heard from iran, because iranian not going to enjoy a revival and authorities have been very clear previously, saying that it was not concentrate on something else?|j concentrate on something else?” don‘t think we have a choice, you the work of a missile, it had not are absolutely right. if you and i been shot down, but now the advice went up into manchester, it would be has changed. correct, so after days brilliant, or we went back to leeds of denial basically that opened the with me, it will be brilliant. even doorfor much of denial basically that opened the door for much rumour and of denial basically that opened the doorfor much rumour and conspiracy injanuary theories, on iranian social media with me, it will be brilliant. even in january there are with me, it will be brilliant. even injanuary there are some great high streets, blatant to be the bigger and the media sphere really cities across the country. whereas towns have become corridors for fractured the society and public retail, the retail has moved away. we have to reinvent what we used town centres for, and some of these opinions, some were going with the investments and schemes the government has set up, they are official line, others were going with rumours and conspiracies, finally this acknowledgement comes, complicated there are funds all over it is actually a conference of statement by the armed bombers —— the place, they really need clever thought, we need a lot of clever thinking about high streets. what forces, saying this was human error, would you suggest? you have to think saying it was a very sensitive time, about reasons to go into the high they were on high alert for air street in town. if there is no debenhams anymore but which has been defences, expecting retaliation for there for 35 years, you need to the attack on the iraqi base, and think about other things. leisure that this plane was moving toward a military target and was mistakenly activities, many people living back in high streets right now. if you live and work there... in high streets right now. if you live and work there. .. i wanted to shot down, which brings us to the ask you about that, city centre question now, i am not a military
6:12 am
expert, but every iranian civilian i talk to, the question is, why were living is now a thing, you can‘t commercialflights, talk to, the question is, why were move the tower blocks going up. town commercial flights, passenger flights flying over the capital on centres, it doesn‘t happen so much. if you have people living there, the night of such an important operation, on such high alert for they will shop there, be at the local supermarket or bars and cafe the air defence system? i'm sure ‘s stock is that the distinction? local supermarket or bars and cafe 's stock is that the distinction?“ you go and stand today in a town and some of those questions may form pa rt some of those questions may form part of that investigation, and you you go and stand today in a town and are right, to talk on statement that you look up, on top of boots or marks & spencer ‘s, there is tons of was issued by iranian armed forces, empty space. that is one solution, they say human error at a time of the other is about heritage, there crisis caused by us adventurism led are towns in the northwest that have to disaster, squarely putting the done really well, and create reasons blame at the door of the americans for people to go there. it needs and blaming americans for this heightened state of alert. well, i local people to think about it. think it is a two sided adventurism because we lose a lot if we lose a to be frank, this all goes back to town centre, because increasingly people are islands and it is a place the tension between iran and the us, where we interact and talk to other human beings. in one of the problems the tension between iran and the us, the current tension goes back to when president trump old out of the is, with the amount of change that nuclear deal, he promised a better is, with the amount of change that is happening, we haven‘t seen the deal, and to rein in iran‘s original immediate change, that will happen over time, and loneliness a big issue. being able to pop into town behaviour, another that has every day and do a bit of shopping
6:13 am
happened. now we get to a point that if you are an older person or maybe there is no better nuclear deal, is someone who lives on your own, it pulling out of the jcpoa, can someone who lives on your own, it ca n stave someone who lives on your own, it can stave off loneliness, helps with mental health and actually for there is no better nuclear deal, is pulling out of thejcpoa, and we have iranian missiles being shot towards us bases in us soldiers. the society it costs less in the tension is very high, and was long—term. there is scandal around hisjob is going and yet we don‘t important to realise is this have a plan to think about how we tragedy, this human tragedy is will help and support those people. it sounds like you need a bit of before an actual potential war has state support but it is a question started, so imagine what kind of of whether they will. .. tragedy is we will see if an actual war, military conflict would make state support but it is a question of whether they will... there is also a question of take stuff, we're between iran and the us, attacks going back and forth. i think this not buying so much and is about really brings us back to the experiences, and is about enjoying things more rather than buying question of whether this is the time stuff. being more careful about what you physically own. to ta ke question of whether this is the time family. stay with us, headlines to take a moment to de—escalate rather than heightening tensions on coming up. stuff. being more careful about what you physically own. good morning! if you physically own. good morning! if both sides. we have been looking at you are hitting the high street you would need a waterproof rather than pictures of the crash site itself, a warm jacket. while there across the country. with it, the picture where the airline went down, a lot of heavy equipment being used there, behind me suggests windy conditions as well. the air with us is coming very little protection to the crash site, investigators may have very all the way from the mid atlantic little opportunity to investigate what remains of the plane. there and the azores, these warm orange colours here just pushing we re what remains of the plane. there were any criticism that a full and the azores, these warm orange colours herejust pushing northwards and on the forward side of this

6:19 am
is the worst of modern times, killing more than 20 people, forcing will turn increasingly wet and windy thousands to flee their homes towards the west, and legacy winds and traumatising a whole nation. on monday get to around 60 or 70 or maybe 80 miles an hour in western the presence on location areas through the afternoon and into there of clive myrie, who continued to present and report the evening rush hour. milder from australia throughout the week, conditions on the way back but the raised objections of a nature wet and windy weather sweeps which will be familiar to any eastwards through monday night and regular newswatch viewers. here‘s brian chambers then ben, nina, pretty stormy conditions to come at times. proper and first, hugh robson. so i‘m baffled why suddenly, winter, isn‘t it? it doesn‘t feel i see clive myrie being parachuted in to report on this. like it but the wind well. thank you! we will be back with a summary it‘s a real slap in the face for the local reporters. of all of the headlines for you at a sort of "move over, serious talent coming in." half past six. but it‘s worse than that, now, it‘s time for the film review because what does it add with jane hill and mark kermode. and what cost financially to get clive and whatever team supports him across the world and back again is extraordinary when the bbc budgets are so tight. but in the story itself, it‘s about climate change and how hello and welcome to the conditions that are leading to this are seriously affected the film review on bbc news. by carbon in the atmosphere. to take us through this week‘s cinema releases is mark kermode.
6:20 am
and here we have reporters i can say happy new year. being jetted halfway around happy new year. the world and back again. we are in award season, so we have a great selection so it doesn‘t make sense. of movies. come on, bbc. all of the big contenders. let‘s have responsible we have uncut gems, a new film news—gathering. i feel that is a complete waste of time and money when there are already starring adam sandler. correspondents within those countries covering the same news items and doing exactly the same job we have 1917, a war movie directed by sam mendes, in an equally professional manner constructed in one shot. and seberg, the biopic as the news readers would be doing. starring kristin stewart. well, we put those a lot of variety! points to bbc news. they told us that clive myrie was sent to australia to support lots around, as you say. the team based there locally, let‘s begin with uncut gems. who‘d done many long days coverage of the bushfires before he arrived. a spokesman added: so, adam sandler is a kind of difficult to talk about as an actor because i have not liked a lot of his comedies. i love that you are already smiling! but he did do punch—drunk love with pt anderson and if you make
6:21 am
a film like that that, you know a good film. the most anxiety—fuelling drama i‘ve seen in a while. he stars as a new york diamond district bling jeweller and his life is unravelling in monday‘s news at six led with the highly distressing news of reynhard sinaga, spectacularfashion. who was sentenced to life imprisonment for no fewer he is in debt and he thinks he can than 136 offences of rape. claire border was watching get out of it by selling the uncut and recorded her response for us on camera. jam, the black opal he has smuggled into the us. time is running out in his business, on monday night, i watched the early his personal life and his marriage. evening news with great concern. here is a clip. there was a report about a serial rapist which, in my opinion, i'm begging you, just... went into unnecessary detail, just give me another shot. and i was very concerned that it was being shown at a time when my seven—year—old granddaughter you know what, howard? would be able to see it. say yes. what? i think you are the most annoying person i have ever met. i hate being with you, i hate i certainly felt that we didn‘t need looking at you and if i had my way, to see a photograph of the mattress i would never see you again. where the attacks took place, along with graphic detail. that's 'cause you're mad. you're mad and it makes sense. although children do need to be aware of what‘s going on in the world, you can punch me, if you want. i feel that that this was not appropriate for the early evening 0h, thanks. news and would have been better commotion. on the late news. hey, i was ready for it. there is a watershed
6:22 am
i don't even have a tattoo. in place for a reason. that is going well then. she says you are the most annoying person i have ever met and that is the centre of the film, mps returned to parliament this week after their christmas and new year yet you‘re completely riveted by this character as his life break, entering a political landscape completely changed by last month‘s general election results. unfurls in spectacular fashion. here‘s a reminder of how huw edwards began his marathon broadcasting stint on the night the thing that the safdie brothers do is make a film that has of december the 12th. a dramatic format, like the film our exit poll is suggesting that there will be a conservative bad lieutenant, which is set majority when all the votes are counted after this election a fixed period of time of december 2019. when everything goes wrong. you stay with adam sandler‘s character as he goes from bad decision to bad decision. the conservatives on 368 seats he is addicted, he is a liar, and labour way down on 191. he is a cheat and he believes now, on those figures, we are looking at a conservative that there is a way out majority of 86. of the situation but it is one step ahead of him. i thought he was terrific and it reminded me how much i sat there watching thinking, i can‘t believe this is the man who has made so many over the next few hours, bbc news reported the results comedies i do not like. as they came in on television and also online. the genius of this is is what it is but articles on the bbc news website, like these, as it taps into the fact that there were generated in a whole new way, through automated journalism. with me to explain is
6:23 am
is something about adam sandler that is something about adam sandler that is deeply unsettling. robert mckenzie, the editor of bbc there is something about him news labs, which leads that is kind of worrying innovation across bbc news. thank you for coming on newswatch. and anxiety—ridden, and this really captures that. how did you use automation i think the safdie brothers in the general election, then? are extraordinary. so what the viewers will have seen theirfilmmaking their filmmaking is experiential. is they will have seen stories that at the end of this film, you have to lie down. were compiled by a computer but written by a human being. it felt like a claustrophobic panic attack — i say that in a good way. so it all started months ago. in a good way! we sat down and we tried to work out chuckles. what possible combinations of stories might come out of every single constituency — it is absolutely not for everyone, so large majorities, it is not the kind of thing where smaller majorities, changing from one party to another, you say it is friday night, that‘s independents winning, independents losing — all the possible permutations go watch uncut gems and relax. we could think of. you will come out of this 0k. write all of those into a piece digging your nails into the palms of your hands. of software that allows it should be nominated. you to use... he should be up for all number crunch. of the awards, best actor. yes, exactly. it is a terrific cinematic experience and like having a panic so you have different sentences attack for two hours. or different phrases will appear, i am slightly stressed according to the results. listening to that. so what you do is you write it iam i am really sorry. in advance and then, 1917 — i‘m going to see as the results come in, the results then control that this weekend. yes. which stories get written. and i am for a treat? and then it‘s manually you are. and again, experiential cinema. checked by a human?
6:24 am
the story is very simple at exactly, yes. the beginning world war one picture. the two lance corporals are told everything manually checked — there‘s always a a human in the loop, as they say that what they have to do — in computer speak. so we can see how it take a message across enemy lines would make sense in elections, which is a lot about numbers and possible projections. to a distance troop what other types of stories have you been experimenting with, or are you thinking to say that there‘s an attack about using it for? that is going to happen, so about a year ago, you have to stop the attack. we did an experiment with our colleagues in the east that is the plot. of england, where we used the camera then follows them in what appears to be real—time, the a&e waiting times. so same thing — think because it appears to play at a single shot. about all the possible versions it gives you the impression that of the story and then use the a&e waiting times data to produce you‘re watching the action unfold. it is brilliantly constructed a report for every single hospital and choreographed. fa ntastically trust in the east of england. fantastically shot by roger deakins. it has at its heart a central so you could look and see performance by george mackay, what your hospital trust was doing who have talked about on this show before. compared to the targets, isaid he i said he is a real — which seemed to go down very well. and we did an experiment last summer, again with our i think he is a real talent colleagues across england, and he is perfectly cast where we were looking at levels of government—supported at the centre of this movie because his face has this mixture or council—supported tree planting. so, again, we generated a story of innocence but also world—weariness. for every local council about how we really get a sense through watching him many trees have been planted that he is somebody who has been in your area by your council. made old before his time. now, i noticed on the website as a theatrical experience, with the election stories, there are three moments, they had a label to say they‘d been at least, in which ijumped created through automation.
6:25 am
almost out of my chair. and yet, the real strength will you always label stories that way? of the film is it makes you care about the characters. yeah, we think it‘s really important what you see here is edited footage, that we‘re really clear but to remind you that those edits with our users about how are not in there — the camera the stories have been created. so they are written by humans, checked by humans, but the machine appears to be following them. has compiled them in the middle. could automation — and we discover the landscape one can‘t help asking — as they discover it. help avoid some of the human errors that have happened with, yes! it is very, very immersive, terrific soundtrack, like, wrong images — and i think you will find it — for example, when, you know, the wrong photograph is used enjoyable is not the right word, in obituaries of screen actors? i mean, i‘m thinking facial but i think you‘ll find recognition technology. it hugely powerful. absorbing and one to see. it‘s a possibility. i mean, again, you do tend to find seberg. huge fan of kristin stewart. that human beings make mistakes, computers make mistakes when human beings program them incorrectly, with her and robert pattinson, so they‘re not fail—safe either, i‘m afraid. remember when they start in the twilight movies and all of the and indeed, you know, just thinking of errors on archive critics were sniffing about that? look at what they turned out to be. footage more broadly, you know, there was a very specific issue here she plastean seberg, with archive footage a famous actress, who came back of borisjohnson used laying to hollywood and became investigated a wreath, and i wonder if computers by the fbi in a covert operation could check dates and things to discredit her because of her and avoid that in future? affiliation, support yes, and that‘s actually one for the black panthers of the projects that news labs and her affiliation is looking at, is how we can use face recognition, how we can use the metadata that with hakim jamal. comes with pictures — like, when it was filmed,
6:26 am
when it was retrieved in the clip we see here, the two of from the archives — to help journalists avoid those kind of mistakes when they‘re in a hurry. them are together reading a script she has been given. some people might also be wondering, it both refers to the script and what is happening at a time when there‘s a lot of talk in their personal life. about budget cuts, if the bbc might here is a clip. be using automation in news writing you don't know me, mr rumson. to get rid ofjournalists? but there's not a woman i would say that‘s on this earth who will make absolutely not the case. you a better wife. so if you even take the election you ought to. stories, the bbc has never, ever written a story about every i paid enough for you. single constituency. so we are at 650 stories in english, plus a0 in welsh i may be paid for, for the welsh constituencies. but i'm not your property. thatjust would not have been possible without human beings. you grab me unwanted like that again so, as far as i‘m concerned, and i'll shoot you down like a dog. what automation is here for is to add to the range of bbc journalism, not to substitute where did you get that? forjournalists doing journalism. a woman has her secrets. now put that down or neither of us obviously, yourjob is partly looking medium and long term. do you have a view of where, will have much of a wedding night. in five years, automation might be two great performances. in terms of its use in bbc news? well, nothing is certain another great performance in the film byjack o‘connell with technology, but certainly, who plays the fbi agent our hope is that we will be who is sent to basically spy on and discredit her, in a situation where we can provide and he starts to wrestle much more coverage to our audiences with his own conscience. about everything from local traffic
6:27 am
the film is interesting. the director has a background accidents, local crime figures, education outcomes, ofsted reports and so forth. in theatre and it occasionally seems a bit theatrical, a bit stagey, but it is a really interesting story you should be able to get a much about this horrible more personalized view of what‘s counter—surveillance operation, going on in your neighbourhood spying on somebody, as a result of data—driven trying to discredit them journalism like this. because of their political beliefs, robert mckenzie, thank you. thank you. and at the centre of it, thank you for all your is a very, very edgy and nervy, comments this week. electrifying performance if you want to share your opinions by kristin stewart, who captures that quality that makes... about what you see or hear on bbc firstly, why it was that this news, please do e—mail newswatch. person became a star, or you can find us on twitter. but also the vulnerability that the experience as they become paranoid about everyone‘s watching them, everyone‘s spying on them — you can call us. and the truth is, they are. and do have a look at our website. the film itself is slightly flawed but the performances are really good that‘s all from us. and the story itself we‘ll be back to hear your thoughts about bbc news coverage still bears retelling and, again next week. goodbye. once again, great to see kristin taking on a role that is challenging and difficult and different. it is as if her and robert pattinson have went out of their way to take on other projects.
6:28 am
projects that are admirable and artistically based and good for them. and best out, you have selected this week little women. it came out on boxing day and ijust love it. have you seen it yet? i did not love it as much as i thought. i thought it got better. i thought the first hour could do with some subbing and it was slow and dark and suddenly it burst into light. 0k. good morning, and welcome to breakfast with ben thompson and nina warhust. our headlines today... and dark and suddenly it burst into light. ok. i'm afraid. i love ronan. i thought she was terrific. and iran‘s military says it gritted gerwig which i thought to unintentionally shot down a ukrainian plane, fantastic job and it killling all 176 people on board, gritted gerwig which i thought to fantasticjob and it should have because of "human error". been nominated recently as best director for been nominated recently as best directorfor it, did you not get it? charting a new course. i believed in the house the duke and duchess of sussex in the world and the environment and the landscape are said to be hopeful that talks about their future can be concluded and the characters. the way in which she has reordered "sooner rather than later". back to business — the northern ireland assembly the time frame of the source will sit today for the first time so that we start further since the collapse of on and we come back. power—sharing three years ago. i don‘t know. 0h, oh, dear. ifeel like i am liverpool face tottenham letting the side down. in the game of the day i did not dislike it. in the premier league. i felt it was two and a quarter jose mourinho is hoping to halt jurgen klopp‘s charge
6:29 am
hours and it would have benefited towards the title in what‘s becoming from being two, for example. i could have had three or four, or any miniseries. i just loved it. a record—breaking season. i loved it. but there we go. diversity of opinion. thejoy of film. yes! 0k. i did not love it and i did not hate it. they‘re not putting that on the poster. no. dvd. it‘s saturday 11th january. dvd, what‘s out? dvd, what's out? yes. very briefly, the by the grace of god, about a real—life case we will have a full round—up of the of a group of men who got together weather later with matt. good to take action against a priest who had molested them in younger life. morning to you. what is interesting about it is because the subject our top story... matter is so factually based, the iranian foreign minister has blamed "human error" after admitting it is almost as if he has put aside shooting down a ukrainian passenger any style and itjust made the film jet on wednesday, killing all 176 people on board. the military said it had as straightforwardly and as simply unintentionally fired missiles at the plane after it was mistaken and as a matter of fact. for a hostile aircraft. iran‘s president, hassan rouhani, the story itself is very strong, said his country deeply powerful, controversial regretted the incident. and it is almost like our diplomatic correspondent, caroline hawley, joins us now from beirut. the film—makers said "i do not need to embellish this at all. good morning to you. this statement this is how it plays out." from the iranian authorities saying that the unintentionally shot down and i thought actually, it was a this plain, quite a turnaround from very smart move.
6:30 am
the matter—of—fact quality made it the previous statement, denying that all the more powerful. that could have happened.“ thank you very much. the previous statement, denying that that could have happened. it is a you have to see little women again! huge turnaround since this happened you have to see it again. i am very busy this weekend. on wednesday morning. iran has insisted that the west has been i will be watching sam and des‘s latest this weekend. see you and enjoy your cinema—going, lying about what happened, that it whatever you go and see. could not possibly have happened that it couldn‘t be a missile strike, it was psychological warfare. yesterday you had the iranians clearly wanting to be seen to be cooperate with the outside world over this, inviting and the hello, this is breakfast with ben thompson and nina warhurst. americans, the canadians, inviting representatives of other countries affected by this disaster, and i good morning, here‘s a summary of today‘s main think once you had invited people stories from bbc news. and, once you are going to cooperate iran has admitted to mistakenly shooting down a ukranian passenger jet, in some way in an investigation and which killed 176 people. there had been demands for a full for days iran has and transparent investigation, that denied responsibility, blaming a mechanical fault it had been very, very hard to hide for the crash, but now says what had happened. so, we have the the plane had flown close iranians coming out this morning to a sensitive military base saying it was a terrible mistake. the iranian foreign minister said it and the aircraft was was human error at a time of crisis shot down "in error". our ukraine correspondentjonah caused by us adventurism. so,
6:31 am
fisherjoins us now from kyiv. attributing some blame to the lots of speculation about the cause of this crash, relief then in americans at this time of heightened tensions. but iran owning up and ukraine now that has been confirmed? seeing it made a terrible mistake. caroline hawley, thank you for the there has been no official reaction moment. we will hear more from her from ukraine but i think the broader picture is that iran could no longer later who is live in beirut for us. simply sustain what has been its narrative since this plane went so, the iranian authorities admitting that the unintentionally down, that the cause of the crash shot down an aircraft that crashed was almost certainly technical error. they have not been able to in tehran. present any evidence to support that talks about the future relationship between the duke and duchess of sussex and the royal family 01’ present any evidence to support that or explain why this plane went down are "progressing well", in sucha or explain why this plane went down in such a catastrophic wayjust according to a source after ta keoff. close to the couple. in such a catastrophic wayjust officials and royal aides have held after takeoff. so we had the a series of meetings and phones statement overnight, both from the calls, as they draw up proposals president and the foreign minister for harry and meghan‘s saying that they now accept that it roles once they step down from front—line duties. was human error at a time of crisis the timetable for finding caused by us adventurism, led to workable solutions remains days rather than weeks. our reporter simonjones is outside this disaster. we need to remember the context of wednesday morning, buckingham palace this morning. that was the night when iran was good morning, simon. some of the firing the rockets into iraq, newspaper is reporting this morning that the queen has set a 72 hour targeting american military bases, so obviously there was a heightened deadline for them to carve out this
6:32 am
sense of awareness, and that appears new arrangement whatever it might to be why iranian forces near tehran be. well, we do not know the formal timetable but the impression we get shot down this plane by accident. is that the abbas wants this sorted quickly. we have heard talk recently about the divisions between meghan some answers than the grieving families. i am some answers than the grieving families. iam interested some answers than the grieving families. i am interested to know, and harry on one side and the rest though, how is this ongoing of the royal family on the other but we get the sense that they are diplomatic row being seen in coming together to find a way ukraine, which is very much in the middle of all this tension? ukraine forward. the last time that we saw the couple in public was on tuesday have been a horrible position for the past few days, i have had a team just down the road from here at the on the ground in iran trying to find canadian high commission, that was in front of the world‘s media but a nswe rs , on the ground in iran trying to find answers, while at the same time the later on they carried out a private visit where they took their own united states, canada and great britain have been saying pretty pictures and posted them on clearly that they believe it was a instagram. that was to a community missile shootdown, and ukraine was kitchen set up in the wake of the really having to choose whether to put its people on the ground in a g re nfell tower kitchen set up in the wake of the grenfell tower tragedy. in future, really difficult situation, or go we may see more visits like that, along with what western intelligence was saying. i think there is relief only much smaller scale, where harry here that we are not going to see a and meghan can control more who repeat of what happened to the mh17 attends and how it plays out. one airline which crashed in eastern ukraine five years ago, shot down by interesting thing i think we have seenin interesting thing i think we have seen in recent days is the lack of russian missile and almost certainly politicians commenting on what has shot down by russian forces. in that been going on. one politician has
6:33 am
decided to speak out, surprise, case russia has continued to deny surprise it is donald trump, and he has told american networks that he any involvement in shooting down feels sorry above all for the queen. that plane and there has been a very protracted legal process an investigation which has been thank you, simon. not like donald extremely painful for the families of the nearly 300 people on board. in this case, when there are now trump to have a word about the admitting that it is responsible, foreign story! thank you, simon. evenif admitting that it is responsible, even if it was just by mistake, i think there is a sense of relief the northern ireland assembly will sit later today, that we will not see a repeat of following a deal to restore the devolved government after power—sharing broke that we will not see a repeat of that horrible drawnout process. down three years ago. jonah fisher, many thanks. the assembly will elect a speaker, a first ministerfrom the dup, the duke and duchess of sussex hope and a deputy first minister from sinn fein. talks over their future roles keith doyle is outside in the royal family can be concluded stormont for us. keith what more can "sooner rather than later", a source has said. we expect to happen today? this is a really important moment. officials and royal we expect to hear more details about aides have held a series of meetings and phone calls how it will play out later today. as they draw up proposals for harry and meghan‘s roles once they step yes, indeed. good morning from a down from frontline duties. the timetable for finding workable solutions remains days very wet and blustery stormont, rather than weeks. where after three years, the northern ireland assembly will be up president trump told fox news and running this afternoon. that for he thought the situation was "sad" for the queen. those that make or break deal put

of an american intelligence sigh of relief that something along officer, as "highly inappropriate". the lines of normal politics will be back up and running today. watch she returned to the us claiming diplomatic immunity following the crash in august. the home office says this space. thank you for that, the matter is now "a decision for the us authorities". keith doyle. we expect more details later today and we will have full the northern ireland assembly will sit at stormont later today, coverage of that on bbc news following a deal to restore the devolved government, channel. after powersharing broke in the last half an hour, down three years ago. the spokesperson for the family the assembly will elect a speaker, of harry dunn has told us a first ministerfrom the dup, they are certain the american woman and a deputy first minister charged in connection with his death from sinn fein. will return to the uk to face justice. the us state department said the deal, tabled by the uk it was "highly inappropriate" and irish governments, for britain to apply offered resolutions on a range for the extradition of long standing disputes including of anne sacoolas, the wife the irish language act of an american intelligence officer, ms sacoolas, returned to the us claiming and increasing police numbers. diplomatic immunity following a road accident in august. the home office says that is all the news, john is here the matter is now "a decision for the us authorities". now with the sport. it is all about no doubt in my mind whatsoever, the premiership. it is crazy that we are thinking about 100% she is coming back. the only thing i can't tell you is when. liverpool could break, but that is now, if this administration chooses tojust ignore the extradition the reflection of the year they are request or reject it out of hand, i don't think there is anything any having.

imagine that in this room, probably, defending radicalism and making it accountable to peoples lives. what only to persons think that we can does that mean? we have to accept win. we are maybe only two. but we the election result was devastating for the labour party and we have to believe. you know? we believe, we identify the reasons that led to that and address them. but there are have to believe. i‘m sure there will be a few more three central tasks, firstly, we inside the stadium today. must unite our party. there has been too much division and it has been tottenham‘s pursuit said many times but it is true, is of champions league football. and they‘ll be competing divided parties do not win elections, so i would lead from the top on uniting our party, putting it with sheffield united for that, together, the strength and passion that exists. secondly, we must be an after being uprooted last season they‘re up to fifth beating effective opposition. borisjohnson has a majority which she will use. west ham 1—0. he does not have a license to do damage to our country and we need to oli mcburnie with be really effective against him. we what proved the winner after half time. west ham convinced they‘d might not win the votes in found an equaliser through robert snodgrass parliament because of the outcome of in injury time, the election but we must win the only for var to show a handball in the buildup. i think the result is bigger than argument. most importantly, we must the performance, it is a huge three points for us. for david and his forge that path to victory, to players, that has happened to us two success forge that path to victory, to success next time, because we are focusing very much on the election 01’ players, that has happened to us two or three times this season, we have just lost, but we have lost disallowed goals, and we would have
6:38 am
four ina been devastated if we had drawn the we have just lost, but we have lost four in a row now and we need to win the next general election. to do game, especially in the second half that we must be radical and relevant we really should have put the opposition to that. for the next general election, which is probably 2024. late 20 20s, into several warm—up tournaments for the australian open have been affected by the bushfires, including an event the british the 20 30s. labour party wins when number six katie swan played in. it was due to be held in the capital canberra, it proceeds people that understand but had to be moved to melbourne. the future and that there is a better future with the labour party. we have to do all of those things, we were advised not even to go it isa we have to do all of those things, it is a big task but the sooner we outside, they told us to try and buy get started, the better. you started masks so that when we were outside about talking about uniting the party. there are some veteran labour we could breathe, basically, and not mps who think it is an existential inhale the smoke. they were able to crisis mode because there is the lurch to the left underjeremy move the tournament to a different corbyn. people who look back to the city, so we ended up staying in canberra for three days without centrist days of tony blair perhaps being able to practise. perceive them as more successful. where do you stand? my starting there‘s worrying news for england, ahead of their first six nations game away to france position as we do not trash the last in three weeks‘ time, labour government, nor do we trash with an injury to winger anthony watson. the last four years. i am concerned he was floored during bath‘s defeat by harlequins in the champions cup. watson has only just that because we lost the last recovered from a knee injury. election that everything we have harlequins won 25—19 but both sides donein election that everything we have done in the last four years has to
6:39 am
were already out of the competition. be put aside. underjeremy corbyn we made some very important mousse. and sale sharks‘ chances firstly, we became the party of of making the quarterfinals are over, after defeat at la rochelle. anti—austerity, against cuts to they were 10 points ahead at one public services. after ten years of stage but the french side came back cutsitis to win 30—23. public services. after ten years of cuts it is blindingly obvious we we re cuts it is blindingly obvious we were correct about that and we the two—time london marathon winner should not chuck that away. we wilson kipsang has been suspended for doping violations. became the party that wanted to invest in public services and he‘s been charged with not informing testing authorities of his whereabouts, manufacturing. we are right about and for tampering with samples. that. i am concerned that we do not his management stressed he has not throw that away. there is a tendency failed a drugs test. kipsang has been banned when you lose lectures to think that everything we put in a row manifesto and believed in previously should go from competition until a hearing. away. that would be wrong. you have sixteen—year—old beau greaves‘ amazing run in the bdo‘s women‘s criticised some of the last world darts championship ma nifesto, criticised some of the last manifesto, was it perhaps too came to end last night. she took reigning champion radical? there has been talk of mikuru suzuki to a deciding set in their semi—final, but lost 2—1. suzuki will face the four—time nationalising mail, water, energy, winner, england‘s lisa ashton, would you go that far? the railways in tonight‘s final. as well? there was a tipping point and you get it sometimes in politics, where the public were not saying that they did not like that, but there was perhaps too much of it. perhaps we should have focused 16, amazing run. it has been lovely, on one or two or three central core things. would you renationalise
6:40 am
those industries? some of them. if she was saying that they were a number of girls who got in touch you look at the railways, with her, saying that after you —— particularly in the north, i do not what she has done they would like to think many need persuading that rail ta ke what she has done they would like to take up darts. when you are in a would be better under government competition you are thinking about things like that, you are very ownership. privatisation has been a focused, but now with the complete disaster. we can have that disappointment of going out, she would be reflect in thinking actually, i have had a wider impact. argument, there is a powerful there is not many sports where you arguing for public ownership on those areas. people will be can see men and women in the same competitions in that way. that is interested to know whether you would the big thing, when you think about commit to that. when you talk about it, you think surely this is the radicalism, that is how people will see it. if we talk about a further perfect stage to see men and women competing at the same time. and i‘m radicalism. we can get bogged down sure we will see more of that as we on the question of rail and criminal highlight these performances. justice, which can be easily answered. the real question is in sure we will see more of that as we highlight these performanceslj sure we will see more of that as we highlight these performances. i like any game that you can play in the 2024, and onto the 20 30s, how to be pub. always helps, a few drinks, put our arms around the changing economy? we have a big data economy, loosen up the arm a little bit. it all helps. it isjust approaching we have lots of people in insecure work, and the question for the labour party is, what is your radical solution, so that inequality
6:41 am
6:40am. authorities in new south wales say goes down and gross inequality is they expect a week long reprieve eradicated? that is where we need to for those fighting the bushfires, aim. do you do that by increasing with cooler conditions forecast. taxation? those earning over £80,000 this comes after firefighters spent would have faced a higher tax friday night tackling gale looking at your manifesto. would you move those policies? you are luring force winds, which merged two bushfires into a ‘mega blaze‘, four times the size me into writing a new manifesto in of greater london. our correspondent, katy watson five years' time! but these are the is at a relief centre in victoria which is helping those policies that spooked small business owners and people will be interested who have lost their homes. to know that as the potential new you are in an area pretty badly leader of the labour party and the affected by those fires, how people potential next prime minister, would you look at things like increasing there coping? i am in wangaratta taxation? when i have spoken to people around the country about this, the general proposition that showground where you can see behind if you want good public services, education to work for all children me people have come here in their in this country, we must have a pot caravans, their tents, this is pet of money and those that have more friendly, they have brought their animals, their dogs there, their would pay more in. most people agree donkeys, their chickens, anyone here who needs a place to stay from with that. but it is a question of communities who have been in a line how much. the most important thing of bushfires, because this is one of is the question of trust. people the bigger cities in the region, so have said i do not mind paying for it has welcomed thousands of people who have been told, or been advised the health service, public services, education, that is a good thing, but to evacuate their homes. i am with
6:42 am
i need to trust that you will do the right thing with my money. that is jamie who is the director of why restoring trust in the labour community well—being here, this has party is a force for good and change been a massivejob community well—being here, this has been a massive job for you this and that is the fundamental and most year. it has, the last few days have been really intense, we have had important thing. under keir starmer as primaries there we would see an thousands did to leave their homes, increase in taxation? —— as prime and many have come here to stay. this is something that will continue. yeah, our fire season goes until march, so we are in early minister —— so under keir starmer as prime minister or there would be an january, we are hoping is that the increase in taxation? i will not be fires can get contained, anything lowered into writing my manifesto at could happen. the weather forecast the moment. as long as we have the is great for the next few days but right proportions and that people we will see much higher temperatures believe that the money will be used through until the end of summer. you wisely. take criminal justice, are used to bushfires here in believe that the money will be used wisely. take criminaljustice, you can reduce crime by putting your australia, this is nothing new, the money into your primary schools and country has gone through bigger helping children that are droughts and there have been higher struggling. most people would tell you, if you can make that work, i am temperatures, has it shocked people even here who are used to this sort of thing? the scale of the fires is up you, if you can make that work, i am up for that, because you might really significant, it is not uncommon for us really significant, it is not uncommon for us to really significant, it is not uncommon for us to get fires of some actually help that child have a sort. what has really been better life. so, prevention rather concerning for everyone is, it feels than cure? yes, particularly with like all the country is on fire, and criminal justice. than cure? yes, particularly with criminaljustice. the than cure? yes, particularly with that has certainly raised anxiety, criminal justice. the number of times i have seen children
6:43 am
combined with the fact that we are struggling in primary school and seeing fires we would not normally then be excluded from secondary seeing fires we would not normally see on this scale and this early in school and ending up in prison. if you want to reduce crime, do not the fire season. the fact that we build a bigger presence, put your now have a few days of respite, does money into primary schools and give that mean people will feel children a better chance of not co mforta ble that mean people will feel comfortable to go back home, this committing crime in the first place. campsite will empty out?” comfortable to go back home, this campsite will empty out? i don't think it will empty out, some people you are reluctant to commit to specific policy, which is fair will feel comfortable to go home, some roads will open back up and enoughin specific policy, which is fair enough in many ways. are you afraid some roads will open back up and some of the advice is people can go of this centrist label? people have back home, but they need to be aware said you will not be called the that the fire is not contained in centralist because it does not all areas and they could the wind appeal to the grassroot members, the picks up again and the temperatures votes of whom you need to secure the go picks up again and the temperatures 9° up picks up again and the temperatures go up again. we will be open for as long as people need it. and that is leadership? i want to secure the concern, in the last few days fundamental change. if you look at there was concern that with the high every measure of inequality, we are heading in the wrong direction, temperatures and high winds we could something must be done about that. see the bushfires spreading, and they have spread somewhat, now it is that is fundamental and radical. they have spread somewhat, now it is the question of trying to contain frankly, all of the labels, i find them, so using these days wisely to just get in the way. i have always be able to build containment lines, tried to look at the problem and stop the spread for when work out, with others, what the temperatures rise again. sadly we answer to that is, without bothering are temperatures rise again. sadly we a re early temperatures rise again. sadly we are early in the bushfire season, —— bothering and resources here, people are answer to that is, without bothering — — bothering what answer to that is, without bothering —— bothering what the labels are. i do not need other peoples names
6:44 am
absolutely exhausted, they have been tattooed on me to make a decision. i working long shifts, people on the have always made my own decisions. ground, and it is set to continue but it does help to identify the for a good few weeks, possibly months yet. katie, for now, thank direction of the party. if we are you, really interesting to hear those stories. more from her later going to eradicate any quality or in the programme. gross inequality we must be radical. we might moan a lot about our does that mean we continue —— does weather but when you see things like that it that mean you continue down the path weather but when you see things like thatitis weather but when you see things like that it is a great relief. here‘s matt with a look ofjeremy corbyn and his way of doing things? jeremy corbyn said we at this morning‘s weather. should be the party of did you see the full moon last anti—austerity and against cuts to public services, and he was night, either of you? very early absolutely right about that. in the night! it was up at half past three whole general election campaign i did not find anyone on any doorstep said you cannot have missed it. you saying, this is really good, the we re said you cannot have missed it. you were not looking. about 20 past local authority has got the seven last night. this was the resources to provide for this. lovely view in wales —— wells in everybody said we are on our knees regarding public services. if anyone somerset. england and wales, we got some cracking shots of it from our goes to see a doctor or egp, no one weather watchers. clear skies for is criticising the level of care. no some as well. last night of course one is saying the state of the was a penumbral eclipse as well, nation is good. and yet the liberal when the outer shadow cast by earth with the sun behind us went on to party lost 59 seats. most families
6:45 am
the moon, just dark it slightly and will have noticed the impact of you had to have keen eyes to be able austerity. was that catastrophic, to see the slight darkness because was that down tojeremy corbyn? it was not a full eclipse as such austerity. was that catastrophic, was that down to jeremy corbyn?“ was that down to jeremy corbyn?“ but one or two there was a little was down to a number of things. i bit too much clout about uncertainty was down to a number of things. i was in 44 constituencies during the across the northern half of the country but bear with it, you may be election campaign, and a discussion able to see a little bit of them men every time is, what are people tonight, even if it has lost its saying, what happens when you knock status as a full moon, it should on the doors? many people talked still look spectacular across scotla nd about the leadership of the labour still look spectacular across scotland and northern ireland. the cloud last night brought a party, fairly or unfairly. brexit difference to the weather for today, came up fairly or unfairly. what was gone is the sunshine for some of you and a lot windier with gales in many perceived to be the overloads of the areas and incredibly mild as well but the winds dragging all the way manifesto came up and in some cases anti—semitism came up. there were up but the winds dragging all the way up from the azores, on the forward edge of this weather front which other issues. but collectively, we will be bringing rain and it is on lost the trust of people as a force the forward edge of it as it pushes then we are seeing the strongest of for good and change. once you lose that trust, it is very hard to win then we are seeing the strongest of the winds touching 50, 60 miles an them back. out of those reasons hour at times the winds touching 50, 60 miles an hourat times in the winds touching 50, 60 miles an hour at times in and around some hills and costs but certainly a blowy day right across the board. where the labour party lost, we then this rain, at the moment across would you place the leadership of jeremy corbyn? you have expressed scotland, northern ireland but heavy your dissatisfaction when you stood and persistent for some two and splitting the country into two, back from the front bench in 2016, scotland, northern ireland by far did he failas
6:46 am
the wettest of the weather and most back from the front bench in 2016, did he fail as a leader? jeremy corbyn led us through really persistent in western areas in some difficult times as a labour party. parts of north—east scotland will not see too much at all, same to the he positioned those in the right far north, sunshine and showers and place on anti—austerity. but we have eventually the brighter weather lost the election and now he is pushes southwards across scotland, northern ireland during the second stepping down. that is the right half of the day. that means further thing to do. he received a stonking ten out of ten from rebecca southin long—bailey. where would you put half of the day. that means further south in england and wales, for this side of the country, a lot of cloud him? i will not rank him out of ten. about, a few spots of rain and drizzle and in the west, many places he isa him? i will not rank him out of ten. he is a friend of mine. he is a dry, even a few glimpses of sunshine colleague. that would trivialise things. he is a friend of rebecca but later on across northern england and northern west wales, it will turn more extensively wetter. long—bailey and emily thornberry and they have ranked him. they have done temperatures could get up to 13 or 14 temperatures could get up to 13 or 1a in north—east england for a time that to separate themselves from his during the middle part of the day ideas. he is a friend and a but dropping in the north later but colleague and i respect him. i overall, well above where they should be. this evening and thanked him for what he has done but we are moving on now and it‘s why we overnight, ran across northern are entering a leadership campaign. england wales gradually spreading towards the south—east corner. it lam are entering a leadership campaign. i am launching my campaign today and allows clear skies to develop in lam going i am launching my campaign today and i am going up to oldham this morning then we have a big event in northern parts of the country. with manchester. i want to bring that a few showers, it means there is a energy and sense of movement to the risk of ice around as temperatures future, which is about uniting the fall close to freezing in some areas. a north—south divide as we party, making us an effective
6:47 am

6:48 am
composed and proposed other rule glad you clarified that. thank you, changes as well. in the end, i then said the test for me, keir starmer, matt. lots of her e—mail straightaway. we would love to see the test for me as leader of the your photos of the moon. or you can labour party will be only when people have left our party because of anti—semitism feel that they can tweet them at us and we will show return, will i be truly satisfied you on the programme. that we have dealt with a problem. but there must be leadership from we‘ll be back with the top, and a personal involvement the headlines at 7:00. in this, and i neverwant our now, it‘s time for click. activists and members and our supporters to ever knock on a door again in any election and to be met with a response, i usually vote for the labour party but i will not because of anti—semitism. the labour party but i will not because of anti-semitism. so, under keir starmer, if there is evidence dramatic music. of anti—semitism, they will be out of anti—semitism, they will be out of the labour party? absolutely. i wa nt to of the labour party? absolutely. i want to ask you about brexit, you campaigned for a conformity vote on a deal. that did not go down well in welcome to the biggest this part of the world, it was the tipping point in some
6:49 am
tech show on earth. constituencies. do you regret that, are you ces ready? that arguably that lost you seats and heartlands? we all have to take featuring 180,000 people, responsibility for the loss of this general election. the labour party spent many, many months trying to from 160 countries, argue for a deal. i do not know how with 4,000 companies, many amendments! and one pizza—making robot. argue for a deal. i do not know how many amendments i put in parliament, there is a deal on the customs union, we try to get that deal over it's ces! the line, try to get it over the line, only when we were faced with the damaging deal that the goodness, he sounded excited didn‘t he? so he should. government had negotiated that we even contemplate a second referendum yeah, absolutely, it is exciting. position. that was decided by our we only got ourselves a blooming studio this year overlooking co nfe re nce position. that was decided by our conference last september. it was the actual show. that‘s ces just out there, hello! what our members and trade unions oh yeah! we nt what our members and trade unions went for. on the doorstep, i sought it is quite something and we have for you the latest announcements talking to voters, they did not understand where the labour party from here, as well as getting our stood on brexit and did not think hands on some of the most exciting that you were reading on this.” looking gadgets that have made their way to las vegas. thought that we should have been in fact, spencer, you‘ve been clearer as to what we would do after in the water with one the election, as to whether we would of them, haven‘t you? certainly have, yes. there‘s water in las stay in or leave, but that is vegas and here it is. another matter. different things came up on the doorstep. to be this is lake las vegas,
6:50 am
an oasis in the desert. honest, what came up in my experience more than anything was this is stacey and this people telling me i am voting for the conservative party to get brexit done. i feel that we did not knock is the hydrofoiler xe1. that phrase down. had we done we might have had a better push back. it‘s an electric bike that one of the things i am determined to you pedal on the water. do, and! of course it is. one of the things i am determined to do, and i have started already, is to go to the heiress will be lost as you pedal, the electric motor around the country and have that honest conversation. i was in leeds turns the propeller which pulls you forward, and the hydrofoils underneath act like aircraft wings la st honest conversation. i was in leeds and lift the whole last week asking people how and why caboodle out of the water. we lost and what we could do to it is the same sort of thing you may address it. people will ask, are you have seen on racing yachts. the man, and i say that because some well, it looks people believe it is time for a manageable, doesn‘t it? female leader of the labour party. i mean, how hard can it be, really? 0k. so, argue the correct person? the leader of the opposition must win one, two, three... back not only our heartland seats, of course, but also scotland, where and as long as you pedal hard enough at the start, we are down to one mp. wales, where you can get the lift you need, and you are sailing! we are down to one mp. wales, where we have lost six mps, and if you draw a line from london to bristol they said, "do you want to go for a bike ride in las vegas?" and look south, there are 120 seats
6:51 am
and i said "yeah, why not?" they also said, "do you want to go and look south, there are 120 seats and we only hold a handful of them. for a trip on lake las vegas?" so they have to deal with england, didn‘t realise they meant wales, scotland and northern at the same time. argh! ireland. as regards to a female and here is the problem. leader, we have very good female until you get the hang of it, candidates and the spirits have been there‘s quite a bit of this. very high amongst all of us. we had argh! good hustings last week and we have and this. ..and this. all set out our cases in a constructive manner. that is how it oh, yeah. should be and are members in the end will make their decision, according to the arguments, the vision and the passion that is put into this. people might want to know more about 0h, oh, no! oh, no! oh, no! the trick, apparently, who keir starmer is. for example, is if you feel the bike starting to overbalance, steer into the tilt but lean you have two children. what was on the other way. bleep. and when that doesn‘t work, tv in your household? on christmas try not to swear on camera. day? gavin and stacey. we have a now, i was hoping to show you more of my successful rides, but you‘ve already seen all of them. young —— day? gavin and stacey. we have a young “ we day? gavin and stacey. we have a young —— we have a routine, we are before the winter water temperatures very early because we have young got the better of me. children. we go walking on the heath so please watch stacey being too with the children, they hate that, cool for school while i tell

holiday in malaysia in august. let‘s bring allison eastward in, good morning to you. dickie has said the family vow to fight on as they search for answers over nora‘s death. they should knuckle down, get on with thejob, be proper royals, is journalist and broadcaster tim walker is here to tell us that the perception of the situation what‘s caught his eye. in canada? that is very british, dickie, i think in canada it is, there is a bit more of a lenient attitude toward the role of the this is all about darren frost. many royals. actually we did a survey just before christmas of our will not know the name but they were not the actions. some interesting readers, and many of them had a great deal of empathy for harry and meghan. we asked if they made the comments from him. he was a civil servant who took on london bridge royal family proud, or made them terrace. he feels donald trump is my proud to be royal fans, and they decision to assassinate the un in really respond well to harry and meghan's personality, the way that general will result in further they carry out their engagements, terrorist attacks and will and also i think there is a belief radicalise a generation of young that perhaps the monarchy could people. he says what feeds terror is evolve in order to encompass the actions like this where people in type of model that harry wants. yes, power act asjudge, jury it is theirjob, but the thing is actions like this where people in power act as judge, jury and executioner across borders and
7:14 am
jurisdictions. who is he that he can have that impact on our lives? he is that harry has made it clear for years that he is desperately setting up an organisation called unhappy. and when your whole life is extinguish hate to essentially build bridges, make people think more your work, and now it involves his about their actions and in the baby son, it is eventually something thatis baby son, it is eventually something tabloid press, their words. you may that is untenable for him and for meghan, andl that is untenable for him and for meghan, and i think it is some thing recall that david merritt, the father of jack merritt who was that child is quite concerned about killed in that incident, he was very as harry's father, and they are angry with the comments that boris looking at working through right now. it is the point, dickie, just johnson and other politicians made in an attempt to politicise what because it hasn‘t happened before happened at london bridge. if there doesn‘t mean it can‘t happen. and to is something to be learned from a certain extent, meghan has been this, it is that we need to take made out as the villain here, she was accused of strategically trying responsibility for our words. to bag a prince, and now she is particularly after terrible tragedies like this. it is very walking away from being a princess, she is in a lose— lose situation. difficult because in one breath, they need to look like leaders, they walking away from being a princess, she is in a lose— lose situationm wa nt to they need to look like leaders, they want to look like they are in isa she is in a lose— lose situationm is a no—win situation, but if you control of the situation. is a fine are going to downsize slightly, downsize and stay in one country, line between creating more of this don‘t try and live part of your life and becoming self fulfilling. after in one country, for example in canada, and another part of your and becoming self fulfilling. after a tragedy like this, the people we life in the uk. at the end of the should listen to another politicians day, canada has got immigration but the people who have affected is
7:15 am
laws, how is harry going to be able right that we listen to them.“ tells you something the people who have suffered most of those who want to live there for a certain time of to dial down the rhetoric. the year as well as live in the uk? absolutely, it is very interesting you can do everything from here, you can downsize from the united in darren. ‘s comments. he talks kingdom, use this as a base and if you need to go away for a couple of about survivors guilt. he feels guilty about surviving it and it is weeks or three weeks at a time, do that. but don‘t split yourself a human tragedy we are talking about. that is why we all need to between two countries and say "we wa nt to between two countries and say "we want to back off, be in dothan —— use our words with considerable financially independent." what does that mean? they are not financially care. in the daily mail, the bbc's independent now, how are they going to live without the support they have at the moment? there is gender pay gap and disputes rumble speculation in the times newspaper that they were actually driven out, on. this is a landmark ruling in the future of the royal family is favour of samir ahmed, the presenter that it will be paired down of newswatch. i cannot think of many significantly and there is speculation that they jumped significantly and there is speculation that theyjumped before they were pushed. i think that is media organisations were somebody pure speculation. they were not like me can come on and talk to an driven out, driven out by whom? taps embarrassing internal matter for you by the media, maybe that was part of quys embarrassing internal matter for you guys and that is one of the great things about the bbc. what is bad about the bbc is that it is very the decision. certainly not driven u nfortu nate about the bbc is that it is very unfortunate that this had to come to out by the royal family buckingham china not at all. the news watch palace. they are senior they have a host samir ahmed, she was getting
7:16 am
job to do. look at harry and the invictus games, that is close to his £465 to present an episode of heart. they have got patronage is of newswatch against £3000 thatjeremy vine was getting to presenting charities, what other charities going to do when they feel that they are being let down by two people, points of your programme. the bbc they want to support them, but are living elsewhere and might drift in defence came down to a glint in his on and off occasionally? it must eye which is a very subjective thing. you can make anybody a star. have been a huge crisis of conscience for them. alison, to you can make anybody a star. you can bring you back, are they naive to think that by moving to canada that will take the spotlight away from them? because so far it has only even have somebody like me getting intensified. on in the papers! it is very subjective. you do here about people i would like to continue talking about streamlining the monarchy which is the cover of hello in the bbc getting 600,000. they always uk right now and i think dickie is tend to be a man. i don‘t hear very often, not just at the right, the idea that they were tend to be a man. i don‘t hear very pushed out in any way is speculation often, notjust at the bbc, but across the city and business andl pushed out in any way is speculation and i think the better way to look general, of women paid that money. at it is it could be a better way if fundamental problem and this forward for everybody, you know, the doesn‘t just apply to the media business but to the wider show monarchy needs to be trimmed down, business but to the wider show business industry as well, it is that his child's goal and it was very ha rd to business industry as well, it is very hard to put a price on
7:17 am
made clear in the latest royal portrait and harry and meghan want a very different role within the royal somebody‘s public appeal, their profile, but they may bring to a family that has them distance. is it film for example, how much that may make because their name is attached realistic to expect that they can to it. people will say, maybe jeremy actually accomplish the? you know, are they looking at canada as some kind of haven? from the paparazzi, vine is a bigger name than samir from active press? yes, there is no ahmed. why? he has been given certain kinds ofjobs that she paparazzi culture in canada per se hasn‘t been. it‘s not like she said, i will not do that, i will not but will be to have the world's present a video two show. it is biggest celebrities back it will difficult subject but the reality is, we expect the bbc to be a change ina biggest celebrities back it will change in a heartbeat. it does not progressive organisation, to be mean the british paparazzi would not ahead of the curve and i think it is follow them out there. many thanks to you both. it is just approaching rightjudgment ahead of the curve and i think it is right judgment we have ahead of the curve and i think it is rightjudgment we have had here and i hope rightjudgment we have had here and ihope in rightjudgment we have had here and i hope in future, women will get a fair crack of the web. it has 18 minutes past seven. good morning. here‘s matt with a look at this morning‘s weather. exposed contracts. it all comes down it feels like it is not as cold but to money unfortunately. the future it is getting a bit wet? it role for harry and megan, this is in certainly is. not as chilly as it the guardian, looking at whether was this morning, yesterday morning, claims they wish to be independent sorry. good morning. we do not have

7:21 am
billy abernathy—hope came up with an idea to help another sunshine and chariot day the homeless in bristol. instead of donating cash, tomorrow for scotland and northern he designed an alternative plastic chip which can be swapped for food, drink and shelter. ireland. most places will be dry sadly, billy was killed in a motorbike accident in thailand in 2018, so didn‘t see his idea become a reality. his family have now launched after some early morning cloud and the billy chip in his memory. john maguire visited bristol drizzle. temperatures tomorrow, to find out how it works. still highest in the south at only billy was the most incredible energy. he would light up a room as around five celsius at best in he walked in and everyone kind of scotland. that leads us into a knew the night had started when billy had turned up that he, on the chilly night on sunday and into flipside for a 20—year—old, was also monday. by monday itself, we are all watching what is happening in the incredibly caring. he was an incredible person and i am so lucky atla ntic watching what is happening in the atlantic and this will be driving to be able to say that he was my the weather for the rest of this coming week. turning very wet, very little brother because nobody else gets the privilege of doing that. an windy across many western areas in ambulance driver and care worker, he had always tried to help people and monday. the evening rush—hour, a conversation with his father about torrential rain potentially and loose change, spawned an idea. one winds could top 70 or maybe 80 miles that his family has turned into an hour. much of it in scotland and reality in his name. the billy chip. eastern england will stay dry so, this is how it works, the throughout the day with some spares businesses supporting the scheme have a in the window. simply come are sunshine, the best of which in the morning. temperatures on the in, a coffee please. and a billy rise and overall next week, it is
7:22 am
chip as well. one of those will cost getting temperatures above where it should be. we will see quite stormy you £2. you can then hand it to a homeless person. they can bring it at times with the chance of some back and exchange it for a cup of tea or coffee or a sandwich or travel disruption. keep a close eye on cash. —— forecast. whatever. it is a brilliant, simple but effective idea. we can tell people about billy who never met him but also for his friends, i think it when lynsey ritchie was diagnosed with breast cancer last year, she had one overwhelming is really important, but people who thought — to have her breasts never met him, it is to let them removed for the best chance of survival. after breastfeeding four children know that somebody who yes, is no and donating milk for other newborns, she also wanted longer here, he cared that much to celebrate what they‘d done about them and actually, there is when lynsey ritchie plenty of people behind the billy was diagnosed with breast cancer for her and held a party forefront they care about you too. to say goodbye to them. sleeping rough can be cold, lynsey had a double mastectomy five dangerous and stressful. with help days before christmas and she‘s here to tell us how she‘s doing. in short supply. what are people like? do they help you? no, many i‘m great, thank you. you look people do not care. people like the great. tell us about your party. public support, from the public, and i make money. often passers-by feel conflicted about giving money when i got diagnosed with breast directly to homeless people so this provides an option. this man runs a cancer, it was a shock but i always knew i wanted both of them off and
7:23 am
charity that cooks home—made meals as you said, my boots had done more for homeless people and believes the in their lifetime than a lot of billy chip is an effective way to help. it is the best way for the people so i thought it was only local businesses to engage the fitting to give them a sendoff. there was never a doubt that i would homeless people, which is another issue, they find it difficult and do that. tell us about the party, we sometimes they find it disturbing so can see the cake. amazing cake. it this would be a nice way to help and have that relationship where they have that relationship where they have something to give and in turn was a party to thank my breasts but the business can provide them with a also to thank my family and friends hot drink and support and a sandwich. this is part of the reason who have been an amazing support. i have been very positive to do this why this cafe is one of the first to journey but i couldn‘t have done it without the support of my family and sign up. we like it here and obviously, the homeless community is friends the idea that you had that pa rt obviously, the homeless community is part of that and we know them and we party sums up your attitude towards meet them all the time and we feel all of this from when you are for them, we create relationships and to give back to the community diagnosed, through treatment and now hopefully at the other side of it. makes sense if you are part of the fabric of it. it gives back to you as well. on the back of the chip given you a new lease of life but other words billy wrote in an impromptu mother‘s day card, you are also a new mindset? absolutely. i am never going to be the same after a fabulous and do not forget it. in death as in life, really continues cancer diagnosis but it will be a to help those most in need. john new normal for cancer diagnosis but it will be a new normalfor me cancer diagnosis but it will be a new normal for me and it will be
7:24 am
better because already i am a lot maguire, bbc news, bristol. what a happier and more content since my diagnosis. my breasts sent me a great story and what a great idea and we will talk to billy‘s family message, to slow down and enjoy my later in the programme to find out beautiful boys, bring my family together because my husband has been how it all works and to get an idea able to stay with me through this and an assessment ofjust what it journey. he normally works a waste would have meant to him. we will talk about that a little later but wood has been fabulous to strengthen the family and i think going let‘s run you through the front of the newspapers this morning and forward , the family and i think going forward, that will be really actually there is really only one beneficial. it has made you story in town, the fallout of course com pletely beneficial. it has made you completely yours refocus your future life and amongst all that, they must of prince harry and meghan deciding have been some really dark times as to step back from duties. they deny well? initially when you get driving them out, we know talks are diagnosed, i was still feeding my continuing at one of the top stories this morning as the news that the baby. i was quite low risk in terms royal family is hoping to have this of getting breast cancer but i had resolved within a matter of days rather than letting it drag out into triple negative which is unusual and weeks. it‘s as the palace seeks to there‘s not a lot of research on the reassure the couple about their future role. lots of coverage of the triple negative treatment, i want to get any other treatments, there is emotional pressure it has put on the queen and the front page of the daily mirror today, royals and no targeted therapy so it was quite crisis. it says the queen‘s bravery scary finding out and when you get and is praising the queen and says diagnosed with cancer and then you
7:25 am
it has —— she has come out to steady have to go through various tests to make sure it has not spread, what the ship after the bombshell earlier they will do with you, so you got in the week. it was said she was about a month and it was horrendous. saddened and disappointed by the news which came as a surprise to that is such a long time, isn‘t it? it was very, very difficult. i went her, reportedly she only found out when we did, when they released a statement. the same picture on the to my local maggi centre and they we re to my local maggi centre and they were brilliant. when it is said to front of the sun this morning. i have gone with the headline the me, you have to treat it like frown. a pun on the royal drama on diabetes or epilepsy. nowadays, more people are living well with cancer, netflix. grim faced over harry and it is not a death sentence. when you meghan, it says. as we have heard a chilly think about it, there is so much they can do and hopefully i got lots of debate on both sides about what the role should be and the all clear yesterday so hopefully crucially, if they do decide to step that will continue. how important is back from the front—line role, what financial arrangements may be put in that will continue. how important is that mindset because she took about place. we are told those meetings chemo being healing, not the poison continue. similar on the front page people associate it with. you had of the daily telegraph, saying the that same mindset in hospital. tell queen wants the rift repaired in 72 hours. to take you inside the papers me about the jumper. once you start for a moment, in hours. to take you inside the papers fora moment, in the hours. to take you inside the papers for a moment, in the daily mirror treatment, it gets easier because there is a double page interview you are feeling quite active and proactive and i just focused with sir keir starmer, would be leader of the labour party and one you are feeling quite active and proactive and ijust focused on you are feeling quite active and proactive and i just focused on the chemo was a healing coming into my

7:29 am
department of state, they say the i will have all of the details extradition request is highly inappropriate. what do you make of right here on breakfast. that statement? well look, i think like most people, i am well accustomed to hearing nonsense coming from the trump it‘s saturday 11th january. administration. let‘s not forget what has happened here. this lady is good morning to you. accused of taking harry‘s life and fleeing the country. no—one is above iran‘s president hassan rouhani says the law and in modern society you do the missiles fired at a ukranian not get to move to another country passengerjet on wednesday were due to ‘human error‘. mr rouhani described might breaka not get to move to another country might break a law in that country, the incident as an unforgivable and then leave. so i will leave the mistake and promised those responsible would be identified and prosecuted. viewers to conclude which party is our diplomatic correspondent caroline hawley joins behaving inappropriately here. the us now from beirut. british authorities who have been working diligently to prepare this good morning, caroline hawley. what extradition request over the last few weeks? or the trump is the situation now after this administration, who are clearly escalation? this is a mass about intent onjust ripping up administration, who are clearly intent on just ripping up all relationships that they have, turn from iran, which was insisting including their strongest ally. and on, until this morning, that it was a technical problem that had brought seeing where it gets them. i can down the plane. that it was not tell your viewers this morning 100% anne sacoolas is coming back to the uk. i wanted to ask you about that, human error, not a missile, and they said that any suggestion that it was
7:30 am
about how confident you and the family are about her being returned. was ridiculous, lies and because as we said in the psychological warfare. now they have introduction the uk government is admitted it. iran is under immense saying it is a matter for the introduction the uk government is saying it is a matterfor the united states and the us is saying the pressure internationally and request is highly inappropriate so domestically. it felt it had to do you think you will ever get her co—operate with the outside world back here? no doubt in my mind over this. ukraine investigators whatsoever. 100%. she is coming where in the country, the canadians we re where in the country, the canadians were on their way, and to —— and the back. the only thing i cannot tell suggestion was that a cover—up was you is when. now, if this not possible. president rouhani administration chooses to just blamed an atmosphere of threats and ignore the extradition request or intimidation from an aggressive reach out out of hand, i do not american regime for the context in think there is anything any of us will be able to do but let me just which this terrible mistake happened, but i think it does offer remind your viewers, this administration will not be here for ever and a day but that extradition the iranians the opportunity to try to cooperate and reduce tensions request will be. and it will simply with the west. that would be one be represented if it is rejected and good outcome, if that could come you know, all we can do in those about. absolutely, caroline hawley in beirut, many thanks. circumstances is hope that a reasonable administration comes in there are just two days left for the six labour leadership and deals with the request fairly. candidates to gain the backing they need to get to the next now, if it, you know, if the trump stage of the contest, and it‘s sir keir starmer administration are intent on who currently has the most reaching out they need to think —— nominations, and the support of the uk‘s largest trade union, unison.

are intent on rejecting it they need earlier on breakfast we asked him to think carefully because they will if he was the right man for the job, be consequences but i do not want to given that many people say the next get ahead of ourselves, lets do with the british way and be pragmatic and leader should be a woman. ta ke the british way and be pragmatic and take it a step at a time and it has the leader of the opposition been presented and it has to go to has to win back, not lawyers here in washington. let‘s only our heartland seats, of course, but also scotland — just assume for one moment that they where we are down to one mp — are going to deal with it fairly, wales — where we lost seats — despite the public comments that i and if you draw a line from london coming out of the state department. to bristol and look south, it is good to talk to you and i am there's over 120 seats and we hold a handful of them. sure we will speak to you again so the leader of the labour party about this but thank you so much, has to be able to speak for the whole of england... radd seiger, spokesman for the dunn family. stay with us, headlines 01:31:31,091 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 coming up. 0k. ..the whole of scotland, the whole of wales, and the whole of northern ireland. a long way to go. now, as to the female, we have got really good candidates in this, and the spirit of the election is really good. we had hustings in parliament last week. and everybodyjust set out their case in a very constructive way, and that is the way this race should be — constructive and respectful — and the members in the end will make their decision, according to the arguments, the vision and the passion that is put into it. let‘s talk now to our political correspondent tony bonsignore. tony, did you feel he made clear what direction he‘d take the party in?
7:32 am
all of the would—be leaders are laying out their stalls for what they would bring to the labour party and the direction that they would ta ke and the direction that they would take it in. do we know enough about keir starmer now? clearly, what sir keir starmer now? clearly, what sir keir starmer now? clearly, what sir keir starmer is trying to do here, he is looking beyond the stage of mp's he is looking beyond the stage of mp‘s nominations, or ruminations, he is looking beyond the main contest to reach out to the members who will vote and he is saying to them, look, if you feel that i am a centrist, that we will go back in some way or go back to the days of tony blair, do not worry. he went out of his way in that interview, saying he would not trash the jeremy corbyn view in that interview, saying he would not trash thejeremy corbyn view or the last four years, he said the m essa g es the last four years, he said the messages on anti—austerity we are really positive. in that sense, you can see what sir keir starmer is trying to do. we detonate —— we did not get much detail, however. he said he would not write a manifesto
7:33 am
live on tv. but what members will ask themselves is if they do vote him in, what next? will he continue on this radical route, or mac to go back towards the centre? that is the question members will have to consider. tony, for now, thank you. tony bonsignore, our political reporter. the northern ireland assembly will sit later today, following a deal to restore the devolved government after power—sharing broke down three years ago. the assembly will elect a speaker, a first ministerfrom the dup, and a deputy first minister from sinn fein. keith doyle is outside stormont for us. keith what more can we expect to happen today? what can we expect from developments today? yes, good morning. pretty soon we expect the doors to be open here and later today, as you have said, the devolved government will return and be up and running. on thursday the northern ireland secretary, gillian smith, and the irish deputy prime minister, simon coveney, made that deal to the
7:34 am
parties outside of this building here. there was enough and that deal to get the dup to say it was a fair and balanced deal and then for sinn fein to sign up to it as well. —— julian smith. in that deal there was the legal status for the irish language, something that they had said was absolutely essential to get them back in government. what we expect today is at one o‘clock the speaker and deputy speakers will be signed in and then the first minister, who we expect to be arlene foster, the leader of the dup, she is expected to be first minister. deputy first minister is possibly sinn fein‘s michelle o‘neill. we do not know. the ministerial seats will be divided out, three for the dup, two for sinn fein and one for the alliance party and one for the sdlp. the prime minister said that this was a great step forward for the people of northern ireland and there isa people of northern ireland and there is a collective sigh of relief in northern ireland that something akin toa northern ireland that something akin to a normal politics will be back up and running today. a huge day at
7:35 am
stormont, thank you, keith doyle. and we will follow developments across the bbc today. the us state department said it was ‘highly inappropriate‘ for britain to apply for the extradition of an american woman charged in connection with the death of the teenager, harry dunn, who was killed in a road accident in northamptonshire. anne sacoolas — the wife of an american intelligence officer — returned to the us claiming diplomatic immunity following the crash in august. the home office says the matter is now "a decision for the us authorities" but the dunn family spokesperson told breakfast they are certain ms sacoolas will return to the uk to face justice. the struggling department store debenhams begins to close branches today as part of restructuring plans. 19 shops will shut this month, affecting more than 600 staff. meanwhile, the baby clothes retailer, mothercare, is closing its final stores after it fell into administration in november
7:36 am
with a loss of 2,500 jobs. it‘s been a momentous few days following the announcement from the duke and duchess of sussex that they plan to step back as "senior" royals and become financially independent. but so many questions remain unanswered, including where they will live and how they‘ll support themselves. in the studio with us is former team uk invictus games vice captain, michelle turner, with her daughter maya. we‘re alsojoined by the economist‘s anne mcelvoy, who is outside buckingham palace. this a very good morning to you. let us get your take on things, firstly. you have watched this unfold, you have met the duke and the chest, it must be like they are under a lot of pressure. yes, but for me, prince harry created the invictus games, and it is heads pride and joy. —— his pride and joy. he has shone the spotlight onto wounded, injured,
7:37 am
sick soldiers across the world. do you feel like it is something he can continue and, even if his official title changes? does it matter to families like you? not to us, no. he has changed so many lives and he will continue his dedication to us, it is something he is so passionate about and we see that and we are so grateful. how important is it to have someone like prince harry as the figurehead. he created us, but that ongoing commitment to it means that ongoing commitment to it means that it stays front and centre and gets out of the headlines and the scrutiny and attention that it deserves? yes, definitely. we know the passion that he puts into it and then everything that he does. he will go into camps, and i think he uses it. so, for us in the military, if you have had to leave the military, it is really tough, i do wa nt military, it is really tough, i do want that hand back in. i think that is what he does. i think the invictus games as his hand back in.
7:38 am
he loves the, rodri and he really makes a he loves the, rodri and he really makesa genuine he loves the, rodri and he really makes a genuine difference. some people question whether the royals are to distant, but you have in your hand, maya, something, tell us about it? i wrote a letter to prince harry just to say thank you for helping my mother and all of her friends. do you want to hold that up so that we can see it on the camera? tell me what you wrote in that letter? so, i wrote stuff about how kind he is and stuff to help people and there was this one boy who had no arms, and he could swim 50 metres in a swimming pool by himself. you will not mind ifi pool by himself. you will not mind if i read a little bit of this because it is really lovely that you wrote this. you said that you were present and met some lovely people and there was one boy who had no
7:39 am
legs and no arms and he was amazing because the spam lens and a pool all on his own. that is the sort of thing that makes such a difference, isn‘t it? —— so amazing because he swa m isn‘t it? —— so amazing because he swam the lengths in april on his own. ‘— swam the lengths in april on his own. —— and a swimming pool on his own. —— and a swimming pool on his own. yes, it is absolutely fantastic. when we hear stories like that, it is so important that the work that they do, and the invictus games, quite a public commitment from a prince harry. but there are a lot of things that we do not see or hear on lot of things that we do not see or hearona lot of things that we do not see or hear on a regular basis, and that is really important, isn‘t it, anne mcelvoy? absolutely, and if you look at the attempts now, and clearly talks are going on between the palace and the duke and that chess about what their future role will be after the slightly bad—tempered outbreak that has happened this week. —— duchess. it is not whether
7:40 am
prince harry will be committed to causes that mean a lot to him, but how will that work in practice? will it bea how will that work in practice? will it be a semidetached relationship? can you step down from a senior role in the royal family and still be actively acting as a royal? there are not that many core royals around to do that sort of work. as a prominent memberof to do that sort of work. as a prominent member of the royal family, if you want to spend a lot of time in north america instead, with some time spent here, we do not know much, i think there will be questions raised about that? we have heard from michelle first hand about the impact that prince harry has had on herfamily. the impact that prince harry has had on her family. why the impact that prince harry has had on herfamily. why can‘t he the impact that prince harry has had on her family. why can‘t he walk that middle ground? just because it hasn‘t been done before does not mean that it is not possible.“ depends what the middle ground is that you are suggesting that he walks. if you are suggesting that he just continues to keep up with his charitable endeavours, i think
7:41 am
people will be personally very grateful to him who are connected to those charities. but that is not the only role, it is also to be around and be available, and i think what they are saying and the sussexes are saying and meghan markle clearly feels strongly about this, and she does not want to feel that those duties are incumbent upon them. sol think it does become a bit of a pick and choose menu. as you say, the fa ct and choose menu. as you say, the fact that it has not been done before, well, we have had some roles previously who were to do a little bit from public life, but they did tend largely to disappear. i do not think that will happen with this couple, they are too high profile and want to be on the front foot and are committed to the things that they want to do. but questions will arise not least because they are still going to be partly supported by the finances of the royal family through the duchy of cornwall and their properties like frogmore cottage and other things. so there isa cottage and other things. so there is a bit ofa cottage and other things. so there is a bit of a balance sheet and they must tread carefully not to appear
7:42 am
to be just picking the bits of the jobs that suits them and spending the rest of it somewhere far outside of the uk. that is what i think is being currently negotiated and it can only happen properly if everyone gets into a better frame of mind about it. anne mcelvoy, thank you. the conversation has only really just begun but the queen, according to the newspapers, one set signed and sealed within the next few days. tricky. michelle and maya, thank you for coming in. lovely to hear that personal experience. and thank you for your letters. —— once it signed and sealed. —— wants it signed and sealed. investigators in kyiv say iran is offering full cooperation in establishing the facts behind wednesday‘s deadly crash of a ukrainian plane. they‘ve been given access to the flight recorders, the aircraft‘s fragments and the crash site. earlier, iran admitted the plane was shot down due to "human error"
7:43 am
after it had flown close to a military base. iran‘s foreign minister said the mistake occured because of "crisis caused by us adventurism‘" soraya lennie is a middle east correspondent based in melbourne and joins us now. good morning to you. so, quite a turnaround in statements that we have heard from the iranian authorities. firstly, they said categorically there is no way that this could have been shot down. now they have said, yes, but it was unintentional. what do you make of that? there has been a lot of pressure on the iranian government to provide answers to this catastrophe and let‘s not beat around the bush, it is nothing short ofa around the bush, it is nothing short of a catastrophe for the iranian people. this is how they see it, there are —— they are already in a very intense period after the assassination of qasem soleimani. it is one catastrophe after another. i think the government was under enormous pressure to provide a nswe rs , enormous pressure to provide answers, and especially given that in the first hours there were many reports about eyewitnesses, about what they saw, a fireball in the sky. it just what they saw, a fireball in the sky. itjust did not match up to the official version of events as it was
7:44 am
coming out. there has also been talk that the supreme leader was not made aware until friday that this was an accidental shooting down of the plane. he then called the supreme national security council into session, they decided then that the way forward is of course was just transparency. whether or not you believe that version of events, i guess that is up to the individual. and what is so important here is that the iranian president has apologised on twitter and said, look, profound regrets, apologies and condolences to our people and the families of the victims and to other affected nations. but at the same time says it was caused by us adventurism that led to disaster. so squarely leaving the blame at the door of the americans. yes, and this is exactly how the iranian authorities and the iranian government, even though they have
7:45 am
admitted the iranian revolutionary guards, one of the bases, shot down this plane accidentally, they are still trying to counter and bring in the united states to share some of that blame. it is a fact that this has not happened in isolation and there is historic precedent to stop there is historic precedent to stop the us shot down an iranian passenger jet the us shot down an iranian passengerjet in 1988. the 655, killing over 200 people. so this is very similar. there are parallels, of course. there are questions about the competency of the iranian defence force in terms of how do you accidentally shoot down a civilian airliner, flying right near iran‘s main international airport on a very well used flight route? and what hope is there without any real a nswe rs hope is there without any real answers or evidence will be uncovered? answers or evidence will be uncovered ? because we answers or evidence will be uncovered? because we havejust answers or evidence will be uncovered? because we have just been looking at pictures of the crash site and already very heavy machinery is moving into clear that.
7:46 am
a lot of criticism and speculation that any real answers or evidence will have been destroyed in that clear up operation. well, what aviation investigators will do is of course to look at the remnants of the plane. we know that many of the pieces were taken away. ostensibly, they have been taking soma for safekeeping. the iranians have invited in canada, experts from boeing, ukraine, international aviation investigators as well. so i do not see how they are going to further obscure what has happened here, and they have also nowjust admitted that they have accidentally shot down this aircraft to stop i think the one thing to look for is all of the statements point to human error. in fact, thejudiciary has asked the armed forces to expedite the investigation to prosecute those responsible. and i think a lot of the language is pointing to the fact
7:47 am
that the people who will be squarely blame for this will be the soldiers on the ground, the individual who pushed the button, not anyone high up pushed the button, not anyone high up in the chain of command. that is, of course, unless there has been immense public pressure to basically fire the state official or officials. ok, good to speak to you, soraya lennie based in melbourne. thank you for your thoughts. full coverage, of course, will be on bbc news as we get it. the iranians saying now that they have unintentionally shot down that aircraft. here‘s matt with a look at this morning‘s weather. good morning to you. let us look at yesterday evening. let us see some of your weather watcher photographs. the first one of 2012 —— 2020. we
7:48 am
are lucky to see that on display in england and then in scotland. that isa england and then in scotland. that is a picture of the beautiful wolf moon. if you think about the shadow of your hand, it is never quite so sharp around the edges, it is blurry and it was that bit that passed across, so you are very and it was that bit that passed across, so you are very lucky if you saw it, like this weather watcher in oxford. for some there was too much cloud around, like in parts of northern ireland and scotland. that cloud links into the weather today. plenty of cloud. there will be rain for the north of the country. the big feature today is the fact that we have a milder wind and the winds could be pretty strong and because transport issues for heading across the country. gusts of up to 50 or 60 mph. easing through the rest of the day for scotland and northern ireland compared with picking up
7:49 am
across england and wales. it is along the southern edge of this weather front, that is along the southern edge of this weatherfront, that is bringing rain across northern ireland and through much of mainland scotland, towards the likes of shetland. this rain will continue through much of the morning, no real respite. some brea ks morning, no real respite. some breaks for the north—east of scotla nd breaks for the north—east of scotland but through the day you will notice things turn clearer across the north—west. the clearer conditions with some late sunshine will spread southwards, one or two showers. turning wetter across much of the north of england by the end of the north of england by the end of the north of england by the end of the afternoon. turning wetter for the north and west of wales after some patchy rain and drizzle in the morning. rain and drizzle elsewhere through england and wales but drier in other parts of the country. turning one day, some glimpses of sunshine. temperature setting 13 or 14 degrees for the north of england later today by dropping off in the evening. in the north fresher conditions coming back in. this evening it is wintry of higher ground. england and wales seeing the rain spread to the north and east.
7:50 am
splashes of rain for the east in most places. temperature is holding up most places. temperature is holding up to nine, 11 celsius. a milder night but further north it is two or three celsius across much of scotland, there could be some frost and ice in the morning. scotland and northern ireland, a brighter day on sunday. a mixture of sunshine and showers. wintry over the hills. cloudy for england and wales. some outbreaks of rain. there will be a dividing line, even if you have some sunshine later, temperatures approaching double figures in the south, but much colder further north. chilly night on sunday into monday. sunny start to monday for many but it is a day that the conditions will deteriorate as the saviour of low pressure pushes on. that takes away the morning sunshine, bringing heavy rain towards the west, some of which will be torrential, and the other issue, the big issue is that we finish monday afternoon and head towards the evening rush hour. stay tuned to the evening rush hour. stay tuned to the forecast, winds could top even 80 mph in one or two spots. there is
7:51 am
more stormy weather to come later through the rest of next week, back to you, ben and nina. looking like a work from home the! especially on monday! do you happen to be off on monday, matt? yes. let's do some face time! let's do it! do i not get an invite? no, you are working. the time is almost 9:25am. good morning. now for an inspirational story. 20—year—old ambulance driver billy abernethy—hope came up with an idea to help the homeless in bristol. instead of donating cash, he designed an alternative plastic "chip" which can be swapped for food, drink and shelter. sadly, billy was killed in a motorbike accident in thailand in 2018, so didn‘t see his idea become a reality. his family have now launched the billy chip in his memory. john maguire visited bristol to find out how it works.
7:52 am
billy was the most incredible energy. he would light up a room as he walked in and everyone kind of knew the night had started when billy had turned up but he, on the flip side, for a 20—year—old, was also incredibly caring. he was an incredible person and i am so lucky to be able to say that he was my little brother, because nobody else gets the privilege of saying that. an ambulance driver and care worker, he had always tried to help people and a conversation with his father about loose change spawned an idea — one that his family has turned into reality in his name. the billy chip. so this is how it works. the businesses supporting the scheme have a sticker in the window. simply come in. a coffee, please. and a billy chip as well. one of those will cost you £2. you can then hand it to a homeless person. they can bring it back and exchange it for a cup of tea or coffee or a sandwich or whatever. it is a brilliant, simple
7:53 am
but effective idea. we can tell people about billy who never met him but also for his friends, i think it is really important, but for people who never met him, it is to let them know that somebody who, yes, is no longer here, he cared that much about them and actually, there is plenty of people behind the billy forefront that care about you, too. sleeping rough can be cold, dangerous and stressful, with help in short supply. what are people like? do they help you? no, many people do not care. people like the public support, from the public, and i make money. often passers—by feel conflicted about giving money directly to homeless people so this provides an option. this man runs a charity that cooks home—made meals for homeless people and believes the billy chip is an effective way to help. it is the best way for the local businesses to engage the homeless people, which is another issue, they find it difficult and sometimes
7:54 am
they find it disturbing, so this would be a nice way to have that relationship, where they have something to give and in turn, the business can provide them with a hot drink and support and a sandwich. this is part of the reason why this cafe is one of the first to sign up. we like it here and obviously, the homeless community is part of that and we know them and we meet them all the time and we feel for them, we create relationships and to give back to the community makes sense if you are part of the fabric of it. it gives back to you as well. on the back of the chip are the words billy wrote in an impromptu mother‘s day card, "you are fabulous and do not forget it". in death as in life, billy continues to help those most in need. john maguire, bbc news, bristol. we saw billy‘s sister, meg, in that film, and shejoins us now with their mum and dad, sarah and john.
7:55 am
good morning to you all. meg, i might start with you. talk to us about billy. you have had to do much work to get that off of the ground. but tell us about billy firstly. he was incredible, such a kind soul but a typical 20—year—old. he could be naughty, he could be nice. he was a normal kid, but he was so compassionate that people never expected it of him. and through his job and a kind of social responsibility of looking after people through that, that is where this idea stemmed from the first of all for him. it is quite unusual for all for him. it is quite unusual for a lad of that age to take a social conscience to the next level and decide to do something about it. are you surprised? not really, i think i brought the children up to be very compassionate and to be kind. and he was very demonstrative as well and he did not mind, he would kiss or hug you in front of anybody. tells
7:56 am
about the project, john, and how it works. it was something he wanted to do, it was an idea and he met a lot of homeless people as part of his job. but also when was out and about and he would speak to them. this was and he would speak to them. this was an idea that he had to give back. we we re an idea that he had to give back. we were having a normal conversation one night and he said, you do a lot for charity, but you never give money to the homeless.” for charity, but you never give money to the homeless. i said, i know, but there is that issue of are you enabling the habit, are you doing the best thing for that person by giving them money? and i said sometimes it feels uncomfortable with me whether or not that is the right decision. and, as a young person with no restrictions or any sort of boundaries, he just said, why don't theyjust do a token. it could operate like this... i said that was a fantastic idea, you should do that. he said, i will, but lam going should do that. he said, i will, but i am going off to them to scu ba—diving i am going off to them to scuba—diving andl i am going off to them to scuba—diving and i want to go travelling. when i come back i might
7:57 am
put some energy into that. and we we re left put some energy into that. and we were left with the legacy of that idea, which... we went to a paloma faith consort and she was speaking about the concert and that was what triggered the idea, because it sat dormant for about four, five months, and we hadn't really thought about it at all. then that sparked the idea again. and all the stars seem to have aligned, and that has been so to have aligned, and that has been so well received, it has been incredible, totally overwhelming. what do you think billy would make of the fact that you have taken this idea and ran with it? i get a lot of feelings from him. because we were so feelings from him. because we were so close, i can imagine... most of the time he was banging his head on the time he was banging his head on the whole, saying i cannot believe you have actually done this, what have you done ? you have actually done this, what have you done? but it is a really lovely feeling. this probably would not have happened in other ways. the
7:58 am
way that we lost billy and a shot that came out of that, it didn't just shake us into going life is too short, but it is one of those things that everybody says, but i think if he were still here, we probably wouldn't have launched the billy chip, but the fact that he is not but we can continue his legacy, it's incredible. i am looking at the back of the chip and we saw it in that news report. it says on it, and this is important for you and you can explain it to me about why, but it says, you are fabulous, and don‘t you ever forget it. says, you are fabulous, and don‘t you everforget it. explain says, you are fabulous, and don‘t you ever forget it. explain the significance of that on the chip? this was ballee's mother's day card just before he died. i always liked handmade cards, nothing fancy. this is what he wrote to me. and on that card, ido is what he wrote to me. and on that card, i do not know if the viewers can see it. have a look at that. you have transposed that onto the chip. you are fabulous and don‘t you forget it. i have had it tattooed on
7:59 am
my bottom. i will keep it forever!” bet that card means the world to you, as does this chip. you are hoping it will extend beyond the south—west. hoping it will extend beyond the south-west. yes, and that saying, it is almost like a gift, the meaning that sits behind that. and speaking to homeless people on the street, mentioning that, the sense of support that they feel from the chip and the words written on it. that is really encouraging for us. we are doing the right thing and it will make a difference to a lot of people's lights. it is such a sensible idea and i hope that it continues to grow. thank you for coming in. this is breakfast. we‘re on bbc one until ten o‘clock this morning, when matt tebbutt takes over in the saturday kitchen. matt, what‘s on the menu for today? it is kelvin fletcher. how are you? very good. what about of the back of

8:02 am
anybody‘s food hell! stay with us, the headlines are coming up. hello, this is breakfast with ben thompson and nina warhurst. coming up before ten, matt will have all the weekend weather. but first a summary of this morning‘s main news. iran has admitted it unintentionally shot down the ukranian plane that crashed near tehran on wednesday. the iranian foreign minister blamed
8:03 am
‘human error‘ saying the plane had been mistaken as a target when it flew close to a sensitive military base. all 176 people on board were killed. iran says responsible parties will be held accountable. talks about the future relationship between the duke and duchess of sussex and the royal family are "progressing well" according to a source close to the couple. officials and royal aides have been holding a series of meetings and phones calls as they draw up proposals for harry and meghan‘s roles once they step down from frontline duties. all sides have expressed a desire for a solution to be found as soon as possible. sir keir starmer has told breakfast that jeremy corbyn‘s leadership was one of the reasons labour lost the election, but not the only reason. the labour leadership candidates have until monday to secure the nominations they need to get to the next stage of the contest. sir keir said brexit and anti—semitism also played a part in the defeat.

he led us through difficult times, he isa he led us through difficult times, he is a friend and colleague and i respect him, thank him for what he has done but we are moving on now which is why we are into a readership campaign. i am lunching my campaign today and going to oldham this morning and then a big eventin oldham this morning and then a big event in manchester and i want to bring that energy and sense of movement to the future which is about uniting the party, being a very effective opposition and forging a path to victory in the next general election. the us state department said it was ‘highly inappropriate‘ for britain to apply for the extradition of an american woman charged in connection with the death of the teenager, harry dunn, who was killed in a road accident in northamptonshire. anne sacoolas — the wife of an american intelligence officer — returned to the us claiming diplomatic immunity following the crash in august. the home office says the matter is now "a decision for the us authorities" but the dunn family spokesperson told breakfast they are certain ms sacoolas will return to the uk to face justice. the northern ireland assembly

8:06 am
eclipsing manchester city‘s tally from two seasons ago by two points. the only thing i can say, if we had thought about any kind of record, we would not have won the number of games we won so far. that is it. very different story for tottenham. no harry kane of course. and while many spurs fans aren‘t holding out much hope they can end liverpool‘s unbeaten run later. jose clearly believes they can. we know how good they are. we can imagine that in this room, probably only two people think we can win. maybe only two. but we believe. we believe, we have to believe.

former england hockey captain, alex danson, suffered long term concussion after hitting her head against a wall in 2018. just as she was on the road to recovery when her sister claire, a triathlete, was paralysed from the waist down after a serious bike accident. in what‘s been a long journey of recovery for both, alex rejoined team gb training this week while claire competes in her first solo 5k wheelchair race this morning. and they both join us now. claire, we know it has been a long road to recovery. this race this morning, it must be a special and poignant moment for you? yes, it is. it is really exciting to be back outside doing what i love doing and ably big milestone for me to be doing it by myself with no one helping me to go along. just remind
8:11 am
us of the accident and what happened and how that recovery has been for your sins leading and how that recovery has been for yoursins leading up and how that recovery has been for your sins leading up to today?” and how that recovery has been for your sins leading up to today? i was out on a training ride, riding my bike, doing a ridge that i used to do most days and unfortunately, i had a collision whilst out riding. i was in intensive care for a few weeks and recovery has been very gradual and slow with spinal injuries, nothing happens very quickly. gradually i‘ve learned to wield myself and got strong in my upper body. now i feel strong enough to do this today. we wish all the best for the race today. alex, what did you make of it because we were just saying there, you‘ve gone a long recovery yourself following a nasty head injury which happened to
8:12 am
be in what appears to be an innocuous incident. you were laughing at a joke and he had a knock on a well. you must have been so shocked when he heard about your sister? it's the kind of news that no family everyone to hear. we rushed to the hospital and it was very touch and go for a while with claire but she's an extraordinary character. today is a huge day for all our family character. today is a huge day for all ourfamily and character. today is a huge day for all our family and bigger than that, for anybody who has suffered a head injury or had a spinal—cord injury, there is life after that and sport has given as both the most mordant —— important. iwas has given as both the most mordant —— important. i was delighted to join where britain hockey team are straight and it couldn't have fallen ona straight and it couldn't have fallen on a more fabulous week for claire to be doing her first race and we are just immensely proud of her.” can imagine it will be a very
8:13 am
special moment watching her compete andi special moment watching her compete and i imagine you have both relied upon each other and helped each other through your recovery processes ? other through your recovery processes? at the start of mine, i was unable to do anything. claire was unable to do anything. claire was by my side and she would get up at 4am in the morning to train so she could be with me during the day. it has been so easy for me to do the same for her. we are very lucky so she is very close to where we live so dearly visits and doing all we can to support her recovery. we can‘t fully understand all the decisions with her injury but we are very close family and whatever is thrown our way, we will make sure that we come out on top. enjoy today and claire, i guess for you as well,
8:14 am
despite the severity of the accident, competing today and ambitions to continue in sport and continue in triathlon as well? certainly, yes. i have no doubt that i will get there. it will take a little bit of time. this is the first step on that newjourney to hopefully para triathlon. being at the venue today is great. they got a jacqueline here as well and i used to compete here so there are people i hear that i know and it is lovely to think that i am part of it again. amazing story from both of you and enjoy today and best of luck in that race today, claire. what inspiring stories, i love it.
8:15 am
the way that sport still enables you, whatever has happened, to be able to showcase what you can do and having that focus and direction has public helps hugely in that recovery. we wish her the best of luck today. journalist and broadcaster tim walker is here to tell us what‘s caught his eye. i heard iheard an i heard an academic the other day saying that in politics across the world, too often voters are being treated very much as consumers who are always right and not citizens who have a duty to inform themselves of what is going on. keeping ourselves informed is however now much harder than it is ever been before because so many original papers are actually lapsing, local journalism is struggling like never before so it is great news that carl hancock who is a former banker is setting up an outfit he is calling
8:16 am
another news network which aims to set up 700 committees across the country where people feel neglected. fundamentally, regional newspapers are struggling because the advertising, classified ads went online so it disappeared straightaway. is he intending to make any money from this or is this a charity venture? no, i think you wa nt to a charity venture? no, i think you want to make money and i think he will be attracting advertising. a lot of the reason why we don‘t look at local journalism is lot of the reason why we don‘t look at localjournalism is that google puts us all. i find it disturbing how many courts there are locally or not now being covered which is not good for democracy. what worries me is the expertise we took for granted, the court reporters, they don‘t seem to exist very often and i fear even with this initiative, the public won‘t be terribly well—paid and well experienced because he is
8:17 am
getting local people in the areas to report and who knows, they might have access to grind. it is a whole new era, have access to grind. it is a whole new era , new have access to grind. it is a whole new era, new information out there and it is difficult for people to sift through. but we as voters, we have to try and keep ourselves informed, we cannot just have to try and keep ourselves informed, we cannotjust go and what the papers tell us. we have to try and geta the papers tell us. we have to try and get a broader range of viewpoints everyday as possible if we are to be informed. not isjust what is on your facebook feed! to something entirely different, trainers that cost a pretty penny but apparently is de rigueur if you are watching —— running a marathon. we can face the embarrassment of having elderly or toddlers running past us. we did not have a children
8:18 am
£50 pair of past us. we did not have a children £50 pairof nikkei past us. we did not have a children £50 pair of nikkei trainers. they give propulsion that comes from their carbon fibre plates that give at least a 4% increase in speed and performance also people are saying is much better. breakfast is ever was on top of this story last october when he had them on a marathon runner and then there was talk of how it was like almost running on trampolines and the share price has gone up 90%. there is a lot of concern about whether or not it is fair if i wearing them and other people aren‘t, should i be allowed to compete. whether you're exercising your body in the same way? a very good point. it takes -- mike it beats taking drugs to do that. we have a story about reining
8:19 am
drums. police spy cameras crashing in wet weather. we have already heard of aircraft drones. now there are so many of them we are in mortal danger, according to this piece, is one of us them hitting us. 16 drones fell from the sky last year. sometimes a power failure, fell from the sky last year. sometimes a powerfailure, simply mechanicalfailure. they sometimes a powerfailure, simply mechanical failure. they have sometimes a powerfailure, simply mechanicalfailure. they have been issues about privacy. i must not drone on about this subject! we tend to think of them as little things but in some cases, they can be huge. they are worth £5,000 a time as they drop out of the sky, is an expensive business. sometimes the regulation, ta kes a business. sometimes the regulation, takes a while to catch up. the weather is next.
8:20 am
good morning. it is very wet for some of you. there are a few breaks in the cloud in north wales at the moment but for most, cloudy today and it has been hinted at, quite mild but also very windy across the country and if you‘re in scotland or northern ireland this morning, very wet too. this is where the main is currently following. northern ireland and good parts of scotland, the venal be persistent into the early afternoons. it will turn wetter across than englund and western wales but most of northern and scotland should brighten up. further south and east you are, cloudy with a puke limb of sunshine. temperatures could hit 14 degrees for a time at lunchtime but overall, temperatures dropping later. a
8:21 am
killer like tonight, there could be frost and ice around. when treat of higher ground. tomorrow morning at around nine to 11 degrees. as we start tomorrow, plenty of cloud in england or wales. parts of northern england, it will eventually cheer up. sunshine in the south, sunshine with showers in scotland and northern ireland. chillier than today, four to 11 celsius. it will turn quite storming next week. ecologists estimate that half a billion animals have been affected by the bushfires in australia, with many creatures left orphaned or without homes. crafting volunteers have been asked to make mittens, pouches and nests which can be used by charities caring for the animals. helen brisbane and her daughter katerina murphy,
8:22 am
were inspired by the work of the animal rescue collective and join us now. just extend how this works. when an animal is injured in a fire, they are burned, dehydrated, hungry, lost, and their injuries are very specific to the animal. they need really specific things to recuperate. when you look at the images, you are currently in the uk so seeing images on tv of places you know very well, some of these awful images, not only of homes being destroyed, but the sheer number of animals that have been killed, it is heartbreaking. it is awful, these are towns that we go to holiday in we drive through them to visit relatives sojust seeing we drive through them to visit relatives so just seeing these towns and animals, it is devastating. these fires are clearly much worse
8:23 am
than normal and much harder to control but we should say that fires are the norm at certain times of the year but the issue is, these are earlier and much more ferocious. viruses and happens every year. we‘re used to live, you would go shopping and you would hear the siren and automatically, every head in the street would turn, you would sniff and if you so far, he would execute your fire plan, sniff and if you so far, he would execute yourfire plan, whether sniff and if you so far, he would execute your fire plan, whether it was to evacuate or go back home. but they usually started round about the beginning of january. these they usually started round about the beginning ofjanuary. these fires started in november and they have not stopped. took us through then the crafting you have been doing. you are literally recreating homes for animals stop i started before i left australia. i am here on holidays. i was making mittens for koala bears. luckily, they think they have enough mittens for the
8:24 am
burned feet. the fabrics they are made of very specific. this is a bat wrap. that would cling here as if it was clinging to its mother and that familiarity helps the recovery and then the flannelette goes around like this and the little head pops out. but they would go through five of these are day so that is a lot for the wildlife carer to have to supply or to have to put in the wash. i was really surprised to note that these things are not available commercially. you got to craft them for the individual creatures but you cannot just buy these for the individual creatures but you cannotjust buy these things? no, you had to go to a shop. people make these every year, even when there is not bushfires because they be kangaroo is get hit by cars and there are general injuries so they are always needed but crafters in
8:25 am
australia that are constantly supplying the light like errors but with something like this, it is catastrophic and they could not keep up catastrophic and they could not keep up with demand. that is where the hold world has come in to help. give usa hold world has come in to help. give us a sense of different animals are being catered for. but other things here? this one is a joint pouch. it has a hole here for a rod and when it hangs on the road just above the ground, little kangaroo jumps it hangs on the road just above the ground, little kangaroojumps in and it hangs as if it is still another‘s pouch. so feels really protected, really safe and very secure during its recovery. it instinct if it knows to jump into the pouch. that is incredible. once it is recovered enough to go under its own steam, it goes through the hole. before that, in public goes in one of these. lot of them are joint kangaroos that
8:26 am
are still in them others pouch. they might not even had a fair yet so it needs to be soft and comforting. they are stuck in a washing basket. it is the cutest thing. how do you knew what to make and how many you need,is knew what to make and how many you need, is there a coordinated response? they are part of a facebook group and they are the ones who supply the white lie centres so they have patterns on their body ones to go and join the group. you can make them according to the specific asians because they are quite strict about the patterns.“ people want to get involved, what did they need to look for? animal rescue craft gilding in any country. really nice to see both, keep up the good work. what an amazing thing today. that‘s all from us for today.
8:27 am
i‘ll be back with rachel tomorrow from six. until then, enjoy your weekend. goodbye.

this is bbc news. the headlines at 10am... iran admits unintentionally shooting down the ukranian airlines passenger plane, killing all 176 people on board, because of human error. the northern ireland assembly will today sit for the first time since the collapse of power—sharing three years ago. keir starmer — the shadow brexit secretary — today launches his leadership campaign in the race to lead the labour party. today he defended anti—austerity policies. sometimes when you lose an election there is a tendency to say that everything must go. that is wrong in my view. in the sport, more var controversy after west ham‘s injury—time
