this is the w.'s line from berlin where briggs out in the back it's all systems go for boris johnson and his conservatives after they secured a stunning victory in the u.k. election back in downing street mr johnson have this message for voters and we will work round the clock to repay your trust and to deliver on your priorities with a parliament that works for you. all there is relief in europe that the uncertainty over breaks it is now over leaders have gathered in brussels to push ahead with
5:01 pm
a green deal to make the e.u. carbon neutral by the year 2050 and 3 years for the soldiers who recovered the bodies of those killed in a volcanic eruption on new zealand's for carly island family and friends have held a traditional maori blessing at sea for those who died plus a way of life threatened by global warming our deadly disease is threatening to wipe out siberia as a reindeer herds. only like thank you so much for your company everyone well it was dubbed the brig's it election and now the british prime minister boards johnson says he has been given the green light to take the u.k. out of the european union well johnson's conservatives power to a landslide victory being more than 3 years of deadlock and a bitter wrangling to. and the opposition labor party suffered
5:02 pm
a humiliating collapse and their wipe out in the heartland in terms of numbers the conservatives have won a huge majority far exceeding the 326 seats that they needed to hold the balance of power there were big losses for labor and the scottish nationalist party however made strong gains in the north of the most part of the united kingdom. all right let's get you so much more about what this all means. is standing right outside number 10 downing street to show that we heard moments ago from prime minister boris johnson he delivered his acceptance speech right behind you can you tell us a little bit more about that what did he say well a very statesman like speech something we haven't heard from boris johnson so far in his 1st few months as prime minister he rather divided the country then brought it back together and he also ran
5:03 pm
a very divisive campaign now when he came out of number 10 just a little while ago he tried to reach out he addressed those who voted for him and those who didn't vote for him and called for for a national unity he said he would make huge investments into the public services and the country he said he would deliver on his promise to deliver breakfast to have the u.k. leave the european union and he said it was a time for healing the country so shortly before christmas let's listen in and as we work together with the e.u. as friends and so bring equals in tackling climate change and terrorism in building academic and so on to the cooperation redoubling i'll trade you relationship i frankly urge everyone on either side of. the 3 is through nokia's through an increasingly average argument. i
5:04 pm
urge everyone to find closure and to let the healing begin let the healing begin showed how does he plan to do that what will be mr boris johnson's main priorities in the coming days and weeks. well 1st of all brick said he ran on a very simple plan he said he delivered by the end of january and that is what he is going to do now as early as next week parliament sitting again and he will ask for parliament's approval for with the majority that he now has to approve the withdrawal the agreement that he negotiated with the european union and that is the 1st step for the u.k. to leave the european union at the end of january now that is one so if the u.k. leaves the european union at the end of january which is quite certain at this point then face to will start which is being negotiated on future trade relations
5:05 pm
and security relations and all those kinds of issues and that will be a lot more complicated than what we've seen so far so boris johnson really has a challenge there ahead of him and it's a simple message let's get bricks it will not be as simple in the in the end the reality is much more complicated so busy 2020 head but he also has of course other priorities and those domestic on the domestic agenda he has said goodbye of the conservative governments of the pasta he wants to invest into the communities that have been deprived off investment and money and and invest money into public services such as the national health service right let's talk a little bit about this has been such a divisive campaign charlotte the country is without question divided i mean we've heard his acceptance speech he wants to bring the country back together. is he
5:06 pm
going to be presiding over a divide united kingdom. well he really is i mean that is the big challenge his hope is that one's breck that is off the table that the nation can focus on other issues again and unite behind that but of course with this election he's facing really new challenges we see in the scottish national party making huge gains and calling for a 2nd independence referendum off scotland because the majority of voters in scotland wants to remain in the european union so we could see quite a challenge there for him coming up and we have the same issue in northern ireland so he and his time as prime minister in the next 5 years will be presiding over a very divided nation on all fronts and of course that will remain an issue because many of the voters did not vote for him and still want the u.k.
5:07 pm
to remain in the european union shop pos reporting from downing street right outside number 10 and i want to pause just for viewers for the quality of the picture what we got the gist of your reporting and we greatly appreciate it now world leaders have been reacting to boris johnson's victory as u.s. president donald trump said britain and the united states would now be free to strike which he called a massive new trade deal after that german chancellor angela merkel just said this in response. i would like to take this opportunity to congratulate boris johnson on his outstanding election victory. and us fiercely the withdrawal agreement can be passed by both the british and the european sides and we can then turn to the negotiations which no don't have it difficult enough funding not in the future lation shit like the u.k. . put on your number long. and that was
5:08 pm
a chance are speaking in brussels because european union leaders are holding a summit at the moment and of course have been watching the election results of the u.k. and what it means for they want to take you now to do have these barstools burch if a max hoffman who is there at the summit venue max. you are paying leaders as keen as mr bott as mr boris johnson to get brags that done. the german chancellor angela merkel in her closing press conference put it this way everybody was kind of relieved that somebody had a clear majority in this case of course boris johnson because this means you don't have a hung parliament and this means the risk of having a no deal bragg's it is basically eliminated and the no deal brags it was what everybody here in the e.u. feared because it would have that done huge damage to the e.u. economy but 1st and foremost to the u.k. economy that doesn't mean that some people were disappointed when the results came up on the screens here last night at this summit venue you had
5:09 pm
a lot of those for example from the journalists watching because some of them were still hoping that there was a way to keep the u.k. in the european union that way now seems blocked and of course you can imagine and especially the social democrats here in brussels were very disappointed with the result now brigs it does seem to be inevitable max mr johnson has a mandate to make good on his promise that he ran on. to leave the e.u. by the end of generate what he doesn't control as you know is negotiations with the e.u. what kind of timeline are we looking at from your vantage point. if you ask the diplomats that will be in charge of negotiating this free trade agreement they almost unilaterally say now comes the hard part what we had so far was the easy part and if you look at the timelines of free trade agreements usually that you strikes with other countries or regions it takes years sometimes decades and the timeline now is
5:10 pm
to get in somebody's end of next year ok they have the option to extend that period for another year they would have to decide on that in june so fairly early but still 2 years is very little time very competitive and we'll have to see whether this actually works out and just just to tell you know this was not the only problem they discussed here you know that they have this very ambitious goal of getting the e.u. climate neutral by 2050 that actually was the main discussion at this you summit and we wanted to know more about that from the finnish prime minister the finnish prime minister by the way very interesting person she's 30 fewer years old which makes her the youngest currently the youngest prime minister in the world this was her 1st summer she got elected in december and our correspondent teri schultz caught up with her to talk about climate. let's talk about the issues on climate change this is a big deal for finland you yourself have more ambitious climate targets than the e.u. was even discussing and you were not able to bring poland on board completely is
5:11 pm
that a disappointment and do you worry that there are still really tough talks ahead that may shuttle the whole thing i'm sure that there will be hard talks ahead but i'm very happy that we could reach this common goal that europe will become climate neutral by 2050 this is the issue that we have been making the decision so i'm very happy that we now have a goal that we are serious about we all know that we have to do more and we have to do it faster it's about our children's future. about future generations but i'm very happy about the steps forward that we made last night and you're not worried that poland will not come on board at all and can't count the goals be achieved if they don't i hope i'm hopeful that next summer also. poland will be on board on this but we have made and reach the goal together we have all
5:12 pm
agreed that europe will become climate neutral by 2050 it's now about the implementation how different countries how different member states are implementing this go on this discussion will continue next spring max the devil is in the details how difficult will it be to get all e.u. member states on board this very ambitious climate plan. as we understand the last remaining opponent here was poland and that's because poland has the most to lose structurally from the whole operation i believe that 80 percent of the energy mix of poland is coal so you can see that the country is very dependent on coal and that means that the cost of transition for them would be highest just to give you another example that also the german chancellor stressed number $2.00 when it comes to coal dependency in the e.u. is germany with 30 percent so there's a huge gap there even between number 2 and number one in the e.u. and that's why poland is wants to have concrete proposals they want to know exactly
5:13 pm
how much money they will get for the transition and that's why they're holding out with saying ok we will actually implement this they said ok to the overall goal of being climate neutral by 2050 but of course that's not worth a lot of they say we're ok with the goal but we will not implemented it'll be tough to pull them over but you had more countries in oppositions only a couple of months. before this so it means that most countries have come around and the only country still to need convincing is poland if you look at the pressure in the european union it seems likely that at some point if the price is right they will come around to if the price is right max hoffman thank you for your continued coverage. i'd like to tell you now about some of the other stories making news around the world. in algeria former prime minister abdul measure tabooed has won the presidential

5:15 pm
this week is in its 4th day now while thousands in the northern part of the country have been left in the dark after a massive storm broke power lines and covered others with ice iceland's national security council has been holding an emergency meeting to deal with the crisis. here's elance police chief has praise the military mission that recovered the bodies of 6 people who died during the volcanic eruption on for kerry white eyelet commission by bush said the team members showed absolute courage in an unpredictable and challenging environment 2 bodies remain on the island altogether at least 16 people died and dozens more were severely injured in the eruption. the recovery operation began at 1st light on friday when 2 haiti copses a satchel full full cari island and the ever present threat of another eruption.

5:17 pm
climate summit in madrid is set to be extended the conference was meant to conclude today but with a disagreement among the participants negotiations are now set to drag on for the past 2 weeks representatives of almost 200 states have been trying to find solutions to the climate crisis ahead of a crucial 2020 deadline set by the paris agreement on climate activists have been protesting at the conference they say even the best case outcome will fall short of what is needed to avert a future ravaged by global warming i ask you the very latest sign your phone the car is in madrid at the top 25 a converse and you're standing outside i see with demonstrators a behind you because activists are not happy with this summit what are their concerns. i'm actually standing outside the main venue where the where the sea knight of nations time conference is taking place and there are groups of demonstrators holding the straightest future protests in
5:18 pm
a tightly symbolic because of the standing right outside the venue where world leaders at this very moment are crashing out complicated negotiations on trying to get countries to slash greenhouse gas emissions and that is really the main issue here you know climate back to the stock angry. they say that the pace of talks inside those conference rooms is extremely slow and they feel that world leaders are kind of kind of getting bogged down in very technical issues rather than focusing on the real one which according to them is getting countries really committed to deep emissions cuts which they say is required in order to build warming. that the summit was supposed to end today this was supposed to do it was supposed to wrap up in some conclusions were supposed to be shared but negotiations are still ongoing what are some of the obstacles. so. the kind of the a couple of main sticking points and these are actually really deep technical
5:19 pm
issues but they are essential because the summit is essentially meant to you know hammer out the last final rules of how to implement the paris treaty which takes effect next year and some of those stumbling blocks are you know global carbon markets and the other one is really how to compensate countries that are already reeling from climate change impacts and destruction that cannot be adapted to all of prevention and this is really a question of finance about who pays for how much exactly so what sort of concrete commitments do we expect still to come from this summit. so the overarching goal of the summit is really to raise a mission that is to get countries to put in a more ambitious pledges on the table but you know that is unlikely to happy because the deadline under the paris treaty is actually next year for countries to submit more missions climate plans so we're unlikely to hear any big commitments here what's also missing here are any commitments from big polluters you know like brazil india or china and they've all indicated that they are unwilling to really
5:20 pm
step up the commitments and they're hoping that force will emitters will really step up and stay. in the car in a madrid copper 25 thank you very much for a continued coverage. and climate change sometimes makes itself felt and unexpected ways for example rising temperatures on russia's arctic coast are not only causing ice to melt but also releasing dangerous bacteria into the atmosphere that have long been lying dormant in the siberian permafrost bacteria like the deadly anthrax 3 years ago there was an outbreak on the mall and this law which spread from reindeer to humans and didn't use very rich adults traveled there to find out all the region's reindeer herders are dealing with the consequences. daybreak in the tundra. c time for breakfast.

we are on the amal peninsula near the pool our circle this is wes imperious indigenous people known as the feet nets leaf. tea an interesting seems to be in balance but life isn't nearly as idyllic as it looks traces of climate change are never far away it's left its mark on the next population and if they aren't here at the moment it's minus 10 degrees celsius which is pretty warm for this season and this area but the real problem comes in to some out while the average temperature here is about 8 degrees celsius higher than it should be. because of the mild temperatures bacteria that have survived for thousands of years can be emma frost surfacing and becoming active even anthrax bacteria sparse. 3 years ago it infected entire interiors for the 1st time in 75 years anthrax broke
5:22 pm
out these animals eat grass even the vets could theoretically transmitted the very dangerous infection. back then the rentier infected so. birds animals and humans live side by side as the tundra. would be lost without reindeer and i say provide food and clothing that our lives are intertwined we must vaccinate the reindeer to make sure their lives are not endangered then they'll be protected against anthrax. but experts warn there is no 100 percent guarantee 1st because some shepherds have refused to develop snake or their herds there weren't more of their herd will perish due to the vaccination then due to anthrax. during the last of the demick many of the infected animals had to be burnt many but not. but it is very expensive to burn
5:23 pm
a large animals that is why not all were incinerated it's likely that some animals were left in the tundra and may become a new source of anthrax so this problem may continue into the future. human activity is to blame both for the rapid to rise of temperatures in the russian arctic and of the thawing of the permafrost. promotion of gas production on your model was the one cause of the 2016 secs tragedy used oil coal and gas production lead to the greenhouse effect in the arctic. back among their endian ahmed's the series don't mean anything. nobody here is afraid of anthrax and there are me included randian meat either there or freshly cooked but the shirts also don't deny climate change. is it even.
5:24 pm
newsnight i don't believe in anthrax why should i it's much worse that our rivers and lakes dry up every summer. does that mean for you don't you know lakes means little water in the hot summer months the reindeer have nothing to drink then i'm not spot. dealing with 3 years ago the officials here declared a state of emergency things got better. but the next time i heat is just months to clean. your shutter without report now in football news liverpool a coach you're going to has extended his contract with the club until 2024 a cop took over at liverpool 4 years ago after 7 seasons at overseer dortmund and he got at the english side to the champions league title last season while liverpool currently have an 8 point lead in the premier league the club are hoping
