what can gareth southgate‘s newest call—ups produce? the match itself is taking place behind closed doors. good evening and welcome to the bbc news at six. an inquest has found that the westminster attacker khalid masood was lawfully killed after murdering four pedestrians and a police officer in march last year. the metropolitan police have again apologised for not preventing the murder of pc keith palmer, who was stabbed by masood within the grounds of the palace of westminster. his colleague pc nick carlisle, who was standing near to pc palmer, has told the bbc how he tried to save his friend. our home affairs correspondent daniel sandford reports
6:02 pm
from the old bailey for us. the first the police protecting parliament knew of the westminster attack was when a 4x4 smashed into the perimeterfence. then, the driver, khalid masood, ran round the corner to the main gates of the house of commons. he was clearly coming into parliament and i believe that he was coming in with the intention, the sole intention, to kill police officers. pc nick carlisle was guarding the gates with his colleague pc keith palmer. he told me he saw khalid masood knock pc palmer to the ground. he'd known keith palmerfor ten years and he could see khalid masood stabbing his friend with two large knives. action clearly need to be taken, i'd already started running forward, his right—hand side was to me, i'd lined him up, i was going to strike him with a shoulder barge, a rugby tackle to his right side and put him to the floor. but when i was almost upon him he'd seen me coming and he turned to face me, knives up and i had to veer away to the side.
6:03 pm
at that point, pc palmer escaped and both officers ran towards parliament, pursued by khalid masood. already in sight coming up the cobbles were two close protection officers with their handguns drawn. i veered out of their line of sight to give them the opportunity to shoot, and pointed out the attacker, indicating, making it clear who he was. there was a warning, there was a volley of shots and they put him to the ground, they shot him. the pistol shots echoed around westminster. pistol shots this was the moment just after the officers opened fire. pc carlisle can be seen just to their left, but then he stepped forward again to deal with khalid masood. to prevent him getting back into the fight, i got forward and handcuffed him in the rear, making sure that if he had a detonator that it couldn't be used. so you handcuffed him even though you were worried that he might be wearing a suicide vest? yeah, to take him out of the fight. the inquest jury said today that khalid masood was lawfully killed
6:04 pm
by the close protection officer. the chief coroner said then acting commissioner of the metropolitan police, who was caught up in the attack and drove away in his official car seconds afterwards, had acted properly, and this afternoon his force dismissed recent criticism of him. there is nothing that craig could have done to have stopped masood or to have saved pc palmer or any others from being injured. craig was in a car accompanied by two civilian staff members. neither he nor the two civilian staff had any protective equipment with them. pc carlisle, seen here bottom left, went on to help in the effort to save his injured colleague. but pc palmer died protecting parliament. the verdict brings to the inquests, it's been a deeply uncomfortable
6:05 pm
process for the police who had to apologise after the policing of parliament was criticised by the coroner. it has also been a deeply sad process with lots of tears, as those shocking events of march last year we re those shocking events of march last year were relieved in minute detail. fiona. a student and drill rapper from london has been sent to prison for seven years for trafficking drugs into barrow in furness in cumbria. daniel olaloko was jailed alongside peter adebayo — both were part of so—called county lines, where gangs in cities use addicts in small towns and rural areas to sell drugs. an unprecedented 15 people have died from overdoses in barrow since december. our social affairs correspondent michael buchanan reports. i was raised in the gutter and it's ‘bout time i shine. still serving sunday specials... like many teenage boys, trigga t imagined what it would be like to be a criminal. his drill music videos glorify money, weaponry and misogyny. got this tool upon my waist...
6:06 pm
pursuing such a fantasy, however, usually ends in failure. police! stay where you are! as we watched on, trigga t, real name daniel olaloko, was arrested in halls of residence at the university of central lancashire. police, keep your hands up. in his room, police found a sword, knives, illegal drugs and hundreds of pounds. the 19—year—old pharmacology student was today sentenced to seven years in prison after pleading guilty to supplying heroin and crack cocaine, a key link nin a supply chain spanning 300 miles cocaine, a key link in a supply chain spanning 300 miles from london to barrow—in—furness. as we reported earlier this year, the town is plagued by drug dealers and their deadly consequences. there have been an unprecedented 15 drug—related deaths since december. one of the key breakthroughs in this case was when police arrested a vulnerable 17—year—old girl in one of these flats. she'd been sent from london to barrow to sell drugs. when they searched her they found
6:07 pm
more than 50 wraps of heroin and crack cocaine inserted in her. alongside 0laloko, another man with links to the london gang, peter adebayo, was also sentenced to seven years in prison. they were in the upper echelons of this organised crime group, so these convictions and the sentences today are a real positive boost for us and for the community. mind your head. as quickly as any particular dealers are jailed, however, more head to barrow. and over the past year, increasingly, they come from the capital. the main lads have not even be touched, they're still booming, their business is still there. this local drug user, who wishes to remain anonymous for his own safety, told me londoners have taken over. their willingness to flash off weapons and weaponry of automatic calibre, as a gun instead of a knife. they've brought guns in. they are now the top people in barrow. this dilapidated block of flats
6:08 pm
has long offered rich pickings for drug dealers. but this flat will open shortly as a community centre. so, we're only weeks away from this place opening...? supporting residents to say no. while police arrest the pushers... people here, bringing hope... ..counsellors like dave, who once himself sold illegal drugs in barrow, will offer recovery and rehabilitation. i've been on the other end, i've sat in the prison cells, if i've been in the grips, i've overdosed, and now, i have a life beyond my wildest dreams, and it's my passion and my desire to say, "look, i've got this, you can have this." so you came to barrow from liverpool to sell drugs, to sell misery on one level... mm—hmm. and now you've come back because... to bring hope, yeah. you start getting a bit fidgety... when we met bobby in april, hope was in short supply. you know the chances of you reaching old age are very slim. i know, it's pretty limited. very limited, in fact. you're ok with that? well, yeah. but this is bobby now.
6:09 pm
seeing himself on tv, drug—addled and dispirited, appalled him. he's been clean since 3rd july. ijust don't want to become a statistic, i want to be able to live my life, enjoy what's left of it, because you only get one life. i'm so glad i'm not doing that no more, i am really, really happy not to be in that world. different bobby. yeah. yeah, completely. bobby's success is due to courage, commitment and community. if barrow can bottle his resolve, fewer criminals will successfully prey on its most vulnerable residents. michael buchanan, bbc news, barrow—in—furness. a delegation from saudi arabia has arrived in turkey, saying they are there to investigate the disappearance of the saudi journalist and government criticjamal khashoggi. the bbc understands that turkey has "documented evidence" which they say prove that mr khashoggi was killed inside the saudi consulate in istanbul last week. allegations he was murdered have been dismissed
6:10 pm
by riyadh as "baseless". the government has further outlined what could happen if we leave the eu without a deal as part of its contingency planning. eurostar might be suspended and tickets no longer valid, and the electricity supply to northern ireland could be disrupted. 0ur deputy political editor, john pienaar, reports. 106 and counting. there would have to be action to protect energy supplies, keep the lights on, if eu rules suddenly fall away. could the eu rostar rules suddenly fall away. could the eurostar keep running? international rail services run on eu wide
6:11 pm
agreements which would have to be replaced, may be quickly. and what about the ao—odd countries britain buys and sells to and from as part of the union? no deal with them could mean new tariffs and checks on business covering around 12% of uk trade around the world. brexit secretary is looking on the bright side. if the eu don't match our ambition and if we get that unlikely no deal scenario, which we don't want, we will still be able to manage the risks and make sure we make a success of brexit. but next week theresa may meets her cabinet with an urgent problem, some ministers fear the lack of a trade deal after any transition if no brexit trade deal is ready by then. dominic raab is one who wants a clear end dates. what we cannot do it see the united kingdom locked in via the back door to a customs union arrangement which would leave us in indefinite limbo, that would not be leaving the eu. no more resignations aspect yet. i do think we have to
6:12 pm
give the prime minister the opportunity to be able to do a good deal for the united kingdom, something she is absolutely determined to do. ministers are staying loyal at least in public. the democratic unionists this is me relies on our holding back, all sides say no hard irish border after brexit but some checks between northern ireland and the mainland are on the table, so the dup is threatening to defeat the government and turn on mrs may. of the one red line in relation to the united kingdom is one which we will stand by come what may. it's very important for us that we keep the cost of two shall integrity of the united kingdom but also the economic integrity. for labour the prime minister's troubles are an easy target. there's two sets of negotiations going on, on the one devilment is negotiating in brussels. 0n the other hand they are negotiating around the cabinet table — and this has got to stop, the national interest has got to come first and this division at the heart
6:13 pm
of the government has been the cause of the government has been the cause of so much of the problems. even if thatis of so much of the problems. even if that is true the prime minister may well end up relying on pro—eu labour mps to get any deal through. for now she is trying to bridge the split on her own side. downing street says she will never allow britain to remain trapped permanently by eu customs rules. she needs a deal she can present as temporary. brussels is looking for a deal which will last as long as it needs to before i fully—fledged trade deals in place. the next meeting of eu leaders comes next week. breaking this deadlock will surely take longer — if it can be broken at all. john pienaar, bbc news, westminster. the chancellor has opened the door to tax rises, saying the government "may have to raise a little more tax" to pay for the health service. philip hammond has also told the bbc that britain could see an economic boost if it successfully negotiates a brexit deal with the european union. 0ur economics editor, kamal ahmed, spoke to him in bali, where finance ministers are meeting from around the world. hello, chancellor,
6:14 pm
very good to see you... in just over two weeks' time, you deliver the budget. you've got high levels of debt, you've got the risk to the economy from the brexit process, and you have a prime minister saying that austerity is over. can i start with that austerity issue. when the prime minister says that austerity is over, what does that mean? well, what the prime minister was saying was that when we get a good dealfrom our negotiations with the european union, then as well as being able to continue reducing our debt, which is very important for the future, we will also be able to provide more support for our public services. look, we've made a very large commitment to the nhs, because we know that it is the british people's number one priority. by ‘23—‘2li, we will be putting an extra £20.5 billion a year into the nhs in england alone in real terms — and that has to be paid for. does that commitment to the nhs trump any manifesto promise to cut taxes? we've said that we may have to raise
6:15 pm
a little more tax in order to support the nhs and deliver on our pledge. but there are many ways in which we can do that. it's important that we do it in a way that minimises any negative impact on the economy, minimises the effect on people. i am a low tax tory. chancellor, on brexit, some more positive noises, possibly, from the government in britain and also the rest of the european union — are you feeling more optimistic that there will be a brexit deal? and if there is, could there be some form of dividend for the uk economy? what has happened over the last week, ten days, is that there has been a measurable change in pace. there's a real sense now of engagement from both sides, rather than posturing towards each other. there's a real sense now of engagement from both sides, of shared enterprise in trying to solve a problem, rather than posturing towards each other. so, if we are able to get to a good dealfor britain,
6:16 pm
as we leave the european union, i believe there will be a dividend, a deal dividend for us, of higher economic growth and better outcomes than were otherwise anticipated. whatever the chancellor's positive words on a "deal dividend", what is clear is that austerity is still with us today. public service cuts, benefit cuts, are ahead. the chancellor calls himself "a low—tax tory." but he's left the door open to tax rises in the budget in two weeks' time. kamal ahmed, bbc news. our top story this evening: an inquest concludes that the westminster attacker khalid masood was lawfully killed. and still to come, 50 years on, the story of how one british record label established jamaican reggae in britain. coming up on sportsday on bbc news:
6:17 pm
we speak to michael carrick about his struggles with depression and ask him why things aren't going well forjose mourinho at manchester united. princess eugenie has married jack brooksbank at st george's chapel in windsor. the royal family and celebrities were among 850 guests at the ceremony. eugenie, the ninth in line to the throne, was given away by her father, prince andrew and watched by her grandmother, the queen and by her mother, sarah ferguson. crowds of wellwishers gathered on the windy streets outside the castle to watch proceedings. 0ur royal correspondent, nicholas witchell reports. hold onto your hats — it's another royal wedding, though this one was not quite in the same league as harry and meghan‘s. as the guests, celebrities among them, struggled through the autumn winds to st george's chapel, the sussexes slipped in quietly through a side door, more grateful than ever, perhaps, that their day had been
6:18 pm
one of spring sunshine. and then, three guesses who the next arrival was, low—key was never quite sarah ferguson's way, the mother of the bride made an exuberant entrance outside the chapel. there are those within the royal family who cannot get —— there are those within the royal family who cannot forget the embarrassments she has caused over the years, but this was the yorks' day —— and the duchess was clearly delighted to be part of the family again. the queen was there for the wedding of one of her granddaughters, and alongside her, the duke of edinburgh, a rare appearance by him at the age of 97. they took their places just behind the duchess of york, the first time it is thought
6:19 pm
that the duke of edinburgh has been in such close proximity to his erstwhile daughter—in—law for 26 years. it was time for the bride, princess eugenie, ninth in line to the throne, arrived with her father, the duke of york. waiting inside the chapel, the groom, jack brooksbank, a drinks company manager. the bride joined him at the altar, where they exchanged vows. i, eugenie victoria helena... take thee, jack christopher stamp... to my wedded husband.... 0n the steps of the chapel, there was a kiss. and then, a carriage ride through windsor. concerns have been expressed about the cost of providing security. in the event, it was a much smaller occasion than the sussexes wedding, with a shorter route and crowds which were respectable rather than large. would that have mattered to the couple at the centre of it all? 0ne assumes not. nicholas witchell, bbc news. the head of the company at the centre of the controversy about stock piled medical waste has hit back against claims of mismanagement. speaking for the first time,
6:20 pm
garry pettigrew of healthcare environmental services, told the bbc that body parts were not stored any longer than they should have been. the company has been stripped of some nhs contracts after hundreds of tonnes of clinical waste piled up at its sites. mr pettigrew was speaking to our health editor, hugh pym. he's the boss at the centre of a national row over hospital waste and garry pettigrew‘s company has lost disposable contract with some hospitals in infant because he was storing too much waste at his sights, he claims to me in some cases, medical waste was now not being handled safely. i know now that waste is being stored at hospitals in shipping containers and shipping containers are being lined with black liners, to stop liquids, whatever else, coming out, that has been put into skips. the department of health denied this and said there were strong governance to ensure safe disposal of waste and no gap in service provision. mr pettigrew says his company has
6:21 pm
a backlog because of a lack of incinerators around the uk to burn it. in a statement today, the regulator said: in e—mails seen by the bbc, mr pettigrew wrote to the agency in may, advising: an official responded: the agency said today, planned shutdowns did sometimes occur for maintenance. the company says it has been vilified for providing an excellent service. what do you say to someone who says that there are body parts stored at your sites, that it is unhygienic, that it is not safe? none of that is true, every single part people refer
6:22 pm
to there is dealt with securely, professionally, and any anatomical waste is stored in fridges, and at the same time prioritised for outward bound. in response to allegations from former staff that there had been a range of practices at sites which might be worrying to the public, the boss said they operated in line with official permits. and now for some of today's other news. police have confirmed that the driver of a minibus involved in yesterday's crash with a lorrry on the m4 has died from injuries. two other people died at the scene of the collisio. the other victims from the bus were staff members at prior‘s court school for autism in thatcham. police said there have been no arrests as a result of the crash. patisserie valerie's chairman has secured a rescue loan package after a black hole in the company's accounts led to its finance chief being arrested on suspicion of fraud. chris marsh was taken into custody last night, and later released on bail. earlier this week the firm said it had discovered significant irregularities in its accounts. the serious fraud office says it's begun a criminal investigation into an individual. usain bolt has scored

6:25 pm
and play reggae music. so, people would clear out their house, and we would go into the house and string up into a room, and then we would have a party. most of our parties are a multiracial thing. known as the motown of reggae, trojan records has left a musical and cultural legacy. these were children of the windrush, influencing generations of musicians, like the clash, culture club and madness, with the sounds that they produced. trojan's hits appealed to the white working—class skin heads, the fashion kind, not the fascist kind, that helped catapult the music into the charts. while the politicians were playing on the fears of the old folk, it was trojan's catalogue that united the youth, black and white, on the
6:26 pm
dancefloors, the playground, and on the streets. so, it was really music as a kind of tool for social change. trojan records folded in 1975, but, its legacy in british culture lives on. great stuff. time for a look at the weather. here's matt taylor. this storm has been doing a bit of mischief. yes, some very rough seas across western areas, some severe gales, across western areas, some severe gales, 80 mph, and for south wales, reports of flooding, met office amber warning reports of flooding, met office amberwarning remains in reports of flooding, met office amber warning remains in place for top more to come, particularly on hills facing the wind, more flooding, and rain continues to fall as it does in parts of west denton, central and eastern scotland. in the line from south—west england to south—west scotland, rain coming and
