7:30 pm
south coast, hats along the south coast, hats persistent rain a little further north than this picture may imply. some uncertainty. but it is a wet start for southern england and potentially south wales, too. further north, sunshine. the titley in southern and western scotland, it is a showery picture. for the north—east, clear skies and sunshine, but also a chilly start, too. the area of low pressure to the south moves off to the continent quickly, showers will push on to north wales and northern england through the second half of the day. also some heavy ones for scotland and northern ireland. further north, sunshine but a chilly story, three in edinburgh. ten in plymouth. overnight, the first working day of the new year, new year's day into tuesday, noticed the isobars over that little ridge of high pressure, and that will allow temperatures to come down, probably giving the chilliest night of the week ahead. a patchy frost first thing on tuesday.
7:31 pm
a chilly start to get back to work, but then at all—star wet and windy again as an area of low pleasure comes in from the west. maybe snow across northern england for the higher ground, and scotland, elsewhere a wet picture. milder air behind that though, 11 and i2 elsewhere a wet picture. milder air behind that though, 11 and 12 in the south, but four oi’ or six typically across scotland and northern ireland. in the week ahead, look out for further spells in piri rain. this is bbc news. good evening. it's 7:30pm. our latest headlines: fire—fighters are tackling a blaze at a multistorey car park at liverpool's echo arena. the international horse show was being staged at the venue, and it has been cancelled. a seaplane has crashed into a river north of sydney, killing all six people on board. unconfirmed reports say the casualties include an 11—year—old boy, the pilot and four british nationals. police in the iranian capital, tehran, use water cannon against protesters during a fourth day of anti—government
7:32 pm
demonstrations. authorities are restricting access to some social media channels. fireworks and festivities usher in the new year. hong kong welcomed in 2018 with a spectacular fireworks display above the iconic victoria harbour. and thousands of rail travellers face disruption as workers from two train companies stage 24—hour strikes in separate disputes about the role of guards and working conditions. now on bbc news, sportsday. hello, i'm olly foster. these are our sportsday headlines tonight... ederson saves a point for city, but the winning run is over. wenger sets a record at the hawthornes, as sanchez steals the points for the gunners. but they are held by west bromwich albion. and exeter stretch their lead in the rugby union premiership with victory against leicester.
7:33 pm
good evening. manchester city couldn't take their unbeaten run into the new year. after 18 league victories in a row, city were held to a goaless draw at crystal palace. and they might have lost had it not been for a late penalty save. city were also hit by injuries to gabrieljesus and kevin de bruyne. but the point still sees them 14 points clear at the top of the table. adam wild reports. however far back your memory stretches, it's hard to remember a team quite like this manchester city. never has a side been so far ahead at the end of the year. to their ambition — well, there seems no end. victory at crystal palace would have equalled the european record. the target, then, was clear. hitting it, less so.
7:34 pm
palace had their own aims. spring a surprise possible, but unlikely. the first half marred by injury. first to palace‘s scott dann, and then to city's gabriellejesus. his year ending in tears. it was his replacement, sergio aguero, who went the closest in the first half — first hitting the post, and then getting the wrong side of it. this was not the city that football has come to fear. encouragement palace seemingly growing with each missed opportunity. palace, for their part, had their chances. with which they should have done better. ultimately, that for them is how this will be remembered. a 90th minute penalty awarded. late drama at the end of the year. luke miller foyer fritsch unable to see it out. not the perfect end of year, but for city, no doubt better things to come.
7:35 pm
adam wild, bbc news. sooner or later, that should have. big credit for crystal palace. at the end, they had a big chance to win the game. they had action, but we didn't control, we conceded a lot of free kicks. in the second—half, it was much, much better. we created enough chances. they had one, the penalty. a deserved point for both teams. and now, just focus. when we win, we just focus on the next one. when we didn't win, just focus on the next one. as i said many times, it will be a long road to be first. we need points. it's nice when you play well, and i'm sure before the game nobody would have expected us to even get a point from the game. so we shouldn't start being too critical, because a point against a team of this quality is always good for us in our position. but, on a couple of occasions now with very, very late penalties awarded we've failed to capitalise. and you look at those four
7:36 pm
points and think, if only we could have got those, we would be further away from the relegation zone. but the lads are doing a wonderfuljob. i'm full of praise for their performance today, and i'm very proud of their performance today. arsene wenger took charge of his 811th premier league match today, and it was a winning one. that is a record. he overtakes sir alex ferguson's old mark. alexis sanchez gave them the lead but then they gave away a late penalty which jay rodriguez scored. that finished 1—1 at the hawthorns. a debatable penalty was enough to lift the baggies off the top of the relegation zone. he would like a fair few more the top of the relegation zone. he would like a fairfew more managing alexis sanchez. no sign yet of a contract extension and manchester city could be to cover the chilling. his skills on show. a flicked pass game over by alex iwobi. west brom yet to record a win and alan pa rd ew‘s yet to record a win and alan pardew‘s six games in charge and have managed lost my goals. jack wilshere has been displaying signs ofa wilshere has been displaying signs of a return to form as late. his path set free alexandre lacazette.
7:37 pm
and then the arsenal breakthrough from a familiar figure. sanchez struck. a fourth goal in three games. illustrating just how much his club depend on him. west brom have begun the game bottom of the table, desperate for points. they've got a penalty. and jay rodriguez earned them a precious draw. local i think, many, many years ago we would have fought very hard for referees to cover some might become professional. and i think they did a good job. but many times now, the imp working. and i question even more when that... we have a very difficult schedule. and i believe that we did fight very hard to win the game. and in the end, we couldn't because of a bad decision. in the end, it was a fortunate decision. you might look back and say it's a penalty. arson death in
7:38 pm
the doesn't think it's a penalty and ifi the doesn't think it's a penalty and if i was the opposing manager i might not have thought it was a penalty either —— arsene wenger does not think it a penalty. in the fixture at their place we should definitely have had a penalty. sometimes what they say about football, you know, it comes back and treats you at times. we got a treat today. manchester united's ashley young has been charged with violent conduct by the football association after he was caught on camera elbowing southampton‘s dusan tadic in yesterday's goalless draw at old trafford. the incident wasn't spotted by referee craig pawson. he has accepted the charge of violent conduct and will miss the next three games. kyle naughton is also banned for three matches after accepting similar charges. being on accepting similar charges. being on a watford player. —— for stamping on a watford player. —— for stamping on a watford player. —— for stamping on a watford player. happy new year, mark warburton. he's been sacked by nottingham forest after nine months. it follows their 1—0 defeat to sunderland yesterday — their fifth defeat in seven games. forest are currently 14th in the championship. director of football frank mcparland has also left his post. gary brazil is to take over as caretaker manager while forest
7:39 pm
look to appoint a replacement. exeter chiefs have stretched their lead at the top of the rugby union premiership to ten points. they beat leicester 30—6 with four second—half tries at sandy park. that's tigers' sixth league defeat in a row — their worst run in over 50 years. alex gulrajani reports. 2017 will go down as a great year. champions for the first time, devon now a must—stop shop for the england head coach. with the chiefs clear at the top of the table, 2018 could be a memorable one, too. the only points early against leicester came from the boot. the hands were making far too many errors. chances missed, and their visitors were keeping in touch thanks to george ford. it took brute strength to put the league leaders in charge. don armand carried over. and now a gap emerged between the sides. exeter certainly didn't need any help. yetjohnny may was in a giving mood. a carry straight into the arms of henry slade.
7:40 pm
the simplest of finishes. and those supporters may well have stayed on their feet. asjonny hill went over not long after. and there was still time for more. a bonus point—winning try with the last play of the game. jack yeandle with the perfect end to a monumental year for exeter. there are two matches in wales in ther pro—14. ospreys won at dragons 22—9. scarlets won awaited blues, 14—11. scarlets won awaited blues, 14—11. scarlets fought back after the break, rhys patchell‘s type, the second of the match, sealed the win. rhys patchell‘s try, their second of the match, sealed the win. they are top of conference b in the pro—14. england's cricketers have arrived in sydney ahead of the final ashes test, which begins in four days' time. england wicketkeeper jonny bairstow has given his backing to all—rounder moeen ali. he has only taken three wickets and averaged 19 runs with the bat this series. i think that that's unquestionable, even to think that he's not in that best xi.
7:41 pm
he wouldn't have played the first four test matches if he's not in that best xi. i think there's not many spinners that will come to australia and bowl teams out. so i think it's very important that you get behind moeen, he can take a game away from you. ben stokes won'tjoin up with the england one—day squad in australia. he's still waiting to hear if he'll be charged following a fight outside a bristol nightclub in september. the five—match series starts on januray 1ath, but it's very unlikely that stokes will play a part. dawid malan will replace him in the squad. world heavyweight boxing champion anthonyjoshua says that a deal to fight wbo championjoseph parker in the new year is nearly done. parker had been holding out for a bigger share of the fights purse, believed to be around 30%—35%. joshua is looking to uniufy the division next year, with deyontay wilder's wbc title also on his radar. to hold all five belts has never been done before.
7:42 pm
so i won't let negotiations get in the way of securing my legacy and what i could achieve in the sport. so i think we're 95% of the way there, with completing with joseph parker. british number one johanna konta starts her season tomorrow with a match against the american madison keys at the brisbane international. it will be konta's first tournament with new coach michaeljoyce. i don't know, it's been really good so far. we put in a good pre—season together. we've been working together for about a month now, so not that long. and this is our first tournament together. but i know we're both excited to get the season started and to look to try and get better. that's all from sportsday. there'll be more sport here on bbc news throughout the evening. from all of us, have a very happy new year. the way people chase the dream of
7:43 pm
their perfect body is changing. the pressure men are now facing is similarto pressure men are now facing is similar to what women have had to deal with for decades. diets, workouts, days spent in the gym. for many young men especially, anabolic steroids are being increasingly used to help achieve that dream. in this film, i'm going to find out from one user why he takes them, and put him through a syriza of tests to see what damage, if any, they have done to his body. i will hearfrom what damage, if any, they have done to his body. i will hear from the experts, look at the law surrounding the reviews in the uk, and speak to a dealer about why he does it. garethjenkins is 29 and lives just outside of cardiff, he is one of the estimated hundreds of thousands of
