6:03 am
could see more flooding, but we this was euston station in london, after dozens of trains were cancelled. continue to monitor that situation. storm dennis is likely last weekend's storm meant a miserable time for many people to bring the same. travelling. this was euston station in london after dozens of trains we re in london after dozens of trains were cancelled. storm dennis is let's get more now on that disruption for passengers likely to bring the same. with the independent‘s travel editor simon calder who is in our london newsroom. simon, what is the scale of the disruption we are seeing? we are going to have all the information you need for the weekend throughout the morning. in a moment we will speak to our reporter leanne brown, also, the storm has not arrived yet who is in the calder valley. but first to our correspondent so why these cancellations already? jon donnison, who is at gatwick airport for us this morning. john, you know, half term for lots of families and lots of people there's always pre—emptive heading out or back from holidays. cancellations, the world's this is a bit of a nightmare, isn't it, these flights being cancelled. there's always pre—emptive cancellations, the worlds to most overstretched airports, gatwick and heathrow. we saw british airways it is an extremely busy weekend, and cancel about 40 flights to and from sadly tens of thousands of passengers, not just sadly tens of thousands of passengers, notjust here at gatwick heathrow, 12 hours ago, up to 25,000 but across the uk, i going to have an extremely difficult and frustrating day, i think. easyjet passengers on easyjet suddenly found that their holiday flights had been have announced more than 230 of their flights have announced more than 230 of cancelled. that went out about 9pm theirflights in have announced more than 230 of their flights in and have announced more than 230 of theirflights in and out have announced more than 230 of
6:04 am
their flights in and out of the uk are going to be grounded. 96 of last night, those messages. today, those are in and out of gatwick. so far, over 230 flights on easyjet british airways similarly are saying is cancelled and of course for many that they are merging a number of schools, this is the beginning of flights. that will mean some the term. we have over 100 easyjet cancellations, we think around 50 of their flights flights cancelled tomorrow and an cancellations, we think around 50 of theirflights are cancellations, we think around 50 of their flights are going to be affected, mostly from heathrow. both astonishing number are to the alpine airlines have been saying, look, resorts in particular geneva and anyone who has been away in favour passengers can rebook for later in to have general know that about the the week. but obviously many people, most sought—after commodity in as you say, hoping to go away for aviation is a seat on a plane to either a winter ski break or some geneva at the start of the february half term. there's also lots of winter sun over the half term school cancellations to ireland, such as holidays, and travelling later in the week probably isn't going to work. it is not looking good, is it? the canaries, madeira, north africa and thousands and thousands of we will come back to you throughout the morning and get more information, because people will be people right now scrabbling around trying to find some other way of waking up this morning i guess getting to their destination. we wanting to go to the airport. 0ur reporter leanne brown is in have stories about people, it it mytholmroyd in the calder valley, where residents are still counting won't work if it it's have stories about people, it it won't work if it its north africa but might work for our european the cost of last week's bad weather. destination, driving instead. what are the rights? it is very clear and
6:05 am
good morning to you. people here in u nfortu nately easyj et, are the rights? it is very clear and unfortunately easyjet, and i have the village still very much feeling tackled them about the sets morning, is only revealing two of the the village still very much feeling the effect of storm ciara, where options. the first is to get a refund. almost nobody will want that roads were turned into rivers. you can see here behind me a skip which option. the second is to be rebooked just shows the scale of the damage. on an easyjet flight but the airline is saying we can't get you there to there's quite a few of these around note her wednesday, half way through here, because hundreds of homes and the holiday. the third option which businesses were flooded last week. the holiday. the third option which the european passenger rights will insist upon but easyjet is but they are used to flooding. they neglecting to tell people about is have had it in the past, and they that the airline must book your we re have had it in the past, and they were flooded in 2015. but here's the flight that the airline must book your flight on another airline or indeed thing. since then, millions of if you're going to the alps, on an pounds has been invested in flood express train. those are your rights defences. but they are not finished. and so the people whose flights they are still under construction. actually are today are in another so the river calder, where the main right old model. the cancellations which have gone out in the past hour threat is from, has been bolstered or so over 100 flights tomorrow, they have got a bit of time to find with large sand bags full of gravel and sand, to try and bolster the alternatives. 0ne track thank you very much. sounds like an absolute edges of the river. but still it has left people here this morning very nightmare. we spoke to a family worried, very anxious. they tell me
6:06 am
thatis worried, very anxious. they tell me earlier who were due to fly from that is the worst bit, the stress of waiting to find out what's going to edinburgh this morning. theirflight was cancelled so they drove through happen. but they have prepared as the night was two young kids to manchester, got on a different airline and try to think about how best they can. the doorways are they get home and a few days' time. boarded up on many of the properties here. they have got a community hub £800 for the flight, not cheap. here, drains have been cleared, premier league champions manchester sandbags have been refilled. so now it is just sandbags have been refilled. so now it isjust a city have been banned from competing sandbags have been refilled. so now it is just a waiting game. they are waiting for storm dennis to arrive. in the champions league for two years, and fined £25 million. and we will of course keep you the sport's european governing body up—to—date throughout the morning uefa found that the club had and let you know what is going on on committed "serious breaches" of its regulations. the roads, rail and flights, with city said they were "disappointed but not surprised" by what it called the "prejudicial" decision, and said they will appeal. half term starting for many people john's here with more. today. premier league champions manchester city have been banned from competing in the champions it is very technical, isn't it? league for two years and fined £25 million. the sport's european governing body, finances and money transferring uefa, found that the club had around. is unprecedented band, this committed serious breaches of its regulations. city said they were disappointed but not surprised by what it called is fairto around. is unprecedented band, this is fair to say. it will have big the prejudicial decision, and said they will appeal. implications for manchester city. john is here with more. they won't be playing the champions league, the elite club competition what can you tell us? this is huge, for the next two seasons, £25
6:07 am
million fine which is pocket money isn't it? it is a really big story for the club's rich middle eastern owners what it is the ban which will for manchester city and football more globally. prejudicial and have the biggest effect and knock on effect for the manager and the club. flawed they have called this decision by uefa. as you say, £25 they have said they will appeal to million fine, they will be banned the court of arbitration for sport, from european football's elite club and if you clearly have a strong case. worth pointing out that they said in the statement, manchester competition for the next two years. city, the cases been initiated by essentially what manchester city have been found to have done here is uefa, prosecuted and judged by uefa. circumnavigating uefa's financial whilst they were not surprised, they fair play rules which were clearly feel an independent approach essentially brought in to make sure that clubs didn't spend more than from a body such as the court of the earned. what city are accused of arbitration for sport might offer a kind of different result for them. doing is inflating a sponsorship deal in this case to make it look as what will happen, you consider the players they have, the star names, if they are breaking even to abide will they want to stay at the club? by those rules. it does leave a lot if they are not going to be playing in the champions league next season? of u na nswered by those rules. it does leave a lot of unanswered questions, of course, for manchester city. as we know, will pep guardiola? let not forget, this is the competition that pep guardiola, their manager, was this is a trophy competition he was brought in to try and win. they brought in to when following the success he had at previous clubs haven't done so despite all the success he has had, of course, at such as barcelona. he is entering previous clubs such as barcelona. the last year had his contract, where does it leave him? he says he probably considering his position at the end of the season, well they plans to stay and see out the
6:08 am
attract big—name players? the squad remainder of his contract, which is next season, that would be a fifth year, but what do they do if they perhaps needs an injection of new players when you consider they are are not playing in the champions league? and the players want to play trailing liverpool in the premier league this season. will this have in the club that is not getting implications for the premier league? champions league football? exactly, could the premier league act in will players want to be transferred, and they need to strengthen, as we light of this breach of financial fair play rules which were brought saw against liverpool, how will that in to try and limit the amount the affect them? there are lots of clu b questions manchester city face. and in to try and limit the amount the club spent a try and see them broke if this appeal is still going on next season, will they be able to even. the club can easily 40 pay the play or not? if they have appealed, fine but the knock on as if you're perhaps they will still be able to not in the champions league and you're not getting the players, your play next season, before a decision is reached. pending the outcome. but income falls, doesn't it? exactly, of course, i am sure they will want it will do. we will hear more about to hear this case. uefa will want them to hear this case quickly so this as it goes to the court of that perhaps it can be solved and sorted before they head into next operation for sport but it is all related to the way they have yea r‘s sorted before they head into next year's competition. i suppose if inflated the sponsorship deal, that fa ns wa nt to year's competition. i suppose if fans want to hear the final sponsorship arrangements will be try decision, but they might not want to circumnavigate the rules by the final decision, so what do you saying we're bringing in more money do? exactly, but as far as than perhaps they are. but it will a manchester city are concerned, they will be pleased it is going to this real impact and perhaps beyond the ban, think of effects will be felt independent body, the court of
6:09 am
arbitration for sport. they say they on the pitch and in the dugout with are not pleased by this ruling, but pep guardiola and his future. thank the case has been initiated, prosecuted and judged by uefa, so they will be pleased that an independent body can hear it. you. health officials in china say another 143 people have died health officials in china have from coronavirus, most confirmed more than 2500 of them in hubei province, new cases of coronavirus in the past 24 hours. the number of deaths where the outbreak originated. since the outbreak it brings the total number of deaths began in december has caused by the infection in china now passed 1500 to more than 1,500. the world health organisation will begin an investigation in china this weekend looking more than 66,000 chinese people at the disease's are now believed to have the virus. spread and severity. let's get the very latest the duchess of cambridge has on his from our correspondent said her parenting inspiration nick beake, who is watching is her "amazing granny" who involved her in arts and crafts, gardening and cooking as a child. the situation from hong kong. these numbers just keep these numbersjust keep rising. they do, certainly in hubei province, in her first podcast interview, where as you say it is the epicentre she said she wants to make sure she gives similar experiences of this outbreak, where it all to prince george, princess charlotte and prince louis. catherine was speaking began. the chinese authorities are after lauching a major survey stressing that outside of that on childhood last month, region, the numbers continue to as our royal correspondent sarah campbell reports. fall. but all along we have had to rely on trust, really, what the people are telling us in beijing. and talking of beijing, a very
6:10 am
do they like brussels sprouts too? significant development in the last i never knew that. the last few weeks have seen 24 significant development in the last 2a hours, because the chinese authorities are saying that anyone the duchess of cambridge who is returning to beijing, interact with children, their parents and carers across the uk. from a children's returning to the capital, after this centre in cardiff... extended lunar new year holiday a women's prison in surrey... a farm in belfast... period, basically has to quarantine and a cafe in aberdeen. themselves for two weeks. so they hello, everybody. catherine, who spent eight years either need to go into a hotel or exploring issues around young children and their development, their home. they are not allowed wants to spark a national out. and so that raises loads of conversation about the importance of the early years. but it's rare for her to speak questions about how are they going about her own views. to enforce this, and also does it at this nursery in south london, she wasjoined apply tojust by the host of the happy mum, to enforce this, and also does it apply to just chinese citizens, or happy ba by podcast. maybe it is people on their holidays on its latest edition, in china, who are now going to the catherine talks about her childhood and the experiences she hopes capital. we haven't got any of those to pass on to her a nswe rs own three children. capital. we haven't got any of those a nswers yet. capital. we haven't got any of those answers yet. but remember, beijing isa answers yet. but remember, beijing is a city of 20 million people, so this is a huge measure that they are for playing with us. bringing in. as you mentioned, the death toll continues to rise. the i had an amazing granny, who devoted a lot of time world health organization have been for playing with us. making the point that china, the doing arts and craft and going to hurt greenhouse to do picture there is different from the rest of the world, and they are doing arts and craft and going to her greenhouse to do urging caution, that people continue to use good hygiene and wash their gardening stuff and cooking with us. i try and incorporate a lot hands, to try and prevent the spread of the experiences that she gave us at the time into the experiences of this outbreak. but certainly if you are in hubei province, the place that i give my children now. where this all began, it remains a

6:13 am
is working at high pressure today. are already saturated from last as we heard from jon donnison at gatwick airport, 96 cancellations of weekend. as you mentioned, this area outbound and inbound flights there. also very badly hit our bristol has had flooding in the past back in 2015. since then, millions of pounds airport, 38 cancellations, luton, has been invested in flood defences, 48, south bend, stansted, and then a but here is the thing. they are not finished, which leaves the area bit few cancellations from edinburgh, more at risk of supply am joined newcastle, manchester and belfast —— this morning by two flood warnings southend. but crucially, what i am seeing is that it is the flights to for the area. first, this morning by two flood warnings forthe area. first, let's this morning by two flood warnings for the area. first, let's come to you. where is the risk coming from because it is notjust the river as geneva, to grenoble, to turin, it? the water comes from the hills, va ro na geneva, to grenoble, to turin, varona and innsbruck, which are and asa it? the water comes from the hills, and as a result of global warming being cancelled, along with a lot of which we all know about, it is a ca nary island flights being cancelled, along with a lot of canary island flights —— verona. to problem that is not going to go put you in the picture, i was in away. we need to manage the touch with one traveller last night, opulence, we do catchment plan not afamily touch with one traveller last night, a family who were setting off, just here but on the whole of the uk driving through the night to italy to get to their ski resort because because if we manage the flow of their trip to turin was cancelled water off the hail is, by the time it gets down here, if there is less late on friday. specifically which of it, the defences have less to do. airlines are affected, and we need that catchment plan. it is compensation ways, what are you
6:14 am
imperative we work together because entitled to, if anything? nobody is there is lots of things you can drop going to get cash compensation out in the hills. what is happening this of this, because it is not the morning? in the last we have had airline's responsibility. however, there is a strict duty of care, and co nve rse morning? in the last we have had converse catchment for confirmation the army is coming? they will be so actually, for people who are out deployed cloud along the valley in the canary islands, waiting for where they are needed so we will see theirflight home, in the canary islands, waiting for their flight home, if they are not when they arrive. there is the pressed for time, they are going to get a few extra days of enjoying the floodwater and groups along the sunshine, because the airlines have to pay for it. easyjet is by far the valley all day, helping people. worst affected, 234 cancellations people in this valley help each altogether. british airways so far other and there is a fantastic community and you are never alone. has cancelled 40 flights to and from have only got to ask help. what heathrow. and all of these are kind of proactive cancellations, so that talking of community, tell me about the airlines cancelled them in the what you were doing last weekend? we hope that the rest of the schedule can be protected. 0f we re what you were doing last weekend? we were running about getting very wet, hope that the rest of the schedule can be protected. of course, heathrow, the busiest two runway sandbagging properties, speaking to airport in the world, and gatwick the communities and just the busiest single runway airport in the busiest single runway airport in the world. the trouble is you are overwhelmed. it was quite traumatic, entitled to be rebooked on the first lots of pockets of flooding we were available flight, even if that is on not expecting, things courted by arrival airline, but there is simply surprise but community were out, as no space “—
6:15 am
well as the wardens and clearing arrival airline, but there is simply no space —— a rival airline. i have drains, we were stopping people from coming into the road, getting people seen 15 outbound geneva services on easyj et out of properties, just making sure seen 15 outbound geneva services on easyjet alone from the uk, and that people were safe. it is all we could is 3000 people who are trying to get to the french alps, the swiss alps, do because of the speed of it. we who are simply not going to be able we re do because of the speed of it. we were turning round and finding things happening in front of us that to get there, and i am not seeing any space in the next few days for we had not seen in 2015 which causes them to get to their destinations, i'm afraid. that was my final anxiety. it was upsetting. because you just are not expecting the level question, very quickly, is this expected to carry on into tomorrow? we had last week. quickly, what is at the moment, of course these are pre—emptive cancellations. what we saw last sunday was an awful lot of your advice this morning? to people? extra cancellation suddenly turning be prepared, check the weather, make sure you check the rainfall, make up extra cancellation suddenly turning up out of the blue. and of course, sure you check the rainfall, make sure you're signed up for flood ryanair hasn't warnings and alert if you aren't up out of the blue. and of course, rya nair hasn't cancelled up out of the blue. and of course, ryanair hasn't cancelled anything out of stansted. let's hope that already. most people in flood risk stays good, but things may unravel areas need to be signed up for those further. we have already seen a few warnings go to the government website and sign it because that is cancellations beginning tomorrow, luton to belfast, for example, and i your alert and warning, it it explains what is expected and people fear there will be more, i'm afraid. just need to be... thanks ever so thank you very much, the advice then to check before you travel. much forjoining us this morning.

not good when you end a forecast schools after half—time because it with dangerous and disruptive. apart from that, just great. we will keep is important to get children and washing because they are super you updated for weather across the spreaders. the other think schools country. we'll be back with the headlines need to be clear about is with half term coming up and people returning at seven, but now on breakfast, it's time for click. from travels overseas, really robust clear advice is given. we do not wa nt clear advice is given. we do not want pa rents' whatsapp clear advice is given. we do not want parents' whatsapp groups saying they have been here and we don't wa nt they have been here and we don't want them returning and we need to have robust guidance. and that would come from the fco website. it is clear where they have clear last week, youtube revealed incidents and high incidence. the for the first time just how much advice is being present for a while cash it's making parent company google. that was $15 billion last year. now. countries like japan and china and we are really careful that those announcing its results for the first people self isolate on return. also ta ke time seems almost a rite of passage people self isolate on return. also take time off from work. employers and to be flexible. i got a colleague who was due to be going to — the service has matured, grown up and is standing on its own two feet. malaysia but is now doing a podcast
6:49 am
and said because he can't present i visited youtube's london office to find out how it's come of age. kevin, youtube used to be the place his project there. we need to alter the way we work and live at the moment and it is important because we don't want an outbreak here and we don't want an outbreak here and where video went viral, we can control it with straightforward public health measures. can we do some if busting? we heard earlier the chinese but now it seems that a lot of that community are being affected by this happens on tiktok or facebook. how do you feel things have changed? and some are facing discrimination. what is your medical response that? the internet has gotten a lot bigger. it is much easier to make a beautiful video now i would say it would not be than it was ten years ago. tolerated in the nhs if any patient when you look at now what the most came up to any gp, be it malaysia or popular videos on youtube are, they're often not these one—off, viral hit videos, but coming chinese or anywhere, and said, i am from channels producing lots of content regularly and that worried about seeing you or was have large audiences. i think youtube has moved from this perhaps... it would not be unintentional kind of quick, short video thing which we all associate tolerated. it is xenophobic and with the early years of youtube to this sort of new world there is no place for it. to put it in which you have creators who have businesses and build into perspective, if this becomes a these audiences. and few could have predicted some pandemic, meaning it spread across of the most successful genres. the world, we are all equally tell me about asmr. asmr is short for autonomous sensory meridian response. likely, frankly, viruses don't care it is a genre of video people call about where we are from all the whisper videos where people whisper colour of our skin. we are all equal or do things quietly hosts. it doesn't matter where

6:52 am
no, i did not. at the time into the experiences that i give my children now. next up, gummy bear hacks: easy diy but also, the environments that dessert recipes from so yummy. you spend time in as well. 3.2 million views. in this video, melting gummy bears you know, a happy home, turns them into jelly. which you can use to create deserts. happy environment, safe environment. but as children, we spend a lot of time outside here's my attempt copying exactly and that is something i‘m passionate about. it is so great for physical what i saw in the video. turns out gummy bears are actually and mental well—being and really very thick and gloopy laying those foundations. when they are melted, not runny like liquid jelly. it is such a great environment will my spoon go into the jelly just as effortlessly to actually spend time building as in the so yummy video? those quality relationships well, no it will not. without the distractions. because, as you might expect, this gummy mixture at the bottom of the glass is rock solid. let‘s talk a bit let's have one more. more about this now. we‘re joined in the studio now this is from 5—minute crafts. with vicki psarias — founder and editor of the honest mum parenting blog. if you've run out of popcorn, in our london newsroom, why notjust shove an ear of corn kate stanley, from the nspcc. in the microwave thanks forjoining us this morning. why do think it is important for to make some popcorn? mums and parents in general to hear the experiences of the duchess of now, i'm sure i don't need to tell cambridge? we admire her and look to you that if you put an ear of fresh her and it is important she is using
6:53 am
corn into the microwave it won't come out as popcorn her and it is important she is using but will just her position to naturalise motherhood, to say that there isn‘t be hot corn. but i was willing to be proved a manual when it comes to wrong, so i tried it out in the name of science. motherhood. she has done this really when it comes out, it is warmer than before! detailed survey that is going to laughs i'm not the only one who has been intrigued by this — give us lots of answers as to where ann reardon is a food scientist and runs a cookery channel we are struggling as parents and how on youtube, and she's been investigating, too. best pa rents it's the fake news we are struggling as parents and how best parents can support children as of the baking world — this is faked baking. well. this period, zero to five is very critical. first—time motherhood the reason why that works is it's more clickable, is stressful and we don‘t know if we and clickbait content is currently what's currently working are getting it right. we don‘t have on the youtube the experience and lived experience. algorithm, and apparently working on facebook as well. i welcome this and this candid ann's been trying a lot of these conversation we will hear later on. recipes on her youtube channel, too. some people will see these photo there's one on so yummy where they make cake frosting out opportunities and say, does a of strawberry ice cream. now, ann tried it, duchess have the experience of and it didn't work. real—life parenthood? can we really i've also tried it, and it doesn't work. ta ke real—life parenthood? can we really take care advice when it is very having a food science degree, i know what properties different different from the way most of us are living as parents? you can see things have and whether that would actually work or not. it's actually not possible to whip up ice cream, because the fat content that catherine is really hands on as isn't high enough. a mum. she talks about that, the even if you get the most luxurious
6:54 am
ice cream you can get, press have detailed that she cooks it will not whip and it meals, she doesn‘t have a cook. she will not make frosting. that's an example of the faked ones, seems to take the position but there's also some seriously. yes, they will have a bit which are going to dangerous territory as well. more help, but that doesn‘t matter. one on 5—minute crafts, we need to hear celebrities and they've one where they put a strawberry people of all different backgrounds into bleach to make it white. if a child was to watch that and do and we want to hear about their it, they could consume a lot of bleach, which is obviously experience of motherhood. it shows a not good for them. real dedication to howick important there is also a so yummy video it is. it is —— i real dedication to where molten caramel is poured over a spinning whisk to make a sort of birds nest decoration to put on top of a dessert. molten caramel is hot — like, how important it is. look at the it's hotter than boiling water. so we made a box and put plastic storms here today, he coincided, wrap in front of it. also to things going on, how do we the hot caramel melted support children miss so they are right through it. able to talk about their emotions while we're here, those melted and be resilient so they can survive caramel cake decorations i showed, that's not the best way to make those, either. and be resilient so they can survive it takes a long time to melt one and thrive in this troubled world? sweet, and usually theyjust burn and stick to the pan. the professional — the thing the duchess cares about is and just as easy — way, according to ann, is to put your sweets in a blender, early years. put a thin layer of that the thing the duchess cares about is early yea rs. why the thing the duchess cares about is early years. why are earlier so on greaseproof paper and put it important was mike the early years in the oven forjust a few minutes. are where we build the foundations
6:55 am
that's a quick and easy way to make for who become. building a brain is caramel cake decorations that you can try at home. that was chris, like building a house. getting the and chris is here now. foundations of strong and stable are you didn't manage to bring me lunch, though, did you? really important. sorry to cut in, i should have saved you some of my sweaty egg flan! i'm not sure it looked that appetising! what did the companies have to say? you have worked closely with the duchess, what was that like and 5—minute crafts, which made the popcorn video that didn't pop, which like to work with? fantastic. they didn't reply to my email. and first media, which runs the so yummy and blossom channel, well, they invited me the duchess is very knowledgeable. she is curious about the early to their studios in la to prove that the recipes work, years. she brought together a group but they said i couldn't film them doing it. of experts to increase her own they told me they only put recipes understanding and guide her in how in the videos that do work, although i suspect not as shown she can really add value and make a in the videos because we tried it difference in the space. she spends and they didn't work, and the food scientist, a lot of time with families ann, she said some of the recipes, listening to their stories, but also there's no way they would work, looking at the scientific evidence even if you followed the instructions and used about what it takes to help children the most luxurious ingredients. so why are people so busy to thrive and how parents can reach sharing these videos? out for help when needed. what are i think they are obviously very the big five questions? one of the visual, they are nicely produced. things is, for example, do what extent do people think that early the companies would say that the purpose of this is entertainment, they are to give you maybe cooking childhood being about your genes and ideas and inspiration. the experiences you have an

and, crucially, most of the people environment to grow up in and who watch these videos aren't actually going to try the recipes, getting a sense of people's theyjust like the visuals. keeping up with the pace understanding of those issues. we heard the duchess talking in that podcast at the critical importance of technological change can be of relationships and that is something she is keen to understand difficult at the best of times, the extent to which people recognise particularly for parents who want to be able to keep track that. thank you very much. it is of what their children are doing, interesting this is in a podcast, it how much screen time they're having, whether all the content is not a speech or a letter, it is a is appropriate. and never has this been more true than when it comes to video games. very intimate and longform bits of so mark cieslak has been looking audio. what you make of it as a at this very problem with a spot strategy of world munication?m of help from one of the best—known audio. what you make of it as a strategy of world munication? it is lovely. it is intimate and you go faces in football. directly to the listener. it is father—of—three and ex—manchester often not found. they filmed some of united and england footballer it. it is informal. i think we need rio ferdinand is fronting a campaign to encourage parents to learn about the parental controls they can this. hopefully she is talking about the challenges of motherhood as use in their children's videogames. well. that is something that isn‘t focused on a lot and you suddenly i was someone who's been fairly involved in gaming have a baby and think you are the only person in the world who is throughout my adult life, struggling. i had a traumatic birth andi struggling. i had a traumatic birth and i know i felt quite alone and my children play, because there wasn‘t enough conversation around that. everybody and we thought we've got a good was... you feel that when you are a balance in our house — first mum that you are billed to do
6:57 am
you get in, you do your school work, you do your chores about the house, it. that is not the case. we need and have a balance between the gaming and being outside. the support. i hope she talks of the but having an understanding of what your children are actually doing, that's always so invaluable downsides as well as how we can to me to understand what i can help. that's four o'clock podcast actually do in terms of controlling what type of games that they're on. do you think parents have to take this afternoon. that‘s all from breakfast this more responsibility as far morning, but louise and roger as videogames and their will be here tomorrow from 6am. children are concerned? you have to take a key interest, until then, enjoy your day. good bye! like you'd take a key interest in your child's school life, take an interest in their game life because it's an integral part of their lives nowadays, like it or not. the get smart about play campaign is the work of the uk games industry trade body. it provides online guides about parental controls on consoles and computers, controls which can limit play time and prevent children spending real—world money on virtual items. well, we know that more than half of parents in the uk in particular have concerns about the amount of time their children and people in their care are spending playing games and on screens in general. this is part of an overall society digital literacy agenda. you know, so, really understanding boundaries, understanding how to protect yourself, understanding how to protect your privacy, it's part of a wider thing
6:58 am
in society that i think we need to really pay attention to. research suggests that up to 99% of children in the uk aged this is bbc news. the headlines at 10am. between eight and 15 play the uk braces itself video games regularly. for storm dennis. weather warnings are in place for many parts of the uk and the army has been compare this to research carried out deployed in west yorkshirete by the nspcc which found only 19% of parents with children and the army has been deployed in west yorkshire. between aged of five and 15 actually the army are on their way, they‘re use parental controls on devices gonna be deployed along the valley, where they are needed. which connect to the internet. so, we will see when they arrive. but some parents think there‘s lots of, there‘s floodwater that the games industry should bear groups along the valley and they‘re a greater response ability. are they trying to empower parents, going to be out all day. or are they passing the buck? they have a purpose the storm is scuppering and a responsibility to actually travel plans for many. hundreds of flights have been protect the mental cancelled and trains services are disrupted. well—being of our children. that is part of their manchester city say they‘ll appeal role as i see it. every company that is producing against their ban from european content for our children has to take competitions for the next two on that responsibility. seasons, after they were found to have broken financial fair play rules. features in games like loot boxes, randomised in—game virtual items the uk has held talks with china over giving beijing‘s state—owned which can be bought with real—world railway builder a role
6:59 am
cash, have been compared in constructing the hs2 rail link. to gambling, and have led to increased scrutiny of the industry. so does it need to clean up its act? we are businesses at the end of the day, and these parental controls and family controls are important, because you can turn off in—game spending. that's why the conversation is really important, so it is a shared responsibility. while learning about parental controls improves digital literacy, perhaps some parents who play video games with their children might enjoy the experience as well. well, that's it for the short version of the programme. the full—length show can be found on the bbc iplayer as ever. and throughout the week if you want to keep track of what the team are up to, you can find us on instagram, facebook, youtube and twitter at @bbcclick. thanks for watching.
7:00 am
good morning. welcome to breakfast, withjon kay and tina daheley. 0ur headlines today: hundreds of flights are cancelled as the uk prepares to be battered by storm dennis. heavy rain and flooding is expected
7:01 am
to lead to major disruption for a second weekend running in some areas. we will keep you updated throughout the morning. there are ample warnings in force from the met office. up to a month's with of rain falling on saturated ground in some parts of the uk. flooding is very likely on top of that. some very strong and gusty winds —— amber warning. a huge blow for manchester city. they are banned from european competition for two seasons after breaching financial rules. they say they will appeal. pregnancy, parenthood and precious times with her own amazing granny. the duchess of cambridge chats about her experiences for a new podcast. it is saturday 15 february. our top story: tens of thousands of air passengers are facing major disruption after their flights were cancelled overnight, as storm dennis brings chaos to half—term holiday plans. amber weather warnings remain in place and a major incident has
7:02 am
been declared in parts of west yorkshire, where the environment agency are warning hundreds of homes are at risk of flooding. let's get the latest now from our reporterjon donnison at gatwick airport. good morning. just how bad is it down there? well, look, i think it is going to be a pretty frustrating day for a lot of passengers. you've got people arriving here this morning not really knowing if they are going to be taking off. easyjet has announced that it has cancelled more than 230 flights in and out of the uk today. 96 of those are here at gatwick. now, this morning the wind is picking up a bit, but it is not too bad. i think if you are flying this morning, you might get away. but this afternoon there are clearly lots of cancellations. british airways, similarly, has said that it british airways, similarly, has said thatitis british airways, similarly, has said that it is cancelling flights. it has said it is going to be trying to merge flights, but we think about 50 flights will be grounded, probably
7:03 am
mostly at heathrow. now, what the airlines are saying is that people can try and rebook their tickets for later in the week. but of course, it is half term this week. many people won't be too flexible as to when they can travel. people will be trying to get away for a winter break, perhaps going skiing, and the truth is they mightjust have to forget their holiday altogether. but of course, it is notjust about the travel disruption. we've also got dozens travel disruption. we've also got d oze ns of travel disruption. we've also got dozens of flood warnings in place across the uk. after last weekend's pummelling from storm ciara, britain is now bracing for storm dennis. in hebden bridge in west yorkshire, so often the victim of flooding, people are once again preparing for the worst. the anxiety levels are a little high. but we've left the flood defences on the back door. we'll put them on the front door, and then we'lljust wait and see and see what happens, really, slowly move any valuables and things upstairs.
7:04 am
just down the road, in mytholmroyd, they're trying to shore up the only—part—built flood defences. it's terrifying. the impacts on the community is massive. we've lost all the shops, all the businesses. just over your shoulder, there's barbers, there's hairdressers, there's sainsbury's. all these places are ruined. they'll be ruined for months. it's going to happen again, and again. many rivers, this is the 0use in york, are already at their limits, and with some places expecting a month's worth of rain over the next 48 hours, they are unlikely to hold. if we see some of the repeat totals we saw last weekend in some of our more sensitive catchments, we could see more flooding. but we continue to monitor that situation. last weekend's storm meant a miserable time for many people travelling. this was euston station in london, after dozens of trains were cancelled. storm dennis is likely to bring the same. in a few minutes, we will have
7:05 am
the latest on how some of the communities thought to be most at risk are preparing for the arrival of storm dennis. and all the weather for us in the forecast very shortly. premier league champions manchester city have been banned from competing in the champions league for two years and fined £25 million. the sport's european governing body, uefa, found that the club had committed serious breaches of its regulations. city said they were disappointed but not surprised by what it called the prejudicial decision, and said they will appeal. john is here with more. what is going on? this is huge news for manchester city and their fans. as you say, a two season than from the champions league, £25 million fine. essentially have been accused by uefa of trying to circumvent their financial by uefa of trying to circumvent theirfinancialfair by uefa of trying to circumvent their financial fair play rules —— ban. essentially they came in to try and ensure the clubs don't spend more than they earn. what they have done is inflated a sponsorship deal
7:06 am
to essentially get around those rules. now, uefa have obviously charged them with this. manchester city have said they will appeal, and i think they feel that the court of arbitration for sport, who will hear that appeal, they feel it will bring a more independent approach. as manchester city have said in their statement, they feel the cases initiated and prosecuted by uefa, and judged by uefa, initiated and prosecuted by uefa, andjudged by uefa, and initiated and prosecuted by uefa, and judged by uefa, and they think that cas will bring a more independent approach and that they have a case to answer for. but there are more far—reaching questions about where this leaves manchester city and their manager, pep guardiola. let's not forget he has one year left on his deal and was brought in to try and win the champions league. will he stay around if they are not playing in the champions league next season? will some of their star players stay if they are not playing in the elite clu b if they are not playing in the elite club competition, and will they be able to bring in the star players as well that they need to kind of reinforce the ranks, having fallen short in the league against liverpool this season? will pep
7:07 am
guardiola want to be competing only for the premier league title? so many questions. what does it mean for the rest of this season? well, they will stay in the competition this season. they are not kicked out. if, iguess, this season. they are not kicked out. if, i guess, the court of arbitration for sport are still hearing the appeal and it is ongoing next season, we presume manchester city will be able to play in the champions league next season. but it isa champions league next season. but it is a lot of pressure on this season to deliver the trophy they really want. 0bviously they play real madrid in the champions league the week after next. a huge distraction, he will face a lot of questions, as will the players. so arguably a lot of pressure on them to try and deliver the trophy this season. but i think it is fair to say that the real effect of this band will perhaps be felt on the pitch as well. —— ban. perhaps be felt on the pitch as well. -- ban. and we will not know about it for ages, because sporting appeals go on for longer than the seasons themselves. thank you very much indeed. health officials in china say another 143 people have died from coronavirus, most of them in hubei province,
7:08 am
where the outbreak originated. it brings the total number of deaths caused by the infection in china to more than 1,500. more than 66,000 chinese people are now believed to have the virus. let's get the very latest on his from our correspondent nick beake, who is watching the situation from hong kong. anotherjump another jump in figures, anotherjump in figures, then. that's right, the latest figures from china ‘today‘ show that more people are dying from this virus and more people are catching it. the vast majority of them of course in hubei province, where this outbreak began. the chinese officials are saying that outside the province of some 58 million people, the number of cases continues to fall. but that doesn't stop a huge amount of concern within mainland china, and also here in hong kong. you may be able to see lots of people are wearing face masks. even though there is no compulsory means of doing so, and also the medical advice is that washing your hands
7:09 am
regularly is the most effective way of doing this. the big news we have got from china overnight is that they are trying to do something quite drastic. they are saying that anyone who is coming back to beijing, the capital, has to put themselves away for two weeks. so that raises big questions about how are they going to enforce that. and if you think about it, how many other countries would think that they have the power and the control to make sure that people are not going out onto the streets? another thing which is really interesting, we don't know whether this applies just to chinese citizens or whether foreigners, british people or other people, already in china but in another part of the country, whether they have to put themselves away for two weeks if they are going back to beijing. so lots of questions here this morning. we haven't got many a nswe rs this morning. we haven't got many a nswers for this morning. we haven't got many answers for now, but it gives you an indication ofjust how seriously beijing and china are taking this outbreak. and you mentioned the people behind you. everybody walking past seems to have a face mask on. that is really striking from where
7:10 am
we are in the uk. what is lifelike in hong kong? it is the middle of saturday afternoon there now. is this a normal day? can anything be described as normality right now?m is in described as normality right now?m isina described as normality right now?m is in a way, john. lots of concerts have been cancelled, for example. people going to church, the catholic church have said for the next two weeks they won't be any services. civil servants are working from home for the next ten days. i guess the other big thing is the kids are home from school for another month, because they are desperate to prevent because they are desperate to p reve nt a ny because they are desperate to prevent any sort of outbreak. the reason for that is that 17 years ago they had another coronavirus outbreak, that is the sars epidemic, more than 300 people died from that and that lives long in the memory, that experience. thank you very much indeed. and if you have any questions about coronavirus, send them in and we will put them to our gp dr aisha awan in just a few minutes. labour's emily thornberry is out of the party's leadership race after falling short of enough backers to move through to the final
7:11 am
stage of the contest. despite a desperate last—minute scramble ahead of the midnight deadline, the shadow foreign secretary failed to win enough support to make it through to the final ballot. frontbenchers sir keir starmer and rebecca long—bailey, along with backbench mp lisa nandy, had already made it to the next round. police are investigating a video published on social media which appears to show another car being driven on the wrong side of the road outside an raf base used by the american military. the video shows the car driving into incoming traffic, before swerving back into the left—hand lane. it is the latest of several reports of cars driving on the wrong side of the road near raf croughton, in northamptonshire, where19—year—old harry dunn died last year. the duchess of cambridge has said her parenting inspiration is her amazing granny, who involved her in arts and crafts, gardening and cooking as a child. in her first podcast interview, she said she wants to make sure she gives similar experiences to prince george, princess charlotte and prince louis.
7:12 am
catherine was speaking after lauching a major survey on childhood last month, as our royal correspondent sarah campbell reports. do they like brussel sprouts to? i never knew that. the last few weeks have seen the duchess of cambridge interact with children, her parents and carers across the uk. from a children's centre in cardiff, women's prison in surrey, a farm in belfast, and a cafe in aberdeen. hello, everybody. catherine, who has spent eight years exploring issues around children and their development, wants to spark a national conversation about the importance of the early years. but it is rare for her to speak about her own views. at this nursery in south london, she wasjoined by giovanni fletcher, who hosts the happy mum, happy baby podcast. 0n
7:13 am
its latest edition, catherine talks about her childhood and experiences she hopes to pass on to her own three children. i had an amazing granny who devoted a lot of time to playing with us, doing arts and crafts and cooking with us, and i try and incorporate a lot of the experiences that she gave us at the time into the experiences that i give my children now. catherine also talked about her passion for the outdoors, where she spent much of her time as a child. that passion was clear from the child—centred garden she helped to design at last yea r‘s garden she helped to design at last year's chelsea flower show, a garden that was enjoyed by her own three children. i don't think many people are going to be wanting to be in the garden this weekend. it will be pretty grim outside. a major incident has been declared in parts of west yorkshire as communities prepare for further flooding ahead of the arrival of storm dennis. it comes just days after storm ciara left hundreds of homes
7:14 am
and businesses underwater across the region. in a moment we will speak to our correspondent fiona lamdin, who is at the rnli's headquarters for us. but first let's cross to our reporter leanne brown in mytholmroyd in west yorkshire. what is the latest? well, this area is still very much feeling the effects of last week. we are surrounded by skips here, because hundreds of homes and businesses we re hundreds of homes and businesses were flooded when the roads were pretty much turned into rivers. but it is something that has happened here before, in 2015. and here's the thing. since then, millions of pounds has been invested in flood defences, but they are not finished. so as we speak, the river is being bolstered up with sandbags. i am joined now by the deputy leader of the local council. jane, how frustrating is that? very frustrating, we need to get the defences people need and want stop
7:15 am
before this weekend, storm dennis, we are doubling down on the defences and the environment agency has its protections in place. fingers crossed. the key message is about staying safe. will have time for postmortems afterwards but this weekend, graba postmortems afterwards but this weekend, grab a bag, but your medications and papers in it and make sure you're prepared and no heroics, please. what are you doing asa heroics, please. what are you doing as a local counsel to try to help people? we have our flood hubs open, the point in our villages and towns to make sure you have access to help, finding accommodation, sandbags, everything, and we know we can call on the army this weekend if we are in a serious situation and i hope we won't be. one person certainly hoping not to be in the same situation as last week is lisa, this cafe owner. what happened? i came down to secure the building and make sure the floodgates were on to try to salvage what we had inside
7:16 am
but from being dry, the cafe was waist deep in ten minutes and it was too late. i couldn't get out the front, i had to climb the 8—foot wall at the back. how are you feeling this morning? terrified, we have cleared everything back to break, but doing it again on monday morning is soul destroying. good luck and i hope everything works out stop it i know this village is very resilient. how do you cope when this happens? —— good luck and i hope everything works out. i know this village is very resilient. since the last floods we have put money into building floods, you look at the cafe, the electrics are above waist height and we want to get people back as quickly as possible. neighbouring businesses are open after having quite high up water but then there's also homes and you've got to make sure we're rebuilding homes and making sure we look after them. you do it because you have to and we come together and yorkshire grit makes sure it happens. thanks,
7:17 am
josh. it's now a waiting game and people say the stress of waiting for storm dennis is the worst. thanks very much. fiona lamdin is at the rnli's headquarters in poole for us this morning. fiona, what's the message there? we saw dramatic pictures last weekend of some of the rescue attem pts weekend of some of the rescue attempts going on out at sea, and more big waves for coastal communities this weekend? yes, thanks. we are at poole lifeboat station and as you can see in the harbour at the moment, things are pretty quiet. if you look at this window, you'll see. the wind is picking up out in the english channel, and things will be getting much rougher. if we can come onto the boat we can meet ed davis, who isa the boat we can meet ed davis, who is a helmsman, you're an engineer in the day but you volunteer in the week and you've been it on the weekends for over 15 years. tell us why you do that. i love to be part of the station and i guess it is a nice thing to be able to help
7:18 am
people. now you are a helmsman, so if the call comes today, you will be out there driving the boat. tell me, is it terrifying? it is quite scary out there. the sea is hugely unpredictable, especially when the weather is like this, you've really got to have your wits about you. 0ften got to have your wits about you. often people think... " ah..." you've been doing it for 15 years and it is still scary, isn't it? absolutely, the conditions are dangerous but what is reassuring to know is we are on a bit of kit designed especially to cope with those conditions. how do you drive this boat differently when you are ina this boat differently when you are in a storm? if we are out there, we have a few things. down here i can fill a water tank in the front of the boat and that puts around 270 litres of water up into the bow. the boat and that puts around 270 litres of water up into the bowm all comes in here? it helps keep the front end of the boat down. and
7:19 am
something in the back, tell us about the back. if worst came to worst and we did capsize, at the back we've got a big airbag and if the crew found themselves in the water, they can inflate this and it will fill with c02 and it will bring the boat back upright. thank you for that, ed. the message is for people to stay away. ross, tell us quickly, this is worst—case scenario and you don't wa nt worst—case scenario and you don't want people near the sea? the main advice this weekend is its looking horrible, a nice weekend to stay—at—home with friends and family but if you're unexpectedly in the water, relaxed and float and if you need assistance, dial 999 and ask for the coastguard and they can ask one of our rnli lifeboats to get you. thanks, ross. they will be training hopefully and not responding to an emergency this weekend. thank you very much, what a great job they do. you see the pictures
7:20 am
from last weekend and my goodness, the bravery involved! so, what are your rights if you're one of the thousands of passengers who've had their flights cancelled today? the independent‘s travel editor, simon calder, joins us now from our london newsroom. simon, that figure of cancelled flights seemed to be going up, we last heard it was 230 easyjet flights. watch the picture across the country as you know it now? we're still seeing what's called the pre—emptive cancellations, these are effectively to create fire breaks in the service. gatwick airport, the busiest runway in the world. if they have two reduced the flights going in and out, that can cause problems. as you say, 230 flights cancelled —— have to reduce. in the last few minutes we've seen extra cancellations at heathrow but these aren't particularly significant, not great if you're booked on them, but air france to paris and aer lingus to dublin and swiss to zurich, far
7:21 am
more concerning is the vast number of easyj et more concerning is the vast number of easyjet cancellations, including 96 to and from gatwick airport. 48 to and from luton and 38 to and from bristol. now, most of those are holiday flights with families going off for winter sun or a ski break. i'm really concerned about what people are being told. i've contacted easyjet about this and asked them for an urgent response. if your flight is cancelled then you're entitled to three things, it's your choice. you can have a full refund. of course, most people won't want that option, they want their holiday. you can transfer to another easyjet flight, but i'm typically being told by lots of people on social media, "help, we are told nothing until wednesday". and crucially, this is what easyjet has forgotten to tell passengers, it has forgotten to tell passengers, it has to buy you a ticket on another airline if it can't get you to destination in reasonable time. there are still tickets available on
7:22 am
lots of flights to the alps and the canaries. 0bviously lots of flights to the alps and the canaries. obviously the demand is intense but easyjet isn't telling people about this crucial entitlement to be booked on another airline. simon, thank you very much for that comprehensive update. simon calder. it's going to get busy, isn't it? not too bad at the moment but over the next 36 hours it's going to be horrible pretty much everywhere. i think we need a pre—emptive weather forecast. here is ben with a look at this morning's weather. thank you to both of you. as we've heard, storm dennis is expected to cause all kinds of problems with the wind is starting to pick up close to the english channel coast and parts of scotland. wind will be part of the story this weekend but i think rain may be the bigger part of the story and the met office has issued an amberwarning for story and the met office has issued an amber warning for some parts of the uk with the potential for a month of rain this weekend, and that's likely to cause flooding.
7:23 am
quite an impressive satellite image and you can see this developing of cloud turning into a curl. an area of low pressure that's been deepening and intensifying rapidly and is going to be with us pretty much through the weekend, so a long lasting spell of strong winds and various bouts of rain to come as well. let's get into the detail, and at the moment there's some dry —ish weather around in central and eastern parts and we see some rain starting to push in from the west and then heavier rain. for many it's the story of things getting wetter and wetter as the day goes on and windier as well. one exception to that wetter and wetter theme, in parts of western scotland and northern ireland, it may drier and brighter dominate brighten up later but those winds easily getting to 40,50, 60 but those winds easily getting to 40, 50, 60 mph but those winds easily getting to 40,50, 60 mph widely. —— brighten up 40,50, 60 mph widely. —— brighten up later. 70 mph in exposed gusts. ten to 13 degrees, mild, but the
7:24 am
temperatures won't be the memorable thing, it will be the wind and rain. through tonight, the band of rain is slow—moving in england and wales. noticed the greens, there's likely to bea noticed the greens, there's likely to be a line of torrential downpours accompanied by squally and damaging winds. in northern ireland and scotland, clear spells and wintry showers. quite a clear night but very mild further south and east, where we will have more rain to content with during tomorrow, really dragging its heels. should eventually clear but then sunshine and showers, some will be heavy and wintry over high ground in the north. another wintry day tomorrow, perhaps not quite as windy as today but gusts like these could still cause a few problems and it's going to be chillier as well with colder air spreading from the north through the day, so by the afternoon, attem pts the day, so by the afternoon, attempts between 6—10. worth mentioning sunday night as well, with storm dennis, the area of low pressure goes past the north, and the white lines are squashing
7:25 am
together and a swathes of strong winds affecting parts of scotland. we have the wind but also the rain. these areas of high ground covered by the met office amber warning, and there's the risk of flooding and disruption as well. the new coronavirus has been described as public enemy number one by the head of the world health 0rganization with more than 66,000 people now infected in china alone. but how much of a threat is covid-19, as but how much of a threat is covid—19, as we have to call it now, here in the united kingdom? we are joined by a gp, whose written two papers on the virus. good morning. shall we start with that question, how much of a threat is it right now, right here? at the moment we know that we've got returning travellers in london who have brought it back in, and we know that there's a gp in brighten who was infected and we know there was a
7:26 am
businessman in brighten, so we have a small outbreak here but nationally we have really good measures in place to make sure this doesn't get much bigger —— in brighton. 0ne place to make sure this doesn't get much bigger —— in brighton. one of the things i would like to emphasise about this new covid—19 is it's nowhere near as contagious as the... not anywhere near as deadly as the sa rs not anywhere near as deadly as the sars outbreak not anywhere near as deadly as the sa rs outbreak in not anywhere near as deadly as the sars outbreak in 2002/2003. that had a mortality rate of 20%. this is approximately 1%, so much less lethal. the problem with this is it's much more contagious, so what we need to do is really sensible public health measures and we need to all take responsibility for making sure we wash our hands and we make sure our children know how to wash their hands, that people are really clear about when it's ok to go into work and keep children off and there needs to be flexibility from employers to ensure that people who are worried and who have travelled to areas of high risk don't go in
7:27 am
unnecessarily. there needs to be a rethink of the way we've been work, life and making sure we try to contain this. before you take us through all of the steps that we could be taking, sensible advice, the one thing you have this time round that you didn't have with sars, there is a lot of misinformation spreading on social media from the completely bonkers to mums, whatsapp groups, people circulating information not maliciously but information that isn't true. one of the biggest challenges identified is misinformation and sars in 2002/2003, there wasn't social media and people got their information from newspapers and medical journals. now most people are getting their information from twitter and eminent epidemiologist, but lots of people are getting their stuff from twitter and facebook and whatsapp groups that are just forwards. misinformation...
7:28 am
considering we don't have a tube for this and treatments for this, when the who said misinformation is the biggest risk, it would perspective how much will cause problems —— a tube. i would urge people not to share stuff they‘ re tube. i would urge people not to share stuff they're not sure about. in terms of social media information? and with family and friends, it causes unnecessary stress. this is no more infectious or deadly than the flu. we don't have an immunity to it because our bodies... nobody in this country has been exposed for, so it's likely to infect more people, but it's a very mild respiratory infection —— exposed before. the same people are at risk as they would be for the flue. there is positive information coming out of wuhan. —— the flue. a paper released a few days ago looked ata paper released a few days ago looked at a small group of pregnant women who had the virus, covid—19, as well as being in the final trimester of their pregnancy and they didn't pass their pregnancy and they didn't pass
7:29 am
the virus on to their children. all nine were born via a c—section and they were born healthy and there was no virus present in the breast milk. that's positive. we don't know what happens in the first two trimesters but we have to wait it out and see what happens in the next few weeks. information is key and we need to share that responsibly. the problem for the authorities here and around the world is doing it responsibly and not scaring people. we're talking about a handful of cases here but when we talk about washing our hands properly, it sends a message that i could get it by touching a table but the chances at the moment are very tiny, aren't they? let's put it in perspective, most people in this country are at far greater risk of things like pneumonia from influenza. get your flu jab. you're much more likely to get months if you haven't had your mmr get months if you haven't had your mmpr get months if you haven't had your mmrjab and you're much more likely to get your children having measles if they haven't had the mmr. that's the reality we have at the moment.
7:30 am
coded 19 might come, and it probably will do at some point, but it will be no different to the yearly flu —— covid—19. most will recover with a very mild respiratory infection. if you want to protect your family, immunise them, vaccinate them, wash your hands and there is a great video on the world health 0rganization website. wash for 20 high and 30 seconds, sing happy birthday twice and teach your children to do that —— wash for 20 high children to do that —— wash for 20 mgh30 children to do that —— wash for 20 high 30 seconds. thanks, we will get more from you later. doctor aisha awa n more from you later. doctor aisha awan will be with us from 9:30am so if you have concerns or questions about coronavirus, send them in. e—mail or tweet us and we will put them to her. ask anything, because there's some real basic stuff we are all struggling to get our heads around and it goes on day after day in the news. let us know this morning and we will ask doctor aisha awa n
7:31 am
morning and we will ask doctor aisha awan later. don't look so worried, you'll be fine! you'll the answers! —— you'll know the answers and. hello, this is breakfast, withjon kay and tina daheley. good morning. here is a summary of today's main stories from bbc news: tens of thousands of air passengers are facing major disruption after their flights were cancelled overnight, as storm dennis brings chaos to half—term holiday plans. amber weather warnings remain in place across many parts of the country.
7:32 am
in west yorkshire, a major incident has been declared, with the environment agency warning hundreds of homes are at risk of flooding. health officials in china say another 143 people have died from coronavirus, most of them in hubei province, where the outbreak originated. it brings the total number of deaths caused by the infection in china to more than 1,500. more than 66,000 chinese people are now believed to have the virus. labour's emily thornberry is out of the party's leadership race, after falling short of enough backers to move through to the final stage of the contest. despite a desperate last—minute scramble ahead of the midnight deadline, the shadow foreign secretary failed to win enough support to make it through to the final ballot. frontbenchers sir keir starmer and rebecca long—bailey, along with backbench mp lisa nandy, had already made it to the next round. police are investigating a video published on social media which appears to show another car
7:33 am
being driven on the wrong side of the road outside an raf base used by the american military. the video shows the car driving into incoming traffic, before swerving back into the left—hand lane. it is the latest of several reports of cars driving on the wrong side of the road near raf croughton, in northamptonshire, where19—year—old harry dunn died last year. there is only one big sports story eve ryo ne there is only one big sports story everyone is talking about, manchester city. a two year ban from the champions league. we await the results of the court of arbitration for sport. so many unanswered questions when you consider where this is going to leave their manager, pep guardiola, transfers, the futures of their big—name players, and someone who can answer
7:34 am
those questions is rob wilson. i was saying there it was pretty seismic. manchester city were expecting this, judging from what they said in their statement, but this will have far—reaching implications, potentially, for the club. it is absolutely huge, and i think seismic is the best word for it. while manchester city will have expected what was coming, i don't think they really expected a two year ban. put the find to one side for a moment, because that is a bit of change for them, really. if you look at how this will have implications for other teams across european football, their player recruitment strategy, not to mention whether the manager is going to stay on, whether they will have a team that doesn't play champions league football, for example, it will be murky waters for them to wade through. and it relates to them breaking the fair play rules brought inafew breaking the fair play rules brought in a few years ago to make sure the clu bs a re in a few years ago to make sure the clubs are living within their means. the understanding from this is that manchester city have essentially inflated a sponsorship deal. they have tried to make it look as if
7:35 am
money coming in this from legitimate means when actually it is coming from the club's owners. to really oversimplify this, what they have done as they have said we have a big sponsorship deal with etihad airways, they sponsor the shirt and that kind of thing, and instead of doing a deal with organisation and etihad, organisation b, the money has come from organisation d, e and f. that is what financial fair play tries to stop, making sure you can wash your face financially based on your own and income which you are able to generate, not depending on those other investments. that is important in the context of football. we have sat here before talking about bury football club, for instance, and what happens when that financial investment doesn't come through. it perhaps has some ropey regulations here and there. come through. it perhaps has some ropey regulations here and therem this band fair? —— ban. is ita
7:36 am
ropey regulations here and therem this band fair? —— ban. is it a fair response to what it has been claimed they have done? i think the issue for me is more moral and ethical. we can argue about whether the regulations are legal or not, but manchester city signed up to those regulations. they agreed to play with that set of rules, set up a pitch, for example. what they have done over the last few years, it seems, is that they have tried to have a bigger goal at the other end that they can score into, which is not what the other clubs have done. imight not what the other clubs have done. i might have gone a little bit further and i might have gone a little bit furtherand given them i might have gone a little bit further and given them a bigger ban and a biggerfine. further and given them a bigger ban and a bigger fine. when you look at other teams, there is and a bigger fine. when you look at otherteams, there is a and a bigger fine. when you look at other teams, there is a status quo that you can't break into this european elite group. if you are a team like eve rton, european elite group. if you are a team like everton, you are not allowed to put money in. they have breached these regulations, apparently, so they should be punished accordingly. will other clu bs punished accordingly. will other clubs be thinking what about us next? i think there is one over the in this channel in paris which will be looking at this. they are
7:37 am
obviously really well— positioned with ufo, so it will be interesting to see whether uefa decided to cut their teeth with psg as well. and what about the fans on this? there isa what about the fans on this? there is a lot of disgruntlement from manchester city fans saying this is a campaign by uefa to stop them convincing, because teams like manchester united and bayern munich and juventus are manchester united and bayern munich and juve ntus are always manchester united and bayern munich and juventus are always trying to stop them competing. the issue i haveis stop them competing. the issue i have is city had £1 million of investment prior to takeover in 2008, had these regulations put in and really should have limited investment accordingly. and manchester city back in premier league action and champions league action. and they will appeal against it. and you never know how long that appeal process is going to take. thank you very much for your time this morning. to matters on the pitch.
7:38 am
more var controversy in the premier league last night, with wolves playing leicester. wolves thought they had narrowed the gap on the top four with this goal from willy boly on the stroke of half—time, only for it to be ruled offside. not that it's easy to spot. pedro neto on the far side was ruled against. something has to be done, and let the people that understand make something, to again the game have this joy of celebrating. because we're in danger of becoming robots, and football is not about that. not leaving the fans happy there either. you may remember on wednesday england's cricketers lost the opening t20 match against south africa by one run. well, yesterday they came out on top in another absolute thriller to level the series. moeen ali was in great form with the bat, as england set their hosts a target of 205, and south africa nearly
7:39 am
chased it down. but, needing three runs from the final ball to win, dwaine pretorious gave tom curran a straightforward catch, as england won it by two runs. we wonder what will be dished up in the decider in centurion on sunday. we have talked a lot about the return of the former australia rugby union star isreal folau, and his controversial signing to play rugby league with catala ns dragons. well, he is set to make his super league debut today. folau was sacked ten months ago for posting homophobic comments on social media, but dragons head coach steve mcnamara explained to bbc sport exactly why the club decided to sign him. as a coach, my decision was based around his rugby league ability, his ability to add positivity to the dressing room, to really increase our opportunities of winning. and it was based around that,
7:40 am
and being a good person. having spoken to him in—depth for a long period of time over a number of occasions, i felt it was right, and i felt he deserved the opportunity. it shouldn't have been a life sentence, what he was given, and he gets an opportunity here in the south of france. he does indeed, after his much anticipated arrival. he will take to the field for the first time. we will be reflecting obviously on the big news this morning regarding manchester city throughout the morning, and i think it is fair to say certainly from what rob was saying, far—reaching implications which will be felt notjust beyond the club and what comes from the ban, but on the field as well. potentially players coming back after the winter break and talking about their futures, wanting some assurances as to what is going to happen. they could be real impact felt at the club with regards to not just the club, but the manager as well. the duchess of cambridge has said her parenting inspiration is her amazing granny, who involved her in arts and crafts, gardening and cooking as a child. in her first podcast interview, she said she wants to make sure she gives similar experiences to her children, prince george,
7:41 am
princess charlotte and prince louis. you won't be able to hear the full interview until later this afternoon, but we can let you hear a little bit of it now. ifi if i take the experience of my own childhood, coupled with what i know now, what i have learnt from the experts and the sector, i think there's a few things that really stand out to me. one is quality of relationship. so those moments that you spend with people that are around you, i think i remember that from my own childhood. i had an amazing granny who devoted a lot of time to playing with us, doing arts and crafts and going to the greenhouse, doing gardening stuff, and cooking with us, and i try and incorporate a lot of the experiences that she gave us at the time into the experiences that i give my children now. they also... the environments that you spend time in, as well. you know, it is a happy home environment, safe environment. but
7:42 am
as children we spent an awful lot of time outside, and it is something i am really passionate about. i think it is so great for physical well—being and also mental well—being, and also really laying those foundations. but it's such a great environment to actually spend time building those quality relationships, without the distractions. let's get more on this now from the royal commentator victoria murphy, whojoins us from our london newsroom. very good morning to you, victoria. how significant is this? because in the duchess's nine years as a royal, we haven't heard her speak like this, as freely and openly, and on a podcast. absolutely, and in so many ways, the fact that this has happened is remarkable in itself. we so rarely hear members of the royal family talk about their personal lives. as you say, kate has given a handful of very short interviews, but now we have her sitting down for more than 30 minutes, talking about all aspects of her life. in many ways it is quite a brave decision,
7:43 am
should because she is very exposed there, talking about just should because she is very exposed there, talking aboutjust herself. i think when people listen to it, they will feel the genre serves her very well because it gives her an opportunity in that sort of quite relaxed environment, to really demonstrate firstly her knowledge on this area, which does really come across when you listen to it. she has been working on this for eight yea rs has been working on this for eight years now, and i think you can really tell that she has built up quite a substantial knowledge. and also, of course, talking about her family life, and that is the bit that people will latch onto. people are always very interested in. but i do think the strength and this will be its honesty. the openness. i think when you listen to her speak, you feel that she is being very genuine and really telling us what her philosophy is and what she hopes to pass on. what i am interested in is the fact you have already listen to it before it is released at 4pm this afternoon. i know you can't give away too much, but can you give usa give away too much, but can you give us a sense of your impression of it,
7:44 am
what you heard? i think she comes across what you heard? i think she comes a cross very what you heard? i think she comes across very well. i think she comes across very well. i think she comes across as very genuine, across very well. i think she comes across as very genuine, very caring. i think her knowledge in this area very much shines through. she has a lot of opportunity in that half—an—hour to come back time and time again to the things that she has learned, and the things that she hopes people will take away from this. and you do actually get a sense that there is a real desire on her part to pass on what she has learned to people, and i actually came away from listening to it with a couple of thoughts about my own family there, to be honest. so i think it is something that people will find very interesting to listen to, and there is a lot of stuff in there about her own experiences, and herfamily. and there about her own experiences, and her family. and i there about her own experiences, and herfamily. and i think people might be surprised by that. i think is a royal she is always treading that line, of course, about being open and honest about universal experiences, but also acknowledging that her situation and her circumstances are very unique. i think people will respond very well to this, because it is clear that she is giving us some real insight.
7:45 am
and what more do we know about who she chose, who she picked, ms fletcher, to speak to? well, i think giovanna was surprised at how she got so much information there out of the duchess. i don't think she was perhaps expecting quite so much honesty from her. and i think it is a reflection really of the fact that i think kate is very keen to emphasise the work that she has been doing in this area, and this podcast is an opportunity for her to reach out to a lot of people who are interested in families in early yea rs. interested in families in early years. i think the podcast has a bigger audience and people who are interested in raising children listen to it. so that was a motivation, perhaps. but also i think the fact that she did a podcast, the opportunity to speak at length, i do think that genre worked very well for her. it was a very relaxed, very nice discussion. thank you very much. that episode of happy mum, happy baby, featuring the duchess of cambridge, will be available to download from 4pm.
7:46 am
if you have any plans to leave the house over the next 36 hours, you need to pay attention. here's ben with a look at this morning's weather. it's looking pretty grim pretty much everywhere, isn't it, ben? absolutely, all parts of the uk will have a tricky weekend with travel or outdoor plans, courtesy of storm dennis, a week after storm ciara last weekend. this storm dennis will bring gales white widely but also a lot of rain and that's the main concern, the met office has issued an amberwarning for concern, the met office has issued an amber warning for the risk of flooding in some parts of the uk. this is the satellite, see this pipeline of cloud and how it's been developing. this curl becoming more and more intense, a rapidly deepening area of low pressure spinning around to the north of the uk through the weekend, feeding various pulses of rain in a cross many parts of the country, particularly england and wales, could see flooding rain, and the
7:47 am
strong winds continue through the weekend and the winds picking up our already, 50 high 60 mph wind gust or western and southern coasts —— 50 high 60 mph. turning red as the bursts of rain head eastwards —— turning wet. these kind of wind gusts, you will see quite widely. 40,50, 60 gusts, you will see quite widely. 40, 50, 60 mph gusts, you will see quite widely. 40,50, 60 mph in some coasts in the west and north could get to 70 mph or even a bit more. a very mild day but i don't think the temperatures will be the most memorable part of the day. i think the wind and the rain will be. through the evening and overnight, this band of rain will be very slowly moving across england and wales and noticed this line of bright greens here, that represents a line of real torrential downpours accompanied by squally winds and gusty winds, could cause a bit of damage. slightly different for northern ireland and scotland,
7:48 am
wintry spells and showers but rather chilly. mild in the south—east, where we start on a soggy note. that rain will takea where we start on a soggy note. that rain will take a while to clear but for most tomorrow, a brighter day with sunshine but also showers. some will be heavy and wintry over high ground in the north. another windy day but perhaps not quite as windy as today and a slightly chillier one, cold air spreading from the north as the day wears on. one more thing to mention, sunday night, as this area of low pressure slides through, on its southern flank, see the isobars squashing together. another sway of strong winds across parts of scotland and that could cause problems —— suede. amber warnings from the met office for the risk of flooding, disruptive and possibly dangerous weather out there —— another swathes of. i'm not quite sure what you are being thanked for but thank you!m is grim out there. stay in and watch
7:49 am
the tv. we'll be back with the headlines at 8am. time now for newswatch. hello and welcome to newswatch with me, samira ahmed. as storms hit the united kingdom, is it necessary or responsible for reporters and camera crews to be out in their midst facing the elements? phillip schofield tells the world he's gay. should that be headline news? and does bbc news get overexcited every year by the oscars, with excessive and trivial coverage? first, westminster was abuzz as the prime minister announced his cabinet reshuffle. before details emerged, political editor laura kuenssberg wa already on the trail of rishi sunak. are you expecting a promotion today? you're widely tipped as on the way up. i have absolutely no idea... rishi sunak unaware first thing in the morning just how high
7:50 am
he was about to soar. leisure to be part of the government. —— pleasure to be part of the government. emerging as the brand—new chancellor, but has number 11 become an annex of the prime minister? number 10a? chancellor? will you have any power if number 10's in charge, chancellor? maggie robinson was among a number of viewers taking exception to that report. she e—mailed: chris tetley made a similar point: and the eyes of the bbc were still of the new chancellor on friday morning, even in the middle of a report about mumps on the news channel.
7:51 am
around half of mumps cases last year were amongst unvaccinated people accoridng to public health england. but many, like flora, ben and ollie, did have the mmrjab and... studio: there goes rishi sunak, the new chancellor of the exchequer, alongside stephen barclay into number 10, for his first cabinet meeting as chancellor. now we go back to mumps for a moment. apologies for breaking into tim muffet's report. chris mitchell wondered: the annual display of celebrity glit and glamour that is the oscars always features prominently on bbc breakfast, as the ceremony takes place in los angeles
7:52 am
overnight our time. this year was no exception. plenty of clips of acceptance speeches, studio interviews and discussions, analysis of some of the dresses on display and live output from reporters on the red carpet. sophie long explained how that works. kim kardashian and kanye have just made their way out. what happens, the stars come in these doors here, they walk along, most of them don't speak to us. haven't quite found out what the deal is yet. then they go out to have their photographs taken. you can hear all the paparazzi shouting at them. you can see all the press lined up. basically they all come past. reese witherspoon has already gone past, robert de niro, we're hoping, of course, to see the oscar winners. later sophie long and her colleague colin paterson did find some award winners.
7:53 am
although coverage across the breakfast and the bbc is undoubtedly popular for some viewers, others find it trivial and excessive. that view is articulated in a telephone message here from rupert ballantine. yes, the oscars only take place once a year, and all the luvvies go into overdrive, but the bbc breakfast presenters were also in overdrive. and supplemented by a supercharged. storm ciara received plenty of coverage across the weekend. bbc teams dispatched across the uk to report on the damage and disruption it was causing. here's an example from sun day's brea kfast. people are being told to avoid unnecessary travel. ina in a moment we will speak to thomas morgan in aberystwyth. luxmy gopal is in dover. luxmy, good morning to you. it seems maybe slightly less windy than it was earlier, but hard to tell. it's certainly blustery, isn't it?
7:54 am
distorted noises it might seem that way, a strong gust can take you by surprise. a little while ago our camera got knocked over. i don't know if you can hear over the sounds of these strong winds, but to the right of me... i'm so sorry, it is so noisy, so blustery, we can't quite hear you. a few minutes later we saw that even when reporting on subjects other than the storm, it still made its impact felt. here's sarah gervin providing an update from dublin on the general election in ireland. so whatever way the numbers stack up, later on today and into tomorrow, it could be weeks or even months of intense political negotiations ahead. sarah, go inside and get a nice cup of tea and thaw out! including jo cottingham:
7:55 am
allison gibson recorded her thoughts on camera. i'm sure your reporters are in a safe place when being filmed, however they do appear to be rather too close to danger and often apologise for the difficulty we may have hearing them above the atrocious conditions. when later one hears an appeal to members of the public to stay away, one can't help but feel the bbc isn't setting a good example. show us footage of dramatic scenes, yes. but play the report over the top with yourjournalists well out of harm's way.
7:56 am
well, we put those points to bbc news and they told us: do let us know your thoughts on any of the subjects we cover or on any aspect of bbc news. i'll be giving you details on how to contact us on the end of the programme. last friday, the television
7:57 am
presenter phillip schofield revealed on social media that he is gay, following that up with an interview with his co—presenter holly willoghby on this morning. it was greeted with widespread messages of support for schofield, who has two daughters with his wife of 27 years and was covered widely across the media. here's the bbc‘s lgbt correspondent ben hun reporting on friday's news at 6. some people are questioning why this matters. well, this is an important moment for lgbt people, for someone as famous as phillip schofield to come out and immediately receive such support. it shows the amount of progress that has been made in just a few decades. however, not everyone's coming out experience will be as positive. not everyone was impressed by the extent or the tone of the coverage. steve barlow said: chris robinson agreed:
7:58 am
and mrjayy and mrjay y lee had this to markjustin ford found out the news on his phone, and had this response. i was disappointed by the use of the bbc breaking news alert service to state phillip schofield has come out as gay. i feel it is inappropriate in 2020 we are using sexuality as a breaking news story, and, as such, a misuse of the bbc news text service for which i feel should only
7:59 am
be used for emergency or breaking news stories. finally, one or two viewers have noticed a habit of some news presenters, on display from huw edwards here this week on the news at 10. 0ur chief political correspondent, vicki young, is outside number 10 for us tonight. and vicki, what are you expecting then? after that decisive election victory there's a lot of talk of a valentine's day massacre, but i'm told the reshuffle will be a lot more modest than that. vicki, thanks very much. vicki young there. let's go live to geneva to our global health correspondent tulip mazumdar at the world health 0rganization headquarters. what have they been saying today, tulip? around 400 of the world's top scientists have been gathering. tulip, many thanks again there, tulip. peter briggs e—mailed us with this objection:
8:00 am
thank you for all your comments. if you want to share your opinions about what you see or hear on bbc news, including its social media and online output, you can contact us. you could even appear on the programme. and do have a look at our website:
8:01 am
where you can see previous interviews and discussions recorded. that's all from us, we'll be back with our thoughts about bbc news coverage next week. goodbye. good morning welcome to breakfast withjon kay and tina daheley. 0ur headlines today... britain braces itself for storm dennis, with warnings that it could inflict more damage and destruction than last weekend's storm ciara. travel disruption is also expected, with hundreds of flights cancelled and delays on the railways. we'll keep you updated throughout the morning. there are amber warnings in force from the met office, up to a month's with of rain falling on saturated ground in some parts of the uk. flooding is very likely on top of that. some very strong and gusty winds. a huge blow for manchester city. they're banned from european competition for two seasons, after breaching financial rules. they say they will appeal. pregnancy, parenthood and precious
8:02 am
times with her own "amazing granny". the duchess of cambridge chats about her experiences for a new podcast. it's saturday the 15th february. our top story. britain is bracing itself for a second weekend of devastating weather, with warnings that storm dennis could inflict more damage than last week's storm ciara. a major incident has already been declared in west yorkshire where the armed forces have been deployed as the environment agency says hundreds of homes are at risk of flooding. tens of thousands of air passengers are also facing major disruption, after their flights were cancelled overnight, bringing chaos to half term holiday plans. jon donnison reports. after last weekend's pummelling from storm ciara,
8:03 am
britain is now bracing for storm dennis. in hebden bridge, in west yorkshire — so often the victim of flooding — people are once again preparing for the worst. the anxiety levels are a little high. but we've left the flood defences on the back door, we'll put them on the front door tonight. and then we willjust wait and see and see what happens, really. slowly move any valuables and things upstairs. just down the road in mytholmroyd, they are trying to shore up the only part—built flood defences. it's terrifying, the impact on the community is massive. we've lost all the shops, all the businesses, just over your shoulder there is barbers, hairdressers, sainsbury's, all these places were ruined, they've been ruined for months. it's going to happen again and again. many rivers, this is the river 0use in york, already at the limit and with some places expecting a month's worth of rain over the next 48 told us, they're unlikely to hold.
8:04 am
if we see some of the repeat totals we saw last weekend in some of our more sensitive catchments, we could see further flooding but it's very uncertain at the moment and we continue to monitor that situation. last weekend's storm meant a miserable time for many people travelling. this was euston station in london after dozens of trains were cancelled. storm dennis is likely to bring the same. jon donnison who is at gatwick airport for us this morning. there have been lots of cancellations as a precaution. how many are we talking about? here at gatwick we know that easyjet have cancelled 96 flights in and out today. the winds beginning to pick up today. the winds beginning to pick up yourandi today. the winds beginning to pick up your and i think it will get worse later in the day. looking at the departure board, it looks like
8:05 am
this morning if you are flying with easyj et you this morning if you are flying with easyjet you will be ok but it's later this afternoon and this evening where we have got most of the cancellations. it is notjust gatwick but across the country. easyj et has gatwick but across the country. easyjet has cancelled more than 230 flights in and out of the uk. luton, sta nsted, flights in and out of the uk. luton, stansted, bristol flights in and out of the uk. luton, sta nsted, bristol and then flights in and out of the uk. luton, stansted, bristol and then we have british airways saying they are cancelling flights, mostly out of heathrow. what they are trying to do is merge flights but they say around 50 flights will probably be cancelled. both airlines are saying that passengers can book free of charge to travel later in the week but of course because it is the school holidays, most people are not that flexible and they will probably lose that chance for winter break. bad timing. as the idea that this tries to prevent extra problems in the next 24 hours as the weather gets worse? i think that is probably
8:06 am
right. the weather will probably pique later this evening but then it is not going to clear up until early next week so tomorrow will be pretty bad too and we might have knock—on effects rolling onto next week and asi effects rolling onto next week and as i say, some people might be trying to read book so it might be difficult all week. it is windy now but unlike last week it is not so much the wind it is the rain. it is dry at the moment but we are expecting very heavy showers later this afternoon. thank you for now. 0ur reporter leanne brown is in, mytholmroyd the calder valley, where residents are still counting the cost of last weeks bad weather. how are the preparing a week on? people still feeling the effects of storm ciara last week. we are surrounded by skips here because
8:07 am
hundreds of homes and businesses have been flooded when the roads literally turned into rivers. this has happened before in 2015. since then, millions has been put into flood defence but here is the thing. those flood defences are not finished. we are told the army is being brought into help. josh is with me he is a councillor, what is happening this morning? we are getting ready. we have been building some temporary flood barriers, we have got flood volunteers, as you say we have got the army ready to assist with preparedness but also response when it comes. lisa, your business has an flooded out. how are you feeling? terrified, we have cleared as much as we can and we are waiting to see what happens.
8:08 am
cleared as much as we can and we are waiting to see what happensfi cleared as much as we can and we are waiting to see what happens. it is a very anxious time at the moment while we're waiting for storm to hit. thank you very much indeed, we will keep you updated throughout the morning. and we will have the weather coming up in a couple of minutes. premier league champions manchester city have been banned from competing in the champions league for two years, and fined £25 million. the sport's european governing body, uefa, found that the club had committed "serious breaches" of its regulations. city said they were "disappointed but not surprised" by what it called the "prejudicial" decision, and said they will appeal. john's here with more. talk is through this. it is quite technical and complicated but massive implications. huge implications. notably the ban from the champions league from the next two seasons which is competition they have been desperate to win since pep guardiola came in. it is related to fair play rules which
8:09 am
u efa related to fair play rules which uefa brought in a number of years ago to make sure clubs are living within their means. what manchester city are accused of is inflating a sponsorship deal to make it look as if they are bringing in more money than they actually are to circumnavigate those rules. they have said they will appeal less, they are taking it to the court of arbitration for sport, the highest court which deals with issues related to sporting situations such as these and they believe they have as these and they believe they have a strong case and have set themselves they are not surprised by themselves they are not surprised by the ruling as you say, but the case has been initiated by uefa, prosecuted by them and judged by u efa prosecuted by them and judged by uefa so the court of arbitration for sport will bring a more independent review and approach but as you can imagine, far—reaching implications for the club this morning potentially. not least their manager pep guardiola, into his last year of his contract. well he want to stay next ufa are not competing on the biggest stage such as the champions league. the premier league title being the only one they can compete
8:10 am
for, well that interest in? the big players in star names, well they wa nt to players in star names, well they want to stay if they are not competing on the bigger stage on the champions league and well players wa nt to champions league and well players want tojoin champions league and well players want to join the club if they know they will not be playing on the champions league? the bigger picture, is the governing body trying to set an example with a club as big as manchester city. exactly and it is not the first time we had issues the financial fair play issues. we have faced a fixed fine in the past. this is essentially uefa's way of trying to level the playing field. some will say it is their way of preserving the status quo and protecting their tournament so established clubs stay in that and other clubs can speculate by spending lots of money to try and join the elite but it is hugely significant and i think for manchester city, the impact will not be felt with the band but i think it will be seen potentially on the pitch, not only with their manager but the players as well. and there is nothing fans can do, is there?
8:11 am
they have to sit and wait for the appeal and arbitration. exactly and these things drag on. if it is not settled by next season, perhaps manchester city will still be able to play in the champions league next season but we wait and see what happens. they are back in premier league action in the next coming days, players coming back from winter breaks. uncertainty and pressure to try and deliver that trophy this season. thank you very much. health officials in china say another 143 people have died from coronavirus, most of them in hubei province, where the outbreak originated. it brings the total number of deaths caused by the infection in china to more than 1500. more than 66,000 chinese people are now believed to have the virus. let's get the very latest on his from our correspondent nick beake, who's watching the situation from hong kong. every date seems to increase
8:12 am
further. no sign of this stabilising or peaking yet? you are right and i think what is willie difficult is that we can't say with any confidence where this is going. that is because we are entirely reliant on the facts and figures of the chinese authority given to us on a daily basis and we know especially in the early days, many people were accusing the beijing authorities may be not been completely honest about the truth and extent of this outbreak. what is for sure is that in beijing in the last 12 hours they have sent out this new order and it is pretty drastic. they are saying that anyone coming back to beijing from other parts of china need to put themselves away for two weeks so we have a completely self isolate as they call it. lots of confusion because we don't know whether this applies tojust because we don't know whether this applies to just chinese citizens or foreigners and so maybe someone flying on a holiday into beijing or someone already in the country but it goes to show what the chinese authorities are trying to do to stop this outbreak being any worse than
8:13 am
it already is. thank you. labour's emily thornberry is out of the party's leadership race, after falling short of enough backers to move through to the final stage of the contest. despite a desperate last minute scramble ahead of the midnight deadline, the shadow foreign secretary failed to win enough support to make it through to the final ballot. frontbenchers sir keir starmer and rebecca long—bailey, along with backbench mp lisa nandy, had already made it to the next round. police are investigating a video published on social media which appears to show another car being driven on the wrong side of the road outside an raf base used by the american military. the video shows the car driving into incoming traffic, before swerving back into the left hand lane. it's the latest of several reports of cars driving on the wrong side of the road near raf croughton in northamptonshirewhere, where19—year—old harry dunn died last year. the duchess of cambridge has said her parenting inspiration
8:14 am
is her "amazing granny" who involved her in arts and crafts, gardening and cooking as a child. in her first podcast interview, she said she wants to make sure she gives similar experiences to prince george, princess charlotte and prince louis. catherine was speaking after launching a major survey on childhood last month, as our royal correspondent sarah campbell reports. do they like brussels sprouts, too? i never knew that. the last few weeks have seen the duchess of cambridge interact with children, their parents and carers, across the uk. from a children's centre in cardiff... a women's prison in surrey... a farm in belfast... and a cafe in aberdeen. hello, everybody. catherine, who spent eight years exploring issues around young children and their development, wants to spark a national conversation about the importance of the early years. but it's rare for her to speak about her own views.
8:15 am
at this nursery in south london, she wasjoined by the host of the happy mum, happy ba by podcast. on its latest edition, catherine talks about her childhood and the experiences she hopes to pass on to her own three children. i had an amazing granny, who devoted a lot of time for playing with us. doing arts and craft and going to her greenhouse to do gardening stuff and cooking with us. i try and incorporate a lot of the experiences that she gave us at the time into the experiences that i give my children now. catherine also talked about her passion for the outdoors where she spent much of her time as a child. that passion was clear from the child—centred garden she helped to design at last year's chelsea flower show. a garden which was enjoyed by her own three children. there's no doubt how serious the coronavirus outbreak is, but the world health organization said there's also what it called an "infodemic" of fake news
8:16 am
about the virus online. that's leading to some chinese businesses here in the uk reporting a fall in custom, while other british chinese people have reported being the target of racist abuse. we'll talk to two businessmen in just a minute, but first these schoolchildren from manchester told us about their experiences. a lot of people in my school keep calling me the coronavirus spreader even though i don't even have it. they call me the coronavirus spreader because i am chinese. they called me contagious ones. it made me feel really upset. i think the economy contagious because i am chinese and they think i have been to china quite a lot. people have in talking about the coronavirus and when i go to school i am just really stressed out because everybody is coming up to me and giving me lots of questions and it is hard to
8:17 am
answer. my message to the children in china is that there will be up here and when there is a cure, their life will be much better. my message for the children in china is to not panic. stay calm and don't worry. let's speak now to gerry and warren yeung, who are brothers who both own chinese restaurants in manchester. thank you for coming in. what is your personal experience have your business is been affected? business has definitely been affected but the personal experience comes from anything from innocence to unpleasantness anything from innocence to unpleasa ntness to abuse. anything from innocence to unpleasantness to abuse. so for example you could get kids coming up toa example you could get kids coming up to a manager saying are you from china, have you got the virus? to customers, chinese friends of, going to theatres anderson as they sat down, the person sitting next to them turning their back for the
8:18 am
whole show, saying go home, in fact yesterday, manager reported somebody came up to him, a group of young children said what meat do you serve and hear, and she said chicken, pork. they said do you have any snakes and dogs? that sort of... i think the whole kent thing comes from the factor are a lot of misinformation in social media, the mainstream media has it on headlines every five minutes, radio, television, so it created a sort of irrational hysteria, irrational as sino phobia. how does that make you feel? for you and your staff? don't think it is anger or upset but i don't think it is the fact that we need to send a message out there to see how we as a chinese community
8:19 am
actually is dealing with it as a whole. as well as the fact that i think we need to lobby the media, lock politicians to send the right message out there. what concerns me is there are racial undertones here because when swine flu for example originated in america, you would not call it american flu or avoid american people or american restau ra nts. american people or american restaurants. i think that is why who are calling it covert 19, a neutral name. 0ne track how have you've seen is this affected? the whole chinatown business has severely affected. they may have to close and let their staff on unpaid leave and just pay rent. we are
8:20 am
seeing some pictures of chinatown in manchester, usually a thriving and bustling part of the city and lots of other chinese communities across the uk. can you put a number on it in terms of visitor numbers, dining table cover numbers? it must be over 50% if not more. sales have been dropped by 50% or more. 50% if not more. sales have been dropped by 50% or morem 50% if not more. sales have been dropped by 50% or more. if people cancelled the table, what do they say about why they are doing it? because let's be clear, there is absolutely no suggestion that there is anything to do with coronavirus with your staff, is or any restau ra nts with your staff, is or any restaurants so why would the not wa nt to restaurants so why would the not want to go? may simply do not turn up. this is what i mean by the irrational fear up. this is what i mean by the irrationalfear and phobia. up. this is what i mean by the irrational fear and phobia.|j up. this is what i mean by the irrationalfear and phobia. i would be interested to know, you talked about it affecting business and your restau ra nt about it affecting business and your restaurant but whatever your personal experiences name like and your friends and family? people of chinese heritage in the uk?|j
8:21 am
your friends and family? people of chinese heritage in the uk? i work long hours in my restaurant so i don't actually go out that often, but i have no personal experience as such but by daughter who works in london told they when she was travelling home on the tube, someone sat next to her imitating coughing at herand sat next to her imitating coughing at her and sort of saying why don't you cough. that kind of thing. making her really agitated and angry at that. i was at a chinese resident on monday and i know this is reality because somebody said to me are you sure you're going to eat at a chinese restaurant? which is com pletely chinese restaurant? which is completely irrational if you are talking about fear of being around chinese people or chinese food and i know there has been misinformation, the video circulating on facebook, snake videos, what message would you like to give to people who are watching? the first thing is that we need to put this in perspective. in
8:22 am
the sense that i don't want to understate the seriousness of the disease and the illness but at the same time if you look at flu for example, i read some statistics in america that 19 billion people in this cold season could con contract flu -- this cold season could con contract flu —— 19 million people. we need to put this in perspective. for example, if chinese or any people travelling from china, the would—be temperature tested before they are boarded and fme illness takes place during the plane, there are procedures to deal with it. the chinese community has invited health ca re chinese community has invited health care professionals to give lectures
8:23 am
and meetings to inform the community on what should be done. we actually, many of our colleagues would self quarantine when they came back from china. i have a couple of staff who went back to china for chinese new year. they came back, they would stairway from 14 days before they come for work. all of the self regulating self imposing rules and regulations that actually is good for everybody and i think the point i'm trying to make is that we are all part of this community in the uk. and actually, to single out the chinese community as a scapegoat is very unfairand chinese community as a scapegoat is very unfair and regrettable. thank you very much indeed for coming in and talking to us. well said and we are asking, if you're sitting at home with questions about coronavirus, if there is anything you have been mulling over or
8:24 am
confusing your frightening you, do get in touch in the usual way. we will a get in touch in the usual way. we willa gp get in touch in the usual way. we will a gp here who is an expert and can help us through it and maybe put minds at rest because she was trying to reassure people that at the moment the situation here is not as serious as it is elsewhere. and giving sensible advice. that is all to come. another big story, storm dennis. here's ben with a look at this morning's weather. thank you and good morning. last weekend we had storm ciara, this weekend, storm dennis is sweeping in from the west. another dose of very strong wind but also rain could be the bigger concern so there is a member warning for the risk of flooding. some spots this weekend could see a whole month's worth of rain. this is a satellite image, you can see this pipeline of cloud, notice a developing this curl. this isa sign
8:25 am
notice a developing this curl. this is a sign of an area of low pressure which has been deepening extremely rapidly and intense, it will spin with us throughout the weekend, various pulses of rain, particularly across parts of england and wales and those strong winds will continue throughout the weekend. the length of time for which we will have strong wind, poses cause for concern. but of dry weather around in eastern areas of the moment but rain already sweeping in from the west, that will push east through the day, some very heavy indeed. the wind will be strengthening as well, something a bit brighter perhaps later in the day for the far west of scotla nd later in the day for the far west of scotland and parts of northern ireland but still some showers. these gusts here will be quite widespread, 40—60 mph but some coasts in the west could get to 70 or stronger so they con could cause a little bit of damage. mild temperature today, through to night, rain continues to track, you can see line of lime green colours, that indicates a line of really
8:26 am
torrential downpours with squally winds, that could cause a little damage. parts of scotland and northern ireland different knight, some clear spells but wintry showers, chilly night and exceptionally, many places. tomorrow with rain, that will drag its heels, clearing through the afternoon finally. behind that, brighter day with something much hours. some of which will be heavy and over the high ground. not as windy as it has been today and it will start to turn colder from the been today and it will start to turn colderfrom the north. temperatures through the middle of the afternoon. as we go through sunday night and the area of low pressure, storm dennis tracks to the north of the uk, notice all these white lines quashing together, that means we will see some very windy weather. another dose of gusts across parts of scotland. the wind this weekend, also the rain, met office amber
8:27 am
warning particularly for some high ground for the potential for a warning particularly for some high ground for the potentialfor a month worth of rain which could cause some significant flooding. it could be disruptive and dangerous out there. thank you very much indeed. the lawyer georgena clarke is here to tell us what's caught her eye. you're watching breakfast from bbc news, it's time now we were going to end with this book that start with storm dennis. everyone has been getting reports about this when speed and he has been getting messages on social media saying i had enough, stay
8:28 am
away. some people saying i don't wa nt to away. some people saying i don't want to be rolling down the hill like sonic the hedgehog. all his family members laughed when the storm was called after him. he is based in yorkshire and whitby but it is all light—hearted messages. nothing, no one saying anything to cause him any offence but it has been avalanche with lots of messages on social media. and i think his view is he's probably going to get a bit more when the storm hits. you have a fun weekend. your trap. the fa ct have a fun weekend. your trap. the fact he is in yorkshire where it will be most affected. if you are watching this morning, we will move on to watching this morning, we will move ontoe watching this morning, we will move on to e next. this is a good one. isn't that everyone's absolute nightmare when you're pregnant, trying to get the hospital and then
8:29 am
think my gosh i will give birth any time right now. that would be an absolute nightmare for me, i had when is but they were stuck in roadworks driving 50 mph, realise they would not make it, call the emergency services, and luckily, they told them to pull over and on they told them to pull over and on the inside lane and that is when they gave birth. dad was literally when you read in the transcript of the emergency services call, he said the emergency services call, he said the baby is about to pop. it is coming. the baby is here and it is literally as quick as that. luckily, the emergency services told them to pull over on the inside lane. they arrived within a minute of the daily‘s delivery. and they were all 0k. daily‘s delivery. and they were all ok. i thought it was interesting because a lorry driver must see what was happening, pulled over in the inside lane and put his hazard on to maintain privacy. the dad who is a tree surgeon says delivering my son ona tree surgeon says delivering my son on a motorway is public the best thing i have done on my life.
8:30 am
a p pa re ntly thing i have done on my life. apparently the sun is a chip off the old block. if you are trying to decide whether to have a cup of tea or coffee this morning, apparently cocoa . or coffee this morning, apparently cocoa. apparently it helps your heart. this particular one talks about the fact that it improves blood flow to your cabs and improves muscle function so i think the story was there to help people with peripheral artery disease because they have decreased blood flow to their legs so if you're going to run a marathon, or do any long walks, drinking cocoa three times a day a p pa re ntly drinking cocoa three times a day apparently will help you. but i don't think... i would be asleep if i had some this morning. i associated with a night—time drink. went to and it will coco drinkers were able to walk further than they were fa just... i
8:31 am
guess the key thing is we're not talking about hot chocolate, probably more expensive cocoa. talking about hot chocolate, probably more expensive cocoam says everyday coco. apparently if you drink it it will help you walk that little bit further. i don't know if it is good for the waistline. and that is where we will leave it 20 i was going to have another coffee, i was going to ask if he wanted one. stay with us, the headlines are coming up.
8:32 am
hello, this is breakfast withjon kay and tina daheley. coming up before nine ben will have all the weekend's weather for you. but first, a summary of this morning's main news. britain is bracing itself for a second weekend of devastating weather, with warnings that storm dennis could inflict more damage than last week's storm ciara. a major incident has already been declared in west yorkshire where the armed forces have been deployed as the environment agency says hundreds of homes are at risk of flooding. tens of thousands of air passengers are also facing major disruption, after their flights were cancelled overnight — bringing chaos to half term holiday plans.
8:33 am
health officials in china say another 143 people have died from coronavirus, most of them in hubei province, where the outbreak originated. it brings the total number of deaths caused by the infection more than 66,000 chinese people are now believed to have the virus. labour's emily thornberry is out of the party's leadership race, after falling short of enough backers to move through to the final stage of the contest. despite a desperate last minute scramble ahead of the midnight deadline, the shadow foreign secretary failed to win enough support to make it through to the final ballot. frontbenchers sir keir starmer and rebecca long—bailey, along with backbench mp lisa nandy, had already made it to the next round. police are investigating a video published on social media which appears to show another car being driven on the wrong side of the road outside an raf base used by the american military. the video shows the car driving into incoming traffic, before swerving back into the left hand lane. it's the latest of several reports of cars driving on the wrong side
8:34 am
of the road near raf croughton in northamptonshirewhere, from today, companies which provide phone, broadband and pay—tv services will have to alert customers when their contracts are coming to an end. the media regulator, 0fcom, says about 20 million people are currently out of contract — with many likely to be paying higher prices than they need to. those are the main stories this morning. john is here with the sport because we have a huge football story. it broke last night. manchester city punished by uefa for "serious breaches" of its rules, they'll be banned from champions league for two seasons
8:35 am
and fined £25 million. will their best players stay? what plays will they be able to bring in? bands and season tickets and that sort of thing if you aren't going to see those... it will be the fans that suffer. we know an appeal will, from manchester city to the court of arbitration for sport. depending on what comes from that, it could be a lifting or some sort of change to that ban. that ban has been manchester city published for inflating the value of its sponsorships to make it seem they're earning more money than they are. earlier the football finance expert dr rob wilson joined us on breakfast and outlined the impact the ruling could have. manchester city might have expected what was coming, i don't think they ever really expected a two—year ban.
8:36 am
put the fine to one side for a moment because that is a bit of change them, really. but if you look at how this is going to have indications for other teams across european football, their player recruitment strategy, not to mention whether managers will stay on, have a team that doesn't play champions league football for example, it will make it very difficult and murky waters for them to wade through. and it all relates to them breaking uefa's financial fair play rules, brought in a few years ago to make sure clubs were living within their means. inflated a sponsorship deal to make it look like money that is coming in is coming in legitimately when it is actually coming in from the club's owners. what they've done is to simplify this they have said they have got a big sponsorship deal with etihad airways that sponsor the shirt and that type of thing, and instead of doing a transaction between manchester city, organisation a and etihad, organisation b, the money
8:37 am
is actually coming from organisation d, e or f, actually probably from the owner of the football club. that is what financial fair play was brought in to stop. limiting your owner investment, make sure you can wash your face financially based on your own income and the income you can generate and not depend on those owner investments. football focus on today. and well, some teams back in action this weekend with a staggered winter break. what's coming up? six games this weekend so everybody gets some time. that is huge story! it is something we will discuss at length on the programme. we also have bbc sports correspond and to talk about it. you touched on some of the key issues. the future of pep aureole is a huge one for manchester city because when he has been asked about it, he hasn't been as clear as you might expect and to be or hoping to be if you are a manchester city fan about committing your future to
8:38 am
the club. and the potential of them not being in the champion league for two years. that makes it slightly murky as to where he might be. the clu b murky as to where he might be. the club will obviously appeal and they feel they have a strong case. but the other thing you touched on is that that ability to attract the buyers of the calibre they want if there is a potential of not buying in the champions league. that it has a huge impact on one of the biggest clu bs a huge impact on one of the biggest clubs in europe at the moment. it is a fascinating story and will be interesting to see how it plays out and manchester city are certain that they are going to be ok. but it is certainly something, and uefa will certainly something, and uefa will certainly feel they have a precedent here. clubs can't get around these rules. and that will be a strong test case. i'm sure we will be talking about it overnight. they feel that if they go to an independent body and say, listen, this is what we did, these are the rules and this is too harsh, they feel they will be all right. uefa
8:39 am
will not have put this out there had they not felt they had a strong case against manchester city as well. that will be a big talking point. we have jose mourinho on that will be a big talking point. we havejose mourinho on the programme as well, with his fancy new haircut. he got held up in the bad weather in germany this week. yet a big game this weekend in the premier league against aston villa. steve is talking about that and his new haircut. what is the reason behind the haircut? it was front—page news. the reason behind the haircut is that the barber is bad and he did a bad job. when i looked at myself in the mirror i told him, come on, bring the one and shave it. because now i know that it will come, it will take a little longer but it will come back to normality. he has been banned from the
8:40 am
champions league for two years without haircut! falling asleep in the barbers. he has said it is terrible because of his barber. the barber is appealing! be baba has a very strong barber is appealing! be baba has a very strong case “— barber is appealing! be baba has a very strong case —— the barber has a very strong case —— the barber has a very strong case —— the barber has a very strong case. very strong case —— the barber has a very strong case. it will be an interesting week in the football league as well. lots of stories. we have leon osman and alex scott. 0nly half—an—hour today. we are packing a lot in. we are small but we are perfectly formed. we also have the best bits from wolves against leicester in the premier league. see you at midday. you will be talking about va are again. to matters on the pitch,
8:41 am
more var controversy in the premier league last night, with wolves playing leicester. wolves thought they'd narrowed the gap on the top four with this goal from wily boly on the stroke of half time only for it to be ruled offside. not that it's easy to spot. pedro neto on the far side was ruled against. something has to be done, and let the people that understand make something, to again the game have this joy of celebrating. because we are in danger of becoming robots, and football is not about that. he is frustrated. you may remember on wednesday, england's cricketers lost the opening t20 match against south africa by one run. this time they came out on top in another great match to level the series. moeen ali was in great form with the bat, as england
8:42 am
set their hosts a target of 205. and south africa nearly chased it down, but needing three runs from the final ball to win, dwaine pretorious gave tom curran a straight forward catch, as england won it by two runs. we wonder what will be dished up in the decider in centurion on sunday. with no six nations this weekend, scotland captain stuart hogg was back in club action for premiership leaders exeter chiefs. and scored his side's second try, as they beat gloucester 26—15. it's the chiefs fifth win in six league games. there was high scoring in the pro 14, with a huge win for munster — they beat southern kings by 68 points to 3, to move to the top of conference b. and fijian hooker mesu dolokoto scored two tries on his debut for glasgow warriors, in their resounding bonus—point win against zebre — 56—24 the score there. controversial australian isreal folau is set to make his super league debut today with catalans dragons — they're at home to castleford.
8:43 am
last night, leeds rhinos scored nine tries to thrash hull kr by 52—10. and aidan sezer kicked a late penalty to make it two wins out of two for huddersfield — their best start to a super league season for six years. they beat salford red devis12—10. last night's action for you and plenty of talk today about manchester city and how that ban potentially will affect them. we will keep across that over the coming days and the appeal and we await the decision on that. and chester city back in action against west ham in the premier league and then the champions league to follow then the champions league to follow the week after and pep aureole that will be facing the press and will have some difficult questions. —— manchester city against west ham. and dancers they will be successful in their appeal. —— dan says they
8:44 am
will be successful in their appeal. the rnli is warning the arrival of storm dennis poses a ‘severe safety risk‘ to those visiting the british coastline this weekend, with people continuing to put themselves in danger. it comes after six volunteer lifeboat crew almost capsized trying to reach a surfer during storm ciara last weekend. our correspondent fiona lamdin is at the rnli's headquarters in poole. what can you tell us? what precautions are being taken and what is there advice? let me just first show you how sheltered we are here. we are in the lifeboat station. some swa ns still we are in the lifeboat station. some swans still enjoying the calm. just out there on the bay it is still calm. the flags are flying a little bit more wind in the air. but actually out on the english channel things will certainly pick up. let's
8:45 am
meet ed davis who is on standby this weekend. he is now wearing his dry suit, since you last spoke to us, because you are one of 30 members on standby, because what will you be doing this weekend if not called out? we will be out on training. we will be practising to learn how to drive the boat in rough weather. we saw pictures of last weekend in hastings, really rough, do these boats ever ca psize? hastings, really rough, do these boats ever capsize? it is very unusual for these two capsize and we do have things on board to recover from that if needed. show me how you would steer the boat differently in really rough weather. if we were out in really rough weather, we can fill the front end of the boat with water, we have a ballast tank where you are and that will help to keep the front end of the boat down and stop it tipping over backwards. show
8:46 am
me what else. if we had to the back of the boat. if the worst happen and we capsized, we have a capsize bag at the back here and the crew can manually inflate this. it will fill up manually inflate this. it will fill up with c02 and it will bring the boat back upright. do get scared? watch at home and receive out there doing these rescues, what is it like actually driving the boat in these conditions? it is scary. it is dangerous out there. the conditions, especially when we have a storm like this, are pretty threatening. but it is ratio genome we have a piece of kit that is designed to cope with that. —— kit that is designed to cope with that. -- it kit that is designed to cope with that. —— it is reassuring to know. we have had lots of photos of people taking selfies of themselves with huge waves behind them. but actually, you want people to stay away. the we can understand people wa nt away. the we can understand people want exciting photos for instagram,
8:47 am
but it isn't worth the risk this weekend. the best idea would be to stay out of the water and say away from the coast. having won weekend with friends and family. if you come down and find yourself in the water unexpectedly, it is cold out there so try and relax and float in the water. don't —— the best thing to do is to call 909 and as for the coast guard if you see somebody in danger and then they can ask a volunteer and then they can ask a volunteer and we can try and rescue. this is ed's 30 people like ed will be on standby in case people get onto difficulty across the country. that is 5000 people. the advice is to please their way from the water so we don't put these people in risk. let's see what storm dennis is doing, ben can tell is with the weather. the wind is already
8:48 am
starting to pick up. the weather watchers have taken photos. don't get too close if you are out taking photos today. this one from cornwall sta rts photos today. this one from cornwall starts to give you an idea that the wind is picking up. we have had gusts of up to 60 miles an hour for some coasts. wind is part of the story. rain could well be the bigger pa rt story. rain could well be the bigger part of the story. the met office amber warning for part of the story. the met office amberwarning for rain part of the story. the met office amber warning for rain and the risk of flooding with more than a month's worth of rain in some parts of the uk. this pipeline of cloud, notice the curl that has been developing. this is a sign of low pressure that has deepened very rapidly. that alone will be with us all weekend. it is storm dennis and it will bring the strong winds and heavy rain. here is the radarfrom early on. some heavy rain now starting to push into the picture. through today for most of us it is reallyjust the story of things getting wetter and wetter and windy as well. the one exception to that wetter and wetter theme is up to the north—west. 0ut
8:49 am
of scotla nd theme is up to the north—west. 0ut of scotland and northern ireland we may just start to see something brighter developing later in the day. 0therwise brighter developing later in the day. otherwise that heavy and persistent rain is the story. some of the coastal areas could see gusts of the coastal areas could see gusts of up to 70 miles are more. the winds are damaging but the wind and rain won't make it easy today. you can say line of bright green here and that indicates the potential for and that indicates the potential for a narrow band of really torrential downpours and very squally winds. that could cause some damage. in northern ireland and scotland as it is slightly different night and some clear spells. very mild down towards the south and england and wales starting off tomorrow with more heavy rain. that will take a while to clear away from the south—east. a risk of flooding in southern counties. further north and west it turns into a brighter day with
8:50 am
sunshine. also some showers. some heavy and some wintry over high ground. it is a wintry day and those other wind gusts to expect. quite perhaps not as windy as today. tomorrow won't be as windy as today, but through the evening as low pressure m oves but through the evening as low pressure moves to the north of the uk, notice the white lines squashing together here across scotland. wherever you see that it shows that we are going to see some strong winds of real slave of sunday night across parts of scotland —— mike a real swathe of rain. there is a potential for flooding and disruption and some dangerous conditions of there. i will keep you updated throughout the rest of the programme. thousands of bereaved children are missing out on money from the government
8:51 am
because their parents are not married when one of them dies. the high court has ruled that the loophole around these "government support payments" breaches the human rights of minors, who have no choice whether or not their parents are married. the department of work and pensions says it will appeal the verdict. paul lewis from radio 4's money box can tell us more. paul, on the face of it, this sounds unfair. can you tell us what these payments are and who is entitled to an? they are not very well-known, but if somebody under pension age who is married or in a civil partnership dies, their spouse or civil partner gets a payment from the government. if they have children, the payment is a lot more. it is about £250 a month more or £1000 in a lump—sum more than if they don't have children. the high court said that these payments are clearly for the children. because
8:52 am
you don't get them if you are not married, that is this dating against those children, breaching their human rights. because the children of unmarried couples don't get this extra payment given to their remaining parent. that can help them immensely in those 18 months after the bereavement. and is it that decision that is being appealed? the department for work and pensions is ina department for work and pensions is in a strange position. it only decided yesterday, friday, to appeal or seek leave to appeal as it has to, but on wednesday, the prime minister intervened in this by saying this is an injustice and we will do all we can to remedy it. meanwhile, the department was thinking, we better appeal this, have already lost a similar decision in the supreme court a couple of yea rs in the supreme court a couple of years ago which they have never done anything about for various reasons. i think the department is in that slightly pits difficult position whether want to appeal to but the
8:53 am
prime minister said it is an injustice. the department for work and pensions wanting to appeal a decision that would allow unmarried people to receive this payment. i don't understand it. it would give more money to thousands of children, as you said, every year. there is about 2000 unmarried couples find themselves in a position where one of them dies. i spoke to a father yesterday and he said it was a terribly difficult time and had to stop work and couldn't feed his children properly, he worried he couldn't keep the lights on. this payment which would have been for him fringe and £55 a month would have been immensely helpful. if this -- it is have been immensely helpful. if this —— it is discriminatory against these children. you might say the pa rents these children. you might say the parents didn't get married and that was a choice, but the children didn't make the choice and they are getting less money for that support because of this cremation against unmarried couples. paul, thank you very much. —— because of this
8:54 am
discrimination against unmarried couples. you can find out more on that story on money box on radio 4 at midday. when rally driver chris ingram lost his sponsorship last year, it could have spelled the end of his career. instead, he went on to become the first british person to win the european rally championship in more than half a century. with the help of a crowdfunding page set up by his mum, chris raised £20,000 to be able to compete in the final three races of the year. we're going to speak to chris and his mumjo injusta minute but let's have a look at the nail—biting moment he and his co—driver ross whittock found out they were european champions. a week before the first rally this year my main sponsor pulled out of a two—year contract and, you know, that really dropped me in it and it could have ended my whole career, but i wasn't going to let it. in rallying, crashes happen. it is like a footballer
8:55 am
missing a penalty. but i can afford to let that happen because it is a £20,000 excess. i don't even earn any money. to get to these last two rallies, my mum actually set up a crowdfunding page for rally fans to chip in and be part of it and have their name on the car. over 300 people have contributed to the team. good look, pal. come on! rallying has always been my escape from normal life. going into a rally was always living the dream. commentator: he comes to the end of the stage, for england. he had a puncture! chris ingram has 142 points and his competitor 141.
8:56 am
i have always known deep down i can do whatever i want as long as i put in the work and the dedication and don't lose my passion for it. i can achieve whatever i want really. ifeel quite proud of that. so tense here watching. congratulations! chris and jo join us now. and amazing trophy. what is it like watching that buy? it fills me with proud. it is crazy to know i am living my dream being able to compete in this sport and i'm so happy to have done it. my take is back. this time last year, almost exactly, your sponsorship deal ended. you almost thought that was it. i don't come from an wealthy background and it is an expensive sport so i am believing in sponsors
8:57 am
believing in me and help me get to the top. a sponsor pulled the plug andi the top. a sponsor pulled the plug and i didn't know whether i could carry on, so it has been a stressful time. this is where mum comes in and start the crowdfunding page. why was it so important for you to do that and try and give him a hope of carrying on? i don't think it was an option for him to give up, it is all he has ever strived for and wanted since about eight years old. so he was so near yet so far. didn't have the money to carry on, so i thought about crowdfunding. there were so many people behind him, it was fantastic. if it hadn't been for the crowdfunding, that would have been it, would it? definitely. every year i have put everything towards it. 0ne whatever i have done. it would have just been the end. thanks to mum, it saved the day really. does that add extra pressure knowing you have crowd funded to support you and
8:58 am
your career? definitely but i don't know, i have never really felt pressure. it is the driving and it comes naturally to me and ijust wa nt to comes naturally to me and ijust want to win it and make all of those people proud and happy that have supported me and believed in me. people proud and happy that have supported me and believed in mem isa supported me and believed in mem is a different kind of sponsorship, not a company, but people. what kind of people pledged money? everyone. so many foreign people who had seen me drive abroad. lots of local people in manchester. everyone chipped in and made it happen and i am so grateful. i'm asking a basic question, why is it so expensive to compete? you need a car, obviously. i have a huge team in the car is expensive to run on transport around europe, hopefully the world this year. it europe, hopefully the world this yea r. it costs europe, hopefully the world this year. it costs so much. the technology is so advanced and is is becoming a very expensive 40
8:59 am
u nfortu nately. becoming a very expensive 40 unfortunately. —— expensive sport u nfortu nately. unfortunately. —— expensive sport unfortunately. it is formula 1 on steroids. you lost your sponsorship, you are sitting here now talking about is, you have done phenomenally well and have one, any word from them or any other sponsors sticking around? i'm trying to get into the world championship now which is the ambition to become the youngest ever world rally champion. it is very difficult still. i just world rally champion. it is very difficult still. ijust hope someone will be watching and believing in me and help me get to the top and on the journey. your mum will help you out! she will sort you out again. how do you realise that this is something you are good at? how did you start? my dad drove for fun. i fell in love with the sport and it was a magic experience to see the ca rs was a magic experience to see the cars through the forest and the sound of the rally cars. ifell cars through the forest and the sound of the rally cars. i fell in
9:00 am
love with the sport and desperately wa nted love with the sport and desperately wanted to get behind the wheel and he gave me the chance very early on. but quickly, we ran out of all of our money and i luckily got picked up our money and i luckily got picked up by our money and i luckily got picked up by some sponsors. it went from there. i started to win and i thought i could get to the top and can thought i could get to the top and ca n world thought i could get to the top and can world champion. you're going so fast there. i can feel your enthusiasm, budge your heart must be in your mouth when you are racing? very quick taxi driver! people ask me if i'm scared when he is behind the wheel, and most of the time, you are so well protected in the car it is not like driving a car on the roads, withjust a seat belt, but there was a time when he had a very bad crash in ireland. the car barrel rolled. when i saw the in car clip, that was scary. it looked like he
9:01 am
was in... that look scary. we are glad you came through that and came through the season, and glad you are here the trophy. good—looking season. thank you. you won't suppose to show that clip. thank you. 03:01:21,917 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 stay with us, headlines coming up.
