being a firefighter is not a job, it isa being a firefighter is not a job, it is a calling. not everyone can do what a firefighter does, especially what a firefighter does, especially what they did on 9/11. entering buildings when everyone else is running out, know they might not make it out themselves, yet they continue to do what they were called upon to do and saved many lives. as we all know, many firefighters did not make it out. my son was one of them. he left behind his wife, two—year—old son, but his spirit lives within his children and he would be so proud of them today. while we are humbled by his actions and the actions of the first

1:54 pm
attend a ceremony later at the pentagon as the us commemorates the nearly 3000 people who lost their lives 18 years ago today. returning to brexit here. a very busy day in politics. just to bring you more details about the supreme court hearing. all of this following on from the court of session in edinburgh this morning. it is ruling that the suspension of parliament is illegal. more details coming from our correspondence about what to expect next tuesday and we are hearing that the supreme court has confirmed that the combined appeals about the prorogation of parliament will be held next tuesday by nine out of the 12 justices. and we're hearing that the decision to appoint a nine strong panel reflects the
1:55 pm
gravity of the case and the importance of the outcome to the uk's constitution. that hearing next tuesday will led by the president of the court, along with lord reid and lord care. that will be watched extraordinarily closely, of course. that following on from the judgment in edinburgh this morning and all the calls, the political calls, we have heard about since then with mps in various parties seeing westminster, the westminster parliament should now be recalled as a result of that decision. much more to come on that front tpm and from washington and new york as well. we will post right now and catch up with the weather. —— from 2pm. good afternoon. two different ex—tropical weather systems have taken control of our weatherfor the middle part of this week. today, we are dealing with the remnants of what was hurricane dorian.
1:56 pm
it is making for a rather windy day. you can see this area of low pressure pushing in to the north of the british isles. certainly not a hurricane any more. this frontal system bringing patchy rain in the south. behind me, the remnants of tropical storm gabrielle. and that is tomorrow's weather maker. but for the rest of this afternoon, for most of us, it is a mixture of sunny spells and showers. the showers are most widespread across the western side of scotland. brisk winds. those are the gusts you can expect for the rest of today. still the remnants of a weather front bringing cloud and patchy rain into the five south of england right through the afternoon. temperature wise, we are looking at highs of 15 to 21 celsius. through this evening and tonight, most areas will be dry and showers in the north tend to fade away. we will see some clear spells here and they are. it is going to turn quite cloudy, murky in parts of wales and the south—west of england. and remember that next weather maker i showed you, that is going to introduce cloud and rain into northern ireland and western scotland. here we have the remnants of what was tropical storm gabrielle, bringing outbreaks of rain, in association with these weather fronts. tucked in between the front, remember this area has come from the tropics.
1:57 pm
it is going to feel rather humid briefly. so through tomorrow, many of us across england and wales will start off as some spells of sunshine. cloud increasing through the morning. and then we see our outbreaks of rain pushing in across scotland and northern ireland into northern england and parts of wales through the afternoon. it does then brighten up towards the far north—west. it is another fairly windy day. perhaps not quite as windy as it is today. and the evidence of that humid air you can see from those temperatures — 22, 23, maybe 2a celsius in the south—east. always cooler and fresher towards the north and the west. and friday will certainly bring a fresher feel for all of us. but for most, it's looking fine, with lots of sunshine. some showery rain affecting western scotland and that fesher feel, with temperatures of 18 to 21 celsius. as we head into the weekend, well, high pressure is going to dominate for most of us. that means plenty of dry weather. temperatures will start to climb as well. frontal up towards the north. we will see some outbreaks of rain, particularly across the north of scotland. quite windy as well. further south in the sunshine,
1:58 pm
temperatures climbing perhaps up to 25 celsius.

2:00 pm
hello, you're watching afternoon live — i'm simon mccoy. today at two: demands for the recall of parliament — after scotland's highest civil court rules its suspension was unlawful. we, as politicians, are calling for parliament to be recalled so we can get on scrutinising what this government is up to. if it were to be the case that the government had misled the queen about the reasons for suspending parliament and the motives for it, that would be a very serious matter indeed. indeed, in my view, it would then be at the moment for mrjohnson to resign. as more migrants are spotted trying to cross the channel — it's claimed people smugglers use threats about brexit to pressure them to make the perilous journey. changes to immigration rules will allow overseas students
