casualties, it is a very early stages, depending which reports you look at that are just coming through in the last few minutes. certainly, there appeared to be people wounded. for example, the news agency saying that at least three people have been wounded. the reuters news agency saying that they saw three people at least being put onto stretchers by rescue workers at the scene. and one of our correspondence in the region has been talking to someone who runs a cafe in that city. he said he was concerned that there are people both wounded and killed. but that is just from one person and that is very early reports at this stage. but afp certainly saying it appears to be a car bomb outside a courthouse in the city. you will remember it is only a
1:39 pm
very short time since that appalling attack on a nightclub in turkey on new year's eve, in istanbul, that killed 39 people and injured many more. clearly, details coming through from turkey or the time and we will keep you up to date with that. let's get more now on brexit, specifically the appointment of sir tim barrow as the uk's new ambassador to the eu. the chancellor philip hammond has been speaking to sky news arabia on a trip to abu dhabi. he said the out—going ambassador, sir ivan rogers had done a good job, but had chosen to resign because of the timing of brexit negotiations. he was coming to the end of his tenure, coming up to his retirement later this year, and he has taken the decision that he should go early and allow somebody else to take over
1:40 pm
now, before the article 50 notice is served, before negotiations begin, and then to see those negotiations right the way through to the conclusion. tim barrow, i know well. i work very closely with tim barrow. i appointed him as my political director in the foreign office. he isa director in the foreign office. he is a very experienced and seasoned diplomat. very tough. he was our ambassador in moscow for many years. he has worked in the eu before so he has good knowledge of how it works and he is a very tough negotiator. he is going to be a great asset for britain in this negotiating process. philip hammond talking this afternoon. a skier has been rescued from a chair—lift in utah after becoming trapped by his backpack. the incident occurred monday at a mountain resort south of salt lake city. the lift operators moved quickly to stop the lift and put a mat on the ground below in case the boy fell.
1:41 pm
we could not believe this was happening right in front of us. he was hanging down below the chair lift a good couple of feet. we were all very concerned, not only that he would drop, but that perhaps his backpack could be strangling him. they grabbed a very long ladder and brought it up to the lifts and leaned it against the chairlift. 0ne individual climbed up. that ski patrol guy is strong to pull him like that. when we saw him being lifted up onto that chair, we were all ecstatic. superhero! i was amazed that he was able to
1:42 pm
hang out there as long as he did. but he was doing the right things. getting the weight off of him. getting the weight off of him. getting his pulls away from him so if he did fall he would not get impaled. that footage that has just been released of a skier being rescued in utah. now we are going to return to that breaking news from turkey. reports coming through in the last few minutes of an explosion in that city. details still very much coming through. certainly quite a few news agencies saying at least three people have been wounded. and also one other agency talking about the police apparently having shot one person in the light of this attack. details still very much just coming in buta details still very much just coming
1:43 pm
in but a number of people wounded. it would seem this is an explosion outside or very close to a courthouse. a lot of tension in turkey in the light of the attack on a nightclub on new year's eve. we will keep an eye on that. a number of emergency vehicles and ambulances at the scene according to eyewitnesses. four teenage boys from cumbria have been arrested on suspicion of raping a 15—year—old girl. the alleged incident happened in workington two days ago. 0ur correspondent fiona trott has been following the story for us. this investigation has attracted a lot of attention because of the ages of the boys who were arrested overnight. three of them just 13 yea rs overnight. three of them just 13 years old, one of them 1a years old. cumbria police have told us that a 15—year—old girl was walking along a road in workington on tuesday evening near the local council
1:44 pm
building, near the local football club. they believe she was followed and then attack on a grass area near and then attack on a grass area near a car park. three 13—year—old boys and a 14—year—old boy have been arrested on suspicion of rape. they are being questioned by detectives today and cumbria police are appealing for information. a short while ago my colleague... i do apologise, that is a different story. that was our correspondent talking about the arrests in cumbria following the alleged attack in workington. let's just see whether we can bring you a few details about turkey. it is still very unclear in terms of the number of casualties. it has only come through in the last 15 minutes or so but we do know that there has been an explosion outside a courthouse or very close to a courthouse in a western city in
1:45 pm
turkey. 0ne courthouse in a western city in turkey. one of our correspondence in the region has been speaking to someone who runs a cafe close by. he was talking about an explosion and, in his opinion, it was a suicide attack. this is just in his opinion, it was a suicide attack. this isjust one man's opinion. he is basing that on what he is seeing and hearing. she did explain that the man was very much in shock. but that was his concern. this is the first image that has come through from the scene. the reason we are focusing so much on this is because, again, turkey, which has had so many problems in the last few months was the victim ofan the last few months was the victim of an attack only in the last few days. there was that shooting in a nightclub on new year's eve. as you can see on your screen, the reuters news agency has been reporting in the last few minutes that turkish
1:46 pm
police have killed one person in the wa ke police have killed one person in the wake of that attack. that has come from a security source in the area. turkish police, it appears, have shot dead one suspected attacker. that is how they are describing it. let's talk to our correspondent in istanbul. very early days but explain what we know so far. u nfortu nately, explain what we know so far. unfortunately, this is the first moments of this explosion and we know very little. we know it has happened in front of the courthouse. according to one eyewitness i have just talk to, he said the police, the checkpoint in front of the courthouse, has been targeted. there are also some rumours of clashes in front of it. it might be between the police officers in front of the
1:47 pm
building who are there to protect the area and the building itself with some attackers, but these are unconfirmed reports. these are the early moments of this explosion. u nfortu nately, early moments of this explosion. unfortunately, this is the second time this week we are reporting an attack from turkey. as you might remember, only two hours into new year, we woke up and heard of a new attack in turkey carried out by isis, so—called islamic state, and killed 39 people in istanbul. just after this is a big shock and we will understand more and more when the officials start explaining what happened today. absolutely. and as you are reflecting, people watching this will be familiar, regrettably, with the number of attacks that have hit istanbul in recent times. give
1:48 pm
us hit istanbul in recent times. give usa hit istanbul in recent times. give us a little bit more context about the town itself. has it been vulnerable to violence in the past? izmir has never been the target of an attack in the past. it is a coastal area, it is one of the biggest cities on the aegean coast and it is a particularly safe place when it comes to those kind of issues because, as you might remember, turkey has been targeted by the kurdish militants and so—called islamic state so far and it isa so—called islamic state so far and it is a very secular place where isas cells cannot find much life in it. -- isas cells cannot find much life in it. —— isis cells. this is the first, as far as i can remember, the first, as far as i can remember, the first attack that happened in izmir
1:49 pm
in the last two years. but of course this is quite sad because we know in the past two years, turkey's many major cities have been targeted and izmir was not on the list. now we see these beautiful city's name on the list, unfortunately. we hope the number of dead is not going to be high but there is still time to understand what is the casualties of such an attack. thank you. we will let you go away and talk to the authorities and get more details. those still images you are seeing from the scene have literallyjust come through to us at the bbc. it is worth mentioning that the reuters agency is quoting the turkish police as saying that a second attacker has been killed. also, reuters now going
1:50 pm
on to say that a local official for that city says the blast was indeed caused by a car bomb. those are the details that are coming out. it does appear to be details that are coming out. it does appearto bea details that are coming out. it does appear to be a car bomb and a number of officials believe that two suspected attackers have been killed. the emergency services still very much at the scene so we will keep you up to date. ina keep you up to date. in a moment we will have all the latest business news. first, a reminder of today's headlines. the number of new cars sold in the uk hit an all time high in 2016, up 2% on the previous year. the price of petrol and diesel rose by 3p a litre during december, meaning the price of fuel is now at its highest level since july 2015. and the children's commissioner has warned that children are being left
1:51 pm
to fend for themselves against online grooming and bullying. in the business news today... sports direct chairman keith hellawell has been re—election on the board. the company has been dogged by criticism over its treatment of staff. younger generations will inherit much more money than their parents and grandparents but the amounts they get will be very unequal. research by the institute for fiscal studies says the wealth of the older generation has grown by 45% over just ten years. the uk service sector grew at its fastest pace for 17 months in december. however, prices charged in the sector rose to its strongest rate since april 2011. more controversy surrounding censorship in china. apple has withdrawn the new york times from its china app store,
1:52 pm
following a request from chinese authorities. the newspaper said the move was aimed at preventing readers in china "from accessing independent news coverage". joining me from the floor of the new york stock exchange is michelle fleury. what are the reasons that the chinese authorities have given? the cyberspace administration of china, which is the main regulatorfor this, hasn't actually commented, but a government spokesman has said a few words. he said he didn't know the specifics but that china was a supporter of the internet. if you look back at the history of the new york times when it comes to china, its own website both in english and chinese was banned back in 2012 after they published an article on some of the wealthiest families in china. since then, they have been operating as an application through
1:53 pm
apple's stores. until recently that was available but now we are hearing that has been pulled. the reasons aren't exactly clear. apple have said they were asked to remove the application because it violated some rules and conditions in china but what rules were violated, that is still not known. how much can the new york times or other companies that face this situation in china, how much can they do about it? it is not hugely surprising that google, youtube, it is very difficult to access in china. our other sites likely to follow? if you look at a lot of the biggest names in technology. american companies. google, for example, would like access to china, doesn't really have it. facebook have made it clear they would like access to the chinese market. mark zuckerberg has invested a lot of time in the country,
1:54 pm
speaking mandarin, but has not been able to secure the kind of access that facebook would like there. it is rumoured, and very much a rumour, that facebook has been developing softwa re that facebook has been developing software that could censor some content that would violate chinese rules. i think that is the concern. at what cost can these american technology companies operate in china. linked in does operate in china. linked in does operate in china. that is something that raised eyebrows at amnesty international, who are concerned about this. and in the case of apple, it was not that long ago that the company was involved in a dispute over privacy and rights with the us government over the contents of a phone that belonged to a government official. there is a sense they are applying one rule in the us and a different rule in china, which is the company's rule in china, which is the compa ny‘s third rule in china, which is the company's third biggest market. thank you. that is all the business news for
1:55 pm

1:56 pm
bya car believed this explosion was caused by a car bomb. that is not confirmed yet but a number of people in the area suggesting that is the case. we believe it was a car bomb but the police themselves have not yet confirmed that. certainly a sizeable number of casualties at the moment. certainly ten people wounded that we know of. and these the live images. a lot of construction work, it is quite hard to make out with the courthouse is in this image. we have had reports of fires as a result of the explosion. not visible in that particular camera angle. but lots of people standing around, watching, trying to work out what is going on. being held back, one assumes, from the scene. but ten people wounded, thatis the scene. but ten people wounded, that is what hospitals in the area are saying. but that is still very much an ongoing police and security
