11:30 pm
no, natalie. hello. this is bbc news with martine croxall. rob andl rob and i will be looking at the newspapers in a moment, not sure about natalie. hurricane irma slams into the florida keys with winds up to 130 miles per hour. millions of homes and businesses are without power. there's barely a soul on the streets anywhere in southern florida, due to risk of flying debris. the hurricane is predicted to create a storm surge which could be up to 15 feet high in places. cuba has already been battered by the hurricane. there's been significant damage and the recovery process is getting under way. in other news, officials in mexico say at least 90 people are now known to have died in thursday's earthquake. hello, and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow.
11:31 pm
the musicalfadeout, so you'll to sit still. with me are rob merrick, deputy political editor of the independent, and writer and broadcaster natalie haynes. and fidget. welcome to you both. tomorrow's front pages. the financial times leads with hurricane irma leaving more than one million homes in florida without power. the ‘i' also talks about the devastating effects of irma in the us state of florida. the daily express highlights a new treatment to reduce the risk of heart disease. the metro says that at least three people in florida have died as a consequence of hurricane irma. the times leads with a study that claims that british people's life expectancy has stalled in comparison to other eu countries. the daily telegraph claims that using bleach and other products to clean the house puts people at risk of fatal lung conditions. we will begin with hurricane irma,
11:32 pm
and it has now of course made la ndfall and it has now of course made landfall in florida, after wreaking devastation across the career been. —— caribbean. some have chosen not to listen to the mandatory evacuation orders. yes, you interviewed one or two earlier, i think. they have decided to even a bit out, if that is the right phrase, or were foolish enough to ignore the advice. —— brave it out. but the facts are coming in from the hurricane hit in florida, storm surges of up to four and a half metres, 60 centimetres of rain. waves as tall as a i—storey home. it is the most powerful ever hurricane recorded in the atlantic. i think the worst might be over, because i heard it was being downgraded to
11:33 pm
category two, from category four. but clearly it has hit miami in the florida keys with all the force that was expected. i wonder how much gentler 110 miles an hourfeels compelled to i60. gentler 110 miles an hourfeels compelled to 160. i imagine they are both equally undesirable to be outside in. i know that some people are saying that their buildings are guaranteed, as much as one can be guaranteed, as much as one can be guaranteed, for winds of up to 145 miles an hour. i guess if it gets to 135 you would be worried, and if it moved down again you would be feeling better. but it is hard to imagine how you stay in your property. i suppose you are afraid of looting and afraid of being away from home. and pets, people don't like to leave their animals. the la st like to leave their animals. the last time tampa faced a storm like this was 1921, when 10,000 people lived them. now there are millions they might stop the daily mail is talking about people who feel they have been abandoned by the companies they travel to florida with on holiday. yes, these companies have
11:34 pm
pointed out that they have thousands of people in these areas, and i am not sure if they are in a position where they can reach them better than anybody else. if the telephone lines are going down and the ports are close, i guess i'm not sure what they can do in the circumstances. —— airports. apart from be ready to spring into action once the wind strop and the warnings are cancelled. and these companies have to abide by what the authorities on the ground are seeing. yes, i was struck by the florida governor stressing to anybody who ignores an instruction to leave but they will not come to help you while the hurricane is coming. therefore, you know, you have made your bed. it is slightly different when it comes to the help that might be provided afterwards. the daily mail is targeting the government, saying that they feel abandoned. the government has been on the back foot for the last couple of days, arguing that it has provided the same level was help —— level of help as the
11:35 pm
french and the dutch. but there is criticism that we were a bit slow. the mirror. north korea nuclear threat to the uk, their missile programme is so far developed it could reach our shores, is the implication. yeah, we have been busy checking michael fallon‘s maths from this morning, when he said that london was closer, or is closer, to north korea, then los angeles. that turns out to be true. about 400 miles closer. i'm not sure how releva nt that miles closer. i'm not sure how relevant that is. if north korea is a threat to anybody other than its immediate neighbours, it is clearly america, because it is america that north korea feels threatened by. i think the idea that kim jong—un north korea feels threatened by. i think the idea that kimjong—un is about to launch a missile at london, evenif about to launch a missile at london, even if he had the capability, is a bit far—fetched. and of course is everybody‘s favourite comic daddy, at of course north korea is acting rationally. —— comic baddie. if you like consistory, it was attacked by america during the korean war, and
11:36 pm
suffered appalling devastation. —— if you look at history. they saw libya give up its nuclear weapons and gaddafi was immediately turned out by western backed rebels. if you are kimjong—un, the logical thing to do would redevelop nuclear weapons is perhaps the only form of protection. i'm not sure i've heard anybody else associates like that.” am not saying it is a good thing for the world, don't get me wrong. but it doesn't do us any favours to claim that he is a madman, or that he is only a madman and there is no rationality behind it. because that leads you to the argument that he is about to attack the uk or ba threat to the uk. which is what michael fallon is sane, which is ludicrous. we do know that he is a big film fan, and can remind everybody, that die another day, one of the worst of the james bond films, has a north korean bad guy. he ends up with diamonds in his face. madonna is a fencing instructor. is it possible i made that up? i don't think so.”
11:37 pm
wish you had. the point of this, surely, is that even if we are not a threat, their weapons programme has developed faster than people expected? but that has been the story for several months now. i'm just trying to bring it back to the story in the paper, natalie. the what? the independent, deportations of eu citizens soar. what is this about? european citizens were promised their rights would be protected, natalie. this would appear they are being undermined. yes, this is a long story that the independent has led with. and rightly so. they are suggesting that official government data 's shows they were more enforced in the first three months of 2017 and in the same period last year. 5000 eu citizens have been deported from britain in the last 12 months. that is the
11:38 pm
highest since records began, an increase of 14% on the last year alone. far more people are being deported. the more worrying fact, as we move into the inner pages, is that not all these deportations seem entirely fair. lots of people are being deported, for example, not for breaking a law but for sleeping rough, andl breaking a law but for sleeping rough, and i quote the home office oi'i rough, and i quote the home office on this, because "this is an example of misusing their rights". which one of misusing their rights". which one of this is not wanted the right to sleep undera of this is not wanted the right to sleep under a roof and then misuse it by not having any to sleep. at a resisting this, appealing against this? one aspect of this story, obviously this is my paper and i think it is an important story, one of the problems is that eu migrants, when they have been arrested and perhaps threatened with deportation, they are not being given the time that they are allowed to challenge it. you know, they are being detained and their access to legal representation is being restricted.
11:39 pm
i think the background of the story is that as home secretary, theresa may vowed to create a hostile environment for illegal migrants. now this appears to be being extended to eu migrants. eu citizens are only supposed to be deported on serious grounds of public policy or public security, when they have done something seriously wrong. instead, this is being interpreted to target offences such as sleeping on the streets, being homeless, and finding yourself get out of the country. the other background to the stories that eu citizens are very worried about future in this country. they have not been given guarantees that they hoped and believed they deserve, as we move towards brexit. perhaps this isa we move towards brexit. perhaps this is a signpost for the future. yes, and leaked memo from the home office. obviously somebody inside thinks that we need to know about that, and the independent has reported that. let's go to the guardian. united nations, britain is
11:40 pm
flouting duty on pollution. isn't the eu quite keen on us doing the right thing under all those regulations that eu insists we meet? yes, and it is well—known that we fail eu regulations on air pollution, as do other eu countries, we are farfrom pollution, as do other eu countries, we are far from alone in that matter. so it is no surprise to see a story saying that we are flouting rules on pollution. what is different here is that it is the united nations getting involved, the un's special rapporteur on toxic waste, who has accused the uk government of flouting its duty. we are getting a habit of being rapped on the knuckles by un special rapids was that we were given a hard time over our treatment of the disabled and poverty in general, and now air—pollution. it is not a proud record that the uk has when it comes
11:41 pm
to the united nations investigating us. to the united nations investigating us. people might normally associate united nations with investigating poorer developing countries, or rogue countries in some way, but here is written, a proud member of the un security council, constantly falling foul of the united nations, it seems. —— britain. falling foul of the united nations, it seems. -- britain. a spokesperson says that brexit presents an opportunity to sort it out. that would be nice. 40,000 people die prematurely from toxic air every year. those of us who live in big cities will know how unpleasant it is. you do not have to be an asthmatic to know that the air is incredibly dirty and getting dirty. you canjust incredibly dirty and getting dirty. you can just look at the numbers. you can just look at the numbers. you don't need anecdotes. brixton roadin you don't need anecdotes. brixton road in south london breached its annual limits five days into 2017. sojust 360 annual limits five days into 2017. so just 360 days left to try to have i'io so just 360 days left to try to have no air pollution at all to balance things out. i'm sure they have wall street. and of course it is not alone. putney high street, king street, chelsea. ipswich has higher particulars, in some forms, then london does. none of us who is
11:42 pm
having a delightful time on the clean air front and it would nice to be resolved. a gallop through three stories in the telegraph. the public sector pay cap will be scrapped. there has been a lot of pressure on this because of public sector workers not having a pay rise for ages. for seven years. they have had 196. ages. for seven years. they have had 1%. that has been lower than inflation for the vast majority of that time. there has been a suggestion that on wednesday ministers will announce that cap will be overturned, at least for the police and prison officers. and as my excellent colleague has orally pointed out, that should leave the door open to other public sector workers. —— already pointed. door open to other public sector workers. -- already pointed. philip hammond is having a headache looking for the money. yes, over summer he challenged cabinet colleagues to come up with the tax rises they were prepared to accept to fund an increase in public sector pay. abolishing the cap and linking it to inflation, again, could cost billions of pounds a year, which the government doesn't have. the devil
11:43 pm
will be in the detail on wednesday, whether the government is going to lift the cap all police and probation officers, and then in the future for all public sector workers, or whether it is going to try to link it to performance related pay, or simply have greater freedom to give increases to the lowest pa id. freedom to give increases to the lowest paid. the other thing they could do is lift the cap at not increase the funding, to the nhs, which would be the worst nightmare for health bosses who face their own cash problems. quickly tell us about how bleach is linked to fatal lung disease? apparently we knew before that the use of bleach could be linked to an increased risk of asthma, but what this study tells us, is that there is not only an increase in developing chronic obstructive woman disease, which is something normally associated with industrial workers, but a 32% increase of doing so. —— pullman area disease. apparently there are no health guidelines, but perhaps there should be for hospital workers and people who used which regularly.
11:44 pm
cover your airways. askham a different dilemma. don't be too clea n. different dilemma. don't be too clean. good advice for us all. i myself clean very rarely.” clean. good advice for us all. i myself clean very rarely. i am not keen on it. just before we go we are going to take a look at this. hurricane irma's storm surge in fort lauderdale brought some fish and land. —— inland. 0ne resident filmed this catfish swimming across her garden path. officials have warned the storm surge is likely to be the greatest threat to residents in many parts of florida, playing havoc with wildlife as well. that is the papers, with added catfish. thank you, rob and natalie. nice to see you. coming up next, the film review. hello and welcome to
