what we saw on the night was real determination, resilience, teamwork, staff really coming up with what was required to deliver the best care for these patients. i was inundated with messages from the team — can i come in, do you want me in? that came from health care assistants, nurses, allied health professionals, doctors, consultants, offering to come in and support us. it happened locally. we all knew there were chances that we would know people involved in it. this explosion happened in somewhere familiar to all of us. we all have a sense of identity with manchester. and, of course, it feels personal. at no point did i see any member of staff crack. theyjust rose to the challenge and theyjust kept going. i'm very proud of the way they responded. i went home and cried a lot. and you want to hug your nearest and dearest. it was the day after really when feelings settled in.
i just want to focus on the good things that i saw, the good care that i saw, and that for me speaks about the night. remarkable people who did a remarkablejob at remarkable people who did a remarkable job at stepping hill in stockport. let's have a look at the weather. it is warm and sunny out there. many pictures coming in the sunshine. this one from swanage in dorset, unbroken sunshine. not so much in the central midlands and central wales, with some fair weather clouds bubbling up. but the temperatures continue to rise. for the more than half of scotland, in fact, most of scotla nd half of scotland, in fact, most of scotland seem unbroken sunshine, but it wasn't like that earlier, with a bit of low cloud and sea mist around the north—west corner. that has mainly burnt off and you can see
some fair weather cloud developing in the midlands. for this afternoon, it is looking hot and sunny across the board. a warmer day across scotla nd the board. a warmer day across scotland and northern ireland than yesterday and we could see highs in scotla nd yesterday and we could see highs in scotland reaching 28, maybe 29, which is also the case for england and wales. we could see highs around the high 20s celsius for north—west england, the midlands and the north—west corner of london. always cooler in eastern coastal areas, because of an onshore breeze. if it is too hot for you in land, just go to the coast. a lovely end to the day with lots of sunshine. this evening and will be clear, dry, warm and muggy, with the buildings exhorting all of the heat. larger towns and cities will be uncomfortable. into friday, a very warm start and temperatures shooting up warm start and temperatures shooting up through the day. once again, plenty of sunshine. a bit of a breeze in the far south and south—west and maybe one or two showers or
south—west and maybe one or two showers oi’ storms south—west and maybe one or two showers or storms in the far west of northern ireland, and the temperatures up to mid to high 20s celsius. northern scotland, maybe the midlands, could see 30. heading through friday evening and overnight, we begin to see a change. this area of low pressure and this weather front will bring a line of showers and thunderstorms on friday night and into saturday morning into the south and west. that continues to morph —— to move north and east on saturday morning, with torrential downpours and frequent lightning. into the afternoon, confined to northern and eastern parts but, to the south, a fine afternoon, sunshine and quite hot in the south—east. for sunday, we could see some thunder in the south—east again, so some showers or storms. further north and west, a slightly cooler and fresh appeal. we think that's what could happen into bank holiday monday, with the south—east remaining warm and humid, longer spells of rain or some storms. a reminder of our main story this lunchtime.

localised disruption in and around both premises. it is vitally important that we continue those searches and do it very thoroughly. alongside the investigation, we have a team of specially trained family liaison officers working with the families of those who tragically lost their lives in monday's tack. last night the family liaison officers shared with those families the fact that intelligence had been lea ked the fact that intelligence had been leaked and published in new —— in the new york times. it is absolutely understandable distress and upset this the families. they are already suffering as everyone can imagine. the statement was issued last night by an national counterterrorism police network and i do not wish to add anything further to bat at this stage. nor will i be commenting on information sharing arrangements with our international partners will stop it will take several days

confirmed that a suspects remain in custody and that progress is being made in the case. the threat level, as assessed by the independentjoint terrorism analysis centre, will remaina terrorism analysis centre, will remain a critical and the public shouldn't —— or remain vigilant. i was also briefed on operation temperer. around 1000 members of the armed forces are assisting the police, providing important reassurance ahead of a bank holiday weekend of busy events. shortly i will be travelling to a nato summit where i will be working with international colleagues on defeating terrorism. i will make clear to president trump that intelligence that is shared between our law enforcement agencies must remain secure. tomorrow i will be attending the g—7 summit in italy where i will lead a discussion on counterterrorism and on how we will work together to prevent the plotting of terrorist attacks online
and to stop the spread of hateful extremist ideology on social media. i'm very gratefulfor the expressions of support and condolences that the uk has received from international colleagues in recent days. g7 and nato will enable us recent days. g7 and nato will enable us to work closely together as we work to do beat the evil of terrorism. away from our coverage of monmouth —— manchester, some other breaking news. jonathan king has been charged with sex offences. the 72—year—old faces charges of eight in sexual offences, allegedly carried out between 1970 and 1986. ina carried out between 1970 and 1986. in a moment we will have a summary of the business news but first, the headlines. police say the recent
arrests made as part of their investigation into the manchester bombing are significant and claim some bombing are significant and claim some of the items seized in raids are very some of the items seized in raids are very important. the queen has been visiting the royal manchester children's hospital and spoke to some children's hospital and spoke to some of those wounded in the attack. a minute's cellars has been held across the uk in memory of the 22 people who are killed. —— silence. hello there. an update of the business news. the uk economy grew at a slower rate than previously forecast, according to official figures. the office for national statistics revised down economic growth for the first three months of the year to 0.2%, that's down from 0.3%. the ons says household spending also slowed. the uk housing market appears to be moving sideways as latest figures show a drop in borrowing. the council of mortgage lenders has reported a sizeable fall in demand for loans during april an 11% drop of the figure for march.
the number of cars made in the uk fell by almost a fifth in april, with the later easter break blamed for the drop. the society of motor manufacturers and traders said just over 122,000 cars were built in april, that's down 18% compared with the same month last year. we start with the price of oil and whether that goes up or down will be decided later at a meeting of the world's top producers. opec — the organisation of the petroleum exporting countries is led by saudi arabia, with other major producers including iraq, iran and nigeria. they're being joined by non—opec members including russia
and are expected to announce a deal later to try and push prices higher. in december they agreed to cut production by one point eight million barrels per day, about 2% of the global total. those cuts started injanuary and were agreed for six months, so it expires injune. they're now expected to extend the cuts for another nine months — or possibly longer and this shows you why. the price of brent rose sharply in december when those production cuts were agreed. but it's been volatile since then and struggling to hold onto those gains. it now stands around $54 a barrel russia can cope with this level — moscow has based its budget on $40 per barrel. but the biggest opec producer
saudi arabia wants $60 per barrel. but here's the big problem. shale oil production in the us fell sharply when prices hit rock bottom — it just wasn't worth their while to extract it at that price. but now prices are higher they're back — and their technology is improving making it cheaper and more efficient. and it means us oil production has surged by a million barrels a day over the past year and all that is adding to a global oversupply of oil. we can call —— talk to a strategist. what do you think to this outcome? it has come off as a disappointment. the market was expecting more and stop that is the problem with the market's condition. we expect a lot more given the smoke and mirrors of their meetings. many people expect
what is being preannounced will be the tip of the iceberg and for there to be more announcements during the meeting. that was a disappointment today. all they came out with was a nine—month extension of the current deal. that was widely expected and priced in. in addition to that, they didn't really announce any option to extend the programme. it was widely expected a three—month extension is an option. that hasn't been announced yet. there is the formal recognition of the meeting and it will come out later today. why should consumers here in the uk care about the outcome of this meeting in vienna? crude oil prices, it is important and producing energy. the
petrol you put in your car, the energy sources that go into the electricity grid, they come off oil. higher oil prices could lead to higher bills for consumers. the environment is quite beneficial for consumers. today's events of coming off as consumers. today's events of coming offasa consumers. today's events of coming off as a disappointment the traders who look for higher prices and it may be better for the consumer will stop also thinking about medium—term, higher oil prices are needed to allow for the investment in oil resources. with that, without that investment taking place today, we that investment taking place today, we may that investment taking place today, we may see more that investment taking place today, we may see more oil price volatility ina we may see more oil price volatility in a future as we are into shortages in oil supply in a future as we are into shortages in oilsupply in in a future as we are into shortages in oil supply in the future. consumers may be happier today while oil prices are lower but going
forward , oil prices are lower but going forward, there could be more disappointment with volatility in prices. many thanks. that is all the business for this hour. s catch up with the weather forecast now. s catch up with the weather forecast now. “— s catch up with the weather forecast now. —— let us catch up. the weather is soaring at the moment. it will be hot up and down through the uk. you can see those speckles of cloud which has built up through the midlands and towards central wales. for scotland, barely a cloud in the sky. temperatures around 20 —— 28 celsius for the middle part of the afternoon. north—west england and through the
