" nine out of ten british universities pay their average female employees less they play with someone they have than their average male employees, according to bbc analysis. admired since growing up and you can
forget everything. and the way that the data also reveal that nearly all government departments and almost two—thirds of councils also have gender pay—gaps. fedor removes means he goes on and on without any impact on his joint here's more from our business correspondent rob young. that many other players suffer. and the government wants to close the gender pay gap. it has been asking organisations to take action. i see the next story but the way for the second year running, fedor has behaved over the years is a model of how to be... unlike a public organisations are publishing certain boxer. the gap between what they pay men and women. bulgarian heavyweight kubrat pulev has had his licence a bbc analysis suggests most suspended by boxing authrorities in california, after he kissed a female reporter still pay the average man more on the lips during an interview. than the average woman. footage emerged of pulev embracing vegas sports daily‘s jennifer ravalo when asked about fighting tyson fury. indeed, universities and central the incident happened after pulev, defeated romania's bogdan dinu government departments have a bigger in california on saturday. gender pay gap than the private sector. at universities that gap is 14%. lower than it was, but above last year's national average of 9%. i wanted him to be accountable. one in three government departments say their pay gap has actually i did not want him to get away with it. widened compared to last year. what he did to me was disgusting. i felt humiliated. although they are trying no woman should be treated this way. to do something about it, we were not friends and we were not they are getting it wrong so far. in a romantic relationship. so we really do have to take tougher he had no right to kiss me. action on public sector and private sector employers to make plans, now when it comes to team sky, to hold them accountable we're used to seeing for the plans, and have policies chris froome helped
to win by his teammates. in place if they do not but this week at the tour address the gaps. of catalunya, the four time tour de france champion is the one doing the helping. with the finish line in sight, it is illegal to pay a woman less his fellow sky rider egan bernal, than a man for doing the same work. of colombia, had a problem and had so the pay gap highlights to walk to the finish. differences in working patterns. part—time roles are mainly done cycling's rules, mean he was given by women and there is a lack the same time as his rivals, of women in senior, and he remains third overall, behind britain's adam yates, and leader miguel angel lopez. better paid jobs. and after he got over the line, froome helped him get back england's oldest man has to the team bus celebrated his 111th birthday. bob weighton from hampshire was born without having to walk. on the 29th of march 1908. mr weighton said he had requested a bit ofa a bit of a pillion ride there. so sweet. she's won an olympic not to have a birthday card medal curling stones, now great britain and scotland skipper eve muirhead is throwing from the queen in order herself on the ice as part of a new form of the sport, human curling. i've been to see it in action. to save public funds. it was also the birthday of scotland's oldest man alf smith, from perthshire. the men have never met, but they have exchanged birthday cards in recent years. on the ice where olympic medallist eve muirhead trained, bob says he always gets asked
her sport has taken a new twist what is his secret to living longer. with humans being used as stones. people ask me for my secret. once on your way, you steer with your feet and try to keep your head down to minimise resistance to get all the way into the house. no, i do not have a secret, spot on! i do not keep any secrets. look at that! i have no idea. could not be any closer. no idea. i told somebody once well, i was not hanging around to get ijust avoid dying. round by the next shot. actually, in human curling it works every time. i just think it is one at a time — thatis testing distance, it works every time. i just think that is so brilliant. common sense power and accuracy. but it is the sort of common that's good. instead of pushing down into the rubber tube, try to push forward. sense... and a happy birthday to this new craze started in france both of those gentlemen. time hours and it was eve who spotted it while competing in europe 11 minutes past seven. the time now and brought the idea back to glasgow earlier this year. when i first saw it i was not really sure until i gave it a shot. is 11 minutes past seven. and until you give it a shot you realise how much fun back to our top story. it was yet another major set—back it is and it is just for the prime minister something really different. and her brexit deal yesterday, normal curling is good fun but this when mps rejected her withdrawal agreement by 344 votes to 286. there were angry scenes both inside and outside of parliament, as thousands of pro—brexit supporters human curling is a different level. descended on westminster. we'll speak to one of them
in a minute, but first, let's take a look at how so you start with your hands yesterday unfolded. on the front of the ring, nearest to the red, nearest to the house. in a singles head to head i was no the eyes to the right, 286. what do match for the olympian whose skills are obviously transferable. eve has it there. you want, brexit! to the left, 344. a good metre. but when it came to the doubles, mr speaker. i think it should be a teamwork nudged me ahead. it is looking good. matter of the founder agreed to into the blue, into the blue. every member of this house that once it is the red. again we have been unable to support nearly! leaving the eu or to refashion the and we were not the only deal. this government will continue ones enjoying the ride. this local school hockey team the latest group to use this to press the case for the orderly brexit that the result of the as a team bonding exercise. referendum demands. this deal now i like how it glides along the ice and i was almost there. almost. has to change. there has to be an a little more power? yeah. it's not that hard but alternative found. and if the prime it's not easy either. minister cannot accept that then she would this make you come back must go not at an indeterminate date and try real curling? i think it would. in the future but now. democracy! it's a nice atmosphere with my friends. and that is the main point, to get people booking more time very sad. very disappointed. at curling rinks.
in the future but now. democracy! very sad. very disappointedlj in the future but now. democracy! very sad. very disappointed. i am glad that it is not brexit day but i also think it is a pity that things to feel the pull of the stones. have not gone quicker. we voted it gets people involved, people remained but we just wanted finished who are not quite so athletic. with now even if that means leaving. it should have been an amazing day it has doubled numbers and we have full england. but they have ruined had to add extra sessions. it. and especially on the weekends lucy harris, director we are getting more families of leavers of britain, in which is great. was one of those at the protest yesterday. if we can get more people she joins us now from westminster. in the rink to give curling a shot at the end of the session good morning to you and thank you we can have a bit of fun. for your time. can you give us your go on the tube and see how far you can get up the other end. thoughts about the sequence of it won't necessarily events yesterday and the decision improve your balance taken? for us, we are quite nervous, or curling skills... maybe i needed the comfort of the rubber ring after all, before eve who is competing again extremely nervous because we do not after hip surgery last summer it know what will happen and have not helps unwind after an intense known what will happen for a long training session. time. if you look at the indicative when something like this is thrown vote you saw the customs union and in at the end of the session takes the second referendum seems most likely to go forward which makes me worried. that is why jacob rees mogg takes the foot off the gas, of the pressure a little bit. i know i perform better when i am having fun. was hoping to get a withdrawal coming to other parts of the agreement through yesterday. however it is all based on principles. we have to vote on our principles. we country. one of the few sports when have to vote on our principles. we have to vote on our principles. we have to vote on pushing through with
the result of the referendum, the result to make sure that democracy it helps to be small because you can is upheld in this country. tell us fit in the ring and it is less weight. someone watching that with about the frustration that people in eager interest and i think will have your organisation and others are feeling at the moment. are there... ago... eager interest and i think will have a go... what do you say about that? it would be great. anything with a we have these indicative vote is coming up next week. are any of those alternatives close to a place rubber ring and i will be there. that you think some people of your really? maybe we should move on with mindset would contend with? many of the weather. a lovely start to the my group think that no deal is the closest one. a wto deal is the only weekend for some of you. a hot air one we can actually achieve that is balloon going up in derbyshire, an brexit. for many of us we wanted a indication that the wind is light and pleasant but it is not the same everywhere. a foggy start for some bilateral trade deal, we wanted something that could work with our in the western half of england and european partners however we wales as this shot ashore while ago believe, now, that wto was the only shows. and to scotland and northern ireland were a weather front push in way forward. you think that is for you and that will give cold air. likely? the suggestion was that it it will work its way south as blue colours pushing to just about all as became more likely as a result of yesterday. the issue is that there we go through the weekend. there will be a big drop in temperature of has been no discussion on what the the warmth of recent days. this is default is. we believe it should be no deal. we believe that it should weather front is at the moment,
bea edging into northern ireland and no deal. we believe that it should be a wto deal and theresa may health across the central of the mainland. that make theresa may herself said asi across the central of the mainland. as i said, it is on its way south so that make theresa may herself said that no deal is better than a bad a lot more sunshine developing in deal. that thought process about the scotla nd a lot more sunshine developing in scotland later this afternoon. a few wintry flurries in oakley. away from no deal, those warnings that many people are taken quite seriously some of these western posts, once about the potential short—term and possibly medium—term damage to the you lose the flog —— fog it is another sunny one. outbreaks of rain economy, jobs and livelihood, where does that sit in relation to what you have just said about that being and drizzle through the afternoon. the best outcome as far as you are concerned? ultimately it is not to the south, temperatures reaching the teens. south—east corner about our personal self interest, it possible. much of scotland and is about the idea of democracy in northern ireland in single figure this country full of if you look at temperatures and it will be more of how the referendum has been treated a wind through today. and that will add to the increasingly chilly feel. since we won the referendum, there at least you have more sunshine has been a serious issue about actually making it happen. this compared with the morning. the government does not want to make it weather front is there. that pushes happen. the government does not want to uphold democracy. if we cannot into wales and the midlands eventually. south of that there will control our own personal and be mist and fog again. just about individual lives and we can control nothing as individuals in this country. frost free but the very north of england, scotland and northern ireland could live skies and temperatures down to —4 in a few there are 17.4 million and the spot. he will be a lovely start to argument around whether or not they
have been betrayed, i know there was mother's day and the start of a veal sense of that, i was down at british summertime as far as the clock is concerned. it does mean one westminster yesterday, there was a hour less in bed as the clocks go tangible sense of that and i know you were there yesterday as well. forward tonight at one o'clock and a tell me about that mood. actually, i fine day will greet many even if you was on the other side of the square do get up early. a weather front is andi was on the other side of the square and i thought it was reallyjovial, i thought we were in such good spirits, we are determined not to be there across parts of wales midlands put down, we are determined to hear and east anglia. patchy drizzle on our voices heard. i can't deny that light shower into the afternoon. a there is not a sense of anger and a sense of disappointment that there is also a sense of fear and worry. i sunny day for scotland and northern ireland as well as the north of am scared that democracy will not be england. and a bit of fairweather cloud building up. still chilly, upheld, iam am scared that democracy will not be upheld, i am scared that for the first time in a very long time in british history, democracy will not light winds across the north be upheld and it must be. tomorrow. more of a breeze in the south and you will notice a drop in temperature compared to today even british history, democracy will not be upheld and it must hem british history, democracy will not be upheld and it must be. it is a time when a lot of people are though temperatures could reach 15 talking about compromise and now, degrees. there will be an easterly compromise obviously is a 2—way street. is there an element, at some breeze making it feel a little colder than that. sunday night has point in this process, you must have thought this through. is there a clear skies to take us into the new point at which the choice of week and it will be quite chilly by referendum was a binary one, in or night and also by day through the week ahead full dump the temperature out, the details of it as to whether it would be any kind of customs
union, that came from the two for the capital cities summit up. ba rely for the capital cities summit up. barely reaching double figures in many cases and we are into april parties and what they presented to the electorate in the election, now with a week of april showers. rain, can you go back to that point in time of the referendum and say even hail, sleep on the snow, thunder. if we leave with a customs union, we have left? could that ever be something that could be palatable to back to charlie and they go. —— and you? well, the 2017 manifesto from the tory party said that we would be naga. thank you for that, matt. leaving the customs union. it was made very, very clear in the we'll be back with referendum that we believed in the the headlines at 8am. time now for newswatch. single market, customs union and the hello and welcome to newswatch, with me, shaun ley, standing in for samira. did bbc news give the right priority to last saturday's march supporting ecg, in fact to leave the eu means another eu referendum, and what news value do demonstrations leaving all of its institutions, and that includes the customs union. —— that includes the customs union. —— that we would be leaving. i think like these deserve? you can't compromise democracy, you also... you were just reading stuff out. can't compromise on what was said in no, i'm notjust the eu referendum. we have been told reading stuff out... that we are leaving on those terms i thought you wanted to interview me. and we should be leaving on those did this interview show that the bbc terms. can ijust ask has an anti—brexit bias? and we should be leaving on those terms. can i just ask you and we should be leaving on those terms. can ijust ask you one last thought, if i can? there are questions over theresa may as to how this is the weekend the uk long she is going to survive, we was supposed to have been know she is going to leave fairly leaving the european union. the debate over whether or not it's
soon know she is going to leave fairly soon anyway. have you got someone who you would like to be prime minister? , have i got someone? a good idea continues unabated. well, my group really like boris johnson. —— well. but we also really one shade of opinion was on display like dominic raab, is i think would in central london last saturday, bea like dominic raab, is i think would be a tossup between those two, i with a march and rally demanding another referendum. think we really like to see them do organisers claim more than a million well. 0k, lizzie harris, thank you people took part and describe it as one of the biggest very much for your time this morning, she is director of leavers protests in british history. we weren't told what brexit of britain talking to us this morning. thank you. we like matt, he would actually look like because they didn't know what brexit would look like, is taking a look at the weather this and i think now we actually know what brexit morning. a gorgeous picture behind might be, we should be able to make you. yeah, it certainly is. it an informed decision. although it led saturday's tea—time and late bbc one bulletins and featured live on the news channel on saturday should be a fine day for quite a few afternoon, some felt the march wasn't given the attention it deserved by bbc news. charlotte soares objected... of you but one or two it is a bit go out there and there is some dense fog around parts of central, western and watching the following morning, england and. this is where the fog because of the issues on the roads kim miller complained... over the next few hours, at the airports too. we will clear by mid morning and then the other story today, this cold front which will be
working its way south notjust there to david through the weekend, and a smaller number of viewers had that will be introducing, as you see the opposite perspective, with the blue colours, the 18 to 19 summed up here by paul bateson... degrees we will see in sheffield. —— through the day and through the weekend. it will push through the that's a smaller scale march led rest of scotland and northern on the first day by nigel farage, ireland do this morning, lots of which has taken two weeks sunshine developing but it will feel to reach its destination chilly and there could be some snow at westminster. flurries to two in orkney and it was featured on bbc news shetland, a big contrast in on the day it began. the audience was clearly temperatures. the weather front will divided over last weekend's be somewhere around here by the time coverage of the rally, we get to the afternoon, so to the so how does the bbc decide how much south of it there's still that warm airtime the increasing number air, or19 south of it there's still that warm air, or 19 celsius in the south—east of demonstrations should receive? corner. 66 fahrenheit, further from the gilets jaunes, north, around the glasgow area, most or yellow vests movement, tempers will be in single figures protesting for several months and they will be more of a breeze to go with it, adding to that shell. but the upside is they will be a bit in france, to the now frequent more sunshine abound. outbreaks of main drizzle in northern england, demos across the uk, which will move the tonight, push on subjects including climate change, supporters its way into the midlands and parts of such events demand and expect media coverage. of wales too. still some clear skies are bound to the south of it, mist
and fog not out of the question, largely frost free. with clear skies to what extent should the bbc comply with their wishes? well, one of those responsible for northern england and northern is the bbc uk editor ireland, it is going to be mostly richard burgess, thank you very much for coming into the studio. dry. of course on the clocks, as far what are the criteria you use to determine what demonstrations as the clocks are concerned, the to cover and how much coverage to give them? start of british summertime. clocks well, i don't think there are exact criteria, but i think go forward in our no less of sleep, there are a number of factors that analysis of your nightshift, but a you take into consideration. scale is obviously one of them, concern for the mothers because it which we saw with last weekend's is mother's day as well they might march, a major march wa nt is mother's day as well they might want that extra hour. make the most with a lot of people on it, of it, it will be a lovely, bright that's something you've got stop in scotland and northern to take into account. ireland, a lovely sunny start to but i think there are a number come. lots of cloud the parts of of other factors around, northern england, the midlands to is this a matter come, one or two isolated showers of national significance, is this is a live issue further south to the afternoon. at the moment, and could the march lead to change in the future? sunny spells will break through, so you take all those into account, more of a breeze tomorrow in the south compared with today, less of a but obviously there's the other factor, which is what else breeze in the north and all will is going on on that day, what else is happening fill chillier compared but we have on the news agenda? you mention scale, and this at the moment. temperatures for the is a very contentious vast majority of single figures. —— issue with marches in particular, isn't it? i mean, last weekend, the organisers were saying they had will feel. they will be tempered more than a million people, somewhat by the breeze, as the cloud the bbc was saying, i think, hundreds of thousands. how do you make that call?
brea ks somewhat by the breeze, as the cloud breaks up, the temperatures will be well, i don't think you can tempered somewhat. a light frost, ever absolutely say how next week, it is looking cold of all many people are on a march, by their very nature, of us. temperatures below what they they are fluid events, should be for the time of year, peoplejoin, people leave, people move around, they're over large areas. certainly well off the 19 celsius it's almost impossible, some will have seen over the past if not impossible, to give few days and typical april weather, an exact number. what we do is we obviously have a mix of sunshine, hail, sleet, people on the ground who will make an assessment, snow, the whole shebang. that is how it is looking. which is what we did at the weekend. yeah, it certainly is. things matt. and they were talking about, you know, how densely populated the march was, so we talked about hundreds of thousands, we talked —— thank you. more than 175,000 people have in kind of, you know, broad estimates. signed an online petition and then on the figure of a million, calling for a ban on the practice of covering trees and hedges which the organisers were saying, we attributed that to prevent birds from nesting in them. figure to the organisers nets are often used whenever we used it. by developers to keep birds difficult, though, isn't it? away during construction, but conservationists argue it's yet and it can be very politically another threat to wildlife. john maguire reports. charged, i mean one thinks of the trump inauguration a couple of years back, that became a really serious issue it isa it is a cover—up, but is it right. about whether the media had distorted the numbers, 18 trees have been shrouded by giant had downplayed the numbers. nets at this school in cambridge, you have to be really careful on this, don't you? the council wants to expand the i think that's right, school, something which would not be and i think that's why we do talk in kind of broader terms, allowed if birds were nesting. and when there are more definitive
elaine spotted them, tweeted about figures, we attribute those to the organisers or maybe to the authorities, them and was amazed by the response. although interestingly, the metropolitan police didn't put i think it has made such an a figure on it at the weekend, impression because it is such a and i think that's because they dramatic visual metaphor, if you recognise the difficulty of putting figures on and the political sensitivity around those figures. like, of what we're doing to the you were candid in saying at the start of the interview that one of the things natural world. it has been happening that can affect across the uk, he recently in surrey coverage is what else is happening in the news, ona across the uk, he recently in surrey there are lots of other things, on a large scale and in warwickshire, where hedgerows have been covered. the royal society for it's going to get squeezed, the protection of birds wants the band. the problem is that we are if there aren't many other things, it may be something it's quite easy excluding those from the nesting habitat at this key time of year. to fill airtime with. that's a difficulty, isn't it? the countryside should be a lively birdsong right now but across our country, we have lost 44 million becayse you can spend the money, the resources, you are under birds in 50 years and when nature is an obligation then, live trucks, camera crews, in crisis, we really can't afford to producers, to get your money's worth be adding to its pressures with for the licence payer. things like these nets. there are well, not necessarily, i don't think there was a real issue at the weekend because of the size concerns that wildlife may become of the march and the issue trapped inside the nets, as happened that it was addressing. here in north lincolnshire, the which is... what about more generally, developers say the nets protect because there are lots of other birds and animals and are deployed demonstrations which the bbc covers, ona whether demonstrations on the future birds and animals and are deployed on a controlled and responsible manner. “— of the nhs, for example, on a controlled and responsible or the tommy robinson demonstration manner. —— in. trees with nest outside the bbc‘s
cannot be chopped down during the salford headquarters? again, i think we make decisions based on those criteria i talked about before, in terms of the scale spring and summer nesting season, so and whether it's an issue of national significance, work can be allowed to continue all and what actually happens on the march as well year round. legislation protects nesting birds, as it rightly should is also a consideration. and then we will make a decision but developers under a lot of pressure to bring forward sites for based on the news agenda that day, and sometimes we commit resources development, to start building houses to meet the housing crisis to staff and it doesn't get on, and that's — that's and therefore, delay when they can't the business of news. do tree works between march and i wonder what effect the referendum has had, august means that their development because it's kind of created a very powerful sense is put back, it means we can't start of the will of the people, it's something politicians claim, we're speaking for the will on site and it means we can't build of the people on either houses that need. a parliamentary side of the argument, the protesters also say the same. doesn't that perhaps require the bbc petition calling for a ban has to develop a bit more reached more than 175,000 names, of a carefuljudgment on this, well above the number required to because it is used so much to be, trigger a commons debate. back in if you like, an emblem of a wider public feeling, cambridgeshire, the council has rather than just those people reacted to the negative public who have turned up in a particular response here and ordered the nets day for a particular project? to be taken down, whether they i think you're right, protect all they threatened and i think we do our best wildlife, these will be removed at to reflect the range easter. of opinion around brexit. we know it's an extremely divisive issue, we know
that it's a polarising issue for many of our audience, and one that people feel unsurprisingly, this is an issue hugely passionately about. that's sparked reaction from some high—profile names on social media. stephen fry tweeted: "a robin redbreast in a cage puts all heaven in a rage", wrote william blake. and so our aim as an impartial broadcaster is to give edge to those opinions, not to create a false balance, but to fairly represent the views across the nation. what about other protests? i mentioned, in introducing the gilets jaunes protests, and tv presenter chris packham wrote this: the yellow vests protests in paris in particular, i mean they've been happening every weekend for months now, joining us now is marcus kohler. we've covered them a lot on the news channel. some weekends, they are fairly quiet he is on the chartered institute of protests, other weekends, ecology and environmental management, good morning to you. like the one on the champs—elysees, when protestors were attacked, became much more morning. it is a tricky one, you can newsworthy themselves. how do you make that call? understand when you look at it why i know it's not on your so many people react so very brief as home editor, but for bbc news in general, emotionally to this, where you stand when it comes to netting? well, netting seems have snowballed this it is a difficultjudgment, year. it is relatively new to all those being used and with that has which we cover, and if we cover it come some abuse of the process, to say the least. when you see a tree cover it because it's violent,
are we creating encouragement for demonstrations to covered in nets, it elicits an take a particular turn? emotional response and rightly so, i think that's a good point, you know, we love our habitats and and i think you need to be careful not just to cover so forth. however, we have a real protests when they turn violent or because they are particularly great pictures around fires in the champs—elysees issue, the construction industry has to work during this time of year and and what have you. they have to ensure that they don't with our coverage of that, we've always tried to put destroy nests, legally. yeah, i mean it into the context of the wider political and social divide looking at what the federation is happening in france at the moment, and i think that's what particularly saying, that netting trees aligns of interest to our with relevant environmental audience in that story. and will you think carefully requirement in instances where it about the next brexit protests, has been agreed with the local if there are any, authority that a tree has to be how you cover them? yeah, we do always, and we're careful how we cover replaced. they have a side to this them, the amount of coverage we give to them, and a range story, which they say that there is of voices that we feature. a problem and this is the way to fix bbc news uk editor, richard burgess, thank you very much it. yes, it is a tool that could be for coming in for newswatch. used but i question the way it is being used at the moment, i think few aspects of the bbc‘s brexit the rspb have come up with some coverage are immune to controversy. vague guidance about this and i think they are talking about if it one of those that caught viewers's attention this week was interview has to be checking at least three that sally bundock conducted with tim martin, who runs the pub times a day. checking what? checking chain, jd wetherspoon. it was shown early on thursday morning on the news to see if there are any birds caught channel's business briefing.
business investment has fallen dramatically, in this. as well as the ascetic the uk economy... side, there is a very real risk of animals being caught in these nets, at this time of year, that... the we're doing really well, sally, thing is, as charlie met at the it's all eyewash from remainers. growth has gone down significantly, butjust to say, conditions abounded, if constructors are doing it by the law, by letter when you say we will leave and there will be no tariffs, actually, we will be operating of the law, they are not doing within the world trade organisation anything wrong, are they? —— rules, we will have to organise abounded. rather than the anger or new trade relationships with different trading partners, and we don't know what the tariffs emotion being directed at will look like in the future, constructors, shouldn't be at the higher ups so that it is more if there are tariffs, and we must... you're wrong, you are just reading specific? —— abounded it. stuff out, let me... higher ups so that it is more specific? -- abounded it. it is a relatively new issue, it has i'm notjust reading stuff out... i thought you wanted to interview me! provoked in many ways a very strong a number of viewers objected to the way that sally bundock response on social media and i think conducted that interview. here's rob clarke, thatis response on social media and i think that is a good thing. —— around it. and first dave martin, with their responses. i was actually shocked and surprised by the tone and lack what we have to do is work with the of professionalism from sally when she started asking questions. industry to make sure that the full she didn't give him a chance rent is clear prior to the season to answer any of the questions, and when he did get a chance starting. explain that little bit. to answer, she would immediately talk over him. so prior to development, they will have gone to a of ecological assessment. to look at any potential you don't want to hear damage... to assess any ecological my reply, do you? this went on for about
seven minutes, total effect on the environment around lack of professionalism, couldn't understand why he was invited into the show them, we always say that you have to ensure that you are not affecting birds during the season, and in the first place, seven minutes therefore the areas that we are protecting within the development ofjust, what i could see, a totally biased remain view, process , protecting within the development process, protect appropriately through construction and to fencing as tim martin quite but we do have to the areas that are rightly pointed out. going to be lost by to green season starting. now, that is, you know, you's just got it wrong. essentially the same impact as this sally, you've just got it wrong. plastic, but it is less offensive if she didn't actually and it also does not carry the risk want to hear his lucid and quite sensible responses to what he sees as the positives of leaving the eu, of killing species during the then she shouldn't have asked breeding season or killing species. the questions in the first place. i think netting left for a long her constant rudeness in talking over him was appalling. period of time carries a lot of no wonder he retorted, saying you're a remainer, risks attached and some of the sally. i'm not, tim. things i have read, people are doing is the bbc biased towards remain? bundock certainly put this without planning permission, i it across as that way. absolutely dreadful, think that is, that is extremely... dreadful interview. i suppose on the face of it, i well, we put those points to bbc news, which told us... imagine that this, us putting this piece out, the attention being drawn to it, i guess people will be more aware of it and maybe they do? talk to your local authority if you see
something, and you wonder, is that the route to checking that everything is being done properly? well, i would say to professional finally, the death toll ecologist, to think very carefully from the deadly cyclone under what circumstances we want to in southern africa has reached at least 750 people, with victims in mozambique, use netting because they advise, they are quite often advising the zimbabwe and malawi. client and i would often say to clients and housing developers think the end of last week, about the impact of this on the local community and so forth. there the news at six helpfully showed are better ways to address dealing a map featuring those three with the breeding season. obviously, countries in sophie raworth's studio introduction. whole towns and villages have been submerged, the disasters emergency committee constructors have very, very tough time at this time of year. they have has launched an appeal to get aid to do most of their work at this to those most in need... time of year, but they have to work within the law. this has obviously i say helpfully — that may come in as a quick fix that is just very simplistic and my mind, it to have been the intention, be reviewed. thank you very much. those who know the continent's geography though spotted a mistake. linda was watching and e—mailed... an ecological consultant. lots of people be very interested in that, i guarantee that people send in pictures today of trees they have as ever, thank you for seen in pictures today of trees they have seen that are netted. all your comments this week,
in pictures today of trees they have seen that are nettedlj in pictures today of trees they have seen that are netted. i have not heard of it. headlines are coming and if you want to share your opinion on bbc news and current affairs or even up, we will see you shortly. appear on the programme, do e—mail neswatch, or on twitter. you can call us. and do take a look at our web pages too. that is all from us, i'll be back to hear your thoughts about bbc news coverage at the same next week. goodbye.
