thanks impossible isjust possible. thanks for joining impossible isjust possible. thanks forjoining us. time for a look at the weather. here's louise lear. it is starting to feel quite pleasant, this time last week i said how miserable and cold it was on the east coast with a cold east wind, but look at it today. in cambridgeshire, beautiful morning, and if you have some sunshine, you also have spring warmth. i7 and if you have some sunshine, you also have spring warmth. 17 degrees in parts of norfolk as we speak. there is cloud elsewhere, filtering along the west coast and the cloud is thick enough for a spot of drizzle, but still pretty mild. this isa drizzle, but still pretty mild. this is a classic picture across parts of argyll. some mist and drizzle. the weather front producing the cloud and showers is sinking slowly south and showers is sinking slowly south and behind it brighter conditions into scotland, but still, not bad for this time of year. 8—11 degrees and a scattering of showers. this is
the weather front in the north west, coming out of the isle of man into north wales, producing some outbreaks of rain and poor visibility and also hill fog and a bit in the way of cloud. but if you get the cloud to break up you will get the cloud to break up you will get warmth. i7 get the cloud to break up you will get warmth. 17 degrees, maybe 18 before we close the day. the weather front will continue to move steadily south. as it does it introduces more cloud and eventually it will bring rain, maybe not until after dark, through wales and the midlands and southern england. its dales mild overnight. further north, a bit fresher —— it stays mild. 4—6 gem in the end the towns and cities, but you will start with sunshine. further south it will meander its way to the m4 corridor by lunchtime and it will start to weaken. we pick up and it will start to weaken. we pick up more wind and rain and some of the rain is quite heavy and
persistent by the end of the day into the far north—west. still a mild afternoon. we should only have 7-9 mild afternoon. we should only have 7—9 as a maximum at this time of year. more of a significant area of low pressure begins to push in through tuesday into wednesday, the ice bars really squeezing together in this basically means we will see gale force may be severe gale force gusts of wind in the far north east. a windy day, fresher, with showers of snow on the high ground, but in the south it stays cloudy without brea ks the south it stays cloudy without breaks of rain. the mild air will not last, the rain eases away and the cold air is set to return by the end of the working week. we are not done with winter just end of the working week. we are not done with winterjust yet. a reminder of our main story this lunchtime. council leaders warn of deep cuts to services, despite plans by nearly every local authority in england to increase council tax this year to try to tackle the social care crisis. that's all from the bbc news at one. you're watching bbc news.
the time is 1.33pm. i'm olly foster at the bbc sport centre. all five sports that appealed against their funding cuts to uk sport have been unsuccessful. archery, weightlifting, wheelchair rugby, fencing and badminton had their appeals rejected. badminton received almost £6 million in the last olympic cycle and actually achieved their medal target at the rio games. they say they are staggered by the decision. a little earlier i spoke to the olympic silver medallist and former world champion gail emms. we are absolutely devastated and i just feel for the badminton players out there, the youngsters that were really pinning their hopes on this news. i just really really pinning their hopes on this news. ijust really feel for them right now. five sports leading up to tokyo have had theirfunding com pletely tokyo have had theirfunding completely ta ken away. tokyo have had theirfunding completely taken away. badminton we re very completely taken away. badminton were very confident they could overturn that decision but uk sport
says that there was nothing compelling from any of those sports to make them change their minds. compelling from any of those sports to make them change their mindslj am on the great britain badminton board and i saw the appeal and i know that we did the best case for that appeal and i can only speak for that. i cannot speak for uk sport. i am only speaking as a badminton player that knows that the funding is so important as a player to help you get into the best shape and to go for a medal and from that point of view, it hurts when uk sport say that because, you know, everyone is a competitor and when you out there competing for your country you want to win medals, you want to show eve ryo ne to win medals, you want to show everyone that you can do it. when someone everyone that you can do it. when someone makes that decision that you don't believe in, it really is horrible. all i know is that we put all the facts out there. we really and truly believe in our players. we believe in our system and it's just
the way it is at the moment and like i say, i can't speak for the way it is at the moment and like i say, i can't speakfor badminton england, iam purely i say, i can't speakfor badminton england, i am purely speaking on a personal reaction that it is just cutting right now. we will get more reaction on bbc news from the other four governing bodies to their onset school —— unsuccessful appeals. table tennis did not have any funding in the lead up to rio. they appealed against the decision to have no money for tokyo but that was u nsuccessful as have no money for tokyo but that was unsuccessful as well. table tennis u nsuccessful as unsuccessful as well. table tennis unsuccessful as well. table tennis unsuccessful as well. they will get no funding either in the lead up to tokyo. non—league sutton united face arsenal in the fifth round of the fa cup tonight. waiting for the winners are lincoln city who became the first non—league team in over 100 years to reach the quarterfinals. sutton are the lowest ranked team left in the competition, they are 17th in the national league, over 100 places below the gunners. sutton knocked out leeds in the fourth round. arsenal have done a lot of soul searching in the past week after that thrashing
against bayern munich and the manager has admitted that his 21 year reign at the club may be coming to the end. i think we have to focus on the real problems and the real problems are the way we play football and not my future. the fa cup is one of our targets and it is the next game and for us to bounce back after the game we had is of course, it's and paulson game but it always was in my head. —— it has become an important game but it always was in my head. staying with the fa cup, leicester have complained to the football association regarding their treatemnt at millwall on saturday. they say they have received "numerous complaints" of "abuse, provocation and intimidation" of leicester players, officials and supporters from the time they arrived at the new den to their departure. they say they "simply will not accept the safety of our supporters, players, and staff being compromised" millwall won the tie 1—0. holders arsenal ladies will host tottenham in the fifth
round of the women's fa cup, when top—flight sides enter at the last—16 stage. spurs, one of only two sides from below the women's super league who are left in the cup this season, knocked out brighton of wsl two on sunday. there will also be a merseyside derby between liverpool and everton, plus two all—wsl one matches. on sunday 19th march. that's all of your sport for now. ollie, thank you indeed. president trump is facing calls to further clarify his comments about sweden at a rally on saturday. the swedish ambassador is asking for an explanation. this is what donald trump said. you look at what's happening last night in sweden — sweden! who would believe this? sweden! they took in large numbers and they are having problems like they never thought possible. as we now know there was no such incident. but president trump then tweeted... the president may have been referring to this clip on fox news,
which was about gun violence and rape in sweden since it opened its doors to large numbers of asylum—seekers in 2013. you can look at france, belgium, they have been doing it for longer. you see the social unrest going on there, the terrorism happening there. sweden is a relatively new policy phenomenon for them - by policy phenomenon for them and by the way sweden had its first terrorist islamic attack not that long ago so they are now getting a taste of what we have been seeing across europe already. well, anna maria corazza bildt, a swedish mep, joins me on webcam from stockholm. i understood this took a lot of people by surprise. people were we re people by surprise. people were were questioning and surprised, were questioning and wandering and they also feel insulted. this is a country where we have the highest living standards in the world, free education and access to health care, free media and a
strong sense of up in strong sense of standing up in society and that night all was happening was he would be the swedish champion of eurovision.“ he was talking about the changes to sweden since 2013, he would actually be right there, wouldn't he? know, people in this country believe in knowledge, we are honestly pretty that the president of the shocked that the president of the united states would refer to an unconfirmed report by fox news, which turned out according to the swedish police, the major terrorist experts, to be totally exaggerated, misleading, based on lies. this is fa ke misleading, based on lies. this is fake news. that is not what is happening in sweden. criminality and criminal gangs, often it is actually
migrants and migrant women that are raped and migrants that are actually the victims of the violence. you make this direct connection cannot make this direct connection between immigration and violence. say you are saying that you can see absolutely no connection to any reference to sweden and any change that the country has been through since 2013, is that right? no, i am saying, sweden is facing enormous tensions because we have been generous in welcoming people from syria, afghanistan, many other countries where there is war oppression. last year we had 36000 and upon the need —— unaccompanied minors. the challenges are very big and daunting but it does not mean that you can blame everything that is happening that you don't like in society on immigrants. we have two, on the contrary, show leadership and the more to integrate them in the
labour market and the - system labour market and the school system and to welcome them in our societies. your ambassador has asked for clarification from donald trump. if president trump still welcome in sweden? we are, sweden, is a country that loves the united states, loves the people of the united states. we have a very close relationship and culture, politics, business, of course. i was just now at the security conference where there with a big delegation from the united states. we a re a big delegation from the united states. we are building bridges. we wa nt states. we are building bridges. we want dialogue. we are just asking for clarity. the unpredictable it we have at the moment is not helpful. thank you forjoining us. i am sorry about some of the sound problems on that line there. the home office has said some asylum claims from child refugees in france could be reviewed following growing pressure from campaigners and mp5. two mps, including the chair
of the home affairs committee yvette cooper, are visiting dunkirk and calais today where some unaccompanied minors are living in the hope of getting to the uk. i think these are terrible conditions that you have got people living in. britain and france did some really good work to clear the camp in calais, to get children and families with kids into safe, secure accommodation and yet it all seems to have now fallen apart and you have a place like this and it is getting worse all over again. that what is so troubling. some of the is what is so troubling. some of the children of this year with their families but others are unaccompanied. you have spoken to what heme they what haee they got to iliaihat haee they got to say? them. what have they got to say? some of the teenagers some of the unaccompanied teenagers have got no family here at all. you got 30—year—old sleeping in a have got 30—year—old sleeping in a big heart with 80 other people. —— you have got 13—year—olds sleeping ina you have got 13—year—olds sleeping in a i room with 80 other adults. in a big room with 80 other adults. they are talking about how unsafe
they feel. you can see the risks they feel. you can see the risks they are exposed to from trafficking, exploitation, prostitution and yet we have got children in these conditions. you're going to have an emergency evidence session on this on wednesday. what is the purpose behind that? the government. said they have government have said they have cancelled the dubs amendment but also stopped the fast track scheme for people who have got family in britain as well. they say that this britain as wellﬁhsyssythat this britain as wellﬁhaysaythat this in order to prevent trafficking. is in order to prevent trafficking. my is in order to prevent trafficking. my concern looking around here is that actually this is play back into the hands of the traffickers and this is making the problem worse. that is what we want to find out with the emergency evidence session as well. do you feel that the government have notjustified or given evidence of why they are stopping this scheme? the government has to stop dubs scheme, only working for six months. they have given no give evidence. they have said that by stopping it that will prevent trafficking but i think if you look around - my fear is you look around here, my fear is that some of these children,
teenagers, are being driven straight back into the arms of the traffickers. exploitation, prostitution rings, that is what is real danger is. isn't the danger that the government sees it as you once again making france a magnet for people who want to come across channel? the danger is that without proper secure systems, without having britain and france working together on - managed systems together an preper. managed systems help together on proper. managed systems help these lone together on proper. managed systems help these [one child refugees, to help these [one child refugees, instead what happens is they end up in the arms of traffickers and it is the traffickers that are driving into very dangerous situations, them into very dangerous situations, often leaping onto lorries, taking risks and that is bad for everybody. yvette cooper speaking there. in a moment a summary of the business news this hour but first, the headlines on bbc news... a big overspend for the nhs in england. latest figures show it is hundreds of millions of pounds over budget. nearly all english local authorities

and that is all i had to say. if people are looking to you now and are supporting your decision, where does your boat or where does your allegiance go to now more widely, not stoke, but in terms of your electoral allegiances? it would be for the liverpool people. is that labour, is that the conservatives? labour? no, no. iam labour, is that the conservatives? labour? no, no. i am grass-roots politics through and through. i basically i still take up that challenge of fighting local politics on the doorstep and helping the city that i love, liverpool, but not under the flag of ukip. thank you for joining under the flag of ukip. thank you forjoining us. thousands of families live with or look after relatives who have dementia, including the comedian david baddiel. his 82—year—old father has a rare type of dementia called pick‘s disease. its symptoms mean david baddiel‘s dad, colin, has no inhibitions — he swears a lot, he says inappropriate things, and he's sometimes aggressive.
for the last twelve months, david has been making a documentary about his dad, and his and his brothers' attempts to look after him. well, earlier this morning david baddiel told victoria derbyshire about his father's dementia. when i first got the diagnosis of my dad, pick‘s disease, which involves being swearing and aggressive, i said sorry, has he got a disease or have you just met him, because he has always been aggressive and swearing. he has always been one of those blokes who can only really express itself in that way, he is a very intelligent man. emotionally, he only expressed himself through banter, but then i noticed that it wasn't that, it was an extreme version of what he always was. part of it is funny, there is no point in pretending it is not, as part of it is very sad and i am trying to find a balance all the time. what is it like trying to look after him? you have help with a carer but what is it like when you go round? we are lucky to be able to afford a carer.
lots of families can't and we go and meet some of the families of people who have to live with them all the time. i see my dad about once a week. i saw him yesterday and part of the problem is that the disease, and the documentary charts this, changes all the time. it is different every day was sometimes you can go and he is constantly abusing me or someone else and as i say in the documentary, i can't take my children because he swears so much. other times he is very quiet and withdrawn. the weird thing is that part of me definitely prefers the abuse because at least i know with the abuse that it is my dad and there is spirit, engaged, lively. the thing i fear more is him just turning off. it is a weird thing, it is challenging, but i hold onto it. i hold onto the difficult side of him. why can't your children go round? he swears, so what? when we started filming, when he was in the grip of it, he is still there but he's quieter
now, he would also be sexually inappropriate and, you know, towards my daughter and any woman, really and we could not deal with that and i just thought it was unfortunate in terms of, you know, my kids only have one grandparent left and i want them to have, if possible, some nice sense of him. and since the disease has calmed down i have been able to take my children round and at the same time that is when i worry. i worry that now he is with the —— really withdrawn. david baddiel talking to victoria derbyshire. and the documentary the trouble with dad is on channel 4 this evening at 9pm. and you can see the full version of that interview on the victoria derbyshire programme page: bbc.co.uk/victoria. right now we will take you to a look
at the weather. if you have got some sunshine at the moment averages are responding nicely. this was cambridgejust responding nicely. this was cambridge just a couple of hours ago. absolutely dutiful out there. temperatures quite widely into the mid—teens. —— absolutely beautiful. there is quite a lot of cloud out to the west and that is producing some drizzle and some coastal and hill fog. things should improvejust drizzle and some coastal and hill fog. things should improve just a little as a weather front continues to move its waste outwith. brighter skies, breezy with a scattering of showers likely across much of scotland. not a bad after leading to northern ireland, still mild here and decent sunshine coming through on the scottish borders and north—east england. but that weather front producing rain. nothing extensive, nuisance rain, really.
there will be some coastal and hill fog continuing. the best of the sunshine perhaps at the end of the afternoon through the midlands up on the part of hertfordshire, east anglia as well. temperatures around 17 celsius. way above average for this time of year. will arrive. it arrives as our weather front seeks its way southward. to start with not much in the way of rain but as we go through the night we might see it packing up a little across wales, the midlands and southern england. it stays mild here, slightly colder north and west. maybe a localised frost in 12—macro rural spot. there will be a sunny start with a scattering of showers. make the most of it. further south hour weather front continues to push its way towards the m11 corridor by lunchtime, slowly easing away. at the same time the winds will start to strengthen and more wet and windy weather pushes into the far north and west. mild for all seven to 13
celsius beehive. as we move out of tuesday the winds will start to pick up, particularly on the back edge. we see the isobar squeezing together, severe gales likely across the far north of scotland. there will be outbreaks of rain to come as we move through wednesday. it will bea we move through wednesday. it will be a windy day with a scattering of showers, turning increasingly wintry to higher ground here. we keep that miles theme of weather with that weather front down to the south but it won't last. the mild i gradually being squeezed back to the near continent. by the end of the week clare ta kes continent. by the end of the week clare takes over so from friday you will notice a difference, particularly in the strength of the wind. more from me later on. —— the colder air takes over. good afternoon and welcome to bbc news. the house of lords are to begin debating article 50, the bill paving the way for the start of brexit. a big overspend for the nhs in england, latest figures
i don't want to hold up what the british people want. a big overspend for the nhs in england, latest figures show it is hundreds of millions over budget. a big rise in council tax bills across england as local authorities try to tackle the social care crisis. most households could be charged 5% more from april. trouble for the new leader of ukip; two senior party officials in liverpool quit citing "crass insensitivity" over the hillsborough tragedy. in the next hour we'll look at the vice president reassurances to european allies. us vice president pence, speaking to european leaders said that washington is still committed to partnership and cooperation. whatever our differences, our two continents share the same heritage, values and above all, the same purpose, to promote peace
