tv Breakfast BBC News July 14, 2019 8:00am-9:01am BST
good morning welcome to breakfast with nina warhurst and rogerjohnson. our headlines today... england's cricketers get ready for the biggest game of their lives as they face new zealand in the world cup final. we're live at lord's as eoin morgan's side face new zealand today, looking to win their first ever world cup. there is a little bit of rain, but it will improve, i promise. more diplomatic memos from britain's former us ambassador are published, despite police warning the media against it. tropical storm barry continues to batter the southern us state of louisiana as millions face the risk of life—threatening floods.
good morning. there should be lots of dry weather around today with some warm spells of sunshine for most of us as well. we just have a few showers around this money to clear away but i will have all of the details for you and around quarter of an hour. it's sunday 14th july. our top story. one match away from making history. england take on new zealand in the men's cricket world cup final at lord's later today. it's their first final since 1992, and neither team has ever won the trophy. mike bushell reports. come on over! it's the biggest game so far for england, come on! a cricket home world cup comes along once in a generation and the england squad certainly have not let this opportunity slip through theirfingers. after crashing out of the group stages four years ago, 27 years have passed since england were last in a world cup final. and they now stand on the brink of winning one of sport's top
honours for the very first time. it means a huge amount to me and to everybody in the changing room. it's a culmination of four years of hard work, dedication, a lot of planning and represents a huge opportunity to go and try -- it —— it presents a huge opportunity to go and try and win a world cup. there is a turn it has seen a good—humoured age—old rivalries at play, selling out stadiums up and down the uk and never short of excited fans. get in! england came into the tournament as the one's to beat, as the ones to beat, but their progress to the final has not been straightforward. back to back defeats to sri lanka and australia in the group phase left them on the verge of elimination. but then came a vital wins against india and new zealand before their semifinal triumph over australia at edgbaston. it's the best sporting live day of my life. fantastic! amazing! we never beat australia like that. # we're just a small island nation! new zealand are now gearing up for their second consecutive
world cup final, hoping luck will be on their side at this time around. on their side this time around. it's just a great occasion to be part of and i know the guys are really excited by the opportunity to go out and try and play with that freedom that, when we do, gives us the best chance. and for the first time in 14 years, england will play a home international on terrestrial tv after rights—holders sky agreed to share the coverage with channel 4, meaning fans not lucky enough to be inside a packed out lord's won't miss out on any of the action. mike bushell, bbc news at lord's. and we'll speak to mike live from lords in a few minutes' time and we'll keep our fingers crossed that the rain stops. once the game is under way bbc radio 5 live will be covering the game from around 9:50am. the mail on sunday has published more leaked messages sent by britain's former ambassador to the united states.
in one of them, sir kim darroch accuses president trump of "diplomatic vandalism" over his decision to abandon the nuclear deal with iran. the documents were made public, despite a warning from police to the media not to publish the leaked material. both conservative leadership contenders have defended the rights of the press to publish the document. this jeremy hunt described it as a vital part of the uk's democracy. earlier on breakfast, we spoke to david banks, a media law consultant. time we get it wrong and if we get it wrong we face prosecution and very severe fines. i think it is a step too farfor very severe fines. i think it is a step too far for the place to take pre—emptive action to discourage publication, making newspaper editors a look over their shoulders. it has an odd thing for the met to do andi it has an odd thing for the met to do and i think it has caused great concern. a man's been changed with the murder of a heavily pregnant woman
and the manslaughter of her baby in south london. kelly mary fauvrelle, who was 26 was stabbed to death at her home in croydon last month. her son riley was delivered by paramedics but died days later in hospital. the uk will not be able to control key elements of a no—deal brexit, should we leave the eu without a deal. that's what the chancellor phillip hammond has said in a new edition of bbc panorama. with just days left before he's expected to leave the treasury, the chancellor has said the eu will control most of the process if the uk leaves without a deal later this year. we're joined now by political correspondent, helena wilkinson, who's here to tell us more. helena... this is the third time in the last four weeks or so that the chancellor has made a stark warning about a no—deal brexit. his time to leave could be coming up. politically motivated? some might think that it is, but this is all part of a programme, a special panorama programme, a special panorama programme called britain's brexit
crisis looking at what went wrong with the brexit negotiations. this looks like a final warning to both tory candidate who want to be the next by minister and philip hammond has said in this programme is that he is talking about a no deal scenario. if the uk leaves the european union without a deal, he says that, despite all the planning that has gone on, it will be difficult for the uk to control things. he said that there is no of controlling key elements that the united kingdom will not be able to do that. he also says that it will be the european union who will control many of the labourers. —— levers. he says that the uk will not be able to control what happens at the cali end of the channel tunnel. —— calais. he says we will be able to control what happens at the port of dover but not what happens at
calais and likens it to what is happening in spain. he is suggesting that britain would be at the mercy of france any no deal millions of people are braced for potentially life—threatening flooding after tropical storm barry made landfall in the us state of louisiana. more than 100,000 households are already without power and flooding is expected to be most severe in areas southwest of new orleans. 0ur correspondent sophie long reports. coastal towns were battered by winds of up to 70 miles an hour. there was flooding in low—lying areas and whole communities were left without power. now, the storm is moving slowly north through the state of louisiana. barry may have been downgraded from a hurricane to a tropical storm from a category one hurricane to a tropical storm almost as soon as it made landfall but people here are still concerned. this is one reason why. the mississippi river has been swollen to flood levels for many
months and now forecasters are predicting further downpours in the next 48 hours. this term itself is going to weaken. —— in the storm itself is going to weaken. but there is so much water with the storm, it will come north. and where some of these rain bands sit, they have the potential to produce a foot or more of rain. people here originally heeded warnings to shelter in their homes but as they started to return to the streets, the city's mayor warned they were not out of the woods yet. while the storm surge risk on the city has passed, the primary risk continues to remain. heavy rains for the city of new orleans. the levy system that protects the city from major flooding has so far stood up to the storm's force. but there is concern that heavy rain could still overwhelm the drainage —— overwhelm the city's antiquated
drainage system. system and flash flood warnings have now been extended to this evening. england are aiming to win their first ever cricket world cup when they meet new zealand in the final at lords today. the hosts are playing in their first final for 27 years, it's a game that will be shown on free to air tv. mike bushell is at lord's now... mike, where has your polygon?” mike, where has your polygon? i do not like brollies. they get anyway. —— where has your polygon. not like brollies. they get anyway. -- where has your polygon. that is a bit of a spout pawing in the rain of the roof there and it is not that bad. it is going to be fine, i'm told. cred start coming in at 830, so getting the owner. the excitement is really building. —— crowds are coming in at 8:30am. if they play like they did against australia, england, then it surely new zealand will not be able to cope with that. new zealand have hurt from losing the final a few years ago. let's
talk to people who know what talking about. guy, we will come to any moment. you know what it is like to beat new zealand in the final, what you think will be main set b of the england players? it's amazing, is it not? that is the stuff that dreams are made up by the immense perspective. they have not been any post final since doctor mike i have read quotes from eoin morgan. you're always thinking about the trophy. it is going to be the commotion today but i think we are looking forward to it. england's women are the champions again, having won it more recently. what would it mean to have the world champions are men and women as well. we are at a time or are looking at cricket to expand to new audiences, having the men and women in 50 other championships means we can reach out to more people. success makes a big difference, does not? when you can
talk about the trophy and beanie champions it is much more excited —— much easier to excited the children and their skills. they have been think i could have a 200 years, it is one of the most famous buildings in any sport any well. so i suppose thatis in any sport any well. so i suppose that is where the pressure comes from, this historical context. absolutely. we have great responsibility to the party, so to speak. we are building up to the la st speak. we are building up to the last couple of years and i was the culmination of the third game of the world cup, but this is that they we re world cup, but this is that they were big one. include any final at the home of cricket, the most historic and famous cricket ground in the world and we are really privileged to be doing it and the rain is going to collapse in and we are going to have a fabulous day. it's going going to be a brilliant experience. —— the rain is going to clear up soon. we have from eoin morgan this morning about how they ripped up the rule book and had a different approach to batting and here we are in the final against new zealand who are credited with
helping england develop their style, if you like? absolutely. england are playing phenomenally well and new zealand are looking good, so anything can happen in a world cup final. looking back to 2017, the women's world cup final. it is one of the greatest games ever played here and it was an amazing expense for those who attended. hopefully today will be much the same and it should be really exciting. fingers crossed for a great day for everyone who consults up and you're confident that the remote stop? it is going to stop. if it stops turn we will be paying on time. ebony, what others do in terms of the wicked? all four matches that have been played here so far have been won by the team batting first? one thing that england are confident is chasing. bowlers i want to get there first. overhead conditions mean that the ball is going to swing more. there isa ball is going to swing more. there is a bit of green on the wicked, so there might still be some movement.
england have got some great bowlers, archer, walks. we can see them —— works. it changes the game plan but i think they had to get up there with the ball. jason roy is my favourite player of i grappling with him in the academy in surrey. —— i grew up playing with him. he learned his cricket from the former new zealand captain brendon mccullum and he is going to be taking that they are against new zealand today. whether they back together, they put ona numberof whether they back together, they put on a number of hundred run partnership is that a set england up so well. so if and just do what they do, one or both come up, don't forget we have ben stokes who could have set some direct offer. an
exciting team to watch today. psychologically it is so good in terms of the way that they had pete at the right time. and a gun patch in the grip, in the team at the time, australia were looking like the tim —— having gone through that bad patch in the group. every team any bad patch in the group. every team a ny world bad patch in the group. every team any world cup run with needs those pick—ups. i got annoyed after that lost hirsch reinke, i was banging on the walls and, come on england! —— that loss to shri lanka. it sets you up that loss to shri lanka. it sets you up mentally. they're hungry for it. they look relaxed but ready to go. predictions from both? 100% england predictions from both? 10096 england for me. it's got to be 100% england. more from here shortly when hopefully the rain will have stopped and the crowds will start coming in.
we are getting at close! indeed. and just to confirm from people, it looks like a torrential downpour, but you're standing next to an overflowing drain? that is right. it is good in terms of pictures and dramatic. that is a slight pouring water of a rift. it is not that heavy, it is still raining, persistent rain, it is more than drizzle, but that is persistent rain and it is a brighter skies, i promise you that. i'm not an eternal optimist —— not just promise you that. i'm not an eternal optimist —— notjust an eternal optimist, but it is getting brighter stop it would have to be really torrential to dampen a make's enthusiasm. let's find out from an expert heavy weather is going to be later. they share every band that has been tracking its way southwards through the night will be clearing away fairly soon. possibly a delay of the start, but that is the worst case scenario. over crossbills behind me,
west wales, of rebels behind me. you can see that rain, almost disguised by the name brand in there. but it is, as you can see, just meandering its way southwards it will clear any necks are alerted. as we go to the cricket in lords, where we have the rain at the moment, it will be drying up, as you can see, towards the lunchtime period and that close, heavier rain as you coat over there, then clearing out of the way. it should be gone for wimbledon, starting here later. it is not close enough to silver seem to cause any issues here. it is moving away. —— silverton. it any shares materialise this afternoon, there are likely to be in the west actually. here we could see some coastal sea breezes pushing that moisture back in there the mountains. the latest ones and nearly north of seacoast, a bit of a
cool breeze, it brisk breeze —— north sea coast. some fine and dry weather as we go through this evening and overnight in showers will disappear. we pick up some cloud for instance, that is england. that holds the temperatures up here but we have lost the humidity, so waco night again. we were down to near freezing last night —— fear show sets out across eastern areas will stop that cloud meandering its way across the coast is the sunshine works its way through. temperatures we re works its way through. temperatures were left a little higher than today. already going to be a little higher than yesterday. as we lose that keen breeze in the east, it will be a brighter day. jesse brings with it the risk of some heavier showers across parts of scotland, but before i go i would like to talk about what is happening with storm barry. it is just a tropical storm, but this is all about the event. you can see that the cloud mass is still
sitting over the gulf of mexico so it still has its moisture source, even though the eye of the storm has now denied, it is still pulling up this moisture, so there are still days more of rain to come —— the eye of the storm has pulled inland. we will see a very high threat of flooding. the mississippi is well above what it should be anyway because of a wet spring. it is definitely still one to watch. back to you nina and roger. in terms of the sporting events, it will be fine? yes, that rain is clearing through. the cloud will lift and break and it will be gone by the time we start wimbledon. in the showers should be in the west. keep them cross, helen! if we sat there and it is raining, we will blame you for misinforming us! i amjust and it is raining, we will blame you for misinforming us! i am just the
messenger! you're watching breakfast and it is coming up to 8:20am. you're watching breakfast from bbc news, it's time now for a look at the newspapers. let's look at the front pages. the mail on sunday digs further into leaked diplomatic emails from the ex—uk ambassador in the us, sir kim darroch. the paper says sir kim claimed that us president donald trump abandoned the iran nuclear deal to spite his predecessor barack obama. the sunday times also focuses on the ‘leaked' emails. it reports on the fact that the brexit party chairman and mep richard tice is in a relationship with isabel oakshotte, the journalist who broke the story last week. its main picture is the new wimbledon women's champion, simona halep. we will talk a bit more about wimbledon in the next hour or so. the sunday telegraph is also looking at the diplomatic leak, with claims that prime minister theresa may and her officials have come "under fire" after the metropolitan police warned journalists not to publish any more leaks.
its wimbledon picture isn't the winner but two spectators who watched the final — the duchesses of cambridge and sussex. and the observer says whistle—blowers who criticised labour's handling of allegations of anti—semitism are to sue the party over its response to a bbc panorama programme on the subject. the nation's favourite maths teacher, bobby seagull, is here to tell us what's caught his eye. an hour ago we set a maths puzzle and begin the answer outjust before 8am. we explained it and some people do not get it. can you just explain what the question was and give us the answer. i do not think we will do another one because it was a can of worms. ok, the puzzle was that it england when the world cup today, the 11 players on the pitch will do a high five with each other. my question was how many high fives where there? question was how many high fives where there ? firstly question was how many high fives where there? firstly i will tell you the answer and then the method. the answer was 55. well done if you got
it. imagine there are just two of us here. between the two of us there is one high five. if we add another person, roger, now there is one class a tooth. if we added someone else, there would be one plus two plus three. —— now there is one plus two. then eight, then seven. we will still have the last one. so it is 55. bobby siegel maths expert has told us. everyone who does not believe it, —— bobby seagull. told us. everyone who does not believe it, -- bobby seagull. some are best just believe it, -- bobby seagull. some are bestjust to say believe it, -- bobby seagull. some are best just to say that they tried to work it out my brain tried to work it out and that i stopped and had some toast. 60 minutes a day of
sport for girls. what is the idea behind this? after the women's world cup, we have had names like ellen white becoming household names, so it is an opportunity to use it as a platform to encourage girls in sport. there is a skill action plan where they are saying girls should have 30 minutes a day and a 30 minutes after school. the great thing about this campaign, there is a campaign by sport england, inspired by the #thisgirl campaign. i love things like joe wicks, so i can imagine people going along to cardio during high fives. we think we would have gone past this target now? i think it is getting better because we can see from a netball team and affable team but it takes time to get everyone on board. tim
peake is time to get everyone on board. tim pea ke is any time to get everyone on board. tim peake is any telegraph today saying that we should go to the moon and learn how to do it before trying to colonise mars. he has expertise will stop something called the lunar gateway, we have the european space agency, nasa, the russian space agency and the japanese one. they could perhaps then have a base to colonise the moon. and today's sunday express, sorry, hundreds of schools have banned pupils from wearing false eyelashes after a rise in young girls copying tv reality stars. i like university challenge, but i am stars. i like university challenge, butlama stars. i like university challenge, but i am a lover island than stop
metered. —— love island than. for those who do not watch it it is people going on to win fame and fortune. children will turn up to scale with these great eyelashes which perhaps are not filled in with the school uniform policy. it is interesting that the teacher in surrey says they are banned because they are feeding into this increasing picture of young people competing about what they look like and that is not necessarily a healthy way to be at school what i enjoy watching love island, it does a feed into a narcissistic society obsess about how we look and for young people, young teenagers, this has got to prey on mental health issues as well. thank you for coming to review the papers with us. and a setting that little teaser for everybody. maths on a sunday
morning, any ten! thank you very much. it is a 20 4am. you're watching breakfast from bbc news. two whistleblowers featured in a bbc panorama investigation into anti—semitism in the labour party have said they now plan to sue the party for defamation. the programme — shown on wednesday — included claims that senior figures including jeremy corbyn's communications chief and also his general secretary — had interfered in anti—semitism investigations. they allege that labour painted them as disaffected former officials who had falsely made malicious representations. joining us now is mark lewis, the media lawyer acting for the whistleblowers. a very good morning to you. good morning. the party has said that these witnesses have been undermined so the party has been undermined. they left under a shadow so they
have an agenda? of course they have an agenda in one sense. they have an agenda of employees who are speaking out against their bosses. if the labour party stands for anything, it stands up for protecting workers' rights. it is absolutely squashing workers right here. and going against the workers. you could not make this up. ultimately, this will come down to evidence. the labour party will have to prove that they did have an agenda that was not clear. you will have to prove that they did not. that is not quite how they did not. that is not quite how the law works. the burden of proof is only one party. it depends how they defend the claim. if they are saying that they want to stand up allegations that the people making complaints against them are lying, then bring it on. at the court will decide that issue. but the idea that so many people would be conspiring to tell lies between themselves is actually bizarre. people are going
to fight —— these people are going to fight —— these people are going to fight —— these people are going to fight a labour party because they are fighting their bosses. and people ought to remember that if it was not the labour party but it was theiremployer was not the labour party but it was their employer who happen to be a car manufacturer or happen to be a retailer, the labour party would be speaking out against them. labour party values are absolutely nothing in this because they are going against the worker. we know that not all of the evidence is any public domain, what makes you so confident that are right? what is being sued about is what is in the public domain. they are making it to... the labour party amid allegations. they came across after a programme on panorama. they came across the labour party, dismissed it and dismiss the people, effectively saying that those people were liars and they had an agenda to tell lies. in orderto and they had an agenda to tell lies. in order to get vindication, people who were accused of telling lies will go to court and will make the people who say that either take it
back or the court will accept what they say. but they are using the courts to challenge what is being said about them former employer. they weigh up the wider picture labour party is jeremy they weigh up the wider picture labour party isjeremy corbyn saying that there processes have been changed and the problem has been bad in the past. only 0.1% of party membership. is it not time to move forward ? membership. is it not time to move forward? yes, it is time to move forward? yes, it is time to move forward and time to move forward for a court to decide the actual truth of the position. these people have been accused of things had been —— had to getjobs in the been accused of things had been —— had to get jobs in the future been accused of things had been —— had to getjobs in the future and have to have their reputation indicated. they are being killed by terrible things of their bosses and thatis terrible things of their bosses and that is what the labour party is meant to protect. —— they are being accused of terrible things by their bosses. thank you. the andrew marr programme is on later this morning at ten o'clock, and andrew is with us
to tell us what's coming up. good morning, andrew. we are going to be looking that appalling living there labour party to pieces. —— ripping the labour party to pieces. the country is heading bit by bit to a possible no—deal brexit and i am going to be talking to amber rudd, one of the cabinet ministers who has been fighting against that and now seems to be changing her position. that is of course a leadership contest, but there is a leadership contest, but there is a leadership contest going on... i'll be talking to ed davey who is trying very hard to ed davey who is trying very hard to become leader of the lib democrat. finally it is the big for english cricket. i've been talking to andrew strauss, the great under stress, fantastic new film about the great english cricket team. join me if you possibly can. stay with us, headlines coming up.
hello, this is breakfast with nina warhurst and rogerjohnson. it's... just gone 8:30am. here's a summary of this morning's main news. the mail on sunday has published more leaked messages sent by britain's former ambassador to the united states. in one of them, sir kim darroch accuses president trump of "diplomatic vandalism" over his decision to abandon the nuclear deal with iran. the documents have been made public, despite a warning from police to the media not to publish the leaked material. two whistleblowers featured in a bbc panorama investigation into anti—semitism in the labour party have said they now plan to sue the party for defamation. the programme —
shown last wednesday — included claims that senior figures including jeremy corbyn's communications chief and his general secretary, had interfered in anti—semitism investigations. labour responded after the programme by saying the allegations came from "disaffected former officials" opposed to mr corbyn's leadership. the whistleblowers allege that labour painted them as people who had falsely made malicious representations. a man's been changed with the murder of a heavily pregnant woman and the manslaughter of her baby in south london. kelly mary fauvrelle, who was 26 was stabbed to death at her home in croydon last month. her son riley was delivered by paramedics but died days later in hospital. millions of people are braced for potentially life—threatening flooding after tropical storm barry made landfall in the us state of louisiana. more than 100,000 households are already without power and flooding is expected to be most severe in areas southwest of new orleans. the storm reached hurricane strength as it neared land, but has now weakened to a storm, sustaining winds of 60mph.
nhs trusts, schools and local councils in england and wales could soon have a legal duty to help tackle serious youth violence under plans by the home secretary. under the proposals, public bodies will have to share data and intelligence to combat crime. the government says the new rules are designed to build on existing responsibilities. tributes are being paid to a tv and youtube presenter who's been killed in a crash in south london. it's thought 35 year old emily hartridge was riding an electric scooter when she was involved in an accident in battersea. a statement posted on her social media said she'll never be forgotten. those are the main stories this morning. you are up—to—date with all the menus. it's a busy day of sport. mike is life for us at lord's, you still got a brolly up. that gutter is overflowing in front of the
camera and we've got everything crossed that it will clear up. mike, it's still early, isn't it? the crowds are starting to come in with their umbrellas, there is blue sky to the left of me over there, it will clear up to allow play, maybe not to start on time at 10:30am but maybe they will push that back to 11 to give the wicked behind me a chance to recover. let's come a bit nearer, no problem, sir, you've got yourjob to do. just a huge chance to rewrite history for england ‘s recorders. they've been in the world cup final three times before back in 79, 87 and cup final three times before back in 79,87 and 92 cup final three times before back in 79, 87 and 92 but cup final three times before back in 79,87 and 92 but on cup final three times before back in 79, 87 and 92 but on those occasions they lost. but since then, they've been missing out on big occasions, back to 92, the whole generation missing out but now, they've come through against adversity in this tournament, they struggled in the group stage at one point to now be the form team and the favourites to lift the world cup for the first time this afternoon against new
zealand. yesterday i sat down with the england captain eoin morgan and england fans will be reassured how relaxed he seemed. congratulations. how have you thought about how you feel? the chance to win world cup doesn't come around very often, we are extremely excited, we hope everyone is. so for you, take us back to when you were born, did you have a dream of leading a team out of the world cup final? it's not far removed i never evenin final? it's not far removed i never even in my wildest dreams thought of it. it's awesome, i dreamt of hitting runs in the world cup final, i never dreamt i would leave my country out in a world cup final so that probably sums up how much it means. did the nerves kick in? i was
very calm, excited, looking forward to the game, it's an opportunity we've created through hard work, resilience. a lot of hours of putting in i suppose work that sometimes doesn't want to be done. everybody in the changing room has contributed to this over the last four years and it culminates in a world cup final. it's notjust about this tournament, it's world cup final. it's notjust about this tournament, its work that's been done since four years ago. this revolution that has led the revolution that has led the revolution started in new zealand and inspired by one of your great mates, the former new zealand captain brendon mccullum who was master of ceremonies at your wedding. that's the tournament that initiated everything, a pretty dark time after that game in wellington. we were humiliated. and eventually knocked out of the tournament. we came back and we sat down and made a plan, we were so far behind the rest of the world at the time, the process of getting to the next world cup, we pretty much hit rock bottom at the time. there was daylight
between us and the best teams in the world. it was humiliating. and it's not a nice feeling, we were playing the wrong brand of cricket, we didn't adapt to any conditions and we sort of went in with the wrong mindset. you started hitting teams from the front, being aggressive, brave, bold with the bat especially. i think 2015 indicated that was the direction, 50 over cricket was going, we needed, in order to be considered contenders for this world cup we needed to be ranked in the top three in the world, we are now ranked number one, thankfully. but to be playing a brand of cricket that actually pushes the opposition back and is exciting to watch and play in. what would it mean for you personally at the end of your journey to lift the world cup as captain? it would mean absolutely everything, it really would. the whole country is behind you. thank you very much. best of luck.
wouldn't change so much? the impact of the game, and joined by michael vaughan, former england captain, he has the top pocket handkerchief which has been lucky in terms of england, first of all. i have worn it every game, i have to say, this was stolen from adam gilchrist! i think he won three in the winter. i stole it from his top pocket, i've kept it ever since, england have won every game. it's stayed in today. no hope for new zealand. it is in the mindset of the players, we are looking out on the wicket with the rain falling, what are you thinking, a later start? maybe, you want to get the preparation going, today is about individuals, i know the team collectively have played well, both teams have produced a wonderful performance to get here but today is about individuals arriving and doing your job, about individuals arriving and doing yourjob, trying to make about individuals arriving and doing y°urjob, trying to make that difference, when your battles. jason roy, johnny bairstow against players like trent bold, kane williamson, ross taylor, they are the players
england will probably spend more time talking about over the last couple of days, trying to work a plan to make sure they can put them under pressure. one thing is sure it's going to be a great day, the app around the ground, i know it's a little bit damp about the it is buzzing outside, the cafe is, bars, eve ryo ne buzzing outside, the cafe is, bars, everyone is talking, it's going to bea everyone is talking, it's going to be a great day. you've been in the game so long now, so influentialfor english cricket, you've seen it go through different times and fortunes but how are you filling yourself, emotionally today? it's great. i didn't think i'd ever see england in a50 didn't think i'd ever see england in a 50 over immense world cup final, from four we were four years ago to where we are now in terms of playing the game, to think the final is at lord's, the home of cricket, eoin morgan plays here from middlesex, so many great stories, so many people who done a wonderfuljob over the last four years, the hard work is about today. and if the players can just, you know, realise all the hard work has been done for four years, just come out and play the game i am confident england should lift the trophy. it's about peaking, we saw
what happened in the group stage, we thought they might go out early like and 99. and i around and if they play like they did against australia will be far too strong for new zealand. new zealand are a canny side, very understated, they play a clever way, they will make it tough for england but england won three knockout games, they beat new zealand and the way they lost, australia, absolutely incredible. they could do that to new zealand. they could do that to new zealand. they could do that to new zealand. they could blow new zealand away but new zealand beat india and i've a lwa ys new zealand beat india and i've always said, whoever beats and would win the world cup, both these teams have beaten the indian sides of this new zealand side, especially in these conditions, they won't be a blow over. kane williamson will get them scrapping and working hard. you've got to fancy it might be a close game today. every match played at lord's in this tournament so far has been won by the team batting first so what do you do if you win the toss? in these conditions? i think you've got to bat but if conditions stay as they are both ca pta i ns conditions stay as they are both captains wouldn't mind losing the
toss,it captains wouldn't mind losing the toss, it might do a little bit but ru ns toss, it might do a little bit but runs on the board in a world cup final, i think england can win either way, they can win setting and chasing coming new zealand can only win by setting the game. i've seen someone from the new zealand camp. jeremy. come over and join us. michael, actually, to be fair, has picked up new zealand as well saying what a canny side you have. is that right? do you feel like the underdog, do you feel worried? we like being underdogs, we love to have a quest, an obstacle. i think probably you would have said india are a stronger side than us, the same as england, we are not a great side but we find ways to win. and if this is not an arterial road out here, this page, you know, it's a b road, a bit slower, right? if it swings or moves off the pitch, and you can't drive a length ball quite so easily, we are in the game and if
we can drag england back from 400 which is a procession. and the celebrations. this is your second world cup final. it's great. that's another point. you make lots of these. anyway, so, if we can drag them back to a place where we are, we have gone through four quite tough games, close games and one might be luck, four ain't and we've got through a long tournament. people felt this was the fairest thing, we play each team. we still managed to get through but you were lucky, you're fortuitous to get that point against india. and we go and proceed to beat them so he was lucky? anyway, iwould proceed to beat them so he was lucky? anyway, i would say, proceed to beat them so he was lucky? anyway, iwould say, if proceed to beat them so he was lucky? anyway, i would say, if we start well in the first ten overs, if we can see off archer somehow and minimise damage and come otherwise, we could do and australia, you know?
and if we can pick upjason roy or johnny bairstow then we are ok. the fa cts johnny bairstow then we are ok. the facts are, on paper, 11 versus 11, england are a lot stronger, there's never been a game of sport one on a piece of paper at no matter how you react. i know england beat new zealand in the final group game but ta ke zealand in the final group game but take out that unlucky run out from williamson it could have been quite different. that day, england had to win, new zealand almost knew they we re win, new zealand almost knew they were already in the semifinals, the mentalities were different. this is a completely different game. kane williamson is the most understated player in the world. not many talk about him, he's a great, great player, very tactically clever captain. he will make it difficult for england today. thanks, guys, prediction? you're going to stick loyal, in your heart of hearts, honestly? the honest prediction oh...you honestly? the honest prediction oh you can say, can you? no, i can't! it's england. it's england.
england to win today. michael and jeremy, thank you very much, really enjoyed that. as michael said, sport is not written on paper, if it was serena williams may have won her eighth wimbledon title in wimbledon yesterday but it was over in an hour. simona halep took less than an hour to beat serena williams and deny her a record equalling 24th grand slam singles title. she beat williams in straight sets to claim her first title at the all england club, her second grand slam, becoming the first romanian to win the singles at the all—england club. it means she'll move up to number four when the world rankings come out on monday. it is something very special, my mother said that if i wanted to do something in special i would have to play the final at wimbledon, so the day came, so thank you to my mother.
meanwhile the british men's wheelchair doubles pair alfie hewett and gordon reid lost in straight sets tojoachim gerard and stefan olsson in the wimbledon final. fellow briton andy lapthorne was also defeated in straight sets by australia's dylan alcott later on centre there's another epic expected in the men's final. after beating rafa nadal on friday, roger federer now goes for a ninth wimbledon title against novak djokovic, a man who's beaten him at this stage twice before. i feel really good, you know. i must say, i recovered well after the match against rafa. it has not been a difficult tournament physically for me. important is just for me to really get up for that final, take the confidence i gained from this tournament so far and reallyjust remind myself we have one more match to go, one more and for that i need to be ready.
always dreamt of winning the wimbledon trophy, i have won it four times. it's the most unique final of any tournament in the world, it really is. it is such a sacred tennis club and the surface and just the stadium, everthing is very special and unique about it so i can't wait to step onto the court. and it's the british grand prix at silverstone on this very special day of sport. valtteri bottas beat his team—mate lewis hamilton to pole position by the tiniest of margins at the british grand prix. the finn beat the five time world champion byjust 6 thousandths of a second. hamilton was looking to secure his fifth consecutive pole at silverstone. mercedes locked out the front row for today's race at siverstone with ferrari's charles leclerc third. there was another crash for geraint thomas
at the tour de france, the defending champion finished in the pack on stage 8 but lost time on the leaders. he remains fifth, over a minute behind frenchman julian alaphilippe who reclaimed the yellowjersey. england's victory over scotland at the netball world cup in liverpool was soured by the news that layla guscoth will miss the rest of the tournament with a ruptured achilles. in the game itself 36—year—old rachel dunn scored an impressive 49 points in a dominant 70—34 victory. they'll play samoa later today as they try to top the group while scotland face uganda northern ireland picked up their first win of the tournament. after losing to the reigning champions australia, they got off the mark with a 67—50 victory over sri lanka there we are, back at lord's, very much coming to life in the last few
minutes, gates are open, the music is pumping, the restaurants and bars filling up, the activity on the pitch. they are rolling off some of the covers, the blue sky is coming up, the pavilion, beginning to fill up up, the pavilion, beginning to fill up here. hopefully we'll get under way on time, 10:30am start, the all—important way on time, 10:30am start, the all—importa nt toss way on time, 10:30am start, the all—important toss coming up at around five past ten. studio: looking forward to that. it's so exciting. the gates open. goodness knows what he'll be like at the end. it's been quite tense this morning as we watch the rainfall. absolutely. slightly further afield. here's helen with a look at this morning's weather — and notjust here in the uk but further afield, as tropical storm barry hits the south of the united states. big problems in the united states. tropical storm barry will be downgraded again but it's all about
the ring, not the wind strength. we classify these storms via their wind strength. it's the amount of rainfall we will keep seeing. the spiralling bands of rain, a source of moisture of the gulf of mexico and the warmth hence the concern for louisiana, mississippi, then into arkansas and tennessee. it keeps raining into the mississippi delta and because it was such a wet spring in that part of the united states, the river is already way above where it should be so we could see some really devastating flooding. back home, yes, we've had ourfair share of showery rain this morning in the east. it's been quite tense with mike at lord's already but for many other areas, it's been a cool but lovely sunny start. and we'll continue to see plenty of dry and fine weather butjust to bring you up—to—date on those showers, here they are, tracking their way gradually southwards. they are moving through quite quickly, the band of showery rain, hopefully as
we see, the blue skies coming through, it will materialise more widely across the south—east and hopefully crossing the rain into the far south of england and then a way it goes. so for the cricket, an improving picture. it will have cleared of course before wimbledon gets under way and it should be dry and fine at silverstone as well. the cloud attending to build up, coming and going, that's how it is for most of us, the showers clearing away. it will be completely bone dry because there's the potential that we get some sea breeze, the breeze coming in from the sea, being pushed up over the mountains causing some showers. that's most likely in the west but it will be isolated. further east, we've still got a bit ofa further east, we've still got a bit of a breeze coming in of east anglia, the south—east of england, tempering the feel of the day but i'm clutching at straws, for most of us it will feel worn injuly sunshine, most of us light breezes, some strong sunshine to be found. overnight, because winter is coming from the north—east we bring in some more cloud into eastern once again through the night but not as much
rain as we've seen this morning. it will make for a rather grey start potentially tomorrow but under starry skies it will be quite chilly, three or 4 degrees in the welsh valleys this morning. cool start forjuly tomorrow but the sunshine, magicaljuly sunshine, lovely, still strong, beware, getting to work and we see some fine weather melting this cloud away if you like across the east and burning through the cloud across scotland. like today, temperatures in the low 20s, probably nudging up a degree for scotland and northern ireland in the western fringes, held down a little bit by the cool breeze on the north sea coast. as for the rest of the week gradually starting to see high—pressure and fine weather being eroded by low pressure systems coming in from the atlantic, starting with scotland and northern ireland on tuesday we could see some showers coming in, most areas fine and dry, we lose the northerly breeze for east anglia and the south—east. temperatures popping up to the mid 20s. after that, it sta rts to the mid 20s. after that, it starts to become much more
u nsettled, starts to become much more unsettled, the weather system getting a little bit more rain on them, getting themselves together rather more as the high pressure relinquishes its grip. enjoy the sunshine if you see it today, most of us should. roger and nina, sunshine if you see it today, most of us should. rogerand nina, back to you. yesterday the women took centre stage, but today we'll find out who'll be crowned the men's wimbledon champion. roger federer takes on novak djokovic. federer has won the title more than any other man, but his opponent is seen by many as the favourite today. joining us from wimbledon is former british number one andrew castle. andrew, thank you, i know you've been waiting for us for ages, thank you for your patience. not at all, the rain has stopped. the drizzle came as a bit of a shock, and hear someone else arriving on a motorcycle as this place comes to life, but hopefully, if they get any rain it will be up in lord's and not down here and, mind you, we have a
roof if we needed. let's talk a little bit about the game yesterday, if we may. people in some ways it shouldn't be surprised, simona halep has been the world number one, she's won a has been the world number one, she's wona grand has been the world number one, she's won a grand slam before but it was a remarkable performance against serena williams. well, it's right to talk about simona halep first, she's finished the last two years as world numberone, i finished the last two years as world number one, i don't know why people are surprised she played so well. looked on the other end at serena williams, she did not produce a game, she didn't bind her big game or her sea game, she didn't bind her big game or hersea game, game, she didn't bind her big game or her sea game, she was hopeless yesterday and that is a shame for herand a real yesterday and that is a shame for her and a real shame for the crowd, the final took less than an hour. i think in many ways she won some of her previous six matches on reputation and on sheer power. but she was exposed yesterday which is a shame for her. three times she had a chance to equal record of margaret court, 24 grand slams and she will have to wait a bit further now but for simona halep, once she lost the
first three finals at grand slam level everyone cold her a choker, she won the last two and she looks every bit the champion. remember, she beat the story of these championships in a very calm manner, and that was young coco gauff. and she endeared herself to everyone when she spoke to sue barker afterwards. roger federer playing today, coming off the back of a really tough semifinal, will that be a factor in his match against novak djokovic? the match against rafael nadal? the match went to four sets, he said he hadn't played that much tennis. i didn't see his name on the practice sheet, perhaps he was working on his body and staying as limberas working on his body and staying as limber as possible. ahead of what is considered by many to be the greatest challenge in tennis which are seen novak djokovic down the other end are seen novak djokovic down the otherend and are seen novak djokovic down the other end and thinking you can actually beat him. he gets everything back. he can't defend at
the wing so beautifully, the backhand side, roger will find it difficult to attack, he hasn't beaten novak djokovic in four and a half years. this is a beautiful mansion prospect. i would love to see it go the distance. roger is the greatest defensive player of no question from me. on a grass court, the best of all time although novak may have a say in that but roger is going to have to elevate once again from the semifinal victory over rafael nadal and he's going to have to play even better. but you know what? he's been out there so many times, so as his opponent. i think they will throw everything at each other so with a bit of luck it will bea other so with a bit of luck it will be a beautiful final to watch. but i expect novak to win it. roger federer is 37. it is amazing that he's still at the very top of the game atan he's still at the very top of the game at an age when many players have long since retired. well, and also 32, 33, 34, this is when most
people go, novak and rafa or at that stage but they continue to want to play, to want to do at that stretching which is, to want to do the training, to hit the weights are to correctly and really think ten is the whole time. one thing i would say about roger, he is a celebrated athlete, all these athletes fly by private jets, they make hundreds of millions of pounds, in that way you understand why it's a great life but it does hurt and once you've got everything, how do you keep going? roger has been doing the right thing for a long time, flying with the jet, he's got great people around him and! jet, he's got great people around him and ijust think that they actually like hitting the ball. so i don't think there's any reason for nervousness today either player. i think they can throw the kitchen sink at each other because they've done all of this before and may they continue for many years because this area is completely different and i would say one thing about the tournament. we've seen the re—emergence of andy murray over the past three or four macro weeks, i think it can be a part of this at
the very highest levels till next year so that was an encouragement from the menstrual. interesting. andrew, banks so much for your time this morning, we are very grateful. and you're part of the commentary tea m and you're part of the commentary team for the men's final. and the men's final is on centre court at 2 o'clock. coverage starts on bbc one just before that. now it's been called the "poldark—factor". the bbc drama, which is based in cornwall, has become such a successful global brand that it's attracting tourists from all over the world. ahead of the new series, we caught up with a group of american fans who were visiting some of the locations used in the show. eleanor parkinson reports. what are you up to? daydreaming? the drama of poldark has captured the hearts of millions across the uk. there's the romance, the scenery, its swashbuckling hero... oh, and did i mention the romance? and the drama is notjust confined to cornwall
because behind me are a group from virginia in america and they are part of a growing band of global fans of poldark. the american fans are on a tour of just some of the locations that provided the tv series with its stunning backdrop and they haven't been left disappointed. i knew it would be beautiful but, honestly, it's breathtaking. every time you turn a corner, it's so lovely. you're very fortunate. i've always done a lot of reading about england and cornwall was a place that captured my imagination when i was just a young girl and so, being able to see that visually was just tremendous. i love it. and now you are here, is up to expectations? she sighs. i think itjust surpasses expectations. it is just staggeringly beautiful. the history... i knew nothing about this area. i love the fact that poldark himself, ross poldark, is pulling for the common man, even though he is an aristocrat. and the george character is such an incredible nemesis. and all of the casting
is so well done. after the mining heritage, it is back on the bus. next is the beach. the beach is a favourite spot for ross and demille sub. they can walk barefoot and indulge in a bit of romance. today they were just a few more people on the beach but they we re more people on the beach but they were still able to walk in the footsteps of their favourite characters. and get theirfeet footsteps of their favourite characters. and get their feet wet. just around the clip side which you can see, they filmed the shipwreck scenes. full dark as now i household name in many countries all over the world. and those making this poldark pilgrimage are also boosting the cou nty pilgrimage are also boosting the county ‘s tourism industry. maybe something in this brooding mining adventure that wasn't foreseen.
this is bbc news, i'm ben brown. the headlines at 9am. an act of "diplomatic vandalism" — more leaked memos from britain's former ambassador to washington suggest donald trump abandoned the iran nuclear deal in order to spite barack obama. a man is charged with the murder of kelly mary fauvrelle — the 26—year—old who was 8 months pregnant when she was fatally stabbed at home. one game from glory — england's cricketers prepare for the biggest game of their lives as they face new zealand in the world cup final. it isa it is a culmination of four years of ha rd it is a culmination of four years of hard work, dedication, a lot of planning and it presents a huge opportunity to go on and try and win a world cup.
