kicked—off last night, with hosts france easing to a dominant 4—0 win over south korea. a new law to protect service animals comes into force today. nicknamed finn's law after a police dog who was stabbed, we'll be meeting finn in the studio in the next half hour. and at 10.30, the travel show follows tony giles — an independent blind backpacker — as he heads to ethiopia. one of the frontrunners in the race to become the next prime minister, michael gove, has admitted taking cocaine on several occasions, 20 years ago. in an interview with the daily mail, mr gove said he deeply
regretted his actions and insisted it shouldn't rule him out of the contest to succeed theresa may, which begins next week. dominic raab, who is also running to become conservative party leader, said he thought mr gove deserved a second chance. i'm not sure i want to be in the business of commenting on other candidates, but i think michael set out that he made a mistake, it was a long time ago. people willjudge it as it is. but i believe in a second chance society more generally. it is ultimately for mps and colleagues and members to decide. but i certainly don't cede barring him from this race in any way. do think it damaged tim? that's not for me to say first of actually i rather admire his honesty. and what do you think your fellow mps will make of it? and then we will talk about the members of the party. because there isa members of the party. because there is a difference, isn't the? i'm not a commentator on this race, i'm a participate. you could be both. some of your colleagues have managed both. it is a kind invitation but all that other people make up their
minds. the broader thing is, i've talked a lot in this race about a second chance society. people make mistakes, put their hand up and be honest about it, we want to give them a chance to turn it around. for someone them a chance to turn it around. for someone in michael's position are to be different, but i don't think it bars him from this race. our political reporter peter saulljoins me now. these stories are often hard to gauge the potential impact. can you give us an idea of why mr gill decided to reveal this? give us an idea of why mr gill decided to revealthis? it give us an idea of why mr gill decided to reveal this? it came out in an interview with the daily mail. he insists this happened more than two decades ago. and his message in that interview is, judge me on my record in parliament and not what i may have done before that. but michael gove is clearly one of the frontrunners in this leadership contest, which really gets under way this week, with the first round of voting taking place on thursday. he may feel this is about clearing the
decks, putting it out there, past misdemeanours. and i suppose he will still rely on the support of a lot of his colleagues in the conservative party. she does have quite a lot of support within parliament. the question for him is whether if he makes it to the final two, the conservative membership at large take a more dim view of his activities in the past. the clue is in the name. they are conservative members, and they? indeed. i suppose the other impact of this is that we now have a range of candidates who in their youth, now have a range of candidates who in theiryouth, in now have a range of candidates who in their youth, in the last 10—15 yea rs, in their youth, in the last 10—15 years, some further back, have acknowledged that they have used illegal drugs. he was just a secretary, subsequently, in part of his cabinet career. and that raises questions about the ability of somebody to legislate in those sorts of areas, and the credibility of the
argument they are advancing. this is quite a serious issue. you have the metropolitan police commissioner, cressida dick, saying middle—class drug users should take greater responsibility for the violence that happens down the supply line. this is something that happens up and down through the country, in the cou nty down through the country, in the county line networks, and in the countries where cocaine comes from. but michael gove is not alone in this. rory stewart, the international development secretary, has admitted, apologised, for taking opium at a wedding he was out in iranis opium at a wedding he was out in iran 15 years ago. jeremy hunt took a cannabis in a form when he was backpacking in india, and in the past boris johnson backpacking in india, and in the past borisjohnson is to answer questions about claims he took cocaine. he was on have i got news for you as a young politician in 2005, and said, yes, iwas for you as a young politician in 2005, and said, yes, i was given it, and it went up my nose and i sneeze, it may have been icing sugar i was
given. definitely these past misdemeanours of candidates could become quite a feature of this contest given how wide a field it is. the different contenders will wa nt to is. the different contenders will want to throw them at their competitors. donald trump says the us and mexico have reached a deal on illegal migration. the american president had threatened to impose tariffs on all mexican imports, unless action was taken to stem the flow of illegal immigrants crossing into the united states. here's our washington correspondent, chris buckler. the problems at this border have been the source of deep divisions between the us and mexico. the surge of migrants trying to cross into the united states here led president trump to threaten tariffs on the huge amount of trade that also comes across from the mexican side. with just days to go, the tariffs have been avoided, much to mexico's relief. translation: an agreement has been reached between the
governments of mexico and the united states, with which, as you surely already know, tariffs will not be implemented on monday. on twitter, president trump said the tariffs we re president trump said the tariffs were indefinitely suspended. and that mexico had agreed to take strong that mexico had agreed to take strong measures that mexico had agreed to take strong measures to stem the tide of migration through mexico to america's southern border. in the last week the mexico government has made a point of showing it is doing more to try to deterrent groups from making their way from central america. it has promised to deploy thousands of members of its national guard to mexico's southern border with guatemala as part of a crackdown on smuggling and human trafficking. there had been three days of talks at the white house while donald trump was in europe, but the agreement was not signed off until he returned to washington. the president has long promised his supporters that he would address concerns about illegal immigration.
he will see this as a significant step forward, and by saying that he is indefinitely suspending tariffs, president trump may be warning that he is threatening them again if he does not see the number of migrants fall. health officials are investigating the deaths of three hospital patients in manchester and liverpool, following an outbreak of listeria, which has been linked to pre—packed sandwiches. three other people are seriously ill. production at the factory where the sandwiches were made has been stopped. public health england says the risk to the public is low. we hope there will be no more cases. one of the problems with his particular infection is the long incubation period. it can be three orfour incubation period. it can be three or four weeks. incubation period. it can be three orfour weeks. in terms incubation period. it can be three or four weeks. in terms of the numbers, we are just watching. the head of the international monetary fund has warned that the world's financial system could be significantly disrupted by giant technology firms. christine lagarde said the financial
system's payment and settlement arrangements risk being controlled by a handful of tech companies with products based on big data and artificial intelligence. ms lagarde was speaking on the sidelines of a meeting injapan of g20 finance ministers. technology firms, very large ones, that will eventually be disruptive in the financial landscape, because they will be using a lot of their ample resources, as well as massive access to data, in order to penetrate a field where there is market share up for grabs. the actor olivia colman, and tv adventurer bear grylls, are among a host of famous names to be recognised in this year's queen's birthday honours list. theyjoin hundreds of members of the public to be honoured for contributions to the community, as lizo mzimba reports. olivia colman. academy award winner olivia colman
says she is thrilled to have been made a commander of the order of the british empire for services to drama. now is the winter of our discontent... simon russell beale has received a knighthood for his acting work. in the world of music, performer and actor alfie boe becomes an obe for services to music and charity. while the grammy— and brit—nominated performer m.i.a becomes an mbe. but of course, the majority of the honours have gone to people who aren't in the public eye. people like nimco ali, who has become an obe for her work campaigning against female genital mutilation. i spoke out because i was hurt that 20 years after i was subjected to fgm, girls in the uk were still at risk. and now we have a decade to make sure we save the most vulnerable girls on the planet.
15 foster carers have been made mbes, including gordon and brenda potter, who have looked after hundreds of children. something we have enjoyed doing for so long has actually won us this award. i would hate never to have done it. i am very proud of the award but i'm glad i have done it. and liverpool street cleaner tommy mcardle receives a british empire medalfor services to the community. he is just one of hundreds being recognised for the work that they do that benefits so many others. in a moment we'll speak to musician andrew roachford, who's been made an mbe in the queen's birthday honours. he was a driving force behind the band roachford and a singer in the supergroup mike and the mechanics. before we catch up with him, let's hear a bit of one of his biggest hits,
"cuddly toy". you got to feel for a baby # yeah, you got to feel from a baby # yeah, you got to feel from a baby # give me some love.# hgppy # give me some love.# happy memories. andrew joins # give me some love.# happy memories. andrewjoins us from berlin. congratulations. thank you, good morning! how much of a surprise was it? in the industry somebody who has been working for so long at such a high level is often recognised. has been working for so long at such a high level is often recognisedlj can't a high level is often recognised.” can't explain the magnitude of the surprise. i was in the studio, finishing off a new album, and i heard the news. it was one of the most surreal days in my life. i don't take it lightly. so many great artists and musicians i know where they an accolade like this, and i'm surprised that it came to me. i am
honoured. do you know why you were nominated? because somebody would have had to thought, it is about time andrew was recognised us up do they give you any clue?” time andrew was recognised us up do they give you any clue? i actually have no idea! i am very grateful, like i say. big surprise come out of the blue. my mum is really happy, so that's really important to me. was she the first person that was told? she is the first person i told. my brother and my mum. she is the first person i told. my brotherand my mum. she she is the first person i told. my brother and my mum. she has invested so much time and energy into me having a musical education. that meant a lot to me. your mum and dad, from the caribbean originally, you we re from the caribbean originally, you were brought up in south london. how important was that period as a child to the music that you developed? and also even to getting into music at all? when i was growing up, as a
child, my parents are from the caribbean, it was rare to see black people, especially in the classical music feel that i grew up in. and so it was very significant that i made headway in that world is a person of caribbean descent. and again, visible recognition of the contribution the community has made over more than half a century. particularly in london, but also more widely around the uk. and obviously the impact of the music internationally as well. we forget sometimes how big an export industry for this country successful musicians like you are. in a sense, it isa musicians like you are. in a sense, it is a reward both for your musical talent but also for the amount of wealth you have helped generate for this country. when i think about how small an island it is, comparatively england is a small place, britain is, and it has contributed so much music around the world. the beatles
and the stones and stuff like that, that really change the face of music forever. and i think it is also to do with the fact that the culture is so diverse in england, more than anyone else that i can think of on the planet. one of the dangers of honours is that people think of it asa honours is that people think of it as a kind of pinnacle of the career. presumably you as a performer and musician are on tour again, presumably you are not thinking that you have reached the end of your musical career. you got a lot more you want to give, is that fair? that is fair. all my heroes, you do it because it is your passion for stub your career ends, but your life doesn't —— by your career ends when your life does! i'll be touring and continuing. it is very much an
ongoing thing for me. and the passion hasn't diminished? now, it gets stronger. it might be sir andrew rochford in a few years' time! enormous congratulations. i hope you enjoy the ceremony full stop andrew roachford joining me from berlin. the headlines on bbc news. michael gove — one of the frontrunners for the conservative leadership — says he ‘deeply regrets‘ taking cocaine in the past. us president donald trump lifts the threat of tariffs on imports from mexico after its government promises to act over migrants, asylum seekers and border security. health officials launch an investigation into the deaths of three hospital patients in manchester and liverpool who ate pre—packed sandwiches linked to an outbreak of listeria.
sport, and time for a full round up from the bbc sport centre. their women‘s world cup gets under way and we get a look at germany, one of the lead ranked countries. and we can follow the progress of france who started their campaign in style, beating south korea 4—0 in front of a sell—out crowd. i! million also watched on tv. in scale, they promised football boppers migrator show. that takes planning, including on the pitch. france are among the favourites, especially when up against south korea. and here‘s why. especially when up against south korea. and here's why. the opening night of the world cup finals in
2019! the biggest star with the beginning so perfect it was almost choreographed. almost. but football isn‘t a predictable game, and now even when you score you are not entirely sure. france thought they had a second, but this is the first women‘s tournament to use the ar. the decision, somewhat belatedly, was offside. a minor delay. they have at 6‘1" is the tallest player player in the tournament, and before the break we saw an aerial encore. head and shoulders above, just like the team. for a time in the second half it seemed they were too co mforta ble. half it seemed they were too comfortable. they allowed south korea a fleeting moment. it passed all too quickly. she knew she wouldn‘t get a better chance. many of this french side play club football for leon, europe is my dominant team, including their captain, who goes by the name of
henry. her goal already feels like a defining one. hosting a tournament weighs heavy on some teams, branch, however, are owning their stage. —— france are owning the stage. ito a clu b we france are owning the stage. ito a club we have germany against china. scotla nd club we have germany against china. scotland get their world cup campaign under way against england in nice tomorrow first of their manager has been made an mbe in the queen‘s honours list. she has been in charge of the national team since 2017 and was rewarded for her services to football, and the wales manager has also been recognised along with english golfer georgia hall. eden hazard said it was a dream to play for real madrid after chelsea confirmed they have agreed a deal to sell him to the spanish side. the exact fee has not been revealed but it could exceed £150 million. republic of ireland drew 1-1 with million. republic of ireland drew 1—1 with denmark in their european qualifier. shane duffy scored the equaliser in the 85th minute.
ireland are top of their group. cricket, england will look to bounce back from their shock defeat when they face bangladesh in cardiff. they are still the tournament favourite. captain eoin morgan says they will have learnt from that loss. games where we have been defeated, probably heavily in the past, we‘ve probably learned the most, because we have still managed to stay in the game. we have remained in headspace were regularly we can still win the game. and that shows probably a lot more to us and to our supporters about what they don‘t see all the time. to our supporters about what they don't see all the time. fingers crossed for the weather in cardiff. in the super league castleford came from behind to beat huddersfield by a single point, 27—26. leeds eased their relegation fears with a 10— is neil ——
their relegation fears with a 10— is neil -- 10-0 their relegation fears with a 10— is neil —— 10—0 victory. that you up—to—date. when finn the police dog was stabbed and seriously hurt while chasing a suspect, the attack could only be treated as criminal damage. now, after a campaign, a new law comes into force today, giving more protection to service animals, and longer, more serious sentences for those who harm them. finnjoins us now with his handler pc dave wardell, who was also injured in the attack. good to have you in the studio. you must be pleased to day has come. todayis must be pleased to day has come. today is incredible. yesterday was my birthday, and what an incredible birthday present. it‘s fantastic. we couldn‘t have done this on our own. the pop stick in getting behind these incredible animals who do amazing work. finn
these incredible animals who do amazing work. firm is a shining example of that. he has been really good, he set up to be introduced to you at home, now he is going to relax. he is an old dog commanded old hero, because he saved your life. yes, i wouldn't be here today if it wasn‘t for finn. we were chasing a robbery suspect through the streets. we caught up with him just as he was about to disappear over a fence. finn pulled him back down, and it was like any other arrest, we had hundreds of arrests at that point, and i was about to tell him what he needed to do for finn to let him go, and at that point he thrust forward towards finn andi point he thrust forward towards finn and i had no idea what he was doing until he relaxed his thrust, the largest knife i‘ve ever seen on the street was coming out of finn‘s chest. my heart stopped, the world stop. finn did not stop, he carried on holding on to him. he put himself in the way of the next thrust which was coming towards me. and undoubtedly save my life. i wouldn‘t
be talking to you today if it wasn‘t for finn. and even after that he still didn‘t let go until back—up arrived. you had me disarm him. i carried him to the van and we went off to the vet. how serious were his injuries? he was stabbed through the lung. she had four holes in his lung. she had four holes in his lung. yet to have open chest surgery. the knife missed his heart by about a centimetre. the pictures from surgery are incredible. they had to remove two sections of long, relatively small of lung. and so tame all back together. he returned to work 11 weeks in one day later, i don his very firstjob back he got a car thief that had run away from a stolen car. it was an incredible journey. it must‘ve been strange for the car thief, because the journey we have been three was very emotional, and i burst into tears as i was arresting him! not often as a
police officer cries as he is arresting you. an incredible story. but all these animals have incredible stories. we should talk about what the law change means. i said in the introduction it means it would be treated similar to an attack on a person. yes, not quite. the animal welfare act is an incredible piece of legislation. but service animals didn‘t fit in it because there are loopholes that mean it wasn‘t suitable for them. so prosecutors were left in a tricky position. quite often they would end up position. quite often they would end up charging for criminal damage, which again is a great piece of legislation, but not for these guys. it's legislation, but not for these guys. it‘s great if i smash a window, but not... and bridging the defendants would often claim they were acting in self—defence, because the animal had attacked them. yes, absolutely. that‘s another reason that the animal welfare act didn‘t work either. but when you look at canada, new zealand, australia, most of america, they have specific laws to
protect service animals. and if we are going to use these animals, and we should because they are incredible, there is no piece of machinery that can do they do. it is right that we protect them. and that is what finn‘s law will do. and we are asking the government to increase the maximum sentences from six months to five years, and if we can do that it will be incredible. and a significant change, that will apply the board. yes, all animal welfare cases. we are calling it finn‘s law, part two. welfare cases. we are calling it finn's law, part two. were almost out of time on the programme, but, bless you, finn. i‘m sorry we are making youjump bless you, finn. i‘m sorry we are making you jump through these hoops, but the viewers really want to see you. no disrespect to dave! is about to say good morning! he is retired now. he is stubby as a family pet. he has had an incredible retirement.
you‘ve been on britain‘s got talent. it was a fantastic experience for us. it enabled us to share his story and talk about service animals with millions of people. we all know about police dogs and we know the military have not, but how big —— we know the military have dogs. but how big a role that they play? everybody gets the dog team out for the local jamboree or whatever, but they are working dogs and dogs that are on the front line. yes, if you think about finn, during his career he had about finn, during his career he had about 300 of his own arrest. and we re about 300 of his own arrest. and were not talking about low level stuff, some serious offences. and most of those are arrests that wouldn‘t have come about any other way. helicopter couldn‘t find them, that of thing. when we were working with police horses at football
matches, they are incredible. the horses and dogs together are fantastic and can achieve things that the humans just can‘t. fantastic and can achieve things that the humansjust can't. and technology is not replacing these animals? ican technology is not replacing these animals? i can imagine a chief co nsta ble animals? i can imagine a chief constable saying, i need to save a bit of money here... i need to cut officers, dogs are lovely to have, but maybe... docs have suffered. we have lost half the strength due to cuts in this country. donald trump went to a company in america that are trying to develop stuff to do some of the sniffer work, and he asked the ceo of that company what the best piece of equipment was, and he said, this? and he said, would you recommend that? and he said, now, i would you recommend that? and he said, now, iwould recommend you recommend that? and he said, now, i would recommend a dog. they are incredible. thank you so much, pc dave, and of course finn. more than a0 years after his first ground—breaking series
of books were released, armistead maupin‘s tales of the city is getting a netflix reboot. the series follows a group of san franciscans in the ‘70s, and features an all—star cast of gay and transgender actors playing the roles — something the author says was a priority. the bbc‘s lgbt correspondent, ben hunte, went to find out more. it is a series that captured people‘s hearts. in books, on radios, on tv, 43 years since maupin‘s tales of the city all began, today it is getting a revival from netflix. but it was not always easy. we had a bomb threat in chattanooga, tennessee. what?! yes, this netflix series is the fourth tv adaptation. in the 90s channel 4 created a show based on the well—loved series of books. it followed a group of san franciscans over several months in the ‘70s and it caused quite a stir when it aired in america. it was the first time americans had seen two men kissing on broadcast television.
it caused an uproar with certain right—wing groups, who petitioned congress and they shut it down, essentially. as a leading series for lgbt people, the actors chosen to play the iconic rules were also important to the author. gay actors playing gay roles, it is a very big topic at the moment. was that one of the priorities for this? yes, it was. there is still an idea in hollywood that the big stars can‘t be gay. i just think that a gay actor can bring something special to the role from their own experience. is it a girl? murray bartlett who plays michael tolliver, ellen page who plays shona hawkins, you can feel the truth of what they are doing. they bring that to the rule. couple of queers walk down the street and nobody knows it, are they still queer?
overfour decades since it first started, the series is still helping lgbt people come to terms with themselves. so, we have seen so many generations of people growing up with your books and now with the tv series and now this netflix series. what is that like to know you have impacted so many people? it‘s thrilling. people say, you helped me realise who i was and how to claim my life, you know. how to live my own truth. that i can help people in that way is still thrilling and there are still plenty of people who need to hear it. tales of the city is available on netflix now. next year‘s early may bank holiday will be moved back by four days, to friday the 8th of may — to coincide with the 75th anniversary of ve day. a weekend of events is being planned in england, wales and northern ireland to mark the end of the second world war in europe.
