7:01 pm
good evening and welcome to bbc news. the mail on sunday has published more leaked diplomatic correspondence from britain's former ambassador in washington — defying warnings from scotland yard that media organisations could be prosecuted for doing so. in one of the cables, sir kim darroch suggests that president trump pulled out of the iran nuclear deal last year to spite barack obama. our political correspondent helena wilkinson reports. may last year, boris johnson as foreign secretary goes to washington and meets his us counterpart. his mission, to persuade the us president to soften his stance and stick with the iran deal. he appeared on talk shows. tougher on iran...
7:02 pm
but efforts failed — donald trump did not listen and withdrew from the deal. now new confidential e—mails printed in the mail on sunday reveal what was allegedly going on behind—the—scenes. according to the paper, sir kim darroch wrote to mrjohnson, saying... under the deal, iran had agreed to limit nuclear activities. the trade—off for us economic sanctions to be lifted. donald trump did not think it went far enough. borisjohnson failed in trying to persuade him, and he has been criticised by those who feel he did not do enough to support sir kim, who has since resigned. it was wrong for it to be leaked, it was wrong for president trump to throw a wobbly and behave like a toddler. it was wrong for theresa may
7:03 pm
to be as weak as she was, but the real villain of the piece is borisjohnson who refused to stand with one of our most senior diplomats. focus has shifted to a row over press freedom in britain — whether it was right for the paper to publish the e—mails. scotland yard has issued a warning, if you publish leaked government documents, you are at risk of committing a crime — comments which have been widely condemned. i do not think the mail on sunday was wrong, we have a very precious freedom of press legislation, so i think we have the right balance. for whoever becomes the next prime minister, they will have to pick up the pieces of this diplomatic fallout. in the meantime, there is a criminal investigation into who leaked the e—mails. and we'll find out how this story and many others are covered in tomorrow's front pages at 10:30 and 11:30pm this evening in the papers —
7:04 pm
our guests joining me tonight are chief sports reporter at the sun — martin lipton — and ruth lea who is economic adviser at arbuthnot banking group. it is an afternoon of ten sport. at lord's they are tying, and england and new zealand will have to play a super over. after all those matches, they each get another six balls to bowl. at the moment they are regrouping, we might be able to show you... we can show you anything because they are just having a think about how to handle this. both sides get six balls each, and that is what the world cup final comes down to. england had a total of 241 to beat, and they didn't manage it. that was the total that new zealand had got in runs, and they ran out of overs. and so in a rather unusual move... i
7:05 pm
can't recall how often i have heard of this, john watson can tell us. how unusual is the situation, john? it's certainly something i have never witnessed, and i'm sure the players were not expecting this. it has been a dramatic end to this match. and who would have thought after weeks of cricket we would find ourselves in this situation. these two tea ms ourselves in this situation. these two teams cannot be split, so we go toa two teams cannot be split, so we go to a super over. the team batting second will bat first, so england will go in first, and eoin morgan looked cool, calm and collected, on the balcony, but even he cannot believe it has come to this. it was so believe it has come to this. it was so dramatic, with england requiring 15 runs heading into the final over. ben stokes headed a huge six in the penultimate over, he then hit another six, and then a real surprise as he ran two runs as the ball was thrown in from the deep, as he was diving towards the crease,
7:06 pm
the ball hit his bat and went out forfour the ball hit his bat and went out for four buying. they recorded a six in that final over. who would have thought, we never would have envisaged the situation. a huge drama here at lord's, envisaged the situation. a huge drama here at lords, and let's not forget, cricket wanted its moment. it wanted what we have seen at the women's world cup, with the world watching on free to air tv. and this is that opportunity. as we know, it is that opportunity. as we know, it is not behind a pay wall. it is being shown live on terrestrial tv. this is what they wanted, plenty of people, the country watching this moment, and cricket has duly delivered today. incredible scenes at lord's, delivered today. incredible scenes at lords, and the crowds not only watching on tv but inside the ground all on tenterhooks as we head into this super over, which we wait for it to get under way in the next few moments. you cannot have the world cup final tide, so you have to wait until they appear. they will have to
7:07 pm

7:08 pm
and that is it. on a massive mis—hit, wimbledon number five and that is it. on a massive mis—hit, wimbledon numberfive for the serbian. novak djokovic beats roger federer after five hours on court. you can see that is his fifth singles title at wimbledon. there will be lots and the crowd who are very sorry for roger federer who had a lot of support on court today. an extraordinary match that was so close. and could have gone either way. i think he was enjoying the moment. during the tariff, the grass. i don't think i've seen that before. it is an evening of first round. —— an evening of firsts all

7:21 pm
who had acted as whistleblowers as "disafffected" and said they had "professional and personal axes to grind". ms thornberry told the bbc‘s andrew marr show that it was important labour addressed the problems raised by the programme. i think that the labour party has to deal with this issue, and frankly, i welcome the fact that the... i mean, it's a shame and a disgrace that the equalities and human rights commission have been brought in to look at the labour party but they have, and i think we should now welcome it. i think we should open — wait a minute. we should open our doors up and we should say to them, "right, we have been trying to improve our processes. clearly, it's still not working. can you help us?" a 25 year old man has been charged with the murder of a pregnant woman in south london and the manslaughter of her baby son. kelly mary fauvrelle was eight months pregnant when she was attacked at her home in south london two weeks ago. navtej johal reports. kelly mary fauvrelle was eight months pregnant when she was fatally
7:22 pm
stabbed at her home in croydon in an attack last month. her son, riley, who was delivered by paramedics at the scene, also died a few days later in hospital. police were called to her house in the early hours of the morning, where she was in cardiac arrest, and died at the scene. herfamily, including her mother and baby nephew, were all at home at the time of the attack. today, police have charged aaron mckenzie with her murder and the manslaughter of her child. the 25—year—old has also been charged with one count of possession of an offensive weapon. he is one of three men arrested over the deaths. a 37—year—old was released with no further action, while a 29—year—old has been bailed until next month. aaron mckenzie is due to appear in front of magistrates tomorrow. the chancellor philip hammond has said the uk will not be able
7:23 pm
to control key elements of a no deal brexit. speaking to bbc panorama, just days left before he's expected to leave the treasury, the chancellor says the eu will control most of the process if the uk leaves without a deal later this year. private business is an important player in this, and the eu 27 control many of the levers. for example, we can make sure that goods flow in through the port of dover without any friction. but we cannot control the outward flow into the port of calais. the french can dial that up or down, just the same as the spanish for years have dialled up or down the length of the queues at the border going into gibraltar. we cannot control what no—deal brexit would be like? we cannot, because many of the levers are held by others — the eu 27 or private businesses. we can seek to persuade them, but we cannot control it.
7:24 pm
philip hammond speaking to the bbc‘s panorama programme. you can watch the full programme, britain's brexit crisis, on bbc1 this coming thursday, july 18, at 9pm. meanwhile, the work and pensions secretary amber rudd says she's changed her position on a no—deal brexit. she had previously been opposed to the idea, but has told the andrew marr programme that the possibility had to be kept alive in order to succeed in the negotiations. i maintain my position that a no—deal brexit is bad for this country, and will be difficult to handle. to be fair, even brexiteers say that at the very least it will have adverse consequences. i am very clear that we need to be frank with the british people that no deal is not easy, it will be something that will challenge us, but if we have to do it, it has to be a backstop, by the end of october, but i no longer say that i will lie down in front of the bulldozers if it arrives. tropical storm barry has made landfall in the us state of louisiana. the first major hurricane
7:25 pm
of the season has been downgraded but authorities are warning of heavy rain and possible tornadoes throughout today. all flights in and out of the airport in the state's biggest city new orleans have now resumed after being cancelled yesterday. thousands have been evacuated their homes and tens of thousands are without power. stephanie abrams, meteorologist at the weather channel in the us, gave us this update from morgan city, which is south of new orleans. the good news is it is starting to lose some strength because it is over land. the bad news is it does still pose a threat for flooding as we head over the next several days. some areas have seen over 170 millimetres of rain so far, and we are expecting more. the winds have been over 60 knots in a lot of locations. and much higher than that for some. on the river behind me, i can slip this camera around and show you these men and women who are trying to get out to their hunting and fishing cabins. this river is well out of its banks.
7:26 pm
obviously not supposed to be this high. we had a very wet spring, a lot of snow melt in the midwest, and all that water came down here, and then we had a southerly push of wind from storm barry, that pushed all the water higher. so right now that water is slowly going down, but still in the coming days we do have to worry about this going to other states, north of this area and also east of this area. obviously, people like yourself are mapping the course of the eye of the storm very closely. do you feel that the authorities are responding well to what has been unfolding so far? they absolutely have. the national guard has been here helping people. there have been mandatory evacuations, and even those that didn't evacuate, yesterday the coast guard did go to try to help some people. i do believe the authorities
7:27 pm
are doing a greatjob here. police have used batons and pepper spray against demonstrators in hong kong as thousands of pro—democracy campaigners took to the streets again today, as they try to keep up the momentum of recent mass protests. scuffles broke out between officers in riot gear and the anti—government protesters, who built barricades in the street. this evening, thousands remain on the streets and have been facing off against police. our correspondent stephen mcdonell has been in hong kong this evening. it is a pretty tense mood here. this is the situation right now, as you can see behind me there are hundreds of riot police that have come with large shields and batons and helmets. there are rows behind me.
7:28 pm
and the reason they are here, i will show you, is that as we go to the march, which was legal today and given permission to go ahead, as it has reached the end of its official permission time. so, from this moment on, what i'm going to show you is an illegal gathering. this has now become the pattern in hong kong. there is a large march, where people have now gone beyond just calling for getting rid of this extradition bill, and now they see that they are defending hong kong's broaderfreedoms, and even calling for one person one vote democratic elections. we move down to the other end, i'm sure you can see this is how the protesters have responded to that riot police presence. this is their front line, if you like. they have put up barricades, and they are double layered, if you like. there are umbrellas as well, they are designed to repel tear
7:29 pm
gas and pepper spray, and are also symbolic of the umbrella movement protests. if we come a bit closer, as the rain comes down, you can see how these have been put together to try to secure them, and at some point the police are going to come through and have to clear this. but, you know, it does show the seriousness of what has now become the new normal in hong kong. every weekend, we have these rolling protests. and at the end of it, these demonstrators, they are prepared to have a showdown with the police. behind these umbrellas, they've all got helmets like this one. they know that tear gas and pepper spray is coming, and somehow or other, both sides have got to find an end to this crisis, but there is none in sight.
7:30 pm
england have beaten new zealand in the world cup final at lord's. it all came down to what is known as a super all came down to what is known as a super over, where all came down to what is known as a super over, where both sides get to bowl another six balls. it basically comes down to who can score the most ru ns comes down to who can score the most runs in those six, unless you lose two wickets in that time, in which case you are out. england had scored 15 runs of six balls, new zealand had scored 14, they needed 16 so that they would win. it got to the point where there were two more runs needed from one ball, and they didn't do it. they were just about to score that final, that second run, and the batsmen was run out by the fielder. let's speak tojohn watson. it couldn't have been any closer.
