our main story. a number of people have died, and others have been injured, after a car drove at high speed into a christmas parade in the us state of wisconsin. more than 20 people — half of them children — were taken to hospital following the incident. a "person of interest" is in police custody. 0ur north america correspondent peter bowes reports. this was the scene seconds before the holiday parade in waukesha descended into chaos and mayhem. all of a sudden, a red sports utility vehicle ploughed at high speed into a school marching band that was entertaining the crowd. the sequence of events was captured on video by the city's livestream of the parade and on the mobile phones of people there in person. much of it quickly shared in social media. screaming. horrified and screaming, the onlookers, families with children, fled for their lives as the suv sped off. the vehicle struck more than 20 individuals. some of the individuals were children and there were some fatalities as a result of this incident. we will not be releasing information
6:03 am
on fatalities at this time while we are working on notifying the family members of the deceased. police say an officer fired his gun at the vehicle to try to stop it. officials say no bystanders were injured as a result. the car has since been recovered and one person is in custody. the authorities have not given any indication of a possible motive. today, our community faced horror and tragedy in what should have been a community celebration. i'm deeply saddened to know that so many in our community went to a parade but ended up dealing with injury and heartache. the white house says it's monitoring the situation and the fbi is helping the local authorities with their investigation. this was the town's first holiday parade after months of restrictions because of covid. but tragedy struck. and at this stage, no—one understands why.
6:04 am
peter bowes, bbc news, los angeles. some awfulfootage, isn't some awful footage, isn't there? let's go now to our north america correspondent peter bowes. peter, what is the latest? what do we know? yes, good morning. we are getting — what do we know? yes, good morning. we are getting new _ what do we know? yes, good morning. we are getting new information - what do we know? yes, good morning. we are getting new information in - we are getting new information in the last few minutes. a couple of bits of extra information. city officials have tweeted that five people are confirmed to have lost their lives are more than a0 people were injured. they stress those numbers could change as they continue their investigation. we are also hearing from cbs news, the partner of the bbc in the united states with a referred to a conversation with law enforcement official familiar with the investigation, saying the suspect in this case may have been fleeing from another scene, this case may have been fleeing from anotherscene, possibly this case may have been fleeing from another scene, possibly an knife attack when he encountered, he or
6:05 am
she not confirmed, defined whether that person then met the parade and they are saying that terrorism is not being looked into as a possible cause at this stage. that does put the situation in a slightly more different light to what had been previously feared, that this event with this parade had been deliberately attacked. just to stress by the investigation still in the very early stages and police say that when dawn breaks in a few hours' time they will be holding another news conference to provide some new information.— another news conference to provide some new information. thank you for the update — some new information. thank you for the update we _ some new information. thank you for the update. we have _ some new information. thank you for the update. we have seen _ some new information. thank you for the update. we have seen the - some new information. thank you for the update. we have seen the videosj the update. we have seen the videos ourselves anew has have seen them as well. so many eyewitnesses have been horrified by what they stop yes, i have heard from so many witnesses talking about how this happened so suddenly. talking about how this happened so suddenl . , ., , suddenly. these were families with children just _ suddenly. these were families with children just along _ suddenly. these were families with children just along the _

6:07 am
another day of unrest, unsettling another european capital. this is brussels. what began as an organised, peaceful march quickly turned nasty. some protesters threw fireworks at police. 0thers targeted their vehicles. 0fficers intervened with tear gas and water cannon. belgium hasjust brought in new rules in response to a sharp rise in infections. demonstrators are mainly angry about the use of covid passes, which stops the unvaccinated from entering venues, such as restaurants or bars. some object to plans to make vaccinations mandatory for health workers. translation: we know that the virus is there, l but we leave it to people to decide whether or not to be vaccinated. translation: i came to give my i opinion about freedom of expression and individual choice and really to be able to respect everyone's choices.
6:08 am
the netherlands witnessed the most extreme violence this weekend. rotterdam was rocked by rioters. police opened fire, shooting at the crowd with live rounds in response to what they described as a life—threatening situation. vandals torched bicycles in the hague. these startling demos happening, too, in austria, croatia and denmark reflect rumbling frustrations about the evolving covid restrictions, considered essential to bring down record high infection rates. and there's more trouble here in the netherlands. small groups of people destroying things in the northern city of groningen and reports of unrest elsewhere too. it's mostly peaceful now but the catalyst for this still exists, and many countries are watching and wondering whether this latest disturbing symptom may be coming their way. with varying vaccine rates, getting the shots in is seen as critical, but they won't cure
6:09 am
the distrust or divisions seeping through some european societies. anna holligan, bbc news in the hague. the government's being urged to rethink the latest changes to its social care overhaul in england because of concerns that poorer people will be disproportionately affected. ministers insist the plans, which will be voted on in parliament today, will protect everyone from what they describe as the "catastrophic costs" of care. let's speak to our chief political correspondent adam fleming. adam... not everybody is happy about this, are they? not everybody is happy about this, are the ? ., ., _, . , are they? there are growing concerns about this. even _ are they? there are growing concerns about this. even though _ are they? there are growing concerns about this. even though today - are they? there are growing concerns about this. even though today will. about this. even though today will not be a decisive vote, it is just a bit of the process on introducing the pap. it will reveal to us how disgruntled people are, particularly on the conservative backbenches where concerns seem to be growing the most and the fastest. just a reminder about what this is all
6:10 am
about in two years time, the government is going to introduce a cap so no one pays more than £86,000 for their care gusts during a lifetime. people who receive a little bit of help, financial help from local authorities, the government, those contributions will not contribute to peoples progress towards the cap only money they spend from their own pocket. that has reinforced already existing concerns from people about the whole pap system, that it benefits the wealthy but expensive homes, rather than the less wealthy with less expensive homes. that has reinforced concerns about that. we are part way through the process. we will get a feel for what the politics is around this today. this does not come in for another two years yet. less than i% of the population in england account for more than i6% of all visits to accident and emergency departments.
6:11 am
a study by the british red cross shows some of the people in this group — known as high intensity users — visit emergency departments more than 300 times a year. dominic hughes has this report. accident and emergency departments across the uk are busier than ever, with some patients facing long waits for treatment. now, a study of six years of nhs data reveals how a small number of people, known as high intensity users, are returning to a&es time and time again. high—intensity use of an a&e department is defined as more than five visits in a year. while less than 0.7% of england's population fall into this category, nhs data from 2015 showed they accounted for a significant proportion — i6% of all a&e visits, and well over a quarter of all ambulance journeys, as well as 26% of all emergency hospital admissions in england. but specialist teams based in a&es across england can help to reduce frequent visits by offering individual support to people who feel hospital is their only option.
6:12 am
the reasons for people attending a&e are quite complex, but it's often because they don't feel they've got anywhere else to go and they fall in through the gaps between other services and teams previously. and we found that really interesting. there's a couple of cohorts, which are particular frequent attenders at a&e. there's younger people from the age of 22 to 29, who might have particular mental health problems as well as other issues. and those over 70, who have other complex issues, including chronic loneliness. so it's really important to work with people, to understand them as individuals, so we can get them the support that they need, hopefully before they even get to a&e. specialist help can cut repeat visits by more than 80%, potentially saving the nhs millions of pounds, and reducing the pressure on an already—stretched service. dominic hughes, bbc news. chinese tennis star peng shuai, who disappeared from the public eye almost three weeks ago, has said she is safe and well in a video call with the international olympic committee.
6:13 am
the ioc said its president thomas bach had spoken to peng for 30 minutes and she was "doing fine". 0ther footage of her at a restaurant and tennis match has also emerged over the weekend — but the women's tennis association says it's still concerned about her wellbeing. charging points for electric vehicles will have to be installed at new homes — as well as new offices and supermarkets in england, from next year, under new legislation being outlined by borisjohnson today. the prime minister will tell business leaders that another ia5,000 charging points will be installed annually but labour says the announcement doesn't address what it called the "appalling" geographical divide in available ev points. a week after the queen had to pull out of the remembrance day service at the cenotaph because of a back strain, she's attended a christening for two of her great grandchildren at windsor. mike and zara tindall�*s son lucas was baptised alongside august, the son of princess eugenie and jack brooksbank. her majesty was pictured in the back
6:14 am
of a black range rover at the royal lodge in windsor on sunday as she joined other family members. it's 6:13am. carol has made it to the weather studio after a very exciting weekend. i went to strictly and watched dan, he was brilliant. a cold start to the day with frost around, also some sunshine will stop it is feeling chilly. not surprisingly consider there is quite a widespread frost. i is in charge of the at the moment. a week front moving south. and weather front moving south. and weather front moving scotland. in scotland and northern ireland you can see amber colours. not quite as cold as further south. a lot of sunshine. we
6:15 am
will catch a few showers in the east of england, the south—east and the channel islands. where we have that front in northern scotland, some patchy rain and drizzle. we might see a little bit of that getting into northern ireland. we are looking at a dry day with sunshine for the rest of the uk with temperatures between seven and ten. it will feel chilly but all relative to last week when some of us got up to last week when some of us got up to 17 degrees. in the evening and overnight period, all this cloud heading further south, producing showers and drizzle. still showers across the english channel and the south—east. where there are blues, it will be cold enough for frost. thank you very much. definitely cold getting into the car this morning. see you later. a memorial service for conservative mp sir david amess, who was killed last month, will take place this afternoon
6:16 am
in his southend constituency. will take place this afternoon he'll not only be remembered will take place this afternoon for his work as a politician, having served as an mp for nearly a0 years, but also for his friendship and compassion as zoe conway explains. # i walked across an empty land # i knew the pathway like the back of my hand # i felt the earth beneath my feet # sat by the river and it made me complete...# the southend vox choir are singing somewhere only we know, the song sir david amess always asked for when he came to see them. # 0h, simple thing # where have you gone # i'm getting tired and i need someone to rely on.# he wasn'tjust the choir�*s mp,
6:17 am
he was their patron, their friend. he knew most of our members by name. he would recall previous performances. he wasn'tjust there as the mp sir david amess, he was there as david — as a person with a family and with friends. and he definitely felt like he was one of us. yeah. he understood that music could be good. he understood. he enjoyed music himself. and he knew that music could, you know, bring a community together. and that was what he enjoyed. he enjoyed, again, seeing all of those people. # is this the place?# sir david was known as mr southend. he loved the place. he loved the people. lakh sandhu and his father, sandy, turned to sir david for help two years ago. lakh had been imprisoned for months without charge in prague
6:18 am
in the czech republic. straight away, he met my family. he even came over and visited me to make sure that my conditions were good. how i was. that was quite heartwarming. i didn't really expect that from an mp, but he just was worried about myself and especially my family, to make sure that this horrific ordeal was going to come to an end. sir david raised lakh's case in parliament, wrote to the foreign secretary. a year later, a judge ordered that lakh be released and he was later acquitted. it was a personal issue of my son, brother. and i like to recall him as a public servant. i saw him helping so many people. he was... we all will miss him. he came to my allotment and it was summertime and i had beans ready to take.
6:19 am
he said, "can i take some beans, please?" i was too happy to give it to him. this year's winner of westminster dog of the year is vivien. and in memory of sir david amess. sir david's dog vivien was crowned westminster dog of the year after his death, but he didn'tjust care about his bulldog. he was passionate about the welfare of all dogs. he was a frequent visitor here at the dog's home in basildon. he was a really enthusiastic and empathetic person and had a really lovely energy about him. you know, he was a great supporter of some of the campaigns that we're involved in as an organisation, including our puppy pilot taskforce, to end the cruel puppy smuggling trade. so, you know, he was a real, real champion for the underdog, if you pardon the pun. southend is notjust saying goodbye to its mp. the city is saying goodbye to its most passionate champion.
6:20 am
# this could be the end of everything. # so why don't we go. # somewhere only we know.# zoe conway with that report. we are going to give you more information about our top story happening in the united states. we are getting more and more information as time ticks on. it has been confirmed five people have died and a0 injured after a car drove at high speed into a christmas parade. this is in the united states state of wisconsin in the last few hours. i have seen some of the video footage. it shows a car travelling at some speed driving through the christmas parade. what we have been hearing in the last ten minutes or
6:21 am
so is not only confirmation of what sally was saying about five being dead and a0 injured but also that driver may have been fleeing another incident which is rumoured to have been a knife as well. there has been an update from police and we will be speaking to peter throughout the morning. police have said a person of interest is in custody and dozens of interest is in custody and dozens of those injured, the a0 injured, our children as well taking part in a christmas parade. really distressing images coming out in the last year hours. it might be something you are waking up to this morning on social media. a lot of that footage is around. we are showing you a little section of it without sound. lots of people had their phones with them. confirmation of five fatalities and a0 people injured in that situation we have been reporting in the us state of wisconsin overnight. that is our main story this morning. we will be

6:32 am
of last night's i'm a celebrity with former camp mate russell watson. i have to be a little bit honest with you know. i'm nervous today about sir kev. i have total faith but he is taking on something. kevin sinfield is a man who likes a challenge. last year it was seven marathons in seven days. later this morning he'll start something even bigger. he's going to be running 101 miles injust 2a hours — without any sleep — raising money for motor neurone disease research, and his friend and former leeds rhinos team—mate rob burrow, who has the disease. kevin will set off in a couple of hours from the leicester tigers stadium, where he currently works as a coach. he'll will run all through the day and all through the night, until he finally arrives at headingley stadium, the home of the leeds rhinos, tomorrow morning. breakfast�*s jayne mccubbin is at leicester's welford road ground this morning, where she'll wave him
6:33 am
off a little later. morning, jayne. good morning. we are so excited to be down here out of the home of leicester tigers this morning, where it is all kicking off. hopefully you can see the screens around the stadium. this is what it is about. it is about sir kev going the extra mile for rob burrow, his best mate, his old team—mate with leeds rhinos. he will set off on this epic feat of endurance over the next 2a hours. let's remind ourselves. he is going to run seven kilometres an hour every hour for 2a hours, no rest, to run seven kilometres an hour every hourfor 2a hours, no rest, no sleep, only time to stop and eat a lot. i think it's about 13,000 calories over the 2a hours. and we are going to be here cheering him off. let me do some introductions. this is team mnd association. good
6:34 am
morning. this is team leeds teaching hospitals. good morning. and this is team leicester tigers. good morning. there is a cast of thousands here at this morning. we are going to meet more people later, including sir kev. have a look at this film right now from graham satchell that tells you everything you need to know about what is happening in the next 2a hours. kevin sinfield sets off this morning on an epic challenge. he's running 2a hours straight from leicester to leeds — it's101 miles with no sleep. i want it to be horrible. raining and sleeting and windy and... i want everything to get thrown at us that can be. there's people out there doing it really tough with mnd, and people connected with mnd who are fighting a really tough fight at the minute, and i'm just showing them that we care.
6:35 am
this is a sensational try. there aren't many in super league who can do that. kev is running for his former team—mate and friend, rugby league legend rob burrow. rob was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in 2019. his family can't quite believe what kev is about to do. 100 miles in one day without no sleep? you are crazy! you know we think you are amazing. thank you for doing everything you have done for my dad and people with mnd. good luck on your next challenge. today's run will be a physical and mental test like no other. running through the night, sleep deprived, glycogen depleted, fatigued. he motivates us to do things that we don't think we can do and he does that by leading by example and doing things that nobody should be able to do. kev will be raising money for people with motor neurone disease like ian, was diagnosed in 2019.
6:36 am
mnd is a cruel disease, a degenerative brain disorder. there is no effective treatment, no cure. but in the mnd community kev has become a hero — you could say a heart—throb. he's a bit of all right! elsie! don't! i think he's... ..he's amazing. the money raised today will help build new much—needed treatment centres. a place that has some dignity, has some joy and has some hope, will provide so much hope for people when they enter it, that they know the research is going on, that they know the technology is there. and just an environment with some green space, some light. it makes such a difference to so many families. i suppose you have your good days, your bad days, but, erm, yeah,...
6:37 am
right from the very beginning, when rob burrow first announced his diagnosis, kevin sinfield was there. today he will once again go the extra mile for his best friend. you can see really clearly the love and respect that he has for rob and thatis and respect that he has for rob and that is the thing that is driving him on. it's so powerful to see, it really is. so much is not known about motor neurone disease. there is no definitive test to find out if you got it. it's a process of elimination to find out. there is no treatment. there is certainly no cure. and perhaps ten years ago, very little was known amongst the public about mnd. but today that is different. and it's largely down to rob burrow and this amazing friendship he has with his old
6:38 am
captain. come and meet some people know to talk a bit more about this amazing day and the impact of these guys have had. i am joined by rob's neurologist. how is he doing? i can't give out much details because of patient confidentiality but he is in great spirits, absolutely great. very positive. in great spirits, absolutely great. very positive-— in great spirits, absolutely great. ve ositive. ~ .

6:54 am
period. good morning. welcome to our cosy christmas lunch. we are counting down the 3a days until the big man easier. we are hoping that his full team of elves have turned up his full team of elves have turned up for the shift because there is so much competition for workers this morning. 0ne for workers this morning. one website that collated job ads found more than 30,000 seasonal roles up for grabs, up 50% on pre—pandemic levels. some big household names looking for seasonal workers. people available to work temporarily over the busy christmas period. there are also 300 ads for a santas. and 35 vacancies for ice rink supervisors. employers have started to say to themselves, how can i stand out? nearly 1800 of the seasonaljobs on offer include a bonus. amazon is offering up to £2000 to newjoiners and hand—picked hotels are offering
6:55 am
and hand—picked hotels are offering a £500 welcome and shake. that puts the biggerfirms had a big advantage. it is harderfor small and seasonalfirms to advantage. it is harderfor small and seasonal firms to offer extras. it is the first year we will be selling trees, which are actually grown here. so, that's created a whole set of new problems, really, because we need extra staff, we need qualified staff for using chainsaws. and i did think it would be reasonably easy. it hasn't been, actually. how weekend staff are pretty regular. that's never been a problem. they enjoy coming here to work. customers are happy. but the full—time staff, that has been an issue this year. so why is it happening? 0fficial so why is it happening? official figures out last week gave us a clue. the overall number ofjob vacancies rose a00,000 to a new record of 1.2 million in a three month period to august. at the same
6:56 am
time the unemployment rate fell to a.3% from a.5% in the period before. we still don't know the true impact of furlough ending. but lockdown ending seems to have pushed a lot of people into work, creating a sudden competition for talent. that is a good thing for an employment —— for unemployment figures, but not if you are a business needing more workers. it is also having an impact for us as consumers. employers are having to really change — employers are having to really change their approach, offering bonuses— change their approach, offering bonuses to people to start. looking at the _ bonuses to people to start. looking at the salary to attract the calibre they need — they need. lots of things at play here. lockdown saw lots of people think about career changes. you are changing jobs more frequently. there are more young people staying on in education and more older workers deciding not to come back to work.
6:57 am
and of course we did lose a lot of workers when we left the eu. what are the implications? well, we are already seeing competition for staff driving wages up in the private sector. that makes it even harder for smaller businesses. long term we will see that push prices up again. in the short term don't be surprised if father christmas can't deliver everything you ask for it, done. i know you have got a long list. and also, if you are at your favourite restaurant over christmas don't be surprised if the service is not what it was because they are struggling to get stuff. we it was because they are struggling to get stuff-— it was because they are struggling to net stuff. ~ ., ., ., ., to get stuff. we need to manage our exoectations — to get stuff. we need to manage our expectations for _ to get stuff. we need to manage our expectations for a _ to get stuff. we need to manage our expectations for a little _ to get stuff. we need to manage our expectations for a little while. i expectations for a little while. thank you. i haven't really thought much about christmas yet. time now to get the news, travel and weather where you are. good morning, i'm asad ahmad. workers at a london stockbrokers are to be given

everybody in austria get a covid jab by february. there were protests here on saturday in vienna as well, although they were not as violent as we saw in belgian or the netherlands in the last couple of nights. people here worried about the idea of a compulsory covid vaccination and they... thousands of people took to they... thousands of people took to the streets. this time people will be on lockdown for about 20 more days and then it will be reassessed. good to tilt to you. thank you very much stop —— talk to you. the government's being urged to rethink the latest changes to its social care overhaul in england because of concerns that poorer people will be disproportionately affected. ministers insist the plans, which will be voted on in parliament today, will protect everyone from what they describe as the "catastrophic costs" of care. let's speak to our chief political correspondent adam fleming. morning to you. already rumblings

7:10 am
legislation is going through parliament. it is halfway through the house of commons and still has to go to the house of lords. it is not close to being a done deal and this will be another chance to take the temperature and it does look like the temperature is increasing. also worth remembering that cap does not get introduced for another couple of years. the government wants to remind everyone that everyone will be better off under the new system than they are under the new system than they are under the current system. it is just people's ideal version of the system is a bit better than the version thatis is a bit better than the version that is going to be introduced. thank you very much. less than 1% of the population in england, account for more than 16 percent of all visits to accident and emergency departments. a six—year study of nhs data, carried out by the british red cross,
7:11 am
reveals how a small number of people — known as high intensity users — are using the service more than 300 times a year. charging points for electric vehicles will have to be installed at new homes — as well as new offices and supermarkets in england, from next year, under new legislation being outlined by borisjohnson today. the prime minister will tell business leaders that another 1a5,000 charging points will be installed annually but labour says the announcement doesn't address what it called the "appalling" geographical divide in available ev points. it's 7:11am. here's carol with a look at this morning's weather. it is frosty to start the day for many of us. one or two exceptions in the far north of scotland where we have cloud and patchy rain. a few showers on the east coast. it might be a while. most of us are looking at sunny spells. compared with last week it will feel a lot chillier. a lot of blue sky to start the day. temperature is widely around orjust below freezing. showers coming in
7:12 am
along the channel islands. also showers at times coming in from the north sea. these are likely to be wintry first thing this morning. they will peter out. then there showers across the north of scotland producing patchy light rain. there may be the art shower. for most it will be dry and a the temperatures, seven to 11 degrees. more or less average for the time of year but lower than last week. quite hefty winds across the far north of scotland. will continue they overnight. the cloud and patchy rain and drizzle sinks further south. some could get into cambria and northern ireland. under clear skies but this is where we will see frost once again and mist and fog patches in the midlands and parts of wales, which tomorrow will be slow to clear. as we've been hearing this morning, senior conservative mps
7:13 am
are urging the government to rethink the latest changes to its social care overhaul in england because of concerns that poorer people will be disproportionately affected. ministers insist the plans, which will be voted on in parliament tonight, will protect everyone from what they describe as the "catastrophic costs" of care. let's speak to shadow health and social care minister jonathan ashworth. morning to you, mr ashworth. great to see this morning. what you make of the proposals you are going to be talking later today? it is of the proposals you are going to be talking later today?— talking later today? it is a care: sa int talking later today? it is a care: sa in: it talking later today? it is a care: saying it will — talking later today? it is a care: saying it will protect _ talking later today? it is a care: saying it will protect people i talking later today? it is a care: | saying it will protect people from the catastrophic gusts. if you need care and you are fortunate enough to own a £1.5 million has quite 95% of your assets will be protected. if your assets will be protected. if you are unfortunate enough to need social care in say barrow, hartlepool and mansfield, you will lose nearly everything. that is

7:20 am
a bunch of noise and swelling to the right to actually try to avoid people. many of us assumed he was somebody like a local resident who was really upset that a parade was going on and was trying to get round it. somebody who had blundered into the parade route. when he passed us, he started to accelerate and moved into the main part of where the casualties actually occurred. at that point, i never heard gunshots but at one point one of our policemen took three shots to try to stop the vehicle. and then police on our end of the street basically told us we needed to vacate the street. we always have a church open during this parade for rest rooms, for warmth, stuff like that. we started to pull people into the church, including a dance team. what ended

8:01 am
shots to try to stop the vehicle. police are now and at the street basically told us we needed to vacate the street. another night of unrest in europe, as police clash with protestors in brussels over tougher covid restrictions. people in southend will pay their respects to sir david amess today, as a memorial service and procession is held in his constituency. seasonal staff shortages. the competition's on to find father christmases, elves, ice rink workers and supermarket staff. some businesses offering £2,000 to new recruits. a tearful goodbye from ole gunnar solskjaer, as he leaves manchester united. that's. .. they'll be fine. i'll watch them and support them. and we'll get reaction this morning. we'll talke to the former manchester united captain, bryan robson.
8:02 am
it will be a dry and sunny day today. in scotland there will be thicker cloud and patchy rain. showers in south—east england. all the details later in the programme. it's monday, the 22nd of november. our main story. five people have died in the american state of wisconsin, after a car was driven at high speed through a christmas parade. forty other people were injured including children. the vehicle smashed through a barrier before heading down the main street in the city of waukesha, around 20 miles west of milwaukee. police are holding a person in custody. 0ur north america correspondent, peter bowes, has this report. this was the scene seconds before the holiday parade in waukesha descended into chaos and mayhem. all of a sudden, a red sports utility vehicle ploughed at high speed into a school marching band that was entertaining the crowd. the sequence of events was captured on video by the city's livestream of the parade and on the mobile phones of people there in person.
8:03 am
much of it quickly shared in social media. screaming. horrified and screaming, the onlookers, families with children, fled for their lives as the suv sped off. the vehicle struck more than 20 individuals. some of the individuals were children and there were some fatalities as a result of this incident. we will not be releasing information on fatalities at this time while we are working on notifying the family members of the deceased. police say an officer fired his gun at the vehicle to try to stop it. officials say no bystanders were injured as a result. the car has since been recovered and one person is in custody. the authorities have not given any indication of a possible motive. today, our community faced horror and tragedy in what should have been a community celebration. i'm deeply saddened to know that so many in our community went to a parade but ended up dealing
8:04 am
with injury and heartache. the white house says it's monitoring the situation and the fbi is helping the local authorities with their investigation. reports suggest the suspect was fleeing another scene, possibly a knife fight, when he ran into people at the parade. this was the town's first holiday parade after months of restrictions because of covid. but it ended in tragedy. peter bowes, bbc news, los angeles. earlier, we spoke to reverend david simmons from st matthias episcopal church in waukesha who witnessed the incident. one of our policemen took three shots to try to stop the vehicle and then police on our end of the street basically told us we needed to vacate the street. so we always have our church opened during this parade for rest rooms, warmth and stuff. we started putting people into the
8:05 am
church. we are joined now by cbs reporter adam rife who is 20 minutes away from the scene in waukesha. thank you for talking to us. any new information? new information does keep coming out. five people dead and a0 injured, that could change throughout the morning as more information is learned. a lot of these people self transported to hospital. many of them are trying to connect. police are trying to total “p connect. police are trying to total up people from six different hospitals at least. a lot of the families to loved ones themselves as well as emergency services. the situation on the ground, it happened about 20 city blocks blocked off by trying to keep people away from the
8:06 am
scene. the good news if there is any, the person of interest is in custody right now and the community says —— and there is no longer an active threat. says -- and there is no longer an active threat.— active threat. they couldn't even hold the parade _ active threat. they couldn't even hold the parade last _ active threat. they couldn't even hold the parade last year. - active threat. they couldn't even | hold the parade last year. people were gathering together for the first time in a long time. it is 58th annual— first time in a long time. it is 58th annual parade. - first time in a long time. it 3 58th annual parade. last year first time in a long time. it 1 58th annual parade. last year the covid pandemic made them postpone. this was supposed to be a triumphant return to the holiday season. triumph and return was the theme tonight. many not directly impacted are also affected by this. there were many youth groups, high school marking bands. even a dance group of elderly women. so many people even if they were not directly impacted, this community will be impacted. the
8:07 am
school has cancelled tomorrow and a local university has also cancelled classes for the entire week. there was thanksgiving on thursday and i wanted to make sure the community could heal. —— they wanted. tens of thousands of people have taken to the streets of brussels to protest against anti—covid measures. fireworks were thrown at police who responded with tear gas and water cannons. it follows similar protests across parts of europe, as leaders try to battle fresh wave of the virus. austria, which has one of the highest infection rates on the continent, has introduced a nationwide lockdown from today and is set to make vaccinations mandatory for everyone. anna holligan has more. another day of unrest, unsettling another european capital. this is brussels. what began as an organised, peaceful march quickly turned nasty. some protesters threw fireworks at police. others targeted their vehicles.
8:08 am
officers intervened with tear gas and water cannon. belgium hasjust brought in new rules in response to a sharp rise in infections. demonstrators are mainly angry about the use of covid passes, which stops the unvaccinated from entering venues, such as restaurants or bars. some object to plans to make vaccinations mandatory for health workers. translation: we know that the virus is there, l but we leave it to people to decide whether or not to be vaccinated. translation: i came to give my i opinion about freedom of expression and individual choice and really to be able to respect everyone's choices. the netherlands witnessed the most extreme violence this weekend. rotterdam was rocked by rioters. police opened fire, shooting at the crowd with live rounds in response to what they described as a life—threatening situation. vandals torched
8:09 am
bicycles in the hague. these startling demos happening, too, in austria, croatia and denmark reflect rumbling frustrations about the evolving covid restrictions, considered essential to bring down record high infection rates. and there's more trouble here in the netherlands. small groups of people destroying things in the northern city of groningen and reports of unrest elsewhere too. it's mostly peaceful now but the catalyst for this still exists, and many countries are watching and wondering whether this latest disturbing symptom may be coming their way. with varying vaccine rates, getting the shots in is seen as critical, but they won't cure the distrust or divisions seeping through some european societies. anna holligan, bbc news in the hague. the government's being urged to rethink the latest changes to its social care overhaul
8:10 am
in england because of concerns that poorer people will be disproportionately affected. ministers insist the plans, which will be voted on in parliament today, will protect everyone from what they describe as the "catastrophic costs" of care. let's speak to our chief political correspondent, adam fleming. good morning. what more do we need to know about this one? the government _ to know about this one? the government is _ to know about this one? the: government is introducing to know about this one? tt;e: government is introducing a to know about this one? tt9 government is introducing a cap to know about this one? tt9: government is introducing a cap on the cost of care in england of £86,000 for the lifetime of an individual. they announce new details last week about how it will work. if you are receiving care funded in part by a local authority or government that will not count towards your contribution towards cap. it is only many coming directly out of your pocket. that means it will take it with less assets and may be a less expensive house longer to reach the cap, which some are saying it is actually going to be more beneficial to richer people who
8:11 am
own more expensive properties. that reenforces concerned some people have had ever since the cap idea was confirmed a couple of months ago. we are still along way from the cap being introduced. there is quite a lot of business that has to happen in parliament. rather than being a decisive moment tonight, it will just an opportunity to take the temperature by particularly amongst backbench conservative mps. it is a temperature i think that is rising. i am sure you will keep an eye with that political thermometer of yours. thank you very much. a week after the queen had to pull out of the remembrance day service at the cenotaph because of a back strain, she's attended a christening for two of her great grandchildren at windsor. mike and zara tindall�*s son lucas was baptised alongside august, the son of princess eugenie and jack brooksbank. her majesty was pictured in the back of a black range rover at the royal lodge in windsor on sunday as she joined

8:35 am
that we care. this is a sensational try. there aren't many in super league who can do that. kev is running for his former team—mate and friend, rugby league legend rob burrow. rob was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in 2019. his family can't quite believe what kev is about to do. 100 miles in one day without no sleep? you are crazy! you know we think you are amazing. thank you for doing everything you have done for my dad and people with mnd. good luck on your next challenge. today's run will be a physical and mental test like no other. running through the night, sleep deprived, glycogen depleted, fatigued. he motivates us to do things that we don't think we can do and he does that by leading by example and doing things that nobody should be able to do. kev will be raising money for people with motor neurone disease like ian,
8:36 am
was diagnosed in 2019. mnd is a cruel disease, a degenerative brain disorder. there is no effective treatment, no cure. but in the mnd community kev has become a hero — you could say a heart—throb. he's a bit of all right! elsie! don't! i think he's... ..he's amazing. the money raised today will help build new much—needed treatment centres. a place that has some dignity, has some joy and has some hope, will provide so much hope for people when they enter it, that they know the research is going on, that they know the technology is there. and just an environment with some green space, some light. it makes such a difference to so many families. i suppose you have your good days, your bad days, but, erm, yeah,... right from the very beginning, when rob burrow first announced his diagnosis, kevin sinfield was there. today he will once again go
8:37 am
the extra mile for his best friend. that is what it is all about. i have been sent a message this morning from somebody who says, everybody needs a friend like kevin in their life and everybody should be that friend for somebody else. here is the man at the moment. we are not going to talk to him. he is going to keep his focus with his team. and in just a few minutes we will be starting the two minute countdown and then the ten second countdown. we know he has already smashed his £100,000 target and he has not even left ear. it is incredible. so much is not known about mnd. there is no
8:38 am
clear decisive, definitive test for it, there is no treatment for it, there certainly is no cure for it. so what are the guys here are doing todayis so what are the guys here are doing today is epic in kind of raising awareness and funds for this specialist centre. so, we are going to go over now to rob burrow�*s neurologist. you can ring the bell now. this marks a two minute countdown. two minutes to go now before he sets off on his journey. there he goes down there, getting ready now, walking past everybody. a round of applause, everybody. applause. let'sjust go applause. let's just go and chat to somebody. what do you think of what he is doing? what do you think of what he is doinu ? s :, what do you think of what he is doina?: :, ~ , doing? amazing. absolutely incredible. _ doing? amazing. absolutely incredible. 24 _ doing? amazing. absolutely incredible. 24 hours - doing? amazing. absolutely| incredible. 24 hours running, doing? amazing. absolutely- incredible. 24 hours running, could ou do incredible. 24 hours running, could you do it? — incredible. 24 hours running, could you do it? no _ incredible. 24 hours running, could

8:43 am
of the country. that is producing some showers. we have got another weather front across the north. you can see it illustrated by the yellow in the chart. that has more clout around it and some spots of rain. ahead of it it is still cold under the skies. the showers could be wintry over the yorkshire moors. they will tend to fade. some of them getting into norfolk. with a line of showers extending from kent to sussex into the channel islands, breezy as well. the cloud in the north chasing some patchy rain. a lot of dry weather in between but feeling colder than it has done. temperature is more or less where they should be at this time of the year which is roughly seven to 11 north to south. it will feel colder than the 1a to maybe 17 that some of us had last week. as we head through this evening and overnight, more of this evening and overnight, more of this cloud spread south. getting into northern england, north west wales and more of northern ireland. still with some drizzle on it, some patchy rain as well. as we come south under clear skies it is going
8:44 am
to be another cold night with some frost. not as widespread as last night. another thing to watch out for first thing, night. another thing to watch out forfirst thing, some patchy night. another thing to watch out for first thing, some patchy fog across the midlands and parts of wales. that will be slow to lift as we go through the course of tomorrow. you can see where we are likely to see the lion's share of the sunshine. some showers in the south—eastern corner and some patchy rain. temperatures down a degree or so on today. as we move into wednesday, a cold front starts to make an impression as it sinks southwards, taking its cloud and rain with it. ahead of it there will be some cloud mac robertson breaks in the cloud with some sunshine. behind it we are back into a mixture of and showers. some of those showers will be wintry, mostly on the higher ground. the wind might have changed direction. temperatures seven to 10 degrees. as we move from

8:46 am
are in children's homes, and that number is rising. local authorities say this is due to a shortage of foster carers and cuts to family support. the government says it's providing new grant funding to help maintain children's social care. our political correspondent chris mason has this report. i realised when i left my mum how little support i have compared to other kids. i was just a bit scared. olivia is 2a and lives in oxford. she was 16 when her life changed in a way she'll never forget. this emergency happened and i had to go into emergency foster care. it was so terrifying for me, i remember at that time. i didn't know where i'll end up. and it was terrifying. and there's a shortage of foster carers. it means the demand for and cost of places in children's homes is rocketing.
8:47 am
from oxfordshire to cheshire, local authorities across england are confronted by this. here in warrington, a new children's home opened in april. this home is part of a trial scheme. the aim is simple. minimise how long children are in the home and put money and effort into stopping them ending up here in the first place. this is a lighthouse. the reason why it's called the lighthouse is that it's a beacon of light for the young people going through theirjourney. right. let's have a look. what we have here? so this is our chillout area. it's yes to beanbags and to mobile phones in here. there are six bedrooms, two reserved for emergency last—minute admissions. this is an insight for most of us into something that is out of sight, unseen, unheard of, perhaps little thought about. and yet it is about some of society's most vulnerable. yes, how to help them, but also to minimise the problems
8:48 am
that will follow — a failure to get it right now. now, the blunt truth is a quarter of the adult prison population in england used to be in care. so meet the policeman based here, who doesn't look like one. imagine if i was coming into work in a full uniform. the young people, firstly, it just wouldn't sit right. you know, me not wear a uniform, it breaks down those barriers away. policing cannot fix everything on their own. so we do a lot ofjoined—up work with obviously with social care, with parents, with carers, with education, with health. and we're realising one of those other terminologies, you can't arrest your way out of this. there's got to be another approach. and that's where i absolutely 100% believe in the system. the children living here are at school right now. at the end of the corridor, the office, the front line in helping children at a desperate time. a place in a children's home is the last resort and hugely expensive. on average in england, more than £a,000 a week.
8:49 am
and sometimes with private providers a lot more. we were recently quoted, you know, £22,000 a week for a child to be placed in a children's home. £22,000 a week! yeah. and when you know, you're faced with the prospect at five o'clock in the evening, where you can't find a home for a child who needs to come into our car, unfortunately, you are between a rock and a hard place. joe and joanne in eastbourne have been foster carers for nine years. when the children come to us and they look so down, they look like they're carrying so much baggage. and then after a few weeks, sometimes you just see their face start to light up. i mean, the fact of the matter is there's more children who need our help than there is carers who can help. yeah, but i also think people have got a misconception about fostering. ithink, you know, it's... am i am i qualified enough to be a foster carer? and it's at the end of the day, it's about your personality, it's about your character,
8:50 am
