1:38 pm
alive have been found guilty. willem 0osthuizen and theo martins jackson are alleged to have put victor mlotshwa in the coffin accusing him of being a trespasser. they also allegedly threatened to put a snake in with him when he resisted. let's return now to our main story. the police watchdog has said the paedophile ian watkins could have been arrested nearly four years earlier — if officers in south wales had properly investigated numerous tip—offs about him. michael wolkind qc defended watkins' ex—girlfriend, joanne mjadzelics, who had to clear her name when she was accused of sharing watkins' indecent images. mark lobel has been speaking to him. south wales police hasn't had the grace and integrity to apologise to her. they have had to admit their failings yet she remains a marginalfigure. throughout this investigation, the police didn't believejoanne was a credible witness? they had some false information that she had once been sectioned,
1:39 pm
they had some true information she had once been a sex worker. so what, all they have to do was check claims about ian watkins and they never did. and that is the remarkable thing in their so—called investigation. she time after time went to her local police station, offering them to look at her laptop computer, where she had an e—mail from him attaching pictures of an underage child, and they refused to look at it. she provided police with evidence on four different occasions, what difference would it have made if the police had listened to joanne? it would have stopped the danger to young children. it may have made a difference for some months to one child, it's much wider than that. they could have stopped this much earlier. she started complaining in 2008, year after year, after year of her complaining and doing the right thing, police doing nothing and doing the wrong thing. how damaging was
1:40 pm
ignoring her to joanne? to this day she is trolled online. she was once infatuated with him, discovered what he did and persistently reported and even warning them that if anything else happens, it would be on their head and not hers, because she gave them every opportunity to investigate. they weren't interested. the south wales police have said sorry, is that enough? not quite. they have been forced to face up to their own ineptitude, they haven't had the grace or integrity to apologise to her. i wonder why. she was prosecuted because she became noisy in public, she was interviewed on television still talking about a lost opportunity the police had and their inaction. and that made her feel bad that she hadn't been listened to, as if she was asking yourself, could i have done more? actually, she couldn't have done
1:41 pm
more, but they did nothing. and aristocrats found guilty of sending menacing messages to an anti—brexit campaigner has abandoned his appeal against his conviction. the viscount was sentenced to 12 months in prison for suggesting facebook that he would pay people to have the businesswoman. there was a dramatic turnaround of events this morning for rhodri colwyn phillips, the fourth viscount st davids. he had already dispensed, or abandoned an appeal against his conviction. but this morning, was due to make an appeal against his 12 week prison sentence. at the outset of the hearing, her honour, judge deborah taylor, said that having looked at the papers in the case, the court was of the initial view that if the hearing went ahead, that 12 week sentence could be increased.
1:42 pm
rhodri colwyn phillips‘ barrister 0liver brunt qc, asked for some time to advise his client based on that indication from the judge. they had 15 minutes or so, came back into court and oliver brunt advised the court that the appeal would be abandoned. just to remind people about the facts of this case. rhodri colwyn phillips posted some four days after the businesswoman, gina millar, had won a high court ruling against the government over the triggering of article 50 of the lisbon treaty. he posted on facebook, a message which effectively offered a bounty of £5,000 for the first person to accidentally run over and i quote, "this bloody trouble some first—generation immigrant." he also referred to her as a boat jumper. he was convicted in addition to that, for a similar offence where he offered £2000 for someone to carve up a man called arnold sube, he is an immigrant to this country who reportedly had
1:43 pm
turned down a five bedroomed council property for his eight children. his family of eight children. now, having had that sentence initially imposed at westminster magistrates‘ court injuly of this year, this appeal, now having been abandoned, rhodri colwyn phillips will now serve that sentence. he has served some five days of it. he served that initially before being given bail, pending this appeal. he will now serve the rest of that sentence. women who've left the armed forces have told the bbc the government is not doing enough to support them with mental health problems. campaigners say there's a ‘hidden‘ population of ex—service women who are suffering similar problems to male veterans — such as post—traumatic stress, substance misuse and unemployment — but no—one knows how many there are, or where they live. the victoria derbyshire programme has been to see the work of one of the few charities providing support — just for female veterans. i am denise kidger and i served
1:44 pm
22—and—a—half years in the army. it was tough because you were a woman but you had to act like a man and so i find it quite tough outside, mentally, trying to figure out who i am. the ptsd is a weird one because sometimes at first you don't understand, you just think something's you have nightmares, you have flashbacks. i thought the best thing to do was stay in the house and not engage and then i was introduced to forward assist. what we found was the women felt that they weren't represented in the charity sector so it was very male—orientated and and very male—dominated. so we do consultation
1:45 pm
sessions to find out what exactly their needs are. we offer a lot of one—to—one support and we also do female—only activities, as well. it's been left to the charities and i think it's a disgrace that the mod, you know, we are prepared to serve. but when you come back there's nothing there for you. you know, like they tell you you're not capable of doing the job that you absolutely love and then you get discharged and they tell you, but it's ok, you've got these injuries, when you get out you're going to have this compensation. you're going to have this money. you're going to have this support. you got none of it. three years on, no wonder i'm a head case. you're not a head case at all, darling. i served as a dog handler
1:46 pm
in the royal army veterinary corps. i guess you could say it was the front line. my feeling was pretty much what i would call being chewed up and spat out. once they're done with you, they're done with you. do you think female veterans are ignored? not so much ignored. i think we're invisible because we feel like we just have to get on with things and the veteran charities are more open to men. when i've got my camera, that's my coping strategy.
1:47 pm
just for you! i love watching the waves when they go and hit, coming across and just hit the actual pier and that. don't know, just calms me. and it changes all the time. i feel like i've got somebody in an organisation i can chat to sort of thing, if we're having bad days and we support each other and it's genuine. so it has a massive effect. in a moment a summary of the business news this hour but first the headlines on bbc news: the police watchdog has said that the paedophile ian watkins could have been arrested nearly four years earlier if south wales police had investigated numerous tip—offs. passengers have been warned by rail operators to expect delays of the bakkali weekend due to engineering works with roadworks also affecting somejourneys. in the business news.
