6:00 am
good morning. welcome to breakfast with louise minchin and dan walker. our headlines today: boris johnson and jeremy corbyn face a hostile audience in the first election debate as they're pushed on brexit, honesty and the nhs. full market access for us products to our national health service. you're going to sell our national health service out to the united states! mr corbyn is trying to conceal the void at the heart of his brexit policy, and refusing to answer the question of which side he would take. the conservative party's criticised after rebranding their twitter account during the debate to look like an independent fact—checking service.
6:01 am
a mission to save thousands of animals from australia's bushfires. we'll have the latest on the desperate efforts. the it meltdown that exposed customers to fraud. branded the ‘truly shambolic bank', a new report says bosses at tsb lacked common sense after 2 million customers couldn't access their accounts. a special, special night, says wales boss ryan giggs, as they beat hungary to qualify for next year's european championship — he says it's a bright new start for his side. and totteham have sacked manager mauricio pochettino. they're in talks with jose mourinho to take over. not as cold as dark today as it was yesterday. the cloud and rain and breezy conditions in the west. something dry and write in central and eastern areas. i have more in 15 minutes. it's wednesday the 20th of november.
6:02 am
our top story this morning: borisjohnson and jeremy corbyn have traded verbal blows in the first tv debate of the general election campaign, but the public response suggests that neither man emerged as a clear winner. the prime minister said the labour leader was unclear about whether his party support leaving or remaining in the eu and mr corbyn said the nhs wasn't safe in conservative hands. iain watson has this report. this election has produced a first — never before has a sitting prime minister taken on the leader of the opposition head—to—head in a debate with no other parties present. but the topics they debated were less surprising. it all began with brexit. are you going to campaign for leave or remain? i want to bring people together... applause ..therefore there will be a referendum in which that decision will be made by the british people, and our government will abide by that decision. butjeremy corbyn moved swiftly to steer the debate onto his territory, claiming that a post—brexit us trade deal could harm the health service.
6:03 am
"..full market access for us products to our national health service." you're going to sell our national health service to the united states! it is completely untrue. applause there are no circumstances whatever. boris johnson wanted to get back to brexit. although this has been consistently denied, he claimed that labour would do a deal with the snp that would deliver not one referendum but two. of course, jeremy corbyn and the labour party are going to do a deal, and they probably already have done a deal, with nicola sturgeon and the snp to form a corbyn—sturgeon coalition, and the price of that deal, the price of nicola sturgeon‘s support, let's be in no doubt, she's made it absolutely clear, would be a second referendum on the union. i think i ought to be able to reply to this nonsense that... julie etchingham: you will be able to reply, but i'd like to... applause ..the idea that we would be a coalition with labour and the snp. there's not going to be a coalition between labour and anybody else.
6:04 am
there are no deals that have been done and there will be no deals that are done. both leaders tried to play to their strengths but found it difficult to land a knockout blow. but the questions moved from policy to the more personal. does the truth matter in this election? i think it does and i think it very important. laughter anti—semitism is an absolute evil and scourge within our society. applause racism in any form is a scourge in our society. it is going to take a lot more for one debate to convince the undecided who shade should be backing. —— who they should be backing. our political correspondent jessica parkerjoins us from westminster. good morning to you. thank you very much for coming on and giving us your assessment. we heard a little bit in that report, but when you have the potential and potential prime minister talking about truth and jeremy corbyn talking about
6:05 am
clarity and they are laughed at by an audience, it is a strange scenario last night. there was a striking moment as i sat at home watching the debate. the fact the audience on a few occasions were willing to just audience on a few occasions were willing tojust laugh audience on a few occasions were willing to just laugh at either man. borisjohnson, he willing to just laugh at either man. boris johnson, he laughed willing to just laugh at either man. borisjohnson, he laughed on the issue of trust. jeremy corbyn was laughed at over his stance on brexit. that was quite an unusual moment. more broadly as ian was saying, the debate didn't deliver some big revelatory moment, some turnaround in this campaign, bringing the general election campaign to life. both men quite keen to stick to their core messages, very unsurprisingly, and neither of them managed to drive the other man after territory are to deeply uncomfortable on. boris johnson talking a lot about brexit and jeremy corbyn talking a lot about austerity and the nhs. an interesting moment was when they we re interesting moment was when they were asked about the monarchy and those stories around prince andrew, whether the monarchy was fit for
6:06 am
purpose. jeremy corbyn said it needs a bit of improvement, whereas boris johnson said the institution is beyond reproach. a couple of different ideas there from the two leaders. while it was going on, online there was something of a controversy after the cchq press office on twitter rebranded themselves briefly as factcheckuk. they have been told off by twitter for doing that. there have been accusations that it was a slightly misleading thing to do but the party james —— party claire said it was misleading. it was still clear that it was the cchq office from the twitter handle. it was a busy week. we had the greens yesterday and labour to come tomorrow, not entirely sure of the conservatives but the liberal democrats, about five o'clock today, isn't it? ma nifesto five o'clock today, isn't it? manifesto launch season part of the campaign as you say, the lib dems will be releasing their plans today. what we know so far as they want to
6:07 am
recruit 20,000 more teachers in england, spend an extra ten billion pounds a year on schools, and the leader last night talked about a frequent flyer levy. the reason ma nifesto frequent flyer levy. the reason manifesto is important, they put the pa rty‘s manifesto is important, they put the party's promises down in black and white, they can be costed, assessed for how deliverable they are. we are waiting on the labour manifesto, the conservative manifesto, the s&p ma nifesto, conservative manifesto, the s&p manifesto, i am sure they will be excellent reads. —— snp. plenty of mps coming your way as well. talking about manifesto week, well. talking about manifesto week, we are asking labour's dawn butler what she made of the debate. and then to the conservative party's dominic raab. we'll also speak to the lib dems and the snp this morning. if you didn't sit through and watch the whole hour of that debate, like we did, don't worry. we will look at all the different bits of it this morning and get you a proper analysis through the programme. iam analysis through the programme. i am interested to know what you
6:08 am
learnt, what did you learn, what did you know now that you didn't know beforehand? you know now that you didn't know beforehand ? quite you know now that you didn't know beforehand? quite a few people are saying that it wasn't our of... not being able to communicate anything different to what we already knew about both their stances, and by the end of it all, there was a lot of move on, please, because of the style of the debate on the way it works. a handshake in the middle. get in touch with us with your points of view on that. 25 migrants have been found in a refrigerated container. it was bound for the uk. dutch police said 23 people were taken to a nearby police station and two others were taken to hospital. the danish—registered britannia seaways ferry, which was en route to felixstowe, was returned to port near rotterdam in the netherlands. last month, the bodies of 39 people were found in a refrigerated lorry container in essex. around 100 protesters remain barricaded inside a university in hong kong as a stand—off
6:09 am
with police outside enters its fourth day. over 1,000 people have been arrested in the past 2a hours. the us senate has now passed legislation aimed at protecting the human rights of protesters in the city. the bushfires raging across australia's east coast have left hundreds of koala bears feared dead. however, some people are doing their best to help the survivors. amazing footage. a rescue operation has been taking place to save these injured koalas with volunteers and even a dog helping out. 0ur reporter andy moore has more. it has been one of the worst season for bushfires in australia in many yea rs. for bushfires in australia in many years. millions of hectares of burns, hundreds of homes have been destroyed and there has been a devastating toll on wildlife. 0ther animals can run from the flames. the koala can't, and the slow—moving marsupial is trapped. he will need rescuing, won't he? the woman behind
6:10 am
that voice takes a shot of her back, rescuing the animal. taking care not to get hurt herself. careful of his claws. can you get water out of the car? she gives him a first date, dousing him in water to try to treat his burns. put him in the blanket and bring him out of the hot stuff. this animal was lucky stop he was taken to a local animal hospital for treatment. it is believed hundreds of koalas have died in the bushfires. this is a dog called bear. he has been specially trained to sniff out koala is another small marsupials so they can be rescued from the flames. this is a young koala that is recovering well after being rescued. it was found curled up being rescued. it was found curled up and badly dehydrated. but it is hoped it will eventually be able to go back to its home in the wild.
6:11 am
those pictures are really very distressing to watch, actually, aren't they? that woman... good on her, doing all she can. you hope they will be ok. for something com pletely hope they will be ok. for something completely different now. and if you're one of those who can't wait for the release of frozen 2, it seems britain's tennis players feel just the same way. i know you are in that category! andy murray, dan evans and neal skupski all managed to stay straight—faced as they dropped lines from the movie's most recognisable song into their davis cup press conference yesterday. ididn't i didn't see this yesterday. let's take a look. ijust i just have to ijust have to be the player i a lwa ys ijust have to be the player i always have to be. be the good girl you always have to be. can't wait for the event to finish before we give a fair review on what this event is now and it has changed and it is a big change but i think you need to let it go. let it go! we both had a good week's practice, can't hold back anymore.
6:12 am
hold it back anymore! let it go! and all was later revealed on twitter. the lawn tennis association said that the team had been set a frozen challenge ahead of the release of the new film on friday. is this the new way of publicising releases of new material? it is very clever. i would have laughed my head off if i was involved in that. you can see... the thinking, how will i do that? well done. none of them said they will go and build a snowman, would they? that would have been very obvious. a ridiculously busy day for you. two huge stories last night. there are two sport stories in town today. we are going to talk about budgeting in a moment after the really shocking news last night, the timing of the spurs sucking him at 7:30 last night. let's start with good news from wales. wales beat hungary 2—0 in cardiff
6:13 am
to qualify for euro 2020. both goals came from aaron ramsey on his return from injury. manager ryan giggs said it was one of the greatest nights of his life. tottenham have sacked manager mauricio pochettino after five years in thejob. he led them to the champions league final in june, but they're 14th in the premier league after a poor start to this season. dom sibley will make his england debut in the first test against new zealand, which starts tonight. he'll open the batting alongside rory burns. we have just seen some of our tennis players. great britain play their first match at the new—look davis cup today. they take on the netherlands in madrid, and murray says he needs to be sensible about his work load. that is definitely not a frozen lyric. i need to be sensible about my workload. to be fair, she might need to be. yes, she is busy. great result for wales. fantastic news there. it was really cold out and about i
6:14 am
notice for poor carol last night. —— yesterday. how is it today, carol? not as cold. bless your heart. good morning, yesterday. how is it today, carol? not as cold. bless your heart. good morning, everybody. yesterday we had the coldest night of this autumn so far. temperatures fell two —9.9. this not just far. temperatures fell two —9.9. this notjust gone, nowhere near as cold. still chilly for some of you just out. today will be mainly dry and breezy, particularly so in the west and it is in the west we have a weather front producing all this rain, cloud and that strong breeze. very heavy in some areas, part of northern ireland, wales and south—west england. for the next couple of hours in devon or cornwall, the met office has a yellow weather warning out for rain. expect a lot of surface water and spray expect a lot of surface water and spray around. as you move into central and eastern areas, looking at something drier and brighter. yes, there is some cloud but that is higher cloud so the sunshine will be
6:15 am
hazy. with the south—easterly breeze also up the east coast you are not immune to some showers anywhere from east anglia or the way up to 0rkney. the temperatures up a touch on yesterday for some —— some of us. i! to six degrees. through this evening and overnight, clear skies to start with. lowest temperatures. as a cloud comes in from the west, temperatures will rise by the end of the night and you can see this cloud building, still a few showers coming ina building, still a few showers coming in a south—easterly breeze in the east and still will have some rain. this is a new weather front coming in across the south—west of england. tomorrow morning we start off on that note not as cold a start to the day with all the cloud around. we still have this rain coming in from the channel islands, south—west england and wales heading in the direction of northern ireland, but a lot of dry weather around tomorrow. temperatures again roughly six to about 10 degrees. as we move from thursday into friday, we will have
6:16 am
this weather front moving northwards, taking its rain with it and another area of lobe pressure down towards the near continent we think. now, this low pressure towards the low continent could in fa ct towards the low continent could in fact change its tracks. it is something we are keeping a close eye on. we have the first front going north bringing rain into scotland and a second front affecting part of south—west england once again and also wales and northern ireland, in between some dry conditions and we are looking at nine to ii between some dry conditions and we are looking at nine to 11 degrees. as for the weekend, well, we still have our front and this low pressure that could well bring some rain north. this could change, though, and essentially what it means that as we head into the weekend it remains unsettled. 0nce as we head into the weekend it remains unsettled. once again we have some showers, rain but not the temperature. temperatures going up, even into next week. look at that i3! even into next week. look at that 13! we have seen that for a while.
6:17 am
throughout the morning here on breakfast, we will be getting analysis and reaction to last night's election debate from various politicians, as well as the bbc‘s political editor laura kuenssberg. we also wanted to know what voters outside the westminster bubble made of it. jon kay has been to a marginal seat in the west midlands to find out. where else to watch the debate but this is hales 0wen in the west midlands. and this family are the kind of floating voters that both sides need. it is boris johnson versus jeremy corbyn. kevin and sue have invited us into watch. first impressions... his glasses seem to be lopsided. yes, yes. should they that make a difference when we're talking about a prime minister? just
6:18 am
in time. daughter vicky has had a long day at the nursery where she works. there is a glaring lacuna still in this debate. and she doesn't like the long words boris johnson is using. he is confusing. yes, he is. are they communicating with you? do you feel like your understanding at all? no. not at all. who do you think they are talking to, then? because you are the audience. themselves. the way they are coming across, still having a dig at each other, they are not explaining to the people. mr corbyn can now tell us, are you going to campaign for leave or remain?” can now tell us, are you going to campaign for leave or remain? i want to bring people together, therefore they will be a referendum. it is just dig, deke, deke, deke, isn't it? they have to concentrate on other things. brexit is ticking over —— taking over everything —— dig.
6:19 am
the family want to hear about other issues. obviously the nhs, education for the younger kids. yes. and people's living wage.|j for the younger kids. yes. and people's living wage. i will see you later. enjoy. add break, so time for me to head down the road. and meet more floating voters at the gym —— ad break. they have agreed to watch the debate while they work out — who to vote for. sarah hoped the debate would help her decide. they both wa nt to would help her decide. they both want to be prime minister, those two guys. yes. which one of them is crying out to you, connecting with you as a future prime minister? you are shaking your head. neither. there's no straight answers, i feel, really. after years of austerity, gym owner tracy welcomes all the promises of more public spending, but she is suspicious of both leaders. it's quite easy to dangle the carrots to get the voters'
6:20 am
attention, but the question is whether they are going to follow through on what they are actually saying. i think would stood out to me most is when they actually shook hands. what is the same? keep your friends close, keep your enemies closer. i think that's exactly what that was. they don't want to get on with each other, i don't think. that was all for show. out of time, mr johnson, mr corbyn, thank you very much indeed. back at this family, some frustrations, but it has helped. just seeing it in the newspaper, and stuff, you just let our state, don't you? newspaper, and stuff, you just let ourstate, don't you? but newspaper, and stuff, you just let our state, don't you? but when you are actually sat and listening to what they are talking about, more goes in. so have you learnt stuff tonight? yes. so have you made up your mind? i'm still that, at the minute. right. i am your mind? i'm still that, at the minute. right. iam a your mind? i'm still that, at the minute. right. i am a celebrity? yes. imean, one i mean, one thing you can say, it
6:21 am
was certainly kind of interesting scheduling to havejeremy corbyn, borisjohnson, scheduling to havejeremy corbyn, boris johnson, straight into scheduling to havejeremy corbyn, borisjohnson, straight into i am a celebrity. i think ant and dec... luckily, in my house, wejust vacated the sofa. let's take a look at today's papers. the guardian leads off on last night's tv debate, saying the two leaders had very clear cases they wanted to make, boris johnson on brexit and jeremy corbyn on the nhs. the mail says mr corbyn failed on nine occasions during the debate to say whether or not he wants to remain in the european union. the sun leads with the continued fallout from the newsnight interview with prince andrew. it says he pulled out of a visit to flood—hit parts of yorkshire yesterday. and the website politico picks up on something we have been talking about from last night's leaders' debate. the conservative party press office has come in for criticism for renaming its twitter page fact check uk during the programme. twitter says it will take action if there are any future attempts
6:22 am
to mislead people. they also change their avatar, as well, that was part of the problem. normally you keep the picture but you can change the name. they changed everything. if you didn't see the cchq, it was quite clearly something different. on the back page of the daily mail, the thing that lots of spurs fans will be... is disappointed too strong a word? but the next thing, jose mourinho is in line. talk ofjose mourinho very firmly lined up to take over, the bbc reporting that there has already been conversations between spurs and jose mourinho, but pochettino has been there for five years. and they loved him. in the last two years, he has played a very difficult game, because he hasn't always had a huge
6:23 am
amount of money to spend. they have had that fantastic new stadium. they got to a champions league finaljust a few months ago, 90 minutes away from a massive trophy. it was only six months ago he was crying on the pitch, with fans in tears as well, and now he is gone. now he is gone, and now he is gone. now he is gone, and all of the papers have a picture of him and a picture ofjose mourinho as well. ijust of him and a picture ofjose mourinho as well. i just want to share this with you, though. away from the football, this is something we have been talking about quite a bit on breakfast, these two lads here. remember the rugby world cup, not that long ago? remember this cheeky little chap here? he is the one with the south africa undies on. he played the game with south africa flag undies on and had the picture taken with the trophy afterwards. they both, in fact, play for sale. they both, in fact, play for sale. they are back at training and tom curry has been telling a story to the times about how the first time he knew faf was back in the room, he
6:24 am
was ina he knew faf was back in the room, he was in a meeting room and felt something being draped over his shoulder. was it the underpants? that would have been even better. it was faf‘s world cup winner's metal. underpants on one shoulder, metal on the other. i don't know where my mind was going with that. we will make sure he brings his underpants with him. only underpants. and a big report from tsb. headline writers having a bit of fun this morning, in the sun, tsbotch. a report out into what went wrong at tsb last year when 2 million people couldn't access their accounts. loads of people exposed to fraud as well. and easyj et, people exposed to fraud as well. and easyjet, in that times today they
6:25 am
are saying easyjet package holidays cleared for take—off. so thomas cook had all those problems and went under, easyjet there is a bit of a market for package holidays. there isa market for package holidays. there is a company in america making meat out of thin air. how do you do that? mindful of climate change, they have come up with hamburgers with no meat and coffee without beams. there is a chicken, for example, they make chicken. air protein is the name of the company. they produce a protein similarto the company. they produce a protein similar to that found in animals. it stems from research by nasa in the late 1960s. so it goes through quite a chemical process to get it there, but they make the same nutritional value as meat without any meat, made essentially out of... what does it taste like? that is my question. i suppose you just put flavouring on it. chicken flavouring, orwhatever you want. do you know, there is a
6:26 am
horsefly that has been named after beyonce. the mirror are going through things which have been named after famous people. there through things which have been named afterfamous people. there is a lichen named after dolly parton, a beetle named after kate winslet, shakira has a parasite, she hasn't got a parasite, she has a parasite named after her. good morning, shakira. i am sure she is watching, dan. she might be. brad pitt has a wasp, good morning, brad. radiohead have an ant, arnold schwarzenegger also has a beetle, freddie mercury has a damselfly, and prince charles has a damselfly, and prince charles has a damselfly, and prince charles has a frog named after him. why? are they all in the same arboretum, place where you... no, they are all over the world. why has beyonce got

6:28 am
a man has been stabbed to death in a fight in east london. police found the 19—year—old suffering from stab injuries in ilford after responding to reports of a fight in fullwell avenue last night. 800 young trees planted by volunteers in a reading park two years ago have been chopped down by council staff by mistake. this is all that is left of the saplings around the perimeter of palmer park. the council has apologised for what has been called a most regrettable error, saying the trees weren't marked or clearly visible amongst nettles and brambles. it is heartbreaking. it is an act of stupidity. it shouldn't have happened. it is a huge waste, it is a great loss. plus the other growth alongside. it has been described to me bya alongside. it has been described to me by a counsellor as a routine clea ra nce me by a counsellor as a routine clearance of and undergrowth, which sounds odd, because this area was protected for the last three years —— councillor. a disabled racing driver described
6:29 am
as one of britain's most exciting young hopes in motorsport has been selected to take part in a new electric car championship. 20—year—old billy monger, from surrey, lost both legs in a high—speed crash two years ago. he willjoin the the extreme e drivers' programme, which is set to launch in 2021, with teams racing off—road, fully electric vehicles. 0n the tube, the victoria line has minor delays. engineering work has overrun. other lines reportedly running well at the moment. here is how it looks at swiss cottage. there is no access from the finchley road northbound to college road. the traffic lights are broken. and more works slowing things down in knightsbridge. the a4 is partly bocked near harrods. now the weather, with kate kinsella. good morning. it is not feeling quite as cold as it did this time yesterday morning. temperature is largely above zero. still chilly, yes, but we do still have some sunshine. still a bit of a breeze. it isa sunshine. still a bit of a breeze. it is a south—easterly breeze. not especially strong, but you will
6:30 am
notice it. patchy cloud around this morning, but that will start to break up to a fine afternoon, with plenty of sunshine. temperatures today getting up to around 6— eight celsius, so still pretty cold. now, overnight tonight, some clear spells at first, but you will notice this cloud starts to move across. quite extensive through the course of the night. still quite cold out towards the suburbs, the countryside around 2- the suburbs, the countryside around 2— three celsius as a minimum. so another chilly but cloudy start as we head into thursday. it is looking largely dry tomorrow. it should stay dry, but yes, that cloud is hanging around, and the temperatures are still chilly. but as we had to friday, we started to pick up slightly milder air, so temperatures make a little bit of recovery towards the end of the week. with that, though, we run the risk of seeing some showers. i'll be back in around half an hour. bye for now. good morning. welcome back. hello this is breakfast with dan walker and louise minchin.
6:31 am
we'll bring you all the latest news and sport in a moment. but also on breakfast this morning... when you go to the mirror and wash your face, when you go to the mirror and wash yourface, it is when you go to the mirror and wash your face, it is the first thing you see. do you want to see that every single day for the rest of your life? we'll hear calls for a ban on facial tattoos for anyone under the age of 21. the fallout from the duke of york's newsnight interview continues. but what should prince andrew do next? we'll be asking a royal historian. big cheeks and narrow bottlenecks are very big cheeks and narrow bottlenecks are very embarrassing. and as we look forward to another episode of seven worlds, 0ne planet, some of the team which helped to film this hamster‘s heroic failure will be here on the sofa. good morning. here's a summary of today's main stories from bbc news. boris johnson and jeremy corbyn have traded verbal blows in the first tv debate of the general election campaign, but the public response suggests
6:32 am
that neither man emerged as an obvious winner. they covered topics including brexit, scottish independence and the nhs, but both men gave answers which caused mocking laughter from the audience. does the truth matter in this election? i think it does, and i think it very important... i have been very clear about the deal that i have done. we will have a referendum, we will have a negotiation and we will abide by that result. the conservative party has been criticised after rebranding one of its twitter accounts to look like an independent fact—checking service during the debate. the conservative campaign headquarters account changed their name to ‘factcheckuk' with branding. twitter has accused the party of misleading the public. conservative chairmanjames cleverly said it was clear his party was behind the account.
6:33 am
the liberal democrats have vowed to increase teachers' pay in england by at least 3% each year over the course of the next parliament. the party says the pledge, which will be announced at the party's manifesto launch later today, will be funded by £50 billion saved by cancelling brexit. around 100 protesters remain barricaded inside a university in hong kong, as a stand—off with police outside enters its fourth day. over 1,000 people have been arrested in the past 2a hours. the us senate has now passed legislation aimed at protecting the human rights of protesters in the city. the bushfires raging across australia's east coast have left hundreds of koalas feared dead. however, some people are doing their best to help the survivors. you may find some of these pictures upsetting. have a look at this incredible footage. this woman removed her shirt to wrap up an injured koala as she carried it to safety. a rescue operation
6:34 am
has been taking place with volunteers and even a specially trained dog helping out. he can sniff out koalas and try and get them to safety. it was very distressing seeing those pictures actually. we have a full report on that that you can see a little bit later. sally is with us. where are you going to go? wales or the spurs, sax mauricio pochettino. we will do spurs in just a moment because we have to start with wales. do you remember the last euros in france, the best that whole tournament with that fantastic run that wales had? it was really on. they have qualified again for the second time in a row. thanks to a 2—0 win over hungary in cardiff. 0ur sportrs correspondent andy swiss was watching. high decibel than even higher hopes. wales new victory over hungary and a place at euro 2020 was theirs. could they rise to the occasion? how was
6:35 am
this for an answer? gareth bales cross, aaron randy's had a comment wales were ahead. you from the stands to the dugout a wave of relief. not for long, though, as hungary was still posing problems but the hosts kept ahead at the break. just as welsh nerves were starting to jangle... break. just as welsh nerves were starting to jangle. .. ramsey break. just as welsh nerves were starting to jangle... ramsey again, and just look what it meant. wales in wonderland and the celebrations have started. and come the final whistle, the particle really began. wales through to their second european championships in a row. the manager's mission accomplished on a memorable night. of course, the last european championship in 2016 wales reached the semifinals, and after this, there will be hoping that once again they can produce something
6:36 am
special. a special, special night, after what happened in the summer, to come back and qualify, the lads have showed grit, determination, policy and never give up attitude and they deserve all the applause they are going to get because even though we had games to make up, there was no real room for error, so there was no real room for error, so the concentration, i might say the quality that the lads had shown, they deserve it. now, that isn't going to go down well in spain. gareth bale has come underfire in spain for prioritising playing for wales — and finding time for a quick 18 holes — over turning out for his club real madrid, and the forward certainly enjoyed himself after helping his country to the finals of euro 2020. you can see him holding the flag. interesting. do you think he knew...
6:37 am
maybe he hadn't looked. should we give him the benefit of the doubt? that is not going to go down well. northern ireland were thrashed 6—1 by germany and scotland beat kazakhstan 3—1, but both home nations already knew they couldn't qualify for the euros automatically. now, to another big sports story we have mentioned already this morning. tottenham hotspur have sacked manager mauricio pochettino after five years in the job. he led the club to the champions league final last season, where they lost to liverpool, but their start to this season has been really poor — they're 14th in the premier league with only three wins in 12 games. let's have a look at what the club actually said. this was released at 7:30pm last night.
6:38 am
you can imagine the reaction last night. lots of reaction on social media. lots of fans really disappointed this morning, and speculating about who may come next. jose mourinho can confirm to you now, i can confirm, he is the new manager of tottenham hotspur. that has just been announced, 6:38am wednesday morning. jose mourinho is the new spurs manager. he has taken overfrom mauricio pochettino. i know everyone
6:39 am
has gone wow! but, is that much of a shock? i think the speed of it all... the timing. was at 7:30 last night that he went? why would they sack — knapsack mauricio pochettino without having someone mauricio pochettino without having someone lined up? how were they even do that? it isjose mourinho. he is going on. he is known for doing this, isn't he? i think because he was a name at the top of the list last night and quite soon top of the list last night and quite soon after the 7:30pm announcement, they were talking to him already, but i think... it is not even 12 hours later and they have already appointed the new man. like you said earlier, the spurs love mauricio pochettino, they had a great relationship with him, therefore five years, no trophies, which other fa ns five years, no trophies, which other fans point out, and if the new man can come in and secure them some sort of trophy in the first few seasons, that is what the fans are talking about.
6:40 am
asa talking about. as a nonsupport expert, it occurs to me this is brutal. it is brutal, but we heard harry talking a few hours ago about when he spurs, they basically ditched him. they had already spoken to two or three different people before he even had wind of a rumour of a sniff that he might be on his way out. don't for a moment think that this has just happened. you can't do it in 12 hours without. .. jose mourinho will have demands, he will want a certain amount of money in the transfer window, january and in the transfer window, january and in the summer, like to spend money when hejoined the in the summer, like to spend money when he joined the club, in the summer, like to spend money when hejoined the club, he in the summer, like to spend money when he joined the club, he likes to go somewhere, change everything, throw some money at the club and thatis throw some money at the club and that is something i think fans will find really difficult because mauricio pochettino was not given that money. they have a fantastic new stadium to move into what that meant he didn't have the budget perhaps that he would have liked. mauricio pochettino ——jose perhaps that he would have liked. mauricio pochettino —— jose mourinho is known for coming in and sweeping everything in an troubling —— trying to change things. look at what he
6:41 am
has done, chelsea more than once, manchester united. he stays for a certain amount of time, not for very long, not normally for more than three years and he doesn't always play the sort of football that the fa ns wa nt to play the sort of football that the fans want to play. that could be the big difference. as you are talking to us, the statement comes in. we are delighted to announce the head coach of a contract that runs to the end of the 20 to 23 season. he is one of the world's most accomplished managers having 125 senior trophies, he has managed fc porto, inter milan, manchester united, it goes through all the titles he has won a different clubs. the chairman of bears says we have one of the most successful managers in the world. he has a wealth of experience and is a great tactician. he has one honours at every club he has coached, he will bring energy and belief to the dressing room. they have a comment, this has all been happening for some time. he
6:42 am
says he is excited to join the club was such a great heritage and passionate supporters. the quality of both the squad and academy excites me for the wedding with his players is what has attracted me. this is a thing, spurs, beautiful stadium. it is the dream job. a brilliant managerial job. a job stadium. it is the dream job. a brilliant managerialjob. a job any manager worth their salt will want to go to. they have a great team. i imagine they will get a bit of grey. i know they will get a bit of grey. i know they release a statement about mauricio pochettino last night but there is not a single mention of mauricio pochettino in that statement. he has been there for five years and has been loved. and we saw him on the pitch in madrid when spurs had been beating the champions league final with everybody protecting him, the players and staff protecting him when he stood on the pitch and cried. i saw it and it was just so... cried. i saw it and it was just so... it was desperately sad to see.
6:43 am
you could see how much the absolutely meant to him. joe is a marinia is the new boss of totte n ha m. marinia is the new boss of tottenham. —— moreno. marinia is the new boss of tottenham. -- moreno. -- jose mourinho. a busy morning! thank you very much. let us know what you think about that. we're reflecting on last night's head—to—head debate today. that was between jeremy corbyn and borisjohnson. but of course there are more than two parties competing in this election. the snp leader, nicola sturgeon, will make a speech in dundee later, in which she'll claim that a conservative victory will put public services under threat. her holyrood colleague humza yousafjoins us now. good morning to you and thank you for joining good morning to you and thank you forjoining us. we were in the so—called spin room last night doing that debate? i want to pick up on some of the things that were said. borisjohnson said of some of the things that were said. boris johnson said ofjeremy some of the things that were said. borisjohnson said ofjeremy corbyn that labour had probably already done a deal with the s&p. is there a deal already done? short answer, no.
6:44 am
but yes, there was just under 30 mentions of the snp and nicola sturgeon, but of course we were not allowed to be in the room. if you area allowed to be in the room. if you are a viewer in scotland, many of your viewers are from scotland, they would be looking at that and say there is an inherent unfairness here where scotland is mentioned, the snp is mentioned and yet they are not even allowed... there was a debate afterwards, wasn't there, with all the parties? hardly a debate. it was a one—on—one interview. nicola sturgeon should have been given the right of reply. potentially we are not going to be in all of this if there is a hung parliament, the balance of power in this situation it is interesting you talk about being potentially the kingmakers. let's talk about that exactly. jeremy corbyn said there would be no independence referendum in the early yea rs of independence referendum in the early years of a labour government. right? what do you understand by early yea rs ? what do you understand by early years? first of all, understanding him could be quite tricky. he was in scotla nd him could be quite tricky. he was in scotland last week and probably
6:45 am
changed his position four orfive times in one visit, in one day. jeremy corbyn might say one thing now, but essentially, if he wants to have some sort of progressive alliance as he would like to do to lock the tories out of there, the big ask we have is it is not for jeremy corbyn to decide whether the next scottish referendum should happen, it should be for the scottish people in scottish parliament who had body voted. you said you might be kingmakers. would you set a date on it? is that what you set a date on it? is that what you would be demanding? we have said we wa nt you would be demanding? we have said we want a referendum in 2020 on independence. that is when we wanted. brexit is not going to be donein wanted. brexit is not going to be done in the next 12 months, we know that. this is just done in the next 12 months, we know that. this isjust the beginning of the process. for scotland to escape the process. for scotland to escape the brexit madness, to have a say over our own future, we know we can do that if the snp is represented. you say it has to be in 2020. if
6:46 am
they won't say that, what you don't support them? they won't say that, what you don't support them ? what they won't say that, what you don't support them? what happens? we will get to that when we have to get to that. you must have thought about it. of course we have. we have been working a progressive alliance with labour or liberal democrats, to do what we can to lock this in. we will never ever support was johnson and the tories getting into power. what we would see ifjeremy corbyn has a choice if he wants to work aggressively with the s&p and wants to get help, not to just get into number10, to get help, not to just get into number 10, but put forward the plan of ideas, your programme, your budget, you need a helpful part in as opposed to a disruptive partner -- snp. is at a redline for you, a referendum in 2020, for being helpful? it is absolutely a cast—iron request for the scottish government, the snp i should say as well as a number of other things. we have said we want drug laws for scotla nd have said we want drug laws for scotland because we have a great problem in scotland around drug
6:47 am
deaths. that is one question. it is a primary ask. there are other asks we have got related to our domestic agenda as well. there has of course already been on independence referendum and many people were told that it was a once in a generation. how do you persuade people in scotla nd how do you persuade people in scotland that there is a fresh democratic mandate for another one? we were told 2014 if you vote no and state within the union... let's talk about the referendum. people were told if you vote no, the place in the european union is absolutely protected in black and white. for anybody to suggest the world is the same as it was in 2014, that is ludicrous. we stood on a manifesto in 2016, 2017 which said that if scotla nd in 2016, 2017 which said that if scotland was dragged out of europe against its will, remember we voted 62% to remain. that would be the change to give us a mandate for another referendum. we won those elections pretty overwhelmingly and
6:48 am
competitively. the last point is that the scottish parliament, the very beating heart of democracy in scotla nd very beating heart of democracy in scotland voted by a majority for another independence referendum. not just the snp by the parliament voted for it. you have to persuade them of that mattered, that matter exists. thank you for your time here. bye for now. if you have just switched on your tv, big news in the sporting world, jose mourinho has been announced the new boss at tottenham hotspur. pochettino was removed from the club last night, and jose mourinho has saidi last night, and jose mourinho has said i am happy to bejoining a squad with such quality, which excites me. working with these players is what has attracted me to thejob. players is what has attracted me to the job. we will be talking about that throughout the programme. here is carol with a look at this morning's weather. i think it is a little bit warmer than yesterday. yes, good morning,
6:49 am
everybody. it is not as cold as yesterday, but if you are just stepping out, it is still a chilly start to the day. today is going to be mainly dry. there will be variable amounts of cloud around. 0f that high cloud will turn the sunshine that we do have hazy, and it will be pretty breezy, especially in the west. we will also have some rain. currently it has been calling through —— falling through the course of the night, heading through parts of northern ireland, also argyle and butte, dumfries and galloway, parts of wales in south—west england. it is courtesy of this weather front. the front is attached to this area of low pressure. the area around it moves in an anticlockwise direction, so —— we are sucking up a south—easterly flow. also breezy along the north sea coastline, pulling in some showers across parts of eastern scotland, up towards 0rkney, and even into the afternoon we will have that. in the shelter of the hills, in north—east scotland, we will see some sunshine stop the rain persisting in the west and also
6:50 am
across parts of northern ireland. for england, wales, variable amounts of cloud. thickest out towards the west, and in the east, well, again some hazy sunshine. temperature—wise, we're looking at eight in the north to ten or 11 as we push over towards plymouth and belfast. now, through this evening and overnight, we will start off with some clear skies. so the lowest temperatures overnight will be in the first half of the night. as cloud comes in from the west, through the night, temperatures will rise a little bit. we will still have the rain across western areas. this is a new weather front coming our way, and whether cloud remains broken, it will be chilly. as we push on into tomorrow, again, for some of us it will be a bright start. but there will still be a fair bit of cloud around at times, and we still will have this rain coming across wales, south—west england, in towards dorset and hampshire, eventually getting into northern ireland. the temperature range 8—10. northern ireland. the temperature range 8-10. thank you very much for that. we will see you a little bit later on this morning. bosses at tsb showed a lack of common sense. an independent report has shed some new light on what went wrong
6:51 am
at tsb last year. sean, this was a huge issue notjust for tsb, but for trust in banking overall. yes, this is the first big report. it was an independent report commissioned by tsb. they asked a big law firm, slaughter and may, to look at what went wrong when they try to transfer their customers. they were bought out by a different bank, and they thought everything would be hunky—dory. this report reminds us of a lot of the numbers. but it didn't go to plan, and nearly 2 million customers were locked out of their accounts. this report says calls went unanswered for 90 minutes, and fraud attacks were 70 times higher than usual levels at their peak.
6:52 am
so you might be a tsb customer, and an e—mail comes saying problem with your account? and those problems insular. in total, it has cost tsb over £360 million, lots of that compensating customers. this is not even taking into account reputational damage. compensation, trying to sort out the it problem, and one of the people we spoke to at the time, this is a reminder of it, was paul. the effect has been enormous. a huge amount of mental stress, night and day. i have no confidence in their ability, either to answer phones or to get my account back into a secure
6:53 am
position. so i have had to make the very difficult choice to move to another bank. so what happens now? well, we have the regulator cosmic report. this is for tsb to look at what went wrong. but we have the financial conduct authority, the bank of england looking at this, and they can issue fines, they can issue actual punishment for individuals, that they think are involved. 0ne punishment for individuals, that they think are involved. one of the strong things in this report is saying that the board lacked commonsense. which is remarkable. i can remember speaking to the chief executive of tsb when he was still in place, after this, and it was clear that he didn't have control over this platform move. now, he says now, having seen this report, ifi says now, having seen this report, if i was told all of this, there we re if i was told all of this, there were certain things the tsb board we re were certain things the tsb board were not told by this spanish owning company. i wouldn't have gone ahead with the move. so there is a lot more to be discussed there. then the banking sector will look at this and say, right, what are we learning? because actually, outages across all banks are becoming more frequent. 0ne banks are becoming more frequent. one issue which has been raised by
6:54 am
the consumer group which. 0ver over the last five years, customers have been pushed down a digital route, get our research shows that almost every day there is an it glitch in those systems that stops people from making payments, withdrawing cash and doing their everyday business. it suggests that banks need robust systems to cope with this increase in demand for digital banking. so it is another thing to take into account when you are switching your bank. we are told to switch your bank, it makes it more competitive and you get a better deal, but a lot of people will be looking at banks and thinking is your system good enough? do i want an outage? there area enough? do i want an outage? there are a lot of new banks on the scene which haven't been tried and tested over decades, like many of these other ones. but then you have tsp, a brand we have known for a very long period of time, and that has had robert lee the biggest outage so far -- tsb. thank you very much for taking us through all of those
6:55 am
numbers. so much going on this morning. we will of course be talking about the fallout, if there is any, between borisjohnson and jeremy corbyn. i don't know how many of you watch that debate last night, but don't worry, if you didn't watch it, we will show you the best lips. a lot of people saying last night, what did we learn from that debate? it was quite confrontational, being two people head—to—head, and all the a nswe rs we re two people head—to—head, and all the answers were timed, so the marshal of the debate had to interrupt them quite a bit, mid— flow. the other thing we are talking about this morning is, if you are a football fan, especially a spurs fan, last night they announced they were removing pochettino for from the top job. a massive outpouring of support from fans, and less than 12 hours later... from fans, and less than 12 hours later. . . jose from fans, and less than 12 hours later... jose mourinho was announced at 6:38am this morning. there was a statement from the club, he has talked about the fact it was a club he has wanted to join, talked about the fact it was a club he has wanted tojoin, and talked about the fact it was a club he has wanted to join, and there talked about the fact it was a club he has wanted tojoin, and there is quality in the squad and the academy
6:56 am
excites him. he can't wait to work with these players, daniel levy, the spurs chairman, saying why they signed jose mourinho, so we will get all the reaction to that. in amongst all the reaction to that. in amongst all of that, wales fans are probably thinking hold on, a minute. we're not going to be the top sports story. we're off to the euros. not going to be the top sports story. we're off to the euroslj story. we're off to the euros.” will let you get back on your phone, because you are texting various of your football friends to come and talk us about that. time now to get the news, travel and weather where you are. good morning, i'm sonja jessup. in the first case of its kind in london, a landlord has been banned from letting any properties in england for four years, after it was found his tenants were living in conditions that were unsafe. an investigation by camden council found cesar de sousa melo had been subletting a number of overcrowded homes, some without fire alarms, and one with dangerous electrical wiring. he was fined almost £30,000.
6:57 am
a man has been stabbed to death in a fight in east london. the 19—year—old was found by police outside a block of flats in fulwell avenue in ilford last night. no arrests have been made. 800 young trees planted by volunteers in a reading park two years ago have been chopped down by council staff by mistake. the council has apologised for what has been called a most regrettable error, saying the saplings in palmer park weren't marked or clearly visible amongst nettles and brambles. it is heartbreaking. it's an act of stupidity. it shouldn't have happened. it's a huge waste, it's a great loss. 800 trees of that age, plus the other growth alongside. it's been described to me by a councillor as a routine clearance of an undergrowth, which seems odd, because this area was protected for the last three years. a disabled racing driver described as one of britain's most exciting young hopes in motorsport has been
6:58 am
selected to take part in a new championship featuring electric cars. 20—year—old billy mongerfrom surrey lost both legs in a high—speed crash two years ago. he willjoin the the extreme e drivers' programme, which is set to launch in 2021. let's take a look at the travel situation now. 0n the tube, the bakerloo line has minor delays between queen's park and harrow & wealdstone. engineering work has overrun. here is how it looks at swiss cottage. there is no access from the finchley road northbound to college road. the traffic lights are broken. and roadworks slowing things down in knightsbridge. the a4 is partly bocked near harrods. now the weather, with kate kinsella. good morning. it's not feeling quite as cold as it did this time yesterday morning — temperatures largely above zero. still chilly, yes, but we do still have some sunshine. still a bit of a breeze, it's a south—easterly breeze. not especially strong, but you will notice it. patchy cloud around this morning, but that will start to break up to a fine afternoon,
6:59 am
with plenty of sunshine. temperatures today getting up to around 6—8 celsius, so still pretty cold. now, overnight tonight, some clear spells at first, but you'll notice this cloud starts to move across — becoming quite extensive through the course of the night. still quite cold out towards the suburbs. the countryside around 2—3 celsius as a minimum. so another chilly but cloudy start as we head into thursday. it's looking largely dry tomorrow. it should stay dry, but yes, that cloud is hanging around, and the temperatures still chilly. but, as we head through friday, we start to pick up slightly milder air, so temperatures make a little bit of a recovery towards the end of the week. with that, though, we run the risk of seeing some showers. that's it for now. i'll be back in around half an hour. there is plenty more news, travel and weather on our website at the usual address, bbc.co.uk/london, or tune into bbc radio london. bye for now.
7:00 am
good morning. welcome to breakfast with louise minchin and dan walker. 0ur headlines today: boris johnson and jeremy corbyn face a hostile audience in the first election debate as they're pushed on brexit, honesty and the nhs. does the truth matter in this election? i think it does, does the truth matter in this election? ithink it does, and i think it is very important. i think it is very important to hear... i have been very clear about the deal i have done. we will have a referendum, we will have negotiation and we will abide by that result. the conservative party has been criticised after rebranding their twitter account
7:01 am
during the debate to look like an independent fact—checking service. a mission to save thousands of animals from australia's bushfires. we'll have the latest on the desperate efforts. jose mourinho is the new tottenham manager. he takes over from mauricio pochettino who was sacked last night. mourinho has been out of work since he was dismissed by manchester united a year ago. and a special, special night says the manager as wales beats hungary. it isa the manager as wales beats hungary. it is a brand—new start for the side. the it meltdown that exposed customers to fraud. branded the ‘truly shambolic bank', a new report says bosses at tsb lacked common sense after 2 million customers couldn't access their accounts. good morning, another chilly start today, as yesterday. we have the cloud and outbreaks of rain. breezy conditions in the west. for central and eastern areas, some in drier and
7:02 am
brighter. we will have more details in15 brighter. we will have more details in 15 minutes. good morning. it's wednesday the 20th of november. our top story this morning: borisjohnson and jeremy corbyn have traded verbal blows in the first tv debate of the general election campaign, but the public response suggests that neither man emerged as an obvious winner. the prime minister said jeremy corbyn is unclear about whether the labour party support leaving or remaining in the eu and mr corbyn said the nhs isn't safe in conservative hands. iain watson has this report. this election has produced a first — never before has a sitting prime minister taken on the leader of the opposition head—to—head in debate with no other parties present. but the topics they debated were less surprising. it all began with brexit. are you going to campaign for leave or remain? i want to bring people together... applause ..therefore there will be a referendum in which that decision will be made by the british people, and our government
7:03 am
will abide by that decision. butjeremy corbyn moved swiftly to steer the debate onto his territory, claiming that a post—brexit us trade deal could harm the health service. "..full market access for us products to our national health service. " you're going to sell our national health service out to the united states! it is completely untrue. applause there are no circumstances whatever. boris johnson wanted to get back to brexit. although this has been consistently denied, he claimed that labour would do a deal with the snp that would deliver not one referendum, but two. of course, jeremy corbyn and the labour party are going to do a deal, and they probably already have done a deal, with nicola sturgeon and the snp to form a corbyn—sturgeon coalition, and the price of that deal, the price of nicola sturgeon's support, let's be in no doubt, she's made it absolutely clear, would be a second referendum on the union. i think i ought to be able to reply to this nonsense that... julie etchingham: you will be able
7:04 am
to reply, but i'd like to... applause ..the idea that we would be a coalition with labour and the snp. there's not going to be a coalition between labour and anybody else. there are no deals that have been done and there will be no deals that are done. both leaders tried to play to their strengths but found it difficult to land a knockout blow. but the questions moved from policy to the more personal. does the truth matter in this election? i think it does and i think it very important. laughter anti—semitism is an absolute evil and scourge within our society. applause racism in any form is a scourge in our society. it is going to take a lot more for one debate to convince the undecided who they should be backing on december 12. 0ur political correspondent jessica parkerjoins us from westminster. iam i am looking and hearing that debate, and one other thing that
7:05 am
striking was the audience laughed on some occasions that both of them. yes, that was quite an unusual thing to watch, as you say. a couple of occasions where the audience did just laugh at both of the men. boris johnson, as you were hearing on the issue of trust and truth and jeremy corbyn over his stance on brexit. what does this tell us? perhaps it speaks to an exasperation of exhaustion with politics and politicians as well, but perhaps it also exposes a couple of weak points for those two men on those issues. i think broadly, looking at that debate last night, as ian said, it didn't deliver a lockout blow, and a turning point in this election. both men eager to stick to their core messages. borisjohnson men eager to stick to their core messages. boris johnson on men eager to stick to their core messages. borisjohnson on brexit and jeremy corbyn on things like the nhs and austerity. meanwhile, there was co ntrove rsy as nhs and austerity. meanwhile, there
7:06 am
was controversy as well on twitter. as he are talking about a moment ago, after the conservative party rebranded its twitter account factcheckuk, the cchq press twitter. now, the chairman of the party said it was not misleading because it was dl clearfrom it was not misleading because it was dl clear from the twitter handle that it was still the cchq press office, but they are facing accusations it was a misleading thing to do as they pumped out of their interpretation of how the debate had gone. let's also talk about, it is manifesto week, the liberal democrats are launching there today. do you have had the will be in it? we should get sight of his later on today, not too long to go. we have been hearing from the lib dem is they want to recruit 20,000 more teachers in england, than £10 billion more on schools and the leader of the lib dems last night was also talking about a frequent—flier levy, environmental issues again creeping up the agenda. we have the green party launch yesterday. manifestoes are important because they are the party's
7:07 am
promises in black and white, much easier to cost and analyse as to whether they are deliverable. still waiting on the conservative ma nifesto, waiting on the conservative manifesto, we should get the labour ma nifesto manifesto, we should get the labour manifesto soon and the snp as well. we look forward to them all. thank you very much. the duke of york's friendship with the late american businessman and convicted sex offender jeffrey epstein was one of the topics raised in last night's debate. neither boris johnson nor jeremy corbyn took the opportunity to give prince andrew theirfull support. is the monarchy fit for purpose, jeremy corbyn? it needs a bit of improvement. mrjohnson. the institution of the monarchy is beyond reproach. is. .. institution of the monarchy is beyond reproach. is... is prince andrew fit for purpose? before we discuss when sandra, i think we should discuss the victims that are there because... because of what epstein was doing. and i think there are very, epstein was doing. and i think there are very, very serious questions
7:08 am
that must be answered and nobody should be above the law about the primary position or to be the proper treatment of those people, the victims of the most appalling behaviour of apparently epson and others. thank you very much. all our sympathies should be with the terms of jeffrey epstein and sympathies should be with the terms ofjeffrey epstein and the law must certainly take its course. reacting to that this morning. plenty of news and plenty of guest coming up on that story. also, the big sports news is morning is that jose mourinho has been appointed totte n ha m jose mourinho has been appointed tottenham manager, taking overfrom one commerce act yesterday. -- 's —— ‘s act yesterday. —— sacked yesterday. the former chelsea and manchester united boss has signed a contract until the end of the 2022—23 season. sally has more. we heard that news from spurs last nightjust before
7:09 am
we heard that news from spurs last night just before eight we heard that news from spurs last nightjust before eight o'clock, half—an—hour before the leaders debate started. that news broke last night. a real shock for spurs fans but many of them upset because they have loved mauricio pochettino, haven't they? while we were on air, you are right, 30 minutes ago we got confirmation from spurs atjose mourinho has been appointed as a new manager. the point is that theyjust appoint him in the last 12 hours? i don't think so. surely that has been brewing for a long time, perhaps several weeks. we can speak now to alan shearer who joins us on the phone. good morning. good morning. sally broke the news to us less than half—an—hour ago. what is your reaction? mauricio pochettino going last night and within 12 hours jose mourinho pochettino going last night and within 12 hoursjose mourinho is backin within 12 hoursjose mourinho is back ina within 12 hoursjose mourinho is back in a job in english football. they say nothing should surprise you in football, but it has moved very quickly, hasn't it? iwas in football, but it has moved very quickly, hasn't it? i was really taken aback by the news last night
7:10 am
at mauricio pochettino had been fired with the rest of the backroom team when you consider, i know they struggled in the lead for a night — not a while now, they haven't won an away game since january, but you think with what he has achieved at the club in five years in terms of getting them into regular contenders now for the top four and champions league foot ball and getting them to the champions league final last year and the manner they did, you would have something in the bank that would give you an extra few months to try and get things right, but not in football. and then to wake up this morning and find out the news that jose this morning and find out the news thatjose mourinho had been appointed, we all know that jose mourinho has been waiting for a big job. well, he now has a big job. mourinho has been waiting for a big job. well, he now has a bigjob. he has big boots to fill because to go in and follow mauricio pochettino and try and better what he has done and try and better what he has done and know that he hasn't won a trophy
7:11 am
and know that he hasn't won a trophy and that will be a big grind with the supporters. but the way he delivered his football and need that champions league final, that was very, very special and it will live in the fans i saw many, many years. it is sally in the studio. you know jose mourinho. what does he bring to a job like this? we have seen him all over the place, haven't we, and he comes in almost like a firefighter. what is he bring to the players, and the fans not particularly happy this morning. what would you say to them who are disappointed? i think that will tell you the job that mauricio pochettino has done in terms of reading early reports this morning. there is certainly a mixed reaction to mauricio pochettino — — jose certainly a mixed reaction to mauricio pochettino —— jose mourinho coming in. when you consider the trophy he has one in the mixed reaction to that got into their foot ball reaction to that got into their football club, then that tells you how loved mauricio pochettino was for the what is he bring? he brings
7:12 am
trophies, that is what he delivers. it might not be everybody's cup of tea or everyone's style of football but he delivers trophies. wherever he has been, that is what he has delivered. in terms of that pedigree that he brings, it is going around social media this morning, he has won 25 trophies in his managerial career and spurs in their entire time asa career and spurs in their entire time as a team have only 124. i suppose you look at any talk about the pedigree, despite the fact the brand of football is slightly different to what they are useful, if they can win a trophy, that changes everything. you would think so, because that is the one thing that has been missing recently for tottenham is that trophy that they have wanted. but spurs want to pray brand of football that excites their fans and certainly mauricio pochettino did that. what jose mourinho is going to do, we're going to see the jose mourinho that was consta ntly to see the jose mourinho that was constantly fighting, constantly nagging away at whoever at the last few football clubs he had been? yes,
7:13 am
they still deliver trophies but it hasn't been a sparkling jose mourinho that first came into the premier league and everyone that loved him. really good to talk to you. sorry to wa ke really good to talk to you. sorry to wake you up so early this morning. thank you! sally, thank you very much. you will be back with the rest of the sport including wales's amazing win. we haven't forgotten wales. jose mourinho has been announced the manager after the sacking of mauricio pochettino at 7:30pm last night. the bushfires raging across australia's east coast have left hundreds of koalas feared dead. some people are doing their best to help the survivors. a rescue operation has been taking place to save injured koalas with volunteers and even a dog helping out. andy moore reports. we should warn you that you might find some of the pictures you are about to cease a little distressing. —— about to see a little
7:14 am
distressing. it's been one of the worst seasons for bushfires in australia in many years. millions of hectares have burned, hundreds of homes have been destroyed and there's been a devastating toll on wildlife. other animals can run from the flames. the koala can't, and this slow—moving marsupial is trapped. he'll need rescuing, won't he? the woman behind that voice takes the shirt off her back and rescues the animal, taking care to avoid getting hurt herself. just careful of his claws. can you get water out of my car? and then she gives him a first aid, dousing him in water to try to treat his burns. do you want to put him in the blanket and bring him out of the hot stuff? yeah, i will. this animal was lucky. he was taken off to a local animal hospital for treatment. but it's believed that hundreds of koalas have died in the bushfires. this is a dog called bear.
7:15 am
he's been specially trained to sniff out koalas and other small marsupials so they can be rescued from the flames. this is a young koala that's recovering well after being rescued. it was found curled up and badly dehydrated. but it's hoped it will eventually be able to go back to its home in the wild. andy moore, bbc news. and what amazing animals they are. last night, just over the road from here, boris johnson and jeremy corbyn were going head—to—head in their first televised election debate. today's papers are split on how they both fared. the times says the pair were "neck—and—neck" while the mail and the express called the labour leader laughable and accused him of dodging the question of how he would vote in another eu referendum — a subject which also caused laughter among the tv audience.
7:16 am
i've made the position clear. we will have a referendum, we will have the negotiation, and we will abide by that result. some of the other papers were very critical of borisjohnson as well. mr corbyn's shadow cabinet colleague, dawn butler, joins us now. thank you for coming on the programme this morning. talking to our political correspondent about some of the laughter which came from both boris johnson's some of the laughter which came from both borisjohnson's answers and jeremy corbyn's answers from the live audience in there yesterday, on that issue of clarity, that is where the sort of laughter came from. the audience whenjeremy corbyn was speaking, because nine times he was asked for clarity on his position over where he stands, whether it be leave or remain. why can't he always can't party be clear on that? well, i think it's quite an interesting position, in terms of the fact that that's exactly what boris johnson wanted. he wants everyone to say i tried to get an answer from him
7:17 am
wanted. he wants everyone to say i tried to get an answerfrom him nine times, whenjeremy tried to get an answerfrom him nine times, when jeremy has tried to get an answerfrom him nine times, whenjeremy has actually made his position really clear. and it is just to perpetuate this fake news. let's not forget the conservatives have had three years to get brexit done, and they haven't. boris johnson has said he will get brexit done by 310ctober, do or die, dead in the debts, all that stuff, and it hasn't been done. so we need to really remember that, first of all. but let me get back to your question in regards to labour's position on brexit. we have been very clear in terms of, within six months, we will put brexit to bed. in the end destination is this. everybody will receive, yes, another referendum, or are people's vote, and on it will be are people's vote, and on it will be a credible leave deal and remain deal. and the labour party will implement whatever the public decides. that is important. can you appreciate, i was in southampton yesterday speaking to people who will be voting in 3.5 weeks' time. in one of the issues which came up, we didn't necessarily cover it on television because we were talking about education, but one of the issues talking to voters was they
7:18 am
didn't know what jeremy issues talking to voters was they didn't know whatjeremy corbyn's thoughts were on the biggest issue of the day. surely it is important, if you are asking someone to trust your leader, to trust your party, to understand whether he sits on the side of the fence or that side of the fence when it comes to brexit. well, it depends how you view it, actually. jeremy corbyn is prime minister is not there to implement what he wants. he is there to implement what the public want. but isn't it important to know what his thoughts are on such an important issue? it is important to know what he will do, not what he thinks. it is important to know what he will do and what he would do for the country. and what he will do for the country. and what he will do for the country is have a referendum, a public vote, i confirm a cherry vote, and on that will be a credible leave option and remain option, and jeremy corbyn as prime minister will implement whatever the public decides, because it will be a binding referendum. what he will do as prime minister, not what he thinks. borisjohnson as prime minister, not what he thinks. boris johnson has as prime minister, not what he thinks. borisjohnson has said what he will do on 310ctober, and he
7:19 am
didn't do it. he failed. theresa may said what she would do, and she failed. david cameron said what he would do, and he failed. jeremy corbyn is a man of his word. in six months we will put brexit to bed. again, iwill months we will put brexit to bed. again, i will come back to you on that. is that not clear? it is not. why is it not clear? because we have spoken to the likes of diane abbott, emily thornbury, keir starmer, and they are all in a position where you would renegotiate a position with the eu, which is the promise, and let's say the option is on the table to leave. and then you have the vast majority of the shadow cabinet would then be actively campaigning against that deal that you have negotiated. yes, because i would be campaigning to remain, butjeremy corbyn... yes, because i would be campaigning to remain, but jeremy corbyn... but don't you understand how strange that sounds? you say we will go and negotiate a deal to leave, but your point, and many others... let me finish a sentence. i will be campaigning to remain. against that
7:20 am
negotiated deal. yes, because they have a choice. that's what happens when you have a choice. you decide which one you want. butjeremy corbyn is the prime minister would implement what the public decide. that is the big difference. he would be the prime minister, so hisjob is to implement whatever the public decides. they have the final say, and he will be the seventh of the public, and he will implement what the public decides. it is as clear and as simple as that. can i ask you, one other interesting topic yesterday was the potential deal with another party, and the snp came up. and jeremy corbyn, i read the exact quote, because i don't want to misquote your leader. mr corbyn said there will be no deal with the snp and no support for a scottish referendum in the early years of the next labour government. what does that mean by early years? if people this morning i considering voting labour and they have strong issues, strong thoughts, on the union, i think they would want to know if, in the third year of a labour government, they would be a deal with the snp to have another scottish referendum. so what does
7:21 am
that mean, early years? there is no deal, and it is not a priority. so you are not even in talks with the snp about this? why did he not say at all? why did he say early years? surely there has been some discussion about what might happen down the road with the snp. nobody knows what might happen down the road, but there is no deal and it is not a priority, and that's it. what we're going to be focusing on his investment. we are going be focusing on investing in scotland, we're going to be focusing on investing in the regions. we are going to be focusing on the green revolution deals. we are going to be investing in schools, doctors and nurses, hospitals, we are going to be investing. that is going to be the priority in the early years of a labour government. so if you are on the door and someone says to you i would really like to know, i am interested to know what your policies are on scotland, if i was to vote for a labour government and labour get to vote for a labour government and labourget in, to vote for a labour government and labour get in, jeremy corbyn ‘s prime minister, and then there is
7:22 am
this question of a second referendum in scotland, is that going to happen under a labour government? we won't dictate what happens in scotland. so thatis dictate what happens in scotland. so that is not a priority for a labour government. the priority for a labour government is to invest in scotland, is to keep britain united. that is the priority of a labour government. a labour government wa nts to government. a labour government wants to bring the country together. we are sick and tired of all this division, we are sick and tired of all the division that borisjohnson has sewn into our country and community, not caring about the consequences of that. we are sick and tired of that. it is about time we had a prime minister who wants to unite the country, and that is exactly what a labour government will do. we will unite the country. there was one question asked last night to both leaders of the parties, about the prince andrew situation. do you have a comment on that? because some... what was that you said? i thought it was a shocking response from the prime minister, borisjohnson. what does he mean that someone is beyond reproach? he didn't say someone, he said the monarchy was beyond reproach. he didn't say prince andrew. what does that mean? what an insult that is to the victims, who
7:23 am
have possibly been trafficked, to the victims who have been abused? what does that mean? nobody is beyond reproach, especially people who hang around with paedophiles. i think it is a disgrace. i am shocked by it, to be honest. dawn butler, it is good to talk to you this morning. it is nice to speak to you on the sofa, as well. it is much more comfy there than it is over here. certainly a hive of political activity just across the certainly a hive of political activityjust across the piazza last night, as well. here is carol with a look at this morning's weather. and not as cold as it was last night, which is in some ways a good thing. and not as cold as it was last night, which is in some ways a good thing. having said that, if you are in braemar, the temperature fell two -4. in braemar, the temperature fell two —4. today, dry and breezy. the cloud that was the west, with some rain. some of this is heavy, and outwards the east in the south—easterly breeze, that is a milder direction for the breeze, for us, we are seeing a few showers. coming up the north sea coastline towards 0rkney through the course of the day. in between, a lot of dry weather. some sunny spells, and with the amount of
7:24 am
cloud around, it is going to be quite hazy sunshine stop but milder in the west, ten or 11. still quite fresh as we put out towards the east, but not as cold as it was yesterday. through this evening and overnight we will have the lowest overnight we will have the lowest overnight temperatures in the first half of the night. as this cloud comes in from the west, through the night, temperatures will rise by a degree or so. and we will see a new band of rain swinging and across parts of wales in south—west england. now, there will still be a few holes in this cloud, and where the holes prevail, we could still see the odd pocket of frost. enter tomorrow, then, where we have had the clear skies by night, we will start off with some sunshine. still quite breezy, still the east coast in the northern aisle is not immune to the odd shower, and we still have the rain heading towards northern ireland, through wales, south—west england, getting in the direction of hampshire and dorset. in between, once again, a lot of dry weather, with highs between eight and ten. carroll, huge apologies for being late with the weather today, we have had a very busy half—an—hour.
7:25 am
late with the weather today, we have had a very busy half-an-hour. no worries, ijust had a very busy half-an-hour. no worries, i just have had a very busy half-an-hour. no worries, ijust have to fly because iamon worries, ijust have to fly because i am on radio two. see you later. —— keir i am on radio two. see you later. —— —— carol. if the duke of york hoped that his interview with the bbc‘s newsnight programme last week would draw a line under his ties to the convicted sex offenderjeffrey epstein, he was mistaken. yesterday, the banking firm standard chartered became the second corporate partner to cut ties with the duke's business mentoring scheme. it cited commercial reasons. the issue was also raised in last night's head—to—head debate between the conservative and labour leaders. the royal historian and commentator caroline aston joins us from our nottingham newsroom. good morning to you. thank you very much indeed forjoining us. this is now becoming, you know, a topic of national discussion. national now becoming, you know, a topic of national discussion. what happens now to prince andrew, do you think? well, i think the most sensible course of action would be to make a
7:26 am
frank statement to the american authorities, and then retire into the dusky sidelines and keep a low profile. he ought to know, as an ex naval man, that if you put your headway above the parapet, someone is going to shoot at you, and we are now, of course, in a period of fallout after the explosion of that amazing emily maitlis interview on saturday night. how damaging is it, for example, the charities he is involved with, the initiatives he is involved with, the initiatives he is involved with? well, of course, having a royal patron is meant to give social cachet to any organisation, and again, there is the old saying rats desert a sinking ship, andjudging by the the old saying rats desert a sinking ship, and judging by the news that is coming in, many groups are doing all they can to distance themselves
7:27 am
from their patron. although, of course, he is the patron or is connected to at least 200 charities, 24 of which are connected with young people. so it is very unlikely that all of those charities will dump him, but there will certainly be a big cooling off into away from the u nfortu nate big cooling off into away from the unfortunate prince, who if he couldn't perspire earlier on in his career is certainly sweating right now. you say that he should retire, temporarily from public life, or what exactly should happen? well, i think you should distance himself for a good period, while this jeffrey epstein stuff is active, it behoves him to keep quiet unless challenged by the authorities or he offers the chance for the authorities to interview him. i really can't understand why he hasn't taken that route, rather than this car crash, articulated lorry crash, of an interview which has posed more questions than it has answered. very bad high risk strategy, that has not gone in his favour. i am interested, as well, on your opinion on... you talk about what has happened to his reputation. what about the wider monarchy? how
7:28 am
important is it for them to be seen to get this right? obviously quite right. the whole thing wants re—examining now in the light of what has come up after the interview. i have to say, for me, it was a positive colander full of holes, contradictions, all sorts of things that need further exploration and investigation. ishould things that need further exploration and investigation. i should think his pr guru is kicking herself that she pushed quite so hard for the duke to have this exposure. although, apparently, he thought it went rather well and went to church the next day and was heard to tell the next day and was heard to tell the queen that it was really quite good. thank you very much for your opinions here on bbc breakfast. are busy half hour, talking about pochettino, we have dominic raab for the conservatives coming up. stay with us for the national headlines
7:29 am
injusta with us for the national headlines injust a minute. good morning, i'm sonja jessup. in the first case of its kind in london, a landlord has been banned from letting any properties in england for four years after it was found his tenants were living in conditions that were unsafe. an investigation by camden council found cesar de sousa melo had been subletting a number of overcrowded homes, some without fire alarms, and one with dangerous electrical wiring. he was fined almost £30,000. a man has been stabbed to death in a fight in east london. the 19—year—old was found by police outside a block of flats in fullwell avenue in ilford last night. no arrests have been made. 800 young trees planted by volunteers in a reading park two years ago have been chopped down by council staff by mistake. the council has apologised for what has been called a most regrettable error, saying the saplings in palmer park weren't marked or clearly visible amongst nettles and brambles. it is heartbreaking.
7:30 am
it's — it's an act of stupidity. it shouldn't have happened. it's a huge waste, it's a great loss. 800 trees of that age, plus the other growth alongside. it's been described to me by a councillor as a routine clearance of an undergrowth, which seems odd, because this area was protected for the last three years. a disabled racing driver described as one of britain's most exciting young hopes in motorsport has been selected to take part in a new championship featuring electric cars. 20—year—old billy mongerfrom surrey lost both legs in a high—speed crash two years ago. he willjoin the the extreme e drivers' programme, which is set to launch in 2021. let's take a look at the travel situation now. 0n the tube, the earlier problems on the bakerloo line have now cleared. it appears to all be running well. a signalling problem on southeastern trains means some heading towards charing cross aren't able to call at lewisham this morning. and here is how it looks on the roads at swiss cottage. there is no access from the finchley road northbound
7:31 am
to college road. the traffic lights are broken. now the weather, with kate kinsella. good morning. it's not feeling quite as cold as it did this time yesterday morning — temperatures largely above zero. still chilly, yes, but we do still have some sunshine. still a bit of a breeze, it's a south—easterly breeze. not especially strong, but you will notice it. patchy cloud around this morning, but that will start to break up to a fine afternoon, with plenty of sunshine. temperatures today getting up to around 6—8 celsius, so still pretty cold. now, overnight tonight, some clear spells at first, but you'll notice this cloud starts to move across, becoming quite extensive through the course of the night. still quite cold, though, out towards the suburbs. the countryside around 2—3 celsius as a minimum. so another chilly but cloudy start as we head into thursday. it's looking largely dry tomorrow. it should stay dry, but yes, that cloud is hanging around, and the temperatures still chilly. but, as we head through friday,
7:32 am
we start to pick up slightly milder air, so temperatures make a little bit of a recovery towards the end of the week. with that, though, we run the risk of seeing some showers. that's it for now. i'll be back in around half an hour. there's plenty more news, travel and weather on our website at the usual address. bye for now. hello. this is breakfast with dan walker and louise minchin. 7:30am. the leaders of the two main parties have clashed in their first televised head—to—head debate, but the public response suggests that neither emerged as an obvious winner. labour's jeremy corbyn used the itv debate to attack the conservative party's plans for the nhs, but stopped short of declaring what his position would be in another eu referendum. are you going to campaign for leave or remain? i want to bring people together. therefore, there will be a referendum in which that decision
7:33 am
will be made by the british people and our government will abide by that decision. meanwhile, borisjohnson repeated his promise to "get brexit done", but the prime minister prompted laughter when he answered a question about personal integrity. personal integrity, and individual character. does the truth matter in this election? i think it does, and i think it very important... laughter i have been very clear about the deal that i have done. boris johnson's friend and cabinet colleague, dominic raab, joins us now. mr raab, why do you think the audience laughed when mrjohnson said that he believes that telling the truth matters? there was lots of reaction to that. i know you are familiar with that clip. the fact the audience laughed when the prime minister talked about truth... how damaging is that? in all of these debates, you will get reaction from the audience and there are different tribes reflected in the audience. what really matters is
7:34 am
the audience. what really matters is the audience. what really matters is the audience at home and we know from the pole that two to one that he was found that borisjohnson was more pop prime ministerial than jeremy corbyn and that probably for swing voters is the most important victory of the night to boris. let's go back to truth and the relationship with truth. it is interesting because it comes to the heart and he was asked, can't does the truth matter insert —— does the truth matter and selection? he said, i think it does. but then again, people at home may not have love like the audience, but it shows you what is going on here, people questioning the prime minister. people question all politicians, but i think his answer was very compelling. judgement on my record, i got knife crime down. the brexit deal. it was impossible and he delivered it within three months and he is setting out his plans. the keynote of the night, and you said it yourself, it was atjeremy corbyn, and you heard it again from
7:35 am
don butler on your sofa, but last nightjeremy corbyn couldn't answer which way he would go. if you can't be trusted by the voters to give a clear a nswer be trusted by the voters to give a clear answer on the... let's talk about... it comes down to trust.“ you want to mention that, you can talk about the many times he said we would leave when we need to leave. the reason for that was parliament blocking, and that is why we are having this election out of necessity, people want this election done. they need to vote conservative. corbin would have the second referendum with a deal with the lib dems and another referendum with the snp. have a clear choice, move forward with boris or globe back and have the uncertainty with jeremy corbyn. if truth matters as the prime minister said it does, let's run through what happened to the conservative party's official press account twitter handle last night. it changed to this. you will
7:36 am
be familiar with it. factcheckuk. fa ct be familiar with it. factcheckuk. fact checking labour from be familiar with it. factcheckuk. fact checking labourfrom cchq. be familiar with it. factcheckuk. fact checking labour from cchq. look at the top here. factcheckuk. from cchq. it is small, isn't it? come on... no, you come on! it is misleading. we have had all sorts of nonsense. 0ne misleading. we have had all sorts of nonsense. one of the things we learn from our selection, a really good insta nt from our selection, a really good instant rebuttal of the nonsense. the standout moment i thought of that debate last night whenjeremy corbyn through the nonsense that borisjohnson corbyn through the nonsense that boris johnson around corbyn through the nonsense that borisjohnson around privatising the nhs... we borisjohnson around privatising the nhs. .. we talk to labour in the last half—an—hour. nhs. .. we talk to labour in the last half-an-hour. borisjohnson nhs. .. we talk to labour in the last half-an-hour. boris johnson stood up and said from the heart under my watch, the nhs will never... why do you need to dress it up as factcheckuk? because we want to make it clear that we are holding labour
7:37 am
to account for the nonsense that they systematically and sincerely put out in relation to conservatives. let's take this for example from the fact decking agency. they say it is inappropriate and misleading for the conservative press office to rename that twitter account factcheckuk during this debate. who said they are the final arbiter of what the problem need to say? there is no god—given right, said lord... it doesn't sound to me like they like the competition. what about twitter? voters will make of the claims what they will. what we are not going to do is have this nonsense that the nhs is up for sale. let's talk about twitter. sorry to interrupt you. that is what voters really ca re sorry to interrupt you. that is what voters really care about. we are talking about trust and truth and whether or not this might be misleading. twitter says we have global rules in place at human behaviour that can mislead people, including those with verified
7:38 am
accounts. any further attempts to mislead people by editing verified profile information in a manner seen during the uk election will result in decisive corrective action. they talk about it being misleading. as i said, no—one who looked at it for more than a split second would have been fooled, it is from the cchq. the key point is we need to test some of the nonsense labour are putting out. the nhs will never be able to sell. we are the ones, forget this negativity, we are the one with a £34 billion to invest in doctors and nurses and hospitals. people want to know about the truth. do you think you would do this ain? do you think you would do this again? or do you think you would do this again? 0rwas it do you think you would do this again? or was it a do you think you would do this again? 0rwas ita mistake. do you think you would do this again? 0rwas it a mistake.” do you think you would do this again? or was it a mistake. i have beenin again? or was it a mistake. i have been in the midlands, i was down in surrey, talking about social media, cut and thrust, what they care about is the substance of the issues. there is a huge amount of scepticism about the politicians but what we are not going to do is have this nonsense from labour. i thought
7:39 am
boris knocked that issue out of the park in the debate last night. so this is not a mistake in your view. when you are in the conservatives, eve ryo ne when you are in the conservatives, everyone wants to have a go at the tories, we should be rebutting the nonsense put out about us. thank you very much for talking about that. let's move onto subject which was touched on at the end of the debate. it is about prince andrew. in your role as foreign secretary, what did you make of the interview?” role as foreign secretary, what did you make of the interview? i am not going to get caught into that, i am the foreign secretary, i will not comment. it is not really for me to comment. it is not really for me to comment on that at all. but of course, in the wholejeffrey 0'steen saga, my heart goals —— heart goes out, —— jeffrey epstein. saga, my heart goals —— heart goes out, --jeffrey epstein. i saga, my heart goals —— heart goes out, —— jeffrey epstein. i will not comment or criticise on stuff which is really for prince andrew to deal with. could you tell me whether the government has had any contact with american authorities specifically over this for example? have they
7:40 am
beenin over this for example? have they been in touch? and that i am aware of. if they were, would you co—operate? if they wanted to talk to prince andrew... if there was a law enforcement question, of course we would co—operate in the usual way. one last question. the former lord chancellor is not alone in this actually, called for prince andrew to step down from public duties.” can't get into all of that. those very serious questions will be a nswered very serious questions will be answered by prince andrew and it is quite right that he answers those westerns. that is not for me to talk about. we appreciate for talking to us. about. we appreciate for talking to us. i know you are over the road but it has been nice to have a politician. yes, we have spoken to the snp this morning and we will be speaking to the liberal democrat later on as well. it is their manifesto five o'clock is when the lib dems referred —— release their manifesto. talking about education today and the changes they would make. all that to come this morning. when is yours
7:41 am
coming up? shortly. come on! when? you are trying to catch me out! we will announce the timing of that in due course. before the weekend? shortly. what to shortly mean? i am interested because i want to see it, like everybody else would like to see it. you will see it shortly and it will be packed with a really positive agenda to take us forward. we look forward to that shortly. still to come this morning: from using high—tech drones to hiding under a fake swan, the cameraman who captured some of these incredible images for the bbc natural history show, seven worlds, 0ne planet, will be telling us how it's done. amazing, the footage, isn't it? we were talking about hamsters. not something we would normally be talking about. it is a busy morning.
7:42 am
politicians are wandering in left, right and centre. sally, you have broken the news aboutjose mourinho. the new manager at birth. that happened quickly, didn't it? or as louise said earlier, did it? it felt very quick. we got the news from mauricio pochettino and then the news less than 12 hours later from jose mourinho. that picture says everything you need to know aboutjose mourinho. look at his face. it was announced as new bird manager, but there was a statement he has given a quote to the club that was ready to go, obviously this is being talked about for some time. everyone home, if you arejust waking up,jose everyone home, if you arejust waking up, jose mourinho is the new birds manager. i am notjoking. mauricio pochettino was sacked last night. mourinho has been out of work since he was dismissed by manchester united last december, although he's turned down a number of offers, but he still lives in london. he won three premier league titles
7:43 am
in two spells with chelsea. that is what he is known for, the trophies. he said of spurs: "the quality in both the squad and the academy excites me... he takes over a spurs side that are 14th in the premier league and without a win in their last five games. spurs put out a statement, with comments from chairman daniel levy, who said: "injose, we have one of the most successful managers in football. he has a wealth of experience, can inspire teams and is a great tactician. i hope you have your glasses onto readers. —— read this. "he has won honours at every club he has coached. we believe he will bring energy and belief to the dressing room." earlier on, we spoke to former player, now match of the day pundit, alan shearer, here's his take on the appointment. we know jose mourinho we knowjose mourinho was waiting for a big job. he we knowjose mourinho was waiting fora bigjob. he has big boots we knowjose mourinho was waiting for a big job. he has big boots to fill because to go in and follow mauricio pochettino and try and better what he has done, i know he
7:44 am
has not won a trophy and that will bea has not won a trophy and that will be a big thing with some supporters, but the way he delivered his foot ball but the way he delivered his football in the way he delivered the champions league final, that was very, very special and will live in the fans eyes for many, many years. in other sport news... wales qualified for the euros for the second time in a row, thanks to a 2—0 win over hungary in cardiff. 0ur sports correspondent andy swiss was watching. high decibels and even higher hopes. wales knew victory over hungary and a place at euro 2020 was theirs. so, could they rise to the occasion? well, how was this for an answer? gareth bale's cross, aaron ramsey's header and wales were ahead. cue from the stands to the dugout a wave of relief. not for long, though, as hungary was soon posing problems and only wayne hennessey‘s heroics kept the hosts ahead at the break. butjust as welsh nerves
7:45 am
were starting to jangle... ..ramsey again, and just look what it meant. wales in wonderland and the celebrations had started. and come the final whistle, the party could really begin. wales through to their second european championships in a row. for manager ryan giggs, mission accomplished on a memorable night. well, of course, at the last european championship in 2016, wales reached the semifinals, and after this, they'll be hoping that once again they can produce something special. a special, special night, you know, after what happened in the summer, to come back and to qualify, the lads have showed grit, determination, quality, never—give—up attitude and, yeah, they deserve all the applause they are going to get because even though we had games to make up, there was no real room for error, so the concentration,
7:46 am
i might say the quality that the lads had shown, yeah, they deserve it. that is a very happy coach. well done, wales. this birth fans love mauricio pochettino. clearly the negotiating... uri. iagree the negotiating... uri. i agree with you and i feel for the birth fans getting in touch this morning. the only thing i wonder is was there a moment where perhaps mauricio pochettino was going to happen? maybe he realised it a while ago. maybe they had been talking for ago. maybe they had been talking for a longer time than we know. under pressure to win stuff now. yeah. the big question is did carol make it to radio to? i did. good morning,
7:47 am
everybody. if you are just stepping out, not as cold a day as it was yesterday. for many of us, dry and breezy as well, but if you look at the temperature chart from last night, from monday night festival, look at all the blues. that indicates temperatures freezing below. on monday night we saw —9.9 celsius in braemar. the nightjust gonein celsius in braemar. the nightjust gone in braemar, —4. look at the greens and yellows telling you it is not as cold. 0n the satellite picture you can see a line of cloud across us. picture you can see a line of cloud across us. some of this is high cloud, but it is also courtesy of a weather front, and that weather front is bringing in some rain. some heavy bursts currently across argyll and butte. mild in dumfries and galloway, to the east of northern ireland, wales and south—west england. it is accompanied by breezy conditions as well, but the breeze coming from the south—east, which is a mild direction for us. also breezy across the north sea coastline. in here today we are not immune to the
7:48 am
odd shower coming in on breeze as far north as the northern isles. in between, some dry and bright conditions with some hazy sunshine. through this evening and overnight we will see the lowest overnight temperatures in the first half of the night, as a new weatherfront comes our way. more cloud will build ahead of it, and overnight temperatures will rise by a degree or so. temperatures will rise by a degree or so. it is going to be a wet start tomorrow in pembrokeshire and also south—west england. so, if we pick up south—west england. so, if we pick up on that, through the course of tomorrow, this band of rain, heavy at times, with the odd rumble of thunder, continues across south—west england. parts of wales, into northern ireland, eventually makes it overthrew somerset, into dorset hampshire later on in the day. now, ahead of it, still quite a bit of cloud around. some of this is high cloud, and some of us will see some sunshine. particularly so if you are in the shelter of the hills. so around the north—east of scotland, for example, parts of cumbria, for example. temperatures ranging from eight to 10 degrees. but the temperatures towards the end of the week and into the weekend are going to climb. 0nce week and into the weekend are going to climb. once again, where you see
7:49 am
yellows, that is indicating higher temperatures, certainly higher temperatures, certainly higher temperatures than we have seen of late. so on friday we have got our weather front moving northwards, getting into northern ireland, and also southern and central scotland. and another system out towards the west, bringing in some rain. at in between, there will be drier conditions and brighter conditions. we are seeing a few more elevens on the charts. saturday's forecast, still open to question. this is what we think at the moment. it is still open to question and the timing of it, but some brighter skies out towards the west and temperatures by then, we're looking at nine, ten or 11. even through sunday and into the early pa rt 11. even through sunday and into the early part of the next week of the new week, well, there still will be some rain and showers in the forecast. the temperatures will rise, and some of us into the early pa rt rise, and some of us into the early part of next week will see 13 degrees. that is a huge change compared to what we have been used to in the last ten days. it also
7:50 am
means we won't have such issues with overnight frosts. well, it is a lovely time of year for autumn books, isn't it? thank you very much. this morning on breakfast, we are analysing the performances of borisjohnson and jeremy corbyn in last night's head—to—head debate. the lib dems'jo swinson was unimpressed. she insisted afterwards that her party wouldn't go into government alongside either of them. the lib dems' education spokesperson, layla moran, joins us now from westminster ahead of the manifesto launch later today. it is manifesto launch day this morning. thank you forjoining us today. can i ask you, we have spoken today. can i ask you, we have spoken to don butler from today. can i ask you, we have spoken to don butlerfrom the labour today. can i ask you, we have spoken to don butler from the labour party, the snp, we have spoken to dominic raab from the conservatives. what was your take on the leadership debate last night? i was distantly underwhelmed. we saw two tired all parties talking about how they will carry through brexit and the remaining voice was missing and the
7:51 am
debate was so much the poorer for not including jo swinson to be able to represent those remainers out there. this is a brexit election, and half the debate was missing from it. and some of the format was just a bit weird as well, i thought. the thing that struck me was that on the one hand you had jeremy corbyn, who couldn't say where he stood. he was going to negotiate a deal and then put it to the people, but would he campaign to remain or not? he basically underlined what we already know, which is that the labour party is not a remain party. and then borisjohnson who, as we know, has a casual relationship with the truth. i think the most shocking thing actually was the changing of the twitter handle of cchq press, to suggest they were an independent fa ct suggest they were an independent fact checker. that i thought was utterly outrageous at a time when there were many questions about do you trust borisjohnson, and at the same time that twitter handle being changed, i don't think that was a
7:52 am
good look. louise hasjust put those points to you, as well. the problem is, i know you said thatjo swinson should have been in that debate last night. isn't there an issue with your leader? a recent yougov poll suggested that the more people get to know the leader, the more her popularity and the lib dem popularity and the lib dem popularity tips. that is a real problem, isn't it, three weeks out from the election? i don't feel that on the doorsteps at all. people do likejo she gave a brilliant interview, and it is notjust about the leader, it is also about the party. and i am talking about our bold offer for education today. party. and i am talking about our bold offerfor education today. it is not just about stopping bold offerfor education today. it is notjust about stopping brexit, either. it is about what comes next. what we're saying as we. brexit. but that extra money we would get from growing our economy we would plough into the best investment that we could make in our country, which is in education. the thing is, you have made the campaign aboutjo swinson. understandably, she is a recent leader, she is on the side of the bus, and! leader, she is on the side of the bus, and i would imagine you would be desperately hoping for that to gain real traction, and that is not what is happening in that yougov poll. i know you say there is a
7:53 am
difference when you are on the streets, but you would want to see, surely, a much larger rise in her popularity and the popularity of the lib dem is based on your approach. absolutely right. of course we are looking at that object. and all parties want it. but there are still 22 days to go until polling day. a lot ca n 22 days to go until polling day. a lot can happen in that time, and i do believe that when people start to seejo swinson, particularly up against the underwhelming choice of borisjohnson against the underwhelming choice of boris johnson and jeremy corbyn, against the underwhelming choice of borisjohnson and jeremy corbyn, we are standing in 611 seats across this country, on a clear manifesto promised to stop brexit and plough the money into public- that
