and on BBC One we now join the BBC's news teams where you are.

:00:00.:00:00.

Hello and welcome to Tuesday's programme.

:00:00.:00:00.

Drugged, suffocated and dumped in a septic tank -

:00:00.:00:09.

a court hears this children's author was murdered by her partner

:00:10.:00:12.

An end to cheap migrant labour undercutting local workers -

:00:13.:00:18.

that was the promise from Jeremy Corbyn today,

:00:19.:00:20.

but what does it mean for our region?

:00:21.:00:28.

The Cambridge drugs company in line for a multi-million dollar

:00:29.:00:31.

investment from the Bill Gates foundation.

:00:32.:00:37.

And Reginald James Watson, an old soldier with no surviving relatives

:00:38.:00:40.

gets a fitting sendoff. She was a much loved children's

:00:41.:00:49.

author with a ?4 million fortune, But a court heard today how

:00:50.:00:54.

Helen Bailey was drugged and dumped in the cesspit of her home

:00:55.:01:01.

by her partner, who then The jury at St Albans Crown Court

:01:02.:01:04.

was told that Ian Stewart then sat back and watched as police

:01:05.:01:15.

searched for his fiancee. He denies all

:01:16.:01:18.

the charges against him. Our reporter

:01:19.:01:19.

Nicola Haseler was in court. The prosecution said today that it

:01:20.:01:33.

was a long planned and deliberate killing, motivated by money. It is

:01:34.:01:37.

claimed Ian Stewart killed Helen Bailey and let the police carry out

:01:38.:01:41.

a futile missing persons search until her body was found three

:01:42.:01:47.

months later. It is the prosecution's case that Ian Stewart

:01:48.:01:50.

had been secretly drugging Helen Bailey with sleeping pills in the

:01:51.:01:54.

months before she died. Records show that Helen Bailey had googled, why

:01:55.:02:00.

do I keep falling asleep? They were due to be married, both widowers.

:02:01.:02:04.

The prosecution claimed that on the day of Helen's disappearance last

:02:05.:02:08.

April, Ian Stewart probably suffocated her while she was sedated

:02:09.:02:12.

by sleeping pills. He moved her body to the garage and dumped it in the

:02:13.:02:17.

cesspit below, the jury were told. Along with her beloved dog, Boris, a

:02:18.:02:24.

pillow case and a dog toy. Later in the afternoon, Ian Stewart accessed

:02:25.:02:29.

her bank account and transferred ?4000 to his. Four days later, Ian

:02:30.:02:33.

Stewart reported his partner has missing telling police she had left

:02:34.:02:38.

a note indicating that she wanted some time alone. A huge search

:02:39.:02:43.

began. As you can imagine this has been an extremely difficult time for

:02:44.:02:47.

our family, and as more time passes, since she was last seen, the more

:02:48.:02:53.

concerned we become. Helen Bailey was the author of several popular

:02:54.:02:57.

children's books. After her first husband died suddenly while on

:02:58.:03:00.

holiday, she started writing about grief. My husband died in an

:03:01.:03:06.

accident in Barbados in February 2011, and when I got back to the UK

:03:07.:03:12.

I tried to write about it. I found I was completely blocked with grief.

:03:13.:03:17.

It was not until July that Helen's body was found in the cesspit.

:03:18.:03:21.

Forensic analysis of her hair revealed she had been given sleeping

:03:22.:03:26.

pills for some time. Ian Stewart is charged with murder, preventing the

:03:27.:03:30.

legal burial of her body, fraud and perverting the course of justice. He

:03:31.:03:36.

denies the charges. After Helen Bailey disappeared, Ian

:03:37.:03:40.

Stewart carried on sending texts to her phone and made an appeal for her

:03:41.:03:45.

to return home, so he is also charged with perverting the course

:03:46.:03:49.

of justice for what the prosecution described as the Charente of

:03:50.:03:53.

deceiving the police and the local community, who were all searching

:03:54.:03:58.

for the missing water. -- the charade. Tomorrow we expect to hear

:03:59.:03:59.

from the first witness. A section of the M1

:04:00.:04:03.

in Northamptonshire was closed this morning after a man's body

:04:04.:04:06.

was found on the carriageway. It was discovered in the early hours

:04:07.:04:08.

of this morning on the northbound carriageway

:04:09.:04:11.

near the Watford Gap services, The person is believed to have been

:04:12.:04:13.

hit by several vehicles. Police are asking for anyone with

:04:14.:04:17.

any information to contact them. Two brothers have gone on trial

:04:18.:04:29.

in connection with the death of a woman whose body lay

:04:30.:04:32.

undiscovered for 12 years. Pensioners Joseph and Daniel Doherty

:04:33.:04:35.

face a total of seven charges between them,

:04:36.:04:38.

including concealing the body The mother of three

:04:39.:04:40.

disappeared in 2003. Her remains were discovered

:04:41.:04:46.

in a garden in Luton in 2015. Next, the plight of tenants

:04:47.:04:50.

in Peterborough who are losing their homes to make way

:04:51.:04:58.

for homeless people The city's MP, Stewart Jackson,

:04:59.:05:01.

called a special debate, Our political reporter

:05:02.:05:06.

Tom Barton was watching. On the platform for the ten .09 to

:05:07.:05:22.

King's Cross, Jelena Stevic on her way to Westminster to see MPs

:05:23.:05:28.

debating the situation that is affecting her and her neighbours at

:05:29.:05:31.

St Michael's gate. The whole street was bought last year by a new

:05:32.:05:36.

landlord who struck a deal with Peterborough City Council to use the

:05:37.:05:39.

houses as a commendation for homeless people. Living most tenants

:05:40.:05:46.

having to find someone new to live. Jelena arrived in London, keen to

:05:47.:05:49.

see the Government take action. Low-mac I want them to acknowledge

:05:50.:05:52.

that this is wrong, it is deplorable. It is despicable and

:05:53.:05:58.

that they care about the people of this country, because this will

:05:59.:06:02.

affect us all, it will affect you, anybody else, your friends and

:06:03.:06:05.

family, somebody will be affected with this situation down the road.

:06:06.:06:11.

Can I thank the Speaker Laika The debate Jelena was in Westminster to

:06:12.:06:14.

hear, called by the MP Stewart Jackson. Limato would like to

:06:15.:06:18.

apologise that I could did not do more to help my constituents are

:06:19.:06:23.

Bifield to extension -- to a certain extent that I am the system have let

:06:24.:06:28.

them down. It is unfair, morally repugnant, and I hope this debate

:06:29.:06:30.

and the Minister's response will make sure that two and tense and

:06:31.:06:35.

purposes, decent people are not treated like this again.

:06:36.:06:39.

The Housing Minister was critical of both the landlord and the council in

:06:40.:06:47.

how they have behaved. There was an Alice in Wonderland quality to the

:06:48.:06:51.

situation, where a group of people have essentially been told they need

:06:52.:06:54.

to leave their homes and have been made homeless in many cases, in

:06:55.:06:57.

order to provide housing for the homeless. It seems a highly

:06:58.:07:05.

irrational thing to do, but for a company and the City Council. It is

:07:06.:07:09.

almost certainly too late for the Government to do anything to change

:07:10.:07:12.

the situation affecting Jelena and her neighbours, but she hopes the

:07:13.:07:16.

law can be changed to prevent anything like this happening again.

:07:17.:07:17.

Did the Minister Pledge any actual action? As far as the residents of

:07:18.:07:30.

St Michael's gate and so still, really, the speech was cold comfort.

:07:31.:07:36.

There was a promise to do more to stop situations like this from

:07:37.:07:39.

happening in future. Part of what makes properties like St Michael's

:07:40.:07:45.

Gate attractive to landlords to use homeless accommodation is that they

:07:46.:07:47.

can charge a significant management fee on top of the rent. The

:07:48.:07:51.

Government said they are changing the way that system works in the

:07:52.:07:55.

hope of stopping this sort of thing from arising in the future. But

:07:56.:07:59.

there were no promises over the rights of tenants to stay in

:08:00.:08:04.

properties when new landlords by them, as has happened in St

:08:05.:08:10.

Michael's gate. And some of those tenants are having a meeting

:08:11.:08:16.

tonight? That's right. The residents association in palm oil, --

:08:17.:08:27.

Parmwell. They will be attended by the Chief Executive Peterborough

:08:28.:08:30.

City Council. We understand that she is not expecting to talk directly

:08:31.:08:36.

about St Michael's Gate, she is expected to speak instead about how

:08:37.:08:41.

the council can work more closely with residents, given the strength

:08:42.:08:45.

of feeling, it is unlikely the topic will not come up. Tom, thank you.

:08:46.:08:50.

And we will have more from that meeting in our latest news at 10:30.

:08:51.:08:53.

The Labour Party will campaign to stop cheap migrant labour

:08:54.:08:55.

That was the message from party leader Jeremy Corbyn today.

:08:56.:08:58.

In a key speech to supporters in Peterborough, he also said

:08:59.:09:01.

that EU migrants who are already here will have

:09:02.:09:03.

Our political correspondent Andrew Sinclair is there.

:09:04.:09:18.

Well, 56% of people across the East voted to leave the European Union in

:09:19.:09:24.

the referendum last year. 61% of them here in Peterborough. Jeremy

:09:25.:09:28.

Corbyn and most of the Labour Party were on the side of Remain. This is

:09:29.:09:34.

an area where they have struggled for support so a lot of interest

:09:35.:09:37.

this afternoon in Jeremy Corbyn's speech, his first big one of the New

:09:38.:09:42.

Year. A speech which could determine the fortunes of Labour in this part

:09:43.:09:46.

of the world. Labour and its leader are undergoing

:09:47.:09:50.

a bit of a New Year rebrand. This afternoon's speech was billed as Mr

:09:51.:09:54.

Corbyn's big response to the Brexit vote. Labour access those challenges

:09:55.:10:00.

that voters have given us. Among his big ideas, more money for the NHS, a

:10:01.:10:05.

crackdown on high levels of pay and yes, a new policy on immigration.

:10:06.:10:09.

The advance briefing was that he would back a restriction on the

:10:10.:10:12.

number of people coming to Britain. But he did not say that. Instead, he

:10:13.:10:16.

spoke about the importance of migrants to our economy and said

:10:17.:10:21.

improving local services was the answer. The question of underfunding

:10:22.:10:27.

of services is crucial, in this city, for example, this council here

:10:28.:10:31.

seems to be more interested in selling off council housing to a

:10:32.:10:34.

private sector organisation, rather than housing the people who are

:10:35.:10:38.

homeless. So you say if there was more funding in services, people

:10:39.:10:43.

would not be so concerned? I think sometimes, there are issues

:10:44.:10:47.

surrounding social -- shortages of services in which people are

:10:48.:10:51.

unfairly blame. It is generally accepted that fears about the

:10:52.:10:54.

pressures caused by immigration is worried the reason for the large

:10:55.:10:57.

Brexit vote in use. The Leave campaign see the solution is to

:10:58.:11:01.

limit numbers. Mr Corbyn believes more support for local councils is

:11:02.:11:07.

the answer. I think it is reassuring voters we are listening. There was a

:11:08.:11:12.

vote in June and people have had their say. We need to make sure that

:11:13.:11:16.

we as a party of the people are listening to what they are saying.

:11:17.:11:21.

And reports of voters in Peterborough? I think we should put

:11:22.:11:26.

a cap on it, but I think they are hard workers, some of that come

:11:27.:11:31.

here. There are a lot of jobs that perhaps we do not want to do, that

:11:32.:11:37.

people do do. You will have to cut numbers, there is no other way to

:11:38.:11:45.

control it. He is still speaking about immigration and its benefits,

:11:46.:11:47.

and he hopes it will win Labour new supporters.

:11:48.:11:51.

How significant was at that Jeremy Corbyn came to Peterborough today? I

:11:52.:11:56.

think it is significant for a couple reasons. He came to a major Leave

:11:57.:12:02.

city in a major Leave area to talk about Brexit. So you might as well

:12:03.:12:06.

come here if you're going to talk about Brexit. Secondly, if Labour

:12:07.:12:11.

want to stand any chance of forming a government, it needs to start

:12:12.:12:14.

winning seats in this part of the world again. It needs to start

:12:15.:12:21.

winning seats in places like Stevenage, Bedford, Milton Keynes.

:12:22.:12:23.

It got Cambridge last time but it should have also got votes in

:12:24.:12:28.

Peterborough. There is still a big disconnect between Labour and many

:12:29.:12:32.

of its supporters, so today was partly about Labour coming back here

:12:33.:12:36.

and saying to voters, look, we have not forgotten you, we would like you

:12:37.:12:38.

to start taking us seriously again. A new all-weather horse racing

:12:39.:12:40.

course could be built at Newmarket, allowing training and racing

:12:41.:12:43.

all year round. The Jockey Club is preparing

:12:44.:12:45.

a planning application for the track on its land at The Links,

:12:46.:12:48.

providing easy access for the thousands of horses that

:12:49.:12:50.

use its nearby training grounds. If approved, it would replace Camden

:12:51.:13:02.

Park's or whether operations and the site would be developed for housing.

:13:03.:13:04.

More at 10:30, but now, let's joint Stewart and Susie

:13:05.:13:07.

They are now driving for Uber even though the company has no devices to

:13:08.:13:21.

operate in Southend. Southend Council told me how unhappy they are

:13:22.:13:26.

with the situation. Two individuals who we know about

:13:27.:13:31.

have had their licences revoked in Southend and have been licensed by

:13:32.:13:35.

TfL and are working for Uber. What do you think about that?

:13:36.:13:40.

It is a scandal of epidemic proportions, it cannot be right back

:13:41.:13:45.

one licensing authority finds them not fit to hold a licence, yet TfL

:13:46.:13:52.

have seen fit to give them a license.

:13:53.:13:55.

TfL told us these were serious issues which were under

:13:56.:13:59.

investigation. A spokesperson for Uber said they would welcome more

:14:00.:14:02.

transparent data sharing between licensing authorities.

:14:03.:14:11.

What they are doing, there is no point having a local licensing you

:14:12.:14:16.

might as well go to the cheapest area then drive you like.

:14:17.:14:21.

The cabbies here say they are worried the fact drivers previously

:14:22.:14:26.

banned are now back in the resort could put passengers in danger and

:14:27.:14:29.

are calling on the London Mayor to take action.

:14:30.:14:37.

You're watching Look East, with Stewart and me.

:14:38.:14:39.

Stay with us for action from last night's Cup tie

:14:40.:14:42.

Alex will tell us about a freezing end to the week.

:14:43.:14:46.

Local people make sure a war veteran gets a fitting sendoff.

:14:47.:14:57.

The Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates is giving $9 million to a medical

:14:58.:15:01.

company in Cambridge which is trying to find cures for

:15:02.:15:04.

The grant is coming from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

:15:05.:15:11.

The cash is going to a Cambridge lab called Kymab which is researching

:15:12.:15:14.

vaccines for diseases such as HIV and malaria.

:15:15.:15:16.

The Gates' involvement will ensure that any treatments are shared among

:15:17.:15:18.

Scientists working in this Cambridge laboratory are taking the first

:15:19.:15:28.

steps to create vaccines that could prevent some of the world's

:15:29.:15:30.

Work is expensive and can take years which is why bosses at Kymab

:15:31.:15:35.

are overwhelmed after being awarded $9 million by Bill

:15:36.:15:37.

I think it is very special because the foundation doesn't

:15:38.:15:49.

It wants to know it is going to get high-quality science.

:15:50.:15:53.

So it is an indictment how good the quality

:15:54.:15:55.

And how what we do at Kymab can really contribute to the mission

:15:56.:16:02.

of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

:16:03.:16:04.

The company has developed its own way of producing

:16:05.:16:06.

and testing antibodies, the proteins that help ward off

:16:07.:16:08.

infections, by creating genetically-engineered mice.

:16:09.:16:10.

The mice mimic the production of antibodies in humans which helps

:16:11.:16:12.

Vaccine that could cure whooping cough normally

:16:13.:16:15.

It's now being seen in adults and experts say

:16:16.:16:22.

that is because current cures aren't working.

:16:23.:16:25.

We think that is because the vaccine received as a child is waning.

:16:26.:16:29.

What we are trying to do is generate some antibodies that can

:16:30.:16:31.

be given as a therapy, but also as a way of looking at

:16:32.:16:35.

vaccine design against the bacteria that causes whooping cough.

:16:36.:16:46.

There is a certain cachet and allure about attracting big-dollar

:16:47.:16:49.

The billionaire philanthropist is widely considered to be the world's

:16:50.:16:55.

Money from the Microsoft founder has enabled Kymab to grow rapidly.

:16:56.:17:02.

An initial $20 million investment has seen the company

:17:03.:17:05.

grow from a handful of scientists to more than 120

:17:06.:17:07.

employees using state-of-the-art lab equipment.

:17:08.:17:10.

Researchers here say that money will enable them to be the first

:17:11.:17:13.

to discover vaccines, and be the best.

:17:14.:17:15.

Mousumi Bakshi, BBC Look East, Cambridge.

:17:16.:17:26.

Let's get the thoughts of Martyn Postle who runs a biotech

:17:27.:17:29.

This deal is about philanthropy but also business because the company

:17:30.:17:43.

will be able to commercialise those axioms in developed countries?

:17:44.:17:48.

That is true. It doesn't matter how philanthropic the founder is, the

:17:49.:17:53.

people who invest are generally not philanthropic but financial

:17:54.:17:56.

investors. All investment in our biotech sector

:17:57.:18:00.

is to be welcomed. How worried are cos it might be harder to attract

:18:01.:18:05.

because of Brexit? For companies like this, at least in

:18:06.:18:10.

the medium term, it probably won't have any affect. Cambridge is still

:18:11.:18:15.

the Centre for European biotech and still very successful in attracting

:18:16.:18:18.

overseas investment. But there are risks, probably the most is the

:18:19.:18:26.

retention of scientists, about 40% of the science base in Cambridge are

:18:27.:18:30.

non-UK nationals, not all from the EU. I have heard stories about

:18:31.:18:34.

difficulties in attracting scientists from overseas to work in

:18:35.:18:39.

Cambridge because of the uncertainty as to whether their spouse will be

:18:40.:18:42.

able to get a job. On the other side of the coin, what

:18:43.:18:48.

about the weakness of the pound? Is that having any effect on the

:18:49.:18:51.

sector? It is, it is good news for me, the

:18:52.:18:57.

service companies like consultancies and contract research, we find we

:18:58.:19:01.

are even more connected than before. Good news for the service sector.

:19:02.:19:06.

Like so many industries we hear about post Brexit, you are suffering

:19:07.:19:11.

from the Institute of not knowing when and what is going to happen.

:19:12.:19:16.

What would help the sector, what would you like to hear from the

:19:17.:19:21.

Government? First, exactly what the Government

:19:22.:19:24.

position will be in terms of overseas scientists not having to

:19:25.:19:31.

jump through hoops to get visas. Secondly, when it comes to start up

:19:32.:19:37.

companies, the spin offs from university, who until now have

:19:38.:19:41.

relied on investment from the EU investment fund, how exactly the

:19:42.:19:45.

Government will make up the money they can no longer access.

:19:46.:19:48.

And our two teams left in the FA Cup this year now know

:19:49.:19:52.

Norwich will be at home to Arsenal if they can beat

:19:53.:19:57.

Ipswich will be at home to Brighton if they can beat Lincoln.

:19:58.:20:01.

Last night, Cambridge United threatened

:20:02.:20:02.

But ultimately the League Two side came up just short.

:20:03.:20:05.

For fans of Cambridge United, a game they would not miss for the world.

:20:06.:20:21.

For some top clubs, the FA Cup has lost a little of its magic.

:20:22.:20:28.

But at this level, it still means everything.

:20:29.:20:31.

Fingers crossed, we have good league form.

:20:32.:20:33.

Hold to half-time, get ten minutes then, bang, start again.

:20:34.:20:40.

League Two side to knock out the Championship side?

:20:41.:20:42.

Leeds made eight changes to their starting line-up,

:20:43.:20:50.

Possibly not if the first half was anything to go by.

:20:51.:20:54.

Cambridge United looked more determined, in truth,

:20:55.:20:55.

they dominated and thoroughly deserved to go in front.

:20:56.:21:01.

A goal neither nor the fans will ever forget.

:21:02.:21:09.

But if the first period was one-sided so was the second.

They drew level and the winning goal followed shortly after.

:21:13.:21:20.

A rousing Cup tie for half the game, it looked

:21:21.:21:22.

Leeds showed their Championship class in the second half

:21:23.:21:27.

The first 20, 30 minutes it was all Cambridge, it was brilliant.

:21:28.:21:34.

We did well for ages and then there were lots of gaps.

:21:35.:21:40.

Two years ago, Cambridge made more than ?1 million from their Cup run.

:21:41.:21:47.

A third-round exit this year but another boost

:21:48.:21:49.

Financially it was huge and it came after nine years

:21:50.:21:57.

The club is in a good way and financially

:21:58.:22:02.

This allows us to maybe make one or two signings in January

:22:03.:22:07.

And accelerate the continued growth of the club.

:22:08.:22:10.

We want more of this, and to put ourselves

:22:11.:22:12.

We want to make sure that at the end of the month we are stronger for it.

:22:13.:22:20.

The focus now is on winning promotion.

:22:21.:22:21.

That means, for the 8,000 inside last night, they have another

:22:22.:22:24.

200 mourners packed a village church in Norfolk today to pay

:22:25.:22:32.

Reginald Watson lived in Ormesby St Margaret.

:22:33.:22:37.

He was 90 years old when he died in hospital.

:22:38.:22:40.

But today, after a campaign on social media, he was given

:22:41.:22:44.

So different from how it might have been.

:22:45.:22:57.

He'd put aside funds for his funeral but there were no relatives

:22:58.:23:00.

A public health burial in an unmarked grave was a possibility.

:23:01.:23:04.

:23:15.:23:16.

Amongst the 200 mourners, some who knew Reginald,

:23:17.:23:28.

others as the vicar put it who had come to give something

:23:29.:23:31.

back for his service to his community and country.

:23:32.:23:34.

As a former serviceman, I served in the Royal Air Force,

:23:35.:23:37.

the thought of someone dying alone, being committed alone

:23:38.:23:40.

As a former serviceman, Reginald had a lot of family.

:23:41.:23:49.

It is a brotherhood regardless of what capacity we may have served,

:23:50.:23:52.

Because of him, we have the freedoms we have today.

:23:53.:24:03.

Hugh Taylor, whose father also served in the King's Rifle Corps,

was wearing his blazer, KRC badge, and war medal

:24:07.:24:08.

I walked into this church together with some colleagues

from the Royal British Legion, thinking that we were

:24:33.:24:34.

and ensure he had the sendoff he deserved.

A rare photograph, Reginald at the age of four with a neighbour

:24:39.:24:41.

Celebrated today, a quiet man, a hard worker, a perfect gentleman,

Some fine weather across the region, this is a beautiful photograph

:25:26.:25:32.

evening. Through the night there could be spots of patchy rain as the

:25:33.:25:36.

weather front moves through. For most of us, no lower than 5 degrees.

:25:37.:25:45.

But it may be lower than these alleys where there are breaks in the

:25:46.:25:50.

cloud. Patchy rain first thing and strengthening winds, this weather

system brings a change. Behind it much colder air is tucked in. The

:25:56.:26:00.

main feature will be that strengthening north-westerly wind

:26:01.:26:04.

which will make it feel cold. But it is a mild start with highs of 11

:26:05.:26:10.

degrees. The weather front moves through briskly. Brighter skies with

:26:11.:26:17.

sunshine. Mainly dry. Certainly the strength of the wind will be a

:26:18.:26:22.

feature through the day. 10 degrees through the morning. By the

:26:23.:26:27.

afternoon, that cold air digs in, more like 7 degrees, feeling cold,

:26:28.:26:33.

and a cold night with a frost likely. That will continue for a few

:26:34.:26:39.

days. Looking ahead to Thursday, some interesting weather. This

:26:40.:26:43.

weather system comes in from the south bringing us some rain

:26:44.:26:49.

essentially. It may turn to sleet or snow. Some uncertainty what will

:26:50.:26:54.

happen. Mainly a brain event at the moment but the potential is there.

:26:55.:27:03.

Collection -- Rain. A dry day on Thursday. Long spells of hazy

:27:04.:27:08.

sunshine and high-level cloud. Later, the rainbow push through with

the potential to turn to sleet or snow. I will give you an update

tomorrow. Looking perish in the cold by the end of the week. Fine weather

:27:18.:27:22.

on Friday and Saturday but a strong north-westerly wind on Friday with

:27:23.:27:28.

gales on the coast. Some sharp frosts. A colder theme on the way.
