procedure the letter invites the u.k. government to send its observations within a month and besides this the commission will continue to work hard towards a full and timely implementation of the withdrawal agreement we stand by our commitments thank you. and we are joined by our correspondents bob a visit in brussels and london let's start with you that's a bit of a bombshell isn't it how did the british government react. well the british government did have time to prepare for this because there was a deadline at the end of september and they knew that this was likely going to come and they are standing by for now the spokesman a spokesman for the british government has said that this is a legal safety net in order to create maintain stability in northern ireland and for the moment it seems that the british government does not really want to back
1:04 pm
down however we also know there's a e.u. summit coming up in just the middle of october and this u.k. and markets which is what he was offended by also has some time to go through the house of commons and the house of lords so there is still some time to actually reach a solution with the european union. barbara let's go to you what does that mean for the ongoing briggs's negotiations. negotiations are going on. they are not going well from what we hear the distances between the 2 sides have not been bridged so far there is still a huge gap particularly was regard to aid for industry. that is to be paid to companies that need to be propped up that is something that the e.u. wants to see regulated and the u.k. side declines that there is still
1:05 pm
a get on fisheries and some other issues that are very important so no real progress or far from what we hear so for the e.u. that means they will continue to negotiate whatever happens because they have sworn to themselves we are not going to be the ones who will walk away from these negotiations because they're just waiting for the blame game from london and that case so negotiations go on but what is also clear on the other hand is that if the internal market bill is not somehow was drawn to wait till the end of the year it trade agreement even if it can still be struck between the 2 sides cannot come into force. because this internal market bill is that all part of taxes from. well it may well be had of course we don't know but we know that the u.k. government somehow still negotiating with the european union and we know that
1:06 pm
recently they have come forward with a compromise on fisheries with which is one of the most contentious issues in the negotiation for a future free trade deal so there are actually many in the u.k. all still hoping for some sort of agreement with the european union because we're looking at what's happening here at the moment we're looking at the corona crisis and we know billions of billions already loves because of corona and then the industry is coming in and manufacturing car industry they're really bagging the u.k. government to find a compromise with the european union so it will be very very hard for us johnson's government to just basically walk out and take the blame for foot for this sort of clean break and for not having a deal with the european union so still they will try and seek some form of compromise even if it's just a very very basic deal but they will still be hoping that something can be achieved
1:07 pm
. you said earlier the e.u. will not be the one to walk away from these talks but other one of the expectations in brussels will be a deal at the end. expectations are really low because from the e.u. perspective britain has not been moving on these essential issues and this is particularly state aid this is governments off the deal and this is something that has now gained even more importance governance of this deal might means that if there is trouble if there are divergence is then who gets to decide how to solve the problem is there going to be some courts. want to force that is a tricky issue because the u.k. says under no circumstances will be except rulings of the european court of justice so some other body has to be found now there has been no movement on that because the 2 sides can't get together and the point here is that the internal market bill
1:08 pm
this bill that means that britain is somehow nixing it was draw agreement at least the parts was regards to trade in ireland and northern ireland. means that trust has been totally lost everybody here says now if they won't keep their word on that if they are ready to breach international law in this case what will keep them from breaking international law in future deals in the next case with regard to trade agreement so that creates new problems and so the perspective looks rather somber from here for a great deal in time till the end of the year. brussels bit mas in london thank you both very much. time to have a look at some of the other stories making headlines today russian opposition leader alexander valley has accused president vladimir putin of being behind his poisoning with a soviet era nerve agents not only has posted comments online as his recovery in germany progresses in his 1st interview involved is said i don't have any other

dissidents what we protesters do is deemed to be wrong the authorities sleeplessness troublemakers i so want to protest or my right to speak up will be suppressed even more severely oddly. enough the stakes are even higher now as people can be jailed for their speech under the national security law . but i believe the movement isn't over yet one is just continuing in another form so i took. the students feel hopeless and just as the pro-democracy movement to find a way out in pursuance of justice they will try every means a stone as they used to free to do so. is still standing by in hong kong for us t.v. you said earlier that today is the traditional day of protest in hong kong can we expect further clashes between protesters and police.

1:36 pm
they're too busy saving people's lives or missions for west of the place. there were. over say thank you storm front kiersten has just passed over now that the seas are calmer conditions are ideal for crossing the english channel vollies you see you know it's one of it's not all. all go by the course in the channel to dive because it's calm. it was 2 years ago that matt 1st spotted a rubber boat with migrants bound for britain these days he encounters desperate refugees almost daily there leaving no i think there's also said going to be seen leaving the beaches in the fall. and i want to get that 1st couple of miles a wife show before it becomes dialogue so they seem to be leaving and so it's very full going on and then they get to the shipping lines and we go through the busiest shipping lines government down. it's near dawn when matt makes out a tiny vessel some 20 kilometers off the french coast.
1:37 pm
the english channel is the busiest waterway in the world. this season seafarers are stunned at the 3 men have made it this far this of 2 inches a free board in the hall of fog exhausting if a wife goes out of sync but so. will look out for that well then yeah margaret was so to the west of the large ship not just the coast guard there's another thing down to the west. and he said so if you could you could you keep a visual in both of them they're only allowed to take the man on board if the vessel is sinking this isn't the case so for now all they can do is stay alert them i'm going to run now my. the flight to england. but there's a lot of. mochi that you know when i've gone i need some help with your stuff
1:38 pm
i can't come out and make sure everybody is out of my sight. so far this year over $5000.00 migrants have crossed the english channel it's become a major transit route for refugees as long as weather conditions remain favorable many more will be risking the passage they want to reach the island before bragg's it is finalized these days dover harbor is full of the band and vessels some of the local pushback however is the will during. blogs coming into the country that we don't know nothing about it concerns me to be honest with you because i could be anyone they could be right place murderous they could be criminals and we know nothing about them we put them up in hotels and then given him houses. that gross misconceptions like these against the new arrivals are common among many of them self declared british patriots many of these angry working class protesters fear britain is being overrun by foreigners.
1:39 pm
we've got hundreds of thousands of high risk we've got tens of thousands of homeless veterans on the streets and yet these are coming in on blood you know what a nice point for the 345 story out cause enough to float follow lost already are left to die on the streets and we've got enough we have got you know. the protesters are directing their ire at lawmakers to they see prime minister boris johnson elected on the promise of curbing immigration has failed to deliver we try to test i'm not going to start i know years we've been 100 nights in signature petition went and. we're going to start government. 8 government for your labor so the next step it is we have to bring it to the street some have even started taking the law into their own hands. well that's really an.
1:40 pm
opal in the guys it was a go was simple. well we wouldn't follow it wrong they. just . don't have the traffic is to turn all. of the self-proclaimed vigilante live streams the events on you tube yeah thermo the resentment could be borne chiefly out of ignorance all these right wing lies about how they live in high towers of the touch payers expense is not true. $11.00 to approach one should claim for asylum is being processed you have $37.00 pounds a week to live on yeah as might be so to 5 year us i don't know he speaks nothing. matt coker has only been at sea for a few hours and has already spotted the 3rd migrant boat today 9 individuals from afghanistan are trapped on their vessel unable to maneuver and you are.
1:41 pm

1:42 pm
the guy crate i'm in russia is the largest permafrost crater in the world and all but was located in one of the coldest regions on earth in siberia it's 2 is facing the effects of the climate crisis the ice is slowing increasing the craters size year by year and the rising temperatures are an alarming developments and they could affect the livelihood of people like we have here needs the colds to keep food supplies for his community. deep in the heart of the mountain is where. keeps a supply that's because it's cold here freezing cold even in summer some products can be stored here for up to 2 years without spoiling. here we store so flour all the time to meet all the data chips to fruit grow it's practical and much
1:43 pm
cheaper than a climate controlled warehouse. or even in summer the temperature in this ice cellar is normally 15 degrees celsius below 0 but cousin can tell that northern siberia is getting warmer and warmer even underground. operable things are naturally kept cold here in the permafrost now we've covered the cellar up with sheets to keep out the warmth of group growth this year the ice summer was one or 2 degrees warmer with that change isn't too bad it's ok for a bit more. but for how much longer in the villages but the guy there are many ice sellers like. the village depends on them for it supplies over land access is only possible when the river is frozen for 4 months a year it forms the road in and out. from the generator april we can use the winter months to receive supplies. in the summer because these 3 stories
1:44 pm
get weaker. deliveries by airplane from the regional capital yes it's expensive but necessary. with temperatures that can drop to minus 50 degrees in winter life in butter guy is dictated by the cold permafrost still covers the area but it's starting to thaw. this is the but i got a crater just a few kilometers from the village it's the largest permafrost crater in the world one kilometer wide and 100 meters deep and it's growing. the crater was originally caused by deforestation as the frozen earth was no longer protected by trees today it's also exposed to the rising arctic temperatures the melting permafrost sets off a vicious cycle the organic substances in the ice decompose as it melts which
1:45 pm
releases more greenhouse gases which in turn speeds up global warming. what modern processes were observing at the bottom like a crater are things we're seeing everywhere else just to a lesser extent the ice under the ground melts on the ground collapses but it happens everywhere. but the glacial about a guy crater is the perfect example of why we shouldn't mess around with the permafrost still. watching it sure. but the true severity of the situation has been slow to hit home even though the signs are clear neighboring dress a young ski is otherwise one of the coldest places in the world but this summer temperatures hit 38 degrees it's never been so hot because most houses in the region rest on stilts in the ice the record temperatures could widely destabilize the building foundations. houses here could collapse because of the melting
1:46 pm
permafrost but will. they sit on supports in the ground just.
