10:31 am
what it is like this morning wherever you are. mixed fortunes for some as this atla ntic mixed fortunes for some as this atlantic front brings quite a bit of rain across the north western hills of england and north west wales as well where we could see 40—50 millimetres as that front sticks in this neck of the woods. at least it pushes out to scotland and northern ireland, brightening sky is this afternoon, maybe some showers in the mix. generally speaking the warmth and sunshine, high uv levels and high pollen found across east anglia, temperatures reaching 2a, possibly 25, the weather front bushes to the south—east to finish of the night, showers and not a cold night by any means coming to sunday that weather front is cloudy and with that order drip and job of rain, plenty of blustery showers across scotland and northern ireland
10:32 am
and increasingly across western parts of england and wales as well. hello. this is bbc news. theresa may is continuing work to put together a new government, as she seeks support to lead a minority government. she's expected to hold discussions this weekend with the democratic unionists, to secure the backing of their ten mps. but the leader of the scottish conservatives, ruth davidson, demands assurances that the dup's opposition to gay marriage will not shape government policy, while several tory mps openly question whether theresa may can remain in office. labour has urged her to "make way" for it to form a government. the metropolitan police have revealed the london bridge attackers tried to hire a seven and a half tonne lorry to carry out last weekend's attack — but their credit cards were declined. the three men left eight dead when they drove a van into pedestrians before stabbing people in borough market. president trump has said
10:33 am
he is willing to testify under oath about his conversations with james comey, the former fbi director he sacked last month. mr trump said he rejected mr comey‘s assertion that he had urged him to drop an investigation into his presidential campaign's links with russia. more from westminster in a few minutes's time, now the sport, the full rundown of the weekend ‘s action with mike. thank you. good morning. it was their toughest test to date, but the british and irish lions have won in christchurch against the crusaders, after their best performance of the tour so far. and it's all been about the boot and kicking ability of this man, owen farrell, making his first start on this tour...the lions had a few scares along the way, against the most successful non—international team in world sport, and a team containing 8 all black stars...farrelll kicked 4 penalties as the lions won 12—9.
10:34 am
this performance was a real statement of intent throughout. england play argentina later, in sanjuan — it's live on bbc two, kick—off at 8.15 — and at 10 o'clock, ireland face the united states in newjersey. for england and scotland football fans, they don't come much bigger than this, a world cup qualifier at hampden park...with scotland badly needing a win, because they're 6 points behind, group leaders england. england will have a new captain, tottenham's harry kane, as his manager looks to rotate the skipper‘s armband. . . . but an away match at hampden, is not an easy start though. . . scotland are unbeaten at home in their last five matches. he's got huge belief in himself and his ability. he has always had that. when he played in the under 21s he wasn't in the tottenham team. he was looking to break in. but he had great self—belief even then. he has really grown to be an outstanding player. there is no bigger
10:35 am
international game for us. i think whoever plays england, they want to beat them and we are probably at the top of that list, we can't wait to get started. it is a great opportunity for us to have a go and be the team that is the first to beat them in a long time. scotland and england are not the only home nations in action today. northern ireland travel to azerbaijan looking to cement second place, in theirgroup. england are trying to make it three wins out of three in the champions trophy. they're playing australia, who need a victory to stay in the competition, after their first two matches were washed out by rain. england won the toss and put australia into bat it has only just it has onlyjust started, so australia are yet to get off the mark in the very first over, now it is the second over. bangladesh will
10:36 am
go through to the semifinals if england win today. bangladesh stunned new zealand, knocking them out with a five—wicket win, thanks largely to a record 224—run partnership between shakib al hasan, and mahmudullah. andy murray said he'd had "a good tournament, all things considered", after losing in the semi—finals of the french open. he was beaten in five sets by stan wawrinka, in a match which lasted over four—and—a—half hours — murray does leave paris in better shape, than when he arrived though — and he tried to take some positives from his run. i'm not happy right now, i am disappointed and frustrated and tired after a long, long couple of weeks, but i am proud i have put myself in a position when there was a lot of doubt coming into the event and i didn't feel great at the beginning of the tournament. but i worked through it and i accepted the position i was in and i gave a reasonable account of myself. stan wawrinka will play nine—time
10:37 am
champion rafael nadal final after he beat dominic thiem in straight sets. nadal has yet to drop a set at this year's tournament. he is looking strong, back to his best. maria sharapova will miss the aegon classic in birmingham because of injury. she hasn't played for nearly a month, after retiring at the italian open with a thigh problem. sharapova returned from a is—month doping ban in april and she'd been offered a wild card for the birmingham event. lewis hamilton ‘s mercedes was fastest in first practice of the canadian grand prix, he beat sebastian vettel who is now
10:38 am
25 points clear in the standings but hamilton was bettered in the second practice by kimi raikkonen in the other ferrari. hull fc moved up to third in the super league with a win at second placed salford red devils. this is the kind of play would see in football as albert kelly kicked his way over the line. hull are now one point behind salford who missed the chance to narrow the gap on leaders castleford. st helens widnes vikings in the other game of the day. that's all was bought for now. keep up with the stories on the bbc sport website, back to jane in westminster. thank you. theresa may is in no westminster. thank you. theresa may isin no 10, westminster. thank you. theresa may is in no 10, we might hear some new cabinet appointments today, we heard the key ones last night but others are to be officially confirmed so we make you more about that during the course of the day. the prime minister says she will form a government with help from friends
10:39 am
and allies, as you put it, free dup, despite losing her house of commons majority. that meant that other input is needed. all thoughts and attention turning to the democratic unionist party. a lot of concern expressed over that because of their views on many social issues. we will talk more about that later in the morning. in terms of the mechanics of all of this, my colleague christian fraser looks at hung parliaments and how they work, in more detail. we haven't as much experience with hung parliaments as other countries in europe do but we did have one in 2010 when after five frantic days david cameron went into coalition with nick clegg's lib dems, which lasted the five year term. it's unlikely we could get that this time that the tories can still govern. this is why. 326 is the magic
10:40 am
number. it's the absolute majority, just over half the uk constituencies. the number is normally less than this because sinn fein do not take their seats and the speaker doesn't vote. nonetheless, the conservatives can have a go at it because they have the most seats in parliament. that is what theresa may is doing well. she taken the initiative, she went to see the queen after lunchtime on friday because she thinks she can form a government. what she needs to ensure is that by the time they come to the queen's speech there's a majority of mps in the parliament that will support a platform. put another way she must ensure there is a majority of mps that will not vote against it. so let's look at the numbers. i'm going to build a left leaning alliance. not a coalition but parties on the left that might supportjeremy corbyn. labour have 261, will put in the s np, the lib dems, plaid cymru and also the sole
10:41 am
green mp, and they will be short of the magic number, and also short of the magic number, and also short of the conservative number 313. so five short of the tories. but look what happens to the tories if you put the dup with them. the biggest party in the northern ireland assembly, ten seats and they are over that magic number. so they have potentially 328 mps. what kind of relationship would this be with the dup? three options, potentially. a formal coalition or a much more informal relationship with a vote on a vote by vote basis or what we call confidence and supply whereby the dup agrees to vote with the government on key issues like a budget or a vote that might bring down the government, in return for price. the one thing to say is that these two parties do have long—standing connections and the dup has voted with the conservatives many times before. a of important
10:42 am
dates before we finish. june 13 is when the new parliament meets. after that, through the week new mps will be sworn in. this is the day by which theresa may has to be confident she's got that majority of mps. a week on monday, june 19. incidentally what happens if, after that point, after the queen's speech, there's a leadership contest 01’ speech, there's a leadership contest or theresa may decides to stand aside? the conservatives would still remain in power while any leadership contest follows. christian fraser with his guide as to what might happen in the coming days and weeks. just to tell you about the final seat of this whole contest, when we woke up and heard most of the results on friday morning there was one that went through many recounts, that was kensington in west london. finally labour took the conservative seat of kensington in west london, the final constituency declaration.
10:43 am
after a third recount, emma dent coad won byjust twenty votes, overturning a majority of 7,000. it leaves the tories with 318 seats in the commons and labour on 262. three recounts in kensington, west london. and a sense of what people are making of it with 2a hours or so to digest all of this, the times says that theresa may is staring into the a byss. that theresa may is staring into the abyss. she's had her chips, says the sun. the daily mirror talks about the coalition of crackpots and another headline says that mrs may is fighting to remain. that's a fair assessment of how the newspapers judge at all. lots more to come and after a m i will be talking to a former conservative who lost his seatin former conservative who lost his seat in the general election on thursday, we will be asking for his views on what this all means for
10:44 am
brexit talks and for the country as a whole. that's coming up from 11am. basilfrom a whole. that's coming up from 11am. basil from westminster. back to the studio. thank you, we will talk to you ina studio. thank you, we will talk to you in a few minutes time. eight people are now in custody over the terror attacks, police have revealed that the attackers wanted to hirea revealed that the attackers wanted to hire a seven tonne lorry but their credit cards were declined. this is the knife found on the body of combat. he and his fellow attackers used other mad estimate of five people. counterterrorism units wa nt five people. counterterrorism units want help as to whether were bought. they killed people on london bridge with a van hired from b and q,

throughout the khan is of the public tried to stop them. we have stories of people who came out and with cheers, other items, they were throwing bottles and anything they could get their hands on to try to prevent the attackers either coming into pubs and bars but more importantly to scare them from trying to stop other people from being attacked. people found bombs in the van as well as to blow torches. the day had started with the ringleader, could but, on police bail, trying to hire a seven and a half tonne truck. he didn't have enough money so he hired the white van from b and q enough money so he hired the white vanfrom b and q in enough money so he hired the white van from b and q in romford which the men picked up after 6:30pm. then, leaving barking soon after 7:30pm they set off for central london. at 9:58pm they arrived at london. at 9:58pm they arrived at london bridge, driving across it and back before ploughing into pedestrians on their third pass. by the time they crushed the van at
10:46 am
seven minutes past ten they had fatally wounded three people, then they used the knives to kill five more. at 10:16pm they were shot dead by police. detectives now believe it was ina by police. detectives now believe it was in a flat above this row of shops in east london that the men had prepared for the attack. daniel sandford, bbc news. 25 people have been arrested on suspicion of committing hate crimes in the capital in the week since the london bridge attack. the metropolitan police also says the number of officers on the streets has been increased to reassure communities who may feel worried as they gather in their places of worship. president donald trump says he is "one hundred per cent" willing to speak under oath about his conversations with the ex—fbi chiefjames comey. mr trump has denied having asked for mr comey‘s loyalty, or for an inquiry into a former white house aide to be dropped. mr comey says he was fired because of the investigation into links between the president's

election team and russia. those are the headlines, more at the top of the hour. now on bbc is it is time for the travel show. this week on the travel show: we're in chile exploring a town that was knocked down by nature and how it is putting itself back together again. also coming up on this week's show: meeting the man who's attempting to bagpipe his way around the world. the long coastline of chile is the point of collision between two tectonic plates, so large magnitude earthquakes are part of chilean history. no alarm sounded, some people fled
10:48 am
to higher ground but many didn't escape in time. on the night of 27th february, 2010, the central coast of chile was hit by one of the biggest earthquakes ever recorded. the magnitude was 8.8 and the city of constitucion was sitting at the epicentre. but that was not the only deadly force of nature to strike at night. to strike that night. about 18 minutes after the earthquake, a massive
10:49 am
tsunami engulfed constitucion. the waves were as high as 15 metres. the remains of the city were washed away. exploring this area, you don't have to scratch very far below the surface to see evidence of the tsunami still here seven years on. more than 500 people lost their lives all over chile to the earthquake and the tsunami of 2010. this family had made a living from their boats for generations, but they'd never experienced a tsunami before. when the earthquake began, they ran to their boats to head into the ocean trying to escape from collapsing buildings. they didn't know they were heading straight into the tsunami. after the tsunami, sofia and her husband found the strength

travel—related stories, snaps and videos online. it might not be everyone's favourite instrument... but one hardy musician hopes to be the first to play the bagpipes in every country in the world. ross o'connelljennings set off in april, 2014 and has visited 60 countries so far. i like the idea of being the first person to do something, but also bagpipes aren't just scottish, they are an international instrument. there are over 130 bagpipes from countries around the world. mostly it's been positive responses. i was in the vatican city three years ago and i had a feeling that wasn't going to go too well.

10:56 am
i took that same concept of filming in three—dimensional movement and took it to the air. my three top tips for getting the best shots: don't fly nearairports, congested areas or helicopters. try and fly smoothly. if you have smooth shots, it won't pull the viewer out of the experience. and film and fly when the light is beautiful. and if you say anything you think we should know about, don't forget to get in touch. well, that's all we've got time for this week.
