and on BBC One we now join the BBC's

news teams where you are.

0:00:000:00:00

Tonight on BBC London News:

0:00:050:00:06

The Mayor pledges to stamp out

gender inequality and make

0:00:060:00:09

the capital feel safer

for women and girls.

0:00:090:00:11

But some question if it's the best

way forward, or even needed.

0:00:110:00:16

Also tonight:

0:00:160:00:17

Tributes to the 19-year-old shot

dead at a cinema in Wood Green.

0:00:170:00:20

His former school says

he was a popular pupil.

0:00:200:00:26

Plus the woman from Surrey horrified

to find out she had "do not

0:00:260:00:28

resusciate" on her medical forms -

against her wishes.

0:00:280:00:34

Frightening. To think that they

could have those forms and I didn't

0:00:350:00:42

know anything about them. It was my

life that they were talking about.

0:00:420:00:47

And the first woman

to take on the role.

0:00:470:00:49

We speak to the new Bishop

of London who mixes

0:00:490:00:51

the traditional with the modern.

0:00:510:00:55

I think I was voted the most tweeted

bishop. I go for quantity, not

0:00:550:01:05

necessarily quality.

0:01:050:01:07

Welcome to the programme.

0:01:160:01:19

First tonight, the mayor's unveiled

plans to make London

0:01:190:01:21

a leading city in the fight

against gender inequality.

0:01:210:01:27

More than £40 million has

been pledged for a raft

0:01:270:01:29

of measures to help make women

and girls feel safer.

0:01:290:01:36

But some have questioned the

strategy, as Sarah Harris reports.

0:01:360:01:44

A lot of people are so scared to

make the point and say, you are

0:01:440:01:49

doing this.

Listening to women from

all ages and backgrounds, the mayor

0:01:490:01:54

determined to make London a beacon

for gender equality across the

0:01:540:01:57

world. For him, that is not just

about tackling violence, but

0:01:570:02:02

changing attitudes.

Everyone here

has a story. We have to prevent

0:02:020:02:07

women being victims of violence,

women and girls. That means

0:02:070:02:11

education, changing the attitudes of

boys in particular, making sure we

0:02:110:02:16

invest in young people, making sure

there are safe places to work,

0:02:160:02:21

whether licensed premises,

workplaces, the public transport

0:02:210:02:24

network.

The event was at the Royal

Central School of speech and drama,

0:02:240:02:28

where they have introduced a zero

tolerance attitude to sexual abuse.

0:02:280:02:33

It makes you feel so vulnerable.

Student Millie was able to get help

0:02:330:02:38

when she says a man rubbed himself

against her in a bar. She says that

0:02:380:02:42

they sign on the war made clear

where to get support.

I felt very

0:02:420:02:48

uncomfortable. It was not nice at

all. I actually felt a bit sick,

0:02:480:02:53

because I don't want that on me at

all. But like I say, I remembered

0:02:530:03:00

seeing a sign and it was definitely

a big reassurance to know that this

0:03:000:03:07

space had that system in place.

Across the world this week, women

0:03:070:03:15

have been marching to celebrate

International Women's Day in the

0:03:150:03:20

light of empowerment movements. But

not everyone is convinced in London

0:03:200:03:24

much intervention is needed.

I

reject that message because it

0:03:240:03:28

paints women as vulnerable, fragile.

That's not true. Women have fought

0:03:280:03:35

for years to be treated as equals

and treated as strong, autonomous

0:03:350:03:41

individuals, and I find it a bit

offensive, this message from the

0:03:410:03:45

Mayor of London that Sadiq Khan is

going to come and save women. We

0:03:450:03:49

don't need him to save us, we are

doing fine.

It is early days for the

0:03:490:03:55

mayor's plans, but there will be

funding for tackling perpetrators

0:03:550:03:59

and victims support, the aim being

to make the capital the world's

0:03:590:04:02

safest city for women.

0:04:020:04:04

Plenty more ahead

tonight, including:

0:04:040:04:05

The officer killed during a terror

attack on Westminster last year

0:04:050:04:08

is given a posthumous award

for his heroic response.

0:04:080:04:12

Tributes have been paid

to the 19-year-old shot dead

0:04:180:04:20

at a cinema complex in north London.

0:04:200:04:23

It happened close to

Wood Green Underground station.

0:04:230:04:26

His former school says

he was a popular pupil.

0:04:260:04:29

Alpa Patel has more details.

0:04:290:04:32

You now know his name.

0:04:320:04:38

Yes, we do. He has been named to us

as Kelvin. We have also learned that

0:04:380:04:45

Kelvin was a rapper and performed

under two pseudonyms. He is the

0:04:450:04:52

first teenager to be shot dead in

London so far this year. His murder

0:04:520:04:59

has understandably caused shock and

concern in Wood Green, partly

0:04:590:05:03

because the 19-year-old was shot

inside the doors of a popular cinema

0:05:030:05:07

complex just before half past

midnight yesterday. I have been

0:05:070:05:12

speaking to his old school, the

Fulneck School in Yorkshire, and

0:05:120:05:15

they have given us this tribute. He

was an extremely popular young man,

0:05:150:05:20

they said.

0:05:200:05:22

What is the latest with the

investigation?

Police have told us

0:05:330:05:37

that one line of enquiry is that the

murder was gang-related. They also

0:05:370:05:42

want to speak to anyone who may have

seen two people making off on a

0:05:420:05:46

mopeds shortly after the shooting.

But no arrests have been made so

0:05:460:05:53

far, so their investigations

continue.

Many thanks for the

0:05:530:05:55

update.

0:05:550:05:57

A woman from Surrey says

she was horrified to find out that

0:05:570:06:00

three "Do Not Attempt Resuscitation"

forms were put on her medical

0:06:000:06:03

records, against her wishes.

0:06:030:06:04

Carol Hall was in hospital

last summer with a serious lung

0:06:040:06:06

condition and says she hopes no one

else has to go through what she did.

0:06:060:06:10

Frimley Park Hospital says it's

reviewing its current forms.

0:06:100:06:12

She's been speaking to our

reporter Sophia Seth.

0:06:120:06:18

Frightening.

0:06:180:06:20

To think that they could have those

forms and I didn't know

0:06:200:06:25

anything about them.

0:06:250:06:29

Carol has a degenerative

lung condition.

0:06:290:06:33

Last summer, a chest infection

meant she was in and out

0:06:330:06:35

of Frimley Park Hospital.

0:06:350:06:37

In that time, she had three do not

attempt resuscitation

0:06:370:06:40

forms on her file.

0:06:400:06:43

Both she and her husband told me

they had no knowledge of them.

0:06:430:06:46

That can't happen, things like that.

0:06:460:06:48

And then I brought her home

because I thought, no way

0:06:480:06:50

is she going to stay there.

0:06:500:06:53

All three forms said Carol

and her family agreed she should

0:06:530:06:56

not be resuscitated,

something they dispute.

0:06:560:06:59

Resuscitation has risks.

0:06:590:07:00

Doctors are advised that a patient's

wishes should always be considered

0:07:000:07:04

but they don't have to give

treatment if they believe it

0:07:040:07:07

won't benefit the patient.

0:07:070:07:09

However, medical guidelines state

that doctors must provide honest

0:07:090:07:11

and accurate record keeping

of the process.

0:07:110:07:16

Frimley Park Hospital says it cannot

comment on this particular case.

0:07:160:07:20

However, it says it understands

the importance of good communication

0:07:200:07:23

when it comes to issues around

do not attempt cardiopulmonary

0:07:230:07:28

resuscitation.

0:07:290:07:30

The hospital also says

it is reviewing current forms

0:07:300:07:34

to make sure they are

as clear as possible for

0:07:340:07:36

clinicians and patients.

0:07:360:07:39

One charity has told us they have

seen an increase in patients

0:07:390:07:42

concerned about resuscitation forms.

0:07:420:07:45

We know doctors are under a lot

of pressure and sometimes

0:07:450:07:48

communication isn't happening.

0:07:480:07:49

And sometimes I think

they are almost frightened

0:07:490:07:51

to have the conversation,

worried the patient will be upset.

0:07:510:07:55

There are now new recommendations

for health care professionals.

0:07:550:07:58

They start by talking

about the person's condition,

0:07:580:08:01

treatment that would help them

to achieve what they want

0:08:010:08:05

to achieve, and then

going on to talk about treatments

0:08:050:08:08

that wouldn't help them

and would be better avoided,

0:08:080:08:11

including resuscitation.

0:08:110:08:14

Carol is now receiving NHS

care packages at home.

0:08:140:08:17

She hopes no one else goes

through what she did.

0:08:170:08:20

I'd like to see that they

are treated correctly,

0:08:200:08:25

with care and compassion.

0:08:250:08:29

Some people out there might not have

any family to stick up for them.

0:08:290:08:35

Carol Hall ending that report.

0:08:350:08:37

It was almost a year ago

that the Westminster terror attack

0:08:370:08:40

claimed the lives of seven people.

0:08:400:08:42

One of them was PC Keith Palmer

who was stabbed to death outside

0:08:420:08:45

Parliament after he bravely

confronted the attacker.

0:08:450:08:49

Today the Met officer was given

a posthumous award by the force

0:08:490:08:51

for his heroic response.

0:08:510:08:54

Asad Ahmad can tell us more.

0:08:540:08:56

He's in Westminster now.

0:08:560:09:05

Roof, it was in March last year that

Khalid Masood drove his vehicle down

0:09:050:09:12

behind me, bowing into as many

innocent people as he could, trying

0:09:120:09:15

to claim as many lives as he could.

He got out, ran around the front of

0:09:150:09:19

the Palace of Westminster to the

gates being patrolled by police. One

0:09:190:09:23

of those police was PC Keith Palmer,

who was determined to stop the

0:09:230:09:27

attack upon getting inside and

claiming more lives. He was not even

0:09:270:09:31

put off by the two large knives in

the attack's hands. The

0:09:310:09:36

confrontation proved fatal and a

short time after that the attacker

0:09:360:09:40

was shot dead by armed police. That

outstanding act of bravery, as it

0:09:400:09:45

was referred to this afternoon, won

him a posthumous award. The

0:09:450:09:49

commission of the Metropolitan

Police had this to say after the

0:09:490:09:52

ceremony.

0:09:520:09:54

We wish it hadn't happened but to be

able to recognise the extraordinary

0:09:540:09:57

nature of what he did,

a proud police officer,

0:09:570:09:59

loved working there, a great copper,

loved arresting bad people,

0:09:590:10:02

somebody people loved working with.

0:10:020:10:03

To be able to say, well done, Keith,

and thank you so much.

0:10:030:10:06

And to say that also to his family

was very important for us as a big

0:10:060:10:10

family organisation.

0:10:100:10:20

As you could probably tell from

that, it was an emotional ceremony

0:10:210:10:25

at times. Not all the awards went to

police officers. Conservative MP

0:10:250:10:30

Tobias Ellwood, who came to the aid

of PC Keith Palmer as he lay

0:10:300:10:34

bleeding, received an

acknowledgement today, as did the

0:10:340:10:38

policeman of the year, police

community support officer of the

0:10:380:10:42

year, and also an acknowledgement to

the work police teams are doing

0:10:420:10:46

around London to try and reduce

drugs and knife crime. Today was

0:10:460:10:51

about celebrating the work of the

police as well as remembering an

0:10:510:10:53

officer lost in the line of duty.

Thank you.

0:10:530:10:59

It's being described as an end

of an era for fans of an iconic

0:10:590:11:03

music magazine which has featured

global superstars like

0:11:030:11:05

the Beatles and David Bowie.

0:11:050:11:06

The print version of the NME

has been released for

0:11:060:11:08

the final time today.

0:11:080:11:10

The London-based publication

will now only be available online

0:11:100:11:12

due to rising production costs.

0:11:120:11:18

We asked some Londoners with

connections to the magazine to share

0:11:180:11:21

memories of what it meant for them.

There are flashing images in this

0:11:210:11:24

report.

0:11:240:11:27

When I was growing up,

it was really my window

0:11:270:11:30

into the world I cared about.

0:11:300:11:34

I was a child in the 60s and I think

if you were a child in the 60s,

0:11:340:11:38

then music was absolutely

at the centre of your universe.

0:11:380:11:41

And the NME you was my Bible.

0:11:410:11:49

I ended up working for the NME

because it was the only job

0:11:490:11:54

in the world that I really wanted,

and I will tell

0:11:540:11:57

you what it was like.

0:11:570:11:58

It was like stepping

through the back of the wardrobe

0:11:580:12:01

into Narnia, a completely magical

and transcendent experience.

0:12:010:12:11

My name is Mickey.

0:12:110:12:12

I used to be in a band called Lush.

0:12:120:12:18

You rushed to the newsagents

and it was like, where is it?

0:12:180:12:21

It would be mortifying

it was a bad review,

0:12:210:12:25

but if it was a good review,

you would be really excited

0:12:250:12:28

and getting copies for your

mum and all of that.

0:12:280:12:33

We discovered bands

and we championed bands

0:12:330:12:35

and we understood what the little

kernel of magic that their hearts.

0:12:350:12:39

It sometimes would absolutely tear

you to pieces, but I have to say

0:12:440:12:47

looking back on it I don't think it

really mattered whether it was

0:12:470:12:51

a good or bad review.

0:12:510:12:54

It was really about having a voice

and that was the only medium

0:12:540:12:57

for people to find out about you.

0:12:570:13:05

Getting an NME front

cover if you were a band

0:13:050:13:09

was the equivalent of getting

a million hits on your YouTube

0:13:090:13:12

channel now, or whatever

is the contemporary equivalent.

0:13:120:13:17

You were kind of a made

man, or a made band.

0:13:170:13:19

If the NME said you were good,

you were good, and people

0:13:190:13:22

would buy your records

on the strength of that alone.

0:13:220:13:32

When the NME was great, and it was

great for knocking on for half a

0:13:360:13:40

century, we were standing on the

shoulders of giants. We had so much

0:13:400:13:45

to write about. It is a period of

time, a magical embarrassment of

0:13:450:13:50

riches, a golden area for music that

has drawn to a close, and the NME is

0:13:500:13:56

part of that.

0:13:560:13:59

They're hailed as a new way to help

the homeless by one borough.

0:13:590:14:02

But some residents living

in shipping containers converted

0:14:020:14:04

into flats have complained

about the conditions.

0:14:040:14:06

Ealing Council says it hasn't

received any complaints

0:14:060:14:07

but has apologised for recent

problems with their bills.

0:14:070:14:10

Gareth Furby has the story.

0:14:100:14:13

They are shipping containers

and now temporary homes.

0:14:130:14:16

Opened in Hanwell, West London,

almost a year ago,

0:14:160:14:19

and then in Acton three months ago.

0:14:190:14:22

And hailed by Ealing Council as

a new way to help homeless families.

0:14:220:14:26

So how is it working out?

0:14:260:14:28

Not too well, according

to some residents.

0:14:280:14:32

Put your hand here.

0:14:320:14:32

It's colder than outside.

0:14:320:14:34

There's not enough heating.

0:14:340:14:35

There are no radiators

in the kitchen area,

0:14:350:14:37

the passage or the bathroom.

0:14:370:14:39

At night, you can't get out of bed

because of the cold.

0:14:390:14:41

They said, "If you don't like it,

we'll take your name off the list

0:14:410:14:44

and you can go with your family

and sleep on the street".

0:14:440:14:47

Ealing Council says it hasn't

received any complaints,

0:14:470:14:49

but, in another Acton container,

we met a mother of three.

0:14:490:14:52

It is absolutely freezing.

0:14:520:14:54

There is no heating in the bathroom.

0:14:540:14:56

And she showed us documents

which state that the rent has

0:14:560:14:59

just gone up by 20%,

to £415 per week,

0:14:590:15:03

around £1800 a month.

0:15:030:15:06

Her payments are covered

by benefits, but she says that

0:15:060:15:08

would mean her two-bed container

costs around £400 per month more

0:15:080:15:14

to rent than the two-bed

house she had to leave.

0:15:140:15:16

When we pointed out

to Ealing Council that shipping

0:15:160:15:18

containers were now apparently

costing more than bricks and mortar,

0:15:180:15:21

they said they'd made a mistake.

0:15:210:15:23

We have made an error in the last

two weeks in sending out

0:15:230:15:28

a revised rent bill.

0:15:280:15:29

That will be corrected immediately.

0:15:290:15:31

The council says the converted

containers are good value for money,

0:15:310:15:35

about £1000 a month cheaper

than bed-and-breakfast

0:15:350:15:37

accommodation.

0:15:370:15:40

We haven't received any

complaints from residents

0:15:400:15:41

about that at the moment,

so we will look into

0:15:410:15:44

what has been said.

0:15:440:15:46

We certainly hope that what we've

provided is some very thermally

0:15:460:15:49

comfortable accommodation.

0:15:490:15:52

Ealing Council says conditions

here are much better than in a B&B.

0:15:520:15:55

But it will investigate

all complaints.

0:15:550:15:58

Gareth Furby, BBC London News.

0:15:580:16:02

Stay with us.

Still to come before 7pm...

0:16:030:16:07

How to be more inclusive.

0:16:070:16:10

The London dance group

taking their message

0:16:100:16:11

to the Winter Paralympics in South

Korea.

0:16:110:16:19

And the weather has gone downhill

today, with cloud and rain spreading

0:16:190:16:23

from the south. Over the weekend,

temperatures will only be heading

0:16:230:16:27

upwards. All the details coming up.

0:16:270:16:33

Before that, though,

the final in our series this week

0:16:340:16:38

marking International Women's Day

and an insight into the some

0:16:380:16:41

of the women holding senior

positions in London.

0:16:410:16:43

Tonight we hear from the new Bishop

of London, Sarah Mullally,

0:16:430:16:45

the first woman to hold the post.

0:16:450:16:49

She officially takes on the role

in May but I caught up

0:16:490:16:52

with her as she visited

St Mary's Church in Stoke Newington.

0:16:520:16:56

So when did you first realise that

faith was going to be

0:16:560:16:59

a big part of your life?

0:16:590:17:01

As a teenager I became Christian

and it was that moment

0:17:010:17:04

in which I suppose I thought

if I believed something

0:17:040:17:08

about Jesus Christ and God

there was that moment

0:17:080:17:11

where I thought actually, I would

commit my life to following him.

0:17:110:17:13

So it was at about 16.

0:17:130:17:18

Because you went into nursing first,

you were the youngest

0:17:180:17:20

chief nursing officer,

bringing up two children

0:17:200:17:22

and training as a priest.

0:17:220:17:24

Was there ever a time

when you thought, this is just too

0:17:240:17:28

much, I just can't do it?

0:17:280:17:29

I think women are good

jugglers really.

0:17:290:17:32

So there was a sense

in which being the government's

0:17:320:17:36

chief nursing officer

supported my training

0:17:360:17:39

as a priest and being a mother

supported all of them.

0:17:390:17:42

I mean we all know what it

is to juggle so I just

0:17:420:17:45

juggled a number of things.

0:17:450:17:48

Do you think there is more

expectation put on you than a man

0:17:480:17:52

because you are the first female

Bishop of London?

0:17:520:17:53

I think if you talk to a lot

of women who are appointed

0:17:530:17:57

into senior positions,

the expectations are different

0:17:570:17:58

than if it had been a man.

0:17:580:18:01

And that's just being

conscious of that.

0:18:010:18:04

People will watch me probably closer

than if a man had been

0:18:040:18:07

appointed to London.

0:18:070:18:08

Some London churches

find your authority a hard

0:18:080:18:11

to take, or don't accept it

because you're a woman.

0:18:110:18:14

That's right, yes.

0:18:140:18:16

And there are across London people

who won't accept my ordination

0:18:160:18:19

at a priest or as a bishop.

0:18:190:18:23

What I want, however,

is to work with them,

0:18:230:18:25

and I'm very clear that we have

to work out a way of working.

0:18:250:18:28

So it doesn't mean

they can ignore me.

0:18:280:18:32

Some are saying they would break

away if the next Bishop of London

0:18:320:18:34

had liberal views on sexuality.

0:18:340:18:39

The issue of sexuality is clearly

a complex one in London and one

0:18:390:18:43

of the things for us to do

is to enable people to find

0:18:430:18:45

a spiritual home in each and every

church wherever they are.

0:18:450:18:49

But the LGBT community in London

will want to have a lead

0:18:490:18:52

from you that the church

is inclusive, and by not telling

0:18:520:18:56

them how you feel about blessing

a same-sex marriage,

0:18:560:19:02

do you feel like you're letting

them down in some way?

0:19:020:19:07

London is made up of huge,

diverse groups and absolutely

0:19:070:19:12

we need to enable people to,

for them to find a spiritual home.

0:19:120:19:15

We cannot condone homophobic action.

0:19:150:19:19

We ought to be able to have

confidence in talking

0:19:190:19:21

about God but also respectful

of other people's views.

0:19:210:19:23

And my experience,

particularly of the young

0:19:230:19:26

is that they are interested in those

conversations and I want to push us

0:19:260:19:29

as much as anything.

0:19:290:19:33

Do any of them ask if the Bible

is literally true?

0:19:330:19:36

I think a lot of people would talk

about what is the Bible.

0:19:360:19:40

My belief is that God

works through it and it

0:19:400:19:43

interprets with us today.

0:19:430:19:45

And those are the sort

of conversations, it's absolutely

0:19:450:19:47

right that young people engage with.

0:19:470:19:48

Do they ask that, though?

0:19:480:19:50

Of course they do!

0:19:500:19:55

So is it true that you tweet

the most among your peers?

0:19:550:19:58

I think I was voted the most

tweeting Bishop, yes, I was!

0:19:580:20:00

That's quite an accolade!

0:20:000:20:02

I go for quantity not

necessarily quality!

0:20:020:20:05

So what would be your advice

to young girls in London?

0:20:050:20:10

Oh, for me, in a sense for them

to believe in themselves.

0:20:100:20:14

The possibilities are enormous

and just for them to know that

0:20:140:20:16

actually what they want to achieve,

it's absolutely within

0:20:160:20:19

their gift to do that.

0:20:190:20:20

Have confidence in who they are.

0:20:200:20:23

Advice from Sarah Mullally, the new

Bishop of London.

0:20:280:20:31

Football and West Ham's Premier

League future hangs in the balance

0:20:310:20:36

with the team hovering

dangerously close to

0:20:360:20:38

the bottom of the table.

0:20:380:20:39

Manager David Moyes has

a huge challenge to get

0:20:390:20:41

things right on the pitch.

0:20:410:20:42

But there's also trouble brewing off

it with fans in disagreement

0:20:420:20:45

about holding a protest march

against the club owners.

0:20:450:20:47

Fans of West Ham have been planning

a protest march at London Stadium

0:20:480:20:52

over a long list of concerns

including issues about their new

0:20:520:20:55

home and their relationship

with the club's current owners.

0:20:550:20:58

With that in mind,

vice-chair Karren Brady met

0:20:580:21:03

with representatives

from 15 supporters organisations.

0:21:030:21:06

Those meetings between Karren Brady

and the fans groups led

0:21:060:21:10

to her writing this open letter

of nine pages dealing

0:21:100:21:13

with many of the issues.

0:21:130:21:18

Feeling they were now

being heard by the club,

0:21:180:21:20

one of the main groups behind

the march, now called

0:21:200:21:26

The Real West Ham Fans Group,

chose to cancel it.

0:21:260:21:28

Others who still wanted to hold

what they called a peaceful

0:21:280:21:31

and lawful march were asked

by Newham Council to postpone it

0:21:310:21:34

while they considered

a proposal that would be safe

0:21:340:21:36

for the participants.

0:21:360:21:37

Meanwhile, there are claims of abuse

and threats between the different

0:21:370:21:39

fans organisations.

0:21:390:21:43

Unfortunately there are a number

of different either accounts

0:21:430:21:47

or counter argument

as to what actually did or didn't

0:21:470:21:50

happen and there does seem to be

a lot of splintered or fractured

0:21:500:21:53

elements now to the support.

0:21:530:21:56

And there may still be protests

in the future if West Ham don't now

0:21:560:21:59

fulfil their long list of promises.

0:21:590:22:03

The resentment or the anger

or the frustration at the way

0:22:030:22:06

the club is going to continue to be

run, if it stays the way

0:22:060:22:10

it is at the moment,

will not subside based

0:22:100:22:13

upon the cancellation of a march.

0:22:130:22:17

But with the team's

Premier League future

0:22:170:22:22

far from guaranteed,

the fans' support for

0:22:220:22:23

the players is vital.

0:22:240:22:25

Every club you're at,

there's grievances against owners,

0:22:250:22:27

there's grievances against managers

or members of the club.

0:22:270:22:32

All you want to do is make

sure your club is in the right

0:22:320:22:36

position and hopefully we'll have

nearly 60,000 at the game again

0:22:360:22:38

tomorrow and they will

get behind the team.

0:22:380:22:42

West Ham will remember the great

Bobby Moore tomorrow,

0:22:420:22:46

something to unite the fans

and the club, for now.

0:22:460:22:48

Emma Jones, BBC London News.

0:22:480:22:51

They're the London dance group

who performed at the 2012

0:22:540:22:57

Paralympics alongside Coldplay.

0:22:570:22:59

Now they're taking their message

of 'how to be more

0:22:590:23:02

inclusive' to South Korea.

0:23:020:23:04

Candoco are going to be performing

as part of the cultural events

0:23:040:23:07

at the Winter Games.

0:23:070:23:11

Wendy Hurrell went to meet

them during rehearsals

0:23:110:23:13

before they head off.

0:23:130:23:15

Contemporary dance by Candoco.

0:23:150:23:19

For 27 years, this company has had

disabled and non-disabled

0:23:190:23:22

dancers performing together

on the same stage.

0:23:220:23:27

I enjoy the conversation around

disability, around body,

0:23:270:23:31

about what they're seeing on stage

and what is not seen

0:23:310:23:34

and I think that is a really

important part of Candoco.

0:23:340:23:36

In the rehearsal rooms

at Sadlers Wells, the final practice

0:23:360:23:39

for tonight and tomorrow's

double bill show.

0:23:390:23:44

We have different abilities,

conditions, so when a choreographer

0:23:440:23:49

comes into the company and works

with us, you know, they just

0:23:490:23:53

cannot make assumptions

about how we function.

0:23:530:23:59

We have a much more

collaborative environment.

0:23:590:24:01

We bring in as our tools,

my crutches or a wheelchair etc,

0:24:010:24:03

that's all part of who we are.

0:24:030:24:05

We make it our own because we all

dancers are a big part

0:24:050:24:08

of the creation process as well.

0:24:080:24:10

Then the whole company

is heading to Pyeongchang

0:24:100:24:12

for the Winter Paralympics.

0:24:120:24:14

It is so relevant globally

and where the UK stands in terms

0:24:140:24:18

of diversity is one place,

and we do visit places

0:24:180:24:21

where it is less prevalent.

0:24:210:24:24

We're going to Korea on Sunday?

0:24:240:24:32

I think we are going on Sunday!

0:24:320:24:37

My bag is packed over there.

0:24:370:24:41

Another chance to put

their inclusive message

0:24:410:24:44

on the world stage.

0:24:440:24:45

They performed with

Coldplay at the 2012

0:24:450:24:47

Paralympic closing ceremony.

0:24:470:24:52

There has been a huge shift that

I think affected us all.

0:24:520:24:56

The whole ecology is different now.

0:24:560:24:58

But I think there

is a long way to go.

0:24:580:25:02

Wendy Hurrell, BBC London News.

0:25:020:25:04

Let's get a check on the weekend

weather with Ben.

0:25:050:25:08

And not quite a scorcher.

0:25:080:25:10

But not far off given what we are

about recently. It will feel

0:25:140:25:18

different to a week ago but today

was one of those days where it is

0:25:180:25:22

you left for work without an

umbrella you might regret it on the

0:25:220:25:25

way home because it has been the

story of the weather going downhill.

0:25:250:25:29

You had to be out early to see any

brightness, there was some in

0:25:290:25:33

Stevenage earlier but by the

afternoon we had cloud coming in and

0:25:330:25:36

outbreaks of rain. The radar picture

shows what has been going on

0:25:360:25:42

clearly, the rain light and patchy

as it spread in this afternoon to

0:25:420:25:46

start with but it has now turned

heavy, not great if you're going out

0:25:460:25:49

in the next few hours. Some of the

rain is heavy and that will continue

0:25:490:25:55

to move northwards and eastwards

through the night. In the early

0:25:550:26:00

hours of Saturday things are drying

out a bit, maybe with some clear

0:26:000:26:04

spells and a lot of cloud but it

will not be cold, starting at seven,

0:26:040:26:10

eight, nine or 10 degrees. Some

cloud and shows to start with but

0:26:100:26:14

I'm hopeful it will break up and

that is when we could get some

0:26:140:26:17

sunshine. It is that sunshine that

will send the template is up, maybe

0:26:170:26:22

some rain coming into the West later

but if you get the sunshine, 14 or

0:26:220:26:30

15 degrees although it will be

fairly breezy. Through Saturday

0:26:300:26:35

night we look to the continent

because there is an area of heavy

0:26:350:26:38

rain that looks like it might spread

north weights, that looks like it

0:26:380:26:44

might avoid us but in Kent or East

London it could move in on the early

0:26:440:26:49

part of Sunday. On Sunday we are

likely to start with mist and fog

0:26:490:26:52

which should clear to leave some

sunshine. But some hefty showers

0:26:520:26:56

coming through, maybe the odd bit of

thunder and lightning but still

0:26:560:27:01

mild, 12 or 13 degrees. Can it last?

In a word, yes. Going into next week

0:27:010:27:10

we keep the double digit tempered is

that there will be some rain at

0:27:100:27:14

times both certainly a different

feeling.

0:27:140:27:16

A reminder of the headlines...

0:27:190:27:20

200 Army officers trained

in chemical warfare have been

0:27:200:27:22

deployed to Salisbury to help

the investigation into

0:27:220:27:24

the poisoning of a ex-Russian

spy and his daughter.

0:27:240:27:29

That's it.

0:27:290:27:34

There is more on the website,

Facebook page and on Twitter.

0:27:340:27:37

Asad Ahmad will be back later

during the ten o'clock news,

0:27:370:27:39

but for now, from everyone

on the team, have a lovely evening.

0:27:390:27:42

Goodbye.

0:27:420:27:44
