back at her long life. laughter. always in her place in the house of lords, always the same. so lucky to be here. as david cameron said, theyjust don't make politicians like that any more, and he meant it. wartime code—breaker, oldest woman ever to be a government minister, and even, after a long life, a youtube sensation. the grainy black—and—white photos tell of a colourful past. land girl on the farm of former pm david lloyd george, during world war ii. then a member of the near legendary code—breaking team at bletchley. churchill visited us. he said "you are the birds that laid the golden eggs, but never cackled." and that was the important thing, was that we never talked. never conventional though.
wife to a headmaster, one day, fully clothed, at the school pool... ijumped. and half the schooljumped in with me to save me. and my husband wouldn't speak to me for three weeks. why did you do it? just for the hell of it! she was made a peer in 1980, seemed proud of standing up to the iron lady, margaret thatcher. we were really good friends, but if i didn't agree with her about something, i said so. and that was very good for her. she chain—smoked her way through several government departments, and then came fame. telling her tales on prime time tv. i've had to sign a piece of paper in order to be on this show to say i wasn't pregnant. laughter. why the fame though? well, watch this. a tory peer suggesting she was a revered relic of world war ii. and her silent reply.
that picture went viral on youtube. complimentary tributes are normal. they're not always as warm as today's forjean trumpington. baroness trumpington, who's died at the age of 96. newsnight is coming up on bbc two with emily maitlis. here on bbc one, it's time for the news where you are... hello and welcome to sportsday. manchester city are through to the knockout stages of the champions league after a 2—2 draw at lyon. united are also in the last 16, but they needed a last minute winner against young boys.
and sol campbell will be the new manager at the english league's bottom club macclesfield town. hello and welcome to sportsday. manchester united and manchetser city have both booked their places in the last 16 of the champions league tonight. united did it with an injury time winner against swiss side young boys, while for city a point against lyon was enough to send them to the knockout stages. our sports correspondent david ornsteinjoins us now, the result will ease some of the pressure onjose mourinho but should united have done better in that match? certainly. against young boys, a
tea m certainly. against young boys, a team they beat 3—0 in switzerland in the perverse legs so to speak. they have also lost all of their matches in the group stage until tonight. 3-0. in the group stage until tonight. 3—0. united at old trafford their old fortress. it has not been that way of way. they have made a bit of a difficult start. they should have taken the lead through marcus rashford who missed three chances. also fellani missed one. jose mourinho made some changes. david de gea made a spectacular save for united. but fellani with a stoppage time winner. interesting celebrations from jose mourinho put united through to the knockout stage with a game to spare. a bit of a disappointing match. but it was a dramatic finish. let's talk about city. and for city, lyon have become a bit of a bogey team, taking only one point from them from a possible six. any complaints from pep guardiola's site? there were the team who bit manchester city earlier in the season manchester city earlier in the season and putting their only defeat
on them in any competition this season. on them in any competition this season. it was a great game and lyon, fantastic, their too with lyon nicking a reserved. maka deserved lead. a spectacular strike here. city hit straight back. he had been city's best player until that point. no stopping that header from the defender. it was that man again who put lyon back in front with what seemed a winner with only ten minutes to go. but again lyon switched off at the back and manchester city, well, we know how dangerous they are. guess who, sergio aguero, securing the point. that manchester city needed to join their local rivals united in the knockout phase with a game to spare. and happy city of manchester stadium. definitely. thank you very much forjoining us. we will stay with football. leicester are through to the quarterfinals of the league cup after beating southamton 6—5 on penalties at the king power stadium. the match had been rearranged from october following the death of leicester's owner and four others
in a helicopter crash outside the stadium. the game went to straight to penalties after finishing goalless in normal time. and after both teams' first five spotkicks went in, southampton‘s manolo gabbiadini's shot was saved, before leicester's nampalys mendy converted for the win. leeds have moved into the automatic promotion places in the championship after a late penalty save secured a 1—0 win against reading. leeds made the break through mid way through the second half when stuart dallas eventually fired home to make it 1—0. reading are desperate for points themselves at the bottom end of the second tier, but leeds goalkeeper bailey peacock—farrell saved their 88th minute spot kick to deny them a point. elsewhere, norwich stay top of the table despite a 0—0 draw at hull city, sheffield united went up to fourth by beating brentford, and middlesbrough were held to a 1—1 draw at preston. sol campbell has been appointed manager of the english football league's bottom side macclesfield town after agreeing an 18 month contract. the former england defender was in attendance for this evening
1—0 win against promotion chasing exeter — that's just their third win of the season — they're still three points adrift at the foot of league two. campbell had previously complained that his managerial career in england has been hampered by a lack of opportunity for black coaches. i'm very happy for him. i don't think he needs any advice. he was one of many managers. you knows his football. i would say he is a natural leader. and of course his deal, you have to discuss that, and his power —— his gil and his power. for all the teams he played in. i would suggest he would be great as a manager. boca juniors say they will go to the court of arbitration for sport to appeal if the second leg of their copa libertadores final against river plate is to go ahead.
it's after the organisation which runs south american football had said that the match will be played on the eighth or ninth december somewhere outside of argentina. the original fixture was postponed twice after boca players were injured in an attack on their team bus by riverfans, events which one former player said has ‘shamed' argentina. conmebol has said that the risk of violence means the match can't be played in the country but boca want river to be disqualified and the trophy awarded to them. for me it is cultural, and how you're going to change i don't know. i promise, i don't know how to change that. because it is so difficult for the politicians, it is so difficult for the people that try harder to change. but i think it is cultural. in the work we need to do is very tough. i'm not sure this is
going to change. in netball, england avoided a shock home defeat by uganda with a 50—116 win in the first of their three match series at liverpool's echo arena. the commonwealth champions took a nine—goal lead at half—time but an error—strewn third quarter allowed the ugandans back in. emily croydon was there. it was a happy homecoming for england tonight. but onlyjust. they saw the win but only after a late surge from uganda where having trailed seven goals they dramatically came back to level in the final quarter before england sealed the victory. it had all started well for the home side as they double marked uganda's much talked about shooter. england pulled out for a strong half—time lead. england head coach always talks about consistency, and the 3rd quarter was a bit scrappy from the home side as they let uganda build some really. from seven goals down, uganda got back on level terms in the last quarter. but with helen's experience in the shooting circle,
england pulled away to a four goal victory. a win for england but not quite as comfortable as they may have hoped. or indeed expected. but tonight was about a lot more than performance. it was about experiencing the world cup venue and connecting with the home fans after a long break from connecting with the home fans after a long breakfrom playing on home soil. that england will undoubtedly have a lot to think about ahead of the next two tests out in london. emily croydon, bbc news, liverpool. really proud about the players that come on. this is about opportunities, giving the people opportunities, giving the people opportunities to play against the schemes, see what style of play actually said these. i was actually quite pleased with some of the injection that actually happened. but there are some basic errors that we needed to take on. in rugby union, scotland's women slipped to an agonising three—point defeat to canada at scotstoun. canada, who are ranked fourth in the world, scored four tries to lead by three points in the final minutes. that left scotland captain lisa thompson with the opportunity to tie the game with this kick but it missed the posts. england women's cricket
captain heather knight says it would be great for the sport if a t20 competition was included in the commonwealth games. the icc has put in a bid for it to be played at the 2022 games in birmingham. i think it's a brilliant idea. i haven't seen women's netball team, these would've reached they got when they won the gold medal, i think it isa they won the gold medal, i think it is a logical step for the sport. i think it will be brilliant. it will get more girls laying the game globally i think. and i think it'll be quite special to be able to play in the commonwealth games. johnny bairstow has become the latest england cricketer to try his hand at the shortest form of the game. after returning to the test side and winning man of the match in colombo, he's signed a short—term deal with kerala knights in the t10 league which is being played in the uae. the team is captained by england one day skipper eoin morgan. and finally surfer stephanie gilmore has won a record equalling 7th women's world title. gilmore was confirmed as world champion at the season—ending maui pro when her only challenger, the american lakey peterson,
failed to progress past the early stages of the event. while at the same time, in maui 50 to 60 feet waves greeted competitors who were competing in the jaws challenge. after a number of serious wipeouts including this by south africa's grant baker organisers were forced to postpone the event until tuesday. the good news is that baker was assessed afterwards and wasn't seriously affected. that's all from sportsday. coming up in a moment, the papers. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be

data and how google look at your data and how google look at your data and locate you, use concerns about how facebook are currently aiding the news and what a dude "fake aiding the news and what a dude " fa ke news" aiding the news and what a dude "fake news" to whether or not facebook and the huge amount of data they hold around us could have been influencing global politics and caused violence in some countries. a lot of racist attacks. also may be smart away some general elections referendums, also was of old have gone around the globe. mark zuckerberg did income. a recent facebook executive to go —— richard allen. it is a very arresting image. mps from from countries that actually asking questions and he is not there. it is interesting. don andl not there. it is interesting. don and i come from different, whatever the word is, i don't mean political parties but probably more views of business and stuff. independently, not even the same way we have of joe's the same thing, have we not? i come from a little bit different from her on that. the reason i do. i think that these tech giants are out of control. i think they are letting
