this is bbc news. i'm martine croxall. the headlines at 11: donald trump is in singapore ahead of his eagerly anticipated summit with kim jong—un. mr kim arrived several hours earlier and was greeted by singapore's prime minister. both men are confident progress can be made. it was all smiles at the start of the g7 summit two days ago, but tonight, us officials launch a stinging attack on canada's justin trudeau over trade talks. there is a special place in hell for any foreign leader engaging in this kind of diplomacy with president donald trump. tory mps are urged to rally round theresa may as the government prepares for a series of crucial parliamentary votes on brexit. also this hour: 100 years since the first british women won the right to vote. tens of thousands march across the uk to celebrate the achievements of the suffragette movement. and the king of clay, rafael nadal, does it again for the 11th time,
11:01 pm
winning the french open. also in the next hour: we'll be taking a look at tomorrow mornings papers with the journalist tony grew, and the broadcaster and writer, caroline frost. good evening, and welcome to bbc news. donald trump and kimjong un, are in singapore, preparing for their historic summit on tuesday. it'll be the first time a us president, has held talks with any north korean leader. the white house hopes the meeting will kick—start a process that will eventually lead to pyongyang, giving up it's nuclear weapons, while mr kim wants security guarantees and an end to international sanctions. just five months ago, the two leaders were trading insults, but now mr trump says, he's on a mission of peace. our correspondent, laura bicker, reports from singapore. the waiting is over.
11:02 pm
the hard work starts now. donald trump has arrived in singapore to try to do a deal that has eluded past us presidents. he hopes his unconventional political style will persuade kimjong—un to disarm. i think within the first minute, i'll know. reporter: how? just my touch, my feel, that's what i do. the north korean leader doesn't look like he's feeling his way. considering this is his debut on the world's diplomatic stage, he looked calm and relaxed as he discussed his hopes for peace with the singaporean prime minister. he's taking no chances with security. his hand—picked bodyguards
11:03 pm
have flown with him, along with his bullet—proof limousine. thousands took the chance to catch a rare glimpse of this usually reclusive leader. if mr kim is trying to transition from nuclear armed dictator to global statesman, this summit is offering him the perfect platform. at this church in singapore, south koreans pray for the possibilities this may offer. and tears for the years of war the peninsula endured. some have criticised south koreans for being overly optimistic about this meeting. but after a year of brinkmanship, most see the summit itself as progress. translation: there's a korean saying that the first spoonful of food
11:04 pm
will not make you full. i know the summit will be the first step to much bigger changes, so even if the results aren't significant i'll be thankful. while every detail is being dealt with on the island where they'll meet, no—one is really sure whether they'll be in this secluded spot for two minutes, two hours, or even two days. the hopes of nearly 70 million korean people lie here. it's their best chance of peace in decades, and it's fallen to an unpredictable us president and an untested north korean leader. perhaps the calm waters of this luxury resort will compel them to take tentative steps towards a deal. but rarely has there been a summit with higher steaks and greater uncertainty over its outcome. laura bicker, bbc news, singapore. let's remind ourselves what the us is likely to be wanting to get out of this summit.
11:05 pm
in short, for north korea to give up its nuclear weapons. but mr trump acknowledged that it "will take longer" than one meeting to realise that goal. president trump has indicated he might accept a phasing out of the programme, in exchange for a review of sanctions. both men place great importance on personal connections that could be enough to get the peace process moving. and the president says the north's human rights record will be brought up too. i think expectations should now be reasonably high. it is hard to know. the range of possible outcomes is very wide. one or the other could stomp off. we had that in advance with donald trump cancelling the whole thing, which was risky, i
11:06 pm
thought. but kim jong—un said we did not mean those insults. the fact both sides want to make it work and have three separate teams, the high—level visit to the white house and kimjong—un on high—level visit to the white house and kim jong—un on the high—level visit to the white house and kimjong—un on the north of high—level visit to the white house and kim jong—un on the north of the border, hammering out for six or seven days the text of a statement, i think seven days the text of a statement, ithinka seven days the text of a statement, i think a lot is riding on this. if it isa i think a lot is riding on this. if it is a damp squid, they'll all lose face. that's not likely. how likely is it they will even be talking about the same thing when it comes to defining denuclearisation? that is important. donald trump made the first concession, blinking first, moving from the cbi deal. we should have had an end to it. we had donald
11:07 pm
trump say this is the beginning of the process. the north koreans will have to do something more impressive than blowing up the test site which no one was impressed by as they can build another one anytime. a peace treaty is much easier. it is a piece of paper. building actual trusts, the start of a process, there are real possibilities. —— from donald trump can turn on a dime, just look at quebec and the g7. the day after tomorrow could go well, but i am not sure about the longer process. let's ta ke
11:08 pm
let's take a look at what the north korean side is hoping to achieve. well, north korea has spent decades building up its nuclear programme for one reason, to guarantee the state's survival. so, if it scales down its weapons programmes, it will want a reduction of the us military presence on the peninsula. kim jong—un also wants to be a global player, treated as an equal, alongside china, russia, japan, and south korea. so, president trump needs to ditch his "rocket man" label. and north korea needs money so they are desperate for all international sanctions to be lifted which will allow them to actively engage in international trade. well, as president trump made his way to singapore from the g7 summit in canada, he rejected the joint statement all the heads of government had just agreed. that sparked criticism from his european allies, with president macron of france tweeting that international cooperation could not depend on fits of anger. but mr trump's advisers defended the president, saying america had been "stabbed in the back," following comments by the canadian prime minister on trade tariffs. here's our north america correspondent, chris buckler. we had a great time in canada, it's a great country. i'm now going to singapore and i'll see you there. thank you.
11:09 pm
president trump tried to sound positive as he left quebec for a second summit, having signed up to a finaljoint communique. a face—saving agreement after what was in reality a bad—tempered meeting. inside, there had been no hiding the divides between america and the other g7 nations over its imposition of steep tariffs. as canadians, we're polite, we're reasonable, but we also will not be pushed around. donald trump responded to those remarks from onboard air force one, with tweets that withdrew america from the agreement, and attacked justin trudeau, who he said had acted so meek and mild during the g7 meetings. in fact, he said, he was dishonest and weak. he really kind of stabbed us in the back. and in a series of interviews white house advisers made clear in no uncertain terms that daggers have been drawn. there is a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with president donaldj trump, and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door,
11:10 pm
and that's what bad faith justin trudeau did with that stunt press conference. america has argued that tariffs on imported steel and aluminium are needed to protect its national security, but that seems to be at the expense of age—old relationships. the national security pretext is absurd and frankly insulting to canadians. the closest and strongest ally the us has had. america's old allies have been united in sending a message to the white house. after the difficult diplomacy in quebec, there is an open frustration with president trump, particularly after his late withdrawal from that supposedly agreed g7 statement. even his old friend the french president emmanuel macron has been fiercely critical. in a statement he said that international cooperation can not be dictated by fits of anger
11:11 pm
and throw away remarks. the images that emerged from this g7 told their own story. president trump out of step with the other leaders, and in his quest to put america first, it increasingly looks like america sits alone. chris buckler, bbc news, washington. conservative mps have been urged to support the prime minister, ahead of a series of crucial parliamentary votes on brexit. the former home secretary amber rudd, who backed remain, and iain duncan smith who backed leave, have called for "discipline," in party ranks, when the commons votes on the eu withdrawal bill this week. our political correspondent, iain watson, reports. they used to call this a busman's holiday. theresa may spent a weekend at a rancorous summit of world leaders, and this week, she's facing further arguments and another rebellion over brexit. the eu withdrawal bill is a key piece of legislation that takes the uk out of the european union.
11:12 pm
is she worried? well, here's a clue. the leading leave campaigner, iain duncan smith, has had tojoin up with a former remainer, amber rudd, to issue a warning to conservative mps. in the sunday telegraph, they said this. getting this legislation through will be a key turning point, i think, in the brexit process, because we'll have the laws in place to make sure we can have that smooth transition. so, what are the issues for the government? theresa may's keen to kill off some of the changes the house of lords has made to the withdrawal bill. the lords wants the government to negotiate a customs union with the eu, but this clashes with the conservative manifesto. and if parliament rejects theresa may's deal with brussels, in a so—called meaningful vote, the lords want to put mps, not ministers, in charge and to rule out the option of no deal. labour's shadow brexit secretary backs the lords in these issues and has this message
11:13 pm
for conservative rebels. if tory mps who do care about those amendments vote with us, there is a real chance for parliament to change the course of the brexit negotiation and to bring some order where there's real chaos. so just how much trouble is theresa may in? that will depend on how many of our own mps are willing to defy her. when the government suffered a defeat on brexit late last year, ii conservatives were willing to vote against the prime minister's wishes. now it's my understanding that not all of them are prepared to do so again, at least not yet. but even if they do decide to stay loyal this week, there'll be further opportunities to vote against the government at a later stage and a leading rebel is telling his colleagues, look, there really is no time like the present. kicking the can down the road for another month is hopeless. when we get to the customs and trade bill, exactly the same thing will happen again, and when we get to a final negotiated deal with the european union, then we'll be in a crisis.
11:14 pm
given the challenges she faces at westminster, that rancorous g7 summit might soon seem like a relaxing mini break for the prime minister. iain watson, bbc news. the headlines on bbc news: president trump is in singapore for a his direct summit on removing nuclear weapons from north korea with kim jong—un. nuclear weapons from north korea with kim jong-un. kim jong-un was already met by on the ball‘s prime minister. it was all smiles at the g7 summit two days ago but donald trump has launched a stinging attack onjustin trudeau. we start with a tennis were rafael nadal extended his record after a
11:15 pm
straight sets win against dominic thiem, continuing an unprecedented era for the spaniard which started backin back in 2005. patrick geary was watching the action. the french ceremony on men's finals day, this is spanish territory. rafael nadal‘s redcarpet, where he can lap up the aberration. his game is perfectly modelled for roller gallus's clay. —— roland garros. dominic thiem match until the end, then this. in austria, he is known as thieminator. rafael nadal of the second. was there a weakness? ‘s cramp could stop him. in fact, it prompted rough element
11:16 pm
to get it done quicker. in this place, against any opponent, including his own body, rafael nadal conquers all. patrick geary, bbc news. coming back and having eaten us to win in monte carlo, barcelona, brougham, and now here, it is very much good to me. it is a special moment and received that minute or two minutes of the crowd supporting, or that feeling in that moment. very difficult to describe it. it was emotionalfor me. ferrari's sebastian vettel has regained the lead in the formula i world championship after dominating the canadian grand prix. he now leads lewis hamilton by a point in the drivers' standings. perhaps the most drama occurred right at the beginning of the race, as home favourite lance stroll came together with toro rosso's brendon hartley, who subsequently went to hospital for a check—up. vettel though was never troubled and led from start to finish, to record his 50th win in formula i, becoming only the fourth person to do so.
11:17 pm
hamilton's fifth—place finish means vettel leapfrogs him in the world championship. in cricket, scotland secured a shock one day victory over world number one side england. scotland amassed their highest ever one day total of 371, thanks to an unbeaten century from calum mcleod. despite a third one day hundred in a row from jonny bairstow, england couldn't catch up as scotland recorded a six—run victory — their first ever win against england and the biggest in their cricketing history. i think that is the great thing in scotch cricket history. to have the number one team in our own backyard and the energy from the crowd today and the energy from the crowd today and to set a total like that and manchester down, what a game of cricket. certainly one of the bastions of cricket i have been involved in in anything. it was a british one—two at the leeds round of the world triathlon series with vicky holland leading home
11:18 pm
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 to claim a maiden world series podium. geraint thomas has taken arguably the biggest win of his career to win the criterium du dauphine. the final stage of the race — which is used as a warm up to the tour de france was won by britain's adam yates. behind, thomas's 5th placed was enough to take overall victory by a minute. it's the sixth time in eight years that a rider from team sky has won the race. that's all the sport for now. now, the historic summit that is to be held in singapore between donald trump and kimjong—un. we be held in singapore between donald trump and kim jong—un. we still don't know how long this summer will last, but we do have some idea of the three venues, which will be the focus of global media attention. the
11:19 pm
white house confirmed last night that the two leaders will hold their talks at the 5—star capella hotel on sentosa island. the fact that it is separated by water makes it a secure venue. however, the two men are staying elsewhere. donald trump is at the shangri—la hotel, will where he has stayed before. the area surrounding the hotel have been declared a special event area for the summer period. mr kim is staying at the st regis, in nine minute walk orfive—minute at the st regis, in nine minute walk or five—minute drive from where donald trump is staying. but there will be a great deal of walking going on. we go to break away. she joins us from near where donald trump estate. —— mariko oi. not under the same roof, mariko, and tell largely necessary?” under the same roof, mariko, and tell largely necessary? i am sorry. as you can see behind me, there is a
11:20 pm
heavy police security behind me, and they can't hear very clearly. as you said, iam they can't hear very clearly. as you said, i am outside the shangri—la hotel here in the orchard district of singapore. donald trump arrived last night and went inside the presidential suite, where former us presidents, including george w bush and barack obama stayed. this is also where the summit between the chinese president xijinping and also where the summit between the chinese president xi jinping and the then chinese leader took place sometime ago. as you mentioned, kim jong—un is not too far from sometime ago. as you mentioned, kim jong—un is not too farfrom here. less tha n jong—un is not too farfrom here. less than a kilometre away. so we did make those walks if you times, the bbc teams, as well, and that is where he arrived late afternoon yesterday, on sunday, here in singapore. donald trump and kim jong—un's meeting is of course on tuesday. so there is a question about what those two leaders will be
11:21 pm
doing today. we never donald trump will be meeting with a prime minister singapore, who met with kim jong—un yesterday, and that meeting was streamed live on facebook. so they could potentially happen later today between donald trump and prime minister li. we do not have all the details of what the men will do today, possibly just details of what the men will do today, possiblyjust hiring out details before the meeting at the capella hotel on sentosa island, on tuesday. tens of thousands of people have been mighty across the uk to mark 100 years is the first british women won the right to vote. many taking part in the colours of the suffragette movement, green, white, and violet. special events were held in edinburgh cardiff and london. they followed in the footsteps of
11:22 pm
the suffragettes of a century ago. in belfast, they started a titanic quarter. in cardiff, they passed through the city centre. and in edinburgh, they might tour ‘s hybrid park. it has been a great opportunity to find out about our history and names of the women. there are so many more women. they have great stories. with all these women, it is amazing, just to represent the names in the banner. we wanted to remember actually we women, the first woman in the world to get the vote. some came over and help the british suffragettes. 100 female artists were commissioned to work on projects, to sow but is it
11:23 pm
me placards, just as the women of the suffrage did. women like emily wilding davison, who famously threw herself under the king's course, spotted it here in this archive footage for the first time recently. a commemoration, a celebration towards all those involved in the fight to secure some women the right to vote. a lot of these women, it is about paying to suffrage movement that walker's bray park 100 years ago. but for a lot of women, it is about the future and how they can achieve equality for all. —— that walked this past 100 years ago. we remind ourselves of some of the key milestones. we start in the first world war, when all politics was suspended. in 100 years ago the representation of the people act was passed, allowing some women over 30 to vote. a year later, nancy aster
11:24 pm
was the first woman to take a seat in parliament. she won a by—election in plymouth at an, replacing husband is empty. in 1928, the evil franchise act allowed women of the age of 21 to vote, and increase the number of women eligible to vote 15 million, and gave women the same voting rights as men. they are now concern is a historian and author who was at the march today. she said the atmosphere was wonderful.m who was at the march today. she said the atmosphere was wonderful. it was a bit late time travelling back to a suffragette projection. it was full of colour and energy and joy and determination. so it really felt as though one was back with the suffragettes more than 100 years ago. it was fantastic. how diverse was the suffragette movement, and how diverse was the march today? today was all about diversity, as it
11:25 pm
was for the suffragettes. they had men to women from all classes, from all parts of the country, and from all parts of the country, and from all different life experiences and stories brought together for their campaign. —— they had women from all classes. they were a diverse group of campaigners. that would you think the campaign as of 1918 would make of the state of britain regarding equality for women today? they would be impressed with what we had achieved. women have achieved a great deal. but there are are not enough women in high positions with real authority to make a difference. they will be filled up progress, but they would wonder why we still are backing the evil pay issue. because one of our platforms was equal pay. and they would have said to us, i am sure, in1970, the and they would have said to us, i am sure, in 1970, the equal pay, it was rolled out all supposed to be rolled out by 1975, you still don't have it. so what were they tell us to do
11:26 pm
about it? i think they would tell us to go back and use their own slogan. and they would say deeds not words, you should be making this happen. women now need to have more expressive voice, then together moors forcefully, and publicly, like today, which is such a celebration of the past and present in the future, and actual demand equal pay, and keep persisting with the demand, because that is where the suffragettes succeeded, and there persistence. historian and author diane atkinson speaking to us earlier. some breaking news now regarding a fire at a hospital in north london. london fire brigade as saying on the fire brigade that a fire engines and 58 firefighters and officers are being called to a hospital fire officers are being called to a hospitalfire in enfield. it is on the ridgeway. there are a number of hospitals that area, so we need to have a confirmed. is larger so that
