a really being on the front. this is a really fascinating story because we all agreed the princes in the tower who believed to have been murdered by richard iii. this is says absolutely not. it sounds like something out of the da vinci code. one of the research is on the project said at the end of the story, what they're arguing is that richard is the elder of the two princes who disappeared in 1483 of the two princes who disappeared in m83 was of a story that's been more than 500 years in the making. they are saying actually, he lived out his life in charge of the local deer park under the namejohn evans. so he wasn't killed all but he was living in a place called cold rich on the property owned by his half—brother. fascinating historical story. it's obviously a claim but they've done a lot of research here. they've been following the documents and this is what they are claiming. i'm sure will see other historians responding that tomorrow. george,

liverpool have lost forjust the second time in the premier league this season. giving manchester city the chance to go nine points clear tomorrow. they were beaten i—nil at leicester who won the game despite having an injury—hit squad. mo salah had the chance to give liverpool the lead but kasper schmeichel saved the penalty and then watched on as the rebound hit the bar. after spurning more opportunities at nil—nil. leicester substitute ademola lookman rounded off a sweeping move to get the only goal of the game. liverpool failed to score for the first time in 35 games and stay six points off the top. definitely the best one of our season. i think we showed that spirit and mentality and i'm pretty sure the headlines were written already before the game. i said to the players, the beauty of this game is that you write your own headlines. and this was just for us to do that today.

mark noble added a third from the penalty spot before bowen played the perfect pass for nikola vlasic to make it 4—1 — his first for west ham. to be talked about is chance of the top four. we have a long way to go. we have to maintain it, we have to get our standards back. our performances are still not close to where they should be, but hopefully we can get ready and be the good teams and get better in the second half. west ham have gone above spurs who were held to a i—all draw by ten man southampton at st mary's. james ward prowse tends to get his goals from set pieces but this one came in open play to give southampton the lead. harry kane equalised with a penalty awarded for a foul by mohamed salisu who was sent off. spurs dominated the second half
and had two goals disallowed, so it finished all square. it is not easy to play after only 1m hours. for sure, we fely a bit of fatigue and may be our decision wasn't so right. but i think that at the end of the game, we could win, we didn't do this, and we are to be disappointed. crystal palace's second win in four games has taken them into the top ten, a place the team they beat can only dream of. odsonne edouard had given palace the lead against norwich from a penalty, before two further goals before half time from jean—philippe mateta and jeffrey schlupp gave them a comfortable win. 3—nil it finished, leaving norwich bottom of the league. and there has been even more disruption to the festive football schedule everton's home premier league game with newcastle has been postponed
because of coronavirus cases and injuries in the visiting side's camp. the game was due to take place on thursday but the premier league were satisfied that newcastle couldn't field the requisite number of players. it's the 16th top flight match to be postponed in recent days while in the football league only m games are still on over the next two days. dominic thiem has pulled out of january's australian open. the 2020 finalist has not played sincejune because of a wrist injury. the issue meant the austrian could not defend the us open title he won last year. but naomi osaka has landed in melbourne to prepare for the defence of her australian open title. the japanese four—time grand slam winner hasn't played since losing in the third round of the us open and taking a break from the sport. the australian open begins in just under three weeks. premiership rugby are investigating allegations against leicester regarding historical image rights payments. tigers have confirmed they've met
with representatives of the league to discuss the potential breach of salary cap rules, which the times reports relates to links between the club and a now defunct company, worldwide image management. leicester are top of the premiership with ten wins from ten. 2018 champion rob cross has reached the last 16 of the pdc world darts — sealing his win over daryl gurney with a 170 checkout. the finish of treble 20 treble 20 bullseye is a rarity in any context but cross hit them with what proved to be his final three darts of a tight third round match. it went to a deciding set with the 11th seed winning 4—3. anotherformer champion also went through in dramatic fashion. 2020 winner peter wright was two sets down to australia's damon heta. .. but switched back to an old set
of darts and immediately won four in a row to make the last 16 earlier, three—time champion michael van gerwen was forced to withdraw from the tournament after testing positive for covid—19. he was due to play chris dobey, who will get a bye into the last 16. fellow dutch players raymond van barneveld and vincent van der voort have also tested positive for coronavirus. and that's all the sport for now. hello there ingrid wells on tuesday have a lot of clout and certainly some right around. skies like these were fairly commonplace. but others call it was different, but saturday we had a number of weather watcher pictures sent to as showing these fantastic halos, son pillars and also upper tangent arcs. these phenomena are all caused by ice crystals high in the earths atmosphere reflecting and refracting sunlight. that was then but moving on to the story we've got exceptionally mild air that's going to be pushing in behind his warm
front as we go through the next few days without will see temperatures pushing up to near record levels across parts of england was up because he hides read 17 celsius while the english record temperature is 17.7. the average at this time of year around eight celsius was up these are pretty crazy temperatures for december. that milder air arrives early in the day across southern wales in southwest england with temperatures quickly getting into double figures, coldness and frost in northern scotland. again, will have dense patches of fog here. through wednesday this band of heavy rain will push its way northward and eastward. but it's behind this rain band that we see that really mild air extending in. the highest temperatures will be across england and parts of wells with piles of potentially reaching highs of 16 maybe 17 degrees is up it will also be turning milder further north, maybe 17 degrees is up it will also be turning milderfurther north, 11 in glasgow, 12 in belfast both miles or december. we've got more of that exceptionally mild air to come on thursday for the suit with these
fairly brisk south—westerly winds for the more heavy rain for wales into northern ireland later in the day. again it's those temperatures that take centre stage for that 16 or 17 degrees possible. we are reallyjust or 17 degrees possible. we are really just talking about temperatures getting close to the english record because the all—time you take two uk december record says it 18.7 in scotland. i don't think we will quite get there. two scenarios for thursday night, one that we have a band of rain and some fairly brisk winds but a second scenario develops quite a strong area of low pressure. that would bring a spell of much winter weather and heavy rain into scotland. if the second scenario happens and there are a lot of models are do this, it would mean that we still could have rain and strong winds affecting scotland for the first part of friday morning which is new year's eve. otherwise, there'll be lots of cloud across western areas with some distant hill fog patches and drizzle for that we continue with that very mild theme with temperatures reaching those several levels, 16
maybe a 17 and the very warmest areas. forthe maybe a 17 and the very warmest areas. for the weekend we start off with new year's day and we start of 2022 where 2021 left off, that is still with these exceptionally mild south—westerly winds bringing that crazy 16 or 17 celsius air. across western areas there will be clouds around outbreaks of light rain and drizzle particularly on the coastal hills heading deeper into the new year low pressure it looks set to move in and we may well see at least for a time the winds turning more to eight northwesterly kind of direction for the and with that temperatures will probably come back a little bit close to normal. particularly across northern areas of the country was at wares ingrid wells is temperature still coming down for 10 degrees in london and cardiff is still well above average for the time of year. badger latest weather. bye for now.
