11:30 pm
at least it hasn't been a washout but it has been a pretty chilly affair. temperatures below average and u nfortu nately temperatures below average and unfortunately that's where they'll stay for the remainder of this week to stop it is pretty wet weather around mid week to boot. why is it so around mid week to boot. why is it so chilly at the moment? basically, we are sitting in air which is sourced from the arctic, north of the airstream. mild areas trip to the airstream. mild areas trip to the south and it doesn't make its way to our shores for the cause of this week. by the end of the period, though, it looks like we could have a slightly different story. for tuesday, however, still cloud a wound thanks to the remnants of weather front across northern parts of england, the midlands and wales. heftier showers breaking out to the south. listen to spells of sunshine but highs even in thatjust 15 degrees. a chilly day to come across scotland. towards the end of the day, cloud is gathering in the south—west head of this deep area of low pressure which will bring a wet and windy day for all areas i think on wednesday. but a nagging easterly

wind of the north he as well to the north of that low, running across scotland, wintry weather in the far north. heavy rain further south. writer conditions moving into the south later on in the day — make brighter. also pudgy showers. —— brighter. also pudgy showers. —— brighter. heavy showers. it will be the case for much of the north sea coastal region. wednesday and into thursday and friday, below will slowly work its way out into the north sea. a bit of as to how that low centre will pull away. at the moment, it looks unsettled across the northern half of the uk, at least on thursday. and quite a cutting northerly wind blowing in behind the low. to the south, occasional showers, some sunny spells but still disappointing temperatures. remember, we are on the cooler side of the jet. with the rain in the north, we would be lucky to get double figures. friday, on the face of it, great improvement on
11:32 pm
the face of it, great improvement on the way the weather looks. cloudy across eastern scotland, to the north—east of england and the wind across north sea coast will again feel chilly. not dry overall but a close eye for the chance of heavy rain to run into the far south later on friday and saturday. here is the change as we move through next weekend. behind the area of low pressure we will pick up a northerly flow. chilly first thing next weekend and further on, the jet strea m weekend and further on, the jet stream buckles to the north and high pressure builds from the south and as it does, we move to the warm side of the jet and as it does, we move to the warm side of thejet and air as it does, we move to the warm side of the jet and air from the atlantic and it should feel milder. even perhaps warm for a time. this is the outlook for next weekend and into next week. average temperatures to look ——to start off. remove the milderair infrom look ——to start off. remove the milder air in from the south and temperatures up to perhaps 20

11:34 pm
this is a bbc news. in a moment we will be taking a look through the papers with my guests but first the headlines. duchess of sussex has given birth to a baby boy. prince
11:35 pm
harry says he is incredibly proud of his wife. as every father and a pa rent his wife. as every father and a parent would ever say, your baby is absolutely amazing but this little thing is absolutely delightful so i am just over the moon. a million species face extinction and human beings are to blame. the pilot of a russian plane that burst into flames and emergency landed says it was hit by lightning. hello, and welcome at our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. john crowley and recently with me. —— recently. ruth
11:36 pm
lee. prince harry paying tribute to his wife saying they are absolutely delighted with the arrival of an amazing baby son. donald trump threatens to increase tariffs on all chinese imports and is clearly unnerving global markets. and it is a beaming prince harry pictured on the front of the metro as he shares his baby joyce the front of the metro as he shares his babyjoyce news from the grounds of windsor. the same picture on the front of the guardian. but also heeding the warning that we are facing a threat to natural life and it is all ourfault. facing a threat to natural life and it is all our fault. the facing a threat to natural life and it is all ourfault. the duke facing a threat to natural life and it is all our fault. the duke shows hisjoy at the it is all our fault. the duke shows his joy at the arrival of his son. under the nhs to have a recruiting
11:37 pm
drive. health chiefs admitting they are failing to plan for elderly care. that was the front of the times. many of the papers are leading onto that fantastic news for the duke and duchess of sussex. the sun... we have the sun and conflicting reports about where baby sussex was born. the sun's headline, sunrise at windsor. they are describing how the baby was born at 5:26am just as the sun was coming up. sun shines on the righteous. the stroke of sunrise... you have the stroke of sunrise... you have the stroke of sunrise... you have the stroke of a bell... nevermind. it just about works. he is so proud and
11:38 pm
absolutely beaming. it is the front of the daily mail we get a slight indication that there is a question mark over the location of the birth? they suggest she was driven to the portland hospital on sunday afternoon where she gave birth. she was overdue so they were getting rather concerned about the baby so it seemed sensible to take her to hospital. then they went back so harry could give his speech to the press looking as though he was there all along. hospital birth it seems like which is a sensible. buckingham palace saying meghan markle had gone into labour several days after the baby had been born. i do not know, perhaps they did that and we do not
11:39 pm
know why but my speculation is to get the media circus to get to windsor. how would you get them that if you do not give them something, a story. this is the story i think will be emerging, the story tomorrow morning, because, if you excuse the pun, confusion appears to rein between what buckingham palace was saying and what harry was saying afterwards. it doesn't seem strange that buckingham palace did announce 40 that buckingham palace did announce a0 minutes before the birth that this had happened. it may not matter at all, it is just a joyous occasion but it is interesting that she went to the hospital up the road from
11:40 pm
here in central london and of the fa ct here in central london and of the fact that they did that on sunday afternoon, without anyone knowing, again, just shows how they are wanting to do it on their own terms. there is no live blog, running commentary and, as other newspapers intimate, she has the right to do exactly as she wants. i suppose buckingham palace were taking the lead from harry because he has managed to closely and carefully. yes. they made the formal announcement which is protocol. you we re announcement which is protocol. you were saying this is an international story because everybody, i think, has a piece of harry and megan —— because what they represent, because of the mixed culture and background,
11:41 pm
suddenly the commonwealth, people can directly relate. absolutely. the new york times are saying that this is the first biracial baby in modern times which is a great thing, suggesting a monarchy that is looking forward, that is innovative and the way they have gone about it, they haven't done it on their own terms which is why — it is pure speculation — but is something between what buckingham palace was saying and what they were saying. meghan wanted to have the baby at home which is royal convention but there are others who have been born in hospital. an international
11:42 pm
person, is that talk of them going to africa? that was a story. they have a huge tie to the continent. to africa? that was a story. they have a huge tie to the continentm makes a lot of sense. they did not deny the rumours. if there was nothing in it they would have come out very strongly. this young couple with their child, and they have been allowed to do this in their own way because they are not in a direct line of succession. harry is thinking, what do i do next? there has been talk about a slight disagreement between the cambridge and sussex households... if you believe them a... if you believe the press and them going abroad would be an interesting thing. something we can believe because he has tweeted it. president trump and he is
11:43 pm
unnerving the world markets. how risky strategy is this? a couple of reasons behind this. donald trump is trying to contain china and the rise of china which trump sees as a threat to the united states. what he has done is already imposing some tariffs — 10% some higher then he said he was going to put it up to 2596 said he was going to put it up to 25% to quite a lot and then he decided to postpone it. all parts of his negotiating techniques. now he has a slightly rock market with the 25% figure. he is trying to get concession out of china. the second reason for behaving like this towards china is that he is still on the campaign trail. you think back to his campaign back in 2016 when he
11:44 pm
was going about making america great again, the implication is if you control the impulse coming in from china, somehow this will make the rustbelt in america flow again. i think there is no evidence for saying that economically. big tariffs actually makes products more expensive in the us. he has this twin thing about promoting america and constraining china. politically it is sensible thing to do domestically. he has not yet found time to tweet his congratulations to the duke and duchess of sussex. as the duke and duchess of sussex. as the financial times illustrated, all these tweets coming outjust as the chinese are sending 100 strong
11:45 pm
delegation to washington. it is pulling the rug under the carpet. this is his strategy. strong arm tactics. putting people on the back foot. it kind of seems to work for him. can you carry on with huawei. a segue into huawei. the former attorney general, dominic reeve, saying that it would be an unconscionable and unforgivable threat to the five eyes alliance is. to enter into an agreement with huawei to build part of the 5g mobile phone network. we had news about the leg from the committee and
11:46 pm
so forth by the actual decision that seems to have been made was that the uk government was open to allowing huawei to have some access to the 5g on the fringes. this, the chairman of the intelligence security committee, he says this is com pletely committee, he says this is completely wrong and he's to meet mike pompeo the secretary of state at if you share any secret or data with huawei you are off the grid with huawei you are off the grid with the us and, as we were saying, that would concentrate british minds a lot more than a cabinet debate if the us says we're not going to share any data with you if you enter into any data with you if you enter into any agreement with huawei. that will influence a decision. significant that it influence a decision. significant thatitis influence a decision. significant that it is coming from him? from dominic reeve?
11:47 pm
he knows if the uk government goes along with huawei then america will cut us off. trump is partly doing this with huawei because of china and it goes back to the story we've just been talking about. it is all about trump, well, a lot of it is about trump, well, a lot of it is about trump, well, a lot of it is about trump actually containing china. there is another aspect to this, that huawei has contact with the communist government and they are obligated to share security information with them. we don'tjust dismiss it. basically, dominic grieve is going along with trump and say look, if we do this with huawei, the states will not say they won't show —— share any security risks with you and that will go for australia and canada and new zealand as well. an urgent threat from the loss of earth's natural life. and we're causing it. this is a landmark
11:48 pm
un study, three years in the making, over 400 cited have attributed to this report. —— scientists. the findings are incredibly stark. 0ne third of sorry, one 10th of insects are likely to go extinct and we are the root cause of this. extinction rebellion, the green deal negotiated, something left of centre politics in the state, it is really at the centre of the conversation. the time is over, the oversimplification of it, we should have done this already because of this is what these scientists are saying. will be out, though? i
11:49 pm
wonder if this is exaggerating the problems but nevertheless, there is real truth in this as well. basically, the logic of their report is that so many of the natural habitats have been destroyed stop there's been a lot of deforestation, a lot of draining of the wetlands. this has had a knock—on effect with species. 1 million species disappearing. we don't know the timescale. crucially, one of those species are bees. they are saying if you don't have bees, you don't pollinate the crops and then you damage the crops. they are notjust thinking about the damage to the species but talking about the knock—on effects for agriculture. that is why they are saying that humanity is facing an urgent threat. they are coming up with things you can do. helping to ferment the growth of these. — —— bees. what can you do? theirargument growth of these. — —— bees. what can you do? their argument as well as that everyone can do small little
11:50 pm
things to make a difference. they just need the policy makers to follow through, don't they? let's finish up with social media. apparently, it doesn't make our teenagers unhappy, its all down to sloppy science. this goes against the grain but this is a peer—reviewed report from oxford university. 12,000 students between ten and 15 were interviewed. when they were asked if social media is causing a crisis, and if it is affecting their mental health. the answer, according to this study, is no. which again is something that we really haven't heard over the last few months and years. there has been lots of reports, lots of anecdotal evidence from people saying social media's having a really harmful effect. i am a parent of younger kids, not teenage age just yet but certainly we are coming under the pressure for the youngest one to have a mobile phone and we are absolutely resisting. you have had
11:51 pm
fairly high profile cases where children have been severely damaged a social media as well so it is a serious issue. but the general conclusion is that children are pretty robust, pretty adaptable. if social media doesn't make them unhappy i would say, well, why not? isa unhappy i would say, well, why not? is a very adult world and i think pa rents a re is a very adult world and i think parents are having to get up to speed with whether teenagers are as well. they are ahead of the game. sometimes a look at the way teenagers use their mobile phones andi teenagers use their mobile phones and i amjust teenagers use their mobile phones and i am just staggered by it. with and i am just staggered by it. with a different world. it is. it is a scary world, i don't like it. ruth and john, its been a pleasure. thank you very much indeed. that's it for the papers tonight. don't forget all the papers tonight. don't forget all the front pages are online for you. just visit the website seven days a week, bbc.co.uk/papers. and have a look at the bbc iplayer. lots of other programmes there as well.
11:52 pm
good evening. this is your latest sports news. it was his first goal of the season and one of the best you will ever see but most importantly, it may have one manchester city at title. captain vincent company broke the deadlock against leicester in the 70th minute to give his side at one point lead over liverpool going into sunday's final day of the season. it was always likely to be a night of tension. 0ne it was always likely to be a night of tension. one where you wouldn't be sitting comfortable and for the first half, it was edge of your seat
11:53 pm
stuff where the margin seemed finer than ever. sergio aguero was as close as manchester city got. pep guardiola remained in pressed. it is further and further away, setting up base camp in the leicester hearth. sterling, over, patients running out. aguero, saved. time running out. aguero, saved. time running out. the goal. the moment of this season that will be replayed again. and again. and again. blue moon rising. ascending back to the top of the table. also the story goes. leicester had a chance to ruin the fairytale. nothing could demise city tonight. sitting company, gather around, there could still be one more twist in this one. after all, who could have predicted that? an
11:54 pm
outstanding second half. knowing what we were playing for. i'm sure for many people, we are still there. its not about the amount, its about when you score them. today, it was necessary. we played against a very strong team. we played it ——we found it difficult. from the start, i thought we had the right intensity and the desire to go and win this game. we made some very important to saves and you know, only i can defeat casper, right? on a day like today. this is how it looks at the top of the table going into the final day on saturday. city has a one point lead over liverpool. pep guardiola's side will travel to brighton while the reds host walls — make brighton while the reds host walls — ma ke wolves brighton while the reds host walls — make wolves at anfield. there might
11:55 pm
bea make wolves at anfield. there might be a semi—final against barcelona. they will be without mo salah as they try to turn around a 3—0 lead. mo salah left on a stretcher. it has been a night to remember forjudd trump as he has won his first snooker world championship. he won againstjohn higgins. he moved within one frame of victory and secured the trophy in the very next frame. it means that he completes snookehs frame. it means that he completes snooker‘s triple crown winning the world championship, the uk championship and the masters. world championship, the uk championship and the mastersm world championship, the uk championship and the masters. it was an amazing final. i think the standard from the very first session, the very first ball, john
