this is bbc news i'm martine croxall. the headlines at 10: but there, unfortunately, were no such details in that e—mail. the number of dead after new zealand's two mosque theresa may calls on mps to make attacks rises to 50, an honourable compromise as the country's prime minister and back her brexit deal, says her office received a message from the suspected killer minutes before the attack. or risk never leaving the eu. nearly a0 flood warnings are in had it provided details that could have been acted place across britain after some on immediately, it would have been. areas had a month's worth but there, unfortunately, of rain injust21i hours. were no such details in that e—mail. scientists warn that the melting of sea ice in the arctic means new routes are being opened up theresa may calls on mps to make an ‘honourable compromise' as previously inaccessible and back her brexit deal, or risk never leaving the eu areas become open water. nearly a0 flood warnings are in place across britain, after some areas had a month's worth before the papers, sport and a full round up, from the bbc sport centre. of rain injust 2a hours. also in the next hour — the new formula 1 season has got investigating the effects under way in australia of climate change. with valterri bottas winning the first grand prix of the season. a distant third in the championship we join scientists in the arctic, and without a victory last year, where increasing rainfall he overtook his mercedes team—mate lewis hamilton and went on to win the race by more than 20 seconds. nick parrott was watching.
9:31 am
last year, ferrari's sebastian vettel was lewis hamilton's closest rival, but this time, the title fight could be much closer to home. hamilton's mercedes team—mate valtteri bottas could not win a race last year, but by the first corner in melbourne, this one was in the bag. the finn producing what he called the drive of his life to surge past the briton and then stroll around albert park. rule changes were supposed to produce closer racing, but much of the excitement was incidental. daniel ricardo ruined his first race for renault, misjudging how rough the off—field was. the feeling of summer down under was accompanied by charles leclerc mowing the lawn in his ferrari and carlos sainz stopping for a barbecue at the expense of his mclaren. the only excitement up front was red bull's max verstappen relegating vettel to fourth. winning by more than 20 seconds and claiming a bonus point for the fastest lap, bottas will be hoping he can finally step out of hamilton's shadow. nick parrott, bbc news.
9:32 am
wales have claimed the six nations after comprensively beating ireland in cardiff. after a perfect campaign, wales boss warren gatland becomes the first coach to win the grand slam three times. meanwhile, the best was yet to come at twickenham where scotland battled back to draw 38—all with england in the calcutta cup. patrick gearey looks back at what really was a super saturday. the slam in the storm. drenched in rain and champagne, wales have conquered all — a third grand slam in 11 years and the man behind it stood quietly beside it. it's not about me, it's about those players. we spoke beforehand about them playing for themselves and their families and this crowd and wales as a whole and to be able to create a bit of history, so they can never take that away from them. wales were expecting something fearsome from the west and it came via the weather, not ireland. it took little more than a minute for the welsh to work out a way through them and listen to the reaction when
9:33 am
hadleigh parkes scored. cheering and applause. ireland never silenced the hymns and arias. last year, jacob stockdale was the star of a team that won the grand slam. this time he and they have been shackled. under pressure, they made mistakes which delivered up welsh penalties. slotted away by gareth anscomb. wales steadily built a lead that ireland never threatened to come back from. in a world cup year, they're now trying to rediscover something that wales have well and truly found. after that world cup, warren gatland will stand down. there is just one lastjob. as there was for england and scotland — the calcutta cup still had to be decided and any english frustration seemed to be channelled into a fantastic first half that saw them score four tries. henry slade and johnny may's combination, the highlight of what seemed to be a supercharged lap of honour. they led 31—0 at one point, but scotland were not done. darcy graham's try sparked a second half in which their promise finally blossomed. he scored two in an amazing comeback. when finn russell was allowed to the line
9:34 am
unaccompanied, it was 31—31. befuddled english heads span, no—one could keep sam johnson from scoring. scotland were minutes away from winning at twickenham for the first time in 35 years. in the end, in overtime, george ford scored and salvaged a draw. still, not enough to take the calcutta cup back from scotland. the six nations saved its best till last. patrick geary, bbc news. and in the women plasma six nations... —— the women's six nations... england ran in 12 tries as they thrashed scotland 80—0 to seal a ninth grand slam and regain the women's six nations title. the red roses were rampant, asjess breach scored her second and england's fourth try inside 17 minutes. england went on to score a staggering seven tries in the first half, adding another five in the second. the win gave england a 10th six nations crown, after losing
9:35 am
the title to france last year. three sides have taken their place in semifinals of the fa cup. the final spot will go to millwall or brighton who face each other this afternoon. manchester city had a fight on their hands at the liberty stadium after going 2—0 down. it was sergio aguero‘s winner in the 88th minute that gave them the win. that wasn't without controvery though, after replays showed the goal was offside, but the video assistant review system was not in use. elsewhere, rauljimenez and diogojota scored as wolves produced an outstanding second—half performance to defeat manchester united and reach their first fa cup semifinal for 21 years. ole gunnar solskjaer‘s side have lost two consecutive matches for the first time since the norwegian took over in december. watford are also through after beating crystal palace. there are two matches in the premier league later. everton host chelsea at 4.30pm, while liverpool can go two points clear at the top with a win at fulham. yesterday, west ham staged
9:36 am
an astonishing comeback to beat huddersfield town 4—3 in stoppage time at the london stadium. javier hernandez was brought off the bench in the second half and scored twice, with his second in the 91st minute, clinching victory for the hammers. leicester city managed a dramatic victory of their own, beating burnley with a last—minute goal from wes morgan to win 2—1, but harry maguire was sent off so they played with ten men for most of the match. elsewhere, bournemouth drew with newcastle. rangers slipped up again in their pursuit of the scottish premiership leaders celtic. they could only draw one—all at home to kilmarnock. celtic are away to dundee later today. aberdeen‘s poor run at home continues — they drew with livingston. niall mcginn putting the dons ahead after 30 minutes. but craig sibbald equalised for the visitors just before the break. that result extends their winless league run at home to six games in a row. elsewhere, there were wins for hamilton and hibs. in golf, rory mcilroy
9:37 am
and tommy fleetwood go into the final round of the players‘ championship at sawgrass in florida one stroke behind leaderjon rahm of spain. rahm equalled the lowest score of the week with a third round 64 and is 15 under—par. mcilroy recovered from a shaky start. both he and fleetwood made two—under—par 70s to move to iii—under. that's all the sport for now. now on bbc news, time for the papers. how very discombobulating. sunday morning paper review. i am how very discombobulating. sunday morning paper review. iam more shocked than anybody. with me are the journalist and
9:38 am
author shyama perera, and rosamund urwin who's financial services correspondent at the sunday times. you will use to this time of day, i am not. —— you are used to. the eu making plans for the eu to lose the third meaningful vote on taxes, says the observer. jacinda ardern on the front page of the sunday telegraph meeting grieving relatives. the mail on sunday says some tory mps are angry at the way comic relief for trade poverty in the uk. more brexit in the sunday times which says theresa may will tell conservative mps brexit might not happen at all if they do not pack her deal —— the way comic relief portrayed poverty. and a picture of the three—year—old victim of the christchurch attacks.
9:39 am
making a stop at the front pages, looking at brexit first, in various forms —— making a start. the front page of the sunday telegraph, nothing new in the deal, about the moral imperative. what she says is, we can only put to the old site if we can only put to the old site if we stand together as democrats and patriots, pragmatically making the compromises necessary to dot of sorry, i cannot even read that. what does it say? he'll division, i think, and move forward —— the compromises necessary. . . think, and move forward —— the compromises necessary... if one puts an optimistic blow on it, it is precisely the exercise of democracy and the belief in patriotism and that the top... you are much more optimistic than me! what she is
9:40 am
actually asking them to do is to not be democratic or patriotic but to ta ke be democratic or patriotic but to take party lines and do as they are told. i think the telling word, theresa may has written for the sunday telegraph, more sympathetic to herthan sunday telegraph, more sympathetic to her than most, certainly more sympathetic to the conservatives than most, and they have the word bags, it feeds the narrative that she is in office and not in power —— begs. an extraordinary evidence last week as we had this frankly farcical series of events play out where we had heard brexit minister saying, you must back this amendment, then he went and voted against it. we had her saying, i will vote for this, then not voting for it. an extraordinary mess. it has got to the point where it looks embarrassing. the world is laughing at us and they should be. page 11 of the mail on sunday, vote for my deal
9:41 am
or we will be stuck forever in the eu plasma hotel california. we will never leave. check out, but never leave. that line is also in the sunday times this morning. we have this idea that this is her threat to eurosceptics who are not backing her deal, they say it does not embody brexit in the form people voted for, although of course people voted for brexit, as we have said solidly for the past two and a ears, for very different reasons and with very different reasons and with very different visions of what the deal meant. this is the scenario she is presenting to try to win over sceptics but she has also got to win over the dup sceptics but she has also got to win overthe dup and sceptics but she has also got to win over the dup and a labour mps because i cannot imagine and perhaps lam going because i cannot imagine and perhaps i am going to be proved wrong because he should not make predictions but i can imagine this going through with very little change to win over all of the tories against it. she says she has got to
9:42 am
do more to win over the dup and one wonders what move she can do without really putting everything that those on the mainland may have been voting and thinking into jeopardy because on the mainland may have been voting and thinking intojeopardy because i think to be having that close a relationship with the dup and we have already got a backlash with irish republican factions sending small terrorist packages and whatever, but we are clearly being given a warning it is not healthy. i wonder what it means for the rest of us, if she continues on this path. if the extension of the extension dotted requires cooperation and agreement from all of the eu 27 countries, they might get fed up with this and say, no, we are not doing this anymore. we leave without a deal. germany currently clearly seems most sympathetic to the idea
9:43 am
of us getting an extension, they do not want anything to cause instability in germany is a persuasive power over much of the re st of persuasive power over much of the rest of the eu 27. plenty of countries for whom this is not that important an and i think, it is getting ludicrous, why are we backing this? in western europe where we have much bigger trading links, there is a reason to fight for this, but then we have italy, people might think they might not be persuaded on that score, and people are trying to play that card certainly, and you will have people trying to put pressure on them to say, actually, you should not give the uk another extension. the sunday times has a similar heading, pack my bags at or we will never leave, die ha rd bags at or we will never leave, die hard way that —— back my brexit. number 10 trying to find 75 who will switch. there are also many, many claims that democracy will be
9:44 am
damaged if this is not —— if this is not..., damaged if this is not —— if this is not. . ., ifthey do damaged if this is not —— if this is not..., ifthey do not deliver brexit. as this has continued, i was one of those who said, let us just do itand one of those who said, let us just do it and get on with it in whatever form we can agree. but as this goes on and on, i am starting to see it asa on and on, i am starting to see it as a really interesting exercise in democracy and how democracy is done when a vote has gone through which a lot of people feel went through on the wrong information and there is a real feeling by the the wrong information and there is a realfeeling by the people in westminster who are after all supposed to be the ones who know the most about all of this that this is the wrong thing. ijust find that whole exercise of democracy to turn this on its head interesting and exciting. originally, i found this on its head interesting and exciting. originally, ifound ita pain. 16 and 17 of the sunday times,
9:45 am
eurosceptics start to crack as may steps up search for 75 switches. a very helpful double spread with some of the very prominent voices are featured, jacob rees—mogg, boris johnson, priti patel. whether or not they can be lent upon, persuaded, not so far. one of her cards we have not so far. one of her cards we have not discussed which he could play, a lot wa nt not discussed which he could play, a lot want her to play, i will not be around after this point, so if she commits to saying, i will not be the prime minister that takes forward the next stage of negotiation, this is only the withdrawal agreement, another thing people keep having to say, this conversation is going on for years, do they want theresa may at the helm? clearly not. the future relationship is the next stage to be negotiated. that is a possibility, but i get the impression with
9:46 am
theresa may that there is an element of her now actually wanting to stay on and prove people wrong. yeah, she is becoming more resistant. and rigid, she was always rigid. i think there is something in her thinking that, actually, hang on, ifi there is something in her thinking that, actually, hang on, if i manage to do this thing that looked impossible, possibly still isn't possible, why should i go? she became prime minister knowing she had to deliver brexit and it would not be easy. yeah. she has not done it yet, of course. plenty of things you could criticise about her approach, she did not come forward and say, 48% of people still voted remain, we have to find something much more of a compromise, it felt like she had it in the direction she decided on without conversations. her own party has patted her on the other side for claiming this is not really delivering brexit —— patted her. it was always going to be an
9:47 am
almost impossible task, the question is whether it will prove to be completely impossible. the eu war—gaming for the fall of the may government, planning for the prime minister's exit. isn't itjust strategic thinking and doesn't every organisation do it? brexit planning was a little thin for a while. for us. assuming the eu might be strategically ahead of the game where we are constantly behind. the point here is we will have to hold eu elections if we have not gone by a certain date. if we ask for a short extension, there could still be pressure to hold european elections, how do we know that short extension will be at, they will not be another one? if you were the eu 27, you would say, wait, and there isa 27, you would say, wait, and there is a legal problem here, if we are still there and not holding elections and not in a process of withdrawal, there was a massive
9:48 am
problem for them. a a chance and i think it cost 100 million, that figure is around somewhere, to hold the eu elections, and it will probably have to happen. it would be slightly farcical. i suppose no more farcical than... slightly farcical. i suppose no more farcical than. .. anything else that has happened!! farcical than. .. anything else that has happened! ! holding farcical than. .. anything else that has happened!! holding elections for something you are about to get out of? i presume what will happen in a lacklustre way, people will go and vote at the top we could possibly dot the top we might get a really weird result because there might be a very low turnout, even elections have thrown up very strong ukip votes, for example, so you could get something that is not very representative of popular feeling. the telegraph, different story, the deaths of 50 people we now know, the deaths of 50 people we now know, the death toll has risen, visiting the
9:49 am
uk on death toll has risen, visiting the ukona death toll has risen, visiting the uk on a trip confirming his extremism. this message received nine minutes ahead of the shootings and the prime ministerjacinda ardern receiving that message. but also, social media aspect of it, how many versions of the video that he live streamed had to be taken down by facebook? yes, and also youtube. i checked in the morning and the video was available on friday morning uk time on the video was available on youtube in more than one guise. they have taken down thousands of videos, the phrase is associated with it, which could be copies, but also fits with footage that has been lifted and various
9:50 am
other related content. this is a problem and we have a story inside our paper, the sunday times, saying children were already passing it around in the playground on friday and in the classrooms and that is an extraordinary horrific thing. in the uk. the video was so available. just wa nt to uk. the video was so available. just want to quickly mention, tom watson, deputy leader of labour, suggested social media sites should freeze uploads in the event of an atrocity to stop the spread. i think that it's very problematic, partly because you do not know it is an atrocity until it is reaching a point of critical mass, firstly. secondly, what bad news organisations that are the to cover it legitimately, rather than to get pleasureed—macro promote a particular point? we are used to live streaming —— rather than to get
9:51 am
pleasureed—macro promote a particular point. we all watched the twin towers. the point is, who is posting it and why? there is a problem because part of dot that —— pa rt problem because part of dot that —— part of... he had found it deliberately knowing it would go around social media, it looks like a first person shooting video game. deliberately done. he has thought, what will this be like in the world? how will it spread? it has been designed for that process. finishing with comic relief, mail on sunday first, tory fury at hungry britain claims, comic relief a tv ad for jeremy corbyn. i sought comic relief, a dogs breakfast of a programme, but if every time you talk about poverty the macro hunger, thatis talk about poverty the macro hunger, that is a promotion of the labour party, it is a very sorry state we
9:52 am
are in —— poverty or hunger. if the tories feel only labour can deal it, which is what this suggests, anytime it discussed, it can only be tough for labour. was it a political attack on the conservatives?” for labour. was it a political attack on the conservatives? i have only seen small sections of comic relief. i was working on friday night. one thing i think they go on inside, there is a fair question over, are they really the right people to be saying, we have a massive problem with homelessness in this country, which we do, and they have propaganda, they are calling it, edgierand have propaganda, they are calling it, edgier and saying have propaganda, they are calling it, edgierand saying homeless people dying on the streets, we know they are, but there is a question over whether ed sheeran is the right person to deliver that message. if we want to reach lots of people, may be celebrity should be used. the problem is with these programmes, the meaning is fantastic, the result
9:53 am
is great, money going to people who need it, but the way in which it is done, those who have banging on about have nots, it makes me slightly uncomfortable. red nose day, could the plastic noses not to be seen again? single use, unsustainable, says defra. can we not put a light in them and put them on christmas trees? paper noses. they used to make lots of things out of card. if they can turn schools into hopeless stores... you cannot squeeze them. i am ok with that. -- if they can turn straws into hopeless straws. the whole point is selling something. but perhaps what we should be saying is have something a little more permanent
9:54 am
thatis something a little more permanent that is not made of plastic. children in need does it, batches of pudsey —— badges. children in need does it, batches of pudsey -- badges. we should donate without needing a nose. you do not a lwa ys without needing a nose. you do not always need something in return for always need something in return for a donation, do you? you can see the front pages online on the bbc news website seven days a week. if you miss any addition of the programme, you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. lovely see you, shyama perera and rosamund urwin. iam still here, just at a different time of the day. lovely to see you. weather coming. tha nkfully thankfully the full cost not looking as horrendous after yesterday's flooding. still some rain around in the form of showers, rain, hail
9:55 am
sleet and snow, but they are showers, sunny spells following in their wake. low pressure bringing us yesterday's weather is across scandinavia, aircoming yesterday's weather is across scandinavia, air coming down from north—westerly direction and that is why we saw most showers to start the day in the north and west. showers transferring into eastern parts this afternoon. just about anywhere could see a shower at some time today but western scotland brightening up and still pretty windy across eastern scotla nd still pretty windy across eastern scotland and here we will see wind gusts still in excess of 40—50 mph. blustery elsewhere. you are showers in northern ireland this afternoon. showers across england and wales mainly in northern england and northern wales. a few of you may stay dry. it will feel chillier in the wind, especially as the showers go through. this evening and overnight, the wind will start to ease, showers in central and eastern
9:56 am
parts of england last and longest and cross shetland, they will all gradually fade, cloud increasing in northern ireland later, then showers pushing on again. coldest part of the night early on in northern ireland. temperatures well below freezing for tomorrow's the shower, navy —5 in rural scotland. sunny start, cloud increases through the day may be —5 in rural scotland. drier and brighter moments. best of the driest weather throughout with sunny spells eastern scotland and central and eastern england, 102 showers. but the weather we have had of late, colder air today, blue areas on the chart, dragging up an areas on the chart, dragging up an area of high pressure and something area of high pressure and something a bit milder as well. after today
9:57 am
because much showers, the outlook is much drier, still rain at times in the west, mainly north—western parts of scotland, some folk, but lighter winds to go with the drier days too. goodbye for now.
