11:30 pm
‘ weather. weather. there ‘weather. there is for some cooler weather. there is some cooler weather potentially on the horizon, but not for a while. in the horizon, but not for a while. in the short term the high pressure is very much in charge of the weather, from scandinavia across much of western europe, stretching all the way down towards iberia. very little in the way of cloud. a bit of a breeze blowing on wednesday morning across southern and eastern areas. it may be the case that some of us in eastern counties will be waking up in eastern counties will be waking up to some grey skies. but very quickly it will disappear, and then it is virtually clear blue skies across the uk. once again the highest temperatures on wednesday are expected across scotland and northern ireland. at a very big difference between the coast, you can see aberdeenshire, those yellow colours close to the north sea. so we are going to see a strip of coastal counties where the temperatures will be significantly lower. for example, in norwich it may be only in the low 20s whereas across the western parts of the uk, where you see the deep oranges, temperatures might get into the 30
11:31 pm
degrees area. some mist and fog and in inland areas there will be lots of hot sunshine. on thursday another hot day on the way. again temperatures will be in the high 20s if not 30 celsius in some spots, and again that coastal strip on thursday seeing temperatures quite a bit lower. you can see the arrows coming out of the north sea, blowing towards the north sea coast. that is why we are opening scene 19 in hull and as high as 27 or 28 degrees in birmingham. the weekend is looking very warm indeed. perhaps not quite so very warm indeed. perhaps not quite so hot in some areas. in belfast down to 21 celsius, and there is an indication that as we head towards sunday night and into monday we will start to see showers, maybe some thunderstorms rolling into the south of the uk. let's look at another event coming up let's look at another event coming up in let's look at another event coming upina let's look at another event coming up in a couple of days‘s time, and thatis up in a couple of days‘s time, and that is the anniversary of the national health service. an act was
11:32 pm
established which created the first national social care system, though it was on my local authorities and they were able to charge to run those services. today, researchers are warning the nhs is at risk without more funding for social care. they estimated shortfall of millions of pounds. over two decades, there have white papers and government enquiries into reforming social care, but nothing has changed. the government's next initiative in the autumn needs to achieve more. archive: mrs finn is being attended to by someone from the old people's personal hygiene service... the early days of the care system born alongside the national health service in 1948. a glimpse of changes which would transform the lives of mrs finn and many others. the care of old people's health is also the concern of the local authority. but over time, the split between a free nhs and a means—tested care system run by councils has,
11:33 pm
according to today's report, led to fundamental unfairness. as michael basford, who grew up with the cradle—to—grave promises made then has discovered aged 83, and with dementia. it's like michael walking into a fog, and you can't quite hold onto him. as the years go by, he gets deeper and deeper into that fog, and there's nothing you can do about it. michael's wife linda looked after him for years, but when she could no longer cope, he moved to a residential home. that costs £800 a week. do you want to have another spoonful for me? although he qualifies for council help, they still pay £550 a week from their dwindling savings. because he drew the short straw, and has dementia and not some other terminal illness, he's having to pay for his treatment, because his treatment is social care. so these are some of the old reports... 70 years ago, people didn't live
11:34 pm
as long and conditions like dementia weren't a major issue. now they are, and charities like this describe the care system which provides so much of the support needed as underfunded and in crisis. when the system was set up in 1948, nobody intended to create a separate system for people with one disease rather than another. we've got that by accident rather than design. it needs to change now. june shephard also grew up in the 40s, but at 83 years old, she's helping tackle one of the other major problems facing the care system. how are you today? 0h, not too bad. she's a care worker, and in a sector which struggles to recruit and keep staff, she wants to encourage others to take on the role. i think it's very important to be part of the community. i think a lot of younger people would enjoy it, really. and she says people want to know help will be there when it's needed. from the cradle to the grave,
11:35 pm
there should be dignity always. now then. the government says it's put extra money into care and will announce plans for reforming the system in the autumn. and although so much has changed over time, the importance of getting that right remains the same. archive: for him, it's not the housework she does that counts, but the friendly human contact. alison holt, bbc news. the firefighter in charge during the initial response to the grenfell tower enquiry has broken down in tea rs tower enquiry has broken down in tears as the video was shown. our correspondent lucy manning's report does contain images of the tower on fire. just minutes after the fire started, michael dowden walked
11:36 pm
into grenfell tower with his fire crew. in the white helmet, with "incident commander" on his back, he was in charge for the first hour of the blaze. today he was shown video of the fire spreading up and across the building, with debris falling. he was asked, when the tower was alight after half an hour, if he'd thought about abandoning the stay put policy and telling the residents to evacuate. for me, at that moment in time, to facilitate and change the stay put policy to a full evacuation was impossible. i didn't have the resource at that time. we're looking at 20 floors above the fire floor, with just six fire engines in attendance. one central staircase. it's something i've never experienced as an incident commander before. as i said, i was very, very much out of my comfort zone.
11:37 pm
ijust don't know how that could have been done with the resources we had. as he had watched pictures of the tower burning, mr dowden wiped tears from his eyes and asked for a break. are you ok? can i take a break, please? yes, yes, of course. yes, of course you can. it won't have escaped anyone's attention, i'm sure, that mr dowden is finding giving this part of his evidence very difficult. the firefighter admitted as he requested more fire engines, six, then eight, then ten in a matter of minutes, he shouldn't have still been in charge. senior officers would normally have taken over. is it normal procedure for a watch manager to be in charge of a fire where there are more than six pumps? no, it's not normal. it was a fire, he said, that was developing rapidly. he was consumed by what was happening and wasn't aware of everything going on inside. but he said, "i was doing my best to carry out my duties." lucy manning, bbc news. that is a look at the main stories
11:38 pm
this evening. now time for the papers. welcome. with me are camilla tominey, who's the political editor at the sunday express, and pauljohnson, deputy editor of the guardian. thank you to coming back to take a look at what is in the pages. let's ta ke look at what is in the pages. let's take a look at the front pages, the ones that are already in this evening. the financial times reports that uber has been granted a short—term licence to operate in london, after a judge ruled it was a "fit and proper" company. metro leads with 28—year—old khalid ali, who faces life in prison after he was found guilty of plotting a terror attack outside parliament. the daily express claims prince william could be the peacemaker between israelis and palestinians, following a historic visit to israel. the i reports that a former downing street adviser has warned bickering about spending could jeopardise the chances
11:39 pm
of the conservatives winning the next general election. the daily telegraph reports that the business secretary greg clark is being accused of sowing seeds of panic, after he used a speech to urge industry leaders to use their influence to try to soften brexit. the guardian has a story about british and european trade unionsjoining forces with businesses to call on the uk government and the eu to speed up the brexit negotiations. the daily mirror says gps have voted to cap the number of daily appointments as they struggle to cope with their workload. the daily mail has reaction to thejustice minister, rory stewart, calling for prison sentences of less than a year to be scrapped, except for the most serious offences, in a bid to cut the jail population. so let's plunge in and take a look. and let's begin with the metro. this is the man convicted today, khalid ali, of a threatened terrorist attack and also being a bomb maker for the taliban in afghanistan. that's right. i mean they have put
11:40 pm
on the front page. deccan drivers, it is not too clear from this whether that is to not that they decided to lead on this. —— their contrivance. he worked in that —— told police he worked in afghanistan for about six years and made several bombs. he was caught on the way back, in fact he was not caught, he was held up, there was american intelligence apparently and he was followed. he was apprehended a p pa re ntly followed. he was apprehended apparently about to commit to terror attack outside parliament. and is smiling i think in that photograph, when he was arrested he was lurking in smiling. there were a number of different bundles, yet want go to to windsor castle, he ended up at windsor castle, he ended up at windsor castle, he ended up at windsor castle pub. of course, it was only a couple of weeks after the actual westminster attack and once again, it brought home the reality of this new kind of terrorism where although he had got by making
11:41 pm
experience, it was a case of grabbing three masted knives, which i think his mother then found in his house, and heading down... terrible really an great that the police were attracting this guy the whole way. and international —— and the value of international cooperation was a p pa re ntly of international cooperation was apparently down to the fingerprints that the fbi held. you will be licking your lips with all this, it the prospect, as the sunday express‘s political editor. the prospect, as the sunday express's political editor.|j the prospect, as the sunday express's political editor. i think both parties are at war over brexit in one way, shape or another. this is about greg clark, the brexit secretary, who is said to be close to remainers. we heard earlier in the week an argument that brexit must be as soft as possible, he is
11:42 pm
supporting that view. even though the government line is that we are in fact living being single market and the customs union, because that is what people wanted or expected when they voted for it. we might disagree with that. there are lots of difficulties because you have people like borisjohnson michael gove wanting this to happen, on the other people like cummins and greg clark perceived to be frustrating brexit. and on the other side, this isa brexit. and on the other side, this is a multisided, it is almost like the concept of collective responsibility had finally been put ina bin responsibility had finally been put in a bin and this has all come out. it has been very, very rapid. airbus came out and so be careful because there are thousands and thousands of jobs at risk you. we then have the foreign secretary talking about f business, you then have greg clark saying we need to listen to
11:43 pm
business. tonight, it had the cbi and tuc, representing barca the different interest, but they come together at this time, saying we are in difficulty, people's livelihoods at at stake and are being played with because of politics. somebody was saying he will not lie in front ofa was saying he will not lie in front of a bulldozer but he will lie in front of the bus and i think...m is interesting as well with the whole playing politics, we can talk about cabinet infighting that there also been a whole lot of politics overin also been a whole lot of politics over in brussels. it would be interesting if airbus is also sending this message over to claw john kerr and michelle barnier and. if two sides want the deal, one does wonder why they can't just write on without so much posturing on both sides? it is very striking, isn't
11:44 pm
as? there was one conservative saying on radio that this is chaos, it can really damage the conservative brand and the type of damage could be really serious. chaos might be overplaying it but there is not essential message here, and the idea stop lights is that? because he is not, theresa may is not ina because he is not, theresa may is not in a particularly strong position with a strong majority. there is this sense that she is vulnerable and therefore people can speak out of school. the more macro point is if you have conservative members of saying f business, people will wonder why they are voting for what are traditionally fiscally conservative intervals. should be left to be delighted by this, or worried? they are bound to be
11:45 pm
worried. the inexorable problems don't go away. the idea you could remain in the customs union but not the measured on freedom of movement, the measured on freedom of movement, the idea that the border can be solved in one way or another, it is only a year ago to this very day that the dup trousered their cash for votes deal and one year on we are in difficulties on the irish border. it is very hard to see how that will be solved. the tax row is damaging the tories. well, the dup doesn't want one, and ireland doesn't want one, and ireland doesn't want one, and ireland doesn't want one. varadker is heavily overplaying his hand here. —— varadkar. there has been a soft borderfor —— varadkar. there has been a soft border for years, —— varadkar. there has been a soft borderfor years, even during the troubles. even the head of customs and excise has said there is no way
11:46 pm
there will be a hard border. 2% of exports are affected by this anyway. it has been weaponised by remainiacs. you did say remainiacs. we will park that want to talk about tax. this is an important question for the tories. an important question for voters, i guess. tax damaging the tories is the i's front page. and a crossbench peer who has aligned himself with labour suggesting that there may be need for tax rises to pay for social care. he is now saying social care as well. we are back to brexit, with the brexit dividend which would infuse money into the health service, which of course the ifs
11:47 pm
said was impossible. he spoke in a similar way thatjeremy hunt has been thinking about that. quite progressive thinking, and simon stephens thinks like that as well, that you have to see health in the round, but social care is a vital pa rt round, but social care is a vital part of that. jeremy hunt has vowed to get that social care as part of his remit. simon stephens has argued you need generational change, real difference, and you probably need money to be transferred from one generation to another. i think that is quite progressive thinking. this is quite progressive thinking. this is particularly about national insurance, the abandonment of national insurance at the age of 65. he is saying would be right to put it into social care? i think that would right. it would receive quite a warm welcome in some areas. would right. it would receive quite a warm welcome in some areasm proved to be a difficult subject for conservatives at the last general election. you had that rerating of policy on the trot. but it is a problem which won't go away. the whole policy went down like a lead
11:48 pm
balloon in the manifesto. it was so badly packaged and presented, only one in five would be affected, but six in six thought they would. pensioners felt rather got at, and traditionally they are voting for the tories in that generation above 65. it is interesting. i think most people on the street think it is ludicrous that social care and the nhs are not budgeted in the same budget, and there is this onus on local authorities, who have different demographics, and generational lee as well, authorities with old people need more money. some inner—city london boroughs are not in the same situation as rural wiltshire. once again, a political hot potato which keeps being thrown around without much of a solution. and with the 70th anniversary next week, it could act as a kickstart to this. and the forgotten piece, it is also the
11:49 pm
national assistance act, which was the foundation of social care. we will go to the front page of the express. we went to page two, camilla, wearing your royal editor hat, what do you make of this trip? i think it is interesting prince william is the one to do it and it is appropriate, he is not a particularly controversial figure in the royal family. prince charles can be more divisive whereas william is being positioned as a statesman now, he is second in line to the throne and will one day be king. it is interesting because there is a family connection, so prince philip, his mother, his grandmother, shielded jews from the nazis and was given an honour for it. shielded jews from the nazis and was given an honourfor it. he met with holocaust victims today and he will go and see palestinians in the next couple of days, which makes it quite evenly balanced. it might be overstating it here to suggest he
11:50 pm
will be the peacemaker, but that is rather an insoluble situation. william has gone on this trip, it furnishes his reputation on the international stage. the picture is very striking and meaningful, but the idea that this could kickstart the idea that this could kickstart the peace process, you need to remember that it was only in may that 120 protesters in gaza were shot dead by the idf. a pretty appalling relationship between the two sides in that sense, and no chance of a figure like this kickstarting the peace process. that is fanciful. let's go home to the front of the daily mail, and we will leave aside the return of the wags, and concentrate on the really intriguing suggestion. not the first conservative crossbencher to talk about reducing the prison population, but rory stewart is
11:51 pm
saying effectively shorter sentences, don't bother. two i have interviewed rory stewart, and he made some very practical points about prisons. one of the first things to do was fixed windows, because drugs were getting through. there is this idea of rehabilitation for criminals who have done less serious offences. if we are talking about murder, sexual offences, there is an expectation quite that people should be locked up. and i went to visit him in the prison, and they are doing great work to get young people who are not institutionalised back into work. in order to reduce recidivism. i don't know if it does not. then you have a situation with young offenders being very close to belmarsh, thejihadi we mentioned might end up there. it is not a one size dole solution, the daily mail —— one size fits all solution. although the numbers have doubled to
11:52 pm
83,000, now they have come down. although the numbers have doubled to 83,000, now they have come downm is an interesting construct. rory stewart is once again quite think these things. but you get to fury and anger, and then you get it is an idiotic suggestion says philip davies, and that is a giveaway. the man who talked out of domestic bill, and tried to talk out of making it free to park in hospitals is somewhat of a maverick, and that is the polite word in parliament, i think, you would know better than me. maverick in quotation marks, but in trying to address this overcrowding and the poor conditions inside prisons, it is to be welcomed. and uber on the front of the ft. it has its london licence back despite the grumblings of the net. that's right, so sadiq khan and
11:53 pm
tfl have called it a chaotic company. they have gone to court and been given a 15 month licence. they say they have grown up, the judge has accepted that. they say they will carry out audits, do voluntary first case reporting of serious offences and background checks. but i don't think you will have to go far to find i don't think you will have to go farto find a i don't think you will have to go far to find a black cabdriver who thinks things haven't changed. in the last few years 20,000 black cab licences were granted, and about 100,000 private licenses. you can see this exploding. let's move on to the guardian, and a lovely picture of the winner of the global teacher award. i met this woman. sadly we will talk about donald trump, who
11:54 pm
has come up trumps in the us supreme court. what makes me laugh about this story is we know this has happened because there is a tweet in capitals. nothing like talking about yourself in the third person to indicate some level of lunacy. wow! 5-4 indicate some level of lunacy. wow! 5—4 ruling, so not exactly... indicate some level of lunacy. wow! 5-4 ruling, so not exactly... not a thumping victory. and in the melee of everything trump announces, we do forget the travel ban which happened some months ago, and we needed to be updated with that. this notion that people from muslim countries can't come 01’ people from muslim countries can't come or need to be rigorously check. they have upheld his right to make these, not to ban itself. they say they are not making a judgement on they are not making a judgement on the merits or otherwise. the times has this wonderful picture of these swimmers jumping into the sea of aberystwyth. it was very hot, we
11:55 pm
have to say. any advice for what you do in hot temperatures? you work in sweaty officers. good tips? well, oui’ sweaty officers. good tips? well, our officers like a goldfish bowl. it is not ideal. the only thing i thought about this is with the health and safety brigade say you shouldn't be jumping in health and safety brigade say you shouldn't bejumping in unmanned bodies of water? that is often the advice you get from police in these circumstances. it is great for stories, you have dogs rescued from cars, and while temperatures soar and england march on in the world cup, there is beer rationing in some parts of britain. it is a real crisis. the timing, you can't make it up. thank you both very much. we will be keeping cool over the next few days. thank you for your company this evening. don't forget you can see the front pages online on the bbc news website. it's all there for you seven days
11:56 pm
a week at bbc.co.uk/papers. and if you miss the programme any evening, you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you, camilla and paul. goodbye. you know the one good thing about this heat is that at least it hasn't been overly humid. the heat has actually been relatively dry. that also means the temperatures overnight have been pretty decent. not too high. wednesday will be another hot day. we suspect the hotspots will actually be in scotla nd hotspots will actually be in scotland and northern ireland on wednesday, so for a change it is not going to happen across some southern and western parts of the uk. that is because we have more of a breeze off the north sea. in terms of the weather off rest of europe, the high pressure is in charge across
11:57 pm
scandinavia, much of central and western europe. you may have noticed a glimpse of low pressure across the greek islands, but this is what we have got first thing in the morning on wednesday. see what i mean? it is not desperately want, 13 or 1a in london, single figures in the north. so the nights have been relatively 0k, so the nights have been relatively ok, compared to what it can be in oui’ ok, compared to what it can be in our climes when we get heatwaves. tomorrow it may start a little cloudy for some of the eastern counties, and the eastern counties will also be fairly cool, relatively speaking. look at this coastal strip from dundee, newcastle, hull into norwich and the kent coast. temperatures in the low 20s, whereas where the deep orange is it is approaching 30 degrees. a big temperature contrast between the north sea coast where at times we will see some less than five and that much sunnier western coast. the same thing will happen on thursday.
11:58 pm
again, some coastal areas may wake up again, some coastal areas may wake up to again, some coastal areas may wake uptoa again, some coastal areas may wake up to a little bit of cloud. you can see hull at 21. look at that in the lowla nds see hull at 21. look at that in the lowlands of scotland. 30 celsius. so that doesn't happen too often at all across scotland. friday the temperatures at ease off a little bit. 23 celsius in the lowlands of scotland. starting to hot up in the south at around 28 celsius. now, if you are making plans for the weekend, it looks as though temperatures will stay in the high 20s across the south of the country. but in the north, for example in glasgow, it looks as though things are going to give away a little bit. here is the weekend's summary. some sunny spells turning more humid and the possibility of some thunderstorms heading into southern parts of the uk. in the short term, it looks like the heat wave will continue. stay cool. who will —— i'm rico hizon in singapore.
11:59 pm
the headlines: president trump hails a supreme court ruling upholding his travel ban targeting five muslim—majority countries as "a tremendous success". but many migrants remain uncertain what trump's policy is now and how it will affect them. we have a special report from the us—mexico border. i'm babita sharma in london. also in the programme: four days on and the search continues for the missing youth football team trapped in caves in thailand. we do believe the boys are inside there alive, and they are hoping they can climb up to the top of these hills and reached
