series and drawing in bangladesh, and bangladesh are a good side, hopefully this t20 will be our last to finish but from a personal budget has been all right, have certain good performances and some poor ones. there are always errors you can work on. i have been working on my batting and bowling all the time. ifi my batting and bowling all the time. if i keep trying to improve and become a better batter so i can play better in test cricket. last year's great scottish run wasn't quite as great as the organisers hoped. some competitors said they thought the half marathon course was shorter than it should be. the route was re—measured over the weekend. and it turns out they were right. john mcmanus takes up the story. last—minute checks before four officials get on the bikes to measure the length of the great
6:47 pm
scottish run. the early hours of sunday morning, the best time to do it with a police escort. they cycled the whole route. i caught up with them in glasgow. many of the runners who took part in last's event said they thought the course was shorter than use. many runners carry their own personal mobile devices which measured the distance they are running. thousands of people took pa rt running. thousands of people took part in last year's half marathon. today's news that the course was too short by nearly 150 metres or 164 yards, means all the times are now invalid. the company behind the run says it made two mistakes. the course had to change in 2016 due to some scheduled waterworks across the city. we found this out relatively late and had to make changes to what is that what was the traditional route. we had worked on those plans and measurement was taken but u nfortu nately and measurement was taken but unfortunately this measurement was incorrect. it was taken on live

roads rather than when the roads we re roads rather than when the roads were closed. and competitors mistakenly followed an incorrect route from part of bella huston park. last year's winner, who thought he had also set a new course record, was unavailable for comment. but these runners exercising near the finishing line at glasgow green, we re the finishing line at glasgow green, were not surprised. i think a lot of people were suspicious for a while, anyway. some of my friends have been wondering whether anything would come of it. there are times worse much faster than what they expected. you will not be disappointed to find you had smashed your personal best and it is taken away fear. participants will not be offered a refu nd participants will not be offered a refund but they are being guaranteed a chance of glory in this year's race. that's all from sportsday. there'll be more sport here on bbc news throughout the evening. this is bbc news. theresa may has
6:49 pm
beenin this is bbc news. theresa may has been in dublin for talks with the taoiseach, enda kenny a mock what brexit might mean for the border with northern ireland was top of the agenda. chris buckler is in dublin for us now. both leaders clear they do not want to return to the bad old days of a hard border? yes, that phrase has been used time and time again, they do not want to return to the borders of the past. that was used again today. but practically, what they want to do is try to ensure there is a free flow of trade, these are the words of the prime ministers themselves. also what has been known as the common travel area, and assume is a border as possible. the issue of brexit is not just down to as possible. the issue of brexit is notjust down to the uk and irish government, it comes down to what the european union things as well.
6:50 pm
however, whenever you listen to the prime ministers in the news conference you get a sense the uk is keen to have a friend at that table when it is being discussed by the countries who will remain behind inside the eu. there is also assured concerned about what is happening north of the irish border, political instability there, that is something they also have to address. the third thing being discussed here is probably no surprise because it is being discussed in most capitals and the shadow of president trump looms large in london and dublin. they we re large in london and dublin. they were both talking about how they do not share some of his approaches, i think was the phrase used, i do not agree with his policy, said the irish prime minister, but that is something he says he will raise with him. but for both of them, there is this big question, first of all, theresa may has the issue of the official state visit, the invitation to donald trump to come to the uk.
6:51 pm
she said the invitation stands. vember enda kenny mother is the question of his invitation to the white house on st patrick's day. —— then for enda kenny, there is. there are some here saying, should he still make that visit? he says he will, but it is important to keep up those strong relationships between ireland and america. chris, many thanks. downing street says a plan to state visit to britain by president trump will go ahead despite calls for a cancellation. more than 1.3 million people have signed a petition saying the invitation should be withdrawn because of the white house's controversial travel ban affecting seven mainly muslim countries. tonight there have been protests in at least 30 towns and cities across the uk against the visit. in glasgow, glasgow, chanting refugees are welcome here. in cambridge, hundreds of people gathered in the

6:53 pm
people deciding to take to the streets. whitehall is completely rammed with people. in fact, traffic has not been able to get through. we cannot actually turn the camera around because there are so many people here. i canjust see the around because there are so many people here. i can just see the tops ofa number of people here. i can just see the tops of a number of red london buses that have had to stop because they cannot get through. chance have been rippling through the crowd for the last hour or so. shame on theresa may has been one of them. deep frustration for many people on the response of theresa may, they do not think it has been good enough in terms of a robust response to this ban. but amongst the crowd, to americans. let me doctorjane and katie. jane, you're from nebraska. —— let me talk to. how are you feeling? i am feeling ashamed for one of the first times in my life to say that i am american. i work at a london hospital and my patients,
6:54 pm
daily, say, where are you from? because they hear the accent. i hesitate now where i did not —— it did not use to bother me at all. we have a lot of diversity in the city, it is one of the things i love about being here and why i stay. what is your message to theresa may this evening? yeah... you know, just no! we need to support the diversity that london has and that england has, and we cannot be siding with bullying people out of the country. has advised argue that donald trump has done this? he isjust has advised argue that donald trump has done this? he is just fulfilling his campaign pledges. has done this? he is just fulfilling his campaign pledgeslj has done this? he is just fulfilling his campaign pledges. i was shocked andl his campaign pledges. i was shocked and i was even his campaign pledges. i was shocked and i was even more his campaign pledges. i was shocked and i was even more shocked that it took the aclu so long to stand up
6:55 pm
and say something. how surprised are you that so many people have taken to the streets, katie? i am not surprised. i have a lot of young friends, i went to university here. i think it is great that people are standing up and speaking out so we do not let history repeat itself. what do you think you can actually achieve by coming out on the streets ? achieve by coming out on the streets? just showing people that we are supporting them and standing with them, that we are united against this hatefulness. showing the leaders we are here and we are going to fight back, we are not going to fight back, we are not going to fight back, we are not going to let this happen. what would it mean to you if that state visit was cancelled ? it mean to you if that state visit was cancelled? i think it would be actually a very great thing. it would show that britain is opposing trump and his hateful rhetoric. ——
6:56 pm
trump. thank you for sharing your views. thousands of people here, a rally is due to continue for a while, it is not due to finish until around eight o'clock. a number of speakers will address the crowd but it will probably be impossible from here to listen to what they are saying. sian grzeszczyk, in whitehall. let's ta ke let's take a look of the weather, with darren. a change in the weather over the week ahead, something much more changeable but milder than we have seen. a lot of cloud today, certainly the mildest weather in the south and south west. but different scenes early on in the highlands. there was some sunshine. and for a while some parts of england. you can see the extent of the cloud and the difference in temperatures, cold across scotland, milder towards the
