2:03 pm
we are ageing as a population but too many of us are ageing with a number of chronic diseases. the reason why we are seeing this increase in chronic diseases such as cancer, stroke and heart disease is in large part because of behaviours which are adopted in the 40—60 age period. for example, still smoking or not getting enough physical activity, or perhaps drinking too much alcohol. the big impact, of course, is this will put a huge burden on health services. to get the message across, in march public health england launched a health quiz as part of its one you campaign. it says more than i million people have now taken the quiz and now have a route map to change their lives. and lee parker, who you saw in that report has been telling me what impact living a healthier lifestyle has had had on his life. before i started my fitness journey

2:05 pm
together, or a parent or a child doing it together, is that beneficial? definitely, myself and my partner started the slimming world journey. we have an eight—year—old boy and he inspired me to get off the sethi because he said to me, "daddy, i love you so much even know you are fat.

2:06 pm
parker there, talking to me a little earlier. now, let's get an update on the news that emerged in the last half an hour or so. news that police in germany have detailed a genius in connection with the lovely attack that you will remember and the balance christmas market. —— deep haynes h in easy in man. ayes the lobby attack. joining me now from berlin is our correspondent, damian mcgiunness. what are the police saying? they have confirmed they have detained a a0 world she needs in man, because his phone number was saved in the mobile phone belonging to the attack of the christmas market in bellingham. they have now raided his home and his work place. —— in balloon. they have a day to deeside whether they have enough evidence to formally arrested them right now
2:07 pm
he's just detained what is interesting is that officials across europe are also piecing together the route taken after the attack, before he died in that shoot out in milan. that was a shoot out with italian police. it seems that according to italian investigations he went via holland, before going to france and ending of the milan. they know that because they found to sim cards in the rocks belonging to him and those we re the rocks belonging to him and those were some cards there were only distributed at certain shops, at a certain time, at the end of december, in holland. so we're getting a lot of details about the movement of the attacker of that christmas market. so, that gives as the extent of the stale of this continuing investigation. —— the scale. 0ne continuing investigation. —— the scale. one might issue know quite few numbers in anis amri's phone so
2:08 pm
they might be quite a few leads for they might be quite a few leads for the authorities. well batted the big worry, because german authorities say there are up but 550 people in germany who are suspected islamist and possibly dangerous. but now people across europe and particularly in germany are trying to piece together anis amri's movements. the worry is he wasn't acting alone. if he was alone attack attacker that would mean the incident was over, if he had people working with him that means the danger is still there. as you know, so—called, islamic state has claimed responsibility for the attack so officials are taking seriously any leads they have too anyone else who might be involved in either the planning or in the itself or could possibly be connected to anis amri and would therefore be seen as suspicious because they could be potentially dangerous book teacher at tax. that is really the big worry

2:14 pm
that situation has occurred before in my experience. the fishing industry is very well regulated, by the different mansion and authority. accidents can happen but in terms of winding crewmen or all—time fishing vessels i can recall a number of other incidents in the past but it is not an everyday cannons. what will be investigating log in to to try and establish how this happened? the investigating authorities will examine everything and reconstruct a trip ora examine everything and reconstruct a trip or a boys from the moment it departed its port up until the accident point. they are very dollar. the fact that there is a crew man alive will help the investigating authorities. —— they are very investigating authorities. —— they are very thorough. what conditions is he on? i am afraid i can't comment on the condition that he is
