hello this is bbc news with ben brown. the headlines: another huge protest in hong kong as tens of thousands march — despite a government climb—down on its extradition bill to mainland china. protest leaders are demanding that the proposed law is permanently scrapped. boris johnson has been given the backing of senior brexiteer, esther mcvey, who was knocked out of the conservative leadership race. the jailed british iranian woman nazanin zaghari—radcliffe begins a new hunger strike as tehran protests about british claims that iran was behind attacks on two oil tankers. president trump has
9:33 am
launched another scathing attack on london's mayor, sadiq khan, following a series of violent deaths in the capital. hundreds of people in lincolnshire are still unable to go back to their homes because of flooding —descibed by the environment agency as "unprecedented". britain's tyson fury defeats tom schwarz in las vegas, in the second round. fury is now promising to "hunt down" the wbc champion, deontay wilder. before the papers — sport and for a full round up, from the bbc sport centre, here's hugh woozencroft. good morning, we'll start with boxing as tyson fury made quick work of the previously undefeated heavyweight tom schwarz in las vegas. fury entered the ring wearing the the american stars and stripes on his shorts and didn't take long to stamp his authority in the ring. he produced a ruthless display
9:34 am
and eventually stopped the german fighter in the second round, his opponent's corner throwing in the towel to end a one—sided contest. let's not get carried away. i got lucky tonight and i put on a good show. i am not going to look into it too much. i don't look back in time, i keep looking forward. i was here to put on a show tonight and i think i did that. with the full american outfit, living in america, james brown. it was a proper american experience and i loved every minute of it. meanwhile, josh warrington retained his ibf world featherweight title with a split—decision points win against british rival kid galahad in leeds. galahad frustrated the champion throughout the fight, grappling to kill any flow, but warrington did enough to edge it. he is hoping that would be his last fight in his home city before a potential unification fight in the united states. england's justin rose will go into the final round of the us open later today just one shot off the lead. topping
9:35 am
the leaderboard still is the american gary woodland, who will begin the day 11 under par at pebble beach. but rose, who's 2013 us open win remains his only major victory, is breathing down his neck — he moved to ten under after another impressive round in california. rory mcilroy is still among the chasing pack and is five shots off the lead. i'm not chasing, really. i am so close to gary that i will play my game tomorrow and i think it will be dictated by the pin placement and the weather tomorrow as to how aggressive you can be and what it will take to win. i make no predictions about how it is going to feel tomorrow. i have been pleased with how i played all week. i think i did the right things yesterday, but ijust need to get a bit more out of the round tomorrow that i did today and i am expecting the conditions to be similar, but i could see the course getting a little firmer and faster,
9:36 am
and being a touch trickier. now to cricket and later today it's the most eagerly anticipated match of the world cup so far as india and pakistan battle it out at old trafford. an estimated global audience of one billion will tune in for the clash, with tickets exchanging hands for hundreds of pounds. rain is forecast for later in the day in manchester... in the build—up both camps have playing down the significance of the fixture. any game that you play for your country can be emotional, adrenaline filled. so no one game is more important or more special for us than the other. as cricketers who have been selected to play for the country, we treat every game equally because you have to be committed to play for your country every game that you play. there is only special
9:37 am
in any game in these games carry the exact same amount of points. they carry two points. there is a massive hype that is created a lot of time by the media, really. we are composed that we can get out there and perform and we are so excited about the opportunity tomorrow. four time tour de france winner chris froome says he's focused on ‘getting back to his best‘ after his high speed crash on wednesday. the briton suffered a fracture to his neck, as well as a broken leg, hip, elbow and ribs. the collision occurred during a practice ride before stage four of the criterium du dauphine. current tour champion geraint thomas says he hopes froome returns soon. he knew he was about to crash, it wasn't just boom and you are on the floor before you know it, it is one of those we are trying to save it and that is the worst as well. it sounds like he was lucky to come away with the damage he has done, it could have been a hell of a lot worse, which i guess is a positive
9:38 am
in a bad sort of scenario. but he has the best care around him now so hopefully he can get back on the bike soon. britain's lizzie deignan is the women's tour champion for the second time. she won byjust 2 seconds, the narrowest margin of victory in the history of the event. i really thought that i would struggle. it is first race in a very long time. i guess my old lady strength came in at the end and it was up there, definitely. i have won some really big races in my career but this was extra special because i took a risk in terms of leading professional sport to have my daughter and it has been a while when kind of time since we had her and it has been very special, obviously, but it means that it is possible to do both in diameter so happy that i made that decision. london broncos have pulled off another shock in the super league. the bottom side followed up victory
9:39 am
over st helens with a win over catalans dragons. rhys williams was amongst the try scorers in perpignon, going over twice, as his side won 30 points to 12. broncos are still bottom but only on points difference now. elsewhere, hull kr beat warrington. that's all the sport for now. a reminder the build up to india against pakistan at the cricket world cup is just underway on bbc radio 5live sports extra. now on bbc news, it's the papers. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are broadcaster,
9:40 am
rosalind owen and robert fox. britain is polarised and pessimistic according to a new survey in sunday's observer — with just 6% saying that politicians understand them and 75 per cent saying that uk politics is not fit for purpose. the sunday times leads on the conservative leadership race. the paper says tory frontrunner borisjohnson's rivals are lining up to pitch for the top cabinet positions, with former contender esther mcvey announcing she's backing johnson for prime minister. the sunday telegraph reports that theresa may is attempting to give the education sector a £27 million cash boost in her last weeks in number 10 — in a bid, according to the paper, to tie borisjohnson's hands. the mail on sunday claims that the man brought in to lead oxfam after the haiti scandal was accused of covering up a sex scandal at another charity he previously led. the
9:41 am
independent leads with a picture of protestors in hong kong celebrating the news that authorities have suspended the bill to allow extraditions to china. right, so that is a flavour of the front pages. robert, you are a military expert. talk to us about the royal navy plans to deploy marines in the gulf and not a huge number, about 20 royal marines a p pa re ntly number, about 20 royal marines apparently but it follows the attacks on these tankers. these plans were prepared well before the attacks on the tankers and it sounds not much but they are sending 20 royal marines as supply vessel. they will be there looking at how you are going to protect ships going up and down the gulf, particularly through the strait. it is like so much of the strait. it is like so much of the story, then. most of it is
9:42 am
underwater and we are not seeing it. there is a lot that we are not being told and a lot that needs to be answered. six ships within a month. where was the stuff put on them and was it just where was the stuff put on them and was itjust stick where was the stuff put on them and was it just stick at limpet mines? no, it isn't as simple as that. we had a very big explosion on the japanese tanker which the mirror then splashed online that it was a torpedo. it very likely was something and one of the things we are not hearing about is iran because my expertise in underwater drones. so we are opening up a whole can of worms there. what i say to mr ripley and the others, and very factual story in the sunday times and telegraph, yes, this is by its contingency planning it is like sending the american aircraft carrier which was going there anyway but whoever the foreign secretary and the prime minister is this time ina month, and the prime minister is this time in a month, they are going to be sending a lot more there. we have
9:43 am
got a lot around. we have got for minehunters. and that is the sort of thing we are going to be asked to send and it will cost money. and the trouble is that all of this drama is playing out at a terrible time for the british reigning women who is locked up in iran, nazanin zaghari—ratcliffe. the marines planning to deploy. where does that leave the nazanin zaghari—ratcliffe, because she is starting another hunger strike and her chances of release are not going to be improved by all of this tension? no, absolutely. i did the first interview with her husband many yea rs interview with her husband many years ago now. i had hoped at that point obviously in the family are in enormous pain that this would be something that would be resolved fairly swiftly and are busy that has not been the case at all. of course, she is not the onlyjewel national who is in that position. she has been the most high—profile and with
9:44 am
this strange situation where her poor daughter is also growing up without a father because and her daughter is stuck in iran currently. it is deeply upsetting for the family and all of this plays out with a human element to it and this great suffering and leaves her in a bad position. actually, he has gone on hunger strike with her. it is a very desperate situation. in the chess game, it is enormously, gated and that's what worries people because a miss move really could start things, particularly as a national security adviser has been consistently so aggressive about attacking iran. not even tram has gone that far. come to british politics. lisa nandy times are talking about an opinion poll saying that boris johnson talking about an opinion poll saying that borisjohnson is surging ahead, that borisjohnson is surging ahead, that it that borisjohnson is surging ahead, thatitis that borisjohnson is surging ahead, that it is really a race for second place among his rivals and they are effectively pitching for cabinet
9:45 am
jobs. yes, so in the pitch for cabinetjobs, the jobs. yes, so in the pitch for cabinet jobs, the argument jobs. yes, so in the pitch for cabinetjobs, the argument is that sajid javid wants to be paris's chancellor, dominic raab is hoping he can be home secretary, so a race for second. michael gove has done a more interesting thing where the pitch he is currently making looks like she wants to solve written's housing crisis which obviously the conservatives i think it will be key to winning the next election. actually finally tackling this thing that we have talked about for years 110w. that we have talked about for years now. and so he is actually ugly pitching for a department that doesn't tend to be very high profile, the community department. doing something a bit similar to what he has achieved in the environment department which is taking it up the political agenda. you would wonder if borisjohnson would give michael gove any kind of a job after... the stabbing in the back. last time round. well, yes, but boris knows that this is a political game and has played many... this is not a man who has
9:46 am
never deployed dirty tricks himself, is it? the other thing obviously that we have got here is a pole and it is obviously showing that the brexit party is still deleting party, but not by much, and we have four parties who are quite clustered together. but then there is another bit here that says 59% of voters wouldn't buy a used car from bit here that says 59% of voters wouldn't buy a used carfrom boris johnson and what an extraordinary situation we are in that we think the man who is going to reverse the tory pa rty‘s current the man who is going to reverse the tory party's current position and doldrums is one that people don't even trust to buy a used car from. if you look at this opinion poll, brexit party ahead on 24. the conservative, labour and liberal democrats are all in roughly the same, about 20%. that is the problem because what boris is selling himself is he is the man who can beat nigel farage and peterjeremy corbyn and he has properly got to ta ke corbyn and he has properly got to take on jo swinson corbyn and he has properly got to take onjo swinson or ed davey and also the lib dems and there are two
9:47 am
very good quotes from the conservative camp in the morning's papers. one from restated since saying if you don't extend beyond what you see as your natural days now, you have absolutely had it. and dear old ken clarke as ever saying most of the candidates for the tory leadership are incomplete and cilantro. there surprised about sajid javid wanting to be chancellor. any chancellor has got a heck of a problem. ert has got to deliver a complaint suspending review and there isn't a big amount of money available. the observer has been talking about the mids that we are all in. apparently we are divided, angry, pessimistic. it doesn't say grumpy, but i suppose you could some that up. there is a bleak mood. terrific poll there.
9:48 am
actually, i sort of recognise this. people do feel very gloomy about the situation at the moment, largely to do with brexit but notjust to do with that. it is talking about how divided the country as across geography and obviously the primary question of our age, brexit. there is an interesting line in your much later on. they have a bigger expansion of it in the middle of the paper. the split between those who identify as harvest and has not stands at 52, 48. the famous divide. isn't that telling? and that isn't just along brexit lines because the young, younger people who feel that they haven't enjoyed the great bounty that the baby boomers who but houses did, they also consider themselves and the have—nots even though on some levels they appear to have been quite well educated, may bea have been quite well educated, may be a better educated generation but the class themselves as the have—nots because they haven't got for the parents had and that is one
9:49 am
of the reasons i think this at a pessimism amongst the younger. the son has another story about boris johnson and basically the brexiteers one, get as out by the 31st we will be off. busy, he has the support of the arg and the other brexiteers in tory party predominantly but if he doesn't deliver, how much trouble believe ian? if it is still and if he is party leader and pie minister. i have made a private prediction. i think boris will be facing election in months. i think technically the more people look at it, the october the 31st crash out is more and more difficult. there will be rhetoric that they are going to do it but there will be so many loose ends that it would be very difficult to tie up and this is what again can clarke said. the idea of a deadline
9:50 am
on the 31st of october with no deal is farcical. and i think this is where we do get into problems very, very quickly. he has got to set out a new vision of tory britain very quickly from taking over leadership. he has got to capture the party conference, then go to europe. it is clear from what one can discern from whatjean—claude juncker was saying is they are not budging at all on this. because the old commission can't do it and the new commission is informed. it is limbo land. meanwhile, theresa may is still prime minister. just. a caretaker or lame—duck, whatever you want to call her, whatever her critics might want to call her. she is according to the sunday telegraph going on a £27 billion spending booby—trap for boris. what is at all about? she wa nts to boris. what is at all about? she wants to inject £27 billion for the education budget at a time when as
9:51 am
robert has rightly said it is not going to be much fun being chancellor in the next government, under the next leader. so she is trying to bind her successor. it is also part of her seeking a legacy, maybe. well, exactly. what is the main legacy currently? that is what this article assertive saying, that she wants to shore herself up. it is not clear that she ever had a clear political agenda. do you think she can do this, though? is it possible? she doesn't have a lot of time. she has very little time and i feel that she has struggled to get support on anything so i am not sure that this will actually go ahead. we have also got this tweet from donald trump. complain about siddique khan. it is quite a feud, isn't it? itjust rambles on and on. it is very
9:52 am
personal. he sees an open wound and he pours salt on it. it is personal and it does seem to be very bitter. the thing about these tweets is wonder whose mind he thinks he is changing with this? what is he doing? he is looking for a second temple somehow does feel about trump? do think in some ways they both came from this war of words? sadiq khan certainly doesn't lose from this. i do think you have a point. but the story is ghastly. look at the spread of these attacks now. and the fact that there were 39 things in these peculiar areas like clapham andi things in these peculiar areas like clapham and i live in islington where you have affluence, terrific affluence, real disposable income of the upper—middle—class and also
9:53 am
desperately deprived areas and it seems to me on this hinterland is where so much is happening. does any mayor of london of any little persuasion have the power to...? to affect the murderers? no, and that is what is so disingenuous about the video from paris. he said he brought crandell. that has to do with him when he was mayor. absolute may not. obviously, there are initiatives the mayor can lead, looking at education in deprived areas and volunteer levels but what they can't do is actually... rightly, the mayor says that the police are overstretched. but it isn't determined by him, is it? there was a thing which came up in the observer, talking about a great deal of serious thought right across all political parties about community politics and community representation. they feel that they pull against local cabinet and really trusted and true
9:54 am
representation has gone far to far in the wrong direction. actually, if there is going to be a grand vision of whatever political party emerges, possibly after the two general elections which will happen next year, that they have got to do with that and this is very much related to it. ok, our last story is chris froome. amen. what an absolutely horrific accident. i don't know if either of you are an cyclists. i am. where you going for the tour de france? i cycled across the tour de france? i cycled across the middle of england. this is absolutely artful. this was 33 mph. blowing his nose. this is the type of thing that you do riding a b i cycle. of thing that you do riding a bicycle. you try to reach across. i have been caught doing those things myself. and you realise you are com pletely myself. and you realise you are completely mad to be doing that. you believe you are such a great rider
9:55 am
that you are superhuman. he tweeted his supporters did that he broke his neck and i think that looks really potentially career ending because he snaps something in the upper vertebra, apparently. brave man. and also in the pelvis, i think. the ribs, the elbow. not good. the palace particular. he has crashed a lot before. he has been a good advertisement for cycling and cycling is terrific. i am a complete nut about it even though france have been killed and so on. i am from a half dutch family. i suppose these elite cyclists to inspire other people. they do. but we do know. thank you so much for being with us. that is it for the papers.
9:56 am
don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website. it's all there for you — 7 days a week at bbc dot co uk forward slash papers — and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. further showers expected this afternoon across england, wales, scotla nd afternoon across england, wales, scotland and northern ireland getting heavy rain a little bit later on today into the evening. let's have a satellite image. this isa let's have a satellite image. this is a very familiar picture. low pressure has been spinning around across this part of the atlantic and the british isles for quite some time now. it has been blowing in the shower clouds and showers themselves
9:57 am
you can see on the radar image and quite a breeze blowing off the atlantic, particularly around the western and south—western coasts, so i gusty breeze around the promenade blowing inland at times as well. the showers can be thundering when hailed today. notice this area approaching northern ireland. this means it will be a wet end to the afternoon for belfast and a start to the evening for glasgow and edinburgh as well as this area of weather pleasures across north—western parts of the uk. to the south, things will dry out through this evening and overnight and not to call this coming night. temperatures across a large swathe of england and wales to double figures, up to maybe 30 having 14. here is the forecast for monday. the low pressure is still here. it is sending a breeze and showers are way. scotland and northern ireland closer to the low i think on monday. more frequent showers here. elsewhere, fewer showers and feeling
9:58 am
warmer. in fact from tuesday, the wind direction will change somewhat across southern parts of the uk. the winds will be coming in slightly more of france where it is a little bit warmer. some temperatures could get up to 22 celsius, maybe 20 in yorkshire at 18 in newcastle. notice a hint of some showers there on tuesday as well. in fact, tuesday night into wednesday we could have some downpours, some thundery downpours across the eastern half of england as we go into wednesday. more of an easterly track at this stage. this could change a little bit. just look how very warm it is across europe. this is where we have got the heatwave. but it will remain pretty changeable. after that brief rise in temperatures, it looks like it will cool off again towards the end of the day. goodbye.
