9:00 pm
hello, i'm kasia madera, this is outside source from the bbc‘s newsroom in london. the uk is playing host to president trump. the prime minister has welcomed him, along with the first lady to bleinheim palace in oxfordshire, where they're currently sat down to dinner with 150 invited guests. protesters however gathered outside as he arrived. controversy has long surrounded this visit, and it's expected thousands will march against it over the next few days the uk parliament finally publishes its blueprint on brexit, amid chaotic scenes in parliament and we'll be covering the extraordinary rise of kyliejenner, from the kardashian clan, who's on track to become the world's youngest—ever self—made billionaire. donald trump is in the uk.
9:01 pm
he's having dinner with theresa may as we speak. here's how he arrived. he met the prime minister and her husband at blenheim palace in oxfordshire. well, that's all very serene. but meanwhile across the uk, a different kind of reception. these are some of the pictures coming into the newsroom. protests have been held in london and around the uk. this isjust outside blenheim palace, where mr trump is meeting mrs may. protesters also gathered at regents park where the us ambassador‘s residence is and where president trump is due to sleep this evening. people also gathered to demonstrate
9:02 pm
on whitehall, near the offices of the british government. and in cambridge, crowds also gathered to express their opinions. just a little snapshot of what is taking place. the president's already spoken about the protests earlier in the day, and he seemed unconcerned. ijust want the people to be happy. they're great people. and i do think i have, sure there'll be protests, because there are always protests. but i think they will protest the night of the election, both ways. it's been a busy day for the president. he made those comments there in brussels, where he attended the second day of the nato summit in the morning. from there, he flew to stansted airportjust outside of london and was taken by helicopter to the us ambassador's residence.
9:03 pm
mr trump is usually seen being ferried around in his armoured limo, the beast, but on this occasion he is being transported by a military helicopter called marine one. some think this is an attempt to minimise mr trump's contact with the protests being held around the country. that has been refuted by the white house. the us embassy has issued a warning that staff should keep a "low profile" over the next few days. and here's the security in place around winfield house where the president will be staying the night. and now we can talk to christian fraser who's outside blenheim palace. so we saw a lot of pomp and
9:04 pm
circumstance democrat ceremony. it's not a statement, but it could've been. it's been a beautiful day here in oxfordshire, and of course you have this fabulous setting of blenheim palace, and we had the marine one coming right over the top of our position, the decoy helicopters, plenty of people coming out to watch the spectacle this evening. it set down in the grounds of blenheim palace. and there was teresa and philip mabe waiting for the president —— theresa may... and if you want an impression of the stature of the american president there, it was in the limousine as he drove up towards the palace. from theresa may's point of view, given she had extended the invitation as far as 18 months ago and then watered it down to what they call a
9:05 pm
two—day working visit. it will have flatter the president, he likes this sort of thing, we know he likes his ego stroked. from a british perspective, what we saw tonight will have gone very done very well indeed. 150 top leaders in the british industry and british business had been invited, but not the queen? not the queen, there's not a state dinner or a carriage procession, no address to the joint houses a of parliament. but tonight in the grandeurof houses a of parliament. but tonight in the grandeur of blenheim palace, they will be sitting with 150 business executives, the top ceos in the country, those who have connections between the uk and the united states, like the head of gold sachs, facebook uk. someone who will not be there is baroness martha may
9:06 pm
fox. she was extended an invitation and that she would not be coming, saying she understood by the uk government was injured in the us president, but she didn't have to. there were thoughts on some of those business leaders going. from the government's perspective, what they're hoping these business leaders will impress on donald trump is the importance of the ties, the connections between the two countries, the importance of free trade in a time when he is imposing those tariffs. and also the importance of that deal that they are hoping to secure with the united states post brexit. when it comes to good pr, this was good pr for donald trump, because this will be shown backin trump, because this will be shown back in the us and they love this kind of pomp and circumstance. very much so. i think it will have gone down very well in the us. this is the sort of thing he likes, he is a
9:07 pm
man who can create his own publicity, we saw that in brussels at the nato summit. and perhaps tomorrow when they go to the lunch, he will be grading other headlines with his comments about brexit. but tonight it was all about the imagery, the sort of red carpet treatment that was rolled out there for the president. of course there'll be some focus on the protest, and that will have been carried by the american networks. but he will not have seen that from the helicopters, he was even brought ina the helicopters, he was even brought in a different direction from blenheim palace so he wouldn't have to pass the front gates and those we re to pass the front gates and those were gathered. he might have heard it, i don't know, but he would certainly see it if he turns on his television when he gets back to when fieldhouse tonight at the house of the american ambassador. that's when fieldhouse. maybe he will comment about the protest tomorrow. there are more about the protest tomorrow. there a re more protests about the protest tomorrow. there are more protests lined up for tomorrow, bigger protests, and we will see that big blimp, the £18,000 blimp that will be flying tethered
9:08 pm
to parliament square, a trumpet baby, and that will fly for two hours next to the houses of parliament during the time that he will be on his way to lunch with theresa may. thank you very much, christian fraser at fraser field, just outside blenheim palace. tens of thousands of people are expected to protest against the president in london and glasgow on friday. foi’ now, we can cross to frankie mccamley. frankie is outside the us ambassador‘s residence where we are expecting the president to return in a short time. people are gathering there already? they have been and they have been gathering throughout they have been gathering throughout the day. i've been here from around 4pm — 5pm. we saw protesters coming here to make noise, and i think that
9:09 pm
was the feeling here that people wa nted was the feeling here that people wanted to make noise. probably around 7pm this evening, we saw 150 protesters bringing what they could to make the noise they wanted to. theiraim was to to make the noise they wanted to. their aim was to keep donald trump up their aim was to keep donald trump up all night, they wanted to —— they brought pots and pans, whatever they could bells were ringing. it was a very different site a few hours ago, people holding placards that read all sorts of things, telling trump to go home, even going so far as to say "put trump in jail, to go home, even going so far as to say "put trump injail, he's not welcome here". that was the main message coming through, and we are about a quarter of a mile from when fieldhouse. a huge security fence here has been put up to keep people back. extra security measures are in place, around 50 metro police officers joining place, around 50 metro police officersjoining the us place, around 50 metro police officers joining the us secret service here so this was a ring of
9:10 pm
steel around where trump and his wife will be spending their evening where not quite sure about times when they'll be coming, but i am joined by one of the protesters. thank you so much forjoining us. you've been here for a few hours, tell us about what your message is, why are you here to protest? i'm here to express might this dislike for a whole range of trump's policies that he... some people think protesters are here for the sake of it, and i'm not sure howl feel about the noise, but his palette that its policies on climate change, the iran nuclear deal, sexual assault allegations, there is a huge range of policies am fundamentally opposed and i'm here to here to express that. there is also a whole lot of support here, saying trump is during the rule book and going on a completely different way. you share any of those views?|j don't. way. you share any of those views?” don't. i work on brexit, and those
9:11 pm
feelings are very similar in they tend to be not pragmatic, very hypothetical and not based in natural policies. i'm here to say i'm opposed to the actual policies he's introduced. the high number of resignations, the facts are more important than wishy—washy statements about what he is trying to do. and there were probably around 150 people here, numbers are dwindling and the park is said to be glowing disclosing. are you staying here all night? some people were saying they would state all night and not let donald trump have any sleep. i don't agree with that, let them and go to bed and have some rest. i don't like his policies, but it's great that people will stay, maybe not so noisy. i will even a couple of hours and rejoin the proper match tomorrow. that use a much forjoining us. it looks like numbers are dwindling, there are a dozen protesters left this evening. as people wait for donald trump's returned this evening, where he will be staying and spinning a night here
9:12 pm
in london before heading up to scotla nd in london before heading up to scotland tomorrow. thank you very much, as always. frankie isjust outside the us ambassador‘s residence, where the president and the first lady will be spending their night before they have a packed agenda tomorrow. he will be having tea with the queen, although this is not a state visit. stay with us this is not a state visit. stay with us here outside source. she's famous, like the rest of the kardashian clan, but kylie jenner aged just 20, is more than that — she's on course to become the world's youngest self—made billionaire. charlie rowley, the man who was poisoned by the nerve agent novichock, has been able to receive a visit from his family. he is still in a critical condition in hospital in salisbury. his partner dawn sturgess, who was also poisoned, has died. his brother, matthew rowley spoke to the bbc‘s alexandra mackenzie. i was quite taken aback when i walked in.
9:13 pm
i didn't really recognise him. he gave me a big smile when i walked in, but he wasn't what i remembered him like. he was very thin. he could barely talk, really. but he was communicating, we had a good conversation. i couldn't really get close to him. he had so many tubes coming out of him, and wires. it was pretty horrific watching and seeing it. and i couldn't really get to shake his hand or anything, so ijust wiggled his toes. this is 0utside source, live from the bbc newsroom. 0ur lead story. president trump is in the uk for a working visit. the prime minister theresa may welcomed him earlier, along with the first lady, to bleinheim palace in 0xfordshire for a banquet.
9:14 pm
let's have a look at some stories on the bbc‘s language services. the syrian government has re—ta ken control of the southern city of deraa, where the revolt against president assad began seven years ago. pictures on state tv showed the syrian flag being raised in the main square, after government vehicles accompanied by russian troops entered the area. that's on bbc arabic. archaeologists in mexico have discovered an ancient temple hidden inside a pyramid that had been damaged by an earthquake. the chamber was discovered when scientists used a radar to check for structural damage following last september's 7.1 magnitude quake. that's on bbc mundo. and this clip has been widely watched on our website. 200 kilogrammes of explosives were used to blow up this partially—built bridge in colombia. authorities decided to destroy it
9:15 pm
after it collapsed injanuary, killing nine workmen. they say another bridge will be erected in its place. the british government has finally published its blueprint, a white paper, for how it sees the uk's future relations with the eu after brexit. here it is. one of the proposals is for a common rule book with the eu on goods. arguments over that and the rest of the document have already led to two cabinet resignations. here's our political editor laura kuenssberg. every now and then, in boring rambling boxes are government
9:16 pm
documents that really matter. in there, theresa may's plan for life outside the eu. we had just come out of this mornings briefing. the document has been kept so tightly under wraps that we have not been the document has been kept so tightly under wraps that we have not been allowed to bring out of the building. the white paper does in detail spell a much closer relationship with the rest of the eu after brexit, that many brexiteers had hoped for. but for the prime minister point of view, it is time to compromise and except we cannot have it all. the 98 page document spells out a common rule book for manufacturing. the uk will follow eu rules. the government is not aiming for one big agreement on services but new arrangements instead. to cover the vast majority of the economy. the overall deal will be policed by a new governing body. the european court will have the final say but will interpret the rule. —— will not have the final say. the citizens will be able to come without visas to do paid work in some circumstances. not yet defined. for those who like dramatic break with the established order, guess who, it is not as much of the separation is
9:17 pm
brexit might have been. before ministers had a chance to explain, president trump tried to do it for them. i have been reading a lot about brexit the last couple days and it seemed to be turning a little differently where they are getting partially involved back with the european union. i do not know if that is what they voted for. awkward. given the prime minister was leaving for home to welcome the american president on his visit to the uk. they voted for us to take back control of our money, our law, and our borders. that is exactly what we will do. will stop sending vast contributions to the eu every year. we will ensure the european court ofjustice does not have jurisdiction in the uk any longer and we will ensure we bring an end to free movement. the white paper should have been made available. it will be immediately... but the brand—new brexit secretary had some problems
9:18 pm
explaining at home. only at the very last minute did mps see the plan. boxes rushed into the commons. copies being handed around. it was such a ruckus that the session was stopped. i will suspend the sitting of the house. smooth and orderly brexit? not quite. the uk won't get to decide on this alone. the eu's brexit negociator, michel barnier reminds us that "we will now analyse the #brexit white paper. looking forward to negotiations with the #uk next week." for more on that reaction from brussels here's our europe editor, katya adler. the mood music here is pretty positive. the eu has been asking the uk for a long, long time to come up with a detailed position on how it's imagined eu—uk relations to be like after brexit. well now, brussels have it. also, the eu sees that theresa may is moving towards a softer brexit, which the eu prefers.
9:19 pm
but when it comes to content, eu officials are far more cautious. we heard from michel barnier in a tweet today, the eu's chief negotiator. he said, "we need time to analyse this white paper". it's a dense and a long white paper, but privately, the eu already already rejects large parts of the white paper, but it but it sees it as a springboard to restart face—to—face negotiations this monday. another reason why eu leaders today are reluctant to competent in detail is because they see that febrile political atmosphere back in the uk, and they think that whatever they may comment or criticise in the white paper could just add fuel to the fire. the uk government has cleared a proposed dealfor rupert murdoch's 21st century fox to buy sky. the british broadcaster has been the subject of a fierce bidding war between fox and us cable giant comcast. our business editor simon jack explains what's at stake. so why does everyone
9:20 pm
want to get their hands on sky? basically there is a global arms race going on in the media world, both for content, so you are seeing a merger between disney and 21st century fox in the pipeline, and also for distribution. because as the new pretenders, people like netflix began to chip away at the distributional home turf for places like the us, some of the established names need to get more global and more global distribution quickly. and with sky, you have the number one european pay—tv provider, with subscribers in germany in the uk, italy, austria, ireland, spain. basically on a plate in one go, you get massive european distribution, and that is precisely what comcast want, what 21st century fox want, and what disney want by its takeover of fox. so it is a massive land grab, and in this land grab, price becomes secondary to scale,
9:21 pm
and that's why you are seeing this intense bidding war for sky. the founder of the papa john's pizza chain, the third biggest in the world, has stepped down as chairman of the company. john schnatter has apologised after using a racial slur during a conference call. kim gittleson is in new york. he is prone to controversy, isn't he? he is. if you remember, he was the chief executive of a company up untiljanuary the chief executive of a company up until january of this the chief executive of a company up untiljanuary of this year, but he had to step down after comments he made in november suggesting that because the nfl leagues players, the football in us, not the other football in us, not the other football people be thinking of. he blamed kneeling players for a
9:22 pm
decline in revenue at papa john's, saying he did not approve of the anti—patriotic stance of the players we re anti—patriotic stance of the players were taking, and that led to declining pizza sales. that led to it -- declining pizza sales. that led to it —— an outcry here, so he stepped down as chief executive but remained on the board of the company. in may, he was on a training call with a pr firm where they reportedly had asked him how he would try to differentiate himself from online racists and how he could try to prove that he was not a white supremacist. and a court —— according to forbes magazine that broke the story, he said that some people use the word, colonel sanders used the n—word, and i don't know why i can't. that cause consternation with both the pr firm and with pa pa consternation with both the pr firm and with papa john's staff and board members, and that's why he has resigned. he confirmed this report in his resignation letter, i want to say it is notjust repeating the forbes reporting here. it's ironic
9:23 pm
because it was meant to be a training session on how to deal with difficult situations. exactly, it seems like something out of a comedy, almost. buti seems like something out of a comedy, almost. but i want to say that investors were pleased with his decision to step down. we saw that shares in papa john's soared after the decision was made, the clay is disclosed that over 11% today, which was notable because the chain has been declining from sales. after the report came out on wednesday, it hit a year low. good news for investors and maybe for some shareholders and papa john's, as well. thank you, as always, kim. "keeping up with the kardashians" star kyliejenner may be tough. according to forbes, she's worth $900 million atjust 20 years of age. the business magazine said the social media star looks set to become "the youngest—ever self—made billionaire". the youngest member of the kardashian clan started selling her own cosmetics three years ago. here's chi chi izundu. kyliejenner, 20 years old, a new mum, and according to forbes magazine, $100 million short
9:24 pm
of being the youngest ever self—made billionaire. we knew we didn't want to do this with anyone else, i didn't want to sell in any other store. she's the youngest of the kardashian—jennerfamily and has featured on their reality tv show "keeping up with the kardashians" from the age of ten. but her fortune comes from selling lipsticks and lip liners. i really wanted to show you guys first. $900 million is how much she's estimated to be worth and she's amassed that amount in just under three years. what's interesting with kyliejenner is that she obviously endorses brands but with her make—up range she is the brand and she already has this huge social following. so, suddenly, her social following becomes her potential customer base. so there's a lot of money to be had when she has over 110 million people following her on instagram. and that's the difference between her and more traditional brands. her kind of audience want quick—to—market products they find out about on social media. and that's one of the contributing factors to kylie's success. she wears her make—up
9:25 pm
and shows her tens of millions of social media followers exactly how to use it. the only problem is is that not everyone is as impressed with the term "self—made billionaire". herfamily are minted! laughter she didn't come from nothing, she came from a foundation. you were just talking about kylie jenner. what were you talking about? how, like, it's crazy that she's the youngest billionaire in the world. why is it crazy? because she's, like, our age and it's like... it seems like she doesn't do anything all day. but it's fun because if you have that opportunity, coming from that family, you know what i mean? you're taking your opportunities. we would do the same. mark zuckerberg was declared a billionaire by 23, and if kylie continues on this projection, she could be one before 22 and superfans are helping. they're crowdfunding to get her to that mark. chi chi izundu, bbc news. we'll be back shortly. first the
9:26 pm
weather around the world. let me show you a satellite picture of a typhoon that is no longer a typhoon. this area of cloud here moving into eastern china in the past day or so. you can see the eye of the typhoon, look at fall apart once it's made landfall. this tropical weather system needs to the heat from tropical water to maintain strength. but they lost that and weakened quickly. still very powerful ones made landfall in china with widespread destruction, flooding rain, lots of trees down. major problems as the system hit the land, but then moving inland, we can barely pick it out in an area of showers and storms. we may not be done with tropical weather, we're looking east the philippines and and
9:27 pm
trip —— developing cyclone which may go on to china once again. that is something we will follow once again. you may have been following the flooding injapan, you may have been following the flooding in japan, the you may have been following the flooding injapan, the deadly historic flooding from just huge rainfall amounts. dry weather at the moment, just a few showers and storms, and some heat across the korean peninsula. another satellite picture, another tropical system, this is hurricane chris. this is the east coast of canada, that's how far north as is. it's transitioning to a non troppo cool weather system, but it will bring some heavy rain to newfoundland before moving between iceland and scotland as we go through the weekend —— tropical weather system. more about that and the weather in half an hour. usa and canada, this weather front with strong storms associated with it. severe thunderstorms possible as they migrate their weight further east. looking at things in terms of your city forecast, toronto and montr al will see storms moving
9:28 pm
through in new york, for now there is more hot sunshine on the way. taking you to more rain, this is india, the annual monsoon rains which is now moving his way further north. those downpours have reached into new delhi, bringing the temperature down. but over the weekend, the heaviest rain will be western coastal parts, which could see some extremely heavy rainfall. there are weather warnings in force for that. let's look closer to home, a picture across europe. if you are travelling this weekend, what a fine, dry, hot weatheracross western pa rt fine, dry, hot weatheracross western part stretching into scandinavia. 27 degrees the high in also. showers and storms around, those are further east. this band of cloud will be going into parts of scotla nd cloud will be going into parts of scotland and northern ireland, bringing some outbreaks of patchy rain, whereas england and wales, plenty of fine and sunny weather, warm to hot this weekend.
9:29 pm
hello, i'm kasia madera, this is 0utside source. the prime minister has welcomed him, along with the first lady to bleinheim palace in 0xfordshire where they're currently sat down to dinner with 150 invited guests. protesters however gathered outside as he arrived. controversy has long surrounded this visit, and its expected thousands will march against it, over the next few days we'll have a report from japan on the clean up after the floods, and an incredible story of how one couple survived. young as the waters flooded, they we re young as the waters flooded, they were forced onto the outside roof. it was there they saw a rescue boat. and why cuba is helping out kenya, by lending it some of its most valuable exports — its doctors. president trump has arrived
9:30 pm
in the uk, it's his first visit here since taking office. he's currently meeting the prime minister tonight, and will also meet the queen tomorrow at windsor. as our diplomatic correspondent james robbins reports, it's being seen as the most controversial visit by any us president to britain. the moment president trump finally made it to britain. touched down at stansted. not for a still promised state visit, but a much scaled—down working visit. that reflects a country split down the middle over having him here at all. the president and first lady melania were greeted on behalf of the government by liam fox, international trade secretary. that underlines theresa may's key aim, to boost post brexit trade with the us. the president was back in the air again almost immediately on board marine one to head
9:31 pm
for his ambassador‘s official residence in london's regent's park. his only stop in the capital. protesters on the ground seem unlikely even to catch a glimpse of him. earlier today at nato in brussels, the president was wrapping up a summit where he's ripped into allies, particularly germany, accusing them of underfunding europe's defence at america's expense. i'm going to a few hotspots, we have nato and then we have the uk, and then we have putin. and i said, putin may be the easiest of them all. you never know. but i'm going to a pretty hot spot right now with a lot of resignations. donald trump has called britain a country in turmoil but insists he is very about protests against him. protests, there might be protests, but i believe that the people in the uk, scotland, ireland, as you know i have property in ireland, i have property all over, i think that those people, they like me a lot, and they agree
9:32 pm
with me on immigration. but there are plenty of people who dislike him and his views intensely, some are ready with a balloon mocking baby trump to be flown tomorrow 30 metres above the thames, while others have already unfurled a banner on vauxhall bridge. i'm against the misogyny and racism. i'm against his politics, generally. i don't think he should have been invited. his policies are totally abhorrent. but the president is shielded from all this as he prepares to start what will be a tour of stately homes of england, chequers for talks with theresa may tomorrow, then windsor castle for talks with the queen. i think donald trump will have wonderful and fruitful conversations with the prime minister because at the end of the day, it doesn't matter who is president or who is prime minister, the long—standing relationship between our two countries will endure.
9:33 pm
donald trump's first engagement tonight is dinner at blenheim palace in oxfordshire, the grandest of venues. birthplace of winston churchill, one of his heroes. business leaders from both sides of the atlantic will be the principal guests. in her speech, theresa may seems certain to urge them to spend and invest even more. while others held at the gates share their message too. james robbins, bbc news. donald trump began the day by giving a press conference after a two day nato summit in brussels, which he described as a "fantastic couple of days". here's why. i told people i would be very unhappy if they did not up their commitments vary substantially, because the united states has been paying a tremendous amount, probably 90% of the cost of nato, and now people are going to start, and countries are going to start upping their commitments, so i let them know yesterday.
9:34 pm
i am surprised you did not pick it up. it took until today, but yesterday, i let them know that i was extremely unhappy with what was happening and they have substantially up their commitment, yeah. and now we are very happy and have a very powerful, very strong nato. much stronger than it was two days ago. he's referring to the fact that he wants nato members to increase their military spending to more than 2% of their annual economic output. but the president's claim that he'd achieved that was almost immediately refuted by leaders of other nato member states. translation: everyone is committed to increasing spending in line of what was done in 2014. everyone is committed to confirming this trajectory, and everyone is committed to the goals we have set ourselves. we reaffirmed our commitment in the joint statement to the wales declaration, to the wales agreement, and in wales, all nato countries have agreed to reverse the cuts
9:35 pm
and move towards 2%. but nato secretary generaljens stoltenberg, was quick to praise the us president for his leadership on defence spending. something noted by many journalist covering the event, like the washington post's philip rucker who said stoltenberg was trying to project unity among allies and give trump the credit. here's what he said. we are committed, i think the fact that we have this open discussion has also clearly stated that we will redouble our efforts and it also shows that the clear message from president trump is having an impact. now mr trump has been throwing around a lot of numbers in relation to how much the us spends
9:36 pm
on defence in europe. we've been taking a closer look at his claims in this article on the bbc news website. it gives a comprehensive look at how involved the us is in nato and how this compares to the other member states. and here's the view of one analyst on how much the us has been spending on nato. the challenge here is that the president is misspeaking at every opportunity about these costs. the united states spends 3.5% of its gdp on defence spending. that does not all go to europe. it spends 22% of direct costs towards nato and it does spend upwards of 67% of those indirect costs. that is afghanistan operations. that is something the us is doing with nato. we cannot distort these facts.
9:37 pm
it is really important to make sure we are accurate. after his four day trip here in the uk, mr trump will head to helsinki for talks with russia's president, vladmir putin. nato member states will no doubt be watching this meeting closely. of course from a russian point of view, nato is seen not as a defensive alliance but as a threat. since it was established in 19119, nato member states have expanded eastward, getting closer to the russian border. but mr trump was quick to downplay his relationship with mr putin. he has been very nice to me. the times i have met him. i have been nice to him. he is a competitor. somebody is saying he is an enemy. he is not my enemy. is he a friend? no, i do not know him well enough. but the couple of times
9:38 pm
that i have gotten to meet him, we get along very well. you saw that. i hope we get along well. i think we get along well. but ultimately, he is a competitor. he is representing russia. i am representing the united states. so, in a sense, we are competitors. not a question of friend or enemy. he is not my enemy. present time set that might be the easiest meeting of the next two days. stay with us on outside source, still to come... we'll explain why rats are affecting coral reefs in the indian ocean. england's footballers have been praised for their performance in the world cup, despite losing to croatia in last night's semifinal. there was disappointment, but pride too, as fans praised
9:39 pm
what the young side had achieved in recent weeks. and as our correspondent natalie pirks reports, the prospects for english football are looking brighter. the site without the mayor one. tea rs the site without the mayor one. tears and of regret. but this time, it somehow felt different. in red square today, the english that remained were reflecting on a defeat that still gave them reason to smile. the first semifinal in however long, it is a bit of history. too young for the 1990s, so you can say you were there. england fa ns you can say you were there. england fans have had a summer to remember. a relationship that was at its lowest has been repaired but this is by design. and not by chance. saint george's park, the nationalfootball centre, was opened in 2012 as a home to all of england 28 national
9:40 pm
football teams. two years later, england dni was launched, a blueprint for how england teams should play. there is one thing that saint george's park cannot fix. in this players only make up 33% of the premier league. it goes back to the old problem. this is important. it's a piece of the jigsaw that needs to be resorted, before we see this. as fa ns be resorted, before we see this. as fans saying his name long into the night, gareth southgate returned the affection. he is sensible enough to note the relationship might not a lwa ys note the relationship might not always be this friendly. but as he embraced his wife, he might have allowed himself a moment to reflect upon how he has made the impossible job seem possible again. perhaps even fun. this is outside source live from the bbc newsroom. our lead story is...

president trump is in the uk for a working visit. the prime minister welcomed him along with the first lady. let's take a look at some of the stories. language services. the syrian government has re—ta ken control of the southern city of deraa, where the revolt against president assad began seven years ago. pictures on state tv showed the syrian flag being raised in the main square, after government vehicles accompanied by russian troops entered the area. that's on bbc arabic. archaeologists in mexico have discovered an ancient temple hidden inside a pyramid that had been damaged by an earthquake. the chamber was discovered when scientists used a radar to check for structural damage following last september's 7.1 magnitude quake. that's on bbc mundo. and this clip has been widely watched on our website. 200 kilogrammes of explosives

were used to blow up this partially—built bridge in colombia. authorities decided to destroy it after it collapsed injanuary, killing nine workmen. they say another bridge will be erected in its place. an update on another story we've been covering all week. the death toll in the japan flooding has risen again, with at least 200 people now reported dead. dozens more remain missing. the western prefectures of hiroshima, okoyama and yamaguchi have been worst hit. rupert wingfield—hayes has been to okoyama. he sent this report. so this here is the watanabes' house and i'm going to go inside here and show you just the incredible destruction that this sort of flooding, the water, does, to people's houses. so this is the first
9:43 pm
floor and everything in here was destroyed, because the water went up to above this level. this was completely immersed in water. you can see everything has been destroyed. look here in the kitchen. everything is covered in a thick layer of stinking mud. you can't smell it, but it really stinks in here as well. the electrical system all the appliances, the refrigerator, the oven, the cooker, everything — nothing can be recovered, and it's the same upstairs. so mr and mrs watanabe took refuge up here. mr watanabe told me how he watched as minute by minute the water rose step—by—step up here, until eventually — you can see the tide mark here — this is where the water came to. as the waters rose here in their bedroom they were forced to make another escape, this time out of this window and into a little outside roof.
9:44 pm
it was there that they saw a rescue boat and that's why they survived, because they were able to cry for help and a boat came and rescued them from this roof here outside. otherwise, they say, they would have drowned. of course the real tragedy here isn't the loss of property, it's the loss of life. more than 200 people are now either dead or missing, including three people in this house behind me here. we understand they were elderly. it's a single—storey house. they had nowhere to take refuge. everyone we've spoken to here has told us the same thing — that they've never seen rain like this before. it went on nonstop for three days and when the floods came it overtook this place at incredible speed, and this in a country that probably has the best flood defence warning system in the world. here's the latest update on the 12 boys and their football coach who were rescued
9:45 pm
from a cave in thailand. all week we've been through the mechanics of that remarkable rescue effort today. the thai navy seals involved returned to their airbase just outside bangkok to a heroes' welcome, you can see them with garlands of marigolds around their neck. our correspondent howard johnson posted this from their mission accomplished party for the navy seals on instagram. a thank you banner referencing the name of their team, the wild boars. as well as the thai navy, divers from all over the world were involved, you can read about them in this article on our website. one of the two british divers who initally found the children, has been speaking publicly about his part in this successful mission, he metjon kay. quietly, modestly, with all his
9:46 pm
diving gearjohn volanthen returned to britain. praised by strangers. we were pleased it worked out. but playing down what he'd done. we're not heroes. what we do is very calculating, very calm, it's quite the opposite. we take it one step at a time and hopefully, as we've managed to in this case, we come up with a result. and what a result. it was john who found the young footballers in the caves and then worked with many others to get them out. an extraordinary rescue, the most challenging conditions, a race against time. an international team of military and civilian divers working alongside the thai navy and everybody pulled together, and the results speak for themselves. so we're just very happy that the boys are out and safe. we've got someone who's done
9:47 pm
something so heroic... pride in the north somerset village where john vola nthen is a scout leader. we teach children as part of the scouts and girl guiding movement to think of others before themselves, to think about the world around them, and he's just taken that to the ultimate. there are calls for honours butjohn volanthen says cave rescuing isjust his hobby. you've made everyone very proud. thank you. now it's time to sleep and get back to the dayjob in it. jon kay, bbc news. 1000 people were involved altogether for that operation. to kenya now, where a new deal has been struck with cuba to try and ease staffing shortages in rural health facilities. cuba has what it calls ‘an army in white lab coats‘, by which it means its doctors, this forbes article calls the country's health care expertise ‘its most valuable export. merchuma sent this report on the kenyan—cuban deal.
9:48 pm
the casualties area at the county hospital in eastern kenya. this hospital is positioned between three major roads, including the nairobi mombasa highway and at the percentage of the patient‘s who come in our accident victims. like every other public hospital in kenya, there is a backlog of patients. at the male orthopaedic ward, every bed is occupied. these patients have been waiting for months for surgery. translation: i came here on the 22nd of april. i got into a motorcycle accident. i was told to buy metal implants. i bought them. and i was told to wait for my turn on the list. i am still waiting. we are missing out on a neurosurgeon. we are missing out on an orthapedic surgeon.
9:49 pm
we have tried advertising and we have not been able to recruit. the president has commissioned 100 cuban doctors to work in kenya. each of the 47 counties will get to cuban specialists, depending on the immediate needs. while a lot of kenyans are hopeful that the arrival of cuban doctors in the country will help improve service delivery in the health sector, the doctors union in kenya objects to the employment, saying there are many highly trained doctors who are stilljobless. there are many factors that ail the health sector in kenya. corruption, poor governance, frequent industrial actions and the impact is nothing short of gut wrenching. will the cubans help resuscitate the failing systems ? time will tell. we're going to talk about rats now, because a new study has found that the rodents have an big impact on the health of coral reefs. researchers were working in the chagos islands, an archipelago of about 60 islands in the indian ocean which
9:50 pm
are surrounded by tropical reefs. victoria gill picks up this story. this is a natural laboratory, because historically, some of these islands have been visited by ships which brought rats that invaded these tiny island spaces and started to pray on sea birds, eating their eggs and eating the nestlings. so i learnt that have rats have basically very few to no sea birds and there are some islands that are rent—free. this team could compare and contrast and what they found is essentially that the rats just decimate the sea bird population and the reason that damages coral reefs is because when sea birds go out and forage in these very nutrient rich areas and they come back and they put their droppings all over the island, they basically come back and fertilise the island with his natural fertiliser. and that drifts into this marine environment and into the coral reef and it fertilises the coral reef. so what they found is the algae
9:51 pm
that grows on the coral reef contains some of the nitrogen that is actually in these bird droppings so they can actually trace it back to the birds and say yes, they are fertilising this reef, and then they found that these reefs on these rat—free islands are much healthier. they have biggerfish. they have lots more fish. they are much more in tax ecosystems. now with coral reefs being threatened all around the world by coral bleaching, bike ocean acidification, climate change, this is a very quick solution, the scientists say, to protecting coral reefs in the future. eradicate rats from all of these islands where are these threes. what they are suggesting is for the sake of the survival of these marine echo systems that are so valuable, so precious, delicate, really threatened, we should be wiping out all of the rats. iam not i am not convinced the rats will be happy about this suggestion. donald trump is in the uk.
9:52 pm
he landed a little bit earlier. he then went on to the us ambassadors residence right in the centre of the capital. right now he is finishing dinner with theresa may as we speak. donald trump a big fan of winston churchill. there has been plenty of p°mp churchill. there has been plenty of pomp and ceremony. there has also been a lot of protests. let's have a look. he isa
9:53 pm
he is a good testicle and he is self promoting. he does not believe that any of his policies but on top of that, the way he is per train everything it is making the america set up backward country.” everything it is making the america set up backward country. i think this is against his misogyny and racism but i am against his politics generally. the fact that he is supporting the brexiteers, the fact that he is trying to destabilise the government and is approaching boris. the only changes when he spots the popularity or lack of popularity in what he says. he is a populist, basically. more protest are expected. tomorrow the president will be having tea with the queen. you're watching outside source. bye—bye. hello
9:54 pm
there. i weather pattern is going to fundamentally change in the next week. finally bringing is a prospect of decent balls of rain. the changes we re of decent balls of rain. the changes were brought about by an old hurricane. more about the animal mode. more of the same today. we had some weather and also we had plenty of sunshine across much of england and wales. this is the scene thursday on the beaches st ives. on whales, we had a light to heavy showers form, and those showers were pretty heavy, intense falls of rain. this hurricane, is hurricane chris. staying off the eastern seaboard, but that will bring a change to our weather. for friday, it is a very similar kind of sweater patterns as to what we had on thursday. generally high pressure, but we will see some showers form again. for scotla nd see some showers form again. for scotland and northern ireland, like it has been for the last few days, it has been for the last few days, it will be a cloudy day, a few city spells, and some city spells for england and wales but the afternoon
9:55 pm
we will see showers breaking out. down the western side of england and wales at across art of the midlands. the thing with these heavy showers and thunderstorms, they brink 20—30 mm of rain in the space of hour. that is half a months worth and will bring the risk of some flooding. out in the mid—atlantic this weekend, this is what is left of hurricane chris. it is pushing northwards and when that happens, we start to build areas of high pressure. pressure will be rising across the uk this weekend. and that means we will have a lighter winds. more sunshine, and that combination will bring higher temperatures this weekend. saturday, temperatures this weekend. saturday, temperatures peaked around 29 celsius, but for the north and west, it will be quite cloudy. with the threat of some rain here as well. a similar picture for sunday. the rain heavy at times across the far northwest of scotland during sunday morning before turning lighter later on. those temperatures will continue
9:56 pm
to build and actually on sunday it will become a very hot day. temperatures should reach 31 degrees in the hottest areas, those temperatures rising as well across parts of scotland and northern ireland where we see brighter spells. chris and the story of chris has notches finished their because by monday, the war merrill will be building a high pressure across scandinavia and we start to feel the effects of the atlantic being brought in. we have had a block of high pressure for much of this summer. this kind of pattern. but instead of the high pressure being over us, it has shifted to eastern europe and we had getting betrothed in thejet europe and we had getting betrothed in the jet stream in the uk. that would encourage the air to rise and encourage outbreaks of rain. on monday, the rain could be quite heavy across northwestern area but it stays largely dry towards east winds and temperatures still into the high 20s here on monday, but as the high 20s here on monday, but as the trough really sits over the uk for the rest of the week ahead, it will encourage some heavy thundery
9:57 pm
slow—moving showers which could be localised flooding or we could see hours of low pressure that bring heavy outbreaks of rain our way. the detail really after monday is open toa detail really after monday is open to a lot of uncertainty. but a fundamental change is going to take place in our weather. it is going to turn more settled with finally the prospect of rain which will be welcome news for the gardeners, with the ground baked solid, there is a risk of flooding. temperatures will ease. tonight at ten, president trump comes to the uk for his first visit since taking office, warning that theresa may's approach to brexit is not the right one. band plays. the president arrived at blenheim palace this evening on the first day of a working visit — but not the full state visit once anticipated. outside the palace hundreds of protestors — accusing the president
9:58 pm
of being a racist and a misogynist. but mr trump said earlier he wasn't too bothered. protests, there might be protests, but i believe that the people in the uk, scotland, ireland, i think that those people, they like me a lot, and they agree with me on immigration. and tonight, the president warned that mrs may's brexit plans made a trade deal with america less likely. all of this on the day the government had set
