'is so ' is so intense, 'is so intense, it is its star is so intense, it is actually stripping away the atmosphere of this gas giant. if it is made entirely from gas, it means it will evaporate to nothing. that's one problem. the second problem is its star. it is a type of star which is extremely brilliant but has a brief life, millions, rather than billions of years. as the star ages, it will get bigger. so the planet will probably get entirely engulfed by it. so, the future prospects for this extremely scorching world don't look too fantastic. rebecca, thank you very much. talking about scorching, right now, anything but that, louise lear... 7 scorching, right now, anything but that, louise lear...? yes, summer has abandoned us can we have had some very unusually strong winds gci’oss some very unusually strong winds across england and wales today. so, it is stormy, and on top of that, we have had some heavy rain as well. it is the combination of heavy rain and gales which could cause some travel
1:31 pm
disruption. tune into your local radio station for further updates. the heaviest of the rain so far today has been across central and south—eastern areas. it is raining in scotland at the moment, and it will continue for the rest of the day, and probably through the night as well, particularly heavy across eastern scotland, where we could see as much as 100mm before the system close to. gusts through the irish sea and reaching into the north of england, up towards 50mph possible. still some rain across the midlands, east anglia and the south—east of england. further south and west, showers, some of them quite potent. so, it is a disappointing day, in terms of the feel of things as well. the gales will ease as we go through
1:32 pm
this evening and overnight. but the rain lingers across north—east england and eastern scotland in particular, where it will stay putting heavy. —— pretty heavy. we start off tomorrow still with the potential of that rain hanging on in the far north—east. but the isobars open out and the winds will ease down, before the next system arrives. so, make the most of it tomorrow, if you can figure reasonable day, with some decent sunny spells coming through. the rain, heavy to start with but then slowly confining itself to the northern isles. as we move into thursday, that wet and windy weather will push across the country. thursday will be mainly sunny spells and scattered showers.
1:33 pm
temperatures once again struggling. our main headline... the third london bridge attacker is named. 22—year—old youssef zaghba was an italian national of moroccan descent. he was living in east london. a minute's silence is held across the uk for those who were killed and injured in the attack. a third victim has been named as ki rsty third victim has been named as kirsty boden, a 27—year—old nurse from australia who worked in a hospital near london bridge. good afternoon. i'm jessica creighton with the latest sports news.
1:34 pm
england's cricketers were making good progress against new zealand, in their champions trophy group game in cardiff. a win will take england trough to the last four. they're 210—5 after 37 overs, thanks to half—centuries from alex hales and joe root, but ben stokes has just been caught off the bowling of trent bolt for 48 so england will be looking for a total in excess of 300 if they can keep wickets in hand over the last ten overs or so. arsenal have announced the signing of the bosnia—herzegovina international sead kolasinac from schalke. southampton have asked the premier league to investigate liverpool for an alleged illegal approach for virgil van dijk. jurgen klopp has made the defender his top target this summer. and the manchester city and england women's captain steph houghton has agreed a new long—term contract with the club. she led city to a domestic title sweep last season. the cause of death of former
1:35 pm
newcastle player, cheick tiote, is still being investigated, according to chinese club beijing enterprise. tiote collapsed in training with his new team, and later died in hospital. he was just 30 years old. he enjoyed some of the best years of his career at newcastle, where he played for seven seasons, only moving to china in february. the british and irish lions held a minute's silence at their training session today, ahead of their second tour match in new zealand. the squad fell silent in tribute to the victims of the london terror attack. they take on auckland blues tomorrow but coach rob howley said they wanted to send a message home. quite emotional, and huge condolences from the whole squad, management, players, everyone connected with the british and irish
1:36 pm
lions for those families who lost seven lives. it is devastating, and we send our deepest condolences to all of the families, and out of respect, it was important that we held that one minute's silence. sir ben ainslie's land rover b:a.r team have had a major set—back in the america's cup challenger semi—finals in bermuda. they're 2—0 down to new zealand after damaging a wing in the first race — they couldn't fix it in time so they had to forfeit the second. it's a best—of—nine series — so this was a real blow to the crew. we are absolutely gutted because we thought it was our day today. in three years of sailing, we have had maybe one wing breakage, and you're in the first race of the semifinals, and it goes pop. absolutely gutted, but tomorrow is another day, there isa but tomorrow is another day, there is a fantastic forecast, and we will socket to the kiwis tomorrow. britain's ibf world
1:37 pm
super—middleweight champion james degale is having surgery on his right shoulder tomorrow. he says he's been carrying an injury for over 12 months but he should be able to spar again within ten weeks and he definitely expects to fight again before the end of the year. he's already talking about a possible rematch with george groves. that is all the sport for now. you can find more as always on the bbc sport website. i will have more for you in the next hour. a woman who knew the ex—wife of one of the london bridge attackers, rachid radouane has told the bbc she had come to know him as just a normal man. she says he would sometimes show her pictures on his mobile phone of his hobbies, which included cake making. speaking anonymously she describes her shock at learning that a man who lived in the same block of flats could have killed so many people. her words are spoken by a bbc producer. ijust went in and had a coffee, spoke about our normal day. he showed me pictures of cakes he had baked on his phone.
1:38 pm
i never left and thought, "that was a bit weird," i never got that from him at all. i just thought he was a genuine, normal person who showed me photos of his hobbies that he does, a general man. and then you realised what happened on saturday night. how does that make you feel? it is quite worrying to know that you can live in the same building as somebody and think they are a genuine person, and then find out a few months later that they are harming other people. i never thought he was that kind of person who would do that to anybody. i never heard of him being violent towards anybody, so to find out that he went into london and killed loads of people for no reason, it is quite worrying, really. as we've been reporting, scotland yard is facing questions
1:39 pm
over a decision to downgrade an inquiry into one of the other men as we've been reporting, scotland yard is facing questions behind saturday's attack — khuram butt, a known extremist who'd been monitored in the past by the security services. earlier, my colleaguejane hill spoke to mohammed shafiq, from the muslim anti—extremism charity the ramadhan foundation, who said he argued with khuram butt at a protest in 2013. in may 2013 after the brutal murder of lee rigby, i was at college green, actually doing a bbc news channel interview with other network news channels, when i saw andrew choudhury and khuram butt, who i know now is khuram butt, and i went over to confront him, because i felt this was a man that had spent many years glorifying terrorism, encouraging violence, celebrating the brutal killing of innocent people in our country. and here he was trying to be interviewed on television are trying to celebrate the fact that lee rigby had been killed. as i had a debate, if you like, with him, khuram butt shouted
1:40 pm
an arabic term for traitor. it is what isis uses they don't like you, and then they kill you, or behead you, calling me a government stooge. we know this circle of people have actively been involved in glorifying and celebrating terrorism, yet our authorities, despite the bosom authorities reporting that, haven't done anything. and there are serious question marks one about resources, what the government cut in police numbers, and other issues around police budgets, but more importantly, what information did the intelligence services know? what did they do with that information, and what lessons can be learned? we cannot allow happened on saturday and what happened in manchester happen again in our country. what the security services would say is they did monitor him, but there was no sign that he was actually planning
1:41 pm
an attack. they might have been aware of his attitude, of his opinions, but there was no concrete evidence that he was planning something. what do you say to that? the prime minister said she felt muslims were too tolerant of extremism. i say the authorities are too tolerant of extremism. what do these people have to do before our authorities take action? you know, we have had so many attacks happen in our country going back to the 7th ofjuly, two today. it is not good enough for the authorities to say they weren't plotting a plan. we know they were plotting a plan because they killed so many people on our streets in london. it is not good enough, jane. the government have got to take action, the authorities had to take action, and we in the muslim community have just about as —— has got to step up as well.
1:42 pm
it is not acceptable for us to say it is not a problem for the muslim community, it has nothing to do with us. we have to confront this cancer, the ideology of violence. we have got to expose them and bring them to justice because unless we do that, we will put further citizens at risk of terrorism. at that time when you had that confrontation with him, at that stage, what would you have liked the authorities to do? if he hadn't actually done anything concrete, i mean, are you talking about internment? are you talking about locking someone away? i'm curious what should or could have been done, in your opinion? we already have a law in this country called glorification of terrorism. i would argue that over the years, choudhury and his group have been glorifying terrorism. we don't need new laws, we don't need internment, we need the law to be applied by the police and authorities. if you are glorifying terrorism, if you think what happened on saturday was somehow something to be celebrated, and to be happy about,
1:43 pm
then you are a sick individual, and the law should take its course. i make no apology for that. i make no apology for being consistent against terrorism, because we as muslims have to deal with the aftermath. as parents, and worrying about our children who may be caught up terrorist activities, then we have to deal with the backlash. sorry, i am not going to apologise for my consistent record against terrorism. earlier today, as part of the big breakfast, bbc radio and television joined together to ask voters in manchester about the election issues that concerned them. my colleague louise minchin found that recent events had prompted great interest in the role of the police and security. it is really shocking what has happened in manchester, wringing out happened in manchester, bringing out the security question, doesn't it? everyone has pulled together in manchester, but how will we address the situation, because it can happen anywhere, it can happen in london. how are we going to cover the security issues that we find ourselves with?
1:44 pm
we saw it happen in london again at the weekend as well. ken marsh from the metropolitan police association, there have been incredible stories of bravery from all of our emergency services, police included. my colleagues are heroes. with what took place on saturday evening, straight after what had happened in manchester, it is at the forefront of everyone's minds. we now find situations where we have to run toward some really horrendous situations. and the bravery that was shown by my colleagues is phenomenal. we have to be mindful of the fact it can happen anywhere. all my colleagues in the police have responded the same way. that leads me a question from rob on which is specific about policing, what is it? we'll get chris morris to answer. go for it. the response was fantastic. the metropolitan police were very quick but they did. but if it was anywhere else in the uk, sheffield, newcastle, whole, the response might have been a bit threadbare.
1:45 pm
——hull. this is perhaps due to a lack of police funding. there have been a lot of cuts under theresa may. essentially, what are the parties going to be doing, bringing back more officers on the beat or community policing? i think we have lost a lot of that in the past few years. you have looked at this in reality check. it has become a big debate in the last few days. if you talk about firearm officers, authorised firearm officers, the numbers have gone down in the last six years. ken will know more about this than me, they have gone down from 6,900 to 5,600. the plan of the current government is to increase it back to the 2010 level by next year, but only some of the money from that will come from government. some police forces will have to find the money themselves from existing budgets. as for other parties, labour said it will put another 10,000 police on the streets. a lot of those in community policing. i think you are right.
1:46 pm
one of the issues about the terrorist attacks is they have been in places where there is a concentration of forces, if you like, manchester, london. they say community support officers. if you talk to diane abbott, it is not warranted police officers. part of the general police force, is that correct? they would not be able to carry guns or anything like that. we are not talking about firearms officers. the lib dems say they will put more money into policing, as do the conservatives. everyone is talking about the awareness and more has to be done. but the problem is, there is a gap at the moment between perception and promise. in a moment, a summary of the business news this hour, but first, the headlines on bbc news: the third suspect in the london attacks is named as 22—year—old moroccan—italian , youssef zaghba. an italian police source says he was placed on watch lists shared with the uk. at 11:00, a minute's silence was held across the uk, to remember the victims and all
1:47 pm
those affected by the attack. a nurse from south australia, kirsty boden — who worked at guy's hospital near london bridge — is named among the seven people killed in the attack. rbs has finally reached a £200 million settlement with investors who say they were duped into handing £12 billion to the bank during the financial crisis. the rbs shareholders action group has voted to accept a 82p per share offer. we'll have more on that in a moment. retail sales have fallen and online trading is slowing down. but we are still buying food and drinks. both essential and non essential. these findings from the british retail consortium suggest that rising inflation is contributing to us keeping our wallets and purses closed. separate figures from barclaycard showed consumer spending has fallen to a 10—month low of 2.8% in may with shoppers spending
1:48 pm
on experiences rather than goods. qatar has called for talks to end a major diplomatic row which has seen saudi arabia and several other countries cut links with the gulf state. the foreign minister said all sides should resolve their differences through dialogue. saudi arabia, bahrain and egypt say they're closing their air space to qatari planes. royal bank of scotland has reached an out—of—court deal with a group of shareholders who had accused it of misleading them over a share issue just before the bank had to be rescued by the taxpayer after the financial crisis in 2008. the rbs shareholders action group has voted to accept an 82p per share offer. the amount is below the 200p—230p a share that investors paid during the fundraising in 2008, when they say rbs lied about its financial health. a settlement means that the disgraced former
1:49 pm
chief executive of rbs, fred goodwin, will not appear in court. let's get more from laith khalaf, senior analyst, at hargreaves lansdown who joins us from bristol. thank you for speaking tours. this dispute has been going on for years. a number of shareholders accepted a lesser deal of around 40p per share a while back. what does say decision—making within rbs? it is still 70% owned by the uk taxpayer, it has spent millions of pounds depending itself. —— defending itself. why didn't not do this earlier? this has been going on for yea rs, earlier? this has been going on for years, as you say, dating back to a corporate action in 2008. the current rbs board is basically still dealing with the legacy issues from the financial crisis, and this is obviously one of them. it is not the
1:50 pm
biggest one, but it is still a considerable milestone that they have finally drawn a line under this, because, let's face it, it is a more costly agreement for them, but it is preferable to having the rbs name dragged through the mud in a court hearing for the foreseeable future, the next number of months or possibly years. these shareholders paid between £2, £2 a share, many of them took out loans to buy these shares. why have they now accepted this settlement of 82p?|j shares. why have they now accepted this settlement of 82p? i think it was their decision that the risk of losing the court case was too great. this was not an open and shut case, rbs would have defended itself quite aggressively if it had come to court, and so the shareholders were
1:51 pm
left to decide whether one in the hand is worth more than two in the bush, and they decided that it was better to have the money. the rbs share price is down around 2% today. where do you see the bank going from here? this is a bit of a milestone year. there are still big problems at rbs, including the forthcoming final that we are expecting from the department ofjustice in the us. there is litigation going on there, and there is the separation which is 110w and there is the separation which is now being moves on to a fund for tanks. but once rbs has that out of the way, not to underplay the size of those issues, it can start looking forward, and at some point, we expect it will be some considerable time because the share price is around half of what it needs to be for the taxpayer to break even. thank you for your analysis. in other business news,
1:52 pm
us president donald trump has said he plans to privatise america's air traffic control system, in what he called an "air travel revolution". mr trump says the reform would deliver "cheaper, faster, and safer travel" as well as an economic boost that could be worth $25 billion to the economy. it's currently part of the government's federal aviation administration employing 30,000 staff. us tech giants occupy the top five spots in a new league table looking at the world's most valuable brands. google, apple, microsoft, amazon and facebook top the list compiled by the marketing firm brandz. meanwhile, the chinese internet company tencent — which owns the hugely popular wechat app — is among the top ten for the very first time. and it's official — we are a nation of gin lovers. record sales of the drink means that for the first time ever the sale of spirits is earning more money for the treasury than beer. last year we as a nation bought a0 milllion bottles of gin. that's12% more than the year before. let's have a look at the markets.
1:53 pm
rbs share price down by 2%. i will be back with more business later in the afternoon. with the general election round the corner, my colleague victoria derbyshire's been organising a series of election blind dates — a lunch between two people with very different political views. this time it's the turn of gina miller — the woman who took the government to court over article 50 and won — and godfrey bloom, a former ukip politician known for making controversial remarks — particularly about women. here's how they got on. i'm godfrey bloom, i was a founder member of ukip but it isn't for me. every time i see mrs may on the television, my pen hesitates over my ballot paper. she's a rather typical vicar‘s daughter. i'm sure she's very good at running church fetes but as to running a country, i rather suspect it's above her pay grade. the sort of date i would hope this is not is somebody who really has no respect for women.
1:54 pm
i'm gina miller, i took the government to court. my voting history's been for labour because it's all about brexit. i will be voting lib dem. hello. hello! how lovely to see you. and you! do you think that we've given already this early in the brexit negotiations, more away than we should have done? all the europeans on the other side of the negotiating table must think they can be as strict as possible, because this prime minister will buckle under pressure. i don't understand the inflexible way we are going towards this negotiation. why are we negotiate something why don't we just leave? what happens next if we just leave? when i left my club, my london club,
1:55 pm
i wrote a very nice letter and said it was marvellous goodbye and they said oh dear, sorry to lose you, goodbye. i don't understand this. what are we negotiating? the question i asked was, when we leave, what happens next? what happens next is that we just trade. it's not that simple, though, they've already said it's not that simple. well, do people know what they voted for? so people are thick? is this the next thing we are rolling out, people are stupid and don't understand what they voted for, i've been hearing a lot of this, we are all a bit stupid. if it's so stupid, why was the biggest search on google uk on 24thjune, what is the eu? that was the biggest search by millions above anything else, what is the eu. yes. we can disagree, but have a
1:56 pm
civilised conversation. and at 3:30 on the bbc news channel, we'll be putting your questions on brexit to our economics editor kamal ahmed and our business editor simonjack, so if you have any questions on trade deals, small businesses or gdp, you can get in touch via twitter using the hashtag bbc ask this, or text your questions to 611211. you can also email us at askthis@bbc.co.uk. let's have a look at the weather with louise. it has been quite a stormy morning. we have seen some significant wind gusts for this time of year, winds in excess of 60 mph
1:57 pm
across england and wales. the rain will continue through the afternoon in some places, so if you are driving and cot in heavy rain and the wind, beer and mentor could be some disruption and it is best to tune into your bbc local radio station. —— bear in mind there could be some disruption. some of this rain will lingerfor be some disruption. some of this rain will linger for quite some time, as much as 100 millimetres across eastern scotland before the low pressure across eastern scotland before the low pressure eases away. across eastern scotland before the low pressure eases away. it is blustery here, but not the same strength of windsor ‘s further south. there will be an afternoon of sunny spells across northern ireland. the bulk of rain starts to ease away to the east of the pennines and into east anglia, but behind it, we still have the sunshine and showers, some of them heavy with hail and thunder and gale
1:58 pm
force winds from time to time. it will not feel much like some of this afternoon. the winds will ease through this evening and overnight, and the rain gradually starts to move further north and east. it will linger across north—east england and in particular eastern scotland, some of that still quite heavy, but elsewhere it stays relatively quiet, nine to 11 celsius through the night, and we will start tomorrow with a good deal of dry weather. tomorrow is potentially the best day of the week, the winds will feel lighter before the next weather system waits in the wings. enjoy the sunshine tomorrow, it will not last for long. the rain will ease off on the far north of scotland, elsewhere, sunshine coming through. the winds will start to strengthen up the winds will start to strengthen up here. 20 degrees not out of the question with some sunshine, but it
1:59 pm
will feel that little bit colour with the north—westerly wind on that exposed course. on thursday it will be wet and windy again. the difference is that there is the potential for it to be more charolais in nature, not as heavy or persistent, but it will still be an u nsettled persistent, but it will still be an unsettled dit d and not like summer. this is bbc news. the headlines at 2:00pm. a third london bridge attacker is named as 22—year—old youssef zaghba — italian authorities had reportedly tipped off the british authorities about him. bell tolls. a minute's silence is held across the uk for the seven who were killed — and the dozens more injured — in the attack. an australian nurse — kirsty boden is the third victim to be named — her family say she was killed as she ran to help others during the attack. another australian, 21—year—old sara zelenak, has been missing since saturday, her aunt says they fear the worst. she's one of those people who doesn't drink, doesn't do drugs,
2:00 pm
doesn't do anything wrong. she's amazing and she's 21 years of age. we'll have the latest from our correspondent outside scotland yard in a moment.
