ever position of 19th... wales stay 29th but northern ireland drop five places to 61st. that's all the sport for now. you can find more on all those stories on the bbc sport website. good afternoon, you were watching bbc news. let's return to our top story, the parents of a 15—year—old girl, who died after suffering an allergic reaction to a pret a manger baguette, have demanded changes to food labelling laws. natasha ednan—laperouse collapsed during a flight from heathrow to nice in 2016, after buying the sandwich at the airport. in the last hour or so, natasha's father has been speaking outside the court. he said that his daughter's death
1:39 pm
should serve as a watershed moment. we would like to thank the coroner, doctor sean cummings, for how he has handled natasha's inquest and our legal team for their support throughout. we would also like to thank the public for their great kindness that they have shown, and the media for their sensitive reporting, and we would like to express our sincere gratitude to doctor pearson jones, express our sincere gratitude to doctor pearsonjones, the young doctor whose efforts to save natasha's life —— for his efforts to save natasha ‘s life. it's been an incredibly difficult week for us as a family, but the process has, however, shed light on very important issues that led to natasha's death. notjust for us as natasha's death. notjust for us as natasha's family, but for all allergy sufferers. our beloved daughter died in a tragedy that should never have happened. and we believe that this inquest has shown
1:40 pm
that she died because of inadequate food labelling laws. we are also shocked to learn that there have been a number of previous serious allergic incidents involving sesame seeds at pratt onjay before our daughter died. it feels to us that, —— preta daughter died. it feels to us that, —— pret a manger. if easter ross if pret a manger was following the law, the law was playing russian roulette with our daughter's life. it is clear that the food labelling laws, as they stand today, are not fit for purpose, and it is now time to change the law. natasha ‘s inquest should serve as a watershed moment, to make meaningful change and to save lives. the lawyers for the family also spoke — and called for a change in the law to avoid a tragedy like this happening again. what we have learned over the past
1:41 pm
five days is that natasha died of anaphylaxis as a result of ingesting hidden sesame in a pret a manger artichoke and olive baguette. the inquest has made it clear that the lack of allergy labelling on food led to the death of a 15—year—old girl. the law, as it stands, currently treats multinational companies in the same way as a local sandwich shop. this cannot be right. we call on michael gove to take immediate action in response to the coroner's report, and we also call upon the manufacturers of epipens to take action. the coroner found that pret a manger‘s procedures for monitoring and recording reports of problems with food or items purchased at pret were inadequate and incoherent. we hope that lessons will be learned from this inquest, so this sort of tragedy never happened again. the legal team working on behalf of
1:42 pm
the family. the chief executive of pret a manger then spoke and apologised to the family for natasha's death. we're deeply sorry for natasha's death. we cannot begin to comprehend the pain the family have felt and the grief they will continue to feel. we've listened to everything the coroner and natasha's family have said this week and we will learn from it. all of us at pret want meaningful change to come from this tragedy. we will ensure that it does.
1:43 pm
the chief executive of the sandwich chain speaking outside of the coroner ‘s court, we will speak more about that and the coroner's strong words through the course of the afternoon. the mao in warwickshire has been closed in both directions after a crash involving three goods vehicles and a separate lorry fire. highways england warned the motorway could remain shut, between warwick and henley—in—arden, for the rest of the day, following the 4am pile—up. warwickshire police posted this footage on social media showing emergency crews tackling the lorry fire. after yesterday's dramatic testimony, the us senatejudiciary committee must now decide whether to support brett kavanaugh‘s nomination as a supreme courtjudge. ultimately, the full senate will need to confirm the appointment. that vote is expected next week. the supreme court plays a vital role
1:44 pm
in us political life — appointed for life, its nine members have the final say on us law. well, cbs news has been speaking to president trump's special counsellor kellyanne conway, who defended mr. kava naugh‘s performance at yesterday's hearing. what he was responding to yesterday was two and a half weeks of a political hitjob, where the democrats and the committee treated both he and dr ford very unfairly. they abused him for their own purposes. he showed them respect and deference in his original hearing, and they showed him destruction in return. i hear you, and the partisan
1:45 pm
message is quite clear that the american bar association, when lindsey graham was reacting, he cited that is being the bold standard, they took something different from this test mini yesterday. they have asked for a delay until the fbi can investigate dr ford ‘s claims. the president has the ability to ask for that and, since it was his nominee, will the president listen to the aba, which senator graham called the gold standard? the president is listening to senatorjoe biden in 1991, where he said anyone who thinks the fbi makes conclusions does not understand anything... not conclusions, just an investigation to tighten up these details. we had that yesterday for the whole country to see. your reporting from your colleague is very instructive here, in that the sex crimes prosecutor, who the
1:46 pm
republicans asked to do the questions to do for dr ford respectfully and patiently, but she would never have enough evidence in a court of law to prosecute, the fbi has conducted six successful betting is of brett kavanaugh throughout his career. he has raised his right hand is many times, taking oath to the constitution and swearing to uphold the law. the most recent vetting occurred this summer, with the letter that dr ford apparently sent to the democrats asking for anonymity. the vetting result is on the desk of every democratic senator, open it up and look at it. you will not find anything that will cast doubt, except the most hardened partisan against the judge ‘s nomination. he provided the country corroborating evidence as to his qualifications and temperament to be on the supreme court. kellyanne conway, speaking to cbs news this morning. in a moment we'll have all the business news, but first the headlines on bbc news... two years after the death of a teenager who ate a pret—a—manger baguette containing sesame seeds — the coroner rules

bloom and wilde, to bacon! there's a lack of regular deliveries, especially in rural areas, and this is applicable to rural areas where people cannot get to the shops, particularly niche products, that they cannot get on the high street or in rural locations? we pride ourselves on our rural delivery. as a guardian of the universal service, we deliver anywhere in the country to the same rigorous standards. the standards that are available in europe. for us, this is part of the service and it's a very important pa rt service and it's a very important part of connecting people in rural locations to connected lifestyles. but how do you, specifically, catch onto the market? it'sjust but how do you, specifically, catch onto the market? it's just another market? but now you have a lot of competition. and it comes down to our ability to deliver first time.

1:56 pm
because of the flap, what they call it, started dying. they rushed me back in. i had a 16 hour and then a ten hour surgery. you took pictures of yourself, why? was that for others or you? when i was first diagnosed, i was very much about being open with everything. i started a blog and had instagram photos. i want people to understand the reality of what this is. you see me now and you don't know what i'd been through, i wanted people to understand that. i thought it was important to have that. as time went on and i was taking them, it became an important part of my recovery. day—to—day, you don't think anything has got better. you are still sitting there, swollen, with all of these problems. you could be thinking, this will never get better. but then i'd take a photo and go, my god, i have come so far. a truly remarkable story, jen taylor speaking to us on the bbc this morning. time for a look at the weather now,
