10:02 pm
the prime minister has written to the president of the european council asking to delay brexit until the 30th was this a foul? the referee said ofjune — but with the option to leave sooner if parliament can no. however liverpool would come agree a deal. again and now there was no stopping theresa may says the uk will now be preparing to take part in elections them. of mo salah's many for the european parliament at the end of may — in case no agreement is reached. contributions perhaps the most tonight, after three important so far. the result was days of discussions, labour has criticised rubber—stamped by jordan important so far. the result was the government's approach, rubber—stamped byjordan henderson, liverpool back to the top and that's calling it disappointing, and said they've not come up where they plan to stay. in the with any changes to the prime minister's brexit deal. our deputy political editorjohn pienaar reports from westminster. first half we had very good moments it's a race against time, brexit. and chances in the box, they score just not enough time. their goal which was a nice goal, the pm's deputy still and we could make the equaliser so talking to labour today. not saying much though. lovely weather today, isn't it? game on again and the second half. some tories hate even talking to labour, though it's it was clear they came out and try all going nowhere fast. again. we need a couple of minutes here was labour's chief whip. but then we were completely in what could break the brexit deadlock? we've received something control and scored two wonderful from the government which we're looking at now. really? goals. we showed character in showed what was that then? a piece of paper. that we were coming for the three a while inside, then out again. points and the second half we kept you know i can't say anything and i don't
10:03 pm
want to speculate about it. going and they did not have any he'd be talking some more to his own side. this could drag on. except for a couple of set pieces and today, the prime minister's trying to break us on the had to accept that. counterattack. and that's all of us. she wrote a letter to donald tusk, the eu council president, requesting a leave date extension tojune the 30th if needed. it also requests an option it was a cagey match for long to leave earlier if a deal‘s periods in this women's world cup agreed in parliament. warm up match, nikita parris came closest for phil neville's side. but the letter accepts no agreement but england were undone means the uk prepares for the european parliament by one of the women's games evergreen stars. elections on may the 23rd, something mrs may has been this is canada's christine sinclair desperately trying to avoid. scoring a remarkable 180th goal but brexit‘s a work in progress — in international football. and not much progress. she made her debut aged 16, mps could vote to set their own she's now 35 and still scoring limit on any extension — ahead of the summer's potentially tough for tournament in france. the prime minister, since she'll have to hammer out an agreement the england boss could see plenty in brussels next week. to get the delay, the pm needs of room for improvement in his team. to tell the eu she's hard at it, trying everything to build yeah, ithink yeah, i think it's a consensus at westminster. what i think they will see from the actions that theresa may has taken over the last week is that she is leaving no stone unturned to do that,
10:04 pm
so britain is not dragging its feet in trying to solve this, but we are a democracy with a hung parliament so it's not easy. three rounds of talks this week, and negotiations between team corbyn and team may look barely alive tonight — no sign of any breakthrough. while team may is saying they'll rework the plan for the future, labour says the tories are offering zero change in the brexit deal and much the same plan for the future. obviously that's disappointing. compromise requires change. we want the talks to continue and we've written in those terms to the government, but we do need change if we are going to compromise. some brexiteers as they leave with no deal and maybe change prime minister. the prime minister herself has made it clear she's not going to be leader for much longer. we will have a new leader and a new prime minister and that new prime minister will not want to
10:05 pm
be tied into their withdrawal agreement with the option of an extension. he or she will be in it that much stronger negotiating position to get the right deal for the united kingdom and that seems to me in the national interest. even if mrs may strikes a deal with mr corbyn, and that looks doubtful, mps on both sides could mutiny. some tories hate the idea of delaying brexit, or staying close to the eu, or even talking to mr corbyn. many labour mps want a new referendum, whatever deal is struck. and jeremy corbyn has never much liked that idea. both leaders might be privately relieved if their talks come to nothing and it's left to mps to choose their ideal outcome — if they can. mrs may's next trip is to brussels, where a 12 month delay has been suggested, maybe with enough flexibility to allow an earlier exit, but where some eu leaders may want to make britain'sjourney tougher, not easier. john pienaar, bbc news, westminster. our europe correspondent damian
10:06 pm
grammaticas said in brussels. it's all very well asking for a delay for brexit but all 27 eu leaders have to agree to it and some are sounding pretty cool about the idea. that's right, tonight there are some worrying signs from across the eu. no countries appear to be keen on this idea of a short extension that mrs may is asking for. they think that would just create a new crisis pointjust a few that would just create a new crisis point just a few weeks that would just create a new crisis pointjust a few weeks ago. —— just a few weeks away, but they seem to be splitting into two different caps. quite a lot of countries, like germany and ireland, want to avoid a no deal exit at the end of next week. they are open to what donald tusk was suggesting today, a long extension and into next year but there are other countries who are unconvinced. they are unconvinced it seems by what mrs may put in her letter. they are unconvinced of the talks with the opposition could deliver anything or that votes in parliament could deliver anything so there we see the french, emmanuel macron‘s office today saying a precondition for an extension was a credible plan from the uk and they
10:07 pm
had not seen that yet. even the dutch, the prime minister mark rutte usually close to the uk, he said today that the uk had not yet met the tests that the eu had set. so it may all come down to what happens in the next few days in those talks and then what happens in the room here on wednesday at the summit, whether theresa may can convince the leaders there because as you were saying, every single one of them has to agree. it will be a decision by consensus. damian grammaticas, thank you. the jury at the inquests into the birmingham pub bombings 44 years ago has found that a botched ira warning contributed to the deaths of 21 people. two massive explosions tore apart two pubs in the city centre in november 197a. the jury also found that there were no failings, errors or omissions in the police's response to the call. sima kotecha reports. the one thing that will always stick with me for the rest of my life is the smell — flesh, hair. that will never ever go from me.
10:08 pm
kevin burgess, one of more than 200 people who were injured on the night of the bombings. two explosions in two pubs, killing 21 people. the city was in shock. destruction and debris everywhere. these men, who were known as the birmingham six, were then falsely imprisoned for the crime. almost two decades later they were acquitted. and then some of the families of those killed campaigned forfresh inquests. today, the jury concluded a botched warning call from the irajust minutes before the bombs went off led to the death of 21 people and meant the police weren't able to evacuate the pubs in time. it's been 44 years. 44 years it's took us to have an inquest, let alone a murder trial. it is now time — way, way past time, for a murder trial. the jury deliberated for almost five hours and unanimously concluded
10:09 pm
there was not sufficient evidence of any failings or errors by the police in their response to the bomb warning. well, this used to be the tavern in the town, one of the pubs that was bombed on that evening. a significant moment during the inquests was when an ira bomber, witness 0, told the jury who he suspected of being behind the bombings. foui’ men were named. he claimed mick murray, who had been tried and acquitted in 1975, was involved, along with the unit's commander, seamus mcloughlin, former british soldierjames gavin, and michael hayes, the only one who's still alive. now there are calls for the police to investigate. as we say to i think any family when we investigate a death or a murder, we can't promise of course that we will result in a prosecution orjustice. we can promise that we'll do our best and we will do our best.
10:10 pm
nobody has clearly been convicted of the atrocity at the time. that has led to a lot of frustration in me personally. we know it was the ira, but who were the actual people? and it's really a case of closure and i don't think we're ever going to find closure. in his final remarks, the coroner sir peter thornton qc said, the dreadful events will never be forgotten because the people of birmingham will never forget the 21 lives that were tragically lost. sima kotecha, bbc news. a woman who has spent almost ten years in jail after killing her husband in a hammer attack has been released on bail tonight, after her conviction was quashed. sally challen, who was found guilty of murdering 61—year—old richard challen in 2011, now faces a retrial injuly. charlotte gallagher reports. sally challen, in prison for nearly ten years. tonight, she's been released.
10:11 pm
herfamily arriving here in the white car to collect her, just hours after a judge granted bail. her supporters, who were at the old bailey this morning, were thrilled with the decision. the family are all supporting sally. we have done from day one, and our strength builds and will build even further. you know, this is a fantastic day for us. sally and richard challen were married for 30 years, but in august 2010 sally killed her husband here at the family home in claygate in surrey, hitting him more than 20 times over the head with a hammer. she has never denied killing him but has always said it wasn't murder. in february, the court of appeal overturned her original murder conviction after hearing evidence that she was suffering from two undiagnosed psychiatric conditions at the time of the killing. they also heard claims she had been subjected to coercive control and had been emotionally abused,
10:12 pm
bullied and humiliated by her husband. an emotional sally challen appeared in court today via video link from prison, where she's been for almost a decade. she confirmed she would plead not guilty to murder at her retrial. her sons, who have campaigned for her release, were here again today to support her. today we are overjoyed that bail has been granted for our mother, and she will now be released back to us. 0ur mother now rejoins our family. david challen later added his mother couldn't believe what was happening. the judge today said her new trial would begin in july, adding, if necessary. charlotte gallagher, bbc news. president trump has repeated his warning to mexico to control illegal immigration and drug smuggling saying the united states is full. on a visit to the border, he said he would impose 25% tariffs on cars from mexico if they failed to act. he also said he would not rule out
10:13 pm
closing the border at a later date. 0ur correspondent sophie long is at calexico in california right on the border with mexico. well, donald trump is still here and has been meeting with border patrol officials and taking a stroll up about these barriers. having appear to have softened his stance yesterday he took the opportunity to once again stayed he would be prepared to close the border if that is what is necessary to curb the flow of illegal migrants. the southern border of the united states. it runs from the gulf of mexico to the pacific ocean. donald trump said he wanted to build a will along its entire 2000 mile length. it was the rallying call of his campaign. it is one of the most controversial issues of his presidency. today, president trump
10:14 pm
through to southern california to view a section of newly replaced barriers. despite his claims to the contrary, no new wall has yet been completed. were going to have to tariff the cars coming from mexico to the united states. if that doesn't work, which it will, we will close the border. it'll take a day to do that. this is the border crossing, the busiest land port of entry in the world. president trump is make determination to keep u nwa nted is make determination to keep unwanted migrants out has led him to consider closing the border completely. this is just consider closing the border completely. this isjust one consider closing the border completely. this is just one of many ports of entry. imagine the chaos even a short closure could cause. the products i received an unpackaged. barry runs an electrical refurbishment factory in tijuana in mexico, living in los angeles in the united states. he and his business are dependent on the border remaining open. it would be a
10:15 pm
disaster, 0k? it would be like a horrible earthquake, like the power supply went down to the plant, no difference. it's foolish so we hope it doesn't happen. same way to never have power outage or earthquake or horrific floods. this is right up there with natural disasters. this is an unnatural disaster. how about that? 2020, trump! those gathered to welcome the president say the benefits of closing the border would benefits of closing the border would be worth the disruption. there is already chaos at the border and congress isn't doing theirjob. since they are not taking action, something needs to be done to protect the borders and protect not just americans but the people that are being used, politicised, and thatis are being used, politicised, and that is our illegal aliens. carmen rivera has been living in a makeshift shelter in tijuana for three months. a closed border wouldn't have stopped her from coming here. she says a gang in el
10:16 pm
salvador gave her 2a hours to choose whether to leave or die after she reported them to police. she chose to live but had to leave her five children and her sick mother behind. she says she hopes the us president will be more humane and grant people who need it asylum. while carmen waits, cars continue to queue and president trump forges on with his fight to fund the wall. liz bonnin, bbc news, southern california. gypsy, traveller and roma people have been comprehensively failed by the government and public services for far too long, according to a group of mps. after a two year inquiry, the women and equalities select committee said the plight of traveller communities had been filed under the "too difficult" category for too long. roma people came originally from india, before migrating to central europe hundreds of years ago. 0ur correspondent frankie mccamley reports from derby. hello, derbyshire police? hello, it's lindsay rourke
10:17 pm
from women's work. lindsay and dion are out on the streets of derby every week helping sex workers. so, we look for signs, you know, if they are looking into car windows. they spot a young roma girl who they often help. hello! have you done something to your hand? do you have condom? yes, we've got condoms. how many condoms would you like? er... 20. 20? have you had a fight or broke something? no, no. so, have you got somewhere to live? yes. yes? are you 0k? safe in your house? i think she has either got learning difficulties or she's just had no education because she is very, very childlike. the women from those communities do tend to drop out of education earlier. support workers here in derby also tell us roma are being subjected to extreme overcrowding. in some cases, 20 people living in a two—bedroom house.
10:18 pm
roma, as a community, can be susceptible to the kind of exploitation by landlords that would lead to this. a resident allowed us into this property but was too scared to speak on camera. you can smell urine. there's a needle over there. the door doesn't close. there are sheds... yeah, i would say those sheds are probably apartments that people are living in. and paying for? and paying for, absolutely. and why are the roma communities so exploited? i think that... there is language barrier. roma not wanting to complain, not knowing that they have the right to complain. after a difficult time in school, roma volunteers lucy and michael are helping to integrate roma children into the community. when i got to secondary school, that's when all the abuse started from the other pupils. "you need to go back to your country."
10:19 pm
why's that? i've every right to be here, same as you do. i did get excluded permanently when i was in year nine because of that. i did get a feeling that the teachers didn't want to support me. in this playground, around half the children are roma. many didn't turn up to school, it wasn't considered a priority for some of their parents in eastern europe. this head teacher is turning things around. we had children who would go and interrupt games and start fights. their attendance was poor. many of our children arrive notjust new to english but new to schooling. and you've had to bring in a number of measures, haven't you? we have a learning mentor, whose key focus in the morning is around attendance. so, she checks the register, sees who is in, who's not in. and, then, if we haven't got a reason, we will try and ring. if we don't get an answer, then we will go round knocking on doors. it's easy to say roma children are going to be excluded. but we've got to have high expectations. expect them to be in schools. because they want what every
10:20 pm
other child has got. but, despite these pockets of positivity, there are still clear divisions in the community that will take years to overcome. frankie mccamley, bbc news in derby. thousands of people have taken to the streets of algeria demanding an overhaul of the political structure. this is the seventh successive week of friday protests. tuesday's resignation of long—serving president abdelaziz bouteflika does not appear to have satisfied the demonstrators. according to the constitution, pa rliament‘s speaker should take over, but protesters want all those associated with mr bouteflika to go. the england and tottenham footballer danny rose says the way the authorities are dealing with racism in the game is a "farce" and he can't wait to see the back of football after recent incidents of racism. he and other england players were victims of racist chanting during the recent euro 2020 qualifier in montenegro. here's our sports editor dan roan.
10:21 pm
it's being seen as a damning indictment of the modern game. danny rose has the footballing world at his feet, but he's now revealed racism has made him want to turn his back on the sport. the spurs defender‘s been the victim of abuse, including during england's match in montenegro last week, and he says the game is failing to tackle the issue. a country can only get fined a little bit of money for being racist. it's a bit of a farce at the minute. i have had enough. i just think that i've got five or six more years left in football, and i can't wait to, you know, see the back of it. rose's england team—mate raheem sterling — himself the subject of alleged racism — has been credited with inspiring renewed debate about the problem. the abuse suffered this week by juventus' italian forward moise kean in a game at cagliari just the latest in a series of unsavoury incidents this season. i hope i would have the courage to bring a team off, to make a real stance.
10:22 pm
and i think we've got to the point where we can no longer keep sweeping things under the carpet with a {io—20,000 fine, half a stadium, because i'm not sure we're getting to the bottom of the real issue. danny rose's comments reinforce the sense that racism has become the single biggest issue confronting the sport, including here at the grass roots of the game, where the number of reported incidents have reached record levels. and this season is set to be the worst ever. in leicestershire, the county fa is investigating after a cup final was abandoned this week following alleged racist remarks from the crowd towards a player. they were doing monkey chants, gestures. it's just disgusting, really. it was that bad where i'm feeling sorry for the people for me witnessing it. that's how bad it is. it's kids there. it's just horrible. disgraceful. the government's held talks with the fa and premier league in a bid to get a grip of a crisis that's harming the game's image. but with more players losing faith in football's authorities, the most decisive action may
10:23 pm
well come from them. dan roan, bbc news. liverpool have returned to the top of the premier league tonight with a hard—fought victory at southampton. with the score at 1—1 with ten minutes to go, a fine solo run and finish by mo salah put liverpool ahead. they eventually ran out 3—1 winners and now have a two—point lead over manchester city at the top of the table. so mickjagger says so mick jagger says he so mickjagger says he is on the mend and feeling better after allegedly undergoing heart valve replacement surgery in new york. the rolling stones postponed their tour of the us and canada when the singer was advised by doctors that he needed medical treatment. it's cost around $500 million to build, it's been in the offing for a decade. tonight, this spectacular building, a new cultural centre, known as the shed will be officially opened in new york. and the man behind the opening event production is the british film director steve mcqueen. 0ur north america correspondent nick bryant has been speaking to him.
10:24 pm
0n the west side of manhattan, it's almost as if a new city has taken shape. but the largest artistic space to open in new york for 50 years. an iconic structure called the shed. this giant venue launches with a celebration of african—american music, a family tree of spirituals, blues, jazz and gospel called soundtrack of america. it's been conceived and created by the oscar—winning british film director, steve mcqueen. this building seems to be about accessibility and inclusivity. absolutely. i mean, it's about that. it's about us, whoever we are, wherever we come from, whatever background we come from. and it's about allowing people, every kind of person, to fulfil their absolute potential in who they are, as an audience member or if it's a performer.
10:25 pm
it's about democracy, as such, of access and possibilities, which i think should be given to all. this super—sized space would have been occupied by a new york olympic stadium had the city beaten london to host the 2012 games. so, instead, they decided to build this artistic landmark and one... that can shift its shape. its outer shell has been constructed to be retractable. it opens and closes on giant rollers. deciding on how to configure the performance space will be part of the creative process. so, it's really like a toolkit for artists that each of these spaces can adapt to an artist's vision to the work they are trying to create and develop. in fact, we've had some artists who thought they might make a piece for this and, as they get into what they think the piece might become, whether it's a visual art piece or a performance arts piece, a pop piece, it might
10:26 pm
migrate to another space, which is more appropriate. many new yorkers complained this development has disfigured the skyline. maybe the shed can win them over. nick bryant, bbc news, manhattan. and that's it from us. now on bbc one it's time for the news where you are. somebody said it will take here. no, it won't take a year.
