"long and difficult winter" if people don't get vaccinated against covid—i9. dr susan hopkins, from the uk health security agency, said the virus is circulating at high levels in communities. dr hopkins said although the covid—i9 booster rollout was going well, more people need to come forward to get their top—up jabs. 60% of the population that are being offered the boosters are taking it up. i think it's lower than we saw in the first round, that may be due to people thinking they are already protected which is why we're giving a lot of public health messages about why it's so important to them to come forward for the third dose. it's also been made easier to get that third dose as close to six months as possible by releasing the vaccinations just after five months. we are seeing immune waning effects from the vaccine and we know the virus is circulating at very high levels in our community so unless people get vaccinated we will have a long and difficult winter. sir keir starmer has accused the prime minister of �*corrupt
and contemptible' behaviour in trying to �*protect�* the conservative mp owen paterson — after he was found to have broken lobbying rules. the labour leader said the government's attempt this week to overhaul the system thatjudges mps was "trashing" the uk's reputation for upholding democratic standards. cabinet minister george eustice has dismissed the situation as a "storm in a teacup". our political correspondent ione wells reports. the symbol of british democracy in the uk and overseas. but after a week where the government u—turned on its plans to overhaul the system that holds mps to account here, just as one of their own mps was facing a 30 day suspension, some fear that image has been turned upside down. it's a pattern of behaviour, and what makes me most angry is the prime minister is trashing the reputation of our democracy and our country, and so this is far from a one—off and a u—turn, you know, a bad week for the government. it's a pattern of behaviour by a prime minister who doesn't know
how to uphold standards in public life. the labour leader's anger is tangible after conservative mps blocked a recommendation to suspend their mp owen paterson after he breached lobbying rules, calling instead for an overhaul of the mps standards watchdog. the government u—turned on their plans less than 2a hours later, and owen paterson has since resigned. while the government has apologised and called the move a mistake, today the environment secretary claimed the vote was not about trying to let owen paterson off the hook. the vote wasn't to reject the report that had been put together, the vote was to establish an appeals process so that mps in this sort of position that, yes, owen paterson was in but others
as well in future would have a right of appeal, and i think that's right. it is still an important objective to have due process here, to have a right of appeal, but obviously we can only take that forward with the agreement and cooperation of other parties. but the opposition don't buy the argument this was not about owen paterson, and chair of the parliament standards committee, the labour mp chris bryant, says parliament should still pass the motion to suspend him to show beyond doubt that his behaviour was unacceptable. he says his committee will consider proposed reforms to the system to judge mps, and they will produce a report on possible changes before christmas. on monday, mps will debate the issues that owen paterson's case has thrown up in parliament, but the goodwill among opposition mps to cooperate with the government's ideas for reform now appear thin on the ground. ione wells, bbc news. in texas — police have opened a criminal investigation after eight people died at the "astroworld" music festival in houston. they died after a crowd surge on the opening night of the event headlined by rapper travis scott. police say they're looking
into reports that somebody in the audience had been injecting people with drugs. the musician has encouraged anyone with information to come forward as sean dilley reports. i just want to send out prayers to... to the ones that was lost last night. his shock and trauma is clear. on his social media, travis scott reflected on a night of entertainment that went tragically wrong. i'm honestlyjust devastated. i could never imagine anything like this to have happened. i'm going to do everything i can to keep you guys updated. signs of trouble were first seen shortly after 9pm local time. as the crowd advanced towards the stage, entertainment was replaced by panic. casualties swiftly overwhelmed the venue's first aiders. at first confusion, but then mayhem, with people pushing and shoving to make their escape.
by the end of friday night, eight people had died. hundreds received medical treatment at the scene and 25 were taken to hospital. police in houston have launched a criminal investigation after suggestions of foul play. one of the narratives was injecting other people with drugs. we do have a report of a security officer, according to the medical staff, that was out and treating them last night, that he was reaching over to restrain or grab a citizen and he felt a prick in his neck. most who attended the concert did not see what led to the deaths and injuries, but many have shared their accounts of what they saw. this isn'tjust, ithink, people falling down and being trampled. i mean 11 people were sent to the hospital with cardiac arrest,
you know, among the others that were already there. there were something else i think going on which is what has been suggested by what we see so far. investigators will now be speaking to those at the event who may have information that could help them understand what exactly happened and who, if anyone, may be to blame. sean dilley, bbc news. the british prime minister is urging countries at the cop26 climate summit in glasgow to "pull together and drive for the line," as the conference enters its second and final week. borisjohnson said �*bold compromises' and �*ambitious commitments�* were needed to tackle climate change. our political correspondent chris mason reports. it is half—time at the climate summit. the people most affected by climate change are no longer some imagined future generation but young people alive today. perhaps that will give us the impetus we need to rewrite our story. to turn this tragedy into a triumph. in the first week, familiar faces strolling the glasgow stage.
big numbers, big promises and faraway dates, but some optimism from the government. i think always when you have a multilateral event like this, to try to get agreement, there is going to be a lot of work and a lot of diplomacy goes to get an outcome. i�*m talking to people here at this conference have been pretty much to every cop since it began and they are telling me at this one, they are actually seeing action, they are seeing things take shape in a way they�*ve not seen before. so what has been achieved so far? ministers point to new commitments to net—zero carbon emissions by the middle of the century, meaning 90% of the world economy is covered, ending and reversing deforestation with more than 120 countries signed up, and over 100 countries have agreed to cut their methane emissions by 30% by 2030. but there are plenty, including campaigner greta thunberg, who think this is
nowhere near enough. this is no longer a climate conference, this is now a global north greenwash festival, a two—week—long celebration of business as usual and blah blah blah. they cannot ignore the scientific consensus and, above all, they cannot ignore us, the people, including their own children. the big aim of this conference is to limit the global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees compared with pre—industrial times, to minimise the impact of climate change, but this is a huge challenge. it is complicated and it is difficult, involving around 200 countries, each with their own other priorities and concerns. and so the second week begins. the search for compromise, agreement and promises continues. chris mason, bbc news. the headlines on bbc news...
