Click video. A former helicopter pilot has been named as one of the astronauts picked for a five-month mission in space. Major Tim Peake, from Sussex, is Britain's first official astronaut. He'll be flying to the International Space Station in two years' time. Fred reports.
The 41-year-old agreed to show Fred around the European Space Agency's training facility because he was inspired to study science by the presenter's ITV programme 'How' as a child.
In 2010, ITV News Meridian's Fred Dinenage went to meet Major Tim Peake after he completed the first phrase of his training to go into space.
"It was absolutely a dream. For me as a test pilot, to become an astronaut is the absolute pinacle of that career" he told Fred.
"The view of the earth. Everyone says that is the most incredible thing to see".
"Learning Russian has been the toughest thing I have had to do. Your up there by yourself. There is no doctor, no engineer so you need to learn all of these skills".
Britain's first official astronaut Major Tim Peake said he would tweet from space like Chris Hadfield had done in a bid to "try and inspire a generation."
He added that he was "delighted" after being chosen to travel to space.
UK astronaut Tim Peake has been given a date to fly to the International Space Station (ISS).
The date of the mission is yet to be made public but it will not be before 2015.
The European Space Agency (Esa) is to release the details and the date of his mission to fly to the International Space Station (ISS) later today.
Peake has been in training for an expedition to the ISS since 2009, and will fly aboard a Soyuz rocket from Baikonur in Kazakhstan.
He was a major and a helicopter pilot in the British Army Air Corps.
Once in orbit Peake will help to maintain the 27,000km/h platform and carry out science experiments in Esa's Columbus laboratory module
Some clerical child abusers may have so far gone unrecognised for their historical crimes within the scandal-hit Diocese of Chichester, a report says.Its authors also report that other survivors of known abusing clergymen may still feel unable to come forward to report their suffering.
The findings of the report, published tonight, have prompted the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Justin Welby, to renew his apology to victims of clerical abuse for their "pain and hurt".
Dr Welby said the Anglican church can never ignore the "hurt and damage" committed to victims who should "never have been let down" by people who should have been trusted.
The final report into the operation of child protection policies in the Diocese of Chichester in West Sussex has been published two years after the former Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, ordered a visitation.
It followed a series of scandals involving clergymen within the diocese which has led to several being arrested, charged and convicted for historic sex crimes against children.
The report's authors, Bishop John Gladwin and Chancellor Rupert Bursell QC, said the diocese has "moved forward a very long way" in recent months and has put in place "excellent" safeguarding practices.
The diocese is "committed" to preventing any further abuse occurring and to responding effectively to the ongoing trauma of victims that will last "very many years", the report says.
