6:04 am
few days? four days left, they know they need to pull out all the stops, really to try to get the final votes. so hammering home the m essa 9 es votes. so hammering home the messages that they have been talking about throughout this campaign. and i thought we said goodbye to the rain. we said goodbye to bbc one, so about throughout this campaign. and so for boris johnson, about throughout this campaign. and so for borisjohnson, yes, he is talking about how this election but not the rain. it is getting could shape the future decades and windier as the week progresses. is he is telling people that they should move forwards instead of voting for the past. then we have that right, susan? oh my goodness, jeremy corbyn talking about this yes. it is a lively set of weather being potentially an opportunity to fronts we are bringing fronts we are yes. it is a lively set of weather vote for hope and that's very much fronts we are bringing to you for the next few days. the areas of low his line and he is talking about how this is a chance to transform the pressure, widespread gales affecting just about all parts of the uk, and country and affect real change. in the risk that those winds are going terms of what they are doing today, to cause some disruption. so that they are travelling around the will be the biggest headache, particularly if you‘re planning on country, really putting those travelling. this is our culprit today, swelling away with its centre m essa 9 es country, really putting those m essa g es to country, really putting those messages to the voters. but no significant policy announcements in the atlantic. this system has today. what we're getting from sent a weather front through overnight. the more conservatives is more detail on a persistent rain now clearing but the showers packing in and this deep low points —based immigration system. with labour they are focusing on centre means tightly packed isobars social care and the £10 billion they are putting into that stop and and strong, strong winds. so personal care for older people being widespread gales today. showers the focus for that. the liberal crowding into the north and west democrats, they are talking about regional rebalancing and so talking already, getting driven eastwards
6:05 am
through the central belt of scotland. we will see some across about electrifying the railways and the north—east of england, wales, the north—east of england, wales, increasing the availability of the south—west, tracking their way charging points in a kind of thing. east through the afternoon. some the snp talking about how they see heavy and thundery ones possible in the south—east of england. sunny spells possibly best for the this as a significant election in terms of the future of scotland. north—east of england and east those are the messages from the anglia. temperatures actually fall different parties today. when you as we go through the day. mildest get to the stage, susanna, we know probably at the moment across southern england, and then we get to too well that we look at the polls the wind. now, these are our gusts coming in, how much importance you for the afternoon. you can see place on that? tokkos through the opinion polls that have come out there, 50—60 around some west today. we have the latest opinion coasts. through the evening and overnight, those winds, especially polls putting the conservatives on adjacent to the irish sea, could 33 -- talk touch up to 80 mph in the odd spot. polls putting the conservatives on 33 —— talk us through. that's just a slight narrowing of the poly that strong enough to do some damage. the seas will be very choppy, that is the tories have over labour. likely to cause some disruption. and suggesting that the polling for them those problems will carry on into seems to be getting quite static at monday. things in the west improve, the moment and labour seem to be in the east we have quite a strong picking up potential support at the northerly wind, even behind that area of low pressure. then it is the turn of the north sea, something pretty and gale force winds carrying expense, we think, of the liberal democrats. it is important to note some showers into eastern coastal these are polls. we don't know counties through monday. they will whether or not that will be reflected in terms of what happens peter outcome the afternoon as we
6:06 am
in the real poll which, of course, see clearer whether coming in from the west. a chilly field to monday, is on thursday of this week. and so as well, with the northerly wind. it will feel closer to freezing, for i think is on thursday of this week. and so ithink in is on thursday of this week. and so i think in these last few days we example, in aberdeen. to the west, will have all of the parties trying you might have just caught that to hammer home their message to try weather front trying to sneak in to hammer home their message to try to get people to vote for them. 0k, there. that is tied into with susanna, thank you very much. another area of low pressure. and more than 30 people have been killed all change on tuesday. the wind picks up from the south—west. much milderair picks up from the south—west. much milder air arriving but look at the ina huge more than 30 people have been killed in a huge factory fire in delhi. rain, a washout across the uk on rescue services say that dozens of sleepers —— workers were sleeping tuesday. there will be some dry inside the building at the time of spells in between times, but overall the fire. a wet day. another windy day, with attempts to bring huge bushfires in sydney under control could be hampered due to rising temperatures the risk of widespread gales, but temperatures leap back up into caused by a heatwave in australia. fire officials say 100 fires have formed a ‘mega blaze' covering over double figures. that milder 1,000 square miles, which has been interlude, though, marked out by the sending plumes of black smoke across the city. yellow here behind me. short lived phil mercer has the latest. on wednesday. we are back into the blue, the arctic air, the wind swinging around to the north—west. some showers around but some sunny this sounds like a real threat and a spells as well. thursday and friday, it looks like things will become real danger and a real worry over milder again as we switch around there. the danger day is shaping up again toa to be tuesday. about 100 fires milder again as we switch around again to a south—westerly wind. but again to a south—westerly wind. but a strong wind at that and some

6:09 am
time of year, as the temperature dropped and the entertainment came the famous south korean beauty routine requires to an end, there was a gentle some serious homework. coaxing into bed by dame helen mirren. i am your bedtime story. korean women are usually using like five steps on the skincare. they don't have a home. there is no roof. sleeping out in this cold so we have a toner, lotion, weather and i have like a million soothing, and cream. and this is the final thermals on, is actually quite cream, another cream. yes. upsetting. i don't have the change i think this might take me 30 minutes every night if i did this. to give them something every day. it no, no, no, if you get used to it, is doing something like this that almost makes you feel like you can less than 10 minutes, help in some way or another. this is you can finish it. the fourth year sir chris hoy has do you think korea is at the top taken part. you get through it. is of its field in terms not much fun. it's a pretty grim of innovation with beauty? i think the cosmetic brand, yes. experience was not that's onenote. only one night, and you get to go home to a warm shower, a warm house, i think the korean people really get some food. so was honest impossible to imagine how life must think about our skin be on the streets. for 20-year-old and the skincare, and aesthetic as well, so i think that korea is the best jay, this event mean so much. she in the world for innovation. used to sleep on buses and in but the perpetual quest for beauty can come ta keaway restau ra nts with some dark consequences. used to sleep on buses and in takeaway restaurants when she was homeless as a teenager. it wasn't a yeunji—sun is one of the leading activists of a growing feminist
6:10 am
co mforta ble homeless as a teenager. it wasn't a comfortable stage of my life. it movement taking a stand against it. wasn't a place they wanted to be in. nobody wants to be homeless, nobody it‘s called the wa nts to anti—corset movement. nobody wants to be homeless, nobody wants to know —— not know what their so the expectation for women in korea to be beautiful, next move is, in a bad way. and it's to have the k—beauty look, how big a pressure a very vulnerable place to be in, is it here? just having nowhere to stay. even though it was just one night, just having nowhere to stay. even though it wasjust one night, those who took part are hoping their effo rts who took part are hoping their efforts can help and homelessness for some forever. chi chi izundu, bbc news. mike thiedke, who helps provide emergency accommodation for people at risk of homelessness, joins us now from trafalgar square. mike, good morning to you, thank you for talking to us this morning. how this huge pressure to be did last night go? it was wet and we beautiful extends beyond skincare and cosmetics. it‘s also about scalpels. all didn't sleep a wink. we had oh, and needles too. about 2000 people on trafalgar square and they were all stuck out welcome to seoul, the world‘s capital of plastic surgery. in the rain. so i pretty happy with that event. i guess, for the people so we are in the upmarket gangnam neighbourhood which you may have who were taking part in this, it heard from that famous korean song. does give them a, even though it is only one night, gives them an # oppan gangnam style!# insight into the life for people for
6:11 am
who this is an everyday reality. but it‘s also known as seoul‘s ‘beauty belt‘ insight into the life for people for who this is an everyday realitylj just who this is an everyday reality.” just talked to quite a few people and there are literally hundreds this morning and it is actually quite incredible when they look at of plastic surgery clinics here. you and they spent the first night on the floor somewhere in the rain south korea is the world‘s champion and they say it's so crazing how for the number of cosmetic procedures per capita. vulnerable you feel immediately once you bend down and you hear the between a third and a half of young noises and you and you don't know south korean women are believed where that comes from. it is quite to have had some kind an intense experience for the people of plastic surgery. andi an intense experience for the people and i think we probably changed the the experience usually starts perception of about 2000 people with a simple photo shoot. tonight here in trafalgar square.” suppose that is the important thing, some computer magic is then applied to the photos some people do say these are just to transform your face, people who can afford it, who are doing it as a bit of a gimmick, people who can afford it, who are doing it as a bit ofa gimmick, not really making a difference, but what you are saying is that it is all before the scalpel does it for real. about raising awarness, i guess. well, it is not an immersive so the moment of truth — experience. i think nobody walks away from this thinking now i feel what do i need to get done? usually for your age, how it would feel to sleep rough. we make the procedure nobody sleeps rough for more than to make your face look a little bit younger.
6:12 am
we make the computer simulation one night. they go home and have a for your face and this is your appearance before surgery shower. but the realisation of what and the right picture is after surgery. that means, to sleep on the ground, in truth, seeing your face transformed and realising the extent in the rain, is pretty intense. and of work to be done to achieve also on top of that we raised about £10 million across the globe and it is a pretty brutal process. when you see the front picture, 60,000 people have taken part in you have some prominent wrinkle, see the fold, and droopy, thick skin. this initiative. i think that in and the cheeks can be lifted. itself says a lot about the value of this event, raising awarness for it is facelift. oh, my gosh. i need a facelift? homelessness, which is so prevalent, especially in the uk. and it has a little lift. become an issue in the general so after the faclift, we can make the cheek skin lifted. election campaign as well, many of sometimes we cut the bone the leading main parties have talked and make the chin sharper. that sounds painful. about homelessness and suggested a little pain, not too much. solutions to try to deal with it. so i could have all what do you think needs to be done, this done in a day? of course, in a day, yes. from your experience? well, dipol uk that‘s amazing. well, thank you, dr kim. you‘re welcome. ok, i‘ll think about it. focuses on young people. that is the bye— bye. bye. but there‘s a backlash. organisation i work for. there are organisation i work for. there are organisation who are specialised in the various different needs of this online video has been viewed homeless people. and i think we more than 8 million times.
6:13 am
biggest thing that we need to face is the complexity of homelessness. it has inspired women to give up it is not a blanket solution that is some simple things like make—up, a new way to take a stand. enough to address the issue. we need bespoke solutions for the very different people who end up on the how is this movement been viewed amongst the young people street and we also need to make sure here in korea? that prevention comes into play. there is so much that can be done through education in schools and educating the public to make sure that people don't end up on the street in the first place. mike, we're very grateful for you to to us. we're very grateful for you to to us. it looks like everyone is backing up and going over that shower. we are grateful for you taking the time to talk to us. mike thiedke, talking to us live from trafalgar square. britain's longest—running rail franchises matters last journey after 22 years of operating stop the virgin trains service arrived at wolverhampton just before midnight. it is being the anti—corset movement is not alone in raising concerns. replaced by avanti west just before midnight. it is being replaced by ava nti west coast. after thousands people complain, just before midnight. it is being replaced by avanti west coast. katie prescott explains what the changes soul‘s metro operator has decided will mean for passengers. to ban all loads of elastic surgery from 2022.

we'll go through it together". and then, of course, what happens is they discover that it is something and they then have to go through medical intervention. and despite the fact he has said, good morning. you know, "i will be it‘s sunday, 8th december. with you through all of it," anthonyjoshua is heavyweight necessarily, their paths champion of the world start to diverge. again after beating andy ruinunior on points. six months on from one of the biggest shocks in boxing history, joshua regained his three titles with a clinical victory in saudi arabia. but the brilliance of the movie is that it manages to intertwine our sports editor, something which is very, dan roan, was there. very big in their lives happening with the small, tiny everyday mundane details it was a fight he of being in hospital. simply dare not lose. here's a clip. what rubbish bin goes out tonight? as he strode to the ring brown or grey? here at the edge of the desert, i'm not sure. anthonyjoshua knew his career what went out last week? and credibility were on the line. if i knew what went out last week, opponent andy ruinunior, i'd know what one goes out tonight. intent on proving his shock victory i think it's grey. in their first meeting earlier this just look what the year was no fluke. neighbours put out. but after cutting the mexican inside the first round, a slimmed down joshua i know it's summer, right, never looked back. but what's the point of having a bin using his jab to expertly control for garden waste here in the winter the rounds and constant movement when there isn't any garden waste? to keep his distance dunno. from his much heavier rival. well, you should know. it wasn‘t a classic. that could be vital information at some point.
6:21 am
vital. the fight never turning into the explosive slugfest that saw really? ruiz stun the boxing world yes, joan. vital. back in june. why don't you go for a walk? instead, a far more composed no. joshua kept to his plan, no, i'll stay and watch tv. racking up the points, and gaining revenge i haven't numbed my with a unanimous victory. brain enough today. 0h. the british fighter able to celebrate becoming just the fourth heavyweight in history and that, to me, says that it's to regain his world title an intimate portrait of a marriage at the first attempt. about — as much as anything. it really is. not just about breast cancer, it's... tonight was just about winning no, absolutely. and trusting my process. i know maybe i could have done more at times, but sometimes simplicity is genius. it is absolutely about their relationship and it is about them facing something in which they say they will be absolutely together and that was the motto — all the way through it keep it simple ‘cause it‘s going but necessarily, they are separated during the process. to lead to a genius performance. but also, its one of those films in which people have conversations in which they appear to be talking about nothing, but they are actually talking about everything whilst talking about nothing. so the couple have this lovely relationship in which they kind of bicker with each other i don't know of three months of in an affectionate way — it's kind of a way of saying i love partying affected me. i need to you without saying i love you. it's sort of complaining about, you know, putting learn from this mistake. the bins out and...
6:22 am
anthonyjoshua can now celebrate a defining victory that restores his reputation among and, i mean, ithought this the true giants of a compelling was beautifully done. heavyweight division, it's directed by glenn leyburn back in boxing‘s big time. and lisa barros d'sa, dan roan, bbc news, diriyah. who made that fantastic movie good vibrations about the belfast punk scene and terri hooley. and i think this is leslie manville's best performance. we‘ll be getting reaction live from saudi arabia i really hope that she gets in the next half—hour. recognised at the baftas. i love her. the main political party leaders are continuing i could watch in anything to push their election pledges and everything, and ever since her mike leigh days, to voters, as the campaign enters its final few days. and you can see this is just... and i loved her in phantom thread as well, but the thing with this conservative leader borisjohnson is what's really brilliant says thursday‘s poll is "historic" about it is firstly, and a choice to "move it has the smack of authenticity. forwards" after brexit. you know, owen mccafferty is writing the labour leaderjeremy corbyn says to some extent from experience. there is one wonderful conversation he has "the most ambitious plan to transform our after they've been for a meeting country in decades". with the doctors and our political correspondent the doctors say "well, look. on a scale of one to five — one being we're not worried and five susanna mendonca joins us now. being we are, this is a three." and they have a conversation about whether three is closer to five than one. and it's exactly the kind of conversation — the absurdist, susanna, final messages nonsensical conversation from party leaders this week. that you would have. what are they saying? i mean, i really believed in their relationship all the way through. i completely believed in the characters. i thought the film was done just four days left and they know with fantastic sensitivity and it's funny. that they need to do all that they
6:23 am
can to get those votes on their site i mean i've seen it three times ahead of the election. what we are and the third time i saw getting from the party leaders is it was in belfast, where the audience laughed a lot because there were some broad messages today. boris a lot ofjokes in it. it's a film that is full of life johnson talking about how this could and full of love and i — ship future decades, basically honestly, ijust loved it. and i can't wait. making the point that people should even having been through it, vote for him because that is voting i can't wait to see it on every level and every day that you described. for moving forward rather than going yeah, it's great. yeah. as we say, a mixed week in terms back to the past. in terms ofjeremy of themes, talk us through... so, motherless brooklyn. corbyn, his big message is this idea rather different. so this is project which edward of voting for hope, a vote for norton has been trying to get off the ground for ages and ages ages, labour would transform the country. based on a novel byjonathan lethem. in terms of the subject they are the setting is now moved to 19505. talking about today specifically, essentially, edward norton plays a private investigator with tourette's syndrome who spends the tories are talking about the the movie attempting to find out what happened to his mentor who was killed at the beginning points—based immigration system. in of the movie. and as the plot unravels, terms of the labour party, focusing we discover that it's to do on social care in the front and they with a huge sort of — it's to do with property and it's are putting into doubt. the liberal to do with conspiracy and it's to do with government and a bunch of other democrats are talking about their things, so it kind of throws but chinatown. plans to rebalance the economy and but at the centre of it, the interactions between about putting money into the characters, a stellar cast — alec baldwin, willem dafoe, infrastructure into parts of the bruce willis, gugu mbatha—raw,
6:24 am
who is so terrific — country outside of london, more and the film looks wonderful. electrical charging points for i think it's really brilliantly designed by beth mickle. it has a very, very fine vehicles, broadband, things like and evocative score. as for norton, he does completely that. the snp talking about how the commit to the role of the private selection is all about making sure investigator with tourette's, which makes him sort of constantly interrupt himself with what appears that scotland has a positive future. to be an inner voice. it's a strange film, only four days to go now. the it's quite long — its 2.5 hours long — and i think that it's something that you have to give pollsters are today in force, as yourself over to. well. talk us through that. some of but if you're willing to let it work its spell — the more recent polls are talking and it's quite a slow—paced film — i actually think it's quite rich about how the conservatives are and you can get lost in that world quite easily. ifound it quite immersive, quite an immersive experience. and a terrific supporting around 41, labouron performance by alec baldwin. about how the conservatives are around 41, labour on 33. in terms of all righty. the average, it is about 42, 32 in um, i really want to lucy in the sky to be good because i love films terms of labour. the conservative about space and exploration and... still in the lead. the ok, look, i think i'm a bit of a lone voice in this, conservatively decreasing somewhat compared to what we have seen because i liked it. ok, so basically... recently at the suggestion that labour are recently at the suggestion that labourare gaining recently at the suggestion that labour are gaining votes potentially from liberal democrat supporters. you are a lone voice, all of this could change. the drupal from everything i've read! yeah, so natalie portman is an astronaut who looks down at the earth from space and then is the one on election day on finds it impossible to readjust
6:25 am
to life back on the ground. here's a clip. thursday, and we never know if the pools will be reflected in what we see in the election itself. thank i'm just a little bit... you for that. i don't know. thank you for that. you know? manchester city have pledged to issue a lifetime ban to "anyone say no more. we've all been there. found guilty of racist abuse" yeah. after manchester united players been where? said they were targeted what did i say? during yesterday‘s derby i don't know, but you said it. at the etihad stadium. that's... city said they were "aware just feel a little off. of a video circulating" online, no, not off. which appears to show a supporter making racist gestures it's more... towards united players. you know how it is. you go up there, you see... our sports presenter everything. the whole universe. olly fosterjoins us now. and everything here looks... so small. devastating to hear this yet again on the pitch. yes, there are weekly we are so small. and then you splash down reports up and down the leagues, but and you go to, what? applebee's? this was the manchester derby at manchester city. a fantastic match, you know, monday night football? clip your toenails? all you can think about is... manchester city. a fantastic match, manchester united one. this incident was a flash way —— a flash point when can i go back? midway through the second half. united were prepared to take a and in a way, the whole film is kind of encapsulated in that exchange, corner. this was broadcast live not
6:26 am
that all you want to do just the millions in this country, is wonder how, you know, when you can get back. and as a result of it, but billions around the world. in she cannot adjust to life the 67th minute, fred was hit with back down here. missiles. he said he was hit by a her marriage starts to fall apart, she becomes, you know, unhinged. lighter. he was one of the players, she is so desperate to get back on another mission, including jesse lingard, who claim she starts to seek outlets in — she starts to break rules, to the club and went to the referee which she has never done saying that they were racially up until this point. now, there is, of course, a true life case in the background abused, as well. that video appeared of all of this but i think it's important that the film stands to shoot someone in the city section or falls on its own terms. of support making a racist gesture. and what i liked about it — and i think you saw it in that shot kick it out said there were — was natalie portman does have one inundated with calls with reports of of those faces which can, you know, telegraph a huge amount of information. and when she is saying that thing about "i've looked down on the earth racist abuse from individuals. from above and now i can't" — manchester city are looking to i absolutely believe that identify those with the help of that's the case. plus, for me, that is the interest greater manchester police. they say of movies about space, is what it does to your inner self, they will issue lifetime bans to not your outer self. anyone found guilty of any racist that idea of escaping, you know, the earth and looking down, what kind of perspective behaviour. let‘s get the immediate that would give you. and that runs through a movie like the ninth configuration, reaction from the manchester united which i love, or a movie recently, manager. i've seen it on the video. this year, the swedish film aniara.
6:27 am
they're all basically about the same thing, it isjesse which is once you've been up there, manager. i've seen it on the video. it is jesse and manager. i've seen it on the video. how do you deal with life it isjesse and fred in there and the fella he must be ashamed of back down here? and the answer is i have no idea, himself. that is unacceptable and i and i thought the film did a pretty convincing job of letting me know how her character couldn't deal hope he would be watching any with life back down on earth. foot ball hope he would be watching any football any more. we seem to be also, it was a very, very evocative score byjeff russo, speaking about it an awful lot of and it looked — and originally, the part was earmarked this past six months, eight months. for reese witherspoon, which kind of reminded me of reese witherspoon's it is not something that anyone role in that film wild. oh, i loved wild! yeah, so did i. wants to do. even speaking about it yes, loved it! now, it is not a nice thing to speak i think that you might like this more than some other critics have done because, as you mentioned, about. the necessary departments it hasn't been warmly critically need to do the right things to stop received. i love it when you go out on a limb! it in the game because it is a big best out is a re—release. oh, my gosh, this is going to look gorgeous. negative of the sport, and the yeah, so umbrellas of cherbourg, and this is part of the bfi's musical season. country. it is not something that you want to see. very strong words so the bfu have been doing this musical season celebrating musicals. from marcus rashford. he had a tommy was out in cinemas recently, fantastic match. he spoke about we talked about that. yes, yes, yes! so this is the jacques demy from 1964, i think it is, having to talk about this for the and i've only ever seen it on the small screen. i've only ever seen on video, last six months or so. he was
6:28 am
for heaven's sake! on video! involved in that match for england before dvd, on video! so this is a real treat, the chance to be able to see away in bulgaria. we have had high umbrellas of cherbourg up on the big screen. of course, it was in the news profile issues in italy. a year to when la la land was back in cinemas because of course damien chazelle the day since raheem sterling was talked about how it had been racially abused at chelsea. the an influence on la la land. yes, yes. but lovely to be able to see it in the cinema. yes, glorious. fight goes on. ole gunnar solskjaer and dvd this week? i liked blinded by the light. are saying it has to be education to yeah, so did i! i like it. really warm—hearted core. yeah! fight this issue. thank you. and does not — i mean, there are some scenes we actually gasped out loud at the racism. i thought it was very... imean, it's... extraordinary. inspired by... ..terrifying. britain‘s longest—running rail based on a real—life franchise has made its last memoir by sardraz manzoor, journey after more than 22 who also worked on the screenplay, years of operating. directed by gurinder chadha, the virgin train service and it's the story about somebody arrived at wolverhampton growing up in luton and being just before midnight. it is being replaced in love with the songs by ava nti west coast. of bruce springsteen our business correspondent and encountering kind of, katie prescott explains what the changes will you know, 19805 racism, but finding an escape through mean for passengers. the songs of bruce springsteen, whose songs are, you know, are all about getting in cars stripped of its colours, one of the last virgin trains and driving to reservoirs! pulling out of euston station. and what i love about it is — i mean, i'm nota huge bruce springsteen fan, but i thought it brought those songs after a row over pensions liabilities, britain‘s longest to life in a way that made sense to me. running rail franchises and i do think you are absolutely right — that portrayal of that being replaced by avante west coast.
6:29 am
racism that the central character encounters. but it's funny and warm and there — being replaced by avanti west coast. and i confess, i cried more it‘s a joint venture between scotland based firstgroup than once in it. and the uk arm of italy‘s i thought it really worked as a sort of — main train operator. as an emotional piece. the main change that passengers i thought it was really terrific. at euston station will notice yeah, well, i laughed and cried. will be the change of branding, and then every time there was a scene of appalling racism, as virgin‘s red and white i was thinking "but this is the 19805 and this livery is stripped away was still going on!" i know, i know. and the staff wear new uniforms. but the people in those and that side of it blew me away. uniforms will stay the same, and in that way, it was as most of the crew, quite clever, i thought. drivers, and even senior it might look a bit frothy management are being kept on. on the outside but actually, all pre—booked tickets it was saying some very serious things. will still be valid. and is directed by gurinder chadha, who has a track record of, passengers will travel on 20 you know, dealing with serious new british—built trains, subjects but in a way which is kinda very, very accessible. which willjoin refurbished ones and i also think that on the avanti service. sarfraz manzoor‘s work what we‘re trying to do on it is really important because it is his story. is we are going to offer yes. greater value for money, we‘re going to increase and he has turned the story the number of trains that into something which is kind people are going to see, of accessible for a mainstream audience. and i imagine you weren't the number of seats will be far a huge springsteen — i never had you down greater in a couple of years. as a springsteen fan. and we want to encourage, not particularly, but i sort it‘s very important, of not fu55ed either way, the environmental footprint that we all put on the world, which is probably not we think rail can make allowed when it comes to springsteen, is it? a great impact on that. but i quite liked it! avanti is italian for "forward". i liked him in the end! did you come out of the movie — these passengers are hoping i came out of the singing, that the new franchise
6:30 am
you know, born to run. lives up to its name as the christmas holiday approaches. yeah, absolutely. thanks very much, mark. katie prescott, bbc news. thank you. see you next time. thank you. and that is it from here to tell us more about us from this week. enjoy your cinema—going. the impact of this is tony miles see you next time. from the modern railways magazine. bye— bye. i got the london to manchester piccadilly yesterday, one of the last trains. you could tell there was a bit of sadness in the voice of the train manager because my voice. he did the verse. all the passengers we re he did the verse. all the passengers were listening. it felt like a real moment. how significant is this change? it is been there for 22 hello, this is breakfast with babita sharma and roger john5on. yea rs, change? it is been there for 22 years, the longest running good morning. here's a summary of today's main franchise. for the people involved with that, even just changing the stories from bbc news. anthonyjoshua is heavyweight champion of the world again name on theirjacket is a big thing after a victory over andy ruinunior. six months on from one for them. the virgin brand has of the biggest shocks in boxing a lwa ys for them. the virgin brand has history, jo5hua regained his three always had quite a strong loyalty titles with a points victory in saudi arabia. from its employees. there will be he has become only the fourth heavyweight in the sport to win feeling quite a shock at seeing all
6:31 am
back his titles in a direct rematch. that disappear. the train managers, the way they saw off the final train, she was at the staff feel. the staff are all transferred over, the main political party leaders are continuing they all keep a job. interestingly, to push their election pledges to voters, as the campaign enters its final few days. they all keep a job. interestingly, the senior management have all been conservative leader borisjohnson says thursday's poll is "historic" taken over. in many ways, it isjust and a choice to "move a new paintjob on the trains, is to forwards" after brexit. the labour leaderjeremy corbyn says he has "the most ambitious plan do simple as that? not quite as to transform our country in decades". simple as that. the people taking our political correspondent susanna mendonca joins us now, susanna, final messages from party leaders this week — what are they saying? over said it is a well—run business so there was no need to change the people at the top. in one sense it sort of stays the same, initially it is the same trains and timetable. the big changes, as they begin to get their teeth into the business, so they are really hammering home the messages we have been hearing throughout this campaign. in terms then developing plans for hs2 on the assumption that is going ahead. they of borisjohnson, throughout this campaign. in terms of boris johnson, he throughout this campaign. in terms of borisjohnson, he is very much making that point that he thinks will take on the rolling stock of voting for the conservatives would be moving forward, rather than hs2, won‘t they? will take on the rolling stock of
6:32 am
moving backwards and he is talking hs2, won't they? that is part of the about shaping the future decades. contract. they had to partner with a then you havejeremy corbyn for the labour party saying that a vote for company that knows about super high—speed trains. they will need to labour party saying that a vote for labour would be a vote for hope and saying they would transform the country and create real change for people. tho5e decide what to do with the old country and create real change for people. those are the messages they are trying to put out. in terms of trains, the old railway. what have you read has been sent to you about what they are doing today, they will be travelling the country again. no new policy announcements, but the takeover and virgin‘s legacy? certainly more detail on their existing policies. with the you read has been sent to you about the takeover and virgin's legacy?m is an interesting one. some people will never like the virgin‘s brand, conservatives, they are focusing on their points —ba5ed immigration system, with the labour party some people together sir richard focusing on social care and the finding may put into that. the other branson thing. some people are political parties as well putting their messages acro55. we have the saying goodbye, is good riddance. liberal democrats talking about a other people are looking up the history of what they were able to rebalancing the regional economy, develop and bring forward. virgin putting more money into infrastructure outside london. then we have the snp, also talking about came in with this big plan for the how they see the future of scotland tilting trains and taking off 30 being at stake. really trying to put their messages forward. of course, minutes the dreamtime from london to their messages forward. of course, the final sunday papers before manchester. they have got huge extra polling day have got opinion polls
6:33 am
in them today. obviously they are numbers. a lot of people have been not all saying exactly the same interested in thatjourney. there thing. give us a snapshot of what is was a lot of conflict with the in those. in terms of the latest government when the west coast main line up it wasn‘t going smoothly. opinion polls we have seen today, the government tried to be a lot of they put the conservatives at 41, labour at 33. a lot of stuff, but virgin said due they put the conservatives at 41, labourat 33. in they put the conservatives at 41, labour at 33. in terms of the bbc average of different polls, it is must deliver this and help them to around 42—32, so ten points between account. have they transformed the landscape of travel? the competition them, really. but what we have been seeing in recent days as a narrowing from manchester to london, they used of the tory lead over labour. some to be air services to maybe four suggestion that labour is increasing different airports that were served its support base and, potentially, in london, now it is only heathrow at the expense of the liberal democrats. polls are variable. we thatis don't know whether or not that will in london, now it is only heathrow that is collected into longer journeys. people think of a morning mean on the election itself things will go that way. so everything too trip to london, they would expect to play for for the political parties in these final days of campaigning. be in manchester by lunchtime to do thank you very much indeed. we will something else. that is a whole speak to sirjohn kurtz, he will be different way of thinking. the on with us at 7:10. he is the growth of the youth travel is interesting because they are the next generation that will use it for
6:34 am
king... fiercely findable knowledge. business as business as well as we will put him on him on the spot leisure. the new company has a big to see how much we can read into the pulse —— he is the font of all challenge to follow. what can other knowledge. more than 30 people have been killed in a huge factory fire in delhi. it broke out in the early hours of this morning. rescue services say dozens companies learn from what virgin of workers were sleeping inside the building have done over 22 years? the at the time of the fire. attempts to bring huge bush fires in australia under control could be operators have said they want a new hampered due to rising temperatures caused by a heatwave. business to carry on being slightly temperatures are set to raise to 40 quirky, slightly out there with the degrees as hundred fires have formed a ‘mega blaze' — which covers over different ways it does the marketing and the promotion of the business. a thousand square miles and has been sending plumes of black clearly, they have seen something that. you can look at the railways across the uk. some people claim a smoke across sydney. lot on heritage, on the east because around 60,000 people spent the night they are talking about building on sleeping out in the cold they are talking about building on to help end homelessness. the heritage of that route, on the organisers of the world's big sleep west coast we had something saying out, which originally began in edinburgh three years ago, said 52 cities participated in this year's event. this is new, brash, quirky and the initiative hopes to raise around £38 million different. there are two different for homelessness charities. ways of doing it and will be interesting to see how those two different ways work—out. interesting to see how those two different ways work-out. ticket prices never come down. it is very
6:35 am
expensive. it is very expensive at it is 6:34. let us catch up with all peak times. we were talking to a guy the sport. we have already talked a bit about anthony joshua, from avanti peak times. we were talking to a guy from ava nti west peak times. we were talking to a guy from avanti west coast on friday. is the sport. we have already talked a bit about anthonyjoshua, olly. the other thing making the headlines is it likely that the ticketing will a racism row over the manchester derby, which is utterly depressing, change, will it be simplified? at to be honest. is something we have the end of the day, it is price for spoken about a lot, racism within a lot of people. the government football, discrimination, the nationally has said it wants to look antidiscrimination charity said they at the way ticketing is dealt with. we re antidiscrimination charity said they were inundated with calls around the so many journeys manchester derby yesterday, reports at the way ticketing is dealt with. so manyjourneys are locked into of racism. there was one that a lot other companies as well. everything has to change at the same time. they of racism. there was one that a lot of people picked up on stop can do some smaller things. what virgin did was it removed manchester united won the match. it was a fantastic match, but this restrictions on friday evenings so you could use off—peak tickets at overs ha d ows was a fantastic match, but this overshadows it stopped there was a flashpoint midway through the second peak times on friday, and it made half in which you see the brazilian them slightly more money. it was an forward from manchester united, experiment that they found that more fred, he has been hit by an object midway through the second half. he people were prepared to travel if they could travel more cheaply. would you be able to do that right was one of the players who spoke to through the week? there is an option brazilian media afterwards saying they have reported racism, notjust to try it, see what happens. there
6:36 am
him. it was picked up on tv as well. is some stuff there. the analysts keep pointing out that we have some talked to the referee afterwards. of the most expensive areas in the fa will be looking at theirs and europe, but also some of the authors of authorities as well. kick cheapest. do you rebalance that? it out say there is a year on year ray —— rise of dissemination in would people pay slightly more for the cheapest tickets to see the most football, be that racism or expensive fares come down abates? it homophobia. manchester city have said isa that they will issue a lifetime ban expensive fares come down abates? it is a risk, you don‘t want to to anyone found guilty of racist bankrupt the business. thank you so abuse after manchester united players said they were targeted during their derby win at the etihad yesterday. city are working with greater manchester police to identify any individuals concerned. much. thank you so much. here‘s susan with a look a video was widely circulated on social media that at this morning‘s weather. appeared to show a supporter making a racist gesture towards united players as they prepared to take a corner midway through the second half. good morning. no matter how you are the united player fred was also pelted with missiles, travelling in the next few days, and hit by an object. land, sea orair, the travelling in the next few days, land, sea or air, the weather will make that a rough ride. today, widespread gales, but some heavy rain to add to things, too. this big low— pressure
6:37 am
rain to add to things, too. this big low—pressure system is driving our weather today. lots of showers here we seem to be speaking about it an awful lot. you know, in this past already packing into the north and west of the uk. the wind is the big six months, eight months. and, you feature today. the more isobars you know, it's not something that anyone wa nts to see, basically the stronger the wind know, it's not something that anyone wants to do. even speaking about it is there are plenty of them today. now, it's not a nice thing to speak we are talking about widespread about. but, you know, the necessary gales, particularly for western departments need to do the right things to stop it in the game, coasts and areas adjacent to the irish sea. gusts up to 60 miles an hour today. plentiful showers and because, you know, that's a big negative of the sport and just of persistent rain for northern ireland and scotland for the afternoon. some the country, it's not something that you want to see. drier and brighter spells for i have seen it on the video, it is jesse and fred in there and the england. these are the strengths of fellow, he must be ashamed of the gusts in the afternoon. that is himself. that's unacceptable. and i not the peak of it. through the evening and overnight a band of hope he won't be watching any showers weaves its way south and foot ball hope he won't be watching any football anymore. just to compound a really difficult afternoon for city they also lost the match to united and that leaves east across the uk. gusts up to 70 them 14 points behind leaders liverpool. marcus rashford opened the scoring miles an hour, so potential to do for united from the penalty spot some damage and there will be some following a foul by bernardo silva.

6:46 am
izundu has more. forecast might. very stormy weather on the way right the way across the uk yesterday in particular through this evening and overnight. but through the week ahead as well, the idea is simple — widespread gales. some pretty stormy sleep rough and raise money seas to come, and just to add to the for the homeless. that‘s what hundreds did last night mix, why not have some heavy rain as in london‘s trafalgar square. an estimated 1,800 people had signed well? we saw some of that overnight. up, but in 50 cities around the front has now swept through. the world more than 60,000 people this looks back into the i have an were expected to sleep rough. at this time of year, area of low pressure, and that low as the temperature dropped is driving today's forecast. lots of and the entertainment came to an end, there was a gentle isobars here behind me channelling the wind in from the atlantic. it is coaxing into bed by dame helen mirren. a comparatively mild day, but that i‘m your bedtime story. wind is a definite feature for the they don't have a home. day to day. widespread gales, but there's no roof. particularly stormy around some of sleeping out in this cold weather, oui’ particularly stormy around some of our western coasts. some heavy and i have like a million thermals showers packing into scotland and on, is actually quite upsetting. northern ireland. further south, as i don't have the change to give them well, getting carried eastwards on something every day. it's doing something like this that the wind, some heavy, some thundery. sheltered eastern areas driest and almost makes you feel like you can help in some way or another. brightest. the wind really staring this is the fourth year things up, especially around the sir chris hoy has taken part. you get through it. coast. but gusting 50, 60 mph this it‘s not much fun. it‘s a pretty grim experience, afternoon around the west coast. but that‘s one night. that is set to peak at around 60 or only one night, and you get to go
6:47 am
70 mph as we head through the home to a warm shower, a warm house, get some food. evening into the small hours of monday. this band of showers goes through and the winds will be particularly squally as they bring so it‘s almost impossible to imagine how life must be on the streets. in some heavy rain. so the wind for 20—year—old j cocoa, this event mean so much. strong enough to do some damage, and she used to sleep on buses i suspect to cause some disruption, and in takeaway restaurants especially if you are travelling on when she was homeless as a teenager. monday morning. monday the pattern shifts a little bit. the logos it wasn‘t a comfortable eastwards. we are left with a stage of my life. it wasn‘t a place that northerly wind. it is lighter than i wanted to be in. today, but it is still strong, we nobody wants to be homeless, nobody wants to not know are talking around gales and for our what their next move north sea coast some stormy seas and is — in a bad way. the risk of some disruption on and it‘s a very vulnerable place to be in, you know, monday —— low goes. the day is much just having nowhere to stay. even though it was just one night, drier, it is brighter as well, but those who took part are hoping their efforts can help end chillier. the northerly wind will be homelessness for some forever. chi chi izundu, bbc news. adding a significant windshield to highs in the mid low figures for many. and then, monday into tuesday, here we go again. here we go another many. and then, monday into tuesday, here we go another area of low pressure winding up and coming in from the atlantic. perhaps the isobars not quite as tight as today but it is much of a much less. we're still talking about widespread gales and look at the blue spreading out
6:48 am
across the uk. rainfall areas at some point on tuesday and the chance for some snow for the higher ground of scotland. but it is milder again on tuesday. we flick around to a south—westerly wind. temperatures in double figures. that, though, doesn't last. there is that milder air tuesday into wednesday, back into some cold air for the air tuesday into wednesday, back into some cold airfor the middle of the week. low pressure swelling away to the north will mean a of sunny spells and scattered showers on wednesday. a chilly field on wednesday, and it feels like temperatures could come up for thursday and friday. but the rain will be coming down as well. so it is all happening, basically, in the next few days. we have just about everything and if you look closely i think you will find a think you will find everything and if you look closely i think you will find a kitchen sink. it looks a bit miserable, doesn't hello, this is breakfast with it. it's time for click now, babita sharma and rogerjohnson. and the team have been looking here‘s a summary of this at how social media is being used morning‘s main news... to abuse and intimidate mps. anthonyjoshua is heavyweight champion of the world again after a victory over andy ruinunior.
6:49 am
six months on from one of the biggest shocks in boxing history, joshua regained his three titles with a points victory in saudi arabia. he has become only the fourth heavyweight in the sport to win back his titles this thursday, the general election in an immediate rematch. will give more than 45 million people their chance to decide and we‘ll be getting reaction on the uk's future. live from saudi arabia is it the brexit election? is it the nhs election? in the next few minutes. the main political party leaders are continuing to push their election pledges is it an election that will show to voters, as the campaign new divisions that no longer lie enters its final few days. conservative leader borisjohnson along party lines? says thursday‘s poll is "historic" and a choice to "move forwards" after brexit. the labour leaderjeremy corbyn says we'll soon know. he has "the most ambitious please toughen up! plan to transform our amidst all of this, there's country in decades". the usual mudslinging the country goes to towards candidates. the polls on thursday. but with social media now in the mix, a lot of it has manchester city have pledged transferred to platforms like twitter. here at click, we decided to take to issue a lifetime ban to "anyone found guilty of racist abuse" a closer look at this outrage after manchester united players in the final few weeks said they were targeted of battle, and we sent during yesterday‘s derby carl miller to investigate. at the etihad stadium. i'm a traitor. i'm a vile creature. a lot of it is misogynistic. city said they were
6:50 am
"aware of a video circulating" online, which appears to show objects being thrown at united players, i've had death threats, with one supporter appearing to make i've had threats of violence to some a racist gesture. of my people here. the club has said it "operates a zero tolerance policy look, there have been moments regarding discrimination in which i've had anxiety attacks because of the level of threats. of any kind". being called everything from a lying more than 30 people have been killed dog to cheat to traitor or death in a huge factory fire threats — these are some in delhi. it broke out in the early of the 330,000 abusive tweets that hours of this morning prospective mps have been enduring in the city‘s old quarter. rescue services say dozens of workers were sleeping inside the building at the time in the run—up to the election. of the fire. but we wanted to really drill down to how much of this abuse around 60,000 people spent the night was happening, who was directed to, sleeping out in the cold the nature of the abuse itself to help end homelessness. and how it was all connected, organisers of the world‘s big sleep out, which originally began so we teamed up with the think tank in edinburgh three years ago, demos to produce exclusive said 52 cities participated new numbers for the scale and nature in this year‘s event. of online abuse in the run—up the initiative hopes to raise to this general election. around 38—million pounds this isjosh. for homelessness charities. those are the main he's trained an algorithm to sift through millions of tweets to identify those that are abusive stories this morning. and aimed at candidates who were previously mps before we will talk about the sport with parliament dissolved.
6:51 am
orly. obviously, we have been but the algorithm first needs to be talking about anthony joshua. trained by humans before it can sift orly. obviously, we have been talking about anthonyjoshua. a terrific achievement from here but through the millions of tweets, sojosh is teaching soila, also the manchester city story a researcher on click, making headlines and it is quite to help with this monumental task. crucial to this is how it decides depressing? yes, we will get to what's abusive versus what's just riyadh ina fair criticism — that's depressing? yes, we will get to riyadh in a moment, can we go there where personaljudgement inevitably comes in. now? start with manchester city. yes, we were talking in the last 20 what this gives us the opportunity to do is to say right — minutes also, because kick it out right now, in british have said they have reports week on democracy, that's an insult. the algorithm is about 70% accurate and only includes candidates running for re—election. week about this. but they breathed life into the city, denting manchester city‘s title hopes but but after just a few weeks, this racist incident midway through it revealed some startling results. around 334,000 tweets — the second half, just make united that's around 7% of the total players reported it to their referee received by candidates — were insulting. and their club. that's ten for every minute of the campaign, minute in, minute out. we‘ve heard how manchester city are working with the police after alleged racist abuse and a lot of the abuse from supporters at the etihad the mp5 received depended yesterday, but they are also 14 on their background, their gender, and their stance on brexit. what's causing this insulting points behind liverpool
6:52 am
behaviour to arise? well, some research suggests it's following defeat in the manchester derby — down to organised groups united winning 2—1. or disgruntled individuals — people who feel isolated from the mainstream but now, thanks to social media, can enter the public conversation marcus rashford opened the scoring for united from the penalty spot. anthony martial doubled that lead more easily than ever before. minutes later, to put them 2—up at the break. hate is a tactic used by various types of organisations nicolas otamendi‘s pulled one back and individuals. they are unified by a desire in the last ten minutes to set up a thrilling finale, for someone to respond to them — but the visitors held on for what was arguably and we have. ole gunnar solskjaer‘s most as a society, as individuals, impressive victory we have been responding, since taking charge. we have been engaging with this kind but another poor result of hate for far too long. and so, for the first time in this general election, from pep guardiola‘s champions. we've seen mainstream political actors using trolling techniques in order to amplify their they are so fast, so quick message on social media. and sometimes, when you lose the ball in some position, it is more difficult. and so, the three primary ones — but. . .we tried. the three main ones — we arrived in the final third were honesty, intelligence and this many, many, many times. we could not be more clear accusation of treachery. there and of course, when ijoined josh, i was surprised the counter, they can run. maybe a little bit more than usual, to learn that the main party leaders especially the first minutes, but in general the team weren't the biggest targets of abuse — at least as a proportion played really good. of all their mentions.
6:53 am
borisjohnson is right down at the bottom of this. and jeremy corbyn a shrug of the shoulders there. isn't there at all. this is not a one—party so city‘s hopes of retaining issue, is it? right. their title are fading, liverpooljust keep on winning, 3—0 at bournemouth this time this is much deeper thanjust a — and they have an 11 point lead over just single attacks second placed leicester on single people. one candidate who received an awful who play this afternoon. alex oxlade—chamberlain scored lot of this was iain duncan smith, the pick of the goals as you can see, right forjurgen klopp‘s side down the bottom. with naby keita and mo salah he was also sworn at a lot. also on the scoresheet... and if you are white, you are more likely to be sworn at and called a traitor than any other ethnicity really had to control the game, you look at. obviously bournemouth but of course, there are human beings on the other side of the screen, so i visited was more and more insecure, lost two players with an injury. the constituency of iain duncan it was for sure not a good smith, who told me his way of dealing with this day for bournemouth. is to never engage. and we had the chance to bring it over the line. the problem is sometimes the most used word in the dressing with elections and things, they actually feed this a bit more room at the moment is clean sheet. because they tell everybody, "actually, we all hate each other". clean sheet, finally. we don't. he was happy, wasn‘t he? how many i don't hate labour! sackingup we had in the last i have a lot of labour friends. fortnight or so? —— sackings. the problem with the internet is it takes that bit of the anger and then accelerates it in, because makes it immediate, instantaneous and it
6:54 am
gratifies, rather like a drug. but abuse, of course, everton sacked their manager a few isn't just something that happens online. days ago after their defeat and a day after i visited his office, it was vandalised. in the merseyside derby but temporary manager one of the most surprising findings duncan ferguson got off to a winning was that men overall tended to receive more abusive messages start as everton beat chelsea 3—1 at goodison park. than women on twitter — ferguson, a former everton player, although, of course, this doesn't mean that what they did was exuberant in his celebrations — receive was worse embracing one of the ball boys — as that win moved everton out or more threatening. of the relegation zone. i think the ball boy went for him, obviously, these are broad trends. the experience of every actually! candidate is gonna change. this is my favourite story this take, for example, angela smith. so she is being insulted a lot for her honesty and being called morning. a traitorfour times more and tottenham beat burnley 5—0 than the average candidate. at home, harry kane scored twice now, this could be because she's recently changed parties — but this was the pick of the goals, so she is now with perhaps goal of the season, the liberal democrats. she also voted against brexit. heung—min son picked up the ball at the edge of his area, and ran almost the full length of the pitch to score the third for spurs. this was against the majority in her former constituency. and she says she has faced a torrent of abuse, they are up to sixth. from anti—semitism to misogyny. there are four matches in the premier league — among them, second placed leicester in order to stay sane, travel to aston villa. i do not look at most of the abuse there‘ll be tributes paid there to one of villas greatest that's directed at me on twitter. managers ron saunders, i just don't think any individual can cope with that. who‘s died at the age of 87. he was the only manager to have and you can feel the anger behind taken charge of the three those tweets and the anger behind of the second city clubs,
6:55 am
the use of capital letters, aston villa, west brom the aggression, and ifind and birmingham. that really frightening. he guided villa to the first division title in 1981 and also won two league cups during his eight years at the club. there were wins for st mirren, so it seems that whether it's hibernian, livingston and hearts leaving your party or taking yesterday in the scottish premiership. a stance on that ultimate all eyes today though will be of all divisive issues, brexit, can make you a lot on hampden park as celtic of enemies online too. and rangers meet in the league cup next, i wanted to see whether the type of abuse candidates final. received also tended to differ based on their ethnicity. what we saw here is that steven gerrard is looking if you are a bme candidate, for his first trophy as rangers you are more likely to be manager while celtic coould win accused of being stupid, a tenth consecutive domestic trophy. basically, to be insulted for your intelligence. a good example of this not for me, it‘s for the team and the players, really. if we win it then it ticks is david lammy, who is insulted another box for my career, for his honesty which would be nice, but i‘m hopeful, because it is and his intelligence. on the team, the players, you know putting on a performance he's also sworn at an awful lot. to get over the line. earlier in the campaign, david lammy tweeted about a report he'd overseen, the lammy review, into the disproportionate number of black and ethnic minorities in the prison system. and even he, no stranger to online back to the main story of the day, abuse, was taken aback by the response. really... i was staggered at the level so anthonyjoshua joins an elite of abuse that i received. list of fighters who‘ve reclaimed that's an indication ofjust how their world heavyweight titles.
6:56 am
toxic things have become. he beat andy ruiz most of the abusive tweets directed at me are really pushing deeply he beat andy ruinnr in a rematch. it went the distance in saudi racist stereotypical tropes. they're tropes about being stupid. they're tropes about being lazy. arabia. they're tropes that let‘s cross live now to riyadh, ade adedoyin was at the fight for us last night. involve the n word. injune we had that result that stunned not just joshua injune we had that result that stunned not justjoshua but injune we had that result that stunned notjustjoshua but the boxing world. he had a game plan so what does the research last night, it may not have been spectacular but it did the job? yes, actually tell us? well, there's a scale, of course — it was a brilliant performance from anthonyjoshua last night physically ten online insults of every minute of every day of the campaign. and mentally. he wasn‘tjust these insults cut across fighting to regain the heavyweight the political divide, but they're also determined title but preserve his career. by what a candidate says remember, he had to get over the and who they are. mental hurdle of getting in the ring and for sure, it's notjust against the guy who put him down happening on twitter and it's not four times. but it was perfect, just happening to politicians. so i think one of the big really. he came in light for the questions we now have is, as politics, with each passing day, fight, and he was light on his feet. becomes more digital, how can we make it less angry? he kept andy ruiz fight, and he was light on his feet. he kept andy ruinnr at bay with his long jab, using his height and reach advantage. it was a disciplined and professional performance but he said in the press earlier this year, conference he had to curb his

amazon web services ran getit — natural instinct to knock andy ruiz a kids' competition to design an app to solve a problem. jnr out. there were times i looked the prize — bringing it to fruition. into his eyes and wanted to put my fist through his head but this is after stiff competition from various boxing. i have to win for myself and mental health and well—being show people that this is the sweet science of the sport. i had my game concepts, this lot triumphed with their web app to transcribe plan and my coaches had a great school lessons for the deaf and hard of hearing. strategy. i trusted plan and my coaches had a great strategy. itrusted in a few weeks after their win, plan and my coaches had a great strategy. i trusted in them and i've come here to the team's school, followed it through. i'm sure that bishop's stortford college prep, he will put a positive spin on 2019 to find out a little bit more about what they're creating. as being a learning experience, coming out of it has a better fighter and all of that. but the quest to unify the heavyweight so this is our connect hearo app division is now back on. how will he and this is how it would work if you were using it. do that? is it likely, too? that is the app connects to a teacher's phone, and the teacher has the fight we all want to see, a bout a microphone, so it will display what the teacher is speaking in real—time on the student's phone, between deontay wilder and anthony so it will them learn in class joshua. we are told that his next and obviously understand fight will be a rematch between the lesson more. tyson fury, that will happen on the now, ibby, could you tell me 22nd of he had vary, that‘s the date about your hearing issues and how this, hopefully, will help? we keep hearing. as far as anthony so i have 60% hearing loss
6:58 am
joshuais and if you focus on something, we keep hearing. as far as anthony joshua is concerned, he will have you get a lot of background noise. some mandatory obligations but so with this app, obviously long—term he will be focusing on a because it connects to your phone, you don't have to worry bout against either one of those two about the background noise, hopefully, and just be able to focus men. ruiz will not feature in his on the person speaking. how much of an issue do you find future, he said in the press listening in the classroom? conference he wanted a trilogy. he i find it particularly hard if, said he partied and ate too much, like, you're sitting at the front and there are people behind you talking, and you're trying focus did not listen to his trainer or on the teacher because often, coach and he blew a big opportunity you just pick up the background noise. and essentially lost the heavyweight and of course, for lip championship in the world at the reading, they need to be facing your direction. nightclub and the dinner table and yeah. he will regret that for the rest of there's also the issue of kids regularly needing hearing aids his life. but he is a much richer re—moulded as they grow. so how did they get started with creating the app? man, as is anthonyjoshua, a huge we looked through the things that we had never done. purse to put that fight on. a lot of we thought to ourselves how we could actually put it together human rights groups are not happy a so it would be something that works and not a gimmick. fight of this magnitude, or any sort so after we found our target audience and everything, of international sporting event we sent the information over should be held in saudi arabia. how to amazon, whojudged it, and then the competition started. do you think the event went on the night? did it deliver, as a sporting spectacle? was the atmosphere different? it was. the build-up was the competition started, and you won! how did that feel when you won? different. it was not as lively as i it felt amazing.

like, no—one could believe it. have seen compared to fights in the us or london, capital cities. there we re us or london, capital cities. there were a lot of people in traditional wear but there were women there, five to ten years ago perhaps you would not have seen that here in when ready, the app will be open saudi arabia. the atmosphere was source, so it will be available quite quiet on the undercard fights. to other schools. but the process so far — much like creating any tech — it became lively during the main has come with its challenges. it's just a bit disappointing fight. anthony joshua that it's not coming up it became lively during the main fight. anthonyjoshua has cut through over here. a lot of people perfect first time. that's an unrealistic standard, chanting his name is. locals have but it's just a bit disappointing to know that, like, there's a lot said that they would like to see him more work to be done on it. fight again in this region of the this is part of a bigger picture — world. his career is on track, he the direction we push kids in in an ever—changing world. has many options and long—term, what there's a big misnomer, ifeel, about artificial intelligence. we do want to see is a unification when they — everybody talks about al, but they don't actually bout against deontay wilder or a explain to the youngsters what it actually means. ai is based on data — huge domestic matchup against tyson fury. who knows, maybe at wembley it's all that is, its data that's been built up. stadium. that would fill a 90,000 and they can take — seater stadium. plenty to look they can create things from data. that is a skill set which they use forward to in 2020, perhaps? thank in any walk of life, going forward. you very much indeed. and that's it from the shortcut of click for this week. the full—length version is up on iplayer. both leinster and northampton you can watch it right now. were unbeaten in the champions cup

anthonyjoshua knew his career the question is why. and credibility were on the line. opponent andy ruinunior, catherine king has started a research project to intent on proving his shock victory answer that question. in theirfirst meeting earlier this year was no fluke. it‘s a completely different but after cutting the mexican experience to everyday life. inside the first round, you walk into that chapel, a slimmed down joshua never looked back. you switch your phone off, using his jab to expertly control the rounds and constant movement it‘s candlelit, you hear to keep his distance from his much heavier rival. it wasn‘t a classic. often unaccompanied voices. the fight never turning into the explosive slugfest that saw ruiz stun the boxing world back in june. instead, a far more composed so, i‘lljust start joshua kept to his plan, so, i‘ll just start the so, i‘lljust start the film... racking up the points, and gaining revenge with a unanimous victory. the british fighter able to celebrate becoming just the fourth heavyweight in history to regain his world title at the first attempt. she‘s using a virtual reality recording of evensong and is monitoring people‘s responses during the service. tonight was just about winning my key research question was: what is actually happening and trusting my process. in people‘s minds and their bodies i know maybe i could have done more when they‘re in a choral at times, but sometimes evensong service? i can see the beautiful simplicity is genius. stained glass windows, the sound of the choir. so the cycle of thoughts, feelings, and that was the motto — and emotions that some people keep it simple ‘cause it‘s describe when they‘re in this service is very similar going to lead to to doing a meditation. a genius performance.

main fire front. so it is, as we and now, you're presenting as a dancer, and i think say, this military style strategic that is truly remarkable. planning that the authorities here are using to try to protect firstly technically, was it perfect? life and also property. fatigue is no, byfar. also setting in among some of these but you gave such honesty, firefighters. many of them are depth of feeling to what you did. volunteers. and we have seen it really is impossible reinforcements, as far away as not to be involved. canada, the united states, new zealand. so in new south wales there are about 100 fires burning. to the we‘re joined now by showbiz broadcaster kevin hughes. north, in queensland, dozens of blazes there. and in sydney, as you hejoins us from say, that horrible black smoky haze he joins us from the cardiff newsroom this morning. that has blanketed sydney for quite kevin, it‘s all to play a few days is also resulting in the for now isn‘t it? yes. after last night, an beach, some of the water at the electrifying and emotionally charged beach, some of the water at the beach has been blackened by that semifinal. everyone having to up ash. australians are preparing for what promises to be a very hot, dry, their game. two dances from the four and brutal summer. thank you very couples last night. a great evening much. phil mercer reporting live in particularfor kelvin from sydney this morning. couples last night. a great evening in particular for kelvin and couples last night. a great evening in particularfor kelvin and oti. they finally secured the magic 40, around 60,000 people spent the night sleeping out in the cold

to help end homelessness. with four tens. kelvin had been organisers of honest and admitted that he the world‘s big sleep out, which originally began struggled to learn both routines in edinburgh three years ago, said 52 cities participated during the week. it was a in this year‘s event. sensational performance from him and the initiative hopes to raise around £38 million oti last night. and it was a great for homelessness charities. night for emma and anton. there is a lot of momentum to get them through with less than a week to the final. anton has never made to the general election the papers unsurprisingly are full of polls the final. it is amazing. we are this morning speculating on the result. i can‘t believe it‘s less than a watching these pictures, he came out with that nice line that we heard, he had waited 15 years to do a dance week! the newspapers full of opinion like that on strictly. he has been ona polls speculating on what might be. like that on strictly. he has been on a journey like everyone else. he has done the show for so long. a lot of people would like to seem succeed? and i think you will. he someone who can help us make sense of them is professor has a wonderful partner in emma. of ppolitics, sirjohn curtice, they had wonderful dances last whojoins us now from our london newsroom. night. they did well on the is an exciting morning in the world leaderboard but it was kelvin and of opinion polls. the message nothing very much has changed. we oti who finished top last night with have had five polls come out of the a score of 77. i think it will be a weekend, five conventional bowls, great narrative and a great moment if anton gets to reach the final and
7:14 am
they, between them, suggest the tories are still ten points ahead. have a special moment. also doing maybe just eased slightly by a very well last night was karim and point. but that is it. the truth is, if that kind of lead were to appear amy. sweet caroline blasting out last night before the boxing final in the ballot boxes, then boris johnson should get a reasonably but we got to hear it is tricky. the co mforta ble johnson should get a reasonably comfortable majority, around 40—50 judges were full of praise for his seats, even a couple of more technicality and musicality. but i complicated exercises being run on think shelley had a problem with his behalf of organisations campaigning for tactical voting try to get left at one point, she warned him people to vote against borisjohnson that he may want to hit the gym and stop they also suggest the tories heading for around 344, 345 seats. practices lifts. and you mentioned they are trying to persuade people it is sufficiently close that maybe kelvin earlier, he was a last—minute things could change. at the moment, call—up. he was not in the original the prime minister looking good poll line—up but now he could go all the position. even in scotland this morning there is quite good news, way? it is amazing to think, he opinion polls suggest the admitted last week that he had conservatives, almost back up to the forgotten he wasn‘t even meant to be 2996 on this series this year but there conservatives, almost back up to the 29% they got two years ago, with the isa on this series this year but there is a lot of public support for him. snp perhaps not advancing as other polls suggest. at the moment, at he has demonstrated that he deserves this place on the show and i think least, it looks as though the prime he deserves a place in the final. a minister ought to make it, but of
7:15 am
course one thing we always know is lot of love for chris ramsey as that polls are not always right. and well. he has admitted he is not a secondly there is variation in these bowls. onepoll says the tories are dancer. he has never danced to 15 points ahead, in which case the anything and if music came on, he prime minister would be heading for a landslide. another says it is only refused to move his body but the eight, and that eight points we begin to ask ourselves, if it were judges praised that he has done that this series and he has gone from to slip much more, maybe things could still turn out differently on zero to hero in the public‘s eyes thursday. having interviewed you a number of times over the years, my but i do think he is at risk favourite part of any general tonight. they could miss out on that election is talking to you and you final spot. it comes down to the are still so enthused by it, all the best dancers, as it should. but, time, which is wonderful to see. but this is me thinking off the top of we keep asking questions about polls my head, that is strictly coming to and how much we should pay attention to them. the end of its shelf life, or does it still have that same enduring as far as polls are concerned, my appeal that it has had all these view as they should be taken but not yea rs ? appeal that it has had all these inhaled. they do tell us a great years? i think it still has that deal. what do today‘s polls confirm enduring appeal, it has done has been crucial in this campaign is incredibly well with ratings, other shows on television are dipping in the way in which the conservative party has been able to concentrate the ratings but they hold their own. the leave vote behind them. we have it isa

the ratings but they hold their own. it is a family favourite. millions will be tuning into the final next about 70% of leave voters saying they are going to vote for the week. it will be intriguing. the conservatives as well. on the other nation will go to the polls not once side, the remain side of the brexit but twice next week! it is all about argument, the vote is much more the glitter ball. and of course we get the christmas day special. i was divided. only about half of people speaking to my radio colleague mark who voted remain are going to vote labour, the liberal democrats wright about the christmas day getting nearly a quarter of them. strictly and he said it will be whatever the exact state of the horse race, that information is extra special. he is back on the crucial to understanding the likely show this year. and having asked you outcome of this election. boris johnson‘s ability to win this about strictly, all of these reality election won‘t be because necessarily we have a clear majority shows, they have been such a staple pa rt shows, they have been such a staple part of the television offering now, in favour of leaving. the polls still don‘t find that, but rather it for getting on for a couple of is the differential concentration of decades. are the viewers still leave and remain voters that makes a difference. you can argue about hungry for reality television, like whether polls are exactly right but you cannot ignore that message about i must, love island, like they the structure of the relationship between how we voted three years ago a lwa ys i must, love island, like they in the eu referendum and what we say always work? they like seeing we‘re going to do now. otherwise, more the message clearly is the celebrities endure tasks and see tories are favourites. they are in them 24/7. that format still works

olive celebrated her birthday with over 300 cards because the care home she was in were a bit upset on her 100th when she didn't get many cards, so they put out an appeal for people to send birthday cards and she got such a massive response to strangers. apparently she was quite overwhelmed. she is in great yarmouth in norfolk, it says here. olive also had a go on a drum kit on the day. 104 year old rocker. well done, olive. just a quick one, i will ask because i know you know this story. how much do you think the top earning hollywood dog gets. dog? i don‘t know, probably some ridiculous amount of money. £5 million? go on. let'sjust show everybody the extent of the jack russell‘s earning power. $700 ——
7:26 am
£700 million. so this is a breed of dog rather than an individual dog. yes, i should dog rather than an individual dog. yes, ishould have dog rather than an individual dog. yes, i should have said that. maybe we can see if it goes on to say... you picked this out. so this is the popularity of different types of dogs, and which one sort of brings in the most money for hollywood, and in effect it is the good old jack russell, which i think is much maligned and perhaps not one of the most popular ones, although i do love a jack russell myself. you have the golden retriever in second, the great dean and third, the dalmatian only comes in fourth and that is one of the biggest names, obviously, in terms of stories. there are 101 of them. they put the success of the jack russell down to the secret, secret life of pets. and i do are you apology before people start messaging and, because i did say which particular dog. but we should find out, shouldn‘t we? which particular dog. but we should find out, shouldn't we? now, listen, you picked out a story about gps. we will save this for the next hour because we only have a few seconds

7:28 am
7:29 am
hello. this is breakfast with babita sharma and rogerjohnson. good morning. here‘s a summary of today‘s main stories from bbc news. anthonyjoshua is heavyweight champion of the world again after a victory over andy ruinunior. six months on from one of the biggest shocks in boxing history, joshua regained his three titles with a points victory in saudi arabia. he has become only the fourth heavyweight in the sport to win back his titles in an immediate rematch. olly will be here shortly to talk us through the highlights of the night. and through the highlights of the night. the possibility fight and the possibility of a potential fight with that fighter, andy ruiz, sometime in the future, maybe, maybe not. the main political party leaders are continuing to push their election pledges to voters, as the campaign enters its final few days. conservative leader borisjohnson says thursday‘s poll is "historic" and a choice to "move forwards" after brexit. the labour leaderjeremy corbyn says he has "the most ambitious plan to transform our country in decades". the country goes to
7:30 am
the polls on thursday. manchester city have pledged to issue a lifetime ban to "anyone found guilty of racist abuse" after manchester united players said they were targeted during yesterday‘s derby at the etihad stadium. city said they were "aware of a video circulating" online, which appears to show objects being thrown at united players, with one supporter appearing to make a racist gesture. the club has said it "operates a zero tolerance policy regarding discrimination of any kind". more than 30 people have been killed in a huge factory fire in delhi. it broke out in the early hours of this morning in the city‘s old quarter. rescue services say dozens of workers were sleeping inside the building at the time of the fire. around 60,000 people spent the night sleeping out in the cold to help end homelessness. organisers of the world‘s big sleep out, which originally began in edinburgh three years ago, said 52 cities participated in this year‘s event. the initiative hopes to raise around £38 million for homelessness charities.
7:31 am
shall be look at this boort? let's look at the sport. —— the sport. as long as you are nice to me. they keep saying ruiz instead of ruiz. it is as in louise. but he then did not expect me to say louise.” is as in louise. but he then did not expect me to say louise. i am sure andy ruiz expect me to say louise. i am sure andy ruinunior will not mind. let us andy ruinunior will not mind. let us look at the picture. that sums it up. look how long his arm looks, anthonyjoshua. that up. look how long his arm looks, anthony joshua. that is up. look how long his arm looks, anthonyjoshua. that is pretty much how he won the fight, that rightjab that just kept ruiz how he won the fight, that rightjab thatjust kept ruiz away how he won the fight, that rightjab that just kept ruiz away from how he won the fight, that rightjab thatjust kept ruiz away from him and, lo and behold, anthonyjoshua, after six months of soul—searching, is world champion again and that
7:32 am
quest for unifying the division is back on. we will talk about that. good morning to you. anthonyjoshua has his belts back, getting his revenge with victory over andy ruinunior, but it went the distance in saudi arabia. let‘s head live now to riyadh, ade adedoyin is there. it was clear thatjoshua wasn‘t going to make the same mistakes as six months ago in new york, and he just kept ruiz at arm‘s length. yeah, it was a brilliant performance by anthonyjoshua, both physically and mentally. he went into the fight underan offa and mentally. he went into the fight under an off a lot of pressure. it wasn‘t just regaining under an off a lot of pressure. it wasn‘tjust regaining the heavyweight title, but also saving his career, because defeat would have left him in a very bad place. is also the mental of things. getting over what happened in new york six months ago. a lot of fighters would have struggled with
7:33 am
that, because sometimes defeats like that, because sometimes defeats like that live mental scales. people also said that he quit. andy ruiz said that in the buildup, thatjoshua could not take the punishment inflicted on him. and he fought to a very disciplined gameplan. he came in later than he normally does, four stone, the latest he had been in five years. he was light on his feet, he used his height and advantage to keep ruiz on the back. it was a relative performance. anthonyjoshua is it was a relative performance. anthony joshua is back it was a relative performance. anthonyjoshua is back in business. what next for him, he has got his three major belts back, but obviously it is just unifying the division. we know how difficult that will be. it is going to take -- he is going to take some time away before getting back in the gym. he has a mandatory defences but longer term we will be thinking about a fight against beyonce —— deontay wilder. we have told the 22nd of february is when he will meet tyson fury. maybe late in the summer or in
7:34 am
the we will see that bowed. they spoke to fans yesterday after the fight and they were saying that is the fight they want to see, a unification bout. that is the pressure anthonyjoshua went in with our side. paddy blown it all the fights —— talk of a big—money fight against either would have gone out the window. his only the fourth in heavyweight history to win an immediate rematch. patterson did, lewis lennox did it, marmot ali did it. usually when you lose you need an interim fight to iron out the technical flaws and get your confidence back and get back to winning ways. he took a gamble and went straight back in there and he delivered. just very quickly, lots of questions asked of the rights and wrongs of actually holding this fight in saudi arabia. did it deliver as an event, as a spectacle? it was sold out. the atmosphere was lively, not raucous, some of the underfire is lively, not raucous, some of the under fire is the crowd were very quiet. when anthonyjoshua got in the ring and livened up. pick up
7:35 am
three. he is a global star and people bought into him. lots of people bought into him. lots of people chanting his name and singing his name afterwards. the crowd appreciated the spectacle. spoke to some locals who said they would love to have anthonyjoshua back fighting in saudi arabia again. i should tell you quickly about andy ruiz, his press co nfe re nce was you quickly about andy ruiz, his press conference was hilarious. that may be a party to too much, ate a bit too much, i didn‘t listen to my coach and my dad. i would like to do a trilogy, this time my promise i would train very hard. we missed the vote. u nfortu nately, would train very hard. we missed the vote. unfortunately, he will go down like the likes of buster douglas and leon spinks, who won the heavyweight title and then lost it on the dinner table and in the nightclub.” title and then lost it on the dinner table and in the nightclub. i don't think there is any maybe about it. he did enjoy the world titles while he had them. ade adedoyin come alive. let us get more from former lightweight world champion anthony crolla. won four purists. give us a greater appreciation of
7:36 am
what anthonyjoshua was going through and what was at stake. mentally can only imagine the pressure he was under, huge expectation. we have seen over the past few years that he is one of the biggest sporting stars on the planet. we have that in any sport. for him to deal with that and for him to fight such a discipline fight, which he did and it wasn‘t the thrills and spills of the first fight, the ups and downs, he boxed the perfect fight. he would have been so pleased with it. that took a lot of discipline to do that. now he moves on and these huge fights are still on the table. six months. would he think about this year as being kind of a wasted year after what happened in new york? he is 30 now, the clock starts to check or is he still a young man? the clock is a lwa ys he still a young man? the clock is always ticking, isn‘t it? certainly wouldn‘t say it is wasted. it was a
7:37 am
very educational year. they say about learning and defeat. that is what he has done. he has shown a different side to his game. and i think when you are involved in an event like last night you could never say it‘s wasted. it was a bit of the unknown about sporting events, certainly in boxing, nothing on that scale. you just mentioned other fights potentially there on the table, deontay wilder, tyson fury, unifying the heavyweight division is the holy grail, i guess. without a doubt. it doesn‘t happen very often. they are the fights, the fights that uk fans would hope to see. hopefully the politics can be put aside and that can happen, if not with deontay wilder. he has a manager put against him against a fantastic fighter. you would imagine it would be one of those three fighters, all three are very tough and all three are fights where anthonyjoshua might not even be
7:38 am
favourite. some of them are fights he might go in as the underdog. they are huge fights. and where they will ta ke are huge fights. and where they will take place and what they do know, they would be in front of a huge crowd. you have been there before in terms of having to face defeat and then go back to an opponent and build yourself up to a fight. talk me through what you think has been so impressive about the way that anthonyjoshua has tackled this fight in particular. what i think is so impressive as not having the fight in between. he has gone straight back in there. that shows big character. because he lost badly in new york, he lost pretty convincingly. there were a lot of people who ridiculed him because of the body shape of his opponent compared to himself. and he com pletely compared to himself. and he completely changed his tactics, like he has shown discipline that he has never shown before, he has shown a new side to his game. like i said, he did all that. a lot of people
7:39 am
said if he didn‘t win last night that was the end for anthonyjoshua. it is crazy considering he has lost to one person. how is it about getting yourself mentally... mentally it is so important. you must have been feeling the pressure. how he handled it and how we performed you can only take your hat off to him. he was really her six month ago as well. he said he was mentally scarred by that. it was a huge purse on offer. astonishing. 60 million. and andy ruiz got ten. there is a lot of money. you would ta ke there is a lot of money. you would take that to lose, wouldn‘t you? going to places like saudi arabia, the rights and wrongs, we talked about human rights issues, as sportsmen do you feel a social responsibility as well when you take your sport to different places?” think you do come here, you want to carry yourself well. while i was over there, in saudi arabia last year, engenderfor a over there, in saudi arabia last year, engender for a fight, over there, in saudi arabia last year, engenderfora fight, and i can only say how we were treated,
7:40 am
and that was really well. the atmosphere is different. for the main event, it becomes different. whether we will see more sporting events heading that way, it looks that way, it looks that way, so hopefully everyone is treated right. anthony, thank you. we‘ve heard how manchester city are working with the police after alleged racist abuse from supporters at the etihad yesterday, but they are also 14 poinst behind liverpool following defeat in the manchester derby — united winning 2—1 marcus rashford opened the scoring for united from the penalty spot following a foul by bernardo silva. anthony martial doubled that lead minutes later, although nicolas otamendi‘s late reply set up a thrilling finale, the visitors held on for what was arguably ole gunnar solskjaer‘s most impressive victory since taking charge. 01:40:45,597 --> 2147483052:27:07,513 but another poor result 2147483052:27:07,513 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 from pep guardiola‘s champions.
