understanding of how it was built. its place in history is irrefutable, and this major project will ensure its place in the future. john maguire, bbc news, shropshire. it is 9:30am exactly. let's take a look at the weather prospects from simon king. the clocks andi and i can give you a springlike start to the weather. look at this in aberdeenshire at the sun starts to rise and for many northern areas, we have had blue skies and sunshine. further south, a bit cloudy this morning and the cloud hanging on a bit across the far south—east of england into the afternoon but elsewhere, good sunny spells with the risk of one or two showers into scotla nd the risk of one or two showers into scotland and northern ireland, the far north of england but with light wind and sunshine, temperatures getting up into double figures. through this evening and overnight, with clear spells, it will turn
quite cold fairly quickly and there will be a fast developing across the north and the west, look at the blues taking hold of the map, temperatures further south and east just above freezing but this is how we start on monday, clear skies and sunshine initially but cloud increasing from the west and with that, outbreaks of rain moving into northern ireland, into south—west scotland, west wales and the far south—west of england. maximum temperature is on monday once again getting into double figures, 10—13. more in half an hour. this is bbc news. our latest headlines. the australia cricket captain steve smith and vice captain david warner are to stand down from their posts following the ball tampering scandal. more on this in our sport bulletin in a moment. 3,000 midwives are to be trained over the next four
years in the largest—ever increase of maternity staff in england. the plans will also see expectant mothers treated by the same midwives throughout their pregnancy. borisjohnson has described claims that vote leave broke electoral spending rules during the eu referendum — as "utterly ludicrous". in a tweet, he says vote leave won fair and square. a memorial service is under way in the tiny southern french town of trebes, where an islamist militant killed four people on friday. later this week, there will be a national tribute to honour the police officer who died saving the gunman‘s hostages. a group of mps has questioned whether the government is paying enough to childcare providers. they say the state is paying care workers 34p an hour less than it costs to look after the children. coming up in a few minutes, our sunday morning edition of the papers — this morning's reviewers are katy balls, political correspondent at the spectator and prashant rao, deputy europe business editor of the new york times. before the papers, sport,
and for a full round—up, from the bbc sport centre, here's holly. she has the latest on that sensational cricket news on the australian team. the scandal has rocked australian cricket in the last 2a hours but as you say, in the last 2a hours but as you say, in the last hour, captain steve smith and vice captain david warner have announced that they are stepping down over those plans to tamper with the ball. the incident took place on the ball. the incident took place on the third day of the test between south africa and australia in cape town with batsman cameron bancroft caught on camera taking what he said was yellow tape out of his pocket before robbing the ball. bancroft has been charged by the international cricket council while steve smith has admitted to knowing about the plan beforehand. i am not proud of what has happened. umm... you know... it is not within the spirit of the game. my integrity, the team's integrity, the leadership group's integrity, has come into question,
and rightfully so. umm... it is not on. umm... it is certainly not on. and it will not happen again, i can promise you, under my leadership. australian cricket fans want to be proud of their cricket team. they want to be proud of the australian cricket team. and i think this morning, they have every reason to wake up and not be proud of the team. it is a very sad day for australian cricket. one of the unique things about the game of cricket is that it is to be played not only within the laws of the game but in the spirit of the game. and activities on the field yesterday in cape town were neither within the laws of the game or the spirit of the game. 0bviously,
obviously, there has been a huge reaction right across the world to the incident, some of these tweets before the announcement that steve smith and david warner will be stepping down. among the comments, former england captain michael vaughan said the leadership needs to be replaced, calling their position is untenable whilst also saying it was disgraceful behaviour by senior professionals to let the young cameron bancroft have thatjob. australian cricketing legend shane warne said he was very disappointed with the actions taken and called for captain and coach to clean they mess up. but kevin pietersen says he believes australia's actions have disgraced a great cricketing nature —— the australian actions have disgraced a great cricketing nation as well as test cricket itself. more reaction to the story as it unfolds. england are looking to force a draw against new zealand in the first test in auckland, it is the fourth day at the home side declared on 427-8 day at the home side declared on 427—8 after their first innings. england lost alastair cook early in
their second innings forjust england lost alastair cook early in their second innings for just two. mark stoneman reached his fourth test half—century with a six off neil wagner but was out next ball, caught by trent boult. joe root made 51 but lost his wicketjust as play finished for the day. england finished for the day. england finished on 132—2, trailing by 237. england's women have also been in action today, dani wyatt hitting a brilliant century as they beat india in the third t20 of the series in mumbai. danny white becomes only the second woman to score two t20 international centuries which helped england reach their target of 199 england reach their target of i99 with eight balls to spare. india had earlier posted 198—4, the highest score made against england, who now topped the table with tee wins from two after also beating australia. the formula i season has returned
for 2018 in the formula 1 season has returned for 2018 in australia. it began with a bitter blow for lewis hamilton who finished in second place after a spot of bad luck allowed ferrari's sebastian vettel to overtake him and claim the chequered flag as nick pa rrott claim the chequered flag as nick parrott reports. for the fifth year ina row, parrott reports. for the fifth year in a row, lewis hamilton started from pole position in melbourne but he has only won twice that albert bach. that statistic looked set to improve as he opened up a three second lead over the ferraris of kimi raikkonen and sebastian vettel. the only drama was unfolding behind him. the highly rated max verstappen making an uncharacteristic mistake and both fast cars came to a halt while on course for a top five finish. but misfortune for one driver can have an indirect impact on others. the field had to slow while romain grosjean's car was removed and sebastian vettel took the opportunity to stop for a fresh tyres. when he rejoined, he took the lead. radio: why didn't you tell me he was in the pits? we thought we we re safe
he was in the pits? we thought we were safe but there's obviously something wrong. with overtaking extreme different, —— difficult sebastian vettel claimed the victory that hamilton will feel should have been his. the german won the first race last season but could not win the title. he will be hoping this time, his luck changes. with no premier league football this weekend, it was a busy weekend of international friendlies, and a great result for northern ireland. they came from behind to beat world cup finalists south korea in belfast. they levelled the match thanks to an own goal after a clever oliver norwood free kick. then substitute paul smyth scored the winner in the 86th minute becoming the first northern ireland player to score on his debut since george mccartney against iceland in 2001. i mean, i am getting used to it. scoring on my debut. it was a great feeling out there in front of all the crowd, and they bring great support every single home game. ijust thought i would embrace the moment, take it by the hand and go out there, try to work as much as i can as usual but i enjoyed every minute of it. saracens are up to second in rugby union's premiership
after a 211—11 win over harlequins in the first—ever premiership match at the london stadium. with several players back in club action after the six nations, two returning stars made the difference for saracens. wales wing liam williams and england back—row maro itoje scoring for the european champions. in the pro1li, cardiff blues stepped closer to sealing a play—off spot with victory over ulster, who themselves now face a tricky task of reaching the post—season matches. the blues ran in four tries to secure a 35—17 bonus point win. that's all the sport for now. now on bbc news, here's ben brown with the papers. hello and welcome to our review of the sunday papers. with me are katy balls,
political correspondent at the spectator and prashant rao, deputy europe business editor of the new york times. let's have a look then at this morning's front pages. the observer reports claims from a staff member for the brexit vote leave campaign who says it may have broken electoral spending law. the express says the government will recruit more midwives. the sunday mirror leads with news that filming for a tv series about the murder of teenager milly dowler has provoked anger from local people. the sunday telegraph says facebook was warned about the potential for users' data to be accessed by others seven years ago. the mail on sunday reports that a number 10 aide ‘outed' a former partner in a row over the eu referendum. and the sunday times reports
that the government is preparing to announce plans to put an extra £4 billion a year into the nhs. let's start with the observer, a brexit insider claims that the leaving makaridze may have robbed —— that the vote leave team may have broken the law. talk us through the story at the potential marrow medications. we've gone from how the brexit prison should be handled to how we got there, going back to the referendum and this story is vote leave, the official campaigning group in the referendum, someone who worked in one of the campaigns associated with it claims that the tea m associated with it claims that the team may have broken the law and this is down to a donation that was made of over half £1 billion to beleave, a group of younger
brexiteer ‘s and it is how closely they worked with vote leave because if you work too closely and you coordinate, that sum of money should be put under the same money as a vote leave and that had a cap on its finding exceeded. so that is the story, good start. what does it all mean, do you think? does it have serious political ramifications?” think there are always rumbling is the story, good start. what does it all mean, do you think? does it have serious political ramifications? i think there are always rubbings after every referendum and election about spending, there are finds going about the weight is recorded and people go over it. these claims don't seem new to me because i think we have heard them before about this group. what is new is someone from their team is saying it but there is also this person called darren grimes involved with that group, and the whistle—blower is claiming that darren grimes was perhaps put into a position he did not want to be in but darren grimes is denying this. i think unless more comes out, i can't yet see this being the big stop brexit thing it is being pushed as. is this one for the new york times,
a big story? i think the overall story is a big one, the idea of... they're relics between a canadian company that contract it and cambridge analytica, which we are all intimately familiar now, according to the observer. there's the constant stream of brexit news so the constant stream of brexit news so it is important in the broader context but the details in terms of the implications for future politics, i'm not sure how it plays out. what might be interesting is if there is some kind of form proposed for election spending rules. as you say, this is something that consta ntly say, this is something that constantly rumbles up after elections and referendums. does it lead to some kind of reform as to how much money you can spend all how you are allowed to spend it? if it comes through, it might be interesting for future campaigns. the mail on sunday's front page is a prime minister's aid in toxic sex i’ow prime minister's aid in toxic sex row over pro—brexit clash plot. —— tash scott. it got messy very
quickly, the whistle—blower involved with the beleave campaign, they talked about the fact that stephen parkinson who works for number ten, is one of theresa may's closest aides, helped that group or gave them advice and in response, stephen parkinson gave a statement where he said, "ifi parkinson gave a statement where he said, "if i gave advice to this person, it was only in the context of our relationship, we had a relationship for 18 months and it ended". that would perhaps seem releva nt ended". that would perhaps seem relevant in the context of the claims but the problem is the whistle—blower says he has not come out as gay. that has put him in a difficult position and his family in the position, given that they live ina the position, given that they live in a country where it is not really accepted. moving on to the sunday telegraph, you were talking about the cambridge analytica story that has dominated the headlines are weak, really, for days, now. this angle in the sunday telegraph is that facebook which has been the subject of so much criticism, a lot of people leaving facebook, actually, saying facebook was warned about the data risk seven years ago.
this is the broader context, i think facebook, we can go back and forth oi'i facebook, we can go back and forth on the future for facebook but tens of billions of dollars have been wiped off its stock market value. i think there are real questions being asked now as to how much of a role facebook plays in our lives and if it does play a central role, does it do enough to believe the formation it gathers on us? should it even be gathering that information at all? seven years ago fiow, gathering that information at all? seven years ago now, as the sunday telegraph now says: the data protection commissioner of ireland, the country outside the us which is allowed to regulate facebook because facebook's international operations are headquartered there, i'd warned facebook about this. facebook says that in september 2012, the data commissioner acknowledge the progress they had made and they changed the platform in 2014 but this ties into the cambridge analytica situation because if they are not policing the data we give them, what does that mean in terms of how the data is used, wrongfully and so on, by third parties? the
problems and the criticisms are mounting for facebook. do you think the future facebook is in doubt? advertisers, yes, some of them have pulled out but at the same time, i've heard people saying it is still the best place to go to advertise digitally. year, i mean, people are still keen to do that. i think the way it works, the way they invite custom will change from here on in. when you hear about there being warned of data risk, it does not come as a huge surprise, although they appear to be talking a good game this week. you feel they have been pushed to do that. we were talking before we came about whether we should delete the app because some people say, the best way to do this would be boycott facebook but i don't get the impression the majority of my friends are so worried that they will do that yet. they are still facebook.” worried that they will do that yet. they are still facebook. i am still on facebook. we are in a app situation. mark zuckerberg was quite late in saying something and did not
really say much for days. maggie lieu i think we are learning a lot about mark zuckerberg and siemons, we saw after the us presidential election that he was quite slow to acknowledge the role fake news played on facebook. he seems to have been somewhat slow in this situation as well to acknowledge and address the concerns that facebook has dealt with. i think it is interestingly, not to big ourselves up but we had an interview with him recently and he said if you'd asked to be 2004 in his hardwood door room, whether he would be policing the future governments and political campaigns. -- in his governments and political campaigns. —— in his harvard dorm room. he not have said that. i wonder how much she has really got on to grips with? and still only 33. we hear he might have ambitions to be president one day which might make it more difficult. also in the sunday telegraph, russian tv sharing propaganda using uk bases. this is
interesting, as the government promises tough action on russia following the salisbury incident and ways to stop money coming here, it turns out that quite a lot of russian tv stations broadcast in the uk and then across europe and there are several breaches of ofcom regulations, putting out material which is misleading orjust plain wrong. i think it comes as we know there have been calls for russia today and these programmes to perhaps not be allowed to air here, it has been left to ofcom but interestingly, it seems to go deeper than some of the ones we are seeing and when the government is trying to say we need to take strong action, they should probably leave so there are serious questions of the fact they are letting this happen. the sunday times, theresa may ordering a lot of extra spending to help the nhs, £4 billion, we are being told, asa nhs, £4 billion, we are being told, as a sort of boost and overruling the chancellor to sort of save the nhs must have more money.” the chancellor to sort of save the nhs must have more money. i mean, you know, katie can speak more to
this but it seems to be a real political thing, the sunday times reports that there's been a growing realisation in cabinet about the nhs being an achilles' heel for the conservatives and labour has been hammering them on this, at least from my vantage point, identity £4 billion plug the gap, there's a £20 billion plug the gap, there's a £20 billion shortfall in nhs future funding andl billion shortfall in nhs future funding and i would be interested in your views what this means politically. as you say, they have realised how much of an issue this is. before christmas, all these mps went to number ten and they were given a briefing on values in which the party leads and labour is very far ahead on the nhs and what has not happened is obviously, there was the brexit bus pledge, which promised more money for the nhs. £350 million. theresa may shied away from going near that, partly because it was a vote leave regedit might have helped borisjohnson‘s leadership ambitions to enable it but they have realised that they need to get on the front foot now.
£4 billion is what simon stevens, the man in charge of the nhs, asked this year to plug the funding gap. they are still thinking about the hype tax on top of this, 1p on the pound which is specifically for that but i think lots of people in the conservative party are very suspicious of those. moving on to another sunday times story, they have coverage of the big massive gun control rallies that we store is —— that we saw in the usa, amazing scenes, just the sheer numbers, paul mccartney featured there in the sunday times because obviously, of john lennon's shooting. we have seen this debate so many times in the us but do you feel this is a turning point? maccabi what we need to qualify if a turning point for what? i think there seems to be not a huge amount of movement on a federal level. we need to remember the usa is very different from britain in
terms that a lot of policy is made oi'i terms that a lot of policy is made on local level than it is in britain and that is what we are saying. local state legislatures, places where they are experimenting with different kinds of restrictions on guns that maybe allow someone to hold a gun and buy a gun but maybe it is harder for you to prove that you can protect your gun, keep it in a safe place, in a locker, maybe you need to go through more background checks, more other checks to get the gun in the first place. at a federal level, it is hard to see given how polarised the united states is in washington but in states where often in lots of places you see practical solutions come up, i think we are starting to see the beginnings of experimentation. another picture inside the sunday times of some of the marches in washington. washington was the biggest. this is a difficult issue for donald trump. he has flip—flopped on gun control a number of times. where do you think
america is in your view? it is a difficult issue for donald trump. as discussed, i can't see anything happening any time soon but i don't think it isjust happening any time soon but i don't think it is just because of president trump. when you had president trump. when you had president obama, sandy hook, nothing happened. i don't even think having... the feelings on gun control goes so far across the country that it doesn't matter if you have a republican or democrat really when it comes to addressing that. a quick look at the sunday express , that. a quick look at the sunday express, good headline, thousands more maternity nurses to be recruited. another example of government spending the health service. and again it shows the government have addressed one of the things they need to do to keep the nhs in good shape and to beatjeremy corbyn, fix the issue of midwives. it is interesting whatjeremy hunt says if they want to have it so a woman has the same midwife from early pregnancy to delivery. they think that will reduce the number of miscarriages by fifth which would
obviously be great news. the big cricketing story, the big sports story of the day, it is extraordinary, the ball tampering row with australia. we just heard the captain and vice captain have resigned as a result, it is the front page of the sunday times sports supplement. you are a cricket man? i slightly lapsed india fan so i'm on the bandwagon when they are successful! i'm not paying attention otherwise. this goes to the heart of sport generally, right? the things we play with, the things we use as sort of tennis balls or cricket balls or whatever, that they are not tampered with, that everyone is on an even playing field, and the idea that so blatantly as well that this was done, it goes to the heart of what are we doing here? why are we playing this game at all if it is not going to be in even battle? when you say blatantly, what was amazing was, in modern test cricket, you have so many cameras showing so many slow motion and intricate angles and
you can't get away with anything so why even try? that is what i thought, i'm not a cricket expert at all, i can count on one hand the number of times i've watched it but what is interesting is the fact they thought they could even get away with it because of all the cameras but it perhaps suggest there is a precedent. why do they wake up one day and think they will try for the first time? maybe people have been getting away with it. it was a very disarming press conference where they admitted it many openly. so many things about this unremarkable. the bowler who said it said they had a discussion using the great and he's said he had an opportunity to change the ball's edition. he just described what he did, no question. amazing. and the whole of australia a p pa re ntly amazing. and the whole of australia apparently is in a state of shock because it is a massive thing in australia. and it has been quite a bad—tempered series, they have not enjoyed it. it is just bad—tempered series, they have not enjoyed it. it isjust not cricket! it certainly wouldn't happen here. finally, turning to the fun on
sunday about easter eggs. are you an easter egg man? i like an easter egg but i have not had one yet, i had one of the chocolate bunnies because i thought it would be easing me in. it's quite early. it is but i did it anyway! i think this is a row we have every year, there's always some kind of issue, last year, it was involving the national trust easter 999 involving the national trust easter egg hunts and whether or you could —— whether or not you could put the word easter in, now the majority of these drinks don't have the word easter and quite an angry quote from a catholic priest, david palmer, saying, "the firms want to send chocolate eggs, fine, but not mentioning easter is cynical". it is whether you think we don't want to talk about christianity. is it cynical? the idea we are selling easter eggs as a commercial enterprise is somewhat cynical in and of itself. you know what? broadly i find it hard to get worked
up broadly i find it hard to get worked up about it. i'm generally quite pro—chocolate. anything that gets more chocolate in shelves, i am in favour of. i think because they are called easter eggs, i don't see why you need to take that off them. exactly. the president is there, why not call them these dregs but i'm not call them these dregs but i'm not going to campaign on it? i'm just going to eat the bunny. happy easter to both of you. thank you for joining us. that's it for the papers. don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website. it's all there for you seven days a week at bbc.co.uk/papers, and if you miss the programme, you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you, katy balls and prashant rao. and goodbye from us. hello. now the clocks have gone forward and we are in british summer
time, ican't forward and we are in british summer time, i can't offer much in the way of summery weather but certainly for spring, it is not too bad. it will be some sunshine. we had a cracking start to the day and with the sunshine, for many northern areas of the uk, that will continue well into the uk, that will continue well into the afternoon. further south and east, a bit more cloud across the far south—east of england but even here, the cloud will tend to thin and break up throughout the afternoon. one or two showers across the far north of england, into northern ireland and across scotland but those showers will be few and far between, many good spells sunshine and maximum temperatures getting up into double figures, about 10—12d and with light winds, that will feel quite pleasant. this evening and overnight, with clear spells, it will turn fairly chilly fairly quickly, with frost developing across scotland, northern ireland and into northern and western areas, temperatures below freezing. further south and east, a bit more cloud and temperatures perhaps staying up at 1—4 celsius.
as we go into next week, a bit of a battle going on. across the north, aircoming infrom battle going on. across the north, air coming in from scandinavia. across the south, milder or less cold aircoming in across the south, milder or less cold air coming in from the atlantic and as two meet, that is where we could start to see a bit of snow. as for monday's forecast, bit chilly first thing in the morning and gradually got the sunshine eroded away by some cloud moving in from the west, eventually rain pushing into northern ireland, west wales and the far south—west of england. again, temperatures still in double figures, about 10—13 but that will change as we go through tuesday, this area of low pressure moving in and that will be the dividing line really between the colder air to the north and the less cold air towards the south. we will start to see snow falling across the far north—east of scotla nd falling across the far north—east of scotland into tuesday and temperatures taking a real drop, 5-8d. temperatures taking a real drop, 5—8d. further south, some sunny spells after the morning rain clears away and temperatures stilljust
about in double figures. as for wednesday, an increasing risk of snow, moving its way in across scotland, may be some down to lower levels, snow over the pennines, a mix of sunny spells and showers but with the north—westerly wind, it will start to feel chilly even in the south. temperatures in london still about 10 degrees but further north, more like 4—7. the run—up to easter is looking pretty cold. more on the website. goodbye. this is bbc news. i'm ben brown. the headlines at 10am: the australia cricket captain steve smith and vice captain david warner are to stand down after the ball tampering scandal. an extra 3000 midwives are to be trained in england to ease staff shortages and improve care. borisjohnson describes claims that vote leave broke electoral spending rules during the eu referendum as utterly ludicrous. in the next hour:
france remembers the police officer and three other people killed in the terror attack on friday. a memorial service is under way in the tiny southern french town of trebes led by the bishop of carcassonne. and in half an hour: sex, lies and murder on the high seas. we take a look at new evidence shedding light on the porthole mystery.
