Here on BBC One, it's time

for the news where you are.

0:00:000:00:00

Good evening, I'm Asad Ahmad.

0:00:160:00:20

There's going to be a significant

increase in Police stop and search

0:00:200:00:23

activity this year aimed at reducing

knife crime on London's streets.

0:00:230:00:27

The controversial method, often

criticised for disproportionately

0:00:270:00:31

targeting ethnic minority groups,

today got the backing

0:00:310:00:33

of Mayor Sadeeq Khan.

0:00:360:00:38

But among those who think its a bad

idea are some of those directly

0:00:380:00:41

effected by the violence.

0:00:410:00:42

Karl Mercer has been

finding out why.

0:00:420:00:44

Patrick Boyce is only too aware

of the damage knives can do

0:00:440:00:47

in the hands of the wrong person.

0:00:470:00:48

So is Angeleen Hill.

0:00:480:00:49

Both Londoners whose families have

been badly damaged by a crime

0:00:490:00:52

that is on the increase again.

0:00:520:00:54

Today, Patrick is in the cafe

he runs in Brixton.

0:00:540:00:56

Are you OK?

0:00:560:00:58

This is where he spends

much of his time.

0:00:580:01:03

We've filmed him last year with his

son who was stabbed in the heart.

0:01:030:01:09

This woman is planning

a website for families

0:01:090:01:14

affected by knife crime.

0:01:140:01:20

What do they make

of the London Mayor?

0:01:200:01:22

The measures you are

making are counteracted

0:01:320:01:34

to what you are trying to do.

0:01:340:01:36

Stop and search will take it

away from the police.

0:01:360:01:39

They will not go to the police

when they have problems.

0:01:390:01:42

It will take us back

to youth against police.

0:01:420:01:48

I can understand the initiative.

0:01:480:01:54

It is good to make the public feel

safe but the reality is it

0:01:540:01:57

will not change the problem.

0:01:570:02:01

The reality is, why are these kids

walking about with knives?

0:02:010:02:04

Luther was 32.

0:02:040:02:06

There are a lot of victims

who are not young people.

0:02:060:02:10

City Hall refused requests

for interviews today,

0:02:100:02:15

we could not ask what the mayor

meant by a significant increase

0:02:150:02:25

tackling knife crime

is seen as a priority.

0:02:250:02:27

This video and a call for schools

to produce knife ones last week.

0:02:270:02:31

There are some who

welcomed the news.

0:02:310:02:33

Five years ago, one in ten stop

and searches resulted

0:02:330:02:35

in finding something.

0:02:360:02:38

Now the figure is about one

in three, which is loads better.

0:02:380:02:40

It is a tool we can use,

and an important tool.

0:02:400:02:43

The police will be wearing cameras,

so we can see what happens.

0:02:430:02:46

Cressida Dick has previously said

you were back an increase in stop

0:02:460:02:49

and search if it led

to lower knife crime.

0:02:490:02:54

The opponents of the mayor said it

will need to be done sensitively.

0:02:540:02:57

Young people feel victimised.

0:02:570:03:01

This will crush community policing,

which affects all crime in London.

0:03:010:03:07

Scotland Yard and the men know this

will have to be matched

0:03:070:03:11

by a drop in knife crime.

0:03:110:03:14

Scotland Yard and the mayor know it

will have to be matched by a drop in

0:03:140:03:18

knife crime.

0:03:180:03:20

If you're one of the thousands

of passengers hit by delays

0:03:200:03:23

on Southern or Thameslink trains,

you got an apology today from the

0:03:230:03:27

Transport Secretary, Chris Grayling.

0:03:270:03:29

But it might not be

the sorry you'd hoped for.

0:03:290:03:32

This was a sorry that blamed

unions for the problems,

0:03:320:03:37

while giving a pat on the back

to the government for

0:03:370:03:39

the work they're doing.

0:03:400:03:41

Here's our Transport

Correspondent Tom Edwards.

0:03:410:03:42

Unreliable, not value for money,

the worst service in the country.

0:03:420:03:45

It won't surprise many passengers

that today there's more damning

0:03:450:03:49

evidence on Govia Thameslink.

0:03:490:03:53

Blighted by industrial action

and a lack of understanding

0:03:530:03:55

from Government, at its worst,

only two thirds of

0:03:550:03:58

trains arrived on time.

0:03:580:04:03

A shabby train service?

0:04:030:04:05

The franchise covers Thameslink,

Southern and Great Northern services

0:04:050:04:08

and today's report outlines how 60%

of delays have been due

0:04:080:04:11

to the operator, mainly

because of industrial action

0:04:110:04:14

and a lack of crew.

0:04:140:04:17

Nearly 40% of delays

are down to Network Rail's

0:04:170:04:20

poor infrastructure.

0:04:200:04:22

I think from a passenger's point

of view, what they don't

0:04:220:04:26

want to hear is people passing

the buck and saying

0:04:260:04:28

it is someone else's fault.

0:04:280:04:31

What they want to know is that

action is being taken to sort this

0:04:310:04:36

out, and to make sure that they see

improvements in service.

0:04:360:04:39

The report also criticises

the Government for trying

0:04:390:04:41

to increase services

as well as introducing new trains

0:04:410:04:44

and getting rid of the guards,

leading to strikes.

0:04:440:04:48

The report says the Government

didn't know about a lack of drivers,

0:04:480:04:51

or the state of the infrastructure.

0:04:510:04:55

I think this report shows

the incompetence and the dogma

0:04:550:04:58

of the DfT and the Government

and seeking to put the blame

0:04:580:05:01

on the trade unions when they knew

they were going to cause this issue

0:05:010:05:05

is a false premise, and seeking

to blame the companies

0:05:050:05:08

who are forced to bid

for what they put out

0:05:080:05:10

there is a false premise.

0:05:100:05:12

If this is dogma,

the dogma has to change.

0:05:120:05:15

The Government says unions

are the main cause of the problems.

0:05:150:05:20

I make no apology for that huge

investment in the network.

0:05:200:05:27

The introduction of brand-new 12

coach trains all across the network.

0:05:270:05:31

What I do apologise

or is we were not able to avoid

0:05:310:05:35

the extraordinarily ill judged

actions by the trade

0:05:350:05:39

unions, who caused massive

trouble for passengers.

0:05:390:05:43

The report does say reliability

on the services is improving and it

0:05:430:05:49

wants the Government to learn

lessons when it sets

0:05:490:05:52

up other franchises.

0:05:520:05:56

Police have released CCTV images

of two teenagers they want to speak

0:05:560:05:59

to in connection with the death

of a shopkeeper in North London.

0:05:590:06:03

The boys are believed to have been

at the shop at the time

0:06:030:06:06

Mr Vijay Patel was attacked

in Mill Hill on Saturday night.

0:06:060:06:09

Detectives believe the teenagers

will have information that

0:06:090:06:11

could help in their investigation.

0:06:110:06:14

Another 16 year-old has been

charged with murder.

0:06:140:06:17

The Holocaust.

0:06:190:06:22

It claimed the lives

of six million Jews and hundreds

0:06:220:06:26

of thousands of others.

0:06:260:06:27

Today, one of the survivors

from Auchwitz, sat on a sofa

0:06:270:06:32

at a train station in London

to allow anyone who wanted to speak

0:06:320:06:35

to her to do just that.

0:06:350:06:36

Chris Rogers, spoke to her too.

0:06:360:06:38

In one of London's

busiest railway stations,

0:06:380:06:40

an 87-year-old woman is hoping

to have a chat with passers-by.

0:06:400:06:45

She's set up a sofa

in Liverpool Street and has only

0:06:450:06:48

a sign to encourage people to stop

and listen to her story.

0:06:480:06:52

They put us in ghettos

and from there they took us

0:06:520:06:58

to the camp, to Auschwitz.

0:06:580:07:02

Lily Ebert is a Holocaust survivor.

0:07:020:07:06

How much do you know

about the Holocaust?

0:07:060:07:09

We were not taught at school

but I educated myself.

0:07:090:07:13

In times where there is rising

racism and anti-Semitism,

0:07:130:07:18

her message is that we must live

together.

0:07:180:07:21

That is a powerful message.

0:07:210:07:24

It was heart-warming

that she was saying we are the same.

0:07:240:07:27

In the world at the moment,

it does not seem we are together,

0:07:270:07:33

united, and are the same.

0:07:330:07:34

The final photo of Lily

and her siblings in Hungary.

0:07:340:07:39

The family were sent to Auschwitz.

0:07:390:07:43

She and her two sisters were forced

into Labour but the rest

0:07:430:07:46

of her family were sent

to the gas chambers.

0:07:460:07:51

Does it upset you when people say

they face discrimination,

0:07:510:07:57

stigma and racism, that it

still goes on today?

0:07:570:08:00

Yes.

0:08:000:08:02

They should know.

0:08:020:08:04

The truth is, we look different

but it does not mean someone

0:08:040:08:10

is better or worse than you are.

0:08:100:08:16

They are only different.

0:08:160:08:22

This statue is a reminder

of the 10,000 unaccompanied children

0:08:220:08:26

who arrived at this train station

when they fled persecution

0:08:260:08:29

in their home towns in Germany,

Czechoslovakia and Austria.

0:08:290:08:33

After World War II very few

were able to be reunited

0:08:330:08:37

with their families.

0:08:370:08:39

Supported by the Holocaust

educational Trust, Lily tours

0:08:390:08:42

schools, sharing her story

with today's children in the hope

0:08:420:08:46

that the murder of six million Jews

is never forgotten or misunderstood.

0:08:460:08:52

Chris Rogers, BBC London News.

0:08:520:08:55

Triple Oscar winning actor,

Meryl Streep says that sexual

0:08:550:08:59

equality is going through a long

overdue period of change both

0:08:590:09:02

in America and on this side

of the Atlantic too.

0:09:020:09:05

Speaking to me tonight at the UK

premiere of 'The Post'

0:09:050:09:07

in Leicester Square where she plays

a newspaper publisher

0:09:070:09:15

in 1970's America,

0:09:150:09:17

Streep said men and women

won't be silenced anymore.

0:09:170:09:23

I think this change is seismic

because there's been an imbalance of

0:09:230:09:28

power in the human family for ever

and it's just reached the sort of

0:09:280:09:34

tipping point and I think it's

changing everywhere. We feel it

0:09:340:09:40

here, in Parliament, you know, in

our congress, there is a slush fund

0:09:400:09:44

paid for by the taxpayers to pay off

sexual harassment suits and to

0:09:440:09:49

silence people. It won't happen any

more. People won't be silent.

0:09:490:09:53

Meryl Streep speaking to me earlier.

0:09:530:09:55

Now the weather

forecast with Susan.

0:09:550:09:58

Now the weather

forecast with Susan.

0:09:580:09:59

Not a bad day today?

Not too bad in the end. A bit of

0:09:590:10:04

cloud, a gloomy start then the skies

brightened. The cloud didn't go

0:10:040:10:08

away. It mostly shifted north. If

you watch the satellite picture you

0:10:080:10:12

can see what happened in the

afternoon. The cloud is pushing back

0:10:120:10:15

in from the north. Actually outside

at the moment, the skies are pretty

0:10:150:10:20

overcast and there's going to be a

lot of low cloud about. Misty and

0:10:200:10:25

murky conditions and drizzly rain

coming in by the end of the night. A

0:10:250:10:29

cool feel, rural lows, two, three

degrees and, if we get a few breaks,

0:10:290:10:34

we may see temperatures dipping down

closer to freezing. A chilly start

0:10:340:10:37

to Thursday. Drizzly rain around

during the morning. It will be a

0:10:370:10:41

grey start. Hopefully we may see

something a little brighter come the

0:10:410:10:45

afternoon but we'll never really

shake off the cloud. Our top

0:10:450:10:49

temperatures, seven or eight. Friday

and Saturday, pretty similar as

0:10:490:10:53

well. Thick cloud on Friday and some

patches of mist and murk. If you are

0:10:530:10:58

travelling further afield in the

0:10:580:11:00
