high tech camera collars give a birds—eye view of polar bears struggling to find food on the shrinking arctic ice. and coming up in the sport on bbc news, can liam brodie recover from a difficult start in great britain's opening davis cup rubber against spain in marbella? good afternoon and welcome to the bbc news at one. theresa may is coming under increasing pressure to spell out what she hopes to achieve from the brexit negotiations, including whether britain should remain part of the customs union after it leaves the eu.
1:02 pm
some leave—supporting conservative mps have urged the prime minister to be more specific about her priorities for future trade deals. downing street says mrs may has an open mind to the kind of customs arrangement the uk should pursue. speaking to our political editor laura kuenssberg, theresa may said her visit to china will help boost british trade prospects. this trip is an example of global britain. it's about britain getting out around the world, and, yes, enhancing our trade links and crucially what happened here is that we have seen the businesses i have brought with me on this trip signing deal which means more jobs brought with me on this trip signing deal which means morejobs for people back in britain. that's good news for britain, it global britain in action and that's what we are seeing here. on top of doing business around the world, your party, the public, business, they wa nt to party, the public, business, they want to know do you favour a really close relationship with the european union once we add or a more dramatic break? what a favour if a deal, an
1:03 pm
arrangement for trading with eu which is going be good for trade between the uk and the european union and good forjobs in britain. it's a fundamental choice here, isn't there? your chancellor has said he believes the changes might be very modest and one of your former brexit ministers who is on your side has said the government is yet to make clear choices and you are risking end now but something which looks like meaningless waffle. my which looks like meaningless waffle. my choice is very simple, we take back control of our money, back control of our borders, back control of our laws,. you know very well that the decision time is fast approaching. which is more important to you, less disruption to the economy or more control for the parliament and politicians because the eu, many people in business, many members of the public, people in your party believe you simply can't have both. i don't believe those are alternatives also what the british people voted for is for us
1:04 pm
to take back control of our money, borders and laws. and that's exactly what we're going to do. we also want to ensure that we can trade a cross—border. we're at the start of the negotiation. at the end of that negotiation, deal will be presented to parliament, and parliament will have a meaningful vote. to parliament, and parliament will have a meaningfulvote. do to parliament, and parliament will have a meaningful vote. do you want to be the tory leader at the next general i have been asked this question on a number of occasions andi question on a number of occasions and i said very clearly drop my political career i've served my country and i've served my party. i'm nota country and i've served my party. i'm not a quitter, i'm country and i've served my party. i'm nota quitter, i'm in i'm not a quitter, i'm in this because there's a job to be done here. and that is delivering for the buddhist people and doing that in a way that ensures the future prosperity of our country. our view of the day after day the tory party fighting amongst themselves. how do you reassert your authority?” fighting amongst themselves. how do you reassert your authority? i am doing but the british people want, delivering on brexit also getting out around the world ensuring that we bring jobs back to britain. companies will be selling the great british projects to china as a result of this trip, more people in jobs in the uk as a result of this
1:05 pm
trip, that global britain in action. the prime minister speaking earlier. lets talk with our political correspondent eleanor garnier is in westminster. this was an important trip for trade. has it been overshadowed by speculation about her leadership? certainly, theresa may will want to emphasise the success of her trip to china. coming back with billions of pounds worth of business deals, and that phrase she wants to push global britain in action, an image, if you like, the confident uk as it leaves the eu, but it's certainly not a conservative party brimming with confidence she comes back to full for bs, there is a continuing infighting and spits and her cabinet she needs to get control of, but the real problem for theresa may is the concern that some have in her party over her own leadership. some are talking of despondency, dissolution,
1:06 pm
some are questioning her own decisiveness and lack of it, and even some who have supported her in the past are becoming more wobbly in their confidence in her leadership and she is being accused of blocking, not delivering radical change when it comes to domestic policy. so she comes home from china under pressure to keep her party united, under pressure to spell out her priorities when it comes to trading relationships after brexit, but also under pressure to secure her own leadership and i think as we have seen this week, the tories' tiles and tip relations have continued to follow her around the globe and it is clearly an issue she needs to get a grip of. eleanor, thank you. darren osborne has been sentenced to life in prison, for the terrorist attack outside finsbury park mosque in london last year. he was found guilty yesterday of murder and attempted murder after driving a van into worshippers injune, killing one man and injuring several others. our home affairs correspondent
1:07 pm
daniel sandford is at woolwich crown court. daniel. yes, the sentencing hearing today began with a victim impact statement from the daughter of the man who was murdered by darren osborne during this terrorist attack. she said her mother is still co nsta ntly attack. she said her mother is still constantly having nightmares and co nsta ntly constantly having nightmares and constantly feeling lonely and her brothers, 13 and 1a, will now grow up brothers, 13 and 1a, will now grow up without the help and support of their father. my son, up without the help and support of theirfather. my son, she up without the help and support of their father. my son, she said, up without the help and support of theirfather. my son, she said, is a lwa ys theirfather. my son, she said, is always asking where his grandad is. talking about her father, she said his life was taken in a very cruel way i have very narrow—minded, heartless man. in the last half an hour, thejudge has come to pass sentence, talking about baron osborne that was defence and a
1:08 pm
mysterious man called dave had been driving and vanished and she said you have been convicted on overwhelming evidence of the jury was also your pathetic last ditch attempt to deceive them. she talked about how he was rapidly radicalised over the internet, had allowed his mind to be poisoned and he ignored the good sense of those people around him who tried to put him on toa around him who tried to put him on to a proper path. she said this was a terrorist act, a murder done for the purposes of advancing a religious racial and political clause and then coming to sentence she said that a life sentence was inevitable for murder and also pass a life sentence for attempted murder and the minimum term that darren osborne would serve in prison was 43 yea rs osborne would serve in prison was 43 years behind bars which means he won't be released until after his 90th birthday, that's the earliest he could be released. daniel sandford, thank you. for the first time, the number of men dying from prostate cancer has overtaken the number of women dying from breast cancer. it makes prostate cancer the third biggest cancer killer in the uk. the charity, prostate cancer uk,
1:09 pm
says advances in diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer have paid off and argues similar benefits could be seen if more money was allocated to the fight against prostate cancer. our health correspondent dominic hughes reports. prostate cancer does not discriminate. last year, keen runner tony collier discovered he had the disease while training for an ultra marathon. his diagnosis was late, and he knows cancer will eventually take his life. so tony is using the time he has left to warn other men about the dangers. i think it's really important that people are aware of what their symptoms are and i would actually urge men to talk to their doctors if they have any urinary issues at all. my issue is that i didn't actually have any symptoms and they think i had the cancer for ten years beforehand. more men are living to an age where they have a greater chance of developing prostate cancer, so in 2015, more than 11,800 men died from the disease.
1:10 pm
that compares with just over 11,400 deaths in 2015 due to breast cancer. and while the proportion of people dying from prostate cancer, the mortality rate has fallen over the past decade, down by 6%, the decline in deaths from breast cancer has been even greater, more than 10%. prostate cancer has not had as much investment and has therefore tended to lag behind and it's now time realising it's the third biggest cancer killer, it is the most common cancer in men, it really is time to actually get behind this and to realise that we need to get on top of it now because it's just going to become more common and it's actually going to kill more men if we aren't able to do that. cancers of the lung and bowel remain the biggest killers but even here there has been significant progress. improved treatments and years of research are now showing results. the really exciting things that are going on in the cancer research field at the moment is personalised medicines were getting to know tumours inside and out, the genes that make them tick
1:11 pm
and the faulty molecules that also are fuelling the tumour‘s growth and the more that we know about individual cancers the more personalised we can make treatments and that's where we think we can make real progress in developing new treatments and helping more people survive. meanwhile, tony has joined those calling for increased funding for prostate research and the development of a reliable screening programme. so the gain seen in the fight against other cancers can be matched when combating the disease that he knows will eventually claim his life too. dominic hughes, bbc news. police in the united states say the actor robert wagner is now being treated as a person of interest in an investigation into the death of his wife, the film star natalie wood. she was found drowned in 1981 during a california yachting trip with wagner and her death was ruled to have been an accident. they were a hollywood golden couple at the time. natalie wood had been a child star, in miracle on 34th street and got her first oscar nomination

1:13 pm
wagoner was with her up until the moment she went into the water. in 2011, the case was reopened. evidence of bruising led to the cause of death being changed to drowning and other undetermined factors. recently, we have received information which we felt was substantial enough to make us take another look at this case. and now detectives say two more people have come forward saying they also heard raised voices on the night and one said she saw figures in the back of the splendour, male and female, whose voices they recognised as being robert wagoner and natalie wood. arguing in the back of the boat. back in 2011, that family issued a statement saying it supported the police ‘s efforts and the detectives at the time had this to say about robert wagoner. any questions? is robert wagoner a suspect? no. six years on? ithink
1:14 pm
it suspicious enough to make us think something happened for them i don't think she got into the what else, she fell into the water. as we've investigated the case over the la st we've investigated the case over the last six years, i think he's more of a person of interest now. we know his last person to be would natalie before she disappeared. ladies and gentlemen, robert wagoner. so not a suspect, a person of interest. robert wagoner has made no comment about these latest developers. but 37 years on, the story of this golden hollywood couple and the investigation into the death of natalie wood is still very much ongoing. david sillitoe, bbc news. a woman has been giving evidence for a third day at the trial for rape of two ulster and ireland rugby players. paddy jackson and she would

match since october due to an ankle injury. high—tech tracking collars with cameras attached have given us this incredible bear‘s—eye view of polar bears' life in the arctic. cameras have been fitted to nine female polar bears, in an attempt to discover how the animals are managing to find enough food on the diminishing arctic ice. our science correspondent victoria gill has more. a polar bear‘s view of the arctic. these remarkable images were captured by cameras inside tracking collars that scientists fitted to nine solitary female polar bears. the researchers had to work for
1:18 pm
three arctic spring seasons come from 2014, two 2016, to capture and collar nine solitary bears. each animalwar collar nine solitary bears. each animal war collarfor collar nine solitary bears. each animal war collar for around ten days before the cameras inside were retrieved, revealing these unique insights into their behaviour. the aim was to understand whether the animals were getting enough to eat during the critical springs forth. —— spring thaw. arctic sea ice is decreasing at about 14% every decade. the bears use that ice to hunt for their prey, seals. so as well as fitting them with tracking and camera containing collars the researchers injected the bears with a metabolic tracer. this showed that wild bears have a higher metabolic rate than previously thought and that most of them were unable to catch enough food to meet their energy needs. it's really quite fascinating to learn the basic
1:19 pm
behaviours of these animals and how they are using the sea ice environment. this is in the spring, where temperatures can get down to -20, -30 where temperatures can get down to —20, —30 celsius, so it's pretty inhospitable. it would be almost impossible for research are to be out on the sea ice in those conditions for an extended period of time. there's very little information that exists on the basic behaviours of these animals on the seaice behaviours of these animals on the sea ice and so this camera collar provides us with an insight into what the bears are doing. the scientists say this new technology, following their every move and every meal, reveals just how the predators will be affected as their icy environments transforms around them. victoria gill, bbc news. the latest figures from the technology giant apple show that it sold slightly fewer iphones in the final three months of last year, compared to the year before. but higher prices compensated for the dip — and it still made a £14 billion profit in that period.
1:20 pm
our technology correspondent rory cellan—jones is with me. still making a lot of money? yeah, it continues to be one of the most profitable, if not the most profitable, if not the most profitable companies we've ever seen, and its iphone the single most profitable product in history. when you think how many have been sold and how much cash it has generated. the one shadow, that slight fall in sales in the last quarter, compared with a year ago. so 77.3 million iphone sales, just a bit down on the year before. so has it peaked or has it not? it doesn't look quite so bad when you look at the global sales of smartphones over the last quarter, which actually suffered quite a sharp drop, down 6.3%. so has the appetite for smartphones globally now peaked ? appetite for smartphones globally now peaked? and of those numbers apple actually came out top, overtook samsung as the world's
1:21 pm
leading smartphone player. so even if we are getting a bit less keen on paying those high prices, apple is still ruling the roost in terms of making profits from smartphones. there have been a lot of results this week from a variety of tech firms. what does it tell us, the broader picture, the state of the industry? we've had google, amazon, facebook. i picked as an out of those three. amazon making its biggest profit ever. amazon nevin tries to make much profit, it tries to plunge any money turns back into continuing its quest for global domination and that has continued —— amazon never tries to make much profit. it making huge inroads into the e—commerce industry, really dominant there. overall the figures show the american giants increasingly dominant and that's going to cause alarm bells for regulators around the world. rory cellan—jones, thank you. the authorities in the french port of calais have called for extra security measures, after clashes erupted
1:22 pm
between crowds of migrants. four eritreans are reported to be in a critical condition in hospital, after they were shot during fights between afghan and african migrants. let's find out more from our reporter, gavin lee, who is in calais. explain more about what's been going on and what the authorities there want done about it? what we know is for the past few months, in fact building up since the closure of the so—called jungle camp, where there were 7000 or so migrants here, there have been small numbers gathering since that camp closed. now they are up to 700 or 800 migrants in different clusters across the calais region. what happened yesterday was according to the charity workers, some migrants here, there was food distribution being given out by one charity and something flared between a group of afg ha ns something flared between a group of afghans and a group of eritrean man. we're talking about 200 eritrean men, about 30 afghan men. shots was fired. four many a hospital in a
1:23 pm
serious condition, one said to be a life—threatening condition. 22 others with minor injuries including two police officers. the interior ministry of france came here this morning and said this is the worst violence there has been in many months in calais and what you can see at the moment here is more charities bringing out furtherfood distribution. one of the big issues we are hearing about is the lack of any type of sanitation and bad food for the migrants here, and the fact the french position from the police is to move them on quickly. one brief point, emmanuel macron gave a speech here a week ago, talking about how they will be no newjungle camp, but there will be more swapping and moving those unaccompanied minors under 17 to the uk, a deal with theresa may we are told from charities that brought about 200 migrants here in the last week or so believing they may have a chance. that's added to the frustrations here and sparked the violence. gavin lee, thank you. a

man has pleaded not guilty to the murder of two schoolgirls in sussex 30 years ago. the two girls were found dead in woods on the outskirts of brighton in october 19 86. russell bishop, who is 51, was remanded in custody and will stand trial at the old bailey this october. five people have been killed after two army helicopters in france crashed near the southern resort town of st tropez. both helicopters belonged to a military flying school, which trains pilots. local officials say all those on board died when the helicopters collided, but what caused the accident is still not clear. the nspcc has accused the government of dragging its feet when it comes to protecting children online. the charity says about half the recommendations made in a report commissioned a decade ago still haven't been introduced. ministers say they are working to make the uk the safest place to be online. sarah
1:25 pm
campbell reports. this is the online generation. over the past decade the internet and its use has expanded rapidly. it can be hard to keep up.|j it can be hard to keep up. i think she's a bit behind with snapchat and stuff them and my dad is as well. they get their names a bit confused. most of the time. but she knows about them and she knows how to use them, kind of. before the likes of whatsapp, snapchat and instagram even existed, just ten years ago, professor ta nya even existed, just ten years ago, professor tanya byron, a clinical psychologist, was asked by the then government to look into children's safety online. a decade later the nspcc say fewer than half of her recommendations have been put into place. uk council of child internet safety was established. video games now have to have an age rating. but the charity says there's been no improvement to parental controls for games consoles, and no code of
1:26 pm
practice is yet in place for the online industry. and even though the government says it does plan to introduce a voluntary code of practice, in 2018 professor byron argues any code now must be mandatory. we're talking about children at risk of sexual exploitation service, of grooming, and those kinds of contacts. it has to happen now. there has been ten yea rs to happen now. there has been ten years for the voluntary code to be put together. it hasn't happened. so now we need a mandatory code. if you look at germany for example, they will find social media —— they will find social media companies that don't take down extremist content. the technology is there. rebecca lu ry the technology is there. rebecca lury is amanda headteacher and agrees social networks can't be left to voluntarily police themselves —— rebecca is a mum, and a headteacher. it would be good to have something concrete and everybody has to abide by it and then we can learn from each other and make sure that happens. i understand why companies might not wish to do that but for
1:27 pm
children's safety it is important. in response to the nspcc‘s report the government says social media companies must go further and faster in reducing the risks their platforms prose, particularly to children, and we are considering all options to make this happen including changes to the law when necessary. the question is whether legislation can catch up with the ever evolving internet will stop sarah campbell, bbc news. rugby‘s six nations tournament begins tomorrow, with hopes high in scotland that they have their best team in decades. defending champions england are playing in rome on sunday. but it all begins tomorrow in cardiff, as wales host scotland — a rugby nation anticipating a renaissance which defies the odds. joe wilson reports. scottish borders — working land. but embedded deep in this region's history — rugby. gala's population is 15,000. the town's rugby union club has produced some 46 full internationals for scotland.
1:28 pm
you can see them all on the proudly maintained clubhouse walls. this man is better known by another pose. that's peter dods. commentator: peter dods, with this vital conversion kick... in 1984, scotland beat everyone. five nations grand slam. dods kicked the points for a team filled with borderers. in the border culture we are fighters. you could put us into a dogfight and the strongest dog wins. i think that culture is still there. i think with gregor townsend being the coach now, he will bring that culture into the national team. he's there, gregor townsend. perhaps gala's most famous rugby son, now the coach of a resurgent scotland team. under his guidance they've beaten australia, home and away, with exciting attacking rugby. commentator: hugh jones trying to make it... the maths? in england there are nearly 400,000 registered rugby players. in scotland, 49,000.
1:29 pm
you are by far the smallest nation and yet you are able to beat australia twice, you're able to go into the six nations with real belief. how come? this is a good question. i believe being small has its advantages. it has its advantages in that you can recognise and identify players quicker that are maybe standing out. small means we can work together closer. well a coach can only pick players who are fit and injuries are everywhere. as wales completed their preparations here they can think of a dozen players they could have had in their squad, but they are out injured. so tomorrow the welsh team will be experimental. england, winners of the past two six nations, begin this year in italy on sunday. they are well resourced and well rehearsed. only ireland have beaten england in recent years. the 2015 champions are looking strong again. they start in france.
1:30 pm
i've been there with ireland many times and within 20 or 30 minutes we're 20 or 30 points down and the game's over because they've got out of the blocks with raw emotion and had a fantastic start. so for me it's a really, really tough place to go and play. back in gala, rugby has returned to amateur status. training under lights after work for the love of it. the more this sport changes the more important that spirit seems. joe wilson, bbc news. what's the weather doing this weekend and today? here's lucy martin. it's going to be cold. cold as the theme of the weather. today, there's been some
