months, so reconstruction can begin. it took an evening to burn through this building. it'll take much more than a single night to really save it. lucy williamson, bbc news, paris. now it's time for the weather, with mel coles. hello there. for many, wednesday was a quieter day. there were some good spells of sunshine around, and for many areas it was dry. but not for all. down towards the south—west of england and into wales, the next weather system began to show its hand. down to an area of low pressure sending this rain bearing weather front our way, which will be a feature of our weather for the next couple of days. we start thursday with rain draped across south—west england, up into wales and across to east anglia. it is heavy, persistent and slow—moving. gradually it starts to pivot north and west words, but places like still and gloucestershire could see afairamount of
still and gloucestershire could see a fair amount of rain through the day, and the risk is it is going to edge its way into areas that have already been flooded. down towards the far south there will be some sharp showers. drier conditions to the north of this band of rain, but still some showers feeding in on a brisk, north—easterly wind. and that certainly won't help the temperatures, which are struggling, mid— single figures at best. into thursday evening, and our band of rain meanders further northwards. and as it does so, it will lose some of its momentum and begin to fragment a little. there will be further wintry showers feeding into parts of northern scotland, and here on friday morning there is the risk of some ice. temperatures will drop low freezing once again, those temperatures not dropping away quite so temperatures not dropping away quite so far the further south you come, but it will still be a chilly start to friday morning. and it remains u nsettled, to friday morning. and it remains unsettled, with low pressure firmly in the driving seat. now, here is oui’ in the driving seat. now, here is our weather front. it may produce some snow across the hills of england before it gradually works its way towards the south and west. around that area of low pressure we will see further spells of rain
through friday, some dry intervals, but the rain turning more persistent perhaps to east anglia and down towards the south—east corner later on in the day. the cold theme continues, then, into the weekend, and while there will be some dry intervals, it will also be some rain at times. we have still got that low pressure close by, breezy at times as well, with some rain. now, through saturday with got a north—easterly breeze which is quite a cold direction to be coming from. noticeable i think down the north the coast. there will be some dry intervals, but a fair amount of cloud throughout the day and spells of rain at times, and feeling cold across the board. those temperatures below average for the time of year. a bit ofa below average for the time of year. a bit of a change on sunday, with the wind becoming more of a northerly wind. still a cold direction to be coming from. quite a lot of cloud around, certainly for the southern half of the uk, with further spells of rain. some brightness around perhaps for northern ireland and parts of scotla nd northern ireland and parts of scotland as we go to the afternoon. now, as we start next week looks as
though a bit of a battle starts to ta ke though a bit of a battle starts to take base. the ridge of high pressure out towards the west. we got low pressure out towards the east. the positioning of these two systems depends on how far west this rain makes progress. and there is the risk that, if it works its way a little further westwards, it may push into areas that have seen the recent flooding. at the moment it looks as though the best of the dry, bright weather will be the further west you go. still feeling cold, though, with bridges mid to high single figures. as we head further into next week, at the moment it looks as though low pressure winds out. and we start to draw up more of a southerly flow as we head towards the middle part of the week, which should help to lift the temperatures back to where they should be for this time of year. there's a lot of moisture in this area, though, and we're looking to the atlantic for oui’ we're looking to the atlantic for our weather systems, so it looks as though we will see spells of rain at times. for now. —— goodbye for now. hello.
this is bbc news with rebecca jones. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow morning's papers in a moment. first, the headlines: sorting brexit is the "key to driving the country forward", says borisjohnson, as he calls for people to give the conservatives a majority so they can deliver it. meanwhile, labourfocuses on the nhs vowing to outspend the tories with an extra multibillion pound cash boost for the health service. labour will end austerity to bring waiting lists down, stabilise our accident emergency services and deliver the quality cancer care patients deserve. the army arrives in south yorkshire to help with flood relief as some in the worst—hit areas are told it could be weeks before they can return home. after weeks behind closed doors, the first public hearings in donald trump's impeachment inquiry begin in washington broadcast live on tv.
hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are broadcaster david davies and anna isaac from the wall street journal. welcome to you both. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the metro's front page story shows borisjohnson being heckled by members of the public as he visited flood—hit areas of yorkshire today. the telegraph focuses on tensions between the brexit party and the conservatives, after nigel farage demands a more favourable pact between his party and boris johnson's. the guardian features an interview with unite‘s leader and corbyn supporter len mccluskey, who has said he will urge the party to take a tougher line over freedom of movement for workers. meanwhile, the mail says
on its front page that the labour leader has made a huge mistake in saying that the deceased leader of isis, abu bakr al—baghdadi, "should only have been arrested." and labour is also on the front page of the times, which says the party is split over plans for a four—day week. and the ft leads with a story about how health websites are sharing sensitive medical information with advertising firms, by using tracking cookies while you surf the web. so, a variety of front pages but the election features in some shape or form on all of them. david, i am admiring the fact you have blue and red pens. you are taking notes. and you have a green one?” red pens. you are taking notes. and you have a green one? i thinkl red pens. you are taking notes. and you have a green one? i think i have an orange one somewhere as you have a green one? i think i have an orange one somewhere as well... of course you have. let's start with the guardian. this is len mccluskey,
a keyjeremy corbyn ally, but it's worth putting this in context for us. worth putting this in context for us. len mccluskey, general secretary of the unite union has never been slow to be critical for the, example, going against labour party policy. but if the guardian is to be believed in this story, he is doing exactly the same himself in opposing any attempts to exactly the same himself in opposing a ny attem pts to exta nt exactly the same himself in opposing any attempts to extant free movement of workers are supported by the most recent labour party conference in brighton, or at least that is what this story is arguing. and the motive, you would assume, for mr mccluskey is about those crucial marginal seats in the midlands and
the northwest as well. and it will be interesting to see how this plays out. now you would think, this is what is beyond the credibility of some of us, these sorts of issues and disagreements. and the other one we had about today betweenjonathan, john mcdonald particularly, and here's ministerfor john mcdonald particularly, and here's minister for the john mcdonald particularly, and here's ministerfor the health service arguing about will the four day we were policy referred to nhs workers? —— and his health minister. one saying at breakfast time no, it won't because it can't, than mcdonald saying of course it does. so it's a — it's extraordinary to me what sort of preparation there has been for this general election. it's interesting. we should say the guardian has dug this as exclusive, haven't they? and len mccluskey‘s
intervention comes ahead of a meeting on saturday which signs of the labour manifesto. so there is still stuff to play for. there is this final our thing, still stuff to play for. there is this final ourthing, here is still stuff to play for. there is this final our thing, here is the final play, using the media to get the point across and broaden the conversation. —— final. freedom of movement is directly tied to labour party's stands on brexit. we have been told time and time again you cannot pick and choose from the four freedoms that are fundamental to the single market. if you want elements of the single market, you simply will not be able to get them from brussels or win them without a commitment to freedom of movement. there is also a fundamental problem here when it discusses cutting, undercutting workers' wages, it's important to challenge that and so that net, across the whole, certain sectors have been affected by
immigration but overall net immigrants haven't undercut workers deposit salaries. that is important to bear in mind —— workers' salaries, and that is important to bearin salaries, and that is important to bear in mind in this discussion. but the nature of brexit in so much as it is about having a domestic policy that might suit everyone hours. let's move on to the ft. pacts make the front pages. joe swinson has given an interview to the financial times ruling out helping outjeremy corbyn into number ten ——jo swinson. she has a very difficult path over the next — already, but over the next four weeks. she has made it very clear that
conservatives are going to say and are already saying, if you vote lib dem, you risk putting jeremy corbyn backin dem, you risk putting jeremy corbyn back in number ten downing street —— in numberten back in number ten downing street —— in number ten downing st. she has we are going to spyjeremy corbyn, we are going to spyjeremy corbyn, we are going to spyjeremy corbyn, we are going —— we are not going to supportjeremy corbyn, it will be interesting to see if there is another hung parliament. and if, as she is saying in this interview with the ft, her preferred option is to have another 2020 election, well, is the public going to be grateful for the public going to be grateful for the party who made it possible to have yet another general election in 2020? you wonder. it is interesting, isn't it, it is almost as if she was slightly prodded into saying that she would prefer to have another election than a pact? i think she was burst into it by canny
questioning. but the point is if you wa nt questioning. but the point is if you want to have a line —— pushed, saying we will not support jeremy corbyn going into it, she has said repeatedly know that jeremy corbyn or borisjohnson is repeatedly know that jeremy corbyn or boris johnson is fit to be repeatedly know that jeremy corbyn or borisjohnson is fit to be prime minister. if you are going to pursue that statement to its natural course, it means you will pursue any outcome that means they won't be in numberten. but outcome that means they won't be in number ten. but based on what we understand with the voting public at the moment, it will be hard to see them not in that binary situation. there is a little line on the side of the story aboutjo swinson. datawatch, favourable reviews of the eu have risen in several countries in recent years even as eurosceptic parties have gained ground. greece in particular has seen a surge in positive opinion. but if i am to believe this, it would seem the uk
as well has a more positive view between 2016— 2019. as well has a more positive view between 2016- 2019. does the national average correlate with key marginals? i think that is the caveat. and on the front of the telegraph, it is whether there will bea telegraph, it is whether there will be a deal between the conservative party and nigel farage's brexit party. according to this headline in the daily telegraph, tories offer nigel farage and 11th hour deal. we can say christopher hope, the chief political correspondent does have some contacts in the conservative party. i think we can assume some conversation was probably hard. now this is about whether or not the tories would field candidates in 40 key marginal seats. the independent brexit party are hoping to win? that
the brexit party are hoping to win. these are key marginals for labour, but they are perceived as leave seeds. the brexit party said he would —— they would only put paper candidates and not try hard, but that wasn't good enough for him. there is a huge amount of pressure to say don't lead jeremy corbyn in by splitting the brexit vote. don't split the brexit vote, but then not being seen by his own party and that own rounds will have to effectively abandon ship. and you did see from the leave candidates some bar class, why have we made this deal with the tories? and the deadline, david, for nominations, for seats is tomorrow.
and that is the big thing. is it a real deadline? or could you have withdrawals if the polls, some of us may argue they haven't had a good few years, but they are still being believed by some people. if they narrow and i seem to narrow, could you still have candidates effectively withdrawing, i'll be losing their deposits, but effectively saying don't vote for me, it will be interesting to see —— albeit losing their deposits. the other story that has been dominating the news, the beginning of the impeachment proceedings against donald trump in washington. trump tied ukraine plot in testimony. i was quite a bit of it. it didn't seem was quite a bit of it. it didn't seem that we found out a tremendous amount that was new. but the big
difference was up until now everything has been going on behind closed doors and this was in full glare of the cameras, wasn't it? there is a big psychological impact when the testimony starts happening, the show opens out and people start hearing it and seeing it and it has more realness to it. it's more immediate for people watching it and people can garner the information themselves rather than having to get everything through different modes of reporting. as you say, there wasn't an enormous development, but there was a significant point where you had this reporter phone call through and a, the ambassador to the us, william taylor, saying that a conversation had, according to what he heard, a conversation between president trump and gordon sondland, the us ambassador to europe, specifically said supported the squid profile point —— quid pro quo
point that unless an investigation was open, aid wouldn't be delivered. and that is about whether there was this fundamental abuse of power, fitness for office. it is interesting, because bad behaviour doesn't necessarily mean you have work the law, does it? behaviour doesn't necessarily mean you have work the law, does mm does not, and the other thing i am interested in in all of this is the impact on mr biden as the likely... oras impact on mr biden as the likely... or as the front runner, the likely democratic nominee. watching him on television, i said democratic nominee. watching him on television, isaid i democratic nominee. watching him on television, i said i was in america quite recently, watching him on television, i mean, he isn't the youngest man i have ever seen as a candidate in an american election, because that is of course not what he is. but you do sense, and michael bloomberg, of course, has now said he might well enter the fray. as a
democratic candidate, yes. as a democratic candidate, yes. as a democratic candidate. and you do wonder, is somebody going to come from almost nowhere? because the primary is start injanuary. i think that's right, with caucuses and all of the rest of it. it is a fantastic system. i don't think people in our country here fully appreciate. we are saying oh my goodness, four weeks, five weeks of the general election campaign. in america it is 11 months of this stuff. that is quite extraordinary. and the cost— goodness! it is a little bit easier to travel all the way up and down the uk, though. talking of travelling, on the front page of the times, gas guzzlers eliminating benefits of electric cars. apparently this is due to increasing demand for... well, bigger cars that consume more petrol. now, did you
see boris, in the part of the day he probably enjoyed best, he was driving around in an electric black cab. yes, because he made his speech in warwickshire in a factory. he pledged to invest an extra £500 million in those charging points for electric cars, and what about this for a kick in the teeth? this story 0h for a kick in the teeth? this story on the front page of the times that because of this increasing demand for suvs, i was never quite sure what that meant, but i now know it means sports utility vehicles, is eliminating the emissions savings made by those who switch to electric cars, which is an extraordinary situation. and if the sales train continues, suvs continue to be popular, they will be responsible foran popular, they will be responsible for an additional 2 million barrels of oil a day by 2040, offsetting the
savings from nearly 150 million electric cars. so... well, look, we have not got much time. do you mind if we whizz onto the daily mirror? the mirror has gone green. it is a green daily mirror, and a lovely picture of a little baby. but the chilling words baby lace and is just hours old, but climate crisis threatens his future —— leyton. the daily mirror has published a special green edition, hasn't it?|j daily mirror has published a special green edition, hasn't it? ithink you need to take a look at what those of us who admire fleet street respect. saying come on, give the baby a chance. it is echoing the independent and a set of other papers citing lead set studies saying we are seeing material damage to children's lungs —— lancet. they could be malnutrition if our diets
have to change, a sharp response to climate change. our ability to absorb the nutrients we need from food can be affected by pollution. we are seeing flooding across... there is a shocking image on the telegraph's front page of floods in lincoln. it is about this magnitude, the gravitas, the greta effect we are seeing around climate change and it is interesting to see fleet street getting on board with it and trying to communicate it to the older generation. my initial reaction to this was, if younger people really are more tuned in to the worries about climate change, and grown—ups, no wonder when you read some of these stories that are around today, the other rather more frivolous point i would make is i wonder what baby leyton, when this picture is at the 21st birthday party he will be having in whatever the year will be, 2041, will it be? i wonder what baby leyton, when they show this front page, there you
were! to be on the front page of the paper aged goodness knows what, less than one, that is for sure. shall we keep it for him? i think so. lovely stuff. that's it for the papers tonight. don't forget you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc news website. it's all there for you seven days a week at bbc.co.uk/papers. and if you miss the programme any evening, you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you, david davies and anna isaac. goodbye. good evening. i'm katie shanahan, with the latest from the bbc sport centre. we start with tennis, and yet another incredible comeback from rafa nadal.
he was just one point away from being knocked out of the atp finals in london, as well as losing his world number one ranking. but, as adam wild reports, he is still in the mix at the o2 arena. from spain, rafael nadal! here was the world number one once more under the world number one once more under the spotlight. rafa nadal‘s meek opening defeat led many to question his performance. now it was daniil medvedev‘s turned to us just what the spaniard had left. well, this was his first answer, nadal seeming at once more determined, showing more fight. but medvedev is part of the new generation, looking to unseat the old guard. here he was with plenty of his own replies, taking the first set on a tie—break. nadal had come to london recovering from an abdominal injury. did he really have the stomach for this? the second is that showed he had all that was required, medvedev misplacing a forehand and the match was level once more. into a third
set. the contest now impossible to judge. medvedev the first to make his move, 5—1 up, match point. but here again, rafael nadal‘s return, to force another tie—break. extraordinary drama and the narrowest of margins, none more so than the very final point. a second look said this without, and nadal for the moment stays in. any lingering questions answered by the world number one. in the evening game, stefanos tsitsipas qualified for the semi—finals after beating the defending champion, alexander zverev. tsitsipas is the youngest player in the tournament, but that didn't show, as he took the first set and then went on the take the second with relative ease. it is the greek 21—year—old's first appearance at the tournament. manchester city's bernardo silva has been banned for one match, given a £50,000 fine and ordered to complete an education course. it is after the fa charged him over a tweet that the anti—discrimination group kick it out said enforced
a racist stereotype. silva compared team—mate benjamin mendy to the character on a packet of chocolate that is sold in spain and portugal. the fa did accept, though, that silva didn't intend for the tweet to be racist. arsene wenger is back in football. he has taken a seniorjob at fifa. the 70—year—old is their new chief of global football development. there had been rumours from germany that he would take over at bayern munich until the end of the season. wenger hasn't worked in football since leaving arsenal 18 months ago, after 22 years in charge. gareth southgate has defended his decision to drop raheem sterling for tomorrow night's euro 2020 qualifier against montenegro. southgate has been accused of over—reacting by leaving sterling out after that bust—up with joe gomez at england's training base. he says he understands why people don't agree with his decision,
and says he wouldn't imagine that sterling is a big fan of him at the moment. the australia captain sam kerr, who is widely regarded as one of the best strikers in the world, has signed for women's super league leaders chelsea. kerr is the all—time goal—scorer in both the american and australian leagues. lots of european clubs were chasing her, but she has chosen to come to london, signing a 2.5—year deal with chelsea, who she willjoin injanuary. and there has been another gold medal and another world record for britain's sophie hahn at the world para athletics championships in dubai. all the details on the bbc sport website and app. that's all from me. goodbye. hello once again. wednesday was a much improved today for many parts of the british isles, although the cloud filled in across the south—western quarter of the british
isles is this system eventually spread. quite a bit of rainfall and across the high ground of south wales and the moors of the southwest, a significant amount of snow as well. here we are for thursday morning, and a really wet start to the day. south wales, the midlands, east anglia, some of the southern counties of england as well. come the afternoon, the eastern portion of that weather front will have taken its rain, moderate burst for the most part, the heavier burst in there. very much closer to those flood affected areas, and that is the concern, and thatis areas, and that is the concern, and that is why there are a number of weather warnings around. further north and west it is a drier, finer day, one or two showers for the north of scotland. whether you have the sunshine whether you don't, it is on the cool side to say the very least. in the rain keeps coming. just living a little bit further towards the north, so if you don't see the rain during the course of the day you may get it overnight. it is going to be another chilly night, and those rainfall totals really mounting up. not great news for those that have already seen far too much in the way of rain of late. friday looks to be a somewhat quiet today with regards to the rain. i
think there will be enough cloud that those moist flows coming in of the north sea, for there to be medicine —— bits and pieces of rain at times, but nothing particularly organised about it. i think scotland and northern ireland again very best for a wee bit of sunshine, one or two showers again across the north and north—east of scotland. and maybe we will just and north—east of scotland. and maybe we willjust find a degree or two on the temperatures, but certainly nothing to write have about by any means at all. the weekend, similar sort of fair. on the cool side, a lot of cloud around, and there will be some rain at times, but nowhere near this sort of intensity that we may well have seen during the course of thursday in some areas. the set up much the same stop northern and north—western flank, a big area of low pressure over the continent, feeding and moist airfrom the over the continent, feeding and moist air from the north sea, over the continent, feeding and moist airfrom the north sea, so over the continent, feeding and moist air from the north sea, so a lot of cloud across the greater part of the british isles, with the odd bit and piece of rain in the mix there. a new weatherfront bit and piece of rain in the mix there. a new weather front coming bit and piece of rain in the mix there. a new weatherfront coming in across the western isles of scotland, those temperatures again for some struggling, five, six, seven degrees, ten at the very best. on sunday, well, spot the
i'm sharanjit leyl in singapore. the headlines: public impeachment hearings into donald trump's presidency get underway in washington. mr trump — who's hosting turkey's leader — says he's too busy to watch. i hear it is a joke. i have not watched, i have not watched for one minute because i have been with the president which is much more important as far as i am concerned. earlier president erdogan received a warm welcome to the white house — despite tensions over the war in syria. i'm maryam moshiri in london. also in the programme:
