england heading for defeat? divisions between the british and irish governments over how the northern ireland border works after brexit deepened today. the international trade secretary, liam fox, said final decisions could only be made once the uk knows what its future eu trade deal would be. what its future eu ireland has however said it could veto moving on to those talks at the next eu summit injust over two weeks. our ireland correspondent chris buckler reports. dodt chris buckler reports. along the irish border, you will dodt along the irish border, you will find old huts that were once customs posts. places where people had to stop to show their papers. but that was a long time ago. a
10:02 pm
car's satellite navigation may tell you when you have crossed from northern ireland into the republic. but there is little to show it. the irish wants a guarantee that this land will remain open and the border invisible and it says unless it gets those assurances, it will block the next round of brexit talks. but britain said you can't talk of border without discussing trade. you can't get an answer until we get an idea of the end state and we get into the discussions with the eu, that will be difficult. the quicker we can do that the better. we are still in the position where the eu does not want to do that. we are getting close to 2018 when we will be talking about next year when we leave the eu. here is the problem - the brexit negotiations are still in their first phase and while the uk wa nts to their first phase and while the uk wants to move on, to talk about trading with the eu, brussels says that will on the be possible once
10:03 pm
there is progress on three issues — how many the uk will pay as it leaves, citizens' rights and the border. i read a quote where liam fox has said that the border issue, the irish issue will not be solved until the final stage and we reach a decision on trade. i hope the united kingdom is not holing the irish situation to ransom. it is too serious and too critical. the british government has already made clear that it wants to leave the single market and the customs union. which means after brexit the uk's economy would be governed by different rules and could negotiate different rules and could negotiate different trade deals. to ensure there is no hard border the irish government has suggested that northern ireland could remain in both. unionists fear if northern ireland was to stay inside the
10:04 pm
customs union and the rest of the uk would leave, new checks would be needed for ships, effectively creating a border in the irish sea between two parts of united kingdom and that could be unacceptable to the democratic unionist party whose support the conservatives rely on at westminster. our biggest market is gb and it will be madness and a dereliction of my duty if i didn't try to stop a border in the irish sea. but what will happen on land? ina sea. but what will happen on land? in a place where political divides are much more obvious than the border. chris mason is at downing street. border. we heard about the political divides in that report — how far apart are they really? divides in that report — this divides in that report — is a huge challenge, the
10:05 pm
frontier this is a huge challenge, the frontier appears to be the most troublesome frontier between the brexit talks stalling or progressing. for ireland this matter, ireland is hugely exposed by brexit and now wields huge power. they have a veto and they can stop the talks progressing to the next stage. but will that happen? for the prime minister now, a couple of weeks of frantic diplomacy and telephone calls to european leaders and remember there doesn't have to be progress that makes sure that all of the issues are resolved. 0n the financial settle and the irish border, they have to prove that sufficient progress has been made. that ill—defined hurdle set down by the european union. it is a hurdle though that there is not much time to overcome. thank you. police in leeds are investigating the deaths of five people,

10:08 pm
he's now put on a new one, saying a reconciliation process was needed to heal zimbabwe's divisions. i will try and put them all together using superglue. it would be a pretty ropey colour. all together using superglue. a ropey colour and i think the lesson for zimbabwe is the same — theyjust can't try and stitch it up. something more radical, something new needs to happen in terms of the rule of law, allowing people to getjobs, because 90% of people are out of work. allowing people to getjobs, because so they can'tjust stitch it up. allowing people to getjobs, because the husband ofjailed british woman nazanin zaghari—ratcliffe has accused iranian media of prejudicing his wife's case. it's after iranian state tv broadcast a programme showing pictures of a bbc pay stub and an e—mail, claiming she was working to train journalists. and an e—mail, claiming she was richard lister reports. and an e—mail, claiming she was he and an e—mail, claiming she was is with me now. i

10:25 pm
bali is a major tourist destination and results are still open although many flights have been cancelled or diverted. however, the ash cloud is drifting east, towards the island of lompoc, and it's airport has been closed. we are trying to find out how to get out. indonesia is home to more than 130 active volcanoes, and sits on the pacific ring of fire, where there is frequent seismic and volcanic activity, mount agung is the most sacred mountain in meat back bali and the last interrupted was 1963, 1500 people died. —— the most sacred mountain in bali. this time around, no one is taking any chances. sailors from the royal navy have been performing the famous changing
10:26 pm
the guard ceremony outside buckingham palace in london for the first time in its 350 year history. the manoeuvres are usually carried out by a regiment from the army, as our correspondent jane—frances kelly explains. shortly before 11 this morning, sailors from the royal navy marched out of wellington barracks and into the history books. people from all over the world gathered to watch them enter the gates of buckingham palace. this temporary changeover from soldiers to sailors is part of a year—long celebration of the navy in the uk. leading them was lieutena nt—commander steve elliott, who's believed to be the first captain of the queen's guard from the royal navy since sir walter raleigh during the reign of elizabeth i. it's a great opportunity for the royal navy in what's been termed the year of the royal navy, to act as a capstone to everything we've had this year
10:27 pm
and also to coincide with the formal commissioning of hms queen elizabeth. my team have worked really, really hard to get themselves ready for it. it's not something we perhaps would be traditionally famous for in the navy, our marching. hms queen elizabeth is the royal navy‘ biggest warship. at the beginning of december the queen will travel to portsmouth to formally commission it into the royal fleet. another recruit to the service is alex stacey, who never dreamt she would be undertaking sentry duty at buckingham palace. i only joined in january and i finished all of my training injuly, so i'm still very new in the navy, so it's a great honour and privilege to be able to do something like this. sailors from the royal navy are also undertaking guard duty at st james's palace, the tower of london and tomorrow at windsor castle in what has been a very busy year for the service. the weather has rather flick flaked
10:28 pm
between the faces of autumn of late. you remember the floods in the north—west of england. things have calmed nicely for some but at the same time others have recorded this weekend their first snow of the season. and now we are about to change again, over my shoulder an area of low pressure coming during the course of the night. 30 to 40 mm in some places and windy, too. some gusts around 40 miles per hour. but really for the most part, within the body of that area of low pressure, the air is relatively mild. let's see how we are shaping up first thing on monday. some of the rain really quite heavy. a lot of surface water and spray around where. it stopped raining, to the north of the rain band but along the rain band heavy pulses,
10:29 pm
a303 territory to the a30. north of that, a mixture of sunny spells, particularly to the east of the pennines but there are plenty of showers to be had and again some of those really quite wintry in nature and we'll gang them together again across the far north of scotland. the tail end in the front north, taking time to pull away into the north sea. the wind a feature of the day. but the temperatures not as low as they are going to get, in the days to come. double figures across the south. that really is the last of the mild air because once the weather fronts have moved across the channel off into the near continent. that then opens the gate to a supply of cold air streaming down these isobars from well north of the british isles, so that is what is going to change our weather from the relatively mild airs of late sunday and monday, into something a good deal colder, as we get on into tuesday, wednesday and deed on into thursday. notice the supply of showers across northern and eastern parts of the british isles and off the irish sea, just through pembrokeshire into parts of the south—west, again some showers, even here turning wintry across higher ground. the wind really becoming a feature across eastern parts as we get on through the day.
10:30 pm
and, where we've got higher ground in the east, north york moors for example, lying snow and temperatures never better than about 7 and feeling much lower given the strength of the wind.
