‘on, talent. japan slanted earlier on, there mistake brutally punished. pressure, 20th in the world, had a shock lead. japan were down by seven but they hit back almost immediately, and in some style. quick feet and quicker hand setting up quick feet and quicker hand setting up the score. russia struggled to keep up, matsushima look to put japan into the lead. a closer look revealed he had lost control. no try, said nigel owens. but there was no keeping him out for long, again he found space, this time there was no doubt. japan led by five at half—time. that game is continuing in tokyo, japan heavy favourites against the lowest ranked side in the competition. they had their result tested but improved in the second half, scoring another try, peter labuschagne early in the second half and going over for about

1:32 pm
and the less of a voice yorkshire and lincolnshire. they're given today. temperatures widely into the low rallies are taking place across britain: this is the scene live at the demonstration 20s, we are already seeing higher temperatures in the grampians, 23 or in the scottish capital. 24. eventually some cloud could work a race against time for thoms cook — into eastern scotland overnight, on the holiday firm must find 200 million pounds to stay in business. new brexit talks in brussels — the whole it will be a trying night but is a deal any closer? with clear skies and not as cold as the past couple of nights. —— it there is still a lot of work to do will be a dry night. high pressure but there is a common purpose to brings the sunshine over the past secure a deal and recognition in the few days, heading out into europe, capitals and the foreign allowing winds to pick up. a southerly wind sees the temperature is rising because the high is moving away, eventually the weather front will edge from the south—west and change the weather, especially saturday night into sunday. ahead of that could increase on the far south—west of england and wales, eventually into northern ireland. elsewhere, dry, lots of sunshine,
1:33 pm
noticeable south to south—easterly bris, lifting the temperatures across many parts of england and wales. 2425 degrees, but make the most, because things will change. —— 24 or 25. showers arriving tomorrow from the selfless content heavy and injury. -- from the selfless content heavy and injury. —— arriving tomorrow from the south—west. north—eastern scotla nd the south—west. north—eastern scotland dry, a spell of rain cheers up scotland dry, a spell of rain cheers up later in wales. temperatures could be 20 to 23 ahead of the bands of rain, but that will bring a change and it could be quite heavy. heading into next week, you could argue we need rain across the midlands and eastern england. it looks much more unsettled. cooler, windier with showers or longer spells of rain. many thanks, darren. i want to firstly thank god. i want to invite my mum up, i want to invite my mum up onto stage.
1:34 pm
you're watching bbc news, the time is1.30pm. i'm olly foster, at the bbc sport centre. the rugby world cup is underway injapan, we are nearing the end of the first match of the tournament. the hosts taking on russia. let's cross live to the tokyo stadium, our sports correspondent katy gornall is there. katy, japan had a bit of a shaky start but they've recovered well enough. certainly looks like they are heading for a win. we spoke about the pressure england were under as hosts for years ago and it seems like at the start of this opening gamejapan like at the start of this opening game japan were like at the start of this opening gamejapan were nervous too. and you can understand why. there is no pressure like the pressure to enjoy your own party. has been all of hype
1:35 pm
around the country and the world cup. a few mistakes from them. the shop opening try from russia, the lowest ranked side in the competition, no one saw that coming the way they started this game. but japan have been buoyed by some incredible support here in the tokyo stadium. it was really a sea of red and white inside the stadium and gradually they got themselves back in the game and had much skill, too pace, too pace for russia. they were improved in the second half, we had a try from the number seven. you need to have plenty of paste outrun him. afew need to have plenty of paste outrun him. a few minutes ago, a huge cheer from the stadium as he completed his hat—trick. it seems that japan lead 30-10 at the hat—trick. it seems that japan lead 30—10 at the moment. well on their way to a very morale boosting win in this opening game of the world cup. we don't expect japan to this opening game of the world cup. we don't expectjapan to win this
1:36 pm
tournament but we know that they can make it special and that is really would be helped by this opening game win which it looks like they will get. many thanks indeed. no matter the sport, there are a lwa ys no matter the sport, there are always people leaving before the final whistle. about five minutes left to play in that game. we've had some home nations team news today, they're all in action over the next few days, two of them play each other on sunday. ireland have named their side to face scotland in yokohama. it's an inexperienced back—three, jordan larmour comes in at full—back for rob kearney who has a calf problem. keith earls is also out. they're missing 170 caps from those two alone and as for scotland, sam johnson will play alongside duncan taylor at centre for only the second time, but it's an experienced side with stuart hogg, sean maitland and tommy seymour re—uniting in the back three. england have named their strongest possible side to face tonga on sunday in saporro.
1:37 pm
captain owen farrell plays at centre alongside manu tuilagi. george ford is fly half. so how is the head coach looking forward to the tournament? the world cup is like a roller—coaster. we are at the top of the ride now looking down. everyone is nervous and excited, you get down the first slope and you're not quite sure if you're going to throw up or hang on! and you have to adapt to that the players have equipped themselves to ride the roller—coaster because there is gonna be some turns, some accidents, there will be some fun. and we want to enjoy all of those things that come along and the team is equipped to handle it. jofra archer was one of the stars of england's summer, only making his debut four months ago. he's been rewarded with a central contract. he was their leading wicket—taker at the world cup which they won
1:38 pm
and he also had a very good test series against australia. he has been given a contract for all forms of the game. rory burns has been given just a test contract but archer's inclusion was never in doubt. i thinkjofra is capable of anything. i chatted with his dad at the oval and he thought he would hit 100 mph next year and i said i would take that! but it's important we look after him, it's not easy to bowl that pace consistently, and he is a fine asset for the team. i'll have more for you in the next hour. let's get more on our top story now that millions we have been from hearing from the brexit secretary, stephen barclay,
1:39 pm
this is what he had to say a few minutes ago. we had serious detailed discussions today with michel barnier and his team. discussions today with michel barnierand his team. a discussions today with michel barnier and his team. a common purpose, we both want a deal and a very clear message has been given by the president and jean—claude juncker. the meeting overran which signals a fact that we were getting into the detail and would have further details next week. jean—claude juncker has told further details next week. jean—claudejuncker has told sky news that a deal as possible. do you believe that? yes i do. it is why we are working so hard. it is why in cyprus the day before yesterday, and luxembourg on monday, both sides wa nt to luxembourg on monday, both sides want to see a deal and we're working ha rd want to see a deal and we're working hard on that. the technical teams will meet again early next week to continue working on that detail and i think there is a shared desire, reflected in the meeting today, to secure a deal because we both recognise that a deal is in the
1:40 pm
interest of both sites. no one wants to see a no deal, it would be disruptive for both sides so there isa disruptive for both sides so there is a shared sense of purpose to get a deal over the line. in terms of your new paper, the irish deputy prime minister said we are very far from ideal. and the problem for the irish is that what you are picking forward requires them to take a leap of faith. you are telling them to go forward with it and we will deal with it after brexit? commission themselves have recognised the difficulties but what is clear from the statements from the irish government is that like the uk government, they want to see a deal done. there is a common hope in london and dublin and anti—are in brussels to see a deal over the line andi brussels to see a deal over the line and i think the fact that the meeting overran today, we we re that the meeting overran today, we were getting into the detail, the prime minister and president task and expected to meet
1:41 pm
in the us —— un makes week. we're working very hard to secure that. the you understand the difficulties they irish might have interesting what you have to say?” they irish might have interesting what you have to say? i think the discussions to set out what would work, that is why the technical teams at the meeting, that is why they will meet again next week, to set out that detail and ensure that we move forward together and secure a deal. you have been brexit secretary for some time, is the mood at the moment different to how it was weeks ago, a few months ago?” was weeks ago, a few months ago?|j think was weeks ago, a few months ago?” think there is still a lot of work to do, but there is a common purpose to do, but there is a common purpose to secure a deal recognition in the capitals, the foreign ministers i have spoken to want to see no deal avoided, they want the teams to reach a deal. there is a clear message from presidentjean—claude juncker and from the prime minister that a deal is doable. at the same time, there is significant work
1:42 pm
still to do but there are serious discussions taking place, we are moving forward with momentum, talks will continue next week between the technical teams and it is important we deliver a deal because that is in the interest of the united kingdom and, indeed, in the interest of the european union as we move forward to a strong future relationship which is where we all want to go. stephen barclay reporting on his talks with michel barnier, saying they have a shared desire, a shared sense of purpose to get a brexit deal over the line.
1:43 pm
the climate protests today have taken place across the world. there are hundreds of protesters here, climate change, climate activists who have come out into the middle of nairobi. they are marching towards the government offices. they have a petition to present there. a number of issues they want to highlight here in kenya — protection of water towers, prevention of deforestation, as well as asking the government to stop a project to exploit coal for the first time in this country. they say that coal energy is not clean and that is not the way kenya should be going. here in africa, the impact of climate change is already being felt, even though it contributes significantly less to climate change itself.
1:44 pm
we are seeing more recurrent droughts, particularly in southern africa. it means people cannot get food, their livelihoods as farmers are threatened. as well as energy problems, a lot of hydroelectric power depends on rivers and the water levels, when they fall, it means that they cannot have electricity. and we are already seeing rationing of electricity in several countries — malawi, zimbabwe, south africa — because of that. however, in the north, ethiopia, for instance, is already making strides towards conserving the environment. just this year, they have planted 350 million trees in one day, so they are showing it can be done and how the climate can be preserved. this was the scene in sydney earlier today, where tens of thousands
1:45 pm
of children took to the streets. they were calling for australia, which is the world's largest exporter of coal, to take more drastic action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. these people explained why they were taking action. the younger a person is, the more that the change in climate will impact them as they grow and the less of a voice they are given today. considering we have such a short amount of time to turn this issue around, it's young people at the forefront of the conversation because they are impacted more than anyone else. i think this is the most important issue of our time and i'm here for my children's future. i think it is that important. greta thunberg — the swedish teenager who started the schools strike for climate change movement just over a year ago — tweeted from new york this morning. she called the pictures from australia's strikes "incredible" and asked activists across the world to share their pictures.
1:46 pm
donald trump has denied a report alleging he made a promise to a foreign leader which may have beeen the president of ukraine. the washington post reported that an intelligence official filed an official complaint because they were so concerned by what president trump had said — perhaps multiple times. the report has caused outrage amongst democrats in congress who are demanding more information. gregg miller broke the story for the washington post and he explained why the president's remarks caused an intelligence official so much concern. just a really... extraordinary development. i spoke with a number of american intelligence officials today, who said they could never recall a circumstance where the president, himself, was the subject of this kind of scrutiny. he has a track record that is working against him, this has triggered an almost
1:47 pm
constitutional fight over who and which branch of government is entitled to this information. congress exercises and important oversight role, over us agencies, it isa oversight role, over us agencies, it is a check over their power and so congress feels entitled to know about what is mentioned in this whistle—blower complaint that the nations spy chief as sitting on his desk. but the white house has argued thatis desk. but the white house has argued that is not the case, this is privileged information involving the president's i bit communications and that it should not be shared with l. —— private communications. i mean, i have written stories about his disclosure of classified information to russian officials in the oval office. and he has, you know, repeatedly gotten into fights with his intelligence agencies,
1:48 pm
often siding with autocrats including vladimir putin, the saudi crown prince, and the leader of north korea. over what his spy agencies tell him. in a moment we'll have all the business news, but first the headlines on bbc news. the brexit secretary has held talks in brussels with the eu chief exit negotiator, saying a deal can be done. i warning that almost one in five pupils is leaving education without basic qualifications. i'm ramzan karmali, in the business news. as you've been hearing, thomas cook is racing to get hold of more rescue funds. the travel company could fall
1:49 pm
into administration this weekend, unless the it finds an extra £200 million. rbs is the first of the uk's big four banks to be led by a woman. it's named alison rose as its new chief executive. she joined the bank 27 years ago, as a graduate trainee and will replace ross mcewan in november. and she'll be paid more than him. her annual salary has been set at £1.1 million. and climate change commitments. some of the world's largest firms have promised big—spending on green energy plans. amazon has pledged to be carbon neutral by 2040 and google says it will make record renewable energy purchases. those announcements coincide with today's "climate strike" day, with millions taking part across the globe. let's stick with climate change. in the past some firms have been accused of making big statements about their green policies which critics say have very little substance — what's been dubbed as greenwashing.
1:50 pm
to get more on this, i'm joined by eddie hammerman, from the pr and branding agency, the 10 group. how damaging is it to the firm's brand if they aren't seen to be acting authentically? the issue is massive. looking around the world at the 5000 demonstrations which have been taking place, brands now realise they have to wake up to this. some have been doing a lot already whilst others are slightly behind which could lead to some brands probably overplaying designer green credentials which is unacceptable. but there is another issue here. the pace of change is so quick that things are happening every day. just from these protests from now to last year, brands are playing catch up. the ones which will do well or ones with a clear message. it is difficult for the consumer to understand which are the ones which are genuinely green and ones which are genuinely green and
1:51 pm
ones which are overplaying their hand. in terms of branding, which is your area of expertise, you say consumers might be confused, but how damaging is it if brand does this? authenticity is everything. we want to know that when we buy a product that money is in some way doing some good for the world and millennial is, that is really important for them. some brands doing it really well, patagonia, the outdoor brand, closed their stores to allow staff to go out and join protests. they donate 1% of their profits to causes since 1995. newer brands such as bertens, a surfing brand in the us, not only closed at their website but we directed people to the climate change website. that creates a real deep connection with your audience
1:52 pm
and could, in turn, have a bounce on their profits. can amazon really be carbon neutral in 20 years? no one is going to argue with amazon on saying some big things, 100,000 new electric vehicles, reforestation programmes, a commitment byjeff bezos to move from the middle of the pack to the front of the pack. i think the issue is that there has been a discrepancy about what they are saying at the highest level and what they are doing on the ground. they did not allow amazon staff who wa nt to they did not allow amazon staff who want to go out and protest, they did not allow that to happen. i think thatis not allow that to happen. i think that is an issue because brands need to be authentic. the ones that succeed and the ones that have a clear message are the ones that are going to win the hearts and minds of the customers of the future. thank you very much indeed. thank you. the publisher's association are today highlighting how much more expensive audio ebooks are compared to their hardback counterparts.
1:53 pm
in its axe the reading tax campaign, the pa claim that, because vat doesn't have to be paid on traditional books, but does on digital versions, those who rely on them, like the blind of partially sighted, are being penalised. they've taken the shortlist for the booker prize as an example, and claim that to buy digital versions of the list will cost 51% more than hard copies. the home rentals site airbnb plans to list on stock exchanges next year, in what is expected to be one of the highest—profile ipos of 2020. the californian firm is facing criticism for hollowing out communities in popular destinations and city governments around the world are exploring ways to curb its use. this week, the company said second quarter revenue reached £800 million but didn't say whether it had made a profit. lastly, there's a special feature on the bbc business website today on the rise of virtual internships. that's digital work experience that can be done remotely — anywhere you please — even overseas, as long as you have a good internet connection. physical internships are often unpaid and can involve huge
1:54 pm
travel and rental costs. virtual internships can help to break down some of these barriers. a quick look at the markets now, thomas cook was down over 20% at one point, royal royal bank of scotland is up. that is the business news. here in the uk, the winner of the 2019 mercury prize for music has been announced and it's gone to british rapper dave. his album, psychodrama, looks at issues of race, class and grief. it's been called the "boldest british rap album in a generation". here's the moment dave won, and brought his mum up on stage with him. i want to firstly thank god.
1:55 pm
i want to invite my mum up, i want to invite my mum up onto stage. cheering and applause. now it's time for a look at the weather. for many of us, a fine day with few exceptions. we started with mist and fog patches. most of us had sunny weather, but a little bit of cloud coming in through east anglia which was still lingering around. sunnier skies for shetland and across—the—boa rd temperatures getting into the high teens, low 20s. 24 inland aberdeenshire. it will continue to be windy around the coastline is for the headlands of cornwall, gusts of wind of 50 mph which will continue
1:56 pm
into the night time and saturday as well. otherwise, it will be a breezy kind of night. not as much mist and fog as we have seen recently. a few patches around, it will still be quite chilly in the countryside, temperatures getting down to the low single figures. for saturday, south—east winds, coming up from france will boost temperatures even further. saturday, a lot of dry weather, a lot of sunny weather, early morning mist and fog clearing quickly, but showers could break out later in the day across western parts. before they arrive, look at these temperatures. 24 cardiff, 25 london, 22 edinburgh. it will feel warm in that sunshine. further changes in the picture as we head through the rest of the weekend. the weather front eventually will stagger its way across the uk, showers or thunderstorms initially working in but then a more potent
1:57 pm
band of rain will work into the west as we go on into the night. from there on sunday, the rain will push northwards and eastwards, a degree of uncertainty about how far north it will get but the best chance of staying dry will be across the far north—east of the uk. temperatures generally down, around 19 celsius towards parts of wales and south—west england 18 degrees. enter next week, low pressure in charge. that will bring spells of heavy rain and spells of strong rain. temperatures will continue to slide into next week, highs of around 15 degrees in edinburgh as we get towards the middle of the week. heavy rain around at times too. that 00:27:41,860 --> 4294966103:13:29,430 is your weather.
