use the hashtag victoria live, and if you text, you will be charged at the standard network rate. our top story today — at least 17 people have been shot dead by a gunman at a high school in florida. several other people are in hospital with serious injuries, after the attack at the marjory stoneman douglas school in parkland, near miami. it's the eighteenth shooting at an american school this year. police have named the suspect as 19—year—old nikolas cruz, a former student who had been expelled. this was supposed to be one of the safest communities in the country. in an instant, these students became helpless targets, sheltering in place and fearing for their lives. officials now suggest this was a well—planned plot to maximise the loss of life. just moments before the end of the school day, a former student reportedly pulled the fire alarm at marjory stoneman douglas high school to draw out his unsuspecting victims. there had already been a drill earlier in the day but confused teachers followed procedure and began to exit the building. as soon the fire alarm got hold,
and kids were evacuating, i heard five pops. i was like, "that's not a drill." we never did a drill like that. when we started evacuating back away towards the back, towards the the middle school, i knew it was more than a drill because we've never done that. armed with an ar—is semiautomatic rifle, he began firing outside and then continued inside the school as panic and chaos erupted. police were warning the shooter was still at large, even as emergency workers rushed to treat those wounded. swat teams evacuated distressed students. in a row, some with hands in the air, others clinging to each otherfor support, they frantically rushed to safety. i see you, i see you, i see you! parents, sick with, worry, waited for news. the suspect was arrested without incident an hour later in a neighbouring city. police identified him as nikolas cruz, who had been expelled. he was taken into custody,
i believe, about an hour after he left stoneman douglas, after he committed this horrific, homicidal, detestable act. this is the 18th school shooting in the united states this year. it's a uniquely american epidemic that has only gotten worse. yet this country is more divided than ever on how to solve the problem. the governor of florida, rick scott, said the shooting was pure evil. you're furious. how could this ever happen in this country? how could this happen in this state? this is a state that is focused on keeping all of our children safe. you come to the conclusion this is just absolutely pure evil. this state is not tolerating violence. we have law enforcement that will always show up to defend our safety.
i can't ican‘t imagine i can't imagine the family, wondering if they have lost a family member, they don't know. those that do know, i can't imagine how their lives have been changed. we can cross live now to florida and talk to laura podesta who's in parkland. tell us what you some of the survivors and parents have been saying about how they reacted when they first heard shooting in their school. good morning victoria, from what we have eseen the survivors we re what we have eseen the survivors were just what we have eseen the survivors werejust in shock, what we have eseen the survivors were just in shock, they, what we have eseen the survivors werejust in shock, they, it what we have eseen the survivors were just in shock, they, it was the end of the school day, they know that the suspect pulled the fire alarm in order to get people to leave the school quickly, it was chaos because they didn't know if it was a realfire, then chaos because they didn't know if it was a real fire, then they heard that pop, pop, sound. then some teachers told students to just run, so, we have seen images of students
leaving the school with their arms up, just trying to get to safety as quickly as possible. what are people saying, and obviously it will be part of the investigation, about the possible motivess for this former pupil to do this? motives. well, that is something that investigators are going to be discussing with the suspects today. he is in police custody. they have seen a trail on social media through instagram, they have seen this suspect with a gun, those photos have been taken down, we presume by the family and replaced by messages of asking for sympathy, and apologies by the family, but we know there was a photo of this suspect holding a gun, and some violent messages that investigators are going to be sorting through, over the next days and weeks. and when donald trump, the president says that every child and teacher and anybody who goes to school on a
daily basis deserves to be safe, what do people read into that? in terms of the debate on gun legislation in america? well, i think that the parents of the stu d e nts think that the parents of the students who were involved in this tragedy are going to read into that as the president is hopefully going to be putting his foot down when it comes to gun control. but i think a lot of people would read into that that maybe things need to change in other way, maybe there needs to be more of a focus on mental illness. time will really tell when it comes to how the president's tweets are interpreted. thank you very much. we will have more in the morning. now the rest of the morning news so far. the anc leader, cyril ramaphosa, will be sworn in as south africa's new president later today , following the resignation of jacob zuma. his nine years in office has been marred by allegations of corruption and his own party, the anc had threatened to force him out with a vote of no confidence.
our africa editor, fegal keane, reports. the moment of decision came late, when the former guerrilla fighter at last recognised he could not win. president jacob zuma addressed to the south african nation and faced reality. the anc should never be divided in my name. i have therefore come to the decision to resign as president of the republic with immediate effect. a populist, a crowd pleaser, he appealed to the anc grassroots and, with their backing, became party leader in 2009. even though he already faced serious corruption charges, it was his relationship with this family, the guptas, indian immigrants, that created the public outrage that finally forced the anc to act. the guptas are accused of using their connections with the president to acquire state
enterprises and assets worth millions of pounds. so powerful, it is alleged, they could hire and fire cabinet ministers. by the end of this dramatic day, jacob zuma seemed friendless and politically isolated. resigning before he could be humiliated in parliament. fergal keane, bbc news. zimbabwe's main opposition leader and former prime minister morgan tsvangirai has died. he was 65 and had cancer. he founded the movement for democratic change, and his career was marked by a long political struggle against former president robert mugabe. he had been beaten and imprisoned numerous times. the consumption of highly—processed foods, including cakes, chicken nuggets and mass—produced bread is linked to the risk of cancer, according to researchers in france. the study of more than one hundred thousand people is published in the british medicaljournal. experts have expressed caution, but continue to advise eating a health balanced diet.
a healthy balanced diet. the government has publicly blamed russian military intelligence for a cyber attack last year, which affected businesses around the world. the defence secretary, gavin williamson, said russia was "ripping up the rule book by undermining democracy and weaponising information". russia has denied responsibility for the attack. sinn fein is expected to outline its next move today following the collapse of negotiations to restore power—sharing at stormont. talks ended yesterday when the democratic unionist party said there was no prospect of a deal. both parties have been locked in negotiations for 13 months. 0xfam has said it sacked its country director in haiti last yearfor mismanagement. the charity said damien berrendorf had faced allegations of inappropriate behaviour, but it said his dismissal was not related to sexual misconduct, or the scandal in 2011 involving aid workers in haiti paying local women for sex.
the consumers' association, "which", says faulty household appliances are causing about 60 fires every week in the uk. it says a third of fires are started by washing machines and tumble dryers. "which" has written to ministers, giving them 90 days to draw up a plan to address the issue. dubious financial advisors exploited former steel workers in a pensions mis—selling scandal according to mps. the work and pensions select committee says it cost the people involved thousands of pounds, and that the financial conduct authority did too little to protect them after the closure of the british steel pension scheme. more than a thousand driving bans were issued in 2017 to children who were not legally old enough to be behind the wheel of a car. some youngsters, aged 12 were included in the ban, and the figure has risen by almost 50 %, over the past four years. the statistics were given to the bbc under the freedom of information act. the rac describe the numbers as "the tip of the iceberg". differences in life expectancy
between the richest and poorest neighbourhoods have widened according to a new report. the longevity science panel found that, a boy born in one of the most affluent areas such as st albans will outlive one born in one of the poorest such as blackpool by nearly eight and a half years. it's very unfair in our society that the poor, particularly among the elderly, are already quite disadvantaged in terms of income and all kinds of other social and economic factors. and they're also more likely than their richer counterparts to die early. that's a summary of the latest bbc news — more at 9.30. let's get some sport, with hugh. the wimbledon lots of debate about —— winter the wimbledon lots of debate about —— winter olympics, lots of debate about the suits the gb were wearing in the skeleton. we have had it with
swims suit ands and cycle wheels. the suits for skeleton have been causing a stir because of how well the sliders have been doing in the training runs ahead of competition. questions have been asked, complaints made forcing the sports governing body to confirm they are in fact legal. they have special drag resistant ridges on these suit, the suggestion being made now it is all a bit of mind games from the other teams trying to unsettle those in the british team. the men's competition started today, tom parsons is currently out for, within touching distance of a medal. he is just 3 hundredths of a second from the bronze medal after two runs of the bronze medal after two runs of the four he will have in total. he saysin the four he will have in total. he says in the meantime between the two final runs tomorrow he will chill out and read a book! few mistakes on the first run. probably a bit of
race tension, just ended up overdriving a couple of bits and a bit off line, it is what it is, i am still in the mix so i'll take that. the other thing so far on day six the curling continues, so far today one win for the men, one defeat for the women. is and after the bad weather some skiing action. a host of postponement because of the weather in south korea, only one event had taken place in south korea, only one event had ta ken place before in south korea, only one event had taken place before today, and it eventually was the men's down hill, that has been postponed, got under way, norway's skier becoming the old est way, norway's skier becoming the oldest alpine skiing champion at the age of 35. his team—mate won silver with switzerland's reigning world champion taking bronze. he was disappointed with the sparse crowd at the alpine centre for the race. the women's giant slalom a nail you will hear a lot, mikaela shiffrin
w011 will hear a lot, mikaela shiffrin won what she hopes will be a slope load of golds. she did more than enough to win. she is back in the slalom which she won in sochi four yea rs slalom which she won in sochi four years ago tomorrow. man city had the record of the biggest away win in the champions league for 2h hours after their win on tuesday. last night liverpool won 5-0 at on tuesday. last night liverpool won 5—0 at porto. saadi and money became the fourth liverpool player in history to score a hat—trick —— mane became the fourth liverpool player. an incredible kit. they have scored an incredible 2a goals. usually it is there to sell them, but i would suggest, they should keep wearing it. the other much predicted to be the try of the round, real madrid
against psg, first leg, madrid came from behind thanks in part to the goalfrom from behind thanks in part to the goal from cristiano ronaldo, from behind thanks in part to the goalfrom cristiano ronaldo, his 100th of the club, he scored another from his knee, and psg very much relying on the two players that cost £350 million plus to get them back into it in the second leg. a brilliant game. it will be a brilliant game. it will be a brilliant second leg no doubt. thank you very much. good morning. back to the top story. just seven weeks into 2018 and america has witnessed its 18th school shooting this year — the eighth in which school children have been killed or injured. this time it's a community in florida, recently named one of the safest in the country, which has seen another mass shooting. at least 17 people have been killed after a gunman opened fire with a rifle at marjory stoneman douglas high school.
police and swat teams swarmed the campus and began evacuating terrified students from the school, about an hour north of miami, as parents and ambulances gathered on the scene. the footage shows students cowering as gunshots ring out. in the panic, hundreds of students took shelter in classrooms and cupboards while emergency services methodically searched the school campus. nikolas cruz, a 19—year—old former pupil who had been expelled from the school, has been arrested. he is in custody. police say the shooting has devastated the community. we have a shooter in custody. he was taken into custody, i believe, about an hour after he left stoneman douglas, after he committed this horrific homicidal, detestable act. the fbi and our crime scene people will begin processing this horrific scene
as soon as the buildings are cleared. stu d e nts students and parents have been describing what they saw. that is not a drill, we have never done a drill like that. we started evacuating towards the back, the middle school, i knew it was more than a drill, we had never done that. we had to wait. we kept hearing shooting, we were not sure if it was fireworks, shooting, then it was on the news and we found out what was going on. we literallyjust came from there, picking up kids along the way, a lot of really distraught, as you can imagine. just terrifying. terrifying for the pa rents of terrifying. terrifying for the parents of the kids, very emotional. the governor of florida, rick scott, vowed to do everything in his power to ensure children were safe at school. you're furious. how could this ever happen in this country?
how could this happen in this state? this is a state that is focused on keeping all of our children safe. you come to the conclusion this is just absolutely pure evil. this state is not tolerating violence. we have law enforcement that will always show up to defend our safety. the shooting will reignite the debate around tighter gun control in the us. florida is now the scene of one of the deadliest us school shootings since the 2012 attack at the sandy hook elementary school in connecticut where 20 children and six staff members were killed. chris murphy is the democratic senator for connecticut. he's made a passionate plea for action to be taken to prevent school shootings. this happens nowhere else other than the united states of america. this
epidemic of mass slaughter, this is scourge of school shootings. it happens here not because of coincidence, not because of bad luck, but it is a consequence of our inaction. we are responsible. for a level of mass atrocity that happens in this country with zero parallel anywhere else. as a parent, it scares me to death that this body does not take seriously the safety of my children. it seems like a lot of my children. it seems like a lot of pa rents of my children. it seems like a lot of parents in south florida will be asking that same question later today. we pray for the families, for the victim ‘s. we hope for the best.
president trump treated his condolences, saying no child, teacher, anyone is, they should never feel unsafe in an american school. it is not yet clear if he is considering any change to a gun legislation. we will get reaction from the scene and the latest through the morning of course. next today... the parents of a 21—year—old who died after taking illegal weight—loss pills are warning others not to take them. beth shipsey died in february last year after taking dnp tablets, after an overwhelmed hospital department failed to spot the potentially fatal overdose. an inquest which finished yesterday concluded her care at the worcestshire royal hospital was significantly sub—standard, there were significant failings in her care, but evidence suggests she would still have died. the coroner also said that he was going to write to the government calling for the substance dnp to be banned. dnp is an industrial chemical,
it's highly toxic and not intended for human consumption. it's sold illegally in diet pills as a fat—burning substance. users experience a metabolism boost, leading to weight loss, but taking even a few tablets can be fatal. we can talk to beth shipsey‘s parents, carole and doug, in their first bbc interview. good morning to you. how do you respond to the conclusion of the coroner? we do not agree with his opinion. we felt that the evidence heard in the inquest, the five inquest, it does not reflect fully his opinion. how do you react, doug? the verdict of suicide, beth did not intend to take her own life, we feel. it was a miscalculation. a
huge mistake. another cry for help. she had taken overdoses before. equally surprised for help. 14 before, is that right? that is right, obviously a bit of a nightmare for everyone concerned, especially us as parents. so we are disappointed that the verdict was delivered as suicide when there is a lot of evidence to suggest that it was not the case, no suicide note, her social media messages that beth had left that would indicate... but she meant to be found and taken to hospital and treated. the coroner did highlight significant failings in her care at the worcestershire royal hospital, staff failed to carry out checks on the drugs she had taken, the department were not
familiar with the dnp drug and its effects, they did not recognise watching was experiencing was a fatal overdose, they were clearly overwhelmed, evidence from nurses saying it was one of the most challenging shifts they had been on, yet the coroner said he still does not think she would have survived, hence him finding she had taken her own life. how do you feel towards the hospital? the fact is, her blood level of dnp following her death is the lowest recorded worldwide and people have survived with a higher level that have had supportive care and beth had no care in the form and and beth had no care in the form and a half hours she was there until she had a cardiac arrest. -- the for and a half hours. the hospital say, we are very sorry for the shortcomings in her care, and they talk about the series of improvements they have
made since. i want to talk to you about dnp, i have been looking on the nhs website, it makes it clear it is illegal to sell it as a weight loss d rug it is illegal to sell it as a weight loss drug and i wonder what you think the government should do now about this substance. the food standards agency crime prevention unit have been doing their best to close down websites and tackle anybody selling this illegally in the uk. much of it comes from overseas. the fsa's hands are tied in what they can do, relying on authorities in other countries. the fa ct authorities in other countries. the fact is, you can buy this today on the internet if you look hard enough. that is not acceptable. we need the substance itself to be made less or non—accessible to unscrupulous people by either banning the actual substance itself or putting license controls over it and make it much more difficult or
hopefully impossible for people to get their hands on it, other than industrial uses. when you discovered beth had been taking these, what did you think? we were not aware until the day before her death of the potency and toxicity of the drug. she had mentioned a few weeks before she had bought some diet pills but she had bought some diet pills but she was no longer taking them and that that point we had no reason to believe that they were anything other than herbal diet pills that people can buy from health shops. what have you learnt about the substance in the diet pills since? shocking how lethal and there is no safe dose. people must not be complacent. we believe bethany did not take 30 pills because of the low blood level and also we know she did not take that amount, we do not people do think there is a safe
therapeutic dose, it is illegal and dangerous. what would you say, doug to anyone watching who might be tempted to try something like this? asi tempted to try something like this? as i said in the introduction, it increases metabolism leading to weight loss, but it is a highly toxic substance. the people usually attracted to take such substances as this, girls or young woman with body image issues or body—builders, again, body image issues, so any pa re nt again, body image issues, so any parent or partners or anyone surrounding these people, be vigilant. do not buy such diet pills over the internet. be aware, intervene, be proactive. because an envelope coming through the door with pills in it could be a killer, as it turned out to be in the case
for beth and others before. and it was exactly a year ago your daughter died. yes, this evening will be the first anniversary. how do you mark that? how do you cope with that? how do you remember her? this evening we will spend our time with immediate family and... we will be lighting a candle at the time of death. the difficulty is we are starting to relive what beth was doing that day because a year ago today she was still alive and the what ifs, could we... all of the questions going through powerhead has each minute passes through the day. tonight will be particularly difficult when it comes to the time we know she arrested —— going through powerhead. what do you want her legacy to be?
we want the legacy to be the banning or control of the substance so no one else dies from it. unfortunately, we are where someone already has. also, the hospitals, they are overwhelmed, so busy, they just did not have the time to apply what they would normally in treatment for beth that night. the accident and emergency departments need more funding. it is u na cce pta ble need more funding. it is unacceptable in a first world country to have third world circumstances in the a&e departments. thank you very much for talking to us. we appreciate how difficult it was for you and we appreciate your time as well. coming up... it many not come as a surprise that scientists have found a link between highly—processed foods and cancer rates,
but how seriously should we take this latest study? and we'll catch up with team gb bobsleigher mica mcneil who has sent us her latest video diary from the winter olympics. time for the latest news. here's annita mcveigh. the bbc news headlines this morning. at least 17 people have been shot dead by a gunman at a high school in florida. 0thers dead by a gunman at a high school in florida. others are in hospital with serious injuries following the attack near michael schumacher my. it is the 18th shooting at an american school this year. police have named the suspect at 19—year—old nikolas cruz, a former student who had been expelled. it was the end of school day, they know that the suspect pulled the fire alarm to get people to leave the school quickly, so it was a lot of chaos because they didn't know if it was a real fire or not. all of a sudden they heard that pop, pop, pop
sound. some teachers told students to run, so we have seen images leaving the school with their arms up, trying to get to safety as quickly as possible. the anc leader, cyril ramaphosa, will be sworn in as south africa's new president later today, following the resignation of jacob zuma. mr zuma's time in office has been marred by allegations of corruption, and his own party, the anc had threatened to force him out with a vote of no confidence. in a televised statement he said he was quitting with immediate effect but said he disagreed with his party's decision. the consumption of highly—processed foods, including cakes, chicken nuggets and mass—produced bread is linked to the risk of cancer, according to researchers in france. the study of more than one hundred thousand people is published in the british medicaljournal. experts have expressed caution, but continue to advise eating a healthy balanced diet. the government has publicly blamed russian military intelligence for a cyber attack last year,
which affected businesses around the world. the defence secretary, gavin williamson, said russia was "ripping up the rule book by undermining democracy and weaponising information". russia has denied responsibility for the attack. sinn fein is expected to outline its next move today following the collapse of negotiations to restore power—sharing at stormont. talks ended yesterday when the democratic unionist party said there was no prospect of a deal. both parties have been locked in negotiations for 13 months. that's a summary of the latest bbc news. to leave the school quickly, so it was a lot of chaos because they didn't know if it was a real fire or not. all of a sudden they heard that p0p: p0p: not. all of a sudden they heard that p0p, p0p, p0p not. all of a sudden they heard that pop, pep, pop sound. not. all of a sudden they heard that pop, pop, pop sound. some teachers told students to run, so we have seen images leaving the school with their arms seen images leaving the school with theirarms up, seen images leaving the school with their arms up, trying to get to safety as quickly as possible. hugh is back with the latest sport. the british skeleton slide serb dom parsons is in the medal hunt after two of his four runs, he is 3 hundredth of a second outside the bronze medal position with his two final runs coming up tomorrow. elsewhere team gb's men's curlers

will be sworn in today. 0ur correspondent pumza fihlani is in johannesberg. in the end, he, mine he fought and fought and fought, didn't he, but in the end he did do it? he certainly did, and he really left that right down to the wire, victoria, with like an hourto down to the wire, victoria, with like an hour to go, before the deadline of midnight. he tendered his resignation, we have received is word a few moments ago that he has handed officially his letter to the speaker of parliament in cape town, so it is official now, he is no longer president of south africa, which then begins the process for the african national congress as you said, there to table a sitting that will elect the new president and
cyril ramaphosa ises poised to the man to take over from him. that is if opposition parties are also agreed on the anc‘s preferred candidate. how will cyril ramaphosa be different? he certainly has been more vocal, especially in the last few months, in the run upjust more vocal, especially in the last few months, in the run up just after his election, as party president. he has been very vocal about reclaiming south africa's dignity in the world, but also, reclaiming the country back from people he says have used the close relationships with the president and people in power to loot the state. he has promised to stamp out corruption, he has promised to create an environment thatis promised to create an environment that is favourable for investment. there has been fears here, for a few yea rs, there has been fears here, for a few years, that jacob zuma's there has been fears here, for a few years, thatjacob zuma's government was uncertain and that threatened investment here, he has promised to stabilise things but also to find a which of reigniting the economy that it creates jobs for young people
here, so it is a very big order he needs to fulfil, but south africa's —— south africans are at a point where they want somebody who is going to deliver. they have seen what democracy can bring when people come together. so it is a big task he had ahead of them. he they are not going to take him as face value. thank you. we already know that processed foods such as cakes, crisps and ready meals often have high levels of sugar, study was conducted on 150,000 french adults and we measured their dietary consumption and the study was about the association between the ultra processed food consumption and the risk of developing cancer, what we observed here, was that when
people increased their share of ultra processed food in the diet, a 10% increased we observered is an 1196 10% increased we observered is an 11% risk and a 12% risk in breast cancer. but just how significant is this news — and should we change our life styles? here to tell us a bit more is cancer research's lead uk health expert sarah williams. the kind of ultra processed foods we are talking about include what?m isa are talking about include what?m is a massive list. so crisp, packaged sweets, snack, mass produced breads and cakes but not ca kes produced breads and cakes but not cakes that are made for example at home and bakery, meatballs, nugget, anything that is high in fat, salt, sugar it is really very broad. anything that is high in fat, salt, sugar it is really very broadm anything that is high in fat, salt, sugar it is really very broad. it is to do with the high levels of 2359, salt and sugar or could it be be to
do with additives. they say they don't know, they are not creating a cause there, they are just saying we see this, we are suggesting there is a link, we are eat morgue of these foods and that could mean that over time there will be more cancer, so the figure they have come up with saying at the minute they think the people they studied ate about 18% of their diet, was made of this ultra processed food, they are saying we are increasing that, if we increase it by 10%, they think that that will cause another nine cancer for every 100,000 people a year. how big is this study. there are some who are expressing caution about it? this study. there are some who are expressing caution about mm this study. there are some who are expressing caution about it? it is a large study. it is 105,000 people. it tracked them five years but it is ongoing, the researches admit there are things they haven't managed to ta ke are things they haven't managed to take into account. that i have tried to weigh their data against thing like people smoking, whether or not people exercise, whether they have high calorie diets overall or will
if they take the pill. they can't exclude that. then there is the thing about how broad that definition of ultra processed food is. so, the thing that it doesn't for example include artisan breads, so there are... who what is an artisan bread? anything made in a posh bakery or at home. that is all right? they aren't included in this study. even though it's a large study. even though it's a large study the researchers saying more needs to be done to see what the cause is here. and that is a really key point, is it not, because the people who experienced higher rates of cancer could be living unhealthy lifestyles any away, could be smoker, all sorts of things could be going on. on. the study noticed and the researchers mentioned this that the researchers mentioned this that the people who were eating the most ultra processed is foods tended to have unhealthy lifestyleses in other way, being more likely to be smokers and less like will he to be physically active. this is a
different way of locking at diet and cancer, we tend to look at nutrients or attives and take a bottom up approach. this is top down, to that is good because people heat a whole diet, on the other hand as we have said the limitation is we can't tell what within this massive bucket of ultra processed foods could be causing a problem and whether that is down to nutrients or weight gain or if will is something else. it is a key piece of initial research we can build on. sure, 0k. but i mean, in the future, with more research, they might be able to point to a particular additive or the way you know, a cop pound is made when they are doing the cooking process. “— made when they are doing the cooking process. —— compound. made when they are doing the cooking process. -- compound. it is possible that could happen. that would be useful information, particularly so people can be aware of what they are doing, but to inform how ourfood is made, we do buy a lot of processed food, i think it is in some ways pa rt food, i think it is in some ways part of modern life, we are busy,
one of the key things in this area is reform lacing of products so we know with things like the sugar levy coming in with fizzy drink, that has been seen to have an effect in terms of manufacturers reducing sugar, if we can find other things within food, sugar or chemicals that can be reduced so there is less than in the first place. should people cut out ultra process food from their diet? 0n the basis of this study i think thatis 0n the basis of this study i think that is going a bit too far, on the other hand, we do know as we have said things like crisps and chips and cake, we know they are not things to be good to be eating a lot the time. it is about cutting down, there are lots of other good reason, we know they increase the risk of weight gain and we know obesity loads to cancer and other serbses you diseases. is the being overweight, is that more of a risks for developing cancer than what we can take from this study?” for developing cancer than what we can take from this study? i would be
more concerned is personally from ultra processed foods via weight rather than a accuse direct link. what is the difference between ultra processed food and processed food? people want to know, i am confused, tell me what i shouldn't eat, what i should eat. it is a tricky one, this study basically divided people's diets into four buckets and it did that based on a previous piece of research, the buckets go from fresh foods, things like fresh fruit and veg, frozen fruit and veg as well. right through to ma processed foods, it is defined based should be much sort of interference has been happening in the foods before they get on your plate. but it is a broad definition and as we have mentioned there are some things that seem a little bit strange looking at it from a public point of view, like what type of bread is ok, but it is more to do with how it has been divided up. i won't put emphasis on the specific foods. it is a big
group, and it is not to say those foods particularly are especially worrying or dangerous to people. but you would say wouldn't you, just exercise more, and eat more fruit and veg. more fruit and veg, more fibre, less red processed meat, cut down on calories. one feet this people want the try living on a healthy diet on a low income. i know you hear that a lot it is a huge problem, there is is a real limit as to what people themselves can do in terms of healthy diet and managing their weight. because simply we can only buy what is in the shop, we can't control what is marketed to us. as well as people have the information and the advice to make healthy choices where they can, this is why it is important that industry play a role in reform lacing, and the government really step up and play a role as well. so the sugar levy but what cancer research would like to see is further restrictions onjunk food like to see is further restrictions on junk food marketing. so we would
be calling on the government to introduce a watershed to reduce the amount of advertising children are see, we know it leads them to consume more of these foods. is thank you very much. we'll hear some harrowing accounts from children living in war zones, which tragically has increased by more than three quarters over the past 30 years. we will hear what life is like for some of these children before 10.00. it's day six of the winter olympics in south korea. so far team so farteam gb so far team gb have yet to feature on the podium. there is a chance who will get one tomorrow. over the duration of the games, team gb mica mcneill, a bobsleigh, has been keeping a video diary for us of her experience. here's her latest extract.
electronic music. hi, guys. it's mica mcneill, team gb bobsleigh pilot out here in south korea at the pyeongchang 2018 winter olympic games. we've now been here for two weeks and official training is coming up really, really soon, which we are so excited for. we're actually in seoul at the moment. but i'll give you a little recap of how our two weeks have been. we got here in seoul at the national sport university to get some training done, get overjet lag and whatnot, before we went into the olympic village. when we got there, that was an absolutely incredible, incredible feeling. it was a two—hour bus journey across the country and then we arrived and you walk
through and you see all the flags and all the other nations. we had great fun while we were there. we have the flag raising ceremony, we had the team gb reception, where we got to dress up in our fancy suits and meet her royal highness princess anne. and we had the opening ceremony, which was amazing. we didn't actually stay there for the whole time. we went and stayed in the warm tent and got to walk out behind the flag, which was an absolute honour and such a proud moment for any athlete, but then we actually went straight on the bus and went home, because we didn't want to get cold and tired as we had training the next day and we are still preparing. but it wasn't all fun in the village. we had some 5am wake—up calls to go sliding, which was actually my first time down the olympic track. i'd never driven it before. so i've had four runs now. i'm getting to grips with it. i've got some fine tuning to do, but it's such a fun track and i absolutely, absolutely loved it. so the sled got there all safe.
but our village is amazing, and our block, team gb have made it so homely and done a greatjob. the foods fantastic. so you might be wondering why we're back in seoul. there's a couple of viruses going around the village, which we don't want to catch, and we wanted to just take ourselves away from that environment of everything being 100 mph all the time and get some serious sessions put down. we're a week out from our competition now and we're here in seoul with a gym to ourselves and a running track to ourselves. we're not fighting 1000 athletes for equipment in the village. but i will say, i'm so, so excited to get back to the village later on today. 0ur bus leaves at four from here so that's a wrap for our holding camp and i'm absolutely buzzing for the official training to start on the 17th and for our competition on the 20th and 21st.
and we'll continue to follow her story over the next week or so. the number of children living in a war zone has increased by more than three quarters in the past three decades. more than 350 million kids now live in areas of conflict — that's over a third of a billion children, or around six times the population of the uk. and it's up from around 200 million in the early 1990s. let's hear some of the experiences of children from warzones around the world. "they hit me in the face with a gun, kicked me in my chest and stamped on my arms and legs. then i was raped." another said... another child... those are just three stories from three different children caught
up in conflict zones around the world. the new report from save the children out today suggests kids are being used as suicide bombers, and that schools and hospitals are being targeted by cluster bombs. let's look at the experience of one persecuted minority. since august, 2017, more than half a million rohingya muslims have fled myanmar for neighbouring bangladesh. two months ago two armed men stormed into our house. i was there with my two daughters. 0ne into our house. i was there with my two daughters. one is 16 and the other is 12. they beat and kicked me and threw me out of my house and they raped both of my daughters. even the youngest one. she has not even reached puberty yet. when they we re even reached puberty yet. when they were finished, they came out of the house and started shooting at people. i saw them killed two men, a
bullet missed me by a few inches. i ran back into the house. i took my daughters by their hands and we ran away as fast as we could. my daughters were in a state of shock. it took us two days to get to bangladesh. they are still suffering. 0ne bangladesh. they are still suffering. one of them feels co nsta ntly suffering. one of them feels constantly in and weak and the other one has a domino and back pain. they feel really a shame talking about what happened and they are worried no one will want to marry them when they are older than now they have been raped. with us is george graham from save the children, doaa kutbi who is a doctor in yemen for the international medical corps, and nikita malik, who researches the way children are used in conflict for the henry jackson society, which is a think tank that, according to its website, works to combat extremism, to advance democracy and real human rights. thank you all for talking to us. i
will start in yemen with doaa, what is it like for parents trying to bring up children in parts of yemen? u nfortu nately, bring up children in parts of yemen? unfortunately, my country is suffering a lot nowadays, especially the health system. in 2018... 18.8 million that the dog the population... as a mother of two kids, both of them need medical help, as a doctor, as a mother, a regular, monthly income. but what about those who do not? even if they tried their best, nowadays, in my
country, my country is now reporting one of the top countries with a crisis in the world. nowadays, we are in yemen suffering through a lot of outbreaks, endemic with critical diseases like malaria, polio, and now a diphtheria outbreak, cholera outbreak, as a mother, i'm afraid to let my children go out from home. and visitors, i'm suspicious sometimes, but what can i do? we will try. as a humanitarian worker, i try my best to change some...” will bring in george, if i may. thank you, doaa. george from save the children who have done the report. we can clearly hear the difficulties of a mum, who is a doctor, trying to bring up children
ina doctor, trying to bring up children in a conflict zone. can you give us exa m ples of in a conflict zone. can you give us examples of the way children are affected and used in conflict zones? certainly. 0ne affected and used in conflict zones? certainly. one of the most depressing findings in this very depressing findings in this very depressing report is the number of children killed and maimed has gone up children killed and maimed has gone up three times its 2010 according to un reports, kids being injured, lifelong disabilities. part of the reason is conflict is increasingly happening in cities, another piece of research with imperial college we are doing, looking at how children's bodies are uniquely vulnerable to blast injuries, more at risk to adults. recruitment of children into armed forces, sexual violence against children, adoption of children. another very stark finding is that the numbers of people being denied humanitarian aid has gone up 15 times, starving, not getting health care because parties to
conflict are deliberately preventing aid from reaching them. which is absolutely shocking and scandalous. completely shocking. we talk about... we have called this report the war on children, one of the biggest alt on time and we are trying to raise awareness —— one of the biggest outrages of our time. literally millions of children whose lives are being destroyed preventively so that is what we need to look at. how did terrorists use children in war zones, nikita? this is one of the things that has been increasing, and incredibly effective strategy. a number of international conventions prevent the use of children by armed forces but terrorists will use children precisely because it disarms the individuals facing these children. and we see multiple levels of exploitation so children are used for child labour, often trafficked,
sexually abused, and they tend to listen to authority and not question it and what we see in conflict zones in particular is that the children are joining these groups for things as simple as food, a stable income, and with the case of islamic state, and with the case of islamic state, and non—state armed groups in the middle east, they are joining them because it gives them a sense of stability, the groups provide them with a distorted ideological indoctrination and education. and in times of war, the sense of stability for a child is very appealing. they are provided with basic human essentials. precisely. food and water and then become indoctrinated? that is what is most disheartening because these are basic needs, education, food, a safe place to sleep every night and we have these terrorist organisations offering it to these children who have often been separated from their families and providing them with very
radicalised ideas. and if they survive, how much long—term damage can this do to a child? it is immense because of the levels of trauma these children have experienced, the normalisation of violence, they have often been asked to commit all kinds of violence against people, and to make matters worse, when the children are captured by the state, they are often put in jail. captured by the state, they are often put injail. the majority of information we have received from children and their experiences have been from children injail. children and their experiences have been from children in jail. finally, ifi been from children in jail. finally, if i may ask you, george, from save the children, in light of the scandal that has emerged in the last week about 0xfam and officials there exploiting vulnerable people and inappropriate sexual behaviour, presumably save the children is looking at its own staff and procedures? exactly. the news this week, personally, ifound it shocking but also really sad and it has made me incredibly angry. we
exist to protect the most vulnerable so when you see that people who are professing to do the same thing but are professing to do the same thing but a re clearly professing to do the same thing but are clearly not taking advantage of the most vulnerable, it is really sick making, precisely the opposite of what we are here to do. you are right, we're looking at our systems and processes, we have child safeguarding training in teams and sexual harassment training, we have got the processes, but what i keep thinking and we keep talking about internally is it is about leadership and culture. we need an environment in which anyone who experiences harassment or exploitation feels comfortable bring it forward and they know something will be done and there is a culture of tolerance. i am optimistic is we will get there. —— a culture of zero tolerance. mission—critical for us, protecting the vulnerable. in some ways, i feel like this is something we will get to grips with, we have to get to
grips with, as the sector, and we are trying our best to do it. thank you very much for coming on the programme. the latest news and sport at10am. programme. the latest news and sport at 10am. before that, the weather. something a little bit milder on the way over the next few days. a bit of a chilly start this morning. compared with yesterday and the forecast, more sunshine around than yesterday afternoon. a few showers around, fairly wintry in the northern and western parts of the uk with some sleet and snow. this is where the showers have been so far today. mainly snow for scotland and northern ireland. the tops of the pennines and the brecon beacons. more showers across south—west england and wales. they will run across southern counties this morning. in between, lots of gaps in the cloud, lots of sunshine, particularly in the east. that will be the case into the afternoon. lunchtime, a few showers still
running across southern counties, one or two in wales and still some snow falling across the tops of the pennines. snow as well in northern ireland. from glasgow north on the highlands, the bulk of the snow today. as much as 20 centimetres of fresh snow over higher ground here. that will be blown around as well by pretty strong winds. temperatures for the afternoon, blue colours below freezing. not too bad today, up below freezing. not too bad today, up on recent days. double figures in the south—east. strengthening sunshine at the moment overhead. with more of it around today, it will feel more pleasant than it has done of late. going into tonight, we will start to see temperatures dropping quite smartly. further snow showers in western scotland, northern ireland, wintry flurries in the west of england and wales, but with clear skies, temperatures
dropping tonight. greater chances of frost. and greater risk of ice with the showers. tonight, parts of scotla nd the showers. tonight, parts of scotland and northern ireland, the northern lights for costs. bright red, greatest chance of seeing it tonight. the northern lights forecast. here you mayjust get treated to a little bit of a little glimpse of the bright colours dancing on the horizon in scotland and northern ireland. the risk of ice tomorrow morning. scotland and northern ireland, another day of thick cloud in the west, further outbreaks of rain and hail snow, not as much as today, temperatures on the rise with south—westerly winds. best of the sunshine in the eastern half of scotland and england. a fairly mild day. quick look into the
weekend, saturday, start with frost in southern areas, much having a dry and bright day. some outbreaks of rain and drizzle, mainly light and patchy. temperatures still holding up patchy. temperatures still holding up into double figures for some, continuing the mild theme into sunday. the big question mark is where the weather front will lie. goodbye for now. our top story — a 19—year—old man's in custody over the deaths of 17 people in a school shooting in florida. kids were evacuating. i heard five p0p: kids were evacuating. i heard five pop, i thought that is not a drill. we never did a drill like that we have a shooter in custody, he was taken into have a shooter in custody, he was ta ken into custody have a shooter in custody, he was taken into custody i believe about an hour after he left the school, after he committed this horrific
homicidele detestable act. we'll hear from a local reporter at the scene. children as young as 12 are being banned from driving after being caught on the road illegally, often with deadly consequences. we'll speak to the sisters of boy who died in a crash, here's one underage driver explaining why he does it. ido i do geta i do get a rush, you know, but i just want to put my foot down and go crazy. i've been in police chases and got away because we know where we need to go. if there's a group of us we will chip in, let an older person know we want a car, they will get a person know we want a car, they will geta car person know we want a car, they will get a carfrom person know we want a car, they will get a car from someone else. why do so many people put off going to the doctor to discuss worrying symptoms? a campaign is launching today to address this — it's called fofo — the fear of finding out — and it's encouraging people to get checked out when they first notice something wrong. good morning.
here's annita mcveigh in the bbc newsroom with a summary of todays news. at least 17 people have been shot dead by a gunman at a high school in florida. several other people are in hospital with serious injuries, after the attack at the marjory stoneman douglas it's the eighteenth shooting at an american school this year. police have named the suspect as 19—year—old nikolas cruz, a former student who had been expelled. the anc leader, cyril ramaphosa, will be sworn in as south africa's new president later today , following the resignation of jacob zuma. mr zuma's time in office has been marred by allegations of corruption, and his own party, the anc had threatened to force him out with a vote of no confidence. in a televised statement he said he was quitting with immediate effect but said he disagreed with his party's decision. a 17—year—old has been stabbed
to death in east london in a "sustained and possibly targeted attack" — the third teenager fatally knifed in the capital this year. the metropolitan police said officers were called to reports of a young person with stab wounds at an address in canning town, shortly after eight o clock on wednesday night. no—one has been arrested. the consumption of ultra—processed foods, including cakes, chicken nuggets and mass—produced bread is linked to the risk of cancer, according to researchers in france. the study of more than one hundred thousand people is published in the british medicaljournal. experts have expressed caution, but continue to advise eating a health balanced diet. the government has publicly blamed russian military intelligence for a cyber attack last year, which affected businesses around the world. the defence secretary, gavin williamson, said russia was "ripping up the rule book by undermining democracy and weaponising information". russia has denied responsibility for the attack. sinn fein is expected
to outline its next move today following the collapse of negotiations to restore power—sharing at stormont. talks ended yesterday when the democratic unionist party said there was no prospect of a deal. both parties have been locked in negotiations for 13 months. 0xfam has said it sacked its country director in haiti last yearfor mismanagement. the charity said damien berrendorf had faced allegations of inappropriate behaviour, but it said his dismissal was not related to sexual misconduct, or the scandal in 2011 involving aid workers in haiti paying local women for sex. that's a summary of the latest bbc news — more at 10.30. e—mailfrom mike e—mail from mike about the ultra processed food and cancer rates. mike says another day, another food scare, what next? do not eat at all?
this from glenn. it is a fallacy that eating healthily is expensive. a bunch of bananas 89 pence versus one quid for chocolate. broccoli, 45 pence versus processed chip, round 1.50. it is easy. i sport that hell—0 equals expensive. sport and hugh is back good morning. britain could claim its first medal of the winter olympics after skeleton slider dom parsons put himself in a good position half way through his competition. he is in fourth after two of his four runs in pyeongchang. 3 hundredth of a second from the bronze medal position. his final runs will be in the early hours of tomorrow morning a few m ista kes hours of tomorrow morning a few mistakes on the first run. probably a bit of race tension, ended up overdrying a couple of bits and a bit off line, but it is what it is i'm still in the mix i so i'll take
that. the alpine skiing is back on in the blue ribbon event. the norwegian became the oldest alpine skiing champion when he won the men's down hill. it is his second 0lympic men's down hill. it is his second olympic gold. mikaela shifrin is expected to be one of those big success stories of the game, the american won her first gold of these 2018 games in the giant slalom. she is bidding for three more titles on the slopes. they had been fourth overnight after massot completed a double instead of a triple salchow. they beat their own record today to finish ahead of the pairs from china, and canada. the curling is back on with the
round—robin matches continuing. the men's team responded to their defeat to canada yesterday with a win this morning against japan. it to canada yesterday with a win this morning againstjapan. it was enough to win it at 6—5, they are done for the day, after that one match against japan. it is something we talked about to be more consistent through the entire game, instead of having good spells and a few bad spells but i think we put that into action today. there was a couple of times things didn't look too good but we managed to get it out and it was a good team performance and we ground out the win. it is one win and one defeat for the women's team after losing to the united states, even muirhead's rink were expected to win, they return to the ice to play china, just after 11 o'clock this morning, so they have more work to do today. away from pyeongchang, there was another hugely impressive performance for an english side in
this champions league. it was liverpool's first game in the knock out stage, for nine year, they marked it with a naive nil win at porto in po —— 5—0 win in porto. it was very impressive from liverpool. as it was from real madrid. cristiano ronaldo became the first player to score 100 goals for a single club in the champions league. he helped them come from behind to beat paris st germain. that was his second of the night. so 101 overall for real madrid. that is all your sport for now. just seven weeks into 2018 and america has witnessed it's18th school shooting this year — the eighth in which schoolchildren have been killed or injured. this time it's a community in florida, recently named one of the safest in the country, which has seen another mass shooting. at least 17 people have been killed after a gunman opened fire with a rifle
at marjory stoneman douglas high school. police and swat teams swarmed the campus and began evacuating terrified students from the school, which is about an hour north of miami, as parents and ambulances gathered on the scene. this shocking footage shows students cowering as gunshots ring out. in the panic hundreds of students took shelter in classrooms and cupboards while emergency services methodically searched the school campus. nikolas cruz, a 19—year—old former pupil who had been expelled from the school, has been arrested. police say the shooting has devastated the community. we have a shooter in custody. he was taken into custody, i believe, about an hour after he left stoneman douglas, after he committed this horrific homicidal, detestable act. the fbi and our crime scene people will
begin processing this horrific scene as soon as the buildings are cleared. shocked students and parents have been describing what they saw. the fire alarm got pulled and kids were evacuating. and i was like, that not a drill. we never did a drill like that. we started evacuating towards the back, towards the middle school. i knew it was more than a drill because we haven't done that. we just have to wait. and we kept hearing shooters and we didn't know if it was fireworks or shooters. we keptjust going back and forth. and then it started going on news and found out what was really going on. literallyjust came from there, picking up some kids along the way, because a lot of the kids are really distraught as you can imagine, so it'sjust terrifying. terrified for the parents, terrified for the kids. very emotional. the governor of florida, rick scott, vowed to do everything in his power to ensure children were safe at school. you're furious.
how could this ever happen in this country? how could this happen in this state? this is a state that is focused on keeping all of our children safe. you come to the conclusion this is just absolutely pure evil. this state is not tolerating violence. we have law enforcement that will always show up to defend our safety. the shooting means another debate around tighter gun control in the us. florida is now the scene of one of the deadliest us school shootings since the 2012 attack at the sandy hook elementary school in connecticut where 20 children and six staff members were killed. chris murphy is the democratic senator for connecticut. he's made a passionate plea for action to be taken to prevent school shootings. this happens nowhere else other than
the united states. this epidemic of mass slaughter. this scourge of school shooting after school shooting. it only happens here not because of coincidence, not because of bad luck, but as a consequence of our inaction. we are responsible. for a level of mass atrocity that happens in this country, with zero parallel. anywhere else. as a pa rents, parallel. anywhere else. as a parents, it scares me to death that this body doesn't take seriously the safety of my children. it seems like a lot of parents in south florida are going to be asking that question later today. we pray for the
families, for the victims, we hope for the best. president trump tweeted his condolences saying: james laporta has been reporting from the scene of the shooting for the daily beast in florida. he told me how the community has been reacting. pa rents parents i pa rents i have parents i have talked to here, they have this, you know, almost a little bit of survivors' gill, in terms of like, for them, they thank god it wasn't their child who was killed in the shooting but then they almost feel bad for saying that, because they know someone else's family is impacted by this. you know, so it is a veryjust, it is a very sombre state right now, and it's veryjust
kind of surreal, you know. parents just, you know, the line that keeps getting uttered is, we never thought it would happen here, and that seems to be kind of the cliche now, every time this occurs, we never thought it would happen here and yet it does. so here we are. he posted some things that should have been a red flag. but cops should be killed, things of that
nature, cops oppress the good guys, so to speak, language kind of like that. usually, sometimes the red flags, hindsight, it tends to be 20-20, the flags, hindsight, it tends to be 20—20, the red flags only pieced together in the aftermath of something like this. from what i can gather, before this, he had disciplinary problems at the school. he was a former student of the high school, he was expelled, he had a history of disciplinary problems, posting things on social media that probably should have raised flags at the time. can you explain how somebody with a semiautomatic assault rifle can get onto school property, into a school? it is pretty easy. it is as simple as
planning, all it takes is planning. for him, very easy to do. he conducted the shooting at the end of the day. injanuary, the county schools had finished their training drills, in terms of what classrooms are supposed to do if something like this occurs. that onlyjust ended in january. so the procedures were fresh in his mind. still has friends at the high school. very easy for him to look for the methods that are in place at the school and to exploit the weaknesses there. in terms of him bringing guns onto the campus, very easy to do, especially with schools having the limited staff in terms of staff devoted to security. when the president says, no child, teacher or anyone else
should ever feel unsafe in no child, teacher or anyone else should everfeel unsafe in an american school, what do people think that means? i think he is right about that, although... in terms of what he will do in the future? the president is right, they should not feel that, but they are, they are scared right now. i have talked a couple of teachers here locally, an elementary school teacher, their school was near the high school, and from what she told me, she does not even know if she can do her job me, she does not even know if she can do herjob any more, being a teacher, she does not know if she can keep her children safe. she does not know if she can protect them. pa rents a re not know if she can protect them. parents are waking up not knowing what to tell their kids. while the president is correct that people should not feel that way, they are. and they are after every single time something like this happens. i said
earlier it seems like we are in this for lack of a better term feedback loop from hell where a mass shooting occurs and then we have a political debate and then the debate drops off and it doesn't rise again until another mass shooting happens. it does not seem like, and this isjust me being an observer, the lessons are being observed from shooting to shooting to shooting. reporting from florida. still to come... 0ne shooting to shooting. reporting from florida. still to come... one of britain's most successful boxes, still fighting at 37, david haye, how he is supporting up—and—coming boxers like joe joyce who will how he is supporting up—and—coming boxers likejoejoyce who will also be here. a bbc investigation has discovered that children as young as 12 are being banned from driving — before they're legally old enough
even to be behind the wheel. bbc yorkshire found there has been a 47% rise in the number of driving disqualifications for children aged 16 or under in the last four years. the rac say the figures are the tip of the iceberg. in a moment, we'll talk about what's behind the rise and what could be done to reverse it. but first, let's hear from an underage driver about how and why he breaks the law, and from the sisters of darnell harte, a 15—year—old who was killed in a crash in leeds late last year when another 15—year—old crashed the stolen car he was driving. i do get a rush, you know, where ijust want to put my foot down and go crazy. i've been in police chases and i've got away, because we know where we need to go. if there's a group of us, you know, we'll all chip in. we'll let an older person know that we want a car.
and then they'll get a car from someone else and then they'll bring it to us. our house will never be the same, our family will never be the same. darnell was literally the heart of our family. the judge should have said, i'm going to set an example, i'm going to teach young boys, or young girls, or young people that feel it is ok to steal a car that it's not ok, these are the consequences of your actions. because, you know, regardless of your age, you know what you're doing. let's talk to paul silverwood
who runs a car club teaching youngsters under the age of 17 to drive. nicole, who learnt to drive at the under—17s car club. and claire evans, who is consumer editor at what car magazine. i want you to react with the fact that children as young as 12 are being banned from driving according to the bbc yorkshire figures. shocking. what surprised me is the rate of increase, 47% over the last four years, rate of increase, 47% over the last four yea rs, really rate of increase, 47% over the last four years, really shocking. the other statistics that concerns me is the driving bans start from the day they appear in court, if you're 15, you get a two—year ban, it does not have an effect. there should be a ban and another ban from when they are 17. what do you think? agree. i think it is terrible they are able
to do this. it is perhaps kids in inner cities are not able to drive kids legally when they are older because it is so expensive, they cannot afford the insurance, £2000 a year on top of the cost of a car, a lot of kids will not get their own cars. so they steal them and sometimes end up dead? killing others? yes, absolutely terrible. i wonder if you could explain the attraction for you of wanting to learn to drive, nicole, before you reach the age of 17? why not wait?|j wanted to start so i could get the experience of driving before i was on the road, i wanted to be confident before i got onto the road. that was the main thing, really. i did not want to make mistakes and put anyone else in danger, i learnt on the airfield, i got the chance to learn the basics
like clutch control without actually having to make everyone else stop and nervous around me. that was the main reason, really. can you see why there is an attraction for other young people before the age of 17 to wa nt to young people before the age of 17 to want to get behind the wheel of a car? i can see where the attraction is. i love driving, absolutely love it now. i was never that king before i started driving, but when i started getting the hang of it, getting good, it is like a hobby now andl getting good, it is like a hobby now and i love it —— iwas getting good, it is like a hobby now and i love it —— i was never keen. i also help now. tell us more about the people who come through your clu b the people who come through your club who want to learn to drive before the age of 17 and where you do itand before the age of 17 and where you do it and how you do it safely? we have a mix, roughly 50% male and female. there was a perception it is a boys thing because that is what
boys like to do but it is not the case at all. we have an under 17 car clu b case at all. we have an under 17 car club which is from 11 up to 18 and we use airfields, racing tracks, off the public road, so we are legal. do you think it helps stop people driving illegally? teenagers driving illegally? yes, i think it gives them an outlet for that desire but it is done in a safe environment. the key thing for us is the technical side of driving is relatively easy. the main thing is that attitude, taking responsibility, having regard for your peers for the vehicle you are driving, it is virtually never the youngstersomeone else's. we do a lot of stuff around attitude, peer pressure, discussions on that, giving them help on how they can be asserted in situations they might
find themselves in. what sort of peer pressure might they come under? 0ne peer pressure might they come under? one of the examples we use as you go toa one of the examples we use as you go to a nightclub, you come out, two o'clock in the morning, someone promised you a lift home, they have disappeared, and you are stuck. but a friend says their boyfriend will give you a lift. you know he has been drinking. what do you do? get the car? take the risk? that is the debate we have. how old are children? 20 and 17. in terms of the desire to learn to drive, everybody has got it, haven't they? yes. my daughter in particular. we live in southeast london and the roads are really busy and people are not very forgiving for learner drivers so i took my son on a course, the five—day course, he got to learn on an airfield and everyone gave each other enough space. how old was he?
17. he appreciated it. in a week, he gained complete confidence. he came back home and had driving lessons and he would come out in the car for me and not feel panicky about being ina me and not feel panicky about being in a crowded situation. it gave him a huge amount of confidence. as you we re a huge amount of confidence. as you were learning at the under 17s car club, nicole, just thinking about when i was 14, 15, certainly not mature enough when i look back to be learning to drive? yeah, i did find it really hard at first, really stressful, i definitely did not pick it up at first, i was not a natural, but everyone was so nice, really reassuring. the marshals were really nice and i have made good friends with them now. it was very, very no pressure, you could do it at your own pace , pressure, you could do it at your own pace, it was definitely easier than learning to drive on the roads. still, some of your contemporaries,
where there are some who wanted to show off behind the wheel? yeah, sometimes it happens. but as marshall, we to either pull them aside... we do the peer pressure talks and it is called a breaking demonstration so we showed them that speed affects braking distances and how much impact that can have on motorways and speeding and stuff like that. it gives them a reality check once they start getting more confident. the reality is also these kinds of courses are under 17s are not the kind of things teenagers stealing cars will be interested in will be able to afford either.m stealing cars will be interested in will be able to afford either. it is relatively cheap, the five—day course, £170. that is not relatively cheap! we have a bursary scheme for those on low income is. you have to
provide a car, there has to be a level of income. that is what i mean. your course. . . level of income. that is what i mean. your course... what would you say to that, claire? talk to the pathfinder people, if your kid is really keen, see how they can help, there are a lot of... they are great charity. a lot of people want to help. you do not have to pay a lot of money for insurance on private land. definitely worth getting in touch with people. i think the benefits outweigh the cost. because we are saving the nation lots of, millions of pounds, in terms of not having accidents causing death or injury. thank you all very much. and if you're watching in yorkshire, you can see more on this story on bbc 0ne can see more on this story on bbc one at 6:30pm tonight. coming up, what next for south

fof0 stands for the fear of finding out and the campaign is highlighting the importance of early diagnosis and encouraging people to see their doctor. it's being backed by tv presenterjeff brazier, whose sons lost their mum, big brother starjade goody, from cervical cancer after she put off going for a smear test. jeff is here, as is dr philippa kaye, who is a family gp, and on skype from plymouth, mark mcgovern, a landscape gardener who had a stroke after ignoring the symptoms of type 2 diabetes for five years. welcome as well to you mark. ejeff, imean welcome as well to you mark. ejeff, i mean you know more than most, how important it is not to delay seeing a doctor i absolutely, important it is not to delay seeing a doctor! absolutely, i am important it is not to delay seeing a doctor i absolutely, i am the father of two bereaved children who have been put at a huge disadvantage throughout their childhood. the amount of knock on effects it has on their education, on their social
abilities, behavioural changes as well, . .. losing abilities, behavioural changes as well,... losing their mum? yes, i mean, you know as such a young age, four and five, i can see, for the last nine years experienced first hand the effects of the loss of a parent, but also within you consider that it was potentially avoidable, well there is no potentially, it was unnecessary and you imagine that it was jade's fear of finding out what those cervical irregularities were, because she had quite a few letterers and i can only imagine she wasn't putting it into the context we would have preferred her to, when you became a parent it is notjust about look after your own health and wellbeing, it is looking after, sorry it is not aboutjust looking after the children it is your own as well, and if she had known that by going into denial, avoidance,
suppression of not wanting to see what that reality was, what was going on within her body, if he knew she would lose her battle cancer, then i know she would have come to a very different conclusion earlier on. what has been the impact on the boys would you say in so the impact is again, they are just emotionally, they are less, they are less may be sta ble they are less, they are less may be stable than an average child. they can bea stable than an average child. they can be a lot of things that happen domesticically that can happen children, as enough as i try to be the all to them, i can never replace mum. it is a sense of identity they lose because you know, you find out a lot about who you are in life through who your mum and dad is s they have one who is present and still there, and trying to get as much right as he can, they have lost that big character that was their mum, that would have given them twice as much unconditional love as they received. so it is hard on the kids, and when you know it was
avoidable, it is just, kids, and when you know it was avoidable, it isjust, it is hard not to sit there and feel regret at time, regret for a decision that us withn't made, regret for a decision that could have been made better, you know. phillipa, do you understand from a gp's point of view this sort of psychological barrier, this obstacle that we put in place, to stop ourselves going to the doctors to check out? absolutely, we are not talking about the come coughs and cold, we are not talking about people who come to the gp for a sore throat. we are taking about more serious thing, the fear of finding out can be split, into what that is, for some people, it is, they don't like the doctor, they are scared of needle, they are scared of what the intervention will be, for others they are scared of the stigma, the effects on their family, theirjob and denial is is a hugely powerful tool that we use sometimes to protect us, essentially what happens
is that you deny, and you put aside until a trigger comes along, that forces you to do something, sometimes that trigger is early and it's somebody else was ill or a family friend or something like that, and sometimes it is yourself when an emergency happens, or pain starts to kick in. we want people to present before that trigger, before something happens, come to us early. even if you know that you have a fear, and you are well, come and tell us what that is. if it is for example needle phobia and you are ca re example needle phobia and you are care scared of pain i can give you a local anaesthetic, preprevention is better. no-one is going to come to a doctor, they won't make an appointment to come and say i am worried are about needles. i need to tell you this now, in case i have to have an injection. i don't think thatis have an injection. i don't think that is true. people come to us for a sore throat for an hour, and they
have access to us, and they come quickly. i have had athlete foots for two day, if you say i have a genuine phobia, that is a mental health problem and we need to do something about it. if people are willing to come for minor thing, come for something that could have a huge impact on your life. mark, hello, thank you for talking to us, you knew something wasn't right because you were going to the loo more, you experienced a lack of concentration, numbness and so on, what was it stopped you going to the doctors to get the symptoms checked out basic sickly i had a tia, back if march 2016 what is that? 0h| oh i think the skype has frozen. oh i think the skype has frozenm wasn't until i got to hospital that i actually got diagnosed with diabetes type two. because i had not been to the doctors and got my symptoms checked out, that is why i had the stroke.
right. and when you weren't going to the gp, perhaps you were thinking, i ought to get these things checked out. what did you think was going on? to be honest, i thought they we re on? to be honest, i thought they were just little thing, i on? to be honest, i thought they werejust little thing, i didn't think they were important, because it wasn't all happening at once, and gps and the nhs is stretched to the limits at the moment as it is, so i didn't want to be a burden to the doctors or the nhs for you know, little things as i saw them, so that was my thinking behind it, but i an a typical bloke. i can dismiss things and excuse things for not to do something like go to the doctors. a tia is a mini—stroke, you ended up being hospitalised, what were you thinking, when doctors at the hospital said you had type 2 diabetes? initially i was shocked when hay told me, because ijust said no —— i had no idea that that
was the case, and then i was scared because of my family, my future, and then anger set in, because i could have done something so much sooner andi have done something so much sooner and i wouldn'ted have ended up in the position i did do. but i mean when you think back, was... obviously you now wished you had gone to the gps earlier, what would have made do you that when you think about how you used to?“ would have made do you that when you think about how you used to? if i had seen... i think mark was going to say if he had seen a campaign like this one it is each individual‘s relationship with their own fear, i would like everybody to aevaluate that, we have got together with live lab to create this wonderful app so people can go and have, it is take a quiz and they can find out quickly, it doesn't take long to take what their relationship
with fear is and be given advice off the back of it as to if they have worrying symptoms what they can do with it. it is pretestimonitive. it is let us establish the fact before anything is wrong with you, whether you have a barrier, whether you have a relationship with fear that might stop you from taking the responsible steps, if not for you but for you family and those that love you, as i know only too well, it is all about keeping yourself healthy for the whole family, because we all need you, that is a parents' job first and foremost. ifi can mention taking the responsible steps, if not for you but for you family and those that love you, as i know only too well, it is all about keeping yourself healthy for the whole family, because we all need you, thatis family, because we all need you, that is a parents' job first and foremost. if i can mention about being a burden, "i don't want to be a burten" the cost if we can get to things early, and use preventative treatment or manage diabetes before there is a complication, it costs less to the nhs, than if we have serious complication and we need surgery, radiotherapy, that costs more than the cost of injade's example some little treatment to the
cervix and so that burden is greater with the latest dyings sips not just to the family, their lives but to the nhs. there was three layers of reasoning that you hear from there was three layers of reasoning that you hearfrom mark's there was three layers of reasoning that you hear from mark's example, isi that you hear from mark's example, is i don't want to be a burden, they arejust is i don't want to be a burden, they are just little things, i am a typical bloke, you can hear tip. i bet we could have a conversation with hundreds of people and you would pick them out. let us get rid of that mentality and let us make ourselves more important to ourselves more important to ourselves than we do sometimes. quick final worse word from you mark, a message for putting off going to the doctor, what would you say you know you own body, you know when something is amiss. just speak to somebody. please go. that is the message. listen to your body. thank you. thank you very much, we appreciate it. thank you. cyril ramaphosa is due to become south africa's president
after embattled leader jacob zuma resigned. mr zuma was under intense pressure from his own anc party, which told him to step down or face a vote of no—confidence in parliament. in a televised statement, he said he was quitting with immediate the anc should never be divided in my name. i have therefore come to the decision to resign as president of the republic with immediate effect. so, just who is cyril ramaphosa? take a look at this. that i will be faithful to the republic of south africa, so help me god. it has definitely had a very
negative impact on the economy of our country, whether people want to accept it or not, it has. let's speak now to dr penuell maduna, who served as a minister under south african presidents nelson mandela and thabo mbeki, and remains an anc member. how and remains an anc member. do you react to the! zuma how do you react to the factjacob zuma has finally gone? in fact, i fully a cce pt zuma has finally gone? in fact, i fully accept and endorse what has happened. and how will cyril ramaphosa be different? well, that isa ramaphosa be different? well, that is a very interesting question. he has so far been making all the right noises about what has gone wrong,
not only with the anc but with the country itself. you know, we are not looking for an angel in a human being, we're not looking for someone who drops in from somewhere, we are looking at a human being accepting that everyone of us both strengths and weaknesses or human foibles. but you are looking at a man who at least exhibits the courage to change the way we have been doing things, particularly in the last nine years. 0k, what should be number one on cyril ramaphosa's priority list, the new president? what is the first
thing he needs to do, in your view, briefly? well, for me, the first thing would be to remove all the square pegs that are in round holes. what does that mean in plain english? all the terrible appointments that were made for all manner of reasons, those must go. people who are linked directly or indirectly to what has gone wrong with the anc itself, in many insta nces, with the anc itself, in many instances, people whose deeds and uttera nces instances, people whose deeds and utterances have tarnished the image of anc have got to go. anyone who is a friend ofjacob zuma, of anc have got to go. anyone who is a friend of jacob zuma, effectively? that is precisely the point, yes. that is precisely the point, yes. that is precisely the point, yes. that is the first thing. you cannot present this country people who have been exposed as having done all of
things that constitute whatever we understand by state capture. ok, thank you very much for your time, we are grateful, dr penuell maduna, a member of the anc. david haye is one of this country's most successful boxers. he's due to take to the ring again in may for a rematch with tony bellew after he famously, and excruciatingly, tore his achilles during their last fight. but he's also become a promoter, manager and a mentor and is backing british 0lympic silver medaliist joejoyce in his second professional fight tomorrow. joe is britain's most decorated male amateur boxer who wants to become a household name, a bit like his old sparring partner, anthonyjoshua. good morning. thank you for coming on the programme. starting with david, we will talk about your fight tomorrow, but at 37... yes, sounds
strange! can your body withstand the rigours of fighting and training? last time, it didn't. i slapped my achilles tendon in half, reconstructive surgery, and a few months ago, i snapped my bicep. a lot of people think, no. i believe with the right new training and nutrition, i believe there are a couple of fights left in me. tony bellew, great fight last time, i'm looking forward to it. although the fight did not go my way, everyone got a good night's entertainment. that is why i am in boxing, to entertain and although i lost, it was an entertaining fight. we will do it all over again at the 02 arena. you're not in boxing win estimate i am in boxing to win. i had one leg and i was still swinging to the brim to the bitter end. ——
you are not in boxing to win? a lot of people do not believe i have it, in my heart, i believe i do, i am in boxing to prove i am the best.|j think you have fought three times in six years. yes. on paper... my eyebrows a re six years. yes. on paper... my eyebrows are here. on paper, not good. when muhammad ali went to fight george foreman, he had lost a couple of big fights, yet george foreman had knocked them out, they said, no chance, too old, he turned it around, his legacy was on winning the fight is on paper he should not win. if! the fight is on paper he should not win. if i win the fights i have left in me, it will solidify my legacy as one of the best british fighters ever. muhammad ali, your hero. his career, he perhaps left it too late to walk away, you do not want to do the same. 100%. the
to walk away, you do not want to do the same. 10096. the difference with me, even my last fight i lost, i did not take that many head shots, i have very good defence, slip and slide, i will know when it is time to step away from the ring. in training, i'm doing things i have never done before, a new coach, and we have brought overjoe's coach over from las vegas, we have brought overjoe's coach overfrom las vegas, i have a new lease of life, really enjoying it. definitely not time to retire. hello, joe. silver 0lympic medallist, among many titles. you went pro last year, tell me about your second professional fight tomorrow. i am going to fight rudolf jozic. he will be strong. six foot five. he can bang. it will be a really entertaining fight. is it? i have read a lot in the run—up to this, everybody seems to be saying
it will be very straightforward for you and not potentially as challenging as your first professionalfight? challenging as your first professional fight? possibly. challenging as your first professionalfight? possibly. but he is heavyweight and i have to be on my... is heavyweight and i have to be on i is heavyweight and i have to be on my... i have to be switched on, not ta ke my... i have to be switched on, not take any silly shots, perform to the best of my ability, and i will obviously come through, should i do that. 0k. obviously come through, should i do that. ok. obviously, iwant to ask you about the silver medal, 2016, many felt the judges robbed you of gold, is that still brought with you? no, gold, is that still brought with you? no, i have moved on. nearly two years ago. -- is that still raw for you? i came back with an olympic medal. i felt i put everything in and unfortunately, i did not get the gold medal which i aim to do at the time and it was my long—term dream,
but i am an olympian and i will make an impact in professional boxing. i willjust an impact in professional boxing. i will just concentrate on an impact in professional boxing. i willjust concentrate on that now. given your options, looking around the professional world, why did you link up with david and his promotional outfit? i like to be a bit different and i felt david is very good at self—promotion and i kind of wanted to do something different and i felt he had a lot to offer and to teach me, alongside richard who was currently running ringo —— ringstar. richard who was currently running ringo -- ringstar. where do you both stand on anthonyjoshua? ringo -- ringstar. where do you both stand on anthony joshua ?|j ringo -- ringstar. where do you both stand on anthony joshua? i only got on the gb team after he had
qualified for london, so then he we nt qualified for london, so then he went before me and he had his olympics and then it was my turn to represent the country at rio games. obviously, i had seen how he was doing in his pro career, i did a lot of round sparring on the gb team, so we have helped each other along the way because obviously having him as a sparring partner, getting ready for major championships like europeans, worlds, olympic games, great to have a world champion to spark because i know any opponent i may face may not be quite as good —— to spar. great to have someone on that level to challenge me so when i am at the competitions, it is a lot
easier. how do you rate anthony joshua? brilliant. undefeated, 20 fights, 20 knockouts, he has won in an exciting manner, he is the ideal heavyweight champion, young, probably ten years younger than me. he has led a boom in british boxing. he has led a boom in british boxing. he has, injected in the youth, the young kids coming through, they see him, they aspire to be the next anthonyjoshua. i'm 37, ten years older... if you beat tony bellew, could you fight anthonyjoshua? older... if you beat tony bellew, could you fight anthony joshua? for me, i would could you fight anthony joshua? for me, iwould be could you fight anthony joshua? for me, i would be such an underdog. you would. how do you build your legacy without fights like that? no good fighting people everyone knows i will beat. if i beat someone three inches taller, ten years younger, three stone heavier, that will leave a legacy. the biggest possible fights for me and the most dangerous fights are the ones i have gone
after. for instance, when i won ten yea rs after. for instance, when i won ten years ago, no one thought i could beat him, i did it. a lot of people now remember that huge fight. i want the biggest fights in the most exciting fights. are you addicted? do you need the money? no. i have been very comfortable for a while. it gets beyond the financial thing, it becomes a legacy thing, how you are remembered in years to come. i have always loved the thought of being a massive underdog. i always liked that, i liked to go against the grain and take the fights people do not expect. finally, i want to ask you, if i may, the women who go into the ring between each round holding upa into the ring between each round holding up a sign, you know motor racing has got rid of them, should boxing get rid of that ring girls? as far as boxing get rid of that ring girls? as farasi boxing get rid of that ring girls? as far as i have been in boxing, they have been there, telling you they have been there, telling you
the round, useful tool between rounds, you are so connected to the fight, you forget what brand it is, the girl gets up... practical use, but what about... where else do you find out what the round is? no screens in the smaller fights. men could do it. in sweden, there was a female world champion, she had ring men. it works both ways. good luck for tomorrow night. good luck in may. thank you very much for coming on the programme. thanks for watching. we are back tomorrow at nine. have a good day. good morning. after the last couple of days, lots of cloud, rain, fairly strong winds, and today a big improvement for many of us, lots of blue sky and sunshine at the moment. this is north wales. and this is the south—east of england. staying fine
