good morning, welcome to breakfast with sally nugent and ben thompson. our headlines today: french boats head forjersey in a row overfishing rights — two royal navy ships have been sent to patrol the area. this is one of many small ports that line the normandy coast. and about six boats have left from here this morning, but they're going to be joined by other boats along their way. and they think by the time they reach jersey, there'll be 50 to 100 small boats. up to a0 million people can go to the polls today, on what's being billed as super thursday. good morning. i'm here at somerset house in london, where team gb olympic and paralympic athletes are gathering to collect their official kit for the tokyo games,

with 78 days to go. meanwhile, in the champions league there'll be an all english champions league final. last night chelsea swept aside the real madrid to set up a showdown against manchester city in istanbul later this month. good morning. we've had some snow showers across scotland and northern england last night. through today the snow level will rise back into the hills. for the rest of the country it is sunshine and showers. we lose the rain currently moving across the english channel. details coming up. good morning. it's thursday, the 6th of may. our top story. two royal navy ships have been sent tojersey overnight, over fears of a possible blockade by french boats, in an escalating row over fishing rights. around a hundred fishing vessels are expected to stage a protest today at the island's main port, st helier. our reporter aruna iyengar has this report. choppy waters ahead
6:02 am
in anglo—french relations. one of many french fishing boats setting out forjersey this morning. they are protesting about difficulties in getting licences to fish around the channel islands. it is the latest skirmish in a deepening post—brexit dispute. all fishing boats are required to have a licence to fish in jersey's waters. to get one, french boat operators must show a history of fishing in the area. but the french say new additional requirements were added without notice, including new rules about where ships can go, the number of days they can spend at sea and what machinery can be used. some french fishermen have threatened to blockade the port of st helier, though french officials say the protests will be peaceful. earlier this week, the french maritime minister threatened to cut off the island's electricity. france supplies 95% ofjersey�*s power through three underwater cables.
6:03 am
it has angered of the public, most certainly, and we've seen emergency meetings going on tonight at government level to see what can be done. but most certainly our advice to ministers is to not capitulate. downing street says it wants to see tensions de—escalated, but as a precautionary measure it has still sent royal navy patrol boats hms severn hms tamar from portsmouth tojersey. aruna iyengar, bbc news. the fishing boats taking part in today's protest left the normandy coast in the early hours of this morning. our europe correspondentjean mackenzie watched some of them go. this is one of many small ports that line the normandy coast, and about six boats have left from here this morning. but they're going to be joined by other boats along their way. and they think by the time they reach jersey, there will be 50 to 100 small boats. now, the fishermen say that they're going to protest peacefully. they've got no plans to block the port. they won't even be fishing.
6:04 am
theyjust want to show their presence, to show how upset and angry they are. they didn't see this coming. they didn't think that they were going to have their rights or their ability to fish in jersey waters, impacted by brexit. they have been fishing in these waters, most of them, their whole lives. many of these fishermen catch more than 50% of their fish from jersey's waters. now, under the brexit deal, they still have the right to fish in jersey's waters. but now they need licenses. they have got their licenses back. and they say that there are a whole load of conditions attached to these licenses, which mean that they cannot fish as much as they want to, or as much as they need to. so it's that that they're protesting. they are asking for these licenses to be reconsidered, and to be able to fish more freely, like they used to be able to. jean mackenzie with the latest. after seven we will take your life to st helier. robert hall will be
6:05 am
there on board a boat. that is after seven. millions of people are casting their ballots today, in the biggest test of voter opinion since the general election in 2019. every seat is up for grabs in the scottish and welsh parliaments, and there's a by—election in hartlepool. thousands of council seats in england are being contested, as well as elections for a number of mayors. our political correspondent helen catt has the details. coronavirus has made today's elections a little different. polling stations have been set up with safety measures. that means cleaning and screens, and one—way systems. there'll be a clean pencil for each voter — or you can bring your own — and you'll be asked to wear a face covering inside. there may also be limits on how many people can go in at once. the outbreak of the pandemic delayed elections, which were due to take place last year. so this year, there are a bumper set of polls across most of the country. in scotland, voters will elect the 129 members of the scottish parliament.
6:06 am
in wales, all 60 senedd seats are up for election. in england, voters will choose around 4,650, 13 mayors and 25 members of the london assembly. there are also elections for 39 police and crime commissioners across england and wales, and there is a by—election to pick the new mp for hartlepool. the polls will be open, as usual, until ten o'clock tonight. anyone self—isolating because of coronavirus can nominate someone else to cast their vote. applications for an emergency proxy, as it's known, can be made until 5pm. and if you have a completed postal vote, which didn't make it to the post box, you can hand it in at your local polling station until 10pm. when it comes to counting the results, that's going to take longer than usual too. different counts are taking place over several days, from tonight until monday. helen catt, bbc news. a murdered police community officer's dog has been tested for dna, in the hope it provides vital evidence in the
6:07 am
hunt for her killer. 53—year—old julia james had taken herjack russell for a walk, before her body was found in woodland in kent. simonjones reports. julia james walking her dog, toby. she was wearing these clothes, apart from the gloves, when she was murdered, her body found close to her house, her dog unharmed by her side. police are desperate to hear from anyone who saw julia, or her attacker. we've got a very considerable forensic strategy, as you would expect. it does include the dog. that is being staged through the laboratories. i'm not in a position — it wouldn't be appropriate for me to give a running commentary on the many exhibits and the forensic strategy that we have under way. but of course, we've considered all opportunities around toby. the outpouring of grief in the community continues. the question people are still asking is, why? until things are a little bit more known, i feel a bit vulnerable, if i'm honest with you. whether it's connected, whether because she was a police woman, i don't know.
6:08 am
you know, because there was, you know, something — somebody had a grudge against or something, or whether it was just purely, you know, random, who knows? the murder investigation is being led from here at folkestone police station. officers say it is their number one priority, and they're currently sifting through hundreds of pieces of information that have been provided by the public. police have released this map. they're keen to hear from anyone who was in this area on tuesday last week. officers are continuing to advise local people to be vigilant and let someone know when they go out. this community, like the police, are desperate for a breakthrough. simonjones, bbc news, folkestone. royal mail are releasing a set of 12 stamps to honour the music legend sir paul mccartney. the collection features eight album covers which have defined the ex—beatle�*s career, along with photos of sir paul in the recording studio. the stamps go on sale later this month.

6:16 am
many of the front pages focus on the uk sending royal navy patrol vessels to monitor a protest by french fisherman in waters around jersey. the daily mail says it is a "major escalation" of the row with france overfishing rights. the times reports that the vessels, armed with cannon and machine guns, will patrol the channel, after 100 french fishing boats threatened to block jersey's main harbour. the death of model and singer nick kamen is on the front page of the metro. the paper includes tributes from madonna, boy george and duran duran. �*mad for it�* is the headline on the back page of the mirror, which carries a picture of chelsea goalscorers timo werner and mason mount, as they celebrate a place in an all english champions league final, against manchester city. of course, that final is going to be played in istanbul. that of course, that final is going to be played in istanbul.— played in istanbul. that is in a coule played in istanbul. that is in a coople of _ played in istanbul. that is in a couple of weeks. _ played in istanbul. that is in a couple of weeks. two - played in istanbul. that is in a couple of weeks. two english | played in istanbul. that is in a - couple of weeks. two english teams. and the potential for,

6:22 am
and arm in afghanistan. he set himself the goal of running five kilometres to raise money for charity, and smashed his target after a video of him training went viral. now he's onto his next, gruelling challenge — swimming across plymouth sound. breakfast'sjohn maguire caught up with him. eyes on the prize. the objective of mark ormrod's latest challenge is drake's island, and to swim a thousand metres off the coast of plymouth. his mental strength is his greatest asset, self—evident when he insisted on parading with colleagues from a0 commando, after he'd been blown up in afghanistan less than five months earlier in 2007, leaving him a triple amputee. mark's most recent endeavour was running five kilometres to raise money for reorg, a charity that uses a brazilian martial art to support veterans, military and emergency services staff. his current total
6:23 am
stands above £260,000. his target is now a00,000. his drive was extraordinary, proved as a fall in training was posted online and went viral. running seems impossible, but swimming requires a whole new level of determination. you're just going to get in and see what happens. you've got the lads here anyway, so we've got safety in numbers. what i'm kind of hoping if we can get to a buoy and back, we're looking at 200 to 250, maybe 300 metres as the tide comes in. so that would be a step in the right direction towards one kilometre. you swam at the invictus games. so how is your swimming? terrible. and you know what's frightening is, i remember how tired i was after 50 metres in an olympic sized swimming pool. now, this is a lot farther, with tides and currents, and creepy crawlies underneath, and everything else that comes with sea swimming. so, this is a new world to me. but it's for a good cause.
6:24 am
so we're going to do it regardless. this is his first training swim. by his side is another former royal marine, his trainer, ben wadham. how i'm going to get him through this is i'm going to rely on mark's absolute mental capacity to dig out on things that most normal human beings couldn't. getting in the sea is hard for someone with all limbs. and it's a daunting challengejust to get into the sea and swim 100 metres out and back. conditions aren't in our favour. it's a bit cold and it's horrible currents. but we have got the luxury of buoyancy with the saltwater. sea swimming is hard enough, but mark has only one arm to drag himself through the oppressively cold water. he sets off at an impressive pace. clearly, ben's punishing dry land training regime has been effective. but gyms and pools can't fully prepare you for the sea, with its tides and currents. with mark struggling, and fatigue exacerbated
6:25 am
by the cold setting in, the decision's made to return to shore. the current is particularly strong out there, so, it's dragging us that way. at that point we were just churning up, because we couldn't get enough power to get him moving through the current. so, we got in line with the buoys, but the current was dragging us off. and then we just worked to get straight back in. challenging. and that's the nature of the beast with the sea, i'm afraid. and the temperature. right. take the vest off. he's obviously physically and mentally robust, but today has proved invaluable, as the team learned about what kit and which techniques would enable mark to complete the one kilometre swim. it's cold. yeah. harder than you thought? oh, yeah. i've not really swum with a current before, and the cold affected my forearm, which meant that my fingers couldn't close properly to swim. so... ah!
6:26 am
but a good first day, though. i felt like i was flying. the first bit, you know, i wanted to go straight from the off to keep warm, and it felt like we were flying. and then all of a sudden we hit that current and stopped. and the current with the cold, my whole forearm cramped up. and honestly, it didn't seem a lot, but i learnt a lot in that first little bit there about the kit i need, what i need to work on, alreadyjust in that tiny little swim. so, a good first day. another monster effort. it will be. the end result will be. as a former royal marine, the corps' motto is per mare, per terram. mark has conquered the land. now he's taking on the sea. john maguire, bbc news, plymouth. 0h oh my goodness. what he is trying to do there is so incredibly tough. when you see that final shot of the
6:27 am

lawyers representing a group who swim at hampstead heath bathing ponds have written to the city of london corporation to challenge the introduction of new charges. they say the fees disproportionately impact disabled swimmers and those on low incomes. a spokesperson for the city of london corporation said the pricing was "fair" and the charges would be reinvested to ensure access to outdoor swimming can continue. we're being encouraged to take our own pen or pencil and wear a face covering if we go out to vote today. here in london we're electing a new mayor and london assembly — the people who scrutinise the mayor's decisions and hold them to account. polling stations open in about half an hour and close at 10 pm. four artists are in the running to design the first ever national windrush monument. it will stand at waterloo station and will be a permanent tribute to a generation of workers who came to the uk from the caribbean from 19a8 onwards. the winning design will be revealed in october, and the final sculpture is expected to be unveiled next year.

let's take a look at the travel situation now. on the central line, today's planned strike has been called off on the roads — the usual delays are building northbound at the blackwall tunnel. on the north woolwich road, it is closed by london city airport because of a scrap yard fire and on the edgeware road, down to one lane southbound by the old marylebone road because of was so —— unsafe structure. now the weather with kate kinsella. good morning. it's a chilly start this morning with temperatures close to zero in one or two spots. it's a largely bright start though with some high cloud mixed in there but some sunshine at least first thing. thicker cloud moving south as we head through the morning bringing one or two showers blowing through on the north—westerly breeze but drier this afternoon with isolated showers but some sunshine. temperatures not impressive at around 11 celsius at a maximum.
6:30 am
overnight tonight it is dry and clear. the windfalls a little lighter overnight tonight so the minimum temperature dropping down to low single figures, between two and four celsius. a chilly start to friday, but it is a bright day with some sunshine, fairly decent, and the wind a bit lighter but notice this deep area of low pressure starting to edge towards us and that arrives on saturday bringing wet conditions, but, it replaces that colder air with something a little warmer. so, temperatures on saturday and sunday making a recovery. into next week, they drop back down, just not quite as low as this week. i'm back with the latest from the bbc london newsroom in half an hour. plenty more on our website at the usual address. now though it's back to ben and sally. bye for now. hello, this is breakfast with sally nugent and ben thompson. coming up on breakfast this morning. # ooh, i guess you're wondering how
6:31 am
i knew.# his steamy levis ad influenced the way a generation of men dressed in the 805 — and inspired madonna to write a song for him. we'll reflect on the life of nick kamen. with one in five of us admitting to using the same password for everything, maths whizz bobby seagull will share his tips for creating some foolproof combinatipns. and we'll be joined by super stars little mix — as they release their first single since becoming a trio. excited about that. just after 830 they willjoin us. nearly 35 million people have now received a first dose of a coronavirus vaccine — that's more than half of all uk adults. deaths from the virus are continuing to fall — with 27 reported yesterday. we're joined now by one
6:32 am
of our regular gps, dr rachel ward. good morning. so, vaccinations continue apace. give us a sense of where we are on that timeline, that plan for getting everyone who needs a vaccination and whether we will hit the deadline injuly? goad hit the deadline in july? good morning. _ hit the deadline in july? good morning. then _ hit the deadline in july? good morning, ben and _ hit the deadline in july? good morning, ben and sally, i i hit the deadline in july? good i morning, ben and sally, i think hit the deadline injuly? (limp. morning, ben and sally, i think this is an absolutely incredible stage that we have reached, getting so a high proportion of the adult population having had two doses, so fully vaccinated, and we are only in may. we continue to make really, really good progress with the vaccine roll—out. you say, are we on target to meet the july figure? the same kind of factors continue to apply, really, as to whether we meet the target. the first one is supply, so the supply seems to be pretty good at the moment, so hopefully that's not going to be a limiting
6:33 am
factor and of course we have been buying lots of vaccines recently so hopefully that won't be a limiting factor. and then looking forward to july, will we meet the stage where all of our adult population have had one dose? well, we have to consider whether everyone is going to take up that invitation, so in the coming weeks and months we will be really encouraging our younger populations to take up the invite. that perfectly _ to take up the invite. that perfectly leads _ to take up the invite. that perfectly leads into - to take up the invite. that perfectly leads into the i to take up the invite. that perfectly leads into the next question that i wanted to ask about the younger people now being offered the younger people now being offered the vaccine. what is your message? we know different age groups have a different sort of idea about the vaccine and whether they are likely to take it. , ., ., ,., to take it. yes, we do have some concern there _ to take it. yes, we do have some concern there will _ to take it. yes, we do have some concern there will be _ to take it. yes, we do have some concern there will be vaccine i concern there will be vaccine hesitancy in our younger populations. thankfully, if we look at our younger groups, if you are young and fit and well, your chances of being very, very unwell or dying
6:34 am
from coronavirus is extremely low, so some people think, why do i need to do it, why do i need to get a vaccine? we need to think of it in this way. the more of us that are vaccinated, the lower the numbers of covid around in the lower the transmission between people, the lower the amount of covid in our society, and the more able we will be to get back to normal activities and more importantly, keep doing them, so wejust and more importantly, keep doing them, so we just want everyone to be protected as we continue through summer into autumn. so even though you are low risk, it is still incredibly important that you get that vaccine. this incredibly important that you get that vaccine.— incredibly important that you get that vaccine. . , ., ,., that vaccine. as we return to some sort of normality, _ that vaccine. as we return to some sort of normality, i _ that vaccine. as we return to some sort of normality, i wonder- that vaccine. as we return to some sort of normality, i wonder how i sort of normality, i wonder how things are in this surgery and how you are seeing patients, because people are getting out there again and we know there is a big backlog of people that need treatment for other things. of people that need treatment for otherthings. how of people that need treatment for other things. how busy is it right now? it other things. how busy is it right now? , . , , , _ . now? it is incredibly busy, ben. some people — now? it is incredibly busy, ben. some people are _ now? it is incredibly busy, ben. some people are saying -
6:35 am
now? it is incredibly busy, ben. some people are saying there l now? it is incredibly busy, ben. | some people are saying there is now? it is incredibly busy, ben. l some people are saying there is a crisis in general practice. in march 2021 we actually saw 3 million people more in general practice compared to pre—covid march 2019 and at the same time, we are running the vaccine clinics we deliver to 75% of vaccines and we have fewer gps than two years ago, so we are really feeling the strain at the moment. you ask how we are seeing people, we are still seeing people in all different ways. we are still being requested that we call people before seeing them and i know in march 56% of consultations in general practice were face to face. i feel like we are seeing a lot more people now. there are things you can do over the phone, but there are also things you can't, so for example, yesterday, i was doing joint injections, baby checks, antenatal checks, checking rashes, things you can't do over the

6:37 am
have liked to have been, people who have really struggled not having so much of a social network when they've had their baby. it's had a real impact on this group, and that'sjust one example real impact on this group, and that's just one example of a group. all of us, for different reasons, have had an impact from the pandemic, so we are still very much seeing that people are struggling and having a hard time, and of course, otherfactors of and having a hard time, and of course, other factors of our lives are affected. many people are not working and having financial difficulties, so we really are in it for the long haul with the mental health impact and i think we are going to be seeing it for a long time, unfortunately.— going to be seeing it for a long time, unfortunately. yes, 'ust one ofthe time, unfortunately. yes, 'ust one of the other— time, unfortunately. yes, 'ust one of the other implications i time, unfortunately. yes, just one of the other implications of - time, unfortunately. yes, just one of the other implications of all i time, unfortunately. yes, just one of the other implications of all of i of the other implications of all of this. rachel, thank you so much for talking to us. doctor rachel ward with some of this associated problems that have come out of the crisis, but if you are worried about anything, do go and get it checked. and as rachel said, you have to feel for anyone who has had a baby in lockdown because the only thing that
6:38 am
gets you through those difficult months is other people. imagine being at home and not being able to have as much help from other people as you might do in normal times. so, so tough. we do have some things to look forward to. it's nowjust over ten weeks until the olympic games officially kick off in tokyo. mike's at somerset house in london where some of the athletes are gearing up for the event. mike, what's going on there today? just talk us through it. yes, it's hard to believe _ just talk us through it. yes, it's hard to believe on _ just talk us through it. yes, it's hard to believe on a _ just talk us through it. yes, it's hard to believe on a cold - just talk us through it. yes, it's hard to believe on a cold may i hard to believe on a cold may morning, as you are saying, sally, 78 days to be precise from the start of the tokyo olympic games and the paralympic games starting a month after that, so the countdown is well and truly on. here at somerset house i will be surrounded by olympic and paralympic athletes from team gb. they are getting their new kits, the official kits and they hope to be winning medals in them in ten or so
6:39 am
weeks' time so i will be chatting to those and we have elliott stuart, a judo athlete and sean, a climber, speaking to them shortly and there will be more throughout breakfast. congratulations to chelsea, reaching the champions league final. chelsea have set up an all english champions league final after a comfortable semi—final victory over 13 time winners real madrid. the blues will play manchester city later this month in instanbul as natalie pirks reports. he's been here before, just last season in fact, but to reach the champions league final with chelsea, thomas tuchel would have to beat a european powerhouse. a cagey affair caught fire when timo werner got in front of real�*s defence — a little too in front. a let—off for the 13—time champions soon turned into a let—off for chelsea. that's a fine save from mendy. that was the warning chelsea needed. when midfield dynamo kante powered through, havertz troubled the crossbar and werner made sure. there is the follow—up, and this time it does count.
6:40 am
benzema was a constant threat as chelsea defenders flailed, mendy flew to the rescue once more. chelsea almost made the perfect start to the second half. the confidence coursing against a spent force. but frustration was mounting as chance after chance went begging, until a textbook team effort finally paid off. scored by mason mount. that's the final booked for the brilliant blues. back at europe's top table once more. tonight, manchester united and arsenal are in semi—finals action in the europa league and after united's game against liverpool was postponed due to a fan protests on sunday, it's been re scheduled for next week. it means a lot of games coming thick and fast for united next week. that means united face the prospect of playing four games in eight days with the first
6:41 am
coming tonight against roma in the second leg of their europa league semi—final. they then return to england and will face aston villa on sunday, leicester on tuesday and liverpool on the thursday. it was a good night for chelsea's women too as they returned to the top of the wsl after sam kerr scored both goals in a 2—0 win at tottenham. victory over reading on sunday would see them retain the title having already won the league cup and they also have the champions league final against barcelona to come. wales' alun wynjones is expected to be named captain of the british and irish lions side. warren gatland will name his 36 man squad for this summer's tour against south africa this afternoon. the three test series will start injuly. britain's dan evans has continued his fine run of form — he's through to the third round of the madrid open, after beating the 10th seed john millman. evans came from a set down to win 6—3 in the decider. he now faces a tough test against world number 6 alexander zverev in the last 16. rory mcilroy says the proposed super golf league
6:42 am
is nothing more than a "money grab" and he's still against it, as reports suggest the saudi—led plan has resurfaced. players have been warned by the pga tour that they could incur instant suspensions and lifetime bans if they take part — which will affect their chances of playing in this year's ryder cup. back here at somerset house, and the build—up to the tokyo olympic and paralympic games, and i'm delighted to say that elliott and shauna were upon the roof earlier in the new kit, but you come down, so thanks for that. kit, but you come down, so thanks forthat. let's kit, but you come down, so thanks for that. let's start with you, shauna, because it is the first time that climbing will be at the olympics and you will be one of the first ever athletes to wear the climbing kit, if you like. how does it feel? it climbing kit, if you like. how does it feel? , , , ., ., it feel? it 'ust feels so surreal to me. i it feel? itjust feels so surreal to me- i still _ it feel? itjust feels so surreal to me. i still can't _ it feel? itjust feels so surreal to me. i still can't believe - it feel? itjust feels so surreal to me. i still can't believe climbing| me. i still can't believe climbing is going — me. i still can't believe climbing is going to — me. i still can't believe climbing is going to be part of the games and maybe _ is going to be part of the games and maybe it _ is going to be part of the games and maybe it will sink in when we get

and a rather slow vaccine roll—out. we will find out next month whether any localjapanese crowds or fans any local japanese crowds or fans will any localjapanese crowds or fans will be allowed. that's all for now. more later. mike, great to see you at somerset house and we will talk to you very, very soon. lots of good info from mike on the olympics on what hopefully will be happening. we will keep a close eye on any developments there. it looks lovely in london where mike was and it looks lovely in parts of scotland for very different reasons this morning. look at that. freezing temperatures overnight. that is not a light dusting of snow, thatis that is not a light dusting of snow, that is proper, proper snow. carol, how rare is it to have that much snow in what, early may? it is unusual but not unheard of. we do sometimes see snow even at lower levels in scotland in particular and
6:48 am
we've seen quite a bit in some of the hills in scotland but notjust in scotland, but also northern ireland and wales as you can see from the weather watchers picture and also across northern england. the snow level will rise through the course of the day in scotland and for most of us today we are looking at a mixture of sunshine and showers and once again, it is going to be rather chilly. the snow has been falling through the course of the night through the highlands and the lowlands and some hill snow in northern ireland and northern england and also parts of wales. in the far south of england, we have a little system scooting through the english channel producing thick cloud and rain which will eventually pull away to the near constant leaving sunshine behind and then we are back into the dizzying array of sunshine and showers. some will be heavy and thundery with hail but not as many as we saw yesterday. still feeling cool for the time of year, between eight and 12 degrees in the wind will not be a strong but it is coming from a chilly direction, namely the north. through the
6:49 am
evening and overnight we hang onto a few showers and there will be some clear skies around and the temperature will fall away, low enough for a touch of frost, so another chilly night in prospect and if you're thinking of putting your tender plants out, don't yet, because we are not done with the frost as yet. we start off tomorrow again on a cold note with some frost, again, a lot of sunshine to start with but there will be further showers developing as we go through the course of the day and you can see how a lot of them migrate over towards the east of england, north of scotland as well, and at the same time a new system is waiting in the wings which will throw more cloud ahead of it, turning the sunshine hazy across the isles of scilly and through cornwall. that is an area of low pressure coming our way in time for the weekend and as it moves in it will bring some sunshine —— wet and windy weather but also some milder conditions as indicated here by the number and yellow which continues to push northwards and eastwards across most of the uk.
6:50 am
here it is in graphic form but all of the rain is moving north and east and again the cloud building. wintry on the tops of the hills in scotland and it depends how quick the clearance is as to high —— how high the temperatures will get and we are looking at 13 in belfast and could get up to 16 as we push towards london. as we move into saturday and sunday, overnight saturday into sunday, overnight saturday into sunday, you can see how the system pushes northwards but we have a cold front coming in from the west and once again it is the positioning of the cold front that will determine whether we will have. this is where we think the cold front will be at the moment, so under this it will be fairly grey and also damp and on either side we are looking at a mixture of sunshine and showers. if we have prolonged spells of sunshine in the south—east we would get as high as 20 degrees but all it would take is for the front to move south—east and spill more cloud and the temperature would be lower, but still disappointing in lerwick at
6:51 am
only 8 degrees, so still lots to play for. lots to play for because so much is happening, where ever you are. you are getting a bit of everything. yes we could even see lightning today. i everything. yes we could even see lightning today-— lightning today. i love it when we aet value lightning today. i love it when we get value for _ lightning today. i love it when we get value for money _ lightning today. i love it when we get value for money out - lightning today. i love it when we get value for money out of- lightning today. i love it when we get value for money out of carol. j last year, more than a third of people worked from home at least some of the time — because the pandemic closed many workplaces. now, with lockdown easing, many businesses are planning for their employees to return — but will it all be the same? nina's in newcastle this morning. donning an amazing outfit this morning, nina. ilove donning an amazing outfit this morning, nina. i love it. it’s donning an amazing outfit this morning, nina. i love it. it's been a while. morning, nina. i love it. it's been a while- we _ morning, nina. i love it. it's been a while. we have _ morning, nina. i love it. it's been a while. we have missed - morning, nina. i love it. it's been a while. we have missed the - morning, nina. i love it. it's been a while. we have missed the highj morning, nina. i love it. it's been i a while. we have missed the high viz jackets. good morning from sunny newcastle and carol has sorted a house with a blue sky. sage, they

7:00 am
thicker cloud moving south as we head through the morning bringing one or two showers blowing through on the north—westerly breeze but drier this afternoon with isolated showers but some sunshine. temperatures not impressive at around 11 celsius at a maximum. overnight tonight it is dry and clear. the windfalls a little lighter overnight tonight so the minimum temperature dropping down to low single figures, between two and four celsius. a chilly start to friday, but it is a bright day with some sunshine, fairly decent, and the wind a bit lighter but notice this deep area of low pressure starting to edge towards us and that arrives on saturday bringing wet conditions, but, it replaces that colder air with something a little warmer. so, temperatures on saturday and sunday making a recovery. into next week, they drop back down, just not quite as low as this week. i'm back with the latest from the bbc london newsroom in half an hour. bye for now.

lawyers representing a group who swim at hampstead heath bathing ponds have written to the city of london corporation to challenge the introduction of new charges. they say the fees disproportionately impact disabled swimmers and those on low incomes. a spokesperson for the city of london corporation said the pricing was "fair" and the charges would be reinvested to ensure access to outdoor swimming can continue. we're being encouraged to take our own pen or pencil and wear a face covering if we go out to vote today. here in london, we're electing a new mayor and london assembly — the people who scrutinise the mayor's decisions and hold them to account. polling stations have opened and close at iopm. four artists are in the running to design the first ever national windrush monument. it will stand at waterloo station and will be a permanent tribute to a generation of workers who came to the uk from the caribbean from 19a8 onwards.

the winning design will be revealed in october, and the final sculpture is expected to be unveiled next year. let's take a look at the travel situation now. on the central line, today's planned strike has been called off. southeastern trains have 10 minute delays between london bridge and new cross due to a signalling problem. on the roads — ali06 has the usual queues westbound from the a10 to arnos grove. north woolwich road is closed by london city airport because of a scrap yard fire. edgware road is down to one lane southbound by old marylebone road becuase of an unsafe structure. now the weather with kate kinsella. good morning. it's a chilly start this morning with temperatures close to zero in one or two spots. it's a largely bright start though with some high cloud mixed in there but some sunshine at least first thing. thicker cloud moving south as we head through the morning
7:30 am
bringing one or two showers blowing through on the north—westerly breeze but drier this afternoon with isolated showers but some sunshine. temperatures not impressive at around 11 celsius at a maximum. overnight tonight it is dry and clear. the windfalls a little lighter overnight tonight so the minimum temperature dropping down to low single figures, between two and four celsius. a chilly start to friday, but it is a bright day with some sunshine, fairly decent, and the wind a bit lighter but notice this deep area of low pressure starting to edge towards us and that arrives on saturday bringing wet conditions, but, it replaces that colder air with something a little warmer. so, temperatures on saturday and sunday making a recovery. into next week, they drop back down, just not quite as low as this week. i'm back with the latest from the bbc london newsroom in an hour. plenty more on our website at the usual address. bye for now.
7:31 am
hello, this is breakfast with sally nugent and ben thompson. there's a tense situation in the waters offjersey, where two royal navy patrol ships are tracking a protest by at least 80 french fishing boats. the fishermen are angry about post—brexit restrictions on access to waters they've fished for decades. the row escalated after a french minister warned thatjersey�*s electricity supply — most of which is delivered by underwater cables — could be cut. earlier we spoke to our correspondent robert hall, who's in the port of st helier this morning. the french assembled about a mile or so out from where we are now and we could see hms seven clearly about a mile from the french, but no effort to intervene and no fast ribs in the water. they are just standing off and keeping an eye on things and that was the brief when they were sent down to patrol and monitor and
7:32 am
maintain a presence and when boris johnson contacted thejersey government last night and announced they would be coming down, he said they would be coming down, he said they were a sign of unwavering support from the uk government. jersey is in a difficult position having to talk to the french, the eu and the uk to try and resolve this but at the moment there is no sign of any real progress being made. i cannot see the licences being withdrawn. the territorial waters are what they are and they are going to have to find something, maybe give the french a bit more time, to fulfil the conditions of the licences. who knows? people are very keen to resolve this and do not want to see this getting worse and certainly don't want to see the french government for carrying out the suggestion it might affect the undersea cable carrying electricity to jersey and guernsey, undersea cable carrying electricity tojersey and guernsey, so there will be intense diplomatic activity in the next few days. that will be intense diplomatic activity in the next few days.— will be intense diplomatic activity in the next few days. that is robert hall in st helier _ in the next few days. that is robert hall in st helier keeping _ in the next few days. that is robert hall in st helier keeping an - in the next few days. that is robert hall in st helier keeping an eye - in the next few days. that is robert hall in st helier keeping an eye on | hall in st helier keeping an eye on the situation. we should say that the situation. we should say that the two royal navy patrol vessels
7:33 am
are now in the area hms taymor and hms severn, and they are to the south and west ofjersey now and we are keeping an eye on that situation, but there is no activity on the water. you will know that this is because french fishermen have complained about being prevented from operating in british waters because of difficulties getting a licence to operate. so therefore they are keen to raise awareness of this in this protest, but again, as robert was telling us, it seems some boats are still able to get through. there had been debate about whether it would be a blockade or protest but we can confirm that they have let some boats out already this morning so it looks very much like a protest, and as ben was saying, the two royal navy vessels are just standing off some distance away. so we are expecting about 100 vessels, french vessels, to take part in this protest. robert is there and is

updating us on events as they escalate, and he was telling us earlier about prospects for any resolution. still very early days but whether there will be any breakthrough in this dispute that all came to a head after that threat to cut electricity supplies to the island that is delivered through undersea cables. we will keep you posted on whatever is happening throughout the morning. it's been postponed for more than a year due to the pandemic, but the countdown to the tokyo olympics has now finally begun. mike is already warming up, some weeks out for the olympics. what on earth are you doing? goad weeks out for the olympics. what on earth are you doing?— earth are you doing? good morning. we need to — earth are you doing? good morning. we need to warm _ earth are you doing? good morning. we need to warm up, _ earth are you doing? good morning. we need to warm up, it's _ earth are you doing? good morning. we need to warm up, it's about - earth are you doing? good morning. we need to warm up, it's about 5 i we need to warm up, it's about 5 degrees and i know it is early may, but it's freezing this morning but i'm in good company with two amazing team gb athletes, you have stopped, and i will stop as well. a team gb

7:50 am
this morning but chilly again and some of the showers are heavy and thundery with pale and some of them have been wintry through the course of the night, even to lower levels —— thundery with hail. this picture was taken in the highlands showing the snow at lower levels but the level will rise as we go through the day and it has come across a lot in scotland and we could see a bit more. we have had in the hills, england, wales and northern ireland and also some showers but away from the showers in northern ireland we can look at the beautiful blue skies with a fair bit of sunshine in ballymena, for example, this morning. through the rest of the day we can see how the showers filter further south getting into northern england and the wintry flavour will be in the tops of the hills and we also have showers in wales and the midlands pushing south—east and at the moment, more cloud and rain moving across the english channel. grazing the south coast of england but very much across the channel islands. temperatures between eight and i2, islands. temperatures between eight and 12, may be 13 degrees, but below
7:51 am
average for early may. through the evening and overnight there will still be showers around but there will also be a lot of clear skies, so it's going to be another cold night with some frost, so don't stick out your tender plants yet. these are the temperatures in towns and cities and in rural areas they will be a bit lower than this. so a cold and frosty start to the day tomorrow but a fair bit of sunshine tomorrow but a fair bit of sunshine to start and we will have some showers across the north and west and a lot of those are drifting east through the course of the day and becoming largely confined to eastern scotland and eastern england and you can still see a few dotted around in wales and north—west england. the temperatures between ten and 1a degrees. as we head into the weekend we start to see some change and we have a northerly or north—westerly wind this week which is why it has been cold and the low pressure comes in on the wind changes to south—westerly, a milder direction and watch the yellows and ambers representing the milder air move across the uk but it's notjust
7:52 am
milder air, across the uk but it's notjust milderair, it across the uk but it's notjust milder air, it will be wet and windy as well. so that system is pushing north and east and looking pretty wet on saturday and eventually it moves out of northern ireland and we will see snow in the tops of the hills ahead of the milder air coming in but we could see 16 in london but that very much depends on how quickly the system pulls away. if you are under cloud or rain in london, the temperatures won't reach that high. as we head into sunday, you can see how the low pressure and the fronts continue to move north but we have a cold front coming in from the west. that is going to produce a grey day across northern england, the midlands, down towards the south—west and also a damp one. on either side there will be sunshine and showers but if this edges a little further south the temperature in london won't reach 20 degrees because there will be more cloud around but still, wherever you are on sunday, it is going to feel milder than it has done. promises,

8:09 am
elections a little different. polling stations have been set up with safety measures. that means cleaning and screens, and one—way systems. there'll be a clean pencil for each voter — or you can bring your own — and you'll be asked to wear a face covering inside. there may also be limits on how many people can go in at once. the outbreak of the pandemic delayed elections, which were due to take place last year. so this year, there are a bumper set of polls across most of the country. in scotland, voters will elect the 129 members of the scottish parliament. in wales, all 60 senedd seats are up for election. in england, voters will choose around 4,650, 13 mayors and 25 members of the london assembly. there are also elections for 39 police and crime commissioners across england and wales, and there is a by—election to pick the new mp for hartlepool. the polls will be open, as usual, until ten o'clock tonight. anyone self—isolating because of coronavirus can nominate someone else to cast their vote.
8:10 am
applications for an emergency proxy, as it's known, can be made until 5pm. and if you have a completed postal vote, which didn't make it to the post box, you can hand it in at your local polling station until 10pm. when it comes to counting the results, that's going to take longer than usual too. different counts are taking place over several days, from tonight until monday. helen catt, bbc news. a murdered police community officer's dog has been tested for dna, in the hope it provides vital evidence in the hunt for her killer. 53—year—old julia james had taken herjack russell for a walk before her body was found in woodland in kent. simonjones reports. julia james walking her dog, toby. she was wearing these clothes, apart from the gloves, when she was murdered, her body found close to her house, her dog unharmed by her side. police are desperate to hear from anyone who saw julia, or her attacker. we've got a very considerable forensic strategy,
8:11 am
as you would expect. it does include the dog. that is being staged through the laboratories. i'm not in a position — it wouldn't be appropriate for me to give a running commentary on the many exhibits and the forensic strategy that we have under way. but of course, we've considered all opportunities around toby. the outpouring of grief in the community continues. the question people are still asking is, why? until things are a little bit more known, i feel a bit vulnerable, if i'm honest with you. whether it's connected, whether because she was a police woman, i don't know. you know, because there was, you know, something — somebody had a grudge against or something, or whether it was just purely, you know, random, who knows? the murder investigation is being led from here at folkestone police station. officers say it is their number one priority, and they're currently sifting through hundreds of pieces of information that have been provided by the public. police have released this map. they're keen to hear from anyone

who was in this area on tuesday last week. officers are continuing to advise local people to be vigilant and let someone know when they go out. this community, like the police, are desperate for a breakthrough. simonjones, bbc news, folkestone. police in pakistan are investigating claims that a woman from london who was shot dead earlier this week, was killed after turning down marriage proposals from two men. law graduate myra zulfiqar travelled to the country for a wedding two months ago. her funeral took place yesterday. no arrests have been made. a woman from mali in west africa may have made history, after giving birth to nine babies at once. doctors had originally thought the 25 year—old woman was carrying seven children, but were stunned to deliver two more by caesarean section in a hospital in morocco. the nonuplets — five girls and four boys — weigh less than a kilo each, and doctors say they're doing well.

is close to aviemore. it is quite high. we are also looking at other showers. some will be heavy, some thundery, some will have hale embedded in them. it will be chilly again. in between all of this you will find some sunshine. the snow level will actually rise as we go through the course of the morning. we have got showers across parts of wales, the midlands, heading in the direction of east anglia. we have got rain coming across the english channel, grazing southern counties of england. for northern ireland, a dry and bright start with some showers. some wintry on the tops of the pennines in north—east england in particular. we have got snow showers across parts of scotland. it will feel cool exposed to the northerly wind. as we move through the day we see more showers develop. the rain will pull away from the north—east, sunshine across the midlands into wales, northern ireland. fewershowers midlands into wales, northern ireland. fewer showers than yesterday. still feeling cold. temperatures eight to 12 degrees.

8:16 am
following the story of mark ormrod — a former royal marine commando who was told he would never walk again after losing both his legs and an arm in afghanistan. he set himself the goal of running five kilometres to raise money for charity, and smashed his target after a video of him training went viral. now he's onto his next, gruelling challenge — swimming across plymouth sound. breakfast�*sjohn maguire caught up with him. eyes on the prize. the objective of mark ormrod's latest challenge is drake's island, and to swim a thousand metres off the coast of plymouth. his mental strength is his greatest asset, self—evident when he insisted on parading with colleagues from a0 commando, after he'd been blown up in afghanistan less than five months earlier in 2007, leaving him a triple amputee. mark's most recent endeavour was running five kilometres
8:17 am
to raise money for reorg, a charity that uses a brazilian martial art to support veterans, military and emergency services staff. his current total stands above £260,000. his target is now 400,000. his drive was extraordinary, proved as a fall in training was posted online and went viral. running seems impossible, but swimming requires a whole new level of determination. you're just going to get in and see what happens. you've got the lads here anyway, so we've got safety in numbers. what i'm kind of hoping if we can get to a buoy and back, we're looking at 200 to 250, maybe 300 metres as the tide comes in. so that would be a step in the right direction towards one kilometre. you swam at the invictus games. so how is your swimming? terrible. and you know what's frightening is, i remember how tired i was after 50 metres in an olympic
8:18 am
sized swimming pool. now, this is a lot farther, with tides and currents, and creepy crawlies underneath, and everything else that comes with sea swimming. so, this is a new world to me. but it's for a good cause. so we're going to do it regardless. this is his first training swim. by his side is another former royal marine, his trainer, ben wadham. how i'm going to get him through this is i'm going to rely on mark's absolute mental capacity to dig out on things that most normal human beings couldn't. getting in the sea is hard for someone with all limbs. and it's a daunting challengejust to get into the sea and swim 100 metres out and back. conditions aren't in our favour. it's a bit cold and it's horrible currents. but we have got the luxury of buoyancy with the saltwater. sea swimming is hard enough, but mark has only one arm to drag himself through the oppressively cold water. he sets off at an impressive pace. clearly, ben's punishing dry [and training regime has been effective.
8:19 am
but gyms and pools can't fully prepare you for the sea, with its tides and currents. with mark struggling, and fatigue exacerbated by the cold setting in, the decision's made to return to shore. the current is particularly strong out there, so, it's dragging us that way. at that point we were just churning up, because we couldn't get enough power to get him moving through the current. so, we got in line with the buoys, but the current was dragging us off. and then we just worked to get straight back in. challenging. and that's the nature of the beast with the sea, i'm afraid. and the temperature. right. take the vest off. he's obviously physically and mentally robust, but today has proved invaluable, as the team learned about what kit and which techniques would enable mark to complete the one kilometre swim. it's cold. yeah. harder than you thought? oh, yeah. i've not really swum
8:20 am
with a current before, and the cold affected my forearm, which meant that my fingers couldn't close properly to swim. sow _ ah! but a good first day, though. i felt like i was flying. the first bit, you know, i wanted to go straight from the off to keep warm, and it felt like we were flying. and then all of a sudden we hit that current and stopped. and the current with the cold, my whole forearm cramped up. and honestly, it didn't seem a lot, but i learnt a lot in that first little bit there about the kit i need, what i need to work on, alreadyjust in that tiny little swim. so, a good first day. another monster effort. it will be. the end result will be. as a former royal marine, the corps' motto is per mare, per terram. mark has conquered the land. now he's taking on the sea. john maguire, bbc news, plymouth.

lawyers representing a group who swim at hampstead heath bathing ponds have written to the city of london corporation to challenge the introduction of new charges. they say the fees disproportionately impact disabled swimmers and those on low incomes. a spokesperson for the city of london corporation said the pricing was "fair" and the charges would be reinvested to ensure access to outdoor swimming can continue. police are trying to find the person who left a three—year—old with serious injuries after he was run over by an electric scooter. it happened around 6 o'clock on the evening of 17th april in feltham at the junction between the high street and manor lane. the child had been walking along the pavement with his grandmother when he was hit from behind by the scooter. the rider rode away. detectives are appeaking for witnesses. these were the scenes outside stamford bridge last night. it was after chelsea beat real madrid and made it through to their third champions league final.

8:50 am
prevalent at the moment but the forecast is a chilly one again. more heavy showers and some are thundery, some with hailstones and some wintry. the wintry nurse is generally in the hills although this morning we have seen it at lower levels and here is one of the early weather watchers pictures in the highlands and the snow level will continue to rise as we go through the day but we've seen quite a bit of it moving south through the course of the night on the tops of the hills across parts of england and wales and we've also got rain across the south—west which will continue to journey eastwards through the course of the morning and behind it will brighten up. the rest of us it is that mixture of sunshine and showers, rather like yesterday, heavy and thundery with some hailstones and some will miss them all together and get away with a dry and sunny day but a cool day with temperatures nine in the north to 12 in the south so still low for early may. and when you factor in the chilly northerly wind, it will feel cooler than the temperatures suggest. as we head through the evening and overnight there will be
8:51 am
showers, still wintry in the hills but there will still be clear skies and that will allow the temperature to fall low enough for some pockets of frost, so not a good time to be putting out your tender plants just yet. those are the temperatures you can expect in towns and cities and in rural areas it will be a bit lower than this. tomorrow we start on a cold and frosty note, but with a lot of sunshine. there will be showers from the get go across the north of scotland and some western parts of the uk, but through the day we will see further showers develop especially across eastern scotland and eastern england. temperatures tomorrow go up a touch, 14 or 15 in the south, 11 or 12 in the north except the far north of scotland where it will still be on the low side. as we head to the weekend, this is what is coming our way. this area of low pressure introducing fronts bringing rain and the wind will be a feature as well. salient, because it's coming from a different direction, a milder direction, namely the south—west and we have been used to a north or north
8:52 am
westerly wind in the last few days. all of this rain is going to continue to push steadily north—east and there will be hill snow with it and there will be hill snow with it and we will also have the south—westerly wind gusting at maybe 30 or 40 mph. south—westerly wind gusting at maybe 30 or40 mph. not south—westerly wind gusting at maybe 30 or 40 mph. not as strong as it was in the early part of the week. temperatures could get to 16 degrees in london on saturday and i say could, because it is dependent on how four —— far north of the rain takes the cloud with it. if we have prolonged sunlight —— sunshine, we properly will, but if we don't, we probably won't. 0n properly will, but if we don't, we probably won't. on sunday, you can see how the temperature moves northward, but there is a cold front that will bring cloud and rain across parts of england and wales and on either side of it there will be sunshine and showers but if it brightens up and the weather front doesn't sink further south, we could hit 20 degrees in london but across the board all of us will have a higher temperature than we have been used to. it really is a bit of everything.

lovely to see you this morning. you two, a lovely to see you this morning. you two. a pleasure- — for decades, the footballer ian wright was silent about the domestic abuse he witnessed growing up. now, in a powerful new documentary, he's sharing the details about what happened to him — both to confront his past, and explore the impact that growing up in a violent home can have. let's take a look. facing up to those memories has made me want to do something i've never done before. talk to others who have been through similar things. my father used to drink, and the more he drank, the more unreliable his behaviour was, so you never knew what was going to happen, whether it was like a physical thing on me, or whether it was something that would happen on my mum. charlie webster is a journalist and advocate for children growing up with domestic abuse. can you remember your first childhood memory? one where you thought,
8:54 am
this is really horrible? i came back from school and i had memorised exactly where the house made the noise so that my presence wasn't noticed. then, i don't know, i can make him less angry or he won't do these things to my mum, but to be honest, the physical stuff, it wasn't that to me that affected me, it was the constant emotional abuse. what happened to me wasn't my fault. not your fault, yeah. and that was a big thing... i watched that documentary last night and it is really powerful. in that clip we saw the broadcaster charlie webster talking to ian about her own experiences. charlie also helped to produce the documentary, and shejoins us now. good morning, charlie. thanks for havin: good morning, charlie. thanks for having me — good morning, charlie. thanks for having me on- _ good morning, charlie. thanks for having me on. the _ good morning, charlie. thanks for having me on. the little _ good morning, charlie. thanks for having me on. the little clip i good morning, charlie. thanks for having me on. the little clip we i having me on. the little clip we have chosen — having me on. the little clip we have chosen there _ having me on. the little clip we have chosen there is _ having me on. the little clip we have chosen there is a - having me on. the little clip we have chosen there is a really i have chosen there is a really important thing that runs like a thread through the film, which is for survivors of abuse, for
8:55 am
children, it is that difficulty of realising that it is not the child's fault and that is something that i think many people carry with them through their lives. and there is a moment where you talk about when you realised it wasn't your fault. how did you get to that point? i realised it wasn't your fault. how did you get to that point?- did you get to that point? i think it takes many — did you get to that point? i think it takes many years _ did you get to that point? i think it takes many years and - did you get to that point? i think. it takes many years and sometimes even when i was listening to the clip it makes me clammy and i still get those visceral feelings, no matter how much i talk about it. i remember when me and ian spoke for the first time and i was the first survivor he'd ever spoken to in this was on the phone before i came on board on the documentary and it was something where he said i don't understand what happened to me and what is it about me and it was exactly the same as what i felt for so long and every other survivor or victim i have worked with, you carry this shame throughout this adult hood as if it is something that was because you weren't lovable enough
8:56 am
or you're worthless and that is why it happened to you and to me it has taken a long time but the key for me and everybody is different, it has been acceptance and understanding that i was a child and i had no agency in it. it was not my fault and i was the victim of somebody else and it is ok to be a victim and thatis else and it is ok to be a victim and that is something i have had so many discussions with ian about because he really, really struggled with that and to me as well, i think we put on this brave exterior and just pushed and pushed through our lives, determined to prove the voice in our head that we are good enough and the impact of abuse makes you feel like you are not good enough and i think it takes a lot of time, but to me is facing it and looking at it and i think it's really brave that ian, is a 57—year—old, has gone back and thought i need to look at this and i need to understand what happened to me and understand the applications of my behaviour now as an adult
8:57 am
because of what i was brought up in. —— implications. and we see that in the film, and we see him travel down that road and there are moments where you see him realise his own behaviour in the past and he can now make sense of feeling is that he felt 20 years ago, where we see him losing his temper on the football pitch and having this enormous amount of anger. how much support have you been able to give him through the process? he have you been able to give him through the process?— have you been able to give him through the process? he has been incredible and _ through the process? he has been incredible and so _ through the process? he has been incredible and so have _ through the process? he has been incredible and so have the - through the process? he has been incredible and so have the other. incredible and so have the other survivors of the documentary because i brought different survivors and, as you will see tonight for ian to meet and i wanted him to meet a variety of different survivors and there is another person in the documentary called paul, and we saw men, and i think that is key, men of a certain age where you can look back and deal with these things and you don't have to live with that kind of awful burden forever, and speaking about it makes you realise
8:58 am
and this is what i hope happens tonight, that it is ok to feel like this and it is normal and ifeel like this and ian feels like this and there are millions of adult survivors out there that went through this that feel and carry these feelings and are triggered by certain things and it is important, like you said about ian 20 years ago getting angry. those feelings come up, but the more we talk about them is like opening this box and you have to be careful to do it because you put a lid on it for so, so long but that is what ian has started to do and we spoke all the time, going back to your question, we spoke all the time and we would have a rant at each other and he would be like, charlie, why am ifeeling like this? and i'm really proud that i was able to be part of it and, hopefully, help ian in some way and help some of the other survivors and hopefully tonight it will really help victims and survivors that have gone through
8:59 am
