10:02 pm
phil neville at the coach is speaking, let'sjust listen in. she would do it that the way that she does, she will look forward to getting back to the hotel, she be upset and disappointed, but has been phenomenal and no blame should be attached to her. there is a bronze medal still to be played for, going into that match. that is football, thatis into that match. that is football, that is support and you've got to keep picking yourself up and we have a big game now on saturday, i have lost track of days. it will go again and will win that game. this team never gave up,. this is just one more week that we can add onto, it isjust incredible and she isa onto, it isjust incredible and she is a good player of the match, she
10:03 pm
saved us. she saved our buts today. this is such a great game for us and we made it to the final. how did that save change the momentum of this match? it was around the time marie knew we had to buckle down, we knew that they like that one touch to the ball and we just had to stick to the ball and we just had to stick to our defence and we did that quite well. you're heading to the world cup final, how priority of this team? so proud! every player stepped up team? so proud! every player stepped up tonight, we all came in, it was incredible expect us to see these players step up! we showed that tonight. would you say this is the best birthday ever?|j tonight. would you say this is the best birthday ever? i would say so. how do you beat this? yeah.
10:04 pm
scoring the second goal after 31 minutes. just remind you, if you joined us, england have been beaten 2-1, joined us, england have been beaten 2—1, they are now going through to the final. this is the scene in battersea. our correspondent, ben ando is at a fanszone in battersea tell us how fans have reacted to tonight's result. the same sentiment here, there was certainly a huge joy towards the end of that second half when they gave england that penalty after the penalty box and when that was missed, i think that was the moment a lot of people figured that was it and ironically, once again, it is penalties that do for england albeit not in the usual way, but
10:05 pm
during the match. that could have been an equaliser and certainly people thought that england played better, give a better account of themselves and that second half, but i think the consensus, even among the most senior parties, the usa where the better side and it was whether england could do something in those reserves, a fortitude of strength and they came really close and the fancier disc felt that this wasn't quite enough. var, playing a prominent role in this second half. this is something that fans have very mixed feelings about, there are a lot of people who certainly when that goal went in, there were huge cheers, massivejubilation that goal went in, there were huge cheers, massive jubilation and then three orfour cheers, massive jubilation and then three or four minutes later when it became clear that the goal would
10:06 pm
stand because she was a fraction of side, there was a huge disappointment, and the normal course of events before var, that would've stood and did a funny way, of the strictly speaking that it was not a goal, in terms of the flow of the game, it was almost more fair if it had. a lot of people were thinking that yes, they can see the var helped them, they got a penalty where they normally would not have, but it goes both ways. it also led to several minutes of injury time but at the end of the game, i think a lot of people here, it can be good, they can be not so good. we are going to speak to helen, a former player of the under 23 squad who is also in sunderland for us. first off, your thoughts on that match. pretty good. it was a roller
10:07 pm
coaster of emotions and i do think england gave everything, put everything into a buyjust think that we fell short, the usa on this date were superior and the passing was better and they were stronger and we needed a game where england we re and we needed a game where england were going to be at their best and that did not happen today. what did you make of that goal that nearly was but then wasn't? was a good finish, but it was offside, but that is the rules and it is not open to interpretation, so again, it kind of went dry the celebrations and i realise, it's just one of those things and they ruled it out. realise, it's just one of those things and they ruled it outlj realise, it's just one of those things and they ruled it out. i was listening to some of the chapter on social media and some people saying that the keyjust social media and some people saying that the key just wasn't able to get in the game, why is that? was at
10:08 pm
their positioning? i think the usa have just identified the risks and nullified them and neither of them really got into a flow and i just think that went across the pitch, england showed a lot of fight in grit but, we were just undone by the usa we were incredibly organised and disciplined and they defended well andi disciplined and they defended well and i think it wasjust disciplined and they defended well and i think it was just great tactical play by the united states. before the match, we got the news of two substitution, including englandimpossible scorekeeper. do you think they missed karen this evening? arguably. i think we argue about goalkeeper‘s heights and just an advantage to women's football.
10:09 pm
but the shots, could've upset the float in the last—minute changes can bring uncertainty and so, yeah, do you know what, we probably did have an effect on that. stepping up to ta ke an effect on that. stepping up to take the penalty, the pressure on her. was she the right person to step up to take that?” her. was she the right person to step up to take that? i was hoping to come up due to the record and i knew that ellen would not be taking it, i don't know why she didn't take it, i don't know why she didn't take it, she did a fantastic finisher in my next thought was, i thought she would've smashed into the top corner but she, it was and as a team i will be questioning why, it would've been the sign of great finish but if she
10:10 pm
had done, it would've been a different story. ultimately, this was a big achievement, notably for the nation, but the support that england got behind them was phenomenal. notjust nationally but globally. what should we take away from this in terms of the future of london possible football?” from this in terms of the future of london possible football? i think it has been incredible at the coverage has been incredible at the coverage has been incredible at the coverage has been great and people supporting the team, as an england team people we re the team, as an england team people were getting behind it because and were getting behind it because and we wa nt were getting behind it because and we want to grasp that momentum. if we want to grasp that momentum. if we had gotten through there, it would have put the game on leaps and bounds but people attending the games and going along and supporting the group and hopefully, it is gotten the lot of people. former
10:11 pm
player in the england under 23 squad, thank you so much forjoining us squad, thank you so much forjoining us this evening. you're watching bbc news, let's catch up with the weather now. good evening a lot of fine weather to come across the uk and the next few days, many of us will see the cloud filling in from time to time but it will be fair weather cloud building underan but it will be fair weather cloud building under an extensive area of high pressure, just thursday i think the chance of seeing some significant rainfall across northern scotland, generally though a dry area. overnight though, we will stay fine and you'll see a lot of cloud from the day dissolving and then getting quite chilly and rural wales and the hills of northern england in southern scotland, around three or 4 degrees from the patchy mist and fog across east anglia. but wednesday, a lot of sunshine from the get—go and we will see some thicker cloud pushing into northern scotland to the day and that is where the warm
10:12 pm
front will bring in some more consistent, perhaps heavier rain to the western aisles and the high lands, heavy rain to come here on thursday.

10:17 pm
a missed penalty chance, and a red card meant their tournament dreams were over. they gave it everything but guts and determination were not enough to overcome a superior american side, who are the reigning world champions and hot favourites to retain their title. katie gornall was watching the action and has this report. for england fans, there's a corner of every city they can call home. it isa of every city they can call home. it is a noisy one. and this time, they have something to sing about. absolutely massive, it's like a turning point in history for women's football. i'm really positive and i can't wait to be here at midnight and be like, "sorry!" but america are the superstars of women's football. england knew it would need
10:18 pm
an heroic effort to knock them off their perch. as well as being the defending champions, the usa has a level of support unmatched in women's sport. for them, this is like a home away from home, leaving england facing a formidable opponent on and off the pitch. there was, however, no place for megan rapinoe in the starting line—up, as the usa left their biggest player out of their biggest game. but this is a tea m their biggest game. but this is a team with a revolving door of talent, no megan rapinoe? that the opening goal. no problem, there's christen press, and england were facing an uphill battle from the knights minute. hunt usa lead. the england of old might have wilted under the pressure but they hit back instead. ellen white! it's1-1! she's done it again. beth mead finding ellen white for her sixth goal of the tournament. things were looking up. england's manager urged calm but there is no keeping america quiet for long. another cross... lovely run, beautiful girl. and
10:19 pm
another header, alex morgan does not miss these. just as the usa look to be moving up the gears, there was ellen white to slam on the brakes. yes! england had wrestled back control until the video assistant referee intervened. inches offside, the decision, and it inched the usa closer. so close. minutes later, var was called upon again. ellen white once more at the centre of things. it's a penalty. a penalty was the decision. it was a moment for england's captain to step up. step out on, saved! but steph houghton failed to rise to the challenge. emotions were running high and it was all starting to unravel. millie bright, oh. millie bright left england a player down. here comes the red card. and no fairy tale finish for england, for the third major tournament in a row, they've lost in a semifinal. phil neville said this would represent a failure for his side. so much hurt for the
10:20 pm
players who generated so much hope. katie gornall, bbc news, lyon. england coach phil neville gave his reaction to the loss a few minutes ago. my my players give me everything. we said before the game, we wanted to leave our hearts and souls on the pitch and they did, they gave everything. we've gone toe to toe with the best team in the world. they showed great experience at the end, taking the ball into the corner. we went down to ten men. you've probably run out of steam. —— we've probably. around 50,000 fans packed the stadium here in lyon. i can tell you the atmosphere in there was incredible, and of course, millions more were watching on tv around the world. many pubs and bars in england hosted world cup parties this evening, cheering on the lionesses. but of course, a lot of the celebrations people were hoping to have have now turned to sadness. sparrows are being drowned as a result of the loss.
10:21 pm
judith moritz has been getting the reactions of fans. short of being in lyon itself, this was one of the best places to watch the action, battersea park in south london, where the crowd lived through every twist and turn of the game. everyone jumped up through every twist and turn of the game. everyonejumped up and through every twist and turn of the game. everyone jumped up and was cheering, really excited, it was great. it was great, yeah, it's a beautiful venue, perfect place to watch it, amazing. their spirit for both countries is still really prevalent so i'm really enjoying myself. across the uk on sofas and in bars, more than 23 million people have followed the competition on tv, double the number who watched four yea rs double the number who watched four years ago. here in liverpool, it is personal. four of the lionesses come from merseyside alone. in fact, more than half of the entire squad hail from the north of england. over the pennines, the sheffield united women's team watched at their
10:22 pm
training ground. in liverpool, the crowd despaired during the tough moments of the second half and after the final whistle, the loss sank in. they tried so hard and they almost w011 they tried so hard and they almost won it, devastating. they're playing against the world's best team ever, against the world's best team ever, a fantastic performance.” against the world's best team ever, a fantastic performance. i don't think the best team won, to be honest. i think they've done the country proud again. disappointment, then, as the lionesses lost out but pride, too, in the performance they put in. judith moritz, bbc news. let's talk to our sports editor dan roan, who's pitchside in the stadium. dan, there was so much expectation, so many hopes for the england side. in the end the game turned on a number of controversial decisions? there is no doubt that england can count themselves somewhat u nfortu nate, count themselves somewhat unfortunate, clive, ithink, this evening. phil neville always said
10:23 pm
that they have come here to win this tournament. he felt they had the momentum, confidence and quality to do that so to have fallen at this stage i think will mean there is a real sense of disappointment and opportunity lost. despite that resilience and determination they showed this evening, they have now failed to get past the semifinal stage crucially at the last world cup, the last european championships and now tonight. getting beyond it is proving stubbornly difficult. having said that, there is no doubt they are getting closer, one feels, to the usa, the reigning champions who of course step the standard in the women's game. —— set the standard. there's a lot for this tea m standard. there's a lot for this team to be encouraged by. they are role models. they have performed admirably in the last few weeks and certainly in terms of the profile of the team, the recognition, shifting perceptions i think new household names have been created. people did not necessarily know who ellen white was before the tournament. they certainly do now and i think phil neville and the fa can take great credit for that in terms of the
10:24 pm
investment they've made in the game. they will now hope this acts as a springboard when it comes to attendances at club games, when it comes to girls and women participating in football and other sports. that that in turn can lead to greater equality financially when it comes to the future of the women's game. the journey may be overin women's game. the journey may be over in france but the future looks bright for this team. all right, dan, thank you, dan roan pitch side in the stadium. that's it from a disappointing night here in lyon — the final of the women's world cup is this sunday, where the us will take on either the netherlands or sweden for the title. that semifinal is tomorrow night. now, back to sophie in the studio. eu leaders have for the first time chosen a woman to be the next head of the european commission. the job looks set to go to the german defence minister, ursula von der leyen. today the european parliament met for the first time since elections in may. the new brexit party meps staged a protest by turning their backs during the eu's ode tojoy anthem,
10:25 pm
while lib dem meps wore yellow "stop brexit" t—shirts. adam fleming reports from strasbourg. day one of the new european parliament. the brexit party meps don't want to be here, and they didn't want to hear this. music: ode to joy. it's unlikely they'll get into trouble, and it sounds like there's more to come. our anger is not really against these people. i mean, monsieur barnier has done a brilliantjob. our anger is really about westminster not delivering on the referendum. defiance from the lib dems, too. their t shirts said "stop brexit" on the front. something much ruder on the back. the real message was on the front and that's what everybody saw on their tv cameras when they were looking at the opening of parliament, "stop brexit. " the time for stunts is over and now
10:26 pm
it's time for meps to get to work — their firstjob is electing a president for the parliament. in brussels, exhausted national leaders ended three days of talks about the top jobs and the other bits of the eu. they suggested the german defence minister ursula von der leyen to run the european commission, which monitors whether countries are sticking to eu rules. the belgian prime minister, charles michel, will chair future summits as president of the council. the international monetary fund boss christine lagarde has been lined up to run the european central bank, and the spanish foreign minister will manage eu foreign policy. a perfect gender balance. i am really happy about it. after all, europe is a woman. i think it was worth waiting for such an outcome. but divisions — geographical, political and personal — have been on dramatic display as the european union gears itself up for the next five years.
10:27 pm
adam fleming, bbc news, strasbourg. our europe editor, katya adler, is in brussels. a change of faces at the top but will that change the bigger picture? that is a very good question, sophie because eu voters gave a really loud call for change in the recent european parliamentary elections. it was mainly a pro—eu vote but one for change nonetheless and looking at that suggest the top line up of eu jobs do not expect the winds of change to come howling through these streets anytime soon. it is pretty much the same when it comes to brexit, too. take the nominee for the next president of the european commission, ursula von der leyen. she is a very fluent english speaker but first and foremost, she's a committed conservative europhile and a loyalist of angela merkel and anyway, when it comes to the brexit withdrawal agreement, the only ones withdrawal agreement, the only ones with the power to change the text 110w with the power to change the text now are the leaders of the eu member states if they choose to do so, and
10:28 pm
not the european commission. something else that will be food for thought for the next prime minister, look how long it took the eu leaders to come to a decision about these eu topjobs. what we to come to a decision about these eu top jobs. what we learned there is that while germany and france are still powerful, they are not all—powerful. they were unable to impose theirjoint all—powerful. they were unable to impose their joint will all—powerful. they were unable to impose theirjoint will on the rest. angela merkel has got one foot out of the political door now. emmanuel macron is not that transforming eu force he hoped to be. that is something possibly for the new prime minister to consider before he rushes off to berlin and paris, and focuses his efforts there on trying to renegotiate the brexit deal. katya adler in brussels, thank you. police are trying to identify the body of a suspected stowaway who fell from a plane and landed in a garden in south west london — next to a man sunbathing. officers believe the person fell from a kenya airways flight as it opened its landing gear on the approach to heathrow. here's our special correspondent lucy manning. coming into land at heathrow
10:29 pm
on sunday, but minutes earlier, from beneath this kenya airways plane, a body had fallen to the ground. the man fell thousands of feet into a garden in clapham. a small crater visible. it is a desperate act, to stow away on a plane, and he didn't survive. the body, described as an ice block, just missed a man who was sunbathing in the garden. neighbours are reported to have said they heard an almighty bang and that a man had fallen from the sky. the man who was sunbathing in the garden has been left badly shaken by what he saw and the narrowness that and the narrow miss that could have killed him as well. the kenya airways flight left nairobi on sunday morning at 7:19 british time, at the start of a nine—hour, 4,000—mile trip. it was at 3,500 feet when the body fell. the plane flying over offerton road at 3:36pm, and landing at heathrowjust
10:30 pm
six minutes later. this has happened in the past. i have heard about it happening in richmond. now it has just happened here. it is quite frightening it has happened so close as well. the poor chap. a bbc documentary about a man who fell to his death in 2012 showed how stowaways get into aircraft. and he would have had to climb up as quickly as possible, along this bit of metal and then into the wheel arch. the temperature's down to —60 celsius, and the partial pressure of oxygen's not enough to sustain life, so the stowaway will pass out at about 20,000 feet and then they will die above 30,000 feet. then, on the approach to land, the gear comes down and they probably fall out of the aircraft and fault of their and they probably fall out of the aircraft and fall to their death, if they are not already dead. a bag, water and some food were discovered by the landing gear. they were not enough to keep the stowaway alive. lucy manning, bbc news.
10:31 pm
indigenous people living in the amazon rainforest fear their survival is being threatened as more and more trees are cut down to make way for farming and agriculture. they say brazil's new president is now allowing deforestation in some of the 700 protected areas for indigenous groups within the brazilian rainforest, which cover more than a tenth of brazil's entire land area. around 900,000 indigenous people live there, but that's a tiny proportion of brazil's overall population. our science editor david shukman has been to see one group fearing for its future. in a remote corner of the amazon, talk of conflict and how to prepare for it. the indigenous people of the forest feel the need to defend themselves. this man has dark memories of the first violent contacts with the outside world in the middle
10:32 pm
of the last century. his wife was wounded as a young girl. an attack left her with scars and killed her family. there is a long history of conflict over land, and she says she's now worried once more. known as the uru—eu—wau—wau, they are a tiny band ofjust 120 and they've never been so vulnerable. they are making an ink that is used as a war paint. they feel the new government of brazil is against them, and that they have to be on guard. so they patrol what is meant to be a protected reserve. but they discover incursions, like this track, carved out to steal timber or create new farms.
10:33 pm
this is where they gather food and hunt. they used to be seen as guardians of the forest. now, they say, invaders are encouraged by the new president of brazil, jair bolsonaro. farmers are already pressing against the dark green edge of the reserve and the president says they should be allowed to use it, that indigenous people have too much land. our research with satellite pictures
10:34 pm
of the region reveals over the past 20 years how quickly trees can be wiped out. so this is the forest of the uru—eu—wau—wau. i show the people of the reserve the view from space, of what they are experiencing on the ground. with all this farmland all around you, and you are about there, just in that little corner. with all these pressures, tensions are escalating. shots were fired at the sign marking the reserve. these farmers live just down the road and like the president, they want access to the forest.
10:35 pm
so, two very different views of the future of this land. the farmers with their fields, right beside the indigenous people in the forest. the fate of the children here is uncertain. they are learning traditional skills and they have rights under brazilian law, but they are outnumbered and powerful forces are circling outside. david shukman, bbc news, in the amazon. the bbc has defended the wages of its top presenters and senior staff, as it moves to end free tv licences for millions of over 75s. the annual report revealed the number of people earning over £150,000 a year has risen. for the first time, three women are in the top ten earners. here's our media editor, amol rajan. the roll call of top earners among the bbc‘s on air staff shows salaries that are many, many multiples of the average take—home pay in the uk. it includes some people
10:36 pm
who've left the bbc, such as chris evans, and comes just a few weeks after the corporation said only those over 75 and on pension credit would get a free tv licence from next june. lord hall... its boss insists the bbc operates frugally in a tough market. i'm thinking about people watching this in huddersfield and rochdale and rochester, who are thinking, "hang on a second, you're paying gary lineker £1.75 million. you're taking this benefit away from me at the same time. why don't you just pay some of these famous people for less? because they'd do it for less." i understand the dilemma of somebody who's thinking "i'm having the licence fee taken away from me." of course i do. i'm sensitive to that, i understand that. on the other hand, what comes back from our consultation is we also want to make sure that you've got stars who we want to watch and want to listen to on the bbc, and that includes gary lineker. the list published today reveals the salaries of bbc staff paid over £150,000, and includes me. most bbc staff are producers, researchers or administrators on conventional public sector salaries. they include women
10:37 pm
who are still embroiled in grievances over equal pay. the bbc‘s gender pay gap has fallen and there are now three women in the top ten salary brackets. the bbc is buffeted by forces both global and local. wealthy competitors are driving hyper inflation in sport and drama, putting its very business model under strain. meanwhile, as a public broadcaster in polarized times, its every commercial and editorial decision faces unprecedented scrutiny. the question of who should pay reflects britain's generational divide. at the age it 75? i think, if they can afford it, then they can pay for it. i want to see something from the bbc in cutting back their wages bill. i want to see them make a contribution as well as asking for an extra contribution from the over 75s. the bbc‘s lifeblood is public love and affection. for all the changes it's made, these salary disclosures jeopardise that.
10:38 pm
amol rajan, bbc news. conditions at migrant detention centres on the us—mexico border has led to security concerns there being described as a "ticking time bomb" according to an official report by a us government watchdog. a doctor who visited one of the facilities has told the bbc that what she found could be compared to torture. our correspondent chris buckler reports from washington. at america's border, migrant families will tell you what they expect and what they hope for when they reach the united states. it's opportunity, safety and refuge — currently the reality is very different. inside the processing and detention facilities along this border a new watchdog report talks of dangerous overcrowding, security concerns and children having no access to showers. it was, in the words of one official, a ticking time bomb.
10:39 pm
they put them in a room with no running water and these women were being told by cbp officers to drink out of the toilet. they were drinking water out of the toilet. and that was them knowing that a congressional visit was coming. that this is cbp on their best behavior. there are several facilities along the border. and while the authorities claim they're doing the best they can, they're struggling to cope with a surge of people coming from central america. and a doctor who has been inside the processing centre in texas where children are being cared for says what she discovered was distinctly uncaring. even the minor things that border patrol may not think are significant like the 2a hour lights on, not having a place to wash their hands, infrequent baths, not having a place to wash the formula bottles, not quite enough food and water, that is completely demoralizing
10:40 pm
to these people and yes i believe that's causing significant and lasting trauma. in her reports for a group of immigration lawyers she compared what she found to torture facilities. for weeks you're not sleeping well, you feel awful and your whole day is an onslaught of negative experiences. yes, i believe that that's torture. president trump believes tougher immigration policies are needed to deter people from coming to the us but there is growing anger over how they are treated, no matter how or why they arrive here. chris buckler, bbc news, brownsville in texas. on the first day of the contaminated blood hearings in edinburgh, victims and relatives have spoken out, describing what they say was a "coalition of secrecy" and "a genuine attempt to obscure what happened". thousands of patients were infected with hiv and hepatitis c via contaminated blood products in the 1970s and 1980s. here's our health editor, hugh pym. alistair, when he was about to start at university, with the car shared with his sister. but he never got to do his final exams. he died at 22, with hiv aids.
10:41 pm
that was because of treatment as a young boy for haemophilia with infected blood products. it was only an impersonal letter, some years later, which told his parents he had been exposed to the virus after tests they didn't know had happened. we learned that he had a potentially fatal, untreatable condition and it manifested, really, in those early years, when he was 1a, 15, 16, he was hugely angry a lot of the time. his mother believes she was infected with hepatitis while caring for him. she thinks the government should not have allowed treatment with imported blood products from paid donors. we suspect it was a political decision. "oh, we won't bother with those people. we'll spend our money on something else and not do this." we'll get the stuff from america. it's cheaper." there was a public inquiry in scotland under the judge lord penrose, with the final report in 2015. but it had limited powers and campaigners demonstrated their contempt, branding it a whitewash. after the penrose report, the scottish government increased financial assistance for victims.
10:42 pm
the government at westminster did the same for england, just a couple of months ago. the haemophilia society said that meant support for those in wales and northern ireland remained woefully inadequate. some, like dai, believe there was a coalition of secrecy. the scottish hospital where he was treated did not tell him for nine years he had hepatitis c. had there been more openness and honesty, better treatments could possibly have developed more quickly and perhaps many lives could have been saved and many more lives less blighted. thejudge said this was an inquiry without borders, but there was not the luxury of time, as people continue to suffer and die. hugh pym, bbc news, edinburgh. andy murray has announced he will partner seven time champion serena williams in the mixed doubles
