after a light aircraft carrying their latest signing disappeared over the english channel last night. emiliano sala, who's 28 and from argentina, was due to spend his first day at cardiff today. the single—engine piper malibu plane was on its way from france to cardiff when it disappeared from radar yesterday evening off the island of alderney. a search is under way, but so far no trace of the plane has been found. our sport correspondent joe wilson has more. emiliano sala is still missing. with every passing hour, viewers can only grow that he and the pilot on the plane bringing him to britain are dead. he became cardiff city's record signing. he'd already travelled to wales to start something new in his career. we walk him around the grounds, and
5:03 pm
he was absolutely ready to give it a 90, he was absolutely ready to give it a go, and we knew him then, and we really feeling dumb i feel sad to hear of this news, because we have met such a great person. born in argentina, sala built his football career in france, especially at nantes, where he had a strong reputation as a goal—scorer. he'd travelled back to france to say goodbye to his team—mates. this photo posted yesterday afternoon on sala's twitter account is captioned, "the last goodbye". at 7:15 last night, a light aircraft left nantes, bound for britain. it never arrived. sala was on board with the pilot.
5:04 pm
searches have continued near the channel islands. no sightings. we have searched over 1000 square miles of sea by day and night, the search continues with assets from france and the uk, so far nothing has been seen, but we carry on expanding area out. these pictures give an indication of emiliano sala's reputation in french football. nantes have postponed their next game, scheduled to be played tomorrow. between two football clubs, a young man at the peak of his career, trying to live his dream. joe wilson, bbc news. in a moment, we'll be speaking to our reporter john fernandez in guernsey. but first to paul heaney, who's outside the cardiff city stadium. what have the club been saying? what is the latest from there? the club gave a statement within the last few
5:05 pm
hours, in which it says its owner, its chairman and all the staff are thinking of emiliano sala's family at this time, and of course the pilot of the aircraft as well, both of whom are missing. it says it has cancelled training for today, it made that decision earlier this morning, because they were expecting their new record signing to join them for the first time today. just to my right fans have started laying scarves and flowers in tribute, really, to a player they were expecting to arrive at their club last night. but as we have been hearing, unfortunately that flight, that plane never arrived. tim hartley is a member of the cardiff city supporters trust, a very sad day today, what have fans been saying to you? it is terrible news,,
5:06 pm
this was going to be our great hope of the season, a proven goal—scorer who wanted to play for cardiff city, a record signing to keep us in the premier league. pack all of that, we are talking about the death of a young man at the peak of his career, and the pilot as well. it is brilliantly fans are coming together, they are paying tribute to someone together, they are paying tribute to someone that they never saw playing football, but we come together as a foot ball clu b football, but we come together as a football club because we care about each other, and our thoughts are not about football but the family and friends of this young man. it feels like there has been an about turn in emotion from excitement and anticipation, of seeing a star striker signed, breaking your club's record, to hearing this troubling news this morning — what else have people be sent you my well, yes, social media, everyone hasjust said what a terrible, terrible tragedy this is. no—one is looking at the
5:07 pm
table of the premier league this evening at all, we are just saying, how could this have happened and how terribly sad it is. i think that is what people will take away from this, just how sad it is, you know? and there is nothing we can do, we don't know, goodness knows what his family are going through, not being able to know one way or the other, but this club, as i say, will pull together. a fitting tribute, i'm sure, training was cancelled, i understand nantes have cancelled their match on wednesday night as well, and i think, again, a terrible tragedy, we must be thinking about the family. it puts things into context, certainly, thank you for your time this evening. the club say they are praying for some positive news, but we are due to hear imminently from the search and rescue teams as to whether the search will continue overnight, or it will stop and continue tomorrow at first light. 0k, paul, thank you for that, paul heaney in cardiff. let's talk now to john
5:08 pm
for that, paul heaney in cardiff. let's talk now tojohn fernandez, who was in guernsey for us, john, hearing a little bit as to whether or not the search and rescue operation is going to continue into the night. have you got any more news on that? yes, as we were told a little bit earlier today by captain david barker comedy guernsey harbour master, coordinating the operation to find this downed aircraft behind me, thejoint emergency to find this downed aircraft behind me, the joint emergency can services control centre, he says a decision will be taken at sunset, they will come to a decision as to whether to continue the search in the next 30 minutes. guernsey police have released a statement saying that during the course of the 15 hour search, using multiple sea and air assets, they found a number of floating objects in the sea, we have been unable to confirm whether they are from the missing aircraft. they say they have found no sign of those who were on board, and planes and a lifeboat are still searching. we
5:09 pm
have heard that 1155 square miles of the sea at the north of alderney, in a part of the sea which is called the casquettes, has been searched by these assets, but so far no sign. we arejust these assets, but so far no sign. we are just hearing that the search will be suspended for the evening, continuing possibly at first light in the morning, but we are hearing in the morning, but we are hearing in the last couple of seconds, it is actually from a tweet from guernsey police, suggesting that the search and rescue has been suspended for now. but there has, john, been an attempt to search for these plain in some of the airfields in the area, perhaps it touched down somewhere? well, that was something that david barker committee harbour master, did say earlier. he said all avenues are available, there was no mayday call
5:10 pm
from the plane, so they were not sure whether it went down. they are treating that is the most likely cause, but they have been calling different airfields around the area that it could have got to do ask whether a plane matching the description of this piper malibu which left nantes yesterday have touched down in that area. now, there was cause have gone, you know, they have not turned up anything, so at the moment they are assuming that the plane is in that area, and as you say, the search should be continuing tomorrow morning. you are, ok, continuing tomorrow morning. you are, 0k,john, thank continuing tomorrow morning. you are, ok, john, thank you for that from guernsey. just to remind you of the breaking news in the last three orfour minutes from the breaking news in the last three or four minutes from guernsey police, that the search for that missing single engine plane containing the football emiliano sala, just signed by cardiff city from nantes, on its way to cardiff from nantes, on its way to cardiff from nantes, on its way to cardiff from nantes today, and we assume the pilot, there was one other person on board the plane, the search for the
5:11 pm
plane which disappeared from radar last night, has now been suspended, and we assume will resume again at first light tomorrow morning. and in the last ten or 15 minutes or so, the chain patisserie valerie has collapsed into administration. now, the firm had been embroiled in an accounting scandal and was close to colla pse accounting scandal and was close to collapse last year after irregularities were discovered in the compa ny‘s books. irregularities were discovered in the company's books. the firm had beenin the company's books. the firm had been in talks over the last few months with lenders, including hsbc and barclays, to try to extend agreements over the firm's dads, which expired just last week, so clearly those talks have not gone as well as the firm had hoped, and now it seems that the firm has collapsed into administration. so the cake chain patisserie valerie has collapsed into administration with the failure of talks to extend
5:12 pm
credit over its debts in the last few weeks. mps opposed to theresa may's withdrawal deal with the eu have been putting forward their own brexit proposals. they include a labour party motion, saying mps should be able to vote on whether there should be a second referendum, and another proposal allowing a delay to brexit. the cabinet has been meeting today, and it's understood some senior ministers have been pressing for a no—deal brexit to be ruled out. mps are to vote again on theresa may's proposals in a week's time. here's our political correspondent iain watson. do you think your colleagues should be permitted the chance to vote on a no—deal brexit? most members of theresa may's cabinet remained tight—lipped when asked what their colleagues would be willing to do to avoid leaving the eu without a deal. do you think there will be resignations? privately, some ministers are prepared to leave office unless, at some stage, the prime minister rules out no deal. anyone in that house who wants to avoid no—deal
5:13 pm
as passionately as i do, wants to deliver brexit as much as i do, and wants to avoid a people's referendum, which i think would be another extension of all of these tough conversations, needs to come together to support the deal. but behind the scenes, work and pensions secretary amber rudd is pressing theresa may to allow ministers to vote for a backbench bill that aims to avoid no—deal without them having to walk out of government. that bill has been put forward by labour's yvette cooper, but backed by former conservative cabinet ministers, too. we are working on legislation to say that if the government can't get an agreement with the commons by the end of february, they must ask the eu for an extension of our departure, we are suggesting until the end of 2019. the official opposition has set out its own plan. labour wants mps to vote on all options that would avoid no—deal, including its preferred outcome
5:14 pm
of a permanent customs union with the eu. and the party wants mps to consider whether to hold a referendum on any brexit deal. this was welcomed by some of those campaigning for a new public vote. i think it's a welcome step in the right direction. it doesn't take us to exactly where i want to be, but i think it's part of the process that will get us to that point. but should she be sounding quite so positive? but i think it's part of the process that will get us to that point. many of labour's grassroots members want a new referendum if they can't get an early election. but the party's plan falls short of that and doesn't commit the leadership to a new public vote, only for pushing for parliamentary time to discuss it. leading labour figures say they are proceeding with caution. this is a divisive issue for all parties, particularly the conservatives and labour, where we have mps who are against a people's vote for various reasons, and people in favour of it, so we would very carefully determine our position at the time. 0urjob is to bring as many people
5:15 pm
together as we possibly can, and that really is one option of many, and our priority always has been to secure a deal. the search for a brexit deal continues, but it has been straining traditional party loyalties almost to destruction. 0ur chief political correspondent vicki young is at westminster. vicki, the bottom line about today is that, after last week's shellacking for the prime minister and her brexit deal, ministers, or rather members of parliament, are putting forward their ideas as to how these brexit deal should move forward. yeah, i mean, this is the moment that they have two indicate what it is that they would like to happen, not necessarily what they are against, but what they would put
5:16 pm
in its place, and that is still a tricky problem for a lot of mps. if you look at the amendments, and we do not know which ones will be selected until next tuesday, they may not all be selected, there may not be a vote on all of them, but there is definitely a theme — tried to stop us leaving the eu with no deal at all. so there are various groupings, cross—party amendments, some coming from the tories, some coming from labour, all trying to rule out that scenario. i am sure the prime minister would say there is one good way to do that, by getting behind my deal, and that is why she is still looking at that plan as the best way to do all of why she is still looking at that plan now, best way to do all of why she is still looking at that plan now, these way to do all of why she is still looking at that plan now, these way to do all fifééfiéfil4§hf n why she is still looking at that plan now, these vaj try do all efééi§;f§;s;:w n in. the 3952‘s that the? tie ts. is its; ’ ' " ' tried ih the eee that thee the te tie it; ’ ' " ' tried to ih the eee that thee tre te tie it; ’ ' " ' tried to make sure that some tried to make sure that backbench mps can decide what the business is going to be in the house of commons, which would be incredibly unusual. yvette cooper is
5:17 pm
probably the most ambitious, by saying she would want to give time to stop i know the scenario for the time being because it would actually delay article 50. —— to stop a no—deal scenario. the question is whetherjeremy corbyn gets behind that, because the risk is that the prime minister can turn around and say, you are backing something which delays brexit, is that where you wa nt to delays brexit, is that where you want to be? it is a tricky question for the prime minister, and the opposition as well, and also to do with whether they want to hold another referendum or not. labour's amendment asks about consulting the public, is that cast—iron suggesting that the party is backing a second referendum, and if it is, does it mean that remain will be on that ballot? it is not as clear as that.
5:18 pm
what was interesting is that those who are pushing for another referendum date seized on it to say that, yes, this is a big move towards labour backing another referendum, but it wasn't quite as clear as that, and if you speak to people injeremy corbyn's office, it is not so much that, what they are saying is that they are guaranteed to make the time for parliament to discuss it. that is not the same as, again, labourandjoe discuss it. that is not the same as, again, labour and joe cole, the front bench, central labour mps, we are going to swing behind another referendum. jeremy corbyn would argue, iam referendum. jeremy corbyn would argue, i am sure, that this is a problem of the government's making, that it problem of the government's making, thatitis problem of the government's making, that it is up to them to sort it out, so far as he is now pushing for his vision of a permanent customs union, a close single market relationship, keeping open the possibility, but no more than that,
5:19 pm
of another referendum. 0k, vicki, thank you. the headlines on bbc news. police in guernsey have suspended their search for a missing plane which was carrying 28—year—old argentinian footballer emiliano sala. the aircraft disappeared over the channel yesterday evening. mps opposed to theresa may's brexit deal put forward their alternatives. labour is calling for a vote on options including another referendum. and uk employment reaches a record high, with more than 32.5 million people in work. elsewhere in sport, huddersfield's new manager, yann saivet maybe following the same path as david wagner, but the new man says he is is own england rugby welcome jonathanjoseph is own england rugby welcome jonathan joseph back to is own england rugby welcome jonathanjoseph back to the squad as! to portugal tomorrow they head to portugal tomorrow for their six nations preparations. and ;. 777%fl "' ' is l v”%" "' '

5:21 pm
jobs went to people who were not previously looking, students or long term sick. what we are not seeing in these figures is any sign of an impact from, say, brexit uncertainty, but that kind of impact may have happened further out and could still filter into the figures in the next few months. but wages, you mentioned them, the fastest growth for ten years in november, replicating what we saw in october, 3.3%, higher than a year previously, but in actualfact 3.3%, higher than a year previously, but in actual fact in the last few months wages are again struggling to keep up with the cost of living, so if you look back to where we were prior to the financial crisis, we are still worse off by an average of £20 per week compared to where we we re £20 per week compared to where we were then in real terms. £20 per week compared to where we were then in realterms. we £20 per week compared to where we were then in real terms. we started the programme at five o'clock with the programme at five o'clock with the breaking news on patisserie valerie, it has gone into administration. it has, patisserie valerie, as many viewers will now, has been struggling to find a financial lifeline ever since it
5:22 pm
uncovered a £14 million black hole in its accounts just last autumn, and a fall from grace has happened very quickly indeed. it can't find that lifeline, so the company says it will have to go into administration, and that means 2800 jobs now are at risk at over 200 plus outlets. very worrying times indeed for them, but theirjanuary wages, we understand, will be paid by luke johnson, the wages, we understand, will be paid by lukejohnson, the man behind patisserie valerie. and finally news from james dyson, he announced that he was building a new factory in singapore, now the corporate headquarters is going there. yes, he isa man headquarters is going there. yes, he is a man who has played quite the brexit debate, saying, yes, the corporate headquarters is going to move to move to the far east. why? well, he is saying they want to be closer to where their customer base is growing the fastest, and that is across asia. and this will not affect many jobs, a across asia. and this will not affect manyjobs, a couple of executives will move over, they will still have 4000 workers here in the uk, but you can imagine tomorrow's
5:23 pm
headlines, can't you ? uk, but you can imagine tomorrow's headlines, can't you? it will be seen as a lack of faith in the uk. the politics of it from a brexiteer, some would argue. dharshini david, thank you. prince william has been speaking to sir david attenborough at the meeting of world leaders and top business people in davos. the prince interviewed the veteran broadcaster about the urgent challenges facing the next generation of environmental leaders. speaking to the prince, sir david said it was difficult to overstate the urgency needed to tackle climate change. it's a personal treat for me to be sitting here asking you questions, normally i have to endure people asking me questions, so it's quite nice to turn the tables for once. david, recently you were in poland and you spoke very powerfully at the un climate change conference there. tell everyone here, how urgent is that crisis now? it's difficult to overstate it. we are now so numerous, so powerful, so all pervasive, the mechanisms that we have for destruction are so wholesale
5:24 pm
and so frightening, that we can actually exterminate whole ecosystems without even noticing it. we have now to be really aware of the dangers of what we're doing, and we already know that, of course, the plastic problem in the seas is wreaking appalling damage on marine life, the extent of which we don't yet fully know. and why do you think the world leaders and those in key positions of leadership, why do you think they've taken so long and there've been quite a few faltering steps to act on environmental challenges? because the connection between the natural world and the urban world, the society of human society, has always, since the industrial revolution, has been remote and widening. and we didn't realise the effects of what we were doing out there, but now we are seeing that almost
5:25 pm
everything we do has its echoes and has its implications across the natural world, so that we have now to really to be careful what we do, because we can exterminate things without even knowing. people of my generation now are beginning to step into positions of leadership around the world, the work to save the planet is probably largely going to happen on our watch, what advice do you have for my generation and what, what can we build on that you have started? i think the paradox that there has never been more a time when more people have been out of touch with the natural world than now, and we have to recognise that every breath of air we take, every mouthful of food that we take, comes from the natural world.
5:26 pm
and that if we damage the natural world, we damage ourselves. we are one coherent ecosystem. it's notjust a question of beauty, or interest, or wonder, it's the essential ingredient, essential part of human life is a healthy planet. we are in the danger of wrecking that. if we don't recognise the sort of connections that i have been describing, then the whole planet comes in hazard, and we are destroying the natural world, and with it, ourselves. david attenborough speaking to the duke of cambridge. some of the day's other top stories: soldiers and police
5:27 pm

goals before christmas was a very impressive feat, and he's been carrying nantes and the coach was putting big pressure on the club not to sell him even talk the coach might resign, in the end they had to ta ke might resign, in the end they had to take the money. i think there is a good chance sala would have scored goals, he is a player who can be a bit hit—and—miss but when his confidence is up as it is at the moment he can be difficult for defences so it was a wise move for cardiff in their current position, to get a big strong attacker like sala who would have given everything. many thanks for that, matt spire row there speaking to us from paris, the writer who has interviewed emiliano sala on numerous occasions, we will take you to nantes, give you a few more pictures there, and showing some of the outpouring of affection and in some cases, grief as well. they are

it is not bad for the brits this year, i saw the favourite on new year's day, loved it. a bit naughty. some people have said they expect a british period romp, saying it was a bit rude and depressing. it has changed the way... it was a corking film. i am glad it has got ten nominations across the board but for the directing, the look of the film, the directing, the look of the film, the production design which is steeped in great british heritage, shotin steeped in great british heritage, shot in hatfield house, the wonderful tapestries and using sandy powell's costumes for it. film four helped produce. it has taken 20 yea rs helped produce. it has taken 20 years to get to it the screen, a really chequered route to it, and i am sure everyone who has been seeing that project through for that length of time, the writer, and producer,
