11:01 am
in the first of five one day internationals. and the dateline london panel focus on the iranian nuclear deal, president trump, and brexit. that's in half an hour, here on bbc news. good morning and welcome to bbc news. the new conservative party chairman brandon lewis has told the bbc the government is doing everything it can to ensure the serial sex offender, john worboys, stays injail. the parole board is recommending his release — despite spending less than ten years behind bars. it insists correct procedures were followed. speaking on the andrew marr show in the past hour, the conservative party chairman,
11:02 am
brandon lewis, said he understood how angry worboys‘ victims were. the secretary of state is looking now a getting a virus on a judicial review, if we can only advice is clear that we can go forward in a positive way then we will look to do that. every victim out there, every friend and family of victims and everybody who has read about the case will want to know that we're doing everything we can to make sure the victims are properly protected. we respect the situation, the emotions and feelings that people have been through in these tragic and awful situations. do you personally understand the outrage about this case? absolutely, and know somebody who has been through this and a victim of this. just reading about it, anybody will appreciate that this must be awful for victims. to think about somebody like that out on the street. he is right, the secretary of state day forjustice to make sure as man
11:03 am
stays behind jars. criminal appeals barrister, matt stanbury, has been telling me that such an intervention by a secretary of state would be unprecedented. the secretary of state often doesn't participate in these hearings. it is not like a court hearing where you have two parties, one on other side of the court room. the secretary of state allows the parole board to get on with itsjob making independent decisions. we do not note in this case if you chose to be represented in the searing. but it wasn't, and how in the searing. but it wasn't, and now seeks to turn around and complained that he did not go the way he said it should have gone, thatis way he said it should have gone, that is problematic in itself. there is clearly a lot of public discontent about this original pa role discontent about this original parole board decision, but also political pressure on thejustice secretary to bring about a review of the parole board decision. it has become a political case in a sense, hasn't it? it has an clearly the pa role hasn't it? it has an clearly the parole board is in a huge amount of
11:04 am
press as a result of this decision. arguably, very unfairly because we don't know its reasons. the parole board is repeatedly being criticised for not keeping the victims updated, when that is the role of the probation service not the parole board. clearly, it has become a hugely political case and hugely controversial, i cannot recall a pa role controversial, i cannot recall a parole board decision that has rumbled on as the main news story for more than a week now, ever having happened before. that reflects the massive public concerns surrounding this case. in an interview this morning, jeremy corbyn has insisted that labour is not supporting or calling for a second eu referendum. previously, mr corbyn had failed to rule out holding a second eu let's speak to our political correspondent leila nathoo. this whole question of a second eu
11:05 am
referendum, raised during the week by the former ukip leader, that he might support it. and unexpected person to raise that. we have the liberal democrats openly calling for a second referendum on the final deal agreed with brussels and there has been a lot of pressure on labour to say weather they would back a second referendum. after, given the opposition to the brexit process. jeremy corbyn was asked on itv whether labour would be sorting sparred are supporting a second referendum. we're not supporting all calling for a second referendum. what we have called for is a meaningful vote in parliament and thatis meaningful vote in parliament and that is the one area that i think parliament has asserted itself with the vote before christmas. parliament has asserted itself with the vote before christmaslj parliament has asserted itself with the vote before christmas. ijust wa nt the vote before christmas. ijust want to point out to you that when
11:06 am
you are talking very much about the present tense, saying we are not supporting a second referendum. you are not saying we would never support it. we're not calling for one either. jeremy corbyn, very much speaking in the present tense, refusing to be drawn on if that would be labour's policy in the future to call for that second referendum. there has also been debate about labour's position about staying in the single market, there isa staying in the single market, there is a constituency within the labour party depot much does want to stay in the single market, something the government has ruled out. jeremy corbyn has made it clear that he thinks the single market and eu membership are one in the same, you cannot have single market membership without eu membership. the snp leader nicola sturgeon, she wants labour to come out and give support that position. she says there is a majority in the house of commons or remaining in the single market and she is calling on labour to come out and support that physician. nicola
11:07 am
sturgeon has been talking about the impact on scotland. impact assessments on the scottish economy. she was challenged on what brexit means for her plans for a second independence referendum. based on what the prime minister has says. based on what the european commission is saying by a roundabout the autumn of this year we should have clarity about the future. between october and the end of the year you will be able to tell us if there will be a second referendum.” will look at that and the next appropriate steps to scotland and report that back. there is not enough time for a second referendum before the uk leads the eu, if we are living in march 2019 any have to ta ke are living in march 2019 any have to take a decision in the autumn of 2018 there is not enough time to make the decision, as a referendum, leave the uk and stay in the eu. will make a decision on timing and
11:08 am
look at that. we so have to make a decision and i accept that the detail is yet to emerge. we have a situation where the prime minister is saying that there will now be a implementation period, everybody else calls it a transition period, where as i understand it, and this is yet to be agreed and hopefully it will be a great singer, but that will be a great singer, but that will effectively be a steady transition. i will make judgments andl transition. i will make judgments and i have to what i believe is the best interest of scotland and protecting our best interest in all circumstances. that was nicola sturgeon. we also heard from brandon lewis, the conservative party chairman talking about how the tory party might campaign better digitally at the next election. that is right. brandon lewis has been brought into the helm of the conservative party in the recent reshuffle to recharge the party machinery and reinvigorate its whole
11:09 am
electoral machine after the campaign last year that was lacklustre. it was widely acknowledged that the tories came second to labour when it came to online campaigning. labour had a very savvy social media approach. they had lots of videos going viral and activists to eating organically, and that is something that the tories have identified that they need to get better on to have any chance next time around. brandon lewis has been tasked with this in his role as the chair of the conservative party, he has been writing this morning, giving an interview this morning talking about how he intends to do that to try and encourage shy tories, people who might not be willing to declare that they are conservative supporters, he wa nts to they are conservative supporters, he wants to encourage them to post their support and spread their m essa 9 es their support and spread their m essa g es of their support and spread their messages of support online. he was talking about his plans to try and reinvigorate the tory grassroots. what matters to me is that we have got a huge number of people, not just members by volunteers and activists around the country, at their day activists around the country, at theirday in and activists around the country, at their day in and day out knocking on doors, delivering leaflets and getting involved in social media, to
11:10 am
spread the positive things about what we're doing for people. to get that message in local and general elections to make sure we give good governance. elections to make sure we give good governance . have elections to make sure we give good governance. have you got as many members of the labour party? i'm not going to play a numbers game. they are absolutely taking you to the clea ners are absolutely taking you to the cleaners online, as you have more or less admitted and that they have lots of people they can mobilise up and down the country to cheat constituencies with actual bodies knocking on doors and handing out leaflets. the conservative party has nothing like that number of people. we have a huge number of great people delivering leaflets every day and knocking on doors. injune last year was the test, we did not win the seats we wanted but we got over 1 million votes that we wanted. in decades, and i want to make sure we're building on that and as you say quite rightly, building our online presence as well but doing it in and spectral way. brandon lewis talking about the challenges of
11:11 am
increasing membership. the numbers issue incidentally has been a lifeline recently because they have not published the figures publicly for many years, and there are calls for many years, and there are calls for them to be more transparent. labour is claiming around half a million and error fears around tory circles that it has not too 100,000. clearly things for brandon lewis to get his teeth into. building up the activists from the ground level and focusing on their online strategy. will stop chinese media is reporting that the oil tanker which has been on fire in the east china sea for more than a week, has finally sunk. the iranian ship had been adrift and ablaze off the shanghai coast for eight days, following a collision with another vessel. china central television has said the ship "suddenly ignited" and sank. iranian officials say all 32 crew members have died. the governor of the state of hawaii has blamed human errorfor a mobile
11:12 am
phone alert sent to residents warning of an imminent missile attack. the false alarm caused widespread panic and included the words: "this is not a drill". a corrected text message wasn't sent out until 38 minutes later. bill hayton reports. for around half an hour on sunday, the people of hawaii looked anxiously to the skies. on a university campus, students ran for emergency shelters. an official text warned residents to prepare for the worst. people cowered in bathrooms or took what cover they could. we all huddled together. we thought, if this is going to be the end, we are in a beautiful place, doing something we love. but, god, it was pretty scary, i tell you. you start hearing stories about what was going on at waikiki beach, they were evacuating hotels, children being pushed into drainpipes. was a north korean nuclear missile about to hit honolulu? actually, no.
11:13 am
the whole thing was the result of a stunningly simple mistake. at 8:05am, the test was started. at 8:07am, that's when the trigger is pulled on the test. the wrong button was pushed on this test. it went into an actual event versus a test. there is fury on hawaii that the click of a single button could be responsible for so much panic. that anger is directed towards the state government. i know first—hand that what happened today was totally unacceptable. and many in our community were deeply affected by this. and i am sorry for that pain and confusion that anyone might have experienced. last month, in response to north korea's missile and nuclear tests, hawaii reinstated its warning
11:14 am
sirens for the first time since the end of the cold war. at least everyone now knows the system works, but that is small comfort for the millions who thought their world was about to end on saturday. dramatic pictures have emerged of a passenger plane that skidded off a runway at a turkish coastal airport — after being hit by a bird. the pegasus aircraft landed halfway down a steep slope into the black sea after making an emergency landing at trabazon airport. none of the 162 passengers or cabin crew where hurt in the incident. let's hear more from our correspondence. amazing pictures, i cannot imagine what it would be like to be on board a plane. but, it seems like nobody was hurt.
11:15 am
to be on board a plane. but, it seems like nobody was hurtm to be on board a plane. but, it seems like nobody was hurt. it is remarkable. a few people were taken to hospitalfor remarkable. a few people were taken to hospital for precautions. remarkable. a few people were taken to hospitalfor precautions. but according to the governor nobody was injured and everybody managed to evacuate and get away safely. this accident happened about 8:00pm in darkness last night. adam king anybody quite realised the context of what had happened until we saw those daylight images today. so, this was a routine flight from ankara, the aircraft was landing, it skidded off the end of the runway in rainy conditions and came to rest, as you can see on that steep slope with its nose just metres from the sea. with its nose just metres from the sea. one of the engines of the plane actually detached from the wing and carried on down the slope and ended up carried on down the slope and ended up in the water. because of the action, we heard about the possibility of a bird strike. people talking about the possibility of ice on the runway. the official weather report says it was raining at the
11:16 am
time. the airport itself was closed, understandably, for quite a time last night. but it seems to be open now. you can see is in pictures now of the evacuation under way. you can imagine it would be difficult enough, when the plane is on the level, but one that is on a very steep slope, it is amazing that everybody got out safely. it really is, and also amazing that the plane did not keep sliding down that very steep slope into the water. that is right. i mean, a plane essentially is like a tin can, it is actually quite alike, which is why it's the engines, the heaviest part of it, then momentum kept them going and they did end up in the water. but people looking at that image will be horrified if you have a fear of flying, those images do not help. but, billions of flights last year, and not a single fatality in commercialjet and not a single fatality in commercial jet aviation. and not a single fatality in commercialjet aviation. that is a very good reminder. thank you. the headlines on bbc news: the justice secretary

england put the aussies into bat and adil rashid got the big wicket of steve smith — he was out for just 23. but, the hosts put themselves in a good position with 107 from opener aaron finch. and then half centuries from mitchell marsh and marcus stoinis helped them to 30k for eight off their 50 overs. but england and roy got off to a flyer and were always ahead of the required run rate. the opener shared a record partnership for england in this format of 221 withjoe root. root himself made 91 unbeaten and england reached their target. for anthonyjoshua fans, confirmation at last of his world heavyweight unification clash with new zealand'sjoseph parker. following weeks of negotiations, the two reigning heavyweight champs will meet on the 31st of march at cardiff's principality stadium — wherejoshua staged his most recent victory against french challenger carlos ta kam. the contest will put the winner

11:20 am
we will see. roger federer says his age helps take the pressure off as he heads into the australian open tipped to win. the swiss five—time champion won his first major title for five years with a stunning run in melbourne last year. and with rivals novak djokovic and rafael nadal on their way back from injury, and britain's andy murray absent, federer remains the man to beat. with age i feel like i've played down my chances just because i don't think 36—year—old should be a favourite in turn and. that should not the case. that's why i see things more relaxed. i'm at a later stage in my career. maybe somebody like a rafah, with the year he has had, or a novak, with the six titles he has had, even if it is unknown how he is feeling, they could very well be the favourites. at the end of the day, it's alljust talk beforehand. and finally, we're now going to show you a piece of sporting perfection — and it couldn't come at a better
