all your latest spot there. more to come in the next hour. you are watching bbc news. let's take a look at some other stories making the news this lunchtime. the virus which causes polio has been detected in multiple sewage samples in london. health officials say, while the risk to the public is low, they are urging people to ensure they've been fully immunised against polio. our global health correspondent naomi grimley is here to explain. it is not often we talk about a polio. should we stress the post about that this isn't a case of people actually finding active cases of polio? we people actually finding active cases of olio? ~ ~' ., people actually finding active cases of olio? ~ ., , people actually finding active cases of olio? ~ ~ ., , . �* of polio? we know people haven't resented of polio? we know people haven't presented to _ of polio? we know people haven't presented to doctors _ of polio? we know people haven't presented to doctors yet - of polio? we know people haven't presented to doctors yet with - of polio? we know people haven't| presented to doctors yet with polio and polio in its most serious form can cause paralysis, but what has happened is health officials have managed to detect it in its sewage water, which they are testing anyway for other viruses like covid. and
1:39 pm
whereas sometimes they see it and it disappears, it is gone, one week it is fair and disappears, it is gone, one week it is fairand the disappears, it is gone, one week it is fair and the next week it isn't, this time they have seen it repeatedly over a series of months and that makes them wonder whether it has come in, imparted by someone who was vaccinated with a very weakened form of that virus, given that oral polio vaccine which is an older version of the one we use now in the uk. and that's about it have you mutated and is now being passed on two it has mutated and is now being passed on.— on two it has mutated and is now being passed on. should people be concerned? — being passed on. should people be concerned? what _ being passed on. should people be concerned? what actions _ being passed on. should people be concerned? what actions should i concerned? what actions should people take? the concerned? what actions should pe0ple take?— concerned? what actions should peeple take?— people take? the first thing to stress is that _ people take? the first thing to stress is that this _ people take? the first thing to stress is that this has - people take? the first thing to stress is that this has been - people take? the first thing to . stress is that this has been picked up stress is that this has been picked up in london only for now. they think it is circulating just in north and east london and they think it could be pretty limited spread because we had very good vaccination rate for polio in the uk. 95% of
1:40 pm
children by the age of two up had their polio vaccinations. those numbers are slightly lower in london and that is why health officials are stressing that people should make sure their children are up with their polio vaccinations and also that doctors should look out for it because the worry here is that it might mutate again and carry on in unvaccinated pockets of the community. unvaccinated pockets of the community-— unvaccinated pockets of the communi . , . ~ , ., community. interesting. thank you very much- — community. interesting. thank you very much- a _ community. interesting. thank you very much. a report _ community. interesting. thank you very much. a report have - community. interesting. thank you | very much. a report have concluded that police in rotherham fell to see children who are being sexually amused it back abused as victims. —— abused as victims. more now on the news that a report has concluded police in rotherham failed to see children who were being sexually abused as victims. a desperate story that he was may be familiar with but explain exactly
1:41 pm
what the criticisms are in this report and what is being done. this was one of— report and what is being done. this was one of the _ report and what is being done. ti 3 was one of the largest investigations ever carried out by the independent office for police conduct. it has cost so far around £6 million. it started eight years ago, following the alexis jake report which revealed at least 1a00 children had been sexually exploited in rotherham. this report has revealed that a3 complaints have been upheld, mostly from survivors and from their families. let me give you an idea of some of these complaints that were upheld. in one a father said he was told by eight south yorkshire police officer that his 15—year—old daughter might learn her lesson after a suspected rate. another upheld complaint was a child abduction case that ended with a victim being handed over to police
1:42 pm
officers by a perpetrator as part of a deal not to arrest him. there were several incidences of police officers stopping cars with young girls and perpetrators inside and not taking any action, even on one occasion when a girl told police she lived in a children's home, even on another occasion when a girl told police she had just performed a six act on a perpetrator —— a sex act. the report said there appeared to be a culture where... many of these themes we have heard many times before in the years since thej report, so what is a result of all these complaints? no officer at south yorkshire police have lost theirjob over the handling of it in rotherham. they found that 1a officers had a case to answer for either misconduct or gross
1:43 pm
misconduct but of those have faced no action because they retired. there were words of advice art management action for three serving officers and two officers received written warnings. south yorkshire police has apologised to victims. it says it is a very different police force now but here in rotherham there aren't many, many survivors living with the trauma of their abuse, also living with the trauma of not feeling believed by police, a feeling blamed for their abuse and there are survivors and families here today who feel very angry and let down because they feel that still no one at south yorkshire police has been held accountable for these failings. police has been held accountable for these failings-— these failings. thank you, emma. that report _ these failings. thank you, emma. that report talking _ these failings. thank you, emma. that report talking about - these failings. thank you, emma. that report talking about child - that report talking about child sexual exploitation. the mayor of uvalde in texas says the school where a gunman killed 19 children and two teachers
1:44 pm
last month is to be demolished. earlier, the official in charge of public safety told a state hearing that the law enforcement response to the attack had been an �*abject failure' richard forrest reports. a month ago, young children at robb elementary school in texas were frantically calling 911 to report multiple victims, as their classmates were being shot. now photos have emerged that appear to show armed police with rifles and at least one ballistic shield waiting in a school corridor, arriving earlier and with more powerful weaponry than previously reported. pictured inside the school, 19 minutes after the gunman entered the school. but why was there a long delay in using them? there is another accusation — police waited for a master key to arrive so the classroom doors could be opened, but there are now serious doubt aired that the door was even locked.
1:45 pm
there is compelling evidence that the law enforcement response to the attack at robb elementary was an abject failure. the damning timeline of events showing in galling detail that it was over an hour into the shooting when officers confronted and killed the gunman. three minutes after the subject entered the west building, there were a sufficient number of armed officers wearing body armour to isolate, distract and neutralise the subject. the officers had weapons. the children had none. the officers had body armour. the children had none. texas's public safety chief also accuses the on scene commander of placing officers' lives above the children's. the testimony of one survivor illustrates how desperate things were at the time.
1:46 pm
we had numerous law enforcement officers and agencies that assisted with the safety release for those students. there are calls for this man, uvalde's schools police chief, pete arredondo, to resign but he denies he was the incident commander and says he did not order police to hold back. the initial narrative of police presented by the governor was that police were courageous, acted decisively, quickly ran towards the sound of gunfire and confronted the shooter. and it has turned out to be not even close to the truth and has been very, very hard for texans to hear this narrative fall apart. the deaths of 19 students and two teachers now harder to bear, following the police decision not to confront the active shooter quickly. ajury ina ajury in a civil case in a jury in a civil case in california
1:47 pm
has found bill cosby liable for sexually assaulting a woman in los angeles in 1975 when she was just 16 years old. the court ordered bill cosby to pay her half $1 million in damages. justice forjudy huth, after the man, known to millions as america's dad, bill cosby, is found by a jury in a civil trial to have abused her a0 years ago at the playboy mansion. it has been torture, it has. to have been ripped apart, thrown under the bus and backed over and this, to me, is such a big victory, it really is. judy huth testified that the comedian invited her and a friend, when she was 16 and he was 37, and forced her to perform a sexual act. bill cosby, now 8a, who did not appear in person at the trial, denied the allegation. he was released from a prison last year when a court in pennsylvania threw out
1:48 pm
a criminal conviction for sexual assault. today is a big verdict in los angeles county because this is the first, maybe of up to 50 or 60 bill cosby victims, that have had their case moved forward to a jury. after serving only three years, in prison, many believe bill cosby didi not receive many believe bill cosby did not receive justice. the jury also ruled that bill cosby must payjudy huth $500,000 in damages but cosby�*s team will appeal. we will appeal, we will appeal. you heard from bill cosby in video disposition that he did not know her and never brought a minor but what happened today was not a victory. they did not get the punitive damages. the victory was ours because we got to disclose and show what this woman was all about. campaigners praised judy huth for her courageous testimony
1:49 pm
in a verdict, they said, shows survivors that perpetrators, even powerful ones, can be held accountable. mark lobel, bbc news. now on bbc news, it's time to take a look at some of the stories making headlines this lunchtime from our news teams across the uk. investigators are trying to find out why a 13 year old boy died in an incident in the river taff in cardiff. our correspondent david grundy is in cardiff. explain what happened, david. it was around quarter to five yesterday afternoon when a group of young people were cooling off in the river just through the railway viaduct down there when they realise one of their friends was missing. down there when they realise one of theirfriends was missing. the emergency services were called, and even the coast guard were involved
1:50 pm
in the search. it was an hour later that the 13—year—old boy was pulled from the water, a little bit further down. attempts were made to resuscitate him but they were unsuccessful and he was confirmed dead early this morning. today his family is being supported by specially trained officers. the coroner has been informed of the incident and a police investigation is ongoing. people have been coming here to paid their respects, laying flowers, balloons have been released into the water. the local mp described his death as devastating and heartbreaking and thank the emergency services for their work. this is even more tragic because it is a second death of a teenager in a river in south wales in the last four weeks. river in south wales in the last fourweeks. one river in south wales in the last four weeks. one month ago i was standing on the banks of a river in swansea when a boy was missing and later died at the scene. a different
1:51 pm
city and different river but their circumstances are very similar. cooling off in the river after a hot day at school. —— after school. what happened yesterday is part of an ongoing investigation.— happened yesterday is part of an ongoing investigation. thank you, david. thank you, david. health screening is being offered to more than 20,000 people in portsmouth, in a bid to reduce levels of lung cancer. the city has one of the country's highest death rates from the disease. past and current smokers between the ages of 55 and 7a are being invited for a scan. our health correspondent alastair fee has more. martin comes from a family of smokers and used to have a 50—per—day habit. he quit seven months ago after catching covid for the second time. my father died of cancer, my two best friends died of cancer, so i've been around cigarettes my whole life. today, he is having his lungs scanned.
1:52 pm
the nhs is inviting past and present smokers in portsmouth to attend a health check. we do worry and we don't speak to people and this allowed me to say, "ok, i don't even need to see a doctor, i'm going to spend 15 minutes of my time under a scanner and they will either give me the all clear or tell me something is wrong", so, you know, to me, it's a no—brainer. you have to do it, you really have to do it. 23,000 people between the ages of 55 and 7a have been contacted. lung cancer often presents late and that's because there are few signs and symptoms at an earlier stage and it's really important to catch it early because it's more treatable at an earlier stage. that's what the service is designed to do. it's designed to find cancer that is not symptomatic in people, so that we can start treatment earlier. so, why is this so important? portsmouth was chosen to take part in this programme
1:53 pm
because of its high incidence of lung cancer. the number of deaths here is greater than the national average and two thirds of cases in the city are picked up late. karen lost her mum to lung cancer when she was 65. i have been a nonsmokerfor 28 years now but you don't know what has caught up with you from the past and i think a preventive medicine is probably the way forward for as much things as we can pick up on. people diagnosed at the earliest stage are 20 times more likely to survive for five years compared to those caught late. we know that 62% of people with lung cancer in portsmouth present - at a late stage and we are trying |with this service to try and bringj that down to 25% by 2028. it could save your life, it's as simple as that. it could save your life and save you from worrying if there is something wrong. over the next two years, thousands of people will be scanned. the nhs estimates over 200
1:54 pm
cases of lung cancer will be identified early. a blind nottinghamshire schoolboy is trying to raise awareness of the problems caused by parking on pavements. ted, who's 13, has stickler syndrome, which caused his retinas to detach, resulting in him becoming blind at the age of two. chris waring has been to meet him at his home in farnsfield near newark. i know this road, and there shouldn't be anything there, so when there is, it's just confusing. and if i can't get round it, there's cars zooming past on the road, and i just get scared of them and frightened, because they sound, and they are, very dangerous. when ted comes across a parked car on a pavement, he has to make a decision. turn back or step out onto the road. hi, i'm ted, i'm 13 years
1:55 pm
old and i have stickler syndrome, which means i can't see anything. it stops the production of collagen in the eyes, which means your retinas become detached, and i can't perceive any light, which means that i can't get any image in my brain. i don't feel safe going out when i might have to walk straight onto the road around a car. it's frightening and confusing. the government has been open to consultation on whether to give local authorities more parking powers. however, there are concerns it could cause more issues. it terrifies me, to be honest with you, but equally, i want him to have that independence and be able to go out there. pavement parking has been banned in london since 197a, but there are petitions to make it illegal elsewhere. and it's notjust people that can't see, it's people with pushchairs, people with wheelchairs, are forced onto the road, which obviously is just not safe. ted is hoping that he will eventually have a guide dog.
1:56 pm
i'm trying to explain the difficulties for me so that they know what is wrong with the system, they realise what they are doing that impacts me. the latest coming up from two o'clock. the latest coming up from two o'clock. now it's time for a look at the weather with tomasz. another very warm and sunny day for many of us today. tomorrow's temperatures could even be a little higher, but we have also got some thunderstorms on the way across part of england and wales as well. mostly the southern half of the uk. that is to come tomorrow. but this is the latest satellite picture. lots of sunshine, hazy skies in the north—west, it is cooler here. 15 in stornoway. eastern scotland, the low 20s.
1:57 pm
the peak of the heat somewhere around the midlands, probably around 28 celsius this afternoon. and still those pollen levels are very high, widely across the uk. let's have a look at the picture. through the course of this evening and overnight, very little happening on the weather front across much of england and wales. scotland and northern ireland, too, although a bit more cloudy, a bit more of a breeze. a relatively warm night. by the early hours of the morning, around 1a in london, 13 in belfast. not far off that in glasgow. tomorrow, sunshine right from the word go across many parts of the uk, apart from the north—west here. and then thunderstorms will drift in from the south. they could reach the south coast as early as the morning, and then through the afternoon they will spread into the midlands and further north. but temperatures tomorrow could be a degree or so higher. we think the peak will be around central parts of england, just shy of 30 celsius. here are the storms through tomorrow evening. i think the risk of storms will continue probably to round about midnight
1:58 pm
or so tomorrow. through the weekend, friday and the weekend will see a weather front approaching the uk. so low pressure means that the weather will start to deteriorate. it will become a little more unsettled. certainly i think on friday we have a lot of cloud and moisture coming in from the south. a good chance of catching a shower. it won't be raining all the time. it will be more of a sort of sunny spells and occasional showers sort of day. but look at the temperatures. a good deal lower. no longer 29 degrees in central england. more like 20. that heat will be pushed towards east anglia, still around 25 or so. friday night into saturday and sunday, low pressure parks itself over ireland. we will see showers spinning around it. and that does mean that the weekend is going to be at times unsettled with showers, and those temperatures will be a good deal lower. goodbye.
