10:51 pm
away from what we've requested and see reflected as the domestic abuse issues or domestic issues, what we are telling the world then is that not addressing sexual assault but the respect on two and seriousness it requires because it's difficult is ok. and it's not. it'sjust something that we can't let happen and we can't walk away from that. two goals from mo salah helped liverpool beat everton 4—1 to pile the pressure on rafa benitez in his first merseyside derby against his former club. liverpool captainjordan henderson's first goal in 18 derbies got the match off to the perfect start for the visitors. mo salah added to that soon after, sending hoards of home fans to the exits with less than 20 minutes gone. leaving early they missed demari grey give everton a little hope. but that was extinguished in the second half thanks to a second from salah and diogojota rounding the rout off.

ahead against brighton after just five minutes. neal maupay�*s spectacular strike in the 89th minute earned brighton a point at london stadium, moving them up to seventh. leicester city had to come from behind twice against southampton. james maddison's goal saw the match end two all at st mary's but it was enough to move the foxes up to eighth, although they've played more games than three teams below them. there were four games in the scottish premiership too, rangers beating hibernian 1—0 in the pick of the games. they left it late though, ryan porteous giving away a penalty with five minutes remaining, leaving kemar roofe to step up and coolly roll the ball into the back of the net. rangers go seven points clear of celtic in second. elsewhere aberdeen were 2—0 winners over livingston, dundee beat stjohnstone by a goal to nil while st. mirren and ross county played out a goalless draw. johanna konta has said she's very grateful for her career in tennis after announcing her retirement
10:54 pm
from the sport. the 30 year old won four titles on the wta tour and holds the record for the longest time as women's british number one. konta reached the semi—finals at wimbledon in 2017, eventually losing to simona halep. she moved to the position of world number four that year — the highest ranking by a british woman since virginia wade in 1978. however, konta has struggled with her fitness. an abdominal injury, then contracting covid, meant she missed both wimbledon and the olympics this year. she said whatever she does next, it will involve tennis. i definitely see myself staying in this sport to a certain extent. i don't know to what capacity, but i love the sport and the sport has given so much to me, so i would definitely love to share that with other people. scottish swimmer hannah miley has also announced her retirement. miley won world, european and commonwealth titles, only olympic medals eluding her, she represented great britain at three olympic games.

the quarter finals of the uk snooker championship in york. the seven—time champion saw off thailand's noppon saeng—kham, winning four straight frames to take the match 6—3, finishing with a century break and he'll face kyren wilson for a place in the last four. for that and everything else you can head to the bbc website. but that is all your support for now. hello. the cold air is back. thursday gets off to a chilly start with a wide spread frost and temperatures won't crawl up too far for the day despite a lot of sunshine on offer. the cold air has come chasing down through these isobars all the way from close to the arctic circle, sweeping its way right to south across the uk. overnight starting to plunge down into the continent through thursday. we are all in the arctic air and we will all feel it thanks to a cold northerly breeze. where we've seen some showers
10:57 pm
overnight there will be a risk of ice to start us off on thursday. as i said, a widespread frost. further showers across eastern scotland, eastern counties of england through the day, a few as well across the west coast of wales particularly i think through pembrookshire pushing down through devon and cornwall, eastern scotland. perhaps clearing come the afternoon. but it's cold in the sunshine. highs ofjust three or 4. sunshine a bit milkier for northern art went through the afternoon. that is because this weather system will be starting to work its way in. as it runs into the cold air there could be some snow for a time but it will tend to turn back to reign as the air coming in behind this band of rain is relatively mild. actually, temperatures at the end of friday nights higher than those we will see through thursday daytime. and on into friday daytime and we will have some rain around for southern and eastern england to start the day, we will get some brightness for scotland and northern ireland, they'll be a few showers on and off here.
10:58 pm
just some question to the south of the uk weather this rain could push in through friday afternoon. we will certainly keep a lot of cloud generally across england and wales but temperatures perhaps 11, 12 . it's certainly milder than thursday. to the north, five, six, seven. for the weekend the chill returns. perhaps not quite as cold as thursday but once again will pick up a northwesterly breeze. for saturday i think that's going to bring in some quite plentiful showers across northern island heading into north wales down into the midlands. temperatures, six or 7 but it will feel cooler in the breeze. sunday is a very similar story but i think we can erase some of the showers from our picture. still some for weston exposures of wales, and a northerly breeze. so really adding to the chillier feel.
