celsius, plenty of cooler, low teen celsius, plenty of sunshine and even if you showers which will have a wintry flavour over the grampians and highlands. that colder dry out will be moving south across the country pushing the heavy showers and rain away from the south, and also much colder by wednesday morning, a touch of our frost for northern england and rural scotland. it is a settled picture around the middle part of the week, because we have this area of pushing in from the west. it will be cold, with these northerly winds, dragging and down from the arctic and that will be quite a feature across the north and east of the country, certainly coastal areas, and then very cold raw wind. further south, the wind is not quite as bad, a cold start but plenty of sunshine, temperatures reaching the mid—teens celsius, but that will be calling what we're used to. you can see the green tensed, just about making double figures across the north of scotland. it is a brief call spell though because we look to the atlantic, and this is hurricane
lorenzo, a very powerful hurricane a few days ago, continuing to weaken as it pushes closer towards our shores. many of the computer models are issues, it is where this ——as to where this storm will end up. it looks like it will end up as a low area of low pressure, and it will just push to the west of the united kingdom, someone could bring western areas a spell of wind and rain, but it could be that it moves a bit further westwards towards iceland, in which case we won't be affected by it. we are more certain about is this system will draw some mild air, drawing arctic winds back in towards scandinavia. this is the picture for thursday, at the moment we do think that the remnants of hurricane lorenzo could affect parts of northern ireland, western britain with some stronger winds, bringing some heavy rain, it could stay dry further east, it could do. those temperatures will be on the rise across southern areas, mid to high
teens celsius. be on thursday and friday into the weekend and next week, it looks like it will be u nsettled week, it looks like it will be unsettled across the north atlantic with a series of low systems, which could affect the north and west of the uk, whereas further south and east, it could stay a little more settled thanks to high pressure over the near continent. it looks like it will remain unsettled beyond the week into next week as well, wet and breezy in the north—west and a better chance of staying dry out in the south and east, but still lots of uncertainty to this forecast, so keep watching.
hello, this is bbc news. we will be taking a look at tomorrow morning's papers in a moment. first the headlines: the chancellor tells the conservative conference that brexit will happen on 31 october, and unveils some new spending pledges. meanwhile, the prime minister, meeting workers in manchester, has again denied allegations of
misconduct with a female journalist. the bbc has reversed a decision to partially uphold a complaint against the breakfast presenter naga munchetty, following a wave of criticism. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are asa bennett, the brexit commissioning editor for the telegraph, and political writier and acedemic maya goodfellow. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the telegraph says borisjohnson will reveal his brexit plan in more detail to eu leaders within next 2a hours. on its front page, the ft says the pm could know by the weekend whether the eu is willing to engage with his proposal to resolve the irish border issue. and the times says borisjohnson will ask the european union to rule out a further extension to article
50 as part of any new brexit deal. the metro goes with the news that the bbc director—general, tony hall, has reversed a decision to partially uphold a complaint against breakfast presenter naga munchetty. the guardian also goes on that story, and says the u—turn follows leaked internal correspondence which cast doubts on public claims about the complaints process made by a senior bbc executive. and the daily mail says violent criminals will face longerjail terms as part of tory law—and—order plans to be announced by the justice secretary, robert buckland. lets have a proper look. let's begin with the telegraph, and this plan does seem that they are trying, perhaps for the first time since borisjohnson perhaps for the first time since boris johnson became prime perhaps for the first time since borisjohnson became prime minister, to put some more detail on some ideas. yes, this is not officially the plan, so this is the government, it seems, trailing some ideas ahead
of boris johnson's it seems, trailing some ideas ahead of borisjohnson‘s speech at the conservative party conference on wednesday. and what they are essentially saying is having some kind of all ireland economic zone with some kind of checks at the border. the initial sounds from the eu are that they can't say whether they would accept or not if these are the official plans. what they are the official plans. what they are saying is if these were to be the plans, this isn't something they would countenance given the northern ireland peace process and what that would mean in terms of the border. there is also the issue for the conservatives of the dup, and getting some labour votes, or some tory mps who are now independence to pass that through parliament. otherwise they face asking for an extension under the benn act. and this is your newspaper, the reaction that seems to have greeted this is pretty negative so far, but it is early days, obviously. is this new, really, or not? well, obviously we report that this is something the prime minister is considering
outlining as an offer in his big keynote conference speech on wednesday. and you would think that he would only do that if he was very confident it was worthwhile, and almost committing to camera, otherwise it would be jolly embarrassing if he then had michel barnier coming back on camera and immediately saying that's very good, but we won't accept it and try again. otherwise he will have to commit to something to show that he is, at the tory conference, trying to get that done, because that is the mantra, by 31 october, they want to make clear. the real question is how, because as maya was touching on, under existing legislation, the benn act, or the so—called surrender act, unless he has a deal passed by parliament, he has to then ask the eu fora parliament, he has to then ask the eu for a delay. and so there could be an attempt to try and get a deal through, but where are the votes? given that the dup are not inclined to vote for anything similar to the
old deal, the erg, those stout brexiteers, they are not in the mood. mark francois made some sounds. he said he wants to wake up ina free sounds. he said he wants to wake up in a free britain. i was there, it was quite something. plenty of people vote with him, is the thing. it is complicated whether any of it is actually new, because this seems like we are talking back to the border in the irish sea, still talking about technical alternative arrangements, kicking the can down the road in terms of future negotiations to get the detail. we have heard all of this before, and evenif have heard all of this before, and even if dup are not needed to push this through, he needs a majority in the house. very much so, and the labour 30 who say they are open to
backing a deal will only do it when they know it is definitely going to get there. and what hasn't helped for borisjohnson get there. and what hasn't helped for boris johnson is get there. and what hasn't helped for borisjohnson is the past week in which we have seen this kind of really... you know, we have seen these debates in parliament and a lot of labour mps being unhappy with the kind of language borisjohnson is using stuff that doesn't mean it would not then voting for a deal, but i certainly think it doesn't help in the sense of trying to bring over some of those people. well, i mean, the flipside of a lot of this, of course, is the very divided opposition. and the i has that headline of government of national unity talks begin. they were supposed to meet today, but the liberal democrats not backing jeremy corbyn as any kind of transitional leader. not a vote of no—confidence without knowing where that ends up, potentially. and so they are really in deadlock, in that sense, given that... it almost feels like if they
are to make a compromise, it would have to be they have a go at considering jeremy corbyn as a candidate, if they assume the no—confidence vote passes, they can move onto this, and ifjeremy corbyn doesn't work can move on to the next tentative. but that requires —— next alternative. the one that stands out to me, the snp in the previous few days got into some hot water by indicating they were open to backing corbyn. in their words, they see it as one of the many options. why are they forced to do this? to get all they forced to do this? to get all the brick that's for suggesting they are willing to do so? because they are willing to do so? because they are panicking —— brickbats. they can'tjust sit are panicking —— brickbats. they can't just sit back and are panicking —— brickbats. they can'tjust sit back and let are panicking —— brickbats. they can't just sit back and let the are panicking —— brickbats. they can'tjust sit back and let the benn legislation, the surrender bill, do its work. they have to add something to the mix. and let's look at the daily express. it is party conference season. normally we get lots of announcements, everyone is speculating there is going to be an election, and the tories have got law and order. it is not particularly surprising that the tories are going for this kind of angle and are going quite hard, there is the story in the telegraph
about this idea that violent offenders will lose the automatic right to be released from jail halfway through their sentence. and i think that this is the conservatives, amongst many other things that they have been saying this week, really setting themselves up this week, really setting themselves upfora this week, really setting themselves up for a general election, thinking that this will play well in the public. i think in terms of the detail of policy like this, there's a number of to be asked in terms of what works in terms of rehabilitation. does the government no more than we do about keeping people in prison for longer and the effect that might have on people? and what is the best way to bring people back into the community. and i think there are some interesting things it says in the telegraph story about how this is to do with the sentencing laws under labour, but what happened under labour is labour introduced indefinite sentences and that was then abolished by the conservatives. so there are some problems in terms of there are some problems in terms of the detail about how some of the sentencing laws are understood, and how the conservatives are talking about them, because they have been in office for some time and so there will be some debate about why now?
this is about the election pitch to the public. and number ten were calling for new eye—catching ideas for ministers to announce, that happens every year, and this is one of them. whether they would come into force is another thing. and how it swept the pages on the express, the daily mail. the end of the soft prison sentence, for the daily mail. and the key thing, just to keep —— ta ke and the key thing, just to keep —— take a step back on this, maya offers a very nuanced take, and the key question is what does this do for the crime rate? but what voters will hear is the left are on the side of marc ryan. they are defending all this. the public at
large, you can never be too tough on crime, and you can go all in and law and order reigns supreme. before we leave the daily mail, ijust want and order reigns supreme. before we leave the daily mail, i just want to show everyone the photograph on the right—hand side. maybe i need some better contact lenses, i was just saying earlier i thought that was a picture of amal clooney next to dominic cummings, but it is not. picture of amal clooney next to dominic cummings, but it is notm is dominic cummings's wife, i believe. this story has been hanging over borisjohnson, believe. this story has been hanging over boris johnson, another female difficult story for him. do you think it is politically damaging? i think it is politically damaging? i think it is politically damaging? i think it isn't particularly good in terms of him... he is prime
minister, there has been a number of stories like this in borisjohnson's history, and i think allegations like this need to be taken... and just to explain, dominic cummings's wife is pictured because she was speculated to be one of the women at the lunch. because she was a spectator, so the theory is that at a very boozy 1999 lunch when it was alleged the prime minister, at the time and editor, was hands on the thighs of the two neighbouring women next to him, and she denies this vehemently. so i suppose this will now make journalists thirst for answers on who else it may be. at the end of the day, as ministers and politicians will acknowledge, it is sort of christ in. clearly the government want to move the conversation onto other things, because if you are talking about a boozy lunch 20 years ago, be in the
here and now. let's move onto something altogether more difficult, actually, and that is the times, because it is a very striking photo of is fighters, inside a filthyjail pa ct of is fighters, inside a filthyjail pact with 5000 fighters. and what this report actually says is, while the us led coalition has spent huge amounts of money bombing isis, it hasn't been willing to construct an international tribunal to put these people on trial, so it is really leaving them in this situation of this in between stage of not really facing justice. and so it does kind of prompt some questions about actually what you do after you engage in this kind of military action, and what happens with these people who may or may not have committed crimes they are alleged to have committed. i willjust bring us now to the guardian. lots of stories in the papers today, we have also bringing the news from the bbc. they
have headlined it tv presenter in trumpet races row. this is the demi moore of a far too long saga of how the bbc handled the naga munchetty phrases and then donald trump said go home to find politicians and how it made her feel. go home to find politicians and how it made herfeel. this has taken go home to find politicians and how it made her feel. this has taken too long. you have exposed the wia, and the structures within, and the bbc has been overrun and overruled, and it should have dealt with as much faster. the guardian had the story today that dan walker, male white c0— today that dan walker, male white co— presenter today that dan walker, male white c0“ presenter was today that dan walker, male white co— presenter was also involved in the original complaint, and that did not come out in the original bbc management statement, it has all been very difficult, hasn't it? it highlights the complaint that many people have an ad in the last few days that people feel that if you area days that people feel that if you are a wide member of staff you get
treated one way, if not you are treated one way, if not you are treated totally different —— aired. the dam has broken. this story really highlights it, and what is interesting about it is the response from a lot of high—profile commentators who have actually said they don't agree with the kind of, they don't agree with the kind of, the way that naga munchetty has been treated, it seems like there has been differential treatment, it is very difficult to make sense of the bbc's labyrinth processes, but part of the problem is it was not communicated particularly well and even when there was justification given for what has happened before this kind of throwback, it was difficult to make sense why naga munchetty was treated the way she was. senior bbc figure said what donald trump said was racist, it was fine for naga munchetty to give her own personal take on the racism that
she has experienced that is incredibly similar to these four us congress robin. it was because you can't ascribe a motive to anybody, —— congress women. you cannot definitively say that that person is a racist and it is not for the bbc staff to have opinions on everything, that is how we retain public trust, that was the argument. should there be resignations? will this story move forward without that? it is pretty shameless, the sort of covering of each other‘s'... people saying that actually it was a complaint when both apply to both presenters, we ignored it, and then it came on again for naga munchetty and that is why we took it seriously. the postmortem is quite grizzly at this rate. settling as tony hall is saying, these are finally balanced judgements but there is a blunt approach that has meant that this has been far too in elegantly handled. that is far 22 in—house trash going on — far to do
much. final headline, but he is no longer safe. what this story is saying that often redmeat and bacon in particular is, we are told is associated with lots of different health risks like cancer and what this study has done is collated a lot of different studies that exist and downgraded studies where people self—report, so when it is observational, the reason they say they downgrade them is because sometimes people say i can't remember what i ate some of the people who might be part of those studies who are eating red meat also might be smoking,... it is not controlled. what that has done is come up with the stories, but another professor has said it is good for the planet to be reducing the amount of redmeat you are eating,... i am on the vegetarian front with you. but the times also has this story and say as a result people who enjoy 3— four portions of
redmeat should carry on as they do. this is a total reversal. and speaking as the token meat eater and the panel, ——on the panel, this scientific study, which is of course downgrading, reassessing, going across the board on its view of things, the people who are carrying out the more contrary study suggesting it is problematic aren't best pleased. sticking to the guns saying this is not a license to go binge on me to. be are waiting for the next study that says again it could be bad. that is the difficulty. i speak as a scientist, we need more science education so we can understand actually how all of this is put together. can understand actually how all of this is put togetherlj can understand actually how all of this is put together. i don't know what that means for the next barbecue... it means you can eat what you want! proper sausages, that is the way to go. vegetarian sausages. twitter will be satellite
by this. you are not coming to our barbecue — set alight. because you welcome, you are always welcome. if you want to catch up on all of the papers, go to the website, it is there seven days a week. and if you miss the programme any evening, you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you, asa bennett and maya goodfellow. iam going i am going to have a barbecue now and invite both of you.|j i am going to have a barbecue now and invite both of you. i will look forward to it. good evening, i am holly hamilton with your latest sports news. it was a wet and miserable night at old trafford for a clash that would once have been billed as one of the highlights of the premier league season.
instead, manchester united and arsenal played out a 1—1 draw that was as grim at times as the weather. nick parrott was watching. there was a time when manchester united knew how to get things done. following them now can be two as miserable experience as the weather, but the manager remains chipper because old trafford is arsenal's burger ground. they have not won here in the league since the manager was playing 13 years ago. the 27 minute wait for the shot on target was the longest wait in the premier league this season. but this still warmed up andrew twos form it was united who opened the scoring,. united who opened the scoring,. united were in the driving seat but we re united were in the driving seat but were still thrown into reverse. a sloppy pass and some quick reactions or peer and rick get back on equal terms. his goal was ruled offside before var came to the rescue. for a
point would move arsenal into the top four, but united needed more. they threw everything at it, they came close, harry maguire even closer, marcus rushford closest of all, but none of them could get the job done. it was far from a classic, but despite still not winning, arsenal will be heading home for happiest. fifa have ruled that cardiff city must pay the first instalment of £5.3 million to nantes for striker emiliano sala. the 28—year—old argentinian, died in a plane crash injanuary while travelling from france tojoin his new club. cardiff have argued they were not liable for any of the full 15 million pound fee because sala was not officially their player when he died. the second instalment of the agreed fee is due to be paid nextjanuary. cardiff say they are seeking further clarification from fifa regarding the ruling before deciding what steps to take on to the world athletics championships and what a moment for britain's dina asher smith, as she received her first major global medal earlier after coming second in the women's 100 metres last night.
clearly no sign of fatigue though, as she ran the fastest time of the day to reach the 200m semi—finals — winning her heat in 22.32 seconds. fellow britsjodie williams and beth dobbin are also through. asher—smith is ranked current number one in this event and is the favourite to win her first global outdoor title. meanwhile, britain's adam gemili clocked 20.03 seconds to win the opening men's 200m semi and qualify for the final — he finished ahead of turkey's defending champion ramil guliyev. zharnel hughes failed to progress and miguel francis was forced to pull out after suffering a quad strain in yesterday's heats. plenty of high drama on the track tonight, including karsten warholm's storming victory in the 400 metres men's hurdles. the 23—year—old norwegian, who is on an unbeaten streak of 1a races, came home clear of main rival rai benjamin.
warholm, the second fastest ever over the distance, didn't come close to the world record that many thought might fall this evening but his time of 47.42 seconds was good enough to ensure the successful defence of his title. this was a very tough race, i actually felt my heart was going to stop, nojoke. iactually actually felt my heart was going to stop, nojoke. i actually had actually felt my heart was going to stop, nojoke. iactually had pain in my chest, i am going to die, but it will be worth it, and here i am, world champion, and i am not dead either. it was a must win match for scotland but win they did. and it means they could have just saved their rugby world cup campaign. they knew that defeat to samoa would have left qualification for the quarter—finals out of their hands but they won 34 points to nil injapan. that means scotland are now third in their group behind ireland and japan who are top. scotland's remaining games are against russia and japan.
that was a true reflection of who we are and what we are capable of, and what playing for scotland means for these players. that was a tough challenge that they had to rise up and face, knowing that if we underperform tonight we were out of the world cup, and we are playing a very dangerous team, so to see the effort and the togetherness was excellent. that's all the sport for now. enjoy the rest of your evening. the average height of a two story houseis the average height of a two story house is around seven metres high. imagine then if you count for a second wave is that our three times that size at around 22 metres high. that is what hurricane lorenzo is capable of producing with its 105 mile an hour sustained winds, there are warnings for the western is yours for the waves to reach an unimaginable 22 metres high as the storm system passes very close to
the western azores tuesday night. after that, the hurricane will turn into a normal area of low pressure and will end up somewhere close by the british isles by there are still some uncertainty exactly where it ends up by thursday. our main focus for the time being is under threat of some further flooding across england and wales after the recent heavy rain we have seen, and there is more to come on tuesday. this band of persistent rainfall in northern ireland and england initially, heavy with showers and thunderstorms for wales in south—west england through the morning, and through time these showers will push across the midlands, some truly torrential downpours, around 30 or 40 millimetres of rainfall in the space of just millimetres of rainfall in the space ofjust a millimetres of rainfall in the space of just a few millimetres of rainfall in the space ofjust a few hours bringing the real threat of localised flooding, and because there will be so many showers, it will be one of those days where it is raining on and offer much of the day. relatively mild in the south, highs of 90 degrees in london, but cooler air for northern england, ireland and scotland, and it will brighten up as
the day goes by with some sunshine and it will be some showers in northern scotland, they just and it will be some showers in northern scotland, theyjust will not be as torrential. overnight the rain finally clears off across southern of england, left with clearing skies, a few missed and fog patches, some chilly air pushing southward, temperatures getting down into low single figures, and in the countryside there will be some areas that see some pockets of frost to start the day on wednesday. a much colder day on wednesday, northerly winds feeding in, driver many of us, which is good news after all that heavy rain, allowing some time for some of those floodwaters to ebb away, but they were still be some showers in northern scotland and on our north sea coast. it will feel top temperatures in london reaching a high of around 14 degrees.
welcome to newsday, i'm mariko oi in hong kong. the headlines: 70 years of the people's republic. china's anniversary celebrations are set to get underway with a military parade and a presidential speech. but in hong kong, the pro—democracy protests look set to continue. i'm kasia madera in london. also in the programme: donald trump's personal lawyer is ordered to handover documents on ukraine as the president calls for the democratic congressman leading the impeachment inquiry to be arrested for treason.
