you're watching bbc newsroom live — it's 11 o'clcock and these are the main stories this morning: mi5 admits for the first time that it failed to track the manchester arena bomber, salman abedi. the attacker blew himself up at an ariana grande concert in 2017, killing 22 people. we found that the system for regulating and reporting purchasing of ingredients used to make explosives was hopelessly out of date in dealing with the threat posed. this facilitating the perpetrators in acquiring the materials they needed. eu and british negotiators agree on a 26—page declaration on britain's future relationship with the union. the wife of matthew hedges — jailed for spying in the united arab emirates — accuses the government of putting british interests above her husband's fate. i was under the impression that they we re i was under the impression that they were putting their interests with
the uae above british citizens‘ rightfulfreedom. the board of the carmaker nissan meets to decide whether to sack its chairman, carlos ghosn — who is accused of financial misconduct. good morning. it's thursday the 22nd of november, welcome to newsroom live, i'm joanna gosling. opportunities to stop the manchester bombing were missed according to a report that has just been published. in a damning report, the intelligence and security committee revealed that the security services moved ‘too slowly‘ to establish how dangerous salman abedi was. he is believed to have been taught bomb—making while in libya, before returning to manchester in may last year to construct his device. 22 people were killed in the attack.
a little earlier — dominic grieve — the chair of the committee laid out criticism of mi5. mis mi5 decided not to place monitoring oi’ mi5 decided not to place monitoring or travel restrictions on salman abedi. this allowed him to return undetected to the united kingdom in the days before he carried out the attack. they should have done so and have now revised their policies in this respect. the case also highlights deficiencies in mi5‘s system for monitoring those not under current investigation. in the case of perpetrators the system for monitoring those seen in the peripheries of more than one investigation. salman abedi‘s case had been flagged up, but systems moved too slowly and that review had
not happened prior to him launching his attack. the question of how closed subjects are managed is critical and it is one which has been the subject of previous recommendations by this committee in a number of reports. this has now been recognised by mi5 and improvements are planned and these must be prioritised. we note in relation to salman abedi that despite being known to mi5 from 2014, despite being known to m15 from 2014, he was not at any point considered for a referral to the prevent programme. the failure to use the prevent programme is similarly not a new issue and we would have expected lessons already to have been learned. mps are answering questions on the committee 110w. answering questions on the committee now. let‘s listen to what has been said. turning to the finsbury park attack, i was this an example of an
attack, i was this an example of an attack that could not have been anticipated or are there areas here where you think things need to change? i don't think there is anything to suggest if this could have bee predicted. the change is this kind of extremism is now regarded as a national security issue, rather than criminality and will be treated as such and focussed oi'i will be treated as such and focussed 011 as will be treated as such and focussed on as such. i think that is the key and correct change that has come out of this, because it must be taken seriously, it was a murderous, horrific attack. but no, i don't know if any of my colleagues want to come in, but we saw nothing to suggest that anybody could have possibly predicted what he was going
to do. chairman, is your committee satisfied that m15 is now thoroughly oi'i satisfied that m15 is now thoroughly on top of the issue of closed and periphery subjects of interest, or is this a work in progress that still isn't up to scratch yet. i'm sure it is work in progress. it is unlikely that you will ever get to an end with it. it is a permanent problem of how you deal with the peripheral sois and the closed, the 21,000 closed sois. the internal review, which has been reported on and it is in lord anderson‘s report, make reference to a number of things that they‘re looking at, sharing
information, categorising the process in different ways, looking at the whole system of referral, which has come up several times. looking at the way they handle data and whether they can use data analysis. there are a number of programmes aimed specifically at this particular area of how you get the needle in the haystack of the people on the periphery of active investigations. is there an end to that? i would doubt it. is there a process ? that? i would doubt it. is there a process? clearly that? i would doubt it. is there a process ? clearly a nd that? i would doubt it. is there a process? clearly and it is clearly reported both in our report and lord anderson‘s report. reported both in our report and lord anderson's report. we shouldn't underestimate the difficulties in this. there are a large number and many may be irrelevant. the question
is how do you flag up if somebody starts featuring in a way that you think in fact we ought to be paying more attention? we highlighted one possible example is when somebody starts cropping up in a very peripheral way but in a number of separate inquiries into other people. as an obvious example. in fairness to m15 they cannot guarantee 100% security and you cannot guarantee you're always going to pick up the correct person. what i think we can say, i think this is an issue that m15 are now taking seriously and have carried out a review of how they might better identify people. isn't it rather late for that. i don't think so,
because it is worth bearing in mind thatjust as because it is worth bearing in mind that just as these terrible terrorist attacks took place, so in fairness to m15, even when these we re fairness to m15, even when these were happening, they were disrupting many others. i think it is easy to forget that. i'm afraid that suggestions by this committee or by m15 that you can guarantee 100% security are simply misplaced. you can't. it is obvious that that is the case. what you can try to do is improve your performance and learn from what you experience. and i think our general conclusion this was an issue that m15 was taking seriously. but how that works out in future is something that the committee may take a continuing interest in, as to how this system of moving people around and identifying peripherals works and i'm sure we will. reporter: can i
ask you about one aspect of the salman abedi case, the time scale, especially moving from clematis to daffodil, which took three weeks to set upa daffodil, which took three weeks to set up a meeting, salman abedi carries out his attack nine days before the meeting is due to take place and m15 says, according to the report, the plot then moved faster than process. doesn‘t that show... a dreadful failure and maybe also a degree of complacency on their part? cani degree of complacency on their part? can i also ask you something else? which is the visits that salman abedi made to libya in 2014, there have been reports of who he may have seen, what he might have seen, have
you received any more details on that from any of the agencies, the sis for example? robin would you like to... the first bit. i think if you look at our report, it is a recommendation aa, but don't try and find it now, but it is basically saying, yes, there is a concern about the length of time it did take. but one has to say that there we re take. but one has to say that there were probably a lot of other things going on. but it is clearly identified as a matter of concern that it did take time. but there was, salman abedi had been identified be i the review process known as clematis and as warranting more investigation. it was slow in carrying out that investigation. and
thatis carrying out that investigation. and that is in the report. i don't think cani that is in the report. i don't think can i comment further. that is the intelligence and security committee revealing details of a report in which they revealed that m15 have admitted that mistakes were made in failing to track the manchester arena bomber prior to events in 2017. salman abedi had effectively been on the radar, but he wasn‘t being properly scrutinised and there are questions about not only what went wrong there and how to prevent that happen again has been an issue that happen again has been an issue that has came up before. a draft agreement on the future relationship between britain and the eu has been agreed between uk negotiators and the european commission. the draft brexit deal
is not legally binding, but calls for an ambitious, wide—ranging economic partnership. leaders of the 27 eu states plan to meet on sunday, where they will vote on whether to endorse the deal. let‘s have a look at what exactly is in the deal. the deal says there is a "determination" to replace the ireland backstop with "alternative arrangements". it emphasises the uk will develop an independent trade policy. but it says the uk will consider aligning with some eu rules and regulations. the president of the european council, donald tusk, announced the declaration, and said it would now be up to european leaders to agree it. he said on twitter: our assistant political editor, norman smith, is in westminster. what do you think about it? how will it go down? : i think what this
tells us is it‘s all systems go. theresa may will be going back to brussels on sunday to sign off the deal. then we are full steam ahead into a commons vote. ahead of that, this afternoon, theresa may will be making a statement to mps on brexit, presumably on this draft document and why this document is key, is because it is seen by downing street as the big sell. their winning argument to convince doubtful tory mps to back mr may. the withdrawal agreement with all the nasty stuff that everyone‘s unhappy about, this document they hope has enough in to it enable tory mps currently opposed to mrs may to stand back and think, maybe not so bad. it contains the obvious stuff such as ending freedom
of movement and the oversight of european exhort ofjustice. but it has a lot of language and suggestion that will be helpful for mrs may in trying to make her deal more palliative to tory mps. on the backstop, it says the uk and the eu share a determination to bring its to an end if it has to be introduced. it also suggests that despite very close customs and regulatory alignment, the uk will be free to develop its own trade developments. it parks the issue of fish and says, we will sort that later. on the crunch issue, which infuriated so many brexiteers, the idea of a common eu rule book, of
that, as far as can i see, there is no specific reference to this idea ofa no specific reference to this idea of a common eu rule book. instead everything is left vague. it talks ofa everything is left vague. it talks of a spectrum of different outcomes. in other words that has been fudged and we don‘t know how we will have this close trading relationship with the eu. but there is enough in here that mrs may will hope will enable her to sell her deal, maybe not to ha rd her to sell her deal, maybe not to hard line brexiteers like jacob rees mogg, but those softly—cooked brexiteers can be brought on board. how would you assess it in terms of bag good deal, theresa may has spoken of getting a bespoke deal, comparisons have been made with deems that other countries have and she said, no, we want something specially tailored and the eu said
no cherry—picking. how does it fall? it is vague and doesn‘t contain the nitty—gritty of how we will be aligned with the eu and spell out the checks that might be needed. it is an ambition. so we don‘t actually have the nitty—gritty. but the language in it, as i say, is what gives mrs may enough to play with to say to brexiteers, it leaves open the option that we can use the sort of smart technology that you guys say is so important, we can use that rather than having to rely on my common eu rule book. it leaves open that option. i think the difficulty is is there enough in here that will give the brexiteers confidence that they can trust that cometh the hour they can trust that cometh the hour they won‘t be sucked back into this eu rule book. because this is not a
legal document. for many brexiteers, they want the commitments written down in black and white and they would prefer it was in the withdrawal agreement, because that is legally binding. in the political hustle and bustle and the fraught few weeks we face, mrs may can say, look, there is language here that says we are determined to avoid the backstop and look at new technology and can develop our own trade policy. she will hope those brexiteers who maybe wobbling, will think, hmm, iwillgive brexiteers who maybe wobbling, will think, hmm, i will give the prime minister the benefit of the doubt and will climb down from their perch of opposition and back her. that is the hope. adam fleming is in brussels. yesterday theresa may came back from
brussels with no agreement. now we have this. we shouldn't do journalism by anecdote, but i spoke to an eu officialfrom the commission back in january to an eu officialfrom the commission back injanuary and they said, this brexit thing is a fascinating intellectual exercise, it is rebuilding the entire uk/eu agreement and that is what we have ended up. page one, paragraph three, let‘s have an ambitious, broad and deep flexible partnership across trade, law enforcement and wider areas of co—operation. that is what the uk wanted to continue with the good bits of the eu/uk relationship, but without free movement and people without the court ofjustice. and page one talks of no more freedom of
movement. there is something for everyone, if your france worried about the single market without conditions attached. there will be conditions attached. there will be conditions adached. if you‘re worried about fishing rights, there isa worried about fishing rights, there is a paragraph restating the eu‘s policy that the future trade relationship will have to address that and there will be a link between the uk and the eu that would allow eu boats into british waters. if you‘re a big british firm, there is stuff here to reassure that lots of stuff will be done to make sure that that trade works and is as easy as possible. if you‘re a brexiteer, one we saw going to downing street the other day, worried about the northern irish border, thinking couldn‘t we solve this with some yet
to be invented technology, there is something for you. if you‘re liam fox and want to negotiate trade deals around the world, it says the uk will have an independent trade policy. if you‘re a remainor, this language to say the relationship can evolve and get closer than the version here and my last point is an exciting moment, there is a lot to be negotiated after brexit day. all of this, as norman said, is aspirational and sets a road map and talks of areas that will be considered in a lot of parallel negotiations. if you thought the brexit talks for the last 18 months was big, you ain‘t seen nothing yet! thank you. the wife of a british student who has been jailed for life for spying in the united arab emirates has
strongly criticised the government‘s handling of the case. daniela tejada said the foreign office failed to act quickly and firmly enough when her husband, matthew hedges, was detained in may. mr hedges, who‘s 31, says he is innocent, and was in the uae to research his phd. daniela spoke to the bbc‘s today programme as soon as she landed at heathrow this morning and said officials had disregarded her views, and appeared to place britain‘s interests in the gulf above those of her husband. i believe they should have taken a firmer stance from the beginning. if not publicly, through their private representations. this is something i feel that they failed to do throughout really. they only started taking a firmer approach and started taking a firmer approach and started taking everything that i had been insisting on for months seriously once matt was released on bail. when you say things you had insisted on, you say things you had insisted on, you had been talking to them and
trying to persuade them to do more? ihad, trying to persuade them to do more? i had, yes. on repeated occasions, probably on a weekly basis. i asked for the foreign secretary‘s representation. i asked for firmer sta nces representation. i asked for firmer stances from the foreign minister. and most definitely from the foreign office in general here in london, to be more proactive, instead ofjust insisting... in details that were really not at the core of the issue. when you... the core issue was that he was being detained and he was being held in unacceptable conditions for something that he didn‘t do. conditions for something that he didn't do. when you said to the foreign office, what did they say to you? theyjust disregarded my requests. they said it wasn‘t part of theirjob, that it wasn‘t part of
their duty that on one occasion one of the case workers actually said that the foreign office did not have a duty of care and so they weren‘t obliged to make such representations. given that we are, we have been very close allies with the uae, did you get the impression that they regarded it as a nuisance? i was under the impression that they we re i was under the impression that they were putting their interests with the uae above a british citizen‘s rightful freedom and his welfare and his right to, notjust a fair trial, just to freedom. they didn‘t, they we re just to freedom. they didn‘t, they were stepping on eggshells instead of taking a firm stance. no allies should be treating a fellow country‘s citizens like that. and there is no reason why they should think that a close ally would be
sending... you know an undercover agent to spy on them. it is absurd. also speaking on the programme, the health secretary matt hancock said the case had the potential to damage diplomatic relations betweent the uk and the uae. we have seen no evidence to back up these charges and there are clearly going to have to be serious diplomatic repercussions. the question of why a friend of the uk should act like this is a perfectly reasonable one. i understand that daniela is going to meet the foreign secretary later today. the foreign secretary has already raised this case personally with the crown prince on the 12th of november, so before the hearing. the foreign office has been acting on his behalf at the highest possible levels. let‘s get more now from our
middle east reporter paul blake who‘s in dubai. what is the latest from there? this morning the local press here in the uae, this is the national, a pro—government newspaper here is head lines on verdict not final, citing the attorney general. this is also seen in the state—run news agency, carrying the statement from the attorney general. so it seems to be in some ways the message that is being pushed out is that the verdict is not final and that matthew hedges can appeal. that seems to be interesting, because it is coming in response to jeremy hunt, interesting, because it is coming in response tojeremy hunt, the british foreign secretary, releasing a strong statement saying he was
shocked and statement and that it ran contrary to assurances he was given. he was out last week the meet with leaders here and he is said to have brought up the issue of matthew hedges. where we go from here is unclear. it seems he does have 30 days to appeal. what will come of that, we will have to wait and see what hearings are held. thank you. joining us now by phone from dubai is abdulkhaleq abdulla. he‘s a professor of political science and former senior fellow at the london school of economics.. thank you forjoining us. he does have the right to appeal within 30 days. if that happens, how would events play out from there? well, of course, he has the 30 days to appeal and it is his right and it is up to him. i think the case stands against him. i think the case stands against him. there are apparently solid
evidence that the court has heard and the sentence itself for life in prison, this indicates the charges, spying for the uk, the court didn‘t have any option but to give him this harsh treatment. the concern obviously is that it was a five minute hearing, he didn‘t have any legal representation, no evidence was presented, as far as anybody could see, and that hearing after five minutes culminated in a life sentence? no i think the five minute thing is not true. the investigation has been going on for a long time. there was a session before the last one. the five minute was a session, where the verdict was announced. which is very typical, notjust in the uae, but all over the world. the
uae has given the uk government all the evidence it had and all it wa nted the evidence it had and all it wanted from the uk government is to deny that this fellow is not spying for it. and until that denial comes, the charges against matthew stands. there are concerns around whether he has been treated fairly. he did not have access to lawyers, he has only had limited access to lawyers. he was kept in solitary confinement. he was kept in solitary confinement. he was denied access to consular officials, he signed a statement in arabic and he doesn‘t speak arabic. well, all legal transactions in the uae has to be written in arabic. that is in all cases. for him to signa that is in all cases. for him to sign a document in arabic was standard. i‘m sure there was a
translater that helped him and from everything i know he was treated very well. he was not confined, as many have claimed and his wife, the only source for this confinement comes from his wife and it is not true. he was given a comfortable place, not even injail. he had access to books. he had access to ipad, he had access to medication. soi ipad, he had access to medication. so i don‘t think he has been ill—treated. he was given the pest treatment that he deserved. the foreign secretary has said there will be consequences, the government here is surprised, they say, shocked, that an ally of this country would treat somebody in this way. they say he is innocent. well, you know, as bizarre as this may sound, america spies on germany and
it spies on america. this is not the first case and not the last case. as regard the detail, it is... done and it is not the only time. but once again, now that he has been caught red handed, the thing that it takes now is for the government of the uk to deny officially and then they will take it to another level or this guy has been a victim of his own government‘s doing. this guy has been a victim of his own government's doing. thank you very much. we will continue to keep you updated on the world meteorological organisation is warning that the window of opportunity to tackle climate change is almost closing. its latest survey has found that greenhouse gases reached record high levels in 2017. united nations experts say there‘s no sign of a reversal in the upward trend of carbon emissions — which increase the risk of long—term climate change.
we can now speak to dr oksana tarasova, head of the atmospheric environment research division at the world meteorological organisation. thank you very much forjoining us. how concerned thank you very much forjoining us. how concerned are thank you very much forjoining us. how concerned are you buy this? we are extremely concerned with the recent increases of the greenhouse gas concentration. there are the three main gases, carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide. this year, we reported another increase in the concentration of those gases. we do not see any reversal of the trend, and moreover we do not see that the growth rate all the degree with which the increase every year is decreasing. so for carbon dioxide, it was the same rate of increase is within the last ten yea rs, increase is within the last ten years, the same for methane and four nitrous oxide. and that is not in line with the recent commitments made by other countries. the world
meteorological organisation says the window of opportunity to tackle climate change is almost closing. how would you see the window? the window for opportunities that when we can meet the targets, which were accepted we can meet the targets, which were a cce pted by we can meet the targets, which were accepted by the countries in the paris agreement, for example 2 degrees or 1.5 degrees increase by the end of the century. if we look at the recent report produced by an inter—governmental panel on experts of climate change, about the 1.5 degrees, and what should be done, there are the requirements for very drastic actions related to the emissions. for example, the report says that by 2030 the emissions of carbon dioxide should be reduced by 45% in comparison with the level of 2010. and what we see in the atmosphere is no sign of even to decrease growth rate, the concentrations are climbing every year. and the problem with
greenhouse gases, especially with the carbon dioxide, is that it stays in the atmosphere the hundreds of yea rs, in the atmosphere the hundreds of years, so in the atmosphere the hundreds of years, so every molecule we emit will stay here with us and will heat the atmosphere for many years to come. even if we stop emissions right now, the amount of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases we have in the atmosphere is enough to increase the temperature by another half degree. dr tarasova, thank you very much. the board of the carmaker nissan are holding an emergency meeting to decide the fate of the firm‘s chairman, carlos ghosn. it comes days after the tycoon — who also works for mistubishi and renault — was arrested for financial misconduct. he is accused of misusing company funds and understating his income. our correspondent rupert wingfield—hayes is in tokyo for us now. bring us up—to—date with the allegations against him. they are
pretty serious, mr ghosn is accused of understating his salary, but the amount he has underreported according to the allegations from the company is rather massive, around £35 million over a five—year period. since monday, since these allegations and his arrest on monday, we have learnt other details have come leaking out, such as that the company bought houses to the june £15 million, recent taxation is that he paid his salary 150,000 us dollars a year, even though she did not work for the company and didn‘t have any consultancy role. so they are serious allegations that carry a serious prison term if he is found guilty but no charges have been robero. mr ghosn remains in custody
in tokyo. meantime, the board of directors of nissan has been meeting for around the last four hours to decide his fate. it is expected they will vote to sack him from his position as the company chairman but it is taking a little bit longer than anyone was expecting. thank you very much, rupert. back to the news that opportunities to stop the manchester bombing were missed as a result of a series of failings, by security services according to a major report that‘s just been published. the intelligence and security committee found the security services moved ‘too slowly‘ to establish the danger posed by the bomber, salman abedi. he is believed to have been taught bomb—making skills while in libya, before returning to manchester in may last year to construct his device. 22 people were killed in the attack, when abedi walked into manchester arena and blew himself up. we can speak to our security correspondent frank gardner who‘s in westminster. so, frank, these failings that have been identified, how serious is it?
i think they are very serious and they are acknowledged by m15, the security service, who don‘t deny it. the report, which i havejust been sitting in a closed session with other journalists, this sitting in a closed session with otherjournalists, this is the 125 page report, it is very thorough, that i think the most damning thing in it is as you say the opportunities that were missed to possibly come and they don‘t say definitely, possibly prevent that attack or the events of may 22 last year. specifically, it zeros in on the fact that salman abedi, the bomb, visited a known extremist a recruiter for jihadis bomb, visited a known extremist a recruiterforjihadis to bomb, visited a known extremist a recruiter forjihadis to go to syria. he visited him in prison and no action was taken on this, no follow—up was done by m15 or counterterrorism policing. there is also a missed opportunity here, in terms of travel. the report is very
specific and it says m15 decided to not place travel restrictions on salman abedi, which allowed him to return undetected to the uk in the days just before the attack. m15 have since admitted given the information they had on him, they should have done so and have now revisited their policies. there are a number of areas in which m15, their deficiencies are shown up, at their deficiencies are shown up, at the same time they are praised all the same time they are praised all the attacks they have been able to prevent, but one of the areas of concern i think is this business of what is called closed or periphery so is. an soi what is called closed or periphery so is. an s0! is a subject of interest, and we have been told there are roughly 3000 subjects of interest, people on watchlist, and a further 20,000 plus who have been and could still be of concern. the worry here is are they keeping a
close enough type, a close enough watch on those people who said he or she is no longer of concern right now, but they could be. and the report says that process needs to keep on improving. and do they have any keep on improving. and do they have a ny clear keep on improving. and do they have any clear suggestions, because this is not the first time this issue has been raised in this country and other countries. it is not, and the report that was introduced, it was said there were a number of loopholes exposed by other attacks, such as the 7—7 london bombings and the murder of fusiliers lee rigby in woolwich which have not been followed up. these loopholes are still being exploited by terrorists. pa rt still being exploited by terrorists. part of the problem is there was such a prolific explosion of data, which means the security services are ways going to be playing catch—up. but more needs to be done
on that. they want more pressure done on csps, communication service providers, to stop being a kind of river through which terrorism information flows. there are various other recommendations in here, which they are saying that both the police and m15 have accepted these. they are slightly concerned that for three years now, they haven‘t actually met the prime minister. they are supposed to meet the prime minister every single year and that hasn‘t happened. minister every single year and that hasn't happened. thank you very much, frank. let‘s get more now on the case of matthew hedges, the british student jailed for life in the united arab emirates on charges of spying. he‘s spent six months in jail, almost all of which he‘s spent in solitary confinement. mr hedges, who‘s 31, says he is innocent, and was in the uae to research his phd. joining me now is david haigh.
he‘s a human rights lawyer who was detained in the uae for 22 months. during that time, he says he was tortured and abused and he now campaigns forjustice in the uae. thank you forjoining us, welcome. so having had an experience yourself, presumably, you empathise particularly with what is going on here. what we thought when you heard a life sentence? ironically i was on the way to london to watch a documentary the bbc are making on other abuses of human rights in uae, in this case princess latifah, the daughter of the ruler and various others, so i was reading this from the bbc and the first thing that came into my head was not again. now obviously i was raised about two yea rs obviously i was raised about two years ago now, and we help now hundreds of people, hundreds, that this story happens, obviously not as severe as we have seen this story happens, obviously not as severe as we have seen in the case of matthew but it has happened again and again and again. all the facts
you see, someone and again and again. all the facts you see, someone jailed on a ridiculous charge, not given access toa ridiculous charge, not given access to a lawyer or an embassy, and you see it again and again, made to sign. confessions. for me, it is no longer shocking, because it is so often that it happens. the foreign secretary sounded shocked yesterday in the statement that he put out. he did and it is a good sign because previous foreign secretary is, certainly when i was there, there have always been, as you probably saw with saudi, there has aways been that the policy seemed to be put investment first, and put financial deals first and ignore brits that have been abused but i think you have been abused but i think you have seen in the media again and again and again, every other week or even again and again, every other week or eve n every again and again, every other week or even every week, there is some ridiculous case in dubai, in the uae where a brit or another citizen has been charged and arrested for the most ridiculous things. what pressure can be brought to bear now the foreign secretary has been talking about consequences as a result of this? the foreign secretary and the prime minister
saying they do not expect an ally of this country to have behaved in this way. i think that's the thing, all the cases we have seen before, including my case, we are always told by the foreign office, don‘t go told by the foreign office, don‘t go to the media, don‘t do that, we will talk behind closed doors, which has been their policy before, and it is not working. it is a two—way street. british policy was to do that. it is encouraging to see the foreign secretary taking a stuff —— a tough sta nce secretary taking a stuff —— a tough stance and offending brits, and it is something i welcome. you were given a royal pardon in the end. there is an appeal process open to matthew hedges, he has 30 days to appeal, do you hold out hope of something like a royal pardon? this is the thing, and i don‘t use this word lightly, very corrupt about the system there. you go to a court in the first instance, and i saw the attorney general has said it is not final sentence. any court should at first be the right sentence, you should only rely on an appeal in extreme circumstances, not as a
matter of course. in dubai, the statistic, it is something like 90 to 95% of those accused getjailed and get found guilty. that is not something to be proud of. when people appeal, which a lot of people do from places like bounced cheques and otherwise, it is a significant percentage that is significant or the sentences reduced. that shows there is a flaw. repeatedlyjust because there is media interest, the sheik macro can come in and pardon people again shows that even he does not have confidence in his courts and his police, because there should not be a need for regular pardons. we have seen with brits alone, with jamie haran, billy barkley, with the doctor recently, it is every couple of weeks something with nicholas happens, the sheik comes in and hast to pardon them. i mentioned the way you were treated in jail, abused, tortured, what are your concerns
about matthew hedges? my worry is that he will be kept in a national security jail most that he will be kept in a national securityjail most likely, because it isa securityjail most likely, because it is a charge of spying. you got some extremely nasty people in there. it‘s extremely dangerous. as you can imagine, with that type of a jail, it is much worse than any of the others, so in terms of access to the others, so in terms of access to the outside world, access to lawyers, access to proper food and medical care, you know, in addition to what i do in england i work for an ngo in geneva, and a lot of our members have basically been injail, in the national securityjail, and it is horrific. will he be able to have any contact with lawyers or anyone outside? he should be able to but it is very arbitrary on whether they allow you to or not, it is how they allow you to or not, it is how the gods feel at the time, so i would imagine that the attention this has got that he might get some better treatment, but it is so arbitrary because even with their own rules and policies, they don‘t
follow them. thank you forjoining us, talking about matthew hedges, we will keep you updated on that situation. over 800 staff will work through the thanksgiving holiday flo in california to help identify the remains of those killed in the wildfires that struck the region earlier this month. more than 560 remain unaccounted for, with 86 fatalities across the state. heavy rains have helped firefighters trying to contain the fires, but they‘ve also raised fears of flooding and landslides. the bbc‘s danjohnson has more from los angeles. two more bodies have been found today in what remains of paradise and the villages around it. every day, the search teams have made more grim discoveries but conditions, the weather is getting worse, making the job harder for them. there has been some rain this afternoon and there is more forecast over the next few days, into the weekend. the fear is that if the rain is really heavy and causes flooding there, then it may get almost impossible to dig through what is left, and actually find any human remains.
the sheriff has emphasised how difficult thatjob was anyway, because of the intensity of this fire, because of how little is left, but certainly the worsening weather conditions are not going to make life any easier. but on the other hand, the rain has helped the firefighters tackling the wildfires and they are now all but contained. that is one positive, but as the death toll increases, and the number missing is still above 500, there is definitely work for the emergency services and search teams to do that will take a long time yet. the number of people unaccounted for has been reducing over the last few days. but still there are many hundreds unaccounted for, so work to do to work out exactly where those people are. and a real fear that things could get worse over the weekend, if there is flooding and even mudslides in that area. and then there are the longer term questions about people returning to see what is left of their home, and contemplating whether they can rebuild. all sorts of questions
about the contaminants that are left after a fire of this intensity, and the sorts of infrastructure that needs to be rebuilt to support the community there again in future. the power, the communication, the community facilities, like churches, schools and shops, all of that has got to be considered. at the minute, they are trying to find people temporary housing, and to bring in education services for the children who have been displaced. so it gives you an idea of the number of levels on which people have been affected by this disaster. they are also talking about counselling for the people who were caught up in the fires nearly two weeks ago now. so a long way to go for the people of paradise and for that town. a major report from nhs digital into the mental health of children and young people has found that one in eight of 5—19 year olds had a mental health problem last year. it comes as the children‘s commissioner for england warns that there is a ‘vast gap‘ in the support provided by the nhs for children with mental health problems. the report was the first study
to analyse the mental health of two to four years old, finding that 5.5% of that group suffered a mental health issue last year. there was a slight increase in the overal prevalence of mental disorder in young people aged between 5—15 from a similar study 11 years ago. with emotional disorders being the most prevalent type of disorder, as opposed to behavioural and hyperactivity. with me now is sarah kendrick, head of sevice at the children‘s mental health charity, place—2—be. thank you forjoining us. pleasure. really quite shocking statistics, particularly when you look at the picture of young kids, i mean, children as young as two being identified with mental health issues. yes, this nhs digital study issues. yes, this nhs digital study is really important, because for the first time we are looking at two to four—year—olds, so that is the first time they have been studied in terms
of mental health. for ourselves as a charity, these statistics are not really shocking. they kind of bear out what we‘ve learned over the 25 yea rs out what we‘ve learned over the 25 years that we‘ve been working in schools, and certainly more recently we‘ve seen an schools, and certainly more recently we‘ve seen an increase schools, and certainly more recently we‘ve seen an increase in the kind of emotional disorders that are mentioned in the study. visit a greater awareness, or is it a growing problem?” greater awareness, or is it a growing problem? i think probably a bit of both. i think that we are very much better at recognising emotional disorders, because we used to just call those bad emotional disorders, because we used tojust call those bad behaviour, i think, and now we are much better at realising what is behind the behaviour, that it might be a disorder. so in terms of treating it and handling it, i guess a classroom then becomes the front line, in many aspects, for dealing with this, when you are talking about bad behaviour. do we have to completely rethink the way that bad behaviour is treated in
young couple, critical, because the blah expelled for bad behaviour? millar it is often a communication of distress. we work in 300 schools nationwide and we have teams of people in schools, so it is a professional service providing mental health support for the whole school community. very often teachers are asked to sort of pick—up or work out what is happening with these children, and what schools really need and what we know works is to have a team of people, a mental health support in every school. and how many schools actually have that? we are in 300 at the place to be, there are various schools who commissioned perhaps a school—based councillor as well, but we know that is not really touching the problem. with the stretched resources that child and adolescent mental health services have, we know
that it israeli important that something is provided early in the life of the problem, in the life of the child and in schools. and educating the grown—ups around the kids as well, because obviously anyone who has a child or is in a school where a child is behaving in a way that is clearly an indication ofa a way that is clearly an indication of a problem doesn‘t the cesarini how to react. that's right, and it's really important that teachers start to recognise the first signs. we would never advocate teachers having to ta ke would never advocate teachers having to take action but recognising the first sign, and rhyl importantly having summer to refer those young children into at a very early stage. you can see in this report that problem seemed to increase as children‘s get older. problem seemed to increase as children's get older. thank you very much. in a moment, we‘ll have all the business news, but first the headlines on bbc news... m15 admits for the first time that it failed to track the manchester arena bomber, salman abedi. the attacker blew himself up at an ariana grande concert in 2017, killing 22 people.

professor david bailey, professor of industry, aston university. what are the implications for nissan if mrghosn is what are the implications for nissan if mr ghosn is charged and found guilty? i think you will be sacked today as chair and i think mitsubishi will follow suit. renault is looking to see what the charges are, but ultimately i think he's gone. what that means is he was the glue which effectively held this sprawling empire, this alliance, together, and is in effect one of the biggest car— makers together, and is in effect one of the biggest car—makers in the world. there will have to replace him as chair at three different companies and the alliance that holds it all together, they will have to find ways to keep that going because if it falls apart they will not have the economies of scale that it currently has, and they will not be able to compete with the big
players, so huge stakes for the alliance was the breaking news in, we have just heard alliance was the breaking news in, we havejust heard he has been stripped of his chairmanship. where does this leave the alliance, where does this leave the alliance, where does this leave nissan, mitsubishi and the other companies, renault as well? where does this leave this big group, over 10 million well? where does this leave this big group, over10 million cars well? where does this leave this big group, over 10 million cars every single year they produce? that's right, there are huge for lines of a group, renault had a 34% stake in nissan, nissana group, renault had a 34% stake in nissan, nissan a 15% stake in renault, and yet nissan was a bigger company generating the profits. huge tensions were emerging, mr ghosn was trying to merge them, and this has all the hallmarks of basically a coup, whereby nissan have taken mr ghosn out. there will be an attempt by nissan to assert some control, adding the finance ministers from france and japan will be meeting at the weekend, but there are huge sta kes the weekend, but there are huge stakes about whether they can hold this together. does any of this alter the future of nissan plants in
the uk, because ghosn was a big backer of the sunderland plant. very much so, as chair of the alliance and nissan, he very much back that investment in sunderland, including in the new model due to be there from 2020 made. huge uncertainty because of brexit. a new chair coming and may take a different aspect of on that investment. just to reiterate, that breaking news for you, ghosn is gone. the board of nissan has met to decide the fate of the chairman, and he has now been stripped of his chairmanship, awaiting charges, but currently in tokyo. a quick look at the markets, the pound has beenjumping on that news of the draft agreement between brexit between the uk and the eu that it ends for an ambitious, broad, deep and flexible partnership. this draft text has been leaked, it is due to be approved at the summit on sunday. centrica shares down 6.5% at the moment, they are reporting a loss of

a look at the weather with simon king. we had a pretty cold start to the day, temperatures down to minus 6.7 celsius in oxfordshire and many western parts of england, across east wales, a widespread frost. but towards eastern part, we have had more clout, and we still notice that through northern ireland, wales and the south—west, some sunshine at the moment, and that will continue into the afternoon, sunny spells the central and southern areas. many eastern parts, outbreaks of rain, particularly eastern scotland and the far north east of england. maximum temperatures about five to nine celsius. not like last night, it will be frost—free, because that cloud will keep temperatures above freezing. rain will start to move into the south—west of england,
those are your overnight temperatures, two to five celsius. as we go through friday, some showers across eastern scotland, elsewhere it should be dry, a few brea ks elsewhere it should be dry, a few breaks developing in northern parts but otherwise cloudy and temperatures eight to 10 celsius. goodbye. you‘re watching bbc newsroom live — these are today‘s main stories: m15 admits for the first time that it failed to track the manchester arena bomber, salman abedi. the attacker blew himself up at an ariana grande concert in 2017, killing 22 people. mi5 m15 decided not to place travel monitoring or restrictions on salman abedi. this allowed him to return undetected to the united kingdom in the days immediately before he carried out his attack. eu and british negotiators agree on a 26—page declaration on britain‘s future relationship with europe. the wife of matthew hedges — jailed for spying in

opportunities to stop the manchester bombing were missed as a result of a series of failings by security services according to a major report that‘s just been published. the intelligence and security committee found the security services moved ‘too slowly‘ to establish the danger posed by the bomber, salman abedi. 22 people were killed in the attack, when abedi walked into manchester arena and blew himself up. the report said that salman abedi is believed to have learnt bomb—making in syria. that m15 acted too slowly to establish how dangerous salman abedi really was, concluding that opportunities were missed to possibly prevent the attack. m15 decided not to place travel monitoring or travel restrictions on salman abedi. this allowed him to return undetected to the united kingdom in the days immediately before he carried out his attack.
m15 have admitted that, given the information they had on abedi, they should have done so and they have now revised their policies in this respect, the case also highlights deficiencies in m15‘s system for monitoring those individuals of interest who are not currently under active investigation. and in the case of another of the perpetrators, the system for monitoring those seen in the peripheries of more than one investigation. abedi‘s case had in fact been flagged up for further review, but m15‘s systems moved too slowly and that review had not happened prior to to his launching his attack. the question of how closed or peripheral subjects of interest are managed is, in our view, critical. and it‘s one that has been the subject of previous recommendations by this committee in a number of reports. this has now been recognised by m15 and improvements are planned and these must now be prioritised. we also note in relation
to salman abedi that, despite being known to m15 from 2014, he was not at any point considered for a referral to the prevent programme. the failure to use the prevent programme is similarly not a new issue and we would have expected lessons already to have been learned. a little earlier i spoke to our security correspondent frank gardner — who described the severity of the criticism levelled at m15. i think they‘re serious and they‘re acknowledged by m15. the report, which i have been sitting in a closed session with other journalists, this is the 125—page report, it is very thorough, but i think the most damning thing in it is the opportunities that were missed to possibly — and they don‘t say definitely — possibly prevent
that attack. and specifically it zeros in on the fact that salman abedi, the bomber, visited a known extremist, a recruiterforjihadists to go to syria, he visited him in prison and no action was taken on this. there is also a missed opportunity in term of travel. the report is very specific in it says that mi5, that report is very specific in it says that m15, that is the security service, decided not to place travel monitoring or travel restrictions on salman abedi, which allowed him to return undetected to the uk in the days just before the attack. m15 have since admitted, given the information that they had on salman abedi, they should have done so. and they have now revisited their policy. there are a number of areas
where the deficiencies are shown up. but they have been praised for the attacks they have been able to prevent. one area of concern is the business of what is closed sois, or subjects of interest, we have been told that there are roughly 3,000 subjects of interest, in other words people on the radar of m15 and a further 20,000—plus who have been and could still be of concern. the worry here is are they keeping a close enough watch on those people who they have said ok, well, he or she is not cough v of concern now, but they could be. the report said that process needs to keep on improving. the home sect home secretary said my thoughts remain with the friends and
families of those attacked. following the attack, the police and mi5 following the attack, the police and m15 undertook a series of reviews to make sure we are tackling the evolving threat of terrorism and we have introduced new legislation and have introduced new legislation and have increased information—sharing with local authorities. we are also ensuring that technology companies play their part by stopping terrorists from exploiting their platforms. the board of the car maiken nissan have voted to row move the firm‘s chairman, carlos ghosn. it comes days after the tycoon — who also works for mistubishi and renault — was arrested for financial misconduct. he is accused of misusing company funds and understating his income. our tokyo correspondent rupert wingfield—hayes said the allegations against mr ghosn are serious the amount he has underreported, according to the allegations is massive. it is around £35 million
over a five—year period. since monday, since this v these allegations and his arrest on monday, we have learned other details, such as that the company bought homes for carlos ghosn in four different countries to the tune of £15 million. a recent accusation ina of £15 million. a recent accusation in a newspaper that he paid his sister a salary of around $100,000 a year, even though she didn‘t work for the company and didn‘t have any consultancy role. so there are serious allegations that carry a serious allegations that carry a serious prison term if he is charged and found guilty. but no charges have been laid yet. carlos ghosn remains in custody in a detention centre in tokyo. a draft agreement on the future relationship between britain and the eu has been agreed between uk negotiators and the european commission. the draft brexit deal is not legally binding, but calls for an ambitious, wide—ranging economic partnership. leaders of the twenty—seven eu states plan to meet on sunday, where they will vote
on whether to endorse the deal. let‘s have a look at what exactly is in the deal. the deal says there is a "determination" to replace the ireland backstop with "alternative arrangements". it emphasises the uk will develop an independent trade policy. but it says the uk will consider aligning with some eu rules and regulations. the president of the european council, donald tusk, announced the declaration, saying it would now be up to european leaders to agree it. he said on twitter: adam fleming is in brussels. flesh out what is in this. well, broadly there is something for everyone. but the danger is no one ends up being fully satisfied. if you‘re france, they were worried
that the uk would get privileged access to the single market without enough strings attached, this says there will be strings attached. if you were netherlands who were worried about whether your fishing fleet would get access to british waters, there it says there will have to be a deal that deals with this in the future trade negotiations. if you‘re the prime minister, who wanted a close relationship op security, it says, that the two sides will pledge to carry on co—operating on a load of things as they do now, such as databases of criminal records. if you‘re a big company with a big supply change that straddles the eu, there is a pledge that trade will be as easy as possible. if you‘re a brexiteer worried that the northern irish backstop binds the uk to the eu, there is a pledge to see whether technology could address the problem instead. i mentioned an anecdote,
talking to an official from the european commission, who said the point of intellectual exercise of brexit was to rebuild the eu/uk relationship with everything have you now taking out free movement and the european exhort. two other things, it is aspiration and sets out how many things will have to be negotiated in the next stage of the negotiations which can‘t begin until after brexit day proper and my experience with the withdrawal agreement last week, this 585 page treaty, very quickly, people came to a view about it and the debate moved on and the document stopped being releva nt. on and the document stopped being relevant. i wonder if that will happen with this document as well and it will become a prop in the national political argument about brexit. in terms of time table,
there is a summit on sunday, is there is a summit on sunday, is there any doubt that this will go smoothly at that end? that will become clearer in the next 24 hours. this was signed off at negotiator‘s level by the uk and the eu. it has been handed over to the 27 states. although they have had input and haven‘t we been reporting their input, they will consider it in more detail. there will be a meeting of the so—called sherpas, the prime ministerial advisors. we will know tomorrow if the document will fly. then theresa may is back in brussels on saturday night to seejean—claude juncker and others and we will get an idea about how things are going and the leaders will sit down around the table on sunday to discuss it. angela merkel said her precondition
for coming to the sum miment was that this document —— summit was this document existed. well, here it is, she has better book her plane ticket! thank you. donald trump has hit back at the us chiefjustice, who took the extraordinary step of rebuking the president for calling a federaljudge "an obama judge" for ruling against the president‘s asylum policy. john roberts defended the independence of the judiciary, saying there were no obama judges or trumpjudges. the president said somejudges had different views to those charged with the safety of the country. a dinghy carrying seven suspected iranian migrants — six men and a woman — was spotted about two and a half miles off the coast of dover in the early hours of this morning. then a second dinghy was spotted a little later with a further seven people on board. police say home office immigration enforcement officers are dealing with the matter. so far this month 79 suspected iranian migrants have crossed the english channel. seven buses have been destroyed
and four others badly damaged — in a major fire at a depot in south—east london. at one point, 60 firefighters were tackling the blaze, which broke out in orpington in the early hours. the cause isn‘t yet clear. more on today‘s main stories coming up on newsroom live here on the bbc news channel, but now we say goodbye to viewers on bbc two. the headlines on bbc news: m15 admits for the first time that it failed to track the manchester arena bomber, salman abedi. the attacker blew himself up at an ariana grande concert in 2017, killing 22 people. eu and british negotiators agree on a 26—page declaration on britain‘s future relationship with europe. the wife of matthew hedges — jailed for spying in the united arab emirates — accuses the government of putting british interests above her husband‘s fate. now steve has the sport. hello
there. good afternoon. let‘s start with a remarkable sporting comeback, in formula one for robert kubica. he‘s making a full return to the sport with williams in 2019, eight years after a rally accident that nearly killed him and left the pole with a partially severed arm. our f1 reporter isjennie gow: he tested for renault. they came back and said he just doesn‘t have the strength. he tested for williams and most importantly at the hungarian race track, which is a very fast track and really tested him to see how much strength he had. you see him, he does have a severely ly withered arm, but they have made adaptations to the car and together
with his determination has made this happen. he has a lot of backing and he needed to get a certain level of backing to beat basically the russians to that seat. it looks like poland‘s won this one. manu tuilagi‘s in line to make his first appearance for england in more than two years. he‘s been named on the bench for england‘s final autumn international against australia at twickenham on saturday. he‘ll bejoined on the bench by co—captain dylan hartley — jamie george will start at hooker instead. liam williams will start at full—back for wales against south africa on saturday. he‘s the only survivor from the side that thrashed tonga, moving from the wing to replace leigh halfpenny, who‘s injured. meanwhile the man in charge of world rugby says referees to hand out more cards to stop dangerous tackles. there‘s been plenty of controversial hits during the autumn series, none more so that this one from england‘s owen farrell against south africa which went unpunished. after two decades of
terrorising defenders, didier drogba is retiring from football. (00v) he‘s played into his 40s, the last couple he‘s played into his 40s, the last couple of years north america. in his prime there were few more imposing centre—forwards. in his nine years at chelsea he helped them to win the champions league, and four premier league titles. the charities watchdog says it‘s engaging with the professional footballers association "to establish the facts", after loads of players called for it‘s chairman to step down. they‘re unhappy with gordon taylor‘s salary and the way the union spends its money. it‘s a big day for england‘s cricketers at the women‘s world t20 in antigua. they play india in the semi finals later tonight. if they win, they‘ll have the chance to become double world champions having won the one day title last year. that‘s all the sport for now. i‘ll have more for you in the next hour. the wife of a british student who has been jailed for life for spying in the united arab emirates has strongly criticised the government‘s handling of the case.
daniela tejada said the foreign office failed to act quickly and firmly enough when her husband, matthew hedges, was detained in may. mr hedges, who‘s 31, says he is innocent, and was in the uae to research his phd. daniela spoke to the bbc‘s today programme as soon as she landed at heathrow this morning and said officials had disregarded her views, and appeared to place britain‘s interests in the gulf above those of her husband. i believe that they should have taken a firmer stance from the beginning. if not publicly, through their private representations. this is something that i feel they failed to do throughout really. they only started taking a firmer approach and started taking everything that i had been insisting on for months seriously once matt was released on bail and was able to speak to them directly. so, when you say things you had insisted on, you had been talking to them had you and persuading them to do more? i had, yes.
on repeated occasions, probably on a weekly basis. i asked for the foreign secretary for representation, i asked for firmer stances from the foreign minister and most definitely from the foreign office in general here in london to be more proactive, instead ofjust insisting... in details that were really not at the core of the issue. while his welfare was important, the core issue was that he was being detained and he was being held in unacceptable conditions for something that he didn‘t do. when you said that to the foreign office, what did they say to you? theyjust disregarded my requests. they said that it wasn‘t part of theirjob. that it wasn‘t part of their duty. that in one occasion, one of the case workers
actually said that the foreign office did not have a duty of care and so they weren‘t obliged to make such representations. given that we are, or we have been very close allies with the uae, did you get the impression that they regarded it as a nuisance? i was under the impression that they were putting their interests with the uae above a british citizen‘s rightful freedom and his welfare and his right to, notjust a fair trial, just to freedom. they didn‘t, they were stepping on eggshells instead of taking a firm stance. no allies should be treating a fellow country‘s citizen like that and there is absolutely no reason why they should think a close ally would be sending an undercover agent to spy on them — it‘s absurd. also speaking on the
programme, the health secretary matt hancock said the case had the potential to damage diplomatic relations betweent the uk and the uae. we have seen no evidence to back up these charges and there are clearly going to have to be serious diplomatic repercussions. the question of why a friend of the uk should act like this is a perfectly reasonable one. i understand that daniela is going to meet the foreign secretary later today. the foreign secretary has already raised this case personally with the crown prince on the 12th of november, so before the hearing. the foreign office has been acting on his behalf at the highest possible levels. let‘s get more now from our
middle east reporter paul blake who‘s in dubai. paul, there are 30 days in which an appeal can be launched, when will we know if it‘s happening? appeal can be launched, when will we know if it's happening? that's right a lot of the details are opaque, but we are seeing in local media reports that there is an appeal available to matthew hedges within the first 30 days of this sentencing. that seems to be the line that the local media have been towing, this is the national, a pro—government newspaper, they talk about the attorney general here, it says hedges verdict is not final and point to that appeal process that is a p pa re ntly point to that appeal process that is apparently available to him. what reaction has there been there to the reaction has there been there to the reaction here? it is hard to say, there was a swift response from jeremy hunt yesterday, he talked
about how this had gone against the assurances he was given. he was here last week meeting with the senior leadership. the case was high on the agenda. he said yesterday quickly after the verdict that he was deeply disappointed and shocked by this and he said it went against assurances he said it went against assurances he was given here. throughout yesterday he talked of how it would have strong diplomatic repercussions for the relationship between the uk and the uae. and there are hundreds of ex—pats here and lots of british holiday makers who come here. that relationship is something that both countries will have a strong eye on here in the next few weeks. thank you. a major report from nhs digital into the mental health of children and young people has found that one in eight of five to 19 year olds had a mental
health problem last year. it comes as the children‘s commissioner for england warns that there is a ‘vast gap‘ in the support provided by the nhs for children with mental health problems. the report was the first study to analyse the mental health of 2 to 4 years old — finding that 5.5% of that group suffered a mental health issue last year. there was a slight increase in the overal prevalence of mental disorder in young people aged between 5—15 from a similar study 11 years ago. with emotional disorders being the most prevalent type of disorer — as opposed to behavioural and hyperactivity. with me now is dr tamsin ford — professor of child and adolescent psychiatry at the university of exeter — she was also clinical advisor to the survey. thank you forjoining us. what are your thoughts on these figures? well, i think any increase in the level of mental health conditions amongst our children and young people is concerning. but i think we
are not seeing what some people were worried that we might see. so there massive increases in the number of children being referred to children‘s mental health services, this what is the children‘s commissioner has been talking about, lots more children presenting to a&e with self—harm, i think we are seeing an increase, bit is modest. it is worrying, but it is not a catastrophe from this survey. why we re catastrophe from this survey. why were two—year—old looked at? it seems incredible. well, i guess, i'm a psychiatrist, so maybe i find that less surprising and shocking and i have a similar reaction from people when i say i‘m a child psychiatrist and people say children don‘t need psychiatrists for children. we
hadn‘t looked at the preschool age. only a smattering of people around the world have done. in order to make sure that we have services and provision for them, we kind of need to know how many out there are struggling. in a way picking up on what you‘re saying in your answer, maybe we shouldn‘t be surprised at the age, because actually at what point do mental health issues start to kick in, itjust the moment when people recognise them, is there an assumption in a kid has issues later on that they have been there for a long time but not identified. research have shown when they study people throughout their lifetime that actually three quarters of aduu that actually three quarters of adult mental health problems had their root in childhood. that it why it make sense to extend the age span. that throws up questions about
how and when these things are tackled. i think there is a belief with some evidence to back it up that earlier intervention is better. we do have effective interventions so one we do have effective interventions so one of the commonest problems picked up in the two to four age group for example was severely challenging behaviour. that does tend to persist and cause problems later on. and we have nice recommended effective treatments that parents can access to help them and help their children. thank you very much. some breaking news, we are hearing that a woman has been attacked in a grounds of a hospital in ayr. the attack happened at ailsa hospital this morning. police officers are searching the area for the attacker. the local health board
has put out a tweet warning the hospital is on lock down. the ailsa hospital is on lock down. the ailsa hospital is on lock down. the ailsa hospital is a small unit outside ayr, which specialises in mental health. a woman attacked in the grounds of that hospital. now time for the weather. it is cold, the temperatures are struggling at the moment. we had a cold start to the day. there was a bit of frost around. that thermometer isn‘t rising high at all. it will stay chilly through the day. but there are indications that perhaps slightly less cold air will reach us over the course of the weekend. at the moment, the air still coming out of europe, but there is a hint, you can see the clouds coming in that will be warmer. these are temperatures, five or six degrees, that feels raw. we have some rain around too. tonight, because of this
cloud, the temperatures are not going to drop as low. clouds tend to act like a blanket and stop the temperatures dipping too low. two to four degrees tonight. tomorrow, maybe getting up into double figures in the south. so london and cardiff around ten degrees. hello this is bbc newsroom live. with joanna gosling. withjoanna gosling. the headlines. m15 admits for the first time that it failed to track the manchester arena bomber, salman abedi. the attacker blew himself up at an ariana grande concert in 2017, killing 22 people. eu and british negotiators agree on a 26—page declaration on britain‘s future relationship with europe . the wife of matthew hedges, jailed for spying in the united arab emirates, accuses the government of putting british interests above her husband‘s fate. the world meteorological organisation says greenhouse gases have reached record levels, and there are concerns
that time is running out to deal with the problem. the board of the car—maker nissan meets to decide whether to sack its chairman, carlos ghosn, who is accused of financial misconduct. the most "financially vulnerable people" could soon see a cap on the charges they pay if they buy domestic goods on a rent—to—own basis. the financial conduct authority has proposed a cap to make sure that credit charges could not be more than the cost of the product. the main providers of rent—to—own goods are brighthouse and perfecthome, which earlier this year had to pay compensation to 37,000 customers for failing to carry out proper affordability checks. the fca says the cap could save about 400,000 consumers up to £22.7 million a year. with me now isjoe lane from the citizens advice bureau. give us some examples of
particularly bad examples of high levels of credit being paid. citizens advice helps people with unaffordable rent own debts, where their income is secure, they are on low incomes and often what looked like very small weekly outlays, so they are buying goods where they pay £34 a week but we see relieve severe problem so someone has taken for five or six of those loans to buy essential items, so they have a fridge, a cooker, a bed, and in some insta nces we fridge, a cooker, a bed, and in some instances we see clients with ten, 12 items and debts that grew up into £9,000 is one really severe case we saw. by the time they get to ask they are in really financial difficulty, and this captured help detect people from getting into that spiral of debt. and how much more are they paying when the credit is addedin are they paying when the credit is added in for the item, compared to how much it would have actually cost have they been able to buy it outright the first place? the cap
todayis outright the first place? the cap today is really positive the two reasons, one because it caps that total amount of credit, which is 100% cost cap, so if the original item is £200, the consumer can‘t end up item is £200, the consumer can‘t end up paying more than 400, but the sca have also said the initial price of that item can‘t be what the average —— more than what the average price is on the high street. so it should reflect what you would typically pay at another catalogue store, and that will protect consumers from that double increase in price, which sees people pay typically two or three times as much of you would pay on the high street. the main providers of rent to own goods, brighthouse and perfect home had to pay compensation as i mentioned to 37,000 customers forfailing compensation as i mentioned to 37,000 customers for failing to carry out proper affordability text, are they now being verbally done?|j wouldn‘t want to say always. ——
affordability checks. we said previously to the fca is the high cost lenders the affordability checks they do should be stated more clearly. currently there is a situation where the rules say that affordability checks have to be conducted, and there are suggestions on what that might entail. we think eve ryo ne on what that might entail. we think everyone would be better off, both consumers and companies, if you said do these three things then you have conducted a proper affordability check. has the financial conduct authority been slow to get to grips with this? it is certainly one of the things that has been on the agenda for a long time. citizens advice has been highlighting this for a few years now and in that time we have been helping thousands of people with problem debts. it is a really positive step, that is the important thing, and now it is in place it‘s important it is simpler minted and enforced. thank you very much. let‘s go live to downing street where the prime minister
is making a statement. it is on the brexit agreement, the latest provision that has come out of brussels, stating the political ambitions going forward. we have had the main agreement, that 585 page agreement that sets out the terms of the divorce, but the next thing that needed to come out was the political statement with the aspirations for what bush future shape of the uk and the eu would look like. it has emerged this morning that theresa may was in brussels yesterday for talks with jean—claude juncker. she left without agreement, and there had been speculation that it was doubtful possibly that there might be agreement in time for a summit on sunday. questions about whether that would happen, but we have now had that agreement published this morning and we are expecting theresa may to come out of downing street and update the media on it. she is
also going to be speaking in the commons at 3pm this afternoon. so the choreography from here is that we will get the prime minister speaking in downing street later today, she will be speaking in the commons. she is also speaking to and meeting the austrian chancellor at downing street this afternoon. final checks on the microphone to check it is all set forward one of prime minister does come out. there had been as i say speculation that the summit, which is planned for sunday, may not have happened, because angela merkel and emmanuel macron was a move would not go to brussels for a was a move would not go to brussels fora summit on was a move would not go to brussels for a summit on sunday if there were many unresolved issues. they wanted a deal to have been properly established. there were delays in finalising the text on that future revision sure between the uk and the eu because of last—minute demands
and concerns by various countries, france is particularly concerned over fishing, france is particularly concerned overfishing, and france is particularly concerned over fishing, and spain france is particularly concerned overfishing, and spain over gibraltar. so those are issues that we re gibraltar. so those are issues that were putting a last—minute spanner in the works, but in the event this trust has been agreed, and the headlines to bring you from it are that the deal says there was a determination to replace the northern ireland backstop, which of course has been so controversial, with alternative arrangements. theresa may has said it is possible technology could get around the issue of the hard border on the irish border, and that is something that has previously been mentioned by brexiteers, previously dismissed. now the prime minister is saying technology could potentially be the solution to that issue, and says there is a determination to replace there is a determination to replace the backstop with alternative
arrangements. the deal also allows the uk to develop an independent trade policy. again, that has been a very important aspect of this come of the possibility to negotiate other trade agreements, so here comes theresa may and we will listen to what she has to say. throughout these difficult and complex negotiations with the european union, i have had one goal in mind, to honour the vote of the british people, and deliver a good brexit deal. last week, we achieved a decisive breakthrough, when we agreed with the european commission the terms for our smooth and orderly exit from the eu. alongside that withdrawal agreement, we published an outline political declaration, setting up a framework for our future relationship. last night in brussels, i had a good detailed discussion with presidentjuncker, in which i set out what was needed in that political declaration to deliver for the united kingdom. in that political declaration to deliverfor the united kingdom. we
tasked our negotiating teams to continue working overnight, and as a result, the text of that declaration has been agreed between the european union and the united kingdom. i have just updated the cabinet on progress andi just updated the cabinet on progress and i will be making a statement to the house of commons later this afternoon. this is the right deal for the afternoon. this is the right deal forthe uk, it afternoon. this is the right deal for the uk, it delivers on the vote of the referendum. it brings back control of our borders, our money and our laws, control of our borders, our money and ourlaws, and control of our borders, our money and our laws, and it does so while protecting jobs, protecting our security, and protecting the integrity of the united kingdom. the agreement we have reached is between the uk and the european commission. it is now up to the 27 leaders of the other eu member states to examine this agreement in the days leading up to the special eu council meeting on sunday. i will be speaking to my counterparts over that time, including meeting chancellor kurtz of austria here in downing street later today. last
night, i spoke to the spanish prime minister, pedro sanchez, and i‘m confident that on sunday we will be able to agree a deal that delivers for the whole uk family, including gibraltar. on saturday, i will return to brussels for further meeting with presidentjuncker, where we will discuss how to bring this process to a conclusion in the interests of all our people. the british people want this to be settled, they want a good deal that sets us on settled, they want a good deal that sets us on course for a settled, they want a good deal that sets us on course for a brighter future. that deal is within our grasp, and! future. that deal is within our grasp, and i am determined to deliver it. a short statement from the prime minister. she says she wants a good deal that set us on course for a brighterfuture, deal that set us on course for a brighter future, and she deal that set us on course for a brighterfuture, and she believes she will help to deliver that. she has been updating the cabinet, she will be in the cabinet —— in the commons at 3pm to update mps in the
commons at 3pm to update mps in the commons and take questions on it. she says it is the right deal for the uk, her new mantra boils down to effectively saying it will bring back control and protect prosperity. she says it delivers on what people voted for. it takes us out of the eu but protects jobs and economic prosperity. let‘s get the thoughts of norman smith, our assistant political editor. this is a deal that has been described by ian fleming in —— adam fleming in brussels as offering something for everyone. will it be enough for theresa may to get mps to swing behind her and see this through the commons? that is the key question. this is the deal which she hopes she can sell. in part, that is because the language is fairly open—ended, it is fairly vague in key areas, but there is in this document something for her brexit critics. so for example, on the backstop, it
suggests there will be a mutual determination on the part of the eu and the uk to bring it to an end. it suggests the uk will still be able to develop its own independent trade policy, despite having close cooperation with the eu, when it comes to customs and regulation. on the vexed issue of fisheries policy, that argument is put off for another day, but crucially there is no mention, not a sin taylor about the common eu rule book, which you remember was at the heart of mrs naib‘s chequers proposal is an infuriated the brexiteers. now that is gone and instead there is a little nudge and a wink to the brexiteers, saying actually we care to think about using new technology to think about using new technology to get round the threat of a hard border. in other words, she has opened up the opportunity of going down the road that the brexiteers
have been pushing for. all of which said, there is no binding commitment here, one leading brexiteer described the document as a legally unenforceable vacuous waffle. it is entirely aspirational, but there are mrs may will seek to make to her own party to try to get them on board. it is not going to win over the dad‘s army brigade, jacob rees—mogg, but the hope will be that those who area bit but the hope will be that those who are a bit more wobbly, a bit more hesitant about voting against this deal, can be encouraged tojust hesitant about voting against this deal, can be encouraged to just cut to one side the reservations and say well, there are things in this document that give me cause to think actually i can back mrs may‘s deal. you can sort of imagine the heads exploding from those who were saying some time ago that a technological a nswer some time ago that a technological answer was the one to resolve the
irish border issue. the fact that theresa may is now coming along and saying ok, that is something we will look at, does that resolve it? because of course the government was quite dismissive of that previously, saying it is just not an option, the technology is not there. no, these are words. when you talk to the brexiteers, they say they are not interested in having words about technology in this document, because this is not binding, this is not legal text, this is mere general hopes for the future. they want a commitment to technology in the withdrawal agreement because that is legally binding. theirfear withdrawal agreement because that is legally binding. their fear is that they are just being strung along, mrs may is using if you like their language to get them on board while in point of fact not really committing herself to anything. added to which, as we know, mrs may has been highly critical of the idea that there is sort of off—the—shelf
technology to get round the issue of a hard border in northern ireland. all of which said, there will be tory mps who are critical of mrs may‘s deal who nevertheless well, i think, take on board some of the arguments we heard from herjust then, namely many people want this over with, they don‘t want it going on forever and a day, and there will bea on forever and a day, and there will be a sense of, ok, it‘s not perfect, but let‘s just get it over with, and i think that is the sort of mood that mrs may will capitalise on, i hope will be to bear down on the number of the tory critics, so that it becomes more manageable. still not at all easy, but possible, perhaps, to get this deal through. if you manage to get the number of the hard brexiteers way down from the hard brexiteers way down from the 80s they have talked to, say down into the 20s, then it is game on, then you can perhaps maybe peel off some labour vote and get it through, and you begin to see how the government hope, against the
odds, perhaps a store to get this deal through. norman, odds, perhaps a store to get this dealthrough. norman, you said about people just wanting this to be over. it has been the most extraordinary roller—coaster for a very long time. just over the last week, the ups and downs, the everything is doomed, no it is going to be ok, yesterday we had theresa may in brussels coming back and the doubts even whether there will be an agreement before sunday and suddenly today, is there an element of expectation management going on sometimes that means when something comes through, like this agreement today, there is relief that actually it has been done? expectation management! perish the thought! of course there is! there is nothing better for mrs thought! of course there is! there is nothing betterfor mrs may thought! of course there is! there is nothing better for mrs may than having a fracas with the french or the european commission, a tussle with the spanish over gibraltar, a bit of fisticuffs with the french overfish. bit of fisticuffs with the french over fish. it‘s all great, bit of fisticuffs with the french overfish. it‘s all great, in terms
of how it plays in the domestic audience, of course there is expectation management, but the other point you make is that this has been a story of twists and turns and there will be more twists and turns as we head towards that critical vote, probably, i turns as we head towards that criticalvote, probably, iguess, maybe in the third week of december. and the odds are still, on balance, against mrs may. she faces a fraught tussle, she appears to have lost her allies in the dup, there is a hard co re allies in the dup, there is a hard core of brexiteers who come what may well vote against the prime minister, and so far there is no sign of labourmps minister, and so far there is no sign of labour mps leading to her rescue. that is what she really needs. she needs to see science, not just of her brexiteer opponents beginning to dissolve, she needs some labour mps to come on board, and so farshe some labour mps to come on board, and so far she hasn‘t got it. so quite possible that she could lose,
and then we are into completely unknown territory. norman, thank you. an update on the headlines. m15 admits for the first time that it failed to track the manchester arena bomber, salman abedi. the attacker blew himself up at an ariana grande concert in 2017, killing 22 people. eu and british negotiators agree on a 26—page declaration on britain‘s future relationship with europe . the wife of matthew hedges —— jailed for spying in the united arab emirates —— accuses the government of putting british interests above her husband‘s fate . the bbc‘s 100 women series continues — all this week we‘re highlighting inspirational women from around the globe. isabel allende is one of the most acclaimed writers in the world. she draws on her own eventful life in herfiction, telling stories of love, exile and loss. she spoke to kirsty wark, and began by recollecting events in 1973, when her uncle, the then—president of chile, salvador allende, was ousted in a coup that led to 17 years of brutal dictatorship.
can you remember exactly where you we re can you remember exactly where you were during the coup?|j can you remember exactly where you were during the coup? i was in my house. i left with my car and i realise something was going on, the streets were empty, and there we re the streets were empty, and there were military trucks, and something was happening, and i got office and it was closed. in the concierge that was at the door said go back home, go back home, this is a military coup. he was very happy, because he was a total right—wing jerk. and he said go home. i didn‘t know what a military coup was because in chilly we don‘t have precedent for this. but if that was terrifying then, it became much more terrifying. the
first day was terrifying because it was so first day was terrifying because it was so unexpected. the helicopters, the bombing of the palace, the shooting, the burning of books, arresting people and shoving them into trucks. all of that was terrifying the first day but then we had a curfew and no one could get out for three days, and television, everything was censored, you didn‘t have any news, only rumours. so in a way in those three days we sort of got used to the idea that something extraordinary had happened, but it wouldn‘t last. then in the months to come, the days, weeks and months to come, the days, weeks and months to come, we realised what it is to live in terror. for half the population, because the other half was having a great time. and indeed that split initially was also in your own family? everywhere, not only my own family? everywhere, not only my own family that every family in chilly had at least one person that had suffered, and families were split. couples were split. how did you get
out? i got out with no problem, i had a passport and eight left, alone first. and i went to venezuelan, because venezuela was one of the very few democratic countries left in latin america, and they would give a visa to a chilean, because in mexico we are not allowed any more. and so ijust left, thinking i would come back in a month, and then my husband said, well, he found out i couldn‘t go back. husband said, well, he found out i couldn't go back. so you came upon the idea of being a writer, you already were a journalist, but you came upon the idea of being a writer. holding onto the idea of memories you said it helped to break the chain of hate in your soul. what did you mean by that? because, and i think this happen to many people, that when you were forced out of a place, when you have to leave everything behind, when you feel that everything that was dear and familiar to you is lost, you have
grudges, and you feel that something is owed to you or something, you have been stolen or something. i got over that feeling completely. you write in spanish was stop guess, well, fiction. i can write a speech in english or something that is non—english, but fiction happens here, it doesn‘t happen in the brain. soi here, it doesn‘t happen in the brain. so i wouldn‘t be able to process fiction with dictionaries. you still think in spanish? piller yes, and! you still think in spanish? piller yes, and i dream in spanish, i pray in spanish, i make love in spanish. i would feel ridiculous panting in english, actually! laughter health warnings have been issued in parts of australia as a giant dust storm passes across the east of the country. the 500km—wide storm has been travelling up from the south, picking up dust in drought—affected new south wales. the sky over many cities and towns turned orange, with warnings issued for people with respiratory problems to stay in doors.
dust storms are typical at this time of year for inland australia, but it‘s rare for them to reach the east coast. how do you know when an oyster is ready to reproduce? a slightly odd question i know, but finding the answer is critical for oyster fishermen who are trying to boost stocks off the essex coastline. now, marine biologists at the university of essex have begun using an unusual device to help answer it , a magnet. our science correspondent richard westcott reports, off the windswept essex coast, a 1000—year—old industry is still grappling with an age—old problem. to boost oyster stocks, fishermen need to know exactly when the animals are reproducing. in a much warmer lab at essex university, scientists think they‘ve found an answer. you can see the magnet is connected to the top half there, so then we can measure the amount of opening, the amount of gaping that the oysters do.
when female oysters release their eggs, they do something strange... she shows the behaviour for 45 minutes, one hour, something like that, where the valves go pump, pump, pump, in a very steady rhythm. and you can see the eggs coming out from this rare footage shot by scientists in alabama. using a magnet and a sensor, the essex team can monitor that opening and closing. now they‘re testing it at sea. so, tom, it‘s quite an office you‘ve got here, on a raft in the middle of the estuary. it absolutely is. a bit colder today, but we do get to work out here. the purpose of the sensor is to tell us when 50% or more of the oysters, that are down here in the water attached to wires, have already spawned. we can actually see the spawning behaviour through the dynamics of the valves of the oysters opening and closing, sending that signal up the wire, into the data hub, up to a 4g connectivity transmitter, that will send a signal back to the mobile—phone—connected computer in the office of the oyster men. once they get that signal,
colchester oyster fishery has just a matter of days to lay tons of crushed shells onto the sea floor. the baby oysters love to settle on the shells and grow. but lay them too early and they get covered in mud, lay them too late and the larvae get washed away. the oyster data could bring other benefits too. this estuary is experiencing climate change. it has changing temperature regimes so we‘ve seen warmer coastal seas here, warmer than we had before, and warmer environments more often than we have before. and it would be great to be able to use this tool to get more rich information on how species are responding to their environment here in the wild. richard the lionheart granted the first rights to fish these waters. now, the latest science is keeping one of our oldest industries alive. richard westcott, bbc news,
mersea island in essex. ina in a moment it is time for the one o‘clock news with ben brown, then first time for a look at the weather with tomasz schafernaker. another chilly day out there after that frosty start. it went be quite so called this coming night. in fact, over the next few days, there are signs perhaps it will become a little less cold. but i want to emphasise the word less cold, because it still will remain pretty chilly. as long as the clouds and generally the whole weather comes out of the east or the south—east, we keep that colder weather, and you can see the wind is blowing out of central parts of europe today, and just a hint that may something slightly milder leaks into southern areas through today and possibly the weekend, as well. this is what it looks like this afternoon, single figure temp ajer is really struggling in some areas, cold and cloudy across eastern areas, rain in the north—east, a few showers in the
south—west, and then tonight the thinking is there will be quite a lot of cloud across the uk. that prevents the temperatures from dropping too low. first thing on friday morning, we are not anticipating quite a widespread frost, or as widespread as it was earlier this morning. the weather tomorrow is going to stay pretty chilly. notice the weather front in the south—west, that means perhaps some showers for cornwall and devon but for most of us actually it is just cloudy with occasional glimmers of sun, but most of the showers will be in the south—west probably. temperatures tomorrow nudging back up temperatures tomorrow nudging back up to around 10 degrees, that‘s slightly milder air leaking in from the south that i mentioned, 12 may in balmy plymouth but for most of us around single figures. saturday not looking too great across the south, we think. this weather front kind of aligned itself with these southern counties and that basically spells a lot of cloud from outbreaks of rain
from cornwall, devon, maybe southern parts of wales, through hampshire and into the south—east, possibly the london area here. one or two showers elsewhere but i think it is in the south we will need our brollies from time to time. those temperatures still struggling at around nine to 10 degrees. that is saturday‘s forecast. sunday it looks like it will be fairly cloudy with a possibility of maybe some spots of rain across the south or the east but on the whole you can see those easterly winds continue and it is still into single figures. the right deal for britain: theresa may commends an agreement just reached with brussels on our future relationship with the eu. the prime minister says she‘s confident the deal will be signed off by eu leaders at the weekend. this is the right dealfor the uk. it delivers on the vote of the referendum, it brings back control of our borders, our money and our laws, and it does so while protecting jobs, protecting our security, and protecting the integrity of the uk. we‘ll have the latest from
