them over this, that and the other. it does not create huge amount of stability but it could create a little bit more stability than she has at the moment. what we do not know is what price she has had to pay for this. those details are not out there yet. i suspect that that negotiation will continue because we are looking at a principled agreement at the moment. but you can bet your bottom dollar that money will be involved, because it always is. extra money for northern ireland, perhaps protections in terms of benefits and things like that. but also, of course, and more crucially, the dup have some very strong views on brexit and how brexit ought to affect the province. they are very keen on there not been a hard border, customs points and checkpoints between the north and south when britain leaves the eu. they are keen on making sure that your farmers they are keen on making sure that yourfarmers get they are keen on making sure that your farmers get compensated to likely to get hit by leaving the eu. and of course, there is the hole far
in the area of the social conservatism which, will chime with some parts of the conservative party, but others very unhappy with that. there is an awful lot to do in terms of penning that deal down, i suspect, in the next couple of days. in last minutes, we have also heard that theresa may has got herself a new chief of staff which will be central in trying to sort those things out before the queen ‘s speech on monday. —— monday week. there was a lot of scrutiny over jeremy corbyn‘s dealings with figures in the ira and there have also been questions over the dup's dealings with loyalist extremists and then sinn fein saying this is not acceptable under the terms of the good friday agreement for the westminster government to be getting into bed with one of the parties in northern ireland. i think the last point there is going to be a very
important stumbling block because we know that the power—sharing agreement broke down. we know that there is an intention now to open negotiations to get it going again. that means obviously the dup and sinn fein coming to an arrangement to re—enter government in the north together. but in the past, what has happened is the british government has tried to stay out of that. tried to stand on the sidelines and act as what they call an honest broker in those negotiations. so you can see we re those negotiations. so you can see were sinn fein are coming from by saying hang on a minute, how can you be an honest broker if you are in a parliamentary arrangement at westminster with this party? so i am not surprised they are expressing those concerns. in terms of paramilitary links, the dup or a perfectly legal party. they are a political party. they have been around for a while. i suspect, like around for a while. i suspect, like a lot of parties in northern ireland, allegations, accusations
are hurled around about their links to orformer links or are hurled around about their links to or former links or whatever to the parliament is to grips. it has been an extraordinary situation as we know there over the last few yea rs. we know there over the last few years. iam not we know there over the last few years. i am not surprised that sort of thing is being said. but i don't think there is any sense here that their legitimacy in that sense is under question. gary, thank you very much. dated stuff. there will be much. dated stuff. there will be much more on that throughout the evening of course. and we will be back with you very soon. now on bbc news — sportsday. hello and welcome to the programme. the headlines this evening: harry kane breaks scottish hearts with an injury time equaliser at hampden park. the lions finally roar.
england have just scored. a good win for the lions in new zealand against crusaders. and the 20—year—old whose first tournament win is the french open. hello. we've got ten different sports covered in sportsday this evening, but we'll start with football and scotland faced england in their world cup qualifier for 2018. harry caine played a crucial role in the final minutes of the match. little like a hampden park. david. finally, the atmosphere is dying down somewhat from that dramatic end. this feature is the oldest in international football, dating end. this feature is the oldest in internationalfootball, dating back to 1872 and it is unlikely that we
have seen a more dramatic end than that. a shift in momentum and emotions as first england. they had it in the bag and then scotland struck back and the atmosphere inside hampden park was something i have never seen in sport before, but for england to clinch it at the end left the home fans leaving here tonight so dejected as ben crouch reports. to moscow, we're on our way! some england fans are already planning their trip to russia. these scottish ones are hoping their forward—thinking isn't all wasted. with some rivalries, all of that context with some rivalries, all of that co ntext ca n with some rivalries, all of that context ca n ta ke with some rivalries, all of that context can take a back—seat. scotla nd context can take a back—seat. scotland versus england is normally wa nt to scotland versus england is normally want to stir the emotions. sadly, the first half didn't do that. in this battle of britain between red and blue, the majority of the chances fell to the team in red, gaining elite was more of a headache. gareth southgate sent on alex oxalate chamberlain and the game swung. lee griffiths leaned up
a late free kick. emotions were stirring now all right. no second invitation needed. which is exactly what england gave him with a minute remaining. a scarcely believable resort on the cards —— result on the cards. harry kane with a captain's goal, a first for england for over a year. one to bring scotland to its knees. a precious three points slip away, reaching next year's world cup? don't put your shirt on it. late drama in the match between azerbaijan and northern ireland. a late goal has given northern ireland a 1—0 win. the group b qualifying match. from belfast to azerbaijan, across a continent they travelled. the wellcome, raucous and hot. michael o'neill prepared by training his squad in
nearby turkey. suited to the climate, liam boyce had to show he was suited to international football. his first competitive start an early goal. for the hosts, a win is vital if they have any chance of reaching russia. they made their presence felt, as did the heat. but the visitors coped with both. this perfect ball lacking any sort of touch. just the one that would do tonight for northern ireland. chances became clearer and maybe a point would not be a bad result at all. just in the nick of time, this happened. and suddenly the 3000 mile journey homejust got happened. and suddenly the 3000 mile journey home just got a little bit easier. we will talk rugby in a moment. this catch was one of the highlights of the champions trophy encounter between england and
australia. always feisty at edgbaston this afternoon. find out if it helped to send the australians home, though. and would you dry at 90 mph with your back wheel on fire? the skies did that today at the world rally championship in italy. we will find out later if they manage to make it to the finish line. there will have been a change in the mood of the british and irish lions team, after warren gatland's side won the most challenging match on their tour of new zealand so far. the lions beat the crusaders 12—3, in christchuch, and it was all about the boot of owen farrell. tim hague reports. this is the time for the british and irish lions to call in the cavalry in canterbury. regarded as the best club team in world rugby, the crusaders, and the tourists would play like they were on home turf stopping a side with eight all blacks in it from the start. always influential, owen farrell put them 6—0 up and despite the odd bump in the road, as well as a solitary penalty, it was his first start on tour and it
was going rather well. while it wasn't free—flowing, riveting rugby it was solid. the lions sniffed out danger. the pressure was telling here and a penalty awarded. it was a fourth and final owen farrell success. make no mistake, this was effectively a test match. the first defeat this season for the crusaders and a cavalry charge for the british and irish lions. a tough week. it has been really tough. there has been a lot of criticism. people have brittany tore off already after two games and that has been challenging. it has been challenging for all of us and we have had to stay strong within the group and had to keep faith and to the goal of the test match and keep improving from there. so i hope we
didn't disappoint too many people tonight. gregor townsend has opened his tenure as scotland coach with a comfortable 34—13 win over italy. playing in singapore, they ran in four tries in eleven minutes — two either side of half time. tim visser finished off finn russell's clever kick. ross ford, who had scored just one try in 107 previous internationals, then added two tries in quick succession. damien hoyland completed the scoring. scotland will play australia next saturday. south africa beat france 37—14. two tries in the space of four minutes. the french were down to 1a men. the teams will meet next weekend in durban. it's a busy day of rugby union internationals. england are in sanjuan to face argentina in their first test, that match kicks off at quarter past eight. and ireland are in newjersey to take on the united states later. that match begins at ten tonight. to the french open now and what
a final it was for the women's championship this afternoon. a thrilling three set encounter was won by an unseeded 20 year old from latvia. jelena ostapenko had never won a match at the french open before but she is the new roland garros champion after beating the third seed, simon halep. adam wild reports. in paris, this would always be a day of firsts. jelena ostapenko had never played simon halep before and neither had ever won a grand slam. ostapenko of them had never won any title before. unseeded, but also unfazed. a style of tennis that is all or nothing. astonishing power, but for every magnificent, unplayable winner, there was an error as well and it was those that helped halep to the first set. how would the young latvian cover? well, three love down in the second set, it did not look good. questions over her temperament were answered in the most thrilling way.
bludgeoning winner after winner, roaring back to take the match to a deciding third set. the french crowd now with a new—found favourite, this was her moment. fittingly, it was another brilliant winner that won it. and on a day of firsts in paris, there is a feeling this may just be the first of many. jelena ostapenko — it's a name you'll hear a lot more from now on. the 20—year old has become the youngest winner at roland garros since ana ivanovic in 2007. she's the first latvian to win a grand slam tennis title. and she is the first unseeded woman to win the suzanne lenglen cup since 1933. let's go to our tennis correspondent who was watching that match. she played fearlessly. she has done throughout the tournament.
the very first game of the match, having kept simon halep waiting on the baseline for the best part of a minute while she prepared herself and rearranged her towels on her chair and her racket bag, she then broke to love and then started to miss a little bit and simon halep with her experience was in a very strong position, leading by a set to love and three games to love and that was what was so remarkable about the turnaround. jelena ostapenko continued going for her shots and even though she still makes a lot of unforced errors, the ratio of winners to errors started to change. she came from behind to win the second set and then when in a position to win her first grand slam title at the age of 20 years and two days, just didn't blink at all and won that deciding set by a lot. alfie hewitt, winning the french open wheelchair singles title, he told me earlier that he has not played on clay for two years and yet he came
here on his debut and he has beaten the defending champion in the final in some style. he was playing alongside gordon reid but they lost to the top seeds, the french pair in straight sets in the final. but still, a remarkable date for alfie hewitt. england have beaten australia in a rain affected final group match of the champions trophy. england were not able to complete their innings, so not able to complete their innings, so it was the duckworth—lewis calculation that gave them the victory in the end. comfortable for the home side. england in charge of the home side. england in charge of the game. a0 runs in front of the scorer when play was suspended. australia are out, having not managed to play a full match in the whole tournament. this it seems like yea rs whole tournament. this it seems like years since it's been here. australia haven't seen it at all. two games, two wash—outs. another
would send their tournament down the drain. still, stay optimistic. if the sun shines today, patrons are reminded to apply and reapply sunscreen. reminded to apply and reapply sunscreen. aaron finch bats on the sunny side after david warner went. he and captain steve smith made nearly 100 together. finch flinched, going up, up and away. australia stuttered but glenn maxwell likes a big finish. he aims high. the problem out there was juggling jason roy. a cat which had to bejudged and appreciated on replay. touch the ball and boundary of the same time. this would have been six. adil rashid and mark wood did the rest. both finished with four wickets each. australia got to 277. england are already in the semifinals. thank goodness, some muttered. jason roy out of form and out for four. two others followed. 35—3. then, you guessed it. it is a quarter past three and it is raining again.
australia must be sick of it. they know that even if england can't knock them out, the weather still might. the shower passed, but so did australia's moment. england moved from crisis to command, thanks to one morgan and ben stokes. stokes it is on thejust one morgan and ben stokes. stokes it is on the just before the weather set in, largely because of him england were well ahead. a mathematical victory was theirs. australia leave this tournament as they have spent much of it, watching they have spent much of it, watching the rain. two games in rugby league's super league this evening. catala ns dragons hosted huddersfield giants. and at seven o'clock, wakefield take on leeds. leeds are in fourth place at the moment, wakefield and fifth. he's jamaica's most famous sportsman, and this afternoon usain bolt will compete for the final time in his home country. bolt will retire after this summer's world championships in london, and jamaicans are preparing a memoarble send—off for him when he runs in the 100 metres at today's racers grand prix.
just a warning there's some flash photography coming up in ade adedoyin‘s report from jamaica. i know there is going to be energy and it will be one big party and a bit emotional but i am definitely looking forward to it. for me, i am discovering out there open wide and a strike to do my best as always, put on a show for them because that is why they are coming out too. england's women hockey players have been well beaten by argentina. england lost 5—1 at the olympic park to the team ranked third in the world. james burford reports. a clash between the northern and southern hemispheres.
in a sport where close control and quick thinking rule, argentina set the pace. this deft flick forcing the short corner. the first golden chance of the match producing the first goal, perhaps then a barometer of the storm that was to come. but not to be deterred and through a short corner of their own, england's response was almost immediate. albeit a touch chaotic. argentina's play soon reached gale force, goals coming thick and fast. a combination of power, composure and skill putting england under pressure. and with literally a handful of seconds remaining, a final surge. england hammered at home, but a chance to make amends tomorrow against the netherlands. lewis hamilton has equalled the record of 65 paul positions by qualifying for the grand prix. nick pa rrott has qualifying for the grand prix. nick parrott has the details. lewis hamilton's fans had little to shout
about in monaco, but they knew they would see their man bounceback in montreal. the briton has dominated at this venue, claiming five balls and five race wins. mercedes renaissance was on show from the start. this rider's locke had not changed. he was bounced out in monaco but here he helped filming himself to blame. sebastien fettle's lock also went missing. you struggle to get the best out of his ferrari. he said —— step things up, clocking the fastest lap ever seen and then going even quicker. in the end, it was a target the german could not get close to. second on the grid but a part of a second off the pace. hamilton's 65th position equals his hero and the brazilian's family presented him with a helmet to mark a special achievement. british rider cal crutchlow crashed in qualifying for the catalan motogp,
damaging his hopes of a first championship win of the season. this is his on—board camera footage. his bike gave way underneath him during one of his fastest laps. he emerged unscathed from the incident and will be 17th on the grid for tomorrow's race. dani pedrosa will start on pole in his home race. the spaniard already has one win this season, but has never won a world championship. the overnight leader of the rally italia has had to retire after his car suffered a broken suspension. new zealander hayden paddon and his british co—driver sebastian marshall clipped a grass bank. they tried to carry on, and somehow still managed to finish the thirteenth stage of the rally in sardinia. but the damage had cost them 80 seconds and they later took the decision that the car was beyond repair and retired from the race. estonian ott ta nak is the new leader. that is quite impressive, to keep
going while the car is flaming behind you. my car has got enough dents in it, but that makes my car look good. you drive down the motorway with that, you are in trouble. that's all from sportsday. there'll be more sport here on bbc news throughout the evening. you are watching bbc news. it is all go after the result in the general election on thursday. we have heard in the last half an hour or so that the democratic unionist party, which won ten seats in northern ireland on thursday night, have agreed to the principles of an outline agreement to support the tories on what is known as a confidence and supply agreement. art —— the deputy
political editor of the times nose for more about this than me and he joins us now. there was more about what this arrangement means and how it works. well, basically, after the general election, the conservatives did not win enough seats in order to command a majority in the house of commons. they got the hundred 18 seats. they needed 323 or 32a in order to command a majority in the house of commons. that meant that they are looking for allies in the house of commons and that has ended up house of commons and that has ended up being the dup. which, arguably, they are most closely ideological line too. so gavin williams and the chief whip of the conservative party have been over there talking to senior dup figures. it looks like they have struck some kind of outline agreement to ensure that the dup will promise to vote with the conservatives to get key parts of their legislation through. that suggests that the deal will involve
supporting theresa may to remain prime minister, getting through budgets, and also support brexit. that looks like the outline of the deal. yes, it looks like it. certainly what we have been told by the press association is this is what downing street are saying. that is the source that we have got it from. the press association are very reliable. it has not been used for a very long time. well, it is overwhelmingly likely to be true that this has happened and there is no way that the tories want to do a deal so i think that is safe to say. this is the second hung parliament we have had in the last ten years. the last hung parliament saw a full coalition deal being done between the conservatives and the liberal democrats. that led to the creation ofa democrats. that led to the creation of a document with specific agreed policy proposals laid down there and that meant that there was an outline
programme for government on all sorts of areas that would be worked through by the coalition government in many areas. that was what happened. in this case, i would expect the agreement to be rather more limited. i think what will happen in this case is that there will be some areas where they have struck agreement and some areas where the dup disagree and withhold votes a nd where the dup disagree and withhold votes and then the government had to a nswer votes and then the government had to answer the issue in the house of commons and maybe they will get it through, maybe they won't. a confidence and supply arrangement means that the smaller party will back the government ‘s and that will allow the larger party to continue governing and it means some things to do with money but other things are to do with money but other things a re less to do with money but other things are less certain. last time it was used, according to the bbc news website, a very reliable source, was during the 19705, during the labour— liberal democrat pact. what are the concessions might the dup want? i'm sure that there will be certain
things that involve money to northern ireland. that is what you would expect. but i think they are going to offer something bigger. e55entially, one of the big problem i5 there5a may has is a manifesto. the manifesto bombed on the door step up and down the country. so i think in addition to things to do with northern ireland, and i am not enough of an expert to be able to li5t enough of an expert to be able to list all of those things, but i think the thing that will matter to voters up and down the uk is that all of a sudden we will find some of the more contingent things of the ma nifesto the more contingent things of the manifesto disappearing ju5t the more contingent things of the manifesto disappearing just like that. so i would be very surprised if we had the plan on social care. i would be surprised if we saw a restoration of winter fuel payments. maybe even the triple lock could creep back in again. the conservatives wanted to replace it with a double lock. so those changes, either explicitly or done between the two parties, we may see over the coming deal. this is a
second chance for there5a may, but there5a may and the dup will go out of their way to present this as a promise of stability, but we should not be entirely fooled. thi5 promise of stability, but we should not be entirely fooled. this will give there5a may a majority of about 17 were lying on them for votes. that is not enough for brexit. so while the language flowing from this agreement will be one of stability and a majority in the house of commons and the ability to do brexit, i am commons and the ability to do brexit, iam not commons and the ability to do brexit, i am not sure that this is where it is going to take us. brexit in particular will be enormou5ly divisive amongst mp5 in general and it will require a majority of far more than 17. be aware. thi5 it will require a majority of far more than 17. be aware. this is a time limited government, even though this is a sticking pla5ter measure to get it through the next few weeks and perhaps the next few months. i would be surprised if it went beyond the end of the year. thank you very much. we know that the dup have
concerns about the nature of the border between northern ireland and the republic of ireland after brexit. that could have something to do with it. we will talk more later. here's the weather. very good evening to you. it has been a beautiful summer day for some of you and a sucker for others. you beautiful summer day for some of you and a suckerfor others. you can beautiful summer day for some of you and a sucker for others. you can see the strip of cloud. thi5 and a sucker for others. you can see the strip of cloud. this is where the strip of cloud. this is where the cloud has been wrapped around. an area of low pressure, way off to the west of the uk at the moment. it i5 the west of the uk at the moment. it is keeping the wind 5trong acro55 the country this evening and it is pushing that weather front further eastwards. patchy rain and drizzle at the moment acro55 eastwards. patchy rain and drizzle at the moment across the midlands into the south west. that will drift its way towards east anglia and the south—east tomorrow night. clear skies in its wake but some showers overnight. temperature i5 skies in its wake but some showers overnight. temperature is not dropping away much overnight. particularly muggy towards the south—east corner. pressure acro55 scotla nd south—east corner. pressure acro55 scotland and northern ireland. here i5 scotland and northern ireland. here is where we will have the strongest wind5. sun5hine is where we will have the strongest wind5. sunshine and showers. not only showers first thing. some will
