6:30 pm
we've established a fire investigation team and the full facts and circumstances, they will work on that as we go through this week. but i really want to at this stage emphasise this has been a very difficult fire, the firefighters have been as always outstanding, supported by their colleagues within control but also i think i need to shout out to our partners police scotland, scottish ambulance service, the salvation army and in fact the people and the businesses of glasgow who have offered up their support to us. and it is really heartfelt from them and appreciated by our firefighters. obviously there are concerns for the structural safety of the building — is it likely to have anything demolished sooner rather than later, is there anything particularly unsafe at the moment? this is a heartbreaking incident. if we can take any solace from it, there has been no injuries. and what we want to absolutely avoid at this stage is for anybody to get injured. so we're being very cautious, we are working with our partners in glasgow city council building control, we've got structural engineers advising us as we continue with the firefighting phase of this operation.
6:31 pm
chief officer, thank you very much for talking to us. the operations are still ongoing here, the investigation is ongoing now. and it will be several weeks probably before the building is safe enough for forensic investigators to be able to get in and around that building to find out exactly what happened here on friday night. greece and macedonia have signed a deal that, if ratified, will resolve a decades—old dispute concerning macedonia's name. the disagreement stems from greece already having a northern province called macedonia. according to the deal, the balkan state will be renamed the republic of north macedonia. our balkans correspodnent guy de launey reports. like a high—end wedding picture. and picturesque lake, and picturesque a romantic crossing by the macedonians and the greek hosts anticipating their guests' arrival.
6:32 pm
and of course one side will be changing its name. but there were no last—minute nerves for the two prime ministers, only joy and probably relief that a dispute stretching back three decades is finally nearing its conclusion. the eu's commissioner for enlargement was among the guests. the name change will finally allow skopje to start membership negotiations now that athens has now pledged to end its objections. translation: this is a historic this is first up. this is to heal the wounds of the past and to pave the way for peace, fellowship, collaboration and mutual growth. not only for our countries but for the balkans, the whole of europe. translation: you cannot achieve anything without courage. courage is the greatest valour, followed by honour. signing the final agreement for the name is of strategic importance for the two countries
6:33 pm
and can move mountains. as the two prime ministers celebrated, the happiest man in the room may have been the un mediator who has spent a quarter of a century working on the name dispute. i think working out these problems over a long period of time has resulted in an agreement that really is fair, honourable and workable. and so, the happy couple sailed off, not into the sunset but to lunch. but there is no time for a honeymoon, they still face a referendum in macedonia and a parliamentary vote in greece. choppy waters possibly ahead. scientists are scouring the depths of scotland's loch ness. using some new technology to discover what lurks below. they're using environmental dna sampling. a tool to find tiny fragments of scales, skin and even fur left
6:34 pm
behind by animals. to gain a better understanding of native species in the lake. but it has some wondering if they'll also be able to prove once and for all whether "nessi" the loch ness monster — does, or ever did, exist. rylee carlson explains. for hundreds of years, tales of loch ness have captivated imaginations and notjust because of its beauty. instead, people flock here hoping to find proof of a monster lurking beneath the water. now scientists are hoping modern environmental dna technology can help unravel the mystery. we will be taking some water samples using this device here. neil gemmell is with the university of otago in new zealand. while analysing those water samples, he will be hunting for unknown dna. from half a litre of water, we can get a very good catalogue of life in the loch. and we thought this would be a great place to showcase that technology because of course there may be something unknown to science
6:35 pm
lurking in those waters. but professor gemmell is not the first to try. in this 1986 search, scientists tried using ultrasound but came up empty handed. and just two years ago, a robotic submarine search turned up an old film prop of the beast but nothing else. even those dedicated to nessi know the odds are slim. i'm sure that some species will be found which probably have not been described. they might be bacteria, in fact more likely than anything else to be bacteria. if you find something and i do emphasise the "if", then you would actually get a good sense of what sort of animal you are looking at. whether it is fish, flesh or fowl. even though previous searches have struck out, tourists haven't stopped coming in.
6:36 pm
if anything, it adds to the mystery. they're finding new plants and new animals in different places of the world all the time. so they still could find something here that we don't know about. so will this e—dna test finally reveal the answer to a centuries—old question? or will the elusive creature elude science yet again? rylee carlson, bbc news. in a few minutes' time viewers on bbc one willjoin us for a summary of the day's news. but first let's take a look at the weather with philip avery. most of us it was quite a fresh cloudy weekend, but things are set to warm up, particularly across the south of the country. in the coming days, perhaps even turning a little too hard for some of us in the north however, we will retain the cool weather and also occasional rain. let's have a look at the satellite
6:37 pm
picture because there's still a lot of clout across the uk, it's been streaming in off the atlantic, during the course of the day. looks as though the skies are going to clear temporarily during the course of the night across some western areas of the uk. so here it is, early hours of monday morning, we start to see this guys clearing, scotland, northern england, wales and to the southwest. remaining cloudy all through the night across the southeast of england and also east anglia, quite mild in the south, closer to ten in the north and tomorrow starts off sunny again, then later in the day, you will see clouds increasing from the west once more in fact the crowd could be thick enough to give a little bit of drizzle here and there. but the temperatures will be significantly higher across england and wales. mid-205 higher across england and wales. mid—20s in the southeast, into the 20s across yorkshire, but remaining fresh across northern britain. the reason why we fresh across northern britain. the reason why we are fresh across northern britain. the reason why we are point is the be contracted between the north and the southis contracted between the north and the south is because the air would never reach, it just kind south is because the air would never reach, itjust kind of takes a detour and moves across england and wales and then out into the
6:38 pm
continents. and on the northern edge of this warm here we have a weather front so additionally, it will also turn what potentially on tuesday across parts of northern ireland and western scotland south to the south of this weather frontier. this is where the warm air is across england and wales. temperatures at least around 25 celsius on tuesday. so, maybe we see that weather fronts moving away and behind this weather frontier we still have fresh air, so that means that scotland and northern ireland remain in the fresh airon northern ireland remain in the fresh air on wednesday, but there will be some sunshine around in the western isles. certainly for glasgow and belfast, some in the forecast as well. and it looks as though it may cool off just a fraction across northern parts of england as well. so that heat slips under the further towards the south and into the midlands east anglia and the southeast. perhaps the high teens in the north of england on wednesday but possibly 27 in london and norwich. towards the end of the week, high—pressure establishes itself across the uk so we are talking about mostly dry weather. questions for how the government
6:39 pm
will pay for a funding boost for the nhs. the prime minister says the health service in england will get an extra £20 billion a year by 2023. we asa we as a country will be contributing a bit more. hundreds of migrants picked up off the coast of libya, arrived in the spanish port of valencia. and the first big upset at the world cup, mexico beat the reigning champions germany. good evening. theresa may has
6:40 pm
announced a funding boost for the nhs in england saying it will receive an extra £20 billion a year by 2023. it would be partly paid for by 2023. it would be partly paid for by what would have been future contributions to the eu budget. but she is being urged to clarify exactly where the money will come from given uncertainty over whether there will be any extra funds available to the government at that time. the prime minister has also left open the suggestion of more taxation saying the country would contribute more to the nhs. here is oui’ contribute more to the nhs. here is our health editor. agb a gb today seeing a patient in the urgent treatment centre, the question is how much will money will the service need in future decades for the growing and ageing population. the prime minister struck to answer that with a five—year funding plan, partly struck to answer that with a five—yearfunding plan, partly paid for she says by money saved after
6:41 pm
brexit. that will be through the brexit. that will be through the brexit dividend, the fact that we are no longer sending vast amounts of money every year up to the eu once we leave the eu, and we as a country will be contributing a bit more. and in terms of the improvements we want to see, we want to see improvements in performance issues that matter to people today, andy, but they also want to see improved survival rates from cancer. the boss of one leading hospital reflecting the views of most service leaders, welcome to the new funding announcement. people may say well, we need more money or we announcement. people may say well, we need more money or we are announcement. people may say well, we need more money or we are behind in terms of budget, i think it is a substantial increase in the budget for the nhs and it's certainly going to help us and our patients. between 2014 and 2016 under this government, health spending growth by two a year above inflation. ministers say nhs england will receive an average of 3.4%a year england will receive an average of 3.4% a yearforfive
6:42 pm
england will receive an average of 3.4% a year for five years. that will means £20 billion marred by 2023, on top of the current budget of 150 billion. but health think ta nks of 150 billion. but health think tanks welch cause —— said the plan fell short. it is not enough on its own see fell short. it is not enough on its own see either tackle the backlog of waiting lists, improve mental health. so if we want and improvements in those areas, something else is going to have to give. the funding allocation is for front line nhs services in england like hospital care. it doesn't cover either public health prevention initiatives or training of nurses and doctors. those budgets will be announced until the autumn. and it doesn't cover social care. the government says it would have to wait for further announcements on that. extra funding for scotland, wales, northern ireland will be made available as a result of the new plan although it won't be until later this year that the detailed picture for all health spending will become clear. it's likely that the
6:43 pm
extra money for the health service will come from taxation increased borrowing, and according to the prime minister, for money saved from eu membership costs. our political correspondent is here with the amount —— analysis. correspondent is here with the amount -- analysis. theresa may said giving the eu means no longer paying into his budget, therefore freeing up into his budget, therefore freeing up money for the health service. that made the brexit backers in her party pretty happy. borisjohnson tweeted to say it's fantastic news taking back control but not all tories feel the same. one prominent backbencher, doctor sayre wollaston said the idea of a brexit dividend was tosh, and she claimed it was treating the public like fools because we'll still be paying into the eu budget for some time, and there is an exit bill to settle. leading economists are certainly sceptical. the idea that there is a brexit dividend is your fiction. it a matter of arithmetic, there will
6:44 pm
be no extra money in the for your time because of the financial arrangement we've come to with the european union in any case. and even more importantly, the government has already accepted that the public finances will be weekends to the tune of at least £50 million a year, not strengthened as a result of brexit. this contentious press from the referendum campaign is still causing controversy now. the referendum campaign is still causing controversy now. the prime minister suggested today, this promise will be exceeded, but has not yet spelled out how tax rises are expected, not traditional tory policy and so far there's no detail. we don't know where it's coming from, we told our media tax increase ona from, we told our media tax increase on a brexit dividend, not many economists believe in, if this was me they be saying this is a magic money tree. this is a magic money for a spare money tree. this is a magic money fora spare brain, there's money tree. this is a magic money for a spare brain, there's no certainty whatsoever. group brexit tories are undeterred. that is the
6:45 pm
money that goes from the uk to the eu. once we leave the eu, he will not be able to pay that amount of money after our departure. that's a really good benefits. that we should all be welcome —— welcoming. really good benefits. that we should all be welcome -- welcoming. in truth whether there will be a dividend in the long term, will depend on how brexit affects the economy. in the short—term, the prime minister has to spell out how she will fund this boost for nhs england, and the politics are almost as important as the economics. theresa may is talking about the benefits of brexit ahead of another difficult week in parliament. that would please brexit tories would alienate others. she's trying to keep the balance in her party and now keep the balance in her party and now has to balance the books also. thank you. more than 600 migrants rescued from the mediterranean and turned away by it to the hub arrived in spain. three boats including the aquarius which first picked the group up aquarius which first picked the group up off the coast of libya have now group up off the coast of libya have now talked on the port of valencia. our correspondent is there.

6:47 pm
socialist government wants to show that a new type of migration policy for europe is possible. one where you can both control your borders, and respect human rights. italy did provide it to coast guard ships to help a query is transported the 630 people for spain. 81 men and 100 children, some making the risky journey with families, but many on the company. spain will now give them all free medical care than the 45 day permit to stay while they lodge asylum claims. italy says it will continue to prevent all private rescue boats from using its ports. is it to me is going to refuse your entry will you pick people up out of the sea? as long as people are dying and we saw only a few days ago on other 12 deaths in that part of the red bash mediterranean and many people died here at the south of spain. if that continues we don't have another choice. this group

6:49 pm
they can to save the building. but due to the intensity of the blaze, some fear it may need to be demolished. being such a globally recognised building, its best we have a bit more deliberation before they come to that decision but the consensus is beginning to grow over the last 24 hours that may be the case. for now, the future of the building considered to be his masterpiece remains very uncertain. time for the sport, let's join all a foster in moscow. it has been a weekend of shocks at the world cup, in the last hour, here in moscow at the luzhniki stadium, the reigning world champions germany were beaten 1—0 by mexico. here's our sports correspondent andy swiss. the champions and for many, the
6:50 pm
favourites, that germany's lofty expectations were about to come crashing down. in the first half, they were as flat as mexico were furious. after a 35 minutes swarming through the german defence, with stunning results. the goal prompting a mexican wave of euphoria, a famous upset beckons, moments later a warning shots, tony so close for the german fans though, not close enough. as mexico tired after the break, germany poured forward but without their usual ruthlessness. the champions were humble, not since 1982 had germany lost the world cup opener, they must pick up the pieces for mexico a day to celebrate after one of their greatest ramps. me and while the earlier match had been settled by a moment of individual brilliance, alexander pinpoint precision turning serbia a 1—0 win
6:51 pm

6:55 pm
moving away and behind this weather front, we have fresh air which means scotla nd front, we have fresh air which means scotland and northern ireland remained in fresh air on wednesday. there will be sunshine around the western isles. certainly for glasgow and belfast. it looks as though it may cool off just a and belfast. it looks as though it may cool offjust a fraction across northern parts of england as well. that he does is a little bit further towards the south into the midlands. east anglia and the southeast. perhaps the high teens in the north of england on wednesday and possibly 27 in london. towards the end of the week, high—pressure establishes itself across the uk so we are talking about mostly dry weather. this is bbc news. the headlines at 7pm. theresa may promises a £20 billion a year real—terms increase to the nhs in england by 2023. labour says it's not enough. we're making the nhs our priority, we're putting a significant amount of extra money into it. we need to make sure that
6:56 pm
money is spent wisely. we're saying you can go further and if the government made the taxation changes we are prepared to make, you could be giving even more to the nhs. so labour would be spending more on the nhs than the tories. hundreds of migrants who were rescued off the coast of libya eight days ago, arrive in spain. experts warn the glasgow school of art may have to be demolished after being gutted by fire. and joy for mexico, but dispair for the holders germany in the world cup. commentator:
