9:01 am
brexit negotiators have expressed "cautious optimism" after another late night of talks in brussels. the prime minister will update her cabinet together on her brexit plan this morning , as talks enter their final phase. tomorrow is believed to be the last day for an agreement leading to a summit this month to approve the withdrawal agreement. in a speech last night, theresa may said the process was in the "end game" but acknowledged that significant issues remained. the negotiations for our departure are now in the endgame, and we are working extremely hard through the night to make progress on remaining issues in the withdrawal agreement which are significant. i will not compromise on what people voted for in the referendum. this will not be an agreement at any cost. let's get the thoughts
9:02 am
now of our assistant political editor — norman smith — whojoins me now from downing street. a cabinet meeting this morning, not the cabinet meeting to approve the deal which we have speculated about there well. where has this cautious optimism come from? government sources aware of the break—up or breakdown of the meeting between the eu british negotiators last night. the meeting was very positive, lots of optimistic noises in part because they have managed to narrow down the area of disagreement to one substantive unresolved issue, which is the exit mechanism from the backstop arrangement which would keep as in a customs arrangements
9:03 am
with the eu. that seems to be the fundamental remaining difficulty. i understand there is an acceptance on the eu side that there has to be some way for britain to leave the customs arrangements, they don't wa nt customs arrangements, they don't want britain to be permanently in that arrangement because they believe the deal would be too good for the uk if that was the case. so they also want an excellent mechanism. the difficulty is finding some sort of formulation which will not leave the uk beholden to the eu, but at the same time will not give the uk complete and total control of the uk complete and total control of the process. what i think is perhaps proving the toughest nut to crack is an eu insistence that there should be some sort of role oversight for the european court ofjustice. why thatis the european court ofjustice. why that is difficult from the british government's perspective is it is one of mrs may ‘s blinds, it seems to be inconceivable that any proposal including an oversight role for the european court ofjustice
9:04 am
would be unacceptable to the cabinet and too many tory mps. so some way has to be found of modifying that. it may come down to bury, very clever language in the end. which is why there have been calls for downing street to publish its legal advice on the backstop. albeit, the mood music is positive. listen to the cabinet office minister david lidington this morning. —— david lidington. lidington this morning. -- david lidington. iwould lidington this morning. -- david lidington. i would say the mood is cautious optimism, we're down to a small number of really difficult issues. the negotiators work long into the night, last night they were up —— worked along into they were up —— worked along into the night last night, had been up until 345 the night before. it is not a deal at any price, but cautious optimism on our side and brussels side. what compounds mrs may's
9:05 am
difficulties is not just what compounds mrs may's difficulties is notjust the large number of ardent brexiteers on her backbenchers but within cabinet there are signs of considerable disquiet about the way this agreement might be going. last night liam fox held another meeting for some of the more hardline brexiteers in cabinet to discuss their strategy. my senses at the moment, there is no clear move to, as it were, revolt against mrs may's plans but there is a good deal of anxiety and trepidation and nervousness. i think we will get a sense of certainly the parliamentary difficulties mrs may could face, because later today there is likely to bea because later today there is likely to be a vote in parliament where we could see labour mps and possibly tory brexiteers siding together to try to force the government to publish its legal advice. shami chakrabarti, publish its legal advice. shami chakra barti, the shadow publish its legal advice. shami chakrabarti, the shadow attorney general, this morning urged mps are
9:06 am
all sides to bacca labour in their motion. i think there is a realistic prospect, a good chance of this patent today because of the constitutional principle. because i think leavers and remainers, conservatives and labour members of the house of commons could support this in principle, it is about parliamentary sovereignty, ultimately. i have a suspicion that may not happen, there are signs of some manoeuvring in the commons with the tory brexiteers putting down their own motion alongside the labour one, calling for the partial publication of the legal advice. and you half wonder whether the government might think we will go along with that to avoid the potential revolt by some of their own backbenchers. in terms of absolute deadlines, what are we talking about in terms of an absolute deadline for a deal being done? the view in downing street is that
9:07 am
tomorrow is probably the last time if there is to be an eu summit this november, there would have to be some sort of deal done in brussels tomorrow which could potentially be put to cabinet on thursday. it will be tight but you could still have an eu summit on november 25. why downing street is keen for that above all is that it opens up the possibility of the crucial, meaningful vote in the house of commons before christmas. and they wa nt commons before christmas. and they want that, i think, largely for psychological reasons in that i think they believe their chances of getting the deal through parliament is perhaps better if it is all right up is perhaps better if it is all right up against the wire at christmas and there is a general sense amongst mps that they want this done and over at the end of the year, and maybe that will encourage more mps to back mrs may. tomorrow is really when we have to have some sort of deal reached
9:08 am
which could be put to the cabinet. thank you very much for that, norman. if you want to find out more about the various terms surrounding brexit then you can go to the bbc news website and look for the brexit jargon buster, your guide to the key terms. and we will have more on that from chris morris undercuts a reality check team at around 945. —— from chris morris and our reality check team. israel says air strikes have targeted more than one hundred sites across gaza, including the military intelligence headquarters of hamas. meanwhile, palestinian militants have fired at least three hundred and seventy rockets into southern israel, with one civilian found dead in the rubble of a building in ashkelon. five palestinians have been killed in gaza, with around a dozen injuries reported. four of the dead are confirmed as members of militant groups — palestinians say the fifth was a farmer.
9:09 am
the latest round of violence began on sunday when a covert israeli mission was exposed in gaza. due to the secrecy of the operation, israel has not revealed specific details about the mission. the operation has sparked one of the most serious rounds of fighting between the two sides since israel and hamas fought a war in 2014. an author and campaigner has come forward as the woman allegedly offered a peerage by a member of the house of lords in exchange for sex. lord lester, a former liberal democrat frontbencher who's 82, denies the claims made by women's rights campaigner jasvinder sanghera. the lords' privileges and conduct committee, which investigated, is recommending to peers that he be suspended until 2022. culling badgers only has a modest effect in reducing the number of cases of tb in cattle, according to a scientific review commissioned by the government. the report warns that if the culling programme is extended it could result in the death of 40,000 badgers a year. it's urged the government to accelerate the development of non lethal controls such as vaccination. another 13 bodies have been
9:10 am
discovered in and around the town of paradise in northern california, confirming fears that the wildfire which destroyed the town was the worst in the history of the state. at least 42 people are now known to have died there and more than 220 people are missing. another two died in a fire in southern california. the wildfires in california have now been declared the worst in the state's history. our correspondent dan johnson sent us the latest from southern california. well, this is the latest fire teams have had to deal with, an intense blaze on this hillside here. they'rejust bringing in more workers now to try to stop it flaring up again, to stop it spreading. because if you take a look down into the valley, you can see how close this fire came to the homes here, to this neighbourhood. and that's why there are so many firefighters here on the ground, and in the air as well.
9:11 am
they've been dumping water and powder to try and put this fire out. this embankment was completely ablaze in the last hour, and the people who live here have been on their roofs with their garden hoses, trying to protect their homes if the flames spread any further. the winds here are so warm and so dry that the fires have been driven over the hills and through the countryside is and communities here. we've seen entire neighbourhoods over the hill that have been completely destroyed. people have been going back this morning to see what's left of their homes, and in some cases it is not very much at all. we will go to the hills west of the san fernando valley. cbs correspondent chris martinezjoins us from cala basas in california. utter devastation behind you. in that community, is everyone accounted for or have there been
9:12 am
fatalities? there have been two fatalities? there have been two fatalities in this county, the only two fatalities associated with the fire burning in southern california. the other 40 debts are associated with the fire in northern california. in this neighbourhood, oi’ california. in this neighbourhood, or this area, calabasas, california. in this neighbourhood, orthis area, calabasas, dozens california. in this neighbourhood, or this area, calabasas, dozens of homes were destroyed. the fire burning here at this point is connected to at least 400 or so homes that have been destroyed, and thatis homes that have been destroyed, and that is not the damaged homes, those are the homes we know are destroyed. and we want to point out that that is an estimate, firefighters are still trying to get into certain neighbourhoods and areas that were burned out so we do not yet have an accurate count in terms of the damage in terms of homes or businesses, and the concern is that when all is said, the death toll between this fire and the fire north will rise. president trump has now declared a
9:13 am
major disaster in this area, what sort of difference will that make to the effort there, and do people feel that has come a bit too late? well, that will help expedite federalfunding well, that will help expedite federal funding and aid well, that will help expedite federalfunding and aid to well, that will help expedite federal funding and aid to people here who have been affected by these fires. ona here who have been affected by these fires. on a more practical level at this moment, the fires are still raging, we're getting a lot of help from neighbouring states, around 8000 firefighters are working to build these fires out on lots of fire crews are coming in, mostly from western states, to help out with that effort, which is still the immediate concern because these fires are still burning. we are not yet really at a point where people are focusing on the recovery or rebuilding because most people have not gone home yet. there are tens of thousands of people still evacuated, many of them don't yet know what their neighbourhoods look like because they have not been able to get back to see them or there has
9:14 am
been no communication with that area. the recovery efforts here will ta ke area. the recovery efforts here will take quite some time, the immediate concern at this hour still remains the fire itself and while firefighters are making progress in terms of containing it, they think it will be at least a matter of days and perhaps a couple of weeks before both the fire here and up nose are fully contained. thank you very much for that update, chris martin is from cbs news. one of the uk's largest food suppliers has said it will start to stockpile food in preparation for brexit. premier foods said it will start to build stocks of ingredients to protect against delays at ports. business presenter dominic o'connelljoins us now. premier foods, mr kipling, oxo, bisto, well—known brands. why is it saying it wants to start
9:15 am
stockpiling? lots of people have been looking to premier foods to see what they would say about brexit and they have said nothing to date. this morning they had said we will start stockpiling raw materials, worried about disruptions ports. they said would cost £10 million over the three months in which they chose to do it, they did not say exactly when but they said they were thinking about it and would probably do it. it is about possible disruption from a no—deal brexit. it is one of the biggest food manufacturers in the uk, people are very alert to see what has happened. it comes on the back of strong warnings from supermarket bosses about their fears of having to stockpile food, the lack of chilled storage, the fa ct the lack of chilled storage, the fact they run to a one—week timetable when it comes to chilled and disposable food and they are concerned about what might happen with a no deal. they don't know what disruption there might be, the
9:16 am
uncertainty gives pause for thought. premier foods has its own deadlines. a couple of news dom ogogo to the news connected with it, they will explore the sales of the ambrosia custard brand and the chief executive will be going soon? he has been there for six years and a slightly controversial because he turned down a big—money takeover approach for premier foods a few yea rs approach for premier foods a few years ago, the shareholders have never forgiven years ago, the shareholders have neverforgiven him because their shares have language ever since. he will go in january shares have language ever since. he will go injanuary and they are selling ambrosia foods. one of the first ever orders for ambrosia, made in devon, was in the first world war, ordered forfront in devon, was in the first world war, ordered for front line troops, that was one of their first sales, 100 years ago in the first world war. 300 people are employed in their factory war. 300 people are employed in theirfactory in devon, thosejobs will almost certainly be safe but it is looking for a new owner. switching to in to serve under former shareholder has warned it could go the way of carillion? —— switching to interserve. it is a big
9:17 am
government contractor like carillion was, it has problem contracts, with carillion it was hospital construction, with interserve it has been these waste disposal plants. its share price went down 10% just yesterday, it has traded at 100 and 50p this year, yesterday it closed at 130 8p, quite a drop. lots of people are bidding on it to lower further. they do not necessarily think will go bust, they think it will go further lower. i am not yet sure that interserve is the new carillion. dominic o'connell, thank you. the headlines on bbc news... the prime minister will update her cabinet this hour on the latest developments in the brexit talks — uk and eu negotiators express "cautious optimism" after late—night talks. the number of people known to have died in the worst wildfire in california's history rises to 42. a woman who says
9:18 am
she was promised a peerage in return for sleeping with a member of the house of lords urges other victims of harassment to speak out. lord lester denies the claims. in sport, liverpool and england striker daniel sturridge has been charged with an alleged breach of football's betting rules, it relates toa football's betting rules, it relates to a rule which involves giving out information obtained as a result of his position. liverpool says that sturridge has categorically stated he has never gambled on football. former england, west ham and chelsea midfielderjoe cole has retired from football at 37. he has spent the last couple of years playing in tampa bay in america. england have won the first match at the women's world t20, beating bangladesh by seven wickets in a rain affected match in st lucia. i will be back in around half an
9:19 am
hour, see you then. the new director of public prosecutions has told the bbc there have been "failings in serious and sensitive cases". max hill said the crown prosecution service are committed to looking at cases where issues surrounding a failure to disclose evidence to the defence are raised. he's been speaking to martha kearney on today. let me give testament to my predecessor alison saunders. she lived during a time when the cps had to deliver about 30% cuts to its annual operating budget. that was an extremely difficult task but was managed. i take no credit for it. here we are now, i have 6000 highly dedicated, highly motivated staff... is that enough? ..that is the evidence of two weeks. we have to move our resources around according to the way that crime changes, the way that the caseload changes. but you would expect, and every government department will say this, but as we come up to the next government spending review, we will be marshalling our arguments to say has stretched we are.
9:20 am
—— how stretched we are. so you are stretched, so you would like more people? what i'm saying is that we are operating efficiently and at capacity, and within any annual period we have to resources around the organisation to make sure that we maintain that efficiency. we're joined now by the criminal barristerjerry hayes. he was the lawyer in the case of liam allan, the 22—year—old who was on trial for rape but whose case fell apart when a disc containing 40,000 messages from the complainant to mr allan was disclosed into the proceedings. thank you very much for coming along, you are the prosecuting counsel in this case bitumen should this information was revealed to avoid a very serious miscarriage of justice? —— but you ensured. avoid a very serious miscarriage of justice? -- but you ensured. the reason i went public was the elephant in the room, the lack of disclosure, not the problem with the cps but with the police, they were
9:21 am
not doing theirjob. i was very encouraged to hear max, he starts off with three good points. one, he has the goodwill of the criminal bar, here's a barrister himself, former chairman of the criminal bar association. then he has a gift from alison saunders, his predecessor, who said the place is a bit of a mess, we haven't got enough money. thirdly, he knows his way around whitehall. his big challenge is to get more money. he is new and inexperienced, this is the rutting season inexperienced, this is the rutting season of the permanent secretaries because they all want to get their beds into treasury, he will have to beds into treasury, he will have to be very tough and this is his challenge. at the time of the liam allan case last year you said the criminal justice system was notjust creaking, it was about to croak. will the money be forthcoming?m has to be, it is notjust the cps, it is the whole criminaljustice system. it is all very well people
9:22 am
saying we have a finder system in the world, we do if you are very rich and want to protect your organisation or you are very rich and get some money from your former spouse, but if you are a man be in charge with a serious offence it is problematical. i read somewhere that the cps lawyers had an average of 150 cases per lawyer at any one time. from the lawyers' perspective and a public perspective in terms of confidence, what does max hill need to do? restore confidence, and the best way is to get more resources. as you said, the cps are hopelessly overstretched, they are good guys doing hard work, they are buried tomorrow i is like at all. we are working in third world conditions but that is another story. that is what he needs, to get that money, and once he has directed the resources in the right way then we might have a change for the good. will that include delivering the
9:23 am
fundamental right to a fair trial? there is a national disclosure improvement plan, is it working or making progress? difficult to say. the instincts are right and the cps have a new disclosure manual which i read yesterday. excellent. but we need the resources to do it. don't forget disclosure, particularly in sensitive cases like rape and sexual offences, you have to look at social media. and sometimes in cases like the liam allan case, 60,000 messages have to be looked at and you need the resources. it has to be relevant to reasonable but it has to be done to reasonable but it has to be done to ensure a fair trial. thank you very much, good to talk to you. some doctors in rural areas are having to apply for extra funding in order to diagnose patients with autism, the royal college of gps has warned. the bbc‘s victoria derbyshire programme has spoken to families with autistic children who are struggling to cope with their violent outbursts. noel phillips‘ report contains some scenes you may find upsetting. there are times like this
9:24 am
whenjamie is like any other child his age, but he's not your typical seven—year—old. he has a rare form of autism known as pda, or pathological demand avoidance, meaning he goes to great lengths to avoid certain things that cause him to be anxious. he could drop a bit of paper on the floor, i could say, you know, "jamie, please could you pick that up?" rather than picking it up, because that's a demand, you could have half an hour plus meltdown. this home video recorded byjamie's mum shows what happens when anxiety can quickly turn into violence. it's early in the morning and jamie doesn't want to go to school. i really need this to stop. shocking to watch, but this gives you a glimpse of why his mum is desperate for help. when you have something like that, it's going to hurt me. if my son had, like, a more outward diagnosis, so if he had, you know, severe autism or if he had
9:25 am
some of those traits, spinning in circles, rocking, i think we would have got help. but because it's quite a hidden disability, you know, you're on your own, no one could see what was happening at home. he's chucked everything... jamie, who also has adhd, was just three years old when he started becoming violent. but a long wait for his diagnosis forced kate, who is now a single mum, to spend nearly £10,000 to get a private consultation. gps are usually the first part of contact when it comes to recognising autism. there are some parts of the country where gps have to apply for exceptional funding to get a diagnosis, or referred for a diagnosis, of autism. we don't have to get exceptional funding to get a diagnosis of heart disease or cancer or diabetes or depression. can i have it back?! this is what single mum erica is faced with most days. her ten—year—old daughter kierney has also been diagnosed with pda. as well as multiple anxiety
9:26 am
disorder and depression. when frustrated, as she frequently is, the family home becomes a place of chaos and violence. i feel really bad when i hurt my mum, and i don't want to hurt her. what do you think will happen if you don't get that help and support? i think i will end up getting arrested, which i don't want to happen. i just want to stay with my family. black eyes, bites and scratches. just of the injuries kierney has inflicted on her mum when reacting to the demands of everyday life. i'd love to be a normal, happy family, but until that support is there, it's still only going to be a dream. this former government minister wants the nhs to do more to help families. well, the nhs, fundamentally, together also with other public services — education, social care — are just massively failing these families. and in a way we are
9:27 am
abandoning families to try to cope on their own. the government acknowledges the need to improve services, especially at a time of increasing demand for children's mental health provisions. nhs england say they're investing £7 million into crisis care for young people. for some, it's support that can't come soon enough. and you can see more of noel‘s report in the victoria derbyshire show at 10am, on bbc two and the bbc news channel. now it's time for a look at the weather with carol. many others started with showers, but many will fade through the day to leave a dry, sunny and breezy day, quite mild for the time of day. a cold start in the highlands with
9:28 am
temperatures close to freezing but many are already climbing up nicely. lots of sunshine around, temperatures similar to yesterday, between ten and 14. later in the day, the cloud will thicken across western scotland and northern ireland, the rain will pick up and we will see rain come in. this will be heavy persistent across northern ireland, wales, northern england and scotland. notice how the cloud starts to break in the south. despite the fact we have clear skies, it will not be cold. temperatures towards the western pa rt of cold. temperatures towards the western part of the south are more representative of what we would expect as afternoon maximum temperatures, not overnight lows. through tomorrow, we watch all the rain continued to push north eastwards, it will try and brighten up eastwards, it will try and brighten up across eastwards, it will try and brighten up across northern ireland, wales and north—west england. the lion's share of the sunshine shows the amber is returning and it could reach 14, 15, maybe even 16 degrees tomorrow. hello, this is bbc news with annitta mcveigh..
9:29 am
the headlines... the prime minister is updating her cabinet on the state of play in the brexit talks — government sources say late night talks ended with cautious optimism on both sides. thirteen more bodies are recovered in california, bringing the death toll in the state's deadliest wildfire to 42. a woman who says she was promised a peerage in return for sleeping with a member of the house of lords urges other victims of harassment to speak out. lord lester denies the claims but is facing suspension from parliament. all wet wipes sold as "flushable" in the uk fail the water industry's disintegration tests. water companies say wipes cause blockages which cost millions to put right. and in sport... liverpool and england striker daniel sturridge is charged over an alleged breach of football's betting rules. time now for the morning briefing,
9:30 am
where we bring you up to speed on the stories people are watching, reading and sharing today. let's ta ke let's take a look at the bbc website and look at the most red section. the campaign group action on sugar is as king for a ban on freak shakes and all milkshakes with more than 300 calories in them. it says they found some containing what they described grotesque levels of sugar. the one that came top of the survey has 39 teaspoons of sugar in it if you can believe that or 1280 calories injust one milkshakes. another on the most red section is
9:31 am
numberfive, another on the most red section is number five, pilots report another on the most red section is numberfive, pilots report ufos on the irish coastguard the irish aviation tardy investigating reports of bright lights and ufos on the south west coast of ireland, reported on friday when a british airways pilot contacted shannon are traffic control wanting to know that there were military exercises in the area because there was something moving so fast. traffic controller said there no such exercises. that's being investigated. let's continue with the morning briefing. let's show you the most watched but first... the former foreign secretary, boris johnson, has urged the government to aid a pakistani christian woman facing threats to her life after being acquitted of blasphemy in her predominantly muslim homeland. mrjohnson said britain should give asylum to asia bibi, who was released following eight years on death row after being accused of insulting the prophet muhammad, sparking violent protests by hardliners.
9:32 am
speaking earlier to the today programme — asia bibi's lawyer saif—ul—mulook said no country had come forward to offer her a visa. the constitution of pakistan says thejudgement, order and the constitution of pakistan says the judgement, order and erections of the supreme court are final in the country and binding on the prime minister, all authorities, the army, everybody. and the supreme court of pakistan has declared on the 31st of october that charges against this lady were false and she was acquitted from the charges and she was free. but if it's being claimed there is the possibility the courts will be asked to re—examine and her case could that not be used as a reason to justify keeping her in pakistan? no, the world media is
9:33 am
giving totally false and fabricated information, the fact is until the supreme court says we suspend the earlierjudgement, untilthat supreme court says we suspend the earlier judgement, until that time, she cannot stop because of this review. if she cannot be stopped, for the reason she had given for leaving the country, why has she not left the country? so far no one is offering her a visa so the moment any country of the world offers her any country of the world offers her a visa she will be out. stars have been paying tribute to stan lee — who died aged 95 yesterday. the former president of marvel comics created some of comics books‘ most enduring characters including the fantastic four, spiderman, the incredible hulk and x—men among others.
9:34 am
jonathan ross told us about his legacy. he was, i mean he was a huge figure to all of us who are fans of comics particularly marvel comics, always my favourite cause of his style of dialogue and the characters but the way he communicated with the fans in the pages of the common ducks, no one had done that before, he spoke of us, he knew how much we loved what he was doing and he kept us up—to—date and he sold himself as a hipster father figure, up—to—date and he sold himself as a hipsterfatherfigure, he was up—to—date and he sold himself as a hipster father figure, he was a progressive in the 60s, more than anyone else, he imbued marvel comics with the qualities it has today. the fa ct with the qualities it has today. the fact he took any of it seriously, he responded to fans who were perhaps dismissed by other comic companies as dust kids, i think that is partly reflected in the way he saw his own work, he was a frustrated novelist,
9:35 am
i heard the reason he changed his name was because he was saving that for when he got a chance to read the great american novel which of course never happened. but in a way he achieved something greater and think because he touched so many millions of people with his work and the legacy lives on now, it's a powerhouse in the entertainment industry. all wet wipes sold as "flushable" in the uk have so far failed the water industry's disintegration tests, the bbc has found. water companies say wet wipes don't break down and are causing blockages which cost millions to put right. manufacturers insist their test is adequate and say sewer blockages are caused by people putting non—flushable wipes down the toilet. we were looking earlier at the most red section of the website but now let's look at the most watched, another ufo story at number one, i don't know what it is today, lots of them around, tinkering kids make robots, planes and catapults, this
9:36 am
isa robots, planes and catapults, this is a story about primary schools in manchester, the children their building robots, planes, catapults and vehicles using their creativity and vehicles using their creativity and problem—solving skills. under a teaching approach dubbed tinkering. this is the royal academy of engineering at the university of manchester working with schools in the area of the past three years and they are capitalising on children's natural engineering skills. call it engineering, tinkering, it all looks very good. that's it for today's morning briefing. sport now and for a full round up, from the bbc sport centre, here's sally nugent. sell daniel sturridge, what is happening with him? good morning... daniel sturridge is in trouble with the fa over it's betting rules. the liverpool and england striker‘s been charged with misconduct, and it's to do with a rule around giving out information which has been "obtained
9:37 am
by virtue of his position", and is ”not publically available”. liverpool say sturridge has ”categorically stated” that he has never gambled on football. he has a couple of weeks to appeal against that charge. the former england, west ham and chelsea midfielderjoe cole has announced his retirment from football. he's 37, and has spent the last couple of years playing for the tampa bay rowdies in america. here he is scoring that brilliant goal for england at the 2006 world cup in germany. i feel very old, i was at this match! cole says his career has been "a dream come true", and hopes to stay in the game as a coach. and arsenal's danny welbeck has had a second operation on his broken ankle. he was badly injured in arsenal's draw with sporting lisbon in the europa league last week. manager unai emery says he has no idea if welbeck will be back playing this season. england have won their first match at the women's world t20. england's bowlers made short work
