breakthrough. murray found the break in the second set to put him in control, and like many of the 25 gone before him, melzer soon found that his efforts were in vain. british number two kyle edmund is through to a first atp tour quarterfinal of 2017, after his opponent retired in the second round of their match, at the brisbane international. edmund, ranked 45 in the world, beat luca pwee, after the frenchman retired with blisters, when trailing 6—3, 3—1. edmund will take on us open champion stan wawrinka in the last eight. great britain suffered another 3—0 defeat in the hopman cup in perth. they lost to france after heather watson was beaten by kristina mladenovic and dan evans lost to richard gasquet. the pair also lost the doubles. britain have already lost to switzerland, so their last group match against germany is now meaningless. leicester and england centre manu tuilagi will be out
for the rest of the season, as a result of the knee injury he suffered during his club's premiership defeat by saracens at the weekend. tuilagi's latest setback comes after eddie jones confirmed that he would have been part of his international plans. it was frustrating for him. he's a good kid. he really wants to play well for leicester and for england, and he was just coming back into some form. you could see he's getting his power back a bit, so it is enormously frustrating to him. for us, he's a player we would love to have in the camp, but if he is not there, we just get on with it. paralympic champion kadeena cox has defended her decision to take part in the channel a programme thejump, describing her life as a "ticking time bomb". uk sport today suspended her funding while she takes part in the show — in which participants learn to ski jump — and both cycling and athletics medical teams have
advised her against it. on social media this evening, cox said her diagnosis of ms had changed her outlook on life, and she's going to enjoy skiing. that's all from sportsday. coming up ina that's all from sportsday. coming up in a moment, the papers. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are james rampton, features writer at the independent, and buzzfeed reporter aisha gani. tomorrow's front pages, starting with: the metro claims that private companies are being employed to block nhs patients being referred to hospital by their gps. theresa may is set to reveal her vision for brexit in a speech later this month, says the daily telegraph.
millions of people living near busy roads are at risk of dementia, according to the daily express. and that story is also the lead in the daily mail. the times carries claims that senior retired civil servants and diplomats are concerned about the government's lack of direction over brexit. the sun has a story of a syrian refugee allowed into the uk despite being discovered with a fake passport. 0k, ok, so let's start with the times. revolt over theresa may's leadership. a former ambassador to russia gets the brusselsjob. all of this the fallout after that shock resignation. yes, the story hasjust rumbled on today. it seems there is some tension growing between top
mandarins and former civil servants, and ministers. there is public speaking out about the resignation, and the times leads with former civil servants talking about how ivan rogers was extremely competent at his role. that is in contrast to hearing voices such as iain duncan smith this morning, and he's been speaking to media saying that this wasn't a civil servant to be trusted. it talks about some of these tensions. what does it say about the politicisation of this role. it seems like a poisoned chalice. that's what we are seeing here, the of conflict between the civil service and the political class, who want to see brexit followed through, and the idea that the political class believes that
the political class believes that the civil service shouldn't be politicised, but should be batting for the cause when it comes to brexit. that's what is so bizarre about this. surely the whole point of the civil service is that it is neutral, and applies objected advice to people without having fear or favour. the idea from some of the brexiteers that they cannot be trusted... peter lilley said it was soui’ grapes from trusted... peter lilley said it was sour grapes from sir ivan. hisjob is to tell ministers what is happening in brussels. just because they don't like the sound of it doesn't mean he should lose hisjob. it smacks of one of the most appalling things in our campaign, when michael gove said, "we have had enough of experts". once we get rid of experts, we are in the hands of
people like nigel farage!|j of experts, we are in the hands of people like nigel farage! i don't wa nt to people like nigel farage! i don't want to go down that road! the front page of the daily telegraph. may sets out a vision for brexit. by all accounts, she didn't tell the queen what her vision is. now the front page of the telegraph says we are all going to know. what is the vision? to remove any suggestion of muddled thinking, one of sir ivan's charges today, she says that her red line will be, if we are not allowed control of our borders again, we will not play any part in the single market. that will be the line over which she will not cross. to me, this smacks of desperation. why has this smacks of desperation. why has this come out tonight when the queen allegedly was not told anything? why
does there still seem to be such a model between certain ministers. liam fox has apparently been sidelined. david davis says he doesn't know what hard brexit means. it is so confusing, it's as though they don't know what they are doing. for people who tap into buzzfeed, for the people you cater to, i'm assuming slightly younger members of the public, how do you explain the whole brexit phenomenon, and explain this story to them. you have a traditional paper here, the daily telegraph, putting its case. it's remarkable, because our readers are really interested in reading stories on brexit. especially when we are talking about the impact on the economy. people genuinely want to
know. you mention post—truth. i think, at a time when perhaps you do have polarised media, this is also a time when people are searching for the truth, and people are turning to different outlets. theyjust the truth, and people are turning to different outlets. they just want to know different perspectives, and at the end of the day, they want to know what's going on. do tell us! what is interesting with this story in the telegraph is that it mentions the three brexiteers, david davis, borisjohnson the three brexiteers, david davis, boris johnson and liam the three brexiteers, david davis, borisjohnson and liam fox having an important role. perhaps after the supreme court ruling, so we will see what happens. what is going to be in this speech? it says here that it is a vision for the future. what is that? what is brexit? we know that vision. onto the metro. national
health scandal. bosses making millions are not treating patients. a remarkable headline. according to the metro, at least £57 million has been spent on schemes so that co nsulta nts been spent on schemes so that consultants are referring patients away from their family doctors, so the money isn't being spent on treating patients. i guess the money is being spent on more bureaucracy, and this is quite fascinating. where is this money coming from? a lot of people watching will be concerned. people being on waiting lists not being able to get their operations in time, when you are seeing this amount of money going elsewhere. in time, when you are seeing this amount of money going elsewherem is quite weird. if patients who should be going into the nhs are not
being allowed to be referred into the nhs by their doctors, that saves money. is it a good thing? no, because it is of the gps who decide. it is outside consultants. it is costing 57 million a year to pay for these very expensive consultants, and there is evidence that only 14% of nhs commissioning groups could save any money from this. at a time where patients are being denied very expensive cancer drugs, to be spending 57 million on a scheme that isn't proven to be is saving money isn't proven to be is saving money isa isn't proven to be is saving money is a scandal, and i think that the headline is right. onto the front page of the express. apparently, busy roads can cause dementia. this is based on a study from canada. it is based on a study from canada. it is quite a sad story. 200,000 people
in the uk suffer from dementia, is quite a sad story. 200,000 people in the uk sufferfrom dementia, and it is saying that people living near busy roads are more likely to get dementia. especially someone who's been living in the capital for their whole life, this is really worrying. we have heard lots of stories talking about the impact of pollution on asthma, but i haven't really seen anything on this before. so is it pollution or noise affecting the brain? it is the particles from pollution getting into the system, and i guess this affects the bodily functions, and this is what causes dementia. ijust think it's really devastating. what can you do about this? there's a lot of people living in busy cities. but calm down, because it might not be true. a story in the express that might not be true! what is the
veracity of the study? it is a big study. they have studied 7 million people, and they have concluded in ontario that you are 12% more likely to suffer from dementia later in life if you live near a busy road. that is very shocking. going back to the nhs, we have a huge crisis with ca re the nhs, we have a huge crisis with care for older people, many of whom, 200,000 already a year, being diagnosed with dementia. if that is going to get worse, it is incumbent oi'i going to get worse, it is incumbent on the nhs to make sure it is spending its money well. here we have a story about all migrants should learn english. we are going to skip over that. buzzfeed. trump
trusts wikileaks astonish over us intelligence agencies. mr assange has said that it was not wikileaks that gave the information about the democratic committee in america. mr trump is taking his information over that from him rather than us intelligence agencies. this is an astonishing story. julian assange comes out and says, russia is not my sources. and then donald trump is tweeting away, saying... it is strange that the intelligence briefing has been delayed, and he has been quoting mr assange heavily today. ok, taking julian assange's perspective over intelligence experts... it is the first time you have an incoming us president
quoting julian assange. giving that he is public enemy number one for eve ryo ne he is public enemy number one for everyone in the intelligence community, and accused of sexual assaults, hiding in the ecuadorian embassy... the decision by the president—elect to back him against his own intelligence services seems bizarre. off air, we were talking about the threat of the trump presidency, and this absolutely pinpoints its me. he is a man who speaks before he thinks, and he is saying, julian assange, and man accused of sexual assault who has hidden out in an embassy for several years, who is the most wanted man by the knows more than all of the highly paid 12 intelligence agencies in the us is absolutely nuts. it does fit in with the idea of a man who shoots from the hip all the
time. mike pence, the us vice president elect had a very polite message, and trump went ballistic. vanity fair produced a critical review of one of his restaurants, and he said, vanity fair must close! do you see donald trump calling off the department ofjustice on the house of mr assange? we will see, but in the media we take a lot of his tweets literally. on face value. a lot of people don't take it as seriously. do you think it is an imposter? no, but we will see what happens. before obama was president, he was not tweeting as much, so this is crazy. thank you both so much for the king at some of the stories behind the headlines. don't forget all the front pages are online on the bbc news website where you can read a detailed review
of the papers. it's all there for you — seven days a week at bbc.co.uk/papers. and you can see us there too, with each night's edition of the papers being posted on the page shortly after we've finished. cold and frosty for many through the night. but during the day today it was a cold one across much of north—eastern scotland, particularly because of a strong wind. temperatures peaked at around 5 degrees but add on the wind and it felt like —2. bitterly cold here. a lot of clouds filtering down. that is the dividing line between milder cloudier conditions to the south—west but colder, clearer air up to the far north. the cold air will push the mild air back out to the atlantic overnight. and it will stay there until friday when it is set to return. it will be a short sharp shock, this cold snap, but a widespread hard frost is likely first thing
in the morning. a few showers running down the lincolnshire and east anglian coast so ice could be an issue but generally the talking point will be the feel of things first thing. in towns and city centres, temperatures just below freezing and in rural parts, down to —7 or —8 degrees. little more in the way of cloud, still the remnants of that front into the south—west, so here, not too bad. elsewhere, sparkling blue sky and sunshine despite a hard frost. for many through northern ireland it will be not quite as cold but i suspect there will be more cloud, plenty of sunshine through scotland. wind is not quite as strong so the risk of showers should ease through the day. perhaps just a scattering across east anglia first thing. then they will ease. a decent day in terms of dry, sunny weather in the offing but temperatures will struggle, by the end middle of the afternoon we will be looking at best at a few degrees above freezing at best. a southerly wind brings more cloud, more of a breeze.
seven or 8 degrees out of the west. this weather front pushing in from the atlantic. the wind swinging round to a south—westerly. milderfrom friday but there will be some rain. some will be heavy on the west facing coasts. as it pushes further eased it may weaken substantially but look at the feel of things, 7—11 degres, noticeably milder. that weather front will clear away into the weekend allowing high pressure to drift back, influencing the story across the uk. for the weekend, on the whole dry and feeling milder, any rain will be light and drizzly. this is bbc news. i'm clive myrie. the headlines at 11:00. sir tim barrow sir — a former ambassador to russia — becomes the uk's new top civil servant at the eu, where he's expected to play a major role in negotiating brexit. a vigil‘s held on the m62 slip road where a 28—year—old man was shot dead by police, as his father speaks out for the first time. how can you kill someone like this
ata time how can you kill someone like this at a time like this without giving him a chance to get out or anything? a bullet through the windscreen and that's it? and coming up on newsnight, we'll be looking at what's in store for france — our nearest neighbour and closest rival. the presidential election there could end up as a contest between the far right and a thatcherite — making for interesting times.
