10:00 pm
a senior member of theresa may's hello. cabinet warns that she cannot afford this is bbc news. to ignore parliament if it moves the rules on police stop and search powers in england and wales are being relaxed to back a softer brexit. to try to stop the rise the prime minister is in knife crime. considering her next move as mps more police officers, at less senior ranks, prepare to vote again will now be able to authorise on alternatives to her deal. the tactic in several areas where knife crime is high. i don't think it's nathanieljames is a youth sustainable to say, well, trainer working in schools across the west midlands. he told us how he helps to build we'll ignore parliament's position, trust between young people and therefore leave without a deal. and the police around the issue we'll have the latest from westminster. also tonight... the islamic state group of stop and search. reveals its secrets — we talk to captured british is fighters. some police officers, they can't relate to young people, so there is a blockage when it comes to speaking to the young person because, you know, they might speak down to the young person instead of speaking the methodology is wrong. it's a to them respectfully. then the young person speaks back to them disrespectfully and it goes gang. round and round and round and round. a comedian with no political so this is why i do teach young people that, experience is on course to win the opening round of ukraine's you know, you show respect presidential election. and you receive respect back. so that's one of the main things, and celtic have one hand on the trophy as they beat is just the way of how you approach rangers in the battle them and the way you speak to them for the scottish premiership title. will ultimately reflect on how they will speak back to you.
10:01 pm
but you also teach young people about their rights if stop and search happens to them. just briefly explain what they are. yeah, so, you know, we have something that's called go wisely, which is different categories of what young people should be doing when they are being stopped and searched. we also do something called good cop vs bad cop, good evening. where we talk about a police officer as mps get ready to vote again asking certain questions on possible alternatives that they are not meant to theresa may's brexit deal to ask, and the questions tomorrow, the prime minister has that they are allowed to ask. been urged not to ignore them so it's about empowering the young if they back a softer brexit. people so that they know how to speak to the police thejustice secretary, david gauke, said that ignoring the will when they are stopped. of parliament would not be sustainable if mps agree a way forward. and you're meant to get a receipt from the officer? mrs may's deal has already been yes, yes, yes. rejected three times, but this week could see her trying so the receipt, that will mean that to get it through a fourth time. here's our political after they've been searched, if they are stopped by another correspondent, iain watson. police officer, that they can chanting: shame on you! show that receipt. the original brexit day has been also it will have the name, the station, so if they would like to lodge a complaint and gone and the protests carry on. chanting: give us all a final say! against a police officer then this week, crucial decisions will have to be taken if mps are to avoid leaving with no deal they can take the receipt by the new deadline to their local station of april the 12th. and lodge a complaint. your cousin died as a
10:02 pm
result of knife crime. tomorrow, parliament will debate alternatives how powerful is it when you share to the prime minister's proposals. the story of the impact of your cousin's death on your family and community? and this cabinet minister made it it's a massive powerful tool. clear he could live with a closer my part is what i talk about, relationship to the eu, it's called the ripple effect. if that's what mps want. it's when one person gets stabbed, if parliament is voting you're notjust stabbing that overwhelmingly against leaving person, you're stabbing so many the european union without a deal, people in that family because so many people are affected, but is voting in favour of not only the family, the community. a softer brexit, i don't think when there is a stabbing, it just sends fear amongst young it's sustainable to say, people and amongst parents, and especially our young people well, we'll ignore parliament's who then think that they must arm position and therefore themselves because they're hearing that young people their age leave without a deal. are going around stabbing people. was the prime minister seeking divine intervention today to break the deadlock? she could resurrect her defeated deal and hold a fourth vote on it this week, if it appears to be more popular than any of the alternatives. up to nine different options could be discussed by mps tomorrow. youth worker nathanjames. some would see the uk retaining the former us vice president, joe biden, has denied claims close links to the eu, by another democrat that he behaved inappropriately towards her. such as a customs union, making trade easier lucy flores said that with the european union but more during campaigning in 2014 he placed his hands on her shoulders difficult to strike trade deals and kissed the back of her head — with other countries. making her feel uncomfortable. and single market membership — from washington,
10:03 pm
again, easier trade but less chris buckler reports. control of immigration. joe biden is still considering but some mps are still pressing for no deal, and others say that any deal should be put whether he will run as a democratic to a new referendum. and that is the option favoured candidate for next year's by labour's deputy leader. presidential election. but certainly this is going to put we need to move beyond brexit and it extra scrutiny on him. what was interesting in that seems to me the only way we can do statement that came today from lucy flores during that that now is with a people's vote, interview on cnn, and she said as far as she was concerned it that is the solution, not an option. should disqualify him from running theresa may faces some for the presidency. at the same time lucy flores also tough choices this week. made clear that she has many there is no question different political opinions of her cancelling brexit, tojoe biden, and that she does not or as it's known in the jargon, support him on a number revoking article 50, but some other options favoured by mps, of different issues. a customs union for example, but she said she did have concerns about his behaviour. also run counter to she says that it was not the conservative manifesto. in her view a sexual assault. if she goes along with that, but at the same time, she felt she could lose some of her top team around her cabinet table. it was inappropriate behaviour. or she could take a different option she said that as far and call a general election. as she was concerned, and this is in an article a senior conservative has said that she has written, that it was an experience that felt pragmatic preparations are under way for a possible election, awkward, disturbing and weird. but that prospect has horrified many and it is certainly going to put in the party and a former a new focus onjoe biden. occupant of number ten. he is someone who is regarded
10:04 pm
i think a general election as a real statesman within the democratic party, will solve nothing at this moment. somebody who can be very different to donald trump. so what is his solution? but of course these allegations will certainly hurt the outstanding in the interests of ending the chaos we have now, that he has within the party. and that could continue, we must have a government that has a working majority, and that is the only reason for a time—limited unity government. it's time for a look at the weather with chris fawkes. so, a cross—party government hello again. we have seen some really big swings to unite a sometimes in temperatures over very cross country. the last couple of days. not likely, but these days, yesterday we had highs up to 20 normal political rules don't apply. degrees in greater london but it has been nowhere near that worm today. iain watson, bbc news, westminster. it is going to get even iain joins us live from westminster. colder in the week ahead. by tuesday we are looking realistically, what chance at temperatures staying down is there of mps reaching any sort into single figures for many of us. of consensus tomorrow? there will be plenty of showers around, some of them turning wintry as well. the latest satellite pictures show some patches of cloud well, mps have seized control from across western areas and as we go the government. they have taken through this evening and overnight, that cloud will tend to drift its way across control to discuss alternatives to the irish sea was thickening up, so we could see some patchy theresa may's deal. but they did outbreaks of rain arriving in northern ireland before this last week as well and the voice the end of the night. of parliament was reduced to a crook because they couldn't agree on any otherwise it is a dry night, where we see some lengthy clear one single alternative. but there is breaks, particularly across the east
10:05 pm
of the uk, we will see some frost a growing confidence at westminster that mps this time i'd be able to developing in the countryside. so for some, a chilly start to the day on monday. unite around a closer relationship high pressure is still with us, with brussels, for example a customs but tending to move east, through the day, to allow this cold union, although that's not certain. front to me then, but whatever they agree it is not into the north—west. binding on the government. so what now, we will start off the day with a drier weather and some sunshine for the east of scotland, they are then likely to do is pass a much of england and wales having a decent day as well, law on wednesday instructing theresa with sunny spells throughout. may to go back to brussels and ask but, in the north—west, cloud will thicken with outbreaks for a longer debate of brexit to try of rain from northern ireland moving to work out an alternative deal. in into the west of scotland, with the rain turning steadier response she might say hang on, i and heavier all the time. it might be april the first, got one ready here, bring back her but don't be fooled own deal and ask for a vote, or she by the warm up in the south. temperatures up to 16 degrees might say i'm not going to do that, in cardiff, but it is going to get i'm going to resign, or she could colder from tuesday onwards, with rain or showers in the forecast, but very unsettled, call an election. any of these is it will even be cold enough for some possible, i don't know which will hills know as well. happen and quite frankly neither so cold air moves southwards does anyone else! during tuesday, the winds coming the bbc has learned that around 50 down from a northerly direction british is fighters have been and that is what really will be captured in syria over bringing those showers and really the last three months. hammering the temperatures. the end of the islamic state a bit of rain to start off the day group's so—called caliphate across eastern areas of england was announced a week ago, with the syrian town of baghouz and that clears through and then showers, there will be hail the last is held area to fall. and thunder mixed in and some of them turning wintry with some our middle east correspondent quentin sommerville, snow falling over some of the hills. who is in north eastern syria, we may well see something a bit more

10:10 pm
quentin somerville, bbc news, north eastern syria. police are to be given more freedom to use stop—and—search powers in an attempt to reduce knife crime in england and wales. more police officers, at less senior ranks, will now be able to authorise the tactic in several areas where knife crime is high. campaigners have questioned the effectiveness of stop—and—search and described the move as "disappointing and regressive". our home affairs correspondent dominic casciani has the details. another knife off the streets, found in a stop—and—search in north london. some a0 fatal stabbings so far this year. now police in the seven most affected areas are being given a search power banned when theresa may was home secretary. the whole government agree that stop—and—search is a vital power. we still, of course, want it to be targeted and focused and intelligence led, which it will be, but with these new powers is increased powers — we all agree, including the prime minister, this is exactly
10:11 pm
what's needed to help fight the rise in serious violence. knife crime fell after 2011, but it has been rising for almost five years. the police's use of stop—and—search plunged over the last decade from 1.4 million times a year to less than 300,000. that fall after concerns the tactic was failing by unfairly targeting young black men. now, an enhanced power returns for a year—long pilot in london, greater manchester, the west midlands, south and west yorkshire, south wales and merseyside. the main stop—and—search power requires police to have a reasonable suspicion someone is carrying a weapon. they could use it if this knife detector raised an alert. today's changes mean police in the key areas can search anyone in the neighbourhood where they believe violence may, rather than will, occur. while there is no proof of a direct link between the rate of knife crime and the use of stop—and—search, many police officers believe it
10:12 pm
deters people from carrying blades — they think twice about being stopped and the risk of prison. but critics say it is still intrusive and any increased use will be highly controversial. too many of my experiences and stories i've heard have been very unpleasant, which leads to building a lot of tension between police and young people, to the point where you have young innocent civilians running away from police just to avoid being stopped and searched. police chiefs say they are listening to concerns about how they use their powers. tomorrow the prime minister hosts a summit to hearfrom officers themselves about how to reverse the deadly violence. dominic casciani, bbc news. facebook founder mark zuckerberg says he wants governments to play a more active role in policing internet content. he says the responsibility is too great for companies like his to tackle alone and wants new laws covering harmful content, election integrity,

privacy and data. our washington correspondent chris buckler reports. as both a brand and business, facebook is by any scale huge. but the man who started this global social network says the job of managing and monitoring all of its content managing and monitoring all of its co nte nt has managing and monitoring all of its content has become too big for it alone. much of the concern is about harmful content. there are governments already planning new legislation after the recent killings in christchurch, murders inside this new zealand mosque was streamed live on facebook. they have responsibility when these —— but when they put these platforms and public use to make sure they are safe and they cannot be weaponised by terrorists. and families have been pushing for new rules. this girl took her own life after looking at posts promoting self—harm on instagram, which is owned by facebook. in america, protecting
10:14 pm
elections has also become a priority. mark zuckerberg has already faced difficult questions inside congress about whether facebook was used to allow foreign interference in the last presidential vote. with another election taking place here next year, mark zuckerberg and facebook will be under enormous scrutiny. but beyond just defending his company, some believe he is trying to frame and influence the whole discussion. he suggests privacy regulations should be introduced around the world. facebook has already tried to show it is addressing some people's fa res. show it is addressing some people's fares. but it wants a common approach across the world when it comes to privacy and a fourth area, what is known as data portability. basically how people because my information is shared between services. but it's a sign of the distrust of some in washington that on facebook‘s rival, twitter, one congressman wrote. . .

political experience is on course to win the most votes in the presidential election. exit polls suggest volodymyr zelenskiy — who plays the president in a satirical tv show — is expected to beat the incumbent petro poroshenko in the first round of voting today. jonah fisher reports. fa ct fact is very quickly catching up with fiction in ukraine. this is the moment that a comedian who plays the president in a tv show found out he was beating the real president by more than ten percentage points. these are just exit polls, but the political establishment here has been shaken. what is your reaction to these exit polls? great! i'm very happy. but this is not the final. you think you will win the second
10:17 pm
round? we will see, i think so. i spent a day with mr zelenskiy during the election campaign. at the time his grasp of politics was weaker than his understanding of british comedy. benny hill. he is more understandable than monty python. for me, monty python is better, i'm sorry. ukrainians feel they know how mr zelenski would perform as president because they have seen him star ina president because they have seen him star in a tv show as a teacher who turns into a principled, honest president. what might ukraine's president, petro poroshenko. five years ago, the billionaire was swept to power

good evening. an important day in the premier league — more on that shortly — but it was also a key day in the scottish premiership, where the old firm match was, as usual, a tempestuous game. celtic beat their glasgow rivals rangers 2—1 to move closer to retaining the league title. adam wild reports. they say there is always calm before the storm. not on old firm days in glasgow. few derbies anywhere provoke such passion and rivalry. victory would all but secure yet another league title for celtic — as if any greater incentive was needed. when odsonne edouard darted through the rangers defence, celtic fans sensed this was their day to get one over on the neighbours. such occasions don't need any extra spark, but it came moments later from the elbow of alfredo morelos, the rangers player sent off for the fifth time this season. now they really did need something special. it came quite magnificently from ryan kent. the scores even, tempers increasingly less so. with minutes remaining, celtic fought their way through, james forrest
