welcome to bbc news. there've been a growing number of clashes across iran between anti—government protesters and the police. videos posted on social media show at least 2 demonstrators have been shot in the western town of dorud, while protesters in the northern town of abhar have burned a large banner with a picture of iran's supreme leader, ayatollah ali khamenei. the anti—government protests in several parts of the country saw people demonstrating against what they say is corruption and falling living standards. another video from the city of mashdad shows demonstrators torching a police motorbike. the us president donald trump, in his latest tweet, has said oppressive regimes cannot last forever. our correspondent wyre davies reports. a third day of protests in iran. what began in small provincial cities, now spreading to the capital tehran
and the main university campus. these are worrying signs for the iranian government and the ultraconservative shia clerics who have ruled over the country since the 1979 revolution. shouting for the clerics to give him a job, this protester typifies the economic anger felt by many iranians. they accuse the mullahs of living in gilded palaces and sponsoring conflicts overseas, while the economy and the country suffers. but dissent in iran is only tolerated to a point. uniformed and plain—clothes police clashed with protesters and made dozens of arrests in several cities. i don't expect the protest to snowball as of now because the regime has a response in place. and if the protesters don't stop, ultimately the reaction will become heavy—handed. we're just not there yet. in a response on twitter
president trump warned iran that the world was watching, saying that tehran should respect people's rights to express themselves. comments that the iranian foreign ministry called opportunistic and deceitful. the government has warned people not to take part in what it calls illegal protests. organising instead large, pro—regime counterdemonstrations, in support of the supreme leader ayatollah ali khamenei. an end to clerical rule has been a common theme in these protests, some of which are now turning violent. wyre davies, bbc news. a little earlier we spoke to alex vatanka, senior fellow at the middle east institute in washington dc. he said the regime could struggle to contain protests, which are gathering momentum. it is different in
that sense from 2009. put it in context, what happened in 2009 was a fight within the regime against the then president mahmoud ahmadinejad. this time, this is not a family feud, it is coming from street level. can the regime containers, given that socioeconomic conditions are what they are? two of the most famous names in music — ringo starr of the beatles, and barry gibb of the bee gees — are among those awarded knighthoods in the new year honours list. the former deputy prime minister, nick clegg, also receives a knighthood, and darcey bussell, the accomplished ballerina and judge on strictly come dancing, has been made a dame. they're among 1100 people named in the new year honours list,
many of whom have been rewarded for their work in the community. lizo mzimba reports. # twist and shout...# more than 50 years after beatlemania, the fab four‘s drummer has been honoured with a knighthood... # what would you do if i sang...# former bee gee barry gibb said he was humbled and very proud to be made sir barry. # with no—one to love you, you're going nowhere. strictlyjudge darcey bussell, who has occasionally performed on the programme too, is to be made a dame for services to dance. and best—selling riders authorjilly cooper. absolutely knocked out. knocked out — i was thrilled. i couldn't believe it. i mean, suddenly to get a letter, you know, and one thinks "0h, god, it's a bill, a gas bill or something". and it's this heavenly thing, saying "you're a cbe". it's wonderful. # i've got to run away. singer and campaigner marc almond
is made an 0be for services to arts and culture. in the world of sport, sam warburton, who has captained wales and the british and irish lions, is made an 0be. most of those being honoured are ordinary people doing extraordinary work, like efe ezekiel, who acts as a mentorfor young people. of course, young people are everything to me. i'm passionate about them and passionate their life, their well—being and their welfare, so for me to be recognised for my passion is one of the greatest honours ever, and in 2018, the honours committee say they will be looking to particularly recognise individuals who were involved in the response to, and the aftermath of, the london and manchester terror attacks, and the fire at grenfell tower. lizo mzimba, bbc news, buckingham palace. firefighters have been tackling a blaze in a 12—storey block of flats in manchester city centre. the fire spread to multiple floors
of the building onjoiner street. police closed part of the road, and manchester fire and rescue service is asking people to avoid the area, and to keep their doors and windows shut if they are nearby. 0ur correspondent, mark edwardson, sent us this report from the scene. this is church street in manchester. it's at the southern edge of what is called the northern quarter, an up—and—coming part of manchester city centre. the fire broke out this afternoon. firefighters were called after people reported flames licking out of the building from the windows there. the first thing we knew was when our friends, who live on the second floor of the building, phoned us from the netherlands to ask if we had seen the news because their building was on fire. we are looking after their cats for them, feeding them morning and night, and they were very distressed about what is happening, so we said we would come
down and try to find out what is happening. it looked like things were on fire outside the building. quite scary. if you are stuck inside the building and saw the fire spreading outside, it's not good. we know that one person has been taken to hospital suffering the effects of smoke inhalation. the fire and rescue service told us it is too early to speculate about the cause of the blaze, but they have confirmed that an investigation is already underway. younger people will enjoy the biggest "inheritance boom" of any post—war generation, according to a research body that analyses living standards. the resolution foundation says those born in the 80s and early 90s, known as millennials,
will inherit more wealth than previous generations. however, it also estimates that the average age at which those born in the 1980s and ‘90s will come into money will be 61. coming up in a moment, we're joined by viewers on bbc one for a round—up of all the day's news with kate silverton. violence in iran as a wave of protests continues to sweep parts of the country. demonstrators defy the authorities as they gather to denounce the government. reports elsewhere say people have been shot. president trump's upped his support of the demonstrators, saying "the world is watching", and oppressive regimes cannot last forever. also on tonight's programme... ringo starr... ..and barry gibb are among those awarded knighthoods in the new year honours list. younger people will enjoy the biggest "inheritance boom" of any post—war generation, say researchers, but not until their 60s.
and all square in the old firm — a game of missed chances for celtic and rangers. good evening. pockets of violence are breaking out across iran, as anti—government protestors defy warnings from officials and demonstrate for a third day. two people have reportedly been shot dead. at the same time, pro—government rallies have been taking place in the capital tehran — with thousands of people showing their support. the anti—government protests — that started in mashhad and spread to several parts of the country — are about corruption and falling living standards. 0ur correspondent wyre davies reports. three days in and iran's
anti—government protests have turned violent. in the northern city of mashhad, demonstrators demanding an end to hardline clerical rule set police motorbikes alight and taunted the security services. from dorud in the west, video showed crowds scattering after two protesters were reportedly shot and killed. what began in provincial cities has now spread to the capital tehran and the main university campus. these are worrying signs for the iranian government and the ultraconservative shia clerics, who've ruled over the country since the 1979 revolution. the government response, organising large pro—regime counter demonstrations in support of the supreme leader ayatollah ali
khamenei and warning people not to take part in what it called illegal protests. shouting for the clerics to give him a job, this protester typifies the economic anger that many iranians feel. the last time that people protested like this was almost a decade ago and some fear similar violent consequences now. this is a regime that knows how to manage its people and has a monopoly on the use of violence. they effectively demonstrated that in 2009 and i think that most iranians, at least the ones that i have spoken to, in the age of 25—40, have not yetjoined these protests. there's been little international reaction, but responding on twitter, donald trump said the iranian government should respect people's rights to express themselves and warned "the world is watching." but dissent in iran is only tolerated to a point, uniformed
and plain clothes police have made dozens of arrests across the country, a sign the authorities may already be turning the screw. wyre davies, bbc news. two of the most famous names in music — ringo starr of the beatles and barry gibb of the bee gees — are among those awarded knighthoods in the new year honours list. darcey bussell, the accomplished ballerina and judge on strictly come dancing has been made a dame. they're among 1,100 people named in the new year honours list, many of whom have been rewarded for their work in the community. lizo mzimba reports. # twist and shout! # twist and shout... more than 50 years after beatlemania, the fab four‘s drummer has been honoured with a knighthood... # what would you do if i sang... ..recognising ringo starr's half—a—century—long contribution to music. # i get by with a little help from my friends. # tragedy!
former bee gee barry gibb said he was humbled and very proud to be made sir barry. easy, joey, easy now. a knighthood, too, for the creator of war horse, michael morpurgo. strictlyjudge darcey bussell, who has occasionally performed on the programme too, is made a dame for services to dance. i'm dickie roper. i'm the night manager. those being made cbes, the next highest level of award, include actor hugh laurie for services to drama. are you english, pine? and best—selling riders authorjilly cooper. absolutely knocked out. i was thrilled. i couldn't believe it. i mean, suddenly to get a letter, you know, and one thinks, "oh, god, it's a bill, a gas bill or something". and it's this heavenly thing,
saying, "you're a cbe". it's wonderful. hull had a hugely successful year as uk's city of culture. members of the team behind the 12—month celebration have been made cbe and 0bes. # i've got to run away. singer and campaigner marc almond is made an 0be for services to arts and culture. musician and producer wiley, known as the "godfather of grime", is made an mbe. commentator: the pass to warburton. brilliant catch by the captain! in the world of sport, sam warburton, who has captained wales and the british & irish lions, is made an 0be. england cricket players have been recognised, including anya shrubsole. her bowling helped england win the world cup. it really has been a landmark year, and it says a huge amount about the whole tournament and women's cricket in general, i think. it shows how much the game has grown and just how big that tournament was, that it would be recognised
in something like the new year honours list. most of those being honoured are ordinary people doing extraordinary work, like efe ezekiel, who acts as a mentorfor young people. of course, young people are everything to me. i'm passionate about them and passionate about their life, their well—being and their welfare. so for me to be recognised for my passion is one of the greatest honours ever, so i'm in complete gratitude and appreciation. the majority of honours do go to people who aren't in the public eye but who have given exceptional service. and, in 2018, the honours committee say they will be looking to particularly recognise individuals who were involved in the response to, and the aftermath of, the london and manchester terror attacks, and the fire at grenfell tower. lizo mzimba, bbc news, buckingham palace. well, there's also been some criticism about the number of politicians in the new year honours list. with me is our political correspondent, chris mason.
chris, what's being said and what's the situation? here are some of the names. graeme grady, conservative mp, who chairs the 1922 committee of conservatives, who has a knighthood. another senior member of the committee, the vice—chair, cheryl gillan, made a dame. that committee is very important within the conservative party. they play a crucial role in leadership contests. notjust conservative mps, but labour mps. the deputy speaker of the commons being knighted. former lib dem leader nick clegg. criticism comes from the snp which say that they are obvious political appointments. worth pointing out that there are independent honours committees who decide who gets these awards. there
we re decide who gets these awards. there were more politicians in dame hoods and knighthood this year than last, but in the birthday honours in the summer, there were not any politicians getting on then. this year, like last, those in politics making up fewer than 2% of those on the list overall. thank you for that. firefighters have tackled a blaze in a twelve—storey block of flats in manchester city centre. the fire spread to several levels of the building before being brought under control. a dozen fire engines were deployed. one person has been taken to hospital. younger people will enjoy the biggest "inheritance boom" of any post—war generation according to a research body that analyses living standards. the resolution foundation says those born in the 80s and early 90s, known as millennials, will inherit more wealth than previous generations. there's a snag, though they are not likely to benefit from the money until their 60s, as our business correspondent joe lynam explains. we've long been told that millennials, aged between 17 and 35, face major financial challenges. they are paid less
than their parents, they won't have generous pensions, and they can't get on the housing ladder. so we know there's a big generational wealth divide. millennials are accumulating wealth at a far slower rate than the baby boomers before them did. we've looked at whether inheritances are going to solve that problem for them. and they will play a really big role. there will be lots more money coming down in the coming decades. and it will be a bit more widely spread because of high homeownership amongst the parents. but this isn't the silver bullet to millennials' living standards woes. it's match day at sheffield united and there is always a sense of anticipation. but when it comes to money this study suggests that young people will have to wait until they're in their 60s before inheriting anything, but are they worried? you put so much work in at uni and so much into yourjob, and you're not going to be able to own a house and have a house for your family and i think that's difficult knowing that. knowing that you've got to wait that length of time in the future. well, we'll inherit it but it was never our money to begin with.
exactly. so i don't suppose it makes a difference. whether we've got to wait or not. unless of course i spend it all before i go. laughter which may happen. it may happen. although millennials are set to inherit more than any previous generation thanks to booming property values, that assumes that the inheritance is not spent on social care for their parents or themselves. soaring property prices, especially in the south—east, lie behind the expected surge in inheritances in the future. so if you're in your 30s or younger, and your parents own property, then you can expect to inherit something substantial. but if your parents don't own any major assets, then your future wealth prospects don't look as good. joe lynam, bbc news. with all the sport — here's 0lly foster at the bbc sport centre. hello. celtic will take an eight—point lead at the top of the scottish premiership into the new year
and the three—week winter break. it was goaless against rangers in the old firm match, but it was far from dull. adam wild reports. if this has been the season of peace and goodwill, it was never likely to continue here. few footballing cities are divided quite like glasgow, and in recent times these two have really been further apart. it's more than seven years since rangers won at celtic in the league, and that didn't look too much like changing. james forrest just a fingertip away. rangers would have plenty to thank their goalkeeper for, keeping celtic out time and again. but fortunes change. in this derby at least rangers fans only had to wait until the second half. now it was then making the chances and forcing the saves. brilliant by
craig gaudin, and his next was astonishing. neither keeper deserve to be beaten, and ultimately, neither was. the great rivalry ends for another year, both missing the chance to have the final word, both with plenty on which to reflect. there were seven games in the premier league today, highlights are coming up on match of the day after the news, or you can get the results right now. liverpool came from behind to beat leicester. virgil van dijk was in the stands at anfield after his £75 million transfer from southampton. mohammed salah scored twice in the second half as they won 2—1. bournemouth won by the same scoreline at home to everton. chelsea beat stoke 5—0 and are up to second. matches at huddersfield, manchester united and newcastle were goaless. while swansea, under new manager carlos carvahal, are off the bottom of the table beating watford 2—1 england's cricketer‘s have avoided an ashes whitewash, but victory in the fourth test was beyond them. they had hope heading into the final day in melbourne, but tookjust the two wickets, and with an unbeaten century from the australia captain steve smith, the match was drawn. england have already lost
the series and trail 3—0. to come off three very difficult games and put in a performance like thatis games and put in a performance like that is very pleasing, and that's what we're about as a side. i think thatis what we're about as a side. i think that is a fair reflection of what we are capable of as a team. saracens are up to second in the rugby union premiership after beating worcester. there were also wins for gloucester and newcastle. almost 78,000 were at twickenham as harlequins scored seven tries against northampton. tim visser with two of them in the 50—21win. that's seven league defeats in a row for saints. glasgow's pro—14 derby match against edinburgh was stopped for half an hour when a fire alarm saw the scotstoun stadium evacuated during the first half. glasgow eventually won the match 17—0 — leejones with the game's only try. don't forget the bbc sports website for much more on all those stories, and also news of serena williams‘ return to the court and phil taylor's

anti government demonstrations in iran are reported to have turned violent in a number of towns and cities across the country after three days of protests, despite warnings from the authorities. beatles drummer ringo starr and bee gees singer barry gibb receive knighthoods, while strictly judge darcey bussell is made a dame, in the new year honours. firefighters in manchester say a blaze at a block of flats millennials will benefit from the biggest "inheritance boom" of any post—war generation, but it will be too late to solve wealth inequality, according to a new report. i was telling tall tales all the time.
