there are reports of a significant police presence at the office of his lawyers in melbourne. earlier, a judge in melbourne ruled that he must be released immediately from immigration detention. djokovic arrived at the airport last week to defend his australian open title, which begins next monday. he was initally granted an exemption from covid vaccination rules, after recovering from the virus last month. djokovic�*s lawyers argued that cancellation was unreasonable — the government conceded this, and judge anthony kelly also agreed. but as fans celebrate outside the court, counsel for the australian govenrment told the hearing that the immigration minister might exercise his legal powers to cancel the visa regardless. let's cross live to melbourne and talk to our correspondent, shaimaa khalil. she has been following all the twists and turns of this. shaimaa do
we know where novak djokovic is right now, first of all? this we know where novak d'okovic is right now, first of all?_ right now, first of all? this is the million dollar _ right now, first of all? this is the million dollar question _ right now, first of all? this is the million dollar question and - right now, first of all? this is the million dollar question and there | million dollar question and there says the question that many of his supporters and fans who have gathered outside the court and gathered outside the court and gathered here in federation square a bit earlier to celebrate, they are not here at the moment because they want to know where he is and they want to know where he is and they want to know where he is and they want to be there. no one is fully sure where he is. we understand that he may be at his lawyer�* office at the moment but again, this cannot be confirmed. what we do know is theirs. we know thatjudge anthony kelly has made a decision that novak djokovic should be released from detention, should be allowed entry to australia and to compete in the australian open. he has made a decision to overturn the government�*s decision to revoke his these are. this has been the judgment today and this has been why there has been a jubilant atmosphere with his supporters. but then things got confusing and uncertain yet
again because while this was happening, we also know that the lawyer for the government has said that the government, the federal government, specifically the immigration minister, could still exercise his executive powers and cancel the visa and attempt to deport novak djokovic. on what basis, for what reasons? we still don�*t know but we know an air of uncertainty and confusion hangs over that decision by the judge. so uncertainty and confusion hangs over that decision by the judge.— that decision by the 'udge. so based on what you _ that decision by the 'udge. so based on what you — that decision by the judge. so based on what you are saying, _ that decision by the judge. so based on what you are saying, i _ that decision by the judge. so based on what you are saying, i think - that decision by the judge. so based on what you are saying, i think your| on what you are saying, i think your answer to my next question is you simply don�*t know this at this stage because they have been some reports and i emphasise unconfirmed reports that novak djokovic had already been detained again. i take it you cannot confirm that? we detained again. i take it you cannot confirm that?— detained again. i take it you cannot confirm that? ~ ., ., confirm that? we cannot confirm that but we do know— confirm that? we cannot confirm that but we do know from _ confirm that? we cannot confirm that but we do know from our— confirm that? we cannot confirm that but we do know from our colleagues. but we do know from our colleagues in belgrade that his family has been speaking. that novak djokovic�*s brother has been speaking. he said "we are going through some tough
time. novak showed how persistent he is and has stuck by his ideals." and they are getting consultations. we don�*t know exactly what that means. it's don�*t know exactly what that means. it�*s been very difficult few days for novak djokovic and his family but there is certainty as to what happened to the world number one. so we wait to see what these next few hours are going to bring. but definitely how it feels right now in melbourne is that an air of jubilation and celebration among his supporters, remember, there are many other australians who are still angry that he was given that exemption in the first place because it is a country that has endured the harshest lockdowns and covid—i9 rules. but among their supporters, they were celebrating and now they simply don�*t know what is going to happen. simply don't know what is going to ha en. �* , simply don't know what is going to hauen. �* , ., ., simply don't know what is going to hauen. �* , . ., ., happen. briefly, among those who were angry — happen. briefly, among those who were angry about _ happen. briefly, among those who were angry about novak _ happen. briefly, among those who were angry about novak djokovic's were angry about novak djokovic�*s exemption, what has the reaction been to this ruling? it�*s exemption, what has the reaction been to this ruling?— been to this ruling? it's really interesting. _ been to this ruling? it's really interesting. you _ been to this ruling? it's really interesting. you only - been to this ruling? it's really interesting. you only need . been to this ruling? it's really interesting. you only need to| been to this ruling? it's really - interesting. you only need to look at social media. on twitter, for
example, when we were feeding those lines, those updates about his release and the judge�*s decision, you could feel the anger. people saying, how could this happen? a man and a world—class athlete that has been quite vocal, quite public about the fact that he opposed vaccination, allowed to take part in the australian open? many people making the point that they had been locked down, they had been urged by the politicians to get vaccinated, that essentially the condition for people here in australia for freedom of movement, for freedom people here in australia for freedom of movement, forfreedom of people here in australia for freedom of movement, for freedom of travel after a couple of years of closed borders, has been full vaccination are now people are urged to get the booster. so for them it is almost a slap in the face, those who are angry and have been separated from their families, angry and have been separated from theirfamilies, that angry and have been separated from their families, that a top athlete who said he did not want to get vaccinated, postvaccination, is now being allowed in the country and has now been allowed by a judge to take
part in the australian open. ok. part in the australian open. 0k, thank you _ part in the australian open. 0k, thank you very _ part in the australian open. 0k, thank you very much _ part in the australian open. ok, thank you very much for that. shaimaa khalil in melbourne. i think we can show you some live shots from the city. some photographers waiting in what appears to be the entrance or exit to a car park, where we think novak djokovic might be. he might be in that building, which may be his lawyer�* office, we understand. as shaimaa was saying, we are not quite sure of his whereabouts at the moment. we can talk a little more about this decision. jack anderson is professor of law at the university of melbourne. hejoins us now. thank you he joins us now. thank you for your time today. were you surprised by the ruling or not?— time today. were you surprised by the ruling or not? pretty surprised. the law in australia _ the ruling or not? pretty surprised. the law in australia is _ the ruling or not? pretty surprised. the law in australia is quite - the law in australia is quite heavily weighted in favour of the government authorities. i was also surprised on the basis for the
decision. from what we can gather, we have only got that in part. we all thought that it would surround the medical exemption, that novak djokovic got from tennis australia and is certified by the local state government here in victoria. we thought it would be about that medical exemption. but actually, it seems what thejudge medical exemption. but actually, it seems what the judge said is that this was... what happened on the night that novak djokovic arrived in melbourne airport was procedurally unfair. so that was a surprise. and what we mean by procedurally unfair is actually pretty straightforward. in that he was interrogated by border force in that he was interrogated by borderforce migration in that he was interrogated by border force migration officers in that he was interrogated by borderforce migration officers in the early morning. they gave him three hours to come up with an answer to his question and that is what they promised to him. you can get some legal advice. but within the hour, they had made the decision. in other words, they did
not give him the time that they promised and this was deemed by the judge to be procedurally unfair and in the end, the government admitted that and did not contest. so essentially would you call this a technicality?— technicality? 0h, very much a technicality- _ technicality? 0h, very much a technicality. very _ technicality? 0h, very much a technicality. very much - technicality? 0h, very much a technicality. very much a - technicality? 0h, very much a - technicality. very much a procedural point. the interesting point about that therefor is that the substance of the decision, which revolves around whether the medical exemption he received was good enough, or whether it is necessary that all players beat double vaccinated was not dealt with by this particular court. it was dealt four in procedural terms only. the reason that becomes interesting is now we switch to, as your correspondent said, another minister�*s decision. and ministerfor immigration, who in their discretion can decide not... or to cancel any visa and to effectively deport novak djokovic in
their total discretion. that is where it becomes interesting. and where it becomes interesting. and what is your _ where it becomes interesting. and what is your reading on that, professor anderson, given the controversy that the australian government has taken such a strong stance on this? there has been a pretty robust reaction i think it�*s fair to say from the serbian government. taking all of that into account, how do you think this will go? account, how do you think this will yo? , , account, how do you think this will io? , , ., , . ., go? this is a wide discretion. it can be done — go? this is a wide discretion. it can be done in _ go? this is a wide discretion. it can be done in the _ go? this is a wide discretion. it can be done in the public- go? this is a wide discretion. it. can be done in the public interest, so in this ground is on public health. the minister in question and the prime minister today has reiterated that as far as they are concerned, people in the status of novak djokovic should be doubly vaccinated, vaccinated fully. that is not the case with novak djokovic and therefore if the minister exercises their discretion, the logic would seem to be that the government will seek to have novak djokovic deported. so government will seek to have novak djokovic deported.— djokovic deported. so 'ust going back to the t djokovic deported. so 'ust going back to the point _ djokovic deported. so 'ust going back to the point we _ djokovic deported. so just going back to the point we were - djokovic deported. so just going - back to the point we were discussing a moment ago, do you think a lot of
people will be frustrated that novak djokovic, those who were opposed to him getting on in the first place on a medical exemption, do you think they will be frustrated that he has won this case on a procedural issue, technicality, rather than perhaps fully addressing his vaccination status or lack thereof? i fully addressing his vaccination status or lack thereof?- fully addressing his vaccination status or lack thereof? i think that frustration was _ status or lack thereof? i think that frustration was there _ status or lack thereof? i think that frustration was there before - status or lack thereof? i think that frustration was there before this i frustration was there before this case itself is that once the exemption was granted. as your correspondence mentioned earlier, melbourne, the city of melbourne itself was the most locked down city in the world last year. it�*s currently omicron, it has spiked ever stop 90% plus of people have been vaccinated. so sympathy for mr djokovic on those grounds is low. however, when we see the legal issues and the unfairness there, people recognise that what was done was procedurally unfair. but the interesting thing now is that the
ball is in the court of the immigration minister and in a couple of hours�* time, maybe even as we speak, we will know a final decision. speak, we will know a final decision-— speak, we will know a final decision. ., , ~ speak, we will know a final decision. ., ~ ., ,, decision. professor anderson, thank ou ve decision. professor anderson, thank you very much- _ decision. professor anderson, thank you very much. professor— decision. professor anderson, thank you very much. professorjack- you very much. professorjack anderson from the university of melbourne. our correspondent guy de launey is in the serb capital belgrade. we heard the djokovic family has been reacting to this, tell us a bit more detail about that and detail of the wider country?— the wider country? novak's brother has been on _ the wider country? novak's brother has been on tv _ the wider country? novak's brother has been on tv here _ the wider country? novak's brother has been on tv here in _ the wider country? novak's brother has been on tv here in serbia - the wider country? novak's brother. has been on tv here in serbia saying the family are very concerned about what is going on, they are worried that novak may be arrested again and face deportation and are consulting with lawyers at the moment. he was saying he thinks it is very unfair because novak djokovic went through the legal proceeding and the judge came to a reasoned decision based on an evidence presented to him. he
fears theirs might be undone due to ministerial discretion which exists. we will hear more from novak�*s family throughout the day. as you can imagine, the media are going bananas. they were first jubilant, saying things like novak beat australia! justice for the serb! now they are saying there will be a tense few hours ahead of us and with questions saying novak djokovic arrested again?! questions saying novak d'okovic arrested again?!* questions saying novak d'okovic arrested again?! obviously this has become very _ arrested again?! obviously this has become very political, _ arrested again?! obviously this has become very political, hasn't - arrested again?! obviously this has become very political, hasn't it? i become very political, hasn�*t it? there is that old adage that sport and politics shouldn�*t mix but they clearly have in this instance. do you think there will any conversations happening between the serbian and australian authorities to try to sort out the remaining controversy? i to try to sort out the remaining controversy?— to try to sort out the remaining controversy? to try to sort out the remaining controvers ? ., �* ~ ., ., , controversy? i don't know who it is thinks snort _ controversy? i don't know who it is thinks sport and — controversy? i don't know who it is thinks sport and politics _ controversy? i don't know who it is thinks sport and politics don't - controversy? i don't know who it is thinks sport and politics don't mix. thinks sport and politics don�*t mix. they are absolutely integral to each other, as we have so many times over the air. in this case as well.
serbia�*s government has been in contact with their counterparts in australia. we have heard the president railing against what he has called the political ranting in australia. a rather more conciliatory approach from the prime minister who says she has been in touch with the ministry of foreign affairs in australia and talked about a positive tone she has received in return. but the noises all around out of serbia is they believe this is part of election campaigning in that prime minister scott morrison saw what public opinion was, as you alluded to in the previous interview, public opinion about novak entering the country was negative. so scott morrison had a chance to make some political capital out of this. ok, thank you very much for that. we will be talking to the chief sports writer for the telegraph about this story at

neighbours looked on with horror, as heavy clouds of smoke engulfed the entire bronx apartment building. he�*s taking his time, he�*s got the baby. firefighters were on the scene within minutes. as they battled the initial blaze from a lower level apartment, the rising smoke proved to be deadly. it was just pitch black in my house — in the daytime. the fire...they were putting out the fire and all you could see is just black smoke in front of my windows, black smoke. into all the smoke and just inhaling it. it's just so thick and it's like you cannot breathe. it's like you're being suffocated. in those chaotic moments, victims were found on every floor. some struggled to breathe and others were in cardiac arrest. later, officials said it was a portable space heater that caused one of the worst fire disasters in new york�*s history. it started in a malfunctioning electric space heater — that was the cause of the fire. the fire consumed that apartment, that is on two floors,
and part of the hallway. the door to that apartment, unfortunately, when the residents left, was left open. it did not close by itself. the smoke spread throughout the building, thus the tremendous loss of life and other people fighting for their lives right now in hospitals all over the bronx. dozens with life—threatening injuries are being treated at nearby hospitals. tragically, a number of children have already died and it�*s feared the death toll could still rise. all 12! units in the building have now been cleared out and residents have been sent to a nearby shelter and then they�*ll be put in hotels for the time being. now, this high—rise is home to a large immigrant community, and officials say they�*ll dedicate funds to help them recover what they�*ve lost. we�*re all feeling this and we�*re going to be here for this community to help them navigate through this. crews are already on site cleaning up the debris, but much of what was lost
cannot be replaced. nada tawfik, bbc news, new york. the government will give details in the commons this afternoon of its plan to spare more flat—owners in england from the ruinous costs of removing unsafe cladding, more than four years after the grenfell tower fire. ministers want developers to pick up a £4 billion bill for residents in low—rise blocks who�*d previously been offered loans to pay for the work themselves. the housing secretary, michael gove, said this morning that the government would be prepared to take legal action to make builders pay. leaseholders didn�*t create this problem and, in many cases, the sums concerned are sums that these poor individuals simply can�*t pay. but it is the case that companies which do have significant turnovers, significant profits, significant dividends going out — they can pay and we will make sure that they will. we hope that there
will be a recognition, of a shared responsibility. i think that most people in the sector recognise that more needs to be done. but if necessary, then we can always use legal means and the ultimate backstop of tax in order to ensure that they pay. but what i want to do is to work with developers because, as i say, the overwhelming majority of people in the sectorjust want to work with us to resolve this problem. charlotte meehan lives with her husband in a development with fire safety issues in east london. shejoins me now. charlotte, thank you so much for your time this morning. tell us more about your situation. i morning. tell us more about your situation. ., , , situation. i live in a mixed type development — situation. i live in a mixed type development in _ situation. i live in a mixed type development in east _ situation. i live in a mixed type development in east london. l situation. i live in a mixed type i development in east london. we situation. i live in a mixed type - development in east london. we have a variety of fire safety issues. we have flammable cladding and hpl cladding but that is not the extent of the issues. we actually have combustible insulation and we also have missing cavity barriers as

charges but the building is in a dire state of disrepair because there isn�*t any money to pay for contractors like cleaners. it is there isn't any money to pay for contractors like cleaners.- contractors like cleaners. it is a really dire _ contractors like cleaners. it is a really dire situation _ contractors like cleaners. it is a really dire situation to - contractors like cleaners. it is a really dire situation to be - contractors like cleaners. it is a really dire situation to be in. i l really dire situation to be in. i understand there is a further complication in that i believe the freehold was sold by the developer to another company, is that correct? correct, yes. that is not unusual. the developer, once it had finished, handed over the freehold in 2013. so at the moment, we are in a situation where the developer does not want to pay for the remediation of the building and neither does the freeholder. so the intention is to pass those costs onto the leaseholders here. so pass those costs onto the leaseholders here. so you are absolutely _ leaseholders here. so you are absolutely stuck _ leaseholders here. so you are absolutely stuck in _ leaseholders here. so you are absolutely stuck in the - leaseholders here. so you are j absolutely stuck in the middle leaseholders here. so you are i absolutely stuck in the middle of all of this. what do you want to hear from the all of this. what do you want to hearfrom the government all of this. what do you want to hear from the government today, charlotte? ~ , , ., . ., charlotte? whilst it is a welcome ste- in charlotte? whilst it is a welcome step in the _ charlotte? whilst it is a welcome step in the right _ charlotte? whilst it is a welcome step in the right direction, - charlotte? whilst it is a welcome step in the right direction, there | step in the right direction, there has been a shift in thinking, especially when it comes to lower rise buildings. my part of the development is under 18 metres, so
it is very much welcomed but there are i think three key things that are i think three key things that are missing. that is that it doesn�*t even look at buildings under 11 metres and we know that there are tonnes of those in the uk. it doesn�*t look at all of the issues with fire safety. so it is going to approach cladding, but that is the tip of the iceberg. i mean, two thirds of our bill will come from fire safety issues outside of cladding. and also, it doesn�*t approach interim costs, as well. as i mentioned, my development is approaching a bill of 500000 and we simply can�*t afford to pay it. people are going bankrupt and losing their homes based on interim costs. so i want to see much more focus on those three areas when the government announces today. unfortunately, it does feel like another announcement that is a half baked and doesn�*t go far enough to
solve this crisis. baked and doesn't go far enough to solve this crisis.— solve this crisis. charlotte, thank ou so solve this crisis. charlotte, thank you so much _ solve this crisis. charlotte, thank you so much for— solve this crisis. charlotte, thank you so much for speaking - solve this crisis. charlotte, thank you so much for speaking to - solve this crisis. charlotte, thank you so much for speaking to us. | you so much for speaking to us. charlotte meehan, who lives with her husband in a development with a number of fire safety issues in east london. pregnant women are being urged not to delay getting their covid jab or booster in a government campaign. more than 96% of pregnant women admitted to hospital with covid symptoms between may and october last year were unvaccinated, according to the uk obstetric surveillance system. the campaign will share the testimonies of pregnant women who have had the jab on radio and social media. ministers say the vaccine is safe and has no impact on fertility. jo mountfield is vice president of the royal college of obstetricians and gynaecologists. thank you so much forjoining us today. at this stage of the pandemic, well, it�*s perhaps you would argue about time that there is a campaign to promote the vaccine to
pregnant women?— a campaign to promote the vaccine to pregnant women? absolutely. we are delithted pregnant women? absolutely. we are delighted that — pregnant women? absolutely. we are delighted that the _ pregnant women? absolutely. we are delighted that the government - pregnant women? absolutely. we are delighted that the government has i delighted that the government has launched this campaign. we have been working very hard over the past few months to try and get the message to pregnant women that the vaccine is safe and it is the best protection that they can have for themselves and for their baby. you have already quoted a number of the figures that are really worrying, in terms of the fact if you are not vaccinated and i�*m lucky enough to become seriously unwell and that is more likely if you are in the later stages of pregnancy or have some extra risk factors. if you are admitted, most of the women that are being admitted are not vaccinated or only single vaccinated. so really encouraging women to step forward now and have the vaccination if they haven�*t at all or to get their boosterjabs, because that is the best protection, certainly against the new omicron variant, which as we know is really transmissible. so much more easy to catch than the previous variants as

about it because we do know that for about it because we do know that for a small... it is still a small number of the overall population, that they will become, could become significantly unwell with the real implications for themselves and their baby. brute implications for themselves and their baby-— implications for themselves and their bab . ~ ~ ., , their baby. we know there has been so much misinformation _ their baby. we know there has been so much misinformation about - their baby. we know there has been| so much misinformation about covid vaccinations throughout this pandemic. when it comes to pregnancy and fertility, has that been a particular target, and fertility, has that been a particulartarget, do and fertility, has that been a particular target, do you feel, for people promoting this misinformation? ~ , �*, misinformation? absolutely. it's been really _ misinformation? absolutely. it's been really distressing - misinformation? absolutely. it's been really distressing to - misinformation? absolutely. it's been really distressing to see i misinformation? absolutely. it's. been really distressing to see some of the information that has come out on social media, which is not scientifically based. but you are really impressionable and you are trying to do the best that you can when you are thinking about having a baby, for yourself and your baby. so when you hear people who seem to be telling you things that are a real anxiety, it is very difficult to ignore that. but i would really encourage women to look at their reputable website, look at the nhs website. look at the rcog website
and rcm web site to get the correct scientific information that is reassuring. please do not listen to some of the social media which is just scaremongering are not based on good scientific evidence bust up ok, jo mountfield, vice president of the royal college of obstetricians and gynaecologists, thank you for your time today. there are reports that the prime minister borisjohnson is working on a plan for how the uk will �*live with covid�* by march. some senior backbenchers are warning that there�*ll be another major conservative backbench rebellion if covid measures are extended beyond the so—called sunset day of january 26th. let�*s talk to our chief political correspondent adam fleming. good morning to you, adam. what do you know that at this stage about what this plan might consist of? because living with covid is a pretty broad term, it will mean different things to different people. and how much is this driven specifically by the backbench
pressure? specifically by the backbench tressure? specifically by the backbench pressure?— specifically by the backbench tressure? , , �* ., pressure? the fact is there isn't a alan. a pressure? the fact is there isn't a plan- a senior— pressure? the fact is there isn't a plan. a senior government i pressure? the fact is there isn't a j plan. a senior government source said to me this morning they are not working on a plan for living with covid long term yet. that does not mean there is not one in the future but not one in the work is imminently fast nevertheless, used to covid being around permanently. when it becomes endemic and is less of a crisis. you can see some of those conversations playing out in the newspapers. what happens to free lateral flow tests, for exa m ple to free lateral flow tests, for example question that the government has committed to supplying them for free to the country for the next few months but they have accepted and they accepted last year that at some point, people will have to start paying for them because they won�*t be a crisis measure any more. i am also told the government is nowhere near even deciding at what point they would make a decision about that. that seems to be quite a long way off as lovers of the other thing being speculated on is what happens to the isolation period? if you are not vaccinated it is ten days, if
you are vaccinated and test negative on a lateral flow test on day six and seven, you can leave isolation after seven days. some cabinet ministers are talking about could you reduce it to five? the education secretary saying he would be in favour of that, if the scion supported it, and this morning the levelling up secretary michael gove pretty much saying the same thing. you know, my approach throughout is to be guided by advice from those with an understanding of epidemiology and how diseases spread and so on. we've already reduced the isolation period from ten to seven days. if it's safe to reduce it further, then we should. but, ultimately, this is an area where you have to balance a desire to make sure the people on the front line are there doing the jobs that they need to do, but also not in a situation where they are further, potentially, spreading infection, leading to even more people being off work. so, as ever, it's not a matter of sort of ideological preference — it's a matter of sheer
practicality and arithmetic. that reflects the latest thinking from the health security agency which says between ten and 30% of people are still infectious on day six so if you let them leave isolation on day five there is a risk they go back to work or whatever and pass on the virus and you see an increase in places, cases rather than decrease. that is the science people are working off at the moment. i science people are working off at the moment-— science people are working off at the moment. . , . ., , the moment. i was having a grumble about how long _ the moment. i was having a grumble about how long i _ the moment. i was having a grumble about how long i had _ the moment. i was having a grumble about how long i had to _ the moment. i was having a grumble about how long i had to wait - the moment. i was having a grumble about how long i had to wait for i the moment. i was having a grumble about how long i had to wait for a i about how long i had to wait for a lift to turn up but that was nothing else to the experience of michael gove. michael gove had been on breakfast television about 730 and we were expecting him to be on radio at ten past eight and they did an alternative story and we heard that he was stuck in a lift. the lifts in
your building art glass so if you happen to get stuck in them... we are showing viewers that picture. happen to get stuck in them... we l are showing viewers that picture. he are showing viewers that picture. the: was about 20 minutes late and he seemed in good humour. he is not the first person to get stuck in that left in the last few days. danehill got stuck in it last week. i noticed her tweet about _ got stuck in it last week. i noticed her tweet about that _ got stuck in it last week. i noticed her tweet about that matter. i got stuck in it last week. i noticed. her tweet about that matter. those lifts to be treated with some caution. i certainly took the stairs. thank you very much, adam fleming. now it�*s time for a look at the weather, here�*s carol. i hope you have not been having any left problems. i i hope you have not been having any left problems-— left problems. i haven't and i am not ttoin left problems. i haven't and i am not going anywhere _ left problems. i haven't and i am not going anywhere near- left problems. i haven't and i am not going anywhere near that i left problems. i haven't and i am i not going anywhere near that one. it has been a chilly start in eastern areas with a touch of frost but some brightness first thing but this cloud has been steadily putting eastwards. the heaviest rain across scotland
especially the west and north and here we have gusty winds. temperature wise it is a mile they wherever you are. this evening and overnight are weather fronts bringing cloud, and hailand overnight are weather fronts bringing cloud, and hail and coastal fog. behind it some clear skies. that is going to be a cold night especially in the highlands where temperatures could follow a 2—2 or -3 temperatures could follow a 2—2 or —3 with a touch of frost. the cloud moving southwards with sunshine behind and a few showers. gusty winds in the north and west. temperatures between five and 11. good morning. as you�*ve been hearing, novak djokovic has been released from detention in melbourne
after winning an appeal against the decision to refuse him entry to australia. that may leave him free to defend his australian open title and go for a record 21st grand slam, although there could yet be another twist. if he does compete, the former wimbledon champion marion bartoli thinks it could be a difficult challenge after the events of the past week or so. i think he can work his way through that first week and build momentum towards the second week but it is more how mentally and psychologically he could be affected by all of this and the headlines. he is the best when he is under pressure but it is more about how the cloud is going to react. if he has a whole stadium against him booing or whatever how much is that going to affect him? it is hard to tell in advance. arsenal needed "more drive and more hunger", according to manager mikel arteta, after they were beaten in the biggest surprise of yesterday�*s fa cup games. they were certainly lacklustre against championship
side nottingham forest, and barely threatened to score — and it was lewis grabban who got the goal that sent forest into round four, where they�*ll meet the holders leicester city — a great result for them but a really poor showing from arsenal. they won. they scored a goal, we didn�*t. we weren�*t good enough on the day and we are out of the competition, which is really disappointing and we have to apologise for. i don�*t want to use excuses with the team that we put out there. i expect them to play better and to compete better than we done today and we haven�*t done it and when you don�*t do it in the cup against any opponent you are out. tottenham were given a bit of a scare at home to league one strugglers morecambe, who went ahead in the first half thanks to an anthony o�*connor goal. it took until the closing stages of the match for spurs to get a grip on the game. harry winks�* free kick went in for the equalizer before harry kane completed a 3—1win, to give tottenham a fourth—round meeting with brighton.
the draw produced some tantalising ties — not least for kidderminster, the lowest—ranked team left in the competition. after knocking out reading on saturday, the national league north side were given a home tie against west ham, who are fifth in the premier league. kidderminster manager russell penn said he�*d sweated all day worring about the draw. he said... "you just want that plum tie, to be rewarded for what we did yesterday, and we got that". details of the draw, plus goals and highlights from round three, are on the bbc sport website. away from the fa cup now, birmingham produced the shock of the women�*s super league season, beating leaders arsenal. libby smith scored the first of birmingham�*s two goals to give them theirfirst win of the campaign, and lift them out of the relegation zone. arsenal stay top despite the defeat, which was their fourth in five games in all competitions.
the africa cup of nations is underway at last and the hosts cameroon opened the tournament with a win. they had to fight hard for it — they went behind to burkina faso — gustavo sangare the scorer. but there was a frantic end to the first half, with two penalties scored by cameroon captain vincent abouba kar. cape verde beat ethiopia in the other game. the tournament was delayed a year by the pandemic. in rugby union, wasps ended leicester�*s perfect start to the premiership season. wasps went behind after a slow start but they showed much more adventure after the break andjimmy gopperth�*s boot edged them ahead — he kicked three penalties as they won 16—13. there was a vintage display from 46—year—old mark williams, at snooker�*s masters event at alexandra palace. he came from behind to knock out the defending champion yan bingtao
in the first round and he used a sensational one—handed shot to escape from a snooker and clinch the crucial fifth frame. williams, a three—time world champion, is still suffering with the after effects of covid, but he went on to win 6—4. that�*s all the sport for now. let�*s stay with our main story and the decision by an australian court to allow the world number one novak djokovic to stay in the country and defend his australian open title. ican bring i can bring you some of the reaction to that. jennifer says i disagree but he applied for a legitimate exemption. criticism should be for whoever granted it. someone says if you are famous or rich many rules do not apply. this one says djokovic
followed the rules and should be able to play in australia. one more from nigel who says rules are rules and people like djokovic should not be above the law. thank you for sending those in. you can continue to do that. thejudge has ordered the immediate release of the serbian tennis star and told the australian government to pay his costs. the 34—year—old said he had a vaccination exemption to enter the country as he had covid last month but immigrations officials revoked his visa. the australian government has threatened to revoke his visa again. oliver brown is the telegraph�*s chief sports writer and joins us from melbourne. good to have you with us. do we have any update on djokovic�*s whereabouts? any update on d'okovic's whereabouts?i any update on d'okovic's whereabouts? , , ., whereabouts? yes, we understand he is at his lawyer's _

put anything past djokovic. he seems to feed off adversity and we are other players would have buckled under this ordeal already and happily taking the next flight home he seems determined to stay on and fight this. he seems determined to stay on and fitht this. �* , ., fight this. broadening this out further, this _ fight this. broadening this out further, this is _ fight this. broadening this out further, this is the _ fight this. broadening this out further, this is the start i fight this. broadening this out further, this is the start of i fight this. broadening this out| further, this is the start of the grand slam season. as we look ahead to other big tournaments, what is happening here of course will be closely watched in the us, france and here in the uk and other places as well. it and here in the uk and other places as well. ., , ., , ., as well. it will, and you see what d'okovic as well. it will, and you see what djokovic has _ as well. it will, and you see what djokovic has gone _ as well. it will, and you see what djokovic has gone through i as well. it will, and you see what djokovic has gone through and i as well. it will, and you see what. djokovic has gone through and the question you have to ask is, for all his stamina and endurance for these tests and trials of strength, does he really want to keep putting himself through this for potentially every remaining major tournament? paris, london, new york. he could
all be vaccine mandates in place in those cities. by later in the air. we have this interesting scenario where you have the three greatest players of all time tied on 20 grand slam titles each. are any of them going to get a 21st? federer is injured, nadal is not at his best and djokovic seems to be making life incredibly difficult for himself to travel anywhere, so it is kind of a fascinating holding pattern.

themselves and colleagues. these include workers in energy and power infrastructure, police and fire service control rooms, border force, and food distribution and processing. network rail said its workers in big signalling centres and control rooms have received hundreds of tests, but it is not clear whether train drivers will be included at this early stage. energy workers — critical to keeping the lights on during the long winter nights — have been asked to test daily. wholesale distributors of food and drink have also begun to receive tests to try to ensure that shop shelves are restocked. at the moment, it is only a request to test and not a requirement. but the government believes daily testing of critical workers will keep essential services running and stop the record absence numbers from growing higher. simon browning, bbc news. morrisons says it�*ll scrap the use by dates on most of its milk to prevent millions of perfectly good pints being poured down the drain.
from the end of this month, the supermarket chain will put a best before date on 90% of its own—brand milk, and encourage customers to use a sniff test to check quality. ben boulos has spent the morning at dairy farm in chippenham. here at the brinkworth dairy, they really care — the farmers who run this place really care about the milk that gets produced here. some of it goes direct to customers. some of it gets sent to farmers�* markets. to a milk co—operative. the sad fact is, though, so much milk around the uk gets wasted every single year. in fact, it is the third most wasted food product by households. after bread and potatoes. we throw away something like three million cups of milk every single day. and to make that milk that actually gets wasted takes about 30,000 hectares of land. so that�*s a lot of effort and a lot of waste.
so what morrisons are doing, morison�*s is the fourth biggest supermarket in the uk, is changing the labels on the milk that they sell. so instead of the use by date they currently have, they�*re switching it to a best before date. now, that tells you that it might not be at its best, but it�*s still safe to drink. let�*s find out what to make of all this. we can speak to marcus gover from a sustainability charity. marcus, what do you think of this move? do you think others may follow suit? this is fantastic. we really welcome this and we really look forward to others following suit. this is about food waste, but it�*s also about climate change. by putting food and drink on our table in the uk is about 35% of all of our greenhouse gas emissions. and when you look at how much we waste stopping food waste is critical — food waste feeds climate change. and we know that people are confused by labels so if we can get more labels to best before, which means, as you just said, perfectly safe to eat afterwards
or drink afterwards. but we�*re being asked to do this so—called sniff test. is that safe, though? well, this is about when when a food is best before it means it�*s not a food safety issue, which means you can use your own judgment about when it�*s still good to eat or drink. it�*s about quality of it. so you can sniff or taste or see whether milk is still good to drink. it�*s not about food safety. ok, so if we look at more more broadly the the food waste issue, what can people do to try and cut the amount they waste in food? food waste is huge. nine and a half million tonnes of food waste in the uk, 25 million tonnes of co2 emissions associated with that. that�*s the same as a third of all the cars on the road. what you can do, you can do your part to help with climate change, and you can do that by planning. i picture the fridge for going shopping, so i buy what i need. i�*ve got to make sure i store my food properly. so if i go to waste dotcom, there are tips that tell me
about how to store things. fresh fruit and veg in the fridge, for instance. really important. i�*m making sure the fridge is the right temperature. the fridge needs to be five degrees celsius or less. absolutely critical. understanding the difference being used by and best before critical as well. and then freezing, freezing sort of pauses everything — you can freeze right up to the use by date or the best before date. all those things make a huge difference. it�*s also £700 that the average family is throwing away, as well as the average family could save £700 a year by not wasting food. so huge, huge impact here. very much so. thank you very much, gauvin. so just remind you the change that morrisons are making on their milk, they�*re going to take off the use by date and replace it with a best before date.
american and russian officials will hold talks in geneva later at the start of a crucial week of diplomacy that could shape the future of ukraine and the security of europe. western allies want to stop russia from invading ukraine, but moscow is looking for concessions from nato. our diplomatic correspondent james landale has this report. the stakes are high. russia has massed 100,000 troops outside ukraine. the united states has threatened severe economic retaliation if they cross the border, and at the same time, russia is calling on nato to pull back its own forces from eastern europe. russian diplomats arrived in geneva last night for their first face—to—face talks with american counterparts about the stand—off, but both sides have different expectations. the united states, along with western allies, is focused on deterring russia from invading ukraine — something it denies planning. it�*s clear that we�*ve offered him two paths forward.
one is through diplomacy and dialogue, the other is through deterrence and massive consequences for russia if it renews its aggression against ukraine. and we�*re about to test the proposition of which path president putin wants to take this week. but russia wants today�*s talks to be all about its demands for nato to withdraw troops from former soviet countries and to rule out membership for ukraine. western officials say these demands are unrealistic but president putin might use their rejection as a pretext for invasion. others say he�*s threatening war to secure concessions. us officials say they won�*t cut troop numbers in europe, but they might discuss curbs on military exercises and missile deployments. both sides played down expectations of a deal over ukraine, or european security, but these talks may show if mr putin is serious about diplomacy or war. james landale, bbc news, geneva.

frosty one for some, this cloud is heading towards the east. heavy rain across parts of scotland and gusty winds especially in the north and west. it is going to be a mild they wherever you are. these are the temperatures in western areas. doctor as high as east but above average for the time of year which is roughly five to eight or maybe nine in the south—west of england. this evening and overnight the weather fronts push slowly southwards and eastwards. you can see the cloud going with them. you can see some rain and drizzle. clear skies follow on better peppering of showers in the north and west and here is quite windy. under the clear skies and sheltered areas particularly sheltered glens of scotland the temperature could fall below freezing so for you there is likely to be some frost. here are the two weather fronts drifting southwards. the isobars tell you that it southwards. the isobars tell you thatitis southwards. the isobars tell you that it is going to be windy, but not as windy as today. a lot of dry
weather and a lot of clear skies follow one behind these weather fronts but still a peppering of showers in the north and west with gusty winds and still some hill folk and coastal fog and also some drizzle. these are rare temperatures. six in aberdeen to 12 as we get down towards plymouth. high pressure building across as over the next few days and you can see the source of this mild air represented by the yellow. as we head into thursday there will be some frost for some of us and some folk which will be slow to left but a lot of dry weather. still if few showers across the north and west where it will be breezy. this is what you can expect on wednesday, between nine and about 11 degrees. higher temperatures tended to be across the far north and west. beyond that we continue with settled conditions, frost and some fog by night which will be slow to clear.
