breezes around the coast, and patchy cloud drifting around, so not wall—to—wall sunshine. tuesday not quite as warm as monday but temperatures in the low to the mid 20s quite widely will stop we could see 207028 in some spots. that warming trend continues through the week. —— we could see 27 to 28 in some spots. this is bbc news. our latest headlines... new measures aimed at halving the number of obese children in england by 2030 have been announced by the government. they include plans to prevent shops displaying unhealthy food at checkouts and banning the sale of caffeine—heavy energy drinks to children we know this is what people want. 0ur we know this is what people want. our research tells us that parents really wa nt our research tells us that parents really want to see all the things that are driving them to buy more and need to cut back on. the polls have opened

in turkey's presidential and parliamentary elections — the biggest challenge to president erdogan‘s fifteen years in government. women in saudi arabia are officially allowed to get behind the wheel of a car after the authorities lifted a ban on them driving. coming up in a few minutes, our sunday morning edition of the papers. this morning's reviewers are sharma perera and henry mance. before the papers, sport. a fall round—up today and news of the world cup. the nation holds its breath. there are just over three hours to go until england play their second match at the world cup in russia. they've made the almost 600—mile journey from their training base in repino on the gulf of finland, to nizhny novgorod, where they'll play panama at1 o'clock. our sports correspondent, natalie pirks, is at the stadium for us. and, natalie, it's russia's newest stadium in what was once its most secretive city. it is one of those places that you
9:32 am
can tick off the list is one of the places you would never covered were not for football. it is really interesting. up until a quarter of a century no foreigners were an —— allowed in here because of the military nature of the place. in the 90s was when they let foreigners in. now we are finding out very welcoming. they have flags everywhere. there are people from all over the world enjoying rusher‘s fifth biggest city. —— russia. this city is where two rivers meet and it is quite striking. i will move out of the way. the 16,000 seater stadium. you can see the glass, reflective, semitransparent stadium. you can see the glass, reflective, semitra nspa rent panels which light up at night to make it look pretty. it creates a greenhouse
9:33 am
effect to make it even warmer pitch side then it is outside. it is hot, around 31 degrees today but it feels hotter at the moment. by three p:m., the local time that england will play, 1pm back home, it would be around this heat. gareth southgate has said it will not affect his players. there was no physiological benefit to them training here. they trained in repino. they are quite happy that they will be ready for kick—off. lots of speculation about who'll play tonight. we know dele's not going to play but a decision to make up front? well, i think the big issue was whether raheem sterling would be dropped and instead marcus rashford would start. raheem sterling has not
9:34 am
scored in 21 games for england. i just hope you can hear this. marcus rashford has also made a big contribution in the game against costa rica when he started. he got a man of the match performance. we understand that raheem sterling will keep his place but i think that is gareth southgate keeping faith with the team that has got them this far. ruben loftus—cheek should start ahead of dele alli because he is injured. gareth southgate was upbeat yesterday in his press conference. it is clear whose side is a very positive mood. history is not the important thing for this team. they have an opportunity to create their own history, and they should be excited about that. you know, they're a young team that are going to get better and better. i really enjoy working with all of them and i'm intrigued to see how far they can go and how well they can play, because i think we saw moments of that the other night and we've got to continue that and keep pushing and driving to be as good as we can be. as you can hear, it's very loud here
9:35 am
and will get even louder when kick—off happens. can england make it through to the last 16? that is the big question. let's have a look back at yesterday's results. and germany were just seconds from an early exit last night. the reigning champions have been knocked out in the group stages at the last two world cups. and germany looked to be following suit when 0la toivonnen gave sweden the lead. marco reus then equalised early in the second half. but germany had a man sent off and they looked doomed until toni kroos stepped up in the 95th minute to keep them alive in russia. germany are now second in group f, mexico are top after they beat south korea 2—1. west ham's javier hernandez on the scoresheet in rostov. and england not only have to win but also score a lot of goals if they're to top group g tonight.
9:36 am
that's because belgium beat tunisia 5—2, thanks to a couple of goals from a couple of premier league forwards. romelu lukaku and eden hazard both scoring twice in moscow. they play england on thursday. let's have a look at today's fixtures. england, as we know, first up against panama at 1pm. after that, it's japan against senegal at apm, and then poland versus colombia at 7pm. coverage is on bbc one and bbc radio 5 live. away from the world cup, and the england rugby union coach eddiejones, says his side are better for the series defeat against south africa. they finished with a flourish in the final test — winning 25—10 at newlands. jonny may with england's try thanks to brilliant work from danny cipriani, starting his first international test for a decade. we want to be the best team in the world, and you have to go through these periods to find out some things about yourself. we've done that, and now
9:37 am
we want to kick on in november when it all starts again. we get another 400 caps back and we've got nine or ten club games to go through before we get the team together. so, england finally got the performance they were after in south africa. but the same cannot be said for the zulu impi dancers who have become part of the pre—match build up. it was rather wet at newlands, and they struggled to stay on their feet as they ran out ahead of the teams. perhaps a taste of the good old british weather was what helped england feel at home. good work to carry on. ireland meanwhile wrapped up a historic series win against australia — their first in almost a0 years. their only try of the match coming from c] stander. the rest of the damage coming from the trusty boot ofjohnny sexton to give them a 20 points to 16 win. it means they take the series 2—1.
9:38 am
and scotland ended their summer tour with an emphatic win over argentina. peter horne scored two of their six tries in the 44 points to 15 win. in rugby league, england came from behind to ease past new zealand in a test match that was played in the us city of denver. it was england's first match since losing the world cup final last year and they looked in great form — debutantjake connor with one of the tries. 36—18 the final score. it was a busy day for england's women cricketers. they played two twenty20 games yesterday, beaten by south africa in the first. and then bouncing back to defeat new zealand. england now lead the tri—series group with four points, with one round of games left to play on thursday. england's men meanwhile are on for a series whitewash against australia. they play their fifth and final one—dayer at old trafford today. 0ur cricket reporter is henry moeran. henry, dominance from england so far, struggling to
9:39 am
remember the last time they whitewashed anyone?! they have certainly never whitewashed australia in any format. england have been erratic in some formats, especially test cricket. the one—day side have become one of the world's best. they have become so the world's best. they have become so good at limited overs format of the game. frustration for england supporters lies in the five—day game where they have been so erratic. 0ne good performance follows by a poor one. while australians back home and not be paying too much attention to it with the australian rules football season going on and particularly with the dominance that england have had, over here it is a significant day. we know this isn't a full strength australian side, so where do you think england are ahead of next year's one day world cup? no question about it. it is not a
9:40 am
full strength australian side. you look at the likes of steve smith and dave warner missing. josh hazlewood not in the squad. the big test will come in the summer against india and the 31—day matches. that will be a good sense positionally of where england are in terms of development at the next world cup. assistant coach paul farbrace is going to look after the t20 side for a couple of matches — a hint that he's being readied to take over from trevor bayliss? he is certainly one of the names will be in the hat for taking over that role. he has done it on an interim basis on a number of occasions. when we expect trevor bayliss to leave the england post, parul farbrace will certainly be one name that will be top of the list. there will be interesting to see how the t 20 goes. england have always responded very well in the past two parul farbrace. thank you for
9:41 am
joining us. that's all the sport for now. now on bbc news, here's ben with the papers. hello and welcome to our look at this morning's papers. with me are henry mance, political correspondent for the financial times, and the journalist and author, shyama perera. welcome to you both. let's just show you the front pages. the sunday telegraph leads with comments by tory mp 0liver letwin, who says that in order to cope with the housing shortage, britain needs the same levels of infrastructure and organisation used to build spitfires during world war two. the sunday times headlines with the great nhs cover—up — suggesting that the same faulty syringe pumps used in the gosport hospital scandal could have caused thousands of elderly patients to die prematurely nationwide. the mail on sunday reports on a bitter cabinet
9:42 am
row over miltary cuts — with the defence secretary gavin williamson warning the prime minister to commit an extra £20 billion to defence spending. no deal — no cash — the sunday express leads on a letter written by 60 mps and business leaders urging theresa may to get tough on brussels and threaten to withdraw our "divorce bill" money without a good trade deal at the eu council meeting next week. police fail to keep pace with soaring knife crime is the claim on the front page of the independent. it reports that two—thirds of cases remain unsolved with the number of prosecutions plummeting. so let's begin. we have got the observer which leads ona we have got the observer which leads on a picture of the demonstration in london. talking, henry, about a
9:43 am
second vote on brexit. that was the demand from weeping may be 100,000 people marching through the streets of london. —— we think may be 100,000 people. the report is interesting. 0rganisers say this was a great success. these people impart we re a great success. these people impart were expressing frustration at the process. the difficulty for them is time is very short. we are due to leave the eu at the end of march. people calling for a another referendum or maybe stopping a process do not have much time to bring that about. as a pro—eu mp, it is heartening to see this kind of passion on the streets, it gives coverfor passion on the streets, it gives cover for antics passion on the streets, it gives coverfor antics in passion on the streets, it gives cover for antics in parliament. is that the way you see it? no. we have the pincer movement coming from business. there is a complete loss of faith which has been existing for two years. an anniversary is a good
9:44 am
point at which to express it. the complete loss of faith in the political position and politicians and failure to pull off any kind of deal at all that we can start dealing with. people say if they realised there was not a plan we would not have voted and, yes, we should have a referendum. we have negotiated with ourselves as to what kind of brexit we would want rather than negotiation with the eu. in brussels he would be completely bemused that the country, two years after voting to leave, still has not decided if it wants to go through. still a lot of people are not happy with that decision and would reverse it. at government level there is no plan of sufficient detail to actually bring brexit about. from the outside this is completely baffling. in the sunday times, another warning on brexit from
9:45 am
business. of course, this is the week where airbus talked about it could cost britain thousands ofjobs india bussey industryjust as a starter. —— in the airbus industrie. there is a letter from jean—claude juncker and donald tusk warning it would cost the uk billions of pounds injobs, etc. it is the pincer movement that is coming from business finally. they have all been rumbling but now they are starting to tumble forwards. is it frustration from business that they do not know what sort of brexit it will be? they do not know what brexit it will be. that is exactly the same. it is the higher—level march by those in suits. 0n the front of the observer we march by those in suits. on the front of the observer we have people like me and people like you, in a sense, ofjust like me and people like you, in a sense, of just how like me and people like you, in a sense, ofjust how we look. it is
9:46 am
just very interesting. this is business starting to march. what i love about this is it is business chiefs worrying they are not being taken seriously. there was a quote from borisjohnson taken seriously. there was a quote from boris johnson earlier this month who said, four letter word, business. if you are a foreign chief executive or union lobby group, you must sigh and say the government is not taking it seriously. talking of things that government ministers are alleged to have said, we do not know definitely if they have been said that the mail on sunday has an interesting story about the defence secretary, gavin williamson, threatening potentially to bring down the prime minister over defence spending with a great quote he is supposed to have said. i made her andi supposed to have said. i made her and i can break up. this is the man who said that the russians should shut up and go away. in fairness to gavin williamson, who not a lot of people had heard of before he became defence secretary. he recommended
9:47 am
himself when he was chief whip. he was fundamental in getting support for two recent me. he was a valuable adviser to david cameron. —— theresa may. if you were to cause ructions in cabinet, it may well cost her a loss of goodwill and perhaps her job. it comes across as something which is ill—advised to have said. a lot of people looking at this front page will say, this person does not really know her, he is not a political heavyweight and his overplaying his hand. this debate about defence spending is interesting. we have had extra money promised for the national health service. you wonder whether the government is thinking, theresa may is thinking, can we afford to spend a lot all the same levels on defensive we are to pump that much money into the nhs? that is an extra £300 per person per yearfor the national health and another £200 per
9:48 am
person per yearfor national health and another £200 per person per year for defence spending. it is the wish list of, where should we be putting the money? this is another area in which we have made huge cuts. i think defence becomes important and nato is not enough. what do we do? you think we should be spending more on defence! i do. the nhs pledge is an electric calculation of labour is really strong on the nhs and public services. this conservatives think they can win the voters back. —— the conservatives. it does not necessarily win the many votes to increase the defence budget, which is already increasing because of trident and other things. speaking of health and the health service, the front page here is about the gosport hospital scandal. 0ne the front page here is about the gosport hospital scandal. one of the key people in bringing it to the public attention... he is
9:49 am
complaining, saying all the statistics we have seen this week we re statistics we have seen this week were released while he was on holiday. that is his claim. that is the latest, that apparently he is incandescent with rage about it. and so incandescent with rage about it. and so the sunday mirror is saying it is an exclusive but i think we have been hearing mr lamb saying quite a lot across the weeks. he has played a prominent part in the whole scandal, a bit like andy burnham over hillsborough. that is an interesting comparison. you see these instances of real misconduct being exposed and you say, what took so being exposed and you say, what took so long? 20 years ago they went to the police about this particular use of painkillers on elderly people. one dynamic being exposed as that of civil servants who have a lot of information and ministers who do not have a lot of time, he may not be completely informed and have not
9:50 am
beenin completely informed and have not been in theirjobs very long. there isa been in theirjobs very long. there is a potential, and we do not know if it is the reality or not, there isa if it is the reality or not, there is a potential for the correct information not to be passed on. no one wants to admit they got things wrong. there is huge debate to be had about the use of painkilling and pain medicine within the nhs. as we have got more and more elderly people in our hospital beds, i think there are instances where they are not being given enough pain relief when they need it. the calibration of pain relief is so important at this particular point in our health history. the sunday telegraph, we need to move on to that. that is the top story today, the government's obesity strategy. what is more appetising when you are looking at a menu ina appetising when you are looking at a menu in a restaurant than looking at a menu saying how many calories it has. we can stop children drinking
9:51 am
energy drinks. one in four six to nine—year—olds drink these very high sugar energy drinks. we can put the numberof sugar energy drinks. we can put the number of calories in a meal on a re sta u ra nt number of calories in a meal on a restaurant menu. these are not proposals at this stage. in the 0bserver, the same story. the battle against obesity being fought at the checkout. do you think the government, it has been criticised in the past on being soft on the obesity battle, but do you think it is now getting to grips with it?|j do not think the government has been soft on the obesity battle. they do not know what to do and where the buck stops. does it stop with education of the children or the pa rents ? education of the children or the parents? i speak as a person of size. i do think one problem with obesity is that children are not thinking about how many calories they are taking, they are taking
9:52 am
what they like to eat and how do you educate the palette? is it really as simple as raising them on spinach and broccoli? is it really that simple, or is there a deeper, human need for sweets and that some children, for whatever reason, because they are neglected and they are not active enough or whatever, art eating higher calorie foods? i do not know. every restaurant i get into is bursting with children sitting at tables, eating. 0ne problem apparently is children now ta ke problem apparently is children now take going out for granted in a way that they did not before. it is much harder to regulate what they are eating in a public space than is in your own kitchen. a quick look at the sunday telegraph or they have a story about housing, henry. a wartime spirit needed to fix the housing shortage. it is funny how often a wartime spirit is invoked in various public service campaigns. often a wartime spirit is invoked in various public service campaignslj do various public service campaigns.” do not think world war ii was great
9:53 am
for house—building. i think it left a few holes. this is oliver letwin, one of the conservatives coming up with ideas. it is around getting the spirit by getting everyone together, sometimes planning permission is given that houses are not built because developers sit on the land or utility companies will not put in necessary utilities. it is about getting people together and unblocking the system. it is vague for my mind. we have wimbledon coming up. will serena williams be seeded or not? i think this is an important story. in sport, it is about fitness. this exemplifies the problem women will have when they have the child. when they come back, they are not seen as able as they previously worked. there may be legitimate arguments in sport but i think it should be tested. i know she pulled out with an injury last month that she is still serena
9:54 am
williams. it just exemplifies month that she is still serena williams. itjust exemplifies the problem when a woman takes time out to have a child and comes back, she is somehow seen as vulnerable and not able to operate at the same capacity. this is quite an interesting debate for us to be having, using her as our kind of role model to discuss it. having, using her as our kind of role modelto discuss it. now, the last story we are going to talk about, the most important story of the day, england's is world cup campaign. hard on the heels of a stunning triumph against tunisia, now it is panama this afternoon and thatis now it is panama this afternoon and that is all over the papers. back pages and front pages. the heat is on foot or it is going to be very hot, we are hearing. that has traditionally been a big problem for the england team. they are not used to the heat and they get very tired. panama does not look like a great side. belgian beat them very easily. maybe because belgium are a great side! the difference in mood, had it
9:55 am
not been a draw and we have not got the injury time goal, we would be going into this match saying, make or break, it could be a complete disaster. as it is, it is all smiles and a lot of optimism. people like this team, they like the young players, the ambition of the manager. there does not seem to be lots of egos. it is a team that the country can get behind.” lots of egos. it is a team that the country can get behind. i love the way we always start with low expectations of men we get one win under our belt and we could win the world cup. can england go the whole way? world cup. can england go the whole 7 i world cup. can england go the whole way? i hope so. we have a big family lunch this afternoon and yesterday came the phone calls saying the four men would be sitting watching tv eating their lunch by the rest of us we re eating their lunch by the rest of us were at the table. did you not know the game was at one o'clock today? actually no. an error! where are you going to be watching?” actually no. an error! where are you
9:56 am
going to be watching? i think in the office. i will create some atmosphere for myself. what dedication! predictions fora result, as two footballing experts? 2-0 result, as two footballing experts? 2—0 england. ithink result, as two footballing experts? 2—0 england. i think that must be right. i know about panama it is where people disappear when they claim to be lost at sea than let's hope the panama team is lost at sea and england win. beautifully put. thank you for reviewing the sunday papers. that is it from us. you can see the front pages of the sunday papers online. it's all there for you — 7 days a week at bbc.co.uk/papers. and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. headlines coming up injust a moment. goodbye from us. the month ofjune is shaping up to be warm and dry across some parts of
