he said, it is weeks ago. i said,... he said, it is about enjoying it. since then we have had a chat, great results. he has fallen in love with the game again and all of a sudden he has hit this record. he has been overwhelmed, i think. a guard of honour, 286 and the crowd, the biggest of the season gave paul are welcome. the supporters club gave him a memento. things finally settled down at 3pm. wisbech iii—i, scoring a goal worthy of the occasion. a late penalty means he missed out on a clean sheet. not to worry. a great day, surpassed everything i have ever dreamt of and i appreciate everything everyone has done for me. i do not know what else ican done for me. i do not know what else i can achieve in football apart from wembley in this cup! it is a great cap and fitting to the end. special day, go and enjoy the celebrations with your mates, well done. a wembley final would be the fairy tale. his team—mates will try to make the dream come true. congratulations to baz on that

record! that's all from sportsday. we'll have more throughout the evening. rescue workers are searching for survivors after a powerful earthquake in western iran killed more than 400 people and injured more than 5,000. iran's emergency services say they're having trouble getting rescue teams to the affected areas near the border with iraq as roads have been cut off by landslides. for more on this, i'm joined in the studio byjiyar gol from the bbc‘s persian service. you are originally from an area very close to this. tell us how difficult it is for rescue teams to get to some of these villages that have been affected. this region is a
6:52 pm
mountainous region, close to the iraqi border, and at the same time, a few minutes ago, an official in i run said more than 1900 villages have been affected. but so far, the rescue effort has been focusing on two major cities. most of the casualties from there. the hospitals in this region are almost completely destroyed. the infrastructure in that region is not in a state that could cope with such an earthquake with this magnitude. that is why the iranian government had to pool resources from neighbouring provinces and teheran. they say they have lost many people but so far they have not seen anyone come to they have not seen anyone come to the help. that is why there is a fear that the number of casualties and those people who have been killed are most likely rising by tomorrow. this is an area that has
6:53 pm
had earthquakes before like this? iran is not a stranger to earthquakes. they have been hundreds of deadly earthquakes in iran, but in that region, we did not have it ina long in that region, we did not have it in a long time, for decades. we had it not on this magnitude. do you think the authorities are not prepared for this kind of disaster? most definitely. this region is already damaged by eight years of the iraq iran war. it has had political instability and has not developed like other parts of iran. that is why when something like this happened, they have to bring equipment and resources from other provinces and taking that equipment ta kes provinces and taking that equipment takes hours. those hours are a matter of life. so this area has had terrible suffering over the years from war and now from natural disaster? absolutely. some people we re disaster? absolutely. some people were talking to me and said they
6:54 pm
we re were talking to me and said they were ina were talking to me and said they were in a small village and have lost 20 people, just in that village. they had to pull beneath the crushed building with their bare hands. so many people have to sleep in the cold. don't forget, it is a mountainous region, the weather is cold, the new blankets and tents, they were asking for the government to reach them. the foreign secretary borisjohnson is to meet the husband of nazanin zaghari—ratcliffe — the british woman jailed in iran — on wednesday. this afternoon he said the british government was doing everything it could to secure her release. and he apologised for comments he made last week in which he suggested she'd been training journalists. the british government has no doubt that mrs nazanin zaghari—ratcliffe was an iranian on holiday, and that was an iranian on holiday, and that was the sole purpose of her visit. my was the sole purpose of her visit. my remarks on the subject before the
6:55 pm
foreign affairs select committee could and should have been clearer, andi could and should have been clearer, and i acknowledge the words i used we re and i acknowledge the words i used were open to being misinterpreted, andi were open to being misinterpreted, and i apologise to mrs nazanin zaghari—ratcliffe and her family if i have inadvertently cause them any further anguish. it is not good enough. if it is a matter of pride that the foreign secretary is refusing to admit simply that he has made a mistake or that i feel bound to say to him that his pride matters not one ounce compared to nazanin zaghari—ratcliffe's freedom! after a week of obstetrician and bluster, will you finally take the opportunity today to state simply an unequivocally, for the removal of any doubt, either here or in tehran, that he simply got it wrong? carla ferstman is the director of human rights organisation redress and has been working with nazanin's husband to secure her release. we heard another apology from boris
6:56 pm
johnson. are you happy with that?|j think johnson. are you happy with that?” think what is important is that the government has confirmed that nazanin zaghari—ratcliffe was in iranfor no nazanin zaghari—ratcliffe was in iran for no other reason than to visit herfamily. iran for no other reason than to visit her family. and iran for no other reason than to visit herfamily. and going forward, thatis visit herfamily. and going forward, that is the message that needs to be repeated to everyone. what do you wa nt repeated to everyone. what do you want the british government to do now? there has been talk of diplomatic protection, putting her under british diplomatic protection. if someone gets into trouble in a foreign country, let's say you lose your passport or you get into a small altercation, the government's consular service kicks in. we are saying that in nazanin's case, it is
6:57 pm
different because her rights have been violated in an atrocious way, she has been detained for almost two gears arbitrarily, so says the un and so say her expert legal team, and so say her expert legal team, and asa and so say her expert legal team, and as a result of that, this is a wrong which the british government needs to recognise. diplomatic protection is a mechanism whereby the government can assert a claim against the iranian government for the violation of the rights of its nationals. but would that help? with the iranian government actually recognise that concept of diplomatic protection? certainly, it is a concept under international law which binds iran like it bounce all countries. the hope is that the recognition of the escalation of this matter will be a way in which the matter can be resolved because, at the end of the day, that is the most important thing. nazanin needs to come home. she is still imprisoned after so long. we heard
6:58 pm
from her husband. medically not in great shape. absolutely, she has serious concerns about her health. this has been a very stressful time. she has a very young child that she has not been able to properly see. her husband has not been able to see the child since this whole incident started. it is a very difficult situation for the entire family, very stressful one. what needs to happen is a common resolve of the government to do nothing other than get her home. time for a look at the weather with tomasz. it has been quite nippy in the last few days but we have got milder weather on the way. i say milder, maybe a touch milder, it will not
6:59 pm
turn warmed by any means. tonight, cloud and outbreaks of rain here in there. blobs of blue those temperatures not quite slow, in some areas, 8—10d. no one is cold as last night, for example. tomorrow, overall, we can cool it a pretty cloudy day. there will be breaks and cloud. maybe in the east of the pennines and far south but the hills of wales, great with spots of drizzle. the best of the weather, the far north of england. glasgow, edinburgh, in the fine day on tuesday. tuesday night into wednesday, it looks like it will turn fairly misty and murky. first thing on wednesday morning, there could be the betterfog thing on wednesday morning, there could be the better fog around for the early morning commuters. you're watching beyond one hundred days.
