left, the sound of hun lt-‘uc—z "mar snf elufwr of the left, the sound of clanking tools, lights and torches, the glimpse of a fireman ‘s uniform. the cranking and heaving was helping and with a creek and banged the door was wrenched back. light poured in and we climbed out, cheers from the crowd that had gathered in the lobby. afterwards, the firemen crowded round, they wanted a picture with david hockney. it was amsterdam, after all! a very civilised city. glad they all got out 0k. let's get a look at the weather with helen has gone. it has, what a difference a day makes, have the code the weather is. we still had today to get through but we are certain that february will be the warmest on record. but as you say, or change, down to a change in wind direction. this dry heat coming from the south, today we have moist and warm
1:31 pm
weather, mild weather coming from the atlantic, often the british weather is about what direction the wind is, where the air is coming from and for the next few days it's coming from the atlantic. we see scenes like this, very different to those of yesterday as you can see. the fog is still with us, in some parts of yorkshire, especially the coast and cumbria. this is how the satellite looks, the rain on top as well, we actually have splashes of rain, quitea well, we actually have splashes of rain, quite a lot pushing its way gci’oss rain, quite a lot pushing its way across england and wales. largely dry for scotland and northern ireland, as the result of this cloud and rain, it is a lot cooler today. although that said, temperatures still above average where they should be at this time of year. going through this evening and overnight, the rain continuing to push south and east, clearing away, dry overnight, we are left with a lot of cloud, where there are breaks in the cloud mist and fog like this morning will be a big problem for the commute tomorrow. not going to be chilly tonight. it should be
1:32 pm
largely forestry. tomorrow, it looks drier and brighter, should be quite bright to start across northern ireland but as the day progresses we have to get rid of the mist and fog. not as much sunshine as we have been used to but a decent end to the week, later in northern ireland wind and rain coming in. again, the temperatures tomorrow between 10—13 above average for the ist of march. todayis above average for the ist of march. today is the end of the meteorological winter. but this is what is coming for the weekend, deep area of low pressure on saturday. we get the rain today, the rain through tomorrow night and the wind and rain on saturday, it could be we see some severe gale force winds across the hills of scotland, windy for all of us. hills of scotland, windy for all of us. although we look at 10—15 which is above average, it will be tempered by the rain and wind. hopefully clearing out of the way for most of us on sunday, but a big question remaining over this area of low pressure coming in for sunday in the south. at this stage it looks like it will be the southern half of england and wales bearing the brunt of that next area of wet weather.
1:33 pm
could be a very soggy weekend. further north, sunshine and showers but above all, remaining above average in terms of temperatures. what temperatures. what a change. wet and windy. potentially. helen, thank you. helen, a reminder of our main story this lunchtime... a summit between president trump and the north korean leader, kim jong—un, ends early without agreement. mr trump said he walked away after the north koreans demanded an end to sanctions. that's all from the bbc news at one. it's goodbye from me. good afternoon, it's 1.30pm and here's your latest sports news. the women's world cup is just three months away, england continued their preparations with a win over brazil in the first match of the invitational tournamnet the she believes cup in the united states. it was a superb strike
1:34 pm
from beth mead to seal the 2—1 win. they play the hosts usa in nashville on saturday, one of six matches they'll play between now and the start of the tournament in france. and phil neville expects to make it a clean sweep of wins. last year we got four points, the year before that we got three, we wa nt to year before that we got three, we want to finish this term and with nine points and we want to test ourselves against the best. the usa are playing against japan ourselves against the best. the usa are playing againstjapan and i will say to watch the game, and with a huddle at the end of the girls want saturday to come as soon as possible. i was just saturday to come as soon as possible. i wasjust happy to see the back of the night, when i hit it i knew it was going on but i was over the moon. was it a shot or a cross? i want to claim it was a shot but i put it in the area and thought, why not? england's next opponents the united states drew 2—all with japan. alex morgan looked to have scored the winner for the hosts in the 76th
1:35 pm
minute as the hosts. but in injury time yuka momiki was on target forjapan for the equaliser. four of the world's top ten teams are competing in this tournamnet. england's women claimed a tense two wicket win over india in the last match of their one day series. they won it with seven balls to spare having batted poorly at times, recovering from 49 for 5, heather knight and danielle wyatt leading the recovery, anya shrusole hit the winning runs as they chased down the 206 for victory. the series had already lost the win gives them some importnat points in their bid to qualify for the 2021 world cup. britain's two—time world championjames degale has retired from boxing in the wake of his defeat by chris eubankjr. he also won olympic gold in 2008 and is 10 years to the day that he made his professional debut — and said boxing had given him the best years of his life.
1:36 pm
he won 25 and lost three of his 29 professionalfights. and pre season testing continues in barcelona ahead of the start of the fi season which could be one of the closest in recent years according to former marussia driver max chilton. mclaren were fastest the last two days and will look to build on that heading into the final day tomorrow. it is the first time in years i have thought this is an open book for who can take the title. last year lewis was on the back foot and sebastian vettel had made a few mistakes in the team could have won the championship, lewis, the pro kept on his toes and ended up coming away with the victory. this year he will have a better car so they will have a better chance but looking at pre—season testing from yesterday teams like mclaren have been up there, which is a nice change, so i think it will be a mixed year. and you can follow
1:37 pm
the penultimate day of testing. you can find more on all those stories on the bbc sport website. that's bbc.co.uk/sport. that is all for now from the sports centre. i am that is all for now from the sports centre. iam back that is all for now from the sports centre. i am back with more in the next hour. the children's commissioner for england, anne longfield, is warning that mistakes that led to a number of child sexual grooming scandals are being repeated with gangs. a new report estimates there are 27,000 members of criminal gangs in england who are aged between ten and seventeen. this morning the victoria derbyshire programme brought together people with direct experience of criminal gangs inluding one former child gang member who explained his journey into criminality. after i was expelled the second time i was with a group of boys and we robbed a little year seven kit, we robbed a little year seven kit, we robbed him and i was caught up so much in the peer pressure that i borrowed a bb gun for i guess safety
1:38 pm
oi’ borrowed a bb gun for i guess safety or the imagery that i had built up, andi or the imagery that i had built up, and i was arrested with it outside my house. my mum and dad were saying, we love you to the best of oui’ saying, we love you to the best of our ability and we are upset, we can do anything with you, take you to ca re do anything with you, take you to care kind of thing. in that environment when i was really vulnerable and quite lonely, really dark times, someone give me an opportunity and you want to make some money? i ended up going up to cou nty some money? i ended up going up to county lines at 16 and being away from my family and feeling that this was freedom. and for those who want to learn more, what do you mean when you see i ended up going of —— over cou nty you see i ended up going of —— over county lines, what does that mean? cou nty county lines, what does that mean? county lines is essentially the drug dealers will send younger kids to go and sell whatever the product is, but also i feel like from a younger it isa but also i feel like from a younger it is a place where you feel like you can be free, there are no rules, there is very limited authority and
1:39 pm
in that environment that is where the young people need to be kind of contacted and helped to move away from that environment. which is where your report comes in. what you have heard are so typical of so many stories that we hear, people get that idea in their head that gang members are all the ones that set out, they are very aggressive, the oi'ies out, they are very aggressive, the ones that you see in the photos, but the stories are like yours, you're vulnerable and in a dark place and you want someone vulnerable and in a dark place and you want someone to feel that you belong to something. the level of threat and violence people told me about our chilling and that is used asa about our chilling and that is used as a way of getting kids to stay there and really stay part of that gang so getting kids out, keeping them out and getting them out has to be the priority. which is why you say the approach should be as the authorities now approach grooming victims, we saw what happened in rotherham and rochdale, they got it wrong then, we have learnt so much now. absolutely, so the starting point is that our kids that need
1:40 pm
protecting. kids at risk of harm who need protecting. 0n the scale of the issue needs to be accepted just as it needed to be accepted before, but also the signs, he went to pr you and got involved in these things, if someone and got involved in these things, if someone would have stepped in and helped at that point then you might not have got to the stage where it escalated. david lambie do you agree with that approach? absolutely. we tend to focus on the young people in gangs, young people with knives and guns, gangs, young people with knives and u gangs, young people with knives and guns, we focus less on the fact that many are often excluded from schools as was the case in the story. many are ina as was the case in the story. many are in a pupil referral unit but they are hardly bare, they are on they are hardly bare, they are on the streets. many are in the care system. these are vulnerable young people and there are adults, grown men, sometimes in suits, exploiting them. because in the end the knife crime and gun crime is really about the sale of drugs. britain has a
1:41 pm
cocaine problem, it is the largest cocaine problem, it is the largest cocaine problem, it is the largest cocaine problem in europe, these young men hardly know where colombia is. they haven't organised the shipment of drugs, it is through the country, it is across the country, usually k think i might say to middle—class people across the country. we should be bearing down on those adults. were to the police coming? you see it as a national crisis, what you mean specifically? i have been monitoring knife and gun crime and have realised that education is the key. we have to educate young people in schools, not exclude them as we have seen because they are more likely to become involved in crime if you are excluded, so you need to have a very clear understanding of a young person? reality. ithink clear understanding of a young person? reality. i think they are starting to get it now around adverse childhood experiences, trauma and toxic stress, but the
1:42 pm
groomers are increasingly —— increasing over the last 20 years and the safeguarding agencies have been run down, so you have a total imbalance. that is where the crisis is. unless the report has already shown, the report is fragmented. you get the asset all at a ministerial level, because it is notjust a london thing it is all across the country. gavin what about your experience, you ended up going down the route of crime and violence. what leroy sane is my experience, adverse childhood experience. i lived in refuges for years of my life and did not go to primary school until i was six or seven so for me the trauma i experience in the first six years of my life set the first six years of my life set the fundamental basis of how you become as a teenager, was fragmented by domestic violence and of men, my dad was a brown man so i was fearful
1:43 pm
so when the perpetrators were speaking, you transfer this in my psychology is that i am scared of these guys. i don't —— my dad perpetrated this on me and my mum and if fear was present and i reflect that on other men. i grew up ina reflect that on other men. i grew up in a household with just women, i am not saying it is just because it was women, but it had an impact on me as well because i lived in the east end of london in the 905. well because i lived in the east end of london in the 90s. when you are 12 or 13 who is coming to you and saying, sell this? do this? 12 or 13 who is coming to you and saying, sellthis? do this?|j 12 or 13 who is coming to you and saying, sell this? do this? i grew up saying, sell this? do this? i grew up in an environment where i saw a stabbing at ten years old outside my house, someone got any fight and was stabbed in the head with a fork and there was blood and an ambulance. that traumatised me. seeing that on my doorstep that was my experience of living in london. that violence was here, the war was here. that was my fear. i was fearful. i was not a gangster on a bad kids that wanted to sta b
1:44 pm
gangster on a bad kids that wanted to stab people, i was afraid of being stabbed. i was afraid of the violence i was witnessing around becoming my reality. that is where the gap was. people who did not live in my environment and witnessed the toxic stress can be paranoid. people pulling knives family at 13, you can go to the cinema north london because you're from east london and you're scared in case you get stabbed or robbed at knife—point. those bits and pieces that went on life and my reality, then produced in me toxic stress that made me want to carry a knife for protection, not to carry a knife for protection, not to bea to carry a knife for protection, not to be a gangster. if you take gavin's example from the approach that you would like us to take, at what point would authorities, children services, intervene in gavin's teenage years? from the start, you are already in a refuge so start, you are already in a refuge so things were not going well, but if you think later in teenage years, going to secondary school is a big stress for any kit but with all these things going on it is an
1:45 pm
additional one. missing school is another one. there are all these pointers where you know things get worse. missing school for periods of time, turning up at a&e with microsoft wins. what do you think should happen at that point? there must already be in place a group of people together locally who are all working on this, schools or hospitals of the police, they have decided they will not just talk about it more, they must proactively plan... to do what? take them back into school? good relationships with adults who can help and coach, who can really be that bridge back into school and keep them in school. lots of youth provision in things like that around, but relationships are key. yellow they must continue conversations because a lot of these young people are holding a lot of pain inside and it takes something “ someone pain inside and it takes something —— someone relatable. pain inside and it takes something -- someone relatable. it sounds like
1:46 pm
most personal social workers. -- someone relatable. it sounds like most personal social workerslj most personal social workers.” would say thou to be a good thing. the point as it is important to focus on what does happen and what does happen is that these people get a criminal record, what does happen as they spent time in youth offenders institutions. but remember that in the last few months we found out that 51% of young people in british youth offending prisons are from a black or ethnic or asian minority, 51%, it has gotten that bad. young people are criminalised and then can't get employment, and i am afraid the state picks up the tab in terms of unemployment benefit, often well into your 30s. so you have got to intervene early. you have got to intervene early. you have got to get alongside these people and you have got to challenge the adults that exploit them. victoria derbyshire they're discussing the problem of children in gangs in england. in a moment we'll have all the business news, but first the headlines on bbc news.
1:47 pm
a summit between president trump and the north korean leader, kim jong—un, ends without agreement. pakistan says it will release the indian pilot it captured, as a gesture of peace. a warning gangs are using sophisticated techniques to groom children, with chilling violence to stop them leaving. i'm jamie robertson in the business news. engineering giant rolls—royce swung into a loss of £2.9 billion in 2018, compared to a profit of nearly £4 billion the year before. profits last year at british airways owner international airlines group are up almost 10%. iag said it made a pre—tax profit of 3 billion euro for the year. shares in aston martin are down 9% after it said last year's pre—tax profits had fallen 7%. chief executive andy palmer had also said a delay to brexit would be "a further annoyance".
1:48 pm
we all know banks are being hit by increasing numbers of it shutdowns, tsb, visa, barclays, cashplus and rbs are some of the highest profile ones. but now we have learned that the number of incidents last year runs into dozens with some big banks reporting 30 or a0 breakdowns or hacks in the last nine months. uk banks have begun publishing the number of operational and security incidents under a voluntary scheme overseen by the financial regulator. let's talk to kevin peachey, the bbc‘s personal finance reporter. let's just try and define what these incidents are. what do the range to and from? this is operation or security incidents and they are ones that stop people, customers, being
1:49 pm
able to make payments. the frustrating times when your online banking goes down or your mobile banking goes down or your mobile banking app. and you can't make a payment. it is the first time that banks have told us the frequency of these cases and their are —— there is quite a range, for example the top one is barclays, with 41 cases in the nine months to the end of last year. many of those are minor glitches, they say, but it has been transparent about all of them. many of the major banks have at least one a month and clearly that is a frustration for many customers. this is easily accessible for all of us? we can go online and find the site? you have to dig deep to find it but we have looked through it and looked at the figures on top them up. there is quite a range and i think customers will understand that some of these cases will always happen, some of these shutdowns will happen. the question is how quickly banks will sort them out. and also whether
1:50 pm
we are willing to accept them. we have all these extra options for making payments through our mobile phones, through online banking, but are we willing to accept the updates, the shutdowns that go with them? or is that an added frustration? can we stand back and ask how big a problem is this? it ranges from massive problems to really quite small glitches so how on this case are the banks? what we have learned is the frequency of these cases, of the shutdowns, but it is the scale of them that is the important thing. you might find that ba rclays had a important thing. you might find that barclays had a number of different, may be small glitches in shutdowns whereas one major one a tsb caused problems for months. and when you look at the satisfaction figures among bank customers, he finds that ba rclays rates quite among bank customers, he finds that barclays rates quite highly for its
1:51 pm
online banking whereas tsb rated very low. i think customers except this might happen sometimes. what they want to see it is for them to be sorted out very quickly, for them to be able to make their payments. clearly if they are frustrated they can switch to another bank but of course when we look at those figures we see that people don't switch banks very often. this is to encourage competition but in the end we move between banks and accounts very rarely. thank you. now a look at some other business stories. premier league champions manchester city have signed a long—term kit deal with germany's puma, replacing their current agreement with nike. the size of the deal was not disclosed, but media reports suggest it could be worth up to £65 million a yearfor10 years. the number of cars made in the uk fell injanuary for the eighth month in a row, with much of the decline driven by plunging demand in china and the eu. the society of motor manufacturers and traders said production overall fell by around 18%, but output for destined for export was down byjust over 21%.
1:52 pm
house price growth remained "sluggish" in february, according to the nationwide building society's latest survey of the property market. the lender said prices were up by 0.4% compared with a year earlier, which was a faster pace thanjanuary‘s rate of 0.1%. and a look at the markets. the ftse is down, donald trump and kim jong—un failing to reach an agreement at the end of the meeting. also we had data on factory output in china, that was bad, so you saw a lot of the big miners doing very badly. there is the rolls—royce down, that is because it has lost or
1:53 pm
fallen out of a contract race for boeing. and then we have international consolidations which is short for the company that owns british airways. only down half a point. that is business, back in an hour. net migration to the uk from countries outside the eu has hit its highest level for 15 years. latest figures from the office for national statistics also show that net migration from eu countries has continued to fall. let's take a look in a bit more detail. the latest figures show 261,000 more non—eu citizens came to the uk than left, the highest that number has been since 200a. in contrast, net migration from eu countries is now at its lowest level since 2009 withjust 57,000 more people coming from the eu.
1:54 pm
overall, 627,000 people moved to the uk and 345,000 people left the uk — that means there was a net migration of 283,000. the immigration minister caroline nokes has given her reaction to the latest figures. we absolutely want to make sure that we are attracting the brightest and the best people to come to the united kingdom. it's right that we aim to have migration at sustainable levels, but it is important to remember that many of the numbers that we have seen today have been students coming to study in our world—class universities and people coming here for skilled jobs within the tier two system. and we welcome those doctors and nurses, for example, who have come as part of these numbers. non—eu migration is up, eu migration is down. what is the point of leaving the eu and getting control of migration when the bit that you already have control over, you are not doing a lot to bring down anyway? well, we are working hard to make sure that we attract the right skills to the uk. last summer we were pressed very hard on increasing numbers of
1:55 pm
doctors and nurses who were able to come through the tier two system, and that is exactly what we have seen this time. we have seen people coming here for more skilled work and students, all from outside the eu, which is where we have seen the big increases in numbers. but we welcome both people and we know that they are going to be contributing to our economy. cannabis has become a multi—million dollar industry in canada, following the country's decision to legalise the sale of the drug for recreational use last year. marijuana—infused food and drink are currently prohibited but their ban could soon be lifted. so, as caroline rigby has been finding out, some within the industry have turned their attention to developing cannabis—cuisine. at first glance it may look like nothing out of the ordinary, but look a little closer. from sweets that get you stoned to marijuana meals, cannabis cuisine looks set to become big business in canada. an expert at this food industry event in toronto suggest developing edibles is a growing
1:56 pm
priority for chefs. by showcasing these recipes that are standardised recipes and we are working with our other cannabis partners, it is a really good starting point to start the education and the conversation of cannabis use at home. last year canada legalised the sale of cannabis for recreational use, becoming only the second country in the world to do so. the shift in policy was a watershed moment for the country and it has seen marijuana mature into a multi—million dollar industry. but critics are warning against cannabis—infused food and drink being incorporated into the bill. restrictions will apply to products such as these, which could appeal to children, but some worry banning them will push sales underground. i think it all comes down to the packaging and the way you actually sell your product. if it's properly positioned as an adult edible, not a kids' edible, then i think it is fine. so, while cannabis cooking may have once been more about function over flavour,
1:57 pm
it seems legalisation in canada could soon see dining experiences, for some athletes, reach other, new, highs. now it's time for a look at the weather with helen willetts. so they went a heat wave is over? absolutely as we go to the end of meteorological winter but even with the cloud today is not the beautiful sunshine we had yesterday, temperatures will still get above average and it is highly likely that favourable beat records and become the warmest on record, 2019. but as i see it is very different today, we have lost this dry heat that has been filtering up from africa across the western side of europe, instead we picked up some relatively mild weather for ourselves coming off the atlantic. because it is coming in off the moisture source it picks up a lot of cloud so actually outside
1:58 pm
todayis a lot of cloud so actually outside today is a very different complexion. this is how it looks in sussex, east sussex, earlier on, and we still have a fog lingering in the north—east of england, this in newcastle upon tyne. in the north west of england we have four, two, and why? we have this amount of cloud over the country, notjust cloud over the country, notjust cloud but rain falling across england and wales. sunshine coming through the northwest island area and in the northern isles for shetland where it was a nice day yesterday. we have cloud and rain. the cloud and limits temperatures today, above average of what should be. the showery rain continues across england and wales throughout this evening and overnight as well so as you can imagine it is quite damp, the air is moist so instead of turning fog —— frosty it will be foggy. fog will be what we will contend with for friday morning's rash. once we move the —— lose the mist and fog there will be a lot of cloud around in the sky. as we go
1:59 pm
into the in the cloud will thicken across northern ireland with the approach of this rain come tee time but for most of us a dry, bright, reasonable day, mild for the time of year, the 1st of march, 10—13d but not the dizzy heights we have become used to. that warm weather front brings the rain for most of us tomorrow night, the city of low pressure developing for saturday. with this not just pressure developing for saturday. with this notjust rain but strong wind. when the weather that we have had for some time. we are talking gales widely in western and northern areas, but severe gales across the hills of scotland, blowing in very wet weather. once it does arrive it looks set to hang around across southern areas into sunday, potentially developing into another area of low pressure. sunday could turn out to be quite soggy across southern and western areas, hopefully brighter for the north. goodbye.
