good afternoon. england's rugby team produced one of their greatest—ever performances to beat defending champions new zealand and reach the rugby world cup final injapan. the all blacks were clear favourites before the game but england dominated, taking the lead in the second minute, and eventually winning by 19—7. they'll face either wales or south africa, who play tomorrow, in the final. our sports editor dan roan reports from yokohama.
ca ptu re capture the moment, 12 long years they have had to wait to say we were there, to witness their team play in a game of such magnitude, opponents more used to such occasions arriving quietly confident. any meeting with the dominant forcing rugby is special, but a place in the world cup final on the line as well, it is a match of truly epic proportions. defiance was set early, england encroaching into all—black territory before the game had began, making their own formation, during the haka, if they were in intimidated, they haka haka, if they were in intimidated, they ha ka certainly haka, if they were in intimidated, they haka certainly did not look it, manager of a able to pick and drive overin manager of a able to pick and drive over in less than two minutes. this is the quickest try they have ever conceded at a world cup, well worth making a note of. —— manu tuilagi. after such a sensational start, england were in no mood to loosen theirgrip, england were in no mood to loosen their grip, this was the latent threat that the all blacks smack about all blacks always pose. they
finished the first half in the ascendancy, george ford's penalty giving them a precious lead. they continue to apply the pressure after the restart, but celebrations were short lived, try reviewed and then ruled out for a knock on in the build—up, new zealand soon took advantage of the good fortune. calamitous line out from their opponents, from their own line, and savea pounced. that was as good as it got for the reigning champions, this england team does not buckle as it has in the past, defending like men possessed, endless hunger earning crucial points from the boot 01’ earning crucial points from the boot or forward, earning crucial points from the boot orforward, as earning crucial points from the boot or forward, as they tightened their grip on this, the biggest game of their lives. new zealand running out of time, they had not tasted defeat in this competition since 2007 but had been outplayed, their dream of a third successive world cup triumph over along with their reign. england proving too strong, too composed, too good. rugby‘s world order had a new world power. it is always about defence, and our best form of attack is
defence, we create opportunities for the offence to attack. —— defence to attack. i would like to pay the greatest compliment to new zealand, winning two world cups in a row, great team, we had to dig very deep to beat them. incredible, absolutely incredible from start to finish, they were all over them, all over them. breathtaking, amazing. if we play like that in a final, you don't wa nt play like that in a final, you don't want to count your chickens, but, fingers crossed, if it all goes well, repeat performance, who knows. tonight, england can bask in the defining victory, now they will have the chance to win the ultimate prize in the sport. let's speak to dan in yokohama. dan, where does that rank in terms of england's world cup performances? not since 2003, when the world cup was won, has english rugby enjoyed a moment as enjoyable, a significant, as the one we have just witnessed here in the yokohama stadium. they
came into the match as underdogs, they ended it as top dogs, four yea rs they ended it as top dogs, four years ago, england humiliated in their own world cup on home soil, crashing out at the group stage, in the wake of that failure, the rfu invested heavily, bringing in australian coach eddiejones, they tasked him with putting the pride back into english rugby, and reaching the semifinals of this tournament. well, here this evening, he went one better, and in doing so, his team have dethroned the superpowers of world rugby, the all blacks. it ends a run of six defeats against them, the last time england beat them was in 2012, they will have to wait until tomorrow, england, to discover who they will play in next week's final, either wales or south africa, but after a performance and a win that will never be forgotten, they now know they will go into the final as firm favourites. two more bodies have been removed
from the refrigerated lorry container in which 39 people died travelling from zeebrugge in belgium to purfleet in essex on tuesday night. several families in vietnam have contacted the bbc, fearing their loved ones are among the dead. lisa hampele reports. this morning more bodies have been taken by private ambulance from the container here in tilbury for postmortem examinations at bloomfield hospital in chelmsford. essex police are still trying to identify the victims. meanwhile, desperate families are coming forward to try and find out what happened to their loved ones. viet home, an organisation which helps people from vietnam in britain says it has been given the photographs of 20 people. they are thought to have been missing and may have been among the dead. the father of this 20—year—old says his son had planned to treble from france to britain but they got a call saying, please have sympathy, something
unexpected has happened. —— travel. translation: those who would still like to go abroad, please think carefully. the chance for survival is 50—50. the priest from vietnam thinks he knows relatives who think their families are dead. translation: when they learned of the news of the people who died on the way to the uk not only the district, but perhaps the whole country is in sorrow. this is a tragedy that the whole country has to bear. four people remain in custody. lorry driver mo robinson is still being held on suspicion of murder. a 48—year—old man was arrested at stansted airport yesterday on suspicion of people trafficking and manslaughter.
and joanna meyer and her husband thomas from warrington are also being held on the same charges. the democratic unionist party conference begins in belfast today. leader arlene foster is expected to reaffirm her party's opposition to borisjohnson's brexit deal when she addresses delegates this afternoon. emma vardy is in belfast for us. and emma, divisions with the conservatives again apparent? they certainly are, described as a bit like the big elephant that is not in the room! last year at the conference, borisjohnson was present, playing a starring role, being cheered to the rafters by delegates for telling them that no government should ever agree to put a border down the irish sea. fast forward to today, many here feel borisjohnson has somewhat forward to today, many here feel boris johnson has somewhat sold forward to today, many here feel borisjohnson has somewhat sold out the dup, they see him as having broken commitments for having agreed in his revised brexit deal that they will need to be some customs checks on goods crossing from great britain to northern ireland, this is a key concession, the party believes it goes against the heart and soul of
what the dup is all about and leader arlene foster is set to rally the party this afternoon against the " b rex it" party this afternoon against the "brexit" deal of boris johnson. party this afternoon against the "brexit" deal of borisjohnson. —— brexit deal. millions of people in california face having their power cut as the emergency services continue to battle two rapidly—spreading wildfires in the state. a local electricity company says it intends to turn off power in 36 counties after one of its transmission towers developed a fault near one of the fires. angus crawford reports. through smoke and flames, help from these guys. —— through smoke and flames, help from the skies. emergency services at either end of the state, tackling wildfires driven by 70 mph gales. wine country north of san francisco under threat. everyone evacuate! the fire's coming up! and fear further south in santa clarita. 50,000 residents forced to evacuate. two days now, two very long,
sad, disappointing days. there's nothing to burn in my area. it all burned out. literally around two, three in the morning, it felt like it was a train ripping through my car. even pets had to seek sanctuary. there has been limited damage, no injuries reported and most fires are under control. but rising winds may stoke the flames. we're potentially going to see a historical wind event. and it has us highly concerned that the vulnerable areas of california could see some explosive fires. for now, then, firefighters must watch and wait. angus crawford, bbc news. the world's biggest film festival involving people with learning disabilities has been taking place this week in brighton. the 0ska bright film festival has featured more than 2,000 movies from all over the world,
and it aims to improve the opportunities for people with disabilities in mainstream cinema and tv. jayne mccubbin went along to find out why it's so important. when was the last time you saw somebody with a learning disability on prime—time telly? mmm... erm... the 0ska bright film festival is all about trying to change this. fifteen years after it launched, it is the world's biggest learning disability film festival. and now it's been recognised and as a bafta—qualifying short film festival. we're getting such exposure and bold stories from people out there who've got learning disabilities. amongst the possible winners is this from eleanor, who is autistic. it's a film about trying to fit in. beige days for when
she really tries. 0range days for when it all bursts out. a lot of people don't accept people who are different these days. more than 2000 films from around the world cover big issues but organisers say they are rarely glum. it shows what we are truly like and that we can be fun, if people want to know us. being tipped for a real 0scar this year is zack gottsaggen in the peanut butter falcon. that could be a landmark moment. still, there are concerns that people with a learning disability are only ever on the screen for tears or triumph, neverjust for being. the organisers of 0ska bright would love to see that day come. jane mccubbin, bbc news. you can see more on all of today's stories
on the bbc news channel. the next news on bbc one is at 5.20, bye for now. good afternoon. you don't need me to tell you it has been a thoroughly wet 2a to 36 hours across parts of wales and north—west england, radar picture showing the rain almost stationary across this part of the wet, amber warning has now been lifted. close to five inches of rain in the wettest spot. this weather front, responsible for the rain, will get a wriggle on and move south and east as we head through the course of the day, low—pressure anchor to the north of the uk, fairly blustery day for northern scotland, showers, lots of brightness across the hello. you're watching the bbc news channel. more now on england's emphatic vistory over the all blacks. they're now through to the final
of the rugby world cup, when they'll face either wales or south africa. as you would expect, there was headyjubilation amongst england fans leaving that match in yokohama. the way those boys played today out there for us was absolutely incredible. it was relentless from start to finish. bearing in mind that was the all blacks they were playing against, is that as good as you have ever seen them play? yeah, i would say the defence was amazing. absolutely amazing. theyjust didn't give an inch. and it was superb, fantastic. if you pick the one to 15 now, every single one of them who wears the white shirt was unbelievable. how would you sum up that performance? breathtaking. amazing. if we play like that again in the final, you don't want to count your chickens obviously. but fingers crossed, that it all goes well. if we repeat that performance, then who knows? relentless was the word. right from start to finish, absolutely fantastic. a brilliant performance from the boys. you can see them winning the world cup now? who knows? i don't like to count chickens. never count your chickens. if they play like that again, they win it. it is as simple as that. the atmosphere was amazing. we had a whole lot of all blacks supporters next to us at one side, and we totally drowned them out. it was just superb right
from the beginning. wonderful. a really positive atmosphere as well. how good were england? really good. incredible. really, really good. her first international rugby match. a good start, yeah! jeff probyn is a former england rugby international. hejoins me now via webcam from france. thanks forjoining us. i presume you are watching. i was. thanks forjoining us. i presume you are watching. iwas. it thanks forjoining us. i presume you are watching. i was. it was a great game, what can you say? an england side that has produced that level of commitment and perfection are really in the way they play are going to be ha rd to in the way they play are going to be hard to stop when it comes to the final. was it down to preparations and a strategy by the coach, do you think? 0r and a strategy by the coach, do you think? or what? ithink it and a strategy by the coach, do you think? or what? i think it was down to preparation. i think thatjohn mitchell being in the coaching setup has given england an insight into how england should train and play. certainly, england attacked. and new zealand in the first few minutes of that game, they attacked them with an intensity that i haven't seen in yea rs. an intensity that i haven't seen in years. they kept that going throughout the game, keeping the pressure on the all blacks. and really making the all blacks make mistakes. and that is what eventually won them the game. i expected england to win, but not by
the school that they did. and when you look ahead now, who would you prefer england to meet? to be honest with you, it is not about prefer, but i would like wales to beat south africa. it would be the first time ever that they would be a northern hemisphere final. all other world cups have either been southern hemisphere or one from each hemisphere. for us, it would be great for northern hemisphere rugby if wales could beat south africa and we play them in the final. is there a danger that england might have peaked too early? because if you beat the world champions, that is obviously going to be a big day for all of the players. they have end guts the build themselves up again for the final. it is eddie jones's responsibility now to keep the players' feet on the floor. everybody will tell them they are favourites now. having beaten the all blacks, this england team are the best team in the world, they are the best team in the world, they are the best team in the world, they are the best thing since sliced bread,
and it is up to eddiejones to keep their feet and it is up to eddiejones to keep theirfeet on and it is up to eddiejones to keep their feet on the floor. because whoever they play next is going to note that they are the team that beat the all blacks, and they are going to be preparing very, very ha rd to going to be preparing very, very hard to make sure that they don't suffer the same fate. so england have to keep their heads about them, they have to keep their feet on the floor, and they have to put in a performance like they did today. an outstanding performance, particularly by the back row. i thought george ford had a great game, coming back and reclaiming that position. he played very well. how big a deal is it in terms of the history of the club on an international stage to have this victory today? 0r international stage to have this victory today? or it is vital, what can you say? england haven't beaten the all blacks too many times, they have never beaten the all blacks in a world cup before. it is the first time england have done that and in such an important game, the knockout game. new zealand now have to wait
and play the third and fourth position game, and that is the game that no one wants to play. jeff, thanks for your time today. let's return now to news of the investigation into the discovery of 39 people found dead in a refrigerated lorry in essex. people are continuing to question four suspects. the police are continuing with that investigation. earlier i spoke to tony, a former director of border force uk. he told me this incident is the worst he's seen in the a0 years he spent working there. i have only ever seen one incident as bad as this, that was when i was serving, it must have been 20 years ago when we had some chinese unfortunately locked in a similar kind of a frozen container in dover. fortunately, it is not something we see so much of these days, not in terms of fatalities. locking people in a fridge or frozen container is quite rare.
but to me itjust shows that the smugglers are prepared to go to any ends at all to bring people over here, and it is an increasingly dangerous business. and if you do get into a refrigerated lorry, what is it that ultimately will end your life? is it the temperature or is it the lack of air? it will be both. but the thing about these containers is that they are not designed designed for people, of course, they are designed for freight. and they are locked from the outside, there is no way you can get out. it is very hard to raise the alarm once you are in there. and they can be left unattended and picked up by various shuttles of drivers at different points along the journey. so you could quite easily find yourself locked in there for some considerable time before the next movement. and that is why it is so dangerous. how difficult is it though to get into one of those lorries without the cooperation of someone who has got the keys or the locks?
that is not easy to do. you can cut the seal and break into it. but it is far more likely, in my experience, with these types of vessels, that somebody will have loaded you in and shut you in and resealed it. because the seals are checked whenever the container, which is tracked now by gps, there is a seal number, a container number, there is a very good audit trail, so any visible signs of tampering with the back of the vehicle will be spotted more likely than not. so i don't want to speculate at all about this particular case, but in my experience, these types of containers are seldom used for irregular migration. it is usually lorries, off—sided lorries where people can justjump in and out of it. that is the more favoured route. but it is extraordinarily dangerous for people to try it. and with these refrigerated lorries, is it the case that people can survive a shortjourney inside them? well, my advice would be not to get
in one in the first place. there is no reason for a human being to get into the back of a refrigerated lorry. i know you guys at the bbc are in touch with some of the families. please send the message out to people, do not try this, do not believe the smugglers, they want your money. they have no regard for your human life or existence. they are serious international criminals. so we need to educate people, please don't climb into the back of one of these things. you can see now the tragic impact of what happens if you do. tony smith there, former director of border force uk. a second man accused of killing two teenagers at a house party in milton keynes last weekend has appeared in court. seventeen—year—olds ben gillham—rice and dom ansah died after being attacked at a birthday party in archford croft. earl bevans, who is 22, was remanded in custody. protest leaders in iraq have announced a pause in organised demonstrations to give the government time to come up
with solutions to their demands. yesterday, a0 people were killed and 2,000 others were injured in violent demonstrations. protesters are demanding more jobs, better public services, and an end to corruption. the iraqi prime minister, adil abdul—mahdi, has refused to resign but promised to reshuffle his cabinet. torrential rain has caused flooding and landslides in japan, leaving at least ten people dead. thousands of people were forced to spend the night in tokyo's narita airport. eastern coastal areas were the worst hit. the prime minister, shinzo abe, said the authorities were doing everything possible to help people in the affected areas. the billionaire owners of the telegraph, david and frederick barclay, are reportedly in the early stages of selling the newspaper. the brothers, who are in their eighties, bought the paper in 2004 for more than £660 million. i spoke to our business correspondent, katie prescott, earlier. so they own the telegraph, they own the ritz hotel,
that is already up for sale. they also own a delivery company and shop. the telegraph home to the current prime minister's former column. politically, it has been very pro—brexit. the newspapers in this country play a massive part in politics, don't they? so whoever buys this paper will be keenly watched. over the years, there have been rumours of a sale of the newspaper. it has been struggling to maintain readership, its circulation has halved over the past decade. its profits were down 94% last year. when the rumours have circulated, the buyers who have been fingered have beenjeff bezos the founder of amazon, and the owner of the independent newspaper. so i imagine their names will come into the fray again this time as well. a russian woman who admitted acting as an agent and infiltrating us political groups has arrived back in moscow. maria butina was freed
from a florida prison yesterday. she was sentenced to 18 months earlier this year after admitting to a single charge of conspiracy. france is bringing in new rules for the use of electric scooters following hundreds of incidents involving the vehicles, including several deaths. from this weekend, it will be illegal to ride on the pavements, and all riders must be over 12 years of age. gail maclellan reports. whizzing around paris on one of 20,000 rental scooters. at first glance, it seems like a good idea, an eco—friendly and cheap alternative to existing transport. but not everyone is enthusiastic. translation: just this morning i saw a mother and a three—year—old child on one scooter, going between a car and a bus. if the child slips, the mother would not be able to catch her and she could end up under the bus. infuriated pedestrians complain that scooters lay strewn across pavements.
because they do not have docking stations, they are parked where the last person left them, ready to be picked up by the next rider via a mobile app. dumped scooters have also become a significant problem, with many being found in the city's parks and squares and even in the river seine, sparking a new profession — scooter fishermen. from this weekend, electric scooters, or trottinettes, may not be ridden on pavements, unless specially designated, and even then at walking pace. only one person may be on the scooter, and the top speed on roads will be capped next year at 25km/h. and riders are banned from wearing headphones or speaking on their mobiles. disappointing news for some. translation: i like to be together with my friends on an electric scooter and have fun, but i guess it is better to pay attention and not to listen to music. at least six people have been killed in france in electric scooters
and the hope is these new regulations will keep everyone safe and, if they do, the trottinettes might help transform urban mobility. gail maclellan, bbc news. a man from derby has completed an epic 4,000—mile walk around the coast of britain in memory of his daughter, who died from a blood clot in 2011. martin shipley began his amazing journey from robin hood's bay in yorkshire in february. his wife, maureen, has been supporting him throughout the challenge, and has walked 1,000 miles herself. they've raised more than £10,000 for charity. now it's time for a look at the weather with stav danaos. thank you very much. what a thoroughly wet 2a to 36 hours it has been across parts of wales and northern and western england. this is the radar imagery showing you just wear that heavy rain has been. the dark blue indicating the heavy rain. further north, they have been scattered showers and wintriness over the higher ground. and look at these rainfall totals across parts
