4:06 pm
the map as far as england fans are concerned. this is a city that has opened up to the world, it's full of panama fans, english people, and they will be celebrating this result tonight, for sure. sarah raynsford, thank you very much. new measures to tackle obesity in england have been announced by the government. they include plans to ban shops displaying unhealthy snacks at checkouts, tighter restrictions on television adverts, and a ban on selling energy drinks to children. the government said the cost of obesity was ‘too great to ignore' but labour accused the prime minister of a dossier of failure on children's health. here's our health correspondent, dominic hughes. the government's first obesity strategy for england, unveiled in 2016, was seen by many health campaigners as a missed opportunity. ever since, ministers have been under pressure to go further, and so many of the measures that were ditched two years ago are now back on the agenda. parents are very worried. we have overtaken america in terms of obesity rates for ii—year—olds, we have one of the biggest obesity problems in europe,
4:07 pm
and this is a big statement. we will halve childhood obesity by 2030 as a national ambition, we will take a wide range of measures in the supermarkets, restaurants and sandwich shops that we buy snacks from. the new obesity strategy includes a proposal to ban tv advertising ofjunk food before the 9pm watershed. there will also be curbs on supermarket promotions such as buy one get one free deals on sugary, high—fat foods. you and all primary school pupils in england will be encouraged to get are you active through schemes like walking or running a daily mile. are we are really delighted to see this new childhood obesity plan. it's brave and it's ambitious and it's where we should be as a nation. the scottish government also plans to announce tough measures to reduce obesity, an issue that is now firmly established as one of the big public health challenges facing the uk. but after what was widely seen as a false start,
4:08 pm
the government's plans will now face close scrutiny. dominic hughes, bbc news. a 15—year—old boy has been stabbed to death in a fight at a community centre in east london. three teenage boys have been arrested on suspicion of murder. police said they were called to the centre in romford just after 9—o'clock last night after fighting broke out as about 100 people were leaving a birthday party. votes are being counted in turkey, where president recep tayyip erdogan says there's been a high turnout in the snap presidential and parliamentary elections. mr erdogan is looking to win his second 5—year term as president. he's faced a tough electoral battle with muharrem ince, a former physics teacher who has energised the opposition. selin giritjoins us now from istanbul.
4:09 pm
this was quite a gamble for mr erdogan. it is. this wasn't what he had expected to start with when he called the snap election is over a month ago and brought forward the elections that were scheduled to ta ke elections that were scheduled to take place in november of 2019, he wasn't expecting to face such a fierce fight. the opposition candidate of the main opposition candidate, the chp, has put up a fearless ca m pa ig n candidate, the chp, has put up a fearless campaign and managed to galvanise the demoralised voters in the opposition. today we are expecting the first initial results to be announced within the next few hours. polls closed over an hour ago. when the supreme electoral board ago. when the supreme electoral boa rd lifts ago. when the supreme electoral board lifts the ban on the announcement of the official
4:10 pm
results, we will be reporting them, and that is expected in the next two 01’ and that is expected in the next two or three hours. a lot is at stake in these elections. more than 56 million voters have been casting their votes since early this morning for presidential and parliamentary elections at time. if president erdogan secures another victory in the presidential elections in the first round, then he will become this ever more powerful figure first round, then he will become this ever more powerfulfigure in turkish politics with the authority toissue turkish politics with the authority to issue decrees with the force of law. appoint his own cabinet and even seniorjudges. the opposition argues that would erode turkish democracy. as we speak, the opposition candidate muharrem nce has been calling opposition supporters to gather in front of the supreme supporters to gather in front of the supreme electoral board to monitor the fairness of the vote. because there have been allegations and
4:11 pm
rumours about vote rigging, especially in the south—east of the country. but now it's time to wait. the atmosphere is tense in turkey. we have yet to wait for a few more hours to see what the voters have decided. world a cement president erdogan in power, or will they change turkey's direction. one thing to clarify, going into the election he formed what was called the people's alliance with the mhp. if mr erdogan gets the vote, how will that work? there is a lot of mathematics going into that. people have been voting either separately for the party they support, or for the alliance of either the governing party and the right—wing mhp party do you have mentioned, or the opposition. there is an alliance of three parties, central left, and three parties, central left, and three mac. a right—wing party and an islamist party as well. and there is
4:12 pm
a kurdish vote that will matter hugely. —— centre—left and mhp. how they vote will be very important because of the pro—kurdish hdp makes their way into parliament it could mean the ak party and the mhp lose seats in the parliament and that will make things very complex. police in zimbabwe say 49 people were injured in the explosion yesterday at a political rally held by president emmerson mnangagwa. police say they're expecting more casualties to come forward. an investigation is under way at bulawayo white city stadium where the blast took place. president mnangagwa says next week's elections will still take place. eu leaders are meeting in brussels to discuss europe's
4:13 pm
strategy on migration. 16 of the bloc‘s 28 member states have gathered to try to mend the rifts that have emerged over the arrival of african and middle—eastern migrants. the talks are taking place ahead of a european council summit of all 28 leaders later this week. let's cross live now to our correspondent kevin connolly in brussels. there is a lot riding on this. for some of the actors at the summit and the eu, particularly angela merkel. i think that's right. the whole issue of migration is an enormous problem for the eu. i suppose it's one of the great historical phenomena of our age and it has left this generation of day to day politicians to try to find an answer. angela merkel is under particular immediate pressure because some of her coalition
4:14 pm
partners want her to do a lot more at the european level to stop what are called secondary migrants moving to germany, in other words people who have already registered in one eu member state but then want to move on to germany. her coalition partners are not happy with that. an original draft of the possible conclusions to today's meeting show that her concerns, if you like, were being addressed, but that angered a lot of other european leaders who have problems of their own in all of this, and that particularly means italy. it is very often the country first arrival. it says it isn't interested in hearing of germany's problems with second arrivals. it wa nts problems with second arrivals. it wants more to be done to close external borders in general and also to deal with the people in their country who first arrived. because of that country of first arrival is italy. the italian leader, giuseppe co nte, italy. the italian leader, giuseppe conte, has come to shake things up. he says he has come with big new ideas and new ways of looking at the
4:15 pm
problem from a european perspective. he hasn't told us what they are but he is determined to change the conversation in brussels on migration. going into these talks a couple of lines were coming into us from the newsroom, particularly from france's president macron saint eu leaders should not betray their values. a rebuke at italy. how much have those values changed and how much of a threat is this to eu cohesiveness? it is a threat to cohesion, of course. you have a pretty direct disagreement between the newly elected italian government, which has a pretty clear mandate to control immigration, and angela merkel. in terms of emmanuel macron's remarks, you can give them a lofty interpretation as has been seen a lofty interpretation as has been seenin a lofty interpretation as has been seen in some a lofty interpretation as has been seen in some news a lofty interpretation as has been seen in some news agencies but i would be inclined to say that lots of european leaders show up at these
4:16 pm
events always prepared to talk about european values and community and acting collectively because that is the theology of the european union. the practical problems arise when you see the eu try to fix a problem and we are now some years on from a proposed solution where other member states would help italy by taking allocations of migrants from italy and moving them to those other member states. that system, which would have been a very clear expression of european values, entirely failed. a footnote to today's meeting perhaps, is the simple fact that among those countries who refused that reallocation system, other countries of central and eastern europe, like hungary and poland, their leaders are not here today. they are not interested in solutions at the european level that would create what they consider to be problems for them at their own national level. so of course you always get talk of unity and values here, but there is a lot of national self
4:17 pm
interest at play just there is a lot of national self interest at playjust below there is a lot of national self interest at play just below the surface. the number of asylum seekers arriving in europe has fallen since the crisis erupted in 2015. italy and malta have banned charity rescue boats from coming to their ports. one of them, the aquarius, is close to the libyan coast. from there our correspondent, gavin lee, reports. well, this is the charity—run ship the aquarius, which has found itself at the centre of a political storm in how europe's leaders deal with the issue of illegal migration over the seas from africa. this ship has been travelling since wednesday afternoon from the port of valencia because the spanish government allowed, as a one—off, this ship to port. a few days before that, the italian and maltese governments said they couldn't come to port. they accused ngos and charity—run vessels of encouraging people
4:18 pm
smuggling and essentially being a taxi service for illegal migrants coming from libya. the charities disagreed strongly saying this was a humane way to rescue those in need and people would risk their lives anyway given the dire situation in libya. right now there is a rescue operation going on, an exercise, a drill ahead of approaching the search and rescue zone close to libya. they will be at sea for the next two and a half days and they expect to pick up migrants. in the meantime those european leaders are meeting over how to handle migration. one of the issues, according to a senior source at the council, say many leaders agree with salvini over the points that these charity boats are a hindrance. so the issue is what happens with these boats and what happens when they pick up migrants and where can they go? that was gavin lee. the headlines on bbc news:

4:21 pm
performance they could not have dreamt of. every world cup match reveals more about this england team. from tunisian resilience, now they faced panama's passion. for them, just being here is the climax of a journey. england are just getting started. the header from john journey. england are just getting started. the headerfrom john stones has gone in. inside eight minutes, john stones' goal had beaten off the tension. soon after, farallonjesse lingard brought the transformer. a penalty and one man to trust with it. how emphatic was that? harry kane's conversion set the foundations for flamboyance. lingard spent the first half getting roughed up. it was time for a silky touch. jesse lingard fires in a beautiful third for england. if that third strike was special, england's fourth was beauty in a different style, set piece from the training ground,
4:22 pm
stones back to finish it, second goal to give the defender or world cup strikes and wayne rooney. panama's cup strikes and wayne rooney. pa nama's naivety was cup strikes and wayne rooney. panama's naivety was exposed, and just like tunisia, they wrestle kane to the fore. the spurs striker needs every chance for the golden boot and after that penalty, he went out in front in the charts with a flick on. a hat—trick completed. 6—0 in the heat, england could look forward but they lost track at the back to lead panama infor they lost track at the back to lead panama in for their first world cup goal. for the fans in the stadium and 4 million back home, a strike of the per significance. for england, it barely changed the mood, and for kane, the goals means of football to ta ke kane, the goals means of football to take on. is the day they start to believe. fantastic. so proud of the boys. just enjoying being here. we knew it was going to be tough, it
4:23 pm

4:24 pm
be heading there. we expect others tojoin them by be heading there. we expect others to join them by coming through poland. we expect an enthusiastic crowd, and perhaps even more now that england have put in this kind of performance. people did not believe in the team believe that russia could pull off a world cup like this. people are starting to believe in both of those things and belgium is the one to watch from everyone. our fantastic tournament for england and the hosts, russia. many thanks. the second of the day's world cup games has just got under way, japan v senegal in group h. notable beacuse england will play one of the teams who qualify from this group in the last 16. it's senegal who have taken the early lead. the liverpool player sadio mane getting the final touch. he capitalised on a mistake from the japanese goalkeeper. a costly mistake because both of these side we re mistake because both of these side were winners in their opening game. you can watch it live on bbc one.
4:25 pm
these are live pictures. 2a minutes gonein these are live pictures. 2a minutes gone in the first half. senegal are leading, 1—0. both teams won their opening group game, so a significant one in determining who england will play from this group in the last 16. england's cricketers risk missing their chance of achieving a first series whitewash over australia in any format of cricket as they struggle in the final match of their odi series at old trafford four wickets from moeen ali helped bowl the tourists out for 205, with just over 15 overs to spare. but a top order collapse from england swung the match in australia's favour. england are 121—8. liam plunkett was the last man out. 85 runs needed from 108 bowls of england are to secure that whitewash. that's all the sport for now.

you can find more on all those stories on the bbc sport website. that's bbc.co.uk/sport, including the first french grand prix in ten years, and the queen's final on bbc two. lewis hamilton is leading at the moment. valtteri bottas has crashed in the opening stages, a dramatic start. novak djokovic is up against marin cilic in the tennis. that is live on bbc two. back to you. we are spoilt for choice as far as sport goes. the health secretary jeremy hunt has described the warnings by airbus about brexit uncertainty as "completely inappropriate. " earlier this week, airbus warned it could pull out of the uk if the country exits the single market and customs union with no transition deal. speaking on the andrew marr show, mr hunt said the government had to "stand firm" and "ignore siren voices." i just thought it was completely inappropriate for businesses to be making these kinds of threats, for one simple reason,
4:27 pm
we are in an absolutely critical moment in the brexit discussions and what that means is that we need to get behind theresa may, to deliver the best possible brexit, a clean brexit and what businesses want, and i was in business for 1h years, they want clarity. and the more that we undermine theresa may, the more likely we are to end up with a fudge, which will be a disaster for everyone. our political correspondent jonathan blake has more on jeremy hunt's criticism of airbus over brexit. some strong words from the health secretary in response to the warnings from airbus and bmw and siemens, the latest multinational company to warn about brexit and the implications of leaving without a deal. it is different to the language government ministers were using when airbus made that warning, they were striking a reassuring tone, saying we understand your concerns, but the best thing is if we get on with getting a good deal
4:28 pm
and the no—deal scenario has to be on the table, but we don't see it happening. what you saw from jeremy hunt was a stronger line and you heard him saying that we should stand firm, resist these siren voices saying it is inappropriate for businesses to be making warnings. airbus and siemens take a different view. they have voiced concerns in public. so it will be interesting to see what reaction the business leaders have to that. but it is a tricky time for the prime minister. because she heads into the next round of negotiations in brussels next week. saudi arabia has become the last country in the world to permit women to drive. the move is part of a programme of modernisation under crown prince mohamed bin salman. but leading women's rights activists who challenged the ban are still in prison. from riyadh, orla guerin reports.

4:30 pm
in a few years you will see that saudi society is different, and the community, mainly. people will be more open, they will be more tolerant. really, a couple of years, five years maximum, saudi arabia will change a lot, for the better. but some saudi women are not free to drive today. this is lujain al—hathloul, who has challenged the ban for years. instead of celebrating, she is now behind bars, along with other leading activists rounded up last month. when i met lujain three years ago, she was expecting a hard road ahead. how long do you think it will take for women here to achieve equal rights? do you think it can be achieved? equal rights, the entire package, my god, it would take forever.
