wreckage of the EgyptAir plane that crashed en route from Paris to

:00:16.:00:19.

Cairo. This is the plane on a previous flight. It fell more than

7000 metres before disappearing from radar. The debris has been found in

from its plane which crashed with 66 people on board,

has been found in the eastern Flight MS804 left Paris

:01:14.:01:20.

on Wednesday, heading for Cairo. It was tracked by radar all the way

disappeared about 10 minutes The plane was flying at 37,000

:01:37.:01:42.

"the plane carried out "a 90-degree turn to the left

:01:43.:01:45.

and a 360-degree turn to the right, "falling to 15,000 feet before

:01:46.:01:48.

:01:49.:01:51.

in the search has posted these pictures on his Facebook page,

from the Egyptian capital, Cairo. Their loved ones left Paris

:01:58.:02:07.

on a flight before midnight. They woke to the reality

:02:08.:02:17.

that they were gone, 66 people, including crew,

:02:18.:02:19.

took flight MS804 to Cairo. The passengers were mostly

:02:20.:02:22.

French and Egyptian. It has just been confirmed

:02:23.:02:24.

that he was Richard Osman, a mining company executive who had

:02:25.:02:28.

worked in Egypt for many years. Here, radar tracks the aircraft,

:02:29.:02:34.

its red tail speeding across the Mediterranean,

:02:35.:02:37.

until suddenly, it disappears. Was this a terror attack

:02:38.:02:41.

or mechanical failure? France's president says nothing

:02:42.:02:45.

should be ruled out. TRANSLATION: We also have the duty

:02:46.:02:49.

to know everything about the causes No hypothesis should be

:02:50.:02:53.

ruled out or preferred. In Cairo, relatives

:02:54.:03:00.

gathered at the airport. Families have been arriving

:03:01.:03:03.

here all morning, desperate to find out any information they can

:03:04.:03:17.

on what happened to flight MS804. The flight was just 20

:03:18.:03:19.

minutes from landing here at Cairo International Airport

:03:20.:03:21.

when, according to the authorities, it simply vanished, without anyone

:03:22.:03:24.

in, without any distress call. This woman explains,

:03:25.:03:26.

my daughter was a stewardess. Another says, we are worried

:03:27.:03:28.

and afraid, and we are hearing different things on the internet

:03:29.:03:34.

which we don't know Egypt's aviation minister was

:03:35.:03:37.

called on for answers, but Minister, if I could just ask you,

:03:38.:03:42.

do you have any security concerns about anyone on the plane,

:03:43.:03:48.

whether they were passengers, whether they were crew, whether they

:03:49.:03:50.

were on the flight deck? Nothing has been

:03:51.:03:53.

reported about that. We haven't got any kind

:03:54.:03:55.

of security concerns about a specific person,

:03:56.:03:57.

but don't forget that the investigation is still going on,

:03:58.:03:59.

and I'm pretty sure that there is a profiling process

:04:00.:04:03.

for people on board, the security departments,

:04:04.:04:07.

or the concerned security divisions, Shortly afterwards, a ship's captain

:04:08.:04:11.

posted this picture - a yellow life jacket,

:04:12.:04:18.

and part of an airline seat, In Egypt this evening,

:04:19.:04:21.

families continue to wait for news, burdened by the knowledge that

:04:22.:04:29.

officials here think this was more likely a terror

:04:30.:04:31.

attack than an accident. Let's get the latest

:04:32.:04:40.

from Kevin Connolly in Cairo. Kevin, this news that the wreckage

:04:41.:04:55.

has been found, however going down with the families there? Well, I

:04:56.:05:00.

think the discovery about wreckage and confirmation that it is from the

:05:01.:05:05.

plane, does two things, really. First, it extinguishes any lingering

:05:06.:05:08.

hopes that the families might have had. They now know for sure that

:05:09.:05:12.

they have been waiting for a flight which will now never arrive. So I

:05:13.:05:17.

suppose for them, the horror of uncertainty is replaced by the agony

:05:18.:05:21.

of grief. At a more practical level, it also means that the authorities

:05:22.:05:25.

are beginning to assemble the physical evidence they need to

:05:26.:05:29.

establish what happened to the aircraft, why it came down, so

:05:30.:05:32.

discovering that debris is a beginning. They will, of course,

:05:33.:05:38.

need to discover the on-board flight recorders as well, but I think it is

:05:39.:05:41.

fair to say that we are closer now to a point where the authorities

:05:42.:05:45.

will begin to establish pretty quickly the story of the plane's

:05:46.:05:51.

final and fatal moments. And we were hearing earlier that some of the

:05:52.:05:54.

families were frustrated about how slow information was coming out.

:05:55.:06:00.

What is the situation now? Has that improved?

:06:01.:06:04.

I don't think it has. I think there were a couple of issues there, one

:06:05.:06:08.

being the nature of the modern world, of course. Stories are

:06:09.:06:11.

buzzing around the internet from all over Europe and further afield about

:06:12.:06:15.

what may or may not have happened to the plane, a lot of explanation and

:06:16.:06:20.

speculation, lots of bits and pieces of information. The families are

:06:21.:06:25.

aware of those, and Egypt, of course, as a society, does not have

:06:26.:06:29.

that tradition of free reporting, and so official information here

:06:30.:06:33.

comes very slowly. So for the families, they will be the agony of

:06:34.:06:37.

knowing the kind of stories that are circulating everywhere and not

:06:38.:06:39.

hearing what their own government things about them. I think there is

:06:40.:06:43.

not really very much to be done about that. You will see again, as

:06:44.:06:48.

debris stars to be found, that will intensify speculation on the

:06:49.:06:52.

internet. The families are following that, but then there is an enormous

:06:53.:06:56.

lag between that unofficial information and speculation and

:06:57.:06:59.

concrete word from the Egyptian government about what they are

:07:00.:07:02.

saying really happened. OK, Kevin Connelly, in Cairo, thank

:07:03.:07:05.

you very much for the update. Investigators will need to gather

:07:06.:07:08.

much more information than is available right now before

:07:09.:07:10.

deciding what caused the crash. Here's our Transport

:07:11.:07:13.

Correspondent Richard Westcott. As more victims' families head

:07:14.:07:18.

for Cairo, the question remains - was this an accident,

:07:19.:07:21.

or something more sinister? Well, the aircraft

:07:22.:07:23.

was an Airbus A320, and if you've ever flown,

:07:24.:07:29.

the chances are, you've It's one of the most common planes

:07:30.:07:32.

on earth, and it does And this is footage of the actual

:07:33.:07:37.

aircraft that disappeared. Now, this aircraft was delivered

:07:38.:07:43.

to EgyptAir in November 2003, and we also know that the captain

:07:44.:07:49.

and the co-pilot were So, let's have a look

:07:50.:07:52.

at what the radar tells us Well, having taken off from Paris

:07:53.:07:57.

in the late evening, everything was normal for more

:07:58.:08:02.

than three hours. Greek controllers say

:08:03.:08:04.

the pilot is in good spirits Half an hour after that,

:08:05.:08:07.

repeated radio calls go unanswered. Controllers raise the alarm,

:08:08.:08:13.

but the plane has simply TRANSLATION: It made

:08:14.:08:16.

a 90-degree turn to the left, and then a 360-degree turn

:08:17.:08:23.

towards the right, descending from 37,000

:08:24.:08:27.

to 15,000 feet. This is why terrorism

:08:28.:08:30.

can't be ruled out. A Russian airliner full

:08:31.:08:36.

of tourists was brought down It is widely believed a group linked

:08:37.:08:38.

to the so-called Islamic State They have vowed to target Egypt,

:08:39.:08:43.

and westerners who visit. It appears that there's been some

:08:44.:08:49.

catastrophic event at 37,000 feet, and the most likely thing to have

:08:50.:08:55.

happened is actually some kind of an explosion inside

:08:56.:09:00.

the aeroplane itself. This is the room at Cranfield

:09:01.:09:04.

University where air accident investigators from all

:09:05.:09:08.

over the world have Experts here say there

:09:09.:09:10.

will be early clues, Generally, within a few hours,

:09:11.:09:15.

we started to get a picture of what may have occurred,

:09:16.:09:21.

but the detail of the investigation will take many months,

:09:22.:09:24.

sometimes even years, to fully understand

:09:25.:09:28.

what may have happened, and where the lessons

:09:29.:09:30.

learned may be. So, it's an anxious

:09:31.:09:32.

wait for the families, and for all flyers, like these

:09:33.:09:34.

people, off to Cairo today. We can join him now. James, what is

:09:35.:09:53.

the latest on the situation there that you are hearing?

:09:54.:10:00.

We understand that three members of France's bureau of investigation and

:10:01.:10:03.

analysis will tonight be on their way to Cairo to advise and assist

:10:04.:10:08.

the Egyptian authorities with the search for that wreckage, in

:10:09.:10:13.

particular, the French government says those three experts may be able

:10:14.:10:17.

to advise on underwater searches for those flight recorders, which, as

:10:18.:10:21.

you know, in the signals which will want to be picked up by rescuers. In

:10:22.:10:26.

addition, one more person that will be travelling from Paris to Cairo is

:10:27.:10:29.

a technical advisor from Airbus is self. Airbus is based in France, and

:10:30.:10:34.

that investigated may be able to help understand what happened on

:10:35.:10:38.

that plane. So France is playing a part in the investigation, but I

:10:39.:10:42.

think the key thing to stress is, it will not be the major player in the

:10:43.:10:47.

investigation. This was an Egyptian plane, most people on board were

:10:48.:10:51.

Egyptian, and the debris may be returned to Egypt itself, so it

:10:52.:10:54.

seems likely the investigation itself will be led by Egypt. France

:10:55.:10:57.

will have to assist, but it will have to put a lot of faith into

:10:58.:11:02.

organisations in that country which it may not believe have a

:11:03.:11:06.

particularly great track record in independent investigations.

:11:07.:11:10.

And what is the situation at the airport there? Has security been

:11:11.:11:14.

noticeably stepped up? It has, but I should say at the

:11:15.:11:18.

moment, things look reasonably normal around me. There was a flight

:11:19.:11:24.

for Air China which decked in about an hour ago, a flight for cats are

:11:25.:11:28.

Airways, which is checking in at the moment. Restaurants are open, and

:11:29.:11:33.

occasionally you see heavily armed soldiers and policemen patrolling,

:11:34.:11:36.

but over the last few months, in particular, since the November

:11:37.:11:40.

attacks, Paris has been on a state of alert anyway, so security in the

:11:41.:11:44.

airport has now become normal. What is the latest on the situation

:11:45.:11:47.

regarding the families and friends of those who were on board we

:11:48.:11:56.

understand that earlier in the day, some families, particularly those of

:11:57.:12:00.

the 15 French people on board, were invited on to a special EgyptAir

:12:01.:12:05.

flight which went to Cairo, and essentially, they may have decided

:12:06.:12:08.

there was little point being here when the centre of affairs, the

:12:09.:12:12.

centre of action, is Cairo itself. We don't now how many families may

:12:13.:12:15.

have boarded that particular flight, we don't know if other families of

:12:16.:12:19.

other nationalities are in Paris, or have decided not to go to Cairo.

:12:20.:12:22.

James Reynolds in Cairo, thank you. With me now in the studio is Chris

:12:23.:12:31.

Phillips, former head of the UK's National Counterterrorism Security

:12:32.:12:36.

Office. We heard from James there that investigators from France are

:12:37.:12:40.

on their way to the site. What will be investigating teams be doing now?

:12:41.:12:45.

The first thing they will want to do is get hold of the black boxes that

:12:46.:12:48.

are linked to this aeroplane, so they will do everything they can to

:12:49.:12:52.

get those. Those will give them the definitive answer on what happened

:12:53.:12:56.

inside that plane. Of course, security services in different parts

:12:57.:13:00.

of the world will also be looking at who the people were on that plane,

:13:01.:13:04.

if there was anyone there that may have taken a bomb, for example, onto

:13:05.:13:09.

the plane, and also the locations where the plane has been, certainly

:13:10.:13:12.

in the last 24 hours, because these planes travel all over the world,

:13:13.:13:15.

stopping up a lot of different airports. Each airport is

:13:16.:13:19.

potentially the place where a device may have been put onto the plane. So

:13:20.:13:24.

there is lots of work to do, but the first thing is to get hold of those

:13:25.:13:27.

black boxes. If it turns out to be some sort of

:13:28.:13:32.

explosive device, how sure are you when you heard what had happened,

:13:33.:13:36.

when you heard about the description of the plane veering to the left and

:13:37.:13:40.

to the right, losing altitude rapidly, what were your first

:13:41.:13:45.

thoughts? My first thoughts were that this was almost certainly some

:13:46.:13:48.

form of terrorist attack. The reason I would say that is, we need to bear

:13:49.:13:53.

in mind that these Airbuses are just so reliable, and very rarely do they

:13:54.:13:58.

have any major incidents. Even if they do, the pilot can almost

:13:59.:14:01.

invariably contact the ground and let them know what has happened, and

:14:02.:14:05.

that something is happening. I have got to take over and fly the plane

:14:06.:14:08.

first, but the second thing they would do is immediately radio and

:14:09.:14:12.

SOS call. That did not happen, and what we saw was the plane dropped

:14:13.:14:20.

very quickly down towards the sea, and that tends to indicate something

:14:21.:14:25.

catastrophic has happened at 37,000 feet, in a pressurised environment,

:14:26.:14:28.

where potentially, there has been a whole of some form in the fusilade,

:14:29.:14:35.

and that whole will cause a depressurisation, and losing the air

:14:36.:14:39.

plane. -- that hole. It would be interesting to get your

:14:40.:14:43.

thoughts on one particular point. The families have spoken at their

:14:44.:14:46.

frustration at how long it has taken to get information, how slow the

:14:47.:14:49.

flow of information has been getting to them. As someone who has worked

:14:50.:14:54.

in counterterrorism, why is there that delay for people who are

:14:55.:14:56.

desperate to find out what has happened to develop 1's?

:14:57.:15:00.

This is a sign of The Times. We are so used to information coming at us

:15:01.:15:03.

within seconds of an incident, we are used to the idea that we'll find

:15:04.:15:08.

out immediately. What the Egyptian and French authorities do is give

:15:09.:15:12.

false, wrong information, so they will only say something when they

:15:13.:15:17.

know it is a fact. Now, obviously, it takes a long time for that to

:15:18.:15:21.

happen, and even though they have got all of the intelligence in the

:15:22.:15:24.

world, they are not going to come out and say something that is not

:15:25.:15:27.

true. So it is important that they go through the stages to say, we

:15:28.:15:31.

must have accurate information, not just supposition that we and other

:15:32.:15:36.

people can make. Really good to have you with us, and

:15:37.:15:40.

we will catch up with you later. Thank you very much.

:15:41.:15:41.

Now a look at some of the day's other news.

:15:42.:15:44.

Heavy rain and loose ground is hindering the search for victims

:15:45.:15:46.

Dozens of houses have been buried or flattened in one hilly area.

:15:47.:15:50.

Rescue workers say more than 130 missing people could have died.

:15:51.:15:53.

Days of torrential rains have flooded large parts of the island.

:15:54.:15:58.

The first of the missing Nigerian schoolgirls to be rescued

:15:59.:16:03.

from Boko Haram militants has met President Buhari in Abuja.

:16:04.:16:05.

Amina Ali Nkeki, who is 19, was found with a baby

:16:06.:16:08.

by an army-backed vigilante group on Tuesday in the huge

:16:09.:16:10.

Sambisa Forest, close to the border with Cameroon.

:16:11.:16:14.

After the meeting, the President said the government would

:16:15.:16:16.

make continuing Amina's education a priority.

:16:17.:16:20.

The Scottish golf club Muirfield has lost the chance to host

:16:21.:16:23.

the prestigious Open Championship after its members voted

:16:24.:16:26.

The club said women would continue to be welcomed as guests.

:16:27.:16:36.

But the governing body of the Open said the event could not be staged

:16:37.:16:40.

by a club that that did not admit women as full members.

:16:41.:16:43.

It is one of the greatest challenges faced by doctors and surgeons -

:16:44.:16:46.

the growing resistance to antibiotics,

:16:47.:16:48.

largely because they are prescribed inappropriately.

:16:49.:16:52.

Now a new report is warning that if nothing is done,

:16:53.:16:54.

superbugs will kill someone, somewhere in the world

:16:55.:16:57.

Our Medical Correspondent Fergus Walsh reports.

:16:58.:17:05.

In the pre-antibiotic era, patients like Lily would simply have died.

:17:06.:17:12.

She spent two weeks critically ill in Birmingham Children's Hospital

:17:13.:17:18.

with a drug-resistant bacterial infection,

:17:19.:17:20.

They weren't sure which infections she had.

:17:21.:17:25.

It's amazing how these anitbiotics have cured our daughter.

:17:26.:17:30.

This is what other sick kids experience, and it really makes

:17:31.:17:35.

The economist who led the review into superbugs say they could kill

:17:36.:17:47.

more people than cancer by 2050, unless antibiotics are safeguarded.

:17:48.:17:49.

What we really need is efforts to reduce demand, and stop treating

:17:50.:17:52.

these things like sweets, so an awareness campaign,

:17:53.:18:01.

dramatic reduction of the misuse in agriculture.

:18:02.:18:04.

These things can permanently solve the problem.

:18:05.:18:07.

The review says rapid diagnostic tests should be developed,

:18:08.:18:10.

so patients get antibiotics only if their infection is bacterial.

:18:11.:18:15.

There should be major restrictions on the use of antibiotics

:18:16.:18:18.

There would be a levy on drug companies to pay for research,

:18:19.:18:23.

Gentamicin. Cefaroxin.

:18:24.:18:34.

Chances are, at some point, your life will depend

:18:35.:18:37.

on an antibiotic. But their Golden Age is over.

:18:38.:18:41.

There hasn't been a completely new class of these drugs in decades,

:18:42.:18:45.

and unless the world takes action, then in a few years,

:18:46.:18:49.

you could come to hospital with a simple infection,

:18:50.:18:52.

and the doctors and nurses will not be able to treat it.

:18:53.:18:56.

Doctors are already seeing worrying signs that the superbugs

:18:57.:19:01.

During the course of my career, I have noticed already quite a sharp

:19:02.:19:07.

increase in the number of resistant bacteria

:19:08.:19:09.

We have had to change the antibiotics we are

:19:10.:19:13.

If we run out, then I don't know what we will do.

:19:14.:19:19.

And we all need educating about how to prevent the spread

:19:20.:19:21.

of germs and infections if antibiotics are to continue

:19:22.:19:26.

The preventative benefits of taking aspirin have been

:19:27.:19:36.

But now researchers from Oxford University say it should

:19:37.:19:39.

be given immediately to people who've suffered strokes.

:19:40.:19:42.

They say taking the blood-thinning drug reduces the risk of further

Here's our health correspondent Adam Brimelow.

:19:47.:19:53.

Earlier this month, John Mason suffered a minor stroke.

:19:54.:19:56.

He first noticed when he had trouble reading his e-mails.

:19:57.:19:58.

He was taken to A, and on the way, took an aspirin

:19:59.:20:01.

I was aware of the beneficial effects of taking aspirin,

:20:02.:20:05.

but I had no idea how significant they were, and it's very,

:20:06.:20:09.

very reassuring that I can carry on with my life,

:20:10.:20:16.

knowing that the actions I have taken and the support I have had

:20:17.:20:19.

mean there is a very low chance of a recurrence.

:20:20.:20:24.

Researchers at Oxford University say that for every 100,000 people over

:20:25.:20:26.

50 in the UK, one is likely to have a stroke every day.

:20:27.:20:29.

But in the days after symptoms of a minor stroke, the risk

:20:30.:20:36.

Taking aspirin immediately brings this down to about one in 100.

:20:37.:20:46.

That is an 80% reduction in the risk of another stroke,

:20:47.:20:48.

and where they do occur, they are likely to be less severe.

:20:49.:20:51.

Nearly two weeks on from his stroke, John Mason is taking it easy,

:20:52.:20:54.

He can get out in the garden and enjoy life.

:20:55.:20:58.

This is a case of the patient doing the right thing at the right time,

:20:59.:21:02.

meaning the risk of a major stroke was much reduced.

:21:03.:21:05.

But the researchers say the message for doctors and the public

:21:06.:21:08.

about the benefits of aspirin in this situation needs

:21:09.:21:12.

We need to encourage people, if they think they have had some

:21:13.:21:17.

neurological symptoms that might be a minor stroke,

:21:18.:21:21.

they should take aspirin immediately, as well as ideally

:21:22.:21:24.

NHS England says these findings will need to be

:21:25.:21:28.

New stroke guidelines for doctors are due out in the autumn.

:21:29.:21:36.

A memorial service has been held in London for Sir Nicholas Winton,

:21:37.:21:40.

who rescued hundreds of children from the Holocaust in the months

:21:41.:21:44.

Sir Nicholas organised the "Kindertransport",

:21:45.:21:47.

in which more than 600 mostly Jewish children came to Britain by train

:21:48.:21:51.

from Czechoslovakia in 1939. Sophie Long reports.

A mother kisses her child goodbye, knowing she may

Prague Station, early 1939, and young boys and girls head

:22:02.:22:09.

to Britain to avoid the Nazi invasion of Czechoslovakia,

:22:10.:22:11.

and the subsequent persecution of Jewish and other minority

:22:12.:22:14.

Today, those children, now elderly men and women,

:22:15.:22:23.

gathered to celebrate the life of the man who gave them a future.

:22:24.:22:29.

Nicholas Winton was just 28, a young stockbroker in London,

:22:30.:22:35.

when he organised trains to take Jewish children to safety

:22:36.:22:37.

His kindertransport operation saved 669 children,

:22:38.:22:43.

but for many years, he harboured an overriding regret

:22:44.:22:46.

He kept quiet about what he had done until his wife found a scrapbook

:22:47.:22:52.

Back here, you will see, is the list of all the children.

:22:53.:23:00.

Finally, in 1988, Esther Rantzen publicised what he did on her TV

:23:01.:23:04.

Vera Githing is here tonight. Hello, Vera.

:23:05.:23:10.

And I should tell you, you are actually sitting next

:23:11.:23:13.

So hello! APPLAUSE

:23:14.:23:26.

Is there anyone in our audience tonight who owes their life

:23:27.:23:28.

Anyone who owes their life to Nicky Winton, would

:23:29.:23:41.

28 years later, it is estimated between five and 7,000 people do.

:23:42.:23:48.

One of them is 92-year-old Kurt Hausig.

:23:49.:23:51.

He still remembers the train journey from Prague.

:23:52.:23:54.

He went on to become a Spitfire pilot.

:23:55.:24:01.

Bio everything to him. And so does the rest of the family, and every

:24:02.:24:10.

other child. Everything. Without him, nothing would have happened. --

former head of the UK's With me is Chris Phillips,

:24:32.:24:40.

former head of the UK's National Counterterrorism

:24:41.:24:49.

Security Office. Presumably the investigation will

:24:50.:24:55.

now be looking to find out what caused that crash. How will they be

:24:56.:25:00.

doing that? I think they will start, first and foremost, with the people

:25:01.:25:03.

on the plane, and unable to the plane itself and see where it has

:25:04.:25:07.

been. We know it has been a Charles de Gaulle Airport. We know only a

:25:08.:25:10.

couple of months ago that Charles de Gaulle Airport was a bit concerned

:25:11.:25:13.

about the people had working air side that may have terrorist

:25:14.:25:19.

tendencies, or certainly coming from an area where there is more

:25:20.:25:22.

terrorism than other places. The aeroplane is effectively a bus. That

:25:23.:25:29.

aeroplane has taken off and landed in numerous airports in the last

:25:30.:25:33.

couple of days, and I think the focus may end up turning to those

:25:34.:25:37.

airports, because, of course, you can put a device onto a plane, and

:25:38.:25:41.

you can put a time a situation that will make it go off at some point in

:25:42.:25:45.

the future. That is possibly what has happened. We're not sure yet,

:25:46.:25:49.

but it is certainly one line of enquiry.

:25:50.:25:51.

Thank you very much for that. We will keep across the latest of that

:25:52.:25:55.

investigation, and you can find details on our live page. That is it
