That's all from the BBC News at Six

so it's goodbye from me

0:00:000:00:05

Tonight on BBC London News.

so it's goodbye from me

0:00:050:00:07

Facing jail, the ex-boyfriend

of a reality TV star found guilty

0:00:070:00:09

of carrying out an acid attack

in a packed nightclub

0:00:090:00:12

leaving 14 people injured.

0:00:120:00:17

I'm angry about it,

and I think it has affected me.

0:00:170:00:20

I wouldn't go into a club

like that again, I don't

0:00:200:00:23

like being in busy places.

0:00:230:00:24

Now calls from some of the victims

for tougher sentences.

0:00:240:00:26

Also tonight.

0:00:260:00:30

Fighting plans post-Grenfell

to fit their flats with sprinklers.

0:00:300:00:32

The leaseholders who claim it's

a complete waste of money.

0:00:320:00:36

Plus, life after Brexit.

0:00:360:00:38

The EU nationals living in London

travelling to Brussels

0:00:380:00:40

looking for answers.

0:00:400:00:48

And the young refugees making a new

life for themselves in the capital

0:00:480:00:52

with the help of money raised by

children in need.

0:00:520:01:00

Good evening and welcome

to the programme.

0:01:000:01:02

I'm Chris Rogers.

0:01:020:01:03

A man has been found guilty

of carrying out an acid attack

0:01:030:01:06

in a packed club in Dalston,

East London - injuring 14 people.

0:01:060:01:12

Arthur Collins, the ex-boyfriend

of reality TV star Ferne McCann,

0:01:120:01:15

admitted throwing the bottle

of fluid over clubbers,

0:01:150:01:19

but said he thought

it was a date rape drug,

0:01:190:01:22

which he had snatched from two men

after overhearing them planning

0:01:220:01:24

to spike a girl's drink.

0:01:240:01:26

A man accused of helping

him was today cleared.

0:01:260:01:30

And a warning, some of you may find

details in Alpa Patel's

0:01:300:01:33

report distressing.

0:01:330:01:37

This is Arthur Collins. He is the

ex-boyfriend top reality TV star

0:01:370:01:41

Ferne McCann. He said he had gone

out clubbing last April to celebrate

0:01:410:01:46

her pregnancy. This is Mr Collins

seen outside the Mangle nightclub in

0:01:460:01:54

Dalston. Eyewitnesses say the club

was packed. The short time later

0:01:540:01:59

Arthur Collins through the liquid.

People clutch their face and run off

0:01:590:02:03

the dance floor. These are some of

the injuries. 22 people were hurt.

0:02:030:02:08

16 of them suffered serious burns,

including Lauren Trent, who was

0:02:080:02:14

celebrating her birthday.

I remember

hearing this sound, you know when

0:02:140:02:19

you open a Coke bottle. That hissing

sound. I remember steam coming off

0:02:190:02:23

the floor and my friend grabbing me.

I remember looking up as quickly as

0:02:230:02:27

I could because the sound shocked

me. It was like someone had let off

0:02:270:02:31

a gas bomb. It had blistered

straightaway. This happened in the

0:02:310:02:39

space of 40 seconds.

The injuries

caused by the acid have had lifelong

0:02:390:02:44

effects on some of the victims. CB's

injuries were so bad she didn't want

0:02:440:02:49

to appear on camera.

Every time they

had to change the bandages, they had

0:02:490:02:54

to scrape off the skin that had been

damaged. It was so painful. Every

0:02:540:02:58

time that happened I had to be an

morphine for the pain. It was the

0:02:580:03:03

hardest thing I've ever had to deal

with. When I had to get my bandages

0:03:030:03:09

changed all the time, I thought I

didn't even want to live, I couldn't

0:03:090:03:12

deal with it.

Victims say they live

with the actions of Arthur Collins

0:03:120:03:17

everyday.

Mentally I've been

suffering from sleep paralysis

0:03:170:03:23

constantly, anxiety, panic attacks.

I can't going to busy spaces. It's

0:03:230:03:27

put a stop on my life the seven

months.

There aren't words to

0:03:270:03:32

describe him. I wouldn't describe

him as normal. No normal human being

0:03:320:03:36

does something like that.

Arthur

Collins will be sentenced in

0:03:360:03:39

December.

0:03:390:03:42

Well, Ian Palmer is

at Wood Green Court,

0:03:420:03:44

where Arthur Collins was convicted.

0:03:440:03:46

And, Ian, calls tonight from some

of those who were injured

0:03:460:03:48

in the attack for tougher sentences.

0:03:480:03:55

That's right. The BBC has spoken to

a number of the victims, many of

0:03:550:04:00

whom have life changing injuries.

One of them said she would like to

0:04:000:04:04

see a mandatory life sentence that

anyone convicted of an acid attack.

0:04:040:04:11

Certainly it is a problem here in

London. You may remember last July

0:04:110:04:16

five people were injured in an acid

attack in a space of an hour. There

0:04:160:04:19

have been 415 acid attacks in the

borough of new alone since 2010 and

0:04:190:04:25

in the past seven years there have

been 1800 acid attacks in London --

0:04:250:04:30

in the borough of Newham alone. The

Home Office is going to be

0:04:300:04:35

publishing a series of guidelines

and the judge in the Arthur Collins

0:04:350:04:41

cases taking it very seriously

indeed. He told the 25-year-old he

0:04:410:04:46

can expect a substantial jail term

as a result of his crimes.

Thank

0:04:460:04:50

you.

0:04:500:04:57

Following Grenfell came calls for

greater safety and high-rise

0:04:570:05:00

buildings. The questions as to who

would pay for the work now exist.

0:05:000:05:05

Last week Labour called on the

government to fund the fitting of

0:05:050:05:08

sprinklers in all high-rise social

housing. There is anger amongst

0:05:080:05:12

leaseholders in bonds with that they

could be facing a bill for thousands

0:05:120:05:16

of the work to be carried out. Work

which they claim is completely

0:05:160:05:20

unnecessary.

0:05:200:05:23

Joe has lived in his flat

on the Alton Estate in Roehampton

0:05:230:05:25

for nearly 30 years.

0:05:260:05:27

He's been told he'll have to pay out

up to £4000 to cover the cost

0:05:270:05:30

of fitting sprinklers to his tower

block, to make it safer

0:05:300:05:33

following the Grenfell tragedy.

0:05:330:05:34

I don't think there's enough

evidence to justify it.

0:05:340:05:37

They don't share some

of the features of Grenfell,

0:05:370:05:40

such as the external cladding.

0:05:400:05:42

These are all solid

concrete on the outside.

0:05:420:05:45

It needs further consideration.

0:05:450:05:48

Wandsworth Council wants to fit

sprinklers in all its blocks

0:05:480:05:50

of at least ten stories.

0:05:500:05:52

Residents who rent from the council

won't be liable to pay,

0:05:520:05:55

but those who own their own homes

will have too.

0:05:550:05:58

It's around 2000 leaseholders.

0:05:580:06:00

Do you think it's a good

idea, is it needed?

0:06:000:06:03

I don't feel these buildings do,

mainly because they're all concrete,

0:06:030:06:06

they don't have any cladding.

0:06:060:06:08

The internal system,

which is where they're

0:06:080:06:11

going to put the sprinklers,

is also concrete.

0:06:110:06:13

I think it's brilliant,

because especially after

0:06:130:06:15

what happened with Grenfell,

I think it's good that they put

0:06:150:06:18

all this health and safety

stuff in the blocks.

0:06:180:06:22

The questions some people

here are asking is "why now?"

0:06:220:06:25

Previous fire risk assessments

haven't recommended the installation

0:06:250:06:27

of sprinklers, and some residents

wonder whether the money

0:06:270:06:30

might be better spent.

0:06:300:06:36

The Grenfell Inquiry

is likely to give clearer

0:06:360:06:37

instructions to councils

about fire safety improvements.

0:06:370:06:41

Wandsworth Council says

although there is no specific risk

0:06:410:06:43

to any of its high-rise properties

currently, it has a duty to provide

0:06:430:06:46

peace of mind for residents,

and some will have to pay.

0:06:460:06:53

We have taken legal advice,

which confirms leaseholders

0:06:530:06:55

have a duty to pay towards it.

0:06:550:06:58

You think this will save lives then?

0:06:580:07:00

Of course.

0:07:000:07:01

There's absolutely every evidence

to say that houses with sprinklers

0:07:010:07:03

do not result in fatalities.

0:07:030:07:08

Other councils, including Croydon,

are already retrofitting

0:07:080:07:10

homes with sprinklers.

0:07:100:07:13

Experts say it's only

part of the solution.

0:07:130:07:16

The fitting of sprinklers

is always a good thing.

0:07:160:07:19

They are a very effective means

of suppressing fire and increasing

0:07:190:07:22

someone's chance of escaping.

0:07:220:07:24

But the idea of retrofitting

to the entire stock of tall

0:07:240:07:26

buildings in the country shouldn't

be necessary at all.

0:07:260:07:30

If the buildings are maintained

there shouldn't be any need

0:07:300:07:33

for supplementary systems.

0:07:330:07:36

Leaseholders will have up to four

years to pay their share

0:07:360:07:39

of the £30 million cost

of fitting the sprinklers.

0:07:390:07:41

Wandsworth is still discussing

with the government

0:07:410:07:43

whether it will help pay.

0:07:430:07:45

Victoria Hollins, BBC London News.

0:07:450:07:49

Boris Johnson has apologised

and admitted for the first time

0:07:490:07:52

that he made comments

which threatened to extend

0:07:520:07:55

the prison sentence for a woman

from London who is jailed in Iran

0:07:550:07:58

on "spying" charges.

0:07:580:08:00

The Foreign Secretary had told MPs

a fortnight ago that

0:08:000:08:02

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliff had been

"training journalists"

0:08:020:08:05

when she was arrested but her family

insists she was simply

0:08:050:08:08

on holiday visiting relatives.

0:08:080:08:11

Her husband is due to meet

Mr Johnson and is appealing

0:08:110:08:13

for the government to do more

to get his wife home.

0:08:130:08:17

Let's speak now

to Richard Ratcliffe.

0:08:170:08:23

A roller-coaster of a fortnight for

you but it's been 20 months that

0:08:230:08:27

you've been waiting for your

daughter and your wife to walk

0:08:270:08:30

through that front door of your home

in West Hampstead. Can you give us

0:08:300:08:33

an insight into what that 20 months

has been like?

It's been a long,

0:08:330:08:38

long marathon of a process and we've

been battling for a long time.

0:08:380:08:42

Obviously there was a Herriot when

we didn't know what was happening,

0:08:420:08:46

then the period when we started

campaigning and she was taken to

0:08:460:08:50

court and we discovered all she'd

been through in terms of solitary

0:08:500:08:53

confinement. As you say, this last

couple of weeks have been a

0:08:530:09:00

completely new level, we've been on

all the news media following the

0:09:000:09:03

Foreign Secretary's comments and the

way they impacted on the court case.

0:09:030:09:08

I think today the Foreign Secretary

made a clear statement in

0:09:080:09:10

Parliament. He apologised for the

impact on us and said he was

0:09:100:09:16

considering taking me to a Rann and

giving Nazanin diplomatic

0:09:160:09:21

protection. -- taking me to Iran.

In

some ways you've got his personal

0:09:210:09:29

attention. Do you really feel there

is now a real chance to get your

0:09:290:09:33

daughter, who you only speak to an

Skype once a week, to get them home

0:09:330:09:40

for Christmas?

That's the hope.

Nazanin is now a more important case

0:09:400:09:45

in UK politics and lots of MPs have

been saying all sorts of things

0:09:450:09:49

about her. Of course there is no

guarantee. She's facing another

0:09:490:09:51

court case. Yes, my fervent hope is

that she can be home for Christmas

0:09:510:09:58

and the pair of them can be buying a

Christmas tree and all the other

0:09:580:10:01

things they look forward to.

You've

often said you just want to get back

0:10:010:10:05

to the normal hustle and bustle of

everyday life. Are you just a

0:10:050:10:10

typical London family that's got

caught up in international

0:10:100:10:12

diplomatic tensions?

Yes, obviously

on the telly more than most. Clearly

0:10:120:10:22

to get back to the complaining about

the tube and bustling to get stuff

0:10:220:10:26

and rushing around getting to

places, all the things we used to do

0:10:260:10:29

before, would be good to get back to

that.

Are you coping and is name --

0:10:290:10:37

and is Nazanin and your daughter

coping?

It's obviously a very tough

0:10:370:10:41

time for Nazanin. She is being

called a spy and all sorts of

0:10:410:10:50

things. I spoke to her on Sunday and

she said she felt she was on the

0:10:500:10:53

verge of a nervous breakdown. In

terms of me, in some ways it's been

0:10:530:10:58

very tough couple of weeks. All

sorts of things have happened. In

0:10:580:11:02

some ways getting the spotlight and

the concern of people in London and

0:11:020:11:08

beyond has made such a difference

and that can only help resolve it.

0:11:080:11:12

You've got Boris Johnson's attention

and there are plans for diplomatic

0:11:120:11:17

protection which could help get her

back home. Of course we have an

0:11:170:11:21

Iranian Embassy in London, they

could be watching. What is your

0:11:210:11:24

message and your wife's message to

the Iranian authorities?

The message

0:11:240:11:29

is that this has gone on long enough

and clearly Nazanin has suffered a

0:11:290:11:33

lot. There are every grounds for her

to be released. She served one

0:11:330:11:38

sentence, shall be eligible for

early release and a couple of weeks'

0:11:380:11:40

time. Could they please push back

forward.

We wish you well.

0:11:400:11:47

Scotland Yard have launched

a campaign urging Londoners

0:11:470:11:49

to hand in firearms,

to try and get them off the street.

0:11:490:11:52

34 police stations across

the capital are taking part

0:11:520:11:54

in the campaign over

the next two weeks.

0:11:540:11:56

Those handing in guns won't be

prosecuted for illegal possession -

0:11:560:11:59

but if the weapon is later linked

to a crime, they could

0:11:590:12:02

be questioned.

0:12:020:12:08

We offer an amnesty at the point of

surrender. The moment in time you

0:12:080:12:13

give it to a police officer, then we

will offer an amnesty at that moment

0:12:130:12:16

in time. That does not mean we will

not pay attention to what the weapon

0:12:160:12:20

has done in the past. We will look

to examine that forensically to see

0:12:200:12:25

whether it's been involved in crime

in a past.

0:12:250:12:32

Should schools train all their staff

in mental health "first aid"?

0:12:320:12:35

One of the largest academy chains

in the country thinks so after it

0:12:350:12:38

found a large number of pupils

at a school were struggling

0:12:380:12:41

with almost 90 saying they had

deliberately harmed themselves.

0:12:410:12:43

Our education reporter Marc Ashdown

reports from a school in Wembley

0:12:430:12:45

where teachers are being trained

to deal with pupils

0:12:450:12:47

who are suffering feelings

of depression and hopelessness.

0:12:470:12:52

One teenager told us the bullying

got so bad that she used to crawl

0:12:520:12:55

into a corner and refused

to go to school.

0:12:550:12:57

Her words are spoken by an actor.

0:12:570:12:59

I was lashing out at

teachers, my mum and dad.

0:12:590:13:02

I then started self

harming, every day.

0:13:020:13:05

I felt like no one

was listening to me.

0:13:050:13:07

Then I tried to commit suicide.

0:13:070:13:10

I took an overdose.

0:13:100:13:11

My mum found me

unconscious on the floor.

0:13:110:13:14

It is an extreme example but how

widespread is this sort of thing?

0:13:140:13:19

The Academy chain runs 25 schools,

snap at one found, out of 900

0:13:190:13:25

pupils, 100 said they regularly felt

depressed, hopeless and teary.

0:13:250:13:30

87 had self harmed.

0:13:300:13:38

We asked these pupils

about the pressures

0:13:380:13:40

facing young people.

0:13:400:13:41

There can be like peer pressure

and small things that

0:13:410:13:44

can get to you easily.

0:13:440:13:45

Social media can really

impact how people feel

0:13:450:13:47

about their bodies or her face,

weight, height except.

0:13:470:13:52

Symptoms in mental health people

have low confidence and others start

0:13:520:13:55

to have different body

expressions, facial expressions.

0:13:550:13:56

So the first question,

what is stress?

0:13:560:13:58

Give me some feedback.

0:13:580:14:03

Every staff member across all these

schools is now being trained

0:14:030:14:06

in mental health first aid.

0:14:060:14:07

It goes much further

than the government guidance

0:14:070:14:09

which only expects one staff member

per school to have

0:14:090:14:11

mental health training.

0:14:110:14:14

Times are tough, money is tough,

how can you justify it?

0:14:140:14:16

It is a significant investment

but we think it is our absolute

0:14:160:14:22

priority, our children

need that support and we

0:14:220:14:23

want to give them everything we can

so that their outcomes do improve,

0:14:230:14:27

so they are ready for

life beyond school.

0:14:270:14:28

It is our priority and we can

already see it is making a

0:14:280:14:32

difference.

0:14:320:14:33

It really helped this

young people to recover.

0:14:330:14:35

Back then I felt like I had nobody.

0:14:350:14:36

I couldn't reach out to anyone.

0:14:360:14:38

But now it's like

there's an open door.

0:14:380:14:40

It's given me much

more confidence to

0:14:400:14:41

make friends.

0:14:420:14:43

I don't feel like I'm alone.

0:14:430:14:45

Much of that was due to a member

of staff helping her.

0:14:450:14:49

Feeling like you've got

to be on top of it all.

0:14:490:14:52

It can actually feel like it's

really piling on top of you.

0:14:520:14:55

Across these schools

they are already

0:14:550:14:56

seeing results with teachers more

confident in spotting the early

0:14:560:14:58

warning signs of

mental health issues.

0:14:580:15:00

They believe all schools should

undertake similar training

0:15:000:15:02

and hope happy pupils will result

in them achieving more as well.

0:15:020:15:12

A group of EU citizens living

in London have met with negotiators

0:15:120:15:15

at the European Commission

in Brussels appealing to them to

0:15:150:15:17

protect their rights after Brexit.

0:15:170:15:18

The government is offering

migrants who've been living

0:15:180:15:20

here for at least five years settled

status after Brexit.

0:15:200:15:25

They'd have to apply for it but it

would essentially give them

0:15:250:15:28

indefinite leave to remain

and they'd be entitled to public

0:15:280:15:30

services and benefits.

0:15:300:15:31

They would also have the right

to appeal to the UK courts

0:15:310:15:34

if their application was rejected.

0:15:340:15:36

But campaigners say it leaves them

without any protection if there's no

0:15:360:15:39

deal on Brexit with the EU.

0:15:390:15:41

Our reporter Katharine Carpenter

joined them on their

0:15:410:15:43

mission to Brussels.

0:15:430:15:53

A journey becoming all too familiar

for members of the 3 million

0:15:530:15:58

campaign group. Between them they

have lived in London and nearly 60

0:15:580:16:03

years. They don't want the settled

state has the government is offering

0:16:030:16:07

and presenting their alternative to

the EU's negotiators today.

We

0:16:070:16:12

hoping this is a solution that can

actually be accepted by both

0:16:120:16:19

parties.

Arriving in Brussels,

there's a sense of urgency to

0:16:190:16:24

changing the UK's position.

It's a

move away from rights that people

0:16:240:16:29

have established, writes people have

enjoyed for many years, and

0:16:290:16:33

converting those into a form of

immigration status. Academically

0:16:330:16:36

that sounds abstract and odd but the

consequences are seismic for people.

0:16:360:16:44

They will go, in some instances,

from living a normal life enjoying

0:16:440:16:48

the rights they have, to being

illegal in the UK.

0:16:480:16:54

Just last week the government tried

to offer reassurance saying that

0:16:540:16:57

applications would not be turned up

on minor technicalities and there

0:16:570:17:01

would be an appeals process and

safeguarding citizens rights was the

0:17:010:17:05

top priority but the negotiators

will return here in the next few

0:17:050:17:08

weeks and the fear among campaigners

is that there is so much pressure to

0:17:080:17:12

make progress that the details, the

nitty-gritty about their future,

0:17:120:17:17

will either be glossed over and

dealt with at some point in the

0:17:170:17:21

future or rushed through. Back-up

has arrived from Germany, France and

0:17:210:17:30

Spain. Londoners now living in

mainland Europe were equally worried

0:17:300:17:34

about their futures.

My name is Jane

Golding, I am no lawyer and I live

0:17:340:17:38

in Germany but originally from

Kingston -- I am a lawyer. My main

0:17:380:17:45

concern is as a working person,

giving my right of free movement to

0:17:450:17:48

be able to work across the EU, I

have worked in four different

0:17:480:17:52

countries as a lawyer and I want to

keep those rights.

We have been here

0:17:520:17:57

many times before but we are hoping

they will listen to us now because

0:17:570:18:00

it is crunch time in the

negotiations and we need to be

0:18:000:18:03

heard.

Nice to see you again.

Finally it is time for their

0:18:030:18:12

meeting. It is with the deputy of

Michel Barnier and we are allowed to

0:18:120:18:16

film a brief hello but she does not

do interviews. They have been inside

0:18:160:18:20

for over an hour and had his

uprising when you consider this is

0:18:200:18:23

the list of things to discuss. They

will be asking her to consider a

0:18:230:18:29

special EU- UK treaty giving them

all the same rights as they have now

0:18:290:18:33

but accessed through a much simpler

registration process. Meeting over,

0:18:330:18:37

did she listen?

It is good to keep

going at it and I think we agree,

0:18:370:18:43

they agree with us that we are not

within touching distance of an

0:18:430:18:46

agreement on the citizens rights.

It's interesting because the

0:18:460:18:49

government has said again today that

they think they are in touching

0:18:490:18:54

distance.

That is not the view here

and it is not our view either.

Mixed

0:18:540:18:58

messages then from the two sides but

there is hope here that they have at

0:18:580:19:02

least been listened to.

0:19:020:19:05

Still to come...

0:19:060:19:13

Especially when they came home from

school.

0:19:130:19:15

The family making a fortune

by sharing their lives with millions

0:19:150:19:18

of followers on YouTube.

0:19:180:19:20

Each year hundreds of child refugees

arrive here in London,

0:19:270:19:29

many traumatised and vulnerable.

0:19:290:19:33

Some are helped by the charity

Young Roots, which offers vital

0:19:330:19:36

support, as well as a chance to make

friends with other young

0:19:360:19:39

people who have gone

through the same experience.

0:19:390:19:41

The work they do is supported

by money you donate

0:19:410:19:43

to Children In Need.

0:19:430:19:44

Here's Thomas Magill.

0:19:440:19:47

A youth group with a difference.

0:19:500:19:52

The youngsters here

are all child refugees.

0:19:520:19:57

I am Omar, from Syria,

and my age is almost 18.

0:19:570:20:03

When Omar fled Damascus

a year ago, he couldn't

0:20:030:20:05

speak any English.

0:20:050:20:07

And although his journey

to London was fairly

0:20:070:20:10

straightforward, unlike so many

others, it came at a cost.

0:20:100:20:13

I feel sad because

everything is changing

0:20:130:20:15

in Syria.

0:20:150:20:17

We lost everything, and I haven't

seen my sister for almost

0:20:170:20:20

one year.

0:20:200:20:23

When I see my sister from the phone

or the TV, it makes you

0:20:230:20:27

really sad.

0:20:270:20:28

You can't do anything

for your sister.

0:20:280:20:31

Forced to flee Syria,

Omar now attends Young Roots,

0:20:310:20:36

a charity in London funded

by Children in Need which offers

0:20:360:20:42

help and support to child

refugees just like him.

0:20:420:20:45

We help each other, we cook

something with children, and

0:20:450:20:47

we get our dinner here.

0:20:470:20:49

You've seen today, we do

some sport, like yoga.

0:20:490:20:54

When young people first come,

they are very often isolated.

0:20:540:20:56

They don't speak English,

and they are worried

0:20:560:20:58

about their future.

0:20:580:21:01

The money we get from Children

in Need is absolutely

0:21:010:21:06

vital and we wouldn't be able to do

the work that we do without

0:21:060:21:09

that money.

0:21:090:21:12

There is no doubt the scheme has

helped change Omar's life, but

0:21:120:21:17

for others, there's still a long way

to go, and it is hoped the charity's

0:21:170:21:21

help and the friendships forged

here will go some way to helping

0:21:210:21:25

these young people forget the trauma

and devastation they were forced to

0:21:250:21:28

flee.

0:21:280:21:29

Thomas Magill, BBC London News.

0:21:290:21:33

So, that is just one

example of where your

0:21:360:21:38

Children In Need money goes.

0:21:380:21:41

Remember, you can join us on the big

night this Friday November 17th.

0:21:410:21:48

Pudsey will be there too of course

at Warner Brothers Studio tours

0:21:480:21:51

in Hertfordshire along with some

very special guests.

0:21:510:21:52

To be there too just tell us

what you're doing to raise money.

0:21:560:22:03

Nine years ago Jonathan Joly

filmed his wife going into labour

0:22:030:22:06

with their first child,

in fact he filmed the whole

0:22:060:22:08

thing and put it online.

0:22:080:22:11

The video became an internet

sensation and inspired the couple

0:22:110:22:13

from Surrey to give up their jobs

and film their lives,

0:22:130:22:16

around the clock.

0:22:160:22:17

But is the lack of privacy worth

the huge riches it has brought them?

0:22:170:22:20

Sarah Harris has been finding out.

0:22:200:22:26

Especially when they

came home from school.

0:22:260:22:32

Filming their every move

and even in the book

0:22:320:22:34

is about their own family.

0:22:340:22:38

Nine years after launching

themselves onto the Internet,

0:22:380:22:41

the Saccone-Jolys have given

up their jobs and are making a good

0:22:410:22:44

living out of this full-time.

0:22:440:22:48

Would I recommend marrying

the person you work with every

0:22:480:22:50

single day, having children

with that person...

0:22:500:22:52

You can say no!

0:22:520:22:55

I would!

0:22:550:22:57

I would!

0:22:570:22:58

I think it depends on the person.

0:22:580:23:01

Because we are best friends

more than we are, like,

0:23:010:23:05

in a boring relationship I feel.

0:23:050:23:09

Each video is watched by hundreds

and thousands of people online

0:23:090:23:13

and that leads to lucrative

contracts with advertisers

0:23:130:23:19

and Internet platforms

although they say money was not

0:23:190:23:21

a motivator when they got started.

0:23:210:23:26

It wasn't as lucrative back then

and it wasn't really accepted,

0:23:260:23:34

even for us in the very beginning,

we were kind of seen as almost...

0:23:340:23:37

The weirdos!

0:23:370:23:39

Yeah, like this is something weird.

0:23:390:23:40

Why would you do that?!

0:23:400:23:41

Yeah, and now it's kind of become

a lot more mainstream.

0:23:410:23:46

Their three children are a big draw

but deciding how much of their lives

0:23:460:23:50

makes the cut is one of the reasons

they turned down an offer

0:23:500:23:53

to make a TV series.

0:23:530:23:55

With us being their parents,

of course we have their best

0:23:550:23:58

interests at heart always.

0:23:580:24:00

Whereas if it were a producer

or somebody else, of course

0:24:000:24:03

they are going to want ratings

so they are going to show things

0:24:030:24:07

like tantrums or fights or arguments

and things that we really don't

0:24:070:24:09

want out there.

0:24:100:24:11

Sometimes in the middle

if we are having a big

0:24:110:24:13

fight it would be like,

hold on a second, I want to get

0:24:130:24:17

another angle on that!

0:24:170:24:18

Trawling through presents

sent to them by fans,

0:24:200:24:25

the intrusion into their lives can

be a problem but for now the family

0:24:250:24:30

is determined to make the most

of their Internet fame

0:24:300:24:32

and their lives out of the office.

0:24:320:24:34

Sarah Harris, BBC London News.

0:24:340:24:35

They must be mad! Speaking of which,

we are joined by Tomas with the

0:24:390:24:45

weather. You would love to do that,

wouldn't you?

0:24:450:24:48

No!

0:24:500:24:52

No!

0:24:520:24:54

Let me tell you what is happening

tomorrow, but milder. Today was

0:24:550:25:01

chilly, only around 7 degrees this

afternoon and that was for a brief

0:25:010:25:07

moment, a lot colder in the morning.

The clouds have rolled in and that

0:25:070:25:12

is a sign of things to come because

the weather in the next few days is

0:25:120:25:16

going to turn, not warm up because

it will still be chilly, but the

0:25:160:25:22

temperature is going to rise a bit.

These are the temperature is first

0:25:220:25:25

thing tomorrow morning I'm a still a

bit nippy, not as low as one but

0:25:250:25:31

four or five for most of us and the

clouds keep coming in tomorrow and

0:25:310:25:36

it will be pretty overcast with bits

of rain coming and going. You can

0:25:360:25:41

see the temperature is a bit higher,

three or 4 degrees up on what we

0:25:410:25:45

have had today. Pretty cloudy and

gloomy and boring on the weather

0:25:450:25:52

front tomorrow and then Wednesday

morning is going to be quite misty

0:25:520:25:56

and murky so be prepared if you are

travelling for some fog. It could be

0:25:560:26:02

quite sick, not desperately, you

should be able to see the end of

0:26:020:26:04

your nose, but high pressure means

that Wednesday morning looks gloomy

0:26:040:26:09

and murky. And in a couple of areas

probably outside of town it may

0:26:090:26:16

linger into the afternoon and this

is the time of the year for this to

0:26:160:26:22

persist. 12 degrees, cool but not

freezing. It can get colder at this

0:26:220:26:28

time of the year. And towards the

end of the week things will be

0:26:280:26:33

improving I think. We will get some

sunshine on Friday and the weekend

0:26:330:26:38

is looking pretty good as well and

after that it will cool off and into

0:26:380:26:44

December it is going to be quite

chilly.

0:26:440:26:46

Thank you.

0:26:480:26:49

Now the main headlines...

0:26:490:26:51

MPs are being promised

a "meaningful vote" on any Brexit

0:26:510:26:54

agreement before

Britain leaves the EU.

0:26:540:26:55

The Brexit Secretary said

new legislation will allow

0:26:550:26:57

parliament to scrutinise proposals

once a deal has been reached.

0:26:570:27:01

More than 350 people have been

killed in a powerful earthquake that

0:27:020:27:05

struck the northern border

of Iran and Iraq.

0:27:050:27:07

Another 4000 were injured

and the casualty figure is expected

0:27:070:27:09

to rise on both sides of the border.

0:27:090:27:13

The former boyfriend

of the reality television star

0:27:160:27:18

Ferne McCann has been found guilty

of carrying out an acid

0:27:180:27:20

attack in a nightclub.

0:27:200:27:22

14 people were injured

when Arthur Collins threw

0:27:220:27:23

the substance over a crowd.

0:27:230:27:26

That's it.

0:27:270:27:30

I will be back later

during the ten o'clock news,

0:27:300:27:35

but for now from everyone

on the team, have a lovely evening.

0:27:350:27:38

Thanks for watching.

0:27:380:27:39

Goodbye.

0:27:390:27:42
