The quiet dignity of Muslims leading a service of hope
and solidarity with the victims of the London terror attacks.
If you stay quiet, say nothing, then people only hear the negative
messages and voices which are around everywhere.
The crippling cost of petty crime and its impact
Why this woman's sounding off about cinema chains and the lack
I have to go and watch it on that day and that time and if I don't go,
And we'll hear the story behind a full-size caravan made
It was a show of quiet dignity and of solidarity with the victims
While Westminster paused for today's service of hope and reconciliation,
members of the Muslim community here in the South gathered
with people from all faiths, as a mark of respect,
and to demonstrate their absolute rejection of terrorism.
Joe Campbell was at the event, in Newbury.
They marched partly in silence but the message was loud and clear. We
are British but we are British Muslim and we live in this country,
loved by their rules and regulations of the land. They still have it
tends to meet everybody. This event may have been organised by new's
Moslem community can they claim it was open to all. People came from
all sections of the time. Buyers coming out this week and being vocal
about it, that we are united, we condemn the act of violence and we
pray and our thoughts are with the victim's family, that is the message
we want to send out to comfort those -- to confront the others that are
in the media and other places. We pray for those in the Westminster
attack, from -- for the family, friends and colleagues of those
killed. Outside the town Hall, Muslim and Christian prayers.
Flowers from those of all faiths and none. If the -- if the intention was
to divide communities, the clear objective of today's march was to
show that Shearer, they failed. We, in this community, a community that
is changing, more trips are people coming to live here, we are
determined to understand and be one community, to be tolerant. And then,
two weeks to the minute, a time to remember. The crowd hushed but
speaking with one voice. The current terror threat in the UK
is rated as "severe", which means an attack
is highly likely. In Guildford today, the second
of two special events was held to help businesses prepare
for the worst IF something This from our home affairs
correspondent, Peter Cooke. Nice, Berlin, London,
but where next? This morning, more than 100 people
from Guildford's business community were told how they could stop
it being them. The counter-terrorism workshop
was organised the town's Business Crime Reduction Partnership
before the attack in You don't know where it is great to
happen. It doesn't have to be an iconic location. The idea is to
teach and today, to plan and prepare.
This is one of hundreds of similar events run by the South East Counter
Terrorist Unit since it was set up in 2009.
But what should people be looking out for?
Terrorists will visit the scene they are targeting somewhere. It is about
asking unusual questions, trying to seek information that you wouldn't
normally be in the public domain. Just really working out with the
vulnerable points are of an EDS are the to attack it.

She realises the training could help save lives in the future.
Definitely very informative. It is something that is not impossible or
probable to have it happen in Surrey or Guildford itself. I took all the
court away from it today and I getting it will be transferring it
to my staff and it's made us more aware that it is something that can
happen at any moment. The threat of terrorism
in the South remains very real, In 2015 a Reading couple,
Mohammed Rehman and Sana Ahmed Khan, were jailed for plotting to bomb
locations in London. The security services remain
concerned about the changing Vehicles have been the weapon of
choice in recent incidents. Any future attacks from the radicalised
or disaffected could strike anywhere. Whilst not wishing to
alarm, this training was about training and preparing our
businesses and communities for that potential reality.

To keep themselves safe, convenience stores around
the country are spending around ?4,000 per year, fitting CCTV,

Linda Dean is a film buff but because she's deaf,
sometimes the first time she can see a new release is when it comes out
Not every film is shown with subtitles in the cinema
and you can wait for weeks if they are.
I'd like to be relaxed about my social life and go
spontaneously where I want to go, when I feel comfortable,
without having to think, oh, I have to go and watch it on that
day at that time - and if I don't go, I'm going to miss it.
And I must say, some of that time I've actually been to the cinema
at Basingstoke or other locations and I've been told there
is a subtitle showing and actually, it's not subtitled, so I've
travelled all that way for nothing and that's even more disappointing.
There's no point in me having a choice, there's no equality.
So, I do feel like I'm discriminated against.
Linda is in Newbury with her friend Victoria to see what films
There are just a handful on with subtitles this week,
They don't have any awareness of the shows for next week,
no information on the website is clear enough, so I think
probably more training is needed for staff members.

Similar technology's already in use in the US and Australia.
Can you imagine the first cinema chain that operated
How much reputationally, how much benefit would that be?
In terms of their general business brand but also
You'd have deaf people just going to that cinema chain.
So, I almost feel that they're not taking advantage of a great
opportunity that's right in front of them.
Until things change, Linda and some of the 11 million

They have to recreate the experience at home.
Earlier, I spoke to doctor Roger Wicks, who's director
of policy at the charity Action on Hearing Loss, and I asked him
if cinemas are obliged to offer subtitles.
Yes, under the Equality Act, all providers of services
reasonable adjustments for people with disabilities.
For cinemas, this means hearing loops and it means subtitles.
So is this an issue where you regularly hear complaints?
One in six people have hearing loss and many of them regularly use
subtitles on television and in the cinema.
It's a regular source of complaint, films put on with subtitles
at difficult times of the day and not being advertised at all.
There is huge demand for subtitles in cinemas.
In Tom's report, we saw somebody wearing glasses that project
the subtitles but only the wearer is seeing those.
Is technology the answer, do you think?
It is definitely part of the long-term solution, yes.
The UK Cinema Association is working hard with us on different technical
solutions and glasses, so-called invisible technology,
where the subtitles are only visible to the person wearing glasses,

Definitely talk to your cinema, manager when you want subtitles

way of getting children to improve their maths
and English skills. A tournament's being held
in West Sussex this evening where youngsters compete
in a version of the sport that's geared-up to help
with their academic results. For this afternoon only, this is the
version of the Crucible. This is the first snooker tournament they have
had year. 50 children and for local schools taking part. The trophies
are here, ready to go. A quarter and the semifinals are going on. Here's
a flavour of today's action. I just love playing people and the
game and just the concentration, because some people think it's
boring but actually think it's great fun because it gives you something
to do every now and again. Habitually fun. It's something
different. It is something we're not used to seeing in skills. We see Ed
on television and four children the stage, they think, I would like to
go go at. My first night is on table one. They
are raiding the rating to go. Yes. Are you feeling confident? Yes. I am
feeling good about it. I feel like I can get to the semifinals. It all
looks great fun, doesn't it? But there is a next -- and educational
side to it as well. Stephen runs the after school snooker club. Tell
others about functional snooker. That is based on helping the
children with their education and it helps them with their mathematics
and the literature, dear social skills. For example, we have
numbered balls here, we have some traction, addition and we have teams
and all the Red Bulls are numbered one to ten. And it just helps them.
You have had some great results with children who aren't so great with
their numeracy, haven't you? We have had amazing results, especially with
people who don't learn very well traditionally or people with
disabilities moral learning disabilities and they really take to
it, especially, as I say, the different way of learning commented
that structured classroom environment. Just briefly, it is
very popular in Asia, but not so much year after its 1980s heyday.
Are you trying to spot future talents as well? We certainly are.
I'm sure we've seen some future world champion to you. We're working
very hard to draw the game. We have this programme and the functional
snooker programme and we are working on snooker skills. I have to stop
you there. Although this is the first tournament, there are already
plans to make it an annual event. Now, not all road users are fans
of the humble caravan but a very special one has just gone on show
at the National Motor Yes, what makes this full size
caravan unusual is that it's made out of Lego bricks,
lots of them. It also has working lights,
and running water. The world-record breaking
construction took 12 model-makers from Hampshire over 1,000 hours
to build, and they've incorporated Sarah Farmer's been to take a look
and she's there for us now. Hello. Have a look at this for a
world record breaker. 215,000, 158 books have gone into this build of a
life-sized replica caravan. It has all the comforts as well. A cup of
tea, toast, freshly cut flowers, Leeds, running water and the works.
Dan Connolly is from the team behind this project. Tellers a little bit
about why you decided to do this. Apart from everybody loves Lego, the
idea was to support freedom of leisure vehicles and the old days
you can go on. The concept of caravanning has evolved over the
years. The idea behind it was to challenge ourselves. We had 12
difficult -- dedicated experts, over a thousand man-hours to build this
replica. The detail is absolutely fascinating. Thank you for joining
us. Well, it is here at the National motor Museum through the holidays

we'll get going with a look at the satellite picture. Not too much
cloud but generally, all of us seeing some pretty sunny spells. I
must say we have a few more of those to come in the next few days.

can drop the a touch but steering clear of the menace when we saw last
night. Until tomorrow morning, we get off to a bright start to the
day. We will see temperatures of around eight Celsius as people are
getting up, but it looks like we'll have some sunny spells. More cloud
in the picture than have had through the course of today. Tomorrow
afternoon, temperatures up to 12 Celsius but we could see those
temperatures nudging up to the Celsius.
Can make you want again tonight, but there will be cloud. Temperatures
reflect that, with the cloud, seven or eight Celsius, and they will fall
lower if we had the brakes on the cloud. Looking ahead to the
remainder of this week, dizzy promising few days ahead, so for
Friday, yes, it will be cloudy at pains but who will start to see some
blue skies and a sunny spells through much of the day. We start to
get a change in that wind direction. It looks as if we will have some
warm conditions to take is into the weekend, possibly topping 20
