I'm Kasia Madera.

0:00:060:00:08

Our top stories: Theresa May

spells out what she calls

0:00:080:00:11

the hard facts of Brexit.

0:00:110:00:14

In a major policy speech,

the British Prime Minister

0:00:140:00:16

claims the UK and the EU were now

close to a deal on the transition.

0:00:160:00:23

We both need to face the fact that

this is a negotiation and neither of

0:00:230:00:30

us can have exactly what we want.

0:00:300:00:31

Italy goes to the polls on Sunday

with the familiar face

0:00:310:00:34

of Silvio Berlusconi back

on the election trail.

0:00:340:00:36

Severe weather continues

to bring chaos

0:00:360:00:37

to large parts of Europe.

0:00:370:00:39

At least 59 people have died

in sub-zero temperatures.

0:00:390:00:47

She's in a lot of pain and it looks

as if she's going to give birth or

0:00:470:00:54

something but she's not pregnant.

0:00:540:00:56

And a dramatic delivery

of a baby for a Welsh couple

0:00:560:00:58

but they didn't even know

that mum was pregnant.

0:00:580:01:06

Hello and welcome

to World News Today.

0:01:080:01:15

UK Prime Minister Theresa May

has outlined her vision

0:01:150:01:18

of Britain's future relationship

with the European Union.

0:01:180:01:22

She reiterated that the UK would NOT

be part of the EU's single

0:01:220:01:26

market or customs union and said

both sides would have

0:01:260:01:30

to accept hard facts

and that no one would get

0:01:300:01:34

everything they wanted.

0:01:340:01:36

Mrs May also warned that the UK

would have to pay money into SOME EU

0:01:360:01:40

agencies to maintain access to them.

0:01:400:01:43

Our Political Editor Laura

Kuenssberg was watching the speech.

0:01:430:01:47

Roll up, roll up.

0:01:470:01:49

A hot ticket for a certain

kind of audience.

0:01:490:01:54

Ministers and diplomats

are rising for a speech.

0:01:540:01:57

Can you unite the party?

0:01:570:01:59

That would affect us all.

0:01:590:02:01

And it matters to her survival, too.

0:02:010:02:07

With controversy never far away.

0:02:070:02:11

The first message, no more

promises after Brexit,

0:02:110:02:13

we can have it all, to trade

just as we do now or be

0:02:130:02:17

completely free from the European

courts.

0:02:170:02:21

I want to be straight with people,

because the reality is that

0:02:210:02:24

we all need to face up

to some hard facts.

0:02:240:02:29

We are leaving the single market.

0:02:290:02:30

But it's going to be different.

0:02:300:02:34

Access to each other's markets

will be less than it is now,

0:02:340:02:37

so we need to strike a new balance,

but we will not accept the rights of

0:02:370:02:41

Canada and the

obligations of Norway.

0:02:410:02:47

Even after we have

left the jurisdiction

0:02:470:02:49

of the European Court of Justice,

EU law and the decisions

0:02:490:02:53

of the ECJ will

continue to affect us.

0:02:530:02:56

Out of the single market

and the customs union,

0:02:560:02:59

she confirmed, yet no new answer

to one of the hardest parts.

0:02:590:03:03

We have been clear all along

that we don't want to go back to a

0:03:030:03:07

hard border in Ireland.

0:03:070:03:09

We've ruled out any physical

infrastructure of a

0:03:090:03:11

border or any related

checks and controls.

0:03:110:03:15

But it's not good enough to say

we won't introduce a hard

0:03:150:03:18

border if the EU forces Ireland

to do it, that is down to them.

0:03:180:03:22

We chose to leave and we have

a responsibility to find a solution.

0:03:220:03:27

We cannot do it alone.

0:03:270:03:29

It is for all of us

to work together.

0:03:290:03:32

More details on how

she wants much of the

0:03:320:03:35

economy to stay closer to the EU,

but the Prime Minister

0:03:350:03:38

wants the right to pick

and choose when and how.

0:03:380:03:42

The commission has suggested

that the only option available to

0:03:420:03:46

the UK is an off-the-shelf model.

0:03:460:03:49

We both need to face

the fact that this

0:03:490:03:51

is a negotiation and neither of us

can have exactly what we want.

0:03:510:03:56

Fact is, every free

trade agreement has

0:03:560:04:00

varying market access depending

on the respective interest of the

0:04:000:04:04

countries involved.

0:04:040:04:06

If this is cherry picking,

then every trade

0:04:060:04:08

arrangement is cherry picking.

0:04:080:04:12

Last, in answer to

claims her plans are

0:04:120:04:14

too vague and unreal.

0:04:140:04:17

My message to our friends

in Europe is clear.

0:04:170:04:21

We know what we want.

0:04:210:04:23

We understand your principles.

0:04:230:04:25

We have a shared interest

in getting this right.

0:04:250:04:28

So let's get on with it.

0:04:280:04:32

Thank you.

0:04:320:04:33

APPLAUSE.

0:04:330:04:37

Do you accept now that we cannot

have it all as we leave?

0:04:370:04:41

Secondly, you have

outlined today you want to

0:04:410:04:44

pick and mix even though

the EU is repeatedly

0:04:440:04:47

rejecting that approach.

0:04:470:04:48

What is it do you think you can say

to your EU leaders that will

0:04:480:04:52

actually change their minds?

0:04:520:04:54

I'm confident as we

sit down together we

0:04:540:04:58

will be able to show

that mutual interest,

0:04:580:05:00

that mutual benefit, from

the proposals I have put forward.

0:05:000:05:04

After weeks of internal Tory

wrangling the Prime Minister has

0:05:040:05:07

made gathered Tory

grandees contempt.

0:05:070:05:11

This is about finding a way

through that will work

0:05:110:05:14

for everybody.

0:05:140:05:16

Why have you spent so long saying

we could have everything?

0:05:160:05:18

You said we could have

the same benefits?

0:05:180:05:21

I said that is the aspiration.

0:05:210:05:23

What were aiming at here,

and what the PM said clearly,

0:05:230:05:27

is that we want to have

a tariff free arrangement.

0:05:270:05:30

We want to have mutual recognition.

0:05:300:05:33

All those things, not

just in our interest,

0:05:330:05:34

they are in Europe's interest

and that is why we will get them.

0:05:340:05:38

What happens the

European Union says no?

0:05:380:05:40

I think the invitation that was made

to the speech of the PM was to apply

0:05:400:05:45

a cool hand to some very important,

mutual problems, but

0:05:450:05:52

also opportunities.

0:05:520:05:53

An outbreak of Tory unity?

0:05:530:05:56

The Foreign Secretary was grounded

by snow but gave a thumbs

0:05:560:05:59

up and Brexiteers and Remainers

followed suit, for now.

0:05:590:06:04

Others, like the Bank

of England governor, less

0:06:040:06:09

keen to give their verdict.

0:06:090:06:11

The opposition, unimpressed.

0:06:110:06:14

There is yet more

confusion on the road to

0:06:140:06:17

complications.

0:06:170:06:18

What we need is a set of objections

which means we can --

0:06:180:06:21

objectives which means we can

protect jobs in this country.

0:06:210:06:26

They want more detail and realism.

0:06:260:06:29

That could make

a difference to the next

0:06:290:06:31

steps of this lengthy tangle.

0:06:310:06:33

But there are plenty

of audiences making

0:06:330:06:36

demands of Theresa May,

who will still demand yet more.

0:06:360:06:44

The reaction here in Brussels has

been wary. Michel Barnier took the

0:06:540:06:59

Twitter to thank the Prime Minister

for her clarity and vivid

0:06:590:07:02

confirmation that the UK would be

leaving the single market and the

0:07:020:07:06

customs union meant it was heading

for a free trade agreement with the

0:07:060:07:10

EU. Privately EU diplomats have

praised the Prime Minister is more

0:07:100:07:14

realistic tone, admitting that both

sides cannot have exactly what they

0:07:140:07:17

want but they said they could not

find anything new in the speech and

0:07:170:07:20

limited the absence of a workable

solution to the Irish problem. A

0:07:200:07:28

leader here in the European

Parliament said the UK Parliament

0:07:280:07:30

was still burying its head in the

sand so the night we have working

0:07:300:07:34

groups from all the 27 EU member

states who are poring over the

0:07:340:07:39

detail of the election speech. One

diplomat said to me that he hoped he

0:07:390:07:44

would find coded messages to the EU

in Mac Theresa May's speech. He said

0:07:440:07:54

something similar happened in her

last Brexit speech in autumn.

0:07:540:08:05

Italians go to the polls

this Sunday in a general election.

0:08:100:08:14

Italy has been run by a caretaker

cabinet since December 2016,

0:08:140:08:18

Numerous parties are running -

but there are three main groupings.

0:08:180:08:20

On the centre-right

Forza Italia is headed

0:08:200:08:22

by a familiar face -

former Prime Minister

0:08:220:08:24

Silvio Berlusconi.

0:08:240:08:25

He can't become PM until 2019

because of a tax fraud conviction.

0:08:250:08:28

But, depending on results,

he could very much be

0:08:280:08:31

a kingmaker if it came down

to forming a coalition.

0:08:310:08:35

But his eurosceptic coalition

ally, League leader Matteo Salvini

0:08:350:08:39

has ambitions for the role.

0:08:390:08:41

The 5 Star Movement is led

by 31-year old Luigi Di Maio.

0:08:410:08:45

It is one of Europe's

biggest populist movements.

0:08:450:08:48

And then on the centre-left,

there's the governing

0:08:480:08:51

Democratic Party led by the former

Prime Minister I mentioned,

0:08:510:08:54

Matteo Rentzi.

0:08:540:08:57

We are now joined

by our correspondent

0:08:570:08:59

James Reynolds live in Rome.

0:08:590:09:02

It is a very difficult call, isn't

it? Especially given the way the

0:09:040:09:10

opinion polls work in Italy.

When is it not a difficult call in

0:09:100:09:15

Italy? Almost never. It has made all

the more difficult by the fact that

0:09:150:09:21

Italian law says that the two weeks

before the election you cannot have

0:09:210:09:25

opinion polls so we are going to

talk about opinion polls but they

0:09:250:09:28

may be out of date. Those last polls

taken two weeks ago suggested that

0:09:280:09:34

centre right coalition organised by

Silvio Berlusconi may be the ones

0:09:340:09:37

closest to the finishing line but

they may fall short of that line.

0:09:370:09:40

Those polls also suggested that the

5-star movement may be the biggest

0:09:400:09:46

single political movement after the

election but they have struggled to

0:09:460:09:49

form alliances. Essentially there

are two things going on in Italy.

0:09:490:09:55

Italians themselves but on Sunday

and then the Italian politicians who

0:09:550:09:59

have been elected will discuss

amongst themselves who should take

0:09:590:10:03

power.

Let's face it, when those

discussions take place, there is no

0:10:030:10:07

one better with more experience than

sylvian Berlusconi.

It was

0:10:070:10:14

fascinating to watch him at one of

his final event in wrong here on

0:10:140:10:18

organising and convening his

coalition partners as if he had been

0:10:180:10:21

doing this for years, as if he were

the ones pulling the strings. He

0:10:210:10:24

cannot be King. The law says anyone

with a major connection cannot take

0:10:240:10:29

part in public office but he can be

the king maker. That will depend on

0:10:290:10:35

the numbers that come out of Sunday.

If that centre-right coalition does

0:10:350:10:39

well, it may be that he looks to try

and build a government without

0:10:390:10:41

coalition. It may be that his party

tries to break away to form a grand

0:10:410:10:47

coalition with the centre-left or

maybe 5-star get close. There are so

0:10:470:10:52

many maybes because this is how

politics and Italy usually works.

In

0:10:520:10:55

terms of the issues that the

campaigning is going on, we are

0:10:550:11:00

looking at live pictures now of some

of the campaigning. This is the

0:11:000:11:04

5-star movement. What is the main

theme going through? Immigration

0:11:040:11:09

must be one of those themes?

You

picked one, I will pick the other,

0:11:090:11:14

unemployment. Migration, that has

become one of the key issues of this

0:11:140:11:21

campaign. Recently, more than

600,000 migrants have landed on this

0:11:210:11:25

country's shores from the

Mediterranean. Not all of them have

0:11:250:11:28

stayed but the fact that they have

landed has changed the way in which

0:11:280:11:31

this country's debate happens. The

centre-right says anyone who has

0:11:310:11:35

come here illegally should be

deported. It appears they want

0:11:350:11:38

strength from that. Unemployment,

youth unemployment in Italy

0:11:380:11:44

routinely is 30 to 40%. There is a

vast pool of people who feel that

0:11:440:11:50

Italy is not listening to them,

those younger people. It may be that

0:11:500:11:54

the 5-star movement which calls

itself an antiestablishment movement

0:11:540:11:58

is their natural home.

We're looking

at the 5-star movement, the last

0:11:580:12:04

moments of campaigning going ahead.

I suspect you're going to have a

0:12:040:12:07

long night on Sunday.

0:12:070:12:15

Turkish authorities have confirmed

31 soldiers have been killed. It has

0:12:150:12:22

been one of the bloodiest days in

this offensive which is targeting

0:12:220:12:24

tradition fighters. Jackie considers

the US militia a terrorist group.

0:12:240:12:34

The BBC has managed to film, British

side of the conflict.

0:12:340:12:43

Night time in north-eastern Syria.

Turkish jets are pounding the target

0:12:430:12:52

at a checkpoint. The world of

survivors emerge out of the dark and

0:12:520:13:00

I picked up by and announces. They

have been part of a large convoy of

0:13:000:13:06

vehicles bringing food and fuel for

the people of the city. There were

0:13:060:13:12

casualties including teenagers but

most people had managed to run the

0:13:120:13:18

safety just in time.

We came here as

a peaceful solidarity convoy, we had

0:13:180:13:28

no weapons, nothing, but the forces

of Turkish President rained shells

0:13:280:13:31

on us. We don't want them here or

anywhere in Syria.

This, the

0:13:310:13:37

remnants of the convoy. Since Turkey

began its offensive against Kurdish

0:13:370:13:43

fighters in the area in January,

human rights groups say more than 90

0:13:430:13:47

civilians have been killed and

hundreds injured in feeding

0:13:470:13:49

children. They describe it as

indiscriminate attacks. The Kurdish

0:13:490:13:57

areas marked in yellow line along

much of the border with Turkey. The

0:13:570:14:02

pocket in the far north-west of

Turkey is the current focus of the

0:14:020:14:07

Turkish offensive but there may also

be a move on the key city of mandate

0:14:070:14:12

to ensure fighters are driven well

away from the Turkish border. The

0:14:120:14:16

Turkish government says it is

targeting a Kurdish group known as

0:14:160:14:22

the white PG because it poses a

strategic threat as it is linked to

0:14:220:14:27

insurgents, also Kurdish, who are

based inside Turkey. But already,

0:14:270:14:32

the fighting has forced families to

leave their homes and find shelter

0:14:320:14:36

anywhere where it is safer. It is

estimated 50,000 people have been

0:14:360:14:43

displaced after their towns and

villages came under attack. It could

0:14:430:14:48

be a long time before they can

return home. There is no end date

0:14:480:14:52

for the Turkish offensive which aims

to completely uproot the fighters

0:14:520:14:57

from the border region.

0:14:570:14:59

Let's take a look

at some of the other

0:15:040:15:07

stories making the news.

0:15:070:15:07

The United Nations says 24

hospitals and clinics

0:15:070:15:09

are now known to have been hit

in the Syrian military's bombardment

0:15:090:15:12

of a rebel-held enclave

on the edge of Damascus.

0:15:120:15:15

The UN said that despite appeals

for restraint, a high number

0:15:150:15:18

of civilians were being killed

and injured every day

0:15:180:15:21

in the Eastern Ghouta region.

0:15:210:15:25

Protests have been taking place

across Slovakia over

0:15:250:15:27

the killing of an investigative

journalist and his fiancee.

0:15:270:15:30

Jan Kuciac's work alleged

links between the Italian

0:15:300:15:34

mafia and figures close

to the prime minister.

0:15:340:15:36

Tens of thousands of people

took to the streets

0:15:360:15:39

of the capital Bratislava alone.

0:15:390:15:42

Crypto-currencies such

as Bitcoin should be regulated

0:15:420:15:45

to crack down on illegal activities

and protect the financial system,

0:15:450:15:48

according to the governor

of the Bank of England.

0:15:480:15:51

Mark Carney said that virtual

currencies don't yet pose a risk,

0:15:510:15:54

but should still be held to the same

standards as the rest of the system.

0:15:540:16:00

Britain's Prince Harry

and Meghan Markle will invite more

0:16:000:16:04

than 2,500 members of

the public to the grounds

0:16:040:16:08

of Windsor Castle for their wedding.

0:16:080:16:10

They'll be able to watch

the couple arrive and depart.

0:16:100:16:13

Charity workers and school

children will be among

0:16:130:16:15

those invited to attend.

0:16:150:16:21

There's no immediate end

in sight to the deep freeze

0:16:210:16:24

sweeping across Europe.

0:16:240:16:26

Heavy snowfall and deadly blizzards

will continue well into the weekend.

0:16:260:16:30

In parts of Eastern Croatia,

temperatures have plummeted

0:16:300:16:33

to -23 degrees.

0:16:330:16:35

The coastal Adriatic towns of Pula

and Split are covered in snow.

0:16:350:16:40

Though Thursday marked the first day

of the meteorological spring,

0:16:400:16:43

this morning was actually

the coldest this winter.

0:16:430:16:47

Italy, too, remains stuck

in sub-zero temperatures,

0:16:470:16:50

with snow blanketing the cities

of Bologna, Venice and Florence.

0:16:500:16:54

The ice has left a number of major

roads blocked and caused disruption

0:16:540:16:58

to train and air travel.

0:16:580:17:00

Forecasters have warned that

conditions there aren't likely

0:17:000:17:03

to improve immediately.

0:17:030:17:09

TRANSLATION:

There is still snow,

and we risk ice on the sidewalks.

0:17:090:17:13

We are on full alert

0:17:130:17:14

for the formation

of ice on the roads overnight.

0:17:140:17:17

So we will have all 34

of our salt spreaders at work.

0:17:170:17:20

We have spread 260 tonnes

of salt,

0:17:200:17:23

and we have another

600 tonnes available.

0:17:230:17:26

So we are prepared to face

even more snowfalls,

0:17:260:17:28

although we would rather

do without them.

0:17:280:17:32

In the UK, Storm Emma has

collided with the Siberian cold

0:17:320:17:35

snap, resulting in disruption

across much of the country.

0:17:350:17:39

Wales is one of the

worst affected areas.

0:17:390:17:42

The BBC's Sian Lloyd

is in the Vale of Glamorgan:

0:17:420:17:48

We can see that area, one of two

areas where have a meter of snow was

0:17:520:17:56

measured?

Absolutely. Last night

that half a metre of snow measured.

0:17:560:18:04

It was the highest on record

anywhere in the UK yesterday evening

0:18:040:18:08

and as you can see, it has led to

huge problems here in the Vale of

0:18:080:18:13

Glamorgan with snowdrifts. This is

actually a car behind me and three

0:18:130:18:18

people were rescued from the vehicle

that was stranded in a similar

0:18:180:18:22

fashion. They were stuck inside in a

dress like this one close to where I

0:18:220:18:26

am now the 12 hours. They put out an

SOS and local people were eventually

0:18:260:18:32

able to help. This road is normally

one that is used very often to get

0:18:320:18:37

to the airport here on the outskirts

of Cardiff. It is impossible as you

0:18:370:18:43

can see here this evening. We

managed to do out one car with a

0:18:430:18:49

four I4 but there is an operation

going on further down the lane now

0:18:490:18:52

for a vehicle that has been stuck

for a long time. Right across Wales,

0:18:520:18:58

the roads have been treacherous and

have been many road closures. The

0:18:580:19:02

warning again here is for people to

stay inside, stay in the warmth

0:19:020:19:06

unless they actually have to travel,

if it is essential because we have

0:19:060:19:12

seen many of the major routes here

also closed in Wales today and

0:19:120:19:17

virtually all the schools in Wales

has been closed for a second day.

0:19:170:19:22

There has been huge disruption on

public transportation as well. We

0:19:220:19:25

have seen many of the transport

operators in South Wales

0:19:250:19:29

particularly cancel all services.

This was an area that was covered by

0:19:290:19:32

the red warning into the early hours

which is a warning of extreme

0:19:320:19:38

weather and risk to life. But did

subside but we have a warning

0:19:380:19:42

tonight for ice and it is bitterly

cold here.

Just briefly if you

0:19:420:19:49

would, we are continuing with these

warnings, the build-up is terrible,

0:19:490:19:52

when is the end inside?

That is the

big question. People are still

0:19:520:19:59

bracing themselves for more bad

weather here certainly this evening.

0:19:590:20:06

Living in around the south of the

country. We know there is more sleet

0:20:060:20:10

and snow forecast here for this

evening. There has been some are

0:20:100:20:15

forecast that it could get a little

better over the weekend but we

0:20:150:20:20

really cannot say at this stage

because people are much dark in

0:20:200:20:23

here.

0:20:230:20:27

In the US, more than

2,000 people have been

0:20:350:20:37

paying their last respects

to the world-famous evangelist

0:20:370:20:39

Billy Graham, who died last

week at the age of 99.

0:20:390:20:42

President Donald Trump

and his deputy Mike Pence attended

0:20:420:20:44

the funeral in Charlotte,

North Carolina.

0:20:440:20:45

He was eulogised by his son

Franklin and is being buried

0:20:450:20:48

beside his wife, Ruth.

0:20:480:20:49

Billy Graham was one

of the world's most influential

0:20:490:20:51

preachers, and is credited

with delivering his sermons

0:20:510:20:54

to more individuals

than anyone else in history.

0:20:540:20:58

He was also a spiritual confidant

to a host of American presidents.

0:20:580:21:05

The house of American civil

right activist Rosa Parks, has just

0:21:160:21:18

returned to the US this week.

0:21:180:21:20

Since 2016 it has been on a journey,

via Berlin Germany.

0:21:200:21:25

The house travelled more than 8,000

miles back and forth

0:21:250:21:28

across the Atlantic.

0:21:280:21:30

This container has

precious cargo on board.

0:21:300:21:32

I just found out what I was hauling

in this container here.

0:21:320:21:36

Rosa Parks' house, very

emotional moment for me.

0:21:360:21:40

Beautiful day to be

an American, I guess.

0:21:400:21:43

But this isn't where

the story begins.

0:21:430:21:46

It's 2016, and Rosa Parks'

house is in ruins.

0:21:460:21:51

But a rescue is under way.

0:21:510:21:54

An artist has promised

to preserve it

0:21:540:21:56

whilst it's

found a permanent home.

0:21:560:22:00

A lot of people did think

that that house was

0:22:000:22:03

not worth saving, because there are

so many in the Detroit

0:22:030:22:06

that looks just like that house.

0:22:060:22:08

It's sort of goes without

saying that she is a

0:22:080:22:11

national icon, and what she did

was so important for

0:22:110:22:13

so many millions of people

even if they don't know it.

0:22:130:22:16

And so it was taken

into pieces, loaded into a

0:22:160:22:19

container, shipped

across the Atlantic,

0:22:190:22:22

to Ryan Mendoza's home in Germany.

0:22:220:22:27

This is it!

0:22:270:22:28

When in 1955, Rosa

Parks refused to give

0:22:280:22:31

up her seat on a bus

in Alabama to the white man,

0:22:310:22:34

she became a heroine

of the civil rights movement.

0:22:340:22:38

Yet she was persecuted for it.

0:22:380:22:41

Jobless and penniless,

0:22:410:22:42

she left the segregated South

and headed north to Detroit,

0:22:420:22:47

like so many

African-Americans before her.

0:22:470:22:51

Her family says the house

symbolises her struggle.

0:22:510:22:54

The house represents that, look,

you may not have $5,

0:22:540:23:00

but you can still be ethical,

you can still be honest,

0:23:000:23:04

you can still do things

for your fellow man.

0:23:040:23:10

In Berlin, Ryan Mendoza,

with a little help from

0:23:100:23:13

his son, rebuilt the house

in his front yard.

0:23:130:23:17

And finally, the house

got some attention.

0:23:170:23:20

Hundreds of people came to see it,

0:23:200:23:23

from schoolchildren

to Germany's Deputy Prime Minister.

0:23:230:23:26

I think that it's the perfect moment

for America to come to terms

0:23:260:23:32

with the fact that this house is,

in its utter simplicity,

0:23:320:23:36

enormously valuable.

0:23:360:23:38

Perhaps what this house represents

most of all is defiance.

0:23:380:23:42

Rickety and decrepit it may be,

yet here it is, still standing.

0:23:420:23:49

Zoe Conway, BBC News.

0:23:490:23:52

Gareth Williams from Pontypool

in South Wales phoned the emergency

0:24:020:24:04

services when his partner Rhiannon

began suffering from stomach pains,

0:24:040:24:07

and seemed to have,

in his own words, "something coming

0:24:070:24:10

out of her".

0:24:100:24:11

The recently engaged couple didn't

realise their family

0:24:110:24:13

was in for a big surprise.

0:24:130:24:15

How can with a? Congratulations to

them. Banks are watching.
