will afternoon. and a sharp frost will develop as we going to thursday night underneath increasingly clear skies. —3 in edinburgh, colder than that in the countryside. friday could have an odd patch of cloud bringing some rain, but the vast majority of the uk it is a dry day with long spells of sunshine. that said, there will still be a few showers across northern scotland and a few of these will sneak down to effect some of these dingoes of england as well. it's going to feel cold. temperatures li— eight celsius. now, heading into the weekend, for most of us high pressure will continue to bring fine and sunny conditions, cold, mind you. in the south we have this troublesome area of low pressure. there is some uncertainty about how far north the band of rain is going to get. the rain could cross into northern
11:31 pm
france and keep us dry, but it could go as far north as wales, the midlands and east anglia. at the moment the best guess is between these two solutions where we see the rain mainly affecting southern counties of england. away from that band of rain it is a dry day with just a scattering of showers across the northern north—eastern areas. by sunday the low pressure has moved well away from the uk, in towards the mediterranean. and high pressure really is beginning to dominate. it is not completely dry everywhere, there will still be themselves around because northern scotland, wintry at times, maybe for the northern isles, certainly over the high ground in scotland. there could be some fog patches to start the day elsewhere but for the majority a lot less rain than we have seen over recent days and weeks. mostly dry with sunshine but feeling cold, temperatures 4— seven celsius was up this autumn the jet stream pattern has often look like this, with a big ridge to the west of the uk. we found ourselves underneath a trough which is encouraging slow moving areas are present to develop and day after day after day of torrential
11:32 pm
rain. it has been the wettest autumn on record. but thejet rain. it has been the wettest autumn on record. but the jet stream pattern is changing significantly. the wavelengths are changing, we have a really big area of high pressure in the upper atmosphere, this big ridge to the west of the uk, that builds a big area pressure on the earth's surface, and that is going to be moving over the uk early next week which will encourage a lot of dry weather and sunshine as well. later in the week that slips away southwards and we could see some further changes. so next week it is drier, there will be showers at times but spells of sunshine. it stays cold. later in the week we could see winds that strengthen, rain moving into north—western areas, but that is more typical where we would expect to see rain as we head into winter and is less likely to cause significant impact. that's your weather. hello. this is bbc news, with geeta guru—murthy. we will be taking a look at tomorrow morning's papers in a moment. first the headlines: labour says it has proof that the nhs is at risk in an american trade deal after britain leaves the eu. the snp launches its election
11:33 pm
manifesto, saying it is time to put scotland's future in scotland's hands, and calls for a second independence referendum next year. tata steel says it expects to cut 1,000 jobs across the uk as part of the compa ny‘s restructuring plans. a warning from councils that social care services won't be able to meet demand through the winter from those who need it most. vue cinemas will restart showing the london gang film blue story after banning the screenings due to a mass brawl in birmingham. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are torcuil crichton, westminster editor at the daily record, and sam lister, deputy political editor of the daily express. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. the guardian reports on the release of uncensored documents
11:34 pm
which according tojeremy corbyn prove that the nhs is on the table in trade talks with the us, despite denials from the conservatives. the paper also features an image of the australian broadcaster clive james, who has died at the age of 80. the times writes that borisjohnson is on course for a comfortable majority in the general election, suggested by the latest poll for the paper by yougov. the poll was based on 100,000 interviews carried out over seven days. by contrast, the telegraph leads on a warning from dominic cummings, boris johnson's most senior adviser, who says the election is too close to call, and that the conservatives and labour are much closer than polls indicate. the paper has a picture ofjeremy corbyn, who has decided not to take part in two televison debates. and the metro pays tribute to tv chef gary rhodes, who has died aged 59. well, let us begin with the
11:35 pm
guardian, and just looking at this nhs headline, which we of course have been running all day, but we do know it is a key concern, do you think labour did manage to prove definitively what they are saying? think labour did manage to prove definitively what they are saying ?|j don't think so at all. i think it was a really good attempt to distract from the problems they have been having with anti—semitism. obviously yesterday was a really terrible day forjeremy corbyn, with the chief rabbi's intervention, and also his terrible interview by andrew neil. so this was their attempt to move the agenda on. but actually, if you look through the document, there's a handful of of trade talks, the nhs and health issues in trade talks. a lot of it centres on the pharmaceutical industry and drugs patents. but actually, it is the us setting out what areas of interest they have. it is not the uk saying they would do
11:36 pm
anything? and the question of trust, and everyone feeling that there has to be more investment and focus on the nhs, everybody uses it, we know that the public services are always of key interest to people, but how much do you think people are following the details of these arguments? well, no-one is going to be reading the a50 pages he released today unredacted. he starts off with a clever proposition that boris johnson's brexit, johnson's brexit, would mean the nhs would be sold to donald trump. and that worked. it moves the argument back onto safe territory, comfortable territory for jeremy corbyn. of course people trust... jeremy corbyn. of course people trust. . . vote jeremy corbyn. of course people trust... vote winning territory? well, people trust labour on the nhs, we know they do. do people trustjeremy corbyn to be prime
11:37 pm
minister? that's an entirely different question. the right message, the ronchi planting it. let's move onto the times, of course, they are focusing on this new poll. johnson heading for big majority. this is a pole lots of people in westminster have been keenly awaiting, but we to caveat all the poles. we do. we have been deeply scarred by polls over the last few elections and referenda. so obviously with that in mind, this predicts a 68 seat majority for borisjohnson. that's quite staggering, you know, point at this election so far. what we do know, if that was to be true, brexit would be done by 31 january. so it is quite... they go through seat by seat, and of course, there's lots of people poring over this now and wondering over what the margins are
11:38 pm
and the margin of error in each seat. well, there's only one pole that matters. we know that this is really exciting, it is kind of kool—aid for us journalists, politicians, it means brexit means business. in the last time this kind of pole was done a week out from the 2017 election, it got within one seat and predicted a hung parliament. none of us thought that was going to happen. we have heard that this would be a seat by seat election, local factors, that this would be a seat by seat election, localfactors, local population, local issues. and whether any pole can accurately predict that... the other thing is that if a tory lead is 7%, we will have a hung parliament. two weeks to 90, have a hung parliament. two weeks to go, things will get tighter. we have seen the lib dems squeezed down to
11:39 pm
13 seats, if this is right. things will get tighter between the big two in the next two weeks. the tories will say it is in the bag. labour will say it is in the bag. labour will say it is in the bag. labour will say it is all to play for. and we will come to the tv debates, discussion about the tv debates, but how many of the big moments actually swing people? that is always something people are not sure about. it is. i think we were discussing this earlier, again this is becoming a bit ofa tv this earlier, again this is becoming a bit of a tv election, the big staging points in this election campaign othertv staging points in this election campaign other tv debates, the big interviews. you don't really seem to get much action out in the country, do you? it is staged for television, and we feel as print slightly squeezed. one third of people say it helps them make their mind up, that the parties spend a lot of money and time and effort and getting people to play different roles, answer the
11:40 pm
questions, we thinkjeremy corbyn did poorly in the andrew neil interview. but they put a lot of effort into that. ijust interview. but they put a lot of effort into that. i just wanted to mention, on the question of polling, if you want more information on the latest opinion poll trends, you can look at the pole tracker on the bbc website. —— poll. overall, the polls from the last week have shown the same pattern of movement as they have throughout the campaign. in particular, the conservatives have gone up again in the bbc poll tracker and the brexit party continues to fall. in the telegraph, election too close to call, warns dominic cummings. all parties are worried about complacency, they all want to get the vote out. exactly. when you see
11:41 pm
a pole with an enormous majority, it can make your base complacent. so they have been anticipating this. it will not be what they want, such a positive pole. they want people to feel we must go out, every vote counts. so dominic cummings has written this epic blog. he is not known for brevity on his blogs, they are quite lengthy things. but the gist of it is things are much tighter than predicted. and if you area tighter than predicted. and if you are a brexiteer, you have to come out and vote. and dominic cummings no that the tories are on the way home, but he doesn't want people to kind of stay at home. it also means that if people are still making their mind up, nobody wants polling that may be wrong to sway people's
11:42 pm
actions. the cummings pole brings a complete script to go to friends and neighbours about how they must avoid ajeremy neighbours about how they must avoid a jeremy corbyn, nicola sturgeon, chaos, as they call it. it is interesting, if you look back at the 2017 vote, obviously theresa may was quite... she was 20 points ahead at the beginning of it, and obviously that crumbled. but actually, the vote share split between labour and the conservatives, they had more between them, more than 80% share of the votes, and the votes to the smaller parties collapsed. well, i think we probably likely to see that because as people get to the big day, you are either on one side or the other, and there is only really two men who are potentially going to be in number ten. except for viewers from scotland. well, nicola sturgeon can't be in number ten. but also seats where it is not labour, tory
11:43 pm
decision. so you have to work out who will be your man in number ten. and the telegraph have a slightly interesting photograph ofjeremy corbyn at his nhs launch today. it says jeremy corbyn corbyn at his nhs launch today. it sasteremy corbyn dodges a tv debates, but of course borisjohnson has not announced he will do that debate either. boris johnson has so far not announced he will go on the rack by andrew neil. nicola sturgeon, and jeremy corbyn were on the rack with andrew neil. and boris johnson has yet to confirm. and he is actually going to do a channel a debate on climate change, and boris johnson is not doing that. boris
11:44 pm
johnson is not doing that. boris johnson has told us he will not share a platform with someone who is not going to be prime minister. nicola sturgeon is coming down for that channel a debate tomorrow, so consequently boris johnson won't do it, michael gove is doing it.|j don't know whether channel a have accepted that. the real story is of course thatjohnson is accepted that. the real story is of course that johnson is ducking the big grilling. do you think that ultimately he will feel he should face that sort of interview? the leader of the opposition has. face that sort of interview? the leader of the opposition hasm face that sort of interview? the leader of the opposition has. if i was in his team of advisers, i would probably be telling him not to do it, because what is the advantage of doing it if you are going to get shredded in the final week of the campaign? might not get shredded. it is perhaps the last impression vote rs is perhaps the last impression voters would get of boris johnson, is being beaten up by andrew neil. and played over and over again on social media. he won't mind being called scared. i am just running the
11:45 pm
argument. it is one day's bad headlines for a whole week of bad clips on social media. let us move on now to be on british politics and the guardian. what's been going on in multi has been very murky. we got to be careful with this —— in malta. there is a lot of political upheaval going on there. the guardian put up a story, a european union story about the death of the campaigning journalist daphne galibier who was blown up, she was killed and murdered in a european country for her work investigating corruption in malta. they report the chief of staff of the maltese prime minister has been arrested as a co—conspirator to murder. so this is the equivalent of tony blair's
11:46 pm
alastair campbell, or dominic cummings, the right—hand man of the prime minister now has the finger pointed at him, along with another quy pointed at him, along with another guy who was arrested earlier this week. neither cummings nor campbell have been arrested, for those just turning in. but in a european union country, she was killed two years ago, now we have finger—pointing going right to the heart of the government. we have this absolutely appalling day of news of 3—man, in british public life with huge followings, huge talents, all of them who all have passed away this week. the times has a photo of clive james and jonathan miller, i confess, two zeros in my household and my husband and children sort of idolise them, really. it'sjust extraordinary. huge losses. when the news broke of clive james' death
11:47 pm
this afternoon some people in the office, younger people, asked who he was which is incredibly heartbreaking for those of us who remember the amazing tv they made. the ride, dried humour, these japanese torture programmes. he is a brilliant intellectual, a poet. translated italian dante. the sydney opera house is a national symbol, and anyway he was. we were lucky to have them. sirjonathan miller, a doctor's daughter, he was always held up to me. he had the skills as a medic and opera and theatre and the whole light. he was known as a
11:48 pm
renaissance man. it's just the whole light. he was known as a renaissance man. it'sjust amazing tale nt renaissance man. it'sjust amazing talent to have talent in one area is quite a lucky thing, but having it in so many is remarkable. a polymath. exactly. ithink in so many is remarkable. a polymath. exactly. i think you a lwa ys polymath. exactly. i think you always felt he had lost his opportunity and slightly regretted it but succeeded in so many other fields. and gary rhodes has died very young. shockingly young at 59, you know. although a chef's life is a hard life, we know that. it takes its toll. he was one of the first rockstar chefs in britain, really. this we had the cleaner version of anthony bourdain. he shone through
11:49 pm
and it's very sad. and talking about who is going to be remembered and who is going to be remembered and who is going to be remembered and who is known, we had the same thing when i came into the newsroom today, people didn't know who clive james was. what do you think that says about where we are right now? and do we see figures like clive james and sirjonathan miller, do you think we see those people still in the public life now? i think so. someone said about clive james "he came as close as anyone since doctor samuel johnson." here will be read in time immemorial, he such a funny, erudite fellow. being able to switch from highbrow to lowbrow, he loved the
11:50 pm
kind of trashy tally as much as the next man. —— trashy television. he had that wonderful intellect but also the common touch and lovely, lilting voice. quite a lovely thing. when i was watching those television programmes i didn't realise how brilliant a mind he had. and watching them now with the kids, watching them now with the kids, watching clive jones' watching them now with the kids, watching clivejones' travelogues, oh, my word he is a master writer. the impact these people have on your lives, you feel tremendous sadness when you lose them. an incredible day. thank you both, lovely to see you. that is it for the papers denied. 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, and if you miss the programme any evening, you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you, torcuil crichton and sam lister.
11:51 pm
we will see you soon. good night. good evening. i'm ben croucher with a round—up from the bbc sport centre. in tonight's champions league matches, liverpool and chelsea both missed the chance to make the last 16, for now, at least. chelsea were denied by a slightly lucky strike in valencia, while liverpool weren't at their best at home to napoli — both held to draws. our correspondent joe wilson has more. two shots at anfield. firstly, natalie's was onside, and then that he scored. but those were the facts. juergen klopp erupted so often the liveable manager was booked for half—time. 65 minutes intention still rising when lovering lapped, and field grieved — really. 1—1,
11:52 pm
liverpool need more. similar story for chelsea. in valencia, they are still wondering how max gomez missed, not just the still wondering how max gomez missed, notjust the chance but the actual ball completely. yes, that. but opportunities were ceaseless. in the spanish side taking the lead, to chelsea equalising 108 the spanish side taking the lead, to chelsea equalising108 seconds later. matteo, jets, well done. christian literature finish this. va are looked at it and liked it. valencia didn't. and the game seemed one for chelsea but hang on, what was that? daniel vast. the two — two draw is ok for chelsea because valencia should have one. it started with a miss and ended like this. joe wilson, bbc news. manchester united are in europa league action tomorrow night. a squad full of youngsters, ten potential debutants,
11:53 pm
it'll probably mean just a little more to defender max taylor. he's 19 and this time last year had just found out he had testicular cancer. well he's since made a full recovery, returned to playing a month ago and is now in line for a first senior appearance. he's been telling the bbc about his experience. i think ithinka i think a massive thing that i won't be able to sort of take from me going through the cancer, though, is that it's not going to... the fact that it's not going to... the fact that ab cancer, i don't want that to be what people remember me for. that's a part of me but it won't define me. what do you want people to remember you for? hopefully being a great person, a great footballer and somebody who gives back. england captainjoe root has the backing of the whole squad according to all—rounder ben stokes. it comes after the batsman was criticised having madejust 13 runs in the first test defeat to new zealand with his captaincy also coming under fire. root himself insists leading the side doesn't affect his batting
11:54 pm
even if the number suggests otherwise and his vice captain has tipped him to return to top form. is that the backing of everyone in the changing room. that's an important thing to him as a captain and to us as plays in general. you know, the only thing that matters is the changing room vibe, really, anything outside of that is noise. and here's england plasma captain, his england's best player. and he knows that any nosy as the full support of everyone in the change room “— support of everyone in the change room —— and here's england's captain. dillian whyte will face mariusz wach on the undercard of anthonyjoshua's world title rematch with andy ruinr next month in saudi arabia. the british heavyweight has not fought since it emerged he failed a uk anti—doping test in the build—up to his win over oscar rivas in july. whyte was cleared to fight rivas on the day of their bout and has not faced any sanction since. that's all the sport for now. you can find more on all those stories on the bbc sport website. that's from me and the team, have a very good night. hello. yesterday
11:55 pm
relentless rain across scotland and the north—east of england. today we are anticipating it becomes dry here is the rain moved southwards. we will see much colder air following on behind it. this is below that has been generating all the wet this trailing front also coming in for us. today behind the front northerly wind picks up the arctic air, feeding in and it will trickle its way south. first thing today, still some rain across the north—east of england, that will clear up through the morning, then ourfront brings wet conditions do northern ireland, wales and southern counties of england as we head onto the afternoon and early evening. but, still seeing temperatures in double figures here. to the north, clear skies, much more sunshine but that northerly wind and highs of five and six, dealing very, very different even by this afternoon. on through the evening and overnight, some heavier rain for awhile out of that
11:56 pm
front out of southern england, perhaps in wintry showers coming on the northerly wind to some parts of scotland, some ice year. first thing on friday, widespread frost and in the south temperatures up, but a chance of a few more wintry showers here on friday. the northerly wind perhaps a little lighter, as the chance of some showers coming in of the north sea coast and the north york moors. a chilly dayjust about everywhere, four degrees in aberdeen. friday, on into saturday, we still have the area of high pressure with us, that would mean a lot of jye and chilly weather —— dry and chilly weather. it winds its way saturday into the south—west of england, meaning milder conditions and a prolonged bell england, meaning milder conditions and a prolonged belt of rain, strong winds as well. a bit of uncertainty as to how far north that rain reaches and how far east. 11 in a wet plymouth, chilly but drier
11:57 pm
elsewhere in the north. saturday into sunday, the low moves of the continent and the high studs to build in again. it really orientates towards next week and we could see more cloud and patchy rain at times but warmer airfitting in. chilly for all of us starting next week.
