months of preparation brought a procession from past to future. it was great, really interesting. really impressive. great to see so many. wonderful. i wish i was up there again, flying. just to pay our respects and say — you know, to say thank you for everything that they've done over the years. the raf plan for this centenary was to commemorate, celebrate, and inspire. at westminster abbey, the queen, whose father had flown with the fledgling raf in 1918, joined herfamily and the raf family to remember those who had served in the air and on the ground. i remember today my grandmother's brother, jock, killed in wellington bomber in 1943. my grandfather's brother, charles portal, who commanded the royal air force for much of that war, and my father, who flew low—level sorties in burma. i read his logbook again last week.
how right and proper that we should each remember all who served. but this was also a day to celebrate the present. as the crowds joined the men and women of a 21st—century raf, parading their new colours outside buckingham palace, the queen spoke of her own links with the service. that family tradition continues to this day. the duke of edinburgh, the prince of wales and the duke of cambridge have all earned their wings, and wear them with great pride. this journey has taken the raf from the first world war to space. its motto, "through adversity to the stars," lies at the heart of this spectacular birthday. robert hall, bbc news. now it is time for a look at the weather with helen willets. good evening. a little fresher for
many today, i'm sure that was a welcome relief from the heat and humidity that the heat and humidity will gradually rise back in the coming few days —— but. plenty of sunshine, as you saw in stuff suffolk, in devon we have the highest average, 26 today. yesterday, 31 in london. can see how the temperatures have fallen away. we've had some rain, a0 millimetres has fallen in the north of scotland. that band of rain stretches its influence down to the north wales coast, affecting the isle of man and moving to the east of northern ireland. with all of the cloud around, not cold here, not cold elsewhere, more bearable away from the south—west of wales where we have the humidity air. with us tomorrow, and it could spark some showers. —— humid air. in
western scotland we will see the rain continuing. it could stretch into northern ireland, as i mentioned, the first appreciable rain here for three weeks but the east of scotland, potentially the west of northern ireland and certainly most of england and wales, badiodd certainly most of england and wales, badi odd shower in the afternoon, dry and fine and temperatures a degree up from today —— bar the odd. the same process, a degree or so each day, so if you're heading to wimbledon for the day, looking pleasa nt wimbledon for the day, looking pleasant enough, 23 or 2a with some fine weather. thursday similar, but we lose the weather system in scotla nd we lose the weather system in scotland and northern ireland, still some cloud around. the remnants of that weather front could be enough for some sharp showers, we think wales, western england but again, wouldn't rule them out elsewhere, the heat is building and starting to recover temperatures, liking to get into the low to mid 20s for many but maybe the high 20s in the south and east. similar values on friday, if not higher before the heat breaks
and we see perhaps more showers by that stage and again, this time of year, there's so much energy in the atmosphere there could be heavy and thundery. again, pretty high temperatures by friday, 28 or 29. recovering temperature wise in scotla nd recovering temperature wise in scotland and northern ireland. into the weekend, we keep that heat building, especially for england and wales, in the north—west, we could see some more cloud and rain. hello, this is bbc news with shaun ley. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow mornings papers in a moment, first the headlines: rescuers in thailand have now freed all 12 boys and their football coach, trapped in a flooded cave for 17 days. charlie rowley, one of two people exposed to novichok in amesbury last weekend, regains consciousness in hospital. it comes as health officials warn the public not to pick up suspcious items. here, the prime minsiter urges party unity following yesterday's high—profile resignations from cabinet. tonight two vice chairs of the conservative party have also stepped down over brexit. 100 aircraft for 100 years, the royal air force celebrates its centenary in style with a huge
flypast over central london. tributes have been paid to the former foreign secretary, lord carrington, who has died aged 99. and jubilation in paris as france beat beligium to gain a spot in the world cup final. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are the former trade minister, lord digbyjones and the broadcaster, henry bonsu. tomorrow's front pages are already in. the financial times leads with facebook‘s fine by the information commissioner's office after the watchdog accused
the social network of breaking the law over how it safeguarded user information in the cambridge analytica data leak. that's also the front page story in the guardian, which also shows the faces of the 12 young footballers successfully rescued from a cave in thailand. the telegraph focuses on us president donald trump's comments that theresa may's government is in turmoil after cabinet ministers and party figures resign. meanwhile, the i divides its front page between those continuing resignations within theresa may's party and also looks ahead to england's world cup match against croatia tomorrow. the times also leads on the state of mrs may's leadership, saying that tory mp andrew bridgen will submit a letter of no confidence in the prime minister to the 1922 committee of conservative banckbenchers. the daily express describes the prime minister's plans to prepare for a no deal brexit scenario as a clear warning that her patience with brussels is running out.
and the mirror features a plea from former england player paul gascgoine to the world cup team, as he tells them to bring the trophy home. digby, henry, let's begin with the telegraph. digby, trump says the country is in turmoil. i was brought up country is in turmoil. i was brought up to treat others like you wish to be treated. i'm not too sure that donald trump would like the british prime minister, or the chancellor from germany or president of france, to start commenting on the domestic issues of his country. i think it's arrogance of the greatest and worst kind. it defines the man really. i find it distressing. it's a wake—up call to britain that we've always kidded ourselves of the special
relationship with america, i don't think there is one, there's an intelligence issue, the sharing benefits the british people a great deal but we kidded ourselves that america is anything more than a friend. he's showing that. on the other hand, if i may say, when you have the mayor of london, khan, it is ok to put a big balloon of donald trump wearing a nappy. if the americans did that over the white house with the queen we would think it is disgusting. i want to see more from world leaders at the moment.“ the americans did that when the queen was there, we would say to america, a country who values life, freedom, but it values the first amendment. but it is rude. you have describe yourself as a libertarian.
you believe in freedom of speech, you don't believe in the nanny state. with trump, i rememberwhen trump was running for office, in 2016 people began to take him seriously, a number of psychologists, maybe they shouldn't do it, diagnosed him at arm's—length but they said there was something cytopathic about him, he doesn't recognise the consequences of his actions. he doesn't do empathy. we can see this about how he approaches the organs of his own country's state, how he do denounces others in capitol hill, and what he says about other world leaders, he doesn't bother and feel the consequences. saying to angela merkel, don't say i never give you anything. and also
macron. he is machiavellian, the end will always justify the means. james mattis, his defence secretary, wrote this letter to gavin williamson, the defence secretary, which was leaked, which said you need to start spending more money otherwise the special election ship might go. and oui’ special election ship might go. and our oldest ally, france, does spend lots of money. britain spends more than france in percentage terms and percentage of gdp —— special relationship. the one that trump has ago relationship. the one that trump has a go at, and i'm with him on this, is germany. it's not even spending 196 is germany. it's not even spending 1% of its gdp, it's the richest country in germany. it is 1.296 at the moment. submarines don't work, ta nks the moment. submarines don't work, tanks don't work, the aircraft don't get off the runway and it's a disgrace. and germany is the boss of europe so why would we expect
anything else? there's a reason, the historical reason. why germany doesn't... historical reason. why germany doesn't. .. japan does. their culture, their constitution is pacifist because of what happened in the second world war. japan has the same issue. things may change. you tell that to greece. i'm talking about how things may involve. there isa about how things may involve. there is a deep—seated reason, if you spend time in germany, talk to germans, especially of a certain e, germans, especially of a certain age, i spent time in germany, i speak german... what is the point you are trying to make? get on with it? i'm trying to educate you, please. patronising as well. you tried to patronise me. the whole point, digby, there are reasons why
germans don't trust themselves with a large army and with spending money oi'i a large army and with spending money on weapons of a large army and with spending money on weapons of war. a large army and with spending money on weapons of war. that will change as they forget what happened between 1939 and 1945 and previously. then we will complain about that. you are really wrong. on the front of the times, tories draw battle over may's brexit plan. do you think the chequers compromise, if i can call it that, is going to hold? that is a question where i think the answer is probably yes. that doesn't mean it's going to be good for the country. i'm an optimistic guy and my glass is always half full and at the moment i feel very let down and despondent, because the establishment, who had this click of a lifetime two years ago, the elite of this country, the big business, the civil service especially, the politicians, some of the media, they have over the last year sabotaged
any possibility of there being a deal and what should happen is the nation should have had its huge enema of... huge adjustment and anger and change. then serve notice. then as a nation gone to europe and said... a united front. and say we're not budging. barnier says i don't have to do anything and the remain camp will destroy your country. if he couldn't have said that, because we were unified before, and over two years the ability to go as a nation, this great trading nation, great open nation to do it has been sabotaged by the establishment elite to the point at which we now have a situation where, to answer the specific, where the deal... i can't think of a remainer who would agree with this deal, let alone a brexiteer, and on that basis this is awfulfor brexiteer, and on that basis this is awful for our country. we seem to have lost our bottle. maybe we have
woken up and smell the coffee. please, we are all wonderful people, we are going to go back to 1970 like an organisation. it is beyond me why we can't come together as a nation. borisjohnson said it was self—doubt. borisjohnson said it was self-doubt. boris, whose behaviour has been despicable, and if i was the prime minister i would have sacked him ages ago, but he's got a point when he said this deal was going to make us a colony of europe andi going to make us a colony of europe and i think he is right. going to make us a colony of europe and i think he is rightlj going to make us a colony of europe and i think he is right. i don't think he is right. why not? nothing is agreed until everything is agreed, if we walk out without a deal we keep the £39 billion and some brexiteers want that. would you sign up to that? i wouldn't. what i'm saying is there are people who feel we should put two fingers up to the european union and walk away without a deal whatever the cost to
business and relationships we've gone and got from the last a5 years, gone and got from the last as years, taking us from the sick man of europe to a strength in the european union. with the european union? our trade of europe, 3a% with the european union. membership took us from being the sick man of europe? it was the contributing factor.m was a key driver. when borisjohnson talked about us being racked with self—doubt, he should know, remember, when it came to making the decision about whether he should go brexit or remain, he wrote two columns and decided at the last minute. he was tortured by self—doubt and i suspect that has continued over the last two years. if we hadn't triggered article 50 when we did and we had waited longer to coalesce on when we did and we had waited longer to coalesce on our when we did and we had waited longer to coalesce on our position, what would that position has been? it could have been something like this. you're a kind man and you're looking at borisjohnson you're a kind man and you're looking at boris johnson being you're a kind man and you're looking at borisjohnson being racked by self—doubt, but he was tortured by
the indecision of not knowing what route would get him to prime minister. it was pure naked ambition and he had to come down on one side. self—doubt and it was a good job there was not a lot of self—doubt on display in northern thailand over the last few days. in light of the fact we are arguing, and the nation is arguing, and there is lots of nasty mess in america and everywhere else, isn't it lovely to have a great story. and at breakfast this morning the mrs said to me that isn't it fabulous that in a world like this we have this wonderful story. i think it is very clever. to get these boys out, and we saw that diagram in all of the papers, and many of them couldn't swim, and they got them through that little bit where they had to be on their own, and i think it isa had to be on their own, and i think it is a fabulous story about mankind's ingenuity to get these kids out, and well done to them.
what i liked was it was an international effort. some brits, people from scandinavian countries, everybody working together to try and get these young people out. let's remember how much concerned there was in the beginning, when we first heard this story, that they may have to stay there for four months if the monsoon rains came and flooded the cave even further, and there would be no further high ground to them in that complex. it is brilliant people have connected with that story, perhaps even more than the chill and miners, because these are youngsters, fans of the global game, and young people —— chilean miners. i think it will be mark wahlberg, he did deepwater horizon, he did boston. they know he can swim. what about the case of the 25—year—old football coach who
decided it would be a great idea to go in and check out the caves. i think he has been forgiven by the pa rents, think he has been forgiven by the parents, hasn't he? i hope that is the case, because whatever one thinks of the initial decision, whether it was wise or not, he had to stay with those boys, leave the experience, and probably helped keep them together. that's right, and one of the details is something like three or four divers have stayed with them throughout, since they we re with them throughout, since they were discovered alive, and now it is the 17th day, so they haven't been alone and they have been getting medical treatment. and we should remember one diver did die. he died of oxyg e n remember one diver did die. he died of oxygen when he was down there. and so we are joyous tonight, but let's remember his family. it has been a fantastic story, and the story which clearly did touch people's hearts. when you show that on the promo beforehand, down the bottom they have a facebook story to
which you referred, and i have to mention this. facebook are found guilty of being at least negligent and possibly more with this data. they are fined £500,000, and the maximum possible under the 1988 act. you can imagine mark zuckerberg saying let's get the petty cash tin out, boys, we have a parking fine to pgy- out, boys, we have a parking fine to pay. you have billions of dollars, and 500 grand, you naughty person. and a blunt warning from the chairman of marks & spencer, a man associated with asda, a tory mp, now back fully in business, he has been working at itva a long time. he has a pretty dire warning about m&s's prospects. when people come to this country from overseas they often
wa nt to country from overseas they often want to shop at marks & spencer, but he was pretty shocked with what he has found, and the border under no illusion that this business has a burning platform. so unless they change in decades to come, that would be the end of m&s. we have seen would be the end of m&s. we have seen many would be the end of m&s. we have seen many high—street institution is disappearing and programmes about the death of the high street and how we can keep it, but when you look at the profit situation at m&s over the last couple of years, profits have halved from 1 billion to about 580 million. nobody has been able to arrest the decline. even though it is still loved and people would be desperately sad if it went. he said, andi desperately sad if it went. he said, and i quote, m&s doesn't have a god—given right exist. it says something, and it speaks more about the model than it does about the brand. the brand still stands for something. it is quality, isn't it?
totally, and value for money. but the problem is the model. you mean the problem is the model. you mean the high—street store model?|j the problem is the model. you mean the high-street store model? i am a technological dinosaur and i have problems understanding supermarkets alone. but we have to understand that the world has changed, and marks & spencer has to fundamentally change. i don't mean change its product. but the route to market, and what he is really saying is we haven't got many months left. one institution which has survived all the vicissitudes of the last century. i was showing some people around the lords, and i try to do this once or twice a month, people from various parts of britain and overseas, show them the lords in the commons, have lunch with them, and...|
commons, have lunch with them, and... ijust think it is right. it is good pr for britain. it is what people like me should do. and today we had some people from poole, and they had come up. i said we are going out, and we are going to stand there and watch this. well, they thought it was wonderful. but they we re thought it was wonderful. but they were looking up like this. i was crying my eyes out. i was in the royal navy for three years in my late teens and early 20s. were you an aircadet? late teens and early 20s. were you an air cadet? i was a midshipman and lieutenant in the royal navy. i noticed today they didn't have a swordfish, because that was the fleet i was in. when you think of the enormous sacrifice these people have paid over the last 100 years, an enormous sacrifice of bomber command and the spitfires and hurricanes. when you saw what isis
did to thatjordanian pilot, these raf pilots, wejust did to thatjordanian pilot, these raf pilots, we just say go and do it and we walk away and get on with our lives. it is still fraught with risk. shore, and god bless them. and they don't choose their missions, they don't choose their missions, they just serve. if anyone gets they don't choose their missions, theyjust serve. if anyone gets it wrong, it is the political masters. war is waged by old man and fought by young man, and i think that is right. and some of the young men have now become old man, who were there today. interestingly, i thought... the duke of edinburgh wasn't on the balcony, nor should he be, he has retired from public life, but i thought the queen looked fabulous. 92 years old, and she looked fabulous. she is waiting for football to come home. and she was looking up in the sky when it was happening for real. and looking up
in the sky from windsor and london are different times during the war. we are sadly running out of time. we a lwa ys we are sadly running out of time. we always talk ourselves through so quickly. the i. i am looking forward to it, a diverse, multi— ethnic britain, and captain kane, cool, calm and collected, and gareth southgate, the perfect managerfor these players, and hopefully... this is great, i have a new tv coming tomorrow as well. high—definition. and southgate is a different sort of manager. he reminds me in rugby terms of clive woodward, far more cerebral, and treating these young men with a degree of expectation and maturity. he set the tone, hasn't he? i suppose for him there are some
demons to be banished. he said he hasn't been able to listen to football coverage for 20 years. we have a friend whose family were next—door neighbours to the southgate family, and when he went for his first trial as a young schoolboy footballer he heard the coach say to the manager this bloke is far too bright to be a footballer. i just is far too bright to be a footballer. ijust want raheem sterling to get on the squad. you wa nt to sterling to get on the squad. you want to cause trouble for the croatians. please let him. the three of us are saying it is coming home. we are committing ourselves. digby, henry, good to see you. thank you for your company. that's it for the papers tonight. 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 any
evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. 0ur our guests will be back with us very soon. our guests will be back with us very soon. i am leaving you for this evening. coming up at midnight, it is newsday. hello there. well, temperatures only reach 26 celsius today in devon, that was the hottest spot in the uk, and it was the first time in more than five days that we haven't had somewhere reach the 30 degrees mark somewhere reach the 30 degrees mark somewhere in the uk. so extraordinary has been a hot spell of weather. now, we had a fine end to the day in lincolnshire with a beautiful sunset sent here by our weather watchers. as far as the weather goes over the course of the rest of the night, we will have a weather front bringing some rain the western areas of scotland, and that
will tend to get heavier at times, especially across south—western scotla nd especially across south—western scotland by the end of the night. also some of that rain threatening eastern areas of northern ireland. 0therwise eastern areas of northern ireland. otherwise it is a dry night and it feels fresh outside so it should be a recently pleasant night for getting a decent night's sleep. looking at the weather picture into tomorrow morning, we will get that rain turning heavierfor tomorrow morning, we will get that rain turning heavier for a tomorrow morning, we will get that rain turning heavierfor a time across south—west scotland, but then the rain will tend to fizzle as the moisture along the front gets spread out. that will be the focus of one or two showers across wales in south—west england, but apart from that there will be a lot of dry weather. similar weather across england and wales for the most part. temperatures of 25 celsius. so it is not cold, it is just not as hot as it has been over those recent days. and if you are planning to watch the big match as we head into the evening time, the weather will not change a great deal. a lot of dry weather for those outdoor locations, and temperatures just slowly drifting their way down but still co mforta ble drifting their way down but still comfortable weather out and about. a decent night's sleep through
wednesday night, and that takes us into thursday. weather fronts wednesday night, and that takes us into thursday. weatherfronts in wednesday night, and that takes us into thursday. weather fronts in the western parts of the country, so a few isolated showers, but the big picture is one of a ridge of high pressure a cross picture is one of a ridge of high pressure across the uk, and that will continue to bring a lot of dry and settled weather. the first a cloud will continue to come and go once again, with decent spells of sunshine. if anything more sunshine to go round and those temperatures should creep up once again. should get up to 27 celsius also towards london and england, but also temperatures the inning to nudge up a little bit in scotland and northern ireland. still a few showers around, some of those could be quite slow—moving and the risk of a few showers for friday across south—east england, but many of staying dry and avoiding downpours. as we head into the weekend, it is set to get warmer with increasing amounts of sunshine. so temperatures in london pushing back into the upper 20s. but i think across the board we will see temperatures pushing well up into the 20s, so some pushing well up into the 20s, so some pleasant weather to look forward to this weekend. that is
your latest forecast. ben bradley i'm sophie long, live outside the hospital in northern thailand where all 12 rescued boys and their football coach are now being treated. officials say the boys are healthy, fever—free and seem to be in high spirits. translation: no one thought we could make it up when we did, it was a first for the world.
