8:05 pm
a tough few weeks ahead here and around scotland as hospital a raft of new coronavirus measures is coming into force admissions continued to rise and people wait to hear whether across the uk, in england, restrictions will tighten. greater manchester has entered tier 3, which has the toughest restrictions — and four council areas in south yorkshire will join them at midnight. an 83 year old woman from west yorkshire hit the headlines after comments in scotland, a new five tier system she made on look north of restrictions has been this week went viral. announced for november. maureen eames was out shopping meanwhile in wales, the first full national lockdown in barnsley when she told bbc since march is beginning. look north she wouldn't be locked up from there, hywel griffith reports. in her home because of cornavirus. lets take a look at the clip. a short, sharp shutdown. wales now has the most severe restrictions anywhere in the uk. i think it's all ridiculous. we some feel already should never have been in lockdown. pushed to their limit. all the people who are vulnerable should have been helped and kept louise has spent thousands of pounds safe. and all the rest of us, i'm making her gym safe, 83. but like all cafes, bars, i don't give a sod. pubs and places of worship in wales, i look at it this way — she too has to close the doors. i've not got all that many years left in me and i'm not going to be it's just totally devastating, fastened in a house if i'm perfectly honest with you. when the government you know, waking up this morning, have got it all wrong. we need it... how come we get the it was really difficult not to have a wobble. country on its feet moneywise? where
8:06 pm
is all the money? there's could be the fire break covers millions of people and you know the school holidays. for parents like bethan, staying at home makes who's going to pay for it? all the for a tough half term. it really is difficult, just trying young ones. not me because i'm going to get them out for short, to be dead. sharp bits of exercise, local leaders are concerned that maureen's comments you know, that social aspect could encourage people to flout the rules. that they are missing as well local reporter amy garcia, going to their sports club. here in caerphilly, there was a last—minute shopping rush before six o'clock. has been to meet maureen. nonessential retailers are closing, supermarkets stay open maureen, your appearance on look for essential items only. north has created quite a stir. it's not clear what they are. what do you make of the attention you're getting? i was surprised, but pleased that i'm saying what other people i'm not sure on things are thinking but daren't say. like books or newspapers. clothing, we are not going to be medical professionals are advising the government and they're saying allowed to buy, anything like that, we need to take these measures to keep us safe, to keep footwear and all that, vulnerable people safe, i think, is on the forbidden list. to keep you safe, maureen. who deems what is essential? thing is, we can all keep safe, and businesses need us there, i suppose it's a little unsure. they need me to go shopping, they need me to go to the restaurants, they need me i'm thinking small items might be to go to the coffee bars, they need me to go into the market. fine but large items may be not. all these people need me, and they need everyone else. asda has already been you're a parish councillor. closing off some aisles. are you not worried by speaking out you're encouraging it says it is deeply concerned people to flout the rules? about having to police purchases. no, they're not going there is a bigger prize at stake to flout the rules.
8:07 pm
here than whether you need there just to stay safe and get out. to buy a candle or not, which is a straightforward we are losing the great out matter of fairness. of britain and we need we are in this together the great of britain. here in wales. we need people with grit to get back no individual and no organisation is above the effort that we are all required to make. on their hind legs and get out. checkpoints were set up and that means the whole nation, on the welsh borders by gloucestershire's police force regardless of local covid rates. earlier today as wales begins a two week lockdown. here in ceredigion, gloucestershire constabulary says it they have the lowest in wales, just would stop people travelling a fraction of those in caerphilly. into wales and encourage them to turn around if officers don't haney isn't happy that this believe theirjourney is essential. national lockdown means shutting down her salon. but what impact will these changes have on businesses on the border? to compare us to cardiff here's robin markwell. or merthyr tydfil is ridiculous, i think. the muddy waters of the wye. england are doing like the tiered lockdown, this river marks the border which makes more sense to me. between two proud nations, nations now pulling in different directions over the virus. but others feel it in gloucestershire, england, will protect them. sandra would be prepared to close it is on the lowest level. her book shop for even longer. it's not the greatest thing to say as a business owner, businesses open. but in wales, a new lockdown dubbed but i think we probably need a longer, more meaningful lockdown. the firebreaker has just begun. i think the localised measures aren't working. for people who live around you know, we can see here it is all getting a touch, well, confusing. people crossing borders. i live in england, own
8:08 pm
who can open once this fire break a business in wales, ends still isn't clear. children go to school in wales, so. the hope is to save trade what do we do? ahead of christmas. it isjust a nightmare, it's already feared you just don't know whether you're that the new year may see allowed to go to tesco's in wales wales closing down again. hywel griffith, bbc or whether we have to go to lydney news, caerphilly. martin mckee is professor ten miles down the road. friends have had tickets to the zoo of european public health cancelled because we got an np postcode living in gloucestershire. at the london school of tropical medicine. in chepstow, in wales, hejoins me now for more. it means that in order to stay at home pubs like the three tunns even with an outdoor gazebo welcome professor x very much for will close for a fortnight. being with us on bbc news was of it is difficult because obviously what you make of the picture across withjoe working in bristol europe right now is it what you it is kind of like we are trying would've expected? it's certainly to follow two different sets of rules. not what i would hope for. it's it feels it is daft there is one way for wales and one way for the rest. dreamily alarming and we really shouldn't be in this position by business in the west side were understanding. this restaurant hopes that a short, 110w. shouldn't be in this position by sharp shock might ensure now. obviously when the pandemic had at first nobody knew what to do and they're open for christmas. we needed to have very severe we don't want christmas cancelled, lockdown. but we have had a lot of we understand that way have got time to put things in place to to be shut down for two weeks. prevent this happening. u nfortu nately, we prevent this happening. unfortunately, we haven't done that. such as what? well, we should have the talk in hairdressers used to be where you are going on your holidays. had really well—functioning test not any more. in wales you can't go and see your
8:09 pm
trace and isolate in all countries. children in oxfordshire. a number of countries do have that and moved quickly. but also i think even though you live on your own, you have your bubble. it's quite clear that some have opened up too quickly. and i think you have to choose between your family. what we are seeing now is the this is the english consequences of a well—known side of the border. phenomenon in europe and that is the paula smith who cuts here in the village of tutshill august summer holiday. where people faces losing half our customers over we re august summer holiday. where people were mixing and a way that in the next fortnight if stay home. retrospect, for some people as was do you think the circuit breaker is the right way forward? predicted, has allowed the virus to i am a tier person, i think it is much better. spread widely across many but not i think give that a try because that all parts of europe. there are for still enables people to stay in their towns or their cities and go to work and example, germany a really good test entry system. again, they are seeing support each other. numbers going up as well. that's right. if we look at what happen. by the end of august we were beginning above all, we found weariness to see cases rise among young people on both sides of the border as this pandemic goes on and on. of course they were at the group bbc points west at the that were travelling and were england—wales border. socialising, going to hospitality venues particularly in the mediterranean. they brought it back. peter and linda wilkins from stockport were married for 47 years. it's taken some time for it to physical contact was hugely filter into the older population important for both of them as neither of them could see. which is what we are seeing now. the but — when linda went growth of the infection has been into a care home three
8:10 pm
months ago — that stopped. much lower than in the first phase. she died suddenly two days ago — largely because people have now big without peter being able to say goodbye. now he's calling on the government come accustomed to social distancing. even in the absence of to allow close relatives to visit — restrictions they are being much to stop others suffering his pain. abbiejones reports. more careful. but it is working its way through and we are now seeing it getting into the older populations this is linda. those who knew her with the rise in hospitalizations. would know that she was very calm, tragically with the rise in deaths. there are a lot of individual very gentle, and did no harm to circumstances in particular anyone. i loved her very much, and countries. some countries did open she meant the whole world to me. up countries. some countries did open up precipitously the chest republic anyone. i loved her very much, and she meant the whole world to mem i example where they had a goodbye the doorway of the home they shared for 43 years, peter says he has lost without his wife. although i was to coronavirus party. parts of the able to visit linda for the kindness united kingdom where the virus transmission was never fully of the nursing home on our wedding suppressed. and of course, countries anniversary, what was missing was the physical contact. she asked me have been affected by the pattern of ifi movement during the summer where the physical contact. she asked me if i could give her a kiss and i people went on holidays and so on. saidi if i could give her a kiss and i said i did not thinki if i could give her a kiss and i said i did not think i was allowed which is protected some more than to. that was in august. since then others. how do you see the death rates comparing in different peter was not able to visit. linda countries in comparison to their number of cases? is it lower than died unexpectedly two days ago. with the peak of the pandemic was not yes it is. what we are seeing is first
8:11 pm
covid infection rates rising rapidly ca re covid infection rates rising rapidly care homes once again have had to of all, older people everywhere are tighten their rules. and tier 3 areas like this visits are allowed protecting themselves much more. we learned much more about how to only in exceptional circumstances protect people and care homes which we did not do well almost anywhere like end—of—life. but linda died to suddenly for bieber to be able to be in the first way. but the other really important thing is that once prepared to say goodbye. he says the government must rethink to spare if people do become infected or others his pain. my question to you, severely ill the unk comes in the hospitals have improved quite cancelled and be done to stop people substantially. part of this is new having to go through what i'm going drugs like dexamethasone and older through... peter rang into bbc radio drugs like dexamethasone and older drugs being used. a lot of it is manchester the day after she died, people are simply coming, how visibly moving conveyor andy professionals a re people are simply coming, how professionals are becoming much more experience on what to do and when to burnham. my goodness. what would you start people on oxygen and ventilate say to the government now? consider them. to the importance of given what it's doing to people and to arrange some system whereby safe them. to the importance of given them blood thinning agents when needed. there's been a great deal of visiting can be done. it's almost knowledge even in the absence of the absence of any therapeutic breakthrough. thank you. criminal to take this away from us. thank you. the uk and japan have formally signed a trade agreement, sudan has become the third arab country in two months marking britain's first big post—brexit deal. to recognise israel. the deal,
8:12 pm
it follows talks brokered described as "groundbreaking" by the uk's international trade by the united states. secretary liz truss, president trump could not resist means nearly all exports to japan will be tariff free, taking a dig at his presidential while removing british tariffs rivaljoe biden as he made on japanese cars by 2026. the announcement from the oval office, while on the line to israel's leader but critics point out it will boost benjamin nethanyahu. do you think sleepyjoe the uk economy byjust 0.07%, a fraction of the trade that could've made this deal? maybe? could be lost with the eu. sleepyjoe. do you think he would've made this deal somehow? the bbc‘s tokyo correspondent, rupert wingfield—hayes asked i don't liz truss what impact brexit think so. mr president, one thing could have on the trade deal — in particular in relation i can tell you is that we appreciate that for peace to car manufacturing: from anyone in america and we appreciate what you have done. yeah. japan isa japan is a fantastic investor in the nomia iqbal is washington. shejoins me now. uk, and this deal has been welcomed by major investors like hitachi and a diplomatic response shall we say nissan. and of course businesses wa nt nissan. and of course businesses want us to get a good deal with the from benjamin netanyahu. how significant is this announcement? ebukam of the also want us to go contrary relationships with the rest vveerryy. this is the third arab of the world. that is what we are working on. ijust wonder, these are league country to recognise israel realjobs you're talking about. like joining the united arab. and bahrain. early in the week donald trump is actually moves to don from in derby and sunderland. that could

potentially disappear from the uk. a list of terrorism. it was a list that sudan really wanted to come off if we have free movement of cars because it'd been stopping it from coming from japan under the deal that you signed, and we do not have getting much needed economic aid and investment. sudan has been in free movement of parts or people between the uk and the eu with those internationalization for quite a while. it was sanctioned back in the jobs are injeopardy. 90s by the us for harbouring the between the uk and the eu with those jobs are in jeopardy. we do want a good deal with the eu, but we need then al-qaeda leading leader osama to make sure that it's on the terms bin laden. this deal today has been in the making for quite a bit. of the uk being a sovereign nation. earlier in the year sudan head opens the way the uk is going to be up successful in the future and why we earlier in the year sudan head opens up its airspace to israeli aircraft. area successful in the future and why we the secretary of state had visited are a successful country at the moment as we have great people with cartoon a few months ago making the great skills, we have a great tax first secretary of state to do so in a decade. i think any country that regime, we have good trade policies. all of those things are important for our future developments. i has not recognise israel previously all of those things are important for ourfuture developments. i don't not recognising israel is a huge think you can just isolate one factor when you are looking at it. moment. what does it mean in the context of middle east peace? the reason for japanese factor when you are looking at it. the reason forjapanese car companies want to be based in the uk moment. what does it mean in the context of middle east peace ?m doesn't mean a huge amount in direct is because of the skills and talents terms. of course sudan is not in the of our people. the way that we middle east. history sums times goes operate in the uk. we have done in small tech steps. what it does is todayis pay the way for other arab countries operate in the uk. we have done today is confirmed and deepened our trading relationship with japan.
8:14 pm

8:16 pm
covid—19 crisis. italy has seen a record number of coronavirus the latest news have been very infections in a single day, as cases increase across europe. difficult to accept, that we are all going to have six president trump has announced that sudan will normalise diplomatic months of quite severe restrictions, relations with israel — but every time we have a broadcast the third arab state to do so in two months. the bbc line—up a series of people to criticise and condemn everything that this government or the there was far less shouting and far more policy, the second and final presidential debate in nashville last night was a far cry from the chaotic shouting match last month. with just twelve days to go before november's election, joe biden and donald trump argued about the white house's handling of the pandemic, the economy, healthcare, race relations and climate change. they also accused each other of corruption. from nashville our north america editor, jon sopel reports. joe biden emerged onto the stage masked. the president maskless. this was identical to the first food fight of a debate, but this was altogether more restrained, and all the better for it.
8:17 pm
yes, the shouting had been replaced by a series of emoji faces, eye rolling, mock indignation, derisive laughter, but the exchanges were still sharp. the president claimed coronavirus was turning a corner. we have a vaccine coming, it's ready, it's going to be announced within weeks. we are learning to live with it. we have no choice, we can't lock ourselves up in a basement likejoe does. he says we are learning to live with it. people are learning to die with it. the president went after the biden family and the son of the former vice president, hunter, and the money he made abroad. you got $3.5 million, your family got $3.5 million. and some day you will have to explain what you got it. i never got any money from russia. butjoe biden wasn't going to take lectures from the president about transparency. you have not released a single solitary year of your tax return. what are you hiding? there were exchanges over the controversial child separation policy at the mexican border.
8:18 pm
there are 500 children who have become orphans because the us authorities don't know where the parents are. the president defended what they had done. they are so well taken care of, they are in facilities that were so clean. but some of them haven't been reunited. they got separated from their parents, and it makes us a laughing stock and violates every notion of who we are as a nation. joe biden sought to portray himself as the healer and unifier, donald trump as the outsider who would fix america's broken politics. i went to a bar in nashville where trump supporters had gathered. most striking was how empty it was. three weeks ago for the first debate it was rammed with a few hundred people there. last night, there were around a dozen. will this final debate make a difference to the outcome of the election? i think most americans are already decided. it may change a few people's minds, but statistically, it just change that many.
8:19 pm
still pretty much undecided. i think i am just disappointed about the candidates. donald trump was more disciplined and effective in the debate last night, but is it too little, too late, with only 11 days to go until polling? and already in the united states, it seems that probably over a third of the electorate have already cast their ballots. let's get some of the day's other news. pentagon condemns turkish missile system test, threatens ‘serious consequences' turkeys president can firm the test but said he was not bound by what the us concerned on the matter. police in poland have used pepper spray on hundreds of people protesting in warsaw against a court ruling to almost completely ban abortions. on thursday, the constitutional
8:20 pm
court ruled that ending the life of a deformed foetus was unconstitutional making abortion only valid in cases of rape or incest, or to protect the mother's life. the us secretary of state, mike pompeo, is holding separate talks in washington with the foreign ministers of azerbaijan and armenia, in an attempt to stop nearly a month of fighting over the nagorno—karabakh region. it marks the first high—level diplomatic effort by the united states to try to bring about a ceasefire there. in namibia more than seven—thousand dead seals have washed ashore in the past few days. most of them are pups which have been born prematurely. conservationists say one of the most likely cause is a lack of food as female seals have been known to abort their babies when they are malnourished. nigeria's president muhammadu buhari has said at least 69 people have been killed during days of protests against police brutality.
8:21 pm
the deaths were mainly civilians but include police officers and soldiers. a curfew in the country's commercial hub — lagos — will be eased from saturday but as our west africa correspondent reports, tensions remain. the day after the presidents television addressed that very few people here and the lack of tollgate in the shootings. many nigerians have been frightened by the scenes of violence they've seen in the last few days the president has also said that any future demonstrations will not be tolerated. but many people here unsatisfied with how it all turned out. it's a government that does not care. we see it was up we have a government that does not care for the life of the people. it's just for their own selfish pockets. before we knew for that we started on people saying they hear, they hurt their only way we knew they we re hurt their only way we knew they were here it was gunshots. lucky here is the most useful protest in
8:22 pm
nigeria. these are the most peaceful protest in nigeria. it's unclear what the future holds for the movement. the protests main architects to stay home and say they will no longer be accepting donations. some demands have been met but many are still dissatisfied was at one thing is clear, it's been a political weakening among nigeria's young people. there's already talk about how to organise themselves and head of the next elections. something has started here at that won't be easily extinguished. dozens of cafes, pubs and restaurants — as well as several councils — have stepped in to offer free school meals for children in england during half term, after the government refused to fund them. the footballer marcus rashford, who has campaigned on the issue, says he will continue to press the government to change its mind and offer free meals during school holidays. here's our education correspondent elaine dunkley in towns, villages and cities
8:23 pm
