10:40 pm
a deal for bottas to leave williams and join mercedes is also lined up and is set to be completed in the new year. team sky say they are confident uk anti—doping will find no wrongdoing when it publishes its report into the contents of a package delivered to the team in 2011. the package was handed over during the criterium du dauphine, an event won by sir bradley wiggins. sir dave brailsford told mps yesterday it contained an over—the—counter decongestant, fluimucil. team sky say they're cooperating fully and look forward to the report. 2007 champion raymond van barneveld is into the second round of the pdc world darts championship. the dutch 12th seed lostjust two legs to englishman robbie green — averaging nearly 100 in the process. he'll play alan norris in round 2. that's all from sportsday. coming up in a moment, the papers. thank you for watching. good night. hello and welcome to our look ahead
10:41 pm
to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are miranda green from the ft and christopher hope, who's chief political correspondent at the daily telegraph. good to see you both. hello. wait until you have finished the papers. you will not be saying that when i am finished with you, mate! the daily mirror has the banner headline, "truck killer could strike again". it quotes a source in the german police as saying the killer is still armed and at large. the telegraph says there's a manhunt in berlin and across europe after the police admitted they'd arrested the wrong man. the times leads on the manhunt for the killer too. it says the attack was the worst terrorist attack on german soil since 1980. the metro recounts the death
10:42 pm
of the lorry‘s legitimate driver, as he fought to try to stop the hijacker from seizing his vehicle. the i says europe is on a christmas terror alert. it says british lorry drivers have been ordered to keep their cabs locked at all times. the mail says "so much for peace on earth", as armed police guard the nativity scene at canterbury cathedral. the express leads on a different story. it says theresa may has refused to guarantee a vote in parliament on the terms of britain's exit from the european union. the paper says mps won't be able to block brexit. i suspect the living men and women might have a different view of that, the members of the supreme court, that is. ok, the daily telegraph. this is the top story, obviously. berlin manhunt as killer escapes, and the picture of angela merkel,
10:43 pm
miranda, a single flower, paying her respects to the dead. that picture i suppose symbolising the weight of responsibility that she bears in her own mind, notjust carrying this country at this time of such horrible tragedy, but also potentially for her policies and what some people are suggesting is her contribution to what may have happened? so that is right, and very striking image of a very stricken leader of a nation, trying to come to terms with another horrible terrorist attack in germany, because of course over the summer there were terrorist attacks in germany as well. but they did not claim lives. this was the first... that is right, but it is very distressing. two news developments today, both of which features largely in the telegraph splash. firstly, it is claiming
10:44 pm
responsibility for the attack. today. and also the awful revelation that the berlin police seem to have arrested the wrong man, who they have released, and the killer is still at large. so there are fears there might be the attacks. but you're absolutely right. this focus on the individual stricken face of angela merkel, leader of the german government, is because they did think the man they had arrested, who they thought was responsible, was a refugee. he doesn't turn out to have been responsible for the attack but merkel is under enormous pressure because of her policy of letting so many refugees from north africa and the middle east into germany. a policy which she had to slightly reversed, but she is under attack, not only from political opponents on the right, but she is also under attack even from within her own governing coalition, and she faces a general election next year. yes, christopher, if it does turn out not to have been a refugee responsible
10:45 pm
for this atrocity, some other faction or whatever, although islamic state have claimed responsibility, does that take the pressure off? it does, and it is clear whether this photograph was taken clear whether this photograph was ta ken after clear whether this photograph was taken after or clear whether this photograph was ta ken after or before clear whether this photograph was taken after or before that, when it was discovered this guy was not the actual driver, but the weight of it is written on her face there. yes, we will have to wait and see how it plays out, but, you know, she cannot be held responsible for a million people and all the things they do and there are criminals in every group... nigel farage thinks that she can. yes, but the guy arrested was the wrong person, so that take something out of it in the short—term, but does not get away from an appalling story of loss of life in berlin. moving on to the i. christmas terror... christopher, yes, the ramifications for the whole of the continent now, particularly
10:46 pm
as this guy, one or two men, however many were involved, have now got away? it is interesting how the papers have treated the same story in different ways. the telegraph using the manhunt, the dramatic thing, who is the guy who did it? the i going into moreover... not as many words in the front, but making it into a british shopping seem to make it a british story. interesting top line, about british lorry drivers ordered to keep their cabs locked at all times. not quite clear whether this is in britain or on the continent but either way, the world that we grew up in, didn't we, in the 19805, every car could be a bomb? now if any lorry... every lorry 5een bomb? now if any lorry... every lorry seen as a potential murderous mi55ile, inching out these new enemies everywhere now. mi55ile, inching out these new enemies everywhere nowi mi55ile, inching out these new enemies everywhere now. i think that is absolutely right. the horrendous attack in nice on the seafront earlier this year, that of course
10:47 pm
was a lorry which had been hijacked then rammed into the crowd. so it seems this is now one of the sort of array of techniques that terrorists will use, and it is very difficult to control, you know. in nice, that is what we were all saying at the time. how can you control for which lorries on the road might be about to runa lorries on the road might be about to run a mock and drive straight through a crowd ? to run a mock and drive straight through a crowd? it is incredibly difficult. not just trucks. through a crowd? it is incredibly difficult. notjust trucks. islamic state have to go through their propaganda arm, soldiers of the caliphate, you true believers, do whatever you can to kill the infidel, use a knife, storms, push them over a cliff, rocks, use vehicles, do anything you can —— a knife, stones. it makes it incredibly difficult... to defend again5t, ye5. incredibly difficult... to defend against, yes. and this security angle which i think all the papers will do more of this week, we, i think, here in the uk, because we
10:48 pm
have that whole generation where we we re have that whole generation where we were so have that whole generation where we were so used to the threat of ira terrorism, we feel our security forces here are excellent, which of course they are, but the sort of phenomenon, lone wolf attacks, then claimed by isis, soldiers of the caliphate, as you say, that is much more difficult to deal with than a terrorist organisation like the ira structured like an army with a line of command and clear political objectives. this is totally different. some people might disagree, but there were boundaries, particularly in their struggle as well. yes, there were. warnings and all the rest of it. the third bullet point, ses unit on stand—by, which of course, writing a different 5tory. .. the sas of course, writing a different story... the sas on stand—by by its nature —— story... the sas on stand—by by its nature — — sas story... the sas on stand—by by its nature —— sas unit on stand—by. story... the sas on stand—by by its nature -- sas unit on stand-by. yes,
10:49 pm
thatis nature -- sas unit on stand-by. yes, that is what it is for. indeed. any eventuality. 0k, inside page of the express. which is angela merkel... i am being told we have lost the express and we're going to go to the times. the first picture of one of the victims. 12 people died, miranda. this am a human face to this tragedy. that is right. -- this isa human this tragedy. that is right. -- this is a human face to the tragedy. when some kind of terrorist out bridge —— over it like this happens, we get this in the news, what do we know? thenin this in the news, what do we know? then in the next 2a hours details emerge of the casualties are. 12 people died, we think, but it could be more. there are still 1a people ina very be more. there are still 1a people in a very bad state in hospital, so the death toll could rise even now, which is worrying to think about. but, yes, the times has gone back on the first available photograph of one of the victims of the attack. an
10:50 pm
italian young woman who is feared to be dead. it has not been confirmed but her phone was found at the scene. they are taking a bit of a ri5k scene. they are taking a bit of a risk in scene. they are taking a bit of a ri5k injournali5tic scene. they are taking a bit of a risk in journalistic term5. scene. they are taking a bit of a risk in journalistic terms. yes, they are. they are trying to sell tomorrow morning's new5 they are. they are trying to sell tomorrow morning's news today, not ea5yin tomorrow morning's news today, not easy in this era of news. they are thinking correctly photographed5 will emerge tomorrow. by tomorrow night, there will probably be 12 pa55port 5ized picture5 night, there will probably be 12 pa55port 5ized pictures of people killed on the front page. they're trying to get ahead of the game and they have ta ken trying to get ahead of the game and they have taken a risk there, becau5e they have taken a risk there, because it may have been phone. how that says it... but i am sure they have made other checks to make sure it is have made other checks to make sure it i5 0k have made other checks to make sure it is ok to take the risk on the front page. also have slightly different quotes in the times story, which is interesting. a quote from angela merkel speaking about how germany would not want to let go of what she calls the life we want to live in germany, free, together and open. this is the other thing, you know. it is how far do you go in
10:51 pm
controlling a society and securing everything? then they have won. again, that is the conversation we used to have in the 1980s when the ira were very active, this idea that you need to carry on with your life ina you need to carry on with your life in a free society otherwise you are handing victory to the terrorists. angela merkel is making that point. sure, i covered the nice attacks, and people were flying in. i said this before. people were flying in the day afterwards to show solidarity, despite the atrocity, and the still palpable fear some people had that something might happen, yet people coming to show solidarity. the idea being that you do not let the terrorists win. 0k, thatis do not let the terrorists win. 0k, that is enough on berlin. we will move that is enough on berlin. we will m ove o nto that is enough on berlin. we will move onto the express. my mps will not be able to block brexit, christopher. —— why mps. is that a correct headline? wishful thinking for the pro mini5ter. there5a may
10:52 pm
wa5 for the pro mini5ter. there5a may was the senior —— with the senior german of all the select committees today who called the liaison committee. a big day for. some of the skills david cameron had, she is developing those, as she developed into the role of premised. what she 5aid into the role of premised. what she said there was, to these mp5 come on thi5 said there was, to these mp5 come on this committee, that they will not be able to block brexit. that is the position at the moment but of course the supreme court, as you alluded to at the gaming, the hearing the case, and if actually they prescribed, ye5, and if actually they prescribed, yes, there could be a vote, and the hou5e yes, there could be a vote, and the house of lords foot. she is having a go nowell 5he house of lords foot. she is having a go nowell she can. was quite interesting this afternoon, though, because theresa may has become sort of mistress of the sex act, trying to let go of as little information about brexit as she possibly can. —— mistress of the sphinx act. that
10:53 pm
phrase, "negotiation is negotiation," a whole new meaningless phrase can play with... what does it mean? nothing. that the end of the session with all these mps the chairman rather ruefully thanked him for an interesting session, and she gave him a rather strange smile to say she was quite proud of herself for making it little interest as she could. david davis, much more forthcoming? he basically says the most word5 without saying anything... laughter you doe5 laughter you does that all the time, but he ha5 you does that all the time, but he has his brief. say nothing! yes, walk the walk, talk the talk, but don't do anything. but he does occasionally let something out, david davis, which... and he is not slapped down by number ten downing st in the same manner as other ministers when he does so. given
10:54 pm
more leeway to test the ground with, i think, perhaps. more leeway to test the ground with, ithink, perhaps. finally onto more leeway to test the ground with, i think, perhaps. finally onto the telegraph. i saw you come into the office tonight with a whole load of shopping bags, clearly prepped for christmas. the story here is chaos in store for online shoppers over earlier christmas deadlines. in store for online shoppers over earlier chri5tma5 deadlinesm in store for online shoppers over earlier christmas deadlines. it is all but the shopping on the internet. of course because of rules about when shops will be open, they cannot be open on christmas day. they are on boxing day but know we all go online in this country, more than most countries, christmas day is now a shopping base, so that is what they are saying. will there be a panic as they try —— is now a shopping day. a classic kind of before it happens story, i think. shopping day. a classic kind of before it happens story, i thinklj think it is cold classic skier panic story. honestly, as if people in the run—up to christmas need to be sent into a panic about getting their shopping done in time —— scare panic
10:55 pm
story. we're all in a total panic already. disk and body lifted by a department store, as our man, literally had never —— i had literally had never —— i had literally never seen a man as discombobulated in a department store as tonight, following over things and so on. have you done all your shopping? the problem is i started such a long time ago there are so many started such a long time ago there are so many mystery packages and i have no idea what is in them so i don't know if i am giving the right things to the right people. i have just bought a lot of stuff! laughter all right, you guys will be back in about 15 minutes, with some more stories behind the headlines. many thanks for that. do not forget all the papers and front pages will be online on the bbc news website where you can read detailed review of all of them. that is there for you seven days a week. fairand you can
10:56 pm
fair and you can see us there as well. thank you to miranda and christopher and to all of you for watching. —— bbc.co.uk/papers, and you can see us watching. —— bbc.co.uk/papers, and you can see us there as well. heavy weather on the way. batten down the hatches. the wind is set to be the feature of the weather in the run—up to christmas. it could be very nasty indeed particularly across the north—west of the british isles. you can see across the atla ntic isles. you can see across the atlantic it is already becoming very active, very turbulent. powerfuljet strea m active, very turbulent. powerfuljet stream pushing the front is now into oui’ stream pushing the front is now into our direction. the first crossing the north—west of the uk through the evening and overnight. the winds are strengthening as well. i think eventually by the end of the night all of us will have seen at least a
10:57 pm
few bits and pieces of rain. behind the weather front, cooler air parking in, but because the winds are strong we parking in, but because the winds are strong we are parking in, but because the winds are strong we are not expecting much frost but it will not be much of that, three degrees in newcastle. then deal across north—western areas, frequent showers around. a bit of sunshine in between as well but i would not be surprised if we get hail and thunder. perhaps some sleep as well. different story in the south. the wind is not quite as strong, at least not yet —— probably some sleet as well. the colder air is here in the north but it will feel colder than 5 degrees because of the winter chill effect. through tomorrow evening, that rain hanging around across the south—east well into the middle of the evening. let's look at thursday. it will start off quite chilly but plenty of sunshine around. very blustery across the north of the uk, certainly in northern ireland, scotland, the north of england, and frequent showers here again. a better day across the bulk of england and wales, in fact probably the best of the week, so enjoy that. temperatures into single figures for most of us and then friday night,

storm barbara arrives, and nasty storm, ported area of low pressure which will send winds into a frenzy. the met office have already issued as and amberwarning the met office have already issued as and amber warning for north—western parts of scotland. here there will be gusts of 90 miles an hour predicted and we are expecting 70 miles an hour throughout northern ireland and into northern england which could prove damaging and disruptive. christmas eve into christmas day, we could have another storm heading in our direction but that is still a bit uncertain. the basic message is if you're travelling throughout the christmas period, be prepared for potential disruption. have that in the back of your mind. this is bbc news. the headlines at 11:00 — german authorities release their only suspect in the berlin truck attack which killed 12 people. a potentially dangerous criminal may be still at large. chancellor, angela merkel,
