flattening houses close to the shore and then rushing into the densely populated coastal city of palu. the waves and the powerful quake leaving a trail of destruction. this bridge is one of the main access road into the city. authorities issued a tsunami warning immediately after the huge 7.7 magnitude quake hit. but residents did not have long to get to higher land. rescue workers are now struggling to reach the area as two access roads are blocked and the airport is now closed. the runway cracked in the quake. the military has been called in to help. translation: as for
the damage from the tsunami we received a number of reports that many bodies were found along the shoreline but the numbers are still unknown. the main hospital in the city was also damaged and medical workers are now struggling to treat the injured in makeshift tents. the death toll is expected to continue to rise. after—shocks are still being felt in the area and residents are being told to stay out in the open. indonesia is in the ring of fire and no stranger to natural disasters. earthquakes injuly and august killed more than 500 people on the tourist island of lombok. and now, so soon after, authorities are once again struggling to cope with the scale of this disaster. the car giant toyota — has told the bbc
that production at its derbyshire factory would be severely disrupted if britain left the eu without a trade deal. it said delays for parts at the border and stops in its assembly line would be expensive and could have an impact onjobs and future investment at the plant. sanchia berg reports. 600 cars roll off the line here every day at toyota's factory near derby. each one built to order. it works because the parts only arrive when they are needed. summoned at a day's notice from suppliers in the uk and europe, put straight onto the production line. there is no wearhouse so if the truck gets stuck the line can stop. hard brexit, delays at the border would magnify that. if we crash out of the eu at the end of march the supply chain will be impacted and we will see production stopped in our factory. he doesn't know how long that disruption would be. hours, days, possibly weeks. that would be expensive for toyota which has just invested a quarter of a billion pounds in this plant to build the new corolla here.
it would reduce our competitiveness. sadly i think that would reduce the number of cars made in the uk and that would costjobs. they are calling for free movement of goods between britain and the eu as the prime minister outlined in her chequers proposal. toyota is not the only car—maker to be worried about the implications of a hard brexit. all the major manufacturers have complex supply chains extending in the european union. and while the sector directly employees under 200,000 people it is estimated that close to a million british jobs depend on it. the government said it was determined to ensure that britain remains a competitive location for carmaking, that it had proposed a credible plan to the eu for the future relationship and it looked forward to continuing the negotiations.
joining me on the line is the conservative mp for south derbyshire, heather wheeler. her constituency includes toyota's burnaston plant the four toyota works with the government to get the sort of deal the whole country wants. have you spoken to anyone from the toyota plant? they kindly contacted me yesterday.
i don't understand. could you clarify what the bbc have done? i don't understand. could you clarify what the bbc have done ?m you knew you were running the piece, you knew you were running the piece, you could have contacted me yesterday, but you didn't. people have contacted you want twitter asking what you think. people within your constituency are contacting you and you are not replying. your constituency are contacting you and you are not replyinglj your constituency are contacting you and you are not replying. i never use twitter for casework. people can e—mail me on my parliamentary e—mail. i always need to know that they actually live in my constituency. this is not really a local issue. let's take you
back to 21 september. do you still fully support the prime minister setting the record straight. of course i support the prime minister. iam course i support the prime minister. i am trying to answer your question. calm down. goodness me, it is a gorgeous saturday afternoon. let's have a nice conversation. the prime minister is saying it is in europe's interest as well as ours to have a frictionless border. obviously toyota do not agree with that. there are plans forup toyota do not agree with that. there are plans for up to 400 jobs. this is one of mine planted in the uk. they will be wondering if it is off the table. of course it is not.
negotiations carry on until 29 march. i would like them to be settled by the start of november. that would be the best for everyone in the uk and in europe. these conversations are going on in bmw in germany, of course. we are trying to negotiate free—trade. germany, of course. we are trying to negotiate free-trade. it is very unusualfor negotiate free-trade. it is very unusual for toyota to speak out. many automobile companies are saying it is not just many automobile companies are saying it is notjust about many automobile companies are saying it is not just about a many automobile companies are saying it is notjust about a frictionless border. at this point it is about uncertainty. you mentioning the march date is not offering a reassuring message. march date is not offering a reassuring messagelj march date is not offering a reassuring message. i am stating to you the bleeding obvious. we want this to be sorted out in october or
november. we want some sense of talking to people in brussels. ok. are you attending the conference?” am not. why not? because my husband died four weeks ago and i am dealing with that. my condolences. there has been a security breach with the tory conference at. is less affected you? i haven't looked at it. we appreciate you speaking to as. you are welcome. goodbye. if you are
joining us, that was the mp heather wheeler who was within the constituency of south derbyshire where the toyota burnaston plant lies. toyota raising concerns about an ordeal brexit. a day before the conservative conference starts in birmingham, it's emerged that an app set up by the tories for the event has a security flaw. anyone knowing the email address of a politician or delegate was able to log in and obtain other personal details, including their phone number. let's cross to our reporter in birmingham. take us through the agenda. can we to see first off this weekend? there will be no end of talk about brexit. double drive now pretty much everything else. we should not be surprised because that
has drowned out pretty much every other conversation for the last two 01’ other conversation for the last two or three years. and is likely to be plenty of time yet. this afternoon, people arrived in birmingham and the prime minister is due later on. we can show you some pictures of the conservative party conference at. it allows people like me to find out what is going on. but there is a problem. it was highlighted by a member earlier this afternoon. there was a function on this app which seem to have a problem. you were able to type in the e—mail address of anyone you happen to know who was going to the conference. upward pop their
photograph and telephone number. in other words, deeply sensitive and personal information. when became public knowledge on social media this was a bug, preach with —— breach within the app, the conservative party seemed to rectify it very quickly. but they're dealing with something deeply embarrassing. a cabinet minister today is out and about in our news bulletins grumbling about what has been going on at facebook. there is a whole issue about data privacy and breaches of security. here it is happening with their own app. we have had some reaction from the information commissioner. they have said, we are aware of an incident involving the conservative party conference at. they have a legal duty to keep personal data under gdp
are. new legislation came in several months ago. information commissioner says they must notify the commission's offers within 72 hours if they are aware of our personal data breach which could pose a risk to people is and freedoms.” data breach which could pose a risk to people is and freedoms. i do apologise. we don't have the best line with you. there are some technical problems. either on the line with your microphone. we will come back to you. we will revisit the subject you're discussing. the conservative party conference starting this weekend. within the next hour, we will return to that. the headlines on bbc news... rescuers in indonesia say at least 384 people have been killed in the tsunami that struck the island of sulawesi. the business secretary warns that a no—deal brexit could jeopardise britain's status
as a world leader in the car industry. a security breach in the conservative party conference app reveals contact details for senior mps and journalists. europe continued to dominate at the ryder cup. the extended their lead over the usa to 8—4. the afternoon foursomes are more finely balanced. jose mourinho's side were beaten 3—1 at west ham. the worst start to a league season for 20 years. join us at 5:30pm for more on all of those stories. the business secretary, greg clark has called a security
breach affecting millions of users of facebook a very worrying development. mr clark told the bbc, the information commissioner would be taking steps with facebook to ensure lessons are learnt. the company says 50 million users worldwide were affected but the breach has now been fixed. our business correspondent, joe miller, reports. last time uk authorities stepped in over a facebook data breach, it led to this raid on cambridge analytica's offices in london. now, facebook itself is dealing with a far more complex and sinister invasion by unknown attackers. until yesterday facebook users could click on a tab called "view as" to see what their profile looked like to friends and to members of the general public. but a vulnerability in the code for that feature allowed hackers to infiltrate millions of accounts and it is why users around the world received messages like this and were forced to log back in on all of their devices. facebook boss mark zuckerberg often leaves the firefighting to his lieutenants. but this time he sought to reassure reporters himself,
saying the bug had been fixed, but warning that facebook would always be a target. it's an arms race, and we are continuing to improve our defences. i think that this also underscores that there are just constant attacks from people who are trying to take over accounts or steal information from people in our community. such attacks are also of concern to the uk government. we don't know what the source or the reason for the breach is, and how far reaching its consequences are. but the information commissioner in this country, i know, will be taking steps with the company to make sure that the lessons are learned to prevent it happening in future. we didn't come here for clickbait... facebook‘s previous scandal wiped tens of billions off its market value. not so this time, as investors are starting to believe that, despite negative headlines, its 2 million users will not desert the platform. joining me now
is the regional director of cyber security company link11, attish pattni. this was released on tuesday, the news of this breach. we are only really learning about it towards the end of the week. is that how you understand it? not quite. the breach was announced earlier in the week. it took approximately two days to be stopped. we are already pointing to the fact that this breach occurred due to some code changes they made injuly 2017, so potentially due to some code changes they made in july 2017, so potentially this has been happening since then. and thatis has been happening since then. and that is the worrying thing. they we re that is the worrying thing. they were backing the hackers until that time? the vulnerabilities have been
in place for over a year. weather the attackers have been using for that time remains to be seen. what is the bigger problem? users of social media need to be aware of things. we all find managing passwords difficult. memorising passwords difficult. memorising passwords is very difficult. 0ne passwords difficult. memorising passwords is very difficult. one of the models we have seen grow in the last few years is single sign on. i can use my facebook or google credentials for other applications. the risk they are... they encourage us the risk they are... they encourage us to do that. absolutely. if we are going to these companies to trust them to look after our credentials and they are actually being breached, that poses a serious risk not just
breached, that poses a serious risk notjust on facebook but actually on the other accounts we log in using oui’ the other accounts we log in using our facebook credentials. this week, as this news was grabbing our attention, i suddenly realised that attention, i suddenly realised that at the end of last week by the beginning of this week, i started getting messages pop up on my pc and my phone about implementing to factor security identification? that has been best practice for protecting passwords for about 15 yea rs protecting passwords for about 15 years now. we are seeing system is being rolled out across applications. it's just one of the many controls. may need several controls around them in order to protect credentials. so we need to
use them. thank you. a nightclub was evacuated and 40 people were treated by paramedics , people were treated by paramedics after reports that an irritant — suspected to be tear gas , had been released inside the venue. dorset police were called after people at cameo nightclub complained of irritated eyes and shortness of breath. one person was taken to hospital as precaution. police said there is no ongoing risk to the public. two british women have been killed in a car crash in oman. the incident took place on the south coast of salalah, close to the border with yemen. a british man was also injured in the crash, and is believed to be in hospital in a stable condition. the identity of the victims is not yet known. a man has died after a collision in burnley after police followed the car he was travelling in. before the collision — which took place on colne road shortly before 1:30am this morning — the vehicle had been requested
to stop by the police. the car hit a lampost, killing the front seat passenger. two other men in the car are being treated for their injuries in hospital. gerry mccann, whose daughter madeleine disappeared from an algarve holiday apartment in may 2007, has told the bbc about the moment she vanished, and how he has been coping with grief and loss. the mccanns have also released a new picture showing mr mccann together with madeleine, and her younger sister, amelie. there was an overwhelming feeling of helplessness that we couldn't do anything. i think that experience that we were feeling right at the centre of it was like a rebel or tidal wave gone out and crashing into all ourfamily and tidal wave gone out and crashing into all our family and friends as they heard what had happened. that was gerry mccann talking on bbc radio 4. you can listen to the full
interview, called pearl: two fathers, two daughters, on bbc iplayer. people with severe allergies have been told they can use their epipens past their normal expiry date because of a continuing shortage. the medicines regulator said, it had agreed to extend the use—by date of some of the devices by four months. our health correspondent dominic hughes has more. the inquest into the death of natasha ednan—laperouse has highlighted the issues facing people who suffer from severe allergic reactions. in her case, adrenaline injections from a device called an epipen were not enough to save her. but many rely on them for emergency treatment. michelle henry uses them to protect her nine—year—old son who lives with multiple allergies. now a shortage of epipens, the uk's biggest brand, means desperate parents have been left looking for alternatives. it is not good enough and the problem is, the onus is on the parent, not the doctor,
not the pharmacist, not the supplier, to deal with the problem. your child, you know the danger your child has and the onus is very much on you to actually physically go round the houses until you get a solution. the department for health and social care is warning that stocks of the adrenaline injector for children have run out and that epipens for children and adults will remain in short supply for the rest of the year. patients are being advised that some batches can be used for up to four months after the official expiry date. i would certainly recommend to my patients that if they were having a severe reaction and they noticed their epipen was out of date, i would rather that they checked to look, if the liquid inside is clear, it is safe to use even though it is expired. that said, it won't be as effective but it's better than not using anything at all. of course, make sure you call for emergency help straightaway. some patients will be advised to start using alternative
injected devices. meanwhile, the government is working with the makers of epipen to resolve the issue. it's been another good morning for europe's golfers at the ryder cup in paris. after this morning's four balls — where europe won 3 out of the 4 matches taking place — europe now hold an 8 points to 4 lead over the united states. our sports reporter, john watson, is there. any further developments? it's very tight. there are four matches in place this afternoon. the foursomes see each member of the team taking alternate shots with a single ball. it is 2-2. it alternate shots with a single ball. it is 2—2. it could change the complexion of the european lead somewhat. it would look good if they could go in later with the potential 10-6 could go in later with the potential 10—6 lead. as things stand at the
moment, justin rose is playing alongside henrik stenson up against dustinjohnson alongside henrik stenson up against dustin johnson and brooks alongside henrik stenson up against dustinjohnson and brooks koepka. they are one up in that match with around two or three holes left to play. and of course if the united states can pick up an extra point thenit states can pick up an extra point then it would certainly change things somewhat. as we know, no team in ryder cup history has ever come back from more than a four—point deficit heading into the final day of the singles matches to come. that each of the 12 members of the european and american teams play those singles matches. if they could potentially going 10—7, america will feel buoyed by that and it will give them a better chance heading into singles matches to come. it is finely balanced at the moment. europe will feel happier following that victory, winning those three out of four matches in the four balls. they had that incredible
clea n swee p balls. they had that incredible clean sweep yesterday afternoon in the foursomes. no european team has ever achieved that in ryder cup history. europe have the momentum. we will keep a close eye on the foursomes matches this afternoon. then we wait to see those all—important pairings. then we wait to see those all—importa nt pairings. what then we wait to see those all—important pairings. what all the european captain do when it comes to facing the likes ofjordan spieth and tiger woods tomorrow? his team have the momentum at the moment and i think it's fair to say europe will be the happier if they can cling onto that lead they have at the moment. if they can take those two extra points with them, 10—6, heading into the singles tomorrow. lots of figures there. thank you. hello. a fine end to the afternoon. different story further north, more clout for northern ireland and scotland, further outbreaks of rape and western isles, strong wind as well.
