by—election defeat, but says this is not the time to give up. are you the solution to labour's problems? losing copeland to the conservatives was deeply disappointing, he says, but the party and its policies are needed more than ever. i'm carrying on as leader because i'm determined that we will deliver social justice in this country. we'll be assessing where labour stands after a difficult few days. also tonight... stands after a difficult few days. sir mo farah insists he's a "clean athlete who's never broken the rules" after new allegations involving his coach, alberto salazar. involving his coach, victory in the league cup for manchester united after a late goal. good evening.
the labour leaderjeremy corbyn has said he accepts a share of the responsibility for losing the copeland constituency to the conservatives in thursday's by—election, telling the scottish labour conference it showed the scale of the task facing the party. conference it showed the scale he said he'll remain as leader and that labour must unite to win. critics, though, say the defeat shows labour is failing to appeal to the electorate. shows labour is failing our political correspondent carole walker reports. mr corbyn, do you still think you're the man to rebuild labour? i'm looking forward to my speech. the man to rebuild labour? jeremy corbyn insists he won't give up the struggle. we're campaigning for a just and fair society. the résﬂh—iﬂ—eﬂpelﬂﬂd-i
and of course, i take my share of responsibility for it. we haven't done enough yet to rebuild trust with the people who've been ripped off and sold out for decades and don't always feel that labour represents them. for decades and don't always but now is not the time to retreat, to run away or to give up. labour in scotland is already battling to recover after losing all but one of its mps at the last election. the party's scottish leader echoed mr corbyn‘s call for unity, but had an ominous warning on the problems they must confront. in many respects, what's happening in the north—east of england is what happened in the north—east of to the scottish labour party two years ago. we were the canary down the mine, so to speak, in terms of losing the faith of working—class communities across the country. jeremy corbyn says he has a huge mandate from his party and is clearly a little tired of the repeated questions about his leadership. of the repeated questions i'm carrying on as leader because i'm determined
that we will deliver social justice in this country. you'll definitely be leader in 2020? in this country. i've given you a very, very clear answer — yes! and amongst party delegates, there's little appetite for another leadership contest, despite all the problems. he was elected democratically. despite all the problems. you need to get behind your leader. despite all the problems. he's got a mission to make labour electable in the united kingdom. our next test is the scottish local government elections. i would have liked him to have indicated more how we are to help the country to vote labour again. indicated more how we are to help jeremy corbyn‘s team are making it clear that there'll be no change of leadership and no change of direction either. they will be stepping up their campaigns onjobs, the nhs and tackling inequality. up their campaigns onjobs, but none of that worked in copeland and they're up against a conservative party with policies and a message designed to appeal directly to many of labour's core supporters. carole walker, bbc news, westminster. britain's four—time olympic champion
sir mo farah has insisted he is a "clean athlete who has never broken the rules" after allegations in a leaked report that his coach may have broken rules against boosting athletes‘ performance. alberto salazar has been under investigation since allegations about drugs use at his american training base were made by the bbc‘s panorama programme in 2015. training base were made by the bbc‘s mark daly, who originally broke that, has this report. can there be a one—two for the salazar group? it looks like it as mo farah takes gold for great britain. he's the coach and mastermind behind britain's sir mo farah and his four olympic gold medals. britain's sir mo farah and his four but alberto salazar and his nike oregon project has been under investigation by the us anti—doping agency, or usada, since a bbc panorama programme in 2015 revealed claims of doping and unethical practices. in 2015 revealed claims of doping high—profile us athletes kara goucher and her husband adam
made a series of allegations against their former coach. he's sort of a win at all costs person. it's hurting the sport. at all costs person. today, the first glimpse of usada's findings. an interim report by the agency has been leaked by the russian hacking group fancy bears and passed to the sunday times. the report alleges salazar used banned or unethical methods to boost performance, including infusions of supplements over the legal limit of 50 millilitres, untested and potentially unlawful medical procedures and medications. and the report states that farah‘s alleged use of an infusion in 2014 remains under investigation. alleged use of an infusion in 2014 usada continues to investigate, but serious questions now for uk athletics, who were, according to this leaked report, warned about salazar and his methods by one of their own doctors as far back as 2011.
uk athletics said all of their key medical staff had fully co—operated with usada and the uk's own anti—doping body. alberto salazar strongly denied the allegations, saying "i believe in a clean sport and will never permit doping." he went on to say: and will never permit doping." he called the allegations false and disturbing, desperate and a denial of due process. earlier today, sir mo farah released a statement saying: he said it was clear that he had
done nothing wrong. but questions will persist over fa rah‘s continuing loyalty to a controversial coach the doping authorities seem so determined to pursue. authorities seem so mark daly, bbc news. authorities seem so the new independent reviewer of terrorism laws has warned that britain faces a level of threat not seen since the ira bombings of the 1970s. seen since the ira max hill told the sunday telegraph that plots by islamist extremists to attack uk cities were "an enormous risk." he singled out the issue of british people returning from abroad after fighting for so—called islamic state. tens of thousands of people in south sudan are starting to see food aid arrive in the region where the united nations has declared that famine has taken hold. where the united nations has many of those affected have been facing starvation after trying to escape the country's civil war by seeking refuge in the marshes of the nile. by seeking refuge in the marshes of our africa correspondent, alastair leithead, has travelled to a rebel—held town in unity state, where people have been gathering to receive help.
where people have been they came in their thousands as word spread that help was on its way. most were women and children, hungry, tired and waiting under a burning sun. hungry, tired and waiting they'd fled into the marshlands of the nile to escape the civil war which is destroying the world's youngest country. but now they're desperate, and despite the risks, have come out for help. and despite the risks, this is the heart of the area that has been declared in famine. thousands of people have gathered in the central area to be registered to receive food aid. in the central area to be registered they've come from the marshes and the swamps where they've been hiding from the fighting and where there's no food. and there are thousands more people who can't even reach here, and they desperately need help. who can't even reach here,
each card entitles them to a month of food rations, which will be airdropped in over the next few days. everyone tells a similar story of hunger on the islands, surviving off wild honey and water lilies. people are dying of starvation, she said. that's why we're here, lining up for help. and she talked about how hard the war has been, particularly for old women who can't run to the river fast enough when the fighting comes. run to the river fast enough people loot their possessions, stealing cattle and goats, she said. this is what's left of a medecins sans frontieres clinic, destroyed when government troops briefly took the town in november. and this was the market, now back in rebel hands. leer is the rebel leader's birthplace, which is why many suspect it's being targeted so harshly. the government militia kill and abduct people, he said. they raid and steal cows. and abduct people, he said. they've burned houses and the church. the un needs both sides to agree
to a ceasefire before they can bring aid into contested areas. to a ceasefire before they can bring that lack of access has contributed to the famine. for many months, humanitarian agencies have not been able to make it into this area. agencies have not been able this is the first time that we're doing so, so it's a real issue. that we're doing so, we need people to understand that without safety, without assurance of security for the people in need and for the aid workers, for the people in need we'll be having a catastrophic situation down the line. malnutrition is manageable here, despite the famine. but it's the places that the help can't reach where hunger is taking lives. that the help can't reach alastair leithead, bbc news, in thonyor, south sudan. two and a half years after it was set up by the government, the independent inquiry into child sexual abuse begins its first public hearings tomorrow. into child sexual abuse begins its scope is vast — covering 13 different subject areas. the first to be investigated is the mistreatment of thousands
of british children sent abroad after the second world war. the bbc has been told the inquiry will hear new evidence about abuse that took place, and claims that it was covered up. here's our home affairs correspondent tom symonds. newsreel: they arrive at fremantle from great britain with 931 new migrants for this country. from great britain with 931 i've lived for 60—odd years with this hate. they sent us to a place that was a living hell. we did nothing wrong. that was a living hell. all we did was do as we were told, and suffered immensely for it. they've been called britain's lost children. clifford walsh was nine when he arrived here at fremantle, near perth, one of thousands in care or from poor families, promised a better life in the sunshine. or from poor families, promised he ended up at bindoon, run by the catholic christian brothers, where barefoot children
built their own accommodation and were beaten and sexually abused. built their own accommodation we were 60 miles from perth. we had no parents. we had no relatives. there was nowhere we could go. these brothers, these paedophiles must have felt they were in heaven. australia, britain, the christian brothers have all apologised. the christian brothers but from tomorrow, the uk's public inquiry will begin examining the scale of the abuse, which has brought david hill back to britain to tilbury docks, from where he left 58 years ago. he's a successful public figure in australia, who grew up at the fairbridge farm school and interviewed its former children, who've only relatively recently disclosed sexual abuse. i've put the figure at over 60% of the kids that went to fairbridge that were sexually abused. of the kids that went to fairbridge 60%? of the kids that went to fairbridge 60%. of the kids that went to fairbridge and i think if you look at the conditions that prevail in the other child migrant institutions, i'd be
staggered if the figure institutions, i'd be isn't equally high or even higher in some of the catholic boys' homes in western australia. in some of the catholic boys' homes files in the national archives show that in 1956, british inspectors visited all of the homes. that in 1956, british inspectors there were no mentions of sexual abuse, but there were serious concerns about standards of childcare. officials drew up this blacklist of institutions that should receive no more children. of institutions that should but the files show that the charities and religious organisations running the schemes successfully put pressure on the government to keep them going until the 1970s. fairbridge has become part of the prince's trust, which says the public inquiry will have access to all the charity's archives. will have access to all should this inquiry bother with what's becoming history? it will examine new claims of a cover—up, and that paedophiles selected migrants for emigration. of a cover—up, and that paedophiles many of the lost children are still alive and demanding answers. the greater the evil,
the stronger the conspiracy to keep it a secret and keep it covered up. the stronger the conspiracy to keep so if this inquiry is capable of opening some of that truth, then that's a good thing. of opening some of that truth, tom symonds, bbc news. of opening some of that truth, nokia, once the world's biggest mobile phone brand, has been relaunched with a number of new models. among them is an update of its famous 3310, which sold more than 120 million units worldwide. the new phone won't connect to the internet, but costs around £40, connect to the internet, and has a battery that lasts — on standby — for up to a month. tributes have been paid to the american actor bill paxton, who has died at the age of 61. to the american actor bill paxton, he was best known for his role in the science fiction classic, aliens, and also starred in apollo 13 and twister. he died after complications following an operation. we're live in la for the oscars in a moment, but first,
here's katherine downes with the sport. manchester united have lifted the first trophy of the season — they beat southampton 3—2 at wembley to win the efl cup. our sports correspondent david ornstein reports. in 1976, the same clubs made the same journey with the same expectations. made the same journey then southampton stunned manchester united to win the fa cup. ‘76 all over again! manchester united to win the fa cup. 41 years on, they came back to repeat the feat in the league cup. opposing sides with opposite projects, united, the big spenders, saints, the heavy sellers, joined only in their aim to win. the heavy sellers, but to win often, you need the big decisions to go your way and when this effort by gabbiadini was ruled out for offside, southampton were hard done by. was ruled out for offside, already peeved, they were soon punished, ibrahimovic with the opening blow punished, ibrahimovic
before lingard put united on course for the cup. southampton, though, had other ideas and there was no denying gabbiadini, who struck at half—time. shortly after, the italian swivelling and scoring a sublime second to level the scores. swivelling and scoring a sublime the tables had turned, but there would be one final twist. ibrahimovic towering to secure the trophy, a clinical end to a classic tie. to secure the trophy, so, for southampton it is heartbreak, surely one of the cruellest cup final defeats in many a year. for united, more glory. in many a year. jose mourinho becomes their first manager to win a major trophy in his first season and this one will live long in the memory. meanwhile, in the day's only premier league game, harry kane scored his third hat—trick in nine games, as tottenham thrashed stoke city 4—0 at white hart lane. the win lifts spurs up to second in the table. england are top of the six nations table after a bonus point win over italy at twickenham,
but the 36—15 scoreline doesn't tell the whole story. but the 36—15 scoreline doesn't our sports correspondent joe wilson was watching. england's coach said that their get out ofjail free cards had been used up. that their get out ofjail free first game at home, victory was rescued against the french. then to cardiff, where england won a game that they'd virtually lost. eddiejones wanted to take italy to the cleaners, in monopoly terms, something like that. to the cleaners, in monopoly terms, england barely got started in the first half, this was a kind of congestion charge. in the first half, this was a kind but in the first half, this was a kind there was a fundan this but there was a fundamental issue in this game — who knew the rules? offside, england thought. the referee didn't. let's stop and try to clear it up. well, what happens when italy missed a penalty? it can become a try. half—time, and no hope
italy led 10—5. england to escape again. watch out, danny care saw a glimpse of the line. headdown,— — made it. england finally broke free in the last ten minutes. but after late tries, eddiejones was left to interpret italian tactics. italy we re interpret italian tactics. italy were smart. regulations to their coaching staff and the players. but it wasn't rugby. if i were the bbc, i would be asking the rfu for their money back because you haven't had a by money back because you haven't had a rugby game. the real -- if the ambition was to frustrate england, they certainly achieved that. the home side got the bonus point, but italy certainly made their point. joe wilson, bbc news, at twickenham. and england and ireland are tied at the top of the women's six nations table — after ireland beat france 13—10. and after ireland beat france 13—10. that is all the spor' it's that time of the year, the oscars are upon us. amid the glamour, there's also
plenty of grit in this year's films. and there's expected to be a bit of politics too at tonight's ceremony in los angeles. of politics too at tonight's our arts editor will gompertz is already on the red carpet — limbering up for a big night ahead. is already on the red carpet — will. is already on the red carpet — limbering is already on the red carpet — up, yeah. the starse limbering limbering up, yeah. the stars are limbering up. they are starting to come up the red carpet and make their way into the theatre for tonight's oscars, which could be historic. after last year's controversy, it is possible, that all four winners of the big categories will be non—white. possible but probably not probable, but it is entirely possible that terryjenkins would win the best director oscar for moonlight. if he does, he will become the first black person to win the oscar. if he doesn't, it is likely to be damien chazelle, who will be the youngest person to win the oscar for la la land, and that is before we get onto all the speeches in what is a politically charged atmosphere. it
is going to be an interesting night. there is more than one side to the oscars. yes, there is the frivolous, showbizzy side of things, the over—the—top—ness of the red carpet and the million after party carpet and the million the over—the—top—ness of the red carpet and the million dollar after party carpet and the million with its lavish spread of food. carpet and the million what is the most extraordinary request you've ever had at this party for food? request you've ever had well, i think i had one of our guests, he loved the baked potato with caviar so much that he came into the kitchen and said "where is the caviar?" that he came into the kitchen i showed him the tin. that he came into the kitchen he took his spoon and ate the caviar with the spoon. who was that? the caviar with the spoon. it was brad pitt. the caviar with the spoon. it might be the stars that shine on oscar night, but the craft categories reveal a different side to the business. film—making is at heart a cottage industry, as demonstrated by these two brothers from london, who are against each other in the visual effects category. who are against each other there's four brothers that do special effects, and my sister runs my company. that do special effects, i've got two sons that work for me and two daughters. and then i've got three daughters
that work for me and my son as well. more up—and—coming talent. that work for me and my son as well. we've got the next generation and probably the generation after that sorted out. and probably the generation so you're just going to have corbould oscars for decades? yes, i hope so. corbould oscars for decades? and then there is the serious side. corbould oscars for decades? great films, award—winning films, should tell stories that matter, that reflect their time. should tell stories that matter, i'm very encouraged, because i do think the diversity of the line—up this year reflects the industry i work in and the world i live in. the industry i work in the biggest thing for me is that people back home see this stuff happening to moonlight and they think things are possible, that the ceiling for a kid where i grew up is raising. what you doing in bed with that woman? i'm his wife. with that woman? that's no good. with that woman? this year's oscars feel a little different, more politically charged, more diverse, more connected. but then...
they'll always be in la la land. will gompertz, bbc news, los angeles. and rolling coverage starts in half an hour on the bbc news website. now time for the news where you are. an hour on the bbc news website. hello. this is bbc news. president trump has said he won't be attending this year's white house correspondents dinner, a tradition which celebrates the freedom of the press. mr trump's announcement came in a tweet and was seen as another sign of worsening relations with the mainstream media. only three other leaders have missed the annual event, which began more than a century ago. dr gina yannitell reinhardt is from the department of government at the university of essex. i asked her what sort of message this announcement would send. he's certainly doesn't have to attend, but considering the fact
that all of the presidents have been invited and have attended, apart from really extraordinary circumstances, this is definitely a statement that he doesn't want to have allegiance, alliances with the media. he isn't looking to reconcile. do you think he's unsure of the reception he would get, maybe he doesn't like the thought of appearing front of this crowd.|j think so, the behaviour he has chosen definitely makes it seem like he's being petulant rather than conciliatory. the sort of people who voted for donald trump, they will say to themselves yes, i understand this because the media have been, as they see it, getting at him co nsta ntly. they see it, getting at him constantly. yes, and he has been saying over and over that the media is lying and is full of untruths, so his supporters will support him and think this is the right decision. why have a dinner with people he doesn't trust? indeed. where do you think this business is going from
here? any sign that all that the president's side of things and the media may have some accommodation?” don't see any sign of that personally. when the media comes out with news he doesn't like, he says it isa with news he doesn't like, he says it is a lie. when they come up with sources he simply says that they made them up. he's attacking the very root ofjournalism and journalistic integrity. as long as there is news to report about him thatis there is news to report about him that is unfavourable, it doesn't seem that he's going to play along. does it really matter in the long term because the media is there, some people will believe it, some won't, some will take it as proper journalism. in the end, it doesn't really count, does it? it depends on what you want it to account for. the media'sjob is to what you want it to account for. the media's job is to expose and investigate things that people may not want investigated about themselves. then the ability to do thatis
themselves. then the ability to do that is going to become prized as $0011 that is going to become prized as 50011 as that is going to become prized as soon as the journalists are kicked out of the room and as soon as a court of the country stops believing that it's true. the president has found his own way of communicating, over twitter. standing up at a rally in florida. not short of ways to communicate what he wants. he isn't at all and because of that it seems strange that he is so threatened by the media. it seems to be a very personal thing for him, he takes it personally, he seems to get his feelings hurt and then he simply denigrates and denies anything that the media is saying. what about the prospects here for the weather? time for a look at the weather with jay wynne. a mixed bag of whether earlier today, wet and windy for some, mostly dry for other people. this is glasgow, heavy rain
running down streets. not right for everybody, some breaks in the cloud, some sunshine for a few. thanks for those pictures. today's weather was down to storm ewan, named by the irish met service. mostly clearing to the south east and north and in the north of uk we still have some strong and blustery winds, especially to the north—east of scotland, 60 maybe 70 mph. showers coming in on the south—westerly breeze. the wind keeping temperatures up for most places, most places are not too cold but it will be colder in scotland and northern ireland. cold enough for a few patches of ice in places, maybe a bit slippery first thing in the morning. and early on tomorrow we have showers coming in which will be heavy, some thunder and they will have a mixture of rain, hail, sleet and snow over the higher ground. some sunshine between the showers, the best will be in the east of scotland but it won't do much
for temperatures, a cold day across the board, single figures just about everywhere. 5 degrees in glasgow, eight or nine in london. through monday night into tuesday, low pressure in charge of the weather, keeping things generally unsettled but a cold start to the day in central areas, a widespread frost but bright and breezy. thickening cloud bringing some showers down from the north and west through the day and it will be windy again, temperatures struggling after a cold and frosty start, single figures into the afternoon. tuesday evening, the cloud moving south. then these isobars will move away and we see some high pressure for a time that will bring a settled start for central and eastern parts, maybe some showers in the north. in the south—west, this next area of rain coming in through the day on wednesday. that will get to the london area, north wales, the midlands. beyond that, mostly drive.
