2:02 pm
of issues including his knife crime fears for his children. to dilian yifang on around £12 million a year — that‘s £250,000 a week, i don't know much about brexit and thatpot every time you wake up in the morning some 16—year—old kid has or about £1,500 an hour. been knifed to death i have kids that age, you know what i mean? that has left me completely speechless! let‘s talk about cricket. england and australia meet in the cricket world cup tomorrow — there might not be such a warm welcome for two of australia‘s players? good afternoon. the tory leadership race has they could get the odd chance at turned more personal, them? the order chart! withjeremy hunt urging rival borisjohnson not to be "a coward" remember david warner about facing public scrutiny. and steve smith were two of the protangonists in what became he said that mrjohnson should "man known as sandpapergate — up" and debate with him on tv — when they and a team—mate cheated before most conservative members in a game in south africa vote. using sandpaper it comes as sky news announced to rough up the ball. they‘ve been a bit of pantomime it was cancelling a planned debate villans so far at the world cup although nothing too malicious. it hasn‘t affected their performances anyway, for tomorrow because mr warner in particular. johnson had declined to take part. meanwhile, mrjohnson has been talking about policies, for the first time on these shores warning that the uk will face since that incident, warner a "democratic explosion" if it does and smith will play against england.
2:03 pm
not leave the eu by 31 october. 0ur political correspondent that aside — it‘s a massive game nick eardley reports. anyway so this will only add things have been a bit more calm to the rivalry, no doubt. in downing street recently but it won't last for ever. whilst many in the game have the race for the keys to this discouraged any booing — place is heating up. england‘s captain eoin morgan said it‘s not his place to tell the crowd this morning, jeremy hunt launched an attack on his rival for ducking how they should feel. interviews and debates. you don't know how sports fans are going to react. i think they are entitled he told borisjohnson not to be to have their own view. a coward, man up and show the nation just because punishment was handed you can cope with intense scrutiny. i just think it's very disrespectful out and two guys served to the conservative party members, their punishment, doesn't mean not to allow them the chance to see they are going to be accepted back into the cricket community straightaway us debating head to head, with open arms. so that they can be very clear it'll take time. in their minds as to what either of us would actually do. it hasn't affected our boys one bit, ican rivals have dubbed him it hasn't affected our boys one bit, i can honestly say that. if anything bottler boris after a televised it has given them more motivation. head—to—head tomorrow was called off. mrjohnson is taking part asa it has given them more motivation. in hustings the tory members, as a player, you don't tend to hear like this one in birmingham a hell of a lot of stuff from the at the weekend. his supporters insist fans, you noise at times but not he is answering questions. there are going to be more than a dozen more of these specifics. i'm sure that's the last hustings around the country.
2:04 pm
thing from —— on the mind if they are walking out to bat if a handful there will be another tv debate, of people or the whole stadium or the next one on itv. there is a huge amount booing them. it doesn't make any of scrutiny and rightly so, difference to how hard they watch and boris has put himself the ball or how hard they doubt forward for that. themselves or anything like that, these pictures have emerged it'sjust a bit of themselves or anything like that, it's just a bit of white noise, themselves or anything like that, it'sjust a bit of white noise, to be fair. of mrjohnson and his partner. meanwhile, some team news from england concerning jason roy. the mail says they were taken scans on a torn hamstring have shown yesterday, a few days after police an improvement but he only were called to the flat had a gentle work—out — following a row. james vince will continue neither side wants to dwell to open the batting, on personal matters with roy now hoping to be back for the game against india but on the political front, there are big, unanswered questions. at edgbaston on sunday. both candidates want us to trust the african football confederation them, that they can get says it will investigate the conduct of cameroon — following their ill—tempered exit a better brexit deal, at the women‘s world cup to england. despite all the warnings that might not be possible, but what if they fail? at one stage it looked as though there are many here who don't believe borisjohnson‘s claims they wouldn‘t play after a couple about a no deal brexit. of video assistant referee decisions there are others who say it went against them. simply won't happen, parliament will block it and even some conservatives warning they might be prepared to bring down caf says the match reflected badly the government to stop not only on african women‘s football no deal happening. but african football on the whole. they‘ll now address the issue at the appropriate are the numbers there to stop no level of governance. deal on the 315t of october fifa are also looking into it. using a vote of no confidence in the government? i believe that there is context to this story.
2:05 pm
absolutely is the case. this cameroon team are one i think a dozen or so members of the most poorly funded women's of parliament on our side would be football team on the whole voting against supporting continent, and i think they went of no deal. into the whole tournament that would include ministers feeling as though it was us as well as backbenchers. against the world, and to have these decisions go against them, mrjohnson says no—deal brexit i think they felt it may be wouldn't be as bad as some think was another example of that. but some of his claims have been ashleigh barty, fresh criticised, like the idea there could be a short standstill, from her success at the french open allowing current trade and the birmingham classic deals to continue. yesterday, is starting life some of his supporters don't as the new world number one — by not playing. sound that enthusiastic. she‘s pulled out of the tennis we are leaving the eu at the latest at eastbourne as she manages by the 31st of october. an ongoing arm injury. it's not about an implementation period anymore. that ship has sailed and gone. karolina pliskova is lying right now, she took the first set, one jeremy hunt knows he has lots of game away from taking the match. work to do to catch the favourite in we‘ve got live coverage from the south coast right now this race. and if he does, steering on bbc two and the bbc sport website, where you can the country through difficult times also watch live coverage will not be straightforward either. of wimbledon qualifying. that‘s all the sport for now.
2:06 pm
let's talk now to norman smith, our assistant political editor. now on afternoon live — is there any chance at borisjohnson let‘s go nationwide and see what‘s might change his mind on these tv happening around the country in our daily visit to the bbc debates? i think not because of this strategy newsrooms around the uk. has worked for him so far what it means we do not get to the cut and we have rogerjohnson, who is going thrust of the whole brexit debate, and one issue has dogged all sides, to be talking to us about bus reform how on earth did you find an answer in manchester and a double whammy to the northern ireland backstop? with peter leavey, telling us about today one group of tory mps who set a patient transfer provider that up today one group of tory mps who set upa today one group of tory mps who set up a commission to try and resolve scooped the big deal and has fell short of its targets. first, roger, that issue believe they've found the answer, the conservative mp who was talk to us, why are they doing this, pa rt answer, the conservative mp who was part of that commission joins me. your answer is what? the alternative first, this whole reform of buses? welcome a couple of years ago, city arrangements commission, which you refer to, as launched its interim regions, london has had a mayorfor report today and that sets out in a long time but lots of other parts of the country are allowed to over 200 pages some provisional directly elect mayors and become suggestions over how to address the city regions. greater manchester was one of those. the merseyside city northern irish border question, it's not about imposing a solution on the region is another. in greater irish or northern irish, it's about manchester, which is made up of ten inviting discussion and what it different authorities, andy burnham,
2:07 pm
essentially does is does not rely on who is now the mayor of greater manchester, two years ago when they got the power is to have greater convoluted and nonexistent control over their transport system, technological solutions, it is built decided he wanted to look into heavily on existing administrative trying to make the bus network techniques that are of the eu 's better. it is 30 years since private companies were allowed to take on customs code and other systems. bus services in greater manchester. that begs the question if it is 0ver those 30 years, the number of already out there why isn't everyone already out there why isn't everyone already saying this is the answer? passengers, he says, has halved. in that's a great question and this is london, it has doubled. he thinks what's been very frustrating about the process so far. the northern the service is not quite as good as irish border issue has been blown it should be. therefore he wants to bring it back under council control, out of all proportion, i believe. there is a workable solution out and to control back of the buses. pa rt and to control back of the buses. part of the problem for the bus there, it has commanded a majority companies in greater manchester is in parliament through the brady that over a similar period of time, amendment, we saw that earlier this greater manchester has invested year, now we have got some real quite heavily in the metrolink flesh on the bounce in this report system, which is a tram system, about how to practically and on the expanding all the time, it is being ground this would look. extended and it‘s taking passengers let me suggest the reason it's not off the buses. they can do the trams they can fight so far is the eu are
2:08 pm
not sure these administrative to do the commuting. however, andy burnham says he wants to look at this and he is completely wedded to procedures will work and so therefore they prefer to stick with trying to make things better, as he their preference, which is for some says, for passages. in the same 30 form of backstop. i disagree with that, i think the eu's direction of travel, if you years in london, bus usage has look at legislation and rules they doubled and it has halved here. that's because they have a different are passed previously, it suggests system, it is more affordable and they are more open to making more convenient, more accessible. exemptions to the rules and guiding that quality brings more customers. principles and they are in favour of i'm afraid the bus companies here reducing barriers to trade, haven't been providing a service simplifying procedures at the border that goes to every community, that's and taking checks away from the border, that's not a crazy easy to use, and is affordable, hence the numbers have dropped. suggestion, that is carried out already within the eu and all over the world. that is a basis from won‘t have the bus company said? they are not happy. stagecoach, who which we suggest solutions in this ru ns report. they are not happy. stagecoach, who runs some of the services, have said if you are right the bottom line is they have delivered a £90 million we only have until october the 31st investment in greener buses since to reach some agreement, surely 2010, they say the mayor has had on there is no chance of getting the eu his desk a compelling £100 million to revisit the backstop by october the 31st? blueprint for bus operators which i would not take what the eu says at could transform the region‘s bus network right now. they also point face value. we've seen throughout
2:09 pm
the negotiations the eu starts with an opening position, as all out that greater manchester has negotiations do, and they have needlessly spent £23 million of moved. we are at the beginning of a taxpayers‘ money on this report to tell them to look into possibly new phase, as we are choosing a taking it back under council prime minister and there will be a new team in the eu and they may have control. there will be a meeting of said no but there have been many discussions between senior all the greater manchester boroughs politicians in uk and those in on friday. andy burnham has the final say. there could be a legal europe would suggest otherwise. challenge from the bus companies as well. it could go on for quite some 0ne europe would suggest otherwise. one of the difficulties is there are no checks at all, goods can travel time this, before the buses change to and from across the border in greater manchester but andy burnham for one says it needs to get freely, whatever system you come up with, it will be worse than what we better. the bus companies are saying they are doing everything they can. have now. it is also true there is a kind of let‘s go to peter levy. a patient border, there is a currency border ambulance service, an ambulance service that is quite happy to wait, between northern ireland and the republic of ireland, there is a vat it carries patients. absolutely. it border, there is a legal border. it is still on the transport theme, it has had a very chequered history, isa border, there is a legal border. it is a fallacy to say there is this is a patient ambulance service seamless and as completely over the for nonemergency patients to get to course of the border, there are and from hospital in north differences on a whole raft of lincolnshire. when they are too ill
2:10 pm
to go under their own steam or issues. yes, when it comes to physically unable to do so. the news transportation of goods there is no —— like the new company is called check or procedure but we can provide solutions which are savoy ventures and they are based in administrative and feasible in kent. they have only held the deliverable and affordable. contract for three months. the some of those are in this report. to previous holder of the contract were get the eu to move you will need stripped of the contract by the some goodwill on their side, how are local ccg. they had been repeatedly you going to get that if you renege on the commitment to pay them at the held to account of her feelings. £39 billion divorce bill? they have had so many complaints it will require goodwill and over the last few years about this, pragmatism on both sides of the including missed appointments, patients writing in saying they had negotiating table. i believe there been left in the freezing cold, the isa negotiating table. i believe there is a huge incentive for the eu to patient —— it was slammed by the demonstrate that goodwill, given our ca re patient —— it was slammed by the care quality commission for a series trading relationship. we have a of faults, identifying 23 areas that deficit in trading in goods with the needed improvement. so tens eu of 96 billion, which means we buy ambulance service lost the contract more from the eu than the other way and incomes this company, savoy. 0n their performance so far this is the round, there are millions ofjobs in managing director. patients that germany alone that depend on british custom so it's in the economic have missed appointments, we have interests of the eu political apologised to, we have made every effort to ensure they get into their leaders to be pragmatic, show
2:11 pm
goodwill and come to the table. appointments on time. there are thanks very much for your time. one mitigating circumstances around some of the issues we would like to be of the failure is in the first three months, one of the major ones being able to debate with borisjohnson the fact we have had to do a new but, as we know, at the moment he is training regime for our entire proving rather difficult to get into staff. we have 56 of our workforce who have had to go on training the television and radio studios. courses on a weekly basis. so for sky news saying that they will not go ahead tomorrow unless he changes the first four months of the contract, we advised the cc6 there his mind, one is a schedule for itv, would be some dipping in our kpi and what else? performance because we need to that's it. they are at the increase capacity. we are now in leadership hustings, around 16 in total for party members around the country but in terms of detailed week 12. after that period we media scrutiny the only one we know believe there will be a significant about is this one on itv but that is increase in target achievement. how is the new service doing? they have after the ballot papers have been only had a contract for a few sent out, presumably quite a few members will have decided before months. they say they have had 12 yea rs of they get to see jeremy months. they say they have had 12 years of experience working with a number of clients to develop a members will have decided before they get to seejeremy hunt and borisjohnson go they get to seejeremy hunt and boris johnson go head they get to seejeremy hunt and borisjohnson go head to head, which patient focused and effective is why we had jeremy hunt this service. their words, not mine. they have only been going three months, morning in effect appealing to the bbc saying why don't you hold a head missed some targets already. health to head before the ballot papers go bosses decided they needed to reach out? 95% for priority patients, that is it isa out? it is a given that they can come on
2:12 pm
the show anytime, you and i can sort cancer sufferers and those who are going for dialysis, for example. that out. they should arrive 30 minutes or please, please, borisjohnson, if you are watching, you very welcome. less for their appointments. however thank you very much. in may, only 71% arrived in that time. savoy say their performance is the former deputy prime minister improving. every area around the and labour peer lord prescott has been admitted to hospital after suffering a stroke. country, you will have viewers now his family announced that the 81—year—old was taken ill on friday. who have views on a similar service they praised staff at in their part of the uk, we will hull royal infirmary and asked for privacy to allow him "time and space to make a full recovery". have to come back and see how savoy facebook‘s head of global affairs, are doing in the future. one of the the former deputy prime minister sir nick clegg, has told the bbc that the social biggest complaints across the country is having to prove that they media platform is in favour of new industry rules and regulations. speaking to the today programme, are eligible for a free patient sir nick said he wants to create an "oversight board", transport service. but no doubt we with the power to make independent will keep an eye on that and no rulings on whether questionable doubt you will hear from other content should be removed viewers and i‘m sure you are from the site. and he said there was no evidence that facebook affected the result eligible for your free chauffeur of the eu referendum. driven journey eligible for your free chauffeur drivenjourney home in these companies are huge and affect eligible for your free chauffeur driven journey home in about 20 minutes! you never let me down, every aspect of our lives, our social lives, business there is always a sting! peter, thank you. roger, i‘m looking at the lines, everyday lives, a third of the world's

2:14 pm
how to protect elections from outside interference and so on. but you are accepting... that wasn‘t my fault! i am hearing things in my ear. to some, it will sound as if you're saying, don't blame us, nothing we can do, if you think as the world looks to cut carbon dioxide emissions and attempt there's a problem you go and sort it out. to reduce the impact of climate change — scientists are meeting in germany to explore how to put i don't think it's an issue of blame, i think it is right that carbon dioxide to use — including for commercial gain. companies like facebook until recently it was assumed acknowledge the mistakes emissions from industry would have that they have made. to be buried to prevent them escaping into the atmosphere, but inventors are now and of course mistakes finding ways to use c02 have been made. as a valuable raw material. it is just that i don't think some firms say they are already that it is in any way conceivable, making a profit by turning c02 and more than that, i don't think into fertilisers and bubbles forfizzy drinks. it's right for private companies our environment analyst to set the rules of the road roger harrabin has more. for something which is as profoundly important as how how can we store c02? technology serves society. well, let‘s start in the north of england, where they‘re making and in the end, this is not building blocks with c02. yes, building blocks. it sounds unlikely, something that big tech companies, but they mix the c02 with ash from a household waste incinerator. from the united states or elsewhere, can or should do on their own. making the blocks involves and i'm of the view that some people an awesome chemical process. sort of yell at tech,
2:15 pm
watch this. i think it's important that we fix tech and resolve this tension that that is incinerator ash mixed with water. does exist between the amazing benefits that technology brings this is carbon dioxide. but it also brings risks to society. and i want to see, and that's part of my newjob, companies here we go. like facebook play an increasingly shake it all about. mature role, not shunning regulation but actually advocating it in a sensible way. you're watching afternoon live, the c02 has been completely absorbed these are our headlines: and it‘s turned into a solid. tory leadership candidate jeremy hunt calls on borisjohnson here‘s the chemistry to "stop being a coward" and take on an industrial scale, part in a tv debate this week. two wastes making a useful product. sky says it will delay it unless both take part. here, we‘re taking carbon dioxide, we‘re treating the waste and making facebook is in favour a limestone and there are other of an ‘oversight board' to regulate companies that are doing the platform's content, all manner of different things says its head of global affairs sir nick clegg. with carbon dioxide. the uk's first gambling addiction in suffolk, these mounds of clinic for young people is to be horse manure are being turned opened by nhs england — into c02 bubbles for drinks. it's thought more than 50,000 children have a problem. the horse poo and straw mix comes scientists meet in germany here to these gigantic tanks. to discuss how to make use of carbon dioxide, they‘re like large stomachs full as the world looks to cut emissions. of bacteria that gobble up the mix in sport, newcastle united manager and produce two streams of gas —

circumstances. in the background to all this is the 2050 nuclear deal but today's warning confirms they are going to make pretty much the which the americans withdrew from same as they made last year. the business is struggling generally last year —— 2050 nuclear deal. the because of falling sales in china europeans had desperately been and flat sales in the us and across trying to keep the deal afloat, europe. then to layer on top of that they've been into iran yesterday but this diesel gate scandal, it makes they've been into iran yesterday but the signs do not look good, the things worse. there is another story iranians said they felt europeans the will to keep the nuclear deal about what is happening injersey, going. as for the british, they said lloyds banking group closing the iran should curb its regional accou nts lloyds banking group closing the a ccou nts of lloyds banking group closing the accounts of 8000 holders who didn‘t ambitions here in this particular reply when asked questions about pa rt ambitions here in this particular part of the middle east so what their identity. what does that tell happens next? mike pompeo will visit us their identity. what does that tell us about jersey and their identity. what does that tell us aboutjersey and about lloyds banking group? well, it possibly asia next worst he says he wants to says something about the 8000 people build this global coalition against that received the letters asking for the iranians —— where he says he information and theyjust filed it wa nts to the iranians —— where he says he wants to build. i asked a senior away in the draw. i don't think we american official why the iranians can draw any really big conclusions should trust a country that changed its mind or international agreement, from this. that 8000 is about 5% of he said the deal was weak and it was going to expire too quickly and he lloyds from this. that 8000 is about 5% of lloyd s ba n k accused the iranians of responding from this. that 8000 is about 5% of lloyds bank international's jersey operations customers. so it's a to diplomacy with violence. relatively small number. but you are

attend those places run by mr shahid. mr shahid said false told this is at doncaster council. allegations have been made about in public like that caused him to become the target of right—wing not. would you do that? um i'm being told this is at doncaster councillj am saying nothing! it makes complete extremists who have come to his home to threaten him and threaten his sense and anyone who has a fridge in family. the office, they will know that it's been 15 years since former 0asis frontman liam gallagher things go missing. i think perhaps stepped out onto the famous pyramid stage at glastonbury, but on saturday, he'll be back. the company should provide the milk. with his second solo album that would be the nice thing to do. on the way, he took a break from rehearsals to speak to colin paterson about politics, what a time we live in. if it gets and that famous feud with his brother noel. you've got a busy time at the moment. yeah. shockwave, the single. nicked, it gets past your eyes!|j yeah. sounds like you're quite angry. nicked, it gets past your eyes!” was wondering why you were so quiet! # you saw me ride up the river # you had to hold me back... let‘s have a look at the markets. it i'm sure a lot of people would just, you know, be lazy and go, "oh, it's about your brother." but there's a lot of snide people out there, notjust him. has never really been below about you know what i mean? so it could be aimed at a lot of people. that's up to you to find out, isn't it? 1.11... has never really been below about 1.11. .. you # it's coming round has never really been below about 1.11... you look so has never really been below about 1.11. .. you look so surprised, you‘re supposed to know this!
2:24 pm
like a shock wave. sometimes you will see a big move, there's a lot of protests going on, what would you protest about in life? it gets quite exciting!” i'm not into politics and all that, but i do keep an eye on it. sometimes you will see a big move, it gets quite exciting! i can see but i don't know much about brexit that. you are in the rightjob! and that, but i'd have a word with the mayor. he seems to not be doing a good job, you know what i mean? all them kids getting staying with entertainment... knifed and all that. and the only thing that ever comes out of his mouth is, "london is open". what, open for knife crime and dying and stuff? every time you wake up in the morning, there's toy story a has broken global box some 16—year—old kid been knifed to death. office records for an animated and i've got kids at that age, you know what i mean? movie. out and about, going doing it earned 1—hundred—and—87—million their thing, you know what i mean? pounds since opening living, being young and all that. so that freaks me right out. it's been one of the worldwide over the weekend, strange things about recently, suddenly all these politicians are coming out and saying that they've been -- £187 —— £187 million. taking drugs in the past. yeah, yeah. shame on them. i wasjust wondering if you ever, have you ever seen a politician take drugs? that‘s it for now. next, the bbc no, no. news at five. now we will have a i don't hang out with politicians and i don't look at the weather with chris. hang out with celebrities that hang out with politicians. 0r these fake rock and roll stars that hang out with politicians. the atmosphere is fully charged and ijust hang out with me we could see some very big
2:25 pm
and my missus and my kids and my mates. thunderstorms working up from france i don't knock about in that vibe. to affect parts of england, if i did see a politician taking particularly through the night in. drugs, man, he'd get a crack 0ver particularly through the night in. over the next few days, it will be round the head. like that. quite cloudy, few bright spells, but what are you doing, you doughnut? the risk is there for some thundery you know what i mean? you wouldn't approve? no, no. downpours. we have seen some they're meant to be running the country, aren't they? downpours. we have seen some downpours already today, wet weather it is ten years since 0asis split up. pushing north across scotland, some yeah. storms elsewhere, but down towards can you believe that? not really, no. the south of the uk that our it hasn't split up in my mind, attention turns, because we already you know what i mean, when i think about it. have a number of thunderstorms here. you know what i mean? they will tend to drift north. ijust think someone's overnight we will start to see the just been abducted by some strange thing, you know what i mean? risk of some heavy downpours indeed. i'm still fighting the cause, you know what i mean, for it. could get around 20 to 30 whether it's under my name or what, millimetres in the space of an hour. i still do 0asis songs and that 0ver millimetres in the space of an hour. over the space of a few hours, the because i sang them and i feel risk of getting about a month‘s like they're a big part of me, you know what i mean? worth of rain. the areas most at just because, you know. and there's a lot of people going, risk, probably central and southern i can't believe he's england, parts of the midlands, east still doing noel‘s songs. they're not noel‘s songs. anglia and the south east. the rain they were written for the band called 0asis. will tend to move northwards, what's strange to me is the fact probably with lots of thunder and that you obviously want the band lightning overnight across these to get back together, areas. it will feel quite warm and in spite of this. i don't want the band to get back together, we shouldn't have nggy. areas. it will feel quite warm and muggy. in scotland, rain will tend split up, you know what i mean? to ease off but staying cloudy. we there was no big deal,
2:26 pm
you know what i mean? do have some slightly lower he's making out as if i stabbed temperatures, 11 to 13. for tuesday, one of his cats or, you know, slapped one of his kids or dare i say it, this area of rain will continue to tried it on with his missus, extend north, still a little bit of you know what i mean? it's like, leave it out, mate. uncertainty exactly where the heaviest bursts will be. right it's like, we had a little argument, you know what i mean? conditions for northern scotland and thank you very much. probably the cloud braking to give you're welcome. some sunny spells towards southern that was great. the ever charming liam gallagher. parts of england and wales where it will continue to feel humid towards the south east. that humidity still chris fawkes, beautiful skies over potentially sparking off more thunderstorms late in the day. london, it's a very lively, what's wednesday is a different kind of happening. europe is now getting day, the winds will be lit about tending to come down from the what we are threatening to get. north—east. likely to be quite a lot we are looking at some high of cloud, some of it could be quite temperatures. we will get thunderstorms but they are driven by low, even bringing the odd white very hot air. this is the current shower. the best of any sunshine most likely across north—eastern temperature records of fortune, parts of scotland, perhaps northern there are some higher records ireland, may be parts of north west through there are some higher records throuthuly there are some higher records through july and august england. temperatures coming down, looking at highs of around 23 in there are some higher records throuthuly and august but 41 celsius is the currentjune london but warmer in edinburgh a 24. temperature record. switzerland is later in the week, as the area of worth watching, 37 celsius, the high pressure reorientate towards highest temperatures have ever been the near continent, starting to drag in switzerland. they have red warnings for tomorrow when they in some warmerairagain the near continent, starting to drag in some warmer air again from the south east. so temperatures again
2:27 pm
could reach 39 celsius. in places will build later in the week, it you would not imagine. places in will build later in the week, it will become quite hot, there is a chance we could see temperatures up to the low 30s. but it is also going switzerland well known for their skiing, not for structuring, to the low 30s. but it is also going to be pretty breezy. staying warm switzerland well known for their skiing, not forstructuring, but that's what we've got at the moment. and humid, muggy by night, then it's all down to this, we've got an becoming mainly dry and sunny later in the week. that‘s your weather. 0mega pattern where we put loud here, ridge and the mid—atlantic and lau here, the patent that does not move from west to each very much i did something climate scientists are very worried about, we could get more of these blocking patterns because the jet stream is powered more of these blocking patterns because thejet stream is powered by temperature contrasts and with the poll is warming up quicker than in the tropics and the rest of the planets, the contrast in temperatures are reducing and some people think it's making the jet strea m m ove people think it's making the jet stream move more. people think it's making the jet stream move more. the consequence of this block pattern as we get this area of low pressure to the south—west of us, southerly winds dragging up this hot air from south—west of us, southerly winds dragging up this hot airfrom africa and into europe. the big question is how hot will it get?
2:28 pm
so, how hot will it get? good, you've been listening. towards the end of the week, thursday and friday, we could see temperatures into parts of spain reaching 43, a0 four into parts of spain reaching a3, a0 four celsius. the record france a1. what is that in old money? it is into the hundreds of fahrenheit. about 107, 108. it is a blisteringly hot and could be breaking those national records for june. there are warnings out, red warnings in the next 2a hours for switzerland, the authorities in france have been setting up cool rooms and advising the population to ta ke rooms and advising the population to take more showers to keep cool from the excessive heat. you better tell us what is in store. all the hot weather building at the moment is also creating a big
2:29 pm
thunderstorms. the jet stream pattern with our area of low pressure is grabbing hold of the hot airand forming this pressure is grabbing hold of the hot air and forming this weather front. along the front, if you look up at the moment it's very cloudy but we get bursts of very heavy thundery rain and that's forming across northern areas of france at the moment and the concern is for the next few hours that's coming our way. quite a bit of cloud for the next few days, big thunderstorms are on the way as well. with those downpours, we put weather warnings out in force for them. throughout the afternoon and evening, we will seep thunderstorms already developing over france drifting northwards, some downpours elsewhere, quite wet across parts of today at five — jeremy hunt tells his fellow scotla nd elsewhere, quite wet across parts of scotland at the moment, thunderstorms elsewhere. feeling conservative leadership candidate borisjohnson to "man up" warm and humid towards east anglia and face public scrutiny. in south—east england but the further north and west, the fresher mr hunt urges the leadership it gets. 0vernight the next batch of frontrunner not to ‘be a coward‘ and face him in a tv storms approaches and we could see debate this week.
2:30 pm
lots of rain, up to 30 millimetres the conservative party will start to feel cheated of having a proper perhaps injust lots of rain, up to 30 millimetres leadership campaign if the front perhaps in just the space of one runner isn‘t prepared to subject hour or so. 0ver several hours we himself to the scrutiny of tv could get a month's debates, to the scrutiny hour or so. 0ver several hours we could get a months worth of rain in of media interviews. some places. the main risk area is central and southern england, south—east england, east anglia, but sky news says it with those torrential downpours will have to cancel plans for a televised debate tomorrow through the night time and lots of unless boris johnson agrees to take part. thunder and lightning. further north the other main stories in the rain clears from northern on bbc news at 5: scotla nd in the rain clears from northern scotland and becoming dry but still the us prepares to announce more sanctions quite cloudy, fresh air across against iran later today northern areas. tomorrow, this area as tensions continue to rise between the two countries. of rain pushes northwards, some uncertainty over exactly where it will be heaviest, quite a chaotic atmosphere with all the energy being pumped into it. towards the south, lots of cloud in the morning but breaking to give some sunny spells, humid towards london. temperatures are generally in the mids to high teens with lots of cloud. for wednesday, we bring in more of a north—easterly wind, quite a lot of cloud around an outside chance of
2:31 pm
some showers as well. with those cooler and cloudier conditions, temperatures will be falling, not as one for england and wales, 23 celsius. given some decent sunshine in scotland we could see temperatures around 2a celsius in edinburgh. later on the area of high pressure reorientate itself and we drank in south easterly winds once again so temperatures will be rising through thursday and friday, at least the high 20s for some. warm and humid but the weather generally dry and sunny. monday nights on the weight but also quite breezy. in the short—term, high temperatures we are keeping an eye on and the risk of torrential and thundery downpours over the next few hours, particularly for central southern england, south—east england, the midlands and east anglia as well.
2:32 pm
this is bbc news — our latest headlines. the tory leadership gets personal as jeremy hunt tells rival borisjohnson "not to be a coward" — and debate with him on tv this week. i think it's very disrespectful
2:33 pm
to conservative party members, not to allow them the chance to see us debating head—to—head. john prescott — the former labour deputy prime minister — is in hospital after suffering a stroke. facebook is in favour of an "oversight board" to regulate the platform's content, says its head of global affairs, sir nick clegg. the uk's first gambling addiction clinic for young people is to be opened by nhs england — it's thought more than 50,000 children have a problem. and later this hour — the care home that's built a replica high street to stimulate the senses of its residents. sport now on afternoon live with ben. first, there's been some managerial news involving a premier league club today? yes, newcastle united. the club in question. the manager, rafa benitez.
2:34 pm
the news coming as no surprise, he is off. probably more disappointment for newcastle fans than shock. benitez has been a hugely popular figure at st james's park. a manager of his calibre, who has won the champions league, managed hugely successful clubs like real madrid, inter milan and liverpool. he joined them back in 2016 when they were relegated — brought them back to the premier league and kept them there despite not having a huge kitty to be able to spend on transfers with the club finishing mid table for the last two seasons. the club's owner mike ashley has come in for most of the anger from fans rather than benitez as he's been trying to sell the club. benitez had a huge offer to manage in china, he's been linked with the vacant post at chelsea. although the bbc understands it is the chinese side dalian yifang who are most likely to acquire his services. do you know how much? about a year. so, he'll go, won't he? probably well! let's move to
2:35 pm
cricket. england and australia are meeting tomorrow. it will be totally live,. remember david warner and steve smith were two of the protangonists in what became known as sandpapergate — when they and a team—mate cheated in a game in south africa using sandpaper to rough up the ball? they've been a bit of pantomime villains so far at the world cup although nothing too malicious. it hasn't affected their performances anyway, warner in particular. well, for the first time in these shores since that incident, warner and smith will play against england. whilst many in the game have discouraged any booing from fans — england's captain eoin morgan has today said it's not his place to tell the crowd at lord's tomorrow how they should feel. you don't know how sports fans are going to react. i think they are entitled to have their own view. just because punishment was handed
2:36 pm
out and two guys served with the punishment, doesn't mean they are going to be accepted back into the cricket community straightaway with open arms. it'll take time. meanwhile some team news from england concerning jason roy. scans on a torn hamstring have shown an improvement but he only had a gentle work—out — james vince will continue to deputise, with roy now hoping to be back for the game against india at edgbaston on sunday. the african football confederation says it will investigate the conduct of cameroon following their ill—tempered exit at the women's world cup to england. at one stage it looked as though they wouldn't play after a couple of video assistant referee decisions went against them. caf says the match reflected badly not only on african women's football but african football on the whole. they'll now address the issue at the appropriate level of governance. there is context to this story. this
2:37 pm
cameroon team are one of the most poorly funded women's football team oi'i poorly funded women's football team on the whole continent, and i think they went into the whole tournament feeling as though it was us against the world, and to have these decisions go against them, i think they felt it may be was another example of that. andy murray says he won't be rushing his return to singles tennis, despite winning a title on his comeback. he said it was incredible he'd won with a metal hip, after he and feliciano lopez beat joe salisbury and rajeev ram, to take the doubles trophy at queen's. it's only five months since murray had the hip surgery that saved his career, and he's taking things slowly. it would be nice to play at the us open. i got so much enjoyment winning a first round doubles match here that, you know, that's enough. like, i don't have to be getting to the us open this year and be, you know, really competitive and have to win the tournament for me to enjoy it. you know, it would be nice,
2:38 pm
but i really don't mind. finally — some of you love to roll around in a bit of mud. these guys definitely do. this is a swamp football competition in a russian forest around 60 kilometres from st petersburg. halves in this — clearly exhausting — form of football last 13 minutes. the winning team were victorious in the final by a goal to nil, meaning they will represent russia at the next world cup in finland. many, many, many questions arising from that. one, there is a world cup in the sport, and two, who has to ta ke in the sport, and two, who has to take the kit home and wash it all? they are not exactly rushing, are they? thank you, i shall see you later. conservative leadership contender jeremy hunt has described the expected cancellation of a tv leadership debate as
2:39 pm
"incredibly disappointing". the sky news debate is set to take place on tuesday but sky news have said it will be cancelled if borisjohnson refuses to take part. mr hunt has been speaking to the bbc. it's incredibly disappointing stop i'm disappointed that sky had pulled the debate, i'm disappointed he wasn't willing to take part and this is increasingly beginning to feel like the 2017 general election campaign, where one of the frontrunners refused to take part in tv debates and frankly, the conservative party will start to feel cheated of having a proper leadership campaign if the frontrunner isn't prepared to subject himself to the scrutiny of tv debates and the scrutiny of media interviews. it is only two weeks now before postal ballots arrive, and we owe the conservative party, we owe the country a proper contest. what does it say about the character of your opponent, the way he has ducked things thus far? i'm not someone who
2:40 pm
thinks it will help this campaign if leadership contenders start talking about each other‘s characters, but what i will say is that day one, our new prime minister will have to take decisions about brexit, and to do that, they will need a mandate of having been clear about what they are planning to do and having won the contest off the back of it. so both boris and i need to give straight answers to simple questions. will you call an election if parliament blocks a new deal brexit? yes or no? we need to know the answers to those kinds of questions otherwise you won't have a mandate to deliver a very difficult decision. panorama tonight talking about the no deal possibility and the possibility your fellow conservatives might vote no confidence in the government that committed to no deal, what is your reaction? i hope that doesn't happen because i've always thought that to get a good deal you need to leave
2:41 pm
no—deal on the table but it also shows how difficult it's going to be for our new prime minister to ram through a new deal brexit, and why the choice we have, the best way, the choice we have, the best way, the most likely way to deliver brexit is to send to brussels someone brexit is to send to brussels someone they will talk to, someone they will negotiate with, someone who can actually get a better deal that can get through parliament, and that's me. jeremy hunt, talking there. it's being described as a pivotal moment in turkey's recent history — with celebrations continuing throughout the night in istanbul following victory for the republican people's party in the city's mayoral election. it was the second time voters there had gone to the polls — after president erdogan demanded a re—count. there was one — and he was defeated even more heavily. in his victory speech, ekrem imamoglu said he would build democracy in the city. a warning — mark lowen's report contains some flashing images. cheering this is what political magic in turkey looks like. the opposition has waited a quarter of a century to win back istanbul,
2:42 pm
to find their voice against president erdogan. now they have it, roaring to success, ekrem imamoglu winning the most important city in turkey by a landslide for that cheered as a hero as he gave his trademark positive message. this society will be greeted with freedoms and will fix wrongdoing, you will see, he said. i have faith in our people and also believe that people have faith in democracy. istanbul awoke to its new mayor and checking to a turning point. —— and turkey to a turning point. as a woman i feel more positive and it is a new step for all of us. now i came back to vote because i believe he can change something and i'm part of that and so proud of it and maybe i can come back to my country. it is the biggest setback
2:43 pm
for the 25 year career of president erdogan for the powerful, polarising leader gambled on a rerun and it backfired and now will prompt talk of the beginning of his end for the persecuted here finally see respite, like this journalist detained for insulting the president. turkey is the world's leading of journalists. —— leading jailer. translation: when knew that sooner or later erdogan would be beaten, he said himself democracy is like a train and you ride it and then you get off. it will not be easy to undo the harm that erdogan has done to this country but this election gives us faith in the future. for turkey's opposition this result encapsulates so many emotions. joy at the victory and relief at finally beating president erdogan, defiance that they more secular, liberal values can prevail in the country today and pride that
2:44 pm
despite being battered so much in recent years, turkish democracy can bounce back. a crucial but divided country is at a watershed. turks like to back a winner and from now it feels like they have found a new one. mark lowen, bbc news, istanbul. as the world looks to cut carbon dioxide emissions and attempt to reduce the impact of climate change — scientists are meeting in germany to explore how to put carbon dioxide to use — including for commercial gain. until recently it was assumed emissions from industry would have to be buried to prevent them escaping into the atmosphere, but inventors are now finding ways to use c02 as a valuable raw material. some firms say they are already making a profit by turning c02 into fertilisers and bubbles forfizzy drinks. 0ur environment analyst roger harrabin has more. how can we store c02? well, let's start in the north of england, where they're making building blocks with c02.
2:45 pm
yes, building blocks. it sounds unlikely, but they mix the c02 with ash from a household waste incinerator. making the blocks involves an awesome chemical process. watch this. that is incinerator ash mixed with water. this is carbon dioxide. here we go. shake it all about. the c02 has been completely absorbed and is turned into a solid. here's the chemistry on an industrial scale, two wastes making a useful product. here, we're taking carbon dioxide, we're treating the waste and making a limestone and there are other companies that are doing all manner of different things with carbon dioxide. in suffolk, these mounds of horse manure are being turned into c02 bubbles for drinks.
2:46 pm
the horse poo and straw mix comes here to these gigantic tanks. they're like large stomachs full of bacteria that gobble up the mix and produce two streams of gas — one of them is methane. that goes to heat peoples' homes and help cook peoples' dinners. the other stream of gas is carbon dioxide, pure carbon dioxide, and they're selling that. bizarrely, it's being bought by pubs to put the fizz into lager and lemonade. you can't taste it, of course. near swindon, they're making fertiliser with c02. the first ingredient is this fibrous stuff, it's left over after you've put cow dung into a biogas digester, like the one we just saw. this stuff is low in nutrients, little use for crop fertiliser, so the firm adds a liquid waste from the fertiliser industry, along with nutrients and, crucially, c02. here's what you get — little pellets
2:47 pm
of top—class fertiliser. what's most satisfying for us is to take a material like carbon dioxide, which is fundamentally useless, as far as most people are concerned, and positively harmful, and then transform that into something that is beneficial. these technologies won't solve climate change but they will help, a bit. roger harrabin, bbc news. jamie is here with the business news ina jamie is here with the business news in a moment. we are having a debate. some era is in the most glamorous location. —— samira. first a look at the headlines on afternoon live. jeremy hunt tells borisjohnson not to bea jeremy hunt tells borisjohnson not to be a coward and debate with him on television this week.
2:48 pm
lord prescott, the former labour deputy prime minister, is in hospital after suffering a stroke on friday. facebook is in favour of an oversight board to regulate the platform's contents, says its head of global affairs, sir nick clegg. here's your business headlines on afternoon live. a £100 million fund has been set aside to help uk firms cash in on the boom in offshore wind. the uk is well suited to exploiting wind power and turbines have been erected in more than 30 locations across the country. but trade unions say the boom has not generated enough jobs for uk workers. lloyds banking group says 8,000 bank accounts have been suspended injersey over money laundering worries. the bank began contacting customers three years ago, to make sure they knew enough about the identity of each account holder. the ones they got no answer from have had their accounts frozen. the company which makes mercedes—benz vehicles has
2:49 pm
cut its profit forecast again because of the diesel emissions scandal. germany's daimler says a "high three digit million amount" is being put aside. on saturday, german regulators ordered the company to recall 60,000 diesel cars that it found were fitted with software to cheat emissions tests. you pronounce daimler in the german way? right, mr trump you pronounce daimler in the german way? right, mrtrump and president xi are talking trade at the g20. are we expecting anything from that? the feeling at the moment is not. g20 sta rts feeling at the moment is not. g20 starts on thursday, they will be meeting friday or saturday. there have been some quite high hopes they would get some kind of progress, we are not going to see any kind of deal, these things take weeks, months or years to really sort out. but we might get some kind of
2:50 pm
declaration or something like that. it is hopeful. but over the last few days, the hopes have been slightly fading, there is not good mood music, as they say foster we can talk to samira about this. she is down by the seaside. no, she's not! it is new york! we are actuallyjust ata it is new york! we are actuallyjust at a seaport, which is a long the body of water, we decided to come out here because what better location to talk about trade than to be ata location to talk about trade than to be at a port where you see a lot of goods coming in and out of this area? the goods coming in and out of this area ? the focus goods coming in and out of this area? the focus this week in new york for investors will certainly be trade and although it is monday morning, investors are really looking towards friday, when we see president xi and president trump will be meeting on the sidelines of the 620 meeting injapan. yes, jamie was correct in suggesting that perhaps the mood music has changed a bit and people are not really
2:51 pm
feeling that confident about what will come out of this meeting. but there are those that have said, as long as the two sides are sitting down and speaking to each other, thatis down and speaking to each other, that is really something i should be celebrated. progress will not be in a trade deal, no one is really expecting that, but what they want to here is some positive tone coming from both of these leaders. so that perhaps we might see an end to this trade war sometime in the near future. other problems mr trump has in terms of trade, iran as well, i huge amount of sanctions being imposed upon iran, and india as well, the have been changing the trade status with america. all those things going on this week as well. there are a lot of trade skirmishes between other countries in the united states that we need to keep track of. iran is certainly one of those places, we heard from
2:52 pm
president trump over the weekend on twitter, suggesting that the united states could impose more sanctions on iran. what that would look like is unclear, given the harsh economic sanctions that have already been put in place. and then of course, there is india, mike pompeo is in india right now a few weeks ago the united states eliminated its preferential trade agreement with india, and as retaliation reesor india has now placed duties on a significant amount of us exports. —— as a retaliation, we saw india. we expect mike pompeo is in india to try and smooth things out between the two sides. samira, thanks very much. that's the statue of liberty, which should have given it away! 0k, what will we talk about later? basically
2:53 pm
about the markets this week. and also about that story about lloyds banking group suspending 8000 accounts, a lot, injersey. they sent out messages three years ago saying, tell us a bit more about yourselves! 8000 didn't respond so they closed the account. see you later, jamie. a care home in birmingham has built a replica high street, complete with tea rooms and a post office, for its residents and visitors to use. robert harvey house created sensory street, which also includes a host of animals, to help stimulate memories and senses. more than half of the residents at the home are living with dementia. catrin nye has been to visit. at this care home in birmingham, they've built an entire sensory street — a shopping street complete with a tea rooms, a sweet shop, a butcher's shop, a phone box, a garage and a post office. what sweets do you want? have you got your money to pay for it?
2:54 pm
no. 0h! and then, at the end of it, parrots, guinea pigs, ducks and a couple of hungry goats, all designed to stimulate the senses of the residents here. i went around this morning on my own, and first of all i met the parrots, and i sat down on the bench andjust shouting, "hello! hello!" i love it here. it's lovely. jam or cream or both, mum? both. both! i might have known. the majority of residents that come to us with advanced dementia, their health is going to decline. even if we haven't got a glorious day like today, we'll wrap them up in a blanket, bring them out, take them into the tea room, put the heating on in the tea room and just try and make the day special. the home also cares for people with mental health problems. chris and his wife jane have been together 22 years and were both enjoying retirement. jane spent four years in various
2:55 pm
hospitals and mental health institutions. she doesn't remember any of it. some days she didn't even recognize chris. since she's been in here, when the consultant came, the consultant said... she thought it was a miracle the way that jane has recovered, cos she recognizes me, she recognises people, she socialises. she loves the tea shop, and when, on special occasions, like valentine's day, they set it up as a valentine's day restaurant, and that really touched, jane, you know? jane wasn't sure she was strong enough to talk to us on camera, but she's decided she can do it. it took four years to get me better. as soon as i came here, with the animals and all the care and the love and because of devotion and love, it got me better. "jane, you've done so well today, you've been walking so well everywhere.
2:56 pm
love, your chrissy. love you, popchick." when did you do those, chris? she likes it. i love it... yeah, kind of love it. time for a look at the weather. we could see some thunderstorms working up from france to affect parts of england, particularly through the night in. 0ver parts of england, particularly through the night in. over the next few days it will be quite cloudy, few days it will be quite cloudy, few bright spells, but the risk is there for some thundery downpours. we have seen some downpours already today, some wet weather pushing north across scotland, few storms elsewhere, but down towards the south of the uk that our attention now turns to because we already have
2:57 pm
some thunderstorms here. they will tend to drift northwards. overnight we will start to see the risk of some heavy downpours indeed. could get around 20 to 30 millimetres in the space of an hour, and over the space of a few hours, about a months worth of rain. the areas most at risk, probably central and southern england, parts of the midlands, east anglia and the south east. the rainbow dry northwards probably with lots of thunder and lightning. it will feel quite warm and muggy. further north in scotland, outbreaks of rain easing off but staying quite cloudy through the night. we do have some slightly lower temperatures, 11 to 13. for tuesday, this area of rain will continue to extend northwards, still a bit of uncertainty for the heaviest bursts will be. brighter conditions for northern scotland and probably the cloud braking to give some sunny spells towards southern parts of england and wales where it will continue to feel humid towards the south east. that humidity still potentially sparking some more
2:58 pm
thunderstorms late on in the day. wednesday is a different kind of day, the winds will be lighter but tending to come down from the north—east. likely to be quite a lot of cloud. some of it could be quite low, even bringing the odd light shower. the best of the century most likely across north—eastern parts of scotland, parts of northern ireland, may be parts of north—west england. temperatures coming down, highs of around 23 in london but warmer in edinburgh at 2a. later in the week, the high pressure reorientate towards the near continent, we will start to drag in some warmer air again from the south east. so temperatures again will build later in the week, it will become quite hot, there's a chance we could see temperatures up to the low 30s. but it is also going to be pretty breezy. staying warm and humid, muqqy breezy. staying warm and humid, muggy by night, mainly dry and sunny later in the week.

3:00 pm
hello, you're watching afternoon live. i'm simon mccoy. today at three: the tory leadership gets personal asjeremy hunt tells borisjohnson to "man up". mr hunt says he isn't interested in mrjohnson's private life and calls for him to not show cowardice and face him in a tv debate this week the conservative party will start to feel cheated of having a proper leadership campaign if the front runner is not prepared to subject himself to the scrutiny of tv debates and the scrutiny of media interviews. lord prescott — the former labour deputy prime minister — is in hospital after suffering a stroke. facebook is in favour of an ‘oversight board' to regulate the platform's content, says its head of global affairs sir nick clegg.
3:01 pm
the uk's first gambling addiction clinic for young people is to be opened by nhs england — it's thought more than 50,000 children have a problem. coming up on afternoon live all the sport — ben croucher. after three up years at newcastle united, rafa benitez is to leave the clu b united, rafa benitez is to leave the club at the end of the month after failing to agree a new contract, with the chinese super ligue most likely to be his destination. thanks, chris. also coming up — scientists meet to discuss how we can put carbon dioxide to use, as the world looks to cut emissions. hello, everyone, this is afternoon live. i'm simon mccoy.
3:02 pm
the tory leadership race has turned more personal, withjeremy hunt urging rival borisjohnson not to be "a coward" about facing public scrutiny. he said that mrjohnson should "man up" and debate with him on tv, before most conservative members vote. it comes as sky news announced it was cancelling a planned debate for tomorrow because mr johnson had declined to take part. meanwhile, mrjohnson has been talking about policies, warning that the uk will face a "democratic explosion" if it does not leave the eu by 31st october. 0ur political correspondent nick eardley reports. things have been a bit calmer in downing street recently but it won't last for ever. the race for the keys to this place is heating up. this morning, jeremy hunt launched an attack on his rivalfor ducking interviews and debates. he told borisjohnson not to be a coward, "man up and show the nation you can cope with intense scrutiny." i just think it's very disrespectful to the conservative party members, not to allow them the chance to see us
3:03 pm
debating head to head, so that they can be very clear in their minds as to what either of us would actually do. rivals have dubbed him bottler boris after a televised head—to—head tomorrow was called off. mrjohnson is taking part in hustings for tory members, like this one in birmingham at the weekend. his supporters insist he is answering questions. there's going to be more than a dozen more of these hustings around the country. there's going to be another tv debate, the next one on itv. so of course there is a huge amount of scrutiny and rightly so, and boris has put himself forward for that. these pictures have emerged of mrjohnson and his partner, carrie symonds. the mail says they were taken yesterday, a few days after police were called to their flat following a row. neither side wants to dwell on personal matters, but on
3:04 pm
the politicalfront, there are big, unanswered questions. both candidates want us to trust them, that they can get a better brexit deal, despite all the warnings that might not be possible, but what if they fail? there are many here who don't believe borisjohnson's claims about a no deal brexit. there are others who say it simply won't happen, parliament will block it and even some conservatives warning they might be prepared to bring down the government to stop no deal happening. are the numbers there to stop a no deal on the 31st of october, maybe using a vote of no confidence in the government? i believe that absolutely is the case. i think a dozen or so members of parliament on our side would be voting against supporting of no deal. that would include ministers as well as backbenchers. that would include ministers as well as backbenchers. mrjohnson says a no—deal brexit wouldn't be as bad as some think, but some of his claims have been criticised, like the idea there could be a short standstill, allowing current trade deals to continue.
3:05 pm
some of his supporters don't sound all that enthusiastic. we are leaving the eu at the latest by the 31st of october. this is not about an implementation period anymore. that debate, that ship has sailed and gone. so the campaigning goes on, two men who want to steer the country through difficult times but it won't be simple. nick eardley, bbc news, westminster. let's talk now to nick now. borisjohnson doesn't really need to do anything with the ladies got at the moment. think —— the lead he's got at the moment. he showed he still got lots of support when he done at the hustings at the weekend and it isjeremy hunt two has to make up the numbers. he knows he's not the favourite so he's got to get on the front foot and say
3:06 pm
something to try and etch away at boris johnson's something to try and etch away at borisjohnson's lead. something to try and etch away at boris johnson's lead. i something to try and etch away at borisjohnson's lead. i don't think borisjohnson's lead. i don't think boris johnson's team are borisjohnson's lead. i don't think borisjohnson's team are suddenly panicking and thinking they better do the tv debates because they are getting criticism, jeremy hunt's tea m getting criticism, jeremy hunt's team will keep doing it because they think it's one of the potential soft spot borisjohnson think it's one of the potential soft spot boris johnson has. that could always backfire, negativity is what people don't want that the moment, it seems. at the heart of this is the debate within the conservative party, not for you and i orfour people within the conservative party, not for you and i or four people around the country, it is for conservative members and one of the question jeremy hunt has to keep asking himself and keep balancing over the next four weeks or so is it when he goes for boris johnson's soft spots, beat that his reluctance to take pa rt beat that his reluctance to take part in debates, his brexit strategy, be it his private life, if he does that, some conservatives will look at it as a blue on blue,
3:07 pm
as conservatives attacking conservatives and will be highly relu cta nt to conservatives and will be highly reluctant to reward it because it would lead to more and more of that criticism of other members of the party. you heard that a lot when other candidates were in the race, tory mps very worried it could turn into mudslinging and there are many who still want to avoid that. thank you very much. the former deputy prime minister and labour peer lord prescott has been admitted to hospital after suffering a stroke. his family announced that the 81—year—old was taken ill on friday. they praised staff at hull royal infirmary and asked for privacy to allow him "time and space to make a full recovery". the former labour home secretary alan johnson has been to visit lord prescott. he's over the worst and he's talking, and he is insistently talking about the great care he is getting at hull royal infirmary. and now it's about the after—care because, anyone who has had
3:08 pm
a stroke, it's what comes afterwards that is as important as what happens on the day of the stroke itself. so he had the stroke on friday, he is now at the other side of that, and we just want to make sure he gets a full recovery. facebook‘s head of global affairs, sir nick clegg, has told the bbc that the social media platform wants new industry rules and regulations. speaking to the today programme, sir nick said he wants to create an "oversight board", with the power to make independent rulings on whether questionable content should be removed from the site. and he said there was no evidence that facebook affected the result of the eu referendum. the prosecution in the gross negligence manslaughter case of the hillsborough match commander david duckenfield is applying for a retrial in a hearing at preston crown court today. former chief supt duckenfield, who is now 7a, had denied the gross negligence manslaughter of 95 liverpool fans in the 1989 disaster. his defence team are fighting the application. the judge, sir peter 0penshaw, has said that a decision is expected tomorrow.
3:09 pm
the us is expected to announce more sanctions against iran later today, as tensions continue to rise between the two countries. the us secretary of state mike pompeo has arrived in saudi arabia for talks on forming what he described as a "global coalition" against iran. last week, donald trump said he had called off a planned retaliatory air strike after iran shot down an american drone near the strait of hormuz. joining me now from washington is our state department correspondent, barbara plett usher. 0ne one thing that is emerging as a donald trump went solo on this, he does not seem to have spoken to his allies before launching or not logic that strike. the decision—making process was quite confusing last week. we knew there were deliberations throughout thursday, the day the decision was made at the white house. he was talking to his advisers and two
3:10 pm
congresspeople as well, lawmakers came to the white house. he has a fairly extensive discussion in washington but perhaps not with his allies. the us has been quite isolated with its approach to iran, it pulled out of the nuclear deal and the uk and europe, china and russia all thought it was a mistake and blame him to some extent for the tensions we are seeing in the gulf now. at the moment it is iran versus the united states. 0ne now. at the moment it is iran versus the united states. one of the reasons the secretary of state is in the gulf as there are regional allies that are supporting them in this policy, saudi arabia and the uae who are two of iran's regional rivals but beyond that its not become the global coalition at the us would like to see. the issue of whether to decide on strikes or not was very much a washington one. is there any acknowledgements there that this was all sparked because it was america that pulled out of the
3:11 pm
deal? in the deliberations in the white house that's not really articulated, there's lots of criticism in washington from diplomats, congresspeople, i've heard lots of them being angry last week, especially democrats, former policy —— foreign policy experts say it was not perfect, the deal, but at least it limited iran's nuclear programme but now the americans have pulled out and, crucially, but now the americans have pulled outand, crucially, reimposed sanctions in the harsh way, what would you expect? the administration says this is going to work and if you cripple the economy you bring iran to its knees and it will be forced to come to the negotiating table and reorganise and do another deal that is tougher, not only on its nuclear programme but on other things. the other option is it will not do that and become more aggressive and those against this policy set that's what's happening. every day to discuss on increases
3:12 pm
the risk of a war by accident. —— every day at this goes on. exactly, because you have a volatile situation and the iranians feel very much they've been pushed their backs against the wall, as the economy stag nate against the wall, as the economy stagnate around them, and because the americans and increased military assets in the region, given recent attacks, there is a concern this is attacks, there is a concern this is a recipe for some kind of conflict, evenif a recipe for some kind of conflict, even if neither side wants one, which is of course the chance to increase because they are not talking directly to each other so if there is a misunderstanding they do not have a way to call it off. great to talk to you. thank you very much. the inquest into the deaths of those killed in the london bridge attack in 2017 has been hearing from sajeel shahid who ran the fitness centre where one of the attackers, khuram butt, trained. he was previously accused of running terrorism training camps in pakistan, but today he strenuously denied any
3:13 pm
connection with the attackers. sarah walton has been at the old bailey. sarah walton is at the old bailey now. what else has the court been hearing? as you said, we heard from sajeel shahid, who owned a gym in east london that was used by the three london bridge attackers, they met up there and worked out together. mr shahid also set up a religious school in east london where one of the attackers, khuram butt, volunteered to teach the koran. the court heard mr shahid has in the past been accused of running terrorist training camps in pakistan, particularly a camp where one of the 2005 london bombers received explosive trainings. when asked about those allegations, mr shahid denied them and when asked about siddique, he said he never met him. he was also asked about his
3:14 pm
relationship with khuram butt. he said he was not aware of khuram butt‘s extremist views and he personally had no extremist views and he was outraged by the attacks on london bridge and borough market. mr shahid was also asked about telephone calls and hundreds of text m essa 9 es telephone calls and hundreds of text messages between his mobile phone and the mobile phone of khuram butt in the months running up to the attack. mr shahid said they were simply to do with gym business. until today at mr shahid has refused to co—operate with the investigation into the london bridge attacks. before he left the stand he was askedif before he left the stand he was asked if he would now allow police to examine his mobile phone. mr shahid said he would have to check with his lawyer but he would not delete any material on that mobile phone. we also began to evidence from khuram butt‘s sister, who
3:15 pm
described him as a very ordinary boy growing up, outgoing, into sports and health and fitness and things began to change in around 2012 point he became more religious and started encouraging her to cover her head and said she should behave as a good islamic mother. she described that asa islamic mother. she described that as a dramatic change in his behaviour in those years around 2012. this inquest it into the deaths of the eight people killed on the london bridge attacks and borough market in 2017, now in the eighth week of evidence here, that is due to continue this afternoon and tomorrow. you're watching afternoon live, these are our headlines: in the race for the tory leadership, jeremy hunt tells rival borisjohnson ‘not to be a coward' — and debate with him on tv this week. lord prescott — the former labour deputy prime minister — is in hospital after suffering a stroke. facebook is in favour of an ‘oversight board‘ to regulate the platform‘s content,
3:16 pm
says its head of global affairs sir nick clegg. in sport, newcastle united manager rafa benitez is to leave the club at the end of the month after failing to agree a new contract with the chinese super lead believed to be his next destination. jason roy will miss the world cup game with australia tomorrow but he is making encouraging progress from a hamstring injury and is likely to be in contention to face india at the weekend. andy murray says he will not rush his return to single tennis despite winning a title on his comeback, he and feliciano lopez won the doubles crown at queens five months after murray had hip surgery. i will have more on thatjust after 3:30pm. as the world looks to cut carbon dioxide emissions and attempt to reduce the impact of climate change, scientists are meeting
3:17 pm
in germany to explore how to put carbon dioxide to use — including for commercial gain. until recently it was assumed emissions from industry would have to be buried to prevent them escaping into the atmosphere, but inventors are now finding ways to use c02 as a valuable raw material. some firms say they are already making a profit by turning c02 into fertilisers and bubbles forfizzy drinks. 0ur environment analyst roger harrabin has more. how can we store c02? well, let‘s start in the north of england, where they‘re making building blocks with c02. yes, building blocks. it sounds unlikely, but they mix the c02 with ash from a household waste incinerator. making the blocks involves an awesome chemical process. watch this. that is incinerator ash mixed with water. this is carbon dioxide. here we go. shake it all about.
3:18 pm
the c02 has been completely absorbed and is turned into a solid. here‘s the chemistry on an industrial scale, two wastes making a useful product. here, we‘re taking carbon dioxide, we‘re treating the waste and making a limestone and there are other companies that are doing all manner of different things with carbon dioxide. in suffolk, these mounds of horse manure are being turned into c02 bubbles for drinks. the horse poo and straw mix comes here to these gigantic tanks. they‘re like large stomachs full of bacteria that gobble up the mix and produce two streams of gas, one of them is methane. that goes to heat peoples‘ homes and help cook peoples‘ dinners. the other stream of gas is carbon dioxide, pure carbon dioxide, and they‘re selling that. bizarrely, it‘s being bought by pubs to put the fizz into lager and lemonade. you can‘t taste it, of course. near swindon, they‘re making
3:19 pm
fertiliser with c02. the first ingredient is this fibrous stuff, it‘s left over after you‘ve put cow dung into a biogas digester, like the one we just saw. this stuff is low in nutrients, little use for crop fertiliser, so the firm adds a liquid waste from the fertiliser industry, along with nutrients and, crucially, c02. here‘s what you get — little pellets of top—class fertiliser. what‘s most satisfying for us is to take a material like carbon dioxide, which is fundamentally useless, as far as most people are concerned, and positively harmful, and then transform that into something that is beneficial. these technologies won‘t solve climate change but they will help, a bit. roger harrabin, bbc news. this month marks the 80th anniversary of the reformation of the women‘s land army — the british civilian organisation created in the early 20th century to allow women to work
3:20 pm
in agriculture when men went away to war. the society for the protection of animals abroad is calling for people to honour those women alongside the half—a—million working horses that supported them on british farms. together, they played a vital role in feeding britain during the first and second world war. joining me now to talk more on this is geoffrey dennis, the chief executive of the society for the protection of animals abroad. firstly, what strikes me, you are an animal charity what you want us to celebrate the work of women. it was the combination of women working with animals. to give you the numbers, before the war started, 60% of britain‘s food was imported, mostly by boat and then the boat started being destroyed, 2 million tonnes of shipping was destroyed in total. by 19a0 370% of britain‘s food were supplied by the women‘s land army and the working animals, mostly horses working with them.
3:21 pm
that‘s the sort of story most people don‘t know. everybody remembers the warand men and boys don‘t know. everybody remembers the war and men and boys going to fight overseas, they don‘t appreciate the work they women did in the uk. mac great aunt it was in the women‘s land army. as you say, theyjust did it, didn‘t they? lots of them came from towns and cities, so they had never worked in the rural areas and they did an amazing job. it‘s the 80th anniversary, as you say, and we felt, as an animal charity, because lots of animals were involved, it ought to be celebrated. my son is 21 yea rs old ought to be celebrated. my son is 21 years old and he has no idea of the stories like this. the relevance for you is this is still going on around the world, people are working with animals. we are working in 26 countries around the world and we offer free veterinary treatment, we train local vets so we can begin to pull out of those countries and get local people to run it. almost as importantly as
3:22 pm
anything else, we train owners on how to better look after the animals. i‘m a great believer in the vast majority of the population of the world are not deliberately cruel to animals, theyjust don‘t understand. 0f to animals, theyjust don‘t understand. of course, some people are cruel but the vast majority don‘t understand they are using the wrong rope system or harness or whatever. we educate children and make them respect animals from an early age, who then felt their pa rents early age, who then felt their parents this is how you look after animals, don‘t hit them, they don‘t go any faster. finally, we are doing lots of work on emergencies. there was a very serious cyclone in india recently, my old organisation, the red cross, work on helping people, we help the animals and save the lives of thousands of animals. in the long term, the people at the red cross save need to rely on those animals for their livelihood. 0ne animals for their livelihood. one of the points about the first and second world war as we have to go back and use all technologies and
3:23 pm
also animals. we end up relying on them. absolutely. apparently, at the beginning of the second world war many of the older male farmers said these women, will they really be able to help? at the end of the war they said, wow, fantastic stuff. 70% of britain‘s food were supplied fight the women‘s land army and the animals involved. should there be a tribute, there is a tribute to animals in war, have we paid enough tribute to these ladies? probably not. i have a 21—year—old son who had no idea until this weekend when i told them the story what it was all about. the vast majority of people don‘t recognise it. but it could have changed the war, if we did not have these people supplying food into this country, it could have changed the war. amazing stuff. what i would anticipate is perhaps a people want to learn more
3:24 pm
about this and about the women‘s land army and about my charity, please go to our website. well done. sneaky, but well done. thank you very much. thank you very much indeed. the uk‘s first gambling addiction clinic for children and young adults will open in london in september. it‘s funded by nhs england and aims to support people aged 13 to 25. an estimated a50,000 children regularly bet, either with friends, on fruit machines, or online. liz ritchie‘s sonjack took his own life when he was 2a after struggling with gambling addiction. she is co—founder of a charity to support bereaved families. shejoins me now. thank you for your time. it goes without saying how difficult this is to talk about, but we probably need to know a bit about the jack and how it was he was, how
3:25 pm
he got into such a difficult situation without those around him knowing. we did now, we knew after about a year after he started gambling. he started by going into a bookmakers with a group of friends, large group of friends while at school and gambling in their lunch hour with their lunch money. we found out after about one year because he told us. after about one year because he told us. we had no knowledge this was such a serious addiction. it is a heroine level addiction. we certainly did not know it could be potentially fatal, this addiction is correlated with a very high level of suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts and, unfortunately, completed suicides and unfortunately jack was one of them. it seems remarkable we are only talking about the setting up of this now. yes, it‘s very unfortunate. but it‘s taken a yes, it‘s very unfortunate. but it‘s takena group yes, it‘s very unfortunate. but it‘s taken a group of families to
3:26 pm
correlate the statistics across the world about the suicide and completed suicides but what happened afterjack died we met up with other families and we were stunned by the complacency we found in the organisations that were supposed to help, and we set up gambling with lives to let other parents know because if we felt if somebody letters now he would be alive today. in discussions with jack, those who spoke to him about it, was he aware of the difficulties he was getting into? i think he knew he was addicted but none of us knew the severity of the addiction or it could be fatal. he thought it was a bit of fun. we thought it was a bit of fun. we thought he would just being a 17—year—old initially. there is no warnings on the product, there is no warnings on the product, there is no warnings on the games in the bookmakers, there is no warnings
3:27 pm
online that, actually, this can cause mental health problems, it can be such a severe addiction for a lot of people. you have to rememberfor jack‘s age group, four young men who are gambling on multiple platforms online, 70% of them are either addicted or at risk of addiction. i‘m just wondering what goes through your mind, you look through photographs, i‘ve seen the video of you and jack dancing in the kitchen, i‘m wondering what you must feel about the gambling companies and their role in trying to help with this. well, to be honest, i try not to think about them. i don‘t want to be consumed with anger, although that‘s quite difficult. we miss him every day, every minute of every day got to be honest, but we put our energy into meeting other families to be honest, but we put our energy into meeting otherfamilies and into setting up our charity. and into
3:28 pm
stopping other people dying. there is between 250 and 650 deaths were suicides due to gambling addiction every year. there is one every day. therefore, we need to stop people dying. anybody watching now, hindsight is a wonderful thing and you must wish to put the clock back every day, but what do you look for, what should pa rents, what do you look for, what should parents, family, what should they look for, the danger signs? obviously, money difficulties, sudden anger, i think. i think lots of confidence, jack lost his way and his confidence but, as i say, he told us, we all knew. i think lots of people know and lots of families now but up until now there has just been no help and, really, most of all, people need to know it can lead to death. the young men need to
3:29 pm
know. would jack have done what he did if he knew that? i doubt it. three days before he died he said this insult my intelligence. so i don‘t think he would have. there are certain the five big companies making lots of money off this type of gambling, if one of their bosses is watching, what is their bosses is watching, what is the message? i think you have to face up to what‘s going on. i understand you may not want to i‘m sure you‘ve got children of your own but the reality is your products cause addiction. we know generally 30% of profits come from addicts, online it is closer to 60%. so you have to face up to the fa ct 60%. so you have to face up to the fact you are grooming and generating the next generation of addicts to replace the ones you already used up. ido up. i do these interviews a lot and i know, we ought to have a quick word about jack because, you know, we ought to have a quick word aboutjack because, you know, your
3:30 pm
smile says it all but we tend to forget because of the nature of the story but the word about jack. imean, he story but the word about jack. i mean, he was very popular, fun loving, he was a joy to be with. obviously, he was a normal boy and he could be very grumpy and very annoying! yes, he was a very socially successful and happy, clever boy. and, indeed, all the boys from gambling with lives wire. there is a strange similarity, they we re there is a strange similarity, they were all very similar. —— they all were. great to talk to you and our thoughts are with you. if you are affected by the story bbc action line is available to you. for help on any of the issues that may have affected you as a result of the story. let‘s have a look at the weather, and chris fawkes is here. it‘s the
3:31 pm
calm before the storm, but it is a beautiful calm. we are looking at the heat building across europe and these are the temperature record at the moment for june. 0ne temperature record at the moment for june. one to pick out, switzerland, 37 celsius, as hot as the country has ever been. there is a red warning out for switzerland tomorrow as temperatures could reach 39 celsius, which would smash the record. there are a number of these temperature records under threat. the reason is all to do with the jet stream. we‘ve got very undulating pattern, and a meagre block with low pressure centres , pattern, and a meagre block with low pressure centres, a high pressure near greenland and a low pressure to the south—west of the uk. that dragging some very warm and humid airfrom north africa dragging some very warm and humid air from north africa and dragging some very warm and humid airfrom north africa and moving it into europe. as far as temperatures 90, into europe. as far as temperatures go, we are seeing temperatures building. it‘s very hot, these
3:32 pm
heatwaves can prove to be deadly. in 2003 the heatwave, it‘s not that killed 20,000 people. when you speak of at a0 celsius in paris, some people willjust not be able to deal with it. it is the young and the elderly and vulnerable but are most risk, those with underlying health conditions. the authorities are putting in place some setting up cool rooms, air—conditioned rooms that are open to the public so where they can cool down. the advice is to have more showers to keep your body cooler, keep the curtains shut. you better tell us what is in store for us. as europe sizzles and temperatures reaching a2, a3 celsius across the south of europe plot may be aa towards the end of the week in northern spain, all that heat is helping to build some really big thunderstorms. that‘s going on at the moment, this line of clouds on
3:33 pm
the moment, this line of clouds on the satellite picture extending from western france, cloudy for most in the uk and that essentially is a weather system feeding off that heat in europe where temperatures are well into the 30s and that triggering thunderstorms. that‘s what we‘ve got coming our way. particularly overnight tonight. at the moment we have storms into north—east england, still some storm activity and heavy rain in scotland. not so humid for northern areas but feeling very oppressive towards the south—east. we are going to see big storms arriving over the coming hours, particularly into the night time in central southern england, south—east england, midlands and east anglia. overnight, we could see up east anglia. overnight, we could see up to 30 millimetres of rain in one hour. enough to cause flash flooding. some areas could have up to 50 millimetres or more in several
3:34 pm
hours. the heaviness of the rain and the fact the ground is saturated from that wet spell in the middle of the month, just increasing the risk ofa the month, just increasing the risk of a localised flash flooding. the amount of rain will vary from place to place quite a lot. tuesday, our band of thundery rain pushing northwards, uncertainty over its exact position. in the south, after starting cloudy it brightens up and we could see further thundering downpours in the afternoon as temperatures surge. not that one everywhere else, further north, 17 for hull, 19 in edinburgh. for wednesday, england and wales has a cloudy day, north—easterly breeze, the odd shower across the south although many staying dry. feeling fresher. some sunshine across the north of the uk and eastern scotland favoured place for some of that, temperatures in edinburgh could reach 2a celsius but for many it will be cooler on wednesday. later
3:35 pm
in the week, as our high—pressure moves into the north sea we bring in the heat from europe and so temperatures for some will push into the high 20s, perhapsjust temperatures for some will push into the high 20s, perhaps just about into the low 30s. very warm and humid, muddy nights to follow making it quite uncomfortable to sleep for some, turning quite breezy. things are looking to turn fresher and cooler as we head into sunday. that‘s the latest weather.
3:36 pm
this is bbc news — our latest headlines. the tory leadership gets personal asjeremy hunt tells borisjohnson to "man up" and face him in a tv debate this week. john prescott — the former labour deputy prime minister — is in hospital after suffering a stroke. facebook is in favour of an "oversight board" to regulate the platform‘s content, says its head of global affairs sir nick clegg. the uk‘s first gambling addiction clinic for young people is to be opened by nhs england — it‘s thought more than 50,000 children have a problem. let‘s cross over to the house of commons now, where the prime minister, theresa may, is giving a statement on the european council meeting. she‘s going to be updating the house of on that. this is the scene in the house of commons. the announcement was scheduled for half past three.
3:37 pm
so it is running late, but we will return to the house of commons when that gets under way. that is a warning for you and also a warning for ben, who will bring us the sports news. but there is a possibility we will have to pull out. let‘s talk about this managerial announcement that has shocked the north—east. he‘s been one of the fans‘ most popular managers, but rafa benitez‘s time at newcastle is over. he hadn‘t signed a new contract for next season anyway and the two parties haven‘t agreed a new deal. it‘s been tough for him at st james‘s park — taking the club up from the championship and keeping them in the premier league but not having lots of money to spend. the club‘s owner mike ashley has been trying to sell the club so those difficulties off the field haven‘t made his life easy and despite being well liked by supporters after more challenging times under the likes of alan pardew and steve maclaren — it wasn‘t enough to keep him in the north east. the club have thanked him and says it‘ll now start to process for a successor. former swansea and birmingham boss garry monk and manchester city assistant mikel arteta are among
3:38 pm
the favourites to replace benitez. as for the spaniard — well, he‘s received an offer of £12 million to manage in china — and that might be enough to lure him away from europe. £12 million a week? a year. about a week. let's talk about cricket. later this summer it‘s the ashes, but before that, england and australia meet in the cricket world cup tomorrow — there might not be such a warm welcome for two of australia‘s players? david warner and steve smith are the two potential targets for some playful england fans at lord‘s tomorrow. they were banned last year for their role in sandpapergate — when a team—mate of theirs used sandpaper to rough up the ball against south africa. they‘ve not played against england since — until tomorrow. so what sort of a reception might they get? so far in this tournament they‘ve played more the part of pantomime villains than anything too sinister and many have discouraged any booing of them.
3:39 pm
england‘s captain eoin morgan has today said it‘s not his place to tell the crowd how they should be feeling. you don't know how sports fans are going to react. i think they are entitled to have their own view. just because punishment was handed out and two guys served their punishment, doesn't mean they are going to be accepted back into the cricket community straightaway with open arms. it'll take time. i read something the other day that they haven't lost back—to—back odi is in england for quite some time. if you look at their training, they tend to bounce back and get ultra—aggressive as well so we are ready for that, we expect them to come out ultra hard and take the game on. which has been one of their main traits over the last couple of years in particular. so, yeah, we will focus more about what we are doing well and what we can improve
3:40 pm
in ourgame. meanwhile, some team news from england concerning jason roy. scans on a torn hamstring have shown an improvement but he only had a gentle work—out — james vince will continue to open the batting, with roy now hoping to be back for the game against india at edgbaston on sunday. the african football confederation says it will investigate the conduct of cameroon — following their ill—tempered exit at the women‘s world cup to england. at one stage it looked as though they wouldn‘t play after a couple of video assistant referee decisions went against them. caf says the match reflected badly not only on african women‘s football but african football on the whole. they‘ll now address the issue at the appropriate level of governance. fifa are also looking into it. there is context to this story. this cameroon team are one of the most poorly funded women's football team on the whole continent, and i think they went into the whole tournament feeling as though it was us against the world, and to have these
3:41 pm
decisions go against them, i think they felt it may be was another example of that. ashleigh barty, fresh from her success at the french open and the birmingham classic yesterday, is starting life as the new world number one — by not playing. she‘s pulled out of the tennis at eastbourne as she manages an ongoing arm injury. we‘ve got live coverage from the south coast right now on bbc two and bbc sport website. karolina pliskova is in action, she has taken the first game of the match. finally, simon liked this one earlier so we thought we‘d show it to you again. this is a swamp football competition in a russian forest around 60 kilometres from st petersburg. halves in this clearly exhausting form of football last 13 minutes. the winning team were victorious in the final by a goal to nil, meaning they will represent russia at the next world cup in finland.
3:42 pm
judging by the weather forecast, there‘s some bits of england that might look a bit like that tomrrow! —— tomorrow. -- tomorrow. let's go to the house of commons, theresa may is about to update the commons on the european council of —— the european council meeting. we wish him a full and speedy recovery for stop mr speaker, last week‘s european council focused on climate change, disinformation and hybrid threats, external relations and the eu‘s top jobs. the uk has always been clear we will participate fully and constructively in all eu discussions for as long as we are a member state. and that we will seek to continue our cooperation on issues of mutual interest to our future relationship after we have left. that was the spirit in which i approached this council. earlier this month, the uk became the first major economy in the world to commit to ending its contribution to global warning by
3:43 pm
2050 stop i am pleased the regulations to amend the 2008 climate change act, which are being debated in the chamber later today, have received widespread support from across this house. but ultimately we will only protect our planet if we are able to forge the widest possible global agreements. that means other countries need to follow our lead and increase their ambitions as well. at this council, the uk helped to lead the way, advocating for our european partners to follow suit and committing to a net zero target by 2050. while a full eu wide consensus wasn‘t reached, a large majority of member states agreed that climate neutrality must be achieved by 2050 andi neutrality must be achieved by 2050 and i hope we can build on this in the months ahead. in the margins of the months ahead. in the margins of the council i also met prime minister contrary and discussed the ukip isa minister contrary and discussed the ukip is a bid to host the un climate summit next year in partnership with italy. —— i‘m at the perimeter of italy. —— i‘m at the perimeter of italy. this will put the uk at the
3:44 pm
heart of driving global efforts to tackle the climate emergency and leave a better world for our children. turning to disinformation and hybrid threats, we agreed to continue working together to raise awareness, increase our preparedness and strengthen the resilience of our democracies. i welcome the development of a new framework for targeted sanctions to respond to hybrid threats. this sends a clear message that the uk and its eu partners are willing and able to impose a cost for irresponsible behaviour in cyberspace. we must also make more progress in helping to ensure the internet is a safe place for all our citizens. that is why we are legislating in the uk to create a legal duty of care and internet companies to keep users safe from harm. this will be backed up safe from harm. this will be backed up by safe from harm. this will be backed up by an independent regulator with the power to enforce its decisions. we are the first country to put forward such a comprehensive approach but it isn‘t enough to act alone. so building on the christchurch call to action summit, the uk will continue to help drive
3:45 pm
the uk will continue to help drive the broadest possible global action against online harms, including at the t20 in japan against online harms, including at the t20 injapan later this week. in the t20 injapan later this week. in the discussion on external relations, the council expressed its concern over russian‘s issuing of passports in regions of ukraine and reiterated its call for russia to release the ukrainian sailors and vessels captured in november last year. russia has consistently —— consistently failed to deliver its commitments under the minsk agreements and continues its destabilising activity so this is —— so destabilising activity so this is —— so the council agreed a six month rollover of tier three sanctions which include restrictions on russia‘s access to eu capital markets and arms embargo and restricting cooperation with russia‘s energy sector. in marking the fifth anniversary of the downing of flight mh17, we also welcomed the announcement from the netherlands that criminal charges are being brought against four individuals and
3:46 pm
offered our continued support in bringing those responsible to justice. the council also expressed serious concerns over turkey‘s drilling activities in the eastern mediterranean. the uk has made it clear to turkey that drilling in this area must stop and our priority must be to see the situation d escalated. in the margins of the council i also raise the issue of iran. we are calling on iran to urgently escalate tensions and our priority remains finding a diplomatic solution to the current situation in the region. a substantial part of the council focused on what are known as the eu's focused on what are known as the eu‘s topjobs, the focused on what are known as the eu‘s top jobs, the appointments of the next presidents of the eu institutions and the eu plasma high representative. this is primarily a matter for the 27 remaining representative. this is primarily a matterfor the 27 remaining member states so i have been clear the uk will engage constructively and will not stand in the way of a consensus among the other member states. but it is also in our national interests that there was appointed are constructive partners for the uk as well as successful leaders of the
3:47 pm
eu's well as successful leaders of the eu‘s institutions. the uk supports this —— the approach to create a package of candidates across the top jobs reflecting the diversity of the european union. as there was no consensus on candidates at this meeting the council agreed to meet again after the 620, as well as holding further discussions with european parliament. so, while i had originally anticipated this would be my final european council as prime minister, i will in fact have one more. finally, mr speaker, president tusk and presidentjuncker updated the remaining 27 member state on brexit. the scheduled update was pa rt brexit. the scheduled update was part of the agreement i reached in april to extend the article 50 deadline for the departure to the 3ist deadline for the departure to the 31st of october. the council repeated his desire to avoid a disorderly brexit and committed to work constructively with my successor and i commend this statement to the house. thank you
3:48 pm
very much, mr speaker. i understand it is ten years since you assumed the chair of the house this week. could i just say, the chair of the house this week. could ijust say, congratulations on the first ten years... and thank you for being such a popular speaker and taking the role of parliament in a very meaningful way out of the public, particularly the school all over the country. —— out to the public. i also think the prime minister for the public. i also think the prime ministerfor the very public. i also think the prime minister for the very kind words she set aboutjohn minister for the very kind words she set about john prescott. minister for the very kind words she set aboutjohn prescott. we all wish him the very best. i can‘t wait to see him back in full activity with that booming voice from loudspeakers with me all over the country, exciting people in the cause of labour, which is whatjohn does so well. i would like to thank the prime ministerfor an well. i would like to thank the prime minister for an advance copy of her statement. last week, we came within minutes of the usa launching a military attack on iran. britain
3:49 pm
and other european nations must play and other european nations must play a role in defusing, not raising tensions and it needs to start with the restoration of support for the iran nuclear deal. we note there will be continuing eu morocco trade discussions. i hope the united kingdom government will recognise there is an ongoing territorial dispute over the western sahara and that those issues will be borne in mind during those negotiations. i would also like to echo the call by the european union for turkey to cease illegal trio —— frank drilling in the eastern mediterranean and i welcome what the council said on that. can i also welcomed the eu council‘s discussion of climate change. it emphasises how important it is to continue to work with progressive forces on tackling the climate emergency which was indeed declared by this house on the 1st of may. i welcome the eu plasma continued commitments to the paris climate change agreement and to deliver a practical plan of action to meet those obligations and i
3:50 pm
welcome that it will be jointly hosted by britain and italy and some of the events will be held here in london. yesterday marked three years since the eu referendum. three wasted yea rs since the eu referendum. three wasted years in which the government‘s deal has been rejected three times. we have endured three separate brexit secretaries and will soon separate brexit secretaries and will soon have our third post—brexit prime minister. three years of chaos, infighting and incompetence. for too long, the prime minister allowed herself to be held to ransom by the wild extremes in her party, rather than trying to find a sensible majority across the house. some of the wilder extremes have absented themselves today but no doubt they are making their views heard somewhere else. by the time the per minister did finally reach out, it was a bit too late. —— prime minister. she was not able to deliver any meaningful compromise or
3:51 pm
change. so, does the prime minister now regret that instead of warding off its disastrous implications, she continued to legitimise the idea of no—deal? the two tory leadership candidates are still saying that if they can‘t renegotiate the backstop, which the eu leaders said it was not possible last week, then they would pursue a no—deal exit. will the prime minister tell us whether she believes with a no—deal should be on the table as a viable option, and in her view, what would be worse, crashing out with no deal in october, or putting the issue back to the people for a final say? given the shambolic. .. heckling mr speaker, it is normalfor the
3:52 pm
leader of the opposition to ask questions of the prime minister, and thatis questions of the prime minister, and that is exactly what i‘m doing at the present time. mr speaker, given the shambolic no—deal preparations so far, which we re no—deal preparations so far, which were paused in the spring, can the minister confirm that the government will not be ready to crash out in 0ctober? neither of the tory leadership candidates have a credible plan. 0ne even claims... 0ne even claims we can crash out on wto terms and still trade without tariffs. interesting! the governor of the bank of england was clear when he said, and i quote, not having an agreement with the eu means that there are tariffs, because the europeans would have to apply the same rules to us as they apply the same rules to us as they apply to everyone else. could the prime minister confirm the bank of
3:53 pm
england‘s governor‘s analysis is correct on no—deal? the former foreign secretary also told us that under his no—deal plan, he could, i quote, solve the problem of free movement of goods in the context of the free trade agreement, and will negotiate in the implementation period. mr speaker, can the prime minister confirm that if there is no deal, there will not be an implementation of period? it is deeply worrying that those who seek to lead this country seem to have no grip on reality. the prime minister... the prime minister, mr speaker, said the council reiterated its wish to avoid a disorderly brexit. i‘m not sure they will have been reassured by the statements of her potential successors. labour put
3:54 pm
forward a plan that could bring the country back together, but the prime minister refused to compromise. whoever the next prime minister is, they will barely hold the support of this house, so they certainly have no mandate to force a disastrous ha rd no mandate to force a disastrous hard right brexit on this country. and i'd hard right brexit on this country. and i‘d make it very clear, mr speaker, labour will work across this house to block no—deal. but whatever plan the new tory leader comes up whatever plan the new tory leader comes up with, after three long yea rs of comes up with, after three long years of failure, they should have the confidence to go back to the people and let them decide the future of this country. thank you, mr speaker. first of all, it is absolutely right we recognise the fact that it is the tenth anniversary of your election to the chair of speaker. i have to say, it
3:55 pm
doesn‘t seem like ten years at all. laughter cani can i commend, can i correct the leader of the opposition and one... surely, because the leader of the opposition made the point he thinks reality and facts are important. he says we had actually got the climate summit going to the uk, in fact we are making ajoint summit going to the uk, in fact we are making a joint bid with italy, there are still others bidding for it so we are still working hard and i was encouraging those around the eu council table to support the bid we have put forward. i‘m grateful the leader of the opposition from a sedentary position says the opposition support that bed and i‘m grateful for that, i opposition support that bed and i‘m gratefulfor that, i think opposition support that bed and i‘m grateful for that, i think it will be supported across the whole house. i have to say, mr speaker, in fact, the european union and european council meeting i attended did not
3:56 pm
discuss brexit, no—deal or the views of the leadership candidates in the conservative party‘s leadership election, which is what the leader of the opposition focused the majority of his comments and questions on. so i am supposed to be talking about what happened at the eu council but i am in a generous mood... soi eu council but i am in a generous mood... so i will respond to a small number of the points the right honourable gentleman made. he talked about the talks we had to try to find a compromise and a majority across this house, we did indeed enter those talks, both sides entered the talks in a constructive spirit. i would entered the talks in a constructive spirit. iwould remind him it was entered the talks in a constructive spirit. i would remind him it was he who actually terminated those talks. he has talked about the position in relation to no—deal. no—deal is the default option, legally, that remains on the table on the 31st of 0ctober if a deal is not agreed. the
3:57 pm
government rightly is continuing preparations for no—deal. he asks about my view on no—deal, i wanted to leave the european union on the 29th of march with a deal. the right honourable gentleman with his colleagues, if they had voted with the government, we would already be out. and just to reiterate that point and remind him, out. and just to reiterate that pointand remind him, i have done everything to avoid a new deal brexit by voting for a deal three times this year. he has done everything to increase the chance of no—deal by voting against a deal every time. rejecting any brexit deal risks the worst outcome of no—deal brexit. those are not my words, but the words of his own labour members of parliament. finally, the leader of the opposition talked about people on this side being divorced from reality. i have to say, the person who is divorced from reality in this house is the leader of the
3:58 pm
opposition, who thinks the economic model we should follow is venezuela. so, we will pull away from the house of commons. a discussion between theresa may and jeremy corbyn. laughs at the expense, perhaps, of the speaker, who has been serving for ten years, and theresa may joking it didn‘t feel like ten yea rs, joking it didn‘t feel like ten years, not expanding its mac —— might not expanding. we will have reaction to that statement later on. but now let‘s have a look at the weather. the atmosphere fully charged, we are likely to see some thunderstorms coming up as we go through this evening and overnight, fixing parts of england. at the moment, still some rain across northern scotland, a few showers elsewhere, thundery at times. the main focus of attention is beginning to shift to
3:59 pm
thunderstorms that are already developing across western areas of france, because they are going to be pushing northwards this evening and overnight. it‘s across these central and eastern areas of england we are most at risk of seeing those torrential downpours. within this zone, we could see a lot of rainfall, 30 millimetres in the space of an hour. 0ver rainfall, 30 millimetres in the space of an hour. over a few hours, as much as a month‘s worth. the areas most at risk, central and southern ingle, the midlands, east anglia, also likely to be a lot of thunder and lightning. further north, out pics of rain will tend to ease away from northern scotland. not quite as muggy here, temperatures 11 or 12 overnight. that‘s the latest weather.
4:00 pm
hello, you‘re watching afternoon live. i‘m simon mccoy. today at four: the tory leadership gets personal asjeremy hunt tells borisjohnson to "man up" and face him in a tv debate this week. the conservative party will start to feel cheated of having a proper leadership campaign if the front runner is not prepared to subject himself to the scrutiny of tv debates and the scrutiny of media interviews. lord prescott — the former labour deputy prime minister — is in hospital after suffering a stroke. a man who ran the fitness centre where khuram butt, one of the london bridge attackers, trained, gives evidence in court about his knowledge of the attackers. the uk‘s first gambling addiction clinic for young people is to be opened by nhs england — it‘s thought more than 50,000 children have a problem. coming up on afternoon
4:01 pm
live all the sport... rafa benitez is to leave newcastle united at the end of the month. he had been out of contract and was expected to leave despite pleas from fa ns to expected to leave despite pleas from fans to stay. the club say they work ha rd to fans to stay. the club say they work hard to agree a deal but it was not possible to reach an agreement. and looking at the weather, it‘s a lively forecast from chris fawkes. lots of cloud at the moment. starting to feel humid and over the next few hours through the night time we will see heavy and thundery downpours, torrential in places and there could be some localised flooding. i will look at where those storms are likely to hit later on. also coming up — scientists meet to discuss how we can put carbon dioxide to use as the world looks to cut emissions.
4:02 pm
hello, everyone. this is afternoon live. the tory leadership race has turned more personal — withjeremy hunt urging rival borisjohnson not to be "a coward" about facing public scrutiny. he said that mrjohnson should "man up" and debate with him on tv — before most conservative members vote. it comes as sky news announced it was cancelling a planned debate for tomorrow because mr johnson had declined to take part. meanwhile, mrjohnson has been talking about policies — warning that the uk will face a "democratic explosion" if it does not leave the eu by 31st october. 0ur political correspondent nick eardley reports. things have been a bit calmer in downing street recently but it won‘t last for ever. the race for the keys to this place is heating up. this morning, jeremy hunt launched an attack on his rivalfor ducking interviews and debates. he told borisjohnson not to be a coward, "man up and show the nation you can
4:03 pm
cope with intense scrutiny." i just think it‘s very disrespectful to the conservative party members, not to allow them the chance to see us debating head to head, so that they can be very clear in their minds as to what either of us would actually do. rivals have dubbed him bottler boris after a televised head—to—head tomorrow was called off. mrjohnson is taking part in hustings for tory members, like this one in birmingham at the weekend. his supporters insist he is answering questions. there‘s going to be more than a dozen more of these hustings around the country. there‘s going to be another tv debate, the next one on itv. so of course there is a huge amount of scrutiny and rightly so, and boris has put himself forward for that. these pictures have emerged of mrjohnson and his partner, carrie symonds. the mail says they were taken yesterday, a few days after police were called to their flat following a row.
4:04 pm
neither side wants to dwell on personal matters, but on the politicalfront, there are big, unanswered questions. both candidates want us to trust them, that they can get a better brexit deal, despite all the warnings that might not be possible, but what if they fail? there are many here who don‘t believe borisjohnson‘s claims about a no deal brexit. there are others who say it simply won‘t happen, parliament will block it and even some conservatives warning they might be prepared to bring down the government to stop no deal happening. are the numbers there to stop a no deal on the 31st of october, maybe using a vote of no confidence in the government? i believe that absolutely is the case. i think a dozen or so members of parliament on our side would be voting against supporting of no deal. that would include ministers as well as backbenchers. mrjohnson says a no—deal brexit wouldn‘t be as bad as some think, but some of his claims have been criticised, like the idea there could be a short standstill, allowing current trade deals to continue.

some of his supporters don‘t sound all that enthusiastic. we are leaving the eu at the latest by the 31st of october. this is not about an implementation period anymore. that debate, that ship has sailed and gone. jeremy hunt knows he has lots of work to do to catch the favourite in this race. so what do we do next, he says? a question mr hunt or his arrival will have to answer soon. —— or his rival. i asked nick earlier if boris johnson was right to avoid television debates, as he is ahead in the polls. that is exactly what his campaign tea m that is exactly what his campaign team are counting on. it isjeremy
4:06 pm
hunta team are counting on. it isjeremy hunt a really has to make up the numbers, he knows he knows he‘s not the favourite and has got to get out of the blocks and get on the front foot and say something to try and etch away at that lead of boris johnson apparently it has. i don‘t think team johnson are suddenly panicking and thinking we better do these tv debates because we are getting criticism. jeremy hunt‘s teams will keep doing it because he think it is one of borisjohnson‘s potential soft spots. it seems people don‘t want negative at this point so that could potentially backfire. at the heart of this is a debate within the conservative party, it‘s not for you and i are people around the country, its four conservative members and one of the questions jeremy hunt has to keep asking himself and balancing over the next four weeks or so is when he goes for
4:07 pm
boris johnson‘s soft spots, be four weeks or so is when he goes for borisjohnson‘s soft spots, be that his reluctance to take part in debates or his brixton strategy or his private life, if he does that, some conservatives will look at that as blue on blue, conservatives attacking conservatives and will be highly reluctant to reward it because that would lead to more and more of that criticism of other members of the party. you heard that a lot when other candidates were in the race, tory mps worried this could turn into mud slinging and there are many who want to avoid that. some breaking news, we arejust hearing on the sentencing of paul crossley, who pushed the former eurotunnel boss sir robert malpass onto the tracks, this is the victim, sir robert malpass, 91, and was pushed onto the tracks on the 27th

4:16 pm
but it was a habit that spiralled into addiction. they didn‘t think it was unsafe, he didn‘t think it was unsafe. and i think, i think he felt, in the end, that it controlled him and that‘s why he died, really, because he felt he would never be free of it. jack‘s parents now run a charity to support other families. they‘re welcoming the news that a clinic for young people with gambling problems will open in london in september, in what has, until now, been an adult only service. it‘s estimated a50,000 children are regularly betting — more than those who drink alcohol, smoke or use drugs. many are doing it through video games, fruit machines or sports, despite age restrictions. james started gambling when he was 16 and lost thousands of pounds. i was able to access betting sites through using parents accounts, and also people putting bets on for me. so it was just about the ease and accessibility from a really young age that was worrying, alongside the sheer prevalence

of advertising at that age. group therapy and one—to—one sessions at the clinic will also focus on mental illnesses related to gambling, such as depression, anxiety and substance misuse. i‘ve dedicated my life to treating adult problem gamblers and that has been sad enough, seeing the destruction that these people have incurred. having said this, many of my adult patients were already children with problem gambling issues. new adult clinics will also open in leeds, manchester and sunderland to stop what nhs bosses have described as the scourge of problem gambling ruining more lives. lauren moss, bbc news. you‘re watching afternoon live, these are our headlines: in the race for the tory leadership, jeremy hunt tells rival borisjohnson ‘not to be a coward‘ — and debate with him on tv this week.

4:19 pm
borisjohnson needs to face more public scrutiny over his policies before ballot papers are issued. both men are battling to win the support of conservative party members who will decide next month which of them will become prime minister. only this morning, mr hunt tweeted, "if you want to lead this country, you have to show up and answer questions". the mounting pressure on mrjohnson comes as sky news announced it was cancelling a planned televised debate for tomorrow because he‘d declined to take part. let‘s talk more on this now. joining me in the studio is deputy political editor of the spectator, katy balls and conservative writer, tim mongomerie. thank you for coming in. tim, iwant to talk about language first of all, jeremy hunt told the borisjohnson to man up, is that appropriate? i think it is appropriate language when you are clashing between one party against another in a general election but with my background, i ran conservative home, grassroots conservative website, and i wonder
4:20 pm
how this will play with tory activists, i don't think they were light blue on blue language. man up was one expression jeremy light blue on blue language. man up was one expressionjeremy hunt used but describing a fellow conservative asa but describing a fellow conservative as a coward, someone but describing a fellow conservative as a coward, someone who is likely to emerge victorious from this contest, i don't think that will go down well with activists. i know why he's doing it, he is behind the curve, as borisjohnson has a large lead but rather than helping him catch up i think it might backfire. the other reasonjeremy hunt might wa nt to the other reasonjeremy hunt might want to push for these debates as he is the lesser known of the candidates, he needs exposure. i think that‘s definitely the case, borisjohnson is the i think that‘s definitely the case, boris johnson is the frontrunner so the view from his allies as he has more to lose from the debates. he has to be i think, there is a general picture building up of him avoiding scrutiny and saying much at hustings. at the moment he is sufficiently far ahead, perhaps not to worry too much. there is two things to look at. it
4:21 pm
would take a large catastrophe from borisjohnson to not win the leadership but if you look at all the obstacles he faces in terms of uniting his own party and having a hung parliament, he really wants to get a very large mandate from the membership so i don‘t think boris johnson would be satisfied if he got 55% , johnson would be satisfied if he got 55%, he wants a clear mandate as possible from the membership for his brexit plan and proposals so i think he needs to build momentum. the hard pa rt he needs to build momentum. the hard part was supposed to be the parliamentary stages for boris johnson, he sailed through that, he‘s still very popular with the membership but if you think about what the boris johnson membership but if you think about what the borisjohnson camp would wa nt what the borisjohnson camp would want in terms of headlines and standing a couple of days into the membership stage, this is not it. and yet, tim, there‘s an argument to say it may even work in his favour, with that very constituency because the one thing they can‘t stand is private lives, gossip, intrusive neighbours.
4:22 pm
i think that's true and i also think we are only at the beginning of the members' phase, we had one hustings in front of tory activists in birmingham on saturday, we've got 15 more of these. i predict into a three weeks your viewers will not be complaining we're not seeing enough for borisjohnson complaining we're not seeing enough for boris johnson answering questions, they will be complaining about exactly the opposite. he agreed to an debate in two weeks, there is a debate for the sun newspaper, he will do lots of other interviews, i expect. the idea he will not be closed during what will add up to about 15 hours of him in front of live television cameras of one sort or another, it really is nonsense. we should make the point being interviewed on television is one thing but it‘s no different from appearing in front of the hustings. iain dale conducted the first of the hustings and it was tough. and i think borisjohnson was taken to task or attempted to come on several issues. in terms of the
4:23 pm
optics, you jeremy hunt, who is definitely far back in terms of chances, giving clear answers on several policy areas than boris johnson. i think borisjohnson, in terms of missing one debate, the sky debate, it will not dent his leadership but i think if the general theme is he looks evasive next to jeremy hunt, general theme is he looks evasive next tojeremy hunt, that could be damaging in the long term. which is why i would suggest if i was running boris‘s campaign, don‘t put yourself through it. the reason why boris johnson put yourself through it. the reason why borisjohnson is my choice for the next tory leader is the conservative party is in one hell of a mess and it's the role of the dice and the tory party needs a 546 to get out of the mess it's in. at some point, at the moment, boris johnson, iuri cricket fan, always at the wicket, just ones, at some point borisjohnson has got the wicket, just ones, at some point boris johnson has got to start scoring runs. we need five and six.
4:24 pm
he will have to be boris, at some point, we need to see the cavalier that inspires people. i understand the caution as we just finished the mps staged by the tory party needs him at his best. i'm confident we will see that sooner but we need to see it soon. you can‘t go for the boundary until he becomes prime minister and he‘s just got to block until he gets that, isn‘t that the game being played? i think there is sense amongst even boris johnson‘s played? i think there is sense amongst even borisjohnson‘s backers we re amongst even borisjohnson‘s backers were going to get boring boris in the parliamentary rounds but once we get to the members‘ rounds, where he is clearly favourite, we would see that more dynamic politician come out. and the person many people are backing because they think he has the personality for the election campaign to potentially bring brexit voters back, that would be unlocked.
4:25 pm
if you look at the membership i think they have space to let boris johnson off the leash but at the moment they don‘t seem to be doing that. all to play for still, you think. i would be very surprised, tempting fortune here, but i would be very surprised if borisjohnson does not emerge as the tory leader and therefore as prime minister. exactly what katie said, does he win by 55%, which would be regarded as a setback for him, or does he win back 60 or 70%, which i think is the expectation. he needs that for himself, the party, for the parliamentary party not to just win but to his colleagues in parliament that he is still a winner. we end with you both agreeing coach is always good. sorry. but apologise. thank you, both. —— and don‘t apologise. —— and don‘t apologise. as we‘ve been hearing,
4:26 pm
a man who pushed former eurotunnel boss sir robert malpas — seen here arriving at court — on to tube tracks has been jailed for life. leigh milner is at the old bailey. standing in the dock as he was sentenced for pushing sir robert malpass onto the tracks in april last year. we‘ve seen the horrific cctv footage which shows sir robert malpass walking along the platform when all of a sudden crossley comes behind him and pushes him onto that platform. fortunately a bystander managed to rescue him, he leapt off the platform and pulled him back, away with the train just one are minutes away. sir robert malpas survived but unfortunately he suffered huge, he had a fractured pelvis and a head wound and early at that day we heard crossley also
4:27 pm
attempted to push another man onto the platform, onto the tube tracks, only a couple of metres away at the tube was coming in and he managed to keep his balance at tottenham court road. on two occasions we heard crossley try to push two people onto the tracks. crossley was found guilty of two counts of attempted murder in october, it‘s taken this long because he‘s been seen by a number of psychiatrists for his mental state. we heard how he is diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia at 17 years old and on the day of the attacks he had forgotten, he says, to take his medication and instead took £600 worth of cocaine. he told in court he had voices inside his head telling him to harm someone and the judge said he posed a grave and enduring risk to the public. in this case crossley was given a hybrid order, meaning he will be detained
4:28 pm
in hospital under the section 45 of the mental health act as long as consider necessary, before serving his sentence of life imprisonment with a his sentence of life imprisonment witha minimum his sentence of life imprisonment with a minimum term of 12 years. thank you very much. now let‘s catch up with the weather. be ready for this. it‘s chris fawkes. the atmosphere fully charged, we are likely to see thunderstorms coming up likely to see thunderstorms coming up through this evening and overnight. affecting parts of england. at the moment rain for northern scotland and some showers elsewhere, thundery at times but our focus of attention is beginning to shift to thunderstorms that are developing across western areas of france. they will push northwards this evening and overnight. across the central and eastern areas of england we are most at risk of seeing the torrential downpours. within this we could see lots of rainfall, up to 30 millimetres in just one hour and over several hours
4:29 pm
we could see up to one month‘s worth of rainfall. the central southern england, midlands, east anglia and south—east england most at risk unlikely to be lots of thunder and lightning with the storms. further north, outbreaks of rain is from northern scotland, not quite as muqqy northern scotland, not quite as muggy here, 11 or 12 celsius 02:29:21,217 --> 2147483052:51:25,673 overnight. that‘s the latest 2147483052:51:25,673 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 weather.
