5:01 pm
addresses one of europe's biggest trade union events, calling time on austerity and highlighting the living wage. and pride in london gets under way: tens of thousands of people march through the capital, marking 50 years since homosexuality was decriminalised in england and wales. it was billed as one of the most important international gatherings of recent years. so it is proved. add the end of every 620 summit, and
5:02 pm
communique is produced in which the 20 members outlining the areas in which they have agreed. angela merkel has not tried to dress up what has happened over the last couple of days. on the single most important issue at the summit, climate change, there was in her words, no compromise. the 19 members other than the united states could not find a way of persuading donald trump to come on some common ground. what we have in the communique at the end of the summit is an acknowledgement that on the most crucial of fishes, the vast majority of the world head in one direction and america head and another. let's listen to what the chancellor said earlier. translation: one crucial issue was climate and energy, and what came out of this meeting was what i had already said at the beginning of this meeting, wherever there is no consensus that can be achieved, disagreement has to be made clear. you are familiar with the american position. you know that unfortunately, and i deplore this, the united states of america left
5:03 pm
the climate agreement, or rather announced their intention of doing this, so what becomes clear in this declaration is the dissenting view of the united states. but i am very gratified to note that the other 19 member states of the 620 say that the proposed agreement is irreversible, that we feel committed to what we agreed on, and that it is to be implemented as quickly as possible, and that we also agreed on a so—called hamburg action plan on climate and energy. the american position on climate change is not just the american position on climate change is notjust relevant because of how the world responds on the issue of climate. it is also releva nt to issue of climate. it is also relevant to global leadership. since the end of the second world war, on every matter of global significance, america has had the most powerful
5:04 pm
voice. with donald trump's decision to pull america out of the paris climate change agreement, he has created another space for a global leaders to step in to say that they and their countries should be the one setting the agenda rather than the americans. someone who sought to do that very conspicuously is the new friends president, emanuel macron. he has announced the summit that will look at funding for climate science projects in december. he also used the phrase, make the planet great again. here he is talking about the issue earlier. translation: there is no a la carte paris agreement. you are in or out andi paris agreement. you are in or out and i have been very clear and the same day that donald trump made his announcement and this is the reason i acknowledge the american disagreement, but there is a spirit of compromise, unless it is a sign of compromise, unless it is a sign of weakness. that is why there is no
5:05 pm
ala of weakness. that is why there is no a la ca rte of weakness. that is why there is no a la carte paris accord. there is no way back, no alternative, and it is as simple and unfortunate as that, but that is the fact. the paris agreement does not mean we will immediately change production models. we are not pointing at the countries that rely on fossil fuels. the main point is we have a common goal, we have a road. each country should adapt the domestic regional provisions and regulations. europe has not done it all. france doing it through the paris accord, but one of the key principles is there is no way back. anyone stepping back will have to shoulder the responsibility is, andi have to shoulder the responsibility is, and i will not give up. the next leader to turn to climate change was the uk prime minister, theresa may. before arriving, she said she would reiterate the uk's commitment to the paris beall, and she said she would speak to donald trump about his
5:06 pm
decisions to take the americans out of it. like other world leaders here, i am dismayed at the us decision to pull out of the paris agreement and i have urged president trump to rejoin the paris agreement. the uk's good commitment to tackling global climate change is as strong as ever. not only will this protect the environment for future generations, it will keep energy affordable and make —— and maintain affordable and make —— and maintain a secure and reliable supplier to protect the interests of businesses and consumers. we will create a safer and more prosperous future for us all. in years to come when we look back on the summit, it will be through the prism of climate change that we assess its significance. the single moment which garnered the most attention was not angela merkel‘s statement earlier in the stumbling blocks on climate change, it was the meeting between vladimir
5:07 pm
putin and donald trump. they had never met before and it was a mass amount of interest because of the allegations that russia had meddled in the us election and that donald trump had colluded in the campaign. both things are denied. vladimir putin gave a press conference earlier. he was asked about the moment when president trump asked him about those allegations. translation: the president of the us posed the question. we discussed this question. it was not one question, it was many. he devoted a lot of time to it. our position is well known and i laid it out. there is no basis to see russia interfered in the us elections. what is important is we agree there should be no room for doubt on such things in the future. i said this at the last 620 session. it is directly linked to cyberspace, to the internet. we agreed with the president of the us that we will
5:08 pm
create a working group and work together on how to control security in the area of cyberspace, on how to ensure international legal norms are observed, how to ensure there is no interference in the internal affairs of foreign states. above all, this concerns the us and russia. i think we are able to do this and i see no reason to doubt that. then there will be no more speculation on this matter. one of the other intriguing thing is that president putin said was that meeting mr trump in person was that meeting mr trump in person was quite different from seeing him on the a look. i do not know how this will sound, but i think the television trump is very different from the real trump. he is very concrete. he analyses quite quickly and responds to questions that are opposed or arise during discussions. i think if we form our relations in the way that our conversation went
5:09 pm
yesterday, there is every reason to think that we can restore, at least in part, the level of cooperation thatis in part, the level of cooperation that is required. during the 620 summit, there have been two quite different stories, one taking place in the vast conference centre where the leaders had been gathering, along with 10,000 delegates and 5000 journal is, then there has been the story of what has been going on outside, because thousands of protesters have come to hamburg for the summit. many have made the point is peacefully. i went to one protest on wednesday evening. it was cold, i would rather dance than good to the 620. it was like a big party, with lots of people making their feelings known about globalisation, free trade and capitalism. there has also been serious violence, mostly in the evenings and overnight, but notjust then, also in the daytime as well. the bbc‘sjenny then, also in the daytime as well. the bbc‘s jenny hill then, also in the daytime as well. the bbc‘sjenny hill has been covering this thread a week. this is her latest report. the fury,
5:10 pm
the violence took hamburg by surprise. shops were looted, businesses crashed. this man has been trading yearfor 50 businesses crashed. this man has been trading year for 50 years. he says he has never seen anything like it. really shocked, helpless and shocked. e—business has been here for 70 years. we know there are problems the neighbourhood, but it was not people from round here that did this. for nearly two days, hamburg's streets have been a battle ground. clashes flailing all over the city, more than 200 officers injured. —— clashes flaring. this is, they say, a new dimension of violence. translation: we had to
5:11 pm
bring in special forces trained in anti—terrorism operations. this was to protect officers. we had intelligence that the protesters had molotov cocktails and concrete blocks ready to throw from the rooftops. the morning after, a brief lull. what is really striking about hamburg today is the quiet. for the first time in nearly two days, there are no helicopters circling overhead, no sir rings, no clashes breaking out. in the air, i think there is a sense of quiet shock. this city has just experienced nearly 48 hours of almost continuous violence. for now, peaceful protest. but police believe extremists planned to hijack this as well. hamburg, the so—called gateway to the world, is now a city on edge. speaking to one 6erman journalist
5:12 pm
earlier, they said that this was supposed to be the 620, but it turned into the 6 —— trump. the point was that despite angela merkel being the host and setting the agenda for the different sessions, the nature of the summit has been said by donald trump, his relationship with other leaders, and the policy positions he has taken. we have these pictures of him getting off the presidential helicopter and strolling across to force on, to fly home. his work in hamburg is done. the reason some people are talking about the summit this way is not because mr trump has got everything his own way. he has not won a number of issues, but because the position that he and america has taken on the single biggest issue that 620 has faced, it has put a massive divide between america and the other members of the
5:13 pm
620. what has been fascinating is there has not been any compromise. angela merkel said we remain committed to the paris deal, we remain committed to implementing it. the other members of the 620 said to donald trump, are you sure, we would rather you come with is? he said, no, iam rather you come with is? he said, no, i am taking america and another direction. they said, we are going wrong way. that is where we are going on climate change, america on one past, most of the rest of the on another. roz atkins, coming live from hamburg and giving a summary of events taking place as the 620 summit has closed. we just saw pictures of donald trump and the entourage, the us team leaving, departing hamburg. 0ur reporterjust us team leaving, departing hamburg. 0ur reporter just highlighting us team leaving, departing hamburg. 0ur reporterjust highlighting the main points, climate change was one of the main subjects, followed very
5:14 pm
closely by trade, and post brexit trade a massive subject for britain's theresa may. plenty of other news has been taking place. let's give you a rundown of those headlines. president trump has left splits amongst the 620 summit of world leaders. there is criticism of his decision to pull out of the paris climate records. celebrations in mosul as iraqi forces say they are battling to clear the last pockets of resistance amongst militants of the so—called islamic state. also, firefighters tell the bbc they did not have the necessary equipment needed to tackle the blaze at the 6renfell power. iraqi government forces are battling to clear the last pockets of
5:15 pm
resista nce to clear the last pockets of resistance in the iraqi city of mosul. for the last years it has been the group isis' is stronghold. celebrations have been taking place in the west of the city. clashes are still ongoing. so—called is has said their members will fight to the death. 0ur correspondent spoke to us from iraq. a formal declaration is expected later today. we don't know when. a raging battle taking place in the old city of mosul. counterterrorism forces are saying they're only a metres away from the western edge of the river tigris and the old city. there is ferocious fighting taking place between them and the remaining is militants. hundreds of thousands of people are displaced, mostly from the western pa rt displaced, mostly from the western part of the city. which has
5:16 pm
witnessed a huge scale of destruction. when i was looking around in the western part, inside the old city, i was wondering when it would be reconstructed. it will ta ke it would be reconstructed. it will take some time for these people do come back home. he lot of efforts have to be orchestrated by the iraqi government to rebuild the city. that will take a long time, great effort from the iraqi government. the post is era is expected to be fluid when the iraqi government and leaders, they will try to sit together to reconcile, build up trust between them. also to find the funds, we're talking about billions of dollars to reconstruct and rehabilitate the infrastructure in mosul, the two parts of the city. we don't know when that will take place, a long
5:17 pm
time, as expected. the iraqi security forces, they said they have given the is militants two options, surrender or die. they have chosen to die obviously. we can eliminate all is militants. there are reports of some is members able to sneak among the civilians fleeing the old city of mosul. departing mosul. some ca ptu red city of mosul. departing mosul. some captured by the iraqi security forces, some said to be seen in other villages and parts. the fear and the concern amongst the civilians in mosul is that is can raise again if things do not go well. if they are kicked out and eliminated, there is that concern. woman and three children have died ina woman and three children have died in a house fire in bolton. police and firefighters called to the blaze
5:18 pm
at rosamund street, at nine o'clock this evening. a man managed to escape the terraced house, two boys and a girlunderthe escape the terraced house, two boys and a girl under the age of 13 and a woman were still inside. 0ne and a girl under the age of 13 and a woman were still inside. one of the children pronounced dead at the scene of the woman and two other children died later. the fire is not supposed to be suspicious. the london fire brigade say they have changed the type and number of fire engines they deploy tower block fires. it follows an investigation by the bbc‘s newsnight programme that said that no high ladder engine was sent in the first way to 6 re nfell tower, was sent in the first way to 6renfell tower, which has so far claimed 80 lives. the fire brigade union said the extra height divided by such an engine would have helped to fight the fire more effectively and might have saved lives. braving the flames just before 1am.
5:19 pm
fire services were on the scene in minutes from being called, but firefighters said that they lacked equipment and sufficient water pressure when tackling what became an inferno at 6renfell tower. it took more than 30 minutes for a high ladder to arrive at the 67—metre high blog according to a bbc newsnight investigation. one was not automatically sent. 0ne fire union official believes if it had arrived earlier it could have made a difference. i have spoken to aerial appliance operators in london who drive and operate those appliances and who attended the incident, who think that having that on the first attendance might have made a difference because it allows you to operate a very powerful water towerfrom outside the building. it has also emerged there was no platform tall enough in london to suit a building of this size and help with the rescue effort so one had to be set from surrey. london fire brigade has now changed its procedures so that a high ladder is automatically sent to any tower fire straightaway. 0ther fire brigades now may follow suit and greater manchester fire
5:20 pm
and rescue service announced a change in their policy so that a high ladder is automatically dispatched to a tower block fire. newsnight was also told that firefighters struggled with water pressure problems and called thames water to increase pressure in the area. thames water said any suggestion that there was low pressure during this appalling tragedy is categorically false. but questions remain as to what was in place as firefighters first rushed in to help the residents of 6renfell tower that night. even though some answers may not come until the public inquiry, it seems that pressure for more precautions in the future means changes are already underway. the mayor of london has asked the
5:21 pm
london fire commissioner to carry out a review of kit. i want to pay tribute to newsnight for their report. they will be a public enquiry, police investigation. i'm not willing to wait for that, i have asked any cotton, the commission of the london fire service to carry out a review. it will tell me what she needs, and my promise to her is to make sure the london fire service get exa ctly make sure the london fire service get exactly what they need. many londoners will be staggered to learn there was not a default position to send out a high ladder in that position? the key thing is to assure londoners, when there are fires in tower blocks, the fire service operate from within the tower. they have the equipment in place to keep londoners save in tower blocks. the fire 6renfell tower was unprecedented. all of us saw this speed of the fire, concerns over the cladding, whether the fire doors with the writers. whether the fire engines could get to the block because of access issues. all those things are being looked into by
5:22 pm
london fire brigade. the key thing is to make sure londoners are reassured. the fire service has given us that reassurance. i have asked them to look into looking to what agreement they need this we will give them what they need. was theissue will give them what they need. was the issue of the high ladder deployment or kit is available, was that something you were whereof prior to 6renfell tower? had it come up prior to 6renfell tower? had it come up in talks, planning for the city's resilience? it had not been raised with me. i took a review is looking into the issue of whether we were fit for purpose, bearing in mind the huge cuts made in the last eight yea rs huge cuts made in the last eight years to the london fire service was what was recognised, there was lessons learned by danny cotton. lessons that can be learned. jeremy corbyn has used his speech at the durham miners‘ 6ala to praise his party's performance in the general election campaign.
5:23 pm
speaking earlier this afternoon mr corbyn said the tories took the election for granted, and questioned the credibility of their deal with the dup. we've raised the whole question of real solidarity. real solidarity, what it means. that's you know something, the tories went into this election thinking it was going to be a walk in the park. it became a walk in the dark a nightmare for them by the end of it. do you know what? i am not sure they have learned many lessons from it. i'm not sure about that at all. they have done a deal with the dup. which has cost them £1 billion, the same levels of investment around the rest of the country would mean £50 billion
5:24 pm
invested in all of the english regions. money going to scotland, and wales. that know they have £1 billion to buy ten votes in parliament. they have £1 billion for those ten votes to stay in office. they cannot find a penny for the health workers, education workers, orany health workers, education workers, or any other group health workers, education workers, orany othergroup in health workers, education workers, or any other group in the public sector. 6reat 0rmond street hospital has applied to the high court for a fresh hearing into the care of the terminally ill baby, charlie 6ard. judges have previously ruled against the child's parents, who want to take him to america for treatment. but the hospital now wants the case reopened to consider new evidence about a potential treatment. a range of doctors and scientists have voiced their opinions. clashes have broken out between protesters and security forces in indian—administered kashmir, on the anniversary of the killing of a militant leader, burhan wani.
5:25 pm
the indian authorities have imposed heavy restrictions in the kashmir valley for the anniversary. shutting down internet access and locking down key locations. 0ur correspondent sanjoy majumder is there. we are heading to south kashmir and the village of burhan wani, the militant commander killed in a year ago, where large protests are expected today. we are a few kilometres from the village. the main access roads have been blocked. soldiers have taken up position and cordoned off this area. there is a curfew in place and villagers are being asked to stay inside their homes. soldiers are checking the woods beyond to make sure that no—one is able to sneak through. any civilian who comes to this area is being stopped and prevented from proceeding further. translation: a year ago, burhan wani was murdered in this village. we're not going there and even if we were, what's the problem?
5:26 pm
but as the day wears on, the first sign of trouble. some protests have just broken out. the protesters are mostly teenage boys who have come out on the streets and security forces are chasing them. they're throwing rocks at them and they are being pushed back slowly. the mandate is very clear — on no account must they be allowed to advance. security forces will use as much force as needed to bring this to an end. loud bang. the protesters have retreated, but the situation is at its worst hundreds of thousands of people are expected to attend the ‘pride in london' march which gets under way this lunchtime. this year the event is marking the 50th anniversary of the first partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in 1967.
5:27 pm
wyre davies is in london's 0xford street from where the march set off. earlier i spoke to our correspondent, wyre davies, who was at the start of the parade. incredible scenes here in west london. this is the capital's 45th anniversary of celebrating diversity and equality, and also marks 50 years since the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in england and wales. there are about 26,000 official participants on floats and in the parade itself. there are huge range of backgrounds and cultures and 1 million people are expected on the streets of london today in amazing weather conditions — rather too hot, actually! pride is being opened today by l6bt members of the emergency services, many of whom served not only at 6renfell tower, but also at the terror attacks at london bridge and westminster bridge as well. security is a very big issue here at the carnival for obvious
5:28 pm
reasons and there will be a much bigger police presence. some incredible scenes. 0ld attendees have said it has become rather commercial, but the spontaneity and the enjoyment is as good as ever, i think. everybody is out there enjoying themselves and we're just about to get under way. he was at the launch of the pride in london in march. taking place, that was in oxford street. fantastic weather. now, let's get the weather. so far so good for the weekend weather. most of us seeing some sunshine, most places dry. notable exception north—west scotland, the far west northern isles. 0utbreaks of rain, edging further south through the night. cloud thickening,

5:30 pm

5:31 pm
agenda is licking. it is looking pretty busy. we'll be live at the all england club in a few minutes for all the latest news from wimbledon, but we're starting in new zealand where a thrilling british and irish lions series has ended in a draw. the score was 15—all in the third test. so honours even at the end of the tour, with both teams having won one match. kate 6ornall reports from auckland. in six weeks, the british and irish lions have transformed from no hopers into a genuine threat. new zealand's fort was invaded by a red army. it would set the tone for a breathless first half, the pace not always matched with precision. that came from the all blacks' beauden barrett who picked out his younger, taller brother jordie to set up the opening score, a try finished by ngani laumape, but born in the barretts' back yard. new zealand's captain was making his 100th appearance, but it was the debutants
5:32 pm
who were stealing the limelight asjordie barrett made his first test start one to remember. but the all blacks' dominance wasn't reflected in the score line. penalties kept the lions within reach as elliot daly kicked for the horizon. new zealand strained every sinew to hold back the lions, sometimes illegally. but playing here at eden park is a test of nerve. 0wen farrell could never be faulted there, this, the kick to level the match. a refereeing decision would deny the all blacks a chance for victory. this series ended an improbable draw. the series has delivered a fitting finale. the two areas have won respect but they have fallen agonisingly short of what could have been the greatest triumph. warren 6atland entered his press conference after the match wearing a large red nose. that was because one new zealand newspaper had depicted him as a clown after the all blacks won in the first test. to come here to new zealand, against
5:33 pm
back—to—back world champions, and draw the series, it is an unbelievable achievement, considering that we were completely written off. everyone was talking about this being a 3—0 whitewash. this group of players have shown unbelievable character. it has been tough. it was tough when we were awarded the penalty. that is probably something i will think about for a long time, whether we go for the corner and put the food on the throat or do you take the three points? there were two minutes to go. if you miss, you're probably going to get the ball bag on a dropout 22, while we try to get the ball back from kick—off, which we did not manage. i thought it was better safe than sorry, get the three points. those decisions
5:34 pm
are 50—50. i would like to congratulate the british and irish lions for drawing the series. it has been a fantastic three match series. both teams have played their hearts out. it has come down to the wire. we have ended up with a hand on the trophy each. it is a bit like kissing your sister. there is not a lot in it for anybody. at the same time, it has been a wonderful advertise men to rugby. —— wonderful advertisement for rugby. lewis hamilton is going to have his work cut out tomorrow if he's to finish on the podium in the austrian grand prix. he was third in qualifying, but a penalty means that he'll start back in eighth on the grid. his team—mate valterri bottas will be on pole, with world championship leader sebastian vetterl second. nick parrott reports. lewis hamilton's qualifying was over before it began. a five place penalty for changing his gearbox meant the best he could manage was sixth place. he dominated friday practice at the red bull ring but the scrappy final session cost them. as he was trying to put that right, roman 6rosjean came to a halt.
5:35 pm
bringing out the yellow flags and denying the crowed a thrilling finale. thousands of dutch fans had come to support max verstappen but they were left disappointed as he could only manage six. there was delayed for a valtteri bottas as he claimed the second pole position of his career. with championship leader sebastian vettel right behind the thing, the race will be a damage limitation exercise for hamilton, starting from eighth. whether they have buried the hatchet since the coming together in azerbaijan remains to be seen. they shook hands before being interviewed. handshake, please my friend? 0nly interviewed. handshake, please my friend? only for hamilton to refuse to do so again. it feels good. i really enjoy driving in front of you guys. thanks for the support. i enjoyed it today. the car was getting better and better as the group was coming up. i had a decent lap in the end, not perfect but good enough. england's cricketers are building a good lead at lord's on the third
5:36 pm
day of the test against south africa. they were 97 ahead after the first innings and are continuing to make good progress. quinton de kock helped keep south africa within reach of england. his 50 from just 36 balls was the second fastest in a lord's test. but the tourists were all out for 361. vernon philander the last man to go. he'd also reached 50. keatonjennings has lost his wicket for 33 as england began their reply, but it's still looking pretty good for the home side. let's show you the score. a short time ago england were 111—1, giving the hosts a lead of 208 runs. andy murray's been back on centre court at wimbledon this afternoon, but he wasn't playing. he made a rare appearance in the royal box. with news of what the centre court crowd has been watching and the rest of the day's news, let's cross live tojohn watson. 0ver over to you. many thanks. we will start with the
5:37 pm
action on centre court. novak djokovic is taking on a latvian opponent. djokovic looked as though he was in trouble when he dropped the first set 6—4, but he took the second set 6—1. it is currently going with serve in the third. the latvian has tumbled down the rankings. he had to receive treatment from his trainer at the start of the third set. he has had difficulties with injury, a troublesome 2016, injuries keeping him out. the trainer massage in his bag at the start of the third set. he seems to be going 0k, toe to toe with djokovic in the third set. 4—3, going with the server at the moment. let's look at what else has been happening in the main's draw. —— men's draw. sam querrey, who knocked novak djokovic out of wimbledon a year ago, tookjust five minutes to wrap up victory againstjo—wilfried tsonga.
5:38 pm
their match was halted due to bad light last night, and with tsonga on serve when they resumed, querrey broke immediately to progress in five sets. not long out on court for both of them today. the 13th seed, 6rigor dimitrov, is through to the last 16 at wimbledon for only the second time in his career. it took the bulgarian one hour to race to a two—set lead before his opponent dudi sela retired through injury. another retirement. we have seen plenty of those. in the women's draw it looked for a while like there might have been a big upset on the cards. number one seed angelique kerber was a set down and in a tie break in the seconnd against american shelby rogers, who's ranked 70th in the world. but the top seed managed to level the match and then broke rogers twice in the thrd set to take the tie and book her place in the last 16. she was delighted to do so in front ofa she was delighted to do so in front of a massively supportive crowd on two. kerber will now play the 2015 finalist 6arbine muguruza. she eased into round four with a straight sets win over
5:39 pm
romania's sora na cirstea. the spanish 14th seed tookjust over an hour to record a 6—2, 6—2 victory. ninth seed agnieska radwanska is through to the fourth round, but like kerber she too had to come from a set down against timea bacsinsky of switzerland, 3—6, 6—4, 6—1 the score in that one. these are live pictures from court one where 5th seed caroline wozniaki has been taken to a deciding set by anett kontaveit of estonia. wozniacki is pictured. kontaveit took the first and wozniaki needed to win a tie break in the second to draw level. wozniacki taking control of the decisive set. she's leading 5—1. she was the winner at eastbourne, so she
5:40 pm
has been playing well on the grass in the lead up to this. let's bring you some news in the doubles. disappointing news in the ladies‘ doubles for great britain's heather watson and naomi broady. they lost to 13th seeds kirsten flipkens and sania mirza, 6—3, 3—6, 6—4. disappointment for heather watson, who was knocked out of the singles yesterday. 0ut who was knocked out of the singles yesterday. out of the women‘s doubles. what of andy murray? he was in the royal box, almost tennis royalty himself. roger federer certainly is. he found time either side of training to appear on centre court as he prepares for his next match. he beat fabio fognini yesterday in four gruelling sets. it would not be wimbledon without the british public being put through the ringer. he looked in trouble at times, but there he is, how training

at wimbledon today as he prepares for his next match. now play tomorrow, but we should see andy murray in action in the fourth round on monday. james. thank you very much. a minor scare for chris froome at the tour de france. he went off the road on a descent during the eighth stage, but he was quickly back on track and retained his yellowjersey. he has a 12 second lead ahead of what will be a tough day in the mountains tomorrow. 0ne mountains tomorrow. one third of the 21 stages complete, the tour de france reached thejura mountains near the swiss border, challenging climbs and concentration needed for chris froome and team. not a stage where you can win the race but you can easily lose it. 6eraint thomas and chris froome close to doing that but they were soon back in the action. with steeper climbs and store tomorrow, a breakaway group seized the chance to fight for the stage victory. lots of
5:42 pm
ha rd fight for the stage victory. lots of hard racing between the contenders for the overall title, but chris froome and team sky tier comparatively unscathed. at the front, a french raiders seized his chance for glory. the 24—year—old, in his first tour de france, having the ride of his life. plenty of effort put in behind by chris froome‘s challengers but his team—mates wrote them down efficiently. the headlines grabbed bya efficiently. the headlines grabbed by a young frenchman, and aim to watch for the future. a scramble for positions behind, but no change in the battle for the yellow jersey. afamiliar the battle for the yellow jersey. a familiarface the battle for the yellow jersey. a familiar face and the battle for the yellow jersey. a familiarface and a familiar jersey. that is all the sport for now. i will be back with more at 630. now it is time for click. on july 12th, the internet, as we know it, will change.
5:43 pm
go to amazon, twitter, reddit or many other sites and you could be asked to wait on a slower connection, or pay extra, or you may be blocked altogether. thankfully, these warnings aren‘t real. they‘re part of an internet—wide protest, with the aim of protecting net neutrality. net neutrality is the basic principle that protects our freedom of speech on the internet. it‘s the guiding rules that have made the internet into what it is today, and it prevents our internet service providers — so the cable companies like comcast, horizon and at&t — from controlling what we can see and do when we go online. under the net neutrality principle, all data should be treated equally by isps. that means they can‘t slow down companies who refuse to pay to have their data prioritised, and they can‘t charge customers for fast access to certain data.
5:44 pm
there is no referee the field. but the us federal communications commission, the fcc, voted recently to overturn rules from 2015 which enshrined these neutrality principles, and which meant telecoms firms could be fined for noncompliance. and that, says the organiser of the july 12th protest, will play right into the big cable companies‘ hands. if we lose net neutrality, you‘re going to start to see the internet look more like cable tv. you can imagine trying to go to a social media site and getting a notification from your internet service provider saying — oh, sorry, if you want to access this site, you need to upgrade to our social media package. you need to upgrade to our streaming video package. you need to pay us more, in order to access the same sites that you‘ve been using day after day for years.
5:45 pm
they can also go to those sites and charge them extra fees in order to deliver their content to users. and, of course, those fees get passed on to all of us. so it‘s really an issue that affects every single person that uses the internet, regardless of your political views. it‘s gonna hit us in the pocketbook. and this won‘tjust affect us internet users. if you use an american web service — which, let‘s face it, is most of us — it may affect the service that they provide to us. the fcc says that the 2015 rules are unnecessary and may have stifled investment in next—generation networks. and free—market think tanks agree. well, this fight could have been resolved ten years ago if it were reallyjust about net neutrality. this has really primarily been a fight about the fcc's power to regulate the internet. we had our first major update to our communications law 20 years ago, and that law made it unclear exactly how the fcc was going to regulate
5:46 pm
the internet, and that ambiguity has left the agency to wrestle with this issue for a decade. and in a nutshell, there were simpler, better ways of dealing with this issue. there were other agencies that could have addressed net neutrality concerns when they arose, starting back in 2008. and, er, congress has three times tried to legislate, and both republicans and democrats, i think, share the blame for missing the opportunity to craft a solution that would resolve this issue. and that, unfortunately, has led us to where we are today, which is a thorough rule—making at the fcc to deal with this issue of legal authority, when the rules themselves — the core of net neutrality — have really never been controversial. well, i wonder what the original inventor of the concept of net neutrality would make of these changes. you know, it's...very disappointing, let's put it that way. so, you know, the 0bama
5:47 pm
administration had finally put net neutrality into law, done a good job with it, everyone was happy, but out of nowhere, the trump administration... and it's not been any public movement against net neutrality, it's really the cable and phone companies wanna make more money, let's put it that way. and they have somehow kind of, under the cover of trump's madness, managed to start the process on net neutrality. the thing is making the government realise that there are severe electoral consequences for messing with net neutrality. it has to be understood as the third rail, that you mess with this and you're going to get people very angry and descending on constituents. whatever happens i have the feeling it will not be the last word we hear on net neutrality. just hunch. welcome to this week‘s tech news. volvo announced they‘ll only make

electric and hybrid cars from 2019. formula one racing team williams unveiled a carbon—fibre baby carrier that can transport critically ill newborn infants by ambulance or helicopter. the ba bypod protects against vibrations and can be kept at a constant temperature. dubai police are to introduce a robot cop and autonomous patrol cars. the vehicles will use 360—degree surveillance technology to identify suspicious objects, launch a mini drone, and even give chase to suspects. 6oogle‘s in the doghouse again — this time, for a deal with a uk hospital that didn‘t respect the privacy of patients. the uk‘s information commissioner ruled that 1.6 million patients‘ details were provided to 6oogle‘s deepmind illegally, to help develop an app to diagnose kidney failure. and could tickets be replaced by inaudible sounds?
5:49 pm
well, it seems maybe. ticketmaster has teamed up with listener, a company that uses ultrasonic sound technology to transmit information between devices. checking into a venue with an app would give off the sound, and organisers could lock who was in and where they are — unless your phone dies, of course. whether you love or loathe a trip to the shops, retail is changing, but there‘s more to it than people just shopping online instead. can i just see what colours there are downloaded? here‘s an idea that takes shopping online a step further. o ne com pa ny‘s software allows you to go a shop‘s website and, from there, you can connect to a shop assistant in store, who‘ll be wearing a pair of smart glasses.
5:50 pm
yeah, what do we have there on the right? there are some bags. can you please take the cream bag off the shelf, and can you open it and show me the compartments? the shop has actually found that the same experience being streamed to a mobile has actually proved more popular than the smart glasses. and although i found the experience pretty good, it does of course have some limitations. oh, i see, i wasn‘t expecting that. i thought it was going round your waist. i‘m glad i asked you. if, when shopping online, you‘re worried about getting your size right, then these smart leggings could help. they aim to be able to measure you and tell you the exact right size ofjeans that you should be buying. hmm! likea6love hopes to measure women for the right size and style of jeans for their body shape. the stretchy measuring leggings connect via bluetooth to a smartphone app, where your stats will be stored, so you can keep track of your body shape.
5:51 pm
oh, my waist measurement here seems to be about five inches larger than i thought it was and a fair bit bigger than the jean size i normally wear. when i clicked through to the suggestions, my size was as expected. the company say these measurements represent where the jeans would sit, rather than actual measurements you would expect. might upset a few people along the way, though! but another trend emerging is that we head back to the high street, but shop assistants as we know them don‘t. these online stores are open 24 hours a day, with only a series of cameras and microphones keeping an eye on you. you gain access to your smartphone, use it to scan your purchases and pay, then head off. their first branch opened in sweden last year, followed by another in shanghai recently. the launch of amazon 6o‘s first store in seattle appears to have been delayed, but aims to replace queues and checkouts by using computer
5:52 pm
vision, deep learning and data from sensors. it will see what you‘ve picked up in store and, in turn, charge your amazon account. but one us company has another idea about self—service. well, on first view, this does just look like an ordinary vending machine that happens to have a tv screen on it, but a machine like this could soon be selling alcohol, cannabis and even guns. let me explain more. the device uses biometric sensors to identify users by the veins in their fingers, meaning you can turn a standard machine into an apparently secure one, only dispensing goods to the person with the right to collect them. and, yes, in the us, that item could be a gun. the company claims the machinery
5:53 pm
uses the same level of security employed by us military and large corporations to access facilities, but they do add... everything is malleable. if it‘s connected to the internet, they say ‘where there‘s water, there‘s sharks‘. where there‘s internet connectivity, somebody can make their way in there, perhaps. we‘ve jumped through every possible hoop we can do to make sure that only the person standing in front of it is able to get the product that they want. it‘s that sort of regulated product. right, and there are guns and alcohol available too? so some fellas are going out hunting and they leave late from work, and they rush out of the kitchen to catch up with their friends. usually, you‘re far outside the city limits, you‘ve made a whole plan, you‘ve made your trip, you get out and you say, "oh, i forget my ammo". in this situation, a secure machine would allow you to pick up some ammo, or even a replacement gun, if you‘re in the system. maybe get their whiskey off the one side, get their ammo off the other, and head on into the camp and have a fine week of hunting. ok, maybe this isn‘t solving a problem that many people have.
5:54 pm
and suddenly, the idea of shops without assistants doesn‘t seem so surprising. that‘s it for the short version of click. you can find us on twitter and for the longer version on iplayer. thank you for watching. if you ordered some fine weather for the start of the weekend, that is a box ticked for the most of the game. —— most of the uk. it was fine for much of scotland. this weather system brushing the far north of scotla nd system brushing the far north of scotland right now, moving south, if you have been in the far north of
