9:30 am
after a wet and windy night, it will continue for a good part of the morning, and it is not done yet with this combination of weather. thanks to the area of low pressure. not such an area issue across scotland and northern ireland, although it was wet in northern ireland, it is drier and will continue to be for the rest of the afternoon. a bit of sunshine here and into the south of england and parts of wales but the rain ever there in parts of the midlands and north—east of england. which will suppress the temperatures down to 12. eventually that moves away. watch out for strong wins flicking into the north—west along the norfolk coast, could be some issues with coastal flooding and what will be clear skies, cool night and therefore a crisp start to the new day on monday. looks as though we are going to see a new area of cloud wind and rain eventually spilling into the south—western quarter of the british isles on two wheels in the midlands and the south—east. the further north and east you are, the drier your day
9:31 am
will be. hello this is bbc news. the headlines: further promises to deliver brexit are expected this morning as the conservative party conference gets under way in manchester. borisjohnson is planning billions of pounds of spending for hospitals, what he describes as "the biggest hospital building programme in a generation". parents are urged to have conversations with their children about organ donation in the hope that more young people willjoin the donor register. hong kong police fire tear gas and pepper spray at anti—government protesters who have ta ken to the streets in the lead—up to the 70th anniversary of communist rule in china. wales are taking on australia in the rugby world cup, with wales just in the lead at the moment. before the papers, sport and a full round—up from the bbc sport centre. here's richard askham.
9:32 am
good morning. we'll start with the rugby world cup and a huge game for wales, who are taking on australia in tokyo. it's half—time in a match that is likely to decide the winners of the pool. at the moment it is 13—8 in favour of the welsh. at the moment it is 13—8 in favour of the welsh. georgia enjoyed a bonus point winning 33—7 victory over uruguay in kumagaya. uruguay were unable to repeat last week's heroics against fiji, as georgia ran in five tries. giorgi kveseladze with the last. the match also saw the second sending—off of the tournament, with uruguay‘s facundo gattas dismissed for a high tackle. georgia move up to third place in pool d. the first medals have been won on the track at the world athletics championships. nothing for great britain in the men's 100 metres, which was won by christian coleman in one of the fastest times ever, but there's huge hope in the women's event after dina asher—smith stormed
9:33 am
into the semi—finals. natalie pirks reports from doha. with crowds having largely stayed away, organisers were doing their best to bring the drama, but this race provided its own fireworks. european champion zharnel hughes was britain's only finalist. for the usa, christian coleman. but christian coleman has looked imperious in doha and he wasn't about to let anyone get close to him. and zharnel hughes has work to do. here comes coleman. and there goes coleman. with crowds having largely stayed away, organisers christian coleman in a world of his own, and he takes the title! well, 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 come across the line and you know you've come in first place and you are the 100 metre world champion,, i don't know, world champion, i don't know, it's hard to put that type of feeling into words. you don't get the opportunity many times, so to take advantage
9:34 am
of it, i'm just grateful. but for the first time in the post—bolt era, it's the woman's 100 metre final tonight that really captures the imagination. very impressive run from dina asher—smith. britain's poster girl, dina asher—smith, was as calm as you like in the heat yesterday, sailing serenely through to today's semis. a world—class season has left gold firmly in her sights. liverpool remain five points clear at the top of the premier league. jurgen klopp‘s men beat sheffield united by a single goal, with title rivals manchester city keeping up the pressure with a victory at everton. but it was two goalkeepers who stole the headlines, and not for the right reasons, as austin halewood explains. 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
9:35 am
sheffield united's defence. in sports, you often have to make your own luck, but at brammall lane, dean henderson made it for liverpool. 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 to do. 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, gabrieljesus 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 after the break. but when it comes to this city team, no matter how far out, you just can't give them an opportunity. it is superb from riyad mahrez.
9:36 am
sterling added a third, and with that, the gap was back to five. job done. if you thought you had seen the worst howler of the day, think again. tottenham were one goal up, when hugo lloris did this. 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. 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 winner. there are not many feelings better than that first home win in the league. elsewhere, crystal palace and wolves both won. there were draws between aston villa and burnley and bournemouth and west ham. scottish premiership leaders celtic dropped points for the first time this season after they were held
9:37 am
to a 1—1 draw at hibernian. hibs had gone ahead in the eighth minute, but celtic‘s equaliser caused fury in the hibs dug out. 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. a 17—year—old helped manchester united's women record their first win in the wsl. laurenjames scored in their 2—0 victory over arch—rivals liverpool. the fa were subsequently made aware of chants during the game which liverpool claim relate to the hillsborough disaster. he's yet to complete two seasons in formula one, but charles leclerc has equalled a feat of the sport's two most successful drivers. the 21—year—old from monaco will be on pole for a fourth race in a row at today's russian grand prix. lewis hamilton was the last driver to do that in 2016. michael schumacher was ferrari's last driver to do it back in 2001. leclerc was almost half a second quicker than hamilton and team mate
9:38 am
sebastian vettel in qualifying. these guys have some crazy speeds on the straights. they go to another level. you know with that whole ‘party mode‘ you talked about us as having, they have something else beyond that — jet mode! but nonetheless, i gave it absolutely everything i had at the end and the team did such a greatjob to tinker and push forwards and i'm so glad it came together. i wasn't expecting to get on the front row, that's for sure. annamiek van vleuten won the elite women's road race at the world championships in yorkshire. the 36—year—old dutch cyclist showed she's still got plenty left in her legs by breaking away from the rest of the field with 65 miles to go to the finish in harrogate. britain's lizzie deignan, who grew up in the local area, could only finish 31st. it wasjust phenomenal.
9:39 am
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 will be a race i'll neverforget. another local rider, 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. he has been super motivated for this old year and he's got on really well. we have adam yates and teo who are also in fine form, so we have three fine guys there right in the crunch at the final and then with
9:40 am
myself, we can help them as far as we can. in the big rugby game at the world cup, wheels lead 23—8 at half—time. that's all the sport for now. now on bbc news, here's the papers. hello and welcome to our sunday morning paper review. with me are rosamund urwin, who's a senior reporter at the sunday times, and the evening standard's defence editor, robert fox. let's take a look at the front pages. borisjohnson is deliberately stoking up fears of riots so he can invoke emergency powers to avoid delaying brexit, says the observer. the sunday times claims jennifer arcuri has told friends she was having an affair with borisjohnson when he was mayor of london. the american businesswoman
9:41 am
is at the centre of allegations about improper business donations from the prime minister when he was in city hall. meanwhile, conservative mps have warned borisjohnson that the party risks falling into terminal decline if hard—line brexiteers take over, according to the independent. the mail on sunday says downing street has launched a major invesitagtion into alleged links between foreign governments and the mps behind the so—called ‘surrender act', which could force a brexit delay. meanwhile, the express says that borisjohnson has so much support that no matter what remainers do to thwart him, voters would back him even if he was injail. the prime minister announces plans to build a0 new hospitals, says the sunday telegraph. 0k, ok, that's a quick round—up of the front pages. let's kick off
9:42 am
with that story. boris johnson, front pages. let's kick off with that story. borisjohnson, i will build a0 new hospitals. another promise on health from boris johnson. before that, theresa may with big spending promises for the nhs. he has given his big conference in tribute to the sunday telegraph. what a surprise! he has focused here on that's hospital building programme. boris johnson's record and big infrastructure projects is not perfect. a garden bridge was never built. there was supposed to be an airport in an estuary that never popped up. and a bridge across the irish sea. that's right. if you look at the detail in the story, it is not really a0 new hospitals. they need to win two general elections are pleased to get to that number, which is cracking —— kicking it
9:43 am
quite far into the future. sex hospitals over the next five years and the remaining projects which would include smaller rural hospitals will be completed. generally, robert, it is a bold promise which might well entice some voters with an election in mind not too far away. focus both on domestic policy. probably a bit of schools, a bit of law and order but it is really helpful. remember when in the dog days of the last labour government i think it was between tony blair and gordon brown, they came up with an extra 2 billionjust like that, as tommy cooper would say. what was discovered is that they couldn't digest that in an natural —— annual budget. there is a lot of sleight of hand going on. it is not the monopoly of one party. the amounts these figures and some
9:44 am
of these figures have been announced before. full rosamund, your paper has an interesting story on page two, a rebel alliance plotting to impeach the prime minister. there are stories across the atlantic at the beach in donald trump.|j are stories across the atlantic at the beach in donald trump. i would that work? it is interesting because what we have seen over the past three and a half years is a lot of looking at legislation, old legislation and following on that. a lot of people would know you could still impeach a prime minister in britain. the last time it was used was in 18a8, not against the prime minister, against lord palmerston, the foreign secretary. this is being looked at by opposition parties in the wake of the supreme court ruling last week. clyde comrie have drafted this bill and it could be tabled this bill and it could be tabled this week. so, borisjohnson‘s edit
9:45 am
continues. it is interesting to see both these things happening with the president and prime minister who perhaps look quite similar on both sides of the atlantic. is it likely? no, because as they are discovering an america where the process is much clearer, it is going to be politically very expensive. this is a bit ofa politically very expensive. this is a bit of a chance. how can you bring to book somebody in the office, in government who has bad behaviour. there should be one line in the story, borisjohnson there should be one line in the story, boris johnson in there should be one line in the story, borisjohnson in a telegraph column argued that tony blair should be impeached. he argued a lot of things i seem to recall. that was backin things i seem to recall. that was back in 200a. things i seem to recall. that was back in 2004. the continuing speculation, investigations about boris johnson's alleged speculation, investigations about borisjohnson‘s alleged former
9:46 am
girlfriend. jennifer actuary, a p pa re ntly girlfriend. jennifer actuary, apparently she told friends of an affair with borisjohnson. apparently she told friends of an affair with boris johnson. this apparently she told friends of an affair with borisjohnson. this is one of these stories that is not really going away. it is not. a lot of people would say no big surprise here. what i would say is that this inside team have done some frantic reporting. yes, they turned rumour and hearsay into something much more solid here about what she has talked about with friends, she has told other people about this relationship at the time. what is really important, a good reason to say the order why they did this in the order that they did it in, they talked about the alleged financial impropriety and that she was effectively getting favouritism in her treatment, allowed to go on foreignjobs that
9:47 am
her treatment, allowed to go on foreign jobs that she shouldn't have been allowed to that city hall backed. it is important to establish it isn't just a backed. it is important to establish it isn'tjust a story backed. it is important to establish it isn't just a story about backed. it is important to establish it isn'tjust a story about his personal life. it is about his time in office. is this damaging to the prime minister? it is the same old, same old. there is an element of teflon about boris. i wonder how it will play with a certain sector of the population, the uncommitted female population, that element of the voters. i don't think they like being produced. reputational e, boris does have a problem. much more than the metropolitan press are reflecting. the mail on sunday, this isa reflecting. the mail on sunday, this is a story where they are the mail on sunday has exposed our plot to letjohn burke who sent us
9:48 am
to rent a letter to brussels, proving remain mps have foreign collusion. there has been talk this week about the use of language in parliament, and here we have talk about surrender and collusion and so on. here we have talk about surrender and collusion and so onlj here we have talk about surrender and collusion and so on. i do like to be personal, but when we come to the dossier, the ten page dossier on democracy in belltown, as you see three angry men and women and it looks as if they are trying to say move looks as if they are trying to say m ove over looks as if they are trying to say move over brian blessed for the pantomime season. it is completely over—the—top. equally, some of the stuff is extremely interesting from the mail on sunday, but it is eye watering the exaggerated. foreign are really supporting the hilary benn act! come on. not even emmanuel
9:49 am
macron would know how to frame a tricky piece of house of commons legislation, and it wouldn't be jumper,. he is the go—between, the representative, the go—between between the executive, the queen, and parliament. it could be that the act would allow a representative to be sent to brussels. it certainly wouldn't be jumper cow, but it could be somebody like the cabinet secretary. the observer have the prime minister whipping up a riot fear is to avoid brexit extension, and the idea that that might allow borisjohnson to invoke emergency powers and therefore avoid extending eu membership beyond the end of 0ctober. what you make of that? the government are denying they would use that, saying that is
9:50 am
nonsense. yes, and people in the cabinet 0ffice yes, and people in the cabinet office said thatjournalists and ministers always clutch at the civil contingencies act but it is much more complicated than that. what i would say on this is certainly i think there are fears that if we don't leave on the 31st of october there could be riot on the streets, i think that is overblown. we didn't have that on the 31st of march, we didn't have that in april. i accept that the mood is different, but i think they really want us to feel that. we have a story inside the sunday times that they certainly have looked... they are preparing for civil unrest, but they are preparing on both sides. that was in operation yellowhammer. my sources say that would be a much worse situation because of sainsbury‘s ru ns situation because of sainsbury‘s runs out of breads in wigan or whatever that is a
9:51 am
bigger problem than a few angry people burning their bins. boris johnson think it will take us out on the 31st of 0ctober will take us out on the 31st of october and he will obey the law. how would you square that circle? is there a trick up downing street's sleeve, if that isn't this one about emergency powers, what is it? for me, an innocent journalist emergency powers, what is it? for me, an innocentjournalist of 52 years, there is an aspect of a rubik cube problem that has got stuck here. the civil contingency thing has been flying for some time. the feeding frenzy came from social media. it was running big on twitter for four or five days. how are you going to do it? if he is going to invoke emergency powers, he would have to have an order in council. the privy counsellors, which are not just tories, would have to go to the queen, consult the law officers. it is very, very difficult. it could all end up
9:52 am
in the supreme court ain! all end up in the supreme court again! lets go away from politics and the government and the mirror has a story about transplants. the wider point here is looking for more organ donations from young people, from children. the mirror has campaigns for this legal gent that is coming in next march when adults will actively have to opt outs of organ donation. here they are saying correctly that the new legislation does not apply to underage teens. 0bviously, does not apply to underage teens. obviously, the difficulty is getting organs for children like this poor boy. it is a very moving story. a new father survived the heart transplant to see his first child born and then discovers his baby son needs 12. it is heartbreaking. robert, the mail on
9:53 am
sunday, isis children returning to the uk. this isa children returning to the uk. this is a story we haven't talked about much in the last week or so, but we have during the year, obviously. the cabinet war over whether to bring 30 isis children back to the uk. they are ina isis children back to the uk. they are in a pickle. remember, when it started, it was the defence secretary, gavin williamson, who started stripping isis returnees of their citizenship. what has happened with one of the stoke newington group is the assumption is because her parents are from bangladesh that she could go back to the subcontinent. it doesn't work like that. where the uk government is in real difficulty is you cannot
9:54 am
declare a person stateless. this is an accumulation of international law from the gm charter. you have some saying she could come back and potentially be a suicide bomber or whatever. they have caught up with heron whatever. they have caught up with her on the last day or two and she is in her on the last day or two and she isina her on the last day or two and she is in a terrible state. she has lost everything. she's had a breakdown. there must be some debate about that because i think there is a lot to be said to bring these people back and trying them. i mentioned the supreme court and their judgment trying them. i mentioned the supreme court and theirjudgment on boris johnson being unlawful when he suspended parliament. the meal have a big spread about this from peter hitchens, controversial communist, talking about from the supreme court's words that they would have circled boris bike
9:55 am
tanks. he claims that thejudges are circled boris bike tanks. he claims that the judges are over my tea. the is they are a check on the balance on the prime minister who has overstepped the mark. this is an important part of democracy, too. they were given these powers and the ruling was unanimous last week, i think that is really important. also, i think yes this is the inevitable argument of peter hitchens. i would argue it is a good thing to have checks and balances. peter hitchens was rather keen to bring tony blair in front of the supreme court. you can have it both ways, peter. take the heat and the steam out of it, the problem is that
9:56 am
the law grows, it goes everywhere. the law is growing over terrorism. it is an accretion. what you cannot say is that there are whole parts of public life, political life that is outside the law. this is what lady hale's team has tested and said, no, you all have to obey the law. and we have an unwritten constitution, so these things are not set in stone. you have to have legal brains to interpret that constitution. it is really doing in the royal prerogative. very briefly, lady he'll‘s brooch. please! a collection approaches are shown in the sunday times for us. it was the spider on the day of the judgment, wasn't it? people say spider text on incredible hulk! i like that
9:57 am
last week was called the triumph of the girly swats. lady hale is an incredibly brilliant mind, as is gina miller. what this piece is about, the most important decision you make is finding the right life partner. of course it is the most important you can make. and particularly the right tone of voice. that was the thing. move over maggie smith, you have a real threat here! a future in hollywood! a future in hollywood! that's it for the papers. thank you. goodbye.
9:58 am
norfolk is not the only place to see an extraordinary amount of rain through the night and the first part of something. no great surprise when you see the overall picture that we have a significant area of low pressure bringing wet and windy weather across the southern half of the british isles. it has not been such an issue for scotland and northern ireland, nor will it be through the rest of the afternoon. the rain will linger in the north of england and north midlands as well. 50 mile in our winds in places along the coast. sun chang will move into the coast. sun chang will move into the southwest, western wales, northern ireland and parts of scotla nd northern ireland and parts of scotland faring quite nicely, too. showers in the far north—west. 0vernight, this low pressure will move to the near continent. there could be some coastal
9:59 am
flooding along the north norfolk coast, perhaps, so keep an eye on conditions there. 0nce keep an eye on conditions there. once that system moves away the skies were clear and it will be a cool start to set the least for the monday morning commute. although monday morning commute. although monday starts on a crisp autumnal note, out towards the south—west we will do it all again. pretty much from the word go to the cloud and rain is there to be had across parts of wales in the south—west of england, gradually creeping into the day. elsewhere a lovely start to the day. elsewhere a lovely start to the day with plenty of sunshine. clouding over through the day. northern ireland losing the sun chang to be had. in the north, not overly warm, ten or 11 degrees only. 17 in the south. the weather system will be there as a player for england and wales through tuesday. never an issue for scotland and northern ireland, but notice how much cooler it is here. that's because we are getting the first
10:00 am
taste of things to come as their isobars click around to the north and north—west. in two of them as well and the cool air and eventually tumbling from the north of the british isles down towards most parts. the middle part of the week will be marked by temperatures down on what we have seen of late. the night—time temperatures will also begin to fall. take care. goodbye. this is bbc news, i'm ben brown. the headlines at 10. as the conservative party conference gets under way in manchester, the prime minister defends his use of language which sparked a fiery debate in westminster this week. i certainly think everybody should calm down. and i certainly think... including you? i think i've been a model of restraint. but i think everybody should calm
10:01 am
down. public services will also be on the agenda as the government makes promises to invest in hospital projects across england in the next decade. parents are urged to have conversations with their children about organ donation, in the hope that more young people willjoin the donor register. hong kong police fire tear gas and pepper spray at anti—government protesters, who have taken to the streets in the lead up to the 70th anniversary of communist rule in china. and at 10.30am, protecting our planet takes a look at sustainable solutions, around the globe. good morning. the conservative party conference opens today in manchester,
