boy is hungry bottom for good health and being kept from their families to avoid infections that lead to divers now have to republish tanks placed along the route before they can continue and it's a six hour journey from where the boys were trapped to the entrance of the cave the team spent nine days deep in the cave before they were found perched on an elevator shaft. and if we're now joined peter dennis he's the chairman of the british cave rescue council welcome to you general this is obviously a very dangerous operation as we have the divers are back in the cave system give us a sense of what makes this rescue operation so difficult and so risky. well we're encouraged and somewhat relieved at the success yesterday to get the flow boys out which does give us some hope that we will be able to have success with the remaining eight voice their coach and we have to remember there are also some of the china a.v.c.
12:03 pm
all divers accompanying them has been with them all this time. it is a tricky and dangerous operation it will be meticulously plums and you mentioned the neat saw huge stocks also acid and just throughout the route well that's been carried out by a very wide range of international divers a lot of european support divers there to ensure that there are fully recharged cylinders if not only require a lot of have to carry out a dive but if you can imagine the accession of maneuvering one of these children through some of the many quite can strip tit obstacles then the extra air is needed because you're just working that much harder so that was a key part of the plan is to integrate this restocking of our. now where did garrison at the time must be vital for the success of such an operation how do
12:04 pm
you ensure that in a deep and flooded cave well one of the early calls for equipment was underground cave radios these are blue frequency right your sets and they can be taken into the changed they need a run out of cable each side of them to form an antenna and an acrylic set on the surface can receive voice messages so one of those was certainly taken into the shelf where the voice for resting and that is being used to help coordinate the timing of the quit not coming in if there's any necessity for how you speak things up it means we don't have to wait for one of the divers to emerge to pass the message out which could be hours rather than just a few minutes no rain and where they're out with the big guys given all the obstacles you mentioned earlier on the divers fighting against time. well they are obviously we're all concerned about the weather forecast and the onset of
12:05 pm
monsoon we've already had a few thunderstorms fortunately localized and a short duration. if there's high water level because of rain it will just make everything so much harder for instance the visibility will be perhaps even worse than it currently is in the fully submerged sections new deputy silt all settlement will be washed into the cave and will be suspended in the water so that will make things harder we've got the problem of the slow rate of those river sections where there's a little bit of a space that imagine trying to make your way along even just walking if you're all chesty or neck deep in water so the sections will be much harder and then finally currently it says dry as it's been recorded since sort of assets from a specific one to fifth of june when divers try to find the voice the third chamber
12:06 pm
that's often quoted currently most of the route to the search chamber can be walked and so that's really speeding things up in the what's the boys have been dropped by the divers the divers can return to their mission and the time. personnel can then help the boys out from that the entrance is that could easily go back to swimming and even diving with heavy walked right into the chairman of the british koretz care council thank you very much for sharing your expertise with us and families at the table for fourteen members and how desperately waiting to find out if their firms are among those who have been rescued meanwhile the rest of the nation is closely tracking every step of the ongoing rescue operation and praying for its success. their ordeal has gripped the country the success of sunday's operation has fueled hope for the remaining nineteen members
12:07 pm
trapped in the cave. those who can't help directly send prayers. i'm watching the news every day. i want to read about them as if they are my own kids. i hope they come out safely. and keeping up to date on their situation from afar i want to send more support and i pray for them all to be safe and to come out to soon as possible. it's an agonizing wait for relatives of the group this family heard on t.v. that their boy was supposedly one of the four rescued on sunday. i was wondering if he'd be all right i told myself he will be all right i knew but i didn't say it out loud i was worrying too but i kept my feelings quiet has been a while since i've laughed. but authorities are not confirming the identities
12:08 pm
of those freed out of respect for the families whose sons are still trapped. one official says the boys are also being kept apart from their loved ones due to the risk of infections. for their families the nerve racking wait goes on information is scarce and it could take several more days before the operation is complete. and in just the past few minutes it's been confirmed that a fifth boy has been pulled out from the cave of course we'll keep an eye on that story and keep bringing you the latest developments as they come in let me now bring you up to date with some other stories making news around the world the japanese government says that least a hundred and twelve people are dead after days of heavy rain and mudslides risk years have been digging through the mud and rubble racing to find survivors tens of thousands of emergency workers have been deployed to help more than two million people were ordered to evacuate their homes. two journalists from me and ma have
12:09 pm
been charged with breaking the country's strict secrecy laws for their reporting on the rohingya crisis they were arrested in december in a sting operation critics have slammed the case as an assault on press freedom saying it's aimed at stifling reporting on the government's crackdown in communities. to the u.k. now where prime minister to resign may has appointed a new brigs it minister following the resignation of david davis forty four year old euro skeptic dominic robb will now be the most senior official in charge of negotiating the u.k.'s exit from the european union this latest brags the turmoil comes just two days off the terrorism is announcement that our government had finally reached consensus on a divorce deal with the e.u. . the british cabinet gathered last week at the prime minister's country retreat outside london top of the agenda ending the infighting between hardline brick city
12:10 pm
years and rival pro europe ministers mission accomplished set to resume a on friday the cabinet has agreed all clips of position on the future of our negotiations with you and offer you a proposal will create a new free trade area it was a consensus which only just lost it over the weekend. breaks it minister david davis was very much a hardliner davis clashed frequently and publicly with his european union counterpart michel barnier they despite putting a positive spin on their strained relations. to unite says. the devices. so undoubtedly be challenging times ahead of us in the negotiations we will do all we can deliver a deal that works in the best interests of citizens explaining why he quit david
12:11 pm
davis says he fears to resume a's approach will leave the u.k. in a weak negotiating position with less than nine months to go until britain leaves the e.u. this high profile ministerial departure will be seen as a significant setback. joining me now for more on the developments our correspondents bigot mosque in london and from brussels bob the reason that we start with you bigot what is david davis saying about his resume sent us more about the person who's being appointed to replace him. dominic rob the housing minister has been appointed to replace david davies he's somebody like david davis who's also convinced breck city as somebody who has argued for greg securing become pain crucially in contrast to david davies he's somebody who supports to reason may's check us announcement from friday and he thinks it's the way the best way forward now we probably don't have to wait for long before the
12:12 pm
brick city is would say that this is a betrayal in their course because it is very very controversial what the prime minister has announced david davis has said that he still supports terrorism a does not want to see her fall but that might be a wish really watching the developments in london and seeing if there are more resignations or not it is definitely a crucial day in a crucial week which reason may and barbara in brussels are these latest developments and turmoil in the u.k. prime minister tourism is government being viewed there. there is me of course some research because everybody here had hoped to check his announcement the piece might hold at least for a little bit longer but now it's not quite clear whether they're both further resignations whether we should she will survive this whole new turn of events brussels just can't do anything but sit and wait with regards to dominic rather of
12:13 pm
course the e.u. will negotiate with whomever london sends and there might be a certain hope that because rob is a lawyer by profession that me he might have a bit more sense for the legal necessities of this whole divorce process which is so you could be painful and drawn out because david davis was very patient of all about those details he was not a details man as everybody over said about him so there might be a tiny hope that things will drop might go ahead a bit more smoothly however at the moment we don't do anything we don't know anything and we can't do anything in brussels and they could do that they was very quick to replace davis davis dominic roberts how much of a setback is this for the prime minister and could there be more resignations as barbara indicated people in brussels fear. it is a huge setback and i think it's really the fallout from tourism is biggest mistake which she made a while ago when she triggered article fifty before really setting out any
12:14 pm
direction on brics it so now we've got this huge time pressure and people will be thinking long and hard whether it's a good idea to replace the reason may to replace effectively the whole leadership of the country just before we have a crucial summit coming up in brussels in october and just before article fifty runs out in march before britain really is set to leave the e.u. there is intense speculation we haven't heard anything from boris johnson he has been challenge by fellow m.p.'s to come forward and throw his head in the ring but nothing as happened also swell a brave woman who's a junior. with david davies speculation that she might resign i think more resignations can easily follow today or in the next days right big mass in london barbara in brussels thank you very much for sharing your perspectives with us saying the u.k. and prime minister is a may say she's a poor and shocked by the death of
