7:21 pm
a police officer was killed while investigating a burglary. pc andrew harper who was 28 died late last night in berkshire. he was married just four weeks ago. with me is damien chapman from police care uk, a charity that supports police officers and their families. thank you for coming in. when you first heard about this, what went through your mind? it was an utter sense of shock. the emotion to go through, people associated with the police family are quite significant and start. the reality is police —— policing is dangerous. those on the front line have prepared themselves for harm and she suffer serious injury but to prepare for the ultimate sacrifice is difficult to this is bbc news. do. it is more difficult for the headlines at 8pm: families and loved ones who are not a police officer is killed necessarily prepared for it. it has
7:22 pm
been a difficult day for policing but it still has to carry on. there while investor getting a robbery. pc injure harper was 28 years old and was married just four weeks ago. the is still 60,000 incidents of police attendance required across the murder of pc injure harper is a country today but it is done knowing mindless and a brutal crime, and that one of their colleagues has obviously, all our thoughts are with been lost in thames valley. how much his family, his friends and his more dangerous is policing today, do you think? we know police officers collea g u es his family, his friends and his colleagues —— pc andrew harper. germany corbyn cannot... according are being attacked one every 20 minutes, there are 11 serious injuries every day across the uk. we to tory mp ken clark, who confirmed he would step in to lead stop lou he know one in five police personnel are currently living with ptsd which becomes prime minister if you wednesday and her election, which is is normally associated with the on the key ever will ——. military. this kind of repeated wednesday and her election, which is on the key ever will --. he becomes pre—ministry if he ever wins. dramatic exposure is having an impact on serving police personnel and veterans. these effects are having significant impact on health and well—being across the board and extends to family members are having to cope with it alongside their loved ones. these figures are rising across the board? we do not know
7:23 pm
whether they are rising because the quality of the data is not there to prove it, what we do know is anecdotally we have seen a rise in the number of people seeking help and support. we can see as a charity funded entirely by donations, there is no government funding, we are seeing a rising number of people needing help and a number of people suffering harm as a result of policing is increasing. when people do seek support, what are you able to offer them? we provide a range of support that is practical, emotional and financial in nature. each case is different because each injury whether physical or psychological is unique. we provide wraparound support that individual needs and the family needs on an individual case—by—case basis. the family needs on an individual case-by-case basis. if it is ptsd, that can take years to be properly treated in some cases. yes, and access to treatment is the biggest
7:24 pm
barrierfor access to treatment is the biggest barrier for people suffering with psychological harm because there is no special service. it is generic nhs provision that people are sent to the gp to access. we are putting people in harms way through operational policing and we are not providing them with correct and appropriate access to treatment when they suffer harm. that is why the charity is calling for a mental health strategy in a policing to start addressing some of the serious concerns that exist between personnel who are putting themselves in harms way for the general public day after day. that concept of a mental health strategy, with that, in your mind, apply before it something dreadful happens rather than afterwards? do you prepare people for the possibility of something awful going wrong? the charity itself has been trialling a programme with greater manchester police and we have recently released the findings. we put in place a trauma resilience programme for new intake, people who havejust trauma resilience programme for new intake, people who have just started
7:25 pm
their training, intake, people who have just started theirtraining, and intake, people who have just started their training, and put a intake, people who have just started theirtraining, and puta new technique is about how to process and deal with trauma exposure and make them more resilient for the harm they are about to experience. that has shown a significant improvement in the resilience of individuals from a mental health perspective but that does not solve the entire problem, it helps solve pa rt the entire problem, it helps solve part of it. resilience for officers and those closest to them, in this case for example, a young wife who has only been married for four weeks. we are seeing family support does not exist at the levels it should do, it is being relied upon with charities like us and other police charities to provide that support and care. we have said there needs to be more support put in place by the police forces themselves for those personnel they are employing but also thinking about the devastating impact that something like this has on the wider family unit. he talked about funding and the fact there is no government
7:26 pm
funding coming into an organisation such as yours. presumably you would like they are to be? we would like a wholesale review of the way support and care is funded for police personnel, whether that is through us or personnel, whether that is through us or other organisations and agencies, that needs to be had. the specialists and experts in medical treatment are health care professionals but we have not got access to treatment that is equitable across the board and universal. we have different fragmented approaches across the country meaning we have a postcode lottery for police personnel when they need help and support. the average waiting time can be anywhere between 9—18 months, they are still trying to function in that time as a serving member of a police officer or star. thank you very much for coming in. the family of a man who was stabbed

top death with a screwdriver in a busy shopping centre have described him a devoted father. peter duncan was attacked after what police said was a chance "coming together" with a group of youths near 0ld eldon square in newcastle. seven teenage boys have been arrested on suspicion of his murder. luke walton has been following the story. floral tributes being made today to mr duncan here in newcastle city centre. just a short distance from where he was fatally stabbed. that reflects the deep shock in the city about what has happened. seven teenagers were originally arrested in relation to the incident, five have been released but two remain in custody. there has been a further arrest of a male who has been questioned. tributes to mr duncan from his employers. he only recently joined the company which spoke today of its deep sadness at his death. a former employer spoke of his great intellect and humour and a strong sense of right and wrong, they

7:29 pm
scotla nd through northern ireland and scotland where they may merge together to form longer spells of rain. blustery for all of us but especially the west coast of scotla nd especially the west coast of scotland where we could see gusts of 55 miles per hour.
7:30 pm
hello this is bbc news. the headlines. a police officer is killed while investigating a robbery, pc andrew harper was 28, and had been married just four weeks' ago. the murder of pc harper is a mindless and a brutal crime, and obviously, all our thoughts are with his family, his friends, and his colleagues. jeremy corbyn cannot unite politicians against a no—deal brexit according to the tory mp ken clark, who confirmed he would step in to lead if called upon.
7:31 pm
he becomes prime minister if he wins a general election, which i don't think he ever will. hope for 5,000 british steel workers after a tentative deal to rescue the company from insolvency. a group of women diagnosed with a fair form of cancer linked to breast implants ta ke cancer linked to breast implants take legal action. and coming up. 200 years since peterloo we look back on the massacre that changed britain. let us return to the news that ken clark said he would not reject an offer to become caretaker prime minister if it was the only way to stop a no—deal brexit. the liberal democrat leaderjo swinson has suggested the former chancellor or the former labour deputy leader harriet harman could head a temporary government. earlier my colleague asked mr clarke if he fancied thejob colleague asked mr clarke if he fancied the job of caretaker prime minister. minister. i have within on
7:32 pm
holiday for a fortnight. jo said would i mind being mentioned but otherwise i am out of touch with the news and i come back to find myself in the papers and catching up with events, the whole question of a government of national unity is a possibility that we may have to come to, if all else fails. the first thing to try is to get the majority in parliament, which is against boris's policy of leaving with no—deal, to come together, pass legislation if we can that binds to government to seek a more sensible outcome in whatever way the majority agrees on. if it is necessary to get rid of the government do that, and form a government of national unity, then of course you could argue about who leads it, who is in it. the most important thing is, can the majority going for a political compromise pragmatism, so that all actually agreed on a cross—party basis what
7:33 pm
this government of national unity is going to do. and i hope that now we are coming back from holiday some serious discussions will take place on that. so to deal with those things and briefly, get through some of the question, you said that the borisjohnson government of the question, you said that the boris johnson government is committed to a no—deal brexit, he says he wants a deal. yes, no, is there any chance in your view that he will get a different deal from the eu? he would, if he stopped putting councilly conditions, but he, i have heard him say, he would prefer a deal, no—deal is a million to one chance and that kind of thing. he makes ridiculous demands, which i think make it 99% certain that he is not capable of negotiating a deal, because he is ha rd negotiating a deal, because he is hard line, right—wing nationalist supporters that he surrounded himself with are determined to get no—deal. himself with are determined to get no-deal. so that is beyond a yes no a nswer no-deal. so that is beyond a yes no answer but turning to the other bit of your first answer, the question of your first answer, the question of your first answer, the question of you in a national unity
7:34 pm
government, you are prepared to serve if you are called? if a whole series of events mean we get a government of national unity and if everybody says i am the obvious person to lead it but that is a long way down the track, and i can see why they won't an elder statesman, i an not threat to anybody‘s political career, my views on europe coincide with the majority but i am prepared to compromise, i voted for us to leave europe three times on a beginnings of a sensible negotiated settlement, so if because i am slightly elder statesman, about to leave the house, none controversial no threat to anybody, they ask me to lead, yes, and i would lead it. i wouldn't want to do it nominally sitting as chairman, but i would, but insist we all agreed on what policy this very short—term government was going to pursue, to resolve this brexit crisis. to
7:35 pm
clarify something else, of course, one of the other names in the frame or injo one of the other names in the frame or in jo swinson's one of the other names in the frame or injo swinson's leader of the liberal democrat's frame is harriet harman, who of course is the mother of the house, the oldest serving female mp on the other side, what about a job share between the two of you? i would follow harriet if people preferred her, a soon eyour labour backbencher might be a good thing, yet cooper or someone like that. i understand why the media is obsessed by who might be leading it. key thing is, firstly, agree on what we are going for, is it a negotiated deal, or is it a second referendum, which some people prefer, i personally think a negotiated deal is the one that will carry the majority of the harry kane, and help reunite the public, —— house of commons. i am open to a referendum. agree what you are doing and do it under the preferred least divisive
7:36 pm
most commanding leader, i would follow harriet or yvette. the name we haven't talked about. a other of people would have to decide who they would settle on. what about the name jeremy corbyn? the leader of the 0pposition says it is not up to the leader of the liberal democrats to determine who the next prime minister is going to be an convention says it is the leader of the opposition who tries to form an administration, in the event of a successful no confidence vote.|j don't want to annoyjeremy, he is a key figure but i heard him say that and he is wrong about the convention, he becomes prime minister if he wins a general election, which i don't think he ever will. if he wins a general election he can, if he has party majority form a government. when we have had governments of national unity in the past they have never been led by the leader of the 0pposition or the leader of the biggest party, because it is too difficult to get all party, agreement. you are not going to get
7:37 pm
agreement. you are not going to get a whatjeremy says wit is a labour government that will get an extent ission to article 50 then go on and fight a general election and if it wins it, negotiate a deal after, thatis wins it, negotiate a deal after, that is a none starter. jeremy personally, precisely because he is a very controversial leader of the 0pposition, is quite unsuitable to 00:37:23,261 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 lead a
