here's susan powell for once, for wimbledon fortnight, the weather has been well behaved. a lot of sunshine first thing today. this is a picture from herefordshire earlier. you can see it is looking glorious in the sunshine. the light flat as we look at cumbria. the north and west had more cloud and now we are seeing north and west had more cloud and now we are seeing it filling in elsewhere but fairweather cloud with a lot of dry weather to come. cloudy skies across cumbria and you can see how the cloud has bubbled up further south. i think we will see a little bit more cloud across wimbledon this afternoon, perhaps the odd light shower in northern and western scotland. a notable breeze across scotla nd scotland. a notable breeze across scotland this afternoon with top temperatures from the high teens in the north, up to 22 further south.
1:31 pm
this fair weather thanks to high pressure that keeps things quiet overnight and skies will clear for many. some fog perhaps across east anglia first thing on wednesday. quite fresh in southern scotland and far north of england and rural wales first thing on wednesday. we got down to three degrees in parts last night. wednesday dawns with sunshine and more sunshine to come. thicker cloud to the north—west will bring more rainfall to the highlands and the western isles i think. for wimbledon, high pressure is in place in the south of the uk, keeping the story fine with sunshine. perhaps more cloud like today building as the hours go by. change on thursday with high pressure to the south. this front to the north tucks into scotla nd this front to the north tucks into scotland and it could mean business
1:32 pm
for the north—west, perhaps an inch of rain in some areas. a lot of that taken out of rain in some areas. a lot of that ta ken out by of rain in some areas. a lot of that taken out by the grampians. showers further east. windy across the north of the uk. temperatures struggling here but possibly the hottest day of the week further south with 25 in london. we could see similar temperatures to the south on friday. further north, the front sync south. not much rainfall as it passes through but we are into fresher air by the time we get to the weekend. friday, some cloud and perhaps showers making their way south and for the weekend, high pressure and a lot of fair weather but what a contrast to last weekend when it was 34 at contrast to last weekend when it was 3a at heathrow. for london i think we are talking 22 degrees. for many more comfortable outlook. a reminder of our main story this lunchtime. the chinese government has condemned the protests in hong kong
1:33 pm
as an ‘undisguised challenge‘ to its rule by ‘violent offenders‘. that‘s all from the bbc news at one. it‘s goodbye from me and on bbc one we nowjoin the bbc‘s news teams where you are. a couple of matches have just finished at wimbledon, two good matches as well. absolutely. we needed to british people were through on day one and we have two more three on day two of those in action today a very special guest as well. the duchess of cambridge, who was in attendance, meeting some of those brits, the likes ofjohanna kaunda and harriet
1:34 pm
dart, invite, she was courtside for her match was bringing a little extra pressure as she took her place courtside. the good news, it obviously helps, harriet dart making her way through to the second round, beating christina make hale of the united states. she came to having lost the first set for— six but took the next set to progress into the second round, which is where her purse performance at a wimbledon championships. also there is dan eva ns. championships. also there is dan evans. we are just seeing harriet dart progress here. a great result for her. there is her best performance at wimbledon, her best performance at wimbledon, her best performance at wimbledon, her best performance at a grand slam. dan eva ns, performance at a grand slam. dan evans, playing on court 18just behind me, against his argentinian opponent, came through in straight sets, making it for british people into the second round. dan evans having surged up the rankings, having surged up the rankings, having made that return from a drugs ban last year. good news as well,
1:35 pm
potentially, forjames ward, in action. he is two sets— one up at the moment. we could see another brit progressing in what is a bumper day of brits in action before the likes of roger federer and ralph and adele in action. the defending champion in the women‘s singles is currently playing on the centre court. it is customary for her to open busy of the main show on data. more from john watson at wimbledon throughout the day. but a huge night in lyon for england who take on the usa in the semifinal of the women‘s world cup. phil neville says reaching the last four should not be considered an achievement and only by winning the tournament would theircampaign bea by winning the tournament would their campaign be a success. sarah, we hear so much about how great this usa side is, how big a gulf is their inability between them in england? i think it is certainly getting closer between these two sides. in six hours‘ time, we will find out
1:36 pm
when the usa, the defending champions, kick—off against england. we know that the usa are three times champions. they‘re looking to make it four. england are looking to make their first world cup final. they know that heartbreak of what going out ina know that heartbreak of what going out in a semifinal feels like, because four years ago, in canada, the exited at that stage. then, at the exited at that stage. then, at the euros two years ago they also exited then. the england team and players have been using that emotion and saying that they do not want to feel like that again denied. it will bea feel like that again denied. it will be a tall order but, whether this usa side, theyjust refuse to lose. that might feel like that again tonight. there have been some concerns potentially about the defence and when you look at ellen white, currently level with the american defenders on —— american strikers on five goals, that could cause that usa defence some upset. we will have to see if england can
1:37 pm
finally bridge that gap. elsewhere, manchester united are stepping up their efforts to strengthen their defence. they made a £70 million bid for lesser‘s carrie maguire, and over which is understood to fall short of his valuation. there is also attracting interest from manchester city but signed a five—year contract with leicester last september. india need to enter data confirm their place in the semifinals. they‘re having a good day against bangladesh. a dominant century set the tone for their innings. court just a few balls later the. the captain has just lost his wicket to india, on fora captain has just lost his wicket to india, on for a very good score. currently 261—4. they are into the final ten overs. and some potentially worrying news for england, with fast bowlerjames anderson most damning first to leave the field while playing for lancashire against durham. he had to leave the field at the ashes —— the field in the ashes starts on the ist of august.
1:38 pm
it has just been confirmed that mark cavendish will not ride in the tour de france this year for the first time since 2007, and you can find more on that and all of the other stories on the bbc sport website. we will have more for you later. well let‘s take you back to one of oui’ well let‘s take you back to one of our main stories, the two conservative candidates vying to become the latest by minister had been taking part in a hustings event in belfast. they were both australia would solve power—sharing stormont and here is what they had to say. well, i think the lesson of that historic achievement back in 1998 is that the only way to do this is with the personal involvement of the prime minister. we need to have a prime minister. we need to have a prime minister. we need to have a prime minister who is prepared to put in the time to really make this happen. theresa may has been very committed to northern ireland and do
1:39 pm
the union, but i give you this commitment, that i do is pray minister will put any time personally to get that assembly back up personally to get that assembly back up and running. i think both sides need to understand that personal commitment from number ten. need to understand that personal commitment from number tenlj need to understand that personal commitment from number ten. i think that they have the... i will do whatever i can personally to energise and directly talks and do try to bring people together, but i think that what everybody needs to do is to recognise that it is the citizens and the voters of northern ireland who are losing out as a result of this failure to get together. i hope they will get on with it. well, the two leadership candidates we re well, the two leadership candidates were also asked how they would deal with the question of the irish backstop. it is the most controversial part of the deal theresa may negotiated with the european union. a position of last resort to prevent any new checks or controls on the irish border after brexit. this is what the two candidates had to say on that.|j brexit. this is what the two candidates had to say on that. i was one of the people who argued against
1:40 pm
accepting that backstop in cabinet, but i think it is important that the prime minister has a loyal foreign secretary, so i get this discussions private. that has to change, and we have defined a different solution. it will a technology— led solution, what the germans call an invisible border. we are rapidly understanding the potential of technology now and i think the work done by nicky morgan and greg hands in the alternative arrangements commission is the basis of the solution. the solution must be very old uk to come out in its entirety from the eu. —— must be for the whole uk to find the solutions were frictionally strayed across the border in the context of the free trade deal michelle bernier and others have said that those solutions are there. indeed, they said that they would not impose a ha rd said that they would not impose a hard border themselves. they are quite right. ithink hard border themselves. they are quite right. i think it would be lu na cy quite right. i think it would be lunacy to do so. boris johnson and jeremy hunt at the latest tory party
1:41 pm
leadership hustings in belfast. the leaders of the european union‘s member states will meet for a third day of talks to try to break a deadlock over who should fill the blog‘s topjobs. the main bone of contention as it should be the successor to the european union president, jean—claude juncker. still talking business, with little time for niceties this morning, with fatigue and frustration setting in for eu leaders as they struggle to decide on europe‘s top jobs. for eu leaders as they struggle to decide on europe‘s topjobs. three days for negotiations, still no white smoke. this has become a well worn red carpet over the past for days the leaders have spent 17 hours inside this building, arguing, negotiating for who they want, the manor woman who will help shape the eu for the next five years. they have been struck. unlike brexit, we re have been struck. unlike brexit, were resort the unity of 27, suddenly, that unity is dissipating. i believe it is day three, and what
1:42 pm
is clear is that the approach taken so far is not producing the results. we are to work very hard today in order to find the best person for the jobjobs. have you been ignored in the process? we will see. what is happening here is a political power struggle. leaders need to agree on five posts, he replaces young cult younger as head of the european commission, the next president of the european council, the next president of the european parliament, the foreign affairs chief and the next head of the european central bank. achieving gender balance is important as well. we cannotjust gender balance is important as well. we cannot just speak about ability and gender balance, we must also do it when we have the opportunity. this is today? yes, yes, yes. skill lessons about relationships we compulsory in all schools in england from next year. —— school lessons. the inclusion is already proved
1:43 pm
controversial, resulting in protests and head teachers being threatened. our correspondence has been to one skilled defended with some of these lessons could be like. i would have been pretending that was just long hair. yeah, you would have been. i think i did think there was something slightly wrong with me. remember the little green dress, the same as that as well. i was ashamed of who i was, a little bit. do you think so? yeah. just felt a little bit lonely. olly pike is an author and illustrator. his stories normalising gay relationships are used in schools across the country. "i wish to marry thomas." "what?" said the king. at this primary school in kent, olly‘s story prince henry is being used in a lesson about equality. they watched a young couple celebrate their love by wedding each other. they‘d put it off long enough. on one side we have the words "lesbian", "gay", "bisexual", "transgender" and " heterosexual" . .. year five students — nine— and ten—year—olds — are having a workshop lead by the charity diversity rolemodels,
1:44 pm
about different kinds of relationships and prejudice. if you've heard that phrase, "that's so gay", here at oakfield primary, i want you to put your hand up. some people say, "oh, that‘s so gay," but i really think they say that for an insult. who's in this picture? everyone's family is different, and you have to treat everyone with equality — it doesn't matter if they are lesbian or gay. and then, crack! out came their very own baby. the five— and 6—year—olds in year1 are using a story about a penguin to learn about different types of families. tango was the very first penguin in the zoo to have two daddies. it doesn't matter if it's a girland a girl, girl and a boy or a boy and a boy, and they get married, and, then, yeah. some politicians have said parents
1:45 pm
should be able to remove their child from classes like this, and in birmingham, there have been angry protests. the head teacher here, mr radcliffe, is a married gay man with four adopted children. i think it‘s about five—year—olds understanding that within their class, there are going to be 30 children with all sorts of different families. my own daughter goes to a school — she has two dads. i wouldn‘t be having this discussion about teaching your child to swim. i don‘t think we should be having this discussion about teaching every child about differences within our society. olly is convinced if lgbt classes had happened when he was at school, his life would have been dramatically better. we've seen statistics from stonewall about the amount of children and young people that are attempting to take their own life because they're being bullied for being lgbt. this isn't just about teaching, it's about saving lives potentially, and that's why it's crucial. age—appropriate lgbt
1:46 pm

1:48 pm
behind it? well, the bbc has been given exclusive access and tonight begins a tv series giving us a peek behind the scenes at the bank of england. let‘s ta ke england. let‘s take a look. the value of the gold bar is determined by its weight. so, if you take this bar here, it weighs about 12.5 kilograms. that is worth £375,000. that could pay for a house for somebody, or maybe a week‘s salary for a premier league footballer. some footballers! rug became —— rob mccabe was the documentary‘s director and hejoins mccabe was the documentary‘s director and he joins us mccabe was the documentary‘s director and hejoins us never stopped tailors more what you‘re aiming to achieve with this series. the bankers are full of amazing, jaw—dropping contents, as you saw with the goal there. there is the hundred and 25 years of incredible history. there is a huge swathe of amazingly important decision that it
1:49 pm
makes, that affects all of life. what we wanted to do is let the lead to demystify it and show the kind of fantastic operations, decisions and responsibilities that it has. was it difficult getting all that access that he managed to get? it took time to build a relationship with the bank and a relationship of trust, but the access was fantastic. one of the most challenging things was the unique physical challenges of filming ina unique physical challenges of filming in a bank. it is full of physical security, lots of rules and regulations about things that cannot be shown in terms of the bolts and saves. so, finding a way of working around that and still showing was challenging. —— vaults and safes. we found a way of doing that. what was the most surprising thing that you learned during your time there? interestingly, the gold was amazing but not so surprising as the existence of a banknote which the bank has in its vaults called a
1:50 pm
titan, which is worth £100 million it was simply astonishing. i did not even know about it. beyond tangible, physical stuff, what was interesting about the bank was just the way in which it really worked hard, and often battled to make its decisions around things such as interest rates or analysing brexit. to explain that to the outside world, without being criticised for coming under attack from the politicians or the press. that was a fascinating thing to look at had responsibilities to try to guide the economy but hugely sensitive to the kind of reaction is that it faced when it did that. you talk about demystifying the whole place and the way it works. you had to cover some pretty obscure and difficult to grasp economic concepts, did you not? how did you go about doing that and simple vying it for the audience? first of all, we did not want to be... i mean,
1:51 pm
people nor phrases like interest rates and impatient, but we thought we need to first of all be brave enough to try to explain that a bit further. crucially, using the voices of the experts at the bank, some fantastic explainer is. some fantastic explainer is. some fantastic processes at the bank through which people actually try to work—out their sister. not just high—level meetings, but tens, testing discussions around which people are really put on the firing line by the governor and others to try to work at what is going on in the economy. we tried to combine those with those very real events to create a sense of tension and jeopardy. what really helped was focusing on very particular decisions. the first programme looked particularly at one interest rate decision, and the second focuses on the bank's analysis of a no—deal brexit. by looking at, focusing on the specifics, we felt we could really expand and try to explain the bigger picture. thank
1:52 pm
