6:03 pm
she screamed for about for those eventualities. at waitrose, profits are improving but it says five unprofitable a minute and then fell supermarkets will have to close this year, with the loss of 440 jobs. down, but then i think shock kicked in so then and there are hundreds of otherjobs she was just moaning and at risk tonight, here groaning for the next at lk bennett as the fashion chain collapsed into administration. half an hour or so. more evidence of the challenging times on the ferocity of the attack, the high street. how violent it was, it was a long knife. emma simpson, bbc news. today, scotland yard said they believe up to four people are possibly involved and they can public satisfaction with the nhs has fallen to its lowest level for over definitely say that one is white and one is black. a decade, according to a new survey. the british social attitudes poll found 53% of those questioned in england, scotland and wales were satisfied just please, somebody who knows about this, with services last year. just do the right thing. some of the most common complaints just get the guy who did it, were about waiting times. get some justice forjodie. here's our health editor, hugh pym. peter chesney believes there should be mandatoryjail terms for people caught carrying knives. he and his family are now facing life withoutjodie. how will i rememberjodie? we were a bit dissatisfied at the beginning with the nhs... patient voices and the state of the nhs. it matters to everyone, young or old. fun, honest. the survey asked people how they feel about the nhs. true, pure, pure soul. after peaking in 2010 and then just an honest, good person. staying steady, she was enjoying life so much. the proportion who were satisfied fell over the last two she was so happy that day.
6:04 pm
years to just above 50%. what's bad is how understaffed that was the best day of her life, that day. it is, how underappreciated it is. the day she died was the best day of her life. i know there's quite a number of people who are unsatisfied with it. peter chesney, the father ofjodie, i know it is overstretched. ending that report from june kelly. in the last hour, we've junior doctors and whatnot. heard that there has been anotherfatal stabbing, it seems to be in a sorry state. this time in fulham, west london. with gp services, satisfaction that news comes as a group is higher than with some other of crime commissioners have written to the prime minister, parts of the nhs but, having been pretty warning that the rise in the number high not so long ago, of children excluded from schools may be partly to blame for the surge satisfaction levels fell sharply in the last couple of years in knife crime. to the lowest since this but the schools inspector, research survey began. ofsted, said there was no i think there are very serious evidence of a link. problems of underfunding, one of the areas worst hit by knife crime is the west midlands it's very difficult to see a gp. and our education editor, bra nwen jeffreys, has spent the day there. i feel gps need to spend more time with patients, and more time actually investigating problems patients have, rather than rushing them in the door and rushing them back out. wolverhampton has an exclusion so what do people think of the care problem. one of the highest rates in they receive in hospitals? well, the answer is satisfaction the west midlands. and children home levels have been fairly stable. educated to avoid truancy in fact last year they went up to the highest in more than two prosecutions. teenagers out of sight. those young people then decades. i have got an elderly become a recruiting ground for the mother and she is very well cared
6:05 pm
gangs who then get them into violence, sending them on these for by hospital services. and when i cou nty go to hospital i am looked after. so violence, sending them on these county lines, sending them off and to distant places, that is what is it is not all bad news. health is happening. some kids rebel against school rules. malachi's mum beverley devolved and patients as saying that parts of the nhs are still not wa nts school rules. malachi's mum beverley wants this exclusion to be the last. living up to what they expect. hugh a small charity school is helping with his behaviour. . i started not pym, bbc news. the great britain special olympics team is preparing to leave for abu dhabi to take part going to lessons, being rude to in the 50th anniversary of the games. teachers and all that. if i'm just more than 100 british athletes will compete. like this, year ten to be a nine, our disability news correspondent and i'm still here in year 11, so, nikki fox has been talking to one of them. take your marks! it's my safe place, how ami and i'm still here in year 11, so, really, the water. how am i really going to...? my itjust always makes you feel future is not going to be that good. so calm and peaceful. erin has been competitively swimming demi has been through six secondary since she was 11 years old. schools, losing belief in herself. i've missed out on a lot, to be she is deaf and has learning honest. like, i have missed out on disabilities, and is in training loads of exams, and it does get to for one of the biggest sporting events in the world, me because then i know i am probably the special olympics. how excited are you? going to fail. like, i have orally it's like... failed in so much. when you talk to
6:06 pm
it'sjust, like, a dream, actually, excluded kids, you can feel their it is a dream come true. what are your chances? lack of confidence, a vulnerability yeah, obviously, winning a gold medal would be brilliant, that can leave them open to being groomed into criminality stop often, and just bringing awareness to people about exclusion is just the latest blow in the special olympics. their lives, on top of whatever they are dealing with in their local streets or even at home. you can the world said people with intellectual problems should not be seen in public. tonight, you are part of the year's have domestic violence. you can have largest sporting event different partners, different people and the world is watching. in and out of the home. you can have somebody, and it is not simple but the special olympics the fact somebody has died who they were founded by eunice shriver. part of the kennedy dynasty, we re very the fact somebody has died who they were very close to or had a lot of her brother, john f kennedy, respect for, really affects them. became us president. but it was less well known that her sister, rosemary, exclusion can lead to this kind of had learning disabilities. specialist support. ministers say £4 this inspired eunice to start a sporting camp in her back garden to show the world what people million extra is going into it. like her sister could do. maccabi schools don't exclude for for a0 years, she used her influence not having a pen. they exclude for and determination to create persistent disruption, violence, 10% opportunities for those of exclusions are for violence excluded from society. against staff. we need to reserve she basically guided the right in the last resort to you to focus on their abilities, exclude pupils from schools to keep on their potential. them safe in places where children by flipping it from a problem can learn. wolverhampton is trying
6:07 pm
to an opportunity, she ensured to ta ke can learn. wolverhampton is trying to take knives off its streets. but a whole different future all but one of its youth clubs have for millions of people. closed, a decision forced by for erin, the special olympics are more than just a competition. shrinking budgets. branwenjeffreys, you've got abu dhabi coming up soon. bbc news, wolverhampton. are you excited? the couple who fostered yes, it's very exciting. the parsons green bomber are taking unprecedented legal action i get to, like, socialise against surrey county council. with people with no disabilities they're accusing the council of negligence for failing to tell and hearing people. them that ahmed hassan had been trained to kill by the islamic state group. the special olympics does not share the same profile of the paralympics, hassan's bomb partially detonated and athletes don't receive any on a tube train in september 2017. he'd built it secretly while in official uk sport funding. the care of ron and pennyjones. but despite this, great britain they've been speaking to our legal is sending a team of more than 100 to abu dhabi. correspondent clive coleman. nikki fox, bbc news. horror on the tube. the partially detonated bomb sent time for a look at the weather... a fireball down the carriage, here's sarah keith lucas. burning morning commuters who stampede to escape. it has been a windy day, across the the bomber is ahmed hassan, country there have been blustery an iraqi asylum seeker showers around and it has felt quite who, unbeknown to his foster chilly in the wind too. this comes parents, ron and pennyjones, had confessed to immigration from one of our weather watchers in officials he'd been trained st andrews earlier. most of those to kill by the islamic state group.
6:08 pm
heavy showers should ease away, 18 months later, the couple finally things will turn colder so we didn't feel able to come to parsons green, have a frost last night but many of us have a frost last night but many of us will see a frost developing where the attack took place. ijust keep thinking tonight under clearing skies. the about the ladies that were burnt showers move away to the east, and the men that were burnt, lingering longest in the south—east and the people that got of england but as the wind is far the crush injuries. lighter and they are coming in from i mean, 51 people, 51 counts the north, we are in for a chilly of attempted murder. night. the blue colours show where to penny, from ahmed, happy birthday we will see the lowest temperatures. to a wonderful person. in rural scotland we could see them surrey county council, who placed hassan with thejoneses, didn't tell them he'd confessed as low as minus six celsius, frost to being trained to kill. further south too. but there will be the couple only found out sunshine from the word go tomorrow, via the judge at hassan's trial. and cloud moving on from the west surrey has stopped them fostering. quickly which will bring outbreaks of rain to northern ireland, across now they are taking unprecedented legal action, suing the council for negligence. wales, western england, scotland too, and it will turn to snow over they didn't tell us the truth. they should have been honest higher ground. the weather should with us to start with. stay dry and bright across eastern the fact that we have lost our england but wherever you are it will income, we have lost everything, feel chilly, seven to 11 degrees. we have lost our will to get up, basically, in the morning, then we have more in the way of low because our life has revolved around pressure moving in from the atlantic
6:09 pm
as we head into the weekend so the children for over a0 years u nsettled as we head into the weekend so the unsettled theme will stay with us. and our life is empty. further showers in the north and surrey county council, shame on you! north—west, some of them wintry, a group of foster carers some hail and sleet over higher and supporters have gathered here, outside surrey county council, ground. you are likely to stay drier to demonstrate with penny and ron, further south in the country but and to ask the local authority why wherever you are we are expecting a a couple who gave a stable home chilly and blustery weekend to come. to nearly 270 children have thank you. had their foster caring career ended that's all from the bbc news at six. because they were asked to take in a young man who they weren't told was a trained killer. the demonstrators believe this case makes a broader point about the way foster carers are treated, something they wanted to communicate directly to the council. penny, what just happened? he just told me to get out. itjust shows i'm definitely on the scrapheap. in a statement, the council said... hassan was convicted and sentenced to life,
6:10 pm
thejudge branding him as devious. but penny and ron, an ordinary couple, continue to try to come to terms with extraordinary events. do you think you'll ever get over this? no, no. i think it will keep coming back. i think we will think we've got past it, and then all of a sudden something will come back to remind us. clive colman, bbc news. negotiators from both the uk and the eu are preparing to work through the weekend in order to break the deadlock over brexit. eu officials have given theresa may's government until tomorrow to come up with fresh proposals on the controversial northern irish backstop, which is designed to prevent a hard border on the island of ireland. ministers are pressing for concessions from the eu before a crucial vote on the prime minister's brexit deal next tuesday. here's our political editor laura kuenssberg. the bells will ring... mps will be called to vote on tuesday.
6:11 pm
walking through this lobby to back the prime minister, or the other, to reject her brexit deal again. and how many go each way depends on what he says. we have been engaging, mr speaker, in focused, detailed and careful discussions with the european union. the attorney general geoffrey cox is pushing for extralegal promises from the eu on the most controversial part of the deal. we continue to see legally binding changes to the backstop, which ensure it cannot be indefinite. and it's not a laughing matter. it's come to be called "cox's codpiece". what i'm concerned to ensure is that what's inside the codpiece is in full working order! the argument‘s intense. but between the uk and the eu, over, you guessed it, the backstop, the guarantee against a hard border in ireland whatever happens.
6:12 pm
westminster wants a time limit or a way out. not much sign of that. this issue has been discussed for months between the european union and the united kingdom. now it cannot be reopened. if the idea is to weaken the backstop at a point to which it's not a backstop, it's not a last resort solution, we cannot say yes. without any change to the backstop, don't expect much change to the numbers in here. remember in january, the prime minister's brexit compromise was thumpingly rejected by mps. but there are likely to be some tweaks that will make some difference, but ministers can't be sure of how much. but whether in brussels or westminster, several cabinet members have admitted privately the vote is likely to be lost. this minister says wait and see. are you going to lose the brexit vote next week? we are in negotiations so we will see how it goes.
6:13 pm
how are they going, tough going? lovely to meet you. we will see how it goes, thank you. and as the day we are meant to leave gets closer with no deal in place, so calls for delay grow louder. parliament has proved itself incapable of resolving this problem. the country is totally divided as a result of nobody being able to support any of the options, and i'm joining a group of people who in the next few days will be calling for an extension of the negotiating period. if the prime minister's deal is booted out again next week, it's likely mps will vote to make that delay come true, but with divisions and dilemmas all around, time alone might not be the answer. laura kuenssberg, bbc news, westminster. brexit aside, two cabinet ministers have found themselves in hot water. amber rudd has apologised after she referred to labour's diane abbott as "coloured" in a phone—in on bbc radio 2. we'll have more on that in a moment from ben wright in westminster. but first, the case of the northern ireland secretary karen bradley, who's also been saying sorry.
6:14 pm
let's talk to emma vardy in belfast. what has she been apologising for? yesterday in the house of commons, karen bradley said that killings by security services during the troubles in northern ireland were not crimes, that they were by people carrying out their duty in a dignified way. now this is such a contentious issue in northern ireland, not least because there are a number of unresolved investigations at the moment, looking at the deaths of unarmed civilians attributed to police and the british army. just next week, former british army soldiers are due to find out whether they will face prosecution for their involvement in bloody sunday in which 14 civilians we re bloody sunday in which 14 civilians were killed. she has faced a lot of criticism for this and today karen bradley has issued a sincere apology, saying she is profoundly sorry that her words were wrong but it is not the first time she has slipped up and she will have work to do to regain the confidence of
6:15 pm
people in northern ireland. now to westminster and ben. i gather amber rudd was trying to defend diane abbott? she was, yes, amber rudd was saying the online abuse suffered by black minority ethnic women was particularly nasty. —— black and minority ethnic. but she was sticking up diane abbott but at one point described the labour mp asa at one point described the labour mp as a coloured woman. it definitely is worse if you are a woman, and it's worst of all if you are a coloured woman. i know that diane abbott gets a huge amount of abuse and i think that's something we need to continue to call out. that prompted a furious response from diane abbott, who said it was a revealing choice of words, it was outdated and offensive. it is pretty extraordinary that amber rudd used such an old—fashioned racial terms that jars are so such an old—fashioned racial terms thatjars are so badly today. it was inevitable she would have to apologise and she did immediately, saying she was mortified by the clu msy saying she was mortified by the clumsy language she had used. she's only been back in the cabinet for
6:16 pm
micro months and a dispute about race and language is not where amber rudd wants to find herself. thank you forjoining us. our top story this evening: the father ofjodie chesney who was stabbed to death last friday has paid tribute to his kind and thoughtful daughter. coming up... as the special olympics marks its 50th anniversary, gb athletes prepare for the games which begin next week in abu dhabi. coming up on sportsday on bbc news... she's just back from conquering europe, and now the golden girl of glasgow, laura muir, tells us she's ready to take on the world. the war in syria, which has so far claimed about half a million lives, has been raging for eight years this month.
6:17 pm
president bashar al—assad has presided over a conflict which has displaced more people than in any other crisis in modern times. among the victims, the innocent children who've gown up knowing only conflict. we've been following two of them — children who are as old as the conflict itself. caroline hawley has been back to meet them. my name is mustafa. the eight—year—old and his little sister survived a barrel bomb. it destroyed their family home near aleppo, leaving only their grandmother to look after them. safe in the cupboard is mustafa's most precious possession. it's all he has left of his father, ibrahim, who died saving him. his mother was also killed, but he doesn't even have a photo to remember her. mustafa was so badly injured he spent a whole year in hospital. twice a week he still comes for physiotherapy. he is a strong boy. he's very strong. his left hand doesn't move properly because of a piece of shrapnel in his brain.
6:18 pm
his hips were badly broken and one leg is now longer than the other. mustafa needs help to dress and wash. the challenges mustafa faces are no less daunting than when we first met him, when he was five, but he's no less determined. the syrian war has created many mustafas, children whose injuries and loss will stay with them for the rest of their lives. millions of syrian children can now only remember living as refugees,
6:19 pm
many in makeshift camps with no homes to return to. this girl, who was born when the conflict began, is also eight. since we first met her, life hasn't got any easier. she's often sick.
