9:30 am
' in the day, another was. later in the day, another bridge of pressure moves in. once we get into wednesday, a veil of cloud moves in from the west, eventually robbing us of the sunshine, and the west finishes the day rather wet and windy. take care. goodbye. hello again, you are watching bbc news with me, ben brown. it isjust after 9:30am. a 20—year—old man has been charged with murder after a 20—year—old man has been charged with murder one person has been killed and over 30 others injured during violent clashes between far—right activists and counter protestors at a white nationalist rally in the city of charlottesville, virginia. the chancellor philip hammond and international trade secretary liam fox have said that any brexit transition deal would be "time limited" and would not be a "back door" to the uk remaining in the eu. transport secretary chris grayling has said that by next year, learner drivers will be able to have lessons on motorways, in a bid to improve road safety. and you've been sending
9:31 am
in your pictures after last night saw hundreds of shooting stars light up the sky, as the perseid meteor shower reached its peak. coming up in a few minutes, our sunday morning edition of the papers — this morning's reviewers are david wooding of the sun on sunday, and the writer and broadcaster shyama perera. before the papers — sport and a full round up from the bbc sport centre. thank you. good morning. it's the final day of action at the world athletics championships in london. it follows a remarkable night on the track with more medals for great britain including an historic gold in the men's four by four—hundred metre relay. but there was no fairytale finish to the career of the great usain bolt. lets cross live to the london stadium where we can join jessica creighton. good morning. what a night! good
9:32 am
morning. absolutely. everyone expecting a great night from surrey mo farah and usain bolt but it was for young british men who stole the limelight. after all the hype, both usain bolt, and sir mo farah missed out on the golden goodbye they were hoping for here at the london stadium. the british team of c] ujah, adam gemili and danny talbot had put nethaneel mitchell—bla ke in a fantastic position for the final leg — bolt, who was running the anchor leg forjamaica, pulled up injured... while mitchell—blake held off america's christian coleman to win britain's second gold of the championships. the crowd erupted to celebrate a truly fantastic performance. ididn't i didn't really know what to do with myself, i couldn't really conceptualise the celebration, so happy for these guys, the crowd,
9:33 am
they stayed 45 minutes after we finished running so we could do a lap of honour. i got lost in the moment. it was great fun, something that i will cherish for the rest of my life. being a world championships one thing but being a world champion in your back garden, that's one thing not many people can brag about but i can do that. we may never see his like again but it wasn't the way bolt would have wanted to end his glittering career. it wasn't quite the farewell to a major track championships either that great britain's sir mo farah would have hoped for — the four time olympic champion will compete in a couple more track races before switching to running marathons. but this was his last chance to win another gold medal and he gave it everything in the 5000 metres. but ethiopian‘s muktar edris did what farah usually
9:34 am
does to the opposition. the briton just didn't have enough left in his legs after defending his 10000 metres title. he signed off with a silver medal, and happy to share the moment with his family. it's very special, the time they we re it's very special, the time they were in mummy‘s tummy and now to see them as they girls, two of them grown up, them as they girls, two of them grown up, it's been incredible. doesn't quite hit back until you compete here, finally, after crossing the line and having a couple of minutes to myself, i realise this is it. the better man won on the day, i gave it all. i didn't have a single but left at the end. there was another silver medal for the british team in the women's four by 100 metres relay. a thrilling run by the british quartet of asha philip, desiree henry, dina asher—smith and daryll neita. the 100 metres world
9:35 am
champion tori bowie anchored the usa to a gold medal. defending champions jamaica were third. to do it at our home stadium is like, is something that we hadn't planned. we are so proud of ourselves. it was electric, the moment we were announced, you could feel and hear the roar of the crowd and stadium and it got you really wa nt and stadium and it got you really want up. you not only wanted to do well for yourself but at that point it was, let's do well for the whole nation! no such medal success for britain in the high jump though. both katarina johnson thompson and morgan lake cleared 1 metre 95, but it was only good enough for them to finish in fifth and sixth place respectively. the race walking is under way ready
9:36 am
outside the stadium. the great britain teams will be in action here in the track, can they match the exploits of the sprint relay team—mates? can they win medals? jessica, thank you. we will keep you up—to—date with all of the athletics action. away from the athletics there was plenty going on in the premier league as well. on the first weekend of the new season, defending champions chelsea were beaten by burnley, while newly promoted huddersfield town sit at the top of the table. ben croucher has the best of the action... so, how many of you expected to be waking up with huddersfield leading the premier league this morning? well, that is what you have got. no fluke, either. a diamond display at crystal palace, in their first top—flight game since 1972.
9:37 am
three for huddersfield, and a dream start to their premier league chapter. for burnley, there was delight, there was disbelief, and a deserved three points as well, stunning the champions in their own backyard. three first—half goals condemned nine—man chelsea to a brutal defeat. on the south coast, the seagulls had soared into the premier league, but brighton's home game capsized. sergio aguero on target, in a 2—0 win. liverpool fans will have to keep their heads up. they were heading for victory, but miguel britos's injury—time equaliser salvaged a 3—3 draw. and, at goodison park, there was only one name on everyone's lips. it's rooney! 13.5 years since his last competitive goal for everton, wayne rooney scored the winner against stoke. we know the name. wayne rooney! the big result in the scottish
9:38 am
premiership was stjohnstone beating motherwell 4—1 — that result put them top of the table on goals scored, just ahead of champions celtic. elsewhere there were wins for hamilton, hearts, hibs and aberdeen. kevin kisner is leading the us pga championship going into today's final round. the american is looking to win his first major title and has a one—shot lead after three rounds at quail hollow. england's paul casey had a poor end to his day dropping back to level par but remains the highest placed british player, seven shots off the lead. that's all the sport. now on bbc news here's ben brown with the papers. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers
9:39 am
say this morning. with me are david wooding of the sun on sunday and the writer and broadcaster shyama perera. good morning and thank you both some at her being with us. let's take a look at what the front pages have. the violence in charlottesville happened too late to catch most of the sunday papers, but lets look at the front pages. the telegraph reports cabinet will pledge the uk's commitment to leave the single market and custom union after brexit — after a summer of infighting over the issue. former labour minister david miliband enters the brexit debate in the observer — as he calls for another vote on how the uk leaves the eu. the mail on sunday says the prime minister is to apologise to tory supporters in a bid to save herjob. model chloe ayling, who says she was kidnapped in italy, also shares her full story in the paper. the sunday times has
9:40 am
more on measures to stop a dip in exam results — following tougher gcse and a—levels this year. the paper also carries a photo of mo farah, who just missed out on a golden goodbye at the world athletics championship last night. let's kick off with the sunday telegraph, so much apparent disunity within the cabinet on brexit. philip hammond and the others arguing but now there seems to be perhaps a degree of unanimity? yes, peace has broken out in the cabinet over brexit! two of the fiercest opponents inside the cabinet on brexit, liam fox, the international trade secretary who is a devout brexiteer and philip hammond, a die—hard remainder, have written a joint article for the sunday telegraph saying we are singing from the same hymn sheet, singing with
9:41 am
one voice, the view is there will be an interim concessional period, they don't say how long it is, crucially, but after that it will be a full brexit which will involve leaving the single market, leaving the customs union and removing britain from thejurisdiction of customs union and removing britain from the jurisdiction of the european court of justice. from the jurisdiction of the european court ofjustice. they have agreed on that and this has removed that element of what philip hammond was dry to do... does that mean he has lost the debate? it seems to me like it's a bit of a compromise. liam fox clearly did not want a transitional period of any sort, he thought it will be what will be dubbed a cliff edge in march 2019. philip hammond once this transitional period seen by the other side as remaining by the back door. he has accepted that must be a transition period but for a limited period, but we don't know how long. that is the key, how long is the
9:42 am
transition? philip hammond. thing about up to three years. transition? philip hammond. thing about up to three yearslj transition? philip hammond. thing about up to three years. i would have thought that was a sensible amount of time. i think they probably bought it down to 18 months, two years. it also says over the next ten days as we get new proposals coming through it is understood theresa may will offer free movement to irish citizens in and out of britain so that sounds like the irish prime ministers will get his answer at last to what is the plan. there is a sort of schengen area between ireland and great britain? there has been since the 19205. great britain? there has been since the 1920s. people who are a little bit younger than i will not remember life before the european union when in fact, britain and the republic of ireland had already eight schengen style deal, the forefather of schengen. even during the troubles, you could dry across, you would get
9:43 am
stuffed by british troops to wanted to know where you were going and what you were doing, the hard bit will be getting from northern ireland over to the mainland. but of course northern ireland, sorry, the republic of ireland is not part of schengen anyway, so it won't make that much difference, i think people will and are making too much of it. let's look at the observer, we mentioned david miliband, who lost out to his brother ed for the labour leadership and is now in america. he has some things to say about brexit. he's been praising philip hammond, he says i never thought i would say this but philip hammond is also playing an important, even valiant role, the transition of the county advocates is vital. perhaps we should have done this before the telegraph what he's advocating we are now learning from the telegraph has been agreed in two loose way. we have remained voters and leave vote rs have remained voters and leave voters coming together to stayed
9:44 am
there should be a transition period, dependent on how long it will be but david miliband, obviously, is massively against brexit. and you know, no doubt would support any kind of anti brexit parties should there be one but it's quite interesting, he has almost foreseen what was going to be said this weekend and said he approves of that. there has been quite a lot of talk of office bring, about setting up talk of office bring, about setting upa new talk of office bring, about setting up a new anti brexit political party, what do you hear? allegedly a couple of cabinet investors who were talking about, we don't know who they are, wanting to be in this new centre party cold the democrats who strangely, don't want to accept the democratic will of the people in a referendum! inevitably speculation that david miliband wants to be part of this but i think that but has felt for him, he mist out on the labour leadership, not even an mp but he could be a spokesperson for a
9:45 am
new sort of, all party soft brexit. he's not putting himself forward enough. he seems to respond but when someone enough. he seems to respond but when someone asks him for an opinion he is reluctant to give one. i don't get the sense of entrusting himself back into politics. it's a great shame to have lost, he was a big player and could have gone on to great things. let's talk about the mail on sunday, theresa may, back to work this week after her walking holiday. talking about how she is going to make a grovelling apology at the conservative party conference for losing the corona's majority at the election, catastrophic destruction. she will make this before her big speech, normally wednesday lunchtime, she will make on the sunday, probably on prime—time television, it is mea culpa. i am sorry, is this a latin
9:46 am
lesson? i was much too slow. it's got shades of tony blair in 2003 when the iraq war, he was under a lot of pressure and he did what was dubbed the masochism strategy, he went out and met a load of relatives of those who had been killed or injured in the iraq war to try and show his sorrow about what had happened. there is a feeling there isa happened. there is a feeling there is a little bit of that and what theresa may was planning to do and she has to go through that because there is no doubt this conference will set the tone for ever she goes next. isn't this a statement of the obvious? obviously she's going to have to apologise, she really messed up have to apologise, she really messed up and she cannot keep pulling the wool over this, i know she keeps going on walking holidays, i note that you went on one. i don't know what exciting... but you know... for
9:47 am
goodness' sake, this is october, what will happen between now and october? after the election people said she could maybe only last a few days, she is still there. she will last a feud months. she's only there because they want to be there, nobody who wants the wants to take over the entry that she has at the moment. they want her to sort out the mess. does that mean she stays until after brexit? that is the ideal scenario, most of the possible runners want her to sort rakes it out and for them to breeze in and ta ke out and for them to breeze in and take over in time for the next election. it will be breathing in and taking over it will be cleaning up and taking over it will be cleaning up witha and taking over it will be cleaning up with a very large dustpan and brush, wanted? do you think if she does this mea culpa, does that in some way help her, does it take the sting out of the wind? she's done, said it on television to the nation, said it on television to the nation, said it on television to the nation, said it took cabinet but this is... and i think she said it to the 1922
9:48 am
backbench mps. it is the first time she will of met the party faithful, the activists, and they feel betrayed. it's like raising children, david. ishouldn't betrayed. it's like raising children, david. i shouldn't have to tell you to say sorry, you should naturally have said sorry, that's what you teach children. second is you not understand that sorry is not enough, iwant you not understand that sorry is not enough, i want you to change your behaviour? stop doing the same thing and say sorry to time, change behaviour, it right. you hit on a good point, the other view that by making this big pronouncement on sunday she will show the witness which is that she failed to win a majority and she will draw attention to that. the sunday times, a-level results week this week. they are saying schools fear chaos over tough a—levels. the marks required to secure top grades in the first
9:49 am
supposedly tougher new gce a—level exams have them lowered to avert a dramatic fall in results. then! let's find a stick with which to beat, they are not beating the system, they are beating the teenagers getting their results. so you got a grade a but you are not as smart as your previous cohort. i have had two children go through this, the exams are tough and party they are tough because they are so unstructured these days. children are learning asian workers board of information instead of a structure, catered meal with a starter, main course catered meal with a starter, main course and a pudding and actually, they are... i am getting very confused by the analogies. there is no structure to how they are taught. one might say they don't learn very much, it's not to say it's hard,
9:50 am
it's harder because there is no logic to how they are taught by the way they are taught. it's much harder for them to get good grades learning and see —— and easy syllabus, that's the bizarre thing. it's all about michael gove when he was education secretary, toughening them up, they are worried they will be so tough that few people will reach the grades. but there has to bea reach the grades. but there has to be a balance. there is an argument about inflation in grades, the university of surrey, wasn't it, giving 40% of their students first. the trouble is when you start making education everything, it means that people are going to plate that system. the sunday telegraph again and the athletics and a dramatic picture of mo farah, the world championships ending in a disappointment, he only got silver, it is only because we are used in get involved, white and emotional moment. the first time since 2011,
9:51 am
let's not forget, that he has failed to win any major championship. he took defeat with great grace to the ethiopian and the crowd were behind him and gave him a great sendoff. it's the same with usain bolt, we ta ke it's the same with usain bolt, we take for granted the fact he is going to get gold and then when he does and it's a shock. i imagine oxford psychologists will write about this. i wonder if knowing this is the last took something of the confidence? or maybe they were overconfident. he did give it is all, he really gave it his all, he didn't have that... and he's been an amazing ambassador for british sport in general, reddish athletics. and for immigrants who have come here and become part of the culture and national heritage. it's been a great championships, because of the sort of twists and turns... i understand
9:52 am
our relay team weren't, from watching bbc news, which was the third fastest ever time. they did indeed. one last story, here are, the sun on sunday. inside, extraordinary, a medical story about a man who had a forced own tumour in his stomach. it was extraordinary, they removed everything including parts of his abdominal wall, his small towel, has large bowl, his pancreas, ten organs removed small towel, has large bowl, his pancreas, ten organs removed and he isa pancreas, ten organs removed and he is a well man. it isjust extraordinary. david and i said when we looked at this, we didn't know there were ten removable organs. there can't be much of his body left. he had six transplants, the great thing is this guy is so grateful to the oxford unit, he ran a race to run —— raise money for the
9:53 am
transplant. i was at a dinner party the other night, someone who had donated a kidney to his stepson who was now recovering after five weeks, doing very well in his 205. and we found 5ix doing very well in his 205. and we found six people within our circle who all were tested and were happy to donate a kidney and you forget that this is happening because there are people like you and me who are 5aying, do you know what, i can help you with this and it just forces you to think about donating organ5 you with this and it just forces you to think about donating organs and thing5 to think about donating organs and things after death or even while alive. and it also shows the extraordinary advances in medical technology that something like this is possible. yes, very important. this man was given 18 months to live, a tumour which was a stone in weight removed from his stomach and the organs removed, chemotherapy and he's now been given merely a clean bill of health. a good news story to
9:54 am

9:55 am
let's check out the latest weather. i have been liberated from my earlier studio to see the glory of the day and it's looking really stupendous. very glad to say it was actually clear last night for the greater part of the country and weather watchers as ever were out in force to capture the overnight glory is and here in keswick, just standing out in that glorious sunshine. all of the above courtesy of this area of high pressure, clearing the sky is very nicely. this was the scene from just a short time ago, speckled cloud from the word go across the north and north—west of scotland, this is the area that will see the bulk of the showers today. you get the sense on
9:56 am
the big picture on if i need to say anything else, a lot of try and find weather. more in the way of showers across the northern isles, the western isles, the northern half —— half of scotland. northern ireland, a little bit more cloud after a beautiful start, again just a passing shower. possibly the extent of that across the higher ground of wales into the south—west, else worked try and find weather, cloud developing, would stop your fun, possibly a high of 2a degrees. lovely weather, what a contrast to wednesday, we were at the olympic centre, an absolute deluge but a great night had by all. i am sure eve ryo ne great night had by all. i am sure everyone did. not so great, monday, scotla nd everyone did. not so great, monday, scotland increasing, northern ireland, the first part of the day, western fringes of england, much of wales, the chance of some rain, things turning chari, some of them
9:57 am
sharp across northern ireland later. not so much in the way of rain further east but it will cloud up, no overt near as glorious as today. that area of low pressure taking time to push on through the british isles but eventually, working their way through and tuesday, shaping up to bea way through and tuesday, shaping up to be a day sunny spells and across the british isles. make the most of that and the dry weather that comes through in the first part of wednesday. gangs to that little ridge of high pressure, a bit like today, robert lee a bit more cloud, weather fronts lurking in the atlantic, eventually pushing that cloud and rain further east across the edition isles and a top temperature of 22 degrees. phil, thank you. that's all from me, continuing coverage on all the top stories in the bbc news channel. from us, goodbye. this is bbc news. i'm ben brown.
