heavy rotation of been on heavy rotation of stations such as alternative and easy listening. what it says about us as a nation is that we are romantic. it is not a brush pop song, it's not a realist r&b track together the romantic, non— ironic, beautiful love song and i think that says a lot about the kind of people we are asa lot about the kind of people we are as a nation. and the amazing thing about the making of chasing cars, gary lightbody says it was the quickest song he has ever written. in fact, one of ten composed in a single night on that title, it came from a comment made by his father. he referred to his lovesick child as being a dog running after cars. # would you like heal and just forget the world —— lie here.
11:31 pm
now it's time for the weather with tomasz shaffernaker. let's get a check on the weather for the next few days. at the moment it isa the next few days. at the moment it is a little unsettled. some rain in the forecast, much—needed rain for the forecast, much—needed rain for the south and next week some big changes on the way, potentially some hot weather but we will talk about that in a second. this is what we have out there right now, this is the weather moving across the uk and this next one, that low pressure is headed further south reaching southern and central parts of the uk on friday. here is thursday's with a map and we have a weather frontjust exiting out into the north seed. minded, slightly fresher conditions coming infor minded, slightly fresher conditions coming in for scotland, northern ireland, northern england is well with some thunder showers around in a few areas but in the south of the afternoon is looking dry and sunny with temperatures still up around 25. that was thursday. this is friday's weather map. the next weather front is moving friday's weather map. the next weatherfront is moving in friday's weather map. the next weather front is moving in and we expect rain to reach the south—west
11:32 pm
and wales early in the morning and basically that whole massive cloud and rain was still towards the east through the course of the day and i think most of us will have overcast skies and there will be some rain on and off through the day including the south where there has not been an awful lot of rain. on friday night into saturday you can see those spells of rain continue to move those spells of rain continue to m ove a cross those spells of rain continue to move across the country. let's have a look now at the weekend. this saturday and the low pressure is still making its presence felt. there is still a weather front to get through to if you have any plans on saturday, expect a mixture of sunshine and showers. main weather front is out of the way, it is in norway and denmark but behind it in the wake of that you can still see some showers in the forecast dotted around randomly across the uk. quite fresh, particularly across some north—western areas. on sunday, the next weather front is approaching. you can see rain splashing into northern ireland, western scotland as well but sunday, at least at this
11:33 pm
stage, is looking dry across the bulk of england and probably wales as well. let's have a look at the jetstrea m as well. let's have a look at the jetstream on monday. monday into tuesday, the jetstream is jetstream on monday. monday into tuesday, thejetstream is blowing out of the south—west and you can see it is pushing in that cloud and rain, this is rain on the forecast here, in the direction of north—western britain. monday into tuesday we expect those weather fronts to continue to brush the north—west of the uk but at the same time, the wind is turning direction and coming in from the south which means that temperatures are rising to the this is the pattern into next week. a big dip in thejetstream, goes up again sending with affront to the north but ahead of it we get hotair to the north but ahead of it we get hot air wafting in from the south and the current thinking is that there is a pretty big heatwave on there is a pretty big heatwave on the way for spain, portugal, france, parts of central europe as well as temperatures could easily exceed a0 degrees and you can imagine that some of that heat will waft in our direction. not too dissimilar to what we saw some weeks ago. what we
11:34 pm
are not sure is when the jetstream is going to come back and send these weather fronts back in our direction because this will cool things off. we know the heat is heading our way but sometime next week, be a wednesday, thursday or friday there will be a dive in the jetstream pushing the heat away towards the south and east and in its place we will get slightly fresher air from the north—west. for next week, we do know that there is a hot spell on the way and it will probably affect much of the uk, particularly the south and our best guess at the moment, probably around 32 degrees, not out of the question.
11:35 pm
hello, this is bbc news. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow mornings papers in a moment — first, the headlines: the younger brother of the manchester arena suicide bomber is extradited to the uk to face multiple charges in connection with the attack he will be charged with the murder of the 22 victims of the bombing at a pop concert in manchester two years ago. greater manchester police officers have arrested hashem abedi for murder, attempted murder, and conspiracy to cause an explosion likely to endanger life. the us house of representatives votes to condemn president donald
11:36 pm
trump for "racist comments" aimed at four congresswomen. boris johnson and jeremy hunt make their final pitches to conservative party members in the last hustings of the leadership contest. a student from birmingham is found guilty of attempted murder after driving his ford fiesta into cyclists and police outside parliament. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are conservative peer baroness newlove and features writer from the independent, james rampton. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the telegraph leads on the debate around free tv licences for over—75s. it reports on comments made by bbc executives who were asked about the corporation's postion on the issue.
11:37 pm
it also also features a photo of borisjohnson holding a kipper at the final hustings of the conservative leadership race. the independent also leads on domestic politics. the "bitter end" is how it describes theresa may's last major speech before she steps down from the role. it calls it her "final swipe" at the brexiteers in her party who brought her time in office to an early end. boris also takes centre page on the times, but its top story is about young drivers. it says they will be banned from roads at night under government plans designed to cut accident rates. the eu's competition commissioner has launched a formal investigation into amazon and is apparently preparing to fine other big tech firms before she steps down from the role, according to the financlai times. and the metro's front page has the headline "back to face british justice" — it reports that hashem abedi, the younger brother of the man who bombed the manchester arena,
11:38 pm
was today extradited to the uk from libya. lets start with the independent, shall we. the bitter end, it says, james, and this is about the prime minister's last major speech as prime minister, and it is quite a full speech. it is, and bitter end does sum it up. she seems bitter and twisted, railing a bit like king lear against herfate. she reminds me somewhat of a gunslinger who knows she is going down, but as she is going down takes potshots at her enemies, saying if i'm going down i will take you with me. she is very angry, i would say, at the european reform group. she is making huge criticisms of their intransigence and their inability to compromise. she accuses them of being absolutist. i would also say it is a
11:39 pm
coded attack on borisjohnson, who is likely to move into her house next week. someone who is very hard line on brexit, and it is that hard line on brexit, and it is that hard line that ultimately brought her down, and that is why she is so furious. you are a conservative pair, how do you feel about the tone of this? i am disappointed in a way, because it is not very dignified to do. you are at the top of the tree. and she might have this anger inside, but that's politics, unfortunately. take the title away, politics is brutal. for me, it is about — she talks hear about the right of the party, she said i would stand down if they voted, and they didn't vote. well, that's politics, because even in the house of lords you never know until the division lobbies are open to go through, so i'm a little bit disappointed in a
11:40 pm
sense, because to me i would have held my head up high and i would have parked all of this and used it within the chamber for a better result, rather than a bitter within the chamber for a better result, ratherthan a bitter end, use it in a proactive way. the photograph, they are just not nice words, are they? it is very toxic. whoever takes the button, it won't be easy. she says we should all come together, but this is actually splitting it again. the bitter irony is that she showed no willingness to compromise when she was in number ten, but when she was negotiating with parliament she was completely intransigent, and that also brought about her downfall. it is a strange business, politics. enoch powell said all political dynasty ‘s end in failure, and hers has ended in a catastrophic failure, one of the most disastrous premierships in
11:41 pm
history, and she has gone down spewing bile and bitterness, and it is very sad. i'm afraid it is reflective of the utter failure of her leadership. let's go to the front page of the times, which has gone with a picture of the man widely assumed to take over from mrs may, holding a kipper. widely assumed to take over from mrs may, holding a kipperlj widely assumed to take over from mrs may, holding a kipper. ijust have images of backstage, what are we going to give him to hold to make the front page? do you need to have a proper? go down to tesco and find something! you could go down to 50p island and get a better piece of fish than that. he was making a point, it wasn't his breakfast. fish than that. he was making a point, it wasn't his breakfastlj would point, it wasn't his breakfast.” would have got a banana, we can't haveit would have got a banana, we can't have it curly a certain way... he started that story. maybe that would have made more sense. there is some
11:42 pm
circularity. the wrapping that is forced to have been put around keepers has made them more expensive, and in his utopian world all of these rules will fall away and we will do amazing deals with the faroe and we will do amazing deals with the fa roe islands and we will do amazing deals with the faroe islands and christmas island, and it will be fantastic. to me it is not a fantasy, but i don't matter. he is speaking to 0.2% of the population, who will decide our next prime minister. i find that horrifying but it is a way it is.” am just horrifying but it is a way it is.” amjusta horrifying but it is a way it is.” am just a realist, horrifying but it is a way it is.” amjust a realist, i horrifying but it is a way it is.” am just a realist, i don't see — if you... a pointless eu rule... it is a pointless... don't use props, just say it as it is and treat us as an equal. i don't think you really need a prop to say that. if you are going
11:43 pm
to bea a prop to say that. if you are going to be a leader you don't need silly props, you need a voice to lead. to be a leader you don't need silly props, you need a voice to leadm undermines any statesmanlike. .. he is like a comedy act. yes, it undermines any kind of statesmanship that he is trying to project. he looks like a stand—up — have you heard the one about a kipper? two kippers walked into a bar...” heard the one about a kipper? two kippers walked into a bar... i am a conservative pair, and i am loyal, but for me, this is not what the young people need to see, you do not need a prop. you are there to lead, what is he going to use when he goes to do deals and you have to be careful about what you do. interesting views from both of you. this one might make you disagree. the story next to the photograph, which is linked to brexit but is an different story, no deal will send
11:44 pm
written into recession. helen, what is this? i am going to look at the report, and! is this? i am going to look at the report, and i think it is important to look at the economy, what we are going to be like, but nobody knows what the deal is going to be like if there is a forecast. it is a forecast from the office of budget responsibility. yes, i know. at the end of the day, that is important, but i want to know what going to deliver, and i think until then we need to have an open conversation about it. i think we will wait and see where we are going with the house of commons and the house of lords, and then we can say it is a valid point or not. that is a very reasonable response. i far less reasonable response. i far less reasonable response. i far less reasonable response is that this is an independent body, the obr, and i
11:45 pm
know the sainted michael gove says we have had enough of experts, but i do trust an independent and if their five year projection is that the economy will drop by 3%, i am worried by that. also, the element that also concerns me is that the people who will suffer the most in such a decline in the economy are many areas that voted for brexit. the impoverished people who feel they have no chance, there have been neglected by society, and in my view thatis neglected by society, and in my view that is a lot of the reason why they voted for brexit. those of the people who will suffer, not rich people who will suffer, not rich people like jeremy hunt people who will suffer, not rich people likejeremy hunt and boris johnson, they won't suffer, they are incredibly rich. and they are risking inflicting poverty on great swathes of the country and that makes me furious. that is why i am saying we should have an open discussion with people that it affects. not of the top end, where they have lost touch with reality in some sense, but what does it mean for people at the bottom. that is a good point, four of the five last candidates all went to oxford and
11:46 pm
we re candidates all went to oxford and were pa rt of candidates all went to oxford and were part of an incredibly rich elite. how much are they in touch with the people who will really be affected by these cataclysmic decisions they are making? that's what i'm saying. people are fed up with politics and it feels very much like a westminster bubble again. i think we need to have an open conversation, be honest. if you can't do that, what is the point? it is about elitism, and we need to come down to the common person on the ground and understand what it means to them. heading away from politics... this is a disaster! young drivers facing a night ban.l lot of countries already use this system, whereby drivers under the age of 25 are not allowed to drive at night. the statistics are incredible. people between the ages of 17 and 2a only make up 7% of
11:47 pm
licence holders in the uk, but they are involved in a quarter of the crashes that lead to death or serious injury. that is out of proportion, and road safety campaigners have been saying for a long time that the government hasn't tackled this issue. if they are going to bring in the band, i think thatis going to bring in the band, i think that is a good idea. last year, 1700 people died on the roads, and that is way too many. if there are any measures that can reduce that number they have to be embraced.” measures that can reduce that number they have to be embraced. i have to agree again! . it! i do think they have to be embraced. i have to agree again! .. i do think our roads... i have met many campaigners about fatalities on our roads. it has become very gung ho on some motorways. anything to make the roads safer, i am a mother of young girls, iwant roads safer, i am a mother of young girls, i want to make them safer. you see these young boys — what happens if they are in your parents car? if they take out their parents
11:48 pm
car, what happens to them? and most parents are taxis already, and i just think hang on a minute. i think it is important to look at this announcement. it is something to look at, we have the black box that helps with insurance, and this is about safety. the roads are not saved, we see about safety. the roads are not saved, we see many on about safety. the roads are not saved, we see many on motorways speeding, and there are no police on out speeding, and there are no police on our motorways all roads, so we need to do something. never thought i would say this, but this comes out of chris grayling's department, and i agree with it! it doesn't mention chris grayling. no, itjust says department of transport. it might work. this another story about young people on the front of the telegraph. helen, you were saying that you occupy a role at a
11:49 pm
university? i have become pro- vice chancellor and i'm grateful but i am very much involved in awareness of what goes on and i have been to see the department dealing with well— being and incidents the department dealing with well—being and incidents where there has been abuse or rape and they have i'io has been abuse or rape and they have no confidence in the system. for me, thatis no confidence in the system. for me, that is wrong because, a, universities need to do something. more importantly, they have told me that the police who used to go around the campus have been taken away. those police are the eyes and is in the builder relationship with them. brings me back to victims commission going around sexual referral centres who do a fantastic job with victims but i saw many freezers full of dna from people who have been raped by professors at universities and they... i'm not
11:50 pm
blaming anybody, not naming names, it isjust being professional but they were taking a liberty and they did not prosecute because they wanted a degree, they wanted to keep their jobs. wanted a degree, they wanted to keep theirjobs. that wasjust wanted a degree, they wanted to keep theirjobs. that was just another burden. and in bolton i am going to make it safe. you cannot keep crushing this under the rug. the crown prosecution service are trying to actively encourage, but not hearing that. this is the next stage of life, what are we doing? the figures are quite startling. they are quite shocking. in 2014 there we re are quite shocking. in 2014 there were 65 allegations made whereas last year it reached 626. a tenfold increase. all the points use it made we re increase. all the points use it made were well said. i hate to say it... i absolutely agree. one phrase here, if we don't act on this we risk leaving a generation betrayed. i think that is an important phrase to underline. young people are
11:51 pm
struggling to find jobs, struggling to find housing. they are trying to make their way in the world but if they also feel that they are victims ofa they also feel that they are victims of a crime and they are not taken seriously and the accusations ijust laughed off then they feel even more disappointed. and if they do go forward , disappointed. and if they do go forward, and i met many, they study as well. and we have got to get this right. education is important but it should be a safety measure that we need to look at. people are living away from home. this is not right and we need to act on the cps need to prosecute more. very well said. that's it for the papers tonight. don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website. it's all there for you — seven days a week at bbc.co.uk/papers — and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you baroness newlove
11:52 pm
and james rampton. hello. i'm ben croucher with with latest from the bbc sport centre. england are through to the semi finals of the netball world cup with a game to spare thanks to a 72—46 win over trinidad and tobago. they'll play south africa tomorrow evening for the right to finish top of the group and in theory an easier path to the final. for scotland though — another disappointing defeat will see them finish outside the top eight. kate grey has been at the liverpool arena for us. england continue to impress at this world cup with five wins from five following their match against trinidad & tobago today. there were many changes over the course of the match. neville trying out some deformed combinations but more importantly, saving the legs of some players to keep them fresh for
11:53 pm
tougher matches to follow. that will come with south africa. england play them tomorrow. they have been a non— form team here in liverpool. they have been building through this tournament and are well on course to having their best world cup to date. england will need to be ready for that one. but i am sure they will have one eye on the semifinals. and there they will face new zealand or australia who play each other tomorrow and that will determine how the semifinals will pan out. scotla nd the semifinals will pan out. scotland suffered another defeat againstjamaica. scotland suffered another defeat against jamaica. they came scotland suffered another defeat againstjamaica. they came out fighting in the first quarter and lead wire goal after the first quarter but unfortunately they could not keep up the pace and jamaica eventually sealing the game out and scotla nd eventually sealing the game out and scotland faced another heavy defeat. that means they will finish out of the top eight here in liverpool. disappointing for them considering they were raking to number seven coming into the tournament. they face trinidad & tobago tomorrow, hoping to finish the group phase on
11:54 pm
a high. england, however, are still on course to making it through to the first—ever netball world cup final. a group of newcastle fans held a protest earlier this evening at the running on the club following what they call the unambitous appointment of steve bruce. their frustration has been directed at owner mike ashley — calling on him to sell the club. following newcastle's confirmation of bruce arrival, #bruceout was trending on twitter. he signed a three year deal at st james' park to replace rafa benitez having resigned from his position at sheffield wednesday on monday. defender federico fernandes says the players must now keep the fans happy. i understand the fan's situation. but for us, we want to work, we want to be better as a team and try to
11:55 pm
work hard so that when we start the new season we are work hard so that when we start the new season we are ready to show the fa ns new season we are ready to show the fans and everyone that we can compete. celtic are through to the second qualifying round of the champions league — beating fk sarajevo 5—2 on aggregate. taking a 3—1 lead from last week's game in bosnia, ryan christie fired celtic ahead in the first half before sarejevo equalised. callum mcgregor grabbed the winner on the night. they face estonian champions nomme kalju await in next round. irish champions dundalk beat riga on penalties. linfield lost 4—0 to rosenborg — 6—0 on agreegate geraint thomas remains in second place in the tour de france on the last flat stage before the race hits the pyrenees. australian caleb ewan won stage 11 into tolouse, living up to his nickname "the pocket rocket" to pip dutchman dylan groenewegen to victory. france's julian alaphilippe retained the overall leader's yellow jersey — just over a minute ahead of defending champion thomas. that's all the sport for now.
11:56 pm
you can find more on all those stories on the bbc sport website — including the build up to the open championship at royal portrush and fresh cut podcast from the 5 live gang. from me and the team — a very good night and we move to the weather. today temperatures across parts of eastern england got very close to 27 degrees. i don't think we will see temperatures as high as that over the next few days, not for a little while because things have been changing. this cloud pushing from west to east has bought outbreaks of rain. more cloud on the satellite picture bringing more rain for us on friday. in between those two weather systems, a slightly clearer slot for tomorrow. sunny spells, showers as well and it will be quite breezy. through the rest of tonight we have a band of cloud and patchy rain pushing eastwards. that will clear away through the first half of tomorrow morning and behind it spells of sunshine and some showers. they are plentiful across the northern half of the uk but through tomorrow afternoon, don't be
11:57 pm
surprised if you find a shower across suffolk, essex and kent but for most parts of england and wales it will be dry. some spells of sunshine, quite breezy and cooler thanit sunshine, quite breezy and cooler than it has been today. for northern ireland and scotland, here we will see many showers, some on the heavy side with the odd flash of lightning and rumble of thunder. they should move through quest, quickly. may be a tricky first day at the open. some showers could be heading that make and breezy as well. as we go through tomorrow night, thursday night into friday we keep showers for a time in the north and then clear spells. a more comfortable night for sleeping across eastern and south—eastern areas but the high behind me you can see the start of our next weather may consider cloud and outbreaks of rain into the south—western wales. this frontal system makes for a 5°99y this frontal system makes for a soggy day in places on friday, even in the south of the uk where it has been very dry. lately you can see
11:58 pm
the way in which that rain pushes north—east. as we get into southern and central parts of scotland it may not arrive northern scotland here, holding on to some relatively dry and bright weather. along with the wet weather we will have brisk wind as well, particularly for wales and the south—west and temperatures dropping on where they have been. 18- 21 dropping on where they have been. 18— 21 degrees. rain on friday clears away on saturday morning and then saturday we are back to square one. as sunshine and shower day. some showers will be drenching downpours but was good dry spells in between. things earning a little worn down the south. sundays drier for most. into next week, split fortunes. the north of the uk is u nsettled fortunes. the north of the uk is unsettled with rain at times in the south largely dry and we could see some heat building on those temperatures could reach the low 30s. that is all from me.

i'm rico hizon in singapore, the headlines: an ebola outbreak in the democratic republic of congo — the world health organisation declares an internationl emergency. boeing offers $50 million to the families of those killed in two 737 max crashes, but relatives say the company is yet to apologise. if boeing's wrongful conduct continues, another plane will dive to the ground, killing me, you, or your children. i'm samantha simmonds in london. also on the programme: myanmar‘s military accused of violating human rights —
