he's a two time rugby world cup winner with new zealand's all blacks but now sonny bill williams is set to play in rugby league's super league next season. he's likely to sign a two year multi million pound contract with newly promoted canadian side toronto wolfpack. he'll become one of their marquee players. williams was part of the new zealand team beaten by england in the rugby world cup semi finals last month and has made 12 appearances for new zealand's rugby league team before. staying with new zealand where their cricket team have beaten england in the 3rd t20 international in nelson after an england batting collapse. the kiwis now lead the 5 match series 2—1. new zealand post a competitive but chasable 180—7 from their 20 overs, colin de grandhomme top scoring with 55 from 35 deliveries.
1:37 pm
a 63 run partnership betweenjames vince and dawid malan looked to put the touring side on course for victory before a late collapse. eoin morgan's wicket triggered the loss of 5 wickets for 10 runs as england lost by 1a runs. morgan said a lack of experience may have cost them. he may not be featuring for real madrid at the moment but that hasn't stopped gareth bale being picked for the wales squad for theirfinal two euro 2020 qualifiers. juventus midfielder aaron ramsey has also been picked again by ryan giggs after missing last month's matches through injury. wales wrap up their qualification campaign with games against azerbaijan and hungary. there was disappointment for frankie dettori at the melbourne cup as his horse was demoted from second to fourth after a stewards' inquiry.
1:38 pm
vow and declare won a dramatic race in a tight finish ahead of dettori's master of reality but a stewards inquiry ruled that the horse impeded il paradiso. that meant il paradiso was promoted to third, with british hope prince of arran second. dettori was also given a nine meeting ban. let's get more now on campaigning for the general election, and the labour leaderjeremy corbyn has been in harlow this morning. he's been laying out his party's plans for a future government, including how he aims to get brexit done in the next six months. the tories are offering an extreme and damaging form of brexit while the liberal democrats want to ignore the result of the 2016 referendum and revoke article 50. the brexit crisis does need to be resolved but it must be done democratically. because walk down any street in britain and you'll find people who voted to leave and people who voted to remain. whatever our differences may be on this one issue, at the end of the day we have so much else in common.
1:39 pm
the liberal democrats launched their general election campaign this morning, with leader jo swinson telling voters that stopping brexit would deliver a £50 billion remain bonus for public services over the next five years. let's have a listen. when we stop brexit we will be able to use that remain bonus to invest in other public services. we are the only party standing up to say that we will stop brexit and build a brighterfuture, and everybody knows brexit has taken longer and cost more than anyone said that it would. but any type of brexit will damage our economy, will costjobs and starve our public services of the resources they need. so, we know that that remain vote will be £50 billion that we can spend on other public services,
1:40 pm
investing in our schools and in the welfare system to help the poorest in our society. so, every vote for the liberal democrats is a vote to stop brexit and invest £50 billion in our public services. we are checking the party's pig claims and look into whether the data packs up the claims. —— big claims. the exams regulator, quual, says french and german gcse exams will be marked slightly less severely from 2020 in england, after a review of grading. it could mean a boost of between a quarter and a half of a grade for some pupils. bra nwen jeffreys is
1:41 pm
our education editor. explain what is going on. just french and german? just french and german gcse science stilljust in england. it is the regulator'sjob to make sure exams are the same standard across different subjects and figures language teachers have been complaining it is really hard for teenagers to get the same kind of greats as they are getting in other subjects when doing languages. although spanish has been booming french and german have seen a long—term quite catastrophic decline in the numbers and that's one of the things they have taken into account in terms of making it slightly easierfor people to in terms of making it slightly easier for people to nudge over into a better grade for next summer so good news if you are revising at the moment. it is interesting in terms of the take—up. it is hard to know whether people start opting for
1:42 pm
foreign languages for the sort of reason because they think it is so ha rd reason because they think it is so hard they will not get a good grade 01’ hard they will not get a good grade or whether there is complacency and they think they don't have to be able to speak a foreign language. there are certainly a mixture although as the british consul points out about 75% of the material online is not in english so the world is changing rapidly. the bbc did a massive debt of research and found that in some areas french has declined but german has almost totally disappeared and that is despite the fears of business people and mps and peers that these are skills we are really going to need whatever happens with brexit. we have to be able to go out in the world and do business with them. thank you. health and social care staff working in the nhs in england will receive training on autism and learning disabilities following a campaign led by families.
1:43 pm
the training programme has been named in memory of teenager oliver mcgowan, whose parents campaigned for better staff training since his death in 2016. a trial of the new training will begin in england next year. a little earlier dan scorer from learning disability charity mencap told the bbc why it was so crucial. every year, over 1,000 people with a learning disability die avoidably. when if they'd got good quality health care at the right time, their lives could have been saved. so this training was a key recommendation coming out of a government review looking into those deaths and so it's absolutely vital now the government move ahead with this and implement it as soon as possible. earlier our presenter annita mcveigh spoke to caroline dinenage, the minister of state at the department of health and social care, and asked whether she was confident the program will be followed through on, no matter who is in government? it's not a trial as a way of kicking it down the path, it's a trial to get it 100% right.
1:44 pm
this needs to be meaningful. we know that some health and care professionals do get the right sort of training but actually this is for everybody, so it's notjust medical staff, it's everyone who may come into contact with patients. so you know yourself that if you have a negative experience with a gp front desk, with a receptionist, for example, it can ruin your day, but if you are an adult with learning disabilities or an autistic person that might actually stop you wanting to go back to that doctor's surgery again and some long—term health conditions may not be picked up, and that could significantly impact your long—term health prospects, so we really wanted to make sure that everybody who has some kind of interaction with patients has that real training that will make a difference to the way that they support people. is there the money to really make this have an impact? absolutely. we are putting the money in for the interim training for the trial that starts next year
1:45 pm
but in addition to that the long—term plan has committed £4.5 billion additional spending to community provision, which is all about making sure that we do have that opportunity to intervene in people's health journeys, to be able to make sure there is the provision there in the community which means people don't end up in a long—term inpatient setting. a report on bronzefield women's prison in surrey where a newborn baby died in september says there's a "severe shortage" of nurses at the jail. the independent monitoring board which conducts regular visits to the prison compiled its assessment before the baby's death, which is the subject of a separate inquiry. the headlines on bbc news: the liberal democrats officially launch their election campaign.
1:46 pm
jo swinson promises a "remain bonus" of £50 billion over five years if brexit is stopped. in a speech this morning, jeremy corbyn promises to "get brexit sorted" within six months of winning power. the conservatives dismiss labour's pledge as "fairytale politics" and insist they are the party to deliver brexit. a scheme designed to help people aged under a0 get on the housing ladder in england has failed to result in a single home being built. the national audit office said £174 million had been spent on buying land for the starter homes project. polly neate who is chief executive of the homelessness charity shelter says it was the wrong kind of scheme in the first place. the scheme was not going to tackle oui’ the scheme was not going to tackle our housing crisis so 80% of market rent to buy is simply not affordable to people living in private rented accommodation, who are the people
1:47 pm
who desperately need a home, and two thirds of people living in private renting have no savings, so the idea they can buy a home at 80% of market rent is a bit of the mark anyway. what we think is the government needs to stop churning out these glossy products that are supposed to appeal to people who think they offer a chance of home ownership when they don't and instead they need to focus on tackling the real crisis which is the shortage of genuinely affordable social housing. a diy home urine or swab test could potentially help more women discover whether they are at risk of cervical cancer according to researchers. the new method could be used as an alternative to the smear test and would not require a visit to the doctor. dr belinda nedjay who helped develop
1:48 pm
the new test has been explaining how it works. we are testing a change in dna manipulation and sample from self swapping so women are invited to give a you're in sample and then we test the changes. we designed this test the changes. we designed this test to reach women who would not attend abnormal screening programme because they find too painful or difficult in the first instance. if the nhs is happy with the stress could be rolled out in the first year to reach out to these women and then to be registered for the whole public may be in five years, three to five years exactly because we need to test less than 10,000 women throughout the country under the
1:49 pm
necessary checks to roll it out. men born at high risk of developing prostate cancer should have extra checks every year from the age of 40, according to experts. scientists at the institute of cancer research in london say that checking men, or anyone with a prostate, to identify a substance called psa in the blood, could help them find tumours earlier when it's easier to treat them. the united states has formally notified the united nations that it intends to withdraw from the paris climate change agreement, sparking international condemnation. it is the first formal step of a one—year process of leaving the deal, culminating the day after next year's presidential election. the paris agreement commits nearly 200 nations to reducing greenhouse emissions.
