country goes to the polls, one of movement. 20.3 stones. for andy ruiz junior. his trainersaid he movement. 20.3 stones. for andy ruiz junior. his trainer said he wanted him lighter but he comes in over a the last big chances to persuade stone heavier. you have to wonder, voters. how would we be better off has he enjoyed the trappings of being champion a little too much. on compared to what we already have as a member of the eu? can you social media there are pictures of guarantee it will happen next year? on brexit, they attacked each other. his new car, new house. if it goes what i have not heard from the leader of the labour party, this deal thinks he can get in three into the later rounds, could it months' time, who is going to negotiate it? who was going to secure it? what are you claiming the favour anthonyjoshua? how much do document show? it shows clearly you think that defeat injune there are going to be charges, the will be weighing onjoshua's mind? he was really hurt by ruiz, i’ug there are going to be charges, the rug going to be customs checks, it should have perhaps been restrictions on trade between stopped before it was. britain and northern ireland. what this is both a physical and mental challenge because anthonyjoshua, the document also says is northern you wonder how much he has healed from that defeat. his physically fit ireland is part of the customs territory of the uk. all his and confident but mentally, is the political life he has campaigned to actually over what happened ? break up that union and supported and confident but mentally, is the actually over what happened? andy ruiz actually over what happened? andy ruinunior will go into the fight knowing he can hurt anthonyjoshua. the ira and that campaign violently
6:05 am
to destroy it. the prime minister this is potentially a defining fight for both men. defeat for anthony should show a degree of honesty and it isa should show a degree of honesty and it is a question of openness on all of this. he says you have supported joshua puts his career in a difficult position. many thanks people who are opposed to the union? what i have done is always wanted to indeed. a big british crowd see a peace process in northern ireland and that is exactly what we expected. it is live. a quarter to have got and thank you to the labour government who negotiated it. labour nine the ring start. wa nts voters government who negotiated it. labour wants voters to think about a lot more than brexit. it costs a lot to the football's been non—stop this week, just the five train asa more than brexit. it costs a lot to train as a nurse but the starting premier league matches this afternoon but there's a biggie at the etihad. salary alone. how would you deal the manchester derby, pep guardiola's city are looking to eat into liverpool's 11 point with the shortage of nurses and ensure the end a chance can retain lead at the top of the table, united are 11 points behind city them? —— the nhs. but they had a good win a few days ago against spurs. confidence is a strange thing in football, sometimes. ensure the end a chance can retain them? -- the nhs. a bit later it you can get performances and results like we had on wednesday night became six new hospitals. he seems and it boosts us so much to have a problem with the figures and i know our boys will be up for it. stop we have a clear agenda to upgrade 20 hospitals, build 40 new 5:30 is the start of the game ones. the cash allocation for the and the players decide
6:06 am
who is going to win. whole hospital built is a 46 but we are putting the seed funding now. the rest, of course, both parties faced questions about history is huge and the team, the quality of the players how they would pay for all their they have is always there, promises and with a question of always has been there, trust so high on the agenda... what and you have to try to beat them and we try today to speak punishment is appropriate for a little bit with the players politicians who lie during political campaigns? they should be made to go about what they are as a team and what they should do to win. oi'i campaigns? they should be made to go on to their knees... through the it's the european champions cup in rugby union this weekend, bath are having a tough time of it. chamber of commerce scolding they are stuck at the bottom of their group after being beaten themselves with copies of their 34—17 clemont auvergne at the rec. offending documents which claim to the french ran in four tries prove one thing and actually prove to secure a bonus point, with samuel ezeala twice something quite differently. when people paint slogans on the side of crossing the line. a bus that are totally unsustainable, perhaps it is time we do have an independent monitoring of they go back to the top of the pool. what goes on. actually, if we look bath have lost all three of their games so far nigel bond's run at the uk at the numbers, the gross figure we snooker championship is over pay to the eu, the number is going the 54—year—old knocked out up. with fault suggesting that the world championjudd trump warriors are ahead, that may suit mr the 54—year—old knocked out
6:07 am
the world champion this week. johnson more than mr colbert but but he was beaten by last with a few days left in the campaign year's runner up mark allen, nothing is certain. who edged a final—frame decider to win 6—5 and reach we'll be speaking to parties the semi—finals, where he'll from across the political spectrum play stephen maguire. this morning, getting there was a huge shock with the three—time winner reaction to that debate. john higgins beaten by the chinese a jury in california has teenager yan bingtao, acquitted the tech entrepreneur who'd already knocked out world and tesla founder, elon musk, number four neil robertson. of defaming a british caver bingtao now takes on his compatriot who he called "pedo guy" on twitter. vernon unsworth, who ding junhui in the other semi—final helped rescue 12 boys and their football coach from a flooded cave in thailand last year, had been seeking almost cove rage coverage across the bbc. a lot of big names knocked out in york this £150 million in damages. dave lee has more. week, if you like your snooker. see elon musk entered court on friday you later on. good morning. for the fourth and now final day of this trial. what has surely been the most there are just five days left intense, not to mention expensive examination ever of a single tweet. until voters head to the polls to choose who will be how many of you? prime minister. that tweet, sent in july 2018, last night, came in the midst of the miraculous boris johnson and jeremy corbyn debated head—to—head for the last rescue of 12 thai boys time — clashing over brexit, and their football coach the nhs and the economy. from a flooded cave. we can speak now to sam gyimah from the liberal democrats, vernon unsworth, a british who joins us from westminster. man who lived nearby, thank you for your time. did you was instrumental in
6:08 am
advising that effort. watch the debate? i got a bit of it. elon musk also traveled to the region, with a specially designed mini submarine. frankly i thought it was boring and i heard your introduction, we do not in a tv interview mr unsworth choose who was going to be prime called it a" pr stunt", minister in this country when we calling mr musk to snap back, vote at the polls. we vote for a using the phrase "pedo guy". he later deleted the tweet party and the party with the largest but vernon unsworth sued him majority forms a government. for defamation, saying he had watching the debate, this whole wrongly been accused of paedophilia. elon musk was describing court presentation of our politics, is that we have a presidential system, as a billionaire bully, we do not have a presidential system a man who dropped a nuclear bomb into the life of vernon unsworth. but a party system. people vote for but the jury said the tweet parties not presidents. have the was an insult but not an accusation, liberal democrats right now with a view which could set a precedent such a short time to go before when it comes to libel cases involving social media. people take the vote got a problem? this verdict sends a signal, and one signal only, that you can make any no, we do not have a problem. what accusation you want to, we face at this time, is a high as vile as it may be, as damaging at it may be, brexit government are willing to as untrue as it may be, light... if i may, i would and someone can get away with it. brexit government are willing to light... if! may, i would like brexit government are willing to light... if! may, iwould like to concentrate on the question. i was the only thing i'm going to say is,
6:09 am
the jury got this right, answering the question. the question and we don't have any further was in relation to whether at this comment at this time. stage there is some kind of a problem because when we look at the reporter: how is mr musk? polls, the suggestion from the polls everyone is well. thank you. and we treat them all with caution, ultimately mr unsworth's lawyers were unable to prove that his life is that your popularity, your had been sufficiently negatively impacted. pa rty‘s indeed in the days after the tweet, is that your popularity, your party's popularity has fallen since the defence argued mr unsworth the beginning of the campaign. which was the focus of celebration i was answering if you were to give and praise, not suspicion. mea it means that while ill—judged i was answering if you were to give me a few seconds to lay out the argument. we of course are under tweets may have cost mr musk millions of dollars in the past, pressure but part of the reason we it was not to be the case this time. i accept the jury verdict, take it on the chin, are under pressure is because of this presentation as though we have and move on. a red— blue fight and that is the dave lee, bbc news. only choice. in this sense we are targeting to win, where we are a bushfire that's burning out competitive, we are the ones taking of control near sydney votes of the conservatives are may take weeks to put out, according to australian authorities. in recent days, severalfires have taking votes of the labour party combined to form what emergency services because there are millions of people are calling a "mega blaze" on a belt of land about an hours' in this country who do not want a drive north of the city. ha rd in this country who do not want a hard brexit government or a hard our correspondent phil mercer
6:10 am
joins us from sydney now. left labour government and they see voting for the liberal democrat as the best of both worlds and it says can you give us the latest update? where we are competitive, we are doing very well and there will be conditions have massively eased surprises on election night. why is today, saturday, but the danger still persists. that "mega fire" you jo swinson not making an impact? there was a head—to—head debate and describe is the combination of five separate bushfires to the north of it was boris johnson versus there was a head—to—head debate and it was borisjohnson versusjeremy sydney. that has created this huge fire front of about 40 miles. this corbyn and presenting this election asa corbyn and presenting this election as a presidential system puts pressure on smaller parties... fire front of about 40 miles. this fire is bigger in size than the you're blaming the media and the broadcast outlets forjohn swinson's syd ney fire is bigger in size than the sydney metropolitan area and so you inability to make a mark in the can understand, when the authorities say they are not quite sure if or when they will ever be able to compactness of the state jo extinguish it. one official were inability to make a mark in the compactness of the statejo swinson. talking to earlier today said only iam not, compactness of the statejo swinson. i am not, in terms of how the campaign is perceived because you flooding rain would be able to have a head—to—head debate leads extinguish these types of fires the people to think and as you said at authorities are trying to do is contain the fires, to beat them away the start of the problem, who was from populated areas and so far they going to be prime minister? we as a have done a pretty heroicjob here
6:11 am
party ca n going to be prime minister? we as a party can be a block on the extremes in new south wales. more than 2000 that our country faces. we do not firefighters are on the ground, supported by a squadron of water wa nt that our country faces. we do not want boris johnson and that our country faces. we do not want borisjohnson and nigel farage bombing aircraft. it can be a to ride off into the sunset and impose any brexit they want. and perilous enterprise. we heard of a helicopter forced to crash land also notjeremy corbyn. while fighting one fire. the pilot only suffered thankfully only minor impose any brexit they want. and also not jeremy corbyn.” impose any brexit they want. and also not jeremy corbyn. i notice that you said in that answer thatjo injuries. across eastern australia, swinson is not going to be prime new south wales and queensland, about 140 fires continued to burn minister we're dismayed when she and we are only in the first week of said at the beginning that she thought she could be?” summer. and we are only in the first week of summer. looking at some of the said at the beginning that she thought she could be? i think to say that you are ambitious for yourself images. in terms of the geography, and your country is nothing new. it we mentioned this majorfire, this is like any football team setting "mega fire". how close is it to the out to when the league. it would be major urban areas? it is pretty ridiculous if you didn't. —— when. close to cities under the central but if you are a third—party you are coast of new south wales, about an under pressure but we are still in hour was drive to the north of the position to stop the madness of syd ney hour was drive to the north of sydney and you can stand in the either a hard brexit or a hard left centre of australia's biggest city government. we must stop it because and appreciate the danger and the
6:12 am
thatis government. we must stop it because that is where the interests of our scale of these bushfires because once again sydney has been shrouded country lies. the liberal democrat parties are now saying the priority by this horrible, toxic smoking is to stop a hard brexit... haze. health warnings have been parties are now saying the priority is to stop a hard brexit. .. that has a lwa ys is to stop a hard brexit. .. that has always been our priority. it is not issued at many weekend sporting activities have had to be cancelled. new. let us look at a scenario that this haze has come and gone for week may lay out in a constituency. you after week in a sydney and we are not expecting much respite to what have a straight labour conservative we expect to be a very hot and dry summer. margin. one of those two parties is we expect to be a very hot and dry summer. thank you very much. guaranteed to be the winner. the lib dem art so far out of the equation. the record held by elvis presley for the most number one albums do you encourage voters who might be by a solo artist in thinking of voting liberal democrats the uk has been equalled by robbie williams. to use their vote tactically? no, did you know what surprises me about because most of these considerations this, idid did you know what surprises me about this, i did not realise he released of who is ahead and who is behind 50 solo albums. # she offers me are of who is ahead and who is behind a re often of who is ahead and who is behind are often based on the 2017 election results. 2.5 years is a long time in protection, a lot of love and affection, whether i am right or politics, in this country, at this
6:13 am
particular time. we are finding that there are seats where the liberal wrong and down i fall, whatever it democrats may have come a third last timea democrats may have come a third last time a better place to challenge the may tell me, i know that life will conservatives becausejeremy not break me... # a look at one of corbyn's polarity ratings are the worst in history but also boris johnson's government has the worst the big hits from the past. popularity rating in history. the beatles hold the overall record routeing who is a competitor based with 15 uk number one albums. on what happened a couple of years the christmas present is his 13th ago basically fails to understand to hit the top spot, which means only two what goes on the ground. of his solo albums have failed to reach number one. ago basically fails to understand what goes on the groundm ago basically fails to understand one of the things that is a very what goes on the ground. if you are advising not to vote tactically, it obvious, he is never sure whether it means more conservative mp5 get in carries on is what he says. i am and surely the notion of a grateful for the carries on is what he says. i am second—round referendum which is what you want gets further away.” gratefulfor the moment. he has did not say people should not vote equalled elvis presley. tactically, you are asking who should stand and shoot in. we know time now for a look at the papers. the daily mail leads on call to arms from borisjohnson. from our targeting that in many of "we must fight for every single those seats we are competitive and vote," he says in an interview with the paper. we are competitive because we can the mail says voters face win votes from both sides in a way
6:14 am
the "starkest choice in decades". that the labour party cannot. that joseph mccann‘s conviction for a series of rapes and kidnappings leads the guardian. is why we have to stand and make the it reports mccann had been mistakenly released from prison case for liberal democratic values. for a previous violent offence. i think it is also right that in an election, voters have their cut the daily mirror reports what it says is a shock new claim choices and we have given a involving prince andrew. the paper says a second alleged clear—cut choice notjust on brexit victim of us sex offender jeffrey epstein claims but how to manage the public she had sex with the duke. finances, the institute for studies it adds there is no indication has said ours is the most sensible that the woman is claiming to have been coerced into seeing the prince. and the most pro—business manifesto prince andrew has denied and the most pro—business manifesto all claims against him. and voters deserve that choice. and the la times reports on the jury's decision to acquit tesla founder, elon musk, thank you for your time this of defaming a british caver who he called "pedo guy" on twitter. morning. here's susan with a look at this morning's weather. some high winds and some rain? here's susan with a look absolutely, but we start off on at this morning's weather. quite a quiet footing, so you may wonder where it is all going to go good morning. is it very windy? you wrong but i will show you in a moment. the story for the weekend, as naga said rightly, strong winds sunday into monday and heavy rain. here we are at the moment with
6:15 am
are on the money. today is relatively tight but tomorrow u nsettled here we are at the moment with unsettled ridge of high pressure which is making a quiet start to the widespread gales across the uk and i weekend and as it comes up to the think we will have stormy conditions west so in the atlantic it is going to get involved in the mix and especially adjacent to the irish change the picture dramatically. for sea, the coast of wales and the south—west of england. showers as many, dry weather today, certainly for england and wasn't the best of well. a bit of a ridge into the the sunshine early on in thicker cloud in the north—west is the isobars meaning afternoon progresses, northern well. a bit of a ridge into the isoba rs meaning that well. a bit of a ridge into the isobars meaning that date gets off ireland clouding over but i think toa isobars meaning that date gets off to a fine start for the majority of trying to love the darkened rain the uk. this will change things for affecting much of scotland by the time to get into the afternoon but scotla nd the uk. this will change things for scotland in the afternoon. england still pretty mild, temperatures 9— and wales, showers fizzling out. the 10 degrees. overnight the weather front sweeps across the uk, low cloud building but still some pressure centre to the north quite a sunshine into the ease. northern bit of rain out of the front for a ireland largely fine until after couple of hours all parts of the uk before it heads into the continent dark. temperatures quite on the mild by the end of the night. wendy even overnight tonight, although it does side. overnight tonight, this keep things in the mild side, but there is the low for sunday, as weather front will sweep its way isobars tightly plucked, the wind howling across the uk, the show is across the uk so a good couple of coming in and because of the hours of heavy rain. it stays windy strength of the wind, many of them will also get a chance to track a good way eastwards, so along to the s0 hours of heavy rain. it stays windy so overnight temperatures are not full away too much and the showers south—east of england into
6:16 am
oxfordshire across the midlands will start to pack in. looking at north—east of england central belt the pressure chart, you get a lot of scotla nd north—east of england central belt of scotland and then went to be at for your money thanks to this area times and some will be heavy. of low pressure to the north. the temperatures 10— 12 degrees wind will be very strong across the typically so that is the sunday uk on sunday. eastern areas with a daytime. in the evening overnight bit of shelter. should continue. into monday, it is all about the worst of the strong winds and some pretty heavy showers as well, very showers eastwards. into the squally about the irish seacoast, midlands, across northern england and some could be wintry. in the especially, overnight sunday into monday. the winds potentially strong high ground of scotland and england. enough to do damage and maybe even lead to some disruption first thing double figures across the southern on monday mornings ijust hope that half of the uk. this is a windy bit in the back of your mind for of the story, sunday night into travelling on monday morning and perhaps worth checking in on how monday when the isobars squeezed things are looking, especially on together and a weather feature which the road and rail networks. and then will bring stormy seas. went gusting monday daytime, it does start to become quieter again with a little bit of a ridge heading our way, up will bring stormy seas. went gusting up to 70 miles per hour and that trying to bring us some sunshine and could mean disruption particularly dry weather but do swing around into if you're travelling on monday a northerly air stream so it will change again for monday, dry, morning. with checking in with your radio station. for the rest of the bright, but there will be quite a cutting northerly wind and it will week, topsy—turvy. one day quite feel considerably cooler so the top temperatures on monday 6—8d just cold. monday a northerly wind about covers it and then through the
6:17 am
chasing down the uk but some week ahead we continue to flick pleasa nt chasing down the uk but some pleasant sunshine but further areas of low pressure winging their way in backwards and forwards with mild wet days and chilly but brighter ones. is the week goes on. monday, a lot of sunshine, chilly and showers in back to you guys. i well, it is the east. temperatures lower than we winter! thanks, susan! it is 48 will see this weekend. looking minutes past seven. we'll be back with the headlines at 8:00, but for now it's time for newswatch. further ahead, into the way, milder hello and welcome to newswatch with me, samira ahmed. again on tuesday but that wind is all other major party leaders have faced the questioning howling away. when they, colder with of andrew neil, but not boris johnson. is this the fault of the bbc? sunny spells and showers. a lot going on in the coming days. the and in a fractious campaign, have bbc interviews helped strong wind to look out for the or hindered the election process? second half of the weekend. now it's time for the film review. interviews with party leaders during election campaigns are often feisty affairs, and andrew neil is widely considered one of the bbc‘s toughest interrogators, as he showed this week with his questioning ofjo swinson and nigel farage. borisjohnson's failure to commit himself firmly to andrew neil's hello and a very warm welcome to the questioning initially led the bbc last week to say the prime minister would not be on the andrew marr show
6:18 am
film review on bbc news and to take until he committed to us through this week's cinema the andrew neil interview. releases is mark kermode, good to but after friday's knife attack on london bridge, the corporation withdrew that see you. what have you been ultimatum, arguing that it was now watching? we have ordinary love. in the public interest for him to appear. here are the thoughts there is something wrong with me. we have motherless brooklyn which is a of maria jeffrey. pet project for edward norton who directs and stars. and lucy in the i am dismayed and disgusted by the way the tories have played the bbc. sky, natalie portman gets lost in why was boris johnson allowed space while on earth. and that is a the oxygen of publicity for his election campaign on the andrew marr show — a u—turn, given the bbc very interesting and a mixed bag of ban after he'd declined a week in terms of themes. talk to have his policies and behaviour scrutinised by andrew neil — through your first choice. starting a process that the other party with ordinary love which is written by mccafferty, a playwright with a leaders had been through. couple who have in the past a but if the suggestion was that tragedy, a loss, but they are living borisjohnson would have an easy with it and dealing with it and we time on the andrew marr show, meet them at the beginning of the that turned out to be far movie and they are doing a walk that from the case. she is kind of some the age when in a often acrimonious conversation, the presenter pressed they start to get aches and aches the prime minister and pains and they need to stay on the circumstances under which the london bridge healthy and she then feels a lump in attacker usman khan had been released from prison. her breast and he says i am sure it
6:19 am
is nothing and she says well, i there was no question.... don't know. she says ok, go and see under the conservatives, the doctor and whatever it is we he was let out. no. under the conservatives... will go through it together. because because — because... this was a conservative decision. what happens is they discover it is because of changes... you have been in something of a have to go through power for ten years! medical intervention and despite the because of changes to the law that fa ct medical intervention and despite the fact he has said i will be with you were brought in by the labour party — that i voted against. through all of it, necessarily their scoffs. you were in power for ten years path start to divert but the and you've done nothing about it! brilliance of the movie is that it jeremy corbyn voted in favour of. manages to intertwine something for ten years, you've done nothing about it. which is very, very big in their he voted in favour of lives happening with the small tiny automatic early release. that was... every day mundane details of being for ten years, you've done nothing about it. in hospital. here is a clip. what a you cannot retrospectively change... for ten years, you have done nothing about it. dave mann was one of the thousands of viewers to object to the interview and recorded rubbish way to spend a night. i'm his reaction on video. not sure. i went out last week. just i'm a huge admirer of andrew marr and watch his programme most sundays, but i was appalled at the way he interviewed boris johnson last week. he kept posing questions and then, when boris was about to answer, would not let him answer and kept asking more questions or talking look at what the neighbours put out. over his answers. i know it is summer but what is the plan for the garden. don't know. in fact, he seemed more concerned about moving onto the next question than actually hearing what borisjohnson had to say.

well, with me to discuss that well, you should know. but can be and other issues around the bbc‘s vital information at some point. election campaign coverage vital. really? yes, vital. why don't is the editorial director of bbc news, kamal ahmed. thank you for coming on newswatch. you go for a walk? no. no, i will so the london bridge attack had already become politicised. so viewers are right, aren't they, stay and watch tv. and that to me to say that there wasn't a case for the prime minister to go on the andrew marr show? i think there was a very strong case. the prime minister had already made a statement about how law changes says it is an intimate portrait of a marriage about as much as anything, may have affected the treatment of the perpetrator of this crime. not just about breast and i think audiences, quite rightly, would want to see marriage about as much as anything, notjust about breast cancer, it the bbc interviewing is... no, it is, it is about them facing something in which they say the prime minister. they will be absolutely together all they will be absolutely together all the way through it but necessarily they are separated during the so there was a significant change process but also, it is one of those in the political weather because of the events films in which people have conversations in which they appear on london bridge and i think to be talking about nothing but they it was quite right for the bbc to say that the prime minister are actually talking about everything while talking about was available and that the bbc was the place where that interview nothing so the couple have this should take place. lovely relationship in which they kind of bicker with each other in an 0k. it's pretty obvious, isn't it, affectionate way and it is kind of a that the bbc should've pinned down way of saying i love you without all the party leaders before running any of the andrew neil interviews? saying i love you and complaining because now you didn't about putting the bins out and i get the balance right on the andrew neil interviews. mean, i thought this was beautifully why didn't you? so, these are very
6:21 am
complicated issues. done, direct by glenn laban and lisa i am involved in question time, for example, and when you're doing ba rros done, direct by glenn laban and lisa barros d'sa who made that fantastic a whole series of programmes, movie good vibrations about the to say that you need to nail them belfast punk scene and terry houli all down before the campaign, or before announcing any of them, andi belfast punk scene and terry houli and i think this is leslie that is — has two big problems. manville's best performance, i really hope that she gets wicked sized at the bafta awards. really hope that she gets wicked sized at the bafta awardslj really hope that she gets wicked sized at the bafta awards. i love her and sized at the bafta awards. i love not before announcing any of them! herandi sized at the bafta awards. i love her and i could watch in anything and everything to mike league's and first of all, it would give you can see this is just... the parties veto over us doing anything, so it will be one party and everything to mike league's and you can see this isjust. .. and i lover in phantom thread as well but that said "we're not doing it," that what really brilliant about it is would mean we'd have to abandon everything we're doing. firstly, it has the smack of and also, we also have authenticity, i would mccafferty‘s to be practical, samira. diaries change, events change. writing in some sense from we need to offer various experience and after they have been different interview slots. for a meeting with the doctors and and if... the doctors they look, on a scale of one to five, one we not worried and i don't think people five we are, this is a three, and feel it's about a veto — they feel it's about the prime minister playing games they have a conversation about and avoiding scrutiny. whether three is closer to five than well. we offered many, many different one and it is exactly the kind of opportunities for the prime minister to sit down, do the interview with andrew neil. conversation, the absurdist that option is still open. conversation, the absurdist conversation you would have. i mean, there's nothing we can do to compel them to appear. i really believed in the relationship all the way through and 0k. i completely believed in the characters and i felt the film was we just have to do our best.
6:22 am
done with a fantastic sensitivity and it is funny, i have seen it so too many interviews, when they do happen, three times and the third time was viewers feel, can seem to end up in arguments without offering in belfast with the audience laughed genuine insights for a lot because there were a lot of voters in an election. and the marr encounter drugs in it and it is a film full of with borisjohnson, when you couldn't even hear each life and full of — honestly, ijust of them talking over each other, it was just painful, wasn't it? loved it. i can't wait, even having been through it, i cannot wait to no, i don't think it was painful. see it on every level. yeah, it's i think that he got some interesting information out great. as we say, a mixed week in of the prime minister — the fact that 74 other people terms of themes so talk us through. who had been released from prison under possibly similar terms rather different. this project that to the perpetrator of the crimes of london bridge was edward norton has been trying to get a very important point. off the ground ages, and novel from doctorjonathan lethem, off the ground ages, and novel from doctor jonathan lethem, based off the ground ages, and novel from now, of course, sometimes doctorjonathan lethem, based in the 50s, edward norton plays a private politicians don't want to answer the question that's put to them, investigator with tourette's syndrome who spends the movie and i think it's quite right attempting to find out what happened for andrew to say "well, hang on. to his mental who was killed at the i wasn't actually asking the question you're answering. beginning of the movie and as the i was answering — i was asking a different question." plot unravels, we discover that it ok, stay with us. we're going to move is to do with a huge thought of — to on to another issue now. allegations against the bbc of political bias are par do with property and conspiracy and for the course during election government and a bunch of other campaigns, but those who suspect things i would kind of throws but the corporation of favouring the conservative party this time chinatown but at the centre of it, round point to two incidents, which we have featured on newswatch. the interactions between the characters, a stellar cast with the replacement on breakfast of this year's pictures of borisjohnson willem dafoe, gugu mbatha—raw, and laying a wreath on remembrance
6:23 am
sunday, where he had been criticised for his appearance with what was it looks wonderful, it is considered more flattering footage of him from three years ago. brilliantly designed by beth nichol and it has a very fine and evocative and the cutting from a news report of audience laughter directed score but as for norton, he does at the prime minister during a question time leaders special. com pletely score but as for norton, he does completely commit to the role of the the bbc has apologised for both mistakes, but questions are still being asked about how and why they came about. private investigator with tourette's, which makes him sort of at the same time, there's been criticism of the airtime given co nsta ntly interru pt tourette's, which makes him sort of constantly interrupt himself with to photo opportunities and stunts, what appears to be an inner voice. such as borisjohnson's spreading a scone last week. it isa what appears to be an inner voice. it is a strange film, quite long, andi it is a strange film, quite long, and i think that it is something that you have to give yourself over to but if you are willing to let it work its spell, it is quite a slow—paced film, i actually think it is quite rich and you can get lost designed to show politicians in the world quite easily and i found it quite immersive, quite an in a good light, there's the suspicion here again immersive experience. terrific call that the conservatives have benefited more than other parties and terrific performance by alec have, with tony padilla begging for: baldwin. i really want to lose in the sky to be good because i love films about space and exploration and... i think films about space and exploration and... ithinki am films about space and exploration and... i thinki am alone films about space and exploration and... i think i am alone voice this because i liked it. you are a lone well, kamal ahmed is still with us. voice from everything i have read! all the political leaders do try these stage—managed stunts, natalie portman is an astronaut who like the scone or they're looks down at the earth from space in a boxing ring, to make
6:24 am
and then finds it impossible to themselves look good. readjust to life back on the ground. why is bbc news pandering to them? here is a clip. i'mjust well, we're not. i mean, these are just pictures that audiences see all the time. readjust to life back on the ground. here is a clip. i'm just a little they're well able to judge how bit... i don't know. you know? say important these things are. and they have to be put up i'io bit... i don't know. you know? say 110 more. against the huge amounts bit... i don't know. you know? say no more. we have all been there. of information that is on our online site. the rest of the package, been where? these are all tiny little bits. no more. we have all been there. been where ? what no more. we have all been there. been where? what did i say?|j i think the point about all these no more. we have all been there. been where? what did i say? i don't allegations around the bbc, know, but you said it. that is... these are things that are on air for a matter of seconds. we produce hundreds of hours just feel a little off. no, not off. of election coverage — really serious, really in—depth, it is more... you know how it is. really holding our political leaders to account. you go up there, you see... everything. the whole universe. and of course, you can take tiny little everything here looks... so small. clips of a second here or a second there, but that doesn't reflect our we are so small. and then you splash overall election coverage. ok, well, it's interesting you say that because obviously, you know, viewers feel down and you go to, what? that it does — it adds up. applebee's? monday night football? and the bbc‘s — it's fair to say it clip your toenails? you know, all i hasn't had a good election because it's already had can think about is... when can i go to apologise over news content — we mentioned a couple of specific stories there. and the explanation for the editing back? and in a way, the whole film
6:25 am
off of the question time audience laughter — it was concerning. is kind of encapsulated in that exchange that all you want to do is it didn't actually save time wonder how when you can get back and and there was something editorially asa important that was lost wonder how when you can get back and as a result of it she cannot adjust in taking off that laughter. to life but down here, her marriage what is going on at bbc news? sta rts to life but down here, her marriage starts to fall apart and she becomes it did save some time. we've admitted that it... immuno unhinged and she is so two seconds! desperate to get back on another no, it was a few seconds. we've admitted it was a mistake. mission she to seek outlets, she sta rts mission she to seek outlets, she starts to break rules which he has again, this is in the context never done up until this point and there is of course a true life case of hundreds of hours of material. that piece came from a question time in the background of all of this but special done by the bbc i think it is important that the the night before. film stands or falls on its own it was run in full terms and what i liked about it and on all sorts of output. i think you saw it in that shot was that was one outing where it was trimmed natalie portman does have one of and a mistake was made. you say we've had a bad election. those faces which can, you know, telegraph a huge amount of we have had the question time information and when she is saying that thing about i have looked out special — all four of the main party of the earth and now i cannot, i leaders on air, prime time, bbc one. absolutely believe that is the case. plus, for me, that is the interest of movies about spaces that it does the seven—leader debate. to your inner self, not your outer andrew neil interviews self, the idea of escaping, you withjeremy corbyn and jo swinson and nicola sturgeon and nigel farage know, the earth and looking down on one kind of expensive that would give you when it runs through a were all fantastic pieces of work. movie like the night configuration which i love or this year there was all right, kamal. thank you very much.
6:26 am
we've got another issue. a swedish film and they are throughout the campaign, basically about the same thing which broadcasters have been showing is once you have been up there, how a wide variety of debate programmes do you deal with life but down here? involving senior politicians and the questions of who is invited the answer is i have no idea and i where and who actually turns up and takes part have been as fraught thought the film that are pretty convincing job of letting me know here as they have with those how her character could not deal interviews with party leaders. with life but down on earth. also it we're recording before friday night's head—to—head leaders debate on bbc one between borisjohnson and jeremy corbyn, but for weeks was a very evocative score byjeff have been receiving viewer complaints like this russo and originally the part was from alice hovanessian. earmarked for reese witherspoon which kind of reminded me of reese witherspoon‘s film in, wild. i loved that film. i think you may like this than some other critics have done because as you mentioned, it has not been warmly received. because as you mentioned, it has not been warmly receivedlj because as you mentioned, it has not been warmly received. i love it when you go out on a limb! best out is a rerelease and my gosh, this will look gorgeous. i'm bella's of cherbourg, one of the bfi's musical season, they have been celebrating musicals and tommy was out recently and we spoke about that and this is so let's talk about this, kamal. i mean, at a time when, you know, dark to me from 1964 think it is and women mp5 are quitting parliament in significant numbers i have only ever seen it on the because of abuse and hostility, so the decision to exclude the only small screen, send it on video, female national party leader, jo swinson — nick clegg
6:27 am
before dvd, video! so this is a was there with david cameron and gordon brown in 2010 — treat and the chance to see this on it looks like very poorjudgement big screen and of course it was in by bbc news, doesn't it? the news when la la land was back in cinemas because of course damien giselle talked about how it had been so all these leaders' debates which you've referred to should be an influence and lovely to see it in taken as a set of programmes. cinema. glorious. and this week? i this is the leaders debate, liked blinded by the light. i like it, really warmhearted, and does not six days before the election. — i mean, there are some scenes we actually gasped out loud at the ..so as i say, on question time — on the question time special, racism. i thought it was very... you had jo swinson, nicola sturgeon, extraordinary. terrifying. based on jeremy corbyn and borisjohnson in one programme. jo swinson has also been involved a real—life situation, somebody in many other special programmes to do with the election. when it comes to who appears growing up in luton and being in in the prime ministerial debate, love with the songs of bruce we compare, or we test our output, springsteen and encountering kind of against the result in 2017. in the 19805 racism and in that election, 80% — springsteen and encountering kind of in the 19805 raci5m but finding an escape through the songs of bruce more than 80% of the votes — springsteen whose songs are, you went to the conservative party or the labour party, know, getting in cars and driving to and that fashions the way we look reservoirs and what i love about it i5 reservoirs and what i love about it at how we build our programmes. isi reservoirs and what i love about it is i mean, iam nota huge reservoirs and what i love about it is i mean, i am not a huge bruce springsteen fan but i thought it brought tho5e springsteen fan but i thought it brought those songs to life in a way that made sense to me. and i do i hear what you say, but viewers will say,
6:28 am
"look, it doesn't matter how many think you are right, the portrayal other programmes you have with other of the racism, the central character leaders, the bbc is promoting this as the big one. it is six days ahead encounters, but it is funny and warm of the election." andi encounters, but it is funny and warm and i confess, i cried more than we're not saying it is the big one. once on it and i thought it really it is a very important moment. worked as an emotional piece and i the prime ministerial debates? thought it was really terrific. worked as an emotional piece and i it's the prime minister debate. thought it was really terrificlj thought it was really terrific.” laughed and cried and every time there are many, many there was a scene of appalling different ways of engaging. one programme out of all that set raci5m i was thinking but this is of programmes is defined the 19805 and this is still going by who could actually be prime minister on december the 12th, on! i know, i know. and that's! after december the 12th. blew me away and it was quite clever and that is one — i thought because it looked a bit that is the prime ministerial debate frothy on the outside but actually between jeremy corbyn and boris johnson. it was saying serious things. the director has a track record of kamal ahmed, thank you very much. dealing with serious subjects but in because of the general election, there's no newswatch next week a way which is kinda very, very acce55i ble a way which is kinda very, very accessible and i also think that or until the new year, but please continue to get in touch their work is important because it with your opinions about what you see on bbc tv news, i5 their work is important because it is his story and he has turned the online or bbc social media. you can e—mail newswatch, story into something which is kind of acce55i ble story into something which is kind of accessible for a mainstream audience and i imagine you were not you can find us on twitter, audience and i imagine you were not a huge springsteen, i never had you down as a springsteen fan. not particularly but i was fu55ed either you can call us as well, way when it probably isn't allowed and do have a look at previous when it comes to springsteen but... interviews on our website. we'll be back to hear your thoughts did you come out 5inging born to

6:31 am
mr corbyn 5aid labour would our top story. save an nhs which is at breaking there are calls for an independent review into the shocking failures point, and bring brexit to an end by striking a new deal that meant a serial rapist was released from jail by accident — which would be put to a referendum. he then carried out a series of attacks on women a jury in california has and children. acquitted the tech entrepreneur joseph mccann was released earlier this and tesla founder, elon musk, year after an error of defaming a british caver by the probation service. who he called "pedo guy" on twitter. his 11 victims over a 2—week period included a pensioner vernon un5worth, who helped rescue and an 11—year—old boy. 12 boys and their football coach john mcmanus has more. from a flooded cave in thailand last year, had been seeking almost £150 million in damages. joseph mccann captured on cctv in a petrol station. mr musk said his faith the assistant behind the counter has in humanity has been restored. no idea that the customer it's feared a giant bushfire opposite him is a sadistic criminal. that's burning out of control near sydney may take outside in mccann's car, weeks to put out. in recent days several sits a woman too terrified fires have combined to form to attempt to escape. what emergency services are calling a "mega blaze" on a belt of land about an hours' drive north he has already assaulted her after kidnapping her, after she left this club. of the city. a few days later, he abducts since october, australian bushfires have killed six people and destroyed more than 700 homes. another woman near this tube station in london, then, not long after, a third woman. terrible in itself, but instead
6:32 am
of being free to terrorise them, let's look at the spot for today. mccann should have been behind bars. in 2008, he was jailed for an aggravated burglary set the scene, this extraordinary at the home of an 85—year—old man. fight. let's rewind though, that is andy ruiz fight. let's rewind though, that is andy ruinunior, fight. let's rewind though, that is in 2017, he was freed on licence. andy ruiz junior, with fight. let's rewind though, that is andy ruinunior, with his humble the same year he was arrested for new offences and should have “oi"! been recalled to andy ruinunior, with his humble prison, but was not. a year later he was sentenced ——on hat. anthony joshua for his new crimes and should have gone before the parole board before andy ruinunior, with his humble ——on hat. anthonyjoshua is at his lighters which will make him quicker he was considered safe to be freed, instead, at the start of this year, but would that have compromised his he was mistakenly let out and free power? a fantastic documentary to go on to attack 11 women and children. called one night about the fight in yesterday he was convicted of 37 offences, including kidnap and rape. new york and two things stand out. now, richard burgon, labour's shadowjustice secretary, what a huge upset that was for andy has called for an investigation, saying the public must have full ruiz what a huge upset that was for andy ruinunior and what a huge upset that was for andy ruiz junior and should that what a huge upset that was for andy confidence in the justice system. ruinunior and should that fight he wants an independent review into what labour calls "shocking have gone beyond the third round failures" and deep government cuts. because he was clearly concussed and the probation service has his connor lacked in their duty of apologised, with one officer care. a rematch. being demoted and another sacked, but that is little comfort
6:33 am
six months ago, anthonyjoshua to mccann's victims. john mcmanus, bbc news. was beten for the first time, stunned by the rank outsider andy ruinunior we'll discuss this with the former at new york's madison square garden. victims' commissioner baroness newlove in tonight, just outsdie riyadh in saudi arabia, a chance of revenge, redemption and more importantly winning back his three world titles. just a few minutes. nick parrott reports. boris johnson and jeremy corbyn have gone head to head in a tv debate — anthonyjoshua i5 bidding to avenge for the final time before the defeat that shot the boxing the general election next week. world. she thought andy ruiz they put forward competing visions on brexit, the nhs, and the economy, the defeat that shot the boxing world. she thought andy ruinunior would trouble him 5ix and attacked each other‘s plans — world. she thought andy ruinunior but neither scored a knockout blow. would trouble him six months ago now the mexican—american i5 our political correspondent, nick eardley, was there. would trouble him six months ago now the mexican—american is a stone heavier. if he has been resting on with just a few days until the country goes to the polls, his laurels, joshua has not. he is one of the last big chances to persuade voters. how would we be better off kena and alina and once again the from the brexit deal or a future favourite. look at the support, it labout deal compared to what we already have as a member of the eu? is lively. —— kina and li na. can you guarantee that it will happen next year? on brexit, they attacked each other. favourite. look at the support, it is lively. -- kina and li na. it what i have not heard will be even livelier tonight. lose from the leader of the labour party, is this deal that he thinks he can and joshua's career could sink in get in three months' time, the sand. when and he will be back who is going to negotiate it?
6:34 am
who is going to secure this deal? at the top of the profession. last the news came out of what's happening with northern ireland... timea at the top of the profession. last time a big factor basically was he for people who did not hear was not fit enough. this time it the news, what are you claiming the documents show? will be different. 16 stone £30, a they show quite clearly that there are going to be charges, there are going to be customs sign he will hit, move and maintain checks, there are going to be the gap and do it in style. andy restrictions on trade between britain and northern ireland. what the document also says is that northern ireland is part ruiz the gap and do it in style. andy of the customs territory of the uk. ruinunior maybe heavier but he is not underestimating the challenge. all his political life he has campaigned to break up that union he does not want to lose a game, and actually supported for four feel embarrassed. for me, i have decades the ira in their campaign violently to destroy it. accomplished my dreams but want to accomplished my dreams but want to accomplish more dress. joshua would how about the prime minister wa nt to accomplish more dress. joshua would want to shatter those dreams to showing a degree of honesty and so it is a question of openness avoid another nightmare. on all of this. he says you have supported people who are opposed the football‘s been non— to the union your whole life, stop this week, just the five you don't even believe...? premier league matches this what i have done is always afternoon but there's a biggie at the etihad. wanted to see a peace the manchester derby, process in northern ireland pep guardiola's city are looking and that is exactly what we have got to eat into liverpool's 11 point lead at the top of the table, and thank you to the labour united are 11 points behind city government that negotiated it. but they had a good win a few days ago against spurs. labour wants voters to think about a lot more
6:35 am
than brexit next week, though. it costs a lot to train as a nurse confidence is a strange thing in but the starting salaries are low. football, sometimes. you can get how would you deal with the shortage of nurses and ensure performances and results like we had the nhs can retain them? on wednesday night. it boosted so mr corbyn again questioned claims made by the conservatives. on wednesday night and it boosted so much and i know our boys will be announced there was going to be 40 new hospitals. a week later that became 20. a bit later on, it became afraid. six new hospitals. he seems to have a problem 530 is a start of the game and the with the figures about hospital building in britain. players will decide who wins. the team, the quality of the players is we have a very clear agenda, always there, it has always been which is to upgrade 20 hospitals, that and you have to try to beat to build 40 new ones. it is perfectly true that the cash allocation for the whole hospital build is for six initially them and we try today to speak a but we are putting in little bit to the players about what the seed funding now. both parties have faced questions they are as a team. on how they will pay the early kick off for all their promises and, is at goodsion park. with the question of trust everton, who sacked their manager so high on the agenda... marco silva on thursday, take on chelsea. what punishment do you think former striker duncan ferguson, who been on the coaching staff is appropriate for elected politicians who lie for 5 years, has been put during political campaigns? they should be made to go in temporary charge on to their knees... iama ..down through the chamber i am a coach at the moment so i'm of the house of commons scourging themselves with copies
6:36 am

6:39 am
under either of them so i do not rescue of 12 thai boys and their football coach from a flooded cave. envy voters. thankfully in scotland, we have the opportunity to vote for vernon unsworth, a british man the smp and are the main challenges who lived nearby, was instrumental in advising that effort. in all the conservative seeds and we will be doing our best to win as many seeds as possible and keep elon musk also travelled borisjohnson to the region with many seeds as possible and keep boris johnson out. yesterday, nicola a specially designed mini—submarine. in a tv interview mr unsworth called it a "pr stunt", sturgeon, leader of your party, said calling mr musk to snap back, she would support an alliance that using the phrase "pedo guy". would help jeremy she would support an alliance that would helpjeremy corbyn become he later deleted the tweet, prime minister. yetjust a few hours but vernon unsworth sued him for defamation, arguing he had later she says both candidates are a wrongly been accused of paedophilia. danger to the nhs and economy. which elon musk was described in court is it? they are but the reality as a billionaire bully, a man who dropped a nuclear bomb is... voters in england have a into the life of vernon unsworth. but the jury saw it differently. choice between the devil and the they said the tweet was an insult deep blue sea. what we would do is but not an accusation, a view which could set a precedent everything we can to keep boris when it comes to libel cases involving social media. this verdict sends a signal, johnson out of number 10. we cannot and one signal only, deal with more austerity and we do that you can make any accusation
6:40 am
not want boris johnson deal with more austerity and we do not want borisjohnson to have you want to, as vile as it may be, deal with more austerity and we do not want boris johnson to have five yea rs of not want boris johnson to have five years of a majority government because that would be disastrous. as damaging at it may be, as untrue as it may be, faced with a choice, we would rather and someone can get away with it. have a situation where we are in some level of negotiation with the the only thing i'm going to say labour party. a number of policies is the jury got this right, and we don't have any further comment at this time. reporter: how is mr musk with the decision? in that manifesto are in line with everyone is well. thank you. smp policies. i am pleased with the ultimately, mr unsworth's lawyers were unable to prove that his life had been choice. we would rather lock boris sufficiently negatively impacted. johnson out. do you thinkjeremy indeed, in the days after the tweet, the defence argued mr unsworth was the focus of celebration corbyn would be a good prime and praise, not suspicion. minister? not particularly but we it means that while ill—judged tweets may have cost mr musk did not have the opportunity to millions of dollars in the past, choose a party leader for labour. that was not to be the case this time. but faced with the two options, we i accept the jury verdict, take it on the chin, and move on. would rather havejeremy corbyn. we do have concerns about some of their dave lee, bbc news. policies so that is why voters in scotla nd policies so that is why voters in scotland need to support snp. to make sure they work in the interests it's feared a giant bushfire that's burning out of control of scotla nd make sure they work in the interests of scotland rather than the near sydney may take

interests in the south—east of weeks to put out. in recent days, several fires have combined to form what emergency services are calling england. the snp numbers, the a ‘mega blaze‘ on a belt of land about an hour's drive north of the city. our correspondent phil mercer institute for fiscal studies says the snp general election pledges joins us from sydney now. could lead to more austerity. how difficult, impossible to put out, have you added up your numbers? how this has become more unmanageable have you added up your numbers? how have you added up your numbers? how have you got to the point where what than predicted. it is a beast of a you are proposing would lead to austerity in scotland? in 2014 we fire, about one hourfrom north—west did not win the economic argument syd ney fire, about one hourfrom north—west sydney and this is the result of during the independence referendum about five individual fires s0 during the independence referendum so we during the independence referendum so we created the growth commission and it puts forward what the economy combining to create this mega— inferno. in terms of size, it is bigger than sydney‘s metropolitan might look like. if the rules would areas and the authorities say it is have been followed instead of the simply too big to put out. that is billions of cuts in day—to—day not down to the lack of trying, spending, we would have seen an because there is a huge firefighting increase in that. austerity would have been completely reversed so effort on going, given this fire is actually what we want to do is a spreading smoke across much of new great scotland's economy, reduce the south wales and sydney, again deficit by reducing spending by less

shrouded by this horrible toxic haze. there has been a health the rate that we are growing. increasing productivity, population, warning, many weekend sporting activities have continued to be cancelled and authorities say, or participation but the thing is we do not have control of our economyjust now and do not have all the levers, the conditions are easing today but they forecast the return of hot and particularly around immigration and gusty and dangerous conditions on workers rights. so we can not grow tuesday next week. thanks very much. our economy in the way we would like to. you cannot guarantee growth we will have the weather and sport anyway. you cannot say the policies coming up later. the top story. would work because no—one is seeing any significant growth in the uk senior politicians calling for an economy. we have done an assessment orsimilar independent review. economy. we have done an assessment or similar sized countries and looked at the level of growth and we into the "shocking failures" have not said we are going to be the surrounding the case ofjoseph mccann. best of those but to a median level. mccann was released from prison earlier this year after an error by the probation service and went we are significantly underperforming on to carry out a string of sex to similar sized economies. scotland attacks on women and children. we‘re joined now by the former victims commissioner has an amazing amount of potential. and conservative peer, baroness newlove. good morning. fury, disbelief, i natural resources, tighter think anyone hearing the story
6:43 am
resources , today. i feel physically sick to natural resources, tighter resources, a quarter of wind think that these acts were committed resources , resources, a quarter of wind resources, significant perspective to so many people and the agencies of other resources as well so you energy. for out of the top have let these individuals whose universities in the world, with only lives were normal before this person switzerland having more. we have massive potential for our population attacked them, it is disgraceful. i wa nt to and natural resources and we can attacked them, it is disgraceful. i want to praise victims for their courage and bravery it has taken to grow the economy on that basis. with go through to the trial and i all the potential you have, why have you not been able to cost any of the think... iam go through to the trial and i think... i am angry, it must have been horrendous for the victims and all the agencies are now trying to pages the stretch pledges that you see who is to blame. that is not the have set out. we have challenged way forward. we can go through the series of events leading tojoseph labour and the conservatives why not mccann being out and in a position to commit these horrendous crimes. you? we are not going to be in you mention the victims. he refused to attend court. your understanding government in westminster. we are not doing that. inaudible we are of how that may have impacted on victims, not having him there to seeing these are the things we will
6:44 am
be negotiating for and the things we acknowledge his crimes. for me, that are putting forward in the budget is more disrespectful and i have a lwa ys is more disrespectful and i have and asking for these things, for always said that it is their right to do whatever they want. it is up fairness, for spending for the nhs to do whatever they want. it is up to the prosecution to put the case forward. but to not sit in court, so fairness, for spending for the nhs so that the nhs is at the same and to listen to what he has put levels in england and scotland. we will be asking for those things at them through and for the judge, knowing he is set in a cell in the every possible opportunity and for court, refusing to come down, is a scotland's future to be in mockery for the victims. when the scotland's future to be in scotland's hand. thank you for victims are trying to deal with joining us. their ordeals and i know this is here's susan with a look at this morning's weather. very much your area, when they are trying to deal with that, on top of that, too at a later date during the good morning once again. we're off toa good morning once again. we're off to a pretty quiet start of the trial until now, learning about weekend, light winds out there and m ista kes trial until now, learning about mistakes and hear people say he it is relatively mild but my should not have been released and goodness it will get much livelier as the weekend goes on. widespread had someone done theirjob properly he would not have been able to carry gales tomorrow and some hefty showers too. this ridge of high out those crimes, how does that pressure is what is holding things impact on people? it is not good steady as we start the weekend. temperatures are positive at the enough. in our case, the person was
6:45 am
moment as well, even though we have released that day for breach of bail had quite light winds overnight but mild and through this morning, and went on to commit further acts. sunshine to be had across england the ministry ofjustice, by giving and wales and eastern scotland. the apology, yes, have an enquiry, early brightness for northern ireland but the changes to the yes, but is that for the process to north—west of the uk come the say lessons learned, they are the afternoon, a weather front arrives into scotland and i think rainfall areas by the time we get to the late two words that infuriate. we are afternoon. temperatures not too bad, dealing with damaged human beings for the rest of their life. this is nine or ten so on the mild side. not setting up the ducks and doing that is the quite bit but here we go it right, it is about accountability through this evening and overnight with this weather front sweeping and victims have no legal rights and across the uk and the winds kicking up across the uk and the winds kicking up as it goes through and heavy rain no say. this is about a process that for a couple of hours and showers chasing in behind it on the strong time and again lets down victims and wind. the wind keeps the temperatures overnight up but the that victims voices not being wind will be a defining feature for listened to. the judiciary and sunday. no pressure to the north of criminal justice system the uk, the isobars are crowding in, listened to. the judiciary and criminaljustice system is not fit for purpose and i will champion this little system here will bring these victims and say how courageous some more organised showers later on and brave they are, to sit in the in the day. particularly around western coast, things will get dark and describe the actions of pretty choppy, the showers will get this violent offender who has the carried a good way eastwards and i audacity not to come and sit in a think perhaps even down the m4 court room. we do not know if he corridor into the midlands, across
6:46 am
northern england through the central will appearfor court room. we do not know if he will appear for sentencing. what is belt of scotland and some of them going on with the system that we could be wintry on the higher allow such a person to do that? i ground. temperatures still comparatively on the mild side. then feel sorry for people on the front the really windy bit, sunday night line because they will be into monday morning, i will dig in scapegoats. new head an agency, you the isobars across northern ireland, let that victim down, and your wales and south—west of england, we could see some damage as a result of apology, you resign from that position, because you let down the that actually and they could still be some knock—on effects in terms of people, do not give me a window disruption if you are travelling dressed apology, because i am first thing on monday. a good place concerned for the rest of their to check—in always, bbc local radio, lives, these victims. we will now they should have all of your latest local details. monday, a bit invest in this individual because of quieter, this area of low pressure pulls off towards the continent but his human rights and i‘m very sorry the isobars line up north to south but for me that is not good enough. what support will victims be getting so the isobars line up north to south so you probably know by now but that now? it is entirely when they are means, it is an arctic airfor monday. we jump about again from wet ready but you are only offered six and windy to light but chillier weeks of counselling. most victims i winds, a lot of sunshine and a few talk to pay privately. this does not showers around in the east. temperatures on monday, down in end at the court case, this is now single figures quite typically, seven or eight degrees but it will the loneliest place to feel because feel colder with the northerly everything goes away and we move breeze. then we jump around again onto something else. i am so for
6:47 am
for tuesday. low pressure pressure these victims from the young person barrel more heavy rain, more strong to the elderly person. what are they winds, wednesday, on the seesaw and getting? and that is my worry back down we go, brightest skies because we are giving the convicted lower temperatures and showers at times too so a very changeable person, he will be mollycoddled and outlook as we look through the next given everything. i am so annoyed five days, charlie and naga. susan, for these victims to be put through thank you very much! we'll be back with the headlines at 7:00. time now for click. this. i think the apologies, it is window dressing. you will be aware that politicians say they are going to put victims first periodically, and they will prioritise crime and try to get on top of criminal offences. when you hear those words, what do you think? as i used to say to them in meetings, it makes me this thursday, the general election will give more than 45 million physically sick. they are words and people their chance to decide victims do not want to be at the on the uk's future. centre, they want equaljustice and is it the brexit election? it is not taking one area from an offender‘s rights to give to the is it the nhs election? victim, it has to be on the parallel is it an election that will show and until victims have legal rights,
6:48 am
new divisions that no longer lie along party lines? they will never be. prosecutors are we'll soon know. for the state, they have defence and please toughen up! qcs. victims are put in the witness amidst all this there is the usual box and they say thank you and go mudslinging towards candidates. but with social media now in the mix, a lot of it has off. you can put in as much money transferred to platforms but if you have no quality or legal like twitter. here at click, we decided to take rights, it is not about politics, it a closer look at this outrage is investing in skilled workers and giving the victim and advocate to know someone is standing up for in the final few weeks of battle, and we sent carl miller to investigate. them. thank you. a lot of people have plans for the weekend. i'm a traitor. here‘s susan with a look at this i am a vile creature. much of it is misogynistic. morning‘s weather. i've had death threats, good morning to you and the weather i've had threats of violence to some of my people here. watchers. i am look, there have been moments good morning to you and the weather watchers. iam having images in which i have had anxiety attacks good morning to you and the weather watchers. i am having images sent in because of the level of threat. already and looking beautiful currently with the still waters being called everything from a lying dog to a cheat, behind me. light winds overnight and traitor or death threats. a quiet start to the weekend, thanks to the ridge of high pressure. out these are some of the 330,000 abusive tweets that prospective mp5 in the atlantic, things are set to
6:49 am
have been enduring in get lively by the end of the day. the run—up to the election. england and wales have a lot of fine but we wanted to really drill down into how much of this abuse weather today and sunny spells. in was happening, who was directed to, the nature of the abuse itself and how it was connected. scotland, rain in most areas aside so we teamed up with the think tank from the northern isles by mid demos to produce exclusive numbers afternoon. temperatures, mild, in double figures for many. evening and for the scale of the abuse in the run—up to this general election. overnight, rain sweeping across the this isjosh. uk. quite heavy. the winds stay he has trained an algorithm to sift through millions of tweets to identify those that are abusive strong into sunday morning, keeping up strong into sunday morning, keeping up temperatures but feeding in hefty and aimed at candidatess. showers initially to the north and west but this area of low pressure, —— candidates who were mp5 before the isobars get tighter through parliament was dissolved. sunday and the winter will get stronger and showers will be carried but the algorithm first needs to be trained by humans before it can sift further east. through the scottish through millions of tweets. central belt, northern england and sojosh is teaching soila, a click researcher to perhaps into the midlands and help with this monumental task. crucial to this is how it south—east. most frequent in the decides what is abusive versus what is justified criticism. that is where personaljudgement north—west. wintry across the highest ground and all the while the inevitably comes in.
6:50 am
what this gives us the opportunity wind continuing to strengthen. to do is to say right — widespread gales through sunday right now, in british democracy, that's an insult. the algorithm is is about 70% daytime but into monday, a squeeze accurate and only includes candidates running for re—election. but after just a few weeks, in the isobars and a more organised it revealed some startling results. around 334,000 tweets — band of rain. winds up to 75 mph and around 7% of the total received that could be enough to do some by candidates — were insulting. damage and lead to disruption. some that's ten for every stormy seas in the irish sea so if minute of the campaign, minute in, minute out. you are travelling in those areas on and a lot of the abuse received monday, worth checking travel plans depended on their background, before you head out. monday gets their gender, and their stance on brexit. quieter. the low tourists to the what's causing this insulting east. and notice the isobars, lining behaviour to arise? up east. and notice the isobars, lining well, some research suggests up from north to south so back into it is down to organised groups colder air from or disgruntled individuals. up from north to south so back into colder airfrom monday up from north to south so back into colder air from monday after double figures. 5—6— seven for most on those who feel isolated from the mainstream but now, monday. it should look pretty good thanks to social media, can with plenty of sunshine but a enter the public conversation more easily than ever before. to psy—tu rvy with plenty of sunshine but a hate is a tactic used by various topsy—turvy week ahead. try to keep types of organisations and individuals. up topsy—turvy week ahead. try to keep up with a graphic, cold air on they are unified by a desire for someone to respond to them —
6:51 am
and we have. monday, warm on tuesday. as a society, as individuals, low— pressure we have been responding and engaging monday, warm on tuesday. low—pressure pressure whirling away with this kind of hate to the north of the uk. almost one forfar too long. and so, for the first time day on and one off. tuesday wet and in this general election, we've seen mainstream political actors using trolling techniques in order to amplify their windy and mild. wednesday, showers. no two days are the same as we look at the week ahead. thank you. we are message on social media. and so the three primary ones — going to take a look at the papers the three main ones — now. were honesty, intelligence and this mike barton, former chief constable accusation of treachery. when ijoined josh, i was surprised of durham police, is here. to learn that the main party leaders you have selected a couple of weren't the biggest targets of abuse — at least as a proportion stories. this is a bad day for of all their mentions. boris johnson is right down at the bottom. ba rclays. and jeremy corbyn stories. this is a bad day for barclays. this is your worst isn't there at all. this is not a one—party nightmare. this couple here, peter issue is, is it? right. this is much deeper and veronica, they inherited just than single attacks. shy of £200,000, a share from a one candidate who received an awful lot of this was iain duncan smith. as you can see, right parent‘s death. he put one digit down the bottom. he was also sworn at a lot and if you are white, wrong and, as a result, £193,000 you are more likely to be called a traitor and sworn at than any other ethnicity. went into another bank account and
6:52 am
but of course, there are human ba rclays said we beings on the other side went into another bank account and barclays said we will get it back to you ina of the screen. barclays said we will get it back to you in a week, because he noticed so i visited iain duncan smith's straightaway. berkeley is then said constituency and he told me his way we have contacted the customer and of dealing with this is to never engage. he is refusing to give it back so we the problem is sometimes will give you £25 in compensation. with elections and things, he took it to court and, months they actually feed this a bit more because they tell everybody, actually, we all hate each other. later, £45,000 later, he gets the we don't. i don't hate labour! i have a lot of labour friends. money back and barclays bank refused to do something until the guardian but the problem with the internet contacted them and then they gave is it takes a bit of that anger and accelerate and makes it immediate and instantaneous him the £46,000 back. but what is and gratifying, like a drug. but abuse, of course, worrying is the stinker of a is notjust something that happens online. customer who knows he has £193,000 and a day after i visited his office, it was vandalised. in his bank, and refusing to give it one of the most surprising findings was that men overall tended back. barclays to receive more abusive messages in his bank, and refusing to give it back. ba rclays bank in his bank, and refusing to give it back. barclays bank did nothing about it. did he spend it? i think than women on twitter — although this does not mean that what they did receive was worse or more threatening. he spent some of it. is that not a these are broad trends. the experience of every candidate will change. for example, angela smith. crime? i would he spent some of it. is that not a crime? iwould have he spent some of it. is that not a crime? i would have thought so. you have received money you are not she is being insulted a lot entitled to and is not part of an for her honesty and being called
6:53 am
exchange. but reading this story, a traitorfour times more than the average candidate. clearly i do not have all the facts, now, this could be because she recently changed parties. so she is now with i think he has got the whole of the the liberal democrats. she also voted against brexit. money back, but it strikes me, when you have a stinker of a person this was against the majority in her former constituency. refusing to give the money back, why and she says she has faced a torrent of abuse from anti—semitism to misogyny. can it not just refusing to give the money back, why can it notjust be given back? they in order to stay sane, have finally got the amount of money i do not look at most of the abuse they should have got. it is a happy directed at me on twitter. ending. we talk about how to get the i just don't think any individual can cope with that. and you can feel the anger behind most out of workers. longer hours, the tweets, and the anger behind the use of capital shorter hours, what works best? this letters, the aggression. and i find that frightening. so it seems whether you are leaving isa shorter hours, what works best? this is a company who are saying that what they are trying to do is give your party or taking a stance on that ultimate divisive issue, brexit, it can make you many enemies things back to the staff. they are online as well. saying why not have friday afternoon next, i wanted to see off if you have had a good week? as whether the type of abuse candidates received also tended to differ a result they find their staff are based on their ethnicity. more risk taking and innovative. in what we saw here is that if you are a bme candidate, you are more likely to be my time up in durham, we
6:54 am
accused of being stupid, concentrated on making sure people basically, to be insulted felt they had control of their for your intelligence. workspace. like you, you deliver a good example of this fantastic workspace. like you, you deliver fa ntastic stuff. is david lammy, who is insulted workspace. like you, you deliver fantastic stuff. thank you very for his honesty much. i am not biased. an excellent and his intelligence, and he's also sworn at an awful lot. point. earlier in the campaign, you can continue to go down that david lammy tweeted a report he had overseen, the lammy review, into the disproportionate of bme vein. seriously. i watch minorities in the prison system. and even he, no stranger to online you can continue to go down that abuse, was taken back vein. seriously. iwatch you you can continue to go down that vein. seriously. i watch you from... you are here all day, on it. you are by the response. i was staggered at the level delivering. you are not doing this of abuse that i received. because somebody is slave driving that is an indication ofjust how you, you do it because you are toxic things have become. inspired and want to deliver a good most of the abusive tweets directed service. these bosses have hit on at me are really pushing deeply racist stereotypical tropes. that. there are lots who i think they are tropes about being stupid. ta ke that. there are lots who i think take the wrong view, a mean—spirited view of staff. i will challenge you they're tropes about being lazy. they are tropes that on this. personally, bestjob in the involve the n word. world for me. i am delighted to come so what does the research to work and do this job. it is not
6:55 am
actually tell us? the same as people who perhaps are well, there is a scale, of course, working longer hours, without as ten online insults every minute of every day of the campaign. much variety, and who are doing it these insults cut across the political divide, more because they feel they have to but they are also determined by what a candidate do to make ends meet.” say and who they are. more because they feel they have to do to make ends meet. i am agreeing with you. what i am saying is if you and for sure, it is notjust happening on twitter and notjust happening to politicians. so i think one of the big make the workplace mean—spirited questions we now have is, that you will not get the best out as politics becomes more digital with each passing day, how can we make it less angry? of people. there will be mundane jobs where it is a little bit earlier this year, tedious and would not excite our amazon web services ran get it — interests, but i am saying give a competition for children to design people responsibility in those an app to solve a problem. areas, so people responsibility in those areas, so they at least have as much the prize — bringing it to fruition. control as they can. on the last after stiff competition from various note, a story about hedgehogs. my mental health and well—being concepts, this lot triumphed with their web app to transcribe daughter and son—in—law disturbed a school lessons for the deaf hedgehogin daughter and son—in—law disturbed a hedgehog in their shared this week and hard of hearing. and they were really perturbed. they a few weeks after their win, went back the following morning and i came here to the team's school, bishop's stortford college prep, it had gone, bereft. my daughter in order to find out a little more works for the environment agency and

6:57 am
there is also the issue of children needing hearing aids re—moulded as they grow. an hour, see you then. so how do they get ajury in california has acquitted the tech entrepreneur and tesla founder, elon musk, of defaming a british caver who he called started creating the app? "pedo guy" on twitter. vernon unsworth — who helped rescue 12 boys from a flooded cave we looked through the things that we in thailand last year — had never done. we thought to ourselves, had been seeking almost £150 million in damages. "how could we had to put it together his legal team have told so it would be something that works? the bbc they‘re now considering filing for a re—trial. and not a gimmick." dave lee has been so after we found our target audience, we sent the information to amazon, who judged it and then to meet his lawyer. the competition started. the competition started. and you won. how did that feel? it felt amazing. tell me your reaction like, no—one could believe it. to the jury‘s verdict. when ready, the app will be open source, so it will be available obviously disappointed with the verdict. to other schools. it was i think a sub but the process so far — much like creating any tech — optimal verdict. has come with its challenges. what we‘ve had, as we have now it is just a bit disappointing that it is not coming up had the opportunities perfect first time. as you do in california, there is an unrealistic standard, but it is a bit disappointing to have some of the jurors interviewed, we now understand why to know that there is a lot the verdict was the way more work to be done. it was and it appears this is part of a bigger picture. that thejurors, quite astonishingly, thought that the direction we push kids in, vernon unsworth was not identified
6:58 am
by elon musk in his tweets. in an ever—changing world. there is a big misnomer in artificial intelligence. everybody talks about al, of course, there are millions but they don't explain to the youngsters of people who, around the world, what it actually means. who knew he was referring ai is based on data — to vernon unsworth, who will go that is all that is. it's data that has been built up. slack—jawed and astonished at that particular allegation. the entire population of the uk, and they can create things from data. that is a skill set the entire population of thailand and many other places besides. that they can use in any walk after court, mr unsworth said of life going forward. he is having to put his life back together, get things back on track. and that's it from the shortcut but it sounds like you are not quite of click for this week. satisfied this is over the full length version is up yet, so where are we? on iplayer, where you can watch it right now. i think that, as a lawyer, if you ever need to get in touch i am pained when i see an injustice with us, don't forget we live and i think i saw an injustice on social media — on instagram, facebook, youtube and twitter at @bbcclick. thanks for watching, and we will see you soon. here in los angeles. i think one of the problems about this is that vernon is a tough, heroic kind of guy. he has raced in the isle of man tt.
6:59 am
he goes where no other person will go in caves, not even other cave rescuers will go. he is a very brave man. he will stick his chin out, bite his stiff, british upper lip, and he will move on. but it does not mean it is not painful and it doesn‘t hurt. of course, it is going to hurt. but, of course, there is the possibility, there is the light at the end of the tunnel that, actually, this jury verdict is unsafe and unsound and should be overturned, because we all know, a moron in a hurry knows, that those tweets were about to vernon unsworth and they were false. stay with us, headlines coming up.

7:02 am
joshua and ansy ruinnr, who many wrote off —— andy ruinnr. he is outside in mccann's car, sits a woman too terrified to attempt to escape. he has already assaulted her american, with mexican heritage. and after kidnapping her, there is anthonyjoshua. anthony after she left this club. a few days later, he abducts another joshuais woman near this tube station there is anthonyjoshua. anthony joshua is much lighter, has never in london, then not long been that light for five years. in after a third woman. new york in june, terrible in itself but instead been that light for five years. in new york injune, he was beaten for the first time. of being free to terrorise them, mccann should have been behind bars. in 2008, he was jailed for an aggravated burglary at the home of an 85—year—old man. stunned by the rank outsider andy ruinunior at new york‘s it 2017, he was freed on license. madison square garden. tonight, just outside riyadh in saudi arabia, the same year he was arrested for new offences, a chance of revenge, and should have been recalled redemption and more importantly winning back his three world titles. to prison but was not. a year later he was sentenced ade adedoyin is there for us. for his new crimes and should have gone before the parole board before franklyjoshua frankly joshua this franklyjoshua this is about... it he was considered safe to be freed, instead at the start of this year will maybe not end his career but he was mistakenly let out and free will maybe not end his career but will put him in a difficult position. andy ruiz to go on to attack 11 will put him in a difficult position. andy ruinnr is not a women and children. one—hit wonder. what was interesting yesterday he was convicted of 37 offences, including kidnap and rape.
7:03 am
now richard burgon, labour's shadowjustice secretary, yesterday as the size of andy ruiz has called for an investigation jnr. we knew anthonyjoshua would be saying the public must have full confidence in under 17 stone, he told us in the the justice system. build—up he concentrated more on his he wants an independent review boxing skills, his movements, but into what labour calls "shocking failures" andy ruiz boxing skills, his movements, but andy ruinnr coming in at a and deep government cuts. the probation service whopping 19 stone £3. his trainer has apologised, with one officer being demoted and another sacked, but that is little comfort to mccann's victims. said he wanted him to come in john mcmanus, bbc news. lighter this time round, but he comes in over a lighter this time round, but he comes in over a stone lighter this time round, but he comes in over a stone heavier. has he enjoyed the trappings of being the heavyweight champion a little we'll discuss this too much? on social media he has with the general secretary of the probation union lots of footage of his new house, in just a few minute's. new cars, but is he in danger borisjohnson and jeremy corbyn have potentially of leaving the heavyweight title on the dinner gone head to head in a tv debate for the final time before table? if the fight goes early, we the general election next week. they put forward competing visions on brexit, favour him, bigger, stronger, but if it goes into the later rounds, it the nhs, and the economy, and attacked each other‘s plans, but neither scored a knockout blow. would favour anthonyjoshua. our political correspondent, nick eardley, was there. it goes into the later rounds, it would favour anthony joshua. we saw andy ruiz would favour anthony joshua. we saw andy ruinnr in his sombrero, that with just a few days that put the fear in joshua as until the country goes to the polls, one of the last big chances andy ruinnr in his sombrero, that that put the fear injoshua as they went head—to—head?
7:04 am
to persuade voters. how would we be better off that put the fear injoshua as they went head-to-head? describe it for from the brexit deal or a future us, we can see it. but there we go. labout deal compared to what we already have as a member of the eu? can you guarantee that it but as andy ruiz will happen next year? us, we can see it. but there we go. but as andy ruinnr, very proud of on brexit, they attacked each other. his mexican heritage. deontay what i have not heard from the leader of the labour party, this deal that he thinks he can get wilder, the wbc champion, look at in three months' time, that. what is that? it is like a who is going to negotiate it? hannibal lecter thing going on. who is going to secure this deal? the news came out of what's metal studs on it. if that is happening with northern ireland... for people who did not hear the news, what are you claiming the document show? they show quite clearly sinister, the next picture is not that there are going to be charges, quite the same. tyson fury looks there are going to be customs checks, like he has got it from a pound there are going to be restrictions on trade between britain and northern ireland. shop. if i was a pound shop owner i what the document also says is that would be upset with you for northern ireland is part of the customs territory of the uk. insulting them, it is like a floppy all his political life he has campaigned to break up that union and actually supported for four decades the ira in their campaign batman. violently to destroy it. i‘m infavourof batman. i‘m in favour of dressing up for the how about the prime minister showing a degree of honesty way in —— weigh in. and so it is a question
7:05 am
of openness on all of this. he says you have supported people who are opposed to the union your whole life, you don't even believe...? just the five premier league what i have done is always wanted to see a peace process in northern ireland matches this afternoon, and that is exactly what we have got and thank you to the labour government that negotiated it. labour wants voters to think the big one today is at the etihad, about a lot more than brexit next week though. the manchester derby, it costs a lot to train as a nurse dan‘s here with us. but the starting salary are low. it costs a lot to train as a nurse i have come prepared. there is only but the starting salaries are low. one day that you need to wear a how would you deal with the shortage christmas jumper. now, of nurses and ensure the nhs one day that you need to wear a christmasjumper. now, you only get can retain them? one month to wear them, you have to mr corbyn again questioned claims easeitin made by the conservatives. one month to wear them, you have to announced there was going to be 40 new hospitals. a week later that became 20. a bit later on, it became six new hospitals. ease it in gently. he seems to have a problem with the figures about hospital building in britain. we have a very clear agenda whichis to upgrade 20 hospitals, to build 40 new ones. it is perfectly true that the cash allocation for the whole hospital built is for six initially but we are putting in

7:07 am
talking about getting the next a jury in california has acquitted the tech entrepreneur general —— next generation involved and tesla founder, elon musk, of defaming a british caver who he called "pedo guy" on twitter. in the general election. we also have lots of managerial moves this vernon unsworth, who helped rescue 12 boys week. there have been four in a and their football coach from a flooded cave in thailand last fortnights act. we have the new boss year, had been seeking almost at watford, nigel pearson, everton £150 million in damages. dave lee has more. have sacked marco silver, and we elon musk entered court on friday have sacked marco silver, and we for the fourth and now final day have aston villa, looking back at of this trial. epic total memory lane, we have ryan what has surely been the most intense, not to mention expensive examination ever of a single tweet. fredericks, and a lovely piece on how many of you? brentford. brentford by players that tweet, sent in july 2018, came in the midst of the miraculous using the moneyball system.” rescue of 12 thai boys brentford. brentford by players using the moneyball system. i don't know what that is. you buy the and their football coach from a flooded cave. players based on analytics. you vernon unsworth, a british man who lived nearby, study the numbers and say they would was instrumental in advising that effort. be the highest —— they may not be elon musk also traveled the highest—rated player but look at to the region, their numbers. there is a film with a specially—designed mini submarine. starring brad pitt in america. is it
7:08 am
in a tv interview mr unsworth called it a "pr stunt", calling mr musk to snap back, using the phrase "pedo guy". like rollerball? do you know that he later deleted the tweet film? it is nothing like that. have but vernon unsworth sued him for defamation, saying he had you seen film? it is nothing like that. have you seen it? i have not seen it! wrongly been accused of paedophilia. elon musk was describing court as a billionaire bully, bre ntford you seen it? i have not seen it! a man who dropped a nuclear bomb brentford have bought £10 million worth of players over the years and sold them for ten times that, so they know what they‘re doing. we are into the life of vernon unsworth. on at midday and i will explain it then, and we have a packed programme but the jury saw it differentl;y, for you. why haven't you introduced they said the tweet was an insult but not an accusation, a view which could set a precedent rollerball on football focus?m when it comes to libel cases involving social media. for you. why haven't you introduced rollerball on football focus? it has nothing to do with rollerball! this verdict sends a signal, and one signal only, that you can make any accusation you want to, raheem sterling has been telling as vile as it may be, people to vote. as damaging at it may be, as untrue as it may be, the election is fast approaching — and someone can get away with it. and political parties have just five the only thing i'm going to say is, days to win votes. the jury got this right, and we don't have any further in efforts to woo the electorate, comment at this time. yesterday evening, borisjohnson reporter: how is mr musk? went head to head with labour leader
7:09 am
jeremy corbyn in a live tv debate. everyone is well. we can get the reaction of conservative nicky morgan now. she joins us from westminster. thank you. do you think borisjohnson took this seriously? yes, of course, he takes ultimately mr unsworth's lawyers every debate seriously. it was an were unable to prove that his life had been sufficiently negatively impacted. important occasion in this election indeed in the days after the tweet, isa important occasion in this election is a very serious moment for the the defence argued mr unsworth was the focus of celebration country, and he outlined the and praise, not suspicion. critical choice facing the country it means that while ill—judged next thursday, which is do we carry on with a paralysed parliament, not tweets may have cost mr musk making a decision on the biggest millions of dollars in the past, issue of the day, or do we get a that was not to be the case this majority conservative government thatis majority conservative government that is able to get brexit done, but time. i accept the jury verdict, take it on the chin, also to move forward. he is keen to and move on. dave lee, bbc news. emphasise that brexit needs to be done then we need to move forward, it's feared a giant bushfire and he talks about and leasing the that's burning out of control near sydney may take uk's and he talks about and leasing the uk‘s potential. weeks to put out. and he talks about and leasing the uk's potential. let's have a look at in recent days several borisjohnson uk's potential. let's have a look at boris johnson taking this uk's potential. let's have a look at fires have combined to form borisjohnson taking this seriously. what emergency services are calling what punishment do you think is a ‘mega blaze' on a belt of land about an hour's drive north important for politicians who lie of the city. our correspondent phil mercer during election campaigns? they joins us from sydney now. should be made to go on their knees, good morning to you. bring us up down through the chamber of the house of commons, scourging today because this has become a real
7:10 am
themselves with copies of their offending documents which claim to concern? this mega fire burning to prove one thing but to prove the north—west of sydney has a front something quite different. of about 40 miles. it is bigger in nicky morgan. it was the end of size than the sydney metropolitan debate, perhaps a moment to lift the area and officials say that some of these fires burning in eastern australia are so big and so intense atmosphere in the room, and that is that they cannot put them out. there one of the things he is able to do. there were serious issues that had been debated on brexit, security, is simply not enough resources or water bombing aircraft or boots on the nhs, taxation, and there was an the ground, volunteer firefighters opportunity lifted. but what is a put them out and they say only more serious issue than trusting the person who would be our prime flooding rain will do that but the minister? why is that an appropriate forecast for the australian summer is from a hot and dry weather so moment to make a joke? minister? why is that an appropriate moment to make ajoke? well, i today, here in new south wales, think, as i say, it was the end of conditions have massively eased for an hour—long debate, people need to fire crews what many people in this watch the whole debate, and the biggest breach of trust has been pa rt fire crews what many people in this part of the world are fearing is parliament not delivering on the that this is simply a lyle and that vote of 2016 when people voted to leave the eu, that is why we are on tuesday, for example, very hot having this election and that is the critical issue facing the country
7:11 am
conditions with strong winds are and we will have to see if we can get it resolved by having a majority forecast. the danger may have conservative government next subsided today but in the next few thursday. the trust issue is important because during the debate, days and for the whole of the australian summer, there is a fear and he talked about the issues, for that bushfire crisis will continue and may even get worse. example the argument over nursing numbers which was re—addressed again because there was confusion over those numbers. the argument over how they've been a distinctive part of the landscape in shropshire many hospitals will be built, and for half a century but they disappeared in just seconds. consistently through the campaign there have been fudges over numbers four huge cooling towers at a power station in ironbridge were demolished in simultaneous and dishes that either require later controlled explosions. hundreds gathered to see it happen. clarification or a complete change. that is where trust is so important and it means when someone asks a the station stopped generating question like that, all of the electricity four years ago and the land will be used for 1,000 issues mentioned become embroiled in theissue issues mentioned become embroiled in the issue of trust. it is inevitable new homes and a school. ina campaign i remember there was a time in the the issue of trust. it is inevitable in a campaign that a party or early 905 when we used to see minister, prime minister, will put forward a pledge and have to explain pictures like that all the time. early 905 when we used to see pictures like that all the timem is always dramatic. we have the spot it, and the prime minister was clear when he was asked about the nurses and hospitals, he did not wait to be and whether but let's first return asked, he said let me unpick that
7:12 am
because i know people have been talking about these issues. if we are talking about trust and numbers, to our main story. senior politicians are calling for an independent review look at whatjohn mcdonnell said the into the "shocking failures" surrounding the case other day, a labourer party saving ofjoseph mccann. mccann was released from prison earlier this year —— labour party saving family 7000 after an error by the probation service and went on to carry out pounds a year, and that was a string of sex attacks on women and children. nonsense. we have had the debates, his victims include a 71—year—old borisjohnson, the woman and an 11—year—old boy. we can speak now to ian lawrence, general secretary of nonsense. we have had the debates, boris johnson, the first leader to doi the probation union. boris johnson, the first leader to do i had to be —— to doa a lot of people hearing this story are horrified that this man was head—to—head debate. afraid. what insight can you give us about how that was allowed to do i had to be —— to doa head-to-head debate. an envoy happen? ok, i think we have some sound problems. can you hear us in the studio? i will tell you what we in the —— diplomat has resigned, do, we will come back to that in a moment and get the sound sorted. alexander hall says she cannot peddle half—truths on behalf of a
7:13 am
unsurprisingly, this is the lead government that i do not trust. what are people supposed to make of that? i‘m sorry, i don‘t think any story in the headlines. joseph government wants to lose a talented mccann was found guilty of 37 counts diplomat, member of the foreign after attacking 11 people. only office, it is an importantjob and i think she was responsible for brexit court after a fortnight long rampage in washington and that is a very across the uk and people are talking important relationship for the uk. about the sentences that for earlier she has not specified, as far as i‘m aware, what she is referring to. but crime should have meant he was recalled to prison. the daily mail brexit has been an enormous challenge over the last 3.5 years, a concentrating on the debate last source challenge over the last 3.5 years, a night. we are picking up with all source of challenge over the last 3.5 years, a source of enormous challenge over the last 3.5 years, a source of enormous frustration, which is why we are having this election because parliament has the political participants morning become paralysed and not being able to get some reaction. tv channels to deliver on what people voted for, and that was a stark difference last accused of hysterical election bias. night between the two leaders. boris anyone on social media would johnson got a deal on the table, a deal that people said could not be understand broadcasters have been done. it is on the table, all accused of letting a sense of conservative candidates have signed up conservative candidates have signed entitlement to drive hysterical rows up to get this deal approved by the with politicians. this picture, end of january. jeremy corbyn saying he would adopt a neutral position
7:14 am
that he would not advocate for it, dodging —— dolce gabbana just and we cannot carry on like this is and we cannot carry on like this is a country. one of the things i‘m seeing today is that the uk and ireland will launch a bid to host the world cup in 2030 and invest beautiful. over £500 million in grassroots hats have a rethink, it is quieter football facilities. that is there at the moment. but as the important for the country. looking weekend goes on, the wind will strengthen and sunday night into at some significant conservative monday it looks particularly stormy figures, such as sirjohn major, and tomorrow for many of us there will be heavy showers skittering former prime minister, urging people across the uk as well. quiet at the to vote for independence instead of moment as we have this little ridge tory candidates. what does that say of high pressure but for scotland to you? i think again what it shows today, this weather front is going today, this weather front is going as the challenges of the last three to be moving into the story will and a half years, and i think the change. largely dry as we speak, prime minister addressed this last some showers to the north and west night, and we all have great respect easing across wales and northern for our former night, and we all have great respect for ourformer party night, and we all have great respect for our former party leaderjohn major. i do not thinkjeremy corbyn england through the morning. the cloud builds for the afternoon. the could even bring himself to utter best of the sunshine through the the words tony blair. we all have first part of the day and into the afternoon to the south and east. great respect forjohn major, and northern ireland, quite a lot of things we all agree on as
7:15 am
rain after dark, ran into all areas conservatives, but on this particular issue around brexit there of scotla nd rain after dark, ran into all areas of scotland during the afternoon. isa particular issue around brexit there the wind starts to lift later in the is a big difference of opinion between boris johnson, day through the evening and is a big difference of opinion between borisjohnson, the position of the current conservative party, overnight, quite squally winds as a band of rain slides across the uk. commitments —— conservative party for all areas, a couple of hours of commitments —— conservative party commitments and john major, and he is perfectly entitled to give his heavy rain and the front, things opinion, and he said if he lived in clear behind it, the wind keeps temperatures up but showers come those constituency that is who he into the north and west. here is the would vote for. our lead story today low pressure responsible for the strong winds for sunday with lots of is about the failings in the parole isobars packing in and the more of those you see, the stronger wind, basically. through sunday it will service of the release ofjoseph continue to strengthen and as it does, pushing the showers further mccann. we spoke to the probation east. some will get a good way into the midlands, along the m4 corridor service union this morning who said towards oxfordshire and northern the pressure is on the system are england into scotland through the central belt and some could turn pa rt the pressure is on the system are part of the problem, where terrible wintry. cooler to the north of the decisions are made. we have uk tomorrow. in the south, still convicted in our manifesto to have a royal commission that we look on the comparatively mild but the wind, the whole of the criminaljustice really noticeable thing. not so system, and this is obviously not an chilly because it is atlantic but could well prove to be damaging is area in my brief. the secretary of state forjustice will do a it really pea ks could well prove to be damaging is it really peaks sunday into monday. fantastic job looking at state forjustice will do a fantasticjob looking at this but my gusts up to 70 miles an hour around

understanding is that there is a the irish seacoast. some disruption debate to be had about what perhaps from the strong winds, maybe happened, whether it was an individual set of mistakes or the some damage even for anyone i think strength of the system. we have seen travelling monday morning, it is worth keeping up to date and checking in with the bbc local this awful, awful case, and in the context of the london bridge attacks radio. monday things become a little as well, where the terrorist had bit more quiet once again but the been released early. so it is isobars light up north to south so clearly a n been released early. so it is clearly an issue we need to look at yes, the rain is gone and the cloud to make sure the whole criminal has gone for many of us and there is justice system is working some time but it will actually feel appropriately. nicky morgan, thank colder. some showers around the middle east first thing and monday's you. highs, six or seven typically doing here‘s susan with a look it but with the wind, it will feel at this morning‘s weather. chillier so i will contrast in the way that things look and feel between sunday and monday. and for six o‘clock this morning there were waves crashing in the photo, but tuesday, we do it again. another area of low pressure barrelling in so area of low pressure barrelling in this looks much nicer. so upgrade those temperatures but down comes the rain and the wind the first picture was the forecast of the weekend ahead because the will be particularly strong again weather watchers were not up and and wednesday, everything backs off, about, but they are now, and this it is much more quiet but it will lovely image comes in from barnes. feel chillier and sunny spells and you can see the contrast, it is a some scattered showers. basically, no two days the same as we look into good deal calmer, that‘s because the start of the weekend is pretty the week ahead. back to you quiet, with temperatures above
7:17 am
the week ahead. back to no two days the same as we look into freezing at the moment, relatively the week ahead. back to you two. susan, thank you. it is 16 minutes mild and a lot of dry weather past seven. around. thanks to this ridge of high with sophisticated smartphones and increasingly affordable cameras around, everyone fancies themselves pressure. for the north west we have as an amateur photographer from time to time. but what makes a picture low pressure, coming into play is that weekend goes on. showers in the stand out from the rest? north and west of england and where i take remarkably bad pictures no matter what. why? do you have a is today, northern ireland with theory about that? is it a increasing cloud, rain after dark, but a wet afternoon across scotland rhetorical question? no, i will is the first weather front moves on. a nswer rhetorical question? no, i will answer it. you need a little bit of then we get a pretty lively weather patience and a little bit of thought. is that what it is? simple front moving in across the uk as that! about what you are taking a overnight, bringing squally winds and heavy rain to all areas. the picture of and you will take a good wind remains stronger overnight into picture. —— think about. sunday, keeping things mild, feeding the shortlist has been announced for next year's and lots of showers. that is because british photography awards and director hugo donnithorne—tait says the entries are "breathtaking". he joins us now for our low is with us, and we will see a look at some of them. good morning to you. is that what more organised showers marching in you need? good morning to you. is that what through sunday. here is the picture you need ? a good morning to you. is that what you need? a bit of patience and what was the other thing? think. i think for sunday. a lot of sunshine first thing for england and we are showers steady hands help a bit as well. the already on to scotland and northern shortlist has been, like i said,
7:18 am
ireland, moving east and the wind, breathtaking, but the variety more than anything because we added four affecting parts of northern england more categories to try to represent perhaps as far east as the midlands and the south—east of england at the wider sector and it has been times. it will feel somewhat cooler lovely to sort through all of the entries. how do you pick? you have a already on sunday, with temperatures domestic pets category! we had a lot still in double figures to the of demand... you will upset a lot of south. then wind picking up sunday pet owners by not choosing... muffins and mittens. and scnickies. evening into monday morning, particularly around irish sea coasts. wind up to 75 mph in some spots, and that could be enough to what i really like is the variety, do some damage and cause disruption even in the category, because there first thing on monday, particularly are so many even in the category, because there are so many kinds of professional geographers but we welcome work from northern ireland, wales and the amateurs as well so there is really south—west of england. it is worth something for everybody within the competition. when you are judging checking in before your travel plans these things and i appreciate you do on monday. the low pressure moves not want to talk too much closely about individual pictures, of them eastwards, leaving us with an are visually stunning and theyjust orderly air stream, so a lighter look like... some of them have a lot wind, but a chillier direction. for of character in them and i mean, is many, a lot of sunshine, so will look very different on monday but ita of character in them and i mean, is it a blend of those things, a bit of will also feel very different, a story but also... that is the thing, the judging is crisper cool feel to proceedings. a story but also... that is the thing, thejudging is independent because we cannot play kingmaker, as for the rest of the week ahead, we
7:19 am
much as we would love to, but judges are all over the place. try keeping up are all over the place. try keeping up with this. tuesday, and weather look for so many different things within pictures, some look for technical accuracy, focus points in fields and other people look for the system, wednesday‘s clearer again, thursday we are back on to a milder ivy fields and other people look for the joy or the emotion that a picture gives you. what do you look at? i footing. from day to day through the like pretty colours. do you know weekend, things will shift dramatically. a little bit of everything coming our way. strong what, simple answers are the best. pretty colours are a lovely thing. wind at times, heavy rain, and there anyone can enter? yes, it is open to could be something wintry across higher ground through the week all british —based photographers of ahead. any nationality and also brits all over the world we get some amazing scenes from far—flung places. over the world we get some amazing the bbc christmas tree is yet to scenes from far-flung places. you find, i mean, we started talking about how smartphones are giving everyone, particularly in the age of arrive, but not sure when. self is and whatever and social media, do you find that the photos christmas is traditionally a time for giving — and this year, there‘s a new way that are coming through, the ones to spread joy popping up in offices taken on traditional cameras, are and shopping centres from older people or younger people are interested ? from older people or younger people are interested? we are noticing more around the world. people entering with smartphones and it is becoming increasingly
7:20 am
difficult to tell the difference and to even argue there is a technical "giving trees" are decorated with tags bearing a child 5 age, difference because lower and bigger gender and something cameras are about the same, i mean, they are interested in. people are encouraged to take without certain controls, as smartphones now, but it also means a tag and buy a gift. that far more people actually have the presents are then delivered to local refuges or food banks, cameras on their hands a lot so we and given to parents. are seeing situations where no—one we‘re joined now by victoria nichol from the merseyway shopping centre would have been able to record in stockport, and from our london before and now it is empowering newsroom by gordon moulds them. photographers can. we will from the charity, kids out. victoria, talk us through this. if have a look now, maybe you can talk someone sees victoria, talk us through this. if someone sees the tree and they take us through, this is last year's one of the labels off, what happens winner. tell us about this. this was next? what do i see and what mike eggert and's picture, he won happens? the labels are bespoke, so the sports category. —— eggerton. we have reached out to the local community, to people in need, they provided us with lists of the what is that? i think it was a loser children who perhaps won‘t get anything this year. on that we will at the winter olympics and it is find the child‘s age, name and what technically very interesting because, like i said earlier with they would really like for steady hands, in order to record that you need to be able to pan with christmas. we have designed these tags, which go on the tree. so, a the sports man, really quite customer at the shopping centre accurately. and obviously there is a would get to pick a tag of the tree high hit and miss ratio for this that it high hit and miss ratio for this and decide what they will go and buy thatitis high hit and miss ratio for this that it is an amazing picture, the
7:21 am
for the child. and then they come to lions, the selective focus, it is you? we have different drop-off amazing. it almost looks like it to be an advertisement for the sport, points, they bring the gift with the it is perfectly composed in that tag, and that gets distributed back out into the community back to the sense. and kind of immediately says what it is. and it also captures the pa rent out into the community back to the parent for christmas. what a lovely speed of everything that is there. thought. how have people reacted to and to you, as a judge, you take photographs yourself?” it? we have been really overwhelmed and to you, as a judge, you take photographs yourself? i am a wildlife photographer but i am not by the generosity of people in pa rt of wildlife photographer but i am not part of the judging panel. ijust do the add man's stuff. wildlife stockport and merseyway. we have photography is a particular, i mean, heard of pa rents recently we have been talking about stockport and merseyway. we have heard of parents bringing their tv wildlife documentaries on the bbc children to pick something off the and it is a gift, isn't it? wildlife tree, so they understand the message of giving at christmas, which is really nice. gordon, you have been photography? you need patients. if doing something similar to this for you do not mind being eaten by the last few years. yes, the last five years, exactly the same, but we mosquitoes. —— patience. deal with children who have escaped you do not mind being eaten by mosquitoes. -- patience. good to see you here this morning. thank you very much. it is now 21 minutes past serious domestic violence. how do seven. we will have the sport in you manage the numbers, because i about ten minutes.

just eight days on from last think the campaign in 2018 saw more friday's fatal knife attack on london bridge, local residents and business owners are trying than 40,000 toys and £15,000 to re—establish a sense of normality. donated? that's right, and this year on what is usually the busiest it has even gone crazy. when we weekend of the year for shoppers in the area, victoria hollins has been to find out how first started, it was very easy, it people are feeling. was all done by hand, we went out to all the children, find out what they as we remember a week ago at this want, now what we do is give wish hour those who were caught up in the lists to the refugees who register attack on london bridge. a minutes and give toys they want. we have silence of the aims of london's most recent atrocity, southwark cathedral has witnessed two attacks in less than three years. the wound has been volunteering is —— volunteers reopened and memories have been phoning around to get the wish lists stirred again of 2.5 years ago when and we provide the toys to them. we we had the first attack in the area. then provide toys after christmas, soi we had the first attack in the area. so i think people are feeling on it is more important for us after edge, people are not sleeping, and christmas because refugees seem to we are trying to give some care for those people. a book of condolence get filled up then, as opposed to before. victoria, in a way these are pays tribute inside the cathedral to those killed and injured in the christmas lists. is there a attack. two died, jack marron and recurring theme? we have been saskia jones, and three others were
7:23 am
seriously injured and they have now overwhelmed that it has not been big been released from hospital, floral things, just little things. books, tributes still are a reminder here of what happened but much here colouring in, one of the biggest things we have been asked for is appears unchanged ——jack merritt. from the traffic to the crowd, warm fluffy pyjamas. the customers london bridge feels very much to have got back to normal. the traders coming into merseyway, have notjust over at borough market is preparing for one of the busiest weekends of bought the pyjamas, they have also the year. but everyone you speak to put on slippers or a dressing gown. just wants to look to the weeks i have been overwhelmed and notjust ahead. the area around borough bringing one thing, they have put additional things, for example a market was evacuated last week for a far shorter time than following the football and a football pump, so attack in 2017. but this is a they are thinking for the child, for they are thinking for the child, for crucial time for traders. people who the future, and then we started to work and live here are confident deliver the gifts and go out into the community, and once again an they will recover. from 2017, having overwhelming response of parents getting these gifts and being seen they will recover. from 2017, having seen that and having gone through the inquest, the community has become quite resilient and we have overwhelmed, in tears, just relieved a lwa ys become quite resilient and we have always been a community that is they have gifts at christmas. do you united, regardless of the situation, ever get to see the gifts going to you know, in the good times as well as the bad times. last week was the children? no, but maybe i will. terrible but, again, we bounced back these people are quite private as and last but the traders were out in well, but maybe i will get to see
7:24 am
force at seven o'clock in the that, that would be really nice. morning setting up, piling vessels with a cheese and meets high and the customers came out support. after pa rt that, that would be really nice. part of the joy is precisely that, it is not that you‘re getting to hand the present to the child, in a the man took shelter in his basement way the anonymity is one of the after the attack, he does not want the area defined by what has things that makes it special because people are not doing it for the happened. i love london bridge but the world is kind of like come gratification, just as a lovely together and i was saying on the thing to do. another thing that following days was one of the really surprised me was amount of busiest day of the year, people came people who said i would like to wrap down and it was so nice to see so the gift myself, so you know that many old faces, yeah. people here still have a lot of questions a nswered still have a lot of questions answered but while the investigation thatis continues, they will draw on recent the gift myself, so you know that that is quite special. gordon, this isa that is quite special. gordon, this is a good message today, the experience to help the area recover. kindness of strangers in the gift of victoria hollins, bbc news. giving. it is a very good message. returning to the main story, senior politicians are calling for an independent review to the shocking and we give the toys to the mother failure surrounding the case of joseph mccann. he was released from for self esteem and the women's prison earlier this year after an refuge, so the gift is for her to error by the probation service and give to the child. on the generosity went on to carry out a string of sex we have had from companies and attacks on women and children and his victims included 71—year—old people this year has been
7:25 am
woman and an 11—year—old boy. let's staggering, and has allowed us to speak now to ian lawrence, general open up to safe houses and other secretary the probation union. i wonder if i could first ask you the areas where children who have horror that many people will be escaped domestic violence are now feeling that this man was allowed to living. gordon, thank you so much for joining living. gordon, thank you so much forjoining us, from kids out be free. yes, good morning. i do charity. and thank you, victoria, you‘re doing good things. charity. and thank you, victoria, you're doing good things. there are still ten days to the campaign, understand that and the evidence that has come out during the trial succumbing to mersey way and take a suggest he shouldn't have been allowed out of prison in the first tag from the tree. place. it is a question that needs just eight days on from last to be answered there. i will not friday‘s fatal knife dispute any of the official state m e nts dispute any of the official statements about what happened and i attack on london bridge — local residents and business owners are trying to re—establish can understand the pain and horror a sense of normality. on what is usually the busiest weekend of the year for shoppers of what has gone on. it is worth in the area, victoria hollins has saying however there are hundreds been to find out how and thousands of offenders, we people are feeling. prefer and thousands of offenders, we p refer to and thousands of offenders, we prefer to call them clients, per week to come out of the prison as we remember a week ago at this system and go through probation and hour those who were caught come out of the other side and do up in the attack on london bridge. not want to commit these types of a minute‘s silence for the victims of london‘s most recent atrocity. crimes. so i understand, however, southwark cathedral has that the high profile of something witnessed two attacks in less than three years. like this will get. so when we look
7:26 am
the wound has been reopened through some of the detail on this, and memories have been stirred again we know that because mccann had been of 2.5 years ago when we had on license from prison when he was the first attack in the area. arrested, he should have been so i think people are feeling recalled to jail, a process that would have ensured the parole board on edge, people are not sleeping, was informed by the probation and we‘re trying to give some care service about his case. it did not happen. so can you come with your for those people. knowledge of the system, just a book of condolence pays tributes explain how that error could occur. inside the cathedral to those killed and injured in the attack. two victims died — well firstly, mccann would have been jack merritt and saskia jones — and three others were seriously injured. they‘ve all now been ona released from hospital. well firstly, mccann would have been on a license, he would have been floral tributes still a reminder supervised and unless he broke those here of what happened, but much here appears unchanged. conditions of the licence, and there would have been no reason to recall him so clearly he must‘ve because he from the traffic to the crowds, absconded from his home base to the london bridge feels very much to have got back to normal. north of the country and at that stage, as all the official the traders over at borough market state m e nts stage, as all the official statements have said, he should have are preparing for one of the busiest weekends of the year. been recalled and was not. i can but everyone you speak to just wants only suggest that if the stakes had been found that that could well have to look to the weeks ahead. been found that that could well have the area around borough market been bound to the kind of pressures was evacuated last week that were prevalent in the office at for a far shorter time the time and the supervising office than following the attack in 2017. andi the time and the supervising office and i think you have heard from the but this is a crucial
7:27 am
time for traders. reports that these cases were taken out against staff and the amount of people who work and live caseload that many people were here are confident they‘ll recover. carrying, staff shortages across the from 2017, and having seen that whole division are documented in and having gone through the inquest, the community has become quite independent hmi probation reports resilient and we have always been suggested a deep line issues within a community that‘s united, regardless of the situation, you know, in the good times the criminal justice suggested a deep line issues within the criminaljustice system and i as well as the bad times. absolutely support the calls for an last week was terrible but, enquiry into what went wrong. the again, we bounced back. calls for the enquiry of course have last saturday, the traders were out in force at seven o'clock already happened but people will be in the morning setting up, deeply concerned that given the piling the stalls and the cheese and meats high. scale of his crimes and the sequence customers came out in support. of events that led to him being abdul took shelter in his coffee shop basement during the attack. free, they will be very worried that he doesn‘t want the area defined by what‘s happened. this could be happening in other i love london bridge, cases too. i understand that but as but then, we always kind of like come together. isaid and then, as i was saying, cases too. i understand that but as i said earlier, there are thousands on the following days one of clients who come through the of our busiest day of the year. system and do not want to commit people came down. it was so nice to see these types of crimes. —— do not go so many old faces, yeah. people here still have a lot of questions they want answered but while the investigation on. a lot of positive work is done continues, they‘ll draw on recent experience to help the area recover. by probation staff in managing victoria hollins, bbc news.
7:28 am
offenders and making sure that our communities are kept as safe as possible and did making recalls and they are needed and i can tell you that the leadership is now looking just coming up to nine o‘clock. at the recall process in the round just coming up to nine o'clock. we will be back shortly with the and we will work on that because i headlines. wa nt and we will work on that because i want my staff, sorry, my members, to be protected properly while carrying out their work. it is a highly skilled profession and a lot of pressure on individuals and a lot of room for error as we have seen, so i wa nt room for error as we have seen, so i want standards to improve and if this can come about by means of an enquiry, fine. there has been a call for a public enquiry into the whole of the probation parts a lot that took place five years ago that has had a deleterious impact on our members morale and staff shortages and the like and we think a deep rooted review into how the criminal good morning welcome justice system as a whole is not to breakfast with naga munchetty and charlie stayt. our headlines. joining up properly. hearing what calls for an independent review after a serial rapist you are saying, it is almost like is found guilty of kidnapping and multiple rapes after being released from prison by mistake. there is a sense of resignation in
7:29 am
your voice, as in this was something that was inevitable. no, no. it is angry exchanges, but no knock—out blow as borisjohnson and jeremy corbyn an early hour in the morning. it is square up for the last time before the general election. not inevitable. but let's be clear, the billionaire businessman elon musk is cleared of defaming a british cave explorer serious offences have happened, they after calling him "pedo do happen and they will happen and guy" on social media. you can never 100% guarantee that firefighters in sydney say thatis, you can never 100% guarantee that that is, they are not going to occur a "mega—fire" burning out of control poses a major threat again and we can only do, our members can only do their best to to the city. manage those conditions, to work redemption and revenge in riyadh. can anthonyjoshua win with the multiagency public back his world titles? protection arrangements, to try and ensure that communities are safeguarded as best as possible. and he won‘t underestimate ifi safeguarded as best as possible. and if i may, can i ask you one last andy ruinr this time. thing? a lot of people are looking good morning. at this and thinking of all people, andy ruinr this time. a windy weekend in store, especially tomorrow. this man should never have been it will not be particularly released. when you look at his cold, but pretty wet history, what he had done over the weather to come at times. yea rs history, what he had done over the years and how he had reoffended and more coming up. clearly, his state of mind, they will be utterly baffled as to how it it‘s saturday the 7th of december. our top story. was that this man managed to get out there are calls for an independent
7:30 am
review into the "shocking failures" free. yes, indeed, they will, and i that meant a serial rapist was released from jail by accident. he then carried out a series listen to present hardwick, the of attacks on women former chair of the parole board who and children. joseph mccann was released earlier this endorsed effectively what you said. year after an error by the probation service. he has pointed to the fact that his 11 victims over a 2—week period mccann should never have been included a pensioner released from prison in the first and an 11—year—old boy. place. two wrongs don't make a right john mcmanus has more. and i'm not suggesting that but joseph mccann captured on cctv again, there was a flaw in the system, communications were not as in a petrol station. they ought to have been, clearly, the assistant behind the counter has and people were under pressure and no idea that the customer it appears mistakes were made by opposite him is a sadistic criminal. staff and my sympathies go out to the families and the vic aims of outside in mccann‘s car, sits a woman too terrified this terrible, terrible situation —— to attempt to escape. victims. ian lawrence, thank you for he has already assaulted her after kidnapping her, your time this morning. it is half after she left this club. a few days later, he abducts past seven and we will be back with 01:30:45,566 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 the headlines shortly. another woman near this tube station in london, then, not long after, a third woman. terrible in itself, but instead of being free to terrorise them, mccann should have been behind bars. in 2008, he was jailed for an aggravated burglary at the home of an 85—year—old man.
7:31 am
in 2017, he was freed on licence. the same year he was arrested for new offences and should have been recalled to prison, but was not. a year later, he was sentenced for his new crimes and should have gone before the parole board before he was considered safe to be freed, instead, at the start of this year, he was mistakenly let out and free to go on to attack 11 women and children. yesterday he was convicted of 37 offences, including kidnap and rape. now, richard burgon, labour‘s shadowjustice secretary, has called for an investigation, saying the public must have full confidence in the justice system. he wants an independent review into what labour calls "shocking failures" and "deep government cuts". the probation service has apologised, with one officer being demoted and another sacked, but that is little comfort to mccann‘s victims. john mcmanus, bbc news.
7:32 am
boris johnson and jeremy corbyn have gone head to head in a tv debate for the final time before the general election next week. they put forward competing visions on brexit, the nhs, and the economy, and attacked each other‘s plans — but neither scored a knockout blow. our political correspondent, nick eardley, was there. with just a few days until the country goes to the polls, one of the last big chances to persuade voters. how would we be better off from the brexit deal or a future labout deal compared to what we already have as a member of the eu? can you guarantee that it will happen next year? on brexit, they attacked each other. what i haven‘t heard from the leader of the labour party, this deal that he thinks he can get in three months‘ time, who is going to negotiate it? who is going to secure this deal? the news came out of what's happening with northern ireland... for people who did not hear the news, what are you claiming the documents show? they show quite clearly that there are going to be charges, there are going to be customs checks, there are going to be
7:33 am
restrictions on trade between britain and northern ireland. what the document also says is that northern ireland is part of the customs territory of the uk. all his political life he has campaigned to break up that union and actually supported for four decades the ira in their campaign violently to destroy it. how about the prime minister showing a degree of honesty and so it is a question of openness on all of this. he says you have supported people who are opposed to the union your whole life, you don't even believe... what i have done is always wanted to see a peace process in northern ireland and that is exactly what we have got and thank you to the labour government that negotiated it. labour wants voters to think about a lot more than brexit next week, though. it costs a lot to train as a nurse, but the starting salaries are low. how would you deal with the shortage of nurses and ensure the nhs can retain them? mr corbyn again questioned claims made by the conservatives.
7:34 am
announced there was going to be 40 new hospitals. a week later that became 20. a bit later on, it became six new hospitals. he seems to have a problem with the figures about hospital building in britain. we have a very clear agenda, which is to upgrade 20 hospitals, to build 40 new ones. it is perfectly true that the cash allocation for the whole hospital build is for six initially, but we are putting in the seed funding now. both parties have faced questions on how they will pay for all their promises and, with the question of trust so high on the agenda... what punishment do you think is appropriate for elected politicians who lie during political campaigns? they should be made to go on to their knees... ..down through the chamber of the house of commons scourging themselves with copies of their offending documents which claim to prove one thing and actually prove something quite different. jeremy corbyn? when people paint slogans on the side of a bus that
7:35 am
are totally unsustainable, perhaps it is time that we do have an independent monitoring of what goes on. actually, if you look at the numbers we put on the side of the bus, look at the gross figure we pay to the eu, the number is going up. with polls suggesting the tories are ahead, that may suit mrjohnson more than mr corbyn. but, with just a few days left in the campaign, nothing is certain. nick eardley, bbc news, maidstone. let‘s get more on that from our political correspondent matt cole, who is in maidstone where last night‘s election debate took place. we are five days before polling day. what difference that made? ideally, one of those men wanted to come out one of those men wanted to come out on top. anyone who is undecided, get them onside. did either of them manage? i think we have pretty much a draw last night and most people scored it fairly evenly, both in the
7:36 am
spin room outside the studio where politicians and pundits were mingling, and yougov, the polling organisation scored it 52, 48. it was close. what we got from last night in the moments after is the party is telling us how they will frame the last days of debate. the conservatives saying what you saw is a man who could deliver brexit and bea a man who could deliver brexit and be a leader versus a man who could not. labour came out with their people saying what you saw was a man who can deliver a vision for society and public services and a man who cannot. i think those are the key themes and messages both parties wa nt themes and messages both parties want us to take away from last night. i guess both this morning will be thinking, at least i did not say anything horrendous i am regretting this morning that has knocked me out of the race. five days to go, they still think there is plenty to play for.

ajury in california has acquitted the tech entrepreneur and tesla founder, elon musk, of defaming a british caver who he called "pedo guy" on twitter. vernon unsworth — who helped rescue 12 boys from a flooded cave in thailand last year — had been seeking almost £150 million in damages. his legal team have told the bbc they‘re now considering filing for a retrial. dave lee has more. elon musk entered court on friday for the fourth and now final day of this trial. what has surely been the most intense, not to mention expensive examination ever of a single tweet. how many of you? that tweet, sent in july 2018, came in the midst of the miraculous rescue of 12 thai boys and their football coach from a flooded cave. vernon unsworth, a british man who lived nearby, was instrumental in advising that effort. elon musk also travelled to the region with a specially designed mini—submarine.

in a tv interview, mr unsworth called it a pr stunt, prompting mr musk to snap back, using the phrase "pedo guy". he later deleted the tweet, but vernon unsworth sued him for defamation, arguing he had wrongly been accused of paedophilia. elon musk was described in court as a billionaire bully, a man who dropped a nuclear bomb into the life of vernon unsworth. but the jury saw it differently. they said the tweet was an insult but not an accusation, a view which could set a precedent when it comes to libel cases involving social media. this verdict sends a signal, and one signal only, that you can make any accusation you want to, as vile as it may be, as damaging at it may be, as untrue as it may be, and someone can get away with it. the only thing i'm going to say is the jury got this right, and we don't have any further comment at this time. how is mr musk with the decision? everyone is well. thank you all.
7:39 am
ultimately, mr unsworth‘s lawyers were unable to prove that his life had been sufficiently negatively impacted. indeed, in the days after the tweet, the defence argued mr unsworth was the focus of celebration and praise, not suspicion. it means that while ill—judged tweets may have cost mr musk millions of dollars in the past, that was not to be the case this time. i accept the jury verdict, take it on the chin, and move on. dave lee, bbc news. it‘s feared a giant bushfire that‘s burning out of control near sydney may take weeks to put out. in recent days, several fires have combined to form what emergency services are calling a ‘mega—blaze‘ on a belt of land about an hour‘s drive north of the city. our correspondent phil mercer joins us from sydney now. brig is up—to—date with the latest situation. this fire has a fire
7:40 am
front of about 40 miles. in size, it is bigger in area than the sydney metropolitan area itself, so this is a giant bushfire burning and hours drive to the north—west of sydney, created by five large fires combining. the authorities say it is too big and burning so ferociously that they do not anticipate being able to put it out until heavy rain arrives. they are trying to contain the fire to keep it away from populated areas and property. the upshot is that this fire is sending a huge shroud of smoke over australia‘s biggest city, sydney, which has been blanketed by this toxic haze that could linger for days. australia‘s bushfire season continues and it looks like being a
7:41 am
hot and dangerous one for resident and fire crews. thank you. the record held by elvis presley for the most number—one albums by a solo artist in the uk has been equalled by robbie williams. #so # so here it is, merry christmas, everybody‘s having fun. the christmas present is his 13th to hit the top spot, which means only two of his solo albums have failed to reach number one. the beatles hold the overall record with 15 uk number one albums. we met robbie a couple of weeks ago ahead of his album release — here‘s what he had to say. i‘m 45, i have three beautiful, healthy children, a wife i absolutely adore and a job that is just incredible and i am enjoying myself.
7:42 am
and if you had asked me the same thing at 25, i would have thought a, you‘re mad — any of that‘s and, b, it was impossible. good for him. susan will have the weather. it is changeable ahead. let‘s return to next week‘s general election — so far this morning we‘ve heard from the conservatives, the snp and the liberal democrats. last night, boris johnson and jeremy corbyn faced each other in a bbc debate ahead of thursday‘s polls. we can talk now to andy mcdonald from labour, who‘s in middlesbrough. good morning. good morning. was last nightan good morning. good morning. was last night an opportunity forjeremy corbyn to make more of an impact, to perhaps change the narrative around the labour party, being behind in
7:43 am
the labour party, being behind in the polls so far? and did he manage to do it? i think he did, i think he was very to do it? i think he did, i think he was very strong and clear and consistent, and i think he sent out the message that we need to find a mechanism to heal the country. we are divided and what we are setting out on the crucial issue of brexit is an adult and intelligent response to it and i think that plays well and is certainly understood on the doorstep when i have those conversations. he has not said anything new. labour is trailing in the polls. my question was, did he manage to do anything to change the narrative, to change the attitude towards the labour party of those who are not impressed by it? towards the labour party of those who are not impressed by mm towards the labour party of those who are not impressed by it? it has been important to develop our plan and explain our manifesto in as much
7:44 am
detail as we can in the weeks that have gone by and the days ahead. as that continually happens, i think we will see the polls narrowing and i am confident we will get a good result on thursday. my question, though, was about whetherjeremy corbyn has managed to change the narrative in the debate and change attitudes enough for people to vote for the labour party. i think he has, because his innate decency and principle shines through. we have had a lot of stories about how the prime minister has behaved by contrast, over the past weeks, and his previous pronouncements in newspaper articles, how he dismisses and denigrates the working class. and single mothers and so on. i think there is a stark contrast
7:45 am
between a man of integrity, honesty and decency, as opposed to what has been set out by this prime minister who in my view is not fit to occupy that position. let's talk about issues that went to and fro between the two yesterday. one of those was about boris johnson‘s the two yesterday. one of those was about borisjohnson‘s brexit deal and jeremy corbyn said a deal is agreed that places border checks between great britain and northern ireland and puts the union at risk. what is tricky in times like this is whenjeremy corbyn, who has campaigned for a united ireland, who has said to nicola sturgeon and made clear to the snp he will consider a referendum, independence referendum for scotland, after two years, if labour were in government, does he, the party value the union?
7:46 am
absolutely and that is why we have said to the snp in clear terms, there will be no deal done on the election of a labour government and if we were to countenance that, it will not be in the early years of labour government. not for two yea rs. labour government. not for two years. yes, not for two years. the good friday agreement that was a superb resolution of decades of troubles in northern ireland, is very clear. the status of northern ireland will only change with the consent of the people and that has been sustained for all of these yea rs been sustained for all of these years and that is now being put in jeopardy by a prime minister who told the dup no british prime minister would put a border down the irish sea, and he has done exactly that. it is as plain as a pike staff that. it is as plain as a pike staff that there will be checks, his own
7:47 am
document say so, his brexit secretary says so, yet he has the gall to say that is wrong and despite the governments own documentation setting it out clearly asjeremy documentation setting it out clearly as jeremy revealed. you are open to allowing people to vote in scotland two years after being in government, to separate from the union. and i think on the election of a labour government, if we address issues of brexit in the right and sensible way, by way of an option of a credible deal to leave the european union opposite remain, my view is the clamourfor union opposite remain, my view is the clamour for independence, such as nicola sturgeon would have you believe exists, whatever it is, will subside, because people will recognise their best interests are served by maintaining scotland‘s union in the uk and by way of the credible way we would leave the european union or alternatively stay
7:48 am
in. ithink european union or alternatively stay in. i think the imperative behind any call for a independence referendum will fade away. one thing we are covering today isjoseph mccann, a violent criminal who sexually assaulted several women, young children, on an horrific rampage, after being incorrectly released from the prison system. last nightjeremy corbyn was asked about the westminster attack and he said he does not believe people should be locked up and the key thrown away. do you think and you cannot speak on behalf ofjeremy corbyn, but you can on behalf of the labour party that is led byjeremy corbyn, do you think an offender likejoseph corbyn, do you think an offender like joseph mccann should corbyn, do you think an offender likejoseph mccann should have the opportunity to be rehabilitated after what he has done?” opportunity to be rehabilitated after what he has done? i think the courts will decide that and he
7:49 am
clearly —— it clearly is available to them to have a whole life term. my to them to have a whole life term. my view is that man should never be released. the crimes he has committed are horrific beyond imagining. icannot committed are horrific beyond imagining. i cannot begin to contemplate how those victims are now, and the trauma they suffered. the courts will use all of the sentencing facility available to them and i strongly suspect this man will never see the light of day again. these are off the scale, beyond the pale offences, and he is showing no remorse. i suspect the pa role showing no remorse. i suspect the parole board in the years ahead will deem him a menace and future risk to people which cannot be entertained. so that is how i expect that process to develop. of course, the courts will do that which is why we have an independent system to deal with
7:50 am
these things for us. thank you very much. plans for the weekend. here‘s susan with a look at this morning‘s weather. good morning and immutable morning here, we have been sent this picture in the last hour. a little bit of cloud on the horizon and that ties in with the way the forecast is going. for the majority, in with the way the forecast is going. forthe majority, high pressure has kept things clear overnight with mild air but low pressure is approaching from the north—west and will bring more cloud and in scotland and northern ireland, rain. in the second half of the day. the heaviest in northern ireland not until after dark but in north—west scotland, increasingly wet and windy in the afternoon. sunshine hanging on in southern and eastern england. the weatherfront will make its way across the uk
7:51 am
overnight saturday into sunday so a couple of hours of heavy rain in all areas and behind it, the winter. overnight temperatures falling away but plenty of showers brought in and this area of low pressure will mean widespread gales across the uk and winters increasing later on sunday into monday. sunday, off to a windy start, and through the course of the day the wind will drive showers further eastwards and some are likely to be wintry on the highest ground. it is what the low does through sunday evening as we see more organised showers digging down across the irish sea and isobars squeezing together. winters up to 75 mph in some coastal areas, strong enough to cause damage which could lead to disruption especially if you
7:52 am
are travelling on monday morning. worth checking your options before you head off. on monday, low pressure will move away and it should be quite a dry day. high pressure clearing the skies. but look at the direction of the isobars, north to south, and a blast of arctic air. showers in the east, most clearing. a lot of sunshine on monday but had different feel to that of the weekend, crisper and clearer weather on the way. the week ahead, do not get too comfortable with any scenario. tuesday is mobile again. wednesday, cold, showers at the end of the week. it looks like it will be milder and wet and windy at the moment. gloves one day and back with the umbrella of the next. back to you. shuffling around the wardrobe is what we will be doing. mike barton, former chief constable of durham police, is here. looking at the morning papers. in
7:53 am
yourformer role, we have been talking about joseph yourformer role, we have been talking aboutjoseph mccann this morning and the horrendous crimes he committed. what we now know is he should not have been freed. i do not know if from your police career, what you saw then has relevance to what you saw then has relevance to what we have seen play out now. what you saw then has relevance to what we have seen play out nowm is complicated because the sentence they had, the ipp, has now been abolished. albeit you said he should not have been released, what should have happened was he should have gone through the parole board to see if he was dangerous. there has definitely been mistakes made and it has been admitted, but when i was, in 2012, when the first reforms, catastrophic reforms, were done to probation by chris grayling, everybody in the industry said it would be a disaster, so i am delighted it has been overturned but
7:54 am
tragically, there will be more cases like this because the probation service, i see it underfunded, catastrophically reorganise, and it has to have time to rebuild. let's ta ke has to have time to rebuild. let's take at other stories you have picked out. have you got green fingers? i have little brown fingers. a keen gardener? i love gardening and i love raised beds. this is why it has caught my eye. the great thing about raised beds, you do not walk on them and you can till the soil with your hands, so it is not hard and contacted because i once had clay soil in my garden and it isa once had clay soil in my garden and it is a donkeyjob to actually turn it is a donkeyjob to actually turn it over. i have no idea what that means. i am not a gardener. clay soil is very hard. you want a sandy soil. you can get that with raised beds. what is the problem with
7:55 am
farmers ploughing feels too frequently? there is a range of themes in this story but there is now a growing campaign group that talks about harvest and they talk about 60 harvests and they say the earth soil is being depleted so quickly because of industrial farming methods. if you remember the history books, the dust bowl in the 19305in history books, the dust bowl in the 19305 in america, the grapes of rath, that was because of over tilling the soil —— wrath. the idea is you do not plough as much and you allow the soil to generate its own fertility. let's look at the other stories. 1700 years ago, an egg, found intact. one of four, the other three were broken. this is an intact
7:56 am
hen‘s egg from the roman era. how do they know? because it was in a pit they know? because it was in a pit they were digging in aylesbury that was a roman pit and the eggs were found alongside the other artefacts from 1700 years ago. when they broke three of the eggs, it stank. it is a boy thing. imagine how a 1700 year old rotten egg smell is. probably like a stink bomb. do you remember buying those as a kid? you do not seem buying those as a kid? you do not seem to see them now. probably outlawed. the fun we had. the only other intact roman egg was found, where? rome. well done. shall we stick to the food theme. mince pies.
7:57 am
i have still not had a mince pie yet. too early. proper mince pies that we enjoy, do not give them to dogs because raisins are poisonous for dogs. this is enterprising supermarkets that decided because it says here, 54% of millennials would rather cut spending on themselves than their pets, they are saying you can have a proper mince pie designed for dogs. but, be careful. there is a sting in the tail, 52% of britain‘s pets are overweight. charlie, will you buy your dog a pet mince pie? no, and my dog is not overweight. that is a huge percentage. you do see a lot of overweight dogs. maybe too many pies. iam nota too many pies. i am not a massive mince pie fan. but there is a thing called
7:58 am
pawsecco, which is a mock drink for cats. what a way to go over to matt, taking over at 10am. feeding your pets? i have to cats. does pawsecco appeal? it does. i do not think they would like it, they prefer squirrels. they try to drag pigeons and squirrels through the cat flap. enough about my cats. we have a very special guest today, luke evans. good to have you here. nice to be here. we will talk about your new album injust here. we will talk about your new album in just a here. we will talk about your new album injust a bit. now, food heaven. heaven would be roast chicken, carrots, vegetables. and food hell? gnocchi, i chicken, carrots, vegetables. and food hell? gnocchi, lam not a fan. sam and!
7:59 am
food hell? gnocchi, lam not a fan. sam and i am not a fan. gnocchi and salmon. two great ruth hanson.” sam and i am not a fan. gnocchi and salmon. two great ruth hanson. i am making a roasted cauliflower mousse and a comput and seasonal vegetables. and jose pizarro. i am cooking fideos con caballa. with mackerel. and a winter salad. brighten us up? definitely. olly smith is pushing his trolley.” brighten us up? definitely. olly smith is pushing his trolley. i have wine from the mountains and from the seaside, freshness in both, one is rich and one is light but both delicious. and you at home are in charge of what luke evans eats later on. and you will be doing a little bit of singing later. if you want. we do. it depends on how good the wine is. have you ever seen such an
8:00 am
ugly wine is. have you ever seen such an —up wine is. have you ever seen such an ugly line—up on this show? wine is. have you ever seen such an ugly line-up on this show? well, when you are there, it always brings it down a little bit. but at least you have others to raise the bar. and can you promise you will not be singing, matt? then you will keep the viewers. i will keep it strictly to luke evans. the headlines coming up to luke evans. the headlines coming up in to luke evans. the headlines coming upina to luke evans. the headlines coming up in a moment. hello, this is breakfast with charlie stayt and naga munchetty. a summary of this morning‘s main news.
8:01 am
there are calls for an independent review into the shocking failures that meant a serial rapist was released from jail by accident. he then carried out a series of attacks on women and children. joseph mccann was released earlier this year after an error by the probation service. his 11 victims over a two—week period included a pensioner and an 11—year—old boy. he is due to be sentenced on monday. in the last hour, the former victims‘ commissioner, baroness newlove, told us the justice system is in need of reform. this is about a process that time and time again lets victims down, and time again lets victims down, and the victim‘s voice is not being listened to. the judiciary, and the victim‘s voice is not being listened to. thejudiciary, the criminal justice system listened to. thejudiciary, the criminaljustice system is not fit for purpose and i will keep on championing these victims and saying how courageous, how brave they are to sit on a dock and to describe the actions of this violent offender, and we don‘t even know if he‘s going
8:02 am
to appearfor and we don‘t even know if he‘s going to appear for sentencing. what is going on with ourjudicial system that we allow a person do that? borisjohnson and jeremy corbyn have gone head—to—head in a tv debate for the final time before the general election next week. they put forward competing visions on brexit, the nhs, and the economy, and attacked each other‘s plans — but neither scored a knockout blow. ajury in california has acquitted the tech entrepreneur and tesla founder, elon musk, of defaming a british caver who he called "paedo guy" on twitter. vernon unsworth — who helped rescue 12 boys and their football coach from a flooded cave in thailand last year — had been seeking almost £150 million in damages. his legal team have told the bbc they‘re now considering filing for a re—trial. it‘s feared a giant bushfire that‘s burning out of control near sydney may take weeks to put out. in recent days, severalfires have combined to form what emergency services are calling a "mega blaze" on a belt of land about an hour‘s drive north of the city. since october, australian bushfires have killed six people and destroyed
8:03 am
more than 700 homes. they‘ve been a distinctive part of the landscape in shropshire for half a century — but they disappeared in just seconds. four huge cooling towers at a power station in ironbridge were demolished in simultaneous controlled explosions. hundreds gathered to see it happen. the station stopped generating electricity four years‘ ago and the land will be used for 1,000 new homes and a school. ollie is going to paint a picture of a boxing match of epic proportions, 9pm this evening? that says it all, that picture beside you. it looks like a mismatch, anthonyjoshua, an absolute physical specimen, then you have andy ruiz absolute physical specimen, then you have andy ruinunior, 20 stone, he was a late stand—in, but he beat him six months ago, so everyone is being cagey about how this could go
8:04 am
tonight. can you explain the picture because he has on a hat. yes, he is very proud of his mexican heritage. nobody laughs at him now, because he is the world champion, with three belts to his name. joshua would have stepped up his preparation? this could be career ending if this doesn‘t go his way. could be career ending if this doesn't go his way. there is a man on standby going to tell us all about it. anthonyjoshua was stopped in the second round —— seventh round injune at in the second round —— seventh round in june at madison in the second round —— seventh round injune at madison square garden. that is one of the great boxing arenas. they are in saudi arabia this evening for the rematch. that is where we go now to speak to
8:05 am
boxing writer and broadcaster steve bunce, who will be on duty with 5 live this evening. steve, joshua has got to lose here, you were one of those six months ago that couldn‘t see past a joshua victory, everyone‘s being a bit cagier about how this is going to go. it might very well be over for joshuaif it might very well be over for joshua if there is any repeat of the mayhem, the violence and lunacy and unexpected craziness of that glorious night on the 1st ofjune, at madison square garden. what happened there was he was concussed in the first round and fought for another four rounds before it was stopped. shouldn‘t it have been stopped. shouldn‘t it have been stopped in the third? not really because here is the crazy thing. he was caught high on the temple, which meant he lost control of his body. his head was clear, he knew what he was doing, but couldn‘t tell his likes to do anything or his hands. he fought an instinct, his eyes were glazed and he managed to keep getting up, twice he got up on the
8:06 am
third round. the referee took a long, hard look at him at the end of the third round, and here is the crazy thing, in the fifth round he took control of the fight. all three of the ringsidejudges in took control of the fight. all three of the ringside judges in that arena gave him the fifth round. but that was his last hurrah. in the sixth he took a slow beating, and then down on the seventh two more times, fight over, dream finished. it is charlie, we spoke yesterday, what extraordinary thing this is. hello, charlie. andy ruiz is a really interesting character. i read when he was six years old his family pushed him into boxing, and his father put him into rings with older people just to push father put him into rings with older peoplejust to push him. it is a really interesting story. what i find with him, and i will be careful how i worried this, because sometimes people are nervous when i
8:07 am
go on live tv and radio, but here is the bottom line, andy ruiz was pampered little fat boy, you can say extra weight, the bottom line as he described himself as a fat little kid. his father, who was a match or mexican, he was thinking of ways, how can i toughen him up? he thought i will stick him in a boxing gym. he is tiny, but he is rotund. everyone picked on him. everyone picked on him for ten years and he grew tough behind that abuse. so his father‘s decision upsetting his mother and aunts and sisters, it worked a treat because it made him tough. six years of age. this is not hollywood, he didn‘t suddenly look like an adonis, he had a fat belly when he was six and he still has one now. and he is proud of it. and he has the three titles to his name. six months ago you were one of those who could not
8:08 am
see beyond joshua this time? the same way this time. call me a full, i see same way this time. call me a full, iseea same way this time. call me a full, i see a differentjoshua this time. he is £10 lighter but his head is packed with revenge, packed with tactics. he will fight differently and box differently, and hopefully a young joshua are the result will be different. thank you, the fight is around nine o‘clock this evening on five live. there is a man who has done his research, went back to when andy ruiz was six years old to check out the size of his belly. he is excited by, wait untilfight time. just the five premier league matches this afternoon but one of them is the the manchester derby, pep guardiola‘s city are looking
8:09 am
to eat into liverpool‘s 11 point lead at the top of the table, united are 11 points behind city, but they had a good win a few days ago against spurs. confidence is a strange thing in football sometimes. you can get performances and results likely had on wednesday night, and i know our boys will be up for it. 5:30 is the start of the game and the players decide who is going to win. the rest, of course, history is huge and the team, the quality of the players they have is always there, always has been there, and you have to try to beat them and we try today to speak a little bit with the players about what they are as a team and what they should do to win. it‘s the european champions cup in rugby union this weekend, bath are having a tough time of it. they are stuck at the bottom of their group after being beaten 34—17 clemont auvergne at the rec.
8:10 am
the french ran in four tries to secure a bonus point, with samuel ezeala twice crossing the line. they go back to the top of the pool. bath have lost all three of their games so far. finally, a bit of golf. this from leading amateur ta kumi ka naya sums up golf in one shot. the japanese player had this putt on the 15th for a birdie. agony and ecstasy in the blink of an eye. he missed the drop. he missed the drop. he gave up, he thought it wasn‘t going to happen. and he is the number one amateur, tied for third. the golfers were complaining of the bushfires with the ash and smoke stinging their
8:11 am
eyes. ajury in california has acquitted the tech entrepreneur and tesla founder, elon musk, of defaming a british caver who he called "paedo guy" on twitter. vernon unsworth — who helped rescue 12 boys from a flooded cave in thailand last year — had been seeking almost £150 million in damages. his legal team have told the bbc they‘re now considering filing for a re—trial. dave lee has been to meet his lawyer. tell me how you‘re feeling about the verdict.
8:12 am
obviously disappointed. with the verdict. it was i think a sub optimal verdict. what we‘ve had, as we have now had the opportunities to do in california, to have some of the jurors interviewed, we now understand why the verdict was the way it was and it appears that thejurors, quite astonishingly, thought that vernon unsworth was not identified by elon musk in his tweets. of course, there are millions of people who around the world, who knew he was referring to vernon unsworth, who would go slack—jawed and astonished that particular allegation. the entire population of the uk, the entire population of thailand and many other places besides. after court, mr unsworth said he is having to put his life back together, get things back on track. but it sounds like you are not quite satisfied this is over yet, so where are we? i think that, as a lawyer, i am pained when i see an injustice and i think i saw an injustice here in los angeles. i think one of the problems about this is that vernon is a task, heroic kind of guy. he has raced in the isle of man tt. he goes where no other person would go in caves, not even other cave rescuers will go. he is a very brave man.
8:13 am
he will stick his chin out, bite his stiff, british upper lip, and he will move on. but it does not mean it is not painful and it doesn‘t hurt. of course it is going to hurt. but, of course, there is the possibility, there is the light at the end of the tunnel that, actually, this jury verdict is unsafe and unsound and should be overturned, because we all know, a moron in a hurry knows, that those tweets were about to vernon unsworth and they were false. we are going to introduce you to someone we are going to introduce you to someone rather special who has just joined us on the sofa. this is georgina. she is here with her mum and dad, paul and georgina. she is here with her mum and dad, pauland louise. look georgina. she is here with her mum and dad, paul and louise. look at that, she knows exactly where the camera is.
8:14 am
there is a careerfor her. if camera is. there is a career for her. if you look very carefully, you can see that she is wearing hearing aids, and before we see what is a rather beautiful moment, tell us the nature of her hearing problem. she has a hearing loss, severe, which means it is permanent, she was born with it. it got picked up at a newborn hearing screening that they do when they are born, so she failed the test and went for more, and it developed from there. we have had their hearing aids since she was six weeks old. so we have had a bit of time to get used to them now, and when you put them on, it isjust brilliant. this is what has warmed the cockles of many, many people. we will show you the moment when those hearing aids were turned on, and you videoed it, paul, and you put it on social media. shall we say hello to
8:15 am
everybody? shall we say hello? squeals that is a very loud hello. shall we say hello? squeals you‘re obviously talking to her, was the first time she had hurt herself? every morning we put them in, we get amazing reactions, that was one of the mornings we get to get this reaction, where it turns on and she realises she can hear herself. we have seen that, which is obviously her reacting to the noise she is hearing, but before, without, how would that have been different? how would that have been different? how would it have been? ithink would that have been different? how would it have been? i think before, she was less attentive, less
8:16 am
focused, and clearly wasn't reacting or responding to sound, but once we put the men in the morning, you do notice a remarkable notice, i have to say. — — notice a remarkable notice, i have to say. —— a noticeable difference. have you been surprised at how many people have responded ? have you been surprised at how many people have responded? once you put something like this on social media and people start reposting it, people love delightful moments. and people start reposting it, people love delightful momentsm has been genuinely heart—warming as a parent because if you look at the comments on twitter or facebook or social media, it is pretty heart—warming. what i've found particularly nice was when people had shared their stories, so if you go through the stories and see comments from families of children with hearing loss, it has started a bit of conversation. what is so obvious, when it is really interesting sitting here watching her because it is very obvious that albeit she is looking at the floor now, but she is clearly following voices and is drawn when you‘re
8:17 am
speaking, it is very obvious, you can see the difference. it is amazing, the technology now, because if she didn‘t have those, she would not turn towards the sound. it is brilliant. and the prognosis is this is permanent, this condition? absolutely. it is permanent. what can she hear with the hearing aids, does it come back to almost 100%?” don't think it will ever get back to 100% but you get the conversational dialogue, the phonetic dialogue and the things you need to start developing language, so that is the difference the sort of technology makes, and what is really important is the early intervention.” makes, and what is really important is the early intervention. ijust wa nt to is the early intervention. ijust want to ask, is she always this well—behaved? want to ask, is she always this well-behaved? we are pushing our luck a little, but she is good. she wins the best behaved baby on the sofa for months, years. we will take
