news. hello, i'm hugh ferris. manchester united bossjose mourinho has been accused of tax evasion from his time at real madrid where he was manager from 2010 to 2013. it's the latest in a series of high—profile tax fraud cases involving football stars in spain. let's get more on this from our reporter, simon stone. what is the claim againstjose mourinho? this morning spanish prosecutors filed two counts of tax fraud against manchester united managerjose mourinho which date back to 2011 and 2012 when he was the manager of real madrid. the claim made in a statement today is thatjose mourinho claim made in a statement today is that jose mourinho owes claim made in a statement today is thatjose mourinho owes 3.3 million euros, £2.9 million, and the allegation is he failed to declare
1:35 pm
reve nu es allegation is he failed to declare revenues from his image rights with the aim of obtaining illicit profit. the prosecutors said he had already paid £1 million in 201a but the information provided at that time was incorrect. there has been no comment from jose mourinho who is not due back in the country for another two weeks ahead of pre—season training. another two weeks ahead of pre-season training. a theme developing in spain, the latest from cristiano ronaldo, he is facing similar charges. he is indeed and he is due to give evidence at his own tax fraud trial on the 21st ofjuly -- 315t. tax fraud trial on the 21st ofjuly —— 31st. he has been accused of defrauding of £12.9 million over a four—year period from 2011. again, it relates to image rights and this time cristiano ronaldo is said to be so time cristiano ronaldo is said to be so unhappy at the allegations he is considering leaving real madrid,
1:36 pm
possibly to return to manchester united. it seems the spanish authorities have got a bee in their bonnet about this. injuly authorities have got a bee in their bonnet about this. in july last year, lionel messi was given a 21 month suspended sentence and forced to pay £1.7 million after being found guilty of using tax havens to hide more than £3 million in earnings. we will follow this with interest. thank you. the lions have won their final match before the first test against the all blacks on saturday. warren gatland insists there are still places up for grabs in his squad for auckland, so there was plenty of motivation for the so—called midweek side in hamilton this morning agianst the chiefs. jack nowell spotting a gap to score the first try of four tries. the lions dominated up front again and as ian henderson was attempting to drive over, the referee, jerome garces, decided to award a penalty try — the second in as many games. then in a slightly more expansive move, jack nowell again found space for his second try of the match. jared payne went over to complete a 3a—6 victory,
1:37 pm
the lions' most emphatic of the tour so far. andy murray will donate any winnings from this week's queen's tournament to families of the victims of the grenfell fire tragedy. that could be as much as £350,000. the world number was due to play another birtish player, aljaz bedene, this afternoon in his first match. but bedene has withdrawn with a wrist injury. so murray will now take on the world number 90, jordan thompson, from australia, as he launches his campaign to win his sixth queen's title. after missing out on the nottingham open title on sunday, johanna konta is back in action today, continuing her grasscourt preparation ahead of wimbledon. she's facing ukraine's lesia tsurenko in the first round of the aegon classic in birmingham and has made a great start, breaking her opponent in the second game. she has dropped only three games on the way to take the first set. going with serve in the early stages of
1:38 pm
the second. already through to the second round today is the two—time wimbledon champion, petra kvitova. she beat fellow czech tereza smitkova 6—2, 6—3. she'll play britain's naomi broady next. that is all the sport for now. much more in the next hour. let's go back to the latest developments after the attack on a mosque in north london, and as we've been hearing, many members of london's muslim community fear a rise of hate crime incidents. 0ur correspondent, lisa hampele, has been at finsbury park, where the attack took place, this morning. multi faith communities have been happily living side—by—side here for many years. now they are pulling together, as you can see behind me, there are flowers, loads of posters here, let's find the courage to love, some of them say, not in my name. we stand by you. as in g re nfell tower, name. we stand by you. as in grenfell tower, there is a long list of names and messages on a piece of
1:39 pm
paper going down the wall here and the flowers are growing and we have seen the flowers are growing and we have seen people come and read them slowly, showing their children, writing on the board here. we have been hearing that even though there is calm and there constituents, people do feel unsettled. —— ee i am joined by pauljackson, an expert on far right groups. we have been hearing about how difficult it is to tell if there is a rise in islamophobia, but there is a feeling on the street people are unsettled? there is a lot of data to show islamophobic incidents have increased in the last few years and also that specific terrorist incidents can lead to a specific rise too. that is certainly something we have seen. it is casual islamophobia becoming the norm?m many ways we have seen elements of
1:40 pm
islamophobia developed in different ways. there is lots of casual islamophobia which is different to the extreme motivations that seem to have motivated attacks like this one. islamophobia takes many forms and we need to think in different ways how to tackle more casual or more extremes foi’itis ways how to tackle more casual or more extremes forms of prejudice. how can it be prevented? in terms of monitoring and dealing with far right groups, the state security services need to do more to think about how much resource they put into that. including things like the prevent sphere and how that might develop. more work in schools, developing education strategies, these sorts of things. there is also a wider role for civil society to do more, become more aware and work out what is acceptable and unacceptable. and maybe events like this will cause a rethink. i understand you say the media has a lock to do with it? this is something academics wrestle with. it is very difficult
1:41 pm
to seek direct causal links between some of the more populist print media's reporting of issues and how that might feed into violent extremism. certainly we can talk about the media creating a more permissive environment and legitimising and normalising view is that a few years ago would have been seen that a few years ago would have been seen as that a few years ago would have been seen as taboo and problematic. exactly how that links directly to an individual act and incident is very difficult to demonstrate but it is something we ought to think about. thank you very much. from here in finsbury park where the flowers are growing and the messages of support which can be summed up m, of support which can be summed up in, we stand by you, are growing. a van driver has been killed after migrants put tree trunks onto the motorway to stop traffic near the french port of calais. the incident happened in the early hours of the morning after the van, whose driver is believed to be polish, hit one of three lorries which had been blocked by the tree trunks. authorities say it was the the sixth time in just over six weeks that the road has been
1:42 pm
blocked this way. nine migrants were found in one of the lorries. 0ur correspondent, simonjones 0ur correspondent, simon jones is 0ur correspondent, simonjones is in calais near the scene of the accident. what they want to do is stop the traffic, bring it to a halt, particularly in the early hours of the morning, when it is dark, and use that opportunity to try to get on board lorries bound for britain. the latest incident happened at around 3:a5am french time, on this stretch of the a16 behind me. what happened is the motorway has partially reopened so you have one lane of traffic which is going but another lane remains cordoned off. just beyond the cones, you can see scorch marks on the road from where the van burst into flames. as you say, the sixth time this has happened since may. the van driver hit the back of stationary lorries and inside one of the lorries, they found nine migrants.
1:43 pm
we are told two of those are from afghanistan and the rest from eritrea. motoring organisations and groups that represent british lorry drivers have said for a long time it is only a matter of time before someone is only a matter of time before someone is killed because the migrants have been using increasingly desperate tactics to try to get on board lorries bound for britain. we have seen blockades set up where they have put trees into the road and set them on fire. we do not think last night there was a fire but it was simply the fact lorries had come to a halt in front of the van that led to the van driver hitting the back of the lorries. i spoke to the authorities in calais this morning and said many people are particularly worried about this, lorry drivers have predicted this and it is worrying for tourist traffic with the holiday season coming up. for tourist traffic with the holiday season coming up. the authorities say they have hundreds of police officers in calais, but they admit it isa officers in calais, but they admit it is a long stretch of road to police, the main road leading to the
1:44 pm
port of calais and eurotunnel, but they say they will review security here, but motoring organisation say it is simply not good enough. they wa nt it is simply not good enough. they want more, they want the french authorities and government to step in and they even called for the army to patrol the section of road. as you have seen, it can be extremely dangerous. simon jones reporting. as we've been hearing, the military have joined the fight to try and contain a wild fire in central portugal that has killed more than 60 people. authorities believe dry thunderstorms sparked the blaze on saturday in pedrogao grande, which is 150km northeast of the capital, lisbon. a short time ago, we spoke to diana arauja from the international department of the portuguese red cross, who gave us this update. u nfortu nately, we unfortunately, we have had recent developments in the last hour or so and two fronts of the fire have joined so more villages have been
1:45 pm
evacuated by the red cross, the portuguese red cross, in the last hour. we have evacuated 57 people from a nursing home near a front which was active this past evening. and we are currently also evacuating civilians from another village nearby. so, yes, in the latest hour, we have had this development, so the fire is still ongoing and it is affecting other areas around pedrogao grande and other municipalities. the view of the portuguese red cross there. at this time yesterday, we interviewed live a contributor who expressed the view that maajid nawaz was a hate preacher. mr nawaz is founding chairman of the quilliam foundation, an organisation which describes itself as one of the world's leading counter—extremism organisations. we would like to make clear that we were unaware that mr nawaz would be named in this way and would like to
1:46 pm
apologise to mr nawaz. you are watching bbc news. in a moment, a summary you are watching bbc news. in a moment, a summary of the business news, but first, the headlines. the chancellor, phillip hammond, tells financial leaders that he wants britain to leave the eu in a way that will boost british business and jobs. police are continuing to question a a7—year—old man after a van was driven into a crowd near a mosque in north london. the former liberal democrat cabinet minister sir vince cable is to stand for the leadership of the party, saying he has the energy and enthusiasm to succeed tim farron. is. -- is. —— the business news now. four former bosses of barclays have been charged over allegations of fraud — after the bank raised £7bn from qatar at the height of the financial crisis. the serious fraud office
1:47 pm
is investigating payments made to qatar and a loan facility it offered the country. failure to agree a good deal with europe could permanently damage britain's are making industry, a warning from the industry body. it says car—makers would face a cliff edge and be hit with the new tariffs, charges and delays. many of our car makers are foreign—owned, but they employ thousands of staff in the uk and account for a significant share of exports to the eu and the rest of the world. thousands of tesco customers have had home deliveries cancelled as a result of a computer glitch that is affecting services nationwide. a spokesperson for the supermarket said that up to 10% of customer orders had been affected. many customers took to social media to complain that their grocery orders had not arrived as scheduled. barclays bank and four individuals at the bank — including former chief executive, john varley — have been charged with conspiracy to commit fraud and provide unlawful financial assistance. the charges relate to the bank's emergency fundraising at the height
1:48 pm
of the financial crisis in 2008 when rival banks rbs and lloyds sought government bailouts. ba rclays instead opted to seek money from qatar. but there are questions over how the funds were raised and what barclays offered in return. our business editor, simonjack, has the details. two bits of that transaction, of that fundraising, in qatar which prompted this five—year investigation, the first one was advisory fees that were not disclosed at first and eventually it was disclosed £332 million was paid to qatar holdings, who supplied the investment, as i say, in advisory fees, and there was a question mark over whether that advice was really nonexistent and this was reallyjust, if you like, a bung to their new benefactors in the middle east. the second was a loan that was made from the bank to qatar holdings around the same time of this investment and the charge there is that, essentially, the bank was lending qatar money to buy shares in barclays bank
1:49 pm
and that is what is known as unlawful financial assistance, a big no—no for regulators. those are the two charges. but possibly the most interesting thing is this is the first time senior executives at a british bank have been personally charged with criminal conduct for their role in the financial crisis. ina in a statement, one of the former executives charged, richard boath, the ex—european head of financial institutions, has pledged to defend himself, saying the decision to charge me is based on a false understanding of my role on the fa cts , understanding of my role on the facts, i was not a decision—makers and had no control over what the bank did in 2008. we will bring you more on that story as we get it. when you hear the phrase co—op, what do you think of? the supermarket? the bank? actually the co—operative sector is a whole chunk of our economy which seems to be thriving — more than 13 million people in the uk are members
1:50 pm
of a co—operative and we're notjust taking about the supermarket and the bank — there are almost 7,000 independent co—operatives across the uk, ranging from high street retailers and farmer—owned businesses to community sports clubs and web developers, which together turned over £36 billion last year. we arejoined by we are joined by the secretary general of cooperatives uk. for lots of people, when they hear the phrase cooperative, they will think of the bank and the supermarket. how important are they the cooperative sector and especially the bank, given it is partly owned by hedge funds? yes, people will see co—op food, the bank with ethics, and they will think it is cooperatives, but there are many more cooperatives out there, 7000 indeed. they are behind some of britain's best known
1:51 pm
household products. ribena, all of the berries comes from a co—operative of farmers. it is a common form. it is just on the high street, it is the food on the bank. why are more peoplejoining cooperatives? where are we seeing the most growth? we are seeing growth right across the sector but some of the new areas, the creative sector, freelance workers coming together, for example, in a digital space, software programmers and the like, rather than operate on their own, they are coming together to form freelancer co—opts and we have seen a form freelancer co—opts and we have seen a 28% increase in the number of people working in those employee owned worker cooperatives. people working in those employee owned worker cooperativeslj mentioned owned worker cooperatives.” mentioned the turnover for last year, 36 billion, pretty impressive, but it is lower than previous years, some previous years, what does that tell us? it is their or thereabouts, and uptake on last year, and over the last five years, we have seen
1:52 pm
growth. i think it is a buoyant sector and it is a real tribute to some of the leaders steps forward for example in the sector of the convenience stores of co—opts, quite tough economic circumstances. when the economy is tough, that is when you need people onside, it helps if your staff members or customers because you have their loyalty. what impact has the gig economy had on the sector? the gig economy is where jobs are being turned into freelancers, self—employed, zero hours contracts, and that is supposed to be wonderful but it leaves a sense of powerlessness, if you are just waiting on someone else to be able to come through, they may not pay you on time. freelancers gathering together into cooperatives isa gathering together into cooperatives is a really exciting area of the cooperative sector because what we finding is is an old solution but it isa finding is is an old solution but it is a new use for it. if you are a
1:53 pm
freelancer, coming together, it gives you greater power, you can win more business. secretary general of cooperatives uk, thank you for your time. quick look at the markets. the ftse is down slightly, it was up early because the pound was down and the pound fell on words from the bank of england governor, mark carney, speaking at mansion house, he said he did not see interest rates moving any time soon. it caused the pound to fall. the ftse is back down. barclays bank, the serious fraud office charges against the bank and a number of former chief executives, the share price down almost 0.5%. brent crude is also done, over concern of oversupply. increased supply from libya, nigeria and the us. down to a seven—month low, down just over 2%. that is it from me, more in an hour. back to you, rachel. scientists have begun human trials
1:54 pm
of a cholesterol—lowering vaccine to help prevent heart disease. the injection is designed to stop fatty deposits from clogging the arteries. it would offer patients an alternative to taking daily pills to cut their risk of stroke, angina and heart attacks. our health correspondent, michelle roberts, has more. heart disease and stroke are the world's biggest killers. millions of people in britain take cholesterol—lowering drugs to reduce their risk. although statin pills are cheap and very effective, they don't suit everyone. some people dislike taking daily medication or forget doses. a few have to stop them because of side—effects. now scientists from the netherlands organisation of applied scientific research believe they may have found an alternative treatment. it is a vaccine that helps the body's immune system get rid of bad cholesterol from the blood. studies in mice show it helps stop the buildup of fatty deposits in the arteries. the first human trials are now under way but researchers say it will take
1:55 pm
six years before they know if the jab is safe and effective enough to get regulatory approval. if it does become available, they say it shouldn't be seen as an excuse for people to eat lots of high—fat food and that eating a healthy diet, taking regular exercise and quitting smoking can help lower cholesterol and your risk of heart disease. it is one of the biggest unanswered mysteries of the universe. is there life out there beyond this planet? well, if there is, it might be found on one of ten new ea rth—sized planets which have been discovered in the milky way. nasa scientists say data from the kepler space telescope has shown a set of rocky planets orbiting their suns at a similar distance to our earth and sun, meaning they could support water and life. one of the scientists said the discovery indicated we are probably not alone. it sounds suitably mysterious. let

1:57 pm
day storms, although many of us will have a dry day. fresher conditions in north—east england. fine weather for scotland. similar conditions for northern ireland. a few showers working in from the west this evening. they could be thundery but perhaps not too much in the way of heavy rain. but it will probably come down in fairly big blobs. uncomfortable night for sure for some of us. these are the temperatures at 10pm. another uncomfortable night's fleet. it stays very warm across england and wales, hot even, with plenty of sunshine —— another uncomfortable night's fleet. wednesday afternoon, probably the hottest of the heat wave, temperatures up to 3a. if we do see highs of 3a, it would be the hottestjune do see highs of 3a, it would be the hottest june date for a0 do see highs of 3a, it would be the hottestjune date for a0 years. as we go through wednesday evening, it
