Hello - this is Breakfast,

with Dan Walker and Louise Minchin.

0:00:020:00:08

An emergency meeting

of the government's Cobra committee

0:00:080:00:10

into the suspected poisoning

of a Russia spy and his daughter.

0:00:100:00:13

The pair remain critically

ill in hospital -

0:00:130:00:16

counter-terrorism police have now

taken over the investigation.

0:00:160:00:24

Good morning - it's

Wednesday 7 March.

0:00:340:00:35

Also this morning:

0:00:350:00:39

Lunch with the Queen and talks

with the Prime Minister -

0:00:390:00:42

Saudi's Crown prince arrives

in Britain amid protests

0:00:420:00:45

about his human rights record

0:00:450:00:47

A crackdown on ticket resale

websites - the advertising watchdog

0:00:470:00:50

says firms must be upfront

about the real costs

0:00:500:00:52

of going to a concert.

0:00:520:00:58

European leaders are meeting today

to discuss Donald Trump

0:00:580:01:01

and his trade war tweets -

I'll explain what it means for us

0:01:010:01:04

later.

0:01:040:01:06

In sport, Liverpool

are the first British team

0:01:060:01:08

through to the last

0:01:080:01:12

eight of the Champions League.

0:01:120:01:13

They'll be joined by holders

Real Madrid, who beat

0:01:130:01:15

Paris Saint Germain 5-2 aggregate.

0:01:150:01:18

And Carol has the weather.

0:01:180:01:24

Today's the day of sunshine and

showers. Some the showers will be

0:01:240:01:28

heavy and across northern and

western Scotland, also wintry for a

0:01:280:01:32

time but a lot of dry weather

however this time tomorrow morning

0:01:320:01:36

we could see some more snow across

parts of Wales, the Midlands and

0:01:360:01:40

Lincolnshire.

0:01:400:01:41

Good morning.

0:01:410:01:42

First, our main story.

0:01:420:01:43

The Home Secretary will chair

a emergency meeting

0:01:430:01:45

of the Government's COBRA committee

this morning to discuss

0:01:450:01:47

the suspected poisoning of a former

Russian agent and his daughter.

0:01:470:01:54

Sergei and Yulia Skripal

are still in a critical condition

0:01:540:01:56

after being found unconscious

on Sunday in Salisbury.

0:01:560:01:59

Russia has denied any wrongdoing,

but the Foreign Secretary Boris

0:01:590:02:01

Johnson has warned of 'robust'

action should the Kremlin be found

0:02:010:02:04

to be involved.

0:02:040:02:05

Tom Burridge reports.

0:02:050:02:11

Uncomfortable questions linger

here in Wiltshire where a former

0:02:110:02:13

Russian agent and his

daughter were struck down

0:02:130:02:21

on Sunday afternoon.

0:02:210:02:25

Yulia Skripal lives in Russia

and was visiting her father,

0:02:250:02:28

Sergei, in Salisbury.

0:02:280:02:29

This CCTV footage shows

them just half an hour

0:02:290:02:32

before locals alerted the police

that they were unconscious

0:02:320:02:35

on a park bench.

0:02:350:02:43

Sergei Skripal was an officer

in Russian military intelligence

0:02:460:02:48

but in 2004 he was arrested

and later convicted

0:02:480:02:51

for working for MI6.

0:02:510:02:52

In 2010, he was handed over

to Britain as part of a spy swap.

0:02:520:02:56

The Russian government said

suggestions it was involved

0:02:560:03:00

are completely untrue but the murder

in London in 2006

0:03:000:03:04

of former Russian spy

Alexander Litvinenko means suspicion

0:03:040:03:06

is almost inevitable

0:03:060:03:07

and the ramifications

for Russian-UK relations are huge.

0:03:070:03:09

Should evidence emerge of state

responsibility than Her Majesty 's

0:03:170:03:21

government will respond

appropriately and prop the cash

0:03:210:03:23

robust leap. And implications are

huge.

0:03:230:03:28

If Russia is behind it,

it means they are taking thimgs

0:03:280:03:31

to a whole new level.

0:03:310:03:33

This is in fact a kind

of declaration of war.

0:03:330:03:35

Experts at this military research

centre have been trying to work out

0:03:350:03:39

whether toxic substances

were used to try to kill

0:03:390:03:41

a former Russian agent

and his daughter,

0:03:410:03:43

who are now in hospital

fighting to stay alive.

0:03:430:03:46

We'll be getting the very latest

with our correspondents in Moscow

0:03:460:03:49

and at the scene in Salisbury

later in the programme.

0:03:490:03:51

The Chancellor Phillip Hammond

will today outline his vision

0:03:510:03:54

of an EU free trade deal

for the financial services sector

0:03:540:03:57

after Brexit, despite

a difference of opinion

0:03:570:03:59

with European negotiators.

0:03:590:04:01

Mr Hammond is expected

to use his speech in London to focus

0:04:010:04:04

on an agreement which he says

will be of mutual interest

0:04:040:04:07

to both parties.

0:04:070:04:08

We can speak now to our Political

Correspondent Jonathan Blake

0:04:080:04:11

who joins us live from Westminster.

0:04:110:04:19

How much do you know about what is

in the speech on how significant is

0:04:190:04:23

it?

It is significant because if you

consider your bank, your insurance

0:04:230:04:28

company, your accountant if you have

one, the financial services sector

0:04:280:04:33

in the UK is huge, employing about 2

million people and is worth £125

0:04:330:04:38

billion to the UK economy. No

surprise that ministers are trying

0:04:380:04:42

to protect it and make sure those

companies can continue to do

0:04:420:04:46

business freely across the UK after

Brexit and they don't leave, taking

0:04:460:04:51

jobs and business. The question is,

financial services be included in a

0:04:510:04:56

free-trade agreement struck with the

EU after Brexit? The chancellor says

0:04:560:05:02

yes and it makes sense for the EU

and the UK. But the EU's chief

0:05:020:05:09

negotiator says it can't be done, it

doesn't exist but the Chancellor

0:05:090:05:12

pointed out in response that the EU

itself has tried to include

0:05:120:05:18

financial services in a free-trade

agreement before with the US and

0:05:180:05:22

Canada city aspiration is there on

our part.

0:05:220:05:29

Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince,

Mohammed Bin Salman,

0:05:290:05:32

is beginning a three-day

visit to Britain.

0:05:320:05:34

He'll have lunch with the Queen

and hold talks with the Prime

0:05:340:05:37

Minister.

0:05:370:05:37

The Government regards

Saudi Arabia as an important

0:05:370:05:40

strategic ally but protest marches

are planned by campaign

0:05:400:05:42

groups angered by the war

in Yemen, where the Kingdom

0:05:420:05:45

is fighting rebels.

0:05:450:05:46

Here's our security

correspondent Frank Gardner:

0:05:460:05:50

Embarking on his first foreign trip

since becoming Crown Prince, Saudi

0:05:500:05:56

Arabia's Mohammed Bin Salman is a

man in a hurry. After stopping over

0:05:560:06:00

in Egypt this week, he is coming to

Britain to promote his is an --

0:06:000:06:04

vision of a new, tolerance Saudi

Arabia. He has lifted the ban on

0:06:040:06:08

women climbing from June. A new

mega- city will be built. He also

0:06:080:06:15

imprisoned without trial hundreds of

wealthy Saudis in this regard hotel,

0:06:150:06:20

accusing them of corruption,

something that is worrying foreign

0:06:200:06:24

investors. Defence and security

contracts dominate ties with

0:06:240:06:28

Britain. The UK supplies the Saudi

Air Force with warplanes and

0:06:280:06:31

munitions. In neighbouring Yemen,

Saudi led airstrikes on uranium

0:06:310:06:37

backed Houthi rebels are being

blamed the mounting casualties

0:06:370:06:40

prompting calls by some to break off

relations with Saudi. A protest is

0:06:400:06:45

scheduled for later today outside

Downing Street but oil-rich Saudi

0:06:450:06:49

Arabia is Britain's biggest Arab

trading partner. Thousands of jobs

0:06:490:06:53

depend on it. In a post- Brexit

world Britain is looking to boost

0:06:530:06:58

alliances like this one while Saudi

Arabia is looking for foreign

0:06:580:07:02

investment to find jobs for its

Erbil lovingly young population.

0:07:020:07:07

When Crown Prince Muhamed meets

leaders in London, his message will

0:07:070:07:10

be Saudi Arabia is open to business

but this relationship will lossless

0:07:100:07:14

be a controversial one.

0:07:140:07:18

The top economic adviser

to the White House, Gary Cohn,

0:07:180:07:21

has announced his resignation -

after failing to persuade

0:07:210:07:23

President Trump not to impose

significant tariffs on imports

0:07:230:07:26

of steel and aluminium.

0:07:260:07:27

Art

0:07:270:07:29

Mr Cohn was regarded

by many business leaders

0:07:290:07:31

as a moderating influence

in the administration.He's

0:07:310:07:33

the latest in a long line of people

who've left the White House.

0:07:330:07:41

he has tremendous energy, tremendous

spirit.

It is a great place to be

0:07:420:07:48

working. Many, many people want

every single job. I'm reading that

0:07:480:07:51

people may be don't want to work the

Trump but believe me, everybody

0:07:510:07:55

wants to work in the White House.

They all want a piece of that Oval

0:07:550:07:59

Office, they all want a piece of the

West Wing. Sorry, I think that was

0:07:590:08:06

possibly my fault for speaking too

much.

0:08:060:08:09

Action's being taken

against so-called "secondary

0:08:090:08:10

ticketing" companies over what's

being described as "misleading

0:08:100:08:12

pricing information"

on their websites.

0:08:120:08:14

The Advertising Standards

Authority says the firms -

0:08:140:08:16

which re-sell tickets

to sold-out shows -

0:08:160:08:18

have to be more upfront

with customers about hidden fees.

0:08:180:08:20

Our business and consumer

correspondent Nina Warhurst reports:

0:08:200:08:28

I was born in crossfire Tara Cheyne.

The Rolling Stones are coming to

0:08:320:08:35

town and I am keen to being there.

This secondary ticketing sites

0:08:350:08:41

Viagogo is selling a ticket for £141

but when I go to pay, this happens.

0:08:410:08:49

£47 VAT and booking fees are a

ticket that we thought was costing

0:08:490:08:54

-- costing us £141 is now almost 200

quid. These nasty surprises are

0:08:540:08:59

common. Claire used Viagogo to vie

for Ed Sheeran tickets she thought

0:08:590:09:06

was costing less than £300 but that

was for one ticket and other fees

0:09:060:09:10

were added, more than £1400 E.

I

rang my daughter crying and I said,

0:09:100:09:17

I thought I had done something. The

awful feeling is that I felt I had

0:09:170:09:22

done something wrong and then I

realised I hadn't actually, that the

0:09:220:09:26

sole practice was very deceptive.

We

contacted Viagogo for a response but

0:09:260:09:32

didn't get a reply. Claire did get

her money back and from today, new

0:09:320:09:37

guidelines could see secondary

sellers prosecuted if they mislead

0:09:370:09:41

consumers.

We are saying that they

got to be much more clear and

0:09:410:09:45

upfront about the prices that we are

painting when we buy tickets through

0:09:450:09:49

their sites and in a nutshell, we

are saying the price that we see

0:09:490:09:52

when we first input how many tickets

we want should be the price we pay

0:09:520:09:57

at the end.

If you already forked

out these to see Mick and again, you

0:09:570:10:03

can appeal them and next time

thereunto, the ticket price you see

0:10:030:10:07

should be what you get.

0:10:070:10:17

Do send us your thoughts on that as

well.

0:10:170:10:21

If you paid more than your port.

People get caught in a spiral, they

0:10:210:10:25

want to see the artist they love and

spend vast amounts of money and

0:10:250:10:28

regretted but it seems there is no

other way around it.

0:10:280:10:33

A Spanish tourist has died

and another is critically ill

0:10:330:10:35

in hospital after a suspected carbon

monoxide leak in a west

0:10:350:10:38

London hotel.

0:10:380:10:39

29 people were moved out

of The Mayflower Hotel in Kensington

0:10:390:10:42

after emergency services were called

on Monday afternoon.

0:10:420:10:44

Scotland Yard said initial carbon

monoxide tests showed high readings.

0:10:440:10:48

A BBC investigation has found more

than 1,500 ambulances

0:10:480:10:51

were deployed to just

five people last year.

0:10:510:10:54

The figures show one

patient in London

0:10:540:11:01

dialled for an ambulance

more than 3,500 times

0:11:010:11:03

over 12 months.

0:11:030:11:04

The NHS say frequent callers

are not "time wasters",

0:11:040:11:06

but people with a genuine need,

although they are costing the health

0:11:060:11:10

service millions

of pounds each year.

0:11:100:11:15

It does impact on our ability as a

service. To give a context, we do

0:11:150:11:20

around 540,000 calls per year and

about 10% of those calls are

0:11:200:11:24

frequent callers that it has an

impact because it means sometimes we

0:11:240:11:28

do need to send an ambulance to

these people because there is a

0:11:280:11:31

concern about the information they

are giving and the ambulance

0:11:310:11:34

response vehicle is being deployed

to the patient to win was a frequent

0:11:340:11:38

caller, it means a resource might

not be available for a potential

0:11:380:11:41

cardiac arrest.

0:11:410:11:42

Craft brewing company Brewdog

is being criticised after unveiling

0:11:420:11:44

a new drink, in pink packaging,

which they're calling a 'beer

0:11:440:11:47

for girls'.

0:11:470:11:49

The company says it's

a satirical dig at lazy

0:11:490:11:51

marketing and stereotypes.

0:11:510:11:54

The beer will cost less for women

than men and proceeds will go

0:11:540:11:59

towards tackling gender inequality.

0:11:590:12:00

But some people on social

media have described

0:12:000:12:02

the campaign as "ill-judged".

0:12:020:12:08

I enjoyed your dramatic pause there.

It's all in the pausing.

0:12:100:12:15

The world's oldest known message

in a bottle has been found

0:12:150:12:18

a staggering 132 years

after it was thrown overboard

0:12:180:12:21

on the 12th of June, 1886.

0:12:210:12:24

The bottle was found

by a family in Perth whilst out

0:12:240:12:27

walking on a remote beach

in Western Australia.

0:12:270:12:29

Experts confirmed the find,

which was launched by

0:12:290:12:32

the German Naval Observatory as part

of an experiment into ocean

0:12:320:12:35

and shipping routes, was authentic.

0:12:350:12:41

They confirmed that it was

authentic. The messages were all a

0:12:410:12:45

little dull. I remember another

bottle was found a few years ago.

0:12:450:12:51

The German Navy just through

thousands of bottles into the sea at

0:12:510:12:55

Ferris points around the world and

the message says, can you please

0:12:550:12:59

contact the German naval office and

tell us where you found it. It's not

0:12:590:13:04

like, I love you Beatrice, will you

marry me? It is rather logistically

0:13:040:13:09

dialled. That's a shame. It is an

old bottle.

0:13:090:13:16

John is here it this morning. Where

a use starting?

0:13:200:13:27

With a smiling Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool have a rich history with

0:13:270:13:32

the European Cup but you've got to

be in it to win it. No wonder he is

0:13:320:13:37

smiling.

0:13:370:13:38

Liverpool could relax last night.

0:13:380:13:39

(OOV) All the work was

done in the first leg

0:13:390:13:42

All the work was done

in the first leg

0:13:420:13:44

of their match against Porto.

0:13:440:13:46

They were already five-nil up

and Sadio Mane's shot was as close

0:13:460:13:49

as they got to adding

to that last night.

0:13:490:13:51

0-0 saw Liverpool

through comfortably.

0:13:510:13:53

The holders are also

in the last eight.

0:13:530:13:55

That man Cristiano Ronaldo scored

as they saw off another one

0:13:550:13:58

of Europe's richest clubs,

Paris St Germain.

0:13:580:14:03

It is a smoky stadium after players

were lit by the home fans.

0:14:030:14:11

England's women take on America

in the SheBelieves Cup knowing that

0:14:110:14:14

a point will be enough

to win the tournament.

0:14:140:14:17

It is Phil Neville's burst the

competition since he has been in

0:14:170:14:21

charge.

0:14:210:14:21

England's cricketers can

seal their one day series

0:14:210:14:23

against New Zealand

with victory in Dundedin.

0:14:230:14:25

Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root both hit

centuries to set the hosts a stiff

0:14:250:14:29

target but New Zealand have

responded well to set up another

0:14:290:14:32

tight finish.

0:14:320:14:34

Along one of cricket England, hasn't

it been? Fingers crossed we get a

0:14:340:14:38

result. John Isner the lots

throughout the morning.

0:14:380:14:45

As is Carol. Good morning.

Good

morning, everyone. This morning,

0:14:450:14:53

quite a lot of weather on once again

but for many today it will be a much

0:14:530:14:58

drier and I today, especially in

Scotland.

0:14:580:15:00

Sunshine and showers there, a nice

simple one. Showers around at the

0:15:020:15:06

moment in the north and west of

Scotland, they could turn wintry

0:15:060:15:11

across Shetland, and there's also a

noticeable wind here too. Heavier

0:15:110:15:14

showers moving around East Anglia

and the south-east, clearing away,

0:15:140:15:20

leaving some cloud behind. You can

see a lot of dry weather and

0:15:200:15:24

sunshine, compared to yesterday in

parts of Scotland, vastly different.

0:15:240:15:30

Showers coming in across Wales and

south-west England, temperatures

0:15:300:15:33

today up to ten or 11 in the south,

a more respectable 6-8 further

0:15:330:15:39

north, compared again to what we've

been used to. Through the evening

0:15:390:15:44

and overnight, a lot of dry weather

and the risk of ice on untreated

0:15:440:15:49

surfaces and then this system from

the South West Wiltshire in heavier

0:15:490:15:52

outbreaks of rain or showers, but as

it engages with cold air in parts of

0:15:520:15:57

Wales, central and northern Wales

and into the Midlands, we could see

0:15:570:16:00

snow. Bear that in mind early in the

morning and that could include

0:16:000:16:06

Lincolnshire first thing as well. As

we go through tomorrow, that will

0:16:060:16:10

eventually pull away, pushing into

the North Sea. You can see the tail

0:16:100:16:15

and producing rain in the

south-east. Then tomorrow again not

0:16:150:16:18

a bad day. -- tail and. Some cloud,

some sunshine, but for most it will

0:16:180:16:25

be dry and a low pressure centre in

the north-west bringing in some

0:16:250:16:29

showers in western parts of Scotland

as we go through the day.

0:16:290:16:33

Temperatures are similar for most of

tomorrow as today, 6-9 or maybe ten

0:16:330:16:38

as we push into the south of

England. By the time we get to

0:16:380:16:43

Friday, we are still looking at dry

weather, we start with some snow

0:16:430:16:48

showers in Scotland first thing but

they will fade through the day. A

0:16:480:16:52

fair bit of sunshine. However, we

have our next area of low pressure

0:16:520:16:56

coming our way. This will include

three things. Heavy rain across the

0:16:560:17:02

south-west pushing north. The wind

will strengthen around it but it

0:17:020:17:06

will so bring in milder air as well.

We've got ten, 11 and 12. With this,

0:17:060:17:11

there will be a fair bit of cloud.

Into the weekend, as that moves

0:17:110:17:16

north, the milder air is coming in

to southern counties. Because it

0:17:160:17:21

will be wet and windy the

temperature will be around 13, but

0:17:210:17:25

compared to the temperatures of

late, an improvement, the cold, mild

0:17:250:17:31

air not getting into the far north

of Scotland. As we go through the

0:17:310:17:36

weekend, we have the rain continuing

to push north. There will be a fair

0:17:360:17:40

bit of cloud behind it. Turning that

bit milder as well and also some

0:17:400:17:46

sunshine as well.

0:17:460:17:47

Carol, thanks very much, we will

look out for it. Let's look at the

0:17:490:17:53

papers, Steph has joined us. Where

are you going to "As you like I'm

0:17:530:17:58

going to start with... -- where are

you going to start?

0:17:580:18:08

There is one story dominating the

papers, it is of course this case

0:18:080:18:14

about these two people, a father and

daughter, found poisoned, that's how

0:18:140:18:18

the Guardian have written it up, a

spider poison case. There's

0:18:180:18:26

implications of a boycott of the

World Cup, Boris Johnson was talking

0:18:260:18:30

about it yesterday, but that's not

the players, he's talking about what

0:18:300:18:33

officials might do to Russia.

The

front page of the Times as well.

0:18:330:18:40

Here's a photo of the daughter of

Sergei script will. That's the story

0:18:400:18:48

in the front page of the Daily

Mirror, worldwide hunt for spy

0:18:480:18:51

assassin. -- Sergei Skripal. And Mr

Turnbull on the front page of the

0:18:510:19:01

Mirror. Many of you talking about

Bill yesterday and he was on Stand

0:19:010:19:07

Up to Cancer yesterday on the Baker

Off. He was moved to tears

0:19:070:19:14

yesterday. So many of you send

messages for him. Thanks so much, he

0:19:140:19:21

appreciates that. -- sent. Puddings

swears revenge. -- Putin. The

0:19:210:19:32

screening for roster concert doesn't

save lives and may do more harm than

0:19:320:19:35

good according to one study --

prostate cancer. It follows a long

0:19:350:19:42

debate about whether the NHS should

have routine screening.

I've got

0:19:420:19:48

three stories bore you. I'm going to

go through them quickly.

0:19:480:19:51

They are all interesting -- for you.

We will be the judge of that.

The

0:19:510:19:58

first story is about Lego, their

sales have fallen for the first time

0:19:580:20:02

because they have too much stock. A

company that has done particularly

0:20:020:20:08

well, nearly went into bankruptcy in

2003, now they are saying sales have

0:20:080:20:13

been great but they have too much

stock, not great for them. Gregg's

0:20:130:20:18

is employing bouncers outside some

of its shops. People are fighting

0:20:180:20:26

for the sausage rolls. I like a

sausage roll.

Would you enter into a

0:20:260:20:31

fisticuffs for one?

I wouldn't, I

would wait patiently but interesting

0:20:310:20:37

they have employed bouncers. Mainly

to do with football days.

Is it a

0:20:370:20:43

particular time?

Yeah, anywhere near

a football ground. Final story, you

0:20:430:20:48

can put a bet on anything. There's a

website where they will take bets on

0:20:480:20:55

whether aliens will land on the

earth by 2030. Loads of rich people

0:20:550:20:59

are betting on there, like Eric

Schmitt, the chief executive of

0:20:590:21:03

Google, has used the website to bet

against a senior executive of

0:21:030:21:07

Microsoft that there won't be

pilotless planes in the skies by

0:21:070:21:12

2030.

You can bet anything you want?

Yeah, that there will be scientific

0:21:120:21:17

evidence that a large... A Yeti

exists. You can put $800 on.

That's

0:21:170:21:29

evidence we have too much time and

money on our hands.

What have you

0:21:290:21:33

got, John?

Looking at the World Cup,

99 days to go until the start of the

0:21:330:21:39

tournament in Russia and they have

launched a video. Famous players

0:21:390:21:43

doing keep ERPs and the FIFA

president is doing keep ERPs with

0:21:430:21:52

Vladimir Putin. Incredibly cheesy

and awful. The youngest child and

0:21:520:22:00

brother set for a debut for England

at 71.

Is this walking football?

0:22:000:22:05

Yeah, he will hopefully play for the

England over 60s walking football

0:22:050:22:09

team. Obviously there's Bobby and

Jack, but at 71 he is at long last

0:22:090:22:18

going to make his England debut.

We

have two dog stories.

Do you speak

0:22:180:22:22

to your dog?

Full dog speak.

All

that sort of stuff. What does that

0:22:220:22:30

mean?

Hello, lovely face. Don't do

it to Lou.

It is very offputting.

0:22:300:22:41

Dog owners speak to their dogs like

babies. They may get baffled looks

0:22:410:22:47

from their friends but a study has

found animals love you more for it.

0:22:470:22:54

You see! Remember the story about

Barbara Streisand and cloning her

0:22:540:23:01

dog?

Yes.

The dog was called

Samantha. Here's a picture that has

0:23:010:23:06

gone up this year. This is

Samantha's grave and these are the

0:23:060:23:11

two clones from some of the and Miss

Scarlet and Miss Violet are their

0:23:110:23:19

names. Bonding with... I want to say

their mum but it isn't really their

0:23:190:23:29

mum, there root dog. If you fancy

dog cloning, £70,000 for that. There

0:23:290:23:34

you go. None of us are going to

clone our dogs, that is my bet for

0:23:340:23:42

that website.

0:23:420:23:42

You're watching

Breakfast from BBC News.

0:23:420:23:45

The majority of women who suffer

from domestic violence aren't

0:23:450:23:47

reporting the abuse to the police,

according to a new survey.

0:23:470:23:50

The research, which was carried out

by Women's Aid, shows that just

0:23:500:23:54

under half of women in refuges make

an official report.

0:23:540:23:56

Domestic abuse comes in many forms

including harassment and assault

0:23:560:23:59

and can affect both men and women,

as Ali Fortescue reports.

0:23:590:24:07

Sometimes a lot of the violence was

towards the children, and it was me

0:24:070:24:12

stepping in the way. That's how it

would turn onto me. But, yeah, I

0:24:120:24:19

feel a lot of regret. A lot of

regret.

Emma, not her real name, was

0:24:190:24:24

with a partner who she says abuse

Durval 15 years but like so many

0:24:240:24:29

other survivors, she never told

police what was happening to her.

At

0:24:290:24:33

the end of the day it is still the

children's that and I would have to

0:24:330:24:37

live with the fact that if he got

arrested and sent to prison, that's

0:24:370:24:41

taking the children's dad away from

them.

Of more than 14,000 survivors

0:24:410:24:46

using

0:24:460:24:46

them.

Of more than 14,000 survivors

using refuges and community

0:24:460:24:47

services, figures show less than a

third went to police last year.

0:24:470:24:51

Fewer than in 2016. And in just one

in seven cases has there been a

0:24:510:24:57

criminal case or sanctions against

the perpetrator.

0:24:570:25:00

See an awful lot of women who don't

think that prosecuting their abuser

0:25:000:25:04

is worthwhile. They aren't sure they

will get an empathetic response.

0:25:040:25:10

They get a sense that actually

things might just spiralled even

0:25:100:25:13

worse out of their control.

0:25:130:25:15

A

0:25:160:25:16

A recent report by the independent

criminal Justice inspector found

0:25:160:25:20

that police responded to more than

400,000 domestic abuse crimes in the

0:25:200:25:24

year to June 2016. That's a 23%

increase in just one year. They

0:25:240:25:30

found that while some progress had

been made, a changing culture is

0:25:300:25:34

still needed by many forces.

0:25:340:25:37

Morning, and the.

Hi, I'm dealing

with a...

0:25:370:25:42

Northumbria police has been praised

for its work on domestic abuse. It

0:25:420:25:47

says building relationships with

support charities have helped to

0:25:470:25:51

create lines of contact with

victims.

0:25:510:25:54

30% of all violence against the

person is through domestic abuse, so

0:25:540:25:58

it's a huge issue for the police to

manage. We need to attack it very

0:25:580:26:03

strongly and very intelligently.

And

what are the main problems that we

0:26:030:26:08

saw in them report was the culture

of frontline staff, does that mean

0:26:080:26:12

victims aren't being trusted?

I hope

not. Not every frontline officer

0:26:120:26:18

understands it, has been trained in

it, takes it seriously. So, yes,

0:26:180:26:23

comprehensive training must be done

and I think there's a big drive to

0:26:230:26:26

do that.

The hope is that more work is being

0:26:260:26:29

done to engage with survivors like

Emma, but today's figures show just

0:26:290:26:34

how many still aren't coming

forward.

0:26:340:26:36

If you ask in time then you're going

to get that help you need to get you

0:26:360:26:40

away, to get you out of that

situation so it never needs to get

0:26:400:26:46

to that point.

Ali Fortescue, BBC

News.

0:26:460:26:48

We will be discussing that later

both with a policewoman as well.

0:26:480:26:53

Coming up on Breakfast this

morning:

0:26:530:26:54

From music speakers

to baby monitors.

0:26:540:26:56

More and more everyday

items are connected

0:26:560:26:58

to the internet these days.

0:26:580:26:59

We'll hear about moves

to keep our homes safe from hackers.

0:26:590:27:02

Time now to get the news,

travel and weather where you are.

0:27:020:27:05

If you're heading out then take a

brolly with you.

0:30:240:30:26

I'm back with the latest

from the BBC London newsroom

0:30:260:30:29

in half an hour.

0:30:290:30:30

Now, though, it's back

to Dan and Louise.

0:30:300:30:32

Bye for now.

0:30:320:30:33

Hello - this is Breakfast

with Dan Walker and Louise Minchin.

0:30:380:30:41

We'll bring you all the latest news

and sport in a moment,

0:30:410:30:44

But also on Breakfast this morning:

0:30:440:30:47

After being seriously injured

in the Westminster Bridge terror

0:30:470:30:49

attack, PC Kris Aves could do

longer live at home.

0:30:490:30:52

But now he's back with his family,

thanks to work by the DIY SOS team.

0:30:520:30:57

We'll give you a sneak preview.

0:30:570:30:58

Secondary ticket sites can end up

costing music fans a small fortune.

0:30:580:31:02

But there's some good

news this morning.

0:31:020:31:04

We'll be hearing about new rules

to stop hidden charges.

0:31:040:31:06

And she was a glamorous

star of silver screen.

0:31:060:31:09

But Hedy Lamarr was also

an ingenious inventor.

0:31:090:31:12

We'll talk to the director

of a new movie which tells

0:31:120:31:17

how her work helped to revolutionise

modern communication.

0:31:170:31:23

Here's a summary of today's main

stories from BBC News.

0:31:230:31:28

The Home Secretary will chair

an emergency meeting

0:31:280:31:30

of the Government's COBRA committee

this morning to discuss

0:31:300:31:33

the suspected poisoning of a former

Russian agent and his daughter.

0:31:330:31:36

Sergei and Yulia Skripal

are still in a critical condition

0:31:360:31:38

after being found unconscious

on Sunday in Salisbury.

0:31:380:31:40

Counter-terrorism police have now

taken over the investigation.

0:31:400:31:43

Russia has denied any involvement.

0:31:430:31:51

Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince,

Mohammed Bin Salman,

0:31:540:31:56

is beginning a three-day

visit to Britain.

0:31:560:31:58

He'll have lunch with

the Queen and hold talks

0:31:580:32:01

with the Prime Minister.

0:32:010:32:02

The Government regards Saudi Arabia

as an important strategic ally

0:32:020:32:04

but protest marches are planned

by campaign groups angered

0:32:040:32:07

by the war in Yemen, where

the Kingdom is fighting rebels.

0:32:070:32:10

Action's being taken

against so-called "secondary

0:32:100:32:11

ticketing" companies over what's

being described as "misleading

0:32:110:32:14

pricing information"

on their websites.

0:32:140:32:17

The sites resell tickets

for sold-out shows

0:32:170:32:20

but the Advertising Standards Agency

says they have hidden charges

0:32:200:32:23

and sometimes don't even

guarantee entry to the gigs.

0:32:230:32:26

It follows an investigation

by Trading Standards

0:32:260:32:29

and The Competition

and Markets Authority.

0:32:290:32:32

The Chancellor Phillip Hammond

will today outline his vision

0:32:320:32:35

of an EU free trade deal

for the financial services

0:32:350:32:38

sector after Brexit.

0:32:380:32:38

Mr Hammond, who wants

special access to the EU's

0:32:380:32:41

single market, is expected

to use his speech in London to focus

0:32:410:32:44

on an agreement which he says

will be of mutual interest

0:32:440:32:47

to both parties.

0:32:470:32:49

The European Commission has

previously said that a free trade

0:32:490:32:52

deal including the City

is not an option.

0:32:520:32:58

The top economic adviser

to the White House, Gary Cohn,

0:32:580:33:03

has announced his resignation -

after failing to persuade

0:33:030:33:06

President Trump not to impose

significant tariffs on imports

0:33:060:33:08

of steel and aluminium.

0:33:080:33:09

Mr Cohn was regarded

by many business leaders

0:33:090:33:12

as a moderating influence

in the administration.He's

0:33:120:33:14

the latest in a long line of people

who've left the White House.

0:33:140:33:21

The White House has tremendous

energy, it is tremendous spirit.

0:33:280:33:33

It is a great place to be working.

0:33:330:33:35

Many, many people want

every single job.

0:33:350:33:37

I ready, "Oh, gee, maybe don't

want to work with Trump,"

0:33:370:33:40

but believe me, everybody wants

to work in the White House.

0:33:400:33:43

They all want a piece

of that Oval Office,

0:33:430:33:46

they all want a piece

of the West Wing.

0:33:460:33:49

A Spanish tourist has died

and another is critically ill

0:33:490:33:52

in hospital after a suspected carbon

monoxide leak in a west

0:33:520:33:55

London hotel.

0:33:550:33:55

29 people were moved out

of The Mayflower Hotel in Kensington

0:33:550:33:58

after emergency services were called

on Monday afternoon.

0:33:580:34:00

Scotland Yard said initial carbon

monoxide tests showed high readings.

0:34:000:34:07

A BBC investigation has found more

than 1,500 ambulances

0:34:070:34:11

were deployed to just

five people last year.

0:34:110:34:16

The figures show one

patient in London

0:34:160:34:18

dialled for an ambulance

more than 3,500 times

0:34:180:34:20

over 12 months.

0:34:200:34:22

The NHS say frequent callers

are not "time wasters",

0:34:220:34:25

but people with a genuine need,

although they are costing the health

0:34:250:34:30

service millions

of pounds each year.

0:34:300:34:38

Craft brewing company Brewdog

is being criticised after unveiling

0:34:380:34:41

a new drink, in pink packaging,

which they're calling a 'beer

0:34:410:34:44

for girls'.

0:34:440:34:44

The company says it's

a satirical dig at lazy

0:34:440:34:47

marketing and stereotypes.

0:34:470:34:47

The beer will cost less for women

than men and proceeds will go

0:34:470:34:51

towards tackling gender inequality.

0:34:510:34:52

But some people on social

media have described

0:34:520:34:54

the campaign as "ill-judged".

0:34:540:35:02

Last week, and image of Parker Curry

's staring at a picture of Michelle

0:35:150:35:20

Obama went viral. She said she

didn't know who she was. Well,

0:35:200:35:25

Michelle Obama invited of the war

turned out to be a dance party. That

0:35:250:35:30

looks like a lot of fun. Adorable.

Adorable. Look at them go. I would

0:35:300:35:37

like to hear the music as well. It

is a silent movie.

0:35:370:35:46

John is with us this morning. A bit

of that going on in the Liverpool

0:35:460:35:51

dressing room. I would have thought

so. A shocked shoe shuffle.

0:35:510:35:59

Liverpool as we know, such a rich

history in the European Cup. He

0:35:590:36:05

wants to take them back to those

great days once again. They are on

0:36:050:36:10

the path, aren't they? They were on

easy street because of what they

0:36:100:36:14

did. It wasn't as thrilling as the

first leg.

0:36:140:36:20

When the first leg was as thrilling,

Liverpool could afford to take ite

0:36:200:36:24

asy last night.

0:36:240:36:26

Sadio Mane closest as anyone

to adding to that but hit the post,

0:36:260:36:32

0-0 enough to see them through.

0:36:320:36:37

I think this year will be longer, to

be honest. It should not a big

0:36:370:36:41

surprise. In the next round will be

very difficult. I think that's

0:36:410:36:49

clear. We have a lot of good teams,

seven of the very good teams will be

0:36:490:36:54

then involved so maybe five of them,

for them I learned from England.

0:36:540:37:01

Let's make it easier, to be honest.

But I think we will have a chance,

0:37:010:37:06

for sure, to go to the semis then

and that is of course to tire.

0:37:060:37:15

Look at the scene in France

as Paris Saint Germain supporters

0:37:150:37:18

let off flares in the stadium

as they lost to Real Madrid.

0:37:180:37:21

Perhaps no wonder their keeper

failed to stop Cristiano Ronaldo's

0:37:210:37:24

header as smoke flooded the field,

as the holders go through.

0:37:240:37:27

Can Tottenham join them there?

0:37:270:37:34

They are locked at 2-2

with the Italian

0:37:340:37:37

champions Juventus heading

into tonight's second leg.

0:37:370:37:38

By the looks of it

Mauricio Pochettino's been

0:37:380:37:41

doing his homework.

0:37:410:37:41

They came from two nil

down in the first leg,

0:37:410:37:44

hoping to reach the quarter finals

for just the second time.

0:37:440:37:47

England's Women only need a point

from their match against USA tonight

0:37:470:37:50

to win the She Believes Cup.

0:37:500:37:51

The tournament features some

of the top sides in the world

0:37:510:37:54

and England have already beaten

France and drawn with Germany.

0:37:540:37:57

But the Americans are the highest

ranked team in the world,

0:37:570:38:00

the

0:38:000:38:00

toughest test yet for

new boss Phil Neville.

0:38:000:38:03

See the scheme is a little bit of,

not where we can just go for it

0:38:030:38:08

really, in a way, and Campbell and

risk because you need to find out

0:38:080:38:13

about your players in the biggest

game. This could be a World Cup

0:38:130:38:17

final in 12 months' time and I want

to see whether we can play this part

0:38:170:38:22

-- this 12 months' time and the

biggest occasions one go to test my

0:38:220:38:25

players even more.

0:38:250:38:26

England's cricketers had few

problems seeing off Australia

0:38:260:38:29

in a one day series earlier this

year but they're finding New Zeakand

0:38:290:38:32

a much tougher proposition.

0:38:320:38:33

-- Zealand.

0:38:330:38:35

The hosts have levelled the seresi

at 2-all with one to play

0:38:350:38:38

with England posted 334 thaks

to centuries from Jonny airstown

0:38:380:38:41

and Joe Root but the Black Caps

chased down the total.

0:38:410:38:45

Five wickets in three balls to

spare. Ross Taylor scored 181. He

0:38:450:38:51

managed that while limping and

earlier hurt himself diving to avoid

0:38:510:38:56

being run out. Not that it mattered.

0:38:560:38:59

And England's rugby union captain

Dylan Hartley might not be able

0:38:590:39:02

to play against France

at the weekend.

0:39:020:39:04

He's struggling with a leg injury.

0:39:040:39:06

He joins a growing injury list-

Sam Underhill's definitely out

0:39:060:39:08

of that match and wing Jack Nowell,

seen here scoring against Italy,

0:39:080:39:12

will miss the rest

of the Six Nations.

0:39:120:39:14

England realistically need to win

to have any chance of the title.

0:39:140:39:17

Now, any idea who this is?

0:39:170:39:22

A famous British athlete,

who has been turned into a Barbie

0:39:220:39:25

doll to mark International

Women's Day tomorrow.

0:39:250:39:28

Nicola Adams, the first UK athlete

to form part of the 'Shero' range.

0:39:280:39:32

It's all about inspiring young

women, and breaking the mould

0:39:320:39:35

of what typical Barbies looked like.

0:39:350:39:42

Nicola is the first UK star to join

Barbie's 'Shero' range,

0:39:420:39:45

which is designed to

honour inspiring women.

0:39:450:39:53

The manufacturers of the doll

say they chose Nicola

0:39:530:39:56

because of her outstanding

contributions to boxing.

0:39:560:39:58

Nicola said she's excited to become

the first ever boxer Barbie.

0:39:580:40:06

It appears the investigation

into what happened to a former

0:40:060:40:09

Russian spy, found collapsed

in Salisbury, is already putting

0:40:090:40:11

a strain on relations

between the UK and Russia.

0:40:110:40:13

The Kremlin strongly

denies any involvement.

0:40:130:40:15

But the foreign secretary says

the government would be forced

0:40:150:40:21

to act "robustly" should it find any

evidence of wrongdoing.

0:40:210:40:24

But what could that mean?

0:40:240:40:25

Joining us is James Nixey,

head of the Russia's programme

0:40:250:40:31

at Chatham House.

0:40:310:40:39

Is it possible for this to not

affect Anglo Russian relations? You

0:40:430:40:47

might it's impossible and

implausibly as Russia.

0:40:470:40:55

implausibly as Russia. We keep

saying that Ross and relations with

0:40:550:41:00

the UK are at the bottom of the

barrel but we keep finding new

0:41:000:41:04

depths depths. -- depths. It is hard

to say what this means in real

0:41:040:41:09

terms. UK will usher relations have

been described as toxic by the

0:41:090:41:14

Russians themselves. We are in a new

era of relations which has always

0:41:140:41:21

been peaks and troughs but largely

periods of hostility.

There are so

0:41:210:41:28

many things we don't know. We don't

know what the substance is, or

0:41:280:41:32

whether they were both targeted but

it is found to be there was Russian

0:41:320:41:36

involvement, are their options or

more sanctions, for example? We

0:41:360:41:41

heard Boris Johnson talking about a

boycott the World Cup.

At the

0:41:410:41:47

moment, while we remain in the EU,

Boris Johnson called for an increase

0:41:470:41:52

in sanctions after the Russians were

shelling Aleppo and causing human

0:41:520:41:58

rights atrocities but that was

knocked down by other governments.

0:41:580:42:01

We are locked in for another year.

There is a unique relationship

0:42:010:42:05

between the UK and Russia whereby a

lot of very wealthy Russians whose

0:42:050:42:10

money is dirty and they reside in

London, they properties, they run

0:42:100:42:16

newspapers and football clubs, and

they could be squeezed and that

0:42:160:42:20

would have an effect but is they are

the Russian elite and they have

0:42:200:42:24

close contacts with the Russian

President said there are things the

0:42:240:42:27

UK could do bilaterally with Russia

or against Russia if it needs to.

0:42:270:42:35

This is what the Russian Embassy

responded to Boris Johnson's

0:42:350:42:38

statement. We are impressed by his

statement and he spoke in a manner

0:42:380:42:42

as if the investigation was over and

Russia was found responsible for

0:42:420:42:46

what happened in Salisbury. We

regret instead of a proper

0:42:460:42:50

clarification he chose to threaten

Russia with retribution. They go on

0:42:500:42:54

to talk about an anti- Russian

campaign. Is that the feeling in

0:42:540:42:58

Russia?

On the Russian Embassy

response, the Mandy Rice Davies

0:42:580:43:07

things comes into response, they

would, wouldn't they? But the UK has

0:43:070:43:13

to be seen to respond or it would

look impotent. This is a pattern and

0:43:130:43:19

we are simply in this period whereby

the two governments, I mean the

0:43:190:43:25

level of educational exchanges and

cultural exchanges are fine, trade

0:43:250:43:29

is not bad, it hasn't fallen much

since Russia annexed Crimea in 2014

0:43:290:43:34

but this unique relationship between

politicians and civil servants, that

0:43:340:43:40

is something new and it's getting

worse.

Let's

0:43:400:43:51

worse.

Let's talk about Sergei

Skripal. Why IT are being targeted?

0:43:530:43:56

Would his daughter have been

targeted?

We are in the realms of

0:43:560:44:00

conjecture. One can hypothesise that

it is a warning to others not to

0:44:000:44:06

turn, not to sell Russian secrets

abroad. It could be because he was

0:44:060:44:12

still working with the UK

intelligence services but this is

0:44:120:44:15

conjecture. In that respect, I do

agree with the Russians. A proper

0:44:150:44:22

investigative process does need to

take place. But what happened on

0:44:220:44:25

Sunday its recent patterns of

Russian state-sponsored

0:44:250:44:30

assassination attempts in the UK.

Still so many questions as yet

0:44:300:44:37

unanswered. We will be live in

Salisbury as well later.

0:44:370:44:44

Let's have a look at the weather

with Carol.

0:44:440:44:46

Today we are looking at sunshine and

showers. Some of those will be heavy

0:44:480:44:53

and some could be wintry but the

wintry ones will be confined to the

0:44:530:44:57

north and west of Scotland.

Currently here we have rain, but it

0:44:570:45:01

could turn to snow particularly

across Shetland even at lower

0:45:010:45:05

levels, and also here we have a keen

wind. For the rest of us, showers

0:45:050:45:09

around, a showery and rain pushing

into the North Sea, clearing

0:45:090:45:14

eventually East Anglia but behind it

a fair bit cloud around and

0:45:140:45:21

showers... Some heavy. Look at the

dry weather and the sunshine. The

0:45:210:45:30

sunshine will come out for a lengthy

amount of time, but not seeing much

0:45:300:45:33

in the far east of East Anglia,

hanging on to the cloud until after

0:45:330:45:37

dark. As we head on through the

overnight period, a lot of dry

0:45:370:45:41

weather but where it's been damp

there's the risk of ice on untreated

0:45:410:45:45

surfaces, we could see some patchy

missed forming as well and then we

0:45:450:45:49

have these showers from the south.

You can see the arc of it coming

0:45:490:45:55

through the Channel Islands and the

south-east, that will be rain. As it

0:45:550:45:59

moves across parts of Wales, central

and northern Wales, into the

0:45:590:46:04

Midlands and potentially, depending

on the speed, Lincolnshire, by this

0:46:040:46:07

time tomorrow we could see snow and

there's the potential for that to be

0:46:070:46:11

disruptive. Keep watching the

weather forecast, especially if

0:46:110:46:15

you're travelling. As we go through

tomorrow, that will move away slowly

0:46:150:46:19

from Lincolnshire, getting dragged

into the North Sea. Behind it once

0:46:190:46:25

again, a lot of dry weather. A fair

bit of sunshine around, our low

0:46:250:46:28

pressure centre by then is across

the far north-west of Scotland so

0:46:280:46:33

around it we have showers wrapped

around the low pressure, bringing

0:46:330:46:37

some showery breaks into western

Scotland and the Outer Hebrides.

0:46:370:46:42

Temperatures tomorrow, five, six or

seven in the north, eight, nine, ten

0:46:420:46:45

in the south. By Friday we will have

snow showers to start the day in

0:46:450:46:50

parts of Scotland. They will tend to

fade and again, a lot of dry

0:46:500:46:54

weather. Where you see the greens on

the chart that's where we have the

0:46:540:46:59

sunshine, but through the day a new

area of low pressure is coming our

0:46:590:47:03

way doing three things, bringing in

heavy rain from the south-west,

0:47:030:47:07

pushing north-east. Also it will

bring strengthening winds and milder

0:47:070:47:11

conditions. Temperatures in the

north on Friday, seven, eight. In

0:47:110:47:16

the south, ten, 11. As this comes

in, it will raise the temperatures

0:47:160:47:21

probably to around 13. Doesn't sound

great but that's because it's also

0:47:210:47:25

bringing a fair bit of cloud and

rain. Look how the milder air travel

0:47:250:47:29

is that bit further north. Not quite

getting into the far north of

0:47:290:47:34

England, Scotland and Northern

Ireland but it won't be as cold as

0:47:340:47:37

it has been. This weekend we have

the rain pushing north, it will turn

0:47:370:47:42

milder, because it's bringing in the

milder air from the Atlantic, but

0:47:420:47:45

also there will be sunny spells to

look forward to.

0:47:450:47:49

I'm not sure I can remember the last

time you said that, Carol, thank you

0:47:500:47:54

very much.

0:47:540:47:55

Steph's here.

0:47:550:47:57

Reacting to Donald Trump's export

tariffs?

0:47:570:48:00

Most of Donald Trump's tweets are

controversial but the ones around

0:48:000:48:04

trade have got the business world

worried. Let me tell you about that.

0:48:040:48:08

Donald Trump has posted several

tweets about the way the US trades

0:48:080:48:12

with the rest of the world

in the last few days.

0:48:120:48:15

A lot of what he's said has been

about protecting American jobs

0:48:150:48:18

by putting import tariffs

on things like steel,

0:48:180:48:20

aluminium and European cars.

0:48:200:48:21

That would push up the price

of those imports and make it more

0:48:210:48:25

attractive for Americans to buy

American-made stuff,

0:48:250:48:27

and that could have

impact here in the UK.

0:48:270:48:30

We sell around £360 million worth

of steel to the US each year,

0:48:300:48:34

and the British car industry,

which employs nearly

0:48:340:48:37

one million people, sold

more than 200,000 cars

0:48:370:48:39

to the US last year.

0:48:390:48:47

There's lots of concern about what

trade tariffs could mean.

0:48:500:48:52

Kevin Doran is Managing Director

AJ Bell Investments.

0:48:520:48:56

Thanks for joining us.

Good morning.

Why is this such a big deal?

Donald

0:48:560:49:02

Trump is involved basically.

Essentially it's the initial volley

0:49:020:49:05

on what could be a trade war. The EU

will potentially retaliate and then

0:49:050:49:11

of course you're dealing with

someone who doesn't like to

0:49:110:49:15

negotiate and leads through bravado

and then you could have a tit for

0:49:150:49:18

tat war on trade tariffs and quotas.

This causes uncertainty for

0:49:180:49:23

business, which they hate.

It does.

How much is the US worth to the UK?

0:49:230:49:32

We're talking billions and billions

in terms of the amount of trade that

0:49:320:49:36

takes place between countries. It's

not just the UK/ US story,

0:49:360:49:40

essentially this is politics. It

interferes with the business world

0:49:400:49:45

but this is Donald Trump saying

thank you to the rustbelt because

0:49:450:49:48

without the key states of Michigan,

Pennsylvania, Wisconsin we wouldn't

0:49:480:49:53

be talking about President Trump, we

would be talking about President

0:49:530:49:57

Clinton.

What happens next, now he has done

0:49:570:50:00

these tweets, what will happen?

To

be fair, it didn't need the tweets

0:50:000:50:04

to bring it to our attention. This

has been going on for about a year

0:50:040:50:09

now but it's now coming to a head

and he needs to decide whether he

0:50:090:50:13

will impose tariffs or quotas in the

next couple of weeks. The next stage

0:50:130:50:17

will be how the EU retaliates. The

EU has come out and said they will

0:50:170:50:21

look to go for tit for tat tariffs.

They will go for political items.

0:50:210:50:28

Orange juice, affecting Florida.

They will go for jeans, affecting

0:50:280:50:33

California. And then the rustbelt

with things like Harley-Davidson and

0:50:330:50:37

Jack Daniels in Kentucky. It is a

political trade war as well as an

0:50:370:50:43

economic one.

It could be a while

before we see any tariffs coming in?

0:50:430:50:48

Unfortunately one of the quirks of

the US system is the president can

0:50:480:50:51

almost unilaterally impose tariffs.

Then you go to the WTO and an

0:50:510:51:01

arbitration process. The last time

this was done by President Bush in

0:51:010:51:04

2002 it took 20 months for that to

go through the WTO. But even then,

0:51:040:51:10

and this was steel tariffs imposed,

it hit the US economy more because

0:51:100:51:15

they are more involved in

construction and calm any factoring.

0:51:150:51:19

There's more jobs in those

industries than in the steel

0:51:190:51:22

industry -- car manufacturing.

Often

we see with companies worried about

0:51:220:51:26

Brexit, they will look for

opportunities elsewhere, so in some

0:51:260:51:30

ways it could be helpful for the UK

because we could be more

0:51:300:51:33

entrepreneurial?

It's certainly

going to happen while we're part of

0:51:330:51:37

the EU, so we will have to respond

as part of the EU negotiation. Don't

0:51:370:51:42

get me wrong, there's too much steel

on the planet. The Chinese, in order

0:51:420:51:47

to basically build the country they

have over the past 20 have massively

0:51:470:51:52

increased the amount of steel they

produce and now have a slowdown in

0:51:520:51:55

Chinese construction meaning you

have these creation facilities for

0:51:550:52:00

steel and they are looking to put it

elsewhere in the world. That's why

0:52:000:52:04

when you look at what's happening in

the US political system, the likes

0:52:040:52:08

of Paul Ryan saying to Trump, there

is too much steel in the world but

0:52:080:52:12

we shouldn't be doing this through

tariffs, we should do it through

0:52:120:52:16

quotas instead.

Interesting, we'll

see how this plays out, Kevin,

0:52:160:52:20

thanks.

0:52:200:52:21

An exhibition celebrating the works

of Picasso has opened

0:52:210:52:23

at the Tate Modern in London.

0:52:230:52:25

It's a look at his art from 1932

0:52:250:52:27

and there's one very distinct

influence.

0:52:270:52:29

His young lover, at

the time kept secret

0:52:290:52:31

from his wife, inspired

what would go on to be some

0:52:310:52:34

of his most celebrated works.

0:52:340:52:40

One recently sold at auction

for a European record

0:52:400:52:42

of £49 million.

0:52:420:52:43

Here's our arts correspondent,

David Sillito.

0:52:430:52:50

There's a lot of emotion in this

exhibition. It's kind of into lust

0:52:550:53:03

and life. There's also drama.

Normally a Tate show would be a rip

0:53:030:53:13

respect of a life's work but this is

just one year of Picasso's and that

0:53:130:53:17

year is 1932. This is Picasso and

this is his wife, Olga, but when you

0:53:170:53:24

look at the paintings, it's another

face. Wherever you look you see the

0:53:240:53:33

same shock of blonde hair, the same

profile. And here she is again, the

0:53:330:53:39

same hair, the same profile. We're

not looking at Picasso's wife here,

0:53:390:53:48

though, this is married to raise

Walter. And this is married to

0:53:480:53:52

raise's granddaughter, Diana. Two

generations have passed but you can

0:53:520:53:55

probably see a certain family

likeness.

When I think of it as a

0:53:550:54:01

granddaughter when I walk into an

exhibition like this is it's not

0:54:010:54:09

testimony to a great artist, it's a

testimony to an encounter.

She is

0:54:090:54:13

everywhere, and accession, Picasso

was approaching 50 when the affair

0:54:130:54:18

began and Marie trees was a

teenager. She was very young, she

0:54:180:54:25

was a teenager?

She was 17.5. She's

excepting the idea to see him again

0:54:250:54:31

the following day. She was young but

also adventurous. If a relationship

0:54:310:54:39

can bring you to an extraordinary

level of life experience, I could

0:54:390:54:43

never judge that.

London's Tate

gallery honours Picassos.

These days

0:54:430:54:48

we've become used to anyway of

seeing, today this could go for £100

0:54:480:54:55

million but that's the art market.

This is the story of the man and the

0:54:550:55:01

art and the paintings. David

Sillito, BBC News.

0:55:010:55:05

Extraordinary amounts of money. We

have good news for music fans.

0:55:050:55:09

Regulators are cracking down

0:55:090:55:10

on so-called secondary ticket

providers that re-sell tickets

0:55:100:55:12

for sold out shows

and inflated prices.

0:55:120:55:14

Many artists like Ed

Sheeran are opposed

0:55:140:55:16

to their practices, which can often

see tickets selling for far more

0:55:160:55:20

than their face value,

he now insists that four forms of ID

0:55:200:55:23

are shown by fans at his concerts.

0:55:230:55:31

Lots of you getting in touch about

this, you feel strongly about it.

0:55:370:55:42

Paying for Foo Fighters tickets, I

pay double the price on a certain

0:55:420:55:45

site because I wanted to see them

and the official site sold out in

0:55:450:55:49

minutes.

They resold tickets for the original

0:55:490:55:54

price. Lots of artists are getting

involved in solving the problem,

0:55:540:55:58

aren't they?

300 pounds for Gaga

tickets, they were £46 each face

0:55:580:56:06

value. Went on sale 10am, straight

on the site, never again. This

0:56:060:56:11

person said they were too ill to go

to the gig so they were unused. Many

0:56:110:56:16

people saying about the time that

tickets go on sale, people are at

0:56:160:56:21

work, they disappear completely and

they can only get them through these

0:56:210:56:25

sites.

So many people have been in this

0:56:440:56:48

situation. A lot of ticket tourism

goes on. People have said they come

0:56:480:56:52

on holiday, one says Canada, they

spend £500 to go and see Liverpool

0:56:520:56:57

against Bournemouth in the Premier

League, which is over the odds, but

0:56:570:57:01

they come to watch the football so

they're willing to pay whatever the

0:57:010:57:04

see it.

I would love to

0:57:041:00:26

in half an hour.

1:00:261:00:27

Plenty more on our website

at the usual address.

1:00:271:00:30

Now, though, it's back

to Dan and Louise.

1:00:301:00:32

Bye for now.

1:00:321:00:33

Hello - this is Breakfast,

with Dan Walker and Louise Minchin.

1:00:541:00:58

The suspected poisoning of a Russian

spy and his daughter.

1:00:581:01:01

The government will hold

an emergency meeting of the Cobra

1:01:011:01:04

committee this morning.

1:01:041:01:04

The pair remain critically

ill in hospital -

1:01:041:01:06

counter-terrorism police have now

taken over the investigation.

1:01:061:01:14

Good morning - it's

Wednesday 7 March.

1:01:251:01:27

Also this morning:

1:01:271:01:35

Lunch with the Queen and talks

with the Prime Minister -

1:01:361:01:39

Saudi's Crown prince arrives

in Britain amid protests

1:01:391:01:41

about his human rights record.

1:01:411:01:43

Claire paid £1,400 for four

Ed Sheeran tickets on a ticket

1:01:431:01:46

resale site - the advertising

watchdog orders a crackdown

1:01:461:01:49

on hidden fees.

1:01:491:01:52

I felt I had done something wrong.

1:01:521:01:55

When I realised that I had not,

actually, that this whole practice

1:01:551:01:58

was very deceptive.

1:01:581:02:03

The government wants

to make our everyday items that

1:02:031:02:05

connect to the internet-

like security cameras,

1:02:051:02:07

music speakers and baby monitors -

safer from hackers.

1:02:071:02:10

I'll find out why.

1:02:101:02:11

In sport, Liverpool

are the first British team

1:02:111:02:13

through to the last

1:02:131:02:14

eight of the Champions League.

1:02:141:02:15

They'll be joined by holders

Real Madrid, who beat

1:02:151:02:18

Paris Saint Germain in a smoky

stadium in Paris after flares

1:02:181:02:21

were let off by the home fans.

1:02:211:02:23

And how a police officer paralysed

in the Westminster Bridge terror

1:02:231:02:26

attack has moved back

in with his family -

1:02:261:02:28

thanks to the DIY SOS team.

1:02:281:02:33

And Carol has the weather:

1:02:331:02:41

Good morning. It is a chilly start

to some of us. Most of us to

1:02:411:02:48

relatively mild start. There will be

lengthy sunny spells as well but

1:02:481:02:55

tonight, some of us could see some

more snow and I will tell you where

1:02:551:02:59

in 15 minutes.

1:02:591:03:00

First, our main story.

1:03:001:03:02

The Home Secretary will chair

a emergency meeting

1:03:021:03:04

of the Government's COBRA committee

this morning to discuss

1:03:041:03:07

the suspected poisoning of a former

Russian agent and his daughter.

1:03:071:03:10

(PRES2) Sergei and Yulia Skripal

are still in a critical condition

1:03:101:03:16

-- Sergei and Yulia Skripal

are still in a critical condition

1:03:161:03:19

after being found unconscious

on Sunday in Salisbury.

1:03:191:03:22

Russia has denied any wrongdoing,

but the Foreign Secretary Boris

1:03:221:03:24

Johnson has warned of 'robust'

action should the Kremlin be found

1:03:241:03:27

to be involved.

1:03:271:03:28

Tom Burridge reports.

1:03:281:03:34

Uncomfortable questions linger

here in Wiltshire where a former

1:03:341:03:37

Russian agent and his

daughter were struck down

1:03:371:03:45

Yulia Skripal lives in Russia

and was visiting her father,

1:03:451:03:47

Sergei, in Salisbury.

1:03:471:03:49

This CCTV footage shows

them just half an hour

1:03:491:03:52

before locals alerted the police

that they were unconscious

1:03:521:03:54

on a park bench.

1:03:541:04:02

Sergei Skripal was an officer

in Russian military intelligence

1:04:051:04:08

but in 2004 he was arrested

and later convicted

1:04:081:04:10

for working for MI6.

1:04:101:04:11

In 2010, he was handed over

to Britain as part of a spy swap.

1:04:111:04:15

The Russian government said

suggestions it was involved

1:04:151:04:17

are completely untrue but the murder

in London in 2006

1:04:171:04:20

of former Russian spy

Alexander Litvinenko means suspicion

1:04:201:04:22

is almost inevitable.

1:04:221:04:30

Should evidence emerge that implies

state responsibility

1:04:311:04:33

then Her Majesty 's

Government will respond

1:04:331:04:35

appropriately and robustly.

1:04:351:04:35

And the ramifications

for Russian-UK relations are huge.

1:04:351:04:43

If Russia is behind it,

it means they are taking things

1:04:431:04:46

to a whole new level.

1:04:461:04:49

This is in fact a kind

of declaration of war.

1:04:491:04:51

Experts at this military research

centre have been trying to work out

1:04:511:04:55

whether toxic substances

were used to try and kill

1:04:551:04:57

a former Russian agent

and his daughter,

1:04:571:04:59

who are now in hospital

fighting to stay alive.

1:04:591:05:02

Tom Burridge, BBC News.

1:05:021:05:04

In a moment we'll get

the latest from Moscow

1:05:041:05:07

with our Correspondent Sarah

Rainsford, but first let's go live

1:05:071:05:11

to Salisbury and Laila Nathoo.

1:05:111:05:19

Telstra that more about the police

investigation. The investigation is

1:05:191:05:24

being headed up by counterterror

police. The Wiltshire police were

1:05:241:05:30

handing it over to counterterrorism

police, not because this is being

1:05:301:05:35

treated as a terrorist act, but

because it's an unusual incident.

1:05:351:05:40

They have the resources to try to

deal with it. Late last night, a

1:05:401:05:44

flurry of activity, and cordons in

place. There are still police

1:05:441:05:52

cordons in place. Last night, those

cordons were widened.

1:05:521:06:00

cordons were widened. Mask -- this

morning, those cordons seem to have

1:06:001:06:03

slimmed back down. Trying to

identify the substance that the

1:06:031:06:12

couple were exposed to. That could

still take a number of days.

1:06:121:06:21

still take a number of days.

Sarah,

the Russian embassy say they were

1:06:211:06:23

impressed. Talking about anti-

Russian campaigns. I wonder how this

1:06:231:06:29

news has gone down in Russia. It

seems we have lost her. Not quite

1:06:291:06:37

sure what happened. We will try to

get back to Moscow at some stage. We

1:06:371:06:47

will be speaking about this

throughout the programme.

1:06:471:06:50

Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince,

Mohammed Bin Salman,

1:06:501:06:54

is beginning a three-day

visit to Britain.

1:06:541:06:56

He'll have lunch with the Queen

and hold talks with the Prime

1:06:561:06:59

Minister.

1:06:591:06:59

The Government regards

Saudi Arabia as an important

1:06:591:07:01

strategic ally but protest marches

are planned by campaign

1:07:011:07:04

groups angered by the war

in Yemen, where the Kingdom

1:07:041:07:07

is fighting rebels.

1:07:071:07:07

Here's our security

correspondent Frank Gardner:

1:07:071:07:09

Embarking on his first foreign trip

since becoming Crown Prince,

1:07:091:07:12

Saudi Arabia's Mohammed Bin Salman

is a man in a hurry.

1:07:121:07:20

After stopping over in Egypt this

week, he is coming to Britain

1:07:201:07:23

to promote his vision of a new,

tolerance Saudi Arabia.

1:07:231:07:26

He's lifted the ban

on women driving from June.

1:07:261:07:28

Cinemas and entertainment

are being introduced,

1:07:281:07:30

and a new mega-city will be built.

1:07:301:07:32

He also imprisoned without trial

hundreds of wealthy Saudis in this

1:07:321:07:35

Riyadh hotel, accusing them

of corruption, something

1:07:351:07:36

that's worrying foreign investors.

1:07:361:07:43

Defence and security contracts

dominate ties with Britain.

1:07:431:07:45

The UK supplies the Saudi air force

with warplanes and munitions.

1:07:451:07:48

In neighbouring Yemen,

Saudi-led airstrikes on

1:07:481:07:52

Iranian-backed Houthi

rebels are being blamed

1:07:521:07:55

for mounting casualties.

1:07:551:07:58

That's prompted calls by some

to break off relations with Saudi.

1:07:581:08:01

A protest is scheduled for later

today outside Downing Street.

1:08:011:08:09

But oil-rich Saudi Arabia

is Britain's biggest

1:08:091:08:11

Arab trading partner.

1:08:111:08:12

Thousands of jobs depend on it.

1:08:121:08:14

In a post-Brexit world,

Britain is looking to boost

1:08:141:08:20

alliances like this one,

1:08:201:08:21

while Saudi Arabia is looking

for foreign investment

1:08:211:08:23

to find jobs for its

overwhelmingly young population.

1:08:231:08:26

When Crown Prince Mohammed meets

leaders in London today,

1:08:261:08:28

his message will be "Saudi Arabia

is open to business" but this

1:08:281:08:31

relationship will always be

a controversial one.

1:08:311:08:33

Frank Gardner, BBC News.

1:08:331:08:40

Action's being taken

against so-called "secondary

1:08:401:08:42

ticketing" companies over what's

being described as "misleading

1:08:421:08:44

pricing information"

on their websites.

1:08:441:08:47

The Advertising Standards

Authority says the firms -

1:08:471:08:50

which re-sell tickets

to sold-out shows -

1:08:501:08:52

have to be more upfront

with customers about hidden fees.

1:08:521:08:54

Our business and consumer

correspondent Nina Warhurst reports:

1:08:541:09:02

# I was born in a cross-fire

hurricane...#.

1:09:041:09:06

The Rolling Stones are coming

to town and I am keen to be there.

1:09:061:09:10

The secondary ticketing site,

Viagogo, is reselling a ticket

1:09:101:09:12

for £141 but when I go

to pay this happens.

1:09:121:09:15

£47 VAT booking fee,

so a ticket that we thought

1:09:151:09:18

was costing us £141

is now almost 200 quid.

1:09:181:09:24

These nasty surprises are common.

1:09:241:09:32

Claire used Viagogo to buy

four Ed Sheeran tickets.

1:09:361:09:39

She thought it was costing less

than £300, but that was for one

1:09:391:09:43

ticket and, after fees were added,

more than £1400 left her account.

1:09:431:09:46

I rang my daughter crying,

and I said, like, you know,

1:09:461:09:49

and thought that I had done...I

think the aweful feeling is that

1:09:491:09:52

I felt I had done something wrong.

1:09:521:09:54

When I realised that I had not,

actually, that this whole practice

1:09:541:09:58

was very deceptive.

1:09:581:09:58

We contacted Viagogo for a response

but did not get a reply.

1:09:581:10:02

Claire did get her money back and,

from today, new guidelines could see

1:10:021:10:10

secondary sellers prosecuted

if they mislead consumers.

1:10:101:10:12

We are saying they have got to be

much more clear and upfront

1:10:121:10:16

about the prices that we are paying

when we buy tickets

1:10:161:10:22

through their site and,

in a nutshell, we are saying

1:10:221:10:25

that the price that we see

when we see it first imput how many

1:10:251:10:32

tickets we want should be the price

that we pay at the end.

1:10:321:10:34

If you have already forked out fees

to see Mick and the gang,

1:10:341:10:38

you can appeal them and next

time they're on tour,

1:10:381:10:41

the ticket price you see

should be what you get.

1:10:411:10:46

The Chancellor Phillip Hammond

will today outline his vision

1:10:461:10:49

of an EU free trade deal

for the financial services

1:10:491:10:55

sector after Brexit.

1:10:551:10:56

Mr Hammond, who wants

special access to the EU's

1:10:561:10:59

single market, is expected

to use his speech in London to focus

1:10:591:11:02

on an agreement which he says

will be of mutual interest

1:11:021:11:06

to both parties.

1:11:061:11:06

The European Commission has

previously said that a free trade

1:11:061:11:14

deal including the City

is not an option.

1:11:141:11:16

A BBC investigation has found more

than 1,500 ambulances

1:11:161:11:18

were deployed to just

five people last year.

1:11:181:11:21

The figures show one

patient in London

1:11:211:11:22

dialled for an ambulance

more than 3,500 times

1:11:221:11:29

over 12 months.

1:11:291:11:30

The NHS say frequent callers

are not "time wasters",

1:11:301:11:32

but people with a genuine need,

although they are costing the health

1:11:321:11:40

service millions

of pounds each year.

1:11:401:11:48

Football freestyle at John

Farnsworth did a record of keeping

1:11:531:11:59

copies up Mount Everest. All the

time, he will be raising money for

1:11:591:12:07

the Alzheimer's Society. And there

he is. Returning to one of the main

1:12:071:12:14

stories this morning.

1:12:141:12:19

The 32 year old Crown Prince

of Saudi Arabia has styled himself

1:12:191:12:22

as something of a reformer

in his home country -

1:12:221:12:25

he's lifted a ban on women drivers

and is trying to turn the economy

1:12:251:12:29

away from oil.

1:12:291:12:30

He's starting a three-day

visit to Britain today

1:12:301:12:32

having lunch with the Queen

and talks with the Prime Minister.

1:12:321:12:35

But he'll be met by protestors

angered by Saudi's role

1:12:351:12:37

in the war in Yemen.

1:12:371:12:39

The conflict's been described

by the UN as the world's worst man

1:12:391:12:42

made humanitarian crisis.

1:12:421:12:43

Journalist and Middle East

Commentator Baria Alamuddin joins us

1:12:431:12:45

from London

1:12:451:12:46

And thank you for joining us. I know

you are in the process of writing a

1:12:461:12:50

book about Saudi women. Other

changes going on? There have been so

1:12:501:12:54

many concerns about the way women

are treated.

Definitely there are

1:12:541:12:58

changes. I stay away from Saudi for

two months and I go back. I see a

1:12:581:13:07

completely different Saudi Arabia. I

just came back from Saudi Arabia and

1:13:071:13:14

I attended --I attended a game at

the stadium and the girls were there

1:13:141:13:19

next to the boys, achieving and

having a great time so as far as

1:13:191:13:25

women are concerned, the social

attitude. The role in society is

1:13:251:13:32

changing very rapidly. Almost 67% of

graduates in the universities are

1:13:321:13:37

wearing. I met women who were

working. And women were up to 20% of

1:13:371:13:50

women. 70% of the population under

the age of 30 is they do like this

1:13:501:14:02

Crown Prince.

Your daughter is a

leading human rights lawyer. There

1:14:021:14:06

are very serious concerned about

Saudi Arabia's human rights record.

1:14:061:14:13

Are you concerned?

Yes, one is

always concerned at the lack of

1:14:131:14:18

human rights in many areas of the

world. Unfortunately, human rights

1:14:181:14:22

are not improving. One is always

hoping things will change. This is

1:14:221:14:29

one of the main concerns. Some of

the protesters today next to Downing

1:14:291:14:37

Street in the Parliament, they will

be protesting that. There is a lack

1:14:371:14:45

of progress towards peace. Yemen is

one of the poorest countries in the

1:14:451:14:49

world. They see it as a necessity

war. They feel encircled by Iran and

1:14:491:14:55

Iran controls Lebanon and indeed

controlling -- try to control Yemen,

1:14:551:15:03

control Iraq, to take charge of

Bahrain. They feel quite scared and

1:15:031:15:10

they have received around 90

ballistic missiles. I was on the

1:15:101:15:13

border with Yemen and I saw and

heard the fighting. It's not a very

1:15:131:15:20

clean war, it's a bad war and one is

hoping for peace to arrive soon.

1:15:201:15:29

Do you think in this visit the

British government will be in a

1:15:291:15:32

position to talk to him about how

this war is being conducted, how

1:15:321:15:36

these battles are being conducted?

I'm sure this will be on top of the

1:15:361:15:40

agenda. I think the crown Prince,

along with signing about £100

1:15:401:15:45

billion of deals with the

government, they will be talking

1:15:451:15:49

about Iran and how the government of

the UK can help contain Iran in the

1:15:491:15:56

area. One of them of course will be

Yemen and ending the war in Yemen. I

1:15:561:16:03

know for a fact of the UK government

has been very active in trying to

1:16:031:16:07

find solutions for that. It will be

on top of the agenda. Also on top of

1:16:071:16:14

the agenda will be what the UK

government can do to help in various

1:16:141:16:18

new ventures in Saudi Arabia,

including entertainment for example.

1:16:181:16:24

I had a briefing with the

ambassador, how UK ambassador in

1:16:241:16:30

Saudi Arabia, and indeed he was very

excited about the changes in Saudi

1:16:301:16:35

Arabia and also about the

possibilities to be signed. This

1:16:351:16:40

will be substantial for the economy

of this country and at a time of

1:16:401:16:45

Brexit, God knows we need it.

Thank

you for your time this morning on

1:16:451:16:49

Breakfast.

1:16:491:16:50

Here's Carol with a look

at this morning's weather.

1:16:501:16:56

I've been admiring that picture all

morning, beautiful this morning?

1:16:561:17:00

It is, will change it for the next

bulletin so we get some variety

1:17:011:17:06

through the morning. The forecast

today, sunshine and showers. For

1:17:061:17:12

many we will see lengthy spells of

sunshine and compared to yesterday

1:17:121:17:15

when we had blizzards in parts of

Scotland, you will really notice the

1:17:151:17:19

difference. First thing this morning

we have some wintryness in the

1:17:191:17:24

forecast. In the north and

north-west of Scotland, showery

1:17:241:17:27

outbreaks mixed in with some sleet

and snow. The same for Argyll and

1:17:271:17:34

Bute and down to Dumfries and

Galloway, showers fizzling out.

1:17:341:17:40

Showers in Northern Ireland, pepping

up in the west through the day, and

1:17:401:17:44

scattered showers in Wales and

southern England. At the moment we

1:17:441:17:47

have a band of rain moving steadily

away from East Anglia, taking a wee

1:17:471:17:52

while before it clears. Behind that

in East Anglia we will be left with

1:17:521:17:57

a veil of cloud. For the rest of us,

this afternoon a lot of dry weather

1:17:571:18:01

and a fair bit of sunshine and

compared to yesterday, what a

1:18:011:18:06

difference in parts of north-east

Scotland. 4-6, in the south, about

1:18:061:18:11

ten, but still windy in the far

north of Scotland. Through this

1:18:111:18:15

evening and overnight, a quiet night

to start with, dry weather around

1:18:151:18:19

with the risk of ice on untreated

surfaces and maybe some frost but

1:18:191:18:23

then we have a line of showery rain

coming in from the south-west

1:18:231:18:27

pushing east. In the milder

conditions in the south, that will

1:18:271:18:31

be rain, but as it moves across

parts of central and north Wales

1:18:311:18:35

into the Midlands and potentially

Lincolnshire by this time tomorrow,

1:18:351:18:38

we could be looking at some snow and

there's the potential for the snow

1:18:381:18:42

to be destructive. The timing of it

still open to question but this is

1:18:421:18:46

what we think at the moment. We

continue with showers further north

1:18:461:18:50

and temperatures again mostly in

towns and cities above freezing, but

1:18:501:18:54

lower of course in the countryside.

Tomorrow we could start with the

1:18:541:18:58

snow in Lincolnshire but it moves

away through the morning, leaving a

1:18:581:19:02

largely dry date again with a lot of

sunshine. Our low pressure area

1:19:021:19:07

centred across north-west Scotland

will throw in showers across western

1:19:071:19:11

Scotland and the Outer Hebrides at

times. Temperature wise, five or six

1:19:111:19:16

in the north, maybe ten further

south. As we move into Friday

1:19:161:19:21

morning, a chilly start with the

risk of ice here and there. A lot of

1:19:211:19:25

dry weather with sunshine around and

then low pressure comes along and

1:19:251:19:28

spoils it in the south. This low

pressure will bring in more rain,

1:19:281:19:32

which could be heavy. It will bring

windy conditions and milder air. You

1:19:321:19:37

can see we have ten and 11 in the

south, and as this band of rain

1:19:371:19:43

moves north, we will see the

temperature rising a bit but it

1:19:431:19:46

won't get into the far north of

Scotland through the weekend.

1:19:461:19:49

Thanks, Carol, I look forward to a

new picture in about half an hour.

I

1:19:511:19:55

had better get my skates on!

Good

luck with your skating!

1:19:551:19:59

Looking at the papers. 1-storey

dominating here. Terror police take

1:19:591:20:08

over spy poison case in the Guardian

and this is a picture on the front

1:20:081:20:12

page of many of the newspapers,

Yulia on the front pages, they were

1:20:121:20:19

found on a bench in Salisbury with

her father, Sergei Skripal. Boris

1:20:191:20:26

Johnson and the threat to boycott

World Cup. Acclaim he ordered

1:20:261:20:32

poisoning of a Russian double agent.

The front pages are all the same.

1:20:321:20:38

MI5 believes Russians tried to kill

former spy and it's the front page

1:20:381:20:43

of the Daily Telegraph as well. Also

making the papers this morning is

1:20:431:20:47

Bill Turnbull. He revealed yesterday

that he has been diagnosed with

1:20:471:20:55

prostate cancer and he's been

talking about the amazing amount of

1:20:551:21:02

messages Breakfast viewers have been

sending him.

We were overwhelmed by

1:21:021:21:06

the number of messages.

He was

involved in the programme Stand Up

1:21:061:21:13

to Cancer on Channel 4. He

1:21:131:21:17

thank you so much to everyone who

has been in touch. It means an awful

1:21:191:21:24

lot. If you weren't watching

yesterday, he is really positive.

He

1:21:241:21:29

sounded incredibly upbeat. He is a

big softy.

The important message, as

1:21:291:21:34

he has been talking about, get

yourself checked.

If you have

1:21:341:21:38

worrying symptoms then go and get

checked.

Good to see him in the

1:21:381:21:42

papers today. Just seeing him back

again it has brought a smile to many

1:21:421:21:47

people's faces.

We are still in

touch, as you note.

If you wind the

1:21:471:21:53

lottery, they are in a syndicate

together, so if you tune in on

1:21:531:21:57

Monday and she is disappeared then

you know why -- as you know.

Lovett!

1:21:571:22:04

-- love it!

1:22:041:22:07

Almost a year ago, the life

of police officer Kris Aves changed

1:22:071:22:10

forever when he was injured

1:22:101:22:12

in the terror attack on Westminster

Bridge.

1:22:121:22:13

He was left paralysed

in a wheelchair and no longer able

1:22:131:22:16

to live at home with his family.

1:22:161:22:18

But then, a call to help

by the DIY SOS team

1:22:181:22:21

was met with the biggest

reponse for volunteers

1:22:211:22:23

in the show's history.

1:22:231:22:25

Daniella Relph has the story.

1:22:251:22:28

Thursday, the 23rd of March. The

morning after the Westminster Bridge

1:22:281:22:33

attack.

Five people died and 40

people were injured, some of them

1:22:331:22:38

suffering what has been described as

codgers traffic injuries.

One of

1:22:381:22:44

those with catastrophic injuries was

Metropolitan Police constable Kris

1:22:441:22:47

Aves. Critically injured as he

walked across the bridge. For much

1:22:471:22:51

of the past year he's been in Stoke

Mandeville hospital. He dislocated

1:22:511:22:55

this vertebrae, damaged this

spinal-cord and is now in a

1:22:551:22:59

wheelchair. But what he wanted more

than anything was to get home to

1:22:591:23:03

this partner and two young children.

It makes me sad when I think

1:23:031:23:08

forward. To go swimming, I don't

know how I'm going to be in a pool

1:23:081:23:13

in a fun session with them. I won't

be able to stand up and kick a

1:23:131:23:18

football with them. I kind of just,

feel, you know, it's been taken away

1:23:181:23:25

from you and it's not fair.

The kids

ask a lot of questions about stuff,

1:23:251:23:33

why did daddy get hit, was he not

looking when he crossed the road,

1:23:331:23:37

things like that, it's quite hard to

answer.

At the end of last year the

1:23:371:23:42

DIY SOS team stepped in.

This is DIY SOS!

1:23:421:23:48

They took the family's north London

home and transformed it. They asked

1:23:481:23:53

volunteers to help. The programme

had never had such an enormous

1:23:531:23:57

response.

Sometimes we look at the

police and the people that go out in

1:23:571:24:01

the emergency services and do what

they do for us but when you get

1:24:011:24:05

behind every person there is a

family, they're not just uniforms,

1:24:051:24:08

their families are affected too and

what happened to Kris had a massive

1:24:081:24:12

effect on the family.

We had

exclusive access to the build and

1:24:121:24:16

the team's work. Doorways were

widened, allowing access for Kris's

1:24:161:24:21

wheelchair. In the kitchen surfaces

were lowered and space made to cook.

1:24:211:24:26

A lift was built, the first of its

kind in a family home so Kris can

1:24:261:24:32

move between floors.

In the garden, a complete redesign.

1:24:321:24:35

All to ensure that there is space to

play with his son and daughter.

1:24:351:24:39

This entire project has been about

creating a family home, a place

1:24:391:24:43

where everyone can be involved and

live properly together again.

1:24:431:24:48

The whole build took nine days to

complete, and depended totally on

1:24:481:24:53

the generosity of others.

Its

everyday there is just ten, ten, 20

1:24:531:24:58

people, do you need a hand, do you

need a toilet, do you need a

1:24:581:25:03

decorator?

And every day we get cake

delivered.

Cake is crucial.

That's

1:25:031:25:09

how it works, cake and teas.

Tonight

the programme will reveal what Kris

1:25:091:25:15

Aves made of his new home and the

impact of one family whose life was

1:25:151:25:19

so changed by evidence of almost a

year ago. Daniela Relph, BBC

1:25:191:25:24

News, North London. You are a big

fan of that programme, aren't you?

1:25:241:25:29

I've got my tissues ready for

tonight.

1:25:291:25:30

You can see what the finished

product looks like on DIY SOS,

1:25:301:25:34

tonight at 8pm on BBC One.

1:25:341:25:42

We are talking about secondary

ticket websites today. So many

1:25:441:25:47

people getting in touch who have

either been bruised or seen the cost

1:25:471:25:51

of tickets and not gone for it.

Sharon says, I've not paid over the

1:25:511:25:55

odds but I've gone online to buy

them as soon as they become

1:25:551:25:58

available and a triple the price on

a Recital website immediately. Some

1:25:581:26:02

of them are owned by Ticketmaster

and the like -- resale website. Then

1:26:021:26:07

you go and they are sold out on

Ticketmaster and you go to the

1:26:071:26:11

secondary sites owned by

Ticketmaster and they are available

1:26:111:26:14

but at an increased price. Sandra

said I was lucky to get £50 tickets

1:26:141:26:18

for a show, their last ever, sold

out in 20 minutes, lots of fans

1:26:181:26:24

missed out because they went

straight on the Ticketmaster resale

1:26:241:26:27

website straight after four far

higher.

You sit there and you wait

1:26:271:26:31

for the site to go live and the

tickets are gone within two or three

1:26:311:26:35

minutes and you are left with no

Auldana give.

-- no alternative. One

1:26:351:26:41

other story, doggy speak. Can you do

it?

I can't do it unless they are

1:26:411:26:48

here.

Is it high-pitched or low?

Probably high-pitched.

Do you go

1:26:481:26:53

low?

We go high as well but our guy

was fixing the cook the other day,

1:26:531:27:00

not a dog owner, and myself and the

children were doing the dog speak

1:27:001:27:04

and he looked at us like we were

absolutely mad -- the cooker.

It

1:27:041:27:10

turns out you're not.

If you talk to

your dog in Doggies speak then they

1:27:101:27:15

love it.

They might look at you stranger on

1:27:151:27:19

occasion but it boosts the bond --

doggy speak.

1:27:191:27:23

Time now to get the news,

travel and weather where you are.

1:27:231:30:42

I'm back with the latest

from the BBC London newsroom

1:30:421:30:45

in half an hour.

1:30:451:30:46

Now, though, it's back

to Dan and Louise.

1:30:461:30:48

Bye for now.

1:30:481:30:49

Hello, this is Breakfast

with Dan Walker and Louise Minchin

1:30:531:30:56

Here's a summary of this morning's

main stories from BBC News.

1:30:561:31:00

The Home Secretary will chair

an emergency meeting

1:31:001:31:03

of the Government's COBRA committee

this morning to discuss

1:31:031:31:05

the suspected poisoning of a former

Russian agent and his daughter.

1:31:051:31:08

Sergei and Yulia Skripal

are still in a critical condition

1:31:081:31:11

after being found unconscious

on Sunday in Salisbury.

1:31:111:31:13

Counter-terrorism police have now

taken over the investigation.

1:31:131:31:17

Russia has denied any involvement.

1:31:171:31:22

Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince,

Mohammed Bin Salman,

1:31:221:31:24

is beginning a three-day

visit to Britain.

1:31:241:31:32

He'll have lunch with

the Queen and hold talks

1:31:351:31:37

with the Prime Minister.

1:31:371:31:38

The Government regards Saudi Arabia

as an important strategic ally

1:31:381:31:41

but protest marches are planned

by campaign groups angered

1:31:411:31:43

by the war in Yemen, where

the Kingdom is fighting rebels.

1:31:431:31:46

Action's being taken

against so-called "secondary

1:31:461:31:48

ticketing" companies over what's

being described as "misleading

1:31:481:31:50

pricing information"

on their websites.

1:31:501:31:58

The sites resell tickets

for sold-out shows

1:31:581:32:00

but the Advertising Standards Agency

says they have hidden charges

1:32:001:32:03

and sometimes don't even

guarantee entry to the gigs.

1:32:031:32:05

It follows an investigation

by Trading Standards

1:32:051:32:07

and The Competition

and Markets Authority.

1:32:071:32:09

The Chancellor Phillip Hammond

will today outline his vision

1:32:091:32:11

of an EU free trade deal

for the financial services

1:32:111:32:19

sector after Brexit.

1:32:241:32:24

Mr Hammond, who wants

special access to the EU's

1:32:241:32:27

single market, is expected

to use his speech in London to focus

1:32:271:32:30

on an agreement which he says

will be of mutual interest

1:32:301:32:33

to both parties.

1:32:331:32:34

The European Commission has

previously said that a free trade

1:32:341:32:37

deal including the City

is not an option.

1:32:371:32:39

The top economic adviser

to the White House, Gary Cohn,

1:32:391:32:42

has announced his resignation -

after failing to persuade

1:32:421:32:44

President Trump not to impose

significant tariffs on imports

1:32:441:32:46

of steel and aluminium.

1:32:461:32:49

Mr Cohn was regarded

by many business leaders

1:32:491:32:51

as a moderating influence

in the administration.He's

1:32:511:32:53

the latest in a long line of people

who've left the White House.

1:32:531:32:57

Craft brewing company Brewdog

is being criticised after unveiling

1:32:571:32:59

a new drink, in pink packaging,

which they're calling a 'beer

1:32:591:33:02

for girls'.

1:33:021:33:06

The company says it's

a satirical dig at lazy

1:33:061:33:09

marketing and stereotypes.

1:33:091:33:09

The beer will cost less for women

than men and proceeds will go

1:33:091:33:15

towards tackling gender inequality.

1:33:151:33:16

But some people on social

media have described

1:33:161:33:20

the campaign as "off the mark".

1:33:201:33:22

Last week, an image of 2-year-old

Parker Curry staring in awe

1:33:221:33:25

at Michelle Obama's official

portrait went viral.

1:33:251:33:27

Parker's mum revealed

that her little girl didn't know

1:33:271:33:29

who the former First Lady was -

she thought she was looking

1:33:291:33:32

at a queen.

1:33:321:33:40

Michelle Obama was

so touched by this,

1:33:421:33:44

that she invited Parker over this

week, for what ended up being a very

1:33:441:33:52

lovely dance party.

1:33:521:34:00

So, not the weather, the sport. I

got up to early today. We can switch

1:34:021:34:07

it up if you fancy.

I'm ten minutes

ahead of everything you see. This is

1:34:071:34:15

a key to it, isn't it?

He has had a

copy ten minutes early. Greetings

1:34:151:34:20

earlier. It's only 7:34 a.m..

Talking about Jurgen Klopp. They

1:34:201:34:32

would have had a bit of a party. He

says they are back when they are

1:34:321:34:37

very long. It's hard to disagree

because of the rich history that

1:34:371:34:41

Liverpool had bitten more recent

years,, this is what it has been

1:34:411:34:48

bought in to do. They put another

one ahead of them. One of five

1:34:481:34:56

British teams contesting the last

part of the Champions League.

1:34:561:35:02

They could afford to take it easy

against Porto last night.

1:35:021:35:05

Sadio Mane came closest to scoring,

but his effort hit the post,

1:35:051:35:08

nil-nil enough to see them

through after that huge scoreline

1:35:081:35:11

from teh first leg.

1:35:111:35:17

I think this year will be

longer, to be honest.

1:35:171:35:20

It should not a big surprise.

1:35:201:35:21

In the next round will

be very difficult.

1:35:211:35:29

I think that's clear.

1:35:291:35:31

We have a lot of good teams,

seven of the very good teams will be

1:35:311:35:35

then involved so maybe five of them,

for them I learned from England.

1:35:351:35:38

Let's make it easier, to be honest.

1:35:381:35:41

But I think we will have a chance,

for sure, to go to the semis then

1:35:411:35:44

and that is of course to tie.

1:35:441:35:48

Can Tottenham join them there, it's

locked at two all with the Italian

1:35:481:35:55

champions Juventus heading

into tonight's second leg.

1:35:551:36:03

Look at the scene in France

as Paris Saint Germain supporters

1:36:061:36:09

let off flares in the stadium

as they lost to Real Madrid.

1:36:091:36:13

Perhaps no wonder their keeper

failed to stop Cristiano Ronaldo's

1:36:131:36:15

header as smoke flooded the field,

as the holders go through.

1:36:151:36:18

Can Tottenham join them there, it's

locked at two all with the Italian

1:36:181:36:22

champions Juventus heading

into tonight's second leg.

1:36:221:36:24

By the looks of it

Mauricio Pochettino's been

1:36:241:36:26

doing his homework.

1:36:261:36:27

Looking very studious in training,

with Tottenham hoping to reach

1:36:271:36:30

the quarter finals for the second

time in their history.

1:36:301:36:33

England's women only need a point

from their match against USA tonight

1:36:331:36:37

to win the She Believes Cup.

1:36:371:36:38

The tournament features some

of the top sides in the world

1:36:381:36:41

and England have already beaten

France and drawn with Germany.

1:36:411:36:44

But the Americans are the highest

ranked team in the world,

1:36:441:36:47

toughest test yet for

new boss Phil Neville.

1:36:471:36:49

I see this game as a little bit of,

not where we can just go for it

1:36:491:36:54

really, in a way, and gamble

and risk, because you need to find

1:36:541:36:57

out about your players

in the biggest game.

1:36:571:36:59

This could be a World Cup final

in 12 months' time and I want to see

1:36:591:37:04

whether we can play this 12 months'

time in the biggest occasions

1:37:041:37:07

and I'm going to test

my players even more.

1:37:071:37:15

We had to shave this. At long last,

the youngest child in bother will

1:37:151:37:19

have a chance to represent England.

Amazing. At 71, he is going to get a

1:37:191:37:33

chance.

Mike has championed walking

football on Breakfast. Amazing

1:37:331:37:40

stuff.

1:37:401:37:45

England's cricketers had few

problems seeing off Australia

1:37:471:37:49

in a one day series earlier this

year but they're finding New Zeakand

1:37:491:37:53

a much tougher proposition.

1:37:531:37:54

-- Zealand.

1:37:541:37:54

The hosts have levelled the seresi

at 2-all with one to play

1:37:541:37:58

with England posted 334 thaks

to centuries from Jonny Bairstow

1:37:581:38:00

and Joe Root but the Black Caps

chased down the total.

1:38:001:38:07

Now, any idea who this is?

1:38:071:38:08

A famous British athlete,

who has been turned into a Barbie

1:38:081:38:11

doll to mark International

Women's Day tomorrow.

1:38:111:38:19

Nicola Adams, the first UK athlete

to form part of the 'Shero' range.

1:38:201:38:28

It's all about inspiring young

women, and breaking the mould

1:38:281:38:31

of what typical Barbies looked like.

1:38:311:38:37

Nicola is the first UK star to join

Barbie's 'Shero' range,

1:38:371:38:40

which is designed to

honour inspiring women.

1:38:401:38:42

The majority of women who suffer

from domestic violence aren't

1:38:421:38:45

reporting the abuse to the police,

according to a new survey.

1:38:451:38:48

The research, which was carried out

1:38:481:38:49

by Women's Aid, shows that just

under half of women in its refuges

1:38:491:38:53

make an official report.

1:38:531:38:54

Domestic abuse, which can

affect both men and women,

1:38:541:38:57

comes in many forms including

harassment and assault.

1:38:571:38:59

This is Emma, who shared

her story with us.

1:38:591:39:07

Sometimes a lot of the violence

was towards the children,

1:39:091:39:11

and it was me stepping in the way.

1:39:111:39:13

That's how it would turn onto me.

1:39:131:39:15

But, yeah, I feel a lot of regret.

1:39:151:39:23

A lot of regret.

1:39:241:39:28

At the end of the day

it is still the children's that

1:39:281:39:32

and I would have to live

with the fact that if he got

1:39:321:39:35

arrested and sent to prison,

that's taking the children's dad

1:39:351:39:38

away from them.

1:39:381:39:46

That was Emma, not her real name.

Joining us now as deputy chief

1:39:461:39:54

constable Louisa Rolf and the CEO of

Women's Aid,, Katie Ghose. There are

1:39:541:40:06

stats showing the number of victims

reporting domestic abuse is dropping

1:40:061:40:10

by police recording the highest ever

number domestic abuse incidents. How

1:40:101:40:15

can we square what seems to be

statistically things that do not

1:40:151:40:21

agree with each other.

The figures

do add up.

1:40:211:40:29

do add up. The crime survey there

are many victims are reluctant to

1:40:291:40:40

report to police and my

understanding is that many of those

1:40:401:40:44

who seek the support of charities

won't necessarily always come to

1:40:441:40:48

police and the work those charities.

Let's talk about some of the reasons

1:40:481:40:54

why people that you have spoken to

seem to be reluctant to report these

1:40:541:40:58

kind of crimes.

Let's think first of

all about how domestic abuse can be

1:40:581:41:04

hidden behind closed doors.

1:41:041:41:15

This incredible life-saving work

that our network is providing, as

1:41:181:41:22

Louise said, it helps to give that

confidence and strength so women can

1:41:221:41:27

go to the police and go through the

criminal justice system which can be

1:41:271:41:31

quite traumatic if that is the right

thing.

Why has it gone down then? Is

1:41:311:41:38

it the reasons people are saying we

are not reporting it?

It's really

1:41:381:41:44

important we are not comparing

apples and pears. Sometimes the will

1:41:441:41:48

be talking about incidents of

domestic abuse and we'll be talking

1:41:481:41:52

about victims coming forward. What I

think the police and Louisa Rolf and

1:41:521:41:59

others would agree on is that the

police are making significant

1:41:591:42:02

progress but this is a jigsaw

puzzle. Doing the right thing for

1:42:021:42:07

survivors of domestic abuse, they

need those local specialist

1:42:071:42:11

services. We need all of that to be

protected and that's why we are

1:42:111:42:16

calling on the to think again about

some very risky changes to the

1:42:161:42:20

funding of that network of services

and that they are better every

1:42:201:42:24

survivor of domestic abuse who needs

them.

Domestic abuse affects men and

1:42:241:42:30

women. The way we deal with it, if

such a difficult thing to even

1:42:301:42:36

report this kind of crime and four

police officers like you, try to

1:42:361:42:41

deal with it. Arrest may not be the

answer.

Domestic abuse is a complex

1:42:411:42:49

crime. Victims talk about what is

right for them and their family. We

1:42:491:42:57

should be bringing offenders to

justice and keeping victims safe. We

1:42:571:43:02

know that simplistic solutions alone

don't work the victims and they will

1:43:021:43:06

often need the right support, from

charities, and they will be

1:43:061:43:10

concerned about their children and

families, finances, housing,

1:43:101:43:12

whatever support they can have said

this need a joined up approach and

1:43:121:43:18

in the police, we wouldn't imagine

we can deal with this alone. We work

1:43:181:43:22

hard to deliver -- to develop

partnerships with charities and give

1:43:221:43:26

them confidence.

What Louise is

saying about overly simplistic

1:43:261:43:31

answers, that he could change one

thing, what would it be?

We need to

1:43:311:43:37

see a guaranteed future for the

local network of services that are

1:43:371:43:40

that helping hand. They have been

providing everything from

1:43:401:43:45

counselling to children's workers.

We need a secure future survey can

1:43:451:43:50

help the police do their job as

well. Some people might say, in

1:43:501:43:55

different places,, they might get a

different response.

1:43:551:44:05

different response.

We work with

every police force across England

1:44:051:44:08

and Wales and are working hard to

ensure that we do our best to

1:44:081:44:15

support them.

1:44:151:44:22

support them.

In terms of reasons

why, is to do a deeper family

1:44:221:44:25

issues?

1:44:251:44:30

It's all kinds of reasons, fear of

having your children taken away if

1:44:301:44:34

you come forward.

Which is

understandable, isn't it? It is, and

1:44:341:44:39

sadly that is well founded, the

women can be the target and the one

1:44:391:44:43

blamed for the behaviour rather than

the man doing the abuse and control.

1:44:431:44:48

A well founded fear from the

perpetrator.

1:44:481:44:50

The reason we have this incredible

network of life-saving refuges is

1:44:501:44:54

because women are fleeing for their

lives, they have nothing but the

1:44:541:44:59

clothes on their back because of the

danger they are in so it's complex

1:44:591:45:03

and it's important that help is

there for every survivor.

We have

1:45:031:45:08

got a government response. As part

of our ongoing work with victims'

1:45:081:45:12

groups we will be launching a

consultation on our draft domestic

1:45:121:45:16

abuse bill to transform how we

respond to domestic abuse to provide

1:45:161:45:20

better protection and support for

victims and bring more perpetrators

1:45:201:45:24

to justice.

Thank you very much for

your time, good to talk to you about

1:45:241:45:28

this issue.

1:45:281:45:29

You were saying earlier Carol was

going to do the sport.

I don't think

1:45:291:45:33

she is. That face!

Good morning. A

bit early!

1:45:331:45:39

Good morning. Thank the Lord I'm not

doing the sport, that would be a

1:45:391:45:44

disaster! Mixed fortunes this

morning, Weather Watchers pictures

1:45:441:45:48

show that nicely, mist and fog first

thing, beautiful picture from

1:45:481:45:53

Herefordshire this morning and

another cracker, look at that

1:45:531:45:56

Sunrise from North Tyneside! Today's

forecast essentially is sunshine and

1:45:561:46:04

showers, some showers wintry,

especially in the north, and

1:46:041:46:07

especially over high ground but

saying that, Shetland not out of the

1:46:071:46:10

woods just yet in terms of seeing

that snow at lower levels. In the

1:46:101:46:15

north of Scotland, rather windy.

Showers stretching from Argyll and

1:46:151:46:20

Bute to Dumfries and Galloway,

wintry on the hills, they will fade,

1:46:201:46:24

and showers in Northern Ireland,

tapping up later in the afternoon in

1:46:241:46:28

the west. Showery outbreaks we have

currently crossing the south-eastern

1:46:281:46:33

quarter of the UK moving away,

leaving a fair bit of cloud in its

1:46:331:46:37

wake. In East Anglia. We have a

peppering of showers in parts of

1:46:371:46:41

Wales and south-west England. Away

from all of these areas, look at the

1:46:411:46:46

forecast, it is dry and there will

be quite a bit of sunshine today.

1:46:461:46:50

Quite a difference in Scotland

compared to the weather some parts

1:46:501:46:54

had yesterday when we had a lot of

snow and it was blowing with

1:46:541:47:01

blizzards. Overnight there will be

dry weather around and showers. Then

1:47:011:47:05

we have this system from the

south-west introducing rain, it is

1:47:051:47:09

pushing over to the east. In the

south of the country, where we have

1:47:091:47:14

that, it will be rain but as it

moves across central and northern

1:47:141:47:17

parts of Wales, parts of the

Midlands and possibly Lincolnshire,

1:47:171:47:21

we see some snow falling from that

and even at lower levels with the

1:47:211:47:26

potential at this stage to be

disruptive. Possibly Lincolnshire

1:47:261:47:29

because it depends on the timing, if

it moves faster it will be

1:47:291:47:35

Lincolnshire, if it moves slower, it

be at this stage. Through tomorrow

1:47:351:47:39

morning, that will continue to drift

towards the Wash, clearing

1:47:391:47:44

eventually into the North Sea.

Tomorrow there will be wintry

1:47:441:47:47

showers dotted around parts of

Scotland. Nothing too heavy,

1:47:471:47:51

fizzling out through the day after

an icy start and then again we see a

1:47:511:47:55

lot of dry weather. Low pressure

close to the north of Scotland and

1:47:551:48:00

everything rotates anticlockwise

around it, including the showers.

1:48:001:48:03

You can see them coming across

western Scotland and also the Outer

1:48:031:48:07

Hebrides. Six or seven in the north,

nine or ten as we go further south.

1:48:071:48:12

Moving into Friday, we have snow

showers in Scotland to start the

1:48:121:48:16

day. They will said, a lot of dry

weather and a fair bit of sunshine,

1:48:161:48:21

then low pressure comes in and

spoils it. It brings in wet and

1:48:211:48:26

windy weather and heavy rain from

the south-west, pushing slowly

1:48:261:48:30

north-east, a comfort, accompanied

by windy conditions but milder air

1:48:301:48:35

following on. That's all heading

north as we go through the weekend.

1:48:351:48:42

Downland loop, that is your sport!

We won't make you do the sport, we

1:48:421:48:49

promised -- Dan and Lou.

1:48:491:48:50

Steph's here.

1:48:501:48:53

And the government is planning

to tighten up security on so-called

1:48:531:48:55

And the government is planning

to tighten up security on so-called

1:48:551:48:56

smart devices.

1:48:561:48:56

All the things you have connected to

the Internet so let me tell you a

1:48:561:49:01

bit about it.

1:49:011:49:01

Over the last few years,

more and more everyday devices have

1:49:011:49:04

become connected to the internet

or other devices in our house

1:49:041:49:07

in some way.

1:49:071:49:08

Things like fridges,

security cameras, watches,

1:49:081:49:10

baby monitors, music speakers

and even kids' toys.

1:49:101:49:12

According to the government,

every household in the UK owns

1:49:121:49:15

at least ten internet

connected devices.

1:49:151:49:16

And that number is rising quickly.

1:49:161:49:18

It's expected to hit 15

in the next two years.

1:49:181:49:21

But are they safe?

1:49:211:49:22

The government says hackers

are increasingly trying to get

1:49:221:49:24

into these devices

and it wants to bring

1:49:241:49:26

in new measures to

boost their security.

1:49:261:49:34

Emily Orton is from

1:49:341:49:34

the cybersecurity company

Darktrace.

1:49:341:49:40

Good morning, Emily. What are the

hackers wanting from our devices?

We

1:49:401:49:46

are now seeing hackers take a

variety of different pieces of

1:49:461:49:50

information, mostly it is in the

company corporate space at the

1:49:501:49:55

moment. For example, we have seen a

fish tank used as a way to take out

1:49:551:50:01

sensitive corporate day from an

organisation.

What can you get from

1:50:011:50:05

a fish tank?

The attackers will use

that device as an entry point to get

1:50:051:50:09

to other devices that may have

information that is interesting to

1:50:091:50:13

them, perhaps valuable to them. So

you might think, why would anyone

1:50:131:50:19

want to hack my fitness tracking

device or my baby monitor? They

1:50:191:50:24

might be used as gateways to more

interesting things. If you think

1:50:241:50:28

about all the devices you bring into

work now, if you're looking at a

1:50:281:50:32

fitness device that's coming into

the office with you, it is

1:50:321:50:36

connecting to corporate Wi-Fi,

you've got to think about where

1:50:361:50:40

those things are travelling and what

steppingstones they might act as to

1:50:401:50:44

get other information.

What can be

done to try and prevent it?

At the

1:50:441:50:50

moment we have a situation where

it's almost like going out of your

1:50:501:50:53

house and not locking the door. We

have all these devices but they

1:50:531:50:57

don't have great security. The

measures announced today should help

1:50:571:51:03

that, and that's about bringing some

basic protocols in and consumers

1:51:031:51:07

will get a better understanding of

basic good hygiene in terms of a

1:51:071:51:13

standard that should be expected.

A

bit like hygiene in terms of washing

1:51:131:51:18

your hands before you leave the

house, it's not a perfect solution

1:51:181:51:22

either.

We're looking at on the one

hand locking the door after we leave

1:51:221:51:28

the house and making sure we do the

basics, but also looking at new

1:51:281:51:33

technologies to find the more

sophisticated attackers.

What would

1:51:331:51:37

your examples be of those basic

hygiene things you could do?

If

1:51:371:51:40

you're a consumer and you're worried

about this, think about your

1:51:401:51:44

passwords, think about the passwords

you use for e-mail accounts, those

1:51:441:51:50

are the most important accounts you

can have because it's a gateway to a

1:51:501:51:53

lot of your services. If you're

sitting at home and you have the

1:51:531:51:57

same password for your e-mail as

your home delivery service or

1:51:571:52:02

another app, that's the first thing

to change. Secondly, keep up to date

1:52:021:52:08

with updates from the software

services you use. We love

1:52:081:52:12

technology, we love the updates,

we're constantly wanting these new

1:52:121:52:15

features and products but we need to

make sure we are looking at the

1:52:151:52:21

standards from the manufacturers and

updating the software.

Fascinating,

1:52:211:52:23

who knew a fish tank would be so

dangerous! Emily, thanks for your

1:52:231:52:27

time.

That was fascinating and

slightly scary. Thanks very much

1:52:271:52:33

indeed.

Going for Enemy of the State

with Gene Hackman where he doesn't

1:52:331:52:37

even look up.

Is that what you're

going to do?

I think I might do.

1:52:371:52:43

Now, have a listen to this.

1:52:431:52:50

That is of course Ed Sheeran, who is

one of a number of high profile

1:52:501:52:55

artists campaigning against

secondary ticket sites.

1:52:551:52:58

The advertising watchdog has

announced a crackdown on companies

1:52:581:53:02

selling tickets at inflated prices,

saying they need to be more

1:53:021:53:05

transparent when it comes to hidden

charges. We've had a huge response

1:53:051:53:09

from you this morning.

1:53:091:53:11

Adam Webb is from the FanFair

Alliance, which has support

1:53:111:53:13

from the likes of Ed Sheeran.

1:53:131:53:15

We're also joined by

the singer Rowetta Satchell.

1:53:151:53:17

Thanks for coming on both of you.

Adam, can we come to you first, I

1:53:171:53:22

know many people this morning are

watching this and voicing their

1:53:221:53:26

concerns of their own experiences,

but some may not know how the

1:53:261:53:30

secondary selling sites work, can

you explain?

That's one of the

1:53:301:53:36

challenges in this whole market,

it's become incredibly confusing

1:53:361:53:39

because of the activities of these

websites for people to find out who

1:53:391:53:44

the authorised sellers are. What

these platforms do, via Gomes is

1:53:441:53:49

probably the most prominent one,

they allow people to buy and sell

1:53:491:53:54

tickets. -- vivagogo. Huge volumes

of tickets get these sites before

1:53:541:54:01

events go on sale, just after and

they are marketed heavily on Google

1:54:011:54:07

in particular so people get diverted

to the sites and end up paying

1:54:071:54:11

considerably over the price the

artist intended.

So many people have

1:54:111:54:15

got in touch who have done that.

We've tried to talk to Viagogo and

1:54:151:54:19

repeatedly asked them for a

statement but they have declined to

1:54:191:54:23

respond. Rowetta, you are from the

Happy Mondays, you are a fan and an

1:54:231:54:30

artist, how is this affecting

things?

Many times tickets go on

1:54:301:54:34

sale at nine a on a Friday, if you

work normal hours, you've got no

1:54:341:54:39

chance... You can't sit in a queue

for an hour and get the tickets and

1:54:391:54:44

later in the day they are sold out

when you go home and these are

1:54:441:54:47

secondary websites have loads on

sale at extortionate prices quite

1:54:471:54:51

often and then there are delivery

and booking fees. Just as you press

1:54:511:54:57

play it appears an extra amount and

everyone feels ripped off. -- pay.

1:54:571:55:02

It's unfair loyal fans can't come to

the concerts because of this. Some

1:55:021:55:06

people are doing stuff about it, the

Charlatans, our friends, they are

1:55:061:55:12

doing something, they have a system

with a phone code. In Glastonbury if

1:55:121:55:18

you could climb over a fence you

could get in, now they have photo ID

1:55:181:55:22

and they are making it more

difficult. It should be a criminal

1:55:221:55:26

offence. They are ripping people off

and being greedy, it is awful.

Ed

1:55:261:55:30

Sheeran once four types of ID.

That

is too many because my sun wouldn't

1:55:301:55:36

have four to get into a gig. I think

it will make people suffer who

1:55:361:55:41

haven't got as much muggy because

you're paying for a passport,

1:55:411:55:45

driving licence and all the things

you need... I know why he is doing

1:55:451:55:49

it but I don't want him to punish

the working people who are loyal

1:55:491:55:54

fans.

Ticketmaster say they work on

making things transparent. Ticket

1:55:541:55:58

resale sites say they inform fans

what they will play at every stage

1:55:581:56:04

of the process. Rowetta, you said

there are quite high handling fees.

1:56:041:56:08

Many people have said

1:56:081:56:18

Many people have said today, Getmein

and Seatwave are owned by

1:56:181:56:21

Ticketmaster, they sell out

immediately at 9am, then they are

1:56:211:56:24

instantly available on the secondary

sites, owned by the same people

1:56:241:56:29

officially selling the tickets.

Massively problematic and hugely

1:56:291:56:33

confusing and the people listing

these tickets, they are marketed as

1:56:331:56:38

fan to fan websites on the whole,

but from the evidence we see the

1:56:381:56:42

bulk of people reselling tickets are

dedicated businesses. Not of a very

1:56:421:56:48

high calibre as well.

Rowetta,

briefly, have you seen concerts that

1:56:481:56:53

are sold out but then people aren't

there?

There are empty seats at some

1:56:531:56:57

of these concerts. Quite often

people don't meet them, or they try

1:56:571:57:03

and complain about how much they

paid and they try to get their money

1:57:031:57:06

back and they lose out on hotel fees

and travel costs. I have seen seats

1:57:061:57:11

where it is meant to be sold out.

The system doesn't work and it

1:57:111:57:14

should be a criminal offence.

There's a reason they haven't

1:57:141:57:19

replied today, they don't reply to

the customers either.

Adam and

1:57:191:57:24

Rowetta, thanks very much indeed. We

did contact Viagogo but nothing yet.

1:57:241:57:30

Don't purchase from them. Pete says

time to reopen ticket offices and

1:57:301:57:35

venues and put an end to the

extortion. Tracy said if you don't

1:57:351:57:40

want to pay the fees, don't buy the

tickets. But people are desperate to

1:57:401:57:44

see some of the artists they love.

Someone here said I'd booked through

1:57:441:57:50

Viagogo for little mix, my

daughter's birthday, £300 for two

1:57:501:57:54

tickets, I didn't realise how much

they were until I paid online and

1:57:541:57:59

how much the booking fee would be. I

was mortified. Just coming up to

1:57:591:58:04

8am.

1:58:041:58:04

Time now to get the news,

travel and weather where you are.

1:58:042:01:26

I'm back with the latest

from the BBC London newsroom

2:01:262:01:28

in half an hour.

2:01:282:01:29

Now, though, it's back

to Dan and Louise.

2:01:292:01:32

Bye for now.

2:01:322:01:32

What more can you tell us?

Well, so

far the unknown as yet unidentified

2:04:082:04:09

unknown substance that the two were

exposed to is being analysed in the

2:04:092:04:15

military research facility by

scientist. We are expecting it could

2:04:152:04:20

take a few days for the results to

come in. The police investigation

2:04:202:04:25

here, this is the scene, where the

two were found, there is a police

2:04:252:04:30

cordon still in place. There are a

couple of other locations that are

2:04:302:04:39

cordened off. Last night the Cordens

were widened, but now they seem to

2:04:392:04:44

have slimmed back down. We know

counter terrorism police are leading

2:04:442:04:51

the investigation. They took over

not because it is considered an act

2:04:512:04:57

of terrorism, but they have the

resources to deal with what they

2:04:572:05:01

describe as an unusual incident. The

Government is convening the Cobra

2:05:012:05:11

meeting, it is convened in response

to a national emergency usually. So

2:05:112:05:16

you can see how seriously this is

being taken at the highest levels of

2:05:162:05:21

government.

Thank you.

2:05:212:05:23

Let's go to Moscow and speak to our

correspondent Sarah Rainsford.

correspondent Sarah Rainsford.

2:05:332:05:34

The Russian Embassy have reacted

angrily to what Boris Johnson said.

2:05:342:05:35

What has been the reaction in

Russia?

That has been led from here

2:05:352:05:44

in Moscow where a spokeswoman was

indig Nantes angry at Boris

2:05:442:05:53

Johnson's comments and saying the

investigation is in its early Kay y

2:05:532:05:59

days. That follows from comments

from the Kremlin where a spokesman

2:05:592:06:04

said there was no information in the

Kremlin about what happened. I would

2:06:042:06:08

say there is a degree of questioning

and bafflement over what motive

2:06:082:06:14

Russia might have for some

state-sanctioned attack on a man who

2:06:142:06:19

has admitted to being a traitor. He

served time for that and he was

2:06:192:06:24

pardoned by the president and

exchanged and sent back to the UK in

2:06:242:06:29

a spy swap. So questions about why

it would be necessary to target him

2:06:292:06:34

many years after he went to the UK.

Thank you. We shall get more detail

2:06:342:06:42

on this and speak to a former MI5

officer in a few minutes time.

The Chancellor will outline his

vision of an EU-free trade deal for

2:08:372:08:43

the financial services sector after

Brexit. Mr Hammond who wants special

2:08:432:08:51

access to the single market said the

agreement will be of mutual interest

2:08:512:08:57

to both parties. The European

Commission said a free trade deal

2:08:572:09:01

including the City is not an option.

2:09:012:09:05

Action's being taken

against so-called "secondary

being described as "misleading

on their websites.

2:09:092:09:13

The Advertising Standards

Authority says the firms -

of a former Russian agent.

of 'robust' action if Russia

2:12:452:12:47

So who is Sergei Skripal and why

would he be a potential target?

2:12:472:12:52

In 2006 he was jailed in Moscow,

convicted of passing

2:12:522:12:55

the identities of undercover

agents to MI6.

2:12:552:12:59

Four years later, he was released

and flown to the UK

2:12:592:13:04

as part of a swap for 10 Russian

spies, including the model

2:13:042:13:06

Anna Chapman, who'd been

arrested by the FBI.

2:13:062:13:14

He'd lived here under his own name.

he believed the Russian special

services might come after him at any

time, and that in the past two

2:13:372:13:37

So many unanswered

for us this morning.

2:13:372:13:37

So many unanswered questions.

for us this morning.

2:13:372:13:38

So many unanswered questions. There

for us this morning.

2:13:382:13:38

So many unanswered questions. There

is a lot we don't know. Can you tell

2:13:382:13:43

us about the background of Sergei

Skripal and his relationship with

2:13:432:13:47

British Security Services?

From what

I have heard and read he was turned

2:13:472:13:51

in the mid nineties.

2:13:512:13:59

be to do with that eight-year period

where he was living in the UK?

It

2:15:012:15:04

might well do, yes. I can see no

reason why the Russian state would

2:15:042:15:08

go after him. He has been pardoned.

In terms of spy swap historically,

2:15:082:15:14

before anybody is handed over the

country makes sure there is no

2:15:142:15:18

further information that can harm

them before they hand them over to

2:15:182:15:22

their enemy. In terms of when they

arrived -- he arrived in the UK, he

2:15:222:15:26

would have been debriefed by his

handlers in MI6. I fail to see why

2:15:262:15:32

there would be any reason for the

Russian state to do anything to him

2:15:322:15:35

at this stage. It would be

unprecedented to do that to somebody

2:15:352:15:38

who had been involved in a swap.

That's why it is worth waiting until

2:15:382:15:42

we get more information about what

he might have been involved in over

2:15:422:15:45

the last few years. We should be

circumspect to how we react to these

2:15:452:15:51

allegations that Russia did it.

Because there is no evidence at this

2:15:512:15:56

point. It's a very tense environment

diplomatically with Russia. We need

2:15:562:16:06

to be circumspect in how we approach

this case.

As a former spy, would he

2:16:062:16:12

have been permanently looking over

his shoulder. A level of paranoia.

2:16:122:16:16

Members of his family died in recent

years. He seems to think that is

2:16:162:16:20

Russian involvement, as well. Is

that something that happens when you

2:16:202:16:23

work in that industry? When you have

worked in intelligence and you

2:16:232:16:28

betray your country, giving over

names, being involved in the spy

2:16:282:16:33

swap, there will always be paranoia.

He might have been more frightened

2:16:332:16:36

about the circles he was moving in.

It is a question still open for

2:16:362:16:41

debate. Talking about the diplomatic

situation. The police are trying to

2:16:412:16:51

find out the substance, Howard was

used, White was used. That is

2:16:512:16:55

crucial now. Not just of the

investigation but the UK's

2:16:552:16:57

relationship with Russia. -- how it

was used.

There is little to go on.

2:16:572:17:07

My first response when I heard about

the story, was the... T unit moved

2:17:072:17:18

in quickly and his name was flagged

up as someone because of interest,

2:17:182:17:23

because of his history. I wonder if

they moved in quickly, because he

2:17:232:17:29

was under protection from MI6 and

there was intelligence showing there

2:17:292:17:34

was something looming. From whom,

why, this is speculation. We need to

2:17:342:17:40

be wary of this stampeding to blame

Russia as a state for what may or

2:17:402:17:46

may not have been an attack.

I

assume you can see he is Russian and

2:17:462:17:51

his daughter is Russian, there is a

situation of his history with the

2:17:512:17:55

Russian state and then the example

of Alexander Litvinenko a few years

2:17:552:17:59

ago, but to your mind the issue is

follow the evidence and we don't

2:17:592:18:03

know that all these fingers are

pointing to Russia.

Absolutely.

2:18:032:18:12

Alexander Litvinenko was a different

kettle of fish, he was a dissident

2:18:122:18:17

and somebody who fled to the UK and

he was a consultant for MI6 at the

2:18:172:18:21

time of his death. He would have

been in their sights potentially of

2:18:212:18:27

Russian state. Now we are talking of

a man who has been caught, convicted

2:18:272:18:36

and pardoned. There is no reason I

can see that the Russian state would

2:18:362:18:40

have been targeting him. I think

that is why we need to think about

2:18:402:18:44

what else he may have been involved

in.

Thank you. We will keep

2:18:442:18:55

following this story over the days

and weeks to come. Now the weather.

2:18:552:19:00

Carol has been telling us there will

be some sunshine.

2:19:002:19:05

Carol has been telling us there will

be some sunshine. Quite a lot of

2:19:052:19:10

sunshine. We will have some showers,

but as some of the showers clear we

2:19:102:19:15

will see sunshine.

2:19:152:19:18

We have a wintry mix in the north

and still windy across the far north

2:19:212:19:26

of Scotland. These elements will

ease through the day and showers in

2:19:262:19:33

the South West are easing for

Northern Ireland some showers this

2:19:332:19:37

morning. Pepping up in the

afternoon. Showers in Wales and

2:19:372:19:40

southern England and they're hit and

miss and this morning showers

2:19:402:19:44

continuing to edge away into the

North Sea and behind that particular

2:19:442:19:48

band for East Anglia there will be a

fair bit of cloud. But for the rest

2:19:482:19:52

of us, you can see from the green on

the chart a lot of sunshine and dry

2:19:522:19:57

weather and compared to what you had

in Scotland yesterday, what a

2:19:572:20:00

difference. Further south

temperatures are still around nine

2:20:002:20:05

to 11. Seven will be the top

temperature in Scotland. Tonight we

2:20:052:20:12

will see dry weather, still some

showers and still some wintry. But

2:20:122:20:19

this system is going to be drifting

eastwards. To the south we will see

2:20:192:20:24

rain. In the north through Wales and

central and north Wales and southern

2:20:242:20:30

parts of north of England, we're

likely to see some snow and we could

2:20:302:20:34

see it getting into Lincolnshire

before the end of the night. I say

2:20:342:20:39

could, because it depends on the

timing of this. This is current

2:20:392:20:42

thinking. We reckon it will settle

above 150 metres, but it could come

2:20:422:20:52

lower. I want to make you aware of

it, in case you're making travel

2:20:522:20:57

plans. This band of rain will move

into Lincolnshire, taking the rain

2:20:572:21:05

with it. Low pressure anchored to

the south of Scotland as everything

2:21:052:21:14

rotates in an anticlockwise

direction. Showers coming into

2:21:142:21:17

Scotland and the Outer Hebrides. As

we move into Friday, a lot of dry

2:21:172:21:23

weather around, we will start off

again with snow in the Highlands,

2:21:232:21:27

that will fizzle through the day and

quite a bit of sunshine. And low

2:21:272:21:31

pressure arrives, coming across the

South West, introducing some heavy

2:21:312:21:36

rain. With it will come

strengthening winds and milder air.

2:21:362:21:41

So in the south we are looking at

nine to 11, in the north sevens and

2:21:412:21:46

eights. Through the weekend, this

band of cloud and rain and windy

2:21:462:21:51

conditions will continue to move

north, taking the milder air with

2:21:512:21:54

it. You can see the progress it is

making. The mild air doesn't get

2:21:542:21:59

into the far north of the country.

But eventually it will and

2:21:592:22:02

eventually we will see some of that

rain pushing north and some of us

2:22:022:22:07

could see a bit of snow as well.

Perhaps not as much as this and

2:22:072:22:11

there will be some sunshine in

between.

2:22:112:22:14

The snow will continue to thaw as

the mild air comes in. Yesterday

2:22:262:22:32

there was a lot of snow across parts

of Scotland. We had listed in parts.

2:22:322:22:39

Today is much better than yesterday.

Thanks very much.

Almost a year ago,

the life of police officer

2:22:432:22:45

Kris Aves changed forever,

when he was injured in the terror

attack on Westminster bridge.

when he was injured in the terror

He was left paralysed,

The morning after the

Westminster Bridge attack.

2:23:112:23:14

Five people died and 40

people were injured,

2:23:142:23:19

some of them suffering what has been

described as catastrophic injuries.

2:23:192:23:22

One of those with catastrophic

injuries was Metropolitan Police

2:23:222:23:24

constable Kris Aves.

2:23:242:23:26

Critically injured as he walked

across the bridge.

2:23:262:23:32

For much of the past year he's been

in Stoke Mandeville hospital.

He dislocated this vertebrae,

2:23:342:23:36

and is now in a wheelchair.

But what he wanted more

than anything was to get

2:23:402:23:43

home to this partner

and two young children.

2:23:432:23:51

It makes me sad

when I think forward.

2:23:512:23:53

To go swimming, I don't know how I'm

going to be in a pool

2:23:532:23:56

in a fun session with them.

2:23:562:24:03

I won't be able to stand up and kick

it's been taken away

2:24:072:24:09

from you and it's not fair.

it's been taken away

2:24:092:24:10

The kids ask a lot of questions

about stuff, "Why did daddy get hit?

2:24:102:24:17

Was he not looking when

he crossed the road?"

2:24:172:24:20

Things like that, it's

quite hard to answer.

2:24:202:24:21

At the end of last year the DIY

SOS team stepped in.

2:24:212:24:24

This is DIY SOS!

They asked volunteers to help.

home and transformed it.

2:24:302:24:38

The programme had never had such

an enormous response.

2:24:412:24:43

Sometimes we look at the police

and the people that go out

2:24:432:24:46

in the emergency services and do

what they do for us

2:24:462:24:49

but when you get behind every

person there is a family,

2:24:492:24:52

they're not just uniforms,

their families are affected too

2:24:522:24:54

and what happened to Kris had

a massive effect on the family.

2:24:542:24:57

We had exclusive access to the build

and the team's work.

2:24:572:24:59

Doorways were widened, allowing

access for Kris's wheelchair.

2:24:592:25:03

In the kitchen surfaces were lowered

and space made to cook.

2:25:032:25:05

A lift was built, the first

2:25:052:25:09

can move between floors.

properly together again.

2:25:232:25:30

The whole build took

nine days to complete,

2:25:302:25:32

and depended totally

on the generosity of others.

2:25:322:25:36

It's every day there is just ten,

ten, 20 people, do you need a hand,

2:25:362:25:40

do you need a toilet,

do you need a decorator?

2:25:402:25:42

And every day we get cake delivered.

do you need a decorator?

2:25:422:25:44

Cake is crucial.

2:25:442:25:45

That's how it works, cake and tea.

what Kris Aves made of his new home

2:26:582:30:18

Time now to get the news,

Hopefully the sun will be back soon.

2:30:182:30:19

Back in half an hour, plenty more on

the website.

2:30:192:30:26

It is 8:30am. Thank you for being

with us. The Home Secretary will

2:30:342:30:38

share emergency meeting of the

Government's Cobra meeting this

2:30:382:30:41

morning to discuss the suspected

poisoning of a former Russian agent

2:30:412:30:43

and his daughter. Sergei Skripal and

his daughter. Counterterrorism

2:30:432:30:56

police have taken over the

investigation and Russia has denied

2:30:562:30:59

any involvement. Saudi Arabia's

crown Prince Mohammed bin Nayef and

2:30:592:31:06

man is beginning a three-day visit

to Britain and will have lunch with

2:31:062:31:09

the Queen and hold talks with the

Prime Minister. The government

2:31:092:31:12

regards Saudi Arabia as an important

strategic ally but protest marches

2:31:122:31:15

are planned by campaign groups

angered by the war in Yemen where

2:31:152:31:19

the kingdom is fighting rebels. Only

on the programme we spoke to

2:31:192:31:22

journalist and columnist who said

the protests didn't surprise her.

2:31:222:31:29

There is always concern at the lack

of human rights in many areas of the

2:31:292:31:33

world. Human rights are not

improving around the world. One is

2:31:332:31:39

always hoping that things will

change. This is one of the main

2:31:392:31:44

concerns of the war in Yemen and I

think some of the protesters next to

2:31:442:31:48

Downing Street and the Parliament

will protest that.

Action is being

2:31:482:31:55

taken against so-called secondary

ticketing companies over what has

2:31:552:31:59

been described as misleading pricing

information on their website. The

2:31:592:32:05

sites that resell tickets for

sold-out shows but the advertising

2:32:052:32:08

standards agency say they have

hidden charges and sometimes don't

2:32:082:32:11

even guarantee entry into the gigs.

It follows an investigation by

2:32:112:32:17

trading standards and the

Competition and Markets Authority.

2:32:172:32:20

Steph is with us this morning.

Really interesting topic of

2:32:202:32:23

discussion about smart devices which

increasingly we have in our homes,

2:32:232:32:28

tightening security on those.

The government is warning us about

2:32:282:32:32

the safety of the devices we have to

connect to the Internet. If you

2:32:322:32:38

think about anything from watches

you might have, baby devices, music

2:32:382:32:46

speakers, Cimini devices, the

government reckons every household

2:32:462:32:48

has ten items which are connected to

the Internet. You might be thinking

2:32:482:32:54

what on earth is a hacker or a

criminal going to do with

2:32:542:32:57

information from my watch or my

fridge, or my speaker or whatever.

2:32:572:33:01

But what it is is into other things.

So for example if you have a watch

2:33:012:33:06

which even going to work connects to

the work's Wi-Fi that might be away

2:33:062:33:11

for a criminal to get into your

company's Internet system. Or even

2:33:112:33:15

just to collect other information in

the house about you which you can

2:33:152:33:20

use perhaps for identity fraud and

things like that. The government

2:33:202:33:23

says something needs to be done to

make them safer because we are quite

2:33:232:33:27

relaxed about them. We are told a

lot to change your passwords and

2:33:272:33:31

that's one of the things that you

have to do, be hygienic about it.

2:33:312:33:35

You wouldn't leave your front door

wide open and devices for people to

2:33:352:33:41

hack them so the government says we

need to do more about what can be

2:33:412:33:44

done to make sure manufacturers and

anyone involved in selling these

2:33:442:33:48

profits dumber products makes them

safer. Quite interesting. We will

2:33:482:33:54

have 15 devices in the house in the

next few years so it is rising

2:33:542:33:58

rapidly.

I'm just not going to wear a watch

2:33:582:34:02

for starters.

Do you want a fridge that tells you

2:34:022:34:05

you have run out of milk?

I don't need that.

2:34:052:34:07

That's the end of that.

I can tell.

2:34:072:34:13

Old school.

Last week an image of two-year-old

2:34:132:34:16

Parker Curry staring in or at

Michelle Obama's official portrait

2:34:162:34:19

went viral and you may have seen it.

Her mum revealed that the little

2:34:192:34:23

girl didn't know who the former

first Lady really was, she thought

2:34:232:34:26

she was looking at the Queen.

Michelle Obama was so touched she

2:34:262:34:30

invited Parker over this week and

they ended up having a bit of a

2:34:302:34:33

dance off to Taylor Swift.

It is lovely, Parker is totally

2:34:332:34:37

brilliant.

2:34:372:34:42

brilliant. 6:34am...

2:34:432:34:44

brilliant. It is not, it is a 30

4am.

2:34:442:34:48

I was two hours out -- 8:34am.

I promise, it is half past eight.

2:34:482:34:53

Don't go back to bed. Still to come

on the programme. He came the voice

2:34:532:34:58

store in Brixton. Blacker Dread is

credited with influencing a

generation of young people. He will

2:35:012:35:04

be here to talk about his

roller-coaster life. She was a

2:35:042:35:09

glamorous star of the silver screen

but Hedy Lamarr was also an

2:35:092:35:11

ingenious inventor. We will talk to

the director of a new movie which

2:35:112:35:17

tells us how her work helped to

revolutionise modern communication.

2:35:172:35:22

And country superstar Kacey

Musgraves is the only person, would

2:35:312:35:35

you believe, to have high-fived a

Royal in public. She is here to talk

2:35:352:35:38

about that and her new album as

well. I'm sure she won't mind

2:35:382:35:44

answering questions about ticket

sales. The topic everyone has been

2:35:442:35:47

getting in contact about this

morning. It is hard to remember a

2:35:472:35:51

time when we have had so many

messages on a subject like that when

2:35:512:35:55

people have said I'm so annoyed at

it and for a lot of different

2:35:552:35:58

reasons, people saying about tickets

appearing on the site and

2:35:582:36:01

disappearing straightaway and

appearing on secondary sites, people

2:36:012:36:04

talking about hidden charges as well

like handling fees. And also finding

2:36:042:36:08

out if you have a ticket, where

exactly is it in the venue. At how

2:36:082:36:13

much the original price was.

I thought I'd bought a ticket from

2:36:132:36:17

the original site which in fact I

hadn't and the ticket came and I

2:36:172:36:21

paid much more. They're all sorts of

problems.

2:36:212:36:24

Many people in the same bed this

morning. Liverpool are into the

2:36:242:36:32

Audubon has all the jumping Talisa

Lanoe wonder you do what is smiling.

2:36:322:36:34

All the hard work was done because

they come to be won the first leg

2:36:342:36:37

5-0. They could have afforded to

give a couple of people of the night

2:36:372:36:42

off, it was that simple. Relatively

straightforward. No goals, though.

2:36:422:36:46

Sadio Mane came

closest to scoring,

2:36:462:36:49

but his effort hit the post,

0-0 enough to see them

2:36:492:36:52

through after that huge

scoreline from the first leg.

2:36:522:36:57

Can Spurs join them in the next one?

They are too- do with Italian can be

2:36:572:37:02

demented heading into the night's

second leg. Mauricio Pochettino has

2:37:022:37:05

been doing his homework on tonight's

opponents, looking very studious in

2:37:052:37:09

training with Tottenham hoping to

reach the quarterfinals for the

2:37:092:37:11

second time in their history.

2:37:112:37:22

From the Champions League

to the World Cup,

2:37:222:37:30

take a look at how they've been

promoting the up coming

2:37:322:37:35

tournament in Russia.

2:37:352:37:36

With 99 days to go,

FIFA President Gianni Infantino

2:37:362:37:38

and Russian president Vladimir Putin

have been doing keep

2:37:382:37:40

uppies in the Kremlin.

2:37:402:37:41

Along with other familiar faces

from the world of football.

2:37:412:37:43

Not quite as skilful

as John Farmworth who we've

2:37:432:37:46

seen this morning.

2:37:462:37:47

If Vladimir Putin in this as well?

Isn't Vladimir Putin.

He was there.

2:37:472:37:51

I was looking away.

It was not

especially skilful.

2:37:512:37:56

England's women only need a point

from their match against USA

2:37:562:37:58

tonight to win the She Believes Cup.

2:37:582:38:00

England have already beaten

France and drawn with Germany,

2:38:002:38:02

the Americans though are the highest

ranked team in the world.

2:38:022:38:08

They are the

2:38:082:38:09

toughest test yet for head

coach Phil Neville.

2:38:092:38:13

But how will England's players

unwind when it's all over?

2:38:132:38:16

The England head coach has something

up his sleeve.

We are sending them

2:38:162:38:20

to Disneyland on Thursday morning,

that is the treat they have done for

2:38:202:38:24

us, Thursday morning they are

leaving the hotel at maybe 7:30am,

2:38:242:38:29

8am, a few hours in Disneyland, a

once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for

2:38:292:38:32

the players because of their

schedules, it is very rare that they

2:38:322:38:35

get long time off so they have three

or four hours in Disneyland with

2:38:352:38:41

Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck.

Who

doesn't enjoy spending time with

2:38:412:38:47

Donald Duck? They are in Orlando so

why not a cheeky trip to Disney

2:38:472:38:52

World?

Was Vladimir Putin there?

They might run into him. I wonder

2:38:522:38:57

how England will celebrate if they

win the one-day series against New

2:38:572:39:00

Zealand? It's going down to the

final match after defeat in the

2:39:002:39:03

house this morning, Jonny Bairstow

and Joe Root makes entries to set a

2:39:032:39:06

target of 334 but it was not enough,

Henry Nicholls hitting the winning

2:39:062:39:09

runs and Ross Taylor the star of the

show, making 181, whilst carrying an

2:39:092:39:14

injury. It is a winner takes all

protest to come in the final match

2:39:142:39:20

of the one-day series. We have also

been chatting this morning about

2:39:202:39:24

Tommy Charlton who could be

featuring in an international match

2:39:242:39:28

in Woking football, making his

England debut at the age of 71.

I

2:39:282:39:32

love this story!

He's going to be on

the sofa with Mike on Saturday

2:39:322:39:36

morning. Fantastic to hear from him

about what it is like a rowing up

2:39:362:39:40

with famous footballing brothers but

what it will be like to make his

2:39:402:39:43

England debut at 71 potentially.

2:39:432:39:48

Every day this week

we're following Zoe Ball

2:39:482:39:52

as she cycles 300 miles

from her birthplace

2:39:522:39:54

of Blackpool to her adopted

home town of Brighton -

2:39:542:39:56

all to raise money for Sport Relief.

2:39:562:39:58

It's day three

2:39:582:39:59

of the challenge and Zoe's nearing

the halfway point.

2:39:592:40:01

She starts today at Upton

Magna in Shropshire.

2:40:012:40:04

She's gone about ten miles already

this morning. She will do 70 miles

2:40:042:40:08

overall to end the day in

Stratford-upon-Avon, Shakespeare's

2:40:082:40:10

birthplace.

2:40:102:40:13

We'll speak to Zoe again in a moment

2:40:132:40:14

but first let's find out how

she got on yesterday

2:40:142:40:17

So we're back, hitting the road,

off to Upton Magna, 70 miles today,

2:40:172:40:20

hopefully.

2:40:202:40:21

Can I do this?

2:40:212:40:22

Yes!

It will be easy.

2:40:222:40:23

Thank you.

2:40:232:40:24

Do you want to come with me?

2:40:242:40:26

Go!

2:40:262:40:27

APPLAUSE.

2:40:272:40:34

Keep going, Zoe!

2:40:372:40:38

Thank you.

2:40:382:40:40

Fantastic.

2:40:402:40:43

A little stretch out with...!

2:40:432:40:50

It's all about the tight hamstrings.

Zoe has made it to Ironbridge in

2:41:032:41:09

Telford and you have got Harry Judd

with you as well. How is it going?

2:41:092:41:15

Look we ran into!

Biked into.

I

biked into Harry Judd which could be

2:41:152:41:21

embarrassingly but you know what? I

was just saying it is now easier to

2:41:212:41:24

be on the bike than not because just

getting in and out of a chair,

2:41:242:41:30

getting my tights on and off, it is

getting hard to get my leg... Harry

2:41:302:41:35

is in tights. But yesterday was the

toughest day for me, lots of hills

2:41:352:41:41

but the support out on the road,

just incredible. The ladybirds

2:41:412:41:46

Nursery, all the kids at the side of

the road, chancing my name, amazing,

2:41:462:41:51

two fantastic pubs, everyone in the

White Lion and I think it is the

2:41:512:41:56

Holman Pub in Upton Magna, the kids

met us last night, not in the pub!

2:41:562:42:01

LAUGHTER

But the support has been incredible,

2:42:012:42:05

tractor drivers tooting, there was a

tractor driver yesterday who took

2:42:052:42:08

both hands of the wheel to wave at

us, quite scary. But it is wonderful

2:42:082:42:13

and I've just heard the money is

going up so really appreciating all

2:42:132:42:17

of that. And now we have support.

I

have a token role to play today,

2:42:172:42:24

hopefully pushes early on. I've just

got a little section but looking

2:42:242:42:27

forward to it, very excited.

How are

you on a bike?

Pretty inexperienced,

2:42:272:42:34

actually, I just learned how to use

the cleats when you lock your feet

2:42:342:42:36

in and when you stop you have to

make sure you want it otherwise you

2:42:362:42:39

fall over with the bike so fingers

crossed I won't fall but I will add

2:42:392:42:43

a bit of support for Zoe

2:42:432:42:49

a bit of support for Zoe today who

is doing an amazing thing.

I know we

2:42:512:42:53

talk to you before you started and

you did fall, any amateur cyclist

2:42:532:42:56

like you and me has fallen off. What

are you going to do, shout at him

2:42:562:42:59

money he is stopping?

Three times,"

Harry, Harry!" An excuse to shout at

2:42:592:43:06

him will be amazing and also not to

be the novice for once. But Harry

2:43:062:43:10

had something I don't, the power of

a drama. Drummers are very fit

2:43:102:43:15

people.

There's rhythm involved in

cycling as well.

Definitely gummy

2:43:152:43:19

yes. That is where you are going to

be so strong. -- definitely, yes.

2:43:192:43:25

I'm worried I'm going to be slowing

you down.

I've seen you in action,

2:43:252:43:30

Harry, I know you are a fearsome

physical specimen. You were on the

2:43:302:43:34

Breakfast sofa as well talking about

the importance of exercise from your

2:43:342:43:37

perspective on how it helps with the

mental health side of things which I

2:43:372:43:40

imagine is one of the reasons you've

joined Zoe today?

Yeah, absolutely,

2:43:402:43:46

I was delighted to hear that sport

relief were supporting to raise

2:43:462:43:49

awareness for mental health and I

have jumped at the opportunity to

2:43:492:43:53

come and join Zoe. It is important

to keep the conversation going,

2:43:532:43:57

particularly for me, representing

men who have suffered or experienced

2:43:572:44:01

mental health, to get the

conversation going and personally, I

2:44:012:44:03

found talking about it was the

initial challenge, getting over the

2:44:032:44:08

challenge, talking about the things

I was experiencing with mental

2:44:082:44:11

health and then looking at ways of

helping myself and for me, exercise

2:44:112:44:15

played a huge role in overcoming the

problems I had with mental health so

2:44:152:44:20

absolutely fully supporting Zoe and

what she is doing and what sport

2:44:202:44:24

relief are doing in raising

awareness so keep on following Zoe

2:44:242:44:26

this week, she is doing an amazing

thing and obviously, keep donating.

2:44:262:44:31

Every time I see pictures of you on

your feet and from sport relief, you

2:44:312:44:35

are either eating a massive plate of

chips or a piece of cake. You are

2:44:352:44:39

getting through some serious

calories this week!

Serious

2:44:392:44:45

calories! It really is a good excuse

and I love to eat. I love food but

2:44:452:44:50

yesterday I looked up and all the

crew were like that... I inhale the

2:44:502:44:55

vegetable curry in about three

seconds.

I haven't even done my yet

2:44:552:45:00

and I've had sausage, bacon and

eggs. It is good.

So well fed and

2:45:002:45:05

people bringing pies and cakes to us

wherever we go, I had some lovely

2:45:052:45:08

banana bread from somebody and

apparently we are burning the

2:45:082:45:11

calories. I mustn't keep on carry on

eating like this when I get home.

2:45:112:45:17

Maybe not but now you are doing 70

miles per day, you can eat what you

2:45:172:45:21

want.

Given the conversation at how

much you two talk to each other,

2:45:212:45:27

today's Miles will go so quickly.

You are going to talk your way

2:45:272:45:30

through it.

Let's Hope Solo!

Let's

hope so. Thank you for the support,

2:45:302:45:36

guys, good luck.

Very chilly as well

so they are going to get back on the

2:45:362:45:43

bike. Zoe has been keeping us

up-to-date on Twitter and she was

2:45:432:45:46

mentioning the support she has been

getting and let's show you some of

2:45:462:45:49

the reception she received from

Upton Magna. These are some of the

2:45:492:45:54

pictures. So far they have

2:45:542:45:58

Upton Magna. These are some of the

pictures. So far they have raised so

2:45:582:45:59

much, you are the wind beneath my

biting winds.

2:45:592:46:03

Sport relief starts on the 17th of

March and as we have said all week,

2:46:082:46:12

if you would like to support Zoe,

the money keeps on going up, to

2:46:122:46:16

donate £5,...

2:46:162:46:18

Texts cost your donation plus your

standard network message charge.

2:46:322:46:35

100% of your donation

will go to Sport Relief.

2:46:352:46:37

You must be 16 or over and please

ask the bill payer's permission.

2:46:372:46:40

For full terms go to

bbc.co.uk/radiotwo.

2:46:402:46:41

Way said it looked chilly but a bit

of sunshine breaking through. Let's

2:46:412:46:44

find out what the weather is doing

for the rest of us.

2:46:442:46:50

Not a bad day for Zoe, sunshine and

showers. We have been looking at

2:46:502:46:55

Weather Watchers pictures, lovely

one from Northampton, the sun

2:46:552:47:00

breaking through. Some showers

wintry, particularly across the

2:47:002:47:03

north and north-west of Scotland,

and elsewhere mostly with height

2:47:032:47:08

they are wintry. It is pretty windy,

low-pressure driving our weather,

2:47:082:47:14

this is the system that brought the

snow yesterday, now ensconced across

2:47:142:47:18

the north and north-west, this one

in the south has been bringing some

2:47:182:47:21

rain this morning and continuing to

do so, eventually moving away into

2:47:212:47:25

the North Sea as we go through the

day. For East Anglia behind it it

2:47:252:47:29

will leave a fair bit of cloud but

look at the sunshine, some showers,

2:47:292:47:34

yes, peppering the west Coast of

Scotland, Northern Ireland, parts of

2:47:342:47:38

Wales, south-west England. If

anything, later we

2:47:382:47:46

anything, later we could see heavier

showers coming in across the west of

2:47:462:47:48

Northern Ireland. In the sunshine

9-11 in the south feeling quite

2:47:482:47:50

nice, ten in Hull and a much

brighter and drier Derric across

2:47:502:47:52

eastern Scotland and yesterday,

sixes and sevens. -- bright and

2:47:522:47:56

drier day. Showers in the west

tonight and organised system comes

2:47:562:48:02

in from the south-west of the UK. On

the southern flank it will be rain,

2:48:022:48:07

but across central and northern

Wales the Midlands and potentially

2:48:072:48:11

Lincolnshire as well by the end of

the night we could season snow. We

2:48:112:48:14

think it is going to be above about

150 metres but it could come lower

2:48:142:48:19

than that, and if it does it could

also prove to be disruptive so keep

2:48:192:48:22

an eye on the weather forecast. It

is also going to be an icy night

2:48:222:48:26

where we have had damp surfaces, and

tomorrow after the icy start you can

2:48:262:48:31

see how the snow pushes through

Lincolnshire, parts of Norfolk and

2:48:312:48:34

clears away. Behind it, a lot of dry

weather and a fair bit of sunshine

2:48:342:48:39

again. Still some

2:48:392:48:45

again. Still some showers coming in

across the Outer Hebrides and

2:48:452:48:47

western Scotland. Temperatures seven

in Aberdeen, six in Edinburgh, aged

2:48:472:48:49

in Belfast and ten down in London.

Dry weather once again on Friday,

2:48:492:48:51

wintry showers to start the day

across the Highlands, and Grampians,

2:48:512:48:54

but you will find they will fizzle

out through the day and it will dry

2:48:542:48:58

up nicely through the day with

sunshine. A new area of low pressure

2:48:582:49:03

will push in across the south-west

introducing heavy rain, stronger

2:49:032:49:07

winds and milder conditions. All of

this is heading northwards. If we

2:49:072:49:11

look at how far northwards through

the weekend the mild air travel is

2:49:112:49:15

it's not that far. You will notice

temperatures up to 12 or 13 degrees,

2:49:152:49:20

for example, in the south but with

cloud and rain it won't feel special

2:49:202:49:25

and as it ages further north through

the Midlands, East Anglia and parts

2:49:252:49:28

of Wales as well. Through the

weekend the rain will continue

2:49:282:49:31

pushing northwards, in the north we

will see some snow coming out of it,

2:49:312:49:36

turning milder in the south, some

sunny spells to look forward to as

2:49:362:49:39

well.

2:49:392:49:40

Shall look forward to them, thank

you Ray Mutch, Carol. I'm taking the

2:49:412:49:46

sunny spells with me.

2:49:462:49:51

When Blacker Dread opened a humble

record shop in Brixton

2:49:512:49:54

he could hardly have imagined

the life that was to follow.

2:49:542:49:56

He became an unofficial spokesman

for the community and has

2:49:562:49:59

been described as a major influence

on a whole generation

2:49:592:50:01

of young black people.

2:50:012:50:02

Filmmaker Molly Dineen has been

following his journey,

2:50:022:50:04

which took him from a meeting

with Nelson Mandela,

2:50:042:50:06

to a stint behind bars,

and it shines a light on what it's

2:50:062:50:09

like to be black in Britain today.

2:50:092:50:11

In a moment we will meet them both,

but first let's take

2:50:112:50:14

a look at Being Blacker.

2:50:142:50:16

30 years later, he was still

producing music and I went with him

2:50:162:50:19

to deliver his latest track to radio

DJ Seanie B.

2:50:192:50:22

Yeah.

2:50:222:50:23

Blessings.

2:50:232:50:24

Hello.

2:50:242:50:25

Who is this?

2:50:252:50:26

This is Molly.

2:50:262:50:27

Hi, Molly.

2:50:272:50:28

She's filming a documentary.

2:50:282:50:29

Oh, you're filming a documentary?

2:50:292:50:31

Yeah.

2:50:312:50:32

Wah gwan.

2:50:322:50:33

Welcome to the team.

2:50:332:50:34

Blacker Dread.

2:50:342:50:35

Blacker Dread.

2:50:352:50:39

when you look at MCs like Stormzy,

Wiley, Chip, all these kind

2:50:392:50:42

of MCs in grime music,

it started out with a man like this.

2:50:422:50:45

Everything has to have a seed,

do you know what I'm saying?

2:50:452:50:50

And even though it may have flowered

and grown in a different manner,

2:50:502:50:54

you know where the seed come from,

and the seed comes from Jamaican

2:50:542:50:58

sound system culture

and one of the spear heads,

2:50:582:51:02

columns, in the UK of this culture

is this man right here.

2:51:022:51:10

That is an introduction, isn't it?

2:51:102:51:12

And we are joined

now by Blacker Dread

2:51:122:51:14

and filmmaker Molly Dineen.

2:51:142:51:15

Lovely to see you both, thank you

for joining us. This is a wonderful

2:51:152:51:19

film and I've watched it. When did

you first meet?

I met Molly in 1981

2:51:192:51:27

actually. We did a documentary

called Sound Business when Molly was

2:51:272:51:32

a student and I was told by my boss

you need to do this because it's

2:51:322:51:36

good for us.

In terms of where the

relationship is now why did you want

2:51:362:51:43

to make a documentary about this

man?

Bickers Sound Business is very

2:51:432:51:48

much about rather than sound system,

I'd always wanted to make a film

2:51:482:51:55

about his life and it's taken about

35 years and there was this natural

2:51:552:51:59

opportunity when we met and he asked

me to film his mother's funeral.

2:51:592:52:03

That is an unusual thing to do in

some ways, isn't it? And emotional

2:52:032:52:07

time for you to ask her to come back

into your life and start filming

2:52:072:52:10

something that was very upsetting

for you.

Yeah but I wanted to have

2:52:102:52:15

my mum's thing documented so my

children, grandchildren and later on

2:52:152:52:21

would know where the seed came from.

Because normally we don't do things

2:52:212:52:25

like this but I had to have my mum's

funeral for keepsake.

Molly, Louise,

2:52:252:52:32

the first thing she said to me this

morning was this film is great and

2:52:322:52:35

she really enjoyed it. Learning

about Blacker's community, what do

2:52:352:52:41

you want people to take away from

the film?

It is not a specific thing

2:52:412:52:46

you take away. What you want an

audience to experience is being with

2:52:462:52:49

somebody, being in their world and

their life so as not about

2:52:492:52:52

statistics, issues or judgment but

you understand what it feels like to

2:52:522:52:56

be in a particular predicament and

to be close to somebody, who it is a

2:52:562:53:01

privilege to have that access to.

When you first came to the UK you

2:53:012:53:05

were very young, won't you?

Yeah.

This is a big question but compare

2:53:052:53:12

things to how they were then to how

they are now, what are your

2:53:122:53:16

impressions?

When I first came I was

proper scared, I was cold, I was

2:53:162:53:21

really frightened of the cold and it

was just a new environment and not

2:53:212:53:25

used to seeing all these different

things. Where I came from was the

2:53:252:53:31

countryside so we didn't have lights

and stuff like that. So it was just

2:53:312:53:35

a different world completely.

I'm

interested now because, you've got

2:53:352:53:39

lots of children, how many?

11.

One

of your sons, you've sent him back

2:53:392:53:46

to Jamaica. Why have you decided to

do that?

Because when he was going

2:53:462:53:49

to school over here they said he had

behavioural problems, he had ADHD,

2:53:492:53:56

he had autism, and when we took him

to do the tests, the person doing

2:53:562:54:00

the tests said, what is this little

boy doing here? He shouldn't be

2:54:002:54:04

here. Because he was too far

advanced and the teachers didn't

2:54:042:54:07

have time to take care of his needs.

We talked in the introduction about

2:54:072:54:11

some of the things you have done in

your life and one of those things

2:54:112:54:14

was meeting Nelson Mandela in the

1990s. He was on the state visit.

2:54:142:54:19

Talk about what that was like and

what the conversation was.

On his

2:54:192:54:23

state visit I was told that I needed

to be at his hotel at 4am in the

2:54:232:54:28

morning, I think he arrived at two,

and I was told I needed to be there

2:54:282:54:33

at four, so I went to his hotel and

up into his sweet and sat down and

2:54:332:54:37

was speaking to him, so I had

actually met him before he came to

2:54:372:54:41

Brixton. I was a member of the ANC,

it was my world, I joined the ANC

2:54:412:54:49

because I loved the struggle and

wanted to be part of it. We wrote

2:54:492:54:53

him a letter and said, please, Mr

Mandela, can you come to Brixton,

2:54:532:54:57

this is where the struggle is and

gladly he came.

I want to ask you,

2:54:572:55:03

because we talk all the time given

that this is a news programme, about

2:55:032:55:07

young black men, particularly in

London and crime, and the massive

2:55:072:55:11

impact it is having on the

community. You yourself served time

2:55:112:55:16

in jail. What can be done for this

generation. I know these

2:55:162:55:21

conversations that you have the

time.

I am very passionate about it

2:55:212:55:25

because I think it starts from

education. You have to educate them,

2:55:252:55:29

give them a chance, so they can

aspire to be something good. Because

2:55:292:55:35

if you are constantly being told

that you are no good, you are no

2:55:352:55:39

good, you start to believe that but

if you are being told you can, you

2:55:392:55:43

can, you believe that as well so I

want the youths to know it is not

2:55:432:55:47

good to be killing one another, it

is not good to be stabbing, it is

2:55:472:55:53

not good, just be that person and

love. You've got to have love.

2:55:532:55:58

Molly, that comes out quite clearly,

the influence Blacker had on the

2:55:582:56:03

community.

If Blacker had gone away

that would have been the film that

2:56:032:56:14

was made, we made a different sort

of film because in a documentary you

2:56:142:56:17

follow what is naturally happening.

It is lovely to see you, thank you

2:56:172:56:22

very much indeed. I love the

sequence when Molly asks you nicely

2:56:222:56:25

if you will reveal your wonderful

dreadlocks and it's a fantastic

2:56:252:56:29

scene.

You have not had been cut since

2:56:292:56:33

you're 14, is that right?

Yeah, I

haven't had a haircut since I was

2:56:332:56:37

14.

You have to watch the film to

see them.

2:56:372:56:44

You can see Being Blacker

on BBC Two on Monday at 9pm

2:56:442:56:47

or later on the BBC IPlayer.

2:56:472:56:48

I made a mistake earlier. We talked

about Zoe Ball and how to raise

2:56:482:56:51

money for Sport Relief come I read

the number incorrectly.

2:56:512:56:58

Pay attention, everybody. There it

is on the screen.

2:56:582:57:06

There it is for you. We will repeat

it tomorrow. The cost is the

2:57:132:57:19

Donacien Pulis the standard network

charge. 100% of your donation will

2:57:192:57:25

go to Sport Relief. You must be 16

or over. Please ask the bill payer's

2:57:252:57:29

permission.

2:57:292:57:31

All morning we have been talking

about "secondary ticketing" -

2:57:312:57:34

this is where concert tickets

are re-sold for inflated prices.

2:57:342:57:40

There's going to be a crackdown over

hidden charges on the websites.

2:57:402:57:48

Earlier Rowetta from

the band the Happy Mondays

2:57:492:57:51

gave us her thoughts.

2:57:512:57:52

Well, many times,

and I've posted myself,

2:57:522:57:54

tickets go on sale at 9am

on

2:57:542:57:56

Friday.

2:57:562:57:57

If you've got a normal job

where you work normal hours, you've

2:57:572:58:00

got no chance of...

2:58:002:58:01

You can't sit in a queue

for an hour and get these

2:58:012:58:03

tickets and yet later on in the day,

it is sold out when you go home,

2:58:032:58:07

they are sold out

and yet the secondary

2:58:072:58:09

websites have got lots

on

2:58:092:58:10

sale at extortionate prices quite

often and then the delivery and

2:58:102:58:14

booking fees that they add on top,

just as you press pay, it appears an

2:58:142:58:17

extra amount and everybody

is feeling a bit ripped off.

2:58:172:58:20

It is not fair.

2:58:202:58:21

You've been getting

in touch with your opinions

2:58:212:58:28

and experiences on this: @ReticStu

says, "It should be made illegal

2:58:282:58:31

to sell above face value."

2:58:312:58:34

@sport billy 62 says:

"Top Sporting events

2:58:342:58:35

have the same issues,

have you tried getting tickets

2:58:352:58:37

for a England 6 nations game?"

2:58:372:58:40

@Matinjsmith1 says "£300 quid

for a pair of Gaga tickets,

2:58:402:58:42

had no idea of face value till

they turned up 46 pounds each.

2:58:422:58:47

#mug."

2:58:472:58:50

Kelvin says: "I went to buy

Tokio Myers tickets but they sold

2:58:502:58:53

out within 2 minutes so I ended up

looking on another site where

2:58:532:58:56

the tickets were advertised at £80,

I went through the process of buying

2:58:562:58:59

them but when I got to the end

the price for the 2 tickets

2:58:592:59:03

had gone up to £296."

2:59:032:59:06

That is an experienced many people

are sharing this morning. This is a

2:59:062:59:10

story we will continue to follow on

Breakfast.

2:59:102:59:14

Coral says:

2:59:142:59:15

"We booked through Viagogo

2:59:152:59:17

as they appeared to be the cheapest

at only £79 per ticket but it wasn't

2:59:172:59:21

until the next morning when reading

the email that we realised

2:59:212:59:23

that the tickets which should

have only cost us £420,

2:59:232:59:26

actually cost us £662."

2:59:262:59:29

Do get in touch, thank you for your

thoughts today. It is just

2:59:292:59:34

approaching nine o'clock. Good to

have you with us on Breakfast this

2:59:342:59:37

morning.

2:59:372:59:41

In many ways Hedy Lamarr was

the archetypal Hollywood starlet -

2:59:412:59:43

in the 1930s and 40s

she was described as the most

2:59:432:59:46

beautiful woman in the world.

2:59:462:59:47

But believe it or not

the Austrian-born actress

2:59:472:59:49

was also an inventor,

2:59:492:59:51

and she was behind a pioneering

technology which is being used

2:59:512:59:54

today, as the basis for secure WiFi,

GPS, and Bluetooth.

2:59:542:59:57

She rarely spoke publicly

about this side of her life.

2:59:572:59:59

But a new film features four

never-before-heard audio tapes

2:59:593:00:01

revealing her work as a scientist

3:00:013:00:09

You did?

3:00:273:00:29

Yeah.

3:00:293:00:32

She invented, during that

period, a tablet that

3:00:433:00:46

would fizz up and make cola.

3:00:463:00:54

That was heading la in a way we have

not seen before, really.

3:01:313:01:38

not seen before, really. -- Hedy

Lamarr.

3:01:403:01:41

The film's called Bombshell:

The Hedy Lamarr Story,

3:01:413:01:43

and its director Alexandra Dean

joins us now.

3:01:433:01:45

It is an amazing story, a famous,

stunningly beautiful actress who was

3:01:453:01:47

very intelligent but in many ways,

that was not what was known about

3:01:473:01:52

her.

That's right, she was known for

the face. And the face basically

3:01:523:01:57

changed the look of Hollywood for a

generation. Everybody suddenly was

3:01:573:02:01

parting their hair in the middle,

turning it back. That is why we

3:02:013:02:05

recognise her, we see her face, even

if we don't know her films, we kind

3:02:053:02:09

of know the look and it is because

it was so powerful as a look. I say

3:02:093:02:14

to everyone, think about Angelina

Jolie, when she was on the cover of

3:02:143:02:17

a magazine it sold a million more

copies.

Her face is one thing but

3:02:173:02:21

tell us about the invention. How did

it come about? We are still feeling

3:02:213:02:27

the effects of it now, really.

That's right. This beautiful actress

3:02:273:02:31

is the one who invented a secret

communication system during the

3:02:313:02:36

Second World War to help the allies

beat the Nazis and that

3:02:363:02:42

communication system exists in our

Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS today.

We

3:02:423:02:48

heard a clip from her because you

have these wonderful tapes of her

3:02:483:02:52

talking and I love her delivery and

everything but she says, "The idea

3:02:523:02:55

is just come to me". These are ideas

that changed our lives.

And she left

3:02:553:03:02

school at 15 so it is not like she

had an advanced Ph.D. In engineering

3:03:023:03:05

or mathematics. But some people I

think have a wonderful way of seeing

3:03:053:03:11

how the world can be simplified and

that is what she meant when she said

3:03:113:03:15

things just come to her. She also

says in the tapes that it is about

3:03:153:03:19

trying to find the simple solution,

the line between two points.

3:03:193:03:24

Proposing the new way of dealing

with the world.

Originally, it was

3:03:243:03:29

rejected by the US Navy.

Yes.

Was

that because of who she was because

3:03:293:03:34

she was a woman? What was the

reasoning? How could someone like

3:03:343:03:37

that possibly come up with an idea

like this?

Yeah, I think the Navy

3:03:373:03:42

thought it was a bit ludicrous that

a woman like that had come up with

3:03:423:03:46

this incredible communication

system. What it was was also

3:03:463:03:49

something a bit too advanced for the

US Navy at the time because Hedy

3:03:493:03:53

Lamarr had been married to one of

the top munitions manufacturers for

3:03:533:03:57

Hitler and Mussolini. So she knew

what the access powers were working

3:03:573:04:03

on and it turns out the Allies did

not have very advanced torpedoes so

3:04:033:04:07

she was several steps ahead of them

and they did not understand what

3:04:073:04:10

they had in their hands at the time.

Looking at her now and knowing what

3:04:103:04:14

you do, life could have been very

different for her. Did she regret

3:04:143:04:19

that she had not done, you know,

been a scientist and been recognised

3:04:193:04:24

like that?

She did regret it and she

talked about it a lot towards the

3:04:243:04:28

end of her life but it was extreme

be difficult for her, people could

3:04:283:04:32

not accept, even today, people often

can't accept that she did this.

3:04:323:04:37

Various something about her being so

iconic in her look that makes it

3:04:373:04:41

very difficult for people to accept

that she had a mind as compelling,

3:04:413:04:46

as excellent as the face.

If you are

looking for a hero for modern-day

3:04:463:04:51

girls growing up, thinking, what

could I be? She sounds perfect.

3:04:513:04:56

Yeah, that's right, in many ways she

is a perfect icon for young girls

3:04:563:04:59

but the story is not simple. It is

complex. Her life is sad so in some

3:04:593:05:04

ways, she is a parable. Her story is

about how, if you do end up

3:05:043:05:11

believing your power and value is

all in your looks, that is not

3:05:113:05:15

sustainable and towards the end of

her life, you are not going to end

3:05:153:05:18

up feeling very good about yourself.

She eventually came round, felt like

3:05:183:05:21

she had made her mark on the world

through this amazing invention. She

3:05:213:05:26

accepted in the end that she would

not be recognised in the way she

3:05:263:05:29

hoped he would be. But she felt like

her life was worth it anyway because

3:05:293:05:34

she tried to change the world.

It is

an amazing story. Thank you for

3:05:343:05:37

joining us.

My pleasure.

3:05:373:05:41

Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story's

in cinemas from Thursday.

3:05:413:05:45

From tomorrow, and Susan Sarandon is

here, in London, to talk about the

3:05:453:05:50

film and we will do a question and

answer session after the special

3:05:503:05:53

screening tomorrow at 630 B.

Getting

the big names involved as well!

3:05:533:05:57

Country superstar Kacey Musgraves

will be here in a minute -

3:05:573:06:01

she's the only person to high -five

a royal in public, you know.

3:06:013:06:04

But first a last, brief

look at the headlines

3:06:043:06:07

where you are this morning.

3:06:073:07:45

Now back to Dan and Louise.

3:07:453:07:48

Welcome back.

3:07:553:07:56

Kacey Musgraves has been dubbed

the country star for people

3:07:563:07:59

who don't like country music.

3:07:593:08:02

Her soft, silvery vocals,

combined with lyrics that pack

3:08:023:08:04

a punch have not only led

to her mass appeal on both

3:08:043:08:07

sides of the Atlantic,

but have won her two Grammys,

3:08:073:08:10

two critically-acclaimed albums

and a supporting slot

3:08:103:08:12

on Harry Styles' 2018 tour.

3:08:123:08:15

We'll speak to Kacey

in just a moment but first,

3:08:153:08:17

let's take a look at her in action.

3:08:173:08:20

# Look around you,

3:08:203:08:21

# Look down the bar from you

3:08:213:08:24

# At the faces that you see

3:08:243:08:30

# Are you sure that this is where

you want to be?

3:08:303:08:38

# These are your friends

3:08:413:08:45

# But are they your real friends?

3:08:453:08:48

# Do they love you as much as me?

3:08:483:08:54

# Are you sure this

is where you want to be?...#

3:08:543:09:02

Lovely to have some country music on

Breakfast. Good morning. Our you?

So

3:09:093:09:14

good, so glad to be.

You are here

because you will be performing?

Yes,

3:09:143:09:20

I am here for the C2C Festival and

I'm

3:09:203:09:25

I am here for the C2C Festival and

I'm headlining this time which is

3:09:253:09:26

crazy, so it is Glasgow, Dublin and

London and I don't think I've ever

3:09:263:09:30

played a show that big on my own so

far.

Nervous?

It will be a fun

3:09:303:09:37

challenge, I think. We are ready and

I have a lot of new music to play so

3:09:373:09:42

I am so excited.

We said in your

introduction that someone has told

3:09:423:09:46

you the country star for people who

don't like country.

I like that.

3:09:463:09:51

Country is huge and every time we

get a country star on the sofa, they

3:09:513:09:54

took about things have changed, they

have been touring here for ten or 15

3:09:543:09:57

years but the appetite for country

music in the UK and around the world

3:09:573:10:01

has really grown.

It has and it has

been really cool to see. I made it a

3:10:013:10:08

big priority for myself to start

coming here early before everyone

3:10:083:10:10

knew anything about me because it is

really fun and you guys have a great

3:10:103:10:13

appreciation for songwriters and the

craft of song and I really

3:10:133:10:16

appreciate that. Yeah, I love being

out there.

You talk about the craft

3:10:163:10:22

of song because your lyrics are

straight to the point, aren't they?

3:10:223:10:25

They can be sometimes!

You enjoy

doing that, speaking your life as

3:10:253:10:31

you see it?

I do, my songs are a

culmination of the way that I see

3:10:313:10:36

life. I find that if you just kind

of write your truth, it ends up

3:10:363:10:44

relating to other people because we

are all the same, no matter where we

3:10:443:10:47

are. So this new record, I'm so

excited about it and it has been

3:10:473:10:53

inspired by just this beautiful time

in my life. I just got married.

3:10:533:10:58

Congratulations.

Thank you! It's

pretty crazy, actually. This is now.

3:10:583:11:04

But I'm really excited for everyone

to hear it.

In terms of your writing

3:11:043:11:08

process, you say how much you

enjoyed but do you write on your own

3:11:083:11:12

or are you in solitude, do you take

the experiences from the life around

3:11:123:11:16

you? What inspires you?

I always

take inspiration for songs from just

3:11:163:11:22

living life on conversations that I

have, I'm going to write a song

3:11:223:11:26

right after we get through with

this!

Are you? You could call it the

3:11:263:11:31

big red sofa? .

All areas of life

but mostly experiences and it starts

3:11:313:11:38

with some lyrics and then I put

music to it later, usually with some

3:11:383:11:42

of my favourite friends and

co-writers. I love collaborating. It

3:11:423:11:46

is fun.

Tell us about the Harrys in

your life.

There's a couple!

We will

3:11:463:11:52

start with Prince Harry, you high

five Tim, at the time...

Yeah.

You

3:11:523:11:58

do not realise you were not supposed

to do that.

I'm from Texas so I

3:11:583:12:08

to do that.

I'm from Texas so I have

not read the manual on royal

3:12:083:12:10

etiquette.

Good for you.

I did not

go to allocation lessons or

3:12:103:12:13

anything. He came up and he seemed

friendly and I was like, "What's

3:12:133:12:18

up?" I put my hand up and he went

for it and we had a laugh but later,

3:12:183:12:22

when I came back and was with the

label people, they were like, "You

3:12:223:12:27

shouldn't have done that!" It was a

no-no.

That is another thing about

3:12:273:12:31

you, you are the only person to high

five a Royal in public.

What?

I

3:12:313:12:37

don't know, I can't believe it is

true but apparently it is so.

Surely

3:12:373:12:43

someone else out there has gone in

for that?

And the other Harry in

3:12:433:12:48

your life is Harry Styles. Added the

collaboration and tour with him come

3:12:483:12:53

about?

I met him, I guess it was a

couple of years ago at the Royal

3:12:533:12:57

variety performance that I got to do

and he was so sweet and we talked

3:12:573:13:00

about Nashville a bit. We have been

mutual fans of each other but he

3:13:003:13:04

invited me to come and be the opener

on his North American tour. I agreed

3:13:043:13:12

because it will be so much fun. It

is great he is supporting all

3:13:123:13:15

different kinds of music, different

genres on each leg of each tour. I

3:13:153:13:20

think his fans will really love the

new album and I love his so it will

3:13:203:13:23

be a good mix, I think.

Have great

fun. Lovely to see you here. Thank

3:13:233:13:27

you for joining us. What is your new

album called?

Golden hour.
