Hello, this is Breakfast

with Louise Minchin and Dan Walker.

0:00:030:00:05

The entertainer Sir Ken Dodd has

died at the age of 90.

0:00:050:00:12

# Happiness, happiness.

0:00:120:00:15

The Liverpudlian comic famous

for his epic stand-up shows

0:00:150:00:18

and his tickling stick died

in the home he was born in just days

0:00:180:00:22

after marrying his

long-term partner.

0:00:220:00:29

We shall have one or two

glasses of tickle tonic,

0:00:290:00:32

and then we should go back up north

to Merseyside and I shall see

0:00:320:00:36

the Diddy Men there, so I shall

send your regards to them.

0:00:360:00:44

We'll look back at Sir

Ken's life and work.

0:00:550:00:58

Good morning.

0:00:580:00:59

It's Monday the 12th of March.

0:00:590:01:00

Also this morning:

0:01:000:01:01

The Russian spy mystery -

Theresa May chairs a meeting

0:01:010:01:04

of her national security chiefs

as 500 people in Salisbury are told

0:01:040:01:07

to wash their clothes

as a precaution.

0:01:070:01:09

We have unprecedented access

to a secure mental health hospital

0:01:090:01:11

as we find out why admissions have

gone up by 40% in a decade.

0:01:110:01:18

Small- and medium-sized businesses

are losing out on billions of pounds

0:01:180:01:21

worth of sales because

of a skills shortage.

0:01:210:01:23

I'll have the details later.

0:01:230:01:27

In sport, the snowboarders

make their debuts at the Winter

0:01:270:01:30

Paralympics.

0:01:300:01:31

Owen Pick is among

those ready to go.

0:01:310:01:33

He led out the Great Britain team

at the opening ceremony.

0:01:330:01:36

And Matt has the weather.

0:01:360:01:40

Good morning. Good morning. Frost

free across the UK to start but if

0:01:400:01:46

you are in England, Wales or

Northern Ireland, drop your brolly.

0:01:460:01:50

Plenty of showers around today. --

0:01:500:01:53

Sir Ken Dodd, the much-loved

comedian, has died at the age of 90.

0:01:530:01:56

Described by his publicist as "one

of the last music hall greats"

0:01:560:02:00

Sir Ken was known for his marathon

stage performances and the creation

0:02:000:02:03

of the Diddy Men and

the tickling stick.

0:02:030:02:05

The performer from Liverpool had

recently been released from hospital

0:02:050:02:08

after six weeks of treatment

for a chest infection.

0:02:080:02:11

On Friday, he married his partner

of 40 years, Anne Jones.

0:02:110:02:15

Caroline Davies looks

back at his life.

0:02:150:02:21

Tickling sticks and Diddy Men.

0:02:210:02:24

Ken Dodd was a great performer

with a gift for the surreal...

0:02:240:02:32

What a brilliant day to go up

to the count and say you will never

0:02:370:02:41

sell a sausage

in that size.

0:02:410:02:42

..and the love of a

catchphrase or three.

0:02:420:02:45

How tickled by all of this goodwill.

0:02:450:02:47

What about you, Mrs?

0:02:470:02:48

Have you been tickled by goodwill?

0:02:480:02:50

Proud of his Merseyside roots,

he became a chart-topping singer,

0:02:500:02:52

a television star,

and a ventriloquist.

0:02:520:03:00

Although silly on stage,

Sir Ken Dodd was serious

0:03:010:03:03

about his craft.

0:03:030:03:11

Freud said that a laugh is a sudden

explosion of psychic energy.

0:03:110:03:14

The trouble with Freud was he never

played a second house Friday night.

0:03:140:03:17

He still lived in the home he grew

up in and guarded his private life.

0:03:170:03:22

In 1989, that was shattered

when he faced claims of tax evasion.

0:03:220:03:27

He had more than £300,000

hidden around his house.

0:03:270:03:33

He had 20 offshore bank accounts.

0:03:330:03:34

He was acquitted and

continued performing.

0:03:340:03:37

Last year, he was given a knighthood

in recognition of his charity

0:03:370:03:40

and comedy work.

0:03:400:03:46

We shall have one or two

glasses of tickle tonic,

0:03:460:03:49

and then we should go

back to Knotty Ash

0:03:490:03:55

up north, Knotty Ash on Merseyside,

and I shall see the Diddy Men there,

0:03:550:03:58

so I shall send your

regards to them.

0:03:580:04:01

Aged 90, he recently got a chest

infection but wanted to go

0:04:010:04:04

back on stage.

0:04:040:04:05

I look forward to getting

back to doing my job -

0:04:050:04:08

the only job that I have ever had,

the only job that I know.

0:04:080:04:14

Happiness, happiness.

0:04:140:04:15

After more than 60 years

of making others laugh,

0:04:150:04:18

it was performing to the British

public that Sir Ken Dodd said

0:04:180:04:21

gave him enormous happiness.

0:04:210:04:23

Happiness!

0:04:230:04:30

Some of Ken Dodd's fans and former

colleagues have been paying tribute.

0:04:300:04:34

Actor Claire Sweeney

said:

0:04:340:04:40

Actor John Challis wrote:

0:04:480:04:55

And comedian Gary Delaney made

reference to how long Ken Dodd's

0:04:550:04:57

shows went on for, saying:

0:04:570:05:00

I'm sure he would have appreciated

that joke. Do send in your tributes

0:05:120:05:16

throughout the morning as well.

0:05:160:05:17

The National Security Council

is to look at the latest evidence

0:05:170:05:20

of the suspected poisoning

of a former Russian double agent

0:05:200:05:23

and his daughter.

0:05:230:05:24

An assessment will be made

on who might have carried out

0:05:240:05:27

the nerve agent attack.

0:05:270:05:28

Sergei and Yulia Skripal remain

critically ill in hospital.

0:05:280:05:30

Our political correspondent

Ben Wright's in our Westminster

0:05:300:05:33

studio for us this morning.

0:05:330:05:36

Good morning, bend. There are

thoughts that perhaps Theresa May

0:05:360:05:41

might be saying something about this

today.

What can you tell us? Yes,

0:05:410:05:46

eight days on so far the government

has been incredibly weary about

0:05:460:05:49

saying anything explicit about who

may be behind this, even though some

0:05:490:05:54

Tory MPs and later MPs, actually,

last week, were urging them to point

0:05:540:05:58

the finger at the Russian state.

Investors have not done that so far

0:05:580:06:02

which may change today. We know the

Prime Minister will get the latest

0:06:020:06:06

intelligence assessment on her desk

when she arrives at work and then

0:06:060:06:10

the National security council will

meet which brings together senior

0:06:100:06:13

ministers who get briefings then

from top counterterrorism officials

0:06:130:06:16

across Whitehall. It may be that

after that, the Prime Minister might

0:06:160:06:22

say something publicly. There is

speculation they could be a

0:06:220:06:25

statement in the Commons perhaps

this afternoon at which she might

0:06:250:06:28

have the first time a first-time

attribute blame for this. It could

0:06:280:06:31

be quite a big day on that front but

meanwhile in Salisbury, people are

0:06:310:06:36

still having to wash their clothes

and their possessions, people who

0:06:360:06:38

may have been in either the pub or

the restaurant insulted last Sunday

0:06:380:06:43

into Monday that may have been

contaminated. So still lots of

0:06:430:06:47

moving parts with this.

Absolutely,

we will update everybody about what

0:06:470:06:53

is happening in falsely, we will

speak to a toxicologist later. Thank

0:06:530:06:57

you.

0:06:570:06:57

A bitter row has broken out

at the top of the Labour Party

0:06:570:07:01

with a shadow cabinet minister

being removed from her post,

0:07:010:07:03

apparently against her will.

0:07:030:07:05

Labour says Debbie Abrahams stepped

down as spokeswoman on Work

0:07:050:07:07

and Pensions, while an employment

issue is investigated.

0:07:070:07:09

But Mrs Abrahams claims that she's

the victim of a bullying culture

0:07:090:07:13

in the party.

0:07:130:07:14

At least two people have died

after a helicopter crashed

0:07:140:07:16

into the East River

in New York last night.

0:07:160:07:19

Three passengers are in critical

condition after being pulled out

0:07:190:07:21

of the water by rescuers.

0:07:210:07:23

The pilot managed to free himself.

0:07:230:07:24

An investigation will be held

to determine the cause of the crash.

0:07:240:07:32

The former commander of the UK's

maritime forces says Britain's

0:07:330:07:36

ability to "fight and win

on the frontline" was being affected

0:07:360:07:39

by budget cuts.

0:07:390:07:40

Rear Admiral Alex Burton said the UK

is at risk of losing its status

0:07:400:07:44

as a "credible military power".

0:07:440:07:47

He's the latest in a long line

of senior military figures to call

0:07:470:07:51

for more spending on defence.

0:07:510:07:52

The government said spending

is growing to meet ever-changing

0:07:520:07:54

threats.

0:07:540:07:57

In an interview with the BBC,

Rear Admiral Alex Burton says

0:07:570:08:00

spending on defence

is urgently needed.

0:08:000:08:05

If we do not spend more on defence

than we currently are as a

0:08:050:08:12

percentage of GDP, then we put at

risk the fact that we are currently

0:08:120:08:17

a credible military power and from

that, we put at risk our position on

0:08:170:08:22

the global stage.

0:08:220:08:23

A new survey suggests almost two

thirds of doctors in some parts

0:08:230:08:26

of the UK feel patient safety has

deteriorated over the past year.

0:08:260:08:30

The report, by the Royal College

of Physicians, found that growing

0:08:300:08:33

pressures on NHS staff have led

to concerns about patient care.

0:08:330:08:36

The government says it's absolutely

committed to making the NHS

0:08:360:08:38

the safest healthcare

system in the world.

0:08:380:08:44

A council facing financial problems

is facing allegations it used

0:08:440:08:47

millions of pounds of money

ring-fenced for public health

0:08:470:08:49

to prop up other services.

0:08:490:08:51

The BBC's Inside Out East

programme has learned that

0:08:510:08:53

Northamptonshire County Council may

have to return as much as ten

0:08:530:08:56

million pounds to

Public Health England.

0:08:560:09:04

Did you see a problem the weekend? I

did not. Well, look at this.

0:09:070:09:14

The annual Crufts dog show had to be

temporarily halted after two

0:09:140:09:17

protesters stormed the venue.

0:09:170:09:18

As this year's winner,

a 2.5-year-old whippet called Tease,

0:09:180:09:21

made her way to the podium,

this happened - two demonstrators

0:09:210:09:24

from the animal rights group PETA

emerged from the audience.

0:09:240:09:26

They were quickly chased down

and subdued by security staff.

0:09:260:09:29

No animals or owners were harmed.

0:09:290:09:31

Lots of people are talking about the

fact that Tease was whipped up into

0:09:310:09:35

the arms of her own. Clearly,

slightly alarmed, to say the least.

0:09:350:09:40

One of those very strange live TV

moments.

0:09:400:09:42

A teenage photographer's shots

of The Beatles' first concerts

0:09:420:09:45

in the United States

are expected to sell for 250,000

0:09:450:09:47

pounds at auction.

0:09:470:09:48

Mike Mitchell, who was 18

at the time, took hundreds

0:09:480:09:51

of pictures of the Fab Four's gigs

at the Washington Coliseum

0:09:510:09:54

and the Baltimore

Civic Centre in 1964.

0:09:540:09:56

He also attended their first press

conference and captured the band's

0:09:560:09:59

arrival at Union Station.

0:09:590:10:06

Which brings us very nicely back to

Ken Dodd. Did you know he's single

0:10:060:10:15

tears was the third largest selling

song in the UK of the entire 1960s

0:10:150:10:19

and was only beaten by two tracks by

the Beatles. Amazing. What is the

0:10:190:10:25

comedian but well known to his

singing. Good morning, Kate, you are

0:10:250:10:29

back. I am, there is action still

going on and I am a little bit sad

0:10:290:10:34

not to be there. It is the turn of

the Paralympic and is now and

0:10:340:10:40

snowboarders. We were hoping to

bring new pictures of Owen Pick who

0:10:400:10:46

was waving the flag for Team GB at

the opening ceremony that there has

0:10:460:10:50

been a problem with the start date.

I've been watching, yes. -- gate. We

0:10:500:10:56

will bring you date with the curling

which has started. Great Britain is

0:10:560:11:02

out on the ice at the moment,

leading Sweden in their latest

0:11:020:11:06

round-robin match. They are in and

true. -- end two.

0:11:060:11:16

Tottenham and England fans will be

waiting for the results of a scan

0:11:160:11:19

today on Harry Kane's ankle

after he was injured during Spurs'

0:11:190:11:22

4-1 win over Bournemouth.

0:11:220:11:24

Son Heung-Min scored twice to move

Tottenham up to third in the table.

0:11:240:11:27

George North scored two tries

for Wales as they beat Italy

0:11:270:11:30

in Cardiff to move up to second

place in the Six Nations

0:11:300:11:33

championship.

0:11:330:11:36

And Tiger Woods came so close

to winning his first title

0:11:360:11:39

in over four years.

0:11:390:11:40

He needed to sink this putt

but he finished one shot behind

0:11:400:11:44

winner Paul Casey at

the Valspar Championship in Florida.

0:11:440:11:52

He says though that he is feeling

every day a little bit better and a

0:11:530:11:58

little bit better. Lynch news for

Paul Casey. 40 years old and he has

0:11:580:12:03

not won anything for a long time.

The Masters is only a few weeks away

0:12:030:12:07

all looking good in the golfing

world. Looking forward to - I was

0:12:070:12:12

going to say a Atlanta, it is not

near Atlanta, the Masters. Augusta!

0:12:120:12:17

Here's Matt with a look

at this morning's weather.

0:12:170:12:20

Good

0:12:200:12:24

Good morning, it is the sum but not

for all. Not a bad start of the

0:12:240:12:29

working week. Reasonably mild and

frost free, the driest of all in

0:12:290:12:33

Scotland but elsewhere a case of

take something waterproof with you

0:12:330:12:36

as you leave today, particularly the

England and Wales. Low pressure is

0:12:360:12:41

on the scene. This tell-tale swell

of cloud is going anticlockwise, the

0:12:410:12:45

low pressure to the south which

means the further away you are,

0:12:450:12:49

Scotland, Northern Ireland, dry

weather, one or two showers in the

0:12:490:12:52

south and east of Northern Ireland,

northern Ireland, sorry, Scotland

0:12:520:12:55

should be a bright start. Looking at

England and Wales today because it

0:12:550:13:02

is here where you will get wet at

times. Persistent rain across

0:13:020:13:05

northern England continuing into the

afternoon across Northumberland,

0:13:050:13:09

County Durham into the north-west.

Elsewhere scattered showers, maybe

0:13:090:13:13

some brightness now and then but

shall go through the south-east

0:13:130:13:16

Midlands towards the south-east of

England could become heavy and

0:13:160:13:20

thundery. Some afternoon showers for

Northern Ireland and one or two in

0:13:200:13:23

the north-east of Scotland but

primarily we see the dry weather

0:13:230:13:26

here. Coolest in the North Sea coast

but any brightness further south

0:13:260:13:30

will figure temperatures yet again

above where they should be for this

0:13:300:13:33

time of year. In the evening, ran at

times across England, it will

0:13:330:13:38

continue on and off through the

night to eastern areas. One or two

0:13:380:13:41

showers elsewhere but with clear

skies around tonight it will be a

0:13:410:13:45

cold at night and last night, a

touch of frost around for north and

0:13:450:13:48

west into tomorrow morning, and of

course we have seen some late

0:13:480:13:52

showers just a small chance they

could be a little bit ice. Into

0:13:520:13:55

Tuesday, low pressure to the west

coming in for Wednesday but a bump

0:13:550:13:59

in the ice above, a ridge of high

pressure, it tends to stop many of

0:13:590:14:03

the show was forming, not all of

them. Tomorrow we are likely to see

0:14:030:14:08

wet weather in East Anglia, the

south-east, it will clear away and

0:14:080:14:11

one or two isolated showers through

the day but most will have a dry day

0:14:110:14:15

and certainly compared to the

England and Wales, a good deal

0:14:150:14:18

brighter, some sunny spells around

and temperatures here and there into

0:14:180:14:21

double figures. So, again, a mild

enough day with light winds. It

0:14:210:14:27

changes on Wednesday, a cool start

towards the east, the win

0:14:270:14:30

strengthening through the day,

turning cloudy across many areas and

0:14:300:14:33

through the day the western fringes

of England, doesn't Scotland will

0:14:330:14:36

see a recovering come and go. Most

persistent through the afternoon,

0:14:360:14:40

the reigning Northern Ireland,

Southwest Wales and Cornwall, strong

0:14:400:14:43

the gale force winds will dominate

winds from the south, temperatures

0:14:430:14:47

could get into the mid- teens are

many areas on what will be a rural

0:14:470:14:51

am old enough week. Some dry spells,

the wet weather at times too but

0:14:510:14:55

from it went onward to get

increasingly windy and then there

0:14:550:14:59

are signs down and Louise as we go

to next weekend, we could see some

0:14:590:15:03

cold weather returned. -- Dan. I

will keep you updated. Not again!

0:15:030:15:08

Seriously!

0:15:080:15:12

Step has joined us as well.

Let's

have a look

0:15:170:15:20

Step has joined us as well.

Let's

have a look at the front page of the

0:15:200:15:22

papers. Theresa May set to hit back

at Russia over spy attack. None of

0:15:220:15:30

the papers have got the story about

the death of Ken Dodd at the age of

0:15:300:15:39

90, it is on the Internet site

because it broke last night.

The

0:15:390:15:43

front page of the Telegraph.

Officials face nerve agent backlash.

0:15:430:15:50

We will be speaking to toxicologists

later to find out what is known

0:15:500:15:54

about this agent and also, look,

this is the advice yesterday. Lots

0:15:540:16:00

of viewers would have seen it. 500

people, diners, people who have been

0:16:000:16:05

to the pub where Sergei had been

having dinner. Wash their clothes

0:16:050:16:13

and phones. Put it in a plastic bag

if it needs to go to the dry

0:16:130:16:21

cleaner.

Britain's worst abuse

scandal on the front page of the

0:16:210:16:25

daily now -- Daily Mail. And why are

Kate's fingers all the same length?

0:16:250:16:32

What a question. But they are not in

that picture.

That's the end of

0:16:320:16:37

that. The front page of the

Guardian. A visitor to the Science

0:16:370:16:44

Museum's new medical Gallery will

see the 3.5 - metre statue. It's

0:16:440:16:49

really rather beautiful.

And

football pundit Jamie Carrigan finds

0:16:490:16:56

himself on the front page of the

Mirror and the sun. -- Carragher. A

0:16:560:17:04

spitting storm. There is a viral

video of Jamie Carragher spitting on

0:17:040:17:09

the motorway. He has come out and

apologised immediately.

He said,

0:17:090:17:16

totally out of order and I have

apologised personally to all the

0:17:160:17:20

family. I was goaded while being

filmed. No excuse, apologies.

He

0:17:200:17:26

finds himself on the front page.

A

lot of the business pages are

0:17:260:17:32

talking about companies that don't

pay as much tax as a lot of people

0:17:320:17:38

think they should. It's not evasion,

it's not illegal but multinationals

0:17:380:17:44

are paying significantly lower tax

rates than they did before the

0:17:440:17:48

financial crisis back in 2008. Quite

a few companies on a lot of page is

0:17:480:17:55

being discussed with the sales

they've made. The fact they are not

0:17:550:17:59

necessarily paying tax on that.

Another little story. Are you one of

0:17:590:18:04

those people who gets crumbs on your

keyboard?

It's one of the first

0:18:040:18:11

things.

I don't want to see what

comes out.

Apparently now, Apple are

0:18:110:18:19

going to create a keyboard where it

is impossible to get food in now.

We

0:18:190:18:25

all share desks here.

I bought a

second-hand keyboard and I thought,

0:18:250:18:33

I've got to prove that comes out. I

put the suction power on too much, I

0:18:330:18:40

removed about 20 of the keys.

You

know where they are -- where they

0:18:400:18:46

are, anyway.

Lots of analysis in the

papers today about the ugly scenes

0:18:460:18:51

at West Ham after that pitch

invasion. They lost to Burnley over

0:18:510:18:56

the weekend. Lots of unrest about

the board. They want Southern Golden

0:18:560:19:00

Brady out. Lots of analysis. Trevor

Brooking saying the fans really need

0:19:000:19:08

to get a grip on their behaviour

otherwise the team will end up

0:19:080:19:12

relegated because they cannot play

at home in that atmosphere. Lots of

0:19:120:19:16

talk about the fact that we need to

do more about stewarding and

0:19:160:19:21

policing at the grounds. A lot of

the responsibility should be on the

0:19:210:19:25

behaviour of the fans themselves

rather than modifying the behaviour

0:19:250:19:28

of -- for them. And pictures from

Italy, the Fiorentino Captain Davide

0:19:280:19:38

Astori, their first match back. Such

a step -- such as sad story. 31

0:19:380:19:48

years old and Italy still reeling

from that.

0:19:480:19:56

from that.

This is about garden bird

feeders. Apparently, they are

0:19:560:20:00

helping to spread serious diseases,

according to scientists. Causing

0:20:000:20:06

epidemics. Birds congregate in the

same place. We will be speaking to

0:20:060:20:12

somebody with this at about ten past

eight.

We are going to speak to

0:20:120:20:20

somebody about 8:20am with more

detail on this.

It is

0:20:200:20:30

detail on this.

It is responsible

for Finch trichomonosis.

And how was

0:20:300:20:33

Mothering Sunday everybody?

I

enjoyed it. Celebrating with all the

0:20:330:20:38

mothers out there. This is a picture

that appeared in the Telegraph.

A

0:20:380:20:47

very happy Mothering Sunday to all

our followers. This picture was the

0:20:470:20:52

Queen, for children and the Duke of

Edinburgh, taken in 1965 outside

0:20:520:20:58

Frogmore house in Windsor,

celebrating the Queen's 39th

0:20:580:21:01

birthday.

0:21:010:21:05

The number of people detained

in mental health hospitals

0:21:050:21:07

in England has risen

by 40% in a decade.

0:21:070:21:11

One of those was 20-year-old Tee

who was 18 when she was sectioned.

0:21:110:21:14

Breakfast has had unprecedented

access to the secure

0:21:140:21:17

hospital where Tee's been staying -

and in the first of two special

0:21:170:21:20

reports, Graham Satchell

joined her as she prepared

0:21:200:21:22

to have her section lifted.

0:21:220:21:29

Any worries? How are you feeling?

I'm a bit nervous because obviously

0:21:290:21:34

I've been here for quite awhile so

it becomes normal, the routine.

Tee

0:21:340:21:39

has been locked up for our own

safety for almost two years. No

0:21:390:21:43

sharp objects, not even an error.

She was detained under the Mental

0:21:430:21:47

Health Act after turning 18.

I

remember feeling every emotion under

0:21:470:21:52

the sun. I was scared. I felt upsell

-- upset that I'd let my family

0:21:520:21:57

down, I felt a bit lost. Initially

it was really horrible and a really

0:21:570:22:02

scary process and I started to

realise that that was what I needed.

0:22:020:22:06

They did in section me for no

reason. There was a reason why.

Tee

0:22:060:22:12

has been treated at St Andrews in

Northampton, one of the biggest

0:22:120:22:16

secure mental health hospitals in

the first time news cameras have

0:22:160:22:20

been allowed. The problems started

when she was 14.

I used to self sell

0:22:200:22:26

Palm is about cot more intense and

quite serious and things like

0:22:260:22:31

overdosing, which I look back on now

and am glad nothing worked. Things

0:22:310:22:36

like that, just spiralled out of

control and I felt like I couldn't

0:22:360:22:41

cope.

It's almost time to leave

hospital.

How have you done? When I

0:22:410:22:45

first got here, I was really anxious

thought I would be here forever.

Tee

0:22:450:22:50

has worked hard to get to this

point. With therapy and medication,

0:22:500:22:54

she has learnt to manage your

emotions but the number of people

0:22:540:22:57

being detained in mental health

hospitals in England has gone up 40%

0:22:570:23:01

in a decade.

They a section of the

Mental Health Act. Sadly there is an

0:23:010:23:09

inexhaustible supply of damaged

young women out there who are

0:23:090:23:12

replacing the ladies who are

leaving.

Why are numbers so high?

0:23:120:23:15

The moment of crisis the Tee came

issued from child to adult mental

0:23:150:23:21

health services. The Chris Jerrey is

different. Waiting times are longer.

0:23:210:23:25

As she turned 18, she had months of

note support and ended up taking an

0:23:250:23:30

overdose.

I felt like I was kind of

just left eye deteriorated, I felt

0:23:300:23:36

like nobody cared, I pushed the ones

I loved the most away because they

0:23:360:23:41

thought, they don't care so I don't

care. It was really difficult having

0:23:410:23:45

that period of support.

Transition

is supposed to be a gradual managed

0:23:450:23:50

period from children's mental health

services to adult mental health

0:23:500:23:54

services but the many people, it's

like falling off a cliff edge and

0:23:540:23:58

that's how many of them describe it.

It's a long, long way to go before

0:23:580:24:02

we have anything looking optimum

young people.

She wants to cry. Tee

0:24:020:24:09

is saying her last goodbyes.

Well

done, Tee. That things are coming.

0:24:090:24:14

It doesn't have to be same as

normal. And actually excited to get

0:24:140:24:19

on with it.

NHS England told us they

are spelling spending an extra £280

0:24:190:24:24

million a year in trialling new

models of care, young people moving

0:24:240:24:29

to adult services at 25 rather than

18. But they acknowledge too many

0:24:290:24:33

young people are not getting the

treatment they should expect.

You

0:24:330:24:38

did it.

It's good. Tee is one

success story. Graham Satchell, BBC

0:24:380:24:45

News.

0:24:450:24:49

And very good luck to Tee on a

journey. On tomorrow's programme, we

0:24:490:24:55

will see her as she settles into new

accommodation.

0:24:550:25:02

And we'll be asking if there's

enough support in the community

0:25:020:25:05

to stop people like her being

readmitted to hospital.

0:25:050:25:08

Still to come this morning.

0:25:080:25:13

From construction to I.T,

Steph will find out why a shortage

0:25:130:25:16

in these skills is costing British

firms billions of pounds,

0:25:160:25:19

and what can be done

to fill the gap.

0:25:190:25:21

Time now to get the news,

travel and weather where you are.

0:25:210:25:22

Time now to get the news,

travel and weather where you are.

0:25:220:28:40

I'm back with the latest

from the BBC London newsroom

0:28:400:28:43

in half an hour.

0:28:430:28:44

Plenty more on our website

at the usual address.

0:28:440:28:46

Bye for now.

0:28:460:28:49

Hello this is Breakfast

with Louise Minchin and Dan Walker.

0:28:500:28:55

It is approaching 630 Monday

morning. It is that folds of March.

0:28:550:29:00

Coming up on Breakfast today:

0:29:000:29:01

Hundreds of people are told

to wash their possessions

0:29:010:29:04

following the poisoning of a former

Russian spy and his daughter.

0:29:040:29:07

We'll find out more about the nerve

agent and why it's taken a week

0:29:070:29:11

to give this advice.

0:29:110:29:12

Also this morning:

a huge treasure hunt

0:29:120:29:14

for Shakespeare's books is taking

place right across the UK.

0:29:140:29:16

We'll join in a bit later on.

0:29:160:29:22

We'll join in a bit later on.

0:29:220:29:24

What a beautiful day!

0:29:240:29:26

Hey, hey.

0:29:260:29:29

Singer

and guitarist Mark Chadwick

0:29:290:29:30

from The Levellers will join us

to talk about everything

0:29:300:29:33

from politics to recording at Abbey

Road.

0:29:330:29:35

Good morning.

0:29:350:29:36

Here's a summary of today's main

stories from BBC News.

0:29:360:29:44

The comedian Ken Dodd has died at

the age of 90.

Happiness, happiness,

0:29:470:29:52

the greatest gift that I possess.

He

was known to his marathon stage

0:29:520:29:57

performances and the Diddy men and

the famous tickling stick. He had

0:29:570:30:04

been treated in hospital recently

for a chest infection.

0:30:040:30:07

Some of Ken Dodd's fans and former

colleagues have been paying tribute.

0:30:070:30:10

And comedian Gary Delaney made

reference to how long Ken Dodd's

0:30:100:30:13

shows went on for,

saying:

0:30:130:30:21

Actor John Challis wrote:

0:30:260:30:34

Actor Claire Sweeney

said:

0:30:340:30:42

Many tributes coming into us this

morning also say thank you for

0:30:500:30:54

sending those in. It's 630. Let's

0:30:540:30:58

bring you some other news. The

National Security agency today to

0:30:580:31:01

discuss the attack in Salisbury on

the former Russian intelligence

0:31:010:31:05

officer and his daughter. The group

made up by senior ministers and

0:31:050:31:08

ministers from the military service

security services is chaired by the

0:31:080:31:12

Prime Minister, given the latest

evidence and intelligence on the

0:31:120:31:15

attack before deciding what action

should be taken. Yesterday hundreds

0:31:150:31:19

of people in the same pub and

restaurant has the victims were

0:31:190:31:22

warned to wash their clothes and

other belongings that they had on

0:31:220:31:26

them at the time.

0:31:260:31:27

A bitter row has broken out

at the top of the Labour Party

0:31:270:31:30

with a shadow cabinet minister

being removed from her post,

0:31:300:31:33

apparently against her will.

0:31:330:31:34

Labour says Debbie Abrahams stepped

down as spokeswoman on Work

0:31:340:31:37

and Pensions while an employment

issue is investigated.

0:31:370:31:39

But Mrs Abrahams claims that she's

the victim of a bullying culture

0:31:390:31:42

in the party.

0:31:420:31:47

At least two people have died

after a helicopter crashed

0:31:470:31:50

into the East River

in New York last night.

0:31:500:31:58

Three passengers are in critical

condition after being pulled out

0:32:030:32:06

of the water by rescuers.

0:32:060:32:08

The pilot managed to free himself.

0:32:080:32:09

An investigation will be held

to determine the cause of the crash.

0:32:090:32:12

While for the divers to get these

people out, they worked very quickly

0:32:120:32:16

as fast as they could, it is 50 feet

of water there, there was a four

0:32:160:32:20

mile in our current, the temperature

is below 40 is a rubber and worked

0:32:200:32:24

very hard, it is a great tragedy

that we had occurred here on a

0:32:240:32:28

quiet, otherwise quiet Sunday

evening.

0:32:280:32:29

The former commander of the UK's

maritime forces says Britain's

0:32:290:32:32

ability to "fight and win

on the frontline" was being affected

0:32:320:32:35

by budget cuts.

0:32:350:32:36

Rear Admiral Alex Burton said the UK

is at risk of losing its status

0:32:360:32:40

as a "credible military power".

0:32:400:32:42

He's the latest in a long line

of senior military figures to call

0:32:420:32:46

for more spending on defence.

0:32:460:32:47

The government said spending

is growing to meet ever-changing

0:32:470:32:49

threats.

0:32:490:32:55

A council facing financial problems

is facing allegations it used

0:32:550:32:58

millions of pounds of money

ring-fenced for public health

0:32:580:33:00

to prop up other services.

0:33:000:33:03

The BBC's Inside Out East

programme has learned that

0:33:030:33:05

Northamptonshire County Council may

have to return as much as ten

0:33:050:33:08

million pounds to

Public Health England.

0:33:080:33:15

That money wasn't misappropriated

Tom it may have been spent in adult

0:33:150:33:21

social care looking after people in

some way or another that somebody

0:33:210:33:25

might judge that wasn't really

public health money but at the end

0:33:250:33:29

of the day, it is still being spent

on the people in Northamptonshire.

0:33:290:33:35

This is a question that will spark

debate amongst our Breakfast is more

0:33:350:33:40

for the first view with this

morning. When it comes to scone- how

0:33:400:33:44

would you pronounce it?

0:33:440:33:53

would you pronounce it? Are you jam

first or cream first? Shall we start

0:33:540:33:56

from the bottom? A crew to, cream,

J. No, no, no. Are you saying that

0:33:560:34:04

to annoy me? It has to be jam first

and then you build it. You use the

0:34:040:34:09

jam as your base and to build upon

that with cream. That is what I

0:34:090:34:14

said. No, I said from the bottom

scone, jam, cream. I do with the

0:34:140:34:21

other way around. What did I say?

Can't even remember. Ken Dodd,

0:34:210:34:26

cream, jam. No, cream first. The

reason we are discussing this is

0:34:260:34:34

that, you cannot change your ways

halfway through.

0:34:340:34:36

A National Trust property

in Cornwall has apologised

0:34:360:34:39

for advertising its cream teas

with the jam on top of the cream

0:34:390:34:43

because it's a Devon tradition.

0:34:430:34:49

I am a little bit upset because I

obviously don't do with the Cornish

0:34:490:34:53

Way. Do you want to see the advert?

It is the wrong way around. It is

0:34:530:35:01

the right way around. It is the

wrong way around. The photo caused

0:35:010:35:04

outrage!

0:35:040:35:09

And as you can clearly see,

the cream is on the scone first,

0:35:090:35:12

with the jam on top.

0:35:120:35:14

But the photo caused outrage amongst

the Cornish residents

0:35:140:35:16

who say placing jam on first

was all about identity

0:35:160:35:19

as you can see here.

0:35:190:35:20

They said their staff would all be

fired. No, they didn't!

0:35:200:35:23

The National Trust property

said its staff would now wear these

0:35:230:35:26

badges Hashtag Jam First

and reassured customers

0:35:260:35:28

that their mothers were

safe in its tearoom.

0:35:280:35:30

Just for clarity in Cornwall, it is

jam and cream, Cornish brothers and

0:35:300:35:34

sisters, and in Devon, it is all

about cream and then jam. Does that

0:35:340:35:37

mean I will now have to go on

holiday in Devon? And eat. I mean, I

0:35:370:35:42

would love to go on holiday in

Devon. It means unique to have a

0:35:420:35:46

long, hard at yourself. I am with

her on this one because I feel that

0:35:460:35:50

the cream... It is like butter! It

displaces the jam. The journal is

0:35:500:35:55

quite clearly a bit more, a bit

bulkier than the cream so you can't

0:35:550:36:00

spread... Maybe it is the wrong type

of cream! Cream is about a

0:36:000:36:04

replacement. Cream, jam, Devon. All

the way. But, jam and then cream.

0:36:040:36:11

The big triple, they call it. I

don't care, as long as there is

0:36:110:36:16

loads on its! Talking about the

Winter Paralympics right now. Moving

0:36:160:36:22

away from scones.

0:36:220:36:23

We've been looking forward

to snowboarding making its debut

0:36:230:36:26

at the Games but it's

not gone quite to plan.

0:36:260:36:29

There has been a problem with the

starting gates.

0:36:290:36:33

Let's get the latest from our

reporter in Pyeongchang Kate Grey.

0:36:330:36:36

Kate, what's going on?

0:36:360:36:38

While busy any snowboarding?

There

has been since nobody but it has not

0:36:380:36:43

gone smoothly for the first day of

the event. The weather has, well,

0:36:430:36:47

better Rojer has increased

significantly here, about 16- 20

0:36:470:36:52

degrees which Catherine you will

know was very different for Howard

0:36:520:36:55

was at the Olympics is about as post

an issue already because the event

0:36:550:36:59

had to be moved forward because of

the conditions changing as it went

0:36:590:37:02

into the afternoon, they had to make

sure that the athletes on the snow

0:37:020:37:06

as soon as possible but due to an

issue to the starting gates,

0:37:060:37:10

athletes were trying to push out a

big gate, it should drop, as they

0:37:100:37:13

push out however the gate has not

been dropping and athletes have

0:37:130:37:17

literally been falling over the gate

which is obviously not ideal in the

0:37:170:37:20

way it works in border cross, you

would have seen in the Olympics, 4-6

0:37:200:37:24

athletes go at the same time and

here they have two or in

0:37:240:37:28

head-to-head, one is released on the

other hasn't so they have to restart

0:37:280:37:32

the events are obviously not a great

situation to the start of the

0:37:320:37:35

snowboarding and it has really

snowed a slow things up with what we

0:37:350:37:39

know is snowboarding has been taking

place, we have three British

0:37:390:37:42

athletes in action who said it is

the first time Great Britain have

0:37:420:37:46

been competing in this sport at the

Paralympic games are quite a

0:37:460:37:49

historic moment for them and there

has been mixed success, Enmore and

0:37:490:37:53

Owen Pick already are knocked out in

the elimination rounds but we found

0:37:530:37:57

out now, we have just seen the James

Barnes-Miller has also just been

0:37:570:38:01

knocked out. -- Ben Moore. Not great

news for Team GB in the

0:38:010:38:06

snowboarding, who knows if it has

anything to do with the fact it has

0:38:060:38:10

been delayed and there have been a

number of issues that as it stands

0:38:100:38:13

we over Great Britain will not

qualify through to the final stages

0:38:130:38:17

the border cross but there will be

another chance to go in the bank

0:38:170:38:20

slalom later on. Not an ideal start

and under the organisers here will

0:38:200:38:25

be having a little bit of a moment

wondering how they can move forward

0:38:250:38:28

because actually that the richer is

set to increase, we could be moving

0:38:280:38:33

up into the 20s as we move later on

into the week. Now there has been

0:38:330:38:36

the British success, or the British

athletes are to win very well done

0:38:360:38:40

by the coast because there is

curling in action, the British team

0:38:400:38:43

have had a mixed set of results,

they won their opening match on the

0:38:430:38:47

first day, they then lost to

Switzerland yesterday but redeemed

0:38:470:38:50

themselves and one against Finland

later on in the evening. And now

0:38:500:38:53

they are back in action today

against Sweden and how comfortable

0:38:530:38:57

the winning 4-0 with four ends to go

so hopefully they will continue to

0:38:570:39:01

form and bring a bit of British

success here but as it stands, it is

0:39:010:39:05

a little bit unpredictable but

hopefully we will be able to update

0:39:050:39:09

you on the curling of the moving

from its forward.

Kate, thank you.

0:39:090:39:12

Doesn't it look army in Pyeongchang.

I was there in and coats and all

0:39:120:39:17

sorts of things and Kate is wearing

short sleeves that looks like!

0:39:170:39:20

Lovely stuff!

0:39:200:39:31

Tottenham and England fans will be

waiting for the results of a scan

0:39:310:39:35

today on Harry Kane's ankle

after he was injured during Spurs'

0:39:350:39:38

4-1 win over Bournemouth.

0:39:380:39:39

Son Heung-Min scored twice to move

Tottenham up to third in the table.

0:39:390:39:43

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger

says his team need to get the fans

0:39:430:39:46

back on their side

after their recent poor form.

0:39:460:39:48

And the players did their bit

yesterday, beating Watford 3-0.

0:39:480:39:51

There were still plenty of empty

seats at The Emirates,

0:39:510:39:54

though.

0:39:540:39:54

There was a cracking Old Firm derby

0:39:540:39:56

in the Scottish Premiership -

Josh Windass put Rangers ahead

0:39:560:39:59

at Ibrox after just three minutes.

0:39:590:40:00

It was 2-2 at half-time before

Celtic snatched victory,

0:40:000:40:03

thanks to Odsonne Edouard.

0:40:030:40:04

Elsewhere in football,

there were emotional scenes

0:40:040:40:06

in Florence, where Fiorentina

played their first match

0:40:060:40:08

since the death of their

captain Davide Astori.

0:40:080:40:10

He passed away at the age

of 31 last weekend.

0:40:100:40:13

When Vitor Hugo scored the only goal

of the game against Benevento,

0:40:130:40:16

When Vitor Hugo scored the only goal

of the game against Benevento,

0:40:160:40:19

he held up a T-shirt

bearing Astori's face.

0:40:190:40:22

That was one of many

tributes during the game.

0:40:220:40:24

Wales moved up to second place

in the Six Nations table after 38-14

0:40:240:40:28

victory over Italy in Cardiff.

0:40:280:40:29

George North scored two

of their five tries,

0:40:290:40:31

securing the bonus win -

a great result for a much-changed

0:40:310:40:34

Wales side.

0:40:340:40:42

In the women's Six Nations,

Wales failed to get their challenge

0:40:430:40:45

back on track after a surprise 22-15

home defeat home to bottom side

0:40:450:40:48

Italy.

0:40:480:40:48

The Welsh went in 12-8

down at the break,

0:40:480:40:51

but managed to claw their way back

to within two points of Italy

0:40:510:40:54

but were undone by Michela Sillari's

late bonus point wining try.

0:40:540:40:57

It was the Italians' first victory

in nine Six Nations matches.

0:40:570:41:00

Scotland beat Ireland for the first

time in Women's Six Nations history.

0:41:000:41:04

Chloe Rollee ran practically

the entire length of the pitch

0:41:040:41:06

to score the second of the Scots two

tries, as they earned a 15-12

0:41:060:41:10

victory.

0:41:100:41:10

It was a case of so near,

yet so far for Tiger Woods

0:41:100:41:14

at the Valspar

Championship in Florida.

0:41:140:41:16

The 42-year-old former world number

one, who's slipped to 388th

0:41:160:41:18

in the rankings, was chasing

his first title in four

0:41:180:41:21

and a half years.

0:41:210:41:22

He needed to sink this putt

on the final hole to force a play

0:41:220:41:26

off with Paul Casey,

but just came up short.

0:41:260:41:28

The Englishman claimed

the victory by just one shot.

0:41:280:41:31

And finally, John Motson

delivered his final live BBC

0:41:310:41:33

commentary during yesterday's

Premier League match

0:41:330:41:35

between Arsenal and Watford.

0:41:350:41:36

The 72-year-old announced

in September he'd call time

0:41:360:41:38

on his BBC career at

the end of the season.

0:41:380:41:41

He'll continue to appear on Match

of the Day until May.

0:41:410:41:44

His first radio commentary

was Everton vs Derby

0:41:440:41:46

in December 1969.

0:41:460:41:47

When the end came,

he didn't even say goodbye.

0:41:470:41:49

Hie at the Emirates a

straightforward win for Arsenal.

0:41:490:41:52

Three points for Arsenal. Add a

little bit of an advancement as well

0:41:520:41:55

in Arsene Veng's planning for those

that against Mallarme. Arsenal

0:41:550:41:59

three, Watford zero.

0:41:590:42:02

You can see people watching Saint

what is the going to... Oh, never

0:42:020:42:06

mind. It was never about him.

0:42:060:42:08

Doctors in some parts of the UK say

they're concerned pressure

0:42:080:42:11

on the NHS is leading to

a deterioration in patient safety.

0:42:110:42:14

A report from the Royal College

of Physicians says

0:42:140:42:16

doctors feel the situation had

become worse in nearly

0:42:160:42:19

all areas of care.

0:42:190:42:20

We can speak now to Jane Dacre,

President of the Royal College

0:42:200:42:23

of Physicians, who joins us

from our London newsroom.

0:42:230:42:29

Good morning, Jane. This is quite an

extensive report. Tell us what your

0:42:290:42:35

main concerns are.

A main concerns

after the patients that we serve

0:42:350:42:40

because more than two thirds of

physicians feel that the patient

0:42:400:42:45

safety has deteriorated over the

last year. More than 80% of doctors

0:42:450:42:51

working in a situation where there

are workshops for workforce

0:42:510:42:56

shortages and has an impact not only

on their patients but on their own

0:42:560:43:00

role. More than 80% of doctors feel

that morale is coming down too. This

0:43:000:43:05

is a situation that happens every

winter. This winter has been a

0:43:050:43:10

particularly severe winter because

of flu and Nora virus and we are

0:43:100:43:14

beginning to feel that we are

running out of steam as. It is. We

0:43:140:43:18

would really welcome support from

the government to try and alleviate

0:43:180:43:22

it before next year.

Look at over in

a moment. Do your findings indicate

0:43:220:43:29

that doctors are concerned that live

are essentially in danger.

Doctors

0:43:290:43:33

go into medicine to support people

and help people. Occasionally, you

0:43:330:43:38

cannot do as much as you would like

to do. Doctors work really hard to

0:43:380:43:44

ensure that lives are not in danger

but sometimes things get outside

0:43:440:43:47

their control.

You talked about

working with the government, the

0:43:470:43:52

government says the Department of

Health and social care saying we are

0:43:520:43:55

committing to making the NHS the

safest health-care system in the

0:43:550:43:59

world. More staff would now

recommend their care to family and

0:43:590:44:03

friends than ever before and they go

on about the budget saying we know

0:44:030:44:07

the NHS is busy which is why we

supported at this winter with an

0:44:070:44:11

additional £437 million of funding

and gave a top priority in the

0:44:110:44:15

recent public for budget. Are you

saying it is an enough money?

Yes.

0:44:150:44:20

The NHS is under more pressure than

ever have seen before and we are not

0:44:200:44:25

keeping up with that. The government

is correct, it has given more money

0:44:250:44:29

and given money for winter pressure

but the money hasn't kept up with

0:44:290:44:32

demand and that is the problem. One

of the further difficulties is that

0:44:320:44:36

although there are now suggestions

that more A&E and nurses will be

0:44:360:44:43

trained, it takes a long time to

these people to be ready to work

0:44:430:44:47

autonomously in the service and so

we have a gap between now and when

0:44:470:44:52

the crisis has arisen and several

years time when the new doctors and

0:44:520:44:55

nurses and other healthcare

professionals will be coming in to

0:44:550:44:58

take up the roles.

What, in your

view, could be done to help in the

0:44:580:45:03

meantime?

We would hope that the

immigration rules for medical

0:45:030:45:08

practitioners might be relaxed. We

hear stories about these is running

0:45:080:45:12

out and people eating ready to come

in the UK and cannot because the

0:45:120:45:19

visa quota has been breached. The UK

has a fantastic reputation for

0:45:190:45:24

training and healthcare at it has a

fantastic reputation via the NHS. It

0:45:240:45:28

would like to do is offer training

opportunities for healthcare

0:45:280:45:32

professionals from other countries.

It is to say that we want to

0:45:320:45:36

increase immigration. We understand

that is not on the agenda. But we

0:45:360:45:41

feel that if people came over for

education and training in this

0:45:410:45:44

country and then returned, a skilled

to was they came from, we could

0:45:440:45:50

really help the service and help

them.

-- upskilled. Thank you,

0:45:500:45:55

Professor Jane. Let's find out what

is happening with the weather today.

0:45:550:46:03

Matt is with us.

0:46:030:46:11

Its gallery one of those weeks were

we see different conditions.

0:46:110:46:15

Its gallery one of those weeks were

we see different conditions. -- it's

0:46:150:46:18

going to be. The driest of all in

Scotland but elsewhere, it is a case

0:46:180:46:22

of grab something waterproof.

0:46:220:46:26

Scotland but elsewhere, it is a case

of grab something waterproof. At all

0:46:260:46:30

due to an area of low pressure. The

cloud is swirling around in an

0:46:300:46:35

anticlockwise manner. The most

persistent of the rain is in

0:46:350:46:38

northern England. Scotland, largely

dry. Brightest in the West. It's

0:46:380:46:46

England and Wales. If you look at

the finer detail of what's

0:46:460:46:49

happening, you can see the more

persistent rain remains across parts

0:46:490:46:53

of northern England. A scattering of

showers elsewhere. To the south-east

0:46:530:47:00

Midlands, south-east England, this

is where they could become heavy and

0:47:000:47:03

thundery. Windiest towards Wales and

the south-west. By the end of the

0:47:030:47:09

day, a few showers into Northern

Ireland but Scotland fired a large,

0:47:090:47:12

the driest of the weather. The

coolest of the conditions. Enter

0:47:120:47:21

tonight, showers continuing for

England and Wales in particular. We

0:47:210:47:26

will see one or two crop up into the

will West. Temperatures could drop

0:47:260:47:33

low enough for a touch of frost.

Particularly west and northern parts

0:47:330:47:38

of the UK. The chart into Tuesday

shows a big area of low pressure.

0:47:380:47:45

Before it arrives, we are in between

two low pressure systems. That means

0:47:450:47:51

the many, it will be a dry and

bright day. A few showers. 12 very

0:47:510:47:57

isolated ones drifting eastwards and

only a gentle breeze on Tuesday.

0:47:570:48:03

Most places spend the bulk of the

day dry and a bit more sunshine

0:48:030:48:08

around England and Wales today.

Temperatures above what it should be

0:48:080:48:12

that this time of the year. Into

Wednesday, a change. An area of low

0:48:120:48:18

pressure pushing towards us after a

dry start. Brightest of all in

0:48:180:48:21

eastern parts. The cloud thickens in

the West. Persistent in Northern

0:48:210:48:28

Ireland, West Wales. Strong to gale

force winds. Temperatures 10- 14

0:48:280:48:34

degrees. The middle part of the

week. There are signs, Dan and

0:48:340:48:45

Louise, before you get too

complacent about temperatures, we

0:48:450:48:47

could see colder weather. It's a

while off yet. We will keep you

0:48:470:48:55

updated.

0:48:550:48:59

I just can't believe it, Matt. A

genuine disappointment. Steph is

0:48:590:49:05

talking about skills to pay the

Bills.

0:49:050:49:11

I've been working on that released

two minutes.

0:49:110:49:14

British businesses are losing out

on billions of pounds in sales

0:49:140:49:17

because of the ongoing

skills shortage.

0:49:170:49:19

This is a joint report out this

morning from the Centre

0:49:190:49:22

for Economics and Business Research

and the parent company

0:49:220:49:24

of Clydesdale bank.

0:49:240:49:25

They say small and medium sized

businesses are missing out on £7

0:49:250:49:28

billion of sales because they can't

find the right people

0:49:280:49:31

to fill their job vacancies.

0:49:310:49:32

Lower

0:49:320:49:33

They say around a quarter

of a million more people would be

0:49:330:49:36

in work if they had

the right skills

0:49:360:49:38

Simon Swan is founder and chief

executive of the recruitment agency

0:49:380:49:41

marketplace Hiring Hub,

also an ambassador for

0:49:410:49:43

the National Apprenticeship Scheme.

0:49:430:49:48

what are recruiters telling you

about what it's like out there?

It's

0:49:480:49:52

incredibly challenging. I think

employment is at record highs. The

0:49:520:49:59

candidates are in short supply. With

things that are happening on a macro

0:49:590:50:03

level like Brexit and net migration

down, they are really struggling.

0:50:030:50:07

What type of skills we struggling?

It's broad. Digital in IT,

0:50:070:50:16

engineering, construction,

healthcare, social care. Even

0:50:160:50:19

funeral directors lorry drivers.

It's very broad.

The skills gap is

0:50:190:50:25

something we have been talking about

the years. Is anybody doing anything

0:50:250:50:32

about it?

Yes, the government is

trying to do things about it but

0:50:320:50:38

again, like I said with what's

happening, with things like Brexit,

0:50:380:50:43

they need to accelerate some of the

policies and work on what's happened

0:50:430:50:49

with visas and immigration in

general because this is not going to

0:50:490:50:54

get better soon.

If you are in

charge, what needs to be done?

I

0:50:540:51:02

would take NHS out of those visas.

Have a separate one for private

0:51:020:51:07

companies. I would encourage

employers if I was the government, I

0:51:070:51:12

would give incentives for employers

to develop training schemes.

Do you

0:51:120:51:19

think this is a problem which will

get worse?

Absolutely 100% it will.

0:51:190:51:25

Are there any companies you think

I'm mailing it when it comes to

0:51:250:51:30

getting the right skill set?

This

report looks specifically at small

0:51:300:51:36

and medium enterprises and small

businesses are struggling because

0:51:360:51:39

they are small. We are seeing large

companies, even the co-op I mention

0:51:390:51:45

of funeral directors, they did

running apprenticeship schemes to

0:51:450:51:50

bring through new directors and

there are some great case studies of

0:51:500:51:53

companies doing things brilliantly

but the SME types in particularly

0:51:530:51:58

are struggling because of a lack of

resources.

Should there be more

0:51:580:52:03

collaboration in the supply chain?

You have big companies which use a

0:52:030:52:08

supply chain should be more

collaboration?

Absolutely. It's

0:52:080:52:12

difficult. It's difficult to align

big companies, small companies,

0:52:120:52:19

governments, the education sector.

It's challenging. That is where we

0:52:190:52:22

need leadership.

If you're a kid at

school, what would you do to make

0:52:220:52:30

sure you're not going to miss on

this. It sounds like it is a great

0:52:300:52:34

market to be in.

I think there is a

real issue, careers advice hasn't

0:52:340:52:42

been fantastic. Really, if they can

align themselves closer to the

0:52:420:52:49

business community and get business

leaders into schools.

That's easier

0:52:490:52:51

than done. The curriculum doesn't

really have space for careers

0:52:510:52:56

advice. Schools don't get judged on

the employability.

It comes back to

0:52:560:53:05

government. I have been invited to

schools to talk. Which sectors are

0:53:050:53:10

hot. I really think it needs to be

looked at as well as the skills

0:53:100:53:17

issue. It goes right back to

education.

I've talk to businesses

0:53:170:53:22

which say, we want to get into

schools. A lot of young people now,

0:53:220:53:26

why can't businesses be in the space

of young people. Logging in, using

0:53:260:53:32

different video sites. Why is it

just about sending people into

0:53:320:53:37

schools? They try. Again,

businesses, it is exceptionally

0:53:370:53:43

broad. You have some companies that

embrace digital and others that

0:53:430:53:49

perhaps don't

0:53:490:53:55

perhaps don't know what vlogging is.

It's easy to get people to talk to

0:53:550:54:00

the kids in schools. Thank you very

much for your time.

0:54:000:54:04

Now this isn't something we usually

do on Breakfast because you're

0:54:040:54:07

probably eating right now,

but we're going to talk

0:54:070:54:09

about dog mess.

0:54:090:54:10

A campaign against dog poo has

started in a village

0:54:100:54:17

in Cambridgshire.

0:54:170:54:18

The idea is if you spot muck

on the floor, you upload

0:54:180:54:21

the location of it on to a map -

and it's hoped this will encourage

0:54:210:54:25

people to pick it up.

0:54:250:54:26

We've been asking if

the idea will catch on.

0:54:260:54:32

It's a good idea but I think it's

aimed at the wrong people, people

0:54:320:54:36

that don't pick their dog faeces up.

It's not difficult, is it? It's not

0:54:360:54:44

difficult to pick up your dogs mess.

I just don't understand why people

0:54:440:54:49

still don't and obviously don't buy

the amount I've seen left here

0:54:490:54:52

today.

A lot of

0:54:520:54:59

today.

A lot of places, it's not

really that North.

We just want

0:55:000:55:05

people picking it up. Look after

their dogs and be responsible dog

0:55:050:55:09

owners.

Being stuck doing it in

picking up and putting it in the

0:55:090:55:17

bin.

The dog things. That's what we

do.

I just find it is really

0:55:170:55:30

frustrating. We always carry a bag

review but we noticed just across

0:55:300:55:34

there, there is a bin.

0:55:340:55:40

there, there is a bin.

Lots of you

will want to talk about that this

0:55:400:55:43

morning. Send us your ideas. Is it a

good idea or not? You can email us.

0:55:430:55:49

Or share your thoughts with other

viewers on our Facebook page. You

0:55:490:55:53

can tweet about that or any of

today's stories. You can find us on

0:55:530:55:57

Twitter and Facebook. I know this is

a slightly separate issue but I had

0:55:570:56:04

a heated debate about the use of the

food tree. You know when people

0:56:040:56:10

leave bags in a tree. That is

another issue. That is a separate

0:56:100:56:15

one for a different day. We have

scholars and dog

0:56:150:59:39

Plenty more on our website

at the usual address.

0:59:390:59:41

Bye for now.

0:59:410:59:44

Hello, this is Breakfast

with Louise Minchin and Dan Walker.

0:59:440:59:47

The entertainer Sir Ken Dodd has

died at the age of 90.

0:59:470:59:51

# Happiness, happiness.

0:59:510:59:54

and his tickling stick died

in the home he was born in just days

0:59:540:59:58

-- The Liverpudlian comic famous

for his epic stand-up shows

0:59:581:00:01

and his tickling stick died

in the home he was born in just days

1:00:011:00:04

after marrying his

long-term partner.

1:00:041:00:06

We shall have one or two

glasses of tickle tonic,

1:00:061:00:09

and then we should go back

to Knotty Ash, up north,

1:00:091:00:12

Knotty Ash on Merseyside,

and I shall see the Diddy Men there,

1:00:121:00:15

so I'll give your regards to them.

1:00:151:00:18

Tributes have been

pouring in for the star.

1:00:181:00:21

We'll look back at Sir

Ken's life and work.

1:00:211:00:24

Good morning.

1:00:371:00:38

It's Monday the 12th of March.

1:00:381:00:39

Also this morning:

1:00:391:00:42

The Russian spy mystery -

Theresa May chairs a meeting

1:00:421:00:45

of her national security chiefs

as 500 people in Salisbury are told

1:00:451:00:48

to wash their clothes

as a precaution.

1:00:481:00:56

Five people have died after a

helicopter crashed into the East

1:00:581:01:01

River in New York last night. A

tough time to retailers with

1:01:011:01:07

consumer spending at its lowest

level for three years, according to

1:01:071:01:10

new research. I will find out why.

1:01:101:01:12

In sport, a faulty start gate means

the snowboard cross is suspended

1:01:121:01:16

at the Winter Paralympics.

1:01:161:01:17

Britain's contenders did

manage to make their runs,

1:01:171:01:19

but all three have been knocked out.

1:01:191:01:21

And Matt has the weather.

1:01:211:01:24

Good morning. Good morning. Frost

free start to the but if you are out

1:01:241:01:31

for dry weather, Scotland is the

place to be. One or two showers for

1:01:311:01:36

England and Wales. Your full

forecast is in 15 minutes. See you

1:01:361:01:40

then. Will do, thank you. Just on

seven o'clock.

1:01:401:01:44

Sir Ken Dodd, the much-loved

comedian, has died at the age of 90.

1:01:441:01:48

Described by his publicist as "one

of the last music hall greats"

1:01:481:01:51

Sir Ken was known for his marathon

stage performances and the creation

1:01:511:01:54

of the Diddy Men and

the tickling stick.

1:01:541:01:56

The performer from Liverpool had

recently spent six weeks in hospital

1:01:561:01:59

with a chest infection.

1:01:591:02:00

On Friday, he married his partner

of 40 years, Anne Jones.

1:02:001:02:03

Caroline Davies looks

back at his life.

1:02:031:02:08

Tickling sticks and Diddy Men,

Ken Dodd was a variety performer

1:02:081:02:11

with a gift for the surreal...

1:02:111:02:17

What a brilliant day for going up

to Count Von Zeppelin and saying

1:02:171:02:20

"You'll never sell

a sausage that size!"

1:02:201:02:22

..and the love of a

catchphrase or three.

1:02:221:02:24

How tickled I am!

1:02:241:02:25

How tickled I am

by all this goodwill.

1:02:251:02:28

What about you, Mrs?

1:02:281:02:29

Have you been tickled by goodwill?

1:02:291:02:30

Knick-knocky, knick-knock,

knick-knocky knick-knack!

1:02:301:02:31

Knick-knocky, knick-knock,

knicky-knacky-noo!

1:02:311:02:37

Proud of his Merseyside roots,

the coal merchant's son fro

1:02:371:02:40

Knotty Ash became a chart-topping

singer, a television star,

1:02:401:02:42

and a ventriloquist.

1:02:421:02:50

Doddy!

1:02:511:02:51

Hi-ya, Doddy!

1:02:511:02:52

Although silly on stage,

Dodd was serious about his craft.

1:02:521:02:55

Freud said that a laugh is a sudden

explosion of psychic energy.

1:02:551:02:58

Of course, the trouble with Freud

was he never played second house

1:02:581:03:01

Friday night at Glasglow Empire.

1:03:011:03:03

He still lived in the home he grew

up in and guarded his

1:03:031:03:06

private life carefully.

1:03:061:03:09

In 1989, that was shattered

when he faced charges

1:03:091:03:12

of massive tax evasion.

1:03:121:03:20

He had 20 offshore bank accounts

and more than £300,000 hidden

1:03:231:03:26

around his house.

1:03:261:03:27

He was acquitted and

continued performing.

1:03:271:03:28

Last year, he was given a knighthood

in recognition of his charity

1:03:281:03:31

and comedy work.

1:03:311:03:32

We shall have one or two glasses

of tickle tonic and then we shall go

1:03:321:03:36

back to Knotty Ash up north,

Knotty Ash on Merseyside,

1:03:361:03:39

and I shall see the Diddy Men there,

so I'll give your regards to them.

1:03:391:03:43

Aged 90, Dodd was recently

hospitalised with a chest infection

1:03:431:03:46

but he still wanted

to go back on stage.

1:03:461:03:52

I look forward to getting

back to doing my job -

1:03:521:03:55

the only job that I have ever had,

the only job that I know.

1:03:551:03:59

# Happiness, happiness.

1:03:591:03:59

After more than 60 years

of making others laugh,

1:03:591:04:02

it was performing to the British

public that Dodd said

1:04:021:04:05

gave him enormous happiness.

1:04:051:04:06

Happiness!

1:04:061:04:14

Some of Ken Dodd's fans and former

colleagues have been paying tribute.

1:04:161:04:24

Plenty of his classics are on social

media this morning.

1:05:101:05:12

The National Security Council

is to look at the latest evidence

1:05:121:05:15

of the suspected poisoning

of a former Russian double agent

1:05:151:05:18

and his daughter.

1:05:181:05:19

An assessment will be made

on who might have carried out

1:05:191:05:22

the nerve agent attack.

1:05:221:05:23

Sergei and Yulia Skripal remain

critically ill in hospital.

1:05:231:05:26

Our political correspondent

Leila Nathoo is in Salisbury

1:05:261:05:28

for us this morning.

1:05:281:05:29

for us this morning.

1:05:291:05:32

Good morning to you. I know you have

been there for quite some time, many

1:05:321:05:37

days, what is the latest?

There is

some progress being made here with

1:05:371:05:42

the investigation. We know now that

traces of that nerve agent, the

1:05:421:05:47

deadly substance that the Skripals

were exposed to was found in the

1:05:471:05:52

Zizzi restaurant they dined and the

mill pub went for a drink last

1:05:521:05:55

Sunday afternoon. Police are

investigating how and where the two

1:05:551:06:02

were exposed to the substance. There

is an operation examining Sergei

1:06:021:06:10

Skripal's car, over the weekend at

Deakin -- decontamination exercise

1:06:101:06:15

was done along with the military who

insisted, police cars have been

1:06:151:06:18

removed from a number of locations,

and we know that the table at the

1:06:181:06:24

Zizzi restaurant where the too had

their lunch we believe were so

1:06:241:06:28

contaminated it has now been

destroyed. -- too. People who are

1:06:281:06:32

dining at the Zizzi restaurant or

had a drink at the pub up until

1:06:321:06:37

Monday evening with those two

locations were sealed off, they are

1:06:371:06:40

being told to wash their clothes as

a precaution. There is something to

1:06:401:06:45

hear that the advice is only just

been issued, one week later,

1:06:451:06:48

although officials stressed there is

a limited risk, a low risk, and

1:06:481:06:52

there is no need to be alarmed.

Theresa May will chair a meeting of

1:06:521:06:56

the National Security Council this

morning to discuss the pop is -- and

1:06:561:07:01

clear the possibility of the

Russians. Amber Rudd has already

1:07:011:07:05

been here to visit the scene, she

has chaired a meeting of the COBRA

1:07:051:07:10

committee but clearly, although she

is urging caution not to jump to

1:07:101:07:13

conclusions, there is clearly the

consideration of the implications of

1:07:131:07:17

what happened here for UK - Russia

relations at the highest level of

1:07:171:07:21

government.

Thank you, good to talk

to you.

1:07:211:07:24

A bitter row has broken out

at the top of the Labour Party

1:07:241:07:27

with a shadow cabinet minister

being removed from her post,

1:07:271:07:30

apparently against her will.

1:07:301:07:35

Debbie Abrahams was the spokeswoman

on Work and Pensions.

1:07:351:07:37

We speak now to our political

correspondent Ben Wright.

1:07:371:07:39

What's going on?

1:07:391:07:42

What do you know about what is going

on. Good morning.

This erupted late

1:07:421:07:48

last night and it seems that Debbie

Abrahams met a couple of people from

1:07:481:07:53

Jeremy Corbyn's offers to discuss

what the party describes as an

1:07:531:07:56

employment issue. Sometime on

Friday. The Labour Party itself are

1:07:561:08:02

not elaborating on what the

employment issue is that we

1:08:021:08:04

understand the concerns an

allegation of bullying which she

1:08:041:08:07

firmly categorically denies. As they

met on Friday, and then last night,

1:08:071:08:13

the Labour Party issued a statement

saying that Debbie Abrahams had

1:08:131:08:17

stood aside while the Labour Party

investigates this employment issue

1:08:171:08:20

and almost immediately off the back

of that Debbie Abrahams herself

1:08:201:08:26

released and excoriating statement,

saying she had no detail about the

1:08:261:08:29

complaint against her, process or

the timescales, she said the

1:08:291:08:34

treatment she received by certain

individuals in the leader's offers

1:08:341:08:37

over the last 10 months has been

aggressive, intimidating and wholly

1:08:371:08:41

unprofessional, showing a bullying

culture of the worst kind and she

1:08:411:08:44

has now taken her formal complaint

to the Labour Party and

1:08:441:08:48

parliamentary authority so

extraordinary row that has erupted

1:08:481:08:50

at the top of the Labour Party,

shattering a piece that has existed

1:08:501:08:54

many months, actually.

Thank you

indeed.

1:08:541:08:57

Five people have died

after a helicopter crashed

1:08:571:08:59

into the East River

in New York last night.

1:08:591:09:03

The pilot managed to free himself.

1:09:031:09:10

He was pulled out

1:09:101:09:11

of the water by rescuers.

1:09:111:09:13

An investigation will be held

to determine the cause of the crash.

1:09:131:09:16

That news has been updated in the

last 40 minutes or so.

1:09:161:09:20

The former commander of the UK's

maritime forces says Britain's

1:09:201:09:22

ability to "fight and win

on the frontline" was being affected

1:09:221:09:25

by budget cuts.

1:09:251:09:26

Rear Admiral Alex Burton said the UK

is at risk of losing its status

1:09:261:09:30

as a "credible military power".

1:09:301:09:31

He's the latest in a long line

of senior military figures to call

1:09:311:09:35

for more spending on defence.

1:09:351:09:36

The government said spending

is growing to meet ever-changing

1:09:361:09:38

threats.

1:09:381:09:42

A new survey suggests almost two

thirds of doctors in some parts

1:09:421:09:45

of the UK feel patient safety has

deteriorated over the past year.

1:09:451:09:50

The report, by the Royal College

of Physicians, found that growing

1:09:501:09:53

pressures on NHS staff have led

to concerns about patient care.

1:09:531:09:56

The government says it's absolutely

committed to making the NHS

1:09:561:09:59

the safest healthcare

system in the world.

1:09:591:10:06

Former Liverpool footballer Jamie

Carragher has apologised after a

1:10:061:10:09

video of him spitting at a girl in a

car from his own vehicle was

1:10:091:10:13

released. It happened while he drove

back from the Liverpool Manchester

1:10:131:10:17

United match on Saturday. On Twitter

he said he had been goaded three or

1:10:171:10:21

four times while being filmed and

said there was no excuse for what he

1:10:211:10:25

did, he did also say he has

contacted the family and apologised.

1:10:251:10:34

A teenage photographer's shots

of The Beatles' first concerts

1:10:341:10:37

in the United States

are expected to sell for 250,000

1:10:371:10:39

pounds at auction.

1:10:391:10:40

Mike Mitchell, who was 18

at the time, took hundreds

1:10:401:10:43

of pictures of the Fab Four's gigs

at the Washington Coliseum

1:10:431:10:46

and the Baltimore

Civic Centre in 1964.

1:10:461:10:48

He also attended their first press

conference and captured the band's

1:10:481:10:51

arrival at Union Station.

1:10:511:10:54

If you want a little Ken Dodd fact,

to songs by the Beatles in the

1:10:541:11:04

1960s, they were the only two songs

that outsold Ken Dodd's songs.

1:11:041:11:08

Incredible.

1:11:081:11:09

The annual Crufts dog show had to be

temporarily halted after two

1:11:091:11:12

protesters stormed the venue.

1:11:121:11:15

As this year's winner,

a 2.5-year-old whippet called Tease,

1:11:151:11:17

made her way to the podium,

this happened - two demonstrators

1:11:171:11:20

from the animal rights group PETA

emerged from the audience.

1:11:201:11:27

They were quickly chased down

and subdued by security staff.

1:11:271:11:33

You can see Tease obviously being

held by her owner who was quite

1:11:331:11:37

concerned.

1:11:371:11:37

No animals or owners were harmed.

1:11:371:11:40

Which is good news. It is 711 in the

morning.

1:11:401:11:45

Hundreds of people who were in

the same pub and restaurant

1:11:451:11:48

as the former Russian

spy and his daughter

1:11:481:11:50

when they were poisoned

with a nerve agent in Salisbury,

1:11:501:11:53

have been told to wash

their clothes, watches,

1:11:531:11:55

phones and anything else they had

on them at the time.

1:11:551:12:01

low

1:12:011:12:01

and the action has been

recommended as a precaution.

1:12:011:12:07

-- Public Health England

says the risk is very

1:12:071:12:09

low

1:12:091:12:09

and the action has been

recommended as a precaution.

1:12:091:12:12

Professor Alistair Hay is an expert

in Toxicology from the University

1:12:121:12:15

of Leeds and joins us now.

1:12:151:12:16

Good morning, thank you. First of

all, we don't know or you don't know

1:12:161:12:20

as yet, do you, exactly what the

substance is?

All we know is it is a

1:12:201:12:25

nerve agent of one kind, there are a

variety of different kinds but the

1:12:251:12:28

reasons unknown the government

hasn't said exactly what it is.

Do

1:12:281:12:31

we know why it has taken one week

for this advice to come out? Is it

1:12:311:12:36

because it has taken a long time to

assess it and analyse what the

1:12:361:12:40

substance is?

Absolutely. They will

have to be doing in Salisbury is

1:12:401:12:43

just trying to assess what

contamination may be in different

1:12:431:12:46

places and this takes time. The

collection of the samples is one

1:12:461:12:50

aspect of it but the processing time

in the laboratory is considerable.

1:12:501:12:54

You have to do extensive cleanup of

samples before you can process them

1:12:541:12:58

through equipment.

Maybe they

haven't told us because of security

1:12:581:13:04

reasons but once they know what it

is, ones that tell them where it

1:13:041:13:08

would have come from originally?

It

is possible. They will do exactly

1:13:081:13:12

what the agent is and the dock is

treating the father and daughter

1:13:121:13:15

would've been told and that would

guide their treatment. -- doctors.

1:13:151:13:20

From an environmental Sample, if

they can tell that the cursor

1:13:201:13:23

chemicals that may have been used to

make the nerve agent, they may be

1:13:231:13:28

present, also unwanted reaction

products in any chemical reaction to

1:13:281:13:31

make something of a combination of

those things helps to give you a

1:13:311:13:35

sort of fingerprint that might

suggest which laboratory came from.

1:13:351:13:38

If you are watching this in

Salisbury, what sort of risk factor

1:13:381:13:41

are we talking about. Should you be

concerned or is this precautionary?

1:13:411:13:46

It is absolutely a precautionary

measure. If people had been exposed

1:13:461:13:50

they would have had symptoms by now.

With the government is doing or

1:13:501:13:54

public health England is

recommending, is coming to avoid

1:13:541:13:58

repeated contact and we know that

with repeated contact you can get a

1:13:581:14:02

buildup, an accumulation if you

like, in the body, which may take

1:14:021:14:05

you to a threshold where there could

be a problem. The evidence suggests

1:14:051:14:09

the exposures would have been very

low, the concentration in the

1:14:091:14:14

environment is low this is a

precautionary measure. It may be a

1:14:141:14:18

bit inconvenient for people but the

government is playing safe. I think

1:14:181:14:21

it is in a difficult position. If

one did become ill at some point and

1:14:211:14:26

it was known that the government

knew about this, it would have got a

1:14:261:14:31

lot of stick so here it is saying

follow this advice and this will

1:14:311:14:35

guarantee your safety.

Talk to us if

you would a little bit about the

1:14:351:14:39

difference between a nerve agent and

polonium, for example, which we know

1:14:391:14:43

has been used before.

1:14:431:14:48

Nerve agents are chemical. Polonium

is also chemical but it's

1:14:481:14:54

radioactive. Radioactive agents

usually poison over a longer time.

1:14:541:15:00

Radiation gradually destroys cells.

It takes some time to become

1:15:001:15:05

manifest. With a nerve agent,

depending on the route of the

1:15:051:15:09

Administration, you are looking at

something that could have an effect

1:15:091:15:11

in minutes or even hours or days

later.

Is this something you could

1:15:111:15:17

make yourself? Is it freely

available? Is it dark Web type

1:15:171:15:22

material?

It was freely available,

we would be in real difficulty.

1:15:221:15:27

These are highly restricted

chemicals. Of course, competent

1:15:271:15:33

chemists can make these things. Look

at the structure and find out how

1:15:331:15:40

can combine these things to make

finished agent. They are at high

1:15:401:15:47

risk because of exposure and leakage

from equipment.

It's been

1:15:471:15:51

fascinating to talk to you.

1:15:511:15:54

Here's Matt with a look

at this morning's weather.

1:15:541:16:00

A bit of everything this morning.

Good morning to you. Some wet

1:16:011:16:07

weather around. The driest weather

in Scotland but grab something

1:16:071:16:11

waterproof, there will be plenty of

showers. Longer spells of brain in

1:16:111:16:16

northern England as well. The

tell-tale sign is the fact that the

1:16:161:16:21

cloud is revolving in this

anticlockwise direction. The further

1:16:211:16:27

north you go, Scotland and Northern

Ireland. One or two to north-east of

1:16:271:16:33

Scotland. It's here where you will

be dodging the showers all day. That

1:16:331:16:42

rain will continue for many. Some

gaps between the showers. We see

1:16:421:16:48

them in south-east England. This is

where the could be the odd rumble of

1:16:481:16:54

thunder mixed in. The western side

of Scotland, a few showers into the

1:16:541:17:01

afternoon. Any brightness in the

south, we could see temperatures at

1:17:011:17:09

11, 12 degrees. Continuing with the

rain tonight across the eastern half

1:17:091:17:16

of England. One or two showers into

the West. Some clearer skies around

1:17:161:17:22

tonight. Them last night. A touch of

frost, some distant fog patches. We

1:17:221:17:28

have seen some late showers. For

tomorrow, in between low pressure.

1:17:281:17:35

This little bump on the isobars, a

Richard Pye pressure which signals

1:17:351:17:40

fine weather for many. Some

outbreaks of rain which will clear.

1:17:401:17:48

Fairly well scattered. Most places

will avoid them. It will be fairly

1:17:481:17:55

pleasant when the sun is out.

Temperatures in parts of Scotland

1:17:551:18:00

could get into double figures.

Wednesday, a cool start to eastern

1:18:001:18:04

areas. Throughout the day, East

Anglia and the south-east, the cloud

1:18:041:18:12

thicken up for some occasional rain.

Northern Ireland, Southwest Wales

1:18:121:18:18

and Cornwall, the rain persistent.

Those wins coming up in the south,

1:18:181:18:24

pushing temperatures for many into

double figures. We see temperatures,

1:18:241:18:31

but the sunshine lifting. Overall

through the working week, fairly

1:18:311:18:34

mild. We differ in midweek onwards.

Before we get too complacent, always

1:18:341:18:42

bring terms and conditions, things

could turn a little bit colder wants

1:18:421:18:45

more of the time we hit next week.

1:18:451:18:52

I'm just going to ignore it. Can we

put a little sticker up?

I just feel

1:18:521:18:59

like building new.

1:18:591:19:05

The energy industry say that more

people switched electricity supply

1:19:051:19:09

last month than ever before.

And

there is a good bit of news. Energy

1:19:091:19:14

UK represents all the providers and

they have said there were 660,000

1:19:141:19:18

people in February alone who

switched, the highest number ever

1:19:181:19:23

recorded. That's about 24,000 a day.

Also, that is up 60% compared to

1:19:231:19:31

February last year. It's a big rise.

There is now commitment between lots

1:19:311:19:39

of the providers called the energy

switch guarantee which makes it

1:19:391:19:43

simpler, faster and safer to switch

your supply. That has made a bit of

1:19:431:19:48

a difference. It's probably because

we keep on about it. As long as

1:19:481:19:55

people are getting a good deal.

That's the main thing. They are

1:19:551:20:00

saying lots of people are saving

money and there have been over a

1:20:001:20:03

million people so far who have saved

from switching.

1:20:031:20:16

We

1:20:201:20:21

have had unprecedented

1:20:211:20:22

The number of people detained

in mental health hospitals

1:20:221:20:25

in England has risen

by 40% in a decade.

1:20:251:20:27

One of those was 20-year-old Tee

who was 18 when she was sectioned.

1:20:271:20:31

Breakfast has had unprecedented

access to the secure

1:20:311:20:33

hospital where Tee's been staying -

and in the first of two special

1:20:331:20:37

reports, Graham Satchell

joined her as she prepared

1:20:371:20:39

to have her section lifted.

1:20:391:20:40

So, any worries?

1:20:401:20:41

How are you feeling?

1:20:411:20:42

I'm a bit nervous because obviously

I've been here for quite awhile

1:20:421:20:45

so it becomes kind of

normal, the routine.

1:20:451:20:47

Tee has been locked up for her own

safety for almost two years.

1:20:471:20:51

No sharp objects, not even a mirror.

1:20:511:20:53

She was detained under

the Mental Health Act just

1:20:531:20:55

after turning 18.

1:20:551:20:56

I just remember feeling every

emotion under the sun.

1:20:561:20:59

I was scared.

1:20:591:20:59

I felt upset that I've let my family

down, I felt a bit lost.

1:20:591:21:03

Initially it was really

horrible and a really

1:21:031:21:05

scary process and I started to

realise that that was what I needed.

1:21:051:21:09

They didn't section

me for no reason.

1:21:091:21:11

There was obviously a reason why.

1:21:111:21:19

Tee has been treated

at St Andrews in Northampton,

1:21:191:21:21

one of the biggest secure mental

health hospitals in the first time

1:21:211:21:25

news cameras have been allowed.

1:21:251:21:27

Tee's problems started

when she was 14.

1:21:271:21:29

I used to self-harm so that got more

intense and quite serious and things

1:21:291:21:33

like overdosing, which obviously

I look back on now and am

1:21:331:21:36

glad nothing worked.

1:21:361:21:37

glad nothing worked.

1:21:371:21:37

Things like that,

just spiralled out of

1:21:371:21:40

control and I felt like

I couldn't cope anymore.

1:21:401:21:42

Tee, it's almost time

to leave hospital.

1:21:421:21:50

How do you think you've

done in your time here?

1:21:501:21:52

When I first got here,

I was really anxious

1:21:521:21:55

and thought I would be here forever.

1:21:551:21:57

Tee has worked hard

to get to this point.

1:21:571:21:59

With therapy and medication, she has

learnt to manage her emotions

1:21:591:22:02

but the number of people

being detained in mental health

1:22:021:22:05

hospitals in England has

gone up 40% in a decade.

1:22:051:22:07

The majority of our patients

are detained patients.

1:22:071:22:10

They are here under a section

of the Mental Health Act.

1:22:101:22:13

Sadly there is an inexhaustible

supply of damaged

1:22:131:22:15

young women out there

who could replace the ladies

1:22:151:22:18

who are leaving.

1:22:181:22:18

Why are numbers so high?

1:22:181:22:20

The moment of crisis for Tee came

issued from child to adult mental

1:22:201:22:23

health services.

1:22:231:22:24

The criteria for getting help

as an adult is different.

1:22:241:22:26

Waiting times are longer.

1:22:261:22:28

As she turned 18, Tee had months

of no support and ended up

1:22:281:22:31

taking an overdose.

1:22:311:22:32

I felt like I was kind

of just left so that gap,

1:22:321:22:35

it really made me worse.

1:22:351:22:37

I deteriortated, I felt like nobody

cared, I pushed the ones

1:22:371:22:40

I loved the most away

because they thought,

1:22:401:22:42

they don't care so I don't care.

1:22:421:22:45

It was really difficult having

that period of support.

1:22:451:22:50

Transition is supposed

to be a gradual managed

1:22:501:22:52

period from children's mental health

services to adult mental health

1:22:521:22:56

services but for many young people,

it's like falling off a cliff edge

1:22:561:22:59

and that's how many young people

describe that process.

1:22:591:23:02

So there's a long, long way to go

before we have anything looking

1:23:021:23:05

like optimal young people.

1:23:051:23:08

I'm still crying.

1:23:081:23:09

Tee is saying her last goodbyes.

1:23:091:23:10

Well done, Tee.

1:23:101:23:11

Better things are coming.

1:23:111:23:15

It doesn't all have

to be so miserable.

1:23:151:23:21

I'm actually excited to get

out and live my life.

1:23:211:23:24

NHS England told us they're spelling

spending an extra £280 million

1:23:241:23:27

a year and trialling new models

of care, young people moving

1:23:271:23:31

to adult mental health services

at 25 rather than 18.

1:23:311:23:34

But they acknowledge too many young

people are not getting the treatment

1:23:341:23:37

they should expect.

1:23:371:23:39

You did it.

1:23:391:23:42

We did.

1:23:421:23:43

Tee is one success story.

1:23:431:23:45

Graham Satchell, BBC News.

1:23:451:23:53

and many thanks to Tee to letting us

follow a look at her story.

1:23:571:24:03

Tomorrow, we will be asking that

question, if there is enough support

1:24:031:24:07

in the community. To stop people

like Tee being readmitted to

1:24:071:24:10

hospital. And eating else we are

talking about as well.

1:24:101:24:21

There's a big treasure hunt

going on right across the UK

1:24:211:24:24

with primary school children looking

for books by Shakespeare.

1:24:241:24:27

Breakfast's Tim Muffett

is in Rotherham for us this

1:24:271:24:29

morning.

1:24:291:24:29

Good morning. We are harnessing our

inner Bhatia. For the launch of

1:24:291:24:40

Shakespeare week.

1:24:401:24:45

Shakespeare week. The idea is to

celebrate and learn about the

1:24:461:24:49

greatest playwright of all. The

other people to read and enjoy. They

1:24:491:24:58

are going to be wrapped up and left

in special places. We have been

1:24:581:25:03

McMillan, the bard of Barnsley,

getting the kids into a

1:25:031:25:07

Shakespearean mood as well. Lots to

talk about. Why should young people

1:25:071:25:12

be celebrating Shakespeare?

He

invented so many words that we now

1:25:121:25:17

use every day, especially.

But

behold, it is a dagger I

1:25:171:28:43

are going to drop a little

as we head the weekend.

1:28:431:28:46

I'm back with the latest

from the BBC London newsroom

1:28:461:28:48

in half an hour.

1:28:481:28:51

Hello this is Breakfast

with Louise Minchin and Dan Walker.

1:28:521:28:55

Here's a summary of today's main

stories from BBC News.

1:28:551:28:58

The comedian Sir Ken Dodd has

died at the age of 90.

1:28:581:29:05

How tickled I am but all this

goodwill. What about you Mrs? Have

1:29:051:29:10

you been tickled by goodwill?

1:29:101:29:13

Described by his publicist as "one

of the last music hall greats,"

1:29:131:29:16

Sir Ken was known for his marathon

stage performances and the creation

1:29:161:29:19

of the Diddy Men and

the tickling stick.

1:29:191:29:22

The Liverpool based performer had

recently been treated in hospital

1:29:221:29:24

for a chest infection.

1:29:241:29:27

You have approximately 30 seconds to

make friends with the audience. You

1:29:271:29:33

can play an audience like you play

in instrument, you know where the

1:29:331:29:37

hotspots are, where they need

coaxing, where you can float. At

1:29:371:29:43

midnight, ladies, your husband, your

boyfriend, or both of them!

1:29:431:29:48

Some of Ken Dodd's fans and former

colleagues have been paying

1:29:481:29:52

Radio presenter Stephanie Hirst

reminised about seeing him on stage,

1:29:521:29:54

saying:

1:29:541:30:00

Actor Rory Cowan posted a picture

of himself with Ken,

1:30:001:30:03

saying:

1:30:031:30:06

And comedian Robin Ince made

reference to his run in with HMRC:

1:30:141:30:17

In other news, a bitter row has

broken out at the top

1:30:341:30:37

of the Labour Party

with a shadow cabinet minister

1:30:371:30:40

being removed from her post,

apparently against her will.

1:30:401:30:42

Labour says Debbie Abrahams stepped

down as spokeswoman on Work

1:30:421:30:45

and Pensions while an employment

issue is investigated.

1:30:451:30:47

But Mrs Abrahams claims that she's

the victim of a bullying culture

1:30:471:30:51

in the party.

1:30:511:30:59

Five people have died after

a helicopter they were travelling

1:31:011:31:04

in crashed into the East River

in New York last night.

1:31:041:31:07

Police say the pilot managed to free

himself and was pulled out

1:31:071:31:10

of the water by rescuers.

1:31:101:31:11

He's now left hospital.

1:31:111:31:12

An investigation will be held

to determine the cause of the crash.

1:31:121:31:16

The former commander of the UK's

maritime forces says Britain's

1:31:161:31:18

ability to "fight and win

on the frontline" was being affected

1:31:181:31:21

by budget cuts.

1:31:211:31:22

Rear Admiral Alex Burton said the UK

is at risk of losing its status

1:31:221:31:27

as a "credible military power".

1:31:271:31:29

He's the latest in a long line

of senior military figures to call

1:31:291:31:32

for more spending on defence.

1:31:321:31:34

The government said spending

is growing to meet ever-changing

1:31:341:31:36

threats.

1:31:361:31:39

A new survey suggests almost two

thirds of doctors in some parts

1:31:391:31:42

of the UK feel patient safety has

deteriorated over the past year.

1:31:421:31:46

The report by the Royal

College of Physicians

1:31:461:31:48

found that growing pressures on NHS

staff have led to concerns

1:31:481:31:51

about patient care.

1:31:511:31:52

The government says it's absolutely

committed to making the NHS

1:31:521:31:54

the safest healthcare

system in the world.

1:31:541:32:02

I feel that we have reached a new

moment, we're actually going to fall

1:32:031:32:07

out the next story. We have been

arguing about this for the last hour

1:32:071:32:12

or so. It is to do with scones.

Where do you put the jam on question

1:32:121:32:16

mark before or after the cream. The

National trust property in Cornwall,

1:32:161:32:23

which is important, has apologised

to advertising its cream teas with

1:32:231:32:26

the jam on top of the cream. Because

it is a different tradition. This is

1:32:261:32:31

the offending advert, it shows off

its cream teas for mothering day. It

1:32:311:32:37

is wrong, isn't it? It is not wrong!

As you can clearly see, the jam is

1:32:371:32:43

on first. Basing jam on first was

all about their identity, residents

1:32:431:32:48

say. As you can see, that is

correct, everybody. I don't know

1:32:481:32:54

whether it is from Devon or Cornwall

but I argue with the order. I think

1:32:541:32:58

it should be scones, cream, jam. The

staff know where these badges. --

1:32:581:33:04

will now wear these. Today I have

formed a political party and we are

1:33:041:33:11

called jam first because I put a

pole on social media, over 70% of

1:33:111:33:18

people are in agreement that you go

jam first and I will let you into a

1:33:181:33:23

secret, you are backtracking, you

are saying hold on a minute, what

1:33:231:33:27

happens if it is a hot scone. You

cannot put the cream on first

1:33:271:33:31

because it will melt. That is why

you put the jam on first! I like

1:33:311:33:37

that he brought in a private

conversation to win that argument.

1:33:371:33:40

They would never be hot. They would

be warm. You are doing a classic

1:33:401:33:45

diversionary tactic. You have

realised that you have wandered down

1:33:451:33:49

the road... I am not going to

change, I have been doing this for

1:33:491:33:52

many years. You have a supporter in

me. The one with jam and cream on

1:33:521:33:57

top? We are losing. He has done a

poll. It is eight cream- jam poll.

1:33:571:34:02

Anyway. We have sorted it out. What

is happening in the sport.

1:34:021:34:08

We've been looking forward

to snowboarding making its debut

1:34:081:34:10

at the Games but it's

not gone quite to plan.

1:34:101:34:13

Let's get the latest from our

reporter in Pyeongchang Kate Grey.

1:34:131:34:18

-- you know how they push off the

start gate and then they chase each

1:34:181:34:23

other down the snowboard cross

track?

1:34:231:34:25

Let's get the latest from our

reporter in Pyeongchang Kate Grey.

1:34:251:34:28

Kate, what's going on?

1:34:281:34:29

Have we seen any snowboarding this

morning?

Yes, you will be pleased to

1:34:291:34:35

hear the snowboarding Cross did go

ahead today. The temperature has

1:34:351:34:39

increased quite a bit here, you

would be up to see behind me there

1:34:391:34:43

is no snow over the last week and

when you are here at the Olympics

1:34:431:34:47

they have a lot of snow and it was

cold and now it is up to about 16

1:34:471:34:52

degrees. It is late afternoon to the

temperature is dropping that they

1:34:521:34:55

haven't all sorts of issues in the

snowboarding with the start date.

1:34:551:34:58

Have the issues that the start gate

should drop down of the skaters

1:34:581:35:02

crossed the line and unfortunately

it was not and athletes were falling

1:35:021:35:07

over so they brought in rope over

the athletes were then having to

1:35:071:35:12

cross rope to get into their race is

a really not ideal situations but

1:35:121:35:16

luckily, it has gone ahead, it is

just about coming to an end and we

1:35:161:35:21

have had three British athletes in

action and unfortunately none of

1:35:211:35:24

them made it through to the final

rounds to fight it out for the

1:35:241:35:27

medals but we had Owen Pick and then

more making it through to the

1:35:271:35:31

elimination round and written best

result came from James Barnes-Miller

1:35:311:35:34

who made it through to the

quarterfinal. -- Ben Moore.. I am

1:35:341:35:39

joined by James, the first time

competing at a Paralympic games and

1:35:391:35:42

the great written, what an honour to

be a debutante to the British team.

1:35:421:35:46

It is meagre, we are the first team

to represent Paralympic GB and it is

1:35:461:35:51

Mecca.

-- mega. Were you affected by

the problems they had?

The racing

1:35:511:36:01

was good, I hope everyone enjoyed

it, I am happy, as long as I raced

1:36:011:36:05

well I am happy. The start date

isn't ideal but we carried on racing

1:36:051:36:09

so it is a winner.

Classic order

attitude there, do not let it frees

1:36:091:36:14

up, but you are actually in December

2017 you had your kit stolen, was

1:36:141:36:19

there a time may be where you

thought you wouldn't even be at the

1:36:191:36:23

games?

Never crossed my mind, it

was... I just had to think more like

1:36:231:36:29

how am I going to get to the next

race and I had loads of sport, the

1:36:291:36:33

BBC helped me massively and I

managed to get everything sorted

1:36:331:36:36

really quickly as well, the support

was excellent, all over the world,

1:36:361:36:40

dies at home, new sponsors, my

funding pages went mental,

1:36:401:36:45

incredible.

Looking forward to the

banks level later in the week.

Yes,

1:36:451:36:50

a couple of days off and then we get

going and the course was incredible

1:36:501:36:55

today, hopefully the bank slalom

will also be and it will be awesome.

1:36:551:36:59

Congratulations today and the best

of luck and to update you there have

1:36:591:37:03

been some curling going on and to

the British team have beaten Sweden

1:37:031:37:07

which means they will be back to

their winning ways and they have won

1:37:071:37:10

three out of their four matches here

so it is all looking good and we

1:37:101:37:14

will keep you updated on their

performance later on today.

Thank

1:37:141:37:17

you, Kate in Pyeongchang, good to

see their ParalympicsGB snowboarders

1:37:171:37:24

in action. Now let's get up-to-date

on the rest of the news.

1:37:241:37:27

Tottenham and England fans will be

waiting for the results of a scan

1:37:271:37:31

today on Harry Kane's ankle.

1:37:311:37:32

He was forced off during Spurs' 4-1

win over Bournemouth yesterday,

1:37:321:37:35

but they managed OK

without their top scorer,

1:37:351:37:38

Heung-Min Son finding the net twice

as Tottenham climbed to third

1:37:381:37:41

in the table.

1:37:411:37:41

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger

says his team need to get the fans

1:37:411:37:45

back on their side

after their recent poor form.

1:37:451:37:47

And the players did their bit

yesterday, beating Watford 3-0.

1:37:471:37:50

There were still plenty of empty

seats at The Emirates, though.

1:37:501:37:53

Quite a celebration there.

1:37:531:37:54

There was a cracking Old Firm derby

in the Scottish Premiership -

1:37:541:37:58

Josh Windass put Rangers ahead

at Ibrox after just three minutes.

1:37:581:38:01

It was 2-2 at half-time before

Celtic snatched victory,

1:38:011:38:03

thanks to Odsonne Edouard.

1:38:031:38:07

Wales moved up to second place

in the Six Nations table after 38-14

1:38:071:38:11

victory over Italy in Cardiff.

1:38:111:38:12

George North scored two

of their five tries,

1:38:121:38:14

securing the bonus win -

a great result for a much-changed

1:38:141:38:17

Wales side.

1:38:171:38:18

Not such good news for Wales' women

- they suffered a surprise 22-15

1:38:181:38:22

home defeat home

to bottom side Italy.

1:38:221:38:24

They got to within two points

of the Italians but they were undone

1:38:241:38:27

by a late try.

1:38:271:38:31

Scotland beat Ireland for the first

time in Women's Six Nations history.

1:38:311:38:34

Chloe Rollee ran practically

the entire length of the pitch

1:38:341:38:37

to score the second of the Scots two

tries, as they earned

1:38:371:38:41

a 15-12 victory.

1:38:411:38:46

There was a really disappointing

defeat for British number one

1:38:461:38:48

Kyle Edmund at the

Indian Wells Open.

1:38:481:38:50

It was his first match

since reaching the semifinals

1:38:501:38:53

of the Australian Open

and overtaking Andy Murray

1:38:531:38:55

in the rankings, but he was beaten

in straight sets by lucky loser

1:38:551:38:58

Dudi Sela of Israel,

who's the world number 97.

1:38:581:39:02

Serena Williams will play her sister

Venus tonight in the third

1:39:021:39:05

round at Indian Wells

as she continues her comeback

1:39:051:39:07

after the birth of her daughter.

1:39:071:39:11

Six months after having a baby, back

in action, and she has to take on

1:39:111:39:16

her sister. Always drama.

1:39:161:39:17

Now, this isn't something we usually

do on Breakfast because you're

1:39:171:39:20

probably eating right now,

but we're going to talk

1:39:201:39:23

about dog mess.

1:39:231:39:24

A campaign against dog poo has

started in a village in

1:39:241:39:30

Cambridgshire.

1:39:301:39:31

The idea is if you spot muck

on the floor, you upload

1:39:311:39:34

the location of it on to a map,

and it's hoped this will encourage

1:39:341:39:38

people to pick it up.

1:39:381:39:39

We've been asking if

the idea will catch on.

1:39:391:39:42

It's a good idea but I think it's

aimed at the wrong people,

1:39:421:39:45

people that don't pick

their dog faeces up.

1:39:451:39:51

It's not difficult, is it?

1:39:511:39:52

It's not difficult to pick

up your dog's mess.

1:39:521:39:55

I just don't understand

why people still don't,

1:39:551:39:57

and they obviously don't

by the amount I've seen

1:39:571:39:59

left here today.

1:39:591:40:04

A lot of places, they only have one

bin and it's not really enough.

1:40:041:40:12

We just want people picking it up.

1:40:121:40:14

Look after their dogs and be

responsible dog owners.

1:40:141:40:21

Being stuck doing it in and picking

up after yourself and putting it

1:40:211:40:24

in the bin.

1:40:241:40:28

Put it in the dog bings,

that's what we do.

1:40:281:40:31

I just find it is

really frustrating.

1:40:311:40:36

We always carry a bag and we alsays

pick up our own stuff but we noticed

1:40:361:40:40

just across there, there's a bin.

1:40:401:40:48

Thank you very much for all of your

comments. I know you clearly care

1:40:491:40:53

about this.

1:40:531:40:53

With us now is Amanda Carlin

in Wimblington, who came up

1:40:531:40:56

with the idea, and here in

the studio is Allison Ogden-Newton

1:40:561:40:59

from Keep Britain Tidy.

1:40:591:41:00

Morning both. Amanda and Molly, I

should say, we will introduce you as

1:41:001:41:05

well. We cannot with this idea, why

and exactly, explained to us people

1:41:051:41:12

are meant to do.

OK. Well, the

reason that we came up with the idea

1:41:121:41:18

is because we were discussing it on

Facebook on the Facebook page for

1:41:181:41:24

Bridlington, people do feel

aggrieved that not everybody picks

1:41:241:41:29

up after their pets. -- Wimblington.

We need to find a way to pick up on

1:41:291:41:38

this so we came up with the idea of

mapping and monitoring where the to

1:41:381:41:42

is left.

1:41:421:41:47

is left. And -- to people will let

us know where they have seed doodoos

1:41:471:41:56

left, we put it on faith or, some

people take photographs and give us

1:41:561:42:00

detailed information so cash can put

it on the map for us. -- Natasha. We

1:42:001:42:08

treat to the District Council, they

have a pick up initiative where they

1:42:081:42:12

are doing on the spot fines and £75,

and that pinpoints the areas that

1:42:121:42:17

are worst affected.

Either you have

not been doing it for long but is it

1:42:171:42:22

making a difference?

Well, Guess, on

Saturday, well, Friday, we had no

1:42:221:42:27

sightings at all. Saturday we had

one in the morning and one in the

1:42:271:42:32

afternoon but sadly, yesterday,

there were a lot of sightings. We

1:42:321:42:37

have to keep monitoring. Yeah. But

it is having an impact and it could

1:42:371:42:42

be, you know, the District Council

were not available to go and pick

1:42:421:42:47

up. I have to say it is not just the

District Council but do the picking

1:42:471:42:51

up, the responsible dog owners pick

up after other pets. The

1:42:511:43:00

up after other pets. The people of

the area are proud of their village

1:43:011:43:03

and rightly so, it is beautiful, Sir

as a responsible community we are

1:43:031:43:08

doing something about the problem.

Did you think things like this make

1:43:081:43:11

a difference, that the map scheme

and other schemes generally?

We

1:43:111:43:17

think it is brilliant, it is about

getting people involved and making

1:43:171:43:20

them think twice to the fact that

our collecting evidence and urging

1:43:201:43:24

people to think about what they are

doing because campaigns we have run,

1:43:241:43:30

it is all about getting people to

think about what they would do if

1:43:301:43:33

they were being watched. We find

that if people think that they

1:43:331:43:37

behave differently when they are

being watched than they do behave

1:43:371:43:41

differently and this is spot on, it

makes people who go out at night in

1:43:411:43:45

particular are not picking up that

actually, if someone was watching

1:43:451:43:48

them, they would pick up.

We talk

about this, it comes down to people

1:43:481:43:53

getting into contact to say it is a

selfishness issue, it is the issue

1:43:531:43:57

of hanging your dog to in aid bag

and living on a tree or whatever. --

1:43:571:44:02

old mess. -- are bag. It is

essentially just being nice to other

1:44:021:44:07

humans, isn't it, and picking up?

It

is not a nice, it is safe, dog mess

1:44:071:44:16

is a health method. They cannot keep

playground Faith because of dog mess

1:44:161:44:22

so it is important. But the

Forsayth. On the wiki got a message

1:44:221:44:29

from the great British spring clean

crew who've been picking up dog mess

1:44:291:44:33

bags out of bushes that do not

belong to their dogs. We have people

1:44:331:44:38

up and down the country picking up

after other people's dogs because

1:44:381:44:42

like the people in Cambridgeshire

they are proud of where they live

1:44:421:44:45

and they don't want to look at it.

Amanda, from what you've seen so

1:44:451:44:49

far, are there particular areas

which seemed to be problematic.

1:44:491:44:56

Well, we have had communication from

almost 50 different communities and

1:44:561:45:01

other local authorities asking for

help. Because they are also proud of

1:45:011:45:06

their community and they want to

deal with the problem. It is a

1:45:061:45:11

nationwide problem.

Sorry to

interrupt you, what I wanted to know

1:45:111:45:16

is with your map that you are doing,

can you see that there are areas

1:45:161:45:20

where there are issues?

1:45:201:45:27

There are some hotspots. People can

avoid them. That's one of the

1:45:271:45:34

reasons why we did the mapping, so

that people know were at safer and

1:45:341:45:39

not safe to walk. It's not fair on

mothers with pushchairs. Walking

1:45:391:45:46

their children to school. It's good

to them to know there has been a

1:45:461:45:50

sighting on that route, avoid it.

Are we winning the battle?

135

1:45:501:46:02

councils are using it. It is one of

the things we have achieved a

1:46:021:46:08

tipping point on.

1:46:081:46:14

tipping point on. You only need a

few dog owners going out twice a day

1:46:151:46:19

and you got yourself a sport. We

need to keep the pressure on and

1:46:191:46:23

keep the message out there to bag it

and bin it. Any bid will do. Not a

1:46:231:46:27

tree or a bush.

I went out without a

pre- bagged the other day but I did

1:46:271:46:35

use an elaborate belief system to

put said deposit in the bin. Happy

1:46:351:46:43

pages in that? I'm not sure it will

catch on. It took some time to

1:46:431:46:49

construct. Thank you both very much.

Is Molly Yorkshire terrier cross?

1:46:491:46:54

She is.

Thank you very much indeed.

1:46:541:47:02

Here's Matt with a look

at this morning's weather.

1:47:021:47:05

Some foul weather the parts of the

country today but certainly not in

1:47:101:47:15

the West of Scotland. This is the

view in Durham at the moment. Very

1:47:151:47:21

murky across parts of northern

England. Low pressure paying a big

1:47:211:47:27

playing a big part in the weather.

The tell-tale sign is the cloud is

1:47:271:47:32

circulating. A lot of dry weather to

come. Western Scotland has seen the

1:47:321:47:40

best of the sunshine. Much of the

time, it will be dry. Let us look at

1:47:401:47:47

the finer details. Some longer

spells of rain this morning. That

1:47:471:47:52

will break up a little bit into the

afternoon. The showers will be their

1:47:521:47:58

heaviest through parts of the

Midlands this afternoon. Maybe the

1:47:581:48:01

odd rumble of thunder. If you are

heading out, something waterproof is

1:48:011:48:06

advisable. Scotland and Northern

Ireland, by and large, in eastern

1:48:061:48:15

coast, temperatures double figures.

Tonight, still some outbreaks of

1:48:151:48:21

rain through the eastern half of the

country. Some clearer skies around

1:48:211:48:26

tonight. Temperatures will drop far

enough to touch of frost. Tuesday is

1:48:261:48:34

a bit of a weather window as far as

we are concerned. Low pressure to

1:48:341:48:39

the West coming in on Wednesday.

That is the area of low pressure. A

1:48:391:48:43

little Richard Pye pressure. Fewer

showers around. The rain will clear.

1:48:431:48:50

One to light drifting eastwards. But

the vast majority, predominantly

1:48:501:48:56

dry. Some sunny spells. Once you've

got to do that. It actually feels

1:48:561:49:03

pleasant enough. Temperatures in

most places, 9- 12 degrees.

1:49:031:49:09

Wednesday, a bright start. We will

see some sunshine. Plenty of cloud

1:49:091:49:14

in the West. Occasional rain. Strong

to gale force winds. Wednesday,

1:49:141:49:20

another mild day.

1:49:201:49:25

We've heard a lot about retailers

struggling in the last few weeks -

1:49:271:49:31

but Steph's here to tell us

about more news for the high street

1:49:311:49:34

street this morning.

1:49:341:49:35

There is research out today about

overall spending.

1:49:351:49:39

Some big high street names

like John Lewis have said sales

1:49:391:49:42

are falling, others like New Look

have closed stores, while Toys R Us

1:49:421:49:45

and Maplin have both gone

into administration.

1:49:451:49:47

We've also seen some

of the restaurant chains

1:49:471:49:49

like Prezzo, Byron Burger

and Jamie's Italian

1:49:491:49:51

run into difficulties.

1:49:511:49:52

Figures out today from Visa show

that overall consumer spending

1:49:521:49:55

is down.

1:49:551:50:00

Figures out today from Visa show

overall consumer spending is down.

1:50:001:50:03

It's not a massive surprise that

some people are struggling with

1:50:031:50:06

this. Clare Bailey is with me. What

is happening?

1:50:061:50:17

is happening? We've got issues

around consumer confidence since the

1:50:171:50:19

general election. With the talk of

the less than 400 Raid gauge to

1:50:191:50:24

Brexit, whatever that may look like,

the Bligh concerned as to what that

1:50:241:50:29

might look like. Jobs and security.

We have seen the retailers suffering

1:50:291:50:34

increased costs. We have had the

currency impact. Obviously they are

1:50:341:50:39

not making the same profits they

used to make on the products they

1:50:391:50:43

sell. Swallow cost and make money or

pass that extra cost on to consumers

1:50:431:50:52

which increases the price of the

product. It means we have less

1:50:521:50:55

available income. Coupled with the

fact the last three days of

1:50:551:51:00

February, half the country was under

snow. It has led to a considerable

1:51:001:51:04

drop in the expected spending. This

is coming at them from all angles.

1:51:041:51:10

An named a few retailers. Various

announcements because of what has

1:51:101:51:17

been happening. Are there any which

are doing well?

Doing well in the

1:51:171:51:23

context of the environment they are

trading, sustaining businesses,

1:51:231:51:26

keeping the customers happy. They

would be one that you would be

1:51:261:51:32

considering to do well. We are

seeing some really strong performers

1:51:321:51:35

from the on line retailers. I think

that's indicative of the fact that

1:51:351:51:41

consumers are much more comfortable

these days with the on line spend

1:51:411:51:45

and that has been detrimental to the

high street. Sales in the on line

1:51:451:51:51

arena, although overall down, they

are far less oppressed than those on

1:51:511:51:54

the high street which does post

problems are those retailers which

1:51:541:51:59

is why we are seeing the store

closures and what's most worrying

1:51:591:52:03

from my point of view is that up

until recently, the casual dining

1:52:031:52:08

industry was doing well as people

were switching spending from buying

1:52:081:52:12

stuff to having a social experience.

Even that sector is seeing the

1:52:121:52:18

impact of the consumer confidence.

There is a way to go yet. Cleverly

1:52:181:52:22

people will begin to see what is

coming after the final exit and they

1:52:221:52:27

will feel a lot more secure and that

should bring some buoyancy back into

1:52:271:52:32

the market.

Our economy is largely

driven by consumer spending. That is

1:52:321:52:39

it from me for now.

1:52:391:52:41

There's huge excitement this morning

as primary school children take part

1:52:411:52:44

in a treasure hunt to find books

by Shakespeare that have been hidden

1:52:441:52:48

right across the UK.

1:52:481:52:49

The idea is to introduce

works from the Bard

1:52:491:52:51

earlier

than at secondary school.

1:52:511:52:53

Breakfast's Tim Muffett is with some

children taking part this morning.

1:52:531:53:01

Good morning to you. We are

channelling our inner Bard this

1:53:011:53:06

morning for the launch of this

Shakespeare week, an event happening

1:53:061:53:09

right across the UK. 12,000 primary

schools in total will be taking

1:53:091:53:14

part. The idea is to get children as

young as six or seven rate

1:53:141:53:18

interested in Shakespeare. We are

Ian McMillan, the Bard of Barnsley,

1:53:181:53:24

reading one of his poems and

Jacqueline from the Shakespeare

1:53:241:53:28

birthplace trust. Why is this so

important?

The trust is passionate

1:53:281:53:36

about sharing Shakespeare with a

world in inspiring new generations

1:53:361:53:39

to share your stories so in 2014, we

launched it to get every primary

1:53:391:53:45

school child for an opportunity to

be introduced to Shakespeare. They

1:53:451:53:49

will then discover how accessible

and enjoyable and engaging it can

1:53:491:53:53

be.

Domain to write you? What you

know about Shakespeare?

He died when

1:53:531:54:03

he was 52. He got married at 18. He

was born in 1564.

You are also

1:54:031:54:12

knowledgeable already. Let's have a

chat with Tracy. Tells about this

1:54:121:54:17

treasure hunt.

People have signed up

for the Shakespeare treasure hunt

1:54:171:54:22

and the idea is the book by Marcy

Williams is put into the envelope

1:54:221:54:28

and send out into the community for

people to search for.

And you can

1:54:281:54:33

follow its progress. If you look on

Twitter, we will be tweeting some

1:54:331:54:39

ideas about where you might find the

bug. If you find it, you will need

1:54:391:54:43

to tweet and let us know where it

is. Not very many infant schools. We

1:54:431:54:51

felt it would be a lovely

opportunity for our children to

1:54:511:54:54

develop some really good reading

habits and find out a little bit

1:54:541:54:58

about Shakespeare.

1:54:581:55:03

about Shakespeare. Now going to

interrupt an at work. You've written

1:55:031:55:06

a special poem. Why are you backing

this?

Shakespeare is our national

1:55:061:55:12

poet. The way we think and talk and

form dramas in our everyday lives is

1:55:121:55:17

due to Shakespeare. Everything that

happens feels Shakespearean and

1:55:171:55:22

sometimes it gets forgotten. Often

there is a photograph of a chap with

1:55:221:55:27

a beard but he is a person whose

language ripples throughout our DNA.

1:55:271:55:32

And is it sometimes a bit too

detached from what young people are

1:55:321:55:36

learning at the moment?

He is, and

he is quite ancient, dead a long

1:55:361:55:43

time but the play is all about what

is happening to us now. We can see

1:55:431:55:48

Shakespearean things happening in

the news all the time, all over the

1:55:481:55:51

world. He very much as a person per

hour times.

You've written a special

1:55:511:55:57

poem. Let us have a little excerpt.

Everybody, the launch of Shakespeare

1:55:571:56:02

week, take it away.

What a noisy

place this island is. I won't block

1:56:021:56:11

my ears from the magic sound. Spells

and incantations boil and fears,

1:56:111:56:17

lightning bolts like snakes across

the ground. Prospero is my name, my

1:56:171:56:24

name is full of secret ways to make

the oceans dance. The life of

1:56:241:56:28

Prospero is never dull, I built a

universe with luck and charts. See

1:56:281:56:34

that boat out there?

I formed the

storm... Really enjoying that. We

1:56:341:56:40

should have more Shakespeare.

1:56:402:00:02

in half an hour.

2:00:022:00:03

Plenty more on our website

at the usual address.

2:00:032:00:06

Hello, this is Breakfast,

with Dan Walker and Louise Minchin.

2:00:082:00:11

The entertainer, Sir Ken Dodd,

has died at the age of 90.

2:00:112:00:15

# Happiness, happiness.

2:00:152:00:17

The Liverpudlian comic,

famous for his epic stand-up shows

2:00:172:00:20

and his tickling stick,

died in the home he was born in,

2:00:202:00:23

just days after marrying his

long term partner.

2:00:232:00:31

We shall have one or two glasses of

Tickle tonic, then go back to Knotty

2:00:312:00:39

Ash, up north, on Merseyside, and I

shall see the Diddy Men and I shall

2:00:392:00:43

give your regards to them.

2:00:432:00:45

Tributes have been

pouring in for the star.

2:00:452:00:46

We'll look back at Sir

Ken's life and work.

2:00:462:00:47

Good morning.

It's Monday the 12th of March.

2:00:592:01:03

Also this morning...

2:01:032:01:05

The Russian spy mystery -

Theresa May chairs a meeting

2:01:052:01:09

of her national security chiefs,

as 500 people in Salisbury are told

2:01:092:01:11

to wash their clothes

as a precaution.

2:01:112:01:15

Five people have died,

after a helicopter crashed

2:01:152:01:17

into the East River

in New York last night.

2:01:172:01:23

And a special report -

we're given unprecedented access

2:01:232:01:25

to a secure mental health hospital,

as we look at why admissions have

2:01:252:01:28

gone up by 40% in a decade.

2:01:282:01:36

Good morning.

2:01:372:01:38

A record number of people have

switched electricity

2:01:382:01:40

supplier in the last month -

I'll be finding out why.

2:01:402:01:42

Good morning.

2:01:422:01:44

In sport, a faulty start gate means

the snowboard cross is suspended

2:01:442:01:47

at the Winter Paralympics.

2:01:472:01:48

Britain's contenders did

manage to make their runs,

2:01:482:01:49

but all three have been knocked out.

2:01:492:01:53

And Matt has the weather.

2:01:532:01:56

Good morning. Scotland is the place

to be if you want something dry and

2:01:562:02:03

reasonably bright. Elsewhere,

outbreaks of rain, wet in parts of

2:02:032:02:09

northern England. While it is a mild

day, something chillier on the

2:02:092:02:15

horizon.

2:02:152:02:16

Sir Ken Dodd - the much

loved comedian - has

2:02:162:02:18

died at the age of 90.

2:02:182:02:21

Described by his publicist as "one

of the last Music Hall greats",

2:02:212:02:25

Sir Ken was known for his marathon

stage performances and the creation

2:02:252:02:28

of the Diddy Men and

the tickling stick.

2:02:282:02:30

The performer from Liverpool

had recently spent six weeks

2:02:302:02:32

in hospital with a chest infection.

2:02:322:02:36

On Friday, he married his partner

of 40 years, Anne Jones.

2:02:362:02:39

Caroline Davies looks

back at his life.

2:02:392:02:47

Tickling sticks and Diddy Men -

Ken Dodd was a variety performer

2:02:472:02:50

with a gift for the surreal.

2:02:502:02:53

What a brilliant day for going up

to Count Von Zeppelin and saying,

2:02:532:02:56

"You'll never sell

a sausage that size!"

2:02:562:02:59

And the love of a

catchphrase or three.

2:02:592:03:01

How tickled I am!

2:03:012:03:03

How tickled I am

by all this goodwill.

2:03:032:03:05

What about you, Missus?

Have you been tickled by goodwill?

2:03:052:03:09

# Knick-knocky, knick-knock,

knick-knocky knick-knack!

2:03:092:03:11

# Knick-knocky, knick-knock,

knicky-knacky-noo!

2:03:112:03:13

Proud of his Merseyside roots,

the coal merchant's son from

2:03:132:03:18

Knotty Ash became a chart-topping

singer, a television star,

2:03:182:03:20

and a ventriloquist.

2:03:202:03:22

Doddy!

2:03:222:03:23

Hi-ya, Doddy!

2:03:232:03:24

Although silly on stage,

Dodd was serious about his craft.

2:03:242:03:29

Freud said that a laugh is a sudden

explosion of psychic energy.

2:03:292:03:34

Of course, the trouble with Freud

was he never played second house

2:03:342:03:37

Friday night at Glasglow Empire.

2:03:372:03:40

He still lived in the home he grew

up in, and guarded his

2:03:402:03:43

private life carefully.

2:03:432:03:46

In 1989, that was shattered

when he faced charges

2:03:462:03:49

of massive tax evasion.

2:03:492:03:52

He had 20 offshore bank accounts,

and more than £300,000 hidden

2:03:522:03:55

around his house.

2:03:552:03:58

He was acquitted and

continued performing.

2:03:582:04:01

Last year, he was given a knighthood

in recognition of his charity

2:04:012:04:04

and comedy work.

2:04:042:04:07

We shall have one or two

glasses of tickle tonic,

2:04:072:04:10

and then we shall go

back to Knotty Ash up north,

2:04:102:04:13

Knotty Ash on Merseyside,

and I shall see the Diddy Men there,

2:04:132:04:16

so I'll give your regards to them.

2:04:162:04:19

Aged 90, Dodd was recently

hospitalised with a chest infection,

2:04:192:04:24

but he still wanted

to go back on stage.

2:04:242:04:26

I look forward to getting

back to doing my job -

2:04:262:04:30

the only job that I have ever had,

the only job that I know.

2:04:302:04:35

# Happiness, happiness.

2:04:352:04:37

After more than 60 years

of making others laugh,

2:04:372:04:39

it was performing to the British

public that Dodd said

2:04:392:04:42

gave him enormous happiness.

2:04:422:04:47

# Happiness!

2:04:472:04:53

Some of Ken Dodd's fans and former

colleagues have been paying tribute.

2:04:532:04:57

Comedian Dara O Briain commented

on how he had inspired him.

2:04:572:05:00

Poet Ian McMillan said:

2:05:202:05:21

"RIP

Ken Dodd - Shakespearean fool,

2:05:212:05:23

Music Hall turn, timeless clown.

2:05:232:05:24

The stage was his planet,

and as he explored it, the only

2:05:242:05:27

atmosphere he needed

was laughing gas."

2:05:272:05:30

And columist Grace Dent

made reference to one

2:05:302:05:31

of his well know jokes,

saying: "What a beautiful day.

2:05:312:05:34

What a beautiful day

for sticking a cucumber

2:05:342:05:35

through a letterbox and shouting

'Help, the Martians have landed'.

2:05:352:05:38

#KenDodd."

2:05:382:05:45

The National Security Council

is to look at the latest evidence

2:05:452:05:47

of the suspected poisoning

of a former Russian double

2:05:472:05:51

agent and his daughter.

2:05:512:05:53

An assessment will be made

on who might have carried out

2:05:532:05:56

the nerve agent attack.

2:05:562:05:57

Sergei and Yulia Skripal remain

critically ill in hospital.

2:05:572:06:01

Leila Nathoo's in Salisbury

for us this morning.

2:06:012:06:09

A week on, this continues to be a

developing story?

It does. There is

2:06:092:06:15

clearly some progress being made in

the investigation. Police now know

2:06:152:06:19

the nerve agent that was used to

attack Sergei and Yulia Skripal.

2:06:192:06:25

Police now know that traces of that

nerve agent were found at two

2:06:252:06:30

locations, the Zizzi restaurant and

a pub the to visit it on the Sunday

2:06:302:06:35

afternoon before the end of the up

collapsed on the bench behind me.

2:06:352:06:40

Police trying to piece together

exactly when and how the two were

2:06:402:06:44

exposed to the substance. They are

searching Sergei Skripal's house and

2:06:442:06:50

car. The military are assisting. We

saw some activity at the Mill Pub

2:06:502:06:58

last night, which we believe was a

decontamination exercise. The table

2:06:582:07:03

where the Skripals aid their lunch

was so contaminated it has been

2:07:032:07:10

destroyed. People who were eating at

the Zizzi restaurant and the Mill

2:07:102:07:16

Pub any time on Sunday are being

told to wash their clothes as a

2:07:162:07:20

precaution. There is anger and

confusion as to why it has taken so

2:07:202:07:24

long for them to be warned to do

this. Officials say there is no risk

2:07:242:07:29

and no need to be alarmed. This is

only a precaution. Today, Theresa

2:07:292:07:34

May will chair a meeting of national

Security Adviser 's. The Home

2:07:342:07:41

Secretary, Amber Rudd, has warned

not to jump to conclusions about who

2:07:412:07:47

was behind the attack, but Russian

involvement is being taken seriously

2:07:472:07:50

at the highest level of government.

Thank you.

2:07:502:07:52

A bitter row has broken out

at the top of the Labour Party,

2:07:522:07:56

after a shadow cabinet minister

claiming she's been removed

2:07:562:07:58

from her post against her will.

2:07:582:07:59

Debbie Abrahams was the spokeswoman

on Work and Pensions.

2:07:592:08:03

We can speak now to our political

correspondent, Ben Wright.

2:08:032:08:08

Good morning. What do you know?

This

erupted late last night. We have got

2:08:082:08:15

extraordinary finger-pointing now

between Debbie Abrahams and Jeremy

2:08:152:08:20

Corbyn's office. It seems that on

Friday, Debbie Abrahams met people

2:08:202:08:25

from Jeremy Corbyn's office to

discuss unemployment issue. We

2:08:252:08:30

understand that relates to an

accusation of bullying. Debbie

2:08:302:08:35

Abrahams herself vehemently denies

it. Late yesterday evening, the

2:08:352:08:40

Labour Party issued a statement

saying that Debbie Abrahams had

2:08:402:08:42

stood aside while this issue is

investigated. But almost immediately

2:08:422:08:46

she hit back with her own statement,

saying that she had not agreed to

2:08:462:08:51

stand aside and that the behaviour

of certain individuals in Jeremy

2:08:512:08:56

Corbyn's office was completely

unacceptable, intimidating,

2:08:562:08:59

unprofessional. She says it shows a

bullying culture of the worst kind,

2:08:592:09:04

and she's making her own complaint

to the Labour Party and the

2:09:042:09:08

Parliamentary authority. Quite

extraordinary bus stop between

2:09:082:09:11

Jeremy Corbyn's office and somebody

who has been a frontbencher and

2:09:112:09:15

close ally of Jeremy Corbyn since he

became leader.

2:09:152:09:19

Thank you.

2:09:192:09:20

Five people have died,

after the helicopter

2:09:202:09:22

they were travelling in,

crashed into the East River

2:09:222:09:24

in New York last night.

2:09:242:09:25

Police say the pilot

managed to free himself,

2:09:252:09:27

and was pulled out of

the water by rescuers.

2:09:272:09:29

He's now left hospital.

2:09:292:09:30

An investigation will be held

to determine the cause of the crash.

2:09:302:09:35

The former commander of the UK's

maritime forces says Britain's

2:09:352:09:38

ability to "fight and win

on the frontline" was being

2:09:382:09:42

affected by budget cuts.

2:09:422:09:43

Rear Admiral Alex Burton

said the UK is at risk

2:09:432:09:47

of losing its status

as a "credible military power".

2:09:472:09:51

He's the latest in a long line

of senior military figures to call

2:09:512:09:54

for more spending on defence.

2:09:542:09:55

The government said

spending is growing to meet

2:09:552:09:57

ever changing threats.

2:09:572:10:04

The former Liverpool footballer,

Jamie Carragher, has apologised,

2:10:042:10:06

after a video of him spitting

at a girl in a car from his own

2:10:062:10:10

vehicle was released.

2:10:102:10:10

It happened while he drove

back from the Liverpool

2:10:102:10:12

and Manchester United

match on Saturday.

2:10:122:10:14

On Twitter he said he had been

"goaded three or four times

2:10:142:10:17

while being filmed",

but he said there was "no

2:10:172:10:19

excuse" for what he did.

2:10:192:10:23

I believe he has apologised

personally to the family involved.

2:10:232:10:27

The annual Crufts dog show had to be

temporarily halted, after two

2:10:272:10:30

protesters stormed the venue.

2:10:302:10:31

As this year's winner,

a two and a half year old whippet

2:10:312:10:34

called Tease, made her way

to the podium, this happened.

2:10:342:10:40

Two demonstrators from the animal

rights group, Peta,

2:10:402:10:42

emerged from the audience.

2:10:422:10:45

They were quickly chased down

and subdued by security staff.

2:10:452:10:52

No animals or owners were harmed.

2:10:522:10:57

One of those strange live TV

moments. Difficult to know what to

2:10:572:11:02

do in a situation like that but

thankfully nobody was hurt.

2:11:022:11:05

You're watching Breakfast.

2:11:052:11:06

A week after a former intelligence

agent from Russia and his daughter

2:11:062:11:09

were attacked with a nerve agent

in Salisbury, hundreds of people

2:11:092:11:12

who were in the same pub

and restaurant as them have been

2:11:122:11:15

told to wash their clothes

and belongings as a precaution.

2:11:152:11:17

Police and forensic teams

are still out in force in a city,

2:11:172:11:20

still in shock at the real-life spy

drama which arrived on its streets.

2:11:202:11:28

Police are trying to identify a

substance which caused a former

2:11:302:11:34

Russian agent who spied for Britain

to collapse in Salisbury.

Has been a

2:11:342:11:39

weird week. Each day the news is

unfolding.

I've heard some of the

2:11:392:11:45

locals say they are frustrated at

the fact they are not being told the

2:11:452:11:48

truth and there are a lot of

different stories.

I've been more

2:11:482:11:52

worried as the week has gone on.

Think it's quite frightening that

2:11:522:12:00

something like this can happen.

What's amazing is that we support

2:12:002:12:03

services have been available.

Traces

of a nerve agent used to attack a

2:12:032:12:09

former Russian spy and his daughter

in Salisbury have been found in the

2:12:092:12:13

Italian restaurant where they had

eaten.

The fact it has happened does

2:12:132:12:17

not worry me a scrap. We have lived

through wars, we know about it.

It

2:12:172:12:23

has been a confusing time but we can

now feel we are ready to move

2:12:232:12:26

forward and hopefully this has

brought us all together.

2:12:262:12:29

The Government's National Security

Council meets today,

2:12:292:12:31

to discuss what happened,

and Britain's response to it.

2:12:312:12:33

In a moment, we'll talk to the MP

for Salisbury, John Glen.

2:12:332:12:36

But first, we can speak to local

journalist, Rebecca Hudson.

2:12:362:12:44

Rebecca, what is the reaction today

from locals? A week on from this

2:12:482:12:53

news, it's still very much the big

talking point?

It is still

2:12:532:12:58

definitely what everybody is talking

definitely what everybody is talking

2:12:582:12:59

about in Salisbury. We have never

seen anything like this happen here

2:12:592:13:05

before. People are carrying on with

their lives. People are going to

2:13:052:13:08

school, they are going to work. It

is not stopping them from going

2:13:082:13:12

about their normal business as

usual. But it is still a huge

2:13:122:13:16

interest point.

We spoke to a

toxicologist and he was explaining

2:13:162:13:20

why it has taken so long to get

details of exactly what the nerve

2:13:202:13:24

agent is. From a local perspective,

how do people feel the investigation

2:13:242:13:28

has been handled?

I think people are

starting to feel a bit frustrated

2:13:282:13:36

now after Public Health England

advice came out yesterday. There was

2:13:362:13:40

a lot of frustration as to why

people had not been given

2:13:402:13:43

information about taking precautions

sooner, especially given that we

2:13:432:13:46

have known since Wednesday it was a

nerve agent. I think people may be

2:13:462:13:52

thought they could have been told at

an earlier point and that would have

2:13:522:13:55

made them feel more secure.

What has

been like in your office? I would

2:13:552:14:01

imagine the newsroom has never been

so busy?

It has never been so busy.

2:14:012:14:06

It is a small team, so we have all

been manic working around the clock

2:14:062:14:11

trying to cover it. It has been a

real privilege to work on such a big

2:14:112:14:15

story as the local paper.

Thank you for your time.

2:14:152:14:17

John Glen is the MP for Salisbury,

and joins us from our

2:14:172:14:20

Westminster studio.

2:14:202:14:21

Good morning. Let's pick up one of

those points. I will your

2:14:212:14:29

constituents not given this advice

sooner?

While they knew it was a

2:14:292:14:33

nerve agent, they didn't know

precisely what it was. When they did

2:14:332:14:37

know, they thought as a precaution,

as a belt and braces approach, that

2:14:372:14:41

advice would be appropriate to give

out. In an ideal world it would've

2:14:412:14:45

been nice if we had known what was

earlier. But obviously it is a

2:14:452:14:49

complex investigation and they did

it as quickly as they could.

Are you

2:14:492:14:53

convinced your constituents are

essentially safe?

I'm absolutely

2:14:532:14:59

convinced. I spoke to the Chief

Medical Officer for England last

2:14:592:15:03

night. I am absolutely reassured

that this is a belt and braces

2:15:032:15:07

measure and people should be

completely confident. The advice

2:15:072:15:12

given is correct and there is no

serious risk at all to the public.

2:15:122:15:22

Can you give me an idea of the scope

of the investigation and the impact

2:15:222:15:26

it's having?

There are seven shops

closed, a couple of venues including

2:15:262:15:35

Zizzi restaurant which is closed

while they are investigated and the

2:15:352:15:41

sites are isolated which Sergei

Skripal on his daughter visited. The

2:15:412:15:49

vast majority of people are keeping

calm and carrying on and we hope for

2:15:492:15:55

a swift resolution to this

investigation is we can work out

2:15:552:16:00

what it was, where it came from, and

then the Government can take

2:16:002:16:02

appropriate action.

We are looking

at pictures now of the kind of

2:16:022:16:06

investigation going on and we have

seen people in protective suits. Has

2:16:062:16:10

it been a scary time for some

residents?

Of course, it is

2:16:102:16:17

bewildering, people didn't

anticipate this, this time last

2:16:172:16:20

week, and I don't deny

2:16:202:16:30

week, and I don't deny these are

unusual times in Salisbury but I

2:16:302:16:31

feel we should get these things in

proportion. Whilst it is unusual, it

2:16:312:16:34

is an international incident and

people are keen to get to the bottom

2:16:342:16:37

of it. The vast majority of people

take it in their stride, Salisbury

2:16:372:16:39

is open for business and will

continue to do so.

Beginner Sergei

2:16:392:16:42

Skripal was living in Salisbury? Two

no, I didn't. I know he's on the

2:16:422:16:49

electoral roll and has owned the

property for the last seven years

2:16:492:16:52

but didn't know him personally.

Would you like to have known him?

I

2:16:522:16:59

don't mind. He's had passed, lots of

people have had passed. Salisbury is

2:16:592:17:04

a wonderful place and I'm not

surprised he chose to live in

2:17:042:17:08

Salisbury.

We know Theresa May is

meeting various people including

2:17:082:17:12

national security later. If Russia

were found to be to blame, what

2:17:122:17:17

action would you like to be taken?

I

would want very action taken. If

2:17:172:17:29

this has been state sanctioned

action, then it is outrageous. We

2:17:292:17:34

cannot have silent assassins walking

round our country, poisoning

2:17:342:17:38

individuals who have every right to

go about their business without

2:17:382:17:44

fear. So I would expect action to be

taken as a privy to the outcome of

2:17:442:17:51

these investigations yet or to

understand what lies behind it, it

2:17:512:17:55

is not appropriate for me to define

what those actions should be. But

2:17:552:17:59

they need to be strong,

proportionate, and give a strong

2:17:592:18:03

deterrent to those behind it.

John

Glenn, thank you for your time. If

2:18:032:18:12

you are out and about on Mother's

Day yesterday, you would notice it

2:18:122:18:16

was really mild. Matt is here with a

look ahead.

2:18:162:18:25

Yes, another mild day to come today

and across many parts of the

2:18:252:18:30

country, but today that the best of

the driest weather western Scotland

2:18:302:18:34

is the place to be. A different sort

of view at the window in Bridlington

2:18:342:18:39

at the moment, you are across

England, Wales and to a certain

2:18:392:18:45

degree Northern Ireland, there is

some wet weather and all linked to

2:18:452:18:51

this revolving of the cloud

anticlockwise. Scotland largely dry,

2:18:512:19:00

Northern Ireland sunny spells with

some showers to the south. Let's

2:19:002:19:04

focus on England and Wales that this

is where the wet weather will be.

2:19:042:19:08

Persistent rain in northern England

which will turn shall read later.

2:19:082:19:14

Scattered showers, fairly slow

moving, then this afternoon they

2:19:142:19:16

could become heavy and thundery.

Breezy in the south-west of the

2:19:162:19:22

country, where showers will push

through smartly. Some showers in

2:19:222:19:27

Northern Ireland, still staying

largely dry in Scotland particularly

2:19:272:19:30

to the west. A rather cool breeze

coming off the North Sea,

2:19:302:19:36

temperatures at 11 or 12 Celsius.

Tonight we still have some rain

2:19:362:19:40

across southern England. Some

isolated showers dotted around

2:19:402:19:49

elsewhere, and a cold night then has

just gone with a greater chance of

2:19:492:19:54

frost, missed or fog tomorrow

morning. This editor of pressure

2:19:542:20:00

pushing in

2:20:002:20:07

pushing in on Tuesday -- this area

of pressure. Some showers drifting

2:20:072:20:12

eastwards and southwards during the

day but most places avoiding them,

2:20:122:20:16

spending the bulk if not all of the

day dry. For England and Wales, a

2:20:162:20:22

brighter day tomorrow compared with

today. Temperatures in Glasgow up to

2:20:222:20:26

11 degrees. Into Wednesday, the

brightest weather in the eastern

2:20:262:20:32

half of the country. Lots of cloud

in the west, strengthening winds

2:20:322:20:37

touching gale force at times, and we

finished the day in Northern

2:20:372:20:41

Ireland, Western Wales and Cornwall

with some longer spells of rain. It

2:20:412:20:46

could be quite what he had an

overall the week should be fairly

2:20:462:20:48

mild but things will change towards

the end of the week when we could

2:20:482:20:52

see things turn colder by the

2:20:522:20:54

see things turn colder by the

weekend.

2:20:542:20:54

the end of the week when we could

see things turn colder by the

2:20:542:20:57

weekend.

That is in Cornwall, where they know

2:20:572:20:59

how to have their scones with jam

and cream on top, importantly.

2:20:592:21:05

We will just have to disagree.

It is our first big fall out!

2:21:052:21:20

It is our first big fall out!

Later

there are scones in the office.

I

2:21:202:21:25

want to see your technique.

I'm just

happy about how you pronounce it.

2:21:252:21:36

We're talking about the energy

industry and how people don't switch

2:21:362:21:41

but now more people are.

Yes, how

often have I talked about people

2:21:412:21:46

switching and how you could save

money but there is research out

2:21:462:21:50

today from energy UK for instance

providers, saying that more people

2:21:502:21:55

than ever last month switched

electricity suppliers so that is up

2:21:552:22:00

6% compared with February last year

but it was a record number, 660,000

2:22:002:22:06

people switched supplier last month.

That's around 24,000 people per day

2:22:062:22:11

and that is a record month for them.

It just shows things are changing

2:22:112:22:16

now, and they say it's partly due to

the energy switch guarantee which is

2:22:162:22:21

a voluntary commitment from

providers to make it much easier.

2:22:212:22:25

Some are saying it's not as

2:22:252:22:36

easy as you think I'm some saying I

wish I had switched ages ago, and

2:22:372:22:40

saving about £20 per month.

I think

a little bit of it is down to the

2:22:402:22:44

Steph factor.

Just talking about it.

People listen to you, Steph.

2:22:442:22:57

You might have put a little bird

food out this morning to see them

2:22:572:23:00

through these chilly days,

but did you know you could be doing

2:23:002:23:03

more harm than good?

2:23:032:23:04

A study by the Zoological Society

of London and the British Trust

2:23:042:23:07

for Ornithology found garden feeders

can put wildlife

2:23:072:23:09

at risk of diseases.

2:23:092:23:10

Joining us now to tell us who how

is Andrew Cunningham,

2:23:102:23:13

who co-authored the report.

2:23:132:23:14

Thank you for coming on this

morning. I was going to show, I will

2:23:142:23:16

show later on, a lovely picture from

one of the newspapers today touching

2:23:162:23:19

on the subject. Explain first of all

my might garden feeders be putting

2:23:192:23:24

birds at risk?

This is a project

that's been running for about 25

2:23:242:23:30

years and has involved members of

the public reporting to us at the

2:23:302:23:35

Zoological Society of London when

they have been finding sick or dead

2:23:352:23:39

birds in their gardens. What we

found is that there are three main

2:23:392:23:47

diseases that we focused on in this

report that have changed in their

2:23:472:23:52

instance or prevalence and their

impact on birds over the last 25

2:23:522:23:56

years. The main finding really is

that with garden bird feeders, we

2:23:562:24:05

bring lots of garden birds together

from different species, feeding at

2:24:052:24:10

the same place over Andover, day

after day and they are congregating

2:24:102:24:15

together, coming into close contact

together, there's contamination of

2:24:152:24:20

food with droppings and so on, and

this can lead to the spread of

2:24:202:24:25

diseases. We are saying to people

don't stop feeding birds, feeding

2:24:252:24:30

birds is important. We have changed

our environment so garden feeding

2:24:302:24:36

has become an important part of

nutrition for these birds.

OK, and

2:24:362:24:42

in terms of which birds it's

affecting, was the greenfinch

2:24:422:24:48

particularly hit by this?

That's

right, a disease first emerged in

2:24:482:24:55

2005, previously known to be

widespread in pigeons where it often

2:24:552:24:58

doesn't cause any harm at all, but

with pigeons coming into close

2:24:582:25:04

contact with birds like greenfinch,

we think the disease have the

2:25:042:25:11

opportunity to spill over into

greenfinches. We have lost two

2:25:112:25:16

thirds of our greenfinch breeding

population in our UK, these birds

2:25:162:25:19

are getting sick and dying. You may

see them fluffed up, Citibank

2:25:192:25:25

feeders with food and saliva around

their mouth -- sitting around

2:25:252:25:32

feeders. This is now sweeping into

Eastern Europe.

Louise has a bird

2:25:322:25:40

feeder in her back garden, many

people love feeding the birds. What

2:25:402:25:46

should we be doing then? Moving them

around the garden? Watching them

2:25:462:25:52

regularly?

Just as you wouldn't want

to be eating off the same plate

2:25:522:25:59

every day without it being washed,

bird feeders need to be clean and

2:25:592:26:04

hygienic. Only put out enough food

that the birds will eat in a couple

2:26:042:26:09

of days so the food doesn't get

stale and contaminated with

2:26:092:26:13

droppings. Clean the feeders each

time you replenish them so once or

2:26:132:26:21

twice a week, in a bucket with soapy

water. Don't bring them into the

2:26:212:26:27

house, there are some diseases that

birds carry very rarely that can

2:26:272:26:31

cause diseases in people. Wash them,

drive them, maybe once or twice a

2:26:312:26:38

week, then move the feeders around

the garden if you can. It's easier

2:26:382:26:43

to do that with bird feeders than

tables, but tables can also be

2:26:432:26:49

washed and cleaned.

I have learned

so much.

That is a survey over 25

2:26:492:26:56

years so a lot of research has gone

into that.

It's outside where I have

2:26:562:27:02

my breakfast, I can see the birds

but now I'm going to have to move it

2:27:022:27:06

around.

2:27:062:30:23

I'm back with the latest

from the BBC London

2:30:232:30:25

newsroom in half an hour.

2:30:252:30:26

Plenty more on our website

at the usual address.

2:30:262:30:28

Now, though, it's back

to Lousie and Dan -

2:30:282:30:30

bye for now.

2:30:302:30:38

Hello, a very good morning.

2:30:432:30:45

The comedian Sir Ken Dodd has

died at the age of 90.

2:30:452:30:48

#

Happiness, happiness,

the greatest gift that I possess...

2:30:482:30:50

Described by his publicist as "one

of the last music hall greats,"

2:30:502:30:53

Sir Ken was known for his marathon

stage performances and the creation

2:30:532:30:55

of the 'Diddy Men' and

the 'tickling stick'.

2:30:552:30:57

The Liverpool-based perfomer had

recently been treated in hospital

2:30:572:31:00

for a chest infection.

2:31:002:31:05

Some of Ken Dodd's fans and former

colleagues have been paying tribute.

2:31:052:31:12

And an in joke on. -- many of you

sending in jokes as well.

2:31:122:31:20

Actor Paul Chan said, "In the late

70's he came to my mum's chippy

2:31:202:31:23

and ordered fish 'n' chips.

2:31:232:31:24

He left and sat in his Rolls Royce,

parked outside, eating them.

2:31:242:31:27

Then he came back in to ask

for the bin and drove off.

2:31:272:31:30

My mum didn't know who he was.

2:31:302:31:32

That's my Ken Dodd story.

RIP Ken."

2:31:322:31:34

Radio presenter Danny Wallace made

a quip about the length

2:31:342:31:36

of his shows,

saying...

2:31:362:31:37

"Godspeed Doddy.

2:31:372:31:38

90 years old.

He was supposed to go

2:31:382:31:40

when he was 80, but they couldn't

get him off stage.

2:31:402:31:43

#KenDodd"

2:31:432:31:44

Actor Julian Richings wrote

a touching tribute "The lights

2:31:442:31:46

are out in Knotty Ash.

2:31:462:31:47

Born and died in the same house.

Ken Dodd.

2:31:472:31:49

Music hall great, entertainment

legend, Liverpool pride."

2:31:492:31:55

One of our BBC cameramen who did

Saddam interview with him many years

2:31:552:31:58

ago said, he put something in this

pocket, tapped on the lapel and

2:31:582:32:03

said, have a drink on me. He looked

and it was a tea bag.

2:32:032:32:07

LAUGHTER

Brilliant! Onto the news this

2:32:072:32:12

morning...

2:32:122:32:14

A bitter row has broken out

at the top of the Labour party,

2:32:142:32:17

with a Shadow Cabinet minister

being removed from her post,

2:32:172:32:20

apparently against her will.

2:32:202:32:21

The Labour Party says

Debbie Abrahams stepped down

2:32:212:32:22

as the spokeswoman on work

and pensions, while what is

2:32:222:32:25

described as an 'employment

issue' is investigated.

2:32:252:32:27

But Mrs Abrahams claims she's

the victim of a bullying

2:32:272:32:29

culture in the party.

2:32:292:32:30

Five people have died

after the helicopter

2:32:302:32:32

they were travelling

in crashed into the East River

2:32:322:32:34

in New York last night.

2:32:342:32:35

Police say the pilot managed to free

himself, and was pulled out

2:32:352:32:38

of the water by rescuers.

2:32:382:32:39

He's now left hospital.

2:32:392:32:40

An investigation will

be held to determine

2:32:402:32:42

the cause of the crash.

2:32:422:32:48

The commander of the UK's maritime

forces says Britain's ability

2:32:482:32:50

to "fight and win on the frontline"

was being affected by budget cuts.

2:32:502:32:54

Rear Admiral Alex Burton said the UK

is at risk of losing its status

2:32:542:32:57

as a "credible military power".

2:32:572:32:58

He's the latest in a long line

of senior military figures to call

2:32:582:33:01

for more spending on defence.

2:33:012:33:02

The government said

spending is growing to meet

2:33:022:33:04

ever changing threats.

2:33:042:33:09

A new survey suggests almost two

thirds of doctors in some parts

2:33:092:33:12

of the UK feel patient safety has

deteriorated over the past year.

2:33:122:33:15

The report by the Royal College

of Physicians found that growing

2:33:152:33:18

pressures on NHS staff

have led to concerns

2:33:182:33:20

about patient care.

2:33:202:33:21

The Government says it's absolutely

committed to making the NHS

2:33:212:33:23

the safest healthcare

system in the world.

2:33:232:33:31

I think it's official. We have had a

fallout. I genuinely think you're

2:33:342:33:39

wrong, and you can't see the light!

We are talking about scones.

2:33:392:33:44

When you're eating scones

with cream and jam, do

2:33:442:33:46

you put the jam on first,

or the cream?

2:33:462:33:49

We are aware there is other news

around today. Of course!

2:33:492:33:55

But a National Trust property

in CornwallL has apologised

2:33:552:33:57

for advertising its cream teas

with the jam on top of the cream,

2:33:572:34:00

because it's a Devon tradition.

2:34:002:34:01

And it also happens to be right. It

just looks wrong! Louise, you do not

2:34:012:34:08

build a house with Ruth first.

2:34:082:34:15

-- Louise, you do not build

a house with a roof first.

2:34:152:34:17

Here's the offending advert,

from Lanhydrock National Trust,

2:34:172:34:19

showing off its cream teas

for Mothering Sunday -

2:34:192:34:22

and as you can clearly see,

the cream is on the scone first,

2:34:222:34:25

with the jam on top.

2:34:252:34:26

Team got while!

LAUGHTER

2:34:262:34:27

This is how it should be.

2:34:272:34:28

But the photo caused outrage amongst

the Cornish residents who say

2:34:282:34:31

placing jam on first

was all about identity -

2:34:312:34:33

as you can see here.

2:34:332:34:36

The National Trust property

said its staff would now

2:34:362:34:39

wear these badges -

Hashtag Jam First -

2:34:392:34:40

and reassured customers

that their mothers were safe

2:34:402:34:42

in its tearoom.

2:34:422:34:43

We have been discussing it all

morning and we have genuinely fallen

2:34:432:34:46

out. Well, we are still friends... I

just think you cannot see the truth

2:34:462:34:49

here. Can't see the jam for the

trees? Yes. Look at this. An

2:34:492:34:56

absolute rare beauty, Jamon Brown,

to help with the construction, and

2:34:562:34:59

the cream sits atop the jam in

beautiful fashion. But look at the

2:34:592:35:05

beautiful sculpture nine -- the jam

on top. Look at the beautiful

2:35:052:35:13

sculpture on mine. Be brutally

honest with our viewers. I was

2:35:132:35:18

talking about the poor nature of

your construction. What happened

2:35:182:35:20

when you were a building that scone?

Well, I don't think that is

2:35:202:35:26

relevant. Significant drop edge. All

over the shop, the jam.

Well, in all

2:35:262:35:36

All over the shop, the jam.

2:35:362:35:37

my years of eating cream first, that

has never happened.

That is going

2:35:372:35:42

absolutely nowhere! Solid as a rock.

Look at that. Saved it. Right, I'm

2:35:422:35:49

going to enjoy

2:35:492:35:50

this well you give us the sport.

The

foundations of your friendship have

2:35:502:35:56

been rocked this morning.

They

genuinely have. You've got an early!

2:35:562:36:05

Coming up on Breakfast this morning:

2:36:052:36:06

Singer and guitarist Mark Chadwick

from the Levellers will join us

2:36:062:36:09

to talk about everything

from politics to

2:36:092:36:11

recording at Abbey Road.

2:36:112:36:12

And it didn't take long

for Paralympics GB to get

2:36:122:36:14

us on the medal table.

2:36:142:36:15

We'll catch up with our reporter

in Pyeongchang to find out

2:36:152:36:18

how our athletes are doing.

2:36:182:36:21

We'll also speak to a woman

who walked 3,700 miles around

2:36:212:36:24

Wales following treatment

for ovarian cancer.

2:36:242:36:25

That's just before

nine this morning.

2:36:252:36:27

All that still to come, but first

let's get the sport with Kat.

2:36:272:36:35

She's written a brilliant book and I

just want to say thanks to all those

2:36:362:36:41

brilliant people supporting the

against the very very biased survey

2:36:412:36:44

that Dan has done about this. He may

have one might the survey but I know

2:36:442:36:48

many of you support me in having

cream first. Most importantly, Kat,

2:36:482:36:55

it is right.

I will just have it

however it comes you could prepare

2:36:552:37:00

me one now while I do the sport.

We

will make you the judge.

I'm not

2:37:002:37:07

being the judge! Oh, no. There has

been a spillage in the studio, and

2:37:072:37:17

I'm afraid it's Louise.

This is why,

Louise, we go with jam first!

I

2:37:172:37:30

caught the cream, OK.

OK, not going

to plan for the snowboarders in

2:37:302:37:34

Pyeongchang. Let's ask Kate what is

going on. Have we seen any

2:37:342:37:38

snowboarding this morning?

Yes, you

will be pleased to know the

2:37:382:37:42

snowboarding has gone ahead, but it

was disrupted before it even began,

2:37:422:37:47

mainly due to the increased

temperatures here. About 18 degrees,

2:37:472:37:52

midday today, so the whole event got

moved forward and the athletes had

2:37:522:37:55

to content with that. Once it

2:37:552:38:08

started, there were issues with the

starting gate. For those of you not

2:38:092:38:12

familiar, the athletes push off out

of the start gate, and at the early

2:38:122:38:15

stage of the event they were not

dropping and athletes were literally

2:38:152:38:18

fallen over the top of them, putting

themselves in quite a difficult

2:38:182:38:20

situation. They tried to fix the

problem but it wasn't working so

2:38:202:38:22

instead they replaced the cakes with

a piece of rope. This is the

2:38:222:38:25

Paralympic Games, snowboarding for

the first time -- they replaced the

2:38:252:38:29

gates. All sorts of problems and

outfits taken back to the top to

2:38:292:38:32

start again but nevertheless the

events did take place. Great Britain

2:38:322:38:35

had three athletes in action, one of

those being the flag bearer, the big

2:38:352:38:42

medal hope for these games, and when

I caught up with him after the event

2:38:422:38:48

he did say this whole thing

unfolding really did affect his

2:38:482:38:56

performance, Owen Pick.

There were

talk of cancelling and doing it

2:38:562:39:00

other day and we were like, come on,

guys, this is the Paralympics. We

2:39:002:39:04

want to race. It was really tough

and it is a shame today has gone the

2:39:042:39:08

way it has gone in general because

we wanted to put on a good show.

So

2:39:082:39:16

unfortunately no medals for Great

Britain and three athletes will go

2:39:162:39:20

again in the bank slalom, but there

has been success for Great Britain

2:39:202:39:23

at the ice rink. They were up

against Sweden and Finland and they

2:39:232:39:28

comfortably won that match 6-1, so

that is three out of four they have

2:39:282:39:33

won here and vehicle later on today

against the Paralympic champions,

2:39:332:39:36

Canada, so that'll be a very tough

event but they will hope to continue

2:39:362:39:40

their winning form and we will keep

you updated here from Pyeongchang.

2:39:402:39:45

For now, thank you very much. The

football.

2:39:452:39:49

Tottenham and England fans will be

waiting for the results of a scan

2:39:492:39:52

today on Harry Kane's ankle.

2:39:522:39:53

He was forced off during Spurs' 4-1

win over Bournemouth yesterday -

2:39:532:39:56

but they managed ok

without their top scorer,

2:39:562:39:58

Heung-Min Son finding the net twice

as Tottenham climbed to third

2:39:582:40:00

in the table.

2:40:002:40:06

A cracking old firm derby in

Glasgow. 2-0 at half-time before

2:40:062:40:13

Celtics gnashed -- Celtic snatched

victory thanks to Odsonne Edouard.

2:40:132:40:30

Wales moved up to second place

in the Six Nations table after 38-14

2:40:302:40:34

victory over Italy in Cardiff.

2:40:342:40:39

George North scored two of their

five tries, securing the bonus win,

2:40:392:40:43

a great result for the much changed

Wales side. You weren't listening to

2:40:432:40:47

me, with those scones! I think Dan

has prepared a subversive attempt to

2:40:472:40:55

convert me to his one, look at the

amount of cream on there! OK.

2:40:552:41:12

We've been hearing tributes this

morning to Sir Ken Dodd who's

2:41:152:41:17

died at the age of 90.

2:41:172:41:19

He was the creator of the 'Diddy

Men' and the 'tickling stick'.

2:41:192:41:24

The performer, who was from

Liverpool, had spent six weeks

2:41:242:41:25

in hospital with a chest infection.

2:41:252:41:27

Joining us now on the line

is broadcaster Ted Robbins.

2:41:272:41:29

Thank you for joining us. Would you

share your memories of him?

I grew

2:41:292:41:35

up at knotty Ash, actually, and

people didn't think it really

2:41:352:41:41

existed, but his dad was coal

merchant, you would see him around

2:41:412:41:46

town in Liverpool, a great man,

always had time

2:41:462:41:50

town in Liverpool, a great man,

always had time for people. Very

2:41:502:41:52

educated, well read, he knew about

comedy, the history of comedy, going

2:41:522:41:58

way back. Musical variety. He was

the last of a generation, really. Go

2:41:582:42:08

on.

An interesting point you make,

Ted. I remember listening to an

2:42:082:42:12

interview with him a few years ago

and, yes, he was a great joke

2:42:122:42:17

teller, but he enjoyed the

philosophy of comedy and the reasons

2:42:172:42:20

why things make us laugh.

Absolutely, he had a theory that was

2:42:202:42:26

his and no doubt many people heard

it but he said there was a spectrum

2:42:262:42:30

of colour for laughter. And when I

talk about him I always go into the

2:42:302:42:34

vernacular, excuse me. He said, can

you make a living out of this?

2:42:342:42:40

LAUGHTER

He said the spectrum of colour was

2:42:402:42:42

the purest crystal white. Any day

outside children's playground, just

2:42:422:42:50

laughing at the sheer joy of being

alive, then the yellow of dark

2:42:502:42:55

humour and satire, then going into

sarcasm and the dark side of humour

2:42:552:42:58

which was a purple grey for him. He

had these wonderful theories. He

2:42:582:43:02

also would

2:43:022:43:07

also would quote Plato, and would go

on to say it was pretty clever for

2:43:082:43:12

Mugello Walt Disney dog.

LAUGHTER

2:43:122:43:15

He said

life was a wheel and as it

spun it became twisted, so he

2:43:152:43:20

described life as a twisted wheel.

You would see him around Liverpool

2:43:202:43:25

and the pubs at lunchtime, his hair

down, and often he was quiet. He

2:43:252:43:28

would listen. If you were discussing

something he found interesting he

2:43:282:43:34

would engage with the person he was

talking to. And he wrote, and don't

2:43:342:43:39

forget he was a polymath, a very

clever budget, by Jove, and he could

2:43:392:43:46

sing, let's not forget, you know, he

had massive hits as a singer in the

2:43:462:43:51

60s and early 70s. Beautiful voice.

He was a ventriloquist. Does anyone

2:43:512:43:57

remember that? With one

2:43:572:44:06

remember that? With one of the Diddy

Men? One of the first things he did,

2:44:062:44:08

sent away half a crown and learned

to be a ventriloquist. And he would

2:44:082:44:12

say, now, then, young man, would you

like a big bottle of bubbly brown

2:44:122:44:17

beer? And his puppet would say, no,

Sandy!

2:44:172:44:24

LAUGHTER

Thank you so much for sharing those

2:44:242:44:27

memories, Ted Robbins.

90 years, God

bless him.

A lovely thing to say,

2:44:272:44:33

talking about Sir Ken Dodd. In the

1960s I think this statistic

2:44:332:44:40

staggering, his son was the third

highest selling song from the 60s

2:44:402:44:44

and only two songs by the Beatles

managed to beat him. Amazing. We are

2:44:442:44:49

joined by Carol Vorderman. He was

one of your childhood heroes?

He

2:44:492:44:55

absolutely was. I grew up in an

annex of Liverpool, really, and he

2:44:552:45:01

was massive,

2:45:012:45:04

annex of Liverpool, really, and he

was massive, Ken Dodd, so I was born

2:45:042:45:06

in 1960 and I was very proud to be a

Diddy Man in the carnivore, 1965

2:45:062:45:14

1966. But, yeah, -- in the Carnival.

I think those of us in our 50s and

2:45:142:45:23

60s have lost today part of our

childhood, to be honest, because he

2:45:232:45:28

was so prevalent. He listens to the

songs, sang them at home. He was

2:45:282:45:33

like uncle we all wanted. And

obviously he always made us laugh. I

2:45:332:45:37

was very lucky in the work I have

done that I met him so many times

2:45:372:45:41

over the years. He was always kind

of kindly outrageous, but never

2:45:412:45:47

stopped, you know. If you went to a

gig, and he always used to say, send

2:45:472:45:54

the court strivers home, because he

would be going for six hours. He

2:45:542:45:58

would just keep on and on -- send

home the coach drivers. The audience

2:45:582:46:08

would be exhausted, never mind him!

I think you left your message,

2:46:082:46:12

actually. People just have a look at

that...

2:46:122:46:19

You met your childhood hero and told

him about this, here now a nostalgic

2:46:192:46:24

era from Knotty Ash.

Hi, Carol, how

tickled I am to be part of your

2:46:242:46:28

programme, I hope you are having a

wonderful evening. I also hear you

2:46:282:46:32

were one of the Diddymen at Colwyn

Bay pier so if you ever want to join

2:46:322:46:36

my show, I have got your costume

ready for you, a super Diddy Man.

2:46:362:46:46

All of your achievement at up to a

wonderful career and the best is yet

2:46:462:46:50

to come, have a wonderful future.

That is lovely, watching you

2:46:502:46:55

watching that you can still see it

amuses you!

When I woke up this

2:46:552:47:00

morning and saw the news, I shed

quite a few tears to be honest

2:47:002:47:04

because he was such an amazing

person, and I don't think there are

2:47:042:47:09

many like him, to be honest. He was

just so kind, always so kind. Never

2:47:092:47:14

nasty about anybody and that is a

rare thing nowadays. Just wonderful,

2:47:142:47:22

and I think my childhood was so much

better for being able to have him as

2:47:222:47:26

an entertainer in my life and I'm

sure many people watching my age

2:47:262:47:32

feel part of their childhood has

disappeared.

We really appreciate

2:47:322:47:36

you talking to us, Carol Vorderman,

thank you for joining us to talk

2:47:362:47:40

about Ken Dodd.

Some lovely memories there from

2:47:402:47:44

Carol and Ted Robbins, and thank you

for all of the messages and jokes

2:47:442:47:46

you have said this morning,

reminders of some of the great

2:47:462:47:50

moments in his career over the

years.

2:47:502:47:52

We will talk about something now

that we will also talk about

2:47:522:47:56

tomorrow, there are over 60,000

people detained in mental health

2:47:562:48:00

hospitals in England,

2:48:002:48:10

writes of 40% in the last decade and

the Prime Minister says that is too

2:48:162:48:19

high.

In the first of two special reports,

2:48:192:48:20

we will follow one patient who

prepares to leave hospital and begin

2:48:202:48:23

a new phase in her life, she is 20

years old and Breakfast's Graham

2:48:232:48:26

Satchell has been to meet her.

2:48:262:48:29

So, any worries?

2:48:292:48:30

How are you feeling?

2:48:302:48:31

I'm a bit nervous because obviously

I've been here for quite awhile

2:48:312:48:34

so it becomes kind of

normal, the routine.

2:48:342:48:36

Tee has been locked up for her own

safety for almost two years.

2:48:362:48:39

No sharp objects, not even a mirror.

2:48:392:48:41

She was detained under

the Mental Health Act just

2:48:412:48:44

after turning 18.

2:48:442:48:44

I just remember feeling every

emotion under the sun.

2:48:442:48:46

I was scared.

2:48:462:48:47

I felt upset that I've let my family

down, I felt a bit lost.

2:48:472:48:51

Initially it was really

horrible and a really

2:48:512:48:53

scary process and I started to

realise that that was what I needed.

2:48:532:48:56

They didn't section

me for no reason.

2:48:562:48:57

There was obviously a reason why.

2:48:572:48:59

Tee has been treated

at St Andrews in Northampton,

2:48:592:49:07

one of the biggest secure mental

health hospitals in the country.

2:49:102:49:18

It's the first time news cameras

have been allowed to film here.

2:49:222:49:25

Tee's problems started

when she was 14.

2:49:252:49:26

I used to self-harm so that got more

intense and quite serious and things

2:49:262:49:30

like overdosing, which obviously

I look back now and am

2:49:302:49:32

glad nothing worked.

2:49:322:49:33

Things like that,

just spiralled out of

2:49:332:49:35

control and I felt like

I couldn't cope anymore.

2:49:352:49:37

Tee, it's almost time

to leave hospital.

2:49:372:49:39

How do you think you've

done in your time here?

2:49:392:49:41

When I first got here,

I was really anxious

2:49:412:49:43

and thought I would be here forever.

2:49:432:49:45

Tee has worked hard

to get to this point.

2:49:452:49:47

With therapy and medication, she's

learned to manage her emotions.

2:49:472:49:49

But the number of people

being detained in mental health

2:49:492:49:52

hospitals in England has

gone up 40% in a decade.

2:49:522:49:54

The majority of our patients

are detained patients.

2:49:542:49:56

They are here under a section

of the Mental Health Act.

2:49:562:49:59

Sadly, there is an inexhaustible

supply of damaged

2:49:592:50:01

young women out there

who could replace the ladies

2:50:012:50:03

who are leaving.

2:50:032:50:04

Why are numbers so high?

2:50:042:50:11

The moment of crisis for Tee came

as she moved from child to adult

2:50:112:50:14

mental health services.

2:50:142:50:15

The criteria for getting help

as an adult is different.

2:50:152:50:17

Waiting times are longer.

2:50:172:50:19

As she turned 18, Tee had months

of no support and ended up

2:50:192:50:22

taking an overdose.

2:50:222:50:23

I felt like I was kind

of just left, so that gap,

2:50:232:50:26

it really made me worse.

2:50:262:50:28

My mental health deteriortated,

I felt like nobody cared,

2:50:282:50:33

I pushed the ones I loved the most

away because I thought,

2:50:332:50:36

they don't care so I don't care.

2:50:362:50:38

It was really difficult having that

period of no support.

2:50:382:50:40

Transition is supposed

to be a gradual managed

2:50:402:50:42

period from children's mental health

services to adult mental health

2:50:422:50:44

services but for many young people,

it's like falling off a cliff edge

2:50:442:50:47

and that's how many young people

describe that process.

2:50:472:50:50

So there's a long, long way to go

before we have anything looking

2:50:502:50:53

like optimal for young people.

2:50:532:50:54

I'm still crying.

2:50:542:50:55

Tee is saying her last goodbyes.

2:50:552:50:56

Well done, Tee.

2:50:562:50:58

Better things are coming.

2:50:582:51:00

It doesn't all have

to be so miserable.

2:51:002:51:04

I'm actually excited to get

out and live my life.

2:51:042:51:08

NHS England told us they're spelling

spending an extra £280 million

2:51:082:51:13

a year and trialling new models

of care, young people moving

2:51:132:51:16

to adult mental health services

at 25 rather than 18.

2:51:162:51:19

But they acknowledge too many young

people are not getting the treatment

2:51:192:51:22

they should expect.

2:51:222:51:24

You did it.

2:51:242:51:25

We did.

2:51:252:51:28

Tee is one success story.

2:51:282:51:31

Graham Satchell, BBC News.

2:51:312:51:39

Our thanks to Tee for letting us

talk to her, we will catch up with

2:51:442:51:47

her tomorrow, and thank you to the

staff at Saint Andrews for granted

2:51:472:51:51

as access and allowing us to film

with them as well.

2:51:512:51:54

We can find out what is happening

with the weather today and tomorrow

2:51:542:51:56

with Matt.

2:51:562:51:58

with the weather today and tomorrow

with Matt.

2:51:582:52:00

For today, the best of the brightest

weather in parts of Northern Ireland

2:52:002:52:04

and western Scotland, across England

and Wales grab your umbrella because

2:52:042:52:08

scenes like this will be more

common, Lincolnshire there at the

2:52:082:52:12

moment. This is linked to low

pressure pushing through the English

2:52:122:52:16

Channel towards the south-east and

onwards, the tell-tale sign is the

2:52:162:52:20

fact that the clouds are swirling

anticlockwise. The further you are

2:52:202:52:23

from that low pressure, Scotland and

Northern Ireland, outbreaks of

2:52:232:52:27

sunshine at times, the odd shower in

Northern Ireland, particularly later

2:52:272:52:33

on. Let's focus on the details for

England and Wales because this is

2:52:332:52:35

where you will be dodging the

showers. Longer spells of rain at

2:52:352:52:39

the moment in northern England which

will fragment into showers so a few

2:52:392:52:43

dry moments later on. Breezy in the

south-west, showers will push

2:52:432:52:46

through smartly but for the Midlands

and the south-east, slow-moving and

2:52:462:52:51

heavy showers with the odd rumble of

thunder possible. Isolated showers

2:52:512:52:54

into the afternoon in Northern

Ireland and parts of Scotland, but

2:52:542:52:58

much

2:52:582:53:03

much will be dry. The coldest

weather to the east coast of

2:53:052:53:08

Scotland and North East England,

further south we may have the

2:53:082:53:10

showers but could still hit 11 or 12

degrees. Tonight, outbreaks of rain

2:53:102:53:12

continue across England, the

heaviest and most persistent bursts

2:53:122:53:14

remain across eastern areas into the

morning, one or two showers to the

2:53:142:53:18

west of the UK but for a lot of you

dry weather into the night, colder

2:53:182:53:23

than the night just gone so there

could be frost on Tuesday morning.

2:53:232:53:28

Today's low-pressure systems off

into the Baltic Sea, this one

2:53:282:53:32

heading in Wednesday, sandwiched

between them is a little ridge of

2:53:322:53:36

high pressure put Tuesday. If you

are up early across East Anglia and

2:53:362:53:39

the south-east you will see some wet

weather to begin with, some showers

2:53:392:53:42

dotted across the UK for the rest of

the day but not too many, most of

2:53:422:53:47

you will spend the day dry even if

you do see a shower. More sunshine

2:53:472:53:52

across England and Wales and it will

feel quite pleasant in the sun,

2:53:522:53:57

temperatures nine to 12 Celsius for

many. Into Wednesday, brighten up

2:53:572:54:01

across eastern areas, sunshine at

times, East Anglia and the

2:54:012:54:05

south-east, cloudy in the West,

outbreaks of rain coming and going,

2:54:052:54:09

persistent across Northern Ireland

and the far west of Wales and

2:54:092:54:11

Cornwall later on but the winds,

which will touch Gale force, coming

2:54:112:54:15

from the south. Could the

temperature is widely in double

2:54:152:54:19

figures, some into the teens as

well, and some milder weather to

2:54:192:54:23

enjoy this week, some dry weather as

well but expect rain at times.

2:54:232:54:26

Potential for it to get colder as we

go into next weekend and potential

2:54:262:54:31

to get colder a bit further afield,

you saw earlier on in Jung Chang

2:54:312:54:36

temperatures reached 16 today,

thankfully for those in the Winter

2:54:362:54:41

Paralympics temperatures will drop

towards the end of the week.

2:54:412:54:45

At the age of 31, an ovarian cancer

diagnosis meant Ursula Martin's

2:54:482:54:52

travels around Europe

were cut short.

2:54:522:54:53

After months of treatment,

and a major operation,

2:54:532:54:56

she found herself back

in her hometown of Machynlleth

2:54:562:55:00

and craving adventure.

2:55:002:55:04

She decided she would walk

to her next hospital

2:55:042:55:06

appointment in Bristol,

which is 130 miles away...

2:55:062:55:08

And she didn't stop there.

2:55:082:55:11

Over 18 months, and in some

of the most gruelling

2:55:112:55:14

weather conditions,

Ursula walked more than 3,700 miles,

2:55:142:55:17

covering the length and breadth

of Wales, raising more than £11,000

2:55:172:55:20

for ovarian cancer charities.

2:55:202:55:22

Ursula has made the journey

to our sofa this morning.

2:55:222:55:27

Did

to our sofa this morning.

2:55:272:55:27

Did you

to our sofa this morning.

2:55:272:55:27

Did you walk

to our sofa this morning.

2:55:272:55:27

Did you walk all

to our sofa this morning.

2:55:272:55:27

Did you walk all the

to our sofa this morning.

2:55:272:55:28

Did you walk all the way

to our sofa this morning.

2:55:282:55:28

Did you walk all the way here?!

to our sofa this morning.

2:55:282:55:30

Did you walk all the way here?!

No,

to our sofa this morning.

2:55:302:55:30

Did you walk all the way here?!

No,

I got the train!

Take us back, I

2:55:302:55:34

love your blog and the way you write

it isn't visible, especially at the

2:55:342:55:38

beginning talking about your cancer

because it came as a real shock?

2:55:382:55:42

Yes, completely out of the blue. I

was travelling in Europe, I kayaked

2:55:422:55:46

the length of the Danube about three

months before I was diagnosed and

2:55:462:55:51

suddenly out of nowhere I found that

I had this huge growth and it came

2:55:512:55:57

in small ways and that was the

surprise, to find out that is the

2:55:572:56:02

theme of ovarian cancer, it will

grow and you may have symptoms but

2:56:022:56:05

you won't recognise it, so I was

getting things where I was having

2:56:052:56:09

pain in my pelvis and I couldn't

bend but you just brush it off and

2:56:092:56:15

think it is one of those things.

Fortunately I went back to the UK

2:56:152:56:18

for Christmas and basically went to

a friend's doctor and it all began,

2:56:182:56:25

the diagnosis began.

The walking to

hospital side of things, A, why did

2:56:252:56:31

you decide to build the hospital,

because it was quite a way?

It was,

2:56:312:56:37

I think it was because I was

travelling beforehand, so I returned

2:56:372:56:42

to Machynlleth and I have got a huge

abdominal scar, a cancer diagnosis,

2:56:422:56:49

no job, I just in limbo and really

the only thing that was certain in

2:56:492:56:53

my life was, oh, you have to go to

hospital in three months' time and

2:56:532:56:56

check it has not come back. I just

looked at a map and I thought that

2:56:562:57:02

the River Severn started a few miles

away my house I could walk down the

2:57:022:57:06

River Severn to Bristol and back up

the River Severn, back up the River

2:57:062:57:11

Wye and go home and I just thought,

why don't I do that?

I can think of

2:57:112:57:16

a lot of reasons why you would not

want to do that! But luckily you

2:57:162:57:19

didn't!

For me it was a return to

normality because the way I had been

2:57:192:57:25

living was travelling, with a

rucksack on my back in Eastern

2:57:252:57:28

Europe, so when I was able to walk

400 miles to hospital, for me, that

2:57:282:57:36

was me feeling normal again because

I could go and do what I was doing

2:57:362:57:39

before I got ill.

We are looking at

some of the pictures from the book.

2:57:392:57:45

Eating, sleeping, looking after

yourself, how did you do that on

2:57:452:57:48

that huge journey?

I kind of became

more and more aware that it was a

2:57:482:57:52

balance between self-care and always

pushing yourself onwards. In order

2:57:522:57:59

to achieve a 3500 mile walk you have

to force yourself through the pain

2:57:592:58:05

and exhaustion and you have to keep

going, but you also have to go, am I

2:58:052:58:11

warm enough, am I hydrated, how is

my blood sugar, how is this

2:58:112:58:17

affecting my decisions? So I just

learned, as I was going along, to

2:58:172:58:22

keep eating well and keep taking

care of myself.

One of the things

2:58:222:58:27

that comes through the book, it is

incredibly important to you, is to

2:58:272:58:31

spread the message because a lot of

women might have symptoms but not

2:58:312:58:35

realise and it is really important

to get diagnosed, we talk about it a

2:58:352:58:39

lot with cancer but particularly

this type of cancer?

The surprise

2:58:392:58:42

for me, when I was diagnosed, was to

find out that, at the time, it had a

2:58:422:58:48

35% survival rate after five years,

only 35% of women were still alive,

2:58:482:58:52

so that was the real shock, to go,

this is a thing that is happening

2:58:522:58:58

because of late diagnosis, what can

I do? So that was my way, so I

2:58:582:59:03

extended the walk, I thought, what

if I walk the hospital and don't

2:59:032:59:07

walk home, what if I walk around the

coastal path? It was a combined way

2:59:072:59:14

of having my own adventure but also

doing, this is my piece of

2:59:142:59:21

fundraising and symptoms awareness.

You have brought this flag with you,

2:59:212:59:24

this went with you on your travels.

How many years clear now?

Six years

2:59:242:59:29

post diagnosis.

Have you got another

walk planned? Will the flag go

2:59:292:59:34

anywhere else?

I want to walk across

Europe so it is about going back to

2:59:342:59:39

where I was before I got diagnosed.

In August I am planning to go to the

2:59:392:59:45

Ukraine and then walk back to

Britain.

You are amazing! Amazing.

2:59:452:59:51

There is something about walking,

the slow pace through the country.

2:59:512:59:55

Absolutely, it is the most

fundamental human action, it is just

2:59:552:59:58

that things off, I could not run, I

could not ride a horse, these

2:59:583:00:06

technical things, but I can walk, it

is just that absolute basic...

One

3:00:063:00:10

step at a time. It is a beautifully

written book. Thank you very much.

3:00:103:00:15

Ursula's book is called

One Woman Walks Wales.

3:00:153:00:22

Nine o'clock, and a bit of

excitement today, Shakespearean

3:00:233:00:27

excitement. All over the country,

part of a massive treasure hunt...

3:00:273:00:36

There's huge excitement this morning

as primary school children take part

3:00:363:00:38

in a treasure hunt to find books

by Shakespeare that have been hidden

3:00:383:00:41

right across the UK.

3:00:413:00:42

The idea is to introduce works

from the Bard earlier

3:00:423:00:45

than at secondary school.

3:00:453:00:46

Breakfast's Tim Muffett is with some

children taking part this morning.

3:00:463:00:48

Good morning, Tim.

Ryan Brehm...

When shall we three meet again? --

3:00:483:00:53

or in rain.

Yes, the Bard is here in

rather, celebrating the beginning of

3:00:533:01:04

a celebration of the greatest

playwright of all and the aim is to

3:01:043:01:10

get younger primary school aged

children interested in Shakespeare.

3:01:103:01:14

And as good luck would have it, a

quote from the Merry Wives Of

3:01:143:01:19

Windsor, we have guessed from the

Shakespeare trust. Jacqueline...

3:01:193:01:25

Yes, we thought if children discover

Shakespeare the refund they could

3:01:253:01:30

end up having a lifetime experience

with Shakespeare. And teachers say

3:01:303:01:33

not only do they have fun when the

exporters language and characters,

3:01:333:01:37

they also developed their critical

thinking and creativity, and

3:01:373:01:40

teachers benefit as well. Over a

third of the teachers taking part

3:01:403:01:45

had not taught Shakespeare in

primary school classes before.

Thank

3:01:453:01:48

you so much. I will interrupt a

masterwork and ask you what you have

3:01:483:01:52

learned about Shakespeare so far?

He

was born in Stratford.

3:01:523:02:02

was born in Stratford.

His dad made

gloves.

He was a writer.

Yes,

3:02:023:02:04

probably the best of all. That is

what they think. Tell us about this

3:02:043:02:09

treasure hunt, Tracy. Many of the

schools taking part will be doing

3:02:093:02:12

this as well.

The Shakespeare Trust

have sent us the book to share in

3:02:123:02:19

schools and enjoy. Once we have

shared it in school it will go into

3:02:193:02:23

this packet, and we will hide it

somewhere very close by for people

3:02:233:02:30

to hunt for. If you find it, if you

could tweet us on our school tweaked

3:02:303:02:36

and let us know some clues about how

you're going to hide it and how you

3:02:363:02:41

have got on with the book.

It is a

really good idea, gets people

3:02:413:02:46

engaged. Sorry to interrupting

again, Ian. Why is Shakespeare Week

3:02:463:02:50

such a good idea?

I think because he

really is our national poet. We

3:02:503:02:56

think in Shakespearean terms. The

world seems to be a Shakespearean

3:02:563:03:03

thing, so his language permeates the

way we feel. He ripples through our

3:03:033:03:08

DNA, I always think.

I want to ask a

question about Ken Dodd. You think

3:03:083:03:12

there is almost a parallel?

Yes, I

think he was one of the last of the

3:03:123:03:18

Shakespearean played the clown in

King Lear. Sadly, the last one --

3:03:183:03:29

the last of the Shakespearean

clowns.

Do you think some teachers

3:03:293:03:33

think some children are too young to

get into Shakespeare, and to think

3:03:333:03:37

that is wrong?

Yes, that is not

right. We have two and three macs

3:03:373:03:44

here excited about his language, but

also excited about writing with

3:03:443:03:50

quill pens, always exciting --

3:03:503:03:59

quill pens, always exciting -- we

have Year two and Year

3:03:593:04:01

3smeasure-mac.

Off you go, Ian.

--

Year two and Year 3ss.

3:04:013:04:13

Year two and Year 3ss. Lightning

bolt across the ground... My brain

3:04:133:04:19

full of waves to make the oceans

dance...

3:04:193:04:26

CHEERING absolutely brilliant!

Thank you to all the children and

3:04:283:04:31

the Tim as well. And Ian is also

someone who has paid tribute to Sir

3:04:313:04:39

Ken Dodd today,

3:04:393:06:13

someone who has paid tribute to Sir

3:06:523:07:00

# Was on the fifth of November

when time it went back

3:07:023:07:06

# Some say that's impossible, but

you and I would never look back...

3:07:063:07:11

# Every day I look at you

3:07:113:07:13

# Dressed up in your ties of blue

3:07:133:07:17

# Saying there's not

much that you can do

3:07:173:07:20

# To help the kids on Hope Street

3:07:203:07:22

# You don't seem to even care

3:07:223:07:24

# That it was you that

put them there...

3:07:243:07:27

# There's only one way of life

3:07:273:07:31

# And that's your own,

that's your own, that's your own

3:07:313:07:35

# Oh, only one way of life

3:07:353:07:38

# And that's your own,

that's your own, that's your own

3:07:383:07:43

# That's your own #.

3:07:433:07:51

STUDIO: That has taken me back a

bit!

3:07:533:07:56

Mark Chadwick, good morning.

3:07:563:07:59

Lovely to see you.

Good day.

30th

anniversary!

Yes, too long.

And

3:07:593:08:05

you're celebrating it?

Absolutely.

30 years in

3:08:053:08:10

this business is a lifetime and a

half.

I'll bet it is.

But we have

3:08:103:08:16

enjoyed every second and it has gone

very quickly.

What is the secret to

3:08:163:08:20

still going strong?

I think there is

no one above anybody else, we all

3:08:203:08:27

play the same, so it cuts out all

the argument and rivalry that can

3:08:273:08:31

happen within bounds. Practising

what we preach, really -- rivalry

3:08:313:08:37

that can happen within bands.

You

have a new acoustic album out.

3:08:373:08:42

Coming out on the 30th of March to

stop we did it because John Leckie,

3:08:423:08:47

the well-known producer, generally

an all-round good egg, he came up to

3:08:473:08:55

us at the festival and asked if we

were thinking about making an album,

3:08:553:08:59

and we said, yes, thinking about a

new record, and he asked if we

3:08:593:09:03

fancied making an acoustic record at

Abbey Road? We thought... That is a

3:09:033:09:09

few box is ticked, all right, John,

let's do it.

3:09:093:09:12

LAUGHTER

I heard he doesn't say much when he

3:09:123:09:15

works with people. What was it like?

He has worked with so many great

3:09:153:09:19

artists.

Forces you to work with his

reticence. Literally waiting for

3:09:193:09:22

something to come out of his mouth.

And then when something comes out

3:09:223:09:29

and he says, oh, yeah. And you

think, and getting of it. All

3:09:293:09:33

internally working, that is how he

does it, very clever.

Tell us about

3:09:333:09:37

the studios and working there.

Yes,

the Beatles piano in there,

3:09:373:09:42

obviously, then you go and hit that

cord, from the end of Adria Vera

3:09:423:09:47

Mora Life, and it sounds the same.

Still the same acoustics and

3:09:473:09:52

everything, so that is -- at the end

of A Day in the Life, and it sounds

3:09:523:10:01

the same. It is reimagining the

songs. It wasn't just me recording

3:10:013:10:08

the hits acoustically, because a lot

of them were acoustic anyway. So we

3:10:083:10:11

have chosen some of the more unusual

songs. Just re-recording them as

3:10:113:10:19

differently as we imagine they

possibly could.

We just playing the

3:10:193:10:23

video now and many us will remember

these pictures. You do have

3:10:233:10:27

political messages in your music?

Yes, we like to point things out to

3:10:273:10:31

people, look at the world, have

people look at the world around them

3:10:313:10:35

and think for themselves and don't

have other people making the

3:10:353:10:37

decisions for them.

In terms of

modern-day artists, mainstream music

3:10:373:10:43

these days, a lot of the songs are

basically about love. Do you think

3:10:433:10:46

people are shying away from talking

about things...

Unfortunately I

3:10:463:10:52

think you are right. And it is quite

annoying. We have written love

3:10:523:10:56

songs, who hasn't? But there are so

many things to write about,

3:10:563:11:00

especially in this day and age, and

with 30 years, some of the songs we

3:11:003:11:05

have written or relevant now, even

more so. Environmental issues and

3:11:053:11:10

things like that. 30 years ago

people were born with that and they

3:11:103:11:12

didn't understand it. Now everybody

is concerned.

There are other

3:11:123:11:26

artists who market would you like to

see more?

I would like to see a lot

3:11:263:11:30

more. But there are more, actually,

within young people, but you don't

3:11:303:11:32

get to hear about it because it is

on the Internet, on you Tube, but

3:11:323:11:35

you won't hear it on the radio. You

starting to hear more.

One topic on

3:11:353:11:38

the news at the moment is the

secondary ticket selling sites. What

3:11:383:11:41

is your take on that? So many people

got in contact with us last week

3:11:413:11:44

saying they spent a lot more on

tickets than they originally

3:11:443:11:46

thought...

It is hard to avoid, to

be honest. We avoid it pretty

3:11:463:11:51

successfully. Our festival, for

example, no secondary ticketing,

3:11:513:11:57

because people won't do it. Morally.

That helps.

You are going on tour

3:11:573:12:03

but you have had to delay it because

there has been a tragedy.

Yes,

3:12:033:12:07

that's right. But that is OK, good,

it will be fine.

Your drummer's son

3:12:073:12:17

was killed, but are you doing...

Hadn't really come on to talk about

3:12:173:12:20

that, to be honest.

Well, that is

OK. Thank you for coming in.

3:12:203:12:24

And the Leveller's 30th

anniversary acoustic album

3:12:243:12:26

is called We The Collective.

3:12:263:12:29

Recorded at Abbey Road.

Studio 2.

And thank you very much

for backing

3:12:293:12:36

me up on the scone debate, cream

first.

Absolutely, cream first.

3:12:363:12:47

Well, we agree on some things, but

not on that.

3:12:473:12:50

That's it from us.

3:12:503:12:51

We'll say goodbye with

a special tribute to Doddy -

3:12:513:12:54

the comedy legend Ken Dodd,

who died aged 90 today.

3:12:543:12:56

ANNOUNCER:

Ladies and gentlemen,

live from Blackpool,

3:12:563:12:58

it's The Ken Dodd Show.

3:12:583:12:59

How tickled I am.

3:12:593:13:00

How tickled I am

by all this goodwill.

3:13:003:13:02

What about you, Mrs?

3:13:023:13:03

Have you been tickled by goodwill?

3:13:033:13:04

Ha ha!

3:13:043:13:05

We're the greatest in

the north, aren't we?

3:13:053:13:07

AUDIENCE:

Yeah!

And the most modest.

3:13:073:13:09

Laughter is rather like a rainbow.

3:13:093:13:10

Right at the top we have the pure

joy of children who laugh just

3:13:103:13:14

because it's good to be alive.

3:13:143:13:15

Then, as you go through your life,

so your chuckle muscle gets a little

3:13:153:13:18

bit more worn and you end up

by being rather...

3:13:183:13:21

Satirical and ironic.

3:13:213:13:22

And I think I've still kept

a lot of the child.

3:13:223:13:26

And the man from Blackpool

Corporation said, "Mrs,

3:13:263:13:27

would you mind getting off

the beach, please?

3:13:273:13:29

The tide's waiting to come in."

3:13:293:13:31

She said, "Doctor, can I have some

more sleeping pills for my husband?"

3:13:313:13:34

He said, "Why?"

She said, "He's woke up."

3:13:343:13:36

# Happiness #.

3:13:363:13:37

Happiness!

3:13:373:13:45
