6:00 am
good morning, welcome to breakfast with christian fraser and nina warhurst. our headlines today: 20 people are killed and two dozen injured in a mass shooting good morning, welcome to breakfast with christian fraser and nina warhurst. our headlines today: 20 people are killed and two dozen injured in a mass shooting at a shopping mall in the us city of el paso. ona day on a day that would have been a normal day for someone to leisurely go shopping, turned into one of the most deadly days in the history of texas. more homes are evacuated near a dam that's in danger of collapsing as forecasters warn there's heavy rain to come. talks to avert a strike at heathrow are to resume today, but nearly 200 flights have
6:01 am
already been cancelled. the first ashes test is finely poised, australia have a lead of 3a going into day 4 but are three wickets down. talisman steve smith remains at the crease. after a brighter day, it looks like the clouds will be closing in again. more details coming up. it's sunday 4 august. our top story: at least 20 people have been killed in the latest mass shooting in the united states. the massacre happened in a mall in the city of el paso, where many families were out shopping. a 21—year—old white man has been arrested and police are looking into whether he deliberately targeted the hispanic community. our north america correspondent chris buckler reports. families were out shopping on a
6:02 am
saturday morning when they were advised to run. the mall in el paso, armed officers moved in, responding to another report of an active shooter in america. the gunman walked into the packed walmart supermarket, firing indiscriminately. the estimates of numbers of shoppers in walmart was between 1000 and 3000. it was back to school and walmart was at capacity when the shootings occurred. el paso sits at america's border with mexico. it has a large hispanic population, and many people cfoss hispanic population, and many people cross over hispanic population, and many people cross over into the us to visit friends and go shopping. the police say the suspect taken into custody is white and he has been identified by local media as 21—year—old patrick crusius. police said it was a murder investigation that officers
6:03 am
we re a murder investigation that officers were examining the idea that it was a hate crime, and looking at links toa a hate crime, and looking at links to a white nationalist manifesto claiming the attack was targeted at the hispanic community. it was published anonymously online. disgusting, intolerable. not texan, and we are going to aggressively prosecuted both as capital murder and isa prosecuted both as capital murder and is a hate crime, which is exactly what it appears to be, without having seen all the evidence yet. just days ago, two members of staff were killed at a separate shooting at a walmart store in mississippi, and days before that people were shot dead at a food festival in northern california. now it is the turn of another state to mourn. i don't know, we have never done this before. i would hope and pray we never have to do it again, but we will do it. we're going to survive, because that's who we are. ina survive, because that's who we are. in a post on twitter, president
6:04 am
trump described the shootings is terrible and pledged the support of his government. but some americans will be left wondering about the more regular rhetoric used by its politicians, and asking if some of the country's debts could be avoided if there were tighter restrictions on guns. do we know anything more about the gunman? we know that one white man was arrested, he has been identified as 21—year—old patrick crusius. one line of investigation is establishing whether anonymous white nationalist manifesto that was published online has any link with him. the governor of texas was speaking earlier today, and he described the scenes that unfolded
6:05 am
behind me as horrific. he said of the 26 injured, many are fighting life—threatening injuries. it is possible the death toll could climb further. as you heard, mass shootings are not uncommon here. only last week and a six—year—old and a 13—year—old were among those killed when a gunman opened fire at a festival in northern california. so there is a shock here today, el pasois so there is a shock here today, el paso is considered to be one of the us‘s safest cities. the country is coming to terms with the horror that has unfolded here today and there are again calls for something to be done about it. presidential candidates were gathered in las vegas earlier today, we heard from a number of them, including bernie sanders, and also beto o'rourke. they are talking about the level of racism that is being seen in the us,
6:06 am
and put some of the blame for that on president trump's door. we have heard on twitter from the on president trump's door. we have heard on twitterfrom the president, heard on twitterfrom the president, he and the first lady sent their prayers via twitter to the people here, as they come to terms with what happened. another 55 homes have been evacuated near a dam in derbyshire which is in danger of collapsing. police say it's because more heavy rain is forecast. efforts are continuing to repair the dam at toddbrook reservoir. michael cowan has the latest. let's talk to our reporter luxmy gopal, who's in whaley bridge. luxmy, there's big concerns about this bad weather that's forecast later? you can see behind me the teams that have been working through the night at toddbrook resevoir to try to reduce water levels by pumping water away. 55 more homes evacuated late last night on top of the 1.5 thousand people who had to leave
6:07 am
their homes last thursday. they have been told they are unlikely to be able to return home for good any time before the end of the week. emergency teams are doing all they can to reduce water levels in the reservoir to try to minimise the risk of it breaching and causing a potential risk to life. they are reducing those water levels, which have already dropped by 1.3 metres since last thursday, but that is not low enough to make it safe enough for residents to return. heavy rain is forecast later, with met office weather warnings in place. while it looks green and tranquil, it is a very serious situation. authorities are making it clear that it is not something to be taken lightly, and they will be watching the skies and rain levels very closely, and watching water levels closely.
6:08 am
we will try to get a weather forecast from susan powell, she might give us some update on the showers expected. more talks are planned today to try and stop a strike at heathrow by engineers, firefighters and security staff. 177 flights have already been cancelled on monday and tuesday after a union vote rejected a pay offer. heathrow has not said which flights will be cancelled, and said passengers should check with their airlines to see if they are affected. 60 firearms have been found hidden in a car arriving in doverfrom calais. it's believed to be the largest seizure of lethal weapons at a uk port. a 37—year—old man from dublin is due to appear in court on monday. two united airlines pilots have been arrested at glasgow airport for allegedly failing a breath test before boarding a flight to new york. the men, aged 45 and 61, have not been charged, but remain in custody and are expected to appear before court on tuesday. they face up to two years in prison.
6:09 am
a french inventor is hoping to cross the english channel this morning on a jet—powered hoverboard. it's franky za pata's second attempt to cross the 20—mile stretch of water. he tried it last month but fell into the sea when he failed to land on a refuelling platform. he's due to set off in around half an hour. he didn't do very well last time, did he? he got about halfway and then he was in the water. , that he is brave. we will bring you pictures when we get them. returning to our top story now. at least 20 people have been killed and 26 others injured in the latest mass shooting in the united states. the massacre happened in a mall in the city of el paso in texas. victoria ballderrama was shopping with her family when the attack happened — she joins us now from el paso. very good have you to join us. tell
6:10 am
us very good have you to join us. tell us where you very good have you to join us. tell us where you were very good have you to join us. tell us where you were when you got word that there was a gunman in the mall. it was just an average day, and i was out at the mall with my parents and,i was out at the mall with my parents and, i mean, we were on the first floor when it all started happening, they told us to get to the corner of they told us to get to the corner of the store to wait for further instructions, and that is when they told us there was an active shooter inside the mall on the second level. we were standing there for a while, waiting for instruction, and after about an hour i think the swat team came by and they evacuated us out of the building with our hands up, and running through the building we were able to exit. so you didn't hear the shots but you were quite aware that something was happening. how do they
6:11 am
get you out of the building? on saturdays the mall is packed, i mean, it is crazy. i can only imagine how long it took to get all these people out of them all. i mean, ican these people out of them all. i mean, i can only imagine, but i didn't hearany mean, i can only imagine, but i didn't hear any shots, we were just, we we re very didn't hear any shots, we were just, we were very confused as to what exactly was going on, being that there is bad signal inside the mall, andi there is bad signal inside the mall, and i couldn't get any updates of what was going on outside, only next door at the walmart where most of the activity was taking place, but we we re the activity was taking place, but we were well aware that something was not right, being that we weren't being told a lot of. we're your pictures here as you were being evacuated. we can see from the pictures that it was vacated, it had already been vacated, and you were then moved where? to a parking lot outside? that's right. so, i mean,
6:12 am
being thatjcpenney outside? that's right. so, i mean, being that jcpenney is outside? that's right. so, i mean, being thatjcpenney is on i guess the north side of the building, i wa nt to the north side of the building, i want to say, they had evacuated most of the people, especially first at dillards, where i heard that lots of people were yelling and screaming in there. they were the first to be evacuated, and they took us out to the parking lot between cielo vista mall and the walmart. we were in the parking lot for about three hours. el paso is triple digit heat, it was hot, we were told to wait for further instruction and we assumed it was because they were still looking for these people, these active shooters. 20 dead, victoria, that death toll may rise. tell us about el paso and the reaction there has been so far to this. about el paso and the reaction there has been so far to thislj about el paso and the reaction there has been so far to this. i was born and raised here in el paso, and it
6:13 am
is the best place. i have always felt so safe, and it is home. i go to college and hour out of el paso, but i come home as often as i can. this is where my family is out, so just the reactions, just now it is starting to hit me all that has happened. 20 people is a large number, and it is so sad to know that these people are my people. these people are targeted, and it just breaks my heart. so now, people evenin just breaks my heart. so now, people even in my own family are saying that it even in my own family are saying thatitis even in my own family are saying that it is a privilege to have a license to carry a gun, weapon, because of these that happen. it only encourages people to go out there and get their license to carry, it is a necessity seeing these things happen. thank you for speaking to us this morning.
6:14 am
it is amazing, just listening to that. the immediate reaction is, maybe we need to go out and get it done, rather than tighter restrictions. from some people it is but it is a very divisive issue. borisjohnson has announced extra funding for nhs hospitals in england. the one—off payment of £1.8 billion will go towards new equipment and upgrades to 20 hospitals. let's talk to our political correspondent, jessica parker. sojessica, some will call it a welcome investment, but critics say it's still not enough? can we afford it? the conservative government is saying that because of the sound management of the economy, we can afford it. but i think there will be suspicion, because as you say there have been a number of big spending pledges, and maybe there will be some further borrowing down the line. the nhs says this is welcome, but it is not enough. the
6:15 am
labour party says it comes off the back of years of cuts to public services. in terms of the politics, theresa may already pledged more money, and for borisjohnson it may have significant meaning because of that pledge on the side of the bus during the brexit campaign. more broadly he is possibly trying to ta ke broadly he is possibly trying to take the fight to the brexit party and the labour party on public spending. all of these pledges will only spark further speculation that may be boris johnson only spark further speculation that may be borisjohnson thinks there is a general election around the corner. and for downing street would deny they are planning for any such scenario, but no doubt this new administration is not exactly taking as steady as she goes mid—term approach. they are making big, bold pledges that they hope will win over voters. let's get some weather this morning. susan has the latest.
6:16 am
we are watching these weather warnings up and down the country, particularly with the situation at whaley bridge. we only need some slow—moving showers in the wrong place which will contribute to the situation. it is a beautiful warming, —— morning, weather watchers are up, but the focus really on the weather today will be where we get the heavier showers. there will also be some decent sunshine to enjoy our times too. the corporate for the furthest showers is this area of low pressure, its centre coming in from the west of the uk, piling in bands of showers. already these showers are brought the best part of two inches of rain, so these showers mean business and they will become more widespread across scotland through the morning and then further south with a bit of help from the sunshine and warmth, will spark off localised thunderstorms as the day goes on. i
6:17 am
think possibly the southern half of wales and southern england staying dry, northern ireland still getting away with a largely fine day until we get to the afternoon. our warning stands from midday until 10pm because if anything it looks like the showers could become most likely as we go through the late afternoon and into the evening. you can get an indicator of that by the great greens showing up in the sale —— shower matters behind me, another band coming into northern ireland through the evening. many of them will shift offshore as we go into the overnight period, but some will linger across central and england scott —— is in scotland, and those clowns will go into northern england by the wetted —— end of the night. a website to the working week across wales in the south—west of quite humid and murky. from monday things becoming a little fresher as we pick up becoming a little fresher as we pick up more of a westerly breeze, a breezy day and more showers to contend with, perhaps the most frequent showers through the first
6:18 am
half of the day to the south of the uk, somewhat drier across scotland and northern ireland but then showers more widespread for scotland through monday afternoon, and a few possible for northern ireland. again, some are likely to be heavy and thundering. temperatures down a shade for monday, high—temperature isa shade for monday, high—temperature is a 22—23. low pressure welling away on tuesday, still the threat of some locally torrential downpours, the best part of 25 millimetres, an inch of rain falling under an hour and that is when we start to get the localised flooding problems. average temperatures on tuesday, perhaps 21-22, temperatures on tuesday, perhaps 21—22, looking further ahead into the week, if anything, it becomes a little warmer but still stays very u nsettled, little warmer but still stays very unsettled, perhaps towards the end of the week a bit of a break in the weather with some dry interludes. next weekend is looking like it could be a very soggy of our, so the situation remaining sensitive at the moment. situation remaining sensitive at the a lot of rain we don't want it. it
6:19 am
seems to be those early hours through monday morning, i will have to keep an eye on whaley bridge. particularly sensitive people in whaley bridge, you are watching bbc brea kfast, whaley bridge, you are watching bbc breakfast, it is coming up to 6:20am. and now on breakfast it's time for the film review. hello, and a very warm welcome to the film review on bbc news. here to take us through this week's cinema releases is jason. what have you been watching? jane, the action movie alert, two of the biggest stars of that genre go head to bald head. it's dwayne johnson and jason statham as hobbs and shaw in a fast and furious spin off. and a sequel to a video game that no one plays anymore, but can the flightless birds and the green pigs unite to lay an animated golden egg at the summer box office with angry birds 2?
6:20 am
and long—lasting female friendship is tested by a boozy night out in dublin and the arrival of the new man on a scene. that's animals. it's august. have you been having fun? it is fun. some of the movies are a bit strange and then you get some really good ones, what they called counter programming so i have some foreign gems a little later for you in the programme. but we will start with fast and furious hobbs and shaw, attack of the ampersands, as you can see, very rarely you get two in the title. action lovers will find themselves between a rock and a stath—place. see what i did there? dwayne johnson is hobbs and jason statham is shaw. they ‘baldly‘ stare each other down and like a couple of angry easter eggs, scowling at each other. one is recruited in la and one is recruited in london and together they come together, though they do not want to, they are angry about this
6:21 am
and they take on a bionic villain played by idris elba and he has invented a super virus that will take over the world. he's called brixton. and the trouble is it has been put inside shaw's sister, vanessa kirby who played princess margaret in the crown. doing something not very princess margarety here, abseiling down the cheesegrater in a chase sequence. as you do. now or never. i'm more of a "now" type of guy! on my three? sure. one, two, three! no one tells me what to do! music.
6:22 am
laughs. and i guess it's kind of like that for two hours? about there? two hours, fast and furious. does what it says on the tin, and it's a very popular franchise and i really enjoyed the last few with the car chases, normally they go from rio and tokyo. here we are in ukraine, london, although i did not recognise the city and quite a bit of it was shot in glasgow and i thought i didn't recognise london in that one. they go to ukraine, samoa, and there are car chases with helicopters and drones and things explode all over the place and they have to get the virus out of her or it will explode, and they want to destroy the human race but hobbs and shaw want to save the world. it's not quite as fun as perhaps it thinks it's going to be, the dialogue between hobbs and shaw doesn't really sparkle, i think the script thought this would be funny but jason statham and the rock seem to face off and neither wants to crack and neither wants to give way. no—one wants to give anything,
6:23 am
idris elba wants to be macho in it as well and the person who comes out on top is vanessa kirby. they asked me not to tell you there is a lot of celebrity cameos in the film. i am not allowed to reveal them, as if this would perk it up. oh, the film—makers said that? don't let on that there are people like dame helen mirren... is it because you are in it? i wish i was. that alone does not really perk it up. there is a lot of furious, and not enough fun. 0k. is the next film any more fun? i'm guessing it's aimed at children? is that a fair supposition? angry birds 2, the movie. it's aimed at children, drunk students, or people who play video games on their phone. so basically all the same. this is an animation, the first film was a surprise hit so of course there will be a sequel. it's very different to the first one. the first one had the birds on one island being played pranks
6:24 am
by the green pigs on another island. the plot is really not complicated and i don't know why i'm bothering to explain it. then there is an eagle on the other island who is really angry and she is lobbing ice bombs at both islands and the birds and the pigs have to team up to defeat the angry eagle. so it's like a war mission movie or heist movie. where eagles dare. that's my film reference. the plot should not be complicated, it is august! it isn't. what i suggest is you let it wash over you because the bright colours and animation, it is quite funny and you have a great voice cast, bill hader, peter dinklage, jason sudeikis, leslie jones. you have lots of pop songs from eltonjohn to axel f and dance off between eagles and a puppet bird who looks like big bird. and there is a plot with hatchlings who steal eggs and they are voiced by the daughters of nicole kidman and keith urban. not saying that nepotism doesn't work in hollywood. get your children young into the hollywood scene. it's deliriously silly and i surrendered myself to the sugar rush of the visuals and rather enjoyed it and my children did as well. good. that is a good recommendation.
6:25 am
your third pick this week is based on a novel which i am afraid i haven't read and i am coming at it cold. i will let you into a secret, i have not read it either. it is written by emma jane unsworth, a big hit, and she actually wrote the script as well so there is a connection there. normally you do not do that, and you usually surrender your control but she has actually done a really good job of getting the script right. this film has been described as being like a female withnail and i, and you can see why because it is about two girls who have been living together in dublin and very close relationship and they fuel each other‘s drug and alcohol taking and they stall each other‘s development but they are very co—dependent and very witty and very funny together. very hard to break into this relationship, but the impending 30th birthdays loom and family responsibilities and the arrival of the new fella named jim puts this relationship under threat. hey. hi.
6:26 am
interesting choice. i suppose i'm intrigued by all these people, jotting down notes in their little notebooks not actually getting anywhere. how do you know they are not getting anywhere? because they're still here, trying, jotting down notes in their little notebooks every day. plus, it's the only place open this early with the decent wine. but the trying is the thing. i've always thought we're not defined by who we are but who we try to be. i always tried too hard at school. i always did everything too hard. who said that to you? i'm only a pianist because i sit down and do it every day. so, leave them alone. and holliday grainger, who we were talking about not
6:27 am
that long ago on this programme... in tell it to the bees, where she did another good accent, i do not know what her real accent is. she had a very good irish accent in tell it to the bees. another female—powered film and as i say like withnail and i for girls, which is a very good thing. you can feel that in the sketchiness of the untidyness of their relationship. i really like this, a lot. i thought the relationship was really well done and the director, sophie hyde, is good on the atmosphere and the sensitivity of a relationship that is blooming but cannot last and is going to change and someone will getjealous. holliday grainger is fantastic in it, she has this great charm to her and she is good at doing that first flush of white wine and the colour returns to her cheeks. i thought it was very well done, and a real cult classic in the making, this film. that is interesting, and i look forward to it and i expect lots of people will be. i am struck by your best out this week, because i cannot believe it is 30 years! 30 years since do the right thing?
6:28 am
and almost to the day, this film change the world in several ways. the first film review i ever wrote for my university magazine, which is why i do thisjob, is because of this film, but even on a grander scale it changed the world. do you know how? i do not but you can tell me. michelle obama and barack obama went to see this film on theirfirst date. and that is where they forged their political sensibilities and their colour and got all the way to the white house and this film literally did change the world. it's by spike lee, and of course it is set over one boiling hot night in new york in front of sal's pizzeria where mookey the delivery boy, played by spike lee, gets involved and it boils up to a race riot, which is the main thing, but really it is about the visuals of spike lee. but it's beautiful to look at as well, it evokes — and i watched it recently because we had our own heatwave here, and you can feel the heat of brooklyn almost coming off off the screen and the fabulous bright colours. it is terrific. the dialogue and the soundtrack is amazing. fight the power by public enemy,
6:29 am
an all—time hip—hop track which is a powerful start, and rosie perez dancing to it. it's one of my favourite films of all time and one of the best films ever made, and spike lee is still doing this, if you watch netflix, he has two seasons of she's gotta have it on there, which is an update of his originalfilm and that is brilliant as well. still looking at brooklyn that has very changed in those 30 years, and the gentrification that is going on, but still talking about black issues and black history, i think it is a brilliant film and it's out and the sentiments, 4k restorations ——the cinemas, 4k restorations of those colours you talked about, they are even brighter and more ferocious and hot. fantastic, 30 year rerelease of do the right thing. quick thought about dvd, streaming? there is a film called the chambermaid which is set in mexico city. i suppose a companion piece to alfonso cuaron's roma which nearly won the oscar. won a bafta. it's about a hotel cleaner in mexico city and we see her working in the hotel, the divide between wealthy and poor customers and clients and guests and the hotel staff, the picture of her is in the laundry room there, we see her trying to work her way up this hotel ladder. i thought it was brilliant and a really great performance
6:30 am
and directed very well by lila aviles, her first film. a gem to find online. thank you very much, good to see you and see you again soon. enjoy your cinema going. that is for this week. see you next time. goodbye. hello, this is breakfast with christian fraser and nina warhurst. good morning, here's a summary of today's main stories from bbc news: at least 20 people have been killed and another 26 injured in the latest mass shooting in the united states. the massacre happened in a mall in the city of el paso in texas, where many families were out shopping. a 21—year—old man has been arrested and police are looking into whether he deliberately targeted the hispanic community.
6:31 am
disgusting, intolerable, not texan. we are going to aggressively prosecuted both as capital murder, but also as a hate crime, which is exactly what it appears to be without having seen all of the evidence yet. another 55 homes have been evacuated near a dam in derbyshire which is in danger of collapsing. police say it's because more heavy rain is forecast. 1,500 residents have already left their homes and emergency services are working round the clock to shore up the structure, but the risk of collapse remains at "critical level". more talks are planned today to try and stop a strike at heathrow by engineers, firefighters and security staff. 177 flights have already been cancelled on monday and tuesday after a union vote rejected a pay offer. heathrow has not said which flights will be cancelled, and said passengers should check with their airlines to see if they are affected. borisjohnson has announced extra funding for nhs hospitals in england. the one off payment
6:32 am
of £1.8 billion will go towards new equipment and upgrades to 20 hospitals. writing in the sunday times, mrjohnson said he was "determined to deliver" the promises of the brexit referendum campaign and increase nhs spending. a french inventor is hoping to cross the english channel this morning on a jet—powered hoverboard. it's franky za pata's second attempt to cross the 20—mile stretch of water. he tried it last month but fell into the sea when he failed to land on a refuelling platform. he's due to set off around now. we will see if we can get you some pictures and will bring them as and when we get them. do you think that is his real name? it is a great name foran is his real name? it is a great name for an inventor. hugh is here. do
6:33 am
you know what the best thing about brea kfast you know what the best thing about breakfast is? when you go home you have an excuse to sit on the sofa all day and watch the cricket. i make that excuse regardless! it is one of those days today where at the end of it you will wonder why you we re end of it you will wonder why you were so enthusiastic at the beginning of it. the guy we see behind us, steve smith, is crucial to england's hopes. notjust for this test but to have any chance of winning any of the ashes. 142 is his average in his last ten innings against england. england's hopes rest on whether they can get rid of this guy. it'll be an intriguing morning session on day four of the first ashes test with the match finely poised. england made 374 in their first innings at edgbaston. a lead of 90 runs, they managed to take three australian wickets but what they would give
6:34 am
for the fourth to be steve smith. our sports correspondent joe wilson has more. dress code optional. some of them made you think why, and others how? no ashes without fire and no england without burns. yes, he was back. stretch, refocus, and try to find inspiration again. it took a sharp catch from the wicket—keeper to finally get rid of rory burns, but his 133 was an immense personal contribution. who would add to it? batting suddenly seemed baffling. chris woakes attacked. in the context of the match, as england built a lead, this shot seemed almost worth more than six. nice try in the stands. crowd fully engaged, suggesting david warner, former
6:35 am
ball—tampering, had sandpaper with him. empty pockets, he showed them. the crowd was loud enough even for a passerby to hear, as england bold, 90 runs ahead. david warner tried not to hit this one but on england's review, there was the evidence, it brushed about. he was out. farewell, old friend. england took two more wickets, moeen ali struck, then ben stokes wickets, moeen ali struck, then ben sto kes got wickets, moeen ali struck, then ben stokes got another one. like an inflata ble stokes got another one. like an inflatable president pursued by mexicans, very edgbaston. steve smith withstood everything. medical check ok. australia 34 ahead and ready for more. obviously steve is a very good player, and we will try to get him out, but when you get a new batsmen at the crease you attack them as much as possible. that is when you
6:36 am
are most vulnerable. we saw that in the first innings, built a pressure at the other end and put pressure on the other matters, and we will try to do that again. we will certainly be looking to get steve out if we can. red bull's max verstappen will start a formula one race from pole for the first time at the hungarian grand prix later. despite seven race wins it's taken the dutchman until his fifth season in the sport to start a race from the front. he broke the track record in hungary and will start ahead of the mercedes pair of valtteri bottas and championship leader lewis hamilton. it's incredible, this one was still missing, and you know it is always going to be hard in qualifying, but we managed to do it. of course, the car was flying in qualifying, it was incredible. england's bronte law and charley hull remain in contention going into the final day of the women's british open at woburn, but defending champion georgia hall's 74 leaves her 10 behind the lead. hull, though, recovered from dropping shots early with four birdies on her back nine for a round of 70, while law is still to drop a shot at this year's event.
6:37 am
both are tied for seventh place, on nine under, that's five shots behind the leader who is the 20 year—old hinako shibuno from japan, she's playing in herfirst major championship. just going to go out and have fun. just going to go out and have fun. just going to have fun, another day at the office, and pretend i am out there with my friends playing golf. i will make as many birds as possible, i am i will make as many birds as possible, lam hitting i will make as many birds as possible, i am hitting the i will make as many birds as possible, lam hitting the ball, creating chances, there is no reason why i can't go out and create a really low number. rangers start their scottish premiership campaign later when they face kilmarnock. they're looking to stop celtic winning a ninth league title this season. and they've already got some catching up to do as far as goal difference is concerned. yesterday neil lennon's side started their defence with a 7—0 win against stjohnstone. ryan christie hit a hat trick. elsewhere there were wins for hibernian and ross county. fulham say they will take

the "strongest possible action" after their defender cyrus christie claimed his sister was hit and racially abused by fans during their defeat at barnsley. christie posted on social media after the game to condemn the fans' behaviour, saying: "regardless how you felt about the result, your actions are shameful." fulham have launched an investigation into what happened. that story emerged after fulham's 1—0 defeat to barnsley on the opening day of the english football league season. fulham of course were relgated from the premier league last year while barnsley were promoted from league one. luke thomas scored barnsley‘s winner. full details of yesterday's results are over on the bbc sport website. and salford city made a winning start to life as a football league club, beating stevenage 2—0. mani dieseruvwe scored in each half for salford, who have won four promotions in five seasons since being taken over by a group that includes some famous manchester united teammates. the curtain raiser for next week's premier league season is at wembley this afternoon when liverpool take on manchester city in the community shield.
6:39 am
it's the first of seven potential trophies liverpool could win this season, but it's fair to say their manager isn't getting particularly excited. you have to be ready, that is enough from a motivational point of view. it's nice to win it than not to win it, because we didn't win all of the finals but most of them, that's true. but at the end we will not do a parade afterwards. christian fraser has just changed his afternoon plans from the cricket! the rugby football league and super league say they're appalled by clashes between catala ns dragons and warrington wolves fans towards the end of their match in france yesterday. tempers flared on the field and off it with around ten minutes of the game to go, two warrington players and one from catalans were sent off after a brawl. there were also disturbing scenes in the crowd as fans then clashed in the stands. both clubs have condemned the incident. the match itself saw catalans beat warrington by 30 points to 10, meaning st helens win the league leaders shield.

the ridelondon women's classique, which is made up of 20 laps of a 3.5 kilometre loop in central london, came to a dramatic finish dutch rider lorena wiebes won the race after her compatriot, kirsten wild, veered from her sprinting line in the closing metres, causing a huge crash that brought down half the peloton. wild came through on the inside to win, but after a review she was penalised for her sudden change of direction. there was disappointment for britain's alice barnes, who finished more than three minutes behind now, riding a bicycle and a motorbike can be dangerous enough, but what happens when you're thrown from your bike at up to a hundred miles an hour? well, this is what happened to south african rider steven odendaal, and he somehow managed to keep control of his bike during qualifying for the moto2 czech grand prix, keeping it upright, and eventually bringing his bike to a standstill.
6:41 am
this is why motorbike riders do not web rogues, because the amount of soul he must‘ve burnt off those boots he is wearing is extraordinary. i have to say that i don't know exactly how fast that is, but what it would have done to any normal parachute is incredible. but what it would have done to any normal parachute is incrediblem shows how much upperbody strength must have, because you wouldn't necessarily know that about them, that it necessarily know that about them, thatitis necessarily know that about them, that it is necessarily to be an athlete. that is a dancing partner nobody wants because they are doing different steps to the ones you want them to! well done to him for keeping himself and the bike save, the bike is probably more expensive! anyone who has had to clear out their childhood home after the death of their parents will know how hard it can be. but when photographer aram balakjian faced that task, he found a way to bring the empty rooms back to life. take a look at this.

beautiful memories. talk us through what this project was all about, because you have done what a lot of people might do, take photos of your home, but with previous photos in the foreground. as i was clearing house i got the sense of going from a highly emotionally charged place, all the memories and things in the rooms, and as i dismantled it and it became an empty house, i kind of just had this feeling of time passing, and the idea that the space is not really what i was wanting to hold onto, it was the memories. so, i kind of wanted to convey that somehow and i thought that having a photo in the empty space would give that contrast of the reality of the space but also what is in our mind about that space which is the memories that happened there. you took quite a lot of photos, didn't
6:44 am
you? i took about 3000. do you have a favourite? a lot of them were duplicate so that was just reiterating... what about this one? this is your mother, is it? that is lovely, because it is a view for me, looking from the utility room out into the garden, seeing her there, andi into the garden, seeing her there, and i really love the way it looked... they were very talented, where they? yes, they were reasonably well—known artist and printmakers. they were really talented. what really strikes me is if you are doing that, taking the second photograph, was it quite a cathartic process that made it easier to say goodbye to the bricks and mortar, if you like? it was. it was a nice way to have closure. i think over the process of clearing, which took me quite a few months, i
6:45 am
had sort of come to let go of the physicality of the house, but this was a nice way to kind of take the memories of that with me and have a final end and handed over to a new family. quite sobering as well. we have just done it with my grandfather and we think everything we accumulate through our lives and you can't take it with you, and it goes. it really is this, the memories, that are the most important thing. what do you think your father would make of it? because he was an artist as well, wasn't he? yes, they were both artists, and it is quite ironic that in orderfor it artists, and it is quite ironic that in order for it to artists, and it is quite ironic that in orderfor it to happen artists, and it is quite ironic that in order for it to happen they couldn't be here to see it. maybe thatis couldn't be here to see it. maybe that is the last gift to me, as it were. i have so many questions and i'm glad you are coming back later in the programme, so i get to ask them all! it is a lovely story, thank you you can see more of this project on

his website and instagram. here's susan with a look at this morning's weather. you are watching that weather system for us? it is notjust about today, the forecast for the week ahead and into next weekend, it looks like some spots could get a lot of rain. we are talking about showers and showers tend to come in bands and there were gaps in between them, so not all areas will be affected by the heaviest downpours. we are getting some beautiful weather watchers in this morning, a lot of sunshine to get the day under way but that sunshine will increasingly perhaps become an enemy as a day pans out because it injects some energy in the atmosphere and then we have this cloud band which is a weather front and that is what will be for those showers up across the uk later in the day. we have already seen heavy rain across the scotland, a couple of inches nearly falling in a couple of inches nearly falling in a space of time as the showers move
6:47 am
in this morning. the showers blooming if you like through the afternoon across northern england, the picture improves the northern ireland after a wet night, many parts of southern england and wales will be fine into the afternoon, some isolated showers towards the south—west, but is this region from the north midlands through into southern and central scotland that the met office is particularly concerned about, the heavier thunderstorms developing today, the warning stands from midday till 10pm, and ifanything warning stands from midday till 10pm, and if anything perhaps the worst of the weather coming in through the late afternoon into the evening. we will see another band of showers running into northern ireland by then as well, so some of them will be heavy and some spots could see 25—30 millimetres of rain in the space of an hour or so. some of the heavier showers shift offshore into the small hours but many continue across scotland and that next band pushes them from the west first thing on monday. quite murky as well, with some low cloud and mist around first thing monday,
6:48 am
and mist around first thing monday, a wet start to wales in the south—west, still looking pretty showery across scotland as well. still low pressure driving the whole thing, a lot of unsettled weather to come throughout the first half of the week, as that low tracks in from the week, as that low tracks in from the west. showers to the south first thing monday, brighter later in the day, showers for northern ireland, scotla nd day, showers for northern ireland, scotland on and off throughout, and againa scotland on and off throughout, and again a chance of some across northern england. a bit fresher tomorrow with a westerly breeze, 21-23 the tomorrow with a westerly breeze, 21—23 the typical top on tuesday an action replay, more showers spreading across the uk with a real focus across the northern half of britain, to the south of the showers more scattered, and i would like to tell you that the picture improves, but here is the outlook, and you can see even as the week pans out there are some periods of respite, but quite short lived and then further heavy rain at times on the forecast, and at the moment next weekend looks like it could be particularly problematic as well. thank you susan, problematic across
6:49 am
the country, we are looking out for the country, we are looking out for the weather in whaley bridges afternoon, as susan was saying it looks pretty wet, we will catch up with our correspondence there later on. now on breakfast — here's this week's edition of click. i love food. who doesn't? and like everything else in our lives, food has become globalised. we have access to a multitude of cuisines. out of season, a thing of the past. but the true cost of this indulgence is becoming apparent with a spiralling public health crisis and environmental destruction.
6:50 am
i've been to a facility in north london where our discarded food ends up. in this country, household waste makes up for at least 70% of what's thrown away. currently only half the uk's food waste is being processed. if it all came to a place like this it could power 350,000 households. this place receives about 30 lorries a day. full of waste, mostly coming from homes. this whole operation is powered by the waste that comes in here. and, surprisingly, there is actually only one machine. that's because what arrives here is just food waste in plastic bags. so all that needs to happen is the plastic be separated from the food. but that shows just how important it is that we do our bit at home first. after the food is removed from the bags, a kind of soup is created.
6:51 am
it even has its own recipe to make itjust right for the next bit of the process. these tanks behind me are actually called the digesters and they work like the human digestive system, breaking down food injust the same way. in fact, the temperature inside there is 37 degrees — the same temperature as the human gut. once the food is broken down, the gas produced is turned into electricity and the rest is sent as manure to the surrounding farms. but there is no denying that aside from the waste, we need to be creating more food to be able to feed the world's growing population. and to be able to do that, we need to find ways of creating sustainable and efficient farming. so we took a trip to the orkney islands off the coast of scotland to see how 5g is being used to do just that. 5g networks are starting to pop up in uk cities. but for many rural areas, even getting a basic signal remains a challenge.
6:52 am
including in the orkney islands off the north coast of scotland, with a population of just 22,000 people. in the past, an argument against setting up mobile networks in remote locations was the high cost of infrastructure, relative to low population. but this could all be about to change. in a revolutionary move, the uk's communications regulator, ofcom, is opening up part of the airwaves, or spectrum, to anyone who wants to use it. at cost price on a first—come first—served basis. mobile operators want to provide service right across the country. some places don't use all the spectrum, sometimes it might be available for others to use. we are hoping innovations will come out of it and new industries will develop. industries will not be constrained by bits of wire, and will be able to use radio. experiments to build local networks are already under way. the 5g rural first trial has brought 5g capabilities to different projects across the orkney islands.
6:53 am
one of the most remote and under—connected parts of the uk. but while remote, the islands contribute significantly to uk exports of salmon and whiskey. salmon is one of the uk's biggest food exports, worth more than £700 million a year. many salmon farms are located offshore in scottish waters. with up to 25,000 fish in each cage, there is a lot of data that needs to be collected. this box monitors sensors in the water that include temperature sensors, salinity sensors and oxygen sensors, so it is seeing how oxygen is going to the fish. the oxygen levels affect when and how much the fish are fed. automatic feeding systems work off that data on a wi—fi network over a 5g connection, with four feeders running at once. just did that feed off your laptop? yes. i am connected to the barge computer via screen connect which is a total benefit to us because we can be out on site and ready to feed the fish
6:54 am
rather than have a man just sitting and feeding them all day. he can be out working with us and helping us. and some processes are still done by hand, like checking for sea lice. that could change as well. we will be doing health checks on them and make sure they are nice and clean. that one is beautiful. so if you had a 5g connection you may not need to do this, where you remove the fish from the water? no. we would have hd cameras that could monitor the condition. 56 brings a couple of elements that maybe we didn't have with 4g. of course it has higher bandwidth. but it also brings low latency, meaning that the time the signal takes to go back and forth becomes much much faster. we can deploy it in areas that we may not have been able to before. it is all now coming together into a single infrastructure, providing solutions that maybe over 46 was only a dream. while only 22,000 people live
6:55 am
in orkney, a further 200,000 tourists come to visit its whiskey distilleries and famous neolithic sites every year. many arrive by cruise ship including this disney one, dropping off hundreds of passengers. by selling access to bespoke wi—fi networks over 5g, the local community could pay for the masts needed to get network access all year round. so we are standing in the middle of the ring of brodgar and you can see two masts from here. if you look over here, there are two masts up there. we are running from that right now. fantastic. can we see? so... that's us connected now. that is the full signal. number 15 is queueing up. signal strength is impressive. other applications like augmented reality tour guides are being tested, which tourists can also buy while visiting. is it possible to see you have a signal or a connection to your network here?
6:56 am
no, ijust have emergency calls. ihave... no 4g, only 3g. this is a 5g connection. oh, wow! is this something you would want to use? yes. especially if you have children as well. i think it's a good idea. for important sites at this, yes. the 5g network is also being tested on windfarms. the orkney islands produce over 130% of its electricity demand through renewable energy, selling the excess back to the national grid. with sustained winds over 100 mph during the winter and farms in remote locations, having sensors delivering data in real—time to a central point can help keep the turbines running in dangerous conditions. these turbines are now connected to a smart grid which mixes renewable energy with battery technology. before, they were connected by copper wire to telephone lines, making them vulnerable to damage from lightning strike. we're hoping that the 5g system will minimise the amount of outages that the project can have. you can imagine that
6:57 am
if we were connected by a simple wire, that can fail and that will stop generation. and we do not want that. we want to be able to provide power whenever it is windy and send it to scotland where it can be used. all these projects are still in the pilot stage. but with ofcom opening up the airwaves, they could soon become reality. in some places like orkney where spectrum is not intensively used, we want people to be able to use spectrum as a way of deploying new services, be it in rural areas where people are doing new and innovative things or inside factories or enterprise offices as we go toward more industrial it and new 5g services we just want people to be able to do it and do it. ofcom will assess each bid for parts of shared spectrum by ofcom ensure there is no interference with other users. it will start taking bids for these shared case uses towards the end of the year.
6:58 am
so we have seen how new ways of farming and even creating food in a lab can solve one problem — but we still need to be wasting less at home. so i have been taking a look at some technology that aims to help. these smart tags and containers are still in preproduction. they are designed to ping you reminders about your leftovers. as for your supermarket shopping, you can track that using apps like kitche or nowaste, which alert you to food that is about to go off, and keep track of how much your wastage is causing you. snapping a picture of your receipt creates a digital pantry. kitche did seem better at deciphering the text than nowaste. kitche also suggests recipes for cooking soon to expire food, although you would need to add more ingredients as well. the result made this seem a bit of a novelty to me. we've seen a few smart fridges that
6:59 am
let you take a peek inside remotely, but those will set you back thousands. fridgecam is trying to give the same convenience for a couple of hundred quid. the idea is that it will snap a picture every time you close your fridge door, so you can see what is inside from anyway. it also uses image recognition to keep an eye on the product — that is the aim anyway. in reality, in this type of fridge at least, the camera viewjust wasn't wide enough to show more than one or two shelves. as for those snaps, it will tell you who has been opening the fridge. these apps may encourage us to think about how we treat food a bit more, but changing our lifetime shopping and eating habits might be a harder nut to crack.
7:00 am
that's it for the short version of our sustainable food special. the full programme can be found on the bbc iplayer. you can keep track of the team on youtube, facebook, instagram and twitter at @bbcclick, and of course we will be back next week. 01:00:16,646 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 thanks for watching.
