something about it. the exhaustion was getting difficult to deal with. it got to the stage i wanted to kill myself. looking back now, i can't believe it got that bad. but at the time, iwas believe it got that bad. but at the time, i was wondering what the point of going on was with such a terrible life. it happens when muscles in the throat relax and block airwaves. sufferers consistently wake up during the night. it is linked to obesity and heart and brain problems. last year there were 140,000 plus diagnoses last year. problems. last year there were 140,000 plus diagnoses last yearlj will ask you to hold it in place. 1.5 million of us in the uk are believed to have sleep apnea, though 80% of us have no formal diagnosis. to establish if someone has the
6:13 am
condition, patients are monitored during their sleep. when it is red, you are still breathing. in this ten minute window you can see how many times it is happening. doctors say treating those with the condition will make everyone‘s overall more healthy and will save the nhs millions of pounds. —— everyone. we will get the weather soon. i think she may give us a 34. don't give it away! 34! wait for it! i may have stolen carol‘s thunder! away! 34! wait for it! i may have stolen carol's thunder! she may have some of that as well. andy murray. he plays today, hopefully in glorious sunshine in the queen‘s

6:20 am
yesterday‘s attack. ‘a violent manifestation‘ of islamaphobia — that‘s how the muslim council of britain described yesterdays attack on worshippers at finsbury park. it comes after an increase in recorded anti—muslim hate crime over the past few months. yesterday the communities secretary, sajid javid, was seen comforting a muslim mother as she told him she no longer feels safe and fears for her son. the bbc‘s nomia iqbal has met with women in manchester who told her about their concerns. at this community centre in longside, women of all backgrounds come together to talk. islam always spread the light. there are mainly muslim women here and in the last few months, one thing has dominated conversation. we need more security. people wearing to hijab have been attacked, they pulled their hijab. have you changed your daily life
6:21 am
know people who have? people are more wary now. kettle of opening the door and went go out at certain times of night. —— careful. make sure your children are with you at all times and they aren‘t allowed to go anywhere unless you accompany them. there are so many messages going on social media and everybody is telling them what has happened and to be wary. the muslim side are terrorists but the extreme right at just people that are angry and annoyed. no, you are both terrorist. if non— muslims canjustify annoyed. no, you are both terrorist. if non— muslims can justify what they are doing, why do i have to sit and justify what these extremists, whatever you want to call them, are doing. since manchester, we have seen doing. since manchester, we have seen women doing. since manchester, we have seen women absolutely scared of going out on their own. they are worried, they don‘t know what is going to happen, who is going to attack them and they actually do fear going out. do you think the attacker from the finsbury mosque was bound to happen?”
6:22 am
attacker from the finsbury mosque was bound to happen? i think inevitable. every day, we live in fear. as manchester marks the month since the attack in manchester, i have come to meet these women who have come to meet these women who have called for women to have a bigger role in tackling extremism. lets not pretend this is about one community. there is a rise in violent behaviour in our committees across the globe and of course we see it in the uk. we need to not tolerate that. as a society that believes in equality for all and has values, that we all agree to and have fought for, we will fight for those values based on us being human beings and british citizens. anything like this attack in finsbury park, it is heinous and a motions are going to be at their most extreme but also there were people that will use it to their own political ends. we have seen that on social media west people have been promoting one at gender. if you look at the commonality, most people are
6:23 am
just horrified. —— agenda. most people want to try and help create better generations with something like this would happen. —— won‘t happen. last night, as the jewel was held and hundreds of people from all faiths gathered to pay their respects and show their support for the community. i‘m joined now by talha ahmad from the muslim council of britain what have people been saying to you yesterday? it showed how everybody turned out, people from all backgrounds. it shows the strength of character of this community. having said that, there was a degree
6:24 am
of uncertainty. that anybody can just take a van. what is the answer? increased security or police presence outside places of worship? it won‘t be normal to see lisa standing outside every mosque. —— police. increased security in the area would be helpful. ramadan still has a few days to go and often when people are leaving in night they could be concerned that something like this will happen. so there is increased concern that people are targets now? islamaphobia is on the rise. there were other attacks, not of this kind, of course. what happened nobody thought somebody would take a van and drive on them. it take the concern to end new level. —— to a new level. what about
6:25 am
a mosque that could be felt —— be vulnerable. anybody can walk into a mosque when it is open, muslims or otherwise. it is quite frightening. siddique khan, the man of london, said that he will vow that communities will stand together. said that he will vow that communities will stand togetherlj went to a number of skin in west london yesterday and people were just looking past and leaving flowers, random people. —— another mosque. this support for local communities have been important. it makes you feel quite reassured.

reduce heart disease and heart attacks. 0k. now they have discovered they may possibly have a vaccine. how significant is it? so, iam sure vaccine. how significant is it? so, i am sure your vaccine. how significant is it? so, iam sure yourview vaccine. how significant is it? so, i am sure your view was know that statins are the most commonly used drugs to reduce cholesterol. they need to be taken on a daily basis. so compliance is an important issue. this vaccine, you know, you have it given to you, and it mixes with your blood to stop the liver from taking up blood to stop the liver from taking up cholesterol. you can get a booster every year to have a permanent reduction in cholesterol levels. it is important and may provide a more patient friendly medicine. most people do not take them, necessarily, and that is the problem? yes. if people have tablets
6:42 am
for things, and you have to do it on a long—term basis, managing cholesterol to reduce heart attack risk, it is important there is compliance, and not taking medicine is an issue. how soon could this be available, do you think? the studies reported by the nhs now, the findings, show that in models, given this vaccine and how it reduces cholesterol, it reduces the flaring up cholesterol, it reduces the flaring up of the heart, it is an important step in this approach. chemical trials will be started to see if the vaccine works in human beings and lowers the level of cholesterol in the blood first. it will take a little bit longer, of course, to then demonstrate its safety and efficacy. it will take some time, several years. what about the causes of cholesterol? are they
6:43 am
misunderstood by the public? some could think it is because of being overweight, inactive? it is notjust that. that is important. people think that cholesterol comes from the diet. that is not the case that the diet. that is not the case that the body makes cholesterol, the liver makes cholesterol. it is partly because of genes inherited. some could assume that elevated cholesterol is only due to lifestyle. that is why it we need treatments for lowering cholesterol and why it is so important. thank you so much for your time this morning on breakfast. it is approaching quarter to seven. many people are saying how hot it was last night. some were saying they we re last night. some were saying they were too hot this morning. i agree. i genuinely considered sleeping in the shower. it was ridiculously hot. the weather forecast. carol is at
6:44 am
the queen‘s championship. the weather forecast. carol is at the queen's championship. good morning. it will get hotter before it gets cooler for morning. it will get hotter before it gets coolerfor some morning. it will get hotter before it gets cooler for some of us. not all of us. i am on court seven, the practice court. andy murray has been practising since last tuesday. he has this first match this afternoon. he is third on. it is the first time a number one world seed has played since 2010. this morning, if you are coming down to queen‘s, bring something cool with you. as you can see on the charts, the temperature will hit 32 possibly. tomorrow, we could have 34. then it cools off a little bit on thursday. a weather front goes through. a little bit more cloud. lovely and sunny with light wind. if you are going anywhere today, the advice is cover yourself up with the usual precautions, hats, sunscreen,
6:45 am
fluids. it will be hot for many parts of the uk. for some, it will be cooler. yesterday i was telling you about hull and lincoln. not as warm as yesterday, but pleasant. 0n the charts, you can see them as cloud in the east of england generally. that is holding the temperatures down as well as the onshore breeze. for the rest of the uk, a lot of sunshine around. we have some fog patches. they will not last long in the sunshine. temperatures will continue to climb. 20 in london and cardiff. that is likely to be the maximum temperature in glasgow this afternoon. more fresh year. south, still areas of cloud in eastern parts of england. breaking up. heading down towards the midlands, east anglia, the south, lose guys. as we go south—west, again, a hot day. ——
6:46 am
blue skies. most people be in the end south today. that is like north devon and north cornwall. 31. unusual. wales, a lot of hot sunshine. northern ireland, sunshine today as well. it will be a bit fresher. the other thing that will happen is with the heat, showers. some of those could be intense thunderstorms. through east wales, south—west midlands, the south—west as well. but you may see nothing at all. it is that finely balanced. through the evening and overnight, for most, a dry night. areas of cloud again. quite a sultry night once again in the south. dan will find himself in the shower once again. the north, more fresh. that leads us to tomorrow. showery thunderstorms in the north. through the day, they will travel steadily eastwards. we will also pump up more
6:47 am
hotair eastwards. we will also pump up more hot airfrom the eastwards. we will also pump up more hot air from the near continent. that will travel further north in northern england. but it is tomorrow that we could well see the highs of 34 somewhere in the south. that will spark a lot of thunderstorms, intense thunderstorms, wednesday night into thursday morning. it will clear on thursday morning, leaving us clear on thursday morning, leaving us with a fresh feel to the day. a lot of sunshine around. we still have high temperatures. 28— 29. a lot of events taking place this week. glastonbury, hot on wednesday. very hot. severe thunderstorms. and then as we head through the weekend, it will be fresh with some showers. it will be hot today, more hot tomorrow, a little bit more fresh on thursday for ladies day, and then some showers on the weekend. thank you. and they haven‘t planned your colour
6:48 am
co—ordination today, carol, but it really works. the chancellor of the exchequer philip hammond will this morning tell a gathering of business and city leaders how he plans to steer the uk economy through the uncertainty that lies ahead. steph is live for us at the mansion house in the heart of the city of london where the event is taking place. good morning. we have magnificent sunshinejust rising good morning. we have magnificent sunshine just rising behind. good morning. we have magnificent sunshinejust rising behind. an important place to decide what goes on. we will be hearing today from the chancellor philip hammond and also the governor of the bank of england. we are battling with the sunshine. we have bronwyn here, an economist. give us a flavour of what
6:49 am
we are expecting today. he always talks about the economy but of course, the economy is now all tied up course, the economy is now all tied up with brexit and those negotiations. it will be interesting to see what he says about perhaps a softer transition because that will be hard to do because in the end, it is out of the customs union and out of the single market. the other thing is, the economy, lots of talk about the end of austerity. people are fed up with it. is he going to say anything about that? he has ruled out a budget for the sum us that it will be in november. it is really ha rd to that it will be in november. it is really hard to end austerity. —— for the summer. raising taxes will be difficult because by next year, it will be at the highest level it has been and government has made that ha rd to been and government has made that
6:50 am
hard to sustain. it will be interesting because brexit will have an effect on the economy. whether you think it is a soft or hard brexit, growth will be lower and so the tax take is lower. put up taxes or cut spending at bit more. of course, we then have ageing and over the next few years, spending will go up the next few years, spending will go up anyway. spending on health, social care, pensions. it is not a great outlook, to be honest, to be going and trying to end austerity. there isn‘t much wriggle room. ali, you speak with lots of businesses. they still have to carry on under all this uncertainty. the hope is they will carry us through the sundberg —— uncertainty. they will carry us through the sundberg -- uncertainty. the prime minister talked about sharing the austerity but business is generating those jobs. they want to hear, specifically around brexit, there isn't much wriggle room with us
6:51 am
leaving the single market and the customs union. we need to focus on the smooth, orderly transition. we don't want to hear the talk of knowing there is the implicit threat of walking away without a deal. we need to focus on what can be done to keep witnesses here. confidence messages, whether it is dissolving the rights of citizens over seas and eu citizens here. we want to hear a conversation. will be finding out exactly what is in those speeches. they will be happening from around 830 this morning and we will be covering it all on breakfast. more from me and little later. he is quite literally one of a kind — a globe—trotter with legions of fans and a permanent staff of publicists, pamperers and armed bodyguards. but sudan is not a hollywood star or a music icon. he‘s the very last male northern white rhino in the world.
6:52 am
this is him in central kenya. this is live. rowan deacon has made a film about the 43—year—old‘s incredible life story and the efforts to save his sub—species from extinction. we might see his keeper. it gives you a sense of the immense gain a love this animal as well. tell us about him. i first heard a bout sudan when his friend died so he
6:53 am
became the last. it was such a poignant statement that there could be this final animal and decided it would be possible to make a film about his life story. tell us a bit about his life story. tell us a bit about this. his stories incredible in terms of where he started out, where he has travelled and where he now. he gets a bit of attention for becoming the last male white rhino. he was born 43 years ago, wild born. he was born 43 years ago, wild born. he was born 43 years ago, wild born. he was caught by animal catchers in the 1970s and then sent to a zoo in the 1970s and then sent to a zoo in the former czechoslovakia. he had lived this extraordinary life which was much bigger than we had imagined and his life story had coincided with the annihilation of his family and the rest of his species. his life charts how extension happens,
6:54 am
ina life charts how extension happens, in a way. we hear a lot about extension but sudan gives up a tangible sense of how it can get to this point quite quickly. we know that scientists have tried their best to make sure they won‘t be the last —— he won‘t be the last. but it hasn‘t worked, has it? last —— he won‘t be the last. but it hasn't worked, has it? there is an ambitious ivf plan because there are two females that live alongside sudan. the plan is to try and she harvest eggs from them and to use sperm from sudan and some other white rhino is burned that has been frozen to try and create a new generation. we followed the process in the film thinking we would get success but so far there hasn‘t been. we don't want to give away the end of the film but are you hoping there will be a happy ending? is it scientifically possible? it is possible. we followed the scientists over a year and they were very confident they would get a rhino
6:55 am
embryo. that‘s what they are looking for, a northern white rhino embryo. so far, it hasn‘t succeeded but they will try again this summer. so far, it hasn‘t succeeded but they will try again this summerlj so far, it hasn‘t succeeded but they will try again this summer. i cannot ta ke will try again this summer. i cannot take my eyes off him. he is one of the most extraordinary, beautiful animals. clearly immense power but very friendly. would that be a fair asset? yell at of course, because he has been in captivity all of his life. —— has been in captivity all of his life. -- -- has been in captivity all of his life. —— —— of course. has been in captivity all of his life. -- -- of course. he is an enormous east. he is incredibly used to humans so you can pat and stroke in. —— beast. when i saw him in november, he wasn‘t quite as active as that. he is on his last legs, i think. rhino is only live to about 40 yea rs think. rhino is only live to about 40 years old. he is older than that already. he is pushing it but he is very well looked after. you will come back and speak to us a bit later that let me ask you, how far
6:56 am
are you? how are you going with this heat? eight months with twins. 0h, my gosh! the documentary is called sudan: the last of the rhinos and it is on bbc two next wednesday. at 9pm. people are complaining that they are too warm but you cannot complain if you are not eight—month pregnant with twins. if i could watch sudan all day, i would with twins. if i could watch sudan all day, iwould be with twins. if i could watch sudan all day, i would be happy. still to come this morning: it‘s estimated that 1.5 million of us suffer from something called sleep apnoea — and most don‘t even realise they‘ve got it. we‘ll speak to one woman who only sought help when her sister told her she stopped breathing for a full 45 seconds. time now to get the news, travel and weather where you are. good morning, i‘m asad ahmad.

7:03 am

7:09 am
weather. carol is at queen‘s this morning and is talking about high temperatures over the next couple of days. yesterday morning‘s attack on worshippers making their way home from evening prayers was the latest in a string of incidents reflecting a worrying rise in far—right extremism. according to the mayor of london, there were more than 2,000 islamophobic hate crime incidents reported to the police in the 12 months leading up to january. this figure has been steadily rising for a decade. the rise mirrors a jump in the number of referrals to the government‘s prevent programme. the number of far—right referrals in england and wales increased by 74%, from 323 cases in 2015 to more than 550 last year. however, islamic extremism remains far and away the most common referral, with nearly 3,000 cases last year, that‘s 70% of the prevent workload. diane abbott, the shadow home secretary, joins us from our london newsroom now. good morning. thanks forjoining us
7:10 am
on the programme this morning. can we start by asking you how would your response and the response of labour be different? your response and the response of labour be diffe re nt?|j your response and the response of labour be different? i was at the mosque yesterday and i know the area very well. it is a diverse but unified area and i know that. we had to think this morning about how traumatised that community is and how traumatised people up and down the country are. our response would be to emphasise that the prevent programme needs to be as much about far right extremism as about islamic extremism. there has been a sense in the muslim community in the past that prevent and the counterterrorism strategy generally was targeted on them. but we are seeing this rise in far right extremism. it is about one years
7:11 am
since the murder of my colleague, my late colleague, jo cox, by a far right extremist. we do have to take theseissues right extremist. we do have to take these issues more seriously. we also have to give a lead in terms of the tone of the debate around islam...” get the point you are making about far right extremism. but as we mentioned in the introduction to speak to you this morning, 70% of all of those cases by prevent are by islamic terrorism. don‘t we need context? yet to be part of the context? yet to be part of the context is far right extremism is an issue. if we are going to build the confidence of the moors community in the prevent programme, we have to be seen the prevent programme, we have to be seen to be recognising that. —— the muslim community. how would you change the strategy and prevent far right extremism? it is more challenging to deal with far right sheamus is that even islamic
7:12 am
extremism because... —— extremism. why is that? you don't have the community to deal with. the focus needs to be on the internet and on line radicalisation. i agree with what the government is doing trying to work on the internet, we need to focus on that. we also need to focus on the tone of the debate around islam. what does that mean? how do you tackle far right extremism simply by using those major internet companies? what actual practical measures to you take to stop what you saw happening yesterday? stepping up monitoring about what is happening on line. encouraging big companies to take down some of these sites and discourses helping to radicalise people. in some cases, they are reluctant to do that. but we don‘t want to facilitate extremism of any kind. we think they
7:13 am
can do more to take down sites and dialogue and to take people off their systems who it can be seen are propagating hate and hate crime. with respect, that is exactly what the current government strategy is. again, what specific measures would you do? you brought up the point of the sort of internet monitoring. how far down that line do you go to stop far down that line do you go to stop far right extremism? obviously, there has to be a balance between freedom of speech and fighting extremism. but we need to look at that balance. i think intervening on line will be the most effective way to deal with far right extremism. and we need to see what more can be done. we need to encourage the big four companies to work with us. because why should people during ramadan going to and from their mosque be living in fear? i believe that the focus of the prevent
7:14 am
programme needs to be rebalanced to recognise what an increasing problem far right extremism is. this is the first time we have seen you back on our tv screens, diane, since the election. the most important question is how why you feeling right now? a lot better. i am a type ii diabetic. i was not managing it, but now it is manageable. it took my brother to ring me up and tell me off and get me to get better with glucose tablets. i would urge your viewers, because i have type 2 diabetes, later on in life, gets tested. ok. that is a good and positive message. you are fully criticised and people said that that is because you are black and because you are a woman. did it come into that?”
7:15 am
black and because you are a woman. did it come into that? i think politicians complaining about media is like sailors complaining about the weather. i wasn‘t well for some pa rt the weather. i wasn‘t well for some part of the campaign and i‘m a lot better now and looking forward to working with the ledger shadow cabinet team to bring accountability and to bring the right policy message forward —— labour.” and to bring the right policy message forward -- labour. i know you said some of the criticism was fair such as the numerical mistakes you made in the abc interview. was that related to the ill—health or was that stress of the campaign?” don‘t want to talk about my help other than urging people to get tested —— health. what i will say is my type 2 diabetes was an issue at certain points that i have moved
7:16 am
beyond that, i have taken all my brother‘s good advice and theyjust wa nt to brother‘s good advice and theyjust want to say, in particular, i want to thank the thousands of people who contacted me with messages of support and concern and flowers. i wa nt to support and concern and flowers. i want to say thank you to all of those people. we all need a family member looking out for us. he said it affected you in some ways. did you ever consider and have you ever considered resigning from your post because of your ill—health? jetta it was never a consideration. every body knows who has type 2 diabetes knows it is a perfectly manageable condition. —— it was never a consideration. i am asking you this because there could be a time down the line when you could be shadow secretary if labour ever get into power. if you are in that situation
7:17 am
is one of the most stressfuljobs in the country. just wasn't an issue, my blood sugar was. i‘m back to fighting thickness and i‘m back to representing the people. —— fitness. above all, i am back to representing the labour party. good to talk to you, thank you for answering all of those questions so honestly. carol is so perfectly matched to the queen ‘s club, it‘s amazing. it looks so lovely there this morning, carol. here‘s carol with a look at this morning‘s weather. the ground staff are removing the cove rs. the ground staff are removing the covers. look how pristine it is and look how quickly and efficiently they are doing it, too. it is described by the players as the best grass in the world because it does
7:18 am

7:19 am

7:39 am
mark carney, literallyjust walked past us adding into mansion house. you can see the bank of england lit up you can see the bank of england lit up by you can see the bank of england lit up bya you can see the bank of england lit up by a sunrise. it is a gorgeous day. mark carney will also speak at the event. he will deliver his speech on the state of the economy. we will also hear from the chancellor, the payment, on his views about things like brexit, austerity, and other stuff like that. —— philip hammond. we will get some thoughts on it by bronwen, an economist. there is not much wriggle room. what will we hear? he will try to be as upbeat as possible, which will be difficult. we are looking at slobber growth going forward. what mark carney says about higher inflation, wages being squeezed, people not buying as much as they we re people not buying as much as they were before, it is all important.
7:40 am
and then brexit. what does he say about that? he mentioned a softer transitionjust about that? he mentioned a softer transition just recently. but about that? he mentioned a softer transitionjust recently. but we are still looking at being outside the single market. so, you know, not a lot has changed. when you talk about a softer transition, it feels like that means it willjust a softer transition, it feels like that means it will just take a softer transition, it feels like that means it willjust take longer, but will have the same result. the result at the moment means we will be outside the single market and the customs union. it will be interesting to see what he says perhaps about tax and spending because the end of the age of austerity has been a big feature just recently. he is not having a budget in the summer. he will be backin budget in the summer. he will be back in september. it is a big problem. you cannot put taxes up that much without killing the economy. we both just saw mark carney using the lights to cross the road to head in. we will hearfrom him about inflation and the cost of living. yes. he will probably... he
7:41 am
will not say much about interest rates, but last week we saw some of the members voted for a hike and are worried about inflation. he will try to get rid of that speculation. it is interesting to see the path, they will be careful about the path of the economy. brexit will cost money. it will not be as good as the past. for businesses, it is the path they wa nt to for businesses, it is the path they want to know about. we know that david davis, the brexit secretary, the end result will be the same. being out of the customs union and the single market. we have power to talk about how quick and orderly we can do that. look at the election result. business confidence fell 37 net points for members. look at the chancellor and the governor, they are going to try to reassure people. this is not a cliff edge. philip hammond talked about a cliff edge.
7:42 am
that raises questions about how orderly it can beat. there are things the government can do. settling the rights of eu citizens over here. 40% of members here are eu nationals. that is what we have to check. uncertainty. businesses are used to it and still work hard and crack on with theirjobs every day. that is what we are seeing this morning. everyone heading off to work. the usual day for them. we will hear from the chancellor and the governor of the bank of england this morning. thank you. a question. if you were going to get a trophy, would you like a small one, a large one? on new can hold with two hands, one? on new can hold with two hands, one you cannot hold on one hand. —— one you cannot hold on one hand. —— one you. good morning. good morning. you can say that again. look at the sides of this! it is huge! i am

7:45 am
onshore breeze, it will be a bit cooler than yesterday. we‘ll still have a lot of cloud in scotland but a lot of dry weather. top temperatures in glasgow and edinburgh, 20 celsius. highs of 25 in manchester but lower than it was yesterday, temperature wise, across eastern areas under the cloud. despite the cloud, there will be some brighter breaks. through the midlands and east anglia, the south coast, again, a lot of sunshine. temperatures around 32 in the london area. further west into the south—west, highs of 30— 31. quite unusualfor south—west, highs of 30— 31. quite unusual for the north coast of devon and cornwall to have those values. a lot of dry and sunny weather in cardiff. fresher in northern ireland with some sunshine. as temperatures rise, we could see some thunderstorms. southwest england and south—west midlands but hit and
7:46 am
miss. no, we will not all see them. they will fade in the evening. further thunderstorms coming in across northern ireland, scotland overnight. muggy night, leading us into an other wet start across the northern part of the uk tomorrow. those thunderstorms drift eastward through the day and hot air pumps up through the day and hot air pumps up through the day and hot air pumps up through the near continent across england and wales. that hot air will travel further north tomorrow so after a fresh date today, it will pick tomorrow. 0vernight wednesday and into thursday, again, some severe thunderstorms and that could lead to some surface water issues. they will clear through the course of thursday morning, leaving a fine and dry day. areas of cloud, still some sunshine but temperatures will be that bit lower. nonetheless, we are looking at highs into the high

7:48 am
last year the nhs in england carried out nearly 100 and 50 thousand tests for conditions like sleep apnoea — that number has doubled in nine years. -- 150,000 tests. joining us now isjosie beatson, who suffers with the condition, and doctor catherine houghton who specialises in sleep medicine. good morning to you both. when did you first realise you had a problem? the severity of it came after a year. in 18 months previous to that that i started with severe symptoms of sleep apnoea. there are a number of sleep apnoea. there are a number of symptoms. getting up in the middle of the night to go to the toilet quite frequently, very loud snoring and stopping breathing. severe exhaustion. this is the kit
7:49 am
that you need. dew put this on every night? it becomes part of your bedtime routine. just pop it over, click the time and press the machine and go to sleep, that‘s it. click the time and press the machine and go to sleep, that's it. and it makes a difference immediately? absolutely, i go to sleep and if i have an apnoea, if i stop breathing, it forces compressed air into my throat and opens up my airwaves. so katherine, how many people are suffering from these types of sleep disorders? boo josie has suffering from these types of sleep disorders? boojosie has disruptive sleep apnoea. ——. disorders? boojosie has disruptive sleep apnoea. --. it is estimated that less than a third of the people suffering are diagnosed and treated. what measures can be taken? that is the most effective immediate way of treating it. it is often associated
7:50 am
with weight loss. not everyone can manage with a mask although the majority can. there mouth devices, dental devices. is it dangerous? is having sleep apnoea dangerous, not the machine! it does increase your chances of having heart attacks and strokes and it increases your blood pressure as well. it is associated with other medical conditions. the other reason it is dangerous is it is associated with an increased risk of having traffic accidents. unfortunately, some people have had fatal accidents because it makes you sleepy during the day. it is important to get it checked. will you suffering those sorts of incidents as well? yes, falling
7:51 am
asleep at work, falling asleep having a conversation. ijust couldn‘t function on a daily basis will stop i went to the doctors to say i needed help. i needed to take time off work otherwise. did you know that you are stopping breathing? no, no i didn't. we had a family function and my sister timed me for about 45 seconds not breathing. was that during a conversation? killam yes, i went to sleep. so you just went. conversation? killam yes, i went to sleep. so youjust went. -- conversation? killam yes, i went to sleep. so you just went. -- yes, conversation? killam yes, i went to sleep. so youjust went. -- yes, i went to sleep. i stopped breathing. if that happens in a car, that‘s potentially fatal. notjust if that happens in a car, that‘s potentially fatal. not just you if that happens in a car, that‘s potentially fatal. notjust you but others as well. leigh it doesn‘t happen during the daytime but because it disturbs your sleep, you can lose concentration and have an accident. is that it was because you we re accident. is that it was because you were sleeping in the same room as a family member and they realised. how would you know that this is problematic, it‘s notjust that you
7:52 am
we re problematic, it‘s notjust that you were sleeping badly or snoring?m you're snoring is really disruptive and save the neighbours complain, if you are waking up in the morning under fresh every day and falling asleep really easily in front of the television, if you are getting up at night a lot to pass urine, that could be assigned. often partners will have noticed the stopping breathing at yeah, unrest, loud snoring, they are the best things to look out for. going see a gp and get yourself assessed. once it gets diagnosed, it can be easily treatable. yes and the treatment is very effective and improves your quality of life. how do you feel now? great. i sleep now at night which is really good. thank you very
7:53 am
much indeed. talking about what happened yesterday in finsbury. a violent manifestation. it comes after an increase in recorded anti— muslim hate crime in the past few months. yesterday, the communities secretary sajid javid said he spoke to a woman who says they feel unsafe. at this community centre in longside, women of all
7:54 am
backgrounds come together to talk. islam always spread the light and love. they are mainly muslim women here and in recent months, one thing has dominated conversation. we need more security. those who wear hijab have been attacked, they pulled their hijabs. have you changed your daily life in any way, do you know people who have? i think people are a bit more wary now. we‘re very careful of opening the door, we won‘t go out at certain times of night. you‘ll make sure you‘re in groups and especially with the children, you make sure they are with you at all times and aren‘t allowed to go anywhere unless you accompany them or they‘re being taken by car. becuase there‘s so many messages going on on social media and everybody is telling everybody that this has happened, that‘s happened, so be wary. the muslim side are terrorists but the extreme right are just people that are really angry and annoyed. well no, you're both terrorists. if non—muslims can't justify what they're doing, why do i have to sit and justify what these extremists, whatever you want to call them, are doing? since manchester, we have seen women absolutely scared of going out on their own.
7:55 am
they are worried, they don‘t know what‘s going to happen, who‘s going to attack them and they actually do fear going out. so do you think the attack at finsbury mosque was bound to happen? i think that was inevitable. i think we are living, every day, we live in fear. as manchester marks the month since the terror attack at the arena, i‘ve come here to tlak to amina and zehra. after the attack, they called for women to have a bigger role in tackling extremism. let‘s not pretend this is about one community. there‘s a rise in violent behaviour in our societies across the globe and of course we see that in the uk. what we‘ve got to do is say, look, we will not tolerate that. as a society that believes in equality for all and has values, that we all agree to and have fought for, we will fight for those values based on us as human beings and british citizens. anything like the attack in finsbury park happens, where obviously it's emotive, it's painful, it's heinous and emotions are going to be at their most extreme but also there were people who'll use it to their own political ends. and we've seen that on social media where people have been promoting one agender.
7:56 am
if you look at the commonality, most people are just horrified and want to try and help and create better community relations where something like this won't happen. will be going to finsbury park later on breakfast. time now to get the news, travel and weather where you are. good morning, i‘m asad ahmad. 24 hours after the terror attack on muslim worshippers in north london during which one person died, attendees of finsbury park mosque were out as normal to offer prayers during this, the holy muslim month of ramadhan. singing. yesterday, religious leaders and politicians joined, not only to condemn the attack, but also in a call for unity

8:02 am
you more about those later on. simon was talking to some of those earlier on. they came to break prayer. ramadan is too important to miss. everyone is still shocked by what happened. they‘re living in fear, but at the same time, no—one‘s staying away and hiding. everyone‘s still coming out to pray. we have to come out and pray. we cannot run away from our prayer. it's after midnightand it away from our prayer. it's after midnight and it was about this time last night that the attack took place. people have come from other parts of london to pray in a show of solidarity. they have been embrighting in the street. the leaders have told me that despite it being one of the busiest times, it‘s been quieter tonight and some have stayed away. earlier, the community held a vigil attended by the
8:03 am
commissioner of the metropolitan police, cressida dick, and the mayor of london, who spoke of communities fighting. what you have seen over the last 24 hours is hindus, sikhs, christians, rich, poor, young, old, coming together and saying no. officers continue to hold a man arrested under terror laws who the bbc understands to be 47—year—old darren osborne from cardiff. his family said they were in shock and disbelief. lots of tributes. a short moment ago, a young lady laid this blue flower here, looked at the scene and walked away. another message — we
8:04 am
all share the same home, thank you for being part of our home. a man is in custody. there have been raids in cardiff in wales and that‘s where thomas morgan is for us this morning. good morning. i‘m on a street where we believe that the suspect darren osborne was living with his partner and four children. it‘s in the north—east of cardiff. the van that was hired to carry out this atrocity was hired to carry out this atrocity was hired to carry out this atrocity was hired from the village of pontyclu n was hired from the village of po ntyclu n to was hired from the village of pontyclun to the north—west of cardiff. i was speaking to the neighbours in this area yesterday andi neighbours in this area yesterday and i think the overwhelming feeling is really that of shock that someone that was living in the community could have carried out such an atrocious atrocity in london just a few hours ago, just yesterday, of course. we have had a statement from the family of darren osborne, saying
8:05 am
that they are just finding it com pletely that they are just finding it completely unbelievable that this has happened. they say that they‘re devastated to the families of what‘s happened and that he never expressed any racist views. the police will carry on investigating and will pass on any investigation to the metropolitan lis when they get any information. you were here last night. what were people saying to you? so many different people from religious backgrounds here to express sympathies. people did not necessarily have to say anything, you know, one particular person came to me and shook my hand. he couldn‘t find the words to express his sentiment so he was standing next to me for a while. thatjust shows us
8:06 am
that we are just one big community and we have to be strong together, we have to stand together against any form of extremism or terrorism. that sentiment very much echoed here at finsbury park outside with all these tributes. shortly after the london bridge terror attacks, you launched a campaign. what was that about? yes, there were a couple of incidents and attacks happening in the last couple of months and i‘m sure that the people had some questions about islam and we thought it was a very good opportunity for the youth to wear some t—shirts saying "i‘m a muslim, ask me anything", they went out on the streets and people approached them. we had very good feedback, people asking them questions about islam, what it is about and about the teachings of islam, whether it‘s associated with violence or extreme and we refuted the allegations and told them the message of islam is of peace and harmony. do you feel when
8:07 am
talking to people in the muslim community that they feel more under threat? there are a couple of people who are feeling that they‘re under threat or they feel some sort of fear, but again, being a muslim, i assure everyone that they shouldn‘t be afraid. this is a time where they should go out and advocate to people that when this happens or when there are some sort of threats or incidents happening, that they shouldn‘t be afraid, they should go out and show the world we are one big community. these kind of people who do these kind of attacks, or the people behind the attacks, are trying to divide us as a community and a nation. it's been made very clear that that‘s not going to happen in this community, arif khan, thank you very much. a real sense of solidarity here. dan and louise. we‘ll talk to tobias ellwood on the
8:08 am
issue of what we saw yesterday at finsbury park. diane abbott‘s told brea kfast finsbury park. diane abbott‘s told breakfast the emphasis of the government‘s prevent strategy needs to be changed, claiming it‘s focussed too heavily on islamic extremism. in herfirst interview since returning to frontline politics, after revealing she was suffering from type ii diabetes, she revealed she had never considered resigning and said she was managing her condition. stress was never an issue. my blood sugar levels was. my brother had to call me and remind me. iam back brother had to call me and remind me. i am back to fighting fitness and back to representing the people of hackney and stoke newington, and representing the labour party in the debates and battles to come. the serious fraud office has charged ba rclays serious fraud office has charged barclays and four former senior executives, including the former chief executive with conspiracy to commit fraud. this relates to an
8:09 am
investigation into undisclosed payments to qatar investors back in 2008 and steph can get more. this is an important story isn‘t it, steph? a really big story about barclays. we understand that four former executives, including the chief executive john farley, executives, including the chief executivejohn farley, have been charged with conspiracy to commit fraud. this is all to do with how thaw raised money during the financial crisis. we saw the likes of lloyds and rbs being bailed out with a shed load of money essentially from the government being give tonne the banks. to stop that happening to barclays, they looked at funding themselveses in other ways, including deals they did with qatar and abu dhabi. those deals have come into question. the serious fraud office have looked
8:10 am
into this and decide and announced this morning they‘ll be charging four individuals because of this under the charge of conspiracy to commit fraud. now, barclays who we have approached this morning have said they haven‘t yet decided their view on this, they‘re going to consider their options on it then they‘ll get back to us with that. looking at the share price this morning, that‘s gone down a little. this is all to do with the time back when everything was just going crazy in the city with how will our banks cope during the crisis? elsewhere, more than 200,000 pounds has been handed out to the 180 families affected by the grenfell tower in west london last week. the payments we re west london last week. the payments were recorded by the government‘s newly formed grenfell response team. it said 78 families had been rehoused locally or in a neighbouring borough and that 126 hotel places had been secured. an american student freed last week
8:11 am
by north korea after spending 15 months in prison has died. otto warnbier was in a coma when flown home last week. his family accuses north korea after torturing him after he was arrested for stealing a propaganda sign. donald trump spoke shortly after his death.” propaganda sign. donald trump spoke shortly after his death. i just wa nted shortly after his death. i just wanted to pass on word that otto warnbier hasjust wanted to pass on word that otto warnbier has just passed away. he spent a year—and—a—half in north korea, a lot of bad things happened, but at least we got him home to be with his parents where they were so happy to see him even though he was ina very happy to see him even though he was in a very tough condition, but he just passed away a little while ago. it's just passed away a little while ago. it‘s a brutal regime and we‘ll be able to handle it. a number of tests have been carried out in england to
8:12 am
identify if people have conditions such as sleep apnoea has found that people have the condition, instances of this condition has doubled. for the fourth time in three months, the prime minister‘s been forced to deliver a statement in the wake of another terror attack saying the country won‘t give into extremism. this in relation to finsbury park. tobias ellwood has been personally touched by terrorism twice. he lost his brotherjohn in the bali bombing then he was caught up in the westminster bridge attack when he battled in vein to save the life of pc keith palmer. he‘s since been appointed as defence minister and joins us from westminster. thank you so much morejoining us. you have a very personal connection in some ways with the aftermath of terrorism. when you wake up and hear the news that we did yesterday morning, how do you reflect on that?
8:13 am
it's morning, how do you reflect on that? it‘s again terrible news that the country it‘s again terrible news that the cou ntry wa kes it‘s again terrible news that the country wakes up to hear that a low—tech attack has taken place designed to cause as much mayhem and anger as possible and that‘s where we need to be strong and recognise that on both sides here this seems to bea that on both sides here this seems to be a revenge attack in finsbury park, it‘s exactly what the extremists want us to do, is to turn on each other, it‘s to challenge what we stand for, and get more angry to funnel that anger against each other and we need to remember what we stand for and be stronger than that. we will endure, we have endured worst in the past and we will get through this. but we must stay together. all communities when working from this recognise that on the one side the extremists that we re the one side the extremists that were in manchester and london bridge in manchester don‘t speak for islam any more than the attacker in finsbury park speaks for christianity. there‘s much work to
8:14 am
be done, but we mustn‘t be misguided in the direction that we need to follow. you are in some ways in a horrible position of being uniquely placed. to give me an idea of how you feel when your brother is killed ina you feel when your brother is killed in a terrorist attack, you have to try and help save the life of a policeman — how do you feel, how to you cope with those things? as i say, we need to look for the better things. this is a terrible attack, but the majority of muslims in this country and indeed across the world are peace—loving. indeed in the koran it makes it very clear that you should not commit suicide, that people who‘re attracted to this are the ones that don‘t understand that religion in the same way that the finsbury park attacker lacked education, i think he was suffering from mental health issues as well but thought that somehow he was doing a good thing. it shows what work we need to do to better educate everybody. the person that came to stand in the way of the attacker was
8:15 am
the imam and that actually is a better reflection of what islam is all about. and the accounts in the papers of what he did are quite considerable actually. what about far right extremism, has there been enough focus on that itself? absolutely, but when you have individuals, perhaps what they are inspired on the internet and so forth to act in this way, it‘s very, very tough to make sure that everything is covered, but this is something that i know that the home office is looking at in also in parallel to with the extremists that are inspired by islamic extremism.” know you‘re defence minister now and you‘ve commented in the past about police cuts and i want to talk to you about something you said back in 2015 and see if you would still hold that true. you said that police chiefs should stop blaming the government for cuts and that more savings can be made which would not result in the loss of front line services. would you still echo those comments? well, there has been a lot
8:16 am
of talk about this and i‘m sure after the election we will be looking carefully at there, but let‘s not forget that we‘ve just put in £144 million more another 500 armed police officers. when it comes to terrorism, it is important that our agencies, m15 and m16, gchq are given the funding they need. we have seen given the funding they need. we have seen £2.5 billion put into that. there are 43 con stab lis across britain and my emphasis back then there is a lot of over lap and duplication and i‘m pleased in my constituency in dorset, and wiltshire are now doing more together. there is a collaboration in areas whether it from firearms or cyber security, or indeed in serious crime, that constabularies are working together which is why numbers look like they‘re dropping. actually, there is a lot more collaboration on a wider regional level which is good. collaboration on a wider regional levelwhich is good. do collaboration on a wider regional level which is good. do you think there is still work to be done then?
8:17 am
well, we need to reflect firstly the mood of what the nation wants and that was apparent in the general election. we must listen to that and that was calls from all parties to and from the nation to say we need to keep our streets safe. but it‘s also understanding the intelligence when we‘re talking about terrorism, working with our colleagues, abroad, working with our colleagues, abroad, working with our colleagues, abroad, working with internet companies, removing this material, as well. but i also say that it‘s down to communities as well. it is down to each of us to recognise, mums, dads, grandparents, teachers, imams, the community to recognise when somebody might be vulnerable. when they might start to believe the things and act in way which we should say, please don‘t believe this stuff. make sure they aren‘t taken into a darker path which made lead to them acting in a violent way. i know you're with the defence defence ministry and today you are announcing help for military vetera ns. you are announcing help for military veterans. there are so many
8:18 am
charities out there and they don‘t know where best to get help. so what are you doing? this is called the vetera ns are you doing? this is called the veterans gateway project. we have huge respect and admiration for our armed forces and that continues when they remove their uniforms and go back into civilian life. 2.5 million vetera ns we back into civilian life. 2.5 million veterans we have in the ukment many of them make that transition into civilian society without a problem, but some don‘t and that‘s no fault of their own. but there are over 2,000 charities that are there to help. and sometimes the veterans don‘t know which way to turn. this is one gateway, one portal, one phone call, one website that allows you to then understand where best to seek that help from those 2,000 charities. so we‘re launching that today. i think it will be simpler for any veteran to receive the help, whether it be physical and mental challenges or unemployment, or homelessness and so forth and better tap into the good work that our charities do across the country. thank you for your time on breakfast this morning. thank you.

8:23 am
families raised children. it‘s a place where we all grew up, you know. on the night of the fire itself, shahin was away on a training course. by the time he got back, the building was already engulfed in flames. it was like someone poured petroleum all over that tower block and decided to light it. that‘s what it looked like. shahin‘s family managed to get out of the tower and are safe. but on the streets all around, are posters of the missing and raw emotion. i didn‘t know she was dead. we‘ve lost children.
8:24 am
we‘ve lost elderly. we‘ve lost friends. we‘ve lost loved ones. the people of grenfell have lost. with the loss, there is also fury that warnings about fire safety were ignored. there is anger too that it has been left to volunteers to provide help. that the government and local authority have not been doing enough. we are the people. we need your help. where are you? why are you not here? why is it local people that‘s coming out and giving me boxes? shahin and his family have spent the last five nights in a hotel, but as yet have no clear idea where they‘ll go next or when. do you feel confident they are going to find you somewhere, somewhere that you want? no. i have absolutely no

trust in the government, in the royal borough of kensington and chelsea and in the housing system. all we want is to be heard, you know, the government has the power to create unity for us. don‘t divide us. don‘t try to brush things under the carpet. don‘t try to hide things from us and the public. don‘t treat us the way you‘ve been treating us all these years. listen to the people of g re nfell tower. hear what they have to say and answer them. the residents of grenfell tower say they need help, certainty, answers, and care. and that‘s just one story. so many families involved. time now to get the news, travel and weather where you are. yesterday was the hottest day of the
