11:30 pm
the same time. freezing fog is quite treacherous for travellers and it looks like we will have dense fog around for saturday and sunday morning. so quite nasty conditions if you are out. at this time of year it doesn't clear very quickly. in some areas, perhaps central and eastern england, it could lingerfor much of the day, so it will feel icy cold here. to the north, still a few showers but fewer than we have seen during the day on friday. and eastern areas and to the south, some rain. it will feel very raw here even though temperatures are eight oi’ even though temperatures are eight or nine degrees, because there is a strong easterly wind blowing as well. that rain, through the evening and overnight, will tend to push its way across eastern parts of england as well, just limiting the frost risk and southern areas, but once againa risk and southern areas, but once again a widespread frost, saturday night into sunday. quite a hard frost in a few places as well, and yes, more fog. fog and ice, of course, because lots of damp services around following the recent rain and fog, and % of high pressure. perhaps also up into parts of scotland, northern ireland and northern england on sunday. not ruling out saturday, either. with a regime of light winds, it will not
11:31 pm
move away very quickly. elsewhere, good spells of sunshine and perhaps those showers again pestering the north of scotland and coming into parts of eastern england as well at times. still a keen windows well across the south, so it will feel colder than the seven or eight suggests, with quite a raw feel. sunday night into monday morning, i cold night on the cards again, with temperatures well below freezing and further south. notice it is not as intense, the frost, as further north. that is because we are just starting to tip that high—pressure little bit further south, and allow the atlantic influence, the atlantic westerly wind the atlantic influence, the atlantic westerly wi nd into the atlantic influence, the atlantic westerly wind into the north. still cold on monday morning and they could be a few wintry showers in eastern england, but later temperatures will lift a little bit for the western and northern isles and the north—west of scotland, would that atlantic influence. once again, most of the uk, the morning frost and morning fog issues, then some sunshine, high—pressure still with us on tuesday. that is into four or five days of largely dry weather for many of us, but again, that atlantic influence in the north
11:32 pm
and west will make for cloudy skies across the north—west highlands of scotla nd across the north—west highlands of scotland and the islands as well, and again you can see the risk of fog. low cloud is with us further south as well. so frost and morning fog will be the main concerns, i think, over the next 4— five days. then ourjet think, over the next 4— five days. then our jet stream think, over the next 4— five days. then ourjet stream looks set to strengthen once again, this time to the north of the uk. so that will push low pressure systems and rain into the northern half of the uk, the climactic average, if you like, where they should go at this time of year. that is where most of the rain looks like falling into the second half of next week. they will at times be someone pushing further south at this stage it doesn't look like it will be significant. the most significant rain will be in northern and western parts of the uk. some strong winds will go with it. it is almost business as usual, but for many areas, another three or four days of largely dry weather. there are warnings on the website.
11:33 pm
11:34 pm
hello. this is bbc news with lukwesa burak. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow mornings papers in a moment — first the headlines. two people have died after being stabbed in what police describe, as a terrorist incident, on london bridge. eye witnesses capture the moment members of the public rushed in to help, pinning the suspect, to the ground. eventually, after a struggle, armed police intervene, firing two shots, killing the attacker. the bbc understands he's a former prisoner, convicted of a terrorism offence who had been released on licence. all the traffic stopped. the police were armed. they were shouting at the person on the ground and telling us to get off the bridge and that is when i heard what sounded like two shots fired. the suspect was wearing an explosives vest, which turned out to be fake. there's been wide spread praise, for those, who helped tackle him.
11:35 pm
the prime minister has been chairing a meeting of the government's emergency cobra committee. heated exchanges in the bbcs election debate in cardiff, as conservative and labour brexit plans are described as a lie, and a cop out. three people have been wounded after a stabbing on a shopping street in the hague. up to 4,500 jobs could go at the energy provider, npower. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are the daily mirror's head of politics jason beattie and economic adviser at arbuthnot banking, ruth lea. many of tomorrow's front
11:36 pm
pages are already in, and a warning that many of them contain graphic images of today's events on london bridge. the mail highlights the bravery of those who tried to stop the attacker — one grabs the attacker‘s knife — others chased him with fire extinguishers. the daily mirror describes the people who stepped in as ‘the heroes of london bridge'. similarly, the daily express describes them as ‘the heroes who stood up to terror‘. according to the i, several people challenged the attacker as the chaos unfolded in front of lunchtime shoppers. the daily telegraph describes how the incident began when the attacker began randomly stabbing people inside fishmongers' hall, a conference and banqueting venue at the north end of london bridge. a warning that the times carries a graphic image on its front page — it reports the attacker was a convicted terrorist, who was released from jail after agreeing to his movements being monitored.
11:37 pm
the guardian finds room for one other story on its front page — it says millions of patients will be stopped from having hernia repair surgery, an x—ray on their bad back or a knee scan to detect arthritis under controversial plans by the nhs and doctors' groups to ration "unnecessary" treatment. and the financial times also finds room for one other story — it reports david pemsel has resigned from his job as chief executive of the premier league before he could take up the role — after revelations in a tabloid newspaper about his private life. jason, start us off with your paper, the mirror. notjust the mirror but
11:38 pm
most of the tabloids, have gone on a very similar line and i'm quite heartened by it because they have all gone on the incredible bravery and heroism of notjust the security services but also the public. and this is good for two reasons. one, because the focus is not on the person who carried out this atrocity which is what they wanted so it is good, actually. we're looking at the positive aspects, if you can a positive aspects, if you can a positive accident —— aspect of such a tragedy. it is an important message to send out to people, that people can be incredibly courageous, and that the best way to stand up to terrorism is elective endeavour, reformation of values. this courage. you put yourself in their shoes and you think, would die in that
11:39 pm
situation, this completely new experience, coming at you from out of the blue, would i be able to act in the same way? and i doubt if i could, so it really is quite remarkable and they divert schmidt deserve our —— and they deserve our commendation. love is being shattered, there will be a lot of grieving out there and it will bring back bad memories of people who have lost loved ones or been themselves victims of previous terror attacks. to find some cause for hope. he turned out to be wearing a hoax suicide vest that the people who are publicly intervening wouldn't have known necessarily if they thought he had a suicide vest on, that it was indeed a hoax suicide vest. this man could have been another terrorist in the case of the manchester bombing way back over two years ago where it was a suicide vest as well. it was a home—made bomb within a backpack, in
11:40 pm
that his —— in that instance. home—made bomb within a backpack, in that his -- in that instance. my point is still, you don't know what this man was carrying. he was talking about blowing up fishmongers' hall, wasn't he? i think if i had been somebody in the public i would think, well, what sort of weaponry does he have on him to blow it this place up? whether it isa to blow it this place up? whether it is a suicide vest or abominable accpac. they went ahead nevertheless and did it. —— abe bomb in a backpack. we have almost forgotten how appalling these terrorist incidents are. in 2017 we had several of them, one after the other, it seemed like they were never going to win. the first one was westminster bridge is then there was the manchester arena and then there was the london bombing again. the london bridge incident and then one at finsbury park and one at parsons green, i think. i'm one at finsbury park and one at parsons green, ithink. i'm not saying everybody has got complacent but i think it has a slightly moved
11:41 pm
off the political radar. it is way back on the political radar now. jason, talking about the heroism of members of the public, it is interesting because we are now getting details of what took place in fishmongers' hall and the idea that people were grabbing weapons. and extraordinary story that somebody grabbed the task of narwhal. the fishmongers' hall have displays of fish. you can see it in the photos, they used this as a way to try and disarm this attacker. it shows it is kind of a bit like the quy: shows it is kind of a bit like the guy, when we had the last attack on london bridge who was seen as holding his pint as he ran and it shows a bit of british spirit which again, in this darkness, is a moment
11:42 pm
of light. i think again as a dim —— it is important because of the this task was probably a priceless a rtefa ct. task was probably a priceless artefact. two -- this tusk. can see something that looks like a white streak, light sabre. that is the task of a narwhal. you find it in the arctic waters and it is closely related to the beluga whale. very informative! to the person who grabbed the tusk, i marvel at the ingenuity and courage. let us turn to the guardian. this is the tragedy that people ‘s lives were lost in these acts. as we understand,
11:43 pm
waiting for details of heroism. it does make you wonder about the government's campaign to run high tail. league it does. i think the problem is, as we know, the person who perpetrated this crime, he was a convicted criminal. —— it does.|j who perpetrated this crime, he was a convicted criminal. -- it does. i am afraid i jumped forward convicted criminal. -- it does. i am afraid ijumped forward to the times. let us go to the times. i don't know if we will share the image but this is the paper that does have a paper that some viewers mightfind does have a paper that some viewers might find upsetting. carry on. does have a paper that some viewers might find upsetting. carry onlj was going to say, the times is very informative on this because it said that attacker had been —— convicted of islamist terrorist attack because of islamist terrorist attack because of he was released from prison about a year ago after agreeing to wear an electronic tag used to restrict the offenders' movements. they will be big questions as to whether he should be let out but it is always
11:44 pm
easy to be clever with hindsight, if you know what i mean. but i think there will be fairly big questions asked about the wisdom of letting this chap out. if i am right, asked about the wisdom of letting this chap out. ifi am right, boris johnson in the last half hour or so has said we would have a look at the release and you could see this could escalate quite quickly into quite a big political issue. there are questions, as we have said, about rehabilitation that he went through, where they are part of a d radicalisation programme or not, why wasn't it successful? who made this decision? —— deradicalisation. these will be difficult questions. you can just see in the middle of an election campaign how this could become political very quickly. and he had actually been a guest at a cambridge university talk on rehabilitation so he was presumably there to discuss a prisoner rehabilitation and then he started
11:45 pm
to attack people and threatening to blow up fishmongers' hall. obviously university of cambridge are very concerned and have released a statement tonight expressing their concern for their staff, their stu d e nts concern for their staff, their students and who was caught up in that incident. they are "urgently seeking clarification and further details and all thoughts are with those who were affected either these terrible events". as you say, the event was former prisoners, prison officers and perhaps even members of the public, we don't know. but it does, like you say, questions will be raised. you would be having this co nfe re nce be raised. you would be having this conference and suddenly horror would break up. —— breakout was of it must have been a horrendous moment. too difficult to describe. there will be questions for the security services.
11:46 pm
the services and the police have done an amazing job since 2017, by porting 22 terrorist attacks. they also realise that they have to be held to scrutiny. there were errors in the last terror attack on london bridge. all of these things have to be investigated and explored was not just on the point on the statement, the line, which we can now make sense of, from borisjohnson, looking at the early release of prisoners. the times says the minister ofjustice became prisoners. the times says the minister of justice became aware prisoners. the times says the minister ofjustice became aware of his identity shortly after the attack and ordered a review. many people assume that because they are low at does —— loan actors, they are below the radar. i am sure he has connections. they had connections within the jihadist community. i think the other interesting thing is, it was quite recently, the terror act had —— terror watch had been downgraded. i am not suggesting
11:47 pm
people had been complacent about this at all but it does strike me that abs ever so slightly, this issue had slightly gone off the radar. sadly, it is back right on the radar. let's turn to the general election. page ii of the daily mail. "stay out of our election", the prime minister wa nts of our election", the prime minister wants trump. nato is taking place next week. a big nato summit. you've got a little smile. i love this so much, the idea that borisjohnson can tell donald trump what to do. a slight degree of hubris there. you can see why borisjohnson would love the american president to be as silent as possible. i think it is wishful thinking. the one thing we do know about donald trump is, he really does like to voice his
11:48 pm
opinions, and he is incredibly unpredictable. the great fear of course, is that trumps approval ratings in the uk are pretty disastrous. he is not a popular figure, and he is going to come over here and say something incredibly unhelpful about brexit, possibly talking about the trade deal involving american companies having access to the nhs, and you canjust see borisjohnson access to the nhs, and you canjust see boris johnson going access to the nhs, and you canjust see borisjohnson going "no, no, don't say it!" the daily mail has a nice interpretation of this, the prime minister standing tall to be american president, but i think he may be incapable... he is a controversial figure. i think that is putting it mildly. and i suspect that boris will try to keep him sort of more involved with nato, because it isa of more involved with nato, because it is a nato summit, that is why he is coming. it'sjust so happens to be in london. so with any luck,
11:49 pm
trump will be involved in that. and i think he is going to visit the queen as well. you remember the last time he came over to this country, air force one had barely touched down at stansted and he was tweeting insults at sadiq khan. and sadiq khan was going, thank you. insults at sadiq khan. and sadiq khan was going, thank youlj insults at sadiq khan. and sadiq khan was going, thank you. i think generally, it is not a good idea for overseas politicians to get involved in british politics, because i have said this earlier, but i do think obama's comments ahead of the referendum were not helpful to the remain campaign. it is not appreciated, keep out. donald trump's comments could be very helpful to the remain campaign so we wa nted helpful to the remain campaign so we wanted to speak as much as possible. that's what i'm concerned about! let's turn to another page in the mail. page eight. cartax let's turn to another page in the mail. page eight. car tax disc fiasco has cost £281 million, instead of saving money by going online. i tend to agree with this, as somebody who liked to have the car tax disc on my car. but i do
11:50 pm
sort of remember to pay it. it is true, when you have to actually buy a piece of paper and it obviously had a date on it, itjust reminded you of when you had to renew it, and thatis you of when you had to renew it, and that is gone. i will confess i have still got my 2014 disc on my car. i haven't bothered to peel it off the windscreen. so have i! this is obviously one of george osborne's wheezes, he introduced this idea of going paperless in this new high—tech world and we were all going to have automatic number plate recognition to catch people who didn't pay the roads disc tax. and obviously it has not worked. it is a bit like going back to vinyl records, people suddenly recognising that the old—fashioned ways we may bea that the old—fashioned ways we may be a bit better. let's all print paper. as somebody who works in print i think paper is really good. all right... what about like in the 19505, all right... what about like in the 1950s, we would just use bms. all right... what about like in the 1950s, we wouldjust use bms. did they work? well, the police would never notice. —— used beer mats.
11:51 pm
they work? well, the police would never notice. -- used beer mats. you are letting the secret out here, ruth. ruth and jason, thank you very much for coming in. further coverage of the london bridge attack, of course, carrying on right here on bbc news. 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 and if you miss the programme any evening you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. thank you jason beattie and ruth lea. goodbye. hello there. unai emery‘s 18 month reign as arsenal manager has come to an end. results and performances
11:52 pm
we re an end. results and performances were not under the level required, say the club. they have sacked him. they have not won a match in seven attempts, their worst run in 27 yea rs. in the last hour a message from emery was posted on the arsenal website, thanking the fans, he described his year and a half as being full of emotions, of great moments and some other more bitter ones. he says his players always honoured the shirt and deserve support. here's our sports correspondentjoe wilson. well, maybe unai emery had an impossiblejob here. well, maybe unai emery had an impossible job here. it well, maybe unai emery had an impossiblejob here. it would have been tough for anybody to follow us in wenger. after all, this is the club, and certainly the stadium, but he built. wenger got 22 years, unai emery got 18 months. i think he struggled from the start with communication, to really get his message across to the fans, and maybe wasn't getting his message across to the players by the end. the defeat to eintracht frankfurt here in the europa league was played out in front of thousands of empty
11:53 pm
seats, and no business can survive if it is losing its customers. so what, today committed arsenal fans make of their clubs decision to sack emery, and who do they want full—time as the replacement? sack emery, and who do they want full-time as the replacement? the approach wasn't really that of a manager of a big club. we didn't sort of a poet —— impose ourselves on our opposition. he had to go, his time was up. we have no loyalty to him. you could see the players were not playing for him, the performances on the pitch were absolutely shocking at times. genuinely, i desperately, desperately want mauricio pochettino. i understand some people might say he is a tottenham man, he has been there five years, he has done wonders for the club, but i think if we can offer him a contract and a project, he might take it. pochettino to arsenal? well, that would truly be a north london managerial merry—go—round. and remember, if arsenal had entertained thoughts of appointing jose mourinho, they were a week too late.
11:54 pm
the premier league is searching for a new chief executive after david pemsel resigned before even starting the role. pemsel has stepped down from the post following newspaper allegations about his private life. he was only appointed last month and was due to start in february. he was the third person to be offered the job following the departure of richard scudamore a year ago. richard masters will now stay on as interim chief executive. there was an important win for fulham in the championship, they are still third after winning 2—1 away at swansea. they went 2—nil up, thanks to an aleksander mitrovic double— he is the division's top goal scorer with 15 goals so far. george bryers pulled one back for swansea but it wasn't enough. the swans could have jumped above them in the table with a win, but they stay in sixth position for now. saracens have another win in the bag as they look to try and stay in the rugby union premiership. after the champions' 35—point deduction for breaching the salary
11:55 pm
cap they are now up to minus—18 following victory at bath. they welcomed back their england players and won 25—12 at the rec. the england captain owen farrell kicked 20 points. scotland's sean maitland went over for the only try. they would be top of the table without the points deduction but trail 11th—placed leicester by 22 points. and in the pro 14 there was an impressive win for edinburgh, who moved second in conference b after beating leaders munster 18—16 in cork. —— pro 12. eroni sau scored the decisive try in the second half. elsewhere ulster beat scarlets 29—5 in conference a. that's all the sport for now. go to the website for the latest on the second test in hamilton, where england have ta ken the second test in hamilton, where england have taken a couple of early wickets on the second day against new zealand. you can find more on
11:56 pm
all those stories on the bbc sport website. hello again. forjust about all of us, we saw the sunny but colder weather arriving across the uk on friday. skies like these fairly typical. not much cloud around. the winds relatively calm. and we've got more of the same to look forward to as we head the weekend as well. sunny but cold, sharp frosts around, some fog patches. but it is a mostly dry weekend. now, if you are heading outside of the next few hours, we are seeing a few showers across northern scotland. you can see the extent of the clear skies, that is why it is a cold night. towards the south—west, a bit of cloud working on. that is keeping the frost at bay here. speaking of the frost, it could well be the coldest night of the autumn. temperatures down to about —10 in the highlands of scotla nd about —10 in the highlands of scotland early saturday morning, and as well as that, we are going to see some fog patches around as well. some of it could be quite dense with poor visibility, so tricky travelling conditions to be expected. a couple of things that
11:57 pm
fog hates, cloud and wind. that's what we'll have moving on from the south—west early saturday morning. that means the area is most likely to see fog will be in a stretch, really, across wales and into parts of the midlands as well. that is where we are most likely to see paula ‘s ability. some of those fog patches might linger even into the early pa rt patches might linger even into the early part of the afternoon. otherwise, plenty of sunshine for most of us but they will be a bit of brains getting into the far south—west of england with cold winds developing generally across southern england through the afternoon. and a few showers for northern scotland. for most, it is a cold day. plenty of sunshine, 2— eight celsius, so below parfor time of year. in the evening time, we will see a bit more reins getting into cornwall, may be devon, perhaps coastal dorset for a time, certainly the channel islands, before the rain bearing cloud in the area of low pressure concentrates its efforts on france, and we see the high pressure dominating things for us on sunday. now, there are some subtle changes. again we are looking at a cold and
11:58 pm
frosty start to the day. the winds have changed direction for a bit, more showers in the north of scotland, but those showers will come into the thames estuary and north kent coast as well. otherwise, plenty of after a frosty start. temperatures 4— seven celsius, and we may well see the show is merging together late in the day across northern scotland. looking at the next few days, for most of us it stays on the chilly side but there isa stays on the chilly side but there is a trend for it to turn a bit mild as the week goes by from the north and west. it's your letter. —— that's your weather.
11:59 pm
12:00 am
this is bbc news i'm nuala mcgovern. our top stories: a knife—wielding terrorist who killed two people in london before being shot dead by police was out on parole and had connections to islamist terror groups. the attacker, who was wearing a fake suicide vest, was killed on london bridge on friday afternoon in full view of horrified onlookers. growing pressure on malta's prime ministerjoseph muscat to resign — as police investigate the murder of a journalist. in the netherlands — three people are stabbed in an attack in a busy shopping street in the hague.police are still hunting for the suspect. thousands of students across the world walk out of school, as part of a global climate strike.
