8:01 am
village overcame its problems with litter and vandals to clinch the coveted "britain in bloom" crown. and louise has the weather. it isa it is a different weather story for a different day with lighter winds and plenty of sunshine but feeling cold in the north. good morning. first, our main story. heathrow airport says it's investigating how details of its security procedures were found lying in west london street. the sunday mirror says the information was on a memory stick, and had not been encrypted. andy moore is in our london newsroom. how serious is this breach? the airport has confirmed that was a security breach what have not given details. they said in a statement they had launched an internal
8:02 am
investigation to make sure it does not happen again and they say they have reviewed their security procedures and they are confident the airport is secure. the sunday- stick was mirror reports this memory stick was found on the pavement. member of found on the pavement by a member of the public, who took it to his local library, plugged it into the computer and up popped all these documents, 174 of them, some marked restricted and confidential, there we re restricted and confidential, there were details about the route taken by the queen and other vips when they go to the airport, maps and documents, the location of cctv cameras, details about the cost —— puddles and shafts leading off the heathrow express train line. details of claims of security controls on the ultrasound system that protects the ultrasound system that protects the airport perimeter. the sunday mirror says it has returned all of that sensitive information to the
8:03 am
airport. the spanish government is continuing to strip catalonia of its powers as the crisis over independence in the region continues. 0ur europe correspondent gavin lee is in barcelona. gavin, what's the latest? i was reading that if the charge ca rles i was reading that if the charge carles puigdemont he could face up to 30 years in prison. rebellion is the charge that would carry that symptoms which is effectively treason against the state. but those looking at the defence of ca rles state. but those looking at the defence of carles puigdemont who say that if that charge came, rebellion also includes inciting violence and meet with point to the fact this has been peaceful demonstration and they would say any of islands was carried out by the police during the referendum. —— any of the violence. sedition also carries a 15 year penalty and also usurping as he is still in office and has not said he
8:04 am
is standing down and he has told his supporters to democratically resist the spanish government if the forcibly tried to remove hem and 150 other officials. so we could see the flash point tomorrow. what you have this sense from the prosecutor they are planning these criminal charges against him - other cabinet against him and other cabinet members, he has not gone and at the same time one of the government spokespeople in madrid said if ca rles spokespeople in madrid said if carles puigdemont wants to stand in elections, he can. quite the confusing scenario ahead of what will be a big day tomorrow. presumable that will become a referendum in itself, that election? in the fact the referendum? it becomes, in a sense, are you carrying on in the path of the separatist movement or going to
8:05 am
those parties including those that walked out of the decision to have unilateral independence. it is too early to know at this stage and that is not really a sense from the spanish government what it wants to see but they are simply say, we are not giving away any sense of what will be original let's start but we wa nt to will be original let's start but we want to make sure those going against the constitution be ousted. nicola sturgeon is to apologise on behalf of the scottish government to gay men convicted of now—abolished sexual offences. the first minister will make her statement next week to coincide with new legislation to grant automatic pardons to those affected. the law will also allow the removal of such crimes from criminal records. catriona renton reports. parents will no longer be able to use a legal loophole to avoid paying child maintenance under new rules to be introduced in the new year. the overhaul will affect those who keep their money in a joint account with a new partner. the government says it hopes the change will lead to nearly £400,000 a year in additional child
8:06 am
maintenance being collected. earlier we spoke to divorce lawyer who believes people will still find ways to avoid paying maintenance. i'm personally of the view that this is going to be very difficult because in order to do it they've got to demonstrate the money in the joint account does belong to the person who spoke to pay. what about if the other person says, well, actually, it's all mine, i've paid all my wages in, it may be a joint account but it's all my money, or they've paid cash in. there are so many problems and loopholes round it. chimpanzees, leopards and giraffes are among 33 endangered species that will get extra protection, following a vote at a un—backed wildlife conference. whale sharks, the world's largest fish, are also included on the list. delegates from 129 countries made commitments to cooperate on reducing the negative impacts of marine debris, noise pollution and climate change on migratory species donald trump has said he will release nearly all the secret files in connection to the assassination
8:07 am
of president kennedy in 1963. last week around 3000 documents were published, but hundreds more were held back for reasons of national security. last night, president trump said only files containing the names and addresses of anyone who's still alive would remain classified. england's under 17 team have produced a sensational performance to come from 2—0 down to thrash spain 5—2 and win the world cup in india. the three lions have never before gone beyond the quarter—finals in the tournament but emulated england u205 who won their world cup in june. here's patrick geary. these are england's 21st—century boys. all born this millennium and now all world champions. they did it the hard way, they're english after all. the latest class of spanish footballing craftsman went 2—0 up just over half an hour in, both of them to barcelona's sergio gomez.
8:08 am
same old england? well, no, there's something different about these boys and just when they needed a booster... commentator: rhian brewster to get one back for england. brewster's eighth goal of the tournament making him top scorer, but there are other options, steven sessegnon to morgan gibbs white. 2—2, more to do. here was an england team not intimidated by the shirt but invigorated by it. over to phil foden from manchester city, remember the name. even in their teenage dreams these english players couldn't have imagined a second—half like this. marc gueh of chelsea. 4—2, five minutes to go. and if you thought it was all over... commentator: can it get better for england? foden! oh, the party can begin now. foden was crowned the player of the tournament but this was a team triumph. so proud of the performance, 2—0 down and we just played our way, we didn't stop, we stuck to the gameplan, we stuck to our style, we're building for the future and that's the way to do it. there does seem to be a youthful revolution underway, the under 20s won their world cup
8:09 am
injune, the first for england in any age group since 1966 and now two have come in a year. there are no guarantees the world cup players will become premiership players given the global competition, but these young men can't have had a better start to their careers. english football will hope it is just a start. patrick gearey, bbc news. we were just saying, there can be nothing morejoyful at we were just saying, there can be nothing more joyful at that age group, before the cynicism falls across you. you know the guy who scored the two goals for spain, he is called sergio gomez, he plays for barcelona. imagine if they won and he scored the winning goals, this week of all weeks. from the film studios of hollywood to the corridors of power in westminster, the issue of sexual harassment has dominated the headlines over the last couple of weeks.
8:10 am
the labour leader, jeremy corbyn says mps who abuse women must be "held to account" amid claims that female researchers and aides in parliament have been using a whatsapp group to share information about alleged abusive behaviour by politicians from the two main parties. good morning. i read the story similarto good morning. i read the story similar to this about the french parliament, so it is not unique to parliament, it is politics in general. why is politics the culture where this happens? the other night it was probably lots other places, too, —— there is lots of other places too, places were there is a power imbalance, people are desperate to work there and feel they have to put up with behaviour they have to put up with behaviour they would not do otherwise. especially in parliament where people are employed directly by an mp, lots of small businesses,
8:11 am
almost, we don't —— they do not have the institutional processes to deal with this very good to with this so it is a very good to see people speaking out, political leaders speaking out, but that must be followed by action and processes so be followed by action and processes so this can be rooted out once and for all people who are only trying to get on in life and work in a place like politics do not have to be subject to abuse, bullying, sexual harassment, as just a by—product of wanting to there. it's part of that power game, the problem it is the mps themselves who employ the staff rather than house of commons. if the house of commons applied them —— hired them than all the rules would apply. applied them —— hired them than all the rules would applylj applied them —— hired them than all the rules would apply. i think this exist where you have the power imbalances, where your boss or those in poweror imbalances, where your boss or those in power or hold of the power and you have very little so you might
8:12 am
put up with things and are expected to put up with things you would not otherwise do. good processes and good hr policies and people being treated in the right weight when they come forward with such allegations is also critical. what we have to understand, the power dynamics that they be allowed so sort of today plays. as you say, it is also about encouraging women to feel strength and support so they can call out this behaviour as and when it happens. historically, we know people have been referring to cases but to cases but 20 it is the happening and not just cases but to cases but 20 it is the happening and notjust other institutions —— but to know it is still happening. why do you think people are unable to sit at the time, this is happening and this is acceptable? i think people feel that because firstly they do not want to jeopardise their career or theirjob
8:13 am
and perhaps if they do make that step of coming forward they are not always treated well. there are concerns their experiences and dismissed or chalked off, as we saw yesterday... referring to the michael gove joke. —— joked off. and that even if someone —— joked off. and that even if someone does take their complaints seriously there is no way of holding someone to account. these sort of moments can help us change the culture but then have got to have very robust policies to follow that through, so that is what i would like to see. the former conservative minister edwina currie told 5 live she believed that not every attempt at "making a pass" should be construed as sexual harassment. full it is a growing, humourless
8:14 am
world and i get the impression no man can ever see anything. not all sectoral approaches are sexual harassment. a lot of sexual approaches are you fancy —— i fancy you, do you fancy me, shall we go out? we trivialise harassment when we seem out? we trivialise harassment when we seem to imply all sexual approaches are harassment. asa man, approaches are harassment. as a man, this is difficult to ask but this hashtag flight—mac on twitter is very clumsy attempts are asking people to go out, when debbie crossed the boundary —— this hashtag me too. it depends on your relationship with someone. if you are someone's on bass and you are asking them out that goes because the line because you are using the power of your position —— someone boss. you have got to have more
8:15 am
responsibility as the boss because if you go down the road of going out with somebody you have got their life in your hands. we wondered if the drinking culture was in westminster is a problem because they might have that attitude normal in the office but when they go to the bar they drop their guard? i think that probably adds to it. these atmospheres where thatis adds to it. these atmospheres where that is a lot of power play and a high—stakes there can be a high—stakes environments where there are a late—night drinking and all of that, that fosters that environment as well. i think the drinking culture isa well. i think the drinking culture is a lot less in westminster. i mean, i very rarely go to the bars and many mps do not. we are slowly seeing a change in culture but that
8:16 am
does mean having more women in positions of power in parliament, it means calling out these things, not just in relation to sexual harassment but in relation to abuse and woman online who faced most of the abuse so we need to call it out where it exists at every level so people understand it's not acceptable. lucy, thank you very much. time for a look at the weather. louise is here for us. a beautiful morning for some. 0n the chilly side, five celsius. look at this beautiful sunrise. not the same across southern england. lots this beautiful sunrise. not the same acros and |thern england. lots this beautiful sunrise. not the same acros and also n england. lots this beautiful sunrise. not the same acros and also n south 1. lots this beautiful sunrise. not the same acros and also n south wales. thick cloud and also in south wales. thick enough for some drizzle. moving through wales and the midlands and into the east. when that clears it
8:17 am
introduces colder air so behind it you will notice the difference but as it slips away you will see we never really see the cold air arriving into the far south—west. the cloud will eventually break up and we will eventually see sunshine. northerly winds, lighter than yesterday, mega dry in the summer showers along the east coast. it will feel different. temperatures down on yesterday in scotland and the northern isles. northern ireland around 10 celsius, my order in the south—west. high pressure stays with us south—west. high pressure stays with us through the night, sparkling skies overnight and temperatures falling away. just above freezing in the cities, in overall sports just below in some places so the the cities, in overall sports just below in for|e places so the the cities, in overall sports just below in for our.aces so the the cities, in overall sports just below in for ourfirst so the the cities, in overall sports just below in for our first widespread
8:18 am
potential for our first widespread frost. not be a hard one but you could wake up on monday to be crisp start to your day with lots of sunshine coming through. the winds changed direction through the day with more of a south—westerly direction eventually bringing in cloud and showers in the north and west and more mild weather conditions eventually. the milder story is set to return. the high—pressure never really goes too far away over england and wales but we see these weather fronts introducing some rain, not very heavy across the north west but as we go through next week it will gradually turn more mild. quite cloudy and breezy also and any rain we are likely to see will be to the north and west. back to you. a story that has been breaking this morning. heathrow airport has launched an internal investigation, after a memory stick containing unencrypted security information concerning the queen,
8:19 am
was found in a london street. heathrow says it has now launched an investigation to understand how the security failure happened. simon calder is the travel editor for the independent and joins us from an airport in greece. will you feel secure flying back to heathrow? well, they have said they are fully confident all their security procedures are robust and they will review what has happened and look into it and try and make sure it does not happen again. but it does raise a very serious concerns. the data included on this usb dry found in north—west london, ten miles from heathrow, includes details of the cctv locations, the routes followed by the queen and top politicians and foreign dignitaries.
8:20 am
details of the ultrasound radar screaming which keeps an eye on what is happening in terms of the runway and the perimeter of the airport. a harvest of all in all, quite a harvest of information for any terrorist who was considering perpetrating some kind of attack. under the data security laws, presumably they are not supposed to ta ke presumably they are not supposed to take that sort of them permission out on a memory stick? there are three possible sources of this information and it starts with the possibility that a hacker could have broken into the heathrow security system and downloaded all these files. that seems fairly remote, given where the memory stick was found, ten miles from heathrow. another two possibilities, firstly, did a staff member or contract the download this information illicitly, which would be a serious concern? 0r
8:21 am
was it one of those terrible things we re was it one of those terrible things were somebody had perhaps, without permission of without any ill intent, downloaded the files and subsequently lost them ? that intent, downloaded the files and subsequently lost them? that is what the airport is going to be focusing on. but once again it brings into question, are we doing enough in terms of security? the focus at the molde is stopping people getting devices on board aircraft so therefore the heiress sayyid area is kept very secure and this again —— in the airsize kept very secure and this again —— in the air size area of the airport. raises concerns about possible attacks on the land side such as checkin attacks on the land side such as check in and arrival. they are not nearly so well protected. this would bea nearly so well protected. this would be a treasure trove for a terrorist. he thought this morning say there are conducting a very urgent review
8:22 am
and you would imagine, although they have assurances from the reporters, some things will have to change? certainly. for example, another bit of information seems to have been all the ideal requirements for all the areas of heathrow, which could be very, very valuable to anybody with ill intent. quite a lot of procedures will be changing, starting from this morning and of course this will also trigger more tension between the uk and the usa. earlier this week the americans said any airline flying to america has two up its security standards and this will raise concerns in washington, dc but the british simply are not up to it. but his does say there is no security issue but they will urgently be reviewing their procedures. simon, bring us some olives!
8:23 am
i will do as well. you're watching breakfast from bbc news, time now for a look at the newspapers. science writer dr stuart farrimond is here to tell us what's caught his eye. shall we start with this story... the sunday times. it is about the cup in drink limit. tell us about this. apparently cup in drink limit. tell us abot shown apparently cup in drink limit. tell us abot shown the irently cup in drink limit. tell us abot shown the top tly cup in drink limit. tell us abol shown the top medical e—mails are shown the top medical opinions were ignored when they loose in drink and guidelines were brought in. the lord the drinking limits and the medical evidence which showed that is essentially no benefit at all from any kind of alcohol consumption, something no one wants to hear. we have known for
8:24 am
a long time this whole red wine thing of moderate drinkers may live longer but in reality looking at the statistics you realise people who do not drink very much don't live that long is because they are people who tend to be and have ill health for other reasons have been previously problem drinkers. ultimately, as boring as it sounds, we should cut back on drinking as much as possible. isn't there some association with drinking a small glass of red wine a day? it is tiny. i would not take the view, they quartered it is tiny. i would not take the view, they quarts dame sally davies might remember dame sally davies previously saying which she says when she has a sip of wine, do i wa nt when she has a sip of wine, do i want a glass or do i want to raise my risk of breast cancer? that is a bit depressing. my risk of breast cancer? that is a bit depressinglj
8:25 am
my risk of breast cancer? that is a bit depressing. i will combine a couple of stories, both halloween related. in the observer, my children go to church of england schools so they are quite cautious about having, we have autumn celebration instead. it is such big business, halloween is everywhere. it is huge. apparently we spent an average of £23 each on halloween stuff. 0ne average of £23 each on halloween stuff. one in ten of us spend £50. i do not really like halloween, it has become this commercial thing of plastic outfit and the rest. people ask me, what are you doing for halloween, like it is christmas. halloween has changed a lot, it is very different bendy states. trick or treating was not originally about very different bendy states. trick or treatir on ias not originally about very different bendy states. trick or treatir on doors: originally about very different bendy states. trick or treatir on doors and jinally about very different bendy states. trick or treatir on doors and getting bout knocking on doors and getting sweets, it was, in the middle ages,
8:26 am
children was not on the doors and they would say we will sing a song orsay they would say we will sing a song or say a prayer and it would give them a treat in return. it is nice they have got an initiative about having fun. 0ur street has been dressed this year. they have, there is spiders on windows and skeletons hanging out. we have become much more americanised. the church is calling them liked parties. there is fancy dress and games but it is the lighter side. this is a good one. grand old ghost of york. apparently this writer says it would be in york has some story of the supernatural. i would be interested to know if that is what people in york would actually say. interested to know if that is what people in differences actually say.
8:27 am
interested to know if that is what people in differences as ually say. interested to know if that is what people in differences as to .ly say. interested to know if that is what people in dif things s as to .ly say. interested to know if that is what people in dif things s as not. 1 say. interested to know if that is what people in dif things s as not. the '. we like scary things are not. the reason we like us reason we like them is it gives us that rush of feeling goods, being in a safe place and feeling that rush. i have been looking at these ghost stories new chip. if anyone in your is watching and would like to tell us is watching and would like to tell us about a ghost encounter i would love to hear it. virtual reality headsets, apparently health risks associated with them it could put children's health at risk and particularly their eyesight. you have got these tiny little screens that are less than one inch away from your eyes. is it any surprise this might not be good for people's i said ? surprise this might not be good for people's i said? —— eyesight. i want one of those two weeks ago
8:28 am
for my daughter. i use it more than her. i think this will probably go the way of 3—d tvs. because how many those people would want one of those things strapped onto your head people would want one of those things strapped you your head people would want one of those things strapped you have head people would want one of those things strapped you have picked up the living room. you have picked up the living room. you have picked up the story about how we are com pletely the story about how we are completely clueless about the calories and certain foods. i have it on nine out of the ten items this weekend, to my horror. the granola one is the deceptive one. that is the one she has not eaten! but calories does not always mean it is bad for you. thank you so much, nice to see you. still to come on breakfast: we're live in the lancashire village of elswick where residents are celebrating this morning — they've been named champion of champions in the britain in bloom finals. kevin fitzpatrick is there for us this morning. rachel and i are very impressed you
8:29 am
have got them all out in the streets sorting out the flowers. yeah. and this is not set up, they do this every sunday morning, it is a real this is not set up, they do this every sundaj and rning, it is a real this is not set up, they do this every sundaj and goliath. is a real this is not set up, they do this every sundaj and goliath. 20 real this is not set up, they do this every sundaj and goliath. 20 years tale of david and goliath. 20 years ago when people in this tiny village said they wanted to when people laughed and they have beaten off competition from places like aberdeen, harrow gets. this is one of the chief planters. how does it feel? wonderful. we live in the best blooming village in the uk and unofficial and we have always been the best. lots of effort has gone into this and they hope to inspire other villages to bring their communities to life as well. it is unfair slightly for us to go
8:30 am
there in the autumn because when it wasjudged there in the autumn because when it was judged presumably all the flowers were out. the expertise of the planting shores there are still flowers blooming even at this of year. stay with us. headlines coming up. hello, this is breakfast with christian fraser and rachel burden. heathrow airport says it is investigating how details of its security procedures
8:31 am
were found lying in the street. the sunday mirror says information concerning the queen was on a unencrypted memory stick as well as files on safeguards for cabinet ministers and foreign dignitaries along with maps locating cctv cameras and a network of tunnels and escape shafts, linked to the heathrow express train line. heathrow says its confident that the airport remains secure. —— it's. pro—unity demonstrators are expected to take to the streets of barcelona today, as the spanish government continues to take powers back from catalonia. the spanish government has said former catalan leader carles puigdemont will be free to take part in new elections in december. catalonia's leadership was sacked and the region's autonomy was revoked after it declared independence on friday. nicola sturgeon is to apologise on behalf of the scottish government to gay men convicted of now—abolished sexual offences. the first minister will make her statement next week to coincide with new legislation to grant automatic pardons to those affected. the law will also allow
8:32 am
the removal of such crimes from criminal records. parents will no longer be able to use a legal loophole to avoid paying child maintenance under new rules to be introduced in the new year. the overhaul will affect those who keep their money in a joint account with a new partner. the government says it hopes the change will lead to nearly £400,000 a year in additional child maintenance being collected. thousands of drivers are breaking the law by driving their diesel cars without pollution filters, experts have told bbc five live investigates. nearly 2,000 cars have been found without filters since 2014, but it's thought the number is much higher. it is illegal to drive without them and many cars go unnoticed during mot tests. the driver and vehicle standards agency says it plans to improve the tests next year. donald trump has said he will release nearly all the secret files in connection to the assassination of president kennedy in 1963. last week around 3,000 documents were published, but hundreds more were held back
8:33 am
for reasons of national security. last night, president trump said only files containing the names and addresses of anyone who's still alive would remain classified. we love all things to do with space on this programme and yesterday we asked you to send us your pictures for nasa's observe the moon night, a celebration of lunar science and exploration. you didn't disappoint. david morris sent us this beautiful early evening shot from derbyshire. aris dacanalis took this rather moody shot in rickmansworth. and wayne managed this great close up, you can really get a sense of the craters. the detail is amazing. finally dave knight snapped this in kent.
8:34 am
while we are admiring the world around us, blue planet starts again, we shall be tuned into that. —— blue planet. if somebody deserves to have their feet up, watching the television, it is anthonyjoshua, put through his paces last night, unexpected or so, up paces last night, unexpected or so, up against carlos takam, the way that he has been going in his career of late, people thought it would be overin of late, people thought it would be over in the third or fourth but he took into ten. some have said he looked sluggish. he was at his heaviest weight he has ever been for a provisional bout. look at the size of the guide, he is huge, they stopped it, there was the argument that because carlos takam put on such a good show, they should have let him see out about. 20-0. the
8:35 am
crowds he attracts, incredible. this was a record at the principality stadium, indoor crowd record in the post—war era, certainly he draws people in, anthonyjoshua. 20 fights, still unbeaten. anthonyjoshua's star continues to rise. although last night's bout with stand in challenger carlos takam far from straightforwad. as david 0rnstein reports. voiceover: the v0|ceover: the name, the face, the fighter, they had all come to see, more than 70,000, the biggest ever crowd for an indoor fight, more than 70,000, the biggest ever crowd for an indoorfight, cardiff transformed into joshua crowd for an indoorfight, cardiff transformed intojoshua town, this quy transformed intojoshua town, this guy is box office. the career is still young, only 20 fights in, yet already, the entrance, the aura of a king, by round two, a king with a cut, the damage done by carlos takam's head, nobody said judy liz was pretty. in round four, joshua's power began to prevail, soon, it was the opponents nursing the winds,
8:36 am
carlos ta ka m had the opponents nursing the winds, carlos takam had only 12 days to prepare for the contest, he was nothing if not durable, courageous, awkward for the champion, however, eventually the big shots came out and the referee stepped in, debatable call, carlos takam thought he could go on, many in attendance, too, the celebrations were muted. 100% record intact, another important step on the path to big gold. the most important thing about tonight was, making sure that we won tom that we did not make mistakes. when i started getting a bit to cocky and confident, the corner do theirjob to tell me to focus. at theirjob to tell me to focus. at the end of the day, whether there is five people or 5 million people watching, i just have five people or 5 million people watching, ijust have to focus on winning. with the curtain coming down on anthonyjoshua's year, he can look forward to what could prove a career defining 2018, with the aim of becoming the first man to hold
8:37 am
all four heavyweight belts at the same time and turning a good fighter into potentially one of the all—time greats. studio: looks like 2018 will be another big year for anthonyjoshua, who remains on—track in his ambition to become the first person to hold all four heavyweight titles at once. we can get some more reaction now from the boxing journalist, steve bunce who's in cardiff this morning. good to talk to you, is either real deal, should he have finished him off sooner? as real as he can possibly be after 20 fights, we saw a degree of maturity last night, i thought we would never see a degree of maturity with him, once he got the crack on his nose, quite disgusting, we could hear the noise, really hurt him, he was blowing out plumes of blood, throughout the fight, once he got that, the adjusted, boxed sensibly and broke his opponent down, as lennox lewis said, that is the best we have seen from him. may not have been the most
8:38 am
exciting, not the most concussive, but it was anthonyjoshua, heavyweight, thinking, and a heavyweight, thinking, and a heavyweight that thinks is more dangerous than a heavyweight that banks, trust me. looked pretty pain. yellow a real crack on the hooter. we heard him say that he wants the remaining belt, wbo and wbc, will he get his hands on the next year? the negotiations have been ongoing for up negotiations have been ongoing for up to negotiations have been ongoing for uptoa negotiations have been ongoing for up to a year, two men with the two remaining belt, one is an unbeaten new zealand, joseph barker, who has already fought in this country, he can be tied back with a nice offering of a 3 million quid. the other man, unbeaten american, deontay wilder, 38 fights, 37 knockouts. this is bizarre, he is not an attraction in america, he thinks he is, we know he is not, he is the one we will try to get to this country. i use the royal week, because everybody is involved in the joshua business! if we get deontay
8:39 am
wilder here, fight at the emirates or old trafford all come back to the principality, put up the roof, next november, set new records. records are tumbling. how strong is the heavyweight division, you talk about the potential contenders to face joshua next year, is there anyone out there that can challenge him? deontay wilder would start as a 50/50, joseph barker would start just under that, if tyson fury can get his act together, bearing in mind he has not fought for 23 months, he would start as a 50/ 50. he has got to find motivation and then lose ten stone, trust me, i am a big lad, tyson fury is bigger than me, shifting ten stone, it is not easy! thank you for reflecting on the fight last night. it was a good day for both manchester clubs in the premier league yesterday. city remain top after a 3—2 win at west brom. leroy sane with the

australia chased a revised total because of rain. they hit a boundary to finish but fell 20 runs short of their total. and with australia only needing eight points in the series to retain the ashes, this win keeps england's hopes alive. heading into the test match, and t20 matches to come. big day ahead for lewis hamilton who could win a fourth world championship later. rival sebastian vettel kept his slim hopes alive by taking pole position hamilton only needs to finish fifth to win it! vettel ahead of the red bull of max verstappen. but fifth or higher, a fourth world title will be his no matter what the german does. but hamilton wilkl feel confident of winninhg teh driver's championship and has said he wants to win the race and finish the season strongly. scotland are in action at the rugby league world cup at barlow park in cairns this morning. and just like england and wales it was a heavy defeat. the scots trailed 38—0 to their opponents at half time. but the scots at least got on the score board with this

8:44 am
become world champions, brilliant. what stood out, even at 2—0 down, they did not panic, everyone thought they did not panic, everyone thought they would win. we were unfortunate to go 2—0, against the run of play, the game plan was working, we were playing the way we wanted to, apart from scoring a couple of goals, but it came, and i was really pleased with the character, because they stuck to the plan and play the way we want them to play. important statement about english football to the world, you have out past spain and brazil, claim your own game, countries that people say are more technical and better than britain. —— outpassed. technical and better than britain. -- outpassed. it is our way, we have been working out at st george 's park, trying to increment a style of play, a way of working, and to be fairto the play, a way of working, and to be fair to the england team, any of them playing now, you will see something similar, it is hard to
8:45 am
reach those levels, does not always come that easy. when it does, that is the way that we want it to go.l lot of expectation on these boys. you know what football fans are like, under17, you know what football fans are like, under 17, under you know what football fans are like, under17, under20, they have won the world cup, everyone is saying in ten years' time can we win the world cup? that is the vision, thatis the world cup? that is the vision, that is the plan, to win an achievement at senior level, all we can do is what we are doing. developing these players in the way that they are. this is great recognition for the work that the academies are doing, fantastic academy system back in england, this is recognition for what the fa is doing and the national teams. we need to concentrate on the controllables and that is what we are doing. you need these boys to have first—team football, that is how they will continue to develop, playing for the likes of manchester city and chelsea, you have so many players from those teams. if we keep working, as we are, and the players
8:46 am
keep developing, as they are, then i am sure more opportunities will come down the road. we have good talent in this country. doing what we have done out there, what the other teams have done in the summer, people are starting to sit up and take notice. england have some great players coming through. great night hearing kolkata, get some sleep(!) no doubt, when they get back, there will be celebrations. a couple of names, brewster, for instance, they will become much more familiar to many of us. become much more familiar to many of us. joey barton on twitter was saying, you have got to let them grow, keep the agents away, there will be money. and stop the media hyping the expectation, so, we will shut up! laughter so in fact, you are going to, you are off to read the news on andrew marr, while we do that, we will take
8:47 am
a look at the morning weather forecast. tale of two halves, across the british isles. in credibly mild in the south—west. —— incredibly mild. drizzly, nuisance wine, spreading through wales, into the london area, continuing to push its way south and west, behind it, introducing this cold air we have been telling you about, coming in through the north, we will see cold air coming through the country, never getting into the south—west, keeping temperatures into the mid—teens. bright and breezy, wind not as strong, called the source, coming from the arctic, some showers drifting in, elsewhere, the emphasis is drive, settled and sunny, you will need an extra layer
8:48 am
to be out and about, five to 9 degrees in scotland, ten or 11 for northern england and northern ireland. in the south—west, keeping the mid—teens, as we were talking about. high—pressure stays with us, and with the wind continuing to fall, and under those clearer skies, this time of year, you know what that means, temperatures will fall away and in towns and city centres, low single figures. rural spots, just below freezing. first widespread frost, pretty mild october, hasn't it, and we may be greeted by some beautiful scenes, with a light frost, first thing in the morning, some sunshine coming through. quite story, chilly story. signs of something changing, with south—westerly wind introducing cloud and rain by the end of the day, that will take its time. eight to 12 degrees on monday, then things will get milder again. short, to 12 degrees on monday, then things will get milderagain. short, sharp shock, this chilly spell.
8:49 am
high—pressure stays with us, good deal of dry weather. weather fronts pushing across the top of the hive. that will bring rain, nothing particularly significant as we go through the week. milder yet again, a lot of cloud associated with it just as we have had over the last few days, and breezy, with the worst of the rain, however you want to see it, in the far north and west. probably isn't one of the best days of the year for gardening. but... when the village of elswick in lancashire entered the britain in bloom competition 20 years ago, people laughed at the idea, at the time it was uncared for, blighted by litter and vandalism. two decades on, thanks to the can do attitude of the green fingered community they've just become the much coveted champion of champions. kevin fitzpatrick is there for us this morning. still working away, lots of work to
8:50 am
do, leaves and flowers are falling off, this is a tiny village, in lancashire, not been known for being the prettiest over the years, in fa ct, the prettiest over the years, in fact, a number of years ago, a couple of decades, it looked worse for wear, the councils pulled all the trees out, thanks to this merry band of volunteers. sharon, one of the designers, ethel and viv they have really brought this community alive, and they have won britain in bloom, people thought it was a joke when they said they were going for it. you have been part of this from the start, tell us about the turnaround. written in bloom has transformed this village, there was vandalism and anti—social behaviour, now we plant bulbs and flowers and 15,000 planted this year, and it looks absolutely beautiful. back in
8:51 am
the summer, it was stunning, flowers everywhere, everyone has got involved, children, village hall, huge effort. the whole community is involved, people all over the world have worked so hard for this, and we are delighted with what is happening. you are now hoping that your success against big competition, the city of aberdeen, oldham, competition, the city of aberdeen, old ham, harrogate, competition, the city of aberdeen, oldham, harrogate, that you can inspire other villages to do the same. do what we have done, we have developed a community, we have transformed this village, and it can happen to any city, can happen to a town, can happen to a hamlet. go for britain in bloom, it is the best thing ever. that is the message, get together, do something special. real tea m together, do something special. real team spirit and, back in the summer, there really were some beautiful scenes, as we drove through this picturesque village, as it now is, here in lancashire. even for a bleak

8:54 am
about their teacher. what marks you out, one thing in particular you have brought to the school is the ambition to look after the whole of the students, not just ambition to look after the whole of the students, notjust their education but their mental well—being as well. one of the biggest things we have put in is a mindfulness programme, we cannot get away from the mental health problems, high on the agenda at the moment. for us as a school, we have been on a journey, we were a special measures school in 2015, we have to do something really positive and move results forward. ifelt have to do something really positive and move results forward. i felt we needed to look after staff and stu d e nts needed to look after staff and students and their forward brought in mindfulness, starting with staff... in mindfulness, starting with staff. . . a in mindfulness, starting with staff... a form of meditation. yes, and it is about grounding yourself and it is about grounding yourself and taking the moment. taking a moment to stop, to be breathing, to calm in the mind. prepare students to be the best learners, to learn, and it has had major impact.

watching a little bit now... finding the time in the day to sit and be still and be quiet, the time in the day to sit and be stilland be quiet, in the time in the day to sit and be still and be quiet, in the world in which we live, that is a challenge in itself. to incorporate this into the school day, quite an impressive achievement. absolutely, and we are aware of that, we know the learners, we know what they go through, we listen to them. this is about embracing things. we all have challenges in the morning, i am a mother of two, rushing around, life is busy. it is about having minutes to stop, breathe, clearthe is busy. it is about having minutes to stop, breathe, clear the mind, prepare for the day ahead, and it has had positive impact. not quite so easy to get a bunch of five or six —year—olds to sit quietly! laughter you have been showing them opportunities that they may not otherwise have access to. yes, so, in terms of my own school, one of our huge philosophies is building aspirations for the children. and making them see the purpose of their
8:56 am
learning, notjust in the classroom but outside. your school is in a pretty tough area, the home environment may not always be absolutely as straightforward and supportive as other kids might have. yes, and we use that to help our children and students and help them prepare for life in what we teach them, we want them to see that what happens in the classroom, the skills they learn, actually, they can get a job in real life and apply that to the classroom. we have taken them on trips to toyota, to get them involved in car manufacturing, that hooked in lots of the girls. links with rolls—royce. student leadership group, engineers, we took them to see a journalist, a local newspaper, and look at careers in writing, things like that, giving them purpose for their learning. we can see some of the awards as they were handed out, how important is it for you to get recognition from your
