1:35 pm
lam now i have to create my own team but i am excited about that, knowing we are working together to achieve the same goal, to make me a world champion and take women's boxing to the next level. britain'sjohanna konta has continued her dominant form in the australian open, reaching the quarterfinals. the world number nine beat russia's ekaterina makarova in straight sets — hannah lupton has the details. while some shrink in the melbourne heat, johanna konta shines. britain's lost out in a single straw was swiftly 3—0 up. ekaterina ma ka rova was swiftly 3—0 up. ekaterina makarova has bad memories of playing johanna konta. she lost 12 months
1:36 pm
ago. johanna konta has since claimed the rankings and has shown why she is in the world's top ten, racing through the first set with ease, 6-1. the through the first set with ease, 6—1. the second was not so easy, as the experienced ekaterina makarova found, and with that, a three—game advantage. johanna konta refused to be dictated to return to playing with purpose and precision. her ruthless efficiency helped back into the set. and provided a platform to secure the set. and provided a platform to secure her second australian open quarterfinal. this is where she will meet six time champion serena williams for the first time. it will be the first time on court against her and i am looking forward to competing against her, she is one of the, if not the best player, so i think to play against someone like that who you also grew up watching, it is another great opportunity for me to take a really great load of experience from. it won't be an easy experience for
1:37 pm
serena, with johanna konta it won't be an easy experience for serena, withjohanna konta in such sizzling form. one of britain's longest serving swimmers and olympic silver medallist keri—anne payne has called time on her illustrious career. payne — seen here in the red cap — finished eighth in the 10k swimming marathon at rio 2016. in a 13 year international career, payne finished second at the bejing olympics in 2008, and won world marathon titles in 2011 and 2013. that's all sport for now. you can find more on all those stories on the bbc sport website. i'll have more in the next hour. jessica, thank you very much. you're watching bbc news. the welsh first minister, carwynjones, has called for britain to retain "full and unfettered access" to the european single market after brexit. his labour party has joined
1:38 pm
forces with plaid cymru and the welsh liberal democrats to publish proposals to restrict freedom of movement to those eu migrants who already have a job offer in the uk. theresa may has said that britain will leave the single market. our correspondent is in cardiff. how optimistic that they are about something that looks difficult to achieve, on the face of it? very difficult, i think that carwynjones has always said from the word go on brexit that they wanted to stay in the single market because it was so important in his view for the businesses in wales, so this morning when he laid out those plans, the blueprint with leanne wood, plaid cymru litre, what they wanted to see was similar to what norway has with the eu, a deal, an agreement similar to the single market and on immigration they have a deal where they are allowed, migrants are allowed to come into the uk if they
1:39 pm
have secured a job. that is in stark contrast to what theresa may said last week in her speech, where she said we would leave the single market to retain control of immigration. scotland have already published a paper on the blueprint for how they feel brexit should be affecting scotland and the uk and today, carwynjones and plaid cymru have decided to release theirs. they have decided to release theirs. they have a conference of plan, a 150 page document, looking to find the softest brexit possible, to aid those in england and wales. what to conservatives say about this? they said it was slightly muddled, the announcement today and have questioned why there was a delay, as scotla nd questioned why there was a delay, as scotland has already published their blueprint. it is a more comprehensive and fulsome look into brexit but also looking forward, it
1:40 pm
is not a fight against brexit, according to carwyn jones, is not a fight against brexit, according to carwynjones, these proposals on what he feels and the welsh government feels is the best thing for not only wales but for the uk when they come to talks on brexit. in terms of brexit and what the welsh government is saying about this, in terms of a united uk, at what point are they saying they need to make a decision and either decide to make a decision and either decide to back theresa may or not? well, i think some of the things in this detailed plan today are things that have not come as any surprise to anyone following the rhetoric of ca rwyn anyone following the rhetoric of carwyn jones anyone following the rhetoric of carwynjones on anyone following the rhetoric of carwyn jones on brexit anyone following the rhetoric of carwynjones on brexit over the last few months. the biggest thing has been the single market but also, when it comes to funding, making sure wales has some sort of similar funding that it has been receiving from the eu over the last number of
1:41 pm
yea rs, from the eu over the last number of years, as wales is a huge beneficiary of eu funding as we are such a poor country. but yes, of course, when it comes to discussions, carwynjones has always said he wants a place of the table to discuss them, he wants a vote here to make sure that the ams will be able to vote and make sure they are happy with proposals. he strongly feels and has always advocated that staying in the single market is the biggest thing for him. will he be able to have any say on what sort of trade deal? that remains to be seen as talks continue in westminster. thank you. government scientists are warning that overcooked toasts, potatoes, and crisps could increase the risk of developing cancer. the food standards agency says a chemical called acrylamide, is produced when starchy foods are roasted, fried or grilled for too long at high temperatures. they say we should aim for a golden yellow colour when we're cooking. with me is the award—winning italian chef and restaurateur aldo zilli. and in our birmingham newsroom is dr simon cotton —
1:42 pm
a chemistry academic from the university of birmingham. firstly, what can you tell me about this particular product and why it raises concerns? good afternoon. it has been known for over 20 years that high levels of acrylamide can produce cancer in animals. but these are much higher levels than one would get in a normal diet, you're talking about 1000—10,000 times higher in the tests they conducted. what does that mean when we are talking about a slice of toast? what does that mean when we are talking about a slice of toast7m means, realistically, that you should be quite safe if you are a regular toast eater, if you just haveit regular toast eater, if you just have it cooked golden yellow rather than burnt. a lot of people like
1:43 pm
their toast on the darker side. have you heard of this before? no! i think it's a bit one too many but anyway, if there is a problem, it needs to be addressed. but i am a food consultant, chef, restaurant, you know, we have in my restaurant group, 19 restaurants and we tell out group, 19 restaurants and we tell our chefs to do everything in order not to burden, obviously, we're not going to burn food or toast. but at the same time, if breakfast is served with toast that is undercooked, people send it back. so, you have some toast in front of you heard... that looks like bread. that is bread, not toast. this is what you should be eating, in my view. and then people send it back
1:44 pm
and they ask for this. you know, they want that colour. it looks all right. it does but this is cooked over the odds. most people like that. obviously this one is burned, fio that. obviously this one is burned, no one is going to like that. but even with potatoes and different oils, do different things to food. you wouldn't necessarily fry with extra virgin olive oil because it is bad for us. you normally use itjust to finish things off. baby food, crisps, of course, crisps are bad for us, if you eat too many. fried food is bad. but over fried has got to be worse. if it is bad, we need to be worse. if it is bad, we need to address it and everybody needs to pay attention. i suspect you speak for a lot of people. that is there any evidence, simon, that anyone has developed cancer as a result of eating overcooked food, crisps that
1:45 pm
have been cooked for too long? 0k, as far as have been cooked for too long? 0k, as farasi have been cooked for too long? 0k, as far as i know, there is no evidence that anyone has developed cancer. this is obviously quite recent news. people have been eating food cooked in this way for thousands of years. acrylamide has a lwa ys thousands of years. acrylamide has always been formed. what scientists found out when they studied how the temperature of cooking affected acrylamide levels, was they found out that gains of 100—120 degrees made virtually no difference in the amount formed, it was only when you got above 120 that the level was noticeable. and certainly above 150, it rose steeply. very briefly, does this apply to vegetables? some people like those well cooked. no, as far as people like those well cooked. no, as farasi people like those well cooked. no, as far as i know, it's
1:46 pm
people like those well cooked. no, as far as i know, its associated with carbohydrate rich foods. so, that means vegetables are much safer. the advice is, if you are cooking, cook at low temperature, boiled foods are safe because you will not get that hot. there is a question of balance, obviously, if you cook food at too low a temperature you may not kill off possibly harmful bacteria. and again, it'sa possibly harmful bacteria. and again, it's a question of how often you need this food. do you have a sensible diet? do you eat the same stuff all the time? the same carbonised stakes or food like that? i want to put this to our other guests. a lot of people say it is a british thing to have food well cooked. especially stakes. the very often get things like phillips take or venison steak sent back because it is too raw or there is blood coming out and they wanted burned on
1:47 pm
the outside. how do you balance between offering what you think people might like them what you think might not be good for them?|j think might not be good for them?” think this will change the way people ask for food and they will probably open their eyes that when they receive roasted parsnips, they should look golden and potatoes and sweet potatoes, especially, you know, they should look not burned on the outside, like some restaurants do, your christmas lunch, it's going to be, you know, how many of us have overcooked a christmas lunch, if you like? but overcooked a christmas lunch, if you like ? but nobody overcooked a christmas lunch, if you like? but nobody likes... when did you last over anything? most times! sometimes it's a mistake, you can forget. lee byrne toast regularly in
1:48 pm
out forget. lee byrne toast regularly in our restaurant. and then the smoke comes out and you remember. that's a lwa ys comes out and you remember. that's always the same. how do you like your toast, simon? hello always the same. how do you like yourtoast, simon? hello mike always the same. how do you like your toast, simon? hello mike you will be surprised to hear i like it golden yellow. very good of you to join us. thank you for your time. you're watching bbc news. in a moment, a summary of the business news this hour. first, the headlines on bbc news: there'll be an urgent question in parliament, on the trident nuclear deterrent, this afternoon. mps want to establish how much the prime minister knew about the reported misfiring of a missile during a test. an independent report finds that staff failed to protect a man who took his own life in prison — despite him being seriously mentally ill and knowing there was a risk he would kill himself. the government launches its vision for the future of british industry — designed to boost the economy after brexit. in the business news...
1:49 pm
as you've been hearing, the prime minister will set out her vision for britain's industrial future today. theresa may's plans will set out how the government can help businesses through trade deals, extra skills, regulatory change, and fresh funding. britain is set for slow growth over the next three years the ernst young item club, a respected forecasting group, says the weak pound means consumer spending will fall which will translate to a slower growing economy. however they expect exports to rise. and the korean electronics giant samsung has released the results of its investigation into its flagship galaxy note 7 smartphones. the phones were recalled last year because some overheated and caught fire. the company confirmed problems with the design saying the manufacturing of batteries was to blame — not the actual phones. us president donald trump has said that he plans to begin "renegotiating" the north american free trade agreement with his canadian and mexican counterparts. meetings have been scheduled
1:50 pm
with canadian prime ministerjustin trudeau and mexican president enrique pena nieto for the end ofjanuary according to the white house. the nafta agreement came into effect in 1994 but mr trump has called it the worst trade deal the us has ever signed. we are also meeting with the prime minister of canada and we will meet with the president of mexico, and i know, and we will start negotiations having to do with nafta. anybody ever heard of nafta? they ran a campaign somewhat based on nafta but we are going to start negotiating on nafta and immigration and security at the border. and mexico has been
1:51 pm
terrific, actually, terrific. joining us now from the floor of the new york stock exchange is our business correspondent michelle fleury. michelle li, what can he do to change nafta ? michelle li, what can he do to change nafta? or can they change it at all, to do what he wants to achieve, help americans and get a better deal out of the agreement?” was asking various trade experts about this. donald trump could certainly repeal nafta if he wanted to. but it is possible he could rip up to. but it is possible he could rip up the agreement altogether. it sounds like that is not, at least in the first instance, what he hopes to do. the talk is that he is planning to set up meetings with the leaders of canada and mexico. those are the three countries, canada usa and mexico involved in the agreement. it relates to the movement of goods without tariffs. he wants to meet
1:52 pm
without tariffs. he wants to meet with them and discuss the negotiating that agreement. if they can come up negotiating that agreement. if they can come up with something, then presumably nafta in a new form will continue. if not, he has said in the past, he would repeal it. he has spokenin past, he would repeal it. he has spoken in the past about the car industry, perhaps one area where he may push but it is hard to know the specifics. we're talking about many industries affected, you have to get the trade negotiators around a table to hammer out a deal, so it is hard to hammer out a deal, so it is hard to speculate as to what any deal might look like. how much impact has nafta on the us economy? there are studies that show the impact is not huge... well, there was a recent study that showed it had been beneficial to the us economy that people are beginning to recognise, what the selection has violated, is that while the country, broadly speaking, has benefited, jobs have been created in the usa, it has not
1:53 pm
been created in the usa, it has not been equalled. industries adversely affected by the deal have not necessarily recovered. those geographical pockets. that's where you saw donald trump's message really resonate, industrial areas perhaps in decline, who feel left behind by globalisation. if you go south, you can talk about textile mills, once booming, but no longer there. in the north, the steel industry, no longer what it was. those are the areas where trump's economic message has played very well. which is one in which he said clearly that he would re—negotiate trade deals and put america first, a message he repeated at his inauguration and now, as you can see, in his first week, he's making ita see, in his first week, he's making it a priority. he has convinced car—makers to relocate factories to america. how i mexico and canada feeling about this? mexico at the moment has problems with the oil
1:54 pm
industry, the economy, so this comes ata industry, the economy, so this comes at a delicate time. that being said, we are now hearing, certainly in the case of canada, they are talking about being open to be negotiating aspects of nafta. perhaps they would like to see some improvements. it really depends on what the shape of this becomes, and we're talking about nafta, we're expecting donald trump also efficiently kill tpp, the trans—pacific partnership, a deal with asia. that was something again he promised on the campaign trail. he is expected to make that of the show. thank you. here's a look at some other stories we're following today. donald trump's surprise win in the us presidential election cost paddy power betfair nearly £5m. the bookmaker has also said that it also lost money on football bets in december. paddy power betfair said it expected the total impact of "customer friendly" results in the final three months of last year to be about £40m.
1:55 pm
foxconn, the taiwanese company, who put the iphone together says its considering a $7bn investment in a new factory — in the united states. chief executive terry gou says it could create as many as 50,000 jobs he added that at the moment "it is a wish" rather than a promise. currently, most of foxconn‘s manufacturing facilities are in china so it would be a big change of direction for the company. and the guardian is reporting that the chairman of sainsbury‘s david tyler has been reprimanded after using the company's staff and suppliers to help revamp his country home. tyler, who has been chairman of sainsbury‘s since 2009, was given a warning letter by the company's board but no further action was taken. a quick look at markets. uk shares fell this morning as the pound gained strength against the dollar following donald trump's inauguration speech. concern over mr trump's protectionist comments hit the us currency. that's all the business news.
1:56 pm
thank you. time for a look at the weather. one thing that unifies the country is that it is cold. weather differences are huge, however. some fog lingering around sussex. that fog lingering around sussex. that fog lingers here as well and further north in midlothian, some sparkling sunshine. a beautiful picture sent in here. a variety of weather but what will happen today is this area of cloud across the midlands will sink into south—east england and will help lift the fog. it will stain mystique toward south—east
1:57 pm
england. south—west england in southern wales, bright sunshine here. some light showers. northern ireland, sunshine across the east. belfast, 8 degrees. scotland doing pretty well for sunshine. overnight, mist and fog returns across england and wales but the breeze picks up for the north—west of the uk. cloudy skies for northern ireland and scotland, with patchy rain. another cold one for england and wales. every bit as cold as last night, with the lowest temperatures plummeting to minus six degrees. once again, fog will feature in the morning forecast. we could see further transport disruption. the worst of the fog is in central and southern england. maybe eastern areas of wales. they could be slow
1:58 pm
to clear. away from those fog banks, bright weather with sunshine across england and wales. further north and west, cloudy for scotland and northern ireland. atlantic winds bring in milderair. changes northern ireland. atlantic winds bring in milder air. changes towards the middle part of the week as the isobars tend to crunch together, indicating a windier spell of weather. brisk southerly winds will eventually clear all of the fog away. quite windy at times but southerly winds will also bring relatively mild air. for most of us, looking at temperatures in double figures. you can fine out more on the bbc weather website. this is bbc news — and these are the headlines. an investigation uncovers a catalogue of failures that contributed to the death of dean saunders — who should have been
