these students were saying goodbye to a 14—year—old classmate. they and their parents have been calling to action —— they and their parents have been calling for action from president trump so other teenagers won't die this way. he and the first lady visited some of the injured still in hospital, including a woman who had been shot four times. he congratulated the medical staff... reporter: do our gun laws need to be changed, mr president? ..but ignored a question about tougher gun control. this is where the president is in his element, meeting first responders who rescued the wounded and captured the killer. he piled on the praise for their speed and bravery. his wife thanked them for protecting the children. they are our future, and let's take care of them because they went through a lot and what they experienced, two days ago, we need to take care of them. the president is talking about making schools safer and has linked the violence to mental health
issues rather than guns. the young man who carried out the attack, nikolas cruz, was a troubled youth who loved guns and found it easy to buy them. it has emerged that fbi ignored a tip—off about him last month. the caller warned he had the potential to carry out a school shooting. so, mistakes by law enforcement add a new twist to a grimly familiar arguments. mass shootings in america revived debate about gun control. but a school shooting like this one boils the issue down to our question — how can we keep our children safe? and the people he willjudge their president on how he responds to that. earlier we spoke to one of the stu d e nts earlier we spoke to one of the students who moved from coventry to parkland three years ago and told us why he would be returning to the school when the gunmen opened fire.
this is our home, this is our high school, this is our city and it is a personal attack for us and i know the people i have been speaking to, as crazy as it may sound, we want to go back, you know? we want to walk the halls, we want to bounce back, we wa nt the halls, we want to bounce back, we want to say that we might be scarred but it hasn't beaten us. i know what will be a lot harder for the freshman and soft moz and most of them were obviously much closer because it was the freshman building and they are much younger than us and they are much younger than us and they are going to have to walk those halls for a lot longer than we are. but the community here has been phenomenal. and the recovery, it will take time but i am 100% sure that we are going to bounce back from this. but the russians have been charged with interfering in the us election in a major development in an fbi investigation. among the allegations are they promoted
disparaging messages about the democratic candidate hillary clinton. the russian foreign ministry has described the allegations as absurd. theresa may will today urge the european union to put aside political doctrine and ideology and sign up to a post—brexit security treaty with britain. at a conference in munich, she is expected to say that nothing must get in the way of britain and the eu helping each other to keep people safe. our chief political correspondent vicki young reports. in berlin, with angela merkel, the prime minister called for a deep and special trading relationship with the eu after brexit. but she is also asking for a unique arrangement on security. i will reiterate that the uk remains unconditionally committed to european security and set out my vision for a unique new partnership between the eu and the uk. on defence, information sharing, security and law enforcement. we must work together and use all levers at our disposal to keep people across europe safe. the thrust of her argument
is that the uk is a special case, offering substantial defence resources and expertise in counter—terrorism. the prime minister will say that failure to sign up to a new security treaty would have damaging consequences, playing into the hands of our enemies, who would like nothing more than to see europe divided. it comes after the head of mi6 joined with his french and german counterpart to appeal to continued intelligence sharing after brexit. mrs may will tell eu leaders not to let their deep—seated ideology put europe's citizens in danger. the hope is that the eu will take a practical approach, because they accept that continuing to work together is mutually beneficial. theresa may will make her speech just after 8:30 am and we will bring you some of that as it happens. the president of haiti has called for an investigation into the activities of aid agencies working in his country, saying that the sex scandal involving some oxfam workers
after the 2010 earthquake was just the tip of the iceberg. he told the reuters news agency that one charity, medecins sans frontiers, had repatriated some its staff from haiti without any explanation. john mcmanus reports. haiti in the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake. oxfam has been on the defensive over allegations that some of its staff paid prostitutes here. i always dreamed of working for them. this woman, who spoke anonymously to the bbc, says she was attacked by a colleague. he pinned me up against the wall, he was groping me, grabbing me, kissing me and i wasjust trying to shove him off. and got him off eventually and he got mad and he threw his class at me. —— glass at me. now, haiti's presidentjovenel moise has said other charities also have questions to answer and he has made a specific allegation against medecins sans frontiers, also known as doctors without borders, who sends medical staff around the world.
the president said msf had to repatriate about 17 people for misconduct, without any explanation why. in response, msf said: msf has already admitted that it fired i9 staff members last year after allegations of harassment or sexual assault. so how widespread is the problem? oxfam are not alone in this. every agency in the sector has the problem. we work in a sector that attracts the vulnerable — that, works, sorry supports honourable people. therefore, attracts predators. meanwhile oxfam's uk head says the evidence in haiti were a disgrace but also told
the guardian newspaper that: certainly, the intense scrutiny of the aid sector is unlikely to stop soon. the fate of ukip‘s current leader, the party's fourth in 18 months, will be decided at an emergency general meeting today. ukip members will vote whether henry bolton should stay or go following revelations his former girlfriend sent racist messages about prince harry's fiancee meghan markle. let's speak to our political correspondent matt cole, who is in our london newsroom for us this morning. good morning. this feels like a pretty important daily for ukip, given the headlines that have followed their leader around recently. absolutely, good morning, this is the big decision day for ukip, we believe at least 1000 members are going to gather in birmingham and it will be a very
simple process, really— henry bolton will get to put his case to the members who have gathered there are why he should be allowed to stay on as leader. he will speak after members of the national executive, who voted one month ago that he should leave. they will get to put their case was two sides of the argument have been put. those thousand members also do turn up will face a simple ballot, although within a couple of hours whether henry bolton stays or goes and if he loses, it has promised that he will stand aside. ukip will be looking for what it is is fifth leader in a little over 18 months or so, a previous incumbent might —— nigel farage has suggested that the henry bolton should stay on because the party is somewhat imploding but whatever happens, whichever way the result goes, ukip will have rather a lot of trouble keeping itself together. thank you. british soldiers are to be deployed to africa to boost the fight against illegal wildlife poaching. they will train rangers in malawi to find and stop poachers, in an expansion of a successful pilot scheme that was
trialled last year. the defence secretary gavin williamson said poaching puts majestic animals at risk. animals under threat include elephants, rhinos and lions. the sport coming up shortly, and news of another medal the team gb. —— forteam gb. police are investigating hundreds of accusations of historic abuse within football following the conviction of former football scout barry bennell. questions have been raised about the safety of young players at grassroots level. before the scale of the problem became known, football clubs had safeguarding procedures in place like designated safety officers. it now says the football associations says it has made changes to its safeguarding procedures. it now offers counselling for anyone affected by abuse, as well as monitoring all youth football clubs in england to make sure they follow their rules.
last november, the government announced plans to change the law so that coaches would be placed legally in positions of trust, making sexual relationships between sports coaches and players aged 16 and 17 illegal. chantel scherer is from the sport and recreation alliance, a body that represents national sports organisations, including the fa. thanks forjoining us. the safeguarding measures that are in place, do you think they are adequate and will be effective? good morning. yes, ithink adequate and will be effective? good morning. yes, i think we can't become complacent but i think the sport and recreation sector is making strong strides and is committed to making sure that people who play sport and watch sport and volunteer in sport and work in sport can do so safely and in an environment where a protect it, particularly young children and adults at risk. i imagine now that
as the e barry bennell cases come to light, we were talking to two of his victims is not very eloquently and passionately about what they want to see in the future of sport in the future of safeguarding young people in the future are very concerned about this. —— barry bennell. you think parents watching this now can feel that their children will be safe, that the measures they should be put in place are put in place? absolutely. having strong policies and procedures in place is an absolute must but i think what must goa absolute must but i think what must go a long side that is a culture of round safeguarding which is all of us round safeguarding which is all of us that are involved in sport, including the parents. as parents get ready to drop their children off the sports activities this morning it is important they know what kind of policies and procedures are in place and let the environment is in their club as well as the young people knowing that there are policies and procedures and they can talk to someone and when they do they will be listened to and acted upon swiftly. how shocking do you find it that only now the government
has said that relationships between 16 and 17 —year—olds and their courage should be illegal? —— coach. you would assume that would just be automatic on you? i think the thing to focus on is the agreement has now been made and that is really important. i think sports coaches have always been a slightly great position mainly because sometimes baleful em ployees position mainly because sometimes baleful employees of a club that often times they are volunteers and soi often times they are volunteers and so i think the commitment from the government on this cross departmental policy is surely important but now we just need to make sure that comes into place and alongside of a culture of safeguarding that we can really start to protect everyone involved in sport because the benefits of sport far outweigh sometimes some of these risks and it is really important that as a society we can participate and reap these benefits. you will forgive me i'm sure but actually people are saying i don't need to focus on the agreement, only to focus on the idea that there is 110w to focus on the idea that there is now prevalent acceptance that
relationships between 16 and 17 —year—olds and their coaches was never accepted. but there is actually a sea change in attitudes and it has been fed through, it isn't accepted that this is a great area, it is not accepted that the agreement is now in place and therefore things will change, it should just be that coach is no it is wrong to have a relationship with a child. absolutely, that goes without saying and what is important 110w without saying and what is important now is coaches are subject to the same restrictions... you are quite right, they should have always been subjected to those. but now with a profile raised around this issue it is more difficult and that's what safeguarding is about, venting things from happening and making sure there are systems in place and eve ryo ne sure there are systems in place and everyone is aware that they are there. children need to be protected and this is just one step towards doing that. thank you very much for
talking to us this morning. here's sarah with a look at this morning's weather. good morning. thing is not looking bad out there. any of us will have a dry day, a bit like this scene taken yesterday in fife. today is the better day of the weekend in terms of sunshine. more cloud tomorrow and things turning milder. some rain towards the west. a bit of rain this morning, but many are dry. the satellite image shows a lot of cloud. a weak front is pushing south—eastwards. towards the north—west and south—east you should see some relatively clear skies today, but the front brings cloud across central parts of the country and some outbreaks of rain. parts of northern england, the midlands, southern wales, a bit of rain and maybe a touch of hill snow before it clears to the south and east.
scotla nd clears to the south and east. scotland and northern ireland already in the clear. showers into the west of scotland. perhaps a couple of northern ireland and the north—west of england, falling as snow here. to the south—east you are likely to have clear skies for much of the day. as the weak front cleaves to the east and many will see clear and dry conditions tonight. in eastern side of the country we keep the clear conditions tomorrow morning. a frost likely here and mist and fog patches. further west with cotton as front arriving. —— the next front. it is a warm front so it will bring mild air. you can see the yellow colours indicating the milder air mass coming from the west or south—westerly direction through sunday. a chilly start to the east, with the mist, fog and frost. in eastern scotland and eastern england we keep the sunshine for a good part of the day. further west we've already got the cloud and we will have patchy outbreaks of rain, especially the northern ireland,
western scotland and western parts of england and wales. the bridge is similarto of england and wales. the bridge is similar to today, 7—11 degrees tomorrow —— temperatures. monday will be cloudy. the weather front still hanging around, so we could see outbreaks of rain, especially in eastern parts of the country. turning cooler from the east later on monday, but temperatures in double figures across northern ireland and the south—west of england. next week the yellow colours clear to the south and they are replaced by the blue colours, indicating that cold air will come from an easterly direction through next week. so although it will be a mild start the next few days will be quiet and cloudy and things could turn more wintry through the course of next week. if you are a fan of the mullet, the hairstyle, or the ponytail
or the beehive. notice they all have links! then a new exhibition that celebrates the history of hairdressing may well interest you. another person who may be interested is our entertainment correspondent colin paterson. sometimes the way stories are signed at the bbc can lead to the cruel hand of fate being dealt. despite being one of the very boldest correspondence, here i was dispatched to barnsley to cover the opening of a new exhibition dedicated to head dressing. beehives, bobs and blowdried explores the history of hair from the 19505 until the present day and former hairdresser of the year andrew barton wa5 former hairdresser of the year andrew barton was back in his home
time curating the wigs. -- hometown. hairdressing i5 time curating the wigs. -- hometown. hairdressing is one of those careers that can be incredibly exciting for young people to get into. we employ about 1% of the total uk workforce. it is true profession. what is it about a new hairstyle that gives you about a new hairstyle that gives you a new outlook? hair is that one outfit that she never takes off, so it means so much to her and what we wa nt to it means so much to her and what we want to do in the exhibition is really kind of 5howca5e want to do in the exhibition is really kind of showcase all the cultural a5pect5, why things have happened in hair fashion cultural a5pect5, why things have happened in hairfashion over and throughout history. what could be more flattering than a style that can be adapted simply by the addition of a matching week? despite hairdressing having been a multibillion pound industry for decades, this exhibition claims to be the first ever in britain to fully examine the subject. everyone has got ahead of story. some experience of being in a salad and that transformation —— salon. do we really wanted to show that side of it and to think about the links. how does hairdressing evolve? how does
technology come into this? deborah and denise have worked together for almost a0 year5 deborah and denise have worked together for almost a0 years in the 5ame barnsley 5alon. together for almost a0 years in the same barnsley salon. that's me and that one is me. then a trip to the exhibition was a snip down memory lane. people used to have rollers in their hairand lane. people used to have rollers in their hair and that was the only way to get movement and curl in their pa nts to to get movement and curl in their pants to do it at home would have been a great time5aver. pants to do it at home would have been a great timesaver. pop music had a real influence on head. there we re had a real influence on head. there were local bands from sheffield. had a real influence on head. there were local bands from sheffieldlj was were local bands from sheffield.” was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar... people wanted that to be recreated. i want that haircut, the girl from human league. before i left i want to show —— share my own peace of hair history. thi5 share my own peace of hair history. this was me at my school prom. 0k,
wow! rockabilly quiff inspired. not many people coming to shops asking for that, i bet. it's very on trend at the moment! colin paterson, bbc news, bold in barnsley. beehives, bob5 and blow—dries is at barnsley civic until the 7th of april. who would have ever recognised colin with that quiff? an impressive haircut. a lot of hairspray involved in that we are reliably told and colin says he was trying to play homage to the smiths front man morrisey. i don't think he looks much different now. he doesn't have hair any more. that's what he was doing, emulating jedward. i quite like that.
i think it's a good look. they asked a personal question? no. we will have the sport and the weather coming up later. perhaps you have some pictures you would like to share of hair gone by. send them to us and we will try to 5how send them to us and we will try to show them later in the programme. theresa may has spent months calling for a special economic partnership with the european union after brexit, but today her focus turns to security. in around an hour, at a conference in munich, she is expected to ask for a unique arrangement to enshrine benefits of cooperation". so how safe will we be after we leave the eu? let's talk to the security expert ciaran martin, who joins us from westminster. good morning. this message, we have been told she will make a speech in about one hour. what do you think the focus is right now in terms of
how we address security and the relationship between nations? well, i'm just back from unique myself because i run the government's national cyber security centre and there was a meeting on thursday of a similargroup of there was a meeting on thursday of a similar group of experts ahead of the main conference on cyber security and what i think from the uk point of view the prime minister is seeking to achieve is how the unconditional offer of support to our european partners in cyber security after the departure from the european union can work. in my field of cyber security, we are seeing as a leader in european cyber security. we are given threat data to more than half of the eu countries, we are leading the way in european electoral security as we face up to the threats from russia and the threats from cyber criminals. so i think some of those arrangements will need further refinement after brexit. i think
what the uk delegation will be looking to do is to cement that deep and enduring partnership in the face of common threats, including in the field of cyber security. you are not a politician. you are in the business of security, if you like, and you said what your role is. politics has a big part to play, doesn't it? there have to be agreement so you can share information and we know now from many occasions internationally that the sharing of information is so crucial. the sharing of information is crucial and so on thursday i was discussing greater sharing of cyber security information with german and other european partners. on friday, the head of mi6 was there with his partners from france, germany and other countries, calling for greater sharing and the prime minister will be taking up forward today. and there's a range of issues here. if you take for example the agreement that the prime minister signed with president macron of france in
january, that sort of cooperation can go on regardless of the form the future relationship with the eu ta kes. future relationship with the eu takes. there are other more specific things such as for example in minefield sharing of cyber threat gratified information with the eu institutions, where as a non— member state will have to come to a new arrangement for sharing that date. but that standard tractors in intelligence sharing should be possible if the sort of pragmatism and commonsense of the prime minister is for prevails, because the commitment to common european security is unconditional and so important to our values, prosperity and way of life and that's what we're working with european partners on every day. it can't have a conversation on why it is all important without asking what that risk. what is at risk if there isn't a clear pathway and there are hurdles and problems along the way? what's the risk? our commitment to european security is unconditional.
what we don't want is unnecessary impediments to that sort of corporate... cooperation. we will work around whatever impediments they may be in the future. but what iam they may be in the future. but what i am saying and what the head of mi6 and the pm is saying is there is no need for this and we want to work through those new arrangements and enshrine them in a treaty and we face a range of national security threats, including cyber security, and disruption of services, which can put people at harm, all the way through to the risk of large—scale economic damage. this is a common problem across the whole of the west that we need to work together in the most effective way to combat that threat. everyone presumably is on—board the threat. everyone presumably is on—boa rd the principles threat. everyone presumably is on—board the principles of what you are saying, but i and interested in your phraseology. you use the word impediments. that could mean a lot of things to a lot of people. in
practical terms, an impediment could have disastrous consequences, especially in the fast moving world of cyber security that you are talking about. one of the real risks, and these risks are changing, is that in cyber security you don't have time to arrange things as it happening. this will unfold beneath you and an impediment could have disastrous consequences in a very short space of time? we are leaders in european cyber security and we are sharing that information all the time with other countries. we will continue to share that information with other countries regardless because our ability to share information with other european union member states isn't contingent on membership of the european union. there are things in terms of date flows in europe as a whole and sharing pieces of information where we need to negotiate new arrangements with the eu as a whole. those should and can be straightforward. we should be wrapped up into the sort of arrangements the pm is proposing. they are vital. the is there is
there. there are no known impediments at the moment and there's no need for any in the future the european cyber security corporation. the is there as a leader, passionately committed to european and global cyber security, so let's get on with the job in the most effective way we can. thank you very much for your time this morning. just a reminder that the speech from the pm is taking place little later this morning, just around eight 30 a.m. , so we will try to listen to some of that. the headlines are coming up. we will be back with hello, this is breakfast with naga munchetty and charlie stayt. good morning. here's a summary of today's main stories from bbc news. president trump has met survivors of wednesday's high school gun attack in florida in which 17 people were killed. he praised emergency workers and medical staff for their response but has refused to discuss gun laws, despite strong calls from those affected by the shootings. theresa may is expected to urge the european union to put aside political doctrine and ideology
and sign up to a post—brexit security treaty with britain. speaking at a conference in munich this morning, she'll say that nothing must get in the way of britain and the eu helping each other to keep people safe. she'll also talk of the need for real political will to safeguard the level of co—operation which has developed over decades. the president of haiti has called for an investigation into the activities of aid agencies working in his country, saying that the scandal involving some oxfam workers was just the tip of the iceberg. he said the charity doctors without borders had repatriated some of its staff from haiti without any explanation. the charity said it takes any reports of staff misconduct seriously and are seeking to clarify the questions raised. 13 russians have been charged with interfering in the 2016 us election in a major development in the fbi investigation. among the allegations are that they promoted disparaging messages about the democratic candidate, hillary clinton. the russian foreign ministry has described the allegations as absurd. ukip members will vote
for or against sacking their current leader at an emergency meeting in birmingham today. the party's national executive committee backed a vote of no confidence in henry bolton last month, but he has refused to step down after it emerged his former girlfriend had sent a series of racist messages about prince harry's fiancee, meghan markle. police in manchester have charged a man with murder after the body of a 2a—year—old woman was found in the ancoats area of the city. danielle richardson's body was discovered after police were called after a man was seen jumping from a second—storey flat window. he will appear at manchester city magistrates‘ court later today. british soldiers are to be deployed to africa to boost the fight against illegal wildlife poaching. they will train rangers in malawi to find and stop poachers in an expansion of a successful pilot scheme that was trialled last year. the defence secretary gavin williamson said poaching puts majestic animals at risk. animals under threat include elephants, rhinos and lions. it is 732 and let's talk to mike.
slowly but steady, the medal tally is growing. an all—important second battle to follow dom parsons's one. a first ever medal for britain on skis this is ski slopestyle and perhaps we didn't see this coming because izzy atkin is only 19. she is english, lives in america but luckily for us, herfather is english, lives in america but luckily for us, her father is from birmingham city chose to represent britain. ochi she chose us! we are honoured, aren't we? could this be the start of a super saturday on the slopes of pyeongchang for great britain? izzy atkin has become britain's second medallist of the games, adding to dom parsons' bronze in the skeleton, with a bronze of her own in the ski slopestyle. ben croucher reports. this is the face of history, great
britain's first silverware on skis. slopestyle is about nailing the ralph and avoiding the bumps on the jumps, this teenager adds substance with some style. born and raised in the usa to a british father and malaysia and mother she honed his skills on the slopes of main she was three. trips like this have taken 16 yea rs three. trips like this have taken 16 years in the planning. for the final of three runs atkin was pushed from the podium, this had to be flawless. the biggest one of her life. starts now. every bride, twist, jump, driving with jeopardy. now. every bride, twist, jump, driving withjeopardy. she now. every bride, twist, jump, driving with jeopardy. she lay down the score good enough or third but could anybody deny her some slopestyle silverware? no! she is down! reach britain's izzy atkin ta kes a down! reach britain's izzy atkin takes a bronze! there were tons of big names in the field, dinner, anyone, it could have been anyone andl anyone, it could have been anyone and i was standing at the bottom after my third and final run and knew i had skied the best i could and was waiting for those last three
or four and was waiting for those last three orfourgirls to drop and was waiting for those last three or four girls to drop and is just and was waiting for those last three or four girls to drop and isjust my heart was racing but yeah, i cannot believe it. believe it, you are an olympic gold—medallist —— bronze villis. brilliant, well done. in curling, britain's women enjoyed a fairly routine victory against denmark. they've now got three wins out of four and haven't got too long to feel too smug — they'll play south korea later this morning. the men are facing a shock defeat to south korea, who came into this match bottom of the group and without a win, it looks as though south korea have won it. they were bottom of the table but have just beaten reach britain 10—5 it was the last time i looked the great britain now face italy tomorrow which will be a crucial match because they could buy then be out of the top four. still a long way to go, we have to say that. many more matches for great britain to recover. it isn't a knockout? no, it isa to recover. it isn't a knockout? no, it is a round—robin against the
other teams. we were third but they may drop now out of the top four temporarily. we will follow their progress. that was a shock because south korea have been doing so badly. following the bronze medal for dom parsons yesterday, great britain could add two more medals in the women's skeleton. laura deas lies in fourth position at the halfway mark whilst team—mate lizzy yarnold is third. she's just one tenth behind the leader with two more runs to go. she's aiming to become the first briton to successfully defend a winter olympic title. i am an athlete that loves to compete at these big events when everyone is bringing their best, so i think i am still well in the mix, so, i mean, that was the big goal. it is frightening to say, but to be the first british winter olympian to maintain my title. it has not been easy, it has been a hard few years but hopefully i can do it for everyone who has supported me. indeed, remember,
britain has won a skeleton medal at every games since the sport was re—introduced at the 2002 winter olympics in salt lake city when a bronze medal was brought home by alex coomber, who joins us now. morning, alex. warning. —— morning! so you know what it takes to hold your nerves on the final run — you did it with a broken wrist. we went to the holding camp in calgary and the calgary track of the notorious bend known as a prize or when you go 360 and come out pretty much under way you went in and it is a tricky exit, and i came from one of the runs, smashed into the side, thought for a few days that my arm hurts a bit, but didn't find out until i got home actually around three weeks later when it was still in quitea three weeks later when it was still in quite a lot of pain. what is it in yourtraining in quite a lot of pain. what is it in your training that happens when you are almost told to ignore injuries because we saw katy, she injured her wrist and she was on instagram and post picture of her
wrist, i am still competing, this is a woman who is going to snowboard and flick in the air, and only when she damaged her heel and had two pins put in that she said ok, fine, i will back off, that you see these injuries but you winter olympians are tough as nails! it is the nature of the games as a whole, they are high adrenaline sports, we are all wa nted high adrenaline sports, we are all wanted to go out and do some indifferent which is why we do these sports. people call us in saying which is probably true but we love it. it is part of the fun. you will pretty much take knocks and hits along the way every day you are training so in a way it almost becomes just part and parcel of what you are doing. as you go down the skeleton track you see those collisions with the side so the whole body, and occasionally when you see the slow motion you almost to the present‘s body kind of come off the skeleton itself. how hard of those impacts as you are going down? to be honest, they look worse than
they are. unless you are quite big, i would say. for someone small like mei i would say. for someone small like me i was inside the outside diameter of my sled. how wide is that? probably 1.5feet of my sled. how wide is that? probably 1.5 feet and you have bombers at the side. 18 inches or so. you see people literally their shoulders and hips collide, don't they? sometimes people would come back up into the start of the top and they had shredded their sleeves and they had shredded their sleeves and arms and most of the skin and i would be no, i don't fancy that. but the hits you can take, quite a lot of them down the track and they carry on. i have come off my sled completely, flip it, flip back on again, so! completely, flip it, flip back on again, so i think the drama looks great but it isn't actually as bad when you are on the thing. can i ask a real layperson question, if you're sled fitted ergonomically to you? this led today, yes. this led the
bow riding, they are components led so they can be altered to be very, very specific. going back to salt la ke very specific. going back to salt lake 16 years ago we had pretty much a standard sled that the only thing you could modify was the subtle which is the bit that you buy in, that can move in and out on the angle can change and the weight of the sled —— saddle. angle can change and the weight of the sled -- saddle. that was all we can change. silly question, it is quite high—tech, but at the end you kind of running to a piece of foreign? that seems rather low—tech. —— secretary of there is no break. the break is people, you will see them coming up, they create wind, their feet is them coming up, they create wind, theirfeet is going them coming up, they create wind, their feet is going down and them coming up, they create wind, theirfeet is going down and it them coming up, they create wind, their feet is going down and it is uphill, but because the kind of speeds that we generate, you have to have something to complete little you down and that is why you get the foam. on the today, the margins are so fine but you have to think that lizzy yarnold knows what she is
doing, how to nail the third and final run. yeah, this race will be amazing, i love this track, you know, for a spectator you don't want to know from the first run who is going to win and it is probably great for the person at the front of the field but to watch the race, we have seen it in the loos, the man's skeleton, and we will see it in the lady's rates as well that it will come down to those 100 of a second —— luge. this is a four mile race, it is what you have to remember. you will not win that in the first 100 metres, even in the first half mile, it will come down to very last few runs. alex, you talked about 16 yea rs runs. alex, you talked about 16 years ago in terms of the technology and equipment, how much better are we in terms of global prospects at an old bt now? how much better is tea m an old bt now? how much better is team gb than perhaps 16 years ago? when i started, it was a bit, to be honest, quite gung ho, not very
professional, we didn't have support staff, my team before we came back into the olympics, there where the athletes and one coach and that was the team and is now the support staff, it is incredible, they have nutritionists, physios, a number of coaches so it has all become very professional and with that professionalism comes confidence and going out again and again repeatedly, beating an international field, just inspires everybody else declined to follow in their footsteps. here is hoping it works. and he started it all off! —— you. right away from the olympics now. four senior west bromwich albion players — jonny evans, gareth barry, jake livermore and boaz myhill — have apologised after breaking a curfew and allegedly stealing a taxi, from outside a fast—food restaurant in barcelona. the team are bottom of the premier league and were on a mid—season training break in spain. the players have released a joint statement apologising for the incident.
catalonia police interviewed them but didn't arrest the four men in the early hours of thursday morning. the club say the players will be subject to the full rigours of internal, disciplinary procedures. it was not what we wanted. you know, we have gone there to try and get ourselves up and ready for these running and this is obviously not ideal. they break curfew and that is unacceptable and ifeel a bit let down by that but we still got a training in and my focus is now on the game. remember, it's fa cup 5th round weekend. with leicester and chelsea, already through, you can watch the goals from their wins over sheffield united and hull on the bbc sport website. but finally, for now, roger federer has become the oldest player to become the world tennis number one 1a years after he first topped the rankings. he beat robin haase by two sets to one at the rotterdam open. it was actually a double fault from haase that handed match point
to the 36—year—old federer. but a very popular quarterfinal victory, and federer was presented with a special award to mark the occasion. i don't think there is anything in that. federer took to social media after the event, joking that it's the first he has heard of the record as he struggles with his hearing in his old age. he is only 36! though for a tennis player, yes, it is getting on a bit. no! it is young, youthful, wonderful, sprightly. an amazing career. here's sarah with a look at this morning's weather. 36 is really young, isn't it? ui yet to get there, of course! of course! spring chickens. through the course of the weekend
the weather world feel that springlike. quite a bit of cloud around today, but some breaks as well and sunshine on offer. this is how the sun was rising in kent and today probably the better day of the weekend in terms of staying dry with some brightness around. by tomorrow we will have more cloud and things will turn milder, with rain arriving in the west. this is the satellite image showing the cloud that's been spreading on. clearer skies behind, so they are pushing on across scotla nd so they are pushing on across scotland and northern ireland. further south and east we have the weather front which is lyn further south and east we have the weatherfront which is lyn moving and drifting southwards and eastwards, winning cloud patchy rain. it is vital that we should have some sunny spells. a chilly start in the south—east of england. a touch of frost and a few misty patch is around. then the band of cloud and patchy rain peters out as it moves southwards and eastwards.
clearer skies heading in from the north—west. still a few scattered showers for western scotland, northern ireland. double figures in the south should feel pleasant. this evening the weak weather front klister the east and then we have clear skies across the eastern side of the country. further west, more cloud of the country. further west, more clou d m oves of the country. further west, more cloud moves on from the atlantic with patchy outbreaks of rain for northern ireland, wales and the south—west. a cold and frosty start in the east. through the day tomorrow we have high—pressure holding on around the near continent and then this front comes from the atlantic, bringing a mild thing to the weather on sunday. you can see the weather on sunday. you can see the yellow colours indicating the westerly airflow. clear skies in east. fob patches on sunday morning. from the west of the cloud continues to build. outbreaks of rain to northern ireland and western scotland, pushing into western england and wales as well. further east we are more likely to stay dry.
temperatures 7—8 in the north—east of scotland. 10—11 further south and west. into monday, a cloudy day. the re m na nts of west. into monday, a cloudy day. the remnants of the front still hanging around. outbreaks of rain in scotla nd around. outbreaks of rain in scotland and perhaps the east of england and temperature rise highs around 10—11. we will start to see colder conditions moving on from the east later on monday. looking at what's happening through next week, the yellow colours we had gets cleared to the south and then what we will see is the blue colour is returning to the map. things will turn colder, with an easterly wind —— wind developing through next week. now it's time for newswatch. hello and welcome to newswatch, with me, samira ahmed. coming up: did bbc news make too much of the allegations against oxfam staff, damaging public confidence in the whole charity sector? and we know the bbc has new graphics
for its weather service, so why did viewers get this retro look last saturday? first, wednesday brought a sense of sickening familiarity with the news of a mass shooting at a high school in florida. a couple of hours later, jon sopel described the scene for the news at ten. yet again those terrifying pictures of children running for their lives as an active shooter is on the school premises, and running as fast as they can to try to get to safety. we understand that the shooter himself is now in custody, he's believed to be an 18—year—old former student of the school in browa rd county. he is now under arrest. over the next few hours it emerged that 17 people had been killed and bbc news provided plenty more detail and reaction, too much for some viewers. there had also been harrowing news
leading the six o'clock bulletin earlier that evening, after a man had been found guilty of murdering his niece last summer. and the attempted murder of a second woman. denise thought some of the description provided was inappropriate for an early evening broadcast. also on wednesday, the bbc‘s economics editor wrote online
about the economic performance of the european union, pointing out that growth in the region was at levels not seen since 2007. initially, the article had the headline ‘uk no longer shackled to a corpse', a reference to a comment once made by the eurosceptic mp douglas carswell, that britain's membership of the eu came at a significant financial cost. the headline was later changed, but not before several readers had tweeted their objections. and others wondered why the phrase didn't have quotation marks we put these points to bbc
news, and they told us: a couple of weeks ago, viewer russell moore contacted us with his thoughts on a practice that others have observed on bbc news. i would like to share my frustration at what i call suggestive reporting. the increasingly used bbc technique of shouting questions at politicians as they walk in and out of meetings. are you still in control of your party, prime minister? of course the person has no intention of answering or maybe hasn't even had the question, but that doesn't matter. we see the pictures, we hear the accusation and of course that is what sticks. it in itself that becomes the news and a new truth to be repeated. do you want to be the chancellor, foreign secretary? at best it is cheap, lazy, sensationalist and only worthy of tabloids, but at worst it can feel like a deliberate technique, using the suggestive technique
to plant ideas in our subconscious and in short to get the public to think and believe in a particular way. it is the bbc‘s job to report news, not created, and deliberately manipulated. so please, bbc news, stop doing this. at the end of last week it emerged that two british men believed to be members of an islamic state groups cells had been captured by syrian kurdish fighters. andy moore reported on the story for bbc news. the two britons captured by kurdish forces last month and questioned by the americans. together with another two men, they formed the kidnap gang known as the beatles, because they were usually masked and their captors could hear only their british accents. but the reference there and on the bbc news website to the gangs nickname, the beatles, annoyed some viewers:
over the past few years, reports of sexual exploitation and abuse by those in powerful positions have hit institutions such as parliament, the church, the film industry, the world of sport and the bbc. and on saturday the headlines in the times newspaper focused on the charity sector. their investigation found that in 2011 four members of staff at oxfam had been sacked and three others resigned over charges of using local women, some under age, sex after the earthquake in haiti. further revelations followed and the bbc has been following up the story with angus crawford
reporting on sunday evening. the government's now demanding every charity receiving taxpayers' money disclose all past and present cases of sexual misconduct. a scandal affecting one charity is now threatening to engulf the entire sector. the government has always defended this budget by saying, look, we are spending it better, we are making it less waste, all those kinds of things. i think it is a little harder for the government to make that argument when you have some oxfam workers spending taxpayers money on orgies with young prostitutes. james langdale in the studio there. but some members of the audience took exception to the way the story was covered, with one viewer who preferred to remain and grace dalton echoed that in this telephone message she left us. i really feel that the bbc is not anywhere near careful enough to make clear that this scandal relates to a small number of people who no longer work for oxfam.
i mean the report that was aired last night said that this one scandal was threatening to engulf the whole sector. it's only threatening to engulf the whole sector because of the way that media outlets like yourself are reporting it. i would not mind at all if the government were to stop giving money to oxfam, but if people give less to all foreign aid charities because the bbc makes it seem as though foreign aid is now to be associated with sex scandals like this, people will die, less aid money will be given, and people will die. there was no one available from bbc news to discuss those concerns, but instead they gave us this statement in response. finally, we discussed on last week's
programme the changes introduced to the bbc‘s television weather forecasts, with the head of bbc weather describing the sophisticated new graphics now in operation. so it was something of surprise to those watching bbc one on saturday evening see this following the end of the news bulletin. now we are going to take a look at the weekend's weather. there will be some heavy rain which will move eastward this evening, bringing snow to northern hills. after the rain clears, there will be strong winds that will be
sweeping in from the west, bringing wintry showers. and so it continued, leaving julie to ask: so, was this decidedly low—tech approach a deliberate reversion to presentation styles of 50 years ago? no, as it turned out. the bbc news press team tweeted this explanation. thank you for your comments this week, we always welcome your opinions on bbc news and current affairs. if you would like them to be heard on the programme or even to appear
yourself, you can contact us: do have a look at our website, where ou can watch previous interviews and discussions we have recorded. that's all from us. we'll be back to hear your thoughts about bbc news coverage again next week. hello this is breakfast, with naga munchetty and charlie stayt. donald trump visits survivors of the florida high school shootings. the us president and the first lady have been to the hospital where the injured were taken following the attack. the first funerals have been held amid an outpouring of grief and anger from the families of the victims. one british family caught up in the horror tell breakfast that they refuse to live in fear. as crazy as it might sound, we want to go back. we want on what those halls, we want to bounce back and we
