11:30 pm
is hurricane what's next, this is hurricane michael moving from the usa on friday and through the weekend getting incorporated in a regular area of low pressure and moving to the uk going into monday. this isn't going to be a big deal, not as big a deal as callan will be for some, but what's left of michael will enhance some of this rain. this is a long way off still but it might not look like this, but it will enhance some of the rain coming into northern ireland and scotland on monday. we'll keep you updated on that. were you see some sunshine, temperatures are still into the mid—teens. deeper into next week, notice we see these areas of low pressure passing to the north—west so north and west of the uk closer to low pressure, but in the south and east, closer to high pressure and that brings a range of weather next week across the country. the closer you are too low pressure, northern and western parts of the uk, you're most likely to see spells of wind and rain but not all the time and occasionally the rain will move further east, by the high
11:31 pm
pressure killing it off, so not too much rain in the south and east. through the week, temperatures close to average with a prevailing south south—westerly wind. not very cold, but not as warm as it has been at times this week. hello. this is bbc news. we will be looking at tomorrow morning's papers ina looking at tomorrow morning's papers in a moment with david wooding and jessica elgot. first the headlines. senior members of the cabinet have met the prime minister to discuss progress in the brexit talks ahead ofa progress in the brexit talks ahead of a critical eu summit next week. the bbc understands several ministers expressed concern about potential komru miah is as with brussels. two astronauts have escaped unharmed after theirjamal khashoggi spacecraft was forced to make an emergency high—speed landing in kazakhstan shortly after launch. the rocket malfunctioned on its way to the international space station. the work and pensions secretary, esther mcvey, admitted some will be
11:32 pm
worse off under the new benefits system, universal credit. but says the scheme encourages people into employment. the saudi ambassador to the uk has said he is concerned about the missing saudi journalist jamal khashoggi, but can't comment on his disappearance. jamal khashoggi, a critic of the government, hasn't been seen for more than a week will stop a transgender prisoner who sexually assaulted two inmates at a women's jailand assaulted two inmates at a women's jail and had previously wrecked two other women has been given a life sentence. karen white, who its transition, was described as a predator who is a danger to women and children —— transitioning. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are david wooding, the political editor of the sun on sunday, and jessica elgot, political correspondent at the guardian.
11:33 pm
many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the daily telegraph carries a picture of princess eugenie and jack brooksbank in windsor — ahead of this weekend's royal wedding. they also report philip hammond plans to scrap a promised income tax cut to pay for a climbdown on universal credit, however, according to the daily express, hopes of an income tax cut for millions of households were dramatically boosted after a treasury minister signalled that keeping taxes down will be a top budget priority. the i has conservative mps threatening to withdraw support for government's flagship benefits reform saying backbenchers are furious after the work and pensions secretary esther mcvey admitted that some universal credit claimants will be worse off. the daily mail says theresa may faces uproar over plans to give judges pay rises of nearly £60,000 a year — an increase of more than £1,100 a week. according to the guardian, a kent motorway is undergoing closures as work begins on turning
11:34 pm
it into a potential lorry park to deal with the possible impact of a no—deal brexit. the financial times says global stock markets are heading for their worst week in six months as investors, worried by rising interest rates, sold equities worldwide, with president trump blaming an "out of control" us federal reserve for the downturn. and the metro reports that a transgender prisoner, who was born a man, has beenjailed for life for sexually abusing two women at a female prison and for two earlier rapes. let us start with the telegraph. and, of course, the budget not far away. they have a story suggesting that actually tax cuts, which have
11:35 pm
been promised, this is the rise in the personal allowance, will be dropped to fund welfare. that story we are hearing about there, the unhappiness about universal credit. is it true? a government to break its election promises, who would have thought it? it looks like with the budget coming up that one of the ideas being mooted is that the government will drop the players to reach the threshold at which people start paying tax. they promised to raise that from 11,852 2500, that will be shelved in order to get the gover out of this pickle of universal credit, where people are losing up to £2400 per year because of the changeover to the single benefit. iain duncan smith is calling for the 2 billion that the previous chancellor george osborne cup on the system to be paid back ian, otherwise it could become a big hot potato for the governor —— cut
11:36 pm
from the system. theresa may saying she will help the people just about managing, the people on the breadline. that is what is so toxic about this. theresa may stanton says austerity is coming to an end. and yet this idea that £200 per month could be lost for some people. and her work and pensions secretary, esther mcvey, comes out and says we have made tough decisions and some people will be worse. that has not been the downing street line up until now. it makes you wonder whether they might give some gardeners. there is a lot of philip hammond has on his balance sheets. whether it is the 20 billion from the nhs. now who will pay this extra 2 billion cut by george osborne from universal credit? it is very hard to
11:37 pm
see how he could swear that without having some tax rises. then again, we may end up, i think, with quite a slimmer budget, a barebones thing to carry us slimmer budget, a barebones thing to carry us through, because we really are in an unpredictable economic situation when it comes to brexit. it is difficult for the chancellor to prepare something that doesn't ta ke to prepare something that doesn't take the next six months into account. is worried about brexit. is one of the most passionate voices, he was for the remains that mickey is. presumably he wants to keep some wriggle room to deal with that. we have this other treasury minister talking to the daily express saying they will cut taxes. at the same time, philip allott has been saying privately, the chancellor, that he is being arm twisted into matching labour's promises to end austerity and make life a bit easier for everybody, which theresa may clearly wa nts to everybody, which theresa may clearly wants to do. he is saying i am a fiscal chancellor, we cannot cut, we
11:38 pm
have to tighten our belts. a difficult juggling have to tighten our belts. a difficultjuggling act in a couple weeks time. it will have to find some rabbits to pull out of the hat. staying with the telegraph. this meeting we have been reporting on, the brexit cabinet, the telegraph saying that theresa may is facing resignations over the endless backstop, the idea that the uk remains in some endless customs union. that really upsets the eurosceptics. they think it is just a staying in the customs union for ever and ever. absolutely. this in a brexit war cabinet were being briefed this evening. it is the people who are not in the room who are most angry about it. it seems to be eurosceptics are most angry about it. it seems to be eurosce ptics like are most angry about it. it seems to be eurosceptics like esther mcvey, penny morton, who are set on the idea that britain cannot sign up to this idea that britain cannot be an insurance policy for the irish border where as if there is no deal and there is no way to square a
11:39 pm
hardboard in northern ireland or the whole uk effectively stays in the same rules as the whole eu. if it happens it has to have a time limit. brussels says you cannot have an insurance policy where there is a time limit on because then you get the same problem delayed. it seems like the prime minister has potentially accepted some of those arguments and might get a barge around the language. it will be interesting to see how the fallout happens in the next 24 hours. interesting to see how the fallout happens in the next 24 hoursm seems impossible to fight this. they're not going to allow her to come up with fuzzy language. they will see right through it. it has got to the point where you cannot fudge it any longer. she will have to come down on one side or the other. what ever plan you put before parliament, you feel she cannot get the numbers to get it through, because somebody is upset. you only have to look at the opinion polls, the general public, some people want a second referendum, others want to drop out without a deal. it is
11:40 pm
exactly the same in parliament. so many different views of what brexit should be. it is very difficult for her to square that circle. and no majority for anything at times. there does not seem to be anything, second referendum, the chequers deal, a norway deal, none of it seems to command a majority of the parliament. we have tried to predict what would happen in a month was that time. it is difficult. like a chessboard. to get to one place there are 70 moves to get there. if this happens then five other different things could happen —— so many moves. it is the first time for a long time we speak to people in westminster and no one can predict with any certainty what will happen. there are those who think we will be in this basic constitutional crisis we re in this basic constitutional crisis were parliament actually cannot make a decision. it is quite funny. sometimes when you're talking to politicians they say, what do you think will happen? no one knows as much as anyone else. talk to fight
11:41 pm
different mps in the morning and you will get by different answers as to what will happen —— five different. let us look at another brexit related story in the guardian. this is about the m26 motorway, which a p pa re ntly is about the m26 motorway, which apparently is closing overnight for several weeks, they say, to prepare for lorry parking in a no—deal brexit. this is preparation is presumably to deal with the dover calais border crossing. tailbacks, it is one of the big worries of a ha rd it is one of the big worries of a hard brexit. customs checks will lead to huge tailbacks will sub i suppose the same will happen in france as it does in this end. for someone who drives on motorways from time to time, i wonder whether it will make any difference. you stand still in a big tailback of traffic. seriously, i think this is something that needs to be dealt with and the guardian have picked up this line that roadworks are taking place on these motorways now to prepare for
11:42 pm
this huge amount of hgvs, it drop pass. the details are extraordinary. the additional plan to use the m26 was the motorway that links the m25 in kent. that is 65 miles away from dover. it is an extraordinary distance. one of the things we often, when reporting on brexit, it feels a very fair radical when you talk about customs checks and various custom solutions. if you are an ordinary person you cannot see how that will affect you. if you live in kent this is exactly how a no—deal brexit boeree different brexit might affect you. it could literally be piles of lorries on the red wheel of —— for a different kind of brexit. some have said this is not what my constituents are doubtful. they were not told about it in advance. it has created some
11:43 pm
friction. talking about frictionless borders. written between mps. —— friction. it is a way of showing the eu that we are preparing for no deal, rather than the technical papers come out. i think so. we seek no deal is better than no deal. if we we re no deal is better than no deal. if we were preparing for no deal it might send a message to the eu that we do mean business and that theresa may is going to go out there and she is ready to walk away without the deal. what do you think? maybe. one of the things, this is actually what many of the brexiteers in parliament have been calling for. they have been saying what we don't want is announcements about how terrible it will be, we want people to spend money on actual physical infrastructure to deal with the problems. philip hammond, because he thinks the deal would be a terrible idea, he does not want to count it
11:44 pm
asa idea, he does not want to count it as a possibility. he does not think it will be a realistic possibility. he has been reluctant to do it. this is as concrete as it gets. it is on actual concrete. preparations for what no deal might look like. actual concrete. preparations for what no deal might look likem actual concrete. preparations for what no deal might look like. it is interesting that we have to wait for brexit to get the crumbling roads repaired. that is a good thing about brexit. let's move on to the times, a story about restaurants being ordered to shrink pizza and pie in the obesity fight. pubs, presumably take aways, health officials saying they want chefs to limit the calories you can have in these normally highly calorific foods. we are all more conscious than ever before about what we eat. it's notjust obesity, it is general health. too much sugar and fat in ourfood, this is
11:45 pm
it is general health. too much sugar and fat in our food, this is based on the chief nutritionist, allison ted son, who is saying we should have a limit on the calorific content have a limit on the calorific co nte nt of have a limit on the calorific content of pizzas and pies, which, as we all know from the song who eight all the pies, they are quite fascinating. peters, iwas astonished to learn that a pizza has 928 calories, which i'm told is about half the content... recommended number of calories —— pizzas. is that is even more with some, that isjust pizzas. is that is even more with some, that is just a margarita pizzas. is that is even more with some, that isjust a margarita —— it is even more with some. some, that isjust a margarita —— it is even more with somelj some, that isjust a margarita —— it is even more with some. i only eat a slice or two. you are obviously very restrained. pies, 695 calories is the maximum they‘ re restrained. pies, 695 calories is the maximum they're recommending, is there more in a payet? seems like enough to me! let's look at a couple of more stories, the metro, a transgender prisoner —— in a payet.
11:46 pm
the ministry ofjustice allowed a man transitioning to a woman into a female jail where the further offence was committed. it seems quite an extraordinary decision for them to make. it seems that the judge... the prosecution said he donned a wig, make up an fake breasts while being held in custody, but used in the new identity to target female inmates. if someone changes gender, i suspect they make proper checks before they do this. they owe a duty of care to female prisoners, and male prisoners for that matter, and some precautions should have been taken. this man has for rate, so how did this happen?
11:47 pm
above anything else, it seems an extraordinary failure of safeguarding about how this decision was taken and how it was made and the prosecutors said at leeds crown court that there was... the defendant's approach to transitioning had been less than committed so you can't make a judgement about the system from one case, but clearly there were concerns case, but clearly there were concerns that should have been taken more seriously. described as manipulative and controlling, so the signs were there for them to spot it. the daily mail, outrage here, saying judges are set for a £60,000 pay rise. one rule for them and another rule for the rest of us! while the public servants have been given a 3% limit, these poorjudges, really ha rd given a 3% limit, these poorjudges, really hard done by, they're going to get £60,000 a year, £1100 a week, a 32% pay rise and white, such a
11:48 pm
terrible job, nobody wants to become a judge. it's really stressful and they can't attract the talent dash and wilder. this won't go down well, will it? this will be a bit of a headache —— and why. this is an independent body review and they've decided to make the recommendation before the budget to the prime minister. so not ideal timing for the recommendations. they say it's because of low morale, it's incredibly stressful to be a judge, difficult and technical too, and you need to attract good people. the recommendation of that increase, on the face of it, we haven't seen the breakdown of why they are recommending an enormous leap like this, but when you put it to the general public they might find it difficult to take. if they find it stressful then maybe they should work as a police officer, prison officer or a jury bailiff, and see the stress those people have on their lower wages and the hard work
11:49 pm
and the risks they have to take every day rather than sitting behind a bench with a wig on. let's go back to the times. an incredible picture. this is a photo on the front of the times. the start of a new film. then if we look at page three... i hope you can see this —— the star. what is going on here? it is killed swinton. incredible. appearing as an 82—year—old man in a new film. —— it is tilda swinton. she plays three roles in this film apparently. a couple of cameos as well. fascinating how they made her look like an 82—year—old man with silicon on the face. padding on the body. that must have taken a long time to do that. incredible, isn't it? it
11:50 pm
took around four hours it says. i don't know who tracks this stuff, but it has been rumoured, people saying, who is this new guy who is playing this role ? saying, who is this new guy who is playing this role? he is supposedly 82 but we've never seen him in anything before and then apparently they read out a statement from him ata they read out a statement from him at a film festival saying he is a private person and he can't attend. people thought, who is this person? eventually they've come clean and it's a great reveal. made me more interested in seeing the film. these make up artists are fantastic. we have run out of time. we will have to leave it there on that story. that's it for the papers tonight. don't forget, you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website. it's all there for you seven days a week at and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you, david and jessica. goodbye. good evening, here's
11:51 pm
your latest from the bbc sport centre. scotland slipped to a 2—1 defeat against israel in their latest uefa nations league match. they took the lead in haifa, but ill discipline, ill fortune and illjudgement cost them dear, as patrick gearey reports. more words have been dedicated this week to one man who wasn't starting this match than to 11 who were. leigh griffiths' decision to leave the scotland squad to improve his fitness begs several questions, not least out with a score. well, with the help was israel for a start. foul, penalty. charlie mulgrew haven't scored for his country in 4.5 years and missed a penalty for scotla nd 4.5 years and missed a penalty for scotland earlier this year but never in doubt. israel might be dressed as
11:52 pm
manchester city but are ranked below luxembourg but should have been level at the break. the start of the second was largely played in scotland's half, the equaliserfelt inevitable for a while. all hands on deck for scotland but one went overboard, this got sued the scent off and further depleted scottish resistance. in the end tierney scored israel's winner for them. resistance. in the end tierney scored israel's winnerfor them. it was that connell might. a long way back from haifa and it seems alex mcleish's team have a long way to go -- it mcleish's team have a long way to go —— it was that kind of night. so scotland's first defeat and israel's first win leaves group c1 looking like this. scotland still top but only on goal difference with all teams on three points after two games. israel and albania meet on sunday. wales were also in action tonight, they lost 4—1 to spain in a friendly at the principality stadium in cardiff. spain have been in good form since their disastrous world cup and took the lead inside 10 minutes through paco alcacer. sergio ramos then scored a header before alcacer had the freedom of the welsh box to make it 3—0. marc barta added a fourth after half—time with wales struggling defensively again.
11:53 pm
sam vokes did score a last minute consolation goal but it was a heavy 4—1 defeat for ryan giggs' side. england play croatia in rijeka in their second nations league match tomorrrow after a opening group defeat against spain. the match will be played behind closed doors, save a few hundred members of the media and staff. whilst croatia have already named their starting lineup, gareth southgate feels any team he names will be more than capable of matching the world cup finallists there's nobody in the squad that is here that we're not thinking of putting in the team. it's not experimentation, its players we believe in. players, ok, that, in a lot of cases, are relatively inexperienced at the highest level, but players we've enjoyed working with, have shown in training this week that they can handle this level
11:54 pm
and we'll pick a team that we think‘s and we'll pick a team that we thinks the best one to win the game. the football association held what's been described as a healthy discussion today about the proposed sale of wembley stadium to american billionaire shahid khan. the deal, worth around £900 million, will go to a vote of the fa council on the 24th of october, with around a two thirds majority needed for the sale to proceed. bbc sport understands the proposal is in the balance, with councillors wanting reassurance on how the money will be spent. europe's ryder cup hero tommy fleetwood has enhanced his late charge for the european tour race to dubai by sharing the lead after the first round of the british masters. he's tied on 5—under par at walton heath, alongside english duo matt wallace and eddie pepperell, with a 1—shot lead. it was a special round for pepperell, who made a remarkable hole in one at the ninth. it was shock really. i mean, i
11:55 pm
missed the putt on the whole before andi missed the putt on the whole before and i thought i could be level par through nine because there is a tough par three coming up and i got a hole—in—1. a bizarre game, bizarre shot from where i was standing, looked like it pitched in the hole, jumped up, looked like it was going long because of the height it was going up and then i didn't see it from there and obviously it went in. so very nice. that's is all your sport for now. storm callu m callum is approaching from the west and that will bring wet and windy weather into many parts of the country over the next couple of days. todayit today it was a fairly breezy and showery day across the country, this isa showery day across the country, this is a picture from a weather watcher in reading as the showers cleared from there so a quiet spell for a time but our attention turns from the west because this is storm callum, bringing rain to western parts of england and wales. strong winds wrapped around that area of low pressure as well as the heavy rain, but we are particularly concerned about heavy rain in
11:56 pm
southern parts of wales. the met office have an amber warning for the heavy rain, lasting through friday and into saturday as well. for the rest of the night, that rain moving in across wales, the south—west of england, northern ireland and eastern scotland and eastern england should stay mostly dry for the rest of the night and wherever you are, with the breeze and mild air, those temperatures will be frost free first thing friday so another mild day but the winds will be the main feature of concern through tomorrow. gusts in the irish sea could be up to 60 or 70 mph, gusts in the irish sea could be up to 60 or70 mph, big gusts in the irish sea could be up to 60 or 70 mph, big waves around the coast and combine that with heavy rain as well... typicallyjust around 50 or 60 mph in exposed coasts. in northern ireland, most rain should have clear by 8am, sunshine and windy conditions but a wet and windy morning to come. through the day, that rain shifts slowly east and the next ripol in this rain comes in across parts of wales later in the afternoon so becoming quite heavy here. through
11:57 pm
the east midlands, east anglia and the east midlands, east anglia and the south—east use should avoid most of the wet weather. still pretty mild, 20 or21, buta windy of the wet weather. still pretty mild, 20 or 21, but a windy day wherever you are. into saturday, this band of rain becomes slow—moving. the tail end of storm callum, the main low pressure shifts from the north, not as windy as saturday, still blustery but the rain will mount up and we could see 40-50 rain will mount up and we could see 40—50 millimetres of rain, even 100 millimetres of a higher ground in wales, especially in the south, very 5°99y wales, especially in the south, very soggy and the south—east of england remains mostly dry and in the sunshine pretty warm, temperatures 24, well above average for the time of year. by sunday, most of the rain will clear to the east. more rain and even snow over the mountains of scotland. wherever you are, a cooler day, less windy but for some those temperatures will be around ten cooler than they were on saturday. i'm ben bland in london. the headlines:
11:58 pm
and there is lift off of the soyuz... russia launches a criminal investigation after the crew of a soyuz rocket were forced to make an emergency landing. a trail of destruction left by one of the most powerful hurricanes ever to hit the united states. and should it be renamed the kanye west wing? donald trump hosts the rap star who appears to be his biggest fan. it was something about when i put this hat on, it made me feel like superman. you made a superman, that's my favourite superhero.
