a day in eastern areas not too bad a day in eastern areas tomorrow in what is looking like a very unsettled picture right the way into next week. more free later. in the next few minutes... in the next few minutes, world's fastest man usain bolt will compete in the 100m semi—finals as he attempts to defend his world title in london. it is another sell—out at the stadium. some lawmakers to tonight, will it be usain bolt again? italian police say a 20—year—old british model was drugged and kidnapped in milan last month, to be sold in an online auction. us prosecutors say a british hacker, who helped stop a cyber—attack on the nhs, has admitted to creating software that steals bank details. his lawyer says he denies it. also in the next hour: a global response to north korea's escalating nuclear weapons programme the un security council is due to meet in an hour's time to consider imposing tougher economic sanctions.
7:01 pm
and in half an hour we'll have all the latest on the second day of the world athletics championships, including britain's katarina johnson—thompson attempt at heptathlon gold. good evening. the world's fastest man, usain bolt, in the next hour, will take to the track for one of his last competitive 100m races, at the world athletics championships in london. he's in the semifinals, aiming to win his 12th world title. he retires after the games. meanwhile sir mo farah, has been speaking about his victory in the 10,000 metres last night. our sports correspondent natalie pirks reports from the london stadium. blue skies and sunshine, perfect for
7:02 pm
making jamaicans feel at home in london. despite a packed day of athletics, their home—grown hero is the only story in town. last run, last time, it will be a great loss for the sport but we will be with him on the last time. i wouldn't say i'm confident, i am overconfident. i know you will win. when he finishes it is the best celebration and it will go on all night and all morning. london is a final stop of usain bolt‘s long goodbye. when he ran his last race injamaica injune it was fortunate that the stadium already had no roof. we are all out of superlatives to describe this sporting legend, but last night in the 100 metre heats he was farfrom his best. he has some work to do here. here he comes, and egos.l shake of the head said he wasn't impressed. london's road showed him
7:03 pm
the love, but london's starting blocks did not. it was very bad, i stumbled coming out of the blocks. i'm not fond of these blocks, think they are the worst blogs i've ever experienced. it was not a smooth start. i have to get this together, i have to get the start together, i can't keep doing this. he won't have too from what longer. he is just too individual races, or 82 strides, from the end. his legacy is already established. he is the greatest there has ever been as a sprinter, and so that won't be affected. but he will want to go out on a win. that's what his career has been defined by. he will no doubt take inspiration from sir mo farah‘s superhuman antics last night. it is gold for mo farah! he took a battering in the final stages, but today he said the months away trading had all been worth it for when he had got to see those he
7:04 pm
loves. it was good to be able to enjoy time with my family, walk around the track. the twins were loving it, rhianna was loving it. it was beautiful, i really enjoyed it. but tonight belongs to one man. as he prepares to bid farewell, the world will say thank you. athletics may never see his kind again. with all the latest is 0lly foster, in the london stadium. it will be a bittersweet night for him and for the crowd. yes, i don't think usain bolt does bitterness though, because what career has had. the cheers you are hearing are for the first of the semifinals that is about to get underway. we can probably bring that to you. that building is forjustin gatlin. 0f course he has served to doping bans, former world and olympic champion. he served two bands are many people
7:05 pm
think he should have been banned for life. that's just one of the stories thatis life. that's just one of the stories that is threaded through usain bolt‘s amazing career, because even when gatlin came back, usain bolt beat him time and time again, through 0lympics beat him time and time again, through olympics and world championships. and he is looking for another astonishing world title. but time waits for no man. he heads the grand old age of 31 later this month, usain bolt, so i think he feels he cannot go on for another couple of years to another global championship because these young guns, yes, justin gatlin is older, but there are some really good young sprinters coming through, and perhaps usain bolt realises that he is not to stay at the top of this game forever. this is the traditional hush, the ask the whole crowd to hush down. let's see it we can show you these pictures over on bbc one right now of the first of the men's100 metres semifinals, and the men's100 metres semifinals, and the first of the british sprinters
7:06 pm
goesin the first of the british sprinters goes in this one. commentator: commentator: it will be close, gatlin second. i said commentator: commentator: it will be close, gatlin second. isaid if commentator: commentator: it will be close, gatlin second. i said if he gets it right he will be... studio: we will be back at the stadium in a few moments for usain bolt. police in italy have revealed that a young british model was drugged, kidnapped and put up for sale on the internet. the woman, who's 20, was abducted in milan last month. she was released six days later. italian police have arrested a polish man who lives in britain in connection with the crime. our correspondent catriona renton is with me now. this is such a chilling story. yes, the 20—year—old model arrived in milan for the 20—year—old model arrived in milanfora the 20—year—old model arrived in milan for a photo shoot that had
7:07 pm
been set up by her agent in the city centre, it was good to be an apartment. it is said this is where she was attacked by two men. she was drugged, put into the bag, zipped into a drugged, put into the bag, zipped intoa bag, drugged, put into the bag, zipped into a bag, and put into the boot of a car that was driven to an abandoned shop first of all in the city come and then she was taken to a cottage in the mountains near cheering. police said the victim had been drugged with care to mean and then was locked in a bag and driven four hours in a car. they say one can only imagine what might have happened if she had had an asthma attack or something like that. it is understood that while she was at the cottage that she was handcuffed to a chest of drawers. this was this ordeal that this woman went through. her kidnapper is alleged to have try to sell her for sexual services online and demanded a ransom of £230,000 of our agents to secure her safe release. after six days she was released. this was reportedly
7:08 pm
because the kidnapper found released. this was reportedly because the kidnapperfound out released. this was reportedly because the kidnapper found out she had a child, and she was taken to the british consulate injapan, —— in milan cost of the ransom was paid. he polished man said to be a resident in britain has been arrested for this, and have been reports that he was captured because police saw him accompanying the model to the british consulate in milan. a british computer expert has appeared before a judge in las vegas, charged with creating software to steal bank details. us prosecutors said 23—year—old marcus hutchins had admitted writing and selling the software, but his lawyer said his client denied the charges. he was granted $30,000 bail, but will spend this weekend in prison after being unable to be released on friday. marcus hutchins appeared before a us federaljudge in a las vegas courtroom. the prosecution said he'd admitted writing computer code designed to steal banking details and also claimed there was evidence that he'd
7:09 pm
discussed how to split the profits with an accomplice. but his lawyer says he denies all the charges against him. how's he doing? he's holding up. he's in good spirits. the family, i think, support and the friends' support and his co—workers and the community have been tremendously supportive for him. indeed, many fellow cyber security experts regard marcus hutchins as a hero for stopping an attack which caused chaos for the nhs and spread to 150 countries around the world. mr hutchins had been living it up in las vegas, partying at mansions, driving fast cars and shooting at gun ranges. the fbi moved in at the airport as he was about to fly home to the uk. he's due in court in wisconsin on tuesday. until then, thejudge here ordered his release on bail, subject to conditions which include surrendering his passport and gps monitoring. marcus hutchins appeared in court in las vegas right at the end of the working week.
7:10 pm
his lawyers had just a few minutes to scramble together his bail money, but by the time they had done so, the court had closed, which means he will have to spend the weekend injail. james cook, bbc news, las vegas. and we'll find out how this story and many others are covered in tomorrow's front pages at 10:30 and 11:30pm this evening in the papers. our guestsjoining me tonight are john rentoul, political columnist for the independent and ruth lea who's an economic adviser to the arbuthnot banking group. scientists have warned that extreme weather caused by global warming, could kill 150 thousand people in europe every year, by the end of the century. the findings come as parts of the continent endure recording breaking temperatures, with a heatwave sweeping across parts of italy,
7:11 pm
spain and the balkans. from sicily, gavin lee reports. scorching times for sicily, with record temperatures the highlands grapes suddenly need to be harvested weeks early. but working in the field in 43 degrees is brutal. translation: today unfortunately the temperature was so high we had to tell the workers to come back later when it is cooler. we all suffer, the machines suffered, the vineyard sufferers. the five year against the sun to save the grapevine wine industry is reflected in vineyards across europe, but the wider impact has led some governments to warn people to stay indoors in the afternoon because of the threat to public health. in the balkans authorities have been advising people to stay indoors and increase their water intake. in hungary as is
7:12 pm
about keeping cool and carrying on. and the strong advice from hungarian officials. translation: if you know any elderly people, ask them if they do they help an offer to do their shopping for them. don't let them go to the market in this heat. we also draw your attention to adequate fluid replacement for children and infa nts. fluid replacement for children and infants. he says it is very odd yea rs, infants. he says it is very odd years, marseille in france. it is a0 degrees. staying hydrated while travelling has been a key message. this is galicia in northern spain. fla mes this is galicia in northern spain. flames turning the sky red and shutting highways. here in sicily the usually packed summer street look more like towns. for those hoping for a break from europe look more like towns. for those hoping for a breakfrom europe is ‘s heatwave, temperatures are expected to return to some normality late next week. this is something scientists predict we should get
7:13 pm
used to, suggesting global warming will lead to more of us being exposed to increased extreme weather patterns in the years to come. joining me now from banbury in oxfordshire is paul wilkinson — professor of environmental epidemiology. that's the impact the environment has on health. he's at the london school of hygiene and tropical medicine. how alarmed should be be by these findings? it is a study that is based on the model of the way the climate may evolve in this century under the assumption that we don't cut back on emissions of greenhouse gases and they continue unabated. if that does continue, exposure patterns that are reported in this paper are those which we should
7:14 pm
expect ezcurra by the end of the century. and as you indicate they suggest there will be a large increase in the frequency of severe weather events, most notably the referring to the large burden of heat related deaths occurring on the most extreme days of heat, which at the moment is a 100 year event but by the end of the century could become as common as an annual event. parts of europe others heatwave and already we're seeing a big impact on public for some people. yes, it is already occurring. we have known that local temperature has been rising for over a century, they are projected to rise much further and much faster in the later part of this century. that's if there is not a cutback in our greenhouse gas emissions. at the moment we're not cutting back enough or quickly
7:15 pm
enough at all. the trajectory is close to one of business as usual, suggesting that the sort of exposures this paper reports would be likely as the century goes on, andi be likely as the century goes on, and i think it will only increase in pace. what needs to be happening with our pace of change fend off the sort of result? there are two things. one is that we have to get used to the idea that there will be warmer temperatures. used to the idea that there will be warmertemperatures. some used to the idea that there will be warmer temperatures. some degree of google warming is now inevitable from the mind of greenhouse gases put into the atmosphere. we have to learn to adapt, protect ourselves, improved buildings and shading and so on. improved buildings and shading and so on. air conditioning is quite effective but is also costly of energy itself and contribute more greenhouse gas emissions. people working outside, that is not too easy. the other important facet is that there is a very clear case for and need to try to accelerate the actions we are taking to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases so that the degree of global warming is reduced from what would otherwise
7:16 pm
be. without the abatement we could easily be looking at temperatures for— five celsius increases this century in europe. wheater limited to much lower levels, 1— to degrees is the aspiration set out in the paris agreement last year. professor, thanks for talking to us. lets take you live to the stadium now where usain bolt is about to run his 100 metres semifinal. he's aiming to win his 12th world title. i imagine there was a big cheer when he just appeared title. i imagine there was a big cheer when hejust appeared on title. i imagine there was a big cheer when he just appeared on the track for even gets to the blocks. yes, an absolutely enormous cheer for usain bolt because he has just stepped onto the track for the last
7:17 pm
of these 100 metre heats. this is the hopes his penultimate 100 metre race because he has to finish in the top two or be the fastest loser before he had to heats already, their years on the track. in the last moments in the second heat, in that first heat the british printer did not make it through, coming fifth. but the runnerfrom waltha mstow, fifth. but the runnerfrom walthamstow, just seconds from here, he camejust walthamstow, just seconds from here, he came just behind you and walthamstow, just seconds from here, he camejust behind you and blake, one of the fellow jamaicans of usain bolt. and there is usain boltjust soaking up the applause of the crowd, because they love him, he loves them. he did the treble here at london 2012 as he has done so often. it is a glorious run he has had at major championships. you
7:18 pm
mentioned him being the world record—holder, that was in berlin in 2009. 9.58 seconds. it is i watering. we have not seen a winner go under ten seconds in the heats. it has been noticeably slower. rab is they are saving something for the final. that final line—up will be just a couple of minutes, then somewhere in the region of ten seconds away from finding out who will be in the men's100 metre final, the blue ribbon event here at the championships. and you can see the championships. and you can see the last of the british runners there. he was pretty much the best of british obscuring in the one metres, but rhys prescott who hopefully we will hear from, he grew up hopefully we will hear from, he grew up going through the world juniors where he was injury had. he was known as the british bowls. wouldn't that be something to go head—to—head with bold in the final? that as the
7:19 pm
stadium announcer says, it is almost time. there is that tank ofjamaican supporters. thousands of jamaicans who have travelled, a mass of jamaican community in london as well, of course, but i think the whole stadium is now going to come toa whole stadium is now going to come to a harsh as the announcer and ounces all the contenders in this third sheet. the top two fastest go through. justin gatlin, the two—time dope cheat, he came through in the first heat. blake, the fellow jamaican and reece prescod in the other heat. those are forenames definitely in the final, there are four more places to go. keep an eye on christian coleman on line four, the young american sprint sensation. he has gone below ten seconds many times this season. cheering
7:20 pm
it goes without saying who that was. and there will be a great roar for cj and there will be a great roar for q ujah and there will be a great roar for cj ujah as well. if cj ujah can somehow get in the slipstream of usain bolt, but watch for the start of usain bolt because he had a shocking start in his heat and blamed the blocks, said he wasn't happy. there is a new mechanism being used at these championships. i spotted a couple of people and they say there is nothing wrong the blocks, they don't move at all, but it is speaking some of the athletes as they try to get everything right. we will hand over to the commentary tea m we will hand over to the commentary team on bbc one. commentator:. where
7:21 pm
are these to be the case he was fastest loser, 10.12 would be good enough if you to finish in the top two. and of course cj ujah with coleman and bowls, that they be what he is looking at. but cj ujah has been running so well. with bolton extended the canon come through to join him in the final. here we go. bold's last individual semifinal. surely he has to make it through. usain bolt is away pretty well, coleman has got that at the moment but here comes usain bolt. coleman is when it come coleman is a cross, 9.9 seven. well, he is through. at
7:22 pm
huge sigh of relief from organisers around the world. that is interesting, because this is our first glimpse of usain bolt and coleman together. the threat looks like it is coming from this man, not just in gatlin. usain bolt has been missed off the screen. look at his face. his name is not on there. the top four does not have usain bolt‘s name. it's all right. he is going, move out the way, i need to check this out. that's interesting, because just for a second use of the crowd going, what is going on? i'm looking at my screen on the computer, and his name is not on there. he has disappeared early. cj ujah has come up as fourth but he wasn't, that's better, he is on there now. for a little while his
7:23 pm
name was changed to andrew fisher. let's have a look. he is not starting well, colin. coleman is expose about of the blocks. absolutely. coleman blasted out. putting it out and saying to you saying, this is how i am. if you can hold me back in and going to be working a little harderfor10—15 metres more. incredible drama there in the last of the men's100 metres semifinals. we did see that usain bolt came seconds to the american christian coleman. he has laid down a marker. we saw usain bolt come second, both men the only men in the semifinals to dip the ten seconds, but for a moment the electronic scoreboard did not have usain bolt even scoreboard did not have usain bolt evenin scoreboard did not have usain bolt even in the top four, and usain bolt was making that sort of gesture with his hand, getaway. i came second. he
7:24 pm
looked across to christian coleman as if to say, don't worry, i'll catch you in the final. he was never worrying about finishing outside the top two, but great drama as we waited for official confirmation that indeed usain bolt will make it into his final 100 metre final. we are also waiting for confirmation, i think, the 10.12 four cj ujah, it is not good i think for him to get through to the final. just missing out. but reece prescod does. what a finalfor him. it will be out. but reece prescod does. what a final for him. it will be at 9:a5pm i cross the bbc. if we can we will bring you action from that as soon as we cannot bbc news as well. drama... usain bolt, something a lwa ys drama... usain bolt, something always goes on in his races, but he is into tonight's final. we'll stop
7:25 pm
breathing for a moment thinking something happened. he is such great box office and the crowd know they are seeing something extraordinary. when tickets went on sale, this was oversubscribed many, many thousands of times over. everybody wants a piece of usain bolt. yes, he is going in the relays as well, but it isa going in the relays as well, but it is a little piece of history tonight. after all that glory, 100 metres, 200 metres relay records olympics, world championships, commonwealth games, wherever he has gone he has swept all before him. this is his final chance to bow out at the very top. he is not doing the 200. it is the 100 or nothing for usain bolt, the greatest sprinter we have seen of all time. last night of course it was mo farah who put us through the ringer, the greatest distance runner of all time, bringing home the first gold medal. will this be the last gold medal for
7:26 pm
usain bolt? he's up against notjust you and but also justin usain bolt? he's up against notjust you and but alsojustin gatlin. and that man he hasjust you and but alsojustin gatlin. and that man he has just beaten in the semifinal, christian coleman, a supremely confident young american, almost ten years usain bolt‘s junior. the old man has to go out and do it again one more time. and i'm pretty sure the majority of the stadium will will him and to do it. we can't take anything for granted, but we wouldn't have it any other way. ollie, thanks. the un will be voting later on proposals to toughen economic sanctions on north korea. a resolution drafted by america in response to recent missile tests would ban exports of coal, iron and lead. if approved, it could deprive the regime in pyongyang, of more than £1 billion a year. our correspondent, laura bicker, joins us now from washington. i don't know how many times they have tried sanctions, seven since
7:27 pm
2006. you wonder him any more options the international community have got. their biggest option as china, and that's one of the reasons why the us has been working behind—the—scenes at the un for a month brokering this deal. since a missile was fired on american independence day, july the ath. the reason china is such a key players because north korea's trade is 90% with china. they're forgetting china on board and making sure china is not exporting or importing goods with north korea can turn the screws onjohn with north korea can turn the screws on john yang. the with north korea can turn the screws onjohn yang. the us has been trying to get china on board for several months. donald trump met with president xijinping of months. donald trump met with president xi jinping of china and described the meeting as a tremendous successful stop six months later he is tweeting that he is disappointed in china. hopefully in that meeting in half an hour china will vote with the rest of the security council to impose these sanctions. that is the us hope. this
7:28 pm
isa sanctions. that is the us hope. this is a significant development, $1 billion worth of exports that will be stripped from north korea. the us wa nted be stripped from north korea. the us wanted to go further and ban imports of oil but there was feeling from china and russia that that would hurt the people and not the regime. yes, how can they be sure that the sanctions will not affect people in north korea who we know at times don't even have enough to eat? the truth is they don't know that this will not affect the people of north korea. by hurting exports it means that the goods that would have gone to other countries will stay in the country. but it does mean that money may be taken from elsewhere. they are not ever sure that they are hurting the regime had not people of north korea. but the us is getting tougher. they are taking a harder sta nce tougher. they are taking a harder stance on china and north korea, within the last couple of hours
7:29 pm
general mcmaster, donald trump's national security adviser has said the us will not tolerate the threat coming from north korea. they're going to take a tough stance, and at the moment they are hoping it will hit the regime. china is critical in this, how confident are they they have got china onside? i'm not sure they are confident at all. when it comes to sanctions and the security council they have some confidence, outside of that when it comes to the sanctions the us had just placed, when it comes to actual transactions, i'm not sure the us feels china is doing enough. they have asked back injanuary for china to stop trading with north korea, but trade between the two countries has actually risen and not decreased. so there is disappointment within the trump administration. they are talking about harder lines and investigating china from what in the view is stealing american licences with regards to goods. and they are
7:30 pm
talking about imposing sanctions on china and on beijing if china does not cooperate. these threats that china may just not cooperate. these threats that china mayjust go back, and when it comes to north korea, they have already responded saying that sanctions or military threat will not work. now let's get the weather. it looks like in london and we have missed most of the showers this afternoon, fine freebie proceedings this evening. the showers have been quite potent, we have seen the worst clearing out the way in the last hour. it will be quite a chilly evening. temperatures expected to dip down into low single figures, not in the towns and cities, but at two or three in the glens of scotla nd two or three in the glens of scotland that will give a touch grass frost. it means a lovely start tomorrow morning for most of the
