there. that is it for the papers for this hour and we will be back at 1130 for round two. right now, it's time for the sport. good evening. we start with cricket because england are in a commanding position on day one of their third test against india at headingley. the visitors chose to bat — and they've probably regretted that ever since — because they were all out forjust 78 before tea. joe wilson was watching. strange things happen at headingley�*s cricket ground, the unexpected, the dramatic. an indian team spilling over with confidence collapsed. james anderson took the first three wickets, including india's captain
10:51 pm
virat kohli for seven. 0llie robinson dismissed rishabh pant. controlled aggression is the big idea. little more india's captain could do now, except count. is that rohit sharma? could that be 67—6? yeah. and this here withjoe root�*s stretching catch was 78 all out. so, how did that happen? well, england bowled with extreme discipline. why waste time with intimidation when you can be taking wickets? this ground of the extraordinary, where grown men dress as seagulls to pursue a six foot bag of chips, was now the scene of serene english batting. where english fans might have waited for something to go wrong, nothing did. runs just kept flowing and india on the first day lost sight of the match. rory burns, and with him haseeb hameed, a new opening partnership, added 120 runs together and they're still going. for england, better things have happened here, but not many. joe wilson, bbc news, headingley.

paralympics gb are fifth on the medals table after day one of the games with one gold, four silvers and a bronze. three of those medals were in the pool and three in the velodrome — and it was dame sarah storey who got gb�*s first gold. she beat team—mate crystal lane—wright in the final of the c5 3000 metres, individual pursuit. 0ur paralympics reporter rachel latham looks ahead to day two. looking ahead to tomorrow, we will finally see simmons and actions. she goes to the 200 metres individual. it's notjust goes to the 200 metres individual. it's not just for goes to the 200 metres individual. it's notjust for going for great britain. also grace harvey and macy summers will also be going in the 200 metres individual classification. everyone will think that ellie is good for the gold but
10:53 pm
she has been chasing ellie's tell for a while now. so we'll have to see who comes out on top moving to the equestrian, so if he was hoping to continue with her gold medal from rio and pick up another gold medal and will be seeing the reigning champion in the 500 metre time trial. she will have tough competition from canada. can she pick up another gold medal here in tokyo? will have to wait and see. to football — there were just three ties in the league cup second round tonight but there were goals galore. a great response from arsenal after their difficult start to the premier league season. they looked to get their campaign up and running against championship side west brom. with a comfortable 6—nil win. arsenal captain, pierre—emerick aubameyang with a hat—trick on his first start of the season, before goals from nicolas pepe, bukayo saka and alexandre lacazette helped to seal the win away. elsewhere, newcastle lost out to fellow premier league side burnley, it ended 4—3 on penalties
10:54 pm
at stjames park, with a debut to remember for goalkeeper wayne hennessey. and southampton secured the biggest away win in their history as they beat newport county 8—0. there was two goals from armando bro—ya on his debut and mohamed elyoun—oussi got a hat—trick on his first saints appearance in over two years. and the news that all tottenham fans had been waiting for — harry kane says he'll be staying at the club, despite intense speculation about the england captain's future. in a statement on social media, kane said he's 100% focused on helping the team achieve success, and that the messages of support he's had in the last few weeks have been incredible. manchester city had been keen to sign kane, who says that he will be staying this summer. with the international window just around the corner, fifa president gianni infantino has asked the uk government for exemptions so that premier league players can travel to red—list countries for world cup qualifiers.
10:55 pm
english clubs have reluctantly — but unanimously — agreed not to let players travel to matches in countries that require them to quarantine on their return. the rules would apply to nearly 60 players, including everton's richarlison, who would miss brazil's world cup qualifier against argentina — while liverpool's mohamed salah would also miss egypt's qualifiers against angola and gabon. rangers have travelled to armenia for their second leg tie with alashkert without manager steven gerrard and a number of players because of a covid outbreak in the squad. assistant gary mcallister and coach michael beale will lead the team tomorrow, and it is unclear if gerrard or the unspecified players missing will be able to return in time for sunday's match with celtic at ibrox. leeds rhinos moved back into the super league play—off positions with a 14—0 win over wigan warriors tonight.
10:56 pm
richie myler scored the pick of the tries as the away side become the first team to stop wigan from scoring a single point in a home game in super league history. and the reigning t20 blast champions — the notts outlaws — have been beaten by the hampshire hawks in a low—scoring but thrilling quarterfinal. hampshire struggled with the bat and were only able to set a target of 126, with 18—year—old tom prest getting 44, but it proved enough. notts needed just three runs off the last over, but they were bowled out for 123 as hampshire head to finals day for the first time since 2017. and that's all the sport for now. hello there. we just had the hottest day of the month on wednesday. and it was western scotland the place to be. looks lovely in the sunshine and temperatures reached 27 celsius. now, it won't get as hot as that again through the rest of the month because we've got this weather front moving down toward the
10:57 pm
southwest of the uk. it's bringing in cloud, one or two spots of rain just for a while, and as that weather front moves through, so we introduce a cooler wind off the north sea. that's blowing in cooler air and this dropping the temperatures as well. we start with some fog, though, quite extensively across northern ireland in the morning. not so much fog in scotland. the fog will lift. the cloud that we start with in wales and the southwest will break up. sunshine for many western areas. but the wind will continue to blow in more cloud to the eastern side of the uk. should get more sunshine, though, for the northern isles, some areas of cloud lingering across some easternmost parts of scotland. much of the country, though, seeing the sunshine and temperatures 23, maybe 24 in the west of scotland this time. could make 22 or 23 in fermanagh and tyrone. always warmer for wales, western parts of england. down the eastern side, a lot of cloud, a cooler wind as well. and around the coasts in particular, temperatures could be no better then 16 or 17 degrees. there could be a hint of sunshine now and again, but generally it's going to be
10:58 pm
pretty cloudy at headingley for day 2 of an exciting test match. not quite so chilly on friday. by this stage, the cloud is pushing more towards wales and western parts of england, and that means we should get a bit more sunshine for the eastern side of england. there will be some areas of cloud for scotland and northern ireland, some spells of sunshine too, and temperatures are back down to around 19 or 20 degrees typically, perhaps a little lower than that in the far north and east of scotland. heading into the weekend, big area of low pressure is bringing lots of showers into central europe. they are not far away from the southeast on saturday, but over the weekend, it's high—pressure that should tend to dominate. always a wind coming in from the north sea, some brisk winds for the southeast of england. should be a fair bit of sunshine, though, i think on saturday, some patchy cloud bubbling up here and there. and in the sunshine, again, across western scotland, we could see temperatures up to 22 degrees. second half of the weekend, still dry, high pressure around, bit breezy and cooler around some of those north sea coasts, a bit more cloud perhaps coming into scotland and northern ireland, sunshine for england and wales and temperatures
10:59 pm
typically 19 or 20 celsius.

welcome to newsday. reporting live from singapore, i'm karishma vaswani. the headlines: the united states says it will continue to evacuate people from afghanistan, even after the august 31st deadline. there is no deadline on our work to help any remaining american citizens who decide they want to leave to do so, along with the many afghans who have stood by us over these many years and want to leave and have been unable to do so. so what awaits the refugees taken to america? we'll have a special report from texas. also in the programme: researchers say booster shots of the covid vaccine may be needed, in the wake of a study suggesting waning protection after six months. and day one of the action
