6:30 pm
the die—hard fans were hoping for, but it's certainly something lucrative, iwould imagine. thank you. that's your latest forecast. thick cloud, dark, cold outbreaks of rain, sunday is looking a lot more cheerful. some sunshine on the way but not completely dry. this is what it looks like for the rest of the night. still a lot of cloud out there, but most of that rain is going to be fizzling away, temperatures whether you are in the south of the country or the far north will be more or less the same, say a couple of degrees above freezing. tomorrow starts off fairly bright. a touch of frost here and there but we are going to see an increasing wind blowing out of the north east, particularly round the north east, particularly round the north sea, the south—east increasing clouds as well later in the afternoon, and one or two sleet and snow showers. it will feel cold
6:31 pm
again tomorrow like it is maybe a couple of degrees above freezing, so i think couple of degrees above freezing, so ithinka couple of degrees above freezing, so i think a chilly bright day with occasional showers and snow showers expected into early monday, particularly kent i think in the coming days. this is bbc news. our latest headlines. our latest headlines. a conservative—led council in northamptonshire, which has imposed emergency spending controls, has said it's been warning ministers for years about its financial problems. donald trump takes to twitter to claim a controversial memo proves he is innocent of colluding with alleged russian involvement in the presidential election. it's emerged tonight that two more women have reported harvey weinstein to the met police over allegations of sexual assault. after getting caught in a scuffle with protesters last night, jacob rees—mogg has stepped

6:34 pm
our correspondent joe wilson was there. freezing, so this is bbc news. our latest headlines. the scottish players behind me in cardiff just the scottish players behind me in cardiffjust a the scottish players behind me in cardiff just a couple the scottish players behind me in cardiffjust a couple of minutes after the end of the game must be wondering what exactly has happened. how can they go from beating australia to being overwhelmed by wales here in cardiff. i think maybe they were guilty of perhaps trying too much too early. trying to be too creative but not getting through the phases, wales missing so many players,ed they everything about home advantage here in cardiff count. the six nations is designed to stir you. but does it inspire or overwhelm? josh you. but does it inspire or overwhelm 7 josh adams you. but does it inspire or overwhelm? josh adams was making his debut your wales here. steady now! if you get a chance snatch it. interception. opportunity for wales. scotla nd interception. opportunity for wales. scotland could see their prematch optimism disappearing after six
6:35 pm
minutes as gareth davies reached the line. wales led 14—0 at half—time. scotla nd wales led 14—0 at half—time. scotland tried the fancy stuff and failed. wales did basics brilliantly. lee half pen any scored two tries. who saw this coming? not the scotland coach. now, the welsh flourish to finish. four tries in a match means a tournament bonus point, at its best rugby is power, pace and agility. in other words steff evans. 34—7 final score. england next. manufacture it is funny, in six nations how emotions and optimism ands the mitch can change after one match. let us get post match reaction after that welsh rick i have we have trained well in the last two weeks and said to the players i think we'll bet therm, we took what we have been doing on the training pitch and been clinical and we went out and produced a good
6:36 pm
performance. i am we went out and produced a good performance. iam proud we went out and produced a good performance. i am proud of the way the guys have played but the way they have trained for the last couple of week, there was a quiet confidence in the squad. they head their heads down and played pretty well. it was a very open game in the first 15, 20 minutes, probably too open for both teams and we didn't make the most of the ball we had, because it was probably the best way of attacking and getting behind the defence, and those mistakes gave wales confidence, and from that, once they went two tries up they looked like they were into their game much easier than we with. there isa game much easier than we with. there is a long way to go in the six nations of course, but when you win your first match so convincingly, suddenly, everything seems possible. over to paris now for ireland's opener against france. there are some miserable condition, the visitors were ahead until a few minutes ago. it has not been a
6:37 pm
classic so far. jonny sexton kicked four out of five penalties but france have just turned the match right. a lightning breakfrom france have just turned the match right. a lightning break from teddy thomas, that was converted and now it is france who currently lead 13-12 it is france who currently lead 13—12 and ireland are certainly running out of time. is as you can see we are into the final 15 minutes of that game. ireland's heads are dropping. jonny sexton, as i say, he has been the main player in that game. four penalties but what can ireland do in the dying minutes of game? we will be watching any way. we will be watching any way. the women's six nations got under way last night, with wales narrowly beating scotland 18—17. france take on ireland at eight o'clock tonight. you can watch that live on the bbc red button and online. 2017 champions england begin their title defence early tomorrow afternoon, away to italy. with the drama of the transfer window well and truly behind us, manchester city suffered a rare blip
6:38 pm
as they seemingly cruise towards the title, as burnley took an unlikely point at turf moor this afternoon. a late goal from johann berg gudmundsson gave the hosts an impressive 1—1 draw against pep guaridiola's side who had a clear chance missed by raheem sterling. tim hague was watching the action. 0k, ok, so manchester city, supreme so far this season, but could they do it on far this season, but could they do itona far this season, but could they do it on a cold wet afternoon in burnley? they showed their commitment to prove that early on. captain kompany going close, and colliding with the home goalkeeper. but with the effort came the execution. dam low is a defender. it doesn't matter. and while the strong start continued, city only remained ahead thanks to their goalkeeper. before sterling had the chance to really cement his side's dominance and the manager felt that would be costly a nd and the manager felt that would be costly and he would be right. not at
6:39 pm
first though, ederson again magnificent, denying lennon a debut goal while at the other end sterling's afternoon continued to be anything but. what a miss. it was the cue for burnley to punish the league leaders. they hung on in this game and just eight minutes from the end of it, they were equals again. so, while city can do it almost in a nywetter, so, while city can do it almost in anywetter, anyday, any time that wasn't quite the case on a cold wet afternoon in burnley. let's get more on all today's premier league action. karthi isjoined by ourfootball reporter adam wild. you might have some say on where mahrez has gone, he has has disappeared not involved again. let us disappeared not involved again. let us start with manchester city. yes, top of the table. manchester city, dropped points probably not that bothered about a one all draw, the points drop, not a huge deal. they
6:40 pm
are lead —— their leaguejust a mediocre 13 points. pep guardiola won't lose too much sleep, what he might be concerned about is the lack of capitalising on the chances there, we saw sterling, a dreadful miss, if anyone is going to be losing sleep i suspect it might be them. burnley, a good draw for them. suchis them. burnley, a good draw for them. such is manchester city's dominance any team that takes points from them will consider it a good day. let us hear some reaction from that. it is may mazing the way they play, my feeling is we control it but of course when we arrive in the last win1—0 anything can happen. we were able to score the second goal, maybe it would have been easier but when this happens it is normal, so they area this happens it is normal, so they are a good team in that situation, but we were good. i was pleased. it isa but we were good. i was pleased. it is a side that are top class, we
6:41 pm
know that, we haven't beaten by them in the previous two game, we had to change something. we wanted to go long and strong and into the back—line, we didn't play with the quality needed although we that had a great chance and a great chance for a corner they didn't have too much, but for a team of their quality, second half they started well and we had to keep our shape. you are not going to dominate these game, you have to dig in, do allthe diligence, shape, which we did, kept them as minimalas diligence, shape, which we did, kept them as minimal as we could and we grew into the game i thought. he is an engaging manager. i like seeing the new signings and how they fit into the game. arsenal fitted in well. they seem to have done so far. lots of interest how they started. mkhitaryan involved in the first goal against everton, aaron ramsey scoring there. koscielny heading in a second a few minute later, so going well for arsenal. ramsey with
6:42 pm
the third, a bit of luck with that one, a big deflection but following that, the one i suspect all the gunners fans wanted to see obiang who started. he has scored on his debut in the first half. a slight hint of offside about it but arsenal we re hint of offside about it but arsenal were 4—0 up. into the second half there they remain 4—0 up so going very well for arsenal indeed. we will #k50e7 you posted on that game —— keep you posted o that game, the second half going on, we will let you know about that. so celebratory mood. but there was a different mood at manchester united, a sombre start to the game there against huddersfield town. they commemorated the 6th 0 anniversary of the munich air disaster. the fans received a commemorative book and there was a minute's silence observed before kick off at that game, but in terms of the actual match, what happened
6:43 pm
in this game as you say an emotional day. they were made to wait. they had to be patient, they had to wait till the second half. lukaku with the first goalfor till the second half. lukaku with the first goal for manchester united, then we talked about the new signings, sanchez getting united's second. that is his first goal for united let us hearfrom second. that is his first goal for united let us hear from jose mourinho. i guess we had round probably 80% of possession in the first half, but, it was not enough to score a goal. in the second half we kept doing the same. the ball arrived and then with 1—0 i felt the game was totally controlled. our defensive line was very far from from the dangerous area, then it can second goal, definitely killed again. we talked about the tributes at old trafford. west brom celebrated the life of cyrille regis. for all the black people of my age
6:44 pm
who played professionally. mac#1b was the one. —— cyrille regis was the one. if! had been was the one. —— cyrille regis was the one. if i had been cyrille was the one. —— cyrille regis was the one. if! had been cyrille regis i would have been tempted to walk cray from it all. the best way to deal with all that rubbish, that he had to put up with, the only way really was to be brilliant. really emotional day there, and it ended up being a difficult day on and off the pitch. this was a crucial one for both sides, particularly for west brom at the bottom of the premier league, they started well enough, they took the
6:45 pm
lead but three goals from southampton put them in total control of this one. west brom got a goal back. rondon pulling one back in the second half but a difficult day. west brom remain rooted to the bottom of the premier league. southampton needed a win. before that it was 12 games without a win. good result for them but west brom are good result for them but west brom a re really good result for them but west brom are really looking in trouble now.l match we mentioned earlier on, still no mahrez, two matches he has been away for now, are leicester missing him in in the first half they didn't look like it. mahrez not playing, leicester i suspect the team desperate to show they can play well without him. jarredy —— vardy put them ahead in the first half. that i we re them ahead in the first half. that i were in control, but swansea, they have got some fighting spirit. that is seven games without defeat in all competitions now, they pulled one backin competitions now, they pulled one back in the second half, so their
6:46 pm
fortu nes back in the second half, so their fortunes looking like they are turning round. let us look at the results so far from today. we have been through most of them. we have been through most of them. we haven't mentioned bournemouth beating stoke. that is an important result isn't it. stoke result isn't it. sto ke ha d result isn't it. stoke had been ahead. the other one brighton's win over west ham. a good day for brighton of course but west ham, they are falling into trouble. theirfans at ham, they are falling into trouble. their fans at the end, lots of anger among the away fans directed towards the board. very unhappy. first win this yearfor the board. very unhappy. first win this year for chris hughton‘s side. let us look at the top of the table first. manchester city's point difference down 13s we have been discussing everybody up to nine could get involved in that relegation battle. do you think the top ten are all safe? you have to think so. they will feel a lot more
6:47 pm
comfortable after the results today. manchester city, they are running away with it at the top the table. united are making some ground, spurs and liverpool in action tomorrow but it is so tight, isn't it. down a the bottom of the table, west brom rooted down at the bottom still. several teams will be involved in that relegation battle. possibly all of the bottom ten. thank you. it is not all about the premier league. we are going to take a look at the action from the scottish premiership. let's take a look at the action from the scottish premiership now. where it's a similar story, with one side dominating this season. but today celtic suffered only their second domestic defeat under brendan rodgers as kilmarnock claimed a 1—0 victory at rugby park. nick parrott was watching. steve clark said his kilmarnock side needed to play a perfect game. given they had only lost once this season he would need luck too. that arrived with boyata limping off with a groin
6:48 pm
strain and ajer injuring his ankle. celtic were exposed to danger when kilmarnock went forward. in the 70th minute they could hold out no longer. mulumbu ending his four year goal drought in style. kilmarnock‘s winless streak goes back further, they could have scored more. jordan jones spurning a golden opportunity and mulumbu doing almost everything right. killie would have paid dearly but for mcdonald saving celtic‘s only shot on target in the 90th minute. defeat wouldn't derail brendan rodgers but with the europa tie an injury list is what he doesn't tie an injury list is what he doesn't want. elsewhere, aberdeen closed to gap at the top of the premiership to just eight points after their 3—0 victory over hamilton. bottom side ross county beat dundee four one.. there were also wins for hearts and hibs while it ended in a draw at fir park between motherwell and partick thistle. tennis now, and britain face an uphill battle in marbella to rescue their david cup tie
6:49 pm
with spain, after losing in the doubles this afternoon. jamie murray and dominic inglot were beaten in straight sets by pablo carreno and feliciano lopez which means britain have to win both singles matches tomorrow to be victorious. sue barker and john lloyd watched the action. john, in the end a disappointing doubles result. think we felt going into it that jamie doubles result. think we felt going into it thatjamie murray and dom inglot were the favourites in this match i thought they were. it can happen. it is a clay court, a tough match. you hope they play at their best. if they lose they luiz, today it wasn't that way. i thought jamie murray played well but dom inglot had a day he would want to forget. he served double faults on crucial points and lopez was the best player on the court. so it is a tough match. lopez and correno busta, they target dom a fair bit. that is what you have to do. of course. he was
6:50 pm
the weak link today. he has played good matched in the past. he was trying to find it, they were trying to get him going, jamie and leon smith. almost got it back in the third set but it was too late. the momentum was with great britain after norrie's victory yesterday. now the momentum has gone to spain and the spanish captain can choose any one out of five. he just needs one. the match was the big one today. i thought we were going to win the tie. i didn't think at the beginning of the match now spain is a heavy favourite. the way correno busta was playing today i think he will be on for one of those singles. what do you think about leon smith and what he can do. do you any if kyle is fit he would love to get out there i would love him to play. it would be a boost for the tame if he does. i would like him to take on
6:51 pm
this match. he is about to be our new number one player. show what he can do, look at what he did at the australian open. i hope he plays. the single matches are tomorrow and you will be able to see them in on bbc two at 10.00, we less have live coverage of the first singles matches. that is tomorrow. that is tomorrow. cricket next, and england now have an idea what they're up against in the t20 tri series, after australia beat new zealand comfortably in the opening game. austrlia will be the first side eoin morgan's team in hobart on wednesday morning and they will be confident after winning today's rain interrupted match in sydney by seven wickets. stuart pollitt reports. australia eased to victory over new zealand in the first game of the t20 tri series in sydney. aussia fast bowler billy stanlake took three early wickets, including martin guptill first ball. despite colin de grandhomme hitting three big sixes in an unbeaten 38, the kiwis could only post 117/9 in their 20 overs. after rain reduced australia's target to 95 in 15 overs, they lost captain david warner early brilliantly caught on the boundary by tom bruce. but a quick fire unbeaten a0 from glenn maxwell steered australia home with more than three overs to spare. they play england next in tasmania on wednesday.
6:52 pm
britain's evie richards collapsed after living up to her favourite billing by winning the women's under 23 title at the cyclo cross world championships. richards won the title in 2016 and finished third last year. she was carried to the medical tent, but recovered to stand on the podium at valkenburg in the netherlands. ben tulett made it back to back world title wins for britain in the men'sjunior race. he follows tom pidcock who led home a british one two three last year. lee westwood remains in contention at golf‘s european tour event in malaysia after carding a two under par 70 in the third round. he goes into tomorrow's final day on 12 under par three shots behind spain's jorge campillo and dylan frittelli of south africa. while scotland's marc warren is one of six players tied in fifth place, that's one shot ahead of westwood who is on 13 under. he carded a third round of 69, which produced 5 birdies, including one on the final hole. horse racing, and there was a big surprise in the race of the day, as former cheltenham festival winner faugheen was beaten in the irish
6:53 pm

6:54 pm
off as the new england patriots take on the philadelphia eagles. it will be on record the coldest super bowl sunday. i am talking about temperatures down to minus 25. that won't affect the player, the fans are us. won't affect the player, the fans are us. we will be inside. a good job they rebuilt the stadium. the old one the roof collapsed because of the weight of snow. no such problems come super bowl sunday. what do you need to know about the game? perhaps the eagles the underdogs. don't mention their name too often. they beat the home side. the vikings to get to the super bowl. as for new england they have been here, done it before, they have that superstar quarterback tom brady. he is going for a record sixth win and six super bowls for his team too. they have the edge, the advantage but the eagles have come back from adversity, they lost their own quarterback in december, they brought in a new guy, he had a wobble but he is is now doing the
6:55 pm
tea m wobble but he is is now doing the team justice, that is about all you need to know apart from it is so cold. round about 20 minutes is all you need to get frostbite. so perhaps with my fingers still intact i will leave you at that. we will see you at super bowl game day. it is freezing. some dramatic news from paris, with the very last kick of the game, and the clock already past the 80 minute mark a jonny sexton drop goal has won the match for ireland 15—13. that is over france. an incredible finalfew minutes in that game. jonny sexton almost single—handedly winning the game for ireland. all the points on the board from him. let us hearfrom the board from him. let us hearfrom the man himself. manufacture one of mow moments, i was happy i got another chance, i had a kick to go two scores clear. i snatched at it. at the last moment something caught my eye and happy to get another chance to get the victory for the boys who worked so hard for the last two weeks, and all our goals would
6:56 pm
have crumbled if we had lost. it is great to be in the position we are now after getting an away win. what we re now after getting an away win. what were you thinking as you pulled your right foot back, pulled the trigger? to be honest i went back to a couple of years ago, we played treviso away, i was in the same position, almost identical situation, and just flashed back to that and had a pop, i i don't think we could have gone another couple of phases. just got there in the end. such drama. that is what it is about. there has been another goal but it was for everton. they have pulled one back. 4—1 arsenal are still leading and it was obiang who scored their fourth, leading and it was obiang who scored theirfourth, their leading and it was obiang who scored their fourth, their new club record signing. we will be back, but bye for now. today's weather good riddance, it
6:57 pm
has been awful, cold, grey, cloudy, drizzly, a by of snow on the hills. the good news if you want something brighter, sunday is kind of your day, it is going to be brighter, but not completely sunny, and this is what we reason been dealing with today, this weather front stalled across the uk, so neither is it moving particularly to the east or moving particularly to the east or moving back out to the west. it is sitting on top of us now. the low grey hanging skies and outbreaks of rain continuing. similar temperatures in london, glasgow round a couple of degrees above freezing. tomorrow and the clouds will start to break up a bit. the rain will tend to ease so there will be sunshine round. through the court of the night that weather front will be falling apart and more sunshine developing. this is what it looks like round about 9.00 in the
6:58 pm
morning. sunshine in the western isle, wales, the midlands, if you are lucky it might start sunny in the south but look at the blobbings of blue there, in the, not the english channel, that is the north sea. the english channel is down, what am i talking about? you can see increasing across the south—east so for folks in the south—east, there could be increasing amounts of cloud. as we go through sun evening ininto the night, early hours of monday you can see these blowing out of the north sea. these will turn to sleet and snow. i wouldn't be sunshine priced the if will is a covering of snow any some south—east areas on monday morning. overall for most of us monday is looking relatively bright it is that
6:59 pm
south—east part of the country that could get snow. tuesday it is the north and north—west that sees a weather front moving in. north and north—west that sees a weatherfront moving in. here north and north—west that sees a weather front moving in. here there could be a bit of snow. the basic message, with temperatures of round 2,3 message, with temperatures of round 2, 3 degrees for the next few days, for the foreseeable future, it is going to be cold enough for snow. snow not everywhere. there will be pockets where there could be a covering in towns and cities, so stay up—to—date with the weather forecast because there could be a bit of this on the way. wrap up warmly. good evening. a local council has taken the highly unusual step of imposing emergency spending controls, after saying it's facing severe financial challenges. after saying it's facing severe
