ben folkes took england to the brink, just six behind, but nine wickets down when he fell. it came down to james anderson and abreast to the wicketkeeper, all—out, one run behind. only once before has a test match been decided by that margin. the series shared. from england's captain, not despair. perspective. even though we are on the losing side of it, just a great game to be part of. i think when you have the mindset in terms of, you know, what we want to go and do and try and give ourselves the best opportunity to win games all the time, you have to lose games to appreciate how good it is to actually win games. new zealand have previously dealt with defeat with great dignity. who would begrudge them this victory? and, universally, nothing sells a sport like excitement. joe wilson, bbc news.

when i first started boxing it was different, there weren't any girls in the gym apart from me and you do feel some of these things, you don't feel some of these things, you don't feel as included, i was lucky enough to have a gym that i did feel inclusive in, but for a lot of my friends it wasn't the same for them. there were turned away, they weren't encouraged to go to the gym, so this is about being able to get a lot more women involved and enjoying it, it having fun with it, because exercise is fun. that's all the sport for now. you can find more on all those stories on the bbc sport website. that's bbc.co.uk/sport. more now on the prime minister's visit to belfast, where rishi sunak has called for mps to back his new deal on post—brexit trading arrangements for northern ireland. the agreement, called the �*windsor framework�*, removes most checks on goods which are sent from britain and are meant only for northern ireland. it also creates new powers
for stormont to reject changes to eu regulations. speaking a little earlier whilst on a visit to a factory in county antrim, the prime minister outline why he believed changes to the northern ireland protocol were necessary. here's some of what he had to say. if we get this right, if we get this framework implemented, if we get the executive back up and running here, northern ireland is in the unbelievably special position, unique position in the entire world, european continent in having privileged access, notjust to the uk home market, which is the fifth biggest in the world, but also the european union single market. nobody else has that, no one. only you guys, only here. and that is the price, i can tell you, when i go around the world talking to businesses, they know that, they say
thatis businesses, they know that, they say that is interesting, if you guys get this sorted, then we want to invest in northern ireland. because nowhere else does that exist. it's the world's most exciting economic zone. and this is at the top of the executive state's in tray, which is to work, become... to figure out how to work, become... to figure out how to get people to come and invest to take advantage of northern ireland's very special position and they are queueing up to do so, particularly from the us, they keep talking to us with ideas. they want to bring investment. that is what we need more of and that is the price, that is the potential. remember, the republic of ireland doesn't have that, this is specialfor republic of ireland doesn't have that, this is special for northern ireland. it's really important, very powerfulfor ireland. it's really important, very powerful for companies. yes, ireland. it's really important, very powerfulfor companies. yes, there powerful for companies. yes, there was powerfulfor companies. yes, there

the infra structure where we live, but it is ultimately about a skills and education and jobs, those are the crystal does make those of the things if thing gets right... it's about getting a young person to feel if i get the well—planned skills, litigation i need, here at home and then i'm going to get thejob i want to get. and that is a mix of things, to get. and that is a mix of things, to make sure our apprenticeships is amazing, universities are amazing, our schools are amazing and then that we have an environment for businesses to invest in all sorts of industries and that is the future for northern ireland, and i think you guys know it, there are world leading infrastructures, notjust the business we are standing in, and life sciences, a pharmaceuticals financial services, invites many factoring, i could go on and on and on, these are notjust things that are good for the uk, these are things that are good globally, that is how high quality what we have got here is, so wejust is how high quality what we have got here is, so we just need to build

was last seen in barcelona four months ago. rachel stonehouse reports. levi davis is a 24—year—old with talent. a professional rugby player turned musician who appeared on celebrity x factor in 2019 and later went on to sign a record deal. but he went missing on the 29th october last year. levi had been staying with a friend in ibiza for a couple of weeks when he left suddenly and travelled to barcelona by ferry. he sent his mum, julie, this video on his way. less than 12 hours later, he disappeared. i think it was after the boat when i tried to phone him. the phone had gone dead. initially it was sort of, well, maybe his battery's ran out. and of course, levi, sometimes it's like, oh, well, he's forgotten his charger or something. so ijust kind of thought, all right, we'll give him, you know, a day, because i knew that that boat trip was eight hours.
and then, of course, a day or two went by and i thought, right, ok, perhaps he'sjust gone away for a couple of days. we know when levi arrived into the city, he went to this bar and was spotted leaving on their cctv at around 10:30pm. hey, mate, wasjust ringing to show you some sights. yeah, so this was when he was at the old irish pub. mike was the last friend or family member to hearfrom levi. we're four months on now from when he went missing. how are you feeling about the situation? i kind of compartmentalise it, put it in my little box and keep it away, because otherwise i'd be thinking about it 21w. you still send levi messages, don't you? tell me the sorts of messages you send and why you do it. a lot of the time it's just... it's kind of seasonal things.
so like christmas came and went and obviously we hadn't heard anything from him. so it was sending that christmas message. and sometimes it's just getting things off my own chest and making sure, like, i know and he, if he sees them, knows that i was thinking about him no matter what. levi's passport was found at the port in the middle of november. and then a few weeks ago, this video emerged online. hello. my name is levi davis, and my life is in danger. he originally posted it on instagram a few days before his disappearance, but later deleted it. it's unsettling to watch and says he's being blackmailed. it's led to a lot of headlines and speculation on social media. you then start to wonder, well, how much of it is true? but your mind could just go off into so many different angles and areas that actually it then becomes, well, it doesn't help, it doesn't help your mind. you know, you have to kind of keep saying to yourself, well, just stick to the facts.
the local police in barcelona have told the bbc that while levi's case is not a criminal investigation, what they call disturbing issues have emerged that they say have no logical explanation. so it's being handled by a specialist criminal division. mavis davis, my grandma, what a name, first rock star. famous in the church. she'll been rocking out to this one. while levi remains missing, julie watches his social media videos, hoping he'll come home. rachel stonehouse with that report. you can listen to file on 4's �*looking for levi' investigation tonight on radio 4 at 8pm or on the bbc sounds app. the headlines on bbc news...
a double rapist who changed gender while waiting to stand trial has been jailed for eight years. the prime minister is in belfast as he tries to win support for his new deal on post—brexit trading arrangements for northern ireland. a couple who disappeared with their newborn baby more than seven weeks ago have been arrested in brighton, but their child is still missing. time to take a look at some of the stories making headlines around the uk. patients from wales will be the first in the uk to be offered a pioneering new blood test, which can detect bowel cancer early on. survivors need regular colonoscopies to check they remain cancer free, but delays caused by the covid pandemic mean many have had to wait far longer than recommended. now, scientists at swansea university have developed a blood test, which can lead to a quicker
diagnosis and faster treatment. aimee thomas reports. paul scanlan was training for the london marathon when he realised something wasn't right. he was experiencing chronic back pain and noticed blood in his stools. after months of putting off going to see his doctor, he finally decided to make an appointment. and after further tests, he was diagnosed with stage three bowel cancer. he now lives with a stoma after having the cancer removed. after his experience, he wants to urge others having symptoms to ask for a test as soon as possible and uses tick tock to raise awareness. i've had messages that people have gone and got checked on the back of listening to me on the radio or seeing one of my posts.
they've gone and checked. cancer is awful. cancer is scary and no doubts about it. but there's life. there is life after. if you catch it early enough, there's life... there's life after cancer. paul is required to go for regular colonoscopies for the next five years to check the cancer hasn't returned. bowel cancer is the second biggest cancer killer here in wales. currently, 4,000 people are on the surveillance list waiting for a colonoscopy in swansea alone. now it's hoped that a new blood test developed here in swansea university will help to tackle those waiting lists. the hope is that that tests will effectively develop so that in time people can avoid having unnecessary invasive colonoscopy, avoid the wait for those colonoscopies and have that reassurance sooner rather than later. the welsh government has set out a national endoscopy programme to prioritise people waiting and says their training more clinicians to be able to perform endoscopy.
200 patients from swansea, who have waited the longest for a colonoscopy will be the first to get invited for the blood test this summer. after that, it's hoped the test will be rolled out across wales, helping thousands of people each year receive a quicker diagnosis. amy thomas reporting there. choosing between your bills or your baby. it's a dilemma facing struggling parents as the costs of formula milk and food rise. according to a baby bank in grimsby, some parents are even rationing nappies to save money. jo makel reports from grimsby. we've all seen the weekly shop getting more expensive, but the costs for new parents have reportedly soared. nappies and baby milk have risen faster than inflation, and shops are even using security tags to stop theft. sophie and ben's children are aged between four and four months.
they're sometimes facing hard choices. what comes first, the bills all the children? but then one has to give and i will not let my children go without. they say they're lucky to have a baby bank in grimsby where they can get milk, nappies and clothes for free. it is a massive lifeline, isn't it? sometimes, especially when you are struggling and you know that you can literallyjust message leanne and bless her. you don't feel like you're being judged or anything like a lot of parents they think won't ask for help. because you do feel like you've been judged so many times. with the way the cost of living is.. everything has gone up. it's even people who are working are struggling. and i feel like sometimes in families it becomes a case of the ganieva feed themselves. i feed the children and i don't think it should be like that. it's noticeable listening - to people how much they try and make the nappies last, -
where before we used to change them from the minute the baby soiled them. | now it's a matter of leaving because they can't afford i to keep doing them. since opening last year, they now have regular users. but that also means donations are a welcome sight. wow. thank you. i've got things all the way from newborn, all the way up to two years. we don't need it any more, so move it on to someone that needs it. - and ben and sophie say other families shouldn't be embarrassed to seek help. in the beginning, it is daunting. you're just like, oh my god, i'm having to, like sit there and come to like food bank or baby bank and stuff like that. it is daunting. you're like, oh my god, what are people going to look at me for? like, you've just got to bite the bullet and... just if you don't come to these places and you're struggling, it's going to affect onto your kids. graffiti artists from around the uk have gathered in wolverhampton following the launch of a new book, celebrating the street art of the 1980s. images for the book, which is called old so cool, were brought together by local artist steven o'hara. amyjohnston went along
to find out more. from vandalism to fine art, graffiti has been called many things over the years, and the artists painting at this legal graffiti wall in wolverhampton have heard it all. i originally first started dabbling in the graffiti world back in 1985 and i think back then obviously the world was a different place and artwork on walls wasn't really greatly accepted wheras now today, it's part of today's culture and it really is. steven big in the eighties street scene organised this graffiti jam through his facebook group old so cool, which has over 19,000 members. he's been working with a publisher and graffiti fan to produce the first uk book showcasing the graffiti of the eighties. most of it's in people's memories now, so i think this is bringing a lot of it back to life. so lots of people, even graffiti, even people that weren't graffiti artists just looking at it and thinking about where they used to live and going, oh yeah,
i kind of remember those pieces on those walls when i was 15, 16 years old. back in the eighties, a graffiti jam like this would have been impossible as artists would have had to work in the dead of night to avoid being caught. but today artists are here from around the uk, many of which who submitted work to the book to celebrate the art form and to give these walls a fresh coat of paint. it's brilliant. i was just saying to someone that every time i flick through that book, it always freaks me out when i see my bedroom wall from 1989 in there because nobody ever saw that. the book has been excellent. i thought it was only going to be a small thing, but it's not. it's a really big thing. it's got so many photos and everything and i thought, this is brilliant. due to the popularity of the book, they're printing another 500 copies which are available to order online. time for a look at the weather. it
time for a look at the weather. if you time for a look at the weather. you been time for a look at the weather. if you been blessed with sunny spells today, many it has been a fairly grey day, some splashes of rain around, but what we have not had, scenes like this, believe it or not, this was majorca tuesday and wednesday have brought some outbreaks of rain, some heavy snow in the hills as well which has been mounting up quite readily. this area of low pressure, stonejuliet continues to churn away, will eventually bring some welcome rain across northern italy. but there is across northern italy. but there is a no pressure is in the mediterranean is because we have high pressure in charge. fairly stubborn area of high pressure pushing areas of low pressure well away from us. as you've seen over the last couple of days, a lot of cloud has been trapped underneath that, summer breaks and will continue to be so into this evening, central western scotland around some in the far south—west, a lot of cloud elsewhere, quite a breeze as well, cloud thick enough as mavericks of rain, which is towards the south—east corner into the evening. temperatures, 6—8.
