the museum's walls of glass, a virtue that had also become a challenge. the building had been suffering from the wet west coast weather. it is now more watertight, less vulnerable to changes in heat. the hope is that the collection will once again make culture and history more accessible to all, as the country emerges from covid. a place like this gives that communal coming together that we did not have during lockdown. but the collections themselves, they are the real glory here. the burrell is a stunning space in a unique location. with its persian carpets, egyptian antiquities, pottery and sculptures, this huge personal collection, gifted to the city many decades ago offers a unique window on the world. lorna gordon, bbc news, at the burrell collection in glasgow. beautiful. time for a look at the weather.

here's darren bett. hello, a bit colder than yesterday across the uk, highest temperatures today generally across western areas where we the best of the sunshine. getting colder still in the next few days, some really cold air is sitting to the north of scotland but as we develop a northerly wind we will bring down that cold arctic air, bringing sleet and snow with it, but given the time of year they should not be too much. lots of cloud around through the rest of the day, best of sunshine to the west, some showers breaking out and across parts of western england where it was cool yesterday, really cold areas across northern scotland is behind this weather front which is actually bringing a bunch of clouds and wet weather southwards across scotland today and overnight. some sleet and snow over the hills, wetter weather arriving in northern england and perhaps northern ireland. behind that we get the

arctic air, ice and snow in northern scotland, frost likely here, chilly across southern parts of england and wales, the crowd breaks up and leaves us with mist and fog that is slowly clearing. the shower in the south—west, this main branch of cloud and rain here, some wet weather, to the north we had sunshine and wintry showers. only 5 degrees tomorrow afternoon in newcastle, the last of the mild air is across southern england. the rain we see will turn to sleet and snow overnight, there could be a light covering in southern england on thursday morning, a wintry look on thursday morning, a wintry look on thursday morning, a wintry look on thursday morning with the widespread frost and icy patches. the last sleet and snow clears away from the south east corner on thursday, that we all had sunshine at wintry showers, hail, sleet and snow. a rash of showers for northern and eastern areas blown whilst on the
1:33 pm
strong and gusty winds. the winds will make it feel chilly, these are the temperatures on thursday, particularly cold down the eastern side of the uk. adding on the strength of the wind it will feel more like two or three. quite a shock to the system but maybe only short lived as things quieted down by friday, high pressure trying to come in, we start with a frost, maybe some icy patches, sunshine, wintry patches, not as many on friday, clouding over in scotland with rain, sleet and snow. not as cold on friday, temperatures eight or not as cold over the weekend, either. . ~' , ., or not as cold over the weekend, either. ., ~ , ., �* that's all from the bbc news at one, so it's goodbye from me , good afternoon. it's 1.30pm and here's
1:34 pm
your latest sports news. it's a big night of international football coming up, with all of the home nations involved in international friendlies this evening. england are up against ivory coast at wembley, the first non—european country that gareth southgate's side have faced since november 2018, when they were comfortable winners over the usa. defender tyrone mings is relishing the challenge. i'm is relishing the challenge. really excited by it. it wi a i'm really excited by it. it will be a different test. like you said, there are a number of players who i would have played against individually in terms of playing against them at club level, but international games are still things that i am learning and this will be another test for me, another challenge to overcome. for sure, i am looking forward to getting out there and testing myself against a different style of opposition, different style of opposition, different ways of playing. i think it will be a really good battle. i think it will be
1:35 pm
a really good battle. northern ireland play hungary in belfast. elsewhere, scotland could have been playing for a spot at the world cup later. instead, they're facing austria in a friendly, with their world cup play—off semifinal with ukraine pushed back because of the conflict. so, for steve clarke's side, a chance to prepare for the bigger challenges ahead. it doesn't have much riding on it, except that you're playing for your country and you want to win. we want to continue the run that we're on, and obviously the key games are still in front of us. the competitive matches injune are going to be massive for the country and everybody wants to be involved, which is great. wales will face either scotland or ukraine in the play—off final, when that game goes ahead. tonight, wales take on the czech republic in a friendly. the likes of gareth bale and aaron ramsey are expected to be rested. goalkeeper wayne hennessey will captain the side, as he wins his 100th cap. my hero growing up was neville southall. i know nev reached 92, and i absolutely adore nev. i thought he was one of the best goalkeepers
1:36 pm
in the world at the time. but for myself, a massive achievement for myself and my family. a lot of hard work, ups and downs, injuries. so, yeah, for me, it's going to be a huge occasion and i can't wait. north macedonia have been making big waves in international football. they shocked european champions italy a few days ago to put them within 90 minutes of the world cup. only established as a country in 1991, they've been on a brilliantjourney, knocking out the european champions — a team ranked 61 places above them. signs have been there, beating germany last year, they qualified for the euros, as well, their first major tournament. now they need to get past portugal, who are ranked eighth in the world, if they're to take a place at their first world cup. translation: obviously, this is one of the most important matches - in the history of our football. maybe many didn't believe that we would be present
1:37 pm
at this press conference, but here we are. all i have to say is that this is not a coincidence. this team have something that maybe others don't have. i'm very proud of the feats that we have achieved and we are ready for this final. translation: | would like all- in the stadium to sing the national anthem without music being played, just to see the grab, the energy, the positivism. i appeal that we can do this, because i'm sure if the portuguese people support us as they did against turkey last week, i'm sure we'll win the match. you can find more on all those stories on the bbc sport website. that's all of those friendlies kick off at 7:45pm. that's all the sport for now.
1:38 pm
we will start this 30 minutes of news talking about the talks between the delegations from ukraine and russia. it was the first meeting between the two sides in two weeks. ukraine's negotiator says a meeting is possible between volodymyr zelensky and vladimir putin. saying that it zelensky and vladimir putin. saying thatitis zelensky and vladimir putin. saying that it is possible to to men could meet, volodymyr zelensky from ukraine, vladimir putin from russia. that is one line that is coming out as those talks broke up. will these latest peace talks lead to any progress in ending the war in ukraine? my colleague ben brown put this question to the ukraine ambassador to the uk,
1:39 pm
vadym prystaiko. the intensity of these negotiations and the topics they are discussing is increasing each and every time. i understand that russians now have to come to the table because our military is putting up such a fight and our population is resisting russian aggression, so i do have hopes that this time we will have something out of these negotiations in turkey. and what is the hope, though, initially? just that there is a temporary ceasefire before the delegates get on to talking about a longer—lasting peace? yes, we want to have a ceasefire. we want to also have humanitarian corridors to be opened to be able to evacuate our civilians and to bring food and supplies to some of the besieged cities, like mariupol. unfortunately, russians also understand it and use it to their advantage,
1:40 pm
to bend our will, to bend our delegation�*s will, to show our weak points and press on them. we also have to discuss with them how they will get out of our sovereign territory and how our future system of architecture of our security will be built. those talks are broken up in istanbulfor those talks are broken up in istanbul for the those talks are broken up in istanbulfor the day, but those talks are broken up in istanbul for the day, but we wait to find out what moore emerges and what the two sides over the course of the afternoon. rape convictions are at an all—time low in england and wales, despite more people reporting than ever before. only 1% of reported rapes result in a conviction. bbc panorama has been on the front line with derbyshire police to investigate why. the programme includes the story of sisters, alex and shayan. they reported allegations of abuse by their father
1:41 pm
to the crown prosecution service, who rejected them three times before he was finally prosecuted. the cps said it is working with police nationwide to transform the way these cases are handled. rebecca coxon reports. you've made a report of sexual offending to derbyshire police. sisters alex and shayan were raped by their father as children. for the past 11 years, they have been trying to get him charged. this letter is to explain to you why i reluctantly decided that the case should not be charged. their case has been rejected three times. a significant weakness is that when your sister alleged abuse in 2011, you denied that you'd been abused yourself and indeed said that your sister was lying. i didn't really get a chance to be a kid like i've had to grow up quite quickly. when alex was 11 years old.
1:42 pm
in 2011, she did not back up her sister's allegations when questioned by the police. now 22, she says she lied because she thought the abuse was normal. but the denial created a rift between the sisters. it does make having a relationship with each other quite difficult because there's just always, it's always in the back of my mind that that happened. i think you think i think worse of you than i actually do. i think it's because i have a lot of guilt. myself, i did when i was younger. i just want to say i'm sorry. it was not the police that rejected their case. it was the crown prosecution service which said a jury would struggle to convict. campaigners say this is part of a worrying trend. but alex and shayan did not give up hope of getting justice. but alex and chyann did not give up
1:43 pm
hope of getting justice. they requested a legal review and their father was finally charged. however, they then faced further delays, partly due to the pandemic. it was supposed to be in court last october. then march. then now, january, as well as all of the appeals we had to go through, it's just it couldn't take it any longer. in early 2022, the jury reached a verdict after deliberating for an hour and a half. police detective brett turner called alex with the outcome. ijust spoke to the barrister, . and she says it will be 25 years plus, she would have thought so a good sentence _ and what he deserves. yeah, yeah. i know it's took a long time, - but you've been believed at last. yeah, we're really happy to hear it. obviously, we believed you all along, but he'sl gone straight to prison. so that's that. in england and wales, just 1% of reported rapes result in a conviction.
1:44 pm
so i wasn't expecting it. i was doing the research on how many cases actually get convicted, it doesn't seem hopeful, but all 1a charges, all 12jury members. i'm part of the 1%. i've not got the court case looming any more. i'll never get over it. well, i can start moving on now. definitely. alex and chyann�*s father was sentenced to a0 years, four years after theirjoint statement and 11 years after chyann first reported him. it was a long wait forjustice. details of organisations offering information and support with child sexual abuse and sexual violence are available at
1:45 pm
more now on the service to commemorate the life of the duke of edinburgh, which took place at westminster abbey earlier today. the right reverend david connor, dean of windsor, paid tribute to prince prince during the service. he was far too self—aware ever to be taken in by flattery. of course, it must be said that his life bore the marks of sacrifice and service. certainly, he could show great sympathy and kindness. there is no doubt he had a delightfully engaging and often self—deprecating sense of humour. it is quite clear that his
1:46 pm
mind held together both speculation and common sense. moreover, nobody will ever doubt his loyalty and deep devotion to our queen and to their family. yes, there were times when he could be abrupt, may be in the robust conversation, forgetting just how intimidating he could be. , a kind of natural reserve sometimes made him seem a little distance. he could be somewhat sharp in pricking what he thought could be bubbles of pomposity or sycophancy. on the other hand, we should not forget that he himself was sometimes wounded by being unfairly criticised
1:47 pm
or misunderstood. like the rest of us he was part of flawed humanity. unlike most of us, however, he was one of those rare people who remain true to, and guided by, what you might call an inner spiritual compass. a sense of being called to play a part in the making of a god intended world. as we give thanks for the life of a remarkable man, perhaps our greatest tribute to him, most especially in these times, will
1:48 pm
be for us to rekindle in our hearts something of that call, and to pray, as i think he did, for the inspiration and the guidance to play our parts, however small, inspiration and the guidance to play our parts, howeversmall, in inspiration and the guidance to play our parts, however small, in working for a kinderfuture. anoosheh ashoori, the british—iranian man who was freed from prison in tehran earlier this month, says he's pleased to finally be back with his family in the uk, but cannot understand why it didn't happen sooner. he'd been held in iran since 2017 on spying charges, and was released alongside nazanin zaghari—ratcliffe, after the uk settled a military debt with iran. now, time for a look at some of the stories making the headlines, across the uk.
1:49 pm
the family that started a campaign to investigate avoidable baby deaths in shropshire say lessons must be learned from a major review into failures in maternity care. tomorrow, senior midwife donna ockenden is due to publish her review of more than 1,800 cases at the shrewsbury and telford hospitals nhs trust. michele paduano reports. this couple had already been fighting for three years into the death of kate when we first spoke to them. , ., ., _ them. there is no transparency. it has been unbelievably _ them. there is no transparency. it has been unbelievably awful, - has been unbelievably awful, rejection, blocking, redacted information.— rejection, blocking, redacted information. , information. the trust said there was no need _ information. the trust said there was no need for _ information. the trust said there was no need for further - was no need for further investigation and the local nhs had

1:52 pm
to aled scourfield after two years as the chief constable of cleveland police, dr richard lewis is back at the force where he started his career as a police constable in the year 2000. and he's a man on a mission. he believes wales should have one police force. doing away with those borders means i think we can provide a more effective service. one chief constable rather than four, one deputy chief constable as opposed to four, dare i say one commissioner instead of four. i suppose the concern will be that resources are pulled towards the towns and cities. how do you make sure that every part of wales gets a quality police force under that system ? i recognise that concern and i think there is a way of dealing with that. whether it is creating shadow structures within wales to ensure the number of police officers currently working in dyfed—powys, for example, remain within the old borders of dyfed—powys. if you think that the number of police officers in wales is broadly similar to the number of police officers in greater manchester, for example, they have one chief constable. heddlu cymru or police wales would be the third largest force
1:53 pm
in england and wales, according to the latest home office figures. we asked the other welsh police forces about their views. north wales police did not respond while gwent police did not wish to comment. south wales police did not wish to comment either but when asked about the idea this morning, the police and crime commissioners, alun michael, told the bbc the idea was stupid. a former police constable of gwent police who now lectures in policing told me that he welcomed the debate but thinks a merger is unlikely in the short term. i don't think there is a will or aspiration to do this, possibly amongst the other forces and elsewhere, so i think at the moment it will not happen but i think it is an issue that will be discussed and it has been rightly raised by richard lewis. policing isn't devolved in wales. the home office told us the existing police force structure in wales ensures everyone has a direct say on policing in their area through their locally elected police and crime commissioners and they collaborate with other forces to improve the service they provide to the public.
1:54 pm
but dr richard lewis believes a merger could be achieved in wales by 2030. i have suggested a timeline by the end of this decade. president kennedy, in 1962, said he would put a man on the moon by the end of the decade. he achieved it. if from starting from scratch the americans can put a man on the moon in eight years, i think we can unify four police services into one. dr lewis insists he doesn't want to be the chief constable of an all—wales force but he is determined to change policing in wales and says having one force could make it easier to devolve policing powers to cardiff. now for a different kind of sibling rivalry. two brothers from lincolnshire are competing over who can be the most successful shepherd. the two brothers own a different breed of sheep each and they're in the midst of lambing season, as linsey smith reports the paul brothers are best friends. 12—year—old jacob with his hardy oxford downs, and 15—year—old toby
1:55 pm
with his south downs. but there's nothing like a little sibling rivalry — especially when it comes to lambing. when they're all in the field running around, there's always a lot of competition. we're always arguing who's got the best lambs and sheep and breed. so far this year i've had 11 lambs. i think they're special because they're pretty down on the rare—breeds list. the family's lambing started as a hobby, but grew during lockdown when they couldn't take their sheep to market. with many of this year's 35 lambs being multiple births, the mums needed some help with feeding. think it's time to - feed the lambs, lads. the mums haven't died, it's just their mum can't cope with three or four.
1:56 pm
and it doesn't stop there for mum ruth. i go — providing we're not lambing — i go to bed at midnight. _ the alarm goes off at 2:00, the alarm goes off at 4:00,j the alarm goes off at 6:00. and if we're disrupted at all, well, we don't go to bed! - the boys have already won multiple awards for their farming skills. my favourite time of year because i love to bring new life into the world. but there's one musketeer missing — the third and youngest brother, charlie. he was busy at football training when we visited, but we're told when he gets home and checks on his herd, it's when the competition really toughens up! linsey smith, bbc look north, tumby. we all need some cute pictures like
1:57 pm
that at the minute, don't we? much more coming up from tbm. much more coming up from tbm. now it's time for a look at the weather with darren. hello there, it's a colder day today, the highest temperatures where we're seeing the best of the sunshine across more western parts of the uk, but things are going to get much colder. the really cold air at the moment is sitting to the north of scotland, but that will sweep down across the whole of the country as we get these northerly winds bringing down arctic air. and that means some sleet and snow quite widely, although no great amounts. these are the temperatures towards the end of the afternoon, and it's particularly chilly across northern parts of scotland, where we've got that weather fronts cold air coming in. behind that, that weather front is bringing this band of thicker cloud and rain, some sleet and snow in there as well. following on from that, some snow and some ice in northern areas of scotland. certainly a frosty conditions here later on in the night, a little bit chilly across some parts of england and wales,
1:58 pm
where we have some breaks in the cloud that lead to some mist and fog, which will slowly lift tomorrow morning, looks quite cloudy for many, perhaps some sunshine in the southwest and a few showers. there's our main band of wet weather on the weather front that should cheer up. in northern ireland, wet weather pushes down through wales, the midlands, northern england, some sleet and snow in the pennines, the peak district and some sunshine and wintry showers following into scotland, perhaps the north east of england later and in five degrees here last of any mild areas in the south. but that wet weather continues southwards overnight, turns to sleet and snow could be a dusting of snow even across some southern parts of england. a wintry start to thursday morning with a widespread frost and some icy patches. this is the last of the sleet and snow to clear the south east corner on thursday. and then we've got sunshine and wintry showers, hail, sleet and snow. they'll get driven towards the west on these rather strong and gusty winds as well. and this is the day where it's going to feel particularly chilly in the wind as well. temperatures, perhaps in the eastern side of the uk, only six or seven degrees. but when you factor in the stronger
1:59 pm
winds that we'll have here probably feel more like two or three degrees, quite a contrast from what we've seen over the last couple of weeks. things start to calm down a bit. i think by the end of the week, this high pressure tending to push in from the atlantic, reducing the strength of the wind won't be as windy, but we'll start with a widespread frost on friday. then we'll see the cloud thickening in scotland, some rain, sleet and some snow over the hills as well. not quite so cold, i think, on friday, nor indeed over the weekend.
2:00 pm
this is bbc news. i'm rebecca jones. the headlines... 20 fines are to be issued, as part of the police inquiry into parties held in downing street that breached coronavirus lockdown rules. russia says it will "drastically reduce combat operations" around ukraine's capital, kyiv, and northern city, chernihiv, more than a month after moscow invaded the country. choral singing. the queen and members of the royalfamily have attended the memorial service for the duke of edinburgh, at westminster abbey. the head of p&o ferries says he won't re—employ the 800 workers sacked earlier this month — and that doing so would cause the company to collapse the actor will smith
