this is bbc news. the headlines: theresa may has faced criticism over where the money for the nhs has come from. that will be from the brexit dividend, the fact we are no longer sending vast amount of money to the eu once we leave and we as a country will be contributing a bit more.“ this was me, they will be saying this was me, they will be saying this is a magic money tree, this is a magic money forest. there is no certainty whatsoever. hundreds of migrants rescued off the coast of libya are right in spain. experts warn the glasgow school of art may have to be demolished after being gutted by fire. in sport, there is i°y gutted by fire. in sport, there is joy for mexico, but despair for the holders germany in the world cup. that goal was enough to consign the
11:01 pm
germans to their first defeat in an opening game in the world cup since 1982. and it is this wonder goal from philippe coutinho that wasn't enough to any side the win as brazil open their tournament with a one all draw a against switzerland. and in half an hour on bbc news, morris front pages, including we harry kane do it. as england prepare to kick offa campaign. 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. 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. it was a winter of severe stress across the nhs. ministers were under pressure to find more money. all of that led to
11:02 pm
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. 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. 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. the boss of one leading hospital, reflecting the views of most service leaders, welcomed the new funding announcement. people may say well, we need more money, or we are much behind in terms of budget.
11:03 pm
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. 0verall some analysts believe the new money won't to live for any improvements to services. it isn't enough on its own to either tackle the backlog of waiting lists, improve cancer or mental health. so if we want any improvements in those areas, something else is going to have to give. 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. those budgets won't be announced until later this year. and it doesn't cover social care. the government says we will have to wait for further
11:04 pm
announcements on that. 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. 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. hugh pym, bbc news. 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. 0ur political correspondent alex forsyth explains. that made the brexit backers in her party pretty happy. borisjohnson tweeted to say it is fantastic news, we are taking back control. but not all tories feel the same. 0ne prominent backbencher, doctor sarah wollaston, said the idea of a brexit of it and was posh and claimed it was treating the public like fool is because we would still be paying into the eu budget for some time and
11:05 pm
there is an exit bill to settle. leading economist a certainly sceptical. the idea that there is a brexit dividend is pure fiction. it isa pure brexit dividend is pure fiction. it is a pure matter of arithmetic, they will be no extra money in four years time because of the financial arrangement we are come to with the eu in any case. and even more importantly, the government has already accepted that the public finances will be weakened to the choon of at least £15 billion per year, not strengthened. so, this contentious pledge from the referendum campaign is still causing controversy now. 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 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.
11:06 pm
there is no certainty whatsoever. pro—brexit tories, though, are undeterred. we pay on average about £10 million 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. in truth, whether they 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 set out how she will find this boost for the nhs and the politics of this are almost important as the economic. theresa may is the liberally talking about the benefits of brexit ahead of another difficult week in parliament. that will please brexiteer tories but alienate others. she's tried to keep the balance in her party and now, has to balance in her party and now, has to balance the books too. 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
11:07 pm
port of valencia today after the group, which was picked up off the coast of libya, was turned away by both italy and malta. 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. 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. by taking in this boat, spain's new socialist government wants to show that a new type of migration policy for europe is possible. one where you can both control your borders
11:08 pm
and respect human rights. italy did provide two coastguard vessels to help the aquarius transport the 630 people to spain. but it was valencia's mayor who offered the ship sanctuary and so defused a crisis for europe. he describes the rejection by italy and malta of those rescued at sea as inhumane. 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. 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
11:09 pm
to prevent all private rescue boats from using its ports. if italy is going to refuse you entry, are you going to continue to pick people up out of the sea? 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. how to deal with it is dividing europe more than ever. this evening, that operation to unload those boats has completed. we know now more than 100 people had to go to hospitalfor know now more than 100 people had to go to hospital for treatment and around 50 were unaccompanied children. the story of the aquarius eliminates the deep divisions in europe about how to deal with this, but the ngo's say that is a distraction. european countries, they say, are failing and that like
11:10 pm
they say, are failing and that like the aquarius need to be out there saving lives because injust the last few days, another thousand had tried to cross to spain from north africa, from morocco, and it is thought a0 odd people drowned just over the weekend in that effort. the ngo's say that their efforts should be out on the sea, saving lives, when european governments are failing to. 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. sir christopher chope insists he was simply objecting to the practice of nodding through legislation without debate on a friday afternoon. speaking on the andrew marr show, theresa may was asked her position on the issue. i think it is invasive, it is degrading, it is offensive. what i am going to do in response is to ensure that that deal was blocked,
11:11 pm
we are going to take the bill that was blocked, the legislation that was blocked, the legislation that was blocked, the legislation that was blocked, and we will put it on government time. joining me now is the liberal democrat mp wera hobhouse, who presented the private members' bill to outlaw upskirting. thank you for coming in the. are you happy hearing what reason they had to say there? yes, and i am very pleased to have the support of the prime minister, during question time a few weeks ago she gave us her cautious support. she wanted to make sure that it was tight in terms of minister ofjustice and the home 0ffice, minister ofjustice and the home office, and then we were all going to go ahead with it. so i am played —— pleased with theresa may's support and it would be great to see it go through as soon as possible. soi it go through as soon as possible. so i hope it will come sooner. the newly knighted sir christopher chopra, what do you make of what was said today? well, the bill is not
11:12 pm
exactly very long. this is it. and then the other pages. that is all it is. it sets out the sentencing and at what it is. it is an amendment to the voyeurism offences and an amendment to the sexual offences bill. it wouldn't have taken two minutes to read this. indeed, i have tried to get hold of christopher chopra in the 2a hours leading up to the debate when it came obvious that thatis the debate when it came obvious that that is what he might do. and he was simply not available. he doesn't think that debating time should be given seems a bit odd. it seems like he and some of his colleagues actually filibuster for hours and hours in order to stop debating time. so it is not consistent of what he does other ways. he simply doesn't believe in private members bills. on this procedural aspect of
11:13 pm
it, i knowjohn virgo has said that he wants to sort that out. like you said, there is a lot of filibustering and trying to talk things through to the end. he has described what happened as scapegoating, that he came out of it feeling battered. what is your response to that? i don't like the politics of mob lynching and that sort of thing. but he has been really silly. he has been stupid and should admit that he made a mistake because he could have informed himself what this was all about and be quite honest, in the age of metoo and post harvey weinstein, it was going to look at. i warned him that if he was going as a white male to object to this, it would look stupid and he was not available for talking. he could have seen it coming, but he didn't because he didn't bother to read this small bit of legislation. he was quoted in the
11:14 pm
bournemouth echo and just to make it clear, iam bournemouth echo and just to make it clear, i am quoting them here, they described him as being part of the tories awkward squad. do you think pa rt tories awkward squad. do you think part of the problem here is that he totally misjudged timing of making this protest? absolutely. this is a bill to respond to a modern crime. facilitated by modern technology. he just doesn't seem to live in the age of modern technology, he doesn't have a twitter account fair enough, but he doesn't understand how this has blown up. i think you just com pletely has blown up. i think you just completely misjudged what he was letting himself in for. let's put christopher to one side, remind us when the next date, the hearing will be for this bills. the next date for the second reading would be the
11:15 pm
sixth ofjuly. the second reading would be the sixth of july. by the second reading would be the sixth ofjuly. by now that theresa may has announced that they want to ta ke may has announced that they want to take it and make it, actually give it government debating time, i don't really know. and we might want to find out in asking the government what their timetabling ideas are. so currently it is the sixth ofjuly, if it is going to be debated in government time before that, that would be great to. like we had theresa may saying, she wants the measures passed sooner. “— theresa may saying, she wants the measures passed sooner. —— heard. we will see how that goes. thank you very much for your time. let me give you that bill, like you say, it is only a page and a half. thank you very much. you watching bbc news. the headlines on bbc news: the prime minister promises a £20 billion a year real—terms increase to the nhs in england by 2023. labour says it's not enough, and would more than match what the government is spending. hundreds of migrants who've been the focus of a european dispute over immigration arrive in spain more than a week

11:22 pm
paul sweeney had access to film the damage. 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. the building was well alight when firefighters arrived on the scene. due to the intensity of the blaze, some fear it may need to be demolished. the mac, being such a globally recognised building, this would probably have a bit more deliberation before they come to that decision. but the consensus is beginning to grow over the last 2a hours that that might very well be the case. 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. but now, problems relating to videogames are being seen as a medical condition. from tomorrow, the world health 0rganization will recognise "gaming disorder," and issue guidelines on how to diagnose people who are addicted. 0ur media editor, amol rajan, reports.

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. it's crazy. 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. from angry birds and candy crush to the latest craze, fortnite, industry figures suggest over 37 million britons have played an electronic game 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. 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. 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. 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. but for some, gaming can become a distraction and an addiction. australian, neil robertson,
11:25 pm
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's 12 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 organization has created a new classification. gaming disorderfor digital or video gaming now officially has three characteristics. impaired control in gaming, prioritising gaming over other interests and daily activities, and an escalation in gaming despite the negative consequences. to be diagnosed, such behaviour needs to be of sufficient severity for at least a year. the royal college of psychiatrists says while there is no 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. that's a crucial moment
11:26 pm
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. 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. 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. and if you'd like advice to life online then the bbc has a digital guide with lots of advice. that's at bbc.co.uk/ownit. after 25 years, david dimbleby
