italian fans have said their country's failure to qualify for next year's world cup is an "embarrassment" for the four time winners. they lost 1—0 on aggregate to sweden in milan last night — and the italian goalkeeper gianluigi buffon was in tears as he said "sorry for all of italian football". while there's national despair in italy — there have been huge celebrations for sweden — who quailified for their first world cup in 12 years. this is how the team celebrated at the final whistle — spotting the pitchside studio of a swedish broadcaster and invading their post—match analysis. england women's interim manager mo marley has given

1:38 pm
turning legislation into something worthwhile. there is no better example of that than the well—being of future generations act. an idea that began as little more than one mind ina that began as little more than one mind in a manifesto and nothing else. when i told him he was going to ta ke else. when i told him he was going to take it forward, his response was thanks for that. he turned it into something that is now being talked about around the world. i first met karel in 2001, i had gone to speak to the labour party. when he was elected here in 2003, we became friends. his talents came to the fore when he was chief whip when i saw he was capable of gentle berating when necessary. 0n
1:39 pm
saw he was capable of gentle berating when necessary. on one occasion, taking a reluctant am out to feed the ducks. a man of many talents. in all the years i knew him, we never had a cross word. we talked about being a dad and the pressure of politics. he was always full of advice. 0nly last year, he told me that he was the only one who was allowed a beard in cabinet. i had to shave mine. he was ever present in the cabinet and with good reason. i appointed present in the cabinet and with good reason. iappointed him because present in the cabinet and with good reason. i appointed him because he was good at legislation, he was good with people, and because he brought the voice of defect to the heart of government. it is difficult to imagine what it will be a without him. he was also the best heckler in
1:40 pm
the chamber. never nasty. always witty. the conservative benchers will know that when he rose to speak he would call out someone else's name. everyone has been called in turn to speak as leader of the 0pposition. that was the man that we carl sargeant. well liked 0pposition. that was the man that we carl sargea nt. well liked and committed. jovial. determined, but fun. he will be missed by his family, by those in this chamber and by the nation. paying tribute at the welsh assembly. 0ur correspondent sian lloyd is in cardiff for us now. a very difficult day at the welsh
1:41 pm
assembly today as the paid tribute it week after he was found dead. very sombre mood here but there have beenin very sombre mood here but there have been ina very sombre mood here but there have been in a few smiles as people have been in a few smiles as people have been remembering and reflecting on carl sargent their colleague and friend. it was a week ago that he died. yesterday an inquest into his death was opened and adjourned. he had been discovered by his wife at their home a week ago. it appeared that he had taken his own life. he had been sacked by carwynjones four days prior to that and suspended from the labour party over allegations of his conduct made by a number of women. since then, the
1:42 pm
prime minister has received criticism about he handled these allegations. we have since heard that there is going to be an independent inquiry. above all, todayis independent inquiry. above all, today is about tributes to carl sargeant, people who have worked with him for a long time, remembering him. we heard the first minister paying tribute. what have other people said? lesley griffiths was a very close friend, she said one be gone, it is still so hard to process why we are here today paying oui’ process why we are here today paying our tribute to cairo. i met him 16 yea rs our tribute to cairo. i met him 16 years ago, he was proud to be elected as member for alyn and deeside in north wales. karel always sat opposite me. he was a character
1:43 pm
but a serious individual. he knew what his role was. he spoke for the people and for the length and breadth of wales. from my perspective, something that i associate him with is his authenticity. he was a politician who was authentically working class. he was committed to his community. there have also been some smiles as people have been paying tribute to him and giving their personal recollections of the man the mess so much. a 71—year—old woman — arrested in connection with a missing teenager — has been released on bail. 19 —year—old gaia pope — who has severe epilepsy — was last seen on the 7th november. dorset police say a 19—year—old man who was arrested at the same time as the 71—year—old woman, is still helping police with their inquiries. officers say they were both known to gaia. a north korean soldier

it marks their sixth consecutive year of growth as the flat pack retailer celebrates its 30th anniversary in the uk. bailiffs were called in to collect debts by councils in england and wales on more than two million occasions last year. the figures have been released by the money advice trust. the charity says that while some councils have reduced their use of baliffs, over all councils use of baliffs has increased by 1a% in the last 2 years — and that the majority of cases involved money owed for council tax. joanna elson, chief executive of the money advice trust, the charity that runs national debtline. what is the issue with baliffs? the issue is that a bailiff use is
1:48 pm
neither effective in terms of collecting debt, if you look at where councils collect most debt is not when they the bailiffs, and it is really distressing for local residents. we heal lots of lots of stories of people especially with children being very distressed and anxious and having sleepless nights when a bailiff tries to take their goods away. councils are owed this money — they need it to pay for vital services in the community — what should they do? you are right. councils need to collect the money that is owed to them. we rely on these services. we see from other sectors there are better ways of collecting debts. look at banks and credit card companies and utilities companies. they are investing in training for their staff. they are contacting people fairly and they are offering to see what arrangements can be put

in place to help people pay their debts back. it is a more effective and pleasant way of collecting debt than the way the councils are pursuing. we urge people to get advice from a free service from us or another charity, and we are urging councils to signpost to these services. the advice on what to do. bailiff law is compensated. most people don't realise that you don't need to let the bill this end if they have not been on your premises before. the law is complicated. it is worse taking advice. for more on this story do head to our website: www. bbc.c0. uk/news/business as we've been hearing, uk inflation has held steady at five—and—a—half year high of 3% in october. falls in the price of raw materials

and cheaper fuel was offset by continued price rises for food. but it follows a quarter point cut in interest rates last month — the first in a decade. it's been seen as an attempt by the bank of england to stop inflation soaring out of control. earlier we spoke to lucy 0'carroll, chief economist at aberdeen standard investments and asked if she thinks inflation has peaked. it could have, or it could come next month. if it is higher next month, the governor of the bank of england will write a letter to the chancellor to save what he is going to do to get inflation down again. it won't trouble mark carney too much, we are working in the context ofa much, we are working in the context of a first internet rights in a decade. the bank feels it is already taking action. interest rates at the moment is probably not going to

change people's behaviour. it is a reminder, people who are approaching adulthood now who do not know what an interest rate is, interest rates can go up as an interest rate is, interest rates can go up as well as down. credit suisse has agreed to pay a settlement of nearly £103 million after regulators in new york found its foreign exchange unit was involved in unlawful conduct. it's the latest settlement to emerge from a global investigation into foreign currency markets. credit suisse said it was pleased ‘to put this matter behind it'. goldman sachs has written off the value of its stake in the weinstein company after claims from more than 50 women that ex—chairman harvey weinstein sexually harassed or assaulted them. weinstein has denied the claims but the firm is seeking fresh funding after a number of investors severed links. shares in toymaker mattel — which owns barbie — jumped 20% after reports that rival hasbro could be considering a takeover. hasbro , the owner of play doh and my little pony , were also up. last month, shares in both companies fell on concerns that the bankruptcy of toys r us could hurt sales.

the first group of students from the uk's only degree course for deaf performers is taking to the stage with a new production that blends british sign language and english. it's hoped the adaptation of caryl churchill's play ‘love and information' will challenge perceptions and make sign language more visible. 0ur scotland correspondent lorna gordon went to meet them. it is a play with big themes that affect us all. love and how we make sense of things in an increasingly frenetic world. the 50 short scenes, each with a different set of characters, are all performed by ten actors who happened to be deaf. i think the play's very, very powerful because it is able to show different perspectives in that deaf people are similar to hearing people in that environment and that we're all similar, we're all the same and i think that play really demonstrates that. mr rushmore, if you could

just open the door... their performance in a mixture of english, captioning and british sign language a chance to showcase the actors‘ talents. and british sign language itself. it's a wonderful opportunity and we've really enjoyed it. absolutely because sign language can be so big, so rich, so expressive and in a theatre setting means we can show also solve levels of emotion. the actors, all students at glasgow's royal conservatoire, are on the country's only degree course for deaf performers. embracing deafness as part of their identity and hoping their performance will help others do the same. it's a great way for me to carry on and show people that it's 0k to be who you are, because i kind of old before i was being shuffled off into the background like i was a liability or i was just a burden to someone else, i thought i'll say nothing and back off, now i'm thinking, you know what, i'm going to step
1:55 pm
forward and let them see me forwho i am. the scottish government recently announced plans to integrate the use of sign language into everyday life and the play's director believes this performance will help with challenging perceptions in the theatre and the arts. i think it's about british sign language being more visible, being more out in the open and recognised as a language. so i think this production and the degree programme here at the conservatoire are is part of that movement. another step in showing that british sign language should be celebrated as a language in its own right. lorna gordon, bbc news, glasgow. a british doctor says he escaped a shark by punching it in the face, while he was surfing in australia. charlie fry, who is 25, said the 6—foot long animal "jumped out of the water and hit him in the right shoulder". he punched it while in the water — north of sydney — and then climbed back on his board.
