A woman from west Hampstead, who's serving a prison sentence

:00:20.:00:26.

in Iran, has had her appeal against a five-year sentence rejected.

:00:27.:00:29.

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe - was working for a charity

:00:30.:00:32.

based in Canary Wharf - belonging to a mass-media company.

:00:33.:00:35.

She was arrested with her baby in Tehran in April

:00:36.:00:38.

on allegations of "security offences".

:00:39.:00:41.

Her husband, Richard - who the Iranians accuse

:00:42.:00:44.

of being a spy - spoke to our Correspondent Nick Higham,

:00:45.:00:47.

about how he felt on hearing today's decision.

:00:48.:00:51.

There was a sinking feeling when today, the bad news came.

:00:52.:00:54.

Have you managed to talk to her and if so, what was her reaction?

:00:55.:00:59.

Certainly her mum and dad are devastated.

:01:00.:01:12.

What about the suggestion that she worked for BBC Farsi.

:01:13.:01:15.

The BBC's Persian television service which she is supposed to have

:01:16.:01:18.

So before she worked for Thompson Reuters Foundation,

:01:19.:01:28.

way back when she first finished uni, she worked for a year for BBC

:01:29.:01:31.

Media Action, the BBC charity, they did a training project

:01:32.:01:35.

She would have been the admin assistant on that, so booking

:01:36.:01:41.

tickets and chasing kids to do their homework

:01:42.:01:45.

That's obviously bigged up hugely, so that now she is the head

:01:46.:01:50.

Given that in this most recent court hearing,

:01:51.:02:00.

the fact of your campaign and the coverage it's generated

:02:01.:02:02.

was adduced of evidence of her, or implied evidence of her guilt,

:02:03.:02:06.

I think, if I'm honest, it's what she would have wanted.

:02:07.:02:18.

I think it's obviously nonsense the idea because someone

:02:19.:02:20.

is protesting their innocence, they must be guilty.

:02:21.:02:22.

Now it feels like, gosh, there is a whole new phase

:02:23.:02:24.

and I need to find some new energy and a new strategy to go forward

:02:25.:02:26.

A charity based in east London, believes health officials aren't

:02:27.:02:31.

doing enough to encourage women to have smear tests.

:02:32.:02:33.

Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust says over the past five years -

:02:34.:02:35.

there's been a small but significant drop in the number of

:02:36.:02:37.

A smear of lipstick to encourage women to get their smear test.

:02:38.:02:41.

These selfies are part of the campaign highlighting

:02:42.:02:44.

the importance of cervical screening in preventing screening

:02:45.:02:46.

The tests are offered to women aged 25 to 64,

:02:47.:02:50.

but the numbers attending have been falling.

:02:51.:02:53.

There are a lot of people that perhaps don't know my history...

:02:54.:02:55.

Ros from Guildford knows more than most how important

:02:56.:02:57.

I had been going for my smears as I should have been,

:02:58.:03:01.

and luckily for me an abnormality was picked up and that turned out

:03:02.:03:04.

So, I think it's so important for other women to go

:03:05.:03:08.

when they are called up, or just to keep an eye

:03:09.:03:10.

I was very lucky. and to make an apartment and go.

:03:11.:03:19.

If that had not been picked up than I might not be here today.

:03:20.:03:23.

Results from the latest survey by the charity Jo's Cervical

:03:24.:03:25.

Cancer Trust, suggests half of women aged 25 to 39

:03:26.:03:28.

More than a quarter said they were too embarrassed.

:03:29.:03:32.

A similar number said they were worried about pain,

:03:33.:03:34.

and almost one in ten said they had never had a test.

:03:35.:03:37.

At the moment in England for example, the numbers of women

:03:38.:03:39.

It is dropping across the UK, that is hugely concerning

:03:40.:03:43.

because if it carries on with the more women diagnosed,

:03:44.:03:45.

and sadly see more women passing away and we just

:03:46.:03:47.

NHS England says it is particularly worried about the fall in young

:03:48.:03:52.

women getting smears in the last few years because that has been linked

:03:53.:03:56.

with a rise in the number of women under 35 getting cervical cancer.

:03:57.:04:00.

It says it's working on projects to encourage more

:04:01.:04:04.

women to take the test, that could prove to be life-saving.

:04:05.:04:12.

Now the weather forecast from Elizabeth.

:04:13.:04:14.

Good evening. Another widespread sharp frost forming overnight, along

:04:15.:04:22.

:04:41.:04:44.

Good evening. If you are dreading the trudge back to work in the
