10:47 pm
a good job getting us into the under 20 clubs, and the pfa, gordon taylor has done a good job in getting us into educate but there's a lot more that we can do. we are in talks with the premier league and the pfa. and we can't forget that this is a societal issue, not just we can't forget that this is a societal issue, notjust football. we need to look at the broader society as well as focusing on the professional game. let's have a look at some of today's other football stories and arsenal have announced the signing of the bosnia—herzegovina international zyad kolashynats from the bundesliga side schalke. the defender has joined on a free transfer, with the deal set to run until 2022. 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. 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
10:48 pm
in tribute to the victims of the london terror attack. they take on auckland blues tomorrow but coach rob howley said the squad wanted to show their thoughts are with those affected. quite emotional, huge condolences from the whole squad, the management and players of the british and irish lions for those families who lost seven lions. it's devastating and we send our deepest condolences to the families. out of respect it was important that we held a minutes silence. and one of britain's big medal hopes at the up coming world championships in london, the long jumperjasmyn sawyers said severe period pain was the reason she pulled out of a recent competition in boston. she said she wanted to be clear on the reasons for her withdrawal because it isn't talked about enough
10:49 pm
in sport. why shouldn't i be honest about it, it is something that some in the female athletes deal with, and it isn't treated like other illnesses and injuries. we talked openly about other illnesses and they are solved, but this isn't openly talked about. pa rt but this isn't openly talked about. part of the population, it is something that we deal with, we should talk about it and it shouldn't be this taboo, difficult thing to have conversations about. that's all from sportsday. bye for now. hello and welcome to the papers. with me now and also at 11:30 this evening are kate proctor,
10:50 pm
political correspondent at the london evening standard and the broadcaster, john stapleton. let's start with tomorrow's front pages. the financial times leads with theresa may's anticipated tour of marginal labour—held constituencies in the last day of campaigning tomorrow. the i has an image of the australian nurse who was killed in the london bridge attack after she ran towards those who had been injured, to help. the metro opens with theresa may ramping up her anti—terror rhetoric two days before the election. the guardian also reports on theresa may's promise that she is ready to change human rights laws, if they stop the government from tackling the threat from terrorism. the times says that mi5 ignored a warning from the italian authorities, that one of the london bridge attackers ‘wanted to be a terrorist‘. the daily telegraph says that italian—moroccan youseff zaghba was placed on an international watch list of suspected terrorists. the daily mirror reports that british authorities were warned of zaghba after he tried to flee italy to fight in syria.
10:51 pm
kate, front page of the financial times, theresa may targeting heartlands and ramping up anti—terror rhetoric. they are really going to go for it in the last 2a hours of campaigning. those seats in the north and the midlands that they believe they could take from the other side. absolutely, she did this and the start of the campaign. she was going after seats that had 8000 majorities for labour, unusual places for the tories to be campaigning. chris bailey and —— chris grayling was in bolsover. here she is, as the financial times reports, the last two days of campaigning, going back out to the labour heartlands and specifically the ones who supported brexit. absolutely, it's the ukip vote that
10:52 pm
they are after, they believe they can lock down now and as a result, ta ke can lock down now and as a result, take those seats. perhaps it is an occasion, she is acknowledging that things are tight but looking at the opinion polls, it is anyone's guess. one of them said that they are within a percent of each other, another says it could be a tory landslide. if you look at the picture, the corbyn rallies up and down the country, in gateshead there we re down the country, in gateshead there were 10,000 people. i know it is a labour heartland and many of them will be young people, and whether they go out and vote is another issue. but the way he's changed opinion during the course of the campaign and gathered support is quite surprising. i've seen mrs may go from supremely confident to, a couple of times, to me, not looking broken but certainly less confident. tonight, looking as if she has
10:53 pm
regained the upper ground. yeah, absolutely. going to the guardian, theresa may threatening to dismantle human rights laws in the wake of terror attacks. we spoke about this and you said that you detected in her come in this speech when she came out with this stuff, feeling a lot more confident and sure of herself. going back to a speech in april, 2016, and the institute of mechanical engineers in london. as home secretary she said she wanted to ditch the european convention of human rights, saying it prevents the deportation of dangerous foreign nationals. she believes this stuff, it isn't just politics. nationals. she believes this stuff, it isn'tjust politics. absolutely she does, she struck a chord when she does, she struck a chord when she said in front of the tory party supporters, if it effectively demands dismantling human rights laws, so be it. and previously she said enough is enough, one of those
10:54 pm
phrases, like tony blair, after the death of princess diana, the people's princess, one of those phrases, saying what people want to hear and that's what she did tonight. she looked more relaxed and confident when she said it. what we're talking about, i imagine, going back to something like the old control orders that labour introduced in 2004, i think. control orders that labour introduced in 2004, ithink. beefing up introduced in 2004, ithink. beefing up the tpims to be more like control orders, which restrict people's movements, when you suspect they are at it but can't prove it. how do labour deal with this now, with 24 hours to go? security is one area where theresa may really excels, actually. she's had a lot of criticism about the police cuts. despite the police cuts? when she's delivering the speeches to the nation at downing street i think she really gets to people and her message gets across. i think she excels at it and jeremy corbyn
10:55 pm
really doesn't. i think she is in the best position for the next two days on the issue of security. loads of people have said, this election, forget brexit, you can almost forget the dementia tax, it is whoever you think will best protect us. that will be the way that the conservatives will be spinning the next 24—hour is. kate, "i'm going to bea next 24—hour is. kate, "i'm going to be a terrorist", the man who was a p pa re ntly be a terrorist", the man who was apparently on the radar of the italians, who ended up killing londoners. a lot of foreign tourists, actually. this man was involved in a very nasty attack. what strikes me about this, this person was effectively pulled over in italy, to what i feel was a lot of evidence, images on his phone. that phrase, i'm going to be a terrorist, and yet the italian courts couldn't do anything and they
10:56 pm
let him go. he was going to syria, he had a backpack. i'm surprised the italians couldn't do anything about this. questions to answer for the british reaction as well but we've got to look at how our european partners are dealing with this. i'm astonished that this person wasn't pulled aside in italy. we are leaving the european union. it's all right then saying, why didn't the british pick him up, but they say that he had isis information on his phone, he was put on some systems they have, which is shared by the italians and m15 and m16, but whether they saw it is another issue. i feel sorry for the security forces. 23,000 cases apparently where they might investigate, 3000 people probably at it, if they get the chance, 500 active cases and it
10:57 pm
takes 30 people to monitor one person for 24 hours. where do they start? and they've stopped what, 18 serious terror attacks in the last few years and three this year already? absolutely. it's not easy. and the game has changed, they may in the past have been looking at people who were trying to get bomb material, plotting things on the internet but in this latest incident, all these guys did is get some knives and hire a van. it is the change to the soft targets. very low tech weaponry. the guardian has a picture of the nurse who was killed, kate, she was running towards the danger to help people who had been injured and she herself died. this is a stunning picture of this nurse, kirsty boden. what an incredible thing for her to have donein incredible thing for her to have done in her last moments, to go and help other people who were facing so much danger. some beautiful tributes
10:58 pm
from her colleagues and i'm so pleased the guardian have this on their front pleased the guardian have this on theirfront page pleased the guardian have this on their front page because we should remember the individuals. we must leave it there, you will be back in half an hour leave it there, you will be back in halfan hourand leave it there, you will be back in half an hour and we will look at some more stories. that's it, join us some more stories. that's it, join us again for the news at the top of the hour. the weather is going to continue to improve across many parts of the country through the course of this evening and overnight and the good news is that tomorrow, it's looking quite promising across most of the uk, not everywhere. this low pressure that brought the dreadful weather today is still going to be affecting eastern areas and it will affecting eastern areas and it will affect eastern areas overnight and eastern scotland in particular may still get a fair bit of rain. this is early wednesday, a lot of clear
10:59 pm
whether across the south and west but in the north—east of england and eastern scotland, still pretty blustery and it will take time for the rain to fizzle away. then we have better weather on wednesday, lots of sunshine, lighter wind, a pleasa nt lots of sunshine, lighter wind, a pleasant day but unfortunately later 011 pleasant day but unfortunately later on it looks as if the cloud is going to increase and more rain for the south west tomorrow afternoon. thursday, a real mixture of a day and again, some rain on the way. this is bbc news. i'm clive myrie. the headlines at 11pm: police name the third london bridge attacker, an italian man of moroccan descent, whose name had been flagged to the british authorities. this morning at 11am, a minute's silence was observed across the uk for the seven people who were killed in the attack and dozens who were injured. tonight, theresa may has said
11:00 pm
she'll change the laws, if they get in the way of tackling terrorism. labour say what's needed is more money for policing and for prisons. if our human rights laws stop us from doing it, we'll change the law so we can. what is the point having thousands of people who are known suspects if you don't actually have
