10:01 pm
after 22 years at stamford bridge. good evening and welcome to bbc news. north korea has stepped up its war of words with the united states, warning there will be "all—out war" if the us uses military force against it, and that it would be willing to use a pre—emptive nuclear strike. the comments to the bbc by the north korean vice—foreign minister came as the us vice—president, mike pence, who's visiting south korea, warned the north"not to test" warned the north "not to test" president trump's resolve. speaking to our correspondent john sudworth in pyongyang, the minister said despite the threat, the missile tests will go on. translation: if the us is reckless
10:02 pm
enough to use military means it would mean from that very day an all—out war. 0ur nuclear weapons protect us from that threat. we will be conducting more weapons tests on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis. if you could send one message to donald trump today, what would it be? i would tell him that if the gs encroaches on oui’ be? i would tell him that if the gs encroaches on our sovereignty, it will provoke an immediate counter reaction. if the us is planning a military attack against us, we will react with the nuclear pre—emptive strike by our own style and method. earlier this evening i spoke to david slinn, who was the uk ambassador to north korea between 2002 and 2006. i started by asking him what the atmosphere was like during his time in pyongyang. the atmosphere was quite tense,
10:03 pm
quite difficult. it was at the height of another nuclear crisis in that the existence of a second north korean nuclear programme based on enriched uranium was revealed. i can recall lots of conversations with north korean officials complaining, passing messages from uk ministers, about north korean plans for the nuclear programmes and stressing that in our view the development of a nuclear programme would not be good for the development of north korea. a decade on, what has changed? korea. a decade on, what has changed 7 what korea. a decade on, what has changed? what has not changed is the north korean's strategic objective of developing their own strategic nuclear capability. another thing that hasn't changed is the international community's resolve to try to convince north korea not to
10:04 pm
see that programme. a short while ago in washington sean spicer, the press secretary in the white house was holding his weekly briefing, and he was asked about what was happening with mike pence's visit to south korea. let's hear what he said to journalists. for us to telegraph what we are going to do or ask others to do would not be a smart strategy to lay about in public, but if you realise for example on the economic side of things, china is the number—1 importer of north korean call. to see them curtailed some of that has a real economic impact on the region. there is a lot of economic and political pressure points that china can utilise and we have been very encouraged at the
10:05 pm
direction there are going. a lot of conversations are ongoing, but let's not get ahead of ourselves. we have had a very productive direction that we have seen china moving and there is an agreement by everyone so far that i've nuclear capable north korea is not in anybody's best interests. listening to sean spicer there, about washington's hopes that beijing will apply more pressure, is there any reason in yourjudgment that china should be any more willing to up the pressure on north korea? there are some grounds for more optimism it is not in china's interest to have our new killer north korea on its doorstep. equally, you have to accept that china's interests do not necessarily allied with those of the united states. what would be fascinating to know would be more about the content
10:06 pm
of the conversation between the president of china and donald trump to try to understand more about the tone of that conversation. what i have long thought would be worthwhile would be for china and the united states to sit down and have a quiet away from the public dialogue about the future of the korean peninsula so that the concerns of both of those superpowers could be understood so they can come to a better understanding amongst themselves about what might happen in that post new killer north korea. you spend four years there as ambassador. i appreciate it is more than a decade ago, just type different place was ita ago, just type different place was it a living, to work can compare to all your other experiences around
10:07 pm
the world? it was very different. it was the most different players that they did work in. it was that sense of isolation from the outside world. diplomats are reduced to sitting down and talking to their opposite numbers. diplomats can usually understand each other and see where the guy on the other side of the table is coming from even if they don't agree with each other. in north korea that was not the case. north korea that was not the case. north korean diplomats did not really understand what the position of the west was, what we are trying to achieve, why we were trying to convince them that a new killer north korea was not in their own interests and it made for some very interesting sometimes quite confusing discussions. what is your sense of what the balance was between the ruling family and the
10:08 pm
other influences in london that country, most obviously the military? that is the ultimate challenge for the international community to try to work out. we have never been totally sure, reliably sure, but that kind of relationship. we want them and we are not now. we don't really know who has a serious influence on kim jong un and, in the way that we didn't understand when i was there who had an influence on kimjong—il and how the decision—making process developed. 0ne and how the decision—making process developed. one thing that always struck me was how ill informed, how little the officials that we seem to talk to understood the dynamics, the policy—making process in either washington or in london or in brussels, for that matter. there was
10:09 pm
a lot of decision—making that was basedit a lot of decision—making that was based it seemed to pass on ill informed processes within north korea. finally, do you see i hope for a way out of the problem of north korea? if sanctions don't appear to have worked, the so—called sunshine policy of opening links in holding the regime will collapse and see that life is better, as they say that, in south korea, if those options haven't worked, what can work? there are options. the option for a political solution is still there. it would be easy. i don't necessarily agree that sanctions have not worked. they are a blunt tool and they often take a long time tool and they often take a long time to have an impact, but there is circumstantial evidence to suggest that sanctions are having some impact in north korea. there is some
10:10 pm
circumstantial evidence to show that the amount of external information going into north korea is increasing and that is opening the minds of some of the people in north korea to the extent they are starting to ask questions about their own regime. we'll find out how this story and many others are covered in tomorrow's front pages at 10.45pm and 11.30pm this evening in the papers. 0ur guestsjoining me tonight are kate devlin, political correspondent at the herald, and the broadcaster david davies. the turkish president says all debate on constitutional changes has ended following yesterday's referendum result. 51.5% of turks voted to give him sweeping new powers. speaking to supporters in ankara, president erdogan accused his foreign critics of having
10:11 pm
a "crusader mentality" and declared that he would now begin the process of changing the constitution. let's speak now to ravza kavakci kan — she's a member of parliament from turkey's ruling ak party. thank you so much for being with us this evening. you must be delighted by the result. yes, i am really excited for turkish democracy. 0ver the last day we have seen that there was an 85% voter turnout, which is very good, and it is healthy so we are looking forward to a more resilient democracy and better economic future for turkey. you say
10:12 pm
that turnout was very good. high turnout yet a very close result. given that this is a big change in terms of turkey's constitutional future, because of the changed not least in the role of the president, is it right to make a change of that kind on such a narrow majority? well, that is what democracy is about. 1.5 million voters... it is just like brexiting great britain. it isa just like brexiting great britain. it is a narrow margin, but members of the party explained what this was really about because there was a lot of misconceptions and untruths that we re of misconceptions and untruths that were told, especially the fact that there are arguments that the president is given powers and the parliament he can the parliament are
10:13 pm
absolute nonsense. we are trying to explain and will continue to explain to the turkish people what this was all about. but you understand the criticisms that are made, but you have seen in reports by the election observers saying that the balance of debates in turkey, because of the effect of the state of emergency, because of the large numbers of people from critical parts are no longer broadcasting, that that has affected the balance of the debate. if you like, all of the official channels have been pumping out the yes message, and in no message, unlike brexit, the two sides have not been given have fair hearing. that is not the case. sides were able to tell their side of the
10:14 pm
story, but that wasn't the case for europe. and europe, the no campaign was supported by european newspapers and turkish ministers were not allowed to speak, and in the case of our social planning minister, in the netherlands she was allowed to speak but she was forcibly removed and was not allowed to go to her own turkish consulate there. in europe we have a different situation but in turkey it was open and fair and both sides we re was open and fair and both sides were able to talk of their arguments and the state of emergency does not affect the daily lives of the people but it is something that is related to increase insecurity and making sure that the system works. thank you very much forjoining us from
10:15 pm
istanbul this evening. thank you. prince harry has revealed that he has had counselling to help him come to terms with the death of his mother, princess diana. the prince, who was twelve when she died in a car crash, told the daily telegraph that he spent twenty years not thinking about her death and eventually got help after two years of what he called "chaos". mental health charities have welcomed the prince's decision to speak so candidly. time now for some sport. brighton and hove albion have been promoted to the premier league. it's 3a years since they've been in the top flight of english football. the championship leaders beat wigan 2—1 — goals from glenn murray and solly march. huddersfield's draw at derby confirmed automatic promotion. brighton will be crowned championhip winners if they can pick up 3 points at norwich on friday. arsenal ended a run of four away defeats in a row to move up to sixth in the premier league.
10:16 pm
the 2—1win over middlesbrough means they are now seven points away from a top four place, while middlesbrough stay in 19th. patrick gearey watched the action. time for a change they tell us. arsenal set up another unusual formation. whatever the shape, had his form that has been the problem for both of these sides. arsenal's solution was not tactical but magical, provided by alexis sanchez, smooth, simple, everything that has been missing of late. middlesbrough could only watch with envy, a lack of goals threatening to send them down. what a time for al barrowman agreed to do this, just after the break. they should have scored again. with relegation looming, mrs mattered more. arsenal have it in
10:17 pm
them to move from shuttle to swagger. middlesbrough looked to get another equaliser, but their old problems return, unable to score. another equaliser, but their old problems return, unable to scorelj think it was not perfect, but the focus was there and when we were tested we found the response i managed to win the game. it was a big mental test for us tonight because middlesbrough gave everything. captainjohn terry has announced he's to leave the premier league leaders chelsea at the end of the season. terry has been at stamford bridge for 22 years, winning 22 honours including a champions league, four premier league titles and five fa cups. he says he'll decide on his future ‘in due course', but is ‘committed to helping the team achieve success this season.‘
10:18 pm
manchester city women are still on course for a domestic treble after reaching the final of the women's fa cup. they beat liverpool ladies 1—0 in their semi—final this afternoon. melissa lawley with the goal. ellen white scored the winning penalty in the shootout as birmingham beat last year's runners—up, chelsea. it's the third day of the world snooker championship. former champions shaun murphy and stuart bingham are already through to the second round. hoping tojoin them is marco fu. these are live pictures from the crucible. the world number eight, fu, was 7—1 down against luca brecel, but he's taken the match to a decider. you can follow the match via the bbc sport website, highlights of the day are on bbc 2 at 11.30pm. in super league, leaders castleford tigers suffered just their second defeat of the season as they were beaten 26—22 at st. helens. elsewhere, wigan warriors made it two from two over the easter weekend,
10:19 pm
with victory at wakefield. salford red devils missed the chance to go level with castleford at the top of the table. they conceded six tries in a 38—6 defeat at catalan dragons — vincent duport scoring a hat—trick elsewhere, there were wins for leeds, hull and a third straight win for warrington. 0urjoke has won the irish grand national. it was never in any died. it continues a golden season for harrington and power, after they won the cheltenham gold cup last month. the rest of the day's sport is available on the bbc sport website. if the us plans military action against it. the comments came as the us vice president, on a trip to south korea, warned the north not to test the united states. we'll be asking what washington can do
10:20 pm
to persuade north korea to disarm. also tonight, prince harry opens up about the grief he suffered after the death of his mother, princess diana. i can safely say that losing my mum at the age of 12, and therefore shutting down all of my emotions for the last 20 years, has had a quite serious effect on not only my personal life but also my work as well. turkey's president erdogan brushes off criticism by election observers of a referendum giving him sweeping new powers. and after over 30 years away from top—flight football, brighton and hove albion earn a place in next season's premier league. good evening.
10:21 pm
north korea has stepped up its hostile language against the united states, warning there will be all—out war if the us uses military force against it, and that it would be willing to use a pre—emptive nuclear strike. the comments to the bbc by the north korean vice foreign minister came as the us vice president, mike pence, who's visiting south korea, warned the north not to test president trump's resolve. john sudworth reports now from pyongyang in north korea, north korea is all about shows of strength. the first today came in this taekwondo demonstration. the next, in kim il—sung square, close to the centre of power, by way of a rare interview. translation: if the us is reckless enough to use military means, it would mean, from that very day, an all—out war.
10:22 pm
0ur nuclear weapons protect us from that threat. we will be conducting more missile tests on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis. today, the us vice president, mike pence, was in south korea, visiting the demilitarised zone that separates the two halves of this divided peninsula. he too was talking tough. there was a period of strategic patience, but the era of strategic patience is over. president trump has made it clear that the patience of the united states and our allies in this region has run out. but despite the posturing on both sides, the risks are limited. for the us and its allies, war would be far too costly. and north korea's threats, although deeply alarming, are always conditional. if you could send one message to donald trump today, what would it be?
10:23 pm
translation: i'd tell him that if the us encroaches on our sovereignty, then it will provoke an immediate counter reaction. if the us is planning a military attack against us, we will react with a nuclear pre—emptive strike by our own style and method. tonight, although all options apparently remain on the table, the us appears to be signalling that diplomacy and toughened sanctions are now the most likely way forward. it's yet unclear how, having failed before, they will persuade this most totalitarian of states to disarm. there is strong evidence that beyond the gloom of this city lie vast political prisons, gulags in which all dissent, however mild, is crushed. although, in his interview, the vice minister called
10:24 pm
that accusation a lie. militarised, isolated and repressive, north korea has the right to follow its own path and, he insisted, no—one will be able to stop it. john sudworth, bbc news, pyongyang. 0ur correspondent gary 0'donoghue is outside the white house. what can washington do in the face of this apparent defiance from pyongyang? well, reeta, there was a previous president to use to say he liked to speak softly but carry a big stick. donald trump likes to speak very loudly and still carry a big stick, and so he has been upping the rhetoric today, telling north korea that it has got to behave, he has already sent that aircraft carrier and two destroyers to sail up and
10:25 pm
down the korean peninsula. his vice president standing on the border today, going eyeball to eyeball with those north korean guards. but the monetary options are limited for the us. they know that if they hit north korea, the south korean capital, seoul, with its 10 million inhabitants, just 30 miles from those north korean artillery positions. so they aren't lying on china to put new, renewed pressure, economic and political pressure on the north, to stop taking its coal and starts taking its oil. the problem is that china is still not very keen on doing that, so for president trump, the moment of the test will come in the north koreans decide whether or not to detonate a six nuclear weapon. when they do that, the rhetoric will be tested, and we will see whether he is prepared not to carry but to use that big stick in these circumstances. gary o'donoghue, thank you. prince harry has revealed that he has had counselling to help him come to terms with the death of his mother, princess diana.
10:26 pm
the prince, who was 12 when she died in a car crash, told the daily telegraph that he'd spent 20 years not thinking about her death and eventually got help after two years of what he called "chaos". mental—health charities have welcomed the prince's decision to speak so candidly. 0ur royal correspondent peter hunt has the story. prince harry, who's embraced his mother's humanitarian causes, like landmines, is behaving in a way that's rare for royals. he's the most high—profile person yet to talk about the mental anguish he's suffered. in 1997, as the world quite literally watched, the child prince walked behind the coffin of diana, princess of wales, who was killed in a car crash in paris. harry's only now talking publicly about the devastating impact of his mother's death. i can safely say that losing my mum at the age of 12, and therefore shutting down all of my emotions for the last 20 years, has had a quite serious effect on not only my personal life but also my work as well.
10:27 pm
my way of dealing with it was refusing to ever think about my mum, because why? would that help? it's only going to make you sad, it's not going to bring her back. harry's failure to confront the loss of his fun—loving mum has meant he suffered from anxiety and came close to a breakdown. it was his brother, prince william, who encouraged him to see a counsellor. all of a sudden, all of this grief that i'd never processed started to come to the forefront. i was like, "there's actually a lot of stuff here i need to deal with." it was 20 years of not thinking about it and then two years of total chaos. and as i'm sure you know, some of the easiest people to speak to is a shrink or whoever, the americans call them shrinks, someone you've never met before, you sit down on the sofa and say, "listen, i don't actually need your advice, can you just listen? " and you just let it all rip. and you've done that, have you? i've done that a couple of times. i'm not surprised. more than a couple of times, but it's great.
10:28 pm
for somebody in the public eye like prince harry, who has such a big reach, to do that and feel comfortable doing that, this is a significant step forward in terms of tackling the stigma around mental health. it was something his mother tried when she spoke about self—harming and her eating disorder. a generation on, the stiff upper lip is once again being abandoned. harry is a privileged prince who lives here, at kensington palace. his position didn't protect him from ill—health. he now wants to use his status to encourage others suffering in silence to follow his example and seek help. it's a campaign championed by kate, william and harry. called heads together, it's being supported by the london marathon. the racing royals with influence hope it'll be a mental—health marathon. peter hunt, bbc news, kensington palace. turkey's referendum, which gave the country's president sweeping new powers. they've condemned last—minute changes
10:29 pm
to the way the vote was counted, and said there was state interference and media bias against the no campaign. but president erdogan has dismissed the criticism, telling the monitors to know their place. our world affairs editor, john simpson, reports. mr erdogan was out in the streets of istanbul this morning, accepting the congratulations of some of his more fervent supporters. he only won yesterday's referendum by a whisker, after staging the most expensive electoral campaign in turkish history. in ankara, the capital, leaders of the 0sce, the international monitoring team who had observed the election, gave theirsumming up. it was unquestionably damning about the way the no campaign had been treated. the campaign rhetoric was tarnished by some senior officials equating no supporters with terrorist sympathisers. in numerous cases, no sympathisers faced police intervention and violent scuffles
10:30 pm
at their events. what effect is the referendum result going to have on turkey? we went to the magnificent grand bazaar in istanbul, dating back to the 15th century. let me sell you something that you don't need. but, jokes aside, there is one important thing missing here — western tourists. wandering round, i couldn't spot a single one. the reason there are no western tourists, says this businessman from the bazaar, is the terrorist attacks during the last one and a half years, and after that the crisis between turkey and europe over the referendum campaign. and given that tourism makes up 12% of turkey's economy, that's serious. but these are worries for the future.
10:31 pm
for now, huge crowds greeted mr erdogan as he headed back to his capital, ankara. then, at the presidential palace, with his wife beside him, he didn't trouble to be diplomatic when he spoke to the crowd about the 0sce‘s criticisms of the referendum. "we won't accept their report," he says, "we won't hear it, you can't convince us." he goes on, "the eu are threatening us with a freeze on negotiations." "it's not important to us, let them do it." the crowd adored his defiance. but defiance alone doesn't make for a strong economy. john simpson, bbc news, istanbul. here, two men are in a serious but stable condition in hospital this evening, and ten others have suffered burns after a suspected acid attack at a nightclub in east london.
10:32 pm
police believe the men, in their20s, were targeted in the mangle club in hackney. no—one's been arrested. this summer, some gcse grades in england are changing, with a*—g being replaced by grades 9—1 — a move that's creating "huge uncertainty", according to the teachers‘ union the nasuwt, who are holding their annual conference in manchester. the government says standards will go up because the content is more rigorous, and that bright pupils will have a better chance to shine. 0ur education editor bra nwen jeffreys reports. the new system has more grades and replaces letters with the numbers 9 to 1 — with 9 being the highest grade. it‘s all change for gcse maths and english this year. numbers, not letters, for grades, and new, tougher content for the exams. would that be ok, to do that? so umi is getting extra help from her tutor, something many families can‘t afford. even so, she‘s anxious about the exams. it‘s quite daunting, because lots of my teachers don‘t...
10:33 pm
they‘ve never taught it before, so they‘re not used to the new syllabus that‘s coming in. her mum, kelly, is trying to get her head round it all. a grade 4 will be the same as a c or above, and a top grade of 9 will be higher than an a*. she doesn‘t mind the exams‘ content being made harder. but to bring in a new grading system and make the whole exam structure tougher as well means that there's a lot that people have to deal with in a short space of time. teachers have been debating the changes today. their union, nasuwt, says ministers are moving the goalposts. headteachers move goalposts for yourself individually. but i think the government have just taken them away. and we might actually be playing snooker. generally, we are just very, very confused about what these grades actually mean, and, actually, were they even necessary in the first place? in a system where everyone
10:34 pm
understands, a‘ to g, why did we need to move to 9 to 1? it‘s only england that‘s making these changes, starting with maths and english this year. wales and northern ireland are sticking with letters. gcses are an important milestone in students‘ lives... ministers say that‘s why high standards matter. they insist the new system will be fair, a grade 4just as good as a grade c, but all that takes some explaining. branwen jeffreys, bbc news. it‘s one of france‘s most closely—contested presidential elections ever — and candidates have just a few days of campaigning left. the first round of voting is on sunday. if — as expected — no candidate wins a majority, there‘ll be a run—off election between the top two contenders. and for the first time there are four candidates who could make it to the second round. centrist emmanuel macron and far—right leader marine le pen remain the front runners, but only narrowly.
10:35 pm
conservative francois fillon is following closely behind. and now, after a last minute surge in support, far—left politician jean—luc melenchon could make it too. 0ur correspondent lucy williamson sent this report. jean—luc melenchon has been enjoying a different kind of political party, the kind which comes with a big group of people and a sense of celebration. 0nce seen as the protest vote, the communist backed candidate has surged to within a couple of points of the presidential favourite, with his lively way of speaking and his anti—elitist slogan, "chuck ‘em out." translation: this campaign has become more than a campaign, it is huge populist mobilisation which rings in a new dawn. mr melenchon wants to pull france out of eu treaties, ramp up public spending and introduce a top rate tax of 90%.
10:36 pm
frederick hasn‘t voted for anyone in more than a decade. translation: i am a worker and most workers today vote for the right or the far right, it is not in their interests. camille says she is 80% sure of voting for him and that her friends are leaning towards him too. all my friends are going to vote melenchon, all of them. i think there is really a big change among people my age and the youth in general. the trump election made me realise that i need to take a position. his rivals are starting to worry. campaigners for the liberal favourite, emmanuel macron, are now targeting underprivileged areas where his far—left rival is expected to do well, with specially written leaflets and instructions to target melenchon supporters, along with undecided voters. nobody knows what will happen, that is why we are here today,
10:37 pm
because we have to convince more and more people to vote for him. this is now becoming a four—way race with three of the candidates seen as political outsiders and a third of voters still undecided. analysts say france is in uncharted territory and the election is impossible to predict. mr melenchon first drew attention to his campaign by appearing at his rallies via hologram. he is planning to appear simultaneously at six locations tomorrow. if this election has shown anything, it is that the constraints of one candidate or another, can turn out to be just a trick of the light. lucy williamson, bbc news, paris. brighton and hove albion fans are celebrating tonight after making it into the premier league next season. their victory over wigan athletic — and results elsewhere — mean they will return to the top flight of english football for the first time since 1983.
10:38 pm
0ur correspondent andy swiss has the story. a day for the so—called seagulls to make some noise, and when you have waited 3a years, who could blame them? in that time, brighton have tumbled to the brink of oblivion but when they sealed a 2—1win, their remarkable rise was complete. at the final whistle, the fans flooded onto the pitch for an impromptu promotion party, in golfing the players and in lewes dunks‘ case, removing pretty much all of his clothes. celebrations on the set, for the fans, the premier league finally awaits. more money, better players, the whole thing is fantastic, best day ever. we have been waiting 34 years and finally we are here now. unbelievable. it is the best day of my life, apart from my wife and
10:39 pm
kids. in 1983 brighton also reached the fa cup final and might have won it. but after that last blast this, they lost a replay to manchester united and went into freefall. in 1997 they were nearly liquidated. they had to play at a local athletics track. but now with a gleaming new stadium, how those frustrations have faded. an amazing day and one that we will remember for the rest of our lives. to do with this group of players, the chairman and fans, it is an unbelievable football club. for the fa ns unbelievable football club. for the fans and the players, once again the big time beckons. that‘s all from me tonight, stay with us on bbc one, a touch of frost around in many
