and find out more about the week's releases the film review. good evening. 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 from the old bailey for us. the first the police protecting parliament knew of the westminster attack was when a 4x4 smashed into the perimeter fence.
8:03 pm
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. at that point, pc palmer escaped and both officers ran towards parliament,
8:04 pm
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 momentjust 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 by the close protection officer. the chief coroner said
8:05 pm
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. that was daniel sam bird reporting there. —— daniel sanford reporting there. and we'll find out how this story, and many others, are covered in tomorrow's front pages at 10:40 and 11:30 this evening

8:07 pm
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 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 more than 50 wraps of heroin and crack cocaine inserted in her. alongside 0laloko, another man with links to the london gang,
8:08 pm
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've brought guns in. they are now the top people in barrow. this dilapidated block of flats 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.
8:09 pm
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. 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
8:10 pm
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. 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. the picture is building and it's not pretty.
8:11 pm
brexit with no deal could mean disruption to travel and trade in business. warning notices are pouring out of government now. 106 and counting. the latest to receive this in northern ireland. there'd have to be action to protect inner suppliers, keep the lights on if you rule suddenly fall away. good euro starkey running? international rail services run on an eu wide agreements and they would have to be replaced, bv quickly, and what about trade? not just with the eu but the 40 what about trade? not just with the eu but the a0 odd countries that britain buys and sells as part of the union. new deal with them could mean new tariffs and new checks covering around 12% of uk trade around the world, the brexit secretary is looking on the bright side. if the eu do not match and we would get the unlikely new deal scenario, we could manage the risks and make sure we make a success of brexit. but next week theresa may meets her cabinet with an urgent
8:12 pm
problem, some ministers fear into being bound by customs rules, and he is one who wants a clear and date. what we cannot do is see the united kingdom logged in via the back door to custom union arrangement which would leave an indefinite limbo, that would not be leaving the eu. no resignations yet. we have to give the prime minister the opportunity to do the prime minister the opportunity todoa the prime minister the opportunity to do a good deal for the united kingdom, something she is determined to do. brexiteer ministers are staying loyal at least in public. the democratic unionists, that theresa may relies on are holding back, wide? because all sides ate no ha rd back, wide? because all sides ate no hard irish border after brexit but some checks between are on the table. the dup is threatening to defeat the government and turn on theresa may. the bottom line is that we will stand by, make, it is very
8:13 pm
important for us that we keep the constitutional integrity of the united kingdom but also the economic entitlement. the pm's troubles are an easy target. there are two sets of negotiations going on, the government is negotiating with brussels, and then negotiating around the cabinet table, the public interest has got to come first. this division at the heart of the government has been the cause of so much of the problem. even if that is true, the prime minister may well end up relying on pro labour mps to get any deal through, she is trying to bridge the split on her own side with downing street saying that she will never allow britain to remain trapped permanently by eu customs rule, she needs a deal to present as temporary. brussels will look for a deal that will last as long as it needs to go for a fully fledged deal is in place. the next meeting of the eu leaders comes next week in
8:14 pm
breaking this deadlock will come longer if it could be broken out all. a little earlier i spoke to our political correspondent chris mason in westminster, who outlined the key points of the latest brexit papers released by the government today. the government has been keenly aware in the last couple of months that it needs to be seen to be setting out contingency plans in the event of no deal, what we mean by that, we mean in the next couple of months there is no successful conclusion around a withdrawal agreement, and therefore on the 29th of march next year, the uk on the 29th of march next year, the u k weaves on the 29th of march next year, the uk weaves the european union without any deal and what that would come rapid change and significant change pretty much overnight. so as we are hearing that concerns around travel, and for instance the movement of forces, the movement of housing your
8:15 pm
passport would need to be updated. the human passport as well as the movement of animals. a reminder of when you go through these papers, there is more than 100 of them now, it is the extent of which the uk over a generation has become so enmeshed within the european union rules and there are lots of the advocates of brexit which is why it makes sense that the uk is leaving but in the absence of a deal, you would go from having those rules are monday to nothing existing the day after. industry obviously keen to learn how this would affect them and what is in those contingency plans. what sort of reaction has there been? nervousness, real nervousness from a good number of sectors around the prospect of no deal simply because in this is a mantra repeated but it is crucial in this context, one thing business does not like his uncertainty in the very nature of the brexit process in the context of no deal would be the potential for
8:16 pm
lots of uncertainty. the government says it is doing its best to mitigate the risks of a new deal brexit if that was come to pass but we acknowledge that it would not be a walk in the park. i suspect what will probably happen if no deal was looking likely is that there would be an attempt to strike a series of many deals in individual sectors to try to ensure for and since that you're a star trains leave the uk and get to france and to belgium, that planes can take off and land from the uk flying in and out of the european union, they would have to be done pretty hasty and not very comprehensive, said the government acknowledges in the event of the new deal, that things will be bumpy. that was chris mason speaking to us earlier. the time is 8:16pm. the headlines on bbc news... an inquest finds the man who carried out the westminster bridge terror attack, khalid masood,
8:17 pm

8:18 pm
this game could be crucial. meanwhile northern ireland are in vienna playing austria and it is currently 0—0 there as well. the former manchester united midfielder michael carrick says his part in united's champions league final defeat in 2009 led to a year long spell of depression. carrick, who won five league titles as a player, said feelings of anxiety became so bad he couldn't face being away from home whilst playing with england and made him consider early retirement. he also says since speaking about it, he's been contacted by other players who have also suffered with depression. the champions league, for whatever whatever reason i could not shake it off andi whatever reason i could not shake it off and i think negatively about the game which i should've done, which i have always done, beating yourself up, why did that happen but it lasted longer and it snowballed and i started doubting myself. have i
8:19 pm
gotan up i started doubting myself. have i got an up to be at the very top, it was irrelevant, i just got an up to be at the very top, it was irrelevant, ijust blocked it out. i do not know why i had those feelings for so long but i just could not shake it off and i could not snap out of it and it was in my mind for a good year after that. rugby‘s champions cup returns this weekend — the opening game is in dublin tonight. champions leinster hosting wasps at the rds. just over half an gone, and it's 7—3 to leinster, ireland hooker sean cronin opening the scoring. golf now. england's charley hull has a a way share of the lead halfway through the keb hana bank championship in south korea. meanwhile her compatriot eddie pepperell is also leading at the british masters. pepperell has a three shot lead on eight under par after following up his first round 67 with a solid 69 at walton heath, he's three shots clear. it's not going so well for europe's ryder cup heroes — justin rose, francesco molinari and tommy fleetwood are all well down the leaderboard — fleetwood was sharing the lead going into the second

8:22 pm
discuss this with us. what do you make of this? the whole thing is absolutely bizarre. because you have known him for long time and you've heard of him in the 1980s in trying to fire the soviets in afghanistan and was close to the prince of turkey, and head of the intelligence at the time and various newspaper and very close to the government there. and so he is actually singing from the same hymn sheet as president erdogan and the turks and one should think you should keep an eye on him and again he has contacts still inside the diplomatic circles
8:23 pm
of saudi arabia so he must‘ve had an appointment and not just walked of saudi arabia so he must‘ve had an appointment and notjust walked in. i have been reading about this and many people are saying that this idea of appointments and being called to meetings is nothing new. it is not a new tactic by the saudi government and then a lot of people disappear off the back of these meetings. what i am interested in is the fact that they have sent a saudi delegation to turkey, is there really hope that something will come out of this? at least we will have something official because all the news we have now are actually leaked from sources, intelligence, the question, if you think intelligence playing with each other, if you have something on me, then you would try to blackmail me behind the scene and get something back. before you leak it to the media. so the question is at least will have some official version of the story, why he is going there or why he didn't tell
8:24 pm
his handlers in the turkey official dumb. what you make the timing, why are turkey now saying, we heard this earlier this week, why now are they saying 0k, we have copy president erdogan was holding back a bit, wasn't he? that is what a thing, holding back but what is he negotiating about? they are on the same side but let's not forget that they are playing different games and is becoming much closer to president putin and they have no love lost with the saudis and he sees them as pa rt with the saudis and he sees them as part of the western camp. a lot of questions. if you look at american media, they are also giving the information by the american intelligence not the turks. what you think of the american intelligence, stepping into this? we thought donald trump on a visit last year i
8:25 pm
believe it was. and there are arms deals concerned here and there are lots of connections with saudi arabia. for all these countries that are now stepping up and voicing their concerns and for companies pulling out of this upcoming investment summit, is it a big risk for them to be in so outspoken against a country like saudi arabia? absolutely. when donald trump said we are not talking about the investment, but you know donald trump always... what you think about these businesses must probably putting out of the conference is one thing, but actually doing it and pulling out of the business is something else. there as also a question i would like to ask, is it cooperation between our and my sex in the saudi intelligence giving as many tips and they should at least
8:26 pm
have some questions at this level as well. what we are essentially describing here is state sponsored murder. would something like this have gone so far up the chain as the crown prince, is this something he would have sanction?” crown prince, is this something he would have sanction? i doubt it very much. he would have been taking very strong much. he would have been taking very strong measures much. he would have been taking very strong measures against what they would view as corrupt or in the way of progress and let's not forget that people like him will will be is still 0k that people like him will will be is still0k in that people like him will will be is still 0k in the muslim brotherhood. i doubt it very much and again let's wait for the official version we might bea wait for the official version we might be a bit wiser in a few days' time. thank you very much. you are watching bbc news. time for the weather. storm calum and rain

8:32 pm
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—‘2a, 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 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.
8:33 pm
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, 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, 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,
8:34 pm
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. police have confirmed that the driver of a minibus involved in yesterday's crash with a lorrry on the ma has died from their injuries. two other people died at the scene of the collision. 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. a man from lincoln has pleaded guilty to sending a series of highly offensive letters and packages following an investigation by counter—terrorism officials. as part of a two—year hate campaign, david parnham called for a "punish a muslim day" and targeted mosques, muslim politicians and public figures including the queen and the prime minister. today at the old bailey, the 35—year—old admitted 15
