get involved and see that their policies will not be followed at a local level. a warning from the children's commissioner that children in the north of england are more likely to go to poor schools and leave education earlier than those in the south and australia captain steve smith is banned for one match and fined his entire match fee by cricket's world governing body for his part in a ball—tampering incident in south africa. good morning. it is monday the 26th of march. welcome to bbc newsroom live. jewish leaders have strongly criticised jeremy corbyn, accusing him of failing to tackle anti—semitism. the board of deputies of britishjews and thejewish leadership council say the labour leader is "repeatedly found alongside people with blatantly
11:02 am
anti—semitic views" but "claims never to hear or read them". mr corbyn has been condemned for his apparent support six years ago of the painter of an allegedly anti—semitic mural. mr corbyn has apologised and promised to meet representatives of the jewish community, as alex forsyth reports. labour's leader is facing direct criticism. jeremy corbyn is accused of failing to stamp out anti—semitism in his party. the latest row relates to an offensive mural in east london, which back in 2012, jeremy corbyn seemed to support. he later said he should have looked more closely at the disturbing image. nonetheless, in a letter, two prominentjewish groups condemned the labour leader. they wrote... i also will be asking him how he could possibly say that he didn't
11:03 am
really look at the mural which he supported, which was grotesquely anti—semitic. i want him to explain to me how he is a member of two notably anti—semitic facebook groups and he says he didn't notice. everything withjeremy corbyn is, well i hear no evil, i see no evil, i wasn't looking, i didn't see anything. frankly, i find that strange. in his own statement, mrcorbyn said... he said he utterly condemned anti—semitism and it would not be tolerated. his comments welcomed by some. i'm pleased thatjeremy has said he will meetjewish leaders within the next few days, weeks and months and we are going to continue to campaign to stamp out racism and anti—semitism of any kind
11:04 am
in the party, at every level. but for others, the labour leader must still do more to prove he is tough enough on this issue, which continues to plague him. 0ur assistant political editor norman smith is at westminster. as we heard and our report, this is an issue which has been going on for some time. why is it blowing up like this now? it is simply a case that the mural episode was the final straw for many in thejewish community, and what has struck me about their criticism is that it is specifically directed atjeremy corbyn, he is directly blamed personally and politically for allowing a culture to build up in the labour party where people seem to feel it is ok to express
11:05 am
anti—semitic views. what members of the jewish committee anti—semitic views. what members of thejewish committee appointed two is not just thejewish committee appointed two is notjust mr thejewish committee appointed two is not just mr colburn thejewish committee appointed two is notjust mr colburn popped back well—known ties to groups like how mass and his brother, or the fact that they feel disappointed and unhappy that incidents of anti—semitism have not been dealt with robustly, it is because they feel mr colburn‘s political viewpoint, what they call his far left worldview, basically condones and countenances verily led attacks on israel as a sort of imperialist colonialist oppressive force, and that that licenses anti—semitic views. they think mr colburn‘s ideological and instinctive criticism of israel has created eight culture, the problem of anti—semitism in the labour party, they say, can be directly linked to mr corbyn‘s politics. they say, can be directly linked to mr corbyn's politics. there was an enquiry into anti—semitism in the
11:06 am
party in 2016, and it is said there was too much clear evidence of ignorant attitude, although the party has not been overrun by racism. have things changed since then, and what more could or should jeremy corbyn be doing? the letter also says that the enquiry said... there was criticism. the difficulty he faces is many of those expressing anti—semitic views or highly critical views of israel came to be his supporters on the left of the party. secondly, many of his supporters that many of his supporters that many of his supporters take the view that this isa supporters take the view that this is a proxy view —— proxy war by old blairites and others to try and damage mr colburn, they do not believe he is an anti—semite. they point to his record in tackling and confronting racism and they say this is ridiculous, they arejust confronting racism and they say this is ridiculous, they are just trying to damage mr corbyn. but the other
11:07 am
side of it, which i think makes it ha rd to side of it, which i think makes it hard to deal with, is that many on the left, the defining issue is class. they take the view that israel and dues are on the wrong side of the class war as they see it, because they see them as stereotypical, wealthyjewish bankers. they have an anti—semitic template. therefore it has become a culture war within sections of the labour party, but it is a huge challenge for mr colburn, because at night boj meeting at the labour party, there will be mps demanding more action, there is none concerned that in some constituencies there have been some unpleasant examples of anti—semitism, in haringey there we re of anti—semitism, in haringey there were reports of jewish of anti—semitism, in haringey there were reports ofjewish councillors quitting cars they could not carry on with the level of abuse they were receiving, there is real pressure within sections of the labour party promised a comment to take much more ofan promised a comment to take much more of an aggressive stance in combating
11:08 am
anti—semitism. today, we have not heard anything more from mr colburn, andi heard anything more from mr colburn, and i surmise his team are working out how they should handle this. i would suggest he's probably not go to baby to keep his head down. we had to come out and say something. he must signal he is due to take further measures. we're hoping to speak injust further measures. we're hoping to speak in just a few moments to a labourmp speak in just a few moments to a labour mp who is supporting jeremy corbyn. in terms of putting it right, going forward, the party, he is saying he is reaching out to members of the jewish is saying he is reaching out to members of thejewish community and will be speaking to them in the coming days, they are saying that they have been trying to get to speak to him for some time, invitations have not been forthcoming but have been ignored. what is the structure going forward? it appears the british board of deputies asked to seejeremy corbyn this afternoon at 5:30pm before this demonstration. jeremy corbyn bars like office said no, they are not willing to see the british board of
11:09 am
deputies, it will be the chairman of the parliamentary labour party who receives their letter of complaint. there has not been an immediately responsive stance from mr colburn, albeit as you say, he said in the coming days and weeks he hopes to meet and establish a better dialogue with representatives of the jewish community. the difficulty is this has been going on for so long and relations have become so sour that some sections of the jewish committee feel angry and embittered, there is an awful lot of bridge building that has to take place. we will go back to that story as soon as he gets beat to him. the brexit activist who has accused the vote leave campaign of exceeding legal spending limits said his claims will be backed up by evidence presented to mps. shahmir sanni alleged that the official brexit campaign used a different group, beleave, to overspend.
11:10 am
both groups deny any wrongdoing. well a reminder this coming thursday marks 1 year to go before the uk leaves the eu and throughout this week we will be putting your questions to a range of experts. you can tweet us your questions be emailing them to askthis at least 64 people have died and more than a dozen people if are missing, after a fire broke out at a shopping centre in siberia. many of the victims are said to be children. the blaze started on an upper floor of the shopping complex while many of the victims were in cinemas. 0ur correspondent andrew plant reports. try to reach the floor windows, pointing the smoke billowing outside. the fire started here on sunday, dozens were evacuated, but it was clear dozens more were missing. many of them children.
11:11 am
translation: the area is about 1500 square metres. to add and edit images are officers are working on site as well as 62 units of equipment. airborne grouping are taking part. we are taking all necessary measures to extinction the fire. the shopping centre has a complex construction. there is a lot of combustible material. people gathered to stand and stare at the fai are unfolded. witnesses said, it have to be bloody upper floors, fai are unfolded. witnesses said, it have to be bloody upperfloors, and said some had jumped from windows to try and escape from the flames. an industrial city of more than half a million, it is one of russia's co—producing regions. more than 2000 kilometres east of moscow. already there are reports the fire began near a cinema and children's entertainment centre. president putin has idly sent his condolences to friends and family of the victims
11:12 am
authorities say at criminal investigation will now begin to try to find out what caused the fire. back to the controversy surroundihg corbyn, let's speak now to the labour mp, lloyd russell—moyle. he's in our brighton studio. jewish groups say thatjeremy corbyn says one thing but they feel something very different, they feel ignored and they are saying he is effectively a poster boy for anti—semitism. what do you say?” don't anti—semitism. what do you say?|j don't believe that is true. jeremy has been very clear that there are some pockets of nasty anti—semitism in our party. i have seen a locally and nationally. those people broadly are in the process all have been expeued are in the process all have been expelled from the party, and that is quite right. jeremy has offered to meet with both the organisers, jewish leaders and board of
11:13 am
deputies, and he is willing to do that at a convenient time for whenever they wish. those things are positive. we have got a new general secretary conveyed to the party, she has been very clear that we are going to stamp this out. expulsions in the party, not down to the leader, it is the general secretary and the nec that is responsible for that. they need to take very clear action. jeremy has been an anti—racist campaigner for many yea rs. anti—racist campaigner for many years. he does not have an anti—semitic bone in his body. years. he does not have an anti-semitic bone in his body. why'd you think they feel so strongly about this? this has been going on for a very long time. you say that jeremy corbyn will be meeting the leaders of those jewish groups. jeremy corbyn will be meeting the leaders of thosejewish groups. they say they have been reaching out to him and is shadow cabinet correctly says he was elected in 2015, and they have been ignored. as i said, my understanding is that he has offered a meeting about hope that goes ahead, and we are able to tackle that. issues of expulsion
11:14 am
within the party are not down to the leader. clearlyjeremy within the party are not down to the leader. clearly jeremy needs within the party are not down to the leader. clearlyjeremy needs to set the tone, which he has done in numerous statements. he has said anti—semitism is rebuilding. we must make sure that we are stepping up. —— anti—semitism is rebuilding. the labour party needs, expects it to be better, better than the rest. that is why we need to take further action, not to assume that no action needs to be taken elsewhere as well. the facebook post which is at the heart of this was put up in 2012. why has it taken so long forjeremy corbyn to say it was a mistake to offer support over that? because i suspect, like many of us, you make a comment on a long thread of a facebook post, you do not look at the detail when you are in a right of that particular post, and you never look at it again. that is how most people use this. i suspect
11:15 am
jeremy corbyn never looked at it again offered it a second thought. clearly, that picture is rebuilding. jeremy has said it was quite right that it was taken down. —— that picture is disgusting.” that it was taken down. —— that picture is disgusting. i hear that you are saying you believe it is wrong to accusejeremy corbyn of anti—semitism can you say, look at his record on antiracism. 0thers anti—semitism can you say, look at his record on antiracism. others who believe that there is anti—semitism will say, it is more about a class warand a will say, it is more about a class war and a culture war than issues of racism. how do you respond?” war and a culture war than issues of racism. how do you respond? i would say, jeremy has spoken many times around issues of anti—semitism, around issues of anti—semitism, around issues of not targeting individuals. labour is an
11:16 am
anti—racist, anti—semitic, party. it is not the case to suggest that any group is being targeted. we are also a socialist party and maybe even redistribution of wealth, but that has nothing to do with this particular issue, because those things are not unrelated. just like why did you give the need to mention that? autobot because you mentioned class. it was in response to your question. it is a lake that is being made. that is why i mentioned it. my response is that they are not related. the idea of redistributing wealth has no relation with one thing to kind of been nasty to a group of people. in fact, it is opposed. the idea of class politics that we want to redistribute wealth and power is about wanting to support all those that have been
11:17 am
discriminated against and historically, in britain, jewish people have been discriminated against and we need to fight that. jeremy corbyn says he is sorry for anti—semitism in the party. jewish leaders say enough is enough. people have died in a shopping centre leisure centre in russia. 11 people are being treated in hospital. the american adult film actors stormy daniels says she was intimidated into keeping quiet by allegations that she had sex with donald trump. and in sport, in live cricket captainjo and in sport, in live cricket captain jo root admits and in sport, in live cricket captainjo root admits his side need to be more consistent overseas as they slumped to a tenth away defeat in12 they slumped to a tenth away defeat in 12 tests. they lost the first test against new zealand by an innings and 49 runs. a crisis engulfing comer steeling cricket continues as steve smith steps down as captain of his indian premier
11:18 am
league team. to prevent any distractions for the players ahead of the new season. and ronnie 0'sullivan says stephen hendry potts record of 36 ranking titles is well within his grasp after beating shaun murphy to win the players championship. he is nowjust three short of hendry‘s record. i will be back but wanderers stories just after half past. —— back with more on those. paul adams is following the story in moscow. the death to be rising all morning from a figure from 35 overnight to in excess of 60. the number of missing has been coming down and i think we are reaching a point when there will be some confusion about exactly how many people have died in this terrible fire. it seems, as you
11:19 am
mentioned, a terribly large number will be children. there are reports ofa group will be children. there are reports of a group of 12—year—olds from a nearby village who were all had a screening of a film is one of the cinema arts. 0ther screening of a film is one of the cinema arts. other reports of children being caught up in this. we still do not know how the fire started. there are all sorts of conflicting theories, one being it might have been an political short—circuit, and other that it might have been a trial is set in fire with a lighter. investigators are there, they are starting to look at this, they have already called some people in for questioning. we have had in the last hour from russia's children's have had in the last hour from russia's child ren‘s rights commissioner who has urged the owners of similar complexes around the country to urgently look at their safety precautions, because u nfortu nately their safety precautions, because unfortunately it does seem as though this sort of thing, albeit not quite such a horrendous kiel, seems to happen with regularity across russia. wanted to ask you about eu
11:20 am
countries we calling russian ambassadors. what is the latest? this was the days when we thought we might expect to see some sign up of that from across eu members. no sign yet, except we do know that the baltic republics have some of the russian ambassador, as has the polish government, that may be the prelude to moves by those governments. 0ther prelude to moves by those governments. other governments may be looking at the situation in siberia and thinking, perhaps on a day of such tragedy involving so many children, this might not be the best moment for a collective action against russia. we both see as the day unfolds, but at the moment, i think all eyes are on the awful events taking place around 2000 miles east of here. an 11—year—old british boy with autism has received tens of thousands of pounds in compensation after his parents sued the scouts for discrimination. ben gleeson's mum and dad were told
11:21 am
he couldn't take part in certain activities. the scout association has said the handling of the case was ‘completely unacceptable' and is considering mandatory training for its volunteers. ican i can talk down to clive coleman. how unusual is this? have there been any other cases like this? dodoo they say it is unusual, although they say it is unusual, although they have made a full apology and said that then and his family were not supported in this case. the background, ben is 11, hejoined the tenth harpenden scout pack in 2015, previous to that he had been a beaver, which is the precursor to a scout. his parents say that they had discussions with the pack leaders about ben's autism and how best to deal with it. the is very intelligent and has — telling autism. sometimes he can become
11:22 am
distressed and there was an incident ata camp distressed and there was an incident at a camp where he was asked to fight some shoes, he could not find the man became distressed. he ran away from the group, but remain inside of leaders. later he refused to ta ke inside of leaders. later he refused to take part in an egg and spoon race because he has a phobia about spoons. the leaders entered into discussion about how to supervise and organise support for ben. this is the response to those discussions that his mother told us about. they said initially that they do a draft plan, which i read to us and we could meet and discuss it, but what they did was presented us with a pa ct they did was presented us with a pact plan which was more extreme than the original suggestion, so they originally suggested that we just turned up as a one—to—one external event and after we questioned this and said we thought this was discrimination and could we not talk about it, they then sent
11:23 am
out a plan that excluded him from all bus travel, athletics in the park, all events he had previously done before without incident, and insisted on one—to—one. in effect they said they were not going to ta ke they said they were not going to take any responsibility for him. he would be our responsibility on any car that evening. their idea of working with us must telling us what their adjustments were and if we do not accept them, we could leave. what was the nature of the legal action? boni relations broke down. ben's pair is but a action under the equality act, anyone who provides a service is under a duty to provide reasonable and justice to accommodate anyone with a disability, in this instance it was then that is autism. there was also an action for breach of privacy and data protection that arose out of e—mails that were sent by the pack

and a briefing to parents. entered on the case was contested by tenth harpenden but settled, and £42,000 was paid by way of settlement to ben and his family. his portion of that is being held in trust and his pa rents is being held in trust and his parents have also made a donation to an autistic charity. the scout association have given a very full response to ours. in addition to apologising that they have said they are now considering mandatory training for all adult volunteers. around 150,000 adult volunteers who help to support some 500,000 young people in scouting. it is the biggest youth organisation in the uk. mandatory training to those volu nteers uk. mandatory training to those volunteers on how to make reasonable adjustments for young people who have developmental disability such as autism. the national crime agency says more than five thousand potential victims of trafficking and modern slavery were referred to the uk authorities last year. the number of children thought to be victims went

11:26 am
she says, she was threatened in a las vegas carpark along with her infant daughter. a guy walked up on me, and said to me, "leave trump alone, forget the story." then he leaned around and looked at my daughter and said, "a beautiful little girl, it'd be a shame if something happened to her mum." and then he was gone. 11 days before the presidential election in 2016, stormy daniels was paid £90,000 by mr trump's personal lawyer. was it hush money to stay silent? yes. the story was coming out again. i was concerned for my family and their safety. we're gonna to build a wall, folks... critics call that an illegal campaign contribution, but the white house said it wasn't and denies the affair. mr trump's lawyer denies threatening stormy daniels, and the president himself returned to washington from a weekend in florida without his wife. james cook, bbc news, los angeles. the bbc understands that the investigation

11:31 am
to bat all day to get a draw. stokes hit 66, but he went and when chris woa kes followed, the hit 66, but he went and when chris woakes followed, the hoped faded. james anderson was the last man to go as new zealand won by and innings and 49 runs. 0ne go as new zealand won by and innings and 49 runs. one of the biggest scandals in cricket continues to gather pace. australia's steve smith has stepped down as the captain of the indian premier league side rajasthan after being banned and fined for his part in ball tampering in south africa. questions have been asked about australia's bowling in the series with england. stuart broad has questioned the claim the tampering was a one off. he said in the ashes they reverse swung the ball in all the matches, sometimes in conditions where you wouldn't expect it to reverse. a cricket
11:32 am
a nalyst expect it to reverse. a cricket analyst said he would be surprised if it was the first time it had happened. there were rumours the done it before. —— they have done it before. one or two teams attempted to try illegal means. generally i think that there is so much at stake with a series like australia against south africa, they wanted to win and reaffirm their status as one of best teams in the world. what it proves is that international cricketers do live in parallel universe and don't believe they will get caught or that they have done anything terribly wrong. and another question is how up wrong. and another question is how up the hierarchy this went. . 0ne journalist said this. australia is on the nose in the cricketing world that they're sledging and their
11:33 am
behaviour has been questioned in the past and this has meant they have no friends whatsoever. so the question is what is darren leighman doing? he has not spoken and in the coming days he won't be the coach any more. and snooker, ronnie 0'sullivan said steven hendry's record is within his grasp. he beat sean murphy to claim a joint record fifth title of the season. 10—4 the final score. his 33rd ranking title and he is three short of the record. that is all the sport for now. more in the next hour. let's get more now on the letter from twojewish groups accusing jeremy corbyn of failing to tackle anti—semitism. representatives from the board of deputies of british dues and thejewish leadership council will hold a protest
11:34 am
outside parliament later. the labour leader has apologised for the "pockets of anti—semitism" in the party, and promised to meet members of the jewish community. with me is our religion editor, martin bashir. how serious is anti—semitism in the country? very serious a charitable organisation in 2017 recorded a record number of anti—semitic incidents. that was just in record number of anti—semitic incidents. that wasjust in england and wales. but this is mirrored across europe and to the united states. in the united states, there was an increase in 2017 of 57% of anti—semitic incidents reported there. earlier this month, anti—semitic incidents reported there. earlierthis month, lord sachs said any political party has
11:35 am
to a cce pt sachs said any political party has to accept zero tolerance to this and in his previous writings he has suggested that because anti—semitism is so historic, when it rises in cultures, it reveals that communities are not at ease with themselves and in britain we are at record levels for this. what form has it taken? that is interesting, if you look at the community security trust report it talks of verbal abuse, desecration of property and buildings and physical attacks. there has been an increasing use of anti—semitic tropes and the idea that dues were responsible for the collapse of financial markets in 2008 or that israel was behind the 9/11 attacks. these ideas are notjust operating in this country, you remember during the 2016 campaign, donald trump's
11:36 am
campaign issued a poster which featured hillary clinton, dollar bills and a star of david with the words, most corrupt candidate ever on that poster. that is very similar, not dissimilarto on that poster. that is very similar, not dissimilar to the mural in london. that has been disturbing. i covered holocaust memorial day and i was told by several ideas was the idea that the expression of anti—semitism is not just idea that the expression of anti—semitism is notjust overt, but the jibes about dues running the global economy are coming and this happens as dues prepare to mark passover. now, the community is plunged into a discussion about anti—semitism. plunged into a discussion about anti-semitism. kwha what is the
11:37 am
think about why it is increasing? there isn't a social scientific explanation that would give you it, the answer in a nutshell. 0ne explanation that would give you it, the answer in a nutshell. one of the speculations is as we move further from the holocaust, the horrors of second world war, people are less aware of the impact of that horrific event and therefore are being more open about some of their expressions. there is brexit and the rise of various forms of racism that occurred and we know through police reporting that that followed the referendum. but there is no single explanation that i can find. thank you. disabled passengers who are stranded on planes at heathrow airport will not be compensated, its chief executive says. the comments follow criticism of the airport by the bbc‘s frank gardner, who was left waiting for more than an hour and a half because his wheelchair had been misplaced by ground staff. heathrow‘s chief executive —
11:38 am
john holland kaye — said it would be unreasonable for the airport to assume financial responsibility. joining me now via webcam is roberto castiglioni, whose disabled son has had problems while flying. tell us about the problems that your family have experienced. good morning. i think frank's problems are very close to me, because my son experienced the same problems years ago. on numerous occasions like frank did. so i'm very familiar with the issues. i was hoping for a change. and i'm still pushing for change. and i'm still pushing for change. i have to say that there is a simple solution on hand. this is a procedure foreseen by legislation and we have discussed this in a meeting of the heathrow advisory group. i was happy to see the secretary general of the airport
11:39 am
operators committee was on board with doing something about this. some airlines do it better than others. frank said when he travels british airways he doesn't have the same problem. it is an issue i have been contacted by on social media by viewers who have had difficulties, reporting repeated difficulties, in the same way as frank and he had decided to go public on it. why do you think it is not being dealt with? i wouldn't say it is not being dealt with. heathrow was rated poor last year by the civil aviation authority. as a result they took steps to change things. you have to understand that heathrow is a big operation. there is many things that are being changed. the access

advisory group has been involved in some of the changes and have helped people with hidden difficulties to move around easier. we have had another scheme after the example of gatwick and passengers can identify themselves and get a better service. there is a training process, a reva m p of there is a training process, a revamp of the training for security and security is a critical touch point for everybody in an airport. a lot of things are being done. . the ceo of heathrow, who you have mentioned say, i don't think it is reasonable we should take financial responsibility for this. frank's view is that unless there is a financial penalty it will keep happening. what do you think?”
11:41 am
think that we should look at this in a different way. as you know, the para meters a different way. as you know, the parameters for the passengers with disability are set out by the association of civil aviation authorities. a they allow 30 minutes for a person to be disembarked. which i think is appalling. brexit presents an opportunity, because the dft could seize the moment and tighten the parameters and make them more passenger—friendly. tighten the parameters and make them more passenger-friendly. thank you very much forjoining us. the australian cricket captain steve smith has quit as captain of indian premier league side rajasthan royals. his resignation comes after he was banned for one test match and fined his match fee by cricket‘s world governing body— for his part in a ball—tampering incident in south africa. smith claims the team's "leadership group" had a plan, carried out by cameron bancroft,
11:42 am
to tamper with the ball to "get an advantage". the australian pm, malcolm turnball says the scandal "beggars belief". joining me now isjo harman, editor of the wisden cricket monthly. thanks for come in and you have brought a ball with you. what do you think? i think steve smith will have to go as australia captain. i think at the moment the investigation is just trying to work out the extent, how much the team knew about this. he said the leadership was involved. does that involve the coach. if they're all involved, they all have to be banned. because they're all implicated. it has rocked australian cricket and there will be others who will have a wry smile about this, because australia have moralised about the way cricket should be played and talk about the line you shouldn't cross and they have been
11:43 am
caught crossing i. explain how this is done. so you get a new shiny ball at the start and that will swing conventionally. after a time it will stop swinging and make it easier for the batsman and the fielding side will look for reverse swing. so you wa nt will look for reverse swing. so you want a shiny and a rough side. you can shine it with saliva, that is allowed. but to rough the ball up quicker in this instance they have used yellow tape and tried to scrape against the ball and you get a rough and a smooth side and it swings more and a smooth side and it swings more and gives the bowlers an advantage. it is cheating. how often has it been happening? there have cases over the year. in this instance it is how blatantly it was done. the
11:44 am
use of a foreign object, bringing something to ator the condition of ball. south africa's captain was caught ball tampering 18 months ago, using a mind and saliva. there are different aspects to this, the idea of the australian senior group plotting to cheat. that is very different. the other aspect is that steve smith has gone to the most youthful player in the side, who only placed his first match in november and he has done the ball tampering. that has gone down badly with people in the game, who see it as cowardly. thank you. too many children in the north of england are facing the double disadvantage of entrenched deprivation and poor schools, according to a new report by the children's commissioner. anne longfield said a student on free school meals living in hackney, in london, was three times more likely to go to university than a similar
11:45 am
child in hartlepool. simon jones has more. at this school in leeds they aim to give children the best start in life. but it doesn't happy every where. in a report anne longfield said children growing up in the north are more likely to leave education earlier. children living in disadvantaged communities in the north with entrenched disadvantage are being let down. i'm worried about children in disadvantage anywhere, but there is a disproportionate number living in areas of entrenched disadvantage in the north. they have not had the national focus and the backing they need. among her recommendations are boosting teacher recruitment and forums bringing together groups that
11:46 am
work with children. at this college this leeds, many agree action is needed. there is way more opportunity and a lot of investment down south and maybe in the future they might bring it up north. for careers like politics and economics and finance, you have to go to london. but the north is getting better. the report acknowledges many places in the north are thriving and money is being invested to boost the economy there. some breaking news, we hear the south mental health group has been fined relating to two deaths in their care. 0ne group has been fined relating to two deaths in their care. one person was found unconscious at a mental health

more pressure on the australian cricket team today as one major sponsor makes its disappointment in the ball—tampering controversy known. the head of australian airline qantas has told the bbc he wants the authorities to urgently complete the inquiry and take appropriate action. qantas said it was "in discussions" with cricket australia. uber has hit reverse gear in south east asia. the group is selling its ride—share and food delivery business to regional rival grab. the move marks a further retreat from international operations for uber, after it sold its china business to a local rival. both firms describe the deal as a win for their passengers, but analysts warn it could mean higher prices. a warning to people who are opting for rent to own household goods. a combination of low incomes and high interest rates has meant half borrowing to meet payments. the citizen's advice bureau is calling for home credit loans to be capped in the way payday loans are.
11:49 am
as we've been hearing, citizens advice is calling for home credit loans to be capped in the way payday loans are. for people who can't afford to buy essentials like cookers, or washing machines these loans can be a big help. but there are concerns about the charges — sometimes interest is almost 100%. this morning the charity citizens advice is calling for a cap so you'd never pay more than twice the value of what you're buying. they say that would save consumers £62 million in interest. our business correspondent, nina warhurst, went to meet one woman who bought a tv and fridge on rent—to—buy, and told us how the debt can take over. she asked to remain anonymous. if you think about it, you probably would cry, because you know it is
11:50 am
going on for so long and it is so in your case and you have to make the payment. bright house argue they have given you a contract with all the details and twhy did you keep borrowing? they make you know you can get more credit and you can get another item. they call you when you need it and you just take it. people will say just save up need it and you just take it. people will sayjust save up and buy it properly? i can't get credit elsewhere. i need a fridge, if a fridge breaks down. i haven't got the money and they were the only way to get it. joining us now is katie martin, head of news, public affairs and campaigns, at the citizen's advice bureau. as we were hearing, some people don't have a choice, they need that household item and that is why they turn to this method of buying? that's right and we think these are important ways of getting credit and
11:51 am
thatis important ways of getting credit and that is a fair thing to have. but we think that they should be more responsible and there should be affordability checks and that interest isn't charged at an extortionate rate. explain how rent to buy works, i remember my grand pa rents to buy works, i remember my grand parents rented their tv. but this is different. you go in and enter into an agreement to pay back the cost over a period of time. there are often delivery charges and add ones like insurance. we find affordability checks are not carried out in the right way and that the people that are most likely to have problems with these debts that come to see us are more likely to be off work because of health problems, or to be on low incomes. when you say
11:52 am
there are not the normal checks, do you get a search on your credit rate something affordability checks have been tightened up. but we still see people that come to us who are already struggling to get by and behind on council tax and energy bills and have an average of £8,000 debt, but they are still getting products and more products pushed on to them. thank you. world stocks came off six—week lows and us stock futures jumped on monday on optimism that the united states and china are set to begin negotiations on trade, easing fears about a trade war between the world's two largest economies. and sterling has risen on

temperature had a longer impact on our roads. a report said there were over 24,000 miles of roads needing maintenance. the department for transport said they will pay £100 million towards fixing the problem and trying to protect the roads in the future. but local authorities say it is just a small step towards better road maintenance. we welcome the extra money from government, it is very welcome. but when you look at the number of transport authorities, it will end up with relatively little money. we need up to 12 billion to put the roads right and we need it over a long period. so it is not enough. local governments are warning there needs to bea governments are warning there needs to be a longer term funding plan to tackle the state of the roads. but as councils grapple with funding cuts, this extra money could go some way towards filling the holes. the headlines are coming up

groups condemn the labour leader. they wrote have delhi” groups condemn the labour leader. they wrote have delhi i also will be asking him how he can plus be say that he did not look at the mural which he supported which was critically anti—semitic. i want him to explain how he is a member of two notably anti—semitic facebook groups and he said he didn't notice. everything with jeremy and he said he didn't notice. everything withjeremy corbyn is, well, i hear no evil, i see no evil, i was not looking, i didn't see anything. i frankly find that strains my credulity. in his own statement, mr corbyn said...
12:02 pm
iam i am pleased that jamie has said he is going to meetjewish leaders within the next few days, weeks and months and that we are going to continue to campaign to stamp out racism and anti—semitism of any kind in the party at every level. for others, the labour leader must do more to prove he is tough enough on this issue which continues to plague him. let's talk to norman smith and westminster. norman, tell us more about the claims that are being made about the claims that are being made aboutjeremy about the claims that are being made about jeremy corbyn specifically about the claims that are being made aboutjeremy corbyn specifically on this. what is striking is the extent to which this has becoming a row aboutjeremy to which this has becoming a row about jeremy corbyn, the to which this has becoming a row aboutjeremy corbyn, the leader, the man himself and the politics he has houses. 0n the one hand, you have the british board of deputies and the british board of deputies and the jewish the british board of deputies and thejewish leadership the british board of deputies and the jewish leadership council take the jewish leadership council take the view that mr cobb and boult far left worldview —— mr corbyn. has
12:03 pm
given breathing space to anti—semitic views within the labour party, and against that you have mr cobb and's supporters who believe this is a row stoked up by mr corbyn's critics, to undermine his leadership and it would appear it is also opening bitter divisions within the jewish community also opening bitter divisions within thejewish community itself, because one pro—corbyn group have now contacted the british board of deputies for selective synthetic outrage. they are threatening to hold a counter demonstration outside parliament this evening at precisely the same evening as the british board of death these visits going to be holding a demonstration. you get a sense of just be holding a demonstration. you get a sense ofjust the passion now swirling around this whole controversy but it is a row very firmly centred on mr corbyn and his politics. this is not an argument
12:04 pm
about a generic anti—semitic problems in the labour party, it is a controversy specific to mr colburn, whether he has given room to anti—semitism and whether he has done enough to address it. how does he deal with this now, with things at fever pitch? a good question. we have not yet heard anything from mr corbyn today. he issued a statement last night, again condemning anti—semitism, saying it will not be tolerated, but i ignored and there we re tolerated, but i ignored and there were pockets of anti—semitism within the labour party. listening to the british board of deputies and some labourmps, their british board of deputies and some labour mps, their view is that saying there are pockets of anti—semitism fails to acknowledge the scale of the difficulty, and i think what makes it particularly ha rd think what makes it particularly hard forjeremy corbyn to addresses that many of those accused of anti—semitism tend to be those on the left of the party, very strongly pro—palestine, highly critical of israel, and at the same time there isa israel, and at the same time there

12:29 pm
from twojewish groups accusing jeremy corbyn of failing to tackle anti—semitism. representatives from the board of deputies of britishjews and thejewish leadership council will hold a protest outside parliament later. the labour leader has apologised for the "pockets of anti—semitism" in the party, and promised to meet members of the jewish community. simonjohnson is the chief executive of thejewish leadership council — one of the two groups who issued the open letter tojeremy corbyn. he‘s in our central london studio. thank you forjoining us. why have you sent this letter? well it is an unprecedented step, but it comes after just a torrent unprecedented step, but it comes afterjust a torrent of incidents of anti—semitism within the labour party and what prompted this was our willingness and wish to support moderate and jewish members of
12:30 pm
labour party at today‘s parliamentary labour party meeting, really prompted by what we thought was the last straw over the weekend, which was the unsatisfactory way that the labour leader dealt with an anti—semitic mural a number of years ago and justified his decision to support the artist on the grounds of free speech. we felt that was enough. that there was too much going on within the labour party and we needed to send a letter to the parliamentary labour party saying that the party under its current leadership was unable to understand or... where anti—semitism occurred and address the concerns of community. do you think he is not fit to be leader then? no, we are not saying that at all. we are saying as a leader he has a duty to ta ke saying as a leader he has a duty to take real concrete action, since he
12:31 pm
has become leader there have been too many incidents. while he says he has zero tolerance, the actions of the party have not supported those state m e nts the party have not supported those statements and it is time now that firm concrete action is taken from the top down wards to ensure that this almost daily litany of stories that cause concern about anti—semitism within the labour party has been taking place. firm action must be taken. what would firm action look like? there are three areas. first, when they say zero tolerance to anti—semitism, they should mean that. that means that people should be expelled from the party and there are some outstanding case in which that would be the right outcome. anybody trying tojoin the party be the right outcome. anybody trying to join the party who held be the right outcome. anybody trying tojoin the party who held or expressed anti—semitic views should not be allowed in and people should stop saying that this, these accusations are a form of a construct accusations are a form of a co nstru ct to accusations are a form of a construct to defeat criticism of
12:32 pm
israel or to counter, defeat the labour party and the to recognise when people use zionist as a term of abuse and say dues control the world‘s media are the financial system, when they accuse dues of collaborating with nazis or supporting isis, these types of things are deeply upsetting smears. and thirdly, we think that there should be an education session led by the jewish community with the labour party, with the leader and the leader‘s office to explain once and for all where anti—semitism occasion curse and where the labour party leader‘s world view crosses into anti—semitism. party leader‘s world view crosses into anti-semitism. jeremy corbyn says he will meet members ofjewish community. i have read that we are waiting for a formal invitation for that. he says he accepts there are
12:33 pm
pockets of anti—semitism. well it has taken him two and a half years to admit that, but he doesn‘t accept really the role he plays and accept that when an anti—semitic mural is placed on a wall in london and the local labour—controlled authority wa nts to ta ke local labour—controlled authority wants to take it down, he thinks it is more important to defend the artists right of free doff of ex—0‘ — fwree dom of ex—pegs. —— freedom of expression. he has not been able to recognise that and we are fed up of explaining it to him. we want to make sure it is understood once and for all. let‘s speak now to jenny manson, chair ofjewish voice for labour — which is a network forjewish members of labour which is non—affiliated to the party. what is your view, do you believe
12:34 pm
thatjeremy corbyn is a figure head for anti—semitism. thatjeremy corbyn is a figure head for anti-semitism. no i think he is one of the least person to accuse of racism i have come across. i have beenin racism i have come across. i have been in the labour party nearly 50 years, i'm a due and i have not met anti—semitism, i can't think of a single instance that i have met it. there is not rampant anti—semitism in the labour party and jeremy corbyn has done a lot to deal with cases that, allegations of anti—semitism. we had a report that was excellent. but the evidence from the data that has been researched is extreme anti—semitism comes on the extreme anti—semitism comes on the extreme right and always has done. there is little anti—semitism in the labour party. . you say you have not
12:35 pm
encountered anti—semitism, there have been reports of others experiencing an anti—semitism. have been reports of others experiencing an anti-semitism. they have to be look at carefully. what is happening the cases are being looked at carefully and unlike maybe in other parties, because of the concern thatjeremy in other parties, because of the concern that jeremy corbyn and others have and we speak to them regularly, we are not affiliated, because we only formed last summer and yes we have got a disciplinary unit and they're looking at allegations. you have to apply law and naturaljustice. allegations. you have to apply law and natural justice. jackie allegations. you have to apply law and naturaljustice. jackie haw we are walker has been named as anti—semitic. and for some reason the press seem to think that if you say someone is anti—semitic they are and in an incident is described as
12:36 pm
anti—semitic it is. we have to have anti—semitic it is. we have to have a return to nationaljustice. what do you think is going on here? well, i think there is two alternative underlying issues. one is... let me give you the result, the result is there little conversation about israel or palestinian rights in the labour party. years ago there would be resolutions on palestinian rights regularly. i spoke about palestinian rights, but that was what you might call a safe place. people are nervous of defending palestinians. i'm a due and i don't want a single israeli hurt or violent action by anybody. but i want a resolution of the, applied to the palestinians. i wa nt the, applied to the palestinians. i want the occupation ended. the other point does seem to be a co——ence dent when jeremy corbyn was chosen as leader, twice by the members and
12:37 pm
most of us injewish as leader, twice by the members and most of us in jewish voice for labour are most of us in jewish voice for labourare on most of us in jewish voice for labour are on the left of the party, this tirade of accusations started and it doesn't seem to have listened to what is going on in other parties. i'm not here to condemn tories or liberals, but they have examples a there has been an attack on george soris. why is isn't the board of deputies worry about that today? thank you forjoining us. the inquiry into historical cases of child sexual abuse will hear from victims and survivors in telford in the next few months. the decision comes after it was revealed that up to 1,000 girls in the town could have been victims of grooming since the 1980s. the truth project, part of the independent inquiry into child sexual abuse will give people the opportunity to tell their stories
12:38 pm
without being cross—examined, questioned or challenged. the australian cricket captain steve smith has quit as captain of indian premier league side rajasthan royals. his resignation comes after he was banned for one test match and fined his match fee for his part in a ball—tampering incident in south africa. a little earlier i spoke tojo harman, about the incident. i think steve smith will have to go as australia captain. i think that will happen in the come days. the investigation is trying to work out the extent how much the team knew about hit the. he said the leadership group was involved. does that involve the coach and four or five of the team? if they‘re all involved they all have to be banned. it has rocked australian cricket and others in cricket will have a wry smile about this, because australia have moralised about the way cricket should be played and talk of the line you shouldn‘t cross and here
12:39 pm
they have been caught red handed crossing it. explain more about ball tampering. so you bowl and get a new shiny ball at the start and that will swing conventionally. after a time it will stop swinging and the fielding side will look for a reverse swing. to get that you want a shiny side and a rough side. you can do that naturally by shining with saliva, which is allowed, to rough the side up quicker than it would normally happen in this insta nce would normally happen in this instance they have used a yellow tape which they put on the ground and tried to scrape against the ball to get a rough and a smooth side, it swings more and makes it more difficult for the batsman and giving the bowler an advantage. it is cheating. . how often has it been happening? it is a good question. i would say it is prevalent, in this
12:40 pm
insta nce would say it is prevalent, in this instance it is how blatantly it was done, using a foreign object to ator the condition of the ball. south africa‘s captain was caught ball tampering 18 months ago, he had a mint in his pocket and used it with his is a lie ya. there was no —— with his is a lie ya. here there is the idea of the australian group sitting in a changing room plotting to cheat and steve smith has goon to the most youthful player in the side and he has done the bidding of the tea m and he has done the bidding of the team and done the ball tampering. that has gone down badly with people in the game who see it as cowardly. egyptians have begun three days of voting to elect a new president, in a poll expected to produce a landslide for the incumbent. there are few doubts that president abdul fattah al—sisi will win a second term after most challengers withdrew. the only other candidate
12:41 pm
is the little—known centrist politician, moussa mostafa moussa. mr moussa is known to be a supporter of the president, and said he supports mr sisi‘s re—election. egypt, which has a population of 95 million, is the largest arab country the headlines on bbc newsroom live: the labour leader has said he is "sincerely sorry" for the pain caused by "pockets of anti—semitism" in the labour party. jewish groups say "enough is enough" at least 64 people — including children — have died in a fire at a shopping and leisure centre in russia. 11 people are being treated in hospital. southern health nhs foundation trust has been fined £2 million after admitting failures that led to the deaths of two patients in its care. an extra £100 million is being shared among councils in england to fund repairs to roads damaged by recent storms, the transport secretary has announced. chris grayling said the money would help patch up nearly two million potholes and protect
12:42 pm
roads from future severe weather conditions. it comes in the wake of storm emma and the "beast from the east". 0ur correspondent vishala sri—pathma reports. the beast from the east may have caused disruption, but the drop in temperature had a longer impact on our roads. a report said there were over 24,000 miles of roads needing maintenance. the department for transport said they will pay £100 million towards fixing the problem and trying to protect the roads in the future. but local authorities say it is just a small step towards better road maintenance. we welcome the extra money from government, it is very welcome. but when you look at the number of transport authorities, it will end up with relatively little money. we need up to £12 billion to put the roads right and we need it over a long period. so it is not enough.
12:43 pm
local governments are warning there needs to be a longer term funding plan to tackle the state of the roads. but as councils grapple with funding cuts, this extra money could go some way towards filling the holes. bereaved parents are losing thousand of pounds of bereavement payments after a change in the system. last april, the government cut the time that financial support is made available for a child who has lost a parent. it was previously paid until their 18th birthday but is now for a period of 18 months after the death of their parent. anna collinson reports. three people live in this house, but everywhere you look there are the reminders of a fourth. husband and dad irfon williams. irfon was a person who was full of fun, a la rger—than—life character, i‘d say, and was a friend to everybody.
12:44 pm
irfon was diagnosed with advanced bowel cancer in 2014. he and becky thought that, if he died, she would receive a bereavement benefit until their two sons left full—time education. they were wrong. knowing that he was terminally ill and that one day, you know, he wasn‘t going to recover, and when that day came that was still... although you know, you never prepare yourself for it. irfon died last may. he was 46. i guess you feel it‘s happening to somebody else, it‘s never happening to you. just seeing the children was really difficult. it used to be that if you were a parent and your husband or wife died, the government would give you £2000 and a monthly benefit, which would help with things like child care and could last for up to 20 years. but, after april 6th 2017,
12:45 pm
everything changed. now, a parent whose husband or wife dies will receive a slightly bigger one—off payment but, crucially, the monthly benefit will last for 18 months, instead of up to 20 years. a freedom of information request by the victoria derbyshire programme has found 3,500 people with children have qualified for the new bereavement support payment after the death of their husband, wife, or civil partner. in some cases, families are missing out on up to £100,000 over time, compared to the previous system. the life matters bereavement task force says it‘s making a distressing situation even worse. a statement from the department for work and pensions said... i‘m a nurse.
12:46 pm
i want to work, it‘s important for me to do that. what the benefit does do is support me to work less hours so i can get that balance as a single parent now to be around for the children. i‘d rather my husband than £350 a month. but i am in this situation, and so i have to be mum and dad to my boys, i have to make sure they‘re emotionally secure and safe, and that small amount of money goes a long way to help me to provide that for my children. anna collinson reporting there. a man has admitted causing the deaths of two young brothers in a hit—and—run crash in coventry last month. casper and corey platt—may were on a family trip to the park when they were hit by robert brown‘s car. he has admitted causing their deaths by dangerous driving. he will be sentenced next month. the metoo movement, which has helped highlight sexual
12:47 pm
harassment and abuse across the world, has swept through south korea with surprising speed. hundreds of women say it‘s helped them to find the courage to come forward, in a deeply conservative society. from seoul, laura bicker reports. young women in south korea are fighting for a new future. the metoo movement has taken hold in this socially conservative country and these university students are hoping to see changes in this male—dominated society. it is difficult for women in korea to speak out? i would say more difficult, because there is a tradition that a woman has to be quiet and you know like nice and kind and stuff. but nowadays it is changing, but i think we need too change more. protesters rip through a poster littered with phrases blaming the victims of abuse. these shows of solidarity are giving
12:48 pm
more women the confidence and courage to come forward with their stories. many fear losing their jobs and public humiliation if they complain. but there is a pioneer who led the way. this woman complained about a boss at samsung who had harassed her for years. she wasn‘t believed, she was made an outcast and given no work. but she eventually won her case and now helps others. translation: i‘m very happy when people who come to get advice from me tell me i‘m their role model, then i think it was really worth fighting for. it took four long years of not giving up to beat the corporate giant. in the beginning i said the bigger the fight, the bigger the reward. that is a motto that i apply to all sides of life, but in truth the lawsuit was a very lonely and difficult process. however, after going
12:49 pm
through the hardship and when it all ended well, i realised that it was a fight that i had to do. "the days of discrimination and sexual assault are over," they shout. they will have to keep up the momentum if they‘re to make real change. south korea is ranked as one of the worst places for working women among the 29 advanced nations. i think most of all the corporate culture should be changing. the south korean corporate culture is characterised by old boys network, very close relations. they excluded women's voices and other diverse voices from membership. so that must be corrected. this new strength is not welcomed by all. some have described it as man—hate and say the me too movement is a witch—hunt. but there is quiet determination,
12:50 pm
especially among the young south koreans to change what they know is wrong and sweep away the pillars of this one patriarchal society. almost a third of teenagers in england failed their maths gcse last summer, and the government wants to open more specialist maths schools to try to change that. pupils who fail maths in england have to keep studying the subject until they‘re 19, but most never gain a pass. breakfast‘s tim muffett has visited an apprenticeship training centre in manchester to try to find out why. so if you are doing pi r—squared... all of you try it and see if you agree. i gota d. i got one, which i think is the lowest. not the results they wanted, so these students at the city of liverpool college will all be resitting their maths gcse. just keep doing it and doing it, it does get stressful.
12:51 pm
since 2014 in england, retakes have been compulsory in maths and english for pupils not getting a c, or a four under the new 1—9 marking system. those in full—time education have to keep trying until they are 19. i think it is demoralising for a lot of students, as well, to have to resit the same qualification again and again. i am all for people continuing to do maths. whether that be gcse, necessarily, i don‘t agree with. i think you need it in later life, so i think even though we don't like doing it now, i think it will benefit us. unless the person, like, needs it, for instance, for their course of their career choice in life, i don't think they should be forced to take it if they don't want to. catherine is trialling a new teaching method called maths in context. the students are enjoying it, but the retake odds are stacked against them. if you look back at the number of pupils in england who have
12:52 pm
to retake their maths gcse each year, around 160,000, the vast majority, more than 80%, never pass. which begs the question, what is the point? well, the point is that there are significant earning premiums for those young people that do have a good pass in gcse maths, and of course it will take time for further education colleges to adapt their teaching to ensure that more young people get a good pass. the government is today inviting applications to set up more schools like this. the king‘s college london mathematics school is a centre of excellence for sixth—formers. more than £100 million of investment was announced by the government last year for the study of maths at a—level. if a third of gcse students, approximately, aren‘t getting what is considered to be a pass, shouldn‘t that be a priority? it is also a key priority. we need more people with advanced maths in a modern economy. is it good enough that a third
12:53 pm
of students aren‘t getting a pass? well, it‘s never good enough unless every child is reaching their full potential. we are raising expectations. if at first they don‘t succeed, try and try again. it‘s not an option — it‘s compulsory. ina in a moment the news at one. first the weather. although the day‘s been fine so far, there are changes coming our way. still it has been a beautiful afternoon, plenty of sunshine, for example in this picture showing the clear skies from cumbria. you can see the extent of the sunshine, england and wales keeping a lot of that for the next few hours. scotland some patchy cloud, but thicker cloud is working into western parts of the uk. that is because we have a weather front here and that is going to be edging m, here and that is going to be edging in, bring some rain. that process
12:54 pm
will start as we go on through the next few hours. the cloud thickening in northern ireland. the rain light at first, but turning steadier. although we will have an early touch of frost in scotland, the temperatures will lift. by the end of the night lows of four and ten. that sets up for tuesday and the morning is a soggy start. if you go into scotland in the mountain there will be some snow. but for most it is just will be some snow. but for most it isjust rain. as will be some snow. but for most it is just rain. as the will be some snow. but for most it isjust rain. as the rain clears, we will see some sunshine working in across northern ireland, before spreading on to wales and western england. some sunny spells to end the day. as the sunshine comes out it will feel cooler and fresher. but still temperatures holding up nicely into double figures. highs of 13 degrees in london. there will be a change in the way as we get to the middle of the week. as we draw in
12:55 pm
more of a west, north—westerly wind and the temperatures will be falling. low pressure around as well. so some rain in the north—west of scotla nd well. so some rain in the north—west of scotland and a band of rain probably working across southern england and it may become quite windy in the south—east. temperatures, we are going to see things cooling off. instead of being in double figures, we are looking at highs around seven and nine celsius as we get through wednesday. looking ahead to the easter prospects, u nsettled, ahead to the easter prospects, unsettled, a cool start but turning milder. some rain, but also some spells of sunshine. the best of these on sunday. jewish groups launch a scathing attack on the labour leader, jeremy corbyn, accusing him of repeatedly siding with anti—semites. good morning, good morning. they say mr corbyn is the "figurehead of an anti—semitic political culture" — they‘re planning a protest outside parliament this evening.
12:56 pm
enough is enough with the anti—semitism swirling around the labour party, that is being fostered byjeremy corbyn‘s inaction. we‘ll have the latest from westminster. also this lunchtime... after the deaths of two patients in its care, a £2 million fine for the nhs trust, southern health. an american porn star stormy daniels claims she was threatened to keep quiet about an affair she alleges she had with president trump.
