6:31 pm
an element of independence in there, particularly for support as well so people can feel confident about where they can report these things and at the same time how it can be dealt with. a report by 13 us federal agencies has concluded that humans are the dominant cause of the global warming. the white house has downplayed the conclusions. the prime minister of lebanon, saad—al—hariri, has resigned saying in a live television broadcast that he fears for his life. mr hariri's father, who was also prime minister, was assassinated in 2005. and only half of the fixed speed cameras in the uk are actually switched on according to new data obtained by a freedom of information request. road safety campaigners have described the situation as concerning. now let's find out how

6:33 pm
it's not often that we start with scottish football, but history was made today. celtic‘s unbeaten run in domestic matches now stands at a british record 63. that surpasses their old mark that had stood for 100 years. to break the record they beat stjohnstone 4—0 — who just happened to be the last team to beat them back in may 2016. here's our scotland football reporter chris mclaughlin. a century ago in the month the the united states entered the first world war, a group of celtic players set a record. today as those who fell in that conflict and others we re fell in that conflict and others were remembered, the current crop we re were remembered, the current crop were out to better it. it was never really in doubt. the class of 2017 have been swatting aside all in their path in scotland. sinclair put them on their way in perth. the signalfor the party them on their way in perth. the signal for the party to start came after dembele doubled the lead in
6:34 pm
the second half. stjohnstonejust wa nted the second half. stjohnstonejust wanted it to end — an own goal made it three though. by the time ntcham added the fourth, the record had been well and tru smashed. added the fourth, the record had been well and tru smashedm added the fourth, the record had been well and tru smashed. it is an incredible feat by the players and a wonderful example of professionalism and creating high standards each day. they have faced everything as players. domestic games unbeaten, 63, celtic‘s history—makers march on. celtic are now three points above aberdeen in the premiership. the dons could only draw with hamilton. hibs beat dundee 2—1, rangers won 3—0 at home to partick and ross county held on to beat motherwell 3—2. john bennett is with me to look at the day's premier league matches. the top five are all playing tomorrow, john,
6:35 pm
but what we had today was a bit of movement down at the bottom, some more managers feeling the heat, but sean dyche's stock continues to rise sam vokes1—0 at southampton. it is an incredible story. burnley winning1—0 against southampton away from home. eleven points away from home already this season in six games. last season, they only got seven points all season away from home. so sean dyche with an international break coming up... will everton come calling? he was the hero, nick pope. but they're level with chelsea, arsenal. and out of the top four on goal difference. they're seventh, because liverpool are winning. it is a great story. the burnley fans are loving it. southampton struggling in front of
6:36 pm
goal and failed to score in ten of the last 17 top flight games. the margins are tough for teams like us the margins are tough for teams like us and southampton. but we found a way to that. i'm enjoying the group. notjust the way to that. i'm enjoying the group. not just the eleven, way to that. i'm enjoying the group. notjust the eleven, the actual group, their mentality and their training and their professionalism. there are things people don't always see. the thing i guarantee when i got here, this group will give everything and for five years i have had groups that give everything. you can never underestimate that. we did everything we could agains an opponent that was defending 90% of game. they had one chance. opponent that was defending 90% of game. they had one chancem opponent that was defending 90% of game. they had one chance. it was a goal. another late win this one. such good
6:37 pm
will behind eddie howe and that was an important win for them at newcastle. four times this season they have conceded late winners. they time they scored a late winner. eddie howe called it a defining game. newcastle dominated the first half. gayle had a goal ruled out. but second half bournemouth were the better side and perhaps deserved it. very even game. big win for eddie howe and for bournemouth. 0ut very even game. big win for eddie howe and for bournemouth. out of bottom three. he had been under pressure. we created chances in the first half maybe to do something more and the second half we are making too many mistakes and to concede in the, two minutes in extra time, it is always even worse. the feeling is, you have to be disappointed when these things happen. any win in the premier league is
6:38 pm
huge, we have had a lot of points snapped and to go the other way is a massive win so, late in a game where it was strange, because second half we we re so it was strange, because second half we were so good and it felt it wasn't going to happen and it happens with the last kick of the game. huddersfield have blown hot and cold and a good result. and the best goal. the goalkeeper was the hero. he was fantastic. 1—0 win against west brom and they're up to tenth. two home wins in a row. i think the story developing is about west brom, they were chants from the fans, we wa nt to ny they were chants from the fans, we want tony pulis out. he has got a new contract. but they're in poor form, with three defeats in a row and no win in nine. so the
6:39 pm
huddersfield fans delighted, but the west brom fans turning against tony pulis. to go such a long time without winning, but things cop spine and you —— conspire against you, but i'm strong enough and old enough to resist it. you need the players and i worry about the players more than anything. this club, i have been here nearly three years, when i took over this club was in a poor condition. it in a better condition. we have got better and better. this is the first run we have had. one of highlights since i arrived two weeks ago we have beaten manchester united andi ago we have beaten manchester united and i know all this was one of biggest moment for this club today, this was one of the biggest moments for us as a team i think. the effort the players put on the grass today, how they worked. we scored an
6:40 pm
unbelievable goal and then when we needed we had the goalkeeper. it was a deserved win. tony pulis feeling the heat at west brom. so paul clement, they have lost three in a row and the swans are in the bottom three after losing to brighton. the fans showed their angen to brighton. the fans showed their anger. glen murray with a scruffy goal. knockaert did the hard week. why doesn't chris houghton get linked with big jobs. tammy abraham played well. but disappointing for the club, three defeats in a row in the club, three defeats in a row in the premier league and last season we saw the swansea fans turn against
6:41 pm
two managers. but paul clement under pressure, because they're in the bottom three. snier when the goal went in, we —— — when the goal went in, we lost our shape and identity. in the second half we had two big chances. blocked oi'i half we had two big chances. blocked on the line and a fantastic chance at the end. but over all, the performance is disappointing. when i look at the team, i see a team that is really low in terms of confidence. i see a crowd that's very frustrated with what they're seeing. but there is no one more frustrated and disappointed than me. if you can stay in the game, you have always got that chance. we know there are going to be games where there are going to be games where there aren't going to be masses of chances. we have got to make sure that the few that perhaps we have we have got to be clinical with them. four draws and
6:42 pm
have got to be clinical with them. fourdraws and up have got to be clinical with them. four draws and up with draw in the premier league in the lunch tooichl kick off. there was a lively match in the early kick—off at stoke as they drew 2—all with leicester. crouch delivered from the bench. leicester took the lead twice. it was the visitors who opened the scoring, vicente iborra with his first goal for the club. it didn't take long for stoke to respond though, as moments later shaqiri rifled home the equaliser. leicester took the lead once again through hard work from riyad mahrez. but stoke pulled themselves level for a second time, thanks to peter crouch who is the only player to score over 50 headed goals in the premier league. he had a chance right at the end and could have won it. seven premier league appearances this season. three goals. we can hear from the managers. pleased with the attitude of my placers, it —— players, it was a
6:43 pm
good game with passion and fight and it was interesting. it is difficult to acceptjust it was interesting. it is difficult to accept just one point away. we have had a lot of chances. it is a good season. i think it is an educating game for us. we showed character. we came back twice against a side like leicester, who obviously want to get their noses in front, because that is their ideal scenario, they can play counter attack with the threats they have got a attack with the threats they have gota and attack with the threats they have got a and you're going to be at risk. so we understood that, but we showed character to go at them and change things around a bit in that second half and big pete's had an impact as he always does. there is one match under way at the london stadium. liverpool are winning. but there has been a goal for west ham. west ham could have
6:44 pm
taken the lead. ayew has been in fantastic form. hitting the post. but then mane back in the team, setting up salah, nice finish from him. 2—0 three minutes later. a scruffy corner and noble forced a save and matip following up and lanzini has made it 2—1. defeat would leave west hall on —— west ham on nine points after level games. the last time they were in that position they went down. and 3-1 now for liverpool. we can't keep up with this. 0xlade—chamberlain, just dropped by england, that is a nice response for gareth southgate. that isn't up—to—date. it is now 3—1 to liverpool. let's show you what that means for
6:45 pm
the table. look at burnley fantastic. all those top five teams are playing tomorrow and it is tight. brighton up tomorrow and it is tight. brighton up to eighth. that is fantastic. huddersfield tenth. with the matches at the bottom, we can see swansea dropping into the bottom three. that is why paul clement was so frustrated. a huge game for everton tomorrow against watt tord. —— watford. maybe time to bring in a new manager. here are tomorrow's matches. starts with the london derby, spurs against palace and manchester city against arsenal.
6:46 pm
chelsea have a great record at home against manchester united and have lost just one against manchester united and have lostjust one of 15. against manchester united and have lost just one of 15. always friction with jose mourinho lost just one of 15. always friction withjose mourinho back in time. yes. and can david unsworth do anything to get the everton job? the pressure is on them. no more goals at the london stadium. still 3—1 to liverpool with 25 minutes left. thank you. john will be back at 7.30 to have a full update on those matches. there are 27 fa cup first round ties today. nine teams have fallen to teams from lower divsions, including three league sides have come unstuck against non—league opposition. oxford city and maidstone are celebrating tonight, as are national league boreham wood who came from behind to knock out league one side blackpool. they equalised with just over 20 minutes to play and dan holman was the 88th minute match winner,
6:47 pm
to send the home fans at meadow park delirious. 2—1 the final score. and the manager gave plenty of the credit to himself. the emotion i was feeling on the side looich going 1—0 down to then go level, i thought i will take it now and go and have a replay. but to go and win it, in the mapper we did. —— minuterwe did. go and win it, in the mapper we did. —— minuter we did. i felt we go and win it, in the mapper we did. —— minuterwe did. ifelt we had go and win it, in the mapper we did. —— minuter we did. ifelt we had a couple of goals left in us and we got stronger as the game went on. the two subs did well. i take credit for them. i had dropped them at the start and they were lived and i think they have rammed it down my throat! slough town had a great day at the office. the southern premier league team, in the 7th tier, beat gainsborough trinity from the 6th. midfielder matt lench, scored a hat—trick in their 6—0 away win. the 2008 winners of the fa cup,
6:48 pm
portsmouth, are out in the first round after a 1—0 loss at league two side luton town. james collins' first—half strike was the difference at kenilworth road. newport are leading walsall from league one. it is 2—0. with about 20 minutes to go. two more non—league sides knocked out league opposition. there are the details. maidstone won 4-2 at there are the details. maidstone won 11—2 at cheltenham. the bbc sport website has all the day's fa cup results, plus news from the championship. brentford are playing leeds at griffin park.
6:49 pm
horrible fumbling from leeds keeper andy lonergan made it easy for neil mowpay to put the home side 1—0 up. brentford also missed a penalty in the first half. they're into the second half now. and brentford still lead 1—0. you're up—to—date with all the football. liverpool still lead west ham 3—1. england have their first win on the board at the rugby league world cup. after defeat to co—hosts australia in their opener, they ran in five tries to beat lebanon by 29 points to 10 in sydney. but scotland were thrashed again, going down 711—6 to new zealand in christchurch. david ornstein rounds up the action. serenading the start of a unique
6:50 pm
event. the first rugby league match between england and lebanon — the lowest ranked team at the world cup. but no shortage of local support for a side that includes part—timers, builders and electricians. the early graft was done by england. watkins who scores the opening try. beaten by australia in their opening game, this a more straight forward task. lebanon though would have something to say about that and when they levelled the scores we had a contest. england took control, yet their path was not smooth. after half time, one player was accused of biting and he will face a review. there was no question about england's next try. burgess with a magnificent solo effort. burgess
6:51 pm
down the middle. they had even brought an injured sibling in the stands to his feet and put the country on the course for the quarter—finals. hoping to be there are scotland, although facing new zealand is always daunting, a memorable draw with them last year gave cause for optimism. but that quickly dissolved, this the first of 14 quickly dissolved, this the first of 1a times their line would be crossed ona 1a times their line would be crossed on a day that saw 1a times their line would be crossed on a day that sanohnson become new zealand's all—time record scorer. scotland's only consolation was provided by thomas as the kiwis piled on the misery and still they could qualify for the last eight with victory over samoa next week. our reporter dave woods was watching in sydney as england beat lebanon — and afterwards he got the views of two former coaches.
6:52 pm
victory for england and some satisfaction reached, but there were areas of concern. a 29—10 win against lebanon. was that good enough from england? the most important thing was to win. we said in commentary it is like the challenge cup, win the game and move on and look at the areas they have to be strong in. they were strong in the forwards. the way they defended. just some things in attack. they're still adjusting to the speed of the game. next rountd i expect them to go better. where do you see improvement needed? in the execution of attacking players. certainly getting near the opposition's line. i thought there was a bit of scruffiness around that and a bit of clunkiness. arley in the game nay —— early in the game nay created opportunities. still an element of improvement in the kicking game and
6:53 pm
the scruffiness i'm alluding to is not giving away penalties at certain times. how tough is the challenge? perth will be 20 degrees hotter against a french side. they were very physical against australia and then they emptied their tank and couldn't responsibility. i think the big thing for england at moment is to make sure their defence it good, which it has been. but they need to be more clinical in attack. they are not getting their combinations right and ona not getting their combinations right and on a dry surface they have got to nail that. and on a dry surface they have got to nailthat. a and on a dry surface they have got to nail that. a victory for england against lebanon, they are up and running for the tournament, but now it is off to perth to face france in a week's time. england are second in their group, behind australia, after that win. scotland are bottom of theirs — the other game in that group ended in a 32—18 win for tonga over samoa.
6:54 pm
still to come on sportsday: the curtain is raised, ready for the autumn internationals, as the all blacks beat the barbarians and canjustin rose make it two tournament wins ina row? four england cricketers hit half—centuries on the first day of the opening match of their ashes tour. it's a two—day game in perth, against a western australia eleven. henry moeran is there for us. england will be satisfied with their first day of competitive cricket during this tour, four of the batsmen that england are looking for to get into form did so. half
6:55 pm
centuries for vince, mallan and balla nce centuries for vince, mallan and ballance stoneman to reassure the selectors. the two failures for cook and root won't be too much of a concern. they have proved their quality before. tomorrow, we will see what england's bowlers have got. england's women were also in action down under this morning, against a cricket australia women's eleven — a warm up match ahead of the ashes test. on day two of three, they bowled out their hosts for 271 before closing on 87 for 3 in their second innings — a lead of 47 runs. with the first of the rugby union autumn internationals next week, there was a curtain—raiser at twickenham today as the world champions, new zealand, started their european tour against the barbarians. entertainment was guaranteed and there was almost a shock as the baba's led 17—10 at the interval. all—blacks captain beauden barrett said
6:56 pm
there were a few blank looks on their faces at half—time but they'll learn a lot from the experience. three second—half tries including this one from nathan harris saw new zealand win 31—22. ulster narrowly beat the pro14‘s worst team the southern kings in an amazing 12—try match in port elizabeth. the south african side, without a point heading into the game, led for the most part. but with the score at 36—all and just three minutes remaining, robbie diack powered over for the visitors. the win means ulster regain second place in conference b. justin rose has given himself a great chance to win his second tournament in two weeks. he shot 64 to move to within two shots of the lead at the turkish open, with one round to play. he's 12 under par — and thinks he could even be playing better than last weekend,
6:57 pm
when he won the wgc championship in shanghai. ireland's shane lowry and kiradech aphibarnrat from thailand share the lead. it is still 3—1 to liverpool with 15 minutes left. now the weather. it is going to be a cold night. colder than we have been used to. that cold air spreading south. if you're heading out tonight for fireworks, it will be cold. there will be some showers in western areas. these really quite blustery and heavy at times with hail, thunder and some wintriness over higher ground. temperatures two to five degrees. a touch of frost in some sheltered eastern areas. tomorrow promises to

bea eastern areas. tomorrow promises to be a better day with sunshine and dry weather. but cold for all. we start with some showers across many western and central areas. but they fizzle out in the afternoon. you can see the map lit up golden, plenty of sunshine. but it is going to be a cold one, eight to 10 degrees a best. as we head into the evening for bonfire night, it will be a dry affair for for bonfire night, it will be a dry affairfor most of for bonfire night, it will be a dry affair for most of the country. some showers in coastal areas of scotland and maybe in to northern and western wales and the far east of england. but it is dry and cold for most places. some showers not far from the channel islands. temperature there is by around sunday evening into low to mid single figures. through the course of the night, the temperatures tumble. look at the blue colours from northern to central and eastern areas.

scottish minister mark mcdonald has resigned from the holyrood government amid allegations about his private life. as the political turmoil at westminster continues, labour's shadow chancellor john mcdonnell calls for agreement on an independent system to tackle sexual harassment. when all the political parties meet my view is that there should be an element of independence in there, particularly for support as well so people can feel confident about where they can report these things and at the same time how it can be dealt with. in other news, lebanese prime minister saad al—hariri resigns,
