11:30 pm
hello. this is bbc news with geeta guru—murthy. will start in we'll be taking a look at tomorrow v” zlle‘wl "i ‘tfllug bit milder. we will start in pretty mornings papers in a moment. extensive cloud. the blog and low first the headlines. french authorities say notre—dame cloud will break up stop good spells cathedral was just 30 minutes from being completely destroyed by the huge fire of sunshine. temperature is 15 in paris last night. the french government has praised the speed and bravery of hundreds of firefighters degrees, 13 degrees for belfast, 19 who spent the night tackling the blaze to save towards that london and south—east. the ancient building. as the extent of the damage becomes clear, president macron vows to rebuild a bit of cloud blown onto eastern the cathedral within 5 years. in other news: labour wants to abolish tests in primary schools in england, shores. temperatures between five saying children should prepare for life notjust exams. and nine celsius. hi pressure still and more than 200 climate change activists are arrested for blocking roads in central london, amid protests aimed firmly in charge. bursting onto the at shutting down the capital scene. temperatures reaching seven degrees in edinburgh. some of our north sea coasts bit cooler. 12
11:31 pm
degrees, the expected high in hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers aberdeen. the best of the sunshine. will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are the political talking of sunshine, more of that to correspondent for the daily mirror, go around in good friday. we end the nicola bartlett, and the political strategist, jo tanner. week in sunny skies and with high many of tomorrow's front temperatures as well. highs pushing pages are already in. into the high teens and low 20s. 21 and one story, as yesterday, dominates. in edinburgh, 22 in cardiff, and and it's the notre—dame fire. the times says the iconic medieval cathedral was within 30 minutes again, a bit fresher around some of of collapsing. the eastern coasts. saturday looks with a stunning picture like being the dry, sunny day for on the inside of the cathedral most of the uk. we could see a after the fire, the i insists, that notre—dame rises again. change to claudia weather. weather the metro reports that fire crews and a chaplain saved historic artifacts from the blaze. fronts could bring rain here. the there's another powerful picture of the carnage caused other changeable notices, with the by the fire in the guardian. change in the wind direction, our eastern coasts will tend to warm up it says the cathedral but in band, we could see highs "stood defiant". reaching around 2a, 20 five degrees. the telegraph has another image of rubble and debris. for the second half of the holiday it also claims that the home secretary, sajid javid, weekend, we see the weather systems plans to change the law so minor moving off the atlantic, changes the way. that will mean we see rain offences won't need to be reported to employers in future. moving in across northern ireland
11:32 pm
and scotland, preferably saturday the express leads night into sunday, change moving in. on a story about how elderly residents are being, as it reports, cruelly turfed out further south, another dry day on of care homes. sunday and still pretty warm as well the daily mail highlights the number of women, before we see that change to cooler, who are over more unsettled weather. the changes 50 years old and working, has doubled to 5 million. all to do the jetstream. you will and finally, the mirror leads notice this big trough diving on claims that the duchess of sussex who apparently wants an american southwards. it's one of these things where we encroach in an area of low nanny for the birth of her baby. pressure. we not far off getting a cut—off low developing and we could she is due, of course very soon. we get a slow—moving area of low pressure, probably just somewhere get a slow—moving area of low are going to begin with the news pressure, probablyjust somewhere to the south—west of the uk. that would mean the weather stays pretty from france because it is still leading so many of the front pages u nsettled. and starting with the times, it is and starting with the times, it is an extraordinary story because they mean the weather stays pretty unsettled. the timing of the changes open to a bit of uncertainty. that is your weather. notre—dame have suggestions that possibly there was an earlier alert to this fire. it suggests there was an official alarm sounding at 620 which was
11:33 pm
dismissed as a false alarm and it was when the second alarm, half—an—hour later, that services we re half—an—hour later, that services were called. there are three firefighters permanently at notre—dame so that will be serious questions asked. if an alarm went off, how on earth did they not find evidence of a fire starting. those three firemen are probably going to have a lot of questions to answer. we have not seen that story in any of the other papers. the times also saying that emmanuel macron says it will be restored in five years. an eminent architect i spoke to earlier said you start by putting a temporary roof on and planning. potentially five years is ambitious.
11:34 pm
although they do have a lot of money. tycoons and other people pledging hundreds of millions of euros and that is a very bold claim from emmanuel macron but what has given people heart today is giving the reconstruction of york minister, such a loss, but now this amazing building —— york minster. how close it was to total destruction, it really puts things into perspective. that crucial half—an—hour really puts things into perspective. that crucial half—an— hour and really puts things into perspective. that crucial half—an—hour and it could have been so much worse. absolutely. the metro has an image of one of the heroes of the other. the chaplain apparently risked his life by dashing back into the building and went to go and find
11:35 pm
cherished artefacts, including the crown of thorns, which — this guy is obviously incredibly brave but it also turns out he was the priest who entered the battle plan theatre to give last rites. —— bataclan. i am assuming he will get some sort of honourfor his bravery assuming he will get some sort of honour for his bravery because quite an incredible couple of scenes for him to be found in. he knew exactly what was important to get out of there. again this picture of debris on the front. summing up the mood. it has been amazing listening to some of those people interviewed and initially a lot of people said they could not believe it and they wanted to go and see for themselves and be that and there was this kind of
11:36 pm
impromptu singing. whether those are people who would regularly go to itibss or people who would regularly go to mass or something from their childhood but it was a natural outpouring for this grief for this building. 0ne outpouring for this grief for this building. one woman said that she was worried she would not live to see it rebuilt. hopefully the macron commitment will make a good and some of these people will see it rebuilt. everything is grey and charred and then there is this incredibly powerful image with the cross, intact, centrestage, which i am sure give a lot of worshippers great comfort. even though front is a secular country, it has been very interesting, the combination of secular, international outpouring, whether you are christian or not, plus the importance of the place for
11:37 pm
catholics. notre—dame always seemed immortal but nothing is immortal, we know that. we're going to fine because the independent has got reference to brexit, if we dare mention that... everyone is on holidays, i do not know why you are still in london! they say theresa may has no chance of avoiding eu elections and that is a strong view at the moment. i think the government are desperately trying and tried to avoid having these elections because nobody wants them stop we were meant to have left the eu. if they elect these meps, we do not know how long they will end up sitting for. i do not think any other european country wants us to do so because it then will involve another carving up of this. but the
11:38 pm
wheels are in motion. some saying looking forward to them. lots of candidates coming forward. 0bviously people who voted to remain still wa nted people who voted to remain still wanted to fight for that. it is interesting to see. 3000 candidates... if that is true that is huge. but they do not have the same structure as... the brexit party have unveiled a lot of new names. the thing is, is this going to bring new people into politics that can shake things up? any future stars 7 that can shake things up? any future stars? the chances are they could be some people who perhaps had not thought about it before. it has its benefits but it can also have a downsides. in paris that was the key
11:39 pm
to renewing any body politics, getting new blood in an invigorating people and brexit has made everyone political. but elections can be massively bruising. some people who are going to stand do not know what is going to hit them and there is a very tough and deeply personal, often, process. your personal lives are spread often, process. your personal lives are spread across often, process. your personal lives are spread across your often, process. your personal lives are spread across your use often, process. your personal lives are spread across your use papers, they go through things you have said and done in the past. some will get some fantastic experience. they may be battered at the ballot box because of the colours they are wearing rather than individuals but it is going to be an interesting. and obviously we also the local elections which are deeply concerning for all the parties because they do not know how they are going to fair and particularly for theresa may, if it is a
11:40 pm
difficult night in early may, she will have serious questions to answer. jeremy corbyn and his party. a huge split. for all parties trying to have a united front on anything that isn't brexit related... how does anyone hold a partyline window on agrees with that. labour have surprised me and how well they have managed to hold this. i think they have held it together better than the tories, to be honest. that may not hold for very long. the bar is s0 not hold for very long. the bar is so low that labour will look more together simply by contrasting against the tories. to put the counter to that, we have collective
11:41 pm
responsibility in this country and that can mean that you are saying something publicly that privately you do not agree with. in a way, brexit has seen that not happen and it seems more honest. it is but it seems dangerous in terms of getting things done. there is a point where you need a government to be united and make things happen and when your side is sabotaging you that we have had a situation where cabinet meetings have been breached. it is not a great example and does not hold politicians in great esteem and i think it is dangerous. it leads to whether we will see a fall in the two major big pillows and whether parties are going to split along brexit lines and new parties will get more power. the 2017 election
11:42 pm
was meant to be the brexit election and it was not, really, at all. 0ver 80% voted for the two main parties. you have more choice but i still do not know... they are on their knees, really. a party his position has been crystal clear from the start... but people often vote out of habit. 0r but people often vote out of habit. or else they do not vote because they are sick of politics. there is a worry that people say, what is the point in voting because they will not do what we want and we could have massive apathy. it is a plague on everyone's houses if that happens. we will find out in may. the daily mail is talking about women in the work place. they've
11:43 pm
gone with the unusual headline about women who can't stop working. it says that the number of women in work has risen to a record 15.4 million and they are suggesting a key factor is the surgeon the number of older women working. it's affected by the rise in the state pension age. we can see the logic. it's a very simplistic argument to suggest that's the only reason and i think there are women that are in there over 50 years that have actually said, i want to keep working, it gives me independence. with the rising divorce rates, there are probably people who have to work because of their own financial arrangements. i have some sympathy with that suggestion. i suspect there are some women who probably do relish the opportunity. i do think often with the daily mail, you're damned if you do, damned if you
11:44 pm
don't. they are talking about a re cord don't. they are talking about a record few women staying at home. their families can afford to. i think that's always a difficulty with employment figures, the narrative behind it. i'm sure everyone's been asked if they want to be at work or not. i'm sure they haven't. wide you are here, and it's late on tuesday night. the daily telegraph is got this line about criminals being handed a clean slate. it's trying to reform part of the process when you've had smaller crimes committed. i think it's really interesting that sajid javid has come forward with this idea and
11:45 pm
he was speaking in connection to knife crime. it's of thinly veiled leadership pitch. he was talking about his own ringing and he said he could have done a life of criminality. he had strong family and good teachers. maybe what that's getting at here. you make a mistake when you are young, and they can change the whole point. it's bizarre because this is a period where we should be saying to people, don't do it. it could be a blight on the rest of your life stop instead, we are saying, it's all right, we will let you off and it won't affect you. we've got to come down one way or another on this. we've got a serious problem with knife crime. kids that
11:46 pm
are effectively being asked to carry them, making some very dubious decisions. retaliations after attacks and things where they are not thinking about the consequences. personally, i think it's a very dangerous road to go down because we need to be saying to young people, carrying a knife is extremely dangerous and you could kill somebody. it's not something you do because it's clever, it's not a fashion accessory, it's extremely dangerous. would one of these offences, a minor offence be in possession of a weapon? i don't know. we are going to end with another story in the telegraph. after anti brexit campaigners handed out you've lags. i think it's kind of funny out you've lags. i think it's kind offunny in out you've lags. i think it's kind of funny in a way. they are
11:47 pm
traditionally, it's usually a union jack. if that's not a political event, personally i don't know what is. at the end of it,... what i think is interesting is the way the eu flag has become a symbol for people. it's not something anybody felt particularly any allegiance to. this might actually get them all the way from westminster for a day. i think we should let them all go. let them have a day out. they will avoid westminster for a bit. them have a day out. they will avoid westminsterfora bit. i've been hit by so many flags walking down by parliament, they just waved by so many flags walking down by parliament, theyjust waved them all the time. we are all for balance at the time. we are all for balance at the bbc. we will work out how that is going to go. ijust have to say,
11:48 pm
which put all team are you going for? we are part of the parliamentary women's team and we will be heading to france. we are back soon. all the front pages, seven days a week. 0n the bbc news website. it's all there for you — 7 days a week at bbc dot co uk —— thank you you nicola bartlett and jo tanner. it's goodnight from us. good evening — this is your latest sports news. barcelona — and lionel messi — put on a masterclass at the nou camp, crushing manchester united 4—0 over two legs, to make the semi—finals. two goals from lionel messi — and phillipe coutinho sent united packing — with the spanish side the favourites to win the competition. 0ur sports correspondent
11:49 pm
natalie pirks reports. they said they were here for the love, not the glory. but 5,000 united fans would just love to pull off another european surprise. improbable, yes. but not impossible. the past is the past and the future is the future. the future is red and we will win the game tonight. mountains are there to be climbed. so hopefully, tonight, we will climb a mountain. there was confidence bordering on arrogance at camp nou. wouldn't it be rude of united to crash the party? but united's flame was soon extinguished. ashley young turned into trouble and things were about to get messy. that was lionel‘s 23rd goal against english teams. his 24th came courtesy of a collector's item. david de gea, so often united's saviour, could only look on in horror
11:50 pm
as the tame shot eluded him and ended united's semifinal dreams. remarkably, it was to get worse. ex—liverpool player philippe coutinho with the pick of the bunch. alexi sanchez almost pulled off a consolation in his old hunting ground, but the night belonged to one man, as it so often does. well — what a story to tell you about in turin. ajax came from a goal down to beatjuventus 2—1 and reach the semi—finals for the first time in 22 years. austin halewood watched the action. this season, ajax have made a habit of upsetting the odds. they beat madrid and in juventus's of upsetting the odds. they beat madrid and injuventus's backyard, they threw everything at the italians but toppling the old lady in turin is a difficult task, mainly because they got him. who else but cristiano ronaldo with the opening goal, his sixth of the competition
11:51 pm
s0 goal, his sixth of the competition so far in mark but this young dutch side play without fear and the know—how to finish. donny vander back calmly levelling the tie and still, they continue to press. donny going close again in the second half before turin fell silent in shock. the captain, just 19, heading his tea m the captain, just 19, heading his team into the semifinals of the champions league. the old lady of juventus, downed by the young boys of ajax. it's also been a crucial night in the premier league — in the battle to avoid relegation. cardiff have beaten brighton by 2 goals to nil at the amex. it's a huge win for neil warnock‘s side — who are nowjust 2 points from safety, with 4 games to play. cardiff took the lead through nathaniel mendez—laing in the first half. they made it two, when captain sean morrison scored just after half time, his first of the season. brighton had their chances — glenn murray hit the bar
11:52 pm
in stoppage time. but the win gives cardiff some hope of survival. everybody knew how big it is. we we re everybody knew how big it is. we were relegated, really, if we lose the game today. we're not going to catch pay points from anybody at list level so it makes interesting, really. we don't give up and i said we scored two good goals but we played some good stuff as well. we heard from a few pundits today saying it would be our final heard from a few pundits today saying it would be ourfinal game in the premier league but we are alive and kicking. ireland's katie taylor has been given the chance to become the women's undisputed lightweight world champion. she'll face belgium's delfine persoon on june the first. it'll be on the undercard of anthony joshua's fight with jarrell miller in new york's madison square garden. taylor possesses three of the lightweight titles while persoon holds the wbc belt. whoever wins the fight will become only the third undisputed champion in women's boxing history. that's all the sport for now. the many parts of the country, it
11:53 pm
was a cloudy day on tuesday, even some rain and drizzle around as well but over the next few days, there will be more sunshine more widely and for all of us, it's going to be turning warmer and that sunshine as well. there is some cloud on the scene as well, it shouldn't really bother us and we'll bring some cool, wet weather into iberia. this cloud brought the rain and drizzle earlier on, still a bit of dampness for western scotland, cloud breaking further south and that means mr hogg patches through wales, the midlands and southern england stop they will ta ke and southern england stop they will take a few hours to clear in the morning. the drizzle soon moves away from western scotland. in the cloud bubbles up from east anglia, towards the pennines, and it mayjust squeeze a light shower from that but on the whole, it's a dry afternoon with some sunshine and warmer than it was on tuesday, highs of 19, maybe 20 degrees. the only downside with all this temperature and sunshine, high pollen levels we will see on sunshine, high pollen levels we will see on wednesday across england and wales in particular. through the evening and overnight, clear skies
11:54 pm
for a while but low cloud developing over some of these north sea coasts, pushing its way further inland. misty and murky over the hills. perhaps a bit chilly in rural areas. as we had over the next few days, we are going to find warmer weather pushing across the whole of the country. air is coming from central europe. as we looked to thursday, we still have missed in low cloud to start the day which will tend to break up. some patches of cloud here and there. most places will be enjoying the sunshine. a bit more chilly perhaps around some north sea coasts but those temperatures rising in general 217 degrees in glasgow and around 21,22 over in general 217 degrees in glasgow and around 21, 22 over the south of england. 0n and around 21, 22 over the south of england. on friday, there is hardly any cloud around at all. this gentle south, south—easterly breeze which is pushing the warmth northwards. eyes of 22 or 20 34 the north—west
