you are more likely to see it tomorrow before it turns cloudy and colder next week. now, as we go through this evening and tonight, it is mainly dry and clear, though there is still some cloud around eastern parts of scotland and north—east england. the cloud, though, clearing from northern ireland where it's been a rather grey day. the south—easterly breeze means temperatures don't fall as far as if they would if it was calm, but still close to freezing in the coldest spots and you could wake up to a touch of frost in the morning, you're more likely to wake up to a gloriously sunny start and for it to stay that way throughout the day. a bit of cloud still flirting with parts of eastern scotland and the far north east of england. still the same south—easterly breeze, still the same sort of temperatures as we've seen today, that's around 9—12d. now, the breeze is a noticeable feature of the weather, but it gets stronger into next week and that means these temperatures, it's the last we'll see of widely double figures. widely single figures in the weekend and feeling colder still in the wind. hello, this is bbc news with lu kwesa burak. the headlines.

england come from behind to save their blushes against the brave blossoms of japan. there was a scare for wales in cardiff but seven second half tries saw them thrash tonga by 50 points. and england's cricketers are three wickets away from a series victory in sri lanka. good evening, what a day of rugby union, all four home nations are playing autumn internationals. the latest from scotland against south africa in just a moment and also a big win for wales, but we'll start at twickenham where england struggled against japan. eddiejones's team were in all sorts of trouble against his former side. in only their second meeting, it was the visitors who rose to the occasion and they led by five
points midway through the second half, but three late england tries saw them win 35—15. ben croucher reports. to twickenham for japan's brave blossoms. a team book to entertain a world group rather than dominate. bravery does not win tackles for an england scored as early as the third minute. so you could west right as and means turning of counties for easy tries. england were wilting with michael leach, a flanker, evading three tackles and elliott to lead the roses something to ponder at half—time. earlier than they planned the first string was called upon and that stew period fitness allowed them to carry on. he stretched his way past japan for a try on debut. if they turned on the boosters,
dylan hartley turned bulldozer for the final score. for a0 minutes at least a brave japan entertained but england's late dominance for more than enough. the finish of this game had a massive impact for us. a bit disappointed got to that really. you need the squad of 23 to win test matches. all week we had a really good attitude. and sometimes you get seduced at the start of the game and we scored the first try and subconsciously thought the game would be easy. but then points get against you, the referee gives them a few calls and then we had a bit of a panic there for a while. we got to half—time, regroup, i was pleased with how we went about the second half. i think we won the second half 25—0. so, a mild panic for england at twickenham, wales had a scare in cardiff not that you'd know it from the scoreline.
they thrashed tonga by 7a points to 24. the scores were actually level early in the second half as the pacific islanders stormed back into the match. wales had plenty in reserve though, seven tries and 50 unanswered points. here's our sports correspondentjoe wilson. tonga wore red in cardiff. they dominated proceedings before kick—off. once the game began there we re waves kick—off. once the game began there were waves of welsh attacks and navy blue. or as described officially a much changed him there was a familiar man on the wing. liam williams. a vintage vintage —— vintage vision is that the game. no ca rd vintage vision is that the game. no card was shown to the tongan player here. wales suddenly found themselves with a game in their hands. pongo bulldozed a try in the first half then he grabbed the paw dodge ball saw the light in front of
him and use every thing he had to keep going. that was a great moment for cop —— tonga and the scores were briefly level early in the second half. but wales took over. when the going got tough they got better. step that offends was spotted and they kicked accordingly. the depth of strength and character through this —— fuelled this welsh squad. the lasting memory could've been the support and teamwork that led to this try. liam williams in the mix. alan davis to finish it off. they held their nerve against australia, they cut was against tonga. whales are enjoying the autumn. joe wilson, bbc news. i think we just did the basics pretty well. even though we scored really good tries and good off—loads is essentially the basics of our game today were pretty good and against any team you have to do that in international rugby. pretty please with the effort.
we are fully aware that next week will present a much different challenge and a much bigger challenge. i think for the lads who played today it was a good set for us. they are into the second half at murrayfield, scotland are playing south africa. gregor townsend made six changes to his 15 after last weekend's win against fiji, the sprinboks scored a try after just five minutes, with centrejesse kriel powering his way through the scottish defence. but scotland fought back throughout the half. this brilliant set move from a line—out saw hamish watson cross the line to level the scores just before the break. this game is live on bbc2. the springboks having their advantage and have a narrative edition make it 20—0. —— 20 had been 20. three points ahead. another one to go six points ahead. that's a post up there is nothing in this
match. wife on bbc two right now scotla nd match. wife on bbc two right now scotland trailing the springboks 20 - 23. scotland trailing the springboks 20 — 23. just about 20 minutes up playing that game. australia were comfortable winners over italy. 26—7 the final score in padua. winger marika koroibete scoring a couple of tries for the wallabies. it maintains the australians unblemished record against the azzurri. isaid it i said it was a great day for international rugby union. the action doesn't really stop. the top two ranked nations face each other in dublin in the next 15 minutes. six nations grand slam champions ireland facing world champions new zealand. the all blacks came from behind to narrowly beat england last week. they've won the last two world cups and have only lost once in 30 matches to ireland, that defeat came two years ago in chicago. regardless of what happens on
saturday it will give us an idea of how we are going i suppose. i wouldn't worry too much about what happened yesterday, it is what happens today. the world cup is quite a wild way yet. so let's see what kind of fork can put in here. it isa it is a massive game against —— a massive game for us. it is a massive challenge. it is very exciting but at the same time you want to play against the best teams in the world but with that comes little bits of i'iei’ves. stay with us, plenty to to come, including... it's a good day for english golfers. but not tommy fleetwood at the world tour championship in dubai. and a huge win for alexander zverev against roger federer at the atp finals, but why was the german booed at the end of it? it is in the rules that we have to
replay the point. let's bring you right up to date with all the cricket. it could be a nervy final day in kandy. england's cricketers are three wickets away from their first series win in sri lanka for 17 years. the hosts need 75 runs to win the second test and keep the series the alive. patrick gearey was watching the action on day four. never mind the scorecard, you could read the match from england's faces this morning. they were grinning because the ball was spinning and they had a lead of 300. enterjack leach and thanks to this, they started well. ten minutes later, jack leach suckered another one. keatonjennings made this stick, reacting in a fraction of a second. another batsman followed. there was some rebuilding to do for the sri lankans. he did it slowly and carefully. that was his 50. england had their first problem.
over tojennings. even when he could not take the catch but he made sure that someone else could. caught with a little help from his friends. sri lanka needed steadying and angelo mathews seized the initiative. he is more than used to these situations and surfaces. he took his time more than halfway to their targets when moeen ali thought that he had the dangerous batsman caught, he did not so much appeal as beg. the umpire did not think he hit it. the umpire said otherwise. out. their joy was soon swept away. sri lanka needed only 82 for victory with five wickets in hand. just after the break, angelo mathews was out. the game had turned once more. leach back into the breach. he got his man. as he came off, the covers came on. the drama halted by the weather but england are almost home and dry. the final day's play gets under way atjust after 4:00 tomorrow morning.
if england do win they'll look back at several key moments in the field today, not least keatonjennings cat—like reactions at short leg that led to two dismissals. i think at the time you get a feeling of what they are looking to do. you watch his movements and you match his movements of where he is trying to hit the ball. you tried to then get in the way. i go down to pedal and i set off running. i ended up having it right at me. i generally try to catch it and itjust hit me hard and straight off to him. i'm just really pleased with it. it was a brilliant bit of fielding. well angelo mathews' 88 for sri lanka has still given them a sniff of victory. 75 more runs required with three wickets in hand. he thinks they can do it. it is evenly paced. it was
unfortunate that i got out at a very crucial time. but we still have a batter. he can bat and also sherlock walk a half men who can contribute. we are not out of the game. if we can get one good partnership in, then we can end with the way. —— sri la nka then we can end with the way. —— sri lanka can contribute. well you can follow the finals day's play on the bbc sport website and that's where you can see the cricket social. isabelle westbury has been part of that team for this test and reckons an england victory could be the start of something big forjoe root‘s side. i'm a bit rested in the same that they will win because we have had a match where it has been a poor coaster. it has added and flowed. each day either england or sri lanka have been on top at each session.
each 30 minutes it is been a seesaw. i think while it could happen in the final session they have a dick weber at the moment who has been sweeping all around the park. 75 runs to get, three—week and —— three wickets to get. view back then but never say never. but you can't be sure of of course. where do you think they are now as a test site? that started winning away. they had that big taboo of not being able to win abroad before that test win in the last match against sri lanka. they haven't won a test match away from home in 13 years. we knew they had been quite strong at home. i think sri lanka aren't considered to be one of the top test nations so it is a good one to win and get that under the belt. they have west indies next we re the belt. they have west indies next were not up there with your india's australia's. but again you say it easy, nothing is easy and test
wicket he stays but likely a softer away series and winter series, if they can get two series wins and come back you have the ashes next year, it kind of feel as though come back you have the ashes next year, it kind of feel as thoutho rudy is hitting his straps as captain and they try to cement the different positions. this could be the start of something quite lovely. ——joel the start of something quite lovely. —— joel root hitting his straps. just staying with cricket, england's women are sure of a semifinal spot at the t20 world cup in the caribbean after beating south africa last night. they have one group game left against the west indies to decide top spot. lam i am really looking forward to it. our supporters are also looking forward to the challenge of the atmosphere. i tell them aside to rest their voices for tomorrow. i think with the credit would be a great atmosphere, something we should enjoy whether we are on the
winning side or the losing side. so far in the tournament, it's been brilliant. india have beaten australia to top group b in the competition. india made 167—8 off their 20 overs. australia couldn't get a perntership going and their chase subsided to 119 for nine. it means the winner of england's game against the west indies tomorrow will play australia in the semi—finals. now to golf, and danny willet holds a share of the lead after the third round of the world tour championship in dubai. he's level with american patrick reed on 1a under par. the leaderboard looks good for english golfers. jordan smith is just one shot behind on 13 under, while a seven—under par 65 brought lee westwood up to tied fourth. but a disappointing round for tommy fleetwood means that francesco molinari is almost guaranteed to end the year as the european number one — as our golf correspondent iain carter explains. in terms of anyone looking
for a refill and sort of cliff edge climax to the european tour season that looks highly unlikely now because tommy fleetwood carded a 7k today and tumbled down the leaderboard. way too many players to retake on the final day. as a result the race to dubai will go to francesco molinari although he is on having the best week. today he shot high and tommy fleetwood. fleetwood would have to win this bp world tour championship tomorrow to have any chance at taking the race to dubai and defending that crown and there are just too many shots to be made up, too many players to beat and overtake. i think we can safely say that francesco molinari even though he is not having his best week will win the race to dubai for the first time. the 100 club will have to wait a little longer for roger federer. defeat to alexander zverev in the semi—finals at the season ending atp finals means his bid
for a century of career title goes on. for zverev, it was the biggest win of his career and and he will face either novak djokovic or kevin anderson in tomorrow's final, but the german was left apologising to his rival and the crowd, as paul frostick reports. roger federer is a six—time champion at the atp tour finals. success in london has come eight times at wimbledon too. this a city where he enjoys lifting trophies. and the crowd loved them too at 37 many wonderjust how long federer crowd loved them too at 37 many wonder just how long federer can crowd loved them too at 37 many wonderjust how long federer can go on. his opponent aleksander or two is tipped as a future grand slam champion and he is looking ever more likewise. —— alexander zverev. the german was often inspired, grabbing the first sets only break of serve and went on to take it. then there
was some second set drama. when a ball boy accidentally dropped a ball behind federer, alexandeererev legitimately stop playing the point. but the crowd did not like it and the boos echoed around the o2 arena. first of all i want to apologise for the frustration and tie—breaker. the ball boy dropped the ball so it is in the rules that we have the plate and replay the point. booing. the incident did not stop its pursuit of this tournament. he can now look forward to the atp tour finals final. while federer‘s wafer 100 singles titles is on hold until next year. six—time grand slam winner champion boris becker had said beforehand that federer‘s match against zverev was a tie between the king and the pretender.
he also tipped the german as a future world number one. but what did he make of that incident? he told the bbc‘s sue barker that despite the boos, zverev might have won some new fans today. it was a controversial and to what was a fantastic match. and you really thought for alexander zverev and the crowd positive reaction in that interview. unfortunate for me because it was the best reaction of the —— because it was the best reaction of the -- -- because it was the best reaction of the —— —— messenger. he came alive. this controversial call in the tie—breaker when sasha this controversial call in the tie—brea ker when sasha interrupted the flow —— full because the ball boy dropped the ball and then the ball went to the court and they did everything by the rules and the umpire come for it and he doubled the umpire. but the british crowd design of all the details of the rule and i understand that everyone loves roger federer and wants him to win. but they should not be against alexander zverev. it was a small portion of the crop but they made
their presence felt. it was lovely how the rest of the tennis fans applauded the young man because as you could see he was physically very upset by the reaction. he did not know what to send the one hand. on one hand he was super happy winning this match when he wanted to respect his dash expresses happiness. but i thought once he quieted down and the crowd really understood what this moment was about, they turned it around and he may have won a couple of new fans today. and this moment, while. he has really turned his career around. he has been one of those we have been talking about as a star of the future but you really get the feeling he's making the bra kes get the feeling he's making the brakes are now. for the lax couple yea rs brakes are now. for the lax couple years he has been called the next number one which is a high doing to live up to. he was number three last year, he consolidated his form with another great season finishing who knows. he was numberfive another great season finishing who knows. he was number five so another great season finishing who knows. he was numberfive so he stood up to the plate and perform at one of the superstars butjust let the proof and play against the
greatest of all time and he did. he did and he may face novakjokes are strong because djokovic is facing kevin anderson. djokovic is looking almost unbeatable those in the? the second half of the stephen we call him and the wall djokovic. because he can touch any ball. he was the only player going through and had not lost. he looks like the favourite. elsewhere at the atp finals, jamie murray and partner bruno soares missed out on the final after losing to american pair mike bryan and jack sock. they were beaten 6—3, 4—6, 10—4 to go out at this stage of the competition for the third straight year. in the women's super league, bristol city condemned liverpool to a third straight defeat thanks to first half goals from lucy graham and ella rutherford. graham put the home side in front after 16 minutes with this powerful header
and they doubled their lead just five minutes later — liverpool keeper anke preuss couldn't hold on to a long—range shot and rutherford was quickest to react for her first goal for the club. liverpool did pull one back, but city held on for the win that sees them climb up to sixth in the league. scotland face albania in the nations league this evening. much of the build up to the game has been dominated by the number of withdrawals from the scottish squad. nine players in total have pulled out but alex mcleish says there's nothing sinister about it. it's just something that it is not an arbor control. it is just a little bit of a freak. nothing sinister. if you're trying to find a story out of this, then there is
nothing there. it is just bad luck. the guys have played at very high levels. they get pushed to the boundaries. they go to the red zone in training in certain moments and some of them picked up knocks and injuries and unfortunately for us we have had a lot of call offs. let's have a quick look now at some of the day's other sports stories. yamaha's maverick vinyales will start on pole for the final motogp race of the season in valencia. he finished ahead of suzuki's alex rns and ducati's andrea dovizioso. honda's recent five time world champion marc marquez recovered from a crash to finish fifth fatest. and his shoulder popped out as well. great britain opened their hockey champions trophy match with a 2—2 draw against hosts china. lily owsley scored the equaliser. they face australia next at 6am tomorrow morning. ronnie o'sullivan is through to the final of the northern ireland open after a thrilling deciding frame victory over mark selby.
in a high quality contest, this incredible fluke in the decider proved pivotal for o'sullivan, as he cleared up to take the match on the final black. great britian‘s sam ingram couldn't bring home the 100kg category title at thejudo world championships in portugal as he was beaten by georgia's zviad gogotchuri in the final. now, how is this for a festive—themed prize? the fis world cup slalom season got under way in levi, finland, today and it wasn'tjust medals up for grabs inside the arctic circle. the winner gets a reindeer! here is winner mikaela shiffrin with her brand new pet, alongside who else, but father christmas! makes you feel all christmasy and hungry too. that's all from sportsday. we'll have more at 7:30. hello. i will be looking at the
weather in the arctic circle in just a moment. first of all what a glorious day it has been. most of us it has been very sunny out but we start off on a cloudy note. you can see how the cloud melted away in most areas. it was stubborn for northern ireland and eastern scotland. but still what a glorious day it was. this was the scene in roy bridge in the highlands of scotla nd roy bridge in the highlands of scotland and. and how about this for a sunset in scotland. what a beautiful picture. all weather patterns are interlinked around the planet and it is been a warm date in the arctic circle near north iceland. above normal for the the arctic circle near north iceland. above normalfor the time of year. the warm air going into the arctic which will be responded by
chucking cold air out across europe. that will come our way and as we head towards the end of the week ahead, temperature will be colder. colder weather is on the way. further we have clear skies. we have lost the cloud and northern ireland but it will be a cold night and a really cold one if it not —— were not for those winds going to the rest of the night. temperatures in the towns and cities too, 4 degrees. perhaps in the highlands we can see cha pters perhaps in the highlands we can see chapters get below freezing where the windfalls like. high pressure still on the scene for sunday. dragging easterly winds and bringing a lot of dry air. the significance of that is it will have clear and skinny skies again. notice the clock for northern ireland so you will be joining in on the sunny story and the cloud we do have the within eastern scotland should get out of the way. most of us will have a fine day. will be a clue priest growing. working for highs between ten and 12
celsius. we will be getting into monday, seeing cloud moving in from the north sea. around the north sea coast, and eastern england the cloud will be thickening. it will start to feel quite a bit colder. but not as cold as it would do on tuesday. look at these temperatures. four, five celsius. these are the maximum temperatures. the coldest weather across england and wales and again that cloud will bring us out rakes of light rain and drizzle from time to time. in the context of the warm autumn we are saying, it will feel really cold towards the middle part of the week as the temperatures struggle around four or 5 degrees with the coldest weather targeting england and wales. that is your latest weather. this is bbc news, i'm rachel schofield.
the headlines at 7pm. five ministers in theresa may's cabinetjoin forces to try and persuade her to make changes to the draft brexit agreement. there's still the potential to improve on the clarification, and on some of the measures within it. and that is what i'm hoping to be able to help with. more than 1,000 people are reported to be missing in california's deadliest wildfire on record. 71 people are known to have died. donald trump has arrived in the us state to see the damage for himself. it seems that many more people are missing than anyone thought even possible. and i want to be with the firefighters and the fema first responders. and this is the scene live in chico, where the president trump will be seeing the damage for himself.
