2:06 pm
deal would mean. very different verdict about what no dealwould mean. so why very different verdict about what no with an orderly, managed brexit, deal would mean. so why do you want to do it? preparations are very and that is what we should be aiming for, but the only way to make sure extensive, because i think we can get to a situation where we are able that we convince our partners to leave smoothly, with an orderly, we are determined to get that managed brexit, and that is what we outcome is to prepare for no deal. should be aiming for, but the only way to make sure that we convince and... i think people understand that. oui’ way to make sure that we convince our partners we are determined to at the end of october, get that outcome is to prepare for that is not realistic. on the contrary, i think no deal. and... i think people it is perfectly realistic understand that. at the end of and there is a clear way that the now effectively defunct october, that is not realistic. on withdrawal agreement can be disaggregated, the contrary, i think it is the good bits of it perfectly realistic and there is a can be taken out. clear way that the now effectively one thing that would be right to do, defunct withdrawal agreement can be and which i suggested straight disaggregated, the good bits of it after the referendum result three can be taken out. one thing that years ago, and what we should do, is take the provisions on citizenship, take the offer would be right to do, and which i suggested straight after the that we make to the 3.2 million eu referendum result three years ago, and what we should do, is take the provisions on citizenship, take the citizens european eu citizens

2:10 pm
been another secret ballot empty chair, empty podium, televised debate, never looks good. his and the field will have been narrowed further by at least one candidate, if not more, dropping out by then. campaign and mrjohnson himself have clearly ta ken and being eliminated by then. campaign and mrjohnson himself have clearly taken the view they are better off biting the bullet and it will be a narrow contest, a narrower debate, and one that mrjohnson clearly diving in. interestingly, he has feels now is the time to only confirmed he will take part in engage with. the bbc debate, next tuesday, by there is a channel four debate that point there will have been on sunday that we don't know about and of course another secret ballot and the field there is the regular will have been narrowed further by round of interviews, at least one candidate, if not more, andrew marr on sunday morning, do we know if he's going to be taking part in things like that? dropping out by then, and being no, it is unclear, as you say. eliminated by then. it will be a they have not specified. narrower contest, a narrower debate, borisjohnson has not and one which mrjohnson clearly specified nor has his feels now is the time to engage with. channel 4 campaign whether he will take part feels now is the time to engage with. channel a debate on sunday that we don't know about and the in that channel for debate and as for any further broadcast interviews regular round of interviews, andrew marr, sunday morning, do we know if between the one he gave today and he will be taking part in things like that? unclear, they have not the one at the world at one specified, borisjohnson has not on radio four and that televised debate next tuesday, specified, borisjohnson has not specified, nor have his campaign, it doesn't seem like whether they will take part in that going to suddenly open the floodgates and appear in front of channel for debate and as for any the cameras and microphones at any further broadcast interviews, given opportunity because i think between the one he gave today, world the campaign, boris johnson's campaign will stick carefully to the
2:11 pm

for the site richard? is mark bottrel, it has not been decided i think. he is a "cladiator campaigner", that is something which is part of an organisation which represents 12 still to be debated. manchester tower blocks with fire safety issues, obviously for the people who been one of which is mark's home. living there, whether it is two years on, what has been to be rebuilt orjust to be pulled down completely. it is obviously a very, achieved? not much, the government has made some funds available but as very important issue but has not been resolved so far. faras we are has made some funds available but as far as we are concerned, things have not moved far at all, two years on, and there are thousands and thousands of people still living in flood warnings are the same dangerous buildings. still in place in parts of the midlands and north west looking back on last week, where we of england, as heavy rain continues to cause problems. about 400 passengers were stranded saw the barking building go up in on a train near corby for eight hours after a landslide, flames and how quickly it went up, caused by flooding, how scary is that? for me, that same blocked the line. and a military helicoper was called into help shore up a riverbank in lincolnshire, after heavy rain. builder, that built that block, is phil mackie has the details. the raf has spent the night trying the same builder that built my blog to repair a breach in flood defences and we have timber cladding on my on the river steeping, which has caused severe flooding building, so, can you imagine, it is in wainfleet to more 70 homes, pretty nerve—racking, going to bed at night. would you sleep in my bed, and that number could rise. i don't think many people would stop —— more than.
2:21 pm
what you are living in fear? police say it's one of the most challenging emergencies that the county's ever faced. absolutely, i was away when i saw it's been three days of pain for those communities in wainfleet. to discover that your house has been flooded is, the newspaper report about barking of course, really upsetting. butjust to see they've been fantastic. the newspaper report about barking but just to see the flames and how some of the heroic efforts by those quickly it went up, there is fire rescue officers. thousands of people going to bed at a real challenging operation night and if something happens, what here in lincolnshire. chances would you have to get out. rail passengers had to be rescued near corby last night, i'm on the fourth floor, i don't after first one and then a second train became trapped have a balcony, there is not that by flooding and a landslide. many big windows. i would be stuck, it's been a week when it's seemed like it would never stop raining, i would be stuck. three days after which would be less of a problem grenfell, the prime minister, if it weren't the middle ofjune. theresa may, stood and said the it is unusual, and we've got a lot government would do all it could to of people by rivers, prevent something happening again, and to protect people living in who perhaps wouldn't normally be — on holiday, camping, tower blocks. has the government that kind of stuff. what we're urging is people, done enough? absolutely not, two if you are near rivers, they are very high and they're very years on, you know, the government, swollen, they're reacting very quick to rain, you know, they did do something, increased vigilance, be very careful about your surroundings. the rain is easing off they change the regulations, that and the forecast is a little bit was a good step but they had better, but the rivers regulations in place to begin with are still filling up and the peak here in worcester isn't expected which allowed builders to build until late tomorrow afternoon. buildings which are unfit for living
2:22 pm
which means the disruption's going in. they have got to start putting to continue for a few more days, on pressure, the builders have to get together, with the government, and those with weekend plans willjust have to make the best and actually start progressing this. of it, which will suit some more than others. phil mackie, bbc news, worcester. the government should put pressure on the developers to say, stop what you're doing. there is all these a high courtjudge has ordered extra powers for an inquiry people living in unsafe housing... when is the next fire going to into allegations of mistreatment by staff at an immigration happen, when will the next people removal centre run by gas. die? get them to get on and make undercover footage on the bbc‘s panorama programme showed detainees at brook house, housing safe, so that when i go to bed at night, and everyone else, and near gatwick airport, being verbally their families, so that they can be and physically abused. sure that they are living in a safe building. what would it cost you, as a flat owner, to sort this issue out our correspondent danny shaw is at the high court. yourself? we are waiting for an what sort of extra powers have they engineers report, to come out, next called for? the judge has been very week, and it will give us a very clear that this enquiry into the good idea, the thing is, the allegations of abuse at brook house figures, looking at other blocks, near gatwick airport must have they have been quoted between 20 and powers to compel witnesses to attend £80,000. you know, most of the flats
2:23 pm
in my blog are not worth much more the hearing. some of the hearings than that. most people would be must be held in public and also the giving their keys back into the mortgage companies because they would not be able to forward it, they would be homeless. it is such a lot of money, for a lot of people that will not be able to pay it. lot of money, for a lot of people that will not be able to pay itm i was talking to you, two years ago, just after this dreadful tragedy at two former detainees, who alleged grenfell, and said to you, in two they were abused and have brought this legal case, they must be yea rs' grenfell, and said to you, in two years' time, we will still be properly funded and represented. she discussing this, what would you have said these were repeated incidents of abuse that were openly conducted said to me then? i think i would in full view of other staff and detainees. she said there was a real risk, amounting to an overwhelming have been gobsmacked, because i probability that former gas staff cannot believe that is actually will not attend the hearing. she happening. i would went on to say that immigration cannot believe that is actually happening. iwould have cannot believe that is actually happening. i would have said, cannot believe that is actually happening. iwould have said, no, because surely our government, we live in the 215t—century here, you detainees were uniquely vulnerable know, we expect to go home to houses that we have had built by developers and the abuse detainees must have that we have had built by developers that have been regulated to be safe, the opportunity to see and confront and yet we are not. i think it is their abusers on equal terms. a very strong ruling from the judge about this enquiry which has been set up disgusting. they have to stop by the home office and will be led by the home office and will be led talking about brexit so much and start thinking about peoples lives by the home office and will be led by the provisions and probation
2:24 pm

and i think that i have been winning law is going to be subject to checks that argument and more and more and investigation. you can't say to other candidates are starting to say these things, smugglers, show us what you are and that we need to be open and attracting voters smuggling. if you're talking about from the centre ground, voters who might vote for other parties, those who might think about that voting the northern ireland border, there for the labour party already is smuggling across that and the lib dems. now, other candidates border. and they are intercepted in are making those arguments. the normal way. that is the ifeel like i have been winning important thing. there are ways of arguments, but it is also clear that doing this that do not require a where i had put myself forward ha rd doing this that do not require a as a candidate focused hard border. do you really think you on the future, the party's understandably focused very much on the here and now and how can persuade the european union of we get through brexit that? they would say it allows a in the next few months. so i have decided to withdraw flood of goods, particularly when you have been quite clear you would like this change because you want from the contest, and i will be different standards in britain. looking to how i can make those like this change because you want different standards in britainlj do. so there are things you want values sing and make sure the party encapsulates the values looser standards for would get into that are so important. the european union. they might, but iran says it "categorically rejects" us claims that it was then people would be breaking the behind attacks on two oil tankers law and there are ways of intercepting them that do not in the gulf of oman. require hard borders. that is well

it will be after the next round of voting when the contest for number 10 will have shifted up a gear. there's another debate on channel a on sunday. it's less clear if mrjohnson will be taking part in that. one person who won't be is health secretary matt hancock who this morning pulled out of the race. here's our political correspondent chris mason. borisjohnson hopes boris johnson hopes he borisjohnson hopes he will soon be moving house. he is keen to minimise moments where he could slip up. his tea m moments where he could slip up. his team also no avoiding proper public scrutiny entirely would be very risky, giving critics a stronger pace to question his legitimacy if he does win. there is no commitment to the channel for debate on sunday but yes to the one on the bbc on
3:03 pm
tuesday. in the past, when you have had loads of candidates, it can be slightly cacophonous and i think the public has had quite a lot of blue on blue action frankly over the last three years. we do not necessarily need a lot more of that. all the other candidates spend the morning saying borisjohnson must take part in television debates, including channel a's this weekend. public hustings is not the same as the scrutiny of the media, the scrutiny of television debates, this is about the prime minister of the united kingdom. what would churchill say if someone who wanted to be prime minister of the united kingdom was hiding away from the media, not taking part in these big occasions? the realjudgment the members of parliament have to make is who do they want going up against boris? and there is only one way they can judge that, by seeing him on stage against the other candidates. enter next, former brexit secretary dominic raab, nothing says a politician doing a photo opportunity more than a fluorescent jacket. i'm looking forward to building momentum and testing the ideas and the policies of all the candidates in these debates on sunday,
3:04 pm
a great opportunity for me. and as for matt hancock, it's lights, camera... and, the end of the action for him, his attempt to be prime minister is over. i have put myself forward as a candidate focused on the future, the party's understandably focused on the here and now, how we get through brexit in the next few months. and so i have decided to withdraw from the contest. and take a look at this, mr hancock socking it to his former rival, dominic raab. this is what a feminist looks like... dominic raab has said that he does not see himself as a feminist. this contest is hotting up. here is the prize they are facing, moving in injust a month. boris johnson has given an extensive interview to my colleague mark mardell on radio a's the world at one. let's hear what he had to say about the possibility
3:05 pm
of a no deal brexit. ido i do not aim for no deal. i do not wa nt i do not aim for no deal. i do not want no deal as an outcome of the talks, of course not. i do not want us to leave with a wto solution as my number one priority. how bad would it be for britain?” my number one priority. how bad would it be for britain? i don't think some of the promises of doom and disaster are true. plenty of people would give you a very different verdict about what no deal would mean and our preparations are very extensive because i think that we can get to a situation in which we can get to a situation in which we are able to leave smoothly, with an orderly, managed brexit, and that is what we should be aiming for but the only way to make sure that we
3:06 pm
convince our partners that we are determined to get that outcome is to prepare for no deal. i think people do understand that. by the end of october. it's not realistic.” do understand that. by the end of october. it's not realistic. i think it is perfectly realistic and there isa it is perfectly realistic and there is a clear wavy now effectively defunct withdrawal agreement can be disaggregated, the good bits of it can be taken out. one thing that would be immediately right to do and which i suggested straight after the referendum result three years ago, i think what we should do is take the on citizenship, take the offer that we make to the 3.2 million european eu citizens in our country and do it ina supererogatory way, do it of our own accord, there is the question of the eu pension rights, ongoing court case is, just do it in a supererogatory. it is the irish backstop, that is the problem. the fundamental flaw in the current
3:07 pm
withdrawal agreement, which everyone understands, is the irish backstop arrangements. do not forget, that prison, that hobson's choice, which presents any uk government with, of either being unable to set our own economic and political destiny or having to give up the government of northern ireland. everybody understands the flaws in the backstop. mps on all sides of the house agreed that, —— condemned it. the solution is obvious. it is something that united mps on all sides of the house when they voted for the brady amendment, now, our friends in parliament, they will say it is impossible, and i perfectly understand that, but i think that actually, there is a solution to be arrived at, in that area, and we should work very hard for it.
3:08 pm
do you understand... in the meantime, in the meantime, it is absolutely crucial to prepare for no deal and i don't share the deep pessimism of some people about the consequences of no deal, that is not to say i don't think there will be some difficulties that need to be addressed, and we must make sure that we can address them but unless we get ready and unless we show fortitude and determination, i don't think that we will carry conviction in brussels about the deal we want to do. let's speak to our political correspondentjonathan blake at westminster. so he is definitely doing the bbc debate but still questions about whether he will do channel a. there are questions about whether he would do that debate which is due to take
3:09 pm
place on sunday. his decision to ta ke place on sunday. his decision to take part in the bbc debate on tuesdayis take part in the bbc debate on tuesday is clearly an indication that maybe the criticism that he is shying away from scrutiny in this contest was starting to hit home and starting to become something of a distraction. he was appearing very relaxed and willing to take on his opponents on tuesday when the field will be slightly narrower because there will be another secret ballot and at least one candidate will be eliminated almost certainly enact round and others may choose to drop out after matt hancock the health secretary took that decision himself this morning to make a dignified departure, rather than being eliminated without enough support to get through the next round on tuesday. he said he was pitching himself as a candidate for the future but the party clearly wanted someone to tackle the here and now. someone else who does not have the vote yet to get through the next round is sajid javid but he is staying in the race. no, i am really
3:10 pm
thrilled to be going through to the second round. we have a great message which is really resonating with colleagues around the country. we had a great launch and i look forward to the next days and weeks ahead. these are all my friends in the campaign. they are all good people and the candidates will be talking to each other in the coming days and we will see what happens. how are you going to beat boris? he has done really well and is almost certain to be in the final two. he will go up against him? what i offer isa will go up against him? what i offer is a good choice, a fresh choice for the party and for the country. this isa the party and for the country. this is a big moment. we are notjust choosing the leader of the conservative party, it is the next prime minister of our country. i think a choice between boris and me, it isa think a choice between boris and me, it is a good opportunity for people to think about what kind of country they want. that is the big question.
3:11 pm
if as seems very likely boris johnson ends up in the final two, he will he face in a run—off among the conservative party membership across the uk? savage javid conservative party membership across the uk? savagejavid saying he will bea the uk? savagejavid saying he will be a good choice. rory stewart is the rank outsider. jeremy hunt, all saying they would be the right person to take on borisjohnson. before long they will fall away and coalesce around one candidate. how quickly that happens remains to be seen at this stage. do you have any questions for the prime minister, the new one, that is? because on tuesday 18thjune bbc one will be hosting a live election hustings between all the candidates left standing for conservative leader, and one of them will be the person who moves in to downing street. their debate will be shaped
3:12 pm
by your questions and we're asking you to submit them in advance. e—mail haveyoursay@bbc. co. uk with your question and include your name and contact number if you're interested in asking it live on the night from your local bbc studio. that is tuesday evening, the debate hosted by emily maitlis. chuka umunna, who left labour earlier this year to help form the change uk party, has joined the liberal democrats. a warning, these next pictures contain flash photography. speaking earlier, the former shadow business secretary said he was "absolutely delighted" to have joined the party. earlier he admitted he had ‘massively underestimated' the difficulty of setting a new party up. a couple have been found guilty of murdering a vulnerable young woman in inverclyde more than 18 years ago. one of them was also found guilty of fraudulently collecting her benefits, worth £182,000. a jury at the high court in glasgow convicted edward cairney and avriljones of killing 19—year—old margaret fleming between december 1999 and january 2000. margaret's body has never been found. lorna gordon reports.
3:13 pm
edward carney and abuljames, they're suppose it carries other vulnerable young women who became her killers. in an interview they denied that margaret fleming had been harmed. margaret is alive and well and she has come to no harm. u nless well and she has come to no harm. unless she has come to harm in the last couple of weeks. that margaret had come to harm. she moved in with a couple after her father died. had come to harm. she moved in with a couple after herfather died. on one occasion she was seen with duct tape around her wrists and another with cardboard tubes around her shoulders. she was last seen alive before christmas 1999 that it was 16 yea rs before before christmas 1999 that it was 16 years before anyone noticed she had gone. there was a large searchable
3:14 pm
her but police found no evidence that margaret was alive. the couple made fantastical claims to try and cover up their crimes. they said she had left to become a gang master or was a frustrated spike is that it was a frustrated spike is that it was left to one of her former teachers to talk about the real margaret. an isolated teenager who nobody was looking out for, who disappeared without anybody even realising she was gone. i taught margaret for two years, and i am here speaking about her as a person, and i the only person that we have been able to find who really remembers her. —— i am the only person. and i think that is one of the saddest things, is that this wee girl has just been forgotten. forgotten for almost 20 years. but no longer. margaret fleming's murderers finally brought to justice. they will be sentenced next month. lorna gordon, bbc news at the high court in glasgow. detective superintendent paul livingstone, the senior investigating officer on the case, gave this statement earlier: the horrific conditions in which she lived were utterly disgusting and uninhabitable.
3:15 pm
for cairney and jones to continue the charade that she was still alive for all these years was absolutely abhorrent. with one of the reasons being for financial gain. we will never knowjust how margaret was killed, what we do know is that she lived her last days in what can only be described as a living hell. she must have felt that she was alone in the world with no one coming to help her which isjust absolutely heartbreaking to think of. all of the detectives who worked on this complex inquiry, were resolute in their aim to secure justice for margaret. they wanted to be the advocate that margaret never had. margaret was just a young woman when she was murdered, who knows what she might have gone on to achieve in her life had it not been ended so prematurely at the evil and greedy hands of cairney and jones? thank you. you're watching afternoon live, these are our headlines.

the front runner in the tory leadership race, boris johnson, says he will take part in the bbc tv debate next week. the health secretary, matt hancock, drops out of the conservative leadership race. so far he hasn't said which of the remaining six candidates he will give his backing to. two years on from the grenfell tower fire, survivors and relatives of the 72 dead come together today to remember the tragedy. in sport, scotland are on the cusp of elimination from the women's world cup. they are beaten 2—1 by japan which leaves them at the bottom of group d. no rain for the world cup in the cricket. england are looking good in the run chase, 1a6-1. the are looking good in the run chase, 1a6—1. the end of the season by winning the europa league title but surrey looks set to walk away from chelsea and go tojuventus. more on

their stories in 15 minutes' time. —— those stories. a church service has been held to mark the second anniversary of the grenfell tower fire, in which 72 people died. later, survivors and the bereaved will lay a wreath at the foot of the tower, in west london, and hold a vigil to remember those who lost their lives. but two years on from the disaster, three—quarters of tall buildings in england with cladding categorised as unsafe still haven't had it removed, or modified. sarah campbell reports. lit up in memory of all those who died, and for a community still living with the scars of the fire. covered in a screen, but the remains of the tower still dominate this corner of london. two years on, the community has come together once again to remember. nabil choucair lost six members of his family that night. it's to make sure that they're never forgotten.
3:18 pm
it's also so that we all give our prayers to all of the 72 members, getting the community all together and ensuring that we will stick by each other, year after year, until we get the justice and what we're looking for. zainab choucair. mierna choucair. whole families gone, young and old. mary mendy. all 72 were named this morning in st helen's church, in a service described as "of remembrance and resilience". forever in our hearts. # i know a change is going to come # ooh, yes, it will...# at 12 noon, 72 seconds of silence.
3:19 pm
the public inquiry into what happened is ongoing and will be for some time. the frustrations of many were voiced here today. it is and should be a matter of national shame, that grenfell tower was allowed to get to the state, or a small fire in a faulty fridge on the fourth floor could cause so much devastation. that two years on, we seem still no clearer on where responsibility lies and where buildings across the country are still covered in cladding similar to that which seems to have caused the fire here. this was a service by and for a community whose members have tried so hard to help each other over the last two years. sarah campbell, bbc news.

the man accused of carrying out the attacks on mosques in christchurch in new zealand has pleaded not guilty to all 92 charges against him. brenton tarrant appeared by video link at the high court, to deny 51 charges of murder, a0 charges of attempted murder and one charge of terrorism. the wikilea ks founder, julian assange, has been ordered to face a full extradiction hearing next february. mr assange appeared via video link at westminster magistrates court, after the united states requested his extradition to face trial on computer hacking charges. his legal team said the charges were "an outrageous and full—frontal assault" on journalistic rights. iran says it "categorically rejects" us claims that it was
3:21 pm
there were listeria deaths, one at manchester royal infirmary. iran says it "categorically rejects" us claims that it was behind attacks on two oil tankers in the gulf of oman. the us secretary of state, mike pompeo, said the type of weapons used indicate iranian forces were involved. it's the second such attack on tankers using the strategically important waterway — which separates iran from the arabian peninsula — in the last month. crude oil prices have risen in response. jonathan beale reports. is this proof of iran trying to remove evidence from one of the two tankers targeted in the gulf? america says their video shows iran's revolution guard taking away an unexploded mine, which the us believes they planted on one of the ships. —— revolutionary guard. the us navy also released these photos, ta ken earlier, of the same ship. one arrow pointing to where they believe a mine exploded, and the other where they think
3:22 pm
the mine was still attached. america has no doubt iran was behind these attacks on a critical shipping route. britain says it will study the evidence, but it too is pointing the finger at iran. we have no reason not to believe the american assessment, and our instinct is to believe it, because they're our closest ally and we are very worried about the situation in iran. iran's still denying it. this morning in a tweet, their foreign minister accused the us ofjumping to make allegations without a shred of evidence. what is clear is that tensions are rising. with iran angered by america's re—imposition of sanctions over its nuclear programme, and the us beefing up its military presence in the region. neither side says they want a war, but the united states is stressing it's ready to defend its interests. jonathan beale, bbc news.

3:24 pm
from the high court. the judge has been very clear that this enquiry into the allegations of abuse at brook house near gatwick airport must have powers to compel witnesses to attend the hearing. some of the hearings must be held in public and also the two former detainees, who alleged they were abused and have brought this legal case, they must be properly funded and represented. she said these were repeated incidents of abuse that were openly conducted in full view of other staff and detainees. she said there was a real risk, amounting to an overwhelming probability that former gas staff will not attend the hearing. that is why she believed this enquiry needs the powers to compel witnesses to attend. she went on to say that immigration detainees were uniquely vulnerable
3:25 pm
and the abused detainees must have the opportunity to see and confront their abusers on equal terms. a very strong ruling from the judge about this enquiry which has been set up by the home office and will be led by the provisions and probation ombudsman. —— prisons and probation. the home office has said it will consider the ruling. there is still a possibility they may appeal against it. some people who are campaigning for this inquiry to be held in public with full powers said the only type of inquiry that could be held which had those powers is a full public inquiry. thejudge has not gone that far but it may be that, in the months to come, the home office decides that is the only type of inquiry to satisfy the terms of the ruling or they could take it to another stage and try to satisfy the terms.
3:26 pm
the judge believes these are very serious allegations and must be properly investigated with detainees on an equal footing to those on the other side from the home office and gas which ransacked facility at gatwick airport. a ban on adverts featuring harmful or offensive gender stereotypes has come into force today. the uk's advertising watchdog says inaccurate preconceptions about gender should not be reinforced in advertising. lizo mzimba has more. oven pride — so easy a man can do it. it's phrases like this, stereotypes like this — girls doing ballet while boys do maths — and offensive preconceptions, women unable to handle diy tasks, that could well find themselves in trouble. women, don't expect any help on a thursday. print and online are covered, too, so ads like this, "think like a man if you want to be a boss" or this "are you beach body ready?" will be under the spotlight. the asa wants to prevent stereotypes that pressurise women and men

into acting in a particular way. thanks, beautiful. you're welcome. how can such a pretty wife make such bad coffee? i heard that! things have slowly changed since the early days of advertising. i hardly ever buy fairy liquid. but this is the first time that proper guidelines have come into force to tackle the harm potentially caused by gender stereotypes. pauline cafferkey, the scottish nurse who survived the deadly ebola virus, has given birth to twin sons. the a3—year—old worked as a volunteer in sierra leone, where an epidemic killed almost a,000 people, in 201a. the babies' father robert softley gale, a theatre director and disability campaigner, announced the news by posting an image of the newborns on instagram.

congratulations to them. now it's time for a look at the weather with chris fawkes. more rain in the weather forecast but modest improvements to see a to more of a showery theme over the next few days. we have seen plenty of showers over england, wales and scotland. northern ireland will see more general rain. may be an odd rumble of thunder. tonight we will see heavy rain worked into western areas of scotland. for the weekend quite a showery looking weather picture, often quite cloudy with some spells of sunshine. the temperature is rising a little bit, not as cool as the weather has been this past week. saturday starts off like this with heavy rain for northern ireland working into north—west scotland. there will be
3:29 pm
some heavy and thundery showers during the day. a bit more in a way of sunshine but it is still u nsettled of sunshine but it is still unsettled with the risk of some heavy downpours.

this is bbc news — our latest headlines. the leading contender for the conservative party leadership race, boris johnson, says he will take part in a televised debate on the bbc on tuesday. what i think the best solution would be would be to have a debate on what we all have to offer the country, our programme to take britain forward. the health secretary, matt hancock, drops out of the leadership race. so far he hasn't said which of the remaining six candidates he will give his backing to. two years after the grenfell tower fire, a service of remembrance is held for the 72 people who lost their lives. the two carers convicted of murdering a 19—year—old woman, whose death they covered up for 20 years.

margaret fleming's benefits had been stolen and her body has never been found. sport now on afternoon live with gavin ra mjaun. not the results scotland wanted in the women's world cup. absolutely not. facing a battle to stay in the world cup. they were beaten 2—1 by japan. stay in the world cup. they were beaten 2—1 byjapan. that stay in the world cup. they were beaten 2—1 by japan. that result means the are rooted at the bottom of group c. a dreadful start to the match. let's look at the goals. of group c. a dreadful start to the match. let‘s look at the goals. 2— of group c. a dreadful start to the match. let's look at the goals. 2— l down. the first japan match. let's look at the goals. 2— l down. the firstjapan came after 28 minutes. the shot flew over leigh alexander. the second goal came after converting a penalty. a big second half needed against a former world champions. they left the goal a bit too late. a late shout for a
3:32 pm
penalty for them to, but it was not to be. and they have to effectively rely on being one of the best third placed teams to leap two which the last 16. we will take this result all day long. we got no points, but another good second—half performance and again, so many positives. the big thing for us is that the players are not too deflated. we go our last game needing to wind it. in hindsight we knew that would be the case, we were hoping to get the first two out something out of the first two out something out of the first two out something out of the first two but it has not changed anything for us. jamaica face italy at five and that it is england against argentina. england will be hoping to maintain their 100% record. cricket and england will be thanking the heavens that it is not
3:33 pm
raining today. they are looking good for the wind. good work from their bowlers taking three wickets. let's cross to joe wilson bowlers taking three wickets. let's cross tojoe wilson who is in hampshire for us. looking good for england? it is fast becoming a stroll as england passed 160. only one man to go out for a5. anger's fa st one man to go out for a5. anger's fast bowlers are doing most of the damage. west indies out forjust 212. england is a bowling attack have so many options. archer said he enjoyed playing against some of his friends. i don't know if the west indies enjoyed it quite as much. in response, we had coming out to open the batting joe root because of two players who went off the field
3:34 pm
injured. when players miss time in the field, they have to wait before the field, they have to wait before the can come out of that. so it looks like england probably won't need either anyway but an update on their fitness will be very interesting. remember engen's next aim is tuesday night or tuesday morning rather, at manchester against afghanistan. in terms of this game, i'm not seeing the west indies had given up but, a short time ago, one player came on with his hat and sunglasses on. england, really just his hat and sunglasses on. england, reallyjust cruising in the sun. having ended the season by winning the europa league title maurizio sarri is set to leave chelsea afterjust one year. an agreement with juventus was reached late last night with a compensation fee in excess of £5million

3:36 pm
earn 20% less than men. our correspondent imogen foulkes is in bern. this is the scene in parliament square, in switzerland's capital of bern. thousands of women have been arriving here all day, and it is a scene that is being repeated in every town across the country. you might ask yourself why in switzerland, a wealthy country where salaries are high, do women feel the need to go on strike? the fact is equality has arrived pretty slowly here. women didn't even get the right to vote until 1971. 20 years after that, 1991, there were still no women in the swiss government and no paid maternity leave. that was when the first strike happened. half a million women took part. today, swiss women are saying, "ok, time for one last push. we still don't have real equal pay at work. we earn 20% less and our main counterparts." swiss women find it hard to juggle work and family. they find it hard to find childcare. so what all these women gathered here today are hoping, is that
3:37 pm
with this new strike, where there could be even more than half a million, they will be able to encourage politicians and employers to take those last few steps so that what women here view as true equality, where men and women work side by side, completely equally, can finally be achieved. shops offering tattoos and piercings pose an infection risk, and laws on who can work in them should be tightened, according to a leading public health charity. the royal society for public health says one in five adults in the uk now have a tattoo, and more should be done to protect them. here's our health correspondent, dominic hughes. for most people, getting a tattoo or piercing is a straightforward procedure. but there are health risks whenever the barrier that is formed by our skin is broken, and health experts say not enough is being done to prevent infection. the whole desire for body modification is something that has
3:38 pm
grown in the last couple of decades, as people become more interested in their body image. and that's great, but the legislation just hasn't caught up, and we would like to see a level playing field, basically. i think it would be useful for anyone in the uk to know that, wherever they're going, they can be assured that the person who is giving them a special procedure such as a tattoo is suitably qualified in infection control, and so that it really does minimise the risk of side effects. the number of shops offering tattoos and piercings has rocketed in recent years, up by more than 170% injust a decade. one in five of us now has a tattoo. but, in a survey of more than 800 people who were tattooed, pierced, or underwent acupuncture or electrolysis in the last couple of years, 18% experienced negative side effects. wales is the only part of the uk where a compulsory licensing scheme for tattoo parlours and others offering similar services is being introduced. today's report says that not enough is being done in the rest

people are willing to talk to strangers and make conversation. because it is not usual that a stranger will come up to you and talk to you about something random. after the conversation, jessica writes up her findings.” after the conversation, jessica writes up her findings. i have to estimate how happy they are to talk to me and i have to report how i happy i am to talk to them. are you a chatty person? ijust talk to anybody and everybody. and they always talk to me. people are generally quite friendly answer? i was on us generally quite friendly answer? i was on us in my day and that is what nurses do. communicate. as part of the bbc‘s crossing divides initiative, forging links across disparate groups, the scientists have developed an app. you can play along on your smart smartphone. download goose chase and then look for the game crossing divides bbc. up for the game crossing divides bbc. up popped an entire list of people you might like to strike up a conversation with. baggage, find someone carrying loads of bags, blue

mood, someone who seems to be sad. or bossy pants, someone who looks like a leader and talk to them for a few minutes. you can input the data about your conversation. that helps the university and it helps to make for good citizen science. the aim is to breakdown barriers, learn something new, starting with a blank can this. and exploring the art of conversation. for more information about crossing divides go to bbc.co.uk/crossingdivides the toy industry is massive — last year 370 million of them were sold in the uk alone. and while unwanted toys do get passed on to younger children, their component parts make them difficult to recycle, meaning many end up in landfill. so how do we get kids to think about the amount of plastic they are playing with, without spoiling their fun? earlier i spoke to emily stevenson, the co—founder of ‘beach guardian'. she spends a lot of her time collecting toys and other debris off beaches in the south of england.

it has always resonated with me. it is so empowering seeing other people get on—board with the movement, the work with bonnie wright and the schoolchildren she has in working with is rarely special, because to see this coming from children and to see this coming from children and to see them take their future into their own hands is really what we need. we have all seen the power that this can have with the school strikes for climate and we have some fantastic role models like greta thunberg and bonnie wright. you have been on youtube, lots of youtube posts telling people what you are up to. and what they can do. what is in those messages? every weeki do in tuesday episode and episode and try and triad, different message every week. different recycling taps,

different things defined on beaches. i have some of them with me. i don't know if you will see them because they are small. here is a piece of lego. i have lots. these are lego flowers. these come from a containership spillage that happened in 1997. the year i was born. it was a containership cold too. it was bound for new york —— it hit the ship —— a rogue wave hit the ship and one of the containers lost was the one full of lego. so we are now finding these lego lost at sea pieces washing up on our beaches but the ironic thing is that a lot of these pieces are themed to do with these pieces are themed to do with the ocean. i have a scuba tank. you can find flippers. we are trying to turn this into an educational thing but also a treasure hunt. you can go out and find the other cool things to look out for? i remember the
3:44 pm
cargo incident. i remember that year. this is the terrifying thing. what we do today hangs around for decades. 10096 and as i say, this is why it is so empowering to see these children taking their future into their own hands. they are the next generation like me and if we don't solve this now, and like you say, we have got to deal with it for many generations to come. now on afternoon live — let's go nationwide — and see what's happening around the country — in our daily visit to the bbc newsrooms around the uk. look north's rural affairs correspondent linsey smith is in hull where they're having a look at the aftermath of lincolnshire heavy rain.

let's go to reporting scotland's iain macinnes is in cromarty firth and is going to tell us this incident began on sunday evening when protesters got on board this right. the wreck is owned by transocean this right. the wreck is owned by tra nsocean but it this right. the wreck is owned by transocean but it is under contract to bp and is heading to a new oilfield to the east of aberdeen. bp hope to drill for new oil there. about 130 million barrels. that is why greenpeace have had to step in according to them. they have had different activists occupying the wreck and it seems that things had come to a close when the final protesters were ta ken off. come to a close when the final protesters were taken off. but this morning we suffer the protesters go on board and they were here for most of today. in the last couple of hours, it seems they have been apprehended and taken away by police. studio: it has been quite a police
3:46 pm
operation hasn't it? yesterday we saw a major police operation launched. at tpm, a helicopter was landed on board the right and a number of specialist officers made their way off that helicopter. we also saw a 2—pronged approach. we saw rope access teams try to access we re saw rope access teams try to access were these protesters were in a fairly precarious area and also we saw police boats being used from sea level to try and access those claims. i eat pm, last night, by each pm last night, we got the update they were further protesters on board much to the surprise of almost everyone involved. what is the latest? have you got another long night ahead of you? it doesn't seem so much, simon. the police operation today moved a lot quicker.
3:47 pm
at about two o'clock, we saw helicopter land and number of people but things moved a lot quicker today. people —— police were able to get a ccess today. people —— police were able to get access to where people were sitting on the ledger behind me. they got quite close to them and it only took a couple of hours by the looks of things for them to apprehend these protesters. many are now questioning will greenpeace try to put more activists on this trip and delay bp‘s protest miss remarkable pictures. thank you very much dreadful rain lindsey, particularly bad where you are? farmers have been praying for rain in lincolnshire but they didn't want this. two months of rain has fallen injust two this. two months of rain has fallen in just two days. one farmer

recorded 12a millimetres of rain between monday and wednesday. these unprecedented levels have caused dramatic effects for the people of winter wheat in lincolnshire. a state of emergency was declared. 100 homes evacuated, even more without power. we have seen homes waste deep in water. people kayaking to try to get to a dry place. the water levels are continuing to rise. quite a big operation under way? it is. quite dramatic last night. a military operation began and it saw a tunic helicopter drop large one tonne bags into the river. the raf say they will drop 100 of these huge bags to try and stop the flow of water. thousands of gallons of water that is flowing into rain fleet —— and
3:49 pm
onto nearby farmland. the scene is best viewed by pictures. you can see the sheer extent of the flooding. 150 acres of farmland is under water. you can only imagine the crops beneath are absolutely devastated. that operation is still going on now. we have been speaking to assista nt going on now. we have been speaking to assistant chief constable of lincolnshire police shone west who has been telling us about the operation. —— sean. he said another main player in this rescue operation is the villagers themselves. we have done quite a lot for the community. first and foremost, what a fantastic community they are. so strong, so community they are. so strong, so community spirited, some really heartfelt donations by all of that community. they have absolutely rallied around and a testament to
3:50 pm
their community spirit today. on top of all of that, we have 50 fire and rescue officers who are supporting that local rescue. it is probably too early to assess, but how much damage has been caused? we don't know the financial damage, but we have people waste deep in water in their homes, trains delayed, roads closed, it will be substantial. and it is likely to continue as the water levels are continuing to rise even though i huge effort is being made to slow. it has already been slowed, but to stop that beach. watch look north tonight to get the latest. thank you very much.
3:51 pm
jamie is here to bring us the business news in a moment. but first the headlines. the front runner in the tory leadership race, boris johnson, says he will take part in the bbc tv debate next week. the health secretary, matt hancock, drops out of the conservative leadership race. so far he hasn't said which of the remaining six candidates he will give his backing to. two years on from the grenfell tower fire survivors and relatives of the 72 dead come together today to remember the tragedy. here's your business headlines on afternoon live. as we have been hearing, a ban on adverts featuring "harmful gender stereotypes" or those which are likely to cause "serious or widespread offence" has come into force. the ban covers scenarios such as a man with his feet up while a woman cleans, or a woman failing to park a car.

if you have shares in the construction firm kier i'm afraid they've lost 11% of their value this morning. the fall comes after reports in the times that it's looking to sell its house building division for between £100m and £150m, a price analysts that follow the company call "disappointing." oil prices more stable after yesterday's sudden spike, following the attack on tankers in the gulf of oman — as traders start to worry about global over suppy. the oil price went up sharply yesterday with the attack on the tankers in the gulf of oman. there have been conflicting messages coming out. on the one hand you have instability in the middle east, which we see in the attacks on the oil tankers, and are feeling the instability might be targeted at the oil industry. on the other hand, you

have a global slowdown. a lot to do with trade wars in china, and people feel it is naturally cyclical. we have been on a boom in america, the economy in america has been great for ten years. historically there is no period in history that has has ten yea rs no period in history that has has ten years of consistent growth. people feel that might come to an end which pushes the oil prices in the other directions. we have got james here. do you get any sense of a direction with this oil price or are you resigned to the fact this will go up and down? the consensus expectation is that the medium—term outlook is still a price turned lower impact not only because of the supply challenges where many more people want to pump oil and header to, and but also because the global demand has dissipated as people go to sustainable sources of energy, ca rs to sustainable sources of energy, cars become more efficient and there isa cars become more efficient and there is a revolt from using plastics.
3:54 pm
cars become more efficient and there is a revolt from using plasticsm has been shown already that it can stop and start on demand, quicker than people thought. absolutely. the capital than people thought. absolutely. the ca pital cycle than people thought. absolutely. the capital cycle is much easier and therefore the capacity to drive the price up is now much more limited. what about, you talk about a general slowdown and demand, this is very much linked to the trade war as we have been calling it. that is going through a bit of an interesting movement isn't it? it certainly is. there is a broad expectation that it would suit both president trump and the president of china to strike a deal. it is in the dent interest of neither party nor the respective economies to have a damaging trade deal that is clearly something they need to get right. quite optimistic them? i am very optimistic partly because the demographic position, the evolving each of the people in china means they desperately need to export more and the us, on them

basis has the power. a quick question. a lack of women in the city. should he be looking at his own bank of england a bit more closely? or is there a problem right the way around the city?” closely? or is there a problem right the way around the city? i think he has done an excellent job the way around the city? i think he has done an excellentjob promoting women within the bank of england... not on the monetary policy committee no? in the bank overall, he has a relatively high number of senior ladies. and i think the big challenge is to keep the ladies in the business. many of them join but a lot of them leave and we need to make businesses more flexible, more accommodating and more friendly. thank you very much. there are the oil prices. i think the races will be more volatile and stick around $60 per barrel. different forces playing in there.
3:56 pm
how do against the dollar, reasonably stable, do w abbott negative. that's all the business news. that's it from your afternoon live team for today, next the bbc news at five with ben brown. time for a look at the weather... here's chris fawkes. hello again. there is more rain in this weather forecast, but it is not the persistent, really heavy rain that we have endured for much of the week. rain that has now totted up to as much as 168ml in shropshire, getting on for three months of rain. the rivers are still very full as well. where there was once a road by the banks of the river severn, well the river has taken over. the swans enjoying the extra space here. the subtle change that we are seeing in the weather is the area of low pressure that has been right over the top of the uk is drifting west.
3:57 pm
it is still close enough to influence our weather, keeping things unsettled. there will be further showers for many of us over the next few days. and there will be a few areas that get some quite heavy rain. one such area is ireland. at the moment, that heavy cloud heading into northern ireland through this afternoon with things turning pretty wet here. and lasting well into the evening too. there will be plenty of showers for scotland, england and wales through the afternoon and evening time as well. and overnight, more wet weather across western parts. the rain always heavier that much heaviest for northern ireland, increasingly turning wet in western scotland as well. there will be some drier weather at times. further east, temperatures between eight and 12 degrees. looking at the weather picture into the weekend, that nearby area of low pressure does stay unsettled. further showers are in the forecast and it will often be quite cloudy. there will be some sunny spells and it will be not quite as cool as it has been. those temperatures coming up a few degrees. so saturday, we start off with that wet weather, particularly for northern ireland and western scotland. a band of rain will tend to weaken to showers as it pushes eastwards entering wales. through the course of the afternoon,
3:58 pm
with perhaps more showers working into the far south—west later in the day. it is not entirely dry, there are no guarantees of dry weather for saturday. but at least there should be some bright weather around with some sunny spells and in that sunshine, it is june, it will feel reasonably warm. into sunday's forecast, we continue those south—westerly winds feeding those showers. showers again could come together to get some lengthy spells of rain. again, it is northern ireland that is most favoured for that though it could turn wet in parts of wales, western england and west of scotland as well. potentially reaching 19 degrees. it will feel that bit warmer. it stays a little on the unsettled side and to the early stages of next week with further showers, particularly across the north west becoming dry and warm in the south—east.

today at five: borisjohnson — the frontrunner in the conservative leadership race — says he will take part in the bbc tv debate next week. and in a bbc interview today, mrjohnson says the eu withdrawal agreement could be renegotiated — but insists we must leave by the end of october. it is absolutely crucial to prepare for no—deal, and i don't share the deep pessimism of some people about the consequences of no—deal. that's not to say that i don't think there will be some difficulties that need to be addressed. matt hancock pulls out of the leadership race it's not clear which of the six remaining candidates he will now back.
