we difference to streets like these. we have built a new school which we build eight months ago, a district shopping centre 3 build eight months ago, a district shopping centre a ten minute walk away. there is a health centre. it has all the components that the community needs. we just need people to ta ke community needs. we just need people to take up the offer. there are still a lot of derelict houses in your street. does that worry you that you're one of the few lived in houses? the motivation for us to own a house did make us think that way, and we all believe that streets and committees are made by people who live in that community, and that has always been our drive, that we come here come and eventually the other houses will be done and we will build a community together. 100 families have been allocated £1 homes in this part of the city, and the 350 have applied. lets get the weather with louise. if

6:33 pm
karthi gna nasegaram, and james pearce. the headlines this evening. scotla nd scotland edge past samoa as the autumn internationals get underway. england's women cricketers are up against it in the ashes down under. world champion lewis hamilton crashes out in qualifying and whilst art at the back of the grid in brazil. also coming up, a big upset at the rugby league world cup as tonga beat new zealand. and the end of the tournament in scotland, held toa of the tournament in scotland, held to a draw by samoa. hello, welcome to the programme.
6:34 pm
we'll start with rugby union's autumn internationals, a chance for the northern hemisphere to see if they can get closer to the southern hemisphere sides that dominated the world cup two years ago. wales and australia are playing in the late game. england got the better of argentina this afternoon 21—8 while scotland beat samoa 44—38. john watson reports. the rugby world cup injapan, now 678 days away. plenty of time for players to stake their claim for selection, 90 seconds all that stewart hogg needed, seizing a lucky bounce after an unlucky summer following injury. samoa needed a response and found one. josh tyrell in there somewhere to touch down. expansive exciting rugby is the want of the scotland head coach gregor townsend.
6:35 pm
he saw it here along with the pace and power of hugh jones. man of the match stewart mcanally scored twice, as the scotland lead grew so did the samoa attacking instincts. samoa continued to test the scottish defence. hopes of victory punctured by peter horne collecting a clever pass to make it six tries that the scots who start with a win. new zealand to come. at twickenham in all eyes on england's evolution, against argentina, the series up and running, nathan hughes touching down. owen farrell was rested, george ford on kicking duties, england leading but onlyjust. head coach eddie jones looked rattled, the home side looked rusty. england start with a win but there's room for improvement. england head coach eddiejones admitted it was far from his side's most exciting display and said there was plenty to work on ahead of next week's game with australia.
6:36 pm
we just want consistency. we had opportunities out wide which we didn't finish. we've just got to get better at finishing those. the understanding between the players wasn't great, which is understandable because they haven't played a lot of rugby together. and then we just need that consistency of the set pieces. we need to get better, it was the start of the season so we will take that result but we need to step up intensity and application to beat australia next week. scotland head coach gregor townsend was a relieved man after surviving that late samoa fightback to win his first game in charge. i think they all go down to the wire, don't they, all within seven points. similar to the world cup, that game. we had a commanding lead at one stage and we are disappointed to allow samoa back into the game that credit to them, they played well and they showed good energy in
6:37 pm
the second half, credit to have players out in front. there's a fine line between playing the temporal and playing with inaccuracy and re—aired the wrong side of that today. we want to play a fast game but we need to play an accurate game. you know who is next, the blacks. you've conceded five tries, how much work is there to do in the next week? a lot. our defence would be too happy but look at the positives, we did a lot of good things. wales and australia are in action right now, and it's been an all—action game in cardiff. warren gatland's welsh side hit back after an early australian try. steff evans going over in the corner to help wales into the lead. but the wallabies fired back with two more tries of their own. at the moment australia are leading, 22-16. 60 at the moment australia are leading, 22—16. 60 minutes had been played. in dublin, ireland have 3111—0 lead over south africa. johnny sexton scored three early penalties
6:38 pm
to give ireland a 9—0 lead. then andrew conway capitalised on a springboks' error to get the opening try of the game. sexton missed the conversion — but the irish in command at the aviva stadium. despite the international weekend, there was some club rugby today — and gloucester ran in seven tries against london irish, to win 47—7 and gain a bonus point. too late games into their second half an hour. newcastle falklands leading cardiff blues 50—0, northampton saints with the advantage over newport gwent dragons. england's women cricketers are under big pressure as they try to keep the ashes series alive. the one—off ashes test produced a remarkable third day, with australian all—rounder ellyse perry becoming only the seventh woman to hit a double century in a test match. england closed the day on a0 without loss — still 88 runs behind. they need to at least salvage a draw to keep their hopes going.
6:39 pm
our sports correspondent andy swiss was watching in sydney. a potentially pivotal day of the ashes, ultimately one that would leave the australian fans smiling thanks to one of the greatest innings the women's game has ever seen. resuming on 70, ellyse perry picked up where she left off, reaching her first test century but that was just the start. with alyssa healy peppering the sydney crowd england's hopes of a first innings lead soon vanished. they eventually found the elusive breakthrough, alyssa healy caught by anya shrubsole for a5. and there were not able to capitalise, this drop by heather knight proved optimistic as she and ellyse perry shed a partnership, england apparently stumped for ideas and by the tom mcgrath headhunted natalie sciver the damage had been
6:40 pm
done. —— by the time that she had 12 natalie sciver. ellyse perry proved unstoppable and under the floodlights she dazzled her way to a double century, an extraordinary individual display before australia finally declared 168 ahead. that left one nervous final hourfor the england openers who survived intact but will need all the grit to say this match. we've got a real fight on our hands tomorrow but to start in this fashion is pleasing. it has given us a lot of confidence going into a big day. the very toughest of days for england and another tough one to come. a battle to avoid defeat and keep their ashes hopes alive. andy swiss, bbc news, sydney. what a day it has been for ellyse perry. all—rounder ellyse perry had never reached three figures in an international match but that 213 not out is the highest test score by an australian. a sporting prodigy, perry has also represented her country at football, but cricket has taken precedence in recent years — and she's clearly really enjoying
6:41 pm
it. i had ihad an i had an amazing time at there today, batting with all the girls, just taking in what was such a special day in terms of crowd attendance, it being the pink day, day three. just a great event for women's cricket. it was nice in that last session to score in a manner that we did, i think we took about 70 runs, from 13 or iii that we did, i think we took about 70 runs, from 13 or ia of us, we had had a lull leading into the dinner break so to come out there, and such a good tone in the first couple of overs, and to finish it off and get into a position where we could declare it's important for this much to go somewhere. that was great. england all—rounder craig overton has admitted he can't keep the first ashes test out of his mind — and he's put himself firmly in the frame for a place in the side, after helping england complete a i92—run win over a cricket australia eleven. far from being overawed
6:42 pm
by the chance to capitalize on the absence of ben stokes, overton seized it, finishing with figures of 3—15. and he knows what he needs to do to win his first cap. i am getting there, there is still a bit to work on, it's just finding that rhythm. it's just getting used to that. it's just keeping practising, really. lewis hamilton says his crash in qualifying for the brazilian grand prix shows he's human and he's determined to have "fun" from the back of the grid tomorrow. he lost control of his mercedes at 160 miles an hour on turn six of the interlagos circuit, before thudding into the tyre barrier. he stayed in his cockpit for a few moments before letting his team know he was uninjured — but there was significant damage to the car. hamilton has already won his fourth formula one title — and it's his team—mate valtteri bottas who'll be on pole tomorrow. scotland are out of the rugby league world cup, after they drew iii—all with samoa in cairns. that leaves them
6:43 pm
bottom of their group. but there was an excellent game in waikato, where tonga pulled off a shock 28—22 win over new zealand, to top the group. stuart pollit rounds up today's action. scotland had a week to forget when three players including captain danny brough were sent home for being too drunk to board a flight. those scots still in australia needed to beat samoa to make the quarterfinals. the bravehearts within touching distance of the last eight by half—time. leading 14—6,... a different half and samoa were a different side. pace and power pulled the score back to 14—14. scotland needed to [and either this penalty or this drop goal to keep their tournament alive. commentator: and that might be their world cup! had a chance to win the game
6:44 pm
but we can be proud. had a chance to win the game and then another with the drop goal but we can be proud. not proud of the first two games but prouder of this last performance. samoa will face australia in the last eight after the tournament hosts continued their serene progress against lebanon. closer than many expected but the kangaroos crossed six times to win 34—0. no shock in sydney but tonga did pull off a surprise. the pre—tournament decision of eight players eligible for both teams to choose red instead of black now looks a good bet. in a feisty atmosphere tensions boiled over during the haka. the huge tongan contingent
6:45 pm
in the crowd were quiet at first as the kiwis were leading 16—2 in half—time. but tonga didn't give up. hard yards and quick hands bringing them back into the game. they also grabbed the chances that new zealand through their way. commentator: no way! five second—half tries enough for victory, 28—22. i'm lost for words right now. we come from a little nation and it's a great feeling. massive belief now. it's going to give the boys a massive boost and a lot of confidence going into next weekend. the tongans are now potential semifinal opponents for england ina tournament that has suddenly got a lot less predictable. stuart pollit, bbc news. that win for australia over lebanon means england will go through to the knock—out stages if they beat france tomorrow in perth — and that could mean a meeting with papua new guinea
6:46 pm
in the quarter—finals. even if they lose, england are likely to go through, because their points difference is vastly superior to that of france and lebanon — and three of the four teams qualify. the bbc‘s dave woods and brian noble will be watching in western australia. the weather in perth this week has been pretty nice, very hot in fact. perhaps that's been an issue of england because at times their fact to train in hot weather but the good news is, jermaine mcgilvray can play, he's been found not guilty of the biting charge and four new faces in the england side. is this realistically a chance for players to play themselves into wayne bennett's first team thoughts? first and foremost great decision on the jermaine mcgilvray thing, he didn't bite. can they claim to be the best team, of course they can with an outstanding man of the match performance but i think that's what it will take. maybe taylor can push
6:47 pm
the hardest, quite a few players will want to do that. it's a tough ask. it is a world—class games than they have to consider it, she's been a bit clunky with the attack. they've got a lot to do. it's a good question you ask. in relation to will any of those four, that's their decision. all wayne bennett can do is give them an opportunity, that's all they've got in the locker. we have seen the boys, wayne bennett has talked them up saying they will bea has talked them up saying they will be a big challenge this week, will they be, realistically? they will have a crack initially, their enthusiasm has been taken away as this tournament progressed, they started well at first but got flogged by the aussies and i think is the same and england are a big physical team who can play that way so physical team who can play that way so i'm pretty confident england will come away with the game. the united states world cup winning women's goalkeeper,
6:48 pm
hope solo, has accused former, fifa president sepp blatter of sexual harassment. solo told a portugese newspaper that the 81—year—old had groped her during an awards ceremony in 2013. she said she thought sexual harassment had become "normalised" in sport and she wished more women would speak out about the issue. blatter is now 81 years old and ran football's world governing body until 2015. his spokesman described the accusation as "ridiculous". just an hour to go until the republic of ireland begin their world cup play off against denmark. the first leg is in copenhagen. the danes are six places above the republic in the world rankings and manager martin o'neill believes reaching the finals for the first time since 2002 would rank alongside his best achievements. thomas kane is in the danish capital for us. martin o'neill famously does not reveal his starting line—up even to his own players until they are in the dressing room pre—match but he's certainly got it tactically right in that crunch qualifier against wales last month. one of the key performers
6:49 pm
that might was david myler, he misses out tonight because of suspension. glenn whelan is likely to replace him. i think the players have matured. i think there's a good belief in the camp that maybe didn't exist a couple of seasons ago, an inner self—belief anyway. it's not one that is flaunted but there is an inner self belief that we can come out and compete. we know what we have to do, we know we must compete, for almost everything at every given minute. we are confident in our own abilities, i think when it comes to play—off games, in the last one we had against sweden we were probably favourites, but we saw how that ended...| don't think...
6:50 pm
i think it's difficult to call who will be victorious in this game, two very different types of team but we are confident in our ability. it will be difficult for them to get passed kasper schmeichel. ivory coast and morocco are currently playing in a world cup qualifier, with the winner earning a place in russia next summer. and it's the away team, morocco, who are currently looking likely to take that world cup finals spot. they're 2—0 up, with the second half now under way. there was late drama in the south yorkshire derby between doncaster and rotherham in league one, with a 95th minute equaliser salvaging a point for rotherham. they'd fallen behind just after the hour mark, thanks to an unfortunate own goal from their captain richard wood. but the visitors rallied from there. they hit the woodwork three times, before eventually finding a way through in the final minute of time added on. kieffer moore with his 13th goal of the season. for all today's results and how they affect the tables, you can go to the bbc sport website. the holders dundee united have been knocked out of the scottish challenge cup.
6:51 pm
they lost 2—1 at home to the northern irish premiership side crusaders, thanks to a winner from gavin whyte — they're through to the semi—finals. dumbarton won 2—0 at home to raith. in the late kick—off inverness caledonian thistle took the lead against falkirk early in the second half, they are still leading 1—0 with 15 minutes left to play. marc marquez of spain is closing in on the motogp world championship, by seizing pole position for tomorrow's valencia grand prix — the last race of the season. he topped qualifying despite crashing on his final run — and only needs to finish in 11th place to be champion for the fourth time in five years. marquez‘s only rival for the title is andrew dovizioso, who was ninth. marquez leads by 21 points with 25 points still available. in golf, scotland's scott jamieson has a one—shot lead with a round to play of the nedbank challenge in sun city, south africa. he fired a 67, picking up five
6:52 pm
shots to move to the head of the field on 8—under—par. it's five years since jamieson won his only tour title — and that was also in south africa. england's tommy fleetwood is tied for seventh place. he's leading the european tour money list with just one more event remaining next week in dubai. it's been another successful day for great britain at the world trampoline gymnastics championships in sofia, bulgaria. great britain's trampolinists kim beattie, phoebe williams and kirsty way got the team off to a good start with silver in the women's double mini—trampoline team final. mini—trampoline team final, before great britain's men went one better, claiming gold in the men's team tumbling final ahead of china. there was also silvers for luke strong and nathan bailey and a bronze for lucie colebeck. that is a brilliant spectator sport. that's it from us, will be back with
6:53 pm
another sportsday at around 7:30pm. see you then, bye bye. good evening. a cold breezy but sunny remembrance sunday to weights. but before that we have rain clearing its way through southern england and parts of south wales. you can see it on the radar and it will linger for you can see it on the radar and it will lingerfor much of you can see it on the radar and it will linger for much of the night particularly across central and southern wales along that south coast, a scattering of showers running through the isle of man into the cheshire gap, they will be a nuisance. here, more clout, not quite as cold, a few scattered wintry showers, temperatures around two or three first thing in the morning. this cold airbrushing out of scotla nd morning. this cold airbrushing out of scotland further south dealing sundays are noticeably colder feel to the day across england and wales. showers first thing across
6:54 pm
north—west england, wales and down into south—west england so if you are going to the cenotaph in london it should be a fine start, breezy and cold but plenty of sunshine. if you're going to other services, despite some showers in the south—west and a cluster of showers through wales, i'll swear it will be cold, dry and predominantly sunni. a good slice of sunshine through the spine of the country, is scattered showers across the east of northern ireland and scattered showers still wintry flavour. 56 degrees of the strong wind on the coast making it feel pretty chilly. the wind could clip a few showers that there could be showers to wales and south—west england through the day but sandwiched between them, dry, settled, sunny, a little colder than it has failed in recent days, 6—10d are high. as we move out of sunday high pressure will nudge a little further east and the winds should be
6:55 pm
like the temperatures expected to fall away quite sharply. that will be noticeable first thing on monday morning, a hard frost likely, in rule parts of scotland, we could see minus five degrees. important because a weather front is pushing into the north—west and if it bumps into the north—west and if it bumps into this colder air we could see some snow. we need to watch that. further south a bit more straightforward, patchy cloud, highs of 8-10d. straightforward, patchy cloud, highs of 8—10d. for the week ahead cold and frosty start that won't last but it will turn milder and wetter through the middle of the week. this is bbc news. the headlines at 7pm. the husband of a british woman jailed in iran has told the bbc he will speak to the foreign secretary tomorrow. nazanin zaghari—ratcliffe has been detained in the country since 2016. in a moment we'll be speaking to a canadian woman who was in prison with her.
