11:30 pm
persistent rain courtesy of more persistent rain courtesy of this weather system, but i think the far south—west of england and western fringes of wales in the afternoon. either side of a lot of dry weather. some decent sunshine and began temperatures in double figures, up to the new teams. thursday into friday, cast her highs into the atlantic and watch our area of low pressure kicking low of its own, quite a deep feature potentially for friday, and that means the risk of some disruption to transport, i think. means the risk of some disruption to transport, ithink. strong means the risk of some disruption to transport, i think. strong winds to the west, and the risk transferring further east as we get towards the evening. first thing on friday rain piling its way into northern ireland, wales and the south—west of england. the wind the most disruptive factor. strong gusty cell lee is affecting ferry service is in some flights —— southerlies. dry and sunny weather, highs of 13 or 1a. get to dusk and we will start to see this whole system allowing its way further eastwards, so eastern areas
11:31 pm
do not escape. the black arrows are an indicator of the gust strength on friday afternoon. up to 70 mph in spots in exposure. through the afternoon into the evening, as promised, all of that rain sweeping its way further eastwards in time for the friday evening rush hour. strong, gusty winds, and finally it will be quieter than northern ireland by the end of the day. that whole system rolls out into the north sea, however, by the time again into saturday. we keep the area of low pressure for the weekend, and opens up a little. not feeding us those organised weather fronts but tending to push showers on the wind. we keep a westerly or south—westerly, remaining relatively mild, often breezy, and there will be some showers around. for many, dry weather and sunshine. target areas for the showers on saturday, western scotland, wales and southern counties of england. again, temperatures in double figures. not much to pick between the two days. if anything, on sunday we could see an area of organised rainfall
11:32 pm
pushing into southern counties of england. just watching this area quite closely, because a lot of remembrance day parades taking place on sunday. stay tuned if you need details about that. let's take a look on into next week. low pressure not keen to leave us in a hurry. it will perhaps be a little bit cooler early next week as the weather system early next week as the weather syste m co m es early next week as the weather system comes sweeping in from the atla ntic system comes sweeping in from the atlantic through the first half of the week. later in the week might look like high pressure from the continent may start to calm the weather down and leave us some pretty warm air, remaining relatively mild, but our issue later next week may become more a case of autumn mistand next week may become more a case of autumn mist and fog. hello. this is bbc news with rebecca jones. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow morning's papers in a moment. but first, the headlines. donald trump claims "tremendous success" in the mid—term elections after a night of mixed results for his republican party. the democrats won back control of the house of representatives. changes already at the white house.
11:33 pm
attorney generaljeff sessions is fired after months of criticism from president trump. home secretary sajid javid calls on the metropolitan police to step up its response to knife crime. fighting for his life — the 98—year—old assaulted and robbed in his london home. police say the violence used was beyond belief. theresa may is coming under intense pressure to publish the legal advice behind her brexit plan as labour, tory eurosceptics, and the democratic unionist party line up against her. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are the media editor at the guardian, jim waterson, and the victims
11:34 pm
commissioner and conservative peer, baroness newlove. welcome to you both. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. today's midterm results make the front of the ft. the paper leads on trump's call for bipartisanship with the democrats, with the president saying there's scope for collaboration after they captured the house of representatives. the guardian has a slightly different take on trump's reaction to the democrat's grip on the house, saying the us president has threatened a "war—like" response should they use their newly—acquired powers to investigate him. the republica ns' tightening grip on the senate is featured prominently on the front page of the times, with donald trump hailing the party's success a victory, and confirming that mike pence will be his running mate in 2020. the i focuses in on the record number of women and lgbt candidates making history being elected to congress. "trump gets the hump" — the president's heated exchange
11:35 pm
with the press earlier, in which he lashed out at various journalists, features on the front of the metro. a horrific story about a war hero fighting for his life in hospital after burglars viciously battered him in his home and left him to die, that's on the front of the mirror. the telegraph leads with an interview with prince charles ahead of his 70th birthday tomorrow. he promises not to be a "meddling" king. and that interview with the prince also features on the front of the express. so much to discuss and let us start with the times. leading tories tell me to scrap benefits, this is a times investigation. tell us more about this story. right, this is the time is looking at what is happening
11:36 pm
with the raft of benefits changes and the impact of the benefit freeze as george osborne introduced in 2015 and people across britain and the key factor they found, that more people start to lose than gain under the new universal credit system. —— stand too. people who are working but finding themselves still in poverty despite having employment is higher than any time in two decades and rising faster than employment, and rising faster than employment, and that malnutrition has tripled. there is also the slightly extraordinary claim that the former dwp secretary threatened to make a treasury official eat his balls for brea kfast treasury official eat his balls for breakfast during the row over universal credit, which is not a phrase you normally see on the front page of the happy time. or indeed on the bbc, here is what i mean by that, but anyway. indeed. but this is the tories talking about the fact that they are saying things like austerity is over, and leading tories have got the chairs of
11:37 pm
several select committee is saying that, what is happening with our benefits system, is austerity is over, why are people in work, who are working as a party says and we should be supporting them, why are they the ones who are struggling and do we need to have a rethink over decisions made in 2015? three is on, are they still the right thing to do? and that is where the quotes come in, and the fact that the times, soft right conservative supporting, but on the centre of the conservative party, is saying look, this is a moral, we're putting it on the front page and certain numbers are politicians are backing them and that, it is a sign that the weather is changing and this stuff. it is interesting that it does appear on the front page of the times, it is a times investigation, which does help. yes, there are many families who are working, they are working people, and yet they are suffering and going to food banks. it is real
11:38 pm
and going to food banks. it is real and from communities that i see, there is real struggle. it also causes frustration. the pm has announced the country that austerity is over but people are still feeling it, and and universal credit, everybody agrees it is good to have in one position but actually not at the detriment of other people having to find where they can pay for their rent, food, because malnutrition in the 21st century is appalling to hear. so i want people to be able to work because socially, morally, it helps their mental health, it helps, but at the same time you do not want the other factor when they have not got the money to be able to ulster the whole package of it themselves. but i do think it is very interesting, i think iain duncan smith thinks he is on i'm a celebrity get me out of here, in the jungle, and it does show when you have the heads of the committee, it shows this is actually about getting
11:39 pm
people back on the right track. so you are on the conservative benches, do you think that the government should be putting more funding into this? would you vote for that is that i think we do need to have more money, that the inflation, austerity, everyone has really felt this and it has not been an easy ride and i think we need to look at this and be clear about this. —— would you vote for that?” this and be clear about this. —— would you vote for that? i think we do. i think it comes a good place. i think the treasurer to look at her job but i think now we need to reflect, you are given with one hand and then brexit could change with another. i think we need some clarity on this, but i do think you have big headline a conservative peers and mps and ministers saying here that actually know what they are doing, and i think we need to give better benefits for people. it is not right for them to struggle. these are working, ordinary families
11:40 pm
trying to do the best they can, and we need to make sure we give them. do you think universal credit is going well when you see the rollout, when you go around?” going well when you see the rollout, when you go around? i have seen somewhere it works, some people say, but i have to say on the other hand people do not understand, they feel that it people do not understand, they feel thatitis people do not understand, they feel that it is not seamless, and i am working class myself. when they go to the job centres, it is not what they portray sometimes, they feel that, they feel worthless. it is about getting that reality check in, processes have a place but we have to understand these people that are trying to do the best they can, then all scavengers and we have have some educated people who need that help as well. helen, let's move on actually to the mirror, this is just an appalling story, isn't it, about this 98—year—old war hero who was battered in his own home by i think they were burglars, and the mirror,
11:41 pm
frankly its headline does raise a question i think a lot of people will agree with, what have we become? this brings me back to losing my husband and is not nice for the family of this gentleman to see this on the front page that i think it is very prominent have this, to say this what happens, for the sake of the television worth £20 and £50, whatever the value is, the leader veteran, especially this of all weeks, ijust think it is sickening to see. to find your father on the floor, i am sorry but it is absolutely disgusting. there is no excuse for this and communities do not feel safe, and for me it, this is burglary and somebody has been attacked, and i do hope, he is 98, i do hope he pulls through but unfortunately, i think the shock might have a detriment to his health and his family must be
11:42 pm
going through hell again and we have to stop as a society, the state has got an issue, society is not an issue, and we've got to make communities feel safer.|j issue, and we've got to make communities feel safer. i just really intrigued to know whether putting these images on the front page of the paper, do you find that that actually helps the families of the big runs, that they feel it is almost just as the big runs, that they feel it is almostjust as has been done by getting the word out of the horror of it? does it help families in this situation? i think every family is different. you see families who have children who are taking drugs and they are in connors, who said his message, but then what worries me is do we become so desensitised? we had liveaid with all these horrible pictures, and we are no better off, we are paying millions. pictures, and we are no better off, we are paying millionslj pictures, and we are no better off, we are paying millions. i think the family wanted these pictures to be seen family wanted these pictures to be seen by the public. yeah, and that is important, we must not get
11:43 pm
desensitised in saying that is the norm, we need to be more proactive rather than react if, say to me that breaks my heart and i hope, i give my regards to the family because thatis my regards to the family because that is not easy to see in the paper, it is somebody they love and wa nt paper, it is somebody they love and want to do the best they can. i'm going to ask your question now, what we going on to, trump i think. yes. the i in the mid—term elections, the democrats get hold of the house of representatives but the republicans consolidate their power in the senate. we go with the i this time. you can read anything into this result is that you want. you can read that donald trump is well—positioned for the twenty20 election as president, you can read that the democrats have revived themselves in places that people did not think that they would be revived. —— 2020. you have seen
11:44 pm
suburban, well off women in particular have switched away from him and turned democrat, voted democrat in places that you would not expect, and the make up, and this is probably the bit that is getting underreported, the make—up of the democratic party is changing. iam of the democratic party is changing. i am terrible, i can't say it, but thatis i am terrible, i can't say it, but that is alexandria ocasio—cortez, she is eight 29 york on the left of the party. she won the left of the party. —— a 29—year—old. she is a 29—year—old and you have these people we represent the values of bernie sanders, rather than hillary clinton, who are in british terms morejeremy corbyn clinton, who are in british terms more jeremy corbyn than clinton, who are in british terms morejeremy corbyn than tony blair. they are going to have a massive influence on who the party pics to face against donald trump in 2020,
11:45 pm
and the party has moved so far to the left in the past two years that what you might see as an election in 2020 which has donald trump running a race baiting, nationalistic, economically protectionist campaign, up economically protectionist campaign, up against someone promising such radical policies as free healthcare for all, and a minimum wage across the country. which in british terms sound positively moderate but in america, that is pretty radical thinking. and the centre ground could end up quite empty. thinking. and the centre ground could end up quite emptylj thinking. and the centre ground could end up quite empty. i think it is interesting the changing complexion of congress. far more women, far more people from ethnic 905. if what you're saying ari5e, it doe5 905. if what you're saying ari5e, it does also rai5e 905. if what you're saying ari5e, it does also raise the question will that be the way to beat donald trump in 2020 for me, this is not a fightback, it i5a for me, this is not a fightback, it is a positive. they were thinking at
11:46 pm
one time michelle obama would run, but i think this is good, 29 years of age, something to aspire to four young women, and good on them. i think we should have a variety of people. it always has been set kind of candidate that steps up on this artform and this might give a better voice for the people that feel they are not heard. she is 29, and she is so are not heard. she is 29, and she is so delighted, herself, you can see. sometimes we need fresh eyes and fresh ears to put back into politics for the next generation. it will be a fight, but i welcome any woman power on that platform. you still think trump is going to win in 2020? are mac if i went to the bookies, thatis are mac if i went to the bookies, that is what i would put my money on. incumbents normally do. he will dominate the entire conversation during the next election. he dominated the last one and he was only the candidate for the final few months, and every single democrat that stance him will be defined by their opposition to donald trump. he
11:47 pm
will set the agenda and he is in control of the media circus that will surround us. and by the way, tomorrow the 2020 campaign starts. so welcome to the next two years. let's turn to the telegraph now, and the spate of knife crimes in london, more than a spate, i think we have to call it now. the home secretary, sajid javid, has told cressida dick to step up over violence. is this a criticism of her? there are two parts to this, the very real aspect of knife crime in london being shocking. i live in south london and the extent to which you are no longer surprised when you hear the sirens and see the police tape the following morning, and there was a young man nearby at police station who was stabbed, no witnesses despite there being about 30 or 40
11:48 pm
people around, police never got anywhere with it and there is very little they can do when people just close ranks like that, and all that is left is a load of flowers by a phone box and one guy not around to grow old. the second part of it is this is a way of needling sadiq khan on the political side of things, paying into sadiq khan saying we need to cut austerity for that, when need to cut austerity for that, when need resources, so need to cut austerity for that, when need resources, so there is the human element in the political games and arguments over who is responsible. and sadiq khan saying todayit responsible. and sadiq khan saying today it would take ten years to try and solve the problem. today it would take ten years to try and solve the problemlj today it would take ten years to try and solve the problem. i think you ta ke and solve the problem. i think you take politics out of this, this is not about politics, but about society. youngsters who are carrying knives thinking they are protecting themselves and ending up dying with their own knives. we have to strip is right back, why have we got an issue? it is not about the
11:49 pm
politicians, it is about having a sustainable programme. and we follow the glasgow probe around the public health issue, and that is going to be starting now. what are we going to do now? we need to strip it back. in london especially we have more high—rise buildings than ever. if you are in that building and you end up you are in that building and you end up doing what the gang members do, it is exploitation. it is so frightening. we have lost the trust and confidence, so we have got to get right back down into the root of communities, because this has been bubbling and bubbling and bubbling, and it will not go away overnight. this needs to be fed in. a5 young as seven —year—olds are doing this, we need to be in there and we don't need to be in there and we don't need to be following, but leaving. we have one minute left to discuss prince charles and the arresting headline i am not that stupid. an interview he has given to mark his 70th birthday. i wonder why he has saidi 70th birthday. i wonder why he has said i am not that stupid, as well. it is said i am not that stupid, as well. it i5a said i am not that stupid, as well. it is a huge headline, and this is a
11:50 pm
celebration of his 70th birthday, and no matter what you think about him, it is about the journey of being on his way, having waited patiently, and yes, he is a spoilt little man, and all this, but at the end of it, what he has gone through with his sons and everything, this is about the royal household preparing themselves for sadly when we do lose queen elizabeth, getting all the ducks lineup. for the headline saying i am not stupid, he may be a way with the fairies sometimes, and that is what people perceive him to be, but i have seen him at events, he has a wicked sense of humour, he tells jokes. him at events, he has a wicked sense of humour, he tellsjokes. and him at events, he has a wicked sense of humour, he tells jokes. and they are absolutely funny. and he does a lot for the prints's trust. —— prince's trust. and to put it into
11:51 pm
some kind of context, he said that when asked whether he would meddle a5 king. 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 is all there for you seven days a week at bbc.co.uk/paper5, and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you to our guests, jim waterson and baroness newlove. goodbye. good evening. manchester united pulled off a remarkable turnaround to win 2—1 againstjuventus in the champions league. jose mourihno's side scored twice in the final five minutes to steal the victory. a dramatic night in turin, then, and adam wild has the details. for manchester united, turin will
11:52 pm
a lwa y5 for manchester united, turin will always hold memories of the past, now a chance to create some awful stock everywhere, it seems, reminders of what they once had. his moment, cristiano ronaldo would have to wait. juventus, well they posed a threat throughout, when the post keeping them out until the break. all the while they were getting closer, this effort hitting the bar, unaccustomed frustration for the italian champions. but then came ronaldo's time to shine against his former club, a moment of breathtaking brilliance and beauty. ona night breathtaking brilliance and beauty. on a night to stir the memories, a golf you will forget. what it may not be how this game will be remembered. five minutes remaining, perseverance and precision finally paid off, juan mata putting united level. and while that was celebrated like a winner, the real thing was on its way. another freekick, like a winner, the real thing was on its way. anotherfreekick, a desperate scramble, somehow it went in. somehow they had won it. turin somehow is still a special place for
11:53 pm
united. well, juventus only needed a draw to secure their spot in the knockout stages. they started the game five points ahead of manchester united. that gap is now down to two. valencia, in third, were 3—1 winners against young boys in the other group game. a more straightforward result for united's neighbours, manchester city. they were 6—0 winners against shakhtar donetsk at the etihad, this their biggest win in the champions league. and they started fast. captain david silva opened the scoring just 13 minutes in. raheem sterling was causing trouble for shaktar on goal, and then this — stumbles, stubs his foot, fell over, penalty given. most in agreement it was comical, but serious as gabrieljesus scored the resulting penalty. sterling did better later on, the best goal of the game by far, this just after the break to make it 3—0. by the end, it was jesus on a hat—trick who made it 6—0. city were just minutes from reaching the last 16,
11:54 pm
but pavel kaderabek‘s late equaliser for hoffenheim at lyon means pep guardiola's side will have to wait until the next match in france to seal their qualification. elsewhere, real madrid's caretaker coach santiago solari oversaw a 5—0 win at viktoria plzen, gareth bale one of the goalscorers. real are level on nine points with group g leaders roma. bayern munich beat aek 2—0 at the allianz arena. they only need a point from their next game against group e rivals benfica to progress. five—weight world boxing champion floyd mayweather has denied agreeing to a fight with a japanese kickboxer, and claims he had never heard of him until this week. mayweather was reported to have made a deal to face tenshin nasukawa injapan on new year's eve. but he now says he only ever agreed to an exhibition bout in a non—televised event for wealthy spectators, and that he was completely blindsided by the arrangements that were being made without his approval. he has apologised to his
11:55 pm
fans for what he calls very misleading information. st helens and england winger tommy makinson has won rugby league's highest individual award, the golden boot. he is only the fifth englishman to pick up the prize, which is handed out by the rugby league international federation for being the world's best player. he scored a hat—trick of tries last weekend as england won the second test to secure the tri—series against new zealand. australia's isabelle kelly won the inaugural women's golden boot. that's all the sport for now. hello there. it has been a very wet day across western areas, especially for northern ireland where we saw some minorflooding tied in with that weather front which has cleared away northwards. a very small ridge
11:56 pm
of high pressure is building in behind it, with skies clearing tonight. last of any showers across central parts of the country will drift northwards. skies were clear for many. the winds will fall briefly as well, and being the time of year, it will turn quite chilly, temperatures down into single figures for many. we could even see a touch of frost out of town in rural parts of scotland and northern england. you can see the orange colours across the south—west, with more rain around due to another weather front. thursday is looking drive many, with good spells of sunshine. a chilean bright start across the country. showers from the word go around northern ireland, scotla nd word go around northern ireland, scotland and north—west england, these will clear northwards and the sunshine will move in behind these showers. then another cluster of showery burst of rain will push into south—west england and wales in the northern england for the afternoon. on either side of that it should be dry and bright. quite easy and mild again into the afternoon, with 13 or 14 celsius air. 11 or 12 further north. looking to the west, this
11:57 pm
next area of low pressure is going to give us a very stormy end to the week. this deep low bringing gale5 and rain initially the western areas and rain initially the western areas and spread across the country during friday night. some of these gale5 could be severe in the west and with heavy rain having already saturated the ground there could be some issues and transport problems, so keep tuned to your bbc local radio. friday starts off on a nice note, a lot of sunshine around across eastern scotland and eastern england. it will stay dry but further west the gale5 and rain will start to sweep in, and it will become quite severe into the afternoon, gusts touching 60 or 70 mph in exposure. generally many inland a5 mph in exposure. generally many inland as we get 30 to 40 mph, so still very blustery. temperature—wise, on the mild side with 11 to 13 or 14 degrees in the south—east. wet and windy weather sweeps south—east. wet and windy weather swee ps a cross south—east. wet and windy weather sweeps across the south—east. wet and windy weather 5weep5 across the country during friday night and then into the south for the weekend we hold on to the low pressure nearby and continue to tap into some of this, the area off
11:58 pm
the near continent. it will remain quite easy with this low pressure nearby. fairly mild, especially in the south and the east, and there will be sunshine and blustery showers, some of which will be heavy, frequent in the north and the west. that is your latest weather. welcome to newsday on the bbc. i'm sharanjit leyl, in singapore, the headlines: president trump says he can work with democrats after they take control of the house of representatives, but he's clashed with reporters at an ill—tempered press conference. cnn should be ashamed of itself, having you working for them. you are a rude, terrible person and you shouldn't be working for them. the president sacks attorney generaljeff sessions, after repeatedly criticising him over the handling of the russia investigation. i'm babita sharma, in london. also in the programme: a pakistani christian woman who spent eight years on death row for blasphemy has been freed from jail, a week after her acquittal triggered angry protests. one hundreds years on —
