10:01 pm
at the world cup — mexico beat the reigning champions germany. good evening. the prime minister has announced a funding boost for the health service to mark its 70th birthday, with an extra £20 billion a year promised for the nhs in england by 2023. that means an increase of — on average — 3.4% a year. there'll be more money for health in wales, scotland and northern ireland too. for health in wales, today, theresa may hinted that tax rises will be necessary to pay for the move — and said it will be partly funded by not having to send money to the eu after brexit. labour's dismissed that as a "hypothetical" windfall. here's our health editor, hugh pym. as a "hypothetical" windfall. it was a winter of severe stress across the nhs. ministers were under
10:02 pm
pressure to find more money. all of that led to today's announcement. the big question was, how much cash will the service need in future decades with a growing and ageing population? the prime minister has tried to answer with a five—year funding plan. tried to answer with partly paid for, she says, by money saved after brexit. that will be through the brexit dividend, the fact that we're no longer sending vast amounts of money every year to the eu once we leave the eu. every year to 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 which matter to people today — a&e, waiting times — but i also want to see improved survival rates from cancer. but i also want to see improved the boss of one leading hospital, reflecting the views of most service leaders, welcomed the new funding announcement. welcomed the new people may say well, we need more money, or we are much behind in terms of budget.
10:03 pm
we need more money, or we are much i think it's a substantial increase in the budget for the nhs and it's certainly going to help us and our patients. as well as the new funding for england, an extra £4 billion a year by 2023 will be provided to scotland, wales and northern ireland. to scotland, wales 0verall some analysts believe the new money won't to live for any improvements to services. the new money won't to live for any it isn't enough on its own to either tackle the backlog of waiting lists, improve cancer or mental health. tackle the backlog of waiting lists, so if we want any improvements in those areas, something else is going to have to give. in those areas, something else today's funding allocation is for front line nhs services in england, like hospital care. it doesn't include either public health, with prevention initiatives, or training of nurses and doctors. health, with prevention initiatives, those budgets won't be announced until later this year. and it doesn't cover social care. until later this year. the government says we will have to wait for further announcements on that. to wait for further
10:04 pm
the care minister recently told the bbc that more money for the nhs without more money for social care is like running the bath with the plug out. is like running the bath only when all the elements are in place will it be possible to get a clearer picture of the future path for the health service. of the future path hugh pym, bbc news. of the future path it's likely that the extra money for the health service will come from taxation, increased borrowing and — according to the prime minister — from money saved from eu membership costs. from money saved from 0ur political correspondent alex forsyth is here with the analysis. theresa may said leaving the eu means no longer paying into its budget, therefore freeing up money for the health service. therefore freeing up money that made the brexit—backers in her party pretty happy. borisjohnson tweeted to say it's "fa ntastic news". "taking back control". it's "fa ntastic news". but not all tories feel the same. it's "fa ntastic news". 0ne prominent backbencher — dr sarah wollaston — said the idea of a brexit dividend was "tosh", and claimed it was "treating the public
10:05 pm
like fools" — because we'll still be paying into the eu budget for some time — and there is an exit bill to settle. time — and there is leading economists are certainly sceptical. the idea that there is a brexit dividend is pure fiction. as a pure matter of arithmetic, there will be no extra money infouryears' time, because of the financial arrangement we have come to with the european union in any case and even more importantly, the government has already accepted that the public finances will be weakened to the tune of at least £15 billion a year, not strengthened as a result of brexit. so, this contentious pledge from the referendum campaign is still causing controversy now. from the referendum campaign the prime minister suggested today that this promise will be exceeded, but has not yet spelt out how — tax rises are expected, not traditional tory policy, and so far there is no detail. we don't know where
10:06 pm
it is coming from. we are told maybe a bit of borrowing, maybe a tax increase and a brexit dividend, that not many economists believe in. if this was me, they would be saying it is a magic money tree, this is a magic money forest that they are bringing forward. there is no certainty whatsoever. that they are bringing forward. pro—brexit tories, though, are undeterred. we pay on average about £10 billion a year to the eu and that is an amount of money that goes from the uk to the eu and once we leave the eu, we will not be paying that amount of money after our departure, so that is a really good benefit that we should all be welcoming. so that is a really good benefit 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'll fund this boost for nhs england. has to spell out how she'll fund 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 will please brexiteer tories — but alienate others. she's trying to keep the balance in her party — but now balance the books too.
10:07 pm
the balance in her party — more than 600 migrants at the centre of a european row are spending their first night on dry land in more than a week. three boats docked in the spanish port of valencia today after the group, which was picked up off the coast of libya, was turned away by both italy and malta. off the coast of libya, was turned 0ur europe correspondent damian grammaticas reports from valencia from the aquarius, the first sight this morning of spain. it's week—long odyssey a thousand miles across the mediterranean at an end. a thousand miles across finally in valencia was a port prepared to welcome the ship. it was a moment ofjoy for those on board. they had been rescued from the seas off libya, but because of them italy and malta had turned the aquarius away. 0nly spain stepped in, saying countries should provide those in distress a safe haven. saying countries should provide by taking in this boat, spain's new socialist government wants to show that a new type of migration policy
10:08 pm
for europe is possible. of migration policy one where you can both control your borders and respect human rights. control your borders italy did provide two coast guard vessels to help the aquarius transport the 630 people to spain. vessels to help the aquarius but it was valencia's mayor who offered the ship sanctuary and so defused a crisis for europe. who offered the ship sanctuary he describes the rejection by italy and malta of those rescued at sea as inhumane. by italy and malta of those translation: they don't respect human rights. they are decisions that don't respect international agreements about which ports to use after a rescue and these are decisions which, if we allow them to happen, would turn the mediterranean sea into a mass grave. the people who spain took in today seeking refuge or opportunity in europe are from more than two dozen countries. among their number, 80 women and 100 children. some making the riskyjourney with families, many unaccompanied.
10:09 pm
spain will now give them all free medical care and a 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. to prevent all private rescue boats if italy is going to refuse you entry, are you going to continue to pick people up out of the sea? you entry, are you going to continue as long as people are dying and we saw only a few days ago another 12 deaths in that part of the mediterranean. also many people died here south of spain, so as long as that continues, we do not have a choice. this group thanked their rescuers before stepping onto european soil. it's the dream for so many. before stepping onto european soil. how to deal with it is dividing europe more than ever. this europe more than ever. evening that operation to unload this evening that operation to unload those boats has completed. we now know more than 100 people had to go to hospitalfor now know more than 100 people had to go to hospital for treatment and around 50 were unaccompanied children. the story of the aquarius
10:10 pm
eliminates the deep divisions in europe about how to deal with this. but the ng or‘s see it a distraction, they say european countries are failing and bought like the aquarius need to be back out there are saving lives because in the last few days for example another 1000 have tried to cross to spain from north africa, from morocco, and it is thought a0 odd people drowned over the weekend in that effort. the ng or‘s see their effo rts that effort. the ng or‘s see their efforts should be out there on the sea where european governments are sea where european governments are failing. the conservative mp who blocked a private member's bill to make upskirting a criminal offence has said he's been misrepresented and he does support changing the law. said he's been misrepresented and he sir christopher chope insists he was simply objecting to the practice of nodding through legislation without debate on a friday afternoon. through legislation without debate greece and macedonia have signed a historic agreement aimed at ending decades of dispute about macedonia's name. the prime ministers watched

10:12 pm
and cause further damage. the interior does look pretty gutted. glasgow north east labour mp paul sweeney had access to film the damage. paul sweeney had access he wants the mackintosh building to be restored. these outer walls, he said, appear stable. but here the interior has been totally lost. the fire took hold quickly. has been totally lost. the building was well alight when firefighters arrived on the scene. alight when firefighters due to the intensity of the blaze, some fear it may need to be demolished. of the blaze, some fear it may the mac being such a globally recognised building, this would probably have a bit more deliberation before they come to that decision. deliberation before but the consensus is beginning to grow over the last 2a hours that that might very well be the case. to grow over the last 2a hours that so for now the future of the building, considered to be charles rennie mackintosh's masterpiece, remains very uncertain. alexandra mackenzie, bbc news, glasgow. it's thought that half of the online

population of the uk — or around 30 million people — play games, whether on phones, tablets, computers or consoles. play games, whether on phones, but now problems relating to video games are being seen as a medical condition. games are being seen from tomorrow, the world health 0rganization will recognise ‘gaming disorder‘ and issue guidelines on how to diagnose people who are addicted. on how to diagnose 0ur media editor amol rajan reports. on how to diagnose you could be fighting dragons or you could be taking out a terrorist force, anything you want to do, save a princess or become a blue hedgehog running at the speed of sound. a blue hedgehog running it's crazy. a blue hedgehog running starwars and gaming, and you put them into the one thing and it's absolutely amazing how you can be any character. you can be a stormtrooper, you can be a rebel, and you can be absolutely anything and do whatever you want, and you can change your character. you want, and you can from angry birds and candy crush to the latest craze, fortnite, industry figures suggest over 37 million britons have played an electronic game
10:14 pm
in the past six months. whether on pcs, consoles or mobiles, digital technology has made games widely accessible and generally cheap. and for some, it's notjust a form of entertainment, but a lucrative career. a form of entertainment, by building a vast following on social media platforms, some gamers can make millions of pounds annually. 0n sites such as twitch, hundreds of gamers live stream their experience, often while talking live to their followers. often while talking live i've got some ideas in my head, i've got some ideas. it's a digital universe largely beyond the view of many parents. there are professional players out there now. under the pseudonym tommyt999, ross thompson is building a brand and following. ross thompson is building how do people make money these days out of gaming? the basics are just kind of like the ad revenue that you receive from your videos or your content, and then you've got the likes of sponsorships, donations from kind of like the community, then there's also opportunities to have deals with brands.
10:15 pm
but for some, gaming can become a distraction and an addiction. australian neil robertson became snooker world champion in 2010, but away from the green cloth he immersed himself in gaming. the thing is you don't realise it's12 or 1a hours, you know, itjust goes, like boom — the blink of an eye. i was heavily addicted, i've no doubt about that. i denied it for many years, saying i really need it when i travel away, it's so important, whereas i wasn't sort of really confronting the real issue itself. now the world health organisation has created a new classification. gaming disorderfor digital or video gaming now officially has three characteristics. gaming now officially has impaired control when gaming, prioritising gaming over other interests and daily activities, and an escalation in gaming despite the negative consequences. and an escalation in gaming to be diagnosed, such behaviour needs to be of sufficient severity for at least a year. needs to be of sufficient severity the royal college of psychiatrists says while there is no
10:16 pm
epidemic of gaming disorder, for a small number gaming can be a problem when online friendships become stronger and more real to them than real life ones. become stronger and more real that's a crucial moment when the gamer begins to in a way overvalue the online activity, and i would say that soon afterfamilies begin to notice an absence and an emotional disconnect with the rest of the activities that once were so enjoyable. of the activities that the gaming industry takes a different view. jo twist, the ceo of the games trade body, said we are concerned to see gaming disorder still contained in the latest version of the classification, despite significant opposition from the medical and scientific community. new technology means millions of gamers are today immersing themselves in virtual worlds. of gamers are today immersing most do so without causing harm to themselves or others, but for a growing number gaming is an addiction like any other. amol rajan, bbc news.

10:22 pm
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 hot for some of us. in the north, however, we will retain the north, however, we will retain the cool weather and also occasional rain. let us have a look at the satellite picture, because there is still a lot of cloud across the uk, it has been streaming in off the atlantic, during the course of the day. it looks as though the skies are going to clear temporarily during the course of the night, but across some western areas of the uk. here it is, hello. this is bbc news. after 25 years, david dimbleby has decided to leave question time, the bbc‘s flagship political debate programme at the end of the year. he's chaired question time since 199a, and it's the role for which he's best known. announcing his decision, mr dimbleby said: "i am not giving up broadcasting. instead, after years in the studio, i now plan to return to my first love: reporting". joining me now is jim waterson, media editor at the guardian. thank you forjoining us. are you a
10:23 pm
fan of question time? there has been some fantastic pieces of gold on the programme, what has been your most memorable piece of work with david dimbleby. i think it was when nick griffin went on and it was one of those moments that changed in terms of the fortunes of his party when the bnp lost all their say that the next set of elections. that is the one moment where you saw how much this programme aims to people and how much people talk about it. the sheer amount of attention it gets, a lot of people loathe it, except the conversation for the following day. people go into the office and talk about what they say, argue about what was on and make their points off the back of it. do you think it is that element, that david's tamina programme will be remembered? that is the absolute sort of moment that
10:24 pm
people remember but there are lots of other things, the time he shut down someone in the audience when they would not stop asking questions, the guest people could not believe, joey barton as well, they are always willing to slightly shocked people by putting slightly obscure figures on who you would not necessarily that would be at home on a current affairs show. he has done thisjob 25 years, a current affairs show. he has done this job 25 years, think what it was like in 199a, there was no social media, very few outlets for the public to get on national tv and put across their political views. now, you have a chance to rethink the programme and what you do with it. do you change the format? do you think more about what you do when eve ryo ne think more about what you do when everyone can have a twitter or facebook account and shout all their views of power politics without having a camera in front of them. what do you do with the format now he is going to go? one of my best moments was eric pickles referring to like a moments was eric pickles referring to likeajob, moments was eric pickles referring to like a job, in other words. any
10:25 pm
national event, current affairs, political events, you associate david dimbleby with that. what do you think has been his contribution? we all associate him with hosting election coverage as well as question time. i get the feeling he is not the sort to easily give up on a good gig once he has got it. the bbc announced in 201a that hugh edwards would replace him as host of the election night coverage and yet, strangely, both the last eu referendum and the 2017th snap general election were hosted by david dimbleby. we will see whether hugh edwards gets his hands up prize but david said he would stay as a journalist, this is not the end for him, he turns 80 at the end of the year, but he will
10:26 pm
keep making programmes. he made a panorama earlier this week but went out in russia and he does not seem willing to sit back at home and put his feet up yet. as well as political affairs, question time, his feet up yet. as well as politicalaffairs, question time, he has put together a lot of documentaries as well. what do you make about his plans to step into the reporting role, back into reporting? he comes from such a long line of bbc journalists, reporting? he comes from such a long line of bbcjournalists, his father was the person who commentated on the queens installation as a monarch backin the queens installation as a monarch back in 1953. and the fact that he was the first war correspondent, it is really in his blood that this has been handed down to david and maybe a chance to go off and find some stories and talk to people without having to have a boom mike swinging over them to get their little point and to be able to talk with them property, might be a nice break. thank you very much. tomas has the weather. for most of us, it was quite
10:27 pm
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 hot for some of us. in the north, however, we will retain the cool weather and also occasional rain. let us have a look at the satellite picture, because there is still a lot of cloud across the uk, it has been streaming in off the atlantic, during the course of the day. it looks as though the skies are going to clear temporarily during the course of the night, but across some western areas of the uk. here it is, early hours of monday morning, we start to see the skies clearing off scotland, northern england, wales, down to the south west. probably remaining cloudy all through the night, across the south—east of england and also east anglia. quite mild, 15 in the south, close to ten in the north. tomorrow starts off quite sunny again and then later in the day, we will see cloud increasing from the west once more. in fact the cloud could be big enough to give a little bit of drizzle here and there. but, temperatures will be
10:28 pm
significantly higher across england and wales, mid 20s in the south—east, into the 20s across yorkshire, but remaining fresh across northern britain. the reason why we are going to see a big contrast between the north and the south is because the air, it never reaches northern areas, it kind of takes a detour, moves across england and wales and then out into the continent. 0n the northern edge of this warm air, we have a weather front, so additionally it will turn wet, potentially on tuesday across parts of northern ireland and western scotland. to the south of this weather front here, this is where the warm air is across england and wales. temperatures at least to around 25 degrees on tuesday. so, midweek we see that weather front moving away and behind this weather front here, we still have fresh air, so that means that scotland and 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, sun in the forecast, too, then it looks as though it may cool offjust a fraction across northern parts of england as well. that heat slips a little bit
10:29 pm
further towards the south, into the midlands, east anglia and the south—east.
