welcome to bbc news. new laws are to be introduced, giving people greater control over what happens to their online personal data. the government says the legislation offers "the right to be forgotten," with proposals in the data protection bill making it easier to withdraw consent for information to be used. companies will also have to obtain "explicit" consent, rather than using pre—selected tick boxes, to gather details online. here's our technology correspondent rory cellanjones. your data, a valuable resource
flowing around the world, giving companies and governments all sorts of intimate details about how you lived your life. now, a new law is supposed to give us all more control. the law is an opportunity to keep up with the changing pace of technology. companies will have more accountability and consumers are going to have more control. the new law includes a right to be forgotten, making it easier to find out what they do companies hold on you and get it a race. there will be an end to tick boxes on websites which often see consumers handing over data by default and the data watchdog will be able to find up to £70 million for companies, or 4% of the global turnover. the new law is almost entirely based on a major new european data protection regulation that comes in next may. it is designed to tackle the power of the giant firms which store our information. we are now leaving a data trail wherever we go, turn on your mobile phone and you could be uploading your exercise details or even your dating preferences.
get on public transport with a travel card and there will be a log of every journey that you make. and pay with a card in a shop or online and even more information about what you like and how you live will end up in the hands of big companies. it is social networks which now hold much of our most sensitive data. in future it should be easier to wipe away things we would rather forget. though exactly how much power the new law gives individuals is not clear. i think it is a start, it puts a line in the sand certainly to say individuals, their personal data, it gives the sense of control and that is essential for trust and for the protection of a very fundamental right of privacy. whether or not it will achieve that objective is another thing. our data is in the hands of all kinds of companies, big and small. all of them have now got to get to grips with very complex new rules or face the
threat of big fines. with me now is dr orla lynskey, assistant professor of law at the london school of economics. thanks for being with us. would you welcome this kind of legislation?” think the first thing to note is that this legislation is not entirely new. insofar as one thing that hasn't been very adequately document, perhaps by the government oi’ document, perhaps by the government or the media, is its primarily implementation of eu rules into the national system. and those rules will build on the existing law we have in the uk, the 1998 data protection act, which already contains a right to delete. so this is more about continue to radical change, i would say. is more about continue to radical change, iwould say. do is more about continue to radical change, i would say. do people use that right to delete? how many people do go to a social media company and get personal data about
them deleted? one of the big questions here is, like many of the other data protection rights, it places the burden on the individual themselves to go out and be proactive in exercising their rights. and so, to a certain extent, many individuals and do that, we tend to sell our soul force and free wi—fi and be less active in that regard. but there was a big judgment in this field in 2014 where the european court of justice in this field in 2014 where the european court ofjustice this stated that as a result of this right to delete, individual is good in some circumstances have information to listed from google search engine. and that is something we have actually seen from almost 1 million individuals it across the eu exercise in the past few years. i think if you make it a bit easier for individuals to exercise these rights, promote them a little more, as the government is doing here, we might see individuals engaging with them a little more proactively and using them. how it easy is it top, technically, for this company is, i
don't know, google or facebook or twitter, to delete the stuff if someone twitter, to delete the stuff if someone does twitter, to delete the stuff if someone does want twitter, to delete the stuff if someone does want it deleted? some of the larger company is in particular, for instance, google, will be used to dealing with requests for deletion are personal formation. and it has been quiet zealously guarding that's deletion in terms of how does it. bigger challenge is with smaller company, as with many data protection rights, the cost of deletion could be quite high and could pose technical challenges that smaller companies don't have the resources to deal with. another problem is perhaps the digital information is very hard to contain. 0nce digital information is very hard to contain. once it is made available, then you can't really put it back in then you can't really put it back in the box. get out there. it's out there. so that next question such as, ifi there. so that next question such as, if i post a tweet on twitter that i later want to remove but that has been subsequently retweeted by others, what obligations would a company by twitter then have two follow u p company by twitter then have two follow up with those others to
delete? 0r follow up with those others to delete? or to ensure that that information isn't made available on other platforms, other social media platforms? thank you very much for being with us. and we'll find out how this story — and many others — are covered in tomorrow's front pages at 10:40pm this evening in the papers. our guests joining me tonight are camilla tominey, political editor at the sunday express, and former political adviser ayesha hazarika. north korea says it will make america "pay the price" for drafting tough new un sanctions over its missile and nuclear weapons programme. the un's unanimous vote on sanctions follows repeated missile tests by pyongyang, which have escalated tensions across east asia. rupert wingfield hayes reports. aircraft radio. a relic of the cold war, on the last cold war frontier. just after dawn, i'm riding the chase car as a us spy plane heads out on a classified mission.
the pilot will climb to 70,000 feet, and from there, peer deep into north korea. our mission is to provide the capability for our leadership to see what's going on before anybody else. we're up there every single day to deter the north koreans from deciding one day they can get away with something. speaks in korean. from across the border tonight, fresh threats. north korean state tv warning the us it will pay 1000 times for its crime of imposing new economic sanctions on pyongyang. meeting in manila with china's foreign minister, the us secretary of state again called on pyongyang to return to the negotiating table. the best signal that north korea could give us that they're prepared to talk would be to stop these missile launches. here in south korea
at the 51st fighter wing, they continue to hope for the best, whilst preparing for the worst. everybody we've spoken to here agrees that another conflict on the korean peninsula would be an utter disaster for everybody. that hundreds of thousands of people would die. but they also say the best way of stopping it happening is to be ready. and that's why these guys practice and practice and practice — so that kim jong—un knows that if he tries to attack the south, there will be an overwhelming and immediate response. i hope that north korea calculates correctly and realises that. so obviously, everyone on this side, and i believe north korea does as well... no one wants war. everyone wants deterrents to work. should deterrents fail, though, we have to be ready to go. as these 8ns roll down the runway for another practice flight, they are just 48
miles from the north korean border. the same distance as london to brighton. in south korea, the enemy is never far away. rupert wingfield hayes, bbc news, the 0san air base, south korea. well, we can speak now to patricia lewis, who's research director for international security at the think—tank chatham house. patricia, the north koreans seem to be rubbing up the rhetoric once again, saying america will pay the price for this tough new un sanction resolution that was passed at the united nations? they always say things like this when the us put in place measures to try to stop their nuclear programme. it's notjust the us this time, though. it is china and russia as well, the whole of the united nations, everyone in the international community has lined up against them in this case. and that is quite important and new. and i
think it says that things are getting quite serious. when you say series, is that because you think the north koreans are becoming, or their technology, their nuclear weapons programme technology, is becoming more sophisticated? yes, and we have seen a huge step up in their ballistic missile capability, they have been able to design make a new ballistic missile that can travel all the way from north korea to the united states. we know they can already attack us bases in the pacific and japan and south korea particular, but this is a huge step forward. they don't yet, we think, have a warhead to bid on top of that missile, but they are getting closer and closer and at some point, they will carry out another nuclear weapons will carry out another nuclear wea po ns test will carry out another nuclear weapons test and then we will find out how close they are. china is a lwa ys out how close they are. china is always the key diplomatically, isn't it? are seen as the key to putting pressure on the north koreans. and they seem to be perhaps a little bit closer to the us on this in recent days? china is not a great friend of north korea, they are a neighbour.
and north korea as a militant. and it sits right on china's border and separates china from south korea and get a buffer between south korea and the united states and china. —— north korea is an irritant. if north korea were to do something foolish, and attract an attack on it, then in fa ct and attract an attack on it, then in fact china would be much worse off in every single way, this in terms of refugees coming across the border, the economy of north korea, but also the united states right against its border. do the un moves, tougher moves in sections and so on, does that mean anything to do resume in young and? do they care?” does that mean anything to do resume in young and? do they care? i think they do. i think that is why bc director. and these are the target it came at the elites and have an impact. ——i it came at the elites and have an impact. —— i think that is why we see the rhetoric. whether it will have an impact depends on how they implement it. but i think this un security council, we are seeing very targeted sanctions that are aimed at having an effect. so let's see what happens over the next few months.
and you think, the building up the weapons programme so intensely because of the leadership in north korea or is this just a continuation of what north korea has been doing for a long time? it is a continuation since about 2006. prior to that, there were periods when north korea and the united states we re north korea and the united states were actually negotiating along with south korea and other members of the international community to at least slow down their capability. but since 2006 and the nuclear weapons tests, they have really ratcheted up all their capabilities in this regard and the temptation is that they see them as a deterrent, whereas in fact i think these weapons are acting as a lightning rod. —— the interpretation is they area rod. —— the interpretation is they are a deterrent. uc kim jong-un's smiling face another there is a missile launch, it's quite alarming, isn't it? they are proud of the fact they have been able to achieve this, they have been able to achieve this, they think this is providing them
with security. and it's not a very different equation from the type of nuclear deterrent that this country uses, for instance. if we had these types of weapons are horrendous, soulful noble attack us. there are using the same logic we use you talk about nuclear weapons in the uk. —— so awful no one will attack us. the difference is that outside the international board international treaties, they are stepping outside international boundaries. and an unpredictable resume. thank you so much for being with us. doctors at a hospital in brazil say a british tourist, who was shot after her family mistakenly drove into a slum area or favela, is lucky to have survived. eloise dixon from south—east london was travelling with her partner and their three children, in angra dos reis, a popular coastal area, around 90 miles from rio de janeiro. officials say the family were attacked, after taking a wrong turning in their car. richard galpin reports. a simple mistake led to this family being under fire. this is their vehicle.
eloise had been sitting in the passenger side, the bullet holes clearly visible. the gunmen opened fire when the family failed to stop in a slum area controlled by drug traffickers. but she reached hospital quickly. her partner had kept rising. —— brazing. she needed emergency treatment. two bullets had hit her in the abdomen which could easily have been fatal but she survived. translation: the bullet passed by the abdomen and did not hit the important organs, she was very lucky. it all happened in the popular coastal resort. 90 miles from rio dejaneiro. local officials admit the slum areas can be very
dangerous. translation: we have a community that we cannot enter, the press cannot enter. the public service cannot enter, that is inadmissible. we have to take urgent measures. but for this family, it is too late. a holiday which nearly ended in total disaster, all because they turned off a road in search of some bottles of water. let's speak to our reporter in sao paulo. what do we know about exactly what happened? well, according to local media, it was the very issue, she was trying to find some water and going off in the wrong direction and misunderstanding directions, as well, when they entered the favela and were told to go out of the car
but couldn't understand what the armed men were saying. so it seems to bea armed men were saying. so it seems to be a catalogue of errors that turned into something very tragic. but according to the health, the doctors who are looking after her, she's very lucky to be alive.” think two wins, but she is set as you say, not seriously injured? —— two winds. that is right. there were to billets, one script her abdomen, but in touch any vital organ. according to the hospital where she was shot, she's talking and responding well to surgery, she went into surgery late afternoon on sunday, and now the family are planning to move her to a hospital much closer to rio dejaneiro, the city, the moment she's in the state, about 90 miles, but they wanted mr closer into rio itself will stop these favelas, slum areas, they're not all dangerous, they? darkens and some, but some are more dangerous than others. —— there are guns and
son. rio de janeiro itself is going through a very hard time, the city recently through a very hard time, the city rece ntly ha d through a very hard time, the city recently had employing the material on the streets to deal with escalating violence. —— employee military on the streets. it is a real problem for the city. favelas, generally, you don't go into unless you speak to a local guide or someone you speak to a local guide or someone who you speak to a local guide or someone who goes “— you speak to a local guide or someone who goes —— lives there. going into favela is not wise unless, by mistake, you just don't it's not recommended. it's a difficult situation, especially in rio where favelas or often side—by—side with other communities and locals will know what to do, but this is in the first, people have gone into town,s by mistake, whether because of a gps application that has gone wrong, certainly it is not the first time the sort of thing has happened. thank you very much indeed. the headlines: canter
the government announces proposals to make it easierfor people to force social media companies to delete personal data. north korea has said tough new un sanctions will not stop it from developing its nuclear arsenal. some areas of england are cutting back on ivf fertility treatment to save money, a charity believes. sport no, and for a full round—up of day four of the world athletics championships, here's 0li foster at the london stadium. thanks indeed to you. we are about halfway through the evening's session here on the fourth day of these fantastic championships, we have had so much drama, so many fantastic performances and tonight, some really, really world—class athletes and performances are already, we have been getting very excited about the women's hammer final. that has just finished in the
last couple of minutes. britain's sophie hitchen was going in that ru ns sophie hitchen was going in that runs medal at the rio 0lympics last year, she fell somewhat short but evenif year, she fell somewhat short but even if she had had a personal best, it would have got into the medal places. that was 72 32, to managers of runs. a woman from poland has won yet another global gold. no medal here for selfie but still plenty to look forward to and an awful lot has happened already. we had the early rounds of the men's 200 metres here. and all i is really on the south african who is going for the 400 final tomorrow. they have changed the whole schedule for him. but look at his shoulder, that is danny talbot, one of the three british sprinters qualified for the final. but danny talbot, the race of his
life, a personal best, he really enjoyed running alongside van newkirk there. and he spoke to bbc sport after. that is what a day's all about. and i've just sport after. that is what a day's all about. and i'vejust got sport after. that is what a day's all about. and i've just got to recover and try and do it again. you we re recover and try and do it again. you were you recover and try and do it again. you we re you aware recover and try and do it again. you were you aware of the time when you cross the line? are not interested in science. it's nice, but it's not about hands here. —— i'm not interested in times. so much going on on the track at the moment, as you can see. the men's 400 meter hurdles are underway at the moment as well. and we have just got our first months of the women's skipper, the british skipper, a lee boyle. she's going in the first round of the 400 metre hurdles. and she qualify for the semifinals, the top three going through, you can see ellie doyle, closest to the camera they're down on the outside lane. sprinters, especially for andrew, they don't really going on the
outside lanes on the inside lanes. —— especialfor 400. outside lanes on the inside lanes. —— especial for 400. but outside lanes on the inside lanes. —— especialfor 400. but she outside lanes on the inside lanes. —— especial for 400. but she safely through, the british athletics team skipper, she spoke after as well.” think with hurdles, it's a bit easier because you get your rhythm and you've got to stick to that. i kind of eased off and it bit coming into hurdle ten which i shouldn't have done, but is happy to have secured the quotation for tomorrow. something that we might look forward to later in the week is a world record for the triple jump. taylor, the young american, has been gunning forjoe the lead words, 22—year—old record that he set out the world championships in gothenburg. that was just a convocation jump, championships in gothenburg. that wasjust a convocationjump, he only had tojump one, that was wasjust a convocationjump, he only had to jump one, that was all he needed. so taylor is going to take a
couple of days off and come back and is looking to break that record. wr. i don't want to let you down, but i have made the promise to myself. that was taylor speaking to me after that qualifying jump for the triple jump. he's going to what past jonathan edwards just down there, actually. jonathan edwards has been very supportive, knowing that taylor is the man most likely to break his record. we had a couple medal ceremonies before we got underway today, america's winner of the women's 400 metres, a fantastic shock result because elaine thomson, the jamaican, was way down the field. and even get on the podium. this followed justin gatlin winning the 100 metres, with usain bolt
taking bronze. and a lot of the chat has been about the treatment that gatland has got, there were a lot of cheers and boos all the way through the race and when he got on the podium to get his gold medal yesterday. and i asked aboutjustin gatlin's treatment and the effect it might have had on the american team. i'm pretty sure he has to be strong. imean, he i'm pretty sure he has to be strong. i mean, he can deal with anything. i think he handled it quite well. she said that they all rallied round and he has handled it really well full stops you will be back. athletes pouring through the various heat here. things we got to look forward toa here. things we got to look forward to a little later, the hundred ten metre hurdles final. the 2012 champion hugh has the world record
and had a kidney to respond to years ago. and in the final of the 1500 metres, the last thing on the track here, is go to be such a tough race, a really high quality field. we will have all the reaction to it as well. thank you very much indeed. enjoy it. it is our man at the london stadium there. it is a 20 5pm. a campaign group says a rising number of groups commissioning nhs care in england are cutting back on ivf provision. fertility network uk is calling for three full cycles to be provided to women aged under 40, as recommended in official guidelines. a little earlier i spoke to our health editor hugh pym about what is happening. this trend has been known about for
a while but has with the accelerated the of ivf availability in england. of the 219 or commissioning groups, nhs groups in each area who pay for your health care —— 209 commissioning groups, five don't provide any ivf at all. now, the clinical regulator recommends three full cycles of ivf for women up to the age of 40. so the areas i have mentioned just aren't meeting that standard. and there are some areas which have restricted it to 30—35 is, not up to 40. and these numbers have increased over the last six months as campaigners have made clear. and doctors and charities are seeing patients presently being let down, that it's devastating and they are being left for rubble. the nhs in some cases won't pay for their ca re in some cases won't pay for their care in different bits of england and they are having to pay for it
themselves if they can afford it. i should say, though, the nhs in scotla nd should say, though, the nhs in scotland will pay for three full cycles of ivf. wales, two rounds and northern ireland, one. aldiss, presumably, is the result of the nhs's financial problems, people can't afford a ? nhs's financial problems, people can't afford a? —— all of this, presumably... that is what say. the nhs does not have unlimited resources , nhs does not have unlimited resources, decisions are being made every single day and they're having to balance the needs of individual against those of the entire local population. so this is happening progressively. they are restricting ivf in these different areas and in some cases not offering it at all. the response from doctor seuss, well, if the nhs is a national health service, it should be offering the same thing to everybody out across england. —— the response from doctors is... and these areas are not meeting the standard set by the nhs's own clinical regulator so
something is very wrong. by the religious is very frequented now and energising the's point is, it's not up energising the's point is, it's not up to us, it's up to the clinical commissioning groups. —— the nhs is very fragmented. but it's different in scotland, where nationally, women up in scotland, where nationally, women up to the age of 40 were appropriate or offered three. cycles of clinical ivf. a girl was killed when a car hit it will in mother could. her parents described her as the brightest of stars and saturday had left a hole in her hearts. —— said her death had left... the head of the family courts in england and wales has approved a plan for the future care of a suicidal teenage girl, known as x. she'll be moved to a special unit on thursday after doctors managed to find her a place. but sirjames munby, whose intervention sparked the move, said the provision of care ‘should not be dependent‘ onjudicial
involvement, and the final outcome was ‘not a matter for congratulation‘. a 20—year—old british model, who says she was kidnapped and held for nearly a week in italy, has returned to the uk. chloe ayling says she feared for her life. italian police believe the model was attacked and drugged, before attempts were made to sell her in an online auction — here in the uk, the met police say they were made aware of concerns over the welfare of a woman overseas last month. a polish man, who lives in the uk, has been arrested. gavin lee reports from milan. held captive inside this isolated italian farmhouse. the bizarre and elaborate kidnap allegation centres on how 20—year—old model chloe ayling, from south london, was duped into leaving the uk for a photoshoot in milan. once inside this fake studio, she is said to have been snatched by three men and injected with the drug ketamine. unconscious, she was bundled into this bag, placed in the boot of a car and driven away. while chloe ayling was held captive
in this house behind me, the police statement says she was tied to furniture, a chest of drawers, whilst the kidnappers tried to sell her on the dark web, and then raise a ransom. the hideout is surrounded by abandoned houses, with only one person nearby. translation: first of all i saw this english man, this english painter. but before that, there was this mercedes. then, one day, a volvo arrived. the mercedes disappeared, but they kept the volvo. italian authorities say chloe ayling was eventually released by one of her captors, and driven to the british consulate in milan. lukasz herba, a polish national living in the west midlands, has been arrested in connection with kidnap and extortion. chloe ayling is now back in the uk. she‘s spoken briefly to reporters. i‘ve been through a terrifying experience. i feared for my life second by second, minute
by minute, hour by hour. i am incredibly grateful to the italian and uk authorities for all they have done to secure my safe release. milan is a magnet for aspiring models, where the dangers of unscrupulous agencies have long been clear. but this rare case has shocked and baffled investigators here, still trying to piece together exactly what happened. gavin lee, bbc news, milan. this is bbc news. coming up in the next few minutes: it‘s england‘s first home test series win against south africa since 1998. we‘ll bring you the highlights from old trafford. time for the weather. good evening. some parts have been plagued with a weather front for a good some parts have been plagued with a weatherfront for a good portion some parts have been plagued with a weather front for a good portion of the day, bits and pieces of rain, some quite heavy and that willjust linger into the first part of tuesday. looking further north,

news, manchester. 8:35pm is the time. one of scotland yard‘s most senior officers has defended the government‘s controversial counter terrorism programme known as prevent. commander dean haydon has accused parts of the muslim community of not wanting the programme to work. he said criticism of prevent was based on ignorance. nomia iqbal, from the bbc‘s asian network, reports. four terror attacks in three months. it‘s made some people question whether the goverment‘s key strategy to stop people from being radicalised is working. the programme, called prevent, has been accused of being toxic and stigmatising muslims. but scotland yard‘s most senior counterterrorism officer has defended it. some of the criticisms coming from sections of the community that don‘t, for a variety of different reasons, political or otherwise, just don‘t want prevent to work in the first place. that‘s based on sometimes ignorance, that they don‘t understand properly how prevent works... prevent has been around
for nearly 15 years. teachers, parents and faith leaders refer people they are suspicious about to a local prevent team. latest figures show there were around 7,500 referrals last year. and of those, action was taken on one in ten cases. those involved in the prevent programme say its work deals with a range of threats across society, including far—right extremism. but some have criticised it as an attack on muslims, and are not convinced by the way the programme is being run. critics say prevent is not transparent enough about what it does. i think we need the community buying. it needs to be community—led. we need to make sure that it‘s focused on safeguarding. so everybody feels confident, right from the beginning, that prevent is not about spying, not about undermining a particular community, but it is about safeguarding vulnerable individuals and keeping us all safe. that‘s something everyone agrees on.
but critics are calling for an independent review of the programme. and there is concern that until that happens, prevent will continue to generate mistrust and fear among some communities. nomia iqbal, bbc news. the labour leaderjeremy corbyn has said he is very sad about lives lost in venezuela and condemned violence done "by any side". mr corbyn had been under pressure to condemn president nicolas maduro after voicing support for him in the past — president maduro has been accused ofjailing opposition leaders and presiding over months of protests in which more than a hundred people have died. 0ur political correspondent vicki young reports. applause. back from holiday and back on the campaign trail. jeremy corbyn says he and his party were written off but proved people wrong. he hopes this summer tour of britain will build on the progress made in the election, and he will focus once
again on public services. it‘s no good congratulating firefighters, paramedics, police officers, for running into a burning building as they did at grenfell tower, and then denying them the proper reward of decent wages and job security in the future. enough of this hypocrisy, pay them properly and fund the services properly. applause. mr corbyn insists he‘s the only leader offering a message of hope to voters. the next general election isn‘t due for almost five years but westminster has been a volatile place recently and jeremy corbyn says he wants to be ready for the unexpected. labour‘s identified dozens of seats where they believe they can beat the conservatives next time round. and officials say mr corbyn is now in permanent campaign mode. but its events thousands of miles away in venezuela that some want the labour leader to talk about. a disputed vote has given president maduro ruling socialist party more powers.
violent protests have left over 100 dead. would he now condemn president maduro after voicing support for him in the past? what i condemn is the violence that has been done by any side, by all sides, in this. violence is not going to solve the issue. the issues in venezuela are partly structural because not enough has been done to diversify the economy away from oil. that has to be a priority for the future. but critics say mr corbyn needs to go much further than that. well, iwould hope he would first of all condemn completely the dictatorial tendencies of the regime. and accept that what's seen ten or 15 years ago as a role model has actually failed, let alone apply that kind of system to the uk. the labour leader is back where he feels comfortable, addressing enthusiastic supporters. over the next few weeks though his aim is to win over those who voted conservative two months ago. vicky young, bbc news, crawley. the expected disruption from major
