this is bbc news. i'm chris rogers. the headlines at 5pm: one of the key commemorations to mark 100 years since the end of the first world war has taken place in compiegne. some 70 world leaders are in france for the centenary. the french president emmanuel macron and german chancellor angela merkel signed a book of remembrance inside a railway carriage that's identical to the one where the original ceasefire was sealed in 1918. the former transport minister, jojohnson, says more ministers may resign over the prime minister's brexit plans and voters were sold a "false prospectus" in the referendum. we're not going to get greater sovereignty, we're going to cede sovereignty, we're going to lose control over how rules affecting swathes of our economy are shaped. it's not the british parliament that's going to gain control from this, it's the french, german and european parliaments. four people — including a one—year—old baby — have died when a people carrier was hit by a car in sheffield that had been pursued by police.
5:01 pm
thousands of leicester city fans have taken part in a memorial walk in honour of those killed in the helicopter crash outside the club's stadium two weeks ago. heavenly father, please help us. please help us to be safe. driving through the inferno. at least 9 people are killed and a quarter of a million forced to flee their homes as wildfires burn out of control across california. hello and welcome to bbc news. one of the key commemorations to mark 100 years since the end of the first world war has taken place in compiegne, north of paris. the french president,
5:02 pm
emmanuel macron, and the german chancellor angela merkel, led the ceremonies, which saw the unveiling of a commemorative plaque and the laying of a wreath. a minute's silence was then held at the glade of the armistice. shortly after the silence, the two leaders completed a symbolic gesture together. this was just a short while ago. the pair enterered a replica railway carriage in a forest. the original one was destroyed in berlin by the germans. it is identical to the one where the armistice was signed at 5am on the morning of 11 november 1918. just six hours later, at "am, the fighting on the front line ceased. 0ur correspondent mark lowen is in compiegne, where some of those events have been taking place.
5:03 pm
he said president macron was keen to make sure the tone of this weekend's events was right. this is a sombre moment to remember those who fell. it is a moment to look at the relationship between france and germany and how far it has come in those 100 years, and also to champion, in his words, a multilateral and progressive, a cooperative, a collaborative europe, and that was the scene and the image of president macron standing next to chancellor merkel here in compiegne that came out of today. it was an extremely powerful moment. the last time that a german chancellor was here in compiegne was 78 years ago. that was when adolf hitler came here at the exact same spot where the armistice was signed back in 1918, in order to force the humiliating surrender of france, and he and the french authorities back in 19110 also sat inside that train carriage where the armistice was signed in 1918, and where chancellor merkel and president macron today sat some 78 years on. and they signed a book
5:04 pm
of remembrance, they listened to the national anthems of both countries, they laid a wreath here. a beautiful scene. i willjust show you this... dusk is beginning to fall here in compiegne, in this clearing, in this forest. just behind those gates, in that building, is where the replica of the train carriage now sits, an exact replica of wagon number 2491, where the armistice was signed on 11 november, 1918, and where the french and german leaders sat today. you can still see the images of them walking away down through the forest here in compiegne, the beautiful autumn colours lit up by the sun, which made an appearance after a very gloomy, very rainy start to the day. and really, such a powerful image of reconciliation. echoes, ithink, chris, of when, “119811, francois mitterand and helmut kohl — the french and german leaders back then — held hands. but today, you had the french
5:05 pm
and german leaders paying respects, commemorating the millions who fell and showing that this is the europe they believe in. the peacetime project that brought this continent, torn apart by war, together, and chancellor merkel and president macron very much the champions of that today. mark, i was reading up about carriage 2491. the replica, i believe, came from the same line of carriages from the people responsible for the orient express. because it was destroyed in berlin. it was dragged there by adolf hitler, wasn't it? nobody quite knows how was destroyed, but it was destroyed during world war ii. there you have two leaders of two countries that have twice been at war with each other, now incredibly unified, but it also struck me on a personal level as well. yeah, they have a very close personal relationship, and i think that's been clearly on display today. you can still see the two leaders engaging in a lot of close discussions as they have marked this commemoration. but also, to some extent, chris,
5:06 pm
they are the two perhaps last most powerful voices of the europe that they believe in, a europe which has come together, a force of multilateralism, and they will be joined in paris tomorrow, and today had a meeting with, donald trump — on the opposite end of the global political spectrum. he is a man who embodies unilateralism, nationalism, who fights very much for his slogan of "america first". and in a sense, chris, the feeling i got as i watched the french and german leaders here paying tribute to the past of europe and the future of europe, as they see it, they are now rather the minority. here in europe, you have the rise of much more nationalist voices — in hungary, in the czech republic, in poland. you have, of course, president erdogan in turkey, president putin in russia.
5:07 pm
all very much those strong nationalists which president macron says is a chilling echo of the europe that came out of the first world war. he has talked of the leprosy of nationalism, nationalism that thunders down into the abyss. and today, you had these strong believers, these strong champions of a multilateral, collaborative europe that came together in this extremely powerful moment. really, an image, as they sat inside that replica of the train carriage, they held hands, they signed the book of remembrance, and i think, chris, that will be an image that will taught to our children and our children's children as well, as a sign of what has happened in just 100 years. and the fear of that now being destroyed by the forces that president macron and chancellor merkel stand against. mark lowen reporting earlierfrom compiegne. much more on the bbc website. the former transport minister, jojohnson, has suggested more
5:08 pm
ministers could resign over theresa may's brexit plans. speaking to the bbc a day after his own resignation, mrjohnson repeated his call for another referendum, saying voters had been offered a "false prospectus" and a "fantasy set of promises" in 2016 and now had to face up to reality. the prime minister has been negotiating the terms of our exit from the european union. they are, in my view and others‘ views, so radically different from the brexit that was billed during the referendum, i think it would be a democratic travesty if we did not go back to the people and seek their consent for our departure from the eu on this basis. so different, you say, from what was billed during the referendum, so different from what was the idealised brexit. i have to point out, there is one person that did that — your brother. borisjohnson told us what it would be. what you're saying is, i think it appeared to be that he lied, got us to vote for leave, and he had no plan for getting out? look... in the campaign, there were undoubtedly promises made that have shown to be undeliverable. no one can dispute that. we were promised a brexit that
5:09 pm
would enable us to strike trade deals around the world. we are far from that with the deal that the prime minister is going to produce. we were promised a brexit that was going to unleash our economy as a low tax, singaporean tiger on the edge of europe. 0n the contrary, we are signing up to all the rules and regulations that bind the rest of the eu. is that an elegant way of saying that we were lied to? and we are going to end up... is that an elegant way of saying that we were lied to? we are going to end up ceding sovereignty, not taking back control. look, it was a false prospectus, it was a fantasy set of promises that have been shown up for what they were. we are now faced with the reality of that in the form of the deal the prime minister is about to bring back before parliament. my view is that this is so different from what was billed, it would be a travesty if we don't go back to the people and ask if they do want to exit the eu on this extraordinary hopeless basis. jojohnson there. meanwhile, downing street has ruled out another referendum, as our political correspondent, tom barton, explained.
5:10 pm
number ten have been clear throughout that there are no circumstances under which another referendum would be held. that said, we are at an incredibly difficult moment in the negotiations. a little earlier today, liam fox, the international trade secretary, said exactly that — the things that still need to be agreed are the most difficult. and theresa may needs to sign off on this deal with the european union if any progress is to be made. but once she has done that, she has to take it to parliament, get it signed off by parliament as well. jo johnson's resignation isn't going to help that. remainers and brexiteers both making it quite clear that they are not going to back the deal that is currently on the table. and if that happens, if she loses a vote in the house of commons, to some extent, all of the cards are thrown up in the air. and who knows where they are going to land? as forjo johnson's call
5:11 pm
for a second referendum, not only is he opposed by theresa may, he is opposed by brexit supporters on the backbenches as well. although many of them say that they support and recognise his assessment of the problems with the deal that's on the table. this is what one brexit supporter, bill cash, had to say a little earlier. frankly, a lot of the other matters about trade deals and about the backstop, about northern ireland, about all the other economic questions, are subsidiary but very, very important to the fundamental question — do you control your laws? because if you get control of your laws, then you can comply with the wishes of the general election, electorate and you can comply with the referendum itself. that is what that vote was all about. and it is about democratic self—government. and if i may say so, looking at tomorrow, remembrance day, the armistice commemorations, that's what people
5:12 pm
fought and died for. that is a really big question. that's why it is so important that we have to get control of our laws. how much trouble is theresa may in the moment? the biggest question for her is, two big questions... firstly, can she get the deal signed off? tricky, not impossible. can she get it through parliament? the numbers there are looking very, very difficult. once you take into account conservative brexit supporters who have said they are very unlikely to vote for the deal, conservative remain supporters likejojohnson and others who have said the deal doesn't work for them either, plus, the dup, who are making very negative noises... the dup leader in the papers again today saying that the deal appears to be on the table at the moment doesn't work for northern ireland. and labour, who say this deal, what looks like the deal,
5:13 pm
doesn't meet their test. that's a lot of people voting against it. does she have the numbers to get it through? the only way in which she is likely to get the numbers is by peeling off labour mps who are more worried by the idea of having no—deal than her deal. whether she's able to get enough of them, that is a big question. it's going to be a tricky few weeks to get to this deal, if she can get there. but once the deal has been signed off, getting it through parliament is going to be a whole different story. in the past hour, we've heard from the labour leaderjeremy corbyn, who's been campaigning at an event in teeside. and he's been giving his reaction to mrjohnson‘s resignation, as well as his thoughts on the viability of the prime minister's chequers plan. it does nothing to protect very important trading and jobs that exist all across the north east, and we are determined we will hold them to account so we can
5:14 pm
have a government in britain that's serious about fairness and investment across the whole piece. chequers does not do any of that. after all, most of the cabinet do not agree with chequers. seven ministers have already resigned over chequers, and we have twojohnsons that are at war with chequers. a constituency voted over 60% leave and 40% of labour supporters voted to leave, 60% voted remain. surely the time now is to bring people together, about the relationship we will have with europe in the future, protecting jobs, protecting the northern ireland border, about the trade relationship with what have with europe, but there has to be a customs union with europe, access to the european markets. jeremy corbyn speaking to us while he was campaigning. let's move on to other news. a very sad story, this. four people, including a one—year—old boy,
5:15 pm
died following a car crash in sheffield last night. a vw golf was involved in the collision with a people carrier in the darnall area of the city. three other passengers in the people carrier were also injured. one is in a critical condition. three men have been arrested and remain in custody. 0ur correspondent corinne wheatley gave us the latest from the scene. police have been on the scene here in the darnall area of sheffield all day today doing with the aftermath of this crash and as far as possible, keeping people away from the wreckage of these two vehicles which is bitterly distressing sector people living in the area. we know this crash happened just before 9pm last and involved to vehicles. 0ne was a vw people carrier which was turning right off this main road and the other was a vw golf which shortly before had been pursued by police. four people died last night. they were all travelling in that people carrier. two men from a woman and a one—year—old boy. three others
5:16 pm

5:17 pm
assisting that investigation. at least 12 people have been killed in flash flooding injordan. nearly 4,000 tourists have been evacuated from the ancient city of petra and a state of emergency has been declared in the red sea port city of aqaba. the victims include a diver who was involved in attempts to rescue people swept away by rising waters. leicester city football club has honoured the owner of the club — wee chye see wuh tuhnuhpruh paa — with a tribute video and a minute's applause before a match with burnley at the king power stadium. it's the first home match since the leicester owner died along with four others in a helicopter crash two weeks ago. the helicopter went down in a car park near the club's stadium. earlier, thousands of leicester city fans walked together from the city centre to the stadium to honour mrvichai. the 5,000—1 walk was named after the odds the club overcame to net their fairy tale 2016 premier league win. the supporters marched from jubilee square to the king power stadium ahead
5:18 pm
of that game against burnley, which ended in a 0—0 draw. on friday, the club announced plans to erect a statue of the chairman at the king power stadium. 0ur reporter navtej johal is in leicester city centre and has been watching the crowds march to the stadium. after two weeks of mourning, this march represents a chance for the football fans to show their solidarity, to do what fans do best and support leicester city football club and the city of leicester. and, of course, to pay respect to the five people who died in that tragic helicopter crash, including the owner, vichai srivaddhanaprabha, a man who was so instrumental in helping the club win the premier league title in 2016. 0vercoming odds of 5,000—1. it's in reference to that achievement that this memorial march has been dubbed the 5,000—1 march. it started in the city centre and has been winding its way across the city for a mile to the king power stadium. and before it began, i spoke to a few fans about why
5:19 pm
they wanted to be here. it's been a fabulous turnout. there's thousands and thousands. i think 5,000 to start with. it's going to be around 20,000, i imagine. and the burnley fans, they are coming up to support as well. it's fabulous that football is coming together. that's how it should be. that's how football should be, really. and that is down to vichai, the way he has brought football together. the march started a few minutes ago. leicester city players leading the march. fans with flags and banners, showing their support and respect for the owner, vichai srivaddhanaprabha. there will be a more permanent memorial for him as well. the club plans to have a statue erected outside the king power stadium. for today, this is a chance for many of these people to say their final goodbye to the five people who died in that helicopter crash two weeks ago. stay with the bbc news channel.
5:20 pm
in a moment, we'lljoin viewers on bbc one for the latest national news with my colleague, clive myrie. good afternoon. intense wildfires are sweeping across parts of california, with entire towns having to be evacuated. nine people are now known to have died and hundreds of thousands have been ordered to leave their homes. in the north of the state one blaze has devastated a town called paradise, where dozens of people are reported missing. from there, james cook reports. living in malibu means you have made it, but no amount of wealth or phone can stop a fire like this. the blaze was propelled to the pacific ocean by strong desert winds, forcing thousands to flee. i saw the flames coming over the mountain right next to our house and i knew i had to get out. we pretty much had enough time
5:21 pm
to get the dogs in the truck. oh, my god. this was the road out of calabasas, another neighbourhood favoured by celebrities. i'm so scared, it is so terrifying. kim kardashian and lady gaga were among a quarter of a million californians who had to leave their homes. but nowhere was the pain more acute than in thousand oaks, where michelle lost her home. there is a house that they took all their motorcycles out but the house made it. so i was just coming up the street to my neighbours and i didn't realise my house had gone to. for a town reeling from a shooting in a bar this week it was too much to bear. just 48 hours ago our city experienced a tragedy that had national implications with the mass shooting and the loss of life of 13 individuals. here we are just a few hours later
5:22 pm
now talking about another crisis right here in thousand oaks. 500 miles north paradise is suffering as well. these abandoned cars give just a hint of the terror as people fled. for block after block this is all that remains of paradise. and you can tell that the fire burned with an intense voracity because very little of what lies in these charred remains is recognisable. president trump declared a state of emergency, freeing up resources to help. then he blamed california's forestry management and threatened to withhold funding from the state. here, though, politics may have to wait. the crisis is not over. paradise is hell. james cook, bbc news, paradise in california. a one—year—old boy and three adults have died in a crash with a car, being pursued by police. they were in a people carrier
5:23 pm
when it collided with a black vw golf in sheffield yesterday evening. three other passengers in the people carrier were injured. the three men being pursued have been arrested, and the independent 0ffice of police conduct has begun an inquiry. the french president has agreed with donald trump that europe needs to pay more towards nato. the two leaders have been meeting in paris, ahead of commemorations, marking the centenary of the armistice that ended the first world war. emmanuel macron and the german chancellor angela merkel, have held a symbolic meeting of reconcilation, in the place where the armistice was signed. 0ur diplomatic correspondent james landale reports. 100 years ago donations were still at war. today under damp, grey sky, president macron france and chancellor merkel of germany came to a forest clearing north of paris where the great war finally came to
5:24 pm
an end. it was here in a secluded train carriage that the armistice was agreed, ending hostilities across europe. in a replica of that carries, the two leaders sat where the allied and german delegations had negotiated the agreement, committing their nations once again to peace. these images are all the more poignant because the last german chancellor to walk these pass was adolf hitler, who came here to accept the surrender of france in world war ii, hoping to avenge the deal here two decades before. after the armistice was signed, the allied delegation came back here to the elysee palace, and according to one accountjoined elysee palace, and according to one account joined hands and elysee palace, and according to one accountjoined hands and danced ring ring of roses with the french prime minister. it was not quite so cheerful today. president trump
5:25 pm
arrived in paris saying it had been insulting of emmanuel macron to say europe needed protecting from the united states. but today they put on smiles for the cameras and agreed europe should do more to share the burden of its defence. it is unfair to have european security today beano should just buy the united states. we need to share the burden more. when you talk about burden sharing you know what my attitude has been and it is important for the usa that you are stronger. behind the smiles the divisions remain. president macron was the armistice centenary president macron was the armistice ce nte nary to president macron was the armistice centenary to be a reminder of the dangers of an chat nationalism. but for the man standing behind him it isa for the man standing behind him it is a core belief that national interest should come first. that is the context for this weekend's events. tomorrow behind me more than 50 world leaders will gather to mark the ceremony of the centenary of the
5:26 pm
armistice. in the afternoon they will attend a peace forum hosted by president macron to discuss new ways that countries around the world can cooperate. 0ne that countries around the world can cooperate. one notable absence, donaldj cooperate. one notable absence, donald j trump. james langdale cooperate. one notable absence, donaldj trump. james langdale in paris. thousands of leicester city fans have taken part in a memorial walk, in honour of the club's owner, who died along with four others in a helicopter crash, at the king power stadium two weeks ago. it's the first home game since the accident. here's andy swiss. the city united in tribute, thousands walking as one as the customary strolled to the stadium became a memorial march. the leicester fa ns became a memorial march. the leicester fans were even joined by some players, including england international harry maguire, an entire club and community honouring the man they simply called the boss. without him not a lot of the club would have been possible, so it is a
5:27 pm
little thank you. he just kept giving and giving and did not expect anything in exchange. for thousands of leicester fans simply getting here to the ground has been a very poignant experience, but this is just the start of the tributes to the man who transformed this club. inside each fan received a special memorial scarf and for all, including former manager claudio ranieri, the emotions were plain to see. especially for vichai srivaddhanaprabha's son, a reminder of this very personal tragedy. and after the players emerged before the home fans for the first time since the accident, the stadium fell silent. after such high emotion the leicester players were unable to produce a victory, drawing 0—0 with burnley, but today was not about a
5:28 pm
result. for this proud club it was about remembrance. for this proud club it was about remembrance. it's the second weekend of autumn international rugby, and it was a tense match for england, as they lost to new zealand by a single point. meanwhile, at murrayfield scotland beat fiji, 54—17. our sports editor was at the england match at twickenham and sent this report. new zealand represents the ultimate test in rugby, perhaps in all of sport, but it was cleared twickenham was in no mood to be intimidated. the symbol of all—black potency was drowned out amid the downpour. not for six years had england tasted victory against the all blacks, but within two minutes they were ahead, chris ashton celebrating his recall to the team in perfect fashion. england were not satisfied, an unstoppable more ending with dylan hartley crashing over. 15—0 down, the world was like number one team was rattled but our response was
5:29 pm
inevitable. this sleight of hand putting damian mckenzie through. game on. the momentum had shifted. new zealand claimed the lead after the restart through the boot of barrett. but in a tight match it was england who appeared to have made the decisive breakthrough, a charge down by courtney lawes picked up by the superb sam underhill. but as twickenham celebrated the referee looked again, the try disallowed for offside. england cruelly denied what would have been a historic victory. new zealand win again, albeit by just a point. not much was expected of england coming into these autumn internationals amid poor form and injuries, but after beating south africa and performance against new zealand to build on, the mood among the team and their has lifted. and their has lifted. that's it. there's more throughout the evening on the bbc news channel, and i'll be back with the late news at ten past ten. hello, this is bbc news
5:30 pm
with me, chris rogers. the headlines: one of the key commemorations to mark 100 years since the end of the first world war is taking place in compiegne, north of paris. some 70 world leaders are in france for the centenary. the french president emmanuel macron and german chancellor angela merkel signed a book of remembrance inside a railway carriage identical to the one where the original ceasefire was sealed in 1918. four people, including a one—year—old baby, have died after a people carrier was hit by a car in sheffield that had earlier been pursued by police. the former transport minister jojohnson says more ministers may resign over the prime minister's brexit plans and voters were sold a "false prospectus" in the referendum. thousands of leicester city fans have taken part in a memorial walk in honour of those killed
5:31 pm
in the helicopter crash outside the club's stadium two weeks ago. heavenly father, please help us. please help us to be safe. driving through the inferno. at least nine people are killed and a quarter of a million forced to flee their homes as wildfires burn out of control across california. sport, and for a full round—up from the bbc sport centre, here's lizzie greenwood—hughes. good evening. we're starting with rugby union's autumn internationals, and at twickenham, it was a case of so near, yet so far for england as they came heartbreakingly close to beating the all blacks for the first time in six years. england started well. tries from chris ashton and dylen hartley giving them a 15—0 lead after 25 minutes. ashton making his first international start since 2014. but as the weather deteriorated in london, new zealand came back,
5:32 pm
building momentum to make it 15—10 at half—time, and then beauden barrett edged the all blacks ahead kicking a drop goal and a penalty. england's sam underhill thought he'd helped england to a rare victory over the world champions with a late breakaway try, but it was ruled offside and the scored stayed 16—15. in the er a top class team obviously. they are number one team in the world at the minute. i did not feel at any moment in that game is that we did not believe that we we re is that we did not believe that we were going to win it. unfortunately, were going to win it. unfortunately, we did not come out on the right side. better news for scotland, who had a magnificent 54—17 home victory over a strong fiji side. they scored eight tries and six conversions at murrayfield, as adam wild reports. music merryfield is a stage that is
5:33 pm
rare to want passion or pride. the performances have amassed. scotland save their best for their home fans but here was a clash of rugby cultures. fiji, the game's great entertainers, though they are much more than that. the challenge laid down, scotland did not so much rise to it but burrow underneath. early tries from two other front row, a platform is set. but the fiji reputation is well earned. a glorious piece of action, one a try! dazzling in its times unplayable. incredible, absolutely brilliant! but the flashy stuff is a very well the discipline needed to. fiji down to 13 in scotland quick to use the space. from there, they would not be really troubled. tommy seymour in
5:34 pm
for a hat trick, the sixth driver scotland, beating fiji at their own spectacular game. finishing with a final flourish from adam hastings. now they were the entertainers. eight when it was effective but perhaps not quite like this. meanwhile, wales kicked—off against australia around ten minutes ago, looking for their first victory over the wallabies for a decade. it's still pointless in the opening stages at the principality stadium. ireland play argentina later tonight. meanwhile, wales women kicked off theirautumn campaign with a convincing 19—5 victory over south africa at cardiff arms park. rowland phillips‘ scored three tries in total, with jasmine joyce, sioned harries and carys phillips all crossing over. it's a big weekend in the premier league with the manchester derby tomorrow. there are five games today, and in the early kick—off, cardiff city secured only their second win of the season thanks to a last—minute goal against a ten—man brighton. austin halewood watched the action. cardiff facing relegation from the

championship when neil warnock turned —— took over. after 100 games, they are back in the premier league but struggling once again. just five points so far and an early goal the last thing they needed. brian headed into the lead after just five minutes. brighton in total control until a running from kadeem harris the spark cardiff needed. patterson there to knock him a third goal in five matches for the striker but a celebration not getting any better. after such a bright star, and only got worse for the seagulls. below is from dale stephens named a red card. brighton down to ten men. in the second half, cardiff at all the possession but not enough decision. attack after attack slipping by and the match looking destined for a draw until finally, a
5:36 pm
goal hammered home. neil warnick celebrating a century of matches in charge. a second wind of the season and the perfect present. we have to work so hard against the top class size, everyone we go up against. we have come on back quickly in the last 18 months. we cannot turn it down, got there but we have had to work very hard and in january as well. though we are getting better every game and is so all credit to the boys because it was a blow to go down that early goal. leicester—burnley finished goalless on an emotional day at the king power stadium. it's leicester's first home game since the fatal helicopter crash which killed five people, including the club's owner. elsewhere, newcastle beat bournemouth 2—1 to win consecutive premier league matches for the first time since april. salomon rondon scored twice in the first half to move his side up to 14th, while bournemouth stay sixth. in today's other games, huddersfield drew 1—1 with west ham. southampton—watford also finished

england's cricketers are celebrating their first overseas test win for 13 matches. it puts them 1—0 up in the best—of—three series. but coach trevor bayliss admits he has some selection dilemas ahead of the second match. we had been looking for two or three quys we had been looking for two or three guysin we had been looking for two or three guys in that position for a wild. 0bviously keaton has done well in this test match. bernie did not score any runs but he has been impressive around the group and the practise and in some of the practise games and the way he looked while he was mayor in his matches has been good. 0bviously, number three was mayor in his matches has been good. 0bviously, numberthree is was mayor in his matches has been good. 0bviously, number three is a position now thatjoe has dropped to numberfour. position now thatjoe has dropped to number four. so we will continue to search their i think. mono has had a few cha nces search their i think. mono has had a few chances they are at this stage but have not been able to take advantage of that. 0bviously, moe is
5:39 pm
advantage of that. 0bviously, moe is a guy who will be in the team somewhere. england's women are up against sri lanka in their opening game of the world t20 this evening. it gets under way in just over an hour. henry moeran has made the trip to st lucia for us. england go into this competition as one of the favourites. the 50 over champions looking to make it a double in this competition. their preparation ahead of the other has been farfrom ideal. warm—up matches have not quite gone the way up mark robinson had wanted. the weather here in st lucia has been farfrom ideal, meaning that practise against their first match against sri lanka has been limited. but perhaps the most crucial worry for england is the absence of a katherine brunt. the all rounder vastly experienced ina the all rounder vastly experienced in a hugely important memberfor a number of years aggravated a back injury in the final match against india. she misses a turn in england of how important she is for this side. she is a massive part of the side. she is a massive part of the side on and off the pitch. 0n the
5:40 pm
pitch, she is a brilliant all rounder, baths in the top six and bolted stopovers in t20. she is hard to replace. you feel like you need to replace. you feel like you need to players to do that. but a bit of cover and i'm confident with the girls coming into the side are going to do girls coming into the side are going todoa girls coming into the side are going to do a good job. no question about it, english and have aspirations of making the semifinals at the very least. anything less than that will be seen as a major disappointment for the side. but it will not be easy. t—20 cricket means the odd upset can be thrown up. the condensed format me itjust takes one click to have a good diet and a bowler to struggle and you could find yourself on the receiving end ofa find yourself on the receiving end of a shock result. a window that have to be careful and professional and without some of their big—name players, they need others to stand up players, they need others to stand up and ensure they make a name for themselves and can give themselves themselves and can give themselves the best chance of claiming that trophy. tony bellew will fight for the last time tonight as he bids to become the first briton to hold four world boxing belts in one weight division. he's up against the unbeaten
5:41 pm
ukrainian 0leksander usyk at the manchester arena, and as the firm underdog, bellew says he's ready to shock the world. iam i am honoured and humbled that so many people around the world are supporting me. somebody in my country, my city. ifeel like it is all, one so it is kind of overwhelming. but i am... i cannot believe it happening. thank you. i will give my soul in that ring. i will give my soul in that ring. i will give my soul. in the process of giving my soul, i will take is. elliott browne took the silver medal at the tumbling world championships in russia. already a world bronze medallist from last year, browne went one better in st petersburg. his second attempt, explosive and techically brilliant to take his total to 77.9 points for second place behind russia's vadim afanasev. britain's kristof willerton just missed out on the podium, finishing fourth. that's all the sport for now.

it's time for the film review here on bbc news. hello, and welcome to the film review on bbc news. to take us through this week's cinema releases is mark kermode. so, mark, what do we have this week? we have wildlife, the directorial debut from paul dano. we have the grinch, another retelling of a classic tale. and 0verlord, a war movie—cum—horror movie. so wildlife, this is based on a richard ford novel. does it do itjustice? i haven't read the novel, have you read it? i did a while ago, it is quite
5:43 pm
short, but very good. it's always a plus. so it's set in 1960s montana, and ed 0xenbould is this young kid who's awkward and ill at ease with the world, and his parents are on the brink of a marital crisis. they have moved from town to town, they have ended up here, they have evidently moved many times, and jerry has got a good job, but he loses it. when he is offered it back again, his pride is too great and he won't take it. he announces what he will do is become one of the people fighting the wildfires that are up in the mountains, that are threatening montana, which his wife thinks is a crazy idea. here's a clip. i put my name on a list, i waited for my chance and now they finally have a place for me. you don't know anything about fires, you'll get burned up. i've been reading about them, i know enough. you've been reading about them?
5:44 pm
you've been studying up? don't turn my words on me, jean. dad, what's going on? your father's leaving us to go and fight those wildfires. what? dad, why? he won't take a job in a grocery store, but he'll go out with a bunch of deadbeats and risk getting killed. what does it pay? what? what does it pay? dollar an hour. oh, my god. you don't have to do this. i know, but it won't be for long. not if you get yourself killed. it's going to snow, the fire's going to go out... what if it doesn't? what if it never snows at all? joel, what do you think? is this a bad idea? don't ask him, he'll approve of anything. he's almost grown, he has a say in what happens in this family. what happens if your father gets burned up and you never see him again? don't say that, jean. you can't keep running every time something doesn't go your way. all right. dad, please. you don't know what i'm doing. don't i? i'm a grown woman, jerry, why don't you act like a grown man. and it looks like a great performance from carey mulligan. and also from jake gyllenhaal. that line when she says, "why don't you behave like a grown man?" she's a mother, but
5:45 pm
she wants to be young. he is a father, but he says he has this noise in his head he has to get away from. at the centre is this child watching, often watching silently, seeing it play out. what i like most about this is you get tiny intimate domestic detail against this kind of backdrop of the montana sky, which is so popular with film—makers because it's so awe—inspiring. you have the mountains, the fire, these raging things, but it is the domestic detail that makes you believe in them. there is a lot in ed 0xenbould's face, you see a lot of paul dano, that look of slightly bewildered, slightly on the back foot, slightly wrong—footed. it's a very low—key movie, it has a lovely score that is melancholy and breaks out the emotion in every scene, but i really liked it because i like the fact it's a movie that is brave enough not to actually have to overstep the bounds. it understands it's a small drama about a family coming apart in this
5:46 pm
huge cinematic setting. i would be interested to know what you think, having read the book. i haven't read it, and the film impressed me very much. have a look at it and report back to me. you read the book, i'll watch the film. deal, done. right, rather different is the grinch. features another british star, benedict cumberbatch. a long way from sherlock. it features his voice. so this is the umpteenth retelling of the grinch. many people have an affection, or some not, for the jim carrey version. there is the 1960s tv special with the voice of boris karloff. it's very shiny, very bouncy, it's peppy, and i think it will act as a moderate diversion. it doesn't bring anything particularly new to the tale. there isn't anything about this, this is the version that brings out this element or this,
5:47 pm
it'sjust, it'sjust fine. it's remarkably unremarkable. weirdly enough, it comes with a minions short. i knew that things weren't going that well for me when i didn't laugh at the minions short. i have been laughing at minions for years, so i think it's fine, but it, i mean the thing i said, it's not so much bah humbug as bah ho—humbug. it's all right. it might divert attention for a while, but you would have to be undemanding. there's nothing that makes you think you are looking at it afresh. 0verlord, this is a sort of horror set in the second world war. it starts off as a war movie, you would think it was a war movie. we have paratroopers, they're landing in occupied france. they have a mission to take down a transmitting tower in a church steeple. they land, they get broken up, there is a few of them get together and somebody says,
5:48 pm
"look, this looks unusual. is it a dog, an animal? that doesn't look right." the next thing they know they have discovered in the bowels of the church something unnatural. here's a clip. what happened there? found him outside the church. grabbed me as soon as i hit the ground. outside the church? how did you get inside the church? dead bodies. slow down, slow down. doing experiments on them in there. they're doing experiments on the villagers. what? burning people with these flamethrowe rs, and they're still moving the bodies. cocoon things. did you get eyes on the tower compound? she doesn't have a body, and she's still talking. did you get eyes on the tower compound? it's below the ground, but there's more than that down there. 0k.
5:49 pm
what the hell is that? in that scene, you see between the two, it's as if one is in a war movie and one is in a horror movie. it's very full—on. if, like me, you are a horrorfan, lived through the video nasty era, i saw the stuart gordon films, so for me there is a nostalgic charm seeing a full—blooded horror movie. what is interesting is that the cast play it completely straight. so if you didn't know beforehand, you could watch the first half an hour thinking this is literally just a war movie. when it starts to turn, it has all the more impact. people have said it's like from dusk till dawn, that was a much more broken back structure. it's not for everybody, it's very full on. jj abrams is the producer behind it.
5:50 pm
i mean, it starts with this really over the top sequence of the planes going over and coming out and the planes are getting attacked. it reminded me of pearl harbor when there is that scene where the camera falls from the plane. it's a movie that starts with everything turned up to 11 and then goes up from there. subtlety and nuance is not necessarily on the menu. the screening room i saw it in was fantastically loud. i like that it goes from one genre to another. if like me, you grew up with the stuart gordon movies, which i imagine you didn't... of course not. i liked pearl harbor, by the way. it's terrible. i like terrible films. that one shot is really good. best out at the moment? yes, your homework was to go and see widows. i haven't, i've let you down. sorry, sir. it's really great.
5:51 pm
i don't want you feel this is an obligation, you will thank me. it's really good. it's based on the tv series from the 1980s, brilliant cast. every single cast member does a greatjob. it's really gripping and really cinematic and very moving. it will be a big awards contender, you will thank me. i always do. i will read the book. you will always thank me. best dvd. first reformed. this is a real return to form for paul schrader. he has made a few bad movies, so this is ethan hawke as an ex—military chap facing a crisis of faith and his paths cross with those of an ecoterrorist. it's all the schrader themes of angst and guilt and the desire for redemption, but it's really beautifully done. there are moments when it looks like a drier movie.
5:52 pm
ethan hawke is well cast. what i liked, having been off the boilfor a while, it's good to see schrader back on home ground. this is what he does well. he wrote taxi driver, he does this really well. it's terrific. thank you very much indeed. a quick reminder before we go that you'll find more film news and reviews from across the bbc online at bbc.co.uk/markkermode. and you can find all our previous programmes on the bbc iplayer. that's it for this week, though. thanks for watching. goodbye. hello there. the weekend in a word is mixed. it's one of those weekends where for one moment, you have blue skies overhead, and look at this beautiful picture from a weather watcher in moray, but then we see
5:53 pm
a shower passing through. and that's how it looks in the garden in berkshire a little bit earlier on. and on the satellite picture, well, you can this stripe of cloud here. that brought heavy rain and strong winds last night. behind that, these speckled clouds feeding in the from the west indicative of those showers. the radar picture from a little bit earlier on today shows that the showers started off across the southwest, wales, clipping into northern ireland, northwest england, southwest scotland, but they became increasingly widespread as the afternoon went on. some of them heavy, some of them thundery and we continue to see these showers feeding through as we head through this evening and tonight. there will always be some good clear spells between the showers. and across northern scotland, where the winds fall fairly light, with those clear skies overhead, it could just get cold enough in a few spots for a touch of frost, but most places holding up between 4—10 degrees. so tomorrow is of course armistice day, remembrance sunday, and the weatherjust continues in the same vein. some sunny spells, yes, but heavy showers as well. these showers likely to gang together into bands, so one band of showers drifting
5:54 pm
northwards across england and wales through the morning clipping into southwest scotland as well. behind that, some sunny spells, but also some further showers pushing in, most especially for the south coast of england, parts of the south and west of wales. better chance of staying dry further inland until you reach east anglia, northern england, southwest scotland. here, our band of cloud and showery rain will be drifting through. but for northern ireland, but also for northern parts of scotland, i think these are the areas where we're most likely to be dry at 11am if you're heading out to any of the commemorations. and then as we head deeper into sunday, through the afternoon, we continue to see these showers feeding through. this band of showers is likely to turn things really quite wet across northern ireland for the very end of the day. temperatures between 10—14 degrees, still fairly breezy. now as we move out of sunday into monday, low pressure's still in charge of the scene. this little frontal system here may just feed some rain into the far southeast of england. a bit of uncertainty about that. but for all intents and purposes on monday and tuesday, we stick with sunshine and showers.
5:55 pm
some rain in the north on wednesday, but gradually drying up towards the end of the week, and that brings the potential for some fog. this is bbc news. the headlines at 6pm: one of the key commemorations to mark 100 years since the end of the first world war has taken place in france. some 70 world leaders are in france for the centenary. the former transport minister, jojohnson, says more ministers may resign over the prime minister's brexit plans and voters were sold a "false prospectus" in the referendum. we're not going to get greater sovereignty, we're going to cede sovereignty, we're going to lose control over how rules affecting swathes of our economy are shaped. it's not the british parliament that's going to gain control from this, it's the french parliament, the german parliament, and the european parliament. four people — including a one—year—old baby — have died when a people carrier was hit by a car in sheffield that had earlier been pursued by police.
