to the bbc news at 9:00. sir david attenborough will make a speech at the united nation's climate change talks in poland today — the most critical meeting since the 2015 paris agreement. sir david will be representing the un's "people's seat", an initiative which gave citizens around the world the opportunity to send their messages to leaders via social media. his speech will be made up of some of those comments. my my message is the people of the world know the world is changing and they are behind politicians taking action. that is what the people's
seatin action. that is what the people's seat in this new conference just coming up, is representing. people wa nt to coming up, is representing. people want to stop climate change. our environment correspondent, matt mcgrath, is at the conference in katowice in poland. we had sir david attenborough per representing the views of the people but it is what the leaders come up with that is important. how significant is there gathering?m is significant. probably the most significant gathering on climate change since the paris agreement was signed three years ago. most of the negotiators are concerned with finishing the paris rule book, the operational plans to put that deal into practice when it becomes operational in 2020. but people are aware of what the signs are saying over the last couple of months, time is running short and the task is very difficult. they are where people have been demonstrating in many parts of the world and young people are keen to see progress.
negotiators are feeling the pressure and there is a great sense of urgency. david attenborough will come here today, make his speech and galvanise people with warnings about what might happen if they don't take action that has been recommended by scientists. the fact the united states, president trump has pulled the united states out of the paris agreement, what difference is that going to make to the weight of what is agreed here in poland?” going to make to the weight of what is agreed here in poland? i think it is agreed here in poland? i think it is no doubt, the united states not been fully involved in this situation, they are still tied into this agreement until 2020, but not being fully involved has had a deflating effect on many other countries who may have pull their punches a bit on climate change. but it is galvanising the remaining forces and that is everybody else pretty much in the entire world. the leaders of france, germany and everybody else are keen to use this forum to show president trump, if
you like, international cooperation on climate change is the only way to tackle this problem and they are hoping that message will ring through to the negotiators over the next couple of weeks. thank you very much from the conference in poland. professorjoanna haigh is co—director at the grantham institute for climate change, and joins me now. thank you for coming in. our correspondent saying time is running short and the aims are very difficult, would you agree with that? absolutely. to keep the global temperature to less than 2 degrees or less than1.5 temperature to less than 2 degrees or less than 1.5 degrees, we need to peak emissions in the next 12 years and get to zero carbon emissions by the middle of the century and this isa the middle of the century and this is a big ask. how achievable is it? it is going to be very difficult but if we don't do anything it will be impossible so the sooner we start $0011
impossible so the sooner we start soon it will be achieved. many countries are taking good action to get to that position where they can be in get to that position where they can beina get to that position where they can be in a zero carbon economy. would you say progress has been made since the paris agreement was agreed three yea rs the paris agreement was agreed three years ago? it is difficult to see any real achievements. the carbon emissions have carried on growing over the last few years. there has been a lot of talk but not enough action. is this because it is a lack of political will? yes, action. is this because it is a lack of politicalwill? yes, but action. is this because it is a lack of political will? yes, but there are solution back could be implemented relatively easily at different scales, more renewable energy, using less energy and being more efficient and these things can be done easily if people have the mind to do it. is it the case there is more political will in some countries than others. countries like america have pointed the finger at china and america and said if they don't reduce their emissions, why should we? if we start with the united states, president trump has
decided not to go along with the paris agreement and that means the usa may not be part of this rule book they are discussing. but the individual states are deciding they wa nt to individual states are deciding they want to act on climate change because they see the necessity for it. india is doing a lot to implement renewable energy, particularly solar energy. china is interesting because they were very up interesting because they were very upfor it interesting because they were very up for it at the paris meeting but we're not sure what is going on now. they are implementing a lot of renewable energy even there, so it is possible. this is a big global meeting, following on from one in argentina last week, bigi 20 where we saw possibly the opposite of international cooperation. what hope is there will be something solid that comes out of this in poland? you just hope the countries realise the danger of not doing anything. it impacts everybody in the world, it will impact the poorer countries worse unfortunately, but it does
impact everybody. we started with sir david attenborough giving views of the public, will it make a difference? i think so because voters will make the difference in the end. if they say we want action on climate change, let's hope there will be. ok, professor, thank you for coming in. the government's chief legal adviser, the attorney general, will publish a shortened version of his guidance on theresa may's brexit withdrawal agreement later today, but mps of all parties are demanding to see the document in full. they are concerned by reports that geoffrey cox's advice contains a suggestion that the uk could end up in an indefinite customs union with the eu. the government says it must be free to receive full and frank legal advice in confidence. so, a busy few days ahead for the government. later today geoffrey cox will make his statement in parliament on the legal advice given to ministers tomorrow theresa may will begin five days of debate on that agreement and on the document setting out plans for the uk's future relationship with the eu.
after that, on tuesday december the 11th, mps will be able to have their say in a "meaningful vote" on the brexit deal let's go to westminster now and speak to our assistant political editor, norman smith. very busy two weeks ahead for the government but talk today after a very difficult day over this business of publishing the legal advice. what do you think will happen when geoffrey cox stands up? there is a head of steam building up, notjust on the opposition benches but among some tory mps, prominent brexiteers like boris johnson. some former remain cabinet ministers like stephen crabb saying they think the legal advice should be published. parliament did vote unanimously for the legal advice to be published a couple of weeks ago.
the government's view is to publish the advice is unprecedented, but more than that their fear is, where they to release the advice, in future, law officers would be relu cta nt to future, law officers would be reluctant to give frank and candid legal advice to ministers because they would be fearful it will be splashed all over the news bulletins and the newspapers. so instead, what they are proposing is that the attorney general should basically do and alan alva. alan alva in west wing was the republican presidential hopeful who got into sticky business over his support for the nuclear industry. the way he got around that was an unending news conference, question, after question, after question. in the end his critics thought they had had enough of that. and that is the hope the attorney general can do something similar in the house of commons. it is thought he will stay at the dispatch box
taking how many questions mps want in an effort to defuse their anger. but that might be an optimistic scenario when you listen to lord falconer this morning. there are occasions, and they happen infrequently, where if the state is about to embark on something, i think the public have the full right to know the full legal basis upon doing it. you refer to the iraq issue. the attorney general of the day published a short summary of his advice and then three years later, the full advice became public, which raised huge questions about the summary. surely it must be transparent about the most important treaty of the last 40 years so the public should know. and i think the iraq experience indicates that without full transparency, you have suspicion and doubt and conspiracy theories. let's have it out there. i have to say it's not clear to me that the opposition parties, plus a
few tories, even if they got a majority can force the government to release the advice because it is an almighty protracted and convoluted process and what will happen before the meaningful vote next tuesday. ahead of which, we are told theresa may will put a nationwide tour, which he and embarked on last week on hold and then she will be focusing on tory mps. she will be hunkered down in her commons office, summoning in sceptical tory mps to try and win them over. there will be much more of a drive to try and win over mps rather than public opinion. this morning we had the home secretary sajid javid coming out giving his backing. he has been rather reticent in the past few weeks. we have hardly heard anything from him. this morning he was behind the deal. lam the i am the first to admit it looks challenging. there is a lot of work
to be done from people like me and my colleagues in persuading more of out my colleagues in persuading more of our colleagues in parliament. that work is going on. but i am convinced as more people look at the deal, what it is up but more importantly, what it is up but more importantly, what it is up but more importantly, what it isn't, they will come round and that is what we are working towards. we are still waiting to see if this tv debate is going ahead and this is the one that has been pencilled in for sunday. theresa may and jeremy corbyn are still in a stand—off. theresa may is ok for them to go ahead on the bbc but they don't want ahead on the bbc but they don't want a panel of experts asking questions, they just want a head—to—head between the prime minister and the leader of the opposition. so watch this space to see if we get that tv debate. we will be glued, norman. thank you very much, norman smith. let's find out more about the possible constitutional ramifications. craig prescott is director
for the centre for parliament and public law at winchester university and joins me now. mr prescott, can parliament forced the government to release this advice? good morning. ultimately, as norman has said, it is going to be very difficult to force the government to release the advice in full before the meaningful vote. going down the contempt of parliament procedure is a clever tactic, but for that to yield any results, it's going to take considerably longer than resolving it all by next tuesday. so in theory they could force the government but in practice you are saying they can't really? it will be very difficult to do it yes, by next tuesday. it is a good way in which,
good example of how the government has started to lose control of the house of commons, because they are not ina house of commons, because they are not in a majority. they are a minority government losing the support of the dup and so the house of commons are able to exert pressure on the government in all sorts of ways across all sorts of aspects across brexit. this isjust the latest, i think, in many ways. i think the key issue is to what extent geoffrey cox will satisfy mps this afternoon with his statement and willingness to ansah as many questions mps have stop people are drawing parallels between the attorney general to publish its legal advice in full and what happened 15 years ago over the iraq warand happened 15 years ago over the iraq war and the pressure on the attorney general penty publishes advice to tony blair on the iraq war. do you think they are valid parallels?” tony blair on the iraq war. do you think they are valid parallels? i do think they are valid parallels? i do think there is. these are two
unbelievably important decisions the governments are reaching. there is a very strong argument that says the legal basis on which the government are making these decisions should be clear and transparent to parliament and the broader public. at the end of the day the uk is entering into a complex, new legal relationship with the european union with this withdrawal agreement and the government's view as to the legal implications of this new relationship should be a matter for public record. the issue is, to what extent the statement to parliament make that public record, or do we really need to see the advice of the attorney general? just briefly, what about the government's position, which is it hast to have free, frank legal advice in confidence in order to make its decision? that is true.
asa to make its decision? that is true. as a general rule, the government should be able to access legal advice in confidence, just like anyone else. but as i said, this is all about entering into a legal relationship and so the consequences of this new legal relationship with the eu should be clear and a matter for public debate. 0k, interesting. craig prescott, thank you for joining us. the headlines on bbc news... a key un conference on climate change opens in poland with a warning that global warming poses a greater threat to humanity than ever before. pressure mounts on the government to publish its legal advice on theresa may's brexit withdrawal deal — as labour warns of a "constitutional crisis" if the information is not released in full. crisis on our high streets — figures compiled by bbc news suggest 40,000 jobs have been lost or put at risk in the retail sector this year. good morning.
the liverpool manager jurgen klopp has apologised after his celebration went, shall we say, a little over the top when his side scored a very late winner against everton at anfield. celtic have won every trophy on offer in scotland since brendan rodgers took over as manager — that's seven injust over two years. figures compiled by the bbc indicate that about 40,000 retail jobs have either been lost or put at risk this year. 20,000 people have lost theirjobs, while a similar number are approaching christmas under the threat of redundancy. a change in shopping habits and rising business
costs have been blamed for the difficulties facing retailers. according to research from lancaster university, of those that have lost theirjob, only a third went back into the industry. john brailsford was made redundant earlier this year by carpet right. this is his story. i'mjohn. i've worked in retail forjust over 42 years. i've been made redundant five times, most recently this year with carpet right. very first thought, "uh—oh, here we go again". wasn't foreseen, it came completely out of the blue. and i just learned to take a step back. i couldn't affect it, find myself another job, dust myself down, carry on. watch that rug. i'm still working in retail because somebody once likened me to stick of blackpool rock. they said if they cut my arm off it would just say retail all the way through. so ijust find the rapport you can build up with clients and just making them smile,
you can't make the choice for them, you just have to help them and cajole them along. when they make the right choice, you've got a customer for life. i personally disagree with online retail because it's going to drive bricks and mortar retail into the ground. i think there's a place for both. if you are made redundant, don't panic, just take a step back, find the company you want to work for. there's plenty ofjobs out there. if you have to take a lower position, take one. if i can do it, anybody can do it. a senior welsh mp wants the government to outlaw a new, extreme far right group after an undercover bbc wales investigation revealed its online recruitment tactics. system resistance network says it wants a "white revolution" and urges followers to spread hate in communities. stephen doughty wants srn to be banned and platforms who promote it closed down. we need to have a much quicker process for looking at the
prescription of organisations and understand the due process is that have to go on. sometimes we do wait a long time before action is taken. but it's also about i think penalties for technology and internet companies that continue to host this content. a far—right party has won seats in a spanish regional election for the first time since the country's military dictatorship ended in 1975. the vox party took 12 parliamentary seats in andalusia on sunday, beating expectations. the governing socialist party still won more than any other party — 33 seats — but with a greatly reduced majority. lebo diseko has more they said they would make staying great again, and it seems many voters agreed. the vox party took 12 seats in andalusia's parliament on sunday, beating expectations. it is the first time a far right party has won seats in a regional
poll since the end of franco's dictatorship in the mid—1970s, a change vox leaders say is long overdue. translation: andalusian is have once again made history, as many times in the past. they have shaken off 36 years of socialist regimes, marking the way for the rest of the spanish people by saying that it is possible and even easier to do the same as the rest of the country. vox's leadership say their party's leadership is neitherfar right nor extremist, just a party of extreme necessity. but a tough stance from its candidates on issues like immigration seems to have struck a chord at the polls. the region has high unemployment and it is the main arrival point in the country for migrants crossing the mediterranean. french far right leader marine le pen tweeted a message of warm support and congratulations. the spanish party's win is just the latest in a resurgence of nationalism across europe. the win could make the party a kingmaker in a future coalition, and ultimately it could weaken the new prime minister, putting pressure on him
to call early elections. the head of m16, alex younger, will warn russia "not to underestimate our ca pabilities" in a rare speech in the next few hours. he'll describe how the intelligence service exposed those behind the novichok poisoning in salisbury, when a former russian spy and his daughter were targeted, and a british woman died. mr younger will address students at st andrew's university. police in tenerife are searching for a british woman who vanished from outside a bar in the early hours of friday morning. 28 year—old amy louise gerard, who is from cleethorpes, had been working as an animal trainer at a tenerife marine park. she was last seen outside an irish bar in puerto de la cruz in the north of the island. the foreign office says it is assisting her family. bbc analysis of official figures shows there's been a significant fall in the money councils spend on caring for each elderly person in england, scotland and wales
in the last eight years. the biggest drop was in england where spending has fallen by nearly a quarter. there are no comparable figures for northern ireland. here's our social affairs correspondent, alison holt. want a cup of tea? no? what about a glass of bitter lemon? this is a day when 89—year—old dottie harmon simply doesn't want to get out of bed. she has alzheimer's and needs constant care. it means her daughter sam has seen first—hand the pressures on the care system that today's analysis of spending reveals. mum is dancing in my garden to a song called happy. sam's photos and videos show the contrast of what life used to be like. but when they needed help, it was hard to get. her mother spent three months in a hospital ward before they found a bed in local authority funded home.
there is lots of expensive places for people to go. if you don't have £5,000 a month, well, between 4000 and £5,000 a month, then you have to wait for a local authority bed. it is crucial that as families, we find somewhere that is spot—on. because it is really tough? yeah. the bbc‘s analysis shows council spending on care for each person aged 65 and over has fallen in the last eight years, with the biggest drop in england. here at age uk portsmouth, they have said that has meant the loss of many early health services. i think in the long run it is costing us more because people are reaching that crisis point which possibly could have been prevented, and then they perhaps need more support, more help. councils say cuts to their funding have meant they have had
to make difficult choices. the government maintains it has put more than £3.6 billion extra into care this year, and that it will publish plans for its long—term funding soon. alison holt, bbc news, portsmouth. a vegan man is bringing a landmark legal action in which a tribunal will decide for the first time whether veganism is a philosophical belief, akin to a religion, and therefore protected in law. jordi casamitjana claims he was sacked by the "league against cruel sports" for disclosing it invested pension funds in companies that carried out tests on animals. our legal correspondent clive coleman has been to meet him. if these were puppies, do you think people should have the choice to kill them this way? this is veganism in action. this shows you the whole life of the animal, how they are killed. jordi casamitjana is an ethical vegan who regularly takes to the streets of london to inform and persuade others that they should take up the vegan lifestyle.
some people only eat a vegan diet but they don't care about the environment or the animal, only their health. i care about the animals and environment and my health and everything which is why i use this term ethical vegan, because to me vegan is a belief and affects all my life. jordi worked for the league against cruel sports and claims that to his surprise, he discovered it was investing its pension funds in companies that carried out animal testing. he says he drew this to his bosses' attention but when nothing changed, he informed other employees and was sacked as a result. in a statement, the league against cruel sports said: jordi is now bringing a legal case, claiming he was discriminated against on the basis of his vegan belief. for veganism to qualify
as a philosophical belief, it has to meet a number of criteria. for instance, it has to be genuinely held belief, it has to cover a substantial part of a person's life and it has to be worthy of respect in a democratic society. so that means that it can't interfere with the fundamental human rights of everyone else. butjust how practical is the legal recognition of everyone's beliefs? the irony in all this is that rights are intended to be liberating but if we all turned into rights—bearers with my rights clashing with your rights, we end up having to appeal to the courts to sort out our differences and that can become oppressive for everybody. next year, a tribunal will, for the first time, decide if veganism is a philosophical belief protected by law. the case could provide vegans with protection against discrimination in employment, education and the provision of goods and servicesm and those holding
and services and those holding other beliefs could receive similar legal protection. clive coleman, bbc news. in a moment the weather but first let's here's victoria derbyshire with what she's got coming up in her programme at 10:00am: good morning. join us at 10am with our audience here in birmingham eight days before one of the most significant votes in the history of our country takes place in the house of commons. as you know mps vote a week tomorrow on whether to accept or reject the prime minister's brexit deal. those mps who will be taking that momentous decision are your public servants. we will ask our audience, gathered here in this cash and carry in birmingham, and you, where ever you are around the uk, how do you want your mp to vote? send us an e—mail at victoria.bbc.co.uk.

whether you are cold, frosty start to tuesday but sunshine on offer to the day. temperatures in single figures and becomes milder but more u nsettled figures and becomes milder but more unsettled by wednesday. hello, this is bbc news. the headlines... a key un conference on climate change opens in poland with a warning that global warming poses a greater threat to humanity than ever before. pressure mounts on the government to publish its complete legal advice on theresa may's brexit withdrawal deal, as labour warns of a "constitutional crisis" if the information is not released in full. crisis on our high streets — figures compiled by bbc news suggest 40,000 jobs have been lost or put at risk in the retail sector this year. a vegan brings a landmark legal case against his former employer over claims he was sacked on the basis of his beliefs, which he says are akin to a religion. shock in spain as a far—right party wins seats in a regional election for the first time in decades.
time now for the morning briefing, where we bring you up to speed on the stories people are watching, reading and sharing. let's return to brexit now and the growing argument about the government's refusal to publish the full legal advice given by the attorney general. lord falconer, who was tony blair's lord chancellor at the time of the iraq war, has warned against withholding the full guidance. he was speaking on the today programme. there are occasions, and they happen infrequently, where if the state is about to embark on something, i think the public have the full right to know the full legal basis upon doing it. you referred to the iraq issue, the attorney—general of the day published a short summary of his advice, then three years later, the full advice became public, which raised huge questions about the summary. surely we must be transparent about the most important treaty of the last 40 years.
so, the public should know and i think the iraq experience indicates that without full transparency, you have suspicion and doubt and conspiracy theories. let's have it out there. parliament is due to vote on the government's brexit deal on 11th december, however there are suggestions that the vote could be delayed to allow the prime minister more time to seek concessions from the eu. the sun says the move was among options which have been discussed by the chief whips to avoid a defeat in the vote. a little sneaking suspicion i have is that before we get to the end of the week, she might end up cancelling the vote or postponing it a little while. and then going back to europe for another conversation. now, i don't know, stephen, weather you have any inside information on that. but that's something i think might happen, as we look at the numbers.
but today, the home secretary ruled out that option. this vote is taking place as planned, and it's obviously many mps are considering how they may or may not vote, then, but it's important to keep in mind the result of the referendum, what the british people wanted and what this deal delivers. lauder donors has tweeted... let's have a look at some of the most popular stories on our website.
the second most read story, something we have been featuring this morning, a story brought to us by our legal correspondent clive coleman. a tribunal is to be asked to the side with a beginners is a philosophical belief akin to a religion. this case is being brought by somebody who says he was sacked by somebody who says he was sacked by his employer, the league against cruel sports. the organisation says he was in fact dismissed for gross misconduct. story number five on the list — we are so happy, we thought it had gone. this is about a newly engaged couple who lost their ring
down a grate in new york. and they we re down a grate in new york. and they were in new york and he had just presented her with the ring which was a bit too big for her and she was a bit too big for her and she was walking along and she lost it down grate. after a big twitter campaign, they were reunited with the ring after the police found it. a very nice story there. scrolling down to the most watched videos, number three, michelle 0bama, down to the most watched videos, numberthree, michelle 0bama, due down to the most watched videos, number three, michelle 0bama, due to speak to schoolgirls at the royal festival hall in london today. and one of the most watched videos is of five uk schoolgirls explaining what she means to them. i was at one of these meetings that mrs 0bama held a few years ago with the girls at a school in east london and the warmth
and thrill of the girls in the audience watching mrs 0bama was really quite something to behold. let's have a look at this video. for me michelle 0bama is a role models. for me michelle 0bama is not only beautiful on the outside but she is beautiful on the inside as well because of everything she has achieved in her life and how far she has come. i believe michelle 0bama isa has come. i believe michelle 0bama is a legend. i also want to become a lawyer because i want to help people have a say and i want to give them a voice in a place like court. have a say and i want to give them a voice in a place like courtlj have a say and i want to give them a voice in a place like court. i want to be an actress, being an actress you have to express yourself and you have to be creative and she makes me feel that through being an actress i
can speak my mind and nobody can stop me from saying what i believe is right. my goal for life is to become a lawyer or a diplomat. because ijust feel like it represents me, i'm very strong and i feel like i've got a lot of things to say. and i want to get my point across to the world. she's showed people that you can get to where she is right now and it gives me hope in life that i can get as far as she could. she makes me feel as though i can be the best version of myself, i can be the best version of myself, i can do whatever i want if i put my mind to it and i can do whatever i want if i put my mind to itand i can can do whatever i want if i put my mind to it and i can achieve anything. that is it for today's morning briefing. the liverpool manager
jurgen klopp has apologised after his celebration went, shall we say, a little over the top when his side scored a very late winner against everton at anfield. that was one of many dramatic moments on a day of three derbies. adam wild wraps it all up for us. for a fixture that has seen so much drama down the decades, rarely has merseyside seen anything quite like this. it was a brilliant night, that is what football should be. the atmosphere in the stadium was really wow, really cool and everything — good. it was, it turned out, the perfect day to have the neighbours around. just when everton looked like they had outstayed their welcome at the home of their closest rivals, liverpool found something as incredible as it was bizarre. a goalkeeping error in the 96th minute and divock 0rigi sparking the kind of celebrations only a derby could deliver.
in north london, too, local rivalries run deep. spurs struggling to keep up with arsenal, a goal behind until eric dier squeezed in a header. the relief clearly visible, but so, too, the underlying animosity of the occasion. it had barely returned to a simmer before it bubbled over once more. spurs awarded a penalty, and whilst tempers raged, harry kane kept his cool. intensity, passion and plenty to admire. aubameyang's equaliser fitting of such a game. and when the neighbours are this close, it would take something special to keep them apart. amazingly, alexandre lacazette pulling arsenal back in front before the crowning glory, lucas torreira, a moment the red side of london will remember for long time. whilst amongst the nearest and dearest visiting chelsea, claudio ranieri. their former manager now in charge down the road at fulham. the welcome was warm, the hospitality soon ran out. the hospitality,
though, soon ran out. ruben loftus—cheek finally sending the visitors packing. 0n derby day, there was no place for sentiment. adam wild, bbc news. celtic have won every trophy on offer in scotland since brendan rodgers took over as manager — that's seven injust over two years. they added the scottish league cup to their tally with a 1—0 victory over aberdeen in the final at hampden park. ryan christie with the goal that won it for them. i take great pride, it feels great. but of course my happiness is more for the players and for the supporters. it was a really satisfying day for us. and like i say for the players, they deserve a huge amount of credit. in celtic‘s absence, rangers have moved to the top of the scottish premiership for the first time under steven gerrard, thanks to a 2—1victory at hearts. alfred morelos with the winner, and that after they'd been reduced to 10 men.
arsenal's100% start to the women's super league season is over. they were beaten 2—0 by manchester city, england international georgia stanway with both goals. city are now three points behind arsenal at the top of the table. there was a real sour note in that win for arsenal — and it features on all of today's back pages. the guardian shows pierre—emerick aubameyang looking towards the crowd in disgust after a banana skin was thrown towards him on the pitch. a tottenham fan has been arrested and the club say he will be banned. the mirror have a different shot and the headline "outrage", belowjurgen klopp and his pitch invasion, which they dub "outrageous". and the express also have the aubameyang shot, as well as tyson fury saying
the judge that scored his fight with deontay wilder in the american‘s favour should be sacked. tyson fury says the world knows who the real champion is, after his controversial draw with deontay wilder. a host of former boxers believed fury had won the fight, and his camp have demanded an investigation and a rematch. thejudges were split, one going for fury, one making it a tie, and one scoring it overwhelmingly in wilder's favour. i've never seen a worse decision in my life. i don't know what fight them judges are watching, the guy who gave it 115—111, he had me losing the first six rounds and i don't know what he was watching. but it is boxing, this is not the first time that has happened. i think that is as bad a decision as the first lennox lewis—holyfield fight but who
amito lennox lewis—holyfield fight but who am i to say, i am just a boxer, are not thejudges. in the run—up to the bbc sports personality of the year, damejessica ennis—hill has been talking to some of the headline—makers of 2018, and one of them was gareth southgate, after england's run to the semi—finals of the world cup. he told her that it still smarts. what were the emotions for you and the team at the end, obviously disappoint, until you had time to step back and reflect on what you'd achieved as a team? it was very painful to be so close to the world cup final. the disappointment will a lwa ys cup final. the disappointment will always be there until we go and win something. but the reaction from our supporters at the end, where we just saw this sea of england fans, we been on a brilliantjourney together, maybe we weren't quite ready to win collectively, myself as well as the players at that moment. and you can see more of that tomorrow night at 10.45 on bbc one in sports personality 2018: a great sporting year,
withjess ennis—hill meeting some of the headline makers of the year. she also talks to elise christie and tracey neville. and here's just some of what you can find on the bbc today — at 7.30 on bbc one, it's the draw for the third round of the fa cup. and on radio 5 live at 9.30, mike costello and steve bunce go through all the reaction to tyson fury‘s drawn heavyweight title fight with deontay wilder. and there's a lot of controversy in the world of sport today — so we thought we'd show you this. this is england test captain joe root and his now wife carrie, who got married on saturday. hopefully that's an antidote to all the stuff that's been going on over the stuff that's been going on over the weekend, nice note to end on, i think! back to you, rita, so!
the mayor of london sadiq khan has warned the number of met police officers will drop to its lowest level since 2002 unless hundreds of millions of pounds in new funding can be secured. the mayor's office claims as things stand, scotland yard is required to make a further £335 million of savings over the next three years. that's ten million more than previous forecasts. the mayor's call for more funding for police has been mirrored in other regions. i'm nowjoined by detective inspector warren hines, west midlands police federation spokesperson. thank you for adjoining us. what is the situation in the west midlands, we have had that morning from the mayor of london, what is it like where you are? well, i think sir, can is right to highlight the issue that they face in terms of police numbers in london. but in the west midlands, we are now in a situation where we have less police officers then we had in 1974 and you do not
need to be any kind of expert to know that that leaves us in a really, really difficult position when it comes to delivering the kind of service that nobody expects from modern policing. and is that because of budgetary cuts? it is. aside from london, london is catching up with where the rest of the country has been for quite some considerable time. budget cuts that we've been subjected to our brutal, really brutal. with lost so much experience and wejust brutal. with lost so much experience and we just can't do everything that is being expected of us. so, how does that translate into day—to—day policing, what are the changes? well, you've got people attempting to manage caseloads that are unmanageable, you've got people who are regularly having their rest days cancelled, regularly being told that they have got to stay on duty to deal with what we've got coming in. and that's having a really, really
adversary effect on office morale, officers' mental health. and really any civilised society needs a properly funded, properly functional, suitably motivated police force, that's the cornerstone of everything else, really. what, often says at times like this is that the cuts are made to back office staff, not front—line policing. —— what the government often says. how do you answer that? the evidential standard hasn't changed and nor should it ever change. i think that crime has changed insomuch as the complexity of it is increasing. we are now investigating far more it enabled offending, we've got a lot of serious sexual offending, child sexual exploitation and also the murders that we are seeing in west midlands police are far more complex now and there is a knock—on effect in how many staff you have got to deploy to those investigations and how you progress them. we haven't got the option to say, we're not
going to do it. so when theresa may famously said a few months ago that austerity is over, inevitably, all sorts of different sect has said, we need more money. how would you make your own case? i think what you have got to look at is the increase in violent crime. that needs an immediate injection of cash into policing in order to be able to deal with the short—term effects of that. longer term we need to look at how the other agencies interact with policing and stop young men particularly, who feel disadvantaged, getting involved in really serious crime. with got a lot of catching up to do, we've lost a lot of experience, we need to make policing attractive to people who wa nt to policing attractive to people who want to make it a career. but when we started losing our neighbourhood policing officers, we started losing the intelligence which is the life but policing. we can have a really serious than now and we haven't got the first idea who is responsible because that local is disappearing. good to talk to you panel thank you
very much. let's go back to poland, now, and the very important climate change conference that is officially starting today in the city of katowice. poland heavily relies on coal, and the government is refusing to reverse that — infact it has plans to start building a new coal mine next year. just down the road from where the climate change experts are meeting is the biggest coal company in the european union. 0ur science editor, david shukman went into the depths of it. we have now been equipped to go underground, with slightly weird looking clothes, which are designed not to produce a spark because the risk down below is of a methane exposure in. we are on our way down now just. it will take exposure in. we are on our way down nowjust. it will take 40 45 seconds
and apparently it is good luck to lift your helmet and say good luck. iam lift your helmet and say good luck. i am starting to feel the air pressure on my ears now. the next stop is climbing inside a pretty tiny little train and i can see if i can squeeze myself in here. it's not the most comfortable of rides, some of the journeys underground go on for 45 minutes because the mine sprawls so far. this one will a p pa re ntly sprawls so far. this one will apparently be another five minutes or so. that sound of rock cascading comes with the odd very loud crack, which is incredibly unsettling. when we say, does this matter, is it safe? they say, don't worry, it is just the rock working, as they put it. i
think that means of settling. it is not often i can say this but i am literally at the coal face now and just up ahead of me is where the drills are hacking into the coal seam and great chunks of coal are being brought down by conveyor, it is amazingly hot, 28—29d, noisy, a very hostile environment, partly because it is so dusty. but this is the reality of life for thousands of miners in poland. and because the coalmining industry is so important to the economy here, it looks set to last for decades, whatever climate scientists and environmental activists want to see happen. after activists want to see happen. after a couple of hours down here i'm sure the effects are starting to show. but what is important is that there are different types of coal. what they are after here is what is called coking coal which is used to make steel. the company which runs this place says that if there is a ban on coalmining, how is the world
going to make, for example, towers for wind turbines? it illustrates the many dilemmas surrounding this industry. well, that was quite an experience, particularly since the future of coal is being discussed at the conference just up the road in katowice. and in a move which has infuriated environmental groups, the owner of this mine is actually one of the official sponsors. thinks could get pretty interesting. but right now i'm off for a shower. police in new york say they have found a couple who lost an engagement ring down a drain — thanks to people sharing the story online. the man had proposed to his girlfriend on friday night but shortly afterwards, it all went downhill. richard forrest has the story. the couple searched for at least two
hours to no avail after their engagement ring slipped down a grate in times where in new york if they thought it was lost for ever. into new york's police. they opened up the covering and continued the search once the couple had gone. when it hadn't been retrieved that evening, these officers came back the next day and found it — a very lucky break. like finding a new in a haystack. we have been on plenty of these searches where we have come up with nothing unfortunately and luckily this one has a good ending to it. but they did not have the couple's details so the next challenge was to find them and reunite them with their ring. the nypd put out a twitter call to action asking new yorkers to help track the couple down. twitter worked its magic and the couple were found. the names arejohn and daniela and they were told the good news by a friend moments after
landing back in the uk. they say they are overjoyed and have promised they are overjoyed and have promised the police special mention on their big day. here is victoria derbyshire with what she has got coming up in her programme at ten o'clock. yes, we are here with our audience in birmingham, eight days before one of the most significant votes in the history of our country takes place in the house of commons. mps vote a week tomorrow on whether to accept or reject the prime minister's brexit steel. those mps who will be taking that momentous decision are your public servants. we will ask our audience gathered here in this cash—and—carry in birmingham, and you wherever you are around the uk, how do you want your mp to vote? sent as an e—mail, use the hashtag #victorialive and join us at ten o'clock. and don't forget, we will have more on full brexit debate this
afternoon, where the attorney—general, geoffrey clocks, will be publishing a reduced version of the legal advice over the brexit withdrawal deal the government under pressure to publish the full advice from labour and also from other political opponents are. now it is time for a look at the weather. we had a rather chilly start of the day across scotland and northern ireland but there were some clear spells and we have got some sunshine at the moment. this weather watcher photo comes from northern ireland. but it has not been dry and sunny everywhere. we have had some really heavy rain this morning working its way through wales and pushing eastwards at the moment towards leeds and into south yorkshire. that rain will continue to spread its way eastwards. eventually it will clear away from the midlands and the south—west of england, leaving some sunny spells. some sunshine this
afternoon across northern areas. a bit of a difference in the temperatures this afternoon, 7—8 in the north, 11—14 in the south. still quite mild. tonight that rain will clear away and then lengthy clear spells this evening and tonight. underneath those clear spells there is going to be a frost of a looping, particularly across scotland and northern parts of england. —— a frost developing. it should be a bright start to tuesday morning. staying largely sunny across northern areas, perhaps a bit chillier tomorrow. but later in the day, rain comes into the south—west and as we go through wednesday, it
is linked into this low pressure weather system which will continue to move northwards and eastwards. so, wednesday is looking quite wet across england and wales and northern ireland. it will turn to snow over the pennines and the southern uplands. elsewhere quite a cloudy and wet afternoon on wednesday. and then for the rest of the week, well, we stay fairly u nsu btle the week, well, we stay fairly unsubtle to. the weather systems coming in from the apprentice, and there is quite a deep area of low pressure coming in on friday. really quite strong winds expected on friday. —— coming in from the atlantic. friday on the mild side still. hello it's monday, it's 10:00am. i'm victoria derbyshire. good morning and welcome to birmingham. applause
