11:01 pm
rescuers are trying their best to rescue more people. more than 50 people have been pulled out of buildings alive but rescues the effort at 12—year—old girl and her collapsed school continuing. the quake was the deadliest to hit the country in 32 years. the rescue efforts became all the more desperate in mexico city. volu nteers more desperate in mexico city. volunteers hung onto moments of hope but in all the confusion, no one really knew what the ambulances were carrying away. any rumour of life, the call went out the dog is where
11:02 pm
more of the soldiers had been deployed. the focal point became the school where children's and teachers have the missing. for a time we were getting access to the schoolyard with rescue workers right beside the collapsed 3—storey building. there was a dramatic moment when it was announced that all efforts were to be focused on the 30—year—old girl they thought they had it contact with. —— they thought they had it contact with. -- 13. they thought they had it contact with. —— 13. then one of the teachers was called forward, potentially a familiar voice for a trapped girl to hear. through the night rescues work through the site, using specialist rescue cameras. it appeared someone was rescued overnight but their conditions unknown. much of the news has been bad. it is believed the body of a
11:03 pm
teacher was pulled out. with seemingly all of mexico holding its breath, and an official has come out saying that no more children have come out alive. the operation continues because rescues they they believe someone who worked at the school is still trapped alive. it is ha rd to school is still trapped alive. it is hard to use heavy machinery to free her because of the risk of further collapse. the work is so delicate, says this rescue brigade head, have to do everything by hand. if you do not, it could cause something very serious. volunteers and experts came together giving from a thai ‘s pa rents, together giving from a thai ‘s parents, school community and a nation hope that more children would be found alive. now, though, it has all turned to a sense of grief even
11:04 pm
more acute than before. let's let's speak to someone who worked for the usa disaster of first where he saw recovery efforts and disaster relief. thank you for joining us, jeremy. how well organised and equipped by the mexican authorities to deal with disasters like this? mexico faces many different kinds of disasters. we saw the other week. mexico has invested in it and disaster measures capabilities obviously discolour something like this is quite overwhelming. this is where the neighbouring countries step in. how do they do that? they pass old from neighbouring countries and teams have been deployed from the usa and
11:05 pm
other countries in the region, panama, whether that happens there isa panama, whether that happens there is a fairly well oiled system. they train and exercise together across the world so the reason to standardise system they can tap into and deploy immediately upon arrival. we are about a0 h —— a7 hours since the earthquake. how critical period is this? we are starting to get into the time were live rescues are becoming less likely. traditionally, we are still in the window but the longer it goes to lessen the chances of pulling anyone alive out. what is that decision based on the move from rescue the recovery and the
11:06 pm
restoration? it is apparentlyjust learned experience. it is very rare for people to survive by date for all five. generally the the buildings would have been cased and they would have an idea about whether anyone is still alive under the rubble. what is it like to make that decision? you know, i think everything that these teams do is a mixture of hope and pretty grim. it is wonderful and inspiring when these teams pull somebody out of the rubble but the reality of what these teams is that most of the people they pull out of the rubble will not bea they pull out of the rubble will not be a live. how do you determine which buildings are fit for purpose? one of the key thing is that these
11:07 pm
teams and will do after that rescue window passes is assessed the viability of some key infrastructure. after the earthquake in nepal, for example, in 2015, the teams did have a few live rescues and then they stayed on for a few weeks after assessing key infrastructure in conjunction with the government to see whether it was viable. thank you very much. my pleasure. theresa may will propose a transitional deal for the uk of up two years in order to secure a smooth exit from the european union. it is thought the plan could cost britain £18 billion pounds. but the final brexit bill is likely to be higher. the prime minister is expected to make the offer in a key speech on brexit in italy tomorrow. theresa may also wants continued access to the single market during that transition time and for britain to be able to negotiate its own trade deals.
11:08 pm
from florence, our political editor laura kuenssberg reports. this city might be an escape from westminster, yet the trickiness of our departure from the eu is no easier in a foreign language. and here on mainland europe, as at home, threats to theresa may lurk in many different corners. before packing her bags, she had to try to get her cabinet onside. after two and a half hours, an oh so natural display. look, we all smile and agree. is this your new best friend? very united, very good, all behind the speech. mr cairns, will eu leaders like what they hear in florence? you'll have to wait and see. we don't have to wait for all the detail, though, the prime minister is expected to say for the first time explicitly the uk will seek a transition deal that could be up to two years long, after we leave the eu. she's likely to signal, too, she might be ready to offer
11:09 pm
20 billion euros so that no other country loses out from brexit. but after we leave the prime minister will make clear again she wants a bespoke trade arrangement, not a model based on any other. remember in the referendum leavers promised we would remember in the referendum leavers promised we would get money back. but after a visit to number 10, this prominent eurosceptic sounds completely on board with paying, if only for a couple of years. we're leaving a big hole in their finances if we just leave. and if the european union is going to deal constructively with us and reach a sensible agreement, well, then there are reasonable political and diplomatic reasons why we should help them. but in a transition the eu's top negotiator has been firm we have to pay and play by their rules. saying there are still big uncertainties around our approach.
11:10 pm
in government circles, though, there is hope this speech can unlock the eu impasse, that is why the plans have been carefully kept under wraps. and i have the british prime minister on the phone this afternoon, don't tell the public, because the public will not be told. but no more secrets on this speech tomorrow on how decades of membership, ties of money, of politics, will start to be phased out. there is much still for britain to decide, though, for the eu to discuss. this is still the overture before we finally depart. the boss of ryanair has admitted that a significant management failure has caused the cancellation of 2000 flights in september and october. pilots are now being told
11:11 pm
to postpone a week of their holiday untiljanuary. to postpone a week of their holiday until january. pay rises to postpone a week of their holiday untiljanuary. pay rises are offered in areas where the right equipment problems. underfire the under fire the cancelling thousands of flights. michael o'leary, ryanair‘s boss, admits to a significant management failure but denies he is feeling the heat. more than 300,000 passengers have had to rebook or cancel their flights. the company says most will be sorted by the end of the week. it will take longer to fix their reputation. the end of the week. it will take longer to fix their reputationlj was longer to fix their reputation.” was obviously very angry but there was obviously very angry but there was nothing i could do. every year i say i am not on the fly with them again because of the way they treat their staff and the conditions. the minimise the damage, the company has offered pilots bonuses abt to 12,000 pounds if they work extra days. some
11:12 pm
will have to reschedule some leaves. i have seen the letter supported by many ryanair pilots that says they wa nt to many ryanair pilots that says they want to reject the extra money and wa nt want to reject the extra money and want new contracts instead. they complain about working extremely long hours and being called in at the last minute on their days off. they see this as a golden opportunity to improve conditions at work. they are under a lot of pressure. they are often overworked. frankly, 1 cent me his roster today and he has a5 hours and a5 minutes of flying in one week. pilots are in high demand and other rivals have been poaching their staff. we need another 500,000 pilots. that is a global crisis. everywhere pilots are needed and, obviously, a low—cost carrier has low salaries is losing
11:13 pm
pilots. pilots say this is a big chance to get more secure contracts but michael o'leary is not the type to back down. if cruise pull together and take action, it could mean more cancel flights for passengers. mark zuckerberg, the head of facebook, says the company will give information about adverts paid for by russians during last year ‘s presidential election. after the eu referendum in britain, the phrase that gained currency was post— trees. it felt like good going through no truth in the presidential election. social media was awash with advertisements masquerading as a serious news stories. they were invariably fake and invariably in favour of donald trump and against hillary clinton. things like, hillary clinton. things like,
11:14 pm
hillary clinton. things like, hillary clinton has had murdered an fbi officer involved in unmasking her e—mail scandal. all of these had an impact because at the end of the election, more people were reading the fake news story than the real news. under in a must pressure, facebook is going to show the transparency it often talks about and reveal where the source of those adverts came for and how much the russians paid and were they were all going. this will answer one question, the extent of russian involvement. but it will not answer is that what impact of those fake news stories had on the electorate. that will still be hotly contested between the trump and hillary clinton supporters. i looked at the front pages which we
