1:34 pm
against a us team who have six of the world's top ten. europe are looking to regain the cup after losing it at hazeltine two years ago, and ian poulter is back after missing that defeat through injury. he says he's taken inspiration from tiger woods incredible comeback, and he knows what it feels like to refind your form, and what an incentive it is to chase a place in the ryder team. i guess when you are at the lowest of lows and that wasn't that long ago, there is a little, you know, little voice in the back of your head that, you know, kind of says, you might not quite get back to as good as you were. i felt, you know, if i work hard, if i refocus and properly restructure things, then i definitely could make this ryder cup team which i have. so i'm pretty proud. the man at the heart of the us team is, of course, tiger woods, who won his first pga tour title for five years
1:35 pm
over the weekend. but his record at the ryder cup is less than glowing — 13 wins and 17 losses in 33 matches. in the past his critics have said he's not a team player — but his long battle to return to top form may well have changed that. england's most capped player, fara williams, is back in phil neville‘s squad for two upcoming internationals next month. injury kept her out of the last round of fixtures when england secured their qualification for next year's world cup. the lionesses continue their preparation for the tournament in france, with matches against brazil on october the 6th, and then australia three days later. it's teacher against pupil in the third round of the league cup this evening, when derby take on manchester united. derby boss frank lampard says jose mourinho was "hugely influential" on his career when they were both at chelsea. lampard and mourinho face each other from the dug—out for the first time tonight — kick—off is at eight o' clock.
1:36 pm
it will be great to see him and to chat. he will be supported in terms of my managerial career. not for tuesday night. jose mourinho will spawn a lot of managers. whatever club you played for underneath him, you will see players becoming managers. i appreciate the support. i have got a lot of support from a lot of the managers i have worked with. it's been a mixed morning for great britain at the world judo championships in baku — the world number two natalie powell is out early butjemima yeats—brown still has a chance of a medal. yeats—brown won two bouts in the under 78 kilo division this morning — and although she lost her quarter—final, she could still win bronze through the repecharge. britain's natalie powell, who's ranked second in the world, has been knocked out of the world judo championships in just the third round. she was beaten slovenia's klara apoteker in the under 78 kilo category, who threw her for ippon. she won bronze last year, and was bidding to become wales‘s first world champion, but admitted she'd "messed up".
1:37 pm
i don't think i started the fight particularly well. i got caught. i mean, yeah, i came in in a good shape. yeah. you come into some competitions and you feel rubbish and everything has gone wrong, and you get good results. when everything goes right before you expect the result. it hasn't come on this occasion. that's all the sport for now. you can find more on all those stories on the bbc sport website. i will be back with more in the next hour. thank you. let's get more now from labour's party conference in liverpool, where the party's shadow brexit secretary told delegates that "nobody s ruling out remain" as an option if brexit comes to a further public vote. he told members that labour would likely reject any brexit deal based on theresa may's chequers plan. a vague or blind brexit
1:38 pm
is a deep to nowhere and we will have no part in it. —— a leap to nowhere. now conference, let's be clear. this is not about frustrating the process. it is about stopping a destructive tory brexit. it is about fighting for our values and it is about fighting for our country. applause. and conference, when it comes to that vote in parliament, we do not accept, we do not accept that the choice is between whatever the prime minister manages to cobble together or no deal. that is not a meaningful vote. between really bad and even worse?
1:39 pm
no deal would be a catastrophe. and no government has the right to plunge our country into chaos because of their own failures. so, if parliament votes down the prime minister's deal, or she can't reach a deal, that is not the end of the debate. and labour must step up and shape what happens next. our preference is clear. we want a general election to sweep away this failed government. cheering. and conference, having swept them away, we want to install a radical labour government capable of transforming this country.
1:40 pm
and that is what should happen after two years of negotiations ending in failure. but if that's not possible, we must have other options. and conference, that must include campaigning for a public vote. cheering. conference, it's right that parliament has the first say. it's right that parliament has the first say. but if we need to break the impasse are options must include campaigning for a public vote and nobody is ruling out remain as an option. cheering. and conference...
1:41 pm
sir kier starmer, the shadow brexit secretary in liverpool. the bodies of a british man and his wife have been found buried in the garden of their home in northern thailand, after going missing a week ago. thai police say two men have been arrested and charged with murder of alan hogg and his wife, nod suddaen, and a third, the wife s brother, has been charged with conspiring to commit murder and theft. the british embassy in bangkok said they are in contact with thai authorities and providing support to the family. in a moment we'll have all the business news, but first the headlines on bbc news. labour's brexit spokesman has given his strongest indication yet, that his party will vote down the government's brexit plans. ministers agree that the immigration system after brexit,
1:42 pm
should give no special treatment to eu citizens. the bodies of a uk millionaire and his thai wife have been found in northern thailand, nearly a week after what police suspect was a contract killing. hello. i'm susannah streeter with the business news. us fashion giant michael kors has confirmed that it's buying the italian fashion house versace. the £1.6 billion deal has outraged some fans of the brand. creative director donatella versace has run versace since the 1997 murder of her brother, gianni. she called the sale a "very exciting moment" that allows versace to reach its full potential. the summer heatwave led to stronger—than—expected sales at next in the first six months of the year. the clothing retailer says that means it will raise its profit forecast for the year by £10 million. the co—founders of
1:43 pm
photo—sharing giant instagram are both leaving the firm after reports the two disagreed with owners facebook. instagram was bought by facebook in 2012 for £760 million, and now has more than one billion users. let's get more on that story now about the co—founders of instagram leaving the social media giant. kevin systrom and mike krieger said they were departing the firm, to "explore our curiosity and creativity again". systrom and kriegerd started the image sharing site in 2010. they continued to run the service after it was bought by facebook in 2012 for $1 billion — that's about £760m. however, there have been numerous reports of disagreements between the founders and facebook‘s board. instagram currently has one billion users and is expanding, whereas growth at facebook has slowed. joining us now is our technology reporter, zoe kleinman.
1:44 pm
is this a rift over creativity and the direction of instagram, do you think? it is certainly an interesting choice of phrase. we want to explore our curiosity and creativity again, they say. that suggests they cannot do it at facebook. two years after facebook bought instagram for $1 billion, it bought whatsapp for a $19 billion. there was a feeling that maybe they sold out too soon and should have held out for more money. there is also the issue of facebook making instagram a much more complicated platform. it introduced video, it introduced advertising, all of which went against the ethos of the platform as it was developed in 2010. they wa nted it was developed in 2010. they wanted to keep it simple. facebook wa nted wanted to keep it simple. facebook wanted to keep it simple. facebook wanted to make money and had other ideas. but for any founders, dancing to the tune of another firm must be difficult, and it certainly isn t unusual to see founding partners leaving after they ve
1:45 pm
completed the required number of years under any deal? imean, i mean, actually you could say they hung on in theirfirst i mean, actually you could say they hung on in their first six years and by all accounts they were incredibly hands—on. they could have taken the money and run but they didn't. that shows they continue to be passionate about the product. they have now said they will build something else. what will that be? it would be very interesting to watch them step away from the boundaries of facebook and perhaps we discovered the freedom to create something new from scratch. just how important is instagram to facebook now in terms of growing active daily users? facebook has had a really bad year. it has had a lot of bad headlines. data breaches, struggling to contain some very controversial material that keeps appearing on the site. instagram has been a beacon of good news. when facebook boarded it had 30 million. now it has1 billion users. it is quite a successful
1:46 pm
project for facebook to have. what it probably wants to do now is tightening its grip further. now it can put a facebook executive in charge and steward in the direction the parent company wants it to go. what is that direction? what will we see more or less off on the site? facebook wants to make more money out of it. that means more advertising, introducing more features, things like video, which we re features, things like video, which were not on it before but have proved popular with younger users, who are not coming to facebook‘s original platform. the demographic is ageing. instagram is young. they wa nt to is ageing. instagram is young. they want to keep that core audience engaged. many thanks for the update. charlotte tilbury is the founder of one of the most popular make—up labels right now. having received about 80 global awards in just four years, it's the fastest growing beauty brand and she is the most googled makeup artist of 2016. earlier, charlotte tilbury told bbc breakfast that she faced a lot of criticism going into a highly competitive market.
1:47 pm
when i launched the brand in selfridge's i have 200 people queueing from day one. it was about being easy—to—use and giving people the locks. it was the mentality, i really used social media. i kept thinking, how can i put myself inside someone's make—up bag? i am one person, want to give myself to the world. i had it myself to these amazing celebrities. it was about bottling myself and the product. charlotte tilbury. joining us now is grace bowden, a reporter for retail week. you heard charlotte tilbury explaining that really social media certainly has helped her domination. do you think that is the case for the other up and coming brands, who are stealing a march on their established rivals? i think that is
1:48 pm
a huge factor, the ability to get online and reach clients and loyal customers really quickly. the internet has helped with that as has the —— social media. it means it is a much more accessible market and brands that previously could only get in front of the customer by being on a department store shelf can now circumvent that path. what does that mean for those established retailers on the high street where beauty is their business? are they worried? i would imagine yes, there will be some nervousness from established players. the likes of boots, debenhams. there is a lot of effort to tie up with millennial focus beauty brands that have a lot of buzz around them online. charlotte tilbury being an obvious example. it is certainly a really interesting environment. the trick is to make sure that you have the most savvy instagram worthy brands on your shelves. that is a good way to draw shoppers in. these brands
1:49 pm
don't need retailers in a way they once did. it is much more of a level playing field. we just talked earlier about instagram's founder leaving and facebook perhaps taking instagram in another direction. it wa nts to instagram in another direction. it wants to make more money. how does that then play into the beauty business if people feel these are ads they are seeing rather than real influences were not been paid? that will be an interesting line for them. the whole thing is it comes back to authenticity. as soon as people feel they are being sold to, they have a sense of switching off. if you look at the brands that have done really well, charlotte tilbury etc, they have combined the ability to sell their products and make them look good, and showing their shoppers how to use them and engage. it feels like a conversation rather than someone being sold to. thank you, grace. let's check in with the financial markets now, and britain's top share index — the blue chip ftse 100 — edged up
1:50 pm
thanks to a surge in oil stocks as crude prices hit a four—year high. royal dutch shell and bp were among those to benefit, amid looming us sanctions against iran and an apparent reluctance by opec and russia to raise output to offset the expected hit to supply. in retail, next stole the spotlight after a strong update confounded expectations. shares rose steeply after it raised its full—year profit forecast, and struck a more optimistic tone on a no—brexit deal. it said it was prepared for lots of different scenarios. that's all the business news. thank you. ellie soutter was one of britain's most promising snowboarders.
1:51 pm
last year, she won bronze at the youth olympic winter festival. but injuly, on her 18th birthday, ellie took her own life. her family think she was struggling to cope with the pressure — especially how much money it was costing to compete. her father tony's been speaking to victoria derbyshire about a foundation launched in her memory to help young athletes with funding. she got very upset because she missed a flight to a training camp, and therefore turned up late, very late in the evening. and then found out she didn't have the right clothing with her because i hadn't packed bag properly. just one thing after another, really. that really upset her. she knew she was wasting money from sponsors and money from me personally. that did upset her.
1:52 pm
but when she came back from that she seemed to bounce back and was in very good spirits the night before, the day before she took her life, yeah. what about the pressures on young athletes who are trying to make it to the top, including elie? you have driven her thousands of kilometres to competition. there isn't much funding from the organisation. it is tough, isn't it? yeah, it is. when you think these young children have given up so much. in early‘s case and the case of other athletes, they have to give up of other athletes, they have to give up normal schooling. they are home—schooled. they are missing a lot of friendships they would normally have. they can't party with their friends because they need to be young athletes. they are alone of the time because they are travelling the time because they are travelling the world just with coaches and
1:53 pm
other people like that. also, the physical side of it is a mass aspect. —— massive aspect. you have to keep fit. then you have the pressures of keeping up your stance within your competitive rain. if you number one or number two in the world, you need to maintain that position. that is a lot of pressure. there are massive pressures on these young athletes that aren't being seen as such. what is your own belief about why your daughter took her life? you can look into lots of things. both the rain and i come back and say, what if? you could go through those all day, every day for the rest of your life. but you can't really do that. there is one big thing that has come to light since
1:54 pm
ea rly‘s thing that has come to light since early‘s death, which is something called cte, cerebral traumatic ember losses. —— mu losses. it has happened a massive amount in the nfl football league in america. happened a massive amount in the nfl football league in americam happened a massive amount in the nfl football league in america. it is related to concussion? yeah. u nfortu nately, related to concussion? yeah. unfortunately, elie had several concussions in her sporting career. the father of ellie simmonds. archaeologists have found a 400—year—old shipwreck off the coast of portugal. the team believe the ship was returning from india when it sank sometime between 1575 and 1625. spices, ceramics and cannons engraved with portugal's coat of arms all lie around the wreck, found near the capital, lisbon. police are used to emergency call outs — but they usually involve human beings. in peru, officers have come to the aid of two rather different creatures found lost and bewildered, in a rural town. lebo diseko has the story. a search and rescue of a different
1:55 pm
kind. police in peru on the trail of two runaways. a pair of humboldt penguins found wandering the streets and taken in by someone who lived nearby. translation: when i found the penguins one had wire around its foot. i kept them at my brother—in—law‘s house for three days. but they aren't eating anything and i can't watch them, so i called the police. the officers collected the birds, who locals nicknamed after khartoum penguins in the film madagascar. it is not the first time penguins of this kind have been found on the streets of this area. it is on the coast by the pacific ocean. but this pair certainly seem to have made a lasting impression. they were taken to alternative accommodation, given something to eat and some tlc. they are now being looked after by
