prince louis, the youngest son of the duke and duchess of cambridge, was christened this afternoon at st james‘s palace. the queen and the duke of edinburgh were not at the baptism, but six godparents did attend the private ceremony. now it's time for a look at the weather with helen willetts. another sweltering day, temperatures in the high 20s, 29 the highest i have seen, not as high as yesterday, the reason form or cloud in the sky floating around, you see in worcestershire earlier this afternoon, but a definite drop in temperature for the north of england, here in whitby, and this is why, this cloud. a note noticeable dip —— noticeable dip. the odd spot of drizzle from this weather front in the eastern this morning, trundling further west, introducing this fresh breeze, fresh northerly breeze across many used in areas ——

in the east this morning. high humidity in the south. behind this weather front, lower humidity air. higher humidity were coming into scotla nd higher humidity were coming into scotland and more cloud through the day, that will move its wake on tuesday into northern ireland —— air. camps on a par with today. further south, the fresher air migrates further south —— temperatures on. a few sharp showers in wales and the south—west, still with temperatures in the mid—20s, as we see in the midlands, but cooler for many eastern and southern areas, especially with the breeze. welcome relief if you find the heat and high humidity to stifling. will it last? doesn't look like it. —— too stifling. what about wimbledon? a more comfortable date. bear in mind, even though we won't have the high
11:33 pm
20s, as we have had, the sun will be strong when the temperatures are around 19 or20. strong when the temperatures are around 19 or 20. on sunday, a weak weather front could give us rain around 19 or 20. on sunday, a weak weatherfront could give us rain in northern ireland but high pressure builds through it on the day, so not amounting to much rain, but it will affect the west of scotland. quite cloudy. west scotland, england and wales, the cloud melting away, temperatures melting away. the forecast keeps the warmth building, as you can see, through thursday. further north, through scotland and northern ireland, into the end of the week. . —— bye—bye. hello. this is bbc news. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow mornings papers in a moment, first the headlines: theresa may's cabinet is in disarray as borisjohnson becomes the second senior minister to resign in the space of under 2a hours. in his resignation letter, he says, "the brexit dream is dying,
11:34 pm
suffocated by needless self—doubt," and said the uk is heading for a deal that will give it the status of an eu colony. and in a move to shore up her cabinet, theresa may appointsjeremy hunt as the new foreign secretary, with matt hancock taking over as health secretary. but the prime minister tells mps in the commons she is prepared to fight to keep herjob, and still believes in the government's vision for brexit. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are dia, who's the brexit editor at the daily telegraph, and dawn foster, who's a columnist for the guardian. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the financial times has more on the politcal turmoil caused by the resignations of borisjohnson and david davis. the telegraph has the same story. it says theresa may's leadership is in crisis after the two
11:35 pm
high—profile cabinet minsiters quit. borisjohnson is on the front page of the metro as well, along with claims by the foreign secretary that the brexit dream is dying. the guardian says hardline brexiters have been warned to back the prime minister or risk handing power over to jeremy corbyn. the mirror reports borisjohnson is tipped to launch a leadership bid after deciding to turn his back theresa may's cabinet. the times has more on the cabinet crisis amid concerns that more mps could walk away over brexit. the i features a photograph of borisjohnson as speculation grows over his future. and the sun brings the focus back to the world cup as the poltical drama unfolds ahead of england's next game. croatia of england's next game. seems a positive distractii croatia seems a positive distraction i should imagine at the moment for the prime minister, she will be relieved to see the tv on wednesday night. let's begin with with a tribute to another television
11:36 pm
programme on the front of the telegraph. their own version of 24. it felt like that, most people in the country, most political journalists, were going to bed last night when our phones went off back, david davis resigned. we had dominic wrapped in at10:30pm. boris david davis resigned. we had dominic wrapped in at 10:30pm. boris bided this time... where is boris? 24 hours of literal mayhem. —— dominic rabb. didn't give the appearance of a cabinet that cared about what they we re a cabinet that cared about what they were resigning over. colleagues in europe and america said it looked like a meltdown and the prime minister said they weren't, but if you have to say it! it's like when we keep hearing, we've been very clear, you can guarantee that there's been a lack of clarity. at least we now know what brexit means, not just brexit means least we now know what brexit means, notjust brexit means brexit, but we have specifics now. dia, what do you
11:37 pm
make of this? moving on to the mirror, it thinks boris‘s resignation is shameless. mirror, it thinks boris‘s resignation is shamelesslj mirror, it thinks boris's resignation is shameless. i think there would have been fewer... i think boris has allowed this to be... to appear shameless, even if he thinks it isn't and if this allies think it isn't, even if they think it is unfair. zac goldsmith has been tweeting, saying boris can do never the right thing on to this critics, they will always say he's done the wrong thing. there will be several other occasions where if he had resigned, this resignation would have meant a lot more. for the brexit cause but also for this own credibility. as dawn just said, we saw david davis going last night and then this morning, you just reminded me, sean, fora then this morning, you just reminded me, sean, for a while there was a hash tag saying, where is boris? —— dawn. the chief whip didn't know.
11:38 pm
puel squirrel people didn't know where he was and he was meant to be representing us at this european summit about future security and it didn't look good ——... he wrote a very lyrical article. and a letter of resignation. i think he's got this timing wrong but i'm just a humble commentator. aren't we all? scheming is how he has been described by the mirror, is that fair? if he was scheming he would have resigned before david davis beat him to it. i agree with dominic rabb, there were occasions when he could have resigned and he kept some dignity. if he came to the commons and voted against heathrow people would have respected him for that, he would have had to stand down but would have people respected him for
11:39 pm
sticking to this word. then david davis resigned last night, boris johnson could have resigned quite quickly, but then he missed the west balkans summit, a german politician asked where he was, he was meant to be at the meeting as the host and then he was meant to be at a cobra meeting. has number one concern is himself. unfortunate given the foreign office, as we heard from james landale earlier, has had the policy about which boris johnson. .. the fact that boris johnson is policy about which boris johnson. .. the fact that borisjohnson is going to lead britain in the world after brexit, then when the west balkans is looking for leadership there is an empty chair. this is what baffles me, if he is about boris then surely he would give himself the most positive image and the greatest possible opportunity to present this
11:40 pm
case and for this followers to rally behind him. for a case and for this followers to rally behind him. fora long case and for this followers to rally behind him. for a long time, case and for this followers to rally behind him. fora long time, a case and for this followers to rally behind him. for a long time, a lot of brexit backbenchers have been looking at him, saying can you please stand up against what they felt was a derailment of brexit under theresa may. i suppose for them, the front page of the telegraph is really... your paper is how they perceive boris, the man of principle, the statesman, the man who not only has the intellectual heft, the historical knowledge and all the rest of it, but has the ability to connect with ordinary voters that many politicians would kill to have, and many are lacking. you're probably right. whatever this criticisms are, he is a tory who managed to wind london twice for the tories, that's quite an achievement. —— to win. people know this. in the last segment i said i was speaking toa last segment i said i was speaking to a backbencher from a northern constituency, they were saying, i've
11:41 pm
seen constituency, they were saying, i've seen boris in london, i've seen him in my rural northern constituency, he's got the same poll, people are interested in what he has to say and that's why people have lots of expectation of him —— poll. andrea jenkyns, a probe brexit backbencher, is writing saying she would be happy to put in one of the letters to put in the leadership challenge —— pro—brexit. i don't know about andrea personally but people will have someone like boris in mind when they think about this. charles moore's commentary piece at the bottom of the front pages interesting, you couldn't put it more brutally, is anyone brave enough to sign theresa may's death warrant? the brexiteers fear they have betrayed them —— feel they have. it's the no—win situation. yet she is still there. charles moore gets it right, nobody is brave enough to do it. at the moment
11:42 pm
theresa may is essentially a caretaker prime minister. no one wants to come in until they think they have a good stab at being in power for a long time and until the brexit negotiations are finished. most expect them not to come off as well as they want. she looks exhausted, she looks like she has no control, if they can keep her in post and work on what they want behind—the—scenes, be it boris, maybe any of the 2015 intake, that's what they will do. and at the moment it goes wrong they blame her and kick her out. they could easily have collected the 48 letters they need for the 1922 committee to trigger a motion of no—confidence. for the 1922 committee to trigger a motion of no-confidence. they mustn't trigger it because then it becomes automatic. you were saying earlier, sorry, alex forsyth was saying, you only get one chance in 12 months. if you botch it, you can't come back again. if she wins
11:43 pm
the vote of confidence, for 12 months they can't it again. u2 will be... when you were down at westminster, you will be checking around to see if there's a little bag of letters —— u2 will be. around to see if there's a little bag of letters -- u2 will be. we have talked about this before in various programmes, one thing that unites tory brexiteers and remainers is the fear of a corbyn government. —— you two. the brexiteers in the commons, i say this as a brexit supporter myself, are well aware they don't have a majority in the house of commons, even though many of their colleagues will have run on a very pro—brexit, very clear pro—brexit manifesto, but they have changed their minds. there's something to be said for the front page of your paper, dawn, the guardian, a smiling theresa may. it's not a warm smile, a slightly,
11:44 pm
ha—ha, got you now kind of smile. she looked rattled when she gave her speech in the commons today. understandably, she was getting it from her own side, particularly. one of the questions was who was the new foreign secretary, she said i don't know, i've been in the commons. we are hearing over and over much louder voices, both on the remain side and for the pro—brexit side from her back benches, but at the same time, she needs to try to get labour on—site. keir starmer has said... the shadow brexit secratary. .. he has said... the shadow brexit secratary... he has come out said... the shadow brexit secratary. .. he has come out and said the chequers agreement doesn't match labour's six tests it needs to get the backing —— labour onside. match labour's six tests it needs to get the backing —— labour onsidelj don't think we can remember what those six tests are! exactly. i think made is hoping she can get some of the labour rebels onside ——
11:45 pm
may. lots of people will say the chequers agreement doesn't look great to them either and if they don't back it they can bring down theresa may and brexit. that's intriguing, you have the paradox of the pro—brexit is you want to stop brexit —— pro brexiteers. then you have jeremy corbyn as brexit —— pro brexiteers. then you havejeremy corbyn as prime minister, leading a slightly more pro—remain party, but he himself who has traditionally been pretty and ge. he has been quite... his spokespeople, when you speak to them, there are certain elements of them, there are certain elements of the four freedoms that we would very much like to change, aspects of the single market they would like to change. and freedom of movement they are not keen on. this was one of the m essa g es are not keen on. this was one of the messages they got back, particularly the constituencies in the midlands and the north. i wonder if they would be willing to compromise on that but the whole state aid
11:46 pm
restrictions, they would like to get rid of that. this is why this is quite controversial maybe. i think this is why there is a good chance of theresa may getting this through to the eu leaders as well because they will also know that if they don't support theresa may in this, they also have a risk of having to deal with maybe a more pro— brexit tory prime minister or perhaps a labour prime minister. if it's jeremy corbyn, he will have its own demands. i wonder if corbyn will be any more at home in front —— brussels than a hard line brexiteer. he thinks of it as a rich man's club which is facilitated the free market and has not been as strong on things like workers' rights and environmental protections. he was a traditional critic. i was interested by something that crispin blunt, the former chairman of the foreign affairs select committee said, this
11:47 pm
farand no affairs select committee said, this far and no further. affairs select committee said, this farand no further. in affairs select committee said, this far and no further. in other words, he could swallow that but not any further compromises at the chequers summit. you could go into negotiation with something in your back pocket. i think because we've had 24 hours of mayhem, we've been focusing on what theresa may can get from the backbenches. and what's been missing. we haven't really thought about what they will swallow. she could manage to get it through parliament. even the crash out with no deal. the sun offers us a version of events to explain why borisjohnson a version of events to explain why boris johnson resigned. it a version of events to explain why borisjohnson resigned. it is only so he canjoin the borisjohnson resigned. it is only so he can join the starting 11 borisjohnson resigned. it is only so he canjoin the starting 11 in russia on wednesday night. a photomontage to go with it. don't
11:48 pm
you know there is a bloody game on is the headline. it is a direct quote. the sun backed footy fans backing politicians to get a grip as borisjohnson resigned just backing politicians to get a grip as boris johnson resigned just 15 hours after david davis quit. living in the westminster buzz —— bubble, we didn't realise they were people who are trying to focus on football and getting distracted by this. no politician is going to resign on wednesday. harry kane khan sleep presumably. i don't think there are too many people too worried by it. by too many people too worried by it. by wednesday, everyone will quiet down and try to get a good night ‘s sleep. let's hope that we get into
11:49 pm
the later stages. if we do reach the final because of novichok, there will be nobody there. if england turn out in the world cup final, there will be nobody there to applaud if they lift the trophy. interesting thought. let's move on, let's stay with the football. we all ta ke let's stay with the football. we all take off perhaps to your paper. it's just so sweet and it really does ca ptu re just so sweet and it really does capture the nature and's mood quite well. with team —— we've seen a greater unity behind this football team. young men who are trying their best to represent their country. there is something to be said about that and they are doing so well. it seems like it's the only happy thing asa seems like it's the only happy thing as a nation which we are grateful for. this is adorable. obviously,
11:50 pm
they are great pictures, they look like my son, at cetera. they are representing their country and a few short years later, because some of these flats are very young, but there's also the sense that these are nice to become nice guides —— nice guys. we are so used to negative stories about footballers. i don't want to tempt fate but their performance on and off the field has been exemplary over the last few weeks. we hear a lot about how much they are paid and what they get up to in nightclubs. instead, what we are seeing is a good news story for once. these boys have transparent highlife. they have gone through ita come from very diverse backgrounds, some of them from very poor backgrounds, working incredibly hard to get to the top of their field and
11:51 pm
now they are doing brilliantly. they must be over the moon at how far they have come. it will be an extraordinary reception. also something, interesting that somebody was talking about this, the attitude of gareth southgate, saying that he has had this conscious desire, which is very interesting because he's quite an intellectual, he kicks beyond football. he strategise is and has a very profound sense of there being a kind of new english identity that he thinks the team should exemplify. in some ways, this frontpage sets it up. the ethnicity of the team. we were talking about the english dream for and dawn actually brought up this fantastic article. i think everybody was moved to read it and was about this little boy who helping his mother cleaned
11:52 pm
toilets as a child and a few years later, he was representing england and how much it meant to him. it's a beautiful story. this idea that we are all uniting behind this team and rallying them on. it's fantastic, particularly somebody like me who doesn't understand football but i understand the spirit and i want to bea understand the spirit and i want to be a part of it. it's an encouraging thing, everyone wants to be a part of it. if we go back to the telegraph, this is a magic way, an extraordinary ability to merge and this is the matt cartoon.|j
11:53 pm
extraordinary ability to merge and this is the matt cartoon. i think if he did some pearling right now, but the dot is not going to drop the ball in brexit negotiations. it's a great cartoon but it has been annexed ordinary day. i noticed many of you have your various digital devices. you can't tear yourself away from them. conor burns, 930. he was parliamentary aide to boris johnson. these are really quite, no disrespect, quite low—level political resignations. thus far, no ministers have gone. some sources i've heard, especially in the brexit camp, have said they will keep designing until theresa may goes or throws away the chequers deal. she
11:54 pm
might be in need. a lot of people are very unhappy with the chequers deal. they think they can hold her hostage. you are at the heart of all this, brexit central. no, i'm not. i think things have settled down for a while, for some time now. ithink that the ones that were going to go have gone. that is why the brexiteer camp is worried, their voices have weakened. many are seeing this as a remaining coup, a government run by romaine and very much pursuing theresa may's brexit. very much pursuing a romaine agenda and in parliament, she did look a lot more confident than she has ever done today and i was slightly surprised by that, she was being cheered on by
11:55 pm
her colleagues like anna subry and when peter bone, a brexiteer, got up to talk, he was heckled by his own side. i think the remain camp have this one, actually. that's it for the papers tonight and don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website. it's all there for you — 7 days a week at and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you to my guests dia chakravarty from the daily telegraph and dawn foster from the guardian and goodbye. newsday is next. a remarkable run of hot weather. some were in the uk over the last five days, temperatures above the 30- five days, temperatures above the 30— degree mark and yesterday, monday, was the turn of kew in west
11:56 pm
london, the top temperature. we did have a lot of dry weather through the day, some earlier sunshine but in north—east england, and different story. gary spotted these grey skies, bringing a few spots of rain. the skies brightening up with some late day sunshine. that cold front is going to be important the changing how the weather feels. a lot of cloud over northern and eastern parts of the uk. as the cold front works down, we have seen the dew point, the amount of humidity in the atmosphere significantly drop away and that makes it feel a lot fresher and will help the temperatures fall away through the night so by the end of the night, much more comfortable conditions. 10- 16 much more comfortable conditions. 10— i6 celsius slows the start of
11:57 pm
tuesday, high widowers. fresh air and across the south. the warm front bringing slightly thicker cloud, thick enough to bring us a few spots of rain but nothing really for the garden is to celebrate. for most of us, another dry day. some spells of sunshine coming through. temperature—wise, it's not going to be as hot as it has been over recent days, we are unlikely to hit 30 degrees. 24 celsius in london, still warm in the sunshine but not as hot as it has been. here, potentially we could see temperatures in the mid—to high 20s. there is a least the prospect of gardeners getting a bit of rain. another dry picture with sunny spells coming and going.
11:58 pm
temperatures in the low to mid—20s, roughly where they should be at this time of year. what about later on this week and into the weekend? the dry theme does continue. it looks like it's going to be dry for most of us. there will be quite a bit of sunshine developing later this weekend into the weekend. temperatures building, eyes into the upper 20s in london this weekend. i'm sophie long, live outside the caves in northern thailand where rescuers are getting ready for what they hope will be the final day of their mission to free twelve boys and their football coach. so far, eight of the children have been brought to safety — all are said to be in good health. the rescue teams will go in again in the next few hours. 0ne diver tells us about the difficulties inside. when i saw the diver and the kid on
11:59 pm
the horizon, we cannot see that far, probably about 50 metres, i still did not know if there was a casual deal not. —— casualties or not. i'm kasia madera in london. also in the programme. two big brexiteers resign — but prime minister theresa may
