Hello, this is Breakfast,

0:00:040:00:05

with Charlie Stayt and Naga

Munchetty.

0:00:050:00:11

The suspect in America's latest high

school shooting appears

0:00:110:00:13

in court charged with

17 counts of murder.

0:00:130:00:15

19-year-old Nikolas Cruz

is accused of carrying

0:00:150:00:17

out his killing spree

at a campus in Florida.

0:00:170:00:20

Police say that just moments

after his attack the teenager ate

0:00:200:00:23

at a McDonald's and Subway

before being arrested.

0:00:230:00:31

Tributes have been paid

to his victims as vigils are held

0:00:310:00:34

in the town of Parkland

late into the night.

0:00:340:00:37

Good morning, it's Friday

the 16th of February.

0:00:500:00:52

Also this morning:

0:00:520:00:53

The aid

worker at the centre of the Oxfam

0:00:530:00:55

scandal speaks publically

0:00:550:00:56

for the first time as he denies

using prostitutes in Haiti.

0:00:560:01:04

And in sport, it's bronze

for Dom Parsons in the skeleton

0:01:050:01:08

as he wins Britian's first medal

of the Winter Olympics.

0:01:080:01:14

Young people have just one in four

chance of gettign on the property

0:01:140:01:18

ladder according new research.

0:01:180:01:20

It's blamed on rising

prices and a shortgage

0:01:200:01:21

of new homes being built.

0:01:210:01:23

And Breakfast goes back to school.

0:01:230:01:25

We're beginning a new series looking

at the UK's maths problem,

0:01:250:01:28

some of our very best brains will be

put through their GCSE paces.

0:01:280:01:31

And Matt has the weather.

0:01:310:01:39

Good morning from Blenheim Palace,

where I'll be all morning. Gorgeous,

0:01:400:01:45

stunning surroundings on what will

be a nice gorgeous winter's day for

0:01:450:01:48

many. A a frosty start but your full

Friday and we can forecast in the

0:01:480:01:53

next 15 minutes. See you then.

0:01:530:01:55

Good morning.

0:01:550:01:56

First, our main story.

0:01:560:02:04

The 19-year-old accused of carrying

out a school shooting in Florida,

0:02:060:02:09

which left 17 people dead,

has appeared in court charged

0:02:090:02:12

with premeditated murder.

0:02:120:02:13

Nikolas Cruz went on a killing

spree in the town

0:02:130:02:16

of Parkland on Wednesday.

0:02:160:02:17

The FBI is now investigating how it

handled a warning that the teenager

0:02:170:02:20

reportedly posted on YouTube

claiming he would be

0:02:200:02:22

a professional school shooter.

0:02:220:02:23

Vigils were held late into the night

in tribute to the victims,

0:02:230:02:27

as Nada Tawfiq reports.

0:02:270:02:28

They came to mourn the lives lost

and the lives scarred

0:02:280:02:31

by this senseless attack.

0:02:310:02:32

Neighbours, friends and the students

of Stoneman Douglas High comforted

0:02:320:02:35

one another as best they could.

0:02:350:02:36

Jed was among the students who ran

in panic when the first

0:02:360:02:39

shots were fired.

0:02:390:02:40

He doesn't know if he can handle

returning to the halls

0:02:400:02:43

where his classmates'

lives were cut short.

0:02:430:02:48

I don't know if I'll be able

to cope with just walking

0:02:480:02:51

through the bottom floor

of the freshman building,

0:02:510:02:53

knowing that everything

has been cleaned up...

0:02:530:02:55

Like, everything -

you can almost imagine blood

0:02:550:02:58

on the walls, bodies on the floor.

0:02:580:02:59

No one is going to be able to walk

through that building.

0:02:590:03:03

No one.

0:03:030:03:08

All 17 victims have

now been identified.

0:03:080:03:11

Among them talented students,

star athletes and Aaron Feis,

0:03:110:03:14

a beloved football coach

and security guard.

0:03:140:03:16

He has been called a hero

for shielding children

0:03:160:03:18

from the gunman's bullets.

0:03:180:03:24

Nikolas Cruz appeared in court

briefly on 17 charges

0:03:240:03:26

of premeditated murder.

0:03:260:03:27

His lawyer said he was sad

and remorseful and described him

0:03:270:03:30

as a broken human being.

0:03:300:03:33

The sheriff's office said

he confessed to opening fire

0:03:330:03:35

on his former school.

0:03:350:03:36

He told authorities he bought

a drink at Subway and stopped

0:03:360:03:39

at McDonald's after the rampage.

0:03:390:03:44

On social media, Cruz often posed

with guns and on one post he wrote

0:03:440:03:51

he would be a professional

school shooter.

0:03:510:03:53

Those who knew him were

troubled by his behaviour.

0:03:530:03:58

He's someone who use racial slurs,

who was just awful to other people

0:03:580:04:04

and I'm sure he was bullied himself

by some but he was the type of

0:04:040:04:09

person where people were scared to

bully him because they knew

0:04:090:04:11

something could happen. They just

didn't think this would happen.

0:04:110:04:15

These terrifying scenes of students

completely helpless and trembling

0:04:150:04:18

with fear have shaken the nation

0:04:180:04:19

and they have reignited

the debate on gun control.

0:04:190:04:22

People here are in a state of shock,

that someone from their own

0:04:220:04:25

community could be capable of such

killing,

0:04:250:04:27

and that their city now

joins the long list of America's

0:04:270:04:30

school shooting tragedies.

0:04:300:04:38

Nada Tawfiq, BBC News,

Parkland, Florida.

0:04:400:04:42

Anyone who's been abused by Oxfam

staff has been invited

0:04:420:04:45

by the international head

of the charity to tell their story

0:04:450:04:48

and obtain justice.

0:04:480:04:49

Winnie Byanyima said

every complaint would be

0:04:490:04:51

examined by an independent

commission, and wrong-doers would be

0:04:510:04:53

held to account.

0:04:530:04:54

She said she could not guarantee

that there were no sexual

0:04:540:04:57

predators among Oxfam's almost

10,000 paid workers.

0:04:570:04:59

Our diplomatic correspondent,

James Landale, has been

0:04:590:05:01

speaking to her.

0:05:010:05:07

The earthquake that struck

0:05:070:05:09

The earthquake that struck in 2010

reduced much of Haiti to rubble. But

0:05:090:05:13

the after-shocks are still being

felt by Oxfam.

0:05:130:05:20

In her native Ugandan, Oxfam's

global head said sorry for the

0:05:200:05:24

sexual exploitation carried out by

some of her staff in Haiti,

0:05:240:05:27

something she told me she only found

out about last week.

I'm inviting

0:05:270:05:33

anyone who has been a victim of

abuse to come forward, we're going

0:05:330:05:38

to do justice, we are torn for the

past.

0:05:380:05:41

Right now thousands and thousands of

Oxfam staff doing the right thing in

0:05:410:05:46

the most dangerous places in the

world.

She promised a new

0:05:460:05:51

independent commission to

investigate Oxfam's handling of past

0:05:510:05:55

cases, tougher new checks on staff

work references and more cash for

0:05:550:05:59

safeguarding vulnerable people.

Changes that might in the future

0:05:590:06:02

stop Oxfam employing men like Roland

van Hauwermeiren, its former

0:06:020:06:07

director in Haiti, who has denied

paying for sex. TRANSLATION:

Some

0:06:070:06:13

unprofessional journalists are

implying that Oxfam organises sex

0:06:130:06:19

orgies using money from donations,

which is absolutely untrue.

0:06:190:06:24

What is true is that Oxfam now faces

the huge task of trying to rebuild

0:06:240:06:29

public confidence.

Winnie Byanyima said more Oxfam

0:06:290:06:32

staff could be sacked if they're

found to have mishandled past cases,

0:06:320:06:38

but...

We have almost 10,000 staff around

0:06:380:06:42

the world working in more than 90

countries. The majority of those are

0:06:420:06:46

doing the right thing.

You cannot

give that guarantee that there are

0:06:460:06:53

no sexual predators working for your

organisation?

How would I be able to

0:06:530:06:57

guarantee that there is no one who

is going to offend? What I can

0:06:570:07:02

guarantee is that we will build a

new culture that doesn't tolerate

0:07:020:07:07

that behaviour.

What went on in Haiti has cost Oxfam

0:07:070:07:12

donations, public trust and

celebrity ambassadors. Miss Byanyima

0:07:120:07:18

said the organisation was

demoralising but she insisted it

0:07:180:07:21

would survive. What doesn't kill it,

she said, will make it stronger.

0:07:210:07:25

James Landale, BBC News.

0:07:250:07:26

The Football Association

is to review thousands of files

0:07:260:07:29

to find out how much was known

about the abuse carried out

0:07:290:07:32

by former youth coach Barry Bennell

as part of its internal review.

0:07:320:07:35

Yesterday he was found guilty

of another seven counts

0:07:350:07:38

of sexually abusing boys,

meaning he's now been convicted

0:07:380:07:40

of a total of 43 offences

between 1979 and 1990.

0:07:400:07:43

He'll be sentenced on Monday.

0:07:430:07:51

We will be speaking to two of Barry

Bennell's victims on this programme

0:07:510:07:56

a little later this morning, that's

coming up at 6:40am.

0:07:560:07:58

New figures show a dramatic

reduction in the number of young

0:07:580:08:01

people buying their own homes

over the last 20 years.

0:08:010:08:04

The Institute for Fiscal Studies

found that a quarter of those under

0:08:040:08:07

the age of 34, earning

average incomes,

0:08:070:08:09

were able to buy, compared

to two thirds in 1998.

0:08:090:08:12

Our finance correspondent

Simon Gompertz has more.

0:08:120:08:17

So I've been living here a couple of

years now...

30 years old, keen to

0:08:170:08:22

buy but shut out of the market. Tom

wants to stop paying rent in

0:08:220:08:27

Brighton but house prices are beyond

him.

It's completely out of reach at

0:08:270:08:31

the moment, there's not a chance

I'll be able to get the deposit.

0:08:310:08:35

There's such a cost and with utility

bills, the cost of trains going to

0:08:350:08:40

London, with my Brent prices it's

just unachievable and my friends,

0:08:400:08:43

they're all around the same age and

none of us are on the property

0:08:430:08:47

ladder yet.

Years to give for fiscal

studies looked at young people aged

0:08:470:08:52

25-34 on middle incomes at the

moment between around 22000 and

0:08:520:08:56

30,000 for a house hold after-tax.

In most cases couples with children.

0:08:560:09:02

Two decades ago 65% of those on

middle incomes earned their own

0:09:020:09:07

homes, that's dropped to just 27%.

Most of the rest forced to rent.

It

0:09:070:09:13

will cost you more in the long-term

if you rent and you're not putting

0:09:130:09:17

that money towards a mortgage that

can eventually be paid off, let's

0:09:170:09:20

face it. So I think we will see

people less disposable income, a

0:09:200:09:24

smaller savings pot and potentially

as well less money to put towards

0:09:240:09:29

their retirement.

High household

prices are making young people like

0:09:290:09:35

Tom look further and further afield

in the hope of finding something

0:09:350:09:38

they can afford. Simon Gompertz, BBC

News, Brighton.

0:09:380:09:42

A BBC investigation has revealed

a significant difference

0:09:420:09:44

between the highest earning male

and female consultants working

0:09:440:09:47

for the NHS in England.

0:09:470:09:48

Figures show that one in five

of the top 100 earners are women,

0:09:480:09:52

while on average full-time men owned

14,000 pounds a year more

0:09:520:09:55

than their female counterparts

when including bonuses and overtime.

0:09:550:09:57

Our health correspondent

Dominic Hughes explains.

0:09:570:10:05

Many different organisations have

faced tough questions around the gap

0:10:070:10:10

in pay between men and women, not

least the BBC. Now an examination of

0:10:100:10:15

the pay of consultants, the most

senior clinicians working in the NHS

0:10:150:10:20

in England, reveals it's an issue

for the health service to two.

0:10:200:10:23

On average, consultants earn a basic

salary of just over £85,000 a year

0:10:230:10:28

but they can get paid extra, for

example in overtime or special

0:10:280:10:32

awards for clinical excellence. But

when that figure for total pay is

0:10:320:10:36

broken down for men and women,

full-time female consultants earn

0:10:360:10:43

£14,000 less on average than their

male colleagues. And other top 100

0:10:430:10:46

owners, just five are female, even

though they make up more than a of

0:10:460:10:50

the workforce.

Certainly within the

NHS there should be no disparities

0:10:500:10:55

in pay because pay structures are

national and are clearly publicised.

0:10:550:11:03

And so other than for issues of, for

example people working longer hours,

0:11:030:11:07

there shouldn't be any reason for

discrepancies in paid.

The

0:11:070:11:12

government has already announced an

independent review of how the gender

0:11:120:11:14

pay gap can be eliminated in

medicine. It might be that men are

0:11:140:11:19

more willing to work overtime or

more likely to apply for an award,

0:11:190:11:22

but a study in 2009 revealed a

similar picture and female

0:11:220:11:27

consultants say it's disappointing

that these differences still exist.

0:11:270:11:32

Dominic Hughes, BBC News.

0:11:320:11:33

A Department of Health spokesperson

said, "We are committed to ensuring

0:11:330:11:36

hardworking doctors are rewarded

fairly and equally for their work

0:11:360:11:39

regardless of gender and have

commissioned an independent report

0:11:390:11:41

alongside the medical profession

0:11:410:11:42

to examine how that

can be achieved."

0:11:420:11:46

Britain's bus network has shrunk

to levels last seen in the late

0:11:460:11:49

1980s, that's according

to a BBC investigation.

0:11:490:11:51

Rising car use and cuts to public

funding are being blamed

0:11:510:11:54

for a loss of 134 million

miles of coverage over

0:11:540:11:57

the past decade alone.

0:11:570:11:58

The Campaign for Better Transport

says the scale of the miles lost

0:11:580:12:01

is a sign that buses are on course

to be cut to the same extent

0:12:010:12:05

railways were in the 1960s.

0:12:050:12:11

The Hollywood actress

Jennifer Aniston has announced

0:12:110:12:13

she is to seperate from her husband

Justin Theroux after two

0:12:130:12:16

years of marriage.

0:12:160:12:17

The pair, who were married

in a secret ceremony in Los Angeles

0:12:170:12:20

in 2015, reportedly met on the set

of comedy film Wanderlust.

0:12:200:12:23

They gave no reason for the split

but said it was a mutual decision

0:12:230:12:27

which had been lovingly made

at the end of last year.

0:12:270:12:35

It's the beginning of what could

well be the biggest annual

0:12:350:12:38

celebration worldwide,

the Lunar New Year,

0:12:380:12:39

also known as the Spring Festival.

0:12:390:12:41

More than 1.4 billion

Chinese people around

0:12:410:12:43

the world marked the official entry

into the Year of the Dog

0:12:430:12:46

with lanterns, banquets

and colourful celebrations.

0:12:460:12:54

Mike is here with the sport. We have

been talking about it and it's

0:13:010:13:05

happened?

It has, you mentioned the

Year of the Dog, now it is the year

0:13:050:13:11

of the Dom, he has one Briton's

first medal at the Winter Games,

0:13:110:13:15

another milestone for skeleton

because the first man to win a

0:13:150:13:18

British medal in skeleton racing

since 1948. Fantastic. He almost

0:13:180:13:23

blew it, he came back on the last

bend, it was touch and go.

0:13:230:13:31

So another historic day

for British sliding,

0:13:310:13:33

day seven of these Winter Games has

already proved to be a magnificent

0:13:330:13:37

one for Team GB, as

Ben Croucher reports.

0:13:370:13:39

Dom Parsons!

At last, six days of no

medals for Great Britain, on the

0:13:390:13:46

seventh that Demon was laid to rest.

Dom Parsons is doing a Ph.D. In

0:13:460:13:50

mechanical engineering, a study of

calm before the most important two

0:13:500:13:55

runs of his life. Lying in fourth

Parsons got his angle is just right,

0:13:550:13:59

sliding down the track but crucially

up the standings after his first

0:13:590:14:02

run. All he had to do now was to

initiate off. If he beat the Russian

0:14:020:14:07

athlete behind him he'd be

guaranteed a medal, a first for

0:14:070:14:11

athlete behind him he'd be

guaranteed a medal, a first for, a

0:14:110:14:12

British man in the sport since 1948.

0:14:120:14:23

The misses out by two hundredths of

a second.

0:14:230:14:26

So was that wait for a medal going

to continue? Parsons didn't have too

0:14:260:14:30

long to find out, needing a slipup

from Latvia's Martin Doctor is. --

0:14:300:14:37

Martins Dukurs.

I thought I'd lost it and after that

0:14:370:14:47

second run, well, forefront, I

thought it had gone away. Yeah, I

0:14:470:14:53

looked up at the time, made a couple

of mistakes on that run. But Martins

0:14:530:15:01

made more mistakes and he's the last

person I thought would make those

0:15:010:15:05

mistakes.

Parsons' teammates were the first to

0:15:050:15:08

congratulate him as well. Elise

Christie, having suffered her medal

0:15:080:15:11

agony, was the first to express her

delight but could this be a catalyst

0:15:110:15:16

for GB and skeleton?

Dom doing that,

the guys, the development squad

0:15:160:15:22

behind him have proven it isn't

impossible and the girls have got

0:15:220:15:26

the medals and now the guys have

started it with Dom and let's see

0:15:260:15:29

what the future brings more British

spell skeleton.

0:15:290:15:33

Now Parsons has got Britain up and

running, the wait for another medal

0:15:330:15:36

might not be too long, the women

could add to it tomorrow. Ben

0:15:360:15:40

Croucher, BBC News.

0:15:400:15:43

You have to look at Jenny Jones and

how it made her a household name a

0:15:430:15:48

while ago and looking at the effect

it will have on Dom Parsons. He's

0:15:480:15:51

30, wanted to be an F1 driver, I'm

sure he will settle with skeleton!

I

0:15:510:15:57

think skeleton is more thrilling!

In

both sports you need huge strong

0:15:570:16:02

neck muscles.

We will hear from him

live later?

Very exciting. Andrew

0:16:020:16:07

Musgrave has just gone off in the 15

kilometre cross-country skiing

0:16:070:16:11

freestyle, he could get a medal so

it could get better today!

0:16:110:16:16

How are we looking at the moment,

Matt?

0:16:280:16:31

Good morning. I am in Oxfordshire. A

stunning surroundings. The alarm

0:16:310:16:41

clock can be a little bit tough

sometimes, but this makes it worthy.

0:16:410:16:47

This was built in the early 1700 and

has been the back drop for films

0:16:470:16:54

like Spectre and Mission Impossible.

We are looking for signs of spring.

0:16:540:16:59

It is around the corner and numbers

are up at the moment, but we could

0:16:590:17:04

have those few hints over the next

few days. Not so much if you are up

0:17:040:17:10

in the early hours. Let's have a

look at the forecast. Today it is

0:17:100:17:15

frosty, but a fine day across most

parts of the country. We will see

0:17:150:17:19

some further wintry showers across

the north-west, especially across

0:17:190:17:23

parts of western Scotland. There is

a little bit of patchy mist and fog

0:17:230:17:27

which will quickly clear. As you can

see there are showers towards the

0:17:270:17:31

north and west, but very little

cloud on the map. It will build

0:17:310:17:36

towards the west later. If you have

a closer look at about three o'clock

0:17:360:17:41

you can see most places across

England and Wales are dry. It could

0:17:410:17:45

be a bit thicker in the west. Maybe

patchy rain towards Northern Ireland

0:17:450:17:49

and still a few showers in Scotland.

The odd rumble of thunder as well,

0:17:490:17:55

but nowhere near as many as

yesterday. More of us will see the

0:17:550:17:59

sunshine through today and the winds

will be a bit lighter. Still a

0:17:590:18:02

breezy northern Scotland. It will

feel reasonably nice. Across

0:18:020:18:06

southern areas we could see

temperatures into double figures.

0:18:060:18:10

Into the night, we will see a band

of rain, sleet and snow into western

0:18:100:18:17

fringes of England and Wales into

the morning. The south-east of that

0:18:170:18:20

we have a frost into the morning and

as the skies clear it is showers

0:18:200:18:24

later in the north-west of Scotland.

It could be a little bit icy in a

0:18:240:18:28

couple of. It makes for a cloudy is

tight for many. In northern and

0:18:280:18:33

western parts of England and Wales

we have cloud and outbreaks of rain

0:18:330:18:36

and maybe a bit of hill snow, which

will pull south and east. A few

0:18:360:18:42

showers in north-west Scotland

through the day. Many will have some

0:18:420:18:46

sunny spells. Not a bad day. Again,

temperatures on the mild side

0:18:460:18:51

compared to what we've had of late.

We continue that while the theme

0:18:510:18:56

into Saturday night and Sunday. More

cloud developing through Saturday

0:18:560:19:01

night and on Sunday that will fit in

up in western Scotland and Northern

0:19:010:19:05

Ireland and western fringes of

England and Wales. Further east,

0:19:050:19:09

especially towards East Anglia and

the south-east, you may have dry

0:19:090:19:13

weekend. Still a chance of sunny

spells, although there will be a

0:19:130:19:18

fair bit of cloud. We will have

hints of spring, but we may see

0:19:180:19:22

temperatures quite widely getting

into double figures and not far off

0:19:220:19:28

in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Before you get too complacent about

0:19:280:19:32

thinking spring is with us, there

are hints at the moment that things

0:19:320:19:36

could turn much colder again during

next week. I will keep you updated.

0:19:360:19:41

You can never get too optimistic

about the weather when you are

0:19:410:19:44

around, Matt.

Definitely not when I am here!

0:19:440:19:47

Just a joke! The more double figures

we see, the more we will feel like

0:19:470:19:54

we are stepping into spring. See you

later.

0:19:540:19:58

You're watching

Breakfast from BBC News.

0:19:580:19:59

The main stories this morning:

The FBI has launched a review

0:19:590:20:02

over its handling of a warning

about the teenager accused

0:20:020:20:05

of carrying out a shooting

at a school in Florida where 17

0:20:050:20:08

people were killed.

0:20:080:20:09

Team GB has claimed its first medal

of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.

0:20:090:20:12

Dom Parsons won bronze

in the men's skeleton.

0:20:120:20:20

We will return to our main story

this morning and the murder of 17

0:20:240:20:28

people. The deadliest US school

shooting since 2012.

0:20:280:20:33

Teachers and pupils ran for cover as

19-year-old Nikolas Cruz began his

0:20:330:20:37

attack. We will now

0:20:370:20:43

attack. We will now speak to Ivy

Schamis, a teacher at that school,

0:20:450:20:48

and she has therefore been directly

affect the by what happened and some

0:20:480:20:52

of the details could be distressing.

Thank you for taking the time to

0:20:520:20:56

speak to us. I first question to you

is how are you today?

Pretty

0:20:560:21:02

devastated, actually. Still thinking

about my students.

That's completely

0:21:020:21:08

understandable. If you would, could

you just described where you were

0:21:080:21:14

when you first realised something

was happening was that I was

0:21:140:21:18

actually teaching the history of the

Holocaust and I have mostly seniors

0:21:180:21:25

in that classed and I was in front

of a big recording and we were

0:21:250:21:33

finishing up on a recording of the

1936 Olympics in Berlin when we

0:21:330:21:38

heard loud pop, pop, and the kids

instantaneously go for the door.

--

0:21:380:21:44

the floor. We didn't question it, it

was unmistakable. The kids were all

0:21:440:21:50

trying to take cover in the

classroom.

So you realised something

0:21:500:21:57

was happening. Was it immediately

apparent it was a shooter? It came

0:21:570:22:02

close to where you were. What

happens next?

There were a lot of

0:22:020:22:09

students and so we just tried to go

behind my desk, the Hind the file

0:22:090:22:14

cabinet, behind the laptop. They

tried to find cover. It was

0:22:140:22:21

instantaneous, but within seconds

the student came to my door and he

0:22:210:22:27

shot out the whole glass panel in

the door and hitting students while

0:22:270:22:33

he did that.

This is the point, this

is so awful for you, I know, you

0:22:330:22:41

lost some of the students who were

in your class at that time?

Yes,

0:22:410:22:44

sir. We didn't know it at the time.

He hit several students and they

0:22:440:22:50

were injured and I didn't realise at

that moment will stop two were

0:22:500:22:54

female and male student who were

seniors and ready to go to college

0:22:540:22:59

soon. They were killed.

I really

seeking not to distress you any

0:22:590:23:05

further and I know this is very

difficult for you. We now have seen

0:23:050:23:09

some of the names of the ages of

those students. These will be

0:23:090:23:12

students you know well. 14, 15, 16

and 17 years old. You've had a

0:23:120:23:20

little time to try to understand a

bit more of what happened. Watched

0:23:200:23:24

you of it now?

I make no sense of

this. It was completely random.

0:23:240:23:31

Completely senseless. This teenager

should not have had an assault rifle

0:23:310:23:37

at all. I don't think we were

targeted, I didn't know the shooter,

0:23:370:23:43

I've been teaching at that school

for 17 years and never had him. It

0:23:430:23:47

is a large suburban high school, I

don't know him, so I think whatever

0:23:470:23:51

then that he had he just randomly

sought out several classrooms and

0:23:510:23:58

unfortunately mine was one of them.

From what we understand, and explain

0:23:580:24:02

this for us, you were explaining how

your students reacted, that they did

0:24:020:24:08

exactly the right thing at the time,

notwithstanding the terrible loss

0:24:080:24:12

that you've suffered within your

classroom. But they did the right

0:24:120:24:15

thing. It was something you had

rehearsed for? You had trained your

0:24:150:24:19

students for?

Yes. We have been

practising because of everything

0:24:190:24:25

that we've seen on the news, we've

been practising what would happen in

0:24:250:24:30

code black or code red, and we were

not ready for shots to be fired in

0:24:300:24:35

the hallway, we didn't practice for

that, but they knew right away just

0:24:350:24:39

to take cover. No one thought, this

is a drill, no one looked around,

0:24:390:24:43

they just immediately... I was very

proud of them. They immediately ran

0:24:430:24:49

to find anything to cover themselves

and find something to hide behind.

0:24:490:24:53

They all crowded behind my desk and

tried to call 911.

It is very early,

0:24:530:25:00

especially someone so close to the

event as you were, to have these

0:25:000:25:04

discussions, but I don't know what

security measures you had in place

0:25:040:25:07

at your school and some people are

saying there should be an armed

0:25:070:25:11

police officer in schools now. What

do you make of those... That thought

0:25:110:25:15

process?

We have an armed police

officer, but it's an extremely large

0:25:150:25:25

campus and I guess he can't be

everywhere all the time. We didn't

0:25:250:25:28

really see this coming. I... I don't

know. I mean, I don't think I should

0:25:280:25:36

have been armed and I don't think

teachers should be armed, as I don't

0:25:360:25:40

think those teenagers should have

had an assault rifle over. I don't

0:25:400:25:43

know how you get ready for this.

Just a couple of last thoughts. Are

0:25:430:25:47

you going to be going back to the

school itself? I know there have

0:25:470:25:53

been vigils held.

This must be

agonising times. Very, however I did

0:25:530:26:01

go yesterday in the afternoon and I

was there for several hours. The

0:26:010:26:05

students felt it was quite

therapeutic and we were able to

0:26:050:26:08

reunite. There are a lot of rumours

flying around, but I was injured or

0:26:080:26:12

killed, so just by seeing each other

and being with each other, I have no

0:26:120:26:18

idea when school will be ready to be

in session.

Given that you were in

0:26:180:26:23

the classroom when this occurred and

the students you know so well, how

0:26:230:26:27

do you think you will go about

helping them deal with something no

0:26:270:26:32

young person, indeed no teacher,

though people, should ever have to

0:26:320:26:36

go through?

No one should ever. I

didn't think I would have to do this

0:26:360:26:42

either. I just think if I am there

for them, I love my students dearly,

0:26:420:26:46

I feel like if I listen, we listen,

and we talk about it and it really

0:26:460:26:51

does help to talk and listen to what

they have to say and just let them

0:26:510:26:56

know that we love them. We love

them.

I really thank you for your

0:26:560:27:01

time this morning. I know it's a

very difficult time for you. Thank

0:27:010:27:05

you very much.

Thank you so much.

That's Ivy Schamis. She was teaching

0:27:050:27:12

in a class when the shooter arrived

in her school.

0:27:120:27:20

We will be talking a lot more about

that throughout the programme.

0:27:200:27:23

Time now to get the news,

travel and weather where you are.

0:27:230:30:44

drizzle later. Have a nice day.

Don't

0:30:440:30:45

drizzle later. Have a nice day.

Don't forget, 20 more on our website

0:30:450:30:47

at the usual address.

Goodbye.

0:30:470:30:51

Welcome back, you're watching

Breakfast with Charlie Stayt and

0:30:560:30:59

Naga Munchetty. Here's a summary of

the main stories from BBC News: The

0:30:590:31:04

FBI is investigating how it handled

a warning about the teenager accused

0:31:040:31:08

of carrying out Wednesday's school

shooting in Florida, which left 17

0:31:080:31:13

dead. Nikolas Cruz, 19, reportedly

posted a YouTube comment claiming he

0:31:130:31:20

would be a professional school

shooter. Tributes were paid to his

0:31:200:31:24

victims with vigils through the

night.

0:31:240:31:27

The former Oxfam director,

accused of hiring prostitutes

0:31:270:31:29

while working in Haiti and Chad,

has denied paying for sex but said

0:31:290:31:32

he had made some mistakes.

0:31:320:31:36

In an open letter,

he admitted he'd had

0:31:360:31:38

an intimate relationship

0:31:380:31:39

with a woman in Haiti,

but said she was not a prostiture.

0:31:390:31:42

The international

head of the charity

0:31:420:31:44

has invited anyone who's

been abused by Oxfam

0:31:440:31:46

staff to tell their story

and obtain justice.

0:31:460:31:48

New figures show a dramatic

reduction in the number of young

0:31:480:31:51

people buying their own homes

over the last 20 years.

0:31:510:31:54

The Institute for Fiscal Studies

found that a quarter of those under

0:31:540:31:57

the age of 34, earning

average incomes,

0:31:570:31:59

were able to buy, compared

to two thirds in 1998.

0:31:590:32:07

A BBC investigation has revealed

a significant difference

0:32:070:32:09

between the highest earning male

and female consultants working

0:32:090:32:11

for the NHS in England.

0:32:110:32:15

Figures show that one in five

of the top 100 earners are women,

0:32:150:32:20

while on average full-time men

owned £14,000 a year more

0:32:200:32:23

than their female counterparts

when including bonuses and overtime.

0:32:230:32:26

Only 5% of women among the top 100

owners. The Department of Health

0:32:260:32:31

said it's committed to ensuring

doctors are awarded fairly equally

0:32:310:32:34

regardless of gender.

0:32:340:32:35

The Hollywood actress

Jennifer Aniston has announced

0:32:350:32:37

she is to separate from her husband

Justin Theroux after two

0:32:370:32:40

years of marriage.

0:32:400:32:41

The pair, who were married

in a secret ceremony in Los Angeles

0:32:410:32:44

in 2015, reportedly met on the set

of comedy film Wanderlust.

0:32:440:32:47

They gave no reason for the split

but said it was a mutual decision

0:32:470:32:51

which had been "lovingly made"

at the end of last year.

0:32:510:32:59

Those are the main stories this

morning. Good morning, Mike.

It has

0:32:590:33:03

started, the medal rush for Great

Britain, Dom Parsons in the skeleton

0:33:030:33:08

with his bronze and by around 705,

we could have a second with Andrew

0:33:080:33:13

Musgrave competing in the

cross-country seeing -- 7:05am. They

0:33:130:33:19

have started in the 15 kilometre

cross-country skiing but let's focus

0:33:190:33:22

on the historic moment for Dom

Parsons. The first medal for Britain

0:33:220:33:27

at these Games. He thought the medal

had slipped away after a couple of

0:33:270:33:33

errors on his final run in the

skeleton, but... Latvia's Martin

0:33:330:33:41

stutters when slower guaranteeing

Great Britain a first men's skeleton

0:33:410:33:44

medal in 17 years.

0:33:440:33:50

medal in 17 years. Sunbing Yun was

bird.

0:33:500:33:55

I thought I'd lost it

and after that second run,

0:33:550:33:58

well, fourth run,

I thought it had gone away.

0:33:580:34:00

Yeah, I looked up at

the time, made a couple

0:34:000:34:03

too many mistakes on that run.

0:34:030:34:04

But Martins made more

mistakes and he's the last

0:34:040:34:07

person I thought would

make those mistakes.

0:34:070:34:10

We were trying to bring you the

commentary, it was special, on the

0:34:100:34:14

final bend, listen to how the

commentators reacted here.

0:34:140:34:21

commentators reacted here.

Five

hundredths between himself and

0:34:240:34:26

Parsons at the second last term.

Behind Parsons, Dom Parsons

0:34:260:34:32

unbelievably has his medal! Yes,

Don! For Great Britain! -- Dom.

As a

0:34:320:34:45

commentator that will be one of the

highlights of your whole career, I

0:34:450:34:48

love the laughter in the background,

the uncontrolled, unbridled joy.

0:34:480:34:53

There's a realisation that the

timing is our edging ahead by a tiny

0:34:530:34:58

little bit.

You have to do your bit

and wait for the Latvian as well to

0:34:580:35:03

not quite match your time, which is

what happened. Next we going to look

0:35:030:35:10

at Andrew Musgrave because he is in

action in the 15 K cross-country

0:35:100:35:14

seeing which claims to be the

hardest of all winter sports because

0:35:140:35:18

of the endurance and the pain you go

through in training. We can go live

0:35:180:35:25

to South Korea. Musgrave is a

genuine medal contender. He got a

0:35:250:35:36

third place in the World Cup event

in Italy in December, so he has done

0:35:360:35:42

it, he has got form. It's a bit like

a time trial, they go out in

0:35:420:35:47

staggered starts and it's all about

the time they can achieve so we

0:35:470:35:50

should get a split of Musgrave's

time to see how he's getting on in a

0:35:500:35:55

few moments.

They've been struggling

with the weather but it looks like

0:35:550:35:58

perfect conditions, bright sunshine.

When they have been training and

0:35:580:36:02

racing here before, it is freezing,

but they have got a pleasant day

0:36:020:36:06

with the sun shining, one of those

lovely skiing days when the sun is

0:36:060:36:10

basking on the piste and you feel a

bit of warmth, which must help.

It's

0:36:100:36:15

moments like this when you know

they're getting a little bit of

0:36:150:36:18

relief as they go down the hill.

You

have to go to the BBC sport website

0:36:180:36:23

and see how Andrew Musgrave trains

because he goes on roller skis

0:36:230:36:27

around Scotland and Norway, and also

there is a treadmill for roller skis

0:36:270:36:34

and he shared this one clip in which

he flies off!

0:36:340:36:37

Trying to prove why it's the hardest

of all Winter Olympic sports.

Are

0:36:390:36:44

roller skis long versions of roller

blades?

They are skis with wheels

0:36:440:36:49

you can go on the road with.

That's

the live event, are we going to get

0:36:490:36:53

an idea of the split?

Not yet.

He

only started around 6:30am.

0:36:530:37:01

Briefly away from the Winter

Olympics...

0:37:010:37:04

Scotland will this morning announce

0:37:040:37:05

Alex Mcleish as their

new football manager.

0:37:050:37:07

It'll be his second stint in charge

of the national side,

0:37:070:37:10

having left the post 11 years ago.

0:37:100:37:12

He replaces Gordon Strachan,

who left in October after failing

0:37:120:37:14

to qualify for the World Cup.

0:37:140:37:16

There was sucess in the last 32

of Europa League for Celtic.

0:37:160:37:19

They managed a 1-0 victory over

Russian side Zenit St Petersberg

0:37:190:37:22

at Celtic Park.

0:37:220:37:23

Calum McGregor's second half winner

means they Glasgow side

0:37:230:37:26

have the slight advantage

going into the second leg

0:37:260:37:28

in a weeks' time.

0:37:280:37:29

Meanwhile, the impressive week

for English clubs in Europe

0:37:290:37:32

continued with a comfortable 3-0

0:37:320:37:33

away win for Arsenal against

Ostersunds.

0:37:330:37:35

Mesut Ozil with the last

of the goals in their first leg

0:37:350:37:38

against the Swedish side.

0:37:380:37:46

The women go later on, including

Laura Dees and Lizzy Yarnold in the

0:37:480:37:53

skeleton and I have been to see

Lizzy Yarnold in training in Germany

0:37:530:37:57

to see how she feels about becoming

the first British athlete to try to

0:37:570:38:01

retain an Olympic title.

We will get

the split at some point.

See you

0:38:010:38:05

later.

0:38:050:38:07

For 25 years, Barry Bennell

lived a double life.

0:38:070:38:13

Publicly lauded as one of English

football's best talent

0:38:130:38:15

spotters, but in private he carried

out a campaign of sexual abuse

0:38:150:38:18

against young boys.

0:38:180:38:19

He's been convicted of a total

of 43 charges relating

0:38:190:38:22

to assaults carried out

between 1979 and 1990.

0:38:220:38:24

One of his victims was

David Lean, who joins us now.

0:38:240:38:30

Good morning.

Good morning.

Thank

you so much for joining us this

0:38:300:38:35

morning. Just before we talk in a

bit more detail about what happened

0:38:350:38:40

to you, I'm imagining the events of

the past few years, specifically the

0:38:400:38:45

past few days, must feel very

important for you?

It is great to

0:38:450:38:50

finally see justice. I don't feel I

got justice in 2015, he just got a

0:38:500:38:57

two-year sentence, served 12 months.

I always knew there was going to be

0:38:570:39:01

many more. Told everybody there was

many more. Finally it's been shown

0:39:010:39:06

there's been many more.

I think we

will go through who you told and who

0:39:060:39:11

did or didn't react appropriately

perhaps as we can now say, but what

0:39:110:39:15

happened to you? It was in the 1980s

that you came across Barry Bennell.

0:39:150:39:19

It was 79, met him in May at the

Butlins holiday camp, he was the

0:39:190:39:26

resident football coach there and

instantly took a shine to me. The

0:39:260:39:29

sessions were for ten to 14-year-old

boys, was only 11. He took a real

0:39:290:39:35

shine, told me he had links to

Manchester City and alternately

0:39:350:39:39

after that he wanted me to try and

go and play for his feeder team.

0:39:390:39:44

What did that mean in terms of your

parents, they would have been so

0:39:440:39:47

excited, talented child, every

opportunity?

Absolutely. I was doing

0:39:470:39:53

quite well at football anyway in my

own home town of Blackpool. He was

0:39:530:39:57

basically saying to me, yeah, he's a

real star. My dad was never a pushy

0:39:570:40:02

parent but he was always right

behind my dream so it meant

0:40:020:40:07

everything to my dad as well, he

spent time talking to my dad during

0:40:070:40:10

those sessions so he got to know him

quite well.

There was a point when

0:40:100:40:15

you were invited to stay at his

house while you were on a training

0:40:150:40:18

camp?

We had been writing to each other

0:40:180:40:21

for about 11 months at that stage.

He basically said there is a

0:40:210:40:26

full-day course on the Friday, a

soccer coaching course, skills,

0:40:260:40:30

that's the kind of thing I loved, it

was a chance for me to go and state,

0:40:300:40:35

do the course but it was quite an

early start on the Friday, so go

0:40:350:40:38

down Thursday, stay over and rather

than your dad rush up to work on the

0:40:380:40:44

Friday, come down Saturday morning

to pick you up, so tonight.

You were

0:40:440:40:48

in his house, did the training

course, what happened?

From the

0:40:480:40:53

second my dad drove off and we went

into the property it was just...

0:40:530:40:58

Complete attention. He just never

left me alone, he was constantly

0:40:580:41:05

play fighting with you, tickling,

hugging up to you on the couch,

0:41:050:41:10

rubbing his bristle on your cheeks

when he pinned you down but it was

0:41:100:41:15

all playful at that stage. In the

kitchen, whipping you with tea

0:41:150:41:20

towels, just generally messing

around. But there was a lot of mass

0:41:200:41:23

Arj and stuff. He was very

touchy-feely the whole time -- mass

0:41:230:41:28

Arj. Obviously things changed when I

got into bed and he came back from

0:41:280:41:34

getting himself ready and just

jumped into bed.

David, do you

0:41:340:41:37

remember the time when you first...

We can feel how hard it is even now

0:41:370:41:44

to recount these things. Do you

remember the time when you first

0:41:440:41:47

told someone else?

Believe it or not

I don't actually remember it. The

0:41:470:41:53

first thing I said to my dad when my

dad pick me ups on the Saturday

0:41:530:41:57

morning is he'd been trying to get

into bed with me but I wouldn't let

0:41:570:42:01

him and he slept on the floor. My

dad mentioned that to the police at

0:42:010:42:05

his interview but I've got no

recollection of saying that. Other

0:42:050:42:08

than that, the next time I spoke was

when I walk into a police station in

0:42:080:42:13

Macclesfield on the fourth of

February, 2013, and disclosed.

0:42:130:42:16

Effectively for all those years it

was something you had kept inside?

0:42:160:42:20

Yeah. There's a lot of reasons. You

know, pure embarrassment, trying to

0:42:200:42:26

deal with it yourself, the way your

own body reacts to the abuse isn't

0:42:260:42:30

the way you would want your body to

react to the abuse. Massage in plain

0:42:300:42:36

terms you were a young man, a young

boy, and he was predatory, sexually

0:42:360:42:41

attacking you?

That is confusing for any young

0:42:410:42:45

child?

It messes messes with your

head for a long time afterwards.

0:42:450:42:53

After the abuse the psychological

stuff affects you worse.

At the

0:42:530:43:00

start of this conversation you said

there were going to be others, you

0:43:000:43:06

have spoken to the police and the

football Association, can you tell

0:43:060:43:10

us initially how you feel you were

reacted to as an adult saying what

0:43:100:43:15

had been going on?

Generally the

police were good with me. I told

0:43:150:43:19

them there was many, I told them

there were many more, he was

0:43:190:43:23

coaching at that stage for 15 or 20

years and during that period they

0:43:230:43:27

are saying he abused six or seven

boys who had been found at that

0:43:270:43:31

stage when I went into the police

station and he had been previously

0:43:310:43:35

convicted for those. Are told them

there would be many more. I asked to

0:43:350:43:39

go to the media but they said not to

do that because it would ruin my

0:43:390:43:43

case -- I told. It was the first

time I had any... I had used the

0:43:430:43:49

criminal justice system in any way,

I had no idea how it would go and I

0:43:490:43:54

told the CPS when I had my meeting

after they dropped my case on public

0:43:540:43:57

interest grounds, they said that

because he had been convicted prior

0:43:570:44:01

to myself that it wouldn't be in the

public interest to take my case

0:44:010:44:05

forward.

Can I just ask, David, many

people of course, many organisations

0:44:050:44:10

are asking themselves officially or

unofficial league a lot of questions

0:44:100:44:13

about why he was allowed to do what

he did for so long -- and

0:44:130:44:17

officially. Do you take any comfort

from that? Are you concerned people

0:44:170:44:23

won't forget about it quickly and

would ask the right questions?

0:44:230:44:27

Absolutely. Abuse is going on

everywhere, sexual abuse is

0:44:270:44:33

continuing to this day and it will

be continuing right through football

0:44:330:44:37

to this day at grassroots level, I'm

absolutely convinced of that. This

0:44:370:44:41

has got to be something that

continues to be in the public

0:44:410:44:44

spotlight and people continue to

campaign.

Even now there are

0:44:440:44:48

football clubs that haven't got the

right structures in place to stop

0:44:480:44:51

this?

I'm not talking professional

clubs, the game has moved on a long

0:44:510:44:56

way, but grassroots football

everywhere with people in positions

0:44:560:44:59

of power and trust. I ran a junior

football team myself for many years

0:44:590:45:04

and it's very easy for the parents

to let you pick their children up,

0:45:040:45:09

shall we say, and you go and watch

any junior game on the sidelines

0:45:090:45:13

this weekend when they get to under

12s, under 13s, very few parents are

0:45:130:45:19

watching. Managers go round and

let's be fair, 99% of managers will

0:45:190:45:25

be fantastic, wonderfully dedicated

volunteers but they will be that 1%.

0:45:250:45:29

Now these convictions have been

made, do you feel you can move on

0:45:290:45:33

with your life?

It will always be

there, there's no doubt about that,

0:45:330:45:41

but it is something now that I want

to campaign for. I've been trying

0:45:410:45:45

hard to do that and raise awareness

and speak publicly about it, but it

0:45:450:45:50

is still very difficult and raw and

emotional and my wife has been

0:45:500:45:54

fantastic because obviously when we

met she had no idea, and so it hit

0:45:540:45:59

her cold as well. She's been very

supportive. But the justice that

0:45:590:46:07

I've got now and the feeling that

I've got now is very much going to

0:46:070:46:14

help.

Thank you so much for talking

to us and for all the work you are

0:46:140:46:19

doing and for being so brave to talk

to us.

0:46:190:46:22

Thank you very much.

0:46:220:46:26

Matt's out at Blenheim Palace this

morning to take a look

0:46:260:46:29

at today's weather.

0:46:290:46:31

Good morning!

0:46:310:46:32

Good morning!

Good morning. Yes, we are at

0:46:320:46:37

Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire this

morning. Stunning surroundings. The

0:46:370:46:42

building behind me has history

stretching back 300 years. It was

0:46:420:46:47

the birthplace of Winston Churchill

and it's a world in as the heritage

0:46:470:46:52

site as well. Not just the building

of course, there are beautiful

0:46:520:46:56

surroundings. Parklands, forestry

and a lake. We are looking for hints

0:46:560:47:02

of spring this morning, but

certainly there is still a hint of

0:47:020:47:09

winter, because it's a cold start

the day, a frost. If we take a look

0:47:090:47:13

at the forecast there is a frost in

many parts of the country.

0:47:130:47:17

Temperatures at or below freezing.

Most will have a fine winter's day

0:47:170:47:23

with sunshine, but we continue to

have showers in the north and west.

0:47:230:47:27

Showers in the north-west will be

wintry, nowhere near as abundant as

0:47:270:47:31

yesterday. And we will see cloud

gathered across western areas into

0:47:310:47:35

the afternoon, which will turn the

sunshine hazy. A few showers may be

0:47:350:47:39

into Northern Ireland, but it will

be across parts of western Scotland

0:47:390:47:44

where you can see the showers coming

and going. Sleet and snow and maybe

0:47:440:47:49

thundered mixed in. Cabbages for the

afternoon, similar to what we've

0:47:490:47:54

seen in recent days. Peaking at

about... INAUDIBLE... Given the fact

0:47:540:48:01

that the sun has a bit of strength

to it, it will feel pleasant in the

0:48:010:48:05

afternoon. Tonight, as we see the

sky is clear in southern parts,

0:48:050:48:11

there will be a frost. Northern

Ireland, maybe the heavy burst of

0:48:110:48:16

rain. That will keep temperatures

up. To the north we will have a

0:48:160:48:24

frost. To the south, frost as well.

Through Saturday we will see

0:48:240:48:28

southern and eastern areas staying

largely dry through the morning.

0:48:280:48:31

Cloudy into the afternoon. After a

spell of rain and drizzle in

0:48:310:48:35

northern England, Wales and the

Midlands, that will fizzle out. To

0:48:350:48:41

the north we will have showers and

some wintry showers. Dry weather

0:48:410:48:44

around on Saturday. Some sunny

spells and still staying fairly

0:48:440:48:49

mild. Through Saturday night we will

see the cloud and rain start to ease

0:48:490:48:54

where we have it in southern areas.

But thicker cloud will gradually

0:48:540:48:58

pushing from the west. Temperatures

will stay up, so we shouldn't see

0:48:580:49:02

much of a frost, but by and large

sum eastern areas will still see

0:49:020:49:06

breaks in the cloud, with sunshine.

In the west there will be more

0:49:060:49:10

outbreaks of rain and drizzle, but

not the temperatures. Single figures

0:49:100:49:14

only just. Most places into double

figures by this stage. The weekend,

0:49:140:49:20

it will be mild. Saturday isn't bad

for many. In the Sunday we will have

0:49:200:49:25

outbreaks of rain and drizzle out in

the west. That's how your forecast

0:49:250:49:28

is looking. I will bring you

0:49:280:49:30

the west. That's how your forecast

is looking. I will bring you more

0:49:300:49:31

wonderful sites throughout the

morning.

0:49:310:49:34

It will be glorious. Thanks very

much.

0:49:340:49:39

It has been 30 years since GCSEs

were introduced in England, Wales

0:49:390:49:43

and Northern Ireland, but one

subject remains tricky for many.

0:49:430:49:50

Maths.

0:49:500:49:54

Our teenagers rank 27th in the world

and that poor performance

0:49:540:49:57

continues into adulthood.

So what's the problem?

0:49:570:49:59

We're launching a special

series to try to find out,

0:49:590:50:01

We're launching a special

series to try to find out,

0:50:010:50:02

and to show that maths can be

interesting - and even fun.

0:50:020:50:05

Breakfast's Jayne McCubbin

and Tim Muffet and Naga will be

0:50:050:50:08

taking their maths GCSE this summer.

0:50:080:50:10

Revision or learning has begun.

Let's

0:50:100:50:11

Let's have a look.

0:50:110:50:17

We are going back to school. I never

knew what this was for.

What I

0:50:170:50:28

remember from my maths days, I

remember phone is the size of house

0:50:280:50:34

bricks.

0:50:340:50:35

remember phone is the size of house

bricks.

I can't remember much maths.

0:50:350:50:37

I love learning every day, so if

anything I'm going to get to sharpen

0:50:370:50:41

the old brain and probably really

appreciate just how tough it is.

0:50:410:50:45

Good morning. I'm going to be your

maths teacher throughout your GCSE

0:50:450:50:52

course.

Good morning!

You may

remember me from University

0:50:520:50:57

Challenge. I have a doctorate from

Cambridge University. In four months

0:50:570:51:06

you will be setting -- sitting the

maths GCSE for real. I set you a

0:51:060:51:16

challenge, our past GCSE paper. How

did you find them?

Really bad. For

0:51:160:51:23

me, expand and simple five. What

does that even mean? It's just a

0:51:230:51:30

terminology which I haven't used for

like 30 odd years.

Hearing you say

0:51:300:51:35

that is already making me feel a bit

nervous. What did I get that school

0:51:350:51:39

from maths in old money? I got a D.

I hope I can help make it a bit more

0:51:390:51:51

at the end of it.

I quite enjoyed

remembering some of the maths I used

0:51:510:51:55

to do. I love algebra. I did my

maths GCSE a couple of years early

0:51:550:52:01

and got an A. I always loved maths,

but I will be honest, I haven't seen

0:52:010:52:06

a paper in years. This is how you

measure the area of the circle and

0:52:060:52:11

the circumference of a circle.

OK,

Pythagoras theorem. Can anyone tell

0:52:110:52:16

me?

Hypotenuse.

0:52:160:52:23

me?

Hypotenuse.

Jane, do you know

what a squared is? If it is three

0:52:240:52:29

centimetres?

Nine. I know I

shouldn't be thinking this, but I am

0:52:290:52:34

thinking I haven't got a maths

brain.

There's no such thing as a

0:52:340:52:39

maths brain. People have a negative

or positive experiences to maths and

0:52:390:52:44

that leads them to think they can or

can't do maths.

How important is it

0:52:440:52:49

for parents to not give off this

message being I'm terrible at maths,

0:52:490:52:53

I don't understand it?

50% of

working age adults have the new

0:52:530:52:58

Brucie skills you would expect of an

11-year-old. So they haven't got a

0:52:580:53:02

clue when their kids ask them for

help. If we are going to change the

0:53:020:53:06

way maths is perceived in the

country, have to work with adults as

0:53:060:53:10

well.

I think we are going to enjoy

it. I'm going to be the positive

0:53:100:53:13

one.

I wonder if I'm beyond that

point in my life and it's too late.

0:53:130:53:19

We can do this.

One fear down, 58 to

go.

Can we do it? Yes, we can!

You

0:53:190:53:31

saw him dead, one of the biggest

maths brains in business and he is

0:53:310:53:36

helping us that the morning. -- saw

< KIM good morning. Why do 70 people

0:53:360:53:42

a problem with maths?

It isn't an

easy subject but it is also an image

0:53:420:53:49

problem. There is a perception that

there is a maths brain, people can

0:53:490:53:53

do it or not. I think that's wrong.

Secondly there is a perception that

0:53:530:53:59

it is almost like a badge of honour

to say you can't do maths and that's

0:53:590:54:05

something I want to tackle.

I think

our teenagers are 27th in the world.

0:54:050:54:10

That's not good for business or

future.

Absolutely. We need to find

0:54:100:54:15

a way of encouraging kids to become

better at maths and parents and

0:54:150:54:18

adults to change their attitude

towards it, they can support their

0:54:180:54:21

children.

I was one of those

annoying kids that really enjoyed

0:54:210:54:27

doing your times table when you got

up and you could only sit down when

0:54:270:54:33

you got it right. That's

intimidating for a lot of children,

0:54:330:54:36

the way it is taught.

Sometimes it

is binary, right or wrong, but I

0:54:360:54:42

think we need to change the way that

is perceived. Mathematics is more

0:54:420:54:46

than getting the right answers. It's

about creative thinking and if we

0:54:460:54:49

can move it to see the exciting part

of it.

Something we are excited

0:54:490:54:56

about is you have set up the

challenge this morning, which we can

0:54:560:55:00

do at home.

Shall we explain it? It

is the year of the dog, so I am

0:55:000:55:09

going to be hosting a handover party

at the zoo for the top dogs.

0:55:090:55:15

Roosters and monkeys as well. In

this particular party there are

0:55:150:55:21

twice as many dogs as roosters and

twice as many roosters as monkeys.

0:55:210:55:26

And we assume that all the dogs have

four feet and all the roosters and

0:55:260:55:32

monkeys have two feet. So there are

88 animal feet at this party. How

0:55:320:55:37

many dogs, roosters and monkeys are

there at this party?

It will take a

0:55:370:55:44

little bit of working out, but it is

definitely doable. We are going to

0:55:440:55:50

put our puzzle on our Twitter page

and if you want to find out the

0:55:500:55:54

answer, try to GCSE maths question.

And people can go online and get the

0:55:540:56:02

answers. Interactive learning is

more encouraged now?

People are used

0:56:020:56:07

to interactivity and getting answers

immediately, so the more we can

0:56:070:56:12

adapt to that the better.

Thank you.

We will put the puzzle on our social

0:56:120:56:21

media page.

0:56:210:56:21

Time now to get the news,

travel and weather where you are.

0:56:210:59:44

with patchy outbreaks of light rain

and drizzle later.

0:59:440:59:46

Have a nice day.

0:59:460:59:47

Plenty more on our website

at the usual address.

0:59:470:59:50

Bye for now.

0:59:500:59:52

Hello, this is Breakfast,

0:59:520:59:53

with Charlie Stayt and Naga

Munchetty.

0:59:530:59:54

The suspect in America's latest high

school shooting appears

0:59:540:59:57

in court charged with

17 counts of murder.

0:59:570:59:59

19-year-old Nikolas Cruz

is accused of carrying

0:59:591:00:01

out his killing spree

at a campus in Florida.

1:00:011:00:05

Police say that just moments

after his attack the teenager ate

1:00:051:00:08

at a McDonald's and Subway

before being arrested.

1:00:081:00:16

Tributes have been paid

to his victims as vigils.

1:00:181:00:22

One teacher told us of her harrowing

ordeal.

1:00:221:00:26

One student came to my door and he

shot out a glass panel of the door,

1:00:261:00:34

hitting students as he did that.

1:00:341:00:42

Good morning, it's Friday

the 16th of February.

1:00:481:00:51

Also this morning:

1:00:511:00:51

The aid

worker at the centre of the Oxfam

1:00:511:00:54

scandal speaks publically

1:00:541:00:55

for the first time as he denies

using prostitutes in Haiti.

1:00:551:00:58

And in sport,

1:00:581:00:58

Dom's done it...

1:00:581:00:59

It's a first medal for Britain

at the Winter Olympics.

1:00:591:01:07

Behind Parsons and Dom Parsons

unbelievably has his medal!

Yes,

1:01:081:01:12

Don!

For Great Britain!

1:01:121:01:15

Young people have just one in four

chance of gettign on the property

1:01:151:01:18

ladder according new research.

1:01:181:01:19

It's blamed on rising

prices and a shortgage

1:01:191:01:21

of new homes being built.

1:01:211:01:24

And Breakfast goes back to school.

1:01:241:01:26

We're beginning a new series looking

at the UK's maths problem,

1:01:261:01:29

some of our very best brains will be

put through their GCSE paces.

1:01:291:01:32

And Matt has the weather.

1:01:321:01:38

Are we seeing the first signs of

spring?

Good morning. Join me

1:01:381:01:44

through the morning at Blenheim

Palace in Oxfordshire, looking for

1:01:441:01:48

signs of spring as temperatures rise

over the next few days but Friday, a

1:01:481:01:53

frosty scene but a pleasant winter's

day ahead. Your full forecast in 15

1:01:531:01:57

minutes.

1:01:571:01:58

Good morning.

1:01:581:01:59

First, our main story.

1:01:591:02:00

The 19-year-old accused of carrying

out a school shooting in Florida,

1:02:001:02:03

which left 17 people dead,

has appeared in court charged

1:02:031:02:06

with premeditated murder.

1:02:061:02:07

Nikolas Cruz went on a killing

spree in the town

1:02:071:02:09

of Parkland on Wednesday.

1:02:091:02:10

The FBI is now investigating how it

handled a warning that the teenager

1:02:101:02:14

reportedly posted on YouTube

claiming he would be

1:02:141:02:16

a professional school shooter.

1:02:161:02:24

Vigils were held late into the night

in tribute to the victims,

1:02:261:02:29

as Nada Tawfiq reports.

1:02:291:02:30

They came to mourn the lives lost

and the lives scarred

1:02:301:02:33

by this senseless attack.

1:02:331:02:34

Neighbours, friends and the students

of Stoneman Douglas High comforted

1:02:341:02:37

one another as best they could.

1:02:371:02:40

Jed Westmer was among the students

who ran in panic once the first

1:02:401:02:44

shots were fired.

1:02:441:02:45

He doesn't know if he can handle

returning to the halls

1:02:451:02:48

where his classmates'

lives were cut short.

1:02:481:02:50

I don't know if I'll be able

to cope with just walking

1:02:501:02:53

through the bottom floor

of the freshman building,

1:02:531:02:55

knowing that everything

has been cleaned up...

1:02:551:02:57

Like, everything -

you can almost imagine blood

1:02:571:02:59

on the walls, bodies on the floor.

1:02:591:03:01

No one is going to be able to walk

through that building.

1:03:011:03:04

No one.

1:03:041:03:10

All 17 victims have

now been identified.

1:03:101:03:12

Among them talented students,

star athletes and Aaron Feis,

1:03:121:03:14

a beloved football coach

and security guard.

1:03:141:03:16

He has been called a hero

for shielding children

1:03:161:03:18

from the gunman's bullets.

1:03:181:03:26

Nikolas Cruz appeared in court

briefly on 17 charges

1:03:261:03:28

of premeditated murder.

1:03:281:03:29

His lawyer said he was sad

and remorseful and described him

1:03:291:03:32

as a broken human being.

1:03:321:03:34

The sheriff's office said

he confessed to opening fire

1:03:341:03:36

on his former school.

1:03:361:03:40

He told authorities he bought

a drink at Subway and stopped

1:03:401:03:43

at McDonald's after the rampage.

1:03:431:03:47

On social media, Cruz often posed

with guns and in one post he wrote

1:03:471:03:50

he would be a professional

school shooter.

1:03:501:03:52

Those who knew him were

troubled by his behaviour.

1:03:521:04:00

He's someone who used racial slurs,

who was just awful to other people

1:04:011:04:05

and I'm sure he was bullied himself

by some but he was the type

1:04:051:04:08

of person where people

were scared to

1:04:081:04:10

bully him because they knew

something could happen.

1:04:101:04:13

They just didn't think

this would happen.

1:04:131:04:17

These terrifying scenes of students

completely helpless and trembling

1:04:171:04:20

with fear have shaken the nation

1:04:201:04:21

and they have reignited

the debate on gun control.

1:04:211:04:24

People here are in a state of shock,

that someone from their own

1:04:241:04:27

community could be capable of such

killing,

1:04:271:04:29

and that their city now

joins the long list of America's

1:04:291:04:32

school shooting tragedies.

1:04:321:04:40

Earlier on BBC Breakfast,

we spoke to Ivy Schamis,

1:04:451:04:48

who is a teacher at the Marjory

Stoneman Douglas High School

1:04:481:04:51

and witnessed the attack.

1:04:511:04:53

She was teaching when the gunman

tried to force his way into her

1:04:531:04:57

classroom using his rifle.

1:04:571:04:59

There was a lot of students and so

we just tried to go behind my desk,

1:04:591:05:05

behind the file cabinet, behind the

laptop cart. There's a lot of stuff

1:05:051:05:10

in the classroom so they tried to

find cover. It was instantaneous but

1:05:101:05:15

within seconds the student came to

my door and he shot out the whole

1:05:151:05:21

glass panel inside the door, hitting

students while he did that. We

1:05:211:05:27

didn't know it at the time but he

hit several students and they were

1:05:271:05:32

injured, and I didn't realise at

that moment, two female and a male

1:05:321:05:37

student, who were seniors, and ready

to go to college soon, they were

1:05:371:05:41

killed.

1:05:411:05:47

Ivy Schamis there, a teacher, and

two of the students in her class

1:05:471:05:52

were killed.

1:05:521:06:02

The former Oxfam director,

accused of hiring prostitutes

1:06:031:06:05

while working in Haiti and Chad,

has denied paying for sex but said

1:06:051:06:08

he had made some mistakes.

1:06:081:06:10

In an open letter,

Roland Van Hauwermeiren

1:06:101:06:12

admitted he'd had an

intimate relationship

1:06:121:06:13

with a woman in Haiti,

but said she was not a prostiture.

1:06:131:06:16

The international head

of the charity, Winnie Byanyima

1:06:161:06:19

has invited anyone who's

been abused by Oxfam

1:06:191:06:21

staff to tell their story

and obtain justice.

1:06:211:06:23

Our diplomatic correspondent,

James Landale, has been

1:06:231:06:25

speaking to her.

1:06:251:06:26

The earthquake that struck in 2010

reduced much of Haiti to rubble.

1:06:261:06:29

But the after-shocks

are still being felt by Oxfam.

1:06:291:06:31

In her native Ugandan,

Oxfam's global head said sorry

1:06:311:06:34

for the sexual exploitation carried

out by some of her staff in Haiti,

1:06:341:06:37

something she told me she only found

out about last week.

1:06:371:06:45

I'm inviting anyone who has been

a victim of abuse to come forward,

1:06:481:06:52

we're going to do justice,

we'll atone for the past.

1:06:521:06:55

Right now thousands and thousands

of Oxfam staff doing the right thing

1:06:551:06:58

in the most dangerous

places in the world.

1:06:581:07:01

She promised a new independent

commission to investigate Oxfam's

1:07:011:07:04

handling of past cases,

tougher new checks on staff

1:07:041:07:06

work references and more cash

for safeguarding vulnerable people.

1:07:061:07:08

Changes that might in the future

stop Oxfam employing men like Roland

1:07:081:07:12

van Hauwermeiren, its former

director in Haiti, who has denied

1:07:121:07:14

paying for sex.

1:07:141:07:20

TRANSLATION:

Some unprofessional

journalists are implying that Oxfam

1:07:201:07:22

organises sex orgies

using money from donations,

1:07:221:07:24

which is absolutely untrue.

1:07:241:07:32

What is true is that Oxfam now faces

the huge task of trying to rebuild

1:07:351:07:39

public confidence.

1:07:391:07:40

Winnie Byanyima said more Oxfam

staff could be sacked if they're

1:07:401:07:43

found to have mishandled

past cases, but...

1:07:431:07:45

We have almost 10,000 staff around

1:07:451:07:46

the world working in more than 90

countries.

1:07:461:07:54

The majority of those

are doing the right thing.

1:08:001:08:03

You cannot give that guarantee

that there are no sexual predators

1:08:031:08:06

working for your organisation?

1:08:061:08:07

How would I be able to guarantee

that there is no one

1:08:071:08:10

who is going to offend?

1:08:101:08:12

What I can guarantee

is that we will build a new culture

1:08:121:08:15

that doesn't tolerate

that behaviour.

1:08:151:08:19

What went on in Haiti has

cost Oxfam donations,

1:08:191:08:22

public trust and

celebrity ambassadors.

1:08:221:08:26

Miss Byanyima said

the organisation was

1:08:261:08:30

demoralising but she

insisted it would survive.

1:08:301:08:33

What doesn't kill it, she said,

will make it stronger.

1:08:331:08:35

James Landale, BBC News.

1:08:351:08:37

The Football Association

is to review thousands of files

1:08:371:08:40

to find out how much was known

about the abuse carried out

1:08:401:08:43

by former youth coach Barry Bennell

as part of its internal review.

1:08:431:08:46

Yesterday he was found guilty

of another seven counts

1:08:461:08:49

of sexually abusing boys,

meaning he's now been convicted

1:08:491:08:51

of a total of 43 offences

between 1979 and 1990.

1:08:511:08:54

Earlier we spoke to one

of his victims, David Lean,

1:08:591:09:02

who gave us his reaction

to the verdict.

1:09:021:09:05

It's great to obviously finally see

justice. I don't really feel I got

1:09:071:09:13

justice in 2015, he just got a

two-year sentence, served 12 months.

1:09:131:09:18

I always knew there was going to be

many more, told everybody there was

1:09:181:09:23

many more, and finally it's been

shown there's been many more.

1:09:231:09:29

Britain's bus network has shrunk

to levels last seen in the late

1:09:291:09:33

1980s, that's according

to a BBC investigation.

1:09:331:09:35

Rising car use and cuts to public

funding are being blamed

1:09:351:09:37

for a loss of 134 million

miles of coverage over

1:09:371:09:40

the past decade alone.

1:09:401:09:41

The Campaign for Better Transport

says the scale of the miles lost

1:09:411:09:45

is a sign that buses are on course

to be cut to the same extent

1:09:451:09:49

railways were in the 1960s.

1:09:491:09:50

The Hollywood actress

Jennifer Aniston has announced

1:09:501:09:52

she is to seperate from her husband

Justin Theroux after two

1:09:521:09:55

years of marriage.

1:09:551:09:56

The pair, who were married

in a secret ceremony in Los Angeles

1:09:561:09:59

in 2015, reportedly met on the set

of comedy film Wanderlust.

1:09:591:10:02

They gave no reason for the split

but said it was a mutual decision

1:10:021:10:06

which had been lovingly made

at the end of last year.

1:10:061:10:14

So, Mike, we have one, we were

hoping for another one, I'm talking

1:10:171:10:24

medals.

At the Winter Olympics.

But

we didn't get one?

Isn't quite over

1:10:241:10:28

for Andrew Musgrave in the

cross-country, last time I looked,

1:10:281:10:32

18th, out of the medals at the

moment but we should celebrate the

1:10:321:10:35

first medal for Great Britain in the

Winter Games, Dom Parsons, 30,

1:10:351:10:41

trained at Bath, started as a runner

before switching to skeleton and an

1:10:411:10:45

historic moment for British sliding.

Day seven has already proved a

1:10:451:10:51

magnificent one for Team GB, as Ben

Croucher now reports.

1:10:511:10:55

ANNOUNCER:

Dom Parsons!

1:10:551:10:56

At last!

1:10:561:10:57

Six days of medal-less

Olympics for Great Britain,

1:10:571:10:59

on the seventh that

demon was laid to rest.

1:10:591:11:01

Dom Parsons is doing a PhD

in mechanical engineering,

1:11:011:11:04

a study of calm before the most

important two runs of his life.

1:11:041:11:07

Lying in fourth, Parsons

got his angles just right,

1:11:071:11:10

sliding down the track but crucially

1:11:101:11:11

up the standings

after his first run.

1:11:111:11:19

All he had to do now

was to finish it off.

1:11:221:11:25

If he beat the Russian

athlete behind him he'd be

1:11:251:11:28

guaranteed a medal,

a first for a British man

1:11:281:11:30

in the sport since 1948.

1:11:301:11:32

COMMENTATOR:

He's in front

marginally of Tregubov.

1:11:321:11:34

But it's uphill for the line now.

1:11:341:11:36

Off bend 16, is it to be?

No!

1:11:361:11:38

Oh, no!

1:11:381:11:38

He misses out by two

hundredths of a second.

1:11:381:11:41

So was that wait for

a medal going to continue?

1:11:411:11:44

Parsons didn't have too long to find

out, needing a slipup

1:11:441:11:47

from Latvia's Martins Dukurs.

1:11:471:11:48

Yes!

Behind Parsons.

1:11:481:11:48

Dom Parsons unbelievably

has his medal

1:11:481:11:50

for Great Britain!

Yes, Dom!

1:11:501:11:58

I thought I'd lost it

and after that second run,

1:11:591:12:04

well, fourth run,

I thought it had gone away.

1:12:041:12:06

Yeah, I looked up at

the time, made a couple

1:12:061:12:09

too many mistakes on that run.

1:12:091:12:11

But Martins made more

mistakes and he's the last

1:12:111:12:13

person I thought would

make those mistakes.

1:12:131:12:15

Parsons' teammates were quick

to congratulate him as well.

1:12:151:12:19

Speedskater Elise Christie,

having suffered her own medal

1:12:191:12:21

agony, was one of the first

to express her delight.

1:12:211:12:24

Could this now be a catalyst

for the rest of Team GB

1:12:241:12:27

and men's skeleton?

1:12:271:12:28

Maybe Dom doing that,

all the new team, the guys,

1:12:281:12:31

the development squad

1:12:311:12:32

behind him have proven it isn't

impossible and the girls have got

1:12:321:12:35

the medals and now the guys have

started it with Dom,

1:12:351:12:38

and let's see

1:12:381:12:39

what the future brings more

British spell skeleton.

1:12:391:12:45

Now Parsons has got Britain

finally up and running,

1:12:451:12:48

the wait for another medal

might not be too long,

1:12:481:12:50

the women

could add to it tomorrow.

Ben Croucher, BBC News.

1:12:521:12:58

Congratulations to Dom Parsons and

the first heats for the women, Laura

1:12:581:13:01

Dees, Lizzy Yarnold later today, and

we will have a special interview

1:13:011:13:08

with Lizzy Yarnold later in the

programme.

Thanks, Mike.

1:13:081:13:13

Matt is going to have the weather

outside Blenheim Palace this

1:13:131:13:17

morning.

1:13:171:13:17

Let's return now to our top story

and the murder of 17 people

1:13:171:13:20

in the deadliest US school

shooting since 2012.

1:13:201:13:23

Teachers and pupils ran

for cover as 19-year-old

1:13:231:13:25

Nikolas Cruz began his attack.

1:13:251:13:28

We're going to talk in a moment to a

commentator for the National Rifle

1:13:281:13:35

Association, Antonia Okafor.

1:13:351:13:40

Also joining us is Greg Pittman,

a teacher at the Marjory Stoneman

1:13:401:13:43

Douglas High School where

the attack took place.

1:13:431:13:45

Greg, thank you for talking to us on

BBC Breakfast this morning, this

1:13:451:13:49

can't be easy for you. I should

first of all ask, how are you?

I'm

1:13:491:13:53

doing OK. Some bad moments with

students... INAUDIBLE... Some have

1:13:531:14:04

deceased and are injured.

Greg, we

are just... I apologise profusely,

1:14:041:14:11

we having a few technical problems,

your sound is cutting in and out. We

1:14:111:14:16

will try to sort that out, talk to

our next guest and come back to you

1:14:161:14:20

and talk to you in a moment.

Let's

talk to Antonia Okafor, a member of

1:14:201:14:25

the National Rifle Association. Good

morning, Antonia. Thanks for your

1:14:251:14:30

time. What are your thoughts this

morning? We should says straightaway

1:14:301:14:35

that you are a gun owner yourself

and someone who believes absolutely

1:14:351:14:39

in the right to bear arms, what are

your thoughts this morning?

Thanks

1:14:391:14:47

for having me on. My condolences to

those who are family and friends of

1:14:471:14:52

the victims. It's a time of right

now in America and the world and

1:14:521:15:00

unfortunately these things keep

happening -- time of mourning. Part

1:15:001:15:04

of that is that we have to have a

substantial conversation about what

1:15:041:15:08

it looks like as an owners -- gun

owners and what reform looks like.

1:15:081:15:17

People are talking about gun control

right now, but we need to empower

1:15:171:15:22

those who are law-abiding and who

would be able to stop or at least

1:15:221:15:28

stop those people who are criminals

from engaging with those who are the

1:15:281:15:33

most vulnerable, and that's our

children and schools.

You said

1:15:331:15:37

people are talking about gun control

right now but many people are

1:15:371:15:42

noticing that Donald Trump made no

reference to even thinking about the

1:15:421:15:46

issue of gun control in his comments

about what happened at the high

1:15:461:15:50

school in Florida.

I would disagree.

I think what people think about gun

1:15:501:15:56

control unfortunately is that we

just look at this object and we

1:15:561:16:02

think that is a solution, takeaway

the gun. But we don't talk about who

1:16:021:16:09

is behind that firearm and I think

that's what Donald Trump is doing.

1:16:091:16:15

He is making the

1:16:151:16:23

He is making the conversation about

whether he had an automatic rifle or

1:16:231:16:27

not, really making it a about

whether this should have -- whether

1:16:271:16:35

he should have had this type of gun,

with mental health issues. Because

1:16:351:16:40

many politicians bring back to what

we have been talking about for

1:16:401:16:44

years, which is obviously not

working.

Talking about Nikolas Cruz

1:16:441:16:48

for a moment and obviously there are

various stories emerging about him.

1:16:481:16:52

We don't yet know the full details,

that it is suggested that he had

1:16:521:16:56

treatment for depression. We

understand he put a YouTube post

1:16:561:17:02

outlast year saying he would be a

professional school shooter, but

1:17:021:17:08

this was a 19-year-old who was in

possession of an AR-15 rifle and had

1:17:081:17:14

countless magazines. A lot of people

would be saying if he is not the

1:17:141:17:19

kind of person who should not have

the right to have an automatic

1:17:191:17:23

weapon, then who?

Absolutely. I

think that's the reason why

1:17:231:17:30

President Trump brought up the

mental health illness aspect of it,

1:17:301:17:35

because this is an aspect of that, a

real central part of the

1:17:351:17:41

conversation that we need to have.

People are talking about the AR-15.

1:17:411:17:45

I've been on this programme and

spoke about how I own an AR-15, a

1:17:451:17:49

semiautomatic rifle, but we also

spoke about the church in Texas

1:17:491:17:57

where they had someone who was an

NRA firearm constructor who was able

1:17:571:18:03

to be a mass shooter with an AR-15.

Can I just make a couple of points

1:18:031:18:08

and let you address these. Some

people and possibly some of the

1:18:081:18:14

people who are members of the NRA

say one of the solutions is more

1:18:141:18:18

weaponry in schools and we heard

this morning from one of the

1:18:181:18:22

teachers in the school who lost

within our own classroom to pupils

1:18:221:18:28

saying that there is an armed police

officer on campus, but it didn't

1:18:281:18:33

stop this and it's partly because

you have a young man with an

1:18:331:18:37

automatic weapon who can cause so

much damage so quickly.

Right.

1:18:371:18:44

Again, not automatic, a

semiautomatic, which means one

1:18:441:18:48

trigger pool, which is the same as

handguns, just that has more

1:18:481:18:53

capacity, more magazine capacity. So

again it is that one armed guard was

1:18:531:19:00

not able to get to that person, the

shooter, in time. So what a lot of

1:19:001:19:05

people are talking about now, and I

used to be on the fence about this,

1:19:051:19:12

but people are adamant that if you

are off campus and you are able to

1:19:121:19:17

do so, you pass the cheques you need

to in order to carry a gun, then if

1:19:171:19:22

we think these teachers and these

administrators and the security

1:19:221:19:24

guards... We put our trust in them

to defend our children, why aren't

1:19:241:19:30

we allowing them and giving them the

tools that they need to protect them

1:19:301:19:35

in situations like this?

Thank you

very much for your time this

1:19:351:19:40

morning. That's Antonia Okafor, a

member of the NRA.

1:19:401:19:46

We can talk again now to Gregory

Pittman. Thank you very much for

1:19:461:19:52

your patience. I wonder if you were

able to hear what Antonia was

1:19:521:19:56

saying?

She is completely wrong. A

survey of the majority of the people

1:19:561:20:04

and majority of teachers showed

additional firearms is not the

1:20:041:20:08

solution. INAUDIBLE... My associated

would be alive, not dead. A good

1:20:081:20:17

friend of mine had to offer students

killed. They were able to shoot

1:20:171:20:22

through the wall and that through a

matter of seconds. All of these

1:20:221:20:28

people were killed in a couple of

minutes. I was at the school, I know

1:20:281:20:32

what the feeling is, the feeling in

the US is not more guns. These

1:20:321:20:37

automatic assault weapons, we are

determined, those of us who have

1:20:371:20:41

been affected, if these words on

campuses and schools we wouldn't

1:20:411:20:45

have any of these 18 mass shootings

that we had in the US this year and

1:20:451:20:49

most of them were a result of these

weapons such as this, being able to

1:20:491:20:54

shoot hundreds of bullets in a

matter of minutes. More weapons is

1:20:541:20:58

not the solution and we are strongly

against that and if you do a survey

1:20:581:21:02

and the checkout with the American

people, those would be surveyed and

1:21:021:21:06

they would say no and use other

words like "hell, no". They would

1:21:061:21:13

say that would only add to the

problem.

We spoke earlier to your

1:21:131:21:18

colleague

1:21:181:21:23

colleague Ivy, who told us what she

experienced. You have made clear it

1:21:231:21:26

you don't want to be armed as

teachers.

We made the same point, if

1:21:261:21:33

you listen to her entire interview

earlier.

Of course.

What she also

1:21:331:21:40

spoke to us about is what happened

at the school, what she saw and what

1:21:401:21:45

she experienced. You are still

grieving, you are still very

1:21:451:21:50

traumatised, we understand that.

What many of our viewers would love

1:21:501:21:54

to understand what you saw, what was

happening and how you all had to

1:21:541:22:00

deal with this.

1:22:001:22:01

On Wednesday in the morning we

practice fire alarms every month and

1:22:051:22:12

practice drills for bombings. We

have a specific routine for each

1:22:121:22:17

that we do. We assumed in the

afternoon at 2:20pm it was a fire

1:22:171:22:22

alarm. We didn't think it was

practice because we would get out in

1:22:221:22:27

20 minutes at the normal time to

practise, we didn't know whether it

1:22:271:22:31

was accidental, they learned

something, or maybe it was real. Do

1:22:311:22:37

immediately moved our kids out. I

told them we had to go. So we moved

1:22:371:22:41

out to where we would go to, where

my students were supposed to go, and

1:22:411:22:45

as we were going out another teacher

came up and told me that he was

1:22:451:22:49

close to the area where we think it

took lace and he heard the shooting,

1:22:491:22:53

he could hear shots. Students

started receiving video from other

1:22:531:22:59

students in the brooms, letting them

know that it was a shooting.

1:22:591:23:03

Administration came on and we needed

to move the students away further,

1:23:031:23:06

so we started moving everyone

further away. You could see the

1:23:061:23:12

panic and fear in the faces of the

students and we were trying to

1:23:121:23:16

maintain calm and try to move

everybody safely away. Students were

1:23:161:23:20

trying to climb fences. We were

yelling and shouting. Later that

1:23:201:23:25

evening student came up to me and

said he didn't know my name, but he

1:23:251:23:31

said I was one of the students

trying to climb the fence and you

1:23:311:23:35

told me to get down and I'm glad you

did and I'm sorry that we were

1:23:351:23:39

trying to climb the fence, but we

were afraid. I said, I know, that's

1:23:391:23:43

why we were trying to redirect you.

But we were very concerned. We knew

1:23:431:23:47

something very bad was happening and

it was our concern to move the

1:23:471:23:51

students out, you know, I have good

moments and bad moments in

1:23:511:24:01

everything. I know the three adults

that were killed. I know two of them

1:24:011:24:04

very well. One of them has only just

recently started teaching at our

1:24:041:24:09

school. But we had practised and

practised. That went through fine.

1:24:091:24:14

What I will say is we need more

money and more funding for

1:24:141:24:18

additional security and we do need

more money in the mental health

1:24:181:24:23

area. A couple of areas we need

help. But as far as our drills and

1:24:231:24:27

what we needed to do, that went

perfectly. Unfortunately, the one

1:24:271:24:30

thing is that when we do a code red,

initially when the first alarm went

1:24:301:24:39

out it was a fire drill and we did

not hear code red. That came on

1:24:391:24:45

shortly after but we were already

out in a field where we couldn't

1:24:451:24:48

hear. Seamus and some of the

teachers did here and they did what

1:24:481:24:53

they were supposed to do.

Unfortunately the shooter was able

1:24:531:24:56

to shoot through the doors and

people were shot in the brooms or in

1:24:561:24:59

the hallways.

Thank you so much for

talking to us and persevering with

1:24:591:25:03

the technical issues. Really good to

get your view and we wish you, your

1:25:031:25:09

colleagues and of course the

students well.

Thank you very much

1:25:091:25:15

for letting me tell you what

happened.

Apologies for the

1:25:151:25:20

technical problems.

1:25:201:25:24

Matt's out in Oxfordshire this

morning at one of UNESCO's

1:25:241:25:27

World Heritage Sites.

1:25:271:25:30

What is that beautiful building?

Lenin palace, looking gorgeous.

It

1:25:301:25:36

certainly is. Absolutely stunning

architecture and a lovely place to

1:25:361:25:41

start my Friday morning. The style

of this is English baroque, but it's

1:25:411:25:46

not just about the building, it's

also about the wonderful parkland

1:25:461:25:49

surroundings. That is the queen

pool, named for Elisabeth first. You

1:25:491:25:56

will notice on the grass around it a

frost covering at the moment. It is

1:25:561:26:02

a chilly start.

1:26:021:26:04

frost covering at the moment. It is

a chilly start. It is getting close

1:26:041:26:06

to -2 and it's a frosty start for

many. But have a look at the

1:26:061:26:10

forecast. A stunning start, as it is

for many. Most of us having a fine

1:26:101:26:15

winter day, but we will see more

wintry showers towards the north and

1:26:151:26:20

west. A few showers already across

parts of north and west Scotland,

1:26:201:26:25

falling as rain, hail, sleet and

snow. They may come with under later

1:26:251:26:29

and we may see rain spreading into

the west of Northern Ireland. Most

1:26:291:26:33

of the UK will stay dry and even

into the afternoon many eastern area

1:26:331:26:37

stays sunny. Inner West we have more

cloud putting in. That bring in high

1:26:371:26:41

cloud, hazy sunshine and that hazy

sunshine extends into Northern

1:26:411:26:46

Ireland. Maybe a bit of rain.

Showers continuing in the north and

1:26:461:26:51

west of Scotland. Not as many as the

past few days. Most places stay dry.

1:26:511:26:57

Wheezy and the north of Scotland.

Lighter winds than we've seen and it

1:26:571:27:02

will feel milder. Especially with

the strengthening sun. Temperatures

1:27:021:27:07

could be 11, 12 degrees, around six

degrees in parts of Scotland and

1:27:071:27:15

Northern Ireland. Sam Hill smell and

rain spreading across overnight. --

1:27:151:27:22

Summer Hill snow. Either side of it

clear skies overnight and the chance

1:27:221:27:26

of some frost. Not as much as the

night just gone. On Saturday there

1:27:261:27:30

will be more cloud, but for many a

dry day. Wet weather in parts of

1:27:301:27:35

northern England, with snow in the

Pennines. That will edge towards the

1:27:351:27:40

Midlands, but most of the rain will

this allowed. Cloudy further south

1:27:401:27:47

and east. Sunny spells and a couple

of showers to the northern half of

1:27:471:27:51

the UK. Temperature is still into

double figures in the south. Maybe

1:27:511:27:56

lifting a little more further north

as well. Into Sunday we should just

1:27:561:28:00

about avoid a frost because we have

more cloud. The breeze picks up into

1:28:001:28:05

Sunday. Sunday for many will be dry,

especially in the east, but it turns

1:28:051:28:10

cloudy from the west, with rain and

drizzle. Murky over the hills, but

1:28:101:28:16

temperatures still above where they

should be. Instead of having

1:28:161:28:20

temperatures below average for the

time of year, they are little bit

1:28:201:28:24

above. Once you get sunshine this

weekend, it does mean it may feel

1:28:241:28:29

like spring is around the corner.

But don't get too complacent.

1:28:291:28:35

It

1:28:351:28:35

But don't get too complacent.

It could get colder again next week.

1:28:351:28:37

Wonderful surroundings. Thank you

very much.

1:28:371:28:40

Time now to get the news,

travel and weather where you are.

1:28:401:32:00

of light rain and drizzle later.

1:32:001:32:01

Have a nice day.

1:32:011:32:09

Welcome back, you're watching

Breakfast with Charlie Stayt

1:32:121:32:14

and Naga Munchetty.

1:32:141:32:15

Here's a summary of the main stories

from BBC News:

1:32:151:32:18

The FBI

is investigating how it handled

1:32:181:32:20

a warning about the teenager accused

1:32:201:32:21

of carrying out Wednesday's school

shooting in Florida,

1:32:211:32:23

which left 17 dead.

1:32:231:32:31

Nikolas Cruz, 19, reportedly posted

a YouTube comment claiming

1:32:311:32:34

he would be a professional

school shooter.

1:32:341:32:35

Tributes were paid to his victims

with vigils through the night.

1:32:351:32:40

The former Oxfam director accused

of hiring prostitutes

1:32:401:32:42

while working in Haiti and Chad has

denied paying for sex but said

1:32:421:32:46

he had made some mistakes.

1:32:461:32:47

In an open letter,

he admitted he'd had

1:32:471:32:49

an intimate relationship

1:32:491:32:50

with a woman in Haiti,

but said she was not a prostiture.

1:32:501:32:53

The international

head of the charity

1:32:531:32:55

has invited anyone who's

been abused by Oxfam

1:32:551:32:57

staff to tell their story

and obtain justice.

1:32:571:33:04

The Football Association

is to review thousands of files

1:33:041:33:07

to find out how much was known

about the abuse carried out

1:33:071:33:10

by former youth coach Barry Bennell

as part of its internal review.

1:33:101:33:13

Yesterday he was found guilty

of another seven counts

1:33:131:33:16

of sexually abusing boys,

meaning he's now been convicted

1:33:161:33:18

of a total of 43 offences

between 1979 and 1990.

1:33:181:33:26

He will be sentenced on Monday.

1:33:281:33:30

A BBC investigation has revealed

a significant difference

1:33:301:33:32

between the highest earning male

and female consultants working

1:33:321:33:35

for the NHS in England.

1:33:351:33:36

Figures show that on

average full-time men

1:33:361:33:37

Figures show that on

average full-time men

1:33:371:33:38

owned £14,000 a year more

1:33:381:33:39

than their female counterparts

when including bonuses and overtime.

1:33:391:33:42

Only 5% of women among

the top 100 owners.

1:33:421:33:44

The Department of Health said it's

committed to ensuring

1:33:441:33:47

doctors are awarded fairly equally

regardless of gender.

The Hollywood actress

Jennifer Aniston has announced

1:33:501:33:52

she is to separate from her husband

Justin Theroux after two

1:33:521:33:55

years of marriage.

1:33:551:33:55

The pair, who were married

in a secret ceremony in Los Angeles

1:33:551:33:59

in 2015, reportedly met on the set

of comedy film Wanderlust.

1:33:591:34:02

They gave no reason for the split

but said it was a mutual decision

1:34:021:34:05

which had been "lovingly made"

at the end of last year.

1:34:051:34:13

Those are the main stories. Mike has

got the sport and we have got a

1:34:161:34:23

bronze medals.

Great Britain are on

the board thanks to Dom Parsons in

1:34:231:34:28

the skeleton. It will have the

biggest impact on his life because

1:34:281:34:36

of the finest margins when it comes

down to those tiny split seconds in

1:34:361:34:40

the skeleton, if everyone is excited

here I wonder what the reaction is

1:34:401:34:43

like in Pyeongchang.

1:34:431:34:51

Katherine Downes is there.

1:34:511:34:54

What's the reaction?

It will have

lifted the team because there's been

1:34:541:34:58

disappointments in the opening few

days, Elise Christie in the 500

1:34:581:35:02

metres shock track, she will go

again and hopefully this will take

1:35:021:35:05

the pressure of Majka because

everyone said she would deliver the

1:35:051:35:09

medals four Team GB -- short track.

I don't think Dom Parsons would be

1:35:091:35:13

too upset if I said this was an

unexpected medal. He was third

1:35:131:35:18

overnight, he worked himself over

the first to heats, then a terrible

1:35:181:35:21

night's sleep I'm sure he had and

after the third heat he was still

1:35:211:35:26

holding onto the third position but

he had to stay there in the final

1:35:261:35:31

run as well. Tregubov from the

Olympic Athletes from Russia jumped

1:35:311:35:37

up into the silver position after a

brilliant run from him, that pushed

1:35:371:35:41

Dom Parsons down but a clean run

from him kept him in that third

1:35:411:35:45

bronze medal position with two left

to go. At that point Dom Parsons

1:35:451:35:52

thought he had blown the medal

because the two above him were

1:35:521:35:55

expected to get the silver and gold.

An agonising wait for Dom Parsons

1:35:551:36:00

with the two-time silver-medallist

Martins Dukurs, who you would expect

1:36:001:36:05

true to form to come down the track

nice and clean and take the silver

1:36:051:36:09

medal, but I'm afraid a mistake from

Dukurs meant Dom Parsons held onto

1:36:091:36:15

the bronze medal so cute enormous

celebrations in the Team GB camp and

1:36:151:36:19

that is Great Britain's burst

skeleton medal in 70 years.

1:36:191:36:26

skeleton medal in 70 years. The hope

is that will open the floodgates now

1:36:271:36:30

four Team GB and more medals to come

and the big hope today was Andrew

1:36:301:36:36

Musgrave in the 15 kilometre

cross-country skiing. He came

1:36:361:36:40

seventh in the ski Afful on last

weekend and this was his favourite

1:36:401:36:43

event but I'm afraid it didn't go

quite the way Andrew Musgrave hoped

1:36:431:36:48

and he came over the line in 28. No

second medal for Team GB so far at

1:36:481:36:54

these dams, the big hope was an

Andrew Musgrave, but Dom Parsons got

1:36:541:37:01

third and I will be speaking to him

in about an hour -- Games.

Great

1:37:011:37:06

news, we will look forward to

joining you for that. At the end of

1:37:061:37:10

the Andrew Musgrave commentary, four

years ago he said he skied like a

1:37:101:37:19

tranquillised badger, at the end of

the commentary they said the badger

1:37:191:37:23

is still tranquillised.

A bit harsh.

He said it himself, though. He will

1:37:231:37:27

go again one more event, hopefully.

1:37:271:37:34

Today, Lizzy Yarnold

will start her quest

1:37:341:37:39

to become the first Briton ever

to retain a Winter Olympic title.

1:37:391:37:42

She's been building up to this

all winter and I went

1:37:421:37:45

to meet her during a World Cup

event in Germany.

1:37:451:37:52

Back on top of the mountain where

Lizzy Yarnold has spent the winter

1:37:521:37:56

preparing for her shot at Olympic

history. Hi, Lizzie, how are you?

1:37:561:38:01

Over a cup of tea in her hotel

apartment I met the sled that now

1:38:011:38:06

carries her dreams. Feel how heavy

that is, my goodness! I suppose you

1:38:061:38:11

just develop the strength.

You have

a knack for how to pick it up.

As

1:38:111:38:15

the moment arrives she's actually

been thinking about since winning

1:38:151:38:18

gold in Sochi four years ago.

It's

this big hairy goal I had as soon as

1:38:181:38:23

I finished in Sochi that I would

absolutely love to be selected for

1:38:231:38:27

another Olympic Games, but to be the

first British Winter Olympian to

1:38:271:38:32

retain my title would be making

history.

For Lizzy Yarnold and the

1:38:321:38:36

other athletes here it's just about

that minute when they throw

1:38:361:38:39

themselves down the tunnel of ice

and 90 mph, but before the Winter

1:38:391:38:44

Olympics they've been on the road

for 16 weeks away from home putting

1:38:441:38:49

up with the most hostile and coldest

conditions you can imagine just

1:38:491:38:53

trying to keep warm for hours on end

before it's finally their turn.

1:38:531:38:57

It's one reason Lizzy decided to

take a break, whole year away from

1:38:571:39:00

the sport, even if it was then a

shock when she returned.

I was doing

1:39:001:39:05

cycling and running and all these

different sports thinking I was

1:39:051:39:08

physically fit and then getting back

on a sled was really overwhelming.

1:39:081:39:12

The sensation of your body rattling

the whole way down, you know, when I

1:39:121:39:17

visualised practice being back on

the sled, I didn't envisage the

1:39:171:39:21

bums.

I got a taste of the pain your

body goes through when I went down

1:39:211:39:25

the track in Winterberg in Germany

in the relative comfort of a

1:39:251:39:29

bobsled. In a skeleton you're much

more exposed with your face inches

1:39:291:39:33

away from the eyes.

You go down the

track with your head completely

1:39:331:39:37

looking forward and your know what's

going on but as ahead, G four picks

1:39:371:39:42

up and you are going at five G

forces so your head comes down and

1:39:421:39:46

is bumping on the ice, so you have

to learn to pick up different shades

1:39:461:39:50

of white. It's a good fun game of

trying to piece everything together

1:39:501:39:54

down the track.

Fun is one word for it, but actually

1:39:541:39:58

having fun with her mates was how it

started for Lizzy on a mattress in a

1:39:581:40:02

school playing field.

Whenever it

snowed we would, like, had gap

1:40:021:40:08

students, we would take their

mattresses. I was doing it from a

1:40:081:40:11

really early age.

On the mattresses?

Yeah, on the mattresses, then a

1:40:111:40:18

mattress got broken and we got

banned. I think the past 18 months

1:40:181:40:22

has been very up and down but I

really wouldn't want it anywhere the

1:40:221:40:25

way, I really wanted to come back

and go into Pyeongchang a lot more

1:40:251:40:30

under my own steam and I think I'm

really looking forward to us all

1:40:301:40:34

kind of trying to do it again.

1:40:341:40:38

Her campaign begins on the BBC, live

coverage at 11:20am.

We will look

1:40:381:40:43

forward to it. Mike, thank you.

Matt

will have the weather for us

1:40:431:40:48

shortly.

1:40:481:40:51

Let's go back to one of our main

stories this morning.

1:40:511:40:54

For 25 years, Barry Bennell

lived a double life.

1:40:541:40:56

Publicly lauded as one of English

football's best talent

1:40:561:40:59

spotters, but in private he carried

out a campaign of sexual abuse

1:40:591:41:02

against young boys.

1:41:021:41:03

He's been convicted of a total

of 43 charges relating

1:41:031:41:06

to assaults carried out

between 1979 and 1990.

1:41:061:41:09

One of his victims was

Steve Walters, who joins us now.

1:41:091:41:15

Thank you very much, Steve, for

talking to us this morning on BBC

1:41:151:41:20

Breakfast. I understand you were at

the court yesterday when the

1:41:201:41:23

verdicts were delivered, can you

tell us how you felt hearing that?

1:41:231:41:26

Initially totally shocked. It took

us a good half an hour for it to

1:41:261:41:33

sink in. After six weeks of going

through hell, taking to the stand,

1:41:331:41:39

telling people that your abuse...

One of the hardest things we've had

1:41:391:41:45

to do in our lives but when the

verdict came through yesterday, it

1:41:451:41:49

sunk in, total relief to finally get

justice.

One can only imagine how

1:41:491:41:54

awful it was having to be on the

stand, as you said, over the past

1:41:541:41:58

six weeks but would you mind telling

our viewers, telling us, your

1:41:581:42:03

experience, your relationship with

this man, Barry Bennell, who had

1:42:031:42:09

abused you when you were a child?

Yes. I come from Plymouth, which is

1:42:091:42:15

obviously a long way from macro

crew, so I had no other option

1:42:151:42:19

really than to stay at his house in

Buxton -- Crewe. The old grooming

1:42:191:42:26

process, lavishing you with gifts,

top of the range sportswear...

1:42:261:42:32

Monkees and

1:42:321:42:37

Monkees and leopards Pumas, dogs,

everything really. Slowly but surely

1:42:371:42:41

he groomed me. The first time he

tried something I managed to stop it

1:42:411:42:51

happening but after two or three

weeks of messing me about with

1:42:511:42:57

threatening to ruin my football

career and various things, the

1:42:571:42:59

inevitable happened.

Who did you

manage to tell, if anyone, what was

1:42:591:43:08

happening to you?

To be honest I

told a few people, I told my dad in

1:43:081:43:13

my early 20s, I had a panic attack

and ended up in hospital and when I

1:43:131:43:18

came out I told him. As far as I'm

aware he didn't do nothing. That was

1:43:181:43:26

a huge hammer blow for me after

doing something so difficult with

1:43:261:43:31

that decision. I'd told me mum and

my ex-wife. I went to a doctor in

1:43:311:43:40

2012 also so I have told quite a few

people.

What we're hearing from you

1:43:401:43:45

and other people who have been

victims of Barry Bennell is once you

1:43:451:43:51

finally spoke, eventually at least

now there's been some conclusion,

1:43:511:43:54

the verdict has been handed down,

we're waiting for his sentencing on

1:43:541:43:58

Monday, what next? What should be

done now? Are you encouraged at all

1:43:581:44:04

by the way bodies are reacting, the

FA, the Football Association is

1:44:041:44:08

reacting to this in the ways of

protecting young children now?

The

1:44:081:44:16

court process has finally found the

truth. Like I just said now, we've

1:44:161:44:21

had justice and the truth has come

out, hopefully now the footballing

1:44:211:44:25

authorities and the football clubs

can just find out the truth. We all

1:44:251:44:30

know what happened, there's that

many of us. People must have known

1:44:301:44:34

about it so let the truth come out.

That's all I want and that's all we

1:44:341:44:40

want, the truth.

Steve, have you

been able to move on with life now?

1:44:401:44:45

You've spoken to family members,

you've spoken to medical staff, you

1:44:451:44:48

have sought help?

Yes. I mentioned

to a few people yesterday, yesterday

1:44:481:44:55

was the first day of my new life.

The burden's been lifted. Obviously

1:44:551:45:00

I've still got a long way to go on a

personal level but I want to move on

1:45:001:45:05

forwards and onwards now and just

look forward in life and become a

1:45:051:45:09

better person.

Steve, your bravery just in telling

1:45:091:45:15

your story and helping this man to

conviction would have helped many

1:45:151:45:19

people I'm sure. Thank you for your

bravery in talking to us and I wish

1:45:191:45:23

you well with the first day, as you

say, of the rest of your life.

Thank

1:45:231:45:28

you very much.

It's worth pointing

out there will be more on the story

1:45:281:45:33

of Barry Bennell and his crimes and

abuse on the Victoria Derbyshire

1:45:331:45:38

programme, a special programme,

starting at 9am on the BBC News

1:45:381:45:41

Channel.

1:45:411:45:43

Matt's out in Oxfordshire this

morning to take a look

1:45:431:45:46

at today's weather.

1:45:461:45:48

Good morning. Blenheim Palace in

Oxfordshire is where we are based

1:45:481:45:54

this morning. The building was home

of the 12th of YouGov Marlborough

1:45:541:45:58

and the birthplace of Winston

Churchill as well. Unesco World

1:45:581:46:02

Heritage site. And it's also about

the lovely parkland and gardens,

1:46:021:46:08

forestry and rivers behind me, which

extend across a large area. A

1:46:081:46:13

beautiful place to visit on the edge

of The Cotswolds and it is shaping

1:46:131:46:18

up

1:46:181:46:18

of The Cotswolds and it is shaping

up to be a lovely day. Frost on the

1:46:181:46:21

ground behind me. It is a frosty

start for many. A bit of a frosty

1:46:211:46:26

Friday. But if you have any plans

for our doors, today will be a

1:46:261:46:30

cracking day. Mostly fine, but a few

wintry showers in the north of

1:46:301:46:36

Scotland. Maybe a couple into the

west of Northern Ireland as well.

1:46:361:46:41

Both staying dry. Cloud increasing

from the west through the day and

1:46:411:46:45

across parts of south-west England,

Wales, maybe north-west England,

1:46:451:46:50

sunshine turning hazy in the

afternoon. The cloud could be thick

1:46:501:46:54

enough or rain at times in parts of

western Scotland. We continue to see

1:46:541:46:58

showers come and go. A mixture of

rain, sleet and snow and maybe

1:46:581:47:02

thunder, but not as many as

yesterday. Wheezy in the north of

1:47:021:47:09

Scotland. That will keep

temperatures back a touch. But for

1:47:091:47:14

many after a frosty start

temperatures will be a bit above

1:47:141:47:17

where they should be at this time of

year, 11- 12 in southern parts of

1:47:171:47:22

Scotland. Overnight rain, sleet and

hill snow with hail mixed in and

1:47:221:47:27

gusty winds heading to northern

England and north and west Wales.

1:47:271:47:31

Either side of it some clear skies.

Icy weather into parts of western

1:47:311:47:34

Scotland and Northern Ireland to

start tomorrow morning. Further

1:47:341:47:39

south and east, frosty again on the

weekend, like morning sunshine.

1:47:391:47:43

Tomorrow has more cloud around. Rain

at times. Hill snow in northern

1:47:431:47:47

parts of Scotland. That edges

southwards and it will fizzle out

1:47:471:47:52

and break out. Sunny spells

developing elsewhere. Just a few

1:47:521:47:59

showers in northern Scotland. For

many it's still a fine day. Another

1:47:591:48:02

reasonably mild one. Through

Saturday night and into Sunday we

1:48:021:48:07

see sky is clear for a time in many

areas. There could be a touch of

1:48:071:48:11

frost in the east. Most will be

frost free into Sunday. The best of

1:48:111:48:16

any breaks in a cloud on Sunday

likely to be further east, but in

1:48:161:48:20

western areas in particular we will

see it damp, drizzly and quite

1:48:201:48:24

murky, but it will be another mile

day. Temperatures could reach double

1:48:241:48:28

figures in many parts. This weekend

if you have any plans, temperatures

1:48:281:48:33

up on what we saw over the last few

days. The best of the weather

1:48:331:48:37

probably on Saturday for many. Even

on Sunday many eastern areas could

1:48:371:48:43

just about get away with a largely

dry day. That's how the forecast is

1:48:431:48:48

looking. Back to you.

1:48:481:48:58

looking. Back to you. It really does

look stunning. Turn around and enjoy

1:48:591:49:01

it!

1:49:011:49:01

look stunning. Turn around and enjoy

it!

1:49:011:49:03

The sun is coming up as well.

They'll put that on the

1:49:031:49:07

merchandising. Man enjoying view.

Thank you very much.

1:49:071:49:14

You may have noticed in the papers

this week that apparently there are

1:49:141:49:18

more young people and ever who are

on the property ladder. Yet, Ben, we

1:49:181:49:25

are also reporting that there are

fewer people buying a house for the

1:49:251:49:29

first time. Are you going to bust

some of these numbers?

1:49:291:49:33

They will do my best. The ones only

in the week, the figures, were

1:49:331:49:38

looking at returns for first-time

buyers and that was based on during

1:49:381:49:44

the height of the financial crisis.

Slowly those buyers are coming back.

1:49:441:49:48

This morning we are looking at

figures from the Institute of Fiscal

1:49:481:49:52

Studies. They look at over the past

20 years and say how difficult is it

1:49:521:49:57

now to buy a house if you are a

young person, versus how hard it was

1:49:571:50:01

then? There are two big differences.

One is cost. Can you people afford

1:50:011:50:06

to get a mortgage and the deposit

together, but the other is whether

1:50:061:50:09

there are enough houses to get a

full -- available. This morning we

1:50:091:50:14

are talking about how difficult it

is for young people to get on the

1:50:141:50:18

property ladder and the figures

don't suggest it will be easy. It

1:50:181:50:21

chewed for fiscal studies says home

ownership or young people has

1:50:211:50:24

collapsed over the last few decades.

-- the Institute for Fiscal Studies.

1:50:241:50:31

In the mid- 90s 50% of people on a

middle income could own air on home.

1:50:311:50:36

Recent figures suggest... INAUDIBLE.

Rising prices are an issue, but

1:50:361:50:45

there's also a big shortage of being

built. Local Government Association

1:50:451:50:52

says over 400,000 new homes were

given planning permission but

1:50:521:50:54

they've not yet been built.

It's

completely out of reach at the

1:50:541:51:00

moment. There's not a chance I can

get a deposit. It is such a cost.

1:51:001:51:06

With utility bills and the cost of

trains going to London, it's just an

1:51:061:51:10

achievable. Friends are around the

same age and none of us are on the

1:51:101:51:16

property ladder yet. My mum always

talks about how she got on the

1:51:161:51:19

property ladder by 25, 20 six. I've

hit 30 and there's not a chance I

1:51:191:51:24

will get there soon. You constantly

hear those stories of how little

1:51:241:51:28

they have to pay. I am looking at

further. I have lived in Brighton

1:51:281:51:32

for ten years, but there's not a

chance I would be able to buy here.

1:51:321:51:38

I've got a housing expert with beef.

Good morning. When you hear stories

1:51:381:51:42

like that it is pretty typical.

Parents say, it was cheaper on my

1:51:421:51:47

day. We will talk more about that in

the second. A lot of people have got

1:51:471:51:53

in touch saying it even wasn't that

easy 20 or 30 years ago. Why is it

1:51:531:51:57

so difficult for young people to get

on the ladder?

House prices have

1:51:571:52:01

risen seven times faster than wages,

which means properties are

1:52:011:52:05

unaffordable. With the average house

price of £227,000 in the UK and the

1:52:051:52:11

average median income of people

between 25 and 34 being anywhere

1:52:111:52:17

between 20 and £30,000, four times

salary mortgage lending is simply

1:52:171:52:24

insufficient. They can't afford to

get on the ladder.

But prices have

1:52:241:52:29

gone up so quickly, as you say. Is

it that we are not building enough?

1:52:291:52:35

It's a combination of a lot of

things, but supply and property

1:52:351:52:39

stock is always what is considered.

We need to be building 300,000 homes

1:52:391:52:44

the year to meet demand and we are

simply not doing that. Planning

1:52:441:52:47

permission has been accepted for

423,000 new homes, but has

1:52:471:52:54

construction started? No, they say

developers are taking up to three

1:52:541:52:59

years to build the homes. They are

always land grabbing and waiting for

1:52:591:53:04

property prices to go up and then

build.

That can't happen if we want

1:53:041:53:08

to meet demand. Mortgages are pretty

cheap right now. We've seen record

1:53:081:53:12

low interest rate since the

financial crisis. To get a mortgage

1:53:121:53:16

and repay it is cheap. The problem

is you need a big mortgage to a --

1:53:161:53:23

afford the house you want.

Interest

rates are so low, but if you can

1:53:231:53:27

only borrow four times your salary

you can only afford half your home

1:53:271:53:31

for the whole of the UK. What we get

to London you can't even afford a

1:53:311:53:35

fifth of your home. You have the get

their equity that people don't have.

1:53:351:53:40

The other problem is we have an

increasing generation who are

1:53:401:53:44

renting will stop so many renters

and the sector. 21% of households

1:53:441:53:47

rent and that set the increase to

24% in the next five years. People

1:53:471:53:53

are pushing all of their money into

rent. In the north, we are looking

1:53:531:53:58

at around 25% of people putting

their money into rent. In London,

1:53:581:54:02

50%. All of their money is going

into the rental market and not

1:54:021:54:07

eating brought out for saving to be

able to save up for that deposit.

It

1:54:071:54:11

is fascinating. I just want to talk

about a couple of comments. Colin

1:54:111:54:18

says it has never been easy to get

on the housing that. Interest rates

1:54:181:54:22

are 50% or 60% in the 90s. Paul says

you have to live in an undesirable

1:54:221:54:29

area at first. He says his first

flat in the 70s cost £9,000 but he

1:54:291:54:34

paid 15% interest rate. It is all

about context.

1:54:341:54:38

Thanks very much. Ben is the maths

bring this morning!

1:54:381:54:43

Lots of statistics.

Is that maths? Of course! We are

1:54:431:54:50

launching our special maths series

today. Jane has been to school. She

1:54:501:54:55

is nervous about maths and she went

to a school in derby with a love the

1:54:551:55:00

subject.

They do love the subject.

Good morning from wind Primary

1:55:001:55:04

School. Good morning! -- Winham.

Good morning!

These students are

1:55:041:55:16

giving me a maths lesson. 49% of

people in this country have the

1:55:161:55:23

maths skills of primary school

children. Does that apply to you,

1:55:231:55:27

Steve, the cameraman? Right, do a

quick maths.

12 times nine.

--

36. Clearly you know what you are

1:55:361:55:48

doing. They do the Shanghai method

here. Shanghai is the top of the

1:55:481:55:52

global rankings when it comes to

maths. Our country and England and

1:55:521:55:56

Ireland are in the bottom four. It

is all about learning that is

1:55:561:56:00

visually.

How does this work? So how

many parts make a whole? So seven

1:56:001:56:04

parts. And how many parts have we

got?

Two equal parts.

So how could

1:56:041:56:12

we write that as a fraction?

Two

separate.

It's about having a deeper

1:56:121:56:19

understanding. How does it work?

We

are one of the 35 schools that

1:56:191:56:29

provides support the early children

and later as well. The problem with

1:56:291:56:35

Max has been that we learn this

procedure and the tricks of the

1:56:351:56:39

trade and actually we want children

to understand the structure of the

1:56:391:56:43

maths that is being taught.

And is

it working?

It is. I think the

1:56:431:56:48

confidence shows in the classroom.

Quickly, let's chat to someone from

1:56:481:56:55

the -- National New Morrissey. How

do we fix this problem?

All of this

1:56:551:57:00

stuff is brilliant, the biggest

issue is out there amongst parents

1:57:001:57:04

and other adults. Kids are getting

it right. There are two things

1:57:041:57:09

adults can do. As a parent, never

say you can't do maths. Secondly, do

1:57:091:57:14

something about it. We have

something called the national new

1:57:141:57:19

Morrissey challenge. You can check

out everyday maths skills. --

1:57:191:57:22

numeracy.

We will also talk to a

parent over here. She used to say

1:57:221:57:30

she couldn't do it. But we are going

to do better now. Chat to you later.

1:57:301:57:34

Say goodbye, kids!

See you later, Jane. Perhaps Jane

1:57:341:57:42

has got in the mood for trying some

maths.

1:57:421:57:45

Absolutely. We are all positive

about maths.

1:57:451:57:49

If you would like to Chye a GCSE

maths question, you can go to the

1:57:491:57:55

BBC website, click on the Breakfast

logo and you

1:57:552:01:24

Hello, this is Breakfast, with

Charlie Stayt and Naga Munchetty.

2:01:242:01:27

The suspect in America's latest high

school shooting appears in court

2:01:272:01:30

charged with 17 counts of murder.

2:01:302:01:32

19 year old Nikolas Cruz is accused

of carrying out the killing spree

2:01:322:01:35

at a campus in Florida.

2:01:352:01:38

Police say that just

moments after his attack,

2:01:382:01:43

the teenager ate at a McDonalds

and Subway,

2:01:432:01:44

before being arrested.

2:01:442:01:47

As vigils are held for the victims

one teacher tells us

2:01:472:01:49

of her harrowing ordeal.

2:01:492:01:54

The student came to my door

and he shot out the whole glass

2:01:542:01:58

panel inside the door,

hitting students while he did that.

2:01:582:02:05

Good morning.

2:02:152:02:17

It's Friday 16th February.

2:02:172:02:19

Also this morning...

The aid worker at the centre

2:02:192:02:22

of the Oxfam scandal speaks publicly

for the first time as he denies

2:02:222:02:29

using prostitutes in Haiti.

And in sport, Dom's done it.

2:02:292:02:35

It's a first medal for Britain

at the Winter Olympics.

2:02:352:02:43

Dom Parsons takes bronze in the

men's skeleton, he'll be joining us

2:02:452:02:49

just after 8:30am.

2:02:492:02:51

The UK's bus network has shrunk

to its smallest since the 1980s

2:02:512:02:53

blamed on funding cuts

and rising car use.

2:02:532:02:55

But what about people who rely

on buses to get around?

2:02:552:02:58

I'll look at what's being done

to keep them running.

2:02:582:03:01

And breakfast goes back to school.

Though be looking at the UK's mounts

2:03:012:03:07

problems and some of our best brains

will be put through their mouths

2:03:072:03:12

paces.

2:03:122:03:16

Are we seeing the first

signs of Spring?

2:03:162:03:18

Matt has the weather.

2:03:182:03:24

A lovely winter stay for many.

Temperatures set to rise. More in a

2:03:242:03:29

few minutes.

2:03:292:03:30

Good morning.

2:03:302:03:31

First, our main story.

2:03:312:03:32

The 19 year old accused of carrying

out a school shooting in Florida,

2:03:322:03:35

which left 17 people dead,

has appeared in court charged

2:03:352:03:37

with premeditated murder.

2:03:372:03:38

Nikolas Cruz went on a killing

spree in the town of

2:03:382:03:41

Parkland on Wednesday.

2:03:412:03:42

The FBI is now investigating how it

handled a warning that the teenager

2:03:422:03:45

reportedly posted on YouTube

claiming he would be

2:03:452:03:48

a "professional school shooter".

2:03:482:03:51

Vigils were held late into the night

in tribute to the victims,

2:03:512:03:54

as Nada Tawfiq reports.

2:03:542:03:57

They came to mourn the lives lost

and the lives scarred

2:03:572:03:59

by this senseless attack.

2:03:592:04:03

Neighbours, friends and the students

of Stoneman Douglas High comforted

2:04:032:04:05

one another as best they could.

2:04:052:04:10

Jett Weetsma was among the students

who ran in panic once the first

2:04:102:04:13

shots were fired.

2:04:132:04:15

He doesn't know if he can handle

returning to the halls

2:04:152:04:17

where his classmates'

lives were cut short.

2:04:172:04:20

I don't know if I'll be able

to cope with just walking

2:04:202:04:24

through the bottom floor

of the freshman building,

2:04:242:04:26

knowing that everything

has been cleaned up...

2:04:262:04:31

Like, everything -

you can almost imagine blood

2:04:312:04:34

on the walls, bodies on the floor.

2:04:342:04:38

No one is going to be able to walk

through that building.

2:04:382:04:41

No one.

2:04:412:04:42

All 17 victims have

now been identified.

2:04:422:04:45

Among them talented students,

star athletes and Aaron Feis,

2:04:452:04:49

a beloved football coach

and security guard.

2:04:492:04:52

He has been called a hero

for shielding children

2:04:522:04:54

from the gunman's bullets.

2:04:542:05:01

Our unit Jacob Cruise?

Yes.

2:05:012:05:12

Nikolas Cruz appeared in court

briefly on 17 charges

2:05:122:05:14

of premeditated murder.

2:05:142:05:15

His lawyer said he was sad

and remorseful and described him

2:05:152:05:17

as a broken human being.

2:05:172:05:19

The sheriff's office said

he confessed to opening fire

2:05:192:05:21

on his former school.

2:05:212:05:22

He told authorities he bought

a drink at Subway and stopped

2:05:222:05:24

at McDonald's after the rampage.

2:05:242:05:26

On social media, Cruz often posed

with guns and in one post he wrote

2:05:262:05:29

he would be a professional

school shooter.

2:05:292:05:31

Those who knew him were

troubled by his behaviour.

2:05:312:05:35

He's someone who used racial slurs,

who was just awful to other people

2:05:352:05:41

and I'm sure he was bullied himself

by some but he was the type

2:05:412:05:44

of person where people

were scared to

2:05:442:05:46

bully him because they knew

something could happen.

2:05:462:05:48

They just didn't think

this would happen.

2:05:482:05:51

These terrifying scenes of students

completely helpless and trembling

2:05:512:05:54

with fear have shaken the nation

and they have reignited

2:05:542:05:57

the debate on gun control.

2:05:572:06:01

People here are in a state of shock,

that someone from their own

2:06:012:06:04

community could be

capable of such killing,

2:06:042:06:07

and that their city now joins

the long list of America's

2:06:072:06:10

school shooting tragedies.

2:06:102:06:13

Nada Tawfiq, BBC News,

Parkland, Florida.

2:06:132:06:16

The head of Oxfam International says

the charity will look into

2:06:242:06:28

allegations of sexual abuse. Winnie

the

2:06:282:06:38

the Nina says steps would be made.

First of all. Roland Van

2:06:402:06:46

Hauwermeiren has spoken, allegations

building up against him and we are

2:06:462:06:51

finding out more about the

allegations. He has been accused of

2:06:512:07:00

using prostitutes in Chad in 2006,

he was director of operations and in

2:07:002:07:05

Liberia, he was director of a

different charity, 2004 work spoke

2:07:052:07:11

to a radio station and said he had

not paid for any prostitutes on any

2:07:112:07:17

single deployment for Oxfam, said he

was sacked for a different reason,

2:07:172:07:21

the future vision for Oxfam but he

did feel ashamed, he said there were

2:07:212:07:24

things he did that were not right,

in future he realised looking back

2:07:242:07:28

he would not be able to properly

account for them, he put himself

2:07:282:07:33

open and exposed himself to these

allegations. It is a very different

2:07:332:07:36

account to what we have in hearing,

the use of prostitutes, he said it

2:07:362:07:41

was a woman in Haiti he fell in love

of, had a sexual relationship with

2:07:412:07:45

and this is in explaining his

account of what went on in Haiti.

2:07:452:07:51

TRANSLATION: It was just as decent

as if I were to meet a woman in the

2:07:512:07:55

city and I have a girlfriend here,

we fell in love, nothing wrong with

2:07:552:07:59

that. Of course I admitted I should

have known better at the time,

2:07:592:08:02

knowing gossip can spread and this

can lead to suspicion, it could be

2:08:022:08:07

interpreted wrongly.

There are also

allegations going back to when he

2:08:072:08:14

worked in Liberia with the British

charity Merlin, he said specific

2:08:142:08:18

allegations were wrote about quote

by either someone on a moral crusade

2:08:182:08:23

on someone who had vengeance out to

get him, he was aware there was one

2:08:232:08:29

occasion he was flirting with women

who he later found out were

2:08:292:08:34

prostitutes, that again exposed him

to allegations and suspicions that

2:08:342:08:38

were not correct. This is his

account again of what happened in

2:08:382:08:41

Liberia.

TRANSLATION: In Liberia

Isil into a trap, I can admit it was

2:08:412:08:48

stupid to be part of a party to be

in a club for growth are dancing

2:08:482:08:55

provocatively. I joined in the

dancing, turned out there were

2:08:552:08:58

prostitutes, I danced with them

again at a party, I should be

2:08:582:09:02

sanctioned for that I do admit, I

should have reacted better, that I

2:09:022:09:05

do regret. The Chief Executive

director of Oxfam saying they are

2:09:052:09:11

looking to perform huge reforms

within Oxfam including a commission

2:09:112:09:17

to investigate what happened in the

past and doubling the budget for the

2:09:172:09:22

safeguarding team, and having a

referee system to stop people being

2:09:222:09:25

referred if this happens again in

future. Thank you.

2:09:252:09:29

The Football Association

is to review thousands of files

2:09:292:09:31

to find out how much was known

about the abuse carried out

2:09:312:09:34

by former youth coach Barry Bennell,

as part of its internal review.

2:09:342:09:37

Yesterday he was found guilty

of another seven counts of sexually

2:09:372:09:40

abusing boys meaning he's now been

convicted of a total of 43 offences

2:09:402:09:43

between 1979 and 1990.

2:09:432:09:48

Earlier we spoke to one

of his victims, David Lean,

2:09:482:09:50

who gave us his reaction

to the verdict.

2:09:502:09:52

It's great to obviously

finally see justice.

2:09:522:09:57

I don't really feel I got justice

in 2015, he just got a two-year

2:09:572:10:01

sentence, served 12 months.

2:10:012:10:02

I always knew there was going to be

many more, told everybody

2:10:022:10:05

there was many more,

and finally it's been

2:10:052:10:07

shown there's been many more.

2:10:072:10:14

Britain's bus network has

shrunk to levels last

2:10:172:10:19

seen in the late 1980s,

that's according

2:10:192:10:21

to a BBC investigation.

2:10:212:10:22

Rising car use and cuts to public

funding are being blamed for a loss

2:10:222:10:25

of 134 million miles of coverage

over the past decade alone.

2:10:252:10:28

"The Campaign For Better

Transport" says the scale

2:10:282:10:30

of the miles lost is a sign that

buses are on course to be cut

2:10:302:10:34

to the same extent railways

were in the 1960s.

2:10:342:10:40

It's ten minutes past eight. We have

a bronze medal. Catherine Downes is

2:10:492:10:54

in Pyeongchang and is following the

events. What is how then?

We are

2:10:542:11:00

celebrating Great Britain first

bronze medal of the games, the first

2:11:002:11:06

medal for Team GB, in action in the

Sliding Centre. I hopes to come for

2:11:062:11:13

the women later with Lizzy Yarnold

and Laura Deas going on later

2:11:132:11:16

tonight. Dom Parsons, for Great

Britain, he secured bronze in the

2:11:162:11:24

men's skeleton, by the tiniest of

margins. It's always a tiny margins

2:11:242:11:29

when it comes to the skeleton, I can

hear shouting below me, Dom Parsons

2:11:292:11:33

is on his way, that's him getting

ready to do his interview but let me

2:11:332:11:38

talk you through how he did it. A

sleepless night for him, in third

2:11:382:11:44

position after the third run, his

first run today. He managed to hold

2:11:442:11:48

onto the bronze medal position, but

then one of the Olympic Athletes

2:11:482:11:53

from Russia jumped above him into

silver, agonising wait for Dom

2:11:532:11:59

Parsons, two left to go, clean run

for him in the final run down the

2:11:592:12:06

slope, not maybe the fastest starts

at he would have wanted, he had to

2:12:062:12:10

wait in the bronze medal position

with two athletes left to go, one of

2:12:102:12:15

them two time Olympic silver

medallist from Latvia, who you would

2:12:152:12:19

expect to perform brilliantly. And

he did not, and uncharacteristic

2:12:192:12:27

mistake

2:12:272:12:32

mistake from Martins Dukurs meant

that it was a bronze medal for Great

2:12:342:12:40

Britain, the first in many decades.

Dom Parsons!

2:12:402:12:48

CHEERING

Catherine, it looks so good over

2:12:482:12:54

there, thank you so much. We have

got one! And we are going to take a

2:12:542:13:01

moment to go back to the commentary.

You know the commentators get very

2:13:012:13:05

excited. This is as the bronze medal

came in.

2:13:052:13:16

Do you know how bad is? There is a

technical, there is audio on two

2:13:212:13:27

legs, we only heard the audio on one

of them.

2:13:272:13:30

legs, we only heard the audio on one

of them. That was the sound of the

2:13:302:13:32

member that the commentary. We will

come back to that later. And here

2:13:322:13:35

the full version. All the weather

with Matt coming up and Michael

2:13:352:13:39

Bloomberg does as well. The time is

30 minutes past eight.

2:13:392:13:46

Let's return now to our top story

and the murder of 17 people

2:13:462:13:49

in the deadliest US school

shooting since 2012.

2:13:492:13:51

Teachers and pupils ran

for cover as 19 year

2:13:512:13:53

old Nikolas Cruz began his attack.

2:13:532:13:58

The victims have even remembered at

vigils, here are some of the

2:13:582:14:04

pictures of those who died,

teenagers of all ages.

2:14:042:14:16

Earlier we spoke to one of the

teachers, who was involved in the

2:14:192:14:23

shooting incident.

2:14:232:14:24

I was actually teaching a history

of the Holocaust class.

2:14:242:14:26

I had mostly seniors in that class.

2:14:262:14:28

I was in front of

a big Recordex board.

2:14:282:14:30

We were finishing a big lesson

on the 1936 Olympics,

2:14:302:14:32

actually, in Berlin,

when we just heard extremely

2:14:322:14:34

loud pop, pop, pop.

2:14:342:14:38

The kids instantaneously

dove for the floor.

2:14:382:14:41

They didn't even think about it,

they didn't question it.

2:14:412:14:44

It was unmistakable,

what's that sound was.

2:14:442:14:45

The kids all just

tried to take cover,

2:14:472:14:50

in the perimeter of the classroom.

2:14:502:14:53

So you realised

something was happening.

2:14:532:14:56

Was it immediately apparent

that it was a shooter,

2:14:562:14:59

and when they came very close

to where you were, tell me

2:14:592:15:02

what happened next?

2:15:022:15:04

Well, there was a lot of students,

so we just tried to go

2:15:042:15:09

behind my desk, behind file

cabinets, behind the laptop

2:15:092:15:15

cart, there is a lot

of stuff in the classroom.

2:15:152:15:17

So they tried to find cover.

2:15:172:15:18

It was instantaneous.

2:15:182:15:23

Within seconds, the shooter came

to my door and he shot out the whole

2:15:232:15:26

glass panel inside the door.

2:15:262:15:30

Hitting students, while he did that.

2:15:302:15:34

And this is the point,

this is so awful for you, I know,

2:15:342:15:39

you lost some of the students that

were in your class at that time?

2:15:392:15:42

Yes.

2:15:422:15:45

We didn't know it at the time,

but he hit several students

2:15:452:15:49

and they were injured,

and I didn't realise at that moment.

2:15:492:15:55

Two female, and a male student, who

are seniors and ready to go to

2:15:552:15:59

college soon, they were killed.

OK,

I am really seeking not to distress

2:15:592:16:05

you any further and I know it is

very difficult for you. We have now

2:16:052:16:09

seen some of the names and ages of

those students, they will be

2:16:092:16:15

students you know well, 14, 15, 16,

17 years old. You have had a little

2:16:152:16:24

time to try to understand what

happened what do you make of it now?

2:16:242:16:31

I make no sense of this will stop it

was completely random, completely

2:16:312:16:37

senseless. This teenager should not

have had an assault rifle at all. I

2:16:372:16:40

don't think we were targeted. I

didn't know the shooter, I have been

2:16:402:16:45

teaching at that school for 17

years, it is a large suburban high

2:16:452:16:49

school. I did not know him, I just

think that, for whatever vendetta he

2:16:492:16:56

had, he just randomly was seeking

out several classrooms, and ours was

2:16:562:17:00

unfortunately one of them.

From what

we understand, explain this for us,

2:17:002:17:06

you were explaining how your

students reacted, that they did

2:17:062:17:09

exactly the right thing at the time,

notwithstanding the terrible loss

2:17:092:17:13

that you have suffered within your

classroom. They did entirely the

2:17:132:17:17

right thing. It was something you

had rehearsed for? You had trained

2:17:172:17:20

your students for?

Yes, sir. We had

been practising, because of

2:17:202:17:27

everything we have seen on the news.

We were practising what would happen

2:17:272:17:30

in a

2:17:302:17:40

in a Code Black, Code Red. They knew

to take cover, nobody wondered if it

2:17:402:17:47

was a drill, nobody looked around, I

was very proud of them, they ran to

2:17:472:17:51

find anything to cover themselves,

to hide behind something. They were

2:17:512:17:55

all crowded behind my desk, trying

to call 911.

A couple of last

2:17:552:18:01

thoughts, are you going to be going

back to the school itself? I know

2:18:012:18:04

there have been vigils held. I don't

know if you have been at those?

2:18:042:18:09

These must be agonising times?

Yes,

very. I went yesterday in the

2:18:092:18:15

afternoon, I had been there for

several hours. The students found it

2:18:152:18:19

quite therapeutic. We were able to

reunite. There were a lot of rumours

2:18:192:18:23

going around, rumours that I had

been injured or killed, so just by

2:18:232:18:27

seeing each other and being with

each other, I have no idea when

2:18:272:18:30

school will be ready to be in

session.

Given that you were in the

2:18:302:18:35

classroom when this occurred, the

students you know so well, how do

2:18:352:18:39

you think you will go about helping

them deal with something that no

2:18:392:18:44

young person, indeed no teacher,

nobody should have to go through?

2:18:442:18:50

No, nobody should ever, I didn't

think I would have to do this. I

2:18:502:18:53

just think if I am there for them, I

love my students dearly. I just feel

2:18:532:18:58

like if we listen and we talk about

this, it really does help to talk

2:18:582:19:05

and listen to what they have to say,

just let them know that we love

2:19:052:19:09

them.

Ivy Seamus, you heard her

account, she was teaching a class

2:19:092:19:22

when the shooter arrived. Sadly, two

pupils of hers were killed in the

2:19:222:19:27

attack. She kindly spoke to us to

take us through her thoughts as

2:19:272:19:31

people tried to come to terms.

2:19:312:19:34

This is the view over Blenheim

Palace. It is frosty on the ground,

2:19:362:19:43

but Matt promises there might be

signs of spring on the way.

Yes,

2:19:432:19:46

what a lovely view. We are in the

grounds Blenheim Palace in

2:19:462:19:52

Oxfordshire, one of the biggest

stately homes in the UK. It is run

2:19:522:19:55

by the 12th Duke, birthplace to

Winston Churchill. Look at the

2:19:552:20:00

surroundings behind me. That is in

amongst the 2000 acres of grounds

2:20:002:20:06

and forestry they have here.

Beautiful start to the day. But a

2:20:062:20:11

thick frost on the ground.

2:20:112:20:15

A cold start across many parts of

the UK, but it is shaping up to be a

2:20:152:20:19

lovely Friday. Let us look at the

forecast. Most places will be fine,

2:20:192:20:24

but there are a few showers to the

north-west of the UK in particular.

2:20:242:20:29

Nowhere near as many as we have had.

Most will get away largely dry. This

2:20:292:20:35

morning, plenty of sunshine around.

The frost will be melting, the sun

2:20:352:20:39

is up. Give it a few more hours.

More cloud drifting from the West

2:20:392:20:44

during the day, turning the sunshine

hazy. Most places staying dry. As we

2:20:442:20:49

drift across the western part of the

UK and into the afternoon, the cloud

2:20:492:20:53

turns the sunshine hazy in the West.

Could produce the odd spot of rain

2:20:532:20:57

and hill snow in Northern Ireland,

more particularly across western

2:20:572:21:00

parts of Scotland, but nowhere near

as much as you have seen over the

2:21:002:21:04

past few days. Parisian northern

Scotland with wind close to gale

2:21:042:21:08

force. Lighter than the past few

days for many. Sunshine overhead,

2:21:082:21:13

and it will be a pleasant afternoon,

potentially substance of spring. A

2:21:132:21:19

few changes overnight in Scotland

and Northern Ireland, a fairly brief

2:21:192:21:22

spell of rain and hill snow across

northern England and parts of Wales.

2:21:222:21:28

Either side of that we will see

clear skies around. There will be a

2:21:282:21:31

chance of frost towards the and

north west of the country. The

2:21:312:21:36

north-west, icy conditions into

Saturday morning. Saturday, sunny

2:21:362:21:39

spells across many areas but a lot

more cloud generally. Northern

2:21:392:21:42

England, Wales, parts of the

Midlands, it might start of grey

2:21:422:21:45

with outbreaks of rain or drizzle.

Hill snow as well. That will work

2:21:452:21:49

southwards and start to decay. Most

places staying dry, sunny spells

2:21:492:21:56

into the afternoon with temperatures

into double figures across the South

2:21:562:21:58

and above where they have been this

week in the north. Through Saturday

2:21:582:22:02

night and into Sunday, cloud will

gradually increase across the

2:22:022:22:06

country. That will stop it being too

frosty into Sunday. Not as cold on

2:22:062:22:10

Sunday. It will be cloudy, by and

large, and quite grey at times in

2:22:102:22:14

the West, turning murky over the

hills with outbreaks of rain or

2:22:142:22:18

drizzle around. How quickly it moves

eastwards, some uncertainty. I am

2:22:182:22:24

optimistic that many areas will stay

dry through the day and temperatures

2:22:242:22:26

across the board above where they

have been and above where they

2:22:262:22:29

should be for the time of year. If

you do get any sunshine this

2:22:292:22:32

weekend, with mild weather

dominating, a few hints of spring.

2:22:322:22:35

Saturday is the brighter of the two

days. Next week, it looks like we

2:22:352:22:39

could see things turning colder once

again. That is how it is looking,

2:22:392:22:43

back to you.

2:22:432:22:48

It looks gorgeous, forget worrying

about spring, it is Chinese New

2:22:482:22:52

Year, the year of the dog. I am

thinking of the kind of party we

2:22:522:22:57

could have. I have a quiz for you.

Are you up for it? At this party,

2:22:572:23:02

there are dogs, roosters and

monkeys. It sounds like a great

2:23:022:23:08

party!

I really want to go to this

party, fantastic.

There are twice as

2:23:082:23:12

many dogs as roosters, twice as many

roosters as there are monkeys. OK?

2:23:122:23:22

We are writing all of this down. So,

your challenge this morning, all of

2:23:222:23:27

the dogs have four fleet, the

monkeys and roosters, they have two

2:23:272:23:30

each. -- feet. 88 animal feet at the

party. How many dogs, roosters and

2:23:302:23:41

monkeys? Will you have the answer in

30 minutes when we next week to you?

2:23:412:23:47

Yes, I will.

Matt is always up for a

challenge.

I thought you wanted me

2:23:492:23:54

to do it on the spot!

I am not that

mean. You can see that on the BBC

2:23:542:24:00

website and the home page, and on

our social media.

2:24:002:24:05

Thefts and robberies by people

riding mopeds on London's main

2:24:052:24:08

shopping streets have increased

six-fold over the last two years.

2:24:082:24:11

New data from the Metropolitan

Police shows there were almost 300

2:24:112:24:14

incidents on Oxford Street

in one year.

2:24:142:24:15

Let's take a look at

what's been happening.

2:24:152:24:18

This is the kind of attack that

police are trying to stop,

2:24:202:24:23

mopeds gangs are targeting people's

phones, wallets and bags.

2:24:232:24:28

They threaten and steal,

and some of them go to extreme

2:24:282:24:31

lengths to get what they want.

2:24:312:24:34

New police data shows that

Oxford Street was the place

2:24:342:24:37

where most offences took place last

year, with 291, compared

2:24:372:24:39

to 34 the year before.

2:24:392:24:43

And just 13 in 2014-15.

2:24:432:24:48

But the Met Police say that

intensive operations have led

2:24:482:24:50

to a decrease in moped crime

since October last year.

2:24:502:24:57

Criminologist James

Treadwell joins us now.

2:24:572:25:03

Thank you for talking to us. We are

saying that we are seeing a rise in

2:25:032:25:07

crimes, at least in city centres.

Does that reflect nationally?

Not so

2:25:072:25:12

much nationally. The moped crime

rise has been a very London-based

2:25:122:25:17

problem, around particular streets

in London, the manifestations of

2:25:172:25:21

moped and bike related crime

elsewhere are slightly different. In

2:25:212:25:24

the West Midlands and Manchester you

get a big ride outs.

Ride out?

Large

2:25:242:25:29

groups of motorcyclists, young

bikers joining together to take over

2:25:292:25:38

streets and engage in anti-social

behaviour. This is very much theft

2:25:382:25:43

related, targeting individuals,

taking property. That is very

2:25:432:25:47

London-based.

Even though it is

London-based, and we don't want to

2:25:472:25:51

be to London centric, what people

are picking up on is the start of

2:25:512:25:53

this trend that is easily done in

cities?

Absolutely. Nowadays, in the

2:25:532:26:03

mid-2000s we saw the rise of mobile

phone theft because mobile phones

2:26:032:26:07

have a resale value. With a range of

industry mechanisms, that theft

2:26:072:26:13

declined. It is on the rise again

now, partly because handsets are

2:26:132:26:18

going for £50 or £200 stolen, sold

for parts. A lot of the bike crimes

2:26:182:26:23

of thefts of mobile phones. That is

part of it. Also, a generation of

2:26:232:26:28

young men who grew up with bicycles

are now moving to steal and use

2:26:282:26:34

stolen mopeds in crime in some city

centres, particularly London.

You

2:26:342:26:39

talked about the opportunistic

element, the way people leave their

2:26:392:26:43

lives. What people do, when they are

walking down the street, they do

2:26:432:26:46

have their phones, their computers,

sitting in a cafe, they will have a

2:26:462:26:49

£900 computer laptop in front of

them. That is the reality. That is

2:26:492:26:55

not going to change?

Absolutely. One

of the things we can do to combat

2:26:552:27:00

this is have a better awareness, in

some ways, of how we're going to be

2:27:002:27:07

targeted.

Hold on, why should

people... You can't your life

2:27:072:27:10

assuming that some bad person is

going to grab your stuff, because it

2:27:102:27:15

doesn't belong to them. Why

shouldn't people think, why am I not

2:27:152:27:18

protected better?

I think there are

questions about policing,

2:27:182:27:24

particularly with the rise in

austerity policing. You have seen

2:27:242:27:27

the withdrawal of police numbers,

which I think does have some impact

2:27:272:27:31

on this. At the same time, I think

it is also sensible crime

2:27:312:27:34

prevention. When you are carrying a

mobile phone, be aware of where you

2:27:342:27:41

are a little bit. That is not to

blame victims, but it is a very

2:27:412:27:43

opportunistic crime. If you are

coming out of a tube station,

2:27:432:27:47

looking at your mobile phone, you

might not be alerted to the fact

2:27:472:27:50

that two guys on a moped are

watching you. One way that we can

2:27:502:27:53

prevent this is for citizens to be a

bit aware of our circumstances.

That

2:27:532:27:59

is really interesting. Thank you

very much for your time. Now it is

2:27:592:28:04

time to get the news where you are

this morning.

2:28:042:31:26

Bye for now.

this morning.

2:31:262:31:33

Hello this is Breakfast, with

Charlie Stayt and Naga Munchetty.

2:31:332:31:39

The FBI is investigating how it

handled a warning about the teenager

2:31:392:31:42

accused of carrying out Wednesday's

school shooting in Florida,

2:31:422:31:44

which left 17 people dead.

2:31:442:31:47

Nikolas Cruz, who's 19,

reportedly posted a comment

2:31:472:31:50

on YouTube claiming he would be

a "professional school shooter".

2:31:502:31:56

Tributes have been paid

to his victims as vigils were held

2:31:562:31:59

late into the night.

2:31:592:32:04

Earlier we spoke to a teacher at the

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School

2:32:042:32:08

and witnessed the attack. She was

teaching when the gunman tried to

2:32:082:32:11

force his way in using his gun.

There was a lot of students and we

2:32:112:32:18

tried to go behind my desk, behind

the filing cabinet, behind the

2:32:182:32:23

laptop. They tried to find cover. It

was instantaneous but within seconds

2:32:232:32:32

the shooter came to my door and he

shot out a glass panel inside the

2:32:322:32:40

door, and then hit students well he

did that. We didn't know it at the

2:32:402:32:44

time but he had hit several students

and they were injured and I didn't

2:32:442:32:49

realise at that moment. Two are

female and a male student who are

2:32:492:32:53

seniors and ready to go to college

soon. They were killed.

2:32:532:33:01

The former Oxfam director accused of

hiring prostitutes in Haiti and Chad

2:33:012:33:06

has denied paying for sex but says

he made some mistakes. In an open

2:33:062:33:11

letter Roland Van Hauwermeiren

admitted he had a intimate

2:33:112:33:16

relationship with a woman in Haiti

but said she wasn't a prostitute.

2:33:162:33:21

The head of the charity Winnie

Byanyima has invited women to tell

2:33:212:33:29

their story and obtain justice.

2:33:292:33:32

The Football Association

is to review thousands of files

2:33:322:33:35

to find out how much was known

about the abuse carried out

2:33:352:33:38

by former youth coach Barry Bennell,

as part of its internal review.

2:33:382:33:40

This week he's been found guilty

of a total of 43 sexual offences

2:33:402:33:44

between 1979 and 1990.

2:33:442:33:45

He'll be sentenced on Monday.

2:33:452:33:46

An investigation by the BBC has

found a significant difference

2:33:462:33:48

between the earnings of male

and female consultants working

2:33:482:33:50

for the NHS in England.

2:33:502:33:53

Figures showed men working full-time

earned on-average 14 thousand pounds

2:33:532:33:55

per year more than their female

counterparts when you include

2:33:552:33:58

bonuses and overtime,

with only 5% of women among

2:33:582:34:00

the top 100 earners.

2:34:002:34:05

The Department of Health says it's

committed to ensuring doctors

2:34:052:34:07

are rewarded fairly and equally

regardless of gender.

2:34:072:34:13

The Hollywood actress

Jennifer Aniston has announced

2:34:132:34:14

she is to separate from her husband

Justin Theroux after

2:34:142:34:17

two years of marriage.

2:34:172:34:18

The pair, who were married

in a secret ceremony

2:34:182:34:20

in Los Angeles in 2015,

reportedly met on the set

2:34:202:34:23

of comedy film Wanderlust.

2:34:232:34:26

They gave no reason for the split

but said it was a mutual decision

2:34:262:34:30

which had been "lovingly made"

at the end of last year.

2:34:302:34:35

That brings you up to date.

2:34:352:34:36

Victoria Derbyshire is on at nine

o'clock this morning on BBC Two.

2:34:362:34:44

Let's find out what's

on the programme today.

2:34:442:34:48

Serious questions for two

professional football clubs. Could

2:34:482:34:51

more have been done to protect

dozens of young players from

2:34:512:34:56

horrific sexual abuse? It comes

after their ex-coach was found

2:34:562:35:00

guilty of 43 offences against 11

boys between 1979 and 1991. Will

2:35:002:35:06

speak exclusively to three men who

gave evidence in the trial, and to

2:35:062:35:11

the ex-player who lifted the lid on

the abuse in the first place. Join

2:35:112:35:14

us on the BBC News Channel and

online.

2:35:142:35:18

Still to come on Breakfast

this morning.

2:35:182:35:20

Could she be about to make history?

2:35:202:35:21

Lizzie Yarnold bids to become

the first British athlete to retain

2:35:212:35:24

Winter Olympics title.

2:35:242:35:25

We'll speak to her as she goes

for Gold in the women's skeleton.

2:35:252:35:30

It's back to school for us.

2:35:302:35:31

The UK is lagging behind

when it comes to Maths.

2:35:312:35:34

We'll be looking at what's

being done to try and get us

2:35:342:35:36

to the top of the class.

2:35:362:35:39

And taking a maths

challenge of our own.

2:35:392:35:42

"Kung hei fat choy"

Happy Chinese New Year.

2:35:422:35:47

2018 is the Year of the Dog.

2:35:472:35:49

We'll bring you some of the colour

ahead of celebrations across the UK.

2:35:492:35:57

The year of the dog, you were a...

A

tiger. I think!

A rat. No, a snake!

2:36:012:36:12

Someone else in the office was a rat

which is quite a good thing.

I was a

2:36:122:36:16

rabbit.

It's important this morning

because in the early hours of this

2:36:162:36:22

morning an event happened and we

have a medal. Dominic Parsons,

2:36:222:36:29

fantastic performance getting

Britain's first medal at the Winter

2:36:292:36:33

Olympics. Thank goodness skeleton

came back into the Olympics in 2002.

2:36:332:36:38

Since then Britain have been really

strong with the women in 2006, four

2:36:382:36:43

years ago Lizzy Yarnold and now a

certain Dominic Parsons.

2:36:432:36:49

Lets get their reaction from the man

himself and join Katherine Downes.

2:36:492:36:56

He doesn't have his bronze medal

just yet but he will get his hands

2:36:562:37:00

on it later on this evening. I've

had to wrestle those hands from a

2:37:002:37:05

large burger which he hardly

deserves. You hadn't eaten anything

2:37:052:37:08

so we did get you a burger as a

congratulations gift. How does it

2:37:082:37:13

feel to be an Olympic bronze

medallist?

I did think it will sink

2:37:132:37:19

in for a while. -- I don't think it

will sink in. I haven't realised

2:37:192:37:25

what I've done yet.

You don't think

anyone will say you've got the

2:37:252:37:31

result from, it's not you?

Either

that or I will wake up and haversack

2:37:312:37:38

and race day-to-day.

You had two

more runs to go today, how did you

2:37:382:37:43

sleep last night knowing that a good

performance today would see you on

2:37:432:37:46

the Olympic podium?

I was exhausted

by the time I went to bed last night

2:37:462:37:52

so I didn't have any problem with

that. My roommate is a notorious

2:37:522:37:59

snorer. He started off OK but he got

louder and louder as the Olympics

2:37:592:38:03

went on. I've been wearing earplugs

with noise cancelling headphones.

2:38:032:38:10

Waking up a couple of times in the

night with very sweaty in years but

2:38:102:38:14

apart from that I got a reasonable

sleep.

Talk us through the run that

2:38:142:38:20

meant you got the medal. Actually it

wasn't the run that you needed

2:38:202:38:26

because Nikita Tregubov had jumped

above you into the silver medal

2:38:262:38:28

position. You were down in third and

any mistakes could have seen you out

2:38:282:38:32

of a medal.

I made a couple of

mistakes on that run. Nikita had

2:38:322:38:43

four very consistent runs all around

50.5 apart from the first one. I

2:38:432:38:48

managed to catch him with a couple

of runs so I just got ahead of him

2:38:482:38:53

by a couple of hundredths. It was

really tight between Martins Dukurs,

2:38:532:38:57

myself and him. I made a couple of

mistakes from corn at nine to 12 and

2:38:572:39:03

then again from 13 to 14 which

basically put the nail in the coffin

2:39:032:39:07

and meant I came down behind Nikita

and I thought had blown it.

What did

2:39:072:39:13

it feel like to know I was so close

but now I think I haven't done it?

I

2:39:132:39:18

was gutted. I saw the number two on

the board and my time of 50.6 wasn't

2:39:182:39:24

good enough. I hit the mats and

didn't really want to move from

2:39:242:39:31

there, just keep my head down...

It

turns out Martins Dukurs' misfortune

2:39:312:39:37

was the twist of luck you need it.

Tell me about that moment, the

2:39:372:39:42

moment you realised you had won an

Olympic medal.

I will still may a

2:39:422:39:49

bit about the run when Martins was

going down. I was standing next to

2:39:492:39:56

Nikita and saw a three next Martins'

name. I said, is that -- does that

2:39:562:40:07

mean I'm ahead of Martins?

But you

are the Olympic bronze medallist!

2:40:072:40:12

You'll be told numerous times over

the next few hours because you will

2:40:122:40:15

get your medal. How will it feel to

have it hung around your neck?

Maybe

2:40:152:40:21

that will help it sink in. I'll wait

until that moment before I believe

2:40:212:40:25

it.

We've got Lizzy Yarnold and

Laura Deas sliding as well, and your

2:40:252:40:30

girlfriend competing as well. Will

you be heading up to the Sliding

2:40:302:40:34

Centre later?

Yes. Our medal

ceremony is just before the girls

2:40:342:40:40

race starts so be trying to get up

there after I've got my medal and

2:40:402:40:45

shout myself forth trying to help

them go faster.

Do you think will

2:40:452:40:49

see another women's medal? Laura

Deas has been topping the time

2:40:492:40:53

sheets, what are your predictions

for the women's competition?

Laura

2:40:532:40:57

and Lizzie have been doing really

well in training and there's a good

2:40:572:41:02

chance for both of them to get a

medal. I'll shout as loud as I can.

2:41:022:41:06

It would be nice not to be the only

Team GB Winter Olympic medallist.

2:41:062:41:11

Thank you for joining us and

congratulations. Enjoy the ceremony

2:41:112:41:15

later. We have our first medallist

of the Winter Olympics, Dom Parsons

2:41:152:41:21

in the men's skeleton. APPLAUSE

STUDIO:

2:41:212:41:35

STUDIO: Dom seems very composed. You

never know how Olympic champions are

2:41:352:41:38

going to be. He seems very, very

chilled.

I think there's an aliment

2:41:382:41:45

of Dom that's still in shock. It was

a rather unexpected bronze medal --

2:41:452:41:51

an element that is still in shock.

On top of that, he won his medal in

2:41:512:41:57

the early hours of the morning back

home in the UK. He had to go through

2:41:572:42:02

doping, he hasn't had anything to

eat. I think it's still just sinking

2:42:022:42:05

in.

STUDIO: I'm sure he's also

exhausted, having a roommate to

2:42:052:42:12

snort!

2:42:122:42:17

snort! -- who snored. Later, in

about 20 minutes, we'll hear from

2:42:192:42:27

Lizzy Yarnold because she can make

history by becoming the first Briton

2:42:272:42:31

ever to retain a Winter Olympic

title. Her first run is on the BBC

2:42:312:42:35

at 11:20am. It won't finish until

tomorrow when we'll know whether she

2:42:352:42:42

can retain her title. Laura Deas as

well. Super Saturday potentially.

2:42:422:42:51

Perhaps you're off out at some point

today. Perhaps you'll be taking a

2:42:532:42:58

bath. -- taking

2:42:582:43:08

bath. -- taking a bus.

2:43:082:43:08

Feel like you're waiting longer

for a bus these days?

2:43:082:43:10

You're probably right.

2:43:102:43:11

Ben's looking at why.

2:43:112:43:12

We take twice as many bus trips

than we do train journeys every year

2:43:122:43:16

and they're a vital lifeline

for many people.

2:43:162:43:18

But our bus network

is shrinking fast.

2:43:182:43:19

BBC research shows that last year

buses in the UK clocked up

2:43:192:43:22

the fewest miles since the 1980s.

2:43:222:43:23

The network has lost 134 million

miles, that's a fall of 8%

2:43:232:43:26

over the last ten years.

2:43:262:43:33

That's the equivalent to 5,000

times around the equator.

2:43:332:43:35

But, at the same time,

passenger numbers are up by 0.7%.

2:43:352:43:40

David Sidebottom is

from Transport Focus,

2:43:402:43:43

an independent transport watchdog.

2:43:432:43:48

Good morning. Why? Why this fall bus

services?

It's been a perfect storm.

2:43:482:43:56

Congestion in the big cities mean

that bus operators need to put more

2:43:562:44:03

buses on for a reliable service

which means you pay more for a

2:44:032:44:06

slower journey. We are using buses

in different ways, out-of-town

2:44:062:44:10

shopping and internet shopping mean

people are going shopping less.

2:44:102:44:16

Companies are having to prop up

rural services. Those are the

2:44:162:44:20

reasons for the big decline.

The

finger of blame is always pointed at

2:44:202:44:25

local authorities because they

subsidise some of those routes that

2:44:252:44:28

aren't particularly profitable but

are vital for people who live in

2:44:282:44:32

more remote areas.

Absolutely.

They've been propping them up for

2:44:322:44:36

the last six or seven years and

their budgets have become a lot

2:44:362:44:40

tighter. Also commercial bus

operators have got to modernise

2:44:402:44:43

their service. We published some

research last week on this.

Who is

2:44:432:44:51

most vulnerable? I imagine it's

young people going to school or

2:44:512:44:54

college and older people.

Yes. If

you look at the two big groups of

2:44:542:44:58

people who use buses, the biggest

group is 14-19 -year-olds.

2:44:582:45:10

group is 14-19 -year-olds. They say

make it simple, plan my journey,

2:45:102:45:15

where I'm travelling on my journey

at the time. Get it right for those

2:45:152:45:18

people, they are the passengers of

tomorrow.

2:45:182:45:29

What can local authorities do to

make it more attractive to take the

2:45:292:45:32

bus without it costing more money?

In some areas of the country it is

2:45:322:45:36

more adversarial in terms of

relationship. The local highways,

2:45:362:45:39

politicians, there are good examples

of where buses work very well, the

2:45:392:45:42

West Midlands and Liverpool, Reading

and other parts of the country, a

2:45:422:45:44

lot of focus on what is right for

the passenger, get the service

2:45:442:45:48

reliable and punctual and more

people will use it.

How easy is it

2:45:482:45:51

to say, let's put in a bus lane to

get around congestion? It does not

2:45:512:45:56

cost the council much to segregated

but

2:45:562:46:08

there is politics involved? We have

seen in some cities like Liverpool a

2:46:192:46:22

few years ago they removed bus

lanes, it is a political decision

2:46:222:46:25

but what passengers tell us all the

time, punctual, reliable service,

2:46:252:46:27

good value for money and modernise

it so people can pay by contact, it

2:46:272:46:29

is only just coming in some areas

now, modernise the service. Is there

2:46:292:46:33

a danger this is a downward spiral?

Is there any incentive things might

2:46:332:46:35

pick up and we see buses making a

comeback?

There are good examples,

2:46:352:46:37

we know for our research, in some

areas 90% of passengers are

2:46:372:46:40

satisfied with their journey. Share

the best practice, look at how to do

2:46:402:46:42

this. There is competition out there

from the car, from the Uber-style

2:46:422:46:49

service. People should get together

and look at where the market is,

2:46:492:46:52

young people particularly.

Interesting as far as young people

2:46:522:46:57

and those who really do rely on it.

Thank you very much.

2:46:572:47:00

You are up-to-date with all the

business, see you very soon.

2:47:002:47:10

Happy New Year! I don't know what

the reply is!

2:47:102:47:20

Thank you! How does it go again?

2:47:202:47:26

Kung hei fat choy!

Have a look outside the building

2:47:322:47:40

now? It is a dragon! Because it is

the year of the Dragon this year.

2:47:402:47:49

You will be telling us all about it

in a minute. It is a beautiful day

2:47:492:47:52

out there. There is frost on the

ground in Oxfordshire this morning,

2:47:522:47:58

there has been, I don't know if it

is melting yet. Look at the view in

2:47:582:48:05

Oxfordshire from Blenheim Palace,

does that of view at the moment but

2:48:052:48:08

Matt is down there, tackling the

weather and that maths on that we

2:48:082:48:13

gave you earlier!

2:48:132:48:17

I

2:48:172:48:18

will give you the answer to that at

the end! It has been a stunning

2:48:182:48:22

start to a Friday morning, it has

been a little bit cold, the grounds

2:48:222:48:27

around Blenheim Palace stretch 2000

acres in fact. The Queen's pond

2:48:272:48:33

behind, named for Elisabeth the

first, and you will notice the frost

2:48:332:48:36

is melting, the sun getting to work.

We have got about ten hours of

2:48:362:48:43

daylight at the moment here in

Oxfordshire, up an hour and a half

2:48:432:48:46

from where we were a month ago and

we will see sunshine daylight

2:48:462:48:53

increase by three minutes every day

at the moment. So spring gives

2:48:532:48:56

around the corner and temperatures

will lift a

2:48:562:49:03

around the corner and temperatures

will lift a touch. A fine day ahead

2:49:032:49:06

for most which I was to the north

and west, you can see them on the

2:49:062:49:10

chart.

2:49:102:49:15

chart. Not as many showers across

other parts of western England and

2:49:152:49:21

Wales but the sunshine will turn

hazy, Fermanagh could see the odd

2:49:212:49:25

shower through the day, the same for

north and Western parts of Scotland.

2:49:252:49:33

But the wind is lighter than

yesterday and would you have got the

2:49:332:49:39

wind and the strengthening sun, it

will feel particularly pleasant. We

2:49:392:49:46

will see rain across parts of

Scotland, Northern Ireland, some of

2:49:462:49:50

which will be heavy with health snow

as well, that works its way into

2:49:502:49:53

northern England and Wales. Where

you see showers tonight in Scotland

2:49:532:49:58

and Northern Ireland it could be ICN

to Saturday. More cloud tomorrow

2:49:582:50:07

than today, they could bring rain

and hail snow spreading towards the

2:50:072:50:13

Midlands. North and west will see

some sunny spells, one or two

2:50:132:50:16

showers. Not as much frost to take

us through Saturday night into

2:50:162:50:23

Sunday because we will see the cloud

increase through Saturday night

2:50:232:50:27

across many western areas. Eastern

areas will stay clear for a time and

2:50:272:50:31

there could be an outside chance of

frost but into Sunday more cloud

2:50:312:50:35

generally speaking across the

country, it will turn grey across

2:50:352:50:39

the western half of the UK as well

without breaks a rain and drizzle

2:50:392:50:42

developing, heavy bursts on the

hills, brightest conditions lasting

2:50:422:50:46

longer is to the east of the country

but notice that

2:50:462:50:58

Ambridge how it is looking here at

Blenheim Palace and, Naga and

2:51:082:51:11

Charlie, I have been working the

rain muscles this morning for you.

2:51:112:51:14

And we will get the answer for you

in a little while because we need to

2:51:142:51:20

explain the conundrum and why we

have been talking about maths so we

2:51:202:51:23

will come back to you, if that is

OK, in a few minutes.

2:51:232:51:26

No problem!

2:51:262:51:28

It's 30 years since GCSEs

were introduced in England,

2:51:282:51:30

Wales and Northern Ireland,

but there's still one

2:51:302:51:32

subject that remains tricky

for many people - maths.

2:51:322:51:40

And we will find out

2:51:412:51:42

And we will find out if Matt has

been finding it tricky as well.

2:51:422:51:45

Our teenagers rank 27th in

the world, and that poor performance

2:51:452:51:47

continues into adulthood.

2:51:472:51:48

We're launching a special

series to try to find out,

2:51:482:51:51

and to show that maths can be

interesting - and even fun.

2:51:512:51:54

Breakfast's Jayne McCubbin

and Tim Muffet, and Naga,

2:51:542:51:55

will be taking their maths

GCSE this summer!

2:51:552:51:58

Do you know the date? Have you got

it all pencilled in?

2:51:582:52:02

There are three dates firmly put in

my calendar.

2:52:022:52:05

Let's see the first lesson.

2:52:052:52:12

# Up in the morning and out

to school...#

2:52:122:52:14

We're

going back to school.

2:52:142:52:15

# American history and practical

math...#

2:52:152:52:17

I never knew

what this was for.

2:52:172:52:23

What do I remember

from my maths days...?

2:52:232:52:25

I remember Rick Astley

was number one.

2:52:252:52:27

I remember phones the

size of house bricks.

2:52:272:52:28

I can't remember much maths, though.

2:52:282:52:30

I love learning every day,

so if anything I'm going to get

2:52:302:52:33

to sharpen the old brain

and probably really appreciate

2:52:332:52:35

just how tough it is.

2:52:352:52:37

# If you can find

a seat...#

2:52:372:52:44

Good morning.

2:52:442:52:45

My name's Mr Seagull and I'm

going to be your maths teacher

2:52:452:52:48

throughout your GCSE course.

2:52:482:52:49

ALL: Good morning, Mr Seagull.

2:52:492:52:50

So you may remember me

from University Challenge...

2:52:502:52:53

HOST:

Emmanuel, Seagull?

2:52:532:52:54

Tchaikovsky?

2:52:542:52:56

Currently, I'm doing

a doctorate in maths education

2:52:562:52:58

at Cambridge University,

researching maths anxiety.

2:52:582:52:59

In four months' time,

you're going to be sitting

2:52:592:53:02

the maths GCSE...for real.

2:53:022:53:08

So I set you a challenge

of doing a past GCSE paper.

2:53:082:53:11

How did you find the papers?

2:53:112:53:12

Really bad.

2:53:122:53:14

Really, really, really bad.

2:53:142:53:18

For me, it was just

remembering what...

2:53:182:53:23

I mean, "Expand and

simplify m+7, m+3."

2:53:232:53:29

What does "expand

and simplify" mean?

2:53:292:53:30

It's just terminology

which I haven't used

2:53:302:53:32

for like 30 odd years.

2:53:322:53:33

Hearing you say that is already

making me feel a bit nervous.

2:53:332:53:36

What did I get at school

for maths in old money?

2:53:362:53:38

O-level, D.

2:53:382:53:43

I hope, at the end of it, it will

mean I can help my kids a bit more.

2:53:432:53:47

I quite enjoyed remembering some

of the maths I used to do.

2:53:472:53:50

I loved algebra.

2:53:502:53:51

You such as what, Naga.

2:53:512:53:58

-- such a swot.

2:54:032:54:05

I did my maths GCSE a couple

of years early and got an A.

2:54:052:54:08

I always loved maths,

but, I'll be honest,

2:54:082:54:09

I haven't seen a maths

paper in years.

2:54:092:54:11

What was the point of Pi?

2:54:112:54:13

It's how you measure

the area of a circle

2:54:132:54:15

and the circumference of a circle.

2:54:152:54:16

OK, class, Pythagoras theorem.

2:54:162:54:17

Can anyone tell me the name?

2:54:172:54:19

Naga?

2:54:192:54:20

Hypotenuse.

2:54:202:54:26

So, Jane, do you know

what A-squared is, if A is 3cm?

2:54:262:54:29

Nine.

2:54:292:54:30

Perfect.

2:54:302:54:31

I know I shouldn't be thinking

this, but I'm thinking

2:54:312:54:33

I haven't got a maths brain.

2:54:332:54:35

I'm not built for maths.

2:54:352:54:36

There's no such thing

as a maths brain.

2:54:362:54:38

I think people have a negative

or positive maths experiences

2:54:382:54:40

and that leads them to think

they can or can't do maths.

2:54:402:54:43

How important is it for parents

to not give off this message of -

2:54:432:54:49

"Oh, I'm terrible at maths,

I don't really understand it?"

2:54:492:54:51

50% of working age adults in England

and Wales have the numeracy skills

2:54:512:54:54

you would expect of an 11-year-old.

2:54:542:54:56

So when their kids come

and ask them for help,

2:54:562:54:58

they haven't got a clue.

2:54:582:55:00

And if we're going to change

the way numbers and maths

2:55:002:55:02

are perceived in the country,

we have to work with kids

2:55:022:55:04

and adults as well.

2:55:042:55:06

I think we're going to enjoy it.

2:55:062:55:07

I'm going to be the positive one.

2:55:072:55:09

I wonder if I'm just beyond that

point in my life and it's too late.

2:55:092:55:12

We can do this, Tim.

2:55:122:55:14

We can do this.

2:55:142:55:15

One theorem down, 58 to go.

2:55:152:55:17

Can we do it?

2:55:172:55:18

Yes, we can!

2:55:182:55:26

So let's go into the classroom now.

Jane is there are you comfortable

2:55:272:55:32

with your maths?

Can we do it? I hope so! I'm not

2:55:322:55:40

confident yet! I'm not confident

yet! Is blinking dogs, roosters and

2:55:402:55:46

monkeys thing is giving me

nightmares, before we even get onto

2:55:462:55:51

the GCSE! Anyway, let me introduce

everybody from the primary school,

2:55:512:55:55

good morning!

Good morning!

That is

nice and loud. I was saying before

2:55:552:56:02

that they do things special here,

they are one of 35 maths hubs in the

2:56:022:56:06

country where they are about the

mastery of maps and one of the

2:56:062:56:10

techniques is to use props and

things like this to bring it all to

2:56:102:56:14

life. Don't go down to close because

we have been working out the dogs

2:56:142:56:18

roosters thing here. Using props to

bring it alive. I want to introduce

2:56:182:56:25

to Sima, one of the parents. You,

like me, have a touch of maths

2:56:252:56:33

anxiety, is that right?

As far as I

can remember I was never great at

2:56:332:56:37

maths, and I always had a phobia of

maps. Even now, my boys, whenever

2:56:372:56:42

they want help for maths, I go and

hire it.

But not now, you are

2:56:422:56:49

working with the school to turn this

around. What are you doing?

It is

2:56:492:56:56

going great because it has helped me

realise that unless I have a

2:56:562:57:00

positive attitude to maths it will

not help my kids, so it is getting

2:57:002:57:02

better, not there yet but getting

there.

Getting better. Thank you so

2:57:022:57:07

much for your time. I am going to

introduce Mike from National

2:57:072:57:12

Numeracy and this is important to

you that parents are not allowed to

2:57:122:57:15

say, I can't do it, I don't have a

maths brain?

That is right, we are

2:57:152:57:21

trying to enable everybody, parent

or not, to be confident to use

2:57:212:57:26

numbers and data, make good

decisions in daily life. We all

2:57:262:57:28

carry around this small computing

pad, bigger than it had to get to

2:57:282:57:37

the moon, so we want to empower

people to think about maths for all

2:57:372:57:40

sorts of things. So when you hear

people say, I don't have a maths

2:57:402:57:48

brain, what do you think ayes if

there is such a thing as a maths

2:57:482:57:52

gene, we have all got it, so we want

to move from, I can't do maths, too,

2:57:522:57:57

we are all numbers people. I hope

you are right! I have got my maths

2:57:572:58:02

GCSE coming up! Let's chat now to Ms

Winfield, Nicole. You are bringing

2:58:022:58:09

maths alive through these props. How

is it changing things here? We are

2:58:092:58:17

adopting teaching and mastery

approaches so we want them to

2:58:172:58:20

acquire a deep, long-term, adaptable

understanding of the maths, looking

2:58:202:58:26

at using manipulative and

representation so that every child

2:58:262:58:28

has access into their mathematics

and there is nobody in the classroom

2:58:282:58:32

that says, I can't do it. It is a

mindset shift of us as teachers

2:58:322:58:36

which hopefully will feed off to the

children as well. This is

2:58:362:58:40

interesting for me and Naga as well,

and Tim, doing our maths GCSE. Naga,

2:58:402:58:47

for you, when you were at school,

while I was bottom of the class, you

2:58:472:58:51

were at the top of the class, so

much that sometimes you were left

2:58:512:58:55

behind because people were not

bringing you along with them. What

2:58:552:58:58

is interesting in this school is

that nobody ever moves onto the next

2:58:582:59:03

step until everybody has mastered

the basics, but that does not mean

2:59:032:59:07

the people at the top left behind,

it means they work on deeper

2:59:072:59:13

understanding, like you guys here.

Tell me what you go through when you

2:59:132:59:16

are doing these sums every day? This

is where you explain to your partner

2:59:162:59:24

how you got your answer. These are

the convince me glasses where you

2:59:242:59:29

convince your partner you are

correct and they are incorrect.

2:59:292:59:32

These are the use it glasses to use

the same method in a different

2:59:322:59:35

problem. These are the prove it

glasses to prove it in another

2:59:352:59:41

representation. Naga and Tim, if you

are watching, this is what we are

2:59:412:59:46

going to do, we are going to prove

that we can do it, Mr Segal!

2:59:463:00:01

that we can do it, Mr Segal! And Mr

Seagull is sitting here with us. Can

3:00:013:00:04

you explain the problem and we will

see if Matt worked it out?

It is in

3:00:043:00:10

honour of Chinese New Year. There is

a handover party for the top dogs,

3:00:103:00:14

top roosters and top monkeys. There

are twice as many dogs as roosters

3:00:143:00:20

and twice as many roosters as

monkeys. So assuming that all the

3:00:203:00:26

dogs have four feet and the roosters

and monkeys have two feet, if there

3:00:263:00:31

are 88 animal feed at the party, how

many dogs, roosters and monkeys are

3:00:313:00:36

their?

And we won't even talk about

what the punch tasted like! Let's

3:00:363:00:40

find out from Matt if you managed to

figure it out, we have had a lot of

3:00:403:00:44

people message as today with their

answers and, Matt, looking gorgeous

3:00:443:00:49

down in Blenheim, did you manage to

figure it out?

3:00:493:00:56

24 bananas, 13 pairs and 16

aubergines.

Well done! You get a

3:00:563:01:03

mark for enthusiasm!

We did get it,

we put our heads together and we

3:01:033:01:08

think we've got the right answer.

What is the answer?

We think it's 16

3:01:083:01:16

dogs, eight monkeys and four

roosters.

Switch it round. It's one

3:01:163:01:26

you can do but it can seem so

daunting when you're faced with

3:01:263:01:31

something like that.

I think with

maps it can seem a daunting subject

3:01:313:01:35

but the way to approach it is to

break things down into a simple

3:01:353:01:39

method.

I'm entirely on board with

the positive message. I always find

3:01:393:01:46

there's more questions than answers.

I want to know how many cheese

3:01:463:01:49

footballs were at the party. I'm one

of those people who feels like I

3:01:493:01:57

have to step aside from it. I know

that people like you say that there

3:01:573:02:00

is no one who is not good at maths,

it's just about bad experiences, and

3:02:003:02:06

I think that is absolutely true.

It's a conversation we need to be

3:02:063:02:10

having up and down the country. It's

our attitude towards mathematics

3:02:103:02:15

that has to change. There is a

spectrum of abilities. But all of us

3:02:153:02:22

can reach a stage of mathematical

competency.

This was an issue about

3:02:223:02:27

ratios, but trigonometry, I don't

use that. Why do I need to learn

3:02:273:02:34

about things like that?

Some people

might ask what is trigonometry?

It's

3:02:343:02:42

about question. My students often

ask me when do I need to use this. A

3:02:423:02:48

lot of maps obviously develops your

thinking skills, but also we are

3:02:483:02:52

humans. What differentiates us from

the monkeys and roosters is we are

3:02:523:02:57

an intellectual species, we like to

explore creative thought. Why do we

3:02:573:03:00

create music and art? Because we

can. The same thing with

3:03:003:03:05

mathematics.

What was your

impression of the class, our three

3:03:053:03:13

contestants?

Not contestants, we are

not competing.

What did you make of

3:03:133:03:18

the atmosphere in the room?

I think

they are ready for the challenge.

3:03:183:03:23

May the 27th, it's nearly 100 days

away.

Is quite a real classroom

3:03:233:03:31

experience you are replicating. I

think I'm right in saying that Jane

3:03:313:03:35

is the one that feels the most

challenged. Your thinking I love it.

3:03:353:03:39

That's a big starting point. You

were saying in the schools you

3:03:393:03:44

teach, you have that. You experience

that every day as a teacher.

As a

3:03:443:03:49

teacher your job is to make sure you

can support the students at

3:03:493:03:55

entry-level. That's the joy and

beauty of teaching.

It makes a

3:03:553:03:59

massive difference being taught by

an enthusiastic teacher. Thank you.

3:03:593:04:06

We would love you to get involved

in our maths series.

3:04:063:04:11

Bobby's maths puzzle

is on our Twitter page.

3:04:113:04:13

And if you want to find out

the answer and try a GCSE

3:04:133:04:17

maths question yourself,

go to the BBC Bitesize's revision

3:04:173:04:19

page on bbc.co.uk/mindset and click

on the Breakfast logo.

3:04:193:04:21

Let's take a last, brief

look at the headlines

3:04:213:04:23

where you are this morning.

3:04:233:04:23

where you are this morning.

3:04:233:06:00

on your screen there.

3:06:003:06:01

Now it's back to Charley and Naga.

3:06:013:06:09

Welcome back.

3:06:093:06:14

Welcome back.

3:06:143:06:15

Today, Lizzy Yarnold

will start her quest to become

3:06:153:06:17

the first Briton ever to retain

a Winter Olympic title.

3:06:173:06:20

She's been building up to this

all winter, and Mike went

3:06:203:06:22

to meet her during a World Cup

event in Germany.

3:06:223:06:28

Back on top of the mountain

where Lizzy Yarnold has spent

3:06:283:06:30

the winter preparing

for her shot at Olympic history.

3:06:303:06:33

Ah-ha!

3:06:333:06:34

Hi, Lizzy!

3:06:343:06:35

How are you?

3:06:353:06:36

Over tea in her hotel apartment,

I met the sled that now

3:06:363:06:39

carries her dreams.

3:06:393:06:44

I had no idea how heavy

that is, my goodness!

3:06:443:06:46

I suppose you just

develop the strength.

3:06:463:06:48

Yeah, you have a knack

for how to pick it up.

3:06:483:06:51

As the moment arrives she's actually

been thinking about since winning

3:06:513:06:54

gold in Sochi four years ago.

3:06:543:06:57

It's this big hairy goal I had

as soon as I finished in Sochi that

3:06:573:07:00

I would absolutely love to be

selected for another Olympic Games,

3:07:003:07:04

but to be the first

British Winter Olympian

3:07:043:07:07

to retain my title

would be making history.

3:07:073:07:11

For Lizzy Yarnold and the other

athletes here it is just about that

3:07:113:07:14

minute when they throw themselves

down the tunnel of ice and 90 mph,

3:07:143:07:18

but before the Winter Olympics

they'll have been on the road for 16

3:07:183:07:22

weeks away from home putting up

with the most hostile and coldest

3:07:223:07:27

conditions you can imagine, just

trying to keep warm for hours on end

3:07:273:07:30

before it's finally their turn.

3:07:303:07:32

It's one reason Lizzy

decided to take a break,

3:07:323:07:36

a whole year away from the sport,

even if it was then a shock

3:07:363:07:39

when she returned.

3:07:393:07:40

I was doing cycling and running

and all these different sports

3:07:403:07:43

thinking I was physically fit

and then getting back on a sled

3:07:433:07:46

was really overwhelming.

3:07:463:07:50

You know, the sensation of your body

rattling the whole way down.

3:07:503:07:54

You know, when I visualised practice

being back on the sled,

3:07:543:07:56

I didn't envisage the bums.

3:07:563:08:00

--I didn't envisage the bumps.

3:08:003:08:01

I got a taste of the pain your body

goes through when I went down

3:08:013:08:05

the track in Winterberg in Germany

in the relative comfort

3:08:053:08:07

of a bobsled.

3:08:073:08:08

In a skeleton you're much more

exposed with your face inches away

3:08:083:08:11

from the ice.

3:08:113:08:12

You'll go down the track

with your head completely looking

3:08:123:08:15

forward and you can

see what's going on.

3:08:153:08:17

But as the speed picks up

and the G-forces pick up,

3:08:173:08:19

you head is pulled

down onto the ice.

3:08:193:08:21

You could be going, you know,

five G-forces so your head comes

3:08:213:08:25

down and is bumping on the ice,

so you have to learn to pick up

3:08:253:08:29

different shades of white.

3:08:293:08:31

It's a good fun game of trying

to piece everything together

3:08:313:08:32

down the track.

3:08:323:08:33

Fun is one word for it,

but actually having fun

3:08:333:08:36

with her mates was how it started

for Lizzy on a mattress

3:08:363:08:39

in a school playing field.

3:08:393:08:42

Whenever it snowed we would, like,

we had gap students,

3:08:423:08:44

we'd take their mattresses.

3:08:443:08:45

I was doing it from

a really early age.

3:08:453:08:47

On the mattresses?

3:08:473:08:48

Yeah, on the mattresses,

then one of gappies broke their arm

3:08:483:08:51

and then that got banned.

3:08:513:08:52

I think the past 18 months has been

very up and down but I really

3:08:523:08:59

wouldn't want it any other way,

I wanted to come back and go

3:08:593:09:04

into Pyeongchang a lot more

under my own steam and I think I'm

3:09:043:09:08

really looking forward to us

all kind of trying to do it again.

3:09:083:09:15

The determination is there and we

wish Lizzy Yarnold all the best.

3:09:183:09:23

Also, happy New Year.

3:09:233:09:27

Today billions of people

around the world will be

3:09:273:09:29

celebrating Chinese New Year.

3:09:293:09:32

2018 is the Year of the Dog and,

according to the Chinese Zodiac,

3:09:323:09:35

the dog is a true companion,

associated with loyalty,

3:09:353:09:38

honesty and intelligence.

3:09:383:09:39

Charlie's headed out of the studio

this morning to find out more.

3:09:393:09:47

We are out in the bright sunshine

here and the Golden Dragon behind,

3:09:503:09:55

I'm just going to pick up because

Mike is having a look around as

3:09:553:09:58

well. Just a quick thought about

Lizzy Yarnold?

Fantastic. Lizzy

3:09:583:10:04

Yarnold can make history today.

11:20am is her first run and then

3:10:043:10:08

two more tomorrow morning. She

hadn't been in great form until this

3:10:083:10:12

week. Do you know why it's funny?

Because the Dragon controls rainfall

3:10:123:10:21

and water and it prevents, or if you

want it to it can bring rainfall or

3:10:213:10:25

sunshine.

, over this way and let's

meet a couple of people. Good

3:10:253:10:32

morning. As we look at the Golden

Dragon, talk us through some of the

3:10:323:10:40

mythology behind the year of the

dog.

The year of the dog is the 11th

3:10:403:10:48

of the Chinese Zodiac. People born

in the year of the dog are believed

3:10:483:10:56

to have very strong characteristics

of honesty, loyalty, smart and also

3:10:563:11:03

they can take huge responsibility.

There will be a lot of events

3:11:033:11:06

happening across the UK.

Masses,

particularly in Manchester this

3:11:063:11:11

week. We've got the Dragon in Saint

Anne 's Square all over the weekend.

3:11:113:11:16

It's going to be really exciting and

culminating on Sunday with lots of

3:11:163:11:22

colour and celebrations, fireworks

and performances in Chinatown in

3:11:223:11:24

Manchester.

Does the camera want to

have a walk around the Dragon? This

3:11:243:11:32

is obviously a giant inflatable

Golden Dragon. Is it of any

3:11:323:11:37

particular significance, the Golden

Dragon?

It

3:11:373:11:44

Dragon?

It represents the power of

the Chinese. Every year we will

3:11:443:11:49

bring in the Dragon as a symbol and

we also have the Dragon parading in

3:11:493:11:53

Chinatown on Sunday. These dragons

will be

3:11:533:12:02

will be displayed in St Anne's

Square tomorrow's.

People are always

3:12:073:12:11

fascinated by the characteristics

associated with the year of their

3:12:113:12:13

bed. -- year of their birth. I was

born in the year of the Tiger.

It's

3:12:133:12:23

a way of adding greater meaning to

celebrations and makes it more

3:12:233:12:30

related to bowl for people, really.

There's a lot of context, cultural,

3:12:303:12:39

historical, for a lot of people.

We've found Mike. Thank you very

3:12:393:12:44

much. We told you in advance you're

not allowed to get on board.

It's a

3:12:443:12:49

bit soft, to be fair. It's a

wonderful symbol of Chinese good

3:12:493:12:53

luck and a great way to see in the

Chinese New Year.

A lot of people

3:12:533:12:58

having celebrations over the next

few days. It's so beautiful today.

3:12:583:13:03

This morning we were rather dreading

coming outside because it is nippy.

3:13:033:13:07

In this sunshine it looks wonderful.

Thank you to my guests this morning.

3:13:073:13:14

We wish you a very good day.

3:13:143:13:20
