good afternoon. bullying, exam pressure and social media — some of the things having a negative impact on modern day childhoods in the uk, according to a report from action for children. the charity wants to see the creation of a national childhood strategy, to better protect young people. john maguire reports. it was more in the mocks where i felt more stressed and like there was more pressure... what do three generations of the same family think
1:39 pm
about a modern—day childhood? harvey's just finished his gcses, but earlier in the year struggled with anxiety. for a teenager these days, pressure comes in many forms. i think with social media and stuff, people my age now grow up with, oh, this is what you need to be like, this is how you need to act to fit in, and now it's not so much of that happens at school, that happens at school and then when you get home, it's not really something you can escape. when obviously i was 16, it was kind of like, well, you go and do what you do and if it comes off great, if it doesn't, it doesn't. but now there's that much emphasis on the fact that there's only a few jobs and you've gotta be the best of the best in order to get those jobs. right from an early age, the schooling is more full on and life is more full on, and peer pressure is much more full on. they worry so much about what their peers are thinking. whereas i think we were much more, we are what we are. the charity action for children have spoken to thousands of families across the uk and its report speaks of childhood in crisis. 62% of grandparents, 60% of parents and 34% of their children said childhoods today are getting worse. bullying was highlighted as the main concern, exacerbated by online and social media issues, and the charity
1:40 pm
is calling on the government to better protect youngsters by creating a national childhood strategy. in response, the education secretary damian hinds says a youth charter is in development to give young people a voice in the issues they care about — such as combating serious violence and knife crime, addressing mental and physical health challenges and concerns about the environment and climate change. john maguire, bbc news, worcestershire. addressing mental and physical health challenges and concerns about the environment and climate change. john maguire, bbc news, worcestershire. after a lengthy campaign, 12 and 13 year old boys will be offered the hpv vaccine in year 8, at school from september. the vaccine has been offered
1:41 pm
to girls on the nhs since 2008. men can spread the hpv virus to women — and themselves can grow up to suffer from hpv—related cancers such as throat, head and neck cancer. health officials say the vaccine will prevent 29,000 cancers in uk men in the next a0 years. victoria derbyshire spoke to mandy parker, who had cervical cancer, her 10 year old son ted, who's eligible to receive the hpv vaccine when he's a bit older, and jamie rae, who had throat cancer and wishes he had access to the vaccine. my cervical cancer was caused by the hpv virus and if i had had the vaccine, there was a huge chance i would not have had cervical cancer and gone through the emotional journey that we have all been on since i had it. you had to have a hysterectomy. what was hardest about that to come to terms with? it was really difficult because i am lucky enough to have children but it takes
1:42 pm
away, if i wanted any more children, it was a radical hysterectomy. it took me three months to recover. and it is emotional, the emotional effect of cancer that hits me later. so if i had had the vaccine i might not have had to go through it and nor would my family. how do you react as a mum of girls and a ten—year—old boy to the fact that boys will now get the hpv vaccine like girls have been doing for a number of years. it is massive. both my girls have been vaccinated and ted will be vaccinated when it is time. it is huge and a great piece of news that has come out. it is so important to prevent all cancers that are related to hpv. ted, do you think it is important for you to have this when you get to year eight? yes because i don't want anyone to go through what my mum did obviously.
1:43 pm
and i think it isjust a jab and it can prevent a lot of things which are quite bad. do you not worry about jabs? not really. because if you think it is really important, it isjust five seconds. even less! jamie, i want to bring you in. you had throat cancer and had intense radiotherapy. what was that like? to be honest it was incredibly difficult, it completely turned my life upside down and even today, nine years later, i still have side—effects from the treatment so it is a very rough journey. could the jab have saved you from that trauma? absolutely. i have absolutely no doubt whatsoever. had it been available at that time, i have no doubt it would have presented this cancer. how did you develop throat cancer? to be honest, lam not
1:44 pm
exactly sure when i got hpv, it probably was when i was a teenager, or when i was in my early 205 but the actual gestation period before it became a cancer, it is a long time and can take decades. so i was 43 when i was diagnosed nine years ago, it is like a ticking time bomb. there is no way of knowing whether or not you have it if you are a man and if it is throat cancer. so it is a very difficult thing to deal with. you were on our programme to years ago, you were on our programme two years ago, you were pointing to the evidence for boys getting this free jab like girls have been doing. it has taken another two years but the announcement is today. how do you react? i think it is an excellent piece of news. i congratulate public health england on the decision to vaccinate boys. my only concern is, if there
1:45 pm
is a concern, is that in 2008 when girls were vaccinated, the vaccinated girls they vaccinated girls between the ages of 12 and 18 but my understanding is that boys, only boys aged 12 will be vaccinated. with the introduction of this programme. and i think that is a mistake, i think it is a missed opportunity. so you mean the vaccination could should go up through the years of school up to the age of 18? yes, we have been campaigning for the last five years. if you are at school just now and you are 16 or 17 years of age, you may well have had that vaccine had it been introduced earlier and if i accept that the situation in 2008, less people were vaccinated, but it is still an issue and one which should be addressed. some of the people affected talking to the victoria derbyshire programme. a reminder of today's
1:46 pm
headlines. donald trump resumes his attack on the british ambassador in washington calling sir kim darroch a "pompous fool" in a series of tweets. jeremy corbyn challenges the next prime minister to test their brexit plan with a second referendum, and says labour would campaign to remain. a pioneering gene silencing drug is approved for nhs use in england to treat patients with a rare hereditary disease. the business news. online delivery firm ocado says the fire that ripped through its andover warehouse in february cost £110 million. the company has already claimed millions of pounds back from its insurers but the fire did force it to report a half year loss of £143m last year, and hit sales by 2%. a new survey from the shopkeepers association — the brc — shows consumer spending injune was at its weakest
1:47 pm
since the mid—1990s. it says it's further evidence that the british economy is shrinking. total sales fell injune by 1.3%, while the annual rate of growth slowed to 0.6%. supplier eon is to provide all of its residential uk customers with an electricity supply that is wholly matched by renewable sources including wind, biomass and solar. it's one of the biggest green energy switches to date, and comes at no extra cost to customers. bmw has given a boost to the uk car industry by confirming that the production of its new electric mini will start in cowley in november. deliveries of the brand's first fully electric car will start in march 2020. earlier this year, a bmw board member said the company would have to consider moving car production out of the uk if there was a no—deal brexit.
1:48 pm
amanda stretton is motoring editor at confused.com. this is a boost for the uk car industry isn't it? the uk car industry isn't it? the uk car industry as we know has been suffering for a multitude of reasons over the past few months. we have seen over the past few months. we have seen car over the past few months. we have seen car sales slumping so everything that is going to secure more britishjobs within everything that is going to secure more british jobs within the car industry is going to be hugely welcome and it is a great news that this iconic british car, the many is going to be dealt here in cowley in oxford. hot off the heels of the fa ct oxford. hot off the heels of the fact that jaguar is oxford. hot off the heels of the fact thatjaguar is going to be building its electric it car here. they announced their electric car would be built in birmingham securing many thousands ofjobs coming off the back of news of many redundancies across—the—boa rd. so coming off the back of news of many redundancies across—the—board. so i think it is great but one thing i would say is that although it is busily brilliant news that we're going to be seen car production here in the uk, we have to remember that
1:49 pm
it is not just in the uk, we have to remember that it is notjust about car production, we have got to see lots of investment in infrastructure. and of course, the incentives for people to buy because battery electric vehicles, solely electric vehicles, not the hybrid variety, they are much more expensive for consumers because of battery technology. u nfortu nately because of battery technology. unfortunately the government cut subsidies to these cars last year and have absolutely wiped out the subsidies if you are buying plug—in hybrids. so it is great news on the one hand, i just hybrids. so it is great news on the one hand, ijust hope that this will incentivise people to actually make the move despite the fact that these ca rs can the move despite the fact that these cars can be more expensive. it is interesting figures came out a few days ago showing sales of low emission cars have fallen for the first time in two years, perhaps an indication of what you have been seeing? unfortunately at the moment there is no spec category between purely electric and plug—in hybrid, they get lumped together as alternative fuel vehicles. we have seen alternative fuel vehicles. we have
1:50 pm
seen this big slump in hybrid because the subsidies have been cut totally. originally it was four and a half thousand, the entry into have to thousand and then for the plug—in hybrids it was abolished completely. but it was a joint effort in cleaning air quality and reducing emissions so everybody has to play their part. car manufacturers are definitely making the right moves, making multi—million pound investment into car plants. to produce classy in the uk. we just need consumers to buy them and we need consumers to buy them and we need government to support. and support from the government means better infrastructure for electric vehicles and we have had an announcement today. talking through it. the announcement has looked at roughly £40 million investment into charging infrastructures. this is great but £40 million when we are looking at such an enormous breadth of industry is only a drop in the
1:51 pm
ocean. we need to see rapid roll—out of charging infrastructure. fast chargers, slow charges, chargerfor people who do not necessarily have a driveway where they can actually have their own plug—in facility. what we are looking at today is, there has been various investments into different technologies, wi reless into different technologies, wireless charging and solar charging, this is all brilliant news but what we need to see is this on the ground, for consumers, very quickly because our saadi has showed that many people are put off buying a carfor the lack that many people are put off buying a car for the lack of charging infrastructure. —— our study. a car for the lack of charging infrastructure. -- our study. thank you very much. in other business news... the value of the pound has fallen
1:52 pm
again — to its lowest levels since mid—2017. it's been hit by worries about the threat of a no—deal brexit under the next prime minister and a deteriorating uk reports say richard branson's space—tourism venture, virgin galactic, is planning to go public. the wall streetjournal says one firm is to invest about $800 million in the firm, for a 49% stake. branson's company is racing against blue origin, the space business of amazon founder jeff bezos, to bring tourists into space. transport and logistics group eddie stobart has warned its first half results for the year will be towards the lower end of expectations, despite posting stronger results. revenues were up 25% compared to the same period last year after growing the business and winning a number of new contracts. nintendo is planning to shift some of the production of its switch gaming console to vietnam from china. the shift is aimed at diversifying risks, not, it says, to avoid tariffs with the us. china and the us have been embroiled in a trade war over the past year, placing tariffs on billions of dollars worth of one another‘s goods. that's all the business news. gchq was once top—secret, the government denied the existence of its security and intelligence organisation for the best part of 60 years. but gchq's intelligence—gathering
1:53 pm
spans a century, from second world war code—breaking, to combatting cyber crime today. as it marks its 100th birthday this year, a new exhibition is bringing previously unseen artefacts into the public eye. our security correspondent gordon corera reports. it's no secret gchq has been breaking codes and intercepting and securing communications. it is the uk's more secret intelligence agency. for 100 years it has been securing communications. now for the first time it is revealing some of its secrets. in a new exhibition. there are many items which have never been seen in this exhibition. this large machine was used to transmit secure messages during world war ii including code is broken at bletchley park. this phone was used by winston churchill,
1:54 pm
this was used during the cuban missile crisis and this briefcase phone was used during the falklands war to issue instructions. and finally a secure phone use by the queen, gchq's longest serving customers. this is the radio transmitter that was used as part of the falklands by rank. they were arrested in 19 six a1. —— spy ring. this is the radio that they used to send messages to the soviet union. so this, in a suburban house was transmitting all the way to moscow? indeed. this part of the exhibition deals with modern technology and the challenges it poses to gchq. these are challenges it poses to gchq. these a re parts challenges it poses to gchq. these are parts for a quantum computer. such a computer in the future could be able to break previously unbreakable codes. overhear our everyday items, so—called internet
1:55 pm
of things, and all. you have got a kettle, a door bell, you have got a doll called kayla, an interactive doll. the point being anything like this which is connected to the internet could be hacked. and finally over there you have got a laptop that was infected by the so—called wannacry virus. now, a few years ago, that virus infected parts of the nhs and took it down in a major cyber—attack that gchq had to deal with. it is a century of keeping the country safe, and this exhibition, it is a unique collaboration with the science museum and it is a chance for us to bring the public into a bit more of that story, to understand a bit more about the way in which we produce intelligence, the fantastic ingenuity of this organisation. the last exhibit is called secret dust — ground—down particles of gchq computers. turning them to dust is the only way to make previously classified data unreadable. there are, it seems, still some
1:56 pm
secrets gchq wants to keep. we will have more later but now it is time for the weather. the sunnier skies today in the south and north of the country. this picture comes from cornwall. as you can see from the satellite picture the far north and the first south—west have been enjoying the best of the sunshine. in between, a lot of cloud. that is producing some outlets of rain and we will continue to see some wet weather into the rest of the afternoon particularly in northern ireland and scotland and down to northern england. a comp of rain into the midlands and then maybe the chair at wimbledon. pretty light temperatures in the low to mid
1:57 pm
20s for many. as we go through this evening and night, we will see a lot of dry weather across the south. it will turn quite muggy, quite sticky here whereas further north we will see rain pushing across northern ireland and northern angling and scotland. temperatures only dropping to 12 and 16. a muggy night for many. brett best of the dry weather, a front bringing outbreaks of rain. outbreaks of rain quite showery across northern ireland into scotland, the further south you are one or two showers. again there could be a shower of at wimbledon. most southern areas will be dry with sunshine. 25 degrees in london but late afternoon, east scotland and north—east england could see heavy thundery rain. nothing like that at wimbledon but as i mentioned, there is just the chance of a shower as we
1:58 pm
go through tomorrow afternoon. looking ahead to thursday, it is, to all intents and purposes, a day of patchy cloud showers and cloud. some of those showers could be really heavy with flashes of lightning and thunder. temperatures highs of 20 to 24 degrees. friday should bring fewer showers. there could still be the odd heavy thundery one across parts of north—east england and eastern scotland. otherwise a fair amount of dry weather and a slightly fresher field by the stage. we amount of dry weather and a slightly fresherfield by the stage. we keep that feel for many as we head into the weekend. showers will slowly but fade away. dry weather, some spells 00:28:38,768 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 of sunshine.
