a corrupt country, nor do i believe that our institutions are corrupt, and i think it's very, very important to say that. we have a very, very tough system of parliamentary democracy and scrutiny, not least by the media, and i think everybody can see that. i think what you've got is cases were, sadly, mps have broken the rules in the past and may be guilty of breaking the rules today. what i want to see is them facing appropriate sanctions. what was your second question, sorry?— second question, sorry? inaudible i don't second question, sorry? inaudible ldon't want — second question, sorry? inaudible i don't want to _ second question, sorry? inaudible i don't want to single _ second question, sorry? inaudible i don't want to single out _ second question, sorry? inaudible i don't want to single out any - i don't want to single out any particular countries for shivi in and hectoring now. ithink particular countries for shivi in and hectoring now. i think everybody knows who needs to do what. everybody can see the equations,
everybody understands the intricate balance of the negotiations. but what we need is for those leaders to take their responsibilities, ring up the negotiators and urge them to make progress in the last few days. ben webster of the times. i make progress in the last few days. ben webster of the times. tomorrow, at denmark and _ ben webster of the times. tomorrow, at denmark and costa rica _ ben webster of the times. tomorrow, at denmark and costa rica are going l at denmark and costa rica are going to launch _ at denmark and costa rica are going to launch the — at denmark and costa rica are going to launch the command _ at denmark and costa rica are going to launch the command here - at denmark and costa rica are going to launch the command here at - at denmark and costa rica are going i to launch the command here at cop26, the beyond _ to launch the command here at cop26, the beyond oil— to launch the command here at cop26, the beyond oil and _ to launch the command here at cop26, the beyond oil and gas alliance - to launch the command here at cop26, the beyond oil and gas alliance with - the beyond oil and gas alliance with a quite _ the beyond oil and gas alliance with a quite modest _ the beyond oil and gas alliance with a quite modest aim _ the beyond oil and gas alliance with a quite modest aim of— the beyond oil and gas alliance with a quite modest aim of phasing - the beyond oil and gas alliance with a quite modest aim of phasing out. a quite modest aim of phasing out oil a quite modest aim of phasing out all and _ a quite modest aim of phasing out all and gas — a quite modest aim of phasing out oil and gas. over— a quite modest aim of phasing out oil and gas. over the _ a quite modest aim of phasing out oil and gas. over the next - a quite modest aim of phasing out oil and gas. over the next 30 - a quite modest aim of phasing out. oil and gas. over the next 30 years. will you _ oil and gas. over the next 30 years. will you join— oil and gas. over the next 30 years. will you join them _ oil and gas. over the next 30 years. will you join them and _ oil and gas. over the next 30 years. will you join them and if— oil and gas. over the next 30 years. will you join them and if not, - oil and gas. over the next 30 years. will you join them and if not, why. will you join them and if not, why not? _ will you 'oin them and if not, why not? . ~ will you 'oin them and if not, why not? ., ~' , ., will you 'oin them and if not, why not? ., ~' i., ~ ., will you 'oin them and if not, why not? ., ~ . ., ., ., will you 'oin them and if not, why not? ., . ., ., ., ., not? thank you. what we want to do is move beyond _ not? thank you. what we want to do is move beyond hydrocarbons - is move beyond hydrocarbons completely in the uk and do it as fast as possible. we set an absolute blistering pace for moving beyond hydrocarbon, internal combustion engine vehicles. no new ice cars
will be sold in the uk from 2030. we are going to d carbonised our power system by 2035, we are taking gigantic steps forward to. and the proof of what the uk can do in terms of moving beyond hydrocarbons can be seen and what we have already achieved. going from 80% dependency on coal 50 years ago to about i% now and going down. and going down to zero. that's what we can do. we will look at what denmark and costa rica are proposing and i would certainly encourage everybody to move beyond coal and move beyond hydrocarbons. i think one of the most important developments of the summit is, as i said you, i think you were here for the press conference on tuesday, was the press conference on tuesday, was the transition deal for energy, they just transition dealfor the transition deal for energy, they just transition deal for we've been
able to do with south africa. i congratulate his leadership on this issue. and that is the way forward. countries coming together, $8.5 billion to support south africa's transition away from carbon fuels. quite an amazing thing and it is the model that i think is going to help us to crack the problem. if we can get enough countries to agree to it and to sign up. around the world. what tangible difference has your presence — what tangible difference has your presence here made, and if positive at all. _ presence here made, and if positive at all. why— presence here made, and if positive at all, why not stay on till the end whenever— at all, why not stay on till the end whenever that might be in order to -et whenever that might be in order to get that— whenever that might be in order to get that ball definitively over the line? _ get that ball definitively over the line? and secondly, are you

about how they are getting on. and to encourage them to make some progress. and to keep going. they have been hard at it. the people helping the british presidency and ministers around the world journey together to try to get this thing over the line. they've been working on believably hard and we have just been encouraging them and trying to set some goals, some things that we think we have really got to achieve and try to get them to focus as i said on those three pillars. adaptation, mitigation and finance. as you look at the final period of this negotiation there is no doubt at all that finance is the great solvent that matters. it is finance that will come if we cannot unlock this, if we can make progress, it will depend on the finance and that fundamental compact between the developing world committed climate vulnerable world and we in the
developed world who are overwhelmingly responsible historically for commissions and who continue to be responsible for so much of the omissions around the world. and with that of very, very sorry to tell you that i have to go and catch a climate friendly means of transport back to london. thank you, everybody. thank you. the prime minister leaves _ you, everybody. thank you. the prime minister leaves the _ you, everybody. thank you. the prime minister leaves the stage _ you, everybody. thank you. the prime minister leaves the stage at _ minister leaves the stage at glasgow. he went up on the train this morning to mentally see if that is how he is returning. striking a not surprising, really that half the questions were about mps conduct, behaviour, the rules. that was perhaps always going to overshadow. but he is there at the cop26 climate conference, the un conference and the draught agreement very much one of a few can you imagine, draught agreements was produced this morning. so half the questions were about climate as well. we will turn
to the politics that was currently under discussion there in the next few minutes, more for westminster on all of that. where there to hear about that and hear about climate. we'll start very much with that topic. the prime minister saying it is in the balance. try to get 1.5. he said we can still get there with some effort is one of the answers the prime minister gave. let's talk to our science correspondent rebecca morelle. she was listening to that news briefing. what is your take, rebecca, first of all on the atonement, the optimism or otherwise. what is the messaging thatis otherwise. what is the messaging that is going on there? this otherwise. what is the messaging that is going on there?— that is going on there? this really was the prime _ that is going on there? this really was the prime minister _ that is going on there? this really was the prime minister urging - was the prime minister urging countries to push for words. i think what has been increasingly clear
here over the last week and a half is that the pledges that have been put forward by countries to cut their greenhouse gas emissions are not enough. we want to get to 1.5 degrees without the number we are hearing all the time, that the threshold where if we go beyond that then we move into a dangerous climate change territory. we need to cut our missions if we want to get to that. need to fall by 45% by 2030, that in eight years time. not very much time. in the moment you look at the projections even with all of the premises here it looks like they're going to rise by 14% by 2030. i think it is becoming increasingly clear that cute, you know, what is being offered up to solve this problem here is not going to meet the expectations and keeping 1.5 on the table. but, you know, the draught agreement that was mentioned today does have some aspect of it which could help us to do that if
not this year than perhaps next year. not this year than perhaps next ear. , ., , ., , year. there were several questions the are year. there were several questions they are about _ year. there were several questions they are about people _ year. there were several questions they are about people quite - year. there were several questionsj they are about people quite bluntly asking which world leaders are standing in the wake and which countries essentially are not stepping up to the plate? boris johnson would not really be drawn on that but we have commented over the last week and to have certain agreements have been reached and there's always a caveat, such and such a major polluter is not on par with that one. different polluter is not on board with the other. where are some, i know we are not at the end yet, but where are some of the pinch points and where our delegates looking as to those nations, perhaps it's all of us the need to do more? what are people saying there? it’s what are people saying there? it's actuall what are people saying there? it�*s actually all of us the need to do more. one of the interesting things thatis more. one of the interesting things that is in this draught agreement todayis that is in this draught agreement today is the requirement of countries to come back next year with more ambitious pledges. which does not sound like much, but actually they were supposed to come
backin actually they were supposed to come back in five years time, sojulie bringing that timeframe forward. but there is a feeling that some countries here, perhaps china and india and are going to be so keen to do that. you know, do they want to report their plans every single year? some countries will not want to do that. in the agreement as well there was some mention of phasing out coal and stopping fossil fuel subsidies, well we know that fossil fuel rich nations like saudi arabia, like australia for example may be will not be so keen on that text being in the agreement. the really big challenge here is what they're trying to do is to get nearly 200 different nations to agree, these are places with different problems, different economies, very different agendas and all seen the impact of climate change in a different way as well. and every single country here to agree to a set of words, to some
kind of agreement is going to be really, really challenging. that has always been the challenge with these processes but they did in paris in 2015, and they got to the road to commit to try and keep temperatures down to 1.5 degrees celsius, but paris was all about yakima lesueur, at glasgow is all about well, how are we going to do that? can we really to that? we're still waiting to get that detail here, but there's going to be a lot of wrangling here for the next couple of days. whether it finishes on friday and goes on it's the weekend who can say at the moment, but it's going to be a lot of sleepless nights for the negotiators here and probably us to in some ways. get negotiators here and probably us to in some ways-— in some ways. get lots of coffee in. rebecca has _ in some ways. get lots of coffee in. rebecca has been _ in some ways. get lots of coffee in. rebecca has been there _ in some ways. get lots of coffee in. rebecca has been there throughout and the deadline i believe it's six o'clock on friday. rebecca making a point to their that it may well extend beyond that. but we will have more and talk more about that draught climate agreement a little bit later in this hour.
the conservative mp and former attorney general sir geoffrey cox has said he doesn't believe he breached the rules governing mps' behaviour with his work advising the government of the british virgin islands. the mp for torridge and west devon was pictured taking part in an online hearing about corruption in the caribbean country — apparently while in his parliamentary office. sir geoffrey said he will cooperate with an investigation into the incident, but added that it is for his constituents to decide whether they're happy for him to represent them. speaking at the cop 26 summit in glasgow, the prime minister says the guidelines on mps' standards is clear. those who break the rules must be investigated and should be punished. and on second jobs i would say that
for hundreds of years mps have gone to parliament and also done workers as doctors, and lawyers commit soldiers or firefighters, writers or all sorts of other traits. and on the whole the world of the uk ablation is understood that is actually strengthen our democracy because people basically feel that parliamentarians do need to have some experience of the world. but if that system is going to continue today, then it is crucial that mps follow the rules. and the rules say committed to personal things, you must put yourjob as an mp first and you must devote yourself primarily and above all to your constituents and above all to your constituents and the people who send you to westminster, to parliament. and they also say that you should not use her position as an mp to lobby or
otherwise intervene on behalf of any outside commercial interests. it's notjust outside commercial interests. it's not just you outside commercial interests. it's notjust you have outside commercial interests. it's not just you have to outside commercial interests. it's notjust you have to register those interests, you cannot lobby or make presentations while an mp on behalf of those interests. those of the rules and they must be enforced and those who do not obey them should become of course, face sanctions. just a moment or two i'm going to be finding out how much of this is cutting through with voters with john curtis. burlesque at the latest the ground. our political correspondent jonathan blake is at westminster. we knew it would happen but the premise or in glasgow trying to rally action around climate change. but so many of those questions dominating onjeffrey cox and the wider picture stuff is of no surprise coming his way on this this
afternoon. the story rumbles on. he did not talk about sirjeffrey, the latest mp to fill the glare of spotlight of scrutiny his activities beyond hisjob spotlight of scrutiny his activities beyond his job as an mp. spotlight of scrutiny his activities beyond hisjob as an mp. but he did talk i think there as you heard him cover pretty unconvincing terms about what the rules are governing second jobs that mps are allowed to undertake and what should be expected of those mps if they break those rules. and that's perhaps an attempt by the prime minister to remind people that there are rules in place and there is a process for those accused of breaking them. the government had its fingers burned pretty badly last week when it attempted to overhaul the system of standards and rules that mps have to live up to in the process that mps go through if they are accused of breaking those rules. we are seeing now as a result of the examples
coming to light, examples being held up coming to light, examples being held up about mps that may or may not have broken the rules but have done things which certainly they feel is not quite right. sir geoffrey cox saying he will cooperate with any investigation into what he has done but offering a pretty lengthy defence of his actions. the prime minister choosing not to wade into that case or offer him any direct support. what does he go from here? i don't know how long the investigation take some of the one that geoffrey cox is alluding to in a suppose it depends whether moore emerges about other mps, possibly. the processes can go on for a long time, is pretty opaque looking in from the outside. my not get much of an update as to whether sir geoffrey
cox is being investigated and specifically for white. it's up to the parliamentary commissioner for standards to look into that. and to publish any details as she sees fit. in due course. but the debate is happening as to what should be the rules around mps and their work outside of their role as a member of parliament. i have to say there is no sort of groundswell of opinion of westminster for a no sort of groundswell of opinion of westminsterfor a banned outright on mps working second jobs and other jobs in addition to their work. it can enrich their work as a member of parliament and benefit democracy as a country as a whole. as to what could be done for tightening of the rules would have to be done on a cross party basis. the government, as i say, suffer the consequences of trying to influence perhaps a little bit too far that process. will mps
be able to work together on all sides of the house of commons to figure out what should be done? that certainly won't be easy and will probably take some time in itself. thanks very much for now. jonathan blake there at westminster. we'rejoined now by professor sirjohn curtice of the university of strathclyde. great to have you with us. welcome again. how much traction is this gaining? particularly the issue of second jobs, gaining? particularly the issue of secondjobs, do gaining? particularly the issue of second jobs, do we know much about what polling tells us about what people think of an mp having a second job? we people think of an mp having a second job?— people think of an mp having a second job? second “ob? we do because the stories second job? we do because the stories coming _ second job? we do because the stories coming out _ second job? we do because the stories coming out in _ second job? we do because the stories coming out in the - second job? we do because the stories coming out in the last . second job? we do because the i stories coming out in the last few days we have had two or three poles that have asked people whether or not mps it should be allowed to have a second job and am afraid the bad news for mps is that around two thirds of us think that they should not be allowed to do so. and the truth is that's just part of a broader mood whereby basically the
british public tended to be pretty suspicious of anything that they regard as mps putting their snouts in the trough. and anybody who remembers the arguments about these questions the 1990s or the mps expenses scandal in 2009 should be perfectly well aware that one day open this is an attempt to try and avoid the suspension of owen patterson it's a box of the should have kept the lid very firmly on. in that sense of the situation of the government public on making. bind that sense of the situation of the government public on making. and the remise are government public on making. and the premise are probably _ government public on making. and the premise are probably wishes _ government public on making. and the premise are probably wishes he - government public on making. and the premise are probably wishes he madel premise are probably wishes he made the kind of comments he has made this afternoon a week ago making it quite clear that when mps are thought to have broken the rules or to be found to broken the rules they should face the punishment. that was precisely what the government was seemingly trying to avoid week ago and the truth is that the polls are
government to some degree electorally. we've now had four opinion polls polls on people cosmic voting intentions and in each case the pole done completely after the owen patterson affair first broke and in each case the company to be undertaken a week before, so we have really perfect design of looking at people just before the event, then just after the event such as close as we can get to being an indication of how far this had an impact. and the truth is that three of the polls finds conservative support on my three points in the previous we and said it was down two points at the last set labour support is up a pointer to. last set labour support is up a pointerto. itjust last set labour support is up a pointer to. itjust once at a conservative that was down by three points we could dismiss it as just the random variation to which all polls are subject. when four of them show the same thing the units
certainly in the short term the government has made a hit on this and the crucial question now is will the government to be able to succeed in closing this subject down or not? i think the comments are now going to revisit the issue next monday because they need to unravel the motion that was passed by the comments last week and i think to say that the committee should be allowed to get on with the shop it was already doing to revise the rules around mp�*s second jobs and lobbying and etc. but that does therefore mean there is a continuing reason for this to keep going. the certainly story has kept going longer fit than the arguments about the wallpaper in borisjohnson's flat or indeed his various holidays. this is got a great degree of legs to it from the government needs to stop it from carrying on otherwise it might become one of those
incidents about borisjohnson's incidents about boris johnson's government incidents about borisjohnson's government that people might rememberfor some time to government that people might remember for some time to the government's disadvantage. thank ou, which government's disadvantage. thank you, which suggests _ government's disadvantage. thank you, which suggests would - government's disadvantage. thank you, which suggests would be be speaking again on this, but for now good to have you with us. today is the last day that unvaccinated staff can work in care homes in england, unless they're medically exempt. the rule applies to most people entering care homes including agency workers, tradespeople and occupational therapists. yesterday, the health secretary announced all frontline nhs staff in england must also be fully vaccinated by april. jon donnison reports. for care homes across england, many already short on staff, tonight's midnight deadline has been looming. so you've still got some edges here... here at hill house nursing home in croydon, all workers except two who say they have a medical exemption have now been vaccinated. but for some, they took some persuading. watching the news on the statistics,
i think it made me understand that it is good notjust for myself but also for the residents, to protect them. also my colleagues, my family, the people around me. in croydon and across england there has been a big push to get care home staff vaccinated. but there are still gaps. in croydon we have 94% of care workers that have taken the initial jab. 88% have taken the double jab. we have provided a plethora of initiatives in order to get there. but the government says there are still 32,000 care home workers in england who haven't yet been fully jabbed. unless they have a medical exemption, they will not be able to work in the sector any more until they are double vaccinated. from what we've seen so far from the regulator, we don't anticipate that there really will be situations of care homes being in that kind of situation.
i don't doubt for a second of course there will be some pressure perhaps for some care homes. but we will be working with them very closely, as i say, from this extra funding, the retention funding, the recruitment campaign, the workforce training fund, to do everything we can to give them the support they deserve. today is my last day of caring, which is really sad because i love myjob and i'm quite annoyed about it, to be fair. in regards to this vaccine and i feel like it is being forced on us, or on me. and i don't agree with that, to be fair. and i kind of think it's against human rights. losing people like delma means some care homes could be stretched in terms of staffing. but the government says the compulsory vaccination policy is needed to protect care home residents. and from april, all front line nhs staff in england, unless medically exempt, will also have to be fully vaccinated against covid—19 to keep theirjobs. unions are warning that too could lead to staff shortages.
jon donnison, bbc news. in the past hour the latest uk coronavirus figures have been released. a further 39,329 cases have been confirmed. the deaths of 214 people have been recorded — that's people who tested positive in the past 28 days. it brings the overall death toll during the pandemic to 142,338. the welsh parliament has voted to extend the use of covid passes to cinemas and theatres, from next week. the scheme currently only applies to nightclubs and large events, such as rugby games. visitors will have to show they are fully vaccinated, have tested negative for covid or have recently had the virus to enter the venue.
an experienced caver who was trapped underground for more than two days in wales has been named. george linnane from bristol is said to be in "good spirits" after his remarkable rescue. more than 300 volunteers worked to free mr linnane, after he was injured in a cave system in the brecon beacons. andrew plant reports. george linnane on the right in the same cave system believe the brecon beacons last summer and within that time, maxine bateman, who was one of the first to come to his rescue. when i first saw george, i was really, really upset. it made me feel quite sick in my stomach to think that a friend of mine had had an accident, but later on it was much, much easier, knowing that we were all here for him and making progress. and he was going to come out of that cave. george linnane is an experienced caver, well—known for his expertise and caution. he had fallen as rocks collapsed.
his rescue took more than 50 hours and more 300 volunteers. the passage to get to where george was it tight, flat out crawls, squeezing over boulders and what they say is for every hour you cave, it takes ten hours to rescue you. i set out to go to the cave at six am on sunday morning and it took about an hour for us to reach where the rescue had got so far. i held his hand and stroked his fingers and he gave a squeeze of the hand back and it was nice to feel that from him. i think that was him telling me, i'm ok. i'm just be able to give him that of comfort. it's more intimate, it's that feeling of, we are here for you. george had suffered multiple injuries including a broken leg and jaw but is said to be in good spirits and recovering in hospital thanks to the expertise of the caving community. you never know who it might be.
it could be me, and you hope it would never be a big enough rescue to need as many people as george did, but in this case it needed a lot of us and a lot of us turned up and we were there for him. now it's time for a look at the weather. they come from nick. hi. we have got some damp and chilly weather across parts of england and wales of the moment. and on some sunny spells today. overnight with clear spells will have temperature to drop low enough for a touch of ground frost in a few places. the rest of it with a well skip a lot of cloud around. drizzly mist and fog in places as well. clear spells in northern ireland, northern have a skull and seeing rain moving southwards as the rain goes on. also maybe just giving a touch of ground frost in a few places. much of england and wales st. cloud become come if you spells
after that misty, murky start into the afternoon and wales in northwest england seeing outbreaks of rain. moving through northern ireland into southwest scotland as the afternoon goes on. the weather systems are coming increment weather drinking the wind around western coast, every spieth and some cost around lio mph or so. spieth and some cost around lio mph orso. it spieth and some cost around lio mph or so. it is mild and a touch more mild again but today has been cooler in scotland and northern ireland. hello this is bbc news. the headlines... borisjohnson addresses the cop26 conference, on the day a draft deal is published. he urged world leaders to support the un's climate change agreement here in glasgow the world is closer thanit here in glasgow the world is closer than it has ever been to signalling
the beginning of the end of anthropogenic climate change. the draft agreement urges countries to "strengthen" commitments to keeping temperatures below a 1.5c rise and to give poorer nations more support. but there's criticism it doesn't go far enough people already suffering now even with the 1.1 degrees we have already had and we need to get support to the front lines and those people who are not getting the support they need. former conservative cabinet minister geoffrey cox says he doesn't believe he broke the rules, after images appeared to show him using his westminster office for private work. vaccination deadline — anyone working in a care homes in england must be fullyjabbed by today unless they're medically exempt. an experienced caver trapped underground for two days in wales is named as george linnane — he's said to be in "good spirits" after 250 people were involved in his rescue
——after more than 300 people were involved in his rescue and in sport — after moeen ali hits 51 not out — england's cricketers set new zealand 167 to reach the t20 world cup final sport and for a full round—up from the bbc sport centre. i'm afraid it doesn't look as though england are going to do in the men's t20 world cup. as you mentioned. moeen ali brought up his half century to help england set new zealand a target of 167 to chase in the semifinal of the men's t20 world cup. it was a great innings from moeen ali with some huge hits,
helping england to 166 for 1l from moeen ali with some huge hits, but in reply new zealand are 147 for 5 after 18 overs. jimmy neesham hasjust gone for 27 — a great partnership between him and daryl mitchell, racking up the runs. they need 20 runs from 12 balls. the winner of this will play either pakistan or australia. it gives in the forums which means they've done it. if you remember the other semifinal was australia against pakistan and the winner of that will be into the final on sunday and play new zealand. england will not play any more plants in the t20 world cup. it will be new zealand he will be in the final on sunday and not england. they are now out. so, sunday and not england. they are now out. 50, new zealand winning by five wickets there. and to football. new newcastle head coach eddie howe says it will take a lot of hard work but that newcastle has the ability to stay in the premier league.
he was speaking to the media for the first time since being given the position. newcastle are without a win all season and lie 19th in the league. they face brentford at st james's park after the international break next saturday when howe will take charge for the first time. the new boss refused to be drawn on the controvertial saudi—backed ownership of the club and insisted he took the job for football reasons only. he says he can stop the club from being relegated. i'll commit 100% every single day to try to bring success to newcastle for everybody connected with the club. i believe we have the ability within the scope of the players to achieve that name but it is going to take a lot of hard work. it is going to take us a sacrifice and suffering in terms of the players giving everything that they have to try and commit to the objective that we need. paris saint—germain has confirmed
that one its female players has been arrested following an alleged attack on a fellow team mate last week. amin—ata diallo, who's played for psg for six years, was taken into custody this morning by versailles police following an attack which allegedly left her team mate kheira ham—ra—oui with injuries to her legs. press association are reporting that two masked men dragged hamraoui out of her car and attacked her. paris saint—germain say they condemn the violence committed and has taken all measures to guarantee the health, well—being and safety of its entire women's team. france international hamraoui, joined from barcelona injuly. declan rice has had to withdraw from the england squad due to illness, the fa has confirmed. in a blow for gareth southgate, the midfielder has been forced to return to his club west ham and will play no part in the upcoming qualifiers against albania and san marino. no other additions to the squad are planned at the moment with mason mount and luke shaw still to link up with the group at st george's park.
to rugby union and sale prop bevan rodd, has been called up to the england's squad for the first time for their match against australia on saturday in place ofjoe marler. rodd was born in scotland, but has represented england at age—grade level. a senior cap would commit him to eddiejones' side. marler, who came off the bench in saturday's win over tonga, tested positive for coronavirus on monday evening. wing alex cuthbert will make his first wales appearance for four years as one of five changes for sunday's match against fiji. head coach wayne pivac has ripped up his team sheet, from the defeat against south africa last saturday, putting cuthbert in the side. ellisjenkins will captain wales after performing well in his first test match for three years. full—back liam williams, scrum—half kieran hardy and centre johnny williams have been recalled in a revamped backline. finally, andy murray's on court in the last 16 of the stockholm open. he's playing italian top seed jannick sinner. it's1—1 in the first set.
just to recap on her top story, england have lost new zealand in the semifinal of the t20 cricket world cup. they have lost by five wickets. you can find more on all those stories on the bbc sport website. that is it for now, though, jane. thank you. jane dougal with all the latest sports news there. the time is now 5:37pm. we are going to talk a little bit more about care homes and vaccinations are hoping this half hour and perhaps a little bit more about cop26 as well but before all of that the bbc has become the latest organisation to withdraw from the lgbtq+ charity stonewall�*s diversity programmes through which members get advice on making workplaces inclusive. a statement issued by
the corporation said... there are 900 members of this. lots of organisations we are talking about. there's also a separate thing called the workplace equality index which is essentially a league table of good practices. now, the bbc has been one of a number of organisations now that has not renewed that membership with the organisation. and they said the issue for them was there were questions about whether the bbc could be seen to be impartial when reporting on public policy debates
where stonewall is taking an active role. because stonewall is also a campaigning organisation, has been very vocal on the issue of, say, transgender rights. and so the bbc says it is going to leave this game and of course, i mean, it's not the only one to have done so. the broadcasting watchdog ofcom said it had also had concerns about a risk of perceived bias because of this joint position for stonewall. they said it was a shame, but added it will continue to engage with the bbc on a number of fronts to champion support for lg btq colleagues. but it added later on in its statement, the news comes in the wake of what it says is an organised attack on workplace inclusion that extends far beyond the diversity champions programme, and they say it is shocking that organisations are being pressured into rolling back support for lg btq employees. now, the bbc says this is very much
not what they are doing. they say they are concerned about impartiality and the bbc is fully committed to being an industry—leading employer on lgbtq inclusion. we are proud of our lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans colleagues, and we support them to have fulfilling careers at the bbc. so, very much an issue about that conflict of interest on the issue of impartiality. a un report found 80% of those displaced by the climate emergency are women, and they are on average poorer, less educated and more dependent on subsistence farming. governments have pledged to increase funding, with the uk pledging 220 million dollars to boost schemes tackling gender inequality and climate change. bianca jagger is the ceo and president of the bianca jagger human rights foundation(tx sot)
women are the most effective because they take care of the families, of they take care of the families, of the land, water sources, natural resources, and because they are discriminated and not part of the negotiation at any of the cop summit orany negotiation at any of the cop summit or any of the environmental negotiations that have been taken place. in fact, negotiations that have been taken place. infact, if negotiations that have been taken place. in fact, if we looked at the last cop26 only 37% of women were participating at that cop in madrid. and if you look at the first day here at the cop, of the 117 leaders you only had ten women and 107 men leaders who are speaking, so we welcome the decision by the british government of the 165 million the
starfor government of the 165 million the star for climate government of the 165 million the starfor climate change, government of the 165 million the star for climate change, address climate change on gender, and the united states 14 million and canada to say that they will make sure that 80% will go to gender but it still is not enough. and we have seen that through this cop is the moment and i think that women should be, should have a place at the negotiating table today at cop26 and at every following cop. the treaties, as you just heard that news, is that we're onto probably, if things go as they are at the moment, not to stay under 1.5 celsius increase but to be at 2.7 increase and that will be devastating for people throughout the world and certainly it will be for women and girls who will be the
most disadvantaged.— most disadvantaged. bianca jagger the 're most disadvantaged. bianca jagger they're speaking — most disadvantaged. bianca jagger they're speaking about _ most disadvantaged. bianca jagger they're speaking about the - they're speaking about the disproportionate impact of climate change on women and, interesting just towards the end there she talked about some of the figures. we keep having this figure, don't we, of 1.5 celsius. that is what countries are being urged to get down to but borisjohnson in the news conference the prime minister is backing glasgow today and he gave a news conference in the last hour and he kept talking about that figure. downbeat, ithink, perhaps as a fair word to use. it is going to be tricky to get that figure, he said. essentially all is not lost in world leaders, he was exhorting world leaders, he was exhorting world leaders, he was exhorting world leaders to do more and to pull out all the stops, as he put it, to try to beat that figure. so that is one of the challenges that is absolutely facing the delegates at the conference which in theory ends at six o'clock on friday evening, so there are a couple more days to go
but some very, very hard negotiations to go to try to eat that level does matter try to reach that level does matter try to reach that level. we can now talk to one of the key delegates at the conference. dr say samal is cambodia s environment minister, the president of the senate, and the vice—president he became environment minister in 2013. very good evening to certain you so which adjoinsjoining us bbc news. thank you. i which adjoins 'oining us bbc news. thank ou. ~ ., ., ., ., thank you. i know we have had a few technical gremlins _ thank you. i know we have had a few technical gremlins but _ thank you. i know we have had a few technical gremlins but i _ thank you. i know we have had a few technical gremlins but i hope - thank you. i know we have had a few technical gremlins but i hope we - thank you. i know we have had a few technical gremlins but i hope we can | technical gremlins but i hope we can have something of a chat. i'm interested first of all in the fact that there are not many days left. the british by minister make it very clear there is still a lot to be achieved at this stage. how much optimism do you have that is a really useful agreement can be reached by the end of the week? look... ~ ., .,. ., look... well, that will teach me to use the word _
look... well, that will teach me to use the word gremlins, _ look... well, that will teach me to use the word gremlins, once - look... well, that will teach me to use the word gremlins, once it? i l use the word gremlins, once it? i can only apologise. i'm just going to keep looking down there to see if i can see him. we have been sitting patiently for several minutes and just as we go to him the picture freezes. there is still time and we mean get returned to scotland to speak to him so many apologies until several days to go at cop26. appleby does gives a chance to just talk about one of our other main story is here today because we have been talking about this a lot as well. care homes. let's return to our other main story, today is the last day that unvaccinated staff can work in care homes in england, unless they're medically exempt. the rule applies to most people entering care homes including agency workers, tradespeople and occupational therapists. let's speak to robin hall, secretary for the hampshire care association.
do you have any sense of the number of staff who have for whatever reason not yet had a vaccine? taste reason not yet had a vaccine? we believe it is _ reason not yet had a vaccine? - believe it is a few percent are quite a few of those people chose to leave their employees before tomorrow's deadlines we not expecting a huge number to leave tonight. we also have a temporary medical exemption scheme running because the official process for medical exemption wasn't ready in time and that will run until christmas eve so there may be some more stack he moved out of the sector then. more stack he moved out of the sector then-— more stack he moved out of the sector then. you are losing staff. do ou sector then. you are losing staff. do you nonetheless _ sector then. you are losing staff. do you nonetheless understand l sector then. you are losing staff. i do you nonetheless understand the rule or do you have problems with the implementation? i rule or do you have problems with the implementation?— the implementation? i think the rinci - le the implementation? i think the principle is _ the implementation? i think the principle is something _ the implementation? i think the principle is something that i the implementation? i think the principle is something that we l the implementation? i think the l principle is something that we all understand. i think everyone involved in running a social care service does appreciate how important vaccination is. the way
that the new rules have been implemented has been a little challenging. i think we welcome the fact this is going to extend to the nhs but it would probably have been better to introduce it across the board at the same time. that better to introduce it across the board at the same time.- board at the same time. that is interesting- _ board at the same time. that is interesting. i— board at the same time. that is interesting. i mean, _ board at the same time. that is interesting. i mean, as - board at the same time. that is interesting. i mean, as we i board at the same time. that is i interesting. i mean, as we approach the darker winter months, what level of concern do you have that the fact you've clearly lost some staff? we know it is a sector never overburdened with staff of the best of times so what do managers of care home say to you they are doing or trying to do? i home say to you they are doing or trying to do?— home say to you they are doing or trying to do? i think managers are t in: trying to do? i think managers are trying everything _ trying to do? i think managers are trying everything and, _ trying to do? i think managers are trying everything and, as - trying to do? i think managers are trying everything and, as you i trying to do? i think managers are trying everything and, as you say, j trying everything and, as you say, the situation has been very difficult for a long time. we have had a recruitment problem in social care since before covid—19. we are not a coherent body like the nhs. we don't have a... that everybody knows and we are perhaps not very good at
communicating all the good things about working in social care —— we don't have a brand that everybody knows. it can be a fantastic place to work in, a care home, especially now in the run—up to christmas but thatis now in the run—up to christmas but that is not a perception that a lot of people have and there is no getting away from the fact that the workers is hard on the other is a long and in social so we came into covid—19 with probably a lot of people have and there is no getting away from the fact that the work is hard and the others along and in social so we came into covid—19 with probably 10% vacancy will wait. that is 100, 120,000 empty posts. we may only be losing a handful of percentage points in people over the vaccination issue but we really can't afford to lose anybody, especially, as you say, going into the winter. especially, as you say, going into the winter-— especially, as you say, going into the winter. , ., �* , the winter. yes and i'm interested that ou the winter. yes and i'm interested that you mention _ the winter. yes and i'm interested that you mention the _ the winter. yes and i'm interested that you mention the idea - the winter. yes and i'm interested that you mention the idea that i the winter. yes and i'm interestedj that you mention the idea that the image, if you like that the sector has and i wonder, again, as we go into winter, what are your thoughts about how that could or should be changed? what sort of messaging would you like to hear, perhaps, from the government for? , health and social care should be joined from the government for? , health and social care should bejoined up and social care should bejoined up and we know all the problems and
that have been laid bare by covid—19. what are your thoughts about what you need to do and those staff who do stick it out and do enjoy it? staff who do stick it out and do en'o it? �* ., ., ., ., enjoy it? and there are a lot of --eole enjoy it? and there are a lot of people in _ enjoy it? and there are a lot of people in that _ enjoy it? and there are a lot of people in that category. i enjoy it? and there are a lot of people in that category. we i people in that category. we shouldn't forget them and one of perhaps the unintended consequences of mandatory vaccination is it doesn't necessarily send a positive message to those people who are working in care homes, have had their vaccinations, are doing everything that they think they possibly can and yet there is a feeling that they are being told what to do by somebody higher up here is a very long way away from the coal face. that is not necessarily helpful. i think i can't see better than you have, really. we need the whole sector, the profession, to be held in high esteem that covid—19 did shine a spotlight on our problems but it also, i think, spotlight on our problems but it also, ithink, work spotlight on our problems but it also, i think, work a lot of communities up to how many care
homes there are, how many people work in them, and we really would like to see some of that positive feeling and momentum continued and that really does need everybody. it needs our local authorities, our nhs colleagues and central government to throw themselves behind, behind doing that. and, unfortunately, it does need money as well. there is an nhs body that estimated that it needs about £1.2 billion to bring our staff up to the level of pay and terms and conditions that they would get if they worked in the same role in the nhs and i know it is difficult to find the money but we really do need to walk down towards that. ~ . ., ., really do need to walk down towards that. ~ .., ., .., ., really do need to walk down towards that. ~ ., ., ., ~ ., that. medical to medical to talk to ou. that. medical to medical to talk to you- thank _ that. medical to medical to talk to you- thank you — that. medical to medical to talk to you. thank you very _ that. medical to medical to talk to you. thank you very much - that. medical to medical to talk to you. thank you very much for i that. medical to medical to talk to j you. thank you very much for your time. robin hull, secretary for the hampshire care association. thank you. a woman has been arrested after a dog attack in caerphilly — in which a 10—year—old boy died.
the 28—year—old — who is from caerphilly — was questioned on suspicion of being in charge of a dog dangerously out of control causing injury resulting in death, before being released on bail. police were called to an address on monday following reports of a dog attack. 10—year—old jack lis, died at the scene. two men volunteered to be spoken to by police in relation to the same offence and were also later released. poland says migrants had made repeated attempts to enter the country from belarus overnight. there is no independent verification of how many of them are there, but warsaw says 1800 migrants are currently in centres across the country. poland blames belarus of stoking up a crisis by encouraging many more to make their way across theirjoint [and border. belarus's foreign minister has accused the eu of "provoking" a stand—off after it threatened to impose yet more sanctions on minsk over the crisis. this morning, the russian and belarus foreign ministers met in moscow. the russian foreign minister sergei lavrov accused the west of an "anti—belarusian campaign"
the husband of iranian detainee, nazanin zaghari—ratcliffe two diamond bracelets owned by the last queen of france, marie antoinette, have sold for nearly 6 million pounds at auction in switzerland. (oov)the bracelets, which each contain more than 100 diamonds, were sent away for safe—keeping before marie antoinette was executed in the french revolution, and remained within herfamily for more than 200 years. it was the first time they've been auctioned, with the winning bidder paying double the estimated price. the former football commentator gerald sinstadt has died, aged 91. the bbc and itv broadcaster became one of the game's most recognisable and respected voices in the 1970s and 80s. he covered four world cups for itv
before working on the olympics for the bbc.his former bbc producer, andrew clements, paid tribute to him as "a craftsman, a very good commentator "and just a lovely man." the uk's supreme court has rejected a claim that sought billions of pounds in damages from google over allegedly illegal tracking of millions of iphones. thejudge said that the claimant failed to prove damage had been caused to individuals by the data collection. but he did not rule out the possibility of future mass—action lawsuits if damages could be calculated. the ruling is a major blow for privacy campaigners, who hoped they would be able use the courts to force google to pay up to £3 billion in compensation. prince harry says he warned twitter bosses about potential political unrest in the us — just a day before the capitol riots in january. he was speaking at a tech conference about the impact of social media.
mark lobel reports. my twitter, my notifications, have blown up. in his latest salvo against hate on social media, the former army captain, now misinformation warrior, joined a 33 minute live session for wired's rewired tech conference entitled 'the internet lying machine', where it emerged, referring to these angry riots in the us capital onjanuary the 6th, he is also, it seems, somewhat of a soothsayer. have you ever had a chance to present your case to the leaders of these company, mark zuckerberg, jack dorsey? no, not directly, not personally. jack and i were e—mailing each other prior to january the 6th, where i warned him that his platform was allowing a coup to be staged. that e—mail was sent the day before, then it happened.
that e—mail was sent the day before, then it happened and i haven't heard from him since. in march, jack dorsey, the twitter chief executive, admitted his platform had played a role in the storming of the us capital, but added, "it's not just about the technological systems that we use." prince harry warned a small group of accounts is causing a large amount of chaos online, sullying the internet for future generations by filling it with hatred, division and lies. misinformation is a global humanitarian crisis. as you quite rightly pointed out, i've felt it personally over the years, and i'm now watching it happen globally, affecting everyone, notjust america, literally everyone around the world. and i guess the scariest part about it is you don't need to be online to be affected by this. leading to this personal swipe on somewhat well—trodden ground for harry at sections of the uk price. they've successfully turned fact—based news into opinion—based gossip with devastating consequences for the country. as for his solution to the problem, he is not recommending everyone
takes leave from social media, as he and meghan have done, conceding it's far too addictive for that. but, instead, he says it's for big companies and advertisers to kick out the troublesome few whose hate and lies are then spread far and wide. mark lobel, bbc news. now it's time for a look at the weather with louise that takes us into a look at the weather and here is nick miller! we know there has been some sunshine across parts of southern scotland. actually today, though, where you have seen some sunshine you have got a reasonably chilly night. not a cold night but fairly chilly. we have had that in southern scotland, northern most counties of northern england, few clear spells in northern ireland as well. this thick cloud across much of wales and england has been producing light rain and drizzle, really murky day and that will continue on and off
overnight with some areas of fog and poor visibility and also an area of rain pushing down across northern scotland but as suggested earlier the lower temperatures will be in northern ireland, northernmost counties of northern england, few clear spells in northern ireland as well. this thick cloud across much of wales and england has been producing light rain and drizzle, really murky day and that will continue on and off overnight with some areas of fog and poor visibility and also an area of rain pushing down across northern scotland but as suggested earlier the lower temperatures will be in northern ireland, northern counties in northern england, southern scotland and when it plays late in the fun scotland as well. may be close to freezing in the very coldest for us with touch of ground floor, crossed. this area of rain tomorrow will just fizzle out as a clears back north are amazed at drizzly across wales and england in central and eastern parts of england brighten up a little bit in the afternoon. west wales north—west england sings outbreaks of rain that a move to northern ireland in the afternoon and on towards western parts of scotland, too, and there will be a freshening be a light breeze in the west. these are averages for beads with gusts approaching 40 miles an hour on some western coast in the evening. another push of my reckoning and is well and i know temperatures have taken a step back across much of northern ireland and scotland and that will change as we go through the day tomorrow and then tomorrow night, well, the next weather system is moving in and there are various
bands of rain showers around that but a large part of the eastern side of england will stay largely dry with a much milder night to come particularly where it is chilly tonight across the uk going into friday morning but the low pressure in control on friday, very close to wasn't so various bands of rain and showers moving through and on the southern flank of the low pressure system it will be a windy day across much of wales and england on friday. not much of in the way of sunny spells are not much of in the way of wales inching towards parts of east and south—east of england with heavy burst of heavy showers into southern scotland and northern england on friday but it is a blustery day with just a chance of seeing some vain at some stage of the day and it is very mild again. stay smiles on the weekend and we have got high pressure building and by then. what does that mean? a lot of dry weather again over the weekend, lighter winds, loss of cloud, though. sunshine at a premium this weekend even though it is going to be mild. that is your forecast.
at six — borisjohnson urges world leaders to pull out all the stops and reach a deal to tackle climate change with just 48 hours to go at cop26. the prime minister returned to glasgow today — he said a deal was in sight but negotiations were getting tough with a huge amount still left to do. so now is the time for everyone to come together and show the determination needed to power on through the blockages. we will be asking if the deal will go far enough to keep global temperatures in check. also tonight. the conservative mp sir geoffrey cox denies any wrongdoing over his second job, as the prime minister says if mps break the rules they must be punished. from tomorrow anyone working in a care home in england must now be double vaccinated.
