In tonight's headlines: so it's goodbye from me

:00:00.:00:00.

A Conservative councillor and hunt master resigns after making

:00:00.:00:00.

Pioneering treatment - a County Durham biker who's

:00:00.:00:11.

paralysed from the waist down is learning to walk again.

:00:12.:00:20.

I want to run again. I was very keen sportsman, extremely fit, I've done

:00:21.:00:30.

the Great North Run so my ultimate goal is to do the Great North Run

:00:31.:00:32.

again. Forget about dry January,

:00:33.:00:33.

how about this dry bar? Opening tonight, it's

:00:34.:00:35.

for people who want a night And child's play -

:00:36.:00:37.

clown doctors celebrate their tenth birthday after last year's killer

:00:38.:00:40.

clown craze put paid to their party. In football, Middlesbrough's head

:00:41.:00:43.

coach stands by his criticism And one of Sunderland's injured

:00:44.:00:45.

stars takes the first step North Yorkshire Police is

:00:46.:00:49.

investigating after a confrontation First to the story of a man who's

:00:50.:01:16.

making medical history. Andrew Bell was the first person

:01:17.:01:19.

from the UK to undergo treatment that he hopes

:01:20.:01:21.

will help him walk again. Andrew, who's from County Durham,

:01:22.:01:23.

was left paralysed after a motorbike Doctors told him he

:01:24.:01:26.

would never walk again. But, he's determined

:01:27.:01:29.

to prove them wrong, and has just returned from a second

:01:30.:01:31.

trip to Thailand where, doctors say, he's moving towards a point

:01:32.:01:34.

where he will become the first patient with complete spinal

:01:35.:01:36.

injury to be able to walk. Our health reporter Sharon Barbour

:01:37.:01:39.

has this exclusive report. Standing is a remarkable

:01:40.:01:41.

achievement for Andrew Bell. Indescribable to look at myself

:01:42.:01:44.

in the mirror pretty The County Durham man

:01:45.:01:47.

was paralysed from the waist down after a motorbike incident and told

:01:48.:01:53.

he would never walk, But Andrew, a former fighter,

:01:54.:01:58.

wasn't ever going to give up trying. He went out to Bangkok where doctors

:01:59.:02:05.

injected millions of embryonic chord stem cells and an electrical

:02:06.:02:10.

stimulator was fitted For the last three months he's

:02:11.:02:13.

been back in Thailand And here he's been

:02:14.:02:19.

learning to walk again. And for his mother, a birthday

:02:20.:02:30.

message, delivered standing up. Hi mum, have a fantastic birthday,

:02:31.:02:34.

sorry I can't be there but Having been told 18 months ago

:02:35.:02:39.

that Andrew would never, he was paralysed, unable to stand

:02:40.:02:51.

or walk again, and then to see on my birthday there is Andrew

:02:52.:02:57.

in Thailand standing, Yes, I couldn't wish

:02:58.:03:01.

for anything more. When we last filmed Andrew

:03:02.:03:06.

he was starting to move his feet His progress, according

:03:07.:03:10.

to a stem cell professor Phenomenal to say the least,

:03:11.:03:17.

the fact he can stand for an hour with relatively little aid,

:03:18.:03:27.

little support after such What we think is going

:03:28.:03:30.

on is that the injected stem cells were capable of providing

:03:31.:03:35.

what we call growth factors and other chemicals that induced

:03:36.:03:38.

the stem cells which already exist in Andrew's body to

:03:39.:03:43.

regenerate themselves. The doctors in Thailand believe

:03:44.:03:47.

he may become the first patient with complete spinal chord injury

:03:48.:03:51.

to be able to walk again. Andrew hopes for even

:03:52.:03:56.

more than that. I want to run again,

:03:57.:03:59.

I was a keen sportsman, extremely fit and I've done

:04:00.:04:02.

the Great North Run so my ultimate goal is to do

:04:03.:04:05.

the Great North Run again. And Andrew joins us live

:04:06.:04:13.

here in the studio tonight. You were told you'd never walk again

:04:14.:04:17.

- but you refused to accept that? Yet, I think I'm not that type of

:04:18.:04:32.

person who was just going to lay down but as soon as I was told, my

:04:33.:04:37.

initial reaction was to think, what can I do to prove to myself but

:04:38.:04:43.

prove to anyone who will tell me I will never want for the rest of my

:04:44.:04:49.

life, I am my own destiny and not somebody else telling me that. Do

:04:50.:04:55.

you hope doing what you were doing will inspire others? Absolutely, I

:04:56.:05:03.

know what my family and friends and is when I'm think mice can inspire

:05:04.:05:08.

and give a bit of hope and let people know that our things

:05:09.:05:14.

happening out there, you don't have to believe in what you are told. It

:05:15.:05:22.

is a global world, you have been to Thailand twice now for treatment.

:05:23.:05:28.

Where do you go from there? This time, now I have got back, I have a

:05:29.:05:34.

good treatment programme I will do at home but ultimately I was like to

:05:35.:05:40.

continue and do some rehab with the help of a physiotherapist either at

:05:41.:05:44.

home but if not I may go out there for a longer period and do some

:05:45.:05:51.

really intense rehab, but ideally if I could do would at home that would

:05:52.:05:57.

be my number one priority. I guess money is a priority to fund this.

:05:58.:06:03.

The treatment I have done out there has come out quite a cost but it's a

:06:04.:06:09.

drop in the ocean considering I was told I would never wriggle a token

:06:10.:06:15.

to be able to stand for an hour now, so absolutely. You have an amazing

:06:16.:06:19.

outlook. I look forward to seeing you in the Great North Run. That is

:06:20.:06:21.

my goal. Best of luck. A court's heard claims that a man

:06:22.:06:30.

would rather be convicted of a horrendous murder

:06:31.:06:32.

than reveal details Gareth Dack, who's 33,

:06:33.:06:34.

is accused of strangling 79-year-old Norma Bell before setting fire

:06:35.:06:38.

to her house in Dack denies murdering the pensioner

:06:39.:06:40.

and today he told the court he couldn't be convicted

:06:41.:06:43.

of something he didn't do. Gareth Dack described Norma Bell

:06:44.:06:46.

as a wonderful woman who he knew well but at a cross-examination

:06:47.:06:53.

by the prosecution he was today accused of trying to hoodwink

:06:54.:06:56.

the court, telling lies and bending the truth as he tried to account

:06:57.:07:00.

for his movements before her death. The night before Norma Bell's body

:07:01.:07:06.

was discovered at her home in Hartlepool, Gareth Dack said

:07:07.:07:09.

he had been selling drugs In the witness box the prosecution

:07:10.:07:12.

said it was crucial to Gareth Dack's credibility that he said

:07:13.:07:19.

who he sold cocaine to. He replied he could not give those

:07:20.:07:24.

names because some of the people he sold drugs to were solicitors

:07:25.:07:26.

and police community The prosecution said those people

:07:27.:07:30.

could provide him with an alibi and he would rather be convicted

:07:31.:07:36.

of this horrendous murder To that he replied he

:07:37.:07:39.

could not be convicted Gareth Dack said he visited

:07:40.:07:45.

Norma Bell to fix her gate the night before her body was discovered

:07:46.:07:51.

and he said she was He said his DNA was found

:07:52.:07:54.

in the pensioner's house North Yorkshire Police is

:07:55.:07:58.

investigating after a confrontation between a huntsman and a protestor

:07:59.:08:13.

at the Middleton Hunt Charles Carter, from Birdsall

:08:14.:08:16.

near York, was caught on camera making sexual comments

:08:17.:08:20.

to Linda Hoggard, when she He has now resigned his position

:08:21.:08:23.

as a Conservative district councillor in Norfolk

:08:24.:08:28.

where he previously lived. Excuse me, did you know hunting was

:08:29.:08:43.

banned? The moment when Linda Hoggard approached Charles Carter to

:08:44.:08:48.

tell him fox hunting was illegal. The protester challenges him and he

:08:49.:08:54.

starts filming her. I would quite like to... I will tell my husband

:08:55.:09:02.

that, shall I? Charles Carter has been a district councillor in

:09:03.:09:08.

Norfolk but he resigned after the revelations of his conduct. His

:09:09.:09:19.

council leader said he was appalled. In 2015 Charles Carter was

:09:20.:09:22.

interviewed about the ban on fox hunting. Having to look over one's

:09:23.:09:28.

shoulder all the time in fear of breaching bad law is not what the

:09:29.:09:32.

country should be about. Charles Carter has now moved to itself and

:09:33.:09:38.

the Middleton Hunt is now described as one of the most historic in north

:09:39.:09:43.

Yorkshire. Now Charles Carter's comments have bought controversy to

:09:44.:09:49.

the hunt. I don't know if it has been blown out of proportion, he has

:09:50.:09:56.

definitely stepped over the line. He has made sexual comments to her.

:09:57.:10:00.

That's not relevant to the situation, sad but there we are. It

:10:01.:10:09.

is now understood that Mr Carter has found Linda Hoggard to apologise for

:10:10.:10:14.

his behaviour. We hear of people who are abused and intimidated, this

:10:15.:10:20.

problem is getting out of control, one of the problems is that the hunt

:10:21.:10:26.

lobby association has refused to apologise for these incidents and

:10:27.:10:30.

they are getting worse. You are pretty. Yet, whatever. So are foxes.

:10:31.:10:38.

North Yorkshire Police have confirmed that they are

:10:39.:10:40.

investigating Monday's incident. The Conservatives have

:10:41.:10:42.

revealed their candidate Last week Labour named Gillian

:10:43.:10:44.

Troughton and Ukip named Fiona Mills Rebecca Hanson is contesting

:10:45.:10:48.

the seat for the Liberal Democrats. The by-election, caused

:10:49.:10:52.

by the resignation of Labour's Jamie Reed,

:10:53.:10:54.

will take place on February 23rd. You can see a full list of

:10:55.:10:57.

candidates on the BBC News website. Two men have been charged

:10:58.:11:02.

with aggravated burglary following an incident

:11:03.:11:04.

in County Durham when a pensioner's life savings were stolen

:11:05.:11:06.

in a raid on his home. It is alleged the 77-year-old

:11:07.:11:09.

from Coronation near Bishop Auckland was attacked with a coal shovel

:11:10.:11:13.

and robbed on Saturday. He was taken to Darlington Memorial

:11:14.:11:17.

Hospital where he was treated Cumbria police has been told

:11:18.:11:21.

by a Government watchdog it must improve the way the force deals

:11:22.:11:27.

with children at risk of abuse. A report by Her Majesty's

:11:28.:11:30.

Inspectorate of Constabulary found there was insufficient understanding

:11:31.:11:34.

of sexual exploitation and inconsistent protection for

:11:35.:11:38.

children who regularly go missing. Keeping children safe puts huge

:11:39.:11:42.

pressures on the police. Getting it wrong can have

:11:43.:11:49.

tragic consequences. This latest assessment of Cumbria's

:11:50.:11:52.

performance has found much the force does well,

:11:53.:11:55.

but areas where it must improve. This isn't a grade inspection

:11:56.:11:59.

so there were no ratings of good, There were some instances

:12:00.:12:03.

they highlighted where we could and should have done better

:12:04.:12:07.

and we are putting a comprehensive action plan in place to make sure

:12:08.:12:10.

in similar cases in the future we react quicker or better

:12:11.:12:13.

or have a better response. This inspection comes in the wake

:12:14.:12:17.

of the case of Poppi Worthington, a Cumbrian toddler who died

:12:18.:12:21.

after she may have been Evidence was lost in that case

:12:22.:12:23.

and no-one has been prosecuted. The Poppi Worthington case

:12:24.:12:29.

was extremely tragic but the justified criticism

:12:30.:12:32.

of the constabulary in that case was about the response

:12:33.:12:35.

to the investigation This is about our ability to protect

:12:36.:12:38.

children and prevent Few areas of crime reflect the way

:12:39.:12:43.

police work has changed more Police officers must now show that

:12:44.:12:48.

not only can they investigate a crime but they can also prevent

:12:49.:12:53.

children from sliding into danger. That is why every officer must now

:12:54.:12:56.

be able to spot the signs If I could wave a magic wand

:12:57.:13:00.

and double the number of officers things would improve but that is not

:13:01.:13:07.

reality, we have to work with what we have, and we will be

:13:08.:13:10.

looking at this over the next few weeks to see if we need

:13:11.:13:14.

to prioritise it even more. The force insists it is making

:13:15.:13:18.

the changes required, The only bar in Teesside

:13:19.:13:21.

which caters for people who don't The owners claim it will offer

:13:22.:13:32.

a night out with a difference, serving food and soft drinks,

:13:33.:13:38.

whilst supporting people Phil Chapman joins us live

:13:39.:13:40.

from Middlesbrough. It looks busy. It is very busy in

:13:41.:13:57.

here. Dried January, for most of us it is about detoxing after the

:13:58.:14:02.

festive season but Bar Zero is party here to help those with more serious

:14:03.:14:09.

alcohol problems. Not everybody in here, I don't want to describe

:14:10.:14:14.

everyone like that but Jonathan joins me from public health and

:14:15.:14:18.

well-being. You look a bit like Del boy there. Quite a dry bar for

:14:19.:14:25.

Teesside? It is another exciting venue for the town and another

:14:26.:14:33.

high-quality venue for Middlesbrough but the unique selling point is the

:14:34.:14:37.

fact we don't sell alcohol, coffee shops are popular in Middlesbrough

:14:38.:14:42.

but they tend to shut when the shops do so this is no alternative for

:14:43.:14:46.

anybody who doesn't want to drink, wants to watch the football and have

:14:47.:14:51.

nice food, please come to Bar Zero. What sparked the idea? Has Teesside

:14:52.:15:00.

got a problem? Teesside has high levels of alcohol abuse and there

:15:01.:15:06.

are one in five adults in the country know who choose not to drink

:15:07.:15:11.

alcohol, so it caters for a broad range of people. There are health

:15:12.:15:17.

benefits we want to tap into but hopefully it will appeal to a

:15:18.:15:23.

cross-section of the town. They hear, you could well become a

:15:24.:15:28.

regular here. Just fill us in on your background. You had a struggle

:15:29.:15:36.

with drink and drugs. I was addicted to drugs for 20 years, I lost my

:15:37.:15:42.

leg, burnt my hands but I'd turned everything around. 15 years drugs

:15:43.:15:49.

free, I have my own production company and I have come to Bar Zero,

:15:50.:15:53.

so it's fantastic for people to come together. Bar Zero is launching

:15:54.:15:59.

tonight but it will be open every Friday and Saturday evening from

:16:00.:16:03.

tomorrow. That looks very smart, Phil. Thank you.

:16:04.:16:10.

They say laughter is the best medicine -

:16:11.:16:12.

and for the last ten years a group of clowns who dress up as doctors

:16:13.:16:15.

has been entertaining seriously ill children at Newcastle's hospitals.

:16:16.:16:17.

The Clown Doctors, who are all performers,

:16:18.:16:19.

were due to mark their birthday in October but had to postpone

:16:20.:16:22.

the event after the co-called killer clown craze.

:16:23.:16:24.

Well, today they had the last laugh, with a special celebration

:16:25.:16:27.

at the Great North Children's Hospital.

:16:28.:16:28.

Celebrating ten years of raising a smile during

:16:29.:16:36.

One-year-old Ross recently had a bone marrow transplant.

:16:37.:16:42.

He sees different people, but he doesn't have normal

:16:43.:16:45.

interactions that he would at 18 months if he was going to nursery.

:16:46.:16:49.

So the Clown Doctors coming in and just giving him a better

:16:50.:16:52.

one-to-one entertainment when he really enjoys

:16:53.:16:55.

seeing a different face, and it is really nice just

:16:56.:17:00.

to give him something different rather than looking

:17:01.:17:02.

The Clown Doctors dress up and, well, clown around to help

:17:03.:17:11.

make hospital less scary for the children.

:17:12.:17:14.

Being hospitalised can be a traumatic and frightening

:17:15.:17:16.

experience for children and for their families,

:17:17.:17:20.

so we are here to work using play, very child learnt,

:17:21.:17:29.

so we are here to work using play, very child led,

:17:30.:17:33.

Celebrations to mark their anniversary had

:17:34.:17:39.

to be postponed last year because of the so-called

:17:40.:17:42.

We were gutted, absolutely frustrated, that the children

:17:43.:17:46.

knew we were coming, they were expecting us that day,

:17:47.:17:48.

So today is a really special day for us to come

:17:49.:17:52.

back and go, actually, we are, if you like,

:17:53.:17:54.

The work they do with the youngsters here is part of the therapeutic

:17:55.:18:00.

And over 10 years they have worked with more than 30,000 children.

:18:01.:18:17.

There are claims tonight that Northumberland Council has cut down

:18:18.:18:23.

a tree at its Morpeth headquarters planted by the Queen

:18:24.:18:25.

Conservative councillors say the tree has been removed

:18:26.:18:28.

as the council prepares to move its base to Ashington.

:18:29.:18:31.

But the council says it's not sure it ever had a royal

:18:32.:18:33.

Our news correspondent Mark Denten takes up the story.

:18:34.:18:38.

April 9th 1979, the late Queen Mother on a visit

:18:39.:18:41.

to Northumberland, Corbridge just one of the stops on a busy schedule.

:18:42.:18:47.

And on that April day the Queen Mother also came

:18:48.:18:50.

here to Morpeth at the very beginning of work on the

:18:51.:18:54.

She also had an avenue named after her here.

:18:55.:19:01.

Things have changed in 38 years and more recently,

:19:02.:19:06.

just look at this, County Hall 18 months ago and today.

:19:07.:19:14.

The council says they have been cut down because they were overgrown

:19:15.:19:20.

and blocking daylight but this opposition councillor says a tree

:19:21.:19:22.

planted here giving that royal visit in 1979 has been given the chop too.

:19:23.:19:31.

The Queen Mother was invited to Northumberland to dedicate this

:19:32.:19:33.

site in 1979 and she planted a tree in honour not just of this

:19:34.:19:38.

new building but in honour of the people of Northumberland

:19:39.:19:41.

and angry, councillors are angry, the people of Morpeth are angry

:19:42.:19:45.

and residents across the county should be angry that part

:19:46.:19:50.

This comes in the middle of a row over the council's plans to sell

:19:51.:19:59.

this land for 200 homes, a retail park and their school moved

:20:00.:20:04.

Opponents say it will actually cost more.

:20:05.:20:15.

And the royal tree - the council says although there

:20:16.:20:18.

is a foundation stone dedicated by the Queen Mother,

:20:19.:20:20.

Either way a row over local government has taken

:20:21.:20:26.

Have to get Special Branch in. Now, sport... Some lively debate.

:20:27.:20:47.

But no jokes like that, fortunately. The Middlesbrough head coach

:20:48.:20:49.

Aitor Karanka remains unrepentant over his post-match comments

:20:50.:20:51.

following last weekend's He'd described the atmosphere

:20:52.:20:53.

at the Riverside Stadium as "awful" with some fans late

:20:54.:20:56.

on urging his team to "attack, attack, attack"

:20:57.:20:59.

and others leaving early. The Boro boss also had plenty to say

:21:00.:21:00.

about possible incomings and outgoings before Tuesday's

:21:01.:21:03.

transfer deadline. Aitor Karanka was annoyed some

:21:04.:21:08.

sections of the home crowd felt the team ought to play long balls

:21:09.:21:11.

in the closing stages of last Saturday's game

:21:12.:21:14.

to try and salvage a draw. He insists that his comments

:21:15.:21:16.

were intended not to offend supporters but to protect his squad

:21:17.:21:19.

who deserved respect for mostly trying to play the style of football

:21:20.:21:22.

the Spaniard feels has served The last ten minutes was them best

:21:23.:21:40.

example, so we concede a goal, we didn't create one chance, last

:21:41.:21:44.

season we scored I don't know how many goals in the last minute

:21:45.:21:48.

because we played in the same style and that style has been successful

:21:49.:21:50.

for us. Boro are hoping to convince

:21:51.:21:51.

Paris St Germain's ex Real Madrid forward Jese Rodriguez,

:21:52.:21:53.

who Karanka knows from his time Karanka confirmed that Boro have had

:21:54.:21:56.

a bid for Hull's Robert Snodgrass rejected with Burnley and West Ham

:21:57.:22:00.

also interested in the So could being a relegation rival

who we are trying to bring here and we will have four or five days to

see what is happening. Meanwhile the Spaniard

was critical of Gaston Ramirez after he submitted a transfer

around ?12 million rejected. What is more important than anybody

:22:31.:22:42.

in this team, so at the end if the right offer doesn't arrive, he would

:22:43.:22:48.

be an important player in this group because everybody knows his

:22:49.:22:48.

importance. Sunderland manager David Moyes

for the speedy winger, who's set his sights on a return

:23:11.:23:14.

to full-time training It's frustrating but I think it's

:23:15.:23:28.

important with the rehab process to keep a positive mindset. It's a long

:23:29.:23:33.

injury and there is no point being done about it because you will not

:23:34.:23:38.

do the rehab well. We try to keep morale up and that is what I can do,

:23:39.:23:40.

then that is what I will do. The hope is, by the time

he is back on the pitch, the Black Cats will still be

in the Premier League. We have been in this position but we

have also got out of that, so we have to make sure we put that into

cold because my border has stopped working. Bitterly cold today. There

was some variation in cloud cover, eastern areas hanging onto cloud

:25:15.:25:20.

cover, it was not warm anywhere. Where the sun came out we saw the

:25:21.:25:24.

heady heights of four Celsius but many places under the cloud in the

:25:25.:25:30.

East stuck at freezing and the cold weather will stay with us in the

:25:31.:25:36.

short term, so a bitterly cold night tonight, blue haze and widespread

:25:37.:25:41.

frost as temperatures drop sub zero everywhere, even with cloud cover

:25:42.:25:46.

you will see numbers down two minus three. Some people have asked why

:25:47.:25:51.

there is no frost, it is because the air from the continent is so bright

:25:52.:25:55.

that there is not enough moisture to form frost but a bitterly cold start

:25:56.:26:00.

tomorrow and it will stay cold to the day. There will be some

:26:01.:26:05.

brightness around in the morning, the cloud will tend to fill in

:26:06.:26:09.

through the afternoon, a dull second half to the day, most places stayed

dry, just the odd wintry flurry and everywhere should pass freezing

point tomorrow, highs of four or five Celsius. Southerly winds, maybe

:26:20.:26:27.

not as brisk as today, so that is the picture tomorrow, these weather

:26:28.:26:31.

fronts come in from the West in the next few days and that will change

:26:32.:26:37.

the change in wind direction to a milder form, so tomorrow mostly dry

:26:38.:26:46.

but cold again with a bit of brightness you might see

:26:47.:26:50.

temperatures a couple of degrees up on today and then at the weekend

:26:51.:26:55.

things turn milder, more unsettled, maybe one or two showers in the west

:26:56.:26:59.

on Saturday but that south-west westerly wind starts to pick the

:27:00.:27:04.

temperatures up. On Sunday most places start the day dry and bright,

:27:05.:27:08.

we need to keep an eye on that frontal system in the South which

:27:09.:27:12.

may bring some thicker cloud and patchy rain but temperatures through

So, why's my apple falling? Well, it's not.

:28:04.:28:06.

It is the ground that accelerates up to meet the apple.

:28:07.:28:10.

So that's why the chair that I'm sitting on now

:28:11.:28:12.

that actually feels as if it's accelerating up

:28:13.:28:14.

It's really changed my relationship with this chair. Mm-hm.
