11:02 am
hundreds of people, who were due to attend a beach festival, is unknown. here you can see a collapsed bridge a sign of the huge forces that battered the city. the death toll is growing rapidly and stands in the hundreds with hundreds more injured. indonesia's disaster agency say thousands of homes had been destroyed. as for the tsunami damage, we have received a number of report as many bodies were found along the shoreline but the numbers are still unknown. with bodies lining the streets, the scale of the clear up operation is enormous. the city's airport has been badly damaged, major roads are closed. relief aid is being moved to the area from the capital, jakarta. indonesia authorities say they tsunami one was issued but lifted half an hour after the quake. it is unclear whether the wave had hit the
11:03 am
coastline by then. jan gelfand is from the international federation of red cross and red crescent charity in the indonesian capital, jakarta. he's been giving me the latest. when you have a situation of 7.7 earthquake, it was followed by hundreds of tremors afterwards and was followed by a tsunami, the devastation we have seen are terrible. people that are in the streets, you have communication infrastructure down, transportation is complicated. the nearest airport is complicated. the nearest airport is between ten and i2 is complicated. the nearest airport is between ten and 12 hours away because the airport, the closest airport, the control tower was damaged. it is quite chaotic on the ground. it is deadly serious. the initial
11:04 am
concern must be for life and for those who may have either died, we have a figure of 380, but the many people whose lives have been affected in terms of injury and loss of shelter, loss of reliable clean water supplies and so on. what kind of operation is now gearing up to try to help them? well, you have the humanitarian world looking at this. we are working with the indonesian red cross who have half a million volunteers. we have mobilised the volu nteers volunteers. we have mobilised the volunteers that are in the area, we have emptied our warehouses, we are bringing in water trucks, we're bringing in water trucks, we're bringing in water trucks, we're bringing in medical teams we're bringing in medical teams we're bringing in medical teams we're bringing in tarpaulins. things that people really need immediately. we
11:05 am
will provide people with social support because you can imagine the trauma people feel. the entire humanitarian community is doing this. the concern is getting there, it is very difficult, communication is not very good. we have teams on the road. it will take a ten or 12 hour drive and we don't know what the road conditions are going to be like. there is a lot of uncertainty which is normal so seen after an event like this. the tremors felt on friday seem to have been less intense than those felt previously yet the damage seems to be pretty widespread across much of the island. yes, but when you have a 7.7 level of earthquake, 27 kilometres off the coast and only ten kilometres deep, you have the chance because the plates can move a lot. this is just
11:06 am
a recipe for a lot of damage. that one was huge, 7.7 earthquake is a huge earthquake. with that low depth it is bound to do a great deal of damage. facebook has reset tens of millions of accounts after discovering its worst ever security breach. the company says that almost 50—million users worldwide were directly affected, but it's not clear whether any profiles were misused, or who was responsible. facebook‘s boss, mark zuckerberg, whose own account was affected, says the breach was "really serious". 0ur north america technology reporter dave lee has more. voiceover: we came here to stay in touch with friends... if you tried to use facebook on friday and found you had been logged out, you may have been one of the 50 million people affected by the security breach. by logging back in, you were produced what is known as a new access token, sort of like changing the locks. you don't, however, need to change your password. all of this is happening because last tuesday,
11:07 am
facebook discovered a massive hacking attack on its network. a flaw in a feature known as "view as" which shows you what other people see when they look at your profile, gave hackers the ability to take full control of accounts. voiceover: we didn't come here for clickbait, spam and data misuse. with this power, they could do anything the real user could, including logging in to third party sites that use facebook‘s system, such as airbnb, tinder and many, many others. facebook said it did not know who was behind the attack, nor what they may have done with the access. the company has informed data regulators in the us and in ireland where its european operations are based. even facebook‘s founder mark zuckerberg was affected by the breach. he told reporters that keeping ahead of hackers was difficult. security is an arms race and we're continuing to improve our defences. this also underscores that there are just constant attacks from people who are trying to take over accounts or steal information from people in our community.
11:08 am
facebook wouldn't say whether its investigation would look at why the bug was missed by its developers. the company also wouldn't comment on whether anyone at facebook would be held accountable for what is another huge security breach is the world's biggest social network. dave lee, bbc news, in san francisco. two british women have been killed in a car crash in oman. the incident took place on the south coast of salalah, close to the border with yemen. a british man was also injured in the crash, and is believed to be in hospital in a stable condition. the identity of the victims is not yet known. the car giant toyota has told the bbc that production at its derbyshire factory would be severely disrupted if britain crashed out of the eu without a deal. it said delays for parts at the border and stops in its assembly line would be expensive, and could have an impact on jobs and investment at the plant in future.
11:09 am
sanchia berg reports. 600 cars roll off the line here every day at toyota's factory near derby. each one built to order. it works because the parts only arrive when they are needed. summoned at a day's notice from suppliers in the uk and europe, put straight onto the production line. there is no wearhouse so if the truck gets stuck the line can stop. hard brexit, delays at the border would magnify that. if we crash out of the eu at the end of march the supply chain will be impacted and we will see production stopped in our factory. he doesn't know how long that disruption would be. hours, days, possibly weeks. that would be expensive for toyota which has just invested a quarter of a billion pounds in this plant to build the new corolla here. it would reduce our competitiveness. sadly i think that would reduce
11:10 am
the number of cars made in the uk and that would costjobs. they are calling for free movement of goods between britain and the eu as the prime minister outlined in her chequers proposal. toyota is not the only car—maker to be worried about the implications of a hard brexit. all major manufacturers have complex supply chains extending in the european union. and while the sector directly employees under 200,000 people it is estimated that close to a million british jobs depend on it. the government said it was determined to ensure that britain remains a competitive location for carmaking, that it had proposed a credible plan to the eu for the future relationship and it looked forward to continuing the negotiations. the business secretary, greg clark, has asked some breaking news now. this is
11:11 am
following a report following a collision in burnley in the early hours of this morning. this has come from the police, a man has died following the collision. it took place, it appears to have taken place, it appears to have taken place before 1:25am this morning. the cart containing —— collided with a lamp post it seems. there was one front seat passenger, a 23—year—old man, he was pronounced dead at the scene. the driver and the back—seat passenger were taken from the vehicle and treated at the royal preston hospital where they are
11:12 am
still being held whilst their injuries are being treated. prior to the collision, the vehicle had stopped, failed to stop, it is requested to stop by the police and was being followed as a result of refusing to stop when the incident happened. the office for police conduct, the former ipcc comm is going to be looking into the circumstances were 23—year—old man has died as a result of injuries sustained in that accident. we don't know the circumstances in which the police pursuit was happening, whether it is a blue light to suit or not. we will bring you more on that as soon as we get it. the business secretary, greg clark, has asked the competition watchdog to review britain's audit industry, which is dominated by four large firms. mr clark said the collapse of the construction giant, carillion, injanuary had exposed weaknesses in the audit process and that it was time to "apply" the lessons learned from it. the conservatives' annual party conference will get under way in birmingham later, exactly six months ahead of the uk's
11:13 am
departure from the european union. ahead of the conference sirjohn major has criticised conservative mps, who he claims routinely attack theresa may. he says those who "taunt" the prime minister over brexit, have no "coherent" plan of their own. theresa may is continuing to stress that her chequers plan is the only one on the table despite some of her own mps calling it a "dead duck". joining me now is our political correspondentjessica parker. but that may be dead but we haven't heard its last quack it seems. boris johnson has announced as canada spoil deal. what kind of pressure is the prime minister ended to accept what appears to be the inevitable, whatever emerges won't be in the chequers plan? theresa may has got a couple of problems. that is pressure on her that she has allied herself with the
11:14 am
chequers deal. it'll be difficult for her to come out and say, actually, i got it wrong and we need an alternative. there are those people who think the idea of a canada spoil deal isn't realistic for a couple of problems, problems on the island border. when you look at the canada deal, it took seven yea rs at the canada deal, it took seven years and we don't have that time. a lot of pressure on theresa may. it is interesting today, heidi allen, who supported remain in the referendum has come out as the latest tory backbencher to say she would support a so—called people's vote or another referendum. she is saying that is because she doesn't think the chequers plan has a chance of getting through parliament. she has been speaking on the today programme. i was prepared to give
11:15 am
chequers and that by minister as long as possible. i'm not surprised the eu would push back. but i think it is the way that the right wing end of my party, sirjohn major clearly articulated last night, they have behaved unacceptably throughout this and have completely tied her hands. it is they who have made chequers dad. that being the case, they have made their position clear, it is the end of the road which is very disappointing and for me, leads to no alternative then we need to go back to the public to decide. brexit appears to dominate every
11:16 am
second of the prime minister's time that this has got her appearance at the conservative party conference. that is made a lot more complicated by what happened in salzburg. theresa may enters this confidence ina theresa may enters this confidence in a difficult position. at a party conference if you are riding high in the polls, it is the time to showcase policies and reach out to the public that she is facing a lot of problems, everybody is waiting to hear what boris johnson of problems, everybody is waiting to hear what borisjohnson belsay of problems, everybody is waiting to hear what boris johnson belsay and whether he will grab headlines and undermine her. because this chequers plan has proved quite unpopular, and according to some mps is unpopular with the tory grassroots, how will that go down when she is faced by activists in birmingham? theresa may has got a tough time ahead, perhaps she hope sissoko better than last year because then her speech, she developed the bad cough. a bit of the set fell behind her. last year's conference was not successful. no
11:17 am
doubt she faces a challenging one this year. with apologies for crossing parties, things can only get better as far as speech preparation can go. the headlines on bbc news... (00v) hundreds of people are killed after a powerful earthquake triggers a tsunami sending huge waves through an indonesian city facebook resets the accounts of more than fifty million users after a major security breach. the car giant toyota says production at its derbyshire factory would be severely disrupted if britain crashed out of the eu without a deal. people with severe allergies have been told they can use their epipens past their normal expiry date, because of a continuing shortage. the medicines regulator said it had agreed to extend the use—by date of some of the devices by four months. 0ur health correspondent dominic hughes has more. the inquest into the death of natasha ednan—laperouse has
11:18 am
highlighted the issues facing people who suffer from severe allergic reactions. in her case, adrenaline injections from a device called an epipen were not enough to save her. but many rely on them for emergency treatment. michelle henry uses them to protect her nine—year—old son who lives with multiple allergies. now a shortage of epipens, the uk's biggest brand, means desperate parents have been left looking for alternatives. it is not good enough and the problem is, the onus is on the parent, not the doctor, not the pharmacist, not the supplier, to deal with the problem. your child, you know the danger your child has and the onus is very much on you to actually physically go round the houses until you get a solution. the department for health and social care is warning that stocks of the adrenaline injector for children have run out and that epipens for children and adults will remain in short supply for the rest of the year.
11:19 am
patients are being advised that some batches can be used for up to four months after the official expiry date. i would certainly recommend to my patients that if they were having a severe reaction and they noticed their epipen was out of date, i would rather that they checked to look, if the liquid inside is clear, it is safe to use even though it is expired. that said, it won't be as effective but it's better than not using anything at all. of course, make sure you call for emergency help straightaway. some patients will be advised to start using alternative injected devices. meanwhile, the government is working with the makers of epipen to resolve the issue. dominic hughes, bbc news. president trump has accepted a demand from us senators for an fbi investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against his supreme court nominee, brett kavanaugh. it follows his appearance before a senate committee on thursday, when he strenuously denied attacking a woman when they were at high school together in the 1980s. chris buckler reports. look at me when i'm talking to you!
11:20 am
you're telling me that my assault doesn't matter! this moment when a senator came face—to—face with victims campaigners may have changed the course of brett kavanaugh's confirmation hearings. ..that you'll let people like that go into the highest court of the land... jeff flake was the key republican vote on the judiciary committee and up to this point, he appeared to support judge kavanaugh's nomination, despite the allegations of sexual assault. do you think that brett kavanaugh is telling the truth? when the committee reconvened, he was absent from his chair, involved in meetings with democrats. when he returned, he would only vote yes if the senators agreed to a delay. this is ripping the country apart and the calls i have been getting, e—mails and texts, it has been rough to see and we haven't had a process, i think, that we can be proud of. the white house says the fbi has now
11:21 am
begun a new background investigation into brett kavanaugh which will look into what they called current credible allegations including the conflicting testimonies given this week by both him and christine blasey ford who has accused him of sexual assault. brett put his hand over my mouth to stop me from yelling. this is what terrified me the most. i have never done this, to her or to anyone. president trump has insisted that the fbi must complete its investigation into his pick for the supreme court within a week. all 51 republican members of the senate support the motion to proceed. president trump has insisted that the fbi must complete its investigation into his pick for the supreme court within a week. but as the last few days have shown, that is a very long time in this city.
11:22 am
chris buckler, bbc news, washington. it is ryder cup weekend. time now for the sporting action. good morning. hi, thank you list of the americas are battling to stay in touch in the ryder cup on the second day. europe have dominated so far this morning. let's get the latest from paris and our man there, john watson. there have been huge crowds that roaring on you. they are still going well? they had indeed. they have that 5—3 lead but they add up in three of their four matches. that leaderboard bathed in blue. it is largely in pa rt bathed in blue. it is largely in part of the performances of rory mcilroy and sergio garcia who were the first out this morning against brooks koepka and tony finau. they are up. rory mcilroy with a superb
11:23 am
put on the eighth. superb stuff from him. hatton is out alongside casey. making his ryder cup return after ten years. putting them on their way. paul casey chipping in with five birdies himself. that is peddling going well against dustin johnson and rickie fowler. how about francesco molinari? johnson and rickie fowler. how about francesco molinari ? he johnson and rickie fowler. how about francesco molinari? he hasn't won a ryder cup match coming in. he is on the brink of winning a third alongside tommy fleetwood. superb stuff from him. very close there. jordan spieth doing his bit alongsidejustin thomas, they are up against ian poulter and jon rahm. spieth anne thomas are up. still a few holes to play. europe will be
11:24 am
delighted with the way things have gone so far, three up in those four matches. that could see further points on the leaderboard for europe. they are 5—3 up, 14.5 points is the important targets going into this afternoon. the 12 singles matches to come on the final day on sunday. i suppose it must be a rearguard action for the usa, if the unthinkable happened and they lost all four of these four balls matches going into the foursomes, you are talking 9—3. considering what happened in 2012 in medinah, it would be an extraordinary comeback in europe where they haven't won since 1990s levered up the signs at the moment of the americans don't have that in them to do that. they are struggling to play the course, they have struggled to keep the ball on the fairway today. it has ended up on the fairway today. it has ended up in the thick rough and it is hard to score low here if you are doing that. the four balls was the format
11:25 am
which they did so well in yesterday, winning 3—1. they are not producing that today. they suffered the clean sweep in the foursomes. you have to say, it is looking good for the united states at the moment. it'll ta ke united states at the moment. it'll take some turnaround for them if they are to get back into this now? thank you very much, john watson. their breezy course at the moment. their breezy course at the moment. the wind seems to be picking up. in the rest of the sport, lewis hamilton dominated final practice ahead of the russian grand prix. he broke because record out in sochi. his championship rival sebastian vettel was half a second off the pace. mercedes have won every russian grand prix sit it started there in 2014. qualifying gets under way at one o'clock. that is all your sports. time for the weather now.
11:26 am
we started today with a real chill in the air, a touch of frost and fog. it had all the makings of a beautiful day here in aberdeen. blue skies overhead for this weather watcher in cornwall. most places are looking fine. they will be good spells of sunshine but that is something different across the far north—west of the country. the best of the sunshine to be found in the south, part of wales, southern england, east anglia. we will keep some sunny spells for the north west of scotland, we will have outbreaks of scotland, we will have outbreaks of rain. these wind speeds are the steady wind speeds we can expect. gusts across the north west of scotla nd gusts across the north west of scotland perhaps up to 55 mph. quite blustery. 12 degrees in stornoway, 18 in london. that is what you would expect that this time of year. this evening, the rain in scotland will
11:27 am
sink further south—east was across the rest of the scotland into northern ireland. the rain sizzling but we will keep a band of cloud. temperatures will not drop as they will elsewhere where we keep clear skies. sunspots will get down to about freezing and it will turn chilly again to the north. here is our band of cloud, a weather front continuing to drift southwards through the first part of tomorrow. behind that, we get into a very chilly north or north—westerly wind which is coming from a long way north. quite a cool feel to the day. 0ur old weather front, the odd spot of drizzle moving. it'll be cloudier tomorrow. for northern ireland and scotla nd tomorrow. for northern ireland and scotland we will see good spells of sunshine and a scattering of showers. those temperatures taking a bit of a tumble, 11—15 at best. as
11:28 am
is that the new working week, we will be stuck between low—pressure cross scandinavia and high pressure to the west. that squeeze will continue to bring a fairly keen northerly breeze so another cool day to come on monday. a lot of dry weather to come and temperatures for a little while will recover. hello, a warm welcome to dateline london. i'm jane hill. it is party conference season here in britain. we're looking back at labour's week, and forward to the conservatives. we also turn our attention stateside to consider the ramifications of the bitter divisions exposed by the row about the president's nominee for the supreme court. with me is stephanie baker, senior writer at bloomberg markets, marc roche, correspondent for france's le point magazine, the british political commentator alex deane and the portuguese writer and academic eunice goes. so, jeremy corbyn told the labour faithful,
11:29 am
meeting in liverpool, that he's ready to rebuild a divided country. he promised to renationalise the railways and create 400,000 jobs in the green economy. delegates also voted to keep all options open when it comes to brexit. political watchers spoke of more confidence and positivity at conference, compared to the year before. will the mood be similar among conservatives, about to meet in birmingham? brexit is the inevitable backdrop, and the former foreign secretary borisjohnson has stuck his oar in again, right before curtain up. we make nationalised railways. some of us are old to remember nationalised. i think renationalising, deep investment in
