1:36 pm
brother was on someone's shoulders when i came onto the pitch and eve ryo ne when i came onto the pitch and everyone was applauding him, so he was loving the glory. the music hadn't started at glastonbury so it was the perfect time to get the game on. that's thousands and thousands of people watching, so it is unbelievable. ac milan have been banned from european competition next season, that's after breaking uefa's financial fair play rules. the club, which finished fifth in italy's serie a, will miss next season's europa league. any club which has overspent in a three—year period, breaking uefa rules, faces sanctions. they appealed successfully against the sanction last season. roma will take their place in the group stage and torino will now enter the qualifying round. england's cricketers will be hoping that south africa can beat sri lanka in todays cricket world cup match. sri lanka are one of three teams that can deny england a semifinal spot.

1:39 pm
since records began in france. this is 44.3 degrees centigrade. so that is 44.3 degrees centigrade. so that is just is 44.3 degrees centigrade. so that isjust coming into is 44.3 degrees centigrade. so that is just coming into us. is 44.3 degrees centigrade. so that isjust coming into us. the is 44.3 degrees centigrade. so that is just coming into us. the weather experts were predicting this would be the hottest day recorded in parts of france today and that is indeed what seems to have happen. 44.3 degrees. we will bring more on that and the impact those temperatures are having in france and other european countries, spain we have seen people dying of suspected heatstro ke seen people dying of suspected heatstroke and all the other ramifications of this heatwave. more on that later on the bbc news channel. meanwhile... police in greater manchester have reminded people against cooling off in lakes, rivers and reservoirs. it's after a 12—year—old girl drowned in the river irwell in bury. greater manchester police have called it a tragic incident. 0ur north of england correspondent, judith moritz, has the latest. we don't have a lot of information. they say that it was 7:55pm last
1:40 pm
night, that they got reports that there was this child, this 12—year—old girl in the river — the river irwell, which is right at the point where they got the calls right to the town centre in bury, north of manchester. right in the middle of the town. it was a hot evening, around 20 celsius in bury. police were called to that point in the river, they began to search, and the underwater search teams were brought in very quickly. sadly, they recovered the body of the 12—year—old child. the police say they don't think that there are no suspicious circumstances, they don't believe there is anything suspicious about this. but they have put a team of detectives on the case to look at what happened.
1:41 pm
they are supporting the child's family. as you said at the beginning, they are reminding people of the dangers of water in the area, that is the one bit of context that the police have given us today. greater manchester police saying that they want to remind everybody that swimming near or in lakes, rivers, reservoirs at this sort of time of year can bring its own dangers. they want to remind everybody of that and urge them not to do it. women's rights activists and pro—choice advocates have condemned the state of alabama for charging a woman with manslaughter after she lost her unborn baby in a shooting. 27—year—old marshaejones was involved in an altercation with another woman and was shot in the stomach — ending her five—month pregnancy. but police say she started the fight and therefore put her baby in danger. charges against the woman who shot her have been dismissed. the church of england has appointed its first black female bishop. rose hudson—wilkin will take over as the bishop of dover in november. born and raised injamaica, ms hudson—wilkin has served as chaplain to the queen and currently serves as the chaplain to the speaker
1:42 pm
of the house of commons. she has previously spoken out about the church's senior clergy needing to be more ethnically diverse. in the united states, the democratic party's leading presidential hopeful, joe biden, endured a tough time in a televised debate. nine fellow democrats also seeking the party's nomination took him to task on a series of key issues. in the second round of televised debates, mr biden was challenged on his age, as well as his record on race issues. gary 0'donoghue reports from miami. side by side, but in many ways poles apart politically. tonight saw four of the front runners take to the stage in this second nbc debate. the man who's dominated the race so far, 76—year—old former vice president to barack 0bama, joe biden, has fashioned himself as a centrist and the best candidate to beat donald trump. donald trump has put us in a horrible situation. we do have enormous income
1:43 pm
inequality and the one thing i agree on is, we can make massive cuts in the $1.6 trillion in tax loopholes out there and i would be going about eliminating donald trump's tax cuts for the wealthy. his closest challenger, self—styled democratic socialist, bernie sanders, is credited with reviving and mobilising a new left—wing progressive fervour in the party. and he was quick to attack those wealthy americans in the top 1%. and at a time when we have three people in this country earning more wealth than the bottom half of america, while 500,000 people are sleeping out on the streets today, we think it's time for change, real change. senator kamala harris has been in the top five front runners but she's not well known around the country. as her fellow democrats appeared to squabble over how to write off student loans, she showed her capacity to cut through.
1:44 pm
0k guys, you know what, america does not want to witness a food fight, they want to know how we are going to put food on their table. she also confronted joe biden directly on a controversial part of his political past. so—called ‘busing', which was an attempt to desegregate schools by moving black and white children across neighbourhoods to other schools. mr biden didn't support the policy at the time. it was hurtful to hear you talk about the reputations of two united states senators who built their reputations, their careers on segregation of race in this country. everything i've done in my career, i ran because of civil rights, i continue to think we have to make fundamental changes in civil rights and those civil rights, by the way, include not just only african—americans, but the lgbt community. at times, joe biden seemed a little rattled, put on the spot by several
1:45 pm
other candidates on his record and told he should pass on the torch to the next generation. joe biden was right when he said it was time to pass the torch to a new generation of americans 32 years ago. he's still right today. i'm still holding onto that torch. but he wasn't the only one who felt discomfort. the young 37—year—old gay mayor from indiana, pete buttigieg, has had to deal with the fallout of a police shooting of a black man ten days ago. he was asked why his city did not have more black officers? because i couldn't get it done. i am determined to bring about a day when a white person driving a vehicle and a black person driving a vehicle, when they see a police officer approaching, it feels the exact same thing. a feeling, not of fear, but of safety. in truth, the great clash between centrists and socialists didn't quite happen, but tonight's debate was a step up in energy from yesterday. so all 20 candidates have had
1:46 pm
their say and over the coming days, the polls will be scrutinised to see what impact these debates have had. none of the key five front runners have done themselves irreparable damage, but after tonight's performance, kamala harris will feel she is in serious contention for one of those top three spots. gary 0'donoghue, bbc news, in miami. when harry billinge appeared on the bbc on the 75th anniversary of the normandy landings earlier this month, he left many viewers moved. the 93—year—old d—day veteran has spent years raising money for the memorial unveiled that morning, he insisted however he was "no hero". since then his interview has reached more than 20 million people on social media, turning harry into a bit of a star. tim muffett caught with him at home in cornwall. don't say i'm a hero. i'm no hero. i was lucky. i'm here. all the heroes are dead, and i'll never forget them as long as i live.
1:47 pm
you are a star. fame has come late in harry's life. everybody, saw you on the telly, harry. it's all very overwhelming. my dad told me that. keep your head down. after he appeared on breakfast, harry's interview went viral on social media. it's reached more than 20 million people and counting. these are the letters you've been receiving from all over the world. france, belgium, from canada, america i've had. we were busting with pride when we saw you several times. you have done particularly well, raising all the money for the memorial. thanks indeed for your courage all those years ago. we all owe much to your generation. it touches me. makes me very humble to think that people think that.
1:48 pm
my daughter gave me this. she reckons i'm a hero but i doubt that. so this is a letter from the prime minister. yeah. she says, "yourfundraising efforts will ensure a lasting tribute to the brave men of the d—day landings and will serve to keep their memory alive." that gives me comfort. although millions have seen harry's interview, harry himself has not. harry, this is your appearance on breakfast, which you haven't seen it, have you? all i know is, normandy veterans love one another beyond the love of women. i'm very sorry, i'm a bit choked. you are absolutely entitled to. we are grateful to you. what's it like watching it back? choking. i liked that. harry had already raised £10,000 towards the normandy memorial, the first part of which was unveiled onjune the 6th but more money is needed to complete the project.
1:49 pm
the normandy memorial trust said harry's appearance led to a surge in donations. what has it been like since you appeared on television? wonderful. everybody is very kind to me. hi, harry. all right, my dear. how are you? very well. we live in northampton but i still saw your video. well, it's universal. i've been all over the world now. i've got more friends now than i've ever had before through the television and all this wonderful technology. harry billinge, d—day veteran, fundraiser, tv and social media star. in a moment we'll have all the business news, but first the headlines on bbc news... theresea may tells the russian president the salisbury nerve agent attack was a despicable act. the two leaders met at the g20 summit injapan, after president putin declared that
1:50 pm
liberalism is obsolete. france records its highest temperature since records began — 44.3 degrees. i'm ben bland with the business news. the designer of the imac, the ipod and the iphone is leaving apple. sirjony ive will set up his own venture called lovefrom. the designer, who was born in britain, said it was "a natural and gentle time to make this change." he said that lovefrom's first client would be apple. but it comes at a time when investors are worried about falling iphone sales. the danish billionaire family that controls the toy firm lego is buying merlin entertainments for £4.8 billion. it's the company that owns legoland as well as madame tussauds, the london eye, alton towers, and chessington world of adventures. merlin profits were hit by a drop in visitor numbers
1:51 pm
after a crash in 2015 at one of its alton towers rollercoasters. one of huawei's biggest rivals — nokia — has said the uk should be wary of using the chinese firm's equipment. the finnish company said huawei's telecoms kit had vulnerabilities that meant it posed a risk to 5g networks. it comes as the us is putting pressure on allies, including the uk, to bar the firm over security fears. the leaders of the 20 largest economies in the world, including theresa may, are all gathering in osaka, japan. the big economic story is the meeting between president trump of the us and president xi of china. that's due to happen tomorrow. they will discuss the growing trade war betwen the two countries, in which both are slapping higher and higher taxes on more and more of each others exports. if that continues, analysts say there will be a dramatic slow down in the global economy, which all of us will feel. karishma vaswani is our asia
1:52 pm
business correspondent, she's in osaka for us. why does it matter to us here in the uk whether or not the us and china achieve a breakthrough and resolve their trade war at the g20? to put it simply, when the two largest economies in the world are locked in a bitter battle over trade, it does affect the rest of us. the reason is, many of the companies who are sending their goods from china, making them in china, to the united states, they are not just chinese china, to the united states, they are notjust chinese companies, they are notjust chinese companies, they are globalfirms are notjust chinese companies, they are global firms and they have been hit by the tariffs donald trump has put on chinese goods coming out of china. asa put on chinese goods coming out of china. as a result, many of these countries, factories are not able to make business decisions going forward. that means nojobs are being created and no future investment is being made. that slows down the pace of economic activity
1:53 pm
and if there isn't a trade deal, as donald trump has said, he has been very clear, he is willing, he has threatened to go ahead and slap ta riffs threatened to go ahead and slap tariffs on threatened to go ahead and slap ta riffs on $325 threatened to go ahead and slap tariffs on $325 billion worth of chinese goods. that means effectively everything china makes and sells to the united states would have tariffs on it. china would no doubt retaliate. all of this just ends up throwing more uncertainty for companies that are operating in the global economy, slowing down economic activity as a whole. clearly, a lot of excitement as people are posing on the side behind you, keen to get on television. i just wonder what other big economic matters will be discussed? when leaders of the g20 countries come together at a summit like this, as you rightly point out, lots of
1:54 pm
excitement for people, taking photographs at an event like this, but at the same time, some really big issues are on the table. things like the future of multilateralism, a big word, but certainly an idea thatis a big word, but certainly an idea that is very much at the heart of what this organisation does. remember the g20 was formed in the aftermath of the asian financial crisis, a recognition that when one country gets hurt, even if it is in far—flung south—east asia, the rest of the world suffers too. it is the ideology that many member states feel is a threat, because of protectionist moves, because of the trade warfor protectionist moves, because of the trade war for instance and that is what they are trying to protect. 0k, thanks very much. go and get a photo by the sign as well, before they ta ke by the sign as well, before they take it away. in other business stories we've been following: boots has confirmed plans to close 200 stores in the uk as part of what it calls a "store optimisation process". it says many of these stores are loss making and two thirds are in walking distance of another

1:57 pm
this region of brazil is rich in dinosaur remains. now there is plenty of lush vegetation but 90 million years ago this area was all desert. careful analysis of the creature's bones and the unique nature of its claws told scientists this was something different. the hope is this discovery will prompt fresh research and new discoveries. may be other previously unknown dinosaurs will be unearthed. tim allman, bbc news. now it's time for a look at the weather with mel coles. the heat is on. temperature is not doing as well out towards the eastern half of the uk but we will get to see those temperatures rise tomorrow. we have cooler air waiting

eastern half of the uk. this is the picture across europe. you can see central and western areas continuing to see those temperatures exceed 40 celsius throughout this weekend. we are going to see those supercharged ties but we will see temperatures get a significant boost. that is down towards the far south—east, where we could see temperatures reach highs of 34 celsius. more cloud for northern ireland and western scotland and here temperatures will be pegged back and one or two showers could work their way in but it will feel humid, critically down towards the far south and the ease. all change in the overnight period, a cold front sweeps of the heat and humidity out of the way. so sunday will feel much fresher. we've also got more cloud and outbreaks of rain putting its way into northern ireland and western scotland. it could be heavy and thundery. elsewhere, a westerly flow, a fresh feel and spells of sunshine and feeling quite warm.
