the former manchester united midfielder michael carrick opens up about his battle with depression. good evening. an inquest has found that the westminster attacker khalid masood was lawfully killed after murdering four pedestrians and a police officer in march last year. the metropolitan police has again apologised for failing to prevent the murder of pc keith palmer, who was stabbed by masood within the grounds of the palace of westminster. his colleague, pc nick carlisle, who was standing next to pc palmer, has told the bbc how he tried to save his friend. from the old bailey, daniel sandford reports. the second phase of last year's
10:02 pm
westminster attack began when a axa smashed into the fence around parliament and the driver, khalid masood, ran through the main gates of the house of commons. he was clearly coming into parliament, and i believe he was coming in with intentions, the sole intention to kill police officers. pc nick carlisle was guarding the gates with pc keith palmer. he saw khalid masood knock his colleague to the ground. he'd known keith palmerfor ten years, and suddenly masood was stabbing his friend with two large knives. action clearly needed to be taken, i had already started running forward, his right hand side was to me, i had lined him up and i was going to strike him with a shoulder barge, and rugby tackle to his right side and put him to the floor. but when i was almost upon him, he seen me come in, and he turned to face me, knives up, and i had to veer away to the side. pc palmer escaped, and both officers
10:03 pm
ran towards parliament, pursued by khalid masood. and already in sight, coming up the cobbles, were two close protection officers with their handguns drawn. there was a warning, there was a volley of shots and they put him to the ground, they shot him. the pistol shots echoed around westminster. this was the momentjust after the officers opened fire, pc carlisle can be seen just to their left, but then he stepped forward again, to deal with khalid masood. to prevent him getting back into the fight, i got forward and handcuffed him in the rear, making sure if he had a detonator that it couldn't be used. so you handcuffed him, even though you were worried that he might be wearing a suicide vest. yeah, to take him out of the fight. the inquest jury found today that khalid masood was lawfully killed. and the chief coroner said the then acting commissioner of the metropolitan police, sir craig mackey, who saw the attack and was driven out of the gates seconds afterwards, had acted properly.
10:04 pm
his force dismissed recent criticism of him. there is nothing that craig could have done to have stopped masood or to have saved pc palmer or any others from being injured. craig was in a car, accompanied by two civilian staff members. neither he nor the two civilian staff had any protective equipment with them. pc carlisle, seen here bottom left, went on to help in the effort to save his injured colleague, but pc palmer died, protecting parliament. daniel sandford, bbc news. a student and drill rapper from london has been sent to prison for seven years, for trafficking drugs into barrow—in—furness in cumbria. daniel olaloko was jailed alongside peter adebayo. both were part of a so—called county lines gang, where city gangs use addicts in smaller towns and rural areas to deal drugs for them. an unprecedented 15 people have died from overdoses in barrow since december. our social affairs correspondent,
10:05 pm
michael buchanan, reports. like many teenage boys, he imagined what it would be like to be a criminal. his videos glorified i’ , criminal. his videos glorified weaponry, and misogyny. pursuing such a fantasy, however, usually ends in failure. as we watched don, daniel loco was arrested in halls of residence at the halls of the university of central lancashire. in his room, police found a sword, knives, illegal drugs, and hundreds of pounds. the 19—year—old pharmacology student was today sentenced to seven years in prison
10:06 pm
after supplying guilty to supplying heroin and crack cocaine, a key link ina supply heroin and crack cocaine, a key link in a supply chain spanning 300 miles from london to barrow—in—furness. as we reported earlier this year, the town is plagued by drug dealers and their deadly consequences. there have been an unprecedented 15 drug—related deaths since september. 0ne drug—related deaths since september. one of the key breakthroughs in this case was when police arrested abel robel 17—year—old girl in one of these flats. she had been sent from london to barrow, to sell drugs. when they searched her they found more than 50 wraps off heroin and crack cocaine inserted into her. alongside him, another man, peter adarabioyo, was also sentenced to seven adarabioyo, was also sentenced to seve n years adarabioyo, was also sentenced to seven years in prison. they were in the upper echelons of this organised crime groups or these convictions and the sentences to date are a real positive boost for us on the community. as quickly as any particular dealers are jailed, however, more head to barrow. and
10:07 pm
over the past year increasingly they come from the capital. the main ones haven't been touched, they are still booming, their businesses there. this local producer, who wishes to remain anonymous for his own safety, told me londoners have taken over. they are willing to flash off weapons and weaponry of automatic calibre as a gun instead of a knife. they've brought guns in. this dilapidated block of flats has long offered rich pickings for drug dealers. but this flat will open shortly as a community centre. so, we're only weeks away from this place opening? counsellors like dave, who once himself sold illegal drugs in barrow, will offer recovery and rehabilitation. i've been on the other end, i've sat in the prison cells, if i've been in the grips, i've overdosed. it's my passion and my desire to say, look, i've got this, you can have this.
10:08 pm
so you came to barrow from liverpool to sell drugs, to sell misery on one level... mm—hm. and now you've come back because... to bring hope, yeah. you start getting a bit fidgety... when we met bobby in april, hope was in short supply. you know the chances of you reaching old age are very slim. i know, it's pretty limited. very limited, in fact. but this is bobby now. seeing himself on tv, drug—addled and dispirited, appalled him. he's been clean since 3rd july. ijust don't want to become a statistic, i want to be able to live my life, enjoy what's left of it, because you only get one life. i'm so glad i'm not doing that no more. i am really, really happy not to be in that world. different bobby. yeah. yeah, completely. bobby's success is due to courage, commitment and community. if barrow can bottle his resolve, fewer criminals will successfully prey on its most vulnerable
10:09 pm
residents. michael buchanan, bbc news, barrow—in—furness. a delegation from saudi arabia has arrived in turkey. they claim they are there to investigate the disappearance of the saudi journalist and government critic, jamal khashoggi. allegations he was murdered inside the saudi consulate in istanbul have been dismissed by riyadh as "baseless". mark lowen is in istanbulfor us. reports are coming out of turkey about new evidence about what happened to mr khashoggi. yeah, i've been told by a source close to the turkish investigation that turkey has what it calls documented evidence that jamal khashoggi was killed inside the saudi consulates ten days ago, and that while the official line in ankara remains that he is missing, that turkey knows for sure that he was killed. now that tallies with other media reports that turkish
10:10 pm
intelligence now has audio and video recordings to show that jamal khashoggi, this high profile saudi journalist, was interrogated, tortured and murdered inside the saudi consulates. and yet despite all of that, today, turkey welcomed in these saudi officials, part of a saudi turkeyjoint investigation enquiry at riyadh's request. why? it's because the turkish government is treading carefully so as not to blow apart the diplomatic relationship at this stage, while putting evermore increasing pressure on the saudis, winning western support for its case, by leaking evermore incriminating evidence through to the media. the saudis still deny all the allegations, but i think it's becoming increasingly clear that a horror story unfolded here in this leafy district of istanbul. mark lowen in istanbul, thank you. with the budget just over two weeks away, the chancellor has opened the door to tax rises, saying the government "may have to raise a little more tax" to pay for the nhs. philip hammond has also told the bbc that britain could see an economic boost if it successfully negotiates
10:11 pm
a brexit deal with the european union. 0ur economics editor, kamal ahmed, reports from bali, where the imf is meeting. hello, chancellor, very good to see you... in just over two weeks' time, you deliver the budget. you've got high levels of debt, you've got the risk to the economy from the brexit process, and you have a prime minister saying that austerity is over. can i start with that austerity issue? when the prime minister says that austerity is over, what does that mean? well, what the prime minister was saying was that when we get a good dealfrom our negotiations with the european union, then as well as being able to continue reducing our debt, which is very important for the future, we will also be able to provide more support for our public services. look, we've made a very large commitment to the nhs, because we know that it is the british people's number one priority. by ‘23—‘21i, we will be putting an extra £20.5 billion a year into the nhs in england alone in real terms — and that
10:12 pm
has to be paid for. does that commitment to the nhs trump any manifesto promise to cut taxes? we've said that we may have to raise a little more tax in order to support the nhs and deliver on our pledge. but there are many ways in which we can do that. it's important that we do it in a way that minimises any negative impact on the economy, minimises the effect on people. i am a low tax tory. chancellor, on brexit, some more positive noises, possibly, from the government in britain and also the rest of the european union — are you feeling more optimistic that there will be a brexit deal? and if there is, could there be some form of dividend for the uk economy? what has happened over the last week, ten days, is that there has been a measurable change in pace. there's a real sense now of engagement from both sides, of shared enterprise in trying to solve a problem, rather than posturing towards each other.
10:13 pm
so, if we are able to get to a good dealfor britain, as we leave the european union, i believe there will be a dividend, a deal dividend for us, of higher economic growth and better outcomes than were otherwise anticipated. whatever the chancellor's positive words on a deal dividend, what is clear is that austerity is still with us today. public service cuts, benefit cuts, are ahead. the chancellor calls himself a low—tax tory. but he's left the door open to tax rises in the budget in two weeks' time. kamal ahmed, bbc news. the government has further outlined what could happen if we leave the eu without a deal — as part of its contingency planning. eurostar might be suspended and tickets no longer valid, and the electricity supply to northern ireland could be disrupted. 0ur deputy political editor john pienaar reports. the picture's building and it's not pretty.
10:14 pm
but brexit with no eu deal could disrupt british life and british business, according to government warnings. 106 now and counting. the latest? could the lights go out in northern ireland? energy suppliers would need protection if eu rules suddenly fall away. could the eurostar keep running? international rail deals would have to be replaced — maybe quickly. and trade — notjust with the eu, but a0 odd trade deals with other countries. no deal with them could mean more costs, ta riffs and checks on business. but theresa may has a big problem now. some ministers fear ending up bound by eu customs laws, unable to strike trade deals after any transition time, if no brexit trade agreement is ready by then. her own brexit secretary is one of them. it would have to be finite, it would have to be short and it would have to be, i think, time limited, in order for it to be supported here.
10:15 pm
what we cannot do is see the united kingdom locked in via the back door to a customs union arrangement which would leave us in indefinite limbo. that would not be leaving the eu. no more resignations — yet. i do think we have to give the prime minister the opportunity to be able to do a good deal for the united kingdom, something that she's absolutely determined to do. brexiteer ministers are staying loyal. at least in public. the immediate barrier to progress is here. all sides say no hard irish border after brexit, but some checks between northern ireland and the mainland are on the table, so the democratic unionists are threatening to turn on mrs may. the one red line in relation to the united kingdom is one that we will stand by, come what may. it's very important for us that we keep the constitutional integrity of the united kingdom, but also the economic integrity. mrs may is trying to bridge the divisions, downing street saying she will never allow britain to be trapped by eu customs laws permanently. brussels want to say the uk will follow those rules until a fully fledged trade deal
10:16 pm
is in place. so another tough cabinet meeting next week with the possibility of more resignations, then another difficult eu summit. could mrs may console herself with the thought that life couldn't get any tougher? not really. it could, and it probably will. john pienaar bbc news, downing street. so another tough cabinet meeting next week with the possibility of more resignations, then another difficult eu summit. the head of the company at the centre of the controversy about stock piled medical waste has hit back against claims of mismanagement. speaking for the first time garry pettigrew, of health care environmental services, told the bbc that bodyparts were not stored any longer than they should have been. the company has been stripped of some nhs contracts after hundreds of tonnes of clinical waste piled up at its sites. mr pettigrew was speaking to our health editor, hugh pym. he's the boss at the centre of a national row over hospital waste. garry pettigrew‘s company has lost disposable contracts with some hospitals in england because he was storing too much waste at his sites, but he claimed to me in some cases, medical waste was now not being handled safely.
10:17 pm
i know just now that waste is being stored in hospitals in shipping containers, and shipping containers are being lined with black liners, to stop liquids, whatever else, coming out of this, that's been put into skips. the department of health denied this, and said there were strong governance to ensure safe disposal of waste and no gap in service provision. mr pettigrew says his company had a backlog of medical waste because of a lack of incinerators around the uk to burn it. in a statement today, the regulator, the environment agency said: in e—mails seen by the bbc, mr pettigrew wrote to the agency in may, advising: an official responded:
10:18 pm
the agency said today planned shutdowns did sometimes occur for maintenance. the company says it has been vilified for providing an excellent service. what do you say to someone who have said that there are body parts being stored at your sites, and it's unhygienic, and it's not safe? none of that is true. every single part people refer to there is dealt with securely, professionally, and again, any anatomical waste would be stored in fridges, and at the same time prioritised for outward bound. in response to allegations from former staff that there had been a range of practices at sites which might be worrying to the public, the boss said they operated in line with official permits. hugh pym, bbc news. patisserie valerie's chairman has said it will be "business as normal" after securing a rescue deal, saving the cafe chain and almost 3,000 jobs. the company's finance chief had been arrested on suspicion of fraud, and was later released on bail. earlier this week, the firm said it had discovered significant irregularities in its accounts.
10:19 pm
princess eugenie has married jack brooksbank at st george's chapel in windsor. the royal family and celebrities were among 850 guests at the ceremony. eugenie, the ninth in line to the throne, was given away by her father, prince andrew, watched by her grandmother, the queen, and by her mother, sarah ferguson. nicholas witchell reports. hold on to your hats, it's another royal wedding — though this was one not quite in the same league at harry and meghan's. as the guests, celebrities among them, struggled through the autumn winds to st george's chapel, the sussexes slipped in quietly through a side door, more grateful than ever, perhaps, that their day had been one of spring sunshine. and then three guesses who the next arrival was. low—key was never quite sarah ferguson's way. the mother of the bride made an exuberant entrance outside the chapel. there are those within the royal family who can't forget
10:20 pm
the embarrassments she's caused over the years, but this was the yorks' day and the duchess was clearly delighted to be part of the family again. the queen was there for the wedding of one of her granddaughters, and alongside her the duke of edinburgh, a rare appearance by him, at the age of 97. they took their places just behind the duchess of york, the first time it's thought that the duke of edinburgh has been in such close proximity to his erstwhile daughter—in—law for 26 years. it was time for the bride. princess eugenie, ninth in line to the throne, arrived with her father, the duke of york. waiting inside the chapel, the groom, jack brooksbank, a drinks company manager. the bride joined him at the altar, where they exchanged their vows. i, eugenie victoria helena...
10:21 pm
take thee, jack christopher stamp... to my wedded husband. 0n the steps of the chapel, there was a kiss. and then a carriage ride through windsor. concerns have been expressed about the cost of providing security. in the event, it was a much smaller occasion than the sussexes' weeding, with a shorter route, and crowds which were respectable, rather than large. will that have mattered to the couple at the centre of it all? 0ne assumes not. nicholas witchell, bbc news. usain bolt has scored his first two goals for a professional football team. the hundred meter world record holder scored for the australian side central coast mariners in a preseason friendly. he is hoping that his performance will pave a way for a professional contract as a football player for the coming season. football now and both engalnd and northern ireland have been tonight both engalnd
10:22 pm
and northern ireland have been in action in the uefa nations cup. england had to play in a totally empty stadium after croatia were punished after a swastika was marked on their pitch before a match in 2015. they were hoping to gain revenge for their defeat in the world cup semi—finals. northern ireland were in action away to austria. 0ur sports correspondent andy swiss reports. for england's most intrepid fans the ultimate challenge, could they find a way of seeing a game happening behind closed doors? croatia are serving a stadium ban, and when the players eventually emerged with just a few officials and media in the stadium, the quiet was almost surreal. but up on a nearby hill, the england fans had found their vantage point, not much of one perhaps but it wasn't much of a first half. dyer hitting the post. all all that had to shout about. after the break though, what a
10:23 pm
difference. harry kane's nearest of misses sparked a string of chances but they couldn't take them, marcus rashford particularly culpable and it proved costly. croatia held out for a draw it proved costly. croatia held out fora draw in it proved costly. croatia held out for a draw in the silence. for england no revenge for their recent world cup defeat, they had their chances, but this was a stalemate, in the strangest of atmospheres. meanwhile there was disappointment for northern ireland, as they were beaten i—0 for northern ireland, as they were beaten 1—0 by austria, for them as well, a night of footballing frustration. andy swiss, bbc news. the story of how one british record label established jamaican reggae in britain and influenced some of the biggest names in punk and pop will be premiered tonight. rudeboy — the story of trojan records — marks the 50th anniversary by retracing the label's role in breaking cultural barriers with artists likejimmy cliff and desmond dekker. colleen harris reports. music: israelites — desmond dekker & the aces.
10:24 pm
the steady sound of jamaican reggae. introduced to britain by trojan records, the label secured dozens of hit songs. rudeboy: the story of trojan records, directed by nick jack davis, retraces the label's influence on the uk council estates, inspiring a new generation of british youths. you couldn't go to white clubs, simple. so, natural thing, you make your own fun. bringing the story to the contemporary world and showing why it is important, and it is important because music and fashion with it can make massive change. for all of us, it was like, let's make a positive story about immigration, and that was the heart of it. and then music and getting to the stories, which are brilliant. new migrants from the caribbean brought their music with them but there was a struggle to get it played so the importance of djs
10:25 pm
and their sound systems was crucial. we met a lot of resistance in the mainstream of our reggae music. none of the clubs in england and london would allow us to come and play reggae music. so, people would clear out their house, and we would go into the house and string up into a room, and then we would have a party. most of our parties are a multiracial thing. known as the motown of reggae, trojan records has left a musical and cultural legacy. these were children of the windrush, influencing generations of musicians, like the clash, culture club and madness, with the sounds that they produced. trojan's hits appealed to the white working—class skin heads, the fashion kind, not the fascist kind, that helped catapult the music into the charts. while the politicians were playing on the fears of the old folk, it was trojan's catalogue that united the youth. black and white, on the
10:26 pm
dancefloors, the playground, and on the streets. so, it was really music as a kind of tool for social change. trojan records folded in 1975, but its legacy in british culture lives on. that's all from us tonight. here on bbc one it's time for the news where you are. goodnight. hello and welcome to sportsday — i'm lizzie greenwood—hughes, the headlines tonight: quiet in more ways than one. england, croatia the re—match — ends in a nil—nil draw in the nations league. marko arnautovic strikies
10:27 pm
in vienna as northern ireland are beaten by austria, their second defeat of the campaign. and leinster get their european cup title defence off to the best possible start with a near 50 point thrashing of wasps. so lots to get through tonight, we're starting with football and england and northern ireland's second games in their uefa nations league campaigns. england endured an eerily silent goalless draw with croatia — played behind closed doors in rijeka due to the uefa ban on croatian home support. meanwhile northern ireland were beaten i—nil by austria in vienna. nick parrot rounds—up the action. from the greatest stage, to the
10:28 pm
quietest. almost 80,000 fans were at the world cup semifinal between england and croatia. three months later there were —— there were officially none. some always find a way to see their side, though. it was an experience they are unlikely to forget, but not for footballing reasons. with no atmosphere both teens looked flat, only the host could muster a shot on target in the first half. that pose more of a threat than marcus rashford could. twice in the space of three minutes the manchester united forward found himself with a goal at his mercy, at least he was spared howls of derision. harry kane's finishing was far better, and fortunately for england he was offside. with a quarter of an hour to gojaden made his much—anticipated debut, a super sub for breezy adornment he cut doucoure asia, had heard it —— harry
10:29 pm
kane and where ross barkley was england might have one. and said they had to settle for the draw. worth the trip forjaden, less for the fans. those who followed northern ireland to vienna saw a much better spectacle but a more disappointing result. mcnair had their only shot on target, but there was no stomping marco at the westin strecker‘s rich vein of ore continued to give austria the victory. the former manchester united midfielder michael carrick says his part in united's champions league final defeat in 2009 led to a year long spell of depression. carrick, who won five league titles as a player, said feelings of anxiety became so bad he couldn't face being away from home whilst playing with england and made him consider early retirement. he also says since speaking about it, he's been contacted by other players who have also suffered with depression. the champions league, ijust for whatever reason cannot it off. i
10:30 pm
started kind of thinking negatively about the game. i should have done that, which i had always done after a game fora that, which i had always done after a game for a few days if we lost, beating yourself up, why did i do that? but it lasted longer and was no bawling and you start to down yourself and am i good enough to be at the very top, even though we had won the year before it was just developing. i blocked it out. i don't know why i had those feelings for so long. ijust could not shake it off, i could not snap out of it and probably i was in that frame of mind fora and probably i was in that frame of mind for a good year, maybe 18 months after that. rugby union's european champions cup got underway tonight and holders leinster began their title defence with a near perfect display over wasps in dublin. leinster scored 8 tries in all at the rds. sean cronin sprinting over for their first in the 6th minute. new zealanderjames lowe continued his fine form with two,
