7:30 pm
we've built new enclosures for several species here, and ironically the next project on the list was building a new lynx enclosure. because there were too many in that small enclosure. that's probably the reason why she escaped, because they were fighting and things like that. but she could have been just chasing a bird. it's hard to say. lets get the weather with louise. let's get the weather with louise. once the rain clears it will turn cold, let's look at it, down to the south—west, that will be a feature of the night but behind it will have a scattering of showers, some wintry on higher ground in scotland and the cold air will eventually descends south. some rain to central and

southern england overnight. temperatures will hold up at about four or temperatures will hold up at about fouror5 temperatures will hold up at about four or 5 degrees and you will see showers coming down to the cheshire 93p- showers coming down to the cheshire gap. behind it colder, worth bearing in mind because if you are going to remembrance sunday services tomorrow it should be sunny for most of us with a cold wind although coastal showers will still go. potential showers will still go. potential showers to the london area perhaps close to the cenotaph, hopefully they will ease off as we go through they will ease off as we go through the morning. generally a fine day with showers to the west and east coast, a cold northerly wind so wrapped up warm. 6—10d. this is bbc news. i'm martine croxall. the headlines at 19:32. the husband of a british woman

7:34 pm
the 13th consecutive victory over their hosts in cardiff. it looked promising for wales early, steph evans going over in the corner to help push them in front after an early australia try. but the tourists scored three of their own, the pick of them from kurtley beale. perfect tackle from the full—back, sneaking out of it with a ball. hint ofa sneaking out of it with a ball. hint of a knock—on from the full—back, he wasn't hanging around and the welsh tea m rea cted wasn't hanging around and the welsh team reacted too late. another wales try narrowed the gap that the winners by eight points. we felt confident going out there, i think we showed that in the way we played. hopefully people can see what we we re hopefully people can see what we were trying to do, credit to australia, they put pressure on but hopefully people can see the positive way we tried to play. it's about creating the mindset and we played well, we were forced to defend in the second half, that's all about the mindset so we're very proud of our gutsy effort. it is
7:35 pm
never easy to win the welsh really took it to us in the second half but the boys dug deep. a new team every time we play, i'm happy with our guys time we play, i'm happy with our guys are time we play, i'm happy with our guys are dealing with those threats and getting the win tonight. some interesting games, in dublin ireland beat south africa. the home side took the lead at 9—0 and then andrew conway capitalised on an error by the springboks to take the opening try of the game. ms ruddock and rob herring scored tries and with the much over, it was a landslide victory for the irish, 38—3 the final score. both england and scotla nd final score. both england and scotland played and they both won, england got the better of argentina, 21-8, england got the better of argentina, 21—8, and there were 11 tries in edinburgh, scotland beating samoa
7:36 pm
44-38. edinburgh, scotland beating 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 stuart 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 wont of the scotland head coach gregor townsend. he saw it here along with the pace and power of hquones. man of the match stuart mcinally scored twice, as the scotland lead grew so did the samoan 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 for the scots who start with a win. new zealand to come. at twickenham all eyes on england's evolution, against argentina, their
7:37 pm
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. john watson, bbc news. 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. 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 around 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 the intensity and application
7:38 pm
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 but credit to them, they played really well and they showed good energy in the second credit to our players out in front. there's a fine line between playing the tempo and playing with inaccuracy and we erred on the wrong side of that today. we want to play a fast game but we need to play an accurate game.
7:39 pm
you know who is next, the all blacks. you've conceded five tries, how much work is there to do in the next week? a lot. our defence won't be too happy but look at the positives, we did a lot of good things. northampton saints with the winners at home to 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. our sports correspondent andy swiss was watching in sydney. a potentially pivotal day of the ashes, and 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
7:40 pm
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, healy well caught by anya shrubsole for a5. and there were not able to capitalise, this drop by heather knight proved a costly mistake as she and ellyse perry shared a partnership, england apparently stumped for ideas and by the time that she hit one to natalie sciver. ellyse perry proved unstoppable and under the floodlights she dazzled her way to a double century, an extraordinary
7:41 pm
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. under immense pressure to play the way they did. 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. all—rounder ellyse perry had never reached three figures in an international match before but her 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 it. i had an amazing time out 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
7:42 pm
to score in the manner that we did, i think we took about 70 runs, from 13 or 14 overs, we had had a lull leading into the dinner break so to come out there, and set a good tone in the first couple of overs, and to finish it off and get into a position where we could declare was important for this much to go somewhere. that was great. 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 xi. far from being overawed 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. i've not bowled much
7:43 pm
over here so 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 14—all with samoa in cairns. that leaves them 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
7:44 pm
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 land 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 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. we owed it to ourselves and the fans.
7:45 pm
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 across the tasman sea 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 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 threw their way. commentator: no way! five second—half tries were enough for victory, 28—22.
7:46 pm
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 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.
7:47 pm
perhaps that's been an issue for england because at times they have had 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 the hardest, quite a few players will want to do that. it's a tough ask. they've got a lot to do.
7:48 pm
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 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 am expecting the same and england are a big physical team who can play that way so i'm pretty confident england will come away with the game. just an hour to go until the republic of ireland begin their world cup play off against denmark. the match us just got underway in copenhagen. can dad has come in for suspended david meyler. no score yet
7:49 pm
but morocco have just become the latest nation to qualify for the tournament. it was fairly co mforta ble tournament. it was fairly comfortable for morocco but heartbreak for the ivory coast who will now miss out on the world cup. no premier league football today because of the international break. but 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.
7:50 pm

7:51 pm
manchester great britain have made it to the final and made sure of a medal. gold in the men's team pursuit. and the gold medal skip coming with katie archibald and elinor barker of great britain securing gold in the women's madison. they collected the top prize by a margin ofjust two points ahead of world champions belgium and there could be more medal success to come this evening. 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. his 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.
7:52 pm
he fired a 67, picking up five 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. 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. it's still goalless between the
