tv   Breakfast  BBC News  June 11, 2017 7:00am-8:01am BST

7:00 am
hello. this is breakfast, with rachel burden and ben thompson. downing street and the democratic unionist party say no final deal has yet been reached over a parliamentary pact. late last night, both parties said talks will continue next week and that the detail of an agreement is still to be determined. borisjohnson has rejected newspaper reports of a leadership bid, giving theresa may his full support. the labour leader, jeremy corbyn, says he's ready for another general election, insisting he can still become prime minister. good morning. it's sunday 11th june. we'll be live in westminster and belfast shortly. pictures of the fake explosive belts worn by the london bridge attackers are released by police. we'll hear from one of the first officers on the scene. at that point, there were still lots
7:01 am
and lots of shots ringing out. i didn't know whether they were our chaps or the bad guys. richard hammond is recovering in hospital after the tv presenter‘s car crashed and burst into flames while filming in switzerland. in sport, scotland are denied victory in their world cup qualifier against england. two superb free—kicks looked to have won it for the scots, only for harry kane to equalise late on. and the weather for the rest of sunday. good morning. nota bad start to the day in norfolk. can we keep it going? the day will turn sunny and a few showers. i will have the full forecast for you in 15 minutes. thank you. good morning. first, our main story. the democratic unionist party says it has had "positive talks" over a possible deal to support a conservative minority government,
7:02 am
but that no final agreement has yet been reached. late last night, both the dup and downing street released statements, revealing that further discussions will take place later in the week. let's speak to our political correspondent, leila nathoo. it is all a bit confusing, isn't it? we had a statement saying a deal has been done and another saying the deal will be done later in the week. we are not sure how far through the process we are. that is right. there isa process we are. that is right. there is a lot of confusion after last night concerning the status of this deal. downing street said they had an agreement on the principles. a few hours later, the dup itself said talks were still ongoing and they would be continuing next week. and then we had a clarification from downing street that actually the details were all still being finalised. you have to remember this isa finalised. you have to remember this is a crucial aspect of popping up theresa may to secure the ten dup
7:03 am
mps. theresa may to secure the ten dup mp5. the argument was they had to give the conservatives support on key votes like the budget and confidence motions to enable the government to survive. getting the details right of this deal and what concessions and what the dup might ask for, all of those things, whether it will be a formal agreement or something more informal, all of these are yet to be worked out. certainly, the may needs to work quickly to make sure that is in place. —— theresa may. to work quickly to make sure that is in place. -- theresa may. you talk about theresa may. borisjohnson this morning said there are no troops to him trying to take over. there are rumblings in tory ranks, unease at theresa may's position. debra accusations she should step down. borisjohnson debra accusations she should step down. boris johnson has debra accusations she should step down. borisjohnson has certainly been a candidate in the past four tory leadership ambitions. he has co nsta ntly tory leadership ambitions. he has
7:04 am
constantly talked about harbouring ambitions to be in the top job. certainly today he is shooting down immediately reports he is somehow preparing a leadership bid if theresa may stands down or if he has support from cabinet colleagues to launch that bid. he is shooting back down entirely, saying he is backing theresa may 100%. he dismissed those reports on social media as rubbish. he is saying let us get on with the job. if it could not get any more chaotic, we have heard jeremy corbyn has plans and has given an interview to suns saying he could still take downing street. jeremy corbyn has been clear from the moment of the election result he is prepared to govern. i still think he sees a window of opportunity here while there is uncertainty about whether theresa may can get numbers with
7:05 am
support from the dup to get the crucial majority in the commons. he is saying he is prepared to govern and labour is preparing to shoot down the queen's speech, the government's programme set out a week from tomorrow. jeremy corbyn is preparing to vote against the queen's speech. that will really be the first test of the prime minister, whether the deal with the dup goes to plan, and whether she will have to water down some of the contentious aspects of the tory ma nifesto, contentious aspects of the tory manifesto, pensions, the winter fuel allowa nce, manifesto, pensions, the winter fuel allowance, social care funding plans she had proposed. all of those controversial things are controversial things are controversial within even her own party. i suspect they will be slightly watered down in the queen's speech. jeremy corbyn is clear he still sees a role for himself at this stage. never a dull moment. for the moment, thank you. we will be right back with you. of course, much more on that during the programme.
7:06 am
jeremy corbyn and lack of alan will both be on the andrew marr show at nine o'clock has won a. —— michael fallon. —— this morning. scotland yard has released pictures of the fake suicide belts worn by the london bridge attackers. the officer leading the investigation says it's the first time he's seen the tactic used in the uk. last night, a week on from the attack, people visited bars and restaurants in the area in a show of unity and resilience. simon jones is outside southwark cathedral this morning. designed to create maximum fear, these are the fake explosive belts worn by the three attackers. they're actually disposable water bottles covered in masking tape, but the police say anyone who saw them on the night would have thought they were real. they believe the attackers might have been planning to use them to create a siege situation. as part of their investigation, police spoke to 262 people from 19 different countries, 78 described
7:07 am
as significant witnesses. three people were killed as the attackers drove across london bridge, five were stabbed to death in borough market. they were remembered last night. in a show of defiance, people flocked to the area's bars and restaurants. obviously, i still reflect upon it and think about the people. but it does not stop me from coming out at all. we cannot not think about what happened. i was wondering about what the mood would be like, but it is really celebratory and find. we stick together. that is what we do. it is what london is about. in pubs, people are being told to donate to the british red cross's fundraising drive for victims of the manchester and london attacks. it is absolutely right on the anniversary of what happened last weekend, the tragic events, londoners can go out and do what londoners do. repairs are continuing to buildings damaged in the hunt for the killers, but the cordons have been lifted
7:08 am
and southwark cathedral has been reopened. an attempt to bring back normality to the area affected. simon jones is outside southwark cathedral this morning. what else is happening there today? absolutely. the cathedral was damaged in the aftermath of the terror attack. police went through the boarded—up door as they went building to building in this area to make sure there were no attack is still at large. also on the door, there is a poster saying the cathedral will reopen as soon as possible. the good news is that is going to be this morning. at how past eight this morning, they are going to have read —— have prayers in the cathedral. there will be books opened and services taking place. to give you a
7:09 am
sense of the geography, the cathedral is there and right behind it is borough market where a number of people lost their lives. the police have gone but security remains. that is because the market has yet to reopen. it is likely to reopen some stage later this week. they still have to do further repairs. the leader of the cathedral said he came to this area on saturday night when he heard about the attack to see if he could help out. he saw people being treated on the street. and he returned to the area again last night. he said he went out to the bars and restau ra nts, went out to the bars and restaurants, not something he would normally do of a weekend, but he said he wanted to be part of the display of unity, to see people come out and enjoy the area again and remember the people who lost their lives. really, it is a message of unity and defiance to say we will not be cowed by these kinds of the
7:10 am
rare tax. doors are opening in half an hour. —— terror attacks. it will bea an hour. —— terror attacks. it will be a chance to reflect on what happened here a week ago. at around 8:50, we'll be speaking to a former policeman who rushed to the aid of people on the bridge when the attack happened. we will also speak to the dean of southwark cathedral. three men have been arrested after an easyjet flight to sta nsted was diverted because of suspicious behaviour. the plane, which was flying from slovenia, made an unplanned landing in germany, with passengers evacuated down emergency slides. a backpack belonging to one of the men was blown up by police. the tv presenter, richard hammond, has been treated for a fractured knee after crashing a car while filming for his new motoring show, the grand tour. he was driving an electric supercar in switzerland when it left the road on a bend.
7:11 am
the 10—year—old, who suffered brain injuries in a crash while filming top gear 11 years ago, got out of the vehicle before it burst into flames. his co—host, jeremy clarkson, tweeted that it was the "biggest" and "most frightening" crash he'd seen. competitors in a yacht race from plymouth to the united states have been rescued after their boats were damaged in a severe storm in the middle of the atlantic. five vessels were affected. one of them sank and two were abandoned. caroline davies reports. close to safety, after surviving what's been called a once—in—a—lifetime storm. this is the moment a 73—year—old yachtsman was rescued by a luxury ocean liner, the queen mary ii. his was one of 22 boats taking part in a transatlantic race when a storm hit. at the end of last month, 22 boats set off from plymouth in the uk as part of a race heading for newport, rhode island in america.
7:12 am
but across the atlantic, they hit 15 metre waves and 60 knot winds. many of the boats were damaged. tamarind, the boat rescued by the liner, was just one of them. a boat called happy suffered a damaged mast and another, called furia, sank. all the crews were rescued. other ships, like this research vessel, also diverted to help, co—ordinated by the canadian military. with cases like this, that far out in the middle of the atlantic, they always take a day or more. even those who run the race were surprised by the conditions. i've been involved with this race for 25 years. these conditions, i can't remember them, so it's unusual, it's extreme, but it does happen in the north atlantic. now safely on board and heading to halifax in canada, at least one yachtsman will enjoy an easier journey, according to the captain of the liner. and i think he will have a much more leisurely and luxury transit to the other side of the atlantic than he would have done in his 38—foot boat. despite the damage, organisers have said the race will go on. caroline davies, bbc news. when disaster hits the uk,
7:13 am
one of the first images we often see is of the emergency services rushing towards danger to protect civilian lives. last week, during the terror attack on london bridge, inspectorjim cole was one of the first police officers on the scene. he's been talking to us about his experience. clear the area now! as soon as the call came out, the police station burst into life. we had two shifts. everyone was changing over. everyone got into any police vehicle that would work and we all went there. it was almost pandemonium. people were running. i could see someone was injured on the floor. umm, they were by the pub on the corner. i was fortu nate by the pub on the corner. i was fortunate i had a police medical on
7:14 am
board. i called the medic and instructed him to go over to the entrance of a bar called captain to set up with his equipment. i did not know whether it was our chaps or the bad guys, but i could still hear shots. and then a stream of people came out of the market running and screaming. so we literallyjust pushed them into the basement of the pub. it seemed like the safest place to put a large volume of people at that time, out of harm's way. stay down! i have been a police officer for 18 years. itjust all happened, just happened, automatically, really. there was no thought process going on. in hindsight, it all
7:15 am
seemed really surreal, thinking back to it. it almost seemed like it was in real. this morning southwark cathedral, which isjust next to london bridge, will open its doors for the first time following the attack. we can speak now to andrew nunn, the dean of southwark. a very good morning to you. we are here, one week after the attacks, can you talk me through your experience of this time last week and the aftermath? what has happened in the last week? this time last week we could get absolutely nowhere near the cathedral. it was in the centre of the police cordon. we went without our church and our ability to welcome people in. within that situation, right until now when we reopen the gates behind me and i getting ready for today's services. it has been the strangest week, not being able to get into the church but at least we are at this point now. am i right in thinking that the
7:16 am
church has never been closed for during any previous incident that london has faced including during the second world war? as far as i know. there may well be somebody listening in who knows better than i but as far as we can tell, this has never happened to us. during the second world war people swept up the church is after bomb damage and got on with the surface. it is a different situation and we have been working closely with the police to enable them to continue their investigations. they had to enter the proof —— cathedral during the incident itself, to break through the doors to see whether all of the terrorist suspect had been apprehended. i know you were out last night in the area. it is quite a vibrant area and one busy with bars and a vibrant area and one busy with bars a nd restau ra nts a vibrant area and one busy with bars and restaurants and that sort of thing. as we said, this is why the attack last week, coming at such a difficult time for everyone when
7:17 am
it is quite busy there. what was the atmosphere like last night when you we re atmosphere like last night when you were out with people? it was great. it felt rather normal. i went with some of my other clergy colleagues around some of the bars, we had a meal but we encourage people to do and then a few of us gathered by the borough market entrants at the exact time when the attack took place, just to keep a moment of silence. but, you know, london is a resilient place. it is a resilient community. people around here doing what they like to do in the borough market and around the cathedral and that is enjoying themselves. it was fantastic to be out there with them and to have lots of conversations with people who had been around, who had friends around and share some of their memories as well. you speak about the resilience and about london returning to normal. clearly london returning to normal. clearly london has faced challenges like this before and it is likely to face
7:18 am
challenges like this again. in terms of what you as the cathedral can be doing there to support people in the area and to help people deal with this. being resilient does not come at no cost, let's be honest. resilience is very demanding. and what we can do is to help people, i hope, find some inner strength. that is what the church tries to do for all people in all circumstances. and to give people a sense of hope that evil is not stronger than good. there are so many, many millions of people, good people around the world. life can be affected by a few evil people as we saw last week but the strength of goodness is so much greater. that is what we were proclaimed today as people come to church and we will continue to do that as we rebuild this community together. i wanted to ask about what
7:19 am
is happening this morning with the cathedral reopening. a significant moment after a week of closure but, also, what events will be taking place to commemorate what happened last week? we have our normal service pattern, you press this morning at nine and ii and then the bishop will be here at i! to preside for us, to bring the community together, really. iwill for us, to bring the community together, really. i will preach. for us, to bring the community together, really. iwill preach. we will have moments of reflection at the beginning of the service and this evening there is a quiet service, we call it a lament, we hope it will gather people together to light candles and that sort of thing. we also have books of condolence for the borough, open in the cathedral now for people to come and sign. in many ways we want to try and get back to normal. the services will be as they always are here. we are ready to receive many people who want to come back into their cathedral. it is good to talk
7:20 am
to you. the dean of the cathedral reopening this morning after being closed for a week after the terrorist attack at london bridge borough market. time now for the weather. there were not many shadows in the background and that is because this line of cloud which was yesterday's what the front through parts of scotla nd what the front through parts of scotland and wales has not slunk into the south—eastern corner. continues its journey off towards the north sea. following an behind, we see some showers peppering the central part of scotland. this will be the order of the day, increasingly so, notjust be the order of the day, increasingly so, not just their vote in northern ireland where we have an early supply of showers. we have seen a early supply of showers. we have seen a couple already across the north—west of england and into the western side of wales. there is a lot of dry weather around and the thick cloud here has enough there
7:21 am
for the chance of a spot of rain. that will not ruin your plants if you have any this morning in the south—east. it moves away and into the afternoon you will see what we mean about how widespread and intense some of the showers will be. a rumble of thunder in scotland and northern ireland and showers more widespread across the north and west of england down into wales. the further south and east, the drier you will be. many things going on at the moment. i highlighted the airshow, i don't think there will be airshow, i don't think there will be a problem. when you may have a problem with the crosses of britain is at the pollen levels are high or very high and when you see sunshine for any length of time, particularly in the south and south—east, the uv levels will also be very high. think about some protection there. in the evening and overnight some showers fade away. that is not the case for scotla nd fade away. that is not the case for scotland and northern ireland. the court might be any means at all. a word to the wise, if you commute along the m8 tomorrow morning, watch
7:22 am
out for the wind on the high ground. there will be gusty conditions around for a time because we have low pressure trundling over the north of scotland. that will produce a bit of shower activity, not the intensity of today. elsewhere dry weather and i are hopeful that many of you will season sunshine at some point during the day, despite the fa ct point during the day, despite the fact that there will be much cloud around. the top temperature around 20 or2i. around. the top temperature around 20 or 21. positive news like that makes you very welcome at any time, phil. you're watching breakfast from bbc news. time now for a look at the newspapers. jon tonge, professor of politics at university of liverpool is here to tell us what's caught his eye. we should say, first of all, this poor man has been working so hard he barely has any voice yet he still
7:23 am
dragged himself in the this morning. 48 hours of talking has taken its toll. thank you very much for coming in to cast wisdom on all of this because it is quite chaotic. let's start with the front of the daily mail. the mail on sunday. this is the speculation that borisjohnson could launch a leadership bid. he denied it on social media, he says he backs theresa may. it is not stopped newspapers from speculating. it is understandable that he would deny it. he who wields the dagger really wears the crown. he does not wa nt to really wears the crown. he does not want to be seen as the person who would put the metaphorical knife into theresa may. she does seem friendless as morning, however, there are not that many articles in there are not that many articles in the newspapers from conservative mps trying to shore up her position. i think it is inconceivable, if there isa think it is inconceivable, if there is a leadership contest, if she cannot shore up a leadership, i am
7:24 am
sure that borisjohnson would stand, despite the fiasco of his previous campaign. david davis, and a rug, they have also been touted. the contest will be triggered by two things, one, obviously, a resignation or a certain percentage of the party writing to trigger an election. it is fascinating in the way the wheels of politics turn. a few months ago, borisjohnson himself was looking humiliated, having built el bowed out of a hole leadership bid and now his time may come again. but he will notjump until there is a vacancy, i would think. recital. theresa may could try and stay on. she had decisive mandate from the party not that long ago. pulled out eventually but in the early round there were two ballads and theresa may was miles ahead of the other contenders. she was very popular and that was just last summer. things changed very
7:25 am
dramatically very quickly. speaking of the leadership struggle, we are told, certainly, that senior tories... they made her sacked to key assistance. you talk about her being friendless. she is looking increasingly lonely in the job. she is. her assistant had to go because they were being blamed for the election. a classic example of success having many midwives and failure being an orphan because the blame game over the decision to call a poll has already started. the easiest thing for all conservative mps to do is to blame nick timothy and fiona hill, the aides who had the full on assault. theresa may claimed she was on a walk in snowdonia, the nice fresh air their made her gung ho and going for the election. david davis has been briefed, has been blamed for triggering the early poll. the big
7:26 am
problem is that it was never fully explained by theresa may by the election had been called. there was an idea of strengthening her mandate, she could have won all seats in england, scotland and wales and whether it would have made any difference with the eu in terms of negotiating position is subject to doubt. did you sense that they were being played? doubt. did you sense that they were being played ? i doubt. did you sense that they were being played? ithink doubt. did you sense that they were being played? i think the electorate do have a sense of that. the history of snap elections is not a happy one for the government calls it and i think she should have been talked out of the moment it started to discuss it. was a huge shock. we came back after the holidays and... if you looked at the polls initially you would have thought it was a sensible decision, that she had been ina quite sensible decision, that she had been in a quite strong position. at the time, while about without the blue, it did make sense. given the volatility of politics more broadly, this would always be dangerous. the reason given for calling the election was never convincing. it was because the labour party was
7:27 am
opposing brexit. the labour party agreed to trigger article 50. so that explanation was never possible. does the departure of the two aides change anything? does it actually change anything? does it actually change anything? does it actually change anything? it does not change anything at all full or that leaves theresa may perhaps even more isolated but ultimately her position depends on two things, whether she does a deal with the d u p and, secondly, whether she has the support of conservative backbenchers, many of whom are enraged they have lost good collea g u es enraged they have lost good colleagues will not be returning to westminster com pletely unnecessarily, in the view of many backbenchers. the mass quickly. hawaiian pizza, yes or no? no. it is now from me. of course, no pineapple pizza. i love it so it is more about
7:28 am
me. this was in the newspapers this morning. the man who invented the hawaiian pizza has passed away at the age of 83. a greek man who lived in canada and ran at pizza re sta u ra nt in canada and ran at pizza restaurant there and decided to throw something fruity honour. he said he tried to put it onjust to see what the taste was like, i say well done. it tastes wonderful. the andrew marr programme is on bbc one this morning at nine o'clock. andrew, what have you got coming up? just a little bit. i am joined by jeremy corbyn fresh from his extraordinary campaign of the government i am joined by sir michael fallon to talk about the future of theresa may and plots and brexit and all of that. i have lord heseltine covering the same area from a different perspective. i have a leading and important player in the european parliament on the basis of what they see emerging from all this in london. and, finally, helping me to review the papers, and
7:29 am
newspaperman called george osborne. quite a busy programme at nine o'clock. go and prepare, andrew, you have much to get through. the headlines are up next to your brea kfast. headlines are up next to your breakfast. —— here on bbc breakfast. hello. this is breakfast, with rachel burden and ben thompson. coming up before 8am, john has a round—up of the sports news and phil will be here with the weather. but first, a summary of this morning's main news. the dup says it has had "positive talks" over a possible deal to support a conservative minority government, but that no final agreement has yet been reached. discussions are set to continue later this week. our correspondent, john campbell, is in belfast. can you bring us any kind of update at all about where we are with these negotiations with the dup, and also a sense of how it is going down in
7:30 am
northern ireland ? a sense of how it is going down in northern ireland? in terms of what will be in these negotiations, we have heard a lot over the past few days about the social policies of the dup, the fact they oppose gay marriage and abortion rights in northern ireland. that will likely not feature in discussions with the conservatives because those matters are devolved to northern ireland. westminster will leave it to northern ireland. what the dup are looking for is a financial package. go back to 2015. another time it looks like it would be a hung parliament. the dup put out a document saying they would support a minority government in a hung parliament, with the guarantee of financial funding for infrastructure. they said they also wa nt to infrastructure. they said they also want to scrap the bedroom tax. in a recent manifesto, they say they will not support the cutting of the
7:31 am
winter fuel allowance and not the triple lock on the state pension. in order to get dup support, they will not be in the queen's speech. really, a lot of it is about money. they also have views on brexit. for example, theresa may has used rhetoric about no deal being better than a bad deal. the dup do not believe that would be good. northern ireland trades a lot with the republic. a chaotic brexit would be bad for northern ireland. there would be a change there. also, the dup don't want special status for northern ireland, to bind it closer to the republic. they don't want people to appear less than british, needing passports to get to belfast. in terms of how things are going
7:32 am
down here, there are complications. the british government in northern ireland is supposed to act with impartiality. the good friday agreement says the government should be rigourously impartial. you have to ask yourself, how can a conservatives secretary of state be impartial but also closely tied to the dup? thank you very much. talking to us from belfast this morning. borisjohnson has described newspaper reports that he is planning to oust theresa may as "tripe." the foreign secretary was responding to an article in the mail on sunday which claimed he was planning to launch a bid to become pm. earlier, the managing editor of the spectator told us a successful leadership challenge could trigger another election. jeremy corbyn has said that he believes he can still become prime minister. speaking to the sunday mirror, the labour leader said that his party could attempt to vote down a queen's speech when theresa may brings one to parliament. he told the paper that he has a mandate to deal with poverty and wants to end austerity.
7:33 am
scotland yard has released pictures of the fake suicide belts worn by the london bridge attackers. each belt had three disposable water bottles covered in masking tape attached to them. the belts were still on the attackers who murdered eight people when they were shot dead by police. the officer leading the investigation says it's the first time he's seen the tactic used in the uk. three men have been arrested after an easyjet flight to sta nsted was diverted because of suspicious behaviour. the plane, which was flying from slovenia, made an unplanned landing in germany, with passengers evacuated down emergency slides. a backpack belonging to one of the men was blown up by police. a busy weekend of sport. and more to come. absolutely. the big talking point yesterday was a thrilling finish for scotland and england. three goals in six minutes turning a game on its head. sadly, it did not end well for scotland.
7:34 am
it was a thrilling finish at hampden park. scotland looked as though they'd snatched victory only for harry kane to equalise. england remain top but for scotland, well, i think the fans expressions after the match said it all. david ornstein was at hampden park. in the end, it was heartbreak for scotland. from joy to despair, denied a famous and incredible victory by england. the newest instalment of international football's oldest rivalry, one that goes back to 1872, each encounter laced with anticipation. security was increased after recent terror attacks. there was a minute's silence in memory of the victims before kick—off. this was a match scotland had to win, something they had not done at home to england in 32 years and which looked unlikely as the visitors applied the pressure. that pressure told after half—time, when alex oxlade—chamberlain came off the bench to make an immediate impact. a goal craig gordon might feel he should have saved.
7:35 am
scotland were bruised, but not beaten. they were invigorated from griffiths. they equalised in the closing stages. they were invigorated. the drama was far from over. three minutes later, unbelievably, in almost identical fashion, griffiths did it again, to send his fans and team into dreamland. but with three priceless points almost within grasp, the celebrations came to an abrupt end, as harry kane had the final say, the captain for the game for england. it is a huge moment for the team. the questions around us centre on character, they centre on the ability to withstand events that go against you. and, umm, yeah, that is what we have to show. we have to be a team that i never beaten. that was scotland's best ever free kick and the second—best ever free kick.
7:36 am
i have never heard noise like that after that before. i look at the players and say it is unfair that you have to keep coming back and taking notes like that, but i will tell them to do it. there was a late drama for northern ireland, too. they boosted their chance of reaching the finals when leeds midfielder, stuart dallas, scored the only goal of the game in the 92nd minute. they're still second in their group, behind world champions, germany, who are well placed for a play—off spot. england's women stepped up their preparations for euro 2017 with a really impressive 4—0 win away to switzerland. arsenal striker, jodie taylor, scored twice. and on bbc two at 11 o'clock, you can watch england take on venezuela in the final of the under 20s world cup. the lions‘ victory on their tour of new zealand, there were wins
7:37 am
for england and scotland, too. england's summer tour of argentina began in breath—taking style, eddiejones‘ side snatching a 38—34 victory when denny solomona went over with just a minute left on the clock. it is great, the result. we were disappointed with our performance. we gave them too many points. it showed a can of team ethic today. ten young guys came in in a difficult situation chasing a game and theyjust did their job brilliantly, which was fantastic. gregor townsend's reign as scotland coach started with a 34—13 win over italy. ross ford ran in two of the scots' five tries in singapore. they'll face australia next weekend. a magnificent ben stokes' century helped england to victory over australia in the champions trophy.
7:38 am
there was a stunning piece of fielding from jason roy, as the aussies were restricted to 277 at a rainy edgbaston. england were chasing a reduced target, and stokes finished unbeaten on 102, as they won by a0 runs and knocked out australia. the women's french open final was a thriller, with 20—year—old jelena ostopenko beating simona halep over three sets. the latvian had been a set behind and three love down in the second but produced an incredible comeback. she is the first unseeded woman to win at roland garros since 1933. rafael nadal is going up against sta n rafael nadal is going up against stan wawrinka. that is on bbc radio five. chris froome has an awful lot to do if he's to win a third straight
7:39 am
criterium du dauphine. froome's team—mate peter kennaugh won the penultimate stage, with australia's ritchie porte increasing his overall lead. he's now over a minute ahead of froome. the top three women's hockey teams in the world are taking part in a tournament in london this weekend. england, argentina, and the netherlands, are all going head—to—head, but it's got off to a rather rocky start for the hosts. lewis hamilton said being presented with one of ayrton senna's helmets was better than any trophy, he equalled his hero's total of 65 pole positions ahead of the canadian grand prix, clocking the fastest qualifying lap ever seen in montreal. he was then stunned to be handed the helmet sent by senna's family. he said he was shaking at the honour. and as we know, that is one of his all—time heroes. what do you get a man with so many

trophies? that. he will put it in his apartment in monaco, one of several. the weather. that is westminster this morning. and little bit grey and dull today, it has to be said, for a weekend in june. and dull today, it has to be said, for a weekend injune. at least it is dry... ..ish. that is the view of the city. there is some sun in the horizon. we have been promised the sun. very optimistic. he keeps saying i am promising. a weather forecaster can promise anything, but it doesn't have to come true. can i "suggest" somethings. this is the
7:41 am
weather front producing all of the wet weather yesterday across the british isles. it was that feature that some people had for a long time. there could be some hefty showers in northern ireland. that will be the order of the day. they will be the order of the day. they will be the order of the day. they will be widespread, as you will see. some have gone into the north—west of england and wales. generally speaking, a lot of dry weather around. glorious sunshine away from the frontal zone dominating in east anglia and the south—east. glorious weather in the north yorkshire coast. for some of you, it may stay that way. look at this. the afternoon. plenty of heavy and at times oppressive weather down into the south of wales. be further south and east, the more likely it is it will be dry. tops, 22 degrees. many things going on at the moment, too
7:42 am
many to list. plenty of things to see. it is the farm oak day in england. pollen levels. people are ready suffering with this in the office. very high. uv levels in the sun are very high. through the evening across the northern half of return in the northern ireland, showers. further south, few and far between. not a cold night at all. monday morning, during the comments, watch out on the high ground either side of the centre belt or indeed within the. —— commute. some gusty winds. bear that in mind. especially if you are on two wheels. low pressure is close by to the north of scotland. showers, but not like today. dry weather here. hopefully the cloud will break up and we will see brightness. not as warm as the
7:43 am
weekend. one that is enough for me. back to you. i will keep trying to get him to promise us some good weather, but i don't think he will do it. they're the king—makers promising to bring stability to the country by keeping theresa may in power if they can finalise a deal. but critics say the democratic unionist party is out of step with modern britain, and the leader of sinn fein claims their relationship with the conservatives will "end in tears." sam mcbride is political editor of the news letter, a daily newspaper which supports the unionists. good morning and welcome to brea kfast. good morning and welcome to breakfast. people would not have much knowledge of the d u p before this week and then suddenly they are in these what light, front and centre, forming a coalition with the tories. would you like to address some of the claims that it is a backward looking poll party with social policies that are backwards.
7:44 am
your suggested that the party has changed a lot over the last decade. that is correct. it is unsurprising that people in london and other parts of the uk when they look at some of the claims of a senior vup figures are horrified, particularly when they look at the order claims from the 19805 and 19905 about gay marriage and gay rights and homosexuality. i think we really need to look at much more recently at the party, we need to look at its record in government. this is a party that has been delivering mo5t public services in northern ireland now pretty much a decade, in partnership with sinn fein, which is a party completely opposed to it. not merely ideal logically but in term5 not merely ideal logically but in terms of love dried, economically and in terms of the entire constitutional question in ireland. the vup are a pragmatic party and can be ruthless when it has to be in the business of politics. you set a
7:45 am
policy has changed and we should point out that many of those issues are devolved to the berlocq into negotiations anyway. but if you look at, for example, ruth davison the leader of the scottish conservatives, 5he leader of the scottish conservatives, she is very concerned about a potential deal between these two parties when there are still issues very much at the centre.“ we wa nt issues very much at the centre.“ we want to know what the vup will a5k we want to know what the vup will ask for in these negotiations, they have given us the big clue, they did not expect to be in this situation this year because the polls had the conservatives with such a thumping lead throughout the campaign. however, if we look back a few years ago to 2015 the party set out in considerable detail what would ask for a scenario where it may find itself. that is a list that is financial, over longingly. no mention of gay marriage or any other lgbti i55ue, mention of gay marriage or any other lg bti i55ue, no mention of gay marriage or any other lgbti i55ue, no issue —— mention of abortion. they want hard cash, they wa nt abortion. they want hard cash, they want financial deal5 abortion. they want hard cash, they want financial deals to northern
7:46 am
ireland, they want infrastructure, hospitals, schools, that sort of funding. it is a more normal negotiation, i suppose in forming a coalition a5 negotiation, i suppose in forming a coalition as to what the conservatives can give them. they also have at least, more significantly perhaps from a northern ireland perspective, some things which are very specific to the unionist community. things like creating legislation and things like the flying of the union flag, treatment of military veterans. the big question of the vup is do they put those things which are cherished by the unionist community or do they just push for things that would benefit everyone. if they go for the latter i think that could be popular in northern ireland that list. some may think that this is a hastily brokered deal, is that if the deal at all. we should remember that the tories have been courting the vup free number of years just in case the sort of scenario played out. this is no shotgun marriage. the vup has been in a position in the commons where the conservatives had been expecting in the last parliament to share members over the
7:47 am
course of our parliament. they have a slim majority so right from the start, david cameron and then theresa may have been courting the vup. they share many of the same policies when it comes to broader economic outlook when it comes to most issues outside of that, that narrow spectrum most issues outside of that, that narrow spectrum of social conservatives which, even some of the tory backbenchers would be very co mforta ble the tory backbenchers would be very comfortable with some of the things that the vup have done. but, really, this is a party that had a champagne reception at the tory party conference last year, a party which david cameron has had in downing street which theresa may has been open about her waning of and which the deputy leader of the party ma nifesto a the deputy leader of the party manifesto a few weeks ago was taking open credit for parts of the conservative manifesto in terms of the firm support for the union and other aspects and saying that this is the evidence of our influence with the conservatives. this is not something that has happened overnight and it is clear from the

between two tectonic plates, so large magnitude earthquakes are part of chilean history. no alarm sounded, some people fled to higher ground but many didn't escape in time. on the night of the 27th of 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. about 18 minutes after the earthquake, a massive
