are ‘slightly‘ bigger... traditional ‘snake boats' are up to 35 metres in length and have crews of around 100 paddlers each — as they race through punnamada lake in kerala. 80 teams took part on sunday with a nearby boat club taking first place — followed by a crew of local police officers. the nehru trophy race started in 1952 but the snake boat races can be dated back as far as the 13th century. that's all from sportsday. we'll have more throughout the evening. the pressure facing the minister on the cabinet to back—up brexit proposals. they are joined to hammer
6:52 pm
out a deal by wednesday, in order to get eu leaders to agreed by the end of november. in the last half hour theresa may has arrived at guildhall in central london. for this evening lord mayor's banquet. this is the traditional follow—up in the wake of the annual speech on foreign policy, mrs may suspected,... to comment on the skripal case. there she is, with her husband, philip me. our correspondent, vicki young, is also at guildhall. correspondent, vicki young, is also at guild hall. inevitably, correspondent, vicki young, is also at guildhall. inevitably, given the attention on brexit, people will be interested to know what the prime minister has got to say on that, but she is taking a wider canvas hearing this speech? yes, this is traditionally a wider kind of speech about world affairs, really, and last year, there was quite a big
6:53 pm
focus on russia and the uk's relationship with russia, and i think, again, that will feature this year, and of course what happened in salisbury will be a part of that. so, of course, took theresa may talking about how the international community came together to condemn the salisbury incident, but she will also be saying that the frosty relationship that russia and the uk have at the moment is not the one that the uk once. she will be saying that the uk once. she will be saying that if they change their behaviour, we will respond in kind. really try to urge russia to end that broken relationship. but there will of course be referenced to brexit, whatever is said it will be pored to see as to whether the right any clues as to where we are in this endless waiting game. tomorrow, there will be a weekly cabinet meeting, but no suggestion really that any nuke documents are there to be put in front of cabinet ministers. but it is the case —— any

new documents. there is a suggestion that some ministers are frustrated, that some ministers are frustrated, that she needs to walk away from the talks and say that we can't budge any more and it will be no deal u nless any more and it will be no deal unless the eu and in some way. whether she will heed those warnings is another matter, but i think the other point about the cabinet is they feel that there is no point in them agreeing to some type of copper mines, if there is no chance of parliament passing it. —— compromise. we are hoping that... it seems quite unlikely that the parliament and npp mac with past a deal. we are in this waiting game, and of course the clock is ticking as everyone keeps saying, and talk ofa summit as everyone keeps saying, and talk of a summit at the end of november, people getting increasingly frustrated about that likelihood, happening, and it may well be that it moves to december. is the kind of move in the cabinet —— mood in the cabinet changing? we are suddenly hearing, we hadn't heard anything of
6:55 pm
this before, we were told in the summer that the premise that was backed by her colleagues, but suddenly a lot of them are voicing serious reservations. we are suddenly hearing this, we have... how much of this is actually signal being directed at the prime minister by her cabinet colleagues? yes, i think it is, but i think the big question for those in the cabinet, who had these reservations but sat around that table all those months ago, and agreed to let this option go forward, and the ones who are now privately saying that they are unhappy about it. the question for them, and the pressure they come over from them, and the pressure they come overfrom some of them, and the pressure they come over from some of their own backbenchers, is will the act? were they say directly to theresa may, it is time to walk away from all of this, will they walk away themselves? and resign over it, at themselves? and resign over it, at the moment the ones that have reservations in to be deciding to stay there and try and fight it,

from within, if you like, but we will have to see if that position holds. thank you very much. don't forget, coverage of theresa may's speech which is scheduled to begin, puddings permitted, at 845 tonight. stay with us from the papers later on. now, time to look at the weather. we have certainly seen a day of sunshine and showers. some have been dramatic. they have been producing scenes like this one. this was taken in nottinghamshire, but up and down the country, we have had some dramatic cloudscape is out there. as we head towards the end of there. as we head towards the end of the day. all those big heavy clouds have been courtesy of this area of low pressure, moving from west to east through the day. we have not seen the back of itjust yet. the recent radar and lightning shows
6:57 pm
