this is bbc news. i'm shaun ley. the headlines at 6pm: borisjohnson and michael gove — who campaigned for brexit together, but fell out three years ago when both wanted to become prime minister — will again contest the conservative party leadership. i will be putting my name forward to be prime minister of this country. i believe i'm ready to unite the conservative and unionist party, ready to deliver brexit and ready to lead this great country. the latest to enter the race to succeed theresa may and become prime minister by the end ofjuly include dominic raab and andrea leadsom. final voting in the eu elections in underway in 21 member states — results will be released after polls close at 10 pm tonight. a man and a woman are charged with murder after two children died following an "incident" at a house in sheffield on friday.
6:01 pm
after the bbc reveals evidence of abuse at a care home for people with disabilities, a former inspector says he raised serious concerns more than 3 years ago. what was evident was a very poor culture, and that was firmly written within that august 2015 report. a ringside seat at the wrestling for president trump, on an official visit to japan. found alive after being missing for two weeks in a hawaiian forest — the hiker who says she faced difficult choices. hamilton wins the monaco grand prix! and coming up on sportsday at 6.30pm, lewis hamilton dedicates his grand prix victory in monaco today to his inspiration, the late niki lauda.
6:02 pm
good evening. welcome to bbc news. the environment secretary, michael gove, hasjoined the race to become the next conservative leader and prime minister. it means he'll be facing off against borisjohnson. the two men fell out, after helping lead the campaign to leave the european union in 2016. today, the former brexit secretary, dominic raab — who's also in the running to replace theresa may — insisted the uk must leave the eu in october, with or without a deal, and andrea leadsom, who resigned from cabinet last week, has also confirmed she's standing. eight mps have now confirmed they will stand, with the party hoping to have a new prime minister in place by the end ofjuly. our chief political correspondent, vicki young, reports now from westminster. stepping forward for another crack at the top job. today, michael govejoined a growing list of hopefuls. hi, good morning. good morning. i can confirm that i will be
6:03 pm
putting my name forward to be prime minister of this country. i believe that i'm ready to unite the conservative and unionist party, ready to deliver brexit and ready to lead this great country. that means mr gove will clash again with borisjohnson, the man he sat alongside as they campaigned for brexit, but who he fell out with in spectacular style when the tory party were looking for a new leader three years ago. for all boris‘s formidable talents, he was not the right person for that task. that dramatic intervention torpedoed mrjohnson‘s campaign. these days, there are plenty of new pro—brexit faces making their pitch to be prime minister. dominic raab insists he won't delay the uk's eu departure again, promising to leave with or without a deal on october 31st. i will not ask for an extension. of course, if parliament legislates, then we will be in a difficult position. but as the institute for government set out today, it's a very difficult for parliament now to legislate against no—deal,
6:04 pm
or in favour of a further extension, unless the executive, unless a resolute prime minister is willing to acquiesce on that. and i would not. other candidates agree that no—deal must be an option. of course, in order to succeed in a negotiation, you have to be prepared to leave without a deal. but i have a three—point plan for brexit, for how we get out of the european union. i'm very optimistic about it. my role as leader of the commons means i have had a very good insight into what needs to be done. esther mcvey goes even further, ruling out any renegotiation with brussels. we won't be asking for any more extensions. that's part of the corrosive uncertainty that individuals, business and the country don't want. so that date is fixed. so of course we have to say we need to make sure that we are ready to leave on that date. now, if the eu wanted to come back to us, the door is open, if they want to have a better deal. that's fine, we've always wanted a free trade agreement. mps, though, have voted overwhelmingly against a no—deal brexit more than once. something would—be leaders should bear in mind, says the chancellor.
6:05 pm
a prime minister who ignores parliament cannot expect to survive very long. and he refused to rule out voting down a conservative prime minister who pursued a policy of no—deal. would you vote against your own government on the confidence motion in those circumstances? in 22 years in parliament, i have never voted against the conservative whip, unlike many of my colleagues. and i don't want to have to start now contemplating such a course of action. it's just two days since theresa may announced her resignation date. today, she was at church while candidates vied for herjob. all needing a brexit solution that she failed to find. let's talk now to vicki, still at westminster. we are sort of getting a shape of the contest, but not a shape of how it is going to go on the party. how will they whittle down these candidates? the process
6:06 pm
will be mps will have to decide which two candidates they put onto the final ballot. remember, ultimately its conservative party members who will decide next prime minister is. they will be giving a choice of two candidates by mps. that is really important in all of this, because it does put a dilemma in front of all the contenders. tory party grassroots members tend to be much more in favour of brexit itself but also don't have such a problem about a no—deal brexit. to appeal to them to can the job about a no—deal brexit. to appeal to them to can thejob in about a no—deal brexit. to appeal to them to can the job in the first place, tory candidates are going to have to be a little bit gung ho about brexit for some the problem is, though, here in parliament, it's a very different story, and it was a very fascinating insight to hear the chancellor philip hammond they're not actually ruling out the possibility on a confidence vote, and your member what that means, voting on whether you want that prime minister to carry on in that job, not ruling out bringing that prime minister down. the state of
6:07 pm
parliament as it is, it would only ta ke parliament as it is, it would only take four or five conservatives willing to do that, because they file no—deal brexit would be so damaging to their country, and that would be the end. this is a very tricky situation for all of this candidates as they tried to come up with some kind of solution to this kind of intractable problem which brought down theresa may after three yea rs of brought down theresa may after three years of trying. and just in terms of the contest ahead, how much risk is there that it turns into what justine greening said earlier, a kind of beauty contests among our brexiteers? it's kind of inevitable, isn't it? because brexit hasn't been resolved, this going to be all kinds about that. in reality, this is all about that. in reality, this is all about brexit. that deadline of october 31 is still there. some are saying there are candidates trying
6:08 pm
to negotiate the withdrawal agreement theresa may god. time is limited. in terms of getting the agreement passed in july, limited. in terms of getting the agreement passed injuly, the palm entry recess in the summer. there is only a couple of weeks apartments before you get to the party conferences. suddenly that timing is looking extremely tight for anyone saying they want to renegotiate the withdrawal agreement, let alone the fa ct withdrawal agreement, let alone the fact it they won't —— the you have said they won't. vicki young, chief political correspondence, in westminster. thank you very much. voters in 21 european union countries are voting today to select new meps. seven countries — including the uk — have already voted, but the results will only be revealed once polls have closed across the eu. here's our europe correspondent, damian grammaticas. the uk was in the first wave of countries to vote in these eu elections, and the uk results, out this evening, will be watched for how far the handling of brexit may have
6:09 pm
impacted the share of votes won by the conservatives and labour, and how people are divided between pro and anti—brexit parties. across europe, half a dozen more nations — this is latvia — have also already voted. today, ballots are being cast in 21 more eu member states. in some countries, it is migration that is the top concern. elsewhere, the numbers of young people unemployed. here in northern france, it's a contest between president macron's pro—eu movement and the anti—eu nationalists of the former national front that's being watched. translation: i'm going to vote - it's my duty as a citizen — but i don't know who for yet. translation: this vote will be an important pointer for future elections. it will give an idea who might come out on top. the official eu results will be released when polls close this evening. and damian sent us this
6:10 pm
update from brussels. iam here i am here at the european parliament election centre where they are waiting for those results to come in. as you say can they know those uk meps will be coming back here evenif uk meps will be coming back here even if only for a few weeks in july, two october, that will influence the balance of the parliament here which will in turn influence the bargaining that's now going to take place for the top jobs, the replacements for jean—claude juncker and donald tusk, and that's important for the uk. here, what they will be watching even more than that, the continent wide results. some early indications just this evening, exit polls from different countries, have led greens in germany and ireland to believe they are positioned to do well, socialist thinking they might do well in the netherlands and the conservatives in austria. it's going to be the balance between the central forces that are always dominating here in the far right comedy far —— the far right comedy
6:11 pm
far left. one other thing— how well does emmanuel macron do with his pro—eu vote? damian grammaticas reporting. and you can follow the results of the european elections with huw edwards and the team, from 10pm tonight on bbc one and the bbc news channel, and all the results will on our website, too. a former inspector at the care quality commission says a report into whorlton hall hospital, carried out nearly four years before bbc panorama revealed alleged abuse of patients with learning disabilities and autism, raised concerns about the unit, but was not published. ten care workers have been arrested in a police investigation. our social affairs correspondent alison holt reports. whorlton hall hospital in county durham now stands empty following the allegations in the panorama programme that some staff were bullying and intimidating patients with learning disabilities or autism. the current owners, who took over injanuary, have moved all patients elsewhere.
6:12 pm
the undercover reporter found a disturbing culture in this privately—run nhs—funded hospital. when i look to the notification, it raised a number of concerns... in 2015, barry wilkinson raised an inspection of the hospital for the regulator, the care quality commission. he says it raised concerns about the culture then. in nearly a decade of working for the cqc, he wrote scores of inspection reports. he says this was the only one which was not published. what was evident was a very poor culture, and that was firmly written within that august 2015 report, and i strongly believe that anybody that can understand organisational culture reading that report would agree that there was definitely warning bells there. what was your reaction when you saw the programme? i was extremely upset.
6:13 pm
because... this should have been listened to back in 2015. in a statement, the cqc says... they continue... the regulator says a new comprehensive inspection carried out later rated the hospital as good overall. the cqc says it's commissioning a review into what they need to learn from what's happened. a man and a woman have been charged with murder after two children died in an incident at a house in sheffield on friday. earlier, our correspondent
6:14 pm
phil bodmer updated us on the story. police and paramedics were called to a semi—detached property six miles north of the city centre on friday morning at around 7.30am. neighbours reported seeing numerous police and ambulance activity on the street. six children were taken to hospital. police later said two teenage boys, aged 13 and 1a, had died. now, a 37—year—old man and a 34—year—old woman were arrested on suspicion of murder on friday. yesterday afternoon, police announced that the four children, including a seven—month—old baby, had been discharged from hospital. but today, south yorkshire police have announced that the two people arrested on friday have now been charged with two counts of murder each. and the woman faces three counts of attempted murder. they will appear before sheffield magistrates‘ court tomorrow morning. postmortem examinations were due to be carried out on friday, but so far, no results have been made public. phil bodmer there.
6:15 pm
government sources have told bbc news there have been serious expressions of interest from buyers for british steel, which was placed in compulsory liquidation on wednesday. newspaper reports that the government has set a two—week deadline for a sale have been dismissed. but that's been dismissed by sources. it's understood uk as well as foreign firms have made enquiries. a 17—year—old boy has become the fourth person to be charged with the murder ofjodie chesney. jodie, who was 17, was stabbed to death in a park in east london in march. investigators say the fourth person to be arrested has been charged with murder and with possession of a stun gun. a powerful magnitude 8.0 earthquake has hit a remote part of the amazon jungle in peru, the most powerful to hit the country in 12 years. the quake struck in the early hours of sunday morning, collapsing buildings and knocking out power in some areas. tremors were felt hundreds of miles away in the capital lima, where people ran out of their homes in fear. some injuries, but no deaths, have been reported. it is just approaching 16 minutes
6:16 pm
past 6pm. the headlines on bbc news: boris johnson and michael gove, the two figureheads of the official leave campaign, challenge each other for the conservative party leadership. polling in the eu elections ends tonight. 21 member states are voting today. results will be released after polls close at 10pm. a man and a woman are charged with murder after two children died following an incident at a house in sheffield on friday. us president donald trump has dismissed concerns over recent missile tests by north korea. in a tweet, he referred to them as "small weapons". meanwhile, as part of the lavish welcome laid on for him by the japanese prime minister shinzo abe,
6:17 pm
singh he attended the final of a sumo wrestling tournament. here's our tokyo correspondent rupert wingfield—hayes. it is a little different from the sort of wrestling mr trump is used to seeing back in the united states. sumo is japan's national sport, and it is steeped in tradition. one is that spectators are supposed to sit on cushions on the floor, and not on armchairs. but tradition was set aside today, as, for the first time ever, a foreign leader was allowed onto the hallowed earth of the sumo ring and present the champion with a special cup. president trump is getting a lot of firsts during this trip — first to meet the new japanese emperor, first to sit on a chair during a sumo tournament and to present a special prize to the grand champion. it is, of course, not without reason. japan is nervous that mr trump is not quite as committed to his asian ally as some of his predecessors. it is particularly worried about mr trump's friendship with north korean dictator kim jong—un. earlier this month, north korea testfired a new short—range missile into the sea of japan, flouting un sanctions.
6:18 pm
today, president trump dismissed the test, tweeting. .. still, tonight, mr trump and his japanese host were all smiles as they were joined for dinner by their wives. tomorrow is really the main event, a very important event in the history ofjapan. that main event is meeting japan's newly—enthroned emperor naruhito. mr trump will be the first world leader to do so, something he appears extremely happy about. rupert wingfield—hayes, bbc news, in tokyo. a british man has died following a collision between two yachts near cannes. the man, 29, was a crew member on board the minx vessel, and is reported to have suffered a heart attack. the incident happened as another yacht tried to manoeuvre past the minx. police are investigating the incident which happened
6:19 pm
on the last night of the cannes film festival. at least two people have been killed after a powerful tornado swept through a small town near oklahoma city. authorities have spent the evening sifting through the damage, fearing the death toll will rise. freya cole reports. oklahoma is no stranger to tornadoes, but when one with such ferocity hits, it is near impossible, even for seasoned residents, to prepare for the worst. it was pretty intense. we had a lot of patrons on the patio. we started seeing tents overturned, chairs overturned, and heavy, heavy rain all of a sudden. the storm front swept through this caravan park, displacing dozens of people, and flattened this budget motel in el reno. rescue workers spent the night searching the rubble for survivors. they've been told more than 30 people were inside. i've been on—site. it is very traumatic.
6:20 pm
i think you will see, the daylights. .. i think you will see, the daylight... that is what we are waiting on right now. check all of our information out and you'll see how dramatic it is when the daylight shines on it. it is feared the death toll will rise. authorities are now tasked with notifying victims‘ families and helping oklahoma rebuild. freya cole, bbc news. university tuition fees in england could go down to £7,500. that's expected to be one of the main recommendations of a review to be published later this week. but universities say any decrease in fees would have to be replaced by direct funding to avoid student experience suffering. and as our education editor bra nwen jeffreys reports, the review is also expected to suggest ways in which technical and vocational routes could be made more attractive to students through better support. louis is in his second year at salford uni, studying for a degree after working in construction. he thinks it's worth it,
6:21 pm
but says others are put off — by living costs as well as tuition fees. i've got a few friends who've got the qualification to come onto a first year of the construction course, but it's the fee that is ultimately stopping them, and how are they going to be able to live? and it is so, so important... students only pay back when earning as graduates, but political concern it feels too expensive is behind this review. universities fear a cut in tuition fee for students won't be replaced by the government. if you want your graduates to go out there, be able to operate the leading technology in the workspace, it's no good giving them training on a computer that's six years old, or a piece of equipment that's six years old. you're hanging your capital requirements, and the speed of turnover is much quicker now. but this isn't just about degrees. the cost of going to university has been one of the big political
6:22 pm
debates of recent years. but this review has always been focused on another problem — why is it we spend so much supporting people who study for a degree, and so little on people studying for the technical and vocational qualifications that employers are crying out for? she is studying engineering at harlow college. unlike a uni student, she can't get a loan for living costs to continue here — something this review might seek to change, with better support for learning throughout life. extending our loans would be a step in the right direction. i think the right thing is that we have a coherently funded education system that enables people to do that throughout their life. universities and colleges want clear decisions after this review. but with politics in turmoil, there's no guarantee. branwen jeffreys, bbc news.
6:23 pm
fire safety experts have told bbc radio 5live that the new round of testing of building materials following the fire at grenfell tower is almost certain to see some majorfailures. and that could have a massive impact on hundreds of buildings — including tower blocks, schools, hospitals and care homes. adrian goldberg, from 5live investigates, has been giving more details to my colleague martine croxall. grenfell, a tragedy which took 72 lives, was clad with something called acm. this was cladding which, at the time, was legal, but which expert evidence at the grenfell enquiry suggested contributed to the spread of the fire around grenfell tower. the government has identified that there are still hundreds of buildings that are clad with acm around the country, but they have made £600 million available in total for local councils and private landlords to remove that acm cladding in the fullness of time. what other forms are causing
6:24 pm
concerns, because it could be that other things will crop up as part of these inspections? that's right. because the acm cladding at grenfell was considered to be acceptable at the time of the fire, the government decided to commission an investigation into otherforms of cladding and building materials to see if they now posed a safety threat and a private company commissioned by the government has identified as many as 1,700 buildings around the country which need further testing because they may represent a fire risk. one of the forms of cladding, called apl, is common, not to all of those buildings but to many of them. i've spoken to one expert today who says that in the worst kind of circumstances, this kind of cladding could potentially be more dangerous than the cladding on grenfell tower. what's the government saying? the government has provided £600 million to remove the kind of cladding that was used at grenfell. they're waiting for the tests on the 1,700 buildings to come through later this summer. and they say they are working
6:25 pm
with private landlords and with local councils to remove all kinds of dangerous cladding. adrian goldberg talking to martine croxall. the sunday times says it has found evidence that the snapchat app has become what it calls a "haven" for sexual predators who target young people. the newspaper has uncovered thousands of reported cases involving the photo—messaging app since 2014. john mcmanus reports. snapchat has helped to revolutionise mobile communication. it is a simple idea — photos and videos sent between users are deleted once they have been viewed, very quickly. that tends to induce a carefree attitude, which means if you feel like sending your mate an embarrassing picture of them or you, well, the image will quickly disappear once it has been seen. that makes the app popular with teenagers. but the sunday times says there is a dark side to the craze for sending what are known as "snaps".
6:26 pm
it says data it obtained under freedom of information requests shows that officers are handling about three child sexual exploitation cases every day in which snapchat has played some kind of role, though it doesn't specify exactly what. users of the app can message each other, which means potential abusers can chat to and groom victims. and the automatic deletion of images makes it difficult to trace evidence of wrongdoing. the nspcc says it's also easy for abusers to screenshot an image and save it to other platforms. there are 14.5 million snapchat users in the uk, and those who want to join must be aged at least 13. the company says... a woman has been found alive more than two weeks after she went missing in a forest on the hawaiian island of maui. amanda eller was rescued
6:27 pm
by helicopter from a deep ravine. she'd been hiking in the area when she became lost and then injured. ramzan karmali reports. the last 17 days of my life have been the toughest of my life. hiker amanda eller knows how lucky she is to be alive. she spent over two weeks lost in a forest on the hawaiian island of maui. the yoga instructor thought she was heading back to her car but was instead wandering further and further into the wilderness. it did come down to life and death, and i had to choose, and i chose life. i wasn't going to take the easy way out, even though that meant more suffering and pain for myself. amanda was rescued from a deep ravine. she waved down a rescue helicopter funded by donations. one of her friends was on that rescue helicopter. out of the woodwork, she comes out — arms swinging. i was like, "there she is!"
6:28 pm
i know amanda very well so i was like, "that is amanda eller!" i thought, "how is she dressed? she is not wearing shoes, we have to land this thing!" chris was like, "don'tjump out of the helicopter!" in order to survive, she foraged on berries, but she was injured — a fractured leg and severe burns from the sun. doctors say she should make a full recovery. but amanda is most grateful for those who didn't give up on her. i have the most gratitude and respect and appreciation — i can't even put it into words — for the people that have helped me, that have prayed for me. her mother, julia, has called the rescue a miracle. now, scientists have a request. have you seen any spittlebugs? would you even know what they look like? the insects get their name from the frothy spittle they leave on plants in springtime. volunteers are being asked to report sightings of them, because it's thought they could spread a deadly tree disease called xylella. it's feared the disease could soon
6:29 pm
arrive in the uk and scientists want to be prepared, as helen briggs has been finding out. spittlebugs are easy to spot if you know what you're looking for. oh, here we go, here's one. hidden in bubbles of froth on the stems of plants. where my pencil is pointing — there we are. we might be able to persuade the little juvenile spittlebug to come out. and there it is. if xylella arrived in the uk, spittlebugs could spread the disease by feeding on the sap of infected plants. now, scientists want help in recording sightings of spittle and fully grown spittlebugs, which are champion jumpers, able to leap more than 100 times their own body length. so we need to learn as much as we possibly can about what kinds of plants they feed on, what habitats they occupy, and where they are in the country, so, ultimately, if the worst possible happens and the disease does arrive in britain, we'll be able to make some really good predictions about how it's likely to spread, and how quickly. xylella arrived in europe six years ago, devastating olive groves in italy and spreading to
6:30 pm
other countries in the eu. it's important to remember that xylella isn't yet in the uk, but if it did arrive, there's a huge amount of plants that could affect. and it's notjust in our gardens, with the rosemary, lavender, but the wider environment as well, things we particular care about — so tree species like oak trees, sycamore trees, ash trees, things that are really key in our landscape. we want to protect those, as well as within our gardens. scientists are calling for thousands of volunteers up and down the country to help map spittle and spittlebugs in gardens, meadows and woodlands. appropriate then to look at the weather. now it's time for a look at the weather with alina jenkins. hello. part of skull and have seen around 30 mm of rain in the last 2a hours, well over an inch —— parts of scotla nd hours, well over an inch —— parts of scotland have seen. turning drier for the northern highlands. that rain could arrive into the north of

6:35 pm
the red caps a tribute to three—time world champion niki lauda, who died on monday. for the sport, the loss of a legend. for many here in monaco, the loss of a friend. mercedes, hoping to pay the ultimate tribute, on the hunt for their sixth 1—2 finish this season. and it was a dream start for the five—time champion lewis hamilton, converting his pole position into a lead at the first corner of this iconic circuit. but for ferrari's charles leclerc, a nightmare. it wasn't supposed to go like this for the hometown hero. the chaos didn't end there. this incident cost max verstappen a five—second penalty. that didn't stop his pursuit of the race leader lewis hamilton, bearing down on the world champion in the final moments. not enough to prevent hamilton from claiming his third victory on the streets of monaco, six out of six for mercedes this season. that one's for niki, mate. that one is for niki. hamilton described it as the hardest race he's had, surely one niki himself would have been proud of. holly hamilton, bbc news. hamilton now holds a 17—point lead

over his team—mate valtteri bottas in the championship. sebastian vettel is up to third, ahead of max verstappen in fourth. st mirren have maintained their scottish premiership status after a penalty shoot out victory in their play—off against dundee united. in a highly eventful match, the two sides couldn't be seprated after extra time, but st mirren held their nerve in the shoot—out to maintain their top flight status. nick parrott watched the action. dundee have been practising penalties just dundee have been practising penaltiesjust in dundee have been practising penalties just in case of this scenario. it did not pay off. st mirren staying in the scottish premiership for another season. united condemned to a fourth in the championship. probably a fair outcome for two sides who could not be separated over to ten minutes. after a goalless first leg, it took 20 more minutes for breakthrough. thisjudged 20 more minutes for breakthrough. this judged handball. nikki 20 more minutes for breakthrough. thisjudged handball. nikki clark putting his side and front. the

make nerves and mistakes printable but this was so unpredictable it even coffee camera by surprise. the second review will not make it easierfor the keeper. it can be ha rd to easierfor the keeper. it can be hard to respond to a moment like that at all, let alone respond with a moment of real quality. that was where the quality ended. the commitment remained and it felt like extra time was on the horizon. but with just six seconds left on the clock, the ball fell to a man who had not scored all season. patrick ballard knows how to pick his moments. acute delirium, acute devastation chemic you the kind of drama that only the playoffs can bring. 21 years may have passed but the result has stayed the same and it is charlton promoted again. roger federer has made a winning return to the french open after four years away. he beat lorzeno sonego in straight sets, but there were surprise defeats for both angelique kerber and venus williams. our tennis correspondent russell fullerjoins me now.

was it like federer has never been away? yes, first match here since 2015 but he has had to warm up tournaments on the clay in madrid and rome. he reached the quarterfinals on both occasions and pulled out before his quarterfinal in rome because he had a bit ofa quarterfinal in rome because he had a bit of a toe and leg problem but very much precautionary. he eased back into rowlands castle land today with a straightforward whim, adulation from those 15,000 watching. desperate to see him back. roger federer rested from the place... a combination of inman —— injuries and because he needed a break to prolong his career. also helped him win wimbledon in 2017 but this year he felt there was no strong reason to stay away from the clay and he looks as sharp as ever. how big a shock to see fifth see angelique kerber go out? at the start of the fortnight, she was hoping to become only the 11th woman in history to have won all
6:40 pm
four of the grand slam titles in her career. third different grand slam with a wimbledon last year. the french open always her weakest surface and having rolled her ankle while running in the warm up ahead ofa while running in the warm up ahead of a match in room two weeks ago, her chances here always looked very slight. and sure enough, against a very promising russian, she was well beaten in straight sets. and she will now go to try and get herself into the right sort of shape to start the defence of her wimbledon title. venus williams also out? not so title. venus williams also out? not so surprising other because venus williams is one of the gritty champions the sport has ever seen but she is 39 next month and now 52nd in the will and because she is not seated here, she drew the ninth seed and limit this to leah in the first round and lost in straight sets. really for her but she started the season well and has had the problems and had she won the match

enclave. so svitolina is through. and she is now commenting on the bbc sports website throughout. thank you for joining sports website throughout. thank you forjoining us. here are some of the day's other stories: coventry city say they have a "groundshare venue and agreement in place" for next season in case they are forced out of the ricoh arena. coventry owners sisu and rugby union club wasps, who own the stadium, are in talks over city staying at the ground, which is the club's preferred option. italy's dario cataldo claimed his first giro d'italia stage win after beating mattia cattaneo in a sprint finish to stage 15. richard carapaz stretched his lead over primoz roglic in the overall standings after roglic lost a0 seconds changing a team—mate's bike before crashing on the final descent. britain's laura muir had to settle for bronze in the women's elite westminster mile. the race, which starts on the mall and finishes outside buckingham palace, was won by melissa courtney for the second year in a row.
6:42 pm
in the men's race, chris o'hare was pushed all the way by elliot giles as he claimed his third westminster mile crown. o'hare just failed to break the four minute barrier afterfinishing the race in four minutes flat. staying with athletics, britain's katarina johnson—thompson has laid down a markerfor this year's world athletics championships by setting a world lead and a new personal best in winning the heptathlon at the gotzis hypo—meeting. the competition is considered the biggest combined event outside of the major championships. johnson—thompson extended her overnight lead in the first event of day two, leaping the furthest in the long jump. she then performed strongly in the javelin and 800 metres to finish on 6813 points. in the best game of this season's magic weekend so far, leeds fought off a london broncos
6:43 pm
revival to secure a 211—22 win, which could turn their season around after a poor start to the campaign. leeds raced ahead early in the match with tries from liam sutcliffe and ash handley as the broncos really struggled with leeds' impressive early tempo. after richie myler scored leeds' fifth try, the broncos fought back and got within two points courtesy of a try from alex walker. leeds are now two points clear of london, who remain bottom of the table. earlier, there was was an important victory for hull kingston rovers. they narrowly beat salford to move away from the bottom of the table, level at 20 points—all. ryan shaw scored a late penalty to seal the win. the day's final game at anfield is currently ongoing. leaders st helens taking on castleford. the score is currently st helens 20, castleford six. there's live commentary of the match on radio 5live sports extra and via the bbc sport website.

england's bronte law is still in the running for her first career lpga title. she shares the lead at the pure silk championship in virginia with japan's nasa hataoka heading into today's final round. at one point, it looked like she'd be returning to the clubhouse a shot behind, but managed to birdie the 18th — her sixth in a round that also included two bogeys. 20 years on from that famous treble—winning season, manchester united have beaten bayern munich again today. the likes of david beckham, paul scholes and peter schmeichel were all on show while sir alex ferguson took charge of the team to commemorate theirfamous win in barcelona. united won 5—0, and you can guess who managed to get on the scoresheet — the man who scored the winner back in ‘99, and current united boss, ole gunnar solskjaer opening the scoring. beckham got his goal in front of the stretford end on 90 minutes, while dwight yorke, nicky butt and louis saha got the other goals.
6:45 pm
that's all from sportsday. we'll have more at 7:30pm. next up, it's click. welcome to london's piccadilly circus, one of the busiest junctions in the city, popular with tourists on the way to the world famous west end theatres. and that's why the biggest brands pay huge money to advertise on those
6:46 pm
enormous billboards. but why go big when you can go small? our mobile devices nowadays know more about us than we do. this almost unrestricted flow of information is a gold mine for advertisers and other groups who want to target us with their messages. not just about what to buy, but also about what to think, and maybe even how to vote. so, exactly one year ago, new eu legislation came into force. gdpr is designed to stop companies from endlessly collecting and storing our data without us ever knowing. if you live anywhere in europe, these notices appear to let you know that the website you're looking at is about to collect some data from your device. delve in, and you can choose how your information is shared and collected. well, that's how it should work, anyway.
6:47 pm
but what's bothered me over the past year is just how complicated some sites make it to switch off the data collection. the option to actually opt out is often obscure, the process of opting out is long and confusing, and even then you might not be able to opt out completely without going to lots of other websites and individually opting out there, too. i don't think many of us really understand the options, and even if we do, come on, how many times could you just not be bothered and just press accept all anyway? hm, i'm not sure gdpr is working as intended, are you? the good news is this legislation is notjust about restricting how our data is collected, it also gives us the power to ask companies what information they hold on us. so, that's exactly what carl miller set out to try to do. i'm on a battle to get my data back.
6:48 pm
hi there. can i make a subject access request under gdpr, please? a subject access request, did you say? yes, to exercise my right to be informed about all data which is held on me. if you live in the eu, you can use something called a subject access request to ask companies for a copy of your data. all sorts of businesses hold onto our personal information, from banks to supermarkets to media organisations. the whole process is supposed to be straightforwards. i've gone on their website, and it doesn't work! there's no e—mail. now i have an e—mail address. you're supposed to pick your own channel for making these requests. and these are only the businesses i directly work with. most people don't realise how companies you've never heard of have bucketloads of about you. every click you make, and maybe not make, may be recorded and shared. this is the business
6:49 pm
of personal data. theirjob is to scoop up every crumb of information they can get hold of, both from public and private sources, and analyse it to understand me. or at least try. one company i got my information from had drawn data from hundreds of different sources to create thousands of different guesses about what i'll be like as a consumer. these companies have created a strange digital copy of myself that i don't even recognise, making presumptions i don't necessarily agree with. all the while i'm thinking i'm getting things for free, so little nuggets of information leaving my life and getting collected by others, it doesn't really matter. but now i'm beginning to feel i'm the product and it is me that people are getting for free. frederike kaltheuner is a data and privacy campaigner, and i sat down with her to talk through my concerns. there are two separate types of harms. when it's accurate, it's very creepy, and you'll be, like, "why does this company know how much alcohol i consume?" but when it isn't, it can be equally concerning, maybe you're misclassified as something negative
6:50 pm
and you aren't, but you're not aware that the company... somewhere in some database, a company thinks you're a gamblerand there's nothing you can do about it. this is my new vacuum cleaner, the robot i've been dreaming of for many years. and like many other smart devices, to operate it, i first have to download its companion app. i just scanned over the terms and conditions because otherwise i'll be here forever. according to one study, it takes 76 days to read all the privacy policies that we come across online. and then the cleaner starts mapping my house, but now i'm suspicious and i go to check it's not hoovering up things i haven't bargained for. i'm off to imperial college. here, researchers have been looking at how internet of things devices,
6:51 pm
from child monitoring cameras to light bulbs to smart plugs, can collect and share our data. let's start off with my vacuum cleaner. so we brought the hoover into the lab and we have realised the hoover is a little bit more than a hoover. we analysed the wi—fi data, and we saw that the hoover is sharing the floor maps with some server in china. and it's notjust a vacuum cleaner, this is a monitoring camera meant to keep us secure, but in fact, it's sharing data with 5a partner organisations. collecting data is a common practise for lots of internet—enabled devices — after all, they need it to function properly — but there's very little transparency, so we have no way of knowing how much a device needs itself to work and how much is being given away. sometimes with these devices, we notice there's an inverse relationship with the amount of data they collect and their price. so, cheaper devices, they are financed, in a way, with your personal data. so they're collecting tonnes of data
6:52 pm
about you and send it to tens of servers around the world. it's really strange how actions you think are really trivial — switching on a light, switching on a smart plug, changing the volume on your tv or, of course, cleaning your floors — can actually be telling so much about you to companies you're not even aware of. stop tracking me! gdpr says it doesn't matter where the company is based or product is made, you still have the right to your information. but if you don't know who to ask, how can you ask? i spent over a month making requests from 80 companies, and around a dozen have replied. so, this is what it actually looks like to get your data back. i'm probably 100 e—mails deep now, and yesterday, by recorded delivery, this slightly crumpled white envelope turns up at my front doorstep. so, thank you so much, gdpr, i've got my data now. and it's in huge quantities. so, if i was to print out
6:53 pm
all the data that i've got, well, this is 1000 sheets of paper, i would need seven stacks of this if i was to print out all of it. for all its faults, i have no doubt, gdpr is the first step in the right direction, but i fear ultimately we, the users, will be the real instigators of change. until we demand it, we are accepting to carry on living in a system that we know precious little about but that certainly knows a lot about us. now, did you know that there are a whole host of effects artists working across instagram, of all places. we went to visit one in modena, in italy, home of balsamic vinegar and ferrari, amongst others, to find out why. my name is simone vezzani, i am a 3d artist based in italy, and i publish content for social media.
6:54 pm
if somebody thinks that what i do is real, for me this means that i did a good job. i choose instagram because it is full of people that they are just watching and get amazed at what they see. # i don't want to set the world on fire...# i start to record footage about my own life, my travel, my trips, my visits, museum visits, for example. and i start to mix them with digital content.
6:55 pm
platform for this kind of content, instagram, was perfect because people are not used to see and to watch this kind of media content in this platform. when i was younger, i was really obsessed about video games. suddenly i grew up and i realised that for living i have to work somehow. i find this kind of software and this 3d software in particular for me is another way to see these video games, because inside this kind of software, i can manipulate and create everything i want.
6:56 pm
i usually spend something like one, two, maybe three weeks working on one single video because i'm alone and i have to take care of every single aspect. i don't consider myself as an artist. i'm really happy when someone told me that i'm an artist, i'm a surrealist or something like that, but i'm simply a guy who likes to play with computer and experiment new techniques, new styles, new ways to see the world. the rather talented simone vezzani finishing off the short cut of click for this week. the full—length version is up on iplayer, you can watch that right now, and if you'd like to follow us throughout the week, we are all across social media — youtube, instagram, facebook and twitter too @bbcclick. thanks for watching,
6:57 pm
and we'll see you soon. hello. it has been something of a mixed picture today. some have seen some showers and laundry smells of rain and certainly a lot of ran across parts of scotland with some areas reporting around 30 mm. that is well over an inch. for others whom are very few if any showers and a good deal of sunshine. what a contrast here in cambridge or earlier on. scotland will hang onto the rain through this evening and this cold front suites south and east was across england and taking showers with it. this front lingers across scotland keeping some outbreaks of rain here. it will sink slowly south and east was interning drier across the northern islands.
6:58 pm
maybe the far north of england by don and some clear skies and cloud for western fridges but it should be cooler and fresher than the one just gone. temperatures between nine and 11 celsius. a ban event is not go very far tomorrow, just sits across central and southern scotland and into northern ireland and northern england. to the north, dry with one 01’ england. to the north, dry with one or two showers and further south, sunny. frequent across norman island, northwest and southwest england and wales in may push their way further into the midlands and may push their way further into the midlands and maybe east anglia in the southeast on this brisk wind. better chance you have of stately drought that we do need the rain here. pressure field tomorrow and temperatures in the mid to high teens typically. as we lead bank holiday monday behind and go into to they went to become a little lighter. still from the north or the northwest go out this cooler air just starting to dig its way south and that is the theme in the week ahead. feeling a bit cooler both by depth and by night. and on to to commit we still have some showers to
6:59 pm
deal with it it looks like they'll be focused mainly across central and eastern areas with the best chance in east anglia in the southeast seen some rain here on tuesday. for the west, probably drier with fewer showers and some spells of sunshine but again in temperatures round about 15, 16 celsius for many and just nine or ten still for the far north of scotland. as you go from tuesday into wednesday, this area of high pressurejet tuesday into wednesday, this area of high pressure jet starts to build from the southwest so things across england and wales should become mainly dry. only one or two showers but fronts closer to northern ireland and the western isles of scotla nd ireland and the western isles of scotland could generate some showers for a time on wednesday. difference your wife, for a time on wednesday. difference yourwife, again, i for a time on wednesday. difference your wife, again, i think we are in the mid to high teens for most, a sign things will turn a bit warmer for the set as we head to the end of the week. if you want to some of the week ahead, it is going to be feeling cooler for most of us and at some rain around but all of us are going to see it, not all of us. bye— bye.
