11:30 pm
the uk the weather forecast across the uk this week fairly straightforward, but that is not set to last. next week becomes more of a headache, that in a moment. enjoy the rest of the week if you can. drive a day, clear skies overnight, that will allow temperatures to fall away, so chilly early mornings. high pressure going to drive the weather story over the next few days due to a week, meandering jetstream at the moment, allowing that high—pressure to drift in and dominate throughout the working week. that means for tuesday, despite some strong winds in the far north of scotland and elsewhere, we keep some dry, sunny weather coming through. temperatures fairly uniform at around 12— 20 degrees. as we move through tuesday into wednesday, we will see a weak weather front starting to show its hand. it is drifting across the top of the high, producing more cloud and outbreaks of light rain. the high—pressure stays with the bulk of the country, so again, dry, settled and sunny. as the windfalls
11:31 pm
lighter, it will be a slightly better day in some respects in the far north of scotland. 10—20 the hi. moving out of wednesday into thursday, almost a repeat performance. a good deal of dry weather in the story and temperatures peaking at 20 or 21 degrees. moving into friday, it does look as though that high—pressure will drift just a look as though that high—pressure will driftjust a little bit further east, allowing for a subtle change in wind direction. it will start to drive up more warmth from the new continent. not just drive up more warmth from the new continent. notjust across england and were, there is potentialfor some of that warmth to stretch right gci’oss some of that warmth to stretch right across the country. so, despite early morning mist and fog slowly lifting away, again it is a dry story. some of that warmth will push its way up into scotland, and we could see highs of 21 degrees across aberdeenshire. highest value is likely of 23 degrees. all the time this weather front waiting in the wings, trying to push in. on
11:32 pm
saturday, the wind will swing more toa saturday, the wind will swing more to a southerly direction, so some of that warmth will start to come from iberia, and there will be a bit more moisture mixed in. so, more humidity potentially on saturday. again, dry story and we will see those temperatures peaking at 25 degrees. however, because of that moisture and humidity, we could, moving into the second half of the weekend, have the second half of the weekend, have the potential for a thundery breakdown. a lot of uncertainty as to the timing at the moment so you will need to keep abreast of the forecast, but there is potentialfor some sharp, thundery showers to develop through the latter stages of sunday afternoon. looking further ahead we will lose that week, meandering jetstream. it will strengthen and come from a stronger westerly direction, driving areas of low pressure. this is sitting across the south—west of the atlantic at the south—west of the atlantic at the moment, that is humberto.
11:33 pm
computer models never like this kind of energy from tropical moisture and it struggles to handle the detail, so it struggles to handle the detail, so you will have to be patient. it does look as though as we move into next week things will stay mild but turned increasingly unsettled, maybe even wet and windy in the far north and west. we'll keep you updated.
11:34 pm
hello, this is bbc news with me, reeta chakra barti. we hello, this is bbc news with me, reeta chakrabarti. we will look at the papers in a moment but first, the papers in a moment but first, the headlines: the prime minister has met the eu commission president for talks on brexit. he told the bbc everyone is fed up and he wants to get a deal. i think that they've had a belly
11:35 pm
full of all this stuff, you know? they want to develop a new relationship with the uk, they are fed up with these endless negotiations on endless delays, they've done it twice before to achieve what? after being booed by protesters, borisjohnson decided after being booed by protesters, boris johnson decided not after being booed by protesters, borisjohnson decided not to take pa rt borisjohnson decided not to take part inajoint borisjohnson decided not to take part in a joint statement with the prime minister of luxembourg, who went on to express his clear frustration with the progress on brexit. don't put the blame on us because 110w don't put the blame on us because now they don't know how to get out of this situation they put themselves in. nato says it's extremely concerned that tensions in the gulf will escalate after drone and missile strikes on oil facilities in saudi arabia at the weekend. two former british army soldiers have won a racial case against the ministry of defence.
11:36 pm
hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are james rampton, us tomorrow. with me are james ra m pton, features us tomorrow. with me are james rampton, features brighter for the independent and political strategist joe tanner. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in and they are dominated by one story. first to the financial times, and a picture of luxembourg's prime minister gesturing towards an empty podium after borisjohnson chose not to appear at after borisjohnson chose not to appearata after borisjohnson chose not to appear at a news conference due to noisy protesters. in reports of a spike in oil prices are following fears of a supply disruption in saudi arabia. metro has that photo of xavier bettel going it alone at an empty podium. it shows another picture of the protesters who caused the destruction. no wonder britain voted to quit the eu, the express
11:37 pm
says, and attacks the prime minister of luxembourg's speech, describing it as of luxembourg's speech, describing itasa of luxembourg's speech, describing it as a stage—managed anti—brexit rant. this is what the daily telegraph writes, describing the prime minister's a visit to the luxembourg prime minister as an ambush. the guardian says boris johnson was left humiliated and his claims are processed in the brexit negotiations lying in tatters. the times say boris was ambushed at the conference in an extraordinary break with protocol. and the daily mail leads on a story with smart metres, saying it's been delayed by four yea rs. saying it's been delayed by four years. the mirror has said gary lineker will take a wage cut after the controversy around salaries at the controversy around salaries at the bbc. let's start with that story that dominates all the papers this evening. let's go to the daily express, no wonder britain voted to
11:38 pm
quit the eu is its headline. games, what do you make of the daily express‘s treatment of this story? —— james. express‘s treatment of this story? -- james. playing into express's treatment of this story? -- james. playing into their hands, this story. the image of a very theatrical european prime minister wringing his hands and saying i'm no—lecturning, a british prime minister not turning up, classic daily mail flag—waving staff. this headline will sum up what all brexiteers are saying as they splutter into their earl grey tomorrow morning. it plays into this idea that the eu is very high—handed and arrogant. the express uses the word" deplorable" in the way it treats britain, but i would flip it and say how rude to be invited to a press c0 nfe re nce and say how rude to be invited to a press conference and not show up. you are snubbing your host and your
11:39 pm
making a statement that you don't ca re making a statement that you don't care what a european leader has two say to you, and he's turned from the incredible hulk into the incredible sulk. and he is turning against the tiny tax haven of luxembourg! there's a lot of info in there! the gift that keeps on giving! the front page of the guardian has the same photograph but a completely different treatment of it. it is a marvellous site seeing these incredible headlines and how different papers have treated it. there are reasons why the plans for two leaders are changing... it could be bad weather, it could be a problem with timings, for example. this is... it appears to me pretty unprecedented to have a situation where because allegedly of protests,
11:40 pm
the decision was taken for the prime minister not to stand next to the luxembourg leader. but then you have to question, given how angry he he got, you wish there was a fly on the wall to know what happened in that discussion. the luxembourg prime minister... they hadn't been together for that long to end up with this rant. obviously it appears he wasn't reading from a speech, he was making remarks where he talks about some of the stuff that came up over the weekend, the incredible hulk phrase used by borisjohnson, and actually this was a man clearly not happy. doesn't look like this was alljust because there was a refusal to go and do this press conference. it looks to be a bit more deep—rooted. conference. it looks to be a bit more deep-rooted. very bad first date basically! do you think they are going to see each other again?|j think are going to see each other again?” think they are going to block each other now. not sure that will happen
11:41 pm
now! it's so interesting, because there appeared to be genuine frustration and anger on behalf of the luxembourg prime minister but on the luxembourg prime minister but on the other hand there is a feeling of it being stage—managed. the other hand there is a feeling of it being stage-managed. the only beneficiary in this country will be dominic cummings, because it will play to his idea that the eu is the enemy, it is very standoffish and it won't do anything to compromise, to help britain, and he'll be delighted, cummings, the downing street adviser, john claire juncker‘s statement that the british proposals have not yet been made as relegated to the fourth paragraph —— jean—claude juncker. that will delight the british government because on any other day that will because on any other day that will be the main story, butjohnson says that we are making these wonderful plans but they haven't been set yet, the e—mail must have got lost in the ether, that would be the real story on any other day but this theatrical intervention by bettel has made the "arrogance of the eu" the story and will be fuel to the brexit fire. jo,
11:42 pm
you were laughing in the headlines earlier where bettel is struggling to find a word for the situation in britain. he was clearly wanting to say something else. he was clearly wanting to say something else, i don't know what word but clearly he wanted to say something else. wouldn't have ended well! not at all. this guy is clearly a hero or hate figure depending on where you sit on the debate. for most, if he got on the tube in london, no—one would know who he was but now he would know who he was but now he would be either mobbed with those waving those eu flags we've seen outside parliament or thrown a lot of rotten tomatoes at. he could be in the next three years of i'm a celebrity. . . get in the next three years of i'm a celebrity...get me out of here!, he will be in the jungle celebrity...get me out of here!, he will be in thejungle in december! celebrity...get me out of here!, he will be in the jungle in december!” wonder what he would get for the trials, though! boris johnson would give him a lot of which city grabs! i'm going to ask you about the
11:43 pm
fourth paragraph on the guardian front page, though, which is the conundrum. it is the what is really going on. jean—claude juncker has said to boris johnson going on. jean—claude juncker has said to borisjohnson that he is waiting for proposals on the irish backstop. the —— prime minister said he is cautiously optimistic but we don't know what's going to happen. there were some words from bettel in one of the papers, i have forgotten where, but he says... there is a phrase where he says, "we've heard lots of words but none of them have been written down", which ultimately, the plan, as the eu saw it and merkel had indicated this as well, within 30 days or something, essentially, "come on, then, if you think you've got something better, show us what you've got". there's
11:44 pm
been talk about technological solutions and things we can do to deal with the backstop in particular, which is obviously this really big issue, and the problem has been either britain has decided we're not going to show what it is all we don't know. where left in the dark as to which it is, i've got a suspicion as to which it is, because there's nothing appearing, we don't know which of those outcomes it's likely to be. day 26 of the 30 days borisjohnson said he would need to flesh out a new proposal for angela merkel. i do agree with the cartoon, an aide coming to the prime minister saying bad news, the empty podium in luxembourg is writing its memoirs. everyday they hit the nail on the head. this bizarre idea that we're going to show our homework to brussels in case they rubbish them but how could you do a negotiation if the opposition don't know what your position is? it is complete insanity!
11:45 pm
let's look at a couple of the other front pages, which do have the same photograph. interesting to see how differently they've treated it. the front page of the metro. this is burying protesters forced the prime minister to snub eu press conference. interesting verb. was he forced to? let's go to the front page of the daily telegraph, luxembourg laughs in johnson's page of the daily telegraph, luxembourg laughs injohnson‘s face. james, you rather liked the first paragraph of the telegraph story, didn't you? we all tell stories through our own prism. i see everything through a remain prism and the daily telegraph sees the world through a brexit prism. this first paragraph is a classic piece of bias, which is very over, which is the talks fell into chaos as he was ambushed by the leader of the eu's smallest country. it isn't, it is malta, but to keep up the
11:46 pm
hyperbole about how disgraceful the treatment of our prime minister is and then they say he's mocked by one of brussels' most senior figures. and then they say he's mocked by one of brussels' most seniorfigures. as you said earlier, jo, how can he be from the smallest country but also one of the most senior figures? and someone one of the most senior figures? and someone you've one of the most senior figures? and someone you've never one of the most senior figures? and someone you've never heard of who could get on the tube without anyone knowing who he is. but if he went on to the tube, he would get booed or applause, mr bettel, a very famous face! it's interesting how the whole country sees the world through their bias. a total split down the middle. either remain or leave. it's become very toxic, and that's one side of it, even though i'm a passionate remainer, which really stresses me, the whole level of debate has become so vitriolic. almost on twitter, people's first move is to make a death threat. it's become extreme, the level of dialogue, and i really lament that and it's terrible we
11:47 pm
can't have better dialogue. the treatment that the papers have put to this story shows how divided we still are. exactly. i made the point about christmas dinner, you could pick a family and you could have granddad might be the daily express, who quite angry about it all, and you might get someone else more reasoned who would represent another paper's view. it's really interesting, one small thing to happen today... relatively small, a press conference in luxembourg would probably not have warranted the attention it has now got. yet it's dominated all of the papers. that's a very good point. i'm sure certain families will have separate christmas dinners this year. i have heard friends who say i can't mention brexit to my family and friends because it always ends in a massive row and people storm out. it's that incendiary as an issue. wait until after october the 31st.
11:48 pm
it will all be fine! if there's not enough turkey or we've got a problem getting brussels sprouts. are we going to stop having brussels sprouts because of this? christmas dinner could be interesting this year. christmas dinner is off! another reason not to go for no—deal! another reason not to go for no-deal! i'm moving you off brexit now, too scary! what is the native food of luxembourg? a massive blancmange! that tells us all we need to know! off brexit, the front page of the times. jo? this is an interesting story. the times launched a clean air for all campaign earlier this year, this is featured, they've been calling for a live pollution monitor in every postcode and there's a new website that's been started up, too,
11:49 pm
launched by the central office for interest, a not—for— profit launched by the central office for interest, a not—for—profit campaign, and they say they believe housebuyers could and they say they believe housebuye rs could be and they say they believe housebuyers could be encouraged to seek discounts of up to wendy % by checking this new website, addresspollution.org. they think house prices will be affected. they are saying people will use the figures to take a view about the genuine price of a house compared to what an estate agent said —— 20%. if we what an estate agent said —— 20%. if we get to the stage of this kind of data being publicly available, this could naturally affect house prices because people are becoming so aware and so tuned into the issue of pollution. we've had cases about schools and high levels of pollution around schools. this particular story talks about how dirty air cut short 40,000 lives in the uk each year. it's interesting, we used to talk about things like smoking and passive smoking in particular and
11:50 pm
the perils of that. now we've gone completely in a different direction. dirty air generally, which is caused by other pollutants, such as cars, for example. there's the whole issue about fires and wood—burning stoves et cetera. we've moved in a completely different direction. fair play to the times, they are keeping hold of this issue and they genuinely believe in the environment and pollution remains an important issue and they're focusing on it as a result. it's a great story and it's a rival paperfor me. it's a great story and it's a rival paper for me. they've it's a great story and it's a rival paperfor me. they've identified an issue that matters to people here. they are predicting, and it's amazing to think, that house prices in chelsea, one of the poshest areas in london, might fall by up to £250,000 because of these reports. this is an incredible statistic: dirty air costs £20 billion a year in this countryjust in healthcare. that's an astonishing figure. we all
11:51 pm
sadly no children who have suffered very bad asthma and other breathing difficulties because of polluted air, so if there's a data site that can help you with this, like some pa rents can help you with this, like some parents choose their house according to the schools or parks or something like that, so if they are not using it according to the clean air, it could be revolutionary. a quick look at the front page of the daily mail. we haven't got much time left. jo, the story about smart metres. is really interesting. the story is essentially the rollout of smart metres... the previous conservative administration, theresa may tackled theissue administration, theresa may tackled the issue about pricing around energy and the big issue... we've had debates about switching... it was believed smart meters would help people understand better their
11:52 pm
energy usage and actually the devices have been plagued by a series of glitches. it's been said it is costing customers far more and there's been practical issues. we discussed your downstairs cupboard and where your smartmeter should go stop it if i hurry back now i can do it! this is interesting, they are trying to get the technology right but there's companies talking about wider usage and fascinating ways we can monitor our usage of energy but also help us live better. jo, james, thank you. that's it for the papers tonight. you can see the front pages of the papers every night on the website. if you miss the programme any evening, you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you again, james and jo. bye—bye.
11:53 pm
hello. plenty on offer for both teams in the premier league match, one hoping to climb out of the bottom three and the other seeking to break into the top three. in the end aston villa managed their task, but might have had more on what proved to be a goalless night against west ham at villa park. nick parrott reports. when the lights come on, aston villa raised their game. their only league win of the season came on a friday night against everton and wesley was the hero then but he couldn't quite rise to the occasion at home to west ham united. villa spent big in the summer ham united. villa spent big in the summer but started the day in the bottom three and something doesn't seem bottom three and something doesn't seem quite right. they were causing each other more problems than the opposition. word checked this incident between tyrone mings and his colleague but took no action.
11:54 pm
moments later el ghazi was fortunate to continue, eventually recovering from this clash. villa's hopes of getting a result were boosted midway through the second half with this red card. not the cards his boss, manuel pelligrini, wanted to on his 66th birthday. far from manuel pelligrini, wanted to on his 66th birthday. farfrom ruining his day, his hammers started hitting back, taking the game to their lead but both sides lacked quality with jack greenish ruining the best chance to end the stalemate. we were hoping for a better start stop e3 and one draw. felt like we should have got the win today but that can happen to anyone. as soon asa that can happen to anyone. as soon as a team goes down to ten men, the game opens up a bit and think we need to be more deadly in front of goal, as i said, and as soon as we do and is well click into place i hope. wsl champions arsenal have started the season with two wins out of two.
11:55 pm
they beat manchester united by 1—1 goal to nil tonight, butt the away side had to wait a long time for the break through. united's goalkeeper mary earps was inspired for 85 minutes of this match, the highlight this brilliant double save from vivianne meeademar. with time running out though arsenal finally got the winner through danielle van de donk. united have lost both of their tough opening fixtures 1—0 now following their opening weekend defeat to manchester city. david de gea has signed a new 4—year contract at manchester united. the keeper was in the last season of his current contract having joined from atletico madrid in 2011, since when he's played more than 360 times for united. de gea had long been linked to a return to spain but will now be at old trafford until 2023. frank lampard says he's excited about leading chelsea in the champions league for the first time. they're involved in the opening night of the competition tomorrow when they play spanish side valencia at stamford bridge. it's a competition lampard won seven years ago as a player, when they beat bayern munich on penalties in the final, and he says watching it from the dugout as manager will be special.
11:56 pm
it is the ultimate in club football for me in terms of competitive club football, and there's something about nights at stamford bridge, there's something about the champions league music, those memories that i have and we have here at chelsea. i want to experience on this side of the fence, so i will be happy taking the tea m fence, so i will be happy taking the team out knowing that what matters is results and taking the team out against good opposition. i'm excited. meanwhile, champions liverpool trained this morning before heading to italy where they start the defence of their title tomorrow night against napoli. striker divock 0rigi didn't travel, he's out with an ankle injury. leinster centre robbie henshaw is almost certainly out of ireland's world cup opener against scotland next sunday, but he will stay with the squad in japan. he felt tightness in his thigh after a training session and went for a scan yesterday. ireland go into the world cup injapan as the world's top—ranked side and they say they're still hopeful that henshaw will be able to play a part in the tournament. that's all the sport for now.
11:57 pm
a fairly quiet start across many parts of the british isles at the best sunshine found its way to the north and that settled look to proceedings is all thanks to that area of high pressure but you'll notice it's squeezing into low pressure over scandinavia. the jetstrea m pressure over scandinavia. the jetstream in between is full to the north of the british isles due to the high pressure in the atlantic, taking cold air down through the north sea to the heart of europe. the breeze in the surface areas will be noticeable down the north sea coasts, but elsewhere it is a decent day with plenty of sunshine on offer and variable amounts of cloud and at its thickest haps in the north—west of scotland. may be some rain during the latter part of the day and on wednesday, not much change. the high pressure forcing the north westerlies away to the north sea. the clouds thickening up at times to
11:58 pm
give some rain across the top of scotla nd give some rain across the top of scotland but elsewhere, as i say, a decent day with plenty of sunshine and a high of 20. on wednesday into thursday, the chance of mist and fog forming as the high really dominates across the british isles. thursday, top temperature again 20 or 21 in the south. bit of a difference on friday, the high pressure centre is away on the continent and that will allow us on its western ‘s like at this stage to pick up on some of the warmth from the continent and that flowy of air is drier, so no issues with mist and fog. temperature is beginning to respond as a consequence, a high of 23. 20 degrees to be had in aberdeen. not a deal of difference as we go into saturday with the high pressure keeping the atlantic fronts at bay but one thing to watch, thunderstorms are brewing over iberia moving through france during the day and we might find one or two
11:59 pm
clipping into the far south—west to finish your day on saturday, but saturday will be a gloriously warm day with a lot of sunshine around away from the south—west and a high of 25. sunday, different kettle of fish. by this stage, the high will be sufficiently far away to allow the showers and thunderstorms to work their way widely across the british isles on what's going to be a close and sultry kind of day.
12:00 am
welcome to newsday, i'm kasia madera in london. the headlines: boos for borisjohnson as the prime minister of luxembourg tells him brexit‘s become a "nightmare". don't put the blame on us because they don't know how to get out of this... situation. he put themselves president trump says it looks like iran was responsible for the attack that halved saudi oil production. but he insists he doesn't want war. i'm rico hizon in singapore. also in the programme: the human cost of the world's deadliest conflict.
