tournament yesterday. it has all been smelts for the camera, there is a certain amount of attention because they are a bit worried in japan that the president may be shifting away from the pacific little bit, his interest in the region, and perhaps some of his words about north korea will not reassure that much. he said the missiles launched recently were just small weapons. an american climber has died on mount everest, the eleventh person to lose their life there in little more than two weeks. mountaineers in nepal have described the year's climbing season on the world's highest mountain, as a "death race." gail maclellan reports. everest, where mankind battles mother nature to reach the top of the world. it's a deadly endeavour. the mountain stands over 8800 metres tall, a lack of oxygen means humans slowly die on the peaks upper slopes. the number of deaths this year already higher
9:13 am
than the whole of 2018. it's been a carnage and i should say, it has become a death race there because there was a massive trafficjam and people are pushing themselves who are not even capable of doing it, they do it, they try the summit and instead of summiting, they kill themselves. mountaineers say overcrowding is partly to blame as record numbers of climbers try to conquer one of the world's toughest tests. conditions have been also worse than normal with high winds blasting the mountain, leaving a narrow window of time to reach the summit. it really comes down to, this year, a deadly confluence of three factors. you had a limited number of suitable weather days. the second is that you had a record number of permits issued by nepal, along with a requirement each person has to hire a guide. and the third is, due to the market forces, there are now companies offering everest at the lowest—priced ever
9:14 am
which is bringing in a bunch of people that really don't have the experience and also you have some guides that simply aren't qualified. despite the danger, despite having to climb past the bodies of dead mountaineers and despite the monumental effort required to reach the top, the pull of everest means people will continue to push for the summit and continue to die doing so. the highest mountain, the highest risk. gail maclellan, bbc news. hundreds more prisoners in england and wales will be allowed to leave jail for a day or overnight to work, undertake training or look after their children. it's part of a government strategy to rehabilitate offenders and boost theirjob prospects. the changes will apply mainly to female prisoners and those in open prisons. here's our home affairs correspondent, danny shaw. he is the convicted killer who murdered a man on day release from prison. in 2013, ian mcloughlin stabbed to death 66—year—old graham buck, from hertfordshire.
9:15 am
the case prompted the government to tighten rules on the temporary release of inmates. the number let out fell by almost a third in five years. but the restrictions are now being eased after research showed prisoners were less likely to reoffend if they had experience working outsidejail. the new release on temporary licence measures were introduced this month. they allow prisoners to do paid work in the community immediately after a risk assessment, and let them stay overnight away from prison earlier in their sentence. the changes apply mainly to those in women's prisons and open jails, which hold men assessed as posing less of a threat. we know that having a job and family ties are crucial in settling people out of prison and reducing reoffending holiday releases an
9:16 am
important part of that. we should not underestimate how difficult it is in the transition from prison back into the community. it is thought the new rules will lead to several hundred more prisoners being freed temporarily every year, but the prison authorities are aware the scheme needs close monitoring to ensure the public are kept safe. danny shaw, bbc news. the headlines on bbc news... tory leadership candidate jeremy hunt warns a no—deal brexit will be political suicide for his party. two people — including a 12—year—old girl — have died in a knife attack on a group of schoolchildren at a bus stop injapan. a us climber has died on everest — the 11th death on the mountain this season, amid reports of overcrowding. here are your sports headlines. aston villa are back in the premier league, it has been three years but their return —— they will return to their return —— they will return to the top flight after beating derby

9:18 am
of appointing the top jobs in the european union. fresh in the minds of the leaders of the 28 member states will be the weekend's elections, which left the european parliament's traditional parties of the centre—right and centre—left weakened and searching for answers. as voters across europe steadily reject the status quo, the question for politicians in brussels will be whether they too fancy radical change or a safe and secure leadership. speaking in berlin, the german chancellor, angela merkel, called for a decision to be made quickly. translation: we want to find a solution as soon as possible as the european parliament will meet at the beginning ofjuly and it would be good if we have a proposal from the european council so the positions can be filled quickly after that. jean—claude juncker and donald tusk have been at the forefront of the eu's efforts to deal with brexit.
9:19 am
a sharp irony perhaps that the british prime minister, theresa may, who is leaving office herself, will be part of the process to appoint their successors. the announcements are expected injune and while the physical geography of the european union remains the same, for now, the political landscape will change once more. gareth barlow, bbc news. new protection for individuals tricked into transferring money to fraudsters has now taken effect — but not all banks are signed up to the scheme. the industry has committed to provide initial funding for "no blame" situations until the end of 2019. these are situations where people were conned into authorising a payment to fraudsters. some 84,000 bank customers lost money last year after being caught out in this way. the 15p charge for the police non—emergency number — 101 — is to be scrapped from next year. the home office says 30 million people are calling the service each year. from april 2020, it

9:21 am
the body representing insurers says methods like this have helped fuel a rise in car crime and claims. between january and march last year, 111,000 car theft insurance claims were made, rising to 16,000 in the first three months of this year, the highest figure since 2012. pay—outs totalled £180 million, up 22% in 12 months. the theft of keyless cars is a major contributor to the unwelcome rise in car crime we have seen in the last five years. we would like manufacturers to do even more than they are already doing to make vehicles as resilient as possible to ever more clever and sophisticated car criminals. a police and government task force was set up injanuary to try to tackle vehicle crime. the task force includes the car manufacturers' organisation, which says its members are investing billions in security,
9:22 am
but technology has helped to bring down theft in the longer term. next week marks two years since the terror attack on london bridge, which claimed the lives of eight people. the youngest victim was 21—year—old sara zelenak, who was visiting the uk from australia. sara's mum julie and step—dad mark are here for the inquest, which started earlier this month. they've been speaking tojohn maguire about her legacy. atjust 21 years old, sara zelenak from australia had the world at her feet. the best way to describe sara is she was a younger, more amazing version of myself, a much nicer person too. we were exactly the same height and exactly the same weight. she smiled with her eyes, she was kind, she saw the good in everyone, yeah. sara was the youngest victim the night that terrorists struck at london bridge two years ago. her parents are here to raise money
9:23 am
and awareness for sancturies that will bear her name, and to attend the inquest. it's been tough. it has been really good and really bad. i was very anxious about it and could not sleep before i had to do my pen portrait. and listening to all the other victims‘ pen portraits as well, getting an understanding and how they are coping, also the victims that have survived the attack, watching them and how they are suffering. you just connect with these people. you feel like you know them and you feel like you are part of this awful family, this club that nobody wants to be in and you just automatically connect, and we‘ve connected with all the people that we‘ve met who have been been affected in this attack. it is a really strong bond, without words. yeah, it is. just meet these people, give them a hug and it's an immediate bond. and they kind ofjust release. . .they just let go. i know how they feel and ijust feel for them so much. next month they will, for the second year, cycle to paris, the city they were due to meet sara, had she not been caught up in the attacks. the ride is entitled, meet you in paris.
9:24 am
it‘s how their daughter signed off every conversations in the weeks before she died. they are raising money to build at least two sara sanctuaries, as they‘re calling them. one in australia and one here in the uk. definitely, the process of dealing with the loss of sara is a tricky one. it's very difficult to understand or find which direction to go, but what we are doing with sara sanctuary gives us a step positive, vision of forward, of trying to make something good out of such a terrible situation. so it definitely does help us individually but then we can see we can help others. sara sanctuary is going to be a place for people who have suffered shock, sudden death. we‘re going to offer a five—day holistic healing services, ranging from kinesiology, reiki, mindfulness, yoga massage, eating organic healthy food but we will also have doctors and therapists as well, and so they can try all different things and what works for me does not necessarily work for somebody else.
9:25 am
julie and mark say their lives were changed forever on june 3rd 2017, and their ambition now is to keep their daughter‘s name alive, to create something wonderful from something so terrible. john maguire, bbc news, london. let‘s go back to our top story and the race to become the new leader of the conservative party. and, therefore, prime minister. announcing his candidacy on twitter yesterday, home secretary sajid javid said that first and foremost we must live a brexit. he has not been seen since the announcement but this morning spoke to journalists outside his house. theresa may has decided to step down. she has an incredible sense of public duty but i understand why she has to not. i have put my name forward as the next
9:26 am
leader of conservative party and to be prime minister. i think what we needed this country is to rebuild trust, to promote much more unity and create a lot more opportunities, particularly for younger people. i believe i am in a very good position to do that. haven't the publicjust rejected the current leadership, including yourself? i think what they want to see is much more trust with their politicians and much stronger more confident relationships, and i am concerned about the future and how we do that and that is why i think we need the right leadership. someone that can promote unity, bring people together. sadly i think they‘re a too many divides in other country today, whether someone was leave or remain, north or south, young or old, andi remain, north or south, young or old, and i think we should not exploit any of these divisions and we need to bring people together, andi we need to bring people together, and i think i am in a unique position to dojust and i think i am in a unique position to do just that. will you
9:27 am
be pushing for no deal? brexit will clearly be one of the big issues that has to be addressed properly and every candidate needs a credible plan, i will have much more to say in the coming days. sajid javid, number nine in the list of ten, he has already been joined by another contestant in this contest to succeed theresa may, kit malthouse, who declared today. it might only be may, but gavin and stacey fans have already got something to look forward to at christmas, as the hit bbc comedy is coming back for a one—off special. the award—winning series — which was co—written by co—stars james corden and ruthjones — last aired on first january 2010, after three series and a previous christmas edition. this morning corden, who has gone on to become a late—night host on american tv, tweeted a picture of the cover of the script, telling fans "see you on christmas day."

hello, this is bbc news with shaun ley. the headlines... tory leadership candidate jeremy hunt warns that pushing for a no—deal brexit would be ‘political suicide‘ for his party — and could lead tojeremy corbyn in number 10 by christmas. meanwhile pressure‘s growing on the labour leader to change his party‘s policy on another brexit referendum. two people — including a 12 year old girl — have died in a knife attack on a group of schoolchildren at a bus stop injapan. another climber dies on everest — the 11th to perish on the mountain this season, after reports of overcrowding hundreds more prisoners will be let out on licence every year, to take part in work and training. time now for the morning briefing, where we bring you up to speed on the stories people
9:32 am
are watching, reading and sharing. the tory leadership candidate jeremy hunt has warned that pushing for a no—deal brexit would be "political suicide" for his party. the foreign secretary is one of 10 people seeking to replace theresa may. he‘s been speaking tojohn humphrys on the ‘today‘ programme. i‘m making this argument because i wa nt to i‘m making this argument because i want to solve the brexit crisis that we are in and i‘m worried that if we don‘t solve it we will face a political crisis that is far bigger actually than our relationship with the european union, it could lead to the european union, it could lead to the destruction of our party system and the end of my own party and let me be clear on no deal, i‘ve always believed we should keep no deal on the table, i‘ve always thought that‘s the best way of getting a good deal and i thought ultimately oui’ good deal and i thought ultimately our economy will find a way to flourish even with the shock of no deal. but, the biggest risk to
9:33 am
brexit now is not the issue around getting a majority, challenging though that is in the house of commons, getting a right deal, the biggest risk is a general election because as you‘ve been hearing on the news this morning the labour party is now changing its position toa party is now changing its position to a second referendum party, ultimately i don‘t think they would deliver brexit. and my argument is that if we guarantee a date by when we will leave the european union, we are running the risk that when parliament then tries to block a no deal exit as i think it would, you are then committed to a general election, the only way you can get over parliament blocking a no deal exit is to change parliament and that will be a general election, that will be a general election, that would be catastrophic because as we‘ve seen that would be catastrophic because as we‘ve seen from that would be catastrophic because as we‘ve seen from the local elections, the european elections, we must not go back to the electorate asking for their mandate until we‘ve delivered what we promised we would do last time which to deliver brexit stop it would be
9:34 am
absolutely catastrophic for us as a party. and i think that‘s why it‘s very important that we are honest with ourselves about the situation we face and we find a different way to get a deal. you say if we guarantee a date by the time we leave the european union. we have a date come october the 31st. we have a date but if you say you are going to leave on that date, deal or no deal, you have said that. we as the uk say that whatever happens on that date we will leave, deal or no deal, then what happens is you are inviting parliament to do what it did in march which is to try and stop that, and there is a very strong feeling in parliament against no deal and as i say, not one i‘ve shared, i always thought we should keep it on the table and your only way over that if you‘ve made that horrid commitment, is to call a general election and that would be a catastrophe and i think that we
9:35 am
should not draw false comfort from the fact that labour party did very badly in the european elections because in the end the party in government is the one that takes the lion‘s share of the responsibility for not delivering on the manifesto commitments and we would be very severely punished and i think we would risk having the most left—wing leader in our history in downing street. so you come as prime minister, would go back to brussels and you would say to them we really, really wa nt and you would say to them we really, really want a deal and they would say to you, but, prime minister, you already have a deal that was struck by your predecessor and that is the deal we are obliged to stick with. we intend to stick with. well, the only solution to the extremely difficult situation we are in and i don‘t want to pretend there is an easy way through this, is to change the withdrawal agreement. they have said we will not change. they have been so determined on every single aspect of this, how many times do
9:36 am
you need to hear them say it? and thatis you need to hear them say it? and that is why the argument i am making this morning is that we have to have agoat this morning is that we have to have a go at this because this is the only way through, how do i think we can do things differently? first of all, one of the reasons that they weren‘t flexible in changing the withdrawal agreement is that they weren‘t confident that the british government would be able to deliver a parliament for any deal that they agreed to and so and they were right. what i think we need to do is have a new negotiating team, in that tea m have a new negotiating team, in that team there needs to be notjust the government but the dup, drg, i think you should have someone from scotla nd you should have someone from scotland and wales so that the union side of these issues is properly thought through and then the labour party? i think the labour party front bench has shown that they aren‘t prepared to do this in good faith so i don‘t think that would work. there may hunt talking tojohn would work. there may hunt talking to john humphrys. —— jeremy
9:37 am
would work. there may hunt talking tojohn humphrys. ——jeremy hunt. so — what of labour‘s position on brexit and a second referendum? diane abbott, the shadow home secretary, has been speaking to nick robinson on the ‘today‘ programme. she reflected on the poor results for her party in the european elections. i think we‘re moving towards a clearer line, i have to have to take the opportunity to give a shout out to labour voters in hackney who made sure labour topped the poll in hackney but overall, they were indeed a very disappointing set of results. the people‘s vote has always been part of our policy package and as keir starmer put it, we move through the gears but now, you know, at minutes to midnight on these negotiations, the tories plunged into the leadership contest so we get no sense out of them for a few months. we think it‘s important to foreground the people‘s vote. jeremy corbyn wrote to labour mps yesterday and said he was willing and this was a new position, to support a public vote on any deal. is that clear, what is a public vote, does it mean a referendum or does it mean a general election and when he says on any deal what does that mean, there is a deal with brussels at the moment, it‘s just not one that parliament backed.
9:38 am
ideally we would want a general election, that‘s always been our position and it remains our position but as the clock ticks down, if we‘re not going to have a general election we would support a people‘s vote and let me just say this. there is no inherent contradiction between respecting the result of the referendum and having a people‘s vote. not least because it‘s still not sure how a people‘s vote would pan out, i have always argued that it‘s perfectly possible that leave would win again but we are supporting a people‘s vote strongly now because it‘s the right thing to do and it‘s the democratic thing to do. let‘s test whether this is clear, finish the following sentence if you would. labours position on a second brexit referendum is this is not a parlour game, nick, this is people‘s lives. it‘s got to be clear, hasn‘t it? let‘s not play this parlour game. across the country people are facing loss ofjobs. because of the uncertainty.
9:39 am
summarise it in a sentence. our position is that ideally we want a general election but if we can‘t get a general election we would support a people‘s vote. in 2013, convicted killer ian mcloughlin stabbed a man to death while on day release from prison. the case prompted the government to tighten rules on the temporary release of inmates — but now the restrictions are being changed so prisoners can spend a day doing paid work or looking after their children. helen berresford from the social justice charity, nacro, has been giving her reaction to bbc brea kfast. firstly, just to say we support efforts to increase the use of day release for people who are in prison because it can make a real difference to somebody‘s resettlement back into the community and ultimately reducing reoffending. what we hope is that this is the government sending a clear message that actually in future, day release becomes a much more embedded part of release planning across the prison estate. what we know from the evidence
9:40 am
is that day release, people who go out on day release into work placements are less likely to reoffend when they are released from prison so really we are looking at how we reduce the high and stubborn rates of reoffending in this country. but let‘s look at the kind of check list, i suppose that is gone through for someone to be allowed to be released on day release. you mentioned family ties, you mentioned there needs to be the prospect of a job, what does that list look like and who is most likely, what kind of people are we most likely to see released? well at the minute, the people who are more likely to go out on day release are people in open prisons or women‘s prisons who are already being assessed as being of low risk to the public. and actually what that looks like in terms of the day is that they will have a risk assessment in place, and it might include them going out into a workplace, they will be learning skills while they are in prison,
9:41 am
doing training while they are in prison but actually will then spend a day perhaps or a week in a workplace to put those skills into practice in a normal workplace. it might also include in the short term, ahead of release from prison going out and starting to spend time with family again. obviously, a long period away from family in prison can make those family relationships quite difficult and this is about trying to build those back up again so that the release from prison doesn‘t come as so much of a shock and that all of those things can be sustained to give people the best chance of resettling back into the community and reducing reoffending. a four—day effort to move a banksy artwork — painted across two external walls of a garage — has begun. banksy‘s seasons greetings mural in port talbot is worth more than a hundred thousand pounds, and contractors have spent weeks preparing to move it to a new home.
9:42 am
the graffiti on steelworker ian lewis‘ garage appeared overnight in december, and was sold to essex—based gallery ownerjohn brandler. as you can imagine, he says he‘s going to have his eyes tightly shut during that operation. a rare albino panda has been spotted in the wild in china. experts have issued what they say is the first photo of the bear in wolong nature reserve in setchwan province. panda experts have known that albinism existed in pandas, but a completely white animal had never before been caught on camera. what a lovely image! let‘s bring you up what a lovely image! let‘s bring you up to date with the stories and pictures and videos being read and watched most intently on the bbc news website. number one. at the
9:43 am
moment on the most read section, that terribly sad story, about a young man who sadly died during the big weekend festival up in middlesbrough. that was over the bank holiday weekend. a tribute from his sister that has been posted on social media. the second story, really the one that i think you will, i warn you, pretty grim, the stu d e nts will, i warn you, pretty grim, the students at warwick university, last year, who had a facebook chat group and asa year, who had a facebook chat group and as a result of some of the really quite nasty stuff that they posted which talked about potentially sex attacks on women students, some of them were actually kicked out of the university altogether, a big controversy over the sentence is being reduced in some cases, the length of expulsions being reduced but it‘s a very powerful read. and let‘s look at the
9:44 am
most watched this morning, a couple that i really think are worth picking out, number one and it‘s really worth it if you get a chance to look at this, great videos from malawi, the solution to a problem and we heard about it in this country, else you cannot afford sanitary products and there is a big campaign to get vat taken off at which the chancellor has said the government hopes to do. this invention is actually a solution that was designed in the 1930s and it‘s being used in malawi, it‘s a menstrual cup, a kind of flexible plastic cup that a woman can insert into her self to try and deal with the bleed, great video, great hearing from some of the girls in malawi and what a difference it makes to their lives, not least to ensure they can go to school rather than being embarrassed and stuck at home, perfectly natural thing in their lives. final, let‘s look at this, four, those pictures of queen victoria, take a look at them. take a look at those pictures, you will find, if!
9:45 am
a look at those pictures, you will find, if i can scroll to these now, of course i cannot find them, can i, don‘t worry about it, but i will tell you, it‘s worth looking at because it‘s got pictures of queen victoria and her sunglasses and she looks a bit steam punk in it! that‘s it for today‘s morning briefing. but some breaking news now, from east london, this is a story that was being reported a little earlier this morning. sadly, a fatality, a stabbing fatality, a man in his 30s was stabbed to death in a fight in the early hours of this morning, police were called to warwick road in forest gate, they found the man with knife wounds, sadly although he was taken to hospital by ambulance he died. officers now working to inform his family. a postmortem is due to take place, no details yet on that but obviously as we get more on it and the identification of the man we will bring it to you on bbc news. sport now and for a full round up, we go to the bbc sport centre.
9:46 am
good morning... it‘s been a three year wait... and a year since they were just one step away... but aston villa are back in the premier league. they beat derby county 2—1 in the championship playoff final at wembley where patrick gearey was watching. roll up, roll up, for wembley‘s big bank holiday giveaway. one lucky winner of derby county and aston villa gets a trip to the premier league, and with it at least £170 million over three years. if you stay up for one season, that becomes £300 million. it makes the £6.6 million going to next weekend‘s champions league winners look like peanuts. so who wants to be a multimillionaire? villa buzzed first, on the brink of the break, anwar el ghazi the scorer with his shoulder. it‘s where it ends up that counts. derby‘s boss, frank lampard, won almost everything as a player, but the touchline could be a helpless place. he could only watch his goalkeeper, kelle roos, do this. and it‘s going to go! own—goal — beyond anyone‘s plan, beyond anyone‘s control. derby had 20 minutes
9:47 am
to save their season. they gave it all they had. jack marriott‘s shot, touched in by martyn waghorn, took this to the wire. villa lost this match last season. it was written on the face of even their most famous fan. but the equaliser never came. for all the talk of money, the play—off final is about so much more than that. for a few moments, even a prince saw these men as kings. so aston villa, one of the best—known names in english football, are back in the big time. the gap between the football league and the premier league has perhaps never been bigger, but villa have leapt across the chasm. patrick geary, bbc news, at wembley. i know what it means to these aston villa fans, and after the heartbreak they‘ve had, arsenal in the fa cup final and last year against fulham, it‘s just rewards for them, and i‘m glad they‘re going home happy. well we saw the duke of cambridge celebrating villa‘s win. the club tweeted this mock up picture of prince william giving their manager a knighthood —
9:48 am
the said ‘he led us back to where we belong, in front of royalty. arise, sir dean smith!‘ and villa‘s victory is on all this morning‘s back pages the telegraph sum it up with "right royal victory" "duke of cambridge delirious" they say ..."villa back in the big time" is the headline in the the times, with a picture of the two life—long villa fans, manager dean smith and captain jack grealish. and the express focuses on harry kane‘s proclamation that he‘s fit for saturday‘s champions league final against liverpool... kane has also been included in the england squad for the nations league finals — he hasn‘t played for seven weeks now because of an ankle injury. but there‘s no place in the 23—man party for tottenham defender kieran trippier — manager gareth southgate said it was as hard a decision as he‘d had to make, especially after trippier had such a brilliant world cup. 00:48:55,886 --> 2147483052:01:12,657 trent alexander—arnold and kyle 2147483052:01:12,657 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 walker are preferred at right back.
