but this time a blacklash awaits the lions on what will be all blacks captain kieran reed's 100th test. you see these tours and as a professional rugby player to be involved it's been fantastic. the amount of support that's been around from, you know, the home unions coming over, has been awesome for new zealand to see. saturday will be a chance for sam warburton to take care of unfinished business. four years ago he lifted the trophy in australia as captain but was injured for the lions's series clinching win in the third test. i set my sights on this tour and i wanted to be in a test team and play in the last game. it feels like all those years of sacrifice and all the little things i've done have all come to this moment, really. new zealand's america's cup win means there's already a party atmosphere here but could the lions be about to make history and paint the town red? katie gornall, bbc news, auckland. good luck all. time for a look at the weather. here's sarah keith—lucas. not as hot as yesterday, still

far north—west, northern ireland, west of scotland, elsewhere sunny spells, we could see heavy showers building across parts of england and wales. they will be hit and miss but if you catch one of those showers and could be heavy with potentially and could be heavy with potentially a bit of thunder, 26 degrees, not a wash—out at all. some showers on sunday but for many of us the next few days look fine and bright. that's all from the bbc news at one — so it's goodbye from me — good afternoon. now time for a look at the day's sports news with me jessica creighton. the action is well under way at wimbledon, two of the four britons playing in the third round are on court, and also in place is our reporter katherine downes, who has plenty to update us on. it looks like a beautiful day,
1:34 pm
catherine. yeah, and another scorcher. the best thing is notjust the sunshine, it is that you can watch british players all day long here at wimbledon today. we start on centre court, because at first is oui’ centre court, because at first is our very own heather watson, taking on former number one victoria azarenka, a massive match the heather. a huge occasion on centre court. she is going well, she broke victoria azarenka, who is making her comeback from having a baby in december. she has only played four matches since giving birth. that was the break point, azarenka going past baseline, giving heather watson the advantage in the first set on centre court. let's dip into live pictures to see how she is getting on. she is 4-2 to see how she is getting on. she is 4—2 up. victoria azarenka, 30—0 up on the heather watson serve. hopefully, heather watson can hold
1:35 pm
her nerve, keepers in it and get the first set under her belt in the next few minutes or so. before she was on court, we had a brick in action starting at 11:30 on court two, the british number four, aljaz starting at 11:30 on court two, the british numberfour, aljaz bedene, hoping to get into the fourth round for the first time. she has had epic battles to get to the stage. a big one for him today. he takes on 16th seed gilles muller, hoping to reach the fourth round for the first time. a tight first serve, that went to gilles muller. aljaz bedene was up but lost his advantage and it is now back on serve in that second set. 6-5 it is back on serve in that second set. 6—5 it is to gilles muller. i am looking at the scores, aljaz bedene has just been looking at the scores, aljaz bedene hasjust been broken. it looks like he is ata hasjust been broken. it looks like he is at a disadvantage in the second set, and will have to work ha rd to second set, and will have to work hard to keep himself in that match out on court number two. johanna konta is the middle match on
1:36 pm
court number0ne, johanna konta is the middle match on court number one, she takes on maria saqqara from greece. 21 years old, ranked outside the top 100. a second wimbledon, and she is trying to make it through to the third round for the first time like you konta. johanna konta is now the favourite to ta ke johanna konta is now the favourite to take the title with karolina pliskova being knocked out yesterday. she hopes to be here for the full two weeks of the tournament after a great three match win over donna vekic. konta feeling confident coming into this one. later on, a really great treat as well. another british champion, of course, andy murray, he is out on centre court to wrap things up for the day's proceedings, goodness knows what time it will be, 5pm, 6pm and maybe even 7pm. he takes on fabio fognini, the italian, the 28th seed. they are
1:37 pm
3-3 the italian, the 28th seed. they are 3—3 in their head—to—head. it would bea 3—3 in their head—to—head. it would be a shock if the only britain not to get through today be the reigning champion. it's been an interesting first session for england's cricketers on day 2 of the opening test against south africa at lord's. the morning started with the end of a sensation debut innings as captain forjoe root. out for 190. moeen ali kept the scoreboard ticking over with a few boundaries. but he didn't last too long either as england lost four wickets for just 46 runs. that didn't stop stuart broad having some fun. an 11th test 50 for him, brought up with back to back sixes. england all out for 458. south africa saw out four overs before lunch. they're ten without loss. that's all sport for now. we have action from all 1a quarter
1:38 pm
wimbledon. you'll find that at, and i'll have more in the next hour. let's get more now on one of our main stories. the seniorjudge who will lead the grenfell tower public inquiry has faced angry questions from some of the survivors of the fire and local residents, at a public meeting last night. sir martin moore—bick has been accused of ignoring calls for him to consider the social issues which affect public housing. at the meeting, he rejected claims he was appointed you saw there, i was giving sir martin moore—bick my opinion. i met him last week and i felt that he came out and immediately spoke to the media and was quite dismissive of our calls for a wider enquiry than what he sees as itjust being about, you know? we don't want this reduced to being a mere debate about cladding, because the issues are far wider than that. tens of thousands of people
1:39 pm
will face financial hardship, and be forced into debt, if changes aren't made to the way the new welfare benefit — universal credit — is rolled out. that's according to the charity citizens advice, which is calling for improvements. however, ministers insist the benefit is working — as our social affairs correspondent michael buchanan reports. at the citizens advice office in bridgewater, an increasing number of people are coming in, complaining about universal credit. vicky kelly has had to take the day off work to sort out her problems. she has no internet access at home and struggles to keep up with the online system. yeah, i'm having to take the day off from work to sort this out. they want me to work and yet, you've got to take time off! what's it been like, then, the past few months? terrible. struggling for money, having to find other work just to manage. and obviously now, they've stopped it again at the moment, we've got to make phone calls, make appointments to come back
1:40 pm
into thejob centre. and again, it's more time off of work, losing more money. universal credit has been rolled out across britain, six welfare payments such as housing benefit and tax credits being combined into one monthly sum. but problems are emerging — a survey conducted by citizens advice of those people it's helped found over a third of claimants are waiting longer than the six weeks they should for a payment. one in ten people have had to wait over ten weeks for universal credit. more than half have had to borrow money while waiting for their benefit. we are seeing at the moment thousands of people who are seriously worried about their personal situations and cannot fix it because the administration of universal credit is not helping them and the support is not there for them to see their way out of it. ministers insist that universal credit is a success and say most claimants are satisfied with the benefit and that help is available for those with problems. michael buchanan, bbc news. mental health services in england are being overwhelmed
1:41 pm
by a combination of rising demand and staff shortages — that's according to a survey by nhs providers. there are also concerns that extra government money, designed to improve access for patients needing help, is failing to reach front line services. here's our health correspondent, dominic hughes. two years ago alice victor was struggling with an eating disorder, but her gp told her it would take at least a year before she was referred for nhs treatment. in the end, alice went private, but thinking back, she remembers that wait as a dangerous time. it takes so much to come out and say i need help and i need professional help, and to then to not get it is horrible. and having to wait longer and longer, you get stuck in the same unhealthy thought patterns and your mental illness takes over. a survey of bosses at mental health trusts across england paints a picture of services under pressure. 70% expect demand to increase this year. two out of three trusts say they don't have enough staff
1:42 pm
to cope, particularly mental health nurses and psychiatrists. and 80% say extra government money intended for mental health is not reaching front line services. we've seen many, many more campaigns up and down the country really talking about breaking down the stigma of presenting for mental health treatment, but that means that demand is going through the roof. and i think we're at risk of mental health trusts being overwhelmed in the near future. the department of health in england said it expected nhs bosses to make sure an extra billion pounds each year reached front line mental health services by 2021. meanwhile, a bbc radio 5 live investigation has found a 16% rise in ambulance call—outs to people suffering from suspected mental health problems, adding to the signs the pressure is building across the system. dominic hughes, bbc news.
1:43 pm
with both countries still technically at war the demilitarized zone separates north and south korea. tensions are even higher on the peninsula, following the north's latest missile test. the talk has been tough, but what does that mean for the situation where the two sides come face to face? 0ur seoul correspondent steve evans went to find out. all the talk now from politicians and military people in washington is of war. but this is where the front line of that war would be, and abnormal life goes on. let me explain the sound, that is south korean speakers blasting old south korean speakers blasting old south korean pop tunes across the valley at north korea. north korea does the same back. somebody has got a sense of humour, because one of the songs being blasted is let's hang out by the river. but you need a sense of humour here. it is called the
1:44 pm
demilitarised zone, it is completely the wrong name. it is heavily, heavily militarised. from here, two: does, they are minefields. then the actual border between the two countries, then the north korean minefields the two calamitous, and heavily armed military ‘s on either side. at the moment, those militaries are not in super tension, super preparedness, they are at abnormal rates of very prepared. if there is a war, it would probably be very, very sudden, a decision of president trump. steve evans paire. in a moment a summary of the business news this hour, but first, the headlines on bbc news: donald trump meets world leaders at the 620 donald trump meets world leaders at the g20 summit in germany, including, for the first time, russia's bradley putin. a former
1:45 pm
teacher at a mosque in cardiff is sentenced to 13 years in prison for sexually assaulting four girls over ten years. the seniorjudge who will lead the g re nfell tower the seniorjudge who will lead the grenfell tower public enquiry has faced angry questions from survivors of the fire and local residents. hello, and now the business news: the amount of goods and services we're buying from abroad has gone up — compared to the amount we exports. official figures show the trade deficit went up by £1 billion from april to may — tojust over three billion pounds. also , manufacturing output dropped, especially in car production. the meal delivery firm deliveroo says it will pay sickness and other benefits to its riders, if the law is changed. it says that current law defines riders as self employed — which means they can't be offered extra rights. the company is calling for a change in the law — to assure extra rights and flexibility.
1:46 pm
house prices fell by 1% injune according to the halifax. that's the largest monthly fall since january. this brings the average price of a home to just over £218,000. it's the third monthly fall in a row. we live in an age of change in the financial sector. innovation is the name of the game, as companies compete tooth and claw to deliver crucial financial services. the financial technology sector starts a week long summit in london today — and brexit is set to be top of the agenda. joining us now is elizabeth lumley, co—founder of fintech cocktail club. what is that? it is a meet up that was organised a year ago between myself and our two founders, and it was an antidote for people who like
1:47 pm
jim! all that meeting up and jim, is there much concern about brexit? brexit is a pain in the butt. sometimes the best innovation comes from friction, and london has been the financial services capital for centuries. there is a real problem with talent leaving this country, which are not of the banks and new entra nts which are not of the banks and new entrants in fintech start—ups need to deal with. it is a lot of friction at the moment, but something that hopefully we can overcome. you something that hopefully we can overcome . you say something that hopefully we can overcome. you say hopefully, but how? if there is friction and uncertainty, how can we make sure we innovate enough to stay ahead of the pack? it is really talent. i know! can pull the big count on one hand the number of people in the fintech
1:48 pm
industry that were born in this country. the amount of talent that comes from all over the world, half of it comes from europe. i know people with ph.d. ‘s that have been in the sector the decade and thinking about leaving this country. the government really needs to think about how to keep that talent in the country if they want to keep those innovations and new way of thinking growing. is the flip side of that that it growing. is the flip side of that thatitis growing. is the flip side of that that it is time to start developing oui’ that it is time to start developing our own england, innovative superstars? yeah, you could say that. but in my mind, diversity raises the bar. you need a wide range of people to come in. that is what made london the fintech capital of the world. i spend a lot of time all over the world. probably singapore is the closest comparison. if you go to new york, it is full of americans. harris is full of french people. london is full of people from all over the world. that is what made this industry so robust and exciting. that is the recipe.
1:49 pm
you can't make the cake without all the ingredients! thanks very much. good luck with the summit. thank you. as you've been hearing, leaders of the g20 group of the world's top economies are gathering in hamburg today. concerns about free trade are high on the agenda. but for europe, equally pressing is the migration crisis. professor christian dustmann from university college london says its proving a tough issue to crack. what we are seeing at the moment is a continuation of what started in 2015, the emphasis has shifted a little bit to africa from the middle east. but we see that people are fleeing war, persecution and increasingly so poverty, and making their way over the mediterranean into europe. the borders of libya, which have been avoiding that during the gaddafi regime are now not doing
1:50 pm
that any more. this flow has two b, in some way, addressed. where we can see consensus is in some way, addressed. where we can see consensus is creating situations in those countries where these people are coming from, which will make it liverpool in the future for these people. that is something where we can see progress at the g20 —— liveable. microsoft is to cut "thousands" ofjobs around the world as it tries to beef up its presence in the cloud computing sector — where its facing intense competition from the likes of amazon and google. the majority of cuts are expected to be outside the us. luxury handbag maker, mulberry, has set—up a joint venture injapan as it continues expanding into asia. the company has signed a deal with japan's 0nward global fashion to form the new business. it's going to be called mulberry japan and have its headquarters in tokyo. the chinese internet company tencent
1:51 pm
says its profits won't be hit by its decision to limit the amount of time kids can spend playing one of its most popular games. access to honour of kings is now limited to one hour a day for kids under 12, and two hours for those between 12 and 18. the limits were put in place after a state—owned newspaper called the game "poison". let's look at the markets. a varied day across europe. in london, the ftse mac has been seesawing between losses and gains. 0n the upside its been helped by the fall in the value of the pound — after disappointing trade figures. a weak pound tends to push the ftse higher, because it helps companies selling overseas. that is it for me. now, if you've flown long haul over the past a0 years, chances are you've been on a boeing 747, best known as thejumbojet. it revolutionised air travel around the world, making it possible to fly further and for less money.
1:52 pm
but could the era of big jets be coming to an end? 0ur transport correspondent, richard westcott reports. newsreel: out of the biggest hangar in the world came the world's biggest plane. it's the giant aeroplane that shrank the world — two and a half times bigger than anything else at the time. with its iconic hump, boeing's 7117 brought cheap flying to the masses. it nearly bankrupted the company, but ended up saving it. newsreel: even as a toy, the 747 makes a formidable armful. this is the aeroplane that gave wings to the world. because of its size, because of its range, and its economy. it made it possible for the airlines to fly economically anywhere in the world. but 50 years on, airlines prefer smaller, more fuel—efficient planes, and boeing says it may finally stop making the jumbo jet. but after all that hard work and all those miles, this is where 747s come for a quiet retirement.
1:53 pm
in less than a day, an entirejumbo jet has been reduced to that pile of rubble there. they are just smashing up the last piece of fuselage, and all that aluminium will be taken off and turned into beer cans. some of these seats are going back to the airline, but others have been bought by private collectors, who will turn them into quirky office furniture. i can't get the films working, though. they've slightly different plans for this jumbo jet. a very rich person has bought the top half of it and apparently they're going to turn it into some kind of social area, or come—office. and if we actually go into the cockpit, you've got all the controls, and apparently lots of enthusiasts from all over the world buy this kind of stuff. 1970, and the very first 747 lands in britain.
1:54 pm
london's heathrow airport took the arrival of the world's first jumbo jet with surprising ease. it made a big impression on one ogling fan that day. there was a huge thing in the press about this first aeroplane coming in across the atlantic, pan am, and so i had to go and see it. it was a big cuddly aeroplane, it did its best to look after you. it goes for miles, it never runs out of fuel, never comes close to running out, the systems on it, the 400 series, which is the last one, they were modern systems — a digital aeroplane, everything worked. what more could a pilot want? the jumbo isn't the only giant plane struggling for orders at the moment. archrivals airbus make the even bigger a380, but sales have been poor and they have also slashed production.
1:55 pm
but the jumbo isn't finished yet. that hump is there for a reason — the nose comes up to carry freight. it might carry fewer passengers in future, but jumbos full of goods will be filling the skies for years to come. time for a look at the weather, let'sjoin sarah time for a look at the weather, let's join sarah keith—lucas for the forecast. warm sunshine to be enjoyed. not as hot as yesterday, though. this was a scene in maidenhead showing the clouds there. a similar picture across southern and eastern parts of the country. thick cloud across the north—west of the uk. you can see it on the satellite image. cloud bringing light spots of rain across scotland, heavy bursts in the east of scotland. drizzling showers in northern england and north wales through the afternoon. many of us remain with a light breeze. 20 of
