of casualisation and exploitation. whoever cashes in onjune 8th, one of the first reports on number ten's desk will be on the new world of work. the government commissions study is likely to call for an overhaul of zero—hours contracts and the status of the self—employed in the gig economy. the new prime minister will be expected to respond, making the rules fit for people who have moved on from mcjobs. kamal ahmed, bbc news. the actor roy barraclough, who's best known for playing the landlord alec gilroy in coronation street, has died at the age of 81. he was also known for his double act with les dawson, playing lancashire housewives cissie and ada. his death comes following a short illness. a surgeon who operated on many of the young victims of the manchester bombing last week has said the injuries he saw were like those sustained in war zones. dr ibrar majid, who works at royal manchester children's hospital, said he was angry that a man who
10:31 pm
claimed to share his muslim faith could have carried out such an attack. dr majid spoke to our correspondent martin bashir. it was the front line in treating the youngest victims and soon welcomed the queen, who offered support and comfort. hopefully it mends quickly. hope 50. the royal manchester children's hospital has won widespread praise for its response to the bomb attack, and leading the team of surgeons that night was dr ibrar majid, the head of trauma and orthopaedic surgery. what we saw was essentially war wounds. war wounds? yes, so the kind of wounds you would see on a battlefield. we were operating from probably about one o'clock in the morning all the way to just before eight o'clock. once they'd stabilised the children, then there was a pecking order of what needed to be done. so the life—saving surgery had to be done before the limb—saving surgery. and were there several children where there
10:32 pm
would be multiple surgeries? yes, and even to this day we're continuing to operate on some children, and some of these children will continue to need surgeries going into next week. had you lost any patients? fortunately, that night in theatre, we didn't lose any patients. he would oversee three operating theatres, managing a team of nurses and consultants. the clinical challenge for dr majid was only compounded by the knowledge that the attacker claimed to be a muslim. i don't understand how somebody who professes to have that same faith has such a discordant view of life. how do you feel about individuals who claim to be muslims and do this kind of thing? i can understand why people are angry — i am angry. i am angry that someone would do this, to children mainly, in our city. after eight hours of nonstop surgery, he finally went home to his family.
10:33 pm
what did you tell your wife when you got home? i think the words i used were, "it was horrific," and i said i needed to rest, and i just went upstairs. i slept for about two hours, i was woken by my son, he'd just come back from nursery, and i can remember giving him the biggest hug i've ever given him. having operated on children all night with life and limb—threatening injuries, i cherished any moment with him more than i ever have. a dark night for the medical community, but the darkness did not overcome them. martin bashir, bbc news, manchester. newsnight is coming up on bbc two. here on bbc one, it's time for the news where you are. hello and welcome to sportsday —
10:34 pm
i'm mike bushell. england flex their batting muscles, to win their opening champions trophy match against bangladesh. andy murray and kyle edmond make it into the third round of the french open. and in cardiff, the all french women's champions league final has gone to penalty, we will have the best of the action shortly. thanks forjoining us.
10:35 pm
let's start with an encouraging day for england's cricketers. they won their opening champions trophy match by eight wickets, despite being set an impressive target of 306 by bangladesh. patrick geary reports. getting into big sporting events is a slow process, bangladesh fans do it artfully, england fans patiently, they are used to waiting. this was england's 19th attempt at winning a one day trophy, and it wasn't an easy start. bangladesh wickets were a stretch. a mark wood stretch at that. bangladesh knocked england out of the last world cup cricket cup.
10:36 pm
they will fill you on the gaps, with chris woakes off injured they were picked off. just as bangladesh's innings was inflaying they gave it too much air. two wickets in two balls and bangladesh finished with a good score that could have been much more. not easy for england, but one day scores are gone through a sort of inflation in recent years so bangladesh 305 might not hold the value it did a few years ago. england will hope. england soon gave bangladesh something to cling to. jason roy scored one. alex hales wouldn't miss out. no need norris, i’u ns we re wouldn't miss out. no need norris, runs were everywhere. he passed 50 and got to within one shot of 100. that was it. hobbling behind himjoe root scoring a sent on a sore leg deserves applause. it deserves two lots which he got later, a co mforta ble lots which he got later, a comfortable end to england's beginning. it's been a day of british
10:37 pm
success at the french open, with both andy murray and kyle edmund booking their places, in the third round in paris. despite battling with injury andy murray is tar feting success in paris, the runner—up last year admits he needs to play himself into form and the world number 50 provided a suitable test. he is anything but conventional but he also packs an impressive punch as he broke serve early on. a resilient murray fought back, yet the first set went the other way after a tie—break. before the word upset could creep round roland garros the world number one was back on form. the opening set long forgotten as murray took the second and third, looking far more assured. but the fourth was anything but. his opponent raced into the lead. the
10:38 pm
drop shop shot his main weapon. once again murray showed why he is the world number one, his own power and determination bringing the game back on to his terms. and victory followed soon after, for murray returning to form, atjust followed soon after, for murray returning to form, at just the followed soon after, for murray returning to form, atjust the right time. and he will be joined time. and he will bejoined in time. and he will be joined in the third round by kyle edmund, the first time the man in blue has made to it that stage in paris, his his victory over the argentine was more comfortable, a straight sets victory for the british number two, the next up for him kevin anderson. kyle edmund will now face the big—hitting south african kevin anderson.. he's through, after beating nick kyrgios. the australian was a set up, but when things didn't go his way his racket took some punishment. looks beyond repair there — well, it is now. as he really let the carefully crafted racket feel the full force of his emotions. meanwhile, there was also frustration and tears in the match betweenjuan martin del potro and nicolas almagro.
10:39 pm
almagro was forced to retire with injury, and was visibily upset on the court. but del potro took a moment to console him. a brilliant display of sportsmanship from a man who knows a thing or two about injuries. del potro will play andy murray, in the next round in a rematch of the 2016 olympic final. the women's top seed left in the tournament, karolina pliskova beat ekaterina alexandrova. pliskova blitzed through the first set. it took herjust 22 minutes to win 6—2, but her russian opponent fought back to level at one set all. so that match going the distance. elsewhere, the third seed, simona halep, beat tatjana maria in straight sets. there were also wins for top ten seeds agnieszka radwa nska, and elina svitolina. now the women's champions league final has been taking place in cardiff this evening, but it's turning into a marathon, and perhaps all the way to penalty as hannah luton reports.
10:40 pm
in the welsh capital an all french affair, two teams divided by rivalry, you nighted by desire for the most sought after silverware, in europe's elite competition, lion are the team to beat but the reigning champions were limited in the first half. rather it was the underdogs who should have been ahead. shirley cruise came closest for psg. against a side of lyon's quality chances must be taken. that was her moment of glory. no goals after 90 minutes and still as the game stretched into extra time, no joy. the most prestigious of prizes would be decided by penalties. and in the end it came down to sudden death in the penalty shoot—out. lyon's goalkeeper scored the winning spot
10:41 pm
kick. they won 7—6 on penalties to retain the champions league, their european champions for a record equalling fourth time. those scenes a few moments ago in ca rd iffful british and irish lions head coach warren gatland says he won't be making the same mistake, as his predecessor, by splitting the teams into midweek and test sides. the squad, arrived in new zealand yesterday, ahead of the start of their tour. gatland says suggestions the schedule is too tough, are overblown, and has been talking about the importance of keeping the squad together for the tests, and midweek matches, unlike graham henry in 2001. iis i is paramount for these guys at the moment. i know the players involved with graham henry in 2001, he lost half the team on day one, you guys over here and ewe guys over there, they were this is a test side and we are making up the moments. it is important these guys feel like they
10:42 pm
are putting themselves in the shop window, that i have a chance to go and prove themselves. that's all from sportsday. coming up in a moment, the papers. from myself and the rest of the team. bye. hello, and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are the former director of communications for the conservative party, giles kenningham, and nigel nelson, political editor at the sunday mirror and sunday people. tomorrow's front pages. good to see you both. the right and
10:43 pm
left in harmony on the paper, that is what i like to see. a coalition, not of chaos i hasten to add. let us look at the front—pages. let us look at the front—pages. the telegraph is looking at those reports of an apparent labour surge ahead of the election — saying its campaign is being boosted by fake, automated social media accounts that pump out positive messages about jeremy corbyn thousands of times a day. the times is talking about the possible coalition possibilities if a hung parliament leads to a minority labour government. while the daily express leads on the prime minister's accusation that mr corbyn falls short on patriotism and the ability to get the best brexit deal. the financial times looks at theresa may's efforts to revive what it calls her "faltering" campaign by focussing once again on the promise of brexit. the guardian focuses on the donald trump's decision to dump the paris accord. to dump the paris accord. and the metro — very sad — reporting that the injured mother of saffie roussos, the youngest child murdered
10:44 pm
by the manchester terror attacker, has woken from her coma, and been told of her daughter's death. we are going to start with the breaking news from this evening, giles, front—page of the guardian, ona giles, front—page of the guardian, on a lot of the other front—pages as well. well. accuse at us as trump rejects accord. he has pulled out of the deal signed in 2015. this is no surprise. he stood on this in his ma nifesto surprise. he stood on this in his manifesto so for once, in one element, it is expected, and i am sure the oil and gas companies are rubbing their hands. however, it does reinforce in view of trump and america retreat from the world stage, following a protectionist policy and you have to wonder what it does for inward investment in the country. you are not seeing a strategy? terms of what is going on. it reinforces this view it is lurch from one chaos to another. really
10:45 pm
interesting, giles mentioned there, nigel, all companies running their hands, they are not. head of exxonmobil said it was a mistake. the companies don like this at all. that is a positive of the whole thing. trump is saying the deal is a job killer. yes. and, bear in mind the constituency that trump was appealing to, the kind of person in pennsylvania, who looked at his steel work, rusting away, and there would be nojobs there for ten years, that is the kind of person he was talking about and the guardian quotes him as saying i was elected to represent the citizens of pittsburgh not paris which is the point. this doesn't come as a surprise, because it is as giles said a manifesto commitment. it is a tragedy, and unless some kind of alternative deal can be negotiated, then we he will be in
