joe wilson reports. england! in the historical centre of a global sport, the cricket world cup had, as the song goes, finally come home. but, my, what a staggering journey over a match that stretched everything. when england were bowling, it all seemed pretty straightforward — three wickets for liam plunkett 1a years after his england debut. 2&1— a winning score for new zealand seemed unlikely. but england's chase flopped. england required controlled aggression. ben stokes. this would push you to the edge, to the boundary. commentator: slower ball, now then! trent boult caught the ball, but watch his step, instead of out, it was six. unusual? you've seen nothing yet. nine needed three balls, stokes sprinting, the ball rebounded off his bat,
he didn't know. a glorious two runs plus four more. two needed from the last ball, they dashed, they dived, they made one. commentator: they've got to go quick, they've got to go quick! scores were tied, what now? super over. england scored 15 off their six extra balls. new zealand back to bat. from the last ball of the super over, from the last moment of the most momentous match, they needed two to win. the throw, the stumps, the run out. commentator: england have won the world cup! even the super over was tied, but by virtue of scoring more boundaries in the game, by the tiniest of margins, england have won. at the fan zone in trafalgar square, they understood that. it was all that needed to be known. it was a victory. after so much tension, the release, everywhere. well, this world cup has been shared by many nations, all linked with their love of cricket, but in england cricket passion,
where's the passion? all chant: england! here's the passion! i thought we'd lost it, i thought it was all over, and i was like that, my hands on my head. that is the greatest one—day cricket match of all time. honestly there's no words at the moment. i'm just so gutted. honestly, so gutted. only respect between these two sides, only one winner. fortune favours the brave — well, that's the word that has defined england'sjourney to this. joe wilson, bbc news, lord's. the uk is making a joint appeal with france and germany to donald trump and iran's leaders to ease their standoff over iran's nuclear programme. they say the deal reached with iran could unravel further and everyone involved needed to consider the consequences of their actions. it comes as leaked diplomatic cables reveal that the former british ambassador to washington believed president trump pulled out of the deal to vandalise president obama's legacy. diplomatic correspondent james robbins reports.
most of the current crisis in the gulf can be traced back to iran's controversial nuclear research. britain, france and germany still hope to keep alive the 2015 nuclear deal which limits this work, but president trump abandoned it last year in favour of increased sanctions, and iran says it is now breaching the deal because it's not delivering the promised economic benefits. this evening, theresa may, emmanuel macron and angela merkel released a joint appeal, saying they were concerned by the risk that the nuclear agreement... they go on to urge all countries to pause and consider the possible consequences of their actions. that's likely to infuriate the white house, appearing to equate aspect of united states's hardline policies with those of iran. it comes on the day the mail
on sunday publish more leaked material, saying that president trump axed the nuclear deal despite his predecessor. —— to spite. it's based on controversial reports from sir kim darroch to whitehall and the boris johnson as foreign secretary. mrjohnson couldn't persuade the white house to stick with the deal. whoever comes next prime minister now faces a huge series of tasks, trying to keep secrets secret, trying to restore and rebuild confidence and morale here at the foreign office and perhaps hardest of all trying to win not lose, influence in washington. at the moment, the relationship is not satisfactory for significant reasons that are actually much more important than these leaks. namely, middle east policy, including towards iran, the damaging policy which the united states is adopting. iran's president says his country is ready to talk to the united states, but only if washington lifts sanctions and returns to the nuclear deal.
translation: when a big power is a bully, then we have to stand up to it. it must stop being a bully. we've always believed in talks. but the white house will not accept iran's preconditions. the crisis at sea in the gulf is no closer to being resolved. the major european powers hope they can still prevent it deteriorating into something far worse, armed conflict. james robbins, bbc news. meanwhile, the bbc has gained rare access to iran, where people had hoped to see the economy revived through the nuclear deal and the lifting of sanctions. our correspondent martin patience has been talking to iranians in the holy city of qom and the capital tehran, with cameraman nik millard and producer cara swift. as with all foreign media, they were accompanied by a government official and there were restrictions on what they could film but not what they could say. crowd chant nationalism, pride, and resistance.
it's religion that fuels iran's politics. but now, the choreographed chants of "death to our enemies" are growing louder. the religious city of qom is where clerics have kept the revolutionary flame alive for a0 years. it's where resistance to america is strongest. donald trump is a liar, you know, is an unpredictable person. he is not representative of satan — he is satan himself, he is a satan. donald trump is satan? yeah, yeah, because you know, satan does everything that he does. the us accuses iran's religious leaders of wanting to develop nuclear weapons,
of seeking to dominate the region. by pulling out of the nuclear deal, donald trump strengthened iran's hardliners, who say that america should never have been trusted in the first place. but many here know that political islam doesn't have the same appeal as it did a0 years ago. iran is changing. pop music plays in the capital tehran, clerics compete with pop stars for influence. most iranians were born after the 1979 revolution. the younger generation is more open to the world. it's these liberal iranians that donald trump believes he can win over. but instead, anti—american sentiment is unifying iran.
translation: it's true that iran is pushing very hard with the issue of nuclear energy. perhaps we are pushing too hard, but if nuclear energy is bad for us then it should be bad for everyone else as well. the us and iran needn't be enemies. the paint on this mural is fading. four years ago, with the nuclear deal, america and iran showed they could reach an agreement, but it was never built on trust. what happened here a0 years ago has poisoned relations ever since. iranian students stormed the us embassy, holding american diplomats hostage for more than a year. i was from the first day here. this is me.
it was christmas. we wanted the american hostages... this man was one of the hostage—takers and later a government minister. this is his message to america. there is no way if he continues like that that iranian people and their leadership can trust their future with mr trump. but he says the last nuclear agreement was too generous... what is the guarantee the president after that doesn't say something else? but he says it was too generous and that allowed iran to meddle in the middle east. ok, but this is not the way. this is not the way. are you worried that there will be a war between america and iran? there is not going to be a war because the war against us means killed american soldiers and he's not ready to make a funeral in washington, dc.
the former embassy is a reminder of the limits of american power. many iranians believe that the us has not learned that lesson. iran's history is defined by its struggle against foreign nations, and today, america and its allies confront iran at their own peril. martin patience, bbc news, tehran. a 25—year—old man has been charged with the murder of a pregnant woman in south london and the manslaughter of her baby son. kelly mary fauvrelle was eight months pregnant when she was attacked at her home in south london two weeks ago. navtej johal reports. kelly mary fauvrelle was eight months pregnant when she was fatally stabbed at her home in croydon in an attack last month. her son, who was delivered by paramedics at the scene, also died a few days later in hospital.
police were called to her house in the early hours of the morning, where she was in cardiac arrest and died at the scene. herfamily, including her mother and baby nephew, were all at home at the time of the attack. today, police have charged aaron mckenzie with her murder and manslaughter of her child. the 25—year—old has also been charged with one count of possession of offensive weapon. he's one of three men arrested over the deaths. a 37—year—old was released with no further action while a 29—year—old has been bailed until next month. aaron mckenzie is due to appear in front of magistrates tomorrow. navtej johal, navteonhal, bbc news. the bbc has been told there will be a concerted push for labour to adopt an independent process for dealing with complaints of anti—semitism. it comes after a bbc panorama investigation revealed that some ofjeremy corbyn‘s closest allies tried to interfere in the disciplinary
processes of such cases. earlier today the shadow foreign secretary, emily thornberry, said the party must heed "the message" on anti—semitism and not attack the "messengers". political correspondent iain watson has more details. i think notably today a senior figure, the shadow foreign secretary, emily thornbury, distanced herself from that official attack and said she'd defend the messengers, as she called them so now there's a group of people who see themselves on the centre—left of the party who are saying the underlying issues need to be tackled. in doing so they say what's required is a completely independent system to deal with complaints of anti—semitism, which will be raised ata anti—semitism, which will be raised at a meeting tomorrow, but also i'm being told there will be a push at the decision—making. .. a being told there will be a push at the decision—making... a senior figure said to me this could be a defining moment for labour but the leadership haven't signed up.
they're saying they're improving the existing system are dealing with anti—semitism complaints four times more quickly than before, and their critics don't realise the changes being made. the headlines on bbc news: a thrilling end to the cricket world cup as england defeat new zealand to become world champions for the first time. more leaked memos from britain's former ambassador to washington suggest president trump scrapped the iran nuclear deal to spite barack obama. a man is charged with the murder of kelly mary fauvrelle, the 26—year—old who was eight months pregnant when she was fatally stabbed at home. sport and for a full round—up from the bbc sport centre, here's tulsen tollett. —— mark. absolutely astounding all—time classic from the cricket was that england are welljenkins after beating new zealand and arguably one of the most gripping, nerve

that diet and exercise can help almost everyone lower their risk of dementia. researchers found that even those with a higher risk of developing the disease could lower it by up to a third through adopting a healthier lifestyle. here's our health and science correspondent james gallagher. sue taylor is committed to keeping fit. she comes here for a workout three times a week as well as watching what she eats. the mother and grandmother both had dementia and grandmother both had dementia and she doesn't want the same to happen to her. ijust want and she doesn't want the same to happen to her. i just want to and she doesn't want the same to happen to her. ijust want to keep mentally, keep my brain as sharp as possible for as long as possible. and i feel if i possible for as long as possible. and ifeel if i don't possible for as long as possible. and i feel if i don't get out, be active, then i'm not probably doing myself any favours. so what does it ta ke to myself any favours. so what does it take to avoid dementia? you can live the life of the saint and still get dementia. but studies as you can alter your risk. the healthiest people in this they were exercising vigorously for more than 75 minutes they didn't smoke, drink alcohol
only in moderation and they had a healthy, balanced diet. so how big a difference did it make? the study followed people for eight years. less tha n followed people for eight years. less than 1% of them develop dementia as they were so young, having a healthy lifestyle cut the risk by a third —— developed. having a healthy lifestyle cut the risk by a third —— developedlj risk by a third —— developed.” think it's important to show even if you have a high genetic risk of dementia, if you engage in a healthy lifestyle you could substantially reduce your own risk of dementia.” think that potential is absolutely critical. there are still no treatments for dementia. but researchers say knowing lifestyle changes can prevent some cases is exciting and empowering. james gallagher, bbc news. this week it will be 50 years since the apollo 11 mission, and neil armstrong going down in history as the first man to set foot on the moon, but when he returned, he retreated from public life. now his sons and granddaughter have spoken to the bbc about him and how he was profoundly affected
by seeing the earth rise from the lunar surface. our science correspondent pallab ghosh reports. the prime crew now departing from the crew quarters on his way to the launch pad, he was about to become the most famous person in human history. yet since he set foot on the moon, the world learned little about the real neil armstrong. here they're in the suit—up room. you really do look a lot like him. thanks. his son, mark, was just six years old at the time. 0h, dad! little baby. cute as a button. 50 years on, and a world away, he relives those moments with his daughter, kayleigh. lights on, forward. basically, dad's controlling the vehicle and buzz is calling off, how far down they go and how much fuel is left. it's one small step for man...
..one giant leap for mankind. good job, grandpa. he did not appear to be worried, and so we weren't worried. everything's going to be fine, and we'll see dad in a month or so when he's out of quarantine. dad was very much the same after as he was before, and both he and my mother wanted our lives to try to stay the same after as before. and that was a struggle. his oldest brother rick told me that it wasn't always easy being neil armstrong's son. everybody wants to be judged on their own merits, i think. i would have liked to have been an astronaut in the programme, and maybe i didn't because i didn't want to have to face down that comparison. at the time of the moon landing, through his eyes, millions across the world saw what he saw.
in 1969, he was looking back at the earth and seeing it as a fragile resource. i wasn't alive, of course, for it, and so getting to relive it in my own generation is really, really special. it's very pretty out here. pallab ghosh, bbc news. and we'll be taking an in—depth look at the papers in a few minutes with our reviewers chief sports reporter at the sun, martin lipton, and ruth lea who is an economic adviser at arbuthnot banking group. that's coming up after the headlines at 11:30pm. now it's time for a look at the weather with alina. hello. some warmth and sunshine to start this forecast, by the end, some rain for many. after monday, an area of high pressure scented sensitive the uk. they now keeping atla ntic sensitive the uk. they now keeping atlantic transit bay. some some changes that the day on monday. more on the way of cloud, particularly across northern scotland into shetland and eastern countries done
