8:07 pm
attack. it is understood that whilst it was at the cottage, she was handcuffed to a chest of drawers. this was an ordeal that this woman went through. a kidnapper is alleged to have tried to sell her first sexual services online, and demanded a ransom of £230,000 from her agent to secure her safe release. after 60 days, she was released. this is reportedly because the kidnapper found out she had a child — after six days. the polish man who is said to be a resident in britain has been arrested for this. and there have been reports that he was ca ptu red there have been reports that he was captured because police saw him accompanying the model to the british consulate in milan. the united nations will vote later today on a proposal to toughen economic sanctions against north korea. a resolution drafted by the us, in response to recent missile tests, aims to cut north korean exports
8:08 pm
of coal, iron, lead and seafood. if approved, it could deprive pyongyang of more than a billion pounds a year. 0ur correspondent, laura bicker, joins us now from washington. i think voting's underway? this is a bill that was drafted in the last month, the us has been pushing for this. they are taking the threat from north korea incredibly seriously. in fact, in the last few hours, general mcmaster, donald trump there's national security adviser, said they will not tolerate an threatened by north korea. analysts believe that pyongyang is now capable of developing a missile that could hit the us mainland, and that has focused us minds. first of all, the real key to this is will china vote alongside the us? china has been relu cta nt to alongside the us? china has been reluctant to turn the screws on
8:09 pm
pyongyang, even though it could have a lot of influence. 90% of north korea's trade is with china. see can see the kind of influence beijing could have. back injanuary, donald trump met with president gee of china ina trump met with president gee of china in a hope of persuading him to do something about north korea. at the time, he claimed it tremendous success , the time, he claimed it tremendous success, but six months on, it hasn't been served. pyongyang's missile programmes in severe accelerating. the idea of the sanctions is to bring everyone to the table. the kim jong—un tipper down his weapons programmes and to come into talks. but washington will not give him talks until he stops his nuclear weapons programme. not give him talks until he stops his nuclear weapons programmelj suppose his nuclear weapons programme.” suppose when you look at what happened with a rhum and the 0bama administration, they did try engagement with some success —— with iran and the 0bama administration will stop i think earlier in the
8:10 pm
year donald trump had mentioned he would be willing to have talks with king john and, but only if the timing was correct. and by that, what they mean is that these dogs are firing off nuclear weapons and 110w are firing off nuclear weapons and now steps back from the nuclear weapons table. i'm hearing they have 110w weapons table. i'm hearing they have now voted to impose sanctions. this is an incredibly significant developments, because this is the security council saying to north korea, you cannot continue in this way. and it's backed by china and will strip $1 billion of north korean exports. which means king johnin korean exports. which means king john in will have a lot less funds to plough into that missile programme. thank you very much. just to repeat, the un security council has unanimously voted to impose new sanctions on north korea in response to those two long—range missile tests. we'll find it had the story
8:11 pm
is covered in tomorrow's front pages in the papers. our guests joining me tonight are john rentoul, political columnist for the independent, and ruth lea, who's an economic adviser to the arbuthnot banking group. a word of warning, depending 0n a word of warning, depending on what happens with usain bolt‘s100m final, that could shift 0ur timing isa final, that could shift 0ur timing is a little bit. scientists have warned that extreme weather caused by global warming, could kill 150,000 people in europe every year, by the end of the century. the findings come as parts of the continent endure recording breaking temperatures, with a severe heatwave sweeping across parts of italy, spain and the balkans, causing drought and forest fires. from sicily, gavin lee reports. scorching time for sicily, with a scorching temperatures, the island's greatly to be harvested early. but
8:12 pm
working in 41 degrees as brittle. translation: today, the temperature was so translation: today, the temperature was so high, we had to tell the workers to come later when it's cooler. we all suffer, the machines offer, the vineyard suffers. the fight here against the sun is reflected in vineyards across europe. dame of the wider impact has led to some governments to stay indoors in the afternoon because of the threat to public health. in the balkans, authorities have been advising people to stay indoors and increase their water intake. in hungary, it's gatekeeping cool and carrying on, and there's strong advice from hungarian officials. translation: ask elderly people if they need help and offered to do their shopping for them. don't go to market in this heat. we also draw your attention to adequate fluid replacement for children and
8:13 pm
infa nts. replacement for children and infants. he says it's very heart where years, marseille in france. it's 110 where years, marseille in france. it's a0 degrees. staying hydrated for travelling has been a key message here. this is olivia in northern spain — fla mes northern spain — flames turning the sky red and chatting highways. here in sicily, the usually packed summer street look more like ghost towns. for those hoping for a break from europe's heatwave, temperatures are expected to return to some normality late next week. this is something scientists predict we should get used, though, suggesting global warming will lead to more extreme weather patterns in the years to come. earlier i spoke to the london school of hygiene and tropical medicine's paul wilkinson — a professor who looks at the impact that the environment has on our health. he gave me his reaction to the warning from scientists that deaths related to extreme weather would increase fifty—fold
8:14 pm
by the end of the century. well, it's a study that's based on a model of the way the climate may evolve over this century under the assumption that we don't cut back on the emissions of greenhouse gases, that they continue unabated. if that does continue, the exposure patterns that are reported in this paper are those we should expect to occur by the end of the century. and, as you indicate, may suggest that there will be a large increase in the frequency of 0rd weather events. critical, they referred to the burden of heat—related deaths occurring on the most extreme days of heat will stop was at the moment isa of heat will stop was at the moment is a 100—yet events, but but in the future could become as common as an annual event. parts of europe have
8:15 pm
this heatwave, and we are seeing a big impact on public health for some people? it's already occurring. we've known that the global temperature has been rising for over a century now. it is projected to rise much further and faster in the late pa rt of rise much further and faster in the late part of this century. if there isn't a cutback in our greenhouse gas emissions. at the moment, we aren't back row cutting back quickly enough. the trajectory is very close to one of almost as usual suggests that exposure is that the paper reports would be likely as the century goes on. it will only increase, i think, century goes on. it will only increase, ithink, in century goes on. it will only increase, i think, in the case. what then needs to happen with our pace of changeable you want to fend off this sort of result? two things, we have to get used to the idea that there will be warmer temperatures. some degree of global warming is now inevitable from the amount of greenhouse gases already in the atmosphere. so we have to learn to
8:16 pm
adapt, to protect ourselves, to improve buildings. air conditioning is quite effective, but it's costly in terms of energy and contributes more greenhouse gas emissions. the other important factor in this is there is a very clear case, the need to try to accelerate the actions we are taking to reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases, so the degree of greenhouse gases, so the degree of global warming is reduced from what it would otherwise be. the headlines on bbc news: the world championships in london, laura muirand laura the world championships in london, laura muir and laura wakeman have stormed through to the 1500m final. the un security council is gathering to vote, i beg your pardon, has voted unanimously in favour of a un d raft voted unanimously in favour of a un draft resolution to impose new sanctions on north korea over its nuclear weapons programme. italian

8:19 pm
from here, when he came through the juniors, some people still do call him the british bould, because he's very tall chap. he was very confident when we spoke to yesterday after his heat. he strode up on the outside, finishing behind the former world champion from jamaica, yohan blake. he is into a final, reece prescod. and that is absolutely amazing. or send prescod. and that is absolutely amazing. orsend a prescod. and that is absolutely amazing. or send a final tonight, laura muir, didn't look very happy with herself in the first heat of the 5000m, but it's been a breakthrough season for laura muir. a much better race the 1500m for her. laura muir is into the final next week. and also through from her semifinal as laura wakeman as well. so two british girls in the final of the 1500m. one british man into the final of the 100m. let's hearfrom

brought in from across the county. a british computer expert has appeared before a judge in las vegas, charged with creating and distributing malware that harvests bank details. us prosecutors said 23—year—old marcus hutchins had admitted writing and selling the software, but his lawyer said his client denied the charges. james cook reports from las vegas. marcus hutchins appeared in a las vegas courtroom. the prosecution said he admitted writing computer code designed to steal banking details and also claimed there was evidence that he discussed how to split the profits with an accomplice. his lawyer says he denies all the charges against him. how is he doing? he's holding up and in good spirits. the family, i think, support, and the friends' support and his co—workers and the community have been tremendously supportive for him. indeed, many fellow cyber security experts regard marcus hutchins as a hero in an attack which caused chaos for the nhs and spread to 150 countries around the world.
8:25 pm
mr hutchence had been in las vegas for a hackers conference and had been living it up. the fbi made in at the airport as it was about to fly home to the uk. he'sjune in court in wisconsin on tuesday. until then, thejudge allowed his bail, subject to commissions such as surrounding his passport. his lawyers had just a few minutes to scramble together his bail money, but by the time they had done so the courts had closed, which means we will have to spend the weekend injail. the prime minister of the irish republic, leo varadkar, says it's only a matter of time, before same—sex marriage is introduced in northern ireland, the only part of the uk where it's illegal. mr varadkar spoke while attending a gay pride event in belfast, from wherejon campbell reports.
8:26 pm
this could be the single biggest parade in northern ireland this year. a sign of changing times. uniformed police officers were taking part for the first time. today is about inclusion and representation for the police service of northern ireland. we represent all sections of society. leo varadkar shows the change which has happened in the republic of ireland. he is the country's first openly gay prime minister. the state he leads voted to allow same—sex marriage two years ago, but in northern ireland, it is still outlawed. he said he had come to this event as a gesture of solidarity and expected the law will change here. i think it's only a matter of time, it's a decision for the northern ireland assembly, but i'm confident that like other western european companies
8:27 pm
they will make that decision in due course. those comments were welcomed by pride organisers. northern ireland is still lagging behind the rest of the uk in terms of laws enacted there but not here. it's time we as a community demand change, we demand the same rights as the rest of the united kingdom. the devolved administration, which will have to make a decision on marriage laws here, is currently suspended, because of a dispute between the dup and sinn fein. but during the last period of government, the dup were able to veto the measure which would have led to same—sex marriage. mr varadkar‘s intervention may increase the pressure to change the law. but this is a society where religious conservatives remain influential. and that change will be resisted. and 93, rage is believed to be

8:29 pm
supermarket for over 35 years, next month when he turns 9a, why will reg finally pack it all in? itjust wasn't fair, so i'll pack it in. reg has had five different careers during his life, having started like so during his life, having started like so many others in this area in the mines. but even after working for 80 yea rs mines. but even after working for 80 years his work ethic and commitment is still as strong as ever. he loves it, he loves hisjob. don't know what he's going to do when he's not doing it. lee to be the oldest shop worker in britain, reg is 75 years older than the youngest worker in this store. it's clear his interviews he has roads off on shoppers and his colleagues alike. he'sa

shoppers and his colleagues alike. he's a lovely man, he's beautiful. yes, everyone always greets him, a lwa ys yes, everyone always greets him, always sought a chat. it's great, the people, the customers, all wonderful. many in cwmbran have known reg says they were children, and they will be just as sad as he will be next month when he finally calls it a day. i don't believe it, he'll be back by christmas! is getting with weather now. good evening, compare to today's downpours, the evening look relatively quiet. it's easing and most will have a dry clear might, and a chilly one, particularly for the time of year. the towns and cities will see temperatures holding a little bit above
