Labours Shadow Chancellor hits the road in Luton as election

:00:00.:00:10.

When I campaign, I go to every seat Labour, Labour or Tory. People need

:00:11.:00:19.

to know our message. -- lip. Debenhams closes it's distribution

:00:20.:00:22.

centre in Northampton - A new hi tech cycle hire scheme

:00:23.:00:24.

launches in Cambridge but will it mean bikes are abandoned

:00:25.:00:31.

across the city? This is then who is hoping to break

:00:32.:00:38.

a world record on the London Marathon this weekend and into the

:00:39.:00:43.

Guinness book of records. Go get them, then.

:00:44.:00:50.

Labour began their election campaign in Luton today with a visit

:00:51.:00:55.

from Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell.

:00:56.:00:58.

He was supporting Luton North MP Kelvin Hopkins

:00:59.:01:00.

With both Luton seats Labour strongholds, why begin

:01:01.:01:10.

Marching to battle at the very start of this 49 day election campaign.

:01:11.:01:16.

Shadow Chancellor John McDonald here in Luton North with MP Kelvin

:01:17.:01:19.

This is all down to you over the next couple of weeks.

:01:20.:01:31.

This is one of only three Labour seats in our region.

:01:32.:01:34.

Labour won this seat by a comfortable

:01:35.:01:35.

The aim today and for the next seven weeks is to make

:01:36.:01:39.

sure those who voted Labour stick with Labour.

:01:40.:01:42.

After a warm reception inside, it was a soggy story outside.

:01:43.:01:49.

On the campaign Trail to meet voters.

:01:50.:01:56.

In seven weeks, we'll have a Labour Government.

:01:57.:01:58.

I vote Labour and I'm still going to vote Labour

:01:59.:02:01.

When I came here in 2001, I was so happy with this

:02:02.:02:06.

I was earning less money, but I was happy with that.

:02:07.:02:11.

And now I am earning more than that, but I still not happy.

:02:12.:02:16.

In 2015, the constituency of Luton North had a

:02:17.:02:22.

Labour in Luton South, a slimmer majority of 5,700.

:02:23.:02:28.

You should never take people for granted.

:02:29.:02:30.

She has called this election I think for party political

:02:31.:02:34.

purposes, not for the interests of the country and she has seen the

:02:35.:02:37.

polls and I think she is taking people for granted.

:02:38.:02:40.

That is why when I campaign, I go to every seat whether

:02:41.:02:44.

it is Labour, liberal or Tory because people need to know what our

:02:45.:02:47.

Today, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn promised

:02:48.:02:57.

to put power and wealth back in the hands of the people.

:02:58.:03:00.

We, yes we, will prove the Establishment experts

:03:01.:03:03.

And change the direction of this election.

:03:04.:03:05.

I have never been part of the establishment.

:03:06.:03:07.

I have always campaigned on that basis.

:03:08.:03:12.

I have spoken my mind, or I have voted according to

:03:13.:03:15.

Sometimes not with the whips in my party.

:03:16.:03:19.

But do those who voted Labour last time believe the party can deliver?

:03:20.:03:27.

I vote Labour, I have always voted Labour.

:03:28.:03:30.

I think I am going to carry on dealing with them a lot.

:03:31.:03:34.

I have been doing it for years, and I think

:03:35.:03:36.

All I have done is actually voted for Labour.

:03:37.:03:40.

So fingers crossed, Labour in the next

:03:41.:03:43.

Labour's own supporters here may be confident

:03:44.:03:45.

The bigger battle is convincing the rest

:03:46.:03:49.

Andrew, why start the campaign in Luton? Two reasons. Labour knows it

:03:50.:04:07.

has a fight on its hands and it has two shore up its votes. Why not

:04:08.:04:11.

start into seats which have always been Labour? Kelvin Hopkins is a

:04:12.:04:18.

long-standing friend and colleague of John McDonald, so why not pay him

:04:19.:04:23.

a visit? The second reason is campaign tactics. In every election,

:04:24.:04:28.

the two main parties get very excited about the M1 corridor. Seats

:04:29.:04:33.

in Luton, Milton Keynes, Stevenage, Bedford, Northampton, Corby. These

:04:34.:04:37.

are classic swing seats. Labour and the Conservatives fight over these.

:04:38.:04:43.

You can wind over voters in these seats, you will probably stand a

:04:44.:04:48.

good chance of winning the election. We will see more campaigning in the

:04:49.:04:53.

seat? Certainly by Labour. The Conservatives do not seem to be so

:04:54.:04:57.

worried about these. They point out that when they were one, the Tory

:04:58.:05:03.

vote in all those seats went up in 2015. Since then, Labour's poll lead

:05:04.:05:07.

has fallen. They are not worried. Labour believes that the message on

:05:08.:05:12.

the NHS, on fair taxation, giving a good deal to hard-working people

:05:13.:05:15.

will go down well with voters in these areas and will be paying a lot

:05:16.:05:21.

of attention to the M1. Another part of our region which Labour is

:05:22.:05:25.

reworking on now as Cambridge. Talk today of moving extra resources into

:05:26.:05:30.

Cambridge. Very concerned that they have a battle on their hands there.

:05:31.:05:32.

Debenhams has announced plans to close its major distribution

:05:33.:05:42.

centre in Northampton, putting two 220 jobs at risk.

:05:43.:05:44.

It's part of the company's wider plans to revitalise it's business

:05:45.:05:47.

including reducing the number of products it stocks and closing

:05:48.:05:49.

Emma Baugh is at the distribution centre now.

:05:50.:05:55.

Very sad news tonight for the distribution centre here and also

:05:56.:06:00.

the more than 200 people who work here. Run by DHL, it is now due to

:06:01.:06:05.

close in two years' time. It is barred of a major review by

:06:06.:06:10.

Debenhams who are also looking at the future of ten of their stores

:06:11.:06:15.

and the way we shop. Staff at the Northampton store here today were

:06:16.:06:18.

upbeat, although they weren't able to talk to us. People shopping in

:06:19.:06:22.

the town today were still very impressed by Debenhams.

:06:23.:06:23.

I like the brands, the clothing, designs.

:06:24.:06:26.

Debenhams is probably the best shop that we have got in

:06:27.:06:34.

I think if we lose it it will be another major step

:06:35.:06:38.

towards the town centre disintegrating.

:06:39.:06:39.

I like the perfumes, the make-up and clothes.

:06:40.:06:45.

We have heard from DHL this evening who say that the jobs from here will

:06:46.:06:57.

be going to Peterborough and North Yorkshire. Good news for the people

:06:58.:06:59.

there, but not for the workers here. A prison officer has

:07:00.:07:02.

appeared in court charged with the manslaughter of an inmate

:07:03.:07:04.

at Woodhill Prison in Milton Keynes. 55-year-old Joseph Travers is also

:07:05.:07:09.

charged with gross negligence and misconduct in public office

:07:10.:07:14.

after the death of Ryan Harvey. The 23-year-old was found hanging

:07:15.:07:17.

in his cell in 2015. It's thought this is the first time

:07:18.:07:20.

a prison officer will face trial He will next appear

:07:21.:07:23.

at the Old Bailey on the 18th May. Police in Northamptonshire have said

:07:24.:07:30.

that 100 extra officers across the county are to be trained

:07:31.:07:32.

and equipped with Tasers. Until now only officers

:07:33.:07:35.

in the regional unit covering four counties were able

:07:36.:07:37.

to use the device. But now local officers will be

:07:38.:07:40.

trained to use them. It's hoped they will be

:07:41.:07:43.

able to offer a faster This is a wider roll-out to local

don't want is for all of the responsibility effectively to fall

Over the last ten years smart technology has brought

:13:02.:13:03.

It's particularly helpful for people with disabilities who can use

:13:04.:13:07.

technology to provide discreet but invaluable assistance.

:13:08.:13:11.

That's been the case for Marc Bilton from Dunstable who has been

:13:12.:13:14.

using special glasses for almost two years.

:13:15.:13:16.

Marc, who is registered blind, says wearing the OrCam glasses means

:13:17.:13:21.

he no longer has to rely so much on other people.

:13:22.:13:23.

Marc Bilton has Usher syndrome Type II, he has

:13:24.:13:31.

been deaf since birth and

:13:32.:13:32.

his eyesight started to go in his late teens.

:13:33.:13:37.

In 2002, as a father of four young boys coming he finally

I want to do things that every dad does, take the kids down to the park

:13:41.:13:48.

and play football, initially I could do that,

:13:49.:13:50.

but as time went on, it got

:13:51.:13:51.

harder and harder and reading bedtime stories and doing their

:13:52.:13:54.

homework with them, they would have to read out what they were supposed

:13:55.:13:57.

to do, rather than me going through and telling them how

:13:58.:13:59.

No peripheral vision, no depth, no colour, no

:14:00.:14:03.

Mark relies heavily on other people to help him.

:14:04.:14:09.

But these glasses bring independence.

A tiny camera focuses in on words, allowing him to read

It can be programmed to recognise products,

:14:21.:14:22.

ROBOTIC VOICE: Please name the person in front of you

:14:23.:14:29.

It's given me back an element of independence.

:14:30.:14:44.

It is not making my life totally free of needing other people, but it

:14:45.:14:47.

has given me some of the things back that I couldn't do.

:14:48.:14:50.

Socially, Mark is more confident and relaxed.

:14:51.:15:11.

ROBOTIC VOICE: Chicken breast burger with chips.

:15:12.:15:13.

Would you have been able to read menu like

:15:14.:15:15.

I wouldn't have been able to see boards or anything like

:15:16.:15:19.

Does that make the whole restaurant experience more

:15:20.:15:23.

I really enjoy going to restaurants now.

:15:24.:15:26.

I'm able to do things for myself rather than needing other

:15:27.:15:29.

You know, as sensors cameras and other

technical components can shrink in size,

It really is a super exciting time to be

looking at and to be using and

Mark paid almost ?2,000 to take part in the trial

alone, but he says they are life changing and are staying put.

:15:55.:16:03.

Bowl cancer is he second most common cause of cancer death in the UK,

:16:04.:16:06.

but not enough people from ethnic minority communities are taking up

:16:07.:16:09.

Muslim communities have the lowest take up rate at just 30% with Hindu

:16:10.:16:15.

That's compared to a national average of 56%.

:16:16.:16:21.

One Northampton man who's currently battling bowel cancer

:16:22.:16:23.

is trying to raise awareness across all communities.

:16:24.:16:25.

Mike Cartwright has been to meet him.

:16:26.:16:28.

Diagnosed in 2009, Nick's cancer has been

:16:29.:16:40.

In the time left, he wants to raise as much

:16:41.:16:44.

awareness about the disease as possible.

:16:45.:16:45.

Today, talking to an Asian community group in Northampton.

:16:46.:16:47.

Their children and grandchildren are perhaps more at risk now of

:16:48.:16:50.

I think that what they're doing is adopting similar

:16:51.:17:00.

lifestyle habits as their white European friends and putting

:17:01.:17:02.

themselves at the same risks as their white European friends.

:17:03.:17:04.

So they like to go and have a burger,

:17:05.:17:06.

They are doing all of the bad things that

:17:07.:17:17.

perhaps their parents and grandparents once doing.

:17:18.:17:19.

The symptoms to look out for our blood

:17:20.:17:21.

when going to the loo, change in bowel habits, unexplained weight

:17:22.:17:24.

loss, extreme tiredness and stomach pain.

:17:25.:17:25.

A campaign now underway to raise awareness about the disease

:17:26.:17:28.

amongst black and minority ethnic groups.

:17:29.:17:31.

Certain older members of communities might not read English

:17:32.:17:35.

and so when the invitation comes through, they possibly will ignore

:17:36.:17:43.

the invitation or struggle to understand what it is about.

:17:44.:17:45.

There may be some cultural barriers as to

:17:46.:17:47.

I know now what symptoms to look for.

:17:48.:17:52.

The other things I do, I do exercise, I am a

:17:53.:17:54.

It is still good to know that I am on the right path.

:17:55.:18:00.

People who perhaps didn't know anything

:18:01.:18:01.

about bowel cancer are now better informed and will be able to take

:18:02.:18:07.

close on notice now, especially for the main symptoms

:18:08.:18:10.

Nick's undergone surgery three times.

:18:11.:18:13.

He has had chemo, he is terminally ill.

:18:14.:18:18.

Bowel is now the fourth most common cancer.

:18:19.:18:20.

I am determined to extract every last

:18:21.:18:21.

It has not been fun, I have not enjoyed it,

:18:22.:18:26.

but it has also allowed me to do some really amazing things.

:18:27.:18:29.

44-year-old Ben Lowes and his six-year-old tumble dryer.

:20:07.:20:13.

I think some people have been saying it, but to

:20:14.:20:18.

I and finished with my running, really.

:20:19.:20:24.

This is more of a strength test than a running test, I believe.

:20:25.:20:28.

I think it is a challenge and I like challenges.

:20:29.:20:33.

Ben is very used to pounding the streets.

:20:34.:20:35.

He has completed 29 marathons including nine in London.

:20:36.:20:40.

At stake this time, a white goods world record.

:20:41.:20:42.

Ben might not be the only one going for a spin around the London

:20:43.:20:50.

Marathon course with a tumble dryer on his back, but you think you might

:20:51.:20:54.

have competition for the record, yeah?

:20:55.:20:55.

I do believe there is at least two others that I am

:20:56.:21:03.

You have to beat them and I have to get

:21:04.:21:07.

under six hours to get the title, but I am not going to worry about

:21:08.:21:11.

I'm confident of my training and I am ready to go, fit and

:21:12.:21:15.

This is him on the BBC show Special Forces:Ultimate Hell Week.

:21:16.:21:27.

From the Orange team, it is marathon enthusiast Blowes.

:21:28.:21:29.

He survived to tell the tale and will

:21:30.:21:31.

be running in London for Racing Welfare.

:21:32.:21:33.

The profile raising that we have received from Ben

:21:34.:21:36.

running around with a tumble dryer on his back with racing welfare on

:21:37.:21:39.

I think he is slightly crazy for doing it,

:21:40.:21:43.

Ben's trained at 4am, in the snow, even been stopped by curious police

:21:44.:21:47.

He gets a few looks in Newmarket's town centre.

:21:48.:21:56.

People stop their cars, film, people just look

:21:57.:21:58.

Other people, they see it and a couple of

:21:59.:22:02.

bleep on my phone and they have donated.

:22:03.:22:05.

Ben has pretty much heard all the gags, so all that is left to

:22:06.:22:08.

Let's have a look at the forecast now with Alex Dolan.

:22:09.:22:14.

A lot of cloud across the region today, but we did see some

:22:15.:22:22.

bright spells and sunshine in places.

:22:23.:22:23.

A lovely photo taken in Hertfordshire

:22:24.:22:29.

Blue sky in evidence there and also some brightness

:22:30.:22:35.

breaking through the trees in Suffolk.

:22:36.:22:36.

Satellite images show that there is a weak weather

:22:37.:22:38.

front moving through, it has put a lot of cloud across

:22:39.:22:41.

much of the region through today, but there has been some gaps.

:22:42.:22:44.

Brightness and sunshine to end the day.

:22:45.:22:46.

The thickest of the cloud has produced one or two spots of light

:22:47.:22:49.

rain or drizzle and that will be the trend for this evening and

:22:50.:22:52.

A lot of cloud around and still possible there could be rain

:22:53.:22:57.

Having said that, many places will stay dry

:22:58.:23:02.

Temperatures will be much milder than last night, so lows of around

:23:03.:23:10.

We may find there are a few gaps in the cloud which

:23:11.:23:14.

will allow the temperatures to drop a little bit, but not cold enough

:23:15.:23:17.

Starting the day tomorrow with high pressure

:23:18.:23:19.

This weak weather front is the next one to

:23:20.:23:24.

That is going to introduce a lot of cloud around the

:23:25.:23:28.

No rain at all, there may just be one or two light showers.

:23:29.:23:32.

Today it will generally be quite cloudy, there may well be some

:23:33.:23:35.

brightness breaking through that cloud.

:23:36.:23:36.

Quite warm temperatures despite that cloud

:23:37.:23:39.

Temperatures climbing to 15 or 16 degrees.

:23:40.:23:41.

The winds are going to start to switch direction to more

:23:42.:23:44.

That is going to bring in some cooler rare, gradually starting to

:23:45.:23:59.

cool things down and fortunately in time for the weekend. The pressure

:24:00.:24:03.

pattern shows how that starts to happen. High-pressure getting

:24:04.:24:08.

shunted to the west. This weather from clearing to the south and a

:24:09.:24:11.

northerly wind sets up and that is a much cooler air source. That error

:24:12.:24:15.

is coming all the way from the Arctic and we will have much cooler

:24:16.:24:19.

temperatures by day on Saturday. The outlook is looking cooler on

:24:20.:24:23.

Saturday and Sunday. There will be some sunshine around, but also the

:24:24.:24:28.

chance of some showers, likely to be isolated. Into the outlook, says

:24:29.:24:32.

they expect a call they generally with a lot of cloud around.

:24:33.:24:40.

Recovering temperatures on Sunday, maybe sunshine. As for the start of

:24:41.:24:46.

the next week? Staying cool and cloudy and will start to bring our

:24:47.:24:49.

temperatures down overnight, as well. Close to freezing on Monday

:24:50.:24:53.

night. Just time for a quick barometer check for you. The

:24:54.:24:58.

pressure reading is 1033 millibars which is 35.0 inches. Not bad for

:24:59.:25:01.

April. Now you may remember Peaky,

:25:02.:25:05.

the talking 'ohbot' who was launched into space by primary school

:25:06.:25:07.

children in Hertfordshire Today the first video

:25:08.:25:09.

footage of his mission Peaky was launched using

:25:10.:25:12.

an expanding balloon by pupils at the Roysia Middle School

:25:13.:25:18.

in Royston in January. That's all from us here

:25:19.:25:24.

in Cambridge for now. I'll be back with an update

:25:25.:25:26.

at 10.30, but for now,
