brexit and the british living in the eu after brexit as nonsense and felt it should have been sorted more quickly. so that decided the argument abouting with tough on britain, sticking to the timetable. a document of draft coninclusions will be put before eeu leaders next week, there were talks about that. but it strikes an optimistic note, saying that michel barnier, the eu chief negotiator and officials should start internal presentations amongst the eu to talk about trade. to move from the tricky divorce issues about money and citizens' rights on to the issue of trade, the future relationship and transition deal. we will find out what the eu leaders decide, as it is they who decide, that will be a week today. more than 30 people are now known to have died, with hundreds more still missing, in what's been recorded as the most lethal fire in california's history. thousands of firefighters have been called out to deal with more than 20 fires,

1:09 pm
it was close. it was really close. i called my daughter and i told her, "if i don't see you again, remember i love you." at least 20 fires are still raging. 8,000 firefighters are working around the clock to contain them. difficult, dangerous work. evacuation orders are in place, and there's a strong message for those who ignore them. your choice to stay, and there have been very few of them, is a distraction to ourfirst responders. you will not be given life safety support at this point. you are on your own. this is what awaits anyone hoping to ride it out — a hellish inferno consuming everything in its path, filling the air with choking black smoke. most did get out in time, but recovery teams are still searching the rubble for those who simply can't be found.
1:10 pm
many of those killed are said to be elderly people for whom escape was more difficult. identification is going to be hard. so far in the recoveries we have found bodies that were almost completely intact, and we have found bodies that were nothing more than ash and bones. after an unusually hot summer, california is a tinderbox, and more high winds are expected this weekend, leaving more neighbourhoods wondering whether they, too, will end up like this. richard lister, bbc news. let's speak to greg mills from cbs news, he's in santa rosa in northern california. and it seems the weather conditions with wind and humidity — will serve only to heighten the threat? no, in fact, no, infact, since no, in fact, since the beginning this has been a wind—driven fire. sunday the most vicious winds, doing
1:11 pm
the most damage. it raised through here in santa rosa, this home levelled, every home on the block burnt down, as you see, block after block after block of homes burnt down. most of the damage was done on sunday night into monday morning with the vicious winds pushing the fire in this direction, through sa nta fire in this direction, through santa rosa. craig, thank you from cbs news. the united states has unveiled a new strategy on iran — aimed at neutralising what it calls tehran's aggression and support for terrorism. the document says washington will deny iran all paths to nuclear weapons. president trump is expected to withdraw his support from the international nuclear deal with tehran later today. 0ur diplomatic correspondent james robbins is here. so what is the president expected to say? we fully expect the president to withdraw his grudging previous endorsement of this international deal with iran, with effectively
1:12 pm
prevents it from developing a nuclear power for at least 10 or 15 yea rs, nuclear power for at least 10 or 15 years, an agreement that donald trump always hated as it was agreed with barack trump always hated as it was agreed with ba rack 0bama trump always hated as it was agreed with barack 0bama in 2015. it does not mean he is ripping up the deal, he is not doing that but putting the onus on congress but he is not asking them to do it, and there is no certainty that they would go there. this is alarming to the united states closest allies, britain, france, germany, all parties to the agreement, especially when coupled with what else donald trump will say, to accusing iran of malline activities, supporting terrorism, supporting the atrocities committed by syria's president, assad. he wants serious action and britain, france and germany are worried about how iran may react to this, they think that the nuclear
1:13 pm
deal is worth protecting. thank you. if the mental health trust covering norfolk and suffolk has been put into special measures for a second time, because of concerns about patient safety. in a report, inspectors said the number of serious incidents remained high, and staff had failed to learn from patient deaths. norfolk and suffolk is only mental health trust in england to have been put into special measures. here's our health correspondent, sophie hutchinson. the norfolk and suffolk mental health trust, putting patients at risk. a year ago taking out of special measures but today put back infor special measures but today put back in forfailing to special measures but today put back in for failing to address serious safety issues. pippa believes her son would still be alive had he been properly cared for. henry, an art student, was found by the police, peering over a bridge. he said he wanted to die. he was taken into hospital at the trust but discharged when he said he felt better. five days later, henry

hanged himself. pippa said that the hospital should have realised that he was at risk. the whole family was devastated. he was my only son. i cannot begin to describe how i feel, other than i feel i have been completely robbed of the future i had planned for the last 21 years with my son. since 2013, the number of unexpected and avoidable deaths at the trust has doubled. in a damning report, the inspectors said it was not learning from the patient deaths. that the number of serious incidents we re that the number of serious incidents were high, and services unsafe due to staff shortages and high case loads and patients struggling to access crisis care. the trust's chief executive, michael scott announced his retirement earlier in the year. the trust says that it has begun urgent work to address the inspector's concerns. we are
1:15 pm
inspector's concerns. we a re really inspector's concerns. we are really disappointed but determined to address the recommendations and the things we have to do to get it right. when the trust was taken from special measures, many patients and families warned it had not improved. today, the questions are asked about whether or not the inspectors acted too hastily. we took the decision, pace based on what we found at the time. what we saw then was a service improving and our anticipation and hope was that it would continue to improve. so we are very disappointed. inspectors say that they will be keeping a close eye on the trust, and if it does not improve safety for patients, further action will be taken. sophie hutchinson, bbc news. our top story this lunchtime... the harvey weinstein scandal deepens as the hollywood producer is again publicly accused of rape. coming up, honoured for bravery, we

1:17 pm
that the drugs we often turn to to protect us could become less effective due to drug—resista nt infections. well, what we want is patients to recognise that if they have flu or common colds, viruses, antibiotics are absolutely no use. so, please, if a doctor says, "it's a virus, you don't need an antibiotic," listen to them and don't push them for something that's not going to make a difference to you, but could make it much more risky as medicine goes forward for your children and your grandchildren. it's estimated 700,000 people around the world die every year from drug—resistant infections such as tuberculosis, hiv, and malaria. without antibiotics, it's feared common medical procedures, such as caesarean sections, cancer treatments and hip replacements, would become too risky. the uk government and the wellcome

1:19 pm
to consider the total segregation of girls and boys within a coeducational school. as you mentioned, the al—hijrah school in birmingham access students from the age of four al—hijrah the age of 16, and from the age of ten they are com pletely and from the age of ten they are completely segregated, not simply lessons but school trips, break times, everything. in a report last summer times, everything. in a report last summer 0fsted found the school was inadequate and found this policy of segregation and amounted to unlawful discrimination. the school went to the high court and the high court overruled 0fsted.
1:20 pm
0fsted has appealed that and today the court of appeal has unanimously found that policy of segregation amounts to unlawful direct discrimination against all of the pupils at the school, be they girls or boys, but the court found the motive for segregation, here are religious motive, but any motive was, frankly, is relevant because parliament had never intended in a coeducational school for there to be segregation between the girls and the boys. 0utside court, 0fsted's chief inspector gave me her reaction. it was so important because this was a place where children were not getting the educational experience they're absolutely entitled to. boys and girls were losing out because the way segregation was applied in the school meant they did not get the opportunities to learn and socialise, they weren't being properly prepared for the next stage of education, for adult life, orfor life in modern britain. i understand there are around 20 schools which operates this kind of segregation policy. they will now have to change and in a lengthy statement birmingham city council, which maintains this particular school, said it had opposed 0fsted's appeal because the al—hijrah islamic school, it said, was being held to a different standard to other schools with similar arrangements. the council said the case was always about fairness and consistency but,
1:21 pm
asi about fairness and consistency but, as i say, this particular schools and schools that operate a policy like it, will now have to change that policy. 0k, clive, thank you. the taxi service uber has filed an appeal against a decision by transport for london not to renew its licence to operate in the capital. last month, tfl refused uber a new private hire licence, saying the company was not "fit and proper". the appeal process could take months, during which time uber can continue to operate in london. a teenager accused of planting a bomb which partially exploded on a tube is then at parsons green station will go on trial next year. he was remanded in custody at an appearance at the old bailey this morning. amazon is to open new distribution centre in bolton, creating 1200 permanentjobs. the online retailer opened four centres in britain last year, creating more than 3,500 posts. the company said the new centre would be equipped with the latest robotics technology, which would help process the products

through the plant. an angler had to be resuscitated after accidentally swallowing a fish he had just caught. the man was kissing the dover sole in celebration of the catch, when the six—inch fish wriggled out of his hand and jumped into his mouth. he stopped breathing and suffered a cardiac arrest. a paramedic then managed to remove the fish from his throat, saving the man's life. earlier, we spoke to the paramedic, matt harrison, and one of his colleagues, martyn box. we ran down the pier to wear a group of two or three people were with him, and we found the man lying on his back unconscious and in cardiac arrest. i looked really closely down, looking for whatever i could think might be obstructing his airway, andi think might be obstructing his airway, and i saw probably a one centimetre silver glimmer on the right side of his mouth. i managed to ta ke right side of his mouth. i managed to take a grip with the mcgills forceps and hold it, i tried to
1:23 pm
manoeuvre writ from left to right and it was very tight, the scales and it was very tight, the scales and barbs on the fish probably wedging against the track here. i managed after that four or five attem pts managed after that four or five atte m pts to managed after that four or five attempts to pull it free, but in doing so at one point it slipped out of the grip. i tried to hold it with my finger on my left hand and it just slipped through the globe. it was about the sixth attempt i actually managed to move it, free it from the side of the trachea and then realised i probably had most of it. when it came out i was absolutely astounded as to the length of it. i think we measured it to be about 1a centimetres in length, which is a huge object to ta ke length, which is a huge object to take out in one piece. he then needed some more clearance in the airway because there was blood and excess saliva. clea red airway because there was blood and excess saliva. cleared thataway, managed to put the bag on, then artificially again, we left the scene here, pre—alerted the hospital. by the time we got probably a mile away from the hospital he started making movements
1:24 pm
to where the artificial ventilation was taking place over his face, which gave me indication he was starting to wake up a little bit. by the time we got to the hospital he was able to tell me his surname, which was a delight. he is doing exceptionally well, he was discharged from bournemouth hospital the next morning and, as far as we are aware, he is making a full recovery. i have been in the ambulance service for 30 years and thatis ambulance service for 30 years and that is the most bizarre call i have ever had, that somebody has swallowed a fish. what an extraordinary story, and now to another of a different kind. a retired major who risked his life to save around 200 people caught up in the terror attack at a kenyan shopping centre, has been awarded the uk's highest civilian honour for bravery. dominic troulan, who served for two decades in the special forces, returned a dozen times to the westgate shopping mall during the siege in nairobi four years ago, to lead people to safety. speaking to our correspondent angus crawford, he described why he ran back towards the shopping centre.

1:26 pm
life. and the queen, what was it like meeting her and receiving the award today? very, very special, and truly honoured that i am, and in memory of herfather, truly honoured that i am, and in memory of her father, as the george medal is, very good and very good for my family. dominic troulan speaking there, awarded the uk's highest civilian honour for bravery. one of the premier league's biggest football stars is calling on his fellow players to follow his lead and donate 1% of their earnings to charity. inspired by children he met from the slums of mumbai in india, the manchester united player juan mata says he hopes to use football—related projects to change people's lives around the world. john maguire has been along to meet him. manchester united call their home ground the theatre of dreams. so what must it feel like for these children to come here from their home in the slums of mumbai in india? it is a very beautiful stadium and sitting

1:29 pm
my dream is coming through and sitting with the team. juan mata realises he benefits hugely from being part of the highly privileged few. so, through his charity, and, as its name implies, this common goal, he wants the few to make a real difference to the lives of many. john maguire, bbc news, manchester. a mini—heatwave is expected to bathe parts of the uk in temperatures reaching 2a degrees over the next few days. the hot temperatures come hours after heavy winds and rain swept across northern parts of england — rain in cumbria forced the closure of a number of schools as villages were covered in surface water. more now on what is a mixed bag
