the it‘uié: h ‘::r. the third round. and a quick in the third round. and a quick thought about the women's draw? most interest surrounds serena williams who is 183 in the world because she had a baby in september. like andy murray, very few tournaments under her belt but ceded by the all—england club to create a balanced draw because of her incredible history where she has won the title seven times here. she cannot buy a top seed and other third round but at that stage she could come up against ukrainian fifth seed elina svitolina. looking forward to it. thank you, russell. wimbledon starts on monday. time for a look at the weather. here's darren bett. another hot and sunny day across most parts of the uk. in england some of the highest cabbages are across the north and here it is a beautiful scene in ambleside. very different to what is waiting out in aberdeenshire with a very different look across many eastern parts of
1:31 pm
scotland, much cooler and grey up with this low cloud coming in and relu cta nt to with this low cloud coming in and reluctant to burn off over land and even drifting further south to hug the coast of england. away from here you don't have to go to bar inland to get the sunshine and it is hotting up. cabbages not quite as high as yesterday but still 30 degrees like the —— temperatures. widely temperatures in the high 20s, not as hot as yesterday in scotland and a bit cooler on the north sea coast. there is an easterly breeze again which is why we have the heat more in the west and we will find that low cloud coming back inland again overnight after a lovely evening. cloudy skies further into scotla nd evening. cloudy skies further into scotland and england and towards the midlands and west country and the west after the heat it will be another one night. into the weekend and for most of us we have more heat, more sunshine and more dry weather but there is a chance of one
1:32 pm
too heavy and perhaps thundery showers in the south—west. even this rogue weather front might produce a shower in the far north—west but more likely in the south—west near that low pressure coming from iberia. we are changing wind direction as the pressure begins to fall in the second part of the weekend, drawing up a lot of heat from the near continent and also more humility in the south. the start of the weekend, maybe a bit misty and low cloud but it will soon burn off and then pretty much wall—to—wall sunshine and like winds with temperatures widely in the mid to high 20s again. a bit cooler on those north sea coasts with onshore breezes but the winds picked up on sunday with a south—easterly and a chart of a shower in the south—west of england and wales, not far away from northern ireland late on but otherwise another dry day, warm if not hot and temperatures continuing to rise in the south—east, 30 or 31 here and that will be hotter than
1:33 pm
the past couple of days. looking into next week, not much rain at all, perhaps a few showers in south wales and the south—west of england but for wimbledon it will be a hot and dry start. thank you. a reminder of our main story this lunchtime... the hillsborough match commander david duckenfield is to stand trial for the manslaughter by gross negligence of 95 liverpool football fans. that's all from the bbc news at one so it's goodbye from me and on bbc one we nowjoin the bbc‘s news teams where you are. good afternoon, it's 1.30pm and here's your latest sports news. we start with tennis. wimbledon gets under way on monday, the draw was just a couple of hours ago and we now know andy murray will play benoit paire in the first round, if he decides he's fit enough. the two—time winner has only
1:34 pm
recently returned to the court after almost a year out following hip sugery. his french opponent is the last player murray beat at wimbledon, however he's still yet to confirm if he'll definitely play at the all—england club. but he has been included in the draw. let's have a look at some other highlights from that draw, and defending champion roger federer will play serbia's dusan lajovic. british number one kyle edmund plays australian qualifier alex bolt, and there's a tasty looking match—up between grigor dimitrov and three—time major winner stan wawrinka. in the women's draw, johanna konta plays russia's natalia vikhlya ntseva. seven—time winner serena williams plays arantxa rus of the netherlands and the reigning champion garbine muguruza plays britain's naomi broady. and the former australia cricket captain steve smith played his first no world cup action today so time to
1:35 pm
reflect on yesterday's offence. england came second in their group and so will face colombia. england are into the last 16 hours group g's runners—up. it was last night's defeated belgium that has plotted their cause in this tournament and a cold from the further sunderland and manchester united striker that sealed belgium's cool united striker that sealed belgium's cool. england made eight changes and with the sausages they brought in, every outfield player in the squad has now featured at this world cup. that is something manager said was important as atonement goes on. not a classic match but one moment that might be remembered for is this u nfortu nate might be remembered for is this unfortunate celebration. not only could he not find the net from inside the goal mouth, but the chelsea striker also managed to put the ball into his own face. he
1:36 pm
managed to try and on it over on social media. what that result means for england as they will face colombia in the last 16. if they we re colombia in the last 16. if they were to beat the south american side, england are now on the side of the draw that means they will avoid the draw that means they will avoid the likes of brazil, france and argentina and you can see they will play either sweden or switzerland in the quarterfinals if england make it that far. it also means they have a slightly easier schedule getting around russia. they are now back at their base just north of st petersburg and on tuesday they will go 400 miles to the east to moscow to play the last 16 match against colombia. it is much cooler in the russian capital than the likes of volgograd down in the south. should england win that match they will go for a quarterfinal in samarra, further east, where they will play either sweden or switzerland. that is on the afternoon of saturday seventh july. if you want a dream even further, it is based to moscow
1:37 pm
for the semifinal. it is the same ground that will stage the final on july 15. that may just ground that will stage the final on july 15. that mayjust be a fortnight away but still a long way to go for the single inside. —— the england side. england side. england will play colombia on tuesday after the south americans are secured a 1—0 win over senegal. the former england winners says colombia will be difficult to beat. they will not be a walkover. as we've seen on the day, when they turnit we've seen on the day, when they turn it on they can beat anybody. colombia will not lie down and say, we've got this far, it's great for us, they will want to win it and will be thinking the same as england is thinking, that it is a very winnable game. they will be watching england and thinking they can beat them. they have experience and technical players. they have a big following of fans over here. it will
1:38 pm
bea following of fans over here. it will be a cracking atmosphere and cracking the embodiment has a very good chance. lewis hamilton was fastest in first practice at the austrian grand prix. the world championship leader was just over one tenth of a second quicker over his team—mate with his title rival, sebastian vettel fourth quickest. the second practice gets under way at tpm. the and the former australia cricket captain steve smith played his first competitive match since being banned for ball—tampering in march. he scored 61 off 41 balls for the toronto nationals in the first global t20 canada league. smith's12—month ban only applies to matches in australia and he said that playing was part of his rehabilitation. that's all the sport for now. i'll be back for you later at tpm. let's talk about one of our main story here today. after ten hours of talks in brussels, eu leaders have reached an agreement on migration.
1:39 pm
italy, which has begun turning away migrant boats, said it was satisfied and that it no longer stood alone. under the deal, member states agreed to share responsibility for migrants rescued from the mediterranean. aquarius, the migrant rescue ship that's been the focus of international attention in the past few weeks, has now docked in the french port city of marseille after being banned from italian and maltese ports. there is now a question of whether this and other ngo ships can continue to rescue migrants in the mediterranean. 0ur europe reporter gavin lee is on board and has been speaking to the ship's doctor. they started by talking about the mood on the ship. unfortunately, in the last two weeks we've just seen more and more politicisation of this and we've seen games being played by politicians with the people that we rescue at sea being used as pawns. the italian government has refused
1:40 pm
entry to port for safe disembarkation several times now to ngos. likewise, we see that malta was putting up resistance. and this type of situation is essentially not sustainable. what more for the aquarius? can this ship carry on? can these operations carry on? now we're finding that ngos such as ourselves here on the aquarius are being gradually criminalised and sidelined from being able to do this type of work. if the authorities controlling the search and rescue zone are not willing to let us do thatjob, of course we're going to have to start questioning what we are doing out here. but in the meantime, we're going to continue to be present and try to do thatjob.
1:41 pm
a hosepipe ban is being introduced this weekend — due to the ongoing heatwave. northern ireland water is appealing for people not to use waterfor washing cars, filling pools, and sprinkling gardens. it comes as temperatures are set to hit 29c, which is just a fraction lower than highs of 30.5c yesterday. the independence and safety of people with arthritis is being put at risk because councils aren't providing them with information on what help they are entitled to, according to a report out today from arthritis uk. the charity says many living with the condition are missing out on vital aids and assistance equipment, as they they are unaware of a local authority's legal duty to provide certain support items.
1:42 pm
earlier liam o'toole, chief exec of arthritis research uk, and arthritus sufferer sue patey spoke to the victoria derbyshire programme. there are 17 million people in the uk with arthritis or associated conditions and we know that one of the effects of that arthritis gradually, little by little can steal away your independence. we wa nted steal away your independence. we wanted to look at availability of aids and adaptation to keep people independent. the report showed 95% of people we spoke to her error using aids helped with the quality of life and independence but the thing that bothered us was that in england, local authorities have a legal duty to provide information to people and advice about aids and
1:43 pm
adaptations but also to provide free aids and adaptations to those people who are eligible. the shocking thing is that eight out of ten people who are eligible were not getting any help at all and 50% of the people that we spoke to were spending their own money that we spoke to were spending their own money on that we spoke to were spending their own money on aids and adaptation. why? that's 80% of people who are not aware there is help available to them. we think the local authorities wa nt to them. we think the local authorities want to help but they need some support. we would like them to fulfil their legal duty but we'd also like government to support them with advice and good practice guidance so that there are good ways of providing this service and reaching out to people. this is not just about the money, because it makes sense. we'd like local authorities to understand that actually, if you put in a grab rail
1:44 pm
in someone's baffling, it can stop them slipping over so they will not turn up at a very busy a & e. if you can do the things in the kitchen and around the house that can keep people living independently for longer, it means that people won't end up having to go into residential care. itjust sort of makes sense. it's a win — win situation for everybody, seemingly. it's a good way to use your resources. everybody, seemingly. it's a good way to use your resourceslj everybody, seemingly. it's a good way to use your resources. i know you've bought the aids to help you with your own money. you've bought the aids to help you with your own moneylj you've bought the aids to help you with your own money. i have. i was diagnosed originally with arthritis in my knees when i was quite young. how young? this was about 12. i had lots of sports injuries, which is one way that osteoarthritis occurs. i caught with that when i was young and you just get on with life. later
1:45 pm
oni and you just get on with life. later on i had back surgery, i've had three major operations on my back, because of the surgery and injury, i have osteoarthritis there. when i left hospital after my last operation, 8—9 years ago, i was provided with a perching stool which for those with arthritis, you will know what i talk about. what is it? it's a stool but it is angled with sights on it and if you have arthritis and you don't have sides to your chairs, it is difficult to stand up let alone get up and walk. so it has hand rails, the and it is angled and is that that that is angled and is that that that is angled that is really useful. you can sit anywhere in the kitchen. i usedit can sit anywhere in the kitchen. i used it most in the kitchen. i don't need it at the moment but it's there ifi need it at the moment but it's there ifldo need it at the moment but it's there if i do need it. in a moment we'll have all the business news, but first the headlines on bbc news: david duckenfield — the match
1:46 pm
commander at hillsborough — will face trial for the manslaughter by gross negligence of 95 football supporters. eu leaders warn that a huge and serious gap remains between them and the uk over brexit as they begin to discuss the issue. five people are shot dead and others after a gunman opens fire in a local newspaper newsroom in the us. edi in the us are now seeing a man has been charged with five murders. from sunday, the fee paid each time a cash machine is used — by banks to the machine operator — will be cut. then it'll be cut each year until 2021. link, which oversees cash machines, has says it's vital for the sustainability of the network.
1:47 pm
consumer group which? claims its causing 300 atms to close a month, but that number is disputed by link. tata steel and tissenkrupp are close to agreeing terms on a merger that will create europe's second—biggest steel—maker, after arcelor mittal. sources have told the bbc that the deal, which has been under negotiation for more than a year, could be concluded in the next few days. it will see tata steel's uk plants merged into a pan—european venture with annual sales of about £13 billion. the british economy has unexpectedly grown by 0.2% in the first three months of 2018, according to the office for national statistics. not 0.1% as was originally estimated. services output rose by 0.3% on the month in april — its fastest growth since november 2017, and a 1.6% rise from the same period in the previous year. 0ur
1:48 pm
our main story is a c02. a shortage. we're going to talk about the c02 shortage now, as we've been hearing all week various food and drink businesses have been disrupted by the shortage. c02 is widely used in the food processing and drinks industries. it puts the fizz into beer, cider and soft drinks, and is used in food packaging to extend the shelf life of salads, fresh meat and poultry. several uk and mainland european producers of carbon dioxide closed for maintenance or scaled down operations which has been rather disruptive to business. business as you would not have imagined would have been affected. the latest business to report production problems is warburton's, the uk's biggest producer of crumpets. it said it has been forced to halt production at two of its four plants. let's have a look at a small business that you can imagine has been affected, a brewery. joining us now is jaega wise who runs a micro brewery in east london. it has affected us mostly on the
1:49 pm
bottle inside. this week i had 2000 litres of beer that was meant to be sent off and then i get up phone call from the bottom are saying we cannot take it because we have no see to —— c02. that's approximately £4000 i have stuck that was meant to be going for bottling which can't happen now. can you do anything with it? for the moment it will have to sit ina it? for the moment it will have to sit in a tank while we figure out a solution. we can do other things with their beer but that means we will be down on bottles, so it will bea will be down on bottles, so it will be a real test for all the breweries to see how good are the breweries to see how good their stock control is. iimagine see how good their stock control is. i imagine bottles beer, yes, but i imagine cask ale doesn't involve c02. it's perfectly possible to make cask beer without c02 so you have
1:50 pm
natural carbonation from the used. but the amount we use of c02 in the brewery, we use it to move beer in between times, purge tights, we generally use at a lot in the brewery itself. it's a problem for cask producers as well as bottles and coax. are you managing to get c02 yourself at the moment? at the moment, yes, buti c02 yourself at the moment? at the moment, yes, but i am in a one bottle inn, one bottle out policy. there is no access. have they put up process ? there is no access. have they put up process? they haven't, they have been good. i think it depends who your supplier is but price—wise, we are your supplier is but price—wise, we a re pretty your supplier is but price—wise, we are pretty much 0k. your supplier is but price—wise, we are pretty much ok. but you reckon you will do over the next few weeks? i'm going to keep my fingers crossed and hope for the past. we are not any crisis yet, i would say still keep on going to the pubs and enjoying the football, but if this carries on for much longer we will be in trouble. can you put all the beer you've got into bottles into
1:51 pm
casks? that's possible. so that's essentially what you will be selling in the next few weeks. we shall see. fax oh much indeed. british defence giant bae systems has won a multi—billion pound contract from the australian government to build nine new warships, marking a significant victory for british military exports. bae beat italian and spanish rivals to win a large slice of the £19.6 billion spending programme. the ships will be based on anti—submarine frigates that bae is building for the uk's royal navy. however, the new warships will be built in australia by a local workforce. and staying in australia, its won a major trade dispute over its pioneering plain packaging for cigarettes, in a decision handed down by the world trade organization. they were selling cigarettes and very drab looking packages. the

1:53 pm
falls because of a successful eu summit over the last few days in the migration question. that's all the business news. i'll be back in about an hour with more. for decades, the people of central show you have requested that ayers rockis show you have requested that ayers rock is not claimed. in october the rope that makes it possible will be removed. the bbc reporter well then we must discover that her family played a role in taking ownership of bilirubin. uluru, also known as ayers rock, dates back more than 500 million years. for decades, there's been a bitter row over the controversial practice of climbing the rock. there are signs here at the base of the climb clearly saying, please don't climb, it's against traditional law, and translated into six languages.
1:54 pm
but still, every day we've been here there's been a steady stream of climbers. have you guys heard that the aboriginal people don't want people to climb? yes, i do, and i understand that, but i'm going to do it anyway. indigenous communities have long campaigned for the behaviour which they consider deeply offensive to end but say the threat of losing the tourist dollar was enormous pressure, traditional owner sammy wilson saying it was like a gun being pointed at their heads. and talk they did. in a historic vote last year, the board decided to shut the climb down from october next year.
1:55 pm
when the first white explorers came to the area in 1873, they named the rock ayers rock after senior australian politician at the time henry ayers. while i was working on this story, i realised that henry ayers was my great, great, great, great uncle. i tell western desert elder alison hunt about this family connection, and that i'm sorry. ..for my family's role in any horrific or disrespectful treatment of indigenous people. the sharing of stories like this, she says,
1:56 pm
is needed now in order to heal, rather than the conquering of the rock. let's catch up now with the weather prospects back home. good afternoon. the weekend on the way which we will take a look at but another hot and sunny day for most parts of the uk today. a beautiful picture at cumbria, much lovelier than this picture from a weather watcher in aberdeenshire. it is a very different flavour to the weather across the north—east and eastern parts of scotland if you're stuck underneath that low cloud. it is heading southwards across the course of a stream. inland, not too far inland and further west it is hotter. the temperatures are not quite as high at the stage as they
1:57 pm
we re quite as high at the stage as they were yesterday at the same time but were yesterday at the same time but we are still looking at 30 degrees across parts of western northern ireland, west wales and london. it is not as hot as yesterday in scotla nd is not as hot as yesterday in scotland and a cooler near the north sea close. not just scotland and a cooler near the north sea close. notjust because of the ca i’s sea close. notjust because of the cars but because of the easterly breeze. that has pushed the heat further west but it will draw back of the low cloud that is out of the north sea and pressure demand across scotland, towards the england and further west. after the heat of today, it will be another night. enter the weekend a lot of heat still this weekend, a lot of dry weather and more sunshine to come. thus the chance of a couple of heavy showers in the south—west. even the wea k showers in the south—west. even the weak whether frontier could trigger a shower in the north—west but generally high pressure in charge on saturday. the pressure falls on sunday and perhaps a few showers around that area of low pressure.
1:58 pm
the wind direction changes slightly and we pick up some more hot air from the new content on somewhat humid day. saturday could start misty with some low cloud but it doesn't stop long. then it is pretty much wall—to—wall sunshine across the uk. the wind is still light and cooler around the north sea coast but otherwise temperatures are widely in the mid to high 20s. most places are still dry on sunday with some strong sunshine continuing. we have a stronger so visually went on sunday and perhaps the terms of and a the south—west of england and wales, maybe to the south of northern ireland. you can see the highest temperatures are in the south—east. they are picking up here this weekend and it will be hotter thanit this weekend and it will be hotter than it has been over the past few days, but only in the south—east. enter next week, very little rain. most losers will remain dry with plenty of sunshine, high temperatures. perhaps if you show us towards the south—west by the dry start to wimbledon.
1:59 pm
hello, you're watching afternoon live. today at two: the match commander at hillsborough will face trial for manslaughter of 95 people. huge and serious difference remain, says the eu's chief negotiator, as he calls representatives back to brussels for talks. on brexit we have made progress, but huge and serious problems remain, particularly on ireland and northern ireland. one of the first firefighters to enter grenfell tower tells the inquiry how he lent out of a window to try to put out flames. firefighters are tackling a fire on the 12th floor of a block of flats in london. and
