The threat of legal action against a Kent council leader

:00:00.:00:21.

by the company wanting to reopen Manston Airport.

:00:22.:00:23.

Is the NHS prejudiced against obese people?

:00:24.:00:28.

We hear from the Sussex woman who says she was

:00:29.:00:31.

forced to go private for life-saving weight-loss surgery.

:00:32.:00:36.

I was bloated out with water retention and it was causing my

:00:37.:00:41.

other organs to fail. The driver of a lorry that brought

:00:42.:00:49.

down a bridge on the M20 And the man in the mummy -

:00:50.:00:53.

how 21st-century technology is unlocking 3,000-year-old

:00:54.:00:56.

mysteries at a castle in Kent. South-east politicians have called

:00:57.:01:08.

tonight for migrants in northern France to be relocated far

:01:09.:01:13.

from the Port of Calais after a huge fire destroyed a camp housing 1,500

:01:14.:01:16.

people near Dunkirk. Wooden huts were reduced to ashes

:01:17.:01:20.

after the fire last night, which followed a large-scale fight

:01:21.:01:29.

between Afghan and Kurdish migrants. Riot police were called in and at

:01:30.:01:32.

least 10 people have been hurt. There had been concern that this

:01:33.:01:35.

camp was becoming increasingly unstable and ruled by people

:01:36.:01:43.

traffickers from The authorities had

:01:44.:01:44.

planned to shut it down. The flames might well have

:01:45.:01:53.

done that job for them. Big trouble happened

:01:54.:01:56.

with the Afghan people and Kurdish. Afghan people, first time,

:01:57.:01:58.

attacked Kurdish with a knife. Well, it is an eerie atmosphere

:01:59.:02:01.

here in the camp today. The fires are now out,

:02:02.:02:10.

but you can still smell What people used to call home is now

:02:11.:02:12.

largely reduced to ashes. The police ushered out any migrants

:02:13.:02:19.

who turned up today. Hundreds of migrants have been

:02:20.:02:21.

given temporary shelter But charities are warning

:02:22.:02:37.

that many have already What they were doing

:02:38.:02:41.

here, which was trying Do you think it is

:02:42.:02:48.

going to get worse? You know, I mean, it

:02:49.:02:53.

was bad here anyway. The closure of the Calais Jungle

:02:54.:02:57.

camp last October cost the numbers In February, we discovered migrants

:02:58.:03:02.

from Dunkirk where making nightly attempts to smuggle themselves

:03:03.:03:11.

into Kent using public And last month, five migrants

:03:12.:03:13.

were injured in clashes at Dunkirk. What this does is it puts

:03:14.:03:23.

more than 1000 migrants, all of them desperate,

:03:24.:03:26.

on the streets, around That means danger

:03:27.:03:28.

for our lorry drivers. The French authorities say

:03:29.:03:30.

that they are now trying to persuade the migrants to go

:03:31.:03:33.

to secure shelters. We need to round them

:03:34.:03:35.

up and get them back I think it is in the interests

:03:36.:03:40.

of Dover and Calais that we work together to ensure that the

:03:41.:03:48.

Dover-Calais trade route is And charities point out

:03:49.:03:50.

that the people who lived here have Lawyers for RiverOak -

the company that's hoping to reopen Manston Airport in East Kent -

:03:56.:04:06.

are threatening legal action against the leader

:04:07.:04:08.

of Thanet District Council, It follows an e-mail he sent

:04:09.:04:10.

to fellow councillors claiming that Belize,

:04:11.:04:13.

where one of RiverOak's key investors is based,

:04:14.:04:16.

is a "major money-laundering country" linked to the illegal drugs

:04:17.:04:18.

trade and human trafficking. Peter Whittlesea has

:04:19.:04:23.

our exclusive story. It might have closed by the company

:04:24.:04:34.

RiverOak, that plans to reopen Manston Airport, is threatening to

:04:35.:04:37.

sue the leader of Thanet District Council following comments he made

:04:38.:04:40.

regarding the company's financial interest in Central America. In an

:04:41.:04:45.

e-mail to a local resident and copy to 35 members of panic counsel,

:04:46.:04:52.

Chris Wells Road, Belize is one of 14 Caribbean nations named by the US

:04:53.:05:01.

as a money-laundering country, with transactions from international Mac

:05:02.:05:03.

to traffic in. And it is a shipment point for marijuana, cocaine and

:05:04.:05:09.

human trafficking is a concern. Campaigners say that they are

:05:10.:05:13.

shocked and reputable company trying to create employment in Thanet has

:05:14.:05:21.

been written about in this way. The allegations that RiverOak have

:05:22.:05:23.

something to do with unobscured country in South America is an

:05:24.:05:28.

extraordinary thing to say about apparently respectable organisation

:05:29.:05:31.

that has been trying hard for years to get a fair hearing. RiverOak's

:05:32.:05:37.

legal team have written to Chris Wells to demand an unqualified

:05:38.:05:39.

withdrawal of the allegations and an apology. Confirmation that you will

:05:40.:05:44.

recuse yourself from the involvement of any decision of Thanet District

:05:45.:05:50.

Council relating to the Manston Airport site. And payment of a

:05:51.:05:57.

significant sum in damages for the damage to the company's reputation.

:05:58.:06:04.

No, no comment at all. That was Chris Wells' response today. When

:06:05.:06:10.

elected as Ukip's first council leader, G promise to keep Thanet

:06:11.:06:13.

council out of the headlines. We will see what happens when we adopt

:06:14.:06:17.

a more calm approach and doing things, and we could find that

:06:18.:06:21.

Thanet council becomes less the object of people's attention and

:06:22.:06:24.

more the object of admiration because they simply get on with the

:06:25.:06:30.

job. But critics say that when it comes to Manston Airport, the

:06:31.:06:31.

council has not got the job done. We can cross live to

:06:32.:06:34.

Peter Whittlesea who's in Manston. Peter, what have RiverOak

:06:35.:06:38.

had to say today? RiverOak said that they gave Chris

:06:39.:06:46.

Wells a deadline of 5pm this evening to meet the demands he would face

:06:47.:06:49.

legal action. They have said he has not tonight corrected these

:06:50.:06:53.

libellous allegations but he has asked for extra time. The

:06:54.:06:58.

interesting thing is what happens next. Chris Wells does not defend

:06:59.:07:03.

this, then what his political opponents say is he will become a

:07:04.:07:05.

lame duck council leader because he will not be able to make crucial

:07:06.:07:08.

decisions when it comes to Manston Airport. If he does defend it, I

:07:09.:07:14.

understand these claims against him personally, not the council, so that

:07:15.:07:16.

the question is, does he have enough cash to fight a legal battle against

:07:17.:07:22.

a big company? Because we all know that legal battles can be expensive.

:07:23.:07:26.

Peter, thank you very much. The World War II scrapbook

:07:27.:07:28.

revealing what school life Medical experts have accused the NHS

:07:29.:07:31.

of prejudice against obese patients and even turning some away

:07:32.:07:44.

for surgery they desperately need. Last year, obesity was a factor

:07:45.:07:50.

in more than 33,000 hospital admissions in Kent, Surrey

:07:51.:07:53.

and Sussex - that's a 15% And it's estimated that

:07:54.:07:55.

obesity-related treatment costs the NHS more than

:07:56.:08:00.

?5 billion each year. Tonight, as Charlie Rose reports,

:08:01.:08:08.

one woman from East Sussex, who was forced to pay privately

:08:09.:08:11.

for weight-loss surgery, has said she would have died

:08:12.:08:13.

without the treatment. 52-year-old Karen, from Eastbourne,

:08:14.:08:15.

had her gastric bypass It is where the digestive

:08:16.:08:28.

system is re-routed past But the numbers of NHS surgeries

:08:29.:08:36.

are falling and Karen felt that she had no option but to pay

:08:37.:08:42.

for her treatment herself I was bloated out with water

retention and it was causing my Some view obesity

:08:46.:08:58.

as a lifestyle issue. Others see it as a disease that

:08:59.:09:02.

needs specialist treatment. Since April 2013, national policy

:09:03.:09:10.

stipulates that patients undergo a diet and lifestyle programme

:09:11.:09:13.

for two years called Tier 3 services Don't think I could have

:09:14.:09:16.

taken the risk, going I don't think I could

:09:17.:09:20.

have waited that long. In the UK, severe obesity rates have

:09:21.:09:24.

trebled over the last three years and type two diabetes has seen

:09:25.:09:33.

a similar rise. But in the last five years,

:09:34.:09:36.

the number of bariatric operations in the south-east,

:09:37.:09:40.

those are procedures such as fitting a gastric band

:09:41.:09:42.

or performing a gastric bypass, It might be that there is a bit

:09:43.:09:45.

of prejudice out there. It might be that people

:09:46.:09:55.

do not feel this sort of treatment is not only

:09:56.:09:57.

worthwhile, but deserved. Do you think there is any prejudice

:09:58.:10:06.

within health care professionals? Unfortunately, I have to say,

:10:07.:10:08.

yes, I think there is. This is surgery to improve

on South East Today, we'd like to hear from you.

There are just over three weeks to go, until we go to the polls

:14:23.:14:25.

in county council elections across the South East,

:14:26.:14:28.

and today the Ukip leader Paul Nuttall said he is expecting

:14:29.:14:31.

these elections to be the "most difficult" the party

:14:32.:14:34.

In 2009, there were no Ukip councillors elected

:14:35.:14:41.

in Kent, Sussex and Surrey But four years later, the party won a total

:14:42.:14:45.

Enough to make it the second-largest party and official opposition

:14:46.:14:55.

against the Conservatives. Our political editor Helen Catt

:14:56.:14:56.

is in Cliftonville, near Margate. Helen, Thanet has come

:14:57.:14:59.

to be seen as something For Ukip comment yes. In 2013, they

:15:00.:15:16.

won seven seats here in Thanet. It was wet night of Irish chose to make

:15:17.:15:21.

his Parliamentary run in 2015, so this area does not have just

:15:22.:15:25.

political importance but symbolic importance. A lot of trains eyes

:15:26.:15:31.

will look here. I caught up with the man in charge of that future,

:15:32.:15:34.

Parliament when he was canvassing today. It was a quieter affair than

:15:35.:15:40.

the sum of former Ukip readers that it is. Palme d'Or on his first trip

:15:41.:15:46.

to Thanet chose Broadstairs. They will represent the community and put

:15:47.:15:54.

the community needs first, and opposed to any building on green

:15:55.:15:58.

belt across the south-east. The Southeast has a huge problem with

:15:59.:16:03.

the number of people in the south-east. We need to keep Ukip on

:16:04.:16:07.

the pitch because we add the guard dogs of Brexit. Ukip gained almost

:16:08.:16:12.

40 seats across the region in 2013. It went on to win the European

:16:13.:16:18.

elections the week after, and take control of Thanet District Council.

:16:19.:16:22.

But in recent months, several power and profile members have quit,

:16:23.:16:27.

raising questions over the party's future relevance. I do not know what

:16:28.:16:33.

the future will be and others will speak for themselves, but for my own

:16:34.:16:39.

part, I wish ex-colleagues well. We have achieved our joint objective of

:16:40.:16:43.

winning a vote to get out of the EU. On the doorstep this morning, a vote

:16:44.:16:48.

of confidence. Ukip did get help to get is out of the EE you, but there

:16:49.:16:52.

are many other things that Ukip can do to help ring Brexit further on.

:16:53.:16:58.

Do you think there is still a role for them? Very much. These people in

:16:59.:17:06.

Cliftonville went entirely sure. I think they have achieved what they

:17:07.:17:09.

set out to and I have not heard any more. Anything Althea wanting to

:17:10.:17:15.

achieve. I do not think they are as relevant as they were before. There

:17:16.:17:19.

are other things happening in the world at the moment. If people stick

:17:20.:17:23.

to their guns and say they will stick with it no matter what, they

:17:24.:17:27.

should be all right. These will probably be the most difficult local

:17:28.:17:33.

elections we will face before 2020. There ran no illusions there, we

:17:34.:17:36.

know where we stand on this, but we are confident we will get Ukip

:17:37.:17:40.

councillors serving their communities well. By the way, these

:17:41.:17:46.

elections could be crucial in what comes next for Ukip. It is no

:17:47.:17:52.

challenge to underestimate for a party to win elections while still

:17:53.:17:56.

being in transition itself. Paul Nuttall told me the party is there

:17:57.:18:00.

to make sure to reason it walks the walk on Brexit, but it is not a

:18:01.:18:04.

single issue party. Trying to get some traction on the policies it has

:18:05.:18:09.

an social care, rail, that will be a challenge for them, too. We will be

:18:10.:18:14.

talking to Labour, the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats before

in paint like this, I don't know We'd started to bring primary school

:20:21.:20:25.

children down to visit the shelters, and when we really discovered

:20:26.:20:29.

the book of paintings, we thought it would be lovely to put

:20:30.:20:32.

these together in some way, partly so the primary school

:20:33.:20:35.

children could enjoy them and have But actually, also,

:20:36.:20:39.

so that we could give Miss Keen's paintings a wider audience,

:20:40.:20:43.

which is what I think they deserve. Her full story remains undiscovered,

:20:44.:20:46.

but Miss Keen's way of making sense of life during war in a school

no-one has been able to say But thanks to the latest

scanning technology, experts are actually able to reveal

:21:15.:21:19.

the name of the man It is beautiful, and spellbinding,

:21:20.:21:23.

in an eerie sort of way. It was made as the last resting

:21:24.:21:37.

place for an Egyptian man But it is a coffin lid,

:21:38.:21:40.

something we tend not But say the word "mummy",

:21:41.:21:46.

and our imagination let's rip. It is a very important object,

:21:47.:21:53.

and for our visitors, I think it is probably the most

:21:54.:21:55.

popular object with visitors. You just walk up the stairs,

:21:56.:21:58.

you do not expect to see something like this,

:21:59.:22:01.

so beautiful up here. Its exact origins remain

:22:02.:22:03.

undiscovered, and though it is marked with hieroglyphs,

:22:04.:22:07.

no-one knew the name That is until a group of visitors

:22:08.:22:10.

Today, Chiddingstone. Incredible what they can reveal with

technology. We started off today with a

:23:39.:23:56.

beautiful sunrise at Broadstairs, all calm and lovely with clear

:23:57.:24:03.

skies. That led to sunshine. Temperatures have climbed to around

:24:04.:24:07.

14 Celsius inland. It has been a touch cooler around the coast as we

:24:08.:24:12.

would expect. If we look at the satellite picture, new can see how

north, there is more clout. These will bring a lot more clout towards

us, but not a huge amount of rain. Qui risk eyes to the night and it

:24:26.:24:30.

will turn chilly just like last night. We could get down to three

:24:31.:24:36.

Celsius. For most places, we are starting at around six Celsius. Good

:24:37.:24:39.

spells of sunshine around the morning. Weather front is moving its

:24:40.:24:45.

way south, so thickening up the cloud. Later on, there is a small

:24:46.:24:50.

chance we will catch a shower or two, especially parts of North Kent.

:24:51.:24:54.

Through the afternoon, is temperatures will be similar. 14, 15

:25:07.:25:10.

Occasional showers, not everyone will see them. Certainly would not

the weather friend has cleared away, we're back to dry weather with good

:25:22.:25:26.

spells of sunshine. The cold front will introduce some cooler air

:25:27.:25:32.

throughout Thursday, so even with sunshine, we are looking

temperatures of around 11 Celsius. As far as Easter is concerned,

look too bad does it? Thank you very much, Nina.

:25:48.:25:48.

Before we go, let's recap tonight's top stories.

:25:49.:25:50.

British calls for additional sanctions against Russia to force

:25:51.:25:52.

it to withdraw support for Syria's President Assad

:25:53.:25:54.

have been rejected by G7 foreign ministers.

:25:55.:25:58.

The High Court has ruled that doctors can withdraw life support

:25:59.:26:01.

from a baby with a rare genetic condition, against

:26:02.:26:04.

And south-east politicians have called tonight for migrants

:26:05.:26:10.

in northern France to be relocated far from the Port of Calais,

:26:11.:26:13.

after a huge fire destroyed a camp housing 1,500 people near Dunkirk.

:26:14.:26:21.

We can cross over to Dunkirk now to our reporter. Do we know what is

:26:22.:26:28.

going to happen to the hundreds of migrants living in the camp there?

:26:29.:26:34.

1500 migrants call this place their home. The police are still here

:26:35.:26:38.

tonight stopping any of them returning. I think the authorities

:26:39.:26:43.

will try to disperse the migrants to centres across France, like when

:26:44.:26:47.

there was the closure of the Calle jungle. But some may not want to go.

:26:48.:26:52.

The front runner in the French presidential election has joined the

:26:53.:26:57.

debate. His team say that France is increasingly acting as bodyguards

:26:58.:27:02.

for the UK and that many to be discussed during Brexit. That is it

:27:03.:27:06.

for us from this evening. We will have updates in our late Litton at

:27:07.:27:08.

10:25pm. There have never been

:27:09.:27:35.

so many people in work - that's what the Government

:27:36.:27:37.

keeps telling us. But what's the reality of this

:27:38.:27:39.

Tory jobs bonanza?
