we don't need to prove anything here. i don't think we are taking a risk because of people think that we were better a0 years ago, fine. # you're not the belle, i you should have been. # the album includes a number of songs about relationships ending. both couples in the band divorced shortly before the group split in 1982. people have read a lot of it into various lyrics. and of course, there is some of that in the lyrics, but most is fiction. but the emotions are there. yeah, yeah. but not the exact situations. no exactly. but after waiting a0 years for abba to get back together, the reunion could be very short. i've said that's it. i don't want to do another ab album.
but i'm not alone in this, there are four of us. yeah. if they twist my arm i might change my mind. i think you can twist his arm, bjorn. the ladies might be able to do that. yeah. it'll take them to do it, actually. yeah, i think so! colin paterson, bbc news, stockholm. time for a look at the weather — here's nick miller. the weekend weather is the name of the game in this forecast. we will get to that in a moment but first let's reflect on a cold, frosty start across a large part of england this morning where skies stay clear the longest. in rural oxfordshire, the longest. in rural oxfordshire, the temperature fell to —5. in glasgow this morning it was plus nine degrees, so why the difference? what is happening is cloud cover. a lot of it is coming in from the west
into the uk. still some sunshine where it was a frosty start across eastern part of england. we are changing the chilli, northerly breeze to high pressure from the atlantic. behind this weather fronts, which is slowly moving southwards this afternoon and squeezing out the last of the chilly air from the east and south—east of england. as we've established along with this flow of milder air, plenty of cloud is coming in and in the hills of the west you may encounter like rain but more into north of scotland where there is still sunshine across the eastern side of england. it will slowly cloud over as they afternoon goes on. temperatures are a little bit higher, although chilly in east anglia and south—east england at around nine, 10 celsius. looking dry for bonfire night in most places. overnight the rain will get heavier into north of scotland, along with that there will be strengthening wind as well. when i show you the temperatures overnight there is no frost going into tomorrow morning. there is rain on the way tomorrow
morning in scotland as it moves its way southwards through northern ireland come into northern england west of the pennines and into wales. other than midlands, eastern and southern england will only see patchy rain as we get into the evening. behind the weather front it will brighten up in the afternoon in northern ireland and scotland with a few showers. temperatures are a little bit higher, 14 showing up here. it is windy across the uk and especially in northern scotland. bear that in mind tomorrow evening if there are some fireworks displays and some strong, gusty winds in northern scotland overnight and into sunday. gusting may be 60 mph in some places with high tide with big and dangerous ways. but the wind slowly easing during sunday. for many places on sunday it will be a dry day, cloud in the west, sunny spells in east and temperatures on the mild side and that is where they will stay into next week.
that's all from the bbc news at one, so it's goodbye from me, good afternoon. it's 1.30pm and here's your latest sports news. yorkshire county cricket�*s former chairman roger hutton says its time for a new path for the club — and has urged other board members to follow his lead and resign. the club have also lost key sponsers and kit deals, after saying they won't take disciplinary action against employees, despite "racial harrassment and bullying" against azeem rafiq. more resignations are expected to follow. hutton has been spealing exclusively to our sports editor dan roan — here's what he had to say when asked if there was evidence of institutional racism at yorkshire county cricket club. i'v e i've not personally met anyone that i've not personally met anyone that i would consider races at yorkshire county cricket club, but i have seen
the report and i have seen the allegations being upheld of acts that have been racist from people who are no longer at the club. more broadly than that, i would say that what i've seen is a culture that is locked in the past, a culture that finds it difficult to accept challenge and change, and that, in my view, it would be great if we could move forward. well, in a separate development, rana naved—ul—hasan has corroborated azeem rafiq's claim that michael vaughan made a racist comment to a group of asian players — a claim which vaughan "totally denies". the former england captain said he was named in yorkshire's rafiq report. vaughan is alleged to have told a group of asian players, including rafiq and naved, "too many of you lot — we need to do something about it." ex—pakistan bowler naved told espn he also heard the alleged comment. writing in his newspapaer column on thursday, the bbc pundit said
he "completely and categorically denies" saying that. the former england batsman mark ramprakash spoke to bbc breakfast earlier. azeem rafiq has also said, publicly, that whilst he has named people involved, it's not about those individuals. it's more about trying to get systemic change in a club like yorkshire, which change has proven to be very difficult. and the club, i think, has failed to evolve quick enough in the way that society is changing, and our attitudes towards race and racism. new zealand are still in the hunt for a place in the semi finals at the t20 world cup, but namibia are out. new zealand recovered from a sticky start to post 163—4. glen phillips and jimmy neesham boosted the total with some lusty blows. namibia were always
struggling and in the end could only muster iii—7. india take on scotland in around 25 minutes time. some rugby news now and the rfu have confirmed that owen farrell will miss the captain's run today ahead of tomorrows match with tonga after testing positive for covid. he'll remain in isolation ahead of another lateral flow and pcr test later today so it is not yet clear whether he will have to miss the game. meanwhile saracens number 8 poppy cleall has been named as england women's captain for the first time when they face new zealand this sunday. regular skipper sarah hunter is on the bench as head coach simon middleton makes five changes to the side that beat the world champions last week. scotland have named a strong side to face australia in sunday with prop pierre schoemann winning his second cap. last weekend's win over tonga fell outside the international window — meaning many players were unavailable so gregor townsend has recalled captain stuart hogg at full back with the likes of ali price and finn russell returning too. british and irish lions duhan van der merwe and hamish watson also start
barcelona are set to announce xavi hernandez�*s dramatic return to the club as coach, replacing ronald koeman who was sacked last month. xavi's current side — qatari club al sadd — have confirmed that a deal has been agreed, with barca paying a release clause. xavi has been coaching in qatar since 2019 and will now rejoin the club where he enjoyed huge success as a player. i'll have more for you in the next hour. thank you very much. let's return to our top story now and yorkshire's county cricket club chairman, roger hutton, has resigned over the board's response to racism experienced by the former player azeem rafiq. the club took no displinary action, even though a report upheld some of the player's claims.
mr hutton has been speaking to our sports editor, dan roan, who began by asking him how big a problem the club has with racism. well, it is hard to know. when i firstjoined as chairman in 2020, the allegations from azeem rafiq came quickly after so i thought it was important to ask that question and we instructed an international law firm to look at that question and they have provided a report. and that report concludes, perhaps unsatisfactorily, that there is insufficient evidence whether to work out yorkshire is institutionally racist or not but what i would say is that there is a game wide issue that ultimately the ecb would be well advised to take a broader look at and approach across the whole game.— the whole game. finding there is insufficient _
the whole game. finding there is insufficient evidence _ the whole game. finding there is insufficient evidence that - the whole game. finding there is insufficient evidence that the - insufficient evidence that the county is institutionally racist is not the same thing as saying it is not the same thing as saying it is not and what do you think, based on what you have seen? he not and what do you think, based on what you have seen?— what you have seen? i've not personally — what you have seen? i've not personally met _ what you have seen? i've not personally met anyone - what you have seen? i've not personally met anyone i - what you have seen? i've not. personally met anyone i would consider that yorkshire county cricket club but i have seen the report and i have seen that allegations have been upheld of acts that have been racist from people no longer at the club. and more broadly than that i would say that what i've seen is a culture locked in the past, a culture that finds it difficult to accept challenge and change, and in my view it would be great if it could move forward. who great if it could move forward. who are ou great if it could move forward. who are you referring _ great if it could move forward. who are you referring to there? well, i great if it could move forward. who | are you referring to there? well, on the board there _ are you referring to there? well, on the board there are _ are you referring to there? well, on the board there are seven _ are you referring to there? well, on the board there are seven people, l the board there are seven people, five non— executives, who will share a vision of improving the culture
and change at yorkshire county cricket club, but beyond that, the senior executive and some senior management have not really displayed an understanding of the real issues and have not really shown contrition or a desire to move forward, and for me, that has been problematic. how would ou me, that has been problematic. how would you describe that attitude? are you shocked or disappointed? i’m are you shocked or disappointed? i'm 'ust are you shocked or disappointed? i“n just disappointed. these are not bad people but in my view it was sad, and i've tried a long time to persuade the club of the right way to approach the situation but ultimately myself and the non— executives have failed to do that. how much resistance have you encountered along the way when it came to trying to unearth what had happened? did you encounter it? ultimately it is fair to say that the club was open to the independent investigation, which was great news and i was no part of that
investigation so i've not seen the evidence and i was no part of the evidence and i was no part of the evidence that yorkshire or anyone else put forward and i have to say that when the report was finally produced, and it took far too long to produce, and that was aggravating for all of us but when it was finally produced there was a feeling by many in the club to accept its findings or understand them or recognise them and since then that has been incredibly frustrating to allow us to firstly own up as a club to the situation and apologise fully and fairly to azeem rafiq for the failings of the club and in my view, constantly failed to deliver that proper apology and that has been sad and there are a whole host of recommendations that should have been embraced and we should be looking forward and here we are 13 weeks later and i am the non— executives have failed to persuade
the executive and senior management to deliver those changes and that is broadly a great shame, just a great shame. broadly a great shame, 'ust a great shame. ., ., ., ., , shame. how thorough was the investigation? _ shame. how thorough was the investigation? was _ shame. how thorough was the investigation? was it - shame. how thorough was the l investigation? was it hampered shame. how thorough was the - investigation? was it hampered in some way? the investigation? was it hampered in some way?— investigation? was it hampered in somewa ? , ., ., some way? the investigation was as thorou . h some way? the investigation was as thorough as — some way? the investigation was as thorough as it _ some way? the investigation was as thorough as it could _ some way? the investigation was as thorough as it could be _ some way? the investigation was as thorough as it could be but - some way? the investigation was as thorough as it could be but it - some way? the investigation was as thorough as it could be but it is - thorough as it could be but it is hampered because the reality is whilst i approached the ecb to assist, ultimately they couldn't or did not want to and as a consequence, yorkshire had to fund this investigation itself and don't forget this broke out at the time of just a few weeks after covid when every 1st—class county was strapped for money and relying on the ecb support in general, so there were financial constraints but also legal constraints. the investigation team could not compel everybody or anybody to engage with the process and in my view, sadly, a number of people didn't want to get involved in the process and therefore the
independent investigation on the panel could not make findings that others might have done if everyone had engaged with it. that others might have done if everyone had engaged with it.— had engaged with it. that is roger hudson who _ had engaged with it. that is roger hudson who has _ had engaged with it. that is roger hudson who has resigned - had engaged with it. that is roger hudson who has resigned today. l in response to that allegation that they did not help with the investigation — the ecb released a statement, saying that yorkshire did reach out to the ecb at the start of the investigation. but went on to say that as its role to regulate the entire game, it must act independently of club investigations. continuing fallout to that story and we will keep you up—to—date with any further conversations that emerge as a result of that but that is latest with roger hudson's resignation. ? roger returning to the fisheries policy for the uk and difficulties around the fisheries, we are hearing there
will be a news conference in the next little while perhaps because lord frost, the british negotiator out there and that is the set up shop for the news conference. he has been meeting with the vice president of the eu commission about fisheries and issues and disputes in terms of eu fishing access, the eu commissioner vice president, i should give him his full title and there are a few comments coming out as a result of the meeting that the two men have been holding in brussels today. lord frost apparently set out the uk assessment of the negotiations around the protocol and there was a discussion about fisheries policy and lord frost reiterated that the uk has a licensed 98% of all eu vessels which are wanting to fish in uk waters, so those discussions are continuing and we hear there will be more meetings next week in london on the two men
will need in london next week and official level discussions will continue during the week, so from what we are hearing, no big formal resolution. handshakes there, but we will hear a news briefing and those images are from the meetings yesterday and we will have that news briefing and press update in the next little while as soon as that gets under way we will perhaps hear some more about the conclusions or otherwise of the discussions between the two men. thousands of young people are taking part in a march in the scottish city of glasgow, where the un climate summit is focusing on youth. the swedish teenager greta thunberg, who launched the fridays for future movement, will address fellow campaigners. many of those taking part in climate protests today are calling for �*climatejustice' — but what exactly does that mean? here's our reality check correspondent chris morris to explain.
who is most responsible for climate change? who's worst affected by it? and who should take the lead in trying to fix it? these are the big questions at the heart of climate justice. the poorest and most vulnerable people around the world are the least likely to cause the pollution leading to climate change. if you look at the greenhouse gas emissions that are heating the planet up, the richest 1% of the earth's population are responsible for more than the poorest 50%. yet the poor are often the most likely to be affected by its most detrimental impacts — farmland turning into desert, sea level rises threatening homes, or extreme weather events like flash floods and wildfires. these things can happen anywhere, but the poorest countries have far fewer resources to deal with them. climate justice also means taking account of historical emissions. it's true that china produces
the most greenhouse gases in the world at the moment, but over the last 250 years, the us and europe have produced far more. the rich world has accepted responsibility for these emissions, but a promise to send $100 billion a year to developing countries by 2020 to help them adapt to climate change and to build a greener economies in the future hasn't yet been met. climatejustice, though, isn't only about numbers — it's really about people. the school strikes for climate have drawn a lot of attention to this, demanding that fair solutions are found between rich and poor. that means supporting the very poorest countries and making sure they're not forced to take on huge amounts of debt, but also tackling inequality between people in richer societies. whether it's about how you heat your home or maybe the switch to electric cars, forcing change onto people who can't afford it isn't going to work. so, governments are going to have to help people pay for it.
a tax on carbon is one suggestion, so people — and especially companies — that use the most pay the most. whatever happens, it's going to cost a lot less than acting too slowly to deal with global warming, and there is good reason to believe a green revolution can create millions of newjobs around the world. but whether you look at the whole world orjust the local area where you live, the transition to a more sustainable economy and a more sustainable planet is only going to work if it's going to be fair. let's cross to glasgow now where thousands of young people are taking part in a march where the un climate summit is focusing on youth. those who are so gravely impacted in some cases by climate change and they are making their voice heard today and you might see stages set
“p today and you might see stages set up towards the right of your screen and there will be speeches later on when the marches finish and they gather and hearfrom when the marches finish and they gather and hear from various speakers about their demands for world leaders and politicians to do the right thing, as they would say, around climate change. back in glasgow in the next little while. but now we will return to the podium we looked at a few moments ago with a news briefing getting under way. aha, a news briefing getting under way. reduction of up to 80% of sbs checks. it is a whole new model for how good ? goods can be moved from great britain to northern ireland and it would result in strengthening opportunities for the people of northern ireland, and this was a big move by us, but after today we have seen no move at all from the uk side. ifound this
seen no move at all from the uk side. i found this disappointing and once again, i urge the uk government to engage with us sincerely. from this perspective, i see next week as an important one. we should focus all efforts on reaching a solution as soon as possible. our aim to ? should be to establish stability and predictability for northern ireland. we hear a lot at the moment but let there be no doubt that trickling article 16 to seek the renegotiation of the protocol would have serious consequences. serious for northern ireland as it would lead to instability and unpredictability, and serious also for the eu and uk relations in general as it would mean a rejection of eu efforts to find the constant short solution to the fermentation of the protocol. discussions will continue at expert
level and i am committed to travelling to london on the 12th of november. i am equally committed on theissue november. i am equally committed on the issue of medicines, and remain ready to do whatever it takes to ensure the long—term, uninterrupted supply to northern ireland by changing our own rules. lastly, we also exchanged views on the pending issue of french fisheries licences. the trade and cooperation agreement is clear. vessels that are fishing in the territorial waters of the uk and crown dependencies should be allowed to continue. all french vessel is entitled to a licence should receive one. i support the commissioner in his ongoing efforts to find a solution. thank you very much for your attention and have a
good afternoon.— much for your attention and have a good afternoon. some quite strong words at the _ good afternoon. some quite strong words at the start _ good afternoon. some quite strong words at the start of _ good afternoon. some quite strong words at the start of that, - good afternoon. some quite strong words at the start of that, urging . words at the start of that, urging the uk government to engage with us sincerely was the phrase used. the eu commission vice president following the meetings in brussels today with lord frost, representing the uk and the eu commission vice president wanting the uk government to engage sincerely. this is partly about the northern ireland protocol, and the british government has been putting out some explainer is as it seesitin putting out some explainer is as it sees it in terms of the talks that happened in brussels today with lord frost saying progress has been limited and the eu proposals don't currently deal effectively with the fundamental difficulties in the way that the protocol is operating. this is all about toast brexit trade, and there will be, as you gather there, further meetings in london at the end of next week. there was
discussion about fisheries policy as well and the difficulties around all of that and eu fishing vessels and their access, of that and eu fishing vessels and theiraccess, but of that and eu fishing vessels and their access, but more talks clearly to come on the northern ireland protocol. the trial gets underway in the us state of georgia later, for the three white men accused of chasing and killing a black man because they thought he had looked like a crime suspect. ahmaud arbery had been jogging close to his home but his killers were only arrested after a national outcry. aleem maqbool reports from brunswick. it's been called a modern—day lynching. three armed white men in georgia pursued a young black man they said resembled a burglary suspect. they cornered him and shot and killed him. ahmaud arbery, an avid runner, had been jogging through this area just a short distance
from his own home when the men decided tojump into their trucks and give chase. their own statements show one of the men involved in the killing of this 25—year—old used a racial slur as he lay dying. sadly, murals of unarmed black men who have been shot and killed are now dotted in towns and cities right across this country. but in ahmaud arbery�*s case, he didn't die at the hands of the police, but at the hands of people who believed they could act as an extension of law enforcement and do what they like. and that, after his death, appears to be precisely how the police treated them. there is body—cam footage that is too distressing to show, where we see ahmaud arbery writhing on the ground, dying, not being given attention. throughout the encounter, police provide comfort to the men who killed him. i can only imagine... they certainly don't appear to be treated as murder suspects.
in fact, it was only ten weeks later after protests when the video of the killing taken by one of the men went viral that travis mcmichael and his father, greg, and ronnie bryan, were even arrested. they were eventually charged and now go to trial. you can intentionally and deliberately kill another person in self defence and not have committed murder. you would be not guilty. and it is still self defence if they chased him? that is because they were attempting to execute a citizen's arrest. ahmaud's case has already led to the scrapping of a civil war—era citizens arrest law in georgia. his mother told me she hoped somehow good would come out of this tragedy and the attention it has got. i hope that in losing ahmaud, that people that look like ahmaud will be able to jog, they will be able to run, they will be able to do whatever and be free.
and not to be worried about being chased with guns and killed. for the trial, taking place in a city that is majority black, there will be only one african—americanjuror. and here it appears easier to overturn laws than to change the attitudes that undoubtedly contributed to ahmaud's death. aleem maqbool, bbc news brunswick, georgia. now it's time for a look at the weather with nick miller. cloudy skies out there for many and it's turning milder. it was 9 in glasgow first thing this morning whereas across a large part of england it stayed clear for long enough last night for a frost and in benson in oxfordshire the temperature was close to —5, the lowest reading of the season so far and it was the frosty parts of england that had sunshine this morning, but the satellite picture from earlier shows the cloud moving in from the west and changing
the wind direction from the chilly northerly to a less cold westerly around this area of high pressure from the atlantic and behind the weather front moving south as that keeps on moving south it is squeezing away the chilly conditions from the far south—east of england. in the flow of air coming in from the atlantic there is plenty of cloud and not a huge amount of rain and maybe light rain and drizzle from the thickest cloud and western areas and more persistent rain in north—west scotland. to the east of the high ground and across many eastern parts of the uk, a few sunny spells and bright skies for much of the day into kent and east sussex and as for the temperatures, they are a little higher than they have been but still quite chilly in east anglia and south—east england before the milder airfilters in. a dry bonfire night for many places but still some rain across northern scotland, turning heavy in the north—west with the stronger wind as the night goes on. no frost around with largely cloudy skies going into the morning. tomorrow, we will bring an area
of rain south across england and it will be heaviest to the west of the pennines and into wales were as much of the midlands and southern england will stay mainly dry until we get to the later stages of the afternoon and evening. behind the area of rain, brightening up in northern ireland and scotland. blustery showers in northern scotland and it is turning windy across all parts but particularly northern scotland, and bear this in mind for any organised fireworks displays on saturday evening as we will have strong, gusty winds, especially in coastal areas and it could be 70mph for a time and into sunday morning coupled with high tides, it could produce dangerous waves on the coast. so windy early on sunday with plenty of showers before the wind it eases and for many places on sunday the chance of a shower but most will stay dry, sunny spells especially in eastern parts and temperatures are still on the mild side.
this is bbc news. i'm ben boulos. the headlines at 2... the chairman of yorkshire county cricket club resigns over the club's handling of racism experienced by one of its former players, azeem rafiq. i would say that what i've seen is a culture that's locked in the past. a culture that finds it difficult to accept challenge and change, and that, in my view, it would be great if it can move forward. greta thunberg joins thousands of young activists marching through the streets of glasgow — demanding politicians at the cop26 meeting take serious action on climate change. the swedish activist urged glasgow workers who are on strike during the summit tojoin her on the march
