5:00 pm
this is bbc news. i'm lukwesa burak. the headlines at five. president trump is in singapore for an historic summit on de—nuclearisation with north korean leader, king jong—un. mr kim arrived several hours earlier. the meeting with mr trump will take place on tuesday. tory mps are urged to rally round theresa may as the government prepares for a series of crucial parliamentary votes on brexit. marking 100 years since women first won the right to vote. processions take place across the uk. hello. donald trump has arrived in singapore, ahead of tuesday's historic summit with the north korean leader. tuesday's talks will be the first—ever meeting
5:01 pm
between a sitting us president and a north korean leader. on saturday mr trump described it as a "one time shot" at peace. washington hopes the summit will kick—start a process which will eventually see mr kim give up his nuclear weapons. after reaching singapore, kim jong—un said the whole world is watching events in the city—state. over to singapore now and my colleague christian fraser: hello, and welcome to singapore. we are on the eve of something quite unprecedented here in singapore. there's nothing routine about this summit at all. first time a sitting president has meant a north korean leader on and normally there would have been weeks and months of preamble and meetings among lower—level aides before the leaders would even think of coming together, but of course this time it is the other way around. and this time the us administration have had three months to prepare. there is an awful lot that we don't know about the
5:02 pm
summit. one of the biggest questions is how serious kim jong—un summit. one of the biggest questions is how serious kimjong—un really is about denuclearisation and whether he can meet the american timeline thatis he can meet the american timeline that is being sent out. very strong words today from senior republicans in washington. this time, they are not going to be messed around by the north koreans, this is not going to go on for yea rs, this is not going to go on for years, said senator lindsey graham, they want something to happen during they want something to happen during the first time of this administration. so those are fairly stiff demands for the north korean side. nonetheless, kim jong—un stiff demands for the north korean side. nonetheless, kimjong—un was here and plenty of time. he arrived first on sunday afternoon, and very quickly was into a meeting with the singaporean prime minister. san francisco he has been watching the developments. from the g7 in canada, to be summit in singapore, commentators are hoping president trump's meeting with kimjong—un will be a great deal smoother than relations with its allies, who have been deeply unsettled by the imposition of us tariffs. and asked about how he felt the summit would
5:03 pm
pan out, the president said he would know within the first minute of meeting mr kim about whether the north korean leader was serious about nuclear negotiations. you know the way they say that you know if you're going to like somebody in the first five seconds was not you ever hear that one? well, i think that very quickly i'll know whether or not something that is going to happen. i also think i'll know whether or not it will happen fast. the north korean leader has already arrived in singapore, amid tight security. both men have had an extraordinarily volatile relationship over the past 18 months. trading insults and threatening war before announcing a surprise face—to—face meeting. the summit is costing around $20 million to stage. but the prime minister of singapore says it's a price worth paying. i would say plus or minus, it's around $20 million. we may be able to recoup a little bit of that,
5:04 pm
but i think it is a cost which we are reeling to pay and is dark —— it is our contribution to an international endeavour which is in oui’ international endeavour which is in our profound interest. the prime minister and north korean leader appeared relaxed in each other‘s company before the cameras. but what happens behind closed doors when mr trump arises anyone's guess. the historic summit will take place on the island. mr kim has achieved the queued also sitting at the same table of the president of the united states will stop he wants to rebuild the north korean economy. but whether he will ultimately give up his main bargaining chip is still debated. no final deal is expected from this summit. jane frances kelly, bbc news. one of the most interesting things about the north korean delegation is the way they arrive. if you want to know how deep the sanctions are, you only need to look at what mr kim arrived on. he came on airchina
5:05 pm
look at what mr kim arrived on. he came on air china 747, it that had been loaned to him by the chinese side which tells you two things, first of all he doesn't have a blanket enough to get here today summit in singapore and secondly just how involved the chinese side is that every step of this negotiation. and also what is interesting is the size of the delegation. really the top figures from the hierarchy in north korea, they are all here. so his his chief of staff, his head of foreign affairs, and his sister came on a separate plane here to singapore as well. so the top echelons if you will, of north korea, they are all here in singapore for the time being. there are three hotels that are at the centre of the world's attention at the moment. here in singapore for this historic summit. the white house confirmed last week that the two leaders will hold their talks at the 5—star hotel on sentosa, a resort island off singapore's southern coast. the fact it is separated by water makes it
5:06 pm
quite a secure venue. there is just one road onto the island, and of course that can be cut off. however the two men are staying elsewhere. mrtrump is at the two men are staying elsewhere. mr trump is at the shangri—la hotel where us presidents have stayed before. a 5—star hotel and the diplomatic restrict of the city. and mr kimjong—un, diplomatic restrict of the city. and mr kim jong—un, well, diplomatic restrict of the city. and mr kimjong—un, well, he is staying at the saint regis hotel, which is to stay nine minute walk or a five minute drive from where mr trump is staying. and there is a presidential suite in that hotel which would cost you a cool $10,000 a night. my colleague has been taking a hose look at the two leaders choice of accommodation. so, this is the back interest to the shangri—la hotel, and this is where we saw president trump's motorcade come in a short while ago. you can see the level of security there. we saw him in his big presidential limousine called the monster, waiting domata waiting to us as he. for me the key moment
5:07 pm
was a couple of moments later we saw from flash photography, the very distinctive pictures of the national security adviserjohn bolton with his distinctive walrus moustache in the back of that car. many people have speculated president trump would not bring him to this summit, well, he is here. and he is very, very much disliked by the north koreans. so that is an interesting aspect of this. we are now going to go off to work kim jong—un is staying, which is not far away. so that took all about five minutes. we are now outside the saint regis hotel. this is where we saw kim jong—un arrived in his big motorcade, in his my back limousine earlier today. this is a huge event for singapore. it's probably the biggest diplomatic event that is taking place here, well, in this country's short 60 year history. when kim jong—un arrived here this afternoon, there were north korean
5:08 pm
cameramen standing in this street, filming his motorcade arrived. when he left to meet the singaporean prime minister that were north korean cameramen and his motorcade coming it as he went through the streets of singapore. whatever happens during the there is a historic breakthrough are not coming kim jong—un has already achieved one of his goals, and that is to turn himself from a few months ago being a complete pariah, cut off from the rest of the world, to effectively answering the world stage as a statesman and as a leader of the nuclear power. rupert wingfield hayes there. in other news now... labour has said it will seek to change the government's plans for brexit in the commons on tuesday. but labour's brexit spokesman, sir keir starmer, said the votes this week were not the last chance to alter the british approach, there would be other opportunities in the coming weeks. here's our political correspondent, susana mendonca. dark clouds are gathering ahead of a crucial vote for the government this week. backbench tories are threatening
5:09 pm
to rebel and labour says this will not be their only chance to do so. the idea that this tuesday or this wednesday is the last chance saloon on a single market deal is misconceived. there will be another chance with those bills. i hope we get significant victories this week on the things that matter, which is the meaningful vote, the customs union. the "meaningful vote" refers to giving parliament the power to force ministers back to the negotiating table and have a final say on what to do next if there is no deal between britain and the eu. the government wants ministers to keep hold of that decision—making power. people thinking about voting against the government this week need to think very seriously about it. the most important thing is we get the legislation through, because it avoids the legal cliff edge. it makes sure we have a smooth legal transition in relation to brexit and sends the prime minister into thejune council with the wind in her sails. from opposite ends of the brexit debate, brexiteer iain duncan smith and former home secretary amber rudd, a key remainer, have joined forces to urge potential tory rebels to vote with the government.
5:10 pm
but this veteran pro—european says this week's votes could help the prime minister to fend off cabinet brexiteers. when we get to a final negotiated deal with the european union then we will be in a crisis if they behave in exactly the same way and insist on vetoing it all. we need to rescue the prime minister from this terrible treatment she is getting. theresa may will be hoping that any showdown with her backbenchers now won't leave her in a weakened position ahead of talks with eu leaders later this month. susana mendonca, bbc news. the leader of the ‘leave—dot—eu' campaign, arron banks, is facing new allegations about the extent of his contact with senior russian officials. it's being reported that he held more meetings than previously disclosed, and that he was offered the chance to take part in a business deal, involving six russian gold mines. the allegations have raised fresh questions about whether the kremlin sought to influence the outcome of the eu referendum in 2016.
5:11 pm
mr banks says he is the victim of a ‘political witch—hunt‘. the labour leader, jeremy corbyn, announced new proposals to ensure all hospitality workers receive 100% of their tips, if his party comes to power. he called on the owners of restaurants and bars to stop taking a cut from the money given to staff by customers. he claims any eventual changes could affect around 2 million people across the uk. processions have been taking place all over the uk to mark 100 years since the first women won the right to vote. those taking part wore either green, white or violet, the colours of the suffrage movement. our correspondent, frankie mccamley, has been speaking to some of the marchers in central london. hundreds of thousands of women, i can't tell you how many women i've seen with banners, trust and the
5:12 pm
suffragettes uniform, making their way from hyde park, hitting all the way from hyde park, hitting all the way down piccadilly. then onto trafalgar square, right now they are coming past the downing street and they're going to make you wait right here outside the houses of parliament. and this, a very iconic area, because just a few metres away the statute of millison for said that was revealed just a couple months ago, the first female statute to make her way right here outside the houses of parliament. they're going to make their way out here and have through the archway. with me now are some of the ladies who have been coming ladies and young young ladies, who have been marching. you arejust ten. here ladies, who have been marching. you are just ten. here we go, just behind us, you can see all of them making their way past. sophia, why was it so important for you to come down today? the cut is the 100 year of women's vote. and have you had a good time? yes. is this your first march? yes. there you have it. why was it so important to bring young sophia down? i think it is important
5:13 pm
the younger generation understand the younger generation understand the importance of what the suffragettes did in that they really use their vote in the future. and to come down together, what has the day been like for you? very warm, very sunny but so fantastic to see so many women coming together and you can hear the very noisily celebrating the 100 years of women having the focus today. speaking of different generations, barbara, thank you so much forjoining us. tell us why you are here today, why you have been marching. we are a group of members from a women's organisation, and we thought it was really important to come along and join in the march. and we have been extremely energised to see so many women of every generation here. watts and just seeing all these women of all generations, all different backgrounds, walking alongside you, marching alongside you. what does that mean? i think it's marvellous. i think it has given a great lift for women, particularly equal pay, as they are
5:14 pm
all shouting. and it's been a wonderful day. that said. there are a lot of movements, the mithun movement, what you think of women's rights —— the metoo movement. movement, what you think of women's rights —— the metoo movementlj think rights —— the metoo movement.” think it's changed a lot over the last year, have a? various problems in hollywood, etc. it is all for the good. wonderful. thank you very much. they do offerjoining us, and good luck with the rest of the march. not want to go, only a couple hundred metres until they make their way to the very end of this, just outside the houses of parliament. going through a big archway that says "my vote really makes a difference". prince philip turns 97 today. buckingham palace say the duke will be spending it privately. he did not attend the trooping the colour military parade yesterday. the duke retired from public service last year. you can see more on all of today's stories on the bbc news channel. but for viewers watching on bbc one wales, it's time now for bbc wales today with garry owen. goodbye. you're watching the bbc news
5:15 pm
channel. let's remind you of our top stories this hour. president trump is in singapore for an historic summit on de—nuclearisation with north korean leader, king jong—un. mr kim has already been greeted by singapore's prime minister. the landmark meeting with mr trump will take place on tuesday. france condemns president trump's description of the canadian prime minister as "dishonest and weak" in a tweet following the g7 meeting in quebec. and we're going to stay with that story. before president trump flew to singapore, he left g7 summit in canada in some disarray, after he rebuked the canadian prime minister, justin trudeau. mr trudeau told reporters that canada would not be pushed around on trade tariffs, prompting mr trump to accuse him of being "dishonest and weak". the president then withdrew his
5:16 pm
endorsement of a joint communique on the importance of free trade. from quebec, our correspondent, gary o'donoghue reports. scarcely 24 hours after the president arrived at a summit he had thought about skipping altogether, he was off, defiant in the face of a clutch of world leaders still furious with america's unilateral trade tariffs. the warning signs that something was wrong came early when the president showed up late for a leaders' breakfast on gender equality, one of the few areas where there had been hope of a meeting of minds. while officials worked towards a final agreement all the leaders could sign up to, the president was sticking to his position, blaming former us leaders for allowing the rest of the world to take advantage of america on trade. it's going to change, 100%. tariffs are going to come way down because we... people cannot continue to do that.
5:17 pm
we're like a piggy bank that everybody‘s robbing, and that ends. and it was clear the president didn't much like how he was being spoken to. a moment captured in this photograph, later posted on social media by the german chancellor herself. but when she faced the cameras, she said a common statement didn't mean the differences had been taken off the table. translation: for us, it was important that we have a commitment to a rule—based trade order, that we continue to fight against protectionism, and that we want to reform the world trade organization. but it was the words of the canadian prime minister, justin trudeau, who announced he had got all seven countries to sign up to the final agreement, that seem to have tipped the president over the edge. i have made it very clear to the president that it is not something we relish doing but it is something that we absolutely will do because canadians are polite, reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around. that led to a barrage of tweets from the president,
5:18 pm
on board air force one itself. in one he said, "based on justin's false statements, i have instructed our us reps not to endorse the communique." they worked hard to avoid this kind of meltdown and they thought they had done just that. but in the space of two or three tweets, the divisions between these supposed allies are now as deep as ever. gary o'donoghue, bbc news, quebec. big companies will soon have to justify the gap in salary between their highest paid executives and the average worker. the business secretary, greg clark, wants publicly listed companies with more than 250 employees to publish their pay gap every year. labour says the policy won't change pay disparity, and accused the government of being unwilling to take on bosses. our business correspondent, joe lynam, has more. three of the best paid executives in the uk last year — sir martin sorrell, rakesh kapoor and pascsal soriot. between them they earn £70 million.
5:19 pm
the amount senior bosses get paid compared to their staff will be brought into sharp relief from january next year. the average earnings for a ftse100 chief executive were £4.5 million last year, that is 120 times more than what the average employee earned. from january, publicly listed firms must publish their pay ratios. but there will be no official cap on them. nobody is suggesting that successful business leaders shouldn't get remunerated well, but we do think there is an accountability. we do think by having this transparency — and for the first time being able to see that ratio between the top pay in the boardroom and the average worker — that will mean that bosses will think twice about the decisions that they make and that will lead to better decisions and fairer decisions for everybody concerned. the cbi said comparing pay ratios between different sectors was as meaningless as comparing apples with oranges.
5:20 pm
the tuc welcomes the new rules, but called for workers to sit on company boards. joe lynam, bbc news. well, kate bell, who is head of economics and social affairs at the tuc, told me a little earlier about the practical ways that pay unfairness, at work, could be tackled. if we actually want to reduce those gaps which we think is really important, then we need to demand more change. when chief executive pay is actually said. the idea of giving the employee a voice in the boardroom, don't you think i will add a further obstruction to getting things done and moving forward? but at all. employees have a voice in the boardroom, a guaranteed place in most european countries, in 19 of 27 european countries, this is perfectly normal business. i'm often quite surprised at when executives think there'll be something strange about allowing the people who work
5:21 pm
for them to actually speak up on issues like chief executive pay. we have seen these disparities really wide did pretty horrifically over time. i think your package will say that the average ftse chicken executive now earns 120 times the pay of the average worker —— ftse chief executive. the idea is that fair economy is for everyone. if we go down the street, it hasn't been passed yet, it is generally next year. our that translate? you said narrowing that gap, are we talking about taking back executive pay? are increasing the pay of low earners? well, we have seen workers in britain and the law was done my longest —— lowest pay grades for two yea rs. longest —— lowest pay grades for two years. i think most people will realise their pay has not been going on while the pay of chief executives has been. i think we very much want to see an increase in pay for the average worker. that is absolutely our priority. but i do think we should be looking at the pay of those top boxes will stop and we should be calling for a change. many
5:22 pm
people running these businesses are saying we are going to risk losing our top—flight executives here. because the brain drain, they are going to go somewhere where they don't have to go, through this process. like i think the leader of the tuc, and a lot of these high earners truck and don't really care. is there a risk that that is going to happen and they will leave? well, i think they have to think about why people are motivated to do their job. most of the school to do our job. most of the school to do our job of course partly for the pay, but also because we want to make a success of ourjob. we care about it, we are passionate about it. and i think most people would want to employ somebody who is motivated by those kind of reasons rather than whether their pay packet is, you know, slightly bigger than the next boss next door. labour think that the tories aren't doing enough. i think tuc generally also said that, it isa think tuc generally also said that, it is a start. labour think that we should be taking on the bosses. how was that you agree with that?l really important step forward would
5:23 pm
be allowing workers to speak up in the boardroom and on the committees that actually said that pay. that is about workers having a voice, it is not about them having power over those decisions, but i think it is important we have allowed people who have got the everyday experience of work to actually have a say on these discussions. that was kate bell of the tuc. the labour party have announced new proposals aimed at helping hospitality workers retain 100% of their tips. party leaderjeremy corbyn called on restaurants and bars to stop taking a cut from the money given to staff by customers. he believes it could affect up to 2 million people. earlier i spoke to amy bjork, a former waitress who told me about her situation. i've been working in a very popular american restaurant chain for about almost two years now. and when i first started, i was reassured that 100% of my tips would go to me, and me alone. however it was in practise that we would've to about 10% to the bartenders and 10% to the serving
5:24 pm
assistance and the people who make our deserts, because they affect the service we provide just as much as we do, so they deserve a cut. so i was under the impression that i would be receiving at least 80% of the tips that came to me. however, in recent times it is now been put into practise that 40% of the tips we aren't on card are being taken from us and given to the kitchen staff instead of a pay rise. in my opinion, i think the company are trying to play this off as a fair move for the kitchen, because they deserve a cut of our tips as well, which i agree with. however this is not a which i agree with. however this is notafair which i agree with. however this is not a fair move in any way whatsoever. it was an independent decision, it was no consultation with any of the staff, however they did save that they did speak to us, which they did not. and it is not a solid pay rise to the kitchen either. because obviously tips fluctuate, and so as natural living wage has gone up, they're not getting the pay rise they deserve. do you agree with what mr corbett
5:25 pm
has a? he's described it as boasted that money has been stolen? absolutely. apart from leaving, what other options do hospitality staff have to them? i definitely think joining a union, absolutely unionizing. i would joining a union, absolutely unionizing. iwould not joining a union, absolutely unionizing. i would not be here today if i did notjoin unite, the union, andi today if i did notjoin unite, the union, and i think of so much for the work they've been putting in for us the work they've been putting in for us and the support we have been getting from workers alike. i would definitely advise joining a union. where does the problem come, any? is it with cash and card? a lot of customers are very it with cash and card? a lot of customers are very confused. before i make customers are very confused. before imakea customers are very confused. before i make a kid, iwill always customers are very confused. before i make a kid, i will always ask are you going to get this money. just clarify it for us. so, we had a lot more people tipping in cash now, as we have started to spread the word on what has been going on. but in a lot of places, we were told by the company that they had reviewed its competitors and that is what had led to this decision to take card gratuity, so it kind of implies that
5:26 pm
because everyone else is doing it, it is ok for us to do as well. so i think for most chains, that hard gratuity are not going to the service. quickly, we are running out of time, do you get the sense that these joint schemes which i've heard about and also the tipping scheme, is being used underhand by restau ra nts is being used underhand by restaurants to talk up on minimum wage, or to make up rather a minimum—wage? what your impression our experience? so, i am on the absolute minimum, and i have been ever since i have worked there, but i've been ok with that because the tips i get bumped up my income. they make a tips i get bumped up my income. they makea did tips i get bumped up my income. they make a did a difference. absolutely, absolutely. that was amy bjork there, speaking to us earlier. would you share food with a stranger? an app is encouraging people to do just that, to cut down of food waste. it is based in the uk but used around the world. nothing today?
5:27 pm
0k. poppy trawls cafes in her north london neighbourhood like this once a week. she is a so—called food waste hero, collecting and sold food from businesses that would otherwise have gone to waste. some seeded bread in there. brilliant. she takes the food that she has salvaged back to her home but it will not remain there for long. so we have white loaves... she uploads pictures of each item onto an app, and locals can then request it for free and come and collect it. food waste is a huge environmental problem, this is the little bit that you can do. the un estimates $1 trillion of food is thrown away every year. to fight food waste, people are also sharing food they have bought for themselves, then realised they no longer need. this polish student has arrived to collect some unwanted ice cream. i think it is crucial to fight against food waste. also, i am a student. this way i get free food! the app is run by a small team from this north
5:28 pm
london flat. it has been going forjust over three years but for its user base to grow, a fear has to be overcome... food is such a personal thing. will people be willing to share food with strangers that have looked after it? we have built into the olio app all the same checks and measure you have profiles and user ratings, and things can be reported to us. people looking after the food have to be happy letting strangers into their home. i feel like, if anything, it means i get to know people in my community and i feel more secure. whether it is to save the planet or save themselves some money, more and more people are embracing this way of sharing food with strangers. women across the uk are marching
5:29 pm
together to create a living art work together to create a living art work to separate 100 years since british women won the vote. they don the colours of the suffragette movement, green, white and violet. as part of a mass procession. as the procession in cardiff prepared to get under way earlier, our reports are spoke to some of those participating. thousands of women in cardiff today to make this procession. here, louisa, and the lien was a great, great, great aunt. how does it feel to be here today? immensely, immensely proud. i can't tell you, i'm very, very moved. it'sjust immensely proud. i can't tell you, i'm very, very moved. it's just such a monumental occasion for history. so proud, yeah. thank you. also joining me here is beth and from
5:30 pm
resident, who has been responsible for making this quilt. so us a little bit about what you have been doing, up until now, to get this quote ready? i've been working in the craft centre with my friend lisa here, the lead artist on the project. we wanted to make a contemporary runner. it is actually a club, again reflecting the quote tradition of women in wales, making quilts was a way of earning a living. we felt it was quite an important message. we have used a welsh slogan that says "use your voice, use your vote. welsh slogan that says "use your voice, use yourvote. because welsh slogan that says "use your voice, use your vote. because the battle isn't over. we have to keep raising our voices. what is it like for both of you to have been working on something here, like hundreds of other people, thousands of other women across wales, and bringing it here and seeing all these other banners that other women have been making, and you're part of the procession? i think is the fact it's the cooperation really, and that commitment across the country. as a whole. i think we still feel very strongly that there is more to be
5:31 pm
done. and in order to achieve equality and a short women are treated fairly throughout the world. i think that is a really significant feeling. you start off in your isolated spaces, working together and building commitment in the community, and then seeing and multiply on the scale, it is fantastic. really interesting. thank you to the both of you. there are thousands of people here today. hoping to really make that mark. let us find out how the weather is looking. iam let us find out how the weather is looking. i am a glass half—full kind of girl so the weather over the last few weeks has been pretty good. there have been a few sharp showers and we run the risk of a few but for most of us, sunny spells to close out our weekend and it will feel warm in the sunshine as well. showers are widely across the east of scotla nd showers are widely across the east of scotland and north east england. we run the risk of a few sharp showers developing in the south west and of these happen they could
5:32 pm
linger through the night. elsewhere, it will be a quiet night with nest forming and temperatures between nine and 14 degrees. almost up in repeat, a cloudy and grey and murky started the day. the will pardon —— michael byrne threw promptly and nibble away at the cloud. a few isolated and sharp thundery showers around but in the warmth, highs of 24 degrees, 75 fahrenheit. this is bbc news, our latest headlines. president trump is in singapore for an historic summit on denuclearisation with north korean leader, king jong—un. mr trump described it as a "one—time shot" at peace and said both leaders were in "unknown territory". mr kim arrived several hours earlier and was greeted by singapore's prime minister. his summit with mr trump will take place on tuesday. president trump has described the canadian prime minister
5:33 pm
as "dishonest and weak" in a tweet following the g7 meeting in quebec. france's president macron criticised mr trump, saying diplomacy cannot be dictated by "fits of anger". companies are to be forced to justify the pay gap between their highest and lowest earners. the tuc has welcomed the move, but says workers should also be appointed to boards. let's get a full round up of the day;‘s sport and reshmin chowdhury is at the bbc sport's centre. good afternoon. rafael nadal has won the french open for an 11th time, extending his own incredible record at roland garros. his straight sets win over austria's dominic thiem continues an unpredicidented era in paris that started back in 2005. patrick gearey was watching the "king of clay" the action. for all the french ceremony on men's

5:35 pm

after they were relegated from the championship. he replaces manuel pellegrini — who left the chinese super league club to join west ham united. world cup favourites brazil warmed up for the tournament with a 3—nil win against austria. neymar was making his first start since february but it didn't show as he doubled brazil's lead midway through the second half. there were also goals for gabriel jesus and phillipe countinho. the bids from morocco and the joint effort from the united states, canada and mexico to host the 2026 world cup have both been ratified by fifa. it was widely expected — but it's the next step ahead of the fifa congress on wednesday. it was a british one—two at the leeds round of the world triathlon series with vicky holland leading home georgia taylor brown.... holland, who is the olympic bronze medallist managed to recover from a difficult changeover from swimming to the bike and went on to take the victory. it's holland's third

world triathlon series win but her first on home soil. georgia taylor—brown finished seventeen seconds behind for her first world series podium. i was pretty much no use and felt i was holding on all day. it took me a full lap to find my legs. i cannot believe i have won it. every time i thought i would win, i told myself not to, think about what you're supposed to be doing. finally, i thought, yeah, this is mine now. the crowd was incredible. no matter how much i was hurting, i wanted to smile. whenl much i was hurting, i wanted to smile. when i went past my family, there was a big cheer and i kept smiling. it was amazing. last year i did not make the start line because i hurt my ankle the day before so
5:39 pm
when i set up the transition this morning, i said i i am already a winner. in the men's race alastair brownlee wasn't involved due to injury and his brotherjohnny was competing but pulled out midrace after feeling unwell. the race was won by south africa's richard murray with wts series leader mario mola in second just three days after breaking the british record with a new lifetime best, dina asher—smith ran just a hundredth of a second slower to win the women's 100m at the stockholm diamond league. at thursday's meeting in oslo, she ran a 10.92 but was narrowly denied victory by ivory coast's murielle ahoure. today, the 22—year—old ran a 10.93 but managed to go one better, and beat ahoure to first place. asher—smith's victory isn't the only british success in stockholm today. lorraine ugen has claimed victory in the women's long jump, reaching a season's best of 6.85m with her first attempt. in april's commonwealth games, ugen helped england's100m
5:40 pm
relay team to gold — but the long jump is her preferred event. and this really is something special. 19—year—old cuban juan miguel echevarria jumped 8.83m today in the men's event. it would have been the world's longestjump in 23 years but there was a high wind factor, so it won't count in the record books. it's only 12cm behind mike powell's world record, which was set in 1991. britain's zharnel hughes ran the fastest 100—metres of the season at the racers grand prix in jamaica last night. he clocked 9.91 seconds — a personal best for him and the first time he's gone under 10 seconds. on the all—time british list, only linford christie has run faster over the distance, although james dasaolu has also run 9.91. just under an hour and a half
5:41 pm
to go until the start of the canadian grand prix with what's looking like the most unpredictable race of the season. sebastian vettel will start on pole, ahead of valtteri bottas and max verstappen with lewis hamilton fourth. there's little to choose between the top three cars. you can follow the race on radio 5 live and bbc sport website from 6:30 tyson fury will next fight on august the 18th. the heavyweight won on his comeback in manchester last night after 2 and a half years out of the sport.... comfortably seeing off his unlikely albanian opponent sefer seferi who was totally outclassed in both technique and size. fury, who's the former unified world champion, looked farfrom his best and after two rounds of posturing including being warned for playing—up to the crowd — he eventually got down to fighting, an uppercut seemed to do the damage, and seferi retired just before the start of the fifth round.
5:42 pm
i enjoyed it. it was about coming back and getting the ring rust off and getting under the lights. having and getting under the lights. having a little dance and getting used to being back in the ring. if i'm honest, i could have knocked him out in ten seconds. that is being honest. what with that have done the? i got four rounds. i enjoyed it. take the exposure, baby! there's no word yet on who his opponent will be, but it'll certainly be a much tougher test than seferi — and boxing commentator steve bunce says fury is far from his best. can he get back into shape? i do not know. there were a couple of moments when it turned serious and there was
5:43 pm
an interview he was doing and also mike costello on the radio and he said, i realise now, afterfour rounds of clowning, how hard it will be. i think he has come back, made a few quid, entertain 15,000 people, got people talking, but now he is going away on monday to training camp. that's all the sport for now. you can find more on all those stories on the bbc sport website. that's bbc dot co dot uk slash sport that's all the sport for now. coming up next on bbc news is the film review. hello, and welcome to the film review on bbc news. to take us through this week's cinema releases, mark kermode is back with us. good to see you.
5:44 pm
what have you been watching, mark? a very mixed bag. we have jurassic world: fallen kingdom — the dinosaurs are back again. mcqueen, a documentary about the british designer, and the boy downstairs, a rom—com with a difference. and i was horrified to read that the firstjurassic film was 25 years ago! a really long time ago. it was a really long time ago. ok, so, jurassic world: fallen kingdom, three years after the last film, jurassic world... yes, yes. keep up with it. so bryce dallas howard and chris pratt agree to re—team for a rescue mission. this time, they have to save the dinosaurs. that's the twist. the other way around. the dinosaurs are left on the island at the end of the last film. but the island is volcanic, the volcano is going to explode. they need to go and save the dinosaurs, otherwise they will go extinct for the second time. however, inevitably — this being jurassic park, jurassic world — the mission is not what they signed up for.
5:45 pm
here's a clip. do you remember the first time you saw a dinosaur? the first time you see them, it's like...a miracle. you read about them in books, you see the bones in museums, but you don't really believe it. they're like myths, and then you see...the first one alive. this is not your fault. but it is. no. this one's on me. i showed them the way. there is a question in that clip about, "do you remember the first time you saw a dinosaur?" do you remember the first time you sanurassic park? yeah, i remember going to the cinema. and do you remember being really overwhelmed by it? oh, it was terrific. everyone was talking about it. it was a huge thing.
5:46 pm
and moments of real terror. the moments when the velociraptors are chasing them into the kitchen, and the kids hiding in the sink, so really... the problem now is that it does feel like we have seen most of this before several times. on the plus side, this is directed byja bayona, who made a monster calls, who made the orphanage, who made the impossible, who i think is a director who really can do special effects, but also make movies with heart. and there are moments in this film in which you see the film that you think he probably wanted to make. there's one particularly gripping scene in a child's bedroom which recalls an iconic scene from nosferatu. and you get a little bit of that, the thing that you got in the firstjurassic park — "this is scary, this is creepy, this is actually. yes. the rest of it feels a lot more mechanical. again, for something which started out as a film about fairground rides involving dinosaurs, it's perhaps unsurprising that it feels mechanical. they've swapped the central roles with the chris pratt and the bryce dallas howard characters. that's kind of an interesting reversal. and the characters are much more human this time. in the last movie, i did say that the dinosaurs seemed much more convincing than their human counterparts. this time,
5:47 pm
bryce dallas howard has got rid of the high heels, she's now got sensible shoes on, and you do feel there is human interest. but the best i can say is it's fine, and there are moments in it that i think, "oh, yeah, ok, that's the movie i would like to have seen." but it's very much a mechanical blockbuster roller—coaster ride. i think it's better than jurassic world, which i felt was rather soulless. it is better than that. but if you think back to the first time you sanurassic park — that visceral thrill. there are moments injurassic park that are every bit as good as jaws, and we're not in that league any more. yes. plus, it's not the end. there's more to come. oh, i can't wait for the next one... she lied! mcqueen, however, a fascinating troubled man. does it make a good film, though? it does. and i should say at the beginning, i know nothing about fashion. i mean, literally nothing, which is why i dress like an old ted. and i didn't know this story.
5:48 pm
because i, you know, live in a bubble. if it's not in a movie, i don't know about it. it's the story about lee alexander mcqueen, who was this east end boy who grew up to be a ground—breaking designer. worked for givenchy. he had his own label, caused a real stir. and this draws on taped interviews from throughout his life. he says that he was no good at school but he was always drawing clothes when he was in chemistry lessons. and from a very early age, he started apprenticing, and people immediately started to see that he had real, naturaltalent, real, naturalflair. an extraordinary amount of talent. and what this shows you is, yes, some of the early shows are shocking. and i'm pretty certain i would have been one of the naysayers saying, "oh, this is outrageous," because i don't really understand the fashion world. but what i loved this documentary — the best documentaries take you into a subject about which you know nothing. this talks about the way in which the darkness in his life is reflected in his work. it's got really, really candid interviews with those that were close to him. it looks at every side of his character. and it does... by the end of it, i thought, "ok, i can see this. i can see why some of these
5:49 pm
creations were really astonishing, i can see the sculptural quality of those." and also the shows — as pieces of theatre — looked quite breathtaking. oh, so dramatic! yes! i was won over, and as i said, i went in from a position of complete ignorance. what i know about fashion would not fill the back of a postage stamp, and ifound this really, really emotionally engaging. and, therefore, if you love fashion, then there's even more in it for you. yes, absolutely! absolutely! fascinating, albeit with a desperate ending that we are, sadly, all aware of. but interesting documentary. and a newcomer, i think, for number three. so the boy downstairs, which is the first feature for writer—director sophie brooks. stars zosia mamet, who is in hbo's girls. and she plays somebody who lives in new york, she's gone away to london for a year. she's come back, she's moved into an apartment and she discovers that the boyfriend that she left, that she broke up with, is now living in the same apartment block. he is the boy downstairs, which is kind of difficult because, you know, should they be friends, should they talk to each other?
5:50 pm
and the film is about that awkwardness that they have now, and also flashing back to their past relationship. here's a clip. so how are you? oh, i'm good. thanks. yeah. i hear you've been making music and that it's going really well. stilla struggle, but, yeah, i mean, it's going pretty well. i'm on the road. wait, you're touring? oh, no, sorry. i meant the figurative road. i see how that would be misleading. i'm working in commercials. that's great. yeah. ben, that's great. thanks. yeah. i'm really happy for you. i love it when zosia mamet says, "you're touring?" "just on the road to —" and that's...the whole film has that kind of tone to it. and what i really like is, the writer—director is obviously a fan of nora ephron. she captures the awkward intimacies and sort of alienations of relationships, but the thing this really reminded me of... there was a movie many years ago
5:51 pm
by nicole holofcener called walking and talking. it was the first film which i ever saw catherine keener. and it had that same sort of loose limbed intimacy. it's a way of making something that looks very casual, that looks like these characters have just turned up and they‘ re just having these conversations. that takes real precision to do. and although, it was weird. after the screening, a couple of people who i had seen it with, found the characters really annoying. i said, "but that's not the point. you understand their lives and you believe in their relationship." i thought it was funny, i thought it was charming, it was moving. i thought it was really well put together. it moved me to tears at one point. i was really surprised by how much it charmed me, but it did very much. and i love nora ephron, and that awkwardness that we saw there is such a human reaction, isn't it? "i don't know what to do here!" it's that lovely thing about not quite being able to say the thing they want to say. not being able to address the fact that they've been
5:52 pm
in a relationship before. i thought it is great. i think you'll really like it. if you can seek it out, it is worth seeing. and you still think the best one this week is the breadwinner. yeah. it's terrific, isn't it? it's so great. it actually seems to have done pretty well at the box office. i think it's outperformed expectations, which is great, because it's a hard sell, you know, a story about a young girl in afghanistan, the taliban. it's not an easy sell. but i think the animation is beautiful. i think nora twomey‘s done such a good job with this. it's adapted from a book, and i think it's done a brilliant job of putting that on the screen. and the best thing about it is it talks about a really difficult subject matter, but it does it in a way that i think younger audiences could watch and appreciate. oh, i think you could almost use this as a history lesson in schools. "this was life under the taliban and how difficult it was." we think of it is difficult for women, but it shows that it's also difficult for an awful lot of men. and this is one of the great things about animation. i mean, animation is such an extraordinary, vast giant, but you can do things in animated movies that perhaps you couldn't do in a live action film — tell a story in a way that makes it sort of comprehensible to a really,
5:53 pm
really wide audience. you can see from the clips we're looking at now, i mean, the animation is absolutely beautiful. i love this film. it's such a treat and, you know, i'd advise everybody to seek it out. i thought it was such a wonderful piece of work. it is. it's terrific. and beautiful to look at, despite very difficult subject matter. despite some very dark subject matter, absolutely. yes. and a quick thought about dvds for anybody staying in this weekend. so i talked about this when it came out in the cinema. the new version ofjourney‘s end, which is a brilliant adaptation of the play — and also the subsequent novel, taking on elements from that as well. i thought it really captures the camaraderie of the trenches. it's a brilliant performance by paul betta ny, who i've always been a huge fan of. but, you know, when you have a text that you know as well asjourney‘s end — and everybody‘s seenjourney‘s end — and you think, "what can you possibly bring to this that's new?" and then you watched an adaptation like this and you go, "0h, 0k. that." itjust made it come alive, it made it contemporary, it made it, you know... it's a very dark story, but i think it's told with real compassion. i really loved it.
5:54 pm
but does it work on a small screen? because this can be our hesitation with big, big scenes like that. you sort of feel a bit bad, actually — guilt — watching it on a small screen. i'm going to say yes, because an awful lot of it takes place in a small, enclosed space. yeah, i'll be honest with you. i think it would work watching it on an iphone, because i think the performances are that good. although actually, the cinematography is very good. butjust not enough people have seen it. it needs to be seen. ok, fair point! and, therefore, available on dvd, and entirely valid. entirely valid. thank you very much. really interesting week, actually. thank you very much. thanks, mark. see you again next week. a reminder that you can find all the film news and reviews from across the bbc online at the website, bbc.co.uk/markkermode. and all our previous programmes are on the bbc iplayer, as well, of course. that's it for this week. see you next time. thanks for being with us. bye— bye. hello there.
5:55 pm
weather in recent days has been stuck in repeat, hasn't it? well we are doing it all again for the next couple of days, but there are signs of things to change later this week. but if you have got blue sky and sunshine, just like we had in this weather watchers picture from telford, i hope you are out enjoying it. the rest of the day will stay dry for most of us, still the risk of a few thundery downpours. in the last few hours, the satellite picture has shown the clouds breaking up quite nicely. cloud across scotland and northern ireland through this afternoon. one or two showers across the east of scotland and the north—east of england. if you keep the sunshine, you will see highs of 23 or 24 degrees. we run the risk of a few sharp showers developing into the south west by the end of the day and these may linger through the night. elsewhere the showers will fade away, it is going to be another quiet night, a little bit of misty nest forming a little bit of mistiness forming and a fair amount of cloud again spilling back in off the north seacoast. with overnight lows of between nine and 14 degrees.
5:56 pm
here we are, back in repeat for monday morning. a cloudy and grey start for many of us. the best of the sunshine will be further west and those temperatures will start to rise quite probably. then the cloud will break up, the sunshine will burn it back towards those north coasts for many and we run the risk of a few sharp, possibly thundery downpours into the afternoon. if you keep the sunshine, you will get the warmth with highs of 24 degrees, 75 fahrenheit. a little bit cooler along the north seacoast if we keep the cloud. there will be a change to come on tuesday as we start to see the wind swinging around to a northerly. not particularly strong, but a freshers source but a fresher source and there will be a fair amount of cloud around. hopefully there will be a little bit of brightness, from time to time but with that northerly breeze, the temperatures will be down four or 5 degrees in some places. high spells of between 15 and 20, the maximum on tuesday. wednesday we will see the cloud begin again in the north—west. there is a change to come in the forecast, some wet and windy weather on its way overnight wednesday into thursday. yes, we start to see more

of a mobile westerly flow as an area of low pressure moves centre and brings heavy rain and strong to gale—force gusts of wind, 60 mph for a time in scotland, as it pushes further south—east, it will weaken off considerably, so not that much rain for southern areas, but our week ahead starts off warm and dry, it will turn unsettled and then a little bit fresher. thank you. take care. hello there. weather in recent days has been stuck in repeat, hasn't it? this is bbc news. i'm lukwesa burak. the headlines at six. president trump is in singapore for an historic summit on de—nuclearisation with north korean leader, king jong—un. mr kim arrived several hours earlier. the meeting with mr trump will take place on tuesday. tory mps are urged to rally round theresa may as the government prepares for a series of crucial parliamentary votes on brexit. also: 100 years since some women
