9:00 pm
hello, welcome to outside source, we will begin in north carolina which is preparing for a huge storm. look at this, light images coming in where hurricane florence is starting to batter the united states. they found that 3000 people died due to the hurricane in puerto rico, he says that the democrats inflated the figures to make him look bad. the uk government has been quick to dismiss the suspects in the poisoning of sergei skripal. it said that they we re sergei skripal. it said that they were for us, that is deeply offensive to the victims. they graduated just as the financial crisis came, we will see what happened to some of them. we will begin the programme by
9:01 pm
focusing on hurricane florence. these pictures coming in from the bbc news from the north carolina first coastline and you can see the power of the storm which is already making itself apparent. florence, is now just hours making itself apparent. florence, is nowjust hours away from the east coast, a bit closer on the map, we can highlight the three states, north carolina, south carolina and to the north, virginia. this shows the course that the storm is taking as it comes across the atlantic. that live feed of that flag getting battered by a the winds. the scale of what is coming, this is a picture of what is coming, this is a picture of the storm taken from the air force plane that is tracking the storm to give meteorologist mark permission. this is a common occurrence, gas stations are running
9:02 pm
out be due to people heading out of town, people told to evacuate. this is what the authorities are concerned about, storm surges. these are not so big at the moment, but waves a re are not so big at the moment, but waves are expected to rise at about four metres, —— a0 it has been downgraded from a category a category two storm, you'll make your time is running out, the ocean is going to start rising along the coast and the sound areas within a matter of hours, your time to get out of those areas is coming toa time to get out of those areas is coming to a close. i cannot emphasise that enough. we even have warnings from space, on the international space station, he tweeted: he shared this picture, he said get
9:03 pm
prepared on the east coast, this is ano prepared on the east coast, this is a no kidding nightmare coming for you. despite those warnings, some people are choosing to stay. we have been of the other hurricanes, we are not trying to be rebels or anything like that but we feel like we have just as good a chance here as in town. wilmington north carolina. tropical storm force winds are pounding north carolina in those barrier islands out there, and we see some pictures out there on social media of the big storm surge and this is just social media of the big storm surge and this isjust from the outer rims of the hurricane, so what we are expecting between now and then is increasingly strong—willed rain and winds, just behind us, the island where there is a mandatory evacuation area, that bridges closed, browse speaking to you from
9:04 pm
yesterday. this is the closest to the coast that we can get as this monster storm approaches and the governor of north carolina has set the people, please, do not be complacent because it's been downgraded. as a powerful storm they can kill in the greatest threat is from the flooding that comes with prolonged rainfall. it looks deserted but is anyone there? not many people, most people have obeyed the evacuation order, but i talked toa the evacuation order, but i talked to a few people who desire to write it out. some of them have got, they think the forecast is going to change the last minute, the difficulty with the storm is that it has slowed down and much much wider, astronauts tweeting from space saying that it has turned into a monster, it is wider than the coast of north and south carolina
9:05 pm
combined. sojust of north and south carolina combined. so just imagine of north and south carolina combined. sojust imagine what impact that will have as the hmmfi impact that will have as the forecastjust impact that will have as the forecast just stalls impact that will have as the forecastjust stalls in impact that will have as the forecast just stalls in swells and dumps rain on us. it is the triple threat of the rain, the storm surge and the hurricane winds,. let's get more information on how to storm is shaping up, bbc weather, one of our meteorologist is looking at the latest information coming through. this storm is set, the satellite picture shows that the hurricane force winds are really bad, still off shore, the winds are not quite so ferocious on the coast yet but we are checking the wind gusts around 60 miles an hour something like that, so no big deal. the worst of the storm probably is not due for another 18 hours and the problem is, we're just talking about how large the storm is from space. if you look at it, i'm sure in his own men
9:06 pm
actually, a little bit across, across the atlantic. this is the entire east coast of the united states here and the winds are blowing into the storm, the problem with this is that it's pushing all that water in the direction of the coastline, and devise amendable bit more, you can see there are curves, the water piles up. and it's the sea defences that are preaching, the flooding, the rainfall on top of that, so this is going to be a rain and flooding event rather than the wind itself. so that is what is happening on the east coast. what is happening on the east coast. what is happening in the philippines? that is something very concerned about. it isa is something very concerned about. it is a satellite picture here as well, indicating basically how big the clouds are, and it looks almost at the doughnut here. the estimated winds around the eye are at the
9:07 pm
moment, blowing around nearly 200 miles an hourand moment, blowing around nearly 200 miles an hour and gusts. that's over 300 km an hour, any coastline that is in the firing line of the centre of the storm that is heading to northern parts, the damage of that will be apt salute be catastrophic. very few buildings in order the world —— very few buildings in that pa rt world —— very few buildings in that part of the world that can withstand that. the mountains there, the rainfall just gets excessive exacerbated by the rainfall, to serious storms. thank you very much indeed, the wiki get more information on bbc weather to the bbc weather app, that's the the correspondent in the philippines. the north of the philippines, it is the area where forecasters believe
9:08 pm
that these super typhoon will hit ha rd est that these super typhoon will hit hardest when it makes landfall in the coming days. it is quite windy here at the moment, the waves are quite high. they'll bring storm surges around two stories tall. this isa surges around two stories tall. this is a small town. the low—rise town and some of the residents here are talking about how they feel about the storm, they say that they have been through this before. they have seen other storms. it is somewhat alarming that the bigger presence by the local authorities telling people to move on. as it seems people here are very relaxed with the idea that is super typhoon is coming their way. to those of you who are facing the storms. do you remember this from back in july? the storms. do you remember this from back in july? which were seeing and reading is not what's happening. donald trump certainly believes that, while america braces itself for one hurricane, the president has offered to spread misinformation
9:09 pm
from the storm of last year. here is a tweet he said earlier. that is simply not true. there's no evidence that they sought to artificially inflate the death toll and it has gone up, the governor formally raised it from under 100, too close to 3000. that happened last month. he did so because he had commissioned this independent study by george washington university, they calculated the figure by including those who died in the six months that followed, due to the effects of the storm. that is common practise when calculating the death toll of the conflict or disaster. that is not the only independent study, you can look at the university website, published last
9:10 pm
july, it put the toll, so that is two nonpolitical independent studies. next, this is the republican house speaker, paul ryan. casualties don't make a person look bad, soi casualties don't make a person look bad, so i have no reason to dispute these numbers. iwasn't bad, so i have no reason to dispute these numbers. i wasn't order rico, it was devastated. this was a horrible storm. she said, trump says they manufactured the 3000 death toll. well, whether the president believes it or not, it's not true, while he has picked this fight now, we do not know, these next two clips may offer a clue, first of all, here is the president earlier this week. puerto rico is incredibly successful, it was actually our toughest one of all because it's an island, you have to do things by
9:11 pm
boat. that's not a view everyone shares. the federal response was widely criticised for being too little too late. the mayor of puerto rico's capital san juan has responded to the president's assessment. if he calls a success, or an unsung success, if he calls a success, or an unsung success, 3000 people dying on his watch, then he definitely does not know what success is. so there you have it — the man who has ultimate authority over the response to hurricane florence, is spreading untrue information about a previous response to a hurricane. we're going to turn to the financial crisis, those who graduate in 2008 at had the chance to reflect back on how the crisis affected the beginning of their working life. the retail office was down 99% on
9:12 pm
the previous year, £1.2 million, so charlie the company chairman told them that it has pledged to match rival prices among competition on the high street. but they were very clear reasons and they can track back to what is going on in the market. this has been the most promotional market that we have seen at least for ten years, and the biggest single reason for declining profits. so all of your rifles, or have giant discounts. this year, last year on a promotional year, but there is been twice as many extravaganzas as the war year ago, and we are never undersold, so close we're matching that.
9:13 pm
0ur lead story is? two massive hurricanes are about to make landfall — florence is hours away from the east coast of the us and mangkhut will hit the philippines on saturday. people are being urged to evacuate the areas. vladimir putin has described russia's biggest military exercises since the cold war as purely defensive and denied that his country had aggressive plans. it may be worth noting that in march it'll be five years since russia annexed crimea from ukraine. (00v) (pres) the russian protest group, ‘pussy riot‘ is claiming that the russian protest group, ‘pussy riot‘ is claiming that one of its members may have been poisoned. the activist fell seriously ill, after a court hearing on tuesday. pyotr verzilov was jailed for 15 days for invading the pitch during the world cup final to protest about human rights abuses in russia.
9:14 pm
bbc russian. a lot of pepole are sharing this online. a french art college has apologised after one of its promotional images was doctored to make it look like they had more black students. the college in lyon says the original image, with fewer black faces, was changed by a pr firm without their knowledge. she has been charged with killing her unarmed neighbour, she was 26 yea rs old her unarmed neighbour, she was 26 years old with a successful business at his funeral was held today. a lot of people are sharing this image of him and paying tribute to him. she told police that she thought he was in her apartment when in fact she went to the wrong apartment. another unarmed african—american has been shot dead by a white police officer. this was earlier. the unlike what do
9:15 pm
we want? justice! want more police accountability, the protest last night as well. frustration, anger and a thirst for justice. night as well. frustration, anger and a thirst forjustice. i am tired of these rallies, i am tired of seeing our unarmed black man murdered like they were animals. i wa nt murdered like they were animals. i want accountability and i want justice. she was believing she had encountered a burglar across the room in her apartment it goes on to state that she drew her firearm and gave verbal command. but a lawyer for the victim‘s family say two went two witnesses, save. then there were gunshots. you‘ll
9:16 pm
find extensive coverage of the story on the website of the texas 0bserver, but speak to the civil rights reporter, who joins 0bserver, but speak to the civil rights reporter, whojoins us now. thank you very much for your time. help us understand more about these circumstances, it seems on the unbelievable that they would get mixed up in which apartment to rent. that is the story so far that we have gotte n that is the story so far that we have gotten from the officer, that she was essentially confused and thought she was on the wrong floor after getting off for shift in the police department. it should be noted that this apartment complex is just a block away from the headquarters, so extensively, she left work according to the statement, she gave authorities, she parked on the wrong floor, went to the apartment that she thought was
9:17 pm
hers, she says that the door was slightly ajar are open, which is how she got in then first place. and then... shejust she got in then first place. and then... she just essentially said there was a, we don‘t know of was a confrontation but she said she made some verbal commands, it sounds very much like a police officer statement after an officer involved shooting, to be frank. so you know we‘ve heard from her side, as you said, the attorneys on the case representing his family, we know they say there are contradictory witness accounts that they have provided law enforcement, that they are aware of and yet, the document so far, it only gives the officer‘s account. so really at this point, a lot more questions than answers. is there broader context in texas or dallas
9:18 pm
with regards to racial tension between the police and african—americans? between the police and african-americans? right. as you played at the start of the programme, there have been protests in dallas, disruptions. during dallas city council meetings, to draw attention to this case and shutting down the regular order of business. people are really frustrated, dallas has a history of these type of shootings. thing is, in recent history, dallas has charged police officers for problematic shootings. just days before the shooting took place, there was an officer in the dallas area who went on trial for murder, for killing a 15—year—old unarmed black kid. and he was convicted. it was a sigh of relief among advocates and maybe something changed, prosecutors had presented that case
9:19 pm
as an example that the system and a longer tolerate this. and then days later, the shooting happened and just, there‘s a lot of that narrative in question i think. thank you very much, you can read michael‘s report on the website. turkey‘s central bank has raised its main interest rate in a bid to bolster its tumbling currency. it‘s main interest rate is now a whopping 24% it‘s all part of efforts to try and stop the lira from falling — it‘s lost 38% of its value since the beginning of the year. and the central bank decision was a bold one — it came after president erdogan repeated his opposition to higher rates. emre temel from bbc turkish explains. it seems that the central bank took a bold step, they took it for two reasons, for the central bank, it wa nts to
9:20 pm
reasons, for the central bank, it wants to reduce inflation. i think this is a very important factor, i just came back from turkey yesterday and, everyone is saying that 2018 is the most difficult year for ordinary turkish people since the economy crisis of 2001. the current situation has generally been described as a currency crisis, but it is absolutely potential to escalate. china has welcomed an invitation by the us to a new round of talks — to try and resolve the ongoing trade war between the countries. but president trump has been keen to point that it‘s not a sign of american weakness. kim gittleson in new york tell me more. they‘ve got quite a lot to talk about? yes they do. we have seen a president donald trump has threatened to tax chinese imports, but it seems like these
9:21 pm
talks can be ruined before they get off the ground. we saw from washington that the treasury secretary was making overtures to china to reopen trade discussions ended today saw that donald trump was tweeting thing, the us felt no pressure to make a deal. as ever, when it comes to the trade war between the worlds two biggest powers, we have to take a wait and see approach to seo plays out. iq you‘ve made made a report about the global crisis, i‘ve even informed that you are in that class. global crisis, i‘ve even informed that you are in that classlj global crisis, i‘ve even informed that you are in that class. i am. but it‘s been fascinating to me is the financial crisis is not necessarily bankers that went to jail, it‘s some of the bankers and effects in on the generation, here‘s what i heard from some of my fellow graduates from the class. in 2008 1.5 million students graduated from
9:22 pm
the university here, and stepped right into the worst financial crisis since the great depression. i am one of them and like everyone else, i was caught off guard since no one seemed to see it coming. i have been travelling across the united states to ask my fellow 2008 graduates what happened to us. first stop, las vegas. so talk to me a little bit about the lead up to when you graduated in 2008. what was going to your mind? in las vegas, i was seeing a lot of people foreclosing on their homes, not being able to find jobs or being let go from jobs. grateful to find work in 2008, she has been the same job for the past decade. and that is that consequences. do you think you would have had children sooner had the economy been better had you been more financially secure? the economy been better had you been more financially secure ?|j the economy been better had you been more financially secure? i think so. i spent the last decade concentrating on getting a stable
9:23 pm
career, saving enough money. now they‘re expecting their first baby. like nora, a lot of us decided to wait to have kids. since the financial crisis there have been 4.8 million fewer babies born then people were expecting. and that is not the only thing that happened to us. dominique graduated from howard university 2008. they told me i could take my bachelors and do anything with it. but she found there were nojobs. anything with it. but she found there were no jobs. to not be able to land the job that you feel like you deserve and feel like, you've worked hard academically to get this, it was hard! but it is not all bad news. the financial crisis taught our generation an important lesson. those who graduated in 2008 really learned the hard way that you need to be patient and you need to stay humble when you're thinking
9:24 pm
about your career. for a generation once described as selfish and self—absorbed, ten years off in the financial crisis, when asked what the biggest change had been, the a nswer the biggest change had been, the answer just might be the biggest change had been, the answerjust might be off. —— us. about the 30 to 39—year—olds in the uk are earning now last been 30 to 39—year—olds would have earned ten yea rs 39—year—olds would have earned ten years ago. it is i think tommy can find more on live pictures coming from cape fear. in north carolina, this is even before hurricane florence properly arrives. this term is be taken seriously, the biggest in almost 30 yea rs seriously, the biggest in almost 30 years and you hear the warnings in start seeing pictures like that you start seeing pictures like that you start to understand and bear in
9:25 pm
mind, the storm is not arrive properly yet. north carolina will see first in south carolina and can expect to see it to. emergency services are present, but many have been told to leave because petrol stations are running out. we will see huge tales of traffic leaving the states. in the next half of outside source, will be talking about how last week we talked about the journalists club in jail for breaking the secrets act it was widely condemned. she has said nothing for the first half but she has spoken and i will play which he said. the powerful hurricane florence is
9:26 pm
close so from now on it will deteriorate the weather in from thursday and friday morning it is likely to find its way into the coastline and it is a huge storm and the winds spread about 160 km, that‘s the entire length of the carolina to entire coastline could have destructive winds that clearly many eastern states will feel the effect was some strong winds, heavy rain and that storm surge so even though the winds, and categorisation is taking it down to two, it is stilljust as much a threat because of the amount of rain were going to see and that storm surge, the height of the single—story building and up to 1000, 100,000 mm that is single—story building and up to 1000,100,000 mm that is a metre, thatis 1000,100,000 mm that is a metre, that is about a years worth for some parts of that area. so it is going to cause a severe threat, and major impact. we also have the remnants of
9:27 pm
storm isaac heading towards the system, flooding rains and it really looks quite wet across texas for the next couple of days, but clearly the story we have to keep posted on nine to deny on it. consider whether picking up through colombia and venezuela, towards several parts of brazil, some warmth in the forecast across the south of africa, nice sunshine but we could see bit of rain, some showers further north across northern parts of africa and i'll across northern parts of africa and i‘ll come back to that later on this week to europe as well, so this is a violent typhoon, at the top level that you get and that is typhoon which is also called in the philippines, they have a different naming system in the philippines but is the most powerful storm that we have seen so far and again, it‘s going to cost structure of winds, huge storm surge and an awful lot of rainfall as it makes impact through friday night and into saturday morning, so that is another major
9:28 pm
storm watching it pops back out after 12 hours and had its way towards southern parts of china and vietnam. so that will be a very powerful storm that will cause some destructive weather. of course, europe we have still got someone painting a on in the south, —— hanging on. in contrast it is very much further north with the weather system rolling off the atlantic, you can see in scandinavia, you can feel that to the uk, summer rain to the west to this weekend. some details, to be quite stormy beginning next week there‘ll be more on that and about half an hour‘s time. hello, i‘m ros atkins. this is 0utside source. two massive hurricanes are about to make landfall — florence is hours away from the east coast of the us, mangkhut will hit the philippines on saturday.
9:29 pm
we have the latest on both. an independent study says 3,000 people died from hurricane maria last year. president trump has come out and said he does not believe that figure and the democrats and to make him look bad. the uk government says claims the suspects in the poisoning of a russian ex—spy were only in the uk as tourists are lies and "deeply offensive". and we‘ll learn why a concert by the singer dua lipa in shanghai was interrupted. it turns out they were not doing much wrong, just dancing. no surprise. the uk government quickly dismissed the explanations that we‘ve heard from these two men it accused of carrying out the salisbury attack. they‘ve given an interview to the russian state—funded aarti network. translation: our friends have been suggesting for some time
9:30 pm
that we visit this wonderful town. salisbury, a wonderful town? translation: yes. there is the famous salisbury cathedral, famous not only in europe but in the whole world. it‘s famous for its 123 metre spire, its clock, one of the first ever created in the world that is still working. just two russian guys on a quick trip to see this spire. the interview on the network rt. downing street did not take much time. it said... let‘s have a look at the movements of these two men according to british investigators. they flew in to gatwick airport on friday, march 2nd and stayed here in east london, staying in this hotel.
9:31 pm
on saturday, they went to salisbury, intending they say to see the cathedral — but they never made it. this is a quote from the interview. they did not the weather. they say there was "muddy slush everywhere". just for comparison‘s sake, we got bbc weather to do this for us. the average march weather temperature in moscow is minus 5.1 degrees. in salisbury, it‘s on average ten degrees warmer. you might think they could handle the weather but it put them off. he retreated back to london, but we know they went to salisbury, a journey which takes more than two hours. we know because they were caught on cctv footage while they we re caught on cctv footage while they were there. they say they did get around to visiting the cathedral. the british police say the reason he went back was to put nerve agent on
9:32 pm
the front door of sergei skripal, something those two men very much tonight. having gone to salisbury and seen the cathedral, they may be and seen the cathedral, they may be an immediate decision to leave the uk. that‘s where they are now. as could the analysis. bbc russia‘s 0leg boldyrev‘s. we see the reaction from outside russia was very sceptical. authorities in the uk said itjust shows the russian tactics is the same of the station and lies. if the interview was designed to impress the russians inside the country, the choice of the medium, the giant broadcaster meant to work for foreign audiences, was very strange. the interview did not look very staged. the interviewer was asking quite pointed questions. she perhaps was not asking them hard enough. it did not look too much choreographed.
9:33 pm
we see they look very uncomfortable. they don‘t want to answer these questions. severaltimes, they don‘t want to answer these questions. several times, they were answering, "let‘s leave the subject alone, let‘s not go into these details and let‘s not provide private life. " they said at details and let‘s not provide private life. "they said at one point, we thank you for protection because our life has been rooted this point. again, the interviewer was pressing them into a particular business. they said they do not want to name their business. we don‘t want to bring more people into this story. a lot of people wondering why they travelled to europe and whether it was for business orfor leisure. europe and whether it was for business or for leisure. again,
9:34 pm
europe and whether it was for business orfor leisure. again, very uncomfortable. in flying, yes, we went to switzerland but this was not only for business but for pleasure. but, yes, we do business in switzerland, working with a sports nutrition. at one point, the interviewer suggested this would be thejob from now interviewer suggested this would be the job from now on, to interviewer suggested this would be thejob from now on, to go interviewer suggested this would be the job from now on, to go to talk shows, and this is the reality which these two men face. thanks to 0leg. a week and a half on, two reuters journalists were jailed in myanmar, we‘ve finally heard from aung san suu kyi. the court decided they had broken the official secrets act. if we believe in the rule of law, they have every right to appeal the decision and point out what the judgement was wrong. the un has called the verdict "outrageous". clearly she does not share those
9:35 pm
concerns. talking about these two men. wa lone and kyaw soe 0o discovered evidence of a massacre of rohingya boys and men in rakhine state last year. now those two journalists are in jail. these pictures are from monday last week. they were sentenced to 7 years for possession of police documents. they say they were set up, something a police witness agreed with during their trial. in a new report on tuesday, the un accused the government of "waging a campaign against journalists". remember aung san suu kyi says it has nothing to do with journalism. she might be a minority in that. a picture being shared online. here‘s a picture of the newsroom at the new yorker magazine. and we‘ve heard from the eu‘s foreign affairs chief. to go towards democratic system in
9:36 pm
country and they deserve better than this. they deserve a country where journalists are free to do theirjob and to keep the state institutions accountable for their actions. and it is ofa accountable for their actions. and it is of a country where all citizens, all of them, have the same rights, whatever their faith in citizens, all of them, have the same rights, whatever theirfaith in the background. when the pair were arrested, reuters decided to publish the story all the same. the headline reads... there were pictures, too, some too graphic to show. also this one showing the men and boys on the day they die. after it was published, the burmese military accepted this happened. seven soldiers were convicted of "contributing and participating in murder". what happened in this one village was part of a much pillar crackdown that happen elsewhere in myanmar
9:37 pm
that happen elsewhere in myanmar that led to thousands of people fleeing, many across the border into bangladesh. her member on 0utside source, we covered this last month, where the un concluded myanmar leaders must face genocide charges for what happened. and aung san suu kyi was asked about this today. if heinz second that we might think the situation could‘ve been handled better, but we believe that for the sake of long—term stability and security, we have to be fair to all sides. the role of lummus apply to everybody. we cannot choose and pick whom should be subjected to the rule of law. reuters has responded to aung san suu kyi‘s comments saying its journalists didn‘t do anything wrong. but that‘s not how it‘s seen in myanmar. this is fascinating. moe myint from bbc burmese. in myanmar, we have seen mixed
9:38 pm
reactions. the ruling of the court is nothing to do with freedom of expression, but the journalists feel this ruling has threatened their freedom of expression, but in general public, they think the journalists are traitors, they are working only her money and they are only reporting on rohingya people rather than the human rights abuses of other people committed by the same military. in myanmar, rohingya people are seen as illegal immigrants into their villages. you can see more of this on our website as long —— along with the main stories of the day. pope francis continues his efforts to contain the sex abuse scandal in the catholic church.
9:39 pm
today, he‘s met american bishops at the vatican. and those bishops released a statement afterwards, saying the catholic church in the us "is lacerated by the evil of sexual abuse." this meeting ties into another element of the story. last month, this former vatican official published this letter claiming that pope francis had personally rehabilitated a disgraced american archbishop, with full knowledge of his history of sexual abuse. james reynolds has more from rome. there is a crisis in the church, and that crisis is based around child abuse. around the fact that investigations in the united states and in other countries have found that there has been widespread abuse of children, of students, by catholic priests and that that abuse has been covered up. because that has been covered up. because that has centred on the united states recently, the bishops in the united states, the most senior clerics in that country, have decided that there is a need for a proper vatican
9:40 pm
investigation to be inaugurated by the pope, and that‘s what they have come here. previously, and up to now, when there have been cases of abuse, the vatican has dealt with them on a case—by—case basis, occasionally insisting that problem is settled in a certain country. now the pope is calling to get a bishops, suggesting the vatican wa nts to bishops, suggesting the vatican wants to have a global approach to what they now accept as a global problem and survivors of abuse and indeed survivors of abuse to once worked as vatican advisers say they continually were frustrated by the vatican‘s refusal to do this, to have one set of standards for abuse across the world. it may be that this is what the vatican is now approaching with the survivors now not trusting the church any more. we will like to see what happens. —— we will like to see what happens. —— we will wait to see what happens. world leaders paid respect to kofi annan at his funeral in ghana. this is the end of three days of mourning which saw thousands
9:41 pm
of ghanaians file past his coffin as it lay in state in the capital, accra. bbc‘s mayeni jones was at the funeral service. for many, kofi like you and all time, kofi annan to bring people together, put them at ease and unite them towards a common goal for our common them towards a common goal for our common amenities. -- our common humanity. there was an old joke. the art of diplomacy is to say nothing, especially when you‘re speaking. kofi annan could say everything, sometimes without uttering a word. there was also a tribute by the canadian president but the most moving words came from those who knew him best, his family stop his legacy will live on his foundation and in all of us. my love, you are now back home, starting your long journey. may you rest in peace and may your wisdom and compassion
9:42 pm
continue to inspire us and guide us wherever we are. mr a nonpartisan body has laid in state for the past two days, as mourners come to be their last respects —— mr kofi annan. he was a proud ...the the auditory behind me they can sit 4000 was filled beyond capacity. mayeni reporting from accra. brexit pressure continues to mount. today, the uk published more of its contingency plans in case there is no deal with the eu. and it‘s really getting into the nitty—gritty of it. for instance,
9:43 pm
here‘s what happens with driving in the year. we are told... that costs about five pounds and you can get it from the post office, so not the end of the world. but not as simple as it currently is. this perhaps of more concern to people in the eu. that sounds dramatic. it‘s difficult to judge, though. two of the main mobile networks say they‘ll stick to current arrangements. what you‘re seeing here is the government trying to balance a number of different pressures, reassuring people that no deal will be ok, telling the eu no deal is an option. let‘s hear from be ok, telling the eu no deal is an option. let‘s hearfrom some people in london. i think it‘sjust i think it‘s just a little bit unfairto i think it‘s just a little bit unfair to charge people for using their phone abroad. it should not cause the operator that much. i think the eu policy on it was quite

good. they may well not roaming charges on and look to encourage other charges in hidden ways. they had to make a living but so do we. asi as i was saying, what were seeing here with all these documents being released in 18 of them, is the government trying to walk a fine line. it needs to show the eu it is willing to consider no deal, but it doesn‘t want to alarm people about what that might mean. here‘s the brexit secretary. ...to to manage those risks and avoid them where possible. 0r mitigate them. that‘s but we‘re confident we‘ve got.

leila, what are your impressions? it's leila, what are your impressions? it‘s an attempt by the government to reassure people that as the clock tix, as the deadline looms come in the event there is no deal to be done, we‘ve made all these preparations, we got it covered sector by sector, so they are releasing these documents in bunches and is now the second budget documents we‘ve got covering all theseissues documents we‘ve got covering all these issues that you mentioned. there are a few major areas still to be released, including aviation, what happens to plans in the uk and eu. that's one that has raised a lot of questions but i think this is now the government is aiming for. they‘re very keen, they have very stressed that. this about reassurance to people, to say, we have done all this. downing street saying plans we ramped up further for no deal as we get to the six

months to go marker. as you say, it‘s clear it‘s a signal to the eu that britain is prepared to walk away from the table without a deal and that remains in negotiating cod in the government‘s eyes. and that remains in negotiating cod in the government's eyes. help me out the issue of the divorce bill. the brexit secretary suggesting the uk will pay less if there is no deal. but i thought the whole point of the divorce bill was that the uk was paying up long—term commitments it had. does that not applying any circumstance? the line from the government has always been that nothing is agreed until everything is agreed. the offer of the divorce settle m e nt is agreed. the offer of the divorce settlement has always been the government‘s eyes been tied to an agreement on everything else. that also remains in negotiating tactic to say we‘re going to withhold some the money if nothing is agreed. but there would still clearly be some kind of settlement but the

to be the one trying to get this deal in place, but this autumn is clearly going to be the time when whatever deal comes back or if no deal comes back at all from brussels, or if the deal does come back and it is rejected by parliament, clearly that‘ll be a time of danger for theresa may. thank you very much, taking us through it, day by day exits on brexit on the bbc of course. here is a report about confessional footballers, who of course spend a great deal of money on clothes. —— professional the one british teenager is helping some of the premiership‘s top players source the designer contents of their wardrobe. sam morgan is his name, he‘s 17 years old, and this is his story. i enjoy getting the deal. every player is on whatsapp. money into this through quickly. i‘ve always been telling... i‘m doing on a much
