warnings are in place — as temperatures are gradually expected to rise. in south—east london, police were called after people stuck on trains, started jumping on to the tracks. and the rail line dawlish hasjust closed due to flooding because of high tides. good morning it's saturday 3rd march. also this morning: facing up to "some hard facts" the prime minister says neither side will get everything they want from brexit but argues the uk and eu are close to a deal on transition. the remote colony of penguins — discovered thanks to their droppings. in sport it is going to the wire for england
and new zealand. the kiwis are fighting back. and we'll have the weather. it is looking like a cold and frosty start, a big risk of ice, take it easy on the road. there will be more snow to come across northern areas but will not be as heavy as in recent days and will start to turn less cold from the south—west through the weekend. good morning. first, our main story. weather warnings for snow and ice remain in place across much of the uk — that's despite temperatures being expected to gradually rise in many areas. 2,000 homes are without power and motorists and rail passengers face further disruption on the road and rail network. in the last few minutes the rail line and dawlish has been closed again due to flooding because of high tides. last night, police were called to lewisham in south—east london as passengers, who'd been stuck on a train, opened the doors and climbed onto the tracks, as simon clemison
reports. after the big freeze, the big four. temperatures in wales could reach as high as seven in some parts. but problems for the public transport sector continue after what has been a difficult night. the moment some rail passengers dispensed with the train. we have been stuck on the train for 2.5 hours, luckily now we can walk down the tracks, as you can see, everyone is getting out from the train, we are just outside lewisham station. the operator has warned people against walking on the line, and said turning off the power cause further delays. looking forward to getting home and having a cup of tea. flood warnings were in place today, both here and the south—west coast
where the railway has been closed once again, and in the north—east. in devon, hospitals have been treating the injured. there have been appeals to owners of four by four vehicles to help patients and staff. workers continued overnight at one hospital. we could not have coped without the four by four drivers, you guys have been amazing. all eyes will be on the transport network again this morning. heathrow is to run an almost full schedule but many rail services will be disrupted. let's find out what the situation is like in the north east of england this morning — our reporter, alison freeman is in alnwick. behind you alice and i can see a few
vehicles on the road. what is the situation? yes, this is still very deserted when you consider that this is the main route from the north—east of england up to scotland, and it really isn't fully open yet. that's because the head more northerly on the ai we still have problems. the road has been cleared, and larger snowdrifts are being blown across from the fields back to the road, and in some places only one carriageway is open. to combat that the police are escorting convoys of traffic to get the most important people where they need to go. the other problem they are facing is that people are trying to bypass the ai altogether, and on country roads, and when they do that they are getting stuck. mountain rescue have been out and about rescuing people who have got into trouble. but with less now expected today people's concerns are turning today people's concerns are turning to ice on the road. we've seen some vehicles slipping around, and as
well as the eyes we are thinking about flood warnings. 0n the north—east coast flood warnings in place from sunderland to whitley bay because of spring tides and strong winds, we know it is affecting the south—west of england as well. but some good news for motorists, the m62 reopen slightly earlier this morning, but again the message from emergency services is pleased to travel unless you have to. they don't want to be trying to help stranded people when they could be doing other work instead. 0ur reporter, tomos morgan is in cardiff — what's the situation this morning? the snow has finished falling here this morning but the wind has picked up. it is bitterly cold in this area of cardiff. behind me the train station, no trains running there yesterday. the majority of routes
across rails were suspended yesterday. the airport was closed. this road is typical of some of the main roads through suburban areas of cardiff, across the high streets. some areas of roads are completely covered in snow, we have seen hardly any vehicles passes, and one that did not start coming out of a residential road just around the corner. south wales fire service have said they have had a number of calls from people saying we had frozen water pipes or burst pipes because of the cold weather, and the emergency services as we just heard have also been affected. this morning i saw one woman in her scrubs one comeback not out after a 12 hour shift. 0ur weather warning still in place until 11 o'clock four eyes. as we're hearing today, snow is not
necessarily as much of a problem today, the issue is winds, eyes and flooding in some places. chris fawkes will have a full weather forecast in around 10 minutes time. the prime minister's speech on britain leaving the european union has been given a cautious welcome by both the leave and remain wings of her own party. theresa may set out her vision of the uk's future trading relationship with the eu and said all sides would have to make concessions. 0ur political correspondent tom barton is in the london newsroom. quite an achievement to have people from both sides seem relatively positive things, but in reality, what progress was made? this was a big moment from the prime minister's perspective. laying out provision of the future of britain's relationship with the ee you. our message was that she wants britain to make a clean break with those big
eu institutions, the single market and the customs union, but beyond that she once the relationship to be as close as possible. there is a big question over how well that message will go down with eu leaders. they we re will go down with eu leaders. they were pa rt of will go down with eu leaders. they were part of her audience. but she was busy trying to unite her party. and at this stage that seems to have been as excess. a positive and cautious welcome from both sides. the outspoken brexiteers jacob rees mogg welcome the speech saying that some will have concerns but saying that now is not the time to nit—pick. the remaining campaigner anna soubry describe this week as a step forward but warned that negotiations would be extremely competitive. tom, thank you. two men have been arrested by police investigating an explosion in leicester that killed five people. the men, both in their 30s, and from east anglia, are being held on suspicion
of conspiracy to cause an explosion. three other men, also in their 30s, were arrested on suspicion of manslaughter on wednesday and continue to be questioned by detectives. and continue to be the body which sets the rules for world football is expected to approve the use of video replay technology throughout the sport when it meets in zurich today. the system has been used on a trial basis in several countries, including some cup matches in england. but there are concerns that it disrupts the flow of a game while confusing officials. gary 0ban has told bbc news about his excitement at the prospect of landing his first academy awards. he is tipped to win best actor for his role as winston churchill in the film darkest hour. speaking ahead of the oscars ceremony in los angeles he said it was an honour to play the former minister. i am feeling, i'm feeling very good about it. sunday would be, these things will be what they will be, they either they call
your name or they don't. but the ride has been, the ride has been enjoyable, and to be recognised for playing winston churchill, it is... the prize in itself. i think is in with a very good chance of winning that one. not all heroes wear capes — some prefer the altogether more modest high—vis vest. they have been out in force in the streets of bristol keeping people safe in the snow as breakfast‘s john maguire has been finding out. their mission is to make our streets safer. these are the community snow workings. —— snow wardens. safer. these are the community snow workings. —— snow wardenslj safer. these are the community snow workings. -- snow wardens. i like being part of the community and it's something people appreciate. people say thank you, and it is just nice. trained by bristol city council and
how to keep themselves safe and had a clear food fast for their neighbours, there has not been a great need for their services in recent yea rs. great need for their services in recent years. this is the first time you have used it? the first serious time, yes. why do you do it? we live ina time, yes. why do you do it? we live in a hilly area in bristol, if there is snow, the problem is ours, it is not somebody else's problem. we have to try and solve ourselves. i think communities are as important as families really. you have always got your community, you might not always have your family. as vehicles slip and slide their way along the streets, most people here have opted to travel on foot. so clear pavements are much appreciated. but as we struggle to cope with whether many of us now rarely see in much of the uk... that is why darfur for a pram... programme's. visiting from
the ukraine, this is a bosman's on the ukraine, this is a bosman's on the day. i do indeed live in the ukraine, it was —1ii left. slightly chilly over there as well. it is funny coming back for a few days and having this year in the uk. we are only half a mile away from the centre of bristol, but as you can see lots of these roads are still covered in snow. when you think about it, it doesn't matter how good about it, it doesn't matter how good a job is done clearing motorways and a roads. if you can't even get out your front a roads. if you can't even get out yourfront door, a roads. if you can't even get out your front door, what is the point? and that is where these wardens comment. as much as their efforts are appreciated, a soul would make life much easier. but until that happens, these volunteers will be out in force and thankfully, in both senses of the word, there is plenty of grit. the armed forces have
been lending a hand, helping nhs staff and patients get to hospitals. let's speak to lieutenant colonel dave nicholson, who has been assisting people in north devon. can you tell us what happened from the moment you got the phone call? certainly. we are based here in north devon, i'm in charge of the logistics regiment, and we were activated in support of local authorities. we have sent two teams down to exeter, consisting of military vehicles, four by four vehicles, alongside civilian four by fours that we have. in order to support the local authority, primarily the nhs, in moving critical clinicians, midwives, doctors and consultants, around the
community, ensuring that critical medical support is delivered. and in addition to that we are moving patients from those rural areas back to hospitals. it has been a busy 2a hours but we're very pleased to support local community. getting people to and from shifts, moving patients around, and your team is arctic trained, so they are used to these conditions. well used to them. 0ther these conditions. well used to them. other public are not necessarily used to seeing you having a presence on the streets. what has the reaction been? the reaction has been excellent. it is certainly great for us excellent. it is certainly great for us to be able to write support back to the local communities. royal marine commandos and colleagues in the army commando filled routinely operate, we have teams out there at the moment in temperatures much colder than this, between — 18 and — 25 routinely, and we have equipment
to operate in those conditions. people are very well trained in snow and ice training, and we routinely train in those conditions in northern norway, and on the roads of norway, and therefore this is good royal marine conditions and we're used to it. but i understand it is not for the civilian population. the teams on the ground have found that the reaction from the local ablation has been extremely positive. and we are very pleased to get back and provide some positive feedback on the training provided, the extra training we get from the taxpayer. and not just training we get from the taxpayer. and notjust for you training we get from the taxpayer. and not just for you are, training we get from the taxpayer. and notjust for you are, but armed forces have been drafted in all over the country, sometimes to help people stranded on motorways and roads. we're looking at people helped out in edinburgh. have you ever been involved in something like this before in the uk, this type of emergency, caused by severe weather
and snow and ice? it is not routinely done in reaction to snow and ice, but we have had this sort of response to the local authorities and requests from local authorities in the past. you may the flooding that occurred particularly at the somerset levels several years ago, but also food and mouth ten years ago when the military was called in to support local authorities to sort out these problems. it is something we are extremely pleased to be a will to do, feedback to the local community, and the teams enjoy doing it. thank you first begin to us this morning, doing vital work helping to support people across the uk, in your case in devon. here's chris with a look at this morning's weather. chris, how many troops as it take to
push a large truck? look at that. that is one way to get a truck on the move or either way, dogma what the move or either way, dogma what the circumstances are. what isn't side at? houser looking for the rest of us today. it looks like the strongest man competition. what a greatjob. as far as the weather goes, we have had fresh snowfall, not that we needed any more, and the state of play is that we now have 55 centimetres on the ground near cardiff. no wonder communities are still struggling in all this extreme weather. but it will ease somewhat through the course of the weekend with temperatures gradually creeping up. we still have a bit more still to come across parts of scotland, northern ireland and northern england. the cold air is still in place but eventually things will get less cold from the south as we go through the weekend. but we have got
more snowfall and further problems to come today. the satellite picture shows extensive cloud cover, and the thickest is this part working across wales and northern ireland at the moment. that is a weather front bringing the risk of snow. snow is pushing northwards, snow showers for scotland. for eastern scotland and pa rt scotland. for eastern scotland and part of eastern england we also have freezing rain. this is liquid rain that has a temperature below zero and it freezes on impact. this is what happened in devon yesterday, this is the ice that builds up as a result of freezing rain. and nearby, at the same sort of time as this photograph came in, we had a ten car pile—up on the a30 eight. it can be incredibly dangerous, turning roads into ice rings, and we have that risk this morning across eastern scotla nd risk this morning across eastern scotland and north east england. if you're heading onto the roads bear in mind we could have incredibly dangerous conditions, black eyes and dangerous conditions, black eyes and dangerous slippery conditions on the pavements as well. a few more centimetres of snow to come across northern areas. showers mainly
confined to south—west england as we go through the day. wales will become dry as the showers move away over the next few hours. turning a little less cold in the south. 0vernight will be cold again with temperatures dipping below freezing. further showers pushing northwards. and againa further showers pushing northwards. and again a widespread ice risk into sunday. sunday will see further showers driving away northwards. watch out for icy conditions first thing. snow across eastern scotland, and through the day hill snow is likely across north—east england and eastern scotland. morally wintry mix with rain, sleet and snow at low levels. further south, showers will fall as rain through the afternoon as temperatures pushed up to nine celsius in london. the trend for less cold weather will continue into next week as well. cancer of the oesophagus might not be one of the best known cancers but it's one
of the most deadly. last year, it was responsible for nearly 8,000 deaths because it is very hard to spot in time for a cure. paid for by public donations to "stand up to cancer", doctors and physicists in cambridge have joined forces to develop a new type of camera that could pick out abnormal cells before they develop into cancer. ahead of the first trials on patients, our science correspondent, richard westcott has been to see how it works. right now this is how you find one of britain's deadliest cancers. a soft goal cancer kills 21 people a day because it is so difficult to spot. using a camera with a normal white light on the end, the doctor is looking at the dark red patch. it is looking at the dark red patch. it isa is looking at the dark red patch. it is a condition that is not dangerous in itself, but can contain cells that turn cancerous, if you can find them. early cancer appears as
redmond. because we're looking at the contrast between red and red, this might be very difficult to appreciate. , is a problem, but also appreciate. , is a problem, but also a solution. these physicists already use different coloured lasers to study electrons. now they are adapting the technique to look for early signs of disease. the current camera looks down the throat using white light, and that makes it quite ha rd to white light, and that makes it quite hard to spot the cancer. the new camera is going to look using different coloured lights, and to get the right colour, it should make the potentially cancerous cells low. what happens is the tissue becomes cancerous is we get a change in the chemical composition, and different chemicals are different colours, meaning that if we look at the cancer with a technique that allows us cancer with a technique that allows us to capture information from all the different colours of light that are being reflected, we can get a fuller picture of the disease presents. and this is how it might
look. the idea has come from a cancer research programme where scientists, engineers and medic is joining forces to find cancer early. most of our patients present late, and for cancer of the oesophagus as and for cancer of the oesophagus as an example, two thirds of our patients present with a cancer that is already spreading to the lymph glands, and after that it can go to distant organs like the liver. if we treat cancer at that point at which it is still within the tissue of the softwa re it is still within the tissue of the software gives itself and has not spread anywhere, we can remove it all and curate. that is is that what happened to jackie. the court heard aziz in time, and she is fine. happened to jackie. the court heard aziz in time, and she is finelj knew there is something wrong. debuchy not have heartburn for 20 odd years, actually it was 30 years. yes, you have to be diagnosed early, because when you are diagnosed early you can do something about it. they
will start trials of the new camera on patients in the next few weeks. if successful it could also be used to spot other cancers before they become fatal. you're watching breakfast from bbc news. time now for a look at the newspapers. professor of entrepreneurship, vikas shah, is here to tell us what's caught his eye. the first story was fascinating. it is about silicon valley ilia mares who are taking extreme stress. up in order to reduce stress levels. they are working with experts to go and do arctic claims and ice swimming and these things, because their 40s, it would put our bodies through stress, it helps us with stress.
these are people who work in things to do with technology, and slightly unreal things, if you like, so what they want is a big dose of reality? what you often find is with people at that point in their career, their dayjobs are so intense and so all—consuming that they need their lives outside business to also have those same qualities, so imagine you are doing 18 hour days building a multi—billion dollar business, and then you go home. it is, what now? that's why these people are following extreme activities to keep up following extreme activities to keep up that level through their lives. they describe it as the idea that you target self—imposed modules of daily misery to prepare themselves for their daily lives. my theory on this is that partly it is bragging rights. i wonder about breast, that's nothing, i went up... but also, do you not think people who
are in powerful positions, actually be to really ordinary things? because that would make them understand people better. the problem is, exactly as you said, when your peer group is living that instagram lifestyle of, "i have just claimed this" or whatever it might be, that becomes the measure by which evaluate yourself against. and also silicon valley is very male dominated. 100%. and this is the caricature dominated. 10096. and this is the caricature of that hyper alpha, masculine world. this story is focusing on london, cold on the loan, one man's struggle in freezing london. to contrast the story of people doing at austin to be for enjoyment, this is the very real situation where charities estimate that in the uk 8000 people are sleeping rough at any one time, with a similaramount of sleeping rough at any one time, with a similar amount of hidden homeless. and this story focused on a
gentleman who has been living rough on and off for 32 years. and the talked about how with his health challenges the only time he gets respite from living on the streets is when he is in hospital receiving treatment, then he is back out to areas. and the challenge we have sometimes is that these topics come into the forefront of our minds at christmas when the weather is bad, but for the rest of the year, these charities simply aren't getting the support they need to really help people into accommodation, and to get back into life. in terms of money raising, the trick is to make sure the attention is drawn to them at specific times, to make sure that injuries. and we find that working with charities during periods of cold weather, christmas, those times of the year, they are oversubscribed with volunteers and supplies, and that the struggle for the rest of the year when they are stilljust that the struggle for the rest of the year when they are still just as needed. time for one more story. let's go with mark arm and, because
this scared me. he received his 0be, andi this scared me. he received his 0be, and i thought, this is very nice, very well—deserved, then a reason what happened, and the reason it scared me is that i will be in his shoes next thursday, and i didn't realise at the time that you have to speak to the royal as well as getting the medal pinned on. and so i have been getting these thoughts, what on earth will i talk to them about? ! what have you been awarded? and mbe, not quite as high as marc almond. what i didn't realise at the time, the whole ceremonial process of talking to them and having a conversation about your work, actually nerve—racking. the first timei actually nerve—racking. the first time i have felt that since graduation. by all accounts in that situation the royals are very good at putting people at their ease and showing interest in what you do. and i dare say the nature of your work, entrepreneurship, they will be interested. absolutely. but itjust
makes you realise, even for celebrities like marc almond, there will always be certain situations that make you feel very uncomfortable, albeit in a good way and reading that article suddenly you get those butterflies in your stomach. it's just a wonderful thing andi stomach. it's just a wonderful thing and i know sometimes people get a bit iffy about the honours system, but i think actually recognising people from charities is wonderful. not to name drop, but i did spend some time with prince william this week and he is very relaxed. i'm sure the conversation will be fine. it is not a bad thing to be nervous sometimes. that is a healthy thing, isn't it? i think it is imada think anyone who denies that is release kerry. —— it is scary. iforget anyone who denies that is release kerry. —— it is scary. i forget to join top of your game, and it is good emotion to feel. don't overthink it. we will see when an hour four overthink it. we will see when an hourfour more from overthink it. we will see when an hour four more from the papers. stay with us. the headlines are
coming up. hello, this is breakfast with tina daheley and charlie stayt. coming up before 9am, chris will bring you the weather — that's in 15 minutes time. but first, at 8.30, a summary of this morning's main news. weather warnings for snow and ice remain in place across much of the uk — that's despite temperatures being expected to gradually rise in many areas. 2,000 homes are without power and motorists and rail passengers face further disruption. in the last half an hour, the rail line at dawlish has been closed again, due to flooding caused by high tides. network rail say it is currently unsafe to go on the site. the national farmers union says dairy farms are having to throw away milk because tankers are unable to collect it. let's speak to mark wareham from somerset who has had to pour away around 8,000 litres so far. good morning, mark. it's a slightly
fuzzy picture of you but hopefully you can hear me 0k. tell us what it has been like for you over the past few days. very challenging. 0bviously extreme weather conditions. itjust 0bviously extreme weather conditions. it just makes 0bviously extreme weather conditions. itjust makes life very difficult. how does it work in practice, mark? because normally the tankers come to pick up the milk. what is happening? 0k, normally our milk is collected every evening at around 7:30pm. the tanker arrives, ta kes around 7:30pm. the tanker arrives, takes away the milk and that is a daily occurrence. how has it worked in relation to what has been extreme weather? presumably they haven't been able to get to you? no, we had a phone call thursday night to save the tanker wouldn't get to our advantage in the milk so it was down to us to dispose of the milk
accordingly due to not having a capacity to store any more than 5000 litres, so we had to tip away two days worth of milk. and that was unavoidable, was it? nothing else you can do in those circumstances. no, wejust don't you can do in those circumstances. no, we just don't have the capacity to store anything more than 5000 litres on—farm. to store anything more than 5000 litres on-farm. 0k, to store anything more than 5000 litres on-farm. ok, so looking forward now, are the tankers able to get to you now? we had a phone call last night from the dairy to say that providing we get no more snow today, they should be with us tonight to collect our milk tonight. well presumably that will be quite freely for you. yes, it will. it has been very challenging. thank you very much forjoining us. as mark was saying, the weather conditions pretty grim and he was outdoors, so just some of the issues being thrown up just some of the issues being thrown up by just some of the issues being thrown up by the weather conditions. a full weather forecast with chris coming up weather forecast with chris coming upfor weather forecast with chris coming up for you later on. the prime minister's
speech on britain leaving the european union has been given a cautious welcome by both the leave and remain wings of her party. theresa may set out her vision of the uk's future trading relationship with the eu and called for concesssions on all sides. she said she was confident remaining differences over a draft legal agreement could be resolved, allowing trade talks to get under way. two men have been arrested by police investigating an explosion in leicester that killed five people. the men, both in their 30s and from east anglia, are being held on suspicion of conspiracy to cause an explosion. three other men, also in their 30s, were arrested on suspicion of manslaughter on wednesday and continue to be questioned by detectives. the body which sets the rules for world football is expected to approve the use of video replay technology throughout the sport when it meets in zurich today. the system has been used on a trial basis in several countries including some cup matches in england. but there are concerns that it disrupts the flow of a game and confuses officials. mike is here now with this board.
what do you think about the video assistant referee thing? it was a farce the other night. there have been costly decisions in the past which have been clearly wrong, so it should help with that. the other night was a farce of teething problems, but i think it's a personal thing. it has worked in other sports for a long time. it's going right to the wire as england and new zealand, try to take the lead in the one day series. england need two more wickets, new zealand needed ten more runs last timei zealand needed ten more runs last time i looked. the kiwis made a steady start, as they chase that target of 235 to win.
but ben stokes took a spectacular catch, off adil rashid, to start a run of wickets. moeen ali took two wickets in three balls — new zealand lost four for just six runs. but captain kane williamson kept things steady and got into the nineties. then a key moment, williamson gave a catching chance to chris woakes who could only get a finger on it but the ball went on to the stumps and ran out the other batsman, mitchell sa ntner. so, 220 548 now, so tenderly good for the —— ten needed off of the last over. my eyes are playing up there. i thought we had another five runs. can you keep an eye on it while i go and hair. i'll keep an eye on it. now after years of disappointment, katarina johnson—thompson, has finally won her first world title in pentathlon at the world indoor championships in birmingham. she's now 25 and last year relocated to the south of france
and its done the trick — victory in the 800 metres, to end what she said had been a wobbly, but in the end, a dominant day she set a new personal best, in the shot putt and came out on top in the long jump. it comes after she suffered disappointment, at the world outdoor championships in london last summer. i can't believe it. to come here and do this, it is something i dreamt of last summer, so it's amazing to come here and do this. i went through a ha rd year last here and do this. i went through a hard year last year at the and of the wanted my family to see me achieve something. it'sjust something that i still can't believe, really. well that's britain's second medal of these championships, and there could be more to come today. laura muir is looking to follow up the bronze she won in the 3000 metres with another medal in the 1500 today. she qualified for the final in second place in her heat, behind friday's gold medallist, genzebe dibaba. i haven't had a chance to celebrate.
i haven't had a chance to celebrate. i have been trying to prepare for today and the 1500 tomorrow. but i am so delighted to have a medal in my pocket already. great britain added another medal on day three of the world track championship in apeldoorn in the netherlands. mark stewart won bronze in the men's points race, which is over 160 laps. australia's cameron meyer retained his title with home rider jan willem van schip taking silver. britain now have four medals — one gold, two silvers and stewart's bronze. it was a difficult evening for britain's elinor barker as she was caught up in this crash, during the elimination race, in the women's omnium. she went into this final event, which was, the points race, in the bronze medal position, but couldn't manage to hold on to it, finishing sixth overall. kirsten vild took gold for the netherlands. super league fixtures have been hit by the weather, but last night's games went ahead. hull fc got their season back on track by beating warrington 21—12. it was a bad tempered affair in which both sides had a man sent off,
after two red cards. elsewhere wigan moved up to second, with a 32—16 win over widnes. middlesbrough are into the championship play—off places, after beating leeds 3—0. it was a hat—trick from striker patrick ba mford that pushed boro into the top six. this game surviving the weather, but three championship games today, have already been postponed, so do check before setting off. and of course, watch football focus at lunchtime foreign updatable postponements. what a magnificent plug. and as if by magic, you have a world indoor champion, doing premier league predictions. yes, katarina johnson—thompson is doing them. it was brilliant to see her win doing them. it was brilliant to see herwina doing them. it was brilliant to see her win a medal. it is with only
three matches in one league, two in another, lots of postponed matches, but we have virgil van dyke on the programme talking about settling in at liverpool. he has been speaking about what it means to play at liverpool. everyday here is tough. we worked very hard, we run a lot and a big difference of what been used to, so i need to step up my game. ithink used to, so i need to step up my game. i think now it is getting better every day and i'm used to everything has well, the way we play, the intensity of our game, because that is a lot higher than i was used to. so they take on newcastle this weekend and like eve ryo ne newcastle this weekend and like everyone else, they are chasing manchester city. they have leroy sammy on this week and was man of the match against arsenal this week and arsenal are now closer to west
bromwich the bottom of the table than they are the manchester city at the top, so we will be speaking to martin keown about where arsenal go from here. i've got a nice picture of phil neville as well after the englishwomen beat france for the first time in 44 years. and tony mowbray let his players train inside this week it has been so cold. we have ryan mason on the programme, debut for him. he retired earlier this year after fracturing his skull at 26. he will be on along with danny murphy and martin thiam. google widget falling for used fantastic, a power hour. -- fantastic, a power hour. -- fantastic, it will be a power hour. and i can tell you that england have wrapped up a victory against new
zealand. is that why you were paying no attention to me? i feel it made sense. every now and then i looked across the sea of mike was paying attention, and he was like that... at least he had a decent excuse this time. dan, you like your squash, don't you? let me party this ball. 0h, almost. now if you're looking for a new sport to warm you up during the cold weather, then all you'll need is a ball, a wall and your bare hands. it's the sport that is based on a playground game, but it's now been formalised and ahead of the uk championships, i went to try wallball in west london. it's the sport that started in the playground when we were kids and now they are trying to take it back there again now that it's officially known as wallball, because the
beauty is its simplicity. all you need is a ball and a wall. similar to squash but even easier because all it's got to do is hit the wall and land in the court and a rally continues until somebody misses the ball. it has been going on for hundreds of years all over the wall. in new york, there are hundreds of courts free to use everyday. that's what we want to do here. it has derived from the game fives which was derived from public schools centuries ago but in size you need more walls. this means it was more difficult to play but this can be played anywhere by people of any age and ability. you go like this and go plan. it feels really good. it has got me running around. hopefully i will lose my porch. the ball is bouncy if you hit it too hard. you don't want to hit it with too much
power but a little bit of power. it's like playing tennis or squash but without a racket, just your hand. so anyone could try it and i think it would do them the world of good. the majority of people, this is really simple for them. right, left coordination. if you are thinking about stroke rehabilitation, the right left side is so important. for kids development and adults getting active, they are simple, safe movements which are very easy to do. which is why uk wallball hope to spread this to other cities around the uk and the british team will compete in the world cup in the us later this year. the men's team r&b top five. at a top—level, like when you play with the great british squad, you can wear gloves, so i have opted for that. at
international level, you get a insight into the speed and power and also tactics that you don't see at other levels. i didn't even see it. that was a tactical blocking where he was standing in front so i didn't see it until it was too late. unlike squash and other sports, you can be an obstacle on court. he is allowed to be there. the baulk are going between his legs and you have to play it. whether you are being blocked or not, you can was be deceived by the bounce. —— you can a lwa ys deceived by the bounce. —— you can always be deceived by the bounce. so it definitely gives you a good run around and you can see where it is good exercise especially for those may be with joint problems in the way you move around. and a minimalamount way you move around. and a minimal amount of kit required. and fuss. easy to pick up. bank account holders conned into transferring money to fraudsters could be compensated under new rules. £100 million was lost in so—called ‘push payment scams' in the first six months of last year but banks say it's not
their fault and in some cases are reluctant to reimburse. let's find out more now with paul lewis from radio four‘s money box programme. good morning to you, paul. is this good news then it sounds like for people who were getting scammed? well, it's potentially good news. we need to see the details but the payment systems regulator seems very determined that banks are going to have to accept more responsibility for these scams. they are very clever. they are done by very clever professional con men and women. they bring you up, they tell you that your bank account is at risk and you've —— and they are from your bank or broadband provider or whoever and they persuade you to give a little bit of information and that eventually enables them to take money out of your bank account. because you have taken part in it though the bank says you were partly responsible, even though these were clever crooks who fall due. but that should change with this new code of
practice. what would you have to do then? if you think you have been scammed, what are the steps after that? the new thing is, when this begins in six months' time, the banks will have to show they took every possible step to make sure this couldn't happen. at the moment, there are many thieves who are allowed to open bank accounts because the checks aren't strong enough. then the money is moved to that account and moved abroad. the banks aren't quick enough, they don't cooperate well enough to stop it happening. if the banks cannot show they have done all they could, then they will have to compensate. of course individuals have to take ca re of course individuals have to take care and my rule is very simple. if somebody brings you out of the blue about your bank account, but the phone down because the chances are 99 times out of 100, it is a thief doing that. but not everyone does that and once you start engaging with the clever script they have two con you into giving them little bit of apparently innocent information, they will drain your money away.
of apparently innocent information, they will drain your money awaym is easy for us to say we would never fall for a scam like that, but especially when they are targeting vulnerable people, it is even harder, so for them, this is really important. it is, that's true. though i have to say many of the people we have dealt with, a man we had on a few weeks ago, he had £3 million taken out of his business bank account and he wasn't a vulnerable man. he was a businessman. so they are not necessarily vulnerable people. they are necessarily vulnerable people. they a re often necessarily vulnerable people. they are often busy people are not expecting it. they think, it must be right because it is coming from the bank or bt or the broadband provider or whomever. these are good at coming you into it and people shouldn't be ashamed if it has happened to them and i know many people listening for thinking it would never happen to them but i have heard the tapes, trust me, these people are very, very convincing. if you hear a call like
that, put the phone down. it could save you a lot of money. very good advice. thank you very much, paul. let's show you a glimpse of what it is looking like around the country. this is alec in northumberland. the road looks free of traffic there. we are being told this morning that the police are sometimes leading a convoy, essentially, so a group of vehicles are going together, but essentially very little movement on the roads and very hard hit by the weather. worries about flooding now in the south as well. it looks eerily quiet, doesn't it? let's get a full picture of what is happening with the weather across the uk? it looks lovely behind you, too. it looks lovely behind you, too. yes, it is a beautiful picture,
isn't it. we have seen some fresh snowfall in the south of wales. saint athan is near to cardiff and thatis saint athan is near to cardiff and that is why commuters are struggling still to get out and about. there was a lot of snow still on the ground. there is the risk of a bit more snow to come but nothing like we have seen the last few days. this slightly less cold air is drifting up slightly less cold air is drifting up from the south. that will bring a change to the south of england as we go through this afternoon. a lot of cloud around and a weather front tripping its way northwards, bringing a band of snow across northern england and it's notjust snow. we are seeing something called freezing rain. liquid ring with a temperature below zero. as soon as it touches a surface, it freezes
immediately. these pictures were sent from devon yesterday. that is also a picture of freezing rain. nearby where these pictures were sent to us, there was a ten car pile—up on the a 38, so that is what i'm talking about. black ice, very dangerous conditions out on the road. we have some of this freezing rain across scotland and parts of northern england at the moment. so watch out on the roads and pavements. things could get nasty. a bit more snow to come across northern areas. should be dry once we get rid of the early morning rain in the south. they are arriving a bit quicker than scheduled, and turning wet on the isle of wight for a time this morning. 0vernight tonight, we will see those showers continue to drift northwards across england and wales, and with temperatures taking a dive once again, there will be icy patches again with icy stretches taking us into sunday morning. sunday is a day
of bright baths and showers, probably a little bit more sunshine breaking through the clouds, with the odd heavy shower at times but turning milder across the southern half of the country. up to 9 degrees. further north, a bit of snow and sleet mixed together with the rain, and saying quite cold there. that really is the theme for there. that really is the theme for the weather of the next few days. the thaw slowly setting in place. the thaw slowly setting in place. the worst of the weather behind us. still cold in northern areas. we are likely to see some further episodes of snow and particularly across the high ground in scotland. but for most of us, the severe weather conditions are easing. that is how the weekend is shaping up. chris, thank you very much. tomorrow night, the film industry will celebrate the oscars.
the downfall of harvey wallenstein exposed —— the downfall of harvey wednesday exposed a culture of sexual harassment. he is not here and yet he is everywhere. harvey weinstein's image is everywhere. harvey weinstein has denied allegations of non—transsexual denied allegations of non—tra nssexual sex and that denied allegations of non—transsexual sex and that he blacklisted women who spurned his advances. the actress heather graham has made a film inspired by her own experiences of sexism in hollywood. let's just go and have sex in my
office. no. and she has her own harvey weinstein story. he called me into his office and he had a whole pile of scripts and said i should choose a script, i was a good actress and i could choose anything he wanted to work with me. then he said, my wife and i have an arrangement i can have sex with anyone i want out of the town. long story short, i didn't and i never worked with him. these women meet once a month to discuss the situation. they all work in film. and they are right to be cautious because the figures speak for themselves. of the 100 most popular films here last year, only eight
we re films here last year, only eight were directed by women. greta gur wig might be up for best picture 0scar with her coming—of—age film ladybird, but she is only the fifth woman in the academy‘s 90 year history to be nominated in the category and for her work on the drama blood bound, rachel morrison is the first woman ever to be nominated for best cinematography. a former 0scar nominated for best cinematography. a former oscar winner is under no illusion that change will be swift. when i first started work on film, it was 99.9% male. now it's 75% male. we still have a long way to go. meet two women determined to make a difference. they formed a company committed to producing more diverse films with more women behind and in front of the camera. the majority of the audience is female and the majority of material is male oriented and that distance just does
not make sense. the whole movement towards including more voices and more diverse storytelling, itjust also makes business sense. different perspectives, different angles. they may be the way ahead for hollywood. rebecca jones, bbc news, los angeles. we are going to take you to a complete change of atmosphere now. it was a breath—taking find: a huge colony of penguins thriving in the ice—capped beauty of one of the the world's great wildernesses. but the roots of the discovery were rather less poetic. a huge cluster of penguin droppings. will batchelor explains. where there is muck, there's brass. 0r where there is muck, there's brass. or in this case, one and a half million penguins. a huge colony of adelie penguins was undiscovered
until huge patches of their guano or penguin droppings showed up on satellites in space. the birds live in the north of antarctica, an area with very little human activity, which scientists believe has helped them to thrive. they say penguins thrive better in undisturbed environment and that these islands should become a marine protected area. will batchelor, bbc news. let's find out a little bit more. tom hart is a penguinologist, and thatis tom hart is a penguinologist, and that is the real thing. tell us more about this discovery. the important thing is that there are a lot of penguins there and as we go back through time in older satellite imagery, we actually find that it's relatively stable over at least 40 to 50 years. that's the significance of it. it's interesting because in places we never looked before, but
in terms of the environment and the climate are relatively stable, they are doing well, so it contrasts with what we are seeing elsewhere. so i think that's the importance of it. not only is it a great find and it's quite exciting for us, but it actually shines a light on a contrast of what is going on elsewhere. so, tom, now we know they are there and the discovery has been made, what do we do? there is discussion of a marine protected area there and this comes in time to inform that. i would like to see the protection. i don't think they are that threatens their yet but this would be pre—emptive. it would seem silly not to given there is already discussion over protection in that region. can i ask you, tom, about some of the detail around the discovery? you are able to put a number on how many there are. how do you possibly know how many penguins there are? how is that counting
process done? the original discovery was made by satellite imagery. collea g u es was made by satellite imagery. colleagues in the us went through satellite imagery. we had an idea that there might be colony is fair because the environment fitted adelie penguins but they found that fire satellite and quantified it in the region of roughly 300,000 pairs or 600,000 penguins but because it's from space, that's not very accurate. so we went there, but beats on the ground, we've blew drones over them, we counted by hand, so we are confident because we counted everyone. there is still over there but we counted every penguin we could see. it is stating the obvious, tom, but how do you know one penguin from another? well, thatis know one penguin from another? well, that is where the drones come in. when you are taking snapshots, you have a snapshot composite of the whole colony. a penguin cannot be
into different places at the same time. that is the only way that i can tell the difference them. and clearly we have an affection for penguins, don't we? there is a particular affection with penguins andi particular affection with penguins and i think i am right in saying what we being taught how to walk in the snow by mimicking penguins because of the bad weather recently? yes, andi because of the bad weather recently? yes, and i think that's very practical. they do have claws on their feet but they walk slowly and steadily and that's quite a good way to walk in the snow. it's a little bit more how we walked when we were down in antarctica. tom, lovely to speak to you this morning. thank you very much indeed for your time. have you been walking around like a penguin? toa penguin? to a degree. i haven't been comparing myself directly, but similar probably. stay with us. headlines are coming up. hello this is breakfast, with tina daheley and charlie stayt. weather warnings for snow and icy roads remain in place across much of the uk, causing further disruption.
this is the thing in northumberland we re this is the thing in northumberland were the a1 has just reopened. motorists are still being warned to ta ke motorists are still being warned to take care. and there is an amber weather warning still in place in wales. the scenes were filmed in dawlish with a rail line has been closed for a second time in 24 hours.
