11:01 pm
world news. the man believed to be the world's greatest ever sprinter in a shock result failed to win his final individual 100 metre race in the world athletic championships in london. the airtime 0lympic world athletic championships in london. the airtime olympic champion came third, beaten byjustin gatlin. —— eight—time. it began with a thunderstorm. and then gave way to blue skies. jamaican fans made to feel at home in london as they got ready for what they believed would be a fairy tale ending for their hero. the last run, the last time. we will be here with him. i want to say i am confident, overconfident. i know he will win.
11:02 pm
when he finishes it will be the best celebration. it will be all night and all morning. by the evening, the night sky was crackling with expectation. the only british finalist was first out. they saved usain bolt in the last. but the warning signs had been dead. beaten for the first time in four years in a semi—final by a young american. —— been there. he was shaking. he looks to the heavens for divine intervention one last time. usain bolt get a good start. he has to chase hard. here comes. justin gatlin wins it! disbelief swept around the stadium. this was not in the script. there would be no 12th title, no dream goodbye. the crowd made it more than clear what they
11:03 pm
thought of the result. usain bolt was dead —— their darling, gatlin their enemy. he had to settle for third best. his legacy was secure. dan roan asked the father of usain bolt for his reaction. yes, i am a little bit sad. but it happens sometimes. i was doubtful he would win the race. by finishing third, i just have to accept the result. do you think it would have been better to retire after rio? not really. i was trying to persuade him to go for one more year. but he said it is time to go. he was right? he was right. what happens now with usain
11:04 pm
bolt? i don't know. ithink right. what happens now with usain bolt? i don't know. i think you must try and do something in the athletic field. but i am not sure what he is going to do. how did he take defeat? he looked 0k. a lap of honour. he said sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. in his mind, he knew he was going to lose one day. that is why he was trying to leave. the united nations security council has voted unanimously to impose tough new sanctions against north korea. the resolution was drafted by the united states and it comes in response to two long—range ballistic missile tests last month. the sanctions aim to deprive pyongyang of more than $1 billion a year in export earnings. from the un in new york, nick bryant reports. this was a show about menace. north
11:05 pm
korea last month testing and intercontinental politico style seemingly capable of reaching los angeles and even the odd. —— ballistic missile. it led to a deal between the us and china to impose tough new sanctions. this is the most stringent set of sanctions on any country in a generation. these sanctions will cut deep, and in doing so, will give the north korean leadership a taste of the desperation they have chosen to inflict on the north korean people. every country has to make sure these measures are adhered to. every country must live up to their word. this time there is too much at stake
11:06 pm
and we cannot afford to fail. most of the export trade of north korea goes across the border into china. pyongyang could be deprived of roughly a third of its export income, hitting its trade in coal, i ran, and seafood. but they don't limit deliveries. —— iron. the pyongyang regime could collapse. translation: we hope that the parties will immediately take action to prevent further escalation and create the conditions for the resumption of talks and to bring the nuclear issue of north korea to an end, seeking a peaceful solution through dialogue. this week, the pentagon conducted its own tests of a ballistic missile, proving that the us is already able to prevent these attacks. last week, in another show of force, they flew supersonic bombers over the korean peninsula.
11:07 pm
but as well as displaying military hardware, the donald trump administration has indicated it might be willing to conduct talks with north korea. the sanctions increased the pressure on pyongyang to enter into dialogue. so far, sanctions have failed, and most intelligent analysts here believe north korea will not come to the negotiating table until the risen a doubt. —— there is no doubt. they have a missile that can not only reach the us mainland, but can be armed with a nuclear warhead. police in italy are investigating the abduction of a british woman who had been there for nearly a week. she says she was drugged and there was an attempt to sell around the internet. a polish man living in britain was arrested. she had
11:08 pm
travelled to milan for a photo shoot. but it was bogus. she was abducted and healthier, and abandoned shop on the outskirts of the city. —— held here. the 20 year old british model was attacked and held by two people. translation: she was doped with ketamine, locked in a bag, and carried for hours in a car. think what could have happened if she had asthma. she was put in this vehicle, it is thought. she was taken to turin and spent much of her ordeal handcuffed to a chest of drawers. the kidnapper is alleged to have tried to sell her for sex on the internet and demanded a ransom of nearly a quarter of £1 million. but after six days she was released and taken to the british consulate in milan. this man, a 30 year old polish national living in britain, was arrested by italian police. consular support is being provided
11:09 pm
toa consular support is being provided to a british woman in italy and they are in touch with local authorities. so the long, bbc news. —— sophie long. a severe heatwave has affected a huge area of the balkans, bringing with it droughts and forest fires. scorching times for sicily. with records temperatures, the island's grapes suddenly need to be harvested weeks early. but working in the fields in 43 degrees is brutal. translation: today, unfortunately, the temperature was so high, we had to tell the workers to come back later when it's cooler. we all suffer, the machines suffer, the vineyard suffers. the fight here against the sun to save the grape and wine industry is reflected in vineyards across europe.
11:10 pm
but the wider impact has led to some governments to warn people to stay indoors in the afternoon because of the threat to public health. in the balkans, authorities have been advising people to stay indoors and increase their water intake. in hungary, it's about keeping cool and carrying on, and there's strong advice from hungarian officials. translation: if you know any elderly people ask them if they need any help and offer to do their shopping instead for them. don't let them go to the market in this heat. we also draw your attention to adequate fluid replacement for children and infants. he says it's very hot where he is — marseille, france. it's a0 degrees. staying hydrated while travelling has been a key message here. this is galicia in northern spain — flames turning the sky red and shutting highways. here in sicily, the usually packed summer streets look more like ghost towns. for those hoping for a break from europe's heatwave, temperatures are expected to return
11:11 pm
to some normality late next week. this is something scientists predict we should get used to, though, suggesting global warming will lead to more of us being exposed to increased extreme weather patterns in the years to come. gavin lee, bbc news, sicily. i have been speaking to paul wilkinson, who is looking at the impact of the climate on a health. he said deaths related to extreme weather would increase 50 fold by the end of the century. the study is based on a model of the way the climate may evolve over this century and the assumption we don't cut back on the emissions of greenhouse gases, that they go on unabated. is that does continue, the exposure
11:12 pm
patterns that are reported in this paperare patterns that are reported in this paper are those we should expect to occui’ paper are those we should expect to occur by the end of the century. and, as you indicate, they suggest there would be a large increase in there would be a large increase in the frequency of severe weather events, referring in particular to see related deaths occurring on the most extreme days of heat, which at the moment is a 100 year event, but could become annual by the end of the century. we have incredibly hot days and parts of europe have this heatwave and already we are seeing a big impact on public health for some people already and we? yet. it is already occurring. —— aren't we. temperatures have been rising for over a century 110w. temperatures have been rising for over a century now. they are projected to rise much further and much faster by the later half of this century if there is not a cut backin
11:13 pm
this century if there is not a cut back in greenhouse gases, and we aren't doing that at the moment. the projection is almost towards business as usual, showing that the report assumptions are likely as the century goes on and will only increase. what needs to happen with oui’ pace increase. what needs to happen with our pace of change if we want to fend off this sort of result? there are two things. we have to get used to the idea there will be warmer temperatures, and some degree of global warming is now inevitable from the greenhouse gases put into the atmosphere we have to have to learn to adapt to protect ourselves and improve buildings and shading and improve buildings and shading and so on. as you can tell, it is not easy. the other important facet is there is a need to accelerate the action we are taking to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases so the
11:14 pm
degree of climate change is not as bad as it would otherwise be. millions of rail passengers are facing three weeks of disruption as work got under way on waterloo. the reva m p work got under way on waterloo. the revamp is costing £800 million. ten of the 19 platforms are being closed, which means a significantly reduced service while it's being carried out. this phase is due to be finished by the 28th of august. 0ur correspondent simonjones spent the day at waterloo. this work is going to last for more than three weeks. this is already the busiest patient in the country, the busiest patient in the country, the plan is in future it will get even more busy with 30% more capacity. how are they doing that? they have already started the work behind me and this is one of the platforms they are going to lengthen so platforms they are going to lengthen so they can take longer trains in future and that means more
11:15 pm
passengers. work started today and it will last 21w. we've got a rather strange sight of ten platforms completely ta ken rather strange sight of ten platforms completely taken out of service. for a saturday, platforms completely taken out of service. fora saturday, no passengers at all on these, which is rather unusual, we've only seen the side of work men on those platforms. some people arriving on the platforms have heard about this, it's been publicised for a year, they have been greeted by signs like this, telling people to go down here to get on trains. people here are offering advice to passengers turning up, summing having heard about this, some in the dark about this, but some passengers we spoke to earlier today weren't particularly impressed with how it's gone so far. it's not great considering the amount you pay for your tickets so you expect the service you request. trying to get to milford, don't know when that's going to happen because the ones that are running our delayed so it's a missed. it's
11:16 pm
crazy, it's meant to not be affected on saturday but already in one day it's a nightmare. it's been well publicised but there's problems, it is unfortunate to be at the same time as the world athletics championships so it may affect those people trying to get there. the headlines on bbc news: jamaican sprinter usain bolt finishes third in his last individual race before retirement. america'sjustin gatlin is the new world 100 metre champion. the un votes unanimously in favour of tough new sanctions against north korea after last month's long—range missile tests. and italian police have arrested a 30—year—old polish man accused of drugging and kidnapping a british model in milan to sell in an online
11:17 pm
auction. sport now and for a full round up from the bbc sport centre, here's katherine downes. usain bolt‘s reign as world 100 metre champion is over. in his last individual race he was beaten into third place in tonight's final at the world championships in london, with american justin gatlin taking gold. bolt went into the final in far from his best form and once again was well behind early on. but the customary surge that so often has saved him failed to materialise, and this time it was gatlin who powered through at the end to finish just ahead of his american team—mate christian coleman. gatling has served two drugs bans and boos rang out when he was declared the winner in a photo finish, but he paid tribute to bolt, who in turn congratulated his rival. it wasn't the way bolt wanted to bow out but he still has a chance of gold in the 100 metres relay later in the championships. my my start, it's killing me! normally i would get through the rounds and get better through the rounds but it didn't come together and that's what
11:18 pm
killed me, it didn't come together andi killed me, it didn't come together and i knew if it didn't come together... i felt like it and i knew if it didn't come together... ifelt like it was there, you know what i mean? the fa ct i there, you know what i mean? the fact i didn't get it was the reason i lost but it's one of those things. how did you manage the motions of the day because the enormity for us was something, your last individual race ina was something, your last individual race in a major championship? was something, your last individual race in a major championship7m was something, your last individual race in a major championship? it was rough, up and down, a bit stressful but i came out here like any other championship and that's what i did, icame championship and that's what i did, i came out and did my best. a great moment, when he is being booed, justin gatlin, a disappointing result for the crowd tonight for obvious reasons but you were a great gentleman to go and give him a hug. he's a great competitor, justin gatlin is always at his best, you have to be at your best and tonight i wasn't. regardless of what happened in the past, i have come back to my sport, i have work hard, faced the rules and penalties and inspired other athletes to be better, i have inspired young athletes at home, i
11:19 pm
wa nt inspired young athletes at home, i want people to know mistakes can happen and you can work hard and the accepted back into the sport. elsewhere british eyes on the track were focussed on laura muir who was running in the semi—finals of the women's 1500 metres. there were a few worries when she appeared at the start line with her leg taped up. but apparently that was just a precaution and she certainly seemed to be moving very freely as she comfortbaly qualified for the final. she came in second behind faith kipyegon. laura weightman also made it through her semi final. really surprised with how i felt, i felt really good and i wanted to stay out of trouble. 1500 metre is just scrappy but i want to get to the final and i've done that now. briton katarina johnson—thompson is up to fourth in the heptathlon. she won her 200 metre heat this evening in 22.86 seconds to keep her faint medal hopes alive. it follows a disappointing high jump earlier today where johnson—thompson could only manage 1.80 metres, well below her best. and after the shot put she was way down in 13th place. but tonight's win saw her make up some ground. the heptathlon competition concludes tomorrow.
11:20 pm
i'm not going to like, it's very hard, back to the hotel, had a bath, had a little cry, if i learned anything from rio last year is that it isa anything from rio last year is that it is a seven event event. last year i gave up afterjumping 1.98 it is a seven event event. last year i gave up afterjumping1.98 so i'm not going to let that happen again. on day two of the fourth and final test between england and south africa, the hosts ended the day very much on top. jonny bairstow was england's main man in the morning session, helping his side to a first innings total of 362. he fell agonisinglyjust one run short of his century, but by then the damage had been done as he and james anderson added 50 runs for the last wicket. anderson, then dismantled the south african batting, taking four wickets to leave south africa reeling on 220—9 at the close of play, still 142 runs behind. i quite liked the pitch. there's a bit of something there. not much movement through the air. it was
11:21 pm
more up and down and a bit sideways. when you're feeling the game all the time like that your confidence is a lwa ys time like that your confidence is always up. you feel like even if you make a few runs you always feel like you're in the game and you can get a wicket at any stage. jimmy paul berry well. i think the wicket has deteriorated a little bit ——jimmy bowled wicket has deteriorated a little bit —— jimmy bowled really well. i think you bowled really well. unfortunately a few dismissals weren't great. in the fourth women's major of the year, the british open at kingsbarns in scotland, it's been a fantastic day for two south koreans, namely ik kim, who retains the lead on 17 under going into the final day, she shot a six under but her compatriot inbee park carded an eight under par to climb up the leaderboard tied for fourth. thailand's moriya jutanugarn and england's georgia hall are tied in second. that's all the sport for now. the prime minister
11:22 pm
of the irish republic, leo varadkar, says it's "only a matter of time," before same—sex marriage is introduced in northern ireland, the only part of the uk, where it's banned. mr varadkar spoke while attending a gay pride event in belfast, from wherejohn campbell reports. this could be the single biggest parade in northern ireland this year. a sign of changing times. uniformed police officers were taking part for the first time. today is about inclusion and representation for the police service of northern ireland. we represent all sections of society. leo varadkar shows the change which has happened in the republic of ireland. he is the country's first openly gay prime minister. the state he leads voted to allow same—sex marriage two years ago, but in northern ireland, it's still outlawed. # it's raining men, hallelujah... mr varadkar said he had come to this
11:23 pm
event as a gesture of solidarity and expected the law will change here. i think it's only a matter of time. it is, of course, a decision for the northern ireland assembly, but i'm confident that, like other western european countries, they will make that decision in due course. those comments were welcomed by pride organisers. northern ireland is still lagging behind the rest of the uk in terms of laws that have been enacted there and they are still not enacted here. it's time we as a community demand change, we demand the same rights as the rest of the united kingdom. the devolved administration, which will have to make a decision on marriage laws here, is currently suspended, because of a dispute between the dup and sinn fein. but during the last period of government, the dup were able to veto a measure which would have led to same—sex marriage. mr varadkar‘s intervention may increase the pressure to change the law. but this is a society where religious conservatives remain influential.
11:24 pm
and that change will be resisted. john campbell, bbc news, belfast. president trump is beginning a 17 day golfing holiday, but his russian counterpart vladimir putin, had more energetic pursuits in mind for his summer break. as part of a three day trip to the siberian wilderness, he's been fishing, swimming and hunting. and once again baring his chest for the cameras. we all give much thanks! a stately home in north yorkshire has transferred part of its art collection to public ownership to settle a tax bill. the pieces which include romans cauldrons and features of mythical characters
11:25 pm
remain on show at castle howard in york —— roman sculptures. the family treasures were collected at castle howard in the 17th and 18th century, treasures as for now are effectively owned by the british taxpayers. 0wners effectively owned by the british taxpayers. owners of the 89 treasures are owned by the nationally in liverpool, a deal that allows castle howard to wipe out an outstanding tax bill of £5.5 million. it's called the acceptance scheme and it allows families to pay their tax bills with works of art as long as those works of art are shown to the public, which is great for the regions and the visiting public. for castle howard it is a win—win situation, the 89 items will still be kept and displayed here, a solution which for the owner means fewer sleepless nights. the £5 million we would have had to find
11:26 pm
from other sources, like selling more objects or land, which would then have incurred more tax, which then have incurred more tax, which then would have incurred finding the tax again, it means that cycle is broken and we can get on with the business of preserving and looking after castle howard. although we as taxpayers now kind of loanees treasures they will be staying put. this stately setting still it seems there rightly home. —— now kind of own these treasures. now time for the weather. hope you didn't catch the showers today, some real deluges around and asa today, some real deluges around and as a result of those that helps us in the weather centre because we see someone for weather watcher pictures coming through. this was the menacing cloud in kent, one of my favourites that was sent through the day. and a double rainbow, always a good one when we have these showers around and yes we have these showers around and yes we have more showers to come into the day ahead. today's were pretty nasty
11:27 pm
in places but they cleared quickly and the evening hours have been really quite quiet and benign in comparison but you can see behind me the cloud brewing up. under starry skies tonight but with lighter winds, you guessed it, quite chilly with temperatures falling back to ten or 11 with temperatures falling back to ten or11 in with temperatures falling back to ten or 11 in the countryside but as we... sorry, in the towns, but in the countryside we could get single figures quite widely and two or three in the glens of scotland, low and for grass frost, pretty early in the season! does the fine and dry weather last? it should do in eastern areas into tomorrow but low pressure and attendant weather fronts will bring cloudier and wetter weather into northern ireland swiftly tomorrow morning and western scotla nd swiftly tomorrow morning and western scotland midmorning on and by lunchtime they will start to pass across the irish sea to the western fringes of england and wales so east best tomorrow. that said, brisk winds should blow the rain out of northern ireland. not many showers
11:28 pm
reaching the far north—east of scotla nd reaching the far north—east of scotland and the northern isles but for much of north—west england and the western fringes of wales we will see outbreaks of rain, east wales and south—west england not faring too badly and for the midlands and parts of north—east england and east anglia and the south—east it could bea anglia and the south—east it could be a pretty usable day considering what's to come. quite warm, but the breeze tempering the feel. not sure that will affect the athletics that much in london tomorrow if you're lucky enough to see it, should be fine and dry, as it should be for the community shield tomorrow between arsenal and chelsea at wembley. doesn't look like the weather front will get into the south until tuesday because it temperatures to stagnate tomorrow evening across northern england, wales and into the midlands. to the north of it, showers. to the south of it, drier and north of it, showers. to the south of it, drierand bright north of it, showers. to the south of it, drier and bright weather into monday. again that weather front is sat in similarareas monday. again that weather front is sat in similar areas so could be a
11:29 pm
dreary day for the south—west, parts of wales and the midlands and thereafter the potential for the west being best with heavy rain, showers and strong winds potentially in southern and eastern parts. lots to look forward to. we will keep you updated on the fine detail with time. hello. this is bbc news. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow morning's papers in a moment. first, the headlines. shock defeat for usain bolt in the world 100—metre final, his last individual race before retirement. his father said bolt knew it was the right time to go. he has no need for quite a while. he
