take a time before as well. it will take a time before the rain clears away from the far south of scotland, perhaps just dragging that prospect down towards the north of wales and maybe also towards the north midlands. when you keep the sunshine in the south—east, high temperature 25, to the north a fresh feel for sure, 13—15dc or something of that order, wind moderating, low pressure eventually moving over towards scandinavia. moving from sunday into monday, pushing those fronts away and it opens the doorfor all of pushing those fronts away and it opens the door for all of us to see those fresh conditions already there any northern part of british ties on monday, becoming a little bit more extensive during tuesday. perhaps a little bit of a fresh feel, but what you take away from this synopsis is that there is a lot of dry weather in the forthcoming week. goodbye.

and behaving appallingly during the eu referendum campaign. in his first major interview since stepping down, the former prime minister admitted the brexit result left him feeling depressed. in another blow to the conservatives, a former minister defects to the liberal democrats. it comes as their leader, jo swinson, proposes cancelling
10:35 pm
brexit without another referendum. also tonight... a giant tree of africa has fallen. tributes are paid to the former president of zimbabwe, robert mugabe, despite a low turnout at his funeral. i want remember what it's like to feel free... and by doing that... i wa nt to feel free... and by doing that... i want to empower so many other people who are in exactly the same position as me. former wales rugby captain gareth thomas reveals he is hiv positive, saying he wants to "break the stigma" around the condition drone attacks in saudi arabia cause severe disruption to oil production at two major facilities. and why police are looking for this 18—carat solid gold toilet.
10:36 pm
a very good evening. david cameron, the former prime minister has accused boris johnson and michael gove of trashing his government, with what he describes as their appalling behaviour during the brexit referendum. in his first major interview since leaving downing street three years ago, he told the times newspaper that the referendum result left him hugely depressed and that he knew some people would neverforgive him. our political correspondent, chris mason, reports. it's 2015. the smiles of victory. reporter: are you glad to have won at last? david cameron wins the election for the conservatives, in which he promised an eu referendum. a year later, the smiles have gone. he backed remain in the referendum and lost.
10:37 pm
and resigned. i love this country and i feel honoured to have served it. and now, for the first time since, he's talking about it. in his memoirs, the former prime minister says: "there are those who will never forgive me for holding the referendum or for failing to deliver the outcome." "i deeply regret the outcome and accept that my approach failed." "the decisions i took contributed to that failure." "i failed." sir craig oliver worked with david cameron in downing street. it is absolutely the case that david cameron feels a real sense of having made mistakes in the referendum campaign, having got quite a few things wrong. and he says that he failed. what he doesn't think, though, is that he shouldn't have done it. and the reason for that is i think he thought it was almost inevitable. ukip were on the rise, doing extremely well. we were also in a situation where a huge number of conservative mps were rebelling all the time. the political pond, as you mayjust have noticed, is choppy enough
10:38 pm
as it is at the moment. and these memoirs represent another brick logged in for good measure. but as extraordinary as our politics are at the moment, it's still quite something when a former resident here accuses the current one from the same party of having a rather casual attitude towards the truth. "leaving the truth at home" is the accusation mr cameron makes of how some of this government's most seniorfigures behaved as part of the leave campaign. reporter: did you leave the truth at home, sir? well, mr gove did leave home today, but wasn't leaving us with any insight into what he makes of his old boss. reporter: did you behave appallingly, sir? he and boris johnson will no doubt get other opportunities to tell us, though. we'll be seeing plenty of david cameron this week — and there are more revelations to come. and chrisjoins me now.
10:39 pm
additional details being published, extracts from this book in the sunday times, david cameron openly accuses boris johnson sunday times, david cameron openly accuses borisjohnson of self—interested opportunism in backing leave in the referendum for what he thought were career ends. the conclusion i am left with is that you risk an outcome he did not believe in because it would help his political career. listen to this... even more critical of michael gove, now in cabinet minister position... i could not believe what he was saying, michael gove, the conservative liberal minded intellectual, had become like nigel farage warning that the entire turkish population was about to come to britain. neither mr gove nor mr johnson have responded tonight. the former conservative mp and universities' minister, sam gyimah, has defected to the liberal democrats. the party leader introduced their newest mp at the annual conference in bournemouth this evening. he was one of 21 tories who were expelled when they rebelled against borisjohnson to block a no deal brexit. mr gyimah becomes the sixth mp
10:40 pm
tojoin the lib dems in the last three months. his defection comes as their leader jo swinson proposed cancelling brexit without another referendum. former wales rugby captain gareth thomas has revealed he is hiv positive. he says he wants to learn more about his illness and hopes by revealing his diagnosis he can help "break the stigma" around the condition. i want to remember what it was like to feel free. and by doing that... ..i want to empower so many other people who are in exactly the same position as me. african leaders and thousands of others gathered to pay their respects at the fineral of zimba bwe's former president, robert mugabe. his funeral was held in a 60,000 capacity stadium that was only a quarter full. the 95—year—old was in power
10:41 pm
for almost four decades before being ousted in the 2017 coup after years of violence, economic chaos and corruption. hyper—inflation was a big marker of his presidency. while the currency was relatively stable in the beginning, controversial policies led the central bank to print more money to cope, meaning inflation soared to an estimated peak of 89.7 sextillion percent in november 2008. poverty is also rife — over a fifth of the population live on less than £1.50 a day. our senior africa correspondent, anne soy, reports. a state farewell for robert mugabe. the highest honour in zimbabwe. a country he led to independence and ruled for close to four decades. family, including his wife, grace, as well as current and former leaders from more than a dozen african countries paid their last respects.
10:42 pm
they call him a pan—africanist and a comrade. a giant tree of africa has fallen. to zimbabweans, he was a divisive figure. for many, a man to celebrate and — today — commemorate. but for many more, he was a man who oversaw the economic ruin of his country, which has been plagued with hyperinflation and social instability. zimbabwe was once a prosperous country. some called it the breadbasket of africa. but the controversial land reforms and subsequent sanctions forced the economy into a tailspin. and even today, many people are still suffering. because of this, many chose not to attend the funeral. take, take, take everything. so we have nothing. we are educated but we live from day to day.
10:43 pm
life now is a bit difficult. but for me, i cannot blame mugabe. we have to solve the thing among ourselves. robert mugabe is honoured here as the country's founding father. he is celebrated for his progressive education policies. but for unleashing violence against his people and refusing to leave power before he was toppled, an indelible blot remains on his legacy. anne soy, bbc news, harare. two of the world's most significant oil facilities have been set ablaze in a wave of drone attacks in saudi arabia. they were carried out by the houthis — the rebel group the saudis have been fighting in yemen since civil war broke out there four years ago. the attacks happened at abqaiq and khurais. tonight, america has blamed iran for the strikes. our world affairs correspondent, paul adams, reports.
10:44 pm
audacious attacks on the heart of saudi arabia's economy. the abqaiq oil processing plant — one of the world's largest — engulfed in flames, attacked by drones. the kingdom's second largest oilfield, khurais, also hit. the smoke visible from space, caught by a nasa satellite. yemen's houthi rebels are celebrating. translation: this mission comes as part of our legitimate and natural right to react to the crimes of the aggression and its continuous blockade on our country for the past five years. aramco, owned by the saudi state, is one of the world's biggest oil companies. khurais produces around 1% of the world's oil. and abqaiq is capable of processing 7% of global supply. some reports say half the kingdom's oil production will be affected. this could impact oil prices in the coming days. in recent months, houthis have carried out a series of strikes
10:45 pm
on saudi arabia's oil facilities, using missiles and drones, but the latest attacks are among their most destructive. this is embarrassing for saudi arabia. in this hugely uneven conflict, the houthis have once again demonstrated their ability to cause damage and fear in a war that shows no sign of ending. paul adams, bbc news. with all the sport now, here's karthi at the bbc sport centre. good evening. england's cricketers have put themselves in a commanding position after the third day of the fifth and final ashes test against australia. and it has been quite a week forjoe denly, who dashed home to be present at the birth of his daughter then almost made another milestone — just missing out on his maiden century. but he helped england to a lead of 382 runs. joe wilson reports from the oval. attention swarms around the ashes, you can get lost between the hope
10:46 pm
and the hype. but sometimes it all falls into place. what a week for joe denly. he batted today, safe in the knowledge his new daughter had been safely delivered and what is more important than that? suddenly this was a new man, his aggressive approach seem to shock the australians. stand by for another surprise — ben stokes dropped and by steve smith. no one can see the cricket ball better than smith, normally... england's batsmen were on top and even the weather was helping, ashes test match in mid—september? yes, you spot any clouds on the horizon? just a low—flyi ng clouds on the horizon? just a low—flying ben stokes. that shock to come to 50, some of the crowd celebrated with the enthusiasm of children, some in the crowd were, in fa ct, children, some in the crowd were, in fact, children. i don't think that isjoe fact, children. i don't think that is joe denly‘s! fact, children. i don't think that isjoe denly‘s! his first fact, children. i don't think that is joe denly‘s! his first ashes series at 33 and now he was 94 but out. his best score for england but
10:47 pm
still a disappointment — england would have loved to see him get 100. it isa would have loved to see him get 100. it is a match that matters and with buttler batting fluidly, the english lead stretched into match—winning territory, 382 ahead by the close, far enough? just one thing — steve smith is still playing. he doesn't make many mistakes. wow! saturday evening catching? he will have one last go at batting. joe wilson, bbc news, the oval. there were some rather surprising results in the premier league today, but it is time to pop out of the room if you don't want to know what happened as match of the day follows soon on bbc one. champions manchester city were beaten by newly promoted norwich city 3—2. it's manchester city's first defeat in the premier league since january, while the norwich manager daniel farker, described it as a "special day". manchester city are now five points behind league leaders liverpool, who beat newcastle 3—1. tottenham were 4—0 winners over crystal palace. chelsea beat wolves 5—2. there were also wins for manchester united and southampton.
10:48 pm
brighton and burnley drew 1—1. celtic have maintained their 100% winning start to the season. the scottish premiership champions beat hamilton academical1—0 fora fifth consecutive league victory, which keeps celtic three points clear of rangers, who beat livingston 3—1 today. europe and the united states are tied at eight points each ahead of the final day of golf‘s solheim cup. strong winds made conditions tough at gleneagles and contributed to slow play from all of the fourball matches, with three of them going to the final hole. in fading light, america's daniella kang holed her putt to win the last match of the day. tomorrow's 12 singles matches will decide the title. frankie dettori's famous celebration was on show at doncaster after he won the prestigious saint leger race on logician. the win maintains logician‘s unbeaten record, which now stretches to five successive victories. it was also dettori's sixth win in the group one race. there's more on the bbc sport website, including news
10:49 pm
of the winners of cycling's vuelta and the tour of britain. and before we go — it's 18 carat solid gold, said to be worth nearly £5 million and oxfordshire police are on the hunt for it. sarah campbell has the details. it's called america and went on display in new york's guggenheim museum, where than 100,000 people experienced this fully functioning artwork. relocated to one britain's most famous stately homes, blenheim palace, visitors were to be allowed to spend three minutes alone with the toilet, doing whatever came naturally. the exhibit itself was designed to be a reflection on the american dream and the idea of something ordinarily unattainable in fact potentially being there in a way that you could touch. the toilet was designed to make that physical. just two days after going on display, the toilet was stolen, causing significant flood damage
10:50 pm
to the palace. we believe they used at least two vehicles during the offence and they left the scene at around 4:50am. a 66—year—old man has been arrested in connection with this incident and he is currently in police custody. blenheim palace say they are relieved no one was hurt and are urging anyone with information to contact the police. sarah campbell, bbc news. you can see more on all of today's stories on the bbc news channel. that's all from me. goodnight.
10:51 pm
10:52 pm
hello. this is bbc news. we'll bring you a full paper review at 11:30 — i'll bejoined by nigel nelson, political editor at the sunday people and sunday mirror and political commentator jo phillips to look at tomorrow's front pages in depth. first, here's a quick look at some of tomorrow's papers. the mail on sunday's headline: "we'll break free from the eu like the incredible hulk". in an interview with the paper — borisjohnson says that if brexit negotiations break down —
10:53 pm
he'll ignore the vote to avoid no—deal — adding — ‘the madder hulk gets, the stronger hulk gets. sam gyimah‘s defection to the liberal democrats dominates the front page of the observer. the former tory minister accuses the prime minister of ‘veering towards populism and english nationalism'. the sunday telegaph claims mrjohnson will use the upcoming queen's speech to unveil a tough new approach to criminaljustice — including whole—life orders for people convicted of murdering pre—school children. and the sunday express claims british people have lost faith in mps — citing a poll suggesting almost eight in ten believe parliament is in desperate need of reform and 74% believe it is not fit for the 21st century. the new bbc one drama ‘the ca pture' delves into the shadowy world of so—called big brother technologies, raising questions about the importance of fighting crime, over rights to privacy. facial recognition cameras are being trialled in some places,
10:54 pm
and those behind the technology say its benefits shouldn't be overlooked. our home affairs correspondent katharine carpenter reports. so you're not gonna run a facial rep for me, or shall i call ops room 2? send us the capture. surveillance cameras and facial recognition technology have starring roles in the current bbc one drama the capture. the programme questions whether their images can be trusted and who is controlling them. we are asking similar questions here in the real world, too. police trials of facial recognition have been scrutinised and the information commissioner is investigating after a private company used the technology in kings cross. but here in victoria, where the biometrics of my face are being analysed right now, they say we ignore the positives of facial recognition technology at our peril. it will look for people on a watchlist and if one of those people walks past the camera, it will trigger an alert, it will recognise that person. if a person is not on the watchlist, then it will ignore them.
10:55 pm
clearly, london has a knife crime problem. if a technology such as this could be used in tandem with other front line policing tactics to take knives from the street, i think you would see a lot of public support for that. after ten controversial trials, the met says it is still considering how facial recognition might be used in the future. kenny long says pairing it with officers' body—worn cameras is an obvious next step, speeding up thejob he used to do as a super recogniser, trawling through cctv at scotland yard. the system will give you a list and you will say "right, fantastic," and a human sitting in a control room, or they could be sitting in a car, wherever you are based, would look at it and say "yes, is that the same person? yes or no?" but data protection and privacy concerns persist. it can be used to catch bad guys, certainly. it also makes mistakes. so it could be leading to misidentifications of completely innocent people, it can also be used to chill public expression, to make people feel uncomfortable showing theirfaces in public.
10:56 pm
when i see myself on the screen with a box around my head identifying me, it does make me feel a little bit uneasy. what's really interesting is as you were seen by our facial recognition cameras, you had a smartphone. that smartphone knew exactly where you were, the data was being captured, it was being analysed. other platforms were understanding where you have been, where you're going, who you know, what you have bought. from my perspective, that's far a more pervasive intrusion into our privacy. but he does want clearer laws governing the use of facial recognition, as does the government's biometric commissioner, who says we all need to make choices about the future world we want to live in. katharine carpenter, bbc news. now it's time for a look at the weather with phil avery. hello, saturday was a really lovely day for the greater part of england and wales and at times scotland and northern ireland as well. if initially wet and really windy note. thinks the area of low pressure in
10:57 pm
this frontal system. look at the number there, some of the gusts from the northern ireland's around 70 or more miles an hour. we saw a new windy day, the associate went there front they are to be had across northern ireland and southern scotla nd northern ireland and southern scotland in the north of england and maybe is that frontal system slumps further south some rain getting into the north of wales. at this stage the north of wales. at this stage the winds much reduced across the north of scotland barely a breath further south. white powder conditions dove into the southwestern temperatures just holding back a touch here but for the south and east keep the sunshine for that wee bit 26 degrees for the north and temperature in the teens. through the evening and overnight just drag at the last of that mild they are associated with the weather front ever further towards the south and rain gradually fizzling out, see what a contrast, 15 in the south and clear skies and in the fresher feeling conditions. start monday at four, five or 6 degrees. the week
10:58 pm
ahead a little dry weather around, chilly nights with cloud breaks and just the chance we'll get range of the northern part of the british isles as we get on through the week. notice that those colours really begin to drain away as we get on through monday, the last of that mild airfrom the through monday, the last of that mild air from the weekend through monday, the last of that mild airfrom the weekend draining away as the front clears away. odd bit of rain can be ruled out. a lot of cloud around and for the north brighter skies for scotland, northern ireland to the north of england to hear that fresher feel downed with the southee mightjust about make it towards 20 or 21 degrees. what a cool start to tuesday next at high—pressure building in. and it's really crisp start sunshine to the day on tuesday. northern ireland was to scotla nd tuesday. northern ireland was to scotland as the front moves in from the atlantic. this temperatures on par with monday. high—pressure
10:59 pm
dominates across the south with the dry weather and cloud and rain is there to be had across the northern parts of scotland.
11:00 pm
this is bbc news. the headlines at 11:00: i would like you to meet the newest liberal democrat mp, sam gyimah! former tory minister sam gyimah defects to the liberal democrats. he's the sixth mp to do so and was unveiled at the party conference. soi so i have taken a second look at the liberal democrats and i am delighted to be here to embark on this journey at this point in time with you. david cameron's memoirs — he accuses borisjohnson and michael gove of trashing his government. the us secretary of state blames iran for attacks on two saudi oil facilities as concern grows about global oil supplies.
