defenders and didn't hearthe train coming. a big boost to britain's film and tv industry, as the american tv giant netflix opens a new base at london's world famous shepperton studios. and jos buttler helps england close in on the semi finals as they take on new zealand in the cricket world cup. and coming up on bbc news... after heather watson's exit at wimbledon, could kyle edmund become the first briton into the third round? good evening and welcome to the bbc news at six. a baby who was delivered by paramedics after his mother was fatally stabbed in south london at the weekend has died. 26—year—old kelly mary fauvrelle was eight months pregnant
6:02 pm
when she was killed in what detectives say was a brutal attack. police have now released footage of a man seen running away from the scene. they say they don't know what the motive was or how the attacker got in to the house in thornton heath. our correspondent sarah campbell reports. just after three o'clock on saturday morning, cctv captures a man walking in the direction of kelly mary fauvrelle‘s house. who is he, and why, shortly afterwards, is the same man, according to the police, seen running along the street? minutes later, the emergency services were called to kelly's address. kelly was the victim of a sustained and vicious attack, which has taken place in her own bedroom. her bedroom was in the family home, it was on the ground floor, which was actually her bedroom, and it was set up for her and there was also a cot in the room, which was also going to be set up for riley. kelly was eight months pregnant when she was stabbed to death.
6:03 pm
her son survived for five days in hospital after paramedics managed to deliver him by emergency c—section. the number of tributes in front of the house to mother and now her son has continued to grow. i think everybody is so shocked, you know, it'sjust beyond, it is beyond how somebody could do that, you know, to another human being, but, you know, an eight—month pregnant woman, 26 years old, it's just so wrong. forensics officers have spent the day examining the family home. two men, one aged 37 and another aged 29, were arrested at the weekend on suspicion of murder. both have now been released, neither has been charged. in the commons today, the local mp said the killing showed the government wasn't doing enough to tackle knife crime. if the government has been acting on knife crime, it isn't working. so what further action will the prime minister now take to stop the terrifying increase in the use of knives on our streets?
6:04 pm
we are taking action in a number of ways. we will continue to work and work with the mayor of london on the action that can be taken across london on this issue. but this is something that requires a multifaceted approach. many here are struggling to comprehend the stabbing of a heavily pregnant woman and the death of her baby. the police have given more details about what happened here on saturday morning. kelly was in the house with her brothers, her sister and mother. it was her sister who found her, they were alerted by screaming coming from her bedroom on the ground floor at the back of the property. police said there was no sign of forced entry but it was a hot night so windows may have been left open. they are asking for the identification of the man in the footage, even if just identification of the man in the footage, even ifjust to eliminate him from enquiries, and they ask anybody with information to contact
6:05 pm
them urgently. obesity now causes more cases of some cancers than smoking. the charity, cancer research uk, says bowel, kidney, ovarian and liver cancers are all more likely to have been caused by being overweight than by smoking tobacco. the number of obese adults in britain has risen dramatically over the past two decades — to around 15 million people. while the number of smokers has fallen sharply to 6 million. our health correspondent, sophie hutchinson, has more. is that what you are saying when you are buying them? they are not for me? a weight loss meeting to talk about unhealthy habits and how to change them. this group tries to tackle the underlying reasons behind obesity. we know chocolate cake is bad and salads are good, yet, why do we still keep going for that chocolate cake? i am successful in my work and home, i am not a stupid person, yet i still keep going for those bad food choices. it is all up here.
6:06 pm
and news that being obese puts people at greater risk of four types of cancer than smoking does hasn't gone unnoticed. sometimes it can be normalised that it is ok to be overweight, but the news today i think will make a difference. it has made me think differently. the four cancers are kidney, liver, ovarian and bowel. the most common is bowel, with 42,000 new cases a year. obesity is responsible for nearly 5000 of them, while smoking causes just below 3000. so how does obesity cause cancer? excess fat sends out signals that encourages cells to divide more often. it is thought that is the process that increases the chance of cancerous cells being made. in comparison to smoking where well over 80% of people tell you it is a cause of cancer, when we started our campaign, only around 15% of people would mention obesity unprompted. and as we are saying,
6:07 pm
obesity is actually the biggest cause of cancer after smoking. the latest attempt to warn of the harm of obesity has come under fire. this billboard is meant to look like a cigarette packet. it says, like smoking, obesity puts millions of adults at greater risk of cancer. but some have described it as fat shaming and say it's stigmatising and that campaigns like this simply won't work. to combat obesity, the government has cut sugar from half the drinks on sale and is funding more exercise in schools. i should stop eating cereal at nine o'clock at night. but with the numbers of obese people remaining stubbornly high, campaigners say more support and treatment are desperately needed. two rail workers have died after being hit by a passenger train near port talbot in south wales. british transport police say the men, aged 58 and 64, were wearing ear defenders at the time and couldn't hear the train approaching. sian lloyd reports.
6:08 pm
this is where two men, aged 58 and 64, lost their lives this morning. the rail workers had been wearing ear defenders and didn't hear the train approaching. emergency services were called and treated a third worker for shock. inside the train, passengers waited. four hours later, the 180 people on board were allowed to leave and taken away on buses to a nearby station. thank god that nobody on the train, the train didn't turn over. the people on the track, i think they were workmen, i'm not sure, and they were killed. the first thoughts have to be to the family of the deceased and the other person who was injured and equally, i must say, to the driver. this is the main line between swansea and london. the train had not long left
6:09 pm
port talbot when the accident happened just before ten o'clock this morning, in conditions very much like this. good visibility and dry weather. questions are being asked about how this tragedy happened. the rail workers union, the rmt, has called on network rail to suspend similar works while an investigation is carried out here. the company says it will cooperate fully with the enquiry, which has already begun. we have a number of officers remaining in the area, who continue to work alongside the rail accident investigation branch, to understand the full circumstances of what happened in the moments before this incredibly sad, fatal collision. over the past five years, two workers have been killed on the railways. tonight, safety standards are once again under scrutiny. forensic teams have just left the site and have been working all afternoon. the main line remains closed, certainly for the present.
6:10 pm
we have heard the men who were killed are from bridgend, just a few miles away from here. tonight, there isa miles away from here. tonight, there is a great deal of shock and sorrow felt in this community. a man accused of lying about the existence of a vip paedophile ring which he said had murdered three boys has repeated his claims in court that he was raped by a former head of the british army and byjimmy savile. police launched a £2 million investigation after carl beech said he was one of several children sexually abused by a group including leading figures from the british establishment. he denies 12 charges of perverting the course ofjustice and one of fraud. police investigating the disappearance of the estate agent suzy lamplugh, more than 33 years ago, have begun searching an area of land outside worcester, following new information. the 25—year—old went missing from fulham in west london in 1986 after meeting a client. her body has never been found. china and britain have become embroiled in a heated war of words over the demonstrations in hong
6:11 pm
kong. it's after the foreign secretary jeremy hunt warned of serious consequences for china if the rights of people living in the territory were infringed. today, beijing accused the uk of indulging in "colonial era fantasies". let's speak to our diplomatic correspondent james landale. the chinese have been upset by the foreign secretary appearing to support protesters. the chinese are furious and pushing back strongly against the idea briton has any responsibility for the people of hong kong. and the fact we had a news c0 nfe re nce hong kong. and the fact we had a news conference with the ambassador, a rare beast, and his language was very uncompromising shows how angry they were, accusing the british of gross interference is what they see as internal affairs of china. it goes down to the idea, the deal the british and chinese did all those yea rs british and chinese did all those years ago when the chinese took
6:12 pm
responsibility, what does it mean and how long should it last? tonight the british are pushing back themselves. they have summoned the ambassador, as we speak and he will be told by britain's top diplomat that what he said was unacceptable and inaccurate. the danger, it is a war of words but that it might bleed into something more significant and has a wider damage to britain's wider relations and i think diplomats will try to make sure that doesn't happen. postal ballot papers will be sent to around 160,000 conservative party members at the end of this week so that they can choose the next prime minister. will it be borisjohnson orjeremy hunt? 0ur political editor laura kuenssberg has been to canterbury, which the conservatives held for decades until 2017, to find out who tory party voters there are planning to pick. in sunny gardens, homes and meeting halls, tory members gather to choose who to send to downing street. it is
6:13 pm
their decision. and soon. the ballot paper goes out on friday and most people will reply quickly. you could have this contest sewn up by wednesday. will you all vote quickly? yes. officially, still three weeks to press the flesh but there could only be days to make a difference or the front runner to fall. has this ability to electrify a room and speak to people in a way other politicians cannot. to me, there is no contest. i have been at party conferences where you have had to queue three hours to get into the main hall to listen to what boris has to say. the response from party members is outstanding. has to say. the response from party members is outstandinglj has to say. the response from party members is outstanding. i cannot stand him. iworry members is outstanding. i cannot stand him. i worry about his competence and i do not think boris johnson has that. he is incredibly insensitive on racial issues. his opponents jump on the bandwagon and
6:14 pm
say, he said a racist thing, he does not like muslims, it is not true.|j would stop short of saying he is racist. he is incredibly insensitive. mps have doubts about boris johnson's insensitive. mps have doubts about borisjohnson‘s character. does worry you? not really. i think he is very ambitious but why are you in parliament if you are not ambitious. you can say anything people are currently saying about boris about churchill in 1939. every time boris appears there is spontaneous cheering and people call out and laugh. he connects. if he can get oui’ laugh. he connects. if he can get our party back to what it was, then he is my man. good morning, i will ta ke he is my man. good morning, i will take the biggest risk of the campaign and stand on a chair. might he flirt with risk? there is chatter at leastjeremy hunt is the one
6:15 pm
gaining. boris is a sugar rush politician who says the right thing and is appealing. he is a cheese sandwich, boring, but has the qualities you need. sadly i think jeremy hunt has gone from one place to another and back and cannot decide whether he wants to be a critic in the stands or a johnson tribute act. i would rather have someone tribute act. i would rather have someone dull who gets the job done. very nice chap. he does not have the charisma of boris. if i think boris could do the job and win an election and be a competent leader, yes. if i decide after listening to more debates that he would not, it will certainly be jeremy hunt. for the stability, for the common sense. what is the tally? boris. boris. undecided. hunt. hunt. boris. boris.
6:16 pm
but sense and sensibility are both in play. tory members will make their choice and leave us all with huge power in one person's hands. the time is 6:15pm. our top story this evening: police are hunting a man in connection with the murder of a pregant mother and her baby in south london. and coming up, i am at wimbledon with all of today's sport including a huge day for england in the cricket world cup. and on sports day on bbc news, can england complete thejob against new on bbc news, can england complete the job against new zealand and book a place in the cricket world cup semifinals? victory at durham will dojust semifinals? victory at durham will do just that. it's being heralded as a major boost for britain's tv and film industry. the american streaming giant netflix has signed a deal to take over much of the world famous shepperton studios in south west
6:17 pm
london, turning it into one of its major production hubs. shepperton opened as a film studio in 1932. since then, it's been the home of hundreds of films including star wars and bridgetjones. here's our media editor, amol rajan. everyone knows the best place for a clandestine meeting in london is and always has been st james' park. good omens, based on the book by neil gaiman, is one of amazon prime's biggest ever productions, and it was made in britain. crowley and aziraphale have been meeting here for quite some time... co—produced by bbc studios, the series is an example of how a few american web giants are transforming global television. as if armageddon were a cinematographic show you wish to sell in as many countries as possible. how has amazon's entry into the uk market changed things for a director like you? in simple terms, there's more money to make things on a bigger scale. good omens being made as a six and a half hour comedy, with a standard uk budget, we couldn't get it moving.
6:18 pm
we've now got the resources to actually make a world that is credible to the audience and that engages with the story completely and it's notjust a pared down adaptation. crosstalk. of course, it's notjust amazon. there is a creative boom going on in britain, driven by svod, or subscription video on demand. crosstalk. for christ sake! take the photo! over the past ten years, there's been an exponential growth in the value of the film and tv industry in the uk and its growth has significantly outpaced that of the uk economy. tv today is marrying the best of the old with the best of the new. shepperton studios, owned by pinewood, is where countless legendary movies were shot and netflix is moving in. they believe that by investing in local studio space and hiring local staff, they can neutralise concerns about american dominance of the industry. the new netflix production hub
6:19 pm
will include 14 sound stages in a total of 435,000 square feet. no one in the history of film or television has caused so much disruption so quickly as netflix, and the truth is, they're just getting started. the company is pivoting from an american distributor to a global production powerhouse, deeply embedded in local economies. rivals might grumble about the dominance of an over mighty californian giant but viewers aren't complaining. and anyway — that's showbiz! that's why we've invested so heavily here. that's why our original production in the uk is so big. this is about a $2.7 billion business, right, for the television market in the uk, that we hope to be a bigger and bigger part of. so, our predictions have generated about 25,000 jobs already. there a revolution going on in britain's creative industries and this one will be televised. amol rajan, bbc news, shepperton. another bumper sport day,
6:20 pm
here's natalie pirks has the latest. a huge day for england's cricketers in theirfinalgroup game a huge day for england's cricketers in theirfinal group game of a huge day for england's cricketers in their final group game of the world cup. after losing three of their matches so far, the pre—tournament favourites simply had to beat new zealand in a crucial match at chester—le—street to be sure of making the semi—finals. our correspondent andy swiss reports. come on england, it's the biggest game so far for england! don't let the smile is for you. england fans arrive knowing their nerves were about to be severelyjangled. beat new zealand and they would be through to the semifinals. lose, though, and their world cup could be over. pressure? while you'd hardly have guessed as england's batsmen got off to a blistering start. jason roy and jonny with a tonne of boundaries. a mammoth total seemed
6:21 pm
certain. but new zealand clung to their catches and clawed their way back. england's final total of 305, still decent, but would it be enough? the signs were soon encouraging. a spectacular catch from jos buttler, followed by the ultimate touch of luck. mark would tipping the ball onto the stumps to run out captain kane williamson. the finger of fortuna run out captain kane williamson. the finger of fortu na was run out captain kane williamson. the finger of fortuna was pointing england's way as the wickets kept tumbling. including one for ben stokes with his very first ball. fairto stokes with his very first ball. fair to say he enjoyed that and england will surely be enjoying this performance. it's been a bumpy ride but their world cup dream looks very much alive. and in the last few minutes, england have wrapped up an emphatic win. it means they are through to their first world cup semifinal said 27 years and if they can reproduce this sort of form, well, anything is still possible,
6:22 pm
natalie. thanks, andy. so, success for england's cricketers today but last night saw heartbreak for the lionesses, as england lost in the semi—final of the women's world cup. their match was the most watched programme of the year so far though, and now it's hoped women's football can capitalise on the record levels of interest, as katie gornall now reports from france. the morning after the pain of the night before. england's players were putting on a brave face as they left lyon, but for them, this was an all too familiar feeling. commentator: steph houghton. .. focused, as she always is. no! a missed penalty, a missed opportunity, yet again their world cup dream ended in the semifinal. for england, the last four is a barrier they seem unable to break through. the usa, the world's number one side, are still out of their reach. obviously gutted. let the team down and heartbroken because we were so close, but, like i said before, i'm proud of all the staff,
6:23 pm
i'm proud of all the players. we gave it everything. england's players had high hopes of staying here in lyon for sunday's final, but now they're packing up this bus and moving onto nice for a third and fourth place play—off, a place where no team who came here to france with ambitions to win wants to be. and yet, this squad has won over so many. a record peak audience of 11.7 million tuned in for the semifinal, making it the most watched tv programme of the year so far. the battle now is for women's football to stay in the spotlight. we have changed things. ourjob now at the fa is to capitalise on those and to really drive that home. so, i don't think these players need to shoulder the sort of responsibility that they somehow let us all down — they did anything but. beaten by the reigning holders... every step taken in this world cup has been new territory for england's manager. as his first major tournament nears an unwanted end, today he was thankful for all the support. we've been inspired, we've been motivated.
6:24 pm
you've given us energy and the love and care and support that you've given to us has been amazing. england want their new fans to stay on this journey. the olympics and a home european championships are both on the horizon. the hope is that this experience will drive the team forward. katie gornall, bbc news, in lyon. well at wimbledon it's been an uninterrrupted day of sunshine but it's been a topsy turvy affair for the two britons britons in singles action. here is my round—up of the day so far. it's been britain's most successful wimbledon for 13 years, after seven players survived round one but focus today turned to centre court and a certain kyle edmund. the british number one faced spain's fernando verdasco. and he soon took the first set 6—4. but at two sets up, with the match in his hands, his feet lost their way.
6:25 pm
and after that, he's looked in trouble. and in the last few minutes, his wimbledon is over. britain's heather watson has seen more downs than ups in the last year and this was, u nfortu nately, another of those days. she lost in straight sets to estonia's anett kontaveit. coco gauff is hoping for a better day. already signed to the same management team as legend roger federer, the 15—year—old won hearts here when she knocked out her rival venus williams on her debut. prompting joy from her parents and tears from the teenager. later, she'll take on slovakia's magdalena rybarikova. coco says her motto is just wing it, but her mum says her ascendance is no fluke. she's a little faster than what i predicted, but i do see her being a grand slam champion multiple times. serena williams knows plenty about that, of course. she will pair up with andy murray
6:26 pm
later this week, turning mixed doubles into the hottest ticket for everyone, including murray's mum. you know, they've both got good form in singles and doubles, so hopefully they can be the perfect match. murray mark 2 looks like fun. a huge blow for kyle edmund. he wasn't in great form that he was two sets up and verdasco was there for the taking. three—time slam winner and 22nd seed stanway rinker is out mixed doubles get started on friday and ten pipe will be teaming up with jade clarke. time for a look at the weather. here's louise lear. mid 20s today in london. a beautiful picture behind me. but pretty glorious for much of england and wales today. yes, we have seen more cloud into scotland and northern ireland. not that much in the way of
6:27 pm
significant rain. a bit of a nuisance to the north—west of the great glen. tomorrow, we start to see the rain pipping up further north, particular to the north—west of the great glen. some heavy bursts. a few spells of wet weather into eastern scotland. a cloudy day through scotland, a breezy day and also for northern ireland. south of that, business as usual, lots of clear blue sky and sunshine and warmth as we go into tomorrow. we could see temperatures peaking into the mid 20s quite widely. anywhere from manchester, hull and further south could see high 20s. a bit cooler further north and west. as we move out of thursday into friday, the high—pressure slips to the south—west and opens the door for this cold front to move in. that will be important as we push into the weekend. but for england and wales again another dry and settled story. more cloud into northern england and the odd spot of showers up england and the odd spot of showers
6:28 pm
up in the far north but we could see temperatures peaking at 26—27, 80 fahrenheit on friday. friday, the temperatures peak. that cold front is sinking steadily southwards. no rain with that, i'm afraid, gardeners and growers but it introduces a change of wind direction from the north—west, a fresher feel as we move into saturday. still a good deal of dry weather in the forecast and sunny spells, but highs of 15—22. a similar story into sunday. a little more in the way of cloud, a little fresher. if it is the warmth and sunshine you like, it will be back across england and wales in the middle of next week. thank you, louise. a reminder of our top story... police have released cctv of a woman stabbed over the weekend. that's all from the bbc news at six, so it's goodbye from me, and on bbc one, we nowjoin the bbc‘s news teams where you are. 00:28:57,486 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 this is where two men
