go, I

don't think one individual person

3:01:163:01:22

could ever do these cases and

conditions are sometimes tough. I

3:01:223:01:27

think the key is the personnel and

the team, for any organisation, and

3:01:273:01:32

I think together it was possible to

do this very complex operation in a

3:01:323:01:37

pathology or illness which we don't

see in this country.

One thing we

3:01:373:01:41

can see is the impact you have on

individuals' lives and their

3:01:413:01:46

families as well. What we saw with

Zinash, we saw her there in the

3:01:463:01:50

piece before we started talking to

you, her tumour was covered in a

3:01:503:01:54

bandage but we also see the reaction

of her mother when she finally gets

3:01:543:01:58

to see the result of the operation,

because the fear, and I think we can

3:01:583:02:02

see it now...

Dad can now go back and share the

3:02:023:02:06

good news.

3:02:063:02:11

good news.

TRANSLATION: I am so

excited to be going home to our

3:02:113:02:13

village and letting everyone know

how well Zinash is doing. I can't

3:02:133:02:17

wait for her mother and the family

to see how great she looks.

He is

3:02:173:02:25

taking a picture back to show her

mum.

3:02:253:02:36

TRANSLATION: Oh, my baby, my baby!

She looks amazing, I can't believe

3:02:413:02:45

it!

3:02:453:02:50

it!

Zinash's mum is overwhelmed. And

no one from the village can quite

3:02:533:03:00

believe the transformation.

The emotional impact, the change in

3:03:003:03:07

someone's life completely, and you

have seen Zinash since?

I went back

3:03:073:03:12

in October and we saw her then and

what you can see now is the lip and

3:03:123:03:17

Bath have shrunk even more, she is

now looking to go to school and help

3:03:173:03:21

out, she is living a normal life.

Our charities follow people up so we

3:03:213:03:26

will see her again in May and

October. The only thing that stops

3:03:263:03:29

of seeing patients is the distance

they have to travel because many

3:03:293:03:33

times they have to trouble free or

four days walking and then get three

3:03:333:03:36

or four buses to come and see us so

we follow the patient up over many

3:03:363:03:41

years, we have followed up patients

over 11 years even.

Hiroshi, we have

3:03:413:03:46

seen in the documentary when you

arrive at a hospital

3:03:463:03:53

arrive at a hospital and have people

come to see you, you are their last

3:03:533:03:56

hope, effectively, people with some

desperate conditions and you are

3:03:563:03:58

placed in a difficult situation of

choosing who you can help. That must

3:03:583:04:01

be agonising for you, knowing that

they are hoping you are the people

3:04:013:04:04

who can change their lives?

It is

one of the most difficult things to

3:04:043:04:08

do. We have to be very dispassionate

about it. It is crushing, but in the

3:04:083:04:15

end our mission is about selection,

we have to help the people we can,

3:04:153:04:22

it is what it is. It is a reflection

on the terrible plight of poor

3:04:223:04:27

countries.

One other thing I was

going to mention, in among this, I

3:04:273:04:30

don't want people to get the wrong

impression, there is a lot of

3:04:303:04:33

laughter and happiness in this

documentary and it is the spirit of

3:04:333:04:37

those youngsters afflicted with the

most terrible things, it really

3:04:373:04:41

comes through.

You see that in the

post up interviews with Zinash, her

3:04:413:04:48

eyes are smiling even though she

cannot physically smile, but you can

3:04:483:04:51

see it tender eyes, we see the

plight and desperation in their eyes

3:04:513:04:53

and later what we see the hope and

they're smiling eyes and that, for

3:04:533:04:58

us, is fantastic.

You go there to

fix a problem but if you take one

3:04:583:05:02

step back to look at the cause of

the problem it can be so simple,

3:05:023:05:11

like this bite by an insect, this

flesh eating...

It is a condition of

3:05:113:05:17

poverty in young children.

Because

in an ideal world it would be

3:05:173:05:22

sorting that out?

Yes, vaccinations,

it was present in the UK in 1800, it

3:05:223:05:30

disappeared with sanitation, we saw

it again in wartime, but with

3:05:303:05:34

antibiotics and nutrition, hydration

we can cure it, it wouldn't come, it

3:05:343:05:40

would just disappear.

People like

yourselves are often very modest

3:05:403:05:43

about what you do, you do this work

for a period of time, a relatively

3:05:433:05:49

short period of time, then you come

back to good day jobs? How does it

3:05:493:05:53

work?

We are very lucky and

privileged, it is about the patient

3:05:533:05:58

both here with the NHS and in

Ethiopian, I don't think that spirit

3:05:583:06:03

is any different and I'm sure that

is why both myself and Kelvin and

3:06:033:06:07

the rest of the team go, I think it

is a privilege.

When is the next

3:06:073:06:10

trip?

Made.

We wish you well. Thank

you for showing us the work you are

3:06:103:06:18

doing.

3:06:183:06:19

'Critical Surgery: Saving Lives'

is on Channel 5 tonight at 10pm.

3:06:193:06:25

We will be back in a couple

3:06:253:06:27

We will be back in a couple of

3:06:273:08:01

Plenty more on our website.

3:08:013:08:02

Now though it's back

to Charlie and Naga.

3:08:023:08:05

She was the youngest person ever

compete in the winter

3:08:093:08:14

Paralympics for Great Britain,

and the first to win

3:08:143:08:16

a World Championship.

3:08:163:08:19

Alongside that, she has won seven

visually-impaired skiing World Cups.

3:08:193:08:22

Now, 19-year-old Millie Knight

and her guide Brett Wild

3:08:223:08:26

are preparing to head out

to the Paralympic Games

3:08:263:08:28

in Pyeongchang next month.

3:08:283:08:33

They are both with us now, very good

morning to you. I was just reading

3:08:333:08:37

in the material about you, Millie,

you are putting's best chance of

3:08:373:08:42

gold in Pyeongchang, how does that

feel?!

It is nice to have Great

3:08:423:08:46

Britain behind us and the support,

but, for us, we are really trying to

3:08:463:08:51

keep our heads down and do

everything we possibly can do to put

3:08:513:08:54

us in that position to beat gold

medallist.

Tell us a bit about your

3:08:543:08:59

event?

We competed Alpine skiing,

five events, downhill, super G,

3:08:593:09:07

super combined, slalom and giant

slalom. Our favourite is downhill,

3:09:073:09:10

the fastest event and the one we

enjoyed the most!

I just want to

3:09:103:09:16

explain, because, Brett, that is you

in the orange top?

That is in

3:09:163:09:19

slalom.

Explain the relationship

between new two on the slopes?

We

3:09:193:09:27

are attached by a Bluetooth headset,

I am telling nearly everything I can

3:09:273:09:31

see what is coming up, the different

change in the course, the change in

3:09:313:09:35

the terrain, if it is icy, soft

snow, I tell Millie every single

3:09:353:09:39

thing so when she hit it she is not

taken of course, she knows what is

3:09:393:09:44

coming up. We have been skiing

together for two years.

To me, that

3:09:443:09:49

does not sound like an amazingly

long time! Millie, I am intrigued to

3:09:493:09:56

know, if something goes wrong, you

compete as a pair, whose fault is it

3:09:563:10:01

nine times out of ten?

Might! Brett

does such a fantastic job and I

3:10:013:10:04

trust him with everything. We have

an inspection run before the races

3:10:043:10:08

which is where Brett learns the

Corrs and knows exactly what is

3:10:083:10:12

going to happen at certain points so

if I am not listening, then things

3:10:123:10:15

can go wrong!

So it is literally a

constant flow of information, you

3:10:153:10:21

are not responding, are you just

receiving information?

No, Brett

3:10:213:10:26

will tell me everything that is

going on, the terrain, the snow, the

3:10:263:10:29

Corrs, and I will say back to him

whether we are going to quickly, too

3:10:293:10:33

slowly, whether the distance is too

big, and it all happens in a

3:10:333:10:36

fraction of a second.

Such speeds,

you obviously have to be just ahead

3:10:363:10:43

of what Millie is about to

encounter?

There are only really

3:10:433:10:47

three command Millie would say back

to me, she has to say turn every

3:10:473:10:53

time, I look back every few gates to

make sure, but every turn she says

3:10:533:10:57

yes, then she says on or off, on is

for me to speed up and offer is to

3:10:573:11:00

slow down because she cannot see me.

How much can you see, Millie?

I have

3:11:003:11:06

5%.

So it is almost an outline or a

blur?

It is a blur, I have only

3:11:063:11:15

peripheral site so Brett comes in

and out of my sight depending on

3:11:153:11:18

which turn we are doing.

That is why

I wear the bright orange jacket,

3:11:183:11:23

because Millie picks up the collar.

It is quite scary for me to imagine,

3:11:233:11:27

skiing at 70 mph, I am scared and I

can see where I am going, all Millie

3:11:273:11:32

is following is an orange blob!

You

guided Mike, didn't you?

Yes, Mike

3:11:323:11:39

Bushell and Graham Bell.

Mike was

here earlier saying it was

3:11:393:11:44

terrifying! How did he do?

He could

not tell if he was moving or

3:11:443:11:49

standing still, to be honest!

His

eyes were covered, won't they?

Yes,

3:11:493:11:59

with a pair of goggles which

replicate Millie's vision.

So he

3:11:593:12:04

could just see the outline...

I

don't even know if he could see

3:12:043:12:09

that, he seemed completely blind

with the way you will skiing!

In the

3:12:093:12:13

early days of training, Millie,

there must have been a big fear

3:12:133:12:16

factor, how did you deal with that?

I have always said that I cannot get

3:12:163:12:20

scared but I cannot see. -- cannot

get scared of what I cannot see. I

3:12:203:12:28

trust to other is guiding me, the

trust is always there with Brett and

3:12:283:12:32

it is a partnership that I hope will

go far.

So do we. We started the

3:12:323:12:36

interview saying you are the big

gold medal hope for Britain in the

3:12:363:12:40

Paralympics. We spoke to Shami

output earlier and she was talking

3:12:403:12:44

about the mind games...

-- 's bid to

Chemmy Alcott. Yes! Psychology is

3:12:443:12:51

one of the biggest element in our

sport. If you are confident at the

3:12:513:12:55

start date the likelihood of a good

one is high but if you are not

3:12:553:12:59

confident in the start gate then you

will have doubt and doubt is

3:12:593:13:01

possibly the worst thing that can

happen to a ski racer.

Do you guys

3:13:013:13:05

have a thing, you are at the top of

the script, the countdown is on, do

3:13:053:13:09

you have a thing that you do, a

ritual?

Millie is a massive Script

3:13:093:13:14

fans so we say to each other, I can

be the greatest, I can be the best,

3:13:143:13:19

I can be king Kong is binding on my

chest.

That is hurting now and it

3:13:193:13:23

seems to work! We wish you all the
