greater powers for the electoral commission. they are also fiercely critical of the former director of votes live, dominic cummings, who refused to appear before them. his decision to lick their report two days before they plans to publish it is unlikely to improve relations. strong winds could cause travel disruption today as temperatures drop across the uk. two months of dry weather means parched trees are more likely to fall down or shed limbs as they are hit by anticipated gusts of 40—50 miles per hour. ben ando reports. from sunshine by the sea... to ha ilstones from sunshine by the sea... to hailstones in the streets. and lightning overhead. whoa! it may have felt like four seasons in one day for parts of the uk as storms swept in to bring the heatwave to an end. cooler temperatures may have brought some relief to those feeling the heat of the last few weeks but
6:03 am
the heat of the last few weeks but the travellers, they have seen little respite with ongoing problems with air conditioning equipment living the long queues at the channel tunnel and bad weather creating hazardous conditions on the road. in york, storms caused signalling problems on the railways and caused tom jones to cancel a comeback show at the city's racecourse. the organisers said: bad weather overnight is causing delays and cancellations for other flight delays and cancellations for other flight at airports including edinburgh, living and luton. in ahead, forecasters say temperatures will stay lower today at the big issue could be high winds with the of up to 50 miles an hour and that could be more of a problem than usual because dry the trees have branches and trunk that a more brutal and prone to breaking which could in turn lead to more disruption, delay and disgruntlement. an international arrest warrant has been issued for a man who killed his date in a speedboat accident on the river thames

6:05 am
one afternoon a group of men through some bricks at him he the police response was an ill. i don't feel safe. they are not scared of police because they feel they will not get caught. that is what they told you on yourface. like caught. that is what they told you on your face. like other police forces across the country, with nedlands police admit that times it is struggling. the man in charge says sorry. the man of the service is going up because actually local authorities and other services have been reduced to more vulnerable people come into the place and we are absolutely at the point that is not a sustainable opposition for policing anymore and i'm sorry about it but that is the reality of what policing is now. all of the forces across the uk have seen their funding cut since 2010. new figures show the number of frontline police officers in england and wales has reduced to 20,000 over the same period. the government says this force will get millions of extra cash over the next year. and that it
6:06 am
expects that police to investigate every crime properly. but according to the officer who leads the force, that simply is not possible. the charities commission is looking into claims that the joseph rowntree charitable trust gave more than £100,000 to a group linked to a banned terrorist organisation in northern ireland. according to the times, the group, teach na failte, shares offices in belfast with the political wing of the inla, a banned paramilitary group that was responsible for numerous killings. the trust's website says its work is intended to promote the peace process. it's expected that around half the train services run by south western railway will be cancelled today. members of the rmt union are going on strike in a disagreement about the role of guards on trains. there'll be a separate strike over working conditions by station staff at london st pancras international, but eurostar says services will run as normal. there's a huge day ahead for geraint thomas as he bids to become the first
6:07 am
welshman to win the tour de france. the team sky rider is leading the pack by more than two minutes ahead of the final time trial in the south—west of france. if successful, he'll ride into paris tomorrow wearing the famous yellowjersey — the third ever brit to do so. cemlyn daviesjoins us now from the pyrenees. good to see you. tell us, where are you, what stage are we act because i know you will be following the race today. yes, that's right, we will be heading to the area shortly to see today's competitive stage but there has been a growing sense of believe now that geraint thomas can win this yea r‘s now that geraint thomas can win this year's tour de france and that is turning to expectation now after he extended his lead again yesterday. it means he heads into today's stayed with more than a two—minute lead now over second placed tom dumoulin. however, today's stage is
6:08 am
a time trial, a race against the clock, and tom dumoulin is the world time trial champion. so he may fancy his chances of closing the gap between him and geraint thomas. having said that, geraint thomas is the british time trial champion, he also won a time trial stage at the tour de france last year and so the consensus now is that the welshman has done enough and barring any major hiccups, he will be in the yellow jersey going down major hiccups, he will be in the yellowjersey going down that sean tully said in paris tomorrow. there are so much excitement about geraint thomas's achievements and also emit some controversy as team sky has got quite a lot of flak from the spectators there. yes, and chris froome in particular, however we have been speaking to french fans here throughout the weekend who are lending their report for support to thomas, they like him and as a
6:09 am
result of that they have warmed the tea m result of that they have warmed the team sky over the past week or so. the manager of team sky has been quite outspoken over the course of the tour de france, saying that his tea m the tour de france, saying that his team deserves more respect from the french public art certainly from what we have seen, geraint thomas as an individual at least have had the respect and i'm sure there will be chairing the him as he secures the yellow jersey, if of chairing the him as he secures the yellowjersey, if of course he does manage to do that, as we expect, later today. there is always the caveat, you do not want tojinx him just yet but of course we will be chairing if it happens. thank you so much. before chairing. it might have been a bit of a damp squib here in the uk but last night, in less cloudy parts of the world, people gathered to watch the longest lunar eclipse this century. for an hour and a0 minutes, the night sky was home to a striking red blood moon. 0ur correspondent stefan levy takes a look at some of the best pictures. it was a spectacular sight of the
6:10 am
sta rgazers it was a spectacular sight of the sta rgaze rs a cross it was a spectacular sight of the stargazers across the globe. the moon bad night skies with its red glow for one hour and 43 minute as it was totally eclipsed the earth. the display was visible for most of the southern hemisphere at the best views were across eastern europe, east africa, and asia, where the entire eclipse was visible. the moon is passing right through the centre of the earth's shadow so it is the shadow at its widest in the last the longest and the only light from the sunlight can reach it is actually the light that has been filtered through the earthatmosphere we'll just wait goes with dusky red colour. catching a glimpse was hit and miss. cases in the uk due to cloud conditions but the lucky one's managed to see the moon go fully read. the cast for the next star wars film has been revealed with a mixture of veteran stars and new faces set to appear. the late actress carrie fisher will also feature, using previously unseen footage. fisher, who played princess leia in the film series, died suddenly in 2016.

6:12 am
many people are feeling a bit of relief from the weather. this main story, i got rid of mine, says this might be the minister, this is a quote from mike 0'brien who served as energy minister under gordon brown who told the daily telegraph he removed his own smart metre because he barely look at it. on the front page of the daily marach, we reflected some of this today in our reporting of what is expected in the weather with high winds and you may have experienced some of the stalls, the sense that there is a change under way and we know that they are expecting problems possibly with air travel and danger across the roads may be. more on that throughout the programme. the guardian takes a look at issues of climate change, saying that one of the world's leading climate scientist has declared that with the impacts of global warming now playing out in real—time, and i quote that, he says the extreme heatwaves and wildfires are the face of climate change. the photos you are seeing here, of course fires in
6:13 am
reds, potential drought or drop in the uk, floods injapan and lives have been lost in greece and japan. 0n the subject of climate change, the daily mail is patting itself on the daily mail is patting itself on the back, but nonetheless is a success story which is just reviewing where we are with plastic bags. the extraordinary change that has taken place over a period of time. you can see the numbers there, each of us used to use 140 plastic bags a year. the number now according to official figures is 19 according to official figures is 19 a year. all because of the 5p levy and also the way that people have approached this. the daily mail was at the forefront of this. it is a tangible result, and sometimes it is ha rd to tangible result, and sometimes it is hard to quantify those changes but it means something has changed radically. tjallingii the financial times, gary cooper is coming in to talk to us later. he is an american born, newspaper reviewer who will be joining us and donald trump has been
6:14 am
hailing us growth figures, the good news there, but also twitter, if you area news there, but also twitter, if you are a social media user, apparently you are not using it enough. you are not getting enough, you are not being held, your attention is not being held, your attention is not being held, your attention is not being held closely enough by twitter which is affecting its stock price, it dropped nearly 20% yesterday. excuse me, it is 14 past six and you are watching breakfast. the uk faces a "democratic crisis" because of fake news, according to a group of mps. they're calling for a tax on social networks. the heatwave has finally broken, with thunderstorms and torrential downpours sweeping across parts of the uk. here's alina with a look at this morning's weather. ididn't i didn't get to see any of these co re i didn't get to see any of these core that some of the pictures of the rain seemed to be bouncing off the rain seemed to be bouncing off the ground because the ground is so dry.
6:15 am
a big change in the weather overnight, lots of thunderstorms, some parts of the country saw over 60 millimetres of rain. 20 of thunderstorms too, this was newcastle last night and again a similar scene in suffolk and with those we had hail and squalling wind as well. it has introduced something much more fresh. windier today into tomorrow, further showers around. finally seeing low pressure, a front pushing across the country and behind this front is a much more fresh conditions. notice how those isobars are together. and heavy rain this morning across northern ireland, outbreaks of rain for scotla nd ireland, outbreaks of rain for scotland and thundery full—time. for england and wales, showers, or frequent for wales and south—west england, further east, showers more scattered. look at the wind
6:16 am
strength. these are the mean speed. could reach 40 mph and locally 50 mph. 0ur colours are orange and yellow, an idea of the changing temperature. down by ten or 12 degrees in places. 16 to 21 celsius. still looking at 23 or 24 for east anglia. more persistent spell of rental north—west scotland, elsewhere the showers will fade for another band of rain moves in across wales and south—west england later in the night at the fresh night for many, temperatures between 11 and 15. another messy looking at tomorrow, more rain to come, coming into wales and south—west england tomorrow morning and slowly pushing its ways north and east. a better day for northern ireland, mainly dry. scotland not seen that rain until the afternoon but really quite
6:17 am
a wet and windy day across and parts of england and wales. the rain patch isa of england and wales. the rain patch is a further east, again let's draw our attention to the strength of the wind tomorrow. 17— 30 mph. the gust hire and much fresher feel tomorrow. 19- 22 hire and much fresher feel tomorrow. 19— 22 degrees the top temperature. as the go into next week, not looking as hot for the first part of the week. showers around monday through to wednesday and then it turns drier and perhaps the temperatures rise again by the weekend. are you quite pleased that weekend. are you quite pleased that we have got a bit of rain? i was disappointed yesterday because my garden is properly saw about five minutes of rain but we got some this morning. speculator, thanks so much. —— speakto morning. speculator, thanks so much. —— speak to you later. well bring you the
6:18 am
headlines at 6:30. time now for the film review with james king and jane hill. hello and a very warm welcome to the film review on bbc news. to take us through this week's top cinema releases is james king. nice to see you, james. good to see you, too. the summer is upon us. what have you been watching? well, i've been watching action on the streets, as tom cruise saves the world again and mission: impossible — fallout. and there's been action in the air as well, as dracula and his pals go on a monster vacation in hotel transylvania 3. and there's been action in the alps, as i went back 5000 years for the story of the iceman. well, every genre is covered this week. mission: impossible, my goodness, it looks like they've spent an awful lot on this. it does, get, this is number six.
6:19 am
the first one way back in 1996, unbelievably. tom cruise, of course, is back as ethan hunt — the imf special agent. this time he's tracking down some missing weapons—grade plutonium, helped of course by his usual cohorts. so, ving rhames is back, simon pegg is back, rebecca ferguson — who was in the previous film — is back for this one. there is a new boy — henry cavill. we know him as superman in the movies. yes. he's playing a cia agent who's watching over every move that ethan hunt makes. of course, it is action—packed. they say that the traffic in paris is very bad. that's not going to stop tom cruise though, is it? let's have a look. do you copy? we copy, go. change of plans. i'm blown. need a distraction. we're on our way. sirens. honking.
6:20 am
sirens. and that sums up the film quite well, doesn't it? pretty much. that, for two hours. that's basically it. i love it, though. very, very slick, isn't it? i thought it was just brilliant. and, you know, tom cruise has been doing this for a long time. it's over 35 years he has been acting now, leading man. and just the energy of the guy and the dynamism of the guy is second to none. itjust constantly surprises me. and i think that there's that balance, there is that balance that
6:21 am
all summer blockbusters should have, the best ones should have, which is — on the one hand it does feel realistic at times. there's stuff in here about terrorism, there's stuff in here about rogue fanatics that feels like it's plucked from the newspapers, from the headlines. but then, on the other hand, it is also completely ridiculous. yes. and those action scenes like that one, there was one in the helicopter, there was the skydiving scene, they are over the top, and brilliant and fantastical and it is the balance right between those two things. and yes, some of it is quite beautiful. yeah. the production design is so stylish. i have never seen a fight in a men's urinal look quite so stylish. i mean, you've got to tell it like it is. yeah, that's a special moment, isn't it? i think a lot of that is down... it wasn't your wide by the end of it, lots of blood, but... christopher mcquarrie is the writer and director of this. he also did the previous one as well. he has worked with tom cruise many
6:22 am
times on many films. he is really like a mentor to tom cruise. they work together really well. so tom crusie is star and producers and mcquarrie is writer and director and i think this is a great partnership, they produce a lot of great films to and it really helped this film that it is just one writer behind it with one clear vision. it is not muddied by a whole team of writers. yes, that shows. and also, of course, it is not muddied by a lot of fan expectation and fanboys hype and buzz. that is all going on in the marvel world in the comic book world, but actually the mission: impossible films relatively speaking, just kind of come out without a lot of fuss, without a lot of hype and yet they consistently deliver the goods. it is the summer blockbuster, and that is official, isn't it? yeah, and i think it is one of the best mission: impossible films. well, there is a recommendation for the summer. cartoon? yes, hotel transylvania three. three! so, dracula is back, voiced by adam sandler. this time he's taking his friends on holiday, on a holiday cruise.
6:23 am
so, that is the invisible man and frankenstein's monster and the mummy in all these ghoulies, fiendish friends. of course, they're always being followed around by their arch nemesis, mr van helsing, not too far away. and you know what, i thought i would watch this with the sound of braham stoker spinning in his grave. accompanying every scene. but it actually better than i expected. it is certainly full of energy, hyperactive, some might say. but it's not like a pixar movie. it does not have that kind of sleek feel about it, but it does have a sort of hanna—barbera craziness about it. so, even though it's nonsense, really, you are not bored watching it because it is so colourful and there is so much going on and the music is relentless. so, i don't think it is a classic... relentless and high—energy, i am feeling like it... but it keeps you going, you know? the worst thing would be is if you feel bored watching this, but actually because it is so fast—paced boredom is one thing you don't feel. 0k.
6:24 am
i think it is fluff and it is not as good as the incredibles 2 but it is not bad. all right, 0k, and iceman. i haven't had a chance to see it but i am intrigued by this. right, you might remember back in the early 90s there was a body discovered in the alps in austria. that actually people initially thought was a hiker or a mountaineer, but it turned out to be the body of a hunter from over 5000 years ago, being preserved in the ice — it's now in a museum inordinately. but this movie is, it really the back story of how he got there, what his life story is presumed to be. a lot of it is dramatic licence. and it is all told in a roman era outline language. there are no subtitles though. the director said "i don't think you're going to need subtitles, this is a universal story," actually it is true. i could understand what was going on. essentially what it is is a revenge story. so it's kind of like taken with liam neeson, but in the alps with beers and spears. let's have a look and get a flavour of it. yeah. shouting. i mean, is this a really
6:25 am
tough watch in terms of — this is all about physical endurance, cold? yes, it's gutsy. it's definitely gutsy. and i actually say the worst thing about it is that, weirdly, it does feel quite familiar. it's very much like a hollywood revenge movie, albeit in a very different setting with a different language. so, although there is a novelty factor to it, actually the story plays out quite conventionally. but it is certainly a curiosity. whether it is must—see, though, i don't know, but it's certainly a curiosity. intriguing, i think. yeah. 0k, what have you chosen as the best out this week? first reformed, so this is from writer—director paul schrader. it is about a priest in a small town in upstate new york who is going through a crisis,
6:26 am
many crises really, spiritual crises, personal crisis, and in a way it is paul schrader on familiar ground because — probably he most famously wrote taxi driver and has written and directed many films. 0ften deals with questions of faith and a session and guilt. and it is all there in first reformed. it is a brilliant performance from ethan hawke, we tend to think of as a bit more wide—eyed and energetic in a lot of his performances. he is a broken man in this. he is at the end of his tether. he is desperate. but it is a really, talk about that with iceman, this is a really gutsy film that has weight, and has depth, it has some stunning visual moments, just really full—blooded, you know. and at this time of year when it is the season for blockbusters, if you want to see something that actually has some real guts to it, then i would recommend this. 0k. all right, first reformed. and dvd — out on dvd this week is that extraordinary isle of dogs. i mean, visually this isjust something, isn't it?
6:27 am
it's digital download at the moment, so that is the way to watch at the moment. dvd is in a couple weeks. yes, this is wes anderson's animation about humans and their pets and the bonds between them. also of course his love letter to ja pa n. japanese directors. it really is. that actually has caused a bit of about whether this white guy from texas should be making that movie, but it is from the heart. with his usual eccentric humour, with his usual style, with his usual voice talent. jeff goldblum, bill murray, tilda swinton. i actually found it really moving. i don't think it is going to convert people who don't like his films. they are quite mannered films. but actually, that bond between humans and their pets, it is actually described rather touchingly in this phone. i think you're right. british people love a story about... exactly, yes. about their animals and the attention to detail in this is just teriffic. it looks amazing, absolutely amazing, really. i don't even think that it's an animation necessarily for children. i think it's probably and more adults. yes, absolutely agree. james, lovely to see you. you too, cheers. see you next week.
6:28 am
thank you very much indeed. and that is it from both of us. we will see you same time next week. happy cinema going, bye—bye. fa ilte hello, this is breakfast with charlie stayt and naga munchetty. good morning. here's a summary of today's main stories from bbc news: voters are being systematically manipulated by the spread of fake news, according to a group of mps. a leaked report from the commons media select committee warns the uk is facing a democratic crisis and is urging tighter regulation of social media networks. many will welcome some cooler weather today, but strong winds could cause travel disruption as temperatures drop across the uk. rain will sweep across most of the country but two months of sunshine and dry weather means that some parched trees are at risk of falling down when hit by anticipated gusts of 40 to 50 miles per hour. an international arrest warrant has been issued for a man who killed a woman in a speedboat accident on the river thames in london in 2015. jack shepherd, who has been on the run since may, was found guilty of the manslaughter
6:29 am
of charlotte brown, and sentenced to six years in prison at the old bailey yesterday. we'll be speaking to charlotte's mum and sister atjust after 9:00 this morning. a 24—year—old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder and sexual activity with a child following the death of a 13—year—old girl. lucy mchugh‘s body was found in woodland in southampton on thursday, after she was reported missing. the man remains in custody. the chief constable of england's second largest police force has admitted it sometimes provides a poor service that fails to meet public expectations. dave thompson said budget cuts had left west midlands police at a point where it was not sustainable to tackle everything. the home office said every crime and allegation should be investigated. the charities commission is looking into claims that the joseph rowntree charitable trust gave more than £100,000 to a group linked to a banned terrorist organisation in northern ireland. according to the times, the group, teach na failte, shares offices in belfast
6:30 am
with the political wing of the inla, a banned paramilitary group that was responsible for numerous killings. the trust's website says its work is intended to promote the peace process. it's expected that around half the train services run by south western railway will be cancelled today. members of the rmt union are going on strike in a disagreement about the role of guards on trains. there'll be a separate strike over working conditions by station staff at london st pancras international, but eurostar says services will run as normal. there's a huge day ahead for geraint thomas as he bids to become the first welshman to win the tour de france. —— to win the tour de france. the team sky rider is leading the pack by more than two minutes ahead of the final time trial in the south—west of france. if successful, he'll ride into paris tomorrow wearing the famous yellow jersey — the third ever brit to do so. the first welshman to do so. more on
6:31 am
that in sport in just a few minutes. last night, millions of people witnessed the longest lunar eclipse this century as the moon passed through earth's shadow and turned a striking shade of red, or ruddy brown, for one hour and 43 minutes. that depended on week you were in the world as to how it looked. not so good in the uk. visibility was limited in the uk because of cloud, but the so—called blood moon was visible from europe, the middle east, africa, australia, most of asia and south america. the cast for the next star wars film has been revealed with a mixture of veteran stars and new faces set to appear. the late actress carrie fisher will also feature, using previously unseen footage. fisher, who played princess leia in the film series, died suddenly in 2016. veterans mark hamill, who plays luke skywalker, and anthony daniels, who plays c—3p0, have also been confirmed. time now is coming up to 6:34. we
6:32 am
spoke about geraint thomas's charge, he is holding onto the lead in the two front in the first welshman to write in. i do feelwe two front in the first welshman to write in. i do feel we are on the verge of history, it is very exciting, not only did his bit —— did he protect his lead, he extended it is it would be unusual to lose a two—minute lead. he is great in a time trial, there are some big challenges going out first and he will go at last, being the leader, and dimmable node —— challengers. at it is there for him to lose. —— and then he will go. when he starts the time trial he will know what he has to get? so unless something goes badly wrong lucky hit the barrier or whatever, has a problem with his bike, he should become the first welshman to win the tour to france. —— tourde welshman to win the tour to france. —— tour de france. he has a
6:33 am
two—minute plus lead so he just needs to make sure he doesn't lose it. you may lose a minute off the lead but it wouldn't matter. that is the situation as it is. so geraint thomas is within touching distance of becoming the first welshman to win the tour de france. he has extended his lead over tom dumoulin to 2 minutes and 5 seconds, with just today's time trial to get through. drew savage reports. 0ne one day more, today's time trial is the last area to geraint thomas riding into paris to take his place on the biggest podium of all. he began yesterday with mountains on his mind. 0n the start line in lourdes, welsh cycling fans were hoping their man's time had finally come. thomas and team sky weren't expecting an easy ride, and they didn't get one on the final day in the pyrenees. he does have the strongest team in the race, including chris froome, but eventually, their numbers dwindled and, as fourth—placed primoz roglic attacked, froome fell behind, leaving thomas potentially exposed without his last remaining ally. the yellow jersey under threat but the welshman held firm. his rivals couldn't break him. roglic tried again on the way down
6:34 am
and this time, made it stick. froome had recovered and led the chase on thomas's behalf, ensuring roglic couldn't threaten the overall lead, although he did win the stage to take third place overall from froome. but the four—times champion had done his bit for thomas, setting up the man in yellow to sprint for six bonus seconds, not just defended his lead but extending it. congratulations well earned. hold on to the saddle. 20 past three this afternoon, fingers crossed for mr thomas. now priorities have changed for the 4—time olympic champion laura kenny. she is, however, ready to compete on the track again at the european championships in glasgow. since laura and her now husband jason kenny won golds in rio two years ago, they've welcomed baby albert into the world. he's now one years old, and laura's back in the gb team in the velodrome. i still really, really care about cycling and always will, like, it has been my life to such a long time
6:35 am
but all of a sudden i don't think about, you know, everything being perfect. i'm thinking about going home because i want to with albee and when i get on my bike and i am finding it hard i do thinkjust think a proud albee would be a view if you can get through this effort and so it does put a completely different spin on it and i guess one that i never thought would happen in a way. sebastian vettel was fastest in second practice ahead of qualifying today for the hungarian grand prix. the ferrari driver wentjust quicker than max verstappen's red bull. lewis hamilton, who has a championship lead of 17 points over vettel, was three quarters of a second off the pace at the hungaroring. meanwhile, overnight, it's been announced that the force india team, based near silverstone, have been placed into administration. the team believe new investment is imminent but that they're also facing a critical period in their history. britain's 0lympic bronze medallist vicky holland has won the edmonton leg of the world triathlon series, for her second win of 2018. it was an imperious performance from holland, who led out of the water and the bike before breaking clear of a number of athletes on the run and adding

to her win in the city in 2015. a trio of british athletes followed her in third, fourth and fifth, so well done too to georgia taylor—brown, jess learmonth and jodie stimpson. hull kr held off a second—half fightback from rivals hull fc as they hung on to win 20—16 in the super league. rovers were 16 points up at half—time, thanks largely to two tries from craig hall. hull levelled in the second half but this penalty from danny tickle sealed the derby win. elsewhere, there were victories for huddersfield, salford and wigan. there's a big fight at o2 arena tonight with britain's dillian whyte up againstjoshua parker. a warning that there is some flash photography coming up. both fighters need to prove a point after they were beaten by anthonyjoshua, the only defeat in both their careers. new zealander parker is looking to re—establish himself after losing tojoshua in march, while whyte has won seven fights in a row and is nearing a title shot. it's a very risky, it's a dangerous
6:37 am
fight, and i can say he is coming to bring it on people bring it and hope that he does he said he is going to come and punters that the others are we will see him go down he is going tojump off at we will see him go down he is going to jump off at some point you know i don't know first—round third round me and him is going to trade lead, trades on syria's lead at some point. i'm going to break him down, i don't wa nt i'm going to break him down, i don't want to catch him flushing, i don't wa nt want to catch him flushing, i don't want to catch him flushing, i don't want to take a lot of punches that some limit my opponent has been talking is a lot of smack and i think sometimes smack talk is a sign of doubt. also, it is a sign of trying to convince himself and convince others that he is ready for this big challenge. we will have a report on bills and women's boxing later on, now 54% of those in boxing classes are female. haven't you been in the ring with...? indeed. and it didn't turn up brilliantly for you? well, i was wearing padding.

wolves goalkeeper carl ikeme has announced his retirement from football. the 32—year—old is in remission after a year—long battle with leukaemia. the nigeria keeper has been at wolves since he was 14, making more than 200 appearances for the club. and finally, even a rain delay couldn't dampen spirits at the women's hockey world cup yesterday. the coaches for the netherlands and china enjoying a friendly game of rock, paper, scissors whilst torrential rain and lightening caused play to be suspended. that game seemed to be a rehearsalfor the match, with the dutch cruising to a 7—1 win over the chinese. in the other match in pool a, italy scored with just five seconds to go to beat south korea. wayne rooney has hit the back of the net in washington, but not the one he wants to. he's been having a game of tennis with andy murray, at the far end of the court. murray is there ahead of his latest tournament, recovering from a year—long hip problem, while the bearded rooney is now based there with dc united. to be fair, they soon put down the tennis racquets and opted for some foot tennis. look at those skills from andy
6:39 am
murray! murray uses this a lot in training and look at his skills. rooney getting a bit of help there. game, set, and match to murray while rooney still awaits his goal at his new club. what do you have for us? we have sailing! favourite sailing event, it involves ordinary people to the water. female skippers as well which isa water. female skippers as well which is a big change. female skippers have taken first and second place in the clipper round the world yacht race, a first in team ocean racing. ian haslam is in liverpool's albert dock for us this morning ahead of the final sprint up the river mersey this morning. this has been a great event, hasn't it? warning. —— good morning. fantastic race, welcomed the liverpool what i am told in a few hours timejust 100,000 liverpool what i am told in a few hours time just 100,000 people will be lining the albert dock to welcome
6:40 am
these competitors home. 0ver be lining the albert dock to welcome these competitors home. over 700 people have taken part in the race over its eighth legs and 13 races within that. many of them are amateurs, the only professionals have been the skippers themselves. i said there will be huge crowds but it is obviously early, not one person here apart from this lady he was one of the competitors. she took pa rt was one of the competitors. she took part in earlier legs and is a member of the winning team. kelly, thank you forjoining us. we said before this is for amateurs largely. tell us this is for amateurs largely. tell us what you do for a dayjob. this is for amateurs largely. tell us what you do for a day job. i'm a consultant, working in london, i come up here to lovely sunny liverpool to see the come in. we have never done any sailing before this race, how did you get involved? i have never done any and i wanted to do i have never done any and i wanted todoa i have never done any and i wanted to do a challenge and do some indifferent are not many people do and it has been a fantastic experience and i have loved it. there are definitely highs and lows but a wonderful experience. let's reduced statistics, 40,000 nautical miles these crews have done, over 11
6:41 am
months, people from 41 different countries are bored 11 yachts. all of the yacht are the same, so it sounds really gruelling so what is it like to take part because obviously you are in cramped conditions. very cramped, about 12 bonds that we use on a regular basis and we all share them. —— bunks. the galley, the kitchen, is small, so living life on board is one of the skills you have to learn and get used to. but it is a great experience and i have learned so much, loved so much, highs and lows that come with every challenge but you wouldn't want anything else in a challenge. hot bunking, i believe. it is. sounds odd. so the australian, the first is woman racer to win, tell us what an achievement it is. amazing experience for her and being part of a it is. amazing experience for her and being part ofa race and being the first woman to sail around the world is incredible for her. she has worked so hard, as have all of the skippers, but to be the accolades of
6:42 am
the first female is great for her and she deserves it, she has worked so and she deserves it, she has worked so hard, this is the second race she has done and i am so proud to be pa rt of has done and i am so proud to be part of herteam. has done and i am so proud to be part of her team. the youngest british skipper, nikki henderson, in second place over all, a tremendous achievement for her. amazing, amazing accolades for women in sport to have two females in first and second for the around the world yacht race and nikki henderson is 25 and has so much to do and we wish you good luck and it is fantastic for women's sport. they give are joining us, amazing what they have gone through over the last 11 months and we were moaning about running before and so let's go this year before and so let's go this year before we go because this is the river mersey and the yachts themselves are just beyond the horizon, we cannot see them at the moment but from 9am, there will be racing along the river mersey in a sprint finish and as i say it lining these stocks, albert tok, 100,000 people should be quite an occasion, we will be here through the morning, join us if you can. stay dry, thank
6:43 am
you. getting a sense of some of the weather change that is upon us, the storms and problems that might ring. here's alina with a look at this morning's weather. a real change overnight. we have lost the heat and humidity, lots of thunderstorms around and with those came wind, heavy rain, parts of lincolnshire saw 68 millimetres over three inches. it has really heralded the change from that heat and humidity into something much more fresh and much windier as well. strong wind around through the weekend, you will notice the drop in temperature and further showers, if not longer spells of rain. here is the bigger picture, low pressure in charge, fronts pushing eastwards and as they clear away that is when you see the fresh air geek in the. further slump thunderstorms this morning, particularly for south—east england and scotland too. for
6:44 am
northern ireland, pushing its way to scotland. for england and wales it isa scotland. for england and wales it is a sunny spells and showers. thought it might be a good idea to look at the strength of the wind. these are the mean speeds, but when gust could get up to 40 kilometres per hour —— 40 miles. notice how the colours have changed, from orange and red to orange and yellow. you will notice that drop in temperature, ten or 12 degrees. 17— 20 to the top temperature is. there will be a few showers overnight, tending to fade but some rain continuing for north—west scotland and another spell moves into wales and another spell moves into wales and south—west england into the night. for most it is a should be a slightly more comfortable night, 11— 16 celsius. sunday, more rain, potentially looks like a better day for northern ireland. some outbreaks
6:45 am
of rain across large swathe of england and wales tomorrow, particularly for wales, south—west england, slowly pushing eastwards. eventually that rain will arrive here and behind that it is sunny spells and showers. let's talk about the strength of the wind because these are the mean speeds, 30 mph for some southern coast and the gusts higher. quite a wet day. richer wires, 17— 22 celsius. looking ahead to next week. —— temperatures. some showers around through monday and wednesday, it won't he at nearly as hot as what we have seen recently. later in the week it will become drier and those temperatures might start to rise again. thank you very much. we'll be back with the headlines at seven. now it's time for click. the eight planets of our solar
6:46 am
system. and don't they look amazing! what we want to show you hear is how good computer effects have now come. as the cameras move about, your cheeks and background stay in their positions. here we are in the
6:47 am
virtual studio and the graphics replaces anything that is green with a background. in the slower the cameras are so can draw it into the right and will, that why they have a set of reflective tracking balls onto wooden. it also means that i can ta ke wooden. it also means that i can take my own set of tracking balls and turn this into a virtual hand—held camera that i can fly through the sea. there is mercury and venus, earth, mars, jupiter, saturn and there is uranus and neptune. here is the thing. just as we are getting used to having this much fun, at the top end of the movie industry, they are getting ready for something even more incredible. here is marked in los angeles. the next leap in cinematic
6:48 am
technology could be upon us. called intel studios, this is the first timea intel studios, this is the first time a crew has been allowed to catch a glimpse behind the scenes of the state—of—the—art equipment. this spaceis the state—of—the—art equipment. this space is designed to film 360 degrees. diego has worked on the visual effects for movies like gravity and warhorse. now he is heading off this operation. so this is your volumetric space. it is pretty big. is the largest currently in the world. is currently focusing on large—scale in the world. is currently focusing on la rge—scale capture in the world. is currently focusing on large—scale capture and it is a unique space that we have a at dedicated for filmmaking. kelly take a look? —— can we take a look. that isa a look? —— can we take a look. that is a lot of green. a lot of green,
6:49 am
lot of space and a lot of cameras. currently we have more than 100 cameras, it changes with production. 0ur cameras, it changes with production. our goal is, how do you have enough sensors to capture the entire information? as you can see around, it isa information? as you can see around, it is a variation that enables you to capture every bit of information from any direction. in this space, a scene could it performed once, but on all those cameras surrounding the actors, so every angle is covered. the individual shots are pumped by a cable to dedicated servers which then process the images into a point cloud. appoint cloud is a 3—d representation of the entire studio. the action can be watched from any angle. 0nce the action can be watched from any angle. once the decisions have been made about where to position the camera, it is cleaner using the fx and the scene is complete. this was
6:50 am
attempted several times but this as it was made from shops caption on the 15th of attempt. you can have virtual sets around that come but the key thing is they you can keep a live performance and you can keep that truly captured the actors. 0nce you have digital information, when you have digital information, when you have digital information, when you have generated this data you can really walk in cyberspace on a virtual space or whatever comes out and shoot the entire scene again. the filming process or generate a massive amount of data, all of which is processed and stitched together on—site. in total, — — peta bytes. because the studio ten separates the
6:51 am
crew, it is similar to directing in a modern news studio. do you want to get inside? no motion capture thinks it is you and your wardrobe that will capture the performance. so this is my opportunity to try out volumetric studio. i am used to working with one or a couple of cameras, it will be a different working with over 100 of them. then we will be able to capture from every single conceivable angle me attempting to get this fall into that. —— this ball into that hoop. let's try that again. stunned the tea m let's try that again. stunned the team as virtual backgrounds to create a seamless shot made from 100 individual camera captures. and the
6:52 am
crowd goes wild! greeting the shock isn't quick. decided about 150 hours to make. —— this one took. isn't quick. decided about 150 hours to make. -- this one took. as we look at filmmaking, we want to create that transition, how do you immerse into this world, into this experience but with real actors and performers? the tour de france is coming to end this week. the monumental 2351, the tour de france is coming to end this week. the monumental2351, to raise is now 115 years old. fans love its epic proportions and its gruelling pace, but this year they may also be able to enjoy lots and
6:53 am
lots of lovely data. because analytics and machine learning are coming to one of the oldest sporting competitions in the world. kat hawkins went to find out how. this yea r‘s hawkins went to find out how. this year's tour de france is taking place in the same beautiful mountains as always. but there is a big difference, technology is taking —— playing more of a role. cycling is becoming increasingly data driven and for good reason. masses of data can be collected and in the sport of fine margins, those insights are the key to energy efficiency, strategy and gains. we look at many things, heart rate, data and the maximum powers and the altitude and elevation gain we see how the riders are building and leveraged to build it to be better and stronger. but
6:54 am
how is the data collected and transmitted? how is the data collected and transmitted ? that how is the data collected and transmitted? that is where these little devices come in. it may not look like much, but this device is on the back of every bike riding this year, it has been revolutionary. defences on the bike send real—time location data to a nearby vehicle which then means to a following helicopter. is then sent to the data truck for real—time analytics. and this is where the magic happens. from bikes, motorbikes, to, to hear. this is where all the data is being stored. the truckies were data is analysed, enriched and visualised for broadcasters and ten. there is even a enough data for machine learning algorithms to get to work. the depths reduced from simply a gps device is staggering. contextual data such as 3—d maps, whether in gradient and writer information is added to bring the data to life. now on bbc news,
6:55 am
it's time for click. this week, the green dome. deep blue sea. and that yellow jersey. conceptual data such as 3—d maps, weather, gradients and right information is also added to bring the data to live. we don't get any heart rate or power data, but we get location that is absolutely crucial because we can make decisions at quicker. ok, so we are in the race.
6:56 am
this is happening, this is live. what are we saying to our riders? so, come on, you have got 250 more metres. round the next corner here, it's a hairpin. you can't see but it flattens off. you will have drinks in 400 metres, so you will get to cool down. have drinks and go to the finish. good luck. i can see instantly that the psychological impact of that is huge, but how do the cyclists themselves feel about having data in their sport? having everything measured and tracked can have its downside. a lot of teams are trying to keep it secret because when you are racing to win the tour de france you don't really wa nt to win the tour de france you don't really want to give your competitors that advantage. people are saying it is turning into f1, robot talking to robots. what you say? it is more than that. from datacentre to
6:57 am
progress, there is 20 kilometres to 90, progress, there is 20 kilometres to go, 20, to wind speed, the riders are coming up. —— and a kilometre. that is it for the shortcuts of click this week. the full—length version is up on the i play out for you to watch right now. don't forget, you can follow us on twitter and on facebook as well, where you'll find loads of extra tech news and behind—the—scenes photos through the week. thanks for watching, and we'll see you soon. good morning. welcome to breakfast with naga munchetty and charlie stayt. 0ur headlines today: voters are being manipulated by fake news, according to a group of mps. they're calling for a tax on social media networks. after more than 50 days of heat, now comes the hail as storms cause disruption across the uk. good morning. the heat and humidity has left us with a bang overnight. lots of thunderstorms and, as they clear through this morning, a fresher and windy weekend with some more rain around. i will have all the details about 15 minutes. 0n the verge of history
