about his plan going forward. you saying and the scientists. yesterday boris johnson announced an saying and the scientists. yesterday borisjohnson announced an upcoming change to the advice in terms of mentioned, for example, the change working from home, a day after his in terms of working advice from the chief scientific adviser has said there was no reason to do that. start of august. the government is going to move from advice saying, borisjohnson work at home if you can, to giving there was no reason to do that. boris johnson talked there was no reason to do that. borisjohnson talked about by november at the earliest looking at employers more discretion now. some moving away from social distancing unions have suggested this is rather and the one metre rule and hours passing the buck onto employers. and later his chief medical officer of course it came just one day after talked about social distancing needing to be with us for a long sir patrick vallance, the chief time. it is these kind of contrasts scientific advisor to the government, said there was no reason that you guys put to the transport to change that advice. now, it is secretary earlier. important to stress boris johnson i have been in covid did say yesterday all of this is strategy meetings with the chief medical officer very much conditional on controlling and chief scientific officer and they have said what they have the virus, on people sticking to the said throughout which is these are judgement calls that we cannot rules, but he did also offer up this rather tantalising prospect if make as scientists and you have things go well. it is my strong and to make as leaders and i say these are difficult, complicated, sincere hope that we will be able to often very close judgements review the outstanding restrictions about what you do when and how, and allow a more significant return but we do think it is right to normality from november at the on balance to give people a sense of hope, a road map, earliest, possibly in time for and tell people if things

as animation director on the brilliant chico and rita once again works simple wonders with the visuals, which are starkly intercut with live—action footage from this film. be warned, orchestrated animal suffering and death is a recurrent feature of las hurdes, and he does not shy away from this unpalatable truth. act really cool, just act cool. i've got two... ..persons with disabilities. ..persons with disabilities and a blind guy. excuse me, it's visually impaired. visually impaired gentlemen. which one of you is driving? it's sort of a team effort. back in 2007, bbc film, for one night only, told the story of astor philpott who was born with art with the process and who travelled to a legal brothel we can speak to will and ben in spain to lose his virginity. now, who bothjoin us

but we are in the middle of a huge magnificent landmark in the city and crisis besides the other crisis, you need to explain what you are the economic and political standing on immediately because and health system crisis. otherwise we are going to be worried about you. it sounds like one storm coming up on top of another. does it ever make you feel desperate this is the actual dry dock, the about the situation? victorian dry dock where the ss great britain was built and launched well, we do. from back in the middle of the 19th century. what they do here, it is a most of our physicians are very concerned. fantastic site, they pump the river they are unprotected. water from the river avon over on they don't have the tools to cope top of this glass floor or ceiling, when you are down below, then the or work with the patients. hold down below is temperature controlled, climate controlled, to i'm talking about basic tools stop the hull eroding any further. like surgical gloves or protection equipment or antibiotics or oxygen or mechanical ventilators. it is extraordinary to see how much so we are pretty much working has been restored on the ship and with all hands and most of the young doctors are already getting wait until you see the pictures in a couple of seconds of what it looked like 50 years ago when it was recovered from the falklands. this ship has had so many lives and it is having a new beginning today because, as you say, gates are
sick of covid—19. opening to the museum, to the ss great britain, for the first time in four months but let's take you back half a century when she was a much, so that is another real worry, much more for lawn site. when you look at your colleagues, especially in the public hospitals it was audacious and incredibly where there are not many resources. ambitious, a plan straight out of the brunel playbook. they are putting themselves at risk. refloat and repatriate his victorian iron—hulled ocean liner from the falkland islands back to the dock where it was created, they have double risk. an 8,000—mile voyage, the width and the length they have community risk which is high. of the atlantic ocean. and they have a work lyle craigie—halkett, risk, or a health risk a falkland islander, remembered playing on the wreck as a boy. related to theirjob. the decks were very rotten. actually, we have no just doctors or nurses and also other health she was covered in guano personnel who have been in danger from thousands of sea birds or have been getting sick. close to 50% of the hospital, that roosted on there, the bigger hospital in venezuela, so, yes, it was a bit dangerous. do not have, right now, lyle became a salvage diver and left surgical masks, which is the basic markerfor us to monitor home but was given the chance the protection equipment. to return in 1970 for thejob so we are still, some of the bigger of a lifetime. hospitals in venezuela do not but the challenges were huge. have a single surgical mask on first look, we were dismayed. or a single surgical glove to protect themselves. or i certainly was.
i neverfor a moment thought she was going to look like that. when we dived i thought, gosh, you were talking about the economic what have we taken on? crisis that underlies the state she was riddled with holes from decay and that sort of depth of the health service. have you had conversations round the water line. with patients, people who have covid who are worried about paying the work was being filmed for medical treatment? and photographed by toni morrison the national average and his wife marion. top deck, you really couldn't walk on. salary in venezuela, i mean, you were in danger. for example, for a doctor, and below that was nothing other is $6 a month. that is the regular salary than rusty girders a foot wide, and a long drop below into some very for a medical doctor in venezuela. dirty looking water in the bottom and the cost is close to $1000 per of the hull, and of course day in private clinics right now. so it is impossible for a person we were carrying all our equipment. who does not have international insurance to pay for critical care and, just as an aside, related to the covid—19. i happened to be pregnant even for doctors. at the time as well. physicians who do not have private insurance, it is impossible for them to pay for the medical care. so, it was all quite and also, 95% of venezuelans do not challenging, you could say. have coverage for insurance. they have to go to the public hospital. we already talked a pontoon would be sunk, placed
about that situation. under the hull, and then raised. people are struggling, notjust for people in venezuela, slowly but surely, everybody is struggling with the crisis. because if you get $6 or $10 the great abandoned ship a month, it is barely would float once more. enough to find food. as she come up, you see the great bow of the ship. fantastic. they have to go to it's amazing how the the public hospital. emotions come back... we already talked ..after all those years. the salvage team had beaten the odds about that situation. and the ship was towed home. entire bristol had turned out. yes, it was really... people are struggling, notjust for people in venezuela, it was good. everybody is struggling with the crisis. because if you get $6 or $10 actually, quite emotional, really, a month, it is barely enough to find food. having watched it being salvaged what is the hardest part of your own job? actually, it is difficult to deal and leaving and arriving, and all in good repair... with the information because we have a lack yes, that was an amazing experience. of transparency related to the numbers in venezuela because in venezuela, just one lab is doing the pcr. having steamed and sailed around the globe for decades, the ss great britain came to rest let me ask you about in the exact same spot
the tests, the pcr. where she was born 127 years before. my understanding is you are not allowed to carry out tests yourself. is that right? she had completed herfinal voyage. just one lab. only they can do the pcr. which is under the regime control. and actually, some of the labs that have tried to do the pcr, they were shut down by the government two months ago. so right now, we still have just one lab. this is down below. look at this. it sounds as if one of the biggest the original victorian dock where problems is that you know numbers are rising, but you don't know very the ss great britain was launched much about the true numbers from all those years ago and where because from your point of view, she now rests. good morning to you, there are not enough tests? absolutely. matthew. an incredible history this actually, we wonder what is the real ship has and the modern history has number of pcr that we are doing been something we will need to in a daily basis in venezuela. reflect on at one stage but what has been the impact liked on the museum because they have not said and on your work having been closed the numbers of pcr they are doing. according to some organisations, forfour months? and on your work having been closed for four months? it has been a we are between 600 and 1000 test by day. significant impact, this is the first great ocean liner designed to carry passengers in first class at columbia actually is doing close high speed across the north
atlantic. she has been called the to 4000 or 6000 pcr by day. great—great—grandmother of every ship today. brunell built her four people and we are itching to get back to open up again to thousands we need to go that far because otherwise, it is impossible of visitors that enjoy her every to track the epidemic or to diagnose the patients and isolate year. being closed forfour the most cases we want. of visitors that enjoy her every year. being closed for four months has been a very difficult time for everybody. it has across the country. as an independent museum and education charity, we don't depend on public subsidy and we have do you think venezuela is struggling to welcome visitors through the door compared to her neighbours? so our to welcome visitors through the door so our income has gone through the floor, so we are itching to open up absolutely. again and welcome people back in for the summer. and brunel's motto? notjust in pcr. press forward. thank you very much, our health system is very far from columbia. we are the weakest health system in the region according to john hopkins' classification, so we are a pretty unstable system matthew. so, yes, as he was saying, that absolutely puts in jeopardy the key thing, the reason we are so all the citizens related to trying to cope with covid—19. excited about the ss great britain, it was the first ship, because of brunel's extraordinary design and propeller that was able to sail across propeller that was able to sail a cross ocea ns propeller that was able to sail across oceans under the power of stea m across oceans under the power of steam because previously shipsjust
couldn't carry enough coal to take it is difficult to ask you to sum them across an entire ocean. let's this up, but could you tell me say good morning to dave. tug boat what you think the government is doing right and what it is doing wrong? captain, skipper back in the day well, i think the early when she came in, you are at the quarantine was the right decision in early march. stern where we are now when she came in. yesi stern where we are now when she came in. yes i was on the stern on a little tug called the fell garth. other than that, they have been what was that day like? it started out as an ordinary day, towing a ship which we had done so many times doing a very weird strategy. but as we progressed up the river, more and more people were lining the river bank, lining the port, and when we got to the clifton right now, we are in the beginning of exponential phase and now suspension bridge, there were we are releasing some measures thousands of people there. and we like some states can realised then this was something have a normal life. very special and we were then very they don't have any kind proud to be part of it. you have a of restriction or quarantine. picture of yourself there, just hold and the virus is already it up and gary will get a little all over the place. all states in venezuela picture of you as a slightly younger do have transmission, but we have 60% of the states today than 50 years ago. that is you in in a normalisation phase, the dark top with your hands in your which is absolutely weird. pockets, far left, so you remember it as being a special day and you
work with the ship now. all, there there is no country other than latin america who have been doing relaxation of the norms relating to the covid—19 even is somebody we know there. good in the exponential phase morning! didn't he do a good job all those years ago? you still work it, and we are in the middle of that. don't you? you work with the museum? drjulio castro, when you tell me iama don't you? you work with the museum? i am a volunteer. why is it so these things about the state special and why is it such an of venezuela, you're speaking out important place? she is the and it could be taken as critical of nicholas maduro's government. are you putting yourself grandmother of every ship afloat today, she's got a propeller, balanced rudder, there are so many at risk by speaking out? things about this ship which were first and are still in use on modern ships today. thank you very much yes, for sure. when we complain about the numbers indeed. he was a visionary, brunel, or complain about the hospital situation, we are in danger. couldn't have foreseen quite what notjust myself, all the physicians who are complaining the last four months have been like are in jeopardy right now. but doors open once again today as we keep saying, a step back to normality. back to you. venezuela doctorjulio charlie: we caught a glimpse of the castro in caracas. we talk next about a country man in the top hat, the figure that is already weakened by four decades of war. around. lovely, thank you very much, john! 9:48am. covid cases stand at 311,000
here's ben with a look and rising in afghanistan. at this morning's weather. and lockdown is imposing extra hardships on a lot of families a mixed picture? you took the words making do with very little. right out of my mouth. a mixed bag, the international committee thatis of the red cross runs a number right out of my mouth. a mixed bag, that is exactly what we've got today. for some people, a bit of of clinics there that are overseen by doctor gabriel mufuta, sunshine around, looking lovely off a congolese born doctor who has the coast of northern ireland a decade of experience in war—torn countries. whereas this was cumbria a little early on from one of our weather he has been speaking watchers. cloud and rain and as you to me from ireland, he is there on a short break from kabul. can see we have this band of cloud the health system, which is weak of rain and cloud. it is sitting. it and frail as it is known, a war—torn country, four decades of armed conflict, inevitably isn't going to move its way south the country is facing difficulties to organise different sectors eastwards very quickly at all. to the north of it, we have some and the health sector is one of them. sunshine across scotland and northern ireland, some showers all the province's regions pushing in from the west, and it'll be quite wind across northern are reporting cases now. scotland. a fairly cool and fresh there have been decades of war day here and also feeling very cool in afghanistan and hospital infrastructure has been rundown. that we have our weather front across parts of northern england, wales, the midlands. further south, is this a problem now when you're we have some big areas of cloud looking at things like needing floating around, little bit murky beds and needing oxygen?
especially down towards the south—west. we will see some cloudy what is it like as a doctor skies at times but the sunshine is trying to deal with this? likely to reveal itself heading into the afternoon and if it does, that's where we see the warmest of the after those four decades, the government is making an effort weather. our frontal system where we see the warmest of the to help with the hospital staff, weather. ourfrontal system dragging its heels getting into the midlands, but unfortunately, the situation is still below standards. and to the north fresh, breezy it doesn't follow properly. weather with a mix of sunshine and the ratio of health professionals showers. quite a range of versus population is still beneath temperatures, 17 in glasgow and what is required to how can i say be belfast, 26 or 27 across parts of able to provide quality services, the southeast. i have to say if you so generally speaking, a cricket fan, this doesn't make for facilities are overwhelmed. great viewing because at old trafford there will be rain on and off. it might dry up a little bit at the basic health late in the day, as our frontal level when they exist. otherwise, they are working system eventually pulls away at a substandard level and this southwards but, as it does, tonight makes a huge challenge for health staff to cope both with the ordinary another pulse of heavy rain running work and covid, which comes across that weather fronts are as an additional layer of complexity with all the response. pretty wet across eastern and south—eastern parts of england. further north and west, clearing skies and a pretty cool night, quite and how easy it is to track people moving backwards and forwards over the borders? chilly across north—east scotland and you could see loads of four or 5
by march, april, there has been degrees. tomorrow, our weatherfront still dragging its heels, cloud and a struggle to organise patchy rain through the south. for an appropriate screening at those borders entry points, but clearly coming from iran and pakistan, you all know that iran has had the majority, we should see some a high report of cases, and of spells of sunshine. there will be course considering afghanistan, efforts should have been made showers particularly across scotland all around the border but organising it was a struggle if i can say. and temperatures tomorrow 17—22, slightly fresher for all of us. that weather front which would have been with us all weekend, finally clears away sunday night and we see high pressure building on from the west and of course, for people to be settling things down ready for the screened, and for the virus to be start of the new working week. traced, people have to want to come southern area sting dry and warmer. forward and say i might be positive. further north and west, some rain at is that happening? times. so, yes, it is a mixed bag. at the beginning, it was difficult. and even though all of the health it was music to the ears promotional awareness which is been of fans of art and culture, developed throughout the country, as concert venues and theatres we have to admit the effort has been were told they can re—open made by all the humanitarian at the beginning of august. but does this mean that things partners in the government themselves, but the stigma lends can return to normal? to people most of the time do not many venues self report as much as they can say there's no way they can possibly and looking re—open their doors with social distancing measures in place, at the magnitude of transmission and there's still major questions
and the country, it means that about how safe it is to sing and perform in public. facilities are finding it difficult our arts correspondent david sillito reports. to diagnose and eventually isolate the room is particle free, super patients and of course facilities clea n, the room is particle free, super clean, filled with sensors, everyone is in medical scrubs wearing masks. may be overwhelmed at this stage, this is serious science. what they so then we can see a lot of cases are studying here is singing. do not report to the health system by itself. that stays in the community. # happy birthday to you! you use the word stigma. what do you mean by that? hgppy # happy birthday to you! happy birthday, it seems so innocent when a new phenomena like this appeared, of course but when there is so much the panic installed itself. uncertainty and anxiety about possible infection, we really need to know what is coming out of among the health care workers themselves and in the community. peoples mouths. at the outset of the so that is why any facility labelled as a covid—19 centre, coronavirus pandemic there were people tend to avoid. descriptions of clusters of covid inquires around the world and since that time we have been looking for so there is a stigma attached to having coronavirus signs to guide us as to whether that and you talked about fear? is that also a fear of family having is the case or whether it is the to be isolated or locked down? non—singing aspect of those meetings that cause the problems. now with a
in case of death, unfortunately, number of scientists raising the procedure around covid, questions about possible the body is a bit different transmission in the air through from the ordinary ones. breath, this is vital research. we family are kept more know when you speak, much the same or less away from the body. as when you cough or sneeze, you generate a lot of small particles, or they have to be buried in a specific way which is not called aerosols, and some big really acceptable as per culture. droplets, so big droplets are the that is why people as soon as they see a relative diameter of a human hair and they getting seriously sick, settle out into gravity within one it automatically turns to stay home so as when they pass away, to two metres, but the much smaller at least they can still be around to participate to the last particles could be airborne for minutes or hours. it has rites or for burial. implications. we will not be seeing a mass singalong at the last night dr gabriel mufuta, who oversees the red cross of the proms this year but how many clinics in afghanistan. people can they safely have onstage? i am philippa thomas and you're watching coronavirus: your stories. the current guidelines say singers this week, we are talking should stand side by side with a three metre gap which would mean the to doctors fighting the virus traditional cause could stretch out in struggling states. of the royal albert hall down to the next, syria. it has been in the headlines natural history museum. for smaller for a decade now. since war broke out, venues, social distancing will make more than 400,000 syrians have been very difficult. so, while venues are killed, millions more have fled. being allowed to reopen in august,
those left behind are in a country there are many questions about particularly vulnerable to crisis. whether they can afford to and syria has already been through its coronavirus lockdown, but now the number of those infected reassuring the public and performers is rising again, especially about how safe it is to get back on in and around damascus. stage. david sillitoe, bbc news. and that is where we have been joining us now to talk hearing about some of the civil about this a little more is singer—songwriterjames bay, society efforts that are helping who's at home in london. people get what they fundamentally this is brilliant news need to survive. for musicians but notjust then, eve ryo ne for musicians but notjust then, everyone who works in the industry over the last three months, to support live music. yes, dana shubat has been coordinating awareness campaigns and helping fundamentally it is brilliant news to make and distribute supplies. but as you've covered, there are a dana has just graduated as a doctor. lot of details and small but big questions that need answering the war started when i was in my because to be told gigs can start is last year of high school. that year, we had to flee our amazing. we've all waited so long, house on july 15, 2012. and so many people, like music is responsible for 200 jobs. after one week, we lost our farm and the hospital that my and so many people, like music is responsible for200jobs. so, and so many people, like music is responsible for 200 jobs. so, so father was managing. many people have waited this time to so we started all over again know what is going to happen to in the capital damascus. we rented a house and we started their futures and careers. to rebuild everything know what is going to happen to theirfutures and careers. and i've in our lives again. been told they can come back but there are unanswered questions about
specific details and rules and regulations regarding how we handle my father is a surgeon himself. he has been the manager of a hospital that was affected coronavirus at gigs outside or by the war in 2012, inside. tragically, it is too late so we were raised loving medicine. for some venues, from venues that you have been extremely busy. i know you have been very involved are small, that are iconic in the in civil society efforts world of music. we heard deaf to help with the pandemic. tell us something about what you have been able to do. we had the lockdown and we had institue closing down, and many all the procedures to make sure others and they won't be the last. that the cases do not increase, and they are so important. there are so what i have done in the first place is to spread awareness institutions in their own right. and to spread the verified resources they all have such important where they can get the real information, so i targeted histories and important communities, the facebook pages that had a lot be ita histories and important communities, of likes in the society and gave be it a starfor histories and important communities, be it a star for the people that play there or go to watch the gigs them the information. there. for that to disappear, those are such important fibres at the foundation of music, so much music people need to know because having people know the truth is a very big part of the solution. sta rts foundation of music, so much music starts in these smaller venues and if we start to see the demise of the
smaller venues to the point where and dana, all around the world, there are none, music has no where there have been problems getting hold of supplies, to start and it is a completely of masks for example, and i understand you got around that different picture that is hard to partly because you're making them. see working or to understand as far as in the future of music and live we already have like a problem music in particular. charlie here. with important equipment and everything because due to the sanctions and everything, by what we have tried to do is to do i'm just intrigued everyone will have to make personal decisions about, for example, as an audience member if you want to go and see them ourselves using diy techniques. james bay, they might love your music, somebody might go, maybe i we were creating designs of masks, won't go at the moment. you, too, as facemasks, and other ppe and printing them by 3d printers and some of them were a performer are thinking what would done them by hand. a performer are thinking what would a gig have to look like for me as a performer to feel comfortable not just for my own safety, if you like, that was activated in different health—wise, but also thinking about cities around syria. the crowd in front of you. have you got a picture in your mind of how we made the networks and found people that had the materials in every city. that could work? yes. i think we people that have 3d printers for example. but the main problem have, artists, and people involved, was the materials and to find the 3d have, artists, and people involved, have been thinking about how that printers because it is not common could look and work. i know i heard
to have them around here. ofa gig could look and work. i know i heard of a gig in bristol going on a couple of nights ago, it was dana, you're talking to me from damascus, but i know you have been in contact outdoors, there was covering in case with groups around syria. of rain, simple things that, where are some of the other places where the civil society efforts luckily, were thought of, it was 150 have made a difference? people, spread out in their bubbles, and three metres from the stage to i know that a lot of efforts have been made around. the first row of people and there were a group of biomedical a p pa re ntly the first row of people and apparently it went over brilliantly. engineers who have made masks there are lots of unanswered and supplies centres with them. a lot of efforts have questions about details that we'd been made in aleppo, all like to know about, especially and damascus for sure. all like to know about, especially all these small venues, all these venues that have been told they can open up at the start of august. it is details, the devil is in the it is not hard to find people detail and we need to get answers on to initiate for this because syrian all of those smaller but bigger people have been used to helping questions because there is clearly a each other, especially during these years. and the social activity has been way and we need tojump on questions because there is clearly a way and we need to jump on that quick so we can bring peoples jobs very active and high. backin quick so we can bring peoples jobs back in this important, massive industry. meanwhile, loads of you have survived through the first artists have been using the time to lockdown, but i think cases are now rising again. create new music in knock—down and are people worried about you have as well. your new single is a big outbreak in syria? out, let's have a listen to chew on

skeleton crew, following all the lockdown rule so it was interesting in that respect. of course, it was because if we lose prevention, we don't have the sufficient abilities to deal with the high outside, but it was fun to do it. it felt more like a day at work than number of cases. anything had for a long time. felt more like a day at work than anything had for a long timem felt more like a day at work than anything had for a long time. it is anything had for a long time. it is a moment in time now and in the future. thanks for talking to us. no and if it does get worse, and lockdown comes back, worries, thank you. that will be very difficult for people who are trying to make enough money to survive. that's all from us this morning. breakfast is back with you tomorrow morning from six o'clock. goodbye. it already has been a very difficult time for people because in the first lockdown, a lot of people work day by day and make their money and their food and basic equipment day by day. we have talked a lot about civil society efforts and what people can do for themselves. how important is that going to be in rebuilding syria going forward? it is very important because eventually, people are the basic stone in rebuilding the country. it is our responsibility. it's our country.

nurseries and colleges will reopen. from october, the government intends to allow audiences to return to stadiums, while conferences and other business events can also resume. the changes come at the same time as warnings that the winter could bring further outbreaks. we can speak now to our political correspondentjessica parker. jessica, what has the reaction been? there seems to be a little bit of a disconnect between what the prime minister has been saying and what his chief advisers have been telling us? yes, and! yes, and i think borisjohnson will face further questions about his plans going forward. among them, for example, from august one, as you are saying a moment ago, this change to the advice which currently says work from home if you can, borisjohnson is saying he wants employers to have
more discretion. they have been some suggestions that is rather passing the buck onto businesses, but it also came one day after his own chief scientific adviser, patrick vallance, said there was no reason to change the current advice. the prime minister stressed yesterday it is all very much conditional, this plan on controlling the virus, or people sticking to the rules, but perhaps to offer a bit of incentive he dangled this rather tantalising prospect. it is my strong and sincere hope that we will be able to review the outstanding restrictions and allow a more significant return to normality from november at the earliest, possibly in time for christmas. now, labour's first minister in wales, marked rexford, said he thought that was a rather sunny view of things. borisjohnson also talked about social distancing and the one metre rule and said it was possible but by november at the earliest, we could start to move
away from those kinds of measures. hours later his own chief medical officer, chris whitty, speaking before a lords committee, suggested measures like social distancing would need to be in place for a long time. there are some things which we started right at the beginning which absolutely have to continue over a long period of time. washing hands, isolation, household isolation. then we have added to that things like contact tracing, most recently face coverings, and these are issues around distancing which have been varied, but the reality is that it remains an important part of this mix, and how it is interpreted in different environments. it has evolved, but it has not gone away. all of these need to continue for a long period of time. now, of course there are concerns about a possibility of a second wave this winter. respiratory viruses tend to thrive in the colder months. yesterday the government outlined big mitigation measures, ploughing money into the nhs, a flu vaccine
programme, expanding test and trace, but that headline grabber, boris johnson saying they could be some kind of return to normality by christmas, he did say it was just a possibility, but clearly not a hope everybody thinks is necessarily that realistic. the metropolitan police deputy commissioner says images posted on social media, of an officer kneeling on a man's neck during an arrest in islington, on thursday evening, are "extremely disturbing." the officer has been suspended, and another officer has been placed on restricted duties. last night a man was charged with possession of a knife in a public place. danny shaw reports. holidaymakers who were given refund credit notes, rather than cash, for their cancelled package holiday are being reassured their money is safe. previously customers would have lost their holiday if the company they were travelling with went bust, but credit notes for future holidays will now be covered by the atol protection scheme.
katie prescott reports. jennifer and her partner were due to get married in las vegas injune. the coronavirus put that trip on hold. the couple is still waiting for a refund. we need that money to pay for the wedding that we've rearranged, so we're just chasing them, we just keep asking them, please, please, please, will you refund us? they're just saying there's a queue. £6,000, which is what ours cost, is not a small amount of money to anybody. to normal people like us, especially when my partner's been furloughed for three months. travellers who see their holidays cancelled should get a refund within14 days. but given the sheer number of cancellations the travel industry has seen over the past few months, many have struggled to meet that, and have instead been issuing credit refund notes for holidays at a later date. the concern has been, though, if those companies go under, that travellers would lose their money and their holiday. the government has stepped
in to change this, pledging to underwrite or refund credit notes issued between the 10th of march and the 30th of septembert this year, up until the 30th of september 2021. this will cover atol—protected booking specifically cancelled due to covid—19. the body that regulates the airlines says this should give travellers peace of mind. it gives consumers that confidence to accept these credit notes, if they don't want to accept a refund. they can still take the refund if that's what they want, but then it also gives companies the opportunity to encourage those customers to book with them again in the future and start to get that pipeline of customers for them moving forward. it's hoped the change will keep people relaxed about taking a break. the owner of the ask italian and zizzi pizza chains is shutting 75 restaurants with the loss of up to 1,200 jobs. the closures are part of a rescue deal for the azzurri group and 225 locations will continue to operate. the company said the coronavirus had hit restaurants hard.
president trump has vowed not to order americans to wear masks to contain the spread of coronavirus. his remarks, given in an interview with fox news, appear to contradict the country's top infectious disease specialist, dr anthony fauci, who has urged all americans to wear masks to prevent a further rise in cases. there have been more than 139,000 deaths in the us, the highest death toll in the world. now take a look at these met office radar pictures. it looks like it was raining over parts of london, kent and sussex yesterday. but in fact it was a dry day there. this blue cloud was actually a swarm of flying ants heading across the south—east. during the summer, ants can take to the skies en masse, usually on warm, humid and windless days. ididn't i didn't know yesterday was the flying hours. there was a day last week, wasn't there? there is a bit
ofa week, wasn't there? there is a bit of a mess around flying out today. there is one day, think it happens over a period of weeks depending on climate and temperature. over a period of weeks depending on climate and temperaturelj over a period of weeks depending on climate and temperature. i genuinely thought it was one day and they all co—ordinated. thought it was one day and they all co-ordinated. they had little mobilephone co—ordination? seriously, until you just told me that, i thought it was all on one day. i suppose, that, i thought it was all on one day. isuppose, with that, i thought it was all on one day. i suppose, with the place that you are in... it is only one day full yeah. in your own back garden. captain sir tom moore was knighted by the queen yesterday, honouring his heroic fundraising efforts in which he raised more than £32 million for the nhs. the second world war veteran walked 100 laps of his garden in the days leading up to his 100th birthday in april. more than a million people had petitioned for him to be honoured. sarah campbell reports. walking out onto the quadrangle at windsor castle. the honours system has been on hold since lockdown
began, but captain sir tom was considered an exceptional case. so exceptional that this would be the first face—to—face engagement with a member of the public the queen has been seen carrying out since march. the sun shone, and adhering to socially distant guidelines, she used the sword which had belonged to her father, used the sword which had belonged to herfather, george vi ‘s, two nights captain thomas moore. —— to knight. to meet the queen was more than anyone could expect. i mean, it was... never, ever, ever did i imagine that i should get so close to the queen and have such a kind message from her. that was really outstanding. it really was truly outstanding. it really was truly outstanding. and can you explain the message? what did she say? no. that is between you and her majesty? that is between you and her majesty? that is between you and her majesty? that is between the queen and i. i have
been really honoured that this should happen, and i am thrilled that it did happen, and thank you everybody who subscribed to the funds, i really appreciated, and thank you all very much. it all started with a family challenge to walk 100 lengths of the garden to mark his upcoming 100th birthday. sir tom'sjoni mark his upcoming 100th birthday. sir tom's joni captured the imagination of people around the world. the original target was to raise £1000 for nhs charities. the final amount topped 32 million. on his birthday, he received an estimated 140,000 birthday cards, and a fly past from the raf. calls for him to be honoured for his effo rts for him to be honoured for his efforts resulted in the announcement that he was to be honoured. his family had been at his side throughout and were of course there to support him on his big day. we have stood by in or as a family as
these amazing things have happened to him and we were so delighted, we never wanted the limelight. it is him. he is the beacon of hope. never wanted the limelight. it is him. he is the beacon of hopelj can't believe we are actually here. we come and visit sometimes, but i'm speechless! he is of a generation who has known the queen most of his life. well, i think he felt he fought alongside her, and that she was there as a steadying force really from use, from being a young boy. and so for him, this is the most special thing. capt sir tom managed to provide some hope and some confidence during some very dark times, as well as raise millions of pounds. his investiture here behind windsor castle's walls felt like a very personal thank you from the queen. there is only one queen, and to get a message from the queen, there is no value that can be placed on that. and the journey continues for this new night. his
memoirs are soon to continues for this new night. his memoirs are soon to be released, along with a children's book, and there is a charitable foundation set up there is a charitable foundation set up in his name. and assuming, modest and humble, and completely inspirational. yes, all of those plaudits true, and it is also true to say he is going to be talking to us at 9:10am from his home. that is coming up a little later on. it isa it is a remarkable story, that one. and the weather was good to him yesterday, which is lovely. will it be good to us today? not to all of us, if by good you mean sunny. not to all of us, if by good you mean sunny. for not to all of us, if by good you mean sunny. for some, not to all of us, if by good you mean sunny. for some, there is some fine weather around. here is a picture from one of our weather watchers in aberdeenshire, paddle balding to begin the day. —— boarding. it is looking nice and bright on the other side of the uk, that was the scene in sussex a short time ago. in between, something different. you can see on the satellite the stripe of cloud. this
weather front is straddling simple parts of the uk at the moment and it is not going to move very quickly at all through today, so these same areas will continue to see outbreaks of rain. we are especially talking about parts of northern england, wales, and some parts of the midlands. north of that we have a slice of sunshine but also some showers pushing on towards the north and west of scotland, and also into northern ireland. quite windy in the far north. cooler and fresher here. to the south of that broad frontal system, it is fine with some sunny spells, though we do have an area of low cloud currently rolling its way in across the south—west of england. i think that will roll further eastwards as well, but equally, it will break up as it goes. east anglia, the south—east, down towards the south—west, sunny spells. scotla nd the south—west, sunny spells. scotland and northern ireland will see sunny scotland and northern ireland will see sunny spells and showers, a blustery feeling and cool fresh when, then we keep the patchy rain and slow—moving cloud in between. temperatures today on the cool side
for many, 17—20. towards the south—eastern corner, getting up towards 26 or 27. this probably isn't what you want to see if you own england cricket fan. there will be some interruptions to play at old trafford, with rain coming and going. it might dry up a little bit towards the end of the day is this frontal system eventually drifts out. along the line of this weather front we are likely to see heavy rainfora time front we are likely to see heavy rain for a time through the night. northern england, northern ireland and scotland, clear spells and showers, and here, quite a chilly night. some spots in north—eastern scotla nd night. some spots in north—eastern scotland getting down to four or five degrees. tomorrow, our weather front is still on the scene, still bringing cloud and some patchy rain. further north and west, we see some spells of sunshine. quite a few showers, i think, spells of sunshine. quite a few showers, ithink, blowing in towards scotland. for the majority, a cooler and fresher feel, with temperatures between 17 and 20. sunny skies for some of us some of the time.
we will talk to the transport secretary in about 15 minutes time. not least about this statement from the prime minister, the hope from him that we will return to some kind of normality by christmas, whatever normality is. it is linked directly to things like transport and the workplace, particularly. for many people there are considerable changes which, you asked people and they have different attitudes to decay few comments on that have come through on twitter this morning. paul says there were zero chance we will be back to normal without a vaccine. he isjust kicking will be back to normal without a vaccine. he is just kicking the can down the street, he reckons. others are taken by the idea falls up pauline says we have to get back was near as normal at some point. christmas if not all. time spent some money and feed the family. it is good for the look forward to something. that sense of drawing us on with a potentially beneficial impact. but these changes are
kicking in and that will happen over a period of time so we will talk now to our regular gp. let's cross to gp, dr amir khan who practices in bradford, which has the highest covid—19 infection rate in yorkshire. how does that work in practice in terms of the work you need to do and the caseload you have? good morning. yes. bradford does have a high rate, it is just not coming down at the same rate as the rest of the country. it means that we are still seeing patients with covid—19, albert a lot less than we were. we have a high—density population in the area, multicultural. the problem that that creates is that the m essa g es that that creates is that the messages coming out from the government that clubs and beaches are open, don't necessarily apply to
south asian populations or multicultural populations who do not necessarily go to those kinds of places. they can take that message is, ok, you do what you do to socialise and that may include visiting each other‘s houses in large groups and that is what spreads this virus around and prevents it from coming down at the same rate as across the country. we need more messages from higher up directed specifically at different cultures and that will help. directed specifically at different cultures and that will helplj directed specifically at different cultures and that will help. i am curious as to how, you are talking about how the area has one of the highest infection rates in yorkshire so highest infection rates in yorkshire so how closely do you work with the local authority? the prime minister yesterday spoke about more power to the local authorities in the event ofan the local authorities in the event of an incident happening in a specific location. this, you and the link between the local authority? we have commissioning groups that include gp influence on their which
will help to govern what we're around that area. either way, gps have been left out of the test and trace mechanism of this pandemic. i work in red hubs which means i rotate into these places where we will see patients spread —— patients with potential coronavirus symptoms but we have no mechanism to test them. gps have not been given that right. i may see a patient who comes in with the loss of smell and taste the cough and fever and we don't know because we do not have the test in the building. they then need to be redirected to the nhs on one side, or go to a testing centre. it would make more sense for this to be joined up so that we were included in that can i ask you about the new drive to, as we understand, from the prime minister, to get more people backin prime minister, to get more people back in the workplace. it encourages
simultaneously that employers make those places safe on the responsibility for doing so is with employers. are you concerned about that? people may have gotten used to the idea either they are on furlough or not working at all, or working from home who now maybe our being told to come back. i'm expecting calls about that next week. the announcement is still fairly new so they haven't come in yet. before the announcement i was getting calls from patients anxious about returning to work and it does put employers in a difficult position. but i do understand, you know, the idea of the economy having to come back as well. what i would say is, really, have a conversation with your employer and find out what has been put in place to keep you safe. are there social distancing procedures in place? basic screens? bases to wash your hands around the
workplace? and this date coincides with the time that shielding ends as world so there will be a cohort of people who go from shielding to returning to work and that is a difficult prospect. what we have donein difficult prospect. what we have done in the past is issue people with a phased return to work note. they may not have to go to work every single day. find out what you can do from home, which days you can work from home and when you do actually have to go into work. there are people who thought they could never work from home who have been working from home so really it is about communication with your employer. great to catch up with you this morning. have a great day. thank you. not far from him this morning. have a great day. thank you. not farfrom him in bradford is miked down the road in leeds this morning. what i love about this stadium is the cardboard cutouts. it looks like a giant game of guess who. it does! there are
some dogs here as well, some famous faces. they claim 15,000, a world record for this but they are quiet this morning, the morning after the night before. leeds were promoted back to the premier league for the first time in16 back to the premier league for the first time in 16 years. they were here to witness the players who were here to witness the players who were here to witness the players who were here to celebrate although they did not kick a ball. the neighbours down the road, huddersfield, did a big favour by defeating west brom so leeds were promoted without having to play tomorrow, they will still play but they don't have to do anything to get promoted. so they we re anything to get promoted. so they were on the pitch and celebrating with the chairman while outside, the real fa ns with the chairman while outside, the real fans gathered outside. with the chairman while outside, the realfans gathered outside. they we re realfans gathered outside. they were not supposed to and were told by the club, the captain and the police to stay away as when liverpool won the really, thousands gathered relief and joy. no reports of any trouble and fan celebrated a
hubs around the city as well or outside watching big screens as well. celebrations into the night, an explosion of relief and social media went wild as well. social media went wild with messages of congratulations including celebrities like nicky byrne from westlife who tweeted "finally leeds united are back where they belong! congrats to all." and there were many more including presenter nicki chapman who tweeted "celebrating tonight, what a challenge for a wife. 16 long years." that is how long it has been. leeds united have been in exile from the premier league for all those years. it has been a journey fraught with financial problems, relegation is and missed opportunities. but with this unique and eccentric argentinian manager they are now backin argentinian manager they are now back in the premier league once more. in 2004 comment leeds united left the top flight in tears. the
three—time league champions hope that the drop—down would be temporary. instead, it took a generation. just three years earlier, leads were in the champions league last four but they got their spending what they could not afford. huge debts meant star players had to leave and relegation left a broken clu b leave and relegation left a broken club in freefall. soon they dropped further for club in freefall. soon they dropped furtherfor —— club in freefall. soon they dropped further for —— further down to league one. it is been a long way back. for me now to sit here and look back when i played the last game they were in the premier league, it makes you realise how long ago it really was. sleeping giant isa long ago it really was. sleeping giant is a term is far too overused that it giant is a term is far too overused thatitis giant is a term is far too overused that it is accurate about leeds united. the following and the support they have, the premier league is better with leeds united in it. the recent revival has been led by a south american. they came third in last year's championship and marcelo bielsa stayed to try again. he barely speaks the language but he is part of yorkshire fabric.
he has created football and success. no—one knows him and yet we see him all around no—one knows him and yet we see him allaround in no—one knows him and yet we see him all around in his tracksuit. it has been so long and there has been so much heartbreak and misdirection along the way and they have stuck through it through thick and thin and they deserve this now. leeds's reputation is forged in history. they last won the league title in 1992. now some young fans have never seen 1992. now some young fans have never seen them at the top but after 16 yea rs seen them at the top but after 16 years away they are in the premier league again and in football, the low points make a motion such a high. we can now talk to ricky allman from his home in shropshire, who was the young boy seen crying in the film. i remember that very well akin to,000 and fouras i remember that very well akin to,000 and four as leads were relegated. congratulations, ricky. good to see you all these years on. how did you spend last night and
what was going through your mind? i saw a twitter video of you cracking champagne open. it has been a long time coming but it is more relief than anything else, just watching that game. we did not think west brom would lose, to be fair, so i was half watching and then i got called to work for 30 minutes and then i came back and it was 20 minutes to go and it was a long 20 minutes to go and it was a long 20 minutes just watching that clock and then huddersfield finally got that second goal and that i could celebrate. take this back then to 2004, that day in bolton when you had your top off and we could see the writing on your chest and you're ina the writing on your chest and you're in a flood of tears, a symbol for the demise of leeds united. what are your memories of that day now?|j your memories of that day now?” remember going on the coach is normal and then thinking we're probably going to get relegated here but then i thought maybe, maybe we
will stay up and then that red card and brahms called four goals and is and brahms called four goals and is an 11—year—old i could not hold back the emotion. it was too much to handle. that picture has followed me all these years on, because it has been so long it is even better now that we're finally back. that picture went all around the world, didn't it? how much did it change your life in terms of being recognised? it has been amazing, really. at the time i had all sorts of reporters trying to do interviews and then since we nearly been there this week, my phone has been going non—stop with people trying to do it, telephone interviews, interviews via zoom and all sorts of stuff stop you all know how i felt back then 16 yea rs you all know how i felt back then 16 years ago, i am being you all know how i felt back then 16 years ago, iam being recognised you all know how i felt back then 16 years ago, i am being recognised all over the place, my wife and i went
to watch england play bulgaria a few months ago and we were talking to a couple of leads fans there and they we re couple of leads fans there and they were literally talking about me ten minutes earlier. that's amazing. you are part of history, isn't it? does that one moment, that one release of emotion changed your life in so many ways. as a leeds fan what is the last 16 years been like with all the clu b last 16 years been like with all the club has been through, lots of bizarre times and blows and embarrassing moments as well.m bizarre times and blows and embarrassing moments as well. it has been crazy. a rollercoaster. i never thought it would take this long to get back but i did not think we would get lower than we did that day when we went down to league one. there were good times as well and good cup results and things like that but it has been a long time coming. i really did not think it would take this long but it is leeds united and we never do anything
simple to do it has been a pleasure to speak to you after all these yea rs to speak to you after all these years and hopefully by october it seems you can come back here for real. thank you very much for joining us and enjoy the celebrations this weekend. that is ricky from worcestershire joining us. sport is about history and it does repeat itself because 1990, liverpool won the league to just the league at the time, the first division of the premier league. leeds united were promoted and it was my first sporting job for the bbc, reporting on leaves going up down in bournemouth. and here we are, all these years on. all we need now is a picture from you, mike, circa 1990. that would complete the picture for us. the headlines are coming up in a moment.
hello, this is breakfast with rachel burden and charlie stayt. we'll have the sport and the weather for you later this morning, as well as the main headlines. but first this morning, the prime minister, borisjohnson, has expressed a wish to "return to normal" by christmas, and is encouraging people to go back to work and get using public transport again. well, we're joined now by the transport secretary, grant shapps, for more on how this will happen. we will talk a bit about plans to protect holiday makers in a moment or two, but that return to normality the prime minister has been talking about, what does normal mean to you? well, getting things going again, making sure that people are able to go back to theirjobs, we have seen a lot ofjob losses and we are going to make sure that the economy is there for them. i suppose it means
giving people a roadmap, really, so we can give hope are still planning for the worst as well. that is what it means to me. the end of social distancing would be normalfor it means to me. the end of social distancing would be normal for most people. is that what you envisage? eventually we want to get there, but clearly we want to do it in a way thatis clearly we want to do it in a way that is safe, and watching the figures all the time, very closely, everybody knows the drill by now, we have got to make sure we're on top of this virus, as are still at the moment with the reproduction rate less tha n moment with the reproduction rate less than one. by christmas? how optimistic are you by that?” less than one. by christmas? how optimistic are you by that? i think it is possible we can get there. the prime minister, and myself and others, have spoken about this this week, because we want to give people some sense of direction, because a lot of people are running businesses or rely on the christmas period, for example, and need to know that if everything goes well, this is our intention, but as i say, you cannot get away from the fact that this
virus is, in many ways, still a bit ofan virus is, in many ways, still a bit of an unknown, and of course it depends on how millions of people respond and how good and alert we are in terms of all the things that we now know about very well, like washing our hands, and for the time being, keeping that social distancing in place. scientists are pretty sceptical about christmas being a return to normality, as you describe it, and when you look at the numbers, the decline has happened but now we have plateaued over the last couple of weeks, and you are right, be r number is below one but it is just below one and it hasn't gone down much further. does that concern you? well, taking that in reverse, r is between 0.7 and 0.9 right now, which is where it has been for a long time. it means it is reducing between 1% and 5% per day, in terms of the number of infections. i have been included strategy meetings with both the medical officer and the chief scientific officer this week on more than one occasion and they have said what they have said throughout,
which is that these are judgement calls which we cannot make a scientist, you have to make them as the leaders. i don't make bones about it. these are difficult, complicated, you know, often very closejudgements about complicated, you know, often very close judgements about what you do, when, and how. but we do think it is right, on balance, to give people a sense of hope, a roadmap, and tell people, if things go to plan, this is where we would hope to be, while all the time planning at every stage, as we have in dealing with, for example, new powers for local lockdowns this weekend, so that we can be ready for the worst as well. i suppose it is balancing hope with realism, isn't it? you say it is down to millions of people as to whether we get there christmas. your m essa g es very whether we get there christmas. your messages very much whether we get there christmas. your messages very much that you want people to get back to work next month, you want them to get back on public transport. are you talking about public transport operating at closer to capacity? yes, but we have
got public transport back in many cases very got public transport back in many cases very close to capacity already, for example, on tfl the trains are back, the main rails, so we are quite close to full capacity. but the usage of public transport is way down. so we have in very careful to ask people not to flood back to quickly, and they have not. we are seeing in many cases quite empty trains, particularly during the day, and we are saying that actually, there is more capacity there, anybody can now come back to public transport, not just workers. anybody can now come back to public transport, notjust workers. you must wear a face covering. that is the law on public transport now, i will remind people. and obviously all the other commonsense things about washing your hands, not touching yourface, et about washing your hands, not touching your face, et cetera. about washing your hands, not touching yourface, et cetera. but there is capacity, and that is the message that the prime minister put out yesterday. you can now use public transport. i would recommend trying to avoid the busier times of day, but as people return to work, and the prime minister asked
employers and employees to look at doing that, especially from the first of august, that public transport will be there, although, again, please walk or cycle if you can, because active transport is also good for people and good for people's health, of course, as well as anything else. clearly social distancing is out on the tube and the terms and lots of nonmetropolitan centres, but are you saying as well but on the trains, social distancing doesn't need to apply? really, what i'm saying is that there is a lot of space public transport right now. it is probably being used less than 20%. there is capacity even with social distancing, which is now one metre plus, with mitigating factors like face coverings. so we are saying there is actually some space there. please use it. please use some of these facilities to see how busy the trains are. i suppose i should be more clear on this. what i am saying is, if the train is full, does that bother you? for the time being, people absolutely want to continue
to observe all of the rules, the social distancing, which is a one metre plus rule with a face covering, that should all stay in place. my point is, and i have been tracking these figures incredibly carefully through this crisis, as you would imagine, obsessively so, but we don't have, right now, an issue with capacity on our railway, for example, and we can take a lot more people than we are taking at the moment. 0k. more people than we are taking at the moment. ok. in terms of people getting back to work, if you have a situation where your boss says, i wa nt situation where your boss says, i want you back in the office, but you don't feel safe, how do you resolve that one? well, one of those things is to actually get there in the first place, which is why we have changed the message on the travelling part of that. the second thing is that it is absolutely the case that employers have to make the workplace covidsafe, which means, for example, hand sanitiser is being able to observe social distancing, probably able to observe social distancing, pro ba bly lots able to observe social distancing, probably lots of other changes depending on the type of workplace, of course, that will need to be made. and if that has not been done,
health and safety executive, who will be funded additionally through this crisis, would certainly have something to say about it, and in other cases, local authorities, public health england and others. so ifound, public health england and others. so i found, actually, that public health england and others. so ifound, actually, that employers have been very responsible, by and large, throughout this crisis. and what we want employers and employees to do now is work together to bring people back to the workplace and do so people back to the workplace and do so safely. that is really the message the prime minister was providing. i hear what you are and saying in many cases that might work. but they may be incidents where the employer says, we have fulfilled our obligations here, we have a right to ask you to come back to work, but for whatever reason people might not feel comfortable. it might be that they have been shielding for the past four or five months and they are not psychologically ready. in that situation, is the employer entitled to compel individuals to come back to compel individuals to come back to work? in that sort of situation, right now, shielding is still in place... i am talking in august. yes, i see, place... i am talking in august. yes, isee, when place... i am talking in august. yes, i see, when it comes to an end.
we would absolutely expect and ask employers and employees to work sensibly together, and put a full employee protection in place. and as i say, health and safety executive would certainly have something to say, if they are not using all of the guidelines, but your point, i suppose, is, how do we get people to feel comfortable, and of course the ultimate answer to that is to carry on fighting this virus and make sure that the reproduction rate, which is between 0.7 and 0.9 the moment, continues to stay low and continues to decline, so the issue is effectively resolved through fighting the virus. some people say that you need, in that case, to then follow a policy of elimination in the fire of the virus, as they are doing in scotland, in england as well. certainly the chief medical officer, chris whitty, says the social distancing policies need to continue for a long time to come. they have also said there has been a
failure to invest heavily in public health over the last number of years and that was one of the reasons the uk had not dealt particularly well with this virus. do you accept that? well, sir patrick is the expert on this, iam well, sir patrick is the expert on this, i am not going to get into a debate about it, because i do not know the facts as well as he does. what i do know is about the structural crisis and what has happened during this crisis. when i look today, i see that we can carry out 300,000 test today, at the start of this week we only did 2000. we will increase that to half a million by the autumn. it does mean, and this partially answers your previous question, that it is there, on demand, for anybody, regardless of what role they are in, you don't have to be an nhs worker, to order up have to be an nhs worker, to order upa have to be an nhs worker, to order up a test if they feel they have the symptoms of coronavirus. and by the way, the results are coming in, 80 or 90% of them, within 24 hours. way, the results are coming in, 80 or 9096 of them, within 24 hours. we should point out that the capacity
of test is not the same as tests being carried out, of course. no, but just being carried out, of course. no, butjust on being carried out, of course. no, but just on that being carried out, of course. no, butjust on that point, since you challenged me on that, i looked at how many tests were carried out, most recently 313,000. so actually, slightly... tests, or individual people? tests, or individual people being tested? occasionally some of those will be the same person being tested more than once, which is why i was about to say it is why it is over the capacity there. but the reality is, we have got a lot of testing capacity now which we did not have at the beginning of this crisis and we are better prepared for people returning to the workplace, because everybody can find out immediately whether or not they have got coronavirus and then do all the things we all know about so do all the things we all know about so naturally now, like self—isolating and the rest of it. new protection today for holiday makers who have had to cancel holidays. can you explain how that is going to work, and if a holiday company does go bust and you have a
credit note in their name, what happens? does it convert to cash? up until now, anybody who is a package holiday maker will have been asking potentially just for a straight refund. maybe because they were aware that if the holiday company itself went down, then a credit loan would not be honoured. what i have done today say, actually, we need to make sure we going to stand behind atol, which is of course the atol protected scheme for package holidays, so if you do have a credit note that will still be honoured by the government, even if that travel company goes down. that is both going to reassure consumers, holidaymakers, but also prevents, i the travel companies who have had a pretty tough time, let's face it, from going down because they are not going to have to automatically provide a refund unless that is what the person wants. so that provides more flexibility, with the
government standing behind the consumer and the travel companies. thank you, grant shapps, transport secretary. it was music to the ears of fans of art and culture, as concert venues and theatres were told they can re—open at the beginning of august. but does this mean that things can return to normal? many venues say there's no way they can reopen their doors with social distancing measures in place, and there's still major questions about how safe it is to sing and perform in public. our arts correspondent david sillito reports. the room is particle free, super clea n, the room is particle free, super clean, filled with sensors. everyone is in medical scrubs, wearing masks. this is serious science. and what they are studying here is singing. hgppy they are studying here is singing. happy birthday. it just they are studying here is singing. happy birthday. itjust seems so innocent, doesn't it? but when there is so much uncertainty and anxiety about possible infection, we really need to know what is coming out of
people's mounts. at the outset of the coronavirus pandemic there were descriptions of clusters of covert enquires around the world, and that led to a lot of anxiety about how this happened. it wasn't clear if it was aerosol droplets or perhaps even covid —— person—to—person contact. from very early on, singing was identified as a potentially dangerous activity, and since that time, we have looking for signs to actually guide us as to whether that is the case, or whether it is the other non— singing aspects of those meetings that caused the problems. now, with a number of scientists raising questions about possible transmission of the air through breath, this is vital research. we know that when you speak is much the same as when you cough or sneeze, you generate a lot of very small particles, called aerosols, but you also generate some big droplets, and it is the big droplets that are about the diameter of a human hair
which settle out in gravity very quickly, within one or two metres. the much smaller respiratory particles can be airborne for minutes to hours. so what we are actually looking to measure from people's singing and playing brass instruments, those very small respiratory activities which will remain airborne for some time. respiratory activities which will remain airborne for some timem has implications. we will not be seeing a mass singalong at the last night of the proms this year, but just how many people can they safely have on stage? the current guidelines say singers should be standing side to side with a three metre gap, but that would mean the traditional chorus could stretch out of the royal albert hall down to the natural history museum. and for smaller venues, social distancing is going to make reopening very difficult. the capacity of band on the wall in manchester will go from 342 around 80, and they think a lot of older patrons just won't want to come. reopening isjust not feasible. actually, we have decided we are going to close at the
beginning of august. so actually, just as this is announced, we are closing down, for exactly the reasons, no—one is closing down, for exactly the reasons, no—one is touring, all the tours for the september i counselled, you know, we run an amazing venue and it is not like any other business. we are absolutely dependent on that supply of artists, those people touring. so while venues are being allowed to reopen in august, there are many questions about whether they can afford to and reassuring the public and performers about just how safe reassuring the public and performers aboutjust how safe it is to get back on stage. lots of performers asking that question. and they have had to adapt. people see performers doing stuff from home, over zoom, all those kinds of things. and we'll be chatting about this with the singerjames bay a little later on the programme. here's ben with a look at this morning's weather. i believe last night was a decent night for comet spotting?
really clear in the sky? it was for some parts of the uk. a good chance to see the comment making its closest pass on slide 23 so you still have time to get out there and look for it in the north—east in the sky over the next few nights. as far as this morning goes, look at this. a beautiful start of the aberdeenshire coast, a lovely morning for early paddle boarding. not looking bad for our weather watch are either in cambridgeshire. i've shown you the driest and sunniest bits but in between something different because on the satellite picture you can see this type of cloud. this is a slow—moving weather front which will affect some of the central portions of the uk through today bringing a lot of cloud and outbreaks of rain. so three slices of weather, really, as we start this morning. this is our weather front. to the we start this morning. this is our weatherfront. to the north we start this morning. this is our weather front. to the north we have spells of sunshine. a cool fresh feel with the chilly motocross parts
of north—east scotland and a few showers pushing it from the north—west. windy and the far north as well. along with a front, outbreaks of rain coming and going and then to the south towards the south coast of england it is essentially a day of sunny spells but we have got a lump of low cloud rolling its way and at the moment across the south—west of england. that will roll further eastwards through the morning but it will also break up so sunny spells to the south and another warm day here. sunny spells for scotland and northern ireland as well but with showers and a windy story across the finals of scotland. here is a frontal system moving so do that make frontal system moving so do that ma ke slowly frontal system moving so do that make slowly southwards the midlands and wales. otherwise today, another warm one to the south with 26 or 27. this is not what you want to see if you are a fan of cricket. the second test match, the third day and we will see rain coming and going at old trafford. perhaps drying up into the evening is a frontal system eventually pulls southwards, notice we could see another pulse of heavy
rain running along the front as it drops down into parts of the midlands, east anglia and the south—east. clear skies to the north—east, showers and north—west scotla nd north—east, showers and north—west scotland and a cool night across northern areas, particularly some spots in north—east scotland reaching three orfour spots in north—east scotland reaching three or four degrees. for tomorrow we keep a lot of cloud and outbreaks of rain for a good part of the day through east anglia toward southern counties of england and elsewhere these skies will brighten and we will see sunshine, a few showers across scotland but a cool and fresh feel for a lot of us by this stage with temperatures generally between 17 and 20 degrees. we finally lose the weather front through sunday night dry weather for all parts as we head into monday. it is 7.48. thank you for being with us. let's take a look at this week's click.
welcome to click and wear a mask. if thatis welcome to click and wear a mask. if that is the advice you were given, just do it. in fact, in some parts in fact in some part of the world it is just the norm anyway. so do it. hey, lara. hello. i hope you have been bending the metal bit over your nose, now i know about it seems really obvious. absolutely right and i didn't know that, until recently, and it does help it to sit in place so it is very useful information. it does help but it still doesn't fit perfectly although i may have a solution for that later in the programme. it has been a busy week in the world of tech. the uk government has decided to remove all of huawei's 5g kit from the country by 2027. this is a decision with political ramifications and it will also likely delay the rollout of 5g here by two or three years. huawei says the move was bad news for anyone in the uk
with a mobile phone. now because the e3 videogames mega trade show was cancelled this year, games companies have been doing their launches at online events instead. and last week saw one of the biggest online showcases, the ubisoft forward event but it coincided with three of the company's executives having to resign over an investigation into sexual misconduct. for years the gaming world has been overshadowed by examples of abuse and toxic behaviour. and we report now on how it is not just the pandemic disrupting the videogames industry. games megapublisher ubisoft is currently mired in an abuse scandal centred around its studios. the company put out a tweet before its latest online showcase, acknowledging that it would not be addressing these issues during its event. more on this later.
at the event itself, the company did reveal the casting of giancarlo esposito, of breaking bad and better call saul fame, as the villain in the latest far cry title. esposito has been cast as a dictator called anton castillo, the ruler of a fictious island in the first—person shooter far cry 6. the player assumes the role of a guerilla fighter attempting to take down the dictator and his government from the island's jungles to the streets of its capital city. i spoke with the actor about donning a performance capture rig to create a villain who is more than a searingly chilling end of level boss. you have played several characters in recent years who had a quiet menace about them. did you bring that to this game or did you go in a different direction? i always believe that quiet menaces and a reflective menace is the most frightening menace. so you doubt me.
he isa he is a dictator so that whole word,. tait. it gives us the energy of someone, it does not give us the energy of someone of someone, it does not give us the energy of someone who is kind and gentle. are you a monster? good art often makes us think about our world and what is going on in our own lives. do you think this game has the potential to affect the player in that way? oh, my goodness! what a great question. i do. i feel like this storyline is really powerful and without giving anything away it is about relationships. father and son. everything ifeel like i do has some sort of social imprint. my guess is that some of the stuff i thank god that i have been involved with, such as better call saul, the show i do, and breaking bad, godfather of harlem, those statements are in these projects. and there is certainly a statement
you can find in this game. what did you think of the virtual version of you created for the game? i was blown away. i sat there amazed. i argued, told them they were full of garbage! if that is me, why not just film me?! we all go boom. we are yet to see any gameplay but the title is slated for release in february 2021. we also got a glimpse of hype escape. another multiplayer shooter. as well as actual gameplay from assassin's creed valhalla and another show —— game based in a new dystopian london.
but recent real—world events at ubisoft have cast a shadow over the compa ny‘s activities. over the past couple of weeks, many women and other people working in the games industry have come forward with stories about workplace bullying or harassment and that runs the gamut from toxic workplace culture right through to sexual harassment and quite early in this wave, ubisoft‘s name started coming up again and again. this has led to dismissals and resignation with two senior executives resigning and a third leaving their post. ubisoft gave us this comment. these recent claims describe workplace behaviours that are simply unacceptable. we do not and will not tolerate abuse, harassment or discrimination ofany kind. upon learning of these allegations we immediately launched independent investigations and have already announced a series of measures aimed at driving profound changes within the company as well as several significant personnel changes.
the problem with a lot of creative industries, not just games, is where you have superstar creative people who are seen as untouchable and indispensable to their companies and sometimes that can create an environment in which those people feel they can get away with anything. ubisoft is not the only publisher with workplace problems. last year ryder ggames came into the spotlight. there was a lawsuit launched against them by ex—employees alleging sexist discrimination at that workplace. the cause ripples throughout the game industry. as we approach the next console generation and videogames achieve ever greater technical and artistic heights, it seems the games industry still has work to do with how it conducts its affairs in the real world. now i don't know about you,
but as face coverings are becoming a normal part of life, i have struggled to find one that fits and stays on. this slides off my nose, this one is baggy around the ears. so could a personalised 3d printed one like this be the solution? out of the covid we have seen a few companies coming up with 3d printed solutions but one common problem we find is that these masks are not customised so they are a universal size and shape. not these however. this imperial college london research project re—purposes custom—fit 3d printed masks, a concept they were originally working on for people suffering with sleep apnoea. now they hope to create perfect fitting respirators at a time when it seems we could be wearing them a lot. and all you need to get started is a smart phone. first i need to do is scan my face. there are a couple of ios apps that
seem to work to do this. the first is scandy pro. i'm going to have to hold very still. although it was a little fiddly to get the image right, i'm told that this app is especially accurate. there is also bellus3d which i thought was simpler to use and virtual me did look pretty realistic. i guess i'll just find out how the mask fits when it actually arrives. currently you do need an iphone 10 or above to carry out this process but alternatives are being looked into, including some for android users. job done. you then upload your scan to the mensura mask website. specially—created code is used to extract the necessary data and that is sent to autodesk‘s fusion 360 platform to tweak and rebuild the model to fit your face. this should provide you with a free file of your mask to print. now assuming you do not have a 3d
printer in your living room, there are plenty of companies out there that can print it for you at the cost of around a fiver. but while we might all like a better—fitting mask that does not steam up our glasses, the real aim of this project is a much bigger picture. right now, the masks that you can wear are just as good as a face covering if not better. but as we get better, as we get the technology more mature, we will go through the certification process to check that the materials are safe and check the filters work properly. of course, the outcome of each individual mask will notjust depend on an accurate scan but also the quality of the 3d printing. so the mask has arrived. can we have the grand unveiling? ta—da! wow! that is quite space age, actually. how does it feel?
how does it fit? it definitely fits well. i can feel it is absolutely moulded to my face and i think it would be ok with glasses, no steaming up. but bizarrely, my ears keep popping. i can tell it is really airtight because your voice hardly makes it out of the mask. can you breathe? that is a filter in the end, isn't it? it is and these filters need changing every day but they are standard ones you can buy online and the whole mask can be fully disinfected. is it comfortable? it certainly fitjust right and the edges do feel quite soft so i think if i worked in a job where i had to wear this all day then i could see the benefit. but it does feel a little over the top to just go and buy some groceries. and that is it for the shortcut this week. in theirfull—length and that is it for the shortcut this week. in their full—length version there is also a fascinating look at facebook‘s attempt to clean up its act. that is available right now on i player. you can keep up with the
tea m i player. you can keep up with the team on social media at bbc click. thanks for watching and we will see you soon. good morning and welcome to breakfast with rachel burden and charlie stayt. our headlines today: borisjohnson's vision of a return to normality by christmas — amid warnings the winter may bring further problems. the transport secretary tells us it's right to offer hope to people. the metropolitan police suspends an officer after footage emerges
of him kneeling on a man's neck during an arrest. leeds are back in the premier league after 16 years. there were scenes of celebration here at elland road last night. i'll be testing the mood in the city this morning. we are on board the great survivor, reopening today as a visitor attraction and museum for the first time since the covid lockdown. it is also the 50th anniversary of its return from being a wreck in the falkland islands. good morning. another warm day in prospect across the south of the uk. sunshine and showers and a cooler feel in the north of the uk and in between cloud bringing outbreaks of rain. the forecast for wherever you are spending your saturday later on here on breakfast.
it's saturday the 18th ofjuly. our top story: the government is standing by its vision of a return to normality by christmas, as the latest changes to coronavirus restrictions in england come into effect. councils now have new powers to close shops and cancel events to manage local outbreaks of coronavirus. it's one of a series of measures to help ease lockdown over the coming months. let's take a look at what's planned. from july 25th, a week today, indoor gyms, pools and other sports facilities can reopen. august 1st will see the return of live indoor events and wedding receptions with up to 30 people will be allowed to go ahead. the prime minister will also update employers on plans to get more of us back into workplaces. from september, in england, schools, nurseries and colleges will reopen. from october, the government intends to allow audiences to return to stadiums, while conferences and other business
events can also resume. the transport secretary has told this programme it's important to offer hope to people. we can speak now to our political correspondentjessica parker — we correspondentjessica parker — have a road map ab that we have a road map about the changes that lie ahead and simultaneously we have repeated warnings from scientists about the risks that lie ahead going into the autumn. yes, andi ahead going into the autumn. yes, and i think there has been some interesting contrasts over the last few days between what the prime minister is saying and what some of his lead scientists are seeing. yesterday on working from home if you can, but advice is going to be updated from the 1st of august, businesses being given more discretion, and also borisjohnson suggesting that on social distancing he would like to try is possible to start moving away from that from
november at the earliest but on the working from home guidance the chief scientific adviser said he didn't think there was any reason to change that guidance and on social distancing the chief medical officer suggested social distancing, the one metre rule, i would need to be with us for a long time, so that contrast was put to the transport secretary on this programme a few moments ago. i have been in covid strategy meetings with the chief medical officer and chief scientific officer than they have said what they have said throughout which is these are judgment calls that we cannot make as scientists and you have to make as scientists and you have to make as leaders and these are difficult, complicated, often very close judgments about what you do when and how, but we do think it is right on balance to give people a sense of hope, i road map, and tell people if things go to plan and this is where
we would hope to be, while all the time planning at every stage, as we have been doing with new powers for local lockdowns this weekend, so that we can be ready for the worst as well. the prime minister stressed the conditionality of all the plans that are outlined, controlling the virus, people sticking to the rails, because there are concerns about the possibility of a second wave this winter. the government has talked about these mitigating measures ploughing money into the nhs, but as ever it is a balance of risk and people may disagree as to where the balance lies. for the moment, thank you. the metropolitan police deputy commissioner says images — posted on social media — of an officer kneeling on a man's neck during an arrest in islington, on thursday evening, are "extremely disturbing". the officer has been suspended, and another officer has been placed on restricted duties. last night a man was charged with possession of a knife in a public place. danny shaw reports.
get off me! get off my neck! an officer appears to kneel on the neck of a man police are trying to detain. i haven't done anything. they were called after reports of a fight. the footage, shot by someone at the scene, shows the struggle with police. we have blurred the faces of those involved for legal reasons. at this point, the officer's knee seems to be on the ground but his hand remains on the man's head. when i went to see what happened there was a crowd and his knee was stood on his neck, like i told you, and i got down there and his knee was on his neck still. the crowd has told him, screaming, "take your knee of his neck," so he listened to the crowd and removed his knee. scotland yard believes in recent weeks officers have been unfairly targeted for using force after footage of incidents has
appeared in social media. police say clips tell only part of the story but on this occasion the met‘s response to the video has been robust. in a statement, sir steve house, the met‘s second highest—ranking officer said... the incident comes after black lives matter protests sparked by the death of george floyd in america. a police officer knelt on his neck for almost eight minutes. after this arrest the suspect was taken to a police station and examined by a doctor. he has been charged with possession of a knife. danny shaw, bbc news. holidaymakers who were given refund credit notes rather than cash for their cancelled package holiday are being reassured their money is safe. the authorities have clarified
that these refund promises are guaranteed even if the travel company which provided them goes bust. they are distinct from holiday vouchers — which do not have the same protection. anyone whose package holiday is cancelled has the right to a full cash refund. the owner of the ask italian and zizzi pizza chains is shutting 75 restaurants with the loss of up to 1,200 jobs. the closures are part of a rescue deal for the azzurri group and 225 locations will continue to operate. the company said the coronavirus had hit restaurants hard. leeds united supporters have been celebrating late into the night outside the club's stadium to celebrate their return to the premier league for the first time in 16 years. the club owner and the police had urged fans to stay at home. however, there were scenes ofjubilation outside elland road as the club's place in the top—flight was confirmed when west brom lost to huddersfield town earlier. 16 years, i can't believe it.
i was there when leeds went down. went down again, came back up, back up where we belong. jackie charlton, that's for him. it's for him, we've done it. speechless. that is one of the best moments of my life. i can't put anything into words. that'sjust amazing. absolutely buzzing. dead buzzing, we are all happy. we deserve it, we are the best team in the league. we played everyone off the park. thankfully, our local neighbours huddersfield have done us a favour. hopefully staying up themselves in doing it as well. thank you very much. the best moment of his life, one of those fans was saying. captain sir tom moore has been knighted by the queen at windsor castle, honouring his achievement of raising more than £32 million for the nhs. the second world war veteran was sponsored to walk 100 laps of his garden in the days leading up to his 100th birthday in april.
those were those wonderful scenes yesterday at windsor castle in beautiful sunshine and are very proud moment for the whole family. never ever did i imagine that i should get so close to the queen and have a such a kind message from her. that was really outstanding. it really was truly outstanding. i've been really honoured that this should happen, and i'm thrilled that it did happen, and thank you everybody who subscribed to the fund. i really appreciate and thank you all very much. and we have captain sir tom moore's first live interview since. that's in about an hour at ten past nine this morning. he was asked, what did the queen say? and he said, not seeing
anything! employers will be asked to decide whether to bring their staff back into the workplace from next month as the government continues to ease the coronavirus lockdown restrictions. the plans are part of the prime minister's hopes for the country to "return to normality" by christmas, but there are concerns among some people. i'm eager to go back to work because i miss the people. going on the tube and it's so crowded and during rush hour, that's not something i'm looking forward to. i walk to the office, i don't have to commute and take public transport. and safety measures they've implemented i've been very comfortable with. i do feel comfortable going back to work and actually i signed up to it because i'm living alone. i have really wanted to go back to work, so, yeah, i'm excited. professor sir cary cooper is a workplace psychologist and author and joins us now,
alongsidejenny watts, a mum of two, who has been working from home since the start of lockdown. jenny, people will be curious, you work in financial services, tell us how this has been for you, working from home. it is very tricky at the beginning with two small children and trying to work but since they went back into childcare it was a lot easier. i did not have a commute, we have learned to communicate more efficiently with colleagues, we do more fun things on zoom, so overall a positive experience. what is going to happen next? are your employers... ? there was a slight grimace. are your employers likely to ask you to come back to the office? do you want to? what is going to happen? they are
not at the moment but there is no firm plans. the issue i have is childcare. there is no holiday clubs for the next six weeks. we are not sure there is going to be breakfast clu bs sure there is going to be breakfast clubs or after—school clubs at school so it is going to make it very tricky for me to go back into the city centre. what about more of the city centre. what about more of the logistical things? if they want you to go back to the office, what about your commute? what about those bits, given that coronavirus has not gone away, how does that affect your thinking? i drive into the office. i work seven miles away and it takes me an hourand work seven miles away and it takes me an hour and a half in the morning sitting in traffic, so if i went back into the office it would be going back into my car and sitting in traffic, creating traffic. it is not possible for me to go on public transport because of the logistics of dropping the children at
different childcare and getting to work on time. might as pick-up with the professor. people have been through a very difficult time and now we are reaching a different place and some people who have maybe been furloughed, maybe some people have been working from home like jenny, and they might get an email from work see and we need to back and people are going to have different attitudes. yes, they will. no one size fits all. the issue is our infection rate is still reasonably high therefore it is not down to single figures so people are worried about public transport, they are worried about the office environment. most employers have dealt with it over the last couple of weeks to see this is what the offices are going to look like in terms of social distancing, wearing masks or not on the left and so on,
so we masks or not on the left and so on, so we have all of that, so if we look at people who are older or with underlying health complaints they are going to be worried that if they can work from home if their employer does this properly they should be able to work more flexibly. i think we are going to have a mixed model that people who can work from home will substantially work from home but come into the workplace from time to time. young people, by the way, young people want to go into work. they are social animals. they are young, they are new into their job and they need development and to be with other people, see young people are not going to be the problem area, but this will finally be the time when we test management. how good is your management? what all companies should do before august the 1st is get in touch with each employee. if you are in line manager you should be talking to your direct reports and finding out
if they are worried about going on on public transport or what the office might look like, what would bea office might look like, what would be a good solution for them as individuals? still working substantially from home or whatever. ona more substantially from home or whatever. on a more general level, there are some people for him being at work, the camaraderie, assuming they are happy in theirjob and they like the people they work with, that means something to them and it's quite an important part of who they are and their life, and other people will be thinking i love being at home, people are very different in that respect. they are. the important thing is very few people want to work 100% remotely as we have been doing for the last one half months. the problem is we missed our colleagues, family, the camaraderie, the water cooler experience and all of that. but even before peter mike
the movement was to flexible working where people were seeing you can, cannot as bus driver or a nurse but for the majority people in the uk they can work partly from home. we know it works. but you are right, the social experience, very few would say i want to stay at home, i can do it, i have the technology, they want to be referred colleagues and they have to go into several office environments a team built, to think of new ideas and products and services and all of that stuff. we will leave it there for now. jenny, good luck with how it pans out for you and your family good luck with how it pans out for you and yourfamily and good luck with how it pans out for you and your family and getting back to work. returning to normality is dependent on infection rates in your
local area. from today, councils in england have the power to enforce localised lockdowns, by closing pubs, cafes, shops and restaurants in areas hit by coronavirus outbreaks. we can speak now to david whipp, who is the deputy leader of pendle borough council, where infections have been increasing. not to the levels of leicester. how concerned are you about infection rates in your area at the moment? concerned but not alarmed. the positive tests are quite high in proportion to the total number of tests a nd proportion to the total number of tests and it is something we need to keep a very careful eye on. to explain the figures, looking at figures around the equivalent of 76 or 77 per 100,000 of population in leicester, it was about 120 per 100,000 of the population. you have these new powers, are you clear as to what they are and are you going to what they are and are you going to use them? we welcome the new
powers. we are still finding out the detail of how they will be below ten but the key thing is we need the resources , we but the key thing is we need the resources, we need the ability to enforce the rules. without that you can make all the rules in the world that they don't make any difference. it isa that they don't make any difference. it is a good tool for us to have. there are better tools and we would demand more detail daily data from government. we would like to have dedicated local tracing capacity as well and those ta ken dedicated local tracing capacity as well and those taken in the round ought to help us get on top of the outbreak and get things back as far as possible towards normal. clearly access to all of that information is going to be important but we repeatedly hear that local authorities want more power to do things in their local area so that hands that to you, and in terms of
enforcement are you talking about if you close down a pub you need the police to back you up and make sure that happens? i am not sure the police would have the powers but we have a limited number of environmental health officers who would be the people who would carry this out so well we get more support to have additional environmental health officers? people can check what is going on in these properties and then carry out the necessary work. a good example of how the rules are not necessarily working is on public transport where there is a rule that people should wear face masks but it is widely ignored and we are not seeing any effective enforcement that is keeping control of that. no, that clearly is an issue, we hear that repeatedly from people who work on public transport as well. on communication, we heard earlierfrom bradford as well. on communication, we heard earlier from bradford where there is a high south asian population and also in pendle a lot of families of
pakistani background, and what he was seeing was the message about getting out there, gathering in pubs, how to do that in a socially safe way, does not necessarily apply in the same way to those communities who are more likely to meet socially within people's houses and that brings with it its own dangers, doesn't it? it does. we have launched a massive campaign both generally and within the south asian community, mainly of pakistani heritage, and we have doctors from within the community putting those m essa g es within the community putting those messages out through social media, andi messages out through social media, and i am really enthused by the way in which people within all the different communities are picking this up and driving the messages home. we want people to get tested. we wa nt home. we want people to get tested. we want people without symptoms who have been in contact with people
with symptoms to get tested. those m essa g es with symptoms to get tested. those messages i hope are being heard and listened to. yes, get out and get tested. thank you very much for your time. we can give you a sense of the weather. our cameras are in bristol. this is the ss great britain and we are going to be down there celebrating events. our reporter john maguire is there. i know we are not looking at the sky. a little bit cloudy maybe. i am told it is a little bit windy. how is it for the rest of us? it is very frustrating asa rest of us? it is very frustrating as a meteorologist not to be able to see the sky! many of us are starting the day with sunshine. this is how
it looked in the scottish highlands are earlier and at the other end of the country not far from bristol this is close to exeter in devon, some blue skies. the weather is very different today under this band of cloud, a slow—moving weather front bringing outbreaks of rain across northern england, wales and the midlands and these same areas will continue to see outbreaks of rain at times as we had gone through the day so times as we had gone through the day so three slices of weather across the uk this morning. across scotland and northern ireland sunny skies for the most part but she was pushing in from the west. quite a cool and french feel. cloud and rain on and off, heavy through northern england and north wales and to the south a lot of dry weather and some sunny spells but some areas of low cloud rolling in through the south west of england. those will push further eastwards but also break up at the same time so we should see some sunshine down towards the side. the
best of that lifting temperatures to 26 degrees. rain very slowly into the midlands and wales and to the north it is a mixture of sunny spells and showers. cool and fresh in the far north and another one day towards the south—east. this does not need for great viewing if you are an england cricket fan because at old trafford we are expecting rain on and off. the chance things may try out towards the end of the day as the weather front begins to slide slowly southwards. we are expecting another pulse of pretty heavy rain to run along the seafront as it moves through england and wales. to the north and west, a chilly night in the north and tomorrow the weather front still in the picture through east anglia and southern counties of england. some sellers into north—west scotland. elsewhere there will be spells of sunshine but it cooler and fresher feel with temperatures between 17 and 22.
we are going to take you back to bristol. it is a beautiful scene down there. the ships return back to bristol, 50 year anniversary. it has been closed here as a museum as other places have been for something like four months. two weeks ago we were on that barge which is a bar and that was the 4th ofjuly, the reopening of restau ra nts, ofjuly, the reopening of restaurants, and pubs and museums could have opened at the time, but the ss great britain chose not to do so the ss great britain chose not to do so to make sure it had its procedures in place but today is the day they will open their doors once again, booking only. it is 50 years
to the day tomorrow that there is ship came back, rescued from the falklands. look at what it is now and then what it looked like 50 yea rs and then what it looked like 50 years ago. it was audacious and incredibly ambitious, a plan straight out of the brunel playbook. refloat and repatriate his victorian belt iron hold ocean liner from the falkland islands back to the dock where it was created, an 8,000—mile voyage, the width and the length of the atlantic ocean. lyle craigie—halkett, a falkland islander, remembered playing on the wreck as a boy. the decks were very rotten. she was covered in guano from thousands of sea birds that roosted on there, so, yes, it was a bit dangerous. lyle became a salvage diver and left home but was given the chance to return in 1970 for thejob
of a lifetime. but the challenges were huge. on first look, we were dismayed. or i certainly was. i neverfor a moment thought she was going to look like that. when we dived i thought, gosh, what have we taken on? she was riddled with holes from decay and that sort of depth round the water line. the work was being filmed and photographed by toni morrison and his wife marion. top deck, you really couldn't walk on. i mean, you were in danger. and below that was nothing other than rusty girders a foot wide, and a long drop below into some very dirty looking water in the bottom of the hull, and of course we were carrying all our equipment. and, just as an aside, i happened to be pregnant at the time as well. so, it was all quite challenging, you could say.
a pontoon would be sunk, placed under the hull, and then raised. slowly but surely, the great abandoned ship would float once more. as she come up, you see the great bow of the ship. fantastic. it's amazing how the emotions come back... ..after all those years. the salvage team had beaten the odds and the ship was towed home. entire bristol had turned out. yes, it was really... it was good. actually, quite emotional, really, having watched it being salvaged and leaving and arriving, and all in good repair... yes, that was an amazing experience. having steamed and sailed around the globe for decades, the ss great britain came to rest
in the exact same spot where she was born 127 years before. she had completed herfinal voyage. john maguire, bbc news, bristol. and here she stands. you get an impression, restored obviously, but a real idea of what the two divers we re a real idea of what the two divers were talking about. imagine that bio coming up out of the water in the falklands, an amazing journey, and atop a glass roof which is specially environmentally sealed to ensure the hull does not erode any further. we will take you down there later. it is absolutely fascinating. they will open their gates later today. good morning. you have been closed. give
us an idea of the impact that has had on the museum. foran for an independent visitor attraction like this, that doesn't rely on public subsidy, our income has dropped completely. we are an education charity as well as a visitor attraction and that caused a real challenge to us. what sort of whole are you talking financially? £1 million down already so we are delighted to be opening to the public today, it is a real landmark for us all. the ss great britain holds the title of the most welcoming museum so we are itching to get back. good luck today. usual thing of course, people will be used to it, they will be social distancing, hand sanitiser is everywhere, one—way systems and as regards going down below the hull, we will take you down there later, but people are able to book online to go there. i all right, gary?
introduce you to kim who was here standing on the clifton suspension bridge, brunel‘s are the most iconic creation in 50 years ago.” bridge, brunel‘s are the most iconic creation in 50 years ago. i was ten yea rs creation in 50 years ago. i was ten years old. what do you remember of that day? we got up early, mum got us up early, we didn't know what was going on, really, my brother and i, he was very excited about it because he was very excited about it because he understood more about what was going on. up to the downs and across and gradually we realised there were lots of other people. we came onto the bridge and my mum miraculously managed to get us right into the middle, so the two big parts of the chain, there we were, looking down, looking at people either side of the river, and this hum of expectation. we didn't know what was going to happen, then around the corner there she came. why is it so important, and even today, to reopen it to the
public? oh, she is such a central pa rt public? oh, she is such a central part of shipping history, of bristol's history. she was born in this harbour, a harbour that, you know, essential to the atmosphere of bristol. every time you come and see her, there is something new and wonderful happening. i can't tell you, having always lived in bristol, she has always been there and she gets better and better. and always will be. thank you and lovely to talk to you. there you go. gradually thing is reopening. one of those is the ss great britain, the great survivor, more lives than a cat this ship. open once more today. thanks, john. it is a magnificent side, isn't it? i know that vessel really well. we both used to work in bristol, i used to work for radio bristol. and it is a landmark. absolutely. stay with us, headlines
coming up. hello, this is breakfast with rachel burden and charlie stayt. coming up before 9am, we have the sport and weather. but first a summary of this morning's main news. local authorities in england will be able to use new powers from today to deal with spikes of coronavirus infections in their area. the measures, which allow councils to close down businesses and events, are part of the next stage in the government's strategy to prevent localised outbreaks of the virus, whilst easing restrictions across the country. holidaymakers who were given refund credit notes rather than cash
for their cancelled package holiday are being reassured their money is safe. the authorities have clarified that these refund promises are guaranteed even if the travel company which provided them goes bust. they are distinct from holiday vouchers which do not have the same protection. anyone whose package holiday is cancelled has the right to a full cash refund. the owner of the ask italian and zizzi pizza chains is shutting 75 restaurants with the loss of up to 1,200jobs. the closures are part of a rescue deal for the azzurri group and 225 locations will continue to operate. the company said the coronavirus had hit restaurants hard. those are the main stories this morning. time for us to cross over in mike. mike... it has been a busy morning! all sports fans need reasons to celebrate right now. last night, it
was there night. it was, they've waited so long, they've been through so many bad times through the years, almost going bust after going down in 2004, going bust after going down in 2004, going into administration, points deductions, going to the bottom of league 1, so you can see why it meant so much, the set of players who have written their place in the club's folklore, and i'm surrounded by the remnants of the players little party, there is some champagne, some beer bottles, a pair of shorts, some corks, they had some celebration because they didn't have to play last night but huddersfield down the road were playing west brom and they beat west brom which meant leeds could go up before their match against derby tomorrow. the players celebrated on the pitch, then they went to the window and they were able to see thousands of fans who had gathered outside, even though the police and club, the captain had
made video messages pleading their not come to elland road but they did. there were flares, it was all good—natured did. there were flares, it was all good—natu red and police did. there were flares, it was all good—natured and police said there we re good—natured and police said there were no trouble spots, just like with liverpool, with fireworks and fans. it went on into the night but then the police moved them away. outside pubs fans were celebrating, too. it was quite a night but the players have to get ready against the derby match tomorrow. party will continue across the city. it means so continue across the city. it means so much because they've waited so long. social media went crazy last night. in the centre circle, the chairman, after a ll in the centre circle, the chairman, after all the players had gone, the chairman, who had done so much for this club after taking over in 2017, he sat there for a moment of calm and reflection and he tweeted how much you love the club and wanted to thank the staff that made it all possible. social media went wild with messages of congratulations including
celebrities like liam gallagher who wrote "get your rocks off leeds united". and there were many more including life long fan chris moyles who tweeted... we can now talk to simon rix from the kaiser chiefs who is a leeds fan... good morning and congratulations, how did you enjoy the night, how did you celebrate, how was the night because you are amazing, it was so unexpected! i was saying to you that ididn't unexpected! i was saying to you that i didn't think it could possibly happen. last night i wasn't prepared because things like getting up with two games to spare doesn't happen to leeds. we always leave it to the last minute or just leeds. we always leave it to the last minute orjust miss out so i wasn't prepared at all but i had a couple of beers with a couple of
people. i didn't go to the ground because we are still trying to be sensible but it seemed like everyone was having an amazing time down there. you could play i predict a riot, turn it up loud which is what idid in riot, turn it up loud which is what i did in my hotel room. as for your connection to the city, you know what it means, beyond football, just the whole community and the city. what it means, beyond football, just the whole community and the citym means everything, i think. when we we re means everything, i think. when we were in the premiership last time, i remember the city was vibrant, and i think it'll be different because there is no fans allowed this time so no away there is no fans allowed this time so no away fans, there is no fans allowed this time so no away fans, no there is no fans allowed this time so no away fans, no travelling fans which makes a big difference but i think it will have a massive effect on the community. also one of the things i didn't realise his people i'd been friends with for years, people i didn't know last time we we re people i didn't know last time we were in the premier league, had been texting and stuff and it seems such a long time. it seems like a long time, it seems weird that leads... with been trying so long and it's
finally happened, it's not really sinking in. yes, and of course your band's name reflects the global support leeds united have around the world, and street celebrations taking place in south africa with open top cars, vans with flags waving them in the street. yes, i know lucas has been very active, he has been texting me for a few days, he has been very excited. i texted him the programme, which i have here, which had him on the front and here, which had him on the front and he was very pleased. for the club, you know, as sort of winning it with him on the cover, he is such a legend and leader, i think it was the perfect present to have on that particular cover. simon, enjoy the moment and for those that don't
know, lucas used to play for the kaiser chiefs in south africa, hence the name. thanks very much! let's talk to a leeds united legend, a player who won the league title for the last time they won it in 1992, tony dorigo. thanks forjoining me this morning. we talk to lots of times about leeds united here through all those rough years, those yea rs through all those rough years, those years in turmoil so how did you feel isa years in turmoil so how did you feel is a former play who knows what it is a former play who knows what it is like on the pitch, what was it like for you when it finally sunk in that the waiting was over? to be honest, it still hasn't sunk in, thatis honest, it still hasn't sunk in, that is the problem. i woke up this morning to make sure it wasn't a dream! ithink morning to make sure it wasn't a dream! i think it is so important that finally this club is back to where i think it belongs which is in the premier league. the support we've had over the years has been incredible and rather than keep talking about us winning the title in 91 or 92 or the great european cup run in the early 20005, we would
like some new history and these last 16 years have quite frankly been tortuou5. it's been very difficult, especially what happened last 5ea5on, especially what happened last season, to fall at the final hurdle but to finally get it done is a great feeling and i'm delighted for the executive team, all the players who have committed so much to this 5ea5on, who have committed so much to this season, and finally got the job done. i'm still struggling to work it out. we are going to play manchester united, liverpool, ar5enal, manchester united, liverpool, arsenal, and those are the games eve ryo ne arsenal, and those are the games everyone wants. just like back in your day, tony. how do you compare this current team, then? they've earned their place in leeds united history by getting the club back up. they have and i think what is interesting as marcelo bielsa has come into this club and changed things completely. now we have an identity. two years ago, we were struggling. tho5e identity. two years ago, we were struggling. those same players, a
lot of them, they are still in the same team and he's made them so much better. the like5 same team and he's made them so much better. the likes of liam cooper, calvin phillips, the5e better. the likes of liam cooper, calvin phillips, these are talented player5 calvin phillips, these are talented players but they are on a whole new level so i am delighted for them, they play a wonderful brand of football and i'm excited to see what i5 football and i'm excited to see what is going to happen next season and how they get on but the argentinian quy how they get on but the argentinian guy we have in charge isjust incredible, he's something else. the boys, it has been hard work and he demands a heck of a lot but they have produced. he is a unique human being. when he arrived from argentina two years ago, it was a big coup for leeds but he insisted on not having a big hotel suite, he wa nted on not having a big hotel suite, he wanted to live in a little flat, live a normal life, he lives above a 5weet shop so he can connect with the community and fans. that's right and it isn't normal! but it is a great fit. what we know is that leed5 great fit. what we know is that leeds united and leeds city itself i5 leeds united and leeds city itself is the biggest city, with only one
clu b is the biggest city, with only one club in it and isn't even the premier league. but they live and breathe for their football and marcelo biel5a, he just breathe for their football and marcelo biel5a, heju5t falls in love with the project. if he believes in something, you will see the best of him and we know he has moved around various countries and clu bs moved around various countries and clubs before but i think he has found a home in yorkshire and yorkshire folk love him but you can see him wandering around wetherby, he pops into the local coffee shop, fa ns he pops into the local coffee shop, fans go up to him, he does it on a daily basis but what he does is give everything to the cause. he is meticulous in his preparation and the way he gets the team ready and he has been rewarded and we are delighted we have had him these two yea rs delighted we have had him these two years and long may it continue. tony, thanks very much indeed and i hope it sinks in at some point this weekend! and you can enjoy the moment and relax. marcelo bielsa, title winning defender from 1992. moment and relax. marcelo bielsa, title winning defenderfrom1992. i ama title winning defenderfrom1992. i am a leeds fan myself and it does funny things to you, supporting
leeds, as tony said. it has been horrendous over the last 16 years, some of the things in embarrassing times and you become so superstitious, you can't believe it's going to happen again. last night i went for a run, i couldn't bear to watch huddersfield and west brom. huddersfield scored, i had to keep running, i ran 14 k in the end! before that, i was having kittens because my wife is texting me to say the dogs had bitten the arm off my leeds united name! i thought promotion would be off! it's all blown! but now he can have a whole nose for himself and eat it all, i think. all the worry and tension has gone. mike, i've been listening to everything you are saying but i've become increasingly interested, just over your right shoulder, there is one of the cutouts of a labrador. in the crowd. is it a labrador i can see, three up over there? there we are, there, can you see him? oh it isa are, there, can you see him? oh it is a golden retriever, i like that.
in all i've seen about ten dogs here in the crowd because you can buy a seat here. i haven't found myself here yet. it was one way of helping the club, in the times when there are no fans coming in. i'll try to find any other animals that are here but there are a lot of dogs. thanks very much. i love that! so, as we've been hearing, there's plenty of football news to talk about this morning. football focus is on bbc one at 12pm and dan will be hosting. he's here with us now. morning, dan. good morning, everybody. great interview from mike. he has been through the wringer as many leeds united fans have been. i'll give you an idea of how little sleep he had. i saw an idea of how little sleep he had. isaw him an idea of how little sleep he had. i saw him in manchester at 11pm, and here he is in leeds! well done, mike, and leeds united who are going to be in the premier league next season. we will reflect on that and we will talk and show the best of the games from a huge win for west
ham over watford last night, watford just outside the bottom three at the moment. in a pretty perilous position. we will look at the premier league but it isn'tjust about league football, it is also the fa cup semi final say on bbc one tomorrow from 5:30pm watch manchester united against chelsea, two tea ms manchester united against chelsea, two teams vying for fourth place in the premier league but also are going toe to toe in the fa cup. a little appreciation of what bruno fernandes is brought to manchester united today. and the other semifinal is arsenal against manchester city. for those of you who don't really know where the managers have come from with regards to this, pep guardiola used to have mikel arteta as his number two in manchester city. mikel arteta got thejob at arsenal so manchester city. mikel arteta got the job at arsenal so it is sorcerers apprentice against the sorcerer. sorcerers apprentice against the sorcerer. we've spoken to phil foden this week, the young manchester city midfielder who many feel might step into the significant slippers of
david silva who is leaving manchester city at the end of the season, who has been so brilliant for them and the premier league, and phil has been talking about what it feels like to play in midfield with david silva and kevin de bruyne. having him and david in midfield is a perfect balance. kevin tries long passes and fly things through and that was he is great at, crossing on things. david is more technical with shorter passes. just to see both of them on the same field is unbelievable and even better playing with them recently. kevin is unbelievable out there. he just sees a pass before it is there, i don't understand how he does it.” a pass before it is there, i don't understand how he does it. i don't think he is the only one! phil foden speaking to kyle walker. real madrid win la liga in our pod cast, so see what's going on around all the leagues in europe. young funds at
dumbarton fc, brilliant bit of telly. so many issues to clear up in the league, so many teams could go up the league, so many teams could go up and go down so much clements joins us now to go through some of that and pick out the pertinent points we need to pay attention to. we will do all that and much more with alex scott and mark lawrenson from midday today on football focus. see then. i have a question, is it a front to sip a i can tell you what theissue front to sip a i can tell you what the issue is, it a wet suit but i haven't got a shirt today. if you haven't got a shirt today. if you have a shirt, a spare shirt, i need one for football focus. i've got a spare one for football focus. i've got a spa re wet one for football focus. i've got a spare wet suit here which i always keep handy just in spare wet suit here which i always keep handyjust in case. i'll show you underneath... there is a very not ironed t—shirt. so, everybody. i can confirm it is waterproof but it isn't a wet suit. now you know, rachel. you were looking mystified.
what do you think? i think probably you are a secret spy underneath all this, charlie, that is my theory. we will go to the weather now. is it wet suit weather? charlie goes diving into the docks you can see behind you there while i'm on doing the weather for you can see behind you there while i'm on doing the weatherfor an enlivening swim. that's the best i can do! good morning, a bit ofa mix of weather across the uk today, not a bad start at all in northern ireland with some blue skies overhead but a very different story here for this weather watcher in cheshire. cloudy skies and outbreaks of rain, this is how things are panning out, with a band of cloud and outbreaks of rain running along it to the north and south something bright about quite a lot of low cloud at the moment rolling in
across the south—west of england. three slices of weather today. the first across northern areas of scotla nd first across northern areas of scotland and northern ireland. here, some blue skies overhead, some sunshine at show‘s as well pushing into the north and west. quite wind in northern scotland. he is the band of wind and rain with a slow—moving weather front affecting the midlands down into wales and the south—east of that, the warmest of the weather during today. going through today, the different pieces of the weather jigsaw puzzle don't move around very quickly. ourfrontal jigsaw puzzle don't move around very quickly. our frontal system just edging its way painstakingly slowly southwards, some brighter skies developing down to the south, warmth here as well. northern ireland and the far north of england, brightening up and for scotland. a cooler, fresher fuel. brightening up and for scotland. a cooler, fresherfuel. london getting up cooler, fresherfuel. london getting up to 26—27 but it isn't a great outlook for the cricket at old trafford today. there will be rain
coming and going, not raining all the time and signs are it could dry out a little bit as we head through the late afternoon and into the evening, as this band of cloud sta rts evening, as this band of cloud starts to pull away southwards and tonight we are expecting a pulse of heavier rain to push along the weather front across parts of england, into south—east wales as well. further north and west clearer skies, one or two showers and a cooler, fresher field. skies, one or two showers and a cooler, fresherfield. tomorrow, our weather front will still be sitting around across parts of east anglia, central and southern parts of england, perhaps south wales for a time so cloud and sunspots of rain for a good part of the day. further north and west, sunshine and showers into northern and western scotland but a cooler, fresher feel into northern and western scotland but a cooler, fresherfeel for all, 16-22d in but a cooler, fresherfeel for all, 16—22d in cardiff. further ahead, our weather front will finally get a move on and clear away as we head into monday with high pressure building in so that should mean a
largely dry start to the new working week. staying fine on dry in the south, warmer, too and some rain in the north at times. back to you. it's been eight years since the iconic super saturday which took place at the 2012 olympics, and saw team gb pick up three gold medals within 50 minutes. i was there and it was one of the most incredible days of my life and i'll neverforget most incredible days of my life and i'll never forget it. it was a privilege to be there but it was... when you think back to that time compared to where we are as a country in so many ways, it seems like this brief, golden glimpse of harmony and pure joy, like this brief, golden glimpse of harmony and purejoy, it like this brief, golden glimpse of harmony and pure joy, it was wonderful. and amazing athletic performance, of course! one of stars of the day was dame jessica ennis—hill, who joins us now from sheffield. how are you? i'm good, really good,
thank you. do you want to go with racher thank you. do you want to go with rachel's thought... itjust feels like rachel encapsulated their what a special moment that was. do you have a similar thought process, where you think that was a day? firstly, i can't believe it is nearly eight years on, it is still so nearly eight years on, it is still so fresh and at the forefront of my mind. it was an incredible day, it was two days that i dreamt about for so was two days that i dreamt about for so many years, having two days of competition where everything falls into place and it accumulates in a gold medal at the end. it was just surreal, surreal more than anything. and a moment the nation will never forget and i definitely won't forget, either. here you are, the 800 metres, at what point, is at this point herejust 800 metres, at what point, is at this point here just as you take the lead, is that when you think now i can relax and enjoy this and try to
ta ke can relax and enjoy this and try to take it all in? honestly, untili crossed the line, i couldn't even breathe a sigh of relief. i was so tense and nervous and excited, i a lwa ys tense and nervous and excited, i always knew i had a strong finish at the 800, about 150 to go, i knew i had a good kick in me but it wasn't until i crossed the line and had that pure joy and relief of knowing that pure joy and relief of knowing that i'd actually got through it, i hadn't picked up any injuries, hadn't picked up any injuries, hadn't fallen over, and that gold was mine. i don't know if people remember the pressure on you, you are the poster girl of the olympics, eve ryo ne are the poster girl of the olympics, everyone was saying this was nailed on, this gold, and dealing with that expectation... how do you do it?” don't really know how i did it looking back. ithink don't really know how i did it looking back. i think it was a combination of having a great team around me, great family supporting me, keeping me focused and positive on what i was going out to achieve.
i think it was a unique situation which i did thrive on. i loved having that adrenaline of everyone expecting the highest accolade from you and it was a lot of pressure and it was a lot of expectation but it was unique and incredible, in every way. the bbc is rerunning some of the finest moments from the games this weekend which is why we are talking about it apart from anything else. what i want to know, you've talked about what an amazing day it was but is there some trivia you've never told anyone yet about something that happened behind—the—scenes? a conversation or a moment in time, something that happened? i can only imagine, you are saying about how you felt going into that day, i'm always fascinated by changing situations, when you are in there with your and you're all competing against each other, someone says competing against each other, someone says something, a little look, may be, from someone? there are so many moments
look, may be, from someone? there are so many moments like that. it is are so many moments like that. it is a bit ofa are so many moments like that. it is a bit of a blur but i think the fans are in the stadium and the amazing electric environment of what is about to happen but it is pretty mundane and normal behind—the—scenes, everyone is nervous and unsure of what to expect. there is lots of random conversations. not one that sticks out to me that would excite everyone, i think... you are keeping tight—lipped, which i understand. alongside your performance was mo farah and greg rutherford. did you get a sense in the square there was a special thing going on? it is an individual sport, you have to do it yourself but were you feeding off each other? yes, i think we were a big team and until you get into the village and the environment, you are ina village and the environment, you are in a bubble. as soon as we were there, the medals started rolling in. i knew he was competing that day and expected to win medals but when
you are competing, you are so into your event and what you're trying to achieve that you forget what is going on around you and it wasn't until i crossed the line and i knew that i won that i heard greg had won a medal and i was that i won that i heard greg had won a medaland i was in that i won that i heard greg had won a medal and i was in the media zone, then i saw mo farah win a medal on then i saw mo farah win a medal on the screen. it was bizarre and surreal to know that, firstly, we we re surreal to know that, firstly, we were pa rt of surreal to know that, firstly, we were part of that legendary night and really unexpected more than anything but a fantastic occasion. it was the 10,000 metres for mo farah, following it with the 5000 metres. extraordinary moments in these olympic games. you look at the legacy of it as well, do you think we managed to capitalise on that as a country, as much as we could have done? i think it has been difficult, we've had lots of challenges that we face but when i look at it from a personal perspective and i see the impact it has had on the local
children in sheffield coming down to the institute of sport and be inspired by notjust athletics but also cycling, rowing, everything that we performed during that olympics and the role models we created, i see an instant impact on those individuals and it is whether that continues to go forward into the future and i really hope it does. we often ask people when we are talking about them, people what your performances, people get a buzz out of those performances and may be people need something special at the moment. we need things to hold onto. how has lockdown been for you and what is your go to think of anything that keeps you happy these times? i've been seeing lots of your pictures on instagram with the kids and getting out and about, so clearly a bit more time with the family is welcome, is it? it has been a real mix. we've had those incredible family moments we probably wouldn't have had in any other situations are having family
brea kfast, other situations are having family breakfast, not rushing out to our day—to—day life has been very special, we had some great quality time but also we have had lots of craziness in between so home—schooling like everyone has been doing, trying to keep two young kids entertained every day with limited places to go. so it has been a strange time for everyone, i think. one last question, we are going to be chatting to captain sir tom moore, and talk about athletic achievements! his achievement, amazing! literally in itself what it was but also what are represented. absolutely incredible, me and the kids were watching some of the footage of him receiving the award from the queen and it blows your mind, it is incredible what he has achieved and what a fantastic man and for him to be honoured in that way is brilliant to see. we will never forget his achievements, he has created a legacy by himself. so absolutely inspiring. thank you so
