1:31 pm
here's sarah keith lucas. a mixed picture, some cloud a grey skies, but other areas see sunshine and that is summed up perfectly by this weather watcher. blue sky overhead and not far away, the strata cumulus cloud and that can be seen nicely from above in the satellite image. quite a lot of cloud for england and wales, but we have the stripe of sunshine in lincolnshire towards bedfordshire and into dorset. and for much of scotland and northern ireland, some sunnier skies after this morning's cloud and rain has cleared to the cell. we still have a very weak lingering weather front, so that is producing a few spots of rain across northern england and wales, you can see it here. but fizzling away and it will be high pressure that winds out and keeps things largely dry and settled for many areas for the rest of today and the next few days for many of us. drizzly rain for northern ireland, wales, mainly over the higher ground, spots into the far south—west of england. to the
1:32 pm
south and east, fairly cloudy. except a stripe of sunshine through lincolnshire towards dorset. temperatures up to 13 degrees or so for the warmer spots. scotland and northern ireland remaining largely dry with clear skies into the end of the day. scattered blustery showers overnight to the north west of scotland, but most places dry. when we do see clear skies, particularly towards the east, temperatures down into mid single figures, so quite a cool start tuesday, a few mist and fog patches possible this thing. tuesday's weather still dominated by high pressure to the south, but we have a weather front moving in to scotland and northern ireland as well. during the day, that brings rain and strengthening winds to western scotland, later on to northern ireland, england and wales stay predominantly dry through the day on tuesday. limited sunshine, most places fairly grey, but some brighter skies and temperatures similar to today. between ten to 30 degrees so still mild for this time of year. then we see a window of
1:33 pm
slightly different weather, a different air mass moving in into wednesday. the blue—collar is returning to the map. briefly, a little bit colder through the middle part of the week. a fresh feeling day, but more sunshine on wednesday. so sunny spells, a few showers moving in to the far north—west. most of us staying dry, lighter winds further south and temperatures perhaps down a notch in recent days, but still reaching 12 degrees or so in the sunshine on wednesday. and after that brief slightly fresh interlude, not critically exciting towards the end of the week, we have mild air, fairly cloudy and most places predominantly dry. a reminder of our top story... police declare yesterday's explosion in a taxi at liverpool women's hospital a terrorist incident. that's all from the bbc news at one, so it's goodbye from me. and on bbc one, we nowjoin the bbc�*s news teams where you are.
1:34 pm
good afternoon, it's 1:30pm and here's your latest sports news. the new chair of yorkshire county cricket club, lord patel, says he welcomes adil rashid's courage — after he became the third player to back up teammate azeem rafiq's claim that michael vaughan made a racist comment whilst they were all playing at yorkshire. rafiq, seen here, has alleged vaughan told him and a group of asian players in 2009 "there are too many of you lot, we need to do something about it." michael vaughan says he "completely and categorically denies the allegation." rafiq, rashid and former pakistan bowler rana naved—ul—hasan claim they heard it whilst a fourth player, ajmal shahzad, has previously said he can't remember. in a statement rashid says, "i can confirm azeem rafiq's recollection of michael vaughan�*s comments to a group of us asian players." rashid went on to say he's
1:35 pm
encouraged by the fact a parliamentary committee seems to be trying to improve the situation, whether that's holding people accountable or getting changes made at an institutional level. that committee will hear from azeem rafiq tomorrow. next to football — after being sacked as aston villa manager little over a week ago, dean smith is back in the premier league — he's the new man in charge at norwich city, replacing daniel farke who was sacked just a day before smith lost his job at villa. smith has called it a whirlwind seven days. his first game in charge will be at home to southampton on saturday. but how excited are norwich fans? i've been speaking to jack reeve from the talk norwich city podcast. yeah, really excited about dean smith. he comes with a proven track record and that is really exciting for norwich city funds.
1:36 pm
the work he has done as walsall, brentford and most recently aston villa, he has left the club in a better position than when he took over. that is all you can ask from the coach. this is a man our sporting director is aware of. he tried to recruit him when he was at huddersfield but it didn't work. he has finally got his man now. he brings fresh ideas. this is an exciting time for norwich city. lewis hamilton's called it the greatest weekend of his life, and that's no surprise when you consider what he did in sao paulo. by winning yesterday's grand prix he's blown the formula one title race wide open. penalised twice for tecnical problems, hamilton was forced to drop down the grid, starting from tenth, but he battled back brilliantly to pass his title rival and championship leader max verstappen who he now trails by 1a points with three races remaining. any grand prix when is pretty special, even for lewis who has 101 of them. to win in the way he did on track, overtaking withjust a to win in the way he did on track, overtaking with just a few laps to go in a very hard—fought race in the
1:37 pm
context of a weekend strewn with a degree of adversity and the context of a wider season that has been nip and tuck all the way, this one ranks all the way up there in the things i remember of. my mind is fairly adult. —addled. and england should secure their place at next year's world cup finals in qatar later when they face san marino.. they need just a point from tonight's game to qualify as group winners. harry kane will be keen to start — he is just nine goals short of wayne rooney's all time england goalscoring record. scotland are also in action tonight against denmark, with a place in the play offs already guaranteed. northern ireland play too, at home to the european champions italy. there's more on the quallifiers on the bbcsport website.
1:38 pm
including on why gareth bale won't start for wales against belgium tomorrow and reaction to dean smith's appointment as norwich manager. but that is all your sport for now. breaking news around the scandal on children mother and baby homes in northern ireland, the northern ireland executive have confirmed there will be an investigation and for survivors of institutions in northern ireland.— for survivors of institutions in northern ireland. ., ':: :::: northern ireland. more than 10,500 women and — northern ireland. more than 10,500 women and girls _ northern ireland. more than 10,500 women and girls pass _ northern ireland. more than 10,500 women and girls pass through - northern ireland. more than 10,500 women and girls pass through the l women and girls pass through the mother and baby homes and more than 3000 spent time in the magdalen laundries. the last one closed in 1990. women gave evidence they were detained against their will and used as unpaid labourand detained against their will and used as unpaid labour and had to give up their babies for adoption. the northern ireland executive has confirmed there will be an enquiry into the mother and baby home scandal to find out how on earth young woman who happened to be pregnant and unmarried were treated like that.
1:39 pm
an explosion in a taxi outside liverpool women's hospital yesterday has been declared a terrorist incident. a fourth man has been arrested under the terrorism act. the passenger in the vehicle died in the blast and the driver has been hailed as a hero for managing to lock the doors before escaping. a little earlier, merseyside police gave an update on their investigations. russ jackson, head of counter terrorism north west, explained how events unfolded. yesterday, shortly before 11am, a local taxi driver picked up a fare in a rutland avenue area of liverpool. the fare, a man, had asked to be taken to liverpool women's hospital which was about ten minutes away. as the taxi approach the drop—off point at the hospital, an explosion occurred from within the car. this quickly engulfed it in flames. remarkably, the taxi driver escaped from the cab. he has been treated for his
1:40 pm
injuries and has now been released from hospital. emergency services quickly attended the scene, and merseyside fire and _ rescue extinguished the flames. it quickly became apparent then that the passenger remained in the emergency services quickly attended the scene, and merseyside fire and _ rescue extinguished the flames. it quickly became apparent then that the passenger remained in the vehicle and was deceased. army ordnance disposal officers had examined the scene at the hospital and made the area safe. following discussions at army ordnance disposal we are able to confirm that this is to be treated as the _ ignition of an explosive device. 0ur inquiries also indicate that it was brought into the cab by the passenger. we believe we know the identity of the passenger but we cannot confirm it at this time. 0ur enquiries have led us to two addresses. the first was sutcliffe street in the kensington area of
1:41 pm
liverpool. at this location, three men aged 21, 26, and 29 were arrested yesterday under section 41 of the terrorism act. a short while ago, again in the kensington area, a further man aged 20 was arrested under section 41 of the terrorism act. they will be interviewed later today by counterterrorism detectives. the sutcliffe street address was searched overnight and further searches will take place today. a second address has also been searched at rutland avenue in sefton park. at this location, significant items have been found. further searches will be necessary today, and potentially into the _ coming days. six months after a damning report into the bbc�*s handling of princess diana's 1995 parorama interview, her brother says he believes there's "still more to come out". speaking exclusively to bbc breakfast, earl spencer said "big questions" remain, after former bbcjournalist martin bashir was found to have used "deceitful behaviour" to help secure her consent. he made the comments while showing sally nugent around the althorp estate, which is the subject of a new documentary.
1:42 pm
i've known forever that there was a lost village in the park here. that block around the tree, that's just not natural. there's always something new to find with this house and the park, there's so much history contained in these walls and we've just scraped the surface with this one. the archaeologists have uncovered evidence of an iron age roundhouse and now, where they thought there might be a buried road, they're finding signs
1:43 pm
of ancient earthworks. it's very historic. i reckon all of england was like this with so much underneath it. but so much has been developed or farmed that it's been lost. but because this park is unspoiled, it's still here. is it right that the crown wanted to use this as a location? they did, they applied, they wanted to shoot here. but i don't really do that stuff. so, yeah, these are all sort of members of the family here. down the bottom here is more generals and all that sort of thing. but it used to be an open courtyard this, in the tudor times. and are you constantly repairing it? yes, there's a lot going on. we are sitting here on this magnificent staircase, surrounded by lots of pairs of eyes looking at us.
1:44 pm
how aware of all of these people are you? i took over running this place 30 years ago when i was 27. and i remember when i first walked through here as the sort of nominal owner, as it were, i really was nervous. you look at these people, they've lived here many hundreds of years ago and i did feel, my goodness, they'rejudging how i'm going to play this hand. you were really young! i was really young but when you're 27 you don't know you are really young. there's a picture of you at the top of the staircase, what are you holding in your hand? so there's a painting of diana up there, which was painted by an american artist called nelson shanks and he came to view it in situ here. and then he said he'd like to do one of me and link the two together. so that's actually the notes i made when writing the eulogy for diana's funeral. it's several months now since the bbc was found to have been woefully inadequate in its handling of the interview that martin bashir did with your late sister, the princess of wales, at the time. now you've had some time to reflect on that and think about what happened, how do you feel about that finding? actually, lord dyson did a very good job. his brief was tiny, it was to look at a very specific area and there's still so much more
1:45 pm
to look at in the broader terms of who was responsible for what and how did it come to this? did documents get hidden from view and all sorts of really important stuff which is yet to come out. so i see the lord dyson report as a very welcome development, but there's still a very long way to go with this. how far is there to go, what more can be done? i've been doing quite a lot behind the scenes. but it's clear to me that there are certain people who were in the bbc who have behaved in a way that is truly abysmal stuff which is yet to come out. so i see the lord dyson report as a very welcome development, but there's still a very long way to go with this. how far is there to go, what more can be done? i've been doing quite a lot behind the scenes. but it's clear to me that there are certain people who were in the bbc who have behaved in a way that is truly abysmal and possibly criminal. how far can you take that now yourself, personally? that's the question and i've got people looking at that and we'll see. but it's not going to end now, i'm not saying that as some ugly threat, itjust can't stop here because there's still more to come out. when you look back on your childhood
1:46 pm
in this house, what are the things that stay in your mind now? this staircase, of course it's very grand, but for the children in my family it's where you can get a lot of speed up on a tray, coming down on it like a toboggan, really. no, i look in this hallway and i actually look forward to christmas. so in a month or so we will put up a christmas tree that's been grown especially on the estate each year. we do a very traditional english christmas here and it just looks right. the headlines on bbc news: police declare yesterday's explosion in a taxi at liverpool women's hospital a terrorist incident. a fourth man will be questioned by counter—terrorism officers.
1:47 pm
meanwhile the taxi driver who escaped has been named locally as david perry — he's been described as a hero and praised by the prime minister the bbc�*s told the government will scrap plans for a high speed train line between the east midlands and leeds. now it's time for across the uk. the director of an amateur dramatics group has been jailed for a total of 16 years for a range of sex offences against young women and girls. between 2013 and 2017, chris lynch, who 5 38 from kettering, lured victims to private castings and took advantage of them. his conviction has prompted calls for greater regulation of auditions. jon ironmonger reports. he was that close i could feel his breath on my neck, and he groped me.
1:48 pm
15 years old, safety is in a room alone auditioning for a man who is 30. we have changed her name. he stood there and touched me and i had tears streaming down my face, i was shaking. she yearned for an acting role with chris lynch's theatre company, but she which he ran from his mothers house in kettering. he turned round and said that was really good. you're a natural. i haven't acted at all since. i couldn't sleep because of the nightmares. every time that i closed my eyes i would see his face. five years later, sophie still lives with ptsd but lynch was undaunted. even under investigation, he found new victims at modelling shoots and cajoled them to engage in humiliating role—play. lynch was a habitual sex offender. he preyed on girls who dreamed
1:49 pm
of becoming actors. he talked them into private auditions and in that acutely vulnerable position, he abused or assaulted them. at this church in 2016, lynch raped a teenager under the pretext of casting a film about sex trafficking. he has never admitted what happened at his audition. had to try and persuade him to put my homework in late, and that's when all the kissing started. his hands were on my bum and he tried to get round to the front. after groping taylor, which is not her real name, lynch had sent messages reported to be from a colleague called ellie. he sent me this list of different faces. first it was a normal parent kiss, and then it got worse down to sexual intercourse and stuff like that. so he was pushing for you to have sexual intercourse?
1:50 pm
trying to get me, yeah. a 15—year—old girl. yeah. how do you feel about this man now, looking back on what happened? i just feel sorry for anyone else he's been around. it relied upon vulnerable young people coming forward and giving their accounts and having to tell the _ court what happened, and it is down to their bravery in speaking out that we have got the convictions and then the sentence today. lynch was able to set up a theatre group and try out actors without any scrutiny or oversight. the head of the body which licences child performers said the system of safeguarding auditions was not fit for purpose. workers whose employers are signed up to the voluntary real living wage are getting a pay rise today. it's going up a0 pence to £9.90 an hour — almost a pound an hour more than the mandatory living wage for people over 23 years old. it's being seen as good news for low—paid workers but businesses are finding it's good
1:51 pm
for productivity too asjohn ayres reports from one factory in plymouth. now whenever there's an increase in either the national minimum wage or the real living wage, great news for workers obviously, but it also means companies have to be able to pay for it and that puts up their costs, but there are benefits to it as well. nigel brown is the manager of union glass centres. you've been signed up to the real living wage since 2014. why was that? we signed up in 2014 because at the end of the day we want to invest in our staff. investing in our staff, they need to have a decent wage and the minimum wage we feel is very difficult for people. giving them the living wage means they don't have to worry so much about the basic costs in life — utility bills, food shopping etc. good for them but you see a benefit as well, don't you? yes, the concentration
1:52 pm
levels improve. with that, productivity tends to go up and, in general, everything increases. well, in terms of the costs to the businesses, do you find as well that if you put up the real living wage for staff that are lowest in the pay structure you have to put it up for everyone else, as well? in general, we do, yes, we do. we signed up for the living wage. every year that is reviewed and whatever that review is we abide by. we are happy to do that. we are committed to the cause. and, in general, everybody else's wages go up at our annual review, which is in the new year. nigel, thank you very much. so the real living wage is going up today by 40p. so come on a 40—hour week, that's worth £16 a week to a worker, so significant for those who are on that pay level at the moment. amazing drumming weatherman 0wine wyn evans has smashed a children in need record. after hundreds of songs, multiple costume changes and countless pep talks, 0wain has raised more than £3 million so far —

1:56 pm
if you still want to donate, you can. you can go to the children in need website. now it's time for a look at the weather with sarah keith lucas. we have had a little rain this morning across some parts of the uk, particularly scotland and northern england. that rain tending to fizzle out in most places, still cloudy out there, this is the picture in oxford earlier but it will brighten up in the north—west behind this morning's rain. over the next few days this theme of quite mild weather with quite a bit of cloud and things looking largely dry because high pressure is dominating our weather. an area of high pressure towards the south—west and another towards the east. weather fronts trying to push in from the
1:57 pm
north—west but not making many inroads. this evening the weak remnants of upfront, drizzle for northern england and wales and the west as well. clear skies for scotland and northern ireland, but a few showers through this evening and overnight. some clear spells for southern and eastern areas but a few spots of drizzle here and there across england and wales. overnight under clearer skies some places getting down to three degrees four degrees but most of us looking at a frost—free clear spells in the south and east and there could be the odd patch of mist and fog. tomorrow cloud moving in from the west will bring wetter and windier weather to scotland and northern island. england and wales should stay largely dry — perhaps a shower for east anglia and the south east — sunny spells behind the weaker weather front. across the far north of england during the afternoon. temperatures ten degrees to 13 degrees and some sunshine for likes of
1:58 pm
belfast in the afternoon. as that clears to the east a different air mass is with us so a brief window of colder weather through the day on wednesday so a fresher feel to the weather but more sunshine compared to monday and tuesday. still a few showers working in on the breezier conditions for north and west of scotland and northern ireland. eastern scotland and england and wales should stay dry on wednesday with light winds — not as mild as recent days but fresher than lately. the milder air returns by the end of the week so thursday and friday largely dry and cloudy and mild for this stage in november.
