this is bbc news. i'm shaun ley. the headlines at 1800. seven severe flood warnings remain along south yorkshire's river don — meaning there's a threat to life for those in the area if the river rises again tonight or tomorrow, and it's in conjunction with a high tide and a further fall of rain, the village simply will not be able to cope. the tories say a jeremy corbyn government could cause an economic crisis within months of coming to power — labour calls the claim a complete work of fiction. remembering the fallen of the world wars — and the conflicts since. a world war ii dakota plane dropped 750,000 poppies over the white cliffs of dover to remember those who lost their lives.
6:01 pm
voters in spain return to the polls for the country's fourth general election in as many years. and another success for england — as they win in new zealand. and we'll have a round up of the latest sports news and results from the premier league including the liverpool — man city game, and a win for manchester utd. seven severe flood warnings remain in place along the river don in south yorkshire this afternoon — with a further a0 such warnings elsewhere in england and in wales. 0ne community — fishlake — has been completely
6:02 pm
engulfed by floodwaters — anger is rising amongst residents who say they aren't getting enough help. the environment agency have told the bbc it's continues to monitor and manage the huge volume of water travelling through south yorkshire. 0ur correspondent fiona trott reports. a village that's been abandoned. most people here have locked up and left. the safest way to get through is by tractor. parish councillor pam webb has decided to stay. she is touring the village with the emergency services. the environment agency put out a notice at 5pm on friday, basically, "stand down, there won't be homes flooded". this is what's happened. farmerjohn duckett has worked on these fields all his life. he says poor land management is to blame. there is no doubt about it. part of the problem
6:03 pm
is the river don, which drains this area, is not receiving any maintenance whatsoever. the local pub in fishlake has become a refuge. it's on higher ground and has gas, a place to sleep and get a hot meal. the first night, everyone was devastated, weren't they? absolutely devastated. we had grown men crying, which were horrific but spirits have lifted now, haven't they? they are able to cook meals because people have been donating food at the local church. and volunteers likejosh have been wading through the water to deliver it. i'm going back and forth from the church with supplies in my day sack, delivering them to people who need them. there's a lot of elderly people stuck with nothing. if it wasn't for the volunteers like these local farmers, this village would be struggling to cope. they've been praised by the emergency services and will be here for many days to come. fiona trott, bbc news, doncaster.
6:04 pm
earlier, i spoke to peter pridham, the church warden in fishlake. resident have been warned that there is a risk to life if they do not evacuate immediately. but some have stayed behind including peter — i asked him what the situation was like in the village. the situation today, the village is any critical condition because large amounts of floodwater have rushed in to it on friday and saturday are lying in the village, leaving many places many feet deep. many people have been evacuated, some are too ill to be evacuated in some cases. many older people are in their homes and are being served by a very large community effort, and i'm thankful to say that people from 20 or even 30 miles away are going long distances to avoid flooded roads to bring them out bring supplies to the local church. what is absolutely critical, and any listener can hear this, please respond, we desperately need to large diesel engine pumps,
6:05 pm
12 inch pipework to pump out the water in the village, because if the river rises again tonight or tomorrow, in conjunction with a high tide and a further fall of rain coming from the pennines, and we have more over banking, the water flowing over the banks into the village, the village simply will not be able to cope. there are millions of pounds of damage caused already. tha nkfully of pounds of damage caused already. thankfully no loss of life. we urgently need heavy duty pumps very quickly to stem the water and remove it from the village before any more arrives. i know you'll put out that appeals via social media and local radio. if anyone is listening, we are happy to put them in touch if they get in touch with those. in terms of what the environment agency has said, they have said they don't expect it but water is to go down for at least the next 2a hours, so, in some ways, you feel this is a
6:06 pm
more dangerous moment than a couple of days ago we had the initial flooding? there are two acute situations, one is the existing environmental agency pumping system is nowhere near adequate to cope with the level of water. i waited three quarters of a mio in three or four feet deep to get here. there is a danger to life, and the environment agency should look seriously at that immediately. we asked this afternoon for them to drop sandbags to prop that up. if either of those walls gives way at high tide today, the volume of water flowing into the spillage could lead to serious loss of life. it's not a time for delaying and procrastinating, is a time for immediate action. they have said in the statement and it has been backed up the statement and it has been backed up by the statement and it has been backed up by doncaster council said, look, the council can send people in because if there is any risk they there is at risk, but that's what
6:07 pm
there is at risk, but that's what the fire and rescue crews are on their part. they were urging people when this was issued at 2:15 to get out, and if they can't to get onto the emergency services. you are doing admirable work, but given the advice, i would doing admirable work, but given the advice, iwould be doing admirable work, but given the advice, i would be better to leave the village altogether, wouldn't it? that wouldn't be practical. there are businesses and homes in all sorts of things going on. it's not easy for people just to operate like that. there is a scope at present time for additional pumping, substantial pumping to be brought into fix the situation. i am speaking on behalf of flood flood wardens who have been taken ill or lost phones. it is not a time for procrastination. i asked the environment agency to take it seriously and consider the fact that when they were asked on friday to do certain things, they went on. it is time action was taken.
6:08 pm
peter pridham there. well, the environment agency has sent this statement about the floods. it reads "the environment agency is continuing to operate and check flood defences and pumps to manage the huge volume of water as it moves through the catchment" — it goes on to say, that infrastructure and pumping has so far helped to protect 4,000 properties from flooding." we will bring you more as soon as we get it in the course of this evening here on bbc news. the conservatives and labour have clashed over their spending plans with the tories claiming a jeremy corbyn led government would bring an economic crisis ‘within months'. the chancellor sajid javid said today that labour would spend over a trillion pounds in office — a figure dismissed by labour as ‘bad maths‘ and an ‘absolute work of fiction‘. here‘s our political correspondentjessica parker. the two men competing to run the country‘s finances. the conservatives claim that labour‘s plans amount to an unaffordable splurge. but is there maths up to scratch?
6:09 pm
every single costing in this dossier that we‘ve published today has either come from labour‘s own figures and most of them, over 50% of the costings from labour‘s own figures and the rest of them have either come from independent external sources and in some cases, yes, we have had to work them out ourselves. but we‘ve done that in a reasonable way and we have set out exactly in the document how we‘ve done this. they‘ve even set up a website, listing some contentious claims about the so—called cost of corbyn. £196 billion to renationalise industries like the railway is already a disputed figure. 85 billion to bring in a four day working week. the conservative dossier assumes that such plans would all quickly come into force. 35 billion to abolish private schools? labour conference voted on the idea, but the party‘s actual election policy hasn‘t been confirmed. this is an absolute work of fiction
6:10 pm
by the conservatives, you can't trust a word that johnson and his ministers say on this issue. we will have a fully costed manifesto in due course, when we launch that. and, you know, the challenge is actually for the conservatives to fully cost their own manifesto, something they didn't do in 2017. the purse strings are loosening in this place, whichever way you look at it. the parties believe that there is an appetite for more public spending. so, the debate is likely to range around whose plans strike the right balance between being responsible, but also truly radical. economic crisis... the tories‘ increase in spending would be less than labour‘s but the conservatives are trying to shake off the age of austerity. it's a bit as if you'd come to me ten years ago and taken my raincoat away and i've spent ten years cold and wet and then you've tapped me on the shoulder and said, "great news, i found you a rain coat".
6:11 pm
well, it‘s worth recalling, back in 2010, where our economy was. we had just gone from deepest recession in almost 100 years. until manifestos had actually unveiled things are a little bit up in the air. liberal democrats say that the parties should submit their plans for independent analysis. the arguments over what this country can afford are onlyjust beginning. jessica parker, bbc news. the greetings card chain clintons is considering shop closures and rent cuts as part of a survival plan to save around 2,500 jobs. it comes after reports that the retailer wants to close 66 of its 332 shops. a clintons spokeswoman told the bbc that "discussions are continuing" with landlords "but no decisions have been made". turkey says eight civilians have been killed in a bomb attack in northeast syria. the explosion happened near the town of tal abyad — an area controlled by turkish troops and their syrian rebel allies.
6:12 pm
images from the scene show a column of black smoke rising into the air. rescue workers say a bomb in a vehicle exploded outside a bakery. turkey has blamed the syrian kurdish ypg militia for the blast. the ypg hasn‘t yet responded to the allegation. turkey regards the kurdish fighters as terrorists, and wants them pushed away from the frontier. bolivia‘s president has announced new elections will be held after serious irregualtities were found in the vote held last month. a report by the organisation of american states says there were clear evidence of manipulation in the poll, won by evo morales, which sparked protests across bolivia. speaking at a news conference in the capital la paz, president morales said the country‘s electoral body would be replaced, after it stopped counting votes without explanation last month, sparking widespread allegations of fraud. we‘ll be hearing a little later from south america about the reaction to
6:13 pm
the president‘s statement. the royal family, senior politicians and diplomats havejoined veterans and religious leaders at the cenotaph in central london to mark remembrance sunday. the prince of wales led the wreath—laying in memory of those who‘ve died in conflict. 0ur royal correspondent, nicholas witchell, reports. it is that morning of the year when we pause, when the matters which seem so pressing on other days, are set in a broader perspective. as the nation comes together to remember those who lost their lives in the world wars, and other more recent conflicts. the leaders of the main political parties took their places at the cenotaph, with their wreaths of red poppies. watching from a balcony, her majesty the queen with the duchess of cornwall and the duchess of cambridge. the prince of wales led the other principal members of the royal family to their positions, in front of the cenotaph‘s northern face, in readiness for the national two—minute silence at 11 o‘clock.
6:14 pm
big ben chimes the hour. music: last post. after the two—minute silence, the prince of wales placed the queen‘s wreath at the cenotaph, in tribute to all those from britain and the commonwealth, who lost their lives in the service of their country. wreaths were also laid by the dukes of york, sussex and cambridge. and, then, after the official wreath laying by political leaders, military chiefs and high commissioners, it was the turn of the former servicemen and women who attend the parade, year after year. they come with their own memories of colleagues who were lost in war.
6:15 pm
at war memorials across the country, the nation remembered. in cornwall, a veteran laid a wreath in memory of those who died in the d—day landing 75 years ago. in kent, a war dakotas scattered 750,000 poppies. a ribbon of scarlet above the white cliffs of doverin of scarlet above the white cliffs of dover in memory of those who never came home. nicholas witchell, bbc news. the headlines on bbc news... the environment agency continues to warn there‘s a danger to life from high river levels in south yorkshire — with seven severe warnings still in place. the chancellor defends conservative party analysis of labour‘s spending plans — as labour says they are a complete work of fiction. the royal family lead tributes to those who lost their lives in conflict as the uk marks remembrance sunday.
6:16 pm
voters in spain are returning to the polls for the country‘s second general election injust over six months. it's it‘s fourth in as many years. the socialists, led by the acting prime minister, pedro sanchez, won the most seats in the last ballot in april but were unable to form a government. spain has been struggling to put stable governments together since 2015 and this year‘s vote has also been overshadowed by fresh unrest in catalonia. earlier i spoke to the spanish journalist sara canals, who explained that the central issue for this election has been the catalan crisis... 0n the one hand, the spanish supreme court imprisoned the catalan leaders who organised the referendum of independence two years ago, which triggered mass protests across catalonia, also social unrest, and even a week of violent episodes. also, the supreme court sent new warrants of arrest to those
6:17 pm
who fled spain after this failed attempt to declare independence and who are now living in belgium, in scotland, in switzerland. so there has been a lot in this last few weeks and months. so it has been the main topic of the campaign, and there has even been little discussion for issues like the economy or education or health care, or even climate change. so the whole campaign has been mainly focused on how to approach this crisis. is there any indication that the election itself will offer any kind of hope for resolving it? given that the parties in madrid say they are upholding the constitution by opposing moves towards independence, and the pro—independence parties, of course, you have some seats, some at least in the madrid parliament, and they are saying, "no, this is about democracy." exactly. well, this election again will be another opportunity for the catalan pro—independence parties to evaluate the momentum of the independence
6:18 pm
movement as a whole. they did get more than 20 seats in the last elections, and we will see what happens tonight. but if the pro—independence parties achieve a good result, this could be used as a bargaining chip to maybe negotiate or achieve some dialogue. 0rjust make some moves. also, on the other hand, we have seen how the far right groups have adopted a tougher stance on catalonia as well. they suggest that they want to ban all the political parties that favour independence, and they also reject any sort of dialogue. so definitely all the parties that support independence in catalonia are really looking for where to get a representation in congress so they can maybe take further steps for a potential dialogue, or even a potential referendum.
6:19 pm
we have to remember that the catalan president quim torra had stated after the verdict came out that he would organise a second referendum of independence. which also actually triggered some division amongst the pro—independence parties. because there is also a division amongst the catalan parties, even though we have seen that in the streets, the social movement on independence is more united than what we see in the political arena. firefighters tackling around a hundred bushfires in australia say they could now start to threaten sydney. at least three people have died in the fires in new south wales and queensland. helena wilkinson has the latest. the scale and ferocity of these fires is clear. this is new south wales on the east coast of australia, being ravaged by the flames. three days since the wildfires
6:20 pm
began, they‘re still burning and spreading. more than 1,000 firefighters are working across this state in queensland to try and contain them, but conditions are difficult. it‘s just the worst thing i‘ve ever seen, honestly. the fire front is coming at us. there‘s nothing you could do about it. lost a few friends in the fire, lost all my possessions. possessions are nothing. it‘s the people that count, eh. the devastating power of these fires is clear to see. this used to be what someone called home. now there‘s nothing left. 150 homes have so far been destroyed and thousands of people have had to evacuate. australia‘s prime minister says he‘s proud of how people have helped each other. people have reached out, got people out of homes, made sure they got to safety, looked after each other‘s livestock and animals, talking to each other, putting themselves in harm‘s way for each other.
6:21 pm
i‘ve got to tell you, as a prime minister, i‘m never more proud of australians than in moments like this. as the fires continue, officials say things are likely to get worse. extreme warnings for large parts of the new south wales coast are likely to be issued this week, with areas around sydney especially at risk. helena wilkinson, bbc news. officials say at least 20 people have died in a cyclone near the border between india and bangladesh. it‘s brought winds of up to a 135 kilometres an hour — and heavy rain. tim allman reports. in the city of khulna, the wait was over. the storm had finally arrived. heavy rain and strong winds lashing much of this part of bangladesh and neighbouring india. the streets were mostly empty. a handful of cars, pedestrians, and the odd lorry
6:22 pm
braving the weather. most had fled. anything up to two million people have been moved into thousands of cyclone shelters. volunteers and members of the army going village to village, door to door, telling everyone to leave. the wind and the rain are bad enough, but then there‘s the storm surge, expected to be as high as two metres. already, the damage was being done. translation: the water's taking away our shops, houses, roads, and embankment. since yesterday, a lot of our land has gone into the water. in the last 2a hours, this huge cyclone has moved across the bay of bengal, heading towards india and bangladesh. as it moves in a north—easterly direction, it is expected to weaken. only when the storm has passed will the people know if the preparations and precautions have worked, and whether potentially
6:23 pm
thousands of lives will have been saved. tim allman, bbc news. let‘s return now to news that the royal family and senior politicians have joined military veterans and religious leaders at the cenotaph in central london to remember the fallen in conflicts over the last two centuries. as part of the commemorations, a spectacular 750,000 poppies cascaded over the white cliffs of dover. they were carried in a second world war dakota dropped from an altitude of 500 feet over the battle of britain memorial. five veterans, including former raf servicemen, were on board the aircraft. the poppies were all purchased from royal british legion for nearly £a,000. 0ur correspondent sarah campbell has more on the poppy appeal and the events marking remembrance day at the cenotaph. as always, a very moving ceremony. the pavements absolutely packed with people that have been here for a couple of hours waiting to observe the two minutes‘ silence.
6:24 pm
you can probably hear the bands behind me. because it is the march of the veterans. up to 10,000 veterans who are marching past the cenotaph, organised by the royal british legion. from there, i have alex 0wen. this is a really important event for veterans to be involved in, isn‘t it? yeah, it is hugely important. for the veterans you see here today, but also for the 6.7 million members of the armed forces community up and down the country, this is just one event that happens in the nation‘s capital. in towns and cities across the county, we will see similar things. so it is important that we come out and recognise those who defended our freedom and liberty that we enjoy today. the poppy appeal this year, what have been the themes? what is the message you are trying to emphasise this year? anyone that saw the commemorations down at portsmouth for d—day 75 this year will know that it has been a pivotal moment for the battles that took place 75 years ago in 191m during the second world war when the tide turned. and our military people,
6:25 pm
our serving people made those amazing sacrifices, alongside our commonwealth and allies to be able to bring us the freedoms we enjoy now. this year, i am personally thinking about veterans that i have spoken to recently who fought in monte cassino. a chap called bushey, who is 98—years—old now, and i spoke to him, and he said, "if it wasn‘t for the polish soldiers that he was fighting shoulder to shoulder with, he would still be in monte cassino." i think that sense of comradeship is spread across both the generation of 75 years ago but also the generation today. my trip in afghanistan, we had a nigerian, south african, i was commanded by agony in and we handed over to americans at the end of the tour. none of that we would have been able to do without those guys. you were here today. how important is it to come and be a part of the ceremony? well, i found it,
6:26 pm
is it to come and be a part of the ceremony? well, ifound it, as usual, very poignant. there is a lot of formality to this event, and rightly so. the other memorials and ceremonies taking place across the country that you mentioned, they can perhaps be a little more affecting. but the two—minute silence always makes one, as one should do, reflect the main things one remembers or re calls. the main things one remembers or recalls. people, friends who have sacrificed their lives over the last campaigns, and friends i knew, but also my forebears. you were in seven tours of afghanistan, so like you say, this will remind you of people you have known? yes, it always does. during that two minutes you will see a sea of faces passing through 1‘s
6:27 pm
mind, and considering what they did and the sacrifices that they‘ve made, freedom doesn‘t come cheap. every year, for these two minutes, we are reminded of that. if i could just come back to you, the poppy appeal is asking people to, as it directly aimed at young people to put their devices down for two minutes today and tomorrow. ? is there a concern that they as the distance between the two world wars gets further away, perhaps events like this may mean less to younger people? i'm not sure that it means less. i think that tomorrow on armistice day, it marks 100 days of us armistice day, it marks 100 days of us marking 100 years of the first world war with him and it sounds. it 110w world war with him and it sounds. it now means much more than that, and we mark the fall in from all conflicts. but tomorrow, 100 years on, we have that chance to look at society and how society are reacting and get them to put down those la pto ps, and get them to put down those laptops, close those phones, turn—up technology and just reflect for two minutes. they gave their lives, the
6:28 pm
least we can do is give them two minutes of our time. thank you very much indeed. 0ther minutes of our time. thank you very much indeed. other than that, allowing people to take the time to reflect on people who give so much in the service of the country. now it‘s time for the weather. it has been, thankfully, much drier today. this however, there are still several severe flood warnings in force, currently, and numerous flood warnings across parts of england. there are now met office warnings out for more rain, more details on the website. already, that rain is marching in across northern ireland, it will turn a little bit wintry. we are looking at our first significant fall of snow across the hills of scotland, mainly north of the central belt but blowing around with the strong winds. more in the areas where we already seen such devastating floods, a cause for concern.
6:29 pm
this rain band should move fairly steadily overnight, it will be blown along by a very strong wind, still around in southern areas and in the north—east first thing on monday morning. not a particularly pleasant morning rush with all the spray and standing water on the roads, and the snow across the highlands of scotland. through the course of monday, that weather front is still with us across the north—east of scotland in particular, it should clear elsewhere. by no means dry, that strong north—westerly wind will blow in showers. given the strength of the wind, they will be blowing further eastwards as well. because it is cold air from the north—west, we will see sleet across the hills of scotland, not necessarily further south but there could be a smattering across the pennines. it will feel cold on tuesday, the low pressure still with us, showers and longer spells of rain meandering around that area of low pressure. again, some areas where we have seen that flooding,
6:30 pm
we are expecting more rainfall, hence a met office warning for some areas. still a brisk wind coming down from the north, a really chilly feeling, temperatures below par this week. a cold tuesday night into wednesday, it does look as though we will have a brief window of dry weather, but by the end of wednesday, the next weather front comes in. a widespread frost could be quite icy on wednesday morning given the amount of rainfall we have seen recently, there will be more rain rolling into the western side of the uk, there could become an issue for central parts through the course of thursday. bye— bye.
6:31 pm
hello, this is bbc news. the headlines... seven severe flood warnings remain along south yorkshire‘s river don, meaning there‘s a threat to life for those in the area. if the river rises again tonight or tomorrow, and in conjunction with a high tide and a further fall of rain, the village was in the not be able to cope. the tories say a jeremy corbyn government could cause an economic crisis within months of coming to power. labour calls the claim a complete work of fiction. remembering the fallen of the world wars, and the conflicts since.
6:32 pm
voters in spain return to the polls for the country‘s fourth general election in as many years. hello and welcome to sportsday. i‘m gavin ramjaun. liverpool‘s incredible form rolls on, victory over manchester city sees them go eight points clear at the top. it‘s tight at the top in scotland. rangers win, but a goal difference ofjust one separates them and celtic.
6:33 pm
and history repeating. england win their t20 decider against new zealand, after another super—0ver. also coming up in the programme... hannah cockroft sets a new world record to win her fifth consecutive t3li100m title, at the world para—athletics championships in dubai and who can stop djokovic? as he seeks to return to world number one status at the atp finals in london. hello and welcome to sportsday. i‘m gavin ramjaun. we were expecting a premier league thriller, and we got one! top—of—the—table liverpool well and truly put champions manchester city in their place at anfield today. the reds‘ incredible form in the league continues. they‘ve only dropped two points so far this season. nick parrott reports.
6:34 pm
it isa it is a fixture that has seen controversy off the pitch and intensity on it. manchester city we re intensity on it. manchester city were fearing a hostile welcome, there were jeers and gestures, but nothing more. liverpool haven‘t lost in the league since january, but that was at manchester city. while anfield is a fortress which hasn‘t seen anfield is a fortress which hasn‘t seen a anfield is a fortress which hasn‘t seen a defeat for two and a half yea rs. seen a defeat for two and a half years. there was drama from the start in there! when a city penalty appeal was waved away. the report launched a counterattack and found the net. this could turn out to be one of the most important goals of the season. while the champions were feeling hard done by by the video assistant referee, liverpool made the most of the disarray. mohamed salah making the most of it. let stand 15 minutes gone, the game already felt up. last weekend, city manager pep guardiola accused sadia manet of being a diver. early in the
6:35 pm
second half, the striker gave his emphatic reply. his revenge served cold, liverpool on fire. but city managed to douse it thanks to bernardo silva man for the first time in the match, anxiety crept in asa time in the match, anxiety crept in as a city tried to fight back. it was a nervy ending after such a positive start. but it is still love looking like the gap between these two will take a lot to close. so this is how it looks at the top of the table this evening. liverpool eight points clear of second placed leicester and third placed chelsea. and nine points ahead of champions manchester city. in the earlier kick—offs, manchester united gained a valuable three points taking them up to seventh, with a win over brighton. andreas pereira and davy propper‘s own goal put 0le gunnar solskjaer‘s side two up by half time. lewis dunk pulled one back for brighton,
6:36 pm
but united hit back straightaway, marcus rashford restoring their two—goal advantage. the victory moves them up to seventh, just one point behind arsenal in sixth. excellent performance by the lads. i thought they were on the front foot, attacking. when you see these boys going forward, as we did today, it is a joy to watch. we need to keep on improving, keep on winning games, and see where it takes us. wolves have moved into the top half of the table for the first time since the opening weekend after beating aston villa 2—1 in the west midlands derby. it was their first victory over villa in the top flight for more than a0 years. jim lumsden reports. wolves were unbeaten in six league games and on the verge of qualification for the knockout stages of the europa league, evidence of fatigue would be understandable. but the energy levels seemed unaffected. villa were constantly on the back foot, and as the half hour approached, diogojota should have
6:37 pm
given wolves the lead. a doubtless much—rehearsed free kick from moutinho, finished in style by neves. 11 of his goals have been scored from outside the penalty area. after the break, villa made a game of it, before wolves gained control. villa got a lifeline with a late strike, but 2—1 is finished. wolves up to eighth, villa drifting towards the drop zone. 0ur idea in the first half, we controlled villa, we played them, we opened them and created many chances. the goal came late, but it was deserved. you could see a lot of chances. this is what makes me proud, not records, it is a daily basis through the competitions, and the way they run is amazing. bristol city have moved up to sixth
6:38 pm
in the championship after winning 1—0 at cardiff. the robins‘ captain josh brownhill struck in spectacular style midway through the second half to inflict cardiff‘s first home defeat of the season. the welsh side remain 14th in the table. it‘s been a day to forget for a number of league clubs in the first round of the fa cup. macclesfield were one of those to lose to lower league opposition. the league two side were beaten 4—0 by isthmian premier division team kingstonian. louie theophanous scoring twice. macclesfield were forced to play five loanees and six youth team players, as the first team continued a strike over unpaid salaries. and from sol campbell‘s old club, to current club — league one southend — who have also been knocked out. they were beaten 1—0 by non—league dover. ruel sotiriou with the winner on his debut. a shock too for leyton orient, as they lost 2—1 to maldon and tiptree who play in the eighth
6:39 pm
tier of the league pyramid. all the results, and highlights, can be found on the bbc sport website. celtic remain top of the scottish premiership following a 2—0 victory at home to motherwell. but rangers kept up the pressure on celtic by winning 2—0 away to livingston. joe aribo and alfredo morelos scored for rangers. it‘s tight at the top; rangers are level on points with celtic, but are behind on a goal difference ofjust one. in rugby union, two games in the premiership today — earlier london irish beat leicester tiger 36—11. there was plenty of drama in the late kick—off, as bristol came back from a 17 point deficit at half time to claim a late victory against exeter chiefs — winning 20 points to 17.
6:40 pm
that result means they leapfrog northampton to go top of the table. history repeats itself for the england cricket team. they beat new zealand in a thrilling final decider of their twenty20 series. and they did after another dramatic super—over, just like they did against the same opponents to win july‘s world cup final. adam wild has more. they say lightning never strikes twice, but in auckland, the conditions were an ominous sign. when the rain finally stopped, and cricket got started, the thunderous blows soon followed. new zealand with a lightening fast start. the black caps batting‘ lighting up the skies. jonny bairstow soon took charge of the reply, part of england‘s one—day world cup winning side that so narrowly beat new zealand in the summer, surely it couldn‘t get so close this time? yet here was chrisjordan, four needed off the final ball to tie the scores. a boundary did just that. few could believe it had happened again. and so to the super over, and bairstow once more going up and over. the target set.

6:44 pm
this week on the travel show, i found out how punks helped to end this week on the travel show, i found out how punk helped to end the cold war. this weekend marks the 30th anniversary of the fall of the berlin wall, back in november 1989.
6:45 pm
poland was the first eastern bloc country to turn its back on communism, earlier that year. but those iconic images of the wall coming down here in berlin really did confirm that the cold war in europe was coming to an end. 0n the evening of november 9, 1989, the whole world watched the destruction of the berlin wall. a structure that divided notjust the city, but families, nations, and superpowers. stretching over 80 miles, the wall was built to divide the communist east and the capitalist west. today, only small sections of it still remain, and crossing it is no trouble at all. many cultural and political factors
6:46 pm
contributed to the destruction of the wall, but few captured the mood of the time as much as music. in the west, megastars like david bowie and bruce springsteen both played protest gigs by the partition. but in the east, under the watchful eye of the secret police, an underground scene was forming. it was angry, it was anarchic, and it was a breakaway from control. it was punk music.
6:47 pm
chaos was the frontman for wuta nfall. one of the top bands. east germany‘s secret police, the stasi, regularly targeted defiant anti—authoritarian punks. 0n multiple occasions, chaos was imprisoned and brutally beaten.
6:48 pm
back then, the intense scrutiny of the stasi meant that gigs often had to be held in the unlikeliest of locations. this is the place. wow, this is pretty spectacular. yeah, it‘s a church. i can‘t imagine hundreds of punks coming to a church for a concert. yeah, with hundreds of beer.
6:49 pm
what was the vibe and the energy like in here? when you think about those times, those difficult times during the gdr, where you were intimidated,
6:50 pm
you were intimidated by the stasi and the problems that you had amongst the people in the streets, would you do it again? absolutely. punk was the soundtrack to an era of mounting defiance against the gdr, an era that culminated with the destruction of the wall. now, 30 years on, this underground history is finally surfacing. in the aptly named punk bar, kirk von unter, from underground‘, a band is rehearsing for 0st art, a two day festival taking place this
6:51 pm
weekend designed to pay tribute to the subculture that provided a lifeline for so many. 0st art is a festival in berlin in honour of the anniversary of the fall of the berlin wall. a good chance to get the younger people in touch with the history in the end. it‘s not like i have to read some books or whatever, you can feel it. for me, the real punks were in the gdr, not in the west, because they really had to deal with repression, police, and it was really a big thing to do this. the stakes were much higher for the punks in the gdr. yeah. today has been really surprising. it makes me think of what it must have been like in this city on the night that the berlin wall came down, the energy that must have crackled through it, and how much of that energy
6:52 pm
was driven by punk music. but what else is also cool is the fact that the next generation here are putting on events like the 0st art festival, which is helping to keep the memory alive of that counterculture, the counterculture of punk music that had to fight so hard just to exist. this weekend, there are dozens of anniversary events taking place all over berlin, but if you are planning a trip later than that, don‘t worry, because there‘s still plenty of things to see and do. at the new timeride berlin, you have a chance to go through a vr recreation of the divided city.
6:53 pm
following a walkthrough exhibition, you can board a bus all the way back to the 1980s, taking in gdr landmarks like checkpoint charlie, and the old parliament, the palace of the republic. or you can explore some of the incredible tunnels that helped over 300 east berliners escape under the wall. the berliner unterwelt museum helps two hosts exhibited to us, the berliner unterwelt museum hosts exhibits and tours, but being underground, the accessibility is limited. november also sees the planned completion of the berlin handshake project, a collection of almost 11,000 clay moulds, one for each day since the wall came down. the berlin handshake project is shown at the documentation centre at the bernauer strasse. it‘s bringing two people together and asking them to shake hands, and in this handshake we put a ball of clay. your other hand, you can also squeeze. this is a beautiful handshake. look at that.
6:54 pm
wow. out of 11,000 of these handshakes, we build a wall of unification. we have the prototype here, and in the future there will also be something outside that you can see. sadly, that‘s your lot for this week. don‘t forget, you can follow us on social media to keep up with us on all our adventures. but until next time, from me, ade adepitan, and all the travel show team here in berlin, it‘s auf wiedersehen.
6:55 pm
