8:02 pm
welcome to bbc news. president trump says there will be very severe consequences if iran restarts its nuclear programme. it follows his decision yesterday to withdraw from the 2015 iran nuclear deal. the move has left other countries including britain who've signed up to it trying to salvage what they can of the agreement. the foreign secretary, borisjohnson, told mps that britain had no intention of walking away from the deal. the nuclear agreement was signed three years ago between iran and six other countries including the us, the uk and russia. iran agreed to limit its nuclear activities and allow in international inspectors, in return for the lifting of economic sanctions. 0ur diplomatic correspondent james landale reports. ina run,
8:03 pm
in a run, there is a ritual way of denouncing the united states. and today, they took it of the parliament. burning the us flag and shouting, death to america. the country's supreme leader denounced president trump's decision to abandon the deal that iran struck to curb its nuclear dealfor abandon the deal that iran struck to curb its nuclear deal for lifted sanctions. but he warned that iran would leave the deal as well unless european countries guaranteed their trade. if you can get a guarantee that we could put confidence in, you can continue. if you don't succeed in obtaining a definitive guarantee, andi in obtaining a definitive guarantee, and i really doubt that you can, at that moment, we cannot continue like this. he knows that many in iran believe the nuclear deal never provided the economic benefits that
8:04 pm
we re provided the economic benefits that were promised. and on the streets of tehran, people were worried what the prices would mean for them. translation: the first feeling i got was that i should not stay here any more. even when we did not have sanctions, our economy was terrible, and with this decision i know what will happen. translation: we are living in hope, and we hope our leaders will take decisions to limit the damage to our country. in the commons, the foreign secretary tried to reassure the iranian people, echoing france, germany and china, promising to stand by the deal. written has no intention of walking away. —— britain. instead, we will co—operate with the other parties to ensure that while iran continues to restrict its nuclear programme, then its people will benefit from sanctions relief in accordance with the central bargain of the deal. today, the un watchdog confirmed
8:05 pm
that iran's nuclear facilities were complying with the terms of the deal. but european leaders believe iran must do more to restrict its behaviour in the middle east, and the us must plan how. —— explain how. translation: we know this deal is finding solutions for a limited space of time, that is why we must talk to iran about what happens after that. how can we make sure that there is as a civil and no military nuclear programme? for the skill to survive, britain and its allies must persuade businesses to keep trading with iran despite the risks. they must convince iran that that trade is deal —— valuable, and they have to persuade the us not to enforce those sanctions to harshly. none of that will be easy. but that will not stop supporters of the deal from trying. today, the russian president used moscow's victory
8:06 pm
parade to lobby the israeli prime minister. president emmanuel macron spoke to his iranian counterpart, and there'll be more discussions in london in the coming days. the eu wa nts to london in the coming days. the eu wants to extend its firms from us sanctions, but few expect president trump to bend, because he believes the financial freedom of the nuclear deal allowed a run to fund its hostile behaviour in syria and yemen. he told his cabinet that iran will have to negotiate, or something will have to negotiate, or something will happen. i would advise a run and not the start their nuclear programme. i would advise them very strongly. if they do, there will be very severe consequences. this may not be the first time the us has been denounced on the streets of iran, but it's rare that the echoes have been heard in the capitals of europe. president trump's decision has also impacted the global markets. the price of oil has risen to its highest level since 2014 following his decision to impose sanctions against iran shares in energy companies have received a boost after the cost of brent crude climbed
8:07 pm
up almost 3% today, to just over $77 a barrel. and we'll find out how this story, and many others, are covered in tomorrow's front pages at 10:a0pm this evening in the papers. our guests joining me tonight are jack blanchard, who's the editor of politico's london playbook, and rosamund urwin, the financial services correspondent at the sunday times. president trump has confirmed that north korea has released three american citizens, who had been detained in the country. mr trump said the three men are all on their way home, and that he will meet them when they arrive back on american soil. meanwhile, the us secretary of state mr pompeo has met the north korea leader kimjong—un to lay the groundwork for the historic summit between the two leaders. president trump has tweeted in celebration of the release. he described the freed prisoners as "three wonderful gentlemen that
8:08 pm
everyone is looking so forward to meeting", saying the men seemed to be in good health and were flying home with secretary of state mike pompeo. he added, "good meeting with kim jong—un. date and place set." going back to our main story, european leaders arts fighting to salvage the iran nuclear dear —— deal after president trump opted to allowed of it. thanks much for joining us this evening. some pretty tough rhetoric from donald trump, talking about very serious consequences if iran attempts to resume its nuclear programme? yes, tough rhetoric, but no details at all. he didn't say what those consequences would be, he also said that iran should renegotiate the
8:09 pm
deal, and if it didn't, then something would happen, but he did not say what that would be either. so that leaves us with no further clarity on how he plans to proceed, other than how he talked about having the strongest sanctions ever. again, not entirely clear if he was referring to the snapback of the old sanctions or referring to new ones that would be very punitive. but as far as we that would be very punitive. but as faras we are that would be very punitive. but as far as we are aware, there has been no new strategy articulated, other than scrapping the accord and bringing sanctions back on, and trying to use that to force iran to renegotiate, which sounds really like a recipe for confrontation because the iranians have said they will not reopen the deal. of course the united kingdom, along with france, germany and others have said they will try to stick with that. there clearly entreaties to president trump did not succeed. but is there going to be tension in these relationships if donald trump is issuing sanctions on iran while
8:10 pm
countries like britain are continuing to trade with a?|j countries like britain are continuing to trade with a? i don't see how there can't be tension because there are simply not on the same page, both politically and economically. politically the europeans have said this is the international legal approach, and we're sticking with it. so by implication, the us is the outlier. and economically there will be clashes because it is the european businesses affected. the americans have not done that much business with the iranians, save for a couple of deals, like boeing, but it's really the europeans who have invested in this detente. so now they will be affected by the sanctions because the american sanctions because the american sanctions restrict access to the american financial system —— system for any transactions done with iran, and most transactions do involve some passing through the new york financial system. therefore the european companies are in a bind and the europeans are hoping they will
8:11 pm
get some sort of carveout or exemption, but no indication from washington if that is on the cards, especially with trump talking about the strongest sections ever. so i don't see how this cannot involve greater tensions. to you forjoining us greater tensions. to you forjoining us from washington. —— thank you. bmw is recalling more than 300,000 vehicles in the uk because of potential electrical faults. it follows an investigation by the bbc‘s consumer programme, "watchdog live" which found that the engines of some cars could cut out completely whilst they are being driven. bmw will begin sending letters to owners who are affected within the next few weeks, as our transport correspondent victoria fritz reports. christmas morning, 2016. a man swerved into a tree and was killed on a busy a road in surrey. the reason? he was trying to avoid the bmw ahead that had lost all power due to an electrical fault. the inquest into the death of the man last week revealed that bmw and the driver and vehicle standards agency had both known about this fault for years
8:12 pm
before the fatal crash. in the same month, this man's diesel three series cut out completely while he was driving. i though to myself, if i was driving on the motorway. i had my family in the car, that could've been dangerous. i took it to bmw the next day, they called me to say that they'd found a fault, it looks like the cable had bent out, and no current was passing through to the fuse box. watchdog asked an independent engineer to take a look at the damaged power cable. when we look at the connector, we can see discoloration on the end, which indicates an overheating. it's not fit to do the job it's been produced for. over 300,000 bmw vehicles will not be recalled in britain, that will cover petrol and diesel 1—3 series, as well as the 211 and x1 all manufactured between 2007 and 2011.
8:13 pm
—— will now be recalled. bmw says it will be contacting all affected customers in the next three weeks with advice to how the recall will be carried out. customers can also contact their local retailer directly, who will be able to advise if their car is affected. for years, bmw has been telling us it is the ultimate driving machine, but this recall is ten times bigger than the one it had originally planned, and that's likely to dent consumer confidence in a brand that prides itself on reliability. and its problems don't end there. last november, bmw recalled nearly 700,000 of its three series in the united states, cars that burst into flames whilst parked up and switched off. there has been no safety recall for vehicles here, but bmw is now investigating whether cars in other countries could be affected. victoria fritz, bbc news. i'm joined now by peter campbell, motor industry correspondent for the financial times.
8:14 pm
thank you for coming in to talk to us. thank you for coming in to talk to us. it seems extraordinary that it took a bbc investigation to uncover what is a pretty serious fault? every time they discover fault of their vehicles, they are faced with their vehicles, they are faced with the choice to recall them or not. when they do, they look at how severe the problem would be if that happens, and how likely it is happen in the real world. then they look they have sold those cars in the world and where they might be affected. bmw knew about these false in 2014 and decided at that time to recall ca rs in 2014 and decided at that time to recall cars in america, south africa, and australia. but someone in bmwjudge that these cars in the uk would not likely be affected. that changed at the end of 2016 after a fatality in the uk. bmw recalled 36,000 cars, but it took this bbc investigation to push bmw to push the recall much wider, with more than 300,000 cars involved, and it doesn't look good for bmw. they
8:15 pm
should be noted that they recall ca rs should be noted that they recall cars all the time, and bmw's record in this area historically pretty good. but this did cost the life of one of the drivers, it is potentially dangerous and serious. should they not have recalled this large a number as soon as this problem was discovered ? large a number as soon as this problem was discovered? in hyde state they should have recalled all the cars immediately, but the danger is that come across fault all the time. they have lots of moving parts, and are subject to driving all the time. isco wrong all the time, and the car—makers don't discover those much later, because if people have a problem with the car, they go to the dealer, not the manufacturer. there are lots of recalls all the time that don't get noticed. more than 400 recalls going on in the uk right now, with the us with an average of 12,000. they
8:16 pm
recalled a bunch of cars in the us because they were afraid the steering wheels might fall off. this be beat —— bmw recalled will more than likely be noticed. how much damage will it do to the reputation? in the long run, probably very little. we all remember toyota years ago recalled lots of vehicles for unintended acceleration, and in a recalled vehicles for having buttons on the windows that melted in the heat. in the same year, toyota was still the world's largest car—maker. the bmw -- vw still the world's largest car—maker. the bmw —— vw scandal affected a few million cars years ago, they are still the highest selling car—maker. lots of people tend not to be put off by the recalls, so this is unlikely to hurt bmw in the long run. thank you forjoining us. the headlines on bbc news. president trump warns iran not to restart its nuclear programme after the us withdraws from the deal. three us citizens are on their way

8:24 pm
the government's trying to ensure children get medical help within four weeks, as well as more access to mental health support in schools. but a joint—committee of mps has branded the plans "unambitious", and it concluded that those plans wouldn't provide enough help to children who needed it most. 0ur social affairs correspondent alison holt has been speaking to three young women, whose lives have been affected by mental health issues. i was 13 when i first went to the doctors about it and was told, you have anxiety and depression, and just sort of shuffled out. have anxiety and depression, and just sort of shuffled outlj have anxiety and depression, and just sort of shuffled out. i got put ona just sort of shuffled out. i got put on a waiting list for counselling, but actually the waiting list took so but actually the waiting list took so long that things have gotten a lot worse by that point. they didn't ta ke lot worse by that point. they didn't take me seriously enough, they ushered me out of the room as if i wasn't important and blamed it on being a teenager growing up, and hormones. jenny, cat and time on a struggle with mental health issues
8:25 pm
as children. he asked for help and feel they were let down. for them, the biggest issue highlighted in the report by mps was the government's plans to improve meant —— children's mental health services, happy to happen quickly enough for those who need support now. to say that some areas will have this by 2025 isn't enough, some areas isn't good enough. that long of a time isn't good enough, that is skipping almost a whole generation of young people that need help and support now.|j don't think there's enough support while someone is waiting to be referred. it feels like there so much talking about mental health of the moment, but no action. it's a lot about speaking out and being 0k, feeling like it's ok to reach out for help. and yet we have people reaching out for help and being told that they can't have any help. so the government would say that it is going to transform services for young people with mental health issues? i don't believe it, that's
8:26 pm
my response. there out of touch, they don't understand at all the pressures that young people face today, because they didn't exist when they were in school, leaving school, looking for work. all three of you sound angry. we are angry because this is our lives, and our friends's lives. and we are sick and tired of being told that we are on another six or nine month waiting list before we can get any help. you only get one life, and i think what we we re only get one life, and i think what we were saying earlier about our generation, we have drawn the short straw. i think the government needs to sit up and listen to the young people and the experts, and realise that this plan is not good enough at all. they are now taking part in a new youth access campaign to ensure young people are more involved in designing the services they need. the government rejects the criticisms of its plans and insists there'll be a money —— extra money and staff to provide the right sort
8:27 pm
of support for children when they need it. allison holt, bbc news. well, we can speak now to nicholas scarr about the case of his daughter mimi, who committed suicide three years ago, when she just was 21. she was being treated for an eating disorder, since she was a teenager. critics argue that the system didn't, and still doesn't offer enough support for young vulnerable people, like mimi, after they turn 18. nicholas joins me in the studio. thank you for having me on.“ thank you for having me on. if you could, just tell us about the circumstances of your daughter's death, and where you feel that she could have been helped more?” death, and where you feel that she could have been helped more? i think the first thing to say is that this whole area of mental health is neglected massively. thousands of children are caught up with disorders, and is recommended that there are1.2 disorders, and is recommended that there are 1.2 million people
8:28 pm
offering from eating disorders every year. those women that were interviewed, what they said really resonated with me, because as a pa rent resonated with me, because as a parent trying to get help from a child, we found it impossible. it was an absolutely shocking, shocking mess, the whole system. but she did receive some help for her eating disorder? eventually she was put into priory, she was suffering from eating disorders and associated mental disorders with eating disorders. and while she was under their care, she managed to get out, got drunk, and then ended up in prison and a police cell. it was staggering, you wouldn't trust that you entrust your child with the care of the nhs, and then you hear she ended up in prison. we had to go to the criminal justice ended up in prison. we had to go to the criminaljustice system. and i think a lot of viewers do not realise that the criminaljustice system is housing millions of people
8:29 pm
around the world, tens of thousands in this country that have mental illness. they should not be in prison, they should be in hospitals. i'm very passionate about it, as you can understand, but i am not here speaking for my daughter alone, i'm here on behalf of the thousands of children suffering from eating disorders today and are unable to get any help at all. and when your daughter turned 18, there was a different sort of prop —— set of problems? yes. this is an interesting point, at 18, as a parent, she would lose any jurisdiction we had over a child. we managed to get her section because she was a danger to herself, and within 48 hours of having her section, the health hospital let her out of the hospital, and she'd then took an overdose, and recklessly she wasn't killed. so it was a complete dereliction of duty, and what she said as they said was that there
8:30 pm
sorry, but daughter was 18, you have nothing to do with her care. that was insane. you talked about that situation, do you think that there are specific issues with which the government needs to address? is a lack of provision overall, or are there specific changes in the way there specific changes in the way the system works, which you think might prevent any further loss of life? let's speak to the point that's under discussion today about changing posits to micro—budgets, talking at extending the age to 25, as opposed to an adolescent being treated 18, extending it to 25. that makes sense, eating disorders have a duration of eight years, so if they start at 18, you're talking 23. it is crazy to stop treating aid —— an eating disorder at 18 to three years in. what impact does that have? when you take a fragile girl like my
8:31 pm
daughter out of the specialist care unitand daughter out of the specialist care unit and then put her into a general mental health hospital where she is ina unit mental health hospital where she is in a unit that is full of very, very disturbed people. what does that do? it makes her even more disturbed herself, frightened, and then she tries to take her life, and then tragically she did. but she is only one of the 3000 or so people that killed themselves through eating disorders in the last three years. this government is complacent, jeremy hunt really needs to, on —— come onto the television and start articulating what he is going to do. all i hear is platitudes, all we hear is that they're putting more money in... the nonexempt conference —— nottingham conference is at saturday on 19 may. we would like to see government ministers there. the promise or has said she wants to

former manchester united manager sir alex ferguson is out of intensive care — the club says his family has been overwhelmed with support during his hospital treatment. the lives of some cancer patients are being put at risk because of immigration rules — that's according to specialist doctors. they have told the bbc that the nhs is struggling to recruit health professionals who can identify people at risk of hereditary cancer and other serious conditions. they say workers from abroad are now having problems getting visas because the immigration rules have tightened. our health editor hugh pym reports. she had an nhsjob in a role with growing importance in cancer prevention but steph was not allowed to stay in the uk. she was refused a visa and has had to go back home to new zealand. before she left, she told me how she felt when she got
8:36 pm
news that her visa would not be updated. it was really disappointing to get confirmation. i really enjoy working here and i really enjoy my job and would like to continue doing it. but, unfortunately, i can't without a visa. steph is a genetic counsellor. this involves identifying patients who might be at risk of developing hereditary cancers and other diseases and then discussing their options — including pre—emptive surgery. this leading breast cancer surgeon explained why the work of the genetic counsellor is so important. nhs should have enough number of clinical genetics teams because, if we don't, then there will be women who are at risk, who could potentially be prevented from getting cancer, end up developing cancer and unnecessarily going through major treatment and possibly the worst outcome. genetic medicine experts say there is a
8:37 pm
workforce shortage and visa rules are making things worse. there's a migrant cap on the number of workers in the uk allowed to come in from outside the eu. nurses and some doctors are given priority on the shortage occupation list but many other health professionals, including genetic counsellors, are not on the list and more likely to be turned down. the home office said the list was set following advice from the independent migration advisory committee and kept under regular review. doctors in the field say patient care is being compromised because of recruitment problems. the fact that we are unable to run safe cancer genetic services in this country, i think is awful. unequivocally, waits are getting longer. it varies, depending on hospital trust, and where you are in the uk but we are aware now of at least one trust that is about to have three empty positions. steph‘s employer is holding herjob open in case she is successful with another visa
8:38 pm
application but it may well be that her skills are lost to the nhs. hugh pym, bbc news. let's return to our main story. european leaders are fighting to salvage the iran nuclear deal after president trump's decision to pull out of it. here, the foreign secretary, borisjohnson has told the house of commons that britain will continue to honour the deal and said the world should hold president donald trump to his stated aim of finding a new solution to the iranian nuclear threat. britain has no intention of walking away. instead, we will cooperate with the other parties to ensure that while iran continues to restrict its nuclear programme, then its people will benefit from sanctions relief in accordance with the central bargain of the deal. i cannot yet go into detail on the steps we propose to take, but i hope to make them available
8:39 pm
as soon as possible. and i spoke yesterday to my french and german counterparts. speaking at prime minister's questions, theresa may said she had told president trump that she disagreed with his stance: it is also the view that is shared by chancellor merkel of germany and president macron of france. it is made clear in a joint statement i made clear in a joint statement i made last night with chancellor merkel and with president macron. we except there are other issues in relation to the behaviour of iran that need to be dealt with but ballistic missiles, the question of what would happen with the sunset clause of the end of the deal, and destabilising activity of iran in the region. those issues that need to be addressed and we are working with our european and other allies to dojust that. the german chancellor, angela merkel, expressed regret at president trump's decision. translation: we took note of the us

withdrawal from the iran nuclear deal which is very serious for such a deal. with regret and concern we will be continued to be committed to this treaty and do everything in our power for this treaty and do everything in our powerfor iran this treaty and do everything in our power for iran to it here to the obligations in the future. the chief of the united nations atomic energy watchdog — the iaea — — said the collapse of the deal would be a ‘great loss‘ i believe it represents a significant gain for verification. the iaea now has the most robust verification regime in place in iran. we have had access to all locations that we needed to visit. it isa locations that we needed to visit. it is a significant gain for verification. therefore if it were to fail it means a significant loss. mark fitzpatrick executive director at the international institute

of strategic studies and joins me on the line from washington. thank you very much indeed for joining us. we have heard their european leaders, the iaea all expecting real concern about this. president trump is sounding pretty defiant. yes he is. i mean, he was defiant. yes he is. i mean, he was defiant after having received all of the reasons from the three european leaders why he should not do this and he not only went ahead with it but did not even offer any grey area ora but did not even offer any grey area or a delay the findings and so forth. find someone be imposed until later in the year but he did not even suggest that that was away to still try to bridge some gaps. he was a very still try to bridge some gaps. he was a very defiant. are you concerned about this threat this evening where presidents trumpet is
8:42 pm
warning of very serious consequences we re warning of very serious consequences were iran to try to resume their nuclear programme? were iran to try to resume their nuclear programme ?|j were iran to try to resume their nuclear programme? i am concerned because already there is a growing potential for conflict in the middle east involving iran and israel. with the israeli attacks on iranian missile production sites and other facilities in syria and iran's proxies there. some members of the administration, most polluted national security adviser has spoken of military strikes being the only way to stop iran's programme. he is dismissive of diplomacy. there is some concern that what is being put in play here is a wrap—up to military action. i'm not accusing the truck administration of that, but there is a concern. we are now into a situation where the americans are about to start imposing these
8:43 pm
sanctions within the coming weeks. britain, france, germany and others will continue trading with iran. that is going to shortly lead to ten new tension between the united states and countries like the uk. this decision yesterday dries the deepest wedge in transatlantic relations since the iraq war. back then britain was on the same side as then britain was on the same side as the united states. this time there's not a single european states that sides with the united states. whether or not the trumpet administration imposes fines on european companies that do business with iran and those fines would not actually take place for a few months, but whether or not they do or don't european firms will stop doing business on their own accord because of the danger of not wanting to expose themselves. this is going to expose themselves. this is going to have a detrimental impact on iran's benefits that they get out of
8:44 pm
the deal and iran might then be the one that pulls out following the united states and things get worse. if we look at the other side of the equation, clearly president trump referred to the israeli leader's presentation where he was accusing iran of developing this nuclear programme. do you think that presidents trumpet‘s stance if he gets a license to benjamin netanyahu who has also been making threatening noises about its stance towards iran? i would in those words, i think the israeli leader is and has been very cautious in the steps he is taking. he knows certainly that trump has his back. and that any further actions that israel takes would probably be supported by the united states. the two have been
8:45 pm
working together. the secretary of state went to israel before benjamin netanyahu state went to israel before benjamin neta nyahu had state went to israel before benjamin netanyahu had his dog and pony show displaying those documents and is pulling out of the deal is something benjamin netanyahu pulling out of the deal is something benjamin neta nyahu has pulling out of the deal is something benjamin netanyahu has been advocating for a couple of years now since it was made. as the rhetoric seems to be hardening, but for the time being those inspections are going to continue. yes and we don't know how iran will play this. they have said that they have a few options. the most egregious being pulling out of the nuclear treaty. that's a threat, they are not going to do that. they may ramp up the enrichment level, i expect they will do that and decrease the cooperation with the inspectors and it thing we will be seeing that. they are probably sticking the deal for the time being as long as they can get some economic benefits in trade with

the europeans and other non—american partners, and that the political dynamics in iran don't result in the hardliners dynamics in iran don't result in the ha rdliners just dynamics in iran don't result in the hardliners just crushing the iranian president. there's talk of a potential coup and this action by trump fans that talk in iran. thank you forjoining us. the headlines on bbc news: president trump warns iran not to restart its nuclear programme after the us withdraws from the deal. three us citizens are on their way home after being released from detention in north korea. a couple are found guilty of manslaughter by gross negligence after a seven—year—old girl was killed on a bouncy castle. 11 students at the university of warwick have been suspended for allegedly making threats about rape and using racial slurs on social media.
8:47 pm
the comments were made during a facebook chat among a group of male students. sarah bishop has the story. it's the talk of the campus. a shocking front—page story of student facebook conversation that went way beyond lads chat. i think it's absolutely disgusting especially in this day and age for the youth to be saying these kinds of things and joking about them. the whole thing about advocating sexual assault, that's not free speech because you are advocating violence against someone. this isn't the only one, this isjust the one that has been exposed. i'm100% sure there are other, hopefully not this extreme, but there will be other ones like this to some extent and they will be classed as banter. the story was uncovered by the student newspaper the boar. some of the women referred to any group chat had to talk to them. rightly so they were quite shocked
8:48 pm
and quite repulsed by what they saw in the chat. some of it was very personal stuff. about the individuals involved and i think all of us thought that the individuals who were part of the group chat would never be capable of that sort of thing, but itjust goes to show people can say anything online and they can't get away with that. the facebook chat spoke of raping women in the streets and targeting freshers, the first—year students. many female students we spoke to today said they now feel uneasy. but i've never felt unsafe at warwick, but it does make you feel a bit like you don't know what's going on people's heads. having such a safe campus and have those texts come out is quite shocking, really. and even with investigations ongoing, many said that they thought that the temporary suspensions on the 11th should have been permanent. they deserve to be expelled. they do, they really do. just horrible what they were saying. just way, way over the top for anything you could possibly say. suspension may be not, like, enough. and the president of the university's anti—sexist society
8:49 pm
says the authorities should have taken a tougher line from the very start. expulsion should have been the solution, and for me it's almost a huge contradiction that when the opportunity arose to make a safe space, to expel students that made spaces like this unsafe, the university's response was temporary suspension. i think more could have been done. a university spokesperson said it could not comment until its investigations and any subsequent disciplinary processes were concluded. sarah bishop reporting. a woman who was attacked by a crocodile in zimbabwe just days before she was due to get married says she's lucky to be alive. the 25—year—old was in a canoe with herfiance from kent when the crocodile bit her and tore off one of her arms. but she refused to delay her wedding and the couple were married just days later in a hospital chapel — as shingai nyoka reports. zanele ndlovu on her big day, but it
8:50 pm
wasn't the wedding she had in mind. the two had planned to marry on the 5th of may but took a quick pre—wedding honeymoon. they took the picture before theyjumped on the dinghy. it took us at least... a couple of seconds to realise that this is actually a real crocodile, like this is really happening, yeah. we both got into the water when the boat deflated, then it grabbed my arm and it pulled me down. then when i was getting loose it would grab my arm again and pull me down. so it bit me at least three times on this arm. then here ijust had a little bite here on my thumb, yeah. so my first thought was i was going to die because the water was now bloody. but then after a while just thought, no, let me just fight. so ijust kind of hung in there until the tour guides were able to save me and get me onto their canoe. she was airlifted to a private
8:51 pm
hospital in bulawayo, her right arm amputated, and her left arm, she would discover, was broken, too. but five days later, they pushed ahead with their wedding. she dressed up in the hospital ward and was wheeled to the chapel. hers was the first wedding to be held in this tiny chapel, a place normally reserved for memorial services, on that day, this chapel was transformed into a place of celebration and triumph. the two are making plans to move zanele to britain to live with jamie, a volunteer with the national citizen service. the attack has given them a new appreciation of life. i could so easily have died in there and it is not every day people survive crocodile attacks. so i think i'm just grateful to be alive. so every day i wake up and i'm happy because i'm alive, yeah. it's just been great. madame tussauds has finished

its waxwork of soon—to—be royal bride meghan markle. she joins the rest of the royal family on display at the london attraction and she's been placed next to a re—styled figure of her groom, prince harry. in the waxwork of meghan markle, she's wearing a replica of her engagement ring. the display will open to the public on 19 may — the day of the royal wedding. earlier my colleague simon mccoy met the royal models and the stephen mansfield, principal sculptor at madame tussauds. the challenge is obvious the kings figures to the standards of basically have the time. we have had teams doubling up and because it's megan and harried people have been delighted to do that. it's been a great challenge. presumably she has
8:53 pm
not modelled for this? no, they have been gotten from research. they have more undermined the moment that our figures. it has been worked out from research. it is slightly spooky sitting next to them like this. harry, you have remodeled because there is a facial hair issue. yes, now he has got the beards we have updated him and moved his body around a little bit so they work together really well. they're part ofa together really well. they're part of a huge interactive experience at the attraction as well. i should say you can get right up close to them and people think we have roads and so on and people think we have roads and so on but you can get right up with selfies into arm around them. mind ifido selfies into arm around them. mind if i do that? that's perfectly fine. very few people get away with that. the royalfamily, very few people get away with that. the royal family, they very few people get away with that. the royalfamily, they are very few people get away with that. the royal family, they are a very few people get away with that. the royalfamily, they are a huge draw for you. what about this particular couple at the moment? they will be huge and everybody loves them. everybody is talking
8:54 pm
about the couple and it's going to be great for us and we are expecting a lot more people coming to see them. they formally don't arrive into the actual wedding day, the 19th, but the night before we are having a stag and hen party at the attraction which people can come to. details are on the website. well debbie wearing what they are wearing now is yellow they are. you can get a beer with them and us of interactive entertainment. talk me through the decision of what she is wearing. the ring, obviously you had to be careful with that. that's a bang on replica and it's actually got a little thing to make it flashy. to make a glitter more than it would. it's what all of our figures do now. we have a little bit extra interactive parts about them. we have got eight beating heart in our tom hardy one. itjust makes the
8:55 pm
figures that much more entertaining. ifi figures that much more entertaining. if i have to but the dress can you tell me anything about it?|j if i have to but the dress can you tell me anything about it? i can. it was the one that she wore on the day that they announced their engagement. naturally, the next day they all sold out. you could not get one. our customers managed to track one. our customers managed to track one down of the right size but i don't know where. what about the harry model? how long has that been around? harry model? how long has that been around ? you harry model? how long has that been around? you have reverted a bit. he is the second one. we had one where he was much younger and this one, i think, debuted a few years ago and we have updated it. a few more wrinkles. just around the eyes and smile creases. which he has got and it's fine. we try to keep the figures as updated and relevant as possible. that is what we are about. simon mccoury enjoying his

confrontation with the royal couple. a lorry has overturned on a polish motorway, spilling 24 tonnes of liquid chocolate across six lanes (00v) of traffic in both directions. rescue officials said the chocolate was solidifying as it cooled on the main highway between warsaw and berlin — and would require large amounts of hot water to clear away. all quite a few locals with spoons could possibly do the trick. now the weather is changing, darren is here with us. tell us what's going to happen. the weather is changing, turning cooler across the board already. this cooler air still to arrive and that is coming in from the atlantic. that is going to push its way across the country. the cooler air comes in behind that weather from there and that has been producing some outbreaks of rain and will continue to push its way eastward as well. i of that weather front and the rain was all some
