as well, there could be a touch of frost but most places holding up 4—10 celsius. for tomorrow, armistice day, of course, we see a mix of sunshine and showers, tending to organise themselves into bands, one band of showers moving north across england and wales and scotland. a few showers chasing on behind, turning wet across northern ireland, and between the showers, some spells of sunshine and highs of 10—14. hello, this is bbc news. 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.

6:33 pm
it's one of the busiest days in the yearfor sport. lots of football, motor racing, cricket and boxing to come in the programme, but let's start with rugby and the autumn internationals. the odds looked to be stacked against england against the all—conquering all blacks. the home side, though, came agonisingly close to causing an upset. a disallowed try in the closing minutes cost them victory. the final score was england 15—new zealand 16. here's our sports editor dan roan. new zealand represents the ultimate test in a rugby, perhaps in all of us test in a rugby, perhaps in all of us poor but it was clear to get him was in no mood to be intimidated. the haka, symbol of all black potency, defiantly drowned out. not for six years in england tasted victory against the all blacks, but within two minutes, they were added. winner chris ashton celebrating his recall to the team in perfect fashion. england were not satisfied. i'm all ending with dylan hartley
6:34 pm
crashing over. 15—0 down, the number one team was rattled by a response was inevitable. beauden barrett's sleight—of—hand putting damian mckenzie through, game on. momentum had shifted. the delay the lead after the restart through the boot of barrett. in a tight match, and with time running yet, he was england who appeared to have made a decisive breakthrough. a charge—down by courtney lawes picked up by the superb sam underhill. as the stadiums of the referee looked again and the referee looked again and he tried eventually disallowed for offside. england cruelly denied what would have been a distorted victory. new zealand win again, albeit by just a point. they are a top class tea m just a point. they are a top class team obviously. they are number one tea m team obviously. they are number one team in the world at the minute. i did not feel at any moment in that game and that we did not believe that we were going to win it. and u nfortu nately we that we were going to win it. and unfortunately we did not come out on the right side. i thought you would
6:35 pm
really well. they scored points at every opportunity they got. we had to show a lot of character to come back and the team we got the last six minutes of the first half. not much expected of anyone coming into these autumn internationals amid poor form these autumn internationals amid poorform and these autumn internationals amid poor form and plenty of injuries. the pressure was mounting on coach eddiejones. but the pressure was mounting on coach eddie jones. but after beating the pressure was mounting on coach eddiejones. but after beating south africa and a performance against new zealand to build on, the mood among the team and fans as listed. a really emphatic victory for scotland against fiji after a tight first half. scotland were ahead 17—14 at the interval, but ran away with it in the second half. 54—17 was the final score. tommy seymour ran in three of scotland's eight tries and adam wild watched the match. music. murrayfield is a stage that is rare to want for passion or pride. the scottish performances have matched of late.
6:36 pm
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 of the front row, the platform is set. but the fiji reputation is well—earned. a glorious piece of action, what a try! dazzling, at times unplayable. incredible, absolutely brilliant! still the flashy stuff is all very well, but discipline is needed, too. fiji down to 13 men, and scotland quick to use the space. from there, they would not be really troubled. tommy seymour in for a hat trick, the sixth try for scotland, beating fiji at their own spectacular game. finishing with a final flourish from adam hastings. now they were the entertainers. a win was expected, but perhaps not quite like this. adam wild, bbc news.
6:37 pm
find incredible place to play rugby. on an incredible stadium here today. we knew it was going to be a tough test. a bounce back in international by test. a bounce back in international rugby is important and that they put on an incredible fight in the first half. we pulled away in the last 20 minutes and it was very pleasing. half. we pulled away in the last 20 minutes and it was very pleasingm there another level for so never good at next week woods we did that on the estimate for sure. went to go away and come back next week and recover. wales are in action against australia at the principality stadium, and it's been a case of leigh halfpenny's misfiring boot so far. he's had three attempts at goal, scored one and missed two. this was to take the lead going into half time, but unfortunately he couldn't direct it between the posts. it's in the early stages of the second half, with the score still 3—3.
6:38 pm
it's live on bbc 2 right now. ireland kicked off against argentina at 6:30pm at the aviva at the aviva stadium in dublin. 3-0 3—0 lead early there. there were emotional scenes at leicester city's king power stadium for the club's first home game since owner vichai srivaddhanaprabha and four others were killed in a helicopter crash outside the ground two weeks ago. most of the home fans turned up half an our early, with some having joined a 5000—to—1 march from the city centre to the game. scarves saying "mr chairman, forever in our hearts" were laid ready for the fans on seats and a special video tribute was played watched by his son aiyawatt. many supporters were moved to tears during the tribute as the stadium fell silent. over to lizzie now for news of what happened in that game and the rest of today's premier league action. thanks, just five games today because the top three are all playing tomorrow, including, of course,
6:39 pm
the manchester derby. but looking at today's action, we'll start with that match at leicester against burnley. it ended in a goalless draw, and whether or not the emotional strain had taken its toll on the leicester players we'll never know, but after starting well, they faded and the result was really secondary to the occasion. here are the managers, starting with leicester's claude puel. i thought the player performance because they play with the effort they gave, they are best in the situation. of course, it is a disappointment. we wanted to win this game. but i am proud about our performance and for our chairman. yeah, it is important that we give oui’ yeah, it is important that we give our best. and it was a lot of
6:40 pm
emotion today, yeah. it is quite obviously had a difficult week in eight challenging way. confident to prepare but they gave everything today and we had to try to match that. which we did. to get a point in a clean sheet which is typical in this league. the strange think this but the result really is irrelevant in the grand scheme of things after what has happened. i think the game is more about a show of respect from the less people for unfortunately an owner who has passed away. —— leicester. in the day's early match, cardiff pulled off a much—needed win at home to brighton. neil warnock‘s men had only won once in the league before today, but they came from behind to beat ten—man brighton. austin halewood reports. cardiff facing relegation from the championship when neil warnock 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. brighton headed into the lead after just five minutes. brighton in total control
6:41 pm
until a run from kadeem harris the spark cardiff needed. patterson there to knock in a third goal in five matches for the striker, but his celebration not getting any better. after such a bright start, it only got worse for the seagulls. a lunge from dale stephens deemed a red card. brighton down to ten men. in the second half, cardiff had all the possession, but not enough precision. attack after attack slipping by and the match looking destined for a draw until finally, a goal hammered home. neil warnock celebrating a century of matches in charge. a second win of the season, the perfect present. austin halewood, bbc news. we have to work so hard against the top class sides, everyone we go up against. we have come on that quickly
6:42 pm
in the last 18 months. we cannot turn it down, coming up here, but we have had to work very hard and in january as well. but we are getting better every game and it's all credit to the boys because it was a blow to go down that early goal. we are reliant on good decisions by the officials and that last goal is being shown to be offside. at that stage in the game and that comfortable a decision to make, i think, it makes it even harder. now onto newcastle against bournemouth, 2—1 the score at st james' park. the win was a relief to newcastle's manager rafa benitez, who'd lost three key players to injury leading up to this game. salomon rondon scored twice at st james park to give newcastle consecutive league wins for the first time since april. we said before that it was important
6:43 pm
to score the first and to win the first game. we did score the first goal, so confident when you play at home and the fans are behind the players. everything we were trying to do and try to explain to everyone , we to do and try to explain to everyone, we did really well. the fans appreciate that. they support the team and the players give everything so good news for us and we can carry on. disappointed with the first half in particular. i thought we were slow starters today and i get the crowd in the game that made it difficult for us. we did not do with them especially well. so you have a lot better and we created some good moments but it was not to be. west ham got a late equaliser at huddersfield. 1—1 the score at the john smith's stadium. it keeps huddersfield second—bottom, while west ham stay mid—table. let's hear from their manager manuel pelligrini. we found a goal but did not play
6:44 pm
well in the first half. as i said before, the game was played with a lot of intensity and you must live for every ball because they cross the shots and k everything. in second half, which rid of some chances and at least we tried better. four points in the way, i think this is positive. we are on the path. as isaid is positive. we are on the path. as i said before, we are in the race to leave three teams behind us and for this, we have other games ago. it was a good performance, especially in the first half. watford rescued a point at southampton, who haven't won since september, although charlie austin controversially had a second half goal disallowed. jose holebas' scored the equalizer for watford in the 82nd minute. southampton are hovering just above the relegation zone in 17th, incresing the pressure on saints manager mark hughes. we deserved the three points today.
6:45 pm
so to have it obviously compromised because the officials did not get the decision to write was really disappointing. and i'm a broken record and people think i am only met referees again i have been doing this a long time and i have a lot of reasons to do that if i am on us. it is not because they do on purpose, not because they want to go against us, because unfortunately they are not getting the key calls right. our idea was to drag a new win in but in the first half we started losing and after that we showed character and discipline. we were improving. maybe we could win in the la st improving. maybe we could win in the last part improving. maybe we could win in the la st pa rt of improving. maybe we could win in the last part of the game, but i think we created good chances as well. i think it was fair at one point. so here's today's results in full. crystal palace are playing tottenham, but plenty of you will be
6:46 pm
looking ahead to tomorrow, where liverpool v fulham, chelsea v everton, arsenal v wolves, manchester city v manchester united. the good game last 158 minutes on the clock there between crystal palace and tottenham. the big matches to tomorrow of course. the big manchester derby right here tomorrow, all the results here on bbc news. back to you, james. some thrilling matches in the championship this afternoon, including a late winner for norwich to give them a 11—3 win at home to millwall and move them to the top of the table. here are all the scores. birmingham and hull shared six goals. away wins for swansea, preston and aston villa. middlesbrough are second after a 2—0 victory at home to wigan. queen's park rangers'
6:47 pm
recent good run continues. they beat local rivals brentford, and there were draws at nottingham forest and reading. the first round proper of the fa cup kicked off this weekend, with 29 ties today and nine tomorrow. there have been two big shocks. yeovil lost 3—1 at home to non—league stockport county, and league 2 bottom club macclesfield lost 2—1 at maidstone. after holding off portsmouth for nearly half an hour, national league side maidenhead then went down 4—0 to the league one leaders at home. ben thompson opened the scoring for the vistors from inside the box. oliver hawkins doubled their lead before jamal lowe added a third with this turn and shotjust on the hour mark. david wheeler rounded off the scoring for pompey. fifth—tier side aldershot earned a replay against league one side bradford city. george fowler put them ahead early on before nathaniel knight—percival nodded home an equaliser 19 minutes from time. league 2 side swindon town
6:48 pm
left it fairly late against non—league york city. steven alzate slotted home the winner 15 minutes from time. 2—1 was the score. you can see the rest of today's results on the bbc sport website. now in the scottish premiership, hearts stay top despite losing 1—0 to kilmarnock. the bottom of the table clash between dundee and st mirren finished 1—1. stjohnstone move up to fouth after a 4—0 victory over hamilton academicals. celtic and rangers both play tomorrow. lewis hamilton will start on pole position for the brazilian grand prix after producing a stellar lap to outpace the ferraris in sao paolo. the session wasn't without drama for the briton, though, as ben croucher explains. sao paulo and interlaken is
6:49 pm
literally translated as between the la kes literally translated as between the lakes but a different kind of water wearing the teams today. so which tires to pay. they stay dry enough for the likes of lewis hamilton to get to the final part of qualified. with all drivers on the track at the same thing, they nearly tripped over each other. hamilton could get a penalty for this near miss. not so the track as percy ferraris put the time to beat but has often has been the case, hamilton dragged his mercedes just fractions faster. the 100% mercedes pole position in formula 1. awesome job! the job only half done. the next aim is to win for the first time ever after winning the title in the same season. now how about this for athleticism? elliott browne has powered his way to tumbling silver on the final day of the trampoline, tumbling and double mini—trampoline world championships in st petersburg, russia. already the reigning world bronze medallist, elliott went one better this year. kristof willerton of britain just
6:50 pm
missed a podium position, finishing in fourth. 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. they're looking to add the 20—overs crown to the one—day world title they won last year, but they'll face some tough competition from the likes of three—time winners australia and the reigning champions west indies, who are this year's hosts. 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 it, though, 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 for their first match against sri lanka has been limited. but perhaps the most crucial worry for england is the absence of katherine brunt.
6:51 pm
the all rounder, vastly experienced and a hugely important member for a number of years, aggravated a back injury in the final match against india. she misses a turn, and england know how important she is for this side. she is a massive part of the side on and off the pitch. on the pitch, she is a brilliant all rounder, bats in the top six and bowls the tough overs in t20. she is hard to replace. you feel like you need two players to do that. but we have a bit of cover and i'm confident that the girls coming into the side are going to do a good job. no question about it, english have aspirations of making the semi—finals at the very least. anything less than that will be seen as a major disappointment for the side. but it will not be easy. t20 cricket means the odd upset can be thrown up. the condensed format means itjust takes one cricketer to have a good day and a bowler to struggle, and you could find yourself on the receiving end of a shock result.
6:52 pm
england know they have to be careful and professional, and without some of their big—name players, they need others to stand up and ensure they make a name for themselves and give themselves the best chance of claiming that trophy. meanwhile, england's men have been enjoying a well—deserved day off after thrashing sri lanka in the first test. it was a comprehensive win, but england have some dilemmas over selection for the second test. usual wicket keeperjonny bairstow is fit again after missing the match through injury, but replacement ben foakes made an impressive century and there are still issues at the top of the batting order. coach trevor bayliss has hinted that moeen ali won't bat at number three in the second test after two failures in the first test. we have been looking for two or three guys in that position for a while. obviously, keaton has done well in this test match. burns 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 in his matches has been good.
6:53 pm
obviously, number three is a position now thatjoe has dropped to number four. so we will continue to search there, i think. moe has had a few chances there at this stage, but has not been able to take advantage of that. obviously, moe is a guy who will be in the team somewhere. now in manchester tonight, tony bellew will attempt to make boxing history. he's taking on the unbeaten ukrainian oleksandr usyk in the cruiserweight unification fight, trying to become the first briton to hold all four belts in a weight division. bellew says it'll be his last fight, but as boxing commentator steve bunce told me earlier, he's the out—and—out underdog and this is likely to be the hardest fight of his career. we are still a few hours away but i am already putting i hope somewhere in the top ten. that includes mike
6:54 pm
tyson fights. ricky hatton fights. windex lewis fights, enormous bites. it has tojoin windex lewis fights, enormous bites. it has to join them, even if it is a bad fight, it is still a big event. whether it is a brawl or slugfest, for not as an end in the last seconds of the 12 round, that is a fa ntasy, seconds of the 12 round, that is a fantasy, that happens in hollywood. whatever happens, we have a good technicalfog, it whatever happens, we have a good technical fog, it still becomes uneventful. in that case, tony bell you talking about retiring after this fight. why has he chosen someone so difficult for the swansong. i will tell you. when usyk won his last fight as someone asked him what he wanted to do next, he said you lived down the lens and he said you lived down the lens and he saidi said you lived down the lens and he said ifight said you lived down the lens and he said i fight bellew. said you lived down the lens and he said ifight bellew. he said you lived down the lens and he said i fight bellew. he was a holiday with his family, heard straightaway and i'm told this fight is just about done and dusted in about 90 minutes of the other fight
6:55 pm
ended. that is why. tony bellew likes a challenge. and if he goes on and does it. will he rank in the history of british spiders? iniesta be in the top five or ten of british boxers. a massive underdog against david haye, and maybe twice. in this fight, notjust david haye, and maybe twice. in this fight, not just an david haye, and maybe twice. in this fight, notjust an underdog but people are looking at usyk as the man who in18 people are looking at usyk as the man who in 18 months will the anthonyjoshua. this for usyk is a stepping stone and four bellew is a chance to make history. you will call this fight tonight. what a privilege. lucky man. predict, to make it the gruesome but let me hear it. i think usyk those two muscles of the takes a risk when he has to inboxis of the takes a risk when he has to inbox is really what he does not. i think that is what he will do tonight. the only thing that will make it really entertaining and maybe a big worry is that bellew
6:56 pm
does not know how to lose. we'll find out how ugly or not it will be. on tonight from 10:30pm. i can tell you that spurs is going crystal palace. they are in the lead about 20 minutes still to go at selhurst park. the final score and the action from that at 7:30pm. see you then. good evening. a bit of rain and therefore the cricket in the wendy's. it has been torrential, the rain across some parts, especially eastern england and southern scotland. we have seen some that it was the shots of rainbows and some areas gate showers altogether. for example, northern ireland and in moray. this is a whether water
6:57 pm
pictures in earlier it was beautiful blue skies and sparkling but look at what happened in berkshire. the reason for the showers is this spiralling area of low pressure. that is a vast area of low pressure occupying most of the eastern atla ntic occupying most of the eastern atlantic and will be with us for the rest of the day through the evening and overnight. this is where we have the showers at the moment. a mass of rain moving across scotland and he could see flashes of lightning here across southern and central and southeastern england. torrential downpour spirit of a few hours and then towards midnight, the were so that hopefully clearing to the north sea in the worst clearing from northern scotland. but it will be chilly night then. but when it falls live for navas: and northern ireland we re live for navas: and northern ireland were real estate a lot of shower so not only a love grass cost but the showers return across southern and western areas. tomorrow of course is armistice day and the commemorations
6:58 pm
will be getting off to a start quite early. but at the moment, the risk is really high of getting quite a soaking from those showers. the hope is it will move out of the way as we head towards 11 aem but there will will still be around. we will be gathering across the cenotaph and many other areas of england and wales so there will be some rain early on but it clears out all the way then. there will be some intense downpours of just what we have way then. there will be some intense downpours ofjust what we have seen today with hail, thunder and lightning coming into the central areas of scotland. you are perhaps in northern ireland and for central and northern scotland we have crisp and northern scotland we have crisp and chilly start. lots of sunshine around here but even these areas not exempt from a shower throughout the day tomorrow. the mass of showers we hope will clear out into the north sea and then it will be mostly southern and western areas exposed but it would be quite brisk in the afternoon of three in a more showers to northern ireland. so here perhaps escaping until after dark for most part. that lopressor closing in it through monday and more showers again across western parson did not
6:59 pm
have a dollop of rain fort kent and essex but hopefully fewer showers into monday and then the weather does settle down next week. bye—bye. this is bbc news. i'm carole walker. the headlines at 7pm: one of the key commemorations to mark 100 years since the end of the first world war takes place in the north of paris. some 70 world leaders are in france for the centenary. the former transport minister, jo johnson, 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
7:00 pm
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 child — have died when a people carrier was hit by a car in sheffield that had earlier been pursued by police.
