scotland, the have been, a few in scotland, the pennines, and further west through england. the odd heavy one has fallen in a couple of spots but they aren't a sign of things to come. this weatherfront, a aren't a sign of things to come. this weather front, a weak one tomorrow, will give damp weather into scotland and northern england but it is this area of high pressure thatis but it is this area of high pressure that is significant for the rest of the week. whenever you see that you know there is dry, settled weather on the way. showers and cloud today but that's all melting away this evening. the week weather front will deliver a little patchy rain towards northern and eastern scotland as the night goes on. it'll be cold enough for a touch of frost in the coldest parts of eastern england going into the morning. over the next several nights, gardeners, pay attention to the local frost forecast near you. that week weather front takes patchy rain further south through scotland, into north—east england, and yorkshire, brightens up in northern scotland, a brighter day in northern ireland. here through wales, east anglia, some cloud building, slight chance of a shower, most will stay dry, this is where the highest
6:31 pm
temperatures will be, it'll be cold in eastern scotland and north—east england, especially in the cloudier, damp zones. any showers fade away into tomorrow night. wednesday morning may bring a touch of frost into scotland and northern england into scotland and northern england in a few spots, cloud initially in the east, cloud building elsewhere. you cannot see any rain out of that because there probably will not be any bar the odd shower, and it is turning breezy over southern areas. a chance of seeing some rain in northern ireland on saturday. not guaranteed just yet. we will keep you updated on that. if you take a look at this, you know that if it is rain that you want you aren't going to get it and it isn't that warm. that's all from the bbc news at six, so it's goodbye from me and on bbc one we nowjoin the bbc�*s news teams where you are.

6:33 pm
hello and welcome to sportsday — i'm gavin ramjaun. a new independent regulator for football is set to give fans more power and control. we'll tell you what it all means. real madrid in their sights, we hearfrom pep guardiola — as his manchester city side prepare for their champions league semifinal. and celebrations for stuart bingham, but he's given a run for his money by kyren wilson, at the world snooker championship. also coming up in the programme... what's going on at mercedes in formula one. car struggles leave them languishing in the standings. can they turn things around.
6:34 pm
hello, and welcome along to sportsday here on bbc news. supporters will be given more say in the running of their football clubs — after the government said it will establish an independent regulator for the men's game, following a fan led review. also among the widespread changes suggested from the report by former sports minister tracey crouch, are stronger tests for owners and directors of clubs, aswell tougher financial rules. crouch said the reforms are much needed. i think this is a massive step forward for i think this is a massive step forward for reform i think this is a massive step forward for reform in i think this is a massive step forward for reform in en-lish forward for reform in english football. i think today, you know, we should celebrate the fact that the government have accepted or support all ten of the strategic recommendations that the fan lead review put forward. i think it shows that they recognise that there is a need for change and that change has to happen. obviously, you know, like many football fans, i always get a bit nervous when there are things to be played for, and i would've liked to of seen the implementation
6:35 pm
sooner. at the same time, these are massively complex issues. i think football fans will recognise that it is right for government to really look at the detail of some of these reforms. i think fans are desperate for change. we certainly got that when fans are giving evidence to us. it's important to communities as much at his it is to the individual. i hope people will come together now, embrace these reforms, embrace the recommendations and help the government deliver them as soon as possible. government deliver them as soon as ossible. ., .,, possible. one of those recommendations - possible. one of those | recommendations could see the shadow avoids consisting of club supporters that would allow fans have more say in the decision—making of their scenes. nestor mcgregor joined me earlier to explain that it means their supporters. it’s means their supporters. it's important — means their supporters. it's important to _ means their supporters. it's important to say _ means their supporters. it�*s important to say why the government thinks football needs an independent regulator. you look at teams like berry, macclesfield town, chester city, all went bust. derby are currently in trouble with financial issues, then
6:36 pm
league and change the entire english football structure as well, so government says football needs protecting, and at times, that is from itself. this independent regulator they speak of will have the power to make sure your teams don't spend beyond their means and also have the power to sanction teams should they break other rules as well. another key is an owner and directors test will be tougher, not just background checks on owners finances but also matters of integrity. fans are a big part of this, they have more of us say in the running of the club. the premier league or perhaps the biggest opposition, like you say, they say they recognise and accept the need for change, but don't think an independent regulator is the way to go. setting under their guidance and the fa, english football is as popular and lucrative as it's always been. whiteman for the fans as well, they are heavy they are involved, but they actually would like to be taken, wouldn't they? our best football clubs or businesses. they are community assets. think about it. if a pub or
6:37 pm
post office shuts down in a town or city, you open up another one, for book club is very different. you don't just go book club is very different. you don'tjust go and support another team. fans say they must remain at the heart of these debates. that's why a golden share or a shadow board is being suggested. it will give them a set and things like moving to a new stadium, kicked colour, logos, things that seem trivial to some but are really important to people who love football and wanted their heritage factor back to remain. we all know these football clubs are vital assets to the local communities and that has not been enough protection for them. we've seen exploitation, clubs that have been exploited, grounds being sold. ., , ., ., have been exploited, grounds being sold. . , . ., ., ., sold. fans get a vote on whether or not to change _ sold. fans get a vote on whether or not to change colours, _ sold. fans get a vote on whether or not to change colours, etc. - sold. fans get a vote on whether or not to change colours, etc. i - sold. fans get a vote on whether or not to change colours, etc. i think i not to change colours, etc. i think enabling fans to understand clearly what the rationale is and come to the view, fans will
6:38 pm
be there for a lifetime, owners come and go. timing is the big part of this. those in favour of celebrating, but notjust yet, think about it like a football match. 3—0 up, but you don't know in the final whistle,. untilthe up, but you don't know in the final whistle,. until the government brings these in, for a lot of people, it isjust brings these in, for a lot of people, it is just premises. brings these in, for a lot of people, it isjust premises. a brings these in, for a lot of people, it is just premises. a lot of them want things to change quickly as possible so that those who have the means don't alter or change tactics to make some of this a relevant, perhaps, when it does, and. one club who has suffered from mismanagement is oldham athletic. on saturday, they were relegated from league two, dropping into non—league, and becoming the first team in history to have played in the premier league, to then drop out of the football league altogether. joe lynskey looks back on their demise over the years. this was the primary league in 1994. oldham athletic beat chelsea for the

second time 28 years later, when club are champions of europe. now the others in non—league. on saturday, oldham where relegated from the two with the fans on the page. angry at how the club's run, but it wasn't always like this. oldham spends three years in the top flight and where primary league founder members. the lancashire town prepared to take on the neighbours. it's in expletive back in the 90s, they weren't that great, but it coincided with the scene, so anyone in that era will remember them being part of that great time for the area, football wise, music wise culturally. i area, football wise, music wise culturally-— area, football wise, music wise culturall . ~ . . culturally. i think at that time, we were probably _ culturally. i think at that time, we were probably everybody's - culturally. i think at that time, we were probably everybody's second favourite — were probably everybody's second favourite football club. the manager said it _ favourite football club. the manager said it was _ favourite football club. the manager said it was a pinch me season, and it was _ said it was a pinch me season, and it was he — said it was a pinch me season, and it was. he couldn't believe that you are there. — it was. he couldn't believe that you are there, but you wear there and you had _ are there, but you wear there and you had to — are there, but you wear there and you had to deal with it. we

she wanted me to carry on upper body training, swinging on bars and stuff. your legs still have to come up and ijust, i do remember that being absolutely excruciating. poppy says this footage of her at nine years old when kincaid started coaching her was the last time she truly loved gymnastics. many injuries followed, but her most disturbing came at the age of 12, when she fell from the bars in splits and tore her perinium. i went to liz, obviously i had blood dripping down my leg, she then took me into the office and gave me sanitary pads to effectively, like, mop up the blood, i guess, and sent me back into the gym. poppy says her mum wasn't called, but when she collected her hours later, she realised something was badly wrong. poppy ended up spending

the night in hospital. my mum had been told i'd just started menstrating and i didn't, i told my mum i had some sort of injury or accident, so she took a look and she was horrified by what...she said it was worse than childbirth. liz kincaid categorically denies all of the claims made in this piece and says, "the health, well—being and safety both poppy and sophie are now part of a civil claim against british gymnastics. they have a clear message for the governing body. you need to take these investigations a lot more seriously and speed up the process because i see no change. she is still very capable of walking into a gym and coaching other gymnasts, and right now, i really don't

mercedes should be right up there challenging for another championship, yet after eight in a row, it seems like the airlock has ended. it's because of the huge regulation change that came into play at the beginning of the season. it meant basically every team had to go back to the drawing board and come up with a new car. one that mercedes has come up with just isn't working properly and they don't know how to unlock its potential which is even more infuriating for the team. like nicholas hamilton himself, reeling himself out this year, is it too early to be doing that? as got any of pushing later on? it will be difficult for mercedes are for lewis hamilton and really mount a challenge. already, they are quite far behind everybody else in the standings, but it is more to do with the car's potential, and at the moment, doesn't look like there's any quickfix. moment, doesn't look like there's any quickfix— any quickfix. you look at the d namic any quickfix. you look at the dynamic on _ any quickfix. you look at the dynamic on that _ any quickfix. you look at the dynamic on that team i any quickfix. you look at the dynamic on that team at i any quickfix. you look at the dynamic on that team at the j any quickfix. you look at the - dynamic on that team at the moment. wrestle ahead of hamilton, and the rest of the pack i guess would be sensing a bit of blood in the way that the championship is going this
