11:33 pm
on iran as a result of the us withdrawal from a 2015 nuclear deal. at least 98 people have been killed and thousands of residents and tourists evacuated after the second earthquake on the indonesian island of lombok in a week. a court has heard that the england cricketer ben stokes lost control during a fight outside a nightclub in bristol last year. he and two other men deny a charge of affray. a man's appeared before magistrates charged with the murder of the midwife samantha eastwood. her body was found in a rural area of staffordshire on saturday. the labour party has dropped its investigation into one of its mps, dame margaret hodge, for allegedly shouting atjeremy corbyn over his handling of anti—semitism allegations. hello and welcome to our look ahead
11:34 pm
to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are the former conservative minister, nicola blackwood, and sebastian payne, political leader writer at the financial times. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the guardian reports that the police are ready to submit an extradition order to moscow for two russians suspected of carrying out the salisbury nerve agent poisoning. the times has the same story, saying the suspects were identified using cctv cross—referenced with records of people entering the country. the financial times leads with the trump administration re—imposing sanctions on iran after pulling out of the obama era nuclear deal. the telegraph reports the government is planning tougher sentences for people who view child pornography.
11:35 pm
the mirror reports on the trial of england cricketer ben stokes, who is charged with affray along with two other men, he denies the charges. the metro carries the same story, as well as a warning that global warming may be approching a tipping point where it speeds up. the i goes with the earthquake in indonesia, reporting that some british tourists are stranded. and the express claims that labour mps are working on a plot to oust their leader jeremy corbyn. let's take a look at some of those stories in more detail. sebastien, start off, the guardian, been overjob sebastien, start off, the guardian, been over job related sebastien, start off, the guardian, been overjob related story which they delay bling exclusive —— sebastiano, stardust off. this is in a couple of the papers —— which they are labelling —— sebastien, start us
11:36 pm
off. they want to extradite two individuals for the attack. hundreds of police officers have been working oi'i of police officers have been working on this from across the intelligence agencies and the conventional forces. it's hard to know where this is going to go because if we recall what happened with the litvinenko attack a decade ago, the uk put in a similar extradition request and the russian embassy said they weren't interested, it's part of their constitution not to extradite their citizens to another country and it doesn't recognise the international criminal court, and it will do the same now. the guardian will say this will lead to another round of tit for tat diplomatic expulsions, and relations between russia and the we st relations between russia and the west will continue to degenerate. the real question is what is the uk plan and what is it trying to achieve? people want recourse for this horrific attack on citizens on
11:37 pm
british soil, relations are so bad between russians and the west, it seems hard to see how there would be a constructive dialogue and the new cold war is only getting colder. nicola, is there a clear plan? it's evident there is division in whitehall at the man meant between those who want to ratchet up the response to russia, who believe it's right there should be consequences for this kind of act on british soil and those who think it is a futile gesture —— at the moment between. their response so far to the knowledge rock scandal has been a combination of denial, obst location, misdirection and a furious campaign of counter accusation —— novichok scandal. —— obfuscation. their knees to be a combined
11:38 pm
diplomatic effort between nations to make putin feel like he needs to respond in some way —— needs to be. there needs to be a combined diplomatic response and give and take. we saw that with ukraine, when you impose sanctions on russia, that hit them where it hurt with the economy and there have been more sanctions imposed on russia from that. if the uk wants to have an effect with this, it's going to have to work with international partners to work with international partners to make sure it can get international support so it's not just working on its own against this. as you said, there's the debate in whitehall about whether we do something and what ultimately the point of this is. the cps is preparing the case and interestingly they seem to have leads on this, we haven't heard anything about what led to the attack and who was responsible, similar to litvinenko, to individuals who came to this
11:39 pm
country possibly with false identities, carry out the attack and then disappeared and we haven't heard anything from them —— two individuals. this article relates to margaret hodge and action has been dropped against her in, as the guardian puts it, their bid to end the anti—semitism row. guardian puts it, their bid to end the anti-semitism row. it's a terrible row engulfing the labour party, the inability to deal with what must be seen as institutional anti—semitism at this point. it has all anti—semitism at this point. it has a ll started anti—semitism at this point. it has all started with corbyn deciding that he wanted to adopt a different definition of anti—semitism to the ih area definition of anti—semitism to the ih are a anti—semitism definition, and this led to words between margaret and another mp, ian austin, and the leader, and an investigation will was launched against margaret hodge for her behaviour and ian austin for her behaviour, which was seen as austin for her behaviour, which was seen as inappropriate —— an investigation was launched. tom
11:40 pm
watson, the deputy leader, said a couple of days ago he thought it should be dropped and the anti—semitism definition should be taken on as the definition of anti—semitism for labour, at which pointan anti—semitism for labour, at which point an appalling campaign, resign watson, was launched on twitter, and it has been revolting in its level of anti—semitism and abuse and is disgraceful in any democracy. now we hear today that the action against margaret hodge but not ian austin has been dropped, but labour claim ina has been dropped, but labour claim in a spectacular own goal that margaret hodge has apologised, she has claimed she has not apologised. in trying to close down the row, a new one has opened. it seems there's no way to put this to bed and i think it is really time forjeremy corbyn to take the wise advice of tom watson in this and both of the
11:41 pm
investigation is without qualification against ian austin and margaret hodge and two accept the standard definition of anti—semitism. standard definition of anti-semitism. is that the way he should be behaving?” anti-semitism. is that the way he should be behaving? i think if he doesn't do that his hand will be forced by mps —— to accept. doesn't do that his hand will be forced by mps -- to accept. he will have to do it anyway? when parliament comes back after the summer recess on the parliament comes back after the summer recess on the fifth of september there will be a meeting of the parliamentary labour party and they will vote about whether to adopt the international holocaust remembrance alliance's full definition of anti—semitism, and i think mps will generally back that but mr cormann has been desperate to diffuse this row, it has an announcement on universal basic income —— mr corbyn. it's overshadowed by this anti—semitism. the bare minimum is to stop the campaign against margaret hodge, and we are speaking about a lot of mps
11:42 pm
saying it's going on in the party. it's good it's been dropped but this row will go on for the rest of august. in the meantime we read of this secret plot on the front of the express, this dates back to before the anti—semitism row according to the anti—semitism row according to the express, but we've got people going to a luxury holiday estate to talk about their leader it seems. westminster injury, normally pops up in the summer season when everyone is plotting and it is getting interesting —— westminster intrigue. people staying at an expensive hotel. the people going are the usual suspects, chuka umunna,
11:43 pm
kinnock, kenna, vocal critics of jeremy corbyn's leadership but anti—brexit, campaigning for a people's vote, people do rethink about the question of leaving the eu. they've been meeting semi— regularly but this is about a meeting in may. what i struggle with in this story is how are they going to do it? i was about to raise that, they are 12 mps, you call them usual suspects, but all the evidence suggests that the vast majority of labour party members based on how they voted twice wantjeremy corbyn as their leader. one of the things jeremy corbyn and his team have been particularly smart at doing is embedding called an ism throughout the party, which means it's extremely difficult to oustjeremy corbyn as leader without his consent in someway, but even if that happens and he becomes fatally wounded by the anti—semitism row or something else, it would be almost incomprehensible to imagine that a
11:44 pm
more right wing labour leader could replace him. sitting behind him in parliament are a group of people who don't agree with him which we know already. also they have put ahead above the parapet even more than they have before. they're going to be subjected to all the kinds of abuse we have seen online in previous occasions when this kind of thing has happened. they are in the line of fire for all the threatened the selections, which we've been hearing about before this, so their far less likely to vote for an election than they may have done —— deselections —— they are far. election than they may have done —— deselections -- they are far. their argument for staying in the labour party was if jeremy argument for staying in the labour party was ifjeremy corbyn becomes prime minister they can act as a tempering force on some of his policy in stings because they don't agree with some of the more radical things he would want to do if he got to downing street —— policy instinct is. as the brexit row goes on and
11:45 pm
the anti—semitism row goes on, it is ha rd the anti—semitism row goes on, it is hard to make that argument. the anti—semitism row goes on, it is hard to make that argumentm the anti—semitism row goes on, it is hard to make that argument. it goes back to the argument of 1981. stay and fight or do you go away. that is what they have been discussing in this sussex farmhouse. whether it is worth them saying it is time to break away. we will see if they do anything about it. wait for the next group who get on the 7:14am from waterloo. there will be a few journalists on that! is why the ft, donald trump reimpose sanctions on iran. —— the ft. what is going on in iran is an interesting aspect? this was donald trump's promised to scrap the iran deal, he said it was rubbish, the us was not coming well out of it. he withdrew from it. the deal stands,
11:46 pm
broadly speaking because france germany and britain are behind it. the us has been a signatory of the steel it is barred from buying us aircraft and can't trade it, metals and materials, steel and aircraft and can't trade it, metals and materials, steeland aluminium. a huge decline in its currency. on the fifth of november, that is going to hit iran in oil and gas. there is anger that story much focused towards president trump, not towards the administration. do you see the uk is sticking firmly with the european side. the problem is even if the uk, european companies want to do legitimate business with iran,
11:47 pm
even though there is an eu blocking statute which is supposed to protect them from extraterritorial sanctions, the reality is, that is going to be challenging going forward and iran is concerned going forward. rouhani has expressed his concerns about how that will be upheld. of course, with brexit approaching, what does that mean for uk companies? that is a particular aspect of president trump's determination to pursue this particular diplomatic approach which is going to cause problems for uk and european companies. he mentioned brexit. that is go to the times. this is a leaked letter which has come from police and crime commissioners who have called on sajid david to putting contingency plans for no deal brexit. lack of
11:48 pm
capacity which will come into place insta ntly capacity which will come into place instantly if there is no deal. brussels have been clear that they will lose access. key databases, the eu criminal record, but also cross european police force information sharing databases european police force information sharing data bases about european police force information sharing databases about suspects and missing persons. it is not clear to me watkinson —— what contingency plans be put in place to address that problem. there could be some mitigation. they called for some additional resources to help with recruitment, betting and training of staff to try and address it but you're not going to be able to replace the sharing of that information in a seamless way in which that is happening. the obvious a nswer which that is happening. the obvious answer is to avoid no deal scenario. sebastien, we are seeing a succession of organisations stating
11:49 pm
that no deal brexit happens, the consequences will be axed, why, z. what is going on? we are stuck in these negotiations that theresa may put forward. that was really at the edge, many parts of the conservative party, david davis, borisjohnson, a gang of 20, 30 mp5 who will not countenance those compromises but it hasn't flowed in brussels at all either. these proposals have not had a good reception from barnier, or macron or rachel noble. and we heard from dr liam fox, he thinks there is a 60% chance. the bank of england said it is uncomfortably high. people are warming —— warning what
11:50 pm
it means. nobody really knows what no deal brexit would mean. the country has ever left the eu before. britain has never left the eu before. finding legal certainty, trading certainty, economic certainty. if that certainty is not there, you can guess what is going to happen. all the stuff we heard from food organisations, supermarkets, businesses is about trying to mitigate because we can ta ke trying to mitigate because we can take actions for no deal. what we don't know is what the eu would do. switching off uk access to crucial criminal databases. that switching off uk access to crucial criminal data bases. that sort switching off uk access to crucial criminal databases. that sort of thing, we can't do much about it. we might not like it, we can hire more police to countenance it but it's still going to happen and we will have an impact. nicola, the metro,
11:51 pm
global warming doomsday alert. the rise in temperature might go more quickly than we were told before. this is the research which has come out which says we are approaching a colour —— a climatic tipping point which it is the future of humanity. this is the planet is decades away. ten feedback mechanisms. it says two degrees higher than preindustrial times could trigger that event in finding we are halfway there already. this would have severe risks to health, economy, political stability. using technologies which are already developing. i'm going to
11:52 pm
have anything is there. you can watch the programme later. hello, you're live at the bbc sport centre with me chris mitchell. it's been another successful night
11:53 pm
in the pool. the mixed gold ax100m metre medley relay. the team is maturing. we have got a young fire coming through now. these guys have had races. we were showing a little bit of team but that stood the crowd. james wilby has won silver in the men's 200 metre briscoe —— breaststroke. the gold was taken by russia's swimmer. luca pizzini of italy took it. thomas won gold in april and went into monday's finals while number one but could only
11:54 pm
managed to swim to second slower than she did on the gold coast. and there was bronze too for max litchfield in the men's 200m individual medley. fellow brit mark zaranek finised fifth, a second off the podium. great britain's katie archibald wasn't able to defend her european omnium title in glasgow. she was beaten by dutch world champion kirsten wild despite winning the elimination race, the third of the four omnium events. that brings archibald's medal tally to three after claiming gold in the team pursuit and silver in the individual pursuit earlier in the championships. once i realised that i didn't have it, it switched off and then you think you are going to have to go forth lap gains and it was a bit of a non— race because gold was unachievable and silver was already done so it was kind of this
11:55 pm
horrible, i can't go there, there is nothing to defend here, what am i doing? so, yeah, a bit dejected. britain's ethan hayter won a dramatic bronze alongside ollie wood in the madison, to claim his third medal of the championships. the pair took the final sprint of the 200 lap race, worth double points, to move themselves onto the podium. hayter also got bronze in the pursuit as well a gold in the omnium. quite a few days for him! there was disappointment for great britain's jack carlin as he missed out on bronze in the men's sprint. he was beaten by dutch rider harrie lavreysen in their deciding sprint. the athletics gets underway properly over in berlin tomorrow, the other host city of this event, but qualifying has been taking place today. great britain captain, dai green, a former world champion, was meant to be taking part, but has pulled out due to a hamstring issue. aston villa put all their financial problems behind them as they won their opening championship match of the season 3—1 at hull.
11:56 pm
the hosts had led early on when brazilian evandro got on the end of this punch by the villa goalkeeper, and looped in a brilliant strike from 20 yards! but last year's beaten playoff finalists were level through tommy elphick, and then ahead through old hull player ahmed elmohamady. and then right—back alan hutton got his first goal since december, 2014 to cap off the victory for steve bruce's side. chelsea goalkeeper thibaut courtois, who's been heavily linked with a move to real madrid, did not report for training with the premier league club this morning. the belgian, who's publicly asked for the move, has been with chelsea since 2011 and previously played in the spanish capital for atletico madrid, where his children are based. it's thought chelsea do not know when the 26—year—old will return. that's all the sport for now. hello there. well, temperatures were
11:57 pm
very high again across the south—east of england into east anglia. 32, quite widely across the london area and into kent, lovely sunset up and down the country but particularly across the south—east with the sunshine. more cloud across the north and west of the country. it's going to hang on here through the course of the night thanks to a week at the front. just infringing, the south—west of england. low cloud, missed and merck, warm and mighty. temperatures close to the seasonal average across the north and west. the last of the hot and very sunny days across the south—east. sunshine of the word go. even then, sunny spells will break through, quite pleasant. eyes again,
