good morning. welcome to breakfast, with ben thompson and babita sharma. our headlines today: conservatives open their party conference with a promise to get brexit done, amid suggestions the opposition could try to bring the government down within days. there is also an announcement on hospital spending, with the prime minister pledging the biggest building programme in a generation. parents are urged to have conversations with their children about organ donation, in the face of concern about the lack of transplants for young people. good morning. in sport: the sixth—fastest man of all time, usa's christian coleman, storms to 100 metres gold at the world
athletics championships in doha. and crunch time for wales, as they take on australia at the rugby world cup. hello, good morning. not a particularly cheery picture behind me, and that's the way of it across england and wales this morning. it's pretty wet and windy fare for many. something a little bit better for scotland and northern ireland. i'll have all the details for you in just a few minutes. it is sunday 29 september. our top story: the conservative party conference opens later with a promise to get brexit done. there is also an announcement on increases in health spending. but the gathering in manchester is taking place amid suggestions the opposition parties could try to bring the government down in the coming days. this report from our political correspondent chris mason contains flashing images. protester: you are not
fit... borisjohnson arrived here last night with his girlfriend, carrie symonds, after a somewhat bumpy week. reporter: are you losing control, prime minister? so what is the plan? well, the first rule of party conferences — take a look at the banners to see what the party hopes to be talking about. the conservative plan for the next few days is to try to talk directly to the electorate. yes, about brexit, but also about other policy areas, like schools and hospitals, and to portray parliament, still meeting 200 miles south at westminster, as a pointless talking shop. but borisjohnson knows that, yes, he is in office, but he is not in control of events. nonetheless, there will be an attempt to talk big about the future, mrjohnson telling the sunday telegraph this morning that he plans the biggest hospital building programme in a generation. the government wants to get a brexit deal, but is running out of time. we can expect the prime minister to talk to european leaders this week to try to
shuffle things along. and everyone here will be keeping at least one eye on parliament, where the opposition parties may, just may, be tempted to try to make life awkward for the tories by hauling their mps back for votes. our political correspondent jonathan blakejoins us now. jonathan, there are a number of health pledges being announced. will these be enough to distract from the big issue of delivering brexit by the end of next month? two big messages from the conservatives in their conference over the next few days. firstly get brexit done, their slogan, and secondly focus on schools, hospitals, the nhs, police and the domestic agenda which they would like to push forward. so we will
hear a lot from the prime minister and others about how the conservatives are the only party that can deliver on the result of the 2016 referendum, and how parliament is doing its best to create or delay and continue to be a talking shop and get in the way of getting that done. and we will see the prime minister have conversations with other european leaders as he tries to reach that brexit deal, with time running out at the end of october, that deadline looming on the 31st. but they will, as well, the conservative party, be trying to focus on those domestic policies. we have had a string of announcements today about health spending, and that is just part of what we're going to see over the coming days, because they will look, sound and feel like they are preparing for a general election because they are. many will welcome that focus on the domestic stuff that focus on the domestic stuff that isn't brexit. but you have to wonder, why all the fanfare about it when they might not be in office to enact much of what they have announced. this is happening at an extraordinary time, not least because parliament is sitting down
in westminster. the brexit deadline isa in westminster. the brexit deadline is a few weeks away and you have the opposition parties talking up the prospect of a vote of no—confidence the government, which could see borisjohnson removed from office and jeremy corbyn installed as prime minister, temporarily or otherwise, and then we would be heading for a general election very soon, more than likely. but that is something which could happen at any time, but the opposition parties are torn. although they want to get rid of borisjohnson, they although they want to get rid of boris johnson, they want an election, and they don't trust him to not engineer the timing of that until after the brexit deadline at the end of october. they also suspect the government might try and find ways around the legislation which was passed to ensure an extension to the brexit process if the deal was not reached. they will have to get their ducks in a row and there will have to be a shift in position from some of the opposition parties, if they are going to go for that vote of no—confidence and agree how or when to do it. i did say a busy week for you, but busy month, busy week for you, but busy month, busy year! nice to see you, you very much. parents should include children in conversations about organ donation, according to the organisation that oversees transplants in the uk.
nhs blood and transplant says young patients waiting on average more than 2.5 times longer than adults for similar transplants. earlier we spoke to anthony clarkson, nhs director of organ donation and transplantation, who gave advice on how to discuss the issue. it is a really difficult subject, and no—one wants to think about children dying or their own children dying. so we're saying families should discuss organ donation generally and get the views out. what we do find, though, is that children are very matter—of—fact about organ donation. they often hear about it at school, and they often just see it for what it is. it's helping save a life, and they don't put any prejudice on it, or any superstition. it's just simply that, when you've died, you can donate to save
another child. it is that idea of having the conversation early, so that the tough decisions are already made when the time comes. demonstrations are continuing in hong kong following violent clashes between police and protestors there yesterday. tear gas and water cannon were fired by the police and crowds responded by throwing petrol bombs and blocking roads. let's go now to our china correspondent stephen mcdonnell, who is in hong kong. you have been covering this for what feels like a very long time now, and it doesn't seem like either side is making any progress or that these tensions are easing at all. what is happening today, if you move around the city, there is quite a police presence. there are police vans, patrols of police officers moving around. and what they are trying to do is stopping people from gathering before they can start protesting in
the first place. last night, on the anniversary of the umbrella movement, the umbrella movement sitting in central hong kong, we saw more clashes, teargas, water cannon and the like. and so today, the police are seeing if they can stop this getting momentum in the first place. this is also practice for next tuesday, of course, when what they are trying to do is stop activists from upstaging the big party, if you like, which is the 70th anniversary of the communist party coming to power in china. beijing wants people to think about everything that is great about china at the moment, all the achievements. processes want to use the occasion to criticise the government. so as you can see, the two are on a bit of a collision course. and so the police have been told, it seems, to try to stop these protests from happening in the first
place. absolutely, i know you are going to stay across that story. our china correspondent in hong kong. the uk's largest peacetime repatriation continues today, with 15,000 passengers expected to arrive home following the collapse of thomas cook. more than 150,000 are in the process of being brought back from holiday destinations, with nearly 1,000 flights planned in total. thomas cook collapsed last week when a takeover bid failed. there are more than 20 flood warnings in place across england, and two for wales, after heavy rain caused travel disruption for parts of the uk. persistent downpours led to localised flooding and difficult driving conditions in parts of north—peast scotland. elsewhere, a mudslide forced rail services in lancashire to be cancelled. the duchess of sussex has visited the site where a teenager was raped and murdered in south africa, in a case that sparked outrage across the country. she paid tribute to 19—year—old university of cape town student innene mrwetyana at the post office where she was beaten to death last month. the duchess said she did it to show
solidarity with those who have taken a stand, against gender—based violence. good morning to you. we will return to our top story now. the conservative party conference gets under way later with the prime minister pledging the biggest hospital building programme in a generation. it is unlikely to be business as usual, as opposition parties have threatened a vote of no—confidence in many big names have been kicked out the party. the conservative mp nigel evansjoins us now. i wonder how many times this guide has been rewritten before they pressed print and publish. there are a lot of friends activities going on, i don't think any of this is going to be affected by what the labour party may get up to
this week. in fact, labour party may get up to this week. infact, if labour party may get up to this week. in fact, if they were going to have a vote of no—confidence, why didn't they do it last week when they dragged us back from all corners of the earth? i was in hong kongin corners of the earth? i was in hong kong in the back of a taxi receiving the text get back to britain. and we had a day of slanging against one another and the next day we finished at five another and the next day we finished atfive p.m.. another and the next day we finished at five p. m.. and another and the next day we finished at five p.m.. and we didn't set friday. goodness me. so why they didn't have that vote of confidence then, i don't know —— didn't set friday. it is a pretty flexible agenda in order that, should there bea agenda in order that, should there be a vote of confidence or standing order 2a where the speaker tears up the rulebook yet again to work with the rulebook yet again to work with the remain forces in parliament, we will be ready to get on virgin trains or other trains back to westminster. we will come back to that in just westminster. we will come back to that injust a westminster. we will come back to that in just a second, because you have made quite a few points. let's look at what was announced today. quite a lot of announcements about health spending, school spending, that sort of thing. i wonder what the point of that is, when there is a huge elephant in the room which is sorting out brexit. the prime minister saying yes, we're going to get brexit done. how does he do
that? he was asked the 1922 meeting last week what is the missing piece of the jigsaw? last week what is the missing piece of thejigsaw? he last week what is the missing piece of the jigsaw? he didn't answer that question, and quite rightly so, because he is playing 3—dimensional poker with all sorts of forces trying to trip him up along the way, and he would be absolutely bonkers if he told them what the strategy happens to be. what he has said he will abide by the law, and that is true, and we will be out on 31 october, because he is not going to ask for an extension. so there is the prospect of a deal, which is what he is really keen to do, and of course i think the big thing that the remain forces in parliament fear is that they fear he is going to deliver brexit, and they fear it is going to be a success. and that is why they are doing everything they possibly can to delay, delete or dig brexit. and even the lib dems are talking about this 19 october date when if he hasn't delivered a deal he has to go back and ask for an extension —— which brexit. the lib
dems are talking about putting in an amendment to put the date forward to the fifth or sixth of october. is it realistic to expect he can get a deal before the 19th? if there is political will on both sides, absolutely. but he quite rightly said in the 1922 meeting that the remain forces within parliament have weakened his bargaining position. and they have done it quite simply like this. this is why he calls it a surrender act. the benn surrender act forces him to focus on one date, which is 19 october. and if there isn't a deal in parliament by then, 01’ isn't a deal in parliament by then, or agreed, he has to seek an extension. but then the european union are working on another date. they are working on 31 october. and so they are working on 31 october. and so it does weaken the bargaining position of the prime minister. and of course, if an extension is sought, and he says he is not going to do it, and of course this might
all come to ahead this week with a vote of no—confidence, and this attempt to put somebody else in as prime minister in orderfor them to go to brussels and seek an extension, gives the power to the european union to say actually, we don't want 31 january, we want a six—month extension. people want brexit done. do you think you are all ina brexit done. do you think you are all in a happy place? do you know, yes, all in a happy place? do you know, yes , even all in a happy place? do you know, yes, even though they are throwing the kitchen sink at boris and the conservative party at the moment. number one, iam conservative party at the moment. number one, i am on the right side of history, with the 7.4 million people who voted leave, and we will try to deliver that. so i am really happy about that, and also the last 40 consecutive opinion polls, including opinion polls that are out today, show that we are in the league, 11 point lead. more people wa nt to league, 11 point lead. more people want to see britain leave the european union. it depends which opinion poll you are looking at. and it is interesting, because we hear a lot from our viewers about the brexit debates, and many have said it isa brexit debates, and many have said it is a mess, and they
are struggling to follow the developments, if there are any. it feels like it has stagnated. so when i ask you is there a happy place, is there a cohesion? is there a sense of harmony within the party, to move forward ? of harmony within the party, to move forward? yes, absolutely. it is great speaking from salford and fantastic having the confidence in manchester, outside of the westminster bubble. when you saw the anger in the house of commons last week, when people were calling one another turkeys and goodness knows what, you come back to the valley and people say get brexit done, i voted remain and i want this delivered. people do want to move on, they want to get to the next thing. it is ludicrous that 3.5 yea rs thing. it is ludicrous that 3.5 years after that famous referendum, when david cameron said we would deliver whatever the british people voted for, we have got three quarters of the parliament who voted remain and are trying everything in their toolbox to try and dilate, delay or
a —— ditch brexit. their toolbox to try and dilate, delay or a -- ditch brexit. how do you convince your constituents that we are any closer to leaving the eu, and that boris johnson we are any closer to leaving the eu, and that borisjohnson can deliver this! essentially you look at parliament in disarray, i conservative party in tatters, with so conservative party in tatters, with so many mps either expelled from the party or struggling to decide what happens next, how would you convince voters that this is the way to do it? voters are convincing themselves, to be honest. when you get outside the bubble and talk to ordinary people, even last night, i was getting a thumbs up from some of the customers, get on with it. voters are convincing themselves, i don't know what that means. do you think borisjohnson is know what that means. do you think boris johnson is going know what that means. do you think borisjohnson is going to be able to deliver this? i believe he is determined to deliver it by the 31st of october. if there are powers outside of boris using every tool in the book to stop him and
that that —— that he is unable to do that, do i think he will bear the brunt, no i don't. ordinary people who are watching this programme, more people are taking a keen interest in politics now than i have ever experienced in my eight years as an mp. they themselves can see what is happening. they can see that all of a sudden, the front bench of labour have four or five on brexit. they can see that the liberal democrats are now saying they are prepared to revoke article 50. i am in a happy place. i have a leader of my party who is being absolutely consistent with the position that the party had in 2017 and that is to deliver brexit. in one word, yes or no, will borisjohnson to be the prime minister in two weeks? yes, i am certain. we will see how happy
place it is in the coming weeks but for now, thank you. here is phil with a look at this morning's weather. it is not seeing —— looking bright sunny manchester or anywhere for the conference. good morning. iam in a happy place for a bit — make in a miserable sort of day. there will be sunshine in the south—west eventually. it won't seem if you step out of the door right now, many parts of england and wales, one or two spots in scotland getting away toa dry two spots in scotland getting away to a dry and perhaps a right to start. this rain across the borders and the north of england stuck for a great part of the day. further south, a turbulent morning. windy and rainy. eventually that
clears and rainy. eventually that clears and here comes the sunshine through the western areas. it will seem a long way away until it actually happens but it will happen. for others, it will not because the rain sticks, the isobars squeeze again. high tide on the east coast. could have coastal flooding, given the strength of the wind. eventually, the system moves away, thankfully, all too late. the skies clear and we end up with a chilly old do overnight and many into single figures and well down. not so on the south—west. the next area of low pressure, a bit of a theme of the week, will already make itself felt. elsewhere, a bright, chilly start of the day with showers again fully exposed to the northerly wind.
here comes the rain. that is where it is by about teatime on monday afternoon. temperature, ten in the north and 17 or 18 in the south. it is still a plague across much of england and wales as we start the day on tuesday and that takes time to clear away. at least it is mild in the south but look at this, further north, the shape of the future, especially in regards to wednesday, bright day, a cool day, and then the isobars all turning to the north and north—west and there is plenty of them so we will end up with a chilly old day on wednesday. with a chilly old day on wednesday. yes, drier, brighter, sunshine as well, but top temperature on the south, forget 20, it is hello 14. phil has been blaming us for blaming him. the andrew marr show is here on bbc one this morning at 9:00. andrewjoins us now and can tell
us what's coming up. good to see you on the sofa. in 3—dimensional flesh. good to see you on the sofa. in 3—dimensionalflesh. i good to see you on the sofa. in 3—dimensional flesh. i am good to see you on the sofa. in 3—dimensionalflesh. iam here. and similarly, i have the prime minister live in the studio after nine o'clock. angela reina, from the labour party, is there going to be a vote of no—confidence next week? so much to talk about. and i have been talking about the great helen mirren. and of course, borisjohnson will want to talk about other things other than brexit. they will want to talk about nhs spending, schools, education, but of course it is brexit everyone wants to know about. and the conference, the slogan is, get exit done. —— get brexit done. his message will be, "i am the guy who will get this over". it has gone on for year after year. even if we leave after no deal, the truth is, both sides will be ten years of
negotiations going on so the bad news for your viewers is brexit is not going anywhere anytime soon. at your time of covering the news agendas, as you have done for many yea rs, have agendas, as you have done for many years, have you seen anything like this? idid i did 9/11 and the iraqi war and the fall of margaret thatcher. i have seen some very fall of margaret thatcher. i have seen some very wild times what i think what is different about this isi think what is different about this is i have never known the country quite as divided down the middle and quite as divided down the middle and quite as divided down the middle and quite as angry. the words being used by politicians are having an effect out there. people on both sides of the argument, notjust the leave side but also remain, they are getting dangerously and worryingly angry and there is the sense of, what you don't want is for politics to bea what you don't want is for politics to be a ring every day lives and what is going on at the pub and the kitchen table but that is doing it. and that is unusual. we will find
out later. let's take a look at today's front pages. the observer leads with labour's brexit spokesman, keir starmer, accusing boris johnson of "deliberately whipping up fears of riots and deaths" so he can try to invoke emergency powers and avoid extending the uk's eu membership beyond october 31st. the sunday times front page details allegations of the prime minister's relations with a us business woman during his time as london mayor. that's alongside a story that claims mrjohnson apologised to the queen for asking her to approve the unlawful suspension of the house of commons. the sunday telegraph has an exclusive interview with borisjohnson where outlines his £13 billion plan for new hospitals and medical centres to replace outdated buildings and equipment. and the sunday mirror hosts a dad's plea to find a heart donor for
his son. something we were talking about a little earlier about organ donation and how sensitive that conversation can be when you have it with your children but from what we heard earlierfrom children but from what we heard earlier from the director of the nhs fund for audit and transportation is that the key is openness. talk about it. tim bale, professor of politics at queen mary university london, is here to tell us what's caught his eye. good morning. you will start with the mail on sunday. this is about the mail on sunday. this is about the allegations against boris johnson and whether he unfairly supported someone. let us explain. they have been allegations that were started in the sunday times last week about a business woman and her relationship with borisjohnson and the reason this one is interesting i
think is it is in the mail on sunday which is a borisjohnson a supporting newspaper and yet it can't keep his hands of this story does make its hands of this story because it has everything to stop it has sex, it has the royals, they have brought almost everything into it. story isn't going to away. whether it will jolt it. story isn't going to away. whether it willjolt him over the course of the conference... do you think it will? there is that idea that the old rules don't apply and we are in a whole new era of politics are things that may have brought down a leader of any party simply don't do that anymore. that is true and that is where the trumpet parallel is very interesting. because donald trump has done lots of things that people said, when he was running for president and when he has done president, people have thought it would bring him down and it hasn't. —— the trumpet
parallel. people are looking at these things and thinking well, that is just boris. looking at these things and thinking well, that isjust boris. lung disease. from vaping. a really interesting article you have picked up interesting article you have picked up on this morning. this is from the observer and it is on only page 28 of the observer but i think that is interesting because i think this is a story that is going to actually explode in the future. it is bubbling under at the moment. it is this idea that vaping, which many people saw, if you like, as a solution to the tobacco smoking problem, may be in itself a dangerous. increasing reports from the usa, people developing lung problems. we do not really know yet whether it is a safe technology. lots of people have taken to it and
lots of doctors are happy about that, in some ways, because their main concern is tobacco but then of course if vaping itself causes problems then that will cause problems then that will cause problems in the long—term. it is a story we need to keep an eye on. problems in the long—term. it is a story we need to keep an eye onm is still in its infancy, in terms of being able to get a full picture on the harms. that is right because there isn't enough public—health evidence. people are trying to find out if there are long—term problems. explained this to us. a healing touch of deaf and blind doctor to be. this is a radical student. she is in the fourth year only 5% vision in one eye, zeroing the other and very acute hearing problems. she has managed to train as a doctor and she
talks about how she has managed to do that and the support she has got and also the reaction of patients to her disability. a positive reaction. she thinks —— she says she has less eyesight but more empathy than many. it is important. stay with us, thank you so much. we're here on the bbc news channel until 9:00 this morning, but this is where we say goodbye to viewers on bbc one.
borisjohnson has announced what he called the biggest programme of hospital building in england in a generation. the tories are meeting amid suggestions that opposition parties could try to bring down the government in the coming days. parents should include children in conversations about organ donation, that is according to the organisation that oversees transplants in the uk. nhs blood and transplant says more than 40 children died over the past five years while waiting for a heart to become available, with young patients waiting on average more than 2.5 times longer than adults for similar transplants. hong kong is braced for more protests after a night of violent clashes, following weeks of pro—democracy unrest in the city. petrol bombs were fired at police and water cannons were used in response. the protestors are angry about what they see as chinese interference in hong kong. there are more than 20 flood
warnings in place across england, and two for wales, after heavy rain caused travel disruption for parts of the uk. persistent downpours led to localised flooding and difficult driving conditions in parts of north—east scotland. elsewhere, a mudslide forced rail services in lancashire to be cancelled. the duchess of sussex has visited the site where a teenager was raped and murdered in south africa, in a case that sparked outrage across the country. she paid tribute to 19—year—old university of cape town student innene mrwetyana at the post office where she was beaten to death last month. the duchess said she did it to show solidarity with those who have taken a stand against gender—based violence. richard is here with all the sport. it is all about the rugby world cup, and a big game. really big game for wales against australia, crucial in that it will probably decide who comes top
of that pool, meaning an easier route to the final, and so on. they have had some titanic battles in recent yea rs. let's get a feeling, then, of the build—up to what is a huge game for wales in tokyo. both teams won their opening matches, so it is perfectly poised. let's talk to our sports correspondent katie gornall, who is there for us this morning. katie, the australian coach michael cheika says wales are favourites. but you could make a case for either side, really, couldn't you? you could, and i get the sense that michael cheika wasn't playing mind games. he does believe that wales are favourites for this game. it is are favourites for this game. it is a difficult one to call. gone are the days that wales can arrive at the days that wales can arrive at the world cup and go under the radar. they are here as grand slam champions, they have been very consistent in the build—up to this one, and they are coming up against an australia side who are
inconsistent but always seem to be able to raise their game for a world cup. they have won it twice, they have made the final twice. they very much heavyweights at this tournament. but as you say, you could make a case for either side. history would favour australia. they have this great record against wales, they have won 13 tests on the bounce, but that winning run came to an end in november when wales secured a narrow victory over them in cardiff. games between these two sides tend to be close affairs, may be decided by a late score here or there. so it is finally poised and it isa there. so it is finally poised and it is a massive game, because whoever wins this game has one foot in the quarterfinals —— michael —— finely poised. england going well in theirgroup, finely poised. england going well in their group, but finely poised. england going well in theirgroup, buta finely poised. england going well in their group, buta huge finely poised. england going well in their group, but a huge game here in tokyo. absolutely. it is a big moment for wales's captain, as well. alun wynjones will set a new record with his 130th cap for his country. i know, what an achievement that is. alun wyn jones i know, what an achievement that is. alun wynjones was in the wales press c0 nfe re nce alun wynjones was in the wales
press conference with gatlin and a few days ago, and he is a softly spoken man —— gatland. he was visibly squirming sitting next to gatland when gatland was talking about the scale of the achievement by alun wyn jones. about the scale of the achievement by alun wynjones. it gave a lot of weight to his competitive spirit. he said that since alun wynjones has become captain they have had fewer fights at training because alun wyn jones would always be starting them. he isa jones would always be starting them. he is a real tighten for wales, and when you consider the position he plays as lock and the physical demands on his body, it is remarkable he has managed to reach 130 caps —— titan stop he has beaten jenkins's record, and there will be a special day for him against australia. he is an incredible player, isn't he? what about the atmosphere at the tournament, katie? it seemed to really catch fire yesterday with that fantastic win forjapan against ireland. it really did, what an amazing game
that was. to be honest, it has all anyone has really been talking about. we have seen a lot of australian fans going up to japanese fa ns australian fans going up to japanese fans and talking about it. there are shirts as far as the eye can see, and it really has set this tournament alight. when you consider, four years ago, japan beat south africa and that was then considered the biggest upset in world cup history, this was a bigger achievement. it wasn't as dramatic a game, butjapan achievement. it wasn't as dramatic a game, but japan were achievement. it wasn't as dramatic a game, butjapan were so strong against ireland. they arrived in this tournament ranked number one in the world, and they outplayed them, they output them, they were better defensively. they were incredibly impressive, and it is a result that this tournament needed, trying to grow the game in asia, that is exactly what it would have wanted in order to do that. it is a result they could be felt long after the final whistle, as well. thank you very much indeed. brilliant scenes as the japanese celebrated. the game will be live on 5 live. coverage starts from 8:00am, and you can follow all the latest
with live text commentary via the bbc sport website and app. the usa's christian coleman has won the 100 metres at the world athletics championships in doha. he clocked a time of 9.76 seconds. great britain's zharnel hughes finished sixth. but there's british hope in the women's event after dina asher—smith stormed into the semi—finals. natalie pirks reports from doha. with crowds having largely stayed away, organisers were doing their best to bring the drama. this race provided its own fireworks. european championship zharnel hughes was britain's only finalist. christian coleman! but christian coleman has looked imperious in doha, and he wasn't about to let anyone get close to him. here goes coleman, and there goes common. christian coleman in a
world of his own, and he takes the title. he arrived here under a cloud after three missed drugs tests, but christian coleman has looked like a man with a point to prove, and boy was that fast. the sixth fastest time in history. when you cross the line and you know you came in first place in the 100m, i don't know, it is hard to put that kind of feeling into words. you don't get that opportunity many times, so to take advantage of it, i am just dreadful. but for the first time in a post bolt era, it is the women's 100m bolt era, it is the women's100m final tonight that really captures the imagination. very impressive run for dinner at a smith. she was as calm as you like in the heat yesterday —— dina asher—smith. a world —class yesterday —— dina asher—smith. a world—class season has left gold firmly in her sights. an average day — that is how jurgen klopp described his saturday, despite liverpool beating sheffield united to stay top of the premier league. they are five points clear of manchester city after they beat everton. two goalkeepers stole
the headlines, though, and not for the right reasons. hugo lloris, look away now. here is austin halewood. the new season still isn't two months old, but already these two look to be in a league of their own. for liverpool, six wins from six was a reason to smile. they have been the team to catch so far. but on a cold, wet saturday in the steel city, it can be hard to get into gear, the reds struggling to breach sheffield united's defence. in sports, you often have to make your own luck, but at brammall lane, dean henderson made it for liverpool. this is wijnaldum, and henderson has let it go through. they say the mark of a good side is winning when you don't play well. maybe this really could be liverpool's year. it was never easy today. we needed everybody for defending, we needed nearly everybody for attacking. and in the end, we scored a lucky goal, we know that. but the boys worked so hard for it. closer to home, on a murky merseyside, manchester city were trying to keep up with the pace.
eight points adrift at one stage, gabriel jesus started their leap up the table. but any city fan will tell you teams from these parts are hard to shake — dominic calvert—lewin levelling things at the break. but when it comes to this city team, no matter how far out, you just can't give them an opportunity. riyad mahrez — oh, it's superb from mahrez! sterling added a third, and with that, the gap was back to five. job done. now, if you thought you had seen the worst howler of the day, think again. tottenham were one goal up when hugo lloris did this. oh, no! what an absolute howler. this all just four days after spurs were knocked out of the league cup by colchester. luckily, they have harry kane. now, he may have the full backing of the fans, but across london, frank lampard needed a win. his young team have thrilled and spilled this season, but in the end, they looked
to an older statesman — willian with the second after georginio took the lead. there aren't many feelings better than that first game back in the league. scottish premiership leaders celtic dropped points for the first time this season after they were held to a 1—1 draw at hibernian. hibs had gone ahead in the eighth minute, but celtic‘s equaliser caused fury in the hibs dugout. manager paul heckingbottom kicked a water bottle in frustration, which hit the assistant referee and led to him being sent off. second—placed rangers thrashed aberdeen 5—0. there were also wins for hamilton and motherwell. manchester united's women record their first win in the top flight. 17—year—old laurenjames scored in their 2—0 victory over liverpool in the wsl. the fa were subsequently made aware of chants during the game which liverpool claim relate to the hillsborough disaster. he is yet to complete two seasons in formula one, but charles leclerc continues to show his promise. the 21—year—old from monaco will be on pole for a fourth race in a row
at today's russian grand prix. leclerc was almost half a second quicker than championship leader lewis hamilton and team mate sebastian vettel in qualifying. annemiek van vleuten won the elite women's road race at the world championships in yorkshire. the dutch cyclist broke away from the rest of the field with 65 miles to go to the finish in harrogate, and held on to win. britain's lizzie deignan, who grew up in the local area, could only finish 31st. it wasjust phenomenal. i'm just so grateful for this opportunity. like, what a privilege in my career to experience a home world championships. thank you to everyone that came out and supported, because they made the event what it was, and it'll be a race i'll never forget. another local, ben swift, will be hoping he can bring home gold in the men's elite road race, which gets under way later. the british champion will have a strong team of five riders alongside him, including the 2018 tour de france winner, geraint thomas. the welshman was due to ride in the time trial earlier in the week, but pulled out to focus all his efforts on helping
swift's ambitions. that is brilliant, isn't it? thomas not fit enough, suffering fatigue, to go in the time trial, but still wa nts to to go in the time trial, but still wants to be part of helping a team—mate try and win. wants to be part of helping a team-mate try and win. that's what you want to see, really, isn't it? wales and australia kicking off in an hour. yes, 8:45am. you could see how the atmosphere is building, it really is. this is another key game that will really ramp up as the tournament goes on. who do you have your money on? new zealand, but if your money on? new zealand, but if you look at their opening match against south africa, that, to me, i am no expert, farfrom it, but that looked like a different level to me. that is the level anyone has to meet, if they want to beat the all blacks, and possibly south africa as well. they are so great to watch, as well. they are so great to watch, as well. it is the style of rugby. that's it. we saw the japanese attack the irish with an open style
of play but new zealand can play anywhere you like. they can play tight end, whatever. that open style of play worked, didn't it? it did. pa rents parents should include children in conversations about organ donation. the nhs says young patients awaiting on average 2.5 times longer than adults for similar our reporter has been following the story of a double transplant patient aged 11. my name is lilly kendall. i am 11 years old, and i am waiting for a heart and lung double transplant. at one stage, it looked likely lilly wouldn't even reach the age of 11.
she spent herfirst three months in hospital with heart complications. medics advised her family to switch off her life—support machine. they managed to control her condition for nine years, but then she needed a lung and heart transplant. fewer than five children across the uk were on the double transplant waiting list at the time. hearts and lungs in particular need to be matched by size, so lilly was relying on a child organ donor. we've had a lot of difficult conversations, talking about herfunerals, what she'd like. this is my daughter's life. this will change her life, and give me my daughter back. a week after we filmed with lilly, she got the call. she was taken to great ormond street hospital, where the double translate operation took over seven hours to complete. these were lilly's first breaths with her new lungs. i feel very amazing, very happy. i didn't think i would survive without these new heart and lungs. getting more donors to help patients like lilly is the
challenge. children can sign the organ donor register, and if they are competent to make that decision, then that should be given the same weight as if an adult had signed it. but obviously the final decision, as with adults, is with families, and therefore we need families to talk together about what those wishes were. such an important issue. smaller organs are needed for smaller children. to make sure there are a lot of them available. a lot of them are still on the transplant waiting list. phil has a look at the weather for us this morning. and a big puddle you have given us this morning? thank you for the puddle. now that the sun is out, it has
light. you are not alone, there will be big old puddles in many spots across england and wales, the scottish borders, today and northern ireland as well because there has been a lot of wind and rain overnight and this is how it has shaped up in the past few hours. don't discount what has gone on in the heart of the midlands as we speak because that is a very gusty area of torrential downpours. what doesn't quit the scene is this very slow moving area of rain which does nothing for the temperatures. a lot of whether generally today so the websites are more at your pace rather than mine. any good news later on. northern ireland, a bit of sunshine. so, too, a bit of scotland. wind is an important feature today because the squeeze in the isobars this evening is the low pressure m oves
the isobars this evening is the low pressure moves off the isobars this evening is the low pressure moves off to the near continent which will change the wind direction and dry water down the north sea. just in time for the high tide, they could well be coastal flooding issues. in the night gets quieter, thankfully and the skies clear and it ends up being quite a chilly night. the temperature is widely down in single figures. make the most of the dry start, particularly so southwest wales and south—west england. it won't last more than a couple of hours for some of you because this system is on the way. elsewhere, the commute, no great problems at all. right, sunny, chilly, but here comes the cloud and rain, ushering its way into this southern and western part of the british isles. further north, a decent day. not a warm one but some sunshine and one or two showers on the northerly breeze of scotland. the same weather system does a repeat of what we are seeing now. swings its way across the british isles during
tuesday, eventually quitting the scene. further north, a drier day, a brighter day, a chillier day. nine degrees in newcastle, nine degrees in aberdeen, and that is the air stream that wins out was not as we move thataway, we get rid of the last of the mild air from the south and what a contrast, blew all the way and that is not a political statement. it turns much cooler by day and by night and where we we re cooler by day and by night and where we were looking at 20 something as a high in the south just a few days ago, the high will be 14 and that is where we have been across the south for some of the night times of late. we got used to the warm weather. we got used to the warm for some of the night times of late. we got used to the warm weather. as we should remember, how does this compare to averages? this is about right? that 14 is a bit below we we re right? that 14 is a bit below we were “— right? that 14 is a bit below we were —— where we would expect to be.
but it has come at a shock because we have been so far over the seasonal norms over the past few days or so. time now for the travel show. hello and welcome to the travel show with me, ade adepitan. this week, we are kicking off in iceland. it is a country famous for its natural beauty. but as cat moh has been finding out, things there are changing. we've all seen it on the covers of magazines, and the footage of nature documentaries.
stunning images of a landscape from which iceland takes its name. but these glaciers are more fragile than they may seem, and they have a story fit for a storyteller. "there was an immense crack. the ensuing earthquake was greater than any experienced since man first walked the planet. my name is andri magnusson, i am a writer in iceland, i have written children's books, poetry, plays, science fiction and non—fiction. we are in an example of what has to happen to all coal—fired power stations in the world. i am part of a group who made a creative place out of it. what is your connection to glaciers? my connection to
glaciers is more through my grandparents. my grandparents were founding partners of the icelandic glacial research society. and they went on a glacial honeymoon in 1956, for three weeks. and they were stuck in a tent in a blizzard, and i asked them when i was a child, weren't you cold? and they said "cold? we were just married." i didn't understand how you get warm when you get married. but i found out later. this has been family mythology, our brave grandmother, a pioneering woman on the glacier. but if i had written 20 years ago that glaciers would melt in the lifetime of a single human being, that would have been sci—fi at the time. well, now it is not sci—fi any
more. it's just sci, science. andri, hello. welcome. hi, i'm cat. welcome to my power station. thanks! it's not everyday i get invited to power station. so these are your grandparents. yes, this is iceland's highest peak, 2119 metres. grandma is not even wearing a coat, is she. no, it's good weather there. so i slightly interrupted you, can i help you hang these up? i am choosing what photos i would like to use in my book. i will put this one up here. andre, how does looking at these photos make you feel? they have always made me feel nostalgic, proud, but they are also a slice section of time, that is, this is the first generation
that was able to enjoy glaciers, and we only have three generations that will live that period. so then the glaciers will go, and after 300 years, these photos will be totally alien to that generation, especially in iceland. when the ice has left iceland. andri wanted to take me somewhere to show me just how quickly the landscape is changing. about 10% of iceland is covered in glaciers. but glaciologists now believe that all of iceland's glaciers will be gone in just 200 years. we meet a guide to help navigate us on a long walk high up into the clouds. "here are the colours replacing the flowers. "here are the bulbs replacing the stars, "here are the brands replacing the species, "here are the freezers
replacing the glaciers. "this is the eye of the storm, the reason for everything is right here in my cart." tell me about where we are standing right now. we are standing at this memorial plaque which is where 0k glacier used to stand. 50 metres above us, should have been an ice sheet across here, 30 years ago. but that has now completely vanished, and we only have these remains of dead ice around us. five years ago, when 0k glacier was no longer heavy enough to lift itself up and move, it was declared dead. the amount of ice here has decreased dramatically. researchers from rice university in america recently drew attention to the loss. they approached andri to write the inscription for the plaque, commemorating the
dead glacier. it's a strange situation, because how do you memorise the sky? it is something big, firm, eternal, it pushes in two directions. it points from here to the future, and it points from the future back to us. will you read me what you wrote? yes. here it says, "a letter to the future. "0k is the first icelandic glacier to lose its status as a glacier. "in the next 200 years, all our glaciers are expected "to follow the same path. "this monument is to acknowledge that we know what is happening, "and what needs to be done. "only you know if we did it. "august 2019, 415 ppm of co2." that's the amount of co2 in the atmosphere, and actually the cause of the
melted glacier. and that is rising, about 2—3 ppm every year. but still, hundreds of glaciers remain here. i left andri and went with my guide to solheimajokull glacier, the icy tongue of iceland's fourth—largest glacier, which covers nearly 600 kilometres square. it's also suffering under global warming. leifur runs carbon neutral tours here. do you think it is necessarily a good thing to encourage tourists to come to places where it might be their last chance to see it? notjust here, but anywhere around the world, isn't thatjust making
a bad situation even worse? i think you can always question to fly and travel. but if you do, whether it is to spain or to iceland, then at least i think it is good that people are educated about nature, about glacier behaviour and how global warming is affecting the glaciers. but step down from the glacier to its lagoon, and here you can find a whole new perspective. you can actually see how quickly the ice is melting — look at all the water just dripping down into the lake. while a certain amount of meltwater each year is normal, it's the rate of loss at glaciers like this that is
unsustainable. so how deep is this? close to the glacier it is about 60 metres deep. has it changed much in the time you have been coming here? oh yes, enormously. the lake didn't exist, just recently, it is just ten years old. this lake is ten years old? yes, it was starting to form in 2007 as a tiny pool, and now the glacier is melting at 100 metres per year. first i found it really interesting to be living in a land where you could see the changes. but then, when you see it at this scale, it is frightening and a bit sad. i have a gift for you. what is the gift?
precious gift, a rare diamond. (laughs). a rare diamond! inside, there is trapped air that has been there for hundreds of years. that is incredible. it's so clear, isn't it. it's crazy. the ice may be beautiful, but it's a stark reminder that unless something changes soon, seeing and experiencing iceland's iconic glaciers is a privilege that few further generations will have the chance to enjoy. good morning, welcome to breakfast with ben thompson and babita sharma. our headlines today. conservatives open their party conference with a promise to "get brexit done" — amid suggestions the opposition could try to bring
the government down within days. there's also an announcement on hospital spending — with the prime minister pledging the biggest building programme in a generation. parents are urged to have conversations with their children about organ donation, in the face of concern about the lack of transplants for young people. good morning, in sport. the sixth fastest man of all time, usa's christian coleman, storms to 100m gold, at the world athletics championships in doha. and crunch time for wales, as they take on australia at the rugby world cup. hello, good morning. not a particularly cheery picture behind me, and that's the way of it across england and wales this morning. it's pretty wet and windy fare for many. something a little bit better for scotland and northern ireland. i'll have all the details for you in just a few minutes. it's sunday the 29th september. our top story. the conservative party conference opens later with a promise
