police investigating the stabbing to death of a man on a train in surrey say they have arrested the man who they believe is their main suspect. the man was detained at an address in the farnham area at around 6am this morning on suspicion of murder. a 27—year—old woman was also arrested on suspicion of assiting an offender. the arrests come after a 51—year—old man was killed on the journey from guildford to london yesterday in front of his 14—year—old son, in what police have described as a "violent killing". the attack happened on the 12.58 service travelling between guildford and waterloo. police said the victim and his teenage son boarded
10:02 am
the train at around 1pm at london road station. after the attack, the suspect left the train at clandon station. officers were then called to horsley station at 1.15pm to reports of a stabbing on a train. the train line between guildford and effingham junction towards london waterloo was blocked for almost seven hours while police responded to the incident. and search for the suspect. assitant chief constable at british transport police sean o'callaghan told our reporter katharine da costa more about how the incident unfolded on the train. clearly people will be very concerned about the style of the attack. what we know so far is that both joined the train at guildford. straightaway, there has been a conversation between the two men. they have continued that conversation for 3—4 minutes.
10:03 am
starting in one carriage and moving through to a second carriage. at some stage then, violence has resulted in this tragic death of the man yesterday afternoon. of course, he had his 14—year—old son with him. there would have been passengers on either of those carriages, people would have seen it. how much information had either never to get from eyewitnesses and the son? as you can imagine, really, really tragic circumstances, the fact that a 14—year—old son has to witness what happened. of course, our thoughts and feelings are with the family in this case. we are supporting the 14—year—old son with experts, specialist trained officers at this time. in terms of witnesses and what they saw, we have been speaking to witnesses at the time and reviewing cctv imaging and that is what has assisted us and led to the arrests. our reporterjames waterhouse is in horsley in surrey for us now. a huge manhunt while it was going on. it ended after several hours overnight. what more do we know about the circumstances in which the
10:04 am
two people were arrested? we know that a male suspect was arrested in a house in farnham, about 20 miles from here. this is hoarsely station where the alarm was first raised. the male suspect, black in his 20s oi’ the male suspect, black in his 20s or 30s was arrested on suspicion of murder. a 27—year—old woman arrested on suspicion of helping an offender. the police are looking in clandon for the murder weapon as well as farnham itself. there is a bit of a police presence here. we have seen a van driver pat. a disturbing attack. —— van drive past. talking about the presence of the teenage boy as his
10:05 am
father was dying. police must be concentrating a lot of effort and trying to reassure travellers about the general safety on the railways. quite. this is a hugely popular commuter route in and out of london from surrey. an affluent county. there is a balance to be struck for officers. this is an incredibly rare incident, they say violent attacks like this happen in as few as one in every i like this happen in as few as one in everyi million journeys. like this happen in as few as one in everyi millionjourneys. there are reassu ra nces everyi millionjourneys. there are reassurances being given in that regard but passengers and customers are still turning up as we speak now. as you were saying earlier, the 14—year—old boy is being given help as well as the family from specialist officers. this investigation, albeit a 17 hour manhunt, is moving at a rapid pace. you would imagine officers would be
10:06 am
satisfied with the way it is going. another thing worth stressing, officers do not believe the attack is terror related. james will bring us more is terror related. james will bring us more about the police investigation through the morning. police in california are responding to a shooting with multiple victims at a bowling alley. shots were fired in torrance, california, early saturday morning. a relatively small city in the los angeles metropolitan area, about 100,000 or so people. that is all we have. understood to have taken place in a bowling alley. we will bring you more on that as $0011 we will bring you more on that as soon as we get it on bbc news.
10:07 am
smokers and problem drinkers who are admitted to hospital in england will be given help to cut down or quit. the measures are part of a new long—term plan aimed at reducing demand on the health service. nhs england says problem drinkers and smokers cost the health service £6 billion every year. joining me now is deborah arnott, chief executive of action on smoking and health — a health charity working to eliminate the harm caused by tobacco use. what is different about this scheme? dedicated funded for services to sick smokers in the nhs. historically, community services provided by public health budget through local authorities which u nfortu nately had through local authorities which unfortunately had their budgets cut in recent years. this is making smokers at a point they are most likely to change their behaviour,

when they happened diagnosed with something. doctors can say, if you can quit smoking this will help improve your health. it cannot reverse the damage. is it better to put the money into preventing? you need both. it will reduce their pressure in the nhs. smokers are i can smile likely to get through, the result in winter bed pressure. a pilot in manchester, between ten and 30,000 beds. it is cost saving. lung cancer, something like 50% of people diagnosed with lung cancer are still smoking. if they quit smoking at that point, they can improve their quality of life and nearly double the life expectancy. it prevents disease and helps recovery. the cost benefit. the difficulty is always, particularly with the nhs pressures,
10:09 am
notwithstanding the additional emergency funding from the cancer early a lwa ys always a difficult thing to convince people of to invest money in the service upfront to get savings later. the college of physicians, hiding in plain sight, shows the savings on reduced admissions to hospital, reduced to re—admissions, shortening the length of stay, actually happening any year one. it is cost saving, not cost causing, evenin is cost saving, not cost causing, even in year one. in england, is the practice elsewhere in the uk we are learning from or is it practice abroad we are learning from? 0r learning from or is it practice abroad we are learning from? or is this a fresh innovation? the ottawa
10:10 am
model is being rolled out in greater manchester. that has been in place for a number of years and properly evaluated. we know this can reduce pressure on the nhs and have an immediate impact. difficult message to get across to smokers, making the direct correlation between what they do, mostly on a daily basis, and the damage it does to them some years down the line. do you get a sense now there is a generational change in attitudes towards that amongst smokers, that younger smokers are perhaps more health—conscious than perhaps more health—conscious than perhaps their older brother younger more health ones —' . .,,-, we" .. flaws.

10:12 am
clues and solving puzzles to make their way out of a locked room. this report from monika plaha has flashing images. what was meant to be a birthday celebration amongst friends turned into an evening of horror. the emergency services were called to this escape room on friday evening after a fire broke out at around 5pm. five girls, all aged 15, locked in a room as part of the game, were all killed in the blaze. a 25—year—old man was seriously injured. the incident happened in poland's northern city of koszalin. its mayor has declared sunday as a day of mourning. officials say they are inspecting over 1000 escape rooms across the country. translation: from tomorrow, all escape rooms, game centres and clubs will undergo fire safety inspections, with special attention paid to evacuation plans, escape routes in this type of location. there should be a moderator in each location able to unlock
10:13 am
the rooms and let people out. we will check this and it will be strictly controlled. poland's president reacted to the news on twitter, writing it was a devastating tragedy that five joyful girls have had life torn away from them. the cause of the fire is not yet known but polish authorities say they will continue to investigate what caused this tragedy. a definative split in the christian orthodox church is about to move a step closer. in constantinople, modern—day istanbul, the head of the global orthodox movement is due to officially recognize ukraine's orthodox church as separate and independent from moscow — ending a relationship that has lasted for centuries. let's get more on this from our correspondent in kiev, jonah fisher. the action in istanbul but the
10:14 am
impact felt in kiev. how important is the church in ukrainian society? the ukrainian 0rthodox is the church in ukrainian society? the ukrainian orthodox church here is very important. it is the main religion here. most of the crane follows the religion. this is the w from constantinople, what ceremeny frem censtentinepte'."wheti nowcall starve? where ceremeny frem censtentinepte'."wheti nowé starve? where the we new cell. lstenbgl. where thewwww --.. wwww wwwww w patriarch, we new cell. lsteneel. where thewwww --.. .-.- .--.. w patriarch, the man who ecumenical patriarch, the man who heads the global will be signing official he will be signing official recognition for ukraine to have its own independent branch of the 0rthodox own independent branch of the orthodox church. that means it will be separate from russia for the first time for hundreds of years. the fact that ukraine's president has gone to istanbul to witness this isa
10:15 am
has gone to istanbul to witness this is a mark of how important people are making this moment. for them,, for many, this is thought of being a final moment of independence. it has been independent for many years but many people are regarding this because they have had this link for many years, this book break this last link —— this will break this last link —— this will break this last link —— this will break this last link with russia. the president is in the middle of an election campaign. political appeal for him. but what is the kind of practical cause of this. why have the two churches been driven apart in this way? a couple of aspects. country to country relations. goes without saying our ball. —— are awful. an
10:16 am
ongoing conflict in eastern ukraine, rebels fighting the ukrainian army. not tenable any longer to have this link whereby effectively moscow controlled all of these parishes inside ukraine. also a realisation partly because of that conflict the mood has changed here in ukraine. before perhaps people tolerated the continuing link to moscow through the russian orthodox church. a sense that has changed. people ready to have a separate church. we are seeing in eastern bill over the next couple of days, the ukrainian 0rthodox couple of days, the ukrainian orthodox church being given international recognition as being separate from russia. international recognition as being separate from russialj international recognition as being separate from russia. i will let you go inside and walmart. —— and warm

10:23 am
this and bowl in a certain area. i was really motivated by them. it is important to learn from them. i am still learning. that's all from the bbc sports centre. ryanair has rya nair has been ryanair has been voted... the worst short—haul airline for the sixth year running, in a survey by the consumer group which. the airline had to cancel scores of flights last summer because of a series of strikes. ryanair has called the research "irrelevant" because it says it's carrying more passengers than ever. here's our transport correspondent tom burridge. ryanair is by far europe's largest low—cost airline. but the consumer group which? said it was by far the worst rated short—haul airline in an annual survey. asked nearly 8000 of its members about recent experiences on 19 different airlines. ryanair‘s overall score was dismal, with the airline's
10:24 am
reputation declining significantly over the past year. 2018 wasn't a good year for ryanair. multiple strikes by its staff across europe meant huge disruption for hundreds of thousands of passengers over the summer. the airlines werejudged on criteria such as boarding, seating, customer service and value for money. thomas cook and wizz air also came out badly. easyjet was somewhere in the middle. and jet2 near the top. ryanair described in the ratings as irrelevant. it said it is now carried 141 million passengers each year. an increase of 78% injust six years. i'm joined now by helen coffee deputy travel editor of the independent. thanks for coming in. ryanair has made something of a reputation out
10:25 am
of not being bothered about bad publicity. 0n the surface, six years running as the worst airline in consumers bought it couldn't get much worse? no, it is pretty damning. as you say, i honestly don't think that they care. i think they would care if that started to affect their revenue. if people started voting with their cash and said, no, iwon't fly started voting with their cash and said, no, i won't fly ryanair. definitely, then they would care. despite this, this is a survey about what consumers think of an airline, what consumers think of an airline, what sort of categories where they asked to vote on? things like the ease of boarding, comfort on the plane. customer service related things, nothing to do with how much the flight would cost. despite that, people are still in a sense buying the tickets and getting on the plains. grumbling but using the
10:26 am
service. what message does that send? is it rather an incentive to stay, maybe we don't need a lot of these frills, we can get away with quite a lot as long as we keep our prices low? adding the survey also shows you can do both. coming in third, jet2, no—frills, same category as ryanair, but people seem to love them. low price, decent service, why not have both? what about the airline that has come top? ryanair at the very bottom but at the top, 81% approval, which is well over double what rya nair the top, 81% approval, which is well over double what ryanair had? not too surprising. it isa
10:27 am
it is a loyalty base for a tiny airline flying to the channel islands. they pretty much leave on time because they are not waiting for wonderful planes so i can see why they would be top aurigny came top. it can be baffling, difficult to make the choice between them. personally, i am motivated by price, most people are. i really like to know actually, is it the cheapest? instead of using a price comparison site that does not include the extras you need, such as taking on a bag! personally, go to each individual site, add everything on i would want and then
10:28 am
compare the price. 0ften, ryanair might not end up being the cheapest if you have put on everything you need. iam not if you have put on everything you need. i am not one of these people that says i will not use ryanair, because they have a monopoly on certain routes. helen from the independent, the deputy travel editor, thank you. a man has been shot dead by armed officers at an address in coventry. west midlands police said that two more men were arrested at the scene, on burnaby road in the north of the city, which remains cordoned off. they have described their operation in the area as "intelligence—led". the incident, which took place at around 6.20 yesterday evening, has been referred to the watchdog the independent 0ffice for police conduct. the man was pronounced dead at the scene. donald trump says that the partial us government shutdown — now entering its third week — could last months or even years. democrats are refusing to agree to the funding the president needs to fulfill his promise of building a wall on the border with mexico. officials from the white house and congress will meet again this afternoon in a further attempt

to end the budget row. joining us now from brussels is ryan heath, political editor at politico europe. thanks for being with us. the action is all happening thousands of miles from you and i bite having an impact already on all the travellers trying to get into the us because they are starting to find their cues are a bit longer because some of the staff are extending up? exactly, a bit of are extending up? exactly, a bit of a gamble if you are a federal worker. you can turn up in the faith will eventually be paid for your hours but no guarantee that will happen. some people really are told to stay home, others use it as a chance to roll the dice and say, hang on, i will probably get back pay anyway, why would i support a president who will gamble with my livelihood like that? 0nce president who will gamble with my livelihood like that? once you get m, livelihood like that? once you get in, you might face closed national

parks, museums and other monuments. the president says he is minded to turnit the president says he is minded to turn it into a national emergency. effectively allowing him to carry on governing, taking the powers back from congress for these purposes, get the federal government open again. is that likely, a credible option? i don't think so. could be used as a band—aid solution to get some construction going on at the southern border with mexico, the department of defence does own a significant amount of land, at the border, he could probably attempt to re—appropriate some of the defilement of dispense fending to begin some military construction. —— department of defence. at the end of
