hello. this is bbc news. this is bbc news i'm ben bland. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow our top stories: of the best. but there is a limit of something a little warmer and morning's papers in a moment. something a little warmer and sudan's coup takes an unexpected turn. something a little different. this first, the headlines: a day after ousting the president, area of low pressure building and the head of the military council also steps down. sweden considers reopening threatening with areas of cloud into an investigation into rape allegations made against wikileaks the west. at the same time, it looks founderjulian assange after his arrest over like the wind will swing around more conspiracy charges in the us. toa the chancellor, philip hammond, like the wind will swing around more to a south—easterly, driving on says he hopes that a brexit deal can translation: i announce as leader of something just a little bit milder be agreed in time to stop the uk over the next couple of days. from monday onwards we run the risk of taking part in next month's the transitional military council that i am stepping down from this european elections. starting to see the potential for position to select someone whose expertise and competence i can trust. i am confident that he will showers pushing into the south—west, former ukip leader nigel farage ta ke trust. i am confident that he will take the ship to the shores of but a degree also warmer weather. 8— launches a new brexit party and says 13 degrees. as we move out of monday it aims to change british safety. more legal trouble to tuesday, we still run the risk of forjulian assange. politics for good. prosecutors in sweden consider reopening a rape inquiry further showers down into the against the wikileaks founder. south—west. not amounting to do much thousands of children in england are going to illegal, at all, and again it will be a unregistered schools, according to the regulator 0fsted, and it says the conditions in some president trump launches degree also warmer with a bit of a new attack on so—called sanctuary cities, where undocumented migrants sunshine coming through, temperatures at 1a degrees. moving are made to feel welcome. out of tuesday into wednesday, the india's jet airways suspends all its international flights risk of showers recedes, lighter winds coming from that of them are "appalling." south—easterly source, so drier, warmer, and temperatures about a degree higher. we could see
temperatures as high as 9—16. this trend will continue as we move into hello, and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. the weekend, with high pressure re—establishing itself once again, with me arejoe twyman, director at the opinion poll deltapoll, and benedicte paviot, almost where we were this week. but the president of the foreign press association and uk the higher is a bit further west and correspondent for france 24. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. that has an influence on the the headline on the i, direction of the wind coming all the "assange faces tug of war way down from the mediterranean, a between us and sweden." warmer source coming up from the south—east, meaning temperatures the paper says swedish prosecutors will continue to increase as we push are considering reopening a rape investigation into the wikileaks towards the easter weekend, so co—founder, while the us wants britain to extradite him over his alleged role in leaked government secrets. believe it or not, easter weekend at the moment fingers crossed will stay and according to the guardian, largely dry with some sunny spells, and the potential for it to warm up. political pressure is intensifying by and the potential for it to warm up. by easter sunday we could see on the home secretary, sajid javid, temperatures into the high teens, to prioritise action to allow may be as high as 20 degrees. julian assange to be something to look forward to. extradited to sweden, amid concerns that the longstanding rape allegations could be overshadowed by the us charges. the ft leads on the news revealed today that personal information about millions of new mothers and their babies was sold illegally by bounty, a pregnancy and parenting
company that operates in dozens of hospitals. the telegraph reports that the home secretary sajid javid apparently drew up a detailed technological plan to avoid a hard border in ireland, but that it was stopped by the treasury, to the fury of brexiteers. it also claims that government ministers believe that the shadow brexit secretary, kier starmer, is being "obstructive" in cross party brexit talks, because he wants a second referendum. and the authenticity of the world's most expensive painting has been thrown into doubt, according to the times. it comes after the national gallery failed to mention suspicion about salvator mundi before it was sold for $450 million.
right, let's start with the telegraph. a brexit story on the front page here, and i think, as we all read this, the words leadership alert came into our heads. such a job it, who apparently had a plan to fix the irish border problem, which has been such a massive problem for everybody, he came up with that and it was turned down by the treasury. -- sajid it was turned down by the treasury. —— sajid javid. it was turned down by the treasury. -- sajid javid. that is what is being reported. ithink -- sajid javid. that is what is being reported. i think this is all about the leadership election. if you are going to want to be leader of the conservative party you need to have a plan on brexit, so sajid javid is getting out there quickly. he says this particular technical solution to the irish backstop, which has been such a thorn in the side of all the brexit negotiations is one that has basically been borrowed from switzerland. they are in the schengen zone. it would be interesting to see how it would be
incorporated. later on in the article it talks about the fact that the chancellor, philip hammond, has said he thinks theresa may should stay until brexit takes place, whenever that might be, 0ctober stay until brexit takes place, whenever that might be, october 31, we assume this year, maybe. we will have to see. there is also an element here of the talks between labour and the conservatives, saying that sir keir starmer is getting on the way of any kind of deal because he wants another referendum, so maybe a deal with a customs union would not be what he is going for. quite a would not be what he is going for. quitea mix would not be what he is going for. quite a mix of brexit stories. what do you make of the talks between labour and the tories? any chance they can come to a compromise?m labour and the tories? any chance they can come to a compromise? it is always possible. everything has a chance. everything has a chance. what we are seeing in the telegraph is that the tories are complaining about keir starmer, the shadow brexit secretary, being" deliberately obstructive", because he wants a second referendum. we have the labour sources counter cleaning, accusing the conservatives of not offering anything
substantial. — — counter of not offering anything substantial. —— counter claiming. substantially different, from the deal that has failed three times. it feels like they are preparing for it to break down and the blame game is starting, right? that's right, but it helps the prime minister to go to brussels and say, guess what, i'm speaking to the front bench of the main opposition party, which, when you lose and you do not have a majority, and you discover in january before the 29th of march 11pm deadline, which has now come and gone, that you have been defeated by 230 votes, which is unprecedented, i think that would already be a good time, maybe, to reach out. but worry not, because, despite the fact that mps are now being released, as you are indeed, from your brexit duties, a well—deserved holiday, finally, they are actually going to be talking next week, in cross—party talks. it
sounded today as ifjohn mcdonald was kind of saying, look, we will have something to tell you next week. now, is that something to say, talks have broken down? 0r week. now, is that something to say, talks have broken down? or is it something to say, we've got a deal? what you think the incentive is for both those parties to do a deal? given that for both their party members, it is toxic for them, isn't it? absolutely. it was in everybody‘s interests to show willingness to take part in the talks, but now that the deadline has moved many months down the line, i think it would be very surprising of a deal was reached. but i think the one thing that might incentivise both parties to actually come to some sort of arrangement is a wish to avoid the european elections, which at the moment, at least, in this country, are coming up at the end of may. they could be a pr disaster for both of the main parties, and so, if anything is going to encourage them to get something sorted out sooner rather than later, it is that. but i think thatis than later, it is that. but i think that is a bit of a stretch. it is a question of what this extra time is
going to be used for, donald tusk saying, please use it wisely, don't waste this time. so far it feels to me as this —— as if each section, each group of mps who wants one particular outcome, thanks, great, i've got this extra six months, enough time to get a referendum, enough time to get a referendum, enough time to prepare for no deal... a general election. yes, all back on the table. i think the polarisation we are seeing from the polling, unless they have got it wrong, or can i polling, unless they have got it wrong, or can i even say polling, unless they have got it wrong, or can i even say that to you? the wrong, or can i even say that to you ? the worst wrong, or can i even say that to you? the worst thing somebody can say to upholster. well, you know, trump, brexit. moving on swiftly. actually, i would think the job of a pollster at the moment is extremely difficult because i think there is a phenomenon, a recent one, of not saying what you really think, and there are people who say what they really think, but there are some people say that but will not go to vote. so the turnout has a lot to do with it. it does seem somewhat bizarre to be having european
elections three years after a referendum. 0n the other hand, some people, a not insignificant number, think that there was not a deal, it was brexit in principle. so... there isa was brexit in principle. so... there is a definite toxicity. potentially. the point is that it is too early for pollsters or indeed anybody else to know exactly how the european elections are going to play out. it might well be a proxy on the referendum. but, you would think, would lead into support for either the brexit party, we will come to that in a second, or potentially change uk. and liberal democrats, maybe. but is not the mainstream parties. we just don't know. let's move on to have a look at the photo here on the front page of the telegraph, which is jacob rees—mogg's sister. annunziata re—
smog. thejoke is that david cameron a lwa ys smog. thejoke is that david cameron always said she had to be called nancy mogg. she obviously didn't go along with that and by the look of it she has now left the party. she is joining it she has now left the party. she isjoining up it she has now left the party. she is joining up with the brexit party, with nigel farage. there he is, his back. i remember interviewing him the morning after the referendum and saying, you are out of a job now, aren't you? and he said he was delighted to be. but it seems not. that's right. i think he pretty quickly became quite doubtful about whether brexit would actually be delivered. so in the way that the prime minister feels herjob and her mission is to deliver brexit, whatever that is, asjoe was saying, the telegraph is saying even if it takes all the way to october, or who knows, even beyond, what could happen, ithink
knows, even beyond, what could happen, i think that... the thing is, i remembertalking happen, i think that... the thing is, i remember talking to nigel farage a few months ago and he wasn't sure if he would go back into politics. he clearly is. i think it also... he has a very personal following. we are in identity politics, and he resonates with a constituency in the larger sense of the word, in this country. and sometimes beyond. it is also remarkable is that it is notjust eu leaders. i can tell you that brexit, the backstop, dup, arlene it sound so the backstop, dup, arlene it sound so much better when you say it in a french accent. all these different things. as president of the foreign press association, there is not, as you would expect, real interest from europeanjournalists. there you would expect, real interest from european journalists. there are also a lot of asian journalists. european journalists. there are also a lot of asianjournalists. russian journalists. all kinds of nationalities, for all kinds of different reasons. having to explain what is actually very complex, in a very short space in their papers and
their magazines, and on our. all trying to get their heads around it. le backstop, i am going to say that every time now, whenever simon mccoy asks me, le backstop. what are the chances to nigel farage and his new party, given that he will be vying for those with you? you could, his old party, had actually already come out and attacked him. —— ukip. old party, had actually already come out and attacked him. -- ukip. there isa out and attacked him. -- ukip. there is a surprise. if the eu elections turn into a proxy for the referendum, what will happen is that those parties, with a very clearly defined position on brexit, welcome it stands to reason, benefit from that. so that means the brexit party, very clear on leave. ukip, very clear on leave. it is assumed they will get votes on one side. on change uk and perhaps the lib dems will benefit. and because these
elections come under proportional representation, they can really mop up representation, they can really mop up seats in the european parliament, if only forfour up seats in the european parliament, if only for four weeks or something like that, depending on how brexit turns out. but what we don't know, and this is the crucial point, is how leave supporters disappointed with how the last three years have gone, whether they will actually turn out to vote, or whether they are disgusted with the entire process and they will sit on their hands. i would process and they will sit on their hands. iwould imagine process and they will sit on their hands. i would imagine that somebody with the personal support nigel farage has could bring about change. but it remains to be seen. let's remember that ukip won the last elections. if memory serves me, i think labour came second and the conservatives came third. a difference of one seat. but the other side of this story is that it may mobilise these eu elections, if they indeed go ahead, and let's remember that funny quirks, because they happen on different days, all 28 member states, they happen on different days, all 28 memberstates, in they happen on different days, all 28 member states, in britain, one always votes on thursday, but in countries like france, the thinking is opposite. if you cannot be
expected to vote, you cannot be expected to vote, you cannot be expected if you are going to work so it is always on a sunday. although the british elections, if they go ahead, will go on a thursday, as traditionally. but the count will be done and the results will be announced on sunday night. sunday the 26, it will be very exciting. riveting television. let's move on. ijust want riveting television. let's move on. i just want to riveting television. let's move on. ijust want to say riveting television. let's move on. i just want to say there riveting television. let's move on. ijust want to say there might be a positive vote of people who actually do care about the eu and who do believe, so that is something to watch. and it is not a story that is talked about a lot in the british media yet. julian assigned, victim, shames labour. this story says it is not about any kind of rape claim, but the extradition is about wikileaks, and he hasn't done anything wrong. i am going to hand over to you on that! we have had
this intervention of the tweed of jeremy corbyn. it has been pretty controversial, hasn't it? it has, there has been a backlash against it. diane abbott very much saying that he needs to, he shouldn't be extradited. criticising the government. their argument is that he exposed atrocities carried out by america and he shouldn't be charged. and it is attack on free speech, an attack onjournalism. he says he is attack onjournalism. he says he is a journalist and it is an attack on journalism. i don't remember him qualifying himself as a journalist before, and when he was arrested on the swedish charges of rape, some of which have expired with the statute of limitations but others that may be revived. what has been revealed is that a woman who was allegedly
sexually assaulted by julian is that a woman who was allegedly sexually assaulted byjulian asante —— julian assange has issued a stinging rebuke to diane abbott. it is interesting that that request for extradition was only formally officially announced an hour or two afterjulian officially announced an hour or two after julian assange had officially announced an hour or two afterjulian assange had been extracted from the embassy. the i is making the point that he will end up facing a tug—of—war between america and sweden, both of whom want him extradited to them. it is an incredible story, those pictures of him being brought out on the embassy, people barely recognise him. i think it is a very difficult political opinion tightrope for politicians to walk. i think what was said about focusing on the allegations, that was probably the best approach to take. i think it is
a risk for diane abbott or indeed anyone else to start questioning the whole process. to be fair to assange, one should add that he categorically denies any guilt. he also claimed in his extradition trial that he had left before he knew there were allegations, he didn't flee the country in that way, and he also claims they are politically motivated. here is one forjoe! a good story. tell us what the story is about. the front page of the sun described someone described as a geek or a nerd spent £150,000 of his company's money that he had fraudulently gained, he spent it in one night on escort and cocaine. i have been to party conferences, i have seen some pretty
crazy nights in my time, but £150,000 fraudulently gained is quite a story. he has subsequently been jailed quite a story. he has subsequently beenjailed for quite a story. he has subsequently been jailed for two and a half yea rs. been jailed for two and a half years. there is a serious side to this. employees at his company, some of them went without pay for five months because of his behaviour. what you didn't say is that the sun says he decided to go out with a bang, and... abang, you say? yes. and he used to live with his parents... just logistically it is an incredible undertaking. if you we re an incredible undertaking. if you were to say to someone, we all remember the 1980s comedy brewster's millions, where he had to spend money in a certain way, that was far less salacious. apparently he
suffers from social awkwardness and low self—esteem. suffers from social awkwardness and low self-esteem. weight, hang on... that is what it was about! were his pa rents that is what it was about! were his parents waiting up for him? there is no information about where this took place. i'm assuming he didn't bring all ten reported escort back to his pa rents all ten reported escort back to his parents house. keep out of joe's way when you go to party conferences! keep out of his way. that is it for the papers tonight. you can see all the papers tonight. you can see all the information online.
good evening. newcastle united are now ten points clear of the relegation zone after a much—needed wind over leicester city. the only goal of the game coming from spanish struck a parent is in the first half. that wind brings newcastle to 13th in the table. —— perez. half. that wind brings newcastle to 13th in the table. -- perez. you can give credit to our players, they we re give credit to our players, they were working so hard, and ifeel like this relationship between players and fans, you could see from the first minute until the last minute the players trying to do their best and the doing the same. some sad football news. former liverpool defender tommy smith has died at the age of 7a. he played a67
games for liverpool and scored 36 times. the most famous of those came in the 1977 european cup final, when liverpool beat brucey which in clatterbuck —— borussia munchengladbach. leicester tigers have boosted their possibility of staving off relegation with a wind at newcastle. defeat leaves the falcons bottom of the table. quickfire scores from chris harris and ta kalua assisted quickfire scores from chris harris and takalua assisted in their victory.

decent sunshine around but it is going to be cold for the time of year, particularly in that stronger wind. gardeners take note, frosty nights as well. many of us will start with frost on saturday morning, away from the north sea coast and most westernmost areas where the wind is continuing to pick up. some gusts in northern ireland of around a0 mph. a breezy picture for some, patchy cloud will develop over parts of eastern england, especially east anglia and south—east england, you may catch a stray shower. if you do there could be some small hail associated. we have reference to the wind, average speeds but gusts will be higher, particularly in the west and especially into northern ireland. around a0 mph. temperatures stuck in single figures especially on the north sea coast. favourable wind directions with temperatures up to 14, directions with temperatures up to 1a, as we have had over the past few days. clear weather overnight and
into sunday but cloud increasing over the far south of england, northern ireland, and on the north sea coast we should avoid a frost, but elsewhere we are in the blue so another forest as sunday begins. 20 of morning sunshine, some showers developing. a stray shower here or there, most places will stay dry. cornwall and northern ireland, expect cloud, you could see some patchy rain out of this weather front but most places will stay dry, with some cloud building during the day. temperatures similar, as is the wind, so it is feeling chilly. however, into next week, still high pressure, low pressure battling, but the orientation changing. as does the orientation changing. as does the wind direction, eventually drawing some warm air from the south. although it is still high pressure and still mainly settled, it is going to feel very different. all of that happens just in time for
