tv   Breakfast  BBC News  January 22, 2017 7:00am-8:00am GMT

7:00 am
everyone we have discussed forward. everyone we have discussed this with has come on board. really, the association with basingstoke is not as well—known as it should be. that is what we want to celebrate, that jane austen spent time here and lived and shopped and danced in raising six. the final and rather delicate work has now been done and it will be cast in april, leaving this town with a sense of pride, not prejudice. the people there will be delighted. stay with us, the headlines are coming up next. hello, this is breakfast, with rachel burden and roger johnson. theresa may will be the first world leader to meet president trump.
7:01 am
his spokesman confirms they will meet on friday. a trade deal and brexit are expected to be on the agenda. as hundreds of thousands take to the streets in protest against the new president, the white house goes to war over reports of the numbers who attended friday's inauguration. we had a massive field of people. you saw them, packed. i get up this morning, i turn on one of the networks, and they show an empty field. good morning, it is sunday 22 january. also ahead: after reports that a trident missile test went wrong, the ministry of defence says it has absolute confidence in its nuclear defence system. a cancer charity calls for more to be done to encourage women to have smear tests.
7:02 am
in sport: britain's andy murray is up against it in the last 16 of the australian open. the world number one is 2—1 down against germany's mischa zverev. and nick has the weather. good morning. it is another cold, frosty start. icy in a few spots, too, because there are some showers around. that means for most of us today will be cloudier than yesterday. for others, though, still some sparkling sunshine on offer. all the details coming up in the next half an hour. good morning. first, our main story: theresa may will become the first foreign leader to meet the new us president in washington. they are due to have talks on friday. the announcement was made during donald trump's first day in office, which also saw a series of protests against his administration, and an onslaught against the media for "inaccurate" reporting. our us correspondent david willis has more. crowd: hey, hey! ho, ho! donald trump has got to go! in the nation's capital, they have rarely seen a rally quite like this.
7:03 am
not since the vietnam war have so many people come together, in defence of women's rights and minority rights, liberties these people believe could be imperilled by the presidency of donald trump. the man himself was visiting the headquarters of the cia whilst that rally was underway, less concerned about secrets, it appeared, than crowd sizes, in particular reports of the attendance at his inauguration the previous day. i made a speech. i looked out, the field was... it looked like a million, 1.5 million people. they showed a field where there was practically nobody standing there. that theme was echoed in an unscheduled news conference a short while later. before confirming that britain's theresa may would be the first foreign leader to visit president trump, the new white house press spokesman railed against reports that mr trump had failed to attract as large
7:04 am
a crowd to his inauguration as barack obama. this was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration, period. these attempts to lessen the enthusiasm of the inauguration are shameful and wrong. official estimates of crowd sizes are not released, but aerial photographs appear to contradict the trump administration's assessment. nonetheless, mr spicer, in his first briefing at the white house, went on to issue a thinly veiled threat to reporters covering the trump presidency. we're going to hold the press accountable as well. he will take his message directly to the american people, where his focus will always be. size clearly matters greatly to donald trump, and regardless of the inauguration crowds, the crowd at yesterday's protest was so large that a march on the white house proved impossible, because there were so many people present. it is a question of which will ultimately prove the most
7:05 am
unpalatable to the new administration, the messenger or the message. our political correspondent susana mendonca is in our central london newsroom for us. susana, what more do we know about the prime minister's visit? to downing street to get this meeting with president trump. how much can they achieve initial co nta ct? much can they achieve initial contact? this is an opportunity for theresa may to meet donald trump, and that is very symbolic, and the fa ct and that is very symbolic, and the fact that she will be the first leader to do so is something that downing street will be very happy about. it is something they have been working towards since donald trump was elected and nigel farage, the ukip leader, was the first edition politician to meet donald trump in the days which followed his election back in november and that was viewed, really, with irritation by theresa may and by downing street
7:06 am
so by theresa may and by downing street so the fact that she will be getting to meet donald trump is certainly a good thing for them. what will they be discussing? well, we expect them to discuss a potential trade deal and also the european union, also nato. she will talk about issues of concern for her so in terms of the trade deal, at this stage it is not going to be a case of deciding a trade deal, because written can't do that until it leaves the european union but it certainly strengthens her hand in view of those negotiations with the eu which are to follow —— britain. the ministry of defence has insisted it has full confidence in the trident nuclear defence system, despite reports that a rare test—firing went wrong last year. the sunday times says a missile fired from a submarine in the atlantic ocean veered off—course, and in the direction of the united states. the rocket was not armed. andy moore reports. this is what the launch of a trident missile looks like. it is an expensive business. even an unarmed missile
7:07 am
costs around £70 million, so it doesn't happen very often. no video has been released of last year's launch, because, says the sunday times, it went badly wrong. according to the paper, hms vengeance was stationed about 200 miles off the coast of florida. it was due to fire the missile 5,600 miles, to a location off the west coast of africa. instead the rocket veered off—target, heading towards the us. all this was just a few weeks before a crucial vote in parliament to spend £40 billion on building a new generation of trident submarines. one labour former defence minister is now calling for an inquiry. the government hasn't denied that the missile from hms vengeance may have veered off—course, but it said the capability and effectiveness of the trident missile was unquestionable. in a statement, a spokesman added... the government and the prime
7:08 am
minister are now expect to face further questions about what exactly did happen with the trident launch last year. the former president of the gambia, yahya jammeh, has flown into exile, 22 years after taking control of the west african state in a coup. he sparked a political crisis when he refused to accept the outcome of the country's election, but finally agreed to hand over power to the winner, adama barrow, after the leaders of neighbouring countries threatened military action. french voters will begin the process of choosing a presidential candidate for the ruling socialist party today. the current president, francois hollande, announced last month that he won't be standing for re—election. our correspondent hugh schofield is in paris. how does this fit into the way the french presidential election is shaping up? good morning to you. the socialists
7:09 am
face the problem of trying to actually win the election once they have a candidate, but what does mr hollande not standing do in that section of the process? what it means and usually is that there isn't an outgoing president to take the banner forward and try and get re—elected and that downer has passed to the man who was his prime minister for three years, manuel valls, representing a kind of continuity with the right wing of the socialist party. he is up against a number of characters on the left of the party, two need to be pointed out in particular, arnaud montebourg and hamon, they are the main contenders from the left wing of the socialist party, and what will happen today is probably that we will get manuel valls probably representing the right and one of those people representing the left will go through and there will be a run—off next week in which one or two will be chosen to represent the socialists that the party. i have to
7:10 am
say that in normal times this would bea say that in normal times this would be a very big deal and the left would be represented by such and such a person in the election. these are not normal times. the socialist party is in deep disarray and it is possible the main contender will not be from the socialist party when it comes to the actual election in may. the time new cars are allowed on britain's roads before they need an mot could go up from three to four years, under government proposals. the department for transport said safer technology and improved manufacturing means new vehicles stay roadworthy for longer. the change, which could come in from 2018, would bring britain in line with northern ireland and many other european countries. they would have to relax the rules quite a bit from my card not to need one. eight years, i think it is guaranteed! it sounds like the plot to a classic american road—trip movie. five young adventurers make a perilous coast—to—coastjourney, to build a new life in the west. well, now it has happened in real
7:11 am
life, to a group of baby raccoons. they were born in a truck in florida, which was driven to california. the driver only discovered his stowaways four days later. the racoons are now being cared for at a local zoo, until a new, more permanent home is found. all that climbing around and getting into places they shouldn't be. it is just like sunday morning in my household. they are much more acute! raccoons? yes. if you knew a simple test could help save your life, you would think most of us would take it. but, when it comes to cervical cancer screening, it seems many women are delaying check—ups, or simply ignoring them altogether. tina holland knows just how important this is, because she was diagnosed with the early stages of cancer after putting off a smear test. shejoins us, along with robert music, who is the chief executive ofjo's cervical cancer trust. thank you very much indeed for
7:12 am
coming in. it is good to see you both. we gave a precis of your story there. flesh it out a little bit for us. there. flesh it out a little bit for us. tell us exactly what happened to you. so we had the initial letter around about the age of 25, put it to one side, ignored it. and kept adding reminders and about two years later a friend of mine put on social media that she had early stages of cancer, and urged everyone to go and get their smear test done, which i did. thinking that is not going to happen to me and it came back that i had the early stages of cervical cancer. how did that diagnosis affect you? you hear that word, cancer, and you think i going to be around to see my grow up? and i was very lucky, very, very lucky, that i caught it early. why did you put it off initially? it was one of those
7:13 am
things that, you know, my arm is not having so i don't need to go to the doctor. i had no symptoms, and it was just one of those things which... anxiety about the procedure? no, not at all. the procedure? no, not at all. the procedure itself didn't scare me or daunt me, but it was just a case of making time. how common is that amongst women in terms of the reasons that they don't come to theirgp? reasons that they don't come to their gp? it is very common. we have commissioned some research among women aged 25 to 29, and i guess the main reasons are that embarrassment, worried it is being painful, interestingly our research as well has shown that they don't attend because they are worried about the result, because they think it is a test to find cancer, rather than prevent cancer. it is a real concern that one in three women aged 25 to 29 are not attending screening and screening generally is at a 19 year low in england and is dropping across the uk. excuse my ignorance,
7:14 am
explain what you mean about what the testis explain what you mean about what the test is for. is it not to detect cancer? again, that is a bit of a misconception. so the thing about cervical screening is to try prevented in the first place so it is looking for any cells in the cervix which may be abnormal and if they are found on the woman is referred for coposcopy. so it is pre—emptive, and burying your head in the sand thinking it won't happen to you is... you may have nothing wrong, but it may be an early indicator to the fact that you could —— colposcopy. indicator to the fact that you could -- colposcopy. iraq a whole range of barriers as to why women are not attending, they are very different depending on your age, your ethnicity. but i think we also want to see accessibility improved. is there an access problem? because
7:15 am
women with busy lives and lots of commitments, making the time, it sounds daft, to get your gp. commitments, making the time, it sounds daft, to get your gpw commitments, making the time, it sounds daft, to get your gp. it is very, very real. it can be hard for women to get time off work or book an appointment at a time that works for them, as well. one of the things that we very much like to see and it has come out in our research is that for a woman to be able to be screened anywhere they like, any gp's surgery. if you live in london but work in manchester, if you could go intoa but work in manchester, if you could go into a gp practice around the corner from where you work, and be screened, there is much more chance that you will go rather than trying really ha rd to that you will go rather than trying really hard to book an appointment. isa really hard to book an appointment. is a painful thing? one of the things people say as they are worried about being painful. no, not at all. more of a tickle. no, it is fine. i mean, a couple of minutes of discomfort compared to, you know, what could be... discomfort is probably the right word to use and when you think about what other
7:16 am
women put themselves through in terms of their beauty regime, in terms of their beauty regime, in terms of their beauty regime, in terms of pain, it probably doesn't really compare. i think it is partly the embarrassment as well. it is fine. and ever under the letter, but they? so it is not something you need to necessarily worry about and start knocking the gp's door down. when you are ready, when you need one, you will get a letter. is that right? you should do, yes. i would say if you don't at the age of 25, ring yourgp and say if you don't at the age of 25, ring your gp and get a booked in. you are well now, aren't you? yes, all clear. thank you. you're watching breakfast from bbc news. the main stories this morning: theresa may will be the first foreign leader to meet donald trump since he was sworn in as us president. meanwhile, mr trump has accused the media of lying about the size of the crowds at his inauguration, as more than a million peoplejoined protests against the new president in cities around the world. here's nick with a look at this morning's weather. it is chilly, is it? that is right.
7:17 am
good morning. degrees of chill. the ha rd est frost good morning. degrees of chill. the hardest frost is in east. anglia i will take you to essex where it is now will take you to essex where it is now minus eight celsius or very close to that. not too far away from london it is —7 but not that hard frost elsewhere though cardiff and edinburgh arejust frost elsewhere though cardiff and edinburgh are just above freezing at the moment. there are areas of cloud around producing light rain, sleet and snow in places. in scotland and the far east of northern ireland into wales and the midlands into south—west england you could have a late shower or regain a few flurries as we late shower or regain a few flurries as we start the day. and through the day as well. for some of us here it isa day as well. for some of us here it is a cold start and a little bit icy inafew is a cold start and a little bit icy in a few stops is what will. there area in a few stops is what will. there are a couple of mist and fog patches, nothing expensive at the
7:18 am
moment that the weather is there and the hard frost in east anglia. this is where we will see the clearest weather in the day. the best of the sunshine. a few sunny breaks elsewhere, northern ireland for example but from the far south—west of england, wales, northern england and especially into scotland this afternoon where you have thick cloud the chance relied shower and maybe a flurry, not as cold as it has been in wales in south—west england. some places scraping into double figures it will get frosty overnight and some fog patches will develop. more of that across england and wales and paired with recent mornings and so tomorrow morning you can see how extensive that may be, how are dense it could be in places. it could cause disruption again. on monday morning and tuesday morning as well. not everybody will have it but where it pops up, visibility could be very low indeed and it could be very slow
7:19 am
to clear, if at all during the day. where that lingers on, your temperature may be freezing. elsewhere, variable cloud with sunny spells and the temperature reaches five or seven celsius. a little higher across the far south—west. a quick word about what we expect this week— high—pressure keeping england and wales settled. a battle between and wales settled. a battle between and low pressure to the north—west of the uk but eventually will take much the week into the scotland you will see outbreaks of rain later this week. a gradual change on the horizon this week but more frost and fog to come. thank you very much. chilly to say the least. when patients are ready to leave hospital but can't because the care they'll need at home isn't in place, it's described as bed—blocking — and it's a problem that costs the nhs in england £800 million a year.
7:20 am
but although working out what support someone needs is supposed to take weeks, research by the watchdog, healthwatch england, has found in some cases it's taking years. here to tell us more about what it all means for patients and hospital staff is estephanie dunn from the royal college of nursing. thank you very much forjoining us. could you describe the process by which people are supposed to be discharged from hospital and the plans that are supposed to be laid out for them by social care? we are taught in practice that discharge planning starts in admission. so we have a sense of when people need to go home, what their needs may be. if things take a turn for a worthless and people need to go into nursing or social care to have a plan for that as well. assessments can take a few weeks, a couple of months and it really does come down to the availability of the right place for them to go, if there is a baird. who
7:21 am
is in charge? it is not your members? our members provide continuing care nursing assessments are they decide whether or not someone will need ongoing care and how much of that they might need and if they don't need nursing care, what sort of support they may need in their own home. it is a joint assessment that nurses have to do. joint between you and social services. the problem here is that social care is not looked after by the nhs. it has been local councils. it always has been. yes. so we need a better, more joined it always has been. yes. so we need a better, morejoined up it always has been. yes. so we need a better, more joined up system, don't we? yes. that is what integration and devolution plans are across greater manchester the greater challenge is the availability of beds, either foregoing home or going into a care home. in the rest of the country where hills powers are not devolved they are still working through integration. it is something that
7:22 am
politicians have been talking about for yea rs politicians have been talking about for years and we're still waiting to see significant progress. what think is preventing that? funding, fundamentally. we will do an assessment and find out that somebody needs a bed in a particular home or a level of support in their own home or a level of support in their own home and the coast of that, the package of care, could be significant and social services actually have got a very massive sort of, they have had cuts to their budgets are they struggle to find the muggy to move people into the right bed. the government said it re ce ntly right bed. the government said it recently announced £900 million of extra funding for social care over the next two yous. sorry council will hold a referendum on increasing council tax by 15% to try and find the muggy in their area. doom moves like that help? that is more muggy, exactly what you say is needed. some of the levels that people are
7:23 am
discussing, that will make a small impact on the amount of muggy that is required. we have an ageing population and people are living longer so we have more older people who need care and need that care for longer. it is made more difficult because they often have more than one long—term condition to manage and the increase in the number of dementia patients and things like that there is a lot of specialist ca re that there is a lot of specialist care required that is quite difficult to access. we constantly hear it as a funding problem. not be this is just about social services not being efficient and effective enough? that would be an unfair assessment because they have had 40% cut to their budget over the over the last few years. they are working really ha rd to the last few years. they are working really hard to try and find the resources to get people moved on. it is easy to find somebody to blame but the whole system is grossly underfunded, both in hospital and in the community. thank you very much
7:24 am
for your time. and you can hear more on this on bbc 5 live investigates from 11am today. the andrew marr programme is on bbc one this morning at nine o'clock. andrew, what have you got coming up? let us hope so. ahead of the rendezvous with president trump i will talk with the prime minister. i will talk with the prime minister. i will also speak to the shadow chancellor and the former leader of the liberal democrats nick clegg plus the wonderful american sopranos. we do like to give you a little music along with the scary bits. watching the monitor is here and we see that andy murray has just lost in that match at the australian open in melbourne against this german opponent. we will find out more in the sports news. what a blow
7:25 am
because it was going to be, it looked like this first real chance of winning the australian open with djokovic out. just goes to show that you cannot take anything for granted. you're watching breakfast from bbc news, it's time you're watching breakfast from bbc news, it's time now for a look at the newspapers. politics lecturer victoria honeyman is here to tell us what's caught their eye. we'll speak to her in a minute. first of all we will take a look at the front pages this morning. the sunday telegraph, trump's new deal for england. news that theresa may will be visiting the white house, the first foreign leader to meet the new president and trade will be top of the agenda, as you would expect when the two of them get together. a front page of the sunday express. theresa may is my maggie. that is a p pa re ntly theresa may is my maggie. that is apparently privately what president trump has referred to the reason
7:26 am
may, harking back to the days of ronald reagan and margaret thatcher. the observer has pictures from the anti—trump protests, the women's marches that took place all over the world. many women wearing pink pussy hats that they had knitted. thousands marched in washington, dc. those photos went across the world. the call that a united voice of defiance against donald trump. the next paper talks also about president trump, asking him to cut out this sexist insult to finesse. theresa may apparently repaired to tackle him on the comments he has made a and during the election. and in what has been described as a serious malfunction, a tried and malfunction was covered up by downing street. that is the lead in the sunday times this morning and we will have more full on that in the news will have more full on that in the news for you as well. but stopnow to
7:27 am
victoria about some of the stories she has chosen. this is next to the first story you have chosen, the first story you have chosen, the first picture we have seen a donald trump in the oval office but he has already begun work. it is surprising that there is a plethora of donald trump, not surprising, i mean. on the side you have the pomp and circumstance of the oval office and issues about the rugs and the curtains but realistically the big issueis curtains but realistically the big issue is on the leicester which is about obama care. this is one of the first things that trump has done, he has signed an executive order which is essentially starting to cut back obama care. he is insisting that no further development in obama care be made, no further cost incurred. this is president obama's dig domestic... it was what he wanted to leave. yes. it was what he wanted to leave. yes. it brought healthca re it was what he wanted to leave. yes. it brought healthcare to millions of people in america who would otherwise struggled to get it. this is what the telegraph are describing
7:28 am
asa is what the telegraph are describing as a death by 1000 cuts. that we will now see the rolling back of things. they also reference issues relating to climate change and worries over how he will deal with foreign issues relative to china and russia. so, really, this is the beginning of the trumpet year and many people are very concerned about this. many are held in their breath to see what the world will do. the bust of winston churchill has been moved back into a prominent place. barack obama did not get rid of it that shifted elsewhere. as limited as that may sound it may be an indication of the problems he would give to the anglo relationship. obama was very focused on the asia—pacific region because he recognised there were many large market out there and many people in need are dealing with in that region. donald trump is more european focused, or at least it looks that way. i don't think we should necessarily assume that that will mean a brilliant deal for
7:29 am
britain. he has already said america first. an exclusive on a sunday times this morning. they describe it asa times this morning. they describe it as a nuclear cover—up, what has happened? trident has been sold to the nation as a big nuclear system that we rely upon and utilise and has been used as part of the negotiations over the renewal of britain's nuclear arsenal and will cost hundreds of billions of pounds. what the story says is that around about the time of the eu referendum there was a weapons test and essentially is failed. there was a malfunction. this was not publicly announced in the run—up to the big debate about nuclear reunion all in the house of commons, even though the house of commons, even though the ministry of defence knew about ita the ministry of defence knew about it a month beforehand. this is a serious issue that undermines our entire nuclear system but, worryingly, it also suggests that the promises and assumptions that have been made by individuals who support the renewal of trident
7:30 am
missile system or the renewal of the nuclear system have been misled that not all of the facts are they are. it pairs of shoes do you own? plenty. plenty. more than i can probably estimate. so do men. i am not being judgemental. the mail on sunday has this story about a female she aboard soaring to 2a pairs. sunday has this story about a female she aboard soaring to 24 pairs. yes. i wanted something light and fluffy. i have loads of shoes and i think that, you know particular women like particular things, handbags, some have no interest whatsoever. some men love shoes. this indicates that a p pa re ntly men love shoes. this indicates that apparently 24 is the average. i have way more than 24. how many? i had 60 the last time i countered. know why! where do you keep them?|j
7:31 am
the last time i countered. know why! where do you keep them? i have downsized... the average cost is a p pa re ntly downsized... the average cost is apparently £603. thank you very much. one more, time for one more. we have shoes for the ladies and an aston martin for the blokes. this is an aston martin that was found in a wood in a particular state. to me looks like the of thing you would walk past that people who know more than meet salvaged it and have sold it in that state for £305,000. when it in that state for £305,000. when it is restored it will be about 600,000, they say. that is quite... that is an example of what it may look like. it currently looks like that. like a complete wreck. somebody‘s lucky day finding bad. that. like a complete wreck. somebody's lucky day finding badm somebody‘s careless therefore leaving it discarded.|j
7:32 am
somebody‘s careless therefore leaving it discarded. i think it was deliberately discarded, i guess. possibly somebody who did not understand the value of what they had. thank you very much and we will have more from you in the next hour. we will leave bbc one any moment now and return to bbc news channel until nine o'clock this morning. coming up in the next hour... and coming up in the next hour: as the search continues for people still missing at the italian hotel destroyed by an avalanche, we'll hear what the red cross is doing to help. we will meet the record—breaking rally driver who is in a race against time to raise enough money to compete. having been to most places on earth, this week the travel show is journeying back in time. we'll find out where and when in around 20 minutes' time. all that to come on the bbc news channel. but this is where we say goodbye to viewers on bbc one. bye for now. hello, this is breakfast,
7:33 am
with rachel burden and roger johnson. coming up before 8am: nick will have the weather. but first, at 7:30, a summary of this morning's main news. the prime minster is due to become the first foreign leader to hold talks with the new us president. theresa may will meet donald trump in washington on friday. trade, security and the future of the european union are all expected to be high on the agenda. shortly after 8am, we will get the thoughts of nadhim zahawi mp, who sits on the commons foreign affairs committee. millions of people around the world have taken part in protests against president trump's new administration. the demonstrations during his first full day in office had originally been planned to highlight women's rights. the crowd at the washington event surpassed the numbers who turned out to watch friday's inauguration. the ministry of defence has insisted it has full confidence
7:34 am
in the trident nuclear defence system, despite reports that a rare test—firing went wrong last year. the sunday times says a missile fired from a submarine in the atlantic ocean veered off—course and in the direction of the united states. the rocket was not armed. the former president of the gambia, yahya jammeh, has flown into exile, 22 years after taking control of the west african state in a coup. he sparked a political crisis when he refused to accept the outcome of the country's election, but finally agreed to hand over power to the winner, adama barrow, after the leaders of neighbouring countries threatened military action. a charity says many local authorities and clinical commissioning groups in england are doing too little to encourage women to have smear tests. jo's cervical cancer trust says that, over the past five years, there has been a 3% drop in the number of women having the checks. the time new cars are allowed on britain's roads before they need an mot could go up from three to four years, under government proposals.
7:35 am
the department for transport said safer technology and improved manufacturing means new vehicles stay roadworthy for longer. the change, which could come in from 2018, would bring britain in line with northern ireland and many other european countries. it is in line with northern ireland and many other european countries. it is at in line with northern ireland and many other european countries. it is at 7:36 in line with northern ireland and many other european countries. it is at 7:36 a.m.. in line with northern ireland and many other european countries. it is at 7:36 a.m.. let's in line with northern ireland and many other european countries. it is at 7:36 a.m.. let's not in line with northern ireland and many other european countries. it is at 7:36 a.m.. let's not get in line with northern ireland and many other european countries. it is at 7:36 a.m.. let's not get that in line with northern ireland and many other european countries. it is at 7:36 a.m.. let's not get that wrong. in line with northern ireland and many other european countries. it is at 7:36 a.m.. let's not get that wrong. i in line with northern ireland and many other european countries. it is at 7:36 a.m.. let's not get that wrong. i am in line with northern ireland and many other european countries. it is at 7:36 a.m.. let's not get that wrong. i am distracted in line with northern ireland and many other european countries. it is at 7:36 a.m.. let's not get that wrong. i am distracted by the bad news for tennis fans.|j that wrong. i am distracted by the bad news for tennis fans. i was hoping to give you good news of a fightback by andy murray. andy murray is out. you could tell it was not going his way because he was starting to get a bit tetchy. he is often very good at coming back from those difficult situations. there are some rumours that he has a bit ofan ankle are some rumours that he has a bit of an ankle injury. he was certainly outplayed by zverev, who is ranked
7:36 am
50 in the world. so andy murray out of the australian open. he lost the opening set, took the second, but zverev refused to buckle, and won the third and fourth, to clinch the match 7—5 ,5-7 , 6-2 , 6-4. the world number one couldn't handle zverev‘s serve—and—volley tactics. he tried everything to show he is the world's best, but the world number 50 was just too good on the day, and andy murray will have to wait until next year for another crack at that elusive australian open title. britain's dan evans is also in action in melbourne. it is the first time he has made it to the fourth round of a grand slam. he is facing the 12th seed, jo—wilfried tsonga. evans took the first set on a tie—break, but was unable to keep up that intensity, as the frenchman controlled the second. at one set all, tsonga has a break in the third. wayne rooney has become manchester united's all—time leading goal—scorer. yesterday he hit his 250th goal for the club, an equaliser against stoke city, to surpass sir bobby charlton's record.
7:37 am
patrick gearey has been looking back at his manchester united career. a great honour, i am very proud. it is difficult at the minute to be over is difficult at the minute to be over pleased, because of the result, two points up. in the grand scheme of things it is a huge honourfor me and something i never expected when ijoined the and something i never expected when i joined the club. and something i never expected when ijoined the club. i am delighted, and really proud. premier league leaders chelsea will be happy with the results in the premier league yesterday. the teams chasing them gained little ground. liverpool suffered a shock defeat to swansea city, and manchester city and tottenham hotspur drew. ben croucher wraps up the day's action. saturday wasn't a good day to manage a top—six side. if you played, that is. along with manchester united, the other three in action couldn't muster a win between them.
7:38 am
liverpool are yet to win in the league in 2017. struggling swansea had never won in the league at anfield, but llorente put them 2—0 ahead. liverpool drew level, but couldn't hang on. it is going to come to sigurdsson. swansea back in front! and holding on for a 3—2 win, paul clements's first as swansea manager. the liverpool slip—up presented manchester city, and tottenham, the chance to move clear of them. city looked on—course, when two hugo lloris mistakes allowed them to go two goals up, only for spurs to then score with their only two shots on target. gabrieljesus thwarted one with his first shot in a city shirt. one slight problem. it is not easy being a football manager, is it? oh, look at the agony. if it is tough near the top, try being at the bottom. that is where david moyes's sunderland find themselves this
7:39 am
morning, after losing 2—0 at west brom. northern ireland's chris brunt scored the pick of the goals. if the moyes magic hasn't rubbed off on sunderland, sam's sorcery is lacking at crystal palace as well. allardyce is still without a premier league win at his new club. seamus coleman's late strike saw everton relegate palace into the bottom three. one man on the up right now is andy carroll. he followed up his wonder goal last weekend with two more in west ham's 3—1victory at middlesbrough. elsewhere, bournemouth came from behind twice to salvage a draw against watford, and you can see there confirmation of that draw between stoke city and manchester united. league leaders chelsea play hull city later, in one of three games. rangers came from behind to beat motherwell 2—1 and reach the fifth round of the scottish cup. rangers left it late, but kenny miller scored twice at ibrox, to ensure last season's beaten finalists are in the next round. there was no fairytale
7:40 am
for the minnows. bonnyrigg rose were thrashed by cup holders hibs. 8—1 it finished. highland league side formartine united lost 4—0 at partick thistle. the upset of the day was at dundee, who were beaten at home by championship strugglers st mirren, 2—0. a full rundown of results can be found on the bbc sport website. european champions cup holders saracens narrowly beat toulon 10—3, to top their pool and secure themselves a home quarter—final. in a low—scoring contest, chris ashton, who isjoining toulon at the end of the season, scored the game's only try at allianz park. the result of the day, though, came at welford road, where glasgow hammered leicester 43—0, to reach the quarter—finals for the first time in the club's history. elsewhere, exeter are out, after a heavy defeat at clermont auvergne. ronnie o'sullivan will face joe perry in the final of snooker‘s masters, at alexandra palace in north london this evening. o'sullivan had to recover from 4—3 in his semi—final with marco fu, and having to replace the tip of his cue. he won three frames in a row to seal a 6—4 win. ijust felt, like, all the way
7:41 am
through that match i felt, i thought, i can win this, but i have to play well, and i can't make many mistakes. and a little shot was missable. i thought it is up against me, but i can do this. when i did it i was so relieved, because now i have another day to get used to the tip. joe perry trailed barry hawkins 5—2 in their semi—final before an astonishing comeback. the game hinged on this snooker in the eighth frame. he then went on to win fourframes in a row. and will now try to stop o'sullivan winning a seventh masters title. in golf, england's tyrell hatton takes a one—shot lead into today's final round at the abu dhabi championship. he is 13—under—par, after a round of four—under—par 68 yesterday. but he is faced with an intimidating chasing pack, including us open champion dustin johnson and martin kaymer. england's tommy fleetwood is also
7:42 am
in that group at 12—under. english pair ross fisher and lee westwood are two shots further back. and the third one dayer between england and india gets under way at 8:00am. that is in kolkata. england have already lost the three—match series, having lost the first two. keeping an eye on dan evans. on our very small monitor that none of us can read the score. we need a telescope. 2— down in the third. one set all, a breakdown in that third set. a quick one on zverev, who beat andy murray, ranked 1067th two years ago, and he has come back, i am reading from one of our colleagues on5 reading from one of our colleagues on 5 live, a fractured priest, herniated disc and fractured ribs.
7:43 am
—— fractured wrist. herniated disc and fractured ribs. -- fractured wrist. hopefully dan evans -- fractured wrist. hopefully dan eva ns ca n -- fractured wrist. hopefully dan evans can pull this one out. thank you very much indeed. when it comes to rally driving, the general aim is to get round the course as quickly as possible. but for one world record holder, from britain, the biggest challenge could simply be getting to the start line. after her sponsors pulled out, louise cook was forced to put her trophies up for sale in order to fund her next race. frankie mccamley has been to meet her. louise has been competing professionally in rally driving for seven yea rs. professionally in rally driving for seven years. in 2012 she became a world record holder in the sport. when i first set foot in a rally car, obviously i found it amazing to just the controlling the car, and
7:44 am
insta ntly just the controlling the car, and instantly hooked, really. such an amazing feeling. but now, she may be forced to drop out of her latest competition, after her main sponsors delayed their plans. instead, she is trying to raise the money herself by putting her winning trophy up for sale. when i first listed it on ebay, to be honest all that day i felt sick. it just ebay, to be honest all that day i felt sick. itjust didn't ebay, to be honest all that day i felt sick. it just didn't feel right. but after a couple of days i kind of get used to the idea, and i just thought, well, i would rather that the trophy goes on the whole season go. of funding set up by supporters have raised enough to halt the option for now, but with nearly £20,000 left to find, the 29—year—old may still be forced to sell —— auction. 29—year—old may still be forced to sell -- auction. women face great challenge is finding sponsorship in their sports, than men. partly because of the perception of the sport, that sometimes it is
7:45 am
perceived that women's sport is less technical, less good, less valued than men sport, partly because of the lack of coverage for it. despite this, louise says she is not giving up. to her, crossing the finish line is her only option. here's nick with a look at this morning's weather. we have had beautiful sunshine in parts of the country. will they continue? not everyone will see that. we have low temperatures as their day begins at, as low as —8 in rural essex. it is in a very cold parts with hard frost in anglia and much of south—east england we will see sunshine. elsewhere the temperature hovers close to freezing. if there is a frost it is not hard. there may be fobbed but cloud around as well preventing temperatures from dropping. a cloud through parts of scotland today may just brushed the firies the north
7:46 am
island. more cloud through south—west england and wales into the midlands, producing a few light showers. solid rain but do not be surprised if you see snow. there is icy rain falling on frozen round. in east anglia in south—east england we have more sparkling sunshine to come. elsewhere a law harder to find compare to yesterday. sunshine at times in northern ireland, and initially in the northern scotland. much of scotland rather clouded this afternoon and could see a few flurries and patches of clutter and northern england, wales and south—west england. three to six degrees of the most but milder into the south—west england. for many of us the south—west england. for many of us that frost will return tonight and againa us that frost will return tonight and again a chance free hard frost. i say clear parts because you will get out the fog developing here and
7:47 am
especially across parts of england and wales going into tomorrow morning there could be dense and freezing fog patches around that could be causing some problems. not just on monday morning, on tuesday as well. not everybody will have it but where it is there could be some disruption so it is worth checking before you head out in the morning. some of this will be very slow to clear as well though some spots may hold onto it even into the afternoon. and if you do, the temperature may around freezing all day. the rest of us will see signs ofa day. the rest of us will see signs of a monday. a decent looking day with three to six celsius. a little higher in wales. unsettled in scotla nd higher in wales. unsettled in scotland and northern ireland by the end of the week ahead the england and wales are still looking fine and settled. we're back with the headlines at eight. but first it's time for the travel show. this week i will travel millions of years back in time underground in oman. starting to work up a bit of a sweat here. we're hitting the water
7:48 am
in new york city. first up, this week we're in new york. it's a frenzy of people and traffic, and everything here, from the skyscrapers to the food, is gigantic. but what most people don't know is that, if you're lucky, you might also be able to spot some of the biggest creatures on earth. joe worley has taken to the waters there to find out more. this is rockaway bay, it's a 40 minute cab ride from times square and one of thejumping off points for reaching the waters of the new york bite. speeding through the bay gives you a great view
7:49 am
of the city's skyline. but i'm interested in what's under the water — whales. in the past five years, there's been a surge in the number seen near the city. it's thought they've come here because the water quality has improved, which means there's more bait. but catching a glimpse of one can be tricky. seven different species have been spotted in these waters around new york, including the enormous blue whale. they say that today we're most likely to see a humpback whale. fingers crossed. this is the exact spot where we left the whale yesterday... artie is part of a network of whale trackers. manhattan has how many millions of people, and i talk to people all the time, they don't even know that there are humpback whales, like, literally 16 miles
7:50 am
from the empire state building. artie has taken some truly amazing photos that show just how close the whales come to the city. but his main focus is to get a clear shot of the bottom of the tail, called a fluke. that fluke is a fingerprint, and not one of them are the same. so there are some are black, white, speckled, we have a new york city catalogue of whales and i think this morning we are up to 51. my mission today is to try and get some shots to add to the catalogue. and what is your top tips for taking a photo of a whale? you've got to be ready, you just have to be ready, you have to have a camera up, have the settings right,
7:51 am
have everything perfect, so you're like this the whole day. oh, i really want to see one. you're going to see whales, it's going to be great. i'm excited for you. we're scouring the horizon for a puff of water called a whale blow. it's a rough, windy day, so it's hard to tell whether what i'm seeing is a whale orjust the break of a wave. but then... people are pointing that way? yeah. wow! there's a lot of excitement on the boat because someone has spotted a whale. come on. there's the dorsal. there it is. run overthere. catching a glimpse of a whale is so exciting. you were ready with that one.
7:52 am
there are two! did you see that one? but we still haven't managed to get that all—important fluke shot. now, that's the blow. hold on for a while. come on, baby. so, now you see he's going to show his fluke. oh, no. didn't show it. catch that tail. i love it. we don't see this stuff, we don't see this. this is great. laughter. whoo! this really is incredible, but it's so tricky to get a shot of the whale. the tail comes up just for a few seconds and then a moment later they're like 200 metres away. whoo—hoo! you are good. she is ready.
7:53 am
there's the blow. here's the fluke. that's nice. yeah, this is the shot. that's what you want. and that's the money shot. that is the shot right there. that says who this whale is. it's its identity, it's like a fingerprint. photos like this help researchers understand the whale's identity and its location, but it's a tiny part of the picture, as most of the action happens under the water. and to end this week, i am going back 2 million years
7:54 am
in time here in oman. i am visiting the country's famous caves, which have recently reopened to tourists. i am taking a two—hour drive from the capital, muscat, to oman's most famous mountain, jebel shams. the al hoota caves are a five—kilometre—long series of caverns and passages, formed over1 million years before the first humans appeared on earth. once you arrive at the foot of the mountain, you take a short tram ride through the blistering midday heat, and into the mouth of the cave system. so this stunning entrance is the opening to the al hoota caves. it is 2—3 million years old. it is just so beautiful, and i am in search of the famous blind pink fish, which you can only find here. the fish have survived undisturbed here beneath the earth, in total darkness, until one day about 100 years ago, when the caves were discovered, totally by accident.
7:55 am
discovered by a shepherd, when his goat fell down from the vent came down here. at that time he comes here, and discovers in the cave. that is an incredible story. his goat fell through this hole, and he suddenly discovered these caves. once inside, you can explore the caves by using the specially constructed walkways, and take yourjourney back in time. starting to work up a bit of a sweat here. despite oman being arid most of the year, the country is pockmarked with riverbeds, which can flood very quickly when it rains, and flash—flooding back in 2014 sent water gushing into the caves, submerging most of them, and closing the complex down to the rest. just over two years on, and the water has been pumped out, returning the caves to theirformer glory.
7:56 am
i could stare at these rocks for ages, and sometimes it feels like your mind is playing tricks on you. down there i saw what looked like a man's face, that had been carved out of the rocks. and you have got a lot of this opening is man—made, created, but some of this is natural. like that looks like a lion's head. i swear it looks like a lion's head. you can see its mane, a bit of its mouth over there. it is bizarre. as you venture deeper and deeper into the caves, the walkways get longer and the stairs gets steeper. look at that. but, after coming all this way, i am determined to see as much as i can, especially those pink blind fish that i'm told can only be found here. this is like being back at my mum and dads old councilflat. you've got to be pretty able to get around this cave. and there it is.
7:57 am
sadly, though, it doesn't look like i'm really cut out to be a caveman. it's like a proper training workout. look over there. it's just stairs, flights and flights of stairs. i think my cave—dwelling is over now. this is enough for me. such a shame, because this cave is starting to get so beautiful. while i caught my breath, the crew ventured further into the cave, and at last they discovered what we had all hoped to see. the rare, pink blind fish. coloured translucent pink, it is mind—blowing to think that they have been here for millions and millions of years, undiscovered, until the day that goat accidentally stumbled upon this massive cave system. at the moment you can only explore
7:58 am
about 10% of the al hoota caves, but it is hoped in the future more of its underground secrets will be revealed to the public. i love those caves. they were absolutely awesome. well, sadly that is it for this week. but coming up next week: henry is also heading underground, this time in cappadocia, in southern turkey, where a city thousands of years old is being unearthed. wow, look at that. don't forget, you can follow us on social media, and all the details are on the bottom of your screens right now. but for now, from me, ade adepitan, and all the travel show team here in oman, it is goodbye. hello, this is breakfast, with
7:59 am
rachel burden and rogerjohnson. theresa may will be the first world leader to meet president trump. hello, this is breakfast, with rachel burden and rogerjohnson. theresa may will be the first world leader to meet president trump. his spokesman confirms they'll meet on friday.
