ah, the ebb and flow of emotions, yes, there is time for it all in a test. and india's batsmen were engrossed in the traditional patient art of survival. with lunch almost served, a fourth wicket for england. ollie robinson dismissing ajinkya rahane need to leave india 56—4. two years ago, a0 years leave india 56—a. two years ago, a0 years ago england achieved some of the notable test match victories on this ground. this test match has onlyjust begun, but as play about to resume here, england in effect they have made just about the perfect start. time for a look at the weather. here's thomaz schafernaker. it is looking absolutely fine for the cricket with this high pressure, fine for many of in fact, a
meteorological lesson now. here is a high pressure, two low pressures either side and now i will overlay a schematic this basically resembles almost the letter 0 mega. when this happens in the atmosphere the high pressure tends to be locked in between these weather systems, so the low pressure and jet stream and not much changes, it doesn't move around, for the next 8—10 days this is where forecasters will be thinking about different things to say because it is going to be more or less the same every single day. however there will be settled differences. i will talk about this breeze blowing out of the north and this cloud injust breeze blowing out of the north and this cloud in just a second but let's concentrate on the sunshine press. beautiful weather around the western isles, northern ireland, headingley looking absolutely fine, bright enough and some fine weather along the south coast as well. today's warm spot will be the further west you are, to the centre the high pressure, glasgow 26, but i think for most of us it is around the low 20s. let's talk about the
cloud in the north sea. it is linked to a very weak cold front moving from the north and introducing cloud, slightly fresher air, so that means it will feel a little bit cooler and it will remain quite cloudy in the east of the country tonight and into tomorrow. the weather front will not have much of a difference on the temperatures overnight, but it is during the daytime where that breeze is really felt, from newcastle down to norwich. here at times quite cloudy. only 15, whereas further west in the high pressure here, lighter winds and more sunshine and temperatures around 23 in cardiff. the cold front out of the way, the high pressure, remember the low pressure there and are in that all mega blocks, the high pressure is here to stay. friday very little changes. areas of cloud going around in a high pressure depending on where the wind is going from but more or less the same, 17 stornoway to around 20 or so in london. a bit more of a breeze
on the south—east on saturday. if there is anything like the run with there is anything like the run with the poor because, these showers here around the continent, just a possibility that over the weekend and into the bank all day they will creep a little bit closer to the kent coast for example, at this stage it is only a small, so it is set to remain dry. back to you. a reminder of our top story... the government says it will use �*every hour�* that's left to get people out of aghanistan, after president biden rejected pleas from borisjohnson to extend the evacuation operation. that's all from the bbc news at one. so it's goodbye from me, and on bbc one we nowjoin the bbc�*s news teams where you are. hello, i'm austin halewood with your latest sports news. after a summer of intense speculation about his future, the england captain harry kane has revealed that he will be
staying at tottenham. kane's been linked with a move to manchester city, who confirmed their interest in him just a few weeks ago, but he says he's committed to tottenham. kane was absent throughout spurs�* pre—season campaign and missed their first two games of the new season, but he came on as a substitute in the 1—0 win at wolves on sunday. here's what he said on social media... he said it "was incredible to see the reception from the spurs fans on sunday and to read some of the messages of support i've had in the last few weeks. i'll be staying at tottenham this summer and will be 100% focused on helping the team achieve success." meanwhile, the paralympics are finally underway in tokyo and team gb got off to the perfect start thanks to dame sarah storey. she won britain's first gold in the track cycling. she smashed her own world record and beat her team—mate crystal lane—wright in the final of the c5 3000 metres, individual pursuit. it's the a3—year—old's 15th paralympic title,
as patrick geary reports. the seemingly never—ending storey. dame sarah storey won her first paralympic medal in barcelona in 1992, yet here she was breaking the c5 pursuit role record, her own world record in qualifying, aged a3. so the final. on the right of your screen, crystal lane—wright, guaranteed the best seat in the house for another remarkable piece of storey glory. in the individual pursuit it's all over if one cyclist catches the other. seven laps in the great dane was approaching fast. dame sarah storey catches crystal lane—wright. her 15th gold medal won in her eight games across two sports. this time with her family thousands of miles away. to see herfinish required an early start. as soon as i work up i was like, dad, what are you doing? it was totally worth it.
and i was screaming my head off! as soon as she came quite close to crystal, i was like, i know she's going to win. that faith is well placed end of sarah storey wins her other two events, she will be officially written�*s most successful pa ralympian. —— britain's most successful paralympian. she is probably already the greatest. another incredible achievment from sarah storey. well, let's go live now to tokyo and speak to our paralympics reporter rachel lathem. it really was the perfect start to the games for gb. another gold for sarah storey but also a 1—2 with crystal lane—wright taking the silver. crystal lane-wright taking the silver. , . , , ., silver. yes, and crystal lane-wright's - silver. yes, and crystal- lane-wright's performance was lane—wright's performance was impressive in itself, a personal best time, she said that's what was most important to her, even more than the medal itself really. she was talent spotted leading up to
london 2012. she competed at her first well competition in 2011 and has been racing against dame sarah storey ever since. i spoke to her earlier and asked her what is it like to compete against and race against 15 time paralympic champion in sarah storey? it's been nearly 11 years we've been competing — it's been nearly 11 years we've been competing against each other, really — competing against each other, really i— competing against each other, really. i think it would be strange if it waswt— really. i think it would be strange if it wasn't her. i think the expectation is maybe i'm fairly... i know_ expectation is maybe i'm fairly... i know she — expectation is maybe i'm fairly... i know she works incredibly hard. i guess— know she works incredibly hard. i guess the — know she works incredibly hard. i guess the expectation is it's going to be _ guess the expectation is it's going to be her~ — guess the expectation is it's going to be her. but to have a 1—2 at a paralympic— to be her. but to have a 1—2 at a paralympic games is really, really good _ paralympic games is really, really good and — paralympic games is really, really good. and if i've got a pbm the civil medal at the end of it, i am really— civil medal at the end of it, i am really pleased, i couldn't have asked — really pleased, i couldn't have asked for— really pleased, i couldn't have asked for more.— really pleased, i couldn't have asked for more. and it wasn't 'ust action at the ﬁ asked for more. and it wasn't 'ust action at the velodrome, �* asked for more. and it wasn't just action at the velodrome, there'sl
action at the velodrome, there's been action at the aquatics centre as well. seven athletes from paralympicsgb qualified from the heat is on to their finals, and we saw 19—year—old tony shaw pick up a bronze medal, it was a paralympic debut and she made it onto the podium. also making his paralympic debut was recent done in the 100 metres butterfly, he got a silver medal. we all had eyes on telly cairney in the 200 metres freestyle that she was just pipped to that final position in the last five metres. she was like there were leading the whole way but china took the gold at the last minute and she took silver. ﬁn the gold at the last minute and she took silver. ., the gold at the last minute and she took silver-— took silver. on the whole, pretty aood da took silver. on the whole, pretty good day for _ took silver. on the whole, pretty good day for gb. _ took silver. on the whole, pretty good day for gb. thank - took silver. on the whole, pretty good day for gb. thank you - took silver. on the whole, pretty good day for gb. thank you very| good day for gb. thank you very much. now to cricket, and england are firmly in control at lunch on day one of their third test against india at headingley. the visitors chose to bat first and probably regretted that ever since becausejimmy anderson was on fire this morning... he took three ealy wickets, including the prize scalp of captain virat kholi.
india steadied the ship slightly butjust before the interval, ollie robinson got rid of ajinkya rahane to leave india on 56—a at lunch. well, there's much more on all of those stories, of course, on the bbc sport website. including the news that serena williams has pulled out of next week's us open because she hasn't yet recovered from a torn hamstring. that's all on the website. i'll have more in the next hour. mcdonald's this weekjoined a long list of big names reporting shortages of some products as a result of supply problems. and there are fears the problem is getting worse and affecting other firms too. our business correspondent ben thompson has been looking at what is behind the shortages. at first it was that peri peri chicken at nando's, then the milkshake at mcdonald's. so what is going on as far as shortages are concerned and what and where could be next? so let me just remind you, a shortage of chicken caused nando's to shut 50 sites last week. they blamed what they were calling supply chain issues.
well, those restaurants are now open again. but then on monday it was mcdonald's' turn to say it couldn't sell milkshakes or bottled drinks. this time it was due to a shortage of hgv drivers to make those deliveries. so the big question — could this problem get worse before it gets better? well, we spoke to other big—name fast food firms to ask if they've also been affected. well, the sandwich chain subway told us they are experiencing minor shortages of some fresh produce, but it said disruption so far had been minimal. the pub chain wetherspoons is also one of the biggest food buyers and sellers in the uk. they said they are aware of some forthcoming shortages of certain items, so they are now trying to find alternative suppliers. and you might not have heard of mitchells and butlers, but you will know some of its big brands — all bar one, harvester, toby carvery, to name a few. they told us they are seeing sporadic shortages. now, that's partly because of supply chain workers being pinged, and they hope that the new rules about fully vaccinated workers not having to self—isolate
would help speed things along. well, understandably, lots of companies didn't want to comment, but food industry experts say the problem really is here to stay. i think we are going to see more and more of this. i think we are literally heading to a brick wall. it is something that basically involves a lot of people and all those people have to work together, and it's no good if you haven't got enough people working in the factories or you haven't got enough drivers, that's going to have a really huge knock—on effect. and we are starting to see a knock—on effect of this for christmas — it is going to affect christmas. now, it might seem a little early to be talking about the c word, but thoughts are inevitably turning to christmas. the british meat processors association says turkey, gammon and our christmas staple, pigs in blankets, could be in danger. we usually buy a0 million packets of them, but there is a shortage of people to actually make them, so it means production could be cut by a third. so why is all of this
happening all at once? well, it is a bit of a perfect storm. there are lots of issues all coming at once. self isolating workers after the pandemic, of course, leaving firms short of staff. brexit, too, has meant big changes to import and export rules. and visa rules have prompted thousands of overseas drivers to return home. now, an ageing workforce also means that drivers are retiring, but there's not enough new recruits that are joining. and some big firms, like the supermarkets, have also put their wages up and offered bonuses to try and attract new drivers, but it means that smaller businesses, like steve's, are struggling to hang onto their staff. we've had some very good staff who have left us for food distribution companies, mainly. our general fleet has 25 drivers. we are currently down, as of today, we are down five. goods are being delayed, we are not getting stuff to stores, to retailers, to industry as it should be. we are at the moment, here, we are running behind round about three days. so we are now starting to collect
and deliver freight that should have been delivered last week. we have increased all of our drivers' salaries, we have increased benefits. it gets to a point where we can only absorb so much of the cost ourselves before the business becomes unviable. well, it seems that problem is set to get worse. the road haulage association says that around 2000 drivers are leaving the job every single week, and just half that, 1000 of them, are signing up. so there are now calls for a temporary visa scheme to allow eu drivers to work here once again, to help ease that problem. now, of course though, as the industry gears up for what should be its busiest time of year, there are real worries right now about what will and won't be available on the shelves this christmas. the media regulator ofcom has told us that it has left the controversial stonewall
workplace equality scheme "diversity champions". the scheme has come under repeated scrutiny following allegations stonewall was misrepresenting the law around trans equality — something the organisation denies. ofcom says its decision to leave the scheme is partly due to its need to �*remain impartial�* — but added its commitment to supporting lgbtq rights and freedoms is "as strong as ever." the headlines on bbc news... britain promises to use "every hour that�*s left" to evacuate as many people as it can from afghanistan, as america refuses to extend its airlift deadline beyond next tuesday. so far the raf evacuates over 10,000 people, including 3a0 embassy staff, and 2,500 uk nationals. researchers say protection against covid from two doses of the vaccine starts to wane within six months.
now it�*s time for across the uk. and investigations are continuing after a two—year—old girl died following a fire at a caravan on lincolnshire�*s east coast. crews were called to the caravan park on monday night, a mum and three other children managed to escape. the caravan fire from which a mother and three of her children escaped, but which claimed the life of her fourth, the two—year—old girl, two nights ago, at this caravan park. we are a nights ago, at this caravan park. - are a couple of caravans up from where it happened, and the mood isn�*t very good. where it happened, and the mood isn't very good-— isn't very good. today, those still holida in: isn't very good. today, those still holidaying at _ isn't very good. today, those still holidaying at the _ isn't very good. today, those still holidaying at the park _ isn't very good. today, those still holidaying at the park are - isn't very good. today, those still holidaying at the park are trying l isn't very good. today, those still| holidaying at the park are trying to come to terms with what happened. it come to terms with what happened. it wasjust a spark come to terms with what happened. it was just a spark at first, then all

treated in hospital. after catching salmonella from pork scratchings made by a snack food company in bolton. let�*s get the latest from andy gill who�*s there this lunchtime. just bring us up to date. this involves six _ just bring us up to date. this involves six pork _ just bring us up to date. ti 3 involves six pork scratchings and crackling products made by a company here in bolton. the bags all have a best before date of the 19th of february or earlier, the food standards agency advises unsurprisingly not to eat any of these products. it says tests have linked 176 cases of salmonella poisoning to products made here at this factory between september last year and now. salmonella can make you no shows, you can give you vomiting and diarrhoea and fever, it can be more serious in the very young and those with weakened immune system, and as you say, at least 12
people who have eaten products linked to the outbreak here have had to be taken to hospital.— to be taken to hospital. thank you very much- _ the first of more than 100,000 festival—goers, have begun arriving in reading, for the festival over the bank holiday weekend. it�*s thought to be the biggest live music event going ahead anywhere in the world — with many others having been cancelled for a second year running — due to covid. authorities in berkshire know it will bring a boost to the economy, but also know the risks. just this week a music and surfing festival in cornwall was linked to almost 5,000 covid cases. joe campbell reports. after all the festival preparations, the man behind reading was this week taking time out, putting the finishing touches to an exhibition at the town�*s museum. one of the more bizarre things i�*ve counted! it marks the 50th anniversary of the first festival in 1971. a more innocent time, a pre—covid time. perfect, thank you very much.
never mind the mobile phones, attendees at the first festival would probably never have dream to people might one day be expected to demonstrate they been vaccinated or tested negative for a virus, at people at this trial event, staged by the reading organisers, were in suffolk last month. in general, i would say the scientific board, the sage board, and public health england locally in east anglia were all very happy, and the results were very much in line with what they expected. i think reading festival will be the same. privately, some of those in authority at reading admit to not being exactly overjoyed at the prospect of thousands of young people descending upon the town, especially since many will not be fullyjabbed, given the very late decision to extend the vaccination programme to 16 to 18—year—olds. we are not without the knowledge that there aren�*t obviously some sort of risks. the best thing we can do is to ensure that we have mitigated it to the levels
that we are certainly required to and reading festival, working closely with us, is providing the safest festival that we can. and that meansjust like the riggers�* hard hats and high—vis, regular covid testing will be part of the procedure for anyone coming to the site this year. joe campbell, bbc south today, reading. let�*s get more on the first day of competitive action at the paralympics. sarah storey has already won her 15th career gold medal at the velodrome — while paralympics gb have also secured silver medals in cycling and swimming. the games are taking place a year late, and a little earlier my colleaguejoanna gosling spoke to andrew parsons, president of the international paralympic committee who is in tokyo. she began by asking him how challenging it had been getting to the point that the games
could finally get underway. it�*s been extremely challenging, the last 18 months have been really tough on the organisers, and the international olympic committee, but mainly on the athletes trying to prepare for these games in an environment of uncertainty and not knowing if these games were going to take place or not. but we are here, first day of competition, so far we are very happy where we are. and what�*s it like hosting the games in a city in a state of emergency? of course, due to the state of emergency, we don�*t have spectators. we know that the situation outside of the paralympics specific bubble, it is really serious here injapan, and in tokyo the number of cases is rising, here injapan. but we have our playbooks, our guidelines and restrictions in place to make sure that we do not represent the threat to the japanese population, as well as we can protect our athletes and officials.
there�*s been one covid case in an athlete in the village. there have been other covid cases with people linked to the games, but not living in the village. are you confident that the measures, the precautions, are tight enough? yes, iam. the key here is... we know that we are going to have positive cases, so the key here is how we then monitor these cases, we isolate them, so they don�*t spread the virus inside the village, and they do not spread the virus from the village to the japanese population. so it�*s not that we are going to the get to the end of the games with one or two cases, we will probably have more than that, but it�*s how we then control the situation. ﬁnd more than that, but it's how we then control the situation.— controlthe situation. and i know ou are controlthe situation. and i know you are especially _ controlthe situation. and i know you are especially passionate - control the situation. and i know i you are especially passionate about disability, the conversations around disability, the conversations around disability, not stopping once the games stop. disability, not stopping once the games stop-—

people with disability. but with the professionalism you also have... it is the pain of growing but we are dealing with reasonably well with liz new features inside a fairly big movement. as we heard earlier, a public consultation is under way to ask if beavers should be reintroduced into britain�*s rivers. they were once widespread throughout britain but were hunted to extinction a00 years ago. studies have shown the return of the mammals could help to recall river habitats, but some farmers have expressed concerns as our science can�*t despondent reports. beavers were once a common sight in britain�*s waterways, but could we soon see them again in england�*s rivers? that�*s the focus of a government
consultation asking for people�*s views on the mammal�*s return. well, it�*s really exciting news. so beavers were once present across the northern hemisphere of the world and they were hunted to extinction a00 years ago in britain. and they have slowly, for the last 20 or 30 years, been reintroduced primarily in enclosures. and a government trial last year ended on the river otter, which is the first wild population to be studied. and it was a five—year trial and they concluded that the beavers could stay. and so for the last year, we�*ve now been waiting for the government to propose this consultation, which is to form consensus on what happens with future wild releases. beavers were wiped out a00 years ago — hunted for their meat and glossy fur. today, there are wild populations in scotland, after reintroductions in rivers there, and trials in wales and england have been assessing the mammal�*s impact on the environment. the consultation will last for 12 weeks. after that, we�*ll find out if this lost species is ready to make a comeback.
rebecca morelle, bbc news. now it�*s time for a look at the weather with tomasz shfafernaker. forecasters are going to be probably running out of things to say over the next few days. there is going to be so little change in the weather. brought by this high pressure which has anchored itself across the uk, it�*s really established now and it�*s here to stay for the next few days. but there is a cold front here across the north sea, and if you look at the cloud, is coming out of the north, moving southwards, that will introduce slightly fresher air tomorrow. today the best of the weather so far has been across the north—west of the uk, it�*s been so fine for the last couple of days. look at all that cloud across into wales, this cloud will be breaking through the day and giving way to some sunshine, but really the warmest, the sunniest weather will be in the south—west and the west
of scotland, up to 26 degrees today in glasgow, mid 20s possible for northern ireland. here�*s the cool front moving across during the night, that will introduce fresher conditions to the north sea coast initially, and then the cloud in the fresh conditions will spread further inland as we go through the course of the on thursday. not much rain on this weather front, it�*s mostly cloud from the north—east of england through yorkshire into just about the midlands and the south—east. the best of the weather i think on thursday will be across western areas. 23 could be the warm spots in wales, in cardiff. on friday, back in high pressure. the high pressure is still here and not moving a lot, it�*s just changing shape a bit and that also changes the wind direction across the uk. the areas of cloud we have right now will move to different parts of the country over the coming days, and that�*s a really difficult thing to forecast, cloud amounts,
the different layers through the atmosphere, overlapping — for example, here on saturday lots of sunshine across western parts of the uk, perhaps a bit of cloud further east. sunday will be no different, and we will stick our neck out into bank holiday monday and probably beyond as well. that high pressure is certainly here to stay for now.
this is bbc news. i�*m jane hill. the headlines... britain promises to use "every hour that�*s left" to evacuate as many people as it can from afghanistan, as america refuses to extend its airlift deadline beyond next tuesday. the troops will be withdrawn by the end of the month and what we will do is use every remaining hour and day to get our national such as we can, the afghans who work for us, out. so far the raf has brought out more than 10,000 people, including over 6000 afghans — but many still remain. we�*ll report on the afghan families here in britain — desperately worried about loved ones who are stranded. inside, ifeel like i�*m broken into
