Hello, this is Breakfast,

with Dan Walker and Naga Munchetty.

0:00:070:00:12

A move on gun control policy

in the United States.

0:00:120:00:15

President Trump indicates he's

willing to make a change.

0:00:150:00:18

As students prepare to march

in the state capital

0:00:180:00:21

after last week's school shooting,

he says he'd support a ban

0:00:210:00:24

on devices which turn

rifles into machine-guns.

0:00:240:00:32

Good morning, it's

Wednesday 21st February.

0:00:390:00:42

Also this morning:

0:00:420:00:48

A warning of a humanitarian disaster

in Syria where hundreds of people

0:00:480:00:51

have died after days of bombing.

0:00:510:00:55

We look at how early onset

dementia could be linked

0:00:550:00:57

to regular heavy drinking.

0:00:570:01:02

Good morning.

0:01:020:01:07

A crucial time of year for the

farmers with animals going back out

0:01:070:01:10

into the fields. And high time to

get a grip on the problem of dogs

0:01:100:01:15

attacking livestock, according to

some.

0:01:150:01:18

Thousands of small firms were

mistreated by RBS in the financial

0:01:180:01:23

crisis according to a report

released by MPs. I will speak to one

0:01:230:01:27

of the businesses affected by it.

0:01:270:01:31

In sport, Great Britain's curlers

have beaten reigning Olympic

0:01:310:01:34

champions Canada to reach

the women's semi finals in

0:01:340:01:36

Pyeongchang.

0:01:360:01:37

And Nick has the weather.

0:01:370:01:42

Coldest to start the day in Scotland

and Northern Ireland, with frost and

0:01:420:01:46

a few freezing fog patches. More

cloud for England and Wales. Damp

0:01:460:01:49

and drizzly in a few spots. Lots of

wine and dry weather to come for the

0:01:490:01:54

rest of the week into the weekend,

but it is definitely turning colder.

0:01:540:01:58

Good morning.

0:01:580:01:59

First, our main story.

0:01:590:02:01

President Trump has signed an order

to ban bump-stock devices,

0:02:010:02:04

which were used by a gunman

who killed 58 Las Vegas

0:02:040:02:07

concert-goers last year.

0:02:070:02:09

Mr Trump says legislation that

outlaws equipment which turns

0:02:090:02:11

rifles into machine-guns

could be ready "very soon".

0:02:110:02:14

David Willis reports.

0:02:140:02:20

We don't know where the shoot is!

The scenes are nothing new here, but

0:02:200:02:25

last week's high school shooting in

Florida has galvanised the debate on

0:02:250:02:30

gun control in America in a way few

here can remember. Students who

0:02:300:02:35

survived an attack which killed 17

of their teachers and classmates are

0:02:350:02:38

speaking out fluidly and forcefully.

Do not let people try to get under

0:02:380:02:44

your skin!

Their youthful voices

resonating where those of long

0:02:440:02:50

serving politicians have largely

fallen flat.

We are what's bringing

0:02:500:02:55

the change. We are going to keep

talking. We are going to keep

0:02:550:02:58

pushing until something is done,

because people are dying and this

0:02:580:03:02

can't happen any more.

Reflecting

the national mood of grief and anger

0:03:020:03:06

in the wake of last week's shooting,

President Trump, who supports gun

0:03:060:03:11

ownership, offered a confession, a

ban on a device used to devastating

0:03:110:03:16

effect on the Las Vegas massacre

last year.

I signed a memorandum

0:03:160:03:21

directing the attorney general the

proposed regulations to ban all

0:03:210:03:26

devices that turned legal weapons

into machine-guns.

Students arriving

0:03:260:03:33

for a rally later today in the

Florida state capital Tallahassee

0:03:330:03:36

say that's not enough. Some are

heading to Washington at the

0:03:360:03:41

invitation of the White House to

press the case for comprehensive gun

0:03:410:03:47

reforms with the president himself.

Some here are hailing it's a turning

0:03:470:03:51

point in acrimonious debate around

guns, at America has been here so

0:03:510:03:55

many times before.

0:03:550:04:00

The bombardment of the rebel-held

Eastern Ghouta by the Syrian

0:04:000:04:04

government and its allies has

continued for a third day,

0:04:040:04:06

prompting the United Nations to warn

of the risk of a second Aleppo.

0:04:060:04:10

Reports suggest around 250 people

have died following two

0:04:100:04:12

days of attacks.

0:04:120:04:13

According to activists,

it is the worst violence

0:04:130:04:15

in the Eastern Ghouta area

near Damascus since 2013.

0:04:150:04:21

Speaking from the area, one activist

told the BBC this is as bad as it

0:04:210:04:27

has ever been.

0:04:270:04:30

The bombs are dropping on us like

rain. There's nowhere to hide from

0:04:300:04:34

this nightmare in Eastern Ghouta.

0:04:340:04:40

We will be speaking to one agency to

find out exactly what happening

0:04:400:04:47

there later.

0:04:470:04:49

A landmark ruling is being reviewed

by the Supreme Court,

0:04:490:04:52

over whether police are accountable

for their failure to investigate

0:04:520:04:54

victim's allegations of the black

cab rapist John Worboys.

0:04:540:04:57

Scotland Yard is appealing

against a previous decision

0:04:570:04:59

that they breached the human rights

of two women whose testimony

0:04:590:05:02

they failed to investigate properly.

0:05:020:05:03

they failed to investigate properly.

0:05:030:05:05

Our legal correspondent

Clive Coleman reports

0:05:050:05:06

on what could be a landmark case

for victim's rights.

0:05:060:05:09

The two women were sexually

assaulted by John Worboys in 2003

0:05:090:05:16

and 2007 but when they reported the

attacks to the police they weren't

0:05:160:05:21

believed. As a result of the police

failures, he was able to continue to

0:05:210:05:25

attack women until he was brought to

justice in 2009. The High Court and

0:05:250:05:31

Court of Appeal ruled the police had

a duty under the Human Rights Act to

0:05:310:05:36

investigate serious violence against

women and could be held accountable

0:05:360:05:41

in the courts if they failed in that

duty. The women, who both suffered

0:05:410:05:47

psychologically, were awarded

£41,000 in total, which they'll keep

0:05:470:05:51

in any event. But the net supported

the then Home Secretary Theresa May

0:05:510:05:58

appeal to the Supreme Court, arguing

its duty was fulfilled simply by

0:05:580:06:01

having practices and procedures to

investigate in-place -- the Met. A

0:06:010:06:08

victory for the women would be

police forces could face human

0:06:080:06:12

rights actions whenever they fail to

properly investigate serious violent

0:06:120:06:15

crime.

0:06:150:06:17

Heavy drinking may be a major risk

factor for the early

0:06:170:06:20

onset of dementia.

0:06:200:06:23

Scientists in France looked

at 57,000 cases of dementia

0:06:230:06:25

in people under 65 and found

that a third could have

0:06:250:06:28

been caused by alcohol-related

brain damage.

0:06:280:06:30

Ben Ando reports.

0:06:300:06:36

This was a very large study. It is

obviously a single study and we will

0:06:360:06:41

have to look at whether the results

can be generalised elsewhere. But

0:06:410:06:44

potentially it has huge importance.

This is potentially a preventable

0:06:440:06:49

cause of dementia. So it might have

very big public health implications.

0:06:490:06:54

What all the indications for the way

that we look after the health of

0:06:540:06:58

people with alcohol use disorders.

0:06:580:07:03

The majority of small

and medium-sized companies

0:07:030:07:05

are still paying male employees more

than their female colleagues,

0:07:050:07:08

according to the latest

government figures.

0:07:080:07:09

Companies have six weeks left

to report their gender pay gap.

0:07:090:07:12

So far almost 1,000

businesses have responded out

0:07:120:07:14

of the 9,000 asked.

0:07:140:07:15

Our business and consumer

correspondent correspondent

0:07:150:07:17

Nina Warhurst has more.

0:07:170:07:18

It is time to answer the question -

what does every man and woman

0:07:180:07:22

in your company get paid?

0:07:220:07:29

And if you like double

their salaries, what is the figure

0:07:290:07:32

in the middle of each sex,

and what is the gap

0:07:320:07:35

between those two figures?

0:07:350:07:36

474% of companies this figure was

higher for men, if deemed % higher

0:07:360:07:39

for women.

0:07:390:07:45

for women. -- 15%.

0:07:450:07:47

What this data does

not look at is any

0:07:470:07:49

difference in salaries between men

and women who were doing the same

0:07:490:07:52

job.

0:07:520:07:53

But what it does show is that

while there were lots of women lower

0:07:530:07:57

paid jobs, women aren't earning

those big salaries in the same

0:07:570:08:00

way as men.

0:08:000:08:02

At Clydesdale Yorkshire bank,

men earned 37% more than women.

0:08:020:08:05

There was literally

four days of meetings,

0:08:050:08:07

and there was only one

female in those four days.

0:08:070:08:13

There were almost four times

as many women in lower

0:08:130:08:16

paid jobs.

0:08:160:08:16

It has been lonely at times.

0:08:160:08:18

I regularly find myself in positions

where there is not nearly

0:08:180:08:21

as many women.

0:08:210:08:22

We have set ourselves a target.

0:08:220:08:24

So by 2020, we want to make sure

that there is 40% of women

0:08:240:08:28

in our most senior roles.

0:08:280:08:32

So I think that's quite bold,

and I think everybody

0:08:320:08:35

in financial services should be

making those kinds of targets

0:08:350:08:37

and progressing towards them.

0:08:370:08:41

Six to ago, around 8,000

firms still to report,

0:08:410:08:45

and then come the bigger questions:

What exactly do the full

0:08:450:08:48

figures tell us?

0:08:480:08:49

And what should and can be done?

0:08:490:08:52

More than 60 Brexit-supporting

Conservative MPs have written

0:08:520:08:54

to the Prime Minister,

setting out what they believe

0:08:540:08:56

Britain should achieve

from a deal with Brussels.

0:08:560:08:58

The MPs, from the European Research

Group of Tory backbenchers,

0:08:580:09:01

insist that Britain should be free

to negotiate trade deals with other

0:09:010:09:04

countries, as soon

as it leaves the EU.

0:09:040:09:07

Senior ministers will meet tomorrow

to discuss what the government wants

0:09:070:09:10

from the final Brexit deal.

0:09:100:09:13

The impact of social media

and screen use on young people's

0:09:130:09:16

health is to be examined by MPs.

0:09:160:09:20

The Science and Technology Committee

will address mounting

0:09:200:09:23

concerns that mobile phones,

in particular, are harming children

0:09:230:09:25

and young adults.

0:09:250:09:28

The awards season is in full swing

and tonight it's the turn

0:09:280:09:31

of the music industry to celebrate

with the Brit Awards.

0:09:310:09:39

22-year-old Londoner

Dua Lipa leads the way

0:09:410:09:43

with five nominations,

while eyes will also be

0:09:430:09:45

on Ed Sheeran after his

record breaking year.

0:09:450:09:47

Our entertainment correspondent

Colin Paterson reports.

0:09:470:09:53

Dua Lipa's five Brits nominations

are the most ever in one year by a

0:09:530:09:57

female artist. The 22-year-old

London had a number one with New

0:09:570:10:02

Rules and is heading towards 200,000

sales of her debut. At the moment

0:10:020:10:08

she is bigger than Beyonce, Taylor

Swift and Rihanna and she has what

0:10:080:10:11

all of those huge American artist

has.

She is not workshy, she will

0:10:110:10:15

turn up and do the interviews and

promo and she will spend 24 hours

0:10:150:10:20

doing a video and extreme focused

pretty for seven.

-- 24 seven. But

0:10:200:10:28

the night's biggest award Album of

the Year is expected to go to Ed

0:10:280:10:32

Sheeran. Divide was number one for a

third of last year and it will be a

0:10:320:10:37

major shock if it did not win.

You

will keep a secret saviour. You will

0:10:370:10:46

keep the paraphernalia...

One man

isn't happy about the BRIT Awards is

0:10:460:10:51

Liam Gallagher, who is nominated for

best male, but is furious that he

0:10:510:10:56

hasn't been asked to perform and

says the Brits have ballooned it and

0:10:560:11:02

are too scared to let him onstage.

And unlike at busters were almost

0:11:020:11:07

every actress wore black on the red

carpet, at the Brits expect a

0:11:070:11:11

variety of outfits. Instead acts are

being asked to wear a a white rose

0:11:110:11:18

pin if they want to show solidarity

for anti-harassment movements.

0:11:180:11:23

The Queen has attended

London Fashion Week for the first

0:11:230:11:26

time in her 66 year reign.

0:11:260:11:27

Her Majesty sat in the front row

of a show by an up and coming

0:11:270:11:31

designer Richard Quinn,

next to the woman often hailed

0:11:310:11:36

as the 'queen of fashion',

Vogue magazine's Anna Wintour.

0:11:360:11:41

Do you know what was interesting?

She is wearing sunglasses and the

0:11:410:11:46

Queen is fully wrapped up, with

gloves.

0:11:460:11:51

I will show you later there are a

few pictures of her on the front

0:11:510:11:56

pages and I think it is one of those

things, get her looking miserable.

0:11:560:12:00

I am sure she loved it.

There's loads of footage of her

0:12:000:12:04

smiling.

0:12:040:12:09

Nick will have the weather forecast,

but now we want to talk about the

0:12:110:12:15

Winter Olympics.

Is it another morning of curling?

0:12:150:12:17

It is! You won't have it tomorrow,

so enjoy it today. Great Britain's

0:12:170:12:23

women are through to the semifinals,

beating the reigning champions. It

0:12:230:12:26

was a narrow win, but beating Canada

is a big deal. They can have a day

0:12:260:12:33

off tomorrow now because they are

through and the men are now trying

0:12:330:12:36

to do the same. Canada led for most

of the contest.

0:12:360:12:45

Eve Muirhead and co,

who won bronze at the last Games,

0:12:450:12:48

took the last end by

two stones to win 6-5.

0:12:480:12:51

The men's team are

trying to join them.

0:12:510:12:53

They're currently playing

their final group match

0:12:530:12:55

against the USA.

0:12:550:12:56

There was a great performance

from snowboader Billy Morgan

0:12:560:12:58

in the big air event too.

0:12:580:13:00

The Brit is in Saturday's final

after taking the final qualification

0:13:000:13:04

spot in his heat.

0:13:040:13:04

A Lionel Messi goal denied Chelsea

victory against Barcelona

0:13:040:13:07

in the last 16 of

the Champions League.

0:13:070:13:09

Chelsea had earlier led

through Willian at Stamford Bridge

0:13:090:13:11

before Messi's vital away goal.

0:13:110:13:16

And England women head coach

Phil Neville has named

0:13:160:13:24

Chelsea's Anita Asante in his first

squad for next month's She Believes

0:13:240:13:27

Cup.

0:13:270:13:27

Asante was one of several players

who'd said they'd been poorly

0:13:270:13:30

treated by previous

boss Mark Sampson.

0:13:300:13:33

I was going to say, surely there is

a better clip of her than just

0:13:330:13:38

missing a goal?

Let's dig something nice out. I will

0:13:380:13:42

do my very best.

It wasn't me! We can't blame Nick

0:13:420:13:47

for any of the clips he is going to

show us this morning. A

0:13:470:13:54

for any of the clips he is going to

show us this morning. A frost to

0:13:540:13:55

start the day in Scotland and

Northern Ireland, freezing fog

0:13:550:13:59

patches, a lot of cloud in England

and Wales, damp and drizzly but dry

0:13:590:14:04

weather generally and where you have

cloud it should gradually brighten

0:14:040:14:08

up, not much sunshine but

brightening up a bit. Looking at the

0:14:080:14:13

satellite, cloud moving around an

area of high pressure on a

0:14:130:14:16

north-easterly breeze, the bulk of

the cloud is filtering in to England

0:14:160:14:20

and Wales. A bit damp in a few

spots, parts of the Midlands and

0:14:200:14:24

northern England, the chance of

further drizzle. Probably western

0:14:240:14:29

fringes of England and Wales seeing

sunny spells, as well as the far

0:14:290:14:33

south-east. Fog patches slow to

clear in Northern Ireland, sunny

0:14:330:14:37

spells in Scotland. Light winds,

temperatures starting to edge down,

0:14:370:14:44

rise of seven to nine. A few spots

yesterday getting into double

0:14:440:14:48

figures. Tonight more breaks in the

cloud, more of the land showing up,

0:14:480:14:55

cloud free, that will allow

temperatures to drop away more

0:14:550:14:58

widely than last night. More of a

widespread frost going into tomorrow

0:14:580:15:03

morning, more blue showing the

frost, temperatures at all a few

0:15:030:15:07

degrees below freezing. Many will be

clear and sunny to start tomorrow,

0:15:070:15:10

there will be some freezing fog.

With very light breezes, they will

0:15:100:15:15

be slow to clear. When they do, some

sunny spells, some areas of cloud,

0:15:150:15:21

the vast majority having a dry day

tomorrow but the breeze picks up a

0:15:210:15:25

bit for Northern Ireland into

western Scotland, enough cloud here

0:15:250:15:28

to produce a few light showers and

those temperatures again leaking a

0:15:280:15:33

degree or so through the day

tomorrow. This is how Friday is

0:15:330:15:36

shaping up, the wind arrows coming

in from the continent, that's an

0:15:360:15:40

area where we get dry air coming in,

which means generally cloud free.

0:15:400:15:45

After a frosty start, a good deal of

sunshine around on Friday, more

0:15:450:15:49

cloud in Northern Ireland and

western Scotland. This is the setup

0:15:490:15:53

for the weekend, high pressure in

Scandinavia, the flow of air around

0:15:530:15:57

that coming from the east to the UK,

not a One Direction and the breeze

0:15:570:16:01

picking up. For the weekend, a lot

of sunshine on Saturday -- warm

0:16:010:16:08

direction. This is the forecast for

four locations in the weekend, the

0:16:080:16:13

general picture is the same for the

UK, lots of sunshine on Saturday,

0:16:130:16:17

goods police spells on Sunday but

the temperatures coming down -- good

0:16:170:16:22

sunny spells. A cold wind but you

haven't seen anything yet, still

0:16:220:16:27

expecting bitter cold on the way

next week.

0:16:270:16:32

Let's look at the papers. Have you

got one?

Let's start on the front

0:16:320:16:37

page of the Metro son, a Strictly

Come Dancing exclusive, you may

0:16:370:16:42

remember Brendan Cole, one of the

long-running dancers on Strictly

0:16:420:16:47

Come Dancing, has not been asked to

return for 2019 -- the Sun. The

0:16:470:16:53

reason he's been asked not to come

back is he ignored protocol when

0:16:530:16:59

some of the dances visited

Buckingham Palace and he asked the

0:16:590:17:03

Duchess to dance for a festive

special. Strictly sources said it

0:17:030:17:06

was the last straw. The team at

Strictly saw him as an

0:17:060:17:12

uncontrollable.

The front page of

the Metro times, there's the Queen

0:17:120:17:17

and Anna Wintour, as we showed you

earlier, at London Fashion Week --

0:17:170:17:20

Times.

0:17:200:17:26

Times. And charities in crisis with

Oxfam. And the front page of the

0:17:260:17:31

Daily Mail, its main story saying a

new financial watchdog is a taxable

0:17:310:17:34

under. Looking at the regulator, the

man... Has admitted to using a tax

0:17:340:17:44

scheme that helped cut tax bills. He

was made to pay back £140,000 back

0:17:440:17:55

to the taxman plus interest. The

Telegraph, the Queen and Anna

0:17:550:18:00

Wintour on the front cover, then she

is looking a bit cheerier at London

0:18:000:18:04

Fashion Week and the same story

about charity, Save the Children

0:18:040:18:07

boss in text scandal. He admitted

sending inappropriate messages to

0:18:070:18:12

staff. Ecole insight from Allison

Pearson who said admit it, we are

0:18:120:18:19

rubbish at the Winter Olympics --

Ecole inside. Is that about Elise

0:18:190:18:24

Christie?

-- Ecole inside. Her agony

from yesterday is all over the

0:18:240:18:31

papers -- Ecole.

0:18:310:18:35

You can't argue she isn't a fighter,

she has vowed to come back in

0:18:350:18:40

Beijing in four years. In the

Guardian, Sean Ingle, who is in

0:18:400:18:46

Pyeongchang, has talked about

whether it is bad luck or bad

0:18:460:18:49

racing, having re- watched all the

races there is a case to be mad her

0:18:490:18:53

all or nothing approach narrows the

margins by two great a margin --

0:18:530:18:58

made. -- too. It's on the BBC

website, the three and a half was

0:18:580:19:09

watching her yesterday, the mum said

she is a great role model because

0:19:090:19:14

learning how to deal with failure is

part we should be learning and

0:19:140:19:18

especially children -- three and a

half -year-old.

Is that what Pearson

0:19:180:19:22

says?

She said we are rubbish at

Winter sports -- is that what

0:19:220:19:29

Allison Pearson says.

It's one of

those things where I suppose her

0:19:290:19:36

editor probably asked her to be

horrible about the Winter Olympics.

0:19:360:19:39

Steph?

KFC, it's going on still,

still no chicken. Interesting twists

0:19:390:19:50

on it, Tower Hamlets police had to

put out a tweet yesterday to warn

0:19:500:19:55

people to stop calling them about

the KFC closures. How shocking is

0:19:550:19:59

that? People were ringing up to

complain about it. An MP was saying

0:19:590:20:06

he had received complaints from

angry customers as well. Still a lot

0:20:060:20:10

of that. I'll be talking later about

the latest on it, we will talk to

0:20:100:20:16

one of the unions. This is all to do

with their supply chain. I know Sean

0:20:160:20:21

was talking about it yesterday, we

have to look more about what's going

0:20:210:20:24

on and how they are going to solve

it because there are problems still

0:20:240:20:28

today that could continue for some

time.

Do you remember when school

0:20:280:20:32

got closed for various reasons?

Snow?

Inset day.

Can you imagine

0:20:320:20:39

school being closed because of a

mouse? A school was shot by its head

0:20:390:20:44

yesterday because mice had been

spotted. Parents got an e-mail

0:20:440:20:50

saying their health and safety

situation needed to be action

0:20:500:20:55

immediately.

Mice as opposed to

rats? That's interesting, I'm sure

0:20:550:21:00

we had loads of mice. There are mice

here. We could have a day of mag

0:21:000:21:07

tomorrow, couldn't we?

The mice

could present. -- day off.

We talk

0:21:070:21:15

about fad diets, just opted,

according to new research. The only

0:21:150:21:19

way to lose weight consistently is

to avoid processed convenience food

0:21:190:21:23

and eat less.

Easier said than done.

Quite logical. You need to go the

0:21:230:21:32

French technique, you have a plate

of food, eat half and if you are

0:21:320:21:36

still hungry, carry on.

There are

lots of books about the French way

0:21:360:21:43

of eating.

0:21:430:21:44

There's a call for a dog DNA

database to be established to help

0:21:440:21:48

catch animals suspected

of killing livestock.

0:21:480:21:52

The National Police Chiefs Council

also wants to be able

0:21:520:21:55

to search properties and confiscate

repeat offender dogs

0:21:550:21:57

from their owners.

0:21:570:21:58

Breakfast's John Maguire

is on a farm in North Wales and has

0:21:580:22:01

more detail for us this morning.

0:22:010:22:03

Good morning, good morning to

everyone at home. This young bull

0:22:030:22:10

calf, less than 24 hours old. He was

born yesterday afternoon. There are

0:22:100:22:15

cattle on this farm and a lot of

sheep, it's a traditional Welsh hill

0:22:150:22:20

farm with sheep out in the fields.

The situation is there's a serious

0:22:200:22:26

problem across the UK, it's a

crucial time of year with many of

0:22:260:22:31

the ewes in lamb. If a dog gets in

amongst them and chases them, it

0:22:310:22:37

might attack livestock, and you

might find a situation where the

0:22:370:22:42

lambs are lost because the ewes get

into distress. It's a huge problem

0:22:420:22:46

nationwide but one that now senior

police chiefs are saying it's time

0:22:460:22:50

to get a grip on.

0:22:500:22:53

He's only 16 but Alfie is already

learning about some of the harsh

0:22:530:22:57

realities of farming. Two of his

pedigree sheep were attacked by a

0:22:570:23:03

dog. The Harriet family graze their

sheep on the south downs and have

0:23:030:23:07

had several incidents.

It's just

that throat wound on a bit concerned

0:23:070:23:13

about still. It's very upsetting.

The trauma that the sheep have gone

0:23:130:23:17

through. As I say, we're not going

to quite know yet how much this has

0:23:170:23:22

impacted but it's not the first

incident we have had. We've had two,

0:23:220:23:27

three, four throughout the year.

Only yesterday I went up there and

0:23:270:23:30

there were more dogs of the league,

you ask them nicely to put their dog

0:23:300:23:35

on the lead, they say my dog isn't

like that, that's all you get and

0:23:350:23:39

they won't do it.

This video shows

the dog tracing the ewes before

0:23:390:23:44

biting them and days later it

returned to attack against Obika

0:23:440:23:47

it's all about taking DNA samples?

Absolutely.

John Carter is a

0:23:470:23:53

wildlife and rural officer for

Sussex Police who started using

0:23:530:23:56

forensic science to tackle the

problem.

We take the swap out, Rob

0:23:560:24:00

that around the bite wound of where

the dogs attacked the sheep, put it

0:24:000:24:04

back in the two, fill out the

details, send it to the lab and if

0:24:040:24:10

we have a dog we can match it to we

take another swap from the dog and

0:24:100:24:14

match the two samples.

Now the most

senior officers has published a

0:24:140:24:21

report calling for a DNA database of

dogs. It once a law to force owners

0:24:210:24:26

to use the fixed bleeds in livestock

areas and tougher sanctions,

0:24:260:24:32

possibly using Crown Courts, not

just magistrates.

We have put

0:24:320:24:37

various recommendations that you

would hope the legislations and

0:24:370:24:41

politicians would take heed of an

work with us to improve the

0:24:410:24:44

situation.

Although police chiefs

argue the current law is inadequate,

0:24:440:24:48

it allows farmers to shoot dogs that

are found attacking livestock so

0:24:480:24:53

reducing the huge number of

incidents would ease the stress and

0:24:530:24:57

suffering not just on farmers but

also on dog owners.

0:24:570:25:04

Five rural police forces did

research over the last four years

0:25:040:25:09

and found in 92% of cases dogs were

shot. Good morning, Gareth. We've

0:25:090:25:17

met you many times before, how much

of a problem is this?

Massive. We

0:25:170:25:23

get people leaving their dogs off

the lead and chasing sheep. It is

0:25:230:25:28

hard for us. I have had to shoot a

dog myself and it is not a nice

0:25:280:25:33

feeling. Taking that dog back to the

owner isn't something I ever wanted

0:25:330:25:38

to do. I'm a dog lover. People have

got to take this into their own

0:25:380:25:44

hands and respect the countryside

and understand that dogs need to be

0:25:440:25:47

on the lead and not running freely

around livestock.

What the police

0:25:470:25:54

officers also found is a lot of the

time dogs are escaping from gardens,

0:25:540:25:57

sensing isn't good enough, they are

getting out and coming back and even

0:25:570:26:00

the owners are realising this.

Lots

of people work shifts so they might

0:26:000:26:05

go off in the morning or in the

evening and leave little rover in

0:26:050:26:11

the garden, he might jump over the

fence and if there are sheep around,

0:26:110:26:15

it's natural for the dog to herd,

chase or kill, you can't blame the

0:26:150:26:19

dog. It's the responsibility of the

owner to make sure the dog is safe.

0:26:190:26:24

They could come home not knowing

anything has happened and the dog

0:26:240:26:28

could be sitting in the garden and

it could have killed five or six

0:26:280:26:31

sheep in that afternoon. They have

to take that responsibility.

Gareth,

0:26:310:26:36

thanks very much. We will see much

more of Gareth later and some

0:26:360:26:40

fantastic views because this is a

wonderful part of the world on the

0:26:400:26:44

North Wales coast, some incredible

vistas here. One last point, one of

0:26:440:26:48

the biggest incidents the police

forces found over the last four

0:26:480:26:51

years found one case where £20,000

worth of damage was done on one

0:26:510:26:56

farm. That's a big impact on a

farmer's livelihood.

Certainly is.

0:26:560:27:01

Thanks very much. An interesting

point from the farmer, I talk to a

0:27:010:27:06

friend yesterday who had a rescue

dog, had no idea of the history of

0:27:060:27:11

the dog, went out and about and

found the dog was vicious when it

0:27:110:27:14

came to other animals even though it

was lovely with children and other

0:27:140:27:17

people. It's difficult for dog

owners as well to know what the

0:27:170:27:22

personalities are like until they

have let them off the leash. Nobody

0:27:220:27:25

wants to see that.

0:27:250:27:29

We will get some news, travel and

weather wherever you're watching

0:27:290:27:33

this

0:27:330:30:52

That's all from me for now.

0:30:520:30:53

I'm back with the latest

from the BBC London newsroom

0:30:530:30:56

in half an hour.

0:30:560:30:57

Plenty more on our website

at the usual address.

0:30:570:31:00

Bye for now.

0:31:000:31:00

Hello, this is Breakfast,

with Dan Walker and Naga Munchetty.

0:31:030:31:06

We'll bring you the latest news

and sport in just a moment.

0:31:060:31:12

Coming up this morning: It's

the fast food chain that

0:31:120:31:15

claims its chicken is "finger

lickin' good", but KFC customers

0:31:150:31:18

can't get their hands on the goods

because of a shortage

0:31:180:31:21

of the main ingredient.

0:31:210:31:24

We'll speak to the union that warned

the Colonel that switching suppliers

0:31:240:31:28

would cause chaos.

0:31:280:31:28

Creating an atmosphere of dignity

at a difficult time.

0:31:280:31:31

We'll look at how special

'compassion' symbols in hospitals

0:31:310:31:34

are encouraging staff and visitors

to be more respectful to patients

0:31:340:31:39

and families facing the final

days of their lives.

0:31:390:31:43

Nicknamed 'The King of Bling'

by the tabloids for his lavish

0:31:430:31:47

lifestyle, we'll be joined

on the sofa by the former England

0:31:470:31:51

international Kieron Dyer,

who'll talk to us about his

0:31:510:31:54

searingly honest autobiography.

0:31:540:31:57

Good morning.

0:31:570:31:58

Here's a summary of today's main

stories from BBC News.

0:31:580:32:01

President Trump has signed an order

to ban bump-stock devices,

0:32:010:32:03

which were used by a gunman

who killed 58 Las Vegas

0:32:030:32:06

concert-goers last year.

0:32:060:32:08

Mr Trump says legislation that

outlaws equipment which turns

0:32:080:32:11

rifles into machine-guns

could be ready "very soon".

0:32:110:32:19

It comes after many students will

march in Tallahassee after 17

0:32:210:32:25

students were killed last week.

0:32:250:32:29

Just a few moments ago I signed a

memorandum directing the attorney

0:32:290:32:33

general the proposed regulations to

ban all devices that turn legal

0:32:330:32:37

weapons into. I expect that these

critical regulations will be

0:32:370:32:44

finalised very soon.

0:32:440:32:47

The bombardment of the rebel-held

Eastern Ghouta by the Syrian

0:32:470:32:50

government and its allies has

continued for a third day,

0:32:500:32:53

prompting the United Nations to warn

of the risk of a second Aleppo.

0:32:530:32:57

Reports suggest around 250 people

have died following two

0:32:570:32:59

days of attacks.

0:32:590:33:02

According to activists,

it's the worst violence in the area

0:33:020:33:05

near Damascus since 2013.

0:33:050:33:09

Speaking from one area,

one activist told the BBC this

0:33:090:33:12

is as bad as it's been.

0:33:120:33:13

Heavy drinking may be a major risk

factor for the early

0:33:130:33:16

onset of dementia.

0:33:160:33:17

Scientists in France looked

at 57,000 cases of dementia

0:33:170:33:20

in people under 65 and found

that a third could have

0:33:200:33:23

been caused by alcohol-related

brain damage.

0:33:230:33:24

Ben Ando reports.

0:33:240:33:30

Doctors already know heavy drinking

can lead to problems in the brain,

0:33:300:33:34

but this study focused on links

specifically to early onset

0:33:340:33:38

dementia, that means affecting

people younger than 65. Researchers

0:33:380:33:42

analysed the medical records of more

than 30 million people in France,

0:33:420:33:46

who spent time in hospital during

2008 and 2013. They published the

0:33:460:33:52

results in the Lancet health

journal. In that nationwide group

0:33:520:33:55

they found 1 million people with

dementia and of these 57,000 were

0:33:550:34:01

under 65. Among those people, heavy

drinking was linked to 39% or nearly

0:34:010:34:07

one in four cases. For this study

heavy drinking was defined as a

0:34:070:34:11

daily intake of more than four units

of alcohol for women and six for

0:34:110:34:15

men, that's the equivalent of three

pints of the year. Previous research

0:34:150:34:20

has suggested that drinking small

amounts, particularly of red wine,

0:34:200:34:24

can have a positive effect.

Those

studies really focus on modest

0:34:240:34:29

levels of alcohol intake, perhaps

one or two units a day, and perhaps

0:34:290:34:33

that has lulled people into a false

sense of security and perhaps we

0:34:330:34:37

haven't seen the other side of the

curb, where people have high levels

0:34:370:34:41

of alcohol consumption which can be

harmful to the brain in a variety of

0:34:410:34:45

ways. -- other side of the curve.

The Alzheimer's Society says it is

0:34:450:34:49

aware of the risks of heavy drinking

and its advice remains the same, try

0:34:490:34:53

to drink no more than 14 units of

alcohol were weak.

0:34:530:35:01

The High Court is looking at whether

police failed to investigate John

0:35:040:35:08

Worboys properly. Scotland Yard is

appealing against a previous

0:35:080:35:11

decision that they breached the

human rights of two women whose

0:35:110:35:15

destiny they failed to investigate

properly. The Metropolitan police

0:35:150:35:19

says it had procedures and practices

in place. If the ruling is upheld

0:35:190:35:22

this could be a land

0:35:220:35:24

nutcase for victims apostasy rights.

Liberal Democrat peer has resigned

0:35:240:35:28

from his role because of allegations

of sexual harassment. Lord Lester

0:35:280:35:32

will be investigated by the House of

Lords commission. He has denied the

0:35:320:35:37

allegations which have been

described as historical and he says

0:35:370:35:41

he will contest them vigorously.

0:35:410:35:44

More than 60 Brexit supporting

Conservative MPs have written to the

0:35:440:35:47

Prime Minister, setting out what

they believe written should achieve

0:35:470:35:50

from the deal with Brussels. MPs

insist that Britain should be free

0:35:500:35:56

to negotiate trade deals with other

countries as soon as it leaves the

0:35:560:36:01

EU. Senior ministers will meet

tomorrow to discuss what the

0:36:010:36:03

government wants from the final

Brexit deal.

0:36:030:36:08

The awards season in full swing.

0:36:080:36:09

Tonight it's the turn of the music

industry's BRIT Awards,

0:36:090:36:12

with the great and the good

of the pop world hoping

0:36:120:36:15

to bag a trophy.

0:36:150:36:22

Dua Lipa is leading the way

with the highest number

0:36:220:36:24

of nominations ever given

to a female artist in one year.

0:36:240:36:30

Seven in total.

0:36:300:36:33

The 22-year-old had a number one

with New Rules and is heading

0:36:330:36:36

towards 200,000 sales of her debut.

0:36:360:36:40

You will hear a full preview of the

BRIT Awards later. And one thing you

0:36:400:36:46

mention is that Liam Gallagher is a

bit annoyed because he hasn't been

0:36:460:36:51

asked to perform.

I did an interview with him two

0:36:510:36:58

years ago and we have to have a

pre-recorded and the editing

0:36:580:37:02

required...

Was a substantial?

0:37:020:37:06

Halfway through I said, if you want

all of this to get out, you have to

0:37:060:37:11

reduce your swearing little bit

because it is really hard to edit in

0:37:110:37:14

between.

He told me to go somewhere. In the

0:37:140:37:18

nicest possible way... I'm sure.

I will tell you who is going nowhere

0:37:180:37:24

at the moment, the women's curling

team!

0:37:240:37:28

They are doing well? Into the

semifinals.

0:37:280:37:30

And what about the men?

We are trying to join them. I'm just

0:37:300:37:34

having a look. We will dip into live

pictures.

0:37:340:37:39

I'm getting ahead of myself! It's

fine. What they beat the reigning

0:37:390:37:45

champions, the Olympic champions,

Canada, the quite a big deal. They

0:37:450:37:50

had to come from behind, so quite a

dramatic match, but they are into

0:37:500:37:54

the semifinals. Canada led for most

of the contest.

0:37:540:38:00

Eve Muirhead and co were behind

going into the final end but pulled

0:38:000:38:04

it out of the bag to win 6-5.

0:38:040:38:06

It will be the first time that

Canada's women weren't win a medal.

0:38:060:38:13

The men are going for a win in the

semifinals as well. They are playing

0:38:130:38:20

in the semifinals against the US and

after five ends the Americans lead

0:38:200:38:27

5-4.

0:38:270:38:30

And there was great news

for Billy Morgan overnight in "big

0:38:300:38:33

air" - pretty obvious why it's

called that when you look at this.

0:38:330:38:37

The Briton is in Saturday's final

after taking the final qualification

0:38:370:38:40

spot in his heat.

0:38:400:38:41

Jamie Nicholls and Rowan Coultas

missed out though.

0:38:410:38:43

But Lindsey Vonn, the most

successful female downhill skier

0:38:430:38:45

in history, couldn't take the gold

in what looks like her final Olympic

0:38:450:38:49

Games.

0:38:490:38:50

The American earned bronze,

with Italy's Sofia Goggia

0:38:500:38:52

taking top spot.

0:38:520:38:53

Elise Christie's hopes of a medal

at the 2018 Winter Olympics are over

0:38:530:39:01

after she was disqualified in her

1,000m short track heat yesterday.

0:39:010:39:04

She's had an awful games

with crashes, injury and then

0:39:040:39:06

that disqualification yesterday.

0:39:060:39:14

The 27-year-old appeared to be

in pain at times because of an ankle

0:39:160:39:19

injury sustained in a crash

in the 1500 metres on Saturday.

0:39:190:39:25

I worked so hard to come back from

this injury. I think 1000 people

0:39:250:39:29

wouldn't have skated with my ankle

the way it was. I could barely bend

0:39:290:39:35

my knee. It's just... The only thing

I can say is I promise Britain I

0:39:350:39:40

will fight back from this and I will

come back for Beijing. And hopefully

0:39:400:39:45

I can do Britain proud then.

0:39:450:39:49

It was a case of so near but so far

for Chelsea in the Champions League,

0:39:490:39:53

with Lionel Messi denying them

a great win at Stamford Bridge.

0:39:530:40:00

Chelsea had the better of the

chances and eventually took the lead

0:40:000:40:04

through Willian.

0:40:040:40:06

But the Spanish giants came

on strong and Messi capitalised

0:40:060:40:11

on a Chelsea error to make it 1-1

and give Barcelona an important away

0:40:110:40:15

goal going into the second leg.

0:40:150:40:16

One mistake. Art as you know very

well against these types of players,

0:40:160:40:32

Lionel Messi and Louis Suarez, if

you make a mistake you pay.

0:40:320:40:36

England women head coach

Phil Neville has named

0:40:360:40:38

Chelsea's Anita Asante in his first

squad for next month's

0:40:380:40:40

SheBelieves Cup

in the United States.

0:40:400:40:42

Asante, who was last called up

in 2015, was one of several players

0:40:420:40:50

who said they were poorly treated

by previous boss Mark Sampson.

0:40:500:40:53

Injured skipper Steph Houghton has

also been named in the squad.

0:40:530:40:56

And, finally, lots of you have been

posting videos of yourselves giving

0:40:560:40:59

curling a go at home,

but you can always go

0:40:590:41:02

a little further.

0:41:020:41:03

Here's someone that has

taken their obsession with the Games

0:41:030:41:06

to a new level.

0:41:060:41:08

Personal trainer Frank has recreated

almost every Winter Olympic sport

0:41:080:41:10

in his gym and certainly deserves

a gold medal for his efforts.

0:41:100:41:17

Can you name them?

That was short track speed skating.

0:41:170:41:22

A bit of boarding and a bit of

curling.

0:41:220:41:27

Gold, silver or bronze for him?

No place on the podium, I'm afraid.

0:41:270:41:33

He has probably built a podium!

See you later.

0:41:330:41:39

Don't forget, Nick will have the

weather in about five minutes.

0:41:390:41:54

Social media and smart

phones go hand in hand,

0:41:540:41:56

as 95% of 15-year-olds in the UK use

digital platforms before

0:41:560:42:00

or after school,

0:42:000:42:01

that's according to

the Education Policy Institute.

0:42:010:42:02

Norman Lamb is the chair

of the Science and Technology

0:42:020:42:05

Committee, he joins us

now from Westminster.

0:42:050:42:07

Thank you for your time this

morning. Good morning. An enquiry.

0:42:070:42:11

Surely we know that if 95% of

children are using social media

0:42:110:42:18

sites, shouldn't it be time to take

action rather than look into what

0:42:180:42:21

needs to be done in order to take

action?

One of the good things about

0:42:210:42:26

this committee is we look at the

evidence and we do have some

0:42:260:42:29

evidence but there are also some

gaps and I think what's clear is

0:42:290:42:33

we've all gone through a revolution

over the last 15 years. Our lives

0:42:330:42:38

have changed dramatically.

Children's lives have changed,

0:42:380:42:43

compared to what earlier generations

went through in terms of the

0:42:430:42:46

intensity of use of mobile phones,

smart phones, social media. We need

0:42:460:42:52

to understand what the effects of

that are, positive and negative,

0:42:520:42:56

because it's important not just

think of this as a problem. And of

0:42:560:43:00

course for many young people they

are now getting access to help with

0:43:000:43:03

mental health problems, for example,

online. Nearly 80% of children and

0:43:030:43:09

young people contact ChildLine

online. So there are beneficial

0:43:090:43:15

effects as well is harmful effect

is, but we need to understand all of

0:43:150:43:19

this and I think we need to make

sure that the government is doing

0:43:190:43:23

all it should be doing and indeed

all the companies, the Facebooks of

0:43:230:43:29

this world, up protecting children.

You mentioned there are positives,

0:43:290:43:36

but let's focus for a moment on the

negatives. You mentioned Facebook.

0:43:360:43:39

There is a policy of allowing those

of the aged 13 and above to go

0:43:390:43:46

online, but there are doubts about

how effectively this is policed.

0:43:460:43:50

Whose fault is it if there is a

child who was adopted to social

0:43:500:43:54

media he doesn't know the limits, or

is exposed to attention, sexual

0:43:540:43:59

predatory attention, that they

shouldn't have to be exposed to

0:43:590:44:03

predatory attention, that they

shouldn't have to be exposed to?

You

0:44:030:44:06

have highlighted one of the issues

we will be looking at. It was found

0:44:060:44:12

that over one third, about 37%, of

15 new roles are extreme in users,

0:44:120:44:17

in other words using... Been online

for more than six hours a day, and

0:44:170:44:24

associated with that are mental

health problems, increased risk of

0:44:240:44:28

harm, the whole issue of grooming.

So the question then is what more

0:44:280:44:33

could companies like Facebook be

doing to protect children? What

0:44:330:44:37

should government be doing in terms

of setting the regulatory framework?

0:44:370:44:41

These are the kinds of things we

will be looking at and incidentally

0:44:410:44:45

we are very keen to hear from young

people, as well as the experts, in

0:44:450:44:50

understanding exactly what's going

on over there.

You are father of

0:44:500:44:53

two.

You've been doing your

research!

We have been known to do

0:44:530:44:59

it! Children slightly older than

teenage age, what you know how

0:44:590:45:05

difficult it can be to communicate

your concerns effectively to a child

0:45:050:45:09

who thinks they know best and that

you don't understand their world.

0:45:090:45:12

This is what happening a lot of the

time when parents try to police or

0:45:120:45:17

at least understand what they are

seeing on social media and

0:45:170:45:21

understand the different world they

are in.

0:45:210:45:26

I totally agree, lots of families,

including ours, have struggled with

0:45:260:45:30

this, knowing where to set

boundaries. Remember also that

0:45:300:45:35

parents aren't always perfect in

terms of their use of social media

0:45:350:45:42

and indeed their use of smart

phones. Sometimes you see people

0:45:420:45:46

walking down the street, the parent

on the smart phone with two small

0:45:460:45:49

children by their side not really

concentrating much on the children.

0:45:490:45:54

There's issues for all of us here.

It's a fascinating area. As I say,

0:45:540:45:59

the world has changed completely in

the space of not much more than a

0:45:590:46:03

decade. The idea that this

revolution has happened without it

0:46:030:46:07

having an effect, potentially

positive and negative, is fanciful,

0:46:070:46:13

so let's try and understand it

better.

Norman Lamb, chair of the

0:46:130:46:17

science and technology committee,

thanks for your time.

Thanks very

0:46:170:46:21

much.

Let us know what you think of

that.

0:46:210:46:23

You can find us on social media if

you want to know about that.

0:46:230:46:28

Here's Nick with a look

at this morning's weather.

0:46:280:46:33

Some gorgeous blue skies over

London, is that what London is

0:46:330:46:37

seeing this morning?

0:46:370:46:38

Will be a few brighter spells for

the rest of the UK as well, -- there

0:46:390:46:44

will be. Lots of fine and dry

weather to come, not just today but

0:46:440:46:48

for the rest of the week into the

weekend. Turning colder but next

0:46:480:46:52

week is where in the proper cold air

comes in, a gradual step down each

0:46:520:46:56

day in terms of the temperatures.

Some cloud around to start the day,

0:46:560:47:02

especially England and Wales, clear

skies in Scotland with frost, patchy

0:47:020:47:06

fog in Northern Ireland and here's

the cloud from the north-east into

0:47:060:47:09

England and Wales, Western Candice

of England and Wales seeing sunshine

0:47:090:47:14

today, maybe into Kent, the slight

chance of a shower and then thicker

0:47:140:47:19

cloud at times in the Midlands and

northern England, maybe a bit of

0:47:190:47:22

drizzle, that's how we start.

Northern Ireland, a few fog patches,

0:47:220:47:26

some slow to clear, sunny spells in

Scotland, a few fog patches as well

0:47:260:47:31

but lots of fine dry weather on the

way with temperatures rooted into

0:47:310:47:34

single figures. Around 6-9, only

getting lower. A steady slow process

0:47:340:47:40

until the real cold air arrives into

next week. Overnight a lot of the

0:47:400:47:44

cloud we've had will tend to clear,

allowing more clear skies. You can

0:47:440:47:49

see the land, that's where it's

indicating it will be clear, more

0:47:490:47:53

widespread frost tonight going into

tomorrow morning. Temperatures at or

0:47:530:47:56

a few degrees below freezing. Again

fog patches around here and there

0:47:560:48:01

into tomorrow that could be slow to

clear, barely a breath of wind for

0:48:010:48:05

most, tomorrow, the breeze, see the

arrows, picks up a bit for Northern

0:48:050:48:09

Ireland into western Scotland, some

cloud may be producing a light

0:48:090:48:13

shower, elsewhere, variable cloud,

sunny spells on a mainly dry day but

0:48:130:48:17

where you see eight or nine today,

tomorrow the temperatures come down

0:48:170:48:21

a further degree. Looking at Friday,

the air coming in from the

0:48:210:48:25

north-east more from the east

south-east location where we would

0:48:250:48:28

expect dry air coming in, less

cloud, more sunshine. A bit breezy

0:48:280:48:35

to the south and west of the UK,

most places are dry and again single

0:48:350:48:39

figure temperatures. I want to show

you the setup for the weekend, high

0:48:390:48:43

pressure from Scandinavia, the flow

of air around that well into next

0:48:430:48:46

week which comes in from the

easterly direction, a cold

0:48:460:48:50

direction, and the breeze picks up a

bit more as well. Lot of sunshine

0:48:500:48:54

this weekend but the thing to

notice, four locations here, but for

0:48:540:48:58

the whole of the country,

temperatures going down, the breeze

0:48:580:49:01

picking up, feeling colder but again

the proper cold air is next week.

0:49:010:49:07

Yes, but the sunshine is there so it

makes it all better.

Lots of blue

0:49:070:49:12

sky days weekend.

As soon as I hear

the word son I go all disease.

She

0:49:120:49:18

likes a bit of sunny weather.

I do

-- all busy. -- Wisniewski.

0:49:180:49:25

Thousands of small firms were

mistreated by Royal Bank Scotland

0:49:250:49:27

during the financial crisis,

that's according to a report

0:49:270:49:30

released by MPs.

0:49:300:49:31

Steph's been looking

at what happened.

0:49:310:49:32

I need to take you back about ten or

15 years to when this began. The

0:49:320:49:37

height of the financial crisis.

0:49:370:49:38

Lots of businesses

were struggling to pay

0:49:380:49:41

back their debts.

0:49:410:49:41

Royal Bank of Scotland

set up a unit called

0:49:410:49:44

the Global Restructuring Group,

so when one of their business

0:49:440:49:46

customers was struggling they would

be put through to this unit.

0:49:460:49:49

It was supposed to be an expert

service that could save a business,

0:49:490:49:53

but a report by the financial

regulator found that this unit

0:49:530:49:56

actually harmed a lot

of the businesses it was supposed

0:49:560:49:59

to help, with made-up fees,

high interest rates

0:49:590:50:01

and taking over

property in some cases.

0:50:010:50:03

Royal Bank of Scotland

said it was deeply sorry

0:50:030:50:05

for its treatment of

businesses in the GRG.

0:50:050:50:12

At its peak the unit was handling

around 16,000 businesses.

0:50:120:50:15

One of them was small

business owner Andi Gibbs.

0:50:150:50:21

Good morning to you, Andi. Tell us

about your business, it was an

0:50:210:50:26

architecture firm?

It was. I had

started a community festival in

0:50:260:50:32

Norwich and wanted after six years

to have a permanent base to create

0:50:320:50:37

creative industries, working

together and expanding their skills

0:50:370:50:41

base and sharing. Part of my

business was that accommodation, an

0:50:410:50:46

architectural practice which was

award-winning, plus a construction

0:50:460:50:50

company.

You went to Royal Bank of

Scotland to borrow money? Do more to

0:50:500:50:55

the project, it wasn't because you

were struggling, you went to expand?

0:50:550:50:58

Yes, we were in the final stages of

a four or five year building

0:50:580:51:03

project. We had a waiting list for

tenants to come into the property

0:51:030:51:07

because of its notoriety. This was

increased funding NatWest and they

0:51:070:51:12

suggested that my three accounts

should go to Royal Bank of Scotland.

0:51:120:51:17

You got the loan from Royal Bank of

Scotland and then what happened,

0:51:170:51:21

when did the trouble start?

The

easiest thing is to use an analogy.

0:51:210:51:26

If you can imagine that Royal Bank

of Scotland are a kind of swamp of

0:51:260:51:31

quicksand, Royal Bank of Scotland

offered the loan but structured onto

0:51:310:51:36

it and interest rate hedging product

which effectively was something they

0:51:360:51:40

sold to me which was a loss-making

product -- an interest rate. Because

0:51:400:51:46

the interest rates were going

down... Starting to go down that

0:51:460:51:53

effectively built in what was a

credit line that was unknown to me

0:51:530:51:58

and many customers. For a loan of

£1.3 million, there was a credit

0:51:580:52:05

line unknown of £1.5 million.

This

push you into financial difficulty

0:52:050:52:11

and that's when Royal Bank of

Scotland moved you into this GI G --

0:52:110:52:16

push you.

What pushed many

businesses was simply we were

0:52:160:52:20

complaining of what this interest

rate hedging product was doing --

0:52:200:52:24

pushed you -- GRG.

What happened?

You ended up losing the business?

0:52:240:52:30

Yes.

0:52:300:52:36

Yes. We transferred to GRG and we

had a situation where there was over

0:52:360:52:42

bullying, stopping direct payments,

stopping my professional insurance,

0:52:420:52:47

taking my lifeline away from

providing for my family. In the end

0:52:470:52:52

they fire sold the whole property,

or properties, 11 in total in

0:52:520:52:59

Norwich and destroyed the project.

That obviously hit you really hard?

0:52:590:53:03

It was. Out of it I had three major

operations, six hours, broken

0:53:030:53:10

marriage and a breakdown.

And OK

now?

-- and you're OK now? Am I? I

0:53:100:53:20

have a successful architecture

practice in Norwich. We will be OK

0:53:200:53:25

when we get justice, and that's what

we're fighting for. They had a

0:53:250:53:30

company called West Register where

they would try to offer you more

0:53:300:53:35

money, which I turned down with a

15% stake. When they said they

0:53:350:53:41

couldn't afford 1.3 million, they

offered £1.71 million as a loan.

0:53:410:53:46

There's hidden and sharing of assets

to basically pull the guillotine

0:53:460:53:50

down on the business.

You're part of

this group trying to fight it?

SMP

0:53:500:53:58

Alliance and whistleblowers are all

working together.

Good luck with

0:53:580:54:00

that. Thanks for your time, Andi, a

personal story so thanks for telling

0:54:000:54:05

the about it. In response Royal Bank

of Scotland have said they saw no

0:54:050:54:11

evidence... The report done by the

FCA saw no evidence of inappropriate

0:54:110:54:15

transfer to GRG and all companies

transferred were in financial

0:54:150:54:19

difficulty. They had the bank worked

with Andi to help him find a way to

0:54:190:54:23

meet his repayment obligations.

That's it from me for now on this.

0:54:230:54:28

Amazing how this hits home, a good

example. Thank you very much to both

0:54:280:54:32

of you.

0:54:320:54:34

For all of us on Breakfast the term

lie-in sounds like bliss,

0:54:340:54:37

but now a team of university sleep

experts are testing whether a later

0:54:370:54:41

school start time could benefit

pupils and their performance.

0:54:410:54:43

Research already suggests

that teenagers don't

0:54:430:54:45

get enough sleep.

0:54:450:54:46

And on BBC Two tonight,

Trust Me I'm a Doctor

0:54:460:54:49

will look at why teenagers'

bodyclocks are programmed to stay up

0:54:490:54:52

later than everyone else's.

0:54:520:54:53

Let's take a look.

0:54:530:54:58

Let's talk to Guy Holloway,

headmaster of Hampton Court House

0:54:580:55:01

School and David Ray,

a Professor of medicine

0:55:010:55:03

and endocrinology at

the University of Manchester.

0:55:030:55:07

Good morning to you. Guy, let's

start with you, what are you doing,

0:55:070:55:15

what time do the pupils turn up,

when do they go home and what

0:55:150:55:19

benefits have you seen?

Our students

have exactly the same amount of

0:55:190:55:24

tuition as they would if they were

starting at a traditional early

0:55:240:55:27

time. Our lessons start at 1pm and

they work until 7pm.

They turn up at

0:55:270:55:35

what time?

Well, many of the

students will turn up mid-morning,

0:55:350:55:41

but the actual heavy duty work, the

A-level studies, begin at 1pm.

0:55:410:55:47

Teachers have said what in terms of

how they're responding, how well the

0:55:470:55:52

students are learning and how easy

if it is at all to teach them?

The

0:55:520:55:58

feedback has been extraordinary. In

fact our staff talk about a golden

0:55:580:56:02

period, the period between 4pm and

7pm where it's reported that is

0:56:020:56:07

where the best concentration and the

best learning takes place. The fact

0:56:070:56:13

is we are in society accustomed to

what we are used to. Why is it that

0:56:130:56:18

up and down the country primary

school children come happily into

0:56:180:56:22

school and suddenly... I see it all

the time on the way to work, you see

0:56:220:56:26

teenagers making their way to the

bus stop and frankly they are

0:56:260:56:30

walking like zombies. It looks like

a scene from Shaun of the Dead, but

0:56:300:56:36

we've become accustomed to it and we

accept that as normal. There's

0:56:360:56:40

something profoundly wrong about

asking our teenagers to get up early

0:56:400:56:44

in the morning. They can do it, just

as we can up early to catch a 6am

0:56:440:56:50

flight, but the fact is it's

unnatural. The neuroscientific

0:56:500:56:56

community is doing this country's

teenagers a great service by

0:56:560:57:00

suggesting that what we are doing is

supported by the research.

A

0:57:000:57:06

passionate defence of teenagers

getting up later, lots of people

0:57:060:57:10

getting in contact with the

programme as well, talking about the

0:57:100:57:14

fact they recognise this in their

own teenagers. Is it backed by

0:57:140:57:17

research?

Yes, absolutely. Chromo

type refers to whether someone is

0:57:170:57:24

more of a morning person or an

evening person and we all recognise

0:57:240:57:28

and remember ourselves that during

teenage years we all shift very much

0:57:280:57:32

later. Boys even later than girls

during teenage years and for the

0:57:320:57:36

rest of our lives we get earlier and

earlier and earlier. The problem

0:57:360:57:41

with that is even telling teenagers

that they should go to bed at 10pm

0:57:410:57:45

to get up at 7am, if they can't get

to sleep at 10pm, they are lying in

0:57:450:57:51

bed, they are restless and trying to

get them up early in the morning is

0:57:510:57:55

very hard.

And he makes a point that

many are making, wouldn't teens go

0:57:550:58:00

to sleep later knowing they get a

lie in in the morning, therefore

0:58:000:58:04

negating the effect of a later start

to a school day?

That's interesting.

0:58:040:58:08

There's a lot of theoretical

research suggesting this late chromo

0:58:080:58:13

type in teenage years is a real

phenomenon. It's not something easy

0:58:130:58:17

to fight against. Real-life

experiments like starting school

0:58:170:58:21

later is what we need to see in real

life if this really helps.

Time is

0:58:210:58:26

tight but when would you see the

benefits of this, how quickly could

0:58:260:58:29

you see positive change?

Very

quickly, very quickly. Within a day

0:58:290:58:34

or two, it is as quick as that.

Essentially the practical issue

0:58:340:58:40

would be if teenagers get used to

starting school and starting work at

0:58:400:58:44

1pm, then the potential is they will

go to sleep at 2am or 3am and then

0:58:440:58:50

they will be out of phase with the

rest of their family and if exams

0:58:500:58:54

when they come around in the summer

start at 9am then it will be like

0:58:540:58:59

trying to do an exam in the middle

of the night so there are practical

0:58:590:59:03

knock-on effects.

David, good to

talk to you and Guy Holloway, thank

0:59:030:59:07

you very much as well. We will be

hearing from Guy later.

0:59:070:59:13

Trust Me I'm a Doctor

is on BBC Two tonight at 8:30pm.

0:59:130:59:17

Time now to get the news,

travel and weather where you are.

0:59:171:02:39

That's all from me for now.

1:02:391:02:40

I'm back with the latest

from the BBC London newsroom

1:02:401:02:43

in half an hour.

1:02:431:02:44

Plenty more on our website

at the usual address.

1:02:441:02:47

Bye for now.

1:02:471:02:47

Hello, this is Breakfast,

with Dan Walker and Naga Munchetty.

1:02:471:02:50

A move on gun control policy

in the United States.

1:02:501:02:53

President Trump indicates he's

willing to make a change.

1:02:531:02:55

As students prepare to march

in the state capital

1:02:551:02:58

after last week's school shooting,

he says he'd support a ban

1:02:581:03:01

on devices which turn

rifles into machine-guns.

1:03:011:03:04

Good morning, it's

Wednesday 21st February.

1:03:161:03:17

Also this morning:

1:03:171:03:25

Warnings of a humanitarian disaster

in Syria where hundreds of people

1:03:271:03:30

have died after days of bombing.

1:03:301:03:31

We look at how early onset

dementia could be linked

1:03:311:03:34

to regular heavy drinking.

1:03:341:03:37

Good morning.

1:03:371:03:43

We are in north Wales, 1000 feet

above the Menai Straits. This is a

1:03:431:03:48

crucial

1:03:481:03:48

above the Menai Straits. This is a

crucial time of year for British

1:03:481:03:50

livestock farmers, especially for

sheep farmers and now senior police

1:03:501:03:55

officers say it is time to get a

grip on the problem of dog attacks

1:03:551:03:59

on livestock.

1:03:591:04:02

KFC says many of its restaurants

could be closed for the rest of the

1:04:021:04:07

week as the chain enters another day

of supply problems. We will speak to

1:04:071:04:11

a worker's union just before eight

a.m..

1:04:111:04:16

And in the sport here

in Pyeongchang, there was great news

1:04:161:04:19

for Britain's curlers overnight.

1:04:191:04:21

And can the men join

the women in the semi-finals?

1:04:211:04:23

I'll bring you the latest

on all that and everything else,

1:04:231:04:26

in half an hour.

1:04:261:04:27

And Nick has the weather.

1:04:271:04:29

Good morning. Frosty in Scotland and

parts of Northern Ireland. Sunny

1:04:291:04:32

spells to come for England and

Wales. We have the forecast for the

1:04:321:04:35

rest of the week into the weekend as

it turns cold.

1:04:351:04:38

Good morning.

1:04:381:04:39

First, our main story.

1:04:391:04:40

President Trump has suggested

he could be willing to make some

1:04:401:04:43

changes on gun control laws,

following the school shooting

1:04:431:04:45

in Florida last week.

1:04:451:04:47

He has signed an order to ban

bump-stock devices which turn

1:04:471:04:50

rifles into machine-guns.

1:04:501:04:51

They were used by a gunman

who killed 58 Las Vegas

1:04:511:04:54

last year.

1:04:541:04:55

Mr Trump says legislation

could be ready "very soon".

1:04:551:04:58

Our North America correspondent

David Willis reports.

1:04:581:05:02

We don't know where the shooter is!

1:05:021:05:08

The scenes are nothing new here,

but last week's high school shooting

1:05:081:05:11

in Florida has galvanised the debate

on gun control in America in a way

1:05:111:05:15

few here can remember.

1:05:151:05:18

Students who survived

an attack which killed 17

1:05:181:05:20

of their teachers and classmates are

speaking out fluidly and forcefully.

1:05:201:05:27

Do not let people try

to get under your skin!

1:05:271:05:31

Their youthful voices

resonating where those of long

1:05:311:05:35

serving politicians have

largely fallen flat.

1:05:351:05:38

We are what's bringing the change.

1:05:381:05:41

We're going to keep talking.

1:05:411:05:42

We're going to keep pushing

until something is done,

1:05:421:05:46

because people are dying and this

can't happen any more.

1:05:461:05:49

Reflecting the national

mood of grief and anger

1:05:491:05:51

in the wake of last week's shooting,

President Trump, who supports gun

1:05:511:05:54

ownership, offered a concession -

a ban on bump-stock devices,

1:05:541:05:58

used to devastating effect

in the Las Vegas massacre

1:05:581:06:00

last year.

1:06:001:06:05

I signed a memorandum directing

the attorney general to proposed

1:06:051:06:09

regulations to ban all

devices that turn legal

1:06:091:06:11

weapons into machine-guns.

1:06:111:06:15

Students arriving for a rally later

today in the Florida state capital

1:06:151:06:19

Tallahassee say that's not enough.

1:06:191:06:21

Some are heading to Washington

at the invitation of the White House

1:06:211:06:25

to press the case for

comprehensive gun reforms

1:06:251:06:27

with the President himself.

1:06:271:06:31

Some here are hailing

it a turning point

1:06:311:06:36

in the acrimonious debate

about guns, but America has been

1:06:361:06:39

here so many times before.

1:06:391:06:47

And we'll be speaking to one

of the pupils from the Florida

1:06:481:06:51

school where 17 people were killed

last week as he prepares to march

1:06:511:06:55

in Tallahassee later today.

1:06:551:06:56

That's at 7:10am.

1:06:561:06:57

The bombardment of the rebel-held

Eastern Ghouta by the Syrian

1:06:571:06:59

government and its allies has

continued for a third day,

1:06:591:07:02

prompting the United Nations to warn

of the risk of a second Aleppo.

1:07:021:07:06

Reports suggest around 250 people

have died following two

1:07:061:07:08

days of attacks.

1:07:081:07:09

According to activists,

it is the worst violence in the area

1:07:091:07:12

near Damascus since 2013.

1:07:121:07:13

Speaking from the area,

one activist told the BBC this

1:07:131:07:17

is as bad as it's been.

1:07:171:07:17

The mortars are dropping

on us like rain.

1:07:171:07:20

There is nowhere to hide from this

nightmare in Eastern Ghouta.

1:07:201:07:27

A landmark ruling is being reviewed

by the Supreme Court

1:07:271:07:29

over whether police are accountable

for their failure to investigate

1:07:291:07:32

victim's allegations of the black

cab rapist John Worboys.

1:07:321:07:35

Scotland Yard is appealing

against a previous decision

1:07:351:07:37

that they breached the human rights

of two women whose testimony

1:07:371:07:40

they failed to investigate properly.

1:07:401:07:42

The Metropolitan Police as it has

practices and procedures in place.

1:07:421:07:45

If the ruling is upheld this could

be a landmark case for victims

1:07:451:07:49

rights.

1:07:491:07:49

The family of a missing 29-year-old

man have travelled to Israel to take

1:07:491:07:53

part in a press conference

later this morning, in the hope

1:07:531:07:56

of raising awareness

of his disappearance.

1:07:561:07:57

Oliver McAfee from County Down

in Northern Ireland,

1:07:571:08:00

was last seen three months ago,

while cycling near Mitzpe Ramon.

1:08:001:08:03

Our Middle East correspondent

Tom Bateman joins us

1:08:031:08:05

from our Jerusalem newsroom.

1:08:051:08:12

What is happening? I understand some

of the gentleman's belongings have

1:08:121:08:15

been found?

That's right. Police

have said they found a number of

1:08:151:08:21

items belonging to Oliver McAfee. He

was cycling through Europe and had

1:08:211:08:26

made a nearly 9000 mile journey

before coming to northern Israel. He

1:08:261:08:32

was cycling on a trail and stop in

Jerusalem and he then disappeared in

1:08:321:08:38

the desert in the south of Israel.

As you say, police say they found

1:08:381:08:42

items and they also say they found

piles of stones and words written on

1:08:421:08:47

pieces of paper from the Bible. His

family have travelled here and going

1:08:471:08:54

to hold a press conference at the

British embassy in Tel Aviv this

1:08:541:08:56

morning. They say they want to

revitalise this investigation. A

1:08:561:09:01

want to revitalise the search. But

they have said that given that 90

1:09:011:09:06

days or so have passed since any

confirmed sighting of Oliver McAfee,

1:09:061:09:12

the lack of a breakthrough is taking

its toll.

Thanks for the moment.

1:09:121:09:16

Heavy drinking may be a major risk

factor for the early

1:09:161:09:19

onset of dementia.

1:09:191:09:20

Scientists in France looked

at 57,000 cases of dementia

1:09:201:09:23

in people under 65 and found

that a third could have

1:09:231:09:26

been caused by alcohol-related

brain damage.

1:09:261:09:29

Ben Ando reports.

1:09:291:09:32

Doctors already know heavy drinking

can lead to problems in the brain,

1:09:321:09:37

but this study focused on links

specifically to early onset

1:09:371:09:40

dementia, that means affecting

people younger than 65.

1:09:401:09:44

Researchers analysed the medical

records of more than 30 million

1:09:441:09:47

people in France,

1:09:471:09:50

who'd spent time in hospital

during 2008 and 2013.

1:09:501:09:56

They published the results

in the Lancet health journal.

1:09:561:09:58

In that nationwide group they found

1 million people with dementia

1:09:581:10:01

and of these 57,000 were under 65.

1:10:011:10:05

Among those people, heavy drinking

was linked to 39% or nearly

1:10:051:10:08

one in four cases.

1:10:081:10:12

For this study, heavy drinking

was defined as a daily intake

1:10:121:10:17

of more than four units of alcohol

for women

1:10:171:10:20

and six for men,

1:10:201:10:21

that's the equivalent

of three pints of beer.

1:10:211:10:23

Previous research has

suggested that drinking small

1:10:231:10:25

amounts, particularly of red wine,

can have a positive effect.

1:10:251:10:30

Those studies really focus on very

modest levels of alcohol intake,

1:10:301:10:36

perhaps one or two units a day,

and perhaps that has lulled us

1:10:361:10:39

into a false sense of security

and perhaps we haven't seen

1:10:391:10:42

the other side of the curve,

where people have higher levels

1:10:421:10:46

of alcohol consumption that can be

harmful to the brain

1:10:461:10:48

in a variety of ways.

1:10:481:10:51

The Alzheimer's Society says it's

aware of the risks of heavy

1:10:511:10:54

drinking and its advice remains

the same for everyone -

1:10:541:10:57

try to drink no more than 14 units

of alcohol per week.

1:10:571:11:03

More than 60 Brexit-supporting

Conservative MPs have written

1:11:031:11:05

to the Prime Minister,

setting out what they believe

1:11:051:11:08

Britain should achieve

from a deal with Brussels.

1:11:081:11:12

The MPs, from the European Research

Group of Tory backbenchers,

1:11:121:11:15

insist that Britain should be free

to negotiate trade deals with other

1:11:151:11:18

countries, as soon

as it leaves the EU.

1:11:181:11:20

Senior ministers will meet tomorrow

to discuss what the government wants

1:11:201:11:23

from the final Brexit deal.

1:11:231:11:27

The awards season is in full swing

and tonight it's the turn

1:11:271:11:30

of the music industry to celebrate

with the BRIT Awards.

1:11:301:11:33

22-year-old Londoner

Dua Lipa leads the way

1:11:331:11:37

with five nominations,

while eyes will also be

1:11:371:11:39

on Ed Sheeran after his

record breaking year.

1:11:391:11:42

Our entertainment correspondent

Colin Paterson reports.

1:11:421:11:47

Dua Lipa's five BRIT nominations

are the most ever in one year

1:11:471:11:50

by a female artist.

1:11:501:11:54

The 22-year-old Londoner had

a number one with New Rules

1:11:541:12:00

and is heading towards 200,000

sales of her debut.

1:12:001:12:02

At the moment she is bigger

than Beyonce, Taylor

1:12:021:12:06

Swift, Rihanna and she has

what all of those huge

1:12:061:12:10

American artists has.

1:12:101:12:11

She's not workshy, she'll turn up

and do the interviews and promos

1:12:111:12:15

and she'll spend 24 hours doing

the video, and extreme focus 24/7.

1:12:151:12:21

However, the night's biggest award,

Album of the Year, is expected to go

1:12:261:12:29

to Ed Sheeran's Divide.

1:12:291:12:32

It was number one for a third

of last year and it would be a major

1:12:321:12:36

shock if he did not win.

1:12:361:12:38

# You will keep the secrets in ya

1:12:381:12:40

One man who's not

happy about the BRITs

1:12:491:12:52

is Liam Gallagher, who is nominated

for Best Male, but is furious

1:12:521:12:55

that he hasn't been asked to perform

and says the Brits have "ballooned

1:12:551:12:59

it" and are too scared

to let him onstage.

1:12:591:13:01

And unlike at the Baftas,

where almost every actress wore

1:13:011:13:06

black on the red carpet,

at the BRITs expect

1:13:061:13:08

a variety of coloured outfits.

1:13:081:13:12

Instead, acts are asked

to wear a white rose pin

1:13:121:13:15

if they want to show solidarity

for anti-harassment movements.

1:13:151:13:22

Nick will have the weather forecast

later and of course the sport as

1:13:241:13:28

well.

1:13:281:13:29

Dozens of students and parents

from the Florida high school

1:13:291:13:32

where 17 teenagers and staff members

were killed last week will march

1:13:321:13:35

in the state capital Tallahassee

later, as part of a campaign

1:13:351:13:39

to make schools safer.

1:13:391:13:41

President Trump has signed an order

to ban bump-stock devices,

1:13:411:13:44

which enable rifles to shoot

hundreds of rounds a minute.

1:13:441:13:46

Lewis Mizen is a student

at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High

1:13:461:13:49

School, the scene of

last week's shooting.

1:13:491:13:51

He joins us live from Tallahassee.

1:13:511:13:55

Thank you so much for coming on the

programme again. Many of our viewers

1:13:551:13:59

would have seen and heard you

speaking to us over the weekend. I

1:13:591:14:02

suppose most importantly of all, how

are you nearly one week on?

I know

1:14:021:14:07

Kate. Getting through it day by day.

-- I'm OK. What's happened over the

1:14:071:14:15

last few days has been a great

distraction. I've been with my

1:14:151:14:18

friends, dealing with interviews and

planning this Tallahassee trip. It's

1:14:181:14:23

been a really good distraction for

me and obviously earlier today, it

1:14:231:14:28

doesn't feel like earlier today, it

is two o'clock, at earlier yesterday

1:14:281:14:33

morning I was at a friend's funeral.

So obviously that was tough. But I

1:14:331:14:39

was surrounded by my friends, family

and the community and we are getting

1:14:391:14:43

through a day by day.

You say you

have been to a friend's funeral. Is

1:14:431:14:48

there a feeling at the moment that

you need to channel this energy that

1:14:481:14:52

you have for change

1:14:521:14:53

you need to channel this energy that

you have for change? Is that why

1:14:531:14:54

there's such a pace about the way

you are going about your business

1:14:541:14:58

the moment?

Absolutely. We all know

how the new cycle works and we will

1:14:581:15:04

only stay in it for a week or so is

we want to get as much done as we

1:15:041:15:09

can while the focus is still on

what's happened, e-commerce if we

1:15:091:15:12

take our time to grieve -- because

if we take our time to grieve

1:15:121:15:17

quietly on our roads for a few

weeks, then by the time we are ready

1:15:171:15:21

to come back out and make a change

nobody will care. So I feel like

1:15:211:15:25

we've channelled our grief into

anger and into a need to make change

1:15:251:15:29

and I think that's what's been so

phenomenal about the movement.

1:15:291:15:35

In the UK we are waking up to the

President Trump order to ban bump

1:15:351:15:42

stocks, which turns an order

Meriweather and into a machine-gun,

1:15:421:15:45

for those who don't know, is that

something you would welcome or not

1:15:451:15:49

enough?

-- gun. -- ordinarily done.

It's good. The movement is becoming

1:15:491:16:07

too politicised, Democrat against

Republican, and the fact Donald

1:16:071:16:09

Trump is willing to show he's

willing to make inroads is

1:16:091:16:12

phenomenal. I hope this doesn't

become a political issue because it

1:16:121:16:17

isn't, it's an American issue, it's

something Americans need to be

1:16:171:16:21

united on, the safety of their

children and the fact he's willing

1:16:211:16:24

to make a step in the right

direction with this executive order

1:16:241:16:28

is fantastic.

You've got a very busy

few days, I know you're taking part

1:16:281:16:32

in a town hall meeting broadcast

live on CNN, you're meeting

1:16:321:16:36

lawmakers today as well. What will

the points you will be trying to get

1:16:361:16:40

across to the lawmakers, what do you

want to see achieved by Deon of this

1:16:401:16:47

process?

Obviously we had a long

drive up here, seven hours to

1:16:471:16:53

Tallahassee from parkland. -- by

doing this process. -- Parkland.

1:16:531:17:03

What we want to do is not only do we

want to talk about mental healthcare

1:17:031:17:09

in schools, which obviously is

incredibly important, but we want to

1:17:091:17:12

talk about why it's easier for

people in Florida to get their hands

1:17:121:17:17

on a semiautomatic weapon, the same

kind of weapon we send soldiers off

1:17:171:17:21

to fight foreign wars with, it's

easier to get those weapons than a

1:17:211:17:25

handgun. Obviously I don't know the

statistics but I don't know many

1:17:251:17:30

school shootings that have been

carried out by a guy with a handgun.

1:17:301:17:33

Most happen with these kinds of

weapons of war. We want to talk to

1:17:331:17:39

them and tried... If Donald Trump is

willing to make inroads then we hope

1:17:391:17:44

these state legislators will as

well. -- try. There was a vote on it

1:17:441:17:50

earlier, my days are mixed up, it

feels like earlier today but it was

1:17:501:17:55

yesterday, they voted down a

proposal to discuss banning assault

1:17:551:18:00

weapons. It was quite overwhelmingly

against. I'm really hoping by

1:18:001:18:05

meeting with the state legislators

we will be able to change their mind

1:18:051:18:09

on that and be willing to discuss

the issue because this is a hot

1:18:091:18:14

button issue. Lawmakers and

legislators can't shy away from

1:18:141:18:17

that. They need to kind of face it

head on because I've had classmates

1:18:171:18:22

who have faced in the bullets from

those guns head on and if they're

1:18:221:18:27

not willing to face the problem head

on them frankly that's ridiculous.

1:18:271:18:31

The way you're able to think so

clearly at this kind of time and

1:18:311:18:35

what you've seen in the last week or

so is so impressive. I wonder at the

1:18:351:18:39

end of this process, once you have

met these lawmakers and taken part

1:18:391:18:43

in live interviews and TV programmes

and done the world press as you are

1:18:431:18:50

doing at the moment, will you get a

chance to stop and grieve? How

1:18:501:18:54

difficult will that be and

eventually going back to school as

1:18:541:18:57

well?

The tentative start date for

us going back to school is next

1:18:571:19:02

Tuesday I believe. We're doing a

half day. We're also going back on

1:19:021:19:08

Sunday to be with our families so

the kids can feel safe going back to

1:19:081:19:13

school for the first time. That's

good, easing us back into it. But

1:19:131:19:17

Stoneman Douglas is my home and its

my high school home, I can't wait to

1:19:171:19:22

get back. This has been a tough week

and it's been intense and non-stop.

1:19:221:19:27

I haven't really been thinking about

it but it's been one of those weeks

1:19:271:19:33

where my dad made me toast this

morning and I didn't think I was

1:19:331:19:37

that hungry and before I realised it

I had eaten it all. It's where I'm

1:19:371:19:42

with my friends, it's 1am, and we

say let's take a 15 minute nap and

1:19:421:19:46

we wake up eight hours later because

we also exhausted. It's been a

1:19:461:19:51

really intense week and it's going

to stay with us for the rest of our

1:19:511:19:56

lives. But I think we will slowly be

able to get back to normality and I

1:19:561:20:00

think it will get easier as time

goes on. We live in an age of

1:20:001:20:05

terrorism and this is something that

haunts us every day, doesn't matter

1:20:051:20:08

where you're from, terrorism can

come in all forms. The only way to

1:20:081:20:13

be that is to live your life to the

fullest, go to school, be with your

1:20:131:20:18

friends, fall in love, forge your

future and I for one... It's been a

1:20:181:20:23

hit. It's been a punch to the face.

I know myself and a lot of my

1:20:231:20:29

classmates are going to get up and

keep walking because something like

1:20:291:20:32

this isn't going to stop us from

marching towards our future.

Lewis,

1:20:321:20:35

so good to speak to you, good luck

for the next few days and when you

1:20:351:20:43

go back to school as well.

Thank you

so much.

Incredible young man. 17

1:20:431:20:48

years old.

Dealing with that and all

of his school friends and the

1:20:481:20:52

teachers, we wish them well.

1:20:521:20:56

Let's find out what's happening with

the weather. It's going to get

1:20:561:21:00

colder?

1:21:001:21:01

Absolutely. Temperatures are dipping

away day by day as we go into the

1:21:021:21:08

weekend, some really proper cold air

on the way next week. Baidoa Thames

1:21:081:21:13

may not get above freezing for some

spots. That's next week, the rest of

1:21:131:21:17

this week with high pressure

building in offers a lot of dry

1:21:171:21:20

weather -- the temperatures. We

could have some light showers but

1:21:201:21:25

most places are dry, where you start

with cloud, brightening up a bit,

1:21:251:21:29

especially in parts of England and

Wales. A few fog patches in Northern

1:21:291:21:35

Ireland to begin with, clear weather

in Scotland, early cloud in the

1:21:351:21:39

south, some fog, but generally

sunny. In Scotland, a frosty start.

1:21:391:21:44

Areas of cloud coming and going but

particularly into England and Wales,

1:21:441:21:51

probably western fringes seeing the

best of the sunny spells, perhaps

1:21:511:21:54

into the far south-east but again

where the cloud is thick enough we

1:21:541:21:57

could have the odd light shower.

Some spots yesterday got to double

1:21:571:22:01

figures, today it is more like six

to nine for the top temper just be

1:22:011:22:05

day by day temperatures will be

dropping -- top temperature. More in

1:22:051:22:16

the way of blue frost going into

tomorrow morning. Temperatures at or

1:22:161:22:21

below freezing, a few fog patches as

well and with barely a breath of

1:22:211:22:25

wind for many, fairly slow to clear.

Away from those, with decent

1:22:251:22:29

sunshine to come tomorrow. More

cloud building from Northern Ireland

1:22:291:22:34

into western Scotland, the odd

shower here, a breeze picks up. Look

1:22:341:22:38

at the arrows. For most places,

variable cloud, sunny spells, dry,

1:22:381:22:43

and temperatures, eight, nine today,

more like six or seven tomorrow. A

1:22:431:22:48

fair amount of sunshine on Friday,

coming in from the east or

1:22:481:22:52

south-east. A bit of a dry effect

into the UK with more sunshine, less

1:22:521:22:58

cloud, the vast majority will be dry

and those temperatures more like

1:22:581:23:01

five or six. Over the weekend we

keep high pressure close by, that

1:23:011:23:05

means a lot of dry weather to come.

It's the flow of air around this

1:23:051:23:10

area of high pressure coming in from

the east or south-east allowing the

1:23:101:23:14

colder air to feed in. That's where

we're noticing the temperatures

1:23:141:23:17

coming down. A lot of fine, sunny

weather over the weekend but

1:23:171:23:21

temperatures coming down, still

further the wind picking up, feeling

1:23:211:23:25

colder in the wind but even colder

next week. You will hear much more

1:23:251:23:29

about that over the next few days.

Thanks very much, Nick.

1:23:291:23:34

There's a call for a dog DNA

database to be established to help

1:23:341:23:38

catch animals suspected

of killing livestock.

1:23:381:23:40

The National Police Chiefs' Council

also wants to be able

1:23:401:23:43

to search properties and confiscate

repeat offender dogs

1:23:431:23:45

from their owners.

1:23:451:23:46

Breakfast's John Maguire

Breakfast's John Maguire

is on a farm in North Wales and has

1:23:481:23:49

more detail for us this morning.

1:23:491:23:51

John, we are getting lots of viewers

commenting on this unsurprisingly

1:23:511:23:54

this morning.

You're absolutely

right. I've been talking to people

1:23:541:24:00

since we've been filming over the

last couple of weeks and there is a

1:24:001:24:04

great deal of interest, not only

from farmers, people in rural areas,

1:24:041:24:07

but from dog owners. We are in North

Wales, 1000 feet up above the Menai

1:24:071:24:14

Strait, that's Anglesey across

there. A beautiful and dramatic

1:24:141:24:18

landscape, one that is very

difficult to farm. One way of making

1:24:181:24:23

the land pay for farmers is

obviously through sheep farming. At

1:24:231:24:27

this time of year these ewes will be

inland, the farmers will start to

1:24:271:24:32

land in around six weeks -- will be

in lamb. They're very vulnerable.

1:24:321:24:38

When we talk about dog attacks,

they're not just vulnerable from

1:24:381:24:42

biting, but from chasing them around

and the problems that can cause for

1:24:421:24:47

a ewe's pregnancy. It isn't just

sheep, all sorts of livestock, but

1:24:471:24:52

now senior police officers are

saying enough is enough.

1:24:521:24:55

He's only 16 but Alfie is already

learning about some of the harsh

1:24:551:24:58

realities of farming after two

1:24:581:25:00

of his pedigree sheep were attacked

by a dog.

1:25:001:25:02

The Harriet family graze their sheep

on the South Downs and have

1:25:021:25:05

had several incidents.

1:25:051:25:07

It's just that throat wound on a bit

concerned about still.

1:25:071:25:10

It's very upsetting.

1:25:101:25:11

The trauma that the sheep

have gone through.

1:25:111:25:13

As I say, we're not going to quite

know yet how much this has impacted,

1:25:131:25:17

but it's not the first

incidents we've have had.

1:25:171:25:20

We've had two, three,

four throughout the year.

1:25:201:25:28

Only yesterday I went up

there and there were more dogs

1:25:311:25:34

off the lead.

1:25:341:25:35

You ask them nicely,

"Would you mind putting your dog

1:25:351:25:38

on the lead, please."

1:25:381:25:39

"Oh, my dog wouldn't do that,

it won't be my dog, my dog's

1:25:391:25:42

not like that."

1:25:421:25:43

That's all all you get really

and they won't do it.

1:25:431:25:46

This video shows the dog tracing

the ewes before biting them and days

1:25:461:25:50

later it returned to attack again.

1:25:501:25:51

So it's all about taking DNA

samples then I guess?

1:25:511:25:54

Absolutely.

1:25:541:25:55

Sergeant Tom Carter is a wildlife

and rural officer for Sussex Police

1:25:551:25:58

who started using forensic science

to tackle the problem.

1:25:581:26:00

So we just take the swab out,

we rub that around the bite wound

1:26:001:26:04

of where the dog's attacked

the sheep, put it back in the tube,

1:26:041:26:08

fill out all the details

on the back, send that off

1:26:081:26:11

to the lab and if we've got a dog

we can match it to we take another

1:26:111:26:15

swab from the dog and

match the two samples.

1:26:151:26:18

Now the most senior officers,

the National Police Chiefs' Council,

1:26:181:26:21

has published a report calling

for a DNA database of dogs suspected

1:26:211:26:24

of an attack.

1:26:241:26:25

It wants a law to force owners

to use fixed leads in livestock

1:26:251:26:28

areas and tougher sanctions,

possibly using Crown Courts,

1:26:281:26:30

not just magistrates.

1:26:301:26:31

We've put various recommendations

in the report that we would hope

1:26:311:26:34

the legislators and politicians

will take heed of an work with us

1:26:341:26:37

to improve the situation

for our rural communities.

1:26:371:26:40

Although the police chiefs argue

the current law is inadequate,

1:26:401:26:42

it does allow farmers to shoot dogs

that are found attacking livestock,

1:26:421:26:46

so reducing the huge number

of incidents would ease the stress

1:26:461:26:49

and suffering not just on farmers

but also on dog owners.

1:26:491:26:57

I want to pick up on the point of

having to shoot dogs. Gareth is the

1:27:041:27:10

farmer here, a familiar face on BBC

Breakfast, you have shot a dog

1:27:101:27:15

before, not something very pleasant

to do?

God, no, it is horrible.

1:27:151:27:21

Farmers don't want to do it. We are

dog owners, dog lovers, it's the

1:27:211:27:28

last straw really but when something

is chasing and killing an animal you

1:27:281:27:31

have no choice. If you can't catch

it, you have to destroy it. The

1:27:311:27:36

thing is, John, if they've killed a

sheep, the majority of the time they

1:27:361:27:41

will go back and kill again. It's in

the DNA, it isn't the fault of the

1:27:411:27:46

dog, it's the fault of the owner.

Education is key here. We need

1:27:461:27:51

people to understand that these dogs

need to be on leads and they

1:27:511:27:54

shouldn't be left alone, especially

in the countryside and around

1:27:541:28:00

livestock.

Thank you very much

indeed, Gareth. One of the points

1:28:001:28:03

made in the police report says that

repeat offending by dogs is a real

1:28:031:28:08

issue, that's one of the reasons the

senior police officers believe the

1:28:081:28:12

DNA database would be very effective

in trying to make sure that if an

1:28:121:28:16

animal is injured, if an animal is

attacked by a dog and they manage to

1:28:161:28:21

trace the DNA, they can figure out

the dog responsible and stop that

1:28:211:28:25

dog attacking again. Back to you.

Thanks, John. Naga mentioned about

1:28:251:28:29

the comments coming in, let's read a

couple. Allen says bring back dog

1:28:291:28:34

licenses, chip every dog and make

the license £1000, maybe they will

1:28:341:28:39

control them

1:28:391:32:00

That's all from me for now.

1:32:001:32:02

I'm back with the latest

from the BBC London newsroom

1:32:021:32:04

in half an hour.

1:32:041:32:05

Plenty more on our website

at the usual address.

1:32:051:32:08

Bye for now.

1:32:081:32:09

Hello, this is Breakfast,

with Dan Walker and Naga Munchetty.

1:32:091:32:11

Here's a summary of this morning's

main stories from BBC News.

1:32:111:32:16

President Trump has suggested

he could be willing to make some

1:32:161:32:19

changes on gun control laws,

following the school shooting

1:32:191:32:21

in Florida last week.

1:32:211:32:22

He has signed an order to ban

bump-stock devices which turn

1:32:221:32:25

rifles into machine-guns.

1:32:251:32:26

They were used by a gunman

who killed 58 Las Vegas

1:32:261:32:30

concert-goers last year.

1:32:301:32:31

Mr Trump says legislation

could be ready "very soon".

1:32:311:32:38

The bombardment of the rebel-held

Eastern Ghouta by the Syrian

1:32:381:32:41

government and its allies has

continued for a third day,

1:32:411:32:44

prompting the United Nations to warn

of the risk of a second Aleppo.

1:32:441:32:47

Reports suggest around 250 people

have died following two

1:32:471:32:50

days of attacks.

1:32:501:32:51

According to activists,

it is the worst violence in the area

1:32:511:32:54

near Damascus since 2013.

1:32:541:32:57

Heavy drinking may be a major risk

factor for the early

1:32:571:33:00

onset of dementia.

1:33:001:33:02

Scientists in France looked

at 57,000 cases of dementia

1:33:021:33:07

in people under 65 and found

that a third could have

1:33:071:33:11

been caused by alcohol-related

brain damage.

1:33:111:33:12

The Supreme Court is to rule

on whether the Metropolitan Police

1:33:121:33:16

failed two victims of black cab

rapist John Worboys.

1:33:161:33:20

Scotland Yard is appealing

against a previous decision

1:33:201:33:23

that they breached the human rights

of two women whose testimony

1:33:231:33:26

they failed to investigate properly.

1:33:261:33:28

The Metropolitan Police

argues it had practices

1:33:281:33:29

and procedures in place.

1:33:291:33:31

If the ruling is upheld,

this could be a landmark case

1:33:311:33:34

for victim's rights.

1:33:341:33:37

More than 60 Brexit supporting

Conservative MPs have written

1:33:371:33:40

to the Prime Minister,

setting out what

1:33:401:33:44

they believe Britain should achieve

from a deal with Brussels.

1:33:441:33:49

The MPs insist that

Britain should be free

1:33:491:33:52

to negotiate trade deals with other

countries as soon as it

1:33:521:33:55

leaves the EU.

1:33:551:33:56

Senior ministers will meet tomorrow

to discuss what the government wants

1:33:561:33:59

from the final Brexit deal.

1:33:591:34:00

With the awards season in full

swing, tonight it's the turn

1:34:001:34:03

of the music industry

and the BRIT Awards,

1:34:031:34:06

the great and the good of the pop

world are hoping to bag a trophy.

1:34:061:34:13

Dua Lipa is leading the way

with the highest number

1:34:131:34:16

of nominations ever given

to a female artist -

1:34:161:34:18

seven in total.

1:34:181:34:21

The 22-year-old had a number one

with New Rules and is heading

1:34:211:34:24

towards 200,000 sales

with her self-titled debut album.

1:34:241:34:31

That was my moment of feeling old. I

haven't heard that song.

1:34:311:34:35

That was my moment of feeling old. I

haven't heard that song. And you

1:34:351:34:39

were jigging away to it.

My four-year-old loves it.

1:34:391:34:44

Maybe that's the age bracket. And

Dan likes it.

1:34:441:34:50

That's because we are in the car

with them.

1:34:501:34:54

You have to be careful with lyrics

for kids as well.

1:34:541:34:57

Do you press knew the? I just forget

she is singing those inappropriate

1:34:571:35:02

lyrics.

Parenting goals. We will be live in

1:35:021:35:07

South Korea?

Very soon. Just a quick talk about

1:35:071:35:13

Chelsea and Barcelona last night. It

was all going so well for Chelsea

1:35:131:35:17

and it should have been a perfect

match and then Lionel Messi got

1:35:171:35:21

involved, and denied them a victory.

1:35:211:35:24

Chelsea had the better

of the chances and eventually took

1:35:241:35:27

the lead through Willian,

after he'd twice hit

1:35:271:35:30

the post earlier.

1:35:301:35:30

But the Spanish giants came

on strong in the second half

1:35:301:35:33

and Messi capitalised on a Chelsea

error to make it 1-1 and give

1:35:331:35:37

Barcelona an important away goal

going into the second leg.

1:35:371:35:44

One mistake.

1:35:441:35:49

But, as you know very well,

against these types of players,

1:35:491:35:56

Messi and Suarez, if you make

a mistake you pay.

1:35:561:36:04

So Lionel Messi has tried to score

against Chelsea for the last nine

1:36:061:36:10

times. He really hadn't scored

against them at Stamford Bridge and

1:36:101:36:14

finally did it, much to Chelsea's an

audience.

1:36:141:36:19

England women head coach

Phil Neville has named

1:36:191:36:21

Chelsea's Anita Asante in his first

squad for next month's

1:36:211:36:24

SheBelieves Cup

in the United States.

1:36:241:36:25

Asante, who was last called up

in 2015, was one of several players

1:36:251:36:29

who said they were poorly treated

by previous boss Mark Sampson.

1:36:291:36:32

Injured skipper Steph Houghton has

also been named in the squad.

1:36:321:36:35

Right, let's head to

the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang,

1:36:351:36:37

where Kat Downes has been keeping

across the action for us.

1:36:371:36:40

Morning, Kat.

1:36:401:36:44

Good morning! Yes, we are into K-12

and it's another lovely sunny day.

1:36:441:36:53

-- daily 12. It's all going rather

to plan for Eve Muirhead and the

1:36:531:37:00

curling team. They had an amazing

win and are through to the

1:37:001:37:05

semifinals after beating the

defending Olympic champions Canada.

1:37:051:37:08

They were behind going into the

final end but they won it 6-4 I've.

1:37:081:37:13

Such a tense match. That will deny

Canada a medal at curling for the

1:37:131:37:19

first time ever at a Winter Olympic

Games, so huge for Great Britain's

1:37:191:37:23

women. Disappointment for the men

and Kyle Smith in the last hour. A

1:37:231:37:29

heavy loss to the USA, they lost

10-4 and now need to come off in a

1:37:291:37:34

play-off against Switzerland if they

are to make it through to the

1:37:341:37:38

semifinals. They conceded four in

the final end, is a very expensive

1:37:381:37:42

at the end for great written's men,

but they aren't out of it yet --

1:37:421:37:46

Great Britain. Billy Morgan is

through to Saturday's final after

1:37:461:37:52

taking a final qualification spot.

Jamie Nichols and Rowan Coultas

1:37:521:37:57

missed out. But Billy Morgan will be

in the finals. And one of the

1:37:571:38:03

biggest names in this Winter

Olympics is Lindsey Bond, the most

1:38:031:38:07

decorated skier of all time. She

took the bronze in what will be the

1:38:071:38:11

final Olympic downhill race -- Agro

three. She didn't compete four years

1:38:111:38:17

ago and was back in the mix today to

try and regain the title, but it

1:38:171:38:23

went to an Italian who took the gold

and Lindsey Vonn now signs of on her

1:38:231:38:30

Olympic career. But no other female

skier has ever done as well as that,

1:38:301:38:35

so Lindsey Vonn signing out with a

bronze medal. Unfortunately there

1:38:351:38:39

will be no medal at all for Great

Britain's Elise Christie. I am sure

1:38:391:38:44

you were all trying to cheer her on

through that the event, she crashed

1:38:441:38:49

out of the first two and was then

heartbreakingly disqualified after

1:38:491:38:52

that fall at the start. She injured

her ankle at the start of that 1000

1:38:521:38:58

metre heat yesterday. She picked

herself up and clawed her way back

1:38:581:39:03

through the field, but the officials

decided she had picked up some

1:39:031:39:07

violations on the way and they

disqualified her, Soho Olympics

1:39:071:39:12

again after three missed attempts in

Sochi ends again. -- so her

1:39:121:39:17

Olympics.

1:39:171:39:22

I worked so hard to come

back from this injury.

1:39:221:39:25

I think 1,000 people wouldn't have

skated with my ankle

1:39:251:39:28

the way it was.

1:39:281:39:29

I could barely bend my knee.

1:39:291:39:30

It's just...

1:39:301:39:31

The only thing I can say

is I promise Britain I

1:39:311:39:34

will fight back from this

and I will come back for Beijing.

1:39:341:39:37

And hopefully I can do

Britain proud then.

1:39:371:39:44

Fingers crossed that her fortunes

change over the next four years and

1:39:441:39:49

we will see her eventually come away

with an Olympic medal. She is of

1:39:491:39:53

course a three-time world champion.

You just feel that an Olympic medal

1:39:531:39:56

may elude her in four years time as

well. But it just goes to show what

1:39:561:40:01

a brutal sport the short track can

be.

1:40:011:40:05

Thank you very much. It certainly

has been brutal for Elise Christie.

1:40:051:40:08

Everyone has an opinion on her. A

huge discussion point on social

1:40:081:40:12

media. You skated with her in Sochi

and has been her teammate for many

1:40:121:40:19

years. Nice to see you. She is

already talking about Beijing,

1:40:191:40:25

straight after that huge

disappointment, showing what a

1:40:251:40:28

fighter she is. Do you think she

will actually be there in Beijing at

1:40:281:40:33

the Winter Olympics?

I would love to

see her there because I think she

1:40:331:40:37

still believes she is good enough

and we all do, so fingers crossed in

1:40:371:40:41

four years she can do it. It is

another four years, she has to go

1:40:411:40:45

through all of the training, and I

think it will be tough. At first and

1:40:451:40:50

foremost she has to get back home

and take some time and recover from

1:40:501:40:53

the injury.

She is obviously good

enough because of what she has

1:40:531:40:57

achieved so far, but there's been a

lot of criticism about how much she

1:40:571:41:01

pushes. Her determination is in no

doubt at all and that's brilliant,

1:41:011:41:06

but the penalties that have been

applied, the disqualification, it

1:41:061:41:11

implies she misjudges how far she

should push to win.

I think she does

1:41:111:41:17

push it to the limits.

Beyond?

I

don't think so. We've seen her

1:41:171:41:23

become world champion in the last 12

months. She knows she can do it and

1:41:231:41:28

that's plain to her strengths. I

think maybe there are things that

1:41:281:41:32

have gone against her, but she will

probably say she has made a few

1:41:321:41:37

mistakes, but she has been there and

done it and got World Championship

1:41:371:41:41

titles, it just wasn't meant to be

at this Olympics.

Is she more

1:41:411:41:46

emotionally charged at this Olympics

than in the past? There have been a

1:41:461:41:50

lot of tears and instances when

she's weeping because she has either

1:41:501:41:53

been disqualified or injured

herself. Is that part of her

1:41:531:41:57

character?

I think so. That's her

way of being able to release after

1:41:571:42:01

races. She lets out that outburst of

emotion and then she can and switch

1:42:011:42:05

back to being very determined when

she comes back to the start line for

1:42:051:42:10

the next race. I think the biggest

challenge is just being able to

1:42:101:42:13

switch back into racing mode and she

can do that.

Do you think that...

1:42:131:42:23

Naga was talking about the

criticism. Many people have said she

1:42:231:42:26

is a role model because of the way

she keeps coming back. How does she

1:42:261:42:31

want to be seen? I know she is so

frustrated she can't get analytic

1:42:311:42:35

medal, but how do she analyse how

she is being viewed by everyone else

1:42:351:42:39

and how kids might look up to her?

I

think she is very inspired a fact

1:42:391:42:43

that she has been able to inspire

these and the messages she has been

1:42:431:42:48

sending have been -- she has been

sent have been really nice and I

1:42:481:42:54

think we have seen that she didn't

make it to the finish line but the

1:42:541:42:58

messages she has gotten around the

world, even the Korean fans looked

1:42:581:43:01

like they were devastated when she

fell over. She wants to inspire

1:43:011:43:05

people but also be seen as a

successful athlete in her own right.

1:43:051:43:09

No one really wants to be that kind

of person.

She wants to still put

1:43:091:43:13

that right. How are you prepped

psychologically, and emotionally for

1:43:131:43:17

this? Because you said these Olympic

Games weren't meant to be for her

1:43:171:43:23

this time, but you could say that

about not winning a sack race or an

1:43:231:43:30

egg and spoon race, but not

something you trained for your

1:43:301:43:32

entire life, or can you? Do you go,

it wasn't my time? It seems to

1:43:321:43:39

reasonable, almost.

That's part of

being a sports person. We go out and

1:43:391:43:44

we put ourselves on the line knowing

that it could go wrong. Police does

1:43:441:43:50

push the boundaries and goes out

there to win -- Elise. The psych

1:43:501:43:56

team have made sure she can deal

with whatever comes.

What are you

1:43:561:44:00

told to do when you lose and its

dramatic?

It is being able to take

1:44:001:44:04

it back and she will probably now

spend time in the next couple of

1:44:041:44:09

months debriefing on where she went

wrong. She will look and fingers

1:44:091:44:13

crossed she is able to see the key

point is that she could have done

1:44:131:44:17

differently. I think sitting here

today after the race, it is

1:44:171:44:20

difficult to do that. But it is

almost taking the emotion out of it,

1:44:201:44:24

sitting back and debriefing.

I don't

see her changing from being that all

1:44:241:44:28

or nothing. Issue going to change

that?

Being in a racing situation

1:44:281:44:33

where you have to make quick

decisions and be in the moment, I

1:44:331:44:37

think that kind of is what we need

in the sport, someone who is

1:44:371:44:42

determined to win and is able to

just think fast and think, I'm going

1:44:421:44:46

to do that because that's what I

believe is best.

The fact that it's

1:44:461:44:50

a brutal and unbelievable is what

makes it so good to watch. Thanks.

1:44:501:44:57

Thanks very much. Let's find out if

it's going to be icy. Not

1:44:571:45:06

Pyeongchang levels, but what about

the UK?

1:45:061:45:09

Wait until next week, curling on the

North Sea next week, that's maybe an

1:45:091:45:15

exaggeration, but colder next week,

a gradual step down to the colder

1:45:151:45:18

weather for the rest of the week

into the weekend. Lots of sunshine

1:45:181:45:22

over the next few days, a cloudy

start in Norfolk. Our Weather

1:45:221:45:26

Watcher pictures coming in. This is

the satellite, high pressure and

1:45:261:45:31

cloud moving around, north-easterly

flow, cloud moving into England and

1:45:311:45:35

Wales overnight temperatures here

haven't dipped too far, clear skies

1:45:351:45:39

in Scotland, a frost and a few fog

patches in Northern Ireland. A few

1:45:391:45:44

light showers around in England and

Wales but most places will stay dry.

1:45:441:45:48

When it comes to the wind, you can't

see too many arrows, very light

1:45:481:45:53

winds, variable cloud, sunshine, the

best of the sunshine in Scotland and

1:45:531:45:57

those temperatures are edging down a

bit. If you're in a bit of blue sky,

1:45:571:46:02

sunshine this afternoon, with thy

light breeze, not feeling too bad.

1:46:021:46:05

The areas of cloud will disappear

further tonight. You can see the

1:46:051:46:11

satellite showing the clear parts.

That means temperatures drop a bit

1:46:111:46:15

further tonight compare to last

night. More of us tomorrow will wake

1:46:151:46:19

up with a frost -- compared to. A

few degrees below freezing

1:46:191:46:25

particularly in rural spots. Some

fog to start the day. Some patches

1:46:251:46:29

will be slow to clear. Away from

those, sunny spells, variable cloud,

1:46:291:46:34

the breeze picking up a little bit

for Northern Ireland into western

1:46:341:46:38

Scotland. Look at the wind arrows,

the chance of catching a few light

1:46:381:46:41

showers ahead of a weather system

well to the north-west of us and

1:46:411:46:45

those temperatures leak a degree or

so into Thursday. Pleasant, with

1:46:451:46:51

light winds and sunshine, the same

on Friday, the breeze picking up in

1:46:511:46:56

Western and southern areas, though.

The chance for a light shower

1:46:561:46:59

somewhere but the vast majority will

stay dry and temperatures around

1:46:591:47:03

four, five, six almost by Friday.

Cooling down a bit into the weekend.

1:47:031:47:09

This is the weather set up with high

pressure from Scandinavia, flowing

1:47:091:47:13

from the south-east, with us all the

way through the weekend into next

1:47:131:47:16

week. Ecole direction for the air

coming in. Temperatures over the

1:47:161:47:21

weekend coming down a few degrees --

a cold. It will feel colder in the

1:47:211:47:26

wind but a lot of dry, sunny weather

over the weekend, more cloud at

1:47:261:47:31

times in eastern Scotland and

north-east England. For the weekend,

1:47:311:47:34

looking dry with sunshine. A cold

wind but hold off in saying anything

1:47:341:47:39

feels particularly cold until next

week when temperatures will be a

1:47:391:47:43

good few degrees below freezing, for

some even by day, that is the latest

1:47:431:47:47

forecast. In the middle of the week,

the chance for some snow. Really

1:47:471:47:52

cold weather coming in from the east

next week. Looks like we're keeping

1:47:521:47:57

this easterly flow for a week or

more. If you're holding out for

1:47:571:48:02

spring, that seems some distance

away just yet.

1:48:021:48:05

It seems an age away. Nick, thanks

very much.

1:48:051:48:10

Good morning.

1:48:101:48:13

Compassion symbols are increasingly

being used in hospitals to remind

1:48:131:48:16

staff and visitors to be more

respectful around patients receiving

1:48:161:48:19

end of life care.

1:48:191:48:20

The signs are displayed on rooms

or wards where a patient

1:48:201:48:23

is expected to die within hours

or days or when someone has

1:48:231:48:26

just passed away.

1:48:261:48:32

Tracey Bleakley is the Chief

Executive of Hospice UK.

1:48:321:48:35

She's joined by Patricia Mayle,

who used the compassion symbol

1:48:351:48:38

scheme before her husband died.

1:48:381:48:39

Good morning to you both.

Good

morning.

Patricia, let's start with

1:48:391:48:44

you, your husband died three and a

half years ago. What happened?

My

1:48:441:48:50

husband died of a very serious

stroke. A brainstem stroke. He was

1:48:501:48:55

incapacitated completely. Lived for

eight and a half weeks. The end of

1:48:551:49:02

this life meant he was put onto

palliative care, that's when we

1:49:021:49:07

first saw the symbol, pinned to the

door of the he was in.

What did that

1:49:071:49:12

mean?

At first it meant nothing but

I was told that it meant every

1:49:121:49:19

member of staff, no matter what

rank, knew that the person was on

1:49:191:49:23

end of life care and that it meant

we as a family were treated with

1:49:231:49:30

respect and even though my husband

was no longer eating and drinking,

1:49:301:49:34

we were fed and watered. It means

that you are offered moment of,

1:49:341:49:44

little air locks, hand prints,

photographs and what they call

1:49:441:49:49

comfort bags, small bags of

toiletries -- air locks. The girl

1:49:491:49:55

guides did those -- air.

Did that

make a difference?

Yes it did --

1:49:551:50:03

air.

It's got to be right.

You only

get one chance. It's got to be right

1:50:031:50:09

for every patient every time. That's

the aim, to try and have it like

1:50:091:50:14

that.

Made a difference to Patrick,

that must be why it has proven to be

1:50:141:50:20

such a good way of doing these

things because of the impact it has

1:50:201:50:24

on the family.

That's right, it's a

whole system of compassionate care.

1:50:241:50:28

It's about switching from thinking

about just the patient to thinking

1:50:281:50:32

about the whole family and what they

need. Pat was running out of the

1:50:321:50:35

door to see her husband she could

barely think about putting her shoes

1:50:351:50:39

and coat on, she was in thinking she

would need a toothbrush or shower

1:50:391:50:44

gel. When you get there, you're in a

busy place and you want peace and

1:50:441:50:48

quiet. For someone to offer you a

cup of tea or for someone paying for

1:50:481:50:54

your car parking, those acts of

kindness that people need and value

1:50:541:50:57

at that time.

Pat mentioned it was a

swan?

Yes, a swan logo.

Any reason

1:50:571:51:05

certain symbols are chosen? A swan

in this case but that's not always

1:51:051:51:09

the case, is it?

There are schemes

designed locally, people will think

1:51:091:51:14

of things that mean things to them.

In Northern Ireland there is a

1:51:141:51:18

compassion symbol, some people use a

rose, in children it might be a

1:51:181:51:22

snowdrop or a butterfly.

Having been

through that yourself and seeing the

1:51:221:51:27

benefit, are you helping to make

these comfort bags for others?

I am.

1:51:271:51:32

I attended a Griezmann group 12

months after. They were appealing

1:51:321:51:37

for people to so these little bags,

just a drawstring bag -- bereavement

1:51:371:51:44

group. I said I couldn't do that.

And they asked for contents. Where

1:51:441:51:49

they were getting them from was just

haphazard. I was a Girl Guide since

1:51:491:51:55

I was ten, I thought, maybe we could

do something so I tentatively said,

1:51:551:52:01

I can't promise but maybe. We

launched it in September 2015 that

1:52:011:52:08

Girl Guiding in Greater Manchester

west, Salford and Trafford, would

1:52:081:52:12

provide comfort bags. It has gone

crazy. We have done 3000 and we

1:52:121:52:18

extended it to north-west England a

year later. In north-west England

1:52:181:52:23

they've done over 7000.

Wow.

Every

child, every member from the

1:52:231:52:30

youngest to the oldest can take

part.

It shows how important it is

1:52:301:52:34

but we shouldn't forget, Tracy,

there is no assumption that care

1:52:341:52:38

isn't given or thought isn't made

for those who are suffering

1:52:381:52:44

bereavement or dealing with loved

ones in palliative care. It's an

1:52:441:52:49

extra symbol, isn't it? About it is

and the key to its communication

1:52:491:52:54

is...

1:52:541:52:59

is... It's all about weather people

want a quiet space and weather they

1:53:001:53:03

want people in and out.

1:53:031:53:09

want people in and out. It's not

just about the nurses and the

1:53:091:53:11

doctors, other people in there as

well.

And people floating around the

1:53:111:53:15

hospital, a sign that says, don't go

in and say something stupid. Be

1:53:151:53:21

aware of what's happening.

Keep the

noise down outside.

What about the

1:53:211:53:26

workers? Pat, you were there and

focused on your husband, as your

1:53:261:53:30

family was, but since you've been

working with the bags, any comments

1:53:301:53:34

on how other people have said it has

helped them? It's very difficult to

1:53:341:53:39

talk to a family going through a

tough time. You often don't know

1:53:391:53:43

weather to intrude or offer

sympathy.

That's right, I haven't

1:53:431:53:47

had any patient contact. I've been

volunteering at Salford Royal but

1:53:471:53:52

more on the bereavement office side.

I don't really have contact with

1:53:521:53:58

actual patients.

It's difficult I

would imagine from the other side

1:53:581:54:04

seeing people almost tiptoeing

around you?

Yeah. That's a good

1:54:041:54:07

thing about the symbol. Everyone

knows. Everyone who enters the room

1:54:071:54:15

or goes past is aware of what you

are going through.

Of the last thing

1:54:151:54:20

you want to do is explain what's

happening to your husband each time

1:54:201:54:24

that the last thing.

Absolutely.

Great to see you coming in and

1:54:241:54:28

you're now helping others -- the

last thing

1:54:281:54:33

you're now helping others -- the

last thing. We are talking about

1:54:331:54:39

sleep this morning and how much

teenagers need.

1:54:391:54:41

What's the story?

There's a school,

we have spoken to a head teacher at

1:54:411:54:48

a school, starting school later for

teenagers.

1:54:481:54:55

teenagers. If you are struggling

with a teenager this morning, it you

1:54:571:55:00

are struggling with teenagers this

morning, there's a reason they are

1:55:001:55:06

so tired.

Jackie said not helpful

preparing a young person for a

1:55:061:55:12

workplace where they can't choose

their hours. Kirin said you will

1:55:121:55:16

have the same problem later in the

morning when they are meant to be

1:55:161:55:20

getting up. Sounds like Kirin is the

parent.

This is a period in time it

1:55:201:55:25

affects them, they do grow out of it

literally -- Kieron.

Amy says not

1:55:251:55:31

all teenagers have this. As a

university student I struggle to

1:55:311:55:35

stay up beyond 9:30pm. School at 7am

would have stopped me being in dance

1:55:351:55:40

classes and the girls Brigade, a

very important part of my

1:55:401:55:44

development, so one size doesn't fit

all.

Siobhan said her contours, and

1:55:441:55:49

best period is in the morning. We

could learn a thing or two from her

1:55:491:55:54

-- her best period. Graham, what are

you talking about again?

Well, Naga,

1:55:541:56:00

I'm talking about what you have been

talking about. We're at a school

1:56:001:56:04

this morning where teenagers start

later, A-level students start at

1:56:041:56:10

Hampton Court House at 1pm. Some

people on e-mail might be saying

1:56:101:56:14

their OK, they wake up early, but

the science is settled on this and

1:56:141:56:18

the answer lies in the teenage rain

-- they are OK. Particularly the

1:56:181:56:23

part that controls the body clock

that shifts in teenage years. Should

1:56:231:56:28

they start later in the day? We will

find out later

1:56:281:56:32

they start later in the day? We will

find out later

1:56:321:59:51

in half an hour.

1:59:511:59:52

Plenty more on our website

at the usual address.

1:59:521:59:54

Bye for now.

1:59:541:59:55

Hello.

2:00:132:00:15

This is Breakfast, with Dan Walker

and Naga Munchetty.

2:00:152:00:23

A move on gun policy

in the United States.

2:00:232:00:25

President Trump indicates he's

willing to make a change.

2:00:252:00:27

As students prepare to march

in the state capital after last

2:00:272:00:30

week's school shooting,

he says he'd support a ban

2:00:302:00:32

on devices which turn rifles

into machine guns.

2:00:322:00:40

Good morning.

2:00:462:00:47

It's Wednesday 21st February.

2:00:472:00:50

Also this morning...

2:00:502:00:56

Warnings of a humanitarian disaster

in Syria where hundreds of people

2:00:562:00:58

have died after days of bombing.

2:00:582:01:02

We look at how early onset

dementia could be linked

2:01:022:01:04

to regular heavy drinking.

2:01:042:01:12

It is an essential time of year for

British livestock farmers,

2:01:142:01:18

especially sheep farmers, as all the

animals go out into the field. It is

2:01:182:01:23

also a hazardous time and the

potential for dog attacks go up.

2:01:232:01:27

British police chiefs are saying the

time for action to tackle the issue

2:01:272:01:31

is now.

2:01:312:01:34

KFC has admitted many

of its restaurants could be closed

2:01:342:01:36

for the rest of the week

as the chain enters another

2:01:362:01:39

day of supply problems.

2:01:392:01:40

I will have the latest. Some great

news for the British women's linked

2:01:402:01:52

team in Pyeongchang. The men, if

they want to get through to the last

2:01:522:01:56

four, they will have to come through

a play-off against Switzerland.

2:01:562:02:02

Nick has the weather. With

high-pressure, the weather is

2:02:022:02:06

quieter, drier for the rest of the

week into the weekend. Increasing

2:02:062:02:10

amounts of sunshine at the weekend.

Things are turning colder gradually

2:02:102:02:14

and next week much, much colder. The

fall forecast coming up. I will look

2:02:142:02:20

forward to it.

2:02:202:02:23

First, our main story.

2:02:232:02:24

President Trump has suggested

he could be willing to make some

2:02:242:02:27

changes on gun control laws,

following the school shooting

2:02:272:02:29

in Florida last week.

2:02:292:02:30

He has signed an order to ban

bump-stock devices which turn

2:02:302:02:33

rifles into machine guns.

2:02:332:02:34

They were used by a gunman

who killed 58 Las Vegas

2:02:342:02:36

concert-goers last year.

2:02:362:02:39

Mr Trump says legislation

could be ready "very soon".

2:02:392:02:43

Our North America correspondent

David Willis reports.

2:02:432:02:46

Do we know where the shooter is?!

2:02:462:02:50

The scenes are nothing new here,

but last week's high school shooting

2:02:502:02:53

in Florida has galvanised the debate

on gun control in America in a way

2:02:532:02:57

few here can remember.

2:02:572:03:00

Students who survived

an attack which killed 17

2:03:002:03:02

of their teachers and classmates

are speaking out fluently

2:03:022:03:04

and forcefully.

2:03:042:03:07

Do not let people try

to get under your skin!

2:03:072:03:10

Their youthful voices

resonating where those of long

2:03:102:03:13

serving politicians have

largely fallen flat.

2:03:132:03:18

We are what's bringing the change.

2:03:182:03:20

We're going to keep talking.

2:03:202:03:21

We're going to keep pushing

until something is done,

2:03:212:03:24

because people are dying and this

can't happen any more.

2:03:242:03:28

Reflecting the national

mood of grief and anger

2:03:282:03:30

in the wake of last week's shooting,

President Trump, who supports gun

2:03:302:03:34

ownership, offered a concession -

a ban on bump-stocks,

2:03:342:03:38

a device used to devastating effect

in the Las Vegas massacre

2:03:382:03:41

last year.

2:03:412:03:44

I signed a memorandum directing

the attorney general to proposed

2:03:442:03:48

regulations to ban all

devices that turn legal

2:03:482:03:50

weapons into machine-guns.

2:03:502:03:56

Students arriving for a rally later

today in the Florida state capital

2:03:562:03:59

Tallahassee say that's not enough.

2:03:592:04:03

Some are heading to Washington

at the invitation of the White House

2:04:032:04:06

to press the case for

comprehensive gun reforms

2:04:062:04:09

with the President himself.

2:04:092:04:12

Some here are hailing

it a turning point

2:04:122:04:13

in the acrimonious debate

about guns, but America has been

2:04:132:04:16

here so many times before.

2:04:162:04:24

The Supreme Court --

2:04:352:04:39

The Supreme Court is to rule

on whether the Metropolitan Police

2:04:392:04:41

failed two victims of black cab

rapist John Worboys.

2:04:412:04:43

Scotland Yard is appealing

against a previous decision

2:04:432:04:45

that they breached the human rights

of two women whose testimony

2:04:452:04:47

they failed to investigate properly.

2:04:472:04:49

The Metropolitan Police

argues it had practices

2:04:492:04:50

and procedures in place.

2:04:502:04:51

If the ruling is upheld,

this could be a landmark case

2:04:512:04:54

for victims' rights.

2:04:542:04:55

more than 60 Brexit supporting MPs

have written to the Prime Minister

2:04:552:04:57

is saying what they think Britain

should achieve from a deal with

2:04:572:05:00

Brussels.

2:05:002:05:04

The MPs, from the European Research

Group of Tory backbenchers,

2:05:042:05:06

insist that Britain should be free

to negotiate trade deals

2:05:062:05:08

with other countries,

as soon as it leaves the EU.

2:05:082:05:10

Senior ministers will meet tomorrow

to discuss what the government wants

2:05:102:05:13

from the final Brexit deal.

2:05:132:05:18

Relatives of a missing 29-year-old

man have travelled to Israel

2:05:182:05:20

in the hope of raising awareness

of his disappearance.

2:05:202:05:23

Oliver McAfee from County Down

in Northern Ireland

2:05:232:05:28

was last seen three months ago

while cycling near Mitzpe Ramon.

2:05:282:05:30

Let's get more detail

from our Middle East Correspondent,

2:05:302:05:32

Tom Bateman, who is in our

Jerusalem newsroom.

2:05:322:05:35

Morning to you. What more do we know

about this case?

It was the 21st of

2:05:352:05:44

November that Oliver McAfee was last

seen. He had been away from home for

2:05:442:05:48

many months. He was cycling through

Europe and arrived in northern

2:05:482:05:52

Israel where he was on a popular

cycling trail. He came to Jerusalem

2:05:522:05:57

and was cycling through the Desert

and that is the last anyone heard of

2:05:572:06:01

him. Police found some of his

belongings full debate also found

2:06:012:06:05

piles of stones and pieces of paper

with words written from the Bible on

2:06:052:06:10

it. The police have said, they said

last month, they believe he is still

2:06:102:06:14

alive but they have no more details.

The search has yielded nothing. The

2:06:142:06:21

family has arrived and they will

hold a conference later this morning

2:06:212:06:23

was a base say they want to

revitalise the investigation, this

2:06:232:06:29

search. -- this morning - they say

they want to revitalise the

2:06:292:06:36

investigation. The lack of anything

is taking its control. -- told.

2:06:362:06:49

Heavy drinking may be a major risk

factor for the early

2:06:492:06:52

onset of dementia.

2:06:522:06:53

Scientists in France looked

at 57-thousand cases

2:06:532:06:55

of dementia in people under 65,

and found that a third

2:06:552:06:57

could have been caused

by alcohol-related brain damage.

2:06:572:06:59

Ben Ando reports.

2:06:592:07:00

Doctors already know heavy drinking

can lead to problems in the brain,

2:07:002:07:03

but this study focused on links

specifically to early onset

2:07:032:07:06

dementia, that means affecting

people younger than 65.

2:07:062:07:07

Researchers analysed the medical

records of more than 30 million

2:07:072:07:10

people in France, who'd

spent time in hospital

2:07:102:07:12

during 2008 and 2013.

2:07:122:07:17

They published the results

in the Lancet health journal.

2:07:172:07:19

In that nationwide group they found

1 million people with dementia

2:07:192:07:22

and of these 57,000 were under 65.

2:07:222:07:27

Among those people, heavy

drinking was linked to 39%,

2:07:272:07:29

or nearly one in four cases.

2:07:292:07:34

For this study, heavy drinking

was defined as a daily intake

2:07:342:07:37

of more than four units

of alcohol for women

2:07:372:07:39

and six for men,

that's the equivalent

2:07:392:07:40

of three pints of beer.

2:07:402:07:45

Previous research has

suggested that drinking small

2:07:452:07:47

amounts, particularly of red wine,

can have a positive effect.

2:07:472:07:53

Those studies really focus on very

modest levels of alcohol intake,

2:07:532:07:56

perhaps one or two units a day,

and perhaps that has lulled us

2:07:562:07:59

into a false sense of security

and perhaps we haven't seen

2:07:592:08:02

the other side of the curve,

where people have higher levels

2:08:022:08:04

of alcohol consumption that can be

harmful to the brain

2:08:042:08:07

in a variety of ways.

2:08:072:08:12

The Alzheimer's Society says it's

aware of the risks of heavy

2:08:122:08:14

drinking and its advice

to everyone remains the same -

2:08:142:08:17

try to drink no more than 14 units

of alcohol per week.

2:08:172:08:25

The majority of small

and medium-sized companies

2:08:252:08:26

are still paying male employees more

than their female colleagues,

2:08:262:08:30

according to the latest

government figures.

2:08:302:08:32

Just 15% of businesses have a higher

wage bill for women.

2:08:322:08:35

Companies have six weeks left

to report their gender pay gap.

2:08:352:08:42

So far almost 1,000 businesses have

responded out of the 9,000 asked.

2:08:422:08:48

The impact of social media

and screen use on young people's

2:08:482:08:51

health is to be examined by MPs.

2:08:512:08:52

The Science and Technology Committee

will address mounting

2:08:522:08:54

concerns that mobile phones,

in particular, are harming

2:08:542:08:56

children and young adults.

2:08:562:08:59

Earlier, Norman Lamb told this

programme that the inquiry

2:08:592:09:01

would look at the positives

and risks of social media.

2:09:012:09:09

Children's lives have changed

compared with what earlier

2:09:102:09:12

generations went through in terms of

the intensity of use of mobile

2:09:122:09:18

phones, smart social media. We need

to understand what the effects are,

2:09:182:09:23

positive and negative. It is

important not just think of this is

2:09:232:09:27

a problem. Of course, for very many

young people they are now getting

2:09:272:09:31

access to help with mental health

problems, for example, online.

2:09:312:09:40

It is time for the Brits. Young

people, music. It was lovely.

2:09:482:09:57

Anyway, let's move on. His one

person who is hoping to bag a trophy

2:09:572:10:03

tonight.

2:10:032:10:13

tonight. Dua Lipa has the highest

number of nominations ever given to

2:10:142:10:18

a female artist. She is very

popular. I've said her name! She is

2:10:182:10:26

heading towards 200,000 sales for

her self titled debut album. Of

2:10:262:10:30

course we wish all the Domine

nominees the best of luck. --

2:10:302:10:41

nominees.

2:10:412:10:44

The United Nations says it's deeply

worried for hundreds of thousands

2:10:442:10:46

of people in Syria trapped

by a mounting government bombardment

2:10:462:10:49

of the rebel-held area of Eastern

Ghouta.

2:10:492:10:50

The Syrian government

has insisted it's only

2:10:502:10:52

targeting militant fighters.

2:10:522:10:53

Our Middle East Editor,

Jeremy Bowen, looks

2:10:532:10:55

at the impact of the attacks.

2:10:552:10:56

This could be the beginning of the

2:10:562:11:03

end of smaller, rebel Harold

enclaves around Damascus have been

2:11:042:11:07

starved and bombed into submission.

Activists in eastern scooter say

2:11:072:11:16

this is as bad as it has been.

2:11:162:11:22

this is as bad as it has been.

We

can hear women and children crying

2:11:222:11:25

through windows of their home. There

was bombing en masse like rain.

2:11:252:11:32

There is nowhere to hide from this

nightmare.

-- on us. They have set

2:11:322:11:40

up a network of underground

hospitals. This girl, named in

2:11:402:11:45

Arabic Angel, escaped the worst but

will have to go back to the streets

2:11:452:11:49

to get home. And this is her area

will

2:11:492:11:57

will stop with the regime plane

dropping what appears to be a barrel

2:11:572:12:03

bomb. Unguided, and indiscriminate

killer. The Syrian regime denies

2:12:032:12:09

attacking civilians. It says it is

trying to liberate eastern Ghouta

2:12:092:12:14

from terrorists. How many times in

the last seven years have Syrians

2:12:142:12:20

dug through the rubble for

survivors? There is talk of safe

2:12:202:12:25

corridors out for civilians but,

based on past form, the regime wants

2:12:252:12:31

victory in eastern Ghouta and the

surrender of the rebels.

2:12:312:12:35

Joining us now from Delhi,

is Hamish De Bretton-Gordon.

2:12:352:12:41

He runs Doctors Under Fire which has

sent teams to eastern Ghouta. I

2:12:412:12:53

understand you lost one of your

doctors very recently. Can I start

2:12:532:12:57

by saying my condolences to you and

your team. Can you tell us what

2:12:572:13:01

happened?

2:13:012:13:05

What we are seeing very clearly as

genocide. Then we saw the chemical

2:13:052:13:09

attack here in Ghouta, we thought it

could not get any worse. With the

2:13:092:13:16

union of Syrian medical charities,

who I work with and support in

2:13:162:13:23

Aleppo in 2016, we thought it could

not get any worse. As you have heard

2:13:232:13:28

and seen over the last 48 hours, an

unbelievable barrage has happened,

2:13:282:13:35

both high explosives and also some

chemicals. Four of our hospitals

2:13:352:13:40

have been destroyed, some of them

underground and directly targeted.

2:13:402:13:44

They are at action. We have another

four which are also out of action.

2:13:442:13:48

Very sadly, one doctor was killed

overnight and we have also just

2:13:482:13:56

heard a nurse, who I don't know the

name of yet, was also killed this

2:13:562:14:03

direct targeting of hospitals and

medical staff is a crime against

2:14:032:14:09

humanity, against every Geneva

Convention. It is being done

2:14:092:14:11

deliberately to break the will of

the people. The figure of 200 dead

2:14:112:14:17

in 1000 injured over the last 48

hours is probably a massive under

2:14:172:14:22

estimation. It is an absolute living

hell. The UN has called for a

2:14:222:14:27

ceasefire. Brief few world leaders

have stepped forward to do that. We

2:14:272:14:31

know that President Putin is the one

who holds the line here and we urge

2:14:312:14:39

world leaders like Donald Trump and

Theresa May, and I will be speaking

2:14:392:14:41

to the Indian Prime Minister on

Friday, asking him and them to get

2:14:412:14:44

involved get the ceasefire that the

Russians can deliver.

Have you had

2:14:442:14:49

any access to the advisers of

President Putin in terms of asking

2:14:492:14:53

for help?

We have. We have been

talking to the Russians and

2:14:532:15:01

President Putin and Assad over the

last 12 months. You manage to get

2:15:012:15:05

500 children out of Aleppo in

December, 2016. We got 29 children

2:15:052:15:11

dying of cancer out of Ghouta on

Boxing Day just a few weeks ago. We

2:15:112:15:17

know that Putin can deliver the

ceasefire and make a sad do as he

2:15:172:15:21

sees fit. We know the election for

Putin is coming up in a few weeks'

2:15:212:15:26

time and we urge him to force his

ally, Assad, into a ceasefire. We

2:15:262:15:34

know he has won but what is key is

to stop the bloodshed and killing.

2:15:342:15:39

We have children who are dying and

urgently need medical support.

2:15:392:15:43

Unless we get them out, they will

die as some have died in the last

2:15:432:15:48

few weeks will stop there are a

thousand other adults who need

2:15:482:15:52

life-saving medical support. Quite

apart from those starving, 25% of

2:15:522:15:59

children have severe malnutrition in

Ghouta. No proper food has got there

2:15:592:16:04

in four years. It is an absolute

living hell. It will make sure the

2:16:042:16:08

nits are pale into something very

different.

2:16:082:16:17

different.

You've been speaking to

President Putin's camper, and you

2:16:182:16:21

are asking the Indian leader to help

as well as bass what needs to be

2:16:212:16:27

done? Is the only possible solution

to remove these children from the

2:16:272:16:32

area, is that it, in terms of having

a future in terms of families living

2:16:322:16:37

there in the future? Well, the very

near future, we need a ceasefire. We

2:16:372:16:41

need these bombs and bullets that

are raining down every minute of

2:16:412:16:44

every day to stop.

The future? The

place is raised to the ground.

2:16:442:16:52

Ghouta is flattened, it has

virtually no power, no running

2:16:522:16:55

water, no food. Is a secondary

thing. We'd made to get these

2:16:552:17:01

children out, certainly these 125

who are going to die without medical

2:17:012:17:05

support. 25% are dying of

malnutrition. This is in Western

2:17:052:17:10

Europe, this is the age of the

Mediterranean, how on earth can we

2:17:102:17:13

stand by and let this happen? In the

longer term, the Geneva

2:17:132:17:25

longer term, the Geneva peace peace

process is what we must support for

2:17:252:17:27

a long-term process to reconstruct

and rebuild Syria still at the

2:17:272:17:30

moment in Ghouta we have 400,000

people and if we don't do anything,

2:17:302:17:32

it would appear that the regime are

going to kill them all in order that

2:17:322:17:35

they can claim total victory in

Syria. I think we've just got to

2:17:352:17:38

accept they've won, whatever it

means politically we must acquiesce

2:17:382:17:40

to that and we must get food and

medical supplies into Ghouta and a

2:17:402:17:43

ceasefire to allow this to happen.

Hamish De Bretton-Gordon, director

2:17:432:17:53

of Doctors Under Fire, thank you for

talking to us. John Maguire has been

2:17:532:17:56

out and about four hours in north

Wales this morning at it looks

2:17:562:17:59

absolutely gorgeous there today.

Looking out across the Menai

2:17:592:18:03

Straits, you can see Anglesey in the

background, and we will be back with

2:18:032:18:08

John later in the programme. He's

talking about measures to prevent

2:18:082:18:13

animals, cattle, being worried by

dogs who have been let off the lead,

2:18:132:18:18

perhaps irresponsible dog owners or

owners who do not know the character

2:18:182:18:21

of the animal, we will be talking

about, what can be done and what

2:18:212:18:25

farmers can do as well. We can take

you to north Wales for the weather

2:18:252:18:29

now. And we start with

2:18:292:18:32

you to north Wales for the weather

now. And we start with fog and

2:18:322:18:35

that's right.

A fantastic view

looking out there at north Wales,

2:18:352:18:41

compared with this one, from this

morning in Northern Ireland, where

2:18:412:18:46

there are some fog patches around.

Getting off to a frosty start as

2:18:462:18:51

well. In Scotland there is a frost,

with, which is a few degrees above

2:18:512:18:55

freezing in much of England and

Wales, where there is cloud. This

2:18:552:19:00

cloud is coming in from the

north-east and it is not going to

2:19:002:19:04

deliver as much rain as yesterday

but there are a few light showers

2:19:042:19:07

around. But essentially it is a

mainly dry day two come. Some of the

2:19:072:19:13

cloud in England and Wales will

break up a little bit allowing some

2:19:132:19:16

sunshine to come through, but the

best of the sunshine will be in

2:19:162:19:19

Scotland and away from any of those

fog patches in Northern Ireland,

2:19:192:19:22

where it could be quite stubborn to

clear today. Temperatures are on the

2:19:222:19:26

way down a little bit. Around

six-nine for the top temperature

2:19:262:19:30

today. Temperatures gradually

trailing off towards the weekend.

2:19:302:19:37

Tonight, a lot of the land showing

up across the UK, indicating where

2:19:372:19:41

it is clear overnight. Still some

fog patches around, but more clear

2:19:412:19:45

whether tonight, and that means more

in the way of frost. Below freezing,

2:19:452:19:50

particularly in more rural spots.

So, a frost to start the day

2:19:502:19:53

tomorrow for many of us are, but

there will be some sunshine to start

2:19:532:19:57

the day. Still some areas of cloud

around, some sunny spells and the

2:19:572:20:02

breeze picking up a little bit for

Northern Ireland into western

2:20:022:20:07

Scotland, where there might be one

or two light showers. Fog patches in

2:20:072:20:12

the morning slow to clear. On Friday

there will be more in the way of

2:20:122:20:18

sunshine. Just a few areas of cloud

around. You will notice a few more

2:20:182:20:24

wind arrows showing up, so it turns

out Breazeale on Friday. It will

2:20:242:20:30

feel that bit colder. And that is a

process which continues into the

2:20:302:20:35

weekend. However, high pressure

across Scandinavia, the flow of air

2:20:352:20:39

coming around that from the east, so

it is a chilly direction. But most

2:20:392:20:45

places, dry over the weekend. A lot

of sunshine, perhaps rowdier towards

2:20:452:20:51

Eastern Scotland on Sunday, but most

will see the sunshine. But notice

2:20:512:20:54

those temperatures just they're

coming down a few degrees and the

2:20:542:21:01

breeze is picking up. Supposed dead

feeling colder into the weekend, but

2:21:012:21:06

some sunshine on

2:21:062:21:07

feeling colder into the weekend, but

some sunshine on the way.

I am very

2:21:072:21:11

much enjoying our new weather

graphics.

I would enjoy them if the

2:21:112:21:15

numbers were a bit greater!

But you

like the look of them?

Are we

2:21:152:21:20

allowed to reserve opinion?

2:21:202:21:25

allowed to reserve opinion? But

Nick, YOU get ten out of ten!

2:21:292:21:36

Nick, YOU get ten out of ten!

We are

talking about fast food this

2:21:362:21:38

morning, and KFC has admitted that

many of its restaurants could be

2:21:382:21:41

close to the rest of the week. It is

having more supply chain problems.

2:21:412:21:45

Steph has more on that and the other

main business stories.

2:21:452:21:48

This is a really big story, isn't

it? It is, because you don't realise

2:21:482:21:55

what goes into making a restaurant

like this function, with 900 outlets

2:21:552:22:00

across the UK, and 400 of them are

still closed this morning, and in

2:22:002:22:03

the ones which are open, many of

them have got reduced menus and

2:22:032:22:08

shortened hours. We spoke yesterday

about how this started, because KFC

2:22:082:22:14

ditched its old delivery partner in

favour of a new one, DHL. What is

2:22:142:22:18

interesting is what the unions are

-- now saying about it, GMB,

2:22:182:22:25

represent some of the workers who

worked for the previous supplier,

2:22:252:22:28

they say KFC have switched their

contracts to a company which doesn't

2:22:282:22:32

have a track record in this area. --

previous delivery company. It is not

2:22:322:22:38

as simple as delivering a parcel, of

course. The unions are saying that

2:22:382:22:42

DHL new weeks ago that it was going

to struggle with delivery to KFC.

2:22:422:22:48

Because of staffing issues and

driver issues. They're saying that

2:22:482:22:54

KFC and DHL should hold their hands

up and apologised. Actually they

2:22:542:22:59

both have, because KFC have said, we

feel sorry for those who lost their

2:22:592:23:03

jobs at the other supplier but the

decision was not taken lightly. And

2:23:032:23:06

also DHL have created jobs. DHL have

also said, we regret the

2:23:062:23:14

interruption of supply. And we

apologise, they're basically trying

2:23:142:23:18

to sort it out. But it is an

interesting back story of how a

2:23:182:23:23

company that size could have such a

big problem.

A quick word about the

2:23:232:23:28

results from Lloyds?

Yes, their

results are out this morning and

2:23:282:23:34

they are good but what is

interesting is the fact that they

2:23:342:23:37

are still setting aside money for

PPI. £600 million set aside, 18

2:23:372:23:44

billion now they have had to

compensate people, that is a mega

2:23:442:23:48

number!

2:23:482:23:52

Dozens of students and parents

from the Florida high school

2:23:522:23:54

where 17 teenagers and staff members

were killed last week

2:23:542:23:56

will march in the state

capital, Tallahassee,

2:23:562:23:58

later, as part of a campaign

to make schools safer.

2:23:582:24:00

President Trump has indicated he's

willing to ban devices which turn

2:24:002:24:03

rifles into machine guns,

allowing them to fire hundreds

2:24:032:24:05

of bullets in rapid succession.

2:24:052:24:07

Lewis Mizen is a student at Marjory

Stoneman Douglas High School,

2:24:072:24:10

the scene of last week's shooting.

2:24:102:24:18

He told us how his family and

friends have been a source of

2:24:202:24:24

strength.

Yesterday morning I was at

a friend's funeral and that was

2:24:242:24:29

tough but again I'm surrounded by my

friends and by family and the

2:24:292:24:32

community and we are all getting

through it day by day.

You say you

2:24:322:24:35

have already been to a friend's

funeral as well as bass amongst many

2:24:352:24:39

of the other students is there

feeling at the moment that you need

2:24:392:24:42

to channel this energy that you have

for change at the moment, is that

2:24:422:24:48

why there is such a pace about the

way you're going about your business

2:24:482:24:51

at the moment?

We want to try and

get as much done as we can while the

2:24:512:24:56

focus is still on what has happened.

If we take our time to grieve

2:24:562:25:01

quietly on our own, for a few weeks,

then by the time we're ready to come

2:25:012:25:05

back out and try and make a change,

nobody is going to care. So I feel

2:25:052:25:10

like we have really, so is our grief

into anger and into a need to make

2:25:102:25:14

change, and that's what has been so

phenomenal about the movement has a

2:25:142:25:18

whole.

We are waking up to the news

that President Trump has signed this

2:25:182:25:23

order to ban something which turns a

normal weapon into a machine gun. Is

2:25:232:25:28

that a step in the right direction

or is it not enough?

100% a step in

2:25:282:25:38

the right direction and I think it

is fantastic that he is doing it,

2:25:382:25:41

because what I'm worried is

happening to the movement is that it

2:25:412:25:48

is becoming too politicised and too

McGrath versus Republican, and the

2:25:482:25:51

fact that Donald Trump is willing to

show that he is willing to make

2:25:512:25:57

inroads into this issue is

phenomenal. And I hope that this

2:25:572:26:01

does not become political because it

is not a political issue, it is an

2:26:012:26:04

American one and something which

Americans need to be united on, it

2:26:042:26:07

is about the safety of their

children, and the fact that he is

2:26:072:26:10

willing to make a step in the right

direction with this executive order

2:26:102:26:13

I think is fantastic.

You've got an

incredibly busy few days, you're

2:26:132:26:17

taking part in a Town Hall meeting

which is being broadcast live on

2:26:172:26:21

CNN, you are meeting lawmakers today

as well as bass what will be the

2:26:212:26:28

points you are trying to get across

to the lawmakers, and what do you

2:26:282:26:31

want to see achieved by the end of

the process?

Not only do we want to

2:26:312:26:34

talk about mental health care, which

is incredibly important, but we also

2:26:342:26:37

want to talk about why it is easier

for people in Florida to get their

2:26:372:26:42

hands on a semiautomatic weapons,

the same kind of weapon which we

2:26:422:26:46

give to soldiers to go and fight in

wars with, it is easier to get those

2:26:462:26:50

sort of weapons than it is to get a

handgun. I don't know all the

2:26:502:26:54

statistics but I don't know many

school shootings that have been

2:26:542:26:57

carried out by a guy with a handgun.

Most of them occur with these kind

2:26:572:27:04

of weapons of war. And so we really

want to talk to them and try and...

2:27:042:27:07

If Donald Trump is willing to make

inroads then we hope that these

2:27:072:27:10

state legislators will as well. I

have got classmates who have faced

2:27:102:27:15

these bullets from these weapons

head on and if they are not prepared

2:27:152:27:19

to face this problem head-on Ben

Kite Frankie that is ridiculous.

2:27:192:27:22

Once you have done all of this, the

interview is on the TV programmes

2:27:222:27:28

gone in front of the world press,

will you get a chance to stock and

2:27:282:27:32

to grieve, do you think, and how

difficult will that be for you, and

2:27:322:27:36

eventually going back to school as

well?

Well, the tentative start date

2:27:362:27:41

for us going back to school is next

Tuesday, I believe. We're doing a

2:27:412:27:46

half day, and we're also going back

in on Sunday with our families, so

2:27:462:27:50

the kids can feel safe going back to

school for the first time. That is

2:27:502:27:53

good it is easing us back into it.

But, look, Marjory Stoneman Douglas

2:27:532:28:01

is my high school home and I

honestly can't wait to get back.

2:28:012:28:06

What an impressive young man he is.

Very impressive indeed.

2:28:062:28:14

Very impressive indeed. It is time

to find out what's happening

2:28:142:31:34

newsroom in half an hour.

2:31:342:31:36

Plenty more on our website

at the usual address.

2:31:362:31:38

Hello, this is Breakfast

with Dan Walker and Naga Munchetty.

2:31:432:31:50

President Trump has suggested

he could be willing to make some

2:31:502:31:55

changes on gun control laws,

following the school shooting

2:31:552:31:57

in Florida last week.

2:31:572:32:00

He has signed an order to ban

bump-stock devices which turn

2:32:002:32:03

rifles into machine guns.

2:32:032:32:04

They were used by a gunman

who killed 58 Las Vegas

2:32:042:32:07

concert-goers last year.

2:32:072:32:09

Mr Trump says legislation

could be ready "very soon".

2:32:092:32:16

just

could be ready "very soon".

2:32:162:32:16

just a

could be ready "very soon".

2:32:162:32:17

just a few

could be ready "very soon".

2:32:172:32:17

just a few moments

could be ready "very soon".

2:32:172:32:18

just a few moments ago

could be ready "very soon".

2:32:182:32:18

just a few moments ago I

could be ready "very soon".

2:32:182:32:18

just a few moments ago I signed

could be ready "very soon".

2:32:182:32:18

just a few moments ago I signed a

could be ready "very soon".

2:32:182:32:19

just a few moments ago I signed a

memorandum directing the Attorney

2:32:192:32:23

General to oppose regulations to ban

all devices which turned legal

2:32:232:32:26

weapons into machine guns. I expect

that these critical regulations will

2:32:262:32:32

be finalised very soon.

2:32:322:32:36

The bombardment of the rebel-held

Eastern Ghouta by the Syrian

2:32:362:32:39

government and its allies has

continued for a third day,

2:32:392:32:41

prompting the United Nations to warn

of the risk of a second Aleppo.

2:32:412:32:44

Reports suggest around

250 people have died

2:32:442:32:46

following two days of attacks.

2:32:462:32:49

Earlier we spoke to Hamish De

Bretton-Gordon who runs

2:32:492:32:51

Doctors Under Fire, who said

it has been the worst

2:32:512:32:55

violence in the area

for quite some years.

2:32:552:32:59

He is urging world leaders to be

more vocal about the situation.

This

2:32:592:33:04

direct targeting of hospitals and

medical staff is a crime against

2:33:042:33:09

humanity, against every Geneva

Convention and other rule and it is

2:33:092:33:11

being done deliberately to break the

will of the people. The figure of

2:33:112:33:16

200 dead and 1000 injured over the

last 48 hours is probably a massive

2:33:162:33:21

underestimation. It is a living hell

out there. The UN have called for a

2:33:212:33:27

ceasefire, very few world leaders

have stepped forward to do that and

2:33:272:33:30

we know that President Putin holds

the line here and we urge world

2:33:302:33:37

leaders like Donald Trump and

Theresa May, and I will be speaking

2:33:372:33:40

to the Indian Prime Minister on

Friday and asking him and then to

2:33:402:33:44

get involved in this ceasefire which

the Russians could deliver.

2:33:442:33:48

Heavy drinking may be

a major risk factor

2:33:482:33:50

for the early onset of dementia.

2:33:502:33:52

Scientists in France looked

at 57,000 cases of dementia

2:33:522:33:54

in people under 65 -

and found that a third

2:33:542:33:56

could have been caused

by alcohol-related brain damage.

2:33:562:33:58

The Supreme Court is to rule

on whether the Metropolitan Police

2:33:582:34:01

failed two victims of black cab

rapist John Worboys.

2:34:012:34:05

Scotland Yard is appealing

against a previous decision

2:34:052:34:09

that they breached the human rights

of two women whose testimony

2:34:092:34:12

they failed to investigate properly.

2:34:122:34:14

The Metropolitan Police

argues it had practices

2:34:142:34:15

and procedures in place.

2:34:152:34:18

If the ruling is upheld,

this could be a landmark case

2:34:182:34:20

for victim's rights.

2:34:202:34:26

A Liberal Democrat peer has resigned

from his front bench role

2:34:262:34:29

because of allegations

of sexual harassment.

2:34:292:34:30

Lord Lester of Herne Hill will be

investigated by the House

2:34:302:34:33

of Lords Commissioner for Standards.

2:34:332:34:36

He has denied the allegations,

which have been described

2:34:362:34:38

as historical, and says

he will contest them vigorously.

2:34:382:34:43

More than 60 Brexit-supporting

Conservative MPs have written

2:34:432:34:45

to the Prime Minister,

setting out what they believe

2:34:452:34:47

Britain should achieve

from a deal with Brussels.

2:34:472:34:50

The MPs, from the European Research

Group of Tory backbenchers,

2:34:502:34:54

insist that Britain should be free

to negotiate trade deals

2:34:542:34:56

with other countries,

as soon as it leaves the EU.

2:34:562:34:59

Senior ministers will meet tomorrow

to discuss what the government wants

2:34:592:35:02

from the final Brexit deal.

2:35:022:35:05

The Queen has attended

London Fashion Week for the first

2:35:052:35:07

time in her 66-year reign.

2:35:072:35:12

Her Majesty sat in the front row

of up and coming designer

2:35:122:35:18

Richard Quinn's show,

next to the woman often hailed

2:35:182:35:20

as the Queen of Fashion,

Vogue Magazine's Anna Wintour.

2:35:202:35:28

And she seems to be enjoying it.

Why not? There is a picture of

2:35:282:35:35

somebody walking past with a

motorcycle helmet on and she looks

2:35:352:35:38

about quite quizzically but I think

we all would.

2:35:382:35:43

The Zara fashion for every single

day.

2:35:432:35:47

Especially if you do not have a

motor cycle.

2:35:472:35:54

That brings you up to date.

2:35:542:35:56

Nick will have the weather

in ten minutes.

2:35:562:35:58

Here's what else is coming up:

Nicknamed 'The King of Bling'

2:35:582:36:00

by the tabloids for his lavish

lifestyle, we'll be joined

2:36:002:36:03

on the sofa by the former England

international Kieron Dyer,

2:36:032:36:05

who'll talk to us about his

searingly honest autobiography.

2:36:052:36:07

If you are tired of trying to wake

up a teenager for school,

2:36:072:36:10

then there might be good news.

2:36:102:36:12

We'll look at the trial

that is giving youngsters

2:36:122:36:14

a later start at school

which could benefit their

2:36:142:36:16

work and well-being.

2:36:162:36:18

One in ten teenagers

have a mental health problem,

2:36:182:36:21

according to the NHS.

2:36:212:36:22

Now, a new documentary

series explores the impact

2:36:222:36:24

on them and their families.

2:36:242:36:26

We'll speak to one young woman

who was sectioned for 18 months.

2:36:262:36:31

All that still to come.

2:36:312:36:34

But first let's get

the sport with Sonali.

2:36:342:36:39

We have been focusing a lot on the

winter Olympics and we will head

2:36:392:36:43

person but somebody has broken a bit

of a barren patch.

2:36:432:36:47

Who is that guy, never seen him

before!

2:36:472:36:51

Yes, just a quick word on Lionel

Messi, he had never scored against

2:36:512:36:56

Chelsea until last night, an

opportune moment, last 16 match

2:36:562:37:00

between Barcelona and Chelsea at

Stamford Bridge and he denied

2:37:002:37:03

Chelsea by scoring a late equaliser

to make it 1-1.

2:37:032:37:09

Chelsea had the better

of the chances and eventually took

2:37:092:37:11

the lead through Willian,

after he'd twice hit

2:37:112:37:13

the post earlier.

2:37:132:37:17

But the Spanish giants came

on strong in the second half

2:37:172:37:20

and Messi capitalised on a Chelsea

error to make it 1-1 and give

2:37:202:37:23

Barcelona an important away goal

going into the second leg.

2:37:232:37:31

One mistake. But against this type

of opponent, this type of player

2:37:352:37:45

like Lionel Messi, Iniesta, Suarez,

if you make a mistake you pay.

2:37:452:37:52

Phil Neville has named

Chelsea's Anita Asante in his first

2:37:522:37:54

England women's squad.

2:37:542:37:55

Asante, who was last called up

in 2015, was one of several players

2:37:552:37:58

who said they were poorly treated

by previous boss Mark Sampson.

2:37:582:38:03

Injured skipper Steph Houghton has

also been named in the squad

2:38:032:38:05

for the She Believes Cup

which begins next month.

2:38:052:38:13

Time to head over to Pyeongchang.

Yes I bring you news of a cracking a

2:38:172:38:26

win for Great Britain 's female

curlers. They have knocked out the

2:38:262:38:31

defending Olympic champions Canada

in a very tense match. They were

2:38:312:38:35

behind going into the final end but

came through that to win 6-5, very

2:38:352:38:41

close. That denies Canada a medal at

the curling at the Winter games for

2:38:412:38:46

the first time ever. Huge win for

Great Britain's women to make the

2:38:462:38:52

semifinals. Disappointment for the

men on the other hand because they

2:38:522:38:56

had a heavy loss

2:38:562:39:02

had a heavy loss to the USA, 10-4,

conceding four in just the last end.

2:39:042:39:06

They need to come through a play-off

against Switzerland to make the

2:39:062:39:09

semifinals. Work to be done.

2:39:092:39:15

And there was great

news for Billy Morgan

2:39:162:39:18

overnight in "big air" -

pretty obvious why it's called that

2:39:182:39:21

when you look at this!

2:39:212:39:22

The Briton is in Saturday's final

after taking the final

2:39:222:39:24

qualification spot in his heat.

2:39:242:39:26

Jamie Nicholls and Rowan Coultas

missed out though.

2:39:262:39:28

But Lindsay Vonn, the most

successful female downhill skier

2:39:282:39:32

in history, couldn't take the gold

in what looks like her

2:39:322:39:35

final Olympic games.

2:39:352:39:36

The American earned bronze,

with Italy's Sofia Goggia

2:39:362:39:38

taking top spot.

2:39:382:39:46

Lindsey Vonn says her bronze medal

today felt like she had won the

2:39:532:39:57

title.

It was intense and I think

mostly it was intense because I just

2:39:572:40:02

wanted to win for my grandpa. It is

hard to process this is my Olympic

2:40:022:40:13

downhill race that will be my last.

I want to keep racing forever but I

2:40:132:40:17

can no longer do that.

Knowing your

family they be so pleased and happy

2:40:172:40:27

read out there did that.

I hope

so...

2:40:272:40:36

so...

Elise Christie crashed in the

semifinals of the 1500 metres and

2:40:382:40:41

entered her ankle and was

stretchered off, she crashed in her

2:40:412:40:45

first race as well, last night she

strapped up her ankle and was

2:40:452:40:50

determined to compete in the 1000

metres but had a fall and a false

2:40:502:40:55

start, restarted the race, battled

her way to the semifinals but

2:40:552:41:02

unfortunately she was disqualified,

given a yellow card for two

2:41:022:41:05

violations according to the judges

and this is what she had to say.

I

2:41:052:41:11

worked so hard to come back from

this injury. I think 1000 people

2:41:112:41:16

would not have skated with my ankle

the way it was. I can barely bend my

2:41:162:41:20

knee. The only thing I can say is I

can promise I will fight back from

2:41:202:41:26

this and I will come back for

Beijing. And hopefully I can do

2:41:262:41:32

Britain proud then. Elise Christie

the personification of Olympic grit

2:41:322:41:40

and determination. Speaking of which

I am joined by Penny Coomes and Nick

2:41:402:41:45

Buckland who have bounced back from

adversity a few times to come 11th

2:41:452:41:49

in yesterday's free dance, 11

overall after what has been a

2:41:492:41:56

monumental battle just to get here.

I want to start with your state

2:41:562:42:00

itself because you were pleased with

the performance, the music stopped

2:42:002:42:04

and you punched the air.

I have not

performed before and felt like I

2:42:042:42:10

wanted to do that. There have always

been things I could look back on and

2:42:102:42:13

think maybe we could have done that

better but I felt we had owed a

2:42:132:42:17

great skate and we got on Olympic

ice and our Olympic moment finished

2:42:172:42:20

like that so I was pleased.

Then

your face fell a little on the

2:42:202:42:25

scores came in because it was not

what you had hoped for?

No, it

2:42:252:42:31

wasn't and that was really

disappointing because we felt we put

2:42:312:42:33

out our best. We don't feel it was

reflected in the scores but there

2:42:332:42:38

are some things which are out of our

control and what we could control we

2:42:382:42:42

did very well and we are pleased

with ourselves.

That was yesterday,

2:42:422:42:47

you have had a night to reflect, I

remember talking to you straight

2:42:472:42:51

afterwards and it was a bittersweet

ending a two-year Olympic journey to

2:42:512:42:55

get there, do you feel more positive

now you had some sleep?

I really do,

2:42:552:43:02

I spent some time working on social

media and I was crying because I was

2:43:022:43:06

overwhelmed by the positive response

I received from the British public

2:43:062:43:10

and people around the world. When I

heard myself I wanted to come back

2:43:102:43:15

and be an inspiration so thank you

to everyone playing the national

2:43:152:43:18

lottery because you all got me back

here and I am so thankful to be back

2:43:182:43:22

and have all your messages of

support. I wanted to be an

2:43:222:43:26

inspiration and I feel like I am.

You definitely are?

20 months ago

2:43:262:43:36

you shattered kneecap into eight

pieces in training. At that point

2:43:362:43:40

did you think you would ever be at

an Olympics again?

No, quite simply.

2:43:402:43:45

I just remember the pain went numb

and I remember crying and the

2:43:452:43:52

paramedics asked if I was in pain

and I just said I was sad. At that

2:43:522:43:58

moment I did not think it would

happen but I'm so lucky to have the

2:43:582:44:01

support of team I have and nick got

me through everything.

All over the

2:44:012:44:08

verb is it going to be, the World

Championships next month, will you

2:44:082:44:14

be going there? And how about

Beijing, how about retirement?

We

2:44:142:44:19

will sit down and talk about

everything after the World

2:44:192:44:22

Championships, our focus is one step

at a time. We have four weeks to

2:44:222:44:26

prepare for the World Championships

and give it everything we've got. We

2:44:262:44:29

do not do anything by half so we

will sit down and make sure we can

2:44:292:44:33

improve on these performances to

make sure we do something at the

2:44:332:44:37

World Championships. That is the

next goal.

And what about getting

2:44:372:44:42

married and having babies because we

are relying on you to to breed the

2:44:422:44:46

next generation for Great Britain?

Have you been talking to my mum? She

2:44:462:44:53

has already started knitting clothes

for her unborn grandchildren. I feel

2:44:532:44:57

like we have skipped over the

marriage thing and gone straight to

2:44:572:45:01

the children. We will see!

It has

been talked about by the mums since

2:45:012:45:07

we finished the free dance.

Eugh no

pressure! We just rely on you! Watch

2:45:072:45:13

this space. Hopefully we'll have an

Olympic proposal by the end of the

2:45:132:45:20

games.

2:45:202:45:20

Get on with your knitting! See you

later! Very good. Nick will update

2:45:272:45:35

us shortly. Getting colder in the

coming days although with sunshine

2:45:352:45:39

around. It's 8:45am.

2:45:392:45:42

One in ten teenagers

have a mental health problem.

2:45:422:45:44

According to the NHS,

there has been a 68 % rise

2:45:442:45:47

in hospital admissions relating

to self-harm among young teenage

2:45:472:45:49

girls in the past decade.

2:45:492:45:50

Now, a new documentary

called Girls on the Edge

2:45:502:45:52

follows the journey of three

families whose young daughters have

2:45:522:45:55

been sectioned under

the Mental Health Act.

2:45:552:45:58

In a moment we'll be speaking

to Jade and her mother

2:45:582:46:02

Good morning to you, lovely to have

you on the programme --

2:46:022:46:08

about the impact that had

on their family.

2:46:082:46:10

But first, let's take

a look at a clip of Jade

2:46:102:46:12

when she was in a secure unit.

2:46:122:46:14

what about your mental health, have

you been diagnosed.

Yes. Schizoid

2:46:142:46:21

personality disorder. It's a bit of

a complicated one. I don't

2:46:212:46:25

understand it myself. For me it just

means thinking things that may not

2:46:252:46:31

necessarily be true, like paranoid

or delusional thoughts. I don't

2:46:312:46:38

trust my own mind.

2:46:382:46:41

Jade and her Mum Claire join

us now on the sofa.

2:46:412:46:44

Thank you so much for talking about

this.

2:46:442:46:49

Jade, when did you realise you were

not feeling yourself?

It has been a

2:46:492:46:54

long time. I didn't really have one

specific moment. There is a saying

2:46:542:47:00

that you smile with your eyes, and

when I looked in the mirror I was

2:47:002:47:07

doing my make Obama could not see

the smile in my eyes, that was wrong

2:47:072:47:11

because normally I am good at faking

it even to myself so to see that was

2:47:112:47:14

a shock.

What the documentary does

is follow your journey over a period

2:47:142:47:21

of six to seven months in the unit.

How are you now?

I am OK. Taking

2:47:212:47:30

each day...

You are out of the unit

now.

2:47:302:47:38

now.

I see stuff about three times a

day to access medication. They

2:47:422:47:49

support me with anything that I need

to.

You have moved on, that is a

2:47:492:47:56

good thing because one thing we see

in the documentary with the families

2:47:562:48:00

is, obviously the realisation that

their daughters need help. You say

2:48:002:48:04

that you realise this as well that

you either want them to come home or

2:48:042:48:09

be independent and they can't be at

that moment, and that is very tough.

2:48:092:48:16

Very tough. It is hard to imagine

your child in a hospital when you

2:48:162:48:21

don't have any control over what

they do, you can just go and visit

2:48:212:48:24

them...

What is searingly honest is

that you ask questions about what

2:48:242:48:33

you did on the journey, what did you

miss your daughter to end up in that

2:48:332:48:38

unit.

I missed being family unit. I

missed having her around. It is very

2:48:382:48:45

very difficult, very difficult place

to be. You could not begin to

2:48:452:48:52

imagine it come you've got two

different lives going on there, you

2:48:522:48:56

want her to be home, and you can't

come you just have to live that

2:48:562:49:01

other life.

How hard was it for you

to get the care that Jade needed?

It

2:49:012:49:10

was very difficult, we were

literally crying out for help. We

2:49:102:49:14

need someone now, we need Jade to go

into hospital and that was a real

2:49:142:49:22

breaking point because I realised

when I was coming out that Jade

2:49:222:49:26

really needed help. It was hard for

me to accept leaving her in a

2:49:262:49:32

hospital where I had no say in her

care. In a difficult.

I can see that

2:49:322:49:38

no eat that you explain it to us as

a mum. When we talk about these

2:49:382:49:44

things we are aware that there is an

audience out there who might be

2:49:442:49:47

going through something similar, is

there any advice you can give to

2:49:472:49:54

someone watching this this morning?

Just communicate, talk to people,

2:49:542:50:01

whether speaking, writing it or

using pictures, just communicate,

2:50:012:50:08

using pictures, people that you

trust. I can't stress enough how

2:50:082:50:11

important that is. Such a simple

thing but it makes such a

2:50:112:50:16

difference.

Jade, you had to agree

to being filmed. If you are already

2:50:162:50:23

struggling to recognise what was

wrong, or what you find difficult

2:50:232:50:27

with life, for cameras to be pushed

in your face and documentary makers

2:50:272:50:32

to be around you, and for your most

raw moments... What made you decide

2:50:322:50:43

to say yes?

2:50:432:50:48

Even though there is more awareness

now in the last couple of years,

2:50:532:50:57

it's not enough.

Why are people

scared to talk, why is there not

2:50:572:51:06

enough awareness?

I think they are

scared of other people's reactions,

2:51:062:51:11

you can see consequences of mental

health but you cannot see what is

2:51:112:51:17

going on in someone's head. So it is

almost very real for that person for

2:51:172:51:23

me and many others, because other

people cannot see it it is almost as

2:51:232:51:28

if it does not exist. So some people

just don't see it.

In terms of hopes

2:51:282:51:40

for the future are you able to look

weeks and months ahead or

2:51:402:51:45

day-to-day?

Day at the moment, it is

more hourly to be honest. But I want

2:51:452:51:54

to go into teaching eventually, to

try to give back to the teachers

2:51:542:51:57

that helped me.

2:51:572:52:03

that helped me.

Claire, do you feel

at the door to you knew before the

2:52:032:52:06

mental illness struck is coming back

to you?

Slowly, yes, definitely.

You

2:52:062:52:13

are very close, we saw, Jade, you

just grabbed your mum's hand... That

2:52:132:52:20

is what mum'ss for? It was great to

have you both on the programme. If

2:52:202:52:27

you would like to see more,

2:52:272:52:30

Girls on the Edge is

on BBC Two, tomorrow at 9pm.

2:52:302:52:35

a really interesting insight into

what they have been going through.

2:52:352:52:39

And as Jade says, if this has struck

a chord, please talk to someone.

2:52:392:52:43

Here's Nick with a look

at this morning's weather.

2:52:432:52:47

Here's Nick with a look

at this morning's weather.

2:52:472:52:50

Good morning, I've found some

sunshine, the weather watchers will

2:52:502:52:54

be watching our weather closely as

it turns bitterly cold for some time

2:52:542:52:58

next week, gradually getting colder

day by day as we head towards the

2:52:582:53:03

weekend. A lot of fine, dry weather

to come with high pressure and

2:53:032:53:06

control, see the cloud moving around

the area of high pressure, this

2:53:062:53:10

cloud has been pushing into England

and Wales which has been producing

2:53:102:53:13

drizzle here and there, maybe some

light showers, it is more likely

2:53:132:53:17

that things start cloudy and begin

to brighten up a little. Some

2:53:172:53:23

showers at the breath of wind, slow

to clear, in Scotland the default

2:53:232:53:27

patch with good sunny spells coming

through later. Temperatures after

2:53:272:53:32

yesterday when some areas were in

double figures, it's more like six

2:53:322:53:36

to nine Celsius, a gradual step down

this weekend as the code is slowly

2:53:362:53:41

moves in. It will be colder tonight

because the more breaks in the

2:53:412:53:47

cloud, more and showing on the map,

that is the clear whether it is, and

2:53:472:53:51

overnight light winds drop to give

fast, and again they will be

2:53:512:53:57

freezing fog patches around,

temperatures close to below freezing

2:53:572:54:02

as well.

2:54:022:54:07

as well. Frost with fog patches and

sunny spells, breeze picking up the

2:54:072:54:11

little in

2:54:112:54:17

little in northern Scotland, another

dry day with four Dexter showing up

2:54:172:54:21

in the temperatures today so slowly

going down. More of a breeze to the

2:54:212:54:29

south and the south and west, more

in the way of sunshine, less in the

2:54:292:54:34

cloud and the vast majority will be

dry.

2:54:342:54:37

cloud and the vast majority will be

dry.

2:54:372:54:42

dry. High-pressure in control,

that's a generally settled picture,

2:54:422:54:45

we are looking at dry weather,

around the high-pressure coming in

2:54:452:54:49

for the east of the south-east,

again some cold directions or the

2:54:492:54:53

chillblain chilly breeze, more

clutter and is in Scotland on

2:54:532:55:01

Sunday, this is the forecast which

gives a flavour of the whole of the

2:55:012:55:04

UK as temperatures are stepping down

if few degrees and the winds are

2:55:042:55:08

picking up as well. The weekend

picture looks dry, quite a lot of

2:55:082:55:14

sunshine, the breeze picking up now

so it will feel chillier and they

2:55:142:55:18

will be frosty nights as well, so

the bitter air looks like still

2:55:182:55:22

moving in for a time next week, with

a chance of snow showers. Not

2:55:222:55:28

everyone will see that but it looks

as if debris will be going out on a

2:55:282:55:33

very cold note indeed. We'll keep

you updated on that -- as of

2:55:332:55:37

February will be going out on a very

cold

2:55:372:55:40

February will be going out on a very

cold note indeed.

2:55:402:55:40

February will be going out on a very

cold note indeed. Thank you, Nick.

2:55:402:55:49

There's a call for a dog DNA

database to be established to help

2:55:532:55:56

catch animals suspected

of killing livestock.

2:55:562:55:58

The National Police Chief's council

also wants to be able

2:55:582:56:00

to search properties and confiscate

dogs that reoffend

2:56:002:56:02

from their owners.

2:56:022:56:03

Breakfast's John Maguire

is on a farm in North Wales and has

2:56:032:56:06

more detail for us this morning.

2:56:062:56:07

The scenery is beautiful John but so

many people get into contact with

2:56:072:56:10

the programme and thank you for

highlighting the issue today.

It

2:56:102:56:13

really is a big issue.

2:56:132:56:17

You'll follow farmers on social

media and talk to the farmers and

2:56:172:56:21

sheep farmers and they will tell you

it is a very real problem. The

2:56:212:56:26

scenery is absolutely stunning cure.

We are just above the village of

2:56:262:56:31

Llanfairfechan, the Menai Strait

just below, we 1000 feet high. The

2:56:312:56:36

views on the hills, the sheep have

been lower in the winter months and

2:56:362:56:39

have now come back up to graze on

higher ground. They will be

2:56:392:56:43

pregnant. Imagine if the dog escaped

from a garden and got off its lead,

2:56:432:56:48

and these animals, it might

physically attack them, bite them,

2:56:482:56:53

or by distressing them and chasing

them, the sheep could lose their

2:56:532:56:57

lambs. They could lose their

pregnancies. A real problem for

2:56:572:57:04

farmers, not just livestock farmers

at this time of year and this is why

2:57:042:57:08

the Council of the national police

chief has decided to recommend

2:57:082:57:11

things to try to tackle this

problem.

2:57:112:57:19

problem.

Only 16 but Alfie is

learning about the harsh to egg

2:57:192:57:22

harsh realities of farming after two

of his pedigree sheep were attacked

2:57:222:57:26

by a dog. The Harry and family graze

their sheep on the South Downs and

2:57:262:57:31

have had several incidents.

It's

that through two and I am still

2:57:312:57:36

concerned about. It is very

upsetting. The trauma that the sheep

2:57:362:57:40

have gone through, as we say, we

won't know quite yet how much this

2:57:402:57:46

has impacted. But it's not the first

incidence we have had. We have had

2:57:462:57:53

two or four throughout the year.

I

went up there, dogs of the lead, if

2:57:532:57:58

you ask them nicely to put their dog

on the lead, they say, oh, my doc

2:57:582:58:02

won't do that, and they want to do

it.

This video shows the dog chasing

2:58:022:58:10

the ewes before biting them and days

later it returned. So it is about

2:58:102:58:16

taking DNA samples. Sergeant Tom

Carter started using forensic

2:58:162:58:21

science to tackle the problem.

We

were robbed at around the wound with

2:58:212:58:26

a dog has attacked the sheep, but it

back in the tube, -- we were rubbed

2:58:262:58:32

that, send it to the lab and if we

can match it to a dog will take a

2:58:322:58:35

swab from the dog and manage the

samples.

The most senior officers,

2:58:352:58:42

the National Police Chiefs Council

has published a report calling for a

2:58:422:58:46

DNA database of dogs suspected of an

attack. And once a law to force

2:58:462:58:50

owners to fix leads in livestock

areas and other sanctions possibly

2:58:502:58:57

using Crown Courts, not just

magistrates.

We have put various

2:58:572:59:02

recommendations in that we have the

various legislators will take heed

2:59:022:59:05

of and work with us to improve the

situation.

Although current police

2:59:052:59:12

chiefs say the law is inadequate it

does allow farmers to shoot animals

2:59:122:59:18

and attacking livestock so reducing

these incidents would relieve the

2:59:182:59:21

suffering, and the stress, not just

on farmers but also on dog owners.

2:59:212:59:30

Stats from five forces across rural

Britain found 92 instances where

2:59:312:59:36

dogs had been shot, distressing and

also for the dog owners as well.

2:59:362:59:40

Gareth Wyn Jones, you are a familiar

face on BBC Breakfast. This is a

2:59:402:59:45

real issue for you and your

colleagues. You are aware of its

2:59:452:59:48

daily pretty much.

2:59:482:59:54

I am seeing a lot of it on social

media. It's quite frightening, these

2:59:542:59:59

animals flock together so when they

are disturbed like that it can

2:59:593:00:03

stretch them out. So even if you are

just taking the dog for a walk

3:00:033:00:08

through livestock make sure it is on

the lead at all time. It's so

3:00:083:00:11

important to get that message out

there. Education is the way forward.

3:00:113:00:16

For both us as farmers, we want

people to come and visit this

3:00:163:00:20

beautiful countryside and enjoy it

but they have to respect it. It's a

3:00:203:00:24

rest both ways. I do not want to be

going out there shooting dogs, I own

3:00:243:00:32

dogs, I love dogs, I want to see

people enjoying the countryside with

3:00:323:00:35

her pets. We are very lucky here

with a fantastic North Wales rural

3:00:353:00:42

police team which are doing a great

job so let's all work together and

3:00:423:00:48

hopefully will have a happy

countryside.

Thank you very much for

3:00:483:00:51

your time this morning. Talking

about a bit of snow next week in the

3:00:513:00:56

weather, the top of the mountains

here in North Wales you can see

3:00:563:01:00

there is still snow on the ground.

It is cold up here. It's a hard life

3:01:003:01:05

for these sheep so this is the last

thing that anyone trying to make a

3:01:053:01:09

living here wants. One of the cases

the police report talks about

3:01:093:01:13

Founder had lost £20,000 -- found a

farmer had lost £20,000 in incidents

3:01:133:01:22

topped about.

This will be a relief to lots of

3:01:223:01:28

them trying to protect their living

and their livestock 's. Talking

3:01:283:01:33

about Shepards, early risers, just

like us.

3:01:333:01:37

What would you consider a lion? --

Eli in?

3:01:373:01:45

I find if I spend too much time in

bed I get a sore back. I'm not used

3:01:453:01:51

to it.

My young lad will be up very early.

3:01:513:01:56

What do you consider a lie in?

About 630. We are talking about this

3:01:563:02:09

because there is talk about

teenagers.

3:02:093:02:20

Why can't teenagers

get up in the morning?

3:02:223:02:24

Are they just being lazy?

3:02:243:02:26

My teenage son Harry

and I are going to do

3:02:273:02:29

an experiment to compare

which

3:02:293:02:30

time of day our brains are most

alert, morning or evening.

3:02:303:02:33

7am and it's time

for the morning test.

3:02:333:02:36

Three, two, one, go.

3:02:363:02:41

Under time pressure

we have to respond to the

3:02:413:02:43

direction of arrows on the screen.

3:02:433:02:45

Are you feeling bright eyed

and bushy tailed, Harry?

3:02:453:02:47

No, not really.

3:02:473:02:49

8:30pm, and time for

the evening rematch.

3:02:493:02:51

Are you ready?

3:02:513:02:52

Yeah.

3:02:523:02:54

OK.

3:02:543:02:55

Oh, I got that wrong.

3:02:553:02:58

I might as well be a pro gamer.

3:02:583:03:00

So how did Harry and I compare?

3:03:003:03:02

For reaction time, both

of us were faster in the

3:03:023:03:05

evening.

3:03:053:03:07

And for our ability to ignore

distractions, both of us were

3:03:073:03:10

better in the morning.

3:03:103:03:11

But for one important

measure, our ability to

3:03:113:03:16

shift focus quickly in response

to the arrow, we are complete

3:03:163:03:18

opposites.

3:03:183:03:20

I did much better in the morning

while Harry did better in

3:03:203:03:23

the evening.

3:03:233:03:26

So his brain really does seem

to work on a different

3:03:263:03:28

daily rhythm from mine.

3:03:283:03:34

Remember those days?

3:03:343:03:37

One school has already experimented

with a late start for its pupils.

3:03:373:03:40

Breakfast's Graham Satchell

is there for us this morning.

3:03:403:03:43

Good morning, yes we are at Hampton

Court house where the A-level

3:03:463:03:50

students have been starting at 1pm

for the last three years because

3:03:503:03:55

they completely believe and get what

is now science about the teenage

3:03:553:04:00

brain. Let's go and chat to some of

the students, we have got them who

3:04:003:04:05

are doing A-levels. Tell me the

different seas being made to you

3:04:053:04:11

being able to get up later in the

morning?

In my GCSE year I got up at

3:04:113:04:18

six every day and I would come into

school relate tired and I could not

3:04:183:04:22

concentrate back now I am so much

more awake and I can concentrate, I

3:04:223:04:27

feel alert and ready to learn. It's

quite great.

And what about you?

I

3:04:273:04:34

used to wake up at seven to go to my

old school and in order to make sure

3:04:343:04:39

I was awake I needed to cycle to

school to raise my heart rate to

3:04:393:04:44

such a degree there was enough

oxygen going to my brain.

What was

3:04:443:04:48

it like waking up at seven?

It was

dark and groggy and I could not

3:04:483:04:53

concentrate in lessons after ten

o'clock. Because I was just quite

3:04:533:05:02

tired.

It made a difference.

It has

made a difference.

Do you think you

3:05:023:05:09

are less grumpy?

Yes, I am more

awake so I can listen to other

3:05:093:05:15

people, I don't get easily

irritated, it's good all round.

3:05:153:05:19

Thank you very much, we will have a

quick chat to the head here, the

3:05:193:05:24

science is settled on all of this,

scientists are sure the teenage

3:05:243:05:28

brain does act differently. Let me

quickly ask you what you would say

3:05:283:05:32

to other schools thinking about this

because there are logistical

3:05:323:05:35

practical problems?

I think it's

incumbent on all school leaders, all

3:05:353:05:42

headteachers and governing bodies at

the very least to be informed about

3:05:423:05:46

the research and the findings. We

all have the children's well-being

3:05:463:05:50

at the heart of all that we do as

educators. Then it is for them to

3:05:503:05:55

make practical decisions as to what

is best. Life is not the dress

3:05:553:06:00

rehearsal, you get one chance of

being a teenager so why not create

3:06:003:06:02

the optimal conditions for teens to

study? It requires a can-do attitude

3:06:023:06:09

from school leaders across the

country.

Quickly, people getting in

3:06:093:06:15

touch seeing if you do change it it

does not prepare them for the life

3:06:153:06:18

of work where they have to start at

nine o'clock?

This is why it's

3:06:183:06:22

important to read the evidence, the

circadian shift reaches its peak in

3:06:223:06:29

men at at the age of 21, slightly

younger in women. After that, the

3:06:293:06:34

discrepancy between your body clock

and the teenage body clock is about

3:06:343:06:38

two hours but after the peak it

reverts back to societal norms. So

3:06:383:06:44

we are accommodating these teens

working pattern is only for these

3:06:443:06:49

precious years when there is so much

work, developmental work taking

3:06:493:06:52

place within the brain. Learning is

a physical biological process and it

3:06:523:06:57

is incumbent on us as leaders to

create the best conditions for teens

3:06:573:07:01

to learn.

Thanks. GCSE students,

schools should also consider

3:07:013:07:09

starting later in the day, will it

happen, will they be able to manage

3:07:093:07:14

the timetable? That is much more

tricky but with that, it's back to

3:07:143:07:18

you.

I glad I'm not to school this

3:07:183:07:24

afternoon.

Kieron Dyer will be here to talk

3:07:243:07:27

about his autobiography but let's

get

3:07:273:09:04

with the lunchtime news at 1:30pm,

until then, enjoy the

3:09:043:09:06

rest of your morning.

3:09:063:09:09

As a kid Kieron Dyer

had two big dreams.

3:09:173:09:19

One was to play for England

the other was to own a Ferrari.

3:09:193:09:23

He did both.

3:09:233:09:30

Yeah I did. Ferrari, the money that

was in the game, it was always the

3:09:313:09:37

dream and I was not afraid to splash

the cash ends been called the King

3:09:373:09:43

of bling.

And you have no written

this book, I think yours is a bit of

3:09:433:09:49

different because you are honest

about some of the mistakes you made

3:09:493:09:52

and things you would do differently.

Maybe in light of what we have seen

3:09:523:09:55

in recent months you spoke quite

openly about the abuse she suffered

3:09:553:09:59

as a young man, was it a hard

decision to put that in there?

It

3:09:593:10:05

was, it was a secret for 20 years, I

was 11, 12 years old and I thought I

3:10:053:10:10

had dealt with the abuse by myself.

But I did not realise it blighted my

3:10:103:10:15

life for 20 years because of the

character it forms, the distrusting

3:10:153:10:21

person.

Who made you realise that

was contributing to your character?

3:10:213:10:31

Know one, it was just by chance,

Joey Barton, we were at QPR and he

3:10:313:10:35

worked with a counsellor and I went

to speak to him and it all came

3:10:353:10:42

pouring out and he recognised my

mannerisms, stuff like that. Not

3:10:423:10:47

giving eye contact, stuff like that.

It helped me correct the wrong site

3:10:473:10:52

had been doing.

Was it a relief,

once you started talking about it

3:10:523:10:57

and you realised the way you are

acting and feeling was closely

3:10:573:11:00

linked to that, did that...? Ill mac

it was, when I started telling my

3:11:003:11:06

family and friends the penny

dropped. It was a relief to me.

When

3:11:063:11:12

it came out it ripped my family

apart for a bit because they saw the

3:11:123:11:15

signs of my uncle who abused me so

they started feeling guilty, we

3:11:153:11:20

found out someone else in the family

was abused as well. I can see why

3:11:203:11:26

people keep the secrets because it

can rip families apart. My family

3:11:263:11:30

are now adjusting to it.

It cannot

be underestimated how important it

3:11:303:11:36

is for public figures to show they

are human I suppose. They can be

3:11:363:11:42

victims just as much as enjoy

successes in life. Knowing you have

3:11:423:11:47

done that has also meant you are

able to address some of the shall we

3:11:473:11:52

say less favourable stories, facts

maybe, documentation of your life as

3:11:523:11:59

a footballer, as the king of bling

so to speak. Do you understand or do

3:11:593:12:04

you think, what role do you think

you played in the image of football

3:12:043:12:08

and the image of young, successful,

talented yet perhaps unsavoury

3:12:083:12:15

characters in football, do you

recognise how that has been

3:12:153:12:17

perceived?

Yeah and I would like to

state what happened to me is a kid

3:12:173:12:23

was on the reason why some of the

stuff I did was, I'm not going to

3:12:233:12:28

blame that because we are young

kids. My mum raised me on

3:12:283:12:39

kids. My mum raised me on my -- her

own, millionaire overnight, then you

3:12:403:12:42

get put on a pedestal, attention and

wealth, celebrity. I lost track of

3:12:423:12:48

being a footballer. I thought I was

a celebrity first and a footballer

3:12:483:12:51

second and that is why in the book I

am being positive, I lost track, as

3:12:513:12:56

were the mistakes came from.

Was

ever anyone who came up and said

3:12:563:13:01

what are you doing? You are throwing

away what could be a fantastic

3:13:013:13:05

career by concentrating on this

rather than this?

You have had him

3:13:053:13:10

on this couch, Graeme Souness came

and said, he said when he finished

3:13:103:13:15

football he did look himself in the

mirror and say he gave his all,

3:13:153:13:19

could you? We started laughing

because that would never be the

3:13:193:13:21

truth and I started to wise up then.

He threatened to smack you didn't

3:13:213:13:28

he?

Yeah, first month at the club,

he turned around and said if we have

3:13:283:13:34

to do this again I will knock you

out. No coincidence....

Doesn't work

3:13:343:13:41

for everyone but at least it worked

for you! The book is very different

3:13:413:13:46

to a lot of footballers

autobiographies and very insightful

3:13:463:13:49

and honest, so thank you for coming

on to talk to us.

3:13:493:13:52

If you would like to know more.

3:13:523:13:56

Kieron Dyer's book is called

Old Too Soon, Smart Too Late.

3:13:563:14:01

Coming up next we have live coverage

of the Winter Olympic South Clare

3:14:013:14:05

Balding. Let's leave you with some

spectacular scenery of North Wales

3:14:053:14:10

this morning, enjoy that and enjoy

the rest of your day. Goodbye.
