Prison for the boss of a chaotic transport company.

:00:00.:00:11.

He's jailed for seven years - his mechanic gets five -

:00:12.:00:13.

after their truck killed four people in Bath when the brakes failed.

:00:14.:00:21.

As a company owner, Matthew Gordon had no transport manager and if

loaded every regulation put in place to put public safety in danger. His

inside a transport company which was responsible

heard how it all could A 32-tonne truck careered down

Landsdown Lane in Bath Three men from Wales

:01:55.:01:59.

and four-year-old Mitzi Steady Last month, these two men were found

:02:00.:02:04.

guilty of manslaughter. Today, in court, the judge said

:02:21.:02:23.

we so poorly maintained And that the lives of the four

victims were lost due a bodged As a company area, Matthew Gordon

sign of vehicles as they when they were not. Tragically, this incident

:02:46.:02:51.

and subsequent loss of life, series injury and long-standing effects on

:02:52.:02:53.

the community were totally foreseeable and avoidable.

:02:54.:03:01.

Emma Jade Steady, the mother of Mitzi Steady,

:03:02.:03:03.

told the court of the heartbreak of losing her four-year-old daughter.

:03:04.:03:05.

She spoke of the devastation that their bright beautiful,

:03:06.:03:07.

vibrant, outgoing little girl will never have her

:03:08.:03:12.

first day at school, learn to read or have best friends

:03:13.:03:15.

She also spoke of the impact on her mother, Mitzi's grandmother,

:03:16.:03:18.

who lost both her legs in the accident.

:03:19.:03:25.

Sharon Vorderman, whose husband Stephen was also killed, said they

:03:26.:03:38.

were robbed of their future. -- Sian Vaughan. We should have never had to

:03:39.:03:42.

go through all this. If that was the case and it was avoided, we would

:03:43.:03:44.

have a family by now. Philip Potter, who was driving

:03:45.:03:46.

the lorry, was also a victim of Matthew Gordon's cavalier

:03:47.:03:48.

approach to safety. In sentencing the company as now,

:03:49.:03:54.

Matthew Gordon, the judge said the vehicle was so dangerous a judo

:03:55.:03:58.

never been on the road in that. He said they have a history of cutting

:03:59.:04:02.

corners with a reckless disregard for the consequences. He didn't want

:04:03.:04:07.

to take the lorry off the road for fear of passing of the giants of

:04:08.:04:11.

work. It was highly variable that death or serious injury would occur.

:04:12.:04:15.

That would the culture of the business. In sentencing the

:04:16.:04:19.

mechanic, Peter Wood, he said he had a cavalier approach to safety.

:04:20.:04:24.

Matthew God was sentenced to 7.5 years in prison, Peter Woods to five

:04:25.:04:31.

years and three months. -- Matthew Gordon. Now the family can get on

the grieving, knowing the men responsible for this tragedy are

:04:37.:04:37.

behind bars. The judge said the brakes

:04:38.:04:42.

of the truck were in an appalling condition and that Matthew Gordon

:04:43.:04:45.

wasn't concerned for the public, So what's being done now to stop

other companies cutting Scott Ellis has been out

with the safety patrols. This is one way to make

:04:52.:04:59.

sure HGV's are safe. The operators, when they sign up for

:05:00.:05:13.

licensing, they say they will their vehicles in a fit and serviceable

:05:14.:05:16.

condition as we really want to send a message to those who doubt that we

:05:17.:05:20.

are here, we will stop them and will target them.

:05:21.:05:21.

The DVSA keep tabs on hauliers - using data such as MOT failures.

:05:22.:05:25.

That information's used by offciers as they patrol our motorways.

:05:26.:05:32.

All along the M4, there are cameras watching numberplates, so they know

which lorries are coming down towards them. They can quickly jack

is operating lorry and, if it's someone with a poor track record of

:05:47.:05:51.

maintenance, they are more likely to be polled in.

:05:52.:05:52.

Across the UK - the DVSA checks 220,000 lorries

:05:53.:05:54.

One in three fails some aspect of the mechanical test.

:05:55.:05:58.

The Road Haulage Association wants more enforcement like this.

:05:59.:06:01.

And it wants new operators blitzed with an audit

:06:02.:06:04.

Saying that would have stopped Grittenham Haulage in its tracks.

:06:05.:06:15.

The complete ignorance of the rules and disregard for the safety rules

:06:16.:06:22.

would have been learning about. It would have been reported to the

:06:23.:06:27.

traffic Commissioner and the traffic Commissioner who then, potentially,

:06:28.:06:29.

have taken action against the operator to curtail the licensed or

:06:30.:06:33.

force them to actually take action to remedy the problems that existed.

:06:34.:06:35.

Truck drivers we spoke to hope the Bath tragedy will send

:06:36.:06:37.

But the reputable drivers worry corners will still be cut.

:06:38.:06:45.

People are undercutting each other all the time. It is just the

:06:46.:06:52.

pressure on these companies to make money.

:06:53.:06:53.

It can cost a ?1000 a month to maintain a truck.

:06:54.:07:00.

The message now more than ever is profit cannot come safety.

:07:01.:07:03.

The judge said this 32 tonne trigger top -- o'clock had review safety

the wishes of her constituents who voted strongly for remaining

:08:31.:08:32.

all the more complicated by the fact she's a party whip and is meant

across the West to mark In Bristol, there was a celebration

:10:08.:10:09.

of the work of Sir Nicholas Winton, who saved more than 600 children's

:10:10.:10:15.

lives by bringing them from Prague to Britain and finding

:10:16.:10:18.

families to take them in. He didn't speak about his work

:10:19.:10:20.

for nearly 50 years. But when he appeared

:10:21.:10:22.

on That's Life in 1988, it was very apparent

:10:23.:10:24.

what a difference I should tell you that

he now composes poetry, Before Christmas, he met his hero -

the author Michael Morpurgo - who talked to him for an hour,

:14:50.:14:54.

and even read one of his stories. Family and friends will come

:14:55.:14:58.

together in Cheltenham this weekend to celebrate the life

:14:59.:15:01.

and contribution of a man who's been described as a rock star

:15:02.:15:04.

in the world of opthalmology. Rob Johnston was a top

:15:05.:15:08.

surgeon and innovator based at the Cheltenham General

:15:09.:15:10.

eye department. Sadly, he died last

:15:11.:15:15.

Autumn at the age of 50 and left an enduring legacy,

:15:16.:15:17.

as Amanda Parr reports. His skill has saved the eyesight

:15:18.:15:20.

of thousands of patients. Those he's helped,

:15:21.:15:26.

those he's worked with remember his rapport,

:15:27.:15:28.

his drive, his energy. A fantastic surgeon. He was a

:15:29.:15:39.

surgeon to its core. He loved operating. He had fantastic surgical

:15:40.:15:44.

results. As a friend and colleague, Hebrew patients first. -- he put.

:15:45.:15:53.

He came up with a new electronic patient record

:15:54.:15:55.

system that's now widely used - it was revolutionary -

:15:56.:15:57.

award winning - allowing teams to record and analyse the results

:15:58.:16:00.

of treatments - improving the quality of patient care.

:16:01.:16:02.

It's the only jewel in medicine, I'm aware of, that has been designed

:16:03.:16:06.

purely for clinicians by other clinicians. It's no extra efforts to

:16:07.:16:12.

doctors to acquire that information. -- the only tool in medicine.

:16:13.:16:18.

Rob also transformed this place - the outpatient facilities.

:16:19.:16:20.

Despite failing health he chased funding, helped plan the layout -

:16:21.:16:23.

chose seat colours, flooring and artwork.

:16:24.:16:25.

There's loads of space, the corridors are nice and wide, it has

:16:26.:16:32.

been forced out very carefully as an ideal environment for ophthalmology.

:16:33.:16:41.

And a great legacy for Robert. Yes, another great legacy. It's a great

:16:42.:16:47.

part of it. You have the patience, but you want the atmosphere and

:16:48.:16:49.

everything to be like this. It's lovely.

:16:50.:16:49.

But staff were determined to surprise him on opening day -

:16:50.:16:54.

sneaking a plaque onto the wall to thank him.

:16:55.:16:57.

Tomorrow, many will gather to remember Rob Johnston.

:16:58.:17:01.

A man described as unfailingly modest - but one of the most

:17:02.:17:04.

influential opthalmologists of his generation.

:17:05.:17:12.

A party was held at a care home in Bristol this afternoon,

:17:13.:17:17.

where one of its residents celebrated her 107th birthday.

:17:18.:17:21.

Lorna Grey used to work as a nurse, loves playing the piano

:17:22.:17:25.

and says she's partial to a glass of wine.

:17:26.:17:30.

Bristol City can put their league troubles aside tomorrow as they head

:17:31.:17:37.

to Premier League Burnley in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

:17:38.:17:40.

Alistair Durden is here - so the pressure is off,

:17:41.:17:43.

No-one is really expecting Bristol City to win but it'd be

:17:44.:17:52.

a huge confidence booster if they did, but defeat isn't

:17:53.:17:54.

A break from the league has given City the chance to put out

:17:55.:18:02.

The club's owner and the players have been uniting behind

:18:03.:18:06.

His job is under fierce scrutiny and Lee Johnson says

:18:07.:18:10.

But after a club record eighth league defeat in a row,

:18:11.:18:15.

City's owner has this week given the head coach his

:18:16.:18:17.

He has never faltered or wavered from being a supporter and -- as

:18:18.:18:31.

supportive and consistent as his message was. I'm very resilient and

:18:32.:18:36.

I got a belief in the squad. A belief in myself and my staff. Read

:18:37.:18:39.

on everyday our best. He's also found an ally in star

:18:40.:18:42.

striker Lee Tomlin - who's recent absence from the team

:18:43.:18:44.

had sparked rumours There's no argument. We sleep each

:18:45.:18:57.

other every day and I've got so much respect for him. Our performances

:18:58.:19:02.

have been nowhere near what I'm capable of. If I was on top of my

:19:03.:19:07.

game and playing, everyone would know if we'd had an argument.

:19:08.:19:09.

Burnley's manager Sean Dyche knows all about

:19:10.:19:11.

He traces his own sucess back to an ill-fated spell as a City

:19:12.:19:17.

I learned more from two years there it's not going right in my career

:19:18.:19:26.

than I did for the rest of my career. It was invaluable to

:19:27.:19:31.

understand more about myself, the game and Lee will know what he's

:19:32.:19:34.

going through, what his team are going through at the challenges to

:19:35.:19:38.

the ageing consistent, deliver performances, it's soft. -- tough.

:19:39.:19:47.

City haven't beaten a Premier League team in the FA Cup

:19:48.:19:49.

since that famous night at Anfield in 1994.

:19:50.:19:51.

Only one hand, it's a way and we need to focus on the league but it

:19:52.:19:58.

will be some respite if we get a wind there, and that will help

:19:59.:20:03.

following league games. Lee is on a hiding to nothing, to tell you the

:20:04.:20:05.

truth. Tuesday's league game

:20:06.:20:06.

will be more significant, but tomorrow is a chance to show

:20:07.:20:08.

some strength of character. Interesting to hear from Sean Dyche

:20:09.:20:19.

mayor who is one of the leading British managers. I found a bit of

:20:20.:20:25.

footage hair from 20 years a ghetto, signing for Bristol city. The cat

:20:26.:20:30.

that. He has not aged at all. On the front row, you might recognise that

:20:31.:20:36.

chap. Yours truly. It's Harry Potter! You have grown into church.

:20:37.:20:43.

Yeah, probably the biggest shirt you could ever find. Anyway, enough of

:20:44.:20:47.

mocking me. The other big match tomorrow is Bristol Rovers visit

:20:48.:20:52.

Swindon. Bristol Rovers got the points back in September. Steve

:20:53.:20:56.

White has played up front to both clubs and said Swindon have devised

:20:57.:21:02.

a way to score more goals. A return of 27 goals in 28 games is not good

:21:03.:21:05.

enough and that has been a major problem. They are modest but for the

:21:06.:21:10.

points than Rovers, so they don't get sucked into the bottom fall. Of

:21:11.:21:17.

course, Rovers abolished prison -- Rovers where political ad. They have

:21:18.:21:21.

more points than Swindon have scored. If Rovers have the chance to

:21:22.:21:28.

wind, they could be promoted. That's all the kick-off here, the rested at

:21:29.:21:32.

3pm. Gloucester centre Henry Trinder

:21:39.:21:40.

on the fringe of the England side before a succession of serious

about... it is Holocaust Memorial Day

and for one woman from South Gloucestershire,

:21:56.:22:03.

that's particularly significant. Hella Hewison escaped

England to a family in Knole, Bristol. They stayed with them for a

few months. They were carrying. They could speak no German, so I learned

English and I went to Golden girls school why I was there. My mother in

I went to a school, worked as a nurse and a health visitor. It is

:23:29.:23:32.

important that the Holocaust and what has happened to the Germans

:23:33.:23:39.

during the Nazi period should not be forgotten. We read forget.

:23:40.:23:43.

Absolutely. It's nearly time to get

:23:44.:23:45.

the weekend weather with Ian - but just time to tell you that one

:23:46.:23:48.

woman got more than she bargained for on a night out

:23:49.:23:51.

in Bristol last night. Normally watching

a musical encourages us Well, I think you can see what's

:23:54.:23:58.

coming. at the Bristol Hippodrome had

Rachel Robinson going into labour. to hospital where little

Digby was born. Today one of the stars

of the musical, Jason Manford, congratulated the family

:24:12.:24:13.

on social media. Apparently he waved off off with the

:24:14.:24:23.

gas as well from the stage door. I didn't even notice. I was busy

:24:24.:24:27.

getting into the car to get to the hospital. In an tom cat members were

:24:28.:24:33.

there any audience watching ours get going. He and some cast members. And

:24:34.:24:43.

my mother managed to have a chat with him as well.

:24:44.:24:44.

And she managed to get a programme signed by Jason Manford

:24:45.:24:47.

Many imaginations. What a sweet little baby. I wonder if any viewers

:24:48.:24:55.

are now having contractions watching ours. I think I had a bit of a

:24:56.:25:01.

twinge earlier. Is that what it was? Over to Ian on the roof. Still

:25:02.:25:04.

raining? It is indeed. Can't complain. Earlier this week, I

:25:05.:25:14.

was trying to think of new way to describe a stagnant weather pattern.

:25:15.:25:20.

Not so now. A very changeable period carrying out the rest of January. It

:25:21.:25:24.

seems that this book commence to the first part of February as well. Let

:25:25.:25:28.

me tell you about the forecast for the rest of the weekend. Rain at

:25:29.:25:33.

times but, having said that, on Saturday, losing the current period

:25:34.:25:35.

of rain developing overnight and some wind generally brighter weather

:25:36.:25:41.

for a while. We will see showers moving in from the west for the rest

:25:42.:25:45.

of the afternoon. As we head into Sunday, turning wind yeah, but it

:25:46.:25:49.

might as well. Quite notably, milder as well, with a very big change

:25:50.:25:55.

eventually pattern we have had every reason days. He is a bigger loot as

:25:56.:26:02.

to how the weekend shapes up. A window dryer, brighter weather

:26:03.:26:05.

followed by some writers showers in from the west through tomorrow.

:26:06.:26:10.

Waiting in the wings, the next system in the Atlantic, that heads

:26:11.:26:19.

into Sunday. A better finish on Saturday. For the rest of this

:26:20.:26:21.

evening, period of rain developing quite readily. That whole pattern is

:26:22.:26:25.

spreading bloodily from west to east. You can see rain coming up

:26:26.:26:33.

from the south. Temperatures for all of us will be somewhere in the range

:26:34.:26:38.

of about 4-6 C. Quite a bit of help for the associated with this

:26:39.:26:41.

particular front. Then it's a question of how that plays away.

:26:42.:26:48.

Then comes this period of generally drier, brighter weather spreading in

:26:49.:26:51.

through towards lunchtime on for a while through this afternoon. Rescue

:26:52.:26:56.

showers to late evening. Some quite lively. Some go all the wind as

:26:57.:27:06.

well. Temperatures up to around 8-9 C. -- squally. Into Sunday,

:27:07.:27:12.

temperatures picked up further with a push to 10 Celsius. It's been a

:27:13.:27:16.

while since we've had these kind of values. Milder still due Monday. We

:27:17.:27:21.

could see some pretty windy weather developing later on through next

:27:22.:27:24.

week and anything question of how far into February this pattern

:27:25.:27:30.

develops. Thank you very much. Have a lovely weekend and I'm glad it

:27:31.:27:35.

will be a bit milder. Yes. It has been really Jimmy. Really cold.

:27:36.:27:40.

Reading! Freezing! Me better go. Then forget the sunny politics this

:27:41.:27:43.

weekend but we will see you on Monday. Thanks for watching.

:27:44.:27:44.

Goodbye. We know you understand the risks

:27:45.:27:52.

associated with your pregnancy. Because I'm smaller, people think

:27:53.:27:55.

my hopes are not so great. You know what it's like when

:27:56.:27:58.

help is needed. You just jump in. Are you saying that

:27:59.:28:06.

he's stalking you now?

:28:07.:28:20.
