this is bbc news. the headlines. conservative brexiteers say they wa nt conservative brexiteers say they want more details about the plans for the uk's future relationship with the eu, agreed yesterday. a nation expects, england arrive at the kosmos arena and samara as they prepare to take on sweden for a place in the world cup semifinals. the players are well prepared, well recovered from the other night. they know the opportunity they have, and we are looking forward to the challenge. i am sarah rainsford in the stadium in samara where the sun is shining, the stands are filling up is shining, the stands are filling up with fans and the excitement is building. and millions of people will be watching the game in pubs and big screens up watching the game in pubs and big screens up and down the country
today. this is the scene live in sunderland where fans are already gathering. in other news, 12 thai boys stuck in a cave sent letters to their parents assuring them they are fine. police investigating the poisoning of a couple in wiltshire last weekend warned that the operation could take months. in hardtalk, stephen sacre meets jerusalem's 2—term mirror. —— two term mayor. good afternoon. the prime minister has warned her cabinet she'll no longer tolerate public dissent over brexit following its collective agreement to back her plan for britain's future relationship with the eu. at a marathon 12—hour meeting of the cabinet
at chequers yesterday, theresa may told ministers, it was their "duty" to agree a blueprint for brexit. the eu has said it will "assess proposals to see if they are workable and realistic." here's our political correspondent, jessica parker. a grand setting to try and come up with a grand plan. yesterday, theresa may won cabinet's approval for her proposals on ourfuture relationship with the eu. some leave supporters will scorn it, cabinet brexiteers must sell it. the bit that has not been highlighted is what we agreed yesterday is that we would also step up no deal planning. we do not want that, we do not want no deal. the deal they do want has not yet been fully published but proposals include harmonisation with eu rules on goods to allow frictionless trade but parliament would have oversight. free movement would come to an end, a mobility framework takes its place, and there would be an independent trade policy for the uk. today conservative mps have been
invited to hear more. lots of questions. tory mps may be getting a brexit briefing from the chief whip today but it is monday when they are due to meet direct with the prime minister. the likely demand, detail. but even if backbench brexiteers end y, the cabinet's approval of the plans begs the question, who will the sceptics now rally around 7 maybe this man. prominent brexiteerjacob rees—mogg was ready to air his concerns today. we need to know the details. as with eggs, an egg that is very softly boiled isn't boiled at all. a very soft brexit means we haven't left, we simply are a rule taker. that is not something that this country voted for, it's not what the prime minister promised. in the heat, the cabinet agreed and there is a danger that the mood could cool. but crucially the eu would need to warm to the proposals as well. it is a fudge, it is an attempt to placate both sides of the conservative party.
it's now going to run into serious problems in the negotiations with the european union and i suspect that what lies behind it is that the hardliners will now blame europe for any mess that results. yesterday's marathon meeting did at least produce an appearance of unity and a plan. now the next test, will it stay the distance? and jessica is with me now. we have heard from a number of individuals in that report. but we continue to get some feedback from the news yesterday. yes, one of the things going on today was that conservative mps were invited to talk to the chief whip about the plans. we have not had the full details and terms of the plans, but it is something that tory mps are keen to year, details. one of the mps we so going into downing street was nigel evans, i conservative brexiteer. he said he
had lots of questions and tears come out of the meeting and said it isa it is a pragmatic brexit that is being offered for parliament and business. it looks like we are being consistent with people that voted for leave. he said, my reservation was that this could be closer to something, but it is far closer to the brexit—lite want to see. theresa may will be hoping to continue to win people over and she has this face—to—face meeting with her parliament an month —— with her party on monday. rudiger dup stand on this? she will need their support ioo%. one of the things they have been talking about is trying to promote frictionless trade, very important for the border. something we have had in the last few minutes is the taoiseach, the republic of ireland, tweeting, good phone call with the prime minister, he has obesity been talking to the prime minister,
welcome proposals from the british government which can input into talks on the future relationship. we await detailed the white paper next week before agreeing a position. lots of people have been saying that the proposals which have emerged in the proposals which have emerged in the last 12 hours would not be accepted the last 12 hours would not be a cce pted by the last 12 hours would not be accepted by the european union, there is no way, but that is a positive tweet from your varadkar. thank you very much. england is expected to come to standstill this afternoon as its footballers take on sweden for a place in the world cup semi—finals. the match, which is being played in the russian city of samara, gets under way in less than an hour. the winner will face either russia or croatia. our sports correspondent is pitch side at the kosmos arena in samara. we are on tenterhooks. what is it like? you can probably hear that it is very loud, it is starting to build. the flags are
getting into position, the fans arriving. we are 20 metres away from the england band that have been beating their way through this tournament already with fans getting behind them. england have arrived, they are not on the pitch, but they will be coming out soon to warm up for the game. we can sense the anticipation back in england because through social media we are seeing the videos and the buzz, and the england players theatres spotting them on. harry kane talked about how you until not long ago he was that find it in beer thrown over him and now he is playing at the world cup. the team sheet is in and england are unchanged from their game against colombia. all the talk about whether a leader —— with a dele alli we be dropped and eric dier, the penalty kill, which come in for him, it looks like the manager has stuck with the team that beat colombia on penalties. in the last hour, gareth southgate has been speaking to gabby
logan of the bbc. i have been really grateful for the energy and the support we are feeling from home. we are proud to be in this situation and it is a privilege. we have got to focus on the job in and it is a privilege. we have got to focus on thejob in hand. we have a very tough opponent. we know the problems they pose and we know the areas in which we can hurt them. as areas in which we can hurt them. as a player, you have been in a quarterfinal in the euros. how does that compare to being the manager of england today? i am enjoying this more. we're having a fantastic experience, and we know how we have still got a lot of improvement to make. we've talked about defending better, creating more chances, and we have still got to do that today. we have got to focus on how we play and making sure we bring everything to the table, but the players are well prepared, well recovered from the other night. they know the opportunity they have. we are
looking forward to the challenge. opportunity they have. we are looking forward to the challengem feels like an age ago, the first game against tunisia, you said you would be giving the rallying cry in the dressing room. you have seen the leadership qualities of your players grow, has leadership qualities of your players row has an one's leadership qualities of your players grow, has anyone's voice growing? will anyone else be shouting in the dressing room? lots of leaders have emerged, some in the starting time, some not in the starting team. that is why that group have grown together. lots has been said about how tate sweden are, but our group are together, everyone can see that, so we hope we can bring our quality today. he spoke about england needing to defend better and they needing to defend better and they need to do that, they are the only tea m need to do that, they are the only team left in this tournament but have not kept a clean sheet yet. they have only beaten sweden twice in the last ten attempts of it is incredibly open. it is 50—50. when they step out in less than an hour, andi they step out in less than an hour, and i think england are coming out to train, when they do that later on, they will know that a side
ranked 12 places below them is all that stands between them and the semi final world cup place for the first time in 28 years, and as gareth southgate himself says, anything is possible. we hope for a miracle. thank you very much. let's find out how the fa ns very much. let's find out how the fans are doing. sarah rainsford is also in samara. she is outside the kosmos arena in samara. jairo the feeling? we have heard that the team have just, to practice. yes, we are outside the stadium with fa ns yes, we are outside the stadium with fans from all over the world, not just england. the number of england fa ns just england. the number of england fans has been growing but there are fa ns fans has been growing but there are fans from russia, who have painted the english flag on their faces, plenty of sweden supporters here as well. the swedish supporters are optimistic about this game, they know they are the underdogs to some extent but they are hopeful that they could be the ones that bring they could be the ones that bring the trophy home. english fans are telling me the opposite, convinced
that england can make it happen today. the fans here have come from bristol. you say you have been following england through this tournament but flying back and forwards. you must really want to see england succeed? definitely, it has cost a fortune but hopefully it will be worth it in the end. how has the atmosphere been? it has been quiet today, the quite so far for england fans. but i imagine as soon as we get in there and the band starts going it will be amazing. you have made it as far as the quarterfinal supporting england, what are you expecting today? quarterfinal supporting england, what are you expecting today7m quarterfinal supporting england, what are you expecting today? if we can play well today we have a great chance to win again. and as long as the team play well and try hard today, it has been a great tournament, lots of fun so let's hope it continues. there is massive pressure on the team, lots of people talking about this being england's best chance in decades. can they pull it off? i think so, it is our
best chance, but they're beating sides that have beat good sides, so they have beat some good sides, germany have gone out, we could be playing germany or brazil today, so we are playing the sites that have done that. we will do well today. there was a prediction? i think it will be 2—1 england. there was a prediction? i think it will be 2-1 england. 2-0. i am hoping i—0. maybe more of a realist at the end of the line. the swedish fa ns at the end of the line. the swedish fans have completely different predictions. the crowd are optimistic, hoping that england can make history, as gareth southgate has been saying. a very friendly, very warm crowd, people enjoying the sunshine in samara, the build—up, the music, the colour, the crowds, the music, the colour, the crowds, the beer, and looking forward to the game. england hoping this can be the moment, the first time in 28 years, that they have made it to a semifinal. the fans want the team to go all the way. sarah rainsford in samara,

1300 hrs of cctv footage as they try to work out the movements of the couple that have been most recently poisoned. last night, they revealed more details about where they had been on friday and saturday of last week from the youth hostel, from the hostel where mist sturges lives, through to the centre of salisbury and then to hear in amesbury where they both fell ill at the weekend. the atmosphere here is one of the sort of appreciation of what the emergency services are doing. we have been little boys coming along and given policemen lolly is the sort of encourage them and keep them are in this hot weather. we do know there are 100 counterterrorism officers who are working on this case now and it seems they are pretty much the looking for a needle ina pretty much the looking for a needle in a haystack where they try to work out what item was that this couple had handled and where they found it. thank you very much. theresa may warns her cabinet any
further dissention over brexit won't be tolerated — as ministers agree on a plan for the uk's future relationship with the eu. we are going to bring you some breaking news. he has been meeting north korean officials, they've been holding at talk of meeting to clarify items. we arejust talk of meeting to clarify items. we are just learning that north korea today have said it remains firm and steadfast in its resolve to give up its nuclear programmes. however, this may fault of the united states

the team were cut off when exploring the cave two weeks ago. sophie long reports. all—out preparations to bring the young footballers and their coach out of the cave are now under way, say those leading this rescue operation. one of the main priorities is still to reduce the water levels inside the cave, in the hope that they can bring the boy out without having to use full scuba gear. many of the boys can't swim. this rescue operation has always been a race against the clock, but now timing is more critical than ever. they say they want to get the boys out before their health deteriorates and before the heavy rain that is forecast, comes. the fear is that more water will rush into the cave, making conditions even worse than they were to begin with. the only way out of the cave remains the way they came in, but it is a dangerous passage. the tragic death of a former thai navy seal delivering air tanks to the cave yesterday underlined just how difficult this evacuation will be. translation: every cave diver
volunteer team reaches their limit at chamber three. they cannot go further than that. such a rescue mission has never happened before on this planet. it requires both knowledge and skills of the cave diver. messages were brought out by divers overnight. one of them from the 25—year—old coach who led the boys in there. "i am really sorry," he said to their parents. and promised to do his best to look after them. "please don't worry," say notes from the young footballers. "we are all strong." others requested their favourite foods and pleaded not to be given too much homework when they get out. letters have also been sent in from the boys' parents in the hope they will lift the boys' morale. to their coach they said, "we don't blame you." sophie long, bbc news, tham luang. danjohnson dan johnson is danjohnson is in tham luang and has the latest on the rescue operation.
it is still busy here, even after dark on the 14th day now at this ordealfor dark on the 14th day now at this ordeal for these dark on the 14th day now at this ordealfor these kids. it is nice to hear their puppy contact with their pa rents, hear their puppy contact with their parents, that of invaluable for them andi parents, that of invaluable for them and i think it is valuable for the pa rents. and i think it is valuable for the parents. the fact that the messages they the feeling quite well, strong and they have hoped themselves and they now know that their parents are out here waiting for them, they have sent their love and they can hopefully get those things that they asked for. their favourite food and hopefully no homework when they get out. it is nice that the parents have let the cliche that not to blame for any of those in their eyes. two weeks now since he led them in the case. there was that hope just them in the case. there was that hopejust a them in the case. there was that hope just a few days ago when they we re hope just a few days ago when they were finally discovered alive. that was dashed to some extent yesterday with the news that a diver, a former navy diver who has volunteered his services back here as the team, bosses like coming out of the cave. that underlined how difficult this
is going to be, with the risk of the rescued him. —— he lost his life coming out of the cave. that is part of the effort that is going on now, we know that british cave divers as well as other from around the world teaching the boys how to swim and how to get used to be scuba diving equipment so if that is the favoured way out, they are best bred as possible to use the equipment to get out of the free as possible. they are drilling around the hills here. it is really difficult to the rain, holes have been drilled over the last few days in the official in charge of the operation yesterday told us that they were within 200 metres of the cabin where the boys are. that is still 600 metres that they have got to dig down. if that is going to be the way they come out, that means more work. if they are going to scuba diver, they want to give the boys more time to learn to be co mforta ble boys more time to learn to be comfortable with it. they said if
the water level start rising again, or raining, they will start urgently tried to get them out as quick as possible. they think the weather is looking for right for the next three orfour looking for right for the next three or four days. the officials looking for right for the next three orfour days. the officials have described this as a good window of opportunity. we may see some progress over the next few days. everyone here is hoping so. dan johnson there. at least 38 people have been killed and nearly 50 others are missing after heavy rain caused landslides in japan. the torrential downpours have forced more than one and a half million people to be evacuated from their homes in western and central areas of the country. and now japan's meteorological agency is forecasting record amounts of rain over the next few days. joanna jolly reports. it's been decades since the central and western areas of japan have seen rainfall as intense as this. vast areas in the main island of honshu have been inundated with muddy water and rivers have burst their banks. many of those killed have fallen into and been swept away by the fast flowing floods. hundreds of homes have been
destroyed and factories have been forced to halt production. this is a mountainous area and the authorities have warned against the threat of mudslides, which have already claimed several lives. japan's infrastructure has also suffered as roads have crumbled and rail lines have been broken in half. 50,000 police officers, firefighters and members of the defence forces have been deployed to rescue those cut—off or flooded out of homes. officials have told the public to be vigilant against further danger from landslides, rising rivers and strong winds. translation: heavy rain will continue in the area for western to eastern japan. and it will be historic torrential rainfall, which could be the heaviest rain ever recorded. forecasters say it looks likely that the heavy rains will continue throughout the weekend. joanna jolly, bbc news. back now to this afternoon's big world cup match, as england face sweden in the quarterfinal. we are not long now from kick—off.
