11:33 pm
hello. this is bbc news with vicki young. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow morning's papers in a moment. first, the headlines: political leaders have attended lyra mckee's funeral at st anne's cathedral in belfast, where a priest received a standing ovation when he asked the congregation why it took her death to unite politicians. i dare to hope that lyra's murder on holy thursday evening can be the doorway to a new beginning. the sri lankan government has admitted major lapses in failing to pass on intelligence that could have prevented the suicide bombings on easter sunday, which killed 359 people. parliament heard that an indian intelligence warning from the beginning of the month about the
11:34 pm
attacks was not properly shared by the authorities. iran's foreign minister says nazanin zaghari—ratcliffe could be released from jail in a prisoner swap with iranians detained by the us. huawei, the chinese telecoms giant, welcomes reports that the government will let it help build britain's 5g data network. in football, manchester city have got one step closer to a second successive premier league title, with a convincing derby victory over manchester united at old trafford. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are former fleet street editor, eve pollard, and writer and broadcaster, christina patterson.
11:35 pm
now, a lot of tomorrow's front pages are in. and many of them feature the funeral of murdered irishjournalist lyra mckee, who was shot whilst covering rioting in londonderry on the 21st anniversary of the good friday peace agreement. the belfast telegraph focuses on father martin magill‘s speech, he lead the service. he challenged political leaders, including theresa may and leo varadkar, and criticised them for not coming together sooner to resolve northern ireland's political tensions. the guardian's lead story claims 0.5 million uk children aged under 10 are at risk of measles because they are not vaccinated. the telegraph headlines the story about chinese tech giant huawei, where the uk has agreed to let the company to help build its 5g mobile phone network. a move which was highly criticised by the united states. the paper says a us security agent compared the the deal to "giving
11:36 pm
beijing a loaded gun". the times says the huawei deal has caused "outrage amongst spy chiefs". it reports that heads of m15 were said to be "furious" at theresa may's decision. "ban your toddler from tv and ipads" is the headline of the daily mail. it reports that children aged under two should not be allowed to watch screens, as un experts advise it could be dangerous. and from one generation to another, the i talks about a report which suggested elderly people should stop getting winter fuel payments, a free tv licence and bus pass. the daily express gives more detail on that story, saying the proposed cuts to the elderly are to help the younger generation and make a "fairer society". let's start with the story which has dominated all day, which is the funeral of lyra mckee. the belfast
11:37 pm
telegraph he is saying let lyra mckee's murder be a doorway to a new beginning and really, the priest and his words?, that challenge to the politician sitting in front of him, it was quite a moment that standing ovation. it was amazing because he just said why did it take the murder ofa just said why did it take the murder of a 29—year—old woman who had her whole life ahead of her to get people like theresa may sitting next to leo varadkar and of course, the dup sitting next to the absolute opposite. what is interesting is we do know politicians do, but because they were sat together so closely in one picture on your screen, you could see all of them, it showed how scary this is, this new ira, which is already murdered one person and of course, journalists involved in reporters without borders, journalists are never been more at
11:38 pm
risk, more journalists journalists are never been more at risk, morejournalists had been shot or imprisoned this year than any other year and maybe as he says, let lyra's murder be a doorway to a new beginning. maybe something could happen in northern ireland. it will be interesting to see in the next two or three weeks if there are any moves to extend that good friday agreement goodwill, which there has been. when the father, interviewed him earlier, he said that he felt they had been a feeling that the community wanted politicians to try and get together instalment to try and get together instalment to try and break the impasse and get power—sharing backup and running. when lyra was murdered on friday, invisibly devastating moment and i think think the community was rocked, actually, really, really rocked, actually, really, really rocked to its foundations and i would not be at all surprised if something did shift as a result. i think she is such a, she was clearly such an incredibly talented,
11:39 pm
passionate woman and she grew up gay in northern ireland, it is no easy feat, particularly when you have people like arlene foster breathing down your neck and wanting to deprive you of any equality or right or abortion, if you are a woman, or kind of any of the things that might go with a modern, liberal, western culture. so lyra spoke out very, very bravely about the constraints that she had faced and to be murdered by, we do not know who, but we do know that a lot of very adrift young men from very deprived backgrounds have got involved in the so—called new ira, presumably because they have not got very much else going on in their lives and they are being brainwashed by sentimental old men who also did not have a much going on in their lives except a cause. but it was a tragedy and good friday agreement, which took years and years and years of
11:40 pm
effort, from john major initially and tony blairand effort, from john major initially and tony blair and jonathan powell and tony blair and jonathan powell and all kinds of, it has been put in jeopardy by brexit and one of the things that makes me very angry, and lam sure things that makes me very angry, and i am sure the people in this photo and in northern ireland, a million times angrier, is the politicians did not even seem to think about northern ireland when they made their wild promises about what brexit would do for the united kingdom. they did not even think about the fact that there there was peace that had not been there before and that this would automatically mean that either there was going to be hard border or there was going to have to be some kind of agreement that would allow a country that was still in the eu to have no water with a country that was not in the eu. john major and tony blair went to the border. but it did not feature heavily, actually, did it? —— border. feature heavily, actually, did it? -- border. of course, you're quite right. when we were discussing brexit, when we were voting, nobody raised northern ireland at all.|j
11:41 pm
wrote raised northern ireland at all.” wrote a piece straight after the referendum saying 0k, wrote a piece straight after the referendum saying ok, this looks like the end of the united kingdom because nicola sturgeon is today talking about having another referendum goblin. we do not know what is going to happen with northern ireland, we do not know what is going to happen in britain, the fact is that people did not think about this, just as they did not think about the trade deals, they did not think about medical research, nuclear research, intelligence, security, policing, they did not think about any of this it wasjust a they did not think about any of this it was just a catastrophic error of moral dereliction actually that has led us to the state we're in and people are dying. but referendum. that's a spring in the guardian because it is the same story in the guardian. -- referendum. it is
11:42 pm
interesting because you have the people who are teenagers, who was stopped from going out, stop them having a normal life because of the ira, good friday agreement, they are now the grown—ups and they will think i do not want to sit there and wonder if my child will come home safe. the thing about lyra mckee is they said that she was brought up in peace. she is one of those he does not remember those terrible things that seems to be a symbol of bringing people together, which was the point today of those words by the point today of those words by the priest and yeah, a very emotional day for all of them. and staying with the guardian, but a different story there. measles, 0.5 million uk children at risk of measles after missing vaccinations. of course, nevermind here by the chief executive of nhs england, simon stevens, to remind people these are killer diseases and just because they have not been around for a while, it feels like people might have gotten them. and this is
11:43 pm
the united nations saying how many people all over the world, it has caused ructions in places like new york. it is somehow this current sort of fashion thing against science or something, because he you killer diseases that killed children in victorian london and all the best of it and people are not vaccinating their children. there is this conspiracy that you see on twitter and social media that it will do your children harm and it is sort of almost ancient hippie sort of belief that you should not touch your children with anything to do with science, that they should just go up three and wild and it will be all right. yes, it has become a negative thing. andrew wakefield, of course that report which i remember reading it and being gobsmacked, that was children he had basted on. and yet, there are lots of parents not vaccinating their children. but he had based it on. notjust in the uk,
11:44 pm
it is internationally now, in the us, he has got celebrity girlfriend and a huge following. and it is about the damage it can do. when he did his research, social media was barely in existence. social media was not responsible for this phenomenon, but the fact is that people who choose not to vaccinate their children, they are putting other people at huge harm, they are risking the lives of people. it is an unbelievably selfish thing to do. what do you think about school saying your child can't come to school? i think it is the only way you're going to battle this because if the school say and if you think your child is going to sit next to a child was not been vaccinated, you would want to say i want my child to sit as far away as possible. and i think it is a normal, sensible reaction. i think the trouble is that certain vaccination and then
11:45 pm
problems with children, parents have put those two together. and there are more and more of them and they are more and more of them and they are combining them. absolutely, and they are never thinking it could be my family, it could be genetic, it could be all sorts of other things, they are thinking it is a vaccine. it is very easy to blame vaccination. because you see the possibility of an illness or something materialising at the same time as you get that. measles cases have reached the highest level and newark for 20 years and as he said, because an emergency to be declared in new york city. —— highest level for 20 years. let's move on to the new york times and the shillington story here and they are talking here obviously more about the victims and the terrible things that have happened, people that things have seen “— happened, people that things have seen —— things that people have seen there. i think that was the most striking thing, it was incredibly well organised, they have managed obviously successfully, in their
11:46 pm
terms, get these bombs to go off and kill so many people. we saw news today that some bombers we re we saw news today that some bombers were working in a factory. india sent names of churches and places and this information never got to the right and or was never acted upon. 0nce the right and or was never acted upon. once again we find that one of the bombers has lived in this country, well educated. ithink the bombers has lived in this country, well educated. i think we need to rethink what it is they want. they want us to live in their way of life... i don't even think - i think they do — but i think it is the same as the ira, ideology that completely distorts your worldview so you think you can do literally
11:47 pm
everything because you are right and everybody else is wrong. this case manifests in different cultures and different histories... a woman who was pregnant, the wife of one of these men, actually blew up herself and her children. the idea of that is so far away from the western idea of nurturing your children. that is a terrifying new dimension of isis. muslims would say that family and peaceis muslims would say that family and peace is part of their religion, it is not just a peace is part of their religion, it is notjust a western thing, and thatis is notjust a western thing, and that is what is so difficult for them because they feel they will be targeted. we will have to move on. staying with the times, this is the huawei briefing. this has come out
11:48 pm
ofa huawei briefing. this has come out of a security briefing so cabinet is reading out what is going on as it happens. this is a major problem. this is shocking, actually. for there to be a leak from the national security council meeting from which there has never been a leak before so there has never been a leak before so security chiefs are understandably furious but also very worried because this is enormous... this is stuff that will annoy the americans and our allies. when we we re americans and our allies. when we were talking about this earlier, it looked as though politicians who we re looked as though politicians who were standing against that were furious because they thought this would upset the spatial relationship but actually it sounds from this account much more cynical than that. it is about looking tough on
11:49 pm
security against theresa may as people are strutting up and down in the potential leadership... the problem that you have now with the prime minister ‘s that she is being moved on and moved out. you have to be in office and in power and this could rise again. this awful leadership — phone leadership — contest will go on until she resigns. —— faux. we are living through a national crisis. we have almost been able to forget about it for the last few days. thinking it was all sunshine and it was all a horrific nightmare but it is still there and the implications are terrifying, the implications of no deal and what shocks me is these are
11:50 pm
meant to be putting the country first. the seven principles of public life and if you are in any public life and if you are in any public office you are meant to put the public interest before your own. all of these people are thinking about their careers. we do not know lea k about their careers. we do not know leak has come from... it appears in a lot of their behaviour that they are putting themselves first.l story about president putin and ukraine. this is interesting, last week, this actor playing the president, who is a comedian, vladimir zelensky — and vladimir putin cannot resist him. there are certain areas in ukraine that are very pro—russian. you can get a
11:51 pm
russian passport as well, if you wa nt russian passport as well, if you want and of course you cannot have two passwords in the ukraine so this is causing trouble. this guy is causing trouble before he even gets there. that is not like president putin! he cannot resist it. i think tomorrow he is about to sit down with kim jong—un so it is kind of psychopath reunited. we will see what emerges, won't we. because i looked at kim jong—un and i thought, iam not looked at kim jong—un and i thought, i am not sure you know why you are here. he got in his armoured train. where they keep wiping the windows. again it is to antagonise donald
11:52 pm
trump. and possibly china. again, what is frightening is we are living through the era of the brutal strongman. what happened or did not happen in relation to the trump campaign, we know that russia tried to interfere, we know that trump thinks he was exonerated — i do not thinks he was exonerated — i do not think that was in the robert mueller report — but we know donald trump was very attracted to vladimir putin — maybe sexually because it does love to strut around without his top honour... we have run out of time. -- his honour... we have run out of time. —— his top on. that's it for the papers tonight. don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website. it's all there for you seven days a week at and if you miss the programme any evening, you can watch it later
11:53 pm
on bbc iplayer. thank you. goodbye. hello i'm sarah mulkerrins at the bbc sport centre. manchester city are back on top of the premier league table tonight. they are one point clear of liverpool after a 2—0 derby win over manchester united. our sports editor dan roan was at old trafford and has this report. with the finale to a feeling season, this was a derby with a twist. for many manchester united fans it felt like a no—win situation. winning and giving liverpool the advantage. lose and instead there noisy neighbour will be on course for another try. united desperately needed to restore
11:54 pm
some pride. marcus rashford causing problems. david geyer denying. ——de gea. then the lead manchester city wanted. a golden chance blown to equalise before the substitute found himself in acres of space to extend the lead. the significance of the moment not lost on the manager and de gea all too aware he should have done better. city back on top with what could prove a decisive win. a dream of retaining the title within touching distance. in the first half we lost some balls in the middle.
11:55 pm
the best chances we did in the first half. but then in the second half we made an incredible one. this is how the top of the table looks with three games to go — city with it all in their own hands now are one point clear of liverpool in second. those remaining fixtures — city face burnley, leicester and brighton. while liverpool face huddersfield, newcastle and wolves. manchester united stay 6th, one place below arsenal, who their missed out on moving into the top four tonight — they were outclassed by wolves at molineaux, beaten 3—1. a win would have seen them move ahead of chelsea but three first half goals from the hosts put paid to their hopes. rueben neves, matt doherty and diogojota all finding the net — sokratis did pull one back for the gunners. wolves move up to 7th andy murray could be back in action on court later this summer, according to his motherjudy.
11:56 pm
murray said in march he was pain—free after hip surgery but that his chances of playing singles at wimbledon this year were "less than 50 per cent". butjudy murray thinks there are signs that he's improving. well, he is almost three months past his surgery so he was told not to do any impact work which basically means running around the cot and hitting the ball for three months but he has been back hitting the ball against the wall, hitting from a static position so it is still early days and we will wait and see how he does but i think he is cautiously optimistic about getting back onto the match court perhaps at some point over the summer. mark allen is the latest seed to be knocked out of the world snooker championship
11:57 pm
by china's zhou yuelong. the world number six from northern ireland trailed 7—2 overnight and quickly fell 9—2 behind before winning five straight frames, but the world number 35 edged a scrappy frame 17 to progress to the next round. that's all the sport for now. goodnight. first we are off to mozambique where the weather looks nasty. it could be another weather—related disaster, this cyclone picking up strength at the moment and making landfall through thursday afternoon. five days worth of data and you can see the big problem, want it makes la ndfall the big problem, want it makes landfall it just the big problem, want it makes landfall itjust does not move. that will cause coastal inundation. it looks like we're looking at further devastating floods, i'm afraid, for
