when the suspect, nikolas cruz, opened fire, killing 17 people. barbara plett—usher reports. the funerals have begun. these students were saying goodbye to a 14—year—old classmate. they and their parents have been calling to action so 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 ourgun 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 a stark question — how can we keep our children safe? and the people here willjudge their president on how he responds to that. 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 glass at me. now, haiti's president jovenel 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 19 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. john mcmanus, bbc news. 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. 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 fiance meghan markle. let's speak to our political correspondent matt cole who is in our london newsroom for us this morning. this is an important day for ukip
after so many headlines surrounding its leader? that's right. good morning. ukip very much a party in turmoil. henry bolton, the fourth leader in 18 months or so, they may be looking for a fifth by the end of the day. henry bolton has said if the day. henry bolton has said if the vote goes against him he will stand down. he is head—to—head with the national executive who passed a vote of no confidence in him after revelations came out that his girlfriend had sent racist tweets about prince harry's beyonce. henry bolton said he was leaving his girlfriend, only to then make it not so girlfriend, only to then make it not so clear if that was the case. he says that the party's executive is against him. he wants to change the structure of the party if he stays on, but it is a big if. it comes
down to how many ukip members turn up down to how many ukip members turn up to vote. if the vote goes against him, he says he will stand down and another ukip leadership campaign will begin. thank you. theresa may is expected to urge the eu 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. our chief international correspondent lyse doucet joins us now from munich, what can we expect from the prime minister today? what should we expect? this speech is happening in, what, 20 minutes? yes, i think we are going to get a message from theresa may in this grand hotel behind me that britain is not going anywhere. even though brexit is about leaving the structures of the european union, britain believes it should play a
role at all of the world's may in ta bles role at all of the world's may in tables and the rest of the world should recognise what the world brings. security, intelligence cooperation, defence matters, these are the things that theresa may will emphasise. other intelligence officials have said brexit or no brexit, we need to work together. there are common threats and they need modern way. we will get analysis from you in the next hour. theresa may will be speaking in 20 minutes and we know you will be across that. 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's 8:10am. let's return to our main story this morning and the news that president trump has been talking to the survivors of wednesday's florida school shooting in which 17 people were killed. earlier, we spoke to lewis mizen who moved from coventry to parkland three years ago. he told us where he was when the first shots were fired. i was on the other side of the school. it was towards the end of the day, so maybe there were 15 minutes left before the end of school. the fire drill had just been called, so i was with my friends. i grab my backpack and i was walking down the stairs and someone started
screaming code red, code red, which means there is an active shooter. we thought it was a drill. we got back into the classroom and checked iphones and text our friends to ask them what was going on because it was strange having two drills in one day. then we got confirmation from the police department that there was a situation at douglas. our teacher moved us into the closet. there were maybe 20 of us crammed in a was it for about an hour maybe 20 of us crammed in a was it foraboutan hourand maybe 20 of us crammed in a was it for about an hour and a half before the army reserves came and got us out. we had an idea of what was going on. we thank social media. but because they were so much information coming in, we couldn't discern between what was true and what was a rumour because we we work —— we were being told that there was one shooter and then there were more
than one shooter —— there were very shooters and 50 people have been killed. we were in the area and we saw the hundreds of police vehicles heading towards the school so we knew something had happened and it was serious. we were able to contact him. we knew he had gone back into the classroom. at the point that they realised it was real and the teacher had taken them into this huge cupboards, lewis lost his mobile phone service. so we now could not contact him. we are now watching live tv when they are telling us the shooter is still at large, he is on the campers, they have not got him yet. for that period of time it was just unbelievably terrifying. we had vigils yesterday. we had to 30 pm one which was for students. a friend of mine came up and sobbed in my
chest because she lost her best friend. the one thing i will say is that thejuniors friend. the one thing i will say is that the juniors and the seniors, the older kids, this is our home, oui’ the older kids, this is our home, our high school, our city and it is a personal attack for us. the people i have been talking to, as crazy as it might sound, we want to go back. we wa nt it might sound, we want to go back. we want to walk the halls. we want to bounce back and say that we might be scarred, but it has not beaten cars. i know it will be harderfor the freshman ‘s and sophomores because they are younger than ours and it was the building. 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. i think when people began to realise it was him it was one we will finally be out of the school and me and almost all the other students were making
oui’ all the other students were making our way towards a road that was maybe a mile to the east of the school because that is where our pa rents were school because that is where our parents were picking us up and that is when his men started to circulate, and his picture. i recognise the name in the picture, i had seen him before and there has been a lot of talk about him because he is the shooter and that is the saddest part of all this because out of all the things that have happened on wednesday, his name is the one thatis on wednesday, his name is the one that is the most worthless. 17 people have lost their lives, 17 bright futures, but it is his name thatis bright futures, but it is his name that is in the papers and that's the name everyone is that is in the papers and that's the name everyone is talking about and that's the saddest part because he doesn't deserve any of it. lewis and his father the speaking to us from florida recounting some of their thoughts as they reflect on what happened on wednesday. here's sarah with a look
at this morning's weather. good morning. quite a chilly start to the day, particularly to the south and east. this was captured at hampton court. not a bad day, there should be some spells of sunshine. a dry story for most of us, but by tomorrow more clout and although things are turning milder, rain will arrive in the west. overnight we have had a lot of cloud streaming its way in. clearer skies pushing in from the north west and clearer skies across the south east, but this were the front is sitting through the central slice of the country, bringing patchy outbreaks of rain that will push slowly southwards and eastwards before it peters out. clearer skies further
north west across the country. for scotla nd north west across the country. for scotland and northern ireland one or two showers, falling snow over the hills. this evening, this week whether front clears away towards the east and then we have clear and dry conditions for central and eastern parts. clad patchy rain for the west. frost free in the west, further ease the subzero temperatures. likely to be mist and fog to start sunday morning. high—pressure sitting across the near continent, but this warm front is coming in from the atlantic. yellow colour is returning to the map with westerly or south—westerly winds. a chilly start with the frost and fog. further west, the cloud will bring patchy outbreaks of rain to northern ireland. western parts of england and wales also seeing
rain. further east it will be dry and brighter with temperatures as high as ten or 11 in the south. if we had into monday, a fairly cloudy and murky day. we have the remnants of sunday's front. a great day with temperatures between seven and 11 degrees, but then things will change after monday as we draw in the winds from a different direction. the milderair from a different direction. the milder air moves away towards the south—west and this easterly flow of airwill south—west and this easterly flow of air will develop into next week, so air will develop into next week, so a real drop air will develop into next week, so a realdrop in air will develop into next week, so a real drop in temperatures with that breeze developing. although it will be a mild start to the new week, things are going to change and it will become colder during the second of next week. it's exactly a week since 29 —year—old liam colgan
vanished in the early hours while on his brother's stag weekend in hamburg. liam colgan who is 29 and from inverness, vanished in the early hours of last saturday. in a moment, we'll speak to alan pearson a friend of the family but first, let's speak to liam's brother eamonn, who is in hamburg this morning. thank you for talking to us. you are still in hamburg because after this night out, liam went missing. can you tell us what happened? we arrived on the friday morning... we are struggling with hearing you properly at the moment. hold on for a moment and we will sort it out and come back to you.
alan, you were part of the group. 18 a few together celebrating, it was a stag night. 18 of us joining a man and liam for what should have been one of the best weekends of their lives. we were staying in a hostel a few miles away from the nightlife in hamburg. we arrived on the friday morning and got lunch. some of us we nt morning and got lunch. some of us went back to the hostel to rest and then we were meeting to dinner at a brewery at 6pm. liam led the way to the brewery. he had researched the city inside out and knew where he was going. we had dinner at the brewery and then we headed towards a street in hamburg with a lot of bars. it's the place was that trips to go. there was nothing unusual
about this night. it was a group of quys about this night. it was a group of guys celebrating. no unusual behaviour? absolutely no unusual behaviour. i would go as far as to say that liam was having a great time. he was probably a bit relu cta nt time. he was probably a bit reluctant to do this type of thing. he is quite shy in his nature, but he stepped up to it and i think he enjoyed it. pick up the point when it became apparent to the rest of the group that he was missing. it became apparent to the rest of the group that he was missingm was towards the end of the night out. the group became dispersed around several bars. the group of 18 people that were going home, people at different bars and i believe amen realise liam wasn't there when they left. —— eamon. the assumption was
that he had gone home was in another bar. and at what point did you realise there was no accounting for him? i can speak personally and say it was eight o'clock the next morning. some of the people came in and mention that liam was not there. he's not the kind of guy to stay out all night partying. let's give technology and mother go and we will try to speak to liam's. can you hear us try to speak to liam's. can you hear us now? yes, i can hear you. you are still in hamburg. what information, what evidence, what efforts are you being told about regarding font your brother? we are still struggling to hear. can you bring us up—to—date
with what is happening? liam's product is there. liam's fiance's there. in practical terms product is there. liam's fiance's there. in practicalterms how product is there. liam's fiance's there. in practical terms how are things working? all of us have a fair idea of what we think should be going on and the guys out there will no more, but i can say that as an outsider looking in, we are surprised at what has gone on. the initial reaction to liam's disappearance was not great. the
family received almost mocking replies from one of the police officers. was it because it was a stag party and the assumption being, and correct me if i am wrong, drunken guys together, someone may have fallen asleep, it happens often ? have fallen asleep, it happens often? the natural assumption was that he had too much to drink and got lifted by the police, but this was midnight on a saturday night and liam have not turned up for things he had organised. for one of the police officers to say, i'lljust jump police officers to say, i'lljust jump ina police officers to say, i'lljust jump in a helicopter and other look was not helpful. it must be difficult for those members of the family who aren't there, who are just waiting. that's right. eamon is living and breathing this 24 hours a day. with his knowledge as a police
officer he is asking the right questions. he's asking why some of the cctv was not reviewed until thursday this week. we understand that the cctv from the bark, be reviewed because the manager can't rememberthe reviewed because the manager can't remember the password. he reviewed because the manager can't rememberthe password. he is trying to force the issue on some of these things. what plans are being made is regarding the wedding. is it not a consideration? it's not. the main issue is defiant liam and bring him home safely and hopefully it will be before the wedding in two weeks. thank you for being with us and apologies that we could not get to eamon in any more detail. thank you very much. and good luck. you're watching breakfast from bbc news.
time now for a look at the newspapers. good morning. you were deep in your newspaper there. i was morning, good morning. you were deep in your newspaper there. iwas morning, not the death of facebook, but the fact that young people are upset that older people are using facebook. you are looking directly at charlie! it's anybody really over the age of 25. another the lead back on the sofa, so i'll make the most of it. one young guy has said that once
pa rents one young guy has said that once pa re nts got one young guy has said that once parents got involved that was it. facebook is due to lose 3 million young people just this year and that's from the uk and the us very reason. they are migrating to different platforms. snapchat, instagram, which is owned by facebook. it's because of the digital platforms that respond to different demographics and trends. facebook took in $41 billion in revenue. it's huge star. they were so revenue. it's huge star. they were so successful because they were new and exciting and the reality is that that can't continue because someone else comes along. that's right. people started using it for different reasons. it's good for
fundraising, health groups, you hear people now talking about the grandmothers being on facebook. what's the neck story? i'm quite interested in this story you have picked up because we have been talking about it all week. young people getting on the housing ladder. at the end of the week ben was saying people could not get onto the housing ladder because they are not earning enough. what is the story? something has gone wrong. you speak to everyone involved in the housing conundrum, ministers, estate agents, buyers. we can send the car
into space, but no one can work out how to make living affordable. renting costs £1000 a year more than cover the mortgage on one. renting was the option if you could not afford to buy a home, but buying is almost impossible. someone was telling me about a council estate where i grew up where it is £1000 a month to rent a basic council flat. and a lot of people out of necessity are putting the decision back. with renting, you are looking at this criterion out of two months rent upfront, one month's deposit. three
months worth of rentjust to rent. it's stopping people from renting and buying. you are stuck between a rock and a hard place. there is a fairamount of mr rock and a hard place. there is a fair amount of mr roger in the programme today. we are talking about hairstyles from the past. did you ever have a mullet?|j did you ever have a mullet? i did. if you go on social media, you will see that mike's hairstyle is interesting. our correspondent has been looking at this hairstyle exhibition. the reason i say it's a period of nostalgia because you think about when you were younger and had lots of the. now you could
be fined £500 for climbing a tree. this is wandsworth council in london. they have rules and stipulations about what you can and can't do in the park, like flying kites. metal detectors, you could have your equipment taken away, but climbing trees, is that not about being a kid? enid blyton, harry potter. it says anyone clambering up a tree without reasonable excuse. just having fun is a reasonable excuse. you might see a squirrel and wa nt to excuse. you might see a squirrel and want to go up a tree. trees are synonymous with high jinks and joe perry. stay with us, headlines coming up.
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 cooperation 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. 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. those are the main stories this morning. mike is here now. one of thejoys of the timing of the winter olympics is in the morning, we can bring people use of medals. already we have had a medal, but‘s second, and looking ahead to the rest of the day, it could be britain's best ever day. but our
chances hopefully for a lease christie this time, then you've got two chances with laura deas and lizzy yarnold in the skeleton later on. we need two more to make it britain's best ever day. would it be presumptuous to say it is super saturday? people are already saying that yes. the thing i found people are already saying that yes. the thing ifound most people are already saying that yes. the thing i found most fascinating about the winter olympics is the psychology behind it. elise christie was in tears a few days ago when she failed... we'll talk about that anemometer. —— ina we'll talk about that anemometer. —— in a moment. 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 rails 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 mother to mother, askin honed her skills on the slopes of maine when she was just three. before the final over three runs, askin was pushed from the podium. this had to be flawless. biggest run of her life sta rts flawless. biggest run of her life starts now. every grind, every twist andjumpjiving with starts now. every grind, every twist and jump jiving with jeopardy. she telescope good enough for third, but could anyone deny her some slopestyle silverware? 0h, could anyone deny her some slopestyle silverware? oh, no, she's down! great britain's izzy atkin ta kes down! great britain's izzy atkin takes the bronze stop blue there we re takes the bronze stop blue there were tonnes of big names in the field. i was standing at the bottom after my third and final run, i had skied the best i could. i wasjust waiting for those last three or four goals to drop, and my heart was racing. but i can't believe it.
well, believe it, you are an olympic bronze medallist. 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. they beat great britain 11—5. it means britain are now out of the top four places so as thing stands they wouldn't make the semifinals but they have four matches to make the cut and turn it all around. elise christie returns to action later this morning after falling in the 500m short track speed skating final. 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 teamate 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. elise christie returns to action later this morning after falling in the 500m short track speed skating final. she goes in the 1500 metres. we can cross to south korea now and speak to former short track speed skate world champion wilf o'reilly. hi, wilf. we all saw the tears and felt christie's pain the other day. how is she feeling now ahead of this much longer either end? —— this much along the event? well, i think what's really supposing compared to four years ago for the people that will have seen what happened then, she fell and it was basically a snowball effect, just got worse and worse and worse, u nfortu nately got worse and worse and worse, unfortunately now, she went down in the first distance, the 1500 metres this evening, but in the period between the races, she's actually doing very, very well. she was very positive the day afterwards, she's
been doing interviews, she was bubbly and chatty in training, and i would say she's back up where she would say she's back up where she would need to be to be in contention for a medal this evening. that's brilliant to hear. and yet, this sport shows no mercy. so often anything can happen. what does she have to do, and she do anything to prevent a repeat? well, i think to ta ke prevent a repeat? well, i think to take every race as it comes. she's in the fifth heat, the three fastest skaters from her heat will qualify for the semifinal, then the two fastest skaters or first and second skaters in the semifinal will qualify for the final. so i'm quite confident she will get into the final, then of course it's anyone's race. she is in fact the world champion at this, even though she says it's not her best distance. i think she has a good chance of winning a medal and what is quite nice as well is now team gb have in
fa ct two bronze nice as well is now team gb have in fact two bronze medals, it's making the pressure for her that team gb may be subconsciously putting on her, it's been taken away as well. good morning, what's so fascinating is the psychology, and how these athletes deal with this, and of course elise christie dealing with disappointment, now having to step up disappointment, now having to step up to the plate, but also this controversy about the skeleton team's costumes, their uniforms, and kind of sniping amongst other teams. you're dough—mac, you hear the whispers amongst the teams, can you give us any insight? i haven't been following the story in any detail. of course, you're always trying to get a little advantage, whether it's your racing suit, and our wills and regulations which all sports have to adhere to, presumably the rules and regulations are allowing this to happen. so therefore there is no reason, maybe we are just making a
mountain out of a mole hill, if you like. i don't think there is any reason, from what i'm hearing, the whispers as you put it, i don't think there is any reason we should make a big thing out of it. we will have to leave it there. fingers crossed this time for elise christie. elise christie trains at the national ice centre in nottingham, which is where the bbc‘s colin hazelden is this morning, getting the thoughts of those who know elise well. hello, colin. how are you doing? we are standing here in the middle of the ice, this is the training ice pad at the nottingham ice centre. surrounded by the nottingham ice racing club. this is what happens when elise does well, people respond, want to come out and do short track speed skating. so there are youngsters out here, maybe there is the next elise summer in the middle of all of this. richard is here, and olympian in his own right
with team gb, one of the academy coaches here, so one dealt with some of your young stars are here, what does it mean when elise does well?|j think does it mean when elise does well?” think speaking this morning to the nottingham club, they said they had five new people come down last session already. she would like to mena medal but already she is inspired to many people to come down and try the sport. it's remarkable, it's not just her, and try the sport. it's remarkable, it's notjust her, there is a whole group of people rating in the 15 —— the 1500 and in the men's 1000. group of people rating in the 15 —— the 1500 and in the men's1000. how will you feel watching that, having been there four years ago? it's less exciting than the olympics comes on. being an olympian myself, it's a bit of mixed feelings. —— it's always exciting when the olympics comes on. i'm really happy with my role now, coaching the next generation. seeing my old team— mates coaching the next generation. seeing my old team—mates competing and trying to win a medal. seen this next generation out on the ice, are
you confident we have the stars of the future coming through? we definitely put things in place, we have a great pathway programme set up have a great pathway programme set up with the launch of the academy la st up with the launch of the academy last year, it's putting things in place and hopefully, just by increasing the base of the athletes, eventually we will get a couple more top stars. thank you very much indeed forjoining us. so, they are gathering here in nottingham to watch elise christie and the other skaters go in the short track speed skating event so i dare say they will lodge —— they will be watching on the big screen here as well. if you fancyjoining us in nottingham, they have public skate going on from 11 till five so he can get yourself onto the ice and see how fast you are as well. thanks, colin. that's all from the sport for now. let's take you straight to munich, theresa may making a speech...
taking this opportunity to establish a new security partnership that can keep our people safe now and in the yea rs keep our people safe now and in the years ahead. so, let me start with how we ensure security within europe. the threat we face do not recognise the borders of individual nations or discriminate between them. we all in this room have shared the pain and heartbreak of terrorist atrocities at home. its mistake years since the despicable attack on westminster, followed by further attacks in manchester and london. these people don't care if they kill and maim or is in some berliners, londoners or mancunians, because it's the common values that we all share which they seek to attack and defeat. but i say we will not let them. when these atrocities occurred, people look to us as leaders to provide the response. we
must ensure that nothing prevents us from fulfilling our first duty as leaders to protect our citizens. and we must find the practical ways to ensure the cooperation to do so. we have done so before. when justice and home affairs ceased to be intergovernmental and bob —— and become a shared eu competence, there we re become a shared eu competence, there were some in the uk who would have had us adopt the eu approach wholesale, just as there were some wholesale, just as there were some who would have had asked rejected outright. as home secretary i was determined to find a practical and pragmatic way in which the uk and eu could continue to cooperate on our common security. and that's why i reviewed each provision in terran and successfully made the case for the uk to back into those that were clearly in our national interests. through the relationship we've developed, the uk has been at the forefront of shipping the practical and legal arrangements that underpin
our internal security cooperation. and our contribution to those arrangements is vital in protecting european citizens in cities right across our continent. first, our practical cooperation. including our expedited extradition and mutual assistance budget, it means wanted a convicted serious criminals and the evidence to support their convictions moves seamlessly between the uk and eu member states. so when a serious terrorists there were terrorist was found living in the uk, a young man believed to have been radicalised in syria and was wa nted been radicalised in syria and was wanted for terrorism offences in france, there was no delay in ensuring he was extradited back to france and brought to justice. he has one of 10,000 people the uk has extradited to the european arrest warrant. in fact for every person arrested on a european arrest warrant issued by the uk, the uk arrests eight on european arrest wa rra nts arrests eight on european arrest warrants issued by other member
states. the european arrest warrant has also played a crucial role in between our law cooperation between our law enforcement agencies... theresa may making her speech at the munich security confidence dubbed conference. the thing she is focusing on is the eu's relationship with countries once they leave the key. of course in light of the uk, she's saying political doctrine and ideology would hamper post—brexit security. she's very much concerned that the relationship the eu has with any country that leaves the eu will still maintain a good, tight security relationship. you may have noticed at the beginning, she made reference to terrorist attacks throughout europe. we will pick up on some of the analysis of what she said and try and pick through in the next hour.
good morning, lets doctor sarah and find out what's happening with the weather. —— lets talk to sarah. i thought the temperatures would be bumped upa i thought the temperatures would be bumped up a little over the coming days? quite chilly start of the morning. we have got some scenes like this, frost and fog around, but things are fairly mild through the weekend. but we could see a return to something more wintry as we head through next week. we will start with this morning, this is the scene in hampton court. we have some fault and frost arrived, a chilly start particularly in the south east. many parts of the country sing a bit of sunshine before and rain arrived. here is a satellite image. you can see the cloud that has been working its way in overnight through the early hours of this morning too. on
either side, we clearer skies but this frontal system is bringing the band of cloud and outbreaks of patchy rain. so we had the band of cloud, sunlight patchy rain first, arriving through the midlands, perhaps into parts of east anglia. but much of the south east staying fine and sunny. for the rest of the country, clearer conditions, a few showers moving in for the west of scotland. falling as snow over the higher ground but many places staying dry. double figures in the south today. this evening and tonight, the cloud clears away to the east. for the eastern half of the east. for the eastern half of the country, keeping clearer skies. quite a shock frost and some fog patches as well. further west, not as cold under the client. sunday's weather dominated by two things. high—pressure keeping dry unsettled weather towards from the west, this front moving in, it is going to be bringing with it milder air, the
winds coming in from a westerly or south—westerly direction. it is towards the least we have the chilly start to the day with some frost and fog, but there should be some sunshine across eastern england, eastern scotland too. workload for the rest of the country with outbreaks of rain. western scotland anne western preserving them and wales, particularly during the afternoon. further research are more likely to stay dry. temperatures in double figures towards the south and west. fast forward into monday, another fairly cloudy day with some patchy outbreaks of rain, particularly in the east by the time we get to monday. further west, a drier story compared to sunday. temperatures around 11 or 12 with that milder air, cooler across the east. then we will see the winds change direction, so the mild air gets squeezed away towards the south west. the winds start to come in from the east. that will be bringing a different feel to the weather as we head through the course of next
week. although it will be starting off on week. although it will be starting offona week. although it will be starting off on a mild note, the easterly wind develops, be prepared for something more wintry through the week. always stay prepared, never put those layers away! thanks very much, we will see you later. if you are a working parent with children aged between nine and 11, from this week, you can get up to £2000 a year to help cover the cost of childcare. there is already provision for those with younger children. sounds good, but there are warnings that some parents could be worse off if they claim. let's get more detail now from paul lewis from radio 4's moneybox programme. this is a little comfort, isn't it? it can seem it, but let's extend the scheme because at its simplest it is quite simple. if you are working pa rent quite simple. if you are working parent or if there are too matter of view, if you're a working couple, for every eight and you spend on childcare, the government will top it up by £2. there is a maximum
government subsidy of £2000, it up by £2. there is a maximum government subsidy of e2000, and people had been talking to have said that they will pretty soon hit that because that means it is costing them £1000. but you both have to be working or if you're a single parent, you have to work at least 16 hours. and you mustn't earn more than £100,000 a year. that's not going to affect very many people but thatis going to affect very many people but that is the upper limit. but it should be straightforward, you go online, you get a subsidy. are there problems attached? who will it not suit? there can be problems. the probability is that i counted seven different childcare schemes and they are different in different parts of the uk. this one is uk wide. the problem really is, if you already get childcare vouchers, you will find that you can't get those. more important, if you get child tax credits or you get universal credit,
those benefits for people in lower paid work, those benefits willjust stop the moment you claim this tax—free childcare. and with universal credit, i'm told it can be very ha rd if universal credit, i'm told it can be very hard if not impossible then to get it back. so it is important that pa rents get it back. so it is important that parents check carefully which is better for them. but where do people go for advice on this stuff? again, that's a subject of some controversy. the government has a very good website called childcare choices a couple on its website, and that does lead you through this, but i've been taking to a reform group who have said it does deep —— it does give you a calculator to bracket which is best, but it excludes universal credit, and it really is those people have to be careful. the reform group says really the only place to get good advice on this is your local citizens' advice bureau, and we know how busy they are. so it is possible
that some people will make a claim, then find they are worse off. but i don't want to put anybody off. i think for most people, it is a good thing, it is a great help with childcare costs. but if you're on universal credit particularly, take ca re before universal credit particularly, take care before applying, because you probably won't be any better off with it. what is the government saying? the government say that if they inadvertently claim it, they say the tax calculator on the website will actually work out which is best for you. but again, there is some controversy about whether that includes universal credit or not. but i would go on the government website, look at it, think about it, if you get universal credit, be very careful because you will lose that and it might leave you were soft. thank you very much for that. more moneybox at midday on bbc radio 2 for. —— radio 4. more than 100,000 critically endangered orangutans have been
killed in borneo since 1999. the island is one of the endangered apes‘ main habitats. researchers say while deforestation is partly to blame, a large number have been killed as punishment for raiding crops. let‘s discuss this now with catherine barton, a field conservation manager. good morning. isay good morning. i say good good morning. isay good morning, this is awful. these numbers, 100,000 killed since 1999. we understand how precious these annals are, what is happening on the ground in borneo that isn‘t understood? why this retaliation, so to speak? just for being. this number that has, it is such an alarming number. we knew that this was happening and we knew the decline of the orangutans was happening, but these numbers, it has been quite shocking. what‘s happening on the ground is, two big threats, one of these is
deforestation and defragmentation of habitat, something that has been known to conservationists for a number of years. and the deforestation is because they need to use the land for what? a lot of the time it is agriculture. so oil palm plantation. palm oil is found in about 50% of supermarket products in the uk. so, oil palm plantations. and another big part of it is just changing the land at the macca. but we also found that the killing is a much bigger risk than we originally anticipated. hunting of orangutans. it's anticipated. hunting of orangutans. it‘s thought that over 100,000 orangutans have been killed over the last 15 years. what is the last 15 yearsm for hunting orangutans?l motivation for hunting orangutans?l couple of different reasons. it can be for food, hunters can go into the forest, they may be looking for deer
or pigs, but they can also take orangutans as food... but a large pa rt orangutans as food... but a large part of it is this conflict with orangutans, so can of human wildlife conflict. orangutans come into plantations and often, people will retaliate, it could be anger, could be because they are scared, but they will retaliate and there were —— and the orangutans are killed in that way. so, what's the answer? we see wildlife programmes you, we don‘t have access to beautiful animals such as this or this? is it education, or investment? thomas segregate or to manage the living of these two societies so to speak? dough—mac there are different solutions and i think it‘s solutions. there are solutions that
will work. for example, sustainable palm oil. industry and conservationists all come together and the aim of that is to make sure the oil palm is grown on the ground ina the oil palm is grown on the ground in a sustainable way, with less detriment to the wildlife in the environment. borneo, orangutans are synonymous with that country, something people are familiar with. why is the country not doing more? are there rules, is it illegal to hunt orangutans? it's such the economy. now, they shouldn‘t be killing orangutans, and those
companies who are satisfied should not be killing them. privatising the benefits of that of protecting... exactly, and there is a lot more work that needs to be done to actually work with communities and work on this human wildlife conflict issue to make sure these killings are not actually happening any more. catherine, thank you very much. still to come this morning... ahead of their world boxing super series semifinal clash, chris eubankjunior has vowed to send his opponent george groves into retirement. we‘ll ask if his fighting talk punches any weight, when former world champion barry mcguigan joins us on the sofa. stay with us, headlines coming up. 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 to walk those halls, we want to bounce back and we want to say that we might be scarred, but it has not beaten us. good morning it‘s saturday 17th february. also this morning:
