and on the front page of the times teenage drinking has declined dramatically in europe. british teenagers were once among the biggest drinkers in europe but are now among the most abstinent. we haven't been talking about that this morning without twitter question. and finally the bbc online and an article outlining the health benefits of eating a mediterranean diet which may help prevent depression, research suggests. mood food. with me is fiona cincotta, senior market analyst at city index. the labour party confidence has dominated the news in the uk for most of the week and todayjeremy corbyn will deliver his big speech. he is moving towards these massive energy green focus which is quite

quite long way away. theresa may needs a strong sales pitch. she has a lot of pressure coming from different areas so slashing the taxes is a good headline grabber and could give her leveraged in the negotiations as well, and she will be working hard to get the headlines away from jeremy corbyn. tax reform has been a winner for the away from jeremy corbyn. tax reform has been a winnerfor the us. a record run to do with the tax reform at the trump administration has introduced. timing is everything and we are seeing that if the feds are about to raise interest rates, and the us economy is firing on all cylinders thanks to the trump takes plans so it is a good move. key leaders for the uk in the news

5:55 am
northern ireland and scotland, with some outbreaks of rain. across much of england and wales we saw a good deal of sunshine, and it's a similar day on wednesday. we keep this piece of cloud over the atlantic, extending into northern ireland and scotland. the heaviest of the rain through wednesday looks likely to be across the western isles and the scottish highlands. the odd spot of rain, some patchy drizzle at times for northern ireland, under cloudy skies, and we'll see a bit more cloud sinking its way across northern england, maybe with the odd spot of rain. but there'll be some sunshine across eastern scotland, north—east england, and that extends all the way down across much of england and wales. now, these are the average wind strength through wednesday afternoon. gusts once again will be higher, but not as strong as we saw on tuesday — 40 mph at times across scotland and northern ireland. in the sunshine, temperatures quite widely up to 20 or 21 celsius, including aberdeenshire and murray, which should see some sunshine through wednesday afternoon. through wednesday evening and overnight into thursday morning, our area of rain across the western isles and the scottish highlands moves its way a little bit further northwards, into 0rkney and shetland, so some clearer skies across eastern scotland. a bit more cloud across the far north of england, but clearer skies further south, where it will be another fairly cool night.

some rural spots getting in the low single figures for a time. so this is the general setup as we go into thursday. we still have the influence of high pressure across central, southern england and wales, these fronts still fringing northern ireland and scotland, and bringing further cloud and outbreaks of rain through thursday. now, very slowly this will be slipping its way south and eastwards through thursday, but running into an area of high pressure, so the rain slowly starts to fizzle out. and ahead of it, we've still got a good deal of sunshine across much of england and wales on thursday, and a warm day here. last day of the warmth, though, for a while, i suspect — temperatures on thursday afternoon across east anglia, south—east england getting up to 22 or 23 celsius. but behind that front, we're going to be in the mid—to—high teens. a sign of something fresher to come as we head towards the end of the week. so, from thursday into friday, here's our front sliding its way south and eastwards. high pressure starts to build
5:57 am
in as we head towards the weekend. so, across northern ireland and scotland, we should see a return of some sunshine, but for all of us by the end of the week we're back into something much fresher. so, after those temperatures getting up to 22 or 23 celsius on thursday, by the time you to friday, things will be starting to turn cooler. and into the weekend, some cool days, some chilly nights, but for most of us it will be generally dry, with some spells of sunshine. that's all from me. bye— bye. good morning. welcome to breakfast, with dan walker and louise minchin. 0ur headlines today: bill cosby spends his first night behind bars after being jailed for up to ten years for sexual assault. jeremy corbyn will promise to tackle "greed is good" capitalism as his makes his leader's speech at the labour conference. more misery for manchester united. paul pogba watches from the stands as his side lose on penalties and are dumped out of the league cup by championship side derby. 0ff life support.
