4:01 pm
in the general election campaign — the conservative and labour leaders clash over police numbers and who's best placed to protect the country the uk terror threat level remains at "severe" — but additional security measures are being put in place, including on central london bridges. i'm simon mccoy, in other stories this afternoon: the first funeral for a victim of the manchester bombing , 14—year—old eilidh macleod is laid to rest on the scottish island of barra. high emotions — and a tv audience peaking at 14.5 million — for the benefit concert staged by ariana grande less than two weeks after the manchester attack. good afternoon from london bridge —
4:02 pm
where a vigil will be held tonight in honour of the victims of the attack here on saturday. willian as the police cordon marking offa willian as the police cordon marking off a large area of this part of london, in light of the terrorist attack. seven people killed, 48 injured. the investigation continues. raids are taking place in various boroughs to the east of the capital. our correspondent richard galpin has the latest. this is borough market in the midst of the attack. it's being filmed by florin morariu, who's from romania. but instead of running to safety,
4:03 pm
he attacks the three men stabbing people in front of him. translation: i really thought i was in danger so i threw a bread crate at one of the attackers. i saw he was going to dodge it so i hit him on the head with another crate. he also sheltered 20 people in the bakery where he works. they and many others describing him as a hero. but already seven people were dead and more than 20 critically injured. 30—year—old christine archibald from canada is the first of those killed to have been named. she left canada to be with herfiance and died in his arms on london bridge on saturday night. the police are working hard to establish the identity of all of those who were tragically killed or injured in the event on saturday night, but it is now clear that sadly victims came from a number of nationalities.
4:04 pm
this was an attack on london and the united kingdom but it was also an attack on the free world. this morning counterterrorism police carried out more raids in north—east london, targeting two properties, as the hunt for any accomplices of the attackers continues. around about 4:10 this morning i heard a massive loud explosion, gunshots, about 20 gunshots going off across the road at an mot car tyre place across the road from us. loads of unmarked police. the police say they already know the identity of the three attackers. but while so—called islamic state claims it was behind the attack, the police doubt the militant group was directly involved. all the recent attacks, i think, have a primarily domestic centre of gravity. in the five we have foiled and these
4:05 pm
three recent attacks, in some of them there are undoubtedly international dimensions. we will always be looking to see if anything has been directed from overseas but i would say the majority of the threat we are facing at the moment doesn't appear to be directed from overseas. in the last hour, the mayor of london has condemned what he described as the poisonous ideology of the men who carried out the attack. the acts of these three men on saturday night was cowardly, was evil, and i'm angry and furious that these three men are seeking to justify their actions by using the faith that i belong to, to justify their actions. the ideology they follow is perverse and is poisonous, and it has no place in islam. this was the third attack injust three months.
4:06 pm
two of them on bridges, where security is now being increased. and the threat level remains at severe, meaning yet another attack is highly likely. richard galpin, bbc news. the first victim of the attack to be named is 30—year—old canadian national christine archibald. she was living in the netherlands with her fiance and had travelled to london with him for the weekend. a french citizen was also killed, and four others seriously hurt. four australians are also known to have been caught up in the attack. all of this is a reminder of how mix and diverse city london is, and how attractive it is to terrorists. lots of police officers were caught up as
4:07 pm
well. one british transport police officer and five metropolitan officers were also wounded. an off—duty officer was hurt, when he ran towards the attacker. the collea g u es he ran towards the attacker. the colleagues of him say it was an instinct. daniela relph reports. to herfamily, she was chrissie, a person who had room in their heart for everyone, they said. a person who believed everyone should be valued and respected. christine had moved to europe from canada to be with her boyfriend, tyler. on saturday night she died in tyler's arms. they had been walking over london bridge as the attack began. the van hit 30—year—old christine. her boyfriend's family say he tried desperately to keep her alive and paramedics were on the scene very quickly, but there was nothing they could do to save her. in a statement her family said she wouldn't have understood the callous cruelty of her death. they also made this plea... christine archibald had
4:08 pm
worked at a homeless shelter back in canada. she had studied social work at university in calgary, where she was remembered as a shy and talented student. the area of social work she chose to work in is one of the most challenging areas and required substantial commitment, substantial compassion, and she was able to do that really successfully. she would be somebody we would be proud to have called a social work colleague. australian candice hedge was stabbed in the neck on saturday night. she had been trying to hide from the attackers in borough market. her family believe she is actually one of the lucky ones. i was really scared, yeah, really, really scared. we eventually got onto the hospital. they spoke to me and said she had gone to surgery. she had a knife wound in her neck. across the london hospitals,
4:09 pm
the injured are still being treated. at king's college hospital, seven people remain critically ill. all the patients are being cared for by intensive care and surgical teams, who are doing an excellentjob. a number of patients remain in critical care, where they receive good treatment, and i expect them to remain there for a number of days or weeks to come. in the coming hours and days, the names of the other six killed will be made public, as will the anguish and pain of their family and friends. daniela relph, bbc news. our home affairs correspondent daniel sandford is at new scotland yard in central london. we have been talking about the raids in east london. what more do we know about the three men who died, he was
4:10 pm
shot on saturday night? those raids seem to have slowed in pace now. we had a lot of intense police work yesterday, and also two raids overnight. we are not seeing at the moment an expanding number of raids, which may give you an idea that police feel they have got to a certain limit of what they can do in terms of close associates of these men. the police are still asking the media not to name the three main suspects, the 3—member shot dead on the night of the attack. —— three men they shop. but we can give some clues. 0ne men they shop. but we can give some clues. one is a 27—year—old pakistani man, married with young children, living in a flat in barking. he is someone the media now know a lot about, but at this stage we are sticking to the police's
4:11 pm
request not to name him. we also know that one of the other man was a moroccan, who was also living in the same area, the barking area of london, married to a white woman, a 38—year—old white woman. she also seems to have been arrested, it wasn't clear if they were still together but she seems to be in custody at the moment. there are now a lot of details out there that the police are still asking that their names should not be laid public until the police themselves do that. we think that had happened to day, that the police will say who they think the pop three men were that carried out this attack. but the police are currently asking us not to do that. what happens next in the investigation? traditionally, these counterterrorism investigations are incredibly detailed. so although the police seem to have a good idea of
4:12 pm
who carried it out, at this stage haven't found much wider circle of people involved, there is an enormous amount of forensic work to be done. still a vast area of the crime scene is closed off, a lot of evidence being collected physically and photographing of the scene, and and photographing of the scene, and an enormous amount of cctv evidence to be collected as well, from all the various locations along the crime scene and around the locations where the men there. there is the issue of tracking down the van, how it and when it was hired and the weapons used. then there is a new aspect of all these counterterrorism investigations, the digital aspect. looking through the men's mobile phones and tablets, and computers. already, what from what cressida dick said this morning, there is a lot of computer evidence for them to look through. it may be that there
4:13 pm
is no trial in this case, that these three men did it on their own, they'll all dead, there will be, of course, in quest for the seven people who died and three men who are believed to have killed them. for that, there will need to be an enormous amount of evidence and critically, lessons going forward, the police will want to know absolutely everything about what happened and how it was done. daniel, thank you for being there at scotla nd daniel, thank you for being there at scotland yard for us. let's get an update on those who we re let's get an update on those who were injured. simon jones let's get an update on those who were injured. simonjones is at kings college hospital. we've had an update from nhs in england, 36 people injured are still being treated in five hospitals in the capital. of those, 18 are in a critical condition and at this particular hospital, seven are
4:14 pm
receiving critical care. doctors say it is likely to remain that way for several days or even weeks. the injuries they are dealing with include stab wounds to the face, to the neck and also the torso. they are also treating people who were hit by the van driven by the attackers. for the hospital here, they entered very quickly on news of they entered very quickly on news of the attack, the emergency protocol, many the attack, the emergency protocol, ma ny staff the attack, the emergency protocol, many staff called in and some having to deal with horrific scenes at the hospital. the man in charge of the emergency department here told me despite the terrible attack, he feels they responded well. we train very hard for incidents such as this and we have also, unfortunately, been involved recently in the westminster bridge attack as well. but the training of our staff really pays testament to the level of care that was delivered on saturday night, that everyone was able to slip into major incident mode and deliver top—quality care as we would do on any normal day of the week without a major incident been declared. we had large numbers of junior and senior medical
4:15 pm
and nursing staff attending. large numbers of consultants attending from home. we were very, very well resourced. we mustn't forget the role that people like our porters and chaplaincy services played as well, who all attended and were there during the night. the doctor told me that you turn up for your shift and do yourjob. it's only really when you get home at the end of the day and think about what's happened is that you realise the true horror of it. the doctor told me he found it depressing that they are increasingly dealing with incidents like this, for example he was called in and at this hospital bed with the aftermath of the westminster attack. we have been hearing how staff went beyond the call of duty. 0ne clinician at a live by hospital cycled home on saturday evening and saw a huge number of police officers and also ambulances heading towards london bridge, not knowing exactly what was
4:16 pm
going on, he simply turned around and cycled back to hospital and became part of the team that started treating the injured. the husband not to praise for services, the ambulances they were heading into a dangerous situation, when many people bother to instinct do the opposite. that was from one of a number of hospitals dealing with the injured at the attack here at london bridge on saturday night. more from here in central london to come. for now, i will hand you back to the studio. 0ur headlines atjust after 4:15pm. police say they know the identities of the three men involved in the attack as more properties in east london are raided. this morning.
4:17 pm
30—year—old christine archibald, a canadian, is the first victim to the the name. people are still being treated in hospital, 18 in a critical condition. in sport, andy murray is through to the french open quarterfinals. he beat his russian opponent in straight sets. even hazzard will have surgery on his ankle today and faces a battle to be fit in time for the premier league season. he was injured on international duty. bangladesh are struggling against australia in their champions trophy match against australia. more on their stories at about 4:30pm. theresa may has accused jeremy corbyn of "an abdication of leadership" over brexit as she said the labour leader was not fit to negotiate a good dealfor britain. jeremy corbyn is also on the
4:18 pm
campaign trail. 0ur chief political correspondent, vicki young is in westminster. the prime minister is facing questions both are at a time of the minister and home secretary over please cut. the fact that we have had to terrorist attacks during this election campaign completely unprecedented, has meant the issue of security and policing is in the forefront of everybody‘s mind. in some ways, both party leaders have a record to defend. for corbyn, it's what she said in the past, fall may it is what she has said as home secretary. she was keen to move the subject to brexit, the negotiations, who is the best person to lead the country through the negotiations, that it was question time and time again about police numbers, cuts to police numbers, over the past few yea rs. i have answered the question about policing but i'm happy to repeat what we have been doing in policing,
4:19 pm
which is being protecting counterterrorism policing, providing funding foran counterterrorism policing, providing funding for an uplift in arm policing. in 2015, we have protected police budget. the labour party, jeremy corbyn's front bench, said police budgets could be cut by up to 10%. we said no, we will protect it. it is also about police powers you give. i have been responsible for a numberof give. i have been responsible for a number of pieces of legislation to give extra powers to the police to deal with terrorism. jeremy corbyn's boasted that he has opposed every piece of anti—terrorism legislation is he came into parliament. the last point is important because corbyn is also coming under scrutiny for his record for counter terrorism threats. firstly, for not voting for counterterrorism legislation. may went for that in a personal way. but other policies of the shoot to kill, for example. yesterday, jeremy
4:20 pm
corbyn made a speech many people saw asa saint, corbyn made a speech many people saw as a saint, a hardening of his position when he said that he would ta ke position when he said that he would take whatever action is —— saw as a change, a hardening of his position. giving full authority for police to use whatever force is necessary. some people see this as a change from what he did earlier. earlier, my colleague asked about things he said two years ago. these are your words, i am not happy with shoot to kill in general, i think it's dangerous and can be counter—productive. that was your view into 2015, what is it now? view has not changed. in a defensive position where the security of individuals is at stake, what happened at westminster and over the weekend, what happened is about saving people's lives. you're backtracking on that? what i back is a police force that is adequately prepared and able to deal with a
4:21 pm
terrorist attack, such as we have on saturday. where we have to take necessary action. this is the election is back on track may only have 72 hours left. we will see an awful lot of campaigning in all corners of the united kingdom. we have got used to this kind of thing, party leaders get into as many places as they possibly can. in many ways, it has been an unusual election campaign because of the atrocities that we have seen in the last three weeks. the fact that the issue of security has come to the fore, even though both are keen to talk about other things, corbyn has usedit talk about other things, corbyn has used it to put out their labour party but for the policy to increase policing by 10,000, their argument is it is notjust about the armed police or protecting the counterterrorism budget because it has a knock—on effect for community policing. what was interesting with theresa may is what she was talking
4:22 pm
about brighton again, and leadership again ina about brighton again, and leadership again in a personal way, attacking —— talking up brexit again. and also mentioning the economy, something that hasn't pretty absent from the conservative argument compared to two years ago. but we are in line straight now, with both sides out and about doing as much as they can in the next few days. as you say that, jeremy corbyn is back on the stump. let's hear from that, jeremy corbyn is back on the stump. let's hearfrom him now. do you know what kuzorra i'm proud of that figure because it shows where our support is and where our support is. we all know the difference between a party that can raise millions for the few phone calls, and the party that can raise money from its members, from its supporters, and from the people who wa nt supporters, and from the people who want something different and better in this country. thank you very much for your help and your support. this
4:23 pm
election is also about the choice people face in this country. five more years of this conservative government, five more years of a conservative government, under health, underfunding education, not investing in industry or infrastructure. what kind of country would we be at the end of that? how many more people would be working for less than living wage? how many more would be an zero hours co ntra cts ? more would be an zero hours contracts? how many more would be homeless, or sleeping rough because they couldn't find anywhere to stay? what kind of society would it be? if you have an economic strategy, as the tories do, which is essentially a free—market economy, tax relief to the big corporations, tax write—offs for the rich, and cuts for the rest. 0r for the rich, and cuts for the rest. or you have our alternative. hold the book up, please. this is the
4:24 pm
book of words. this is the book of words. what we are saying there is something very, very different. it is about our investment in the future, about railways, roads, broadband. it is about high technology, sustainable businesses and industries, for the future. and it is about doing it fairly across the whole country. why is it that there is nearly ten times as much transport investment in london and the south—east as there is the north—east? why is it also bad for the north—west and ease midlands? there has to be fairness across the whole country. said a proposal, the plan that clear it is in the ma nifesto plan that clear it is in the manifesto from john mcdonnell is a national investment bank for the whole country, regionally based, that will invest fairly across the whole country, so that we do get those jobs. whole country, so that we do get thosejobs. and also whole country, so that we do get those jobs. and also support places where you achieve things, like what
4:25 pm
have done in the county council, to confuse communities and areas, and invest in our future and a future job. —— invest in communities. so the wind turbine can continue, so the wind turbine can continue, so the industry can develop in the area. the key is public investment. well done those labour county council is that did so much to bring about art and what it did, what you now need is a labour government behind to bring back the investment we need from the future. but it's about the future of all of us. our children only get one chance. in nursery, primary, and secondary school. there was something quite appalling about the advice from government to our schools is, if you got a government to our schools is, if you gotafunding government to our schools is, if you got a funding crisis, have a collection amongst the parents. pay
4:26 pm
the teaching assistants and the teachers understaffed in the school. what kind of message is that in 21st century britain? i pay my taxes because i want our children educated fairly all across the country. i don't want our children educated by the lottery of where they live and how rich the local community is or how rich the local community is or how poor it is. i want the same chance for every child in every part of the country. no more postcode lottery of education. invest for every child, everywhere in our country. but you know, it is what happens before children get to school that is so important. that is why i want every child to have the chance of a good preschool trance. inshore start centres, in playgroups. so we will be offering a 30 hours' free childcare every week
4:27 pm
for every two to four—year—old to give them the equality of chance from the very beginning. that is very important. in primary schools, we will properly fund those primary schools, as i have that. we will also ensure that all our children are properly fed. they will all get are properly fed. they will all get a free lunch, every day in primary school, all of them having it together. people say this will cost a lot of money. yes, it is expensive. yes, it will cost. i think it's an investment for our future and also the experience of all those children eating together, learning together and growing up together, isn't that what our communities and life is all about? and there is one other thing we are proud of, which isn't in the great scheme of things, that expensive but makes a difference. al children are bright, intelligent, lots of ideas and imagination. they go to school
4:28 pm
to have the creativity unlock. i think all our children to should get a chance and music, art and drama. so there's going to be a pupil arts premium forfor every so there's going to be a pupil arts premium for for every child in every school to learn a musical instrument while they are in school. that is unlocking the potential that is, to me, so very unlocking the potential that is, to me, so very important. as they go through their education years, demands and needs change. but what has this government than? cut down or cut altogether, the education maintenance allowance. cut maintenance allowance. cut maintenance grants for students going to university, increased feeding colleges and increase fees in universities now aunty in most cases, £9,000 per year. in universities now aunty in most cases, £9,000 peryear. and in universities now aunty in most cases, £9,000 per year. and what is the result of that? fewer fewer students from working—class
4:29 pm
places forfirmer dream fewer students from working—class places for firmer dream because they can't afford it and can't count the debt. so what are we to do? are we still say, ok, carry on as it is and leave the universities as the preserve of those that can afford it. i don't agree with that. if a young person has an ambition to develop a skill, to become an engineer, to become a teacher, to become anything they want to be come—uppance is up to all of us to provide the college —— to provide the university places and opportunities to all of them. so it's going to be a big call to do it but i'm determined that we do it. that is the end university fees, bring back the eem day and bring back maintenance grants for those who need it —— bring back the education maintenance allowance. because a young person who wants to achieve in life, obviously does
4:30 pm
their best and maybe doesn't make it, feels very frustrated. they couldn't afford to go to college or university or do what they wanted. for what is in life. it's not right. and we will lose out as well. we lose out because we've lost that nurse, that engineer, that teacher. because they never had the chance. i wa nt because they never had the chance. i want a chance for every child, every young person in every part of our country, that is what labour will bring, that sense of doing things together for the good of all of us. iam very together for the good of all of us. i am very proud of that part of our ma nifesto. ronnie talked and often does about health and about what's been achieved. well, if we carry on like this, what kind of national health service would we have? think about how it came about. communities got together, supported the idea that you could in a society have a health
4:31 pm
service free at the point of use as a human right. a labour government after the second world war achieved that. our proudest achievement, the most civilised thing about this country, about our society. and i'm determined that itle be a labour government that will properly fund our nhs so you won't have the idea of the corridor nurse caring for patients because there is nobody else to look after them because there is such a staffing shortage. we won't have the waiting time and waiting lists for elective surgery as well as for a&e departments, but you only deal with that by putting money into the nhs. there is no short cut and privatisation by the way won't bring about a better service, it will bring about a better profit for those that want to ta ke better profit for those that want to take it out of the service. and so, it will be us to do that. but it's also the social care crisis. 0ne million mainly elderly people waiting for social care. they can't
4:32 pm
get t it's not there, it's not available. what happens? somebody in the family has to give up work. 0r give up their life all together to ca re give up their life all together to care for that person, not because they don't love them, they do, not because they don't want to support them, they do, but ijust think it has to be done by the community as a whole. if we don't do that, it's women whose careers are damaged or lost all together because they have to stay at home or go and care for somebody. we're going to put straight into the social care system, £2 billion, but we're also going to set—up a national care service because in this lottery of life, you get cancer as sadly ronnie did, but has recovered and you get fully treated by the nhs, you get cared for and supported and that's absolutely right, but if you have somebody who suffers dementiaks then the family are expected to find the money to support them. surely, cancer and dementia should be equally supported by the principle
4:33 pm
ofa equally supported by the principle of a health service completely for all. i'm not sure everybody in the tory party fully understands this concept. they seem to have great difficulty getting their heads around this one and so i want that. the other thing i'd say on health, i say it everywhere because i believe it very strongly and very passionately. there is a mental health crisis going on in britain. we have people going through appalling stress. we have young people feeling isolated, alone and ina very people feeling isolated, alone and in a very dark and dangerous place and sadly some of them even take their own lives as a result of it. we have to properly fund our mental health services, end the idea you wait six months to get any support or therapy and the other thing we can all do, all of us, is support people going through those crisises and end the stigma surrounding mental health, support those going through a crisis circumstances help them get through it and we are all a lot stronger as a result of it. we'll fund it, but we also need a step change in attitudes in our
4:34 pm
community. and today we were launching our housing manifesto at derwent college, fantastic. labour's new deal on housing and i spoke to a group of building work apprentices there, brick laying, tiling, plumbing, all the skills that are necessary and i told them, study hard, work hard, because we're going to need you to build the houses that a labour government will build. applause we're going to need your skills to conquer the housing crisis in britain. bring stability tot conquer the housing crisis in britain. bring stability to t give an opportunity for young people to buy homes in their own community, give councils the chance to build the houses that are necessary and bring some regulation to the private rented sector and some stability and some security of tenure. we are one of the, we're the fifth richest country in the world. i think we can doa country in the world. i think we can do a lot better in education. a lot better in health and a lot better in
4:35 pm
housing. applause and so our manifesto is comprehensive and it is, i think, something to be very excited about. nobody can in the general election of 2017, there wasn't a choice put before the british people. there is absolutely a choice. you can have a tory government again. you can have a tory government again. cutting services, and all the other things. you can have a tory government again that carries on as it is at the present time or you can have labour mps, like ronnie. applause you can have our fantastic elected representatives like dave who is stepping down sadly asted mp, why are you doing that, dave? laughter and i want to say a big thank you to dave anderson for the fantastic work in parliament and all he has done.
4:36 pm
applause asa minor, applause as a minor, as a union representative, as an mp, great friend and great supporter and dave, your work is not done, i've got plans for you! i thank vera for the work she's doing in police and crime commissioner, the way she stood up with all the other police and crime commissioners to try and save our police services. there has been huge cuts made, 20,000 police officers, lost theirjobs cuts made, 20,000 police officers, lost their jobs across the cuts made, 20,000 police officers, lost theirjobs across the country. that's simply not right. look at how wonderful and brave the police were in manchester and london, dealing with those terrible events. applause we need more police officers, not less, we need more support for them, not less, vera, thank you for all you've done and thank you for what you've done and thank you for what you've done and thank you for what you've done in supporting the needs of women in the community and the way the police must respond to those that are victims of domestic violence and horrible treatment like that. and ian standing behind me... applause no no, there is no competition here!
4:37 pm
ian, thank you. thank you very much, well spotted. ian is jointly co—ordinating our general election campaign and what a fantasticjob he's doing on that. they wrote us off, didn't they? they write us off at their peril. ian and andrew have done an incredible job at their peril. ian and andrew have done an incrediblejob in getting the campaign going and we have got rallies and meetings all over the country. thousands of people coming towards us. i want you to do this for the last few days of the campaign. there will be clip boards somewhere here today. yes, i don't know where they are. that's a card, we need a clipboard. thank you. thank you. there is clip boards everywhere. before you go, sign the clipboard, don't forget to put your phone number and your e—mail there and help us on thursday. help us get ronnie elected and help us win in all those places because we need to win, to get a labour government. but
4:38 pm
we also need to do something else. we've tomorrow which is tuesday, we have got wednesday and thursday is polling day. have a conversation with everybody. what kind of country do you want to live in? what can kind of world do you want to live in? do you want a government that will say to donald trump, you're wrong about climate change? applause dear donald, sorry, you're wrong. think on it. because, if we destroy and pollute our planet, there is no hiding place, however rich you are, you're still going to be affected by tflt there is only one planet and there is only one group of us. we've got to work together to support it and defend it and i'll say that to hill, but it's also about all of us. communities coming together, created the national health service. communities coming together supported and defended the miners during the darkest days of the miners‘ strike. communities came
4:39 pm
together to support those suffering when the steel industry was under threat. we have a government that passes by on the other side. we don‘t pass by on the other side in life. we support each other. wouldn‘t it be nice if we had a government that said actually, everybody in every community, in everybody in every community, in every pa rt everybody in every community, in every part of this country matters? everybody in every part of this country has a right to decent services and decent opportunities. so when you cast your vote on thursday, when you cast your vote think on this — think on this — we have this chance, this chance to change the story. the financial crisis of eight years ago should not be visited upon the poorest and most vulnerable. should not be paid for by frozen wages of public sector workers. should not be paid for by closing libraries and swimming pools, but should be paid for by an
4:40 pm

eoin morgan says it‘s important players can discuss their concerns following saturdays terror attack in london. the icc say swift measures have been taken to ensure the safety of teams competing in the champions trophy and morgan says it‘s right the tournament continues. 0bviously we‘re very lucky in comparison to others, but it has been the talk of the changing room the last couple of days as we sort of proved in leeds that we can try and push things to the one side and put cricket into prospective and try and put a smile on people‘s faces. terrorist activity happens for one and reason and it‘s to obstruct people‘s every day way of life and for us to go about this tournament as if everything is ok, although it‘s not quite, i think, is very important. the tournament continues. elsewhere in england‘s group australia and bangladesh are playing at the oval, knowing defeat would leave either on the brink of elimination. after losing three early wickets, opener tamim iqbal has been the main resistance

with an unbeaten half century. but his partners have continued to get out at the other end. bash desh has been bowled out for 182. —— bangladesh. police say they know the identities of the three men involved in the london attack. 30—year—old christine archibald, a kayedian is the first victim to be named. she was visiting london for the first time. 36 people are still being treated in hospitals across the capital. 18 of them remain in a critical condition. now a look at how the markets in europe have ended
4:47 pm
the trading session. the stock market has been fairly quiet, heading down, but not because of the attacks on saturday. it‘s the whitsun holiday in many european countries and trading is fairly subdued and investors are being fairly cautious ahead of the election on thursday. the big story is the diplomatic and economic isolation imposed on qatar by saudi and other arab states. it has had a small negative effect on some stocks in london which the qatar investment authority has a stake in — the miner glencore, ba rclays bank. the pound is proving to be a lot more resilient of late. it‘s up a touch today despite an unexpectedly weak set of numbers on the service sector — banking, retail, tourism entertainment and so on and unimpressive car sales figures. a lot of that is down to the election with everyone a bit nervous about spending money before they see which way the country votes.
4:48 pm
the oil price started up. this is because of the actions being taken against qatar. the first reaction was that it might restrict oil and gas output, but then the market seemed to change its mind and felt that rising tension might encourage oil producers to produce as much oil as they could so the price rose. qatar‘s isolation is going to have a very damaging effect on its national airline which now cannot fly to saudi arabia or cross its airspace. ethihad airways, dubai‘s emirates airline and budget carriers flydubai and air arabia said they would suspend all flights to and from doha. let‘s get detailed analysis. michael hewson chief market analyst, cmc markets. qatar, how is it going to effect us? politics over here is complicated and politics in the middle east more
4:49 pm
so particularly when you are looking at qatar for investment into various infrastructure projects. if we look at some of the things that qatar invest its money in in the uk, we‘ve got the shard. we also have the 0lympic got the shard. we also have the olympic village, we have significant amounts of london property, they have a 20% stake in heathrow airport, 20% stake in sainsbury‘s, british airways so i think any political problems in qatar are likely obcould well affect future investment and we‘re also a net importer of liquified natural gas which centrica have a contract with until 2023. so politics, which centrica have a contract with until2023. so politics, i which centrica have a contract with until 2023. so politics, i think, the new government, any new government will keep a close eye on. what about the effect on the oil price? we saw the oil price undecided today. what‘s going on in traders minds? yes, i think the thing here jamie, you have got to
4:50 pm
look at qatar‘s output in the scheme of things. 0pec‘s overall output is 30 million barrels a day, qatar‘s output is 730,000, so it won‘t make much of a difference. they are a key exporter of liquified natural gas andi exporter of liquified natural gas and i think that‘s where there will bea and i think that‘s where there will be a significant concern if this particular spat starts to get out of control. isn't there a wider question ofjust general tension in the region which might have a problem with disrupting supply? the tension in the region is nothing new. you look at the various gulf wa rs new. you look at the various gulf wars and the disagreements that saudi arabia had with qa far in 2014 over the muslim brotherhood and the oil price generally tends to get to a level that, you know, what i‘m saying jamie is the gulf states don‘t allow political consideration to get in the way of economic considerations particularly where inward funds are concerned. go what about sterling, the pound? it‘s
4:51 pm
strong even though the economic figures are looking weak? yes, the services data this morning was disappointing, but i think what traders are looking at is the opinion polls and you may find that strange given the fact that yougov has the conservative party only a 1% lead, but that does appear to be a bit ofan lead, but that does appear to be a bit of an out liar and ultimately if you take the poll of polls, we are looking at anywhere between 5% and # ‘x: looking at anywhere between 5% and # %and looking at anywhere between 5% and # % and when you look at economic data, the data we saw last week the economic outlook doesn‘t look that bad. michael, thank you. a last thought about the markets. the isolation qatar by its arab neighbours is perhaps the biggest talking point, but so far the effect is limited. it has weakened oil price. its capacity to inflict damage on the global economy and the uk economy is considerable, but it will take time before the fall out starts to make itself

felt in the markets. that‘s all from me. news on the identity of the second of the victims of saturday‘s night attack in london. the sister of james mcfullen confirms that they believe he died. he was smoking outside a pub in borough before reports of that white van mowing down pedestrians on london bridge. we will have more on that later on. let‘s get a bit more on that concert held in manchester last night. there were high emotions at the benefit concert staged by ariana grande in manchester less than two weeks after the terror attack following her gig in the city.
4:53 pm
graham satchell spent the day with a mother and daughter who were at manchester arena when the suicide bomber struck. not quite two weeks after the attack in manchester, and not quite 24 hours after the latest outrage in london, 50,000 people came to a concert, determined to enjoy themselves. manchester stands together and i think you can see the atmosphere already immediately. it should just be happy. for 13—year—old lucy and her mum, anne—marie, it‘s not that simple. this is a fantastic gesture, that this concert‘s taking place. i still believe it‘s too soon. lucy‘s been having panic attacks through the night. not sleeping and when you think you‘re finally making some progress and moving on, it comes back. what have the last two weeks been like? just stressful. not been happy.
4:54 pm
lucy and anne—marie were at the manchester arena two weeks ago. we filmed with them the day after. i was very terrified and scared. i just don‘t understand why they would... be so horrible to other people. just getting to last night‘s concert after witnessing the horrors of the suicide bomber, an extraordinary achievement. i‘m so proud of lucy for agreeing to come today, but i‘m very nervous. this is a massive step for us today. just before the concert, lucy and her mum released two balloons, their personal way of remembering those who lost their lives two weeks ago. the concert itself saw a remarkable return to manchester
4:55 pm
for ariana grande — compassion, dignity, courage atjust 23. with her, stars from all over the world, likejustin bieber with the clear message of the night. love, love, love, love! crowd: love! there were heart—warming moments, heart—breaking moments. it was a night that saw the very best of manchester. lucy and anne—marie, hugely appreciative. they were all brilliant, absolutely brilliant, every single one of them. but for us, you know, it‘s not going to take away that memory... of last week. are you pleased you came? yes. do you think overall you enjoyed it? yeah. good. i‘m really pleased you‘ve got a smile on yourface, lucy. for the first time in two weeks. that‘s great, isn‘t it? yeah, brilliant, absolutely brilliant.

it‘s a small first step, but an important one — a moment of normality in what has been a deeply traumatic time. the last of last of the summer wine actor peter sallis has died. he was 96 years old. he died peacefully with his family by his side. that news just coming with his family by his side. that newsjust coming in with his family by his side. that news just coming in from his agent, peter sallis has died at the age of 96. all the headlines are coming up at 5pm. it‘s time for a look at the weather. let usjoin louise lear for the forecast. there is rain coming for most of us. i‘m glad you have been paying attention. we have had some sunshine. eastern areas fared best and you can take a look at this picture in deal in kent. rain is on
4:57 pm
its way just as picture in deal in kent. rain is on its wayjust as simon hinted. 0ut picture in deal in kent. rain is on its wayjust as simon hinted. out to the west coast, it has been a different story. in pembrokeshire there has been heavy and persistent rain and some of that starting to gather in strength. the brighter colours denote the intensity of the rainfall so we are starting to see brighter greens and yellows pushing into the south—west and to south wales. so, for the early evening rush hour there will be some rain around accompanied by strong to gale force gusts of winds on exposed coasts in the south—west. take note. tune into your bbc local radio station for travel traffic and travel updates. the rain will sit across much of the country through the night. the heaviest of the rain by the end of the night up into the far north of scotland. behind it, we will start to see a gradual improvement, but it is going to take its time and in fact, first thing in the morning we will have some outbreaks of showery rain across central and eastern england yet to clear away. some sunshine out to the south—west, but it will be really
4:58 pm
windy. gales likely to continue on those exposed coasts and we will see showers develop as well. northern ireland, not a bad start. much of scotla nd ireland, not a bad start. much of scotland and northern england will be grey and wet to begin with and that rain may well linger for much of scotla nd that rain may well linger for much of scotland particularly in the north—east for much of the day. we could see as much as three inches of rainfall before this area of low pressure m oves rainfall before this area of low pressure moves through. so it‘s really going to cling on to the far north—east of scotland and north—east of scotland and north—east england. behind tstays breezy with a scattering of showers for the rest of the day. so that‘s the story into tuesday. in terms of the story into tuesday. in terms of the feel of things underneath the cloud, the wind and the rain obviously those temperatures will be disappointing, 11 to 14 celsius. highest values if we‘re lucky 18 celsius in the south east. that‘s down on where they should be for the time of year. the low finally clears off into the north sea up towards scandinavia which wednesday. we keep a strong wind and it will turn to a north—westerly direction, never a warm source at any time of year. that is going to continue to peg
4:59 pm
back the feel of things up in the north, 11 to 14 celsius the high, but it will be a drier day on wednesdayment more sunshine coming through. perhaps one of the driest of the week. make the most of it if you can. i‘ll be back in laugh an hour. —— halfan hour. —— half an hour. today at 5 — i‘m jane hill, live from borough market where the investigation into saturday‘s attack continues. police say they know the identities of the three men involved. more properties in east london have been raided in the early hours of this morning — a number of people have been detained. christine archibald from canada is the first victim to be named. the 30—year—old was visiting london for the first time with her fiance. 36 people are still being treated in hospitals across the capital — 18 remain in a critical condition. we‘ll have the very latest on
