1:30 pm
it is probably a little less stuff off the field to do because you are splitting it. and more time to think about what is most important for us, which is the team both on and off the field, so i think it can be a good thing in that respect. now, elsewhere on saturday, tomorrow scotland and wales away from the southern hemisphere, the teams play each other in a match which welsh coach warren gatland assurers are certainly will not be friendly. meanwhile, ireland, the highest ranked european rugby team take the rugby message to the united states, playing italy in chicago. where novembers i am told i very rarely mediterranean. and we can look at the weather now for the weekend forecast will here's darren bett. it was a cold and frosty start for
1:31 pm
most of us and most of us enjoyed blue sunshine. but look at this in the atlantic, ex hurricane oscar. and it is pushing in that area of cloud. the rain will be holding off until the end of the day, cloud pushing eastwards in scotland, but england staying dry and sunny. temperatures getting up to ten or ii degrees. this evening we will see the wind picking up and rain pushing into northern ireland. as we get these gales in the western coasts it will push the rain further east into scotland. rain in western parts of england and wales. in the south east of england and east anglia we have got lighter winds and clearer skies and maybe some frost in rural areas, but a much milder night than last night, particularly in the north west where we start the weekend wet and windy. that rain could be heavy
1:32 pm
at times over the hills in western scotland. that band of rain moves slowly south eastwards, eventually bringing rain into cumbria. it will bea bringing rain into cumbria. it will be a windy day with gales in the irish sea and western scotland. the rain is moving very slowly eastwards and because it is southerly, it should be mild as well, maybe 14 degrees in the south—east and east anglia. let's follow this rain into the evening, a big weekend with fireworks and bonfires. we have got a bit of rain around, particularly in scotland. the rain moves away from belfast, not quite making it to cardiff. it will be dry with largely clear skies. dry for many of us on sunday. the rain on saturday is on that weather front and it stops as it gets anchored by this area of low pressure. a cloudy start on sunday
1:33 pm
for england and wales. rain is likely to develop in the south—west of england and then pushed into wales, scotland and northern ireland seeing some sunshine. we should get some sunshine in east anglia and the south—east. it will not be as windy, but still mild at 12 or 13. next week, we will keep the wind mainly from the south. but because it is a southerly, it should be mild and frost free. that's all from the bbc news at one, so it's goodbye from me, and on bbc one we nowjoin the bbc‘s news teams where you are. good afternoon. it's 1.30pm and here's your latest sports news. manchester city midfielder kevin du bruyne has been ruled out around six weeks after injuring knee ligaments in yesterday's league cup win over fulham.
1:34 pm
it was just his second start having already spent two months on the sidelines at the start of the season following an injury to his right knee. he had to be substituted late on in the game after defender timothy fosu—mensah landed heavily on his left knee. manager neil warnock‘s backed leicester city's decision to play at cardiff city tomorrow following the death of owner vichai srivaddhanaprabha, it will be the first match since the helicopter accident killed the chairman and four others last saturday. the leicester players took the decsion to play in memory of the owner and his family. warnock said he too would would have felt it right to play. it is just on an edge isn't it, life? you sometimes take things for granted. i know it's just a football match and i think it puts things in perspective, our problems and worries of promotion and relegation, it is just a game of football. that has been the biggest thing this week. if i had been the manager of leicester i would have wanted the lads to play to get back on what they are. it is such a turmoil in your mind when things like this happen. i've seen the effect it has had on my players, we weren't
1:35 pm
directly involved. i think it is just the whole football community have felt the shock. jose mourinho is refusing to discuss his side's title ambitions until they break into the top four. five points adrift of the champions league places, they're away at bournemouth in the lunchtime kick off, who sit two places above them in sixth. when you're outside the top four, i don't think you should speak about title race. i think when you are top four, which i believe we are going to be, then when you are there, you can look up, you can see the distance, you can look to the situation at the moment — injuries, suspensions, form—and then you can fill it. there's another blow for england with news that
1:36 pm
manu tualingi is out of tomorrow's first autumn international with a groin strain. it's the latest set back for the centre — sale wing chris ashton has been brought onto the bench to replace him. i think he's fine. the lads have spoke to him, he seems in high enough spirits, i don't think it's anything too serious. but obviously with his history, he's probably not the one to risk. so i'm sure he will be back around in the next couple of weeks. i don't think england player would miss any player, we have so much talent in this team. we are excited to get out there and play together. and finally cricket england's warm—up match against a sri lanka presidents eleven in colombo — the last before the first test starts next tuesday — ended in a draw. england declared their innings on 210 for 6, ben stokes top—scored with 53 before retiring out, while sam curan made an unbeaten 48.
1:37 pm
in reply, the president's side reached 200 for seven. finally, max whitlock is looking to win britain's first medal of the world gymnastics championship in doha this afternoon as he goes in the final of the pommel whitlock has won gold in the last two championships in glasgow and montreal and received the highest marks in qualifying for today's final — live coverage of this afternoon's action now on bbc two. that's all the sport for now. you can find more on all those stories on the bbc sport website. that's experts investigating the helicopter crash at leicester city's stadium on saturday have moved the wreckage to a specialist facility in farnborough. the club's owner, the thai billionaire vichai srivaddhanaprabha died along with two members of his staff,
1:38 pm
the pilot and a passenger when the aircraft came down just after taking off from the king power stadium. the air accidents investigation branch said initial work on its digital flight recorder — or black box — had also been successful. our reporter amy payne is in leicester — she spoke to my colleague vicki young. well it is of course almost a week since this crash here at the king power stadium, since that happened at around 8.30 last saturday night, the helicopter came to a rest in a car park at the stadium. since then, we are told investigators from the air accident investigation branch have been there busy picking through the wreckage, gathering and documenting evidence. last night, we are told that wreckage was lifted, supervised by their specialist team of engineers, and it has now arrived at its specialist facility in farnborough, where it will be laid out we are told and more detailed
1:39 pm
examinations will take place. now, that flight recorder that was in there was clearly severely damaged by the fire after this crash. but we are told they have successfully down loaded recordings and that detailed examination work will continue. behind you, we can see that absolute sea of tributes and flowers, the owner was so popular, there has been some really emotional scenes around leicester this week and of course the team are back in action tomorrow in the premier league? yes, emotional and extraordinary scenes frankly here at the king power stadium, these flowers and tributes and shirts have been growing and growing. they now stretch as you can probably see around this whole kerb by turnstiles 44 and 46 and this man
1:40 pm
clearly won not just the affections of club, but the city and people continue to come here and leave their messages, to pay their respects. we are told this match against southampton was cancelled on tuesday, that was due to be their first match after this crash. that will be rearranged for 27th november. but tomorrow will be the team's fist match back against cardiff in the premier league. we are told it will go ahead. the players‘ decision to do that, we learned that yesterday in the press conference with the manager claude puel. he said the result isn't important, the most port is to give their best to honour the chairman. we understand there will be tributes at that game, including flying of thai flags from both sides. all premier league matches this weekend will start with a minute's silence and playersjust like the leicester team will wear black arm bands. we also understand the funeral is shortly
1:41 pm
going to get under way, we understand the chairman's body has arrived in thailand, players are, have been we are told, given the opportunity to attend after the cardiff game tomorrow. the houthi insurgency in yemen has prompted a bitter and protracted conflict in the country which has prompted a military intervention from neighbouring saudi arabia, cost thousands of lives and brought yemen to the brink of famine. now a leader of the rebel houthi movement has given a rare interview to the bbc. from the capital sa naa, orla guerin reports. going walkabout in sana'a with yemen's houthi leadership. they gave us a guided tour of the ancient city, showing us pictures of fighters killed in battle. after more than three years of war,
1:42 pm
the houthis still have a firm grip on the capital. this senior rebel leader, mohammed al—houthi, is keen to show he is a man of the people who will not hide from the saudis. you think they will target you at one time with an air strike? they tried many times but they haven't succeeded. what matters is the yemeni people. we are not worried. when we sat down, he said the saudis had shown the world what yemenis is already know with the brutal killing of the journalist, jamal khashoggi. translation: they just unveiled the face that was already obvious to the yemeni people. the yemmy people suffer. if there
1:43 pm
was coverage of crimes by the saudis and the americans, then yemen would be in and the americans, then yemen would beina and the americans, then yemen would be in a different situation now. how do you respond to allegations that they are guilty of human rights abuses themselves, that it wasn't just the saudis who made use of these things? independent committees should investigate these crimes, they are the only ones who can produce true and accurate information. i have met people who say they are victims of houthi attacks. what would you say. we do not deliberately harm civilians, but if they prove we harmed them, we are
1:44 pm
ready to compensate them. for the war—weary of yemen, a new threat is looming. starvation. the united nations has warned that within months, 12 million innocent civilians could fall victim to a man—made famine. the houthis blame a saudi blockade and they say britain has blood on its hands because it continues to supply arms to the saudis. the uk is usually responsible because of its arms sales. the british people should know that these weapons are being used by saudis who are fighting for sectarian and extremist reasons. that i have used by crazy people who strike every where, breaching humanitarian law. the conflict has become a quagmire
1:45 pm
and there is no sign of a military victory on the horizon. the us is pushing for a ceasefire and a return to peace talks but it's unclear if either side is ready to compromise. in a moment we'll have all the business news, but first the headlines on bbc news... our changing climate: a new report says britain has had more extreme weather over the last ten years than in previous decades. police launch a criminal investigation into allegations of anti semitic hate crimes within the labour party. two people have been stabbed at sony music's london hq - armed officers were called and one person was arrested. business news: more strong economic numbers out from the us. the number of people in work increased by 250,000 — way ahead of most predictions —
1:46 pm
and the unemployment rate was the same as last month: 3.7%. these are the last big economic numbers out before the mid—term elections in the us. a warning from mps about the pressure being put on hm revenue & customs. the public accounts committee is warning that tax officials are already struggling with a huge workload and has "serious concerns" about the introduction of a new customs service and the impact of brexit on uk borders. the new £50 note will feature a prominent british scientist, the bank of england has announced, with the public being asked for nominations. in addition to the queen, the note will portray an eminent late scientist from fields such as biology, astronomy and medical research. if you have an idea you can suggest it on the bank's website over the next six weeks. the north—south divide in house prices will narrow in the next five years as property values in northern england rise by a fifth. property groups savills has predicted the average price of a home will rise tojust over £248,000. but properties in the north west will go up in price, it thinks, by 21.6% but byjust 4.5% in london.
1:47 pm
scotland and wales property will go up by nearly 20%. so why are things shifting? after all, the north—south divide in property prices has been around as long as wanyone can remember. we spoke to lawrence bowles, residential research analyst for savills. absolutely right, we have the fastest price growth predicted in the north west. low growth in london and the south of england. a lot driven by affordability pressure. the average deposit for a first time buyerin the average deposit for a first time buyer in london is £100,000. that is restricting the market to a wealthy group of buyers. it is not so constrained in the north and there is greater capacity for people to bid more and for loan to income
1:48 pm
ratios to stretch as you move through the midlands and the north of the country. one way you know winter is here, without looking out the window is your energy bills start rising. but more than every before people are finding themselves behind on payments before they've even turned on their central heating. the amount of debt owed to energy companies is up by a quarter on last year, at a time when usually people are in credit. rik smith is an energy expert at uswitch. why is this happening? so we have seen the increase in household energy debt increase by about £75 million compared to last year. this is because of two things. we have seen is because of two things. we have seen unprecedented levels of price increases, driven by the wholesale cost of power and the beast from the east, that is a thing that pushed up consumption. is the price cap going to make any difference do you think? so the price cap is projected to save about £75 on average for
1:49 pm
households, but we expect it to be unwound quickly when that is reviewed in the spring. so we expect a level of debt always to persist with customers at home. but what people at home should do is contact their supplier and let them know they're aware they're in debt and your supplier will help you with things like pricing your price. do you think people have been slow to pay, because they think the price cap will help? the price cap is a bit of a red herring when coming to helping you out, there are bigger savings to have by shopping around and finding a better deal. can you switch if you have got debt out to one energy company? so the picture is mixed. if you're paying by direct debit or when you receive a bill, your supplier will ask you to clear down that debt before you switch. your supplier will ask you to clear down that debt before you switchm you can't move until you have cleared the debt. so your solution not a solution if you're in debt and
1:50 pm
can't way it. if you're in dead you should talk to your supplier about ways to have getting you out of debt before winter and then make that active choice about who you want to give your money to this winter to pay for your gas and electricity. thank you. swedish furniture retailer ikea looks set to roll out its smaller city centre store format after seeing a positive response to its first outlet in london. uk boss javier quinones said the london shop was a "learning experiment" but its success meant the format was likely to expand to other uk cities. the concept allows people to browse items and discuss home decor plans without visiting out—of—town stores. uk construction activity rose in october amid faster growth in road, railway and airport projects. the ihs markit purchasing managers' index rose from the six—month low recorded in september. it said civil engineering activity grew at the strongest pace since july 2017, offsetting the weakest growth in house building for seven months. economists said brexit was still weighing on the outlook. fantasy sports have turned into a reality of losses
1:51 pm
for paddy power betfair. the bookmaker‘s us—based subsidiary fanduel, which it acquired injuly and merged with betfair us, offers online fantasy contests across professional sports. but "start—up losses" from the venture knocked the parent compa ny‘s third—quarter profits. now the markets: we have had good figures on employment. we have got pretty much zero unemployment in the united states technically. i mean there are people unemployed, but technically it is considered to be full employment in the united states. and the figures are strong. you can see the market in america reacting to that. ftse is looking strong. gold price has been surging, well, it was up 2%. that is unexpected, because the gold price has been dormant for the last few yea rs. has been dormant for the last few
1:52 pm
years. the pound looking strong against the euro at the moment. that's all the business news. britain's high streets are getting unhealthier according to a report looking at 70 major towns and cities. grimsby has been named the unhealthiest — as it has more businesses such as takeaways, gambling shops and tanning salons, and far fewer healthier ones, such as gyms, libraries, dentists and coffee shops. edinburgh was named the uk's healthiest, according to the royal society for public health which compiled the study. chief executive shirley cramer told the victoria derbyshire programme that there are five times the number of fast food outlets in deprived neighbourhoods than in wealthy ones. where you live, where you work, where you play, where you grow up and go to school has a massive effect on your life chances and on your health. health inequalities is something that government has talked about as part of the social
1:53 pm
injustices they want to see done. we know that environment is a really important part, so for example fast food outlets, there are five times more in deprived neighbourhoods than there are in wealthy ones. the same goes for the clustering of book makers in the unhealthiest areas. when folk musician sam sweeney went in seach of a new violin, he had no idea of the incredible story he was about to uncover. his chosen instrument had a label inside saying it had been pa rt—assembled in leeds during the first world war, but the maker never returned home to finish it. the bbc‘s john maguire explains how 100 years on, the fiddle is finally making music again. when sam sweeney, a folk musician, picked up and played this violin, it was love at first sound. out of all of them,
1:54 pm
i singled out this fiddle and fell in love with it. there was something about the tone that ijust adored. sam spotted the fiddle in roger claridge's shop. the pieces had sat in a bag in roger's workshop for years, until he was persuaded by his wife to assemble them, breathing new life into the old. inside, sam was intrigued by a label that read "richard howard, 1915" and the words "made in the great war". sam's father found the violin‘s creator through war records. more than a century ago, richard howard had headed off to war, but was killed at the battle of messene. at home, he left a wife, a daughter and the beginnings of a violin. he'd made five instruments, this is number six. he'd made five instruments and then he's called to war and he never comes back. and so the bits are there and here we are holding
1:55 pm
this now and you know, you don't make a violin like this, or the bits of it anyway, without putting yourself into it. there's a big chunk of richard howard in there. and it was an extraordinary experience to go from just looking for a new violin to suddenly discovering this absolutely incredible story and now i'm the guardian of this incredible historical artefact. it means so much to me, but it means so much to richard's descendants. your grandfather's violin. how lovely, thank you. and i can see the name inside. further research led to richard howard's granddaughter, mary, and through this instrument, she's been introduced to her grandfather for the first time. ooh... if i may use the phrase, it blew my socks off. i knew nothing about my grandfather before that. i didn't even know his full name. it was overwhelmingly emotional. for the first six months, i really couldn't talk about it
1:56 pm
to anyone outside the family. with mary present, sam played her grandfather's violin at his graveside in belgium. and i just thought the most amazing thing to do would be to take the fiddle that perhaps richard thought he'd never finish, take it to him and play it for him. and it was just lovely. it was as if i'd been at his funeral. mary has now met members of her wider family thanks to the fiddle's discovery and sam plays it on his new album, titled the unfinished violin which, now it's complete, is at long last fulfilling its destiny by bringing people together. john maguire, bbc news, hampshire. simon's here at the top of the hour. now a look at the weekend. we had a
1:57 pm
cold and frosty start this morning, but many parts have been enjoying blue skies and light winds. the weather will change and we see this deep area of low pressure is ex—hurricane oscar, it is pushing ahead this cloud. it is clouding overin ahead this cloud. it is clouding over in northern ireland and the rain holding off until later. we will see the cloud increasing in scotland, but england and wales will hang on to the sunshine. during this evening the rain will come into northern ireland and with the strengthening wind, with gales around western coasts, some rain pushing into scotland. heavy at times. for england and wales more cloud moving in. it should help keep the temperatures up. in the south—east and east anglia where we have clearer skies and it is not as windy, we will find the temperatures close to freezing. but on the whole
1:58 pm
a milder night than last night. we have this got this rain and strong to gale force winds across scotland and northern ireland to greet the weekend. the rain could be heavy over the hills of scotland. pushing into wales and cumbria. to the east dry. a blustery day with gales through the irish sea and western scotland. the rain isn't moving very farand it scotland. the rain isn't moving very far and it should be mild. temperatures of 15 degrees. in the evening you may have bonfire plans, you can see how the rain grinds to a halt. rain across scotland. moving away from northern ireland. heading into western wales. to the east drier and more areas will be dry on sunday evening. the reason for the rain on saturday evening is on that front there. it is moving into england and wales. at the same time it is weakening and slowing down and
1:59 pm
gets anchored by that low pressure developing to the south—west. we start cloudy for england and wales on sunday. not much rain around. but we will see it developing here in the south west of england and then into wales. scotland and northern ireland seeing some sunshine and showers in the north—west and some sunshine for east anglia and the south—east. it won't be as windy on sunday, but mild, temperatures 12 or 13 degrees. a look at early next week and we will keep these southerly winds. most of rain in western parts of uk, because it is a southerly, it should be mild and hopefully frost—free.
