rates higher than during the first wave of the pandemic in the spring. in france, the government has imposed an overnight curfew on two—thirds of the country which will operate for the next six weeks. in the uk, a national lockdown has hit 3 million people in wales in an effort to reduce coronavirus. the country is under full restrictions now, for the next 16 days. us president donald trump has announced that sudan will normalize diplomatic relations with israel — the third arab state to do so in two months. mr trump also said he expected saudi arabia to follow soon. more than seven thousand dead seals have been washed ashore on the coast of namibia. most are premature pups. conservationists say it's likely the mothers are not getting enough to eat, which can cause them to give birth early.
11:31 pm
hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are the columnist for the article, ali miraj and the uk correspondent for france 2a, benedicte paviot. tomorrow's front pages, starting with. the ‘i' says millions of meals for disadvantaged kids in england have been donated — after a huge network of volunteers from cafes, pubs, restaurants and councils has intervened to tackle child food poverty. the daily mirror carries a story about the same campaign — which has been led and inspired by manchester united striker — marcus rashford. and the guardian reflects that scores of councils in england have pledged to feed disadvantaged children over the school holidays — as theyjoined a wave of public support for the campaign. the daily mail reports that following todays strict lockdown in wales — police on the border with england are preparing extra patrols to catch half—term holidaymakers making journeys notjudged essential.
11:32 pm
meanwhile the yorkshire post carries the north of england's three most seniorbishops‘ warning — that borisjohnson‘s approach to covid—i9 in the north risks causing a generation of "disillusion and unrest" amongst younger people and "dividing the nation". the financial times says banks are raising their mortgage interest rates — in an effort to stem runaway demand for home loans, as they struggle to cope with a buoyant post—lockdown housing market. while the daily express offers a note of optimism from leading uk bacteriologist — professor hugh pennington — who says coronavirus can be banished — with a combination of vaccines, better testing and contact tracing. and — according to the times — britain has launched its own series of covert attacks on president putin and his senior allies. so, let's begin. starting with that story.
11:33 pm
targeting vladimir putin allies. a former cabinet secretary who seems to have been let loose now that he is not under any restrictions and what do you make of this story? because after the poisoning, even though britain expelled some of the russian diplomats, britons seem to be on the back foot. is that the government or previous government senior service? there being as open as they can be about breaching state secrets. saying that the uk is retaliating against russia, which is operating with what he defines as grace space which is the space between almost every relations in open warfare, whether all sorts of cyber attacks going on in various other things that the russian government is doing in the uk government is actually taking its own counter cyber measures to tackle this and the focus of this is vladimir putin's allies. a lot of russian money finding its way to the
11:34 pm
property market in areas as well and i have had the poisoning of serge screwball which resulted in the —— skripal. it is the government trying to push back where they can to ensure that cybersecurity is maintained and they hold the russians to account where they can. revealing the threat that he sees russia to be at this point. because we've had public announcements but this is clearly the first time that we learned about these covert attacks in the cyber world by the united kingdom and of course, not just the cabinet secretary, the former national security adviser and it's very much in this capacity that
11:35 pm
he is talking about this and in fa ct, he is talking about this and in fact, going directly with times newspapers that have got this interview and i think that we decide the debate this morning that i and many of the people watching and may have seen later, he also refers to donald trump hospitals presidency thatis donald trump hospitals presidency that is created some ups and downs of the numberten that is created some ups and downs of the number ten in dealing with the us can be, like waltzing with a brontosaurus. i do not think president donald trump will be too happy with that description. also, some tory hawk's and not happy with any kind of dealings with china and it is important not to be naive and needs of a business relationship with china and i think it is interesting that there is no doubt that there is a particular
11:36 pm
revelation about actions with russia andl revelation about actions with russia and i think the timing is also interesting because we are to weeks away from the united kingdom ending the transitional period with the eu and it is also the uk on the world stage making a statement even if that wasn't meant to possibly come out now. that is of a look at the daily mail. this is after manchester united launches campaigns and very much on social media to ask people to help feed children who wa nt to people to help feed children who want to get those free school meals and the holidays and says a nation shames tory mps and it does seem that tory mps are really out of step with how the nation feels about this. indeed and it is the case of other not the prime minister is
11:37 pm
going to scrooge at christmas time and reminds me of 1971 where one margaret thatcher was the education secretary in the government. and had to deal with the talk of being thatcher milk snatcher from the premiership that is the danger that the prime ministerfaces in the grand scheme of things, were talking about kids on free school meals and the severity serious issue in the former homelessness are, talking about destitution in the present environment and i do think that the government is in danger of getting the objects of this completely wrong. it did you turn on the same issue and other issues and i do feel like there's a part sure climb down, potentially in the offering and they seem to have dug their heels on this and it looks very bad. are they going to be forced into a u—turn?
11:38 pm
yes. they might try in a different way and i think they're going to come onto the guardian, that talks about this and also in the same way over the summer, but it will be through activity clubs and so, in a sense, a different approach and they've really got this right, and feeding the kids. and banning nonessential goods. being able to even your child oran goods. being able to even your child or an adult should not become a political issue and i agree that this is a very bad look and the first two words, cash strapped, cafes and restaurants. not cafes and restaurants that are rolling in money, we know they are not. the
11:39 pm
incredibly damage for the covid—19 pandemic and there they are helping children who absolutely need desperately to eat. this is a bad situation that needs to be addressed very quickly. the guardian mentioned stepping in to feed children it's anger grows in such as labour, as the conservative run council that is offering this. he tory mp this week. are the government going to lose a serious amount of votes over the some the next election or are they baking on the fact that they are too far away to count? so, there is a long way to go, but right now the only thing that the government is going to bejudged on is their handling of coronavirus, much like how the prime minister wants to go on about investment and other things. the key issue is that the
11:40 pm
fa ct things. the key issue is that the fact that people are facing a dire financial economic situation and people are losing theirjobs come over look at1 million increase in unemployment by the end of the year we're looking at massive national debt and people are losing their jobs and they are struggling. in the middle of all this, we have a situation where certain kids are not going to be able to be fed properly over christmas and other people are stepping in. the suspected david chairman's pic society. this is the big society in action. people are suffering themselves putting up the hand of friendship and care to help others less fortunate than themselves and i do think that the government needs to have another think about this when it is already ina week think about this when it is already in a week wherever tissue neck at the this is an issue that needs to be revisited quickly. this is in england, scotland and wales are not
11:41 pm
doing that. you have this division that looks really bad. i really needs to be addressed in the next 24 to 48 hours. they are sitting there helping those in need, having that, but watching this space, we may well see some development and another story there and we can see that after sta m p story there and we can see that after stamp duty was cut, it is led toa after stamp duty was cut, it is led to a rise in people buying properties and while that offer of tax to be sitting up to £15,000 still holds, begs and i worried about it and there seeing too many people borrowing. bring us up to date on this one? this is a situation where there's really been a v—shaped recovery in the housing market because of the way this was cut and some people within the banking sector. this is the busiest it's been since just before the 2008 financial crisis and
11:42 pm
a good thing in a way that there's so much activity and people are moving and wanting to move even in the midst of a pandemic. that is a positive thing for the economy but the challenge for this and mortgage providers, they cannotjust cope with demand. a lot of working from home and we see that the bank is putting a hold on its new applications this week and they're looking increasingly interest rates with this and it's very low and we are looking at increasing and dampening down demand to be able to cope with the body. is counterintuitive. the needs as much as they can get. it does but we find out that gardening is what people have been buying and that is been doing well is opposed to other things. but what you look at halifax and the yorkshire building
11:43 pm
societies. just a few among them to have raised their rates in the past three weeks, it is counterintuitive indeed. 0n the front page, this is about the trade deal that we saw between the uk andjapan trade deal that we saw between the uk and japan in the city is morning, what about us when it comes to the brexit deal that still has not been agreed and now running out of time and saying that everyone is focusing on fishing, but about financial services, the lifeblood of the city of london? this is the development of london? this is the development of the city of london corporation which manages the city affairs and financial services are very much a danger and at risk in these discussions of being forgotten in the brexit negotiations in the financial service sector represents 7% and we are talking about 130 billion to the exchequer every year in terms of output and is usually
11:44 pm
important sector in using very colourful language that the financial services sector is at risk of being the neglected child and acrimonious divorce between two pa rents acrimonious divorce between two parents will be running in between the two with its pyjamas. so, very colourful language that they‘ re using here and the serious point they're making using here and the serious point they‘ re making is using here and the serious point they're making is that there has to be focus on this and this whole issue of equivalent, with the eu will grant equivalents to allow the uk —based banks and otherfinancial institutions to sell their products to customers based in the eu. that is what this is all centred on in the point is .1% of gdp is represented by fishing, 7% represented by fishing, 7% represented by fishing, 7% represented by financial services and this is really important. and running out of time along with her the best video of the brexit. just days after they have to reach the deal. let's look at the daily mail. the headline. it is covid—19
11:45 pm
hysteria. talking about the situation in is because supermarkets have banned stock sales which have not been deemed an essential item and on social distancing, great on the welsh border. i do not think it is hysteria. i would say it's over the top. because i think saying it is hysteria somehow fuels hysteria and so, it does seem extreme and what socks are nonessential items, for some people, they are absolutely crucial in having fed the homeless for years. in gloves, crucial in having fed the homeless foryears. in gloves, scarves crucial in having fed the homeless for years. in gloves, scarves and looking after your extremities and ludlum people who cannot afford heating bills. socks, iwould argue are essential. and toasters, bedding, maybe not scented candles,
11:46 pm
but candles and torches, what was michael the going to ban batteries next? what also, oi'i on this breaker, it seems that in the and police forces are looking covertly spying on millions of people. so, ido covertly spying on millions of people. so, i do not remember if it is on page two or the other pages of the daily mail, but that will anger a lot of people in its by monitoring social distancing. reading a few tweets, i think the challenge for political leaders is, they have all of the economic sites. they have foreign policy, domestic policy and in the end, it's always about the event that you can't predict. a long time was ten months of been and not that he's got everything perfect, no one has everything perfect, but
11:47 pm
understand that he really needs to reach out to people in the succession of tweets and asking people to understand that not going to dinner with somebody and raining in in the hope of several weeks' time, with a script use and, when the lockdowns, things will get better, but we all need to play our pa rt better, but we all need to play our part and that's the delicate balance. whether it's borisjohnson, emmanuel macron, or the leaders across the road, if you lost your credibility and your political capital on everything and spending it unwisely, like children in poverty and food, not a good look. more about the clothes and toys banned from the shops, the issue is that every leader on the road is when you get, are they? so they're trying to make policy and some may seem actually bizarre, such as saying that socks are nonessential
11:48 pm
items which everyone is focusing on and the supermarket and plastic sheeting, so you cannot access what is behind there and it is going to end of people. people are going to say came on the second, this makes no sense because i can say came on the second, this makes no sense because i canjust go online and order this anyway, which will probably arrive in a couple of hours of the next day. it's what people are trying to make sense of in this crazy world that we are living in and itjust does not add up. it is very strange and this is where the evolution really, some would sink into its own and very much bites back. you have wills going down at the moment during its own thing and proposing it's to be locked down and then policing its border now, scotland and get something with its five to a system which been announced today and then you've got england doing its own thing and we have problems with them pushing back and northern ireland is well doing their thing as well. end
11:49 pm
of the leaders pushing back with the streets of this town hall meeting and now warrington. it is difficult, it's very difficult time, i do think the government has to try to explain to people what the ultimate strategy is. burnett would have a vaccine potentially. it might be even longer. that seems to be missing. we don't have a get out for the next six months looks and we don't have any vision of that and people would expect that eight months into this, that we would have some visibility by now. and i think over the summer, we got lulled into a false sense of security and as soon as you're eating out to help and all that sort of stuff, this is as you open up the economy a bit, you're going to get the spikes and interesting that the entire ministers questions that keir starmer was really pushing the prime minister on how do you get out of
11:50 pm
tier 2 and tier 3? what are the metrics that you will use and is in this our rate that measures the rate of infection spreading, what do you actually measure what is the endgame here? and that is the really is to communicate more clearly because all of us are a bit lost at the moment. what is the endgame is we all want to know. that's it for the papers this hour. thank you ali miraj and benedicte paviot. from goodbye for now. hello, i'm jane dougall with your latest sports news. a patrick bamford hatrick spoiled aston villa's plans to go top of the premier league tonight. villa had had a 100% record before defeat to leeds. it took bamford 55 minutes to break the deadlock, this was his second in the 67th with a stunning shot
11:51 pm
from the edge of the box. just a few minutes later he got to keep the match ball. dodging four villa shirts to shoot into the top left corner. the 3—0 win moves leeds up to third in the table. villa stay second. it's a dream come true, i think before the game at a feeling that i would score. probably testament to the way teams work. i think that without them i would not be able to score the goals that i have it. it will be telling my kids at some point in the future about this and i'm sure i will never forget it. a convincing win for scotland women who were back in action after seven months away from the game. they beat albania 3—0 in their european qualifier. a caroline weir free kick set up captain rachel corsie to get the first goal in the first half. weir then got two of her own, including a penalty in injury time. scotland play finland next on tuesday. and in rugby, scotland men have beaten georgia 48—7 in their international test match at murrayfield. three tries in the first half put
11:52 pm
scotland in a commanding 17—0 lead at half—time, and after the break — gregor townsend's side scored five more, including this one from debutant duhan van der merwe. the former england captain chris robshaw has apologised after england's test against the barbarians was called off due to players breaching covid restrictions. robshaw was one of 12 barbarians players who left their hotel bubble to go out for dinner in central london. he said "i want to express my deepest apologies. my actions were irresponsible and i'm sincerely remorseful for what i've done." st helens moved a step closer to a third super league crown in a row with a 40—8 win over leeds. meanwhile bevan french scored a hat—trick as second—placed wigan strengthened their their claims for a grand final place with a 58—12 thrashing of last season's finalists salford.
11:53 pm
mercedes‘ valtteri bottas was fastest at second practice for the portugal grand prix, with team—mate lewis hamilton eighth. it's the first grand prix in the country since 1996. meanwhile max verstappen and lance stroll have escaped punishment for their involvement in a crash during second practice. the pair collided as verstappen tried to overtake stroll after they had raced down the pit straight. and there was more drama at the circuit with pierre gasly having to take quick action when his alpha tauri car burst into flames. the french driver managed to escape and marshalls quickly extinguished the blaze. dan evans is into the semi—finals of the european 0pen in antwerp after victory over karen khachanov in three sets in antwerp. there was controversy at the end of the second set. khacanov taking his anger out on the net, then the umpires chair! furious at losing. evans will face france's ugo humbert tomorrow for a place in the final. for many, he is the king,
11:54 pm
one of the greatest footballers ever to have played the game. we are of course talking about pele. the brazillian turns 80 today and has celebrated his birthday, in a rather unusual way. many footballers have released singles, but usually at the height of their careers. to celebrate becoming an 0ctogenarian pele has released a song telling people to "listen to the old man". good advice as patrick geary reports! these pictures are half a century old but they still crackle with energy. the man they shipped climbing to the top of the world is now 80 and the time has slowed pele it has not silenced him. always a lover of music, this is his new single. listen to the old man. fitting then that he also released it.
11:55 pm
translation: about my 80 years, first, i have to thank god for giving me health so i can be here today, lucid. many times not so smart, but lucid. jokes apart, i can be here lucid and be welcomed anywhere i go. the question of who is football's greatest is impossible to ever fully answer. depending on how you wait history, judge style and analyse numbers. it is difficult to even count exactly how many goals pele scored and is less chronicled eight we know him he won three world cups and is less chronicled age but we know him age but we know he he won three world cups and was voted the player of the last century and once start alongside sylvester stallone. introducing pele. you want to play football against the germans? why not. he is still football's leading man in many ways. one of the greatest players to ever don the boots. thank you for everything you've done. happy birthday. 2006 is one of the greatest days of my life when you give me the famous shirt with the number ten
11:56 pm
and your sonic was and i will keep and your signing was on it. i will keep that with me forever. happy birthday to his majesty, his highness, the one, the king. pelle celebrated his birthday away from his adoring world. his beloved home country brazil is one of the worst hit by coronavirus but at this moment what better way than to toast a man who lit up football even in black—and—white. the legend. i cannot believe he is 80, he looks incredible. and that's all the sport for now. hello. if you are hoping to get out about this weekend, the weather may have an impact on your plans. it is looking decidedly unsettled. it will be windy, some heavy rain at times but not all the time. some drier and brighter moments as well. low pressure in charge of the weather at the moment. quite a big low
11:57 pm
and deep low as well. a lot of white lines and isobars quashing together. it shows we will have strong winds and the strongest of those will always be in association with this band of rain. the wet and windiest weather to start saturday across the western side of the uk, the rain ban will push it eastwards through the day and you can see the bright green and yellow colours showing up, a short and sharp burst of really intense rainfall accompanied by the really squally winds pushing eastwards as we go through the day. largely dry in the southeast. sunshine and showers from the west. windy for all and strong winds along the lines of the rain band. and temperatures 17 degrees across the southeast. turning cooler and fresher from the northwest as the rain band clears its way through. the rain will persist across east anglia and the southeast
11:58 pm
for a good part of saturday night. clear spells and showers follow on from the west and don't forget, the clocks go back an hour through the early hours of sunday. the end of the british summertime and as the weather goes, summer has long since left us, and it's an autumnal weahter chart that takes us into sunday. low pressure again up to the northwest of the uk. pretty brisk winds on sunday, not quite as windy and it would have been on saturday. some swells of sunshine and showers as well and the most frequent and plentiful across the western areas. i think we will also see quite a few run again across the english channel coast. as i mentioned it will be windy, strongest winds across the west of scotland. these are the average wind speeds. quite a cool feel as well, with temperatures between 11 and 14 degrees. we head into the new working week, low pressure still with us. it will lose some of its intensity as we go into the monday. the winds will ease a little but still some showers and rain around. and it is looking like a very unsettled week ahead. that is it from me for now. enjoy your weekend.
