earlier in the evening, usain bolt also began the defence of his 100m title, as he competes professionally for the last time. our sports news correspondent natalie pirks was at the london stadium. music: "god save the queen" it has become a familiar scene here. the smile, the anthem, the gold. but this win was arguably the greatest of them all. his competitors went off hard, working together to grind farah down. as mo tried to whip the crowd into a frenzy, his rivals kicked on. still, farah held firm. down the final straight, the nation and his wife willed him to victory. we needn't have worried. it was his fastest time in six years. he's a one—man world superpower! it's gold for farah! the training had all been worth it — to be able to celebrate with the most important people in his life. i got a bit emotional at the start, then i had to get in the zone,
and, yeah, it'sjust been, you know, amazing. he's not the only one gearing up for goodbye. lapping up the london love, usain bolt has not been lightning quick this season, but then he hasn't yet needed to be. commentator: here he comes, and there he goes. 10.08. that's him through to today's semis. he is aiming for his 12th world title, and london loves him. they always show me so much love, and i really appreciate it. i'm just happy to be here. this track has witnessed yet another piece of mo farah history. his tenth major global title, his most impressive yet. this stadium was built to leave a legacy. sir mo's will last a lifetime. natalie pirks, bbc news, at the london stadium. and there it is, just a few minutes
110w and there it is, just a few minutes now before events begin in the london stadium this morning at the world athletics championships. inside, final preparations are being made. you can see a little bit of rainwater on the track, there has been light rain during the course of the morning, so they will be dealing with that. we have heard they are trying the —— drying the seats. we will find out what is coming up and speak to jo pavey will find out what is coming up and speak tojo pavey in the next few minutes here on breakfast. prosecutors have told a court in las vegas that a british computer expert has admitted creating software that steals bank details. marcus hutchins, aged 23 and from devon, will plead not guilty. mr hutchins was praised earlier this year for helping to limit a global cyber attack that brought down several nhs computer networks. he'll appear in court next tuesday. from las vegas, our north america correspondent james cook reports. marcus hutchins appeared in a las vegas courtroom. the prosecution said he admitted writing computer code designed
to steal banking details and also claimed there was evidence that he discussed how to split the profits with an accomplice. but his lawyer says he denies all the charges against him. how is he doing? he's holding up and in good spirits. the family, i think, support and the friends‘ support and his co—workers and the community have been tremendously supportive for him. indeed, many fellow cyber security experts regard marcus hutchins as a hero for stopping an attack which caused chaos for the nhs and spread to 150 countries around the world. the fbi moved in at the airport as he was about to fly home to the uk. he is due in court in wisconsin on tuesday. until then, the judge here ordered his release on bail, subject to conditions which include surrendering his passport and gps monitoring. marcus hutchins appeared in court in las vegas right at the end of the working week. his lawyers had just a few minutes to scramble together his bail money, but by the time they had done so,
the court had closed, which means we will have to spend the weekend injail. james cook, bbc news, las vegas. the united states has officially informed the united nations that it's withdrawing from the paris climate agreement. injune, president donald trump drew international condemnation when he announced the decision to leave the agreement. it had been drawn up by nearly 200 nations to curb greenhouse gas emissions in 2015. the state department says the us will continue to participate in climate—change meetings until the withdrawal process is completed. the irish prime minister, leo varadkar, continues his first official visit to northern ireland today. he'll attend a pride event in belfast later. yesterday he focused on brexit, suggesting that a bilateral customs union could be the best way for the uk to deal with the issue of northern ireland's border with the republic. our ireland correspondent chris buckler explains. the irish border has
become a divisive issue in the debate about brexit. the scores of completely open roads that connect northern ireland and the republic carry huge amounts of traffic and trade, and on his first official visit north of the border as ireland's prime minister, leo varadkar insisted that the free movement of people, goods and services should continue here after the uk leads the eu. perhaps the biggest challenge for our generation is brexit. every single aspect of life in northern ireland could be affected by the outcome. we will do all that we can in brussels, london and dublin to achieve the best outcome for everybody on this island. to protect our peace, ourfreedom, our prosperity. leo varadkar has also been meeting northern ireland's main political parties, including the dup, who supported brexit. they have taken exception to some of his recent comments that were critical of those he called the "hard brexiteers". some of his party members
have also questioned his decision to attend and event this morning as part of belfast pride. the organisation is campaigning for the introduction of same—sex marriage in northern ireland, which in the past the dup has blocked. leo varadkar is openly gay and campaigned during the republic's marriage equality referendum two years ago. but the democratic unionists have suggested he should not interfere with social issues within northern ireland. brexit is, however, expected to have an impact on both sides of the border, and as a result the irish government are likely to remain very vocal as the uk continues to negotiate its departure from the eu. chris buckler, bbc news, belfast. after record—breaking temperatures across europe this week, scientists are warning that the number of people killed by extreme weather conditions could increase 50—fold by the end of this century. a study in the lancet planetary health journal suggests that heatwaves alone could account for 100,000 deaths a year. researchers in italy say
urgent action is needed to curb the effects of climate change. rail passengers face three weeks of disruption from today as refurbishment work begins at the uk's busiest train station. ten platforms will be closed at london waterloo until the end of august as part of an £800 million revamp. simonjones is at the station for us now. simon, it is a station i know very well, waterloo, very busy — this is going to cause quite a bit of disruption for people travelling up from the south—west of england, isn't it? yeah, the warning is it will cause huge disruption, and that is because 99 millionjourneys will cause huge disruption, and that is because 99 million journeys are made each year to and from this station, so when you take out a lot of the capacity, it is going to have a big impact. if you look at the
platform here, a pretty unusual sight at this time of the morning, no passengers at all, because ten platforms have been taken out of service. that is because they are planning to extend four of them to increase capacity at this station over the next three weeks or so. now, if you take a look at at the boards, you can see trains are still running, but the warning is that there will be much reduced capacity over the following period. now, passengers here are just trying to make sense of it all. the warning from network rail is, if you don't need to come to this station, try and keep away. they have even been telling people to take their holidays over the next three weeks if they can because there will be queues at the station, trains will be busier than usual, and there are going to be far fewer trains. be busier than usual, and there are going to be farfewer trains. they have got information points here, they have brought in around 10,000 people to offer advice to customers to try to keep things running smoothly. simon, thank you very much indeed,
simon, thank you very much indeed, simonjones live at simon, thank you very much indeed, simon jones live at waterloo simon, thank you very much indeed, simonjones live at waterloo station in london this morning. how do you feel about alligators? don't like them, same as crocodiles, scary! little ones? they grow into big ones! an alligator has been spotted relaxing by a lake in somerset. the two foot long reptile was seen getting out of the water at chew valley reservoir by a bristol water engineer. a spokesman could not confirm the species, but said a staff member "bumped into it" doing a routine survey. it was captured and put into a container ready to be collected by the rspca. it does make you wonder how many others might be around, because people have exotic pets, alligators, snakes. i don't wonder about it at all! veteran long—distance runner jo pavey will be presented
with herfirst world championship medal later today, ten years after competing in the 10,000m in osaka. jo has been upgraded from fourth place after a turkish athlete, who originally won silver, was disqualified for doping offences. we're delighted to sayjo joins us now from the london stadium. jo pavey, so great to have you with us one jo pavey, so great to have you with us one bbc breakfast, good morning to you. how do you feel about getting this medal, yourfirst to you. how do you feel about getting this medal, your first world championship, ten years on? yeah, i am absolutely thrilled and honoured to have the chance to receive the medal in this amazing stadium in front of a home crowd, i feel very grateful to everyone who has made that happen. 0f grateful to everyone who has made that happen. of course, it is a bittersweet moment, when i think back to that moment ten years ago now, when i laid on the track totally exhausted, feeling like i had let my friends and family down and everyone who supported me, tried so desperately hard to maintain a
medal position but could not quite do not. afterwards facing everyone saying, iam do not. afterwards facing everyone saying, i am sorry, i couldn't quite do it on the day, whereas actually it should have been a day of celebrating, being proud to get a medalfor my celebrating, being proud to get a medal for my country, instead of a day of disappointment. but this definitely makes up for it in a great way, i have my family and my children here, who were not born on the day i did my race. what better place to receive it, a home championships? i am very lucky. you are not lucky, you worked hard for it! at the moment, it feels like we can't get away from the issue of doping in athletics, usain bolt said that athletics needs to be concerned if this isn't addressed, yesterday and breakfast we spoke to ed warner on the programme. we are going to play a sound bite of what he said about doping, i would love to get your reaction. in any walk of life, your reaction. in any walk of life, you find cheats around every corner,
2200 athletes here, will all be clean? i doubt it, but are the authorities working hard to read —— root them out? just yesterday two ukrainian sprinters were pulled out. the sport has a fight on its hands, i think it is gradually winning the battle, but it is going to be a long—term process. battle, but it is going to be a long-term process. it is frustrating that this seems to be a long—term process , that this seems to be a long—term process, do think it could be sped up process, do think it could be sped up in any way? i think you are right, it is a long—term process, there are still going to be cheats in the sport, unfortunately, but things are improving. it is fantastic we are having this reallocation of medals, showing that technology is improving, samples can be reanalysed technology is improving, samples can be rea nalysed because technology is improving, samples can be reanalysed because of the improvements in the technology to do that, and cheats can never relax, they know that technology is improving, things are going in the right direction, but unfortunately we are still seeing some performances that you may have to
question, but things are going in the right direction. a few years ago we weren't even talking about doping, but clean athletes were frustrated that nothing was happening, we had to keep facing the media to say we could not do enough on the day, but you had suspicions. at least now clean athletes feel that things are being done, but there is a lot of work to do, but at least things are going in the right direction. it is a great decision that it has been made, reallocating medals on a proper stage. i heard an athlete saying that he got his given ina car athlete saying that he got his given in a car park a few years back, and now they're making a big deal of it, it is good. there is a long way to 90, it is good. there is a long way to go, hopefully we can get a brighter future for the sport. you all the performances last night, how the crowd have got behind it, what a great sport it is, we need to protect that and let it go from strength to strength. we were hearing from the outgoing chairman of uk earlier. let's revel in how
well tea m of uk earlier. let's revel in how well team gb is doing at the moment, shall we? mo farah said this was one of the toughest races of his career, i know i was screaming at the tv when i thought, hold on, people are getting at a go of him, closing in on him. absolutely phenomenal, no—one is good enough to beat him, they try, he can win the race whether it is fast or slow, whether there are surges, and the ugandans and kenyans tried to push the pace, only three seconds off his personal best to win the race. when he is in demand with only a couple of laps to 90, demand with only a couple of laps to go, his rivals no they have not done enough. the whole way round, working the crowd, it was absolutely unbelievable to see how well he performed, just brilliant to see. the crowd were there to watch, and he gets down, phenomenal athlete. jo,
he gets down, phenomenal athlete. jo, tell us what it is like in these davidian, we were talking tojess earlier, it is quite wet, the track conditions are different. —— tell us what it is like in the stadium. what are the preparations? how does it change your way of thinking as weather conditions change? laura muir is competing today, what will our athletes be thinking about? muir is competing today, what will our athletes be thinking abounm seems to be brightening up now, but weather conditions do have a part to play. some athletes like a wet track, i remember haile gebrselassie used to ask for the track to be watered before he did world record attempts, but i never necessarily liked running in the rain. but it does factor into it, a lot of it is in the warm up, making sure you don't get wet and cold. the worst championships weather—wise with the commonwealth games, we were so wet, andi commonwealth games, we were so wet, and i didn't bring a change of socks, but unfortunately the race went out a! the weather conditions
do affect it, it affects preparation, but these athletes are so experienced, and they know how to deal with certain things. when you are talking about the british athletes, that is something we are all really proud of, and the head of british athletics talked about it, it is not just british athletics talked about it, it is notjust about british athletics talked about it, it is not just about what british athletics talked about it, it is notjust about what medals we will get, because we have got so many young athletes in the team, it isa many young athletes in the team, it is a chance for them to be showcased, the next generation coming through, people who will go on to have bright careers and be the stars of the future. and how well they performed yesterday, the three quys they performed yesterday, the three guysin they performed yesterday, the three guys in the 100 metres got through, all the girls in the 1500, people with lifetime bests, and it was a great night for the team. you said it is brightening up, i think it will brighten up just enough so the sun glistens on your bronze medal later today, we wish you well, do enjoy receiving it. thanks for joining us one breakfast.
so nice thatjo is getting the medal in front of athletic fans in the stadium. iwan thomas got upgraded to gold in the world championships, because of a drive failure, and he was given his medal in a car park, not quite making up for it. sojo so jo pavey says sojo pavey says it is to brighten up, but we should listen to jay wynne, find out what it is like for the rest of the country. this picture was taken by one of our weather watchers on merseyside not so long ago, so a mixture of sunny spells and showers, but the showers today could be heavy with the odd rumble of thunder, we have already had some in wales, never particularly warm with the north—westerly breeze. there is some sunshine, a breeze from the north—west, but showers moving from west to east, the midlands, east
anglia, the south—east, rumbles of thunder to go with those, some hail mixed in as well. scattered showers further north, dry, bright intervals, but turning grey at times, rain will follow. in the north—east of england, you're more likely to see some showers, sunshine in the north—west this afternoon. in wales and the south—west, largely dry, good spells of sunshine. the densely heavy showers through the midlands, east anglia, the london area. top temperature of 21 degrees. there is a risk of a shower or two at the london stadium on into the afternoon, drier and brighter spells as well. the showers that we see tend to fade away this evening and overnight, the skies were clear for many, but not in northern ireland, grey on the way, a bit of breeze as well. where we have clear skies, much of scotland, northern england, through wales, we will see temperatures dipping into single figures in the rural parts of
scotland, a touch of brass crossed first thing. cloud amounts will increase through the day, wetter weather to be had in northern ireland, that moves through into scotland, the north—west of england and the north—west of wales, but much of the south—east will hang on to the bright weather into the afternoon. 16 or 17 with rain in glasgow. stays and settled into the early pa rt glasgow. stays and settled into the early part of next week, cloudy at times, but hopefully things will finally settled down later in hopefully, fingers crossed! we all know that pets are priceless, but you might agree that there's something really quite special about one particular feline friend. eight—year—old rescue cat genie has been named national cat of the year after supporting her young owner, evie, through treatment for bone cancer. simon spark has been to meet them. genie is normally an outdoor cat. she will eat if she wants
to and will tell you if she wants to go out. that was until her 12—year—old owner, evie, was diagnosed with bone cancer. then she changed. when i was diagnosed, she was pulling my legs and would sit at my feet, she would gently massage my legs. that was just unheard of. genie is doing her claw thingy on me. it means that she likes me. do you think she knew? i think she did, because she was coming around this leg in particular, which is the one that the cancer was in. oh, you know something's wrong with that leg, don't you? and this is the story that has just won her a national cat aaward. as well as cat of the year, she won 0utstanding rescue pet. it was really good, we had photos taken. it was interview after interview after photo after interview.
it was ace. i guess the judges saw what i see in genie, an amazing cat. every since the diagnosis, she has really been a house cat, sitting at evie's feet, going around her legs. helping around the house, following her, even going to the toilet and going upstairs. it was quite a change in personality. i think she made a massive difference. without her, i would have a lot more dark days, she just gave me that glimpse of hope that i needed to get through this. evie is now finished her course of chemotherapy and is being monitored by the hospital. genie continues to keep a close eye on her as well. you are watching breakfast from bbc news, time to look at the papers.
peter bradshaw is here, good morning to you. you have been taking a look through the papers, playing roulette with people's lives. very good story in the mail, these fixed odds betting terminals, kind of glorified arcade machines, and they have terrifyingly high rates, and you can bet, win, lose hundreds and hundreds of pounds in a few minutes. there was a big controversy of the number of them opening, you can only have a set number in each betting shop, so they were opening more shops. set number in each betting shop, so they were opening more shopslj set number in each betting shop, so they were opening more shops. i have they were opening more shops. i have the rather quaint idea of betting shops, people betting on premiership football or the grand national, but the big—money is in betting shops full of these terminals where real crack cocaine profits are to be made. this excellent story suggests the department of culture, media and
sport wants to get tough with these machines, quite substantially lower the maximum bet to about £2. but the story is that whitehall, in particular the chancellor, doesn't like this idea, simply because of the tax take from these things. if thatis the tax take from these things. if that is true, that is an extraordinary admission, really, because as they say, these are hard—core gambling machines. these are people who are gambling with money that they don't have, frankly. and so it is very, very worrying. i think it is a good story. inside that matter which paper is this? in the telegraph, i don't use siri, i switched and off, but i was with a friend, it is amazing what he was doing with it in the car, getting it to play songs. this is a new addiction, not in my life, but for a lot of people, these talking
butlers. but you are embarrassed to do it in public, apple's siri, amazon's alexa, you can speak to them, and they will literally speak back, but people are increasingly embarrassed to do so in public. it has become the dirty little secret, people are embarrassed to say, siri, could you tell me what is the european union? they will say embarrassing things, and we are an barrister talked to our little friends, and people will lock themselves in their car and say, siri, tell me about this thing. so they are embarrassed about what they need to know, not talking to it?|j think they are embarrassed to say, siri, something so silly about using its name. at least when you type into google, you just type in the thing you need to know, but saying, siri, mild friend, you look so silly. it has become a dysfunctional
mannerism to stop and lock yourself away, siri, please tell me! one last one, i don't know how often you eat oysters, i have only had them once, with matt tebbutt, in saturday kitchen, who is coming up in a minute. very high risk, isn't it? do you like oysters? seafood doesn't agree with me. it is something you are quite cautious about, only eat it when it is properly prepared. are quite cautious about, only eat it when it is properly preparedm france, there is a new type of vending machine, notjust cigarettes or chocolate, but oysters, a machine on ile de re, you put your money in, and they are putting fresh oysters in. it is as good a place as any. i am not sure if this is on a coil, like mars bars, you put your money
m, like mars bars, you put your money in, klug, it lands with a crash. i am terrified of oysters anyway, but the idea of getting them from a vending machine, book yourself two weeks in hospital! they are high risk, and the first time, the only time was with matt tebbutt, shall we get is opinion? peter, thank you so much. you are taking over at ten o'clock, matt, would you go to a vending machine for oysters to be no, not unless i wanted to lose weight! it might be useful, then! that is not very nice! i was going to compliment you on your glasses today! i would stay well away from that! on with the show, our special guest today has escaped her chains in game of thrones, the brilliant actress, gemma whelan, are you excited, you watch the show, don't you? i do watch, yes. by mum was
watching, hello! one of the few things she can watch you in! she does boldly watch everything i do. you are facing food heaven or food hell. heaven would be trout, prawns, coriander, coconut, please! help? i can barely say it, cook dabbles, creamy, fruity pudding deserts. and this is not a pregnancy thing. this isa this is not a pregnancy thing. this is a long—standing problem!|j this is not a pregnancy thing. this is a long-standing problem! i don't think you can cure me of my problem with cooked apples. first time on saturday kitchen for animal macro.|j am doing marinated monkfish cheeks. and dan doherty, what can we look forward to? and don't forget, you quys forward to? and don't forget, you guys at home are in charge of
weather for you, but let's bring we will have all the sport and weatherfor you, but let's bring the up—to—date with this morning's news. mo farah has been celebrating his win in last night's10,000 metres at the world championships, describing it as one of the toughest races of his career. the sa—year—old, who is due to retire from the track at the end of this season, has now won ten global titles in a row. earlier in the evening, usain bolt also began the defence of his 100 metre title, as he competes for the last time. prosecutors have told a court in las vegas that a british computer expert has admitted creating software that steals bank details. marcus hutchins, aged 23 and from devon, will plead not guilty. he was praised earlier this year for helping to limit a global cyber attack that brought down several nhs computer networks. he'll appear in court next tuesday. the irish prime minister leo varadkar continues his first official visit to northern ireland today. he'll attend a pride
event in belfast later. yesterday he focused on brexit, suggesting that a bilateral customs union could be the best way for the uk to deal with the issue of northern ireland's border with the republic, describing brexit as the challenge of this generation. the united states has officially informed the united nations that it's withdrawing from the paris climate agreement. injune, president donald trump drew international condemnation when he announced the decision to leave the agreement — it had been drawn up by nearly 200 nations to curb greenhouse gas emissions in 2015. the state department says the us will continue to participate in climate change meetings until the withdrawal process is completed. millions of rail passengers are facing up to three weeks of disruption as work to update the uk's busiest train station gets under way today. an £800 million revamp will close ten platforms at london waterloo station to prepare for longer trains and create extra space for passengers. the work is due to be finished at the end of august. after record breaking temperatures
across europe this week, scientists are warning that the number of people killed by extreme weather conditions could increase 50—fold by the end of this century. a study in the lancet planetary health journal suggests that heatwaves alone could account for 100,000 deaths a year. researchers in italy say urgent action is needed to curb the effects of climate change. a staffordshire butcher says he has made a friend for life after rescuing a stray lamb with a broken leg. sean landy found lily the lamb shivering in a hedge near his farm in audley last week. barely a week old, she's now moved in with the sheepdogs in the kitchen. mr landy‘s confirmed that lily definitely isn't going to end up on a plate.
i suspect lily will be ruling the roost and the sheepdogs will be doing exactly as she says before long. those are the main stories this morning. after a thrilling opening night at the athletics world championships, let's find out what's in store for fans today. jess is at the london stadium for us this morning. what a privilege it is to be here at the london stadium. final preparations are getting underway. less tha n preparations are getting underway. less than 30 minutes until it all kicks off again. the fans are taking their seats. how lucky for them that they have tickets to an action packed day. so many brits for them to be cheering on. usain bolt will be back on the track and katarina johnson thompson will be taking her place on the start line for the hundred and ten —— for the 100
metres hurdle. let me remind you of what a magical day in the stadium it was last night. mo farah was back in the stadium where his feats made him a household name. five years on from his double 0lympic triumph in london, he won the 10,000 metres world title for the third time. it was a tough race, he held off a determined challenge from his rivals and survived a couple of stumbles on a blistering final lap before winning it with his trademark sprint to the line. you gave us a scare going around the bend, tripping twice and stepping out of your lane. you had blood there as well! a couple of bruises, i am all right. you know what it is like to double up, you have four days for the 5000 metres. you have to go through a hit for that one. how do you do that now, block this out or enjoy it
for a bit? yes, you have to block it out. it is a moment that is done now, i have to get back to the basics. eat, sleep, rest. that is what it takes if i want to come back for the 5k. ijust have to take care of my body. the crowd had already been treated to usain bolt‘s first appearance at his final championships before he retires. he recovered from a dreadful start to win his 100—metres heat and reach the semi—finals, but he wasn't happy with his run or the starting blocks. i am not really fond of these blocks. i think they are the worst blocks i have experienced. i have to get this together. i have to get the start together, i can't keep doing this. what is it about the block in particular? it is shaky. when i did my warm up, it pushed back and fell back and it's not what i am used to. it is not as sturdy or as firm as what i am used to. reece prescod ran a personal best to reach the semi—finals
in his first world championships — he said he loved being in front of a home crowd. in fact all three british sprinters made it through, so we'll see prescod, james desaolu and cj ujah on the track again this evening. also in action will be laura muir, who was inspired to take her athletics career to the next level when she watched london 2012 on television. she goes in the 1,500 metres semi—finals, along with jess judd, laura weightman and sarah mcdonald. joe pavey says it is bittersweet receiving her medal ten years after the fact. she spoke earlier about the fact. she spoke earlier about theissue the fact. she spoke earlier about the issue of doping being tackled. things are going in the right
direction whereas a few years ago the clean athletes were frustrated that nothing was happening. we had to keep facing the media and we felt disappointed because there were suspicions. at least now clean athletes feel that things are being done, but there was a long way to go there was a lot of to do. now, let's look at the rest of the sport — and it's delicately balanced after day one of the fourth and final test against south africa at old trafford. england captainjoe root made a half—century for his 10th test match in a row — and ben stokes hit 58, but he was outjust before the close. england will resume later this morning on 260 for 6. well, you always want 400 in the first innings of any test match. i think, having lost benjust at the close, if we can get 350 i think we would take that right now. 350 plus, definitely, you always want to try to get. maybe that last wicket might knock a few off it. paris st—germain fans will have to wait a little longer before

i'm in west london with these young people who have seen the stars on the screen and now they are going to try the sport up for themselves. who better to give some tips than a european gold medallist. you can meet new friends from the estate that they probably would not have met on a normal day and something like this encourages and to communicate with each other, make it fun and enjoyable. what kind of activities have we got going on today? i saw some javelin throwing and they seemed pretty good at it. we have relays going on. we had a hurdle relay earlier which i took part in. did they beat you? most of them did. they are quick kids. as you can see, they have the baton which is teaching them to do the relay properly from grassroots so by the time they are seniors or teenagers they will have the key
skills to be part of a relay team. these world championships will see some of the biggest stars in athletics competing on the track and there is none bigger than mo farah and usain bolt. it is important. normally what happens is they might watch the olympics and watch usain bolt and mo farah and there's nowhere for them to go and they forget about it until four years later when we have another olympics or world championships. we wanted to capture the spirit at the right time. sometimes we need projects like this to bring people together. these lot are eight years old and will probably be friends for life from this. they might go on to take part in athletics and do well, but more than that, it is creating somewhere locally where they can take part. why do you keep coming back to be sessions? because the sessions are really fun. i like doing running and athletics. why? because it gets me pumped
and if i am sad, it puts me back up again. they have tried athletics for themselves and now they will be able to watch the pros in action live at the world championships through this project and who knows how many will be able to go on and emulate their heroes. so important that legacy is created from sport events like this. here, the hurdles are being put out and katarina thomsonjohnson will soon be beginning herfirst event in katarina thomsonjohnson will soon be beginning her first event in the women's heptathlon. day two is about to get underway. it certainly is. thank you, jess. well as we've been hearing it's a busy saturday at the world athletics championships with 18 events at the london stadium. here's a quick look ahead to some of the moments you won't want to miss. jessica ennis hill.
she is now living and training in france, but can she win her first senior heptathlon events on british soil? 0ne one in brazil last summer. she earned bronze. but the lancashire a ptly earned bronze. but the lancashire aptly be able to put her competitors ina spin aptly be able to put her competitors in a spin and replicate that success. usain bolt will complete his last individual event. he qualified in the first heat in which he said it was far from his best, blaming the starting blocks. can he deliver the show stopping performance that we have come to expect from him? there is coverage from 9:30am on bbc two and then from ten o'clock on bbc one. if you're still to go on your summer holiday or you know someone who is travelling home this weekend, be warned — there could be delays
at some airports across europe. british airways, easyjet and ryanair, have sent text messages to passengers, warning them to be at the airport up to three hours early to avoid missing theirflight. lengthy queues were reported earlier this week at airports in france, spain, portugal, italy, croatia and greece, where enhanced security checks combined with high volumes of passengers have been causing disruption. joining us now is the independent‘s travel editor simon calder. good morning, simon. why three hours, four hours? what exactly are they waiting for? this is nothing to do with leaving the uk or coming back to the uk, although the airport will be super busy this weekend. tomorrow is heathrow‘s busiest day. this is to do with a wall change came into effect in april in the
schengen area. we need enhanced passport checks. last if you are flying from manchester to alicante, you got off the plane, waved your passport vaguely at the official and they would say, you are on holiday. now everyone needs to be checked against european data bases, now everyone needs to be checked against european databases, so you are getting long waits going into places like spain, but if you are leaving, and this is where we have seen problems, you could find by the time you have got to be security and passport check, your plane has gone without you. what happens then? if you miss your plane then i'm afraid you're probably going to be stuck. no compensation? certainly no compensation. the insurers have said there has been a lot of publicity
about this and it is hardly an unexpected event and we won't you any compensation. the airlines will often let you reschedule and they might charge you for it, but planes are flying 99% fall at the moment, so seats aren't available. everyone wa nts to so seats aren't available. everyone wants to get to the front and you will get some cue combing going on. are they doing that when you are queueing up to check in? it's happening in parma. you go through security and then you have a long crocodile of people waiting to get through passport control to get to the gates going to the uk. they will come along and say, who is going to birmingham and they will take you through. lots of questions. tony in venice says we got to venice airport
three hours early. the easyjet check—in desks don't open until two hours beforehand, so he is cross. ryanair in hours beforehand, so he is cross. rya nair in barcelona hours beforehand, so he is cross. ryanair in barcelona are opening three hours ahead. in alicante some airlines are opening three and a half hours earlier. john travelling to alicante got through in 15 minutes. you just can't tell. he is sitting around buying overpriced coffee and this time yesterday he could have been stuck in a queue. u nless could have been stuck in a queue. unless you are lucky to sit in a business or executive lounge you are in the main area and you can't get a seat. jack says what about people who are less able to stand and walk around? it means aviation is not possible for us. if we have two shuttle along in the queue for an hour, we will stop flying. 0bviously
there are some places where you get good fast track for people who need special attention, that the problem as you say is every traveller for themselves, unfortunately. not great, is it? problems in barcelona which are nothing to do with that. ina which are nothing to do with that. in a word? security strikes there on fridays, sundays and mondays. thank you, simon. the simple answer is that go stay at home. is it worth it? is the son going to be out? —— is the sun going to be out? a mixed bag this weekend. the showers could be heavy and we have had rumbles of thunder. the showers
are moving from wales to the midlands, is angry and the south east. the north—west of england and the far west are doing quite well. scotla nd the far west are doing quite well. scotland and northern ireland will see drier and brighter intervals, but the cloud will build up and we will see some showers. the north—west has a good chance of seeing lent the dry spells. scattered showers as well across wales, but along the south coast of wales, but along the south coast of wales and into the south—west of england we have good spells of sunshine. scattered showers through the midlands and east anglia. risk of rain at the london stadium, but there will be dry spells as well. this evening the showers will fade away and this ridge of high pressure will come in. there will be wet weather tonight across northern ireland. ahead of that it will turn chilly. in rural areas we could see
single figures. chilly start to sunday, but a bright one further the eastern side of the uk. many eastern areas will hold onto weather. early rain in northern ireland will push into scotland in the north—west of england and the north—west of wales. ahead of that, a decent over the midlands and eastern england. 22 degrees with light winds is not too bad. early next week it looks fairly u nsettled. bad. early next week it looks fairly unsettled. rain and showers around and it will be breezy as well. however, later next week things will start to settle down. at 93, reg buttress from south wales is thought to be britain's oldest supermarket worker. now, after more than 30 years in his currentjob he's decided it's finally time to retire.
this isn't the first time he's hung up his apron though. he first stopped working at the age of 65, but lasted just six weeks before asking for his old job back! 0ur correspondent tomos morgan went to meet him ahead of his final shift. this is reg buttress. not your average 93—year—old. but his customers and colleagues love him. he retired once at 65, just a few years into his time at sainsbury‘s. his retirement only lasted a few weeks. i look forward to coming here to meet people. i look forward to it. after working at the supermarket for over 35 years, next month, when he turns 94, why will he finally pack it all in? i need to do some jobs in the summer. itjust isn't fair to the family.
he has had five different careers during his life, starting like many others in the mines. after working for 80 years, his work ethic and commitment to the job is still as strong as ever. he loves it, he loves being here. he loves hisjob. i don't know what i'll do when he's not doing it. believed to be the oldest shop worker in britain, i don't know what he'll do when he's not doing it. believed to be the oldest shop worker in britain, reg is 75 years older than the youngest worker in this store. it is clear his enthusiasm rubs off on shoppers and colleagues alike. he's a lovely man. beautiful. a beautiful soul. yes, everyone likes to meet and greet him, always stop for a chat. i will miss them, the people, the customers. many have known reg since they were children, and they will be just as sad as he will be next month when he finally calls it a day. do you think you could be doing this
