soi growing our economy. the uk would per—pupil funding is true to say is changes on the ground that matter. so i think money, women's relationship to money, where they send a message around the world, a falling through the floor. we have a giant open for business sign to haven't got real financial resilience, and their own physical 2.8 billion pounds shortfall in our investors. the democratic case for safety, two of the big issues. school since 2015 and in a recent victoria, do you agree those are the backing the deal is clear, and so is key issues? i absolutely agree with the economic case. it not only survey of members a quarter of whatjude has removes the risk of a no deal exit schools say they are in deficit and key issues? i absolutely agree with what jude has been key issues? i absolutely agree with whatjude has been saying. to add to but allows us to reap the enormous that will only get worse. are you that, i think these issues, benefits of leaving with a deal. encouraged by the line from i've set out why i believe mps disproportionately affected by women of colour, disabled women and all of should back the deal next week. it government saying, the education secretary is pushing hard in terms ta kes should back the deal next week. it takes back control of the issues these intersecting identities as well. while we need to fight for people care about, it delivers the of the spending review? are you these things, we need to fight for change communities voted for and it hopeful? we are hopeful because we equal pay and the ending of sexual violence, we also need to see and have had conversations with damian recognise the ways in which women connects the things we value —— hinds, both ourselves and other might protect the things we value. from different backgrounds sets us on course for a prosperous unions, pushing the case for more funding and to be fair to the disproportionately are impacted by future. parliament will make its these, and i think international women's day really is a fantastic choice. in january mps future. parliament will make its choice. injanuary mps said no to department for education, they have way of raising that awareness the dealfor a variety provided some additional funding but through the sorts of things that choice. injanuary mps said no to the deal for a variety of reasons. some wanted to stop exit altogether. it is nowhere near enough and we jude does with women of the world. need new money from the treasury. we jeremy corbyn opposed it because he wa nted jeremy corbyn opposed it because he wanted a general election and said rate to philip hammond over a year he would vote against the deal you answer first, victoria. do you without even reading it. but others ago and we have still yet to have a think we are doing enough or do you voted against it because they had reply from him. the lack of a reply think we are doing enough or do you think it needs to be stronger, genuine concerns, and they felt it tougher, noisier? is it all a bit was time for the government to get
from philip hammond and according to too polite? i think it is a bit changes to address them. the biggest some of those involved in sending polite but i think you can do quite concern was about the so—called this letter to parents, the a lot with polite activism. if you northern ireland backstop. the suggestion that the education backstop is an insurance policy. it secretary and schools minister have think about slowing down, thinking not been willing to meet them, that is there to guarantee if we run out quite carefully and considerately about how to communicate with of time to agree our new people, it is one of the ways you relationship with the eu, during the ina way, not been willing to meet them, that in a way, the requests of falling on next phase of the negotiations, it deaf is. is there justice can enact change. but i think you're will not lead to a hard border in a way, the requests of falling on deaf is. is therejustice in in a way, the requests of falling on deaf is. is there justice in that right, getting angry, being tough argument? i think we are finding it between northern ireland and and noisy are fantastic ways really is very difficult to raise the alarm ireland. like any insurance policy, draw attention to what are some no side ever want to use it. it is about what is a national crisis in pa rt significant problems faced by women no side ever want to use it. it is part of the deal that the backstop notjust school funding, whilst we have significant problems faced by women not just across the world but in the cannot be permanent. and it is not uk specifically as well. yeah, we brexit in the way. clearly in the eu's interest for it to be are being a bit polite but that is politicians are preoccupied with permanent, because they fear this the way in which women are would give us a competitive brexit. ultimately, politicians on conditioned to grow up and how to all sides have to wake up to the conduct themselves in public life, advantage in the long term. but funding crisis, because the damage well then it's not surprising. jude, there are genuine concerns there is done to schools now will take no clear way out of the backstop of generations to repair. make it moving that question onto you. i am the future negotiations break down. thinking for example of 1975, i've taken those concerns to concrete for us, the case of your brussels, i've explained them to icelandic women, 90% of them got out every single eu leader, and we have on strike, didn't do any housework, put forward serious, detailed look after children, go to work, and school, what is the impact? for me iceland is now the first country in proposals to address them. the the impact is in terms of people government is in discussions with lost from school. we have lost five the eu right now focused on getting the world for gender equality on all the eu right now focused on getting of the metrics. does it need a bit the legal changes mps have asked members of staff from an elementary for. as i've said before, this will more militancy? i think it needs
primary school who work with women to understand they have much not in any way alter our enduring children with special educational more power when they speak out and needs, they did pastoral support. we commitment to the belfast good say, enough is enough, but actually, friday agreement and to avoiding a have lost £20,000 of speech and you know, since we make up half the ha rd friday agreement and to avoiding a hard border in all circumstances. language therapy and we know world's population, i think that the belfast good friday agreement children with speech and language although i agree we do things was a landmark achievement for the needs, if they are not met, they can through love and care, and we love uk government, the irish government, men in our lives, we are not talking and the political parties in often manifest themselves in behavioural issues. we have a northern ireland. it brought peace about individual men, we are talking to our country after many years of national debate about knife crime. all of these things will have about individual men, we are talking about power structures and how that tragedy. the people of northern needs to change, and i think the ireland are our people and their significant knock—on effects and we security and well—being is our arejust significant knock—on effects and we are just starting to see the tip of security and well—being is our security and well—being is our black lives matter movement, the say the iceberg with this. thank you. security and well—being. but, just as mps will face a big choice next her name double—mac movement, the me week, the eu has to make a choice as too movement, things do move quickly. i think —— say her name well. we are both participants in this process. it is in the european movement. i think we need to be more interest for the uk to leave with a the government is giving diplomatic deal. we are working with them, but honest, bolder, more courageous. and people could suddenly hear it and think, i always knew this to be the decisions the european union makes over the next few days will protection to nazanin zaghari—ratcliffe. he said it was true. i was kind of pretending it have a big impact on the outcome of not a magic ones but would send a wasn't, but i am with you now. that the vote. european leaders tell me is what we need to teach our young message to iran that she is they worry time is running out and innocent. we can look back at key women. we have four—year—olds going that we only have one chance to get moments over the past three years. into playgroups still being told, it right. my message to them is now girls can't do this and can't do is the moment for us to act. we

i think, when the foreign there you are. let's talk about why mike ashley has done this. i think, decision were overturned without ever being implemented? my message secretary has summoned the well, he has a 30% stake in the iranian ambassador back injanuary, business to start with, so he is and their reaction was hostile, to those mps who agree with me we initially. obviously concerned about where the there were sort of statements company is going, he has a clear should not risk that is simple. the to say, listen, she's an iranian citizen, you have no right only certain way to avoid it is to financial interest in this. and he and various other things. has been on this acquisition spree back the deal the government has we were kind of expecting on the high street, and he is keen we will see what secured with the eu on tuesday. happens next from the iranians site. the iranian ambassador let's get it done. did tweet overnight to sort of hoover up as much as to say listen, she is an iranian citizen, the uk has no right possible. he is also the outright mps face a historic choice next under international law, which is owner of house of fraser, and that not technically true, week. i'm ready to take us out of but i was expecting there would be push back. is where this comes in. i think he so, hopefully, there will be some is where this comes in. i think he rhetorical pushback but then an is looking to tie these businesses the eu with a deal good for the uk, up is looking to tie these businesses up and really create a sort of attempt to try to solve this. ready to implement the decision of a second arrest has been made voters here in grimsby and across by police investigating the fatal singular department store business on the high street and tie up the the uk, and ready to get on with stabbing of 17—year—old jodie chesney in romford. jodie was stabbed in the back making a success of a new chapter while sitting on a park bench back office system, the sourcing, for our country. we can only do that in east london last friday. all these things where they can make scotland yard says a man if parliament supports the deal on was arrested in london this morning significant cost savings. you have on suspicion of murder. just spoken about the synergies, but tuesday. i need the support of those a 20—year—old man arrested in leicester on tuesday what about the things that might remains in custody. who, like me, voted remain, but hold this deal back if it were to go believe in honouring the result, and believe in honouring the result, and believe leaving with a good deal is ahead? much better than leaving with no the united states space capsule is well, i mean, the corporate on its way back to earth and if governance issue might be the first deal. and i need the support of those who voted to leave, but to re—entry is successful the capsule thing here. mike ashley claiming he could be used to carry humans later accept that compromise is necessary wa nts to if we are to bring our country back thing here. mike ashley claiming he wants to move the entire board of this year. our science correspondent debenhams apart from one director —— together. might remove the entire board. there there may be some on both sides who has more. the dragon space capsule are issues there. also issues around
are not prepared to back a separates from the international the current restructuring negotiated deal with the eu. some space station and heads back to discussions, they are in the process earth for the riskiest part of its because they cannot accept leaving the eu at all, others because they of talking to lenders. they have a test flight, re—entry. it has a heat rent payment deadline on march 25 cannot accept any compromise on shield to protect it from high which needs to be paid and they are their vision of brexit. i don't committed with borrowing facilities, doubt the sincerity of their views, temperatures. retro rockets and four starting to get a bit too close for but i profoundly disagree with them. parachutes will have to slow dragon down before it splashes down into comfort. i think there are several ironically, both sides would find things going on. it is an audacious the atlantic. it has been eight long themselves in the same lobby come themselves in the same lobby come the vote next week, each voting the attempt, but i think ultimately we could see mike ashley taking over same way but each hoping for the yea rs. the atlantic. it has been eight long years. the shuttle was withdrawn opposite result. control, not just in from service because it was unsafe. could see mike ashley taking over control, notjust in the boardroom i hope they will be in the minority. if all goes well in the next few but of the whole of debenhams, in the british people have already hours, the dragon space capsule will moved on. they are ready for this to terms of its shareholding. neil ta ke hours, the dragon space capsule will wilson, good to get your point of take astronauts into space later this year. a lot more on that coming view. thank you very much indeed. be settled. by coming together as a parliament, we can bring our country together, boost our economy, safeguard our security, protect a up this year. a lot more on that coming up shortly. now time for a look at the weather. it has been a cold now, encouraging more women union, and take our decisive step to start their own businesses towards the bright future of the start but at least we had some could help generate an extra £250 british people voted for and which sunshine through this morning. the billion for the economy, according you and our whole country deserve. cloud will increase today. with that to a government report. so let's get it done. thank you. it was compiled by this woman — alison rose, there will be outbreaks of rain. who is deputy chief executive at natwest bank — and she found that while one in three uk from northern ireland, rain moving entrepreneurs is a woman, through. pushing its way into their businesses are — on average —
half the size of firms run by men western scotland, north—west england, wales, petchey rain in the and far less likely to reach applause south—west and eventually that moves £1 million in annual turnover. to the midlands and south—east but not until later in the day. blustery joining me to discuss i willjust is addie pinkster, the founder applause i will just take applause i willjust take a few questions and chief executive of adelpha, from the media. beth? thank you, conditions but not as strong as which is a female—led corporate advisor and private yesterday. it will feel cold at investment network. good to speak to you. firstly, times with a high temperature 7—11. taught me through vie women's prime minister. 0n the point that we a different end to the day compared companies are on average in the uk to the start of the day but as we go half the size of firms owned by men? through tonight, the rain will not every founder entrepreneur wants may never leave the eu at all... are clear. further showers moving to do this and it is not that they you still planning to whip mps through to western areas. temperature is not as low as last have to. what we're trying to night. 3—8. 0ver address, for the ones who want to scale, are they getting the right may never leave the eu at all... are you still planning to whip mp5 for the volt...? our temperature is not as low as last night. 3—8. over the weekend, some support to do that? —— might not you still planning to whip mp5 for the volt. . . ? our policy has always been the best thing for the uk to uncertainty but it will feel windy every founder entrepreneur wants to leave with a negotiated deal and my and cold. they will be some rain and focus is on the vote on tuesday scale. whether they can, i think the hill snow. goodbye. which will be a vote for that deal. rose review is addressing the right 0bviously, which will be a vote for that deal. obviously, as i say, we are still in issues, access to funding, some discussions with the eu on the unconscious bias, access to role specific issues, the specific issue models, female impostor syndrome and of the backstop, which parliament various other very real gender raised, but what i want people to do is to focus on that without on differences. what you think could be done to address all of those things tuesday. voting for that deal you have mentioned ? enables us to leave the eu, to do it done to address all of those things you have mentioned? because certainly they create stumbling
blocks for women to get the ina enables us to leave the eu, to do it in a smooth and orderly way, and i think it is the best route for the investment they need. yeah, if the uk. peter walker? thank you very question specifically as around the funding area, i think on the one hand there is funding available and there is sort of traditional banking much. peter walker from the guardian. prime minister, in your type funding, overdrafts and things, andi speech you seem to put some of the type funding, overdrafts and things, and i think greater awareness of blame for the delays on breaks it that, speaking the language of down tojeremy blame for the delays on breaks it down to jeremy corbyn, the eu blame for the delays on breaks it down tojeremy corbyn, the eu and market employees approaching women mps in parliament but we are now in a position where we are four days better would help. from the away from the second crucial vote investment and equity perspective, and mp5 still don't necessarily know we are very lucky, we know a lot of what they will vote on, and also really high quality investors who three weeks away from brexit and the invest a lot in female led workers in this room don't know if companies. i think the challenge we will even match the 29th, they with the system is unconscious bias, don't know if we will leave with no and it is very hard to understand and it is very hard to understand deal, your deal or a different deal. and invest in something you don't how much of any —— if any personal know. in the case of one fen tech responsibility do you take for this company focusing on hormonal cycles chaos? element firstly, as a for women, it is pretty hard to sit government we have been negotiating and talk to a room full of men, with the eu for a deal that enables us to have a smooth and orderly exit possibly white men aged a0—50 about from the eu —— firstly, as a the hormone cycle of 18—50 year old government. the two years ends on woman. i might do you think the 29th of march, having triggered unconscious bias issue is something article 50. obviously parliament that needs to be addressed possibly rejected the deal i brought back.
earlier on, in the chain, at school? i'll need to support the deal to you might guess, that is an ratify the treaty that lies behind investment theme we look at that deal. you mentioned the next ourselves as a growth area. —— yes, few weeks, but actually what i am thatis ourselves as a growth area. —— yes, that is an investment theme. focusing more on skills and saying, now is the moment for us to character, and may be less on get this done, now is the moment for learning stop we also invest in a parliament to come together to back few that specifically help female the deal and deliver what people doubted for. we have a entrepreneurs, and again it is not responsibility —— what people voted because we are a purpose driven but for full stop we have a we see the opportunity for growth responsibility to deliver the brexit here and it is such a one way people voted for. that is what this momentum that it really makes sense deal is about. john pienaar? john to back the winners. some examples, pienaar, bbc news. prime minister, out of oxford, upscaling women on tech and social media, or one giving are you simply keen to shift the blame for the way the talks have wa nt to tech and social media, or one giving deadlocked towards the eu and away want to be interior designers the tools and the confidence and the community they need to set up the from yourself? if i may, are you businesses they want to. ok, addie willing to contemplate allowing kat pinkster, lovely to have you on and my conservative colleagues, including ministers, to vote to block a no deal brexit, given you happy international women's day. and said it could harm britain and the u. british people? —— my allowing other stories in the business news today. norway has announced it will reduce its government's conservative ministers. my focus is
investment in the oil and gas industries. because of its rich fossil fuel on the debate that will take place on the debate that will take place resources, the norwegian government on tuesday and getting that vote through. it would enable us to leave has a sovereign wealth fund worth around £750 billion. with a deal. for those who don't but it will now let its sovereign wa nt with a deal. for those who don't want us to leave without a deal, the wealth fund dump all of its oil and gas stocks. best way is to vote for the deal so the plan has been welcomed we leave with that deal. you said by activists an important step about the relationship with the eu. in getting investors to move away from fossil fuels. the lawyer for the former boss my about the relationship with the eu. my message to the european union is of nissan, carlos ghosn has very clear. some of the leaders and some in the european union, when i apologised for this... have spoken to them, have said they are not have spoken to them, have said they a re not really have spoken to them, have said they are not really sure whether this is there he is, under that mask. the moment, whether this is the time, whether there is a more time to be talking about this and disguising his client as a workman negotiating on this. my message is while he left a japanese prison. takashi takano said the outfit this is the moment, this is the time was his idea to hide mr ghosn will stop you know, i think people, from waiting photographers, but he's conceded it was an amateur the british public, as i say, have plan, which tainted ghosn's reputation. the once towering figure moved on. —— this is the time. it of the automotive industry is facing charges of financial misconduct and was released on bail wednesday ta kes moved on. —— this is the time. it after 108 days injail. takes both sides to get that negotiation through and then bring he denies those charges. that deal back to the parliament on this spacecraft is due to come back tuesday, but i think what people down to earth this afternoon. wa nt tuesday, but i think what people want is for us just to do this and do it now. rob hutton? the spacex dragon is an astronaut capsule, which has been docked to the international space station for the past week. in a test flight today,

you re watching bbc newsroom live — these are today s main stories at midday. not guilty — shoreham air crash pilot andy hill has been acquitted of 11 counts of manslaughter through gross negligence. iam i am truly sorry for the part i played in their death and it is the day i will remember for the rest of my life. thank you. relatives of ten people killed in west belfast during the troubles call for the northern ireland secretary's resignation after her controversial remarks about the shootings. on this international women's day, karen bradley is an insult to women
and if she has any decency in her at all, she will do the right thing and she will resign. in a last attempt to get mps to back her brexit deal — theresa may will urge eu leaders to agree to legally binding changes to the irish backstop. a crisis in school funding — more than 7000 headteachers from across england write to parents warning that their schools are under threat. the government will grant formal diplomatic protection to nazanin zaghari—ratcliffe — the british—iranian woman who's been injail in iran for almost three years. good morning. welcome to bbc newsroom live. the pilot whose plane crashed during the shoreham airshow killing 11 men, has been cleared of their manslaughter. andrew hill, who's 5a and from hertfordshire, had been attempting a loop when his former military hawker hunterjet exploded into a fireball on the a27
in august 2015. let's cross to our correspondent sarah campbell outside the old bailey. huge relief for andrew hill, an experienced pilot, who friends and collea g u es experienced pilot, who friends and colleagues had attested throughout the trial was safety conscious and careful. he had been a pilot in the raf, flying fast jets careful. he had been a pilot in the raf, flying fastjets for many years and spent the best part of 20 years with british airways, rising to the rank of captain. it was described in court a medical miracle he survived the catastrophic crash. he has recovered from his life—threatening injuries but said in court that every day what happened, and the fa ct every day what happened, and the fact 11 men died, preys on his mind. speaking publicly for the first time about what happened on the 22nd of august, 2015, in the last half—hour,
andrew hill gave this statement outside court. 1295 days ago i lost control of an aircraft, resulting in the deaths of maurice abrahams, dyla n the deaths of maurice abrahams, dylan archer, tony brightwell, james mallinson, matthew grimstone, matt jones, daniele polito, mark reeves, jacob schilt, richard smith, mark trussler. a number of people were injured. i trussler. a number of people were injured. lam trussler. a number of people were injured. i am truly sorry for the pa rt injured. i am truly sorry for the part i played in their deaths and it is they i will remember for the rest of my life. thank you. andrew hill an hour after he was found not guilty of the manslaughter of 11 men at the shoreham airshow. mr hill has always said he cannot remember anything about what happened during the crash, or the day running up to the crash. his
defence was that he flew so badly, which he agreed, because he was in some way cognitively impaired. so he had some loss of ability to fly, due to the effect, possibly, of g forces. with the background to the case, here is my colleague tom symons. it was the worst airshow crash since the 1950s. bleep. the jury heard weeks of technical evidence about flying, before clearing andrew hill. the 11 men who died were all on the busy a27. some had come to watch the flying, others were passing by. they included a veteran chauffeur, friends out cycling, workmates heading home. daniele polito died not knowing he would become a father for a second time. he has two little boys that he will never see grow up and they will never have their daddy. it is just so cruel.
there is something that could have been avoided, which seems quite obvious, that it could have been avoided. it has just caused so much destruction to so many people. jacob schilt and his friend matthew had been on their way to play for their football team, worthing united. jacob's parents were heading to the game, too, when there was a call from a team—mate. he said there has been a terrible accident — a plane has come down on cars on the a27 and we think thatjacob and matt might be in it. from the beginning, you thought this is absurd, you know, my son has been killed by a jet fighter at a display is just absurd. andrew hill, ex—raf, a british airways captain, admitted , has always accepted his
flying that day was poor. he was 1,000 feet too low. this is the home of the british aerobatic academy. in the back seat, instructor adrian willis, who teaches pilots all over the world the precision needed for this kind of flying. adrian asks me to recite a nursery rhyme while pushing us through 6g — that's six times the earth's gravitational pull. humpty dumpty had a great fall. humpty... dumpty... all the king's horses, all the king's men couldn't put... he slurs his words ..humpty together again. i am briefly unconscious, because the blood and oxygen have been pulled from my head. but fighter pilots have special equipment and training to deal with this. vintage aircraft are incredibly popular at air shows.
they can attract young people to careers in aviation, they keep history alive. but these planes are not flown by the raf. they are operated by companies and charities and shoreham has raised big questions about safety. this air display team currently cannot fly aerobatics in airshows over land. and after years of concentrating on protecting the safety of crowds at an airshow, now regulators are looking at the risks to people in surrounding areas. at the end of the day we have to be sympathetic to what has happened and due process needs to take place and we expect regulations will change and it is our duty as trustees and custodians of the aircraft to work within regulations and continue as best as we can to display these heritage assets to the public. and the families bereaved by the tragedy planned to keep the pressure on. they will play a major part in
fourth, forthcoming —— forthcoming inquests. we arejust we are just about to hear from the detective inspector from sussex police. the last three and a half yea rs, police. the last three and a half yea rs , we police. the last three and a half yea rs, we have police. the last three and a half years, we have sought to find a nswe rs years, we have sought to find a nswers for years, we have sought to find answers for the families and friends of those who died and i hope this trial has gone some way towards doing that. on the 22nd of august, 2015, 11 men, fathers, brothers and sons, lost their lives and the lives of many others changed for ever. i am acutely aware of the enormous impact it has had and continues to have on those who lost loved ones, those who were injured on the day, and those who are watching, and the effect it has had on shoreham and more widely. thejury effect it has had on shoreham and more widely. the jury who have sat for nearly two months have considered the vast amount of
evidence that has been presented to them and have heard of the many, many years of experience mr hill has asa many years of experience mr hill has as a pilot. it was clearly appropriate to bring these charges and for appropriate to bring these charges and foer hill to appropriate to bring these charges and for mr hill to stand trial. the jury's view is he is not guilty of the charges brought against him, and we respect that decision. the shoreham air crash will live in the hearts and minds of many people for yea rs hearts and minds of many people for years to come, not least those who lost loved ones. i must pay tribute to the families of the victims, many of whom have sat through every minute of every day throughout the trial, and have done so with com plete trial, and have done so with complete dignity and support for each other for investigation, and for us the police team. the humility they have shown has been truly inspiring. thank you.
detective inspector jon fanner paying tributes to families and says he respects the decision of the jury. we can go back to the old bailey and sarah. a dignified statement from the police, accepting the outcome of this trial? absolutely, and echoing the comments of thejudge in absolutely, and echoing the comments of the judge in this case, he said very much the same thing when the verdicts were read out in court number eight of the old bailey. clearly some of them were visibly upset at the not guilty verdict, and it is hard to know what could bring some of them any comfort, with a verdict, because of the violent and sudden loss of their loved ones. it is hard to overstate that the instantaneous deaths their loved ones experienced and for them, you heard the police officers saying there is a search for answers. they
still want answers. there is the next stage in the process, an inquest, now the criminal process has finished, an inquest will be opened later this year. it will be for the coroner, the west sussex coroner, to look potentially at producing a report, it is called a prevention of future deaths report, into ways perhaps of regulations around airshows and how flying should be tightened up in the wake of the shoreham air crash. and just mentioning the tightening up the regulations, it is not clear whether there will be an airshow at shoreham ever again after the emotional impact on the community there?m ever again after the emotional impact on the community there? it is not clear. certainly there has not been one since 2015 and it is also true to say in the immediate aftermath, the civil aviation authority did tighten up regulations with regard to all airshows, so the
distance that planes are allowed to fly from crowd lines, the height at which they are safely allowed to ﬂy, which they are safely allowed to fly, have been tightened up and certain vintage aircraft like the hawker hunter are no longer allowed to perform aerobatic displays over land to try to prevent a repeat of what happened in 2015. it may well be for this inquest to decide whether further steps need to be taken. airshows for people who have not been to one, are attended by millions every year. the statistics used often in terms of outdoor events, only football matches attract greater crowds. millions go, so this is important to millions of people and it remains to be seen the way they are wrong, whether they can happen, will be significantly changed as a result of what happened in 2015. sarah, thanks forjoining us and giving us that explanation of what is a sad day at the old bailey,
as people consider both families, police, andy hill himself, everybody in court, the lives lost in 2015. i wa nt to in court, the lives lost in 2015. i want to remind you that we have a big speech by theresa may coming up in the next few minutes. she will be imploring eu leaders to give ground and make changes to her brexit deal. she will do that in grimsby. speaking on the part of the country that voted strongly to leave. she will be speaking to the audience but also an audience in brussels, because she wants eu negotiators to make changes to the irish backstop, legally binding changes that will help her get the withdrawal agreement through the commons next tuesday. a second arrest has been made by police investigating the fatal stabbing of 17—year—old jodie chesney in romford. jodie was stabbed in the back
while sitting on a park bench in east london last friday. scotland yard says a man was arrested in london this morning on suspicion of murder. a 20—year—old man arrested in leicester on tuesday remains in custody. we will carry on and on the news channel but say goodbye to viewers on bbc two. families who lost relatives in shootings involving the british army in west belfast in 1971 have rejected karen bradley's invitation to meet them and have been holding their own press conference in stormont. yesterday the secretary of state for northern ireland apologised for saying that deaths caused by the security services during the troubles were "not crimes". this is what she said in parliament. the fewer than 10% that were at the hands of the military and police were not crimes, they were people acting under orders and instruction and fulfilling their duties in a dignified and
appropriate way. yesterday karen bradely said she was "profoundly sorry" for any hurt caused. it comes a week ahead of an announcement on whether british army veterans are to be prosecuted for their role in the bloody sunday shootings, when 1a civilians were killed. this is what members of the ballymurphy families had to say outside stormont earlier. the murders were not conducted, carried out in an appropriate manner, nor were they dignified. they were murders and they should be investigated as such. the secretary of state for northern ireland, karen bradley, has a duty to ensure those investigations take place. what the families told her is we have no confidence in her. we believe her position is untenable and we have asked her to resign. 0ur irleand correspondent emma vardy is at stormont and described the strong reaction to karen bradley's comments from the families of the victims.
karen bradley made a strong apology last night. for a number of families that does not go far enough. a number of families of victims killed during the troubles refused to meet karen bradley today and those that did came out saying for us, that trust and confidence in her has gone, and they continue to call for her to resign. a long way away from here, stormont in northern ireland, backin here, stormont in northern ireland, back in downing street, karen bradley has the confidence of the prime minister theresa may and perhaps at the moment, that might be in part because theresa may cannot afford to lose any loyal cabinet members at such a crucial time of brexit, therefore karen bradley, this may blow over for her in those terms but here in northern ireland, certainly it has been damaging for her. that is because, to say that
victims killed by police or army during the troubles, to say those deaths were not crimes, plays into the fears of the nationalist community here that the british government and ministers are not impartial when looking at any wrong doing on either side, when those legacy investigations are conducted into the many killings that happened during the troubles. a lot of work for karen bradley to do, to rebuild trust and credibility, with a number of people here in northern ireland, and perhaps for some of those families, that is a task she may never actually be able to do. she is certainly determined. she said she rejects a suggestion she should resign and she is determined to do everything she can to try to rebuild that trust. we know this has this has been a steep learning to do. she is certainly determined. she said she rejects a suggestion she should resign and she is determined to do everything she can to try to rebuild that trust. we know this has been a steep learning curve for karen bradley, one of the first thing she said was she did not know northern
ireland much and she slipped up a few months back when she did not really understand the voting patterns here, something fundamental to the way people cast votes when it comes to elections here, and now this. this is the most damaging. we expect karen bradley to continue trying to rebuild trust and it remains to be seen as to whether she can turn this around. the headlines on bbc news... shoreham air crash pilot andy hill has been found not guilty of 11 counts of manslaughter through gross negligence. relatives of ten people killed in west belfast during the troubles call for the northern ireland secretary's resignation after her controversial remarks about the shootings. theresa may will urge eu leaders to give ground on brexit when she delivers a speech in grimsby shortly. we can take a look at the ceiling
grimsby. where the prime minister will come out within the next ten minutes delivering a speech partly to people in the run but negotiators in brussels pleading with them to do something that is in the interests of the european union as well as in the interests of the uk and she will say just as mps face the interests of the uk and she will sayjust as mps face a big choice next week, the eu has to make a choice. she is talking there, the big choice mps will make is on the 12th, on tuesday. mps will vote in the commons on the withdrawal agreement and it will be a decisive vote and on the back of that, decisions will have to be made if it does not go through. factory bosses, dignitaries, security gathering in the room, expecting the prime minister shortly and we will go back

if it comes to a decision to be made we'll have to think about that. steve smith and david warner have been left out of australia's squad for the one—day series against pakistan this month. the pair are eligible for the final two matches of the series because their year—long ban for ball—tampering against south africa ends at the end of this month. it means their return to the international stage could now come against england in a world cup warm—up game in may. britain's alex yee has finished second in his first world triathlon series event. yee, who trains with alistair and jonny brownlee in leeds, earned his first itu triathlon world cup win in cape town in february. he and world champion mario mola pulled away early on in the 5km run in abu dhabi, but the spaniard kicked clear with about 600 metres to go. meanwhile world champion vicky holland has begun the defence of her title in the elite women's race...

said it wasn't a magic wand but would send a message to tehran that ms zaghari—ratcliffe was clearly innocent. let's take a look back at some of the key moments over the last three years... nazanin zaghari—ratcliffe was arrested at an iranian airport on the third april 2016, while travelling back to the uk with her young daughter. she was accused of plotting against the iranian government and in september 2016 she was sentenced to 5 years in prison. she maintained her innocence, but despite a number of appeals — in april 2017, iran's supreme court upheld her sentence — giving her no more legal options to overturn her conviction. and in october that year came the news she could face two further charges — extending her sentence. in august last year, nazanin zaghari—ratcliffe was granted three days' release in order to spend time with her daughter, who has been living with family in iran. at the start of the year, mrs zaghari—ratcliffe's husband
announced that his wife had begun a hunger strike in protest over being denied specialist medical care in hospital. and last night it was announced that the foreign secretaryjeremy hunt has granted her diplomatic protection by britain. the foreign secretary jeremy hunt explained why he has taken this step. this is not a magic wand, but it does create a different legal and political context, and it sends a very strong signal to the iranian government. that look, you are a great civilisation. you may have your disagreements with the uk, but at the heart of this is an innocent woman with a four—year—old daughter, who is very vulnerable, very scared and not well. and the right thing to do is to let her go and not to use individuals as pawns of diplomatic leverage. we have exhausted every other avenue. i have been to iran, i have met the foreign minister, i have met the foreign minister, i have spoken to him on the phone. i
have spoken to him on the phone. i have asked them to recognise the human side of this dispute. but they have not done that. and so we have taken this action. we think it is the first time diplomatic protection has been exercised for an individual in over 100 years and for that reason, we think it sends a very strong signal that there is a human being here we all need to think about this. it is notjust about being here we all need to think about this. it is not just about the diplomatic arguments there may be between the uk and iran, there is a family here and they need to be reunited. speaking to the victoria derbyshire programme this morning nazanin zaghari—ratcliffe's husband richard said he welcomed the move by the british government. we wanted the government to do this to make a clear signal that this needs to be sorted. and obviously what we want iran to do is to release nazanin and bring her home. we discussed yesterday, with the foreign office, what we thought might happen. i think, when the foreign secretary has summoned the
iranian ambassador back injanuary, their reaction was hostile, initially. there were sort of statements to say, listen, she's an iranian citizen, you have no right and various other things. we were kind of expecting we will see what happens next from the iranians site. happens next from the iranians side. the iranian ambassador did tweet overnight to say listen, she is an iranian citizen, the uk has no right under international law, which is not technically true, but i was expecting there would be pushback. so, hopefully, there will be some rhetorical pushback but then an attempt to try to solve this. america's unmanned space x capsule has undocked from the international space station, and is on its way back to earth. if its re—entry is successful, the capsule could be used to carry people later this year. 0ur science correspondent pallab ghosh has more. the dragon space capsule separates from the international space station and heads back to earth for the riskiest part of its test flight — re—entry. it has a heat shield to protect it from high temperatures.
retro rockets and four parachutes will have to slow dragon down before it splashes down into the atlantic. it has been eight long years. that the country who won the space race has been grounded. the shuttle was withdrawn from service because it was unsafe. if all goes well in the next few hours, the dragon space capsule will take astronauts into space later this year. that is coming up because we expect the splashdown at 1a5, uk time so a lot of coverage on that coming up and this is the ceiling grimsby where we expect the prime minister in the next few minutes. we can pause for a moment to catch up with some weather. here is sarah. we had sunshine for many this morning, but those guys have been clouding over from the west and there has been outbreaks of rain so
things going downhill but the rest of the afternoon, we have a lot of cloud, rain stretching from the south west through wales, northern england and scotland. falling as snow over higher ground. still some sunshine in east anglia and the southeast this afternoon and a return to sunny skies in northern ireland. temperature 7—12. a little bit cool for the time of year. breezy and cloudy into the evening. the cloud and rain moves east and we have dry weather in much of the uk tonight but more rain, hill snow particularly in northern ireland, north—west england and northern scotland, as well. temperature is around 2—7 and a touch of frost in the north. tomorrow, a day of sunshine and showers a shower should clear from northern england, sunshine and showers a shower should clearfrom northern england, but most of the hill snow showers will stick around across scotland, drier and brighter in the south. 7—1a.
