those boosters in of getting those boosters in particular, and that is making a huge difference. according to some of the surveys i've seen, 90% of the patients in i c are people who are not boosted. think about that. think about the risk you are running with your own health you fail to get a booster. ~ ., , ., , ., booster. where have you been for the last ten days? — booster. where have you been for the last ten days? i've _ booster. where have you been for the last ten days? i've been _ booster. where have you been for the last ten days? i've been in _ booster. where have you been for the last ten days? i've been in this - last ten days? i've been in this count . last ten days? i've been in this country. where _ last ten days? i've been in this country. where do _ last ten days? i've been in this country. where do you - last ten days? i've been in this country. where do you think? | last ten days? i've been in this - country. where do you think? thank you. country. where do you think? thank ou. �* ., , country. where do you think? thank ou. ., ., ., ., you. boris johnson at a vaccination clinic this morning. _ you. boris johnson at a vaccination clinic this morning. we _ you. boris johnson at a vaccination clinic this morning. we want - you. boris johnson at a vaccination clinic this morning. we want to - clinic this morning. we want to bring you something to let you know something about the covid testing government website if you have been trying to book a test or get a home test delivered but at the moment on the website it says there are no tests available for pretty much all
10:31 am
of england. there are no home tests available for the general public or for essential workers. if you look down the testing sites where you can go and get a test booked, it says there are none available for all of england or northern ireland. it says there are a few available in scotland and all available in wales. this does happen and i think the advice is to keep checking. just to give you a heads up if you're trying to get a test booked at the moment, none available but keep checking. now it's time for a look at the weather with carol kirkwood. hello again. the weather over the next few days and nights is going to be unseasonably mild. after a cold start in the north we've got this band of rain continuing to push steadily north. behind it, it will brighten up, though there will still be areas of cloud and one or two showers, and the wind will pick up as well. temperatures ranging from seven to possibly 17 degrees somewhere in the south—east. the average at this time of year is roughly about 6—8 north to south.
10:32 am
this evening the rain clears away from the northern isles. we've got two new bands of rain coming in from the waist and once again a lot of cloud and quite breezy. overnight lows, though, 7—13. they'd be pretty good temperatures by day at this time of year. tomorrow we start off with all this cloud. once again we've got some rain crossing scotland. the rain in the south—west pepping up as it moves northwards. brighter skies in eastern areas and temperatures tomorrow between nine and again the possibility of 17 degrees. hello, this is bbc news: the headlines: prime minister borisjohnson defends the uk government's decision not to impose further covid restrictions in england before the new year we can see the data about the
10:33 am
relative mildness of omicron and we can also see the very clear effect of getting those vaccines, getting those booster in particular. the scottish parliament is recalled amid record numbers of covid infections. the us and several european countries including france, italy and portugal record their highest daily rises in covid infections since the pandemic began. one of the last pro—democracy media outlets in hong kong is shutting down and dismissing all its staff after it was raided by the police. england and manchester city footballer raheem sterling says society must never let its guard down over racism in the game now on bbc news, we see how lives have been dramatically altered in iraq and the gulf by global warming.

i'm already hot. i'm not even outside.
10:46 am
normally i like to start my days off with a dog walk. come on, lily. we need to make it super early so that my little fur baby can walk on the ground without burning himself. are your paws ok? i think it was around 56 this year, as supposedly hot as it got, but it feels like 60! yeah, it's hot! did you get dehydrated? it sucks the life out of you. that's it, you're like this... and then that's it, you're just like this. let's go home, it's out. i'm done, girl. today i have a really special guest. this is... hi, guys. it's hin! i think in my line of work, when i'm doing a lot of content creation, i can see when the heat does affect me. when you do have the best light on a day to be able to film, it is absolutely too
10:47 am
hot to do it outside. so, since this is a compilation episode, i'm going to make sure i bring coffee to everyone because we don't have to go out for coffee. the hours between 11:00 in the morning and 4:00 in the afternoon are no—go times of being outdoors.
10:48 am
the heat impacts your life in ways that you don't necessarily anticipate. on a day like today, it makes things that are supposed to be a minute long and hour long. yes. yeah, let's sit down, my love. do you want the ac? one of the things that i was not anticipating when i did finally have children was now i had this tiny little being that needed to be protected from the sun. alright, let's get going. and because i had rear—facing car seats, the ac unit actually never touched his car seat, so we would turn the car on
10:49 am
30 minutes prior to an outing, put the ice packs into his car seat to cool it down before i could place him in it, and we had a tube that would extend from the front ac into the backjust to make sure that we could get him enough air conditioning in a rear—facing car seat. and that is the reality for all parents here. push the door! push, push, push. do you want to try the mango with strawberry? i would spend my entire adult life living in kuwait, but i did have a bit of time when i got to live in the states and i go out on my bike, and go outside and make tree houses, and i guess i did want that for my children. i think there is a common misconception that you are able to split your time between different countries if you are kuwaiti.
10:50 am
that has never been my reality. that the assumption you are just able to leave is not possible for everybody. this is the hottest i have ever seen kuwait. it is getting to the point where it is unbearable and i think everything about living here is hostile sometimes. you like swimming inside or outside more? inside, why do you like inside? do your feet hurt when you walk on the grass outside? yeah. it concerns me that the only life that my children have known has been in scorching heat. they want to be kids and go to the playground. and they will beg to go all day, and then we will finally break and take them, and it will be so unbearable that they will be begging to go back home.

the absolute best invention in the world. the only way to stop it. like, you can't even feel it now. you are cooling your little section but it is heating up outside. we are in an awful cycle of trying to cool ourselves down but heating up the country as we try to go on. we have
10:55 am
got tired of the idea of climate change. we have got to stop using straws to see the turtles and turn out the lights in the bathroom to save energy, but the big picture is what it actually means to live here, to raise children here, and i sometimes worry, it is one of my largest fears, my children are so young right now and this is probably the best days of their life in terms of weather. if you do not live here and you are not affected by it every day, you forget it is happening, but it is and it is terrifying. if we are looking into the future, i do not see how much longer we can consider to wait inhabitable.
10:56 am
10:57 am
hello again. over the next few days and nights the temperature is going to be unseasonably mild, something we will certainly notice. what we have at the moment is this band of rain pushing steadily northwards and eastwards. behind it, it will brighten up, but they will still be areas of cloud with a few showers. the other thing is the wind is also going to pick up and it's coming from a very mild direction from the south—west, so across the board, our temperatures are above average. 7 to 16, possibly 17 degrees. and in the next few days, it's possible that somewhere in england, especially the south—eastern quarter, could hit 17 celsius, way above average for this stage in december, which, incidentally, is six to eight, north to south. now, as we head through the evening and overnight, there goes ourfirst band of rain, another one goes in across the south—west and another one comes in across the north west. there will be a lot of cloud around, it will still be breezy, and these are our overnight lows,
10:58 am
8 to 14, maybe 15 degrees. these temperatures would be pretty good as daytime maximums, not night—time minimums. so, on thursday, we have our two bands of rain, the one in eastern scotland peters out, the one in the south—west peps up and brings some heavier rain across wales and north—west england. there will be some brighter skies in eastern scotland, but still a lot of cloud with some drizzle across the far south—east. once again, we've got the temperature range, nine to 16, possibly 17 degrees somewhere in the south—eastern corner. now, into new year's eve, again, it's going to be exceptionally mild. there will still be some patchy rain in the forecast, so as we go through the morning, during new year's eve, we've got some overnight rain to clear, it will be heavy rain as well. eventually it will clear south—east scotland and north—east england. quite a lot of cloud and rain. brighter skies in the south and our maximum temperatures on new year's eve likely to be about seven to 16 degrees. as we head towards the midnight hour or new year's eve, you can see there will be a fair bit
10:59 am
of cloud around, bits of rain coming in from the west and then as we get into the brand—new year, we pick up this rain at midnight and run it all the way through the day. it pushes northwards and then another band comes in hot on its heels. and it will be quite windy as well on saturday for many of us, potential gales across the north west of scotland. temperatures, ten to about 16 degrees, still above average.
11:00 am
this these are the latest headlines in the uk and around the world. borisjohnson defends the government's decision not to impose further covid restrictions in england before the new year — and says as many as 90% of those seriously ill are not fully vaccinated. the overwhelming majority of people who are currently ending up in intensive care in our hospitals are people who will not boosted. but the scottish parliament is being recalled to address the record numbers of covid infections in the country. the us and several european countries including france, italy and portugal record their highest daily rises in covid infections since the pandemic began. soaring energy bills, rising taxes and stagnant wages

will leave millions of families struggling in 2022 — according to a leading think tank.
